Documentation topics are available from the documentation menu to the right. Some common issues and questions are answered here in FAQ and Troubleshooting.

If you have just installed FS-UAE, you might want to take a look at the getting started-guide first! As the getting started-guide mentions, you should ideally have Kickstart ROMs for the Amigas you want to emulate.

While you are running the emulator, you can open the FS-UAE menu or use keyboard shortcuts to control the emulator.

Configuration Files

If you use FS-UAE Launcher, you don’t have worry about configuration files, but when you use FS-UAE directly, you need to specify options either as program arguments or via configuration files.

  1. Greetings !

    Very nice work ! Very easy to setup on Linux.
    Just wanted say thank you for your effort.
    Is there a way to donate to this project? Just as appreciation of the overall good work with the software and the website.

    One more question, it might be stupid question; what is FS in “FS-UAE” short for ?

    Thanks / AA

  2. Hi, I’ve put a game in Floppies directory and scanned it on launcher. The game has been recognized but now I would like to delete it. I’ve tried to remove the rom from the floppies directory and make a rescan but the game has not been deleted form the launcher game list. I’ve not found an option to modify the game list manually. Can you explain me how to do?

    • It sounds like a bug if it is not automatically removed, I’ll try to reproduce. You can probably force the Launcher to rescan by deleting Launcher.sqlite (while not running) and then start the Launcher and update the game database. I’ve also added to the to-do list to create a feature where you can hide individual games from the database.

  3. Hi, I want to emulate syndicate on a flash drive plugged into a chromebook. Is there any way to do this? Thanks again.

  4. Why can’t I choose where to install it? I’m not having this be the one emulator not installed in my emulators folder.

    • Hi, you need the action play ROM file, and it needs to be scanned by the FS-UAE Launcher file scanner (“Update File Database”). The “numbers” show are the checksums of the files it is looking for. The rom file is typically named Action Replay Mk III v3.17.rom.

  6. Hello……

    I am using windows 10 and I am playing the lemmings game. My mouse pointer is moving far to fast. Lets say like 3 cm it goes right across the screen. The mouse utility from windows I have tried and it makes no difference. Is there any way you can adjust the mouse movement….?

    • Hi, there is a mouse speed setting in FS-UAE Launcher -> Settings -> Mouse.

      Also, the default mouse device is usually accelerated by system drivers. By selecting a specific mouse device (by name) instead of the generic mouse, you’ll probably get more accurate (and un-accelerated) results!

  7. Hey mate.

    Im using mac os x 10.6.8.

    I was hoping you could direct me to a older version of the uae software so I can use it on my mac.

    Thank you

  8. Hi, happy new year !
    thanks for your great work!
    I’m adding manually Demos to the FS-UAE launcher, with these names: “- Demo – Groupname – Demoname (YY-MM-DD)”
    I made a mistake while typing the name, and I can’t find an option to remove manually the entry, is there a solution ?

  9. Greetings! Thanks for developing such a great product!
    However, having issues using with my MacBook Pro (OS X 10.11.6)
    Not able to pull-up the FS-UAE menu (to swap out disks, etc..)
    Tried CMD+FN+F12, every other combination, does not work….
    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hmm, not really, any custom software being used to remap keys perphaps?

      You can change the menu key though, for example (put it in Advanced Settings in FS-UAE Launcher):
      keyboard_key_mod_m = action_menu
      Then you should be able to use Cmd+M to open/close the menu.
