  1. I've been so close to buying a MiST for the past couple of months, but the VGA-only keeps scaring me away. I do have an Acer monitor that has VGA in (as well as DVI and HDMI) but I have no idea if it can support the output from the MiST. Naturally, the Amiga, ST, and C64 are best played in PAL 50Hz mode, but I've read that most VGA screens can only do a minimum of 56 Hz. Does this mean that at best, games would run ever so slightly too fast? Or, if my monitor can only manage 60 Hz, then I'd be stuck playing Amiga and ST in NTSC mode and the games would be totally too fast. I've seen the MiSTer board that has HDMI, but that isn't sold by anyone and I'm not sure if it has real joystick ports which is a big reason I'd like a MiST. Should I just sit out the FPGA scene until there's some kind of HDMI solution? I don't want to shell out the dough for a MiST and end up not being able to use it.
  2. Old version MT-32, working & complete (with extra power adapter - lower profile & reduced heat generation.) Quite a few vintage games take advantage of bugs in the old version OS and don't sound correct on later models. Games designed specifically for the MT-32 are available for the Atari ST, Amiga, PC, MSX, NEC PC 98x1, & Sharp X68000 computers. Unit is complete with original power adapter, smaller profile power adapter, & MIDI cable. Asking $175 + shipping & PP fees. SOLD Based on sold listings at the bay (a little below over all average.)
  3. Hi everyone, I just opened my box with my Amiga CD32 and SX1 in it here in Melbourne, Australia. It has been sitting in the box for 20 years. I've connected it up to a small TV via composite plugs (yellow video and red/white audio) and it works! I plugged the floppy drive into the SX1 and have got a few disc games working. (Ones that are compatible for A600/ 1200 AGA anyway. Some won't load). Some of them however require a keyboard. Could someone please recommend which keyboard to get for my CD32 SX1? If I recall correctly I can plug it into either the AUX port on the CD32 or the AT KBD port on the SX1. Any other ideas to maximise my enjoyment with my new entertainment would be greatly appreciated :-) Thanks Adam
  4. Deluxe Emplant card for Amiga with Zorro slots. Key MAC chips for running MAC software on a Zorro capable Amiga with 68020 or better CPU. All 5 RAM slots are populated and properly set for maximum RAM. New battery installed to maintain RAM contents. Has the e586DX expansion added. Do not have reliable floppies with software, but the Emplant software is freely available on the net. Fully supported by Fusion 3.2 (latest version.) Includes the MAC's VIA chips, MAC compatible serial & device ports, SCSI interface, and SIMM slot to read SIMM based MAC ROMs. Can also read chip based ROMs but the RAM chips will need to be temporarily removed to read those. Does not run the ROM from the board, but makes an image, so only need to remove the RAM to read the ROMs once. Asking $125 + shipping & PP fees. SOLD!

  7. For years now I've been hoping to see a series like this for various retro computing platforms (Atari 800, Apple II, TRS-80 Model III, Fujitsu FM7, C64, VIC-20, Atari ST, TI-99, SG-3000, X68000, Acorn, BBC Micro, Color Computer, PC-88, Spectrum, Adam, etc...). https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOT5j3ELi5BaSrb24fJEKvTqlRK4fg9wS In this case, it's for the Amiga. If others decide to make YouTube tutorial series' like this, please let me know. There are a bunch of platforms that I'd like to learn. And if someone can recommend a free video screen-capture utility that is Windows Vista compatible (and doesn't contain viruses), I may actually do more of these. Oh, and maybe an app that can add captions since YouTube is no longer offering annotation and captioning services as part of their site tools.
  8. Worn box, but joyboard in very good condition. Includes in box game (Mogul Maniac). Instruction manual and original survey form included. No wear on joyboard or game.[/size] eBay Auction -- Item Number: 252181467572
  9. Hello, So I was thinking about getting an Amiga or ST and I'm trying to decide which one to get. I live in the US and there's a game I want to play that was released for both systems called "Fire & Ice", but it only came out in Europe. Comparing the Amiga and ST, which one is the most import friendly and which model would be the best to get, so I can play PAL games like "Fire & Ice" in the states? Thanks in advance.
  10. Just a little bit of fun on the Amiga today. https://youtu.be/mIL-lzCZmsE Part of my task to my piserve modem of all platforms.. Mike
  11. Definitely my bad this time. Ugh. Here's a great example why it's not a good idea to do hardware changes when you're in a rush. You know, by lifting the cage that houses the power supply and bays without first disconnecting the ribbon cable from the motherboard. In the process I accidentally broke one of the pins off of the floppy drive connector on an Amiga 2000 motherboard. The pin is securely stuck in the end of the ribbon cable's connector. Any advice on the best way to fix/replace the motherboard's connector? I'm guessing that the cable itself is kaput, since I don't see how I can get the actual pin out of it. Another question: It's been awhile, but I was pretty sure that PC and Amiga disk drive ribbon cables were the same. Is that correct? Thanks!
  12. Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 5, at the Grand Prairie Municipal Airport from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. The facilty is open on Monday, July 4, but since that is a holiday, I figured that Tuesday would be a better day. Contact DoctorClu on Atariage for more details. See you there!
  13. I have an interesting joystick from Spain: Telemach 200. I'm looking to trade for other rare joysticks. The joystick has arcade components, Industria Lorenzo stick. It has a 9 pin connector. I use it on 2600. There is a switch on the back for other systems, (Amiga?). There are 4 suction cups on the bottom. I'm most interested in homebrew joysticks. But also various rare or quality that I don't already have. I mainly play 2600. Also Vectrex. I can use db15 gameport analog joysticks on Atari with an adapter that I have, which I like and which is another trade option. Possibly arcade or industrial joystick components. Old Pong console modded to work as VCS Paddle controllers!!!! ... Atari Game Brain, H.E.R.O., Montezuma's Revenge... VecMulti for Vectrex..
  14. A lot of stuff: Tandy 600 AC adapter CD32 with original controller and mouse adapter CD32 competition pro control pad cocolino PS/2 to Amiga mouse adapter Some MAC software. Shooter pack includes: SIN gold HeXen II Heretic II

