A new update for Icaros Desktop is available for download.

Icaros Desktop 2.1.3 Download

This release mostly updates and fixes applications, and does not include latest enhancements to AROS code (this will happen next time...). Whole Icaros Desktop Live! (1.7 GB) and an update pack (38 MB) are available for download. Users of Icaros Desktop Light will need to use LiveUpdater with the update pack to upgrade their system.

It is a hard drive in a BOX portable, convenient because I can start AROS on any PC and use the partition FAT32 for data exchange AROS/Win, you can also use the file system NTFS, but still not perfect.
However you can also use PenDrive the installation shown in the video is the same.

So here is the official release
EmuLa v1.7 build 34 is available!

EmuLa web page

If you are coming from a previous release hit the [UPDATE] button to get the latest version
If you install this version hit [UPDATE] to get the last minute change that allow you to run Genesis games (Thanks to Yannick for his work on it).
Change Log:
  • FIX : Removed an annoying flickering effect visible when the first gadget of the most recently opened window was hilighted.
  • NEW : License and update servers are no more hardcoded, this means that they can be updated and changed easily and in no time in case of downtimes or service provider changes.
  • NEW : Now EmuLa remembers last main window's position and size.
  • NEW : Hold down RIGHT-SHIFT while EmuLa is loading to reset main window's position & size to the default values.
  • FIX : When EmuLa was updated sometimes the program was reporting an error writing the preferences file. Fixed.
  • NEW : Added support for label's skins
  • NEW : Added World Wide High Score system! It is accessible by the little cup icon on the rom buttons row.
  • DATABASES => NEW : Support for SuperNES rom set : 2707 roms recognized.
  • SERVER => UPD : License & Highscores server updated for better performances and new features.
Here is a screenshot of the Highscore window


Note about DGen :
I've added support for DGen so that AROS users can run Genesis roms using it, right now EmuLa will execute DGen setting the scaling mode to x2 both in fullscreen and windowed mode.
In the next version the fullscreen mode will be fully supported so that EmuLa will be able to calculate the scaling factor needed to cover the screen area, also the "stretch" preference will be respected.
EmuLa will decompress zipped roms on its own to avoid user panic with gzip and bzip2 paths.

Icaros Desktop 2.2 X-Mas Special Preview with Final Writer




Icaros Desktop 2.2 X-Mas Special Preview with Final Writer (Demo)

Icaros Desktop Light 2.2 Xmas 2016 Preview Download


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! Icaros Desktop is proud to announce the immediate availability of Icaros Desktop 2.2 X-Mas Special Edition, a brand new version of your favourite AROS distribution, based on the latest AROS core files. Although this isn't the final 2.2 release of Icaros Desktop, it already brings most of its new features, including the ability to run native (as usual), hosted on Linux (which has been already anticipated) and... even on Windows (surprise!). Yes, you don't need to complicate your life with virtual machines anymore: if you wish to test Icaros on your PC, you just need to run the installer script compatible with your current OS (no, Android and MacOS X aren't supported. Nor FreeBSD and Haiku, I'm sorry...), follow some very basic configuration steps, and your hosted Icaros environment will be ready to run like any other application! Obviously, there are some shortcomings here and there (Windows hosted version of AROS is highly experimental, you're warned), but people that still wish to make the most of Icaros Desktop can still install it on real hardware or a suitable virtual machine. And that's not the only Christmas gift: in the Utilities drawer you will find an amazing demo version of Final Writer, brought to x86 AROS by T. Deters, Kalamatee and Deadwood. This demo is fully functional, except for saving: you can open and edit documents, but you can't save them. So... what are you waiting for? Head to our download page and grab your brand new special edition of Icaros Desktop, while it's hot.

Thank you... a lot of time and money was spent bringing Final Writer back from the dead. I don't ever expect to break even. However since I can't open the source I do need it to at least pay for part of it's costs.

Will there be a new 68k-release? I'd be glad to support it.
