Updated link for Pimiga for Raspberry Pi 3 & 4

I formerly posted info about a beta release of PiMiga for RPi 4 and it was taken down shortly thereafter.  I don’t know if it was due to it being replaced for new features or the name was causing problems (it was called Corona edition).  Now, the newly renamed and re-released Lockdown Edition, has been released and there are downloads for both the RPi 3 and 4, not just the 4.

Due to how fast the other one disappeared, grab it now. Here’s the link and the password to unlock the file as of 4/6/2020 (can’t say any of this will work after today):

Hibernated1 Review

Almost a year ago we published a close insight on this game by Stefan Vogt and Pond Software. Back then the choice was made to “only” review the unboxing of the physical edition, since the game is a text-adventure and, as such, is kind of difficult to visually explain. Said physical edition was just way […]

Agony Remake – No Magic And No Art

The original Art & Magic game AGONY is one of the best games I have ever played on my Amiga and yes that was thanks to the setting, graphics, music and the usual top-notch presentation seen in most Psygnosis games at the time and yes I find it rather amazing that neither Psygnosis or SONY […]

A Look At Tiny Little Slug For The Amiga

Tiny Little Slug is one of those games that I have been anxiously waiting for and that for a good reason, as not only was it a new Amiga game but a rather good looking platforming game in the style of Globdule and Steg The Slug. The game comes in a big brown box and […]

IRIDIUM - Creating Maps - 800% Speed

As we get closer to releasing "IRIDIUM" though you might like to see the map building process. While this map still needs double the amount of layers to create the 3d appearance it gives you an idea of how we have built each one.


Amiga MAST enhanced unidrive external drive teardown

Back in the Christmas of 1991 or 1992, my parents bought me an external floppy drive. It was $129, which was a lot of money back then. The equivalent price would be about $245 after inflation.

I probably found this drive in either AmigaWorld magazine or Computer Shopper, which iirc was a thin newspaper type printed on large format paper.

This external amiga-specific floppy drive with DB23 connectors had a few unique features. It had a two-digit track indicator for which track was being read or written. It also had a few switches in the back. The three switches controlled:

How to mount HPUX 10.20 VxFS logical volumes in a modern linux environment

This is a problem that I’ve wanted to tackle for quite some time. Since I’m using SCSI2SD and also messing around with a few different logic analyzers, I’ve got several HDD images that include both data files and operating system files. When they are sitting on my machine, they are just these huge masses of data, essentially HDD-sized chunks. Of 4GB, 16GB, 32GB and so on. Sometimes, I want to peer into them, or compare contents…..or literally any other manipulation beyond just coping/moving them around.

Just today, one for Pi4 is now out in beta format.  Here are some screenshots:
