    • Acceptable Material
      If it is a review it has to be one of a game or emulator.
      If it is a guide/manual it has to do with emulation(how to use an emulator etc), not a game.
      New releases - Keep in mind that we check other sites regularly for those ourselves.
    • Necessary Requirements
      You may not copy content written by another person and claim it as your own. Any material found to be breaking that requirement will be removed.
    • Images
      You may use as may images as you like. At first you will have to host them to one of the many free image hosting services available. Once your material is officially posted we will copy them on the server.

Amiberry 5.6.4


Well-known member
Amiberry is an optimized Amiga emulator, primarily targeted for ARM-based boards (like the Raspberry Pi) but nowadays also ported on x86 (macOS, Linux).

It is based on the latest WinUAE, with several unique features on top of it, like a WHDLoad booter, custom controls, Host-Run functionality and more.

The core emulation comes from WinUAE, and the main GUI is designed to look similar to that. However, not all WinUAE features are implemented, as Amiberry tries to achieve a balance between good performance on low-powered hardware and emulation accuracy.

It includes JIT support, to get high-performance results on CPU-intensive emulated environments, like desktop applications. On top of that, there are some unique features developed specifically for Amiberry, such as the WHDLoad booter, support for RetroArch controller mapping, and several more.

Additionally, please note that you will probably also need some Kickstart ROMs. Amiberry includes the AROS ROM, so you can start it up and use AROS with it directly, but most games will require a Kickstart 1.3 (for A500 emulation) or Kickstart 3.x (for A1200 emulation).



Amiberry has been tested on the following Linux distros:

  • Debian/RPI-OS Buster and Bullseye ARM and x86 (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Ubuntu ARM and x86 (64-bit)
  • Manjaro ARM (64-bit)
  • DietPi ARM (32-bit)
  • RetroPie ARM (32-bit) it should also work on several others.

Some even include it in their app ecosystem (e.g. DietPi, RetroPie and others), so you can install and upgrade it directly from their menu system.


Amiberry has experimental support for macOS, and has been tested on:

  • Catalina (x86)
  • Monterey (x86 and M1)

You will need to install the required libraries using Homebrew. If you want to compile it from source, please refer to the relevant wiki page.


Amiberry requires the SDL2 framework for graphics display, input handling and audio output. Additionally, a few extra libraries are used for CD32 MPEG and mp3 decoding.

If you just want to just run the Amiberry binary, you can install the required libraries on Debian/Raspbian/Ubuntu derived distros like this:

sudo apt install libsdl2-2.0-0 libsdl2-ttf-2.0-0 libsdl2-image-2.0-0 flac mpg123 libmpeg2-4 libserialport0
