WinUAE - The Best Amiga Emulator

Today on IRN we have our first emulator news article, this being one of the best Amiga emulators you can use to play Amiga games on your pc. it's certainly not to be missed. UAE is a mostly complete software emulation of the hardware of the Commodore Amiga range of computers. A Commodore Amiga, for those who don't know, is a 16/32 bit computer system based on the Motorola 680x0 CPU and a few specially designed custom chips that provided superior graphics and sound capabilities compared to the other personal computers available at the time. WinUAE is the windows port of the UAE software, and is said to be the most actively maintained, and developed version of UAE, and comes with a lot of features and a very nice GUI interface

You may be wondering why this was posted here as new, well ,Winuae is currently at version 2.5.0 Beta series. Today Beta 25 RC1: (Final in end of November..) has just been released. It's not the easiest of emulators to use especially as you need the kickstarters/roms which i'll not provide as you need those legally.  There are plenty of tutorials on the web and even a forum where I'm sure you will get alot of help if you run into issues.

Basic Tutorial

Also available are easy to install OS packages which again you may need certain legal files, but there is nothing more satisfying than having an Amiga OS running through an emulator. If you still have trouble using this emulator keep an eye on the Amiga playable PC remakes which will be posted here on Indie Retro News in the coming months.
