PCMCIA angle connector and SD to CF adaptor Amiga update
Posted by Neil79 - 02 January 2017 16:03
Neil79's Avatar 

Something different for today's update although it still revolves around the Amiga, is two important updates regarding specific hardware and drivers that makes life just that little bit easier for the Amiga community. The first one is Grzegorz Kraszewski's PCMCIA angle connector, or KA37 for short. Which is a 90 degree angle connector that makes it easier for mounting or connecting PCMCIA cards in Amiga towers. Developed through 5 PCB revisions and over 4 months, the developer has said it fits in tower designs, where there is no space between the case bottom and the Amiga mainboard and is both solid and durable.

New FPS game in 2017 "CD32 X-men: Mind Games" released!
Posted by nittamituaki - 01 January 2017 13:15
nittamituaki's Avatar 

Happy new year, EAB members (and other retro gamers who see this thread later days)!
Today I released a brand new FPS game for Amiga.
Maybe it was the first one released in 2017 ? (LOL)

This game is "unofficial port" (as fan-game) of legendary unreleased 32X title,
"X-men: Mind Games" which release was canceled in 1996.
Now its dumped assets were reborn as totally new FPS game by Gloom3 engine.
(Exactly it was impossible to "rip" from original 32X rom file
because each resolution was totally different from Gloom3's one.
"eye to hand copy" and "totally edited" techniques were used.
The project starts in May 2015. That's why I took sooo long time.)

Anyway I won't upload the game at aminet since this game is sort of "derivative work", so please download from my web site.

Details,Screenshots and Download: (Read it first!)

Open Source A500 accelerator cooking nicely
Posted by Pat the Cat - 31 December 2016 01:11
Pat the Cat's Avatar  It's called the TerribleFire, and that's how the poster appears on twitter and youtube.

What makes these (020 and 030) boards a little different is - open source.

You can download the board designs and get them made up by a third party.

Then either add the chips yourself or pay somebody else to do that.

It's not a Vampire but still pretty good that new boards are being developed. This one on a shoe string budget in Glasgow, Scotland, by Stephen Leary.
