Denise V2.0 Amiga emulator

"Denise" is a new Amiga (and C64) emulator for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. And it's surprisingly good!

Development of "Denise" seems to date back to around 2017, when it started as a Commodore 64 emulator. In March 2023 author PiCiJi released version 2.0, which adds Amiga 500 and 1000 emulation. Running Fedora Linux, I gave it a quick try.

Perth Amiga group meeting May 2023

 I found out recently about the Perth Amiga User Group (you can find them on Facebook here), and decided to go to one of their meetings in late May 2023 and make a weekend getaway out of it!

However, I couldn't go there empty-handed, so I decided to work some more on my Amiga 600 build, as it is the smallest Amiga and therefore the easiest to bring in my luggage on the 3 hour flight to Perth.

PIXEL Moon Tutorial - Amiga - Brilliance II

PIXEL Moon Tutorial

If you want to learn how to draw Pixel art, one way is to copy another design. In this tutorial after an Amigan requested some help on an Amiga Facebook site, I decided to quickly create this tutorial to help on how to approach creating some Pixel Art. 

A more detailed posting accompanies this video on my Patreon Blog (free) as well as the source files.

Long time no see :P

 Hey my friends...

Took me quite a few years to return to what I loved most, but the past weird years, the community dragged me back and since October of 2022 I'm back on track!

I have many things I wanna share from the last 6+ months but I hope in the next days/weeks to start writing and tinkering again with my blog.

So thanks all for sticking all this time, and stay tuned for more...
