Easy-Start bundles for RPCEmu

These Easy-Start bundles contains a ROM Image, disc image and settings files suitable to make it as easy as possible to run RISC OS on RPCEmu. The settings include pre-configured networking that should work 'out-of-the-box' if your platform supports the Network Address Translation network mode. You can install and run both bundles on one machine provided you install them to separate directories.

Each bundle comes in two flavours;

  1. A full bundle containing RPCEmu for Windows and all associated files
  2. All the files needed to use with you pre-compiled Linux/Mac OS build
