I'd say this thread has gotten silly, but that would pre-suppose that it started out inteligently.

Let's just port Doom3 to OS4 and run it on our Intellivision's A1 emulator and call it good.

nope, running the game properly would just running the game without crashes

thats just running the game on max settings

Well it has drifter off topic a bit :-)

I'm just trying to get across that people buy consoles to play games and PC's for internety/e-maily/work stuff.  Horses for courses ...

PC's make bad gaming rigs (due to cost).

Plus the other blokey DOESN'T have the full spec machine to play Doom3 no matter how much he says he does :-)

Don't be silly!  An elegant OS does not counter the fact that modern PC's and the G5 Macs have HUGE memory bandwidth ... the AmigaOne is running PC133 SDRAM!  In single channel!  It hasn't a hope in hell of being able to shove the amount of data around that Doom3 requires.

it plays doom 3 fine

just because its not in max settings, doiesnt mean it doesnt run without a hitch

i get to play the game, and i'm assuming you can work this out.

min specs for doom 3:

1.5Ghz P4 chip or AMD Athlon 1500
384Mb of RAM
2Gb of hard drive space.
An nVidia GeForce 3 or ATI 8500 graphics card

i have above those specs , and therefore i can run doom 3

who cares about max graphics, as you yourself pointed out!!!

Well,

Since im at a young age, I can say that most of the games new do not interest me at all.

Ever since the Dreamcast.....Well, games have been repeated over and over. What I miss most is the gameplay!
I like how you can do alot in a game... I can careless for graphics now. I dislike games today because they have too much graphics, but not enough gameplace.

I dont care for Unreal Tournament 2003 or 2004. Ummm.... Unreal Tournament has such awsome musics, graphics, and even gameplay. Something about that game sets the First Person Shooter needs.

Racing games.... Soo much out there. Who wants to play the same boring upgrade cars, race...race...and more race???
Sorry, but I think ill go to the arcades and bust out Daytona USA and race and get it over with.  :-)



Im not being bitter about all the games being produced. Dont get me wrong, there can be some good games, but then there are too many of the same kind...

The next game im hyped up about is Worlds of Warcraft...

Final Fantasy 11 is a complete joke....hehehehe..


-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-


All In all, this post is not meant to be taken personally.  Just given you a point of view of how someone like me sees the console gaming industry...  :-)

Mine!  :-D

You could substitute "Amiga" for Dreamcast for a lot of folks.  Or SNES, or NES, or Atari, etc...

Just wait a few years, you'll start hearing "Games have not been original since the days of the Xbox and PS2"

My bro reckons he got his chipped XBox playing 1000s of Amiga games on a single CD. I'm overseas at the moment so I can't tell you how good the quality is.

You buy a PC for gaming only if you intend to keep it cutting edge. Only on a PC can you play games at an impossibly detailed res, with an impossibly vast pallette, at an impossibly fast frame rate. If you can't do that, then why bother. It doesn't make your PC useless if you can't, but don't cry when Game X makes you have to upgrade for the same experience over and over again. Its what drives home PC sales afterall.

I'm sick of the upgrade cycle, and perhaps that is why I would consider an Amiga, because God knows there'll hardly be any hardware worth upgrading to any time soon, like in the good'ol days. You can do more with less sometimes as most Amigans know.

I think we've gone off topic again....anyway....
How hard would it be to get an GameCube emulator running on an Amiga One or PegasOS bearing in mind some of the hardware similarities. It would beat the pants of FPSE if it was possible.

Might not even be possible, though the CPU is a PowerPC it is connected to bus at a higher speed than what the AmigaOne has, the memory is higher bandwidth as well .. don't think the AmigaOne has enough grunt to do it ... Pegasos might be able to pull off the trick as it's got the better memory system, but even then there is a lot to emulate.  Then you just need to figure out how to read the 3" disks ...

Look I am not a Linux advocate, but some guys are already working on cube Linux.

UAE the $100 A1, not really but $100 for UAE perf isn't bad...

Of course CubeLinux is still just a toy in the works and their are drive/media issues with the Cube. (Nintendo was damned clever with their protection). Perhaps a nifty, multimedia node???

For those interested...

it cant be that had to copy gc discs

i've heard that someone has written a program for gamecube, so that it will read from its own network adaptor
then you can stream games images off you're hard drive onto the cube, and it thinks its reading them from cd


apparently this was developed for testing homebrew games, but suddenly appeard on the pirate scene as a way of pirating  games - i've also heard that you can change the the cube, by getting a bigger box, and it'll read dvd's

Hands up who has a machine capable of running Doom3 PROPERLY!

Define properly.

Running it here on a P4 2.6Ghz 1GB ram, Parhelia 128Mb. At a res of 1024*768, ultra quality, (500Mb worth of textures) only "shadows" and AA are turned of. Works great here, 20 FPS when there are (several) monsters around.

/edit

Search some gaming forums on how to get DoomIII running.

That's enough offtopic  ;-)

It's not that hard to copy GC games, but it's impossible to play copied DVDs.
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(
