Please add support for WinUAE

Postby Ffin » Wed Jan 07, 2015 10:02 pm

Please add support for UAE features such as RTG and scsi, and more memory recognised if possible.

+1 from me on that one =)

SCSI is however allready supported so an option to make Z3 memory part of the system rather than SWAP is desirable.

I was referring to uaescsi.device, which would allow directories to be mounted as harddrives, not cybppc.device.

UAEscsi.device is not what allows directories to be mounted as harddrives. It is what gives access to host systems' CD/DVD drives from inside the emulation.

My mistake. Regardless, accessing directories and drives within AOS would be a very welcome addition.

It is not possible to add these features to AmigaOS. Toni Wilen has explained why: WinUAE uses 68k traps which only catch when the instruction is executed by the emulated 68k. AmigaOS disables the 68k CPU and runs in the PPC only. Therefore calling these traps (with Petinua) would just crash.

The AmigaOS team would have to cooperate with the WinUAE team in order to develop a new way to emulate host drives and such and add support for it to both, WinUAE and AmigaOS.

That is correct.

As of today, WinUAE is not supported and we expect everyone to use the hardware listed on www.amigaos.net. So anybody using WinUAE is on their own.

Everything is subject to change of course but that is what it is today.
