AmiKit 12 for Raspberry Pi 4/400


March 2023: AmiKit 12.1 (2.5MB) - HOTFIX


- UPDATED:   AmiSSL 5.8 by AmiSSL Open Soure Team (and re-installed AmiSSL4 for older apps)
- FIXED:         AmigaOS 3.2.2 update was not actually installed by Morpheuz if your AmiKit was already running AmigaOS 3.2.1 before you upgraded to AmiKit 12 :(
                       This is fixed automaticaly providing the Update3.2.1.lha and Update3.2.2.lha archives are still in RabbitHole:
- FIXED:         Startup-Sequence did not turn on full CPU speed if it was previously turned off by a game or demo.
- FIXED:         On macOS Ventura and Linux, EaglePlayer and HippoPlayer shuttered when moving windows. This was fixed by switching them to AHI mode. However, other players using Paula mode may still suffer.
- FIXED:         Minor tweaks here and there
- FIXED:         On certain systems some variables were not saved to ENVARC. That affected:
  • AmiKitReset command did not set the desktop environment back to DOpus
  • WHDload (and some other) games & demos did not turn on some previously turned off variables
  • AmiKit 12 Intro started every time the system booted (when it should have started only once)
  • Morpheuz did not save some of its variables related to AmigaOS 3.2


    Special thanks to Dimitris Panokostas, Philipp Lonke, Sigurbjorn Larusson, Poison, Katazakis, Pi1200, Wawa Kopa Saghalie, K-P Koljonen and everyone else who helped us with this update!




    - To highlight the most important new features, we created a stylish slideshow for you that will launch automatically after upgrade.
    - This major upgrade brings enhanced emulation engine including optimized configuration for better stability, performance and gaming experience too!
    - AmiKit has a new white & dark look. The kitty has turned into a real panther now!
    - There are 3 new theme presets - check them out with Morpheuz. Besides the default Panther one, there is a green kitty one as well as blue one showing High Tatras mountains in my beloved Slovakia.
    - AmiKit has been enriched with 3 exciting new old games: An unofficial remake of Turrican II - The Final Fight!, a Colonization-style strategy game Settle The World and good old classic Mad TV! Note that you can also download the games free of charge from their respective websites (see below).
    - WHDLoad and most of other pre-installed games now run in full-window mode for better gaming experience.
    - CopyMem operations are much faster now. This also means much smoother solid window moving and resizing.
    - AmiKit now supports 8K resolution. Hope you have good glasses, though!
    - Overall system responsiveness is improved especially if using CPU intensive tasks. Just enable "Executive" in new Morpheuz > System Settings > Startup Manager. IMPORTANT: Be advised that not all programs might run as expected with Executive enabled.
    - New Morpheuz 12, the tool allowing you to fine-tune system and visual settings to your preference, is now better than ever.
    - Many DOpus FileTypes have been enhanced, including the Essential menu.
    - For increased security, AmiKit doesn't reveal that it runs under emulation anymore.
    - AmiKit can now use the new AmigaOS 3.2.2 update. Use Morpheuz to install it (at your own risk).
    - Opening files from the Amiga desktop using Rabbit Hole apps has been fixed/improved.
    - There's a plenty of existing software updates too, as always.


    - ADDED:       A cool "What's New" AmiKit slideshow! (Ballada music by XTD)

    AmiKit XE 11.9.0 (December 2022) - A MAINTENANCE UPDATE, MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    We've fixed a few minor (but annoying) bugs for you before we release a bigger upgrade in 2023.

    Btw. did you know you can install new or old Picasso96 into AmiKit very easily by simply placing the new or old archive into the RequiredFiles and rebooting afterwards? Just make sure it is named Picasso96.lha :)

    Oh, and do NOT update the Linux environment if everything works :) AmiKit will prompt you to do so if that is really necessary.


    - CHANGED:  Amiberry refresh rate settings has been changed from "default" to "chipset" for better performance
    - ADDED:       The 16bit HiFi audio is set as default AHI mode now
    - ADDED:       We added Network Settings launcher into the RabbitHole folder so you can now manage your network connections from AmiKit easily.
    - UPDATED:   Fine-tuned Amplifier,AmigaAMP and SongPlayer config so they can handle audio replaying better
    - UPDATED:   Another World WHDLoad Slave 2.8 by Harry & JOTD
    - UPDATED:   Shell-Startup has been enhanced with some common Linux commands aliases
    - UPDATED:   DOpus5 Filetypes for MPEG, AIFF, MAUD and WAVE. Now you can add those audio files to Amplifier too using the right-mouse click & hold menu.
    - CHANGED:  Automatic Linux updates are disabled now. You can always update Linux from its start menu if necessary.
    - FIXED:         Some older Shell-Startup aliases did not work as intended
    - FIXED:         You might have ended up with older WHDLoad version after installing BoingBags or Morpheuz patches
    - FIXED:         Temporary folders for JPEG decoding and for other tools are back in T: now
    - FIXED:         The Support Forum link in the Linux start menu works now
    - FIXED:         Some catalogs files were misplaced.
    - NOTE:          Due to a bug in Amiberry AHI routine, currently only Amplifier can replay MP3 files correctly. That will be fixed in future Amiberry update, of course.

    Simply launch HippoPlayer, press the Play button and choose a song from the PaulVanDerValk folder. Just keep in mind that one Medley song includes multiple subsongs! For example, Imploder4 includes nine subsongs while the main tune is the very last one :) Same for the Combat song. Use the >| button to play the next subsong (or just press the Right Arrow key).
    Oh, and we've added Medley DOpus filetype, so you can simply double-click any .mso music file to play it instantly :)

    AmiKit XE 11.5.0 (April 2021) - BIG RELEASE FOR RASPBERRY PI 4/400!

    We’ve been hard at work on a bucketload of improvements, updates and fixes to make this release the best AmiKit we’ve ever released.
    In fact, we put so much work into this, that we had no time left to write down a proper and detailed changelog. But it will come sooner or later! ;-)
