Treated myself to a few #retrocomputer bits n pieces this week. Mostly some quality of life bits for the #amiga. I got a gotek drive, which came inside a metal Zydec external drive. the seller included the original 3.5" drive from the casing, which hopefully will replace my dying FDD. So to compliment this, i got a little boot selector switch as well so i can boot from the gotek or the internal drive. I also snagged a nice wee joystick. Its clear. And clear #retrogaming gear is always cooler.

Brilliant piece. Pete Cannon discusses with SoundOnSound the history of sampling in the jungle scene, and how samplers like the Akai S950 and S1100 have become synonymous with the genre.
He then outlines his favourite jungle production techniques, with tips and tricks on how to recreate classic synth chord stabs, and onto sequencing a drum and bass track using OctaMED tracker on an Amiga computer.

I am totally braindead from an extremely long week at work, so a small project - replace the original plastic isolation sheet on the back of the 4000T A/V board. This thing was crumbling, wanted to do this for a long time. #amiga
There is a certain pleasure in looking back at those not so great games. Not to mock them, but rather as a reminder of the realities back then. Retrospectives focus on the big hits of their days. But we also spent our time with stuff like #DasMagazin. I'd be really curious to know the story of its development. Were there people behind who really stood behind their work? Maybe, one day, we should try to research all this.
@ball It should definitely fit in reasonable memory sized #VAXen, say 16MB. The kernel can be stripped back and the ramdisk needs just enough to prompt for source and target devices, plus gzip - so much less than the current #sysinst based images. Something akin to the old #SunOS miniroot boot tape.
As it happens #NetBSD/ #amiga still has a miniroot install option - you partition with #AmigaOS native tools, write the miniroot to what will be the swap partition, then boot into it to complete.

This rolling demo was so good, it made my brother buy the #Amiga version of Wing Commander... and it was probably one of the games I played the most.

@TechConnectify In the early '90s, you could store ~500MB of data on a video tape, using a cheap "open source" adapter for #Amiga machine. (Technically the adapter is only required for reading, not storing.)

The 20230606 @amiga_vision #megaags exceeds 8gb so i have to buy a new card for my A1200 ide interface...
Do you have any compatibility tips like brand, speed etc.?
Wrote and explained a very simple example effect and made instructions for setting up the dev env.
Sadly it will have to wait until we finish cleaning up and backporting framework changes we made during Revision preparations, but it is also almost done~
After looking for years, I finally got an NTSC/USA version of Dune II "The Building of a Dynasty". Westwood Studios was an American developer based in Las Vegas. In 1992 they got bought out by Virgin, then eventually merged with EA in Los Angeles.
Anyway, stoked to get this box w/ legit artwork and floppy disks with actual stickers instead of just blue disks with white paint.
Lo-fi Workbench for the sake of my poor graphics-card-less #Amiga 1200
Took me a while to make it look pleasant
Still uses VisualPrefs, MUI, Reaction, MagicMenu, ClickToFront, AssignWedge, AmiDock, ToolsMenu and idk what else of course
Added a bunch of new sites to the #amiga directory https://boing.directory since yesterday.
I've recoded the whole thing to make it really easy to add stuff and have allowed for future functionality to allow sites with different languages to be flagged up.
It would also be completely easy to make a page for any platform or subject, so if anyone has any requests ;)

On the fridge door: Psygnosis and Rainbow Arts stickers, souvenirs from our visits to them.

Dopo aver corretto un po' la palette generica che ho provato tempo fa mi sono messo a lavorare sul campo di battaglia e sulla gestione delle animazioni: nel breve video si vedono le posizioni dell'eroina e dei suo eventuali alleati a sinistra, mentre a destra ci saranno i nemici, da 1 fino ad un massimo di cinque :D

Chopper Duel for Amiga has been released: https://izero79.itch.io/chopperduel
I've added a new bunch of #amiga sites to https://boing.directory
Let me know if you want me to add anything else
I've been fooling around with #Doom on the #MiyooMiniPlus recently... partly because it's cool that I can, but also because Doom is, somehow, still an amazing game. It feels, forgive the pun, eternal.
It's easy to forget just how seismic Doom felt in 93. It appeared from nowhere, when everyone was talking about #SNES or #Megadrive or #Amiga... and somehow made PCs a thing!
Feeling perfect out of the gate, it made other platforms chase that elusive beast - the worthy Doom-clone. Few came close.

