Hi Tomas,

Your options are various to enjoy A500 games again. If you have a Windows operating system, your best option is to use WinUAE but you need to supply your own kickstart ROM images. Alternatively you can also buy Amiga Forever 8, which makes it much easier to setup if you are a first timer.

If you are a linux/mac user then you can use FS-UAE which shares some of the code base from WinUAE but you still need to supply your own KickStart images (You can buy them from Cloanto on any android phones and transfer them on your PC).

This is just the tip of the iceberg. There is A LOT of information online but start with the tools I mentioned above and see how it goes.

You can also use Amiga Emulator within AROS and the best option there is to use Janus-UAE from ICAROS Desktop.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.
