Amiga 1200 for Gaming

Hi guys,

Recently we moved house, so we’ve got more space now. I’ve therefore started setting up a computer/games-room for the family to use. My old Amiga 1200 will now be primarily used as a games machine (also for viewing old-school demos) since I tend to use MorphOS for other stuff these days. Here is a picture of my Amiga 1200 getting used to its new role:

Linux stability fix: v1.0.1 (Hoverboard)

After releasing the first stable version I have received lots of feedback from folks around the world. Most of you guys were positive about the release, except my good old pal: Mike Blackburn.

Probably there are not too many E-UAE users are trying to run it on LinuxPPC and one of the reasons is probably: there is no binary distribution. Yet, there are a handful of crazy people... One of them is Mike.

Assist 2.0 Released

Assist 2.0 is now available to download from OS4Depot. This update sees significant changes to make browsing the A-Z faster, a fresh new look and much more.

New users can grab the latest version from OS4Depot, while existing users can update to this latest release via AmiUpdate.

Update to my blog entries on app stores

Okay, there were a few comments on both Amistore and IndieGo! Appstore blog entries that may clear up some issues I had at the time (I plan to revisit each when they are out of beta).

For AmiStore, I had an issue with being redirected to PayPal and my system defaulted to using NetSurf 3.2. This version of NetSurf 3.2 had limited javascript support and Paypal was complaining about it.

Two solutions were suggested:

Return to the Roots

Maybe you remember the 1993 game Settlers for the Amiga? It was a real time, slow paced build-and-conquer game, and a really good one. Then came Settlers II in 1996 and it was even better, but wasn’t made for the Amiga. I used to play it a lot on my PC.
