hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : New AmigaOS4 Drivers For Catweasel Mk4
   posted by Darrin on 31-Mar-2012 22:50:44 (2671 reads)
Ian "Spiranthro" Gledhill has posted on Amiga.org that he has made some new drivers (v1.11) available for download for the Catweasel mk4 on AmigaOS4:

Quote:

A quick heads-up: at my Catweasel page (http://www.retroreview.com/iang/Catweasel/) I've just put up the latest version of my Catweasel drivers for AmigaOS 4. I've also included the source, and I've already done MOS and AROS in the past, so it wouldn't be too much work to port it to work on those systems either, probably.

This is good news. I have a Catweasel at home and the ability to use real Amiga floppies on the X1000 will be very nice, plus is also has two Amiga joystick ports.

Thx a lot for this new update !

I just got a MK4 but I have to free one slot on my AmigaOne to install it !

I am wondering whether I will be able to play my old classic games through RunInUAE with my good old Speedking...

It's something I want to do but I need some more AmigaInput developer files.

Alternatively, I could probably add support directly to the current UAE build.... but that's more of a hack. I'd rather get it done with AmigaInput if I can,

@ Spirantho

I hope you can. While Amiga floppies will be nice to use, I've been using ADF files on my various "Minimigs" for so long that I really don't miss them. The missing Amiga joystick ports was my only gripe about the X1000 design and I was hoping the Xena slot might provide them. If the Catweasel does then that would be even better.

You could use the new lib from Huno !

HunoJoyWrapper Library version 1.0.0

You can't use the joystick part (unless you're a coder :) ) yet because I don't have the necessary files. I've prodded a few people but until I get them I can't do anything without hacking it into the code for each app, which destroys the whole point of AmigaInput.

Thanks for the drivers. OS4 support was sorely lacking. At least in an offical way last time I checked. Now I know where to point OS4 users who happen to have one.
