A600: Fun AmigaSYS testing and some recent OS additions
After my latest video (thanks for the nice comments btw), I decided to try more stuff to my system.
First of all and just for FUN purposes I decided to convert AmigaSYS 4 AGA to ECS :P
I really think that AmigaSYS is a nice compilation which has it's follower although, I'm not of them.
Sorry folks, ClassicWB all teh way! So... WHO said that AmigaSYS can't run on ECS machines? :D
This is what my custom AmigaSYS 4 AGA for my ECS environment looks like (it is also upgraded to latest version and ofc OS3.9).
This is the custom BootPic that I created @ 640x512 resolution, which was remapped to the standard 8 colors MagicWB palette via ImageStudio and saved as IFF-ILBM format, that replaced the original AGA ones for A1200/4000.
...and this is the custom environment that works just fine under ECS. Wallpapers, titlebar, along with some changes on TinyMeter and MCP occured and as always system runs on a custom Kickstart 3.9 with all recent modules.
...and this is what the Workbench screen looks like with the new titlebar info :)
A lot nicer than the standard look (Workbench, Chip RAM, Fast RAM). You can also notice a nice custom icon for ToolsManager made for HippoPlayer hehe.
As always, I wanted to make the new options fully customizable so I can Enable/Disable them whenever I wanted, so I used the awesome Bloodwych menus and settings based on BMX (ButtonMenu).
Here you can see the custom mouse menu that leads to Settings ---> Components and from there to MCP and PicBoot settings. Pressing one of the buttons, gives a new Enable/Disable option like the other settings from Bloodwych :)
You can't imagine how much I'm enjoying my A600 with all these beefed optiond. Fun times for sure.
EDIT: Some days ago I thought of shooting a video about a fellow Amigan (Retrofan from EAB) to show him how MAS-Player can stream Internet Radio via AmigaAMP. As you can see from the follow video bellow it does that nicely :)
Stay tuned for more stuff soon \o/
