I haven't got your sw yet but will next week ... Looks awesome and will bring me back to my heavily modified Amiga2000 days. Was wondering if there are any known issues with AmiKit running on mac and still being able to switch to PC side as desired using boot Camp? If not great, but if so I'll dedicate my MacBook pro as my dedicated Amiga computer Thanks for putting the time and effort into keeping the Amiga development going.

Hello and thank you for your interest! As far as I know there are no issues with AmiKit running on Mac. It works even on M1. AmiKit is a standard application, so your boot camp is not affected. I'd say that AmiKit runs faster on Windows, so perhaps that is a better choice if you have Windows installed on your bootcamp?

Yes Windows10 on bootcamp. Thanks for your response, I was going to ask which OS you would recommend installing it on and was afraid you might say Windows. I try my best to stay out of Windows as much as possible. Only ever use Windows10 for gaming a couple times a year now but will reconsider it again after I get one of the superCombo packages, since it includes both. Can't hurt to try both and compare them

I understand The thing is that I developed AmiKit using Windows.

Hi. Sorry to capture this thread, but i can't make a new one.
Can someone tell me how to copy files from the linux host operating system to the amikit running on the pi?
I configured the base path in the F12 menu under hard drives, but where can i access these folders?
Also if i configure a new folder there, the button «resume» gets grey and i can only restart.

Be advised that there is a Raspberry edition of AmiKit: https://www.amikit.amiga.sk/raspberry

It took me more than half a year to make it work on Raspberry Pi smoothly, so I believe that a simple copying of Linux edition of AmiKit to Raspberry Pi will not work - for plenty of reasons. One of them is that they are optimised for totally different CPU architecture (Intel vs ARM).
