Coherence mode, ahh the pleasures of being able to run Windows as an integrated part of Mac OSX. To piles of bloat all at once!


I don't know much beyond Turbo Basic (he he he), so I'm not sure how this would be done, but what BigBenAussie said sounds logical because the other concept of having multiple instances of UAE running at the same time would be a resource killer, and would prevent the fluid mulit-tasking that we are accustomed to on real Amiga hardware, thus making this whole venture pretty pointless considering that the whole point of e-UAE is to catch up with WinUAE which would finally give us a competent and fast UAE that is not restricted to running on Windows, and therefore held back by the mariad of short comings within the Windows operating system that make UAE seem just a little bit flakey and odd, no matter how well your PC is decked out.

Of course there is also the fact that AROS is supposed to be a clone of Workbench, and Workbench was always fluid and resource friendly, so it would not make much sence at all to want integrated 68xxx Amiga support at the cost of all your RAM, and CPU power. I mean I can't see wanting to have a few classic Amiga apps on my screen, when they are going to make my whole system bogg down, if that were the case, I'd just let go of my integration dreams, and just fire up e-UAE again so that I can run more than one thing at a time without having to worry.

As I wrote, no one said (wrote) anything about multiple instances of EUAE, *unless* the second/third/fourth.. emulated app would *take over* the virtual (emulated) Amiga, or are you fine with seeing the other apps "sleep" when the "offending" app says "hello" ?

@BigBenAussie

It's not that no one has thought about "your" method, the problem is the level of integration this would provide, how would you "greenscreen" out the emulated AmigaOS desktop elements (affectively layers) and "superimpose" those elements (layers) AND integrate those into the host windowing system (every layer must apperar to be a native one) without hacking/patching the emulated KS/OS ?

If you look at Georg's (the AROS dev that did something similar) "greenscreen" method then look specifically at 0:01:05 when he clicks the depth gadget, the window only goes to the rear of the UEA/AmigaOS instance windows, NOT to the rear of host windows, this gives you a fact, with this method all UAE/AmigaOS windows (layers) are only one single "alpha-blended" layer in the host OS.
