FS2 is a replacement of the original FS2. You always need the original CD

How fast is Freespace 2 on AmigaOS 4.1? I would buy it, if I know it is playable on Sam440ep and on my AmigaOne G3.

No problem with speed on a Sam but the game does tend to lockup when the action gets more frantic.

Per above, have just checked and I hadn't followed the instructions for installation correctly.

Will let you know how I get on.

Freespace freezes at the "loading" screen on both the A1 and Sam.


I wonder if this will be fixed soon...

I completed FS2 on "easy" level with an AmigaOne (although I started the campaign on the Pegasos), and only the last few missions got rather slow. Perhaps a higher difficulty is more difficult for the hardware, as well. I still have not managed to play any of the mods.

What's the current situation with the older WarpOS games Wipeout etc? Has that improved since earlier part of this thread, or is powerpc.library still a problem? Should we do a bounty for a new powerpc.library for OS4.1?

In a discussion about things for amigabounty.net, the warpos library came up. Initial googling about warpos on OS4 shows that there is a wrapper on aminet already.

http://aminet.net/package/util/libs/WarpOSEmu.lha
Short: WarpOS wrapper for AmigaOS4
Author: Joerg Strohmayer
Uploader: Joerg Strohmayer <nospam gmx de>
Type: util/libs
Version: 16.41
Architecture: ppc-amigaos >= 4.0.5
Distribution: Aminet
Date: 2009-03-15

and at
http://os4depot.net/index.php?functio ... ibrary/misc/warposemu.lha


Is this the same as what was once present in OS4.0, or a different implementation?

Does it work well?

Does this satisfy the goals of such a bounty already, or does it need improvement, and a bounty still makes sense?

Do I not understand the difference between WarpOS and WarpUP?

No need to create a bounty for this since WarpOsEmu from Joerg Strohmayer is very good if you want to use old WarpOS/WarpUP (two names for one thing) programs.

It allow to play most of WarpOS games and can launch the vast majority of WarpUp applications.

OK, another question. Did I misunderstand things, and I should have taken this thread that a PowerUP emulation/wrapper is needed? Or did the posts that led me to think we needed WarpOS wrapper also not know about Joerg's WarpOSEmu?

Anyone need or care about a PowerUPemu as well? Has anyone tried Frank Wille's ppclibemu with Joerg's WarpOSemu in OS4?

I don't think wee need a kind of PowerUp Emulation since very few programs were made for it (and it was damn slow compared to WarpUP).

Regarding WarpUp, if it really had to be enhanced, Joerg could be the only person to do it since he developped the WarpOSEmu but you chould come with very accurate details about what is not working.
