Not a real newbie just a little rusty

Hi to all, I have been out of the amiga scene for a while and as the title explains
I am not a real newbie but a little older and rusty.
Been looking to setup a good emulation in windows 7 64bit, mainly to play some of the good games from the past mostly on the A500 and some aga A1200
I wanted to setup winuae with the whdload packs, and possibly one of the distro,s either classic WB or amikit etc..... For gaming which would be a good way to go.
I have also seen a good in depth winuae hard file setup on YouTube from lemon amiga .
Sorry if this query has been already posted but the ones of searched and fount are a few years old.

Hiya,

If you just want to play games then you might be better off with a Game Launcher front end. I can't remember the name of it but there's something out there that uses WinUAE and WHDLOAD to shows you a list of games so it's basically 'click and play'.

Otherwise if you want to actually use WB a little then I'd recommend installing AmiKit, it comes with a Windows installer so it should be very straight forward to set up.

Thanks for advice, have got winuae with various distros like Amigasys, and classicWB, both are great gonna try the new Amikit just released, I like the idea of booting into the Amiga os instead of windows.
