Thanks for posting this. I should point out though that actually the current version for MorphOS is still V24.57. There is always a slight delay (couple of days generally) before the MorphOS version comes out, as I don't have a MorphOS machine and have to rely on Stefan Haubenthal who kindly builds and releases that version.

>at start i get error message "can't allocate potgo bits!".

That means some other program you are running has already allocated those bits in potgo.resource. That will not cause any issues unless you are wanting to use an analog Amiga joystick (normal Amiga joysticks are digital).

>ther is no reaction if i press anything on keybord, also no reaction to joystick input.

No reaction from which game? The stub program that runs by default is just there to produce a display, and will not react to any input.

>what are the controls?

Please read the manual, everything is explained in depth there :-/
It can be somewhat complex due to the fact that the emulated consoles have a dozen buttons or more per player.
But briefly: Make sure you set the "Settings|Left controller" item to what you want to use (keyboard, joystick etc.)
You can use "Help|Host keyboard..." to show your keyboard with the current key mappings. Use "View as overlays" mode to get the friendliest output. "Help|Host gamepads/mouse..." works similarly but for the joystick/pad/mouse.
"Tools|Controls..." will show a picture of the guest machine. You can clicking on the relevant buttons in the picture, which is equivalent to pressing that key.
"Help|Game information..." will show the game's keys mapped onto the guest controller layout.
"Settings|Input|Redefine keys..." can be used to change the keyboard layout.

The 3x4 grid of buttons for the Arcadia's left player, for example, are mapped by default to these keys:
123
QWE
ASD
ZXC
(The spacebar, 4, 5 and 6 keys are automatically assigned by the emulator to duplicate the 4 most heavily used of these 12 buttons, according to the game being played.)
Cursor keys control the joystick direction as you would expect.
Also some buttons on the main console unit itself:
F1 is the START button.
F2 is the A button.
F3 is the B button.
F5 is the RESET button.
