FS-UAE Amiga Emulator

Download

FS-UAE & Launcher for Windows

Download the two .zip archives and extract the contained FS-UAE and FS-UAE-Launcher folders to wherever you like. You must keep these two folders stored alongside each other. A Windows installer is currently not available.

The fs-uae-launcher.exe executable is found within FS-UAE-Launcher/Windows/x86-64. You can of course make a shortcut to this to make starting it more convenient.

Plugins

The following plugins can be used to extend the functionality of FS-UAE. CAPSImg provides support for .ipf floppy images while QEMU-UAE provides PPC emulation support.

The plugins must be installed into Documents/FS-UAE/System. For example, the CAPSImg directory should be extracted as Documents/FS-UAE/System/CAPSImg.

Portable version

If you want to convert Documents/FS-UAE to a portable directory which you can move wherever you want, just follow these two simple steps:

  1. Make sure FS-UAE and FS-UAE-Launcher are stored inside Documents/FS-UAE. I recommend storing them as Documents/FS-UAE/System/FS-UAE-Launcher and Documents/FS-UAE/System/FS-UAE.
  2. Download the file Portable.ini and save it in Documents/FS-UAE.

You can now move Documents/FS-UAE to any location. Go to the documentation to read more about this feature.

FS-UAE Arcade

FS-UAE Arcade builds are not done for version 3.1 yet. However, arcade mode is included with FS-UAE Launcher. So you can generally run fs-uae-launcher --arcade to launch the arcade interface if you know how to run the executable directly with additional arguments.

FS-UAE & Launcher for macOS

Download the .dmg images for both FS-UAE Launcher and FS-UAE, and copy the apps within to /Applications or wherever you like. You must keep these two apps stored alongside each other. You also need to choose the correct version for your machine; The ARM64 version is for Apple Silicon (M1 Macs), and x86-64 is for Intel hardware.

If you are unsure about which version to choose, just go with x86-64 which should work on all recent macOS systems (10.13 or newer).

The ARM64 version will run faster on M1 Macs, but does not support JIT compilation. You should be able to run the x86-64 on M1 Macs (with JIT) though of course performance will be affected somewhat by emulating both 68K and x86-64 on ARM64 hardware.

If you have an older macOS version which is not supported by the main FS-UAE Launcher download, you can download a version for macOS 10.9 or newer instead. It is built with older versions of Python and PyQt5.

Plugins

The following plugins can be used to extend the functionality of FS-UAE. CAPSImg provides support for .ipf floppy images while QEMU-UAE provides PPC emulation support.

The plugins must be installed into Documents/FS-UAE/System. For example, the CAPSImg directory should be extracted as Documents/FS-UAE/System/CAPSImg.

Portable version

If you want to convert Documents/FS-UAE to a portable directory which you can move wherever you want, just follow these two simple steps:

  1. Make sure FS-UAE and FS-UAE-Launcher are stored inside Documents/FS-UAE. I recommend storing them as Documents/FS-UAE/System/FS-UAE-Launcher and Documents/FS-UAE/System/FS-UAE.
  2. Download the file Portable.ini and save it in Documents/FS-UAE.

You can now move Documents/FS-UAE to any location. Go to the documentation to read more about this feature.

FS-UAE Arcade

FS-UAE Arcade builds are not done for version 3.1 yet. However, arcade mode is included with FS-UAE Launcher. So you can generally run fs-uae-launcher --arcade to launch the arcade interface if you know how to run the executable directly with additional arguments.

FS-UAE & Launcher for Linux

Download the .tar.xz archives for your operating system and extract the contained FS-UAE and FS-UAE-Launcher directories to wherever you like. You must keep these directories stored alongside each other.

The fs-uae-launcher executable is found within FS-UAE-Launcher/Linux/x86-64. You can of course make a shortcut or symlink to this to make starting it more convenient.

Plugins

The following plugins can be used to extend the functionality of FS-UAE. CAPSImg provides support for .ipf floppy images while QEMU-UAE provides PPC emulation support.

The plugins must be installed into Documents/FS-UAE/System. For example, the CAPSImg directory should be extracted as Documents/FS-UAE/System/CAPSImg.

Plugins

CAPSImg plugin

The CAPSImg plugin provides support for loading .ipf floppy images.

QEMU-UAE plugin

The QEMU-UAE plugin provides support for emulating the PPC processor included on accelerator board such as the Cyberstorm PPC.
