I started a post viewtopic.php?f=78&t=21458 to try and give some help/guidance of using emulators and my experiences so far on RPi. Without going into a detailed tirade into Retroarch here, just read what I said in the above post. Regarding Amiga emulation, I have got UAE up and running and although “glitchy” it seems to work OK. However, I have tried many game images from a windows UAE Amiga emulator I have and unfortunately, not all of them worked (But hey, that’s emulators for you!). There are some pointers on compiling but as you have requested Amiga Emulation help, here’s a few pointers to get it running -
Search and download the file
Uncompress it, Open a Terminal and CD into the folder. I compile ALL my programs as Root as some Require it, if not Add sudo as I don't recall it being needed for UAE)
Make install (Optional, I didn’t see the need as it WONT run from terminal, only X)
Make a Folder on your system (I called mine Amiga Disc Images)
Search and download files kick13.rom (Amiga bios) and any game images, if they are compressed files you will need to uncompress them! E.g. Speedball.zip to Speedball.adf (the Amiga Disc format) and put them in this folder. (This was probably your issue before, some EMU’s DONT like ZIP’s!)
Run the uae executable and select the ROM Tab, where it says Kickstart ROM file: click the change button, select the kick13.rom file and then open. Click the Input devices Tab and change Port1 to Cursor keys/Right Ctrl, then port 0 to Mouse. Now click the Floppies Tab, on DF0: click Insert, select the game image and click open, now Click the Reset button at the top and the image selected should load!
