Software News : RunInUAE r3 released - Just double-click to run inside UAE!

Resized Image
A major new version of RunInUAE has been released. RunInUAE is intended to make it incredibly easy to run old Amiga games on Amiga OS4, and it comes with an easy installer, so that you can:

* Run almost any HD installed 68k game (or program) inside E-UAE, by simply double-clicking on it! Including WHDLoad & JOTD JST installed games.



* Run ADF games by double-clicking them. (Needs a little bit of manual set-up if you don't have at least OS4.1 Update 1.) Otherwise just drag & drop them onto RunInUAE's icon in AmiDock or it's AppIcon.

* The installer can set-up E-UAE with full-speed Sam-optimised settings. But it can also use your existing E-UAE settings if you want.

* The installer will copy the necessary Kickstart ROMs off an Amiga Forever CD, if you don't already have them installed.

* You do *not* need to set-up any assignments, nor create or edit any cryptic scripts or config files, for it to work! (Unlike alternative 'solutions'.)


It also adds basic emulation of floppy drive noises to E-UAE, which is both cool & useful. There are a huge number of improvements, which you can find summarised here.

You can download it from here:
cshandley.co.uk/runinuae/RunInUAE_r3.lha
(Will also appear on Aminet & OS4Depot eventually.)

sounds great & thanks I'm wondering if the performance of AGA games like Super Stardust & Deluxe Galaga has improved from earlier releases ? or is this mainly for OCS/ECS games..also can I run 68k applications with this new release too

@328gts
DeluxeGalaga works fine here. I just need to set Frame Skip to 1 or 2, using RunInUAE's menu (and then save it permanently).

Super Stardust should be a demanding game, but (EDIT) I found that Frame Skip of 1 seems fine for the 2D sections, while Frame Skip of 1 or 2 is require for the 3D sections (depending on how sensitive you are to stuttering sound). Frame Skip of 2 was *not* pleasant for the 2D sections, so I suggest Frame Skip of 1 as the best compromise on 667MHz+ machines.

AGA games *are* more demanding than OCS/ECS games, typically Frame Skip of 1 is required on my 667MHz Sam440. There is nothing much that can be done about that, apart from someone implementing a PPC JIT for E-UAE.

RunInUAE is really aimed at games, but it will work with 68k applications too (within the limitations of our E-UAE port).

Seriously, my life is not the same since I installed RunInUAE! I'm now spending so much more time with my SAM, running old A500 games, demos and diskmags

Same here. No fooling around with settings. Drop them and play 'em.

@trixie, Coder
Cool, very nice to know :)

Sounds like my coding efforts have been worth-while then!

I did a quick test of the WHDLoad version of Lemmings, and it worked. Most likely the ADF version would as well, but I can't guarantee that.

I don't ask for donations (just a nice email!), but if you really want to then a donate button can be found here. But I suggest trying out RunInUAE first!
