FS-UAE 2.0 Beta Posted on 2012-10-19 by FrodeSolheim A beta version of FS-UAE 2.0 can now be downloaded. A user-friendly configuration GUI (FS-UAE Launcher) is now included with FS-UAE, so you don’t have to edit config files any more 🙂
Android, when?? Please..the most cheap gadgets has android inside, so would be great if FS UAE can be ported to the second most popular OS in the world.
It would indeed be fun to port FS-UAE to Android, but I currently have many plans for the desktop version -and I don’t have time to focus on both at the same time :-/ Besides, it is quite likely that the “cheap gadgets” would not be able to run the emulation at full speed anyway. High-end Android devices might be able to run the emulation at full speed with lower accuracy.
Hmm, works fine on my other machine with 12.10.
Jesus Christ the launcher is slick .. donation worthy.
Thanks 🙂 (Added your name to the contributions page)
Thank you for all your awesome work on this project. Enjoying Turrican 2 on Linux thanks to you 🙂
The configuration GUI fails on Ubuntu 12.10 – seemingly Python can not import the wx libraries. Missing dependency in the deb? Not sure what to install from the repositories to fix it.

Turrican II is a favorite of mine 🙂
The deb package containing the “wx” python package is called python-wxgtk2.8, but it looks like it is correctly registered as a dependency in the deb file:
Depends: python (>= 2.6), fs-uae, python-pygame, python-wxgtk2.8, python-setuptools
Can you check if this package is installed?
You should also be able to open a terminal, start python, and import wx like this:
Python 2.7.3 (default, Sep 26 2012, 21:51:14)
[GCC 4.7.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import wx
<module 'wx' from '/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/wx-2.8-gtk2-unicode/wx/__init__.pyc'>
I tested with a clean Ubuntu 12.10 install, and install fs-uae-launcher from the Ubuntu PPA. wxPython was correctly pulled in, and the launcher started normally…
