Smooth installation process
Installing the application on the system is a swift process that does not require too much effort from the user.
Immediately after launch the program seeks the appropriate system ROM file. This can be added from the configuration panel, which is quite extensive and includes numerous options for a more enjoyable experience.
Apart from including multiple presets for hardware emulation WinUAE also allows making some adjustments for a better balance between the compatibility and the necessary CPU power.
It can also emulate drives and offers the possibility to tinker with plenty of settings related to both hardware components as well as the host machine.
Configuring hardware emulation
As far as the emulated hardware is concerned, WinUAE supports multiple CPUs and provides control over the emulation speed, CPU frequency and cache size.
The chipset, along with the memory settings and the storage drives, are also subject to customization. You can choose the type of the floppy that has to be emulated and CD and hard drives (a special file is required for storing the modifications).
Set up the host computer
Among the settings touching on the host computer the user can configure the display and the sound system. However, there are option relating to the game ports, too.
There is also the possibility to configure the input options, which include support for the mouse.
Experience old technology on new hardware
WinUAE seems to have everything it takes for proper emulation of the ancient hardware so that you can load specific content and relieve the days of the past. The application is developed specifically for aficionados that know exactly where to find all the necessary resources.
