While I recently posted about a custom case cover for the A600, I saw this one today that replaces the wedge case. While I personally liked the Commodore wedge design, I think this one looked really good. Inside you can see the CFIDE adapter, KS 3.1 ROM and Furia 020 accelerator. Outside, it looks like wireless mouse and keyboard. Pretty nice!
Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19 caused by the new Corona virus, Revision 2020 demo party to be held in Saarbrücken, Germany, from April 10th to 13th 2020, is cancelled - but there's a backup plan.
I spotted this one on Facebook. Someone used a 3d Printer to make his own custom cover case for his A600, including a space for the PCMCIA card if one is there. I don’t think he’s offering to make them for others but I thought it was very nice and deserved to be spotlighted to show what Amiga lovers can and will do for their machines.
This weekend I noticed a post on Facebook in the “Commodore Amiga” group.
It was simply Amigapassion making a note that if you went to www.amigapassion.com you was redirected to Amigakit webshop.
Now this is simply put very not ok. As most of you might know. amigapassion (on real site: https://www.amigapassion.co.uk/ ) offers repairs of Amigacomputers. so does amigakit.
Dude, that's a lot of games. The game development scene is bustling with activity. Next round of Amiga entertainment from 2019/2020. There's no time to waste, here we go.
Looks like a new’ish browser (probably using OWB framework) with a much more recent WebKit is coming. It’s detailed in this thread –> here<–
Probably still some weeks or so away from an alpha version and the author is admitting that webinspector and possibly YouTube media playback may not be supported. That makes me sad, as YouTube support is important to me in a modern browser.
Still more 2019 games! And some 2020 gaming news, too! Yes, we're transitioning into 2020, but in many cases development dates back to 2019, or even further. Either way, more awesomeness here.
R.E.R.O. - Amiga H.E.R.O. remake
"R.E.R.O. - Rocket driven Emergency Rescue Operation" is a remake of cave exploration and rescue game "H.E.R.O. - Helicopter Emergency Rescue Operation", originally released in 1984 for Atari 2600 and ported to many 8-bit platforms.
As you know I am busy with Iridium at this time, also slowly working away on Boss Machine and Reshoot Proxima III for our Amiga Platform. The latest news for Iridium is here.
A quick teaser image below.
Another update to the AMIGA alive Web Directory - 63 new links added, now 473 websites listed!
As always, if you're looking for something specific, make sure to check the "Misc / Mixed" section, as some websites cover multiple different subjects, e.g. software authors may have created very different applications.
Have fun browsing the...
We're about to catch up with 2019's game developments for the Amiga, with another set of exciting new productions.
Announced around June 2019, "Jump!" is a conversion of AtariXE/XL game "Yoomp!". You control a ball bouncing through a tunnel made of panels, some of which can speed up your ball, or have other effects on the gameplay. It's a tactical arcade action game, similar to "Trailblazer" on the C64.
