I’ve done some digging and I think I’m getting close to a solution, but I need a couple helpful nudges to get this done.
I’m trying to get some Amiga roms working. Well, let me rephrase…they DO seem to work, but I don’t know how to operate them LOL. When I fire up an Amiga rom, I get presented with what looks to be some sort of initial startup screen. The controller doesn’t seem to work here and if I attach a mouse for the cursor, it moves VERY fast. After doing some digging, I found that there is a way to bypass this screen and jump straight to the game. Apparently this is done via a config file with the extension UAE. Then this UAE file needs to point to a kick.rom file as well as whatever game you are wanting to run. Then you call that UAE file when you want to play that certain game.
Seems like a (relatively!) straightforward process. Where I run into trouble is it seems like perhaps the kick.rom file I’m trying to use SEEMS to be working…I get an unfamiliar screen showing up with numbers at the bottom, but the game doesn’t load. I’m not sure if it is because I have the wrong kick.rom file, or if there is some other consideration that I’m overlooking.
