but I was under the impression that lightwave was a "Toaster and /or Flyer "rendering program?
yes, at one time LightWave had this expensive "dongle" called a toaster card  :lol:

i got lightwave (amiga) 3 or 4 - forget which now - and it came with a small dongle you plugged into your serial port (or someplace. it REALLY has been a long time).

anyway, i have no idea if this version of lightwave can work on WinUAE or if people use lightRave, or what.

and, have i mentions I never play games on my WinUAE? i use it for IFX and other such things.

I think the 'cracked' version works ok, but it was just the first thing that came to mind :-D  I've only seen it used on an Amiga by one person, but did have the first release for Windows (which was excellent, it even had the Amiga 'A's on the menus for the key combinations) ... IIRC it was labelled version 5, in about '96 or '97 ...

What he meant was you run OS 3.9 on top of another operating system (Windows), on an Amiga that only exists in software (UAE) ;-)

Edit: OS 3.9 comes with AF6 (it just misses a couple of things that arn't required under emulation), and AF6 is a collection that pulls Amiga emulation stuff together in an easy to use (and legal) package.

AF6 is not an OS, it is a software package. It comes with a ready-to-run AmigaOS. AmigaOS only runs on Amiga hardware, so you need an emulator like UAE to run it on PC hardware. UAE is contained in the AF6 package, too.

If you boot from the CD, the first OS started is Knoppix. It is an OS which runs on PC hardware. Knoppix then starts UAE and UAE runs AmigaOS. All of this is contained on the AF6 CD, no other package needed.

If you have Windows installed on your PC, insert the AF6 CD and the launcher will pop up. You can then choose different configurations for WinUAE and WinUAE will load and run AmigaOS. WinUAE and AmigaOS are contained on the CD. The CD contains AmigaOS1.3 on ADF files and a mix of AmigaOS 3.1 and 3.9 in directories used as harddrives in WinUAE.

Concluding the CD contains almost all you need. There are even some applications on it (PPaint, DOpus, TurboText ...)

Bye,

Yeah, what Thomas said :-D

If you find yourself missing something in the OS3.9 from AF6 (once you've got it running), then there's nothing to stop you getting the full os 3.9 and using that.  If you're used to running Workbench 3.0 or 3.1 it'll do everything that could ;-)

Best thing to do now is get your hands on the PC and start using it, once you get stuck in it'll all make more sense!

If you are going to need to run Windows, I have used GriSoft and its very good, but I found a better free for home use virus software, it speaks to you when it has been updated. Definitely recommend, auto update.  go to www.avast.com.  I did tech support for a high speed internet company for almost 4 years. and most problems were due to Windows OS, viruses, or  
sometimes just a loose nut behind the keyboard.  HOPE this Helps !!
