Is there anything as Virtual Memory?

I'm short on RAM on my A1200 and would be happy if there is a virtual memory program for the Amiga.

On AmiNet there are a few virtual memory programs but I don't know which to choose or if they really are like pagefiles on PCs and so on.

I know they are not as fast as RAM if any exists but I have a 4GB CF card and could surely fit a partition on maybe 64MB for Virtual RAM.

It sounds like future but would be cool if such a program exists.

I have to say, I have no MMU in my A1200.

Regards

Volt.

VMM on Aminet does the job, but I'm sorry to say that like all true virtual memory it needs an MMU. Get an accelerator with a '030 and stick a 64 MB stick in it.

Just make sure it will see enough use, or it's probably not worth it (unless money isn't an issue).

This thread is kinda surreal for me. I was only thinking the other day of Virtual Memory for my 2MB A1200 4GB CF HD system.

Its a shame you can't emulate VM without the help of an MMU

But, it would be cool if u could use part of your HD as virtual memory on a stock A1200 using some patch/utility.

What many Amiga owners want is an affordable 8MB fast ram expansion (max. 50UKP) board for their A1200. Then they can truly enjoy all the great Whdload games/demos/apps on the real hardware.

Maybe its time to hold a EAB poll ?
