AmigaOS 4: Consoles and arcade emulator 'Final Burn Neo'
Hugues 'HunoPPC' Nouvel has ported the emulator Final Burn Neo to AmigaOS 4. The project is a combination of 'Final Burn', being an emulator for Capcom's CPS2 platform, as well as an older version of MAME. According to Nouvel is is a work-in-progress currently having done about 60%. Despite of that, already now almost 15.600 games can be played.

In order to be able to use the emulator, some archives have to be downloaded and extracted into the same directory. Additionally the project requires the library 'LibBoostyGfx' which is also developed by Nouvel. According to the author this "Donationware": Before starting the emulator for the first time, the library has to be registered requiring an Internet connection. A free keyfile is available on the download site. If instead you want to have a personalized keyfile, you are invited to make a little donation. (cg) (Translation: dr)
