Wendetta 2175 always comes up as a wildcard when I show my game collection to Amiga friends and it somewhat still baffles me that so few people actually managed to secure themselves a copy of the game. No, this ain’t one of those rare unknown games that are crap and never should have seen a […]
It's really nice to give a little back to all the people who I appreciate in the Amiga Community. I have a small patreon site and a few very generous people are helping my may Amiga dream come true.
Way back in about 1992, I finally had enough money (ok, well, enough credit) to finally expand my Commodore Amiga 500 to how I wanted it. I previously had an A501 memory expansion module and an external floppy drive that my parents had bought me for Christmas the year or two before. A major upgrade was a Microbotics VXL*30 accelerator card which included a 68030 at 25mhz, and whopping 2MB RAM which was just amazing for the time. I may make a post in the future about the specifics of that card.
While digging deep on a German forum that was discussing the Amiga OS 3.1.4.x release, there was a thread called “OS 3.2 Preview”. Attached was this image (Click to see a larger version):
People that look closely can see some hints of what is to come (not easy but there were several small things added that people found).
A few years ago, I posted about a newly designed zorro graphics card called the VA2000.
Well, it looks like a new card is in the works, this time with a dual core ARM-7 processor, which is supposedly for decoding video and audio. Check out the website here
I’ve been interested in the custom Amiga OS bundle/distro for Vampire users called Coffin OS for a while now. There haven’t been many reviews of it for non-vampire users and I thought I’d give it a go using WinUAE. This will be the first of a 2 part review, with initial setup and initial configuration. Part 2 will be more about the bundled software.
If I and Jeroen Tel got one thing in common then it has to be that every game has to have a good soundtrack and I guess this is why I ended up being such a fan of gaming in the 80s, the Commodore 64 SID chip has always made me smile and no, I […]
Recently I finally managed to secure my own Amiga 3000! I really wanted to get one of these for a long time now.
Shadow Of The Colossus is a rather hard game for me to write about as this is, well, this game is actually in my top 3 games of all time list and yes they have already released the game 3 times and every single time it blew me away in ways no other game has […]
This weekend I took a look at the Amiga 500 and Amiga 600 memory expansion cards and A1200 real time clock port expansion module, all kindly supplied to me for review by AmigaKit.
