Promoting other great Amigans :)
Another round of looking at 2019's Amiga game development scene.
In case you've missed it (like I did): On Dec. 16th a lot of technical details about the upcoming AmigaOS 3.2 have been published.
After many websites have reported about the announcements made by the developers, and a preview screenshot has been released, now we get a lot of detail information about bug fixes and new features of release 3.2.
The problem is corrosion…..
Corrosion appears to be happening either directly under or nearby the various sized (but typically 5″ long) plastic runners that line the bottom of the large PCB modules. These plastic runners protect the small surface mounted components on the bottom board from being scraped off when being inserted. Due to the proximity of the modules, with the install order being from BOTTOM to TOP, the front-panel connector edge of the module below it can scrape and accidentally yank off a small SMD part.
Pierre Le Chef Is Out To Lunch by Mindscape is one of those typical games that went under the radar for many, no not because it was a bad game and definitely because it wasn’t marketed either but for some odd reason a lot of people didn’t want Platformers at that time (especially on Amiga), […]

Such a busy life, I’ve been living lately: playing like I mean it (PS4, mostly), writing about games, writing about game coding, attending fairs across Europe like the wonderful Amiga34 in Neuss (Germany) or the incredible Lucca Comics&Games, reading novels, reading mangas, studying Japanese and so on … Despite the fact that most of my […]
I found this recently on Facebook: An adapter that lets a PC read and write to Amiga Floppy disks. This could come in handy!
From the posting:
I’ve been playing with my HP 16700A Logic Analyzer and looking at boot times.
Originally the HP 16700A came with an internal SCSI drive, which was still functioning after 15 or 16 years. This SCSI drive was a 4GB Medalist Pro like a ST34520N or similar. This drive was noisy and I wanted to replace it with something solid state and hopefully gain some speed.
