FS-UAE 2.8.1 - An Amiga Emulator with a great GUI gets a new final build!
FrodeSolheim has just announced the release of FS-UAE 2.8.1, which is one of the best Amiga Emulators with a full GUI that you can use. This release contains even more features that any Amiga gamer would drool over and what's more, it sits perfectly on any home computer. This GUI also features the drool worthy Open Amiga Game Database and FS-UAE Arcade! What that means is, if you have the Amiga emulator frontend FS-UAE installed and all the amiga game files : floppy images, CD images and WHDLoad games (.adf, .ipf, .zip, .rar, .iso, etc), you'll be able to use the latest configuration settings listed in a lovely arcade info display! No wonder Gamesnostalgia use FS-UAE in all their game packs, this really is that good.
These are straight from other users and by simply loading up FS-UAE, scanning the file folders and being a registered free member of the online database the games will work right away with no frustrations via a handy game database update! You'll also be greeted with some fine covers and screenshots as in the above screenshot. So now that is out the way, check out the changelog below and download, this is a must have for any Amiga gamer. ( Please make sure to have the game files and more especially the Kickstart Roms )
