On download page there is a winuae config to use. FS-UAE seems to need version 4.

I have updated Aros Vision. If you use UAE then you can update it by using menu "System/Install/Update" and reboot. It includes update of Hippo Player, grabbing kicks, CDROM-Filesystem and several related components and software, CRC-Checksums, encryption and decryption of files, virus protection. I have also added HDF-File on download-page. It is updated also

Today I have uploaded Update 5. It includes some additional shell commands, GUIs for file search and split/join of files, additional packer support and two new window-related commodities

If you have already downloaded one of the two archives (UAE or HDF) you can update from within (menu system/install/update). Startup-sequence and user-startup are not affected by it.

Or you download it from my download-page again:

Update 6 includes updated roms, bugfixed reqtools library, VirusZ III and a number of small improvements.

Who already downloaded the UAE-archive or HDF can do the update from inside (System/Install/Update) or download it again

Additional a short description of the windows:

Update 7. Most important bugfix in rom. In some cases software opening PAL screens did not return to OS after being closed. This is fixed now.

Also:
additional tools
Win98-like Taskbar activateable
Small gimmicks like magnifying glass or eyes following mouse

As always update available from menu (system/install(update) or full download from my website (normal archive or HDF)

VControl has more features, I think it can do this:

- Enable/Disable Turtle Mode
- Supersscalar ON/OFF
- FPU ON/OFF
- Map Kickstart

On Apoke you can find the info here:

I have uploaded and already updated Aros Vision Scalos

It also includes changed icons (Kens icons)

I do first tests with Scalos on X86 (ABI0). You can use the pref files from 68k and just copy it over, they work on X86 too

Even on AROS x86 Scalos is very slow to open windows, much better Wanderer which is very fast on x86 :)

Slow? I do not know... ;)

I am testing with Win Hosted X86 and there it is pretty fast

On 68k it is perhaps slower than Wanderer but it is offering more of the amiga feeling and at the same time more features than wanderer what is more or less on level of 3.1

There is no comparison Wanderer AROS x86 unlike AROS 68k is a missile, very fast even on old PCs

I have never used Win Hosted, can you tell me the procedure thanks !
Title: Re: Aros Vision online
Post by: OlafS3 on May 03, 2022, 01:16:52 PM
download it from here:
https://axrt.org/index.php?tab=download-aros

Abi0
AROS-mingw32-i386-system.tar.bz2

Unpack it... ready. It is is started manually by arch/mingw32/AROSBootstrap

the limitations are no sound and no network. But for testing or using applications that not require sound it is ok
