Thanks in advance.

And if you can tell me how to perfect.

I too would like to know if this is agnostic. I asked years ago and was told they didn't know. Has anybody tried this on non x86 architecture?

Like the topis says, this is for Windows, Mac and Linux. It is built on WinUAE emulator.

Yes. The Raspberry Pi edition works on ARM architecture thanks to Amiberry emulator. AmiKit also works on real 68k Amiga with V2 accelerator board.

So the Linux version is architecture dependent then correct?

I thought Jan said that he wouldn’t be supporting AmiKit on Vampire as it wasn’t Amiga compatible enough or something to the affect a while back ago? Not sure if that changed recently ?

There is a Linux edition built on WinUAE emulator that runs on any x64 Intel Linux distro (eg. Ubuntu) capable of running PlayOnLinux.
And there's already mentioned Raspberry Pi edition built on Amiberry emulator that runs on RPi4 or RPi400.

That was said about Vampire V4, not V2.

Will AmiKit work on Vampire V4+ in the near future?

@newlight

Could try using RunInUAE in the Emulation drawer. Backup Workbench first inside just incase. Then try unpacking to RAM. Open up emulator. Install from host RAM disk. Might need to set up real HDF as on OS4 UAE VHD folder crashes on write.

It always worked on the V4. Actually, it was developed on it.
