Howto (Aros Vision)

Playing Music-CD

Put in Music-CD. Start Audio/CD Player. Double-Klick on Track and relax :-)

Playing DVD

VOB-Files (mostly in sub-dir Video_ts) can be executed by double-click

WHDLoad

Unregistered Version preinstalled. If you often use it think about licensing it (this way you get rid of first window and support the project). Many games work out of the box but not all. Overview is here. Those with * can be added by integrating original ROMs. Easiest and legal way is to buy Amigaforever. Then you can copy the ROMs and rom.key in devs/Kickstarts.

Manual:

Copy amiga-os-120.rom, rom.key, amiga-os-130.rom, amiga-os-310-a600.rom, amiga-os-310-a1200.rom, amiga-os-310-a4000.rom in devs/kickstarts

Delete kick33180.A500, kick34005.A500, kick40063.A600, kick40068.A1200, kick40068.A4000

Rename original rom             in

amiga-os-120.rom               kick33180.A500
amiga-os-130.rom               kick34005.A500
amiga-os-310-a600.rom         kick40063.A600
amiga-os-310-a1200.rom        kick40068.A1200
amiga-os-310-a4000.rom        kick40068.A4000

Debugging (creating Log)

Run WinUAE by this: “Winuae.exe -log -serlog”

Printing

“Serial-Port” support works now. On Windows (WinUAE) Postscript must be installed, f.e. PDF-Printer works now.

Create ISO

Start Tools/MakeCD and replace .raw with .iso

Start CLI

Start CLI from buttonbar below (right symbol) or menu

Webbrowser

Aweb and Netsurf directly from Buttonbar

Hear Webradio

Download and unpack playlists from this site. Then start AmigaAMP and load one of the playlists.

Watch websites with flash/dhtml

This is a small trick to watch websites with unsupported components like DHTML5 and Flash. Start Netsurf from CLI and put in “http://pici.picidae.net”. Then put in the website you want to watch in the edit box and put enter. The website is fetched as image but with all links working.
