I want to run an Amiga system... I am thinking or ordering a Vamire stand alone, but want to emulate first to make sure I'm ready...

Is AMIKIT possible on a Raspberry Pi 4?

I couldnt get Amibian to load on the RPi 4...

Anyway, what way would you go? I could load AMIKIT on my main linux box--- but I was thinking of creating a stand alone system on a Raspberry Pi 4... is there a decent way to run Amiga on RPi 4? Or...

maybe just guide me. Which way would you go? I have plenty of hardware - but wanted to create a dedicated amiga system... its own monitor, no other OS... etc.

I dont even know if AMIKIT is a good solution for this; so... any help is appreciated!!

Hi Paulie!

AmiKit is currently available for Windows, Mac and Linux. With some magic you can make the computer look like it's booting directly to AmiKit (at least on Windows or Linux), but the host operating system will be always there in background.

Another possibility is AmiKut for Vampire (V2 or V4 Standalone) which will be released soon (I am working on it since last year).

The official Raspberry port will follow. This will probably be the cheapest and fastest solution.

Meanwhile you can try free AmiKit 8 for Windowd or free AmiKit 9 for Mac to find out whether you like it.
