Hi guys I just wanted to share this with anybody who might be wanting a way of having native Amiga and RTG over H D M I basically some games will run on the Amiga version of UAE and with a little tweaking are semi playable... i mean its proof of concept at best but I was just playing Dizzy prince of the yolkfolk at around 3 quarters of its full speed for a good half hour. I was actually wondering if there is a newer version of amiga UAE that migh be a little better optimised? Anyway its a fun experiment to try so I recommend giving it a go if you find yourself with half hour spare :P

yeah I had a little play with it too. I was pretty surprised how well it ran... slow yes, but running, yes...

oh god I've just got the thread title reference - that's embarrassing. strike one for not having had coffee yet this morning.

like PC-Task/Fusion/etc. will it ever get further development? rather than full emulation, could the VM's internal system calls be routed through direct to available 68k/chipset hardware? I suspect we'll never know...
