it wasn’t all that long ago now since I brought up a discussion on Facebook about a game Duplication machine that I had seen back in the early 80s in my local game shop, I knew I had seen it and all (only once though) but I had no idea about the name or if […]
ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!
Happy New Year Everyone :)
Gold Rush! Was released back in 1989 to much fanfare but like with several other good Sierra games at the time it simply didn’t get the recognition that it deserved thanks to a bunch of killer apps ( games ) released at the same time. So, it was a given that a remake would happen […]
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), […]
Daniel Stephens and myself are working on a new shooter for ECS Amiga's.
While it's early days yet we have started a design. Please visit this link to see the demo running
For my final blog post of 2019 I am taking a look at rebuilding my A1200 into the new Amiga 1200 case by A1200.net.
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!
