I am always excited to try out new software released for OS4. I had seen RunInUAE before but never tried it out. Till a few weeks ago when it came up often on the Amiga sites. What RunInUAE is?

RunInUAE is intended to make it incredibly easy to run old Amiga games on Amiga OS4, and it comes with an easy installer, so that you can:

Run almost any HD installed 68k game (or program) inside E-UAE, by simply double-clicking on it! Including WHDLoad & JOTD JST installed games.

Run ADF games by double-clicking them. (Needs a little bit of manual set-up if you don’t have at least OS4.1 Update 1.) Otherwise just drag & drop them onto RunInUAE’s icon in AmiDock or it’s AppIcon.

The installer can set-up E-UAE with full-speed Sam-optimised settings. But it can also use your existing E-UAE settings if you want.

The installer will copy the necessary Kickstart ROMs off an Amiga Forever CD, if you don’t already have them installed.

You do not need to set-up any assignments, nor create or edit any cryptic scripts or config files, for it to work! (Unlike alternative ‘solutions’.)

Current version is r3 and can be downloaded from the below links.

I was hooked the minute I started to drag & drop my first game on to the RunInUAE icon. I tried some games in E-UAE before that did not run but with RunInUAE they worked. What I love about it (besides the easy install) is that out of the box you can run your games without having to fiddle with the settings for a considered amount of time and loose interest in the fact that you wanted to play some games.

RunInUAE is very addictive, easy to use and shame on you if you have not tried it yet.
