What is AmiKit?
AmiKit is free Amiga software distribution originally developed for Windows, Mac and Linux system.
It includes more than 350 pre-installed Amiga programs ready to use. For more information please visit the official AmiKit project.
What is this "Real" conversion about?
It's a 16 color conversion of AmiKit adjusted to work with real Amigas AGA computers.
Please remember that this conversion, maintained by Retrofan, is still in BETA stage and it is NOT covered by official AmiKit project.
For AmiKit to work, you do need Amiga ROM and Operating System. See installation instructions below.
"AmiKit for Real Amiga" is tested to work with an Amiga with AGA chipset and at least 16 Mb of RAM under emulation, although at least an ACA or 030 accelerator is recommended for real, and it doesn't need FPU.
ACA's accelerators run fine, and you can setup your ACATune for them. You also can use a Fast ATA, Indivision or any other hardware that can run normally in your Amiga. If you are using an Apollo you should be aware of the problems it has with BB2, but RemApollo on Aminet should fix that.
This conversion is unofficial and BETA.
If you have any question please visit the Support Thread.
AmiKit is free, but you can contribute with whatever amount you feel it is worth.
