Frontier Elite II, and that will also make use of the FPU!
Even on a 060 it will go, it's one of the few games that really kicks the ass of your cpu and fpu :roflmao:
 
If it goes too fast, it will probably crash anyway :roflmao:

I am definitely going to have to buy a copy of Elite II - I was too immature and impatient back in the day, I think with more worldliness and patience I would actually love it.

Bizarrely my plan with my Amiga is actually to indulge in the games I never really played properly, the stuff I played to death like Chaos Engine and Cannon Fodder, although I have found memories I feel like i have done these now :) Too many cool things to do/play and not enough time in life I find :)

Many thanks again everyone, I really appreciate it

:)

I once played James Pond 2 on a A2000 with 030 processor, and the game was too fast plus there was some flickering on the screen. I found the game to be very hard because of this.

I'm considering a ACA630 for my A600 as well, but I hope it will include the possibility for temporarely disabling the 030 either via a keyboard combo on startup, or via a switch.

I would really like a Indivision ECS but I don't want to loose my floppy drive - I am really gutted otherwise I would buy one of these as well :(

The ACA630 has an onboard jumper that turns an externally connected drive (DF1) into (DF0).

So you can remove the internal drive, and use an external one in it's place.
