Amiga Marketplace / WTB: Working CIA chip for Amiga 500
« Last post by Huxley_D on September 16, 2019, 02:51:04 PM »
The "Even" CIA chip in my beloved Amiga 500 recently died (probably a casualty of a failing power supply, which has since been replaced by a modern, more-reliable unit). As best I can tell from scouring various forum posts, I cannot use a CIA chip from a C64 (right?), which means I need an Amiga-specific replacement. If anyone has one to sell (preferably in the US to speed postage - I'm hoping to get my A500 working in time for a local retro-computing event in ~9 days) please let me know and we can hopefully work something out ASAP!

Thanks,

Huxley

Road Show is 100% the way to go - faster, better, and still supported by the author. It is reasonably priced and works great. No GUI, but once you spend five minutes setting it up, you don't have to mess with it again.

Works for some setup.
Will not work for me with my Prometheus whatever i do.

It's working!

 Fail pin was pulled low by power supply PG brown/ gray cable, so Gary would not reset . In Skynet power supply , IC7 I suspect is bad . I got impatient, and just cut the wire and ran to five volts.

 Diagrom checksum test okay, CPU and chip ram is seen .

 Hangs on fast ram check . But, that's progress .

I am trying to find a way to attend this year, and hopefully exhibit some goodies related to the Amiga and my 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast channel. I should know for sure by the end of this week.

We still have several weeks to go! Please submit your original Amiga Artwork to me for a chance to win a copy of Personal Paint 7.3C! Join in the fun!
Here are all the details:

Turn on those Amiga's and launch DeluxePaint! It's time for the First Annual Amiga Art Contest! I have joined up with Pixel Vixen and Amiga on the Lake to host a fun art contest using our Amiga's as the paint brush.

The rules are simple:

Use an Amiga to create the artwork. A real one or virtual one is just fine.
Submit your artwork to one, two or all three categories below
Have fun and tell your friends about the contest!

The three categories are as follows:

1. Hand Drawn Artwork - Anything you create yourself in a paint package would meet this criteria. Anime, modern art, cartoons - if you can draw it, submit it!

2. Digital Photography. Get those pictures into the Amiga! Digi-View, DCTV, load a .JPG image from your digital camera into AdPro - however you bring your digital images into the Amiga is OK by us. But then show us your creative side, don't just submit a picture, make it something beautiful and creative with the power of the Amiga!

3. Ray Tracing - Amiga was King of the Hill with Ray tracing for years. Dust off that old copy of Turbo Silver and show us what you can create!

Any Amiga format is fine, from 2 color, to HAM6 and HAM8 all the way up to 24 bit from an RTG card! As long as your Amiga created it, you can submit it.

Please Email your artwork to me - douglas@dctechaz.com - If you would rather upload it to a dropbox link that can be provided. .IFF format is great, but any format you create should be OK. Please include the Hardware and Software you used in your creation, and include a description of how you did it if you want.

The winner in each category (judged by Vicky and myself) will win a brand-new copy of Personal Paint 7.3C donated by Amiga on the Lake! The contest will go all throughout September and we will announce the winners in October.

Of course I will do an entire show showing off all of the artwork.
Questions? Just reach out to me on Twitter @10marc1 or email me douglas@dctechaz.com

Have fun!

Amiga OS -- Application questions and support / Re: The Os 3.1.4 Thread
« Last post by my_pc_is_amiga on September 15, 2019, 12:34:27 AM »
Any comment on an aRIN sequence where aRIN sends a reset  plus init sequence.  As it is now, it is possible that the printer could have some configuration set that does not get set back to the original prefs by init alone.  Init only sets mostly prefs but if user changes something outside of prefs then that printer code does not go back to default with aRIN alone

Did this make it into the bug tracker?
No, simply on the basis that it is fixed already. (-:
