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.

Good work This is the first Amiga emulator I've found that can load and play Carrier Command with no fuss. Mouse control could be better. I'd love to be able to use a bluetooth/USB mouse but this seems to be difficult to achieve

Really? I noticed one key missing. The right shift key. It's a key that is very important to Frontier Elite 2. And no, left shift doesn't make a difference. Besides that, it's a pretty good emulator. I wish I could increase the speed of the emulator, because sometimes it's a slideshow with games that run smoothly on other emulators.

Outstanding! Awesome product. I've tried all the free Amiga emulators and this is the only one where the pointer does not jump out from under my finger. The other apps make you chase your pointer around the screen which makes it almost impossible to play games like Dungeon Master. I can't use drive DF1: with this app which makes it impossible to play games that require that drive (like Dungeon Master). This app deserves 5 stars but I'm only giving it 3 until they come out with an update to use 2 drives at least.
