|Good evening all.|
So after finally getting to try Coffin OS and Aros Vision on the V4 I got a tons of questions. Some are actually more related to Amiga in general I suppose, but I`ll start out with the ones related to the Standalone.
As I did not buy the V4 for gaming,but rather to see the different OS in a sorta daily use (not web-browsing/yt/etc,but chatting/tinkering/music-creation),which OS is the one others that are not mainly using the Vampire for games most happy with? I have yet to decide if I should buy the Amikit for Vampire. I have the "Linux" version of Amikit,but it runs WinUAE within Wine and to be honest that is one layer to much of software emulation to decide if its a good product or not. The price for a Vampire-version is not that crazy though,but I feel I`d like the inputs from the community before I buy it.
I find that Coffin OS so far crash more often than Apollo OS,but I would not be shocked if this is because I`m just new to Amiga in general.
During my turbo-install on UAE I did not add anything like roadshow or DX(?something) as I had no idea if that is needed,or exactly what it is needed for,or who is it needed for. On my test run of Coffin within UAE I never had much issues as far as I remember, but when I got it running on the V4 and choose not to use Roadshow, (because I knew I did not add the files in my turbo-install V4BL-setup)but Coffin boots with no net,and the only way I get it online is to go to dropdown menu on Roadshow > Remove device (or something) and then I also choose "network > online" then its online.. Since this is my first extended Amiga usage I have little experience with most of these things.
If I understand correctly roadshow is an IP-stack of sorts (?),but since I never needed it (yet) in Apollo OS or even on my trials in UAE with Coffin OS I wonder when is it needed and for whom?
What is the difference with the net that just works in Apollo OS and if I used Roadshow?
From those with life-time experience with Amiga and lot more experience with the V4 than me,what Kickstarts do perform the best with each of the OS`s available ? Since I have a few different one to choose from and I noticed when playing around in UAE that Coffin OS booted way faster with one over the other (the one Coffin OS came bundled with was slower if I remember correct) it would be nice to know your opinions on this.
Amiga original OS.
I have no experience from past with this either of course,and I`m even a bit confused to the version number system. Did I understand it correctly that Amiga OS 3.1.4 is the most recent one for the mk68 ? I have not yet tried this on the Vampire,but if there is reasons to have it I would install it too.
For those that maybe have all OS`s (or several) added to the V4BL is the reason for this compatibility issues?
Since this is a whole new tread anyway,I would leave it with these questions for the opening,but I do have more to come. I normally go searching web/forums and so on before making new posts,but I found it a bit head scratching to do when it comes to Amiga as the whole community seems divided into so many groups and camps that its a mess,and my questions fits best on this forum anyway since the hardware I use is the V4.
If you read this far,thank you so much.
