Jag är ledsen.

Hmm, the installer should be unicode...


The Swedish language uses three special letters; Åå, Äö and Öö, the two latter works just fine AFAICT...

Yep, there's a large 7z archive unpacking in background.
In the past I used to have more 7z archives (each one containing a separate drawer of AmiKit structure, like C.7z, Classes.7z, etc.). This way I could update the progress step by step, drawer by drawer. But the overall size of the AmiKit archive was much bigger.


Then this is probably the better way after all...

Oops. I forgot to set the relative paths in the revision I uploaded this night.

Oops. Another stupid mistake. From now on I won't upload anything during nights anymore :)

Thanks god :-)
I will re-upload fixed version, could you please test it for me? I will send you a PM. Thanks.


Sure! :)

Another thing, I seem to be having an issue with saving the prefs.

I found a web page discussing this issue (regarding WinUAE on Windows Vista and Windows 7), see the "Important" paragraph:

http://www.tweakguides.com/Amiga_3.html

I don't know if that's related to the ROM/HDD path issue I mentioned above? Maybe so? Maybe the configuration files should be saved in the user's personal folder path instead?

I have close to zero experience with UAE myself, so please forgive my ignorance...

Speaking of NetSurf (it was the first time I have come in contact with this program) - It's more than obvious that NetSurf isn't integrated to use the Amiga native GUI, which is one of the major shortcomings and probably a big reason to why it's so difficult to use (beyond it's limited feature set), but I must ask the question (look at the attached picture): Is this normal? Is there a setting to avoid this?

It's a bit difficult with NetSurf. You have to set the window size in a file (AmiKit:Internet/NetSurf/Resources/Choices).

Is there a plan to make use of Grunch in the future? That would be a great! :)
AmiKit already has its own live update system.

What issue exactly? To save the WinUAE configuration settings, simply switch to Configurations section, mark the "AmiKit" entry and hit the Save button.

Of course, that's what I do, tried it many times. But after a restart, it turns out that nothing was really saved.

Strange...

Check if it has been saved as Default.

I had to install some Microsoft Visual something-or-other in order to get Amikit to work, even when I used the supposedly fixed installer.
Other than that it's been a real treat.

Thanks for the feedback. The installer is fixed for real now :-)

Hi,

@amigadave,

"Do you have any suggestions on how to speed up the performance on G4 Mac computers? I know that E-UAE is lagging behind WinUAE and has no JIT to speed it up. But I was not thinking that E-UAE on a 1.67GHz G4 would be slower when using AmiKit than bog standard AmigaOS3.1 when running WinUAE on a 500MHz Celeron laptop."

Take G4 Mac computer, down to river, now I will be nice and say gently lower in the river and let go. There it is now sped up. It probably will sink faster then it floats, but then again since you pay for all the excess fat on a G4, it just might float because in all reality Sh#t floats.

I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better

Cool.  I'll have to grab the updated installer just in case I do a re-install at some point.

That's assuming there won't be 1.6.1 etc. installers, and point updates will just be automatic updates to 1.6.0.
Is that correct?

Exactly. It's just a minor bugfix of Windows version of installer. Since no Amiga files were modified inside, increasing version number to 1.6.1 would be confusing compared to Linux and Mac 1.6.0 archives.

I've tried the fixed version and can confirm that the ROM-path and HDD-path is now correctly set from the installer, and the CD-ROM recognition works.

Got my card in the mail yesterday...

Pretty handy I must say! I believe I'm going to keep it in my wallet to bring over and share with friends. :)


So who's the chick holding the card in that photo above?
