Toni Wilen adding PPC emulation in WinUAE?
« on: August 01, 2014, 07:09:33 PM »
Seems like there is quite a bit of development now concerning WinUAE and PPC support.

I have written a bit about it on my blog:

http://oldschoolgameblog.com/2014/08/01/winuae-adding-amiga-ppc-emulation/

It will be very interesting to see what will happen. Running AmigaOS 4.1 for Classic on WinUAE might be of interest to quite a few people. :)

I think OS 4.1 sales will go up quite a bit (tho its all relative ofcourse).

I for one would defintly get a copy.

Good!

Why link to a 7 year old thread?

"I think OS 4.1 sales will go up quite a bit ..."

I doubt it, most will probably just pirate it.

Some will pirate it to test AmigaOS4.1, some will buy it.

I think it can be useful to test things compiled with cross compiler, not having to copy the compiled exe file to my AmigaONE-X1000, just to see if works.

It can be also useful for recovery, if my AmigaONE is not booting, to make boot images and or to make bootable CD's.

So I think this can be useful for existing AmigaONE owners as well this who like to try it.

If some one does pirate AmigaOS4.1 classic they are stupid because will miss out on live updates from AmiUpdate service.

If this did lead to a spike in sales, then it could lead to a full PPC emulator version of OS4.

Ah, who am I kidding!? This is Amigaland.

what would be the point in running os4.1 in an emulator ?

Running it on cheap hw :) Testing it out.
Maybe one MOS developer want to make a OS4 version and don't want to buy ridiculously expensive hw.

probably it could sell some os4 copies to those that have never seen it before and think its something worth trying. for the people like me, who have it doesnt make any real difference i guess. winuae is more than perfect for any task i need it for, perhaps somewhere are still some not significant issues, but its just toni who cant rest and leave it be.

Because it can run faster with jit than on real available hardware and you may not like to buy expensive hw to try it out.

A win-win for hyperion and users. A loss for hw sellers.

Probably for very similar reasons to running any other system/setup in an emulator.
