Amigan Software are proud to announce that V14.09 of the AmiArcadia emulator has been ported to OS4. This is a massive upgrade from the previous OS4 release (V8.3), adding, among other features, the best emulation of the Astro Wars, Galaxia and Malzak 1 & 2 coin-ops of any emulator (including MAME), and the only support for the Central Data 2650, Chaos 2 and Dolphin computers of any emulator. Also, the Dutch and Russian languages are now supported. This is the most advanced emulator of any of the supported machines, on any platform. Now the best Signetics emulation is available on OS4 too. Thanks to Samir Hawamdeh and Alexandre Balaban for their help with the OS4 port.
