It wasn't a hoax: IBrowse lives! In April 2017 we reported news about iBrowse being (still?) actively developed (again?), and a few days ago the iBrowse page was updated with more information. Additionally, Voyager web browser has resurfaced with a GPL source code release!
The changes in iBrowse 2.5 are too numerous too list, but here are some highlights:
Hermes is actually a Dreamcast game with AmigaOS4, MacOS-X and Windows versions on the same CD. The Dreamcast version can be seen as the main dish here i guess, the rest as side dishes as it is mostly seen as a Dreamcast only title as that is the only format the game autoboots on. The last attempt of this that i know of was Leona’s Adventure but as you may know this project failed to...
Just thought that some Amigans might like to see this one person’s efforts with the TF530 accelerator I’ve been talking about recently:
Lumberjack Reloaded for the Amiga came out a couple months ago now, the reason for this late article is that i wanted to try the game a bit more on various hardware here. There’s two versions available, 1 CD version (CD32/CDTV) and 1 Floppy version and the one i got is the CD version which works on both the CDTV and the CD32. Every version of Lumberjack Reloaded comes in a white DVD case and...
Seeing as my first ever games console was the Atari 2600, it should come as no surprise that I have a certain fondness for all things Atari. I still own […]

Website "Popular mechanics" has published a nice article that kind of gives a rundown of the entire history of Amiga computing, and an insight into the enthusiasm that still keeps the platform alive.
I had the chance today to download a new game which has appeared on OS4 Depot, namely a SDL2 optimised version of the Classic Amiga game Super Methane Bros for […]
I’ve posted about this fellow before, but on YouTube, a user named Terrible Fire has been designing open sourced amiga Accelerator and vlogginb about it. It was in late 2016, that he put up his first video about an Amiga 500 68020 accelerator (TF520). You can see that video here:
Century III Mall is an ailing enclosed shopping mall located in the southern Pittsburgh suburb of West Mifflin, Pennsylvania.
I lived nearby this mall, and this was definitely “our” mall for kids like me growing up in the 1980s and 1990s. I visited the mall in July 2017 because I had heard it wasn’t doing so well, and here are my thoughts and observations.
When researching for our previous article "Best of the best - Amiga games you must have seen", a lot more games came to mind that excel in one or the other way, and need to be mentioned but didn't make it into the article. So here's part 2! Again, we're putting our focus more on technical or stylistic achievement, and less on mass appeal or nostalgia.
Have fun with our...
So, back in the day, if you wanted to read or write Amiga floppy disks, you needed a dedicated Amiga floppy drive. The first workaround was to get a catweasel card from Individual Computers, which would allow a PC standard floppy drive to read and write Amiga floppies.
Then, there was the Kyroflux forensic floppy controller was supposedly able to read Amiga floppies.
