I have created this page to highlight the contributions to this project. For practical reasons, I only note direct contributions. The only exception is that I must highlight Toni Wilen‘s relentless work to improve the accuracy of Amiga emulation. Thank you 🙂 Also, it goes without saying that FS-UAE owes at lot to earlier authors of (and contributors to) WinUAE / UAE / E-UAE / PUAE.
Before even having a donation page, Johan Gardhage made a very generous donation in appreciation of “bringing back the Amiga to Linux”! Thank you 🙂 After the donation page was set up, the following have contributed money:
Robert Carpenter, Fabian Schmieder, Michael Barkholt, Dirk Trowe, Islam Mohamed, Florent Wagner, Jeremy Cunningham, Markus Kirsten, Matt Francis, Thomas Wright, Christopher Kohlert, Fabian Schulz, Luigi Recanatese, Jason Hudson, Russell Glover and other donors who wish to remain anonymous.
FS-UAE has received quite a few more donations than this. I haven’t done a good job of updating this page, sorry about that!
Also, a big thanks to Frode Hansen which gave me a very nice Amiga 600, expanded to 2 MB chip ram and 4 MB fast ram, and with internal CF hard drive and PCMCIA adapter for a second CF hard 😀
The following people has contributed code patches to FS-UAE:
- lallafa (New hotkeys, soft/hard reset, freeze, debugger, OS X disk support).

Testing, Bug Reports, Feedback and Ideas
FS-UAE wouldn’t be where it is today without the great feedback I have gotten from users. Some users have been more active with testing/feedback than others, and it’s tempting to to highlight some names, but I find it difficult to draw the line and figure out who to include on such a list.
But without naming names, I send a big thanks to everyone on the English Amiga Board, as they have been very encouraging and especially active in testing. The same goes to everyone who has left encouraging comments on this site.
