Amiga Forever Emulator Coming To Macs

Cloanto recently released Amiga Forever 2013 and C64 Forever 2013, new and improved Windows compatible emulators of the classic Commodore computers. The company also announced it will soon begin work on a Mac version of Amiga Forever and is encouraging interested gamers to sign up for updates on the status of the new version.

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. While we greatly improved the functionality on Windows, we know that there are also many Mac users among our Commodore/Amiga friends. If you are interested in a Mac OS version please sign up.

This helps us get a better idea of your interest, and we can let you know once something becomes available. Maybe we can even launch a Kickstarter campaign for the Mac OS version, because resources are always tight, and widening the fronts feels like a big challenge. In any case, after this 2013 release, which had a focus on Windows, our goal is to do more cross-platform work.

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 Mac OS 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 Mac OS. 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).
