The love for the Commodore Amiga is far from uncommon in today’s gaming scene although most of it goes into small references and nothing like the stuff you can spot inside the first minute of SUPERHOT VR. The amount of Amiga’s spotted within a few minutes in this game is nothing short of amazing!. An Amiga 1200 spotted on the desk, tucked in between an A3000(?) and an odd looking...
I’m planning on using the Yamaha YM2612 FM synthesizer chip that has been used in both keyboard synthesizers, but also in the Sega Genesis consoles. The purpose is to add audio capability to my DIY Tablet computer. If you’ve read my other posts, you’ll know that my computer uses the Motorola 68000 processor, so I looked to other 68K machines for inspiration. What did other hardware designers in the 1980s and 1990s choose to use for adding audio to their computers?
Dreams seem to start becoming reality at Phase 5...
After months of rumours and speculation, and some pictures and announcements by Phase 5 digital products, it looks as if they're close to delivery: Phase 5 has posted a pre-order price list of their upcoming products on their facebook page!
Pretty much all their well-known products are there - in updated versions! The Cyberstorm PPC becomes the Cyberstorm PPC 2, the Blizzard 1230 is now at version five ("V"), the G-Rex PCI daughterboard is updated to G-Rex 2, etc.
"AMIGA alive 03 - Juggler (1986) and BoingBall (1984)" is out! This time with a little history lesson: the legendary Juggler and BoingBall demos, shown in the early days of the Amiga, and responsible for stunning the audience. We hope you enjoy it, and as always comments are welcome!
Just stumbled across this video on YouTube of an Amithlon user running the MUIMapparium program on his machine.
I’ve been meaning to look into this program for a while now. Nice to see it working on Amithlon (one of my favorite flavors of Amiga).
Someone on the Amikit X forums has written a forum thread on how to make the AmiKit X system function as a front-end for Windows, running windows programs through rabbithole as well as making the Windows apps have an amiga-look.
Doing this effectively can make your machine look like a very high-end, modern Amiga OS with all the latest app needs being filled in with Windows apps when needed.

TerribleFire, known for open-source Amiga accelerator designs on YouTube, has added the CD32 as one of the devices he is now making cards for.
This one appears to be a RAM and IDE controller card. As his A500 accelerators have evolved over time, I would expect this one to as well.
Check it out here:
So, I’ve never had an A1000, although I hope to one day. However, unless you are using an ACA500 or another hardware mod, you’ll find booting an a1000 is a two-step process: a Kickstart floppy and a workbench floppy.
Someone recently rediscovered a software application that creates a single-disk for booting and is still commerically available. Read about his discovery –> here <–
