  • @broxopios I would love to give you more detailed answers but I really don't use the Amiga emulator on my pi. I tried it back when I was trying this out.

    My best guide was

    .

    However, searching back, I can't find anything to that effect. I do find some complicated guides which do ring a bell, meaning that I may have actually gone through all this process, which looks quite complex and painful. This post provides another approach is you're willing to try.

    Going through this reminds me why I ended up going with the PC version via DosBox.

    Sorry I can't help more with the Amiga one but if you end up succeeding do share the results!



  • @pjft thanks.

    I'll try the DosBox too, if i wont get the amiga version to work.

    First i need find out how to make swos 2016/17 start and then try to configure the controls.



  • ok i tried the pcversion via DosBox and runs flawlessly. The only drawback is that DosBox window is small and doesn't fill the whole tv screen. In command says that we can go full screen with alt-enter, but nothging changes.

    That refers to running DOSbox on a desktop like Windows, as for getting DOSbox full screen on Retropie, I had and managed to fix the same problem with getting Beebem working (which was a journey in and of itself which is still not finished, but that's for another thread)

    Press any button while the emulator's loading and change the default screen mode and framebuffer size, that might help.

    The DOS version will probably be easier to get working as DOSbox contains everything you need to get DOS games running out of the box.

    Getting the Amiga version working may require downloading buying the Kickstart ROMS from Cloanto and transferring those Kickstarts to the Pi. I say may require, because UAE4ARM may have an open source Kickstart replacement which might work with floppy based games.

    Once you've done that, you can then copy over the Amiga games as ADFs (not IPFs)



  • @GeoNeilUK thanks for the advice regarding DosBox. What i done and worked was to change the settings from config file.

    Now about Amiga version which i prefer over PC version, i have all the necessary Kickstart ROMS. What i don't know how to figure out, is which files i have to put for the SWOS 2016/17 new patch. Every game i tried and worked, is adf or zip files. The 2016/17 patch doesn't have adf file.

    Is anyone here who want to try the new update on retropie and see if we can play it?

    Thank you.



  • @broxopios the two links I posted earlier state two approaches to get LHA content imported into ADF files. You may want to look into that. Let us know how it goes!



  • @broxopios Going to the page where you get SWOS 16-17, there is a CD32 version. If it's any consolation, UAE4ARM does support CD32 emulation but you will need the CD32 Extended ROM (which isn't part of Cloanto's Amiga Forever Essentials for Android in any case)

    Also, UAE4ARM is not, as I've discovered, compatible with Cloanto's ROMs so you'll either have to go the legal but complicated route of ripping the ROMS from an actual CD32 or try the much simpler method that we don't speak of here (downloading hooky ROMs)

    As for the new update, I'll give it a go!

    LHA is the Amiga's equivalent of ZIP, rather than a floppy image like ADF. I think the LHA version is really designed to be set up under ClassicWB (which I'm not sure if I can link)

    I'd say the CD32 version via UAE4ARM might be slightly simpler.



  • @pjft I totally missed the two link you told me about. Maybe I was focus on DosBox version.

    I follow the instruction of one of those links and finally worked!

    What I did?

    I opened uae4arm and select as base amiga 1200 settings. As rom file I selected 3.1.
    In df0 I loaded a blank disk zip file (blank200) and in drive section I added the directory with swos 2016/17 (the lha file that I extracted on my pc and the folder that gave me. This folder loaded).

    The only different step a made is in memory, where I set 2mb for "chip" and "fast".

    And vuala! The work fine.

    Thank you for your advices guys.

    @GeoNeilUK if you test it tell me how if worked.



  • Now I'm sat humming 'Goal scoring superstar hero' was one of the first games I put on my 1200 in WHD format, the first being an updated version of Kick Off 2, the only game better than Sensi...



  • @broxopios "In df0 I loaded a blank disk zip file (blank200) and in drive section I added the directory with swos 2016/17 (the lha file that I extracted on my pc and the folder that gave me. This folder loaded)."

    You mean you added the folder as a hard drive?

    Easier than I thought!

    As for the CD32 version, it's quite glitchy and I don't think it supports saves, so I think I'll get the LHA and do what you did.

    Exactly. I added the folder (which gave me the lha file when I extracted it) as a hard drive.



  • @MadRikXIV Sure, if you wanted to simulate 1980s kick and run football rather than 1990s passing football...

    I can pass my way up the pitch in Kick Off, can dribble, and can't beat a dive over an outstretched leg in the box :D
