RamseyConfig 1.5 released!

v1.5 Replaced A3000 bonus code test with Lisa test. In most cases,
hardware model detection should be more reliable than
software model detection.

Oh yeah, the support for the CPU in the X5000/40 is over as of May 2022 (over two months ago) even before it's on general release! Insane!

... and why can't AmigaKit bring themselves to bury the hatchet with Hyperion and continue to sell the X5000 with OEM AmigaOS license?

Here is a list of the presentations.  Note the Commodore presentations!

1. Ben Zotto  – Sphere 1: The First Modern Microcomputer
2. Bobby Livingston/Corey Cohen – Vintage Technology: Search, Identify, Authenticate
3. Berger Becky – DOOM 3DO: Or how I survived hell
4. Johan Grip – 128Neo
5. Byron Stout – Developing 8-bit Commodore programs using a modern IDE.

11. John Floren – Reproduction Depraz mouse

     Below is the description of the C= presentations:


1:00 pm – Developing 8-bit Commodore programs using a modern IDE – Byron Stout

While you can still program directly on the original hardware, it sure is nice to have the conveniences of a software development environment running on a modern PC. Let’s use CBM PRG Studio to write BASIC and ML programs for our favorite 8-bit Commodore machines.

5:00 pm – In Search Of … The original wooden PET – Leonard Tramiel

The twisted story of the long and, ultimately, fruitful search for the original Wooden Pet.


2:00 pm 128Neo (Virtual – live) – Johan Grip

Johan Grip will talk about the Commodore 128 and the story of how repairing the first computer he owned went a bit astray. Topics covered by the talk includes PCB reverse engineering, silicon reverse engineering, tools and techniques and other things learned during the process.

3:30 pm – Adventures in Emulation – Mike McGann

Do you enjoy using emulators to tinker around with computers of the past? Have you ever wondered what it would take to develop an emulator yourself? In this talk, Mike McGann will detail his adventures taken, from start to finish, in building a rudimentary Commodore 64 (6502) and Pac-Man (Z80) emulator. Topics will include memory layout, CPU instructions, text-based graphics, basic sound, and plenty of implementation bloopers. A demonstration and Q&A session will follow the talk. No quarters required.

Amiga Gaming / Re: Huenison updated
« Last post by saimo on July 31, 2022, 12:07:33 PM »
Lately work has been done in parallel on all the RETREAM games. It began with the objective of aligning the technically similar ones for PC so that they would handle data saving the same way, but it soon went out of control and brought uniformity and improvements to the installers, the documentation, the web pages and even to code and internal files - and, just as importantly, it brought new features as well!

Free download: https://www.retream.com/Huenison / https://retream.itch.io/huenison

* Added field dark columns: the background is darkened, in an alternate columns fashion, by 50% in the first set of levels, by 25% in the second set of levels, by 0% in the third set of levels and by 75% in the last level (given that the columns match the virtual columns bricks descend along, they make for a precious visual aid to aim at the bricks).
* Added 20 points bonus for when CRUSH brick lands on the ground.
* Added function to use the RESTORE bonus to joypad (it had been forgotten!).
* Added internal graphics screenshot function (assigned to [F1]; the visible graphics are now captured with [F2]).
* Changed string requester so that entering an empty string means also "abort"/"reject" (depending on the context).
* Considered also D-pad input for "press any key/button" requests.
* Worked on online hiscores: improved/updated information texts; added possibility to retry up to 10 times if sending fails (in particular, when the email address registration has just been done, this makes it much easier to send the hiscores immediately thereafter).
* Slightly changed level names.
* Simplified data files access code.
* Made a few little optimizations.
* Replaced version string with an AmigaOS-style one.
* Added to Windows installer code to import previous savedata and clean up leftovers.
* Added Windows portable version.
* Updated manual.

Amiga Software Issues and Discussion / ADF files in OS3.2
« Last post by bradhansen1 on July 30, 2022, 10:58:46 PM »
Hi all, a couple of questions about ADF files. 1.Is there a way to edit the
startup sequence to automatically mount ADF files from Workbench? 2. How come when I mount ADF files in OS3.2 they are "Write Protected?"
Appreciate any feed back.
Brad Hansen
