Amiga Forever for macOS

   

We'll soon start working on a Mac version of Amiga Forever, inclusive of the high-quality playback and authoring functionality our customers are enjoying on Windows. If you would like to be informed about updates concerning Amiga Forever for macOS, please enter your email address below.

The preconfigured Amiga ROM, OS and application software files distributed with the existing version of Amiga Forever (Plus Edition) can already be used with different macOS ports of the UAE Amiga emulation software.

Ready-to-run and preconfigured universal binaries of E-UAE and Hi-Toro are included in the Private/Mac directory on the Amiga Forever CD.

Note: The current cross-platform content in Amiga Forever, while compatible with Mac applications, is not as user friendly as the Windows version. It is intended for a more technical audience who is already familiar with emulation on the intended platform.

The additional Windows-only software included in Amiga Forever does not run on macOS. This includes the Amiga Forever one-click launcher, Software Director and Amiga Explorer. Also, there is no Mac-specific installer included in Amiga Forever (the files have to be copied manually from the Private/Mac directory of the Amiga Forever distribution to the desired destination folder on the Mac hard disk).

Although older, pre-Mac OS X versions of UAE are known to work with the ROM and operating system files included with Amiga Forever, we recommend the use of one of the following newer ports and add-ons for macOS:

  • FS-UAE, maintained by Frode Solheim
  • E-UAE, maintained by Richard Drummond
  • E-UAE universal binaries by Jens Weichert
  • Hi-Toro Configuration Editor

Amiga Forever includes a configuration file which is ready to run with MaxUAE, and UAE (for GNU/Linux) configuration files which should work well with all versions of UAE, including the macOS port.
