I started writing this blog while travelling back to New Zealand. It's been a busy and productive couple of weeks but it will be good to get back home to the summer down under. Actually the weather in Northern Europe was quite good until the Arctic blast which hit just as I was leaving the UK. I arrived back in New Zealand to sunshine, a water shortage and hosepipe ban.
Visiting the Magic Kingdom
Brussels, March 31, 2013
Easter seems like an appropriate time to provide a short update on the development status of a few key components of the upcoming AmigaOS 4.2.
SDL can force a 32bit mode, so on a 24bit screen we do a:
SDL_SetVideoMode (current_width, current_height, 32, uiSDLVidModFlags);
And with this magic, PUAE also works in my 24-bit AROS/linux hosted environment :)!
Debugging PUAE really sucked, as everything seemed to be working perfect, just the window stayed black..
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
Today I wanted to take a look at an interesting game called The Legend of Edgar for AmigaOS4 on the X1000.
Today DJ Nick released some new HD Wallpaper backgrounds for AmigaOS4.
Given it has been a while since I have changed my workbench background, it was a good opportunity
to do so today!
I have included some workbench screen grabs using two of the new backgrounds on my X1000 (click to expand):
So how close are we?
Hey guys, long time no see :)
I've been tinkering a lot my A600's environment all this time plus making some efforts for my GREX 4000 but that will come in a different article in the following weeks.
So... hardware-wise I ordered an full ceramic MC68030@50MHz CPU from Amibay having the latest mask in order to replace my ACA's plastic MC68030@33MHz.
Not a big deal but I had to try :)
I removed the old CPU, putted the new one and this is how it looked without the heatsink on.
