Omega 500 (UAE)

Omega 500 (UAE)


Omega 500 is a Commodore Amiga 500 emulator for Android, with a goal of providing great user experience:
- focus on simplicity, not configurability - intuitive and straightforward user interface with (almost) no configuration options
- great touchscreen joystick controls, inspired by some of the best games on iOS and Android
- good compatibility with C= Amiga 500 w/ 1MB RAM and single floppy drive

Omega 500 requires 1.3 kickstart rom (512kb) saved into the internal memory as /sdcard/kick.rom

It's a pre-alpha release! Known limitations:
- keyboard not fully functional (incl. Esc key not working)
- no support for physical buttons and external controllers
- lo-res rendering only, graphical glitches in HAM and EHB modes

Please refer to the project website for additional information (documentation, license, TODOs, upcoming features, etc.).

Recent changes:
0.2.3:
"Physical controls" option removed (not ready yet - PM me for details)

0.2.2:
Amiga Forever Essentials ROM support.
Please let me know (email) if there are any problems with other kick.rom files.

Runs great but could do with vibration setting Runs great but could really do with a way to turn off vibration on the joystick and mouse controls

Some suggestions It really works well, I really like getting back these old memories :) however I have few suggestions: it really needs to support multiple "floppy disk" to get rid of constant switching, better controls ( many game require 2 or more buttons, 2 fires and menú, for example. And better directional controls), support for external joypad and mouse ( via usb or bluetooth ). Maybe an option for a full screen. I really appreciate your effort to bring back such great pieces of art and I say you're doing a great job!

Loving this emulator! So easy to use, some load times are long and require patience but so far the best app version amiga emulator I've had. Hopefully we'll see lots of great updates

So close to perfect.... But it seems like the dev has dropped off the face of the earth. Not updating and not responding to emails. Needs a classic style d-pad control option as an option too. A real shame.