    Here's a photo of my Amiga A1200, the final Amiga microcomputer from Commodore after the A500 and A600 (of course, there were also desktop Amiga computers with more expansion capabilities, but I like the micros) which came out in 1992. It's running Workbench 3.1 which is installed on an 8GB SanDisk Compact Flash card in an IDE-CF adapter, and I have a mild expansion in the form of a DKB Cobra accelerator with a 28Mhz 68030 and 64MB RAM.
  17. It's taken me a lot longer than I first expected to try and answer this. I know at the time that I believed a gap was left in the Home Computing market without the Amiga's /ST's etc and the PC was a clunky replacement at best. I wanted something that was fun to use that appealed to game players/coders/ content creators and so did a lot of others. Looking back problems were many: 1. Funding - the balance between running a computer business/part-time lecturing and funding a start-up was too much to achieve. Investment was next to impossible to find and what was particularly frustrating was the lack of believe many of the funding gatekeepers had (you'll never compete against Microsoft etc) 2. The Phoenix Consortium - Nice idea but too many hobbyists and not enough really committed developers - Next to impossible to tell the difference. Credibility was a problem - at the time QNX was supposed to be on board yet QNX UK had heard nothing about the consortium which didn’t help credibility 3. Focus - too much time spent discussing and negotiating with the community rather than just getting the prototype complete 4. Developers - Applications, Games etc - not enough done to work with Developers on what they wanted and needed I'm sure there were lots of other problems and I'd be interested in comments from anyone who was around the Amiga Market at the time (or part of the phoenix consortium) Barnie
  18. It's been sometime since a previous start-up Company I owned had been involved with something called the phoenix platform consortium - the idea behind the consortium was to bring together users, developers, Amiga Companies and investors to create the next generation of computing to replace the void that was been created by the Curse of the Amiga . I always see the Amiga as been the successor to the Atari 8-bit's and in some repects the Amiga 500's and Atari ST's were the game consoles of that time i.e 1 floppy disk to load and play was very similar to inserting a cartridge and turning on. I would say that a large percentage of owners of these systems only had them to play games. Over the next few ramblings from me I want to look at what went wrong with our attempts at creating a new system, why I don't think computing particular for fun with games doesnt have to be windows and whether its too late to have a new system in the market (I remember reading an interview with Nolan Bushnell sometime ago that at some point games consoles will be open source - with the developments in open hardware and "hobbyists" creating new systems that time may be arriving soon) As to this blogs name? its taken from an article by John Chandler sometime ago about the RealityStation : This is Reality Control the system ideas2reality were developing at the time.

  19. Games I've added to my collection over the last couple months. Many great old PC & Windows games as well as Xbox, PS2, Neo Geo Pocket Color, PSP, Amiga, C64 and much more! Anybody else collect big box PC games?
  20. http://www.blitter.com/~nebulous/Retro01.html People are welcome to use these photos. Part of the reason I posted these is to increase the amount of clean images of classic hardware so that the current generation can get an idea of what this stuff really looks like.
  21. Former Atari and Amiga employees reminisce about Jay Miner. An interview with Jay follows. This is an edit of the raw footage posted previously.
  22. I see we're down to the last 12 hours for this one. Looks like it's all stretch goals now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1462758959/commodore-the-final-years-book?ref=a5znrq
  23. We all know about OctaMED's 8-channels and how StarDust takes two channels and mux's them together to make a total of 6-note polyphony. However, here's a novel way to get a 5th audio channel out of the Amiga by making good use of the (until now) useless composite port: http://jmp.no/blog/a-5th-audio-channel-on-the-amiga Additionally, I was doing some reading on the Amiga's audio circuitry and it's pretty interesting. Here's some of the neat things you do: - Make your own waveforms by drawing them using Audiomaster or some other tracker app. - Feed raw data into Paula to generate crazy waveforms. - Play two waveforms over one another to sum them to a single channel. - Modulate one audio channel with another. - Use DMA to handle the audio or switch it off and let the CPU take direct control. - Append one waveform with another in code. - Overlay all of the channels to create a 14-bit stereo sample playback unit. - Do AM and FM synthesis with an app like OctaMED. - Make use of Paula's four included state machines (and send data to them via the CPU or Agnus). - Increase the sample rate to 57.7 KHz if you have a SuperDenise chip. It's too bad they didn't up this same design to 16-bit for the release of the AGA machines. As 8-bit audio chips go though, the sound quality is pretty awesome. A good example of this is the real-time monitoring mode of the DSS8+ cartridge on a machine with a 68030. It almost sounds like a 16-bit stereo sampler.
  24. The following link contains high-resolution Amiga photographs. These are free for anyone to use (even for commercial projects, books, magazines, etc...) and are an attempt to supply publications with clean images of Amiga computers. The Amiga 500 in these images is new and was sealed in climate-controlled storage for almost 30 years. It was unboxed in order to take the following photos. A link to a 180 MB Zip file containing print resolution photos is also featured on this page. https://www.blitter.com/~nebulous/AmigaPhotos.html
