On December 9th we held the last Adelaide Retro Computing Group meeting for 2016, with a BBQ and a free for all retro theme! We got to see some great systems and a very interesting presentation by Alexis on his home built Retro computer!
Here’s a video of the Vampire 500 board on an Amiga 500, surfing the web with the latest Netsurf 3.6 by Arti (there is another Netsurf 3.6 by Chris, author of the OS4.x version of Netsurf)
It appears that Hyperion has made enough progress on OS4.1 for X5000 to make an announcement. See this –> link <—.
This appears to be just enough to get the OS working on the X5000. There is no mention of extended features, as there was also an announcement that a full update for all OS4.1FE users will be available by the end of the year. Let’s hope that happens.
Today I took a look at a recently released game for AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition on my AmigaOne X1000 called Project: Starfighter!
Not much progress on WinUAE on AROS the last months.. why?
I never got the harddrive tab working reliable. Adding a new harddrive with the gui always resulted in a TLSF memory allocation error and I had no idea, why. The pool was damaged somewhere..
So I searched and debugged for .. many hours. Too many, so I always stopped hunting for the bug after maybe 5 hours and gave up. And restarted weeks later. And restarted.. and the last start was finally successful :-).
Well next card in the series how to upgrade different 68040 cards to 68060, it is time for the Apollo 1240.
First, As Jens schönfeld ( Individual Computers ) owns the rights of the Apollo cards, I asked him for permissions especially when this requires a ROM change. he told me that I was allowed however only if I publish a diff..
But he also pointed out that he does not like the Apollo. This is no news but this is what he told me:
My apologies for the delay in blog posts but work has been very busy lately and I have had very little free time. This week though I took delivery of the Prisma Megamix music card (A-EON) and X-Surf 100 (Individual Computers) and was very keen to try out both on my Amiga 4000!

who lives a secluded life in his kingdom. This Morgul is the cause of
all the fears and nightmares of mankind. It is furthermore said, that
