It is nice to be blogging again! Thanks all for your patience. I am getting better slowly, although not entirely fixed up yet.
Today though I wanted to take a look at the recently released Emotion media player for AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition on my AmigaOne X1000.
Well, if there was a race to see which of the Amiga-flavors of OS would support both SMP (multiple processor cores) and 64bit architecture, along with the extra RAM afforded by 64bit addressing, it was won by AROS. Check out the video below:
Just saw this one on YouTube. Good to see that classic Amiga game development continues over 20 years after Commodore shut down:
Keep up the good work developers!

The makers of Amikit, an amazing emulated pre-built environment, has released FlowerPot, a set of tools to automate setting up OS4.1FE in the latest and greatest version of WinUAE, without some of the limitations we ran into in 2015 and 2016 (like only being able to use PicassoIV emulation and not higher-RAM UAE graphics, pci bridgeboard support, etc).
It’s not free, but it’s not expensive either. I’m currently testing it and will have a review later.
