AmigaOne x1000 blog: C64 emulation on AmigaOS 4


Epsilons A1 x1k blog

http://amigax1000.blogspot.com/2012/07/commodore-64-emulation-on-x1000.html

Today I wanted to talk a bit about Commodore 64 (C64) emulation on the X1000.

My first home computer was a Commodore 64, and I had a great time playing many classic games during the 1980’s before we upgraded to an Amiga 500.

Most Commodore 64 floppy disk based games are preserved these days from their original physical medium as d64 format and tape based games in t64 format. These files can be easily obtained via Google.

In my case I chose to use the VICE C64 emulator on the X1000, available from os4depot.net. It emulates the C64, C128 and many other Commodore computers of the period (VIC20, C16, etc).

I have to say to be honest that I am only interested in the C64 emulation – and I am pleased to report that it runs at full C64 speed on the X1000.

Thanks to Epsilon!

I myself love some C-64 games, but MAME also

ZX Spectrum

Atari 16 bit

DOSBox

Lightwave on AmigaOne X1000


AmigaOS 4 is fully recompiled AmigaOS from Motorola 68k code to PowerPC. Any software that is system friendly and can open a Workbench windows works out of box or with minor setting tweaks.

Thanks to Petunia, 68k JIT, a core AmigaOS 4 component in Kickstart 

old 68k software works unemulated blazingly fast.

So recently, an old Amiga raytrace veteran Mike Brantley has  demonstrated Lightwave working on OS4

Also, and old veteran, Image FX  simply works

True step forward – AmigaOS 4

Thanks Mike!

Great CommodoreOS support for their free Mint Beta


  • Commodore OS Vision is available for free download by the general public.
  • Commodore OS Vision is beta software under continual development and improvement.
  • There are no warranties whatsoever regarding its usage or applicability for any purpose.
  • The focus is entirely on the system working well on Commodore hardware and usage on other systems may vary.
  • Commodore OS Vision is 64-bit software only, to make the most of the latest technology.
  • Commodore classic ROMs are provided with our machines or purchased media only (coming soon).

And only purchasers of CUSA machine can even be beta testers officially, even everyone in fact is beta tester.

They plan to sell it and have just imagined CommodoreOS FUSION  …. no body knows what it is, another Tesla weapon

Btw, Mint 11 and Debian Wheezy can be installed on amigaOne boards and they are final and more advanced

Introducing Sinclair OS

Picture

Sinclair OS Beta booting.
Sinclair OS is a community driven Linux distribution for Sinclair enthusiasts that is designed to unleash your creative potential as well as enjoy your computing experience to the fullest. Sinclair computers were well known for their text based operating environments, so we seek to do the same, by providing a distinctive, ugly, primitive and frustrating operating system experience. Intended for pre-installation on all future Sinclair hardware, Sinclair OS comes pre-loaded with dozens of the latest and greatest productivity, creativity  and education software the open source world has to offer. Featuring dozens of exciting  games, the latest web browsing technology, a Microsoft Word compatible Office Suite, advanced graphical manipulation programs, 3D raytracing software, advanced software development tools and languages, photo and movie editing and sound and music composition programs, there is no task too big or too small for our new Sinclair computer to accomplish.Feeling nostalgic? Sinclair OS will provide functionality that will allow it to be classic Sinclair compatible, with integrated features to launch classic 8-bit era software via emulation easily. Games and demos for the Sinclair Spectrum, ZX80, ZX81 and QL  can be launched effortlessly. No need to bother with cassette tapes or microdrives, as many games can be legally puchased and downloaded from the internet directly on to your computer.All the computers we sell come with a version of Ubuntu and Canonical can be contacted for software support since we don’t know how it works. Our machines are also capable of running Microsoft Windows (sold separately). Windows can be launched either from a multi boot menu at startup (installed by Sinclair OS), or seamlessly integrated within Sinclair OS itself. This flexibility allows you to easily access the strengths of each operating system installed on your new Sinclair machine.To create the authentic sinclair experience, Sinclair OS is based on Ubuntu with the graphical user interface removed and only the text console for input, we have also changed the colour scheme to black on white just like the old machines.Nearly all features mentioned above are what we eventually plan to have available in SinclairOS and may not be available in the currently released versions mainly due to us not knowing what we are doing and possibly not having the rights to use roms for the emulators but it’s still SinclairOS so shut up.See below for a video showing a beta version of our new Sinclair Brasso web browser that makes every web site look like it would on an original spectrum (it’s not real, we found it on youtube and liked the idea so decided to use it to make us look like we’re capable of doing useful things). 

Sad thing: Amigans supporting fake Amiga company


1) Fake Commodore Amiga domain owned by CommodoreUSA

Nothing to do with real Amigas, AmigaOS, MorphOS and AROS with extreme censorship

Every criticism or anything Amiga related get deleted and users get banned for it

Other faked Amiga resources owned by CUSA

CommodoreUSA Web Page

Commodore USA Facebook

CommodoreUSA Twitter

CommodoreUSA You Tube

CommodoreUSA forums

All under EXTREME censorship!

2) DiscreetFX hosts Barron interview where everything Amiga is sipitted on, all the brave ideas of innovation

3) AmigaWorld.net has Amiga Inc discussions in basement and tolerates their promo

4)  CommodoreUSA Wiki page we fight for less propaganda (also: Talk page, COS page)

5) Amiga4be fake Amigan pages You Tube and Blog

6) Example of CUSA threating people that expose the truth

7) List of C=USA promoters that rarely do help AROS, MorphOS, AmigaOS and yet claiming to be Amigans

8) Barry Tweets
