SCREENSHOT:

OS4.1 look for AmiKitX 10.4.1:

Image shows AmiKitX 10.4.1. with lots of small custom tweaks I made during a couple of hours

I don't have AmiDock, so I created a fake one
In the bottom right of the screen is a custom AmiDock background image, I created it in Gimp, and saved the dock background as part of the wallpaper, and then just placed the icons on top of the wallpaper in AmigaOs3.9/AmiKitX, so it looks like a nice AmiDock

A small video of this OS4.1 setup with RabbitHole and Amiga programs working at the same time, will be posted later

VIDEO:

As promised here is a video showing some AmigaOs3.9 and RabbitHole programs running in my OS4.1 Theme for AmiKitX 10.4.1.

(The lag / slowdown in the video is ONLY because of the recording of the emulated Amiga, In real life AmiKitX / Amiga runs perfectly at 100% full speed, no lag, no slowdown! )


All customization done by amikit_noob is intended only for my personal/private use, NOT in anyway commercial use!


Just a "proof of concept" to see how far I could take my emulated highend Amiga (AmiKitX).

I have thought about doing this exact setup, for some years now, and I just had to do it!

To create my own super Amiga, (a super fun experience ) is now possible (even on very low-end hardware built from parts I had laying around and an old used/refurbished PC bought for about 100 dollars!

And I run it on my 42 inch flat screen widescreen display (a big TV just seems right for the Amiga, instead of my small oldschool 14 inch 4:3 CRT tv, that my Amiga500 / C64 breadbin was hooked up to, in my childhood). Never in a million years would my teenage self believe, that years later I would have the most powerfull Amiga ever LOL

All thanks to AmiKitX 10.4.1

Thanks
