I have seen a lot of videos playing Frontier II on the vampire and the game runs very smooth. But when i lunch it from igame the games run on a low frame rate.
What version i need to download to play on the vampire ?

Another question about ANES the emulator runs slow this is normal what version should i use ?.

Also somebody now how to copy files inside the hfs images in shapeshifter using apollo-os but down now how to add new software to the hard disk images on the emulator?.

Using pc-task how can you copy software or build a hard disc image ?, there's any easy  ways also if there are tutorial some place to use.

Thanks.

All I did was obtain the Frontier floppy disk version and dumped the files to a folder on my Amiga CF drive. I just ran it from the folder and it was super smooth. I believe the WHDLoad version of  Frontier has lower frame rates for some reason. You could try the Cache tootype in the WHDLoad version to see if it improves it or run it in NTSC. I haven't tried it at all.

Thanks going to try this.

PC and Amiga can be connected via null modem (Serial cable) providing you have old enough PC to have the port. Brief discussion EXTERNAL LINK

You can connect to modern PC/Mac too, using either a usb-rs232/serial interface and a null-modem cable, or wirelessly, using a rs232/bluetooth adapter on the Amiga, provided the PC/Mac has bluetooth capabilities. I prefer the latter, less clutter and less chance for frying the Amiga :p With Vampire though, itís easer to use SDnet, if networking is what you want.
