playing amiga on pc
So how exactly do i play amiga games on pc?

First Read the How to and FAQ from commodore-ALE, then you should ask questions about emulation in the > Problems section :)

at least, you need
- one emulator
- one kickstart
- some Amige Disk Files
- one powerful pc ;)

Hey dude, you wrote "one powerful pc" => is that so necessary ?

Depends if you want a smooth working Emulated Amiga or a piss poor jerky emulated Amiga.

On my Pentium 3 850, I run at 53 fps with full stereo sound, on my old Pentium 3 266 I ran at 50 fps with no sound.

I think the fact that a processor APPARENTLY so fast does a poor job of emulating an Amiga says a lot for the creators of the Amiga hardware.

If you have less that a Pentium 2 then you may as well not bother if you ask me :)

:help ..so,i have downloaded the kickstart roms...where am i supposed to fit these? btw..i have the WINUAE1340 emulator.

when i have made them in Paths, system ROMs; a window will appear saying that no supported system roms detected...how come?

The rom files should end with .rom and placed in the folder which matches the ROMs Path, by default its:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Amiga Files\System\rom\
or you can place it in a path of your your and select it on the ROMs tab using the file select (...)

There are some roms not supported, what roms do you have?
