Really lovely demo--looks like a marvelous technical achievement and the messaging is on point. Congrats!

I think there still must be a game somewhere in that engine... even if you haven't found it yet. Give yourself a well-deserved break and maybe the idea will come to you when you least expect it.

Dont use a mac lol. Joking aside have you downloaded all 5 files to the same location. Once all 5files are downloaded then you just need to unzip them by selecting the first file. The unzipped file should be a .img file this can then be written to a sd/usb stick using somethng like the below:

Hope this helps.

Thanks, lionstorm!
You'll definitely enjoy it more on your machine, as the visuals of the demo are unsuitable for videos.

Yes, Continuing with my issues I am also unable to UnZip the files I download. I got WinZip for Mac
no luck, crashed the program (repeatedly).  Unarchiver says "the content can not be extracted with
Unarchiver. Any advise would be helpful.

Amiga Hardware Issues and discussion / Re: Indivision AGA MK2 issues
« Last post by sturulez on July 12, 2020, 12:26:33 AM »
Okay so I have managed to obtain a configuration created by some called "Hans"

The Workbench display is at 1280 x 1024

The display for playing games is at 640 x 512 60Hz

I have replaced my VGA cable with a HDMI going into my monitor then into a HDMI to DVI adapter. The workbench display has vastly improved. I have changed the output setting in the Indivision preferences to DVI

The issue I am now facing is that when I load a game from a floppy or WHDLoad I get the sound to the game but no picture. Just a black screen and a message that pops up saying "No Signal Detected"

Is there an option somewhere I have missed?

Eventually I used the engine to make a demo. It got released at the Solskogen 2020 demoparty about 1 hour ago. Feel free to watch/download it from https://www.retream.com/THE_CURE (running it on a real Amiga is mandatory to really appreciate it, as a video, due to technical reasons, just doesn't cut it) ;)
The demo comes with a README that explains all the details, including why I dropped the idea of a making game and went for a demo, instead.

Ah, so the plungers have a conductive coating on them. That would explain why this one didn't work, it's worn off.

I checked some A500 keyboard repair videos before looking inside the keyboard, and only warning I got was not to use IPA on the membrane. Luckily I only rubbed a bit on the tip/edge of each side (the parts that touch the membrane), not the whole thing of the broken plunger, which was already not working anyway.

Still wonder why that one and not any of the others is so worn out, and the color is faded, while all the others are bright and nice and work.

So, need to get a new plunger then I guess (won't go through the trouble of recoating it myself), if I want the other key to work as well. But, ithat one is not that important anyway.

The guy I bought the Amiga from said everything were tested and working before it was shipped to me, even every key. So guess he forgot to check that key.



Edit: Ordered 3 new plastic bits with plungers on them from ebay. One for the broken key, one for F3 which works but have to press really hard, and one more in case I might need it in the future.

You have to be careful when cleaning the keyboard plungers. There's a thin layer of conductive coating on them that wears off very easily with anything stronger than water and a tiny amount of soap. You can easilt rub it off as well if you're to persistent.

Might be possible to fix if you add some kind of conductive layer to them again, but it has to be very thin or else it might touch the membrane at all times. Electrically conductive glue perhaps?
