Okay

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

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

ROMs

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?
