    Amiga CD32 for Ubuntu ?

    Hello,

    Unfortunately for Linux Ubuntu, I do not think that Ubuntu emulates with any emulators Amiga CD32. Is it correct?

    You can with Wine, but a solution for Ubuntu would be possible with uae improved?

    Howto for Windows :

    I must admit I have never tried it. A roundabout solution is to set up an emulated amiga hard drive, install software to run CD32 games and work from there. Not sure if it's worth the trouble though.

    I use my A1200 for most amiga stuff these days, so Im not too up on amiga emulation anymore

    If you wish to emulate an Amiga CD32 which is basically an Amiga 1200 with a CD-Drive you can install uae or e-uae from synaptic or software centre to emulate the Amiga, but you WILL need an Amiga ROM to make it work... Their are Amiga 500/600/1200/CD32 roms out there but you'll have to find them yourself if you do not already own a device...

    As for the games, many sites provide image files for Amiga floppy games and the odd cd32 .iso image...

    I do use my PC for day to day stuff, the amiga is for classic games, though it also works for email (YAM for the win), IRC chat and other little things.

    Its an A1200 with wireless PCMCIA card, 64 megs of RAM and a 68030/56 mhz

    thats cool

    are the graphics cool and awesome colors with amiga?

    I think that amiga had amazing colors, like rainbow, and still regular pc or games cannot offer nowadays. Some demo or games are still today amazing panel of colors and graphics

    I like it. THere's a certain sort of style to it.
    One of the nicest things is how smooth scrolling is, considering the limited hardware.
    There's really nothing like loading up Agony on an A500 with its 7 mhz processor to make people's jaws drop.
