1942 & The Amiga Development Progression

1942 for the Amiga 500 has been in development for quite a while now and when I joined the project earlier this year then the base engine and a few levels were more or less finished albeit a bit crude. It didn’t take long before my (and other testers) bug reports (wasn’t all that bad, […]

Doscember Pentium 200 PC MS-DOS setup

 It was announced that the Adelaide Retro Computing Group meeting in December would be a DOS themed meeting called Doscember. A few years ago I setup a Pentium 200MMX as my ultimate MS-DOS machine for running demos on the PC from the peak period for this in the 1990's.

I decided to delve a little deeper and find out what else I could do with the setup to show at the meeting. I was surprised at what else you can run under MS-DOS!

The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe – Early 2022

Hi everyone, Back in 2018 I wrote a post about The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe being in production. Back then they estimated that it would be released in 2019. It is now December 2021 and the game has still not been released, but Crows Crows Crows revealed today, through a video on YouTube, that the […]

Amigas on the lake

Sitting at my old demo group’s 30th anniversary party (which I mentioned in this blog post), I had no inkling that we were in fact reviving a tradition. I’m happy to say that since that first reunion, we’ve been meeting on a fairly regular basis to compare notes, play with our machines and discuss all things Amiga. We’re now a mixed bunch consisting of retro hardware collectors, next-gen enthusiasts (yes, me) and occasional emulation users, but the meetings are always great fun!

Using BBS with my Amiga 3000 in 2021

No carrier, ATDT, ATZ, ZModem, XModem, Kermit, Door games, FidoNet, and SysOps. Ring a bell?

For those who never got to experience Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) back in the day, they were the pre-internet method for spreading software, chatting, playing online gaming, chatting on Forums, and a lot more too.
