Emplant software

I found an Emplant card, but the disk with the software was busted. The only software I could find is only an update patch for an earlier version. Anyone have a full, working copy of the software that came with the Emplant?

I stuck Emplant.rar with the following contents in The Zone!:
  • Emplant e586DX (1995)(Utilities Unlimited)[req. Emplant][WB].adf
  • Emplant e586DX v2.0 (1995)(Utilities Unlimited)[req. Emplant][WB].adf
  • Emplant v4.2 (1994)(Utilities Unlimited)[WB].adf
  • Emplant v4.6 (1994)(Utilities Unlimited)[WB].adf
  • Emplant v5.0 (1994)(Utilities Unlimited)[WB].adf
I hope one of them is of some use to you.

You could buy an add-on for the emplant card that would allow it to also do PC emulation.

I would quite like one for my emplant card, then I may actually plug it in.. lol

There's not much point unless you're morbidly curious. Reportedly, the Emplant e586 module was nowhere near as well-developed as the Mac emulation. IIRC some people have commented in the past that it performed 386/486 emulation worse than later versions of software emulators PC Task and PCx.

The other thing is that a real PC BIOS is required to use the e586 module. In typical Jim Drew style, he claimed that any old BIOS would do.......but end-users reported something quite different. Lots of other pre-release "promises" didn't pan out either. Apparently Windows wouldn't run on it, which was probably a big nail in the coffin for sales at the time. Suffice to say that the e586 module didn't sell in any great quantity and, as a result, would probably be scarcely seen even on Ebay.

Anyway, there's an interesting little review of it on Aminet which you can read for yourself:

Ah cool, thanks for the info

If I really did want PC emulation that badly I'd stick the Golden Gate 386SX in there

It was just something I wanted to have a bit of a play with really.. lol.. That's all.

I also thought it was funny with the emplant saying:

I'm just waiting now for someone to magically find an e586 module on their Emplant card and advertise it on EAB at some silly price

@Keropi
I know of none on the net. Google Images, Yahoo Images, BBOAH, and the Amiga Hardware Database reveal nothing either. The best bet is probably a picture in a magazine review of the e586, but I'm not too sure there were too many print magazine reviews to speak of. I wonder if Amiga Shopper reviewed it.....

the disks you can find in the tosec collection on the ftp server (use browser friendly link)
folder: "/Commodore_Amiga/TOSEC/Applications/[ADF] (TOSEC-v2012-12-21_CM)/"
or in the zone - emplant.zip

Edit: do you have the optional e586 module ?

here is a little picture and some info about the 586 extension. just a little GAL/PAL chip has to replaced/added.
someone mentioned it should be labeled "P1-0595".
