Want to turn your AmigaONE system into a multi/OS system? Then these five emulators could be very handy for AmigaOS4! Most emulators will require extra ROMS or operating systems but most of them are easy to find on the internet. Before we begin, it should be noted that while emulation software is legal, downloading the ROM images (a copy of the game in software form) from the internet is not.
This is a port of “STonX”, an Atari ST emulator. It is quite fast and works very well with clean applications, and even with some of the “hardware-banging” games, but the hardware emulation is not perfect. This port requires CyberGfx or Picasso96 for graphics and the AHI system for audio.
Bochs is a portable x86 PC emulation software package that emulates enough of the x86 CPU, related AT hardware, and BIOS to run Windows, Linux, *BSD, Minix, and other OS’s, all on your workstation. If your Amiga is strong you can install Windows 95…
Basilisk II is an open source 68k Macintosh emulator. It can emulate either a Mac Classic or a Mac II series machine with colour display and sound. Can run MacOS7 and MacOS8!
XRoar is an emulator for the Dragon and Tandy computers. The Dragon and Tandy are eight bit home computers based on the 6809 CPU. Initially produced in Wales in early 1980ies, later they spawned some variants in other countries as well. Even if using very powerful processor – the eight bit smaller brother of the Motorola highly successful 16/32 bit 68000 and 68008 family, the lack of good peripherals, non quality software and small userbase, made the computer unpopular.
BeebEm is a BBC Micro and Master 128 emulator. It enables you to run BBC Micro software on your PC. BeebEm should work on AmigaOS 4.0, as well as on most PC systems running Windows 98 or later. BeebEm is distributed with everything you need to get going, just run BeebEm from the Icon.