Speaking of German hackers, one of my oldest friend from the #Amiga scene, Zeronine from Quadlite, sent me this epic photo tonight.
So much awesomeness from what will forever remain some the best times of my life.
Spotted a lot of familiar faces in there…
Okay so http://boing.directory was made as a joke
However it’s got a lot of hits today. So in all seriousness, if you run an #amiga related site or thing. Let me know and I’ll add it. (At some point)
Backing up #amiga floppies with GreaseWeazle and a regular PC floppy drive under MacOS. The idea is to backup my original boxed games on a raw flux level and possibly restore them to a new surface if the one in the original disk is damaged. #floppy #GreaseWeazle #RetroComputing
My next AMOS video for the Amiga drops tomorrow (Thursday) at 18:15 UK time on my YouTube channel. (See bio for link etc.)

I've spent another 30 mins or so fiddling with the css to make it look more #Amiga Workbench 1.3.
Lets say 2 hours.
MicroProse's flight sim, A.T.A.C was previewed for the #Amiga in various magazines back in 1992, but sadly only got a #DOS release in the end.
We take a look at the conversion in the hope that something could be found one day: https://gamesthatwerent.com/2023/06/a-t-a-c-advanced-tactical-air-command/
@AmigaBoing Yeah. Nebulous is crazy hard, but also delightfully clever.
I love that #Evercade is bringing games to cartridge that haven't been before (#arcade games), or at least haven't been on cartridge for a long time (in the case of #Amiga and #C64).

Anyone in Ireland (North or South) who can recap Amigas? I don't fancy sending my Amiga 1200 off to be recapped and have to wait months for a turnaround.
I mean, I could spend more time on it and make it better, but seriously there's loads of #amiga sites that have links to places on them. We don’t need another one.
I just made this to be petty
And I needed some procrastination from the real job.
But mainly the pettiness.
Almost every #Amiga game and demo ever made… in my pocket… 🤯
Amazing work @amiga_vision and Mazamars312!

@tomxcd I somehow managed to keep using an #Amiga until 2001 when I finally decided I should give Linux a spin. I started with #Slackware which I liked, but I figured I needed to be going the extra mile so in 2002 I switched to the newly-released #Gentoo which I still use to this day.

Demo footage ↓
Sometimes #demoscene is not about flashy colors and obscene amounts of beer. Sometimes it's spending your Sunday afternoon in an empty university's classroom, scribbling on a whiteboard about exec formats and memory management.
First #Amiga struggle session since Revision concluded, we've had postmortem of Electric Lifeforms, discussed the future of our framework and started setting up a roadmap to a next production :>
It means progress in my next demoscene tutorial blogpost, so stay tuned! 🐇
Getting to the end of RDZ development. I have a short list of (mostly simple) things to do in June leaving July for a lot of playtesting and balancing.
August will be a holiday.
September, something new.

Happy International #Amiga Day!
My first computer was an #Amiga 500+ btw, I learned to type my name before I could write it properly on that thing so I'll always have a soft spot for them =p
Pushing through my dyslexia as a child in the 90s in a school that was rated dogshit from Ofsted every year I was there was rough as fuck so it was nice to spin one of these things up when I got home haha
It's #Amiga day today apparently, so I'm boosting my 1200. Still really want that new wireless tank mouse thing to properly complete it one day :blobpeek: x
Many years ago, I rendered my first 3D picture on a computer. It was on an #amiga 500, running Real3D 1.4, on 1MB of RAM.
The image was something simple I threw together: a logo with some textures. To fit it into memory, I had it done at 16 colors grayscale, at 640 x 400.
It took my A500 one week of uninterrupted rendering to get it done. I used to wake up in the morning to see how much further each line had progressed.
I finally managed to find the picture in a floppy disk, after many years.
Anyone got any idea where to get an Amiga "Kick Start" floppy? #retrocomputing #amiga
I've started working on a new costume, scheduled to be debuted at Amiga38:
Zombie LeChuck from Monkey Island 2!
...But wait, there's more! This is not a solo project. My best friend has joined the fun and will cosplay Guybrush. In fact, we have several other Amiga cosplay duos planned already. How cool is that?!
In 1992 our Commodore Amiga platform game Hoi was released worldwide on two 3.5 inch diskettes, but as the US-based publisher didn't pay the royalties, we decided to release an AGA chipset remix for free in 1993.
Here's a full longplay video of the Hoi AGA Remix. We had lots of fun creating the game as three youngsters.

I have a new music release out today. It’s a batch of old skool rave tunes I did on my Commodore Amiga:
“A worthwhile waste of time.”
I've been a subscriber to Ahoy's YouTube channel forever, but this video lingered in my to-watch list.
wtf even is a “Four-Byte Burger”? But if you know me, the #Amiga was incredibly influential to my computering. I've used a tuned A500 until 1997 FFS.
I have no memory of the original art, but the process of reconstruction, the booting of Workbench 1.3 & 3.1… the DPaint cameo, the Commodore 1084…
This video is a piece of art on its own.
A simple process that has worked many times for me in salvaging failing floppies to become read/writable again.
