AmigaOS4.1 Games released and holiday

Today I thought some quick updates on some new AmigaOS4.1 game releases - Quake 2 High Definition Edition from HunoPPC on AmigaOS4.1 with Warp3D, The Secrets of Middle City Demo Version, and more.

First, a look at a upgraded Quake2 High Definition release from HunoPPC for AmigaOS4.1, which was quietly released recently.

It definitely improves the look of Quake 2 on AmigaOS4.1 with higher HD resolutions, but of course you need to have Warp3D working on your system.


The Listtree class is .. not my friend ;-). But somehow with a lot of trial and error, I managed to get it working:

Replace the A2000 PSU With an ATX

I was sent an Amiga 2000.  The powersupply on it died.

So how to fix this?  well. you can put in an modern ATX Powersupply. So I did, and this is a short writeup of how to do it.


First of all, as most (all?) modern ATX PSUs do not contain the -5V signal, you will have problems using some ISA cards if you use a bridgeboard.  but as this is not a very common usage, this will not be a big problem.

So, first, remove your old PSU and open it.

IMPORTANT! do NOT touch the big capacitors on the A2000 PSU or the ATX one.

A new “classic”, MorphOS and the next NextGen from A-Eon

So, I haven’t posted much lately due to being busy but also not seeing much that I wanted to comment upon.

First off, the MorphOS team has already uploaded a new build (v3.9) less than 2 months after 3.8. I like this type of release schedule! While v3.8 added support for the SAM460 boards, among other things, v3.9 is mostly a bug-fix update. Always free to try, and high quality. There isn’t much not to like with MorphOS!
