UAE is a famous Amiga emulator ported to the Wii. UAE Wii can be found on googlecode at uae-wii.googlecode.com, and is based on the source code of E-UAE. It allows you to play Stunt car racer, Turrican, Midwinter and the other good old Amiga games on your Wii. The port uses SDL Wii.
Untar the binary release on your SD card, which gives you a structure as follows:
uae/ uae/uaerc uae/floppies/ uae/roms/ uae/harddisks/ uae/saves/ apps/uae/ apps/uae/boot.dol apps/uae/...
Amiga kickstart images go into uae/roms/, with the default name from uaerc being kick.rom. You'll need to download this yourself. Thereafter put your floppy images in uae/floppies/ and you are set to go.
UAE is very configurable, so take some time to lookup how the configuration file format works. You can bind keyboard keys to the wiimote buttons etc that way. See the examples in the supplied uaerc.
Wiimote 1 acts as both mouse and joystick in port 2. Button mapping should be filled in here.
|Mouse (A for left button, B for right)|
|Configurable for keypresses in the configuration file|
|Up, Down, Left, Right||Move up/down/left/right in the menu|
|Pgup/Pgdown||Move one page down/up in the menu|
|Enter||Select current entry|
|Esc||Exit from menu|
- Initial release
- This version has only received light testing and there will be bugs
- Graphics look bad in Workbench, but hey - who cares about that?
- There is a menu, but few menu options actually work. Patches are welcome!
Other UAE Wii implementations
"Gouky" has ported UAE4All to the Wii as well, and has now also released the source code for it. You can get the source code here. Unfortunately, the differences between E-UAE and UAE4All are large, so it will be difficult to integrate changes from there.
