Maybe someone could provide some alternate, non-Star Wars graphic assets? I'd even be willing to take a crack at it if nobody else is.

This is actually the very point. It is a basic STG game engine making use of Natami SuperAGA graphics modes. It is the same engine that runs the 194x Deluxe game we have shown pictures from earlier. Anyone who gets a Natami can take this code and base his or her game on it - that is the very purpose of it. The Star Wars template/mod just happened because Gunnar loves Star Wars, and some team members are helping him with it.

Regarding the Windows/OS X/Linux ports, they are for the moment just used for development purposes (remember, only Thomas has Natami boards ATM). If they will be distributed too is not decided yet.

Regarding the legal situation, PD games and mods are usually OK with LucasArts. I respect all of your viewpoints about this - I myself have had my doubts if it is a good idea using such a high profile IP, no matter if the game material is 100% free and open. Maybe the project needs to be totally detached from the Natami Team.

Yes, I think that long-time Amiga enthusiasts are going to be happier with Natami than anything that has been released or announced in recent years.  OK, I'm speaking for myself.


Yes I very much agree on that! I remember the time, when Commodore left this business, that made me very disappointed of that there wasn't Amiga 5000 with SAGA chipset to be produced. But some 16 years later things are looking very promising indeed!

My money's burning a hole in my pocket awaiting the release of the Natami, but it's the first Amiga related product in over a decade that really has my interest... :)

Just hope it I arrives before I kick the bucket... :)

Ah, no fear. It'll only be so long before Franko figures out how to upload his consciousness to the Internet and live on amiga.org 24/7.

I've got one of me highly trained squirrels working on that little problem right now, he reckons a few more pints and he'll have cracked it... :)



(just think living inside a.org that would be cool, heck I wouldn't need to pay Council Tax anymore and I'd be able to post even quicker just by using my thought waves now that would be neat... :))

I thought he'd already managed that? You'll know when he has complete control when he implements a 'Sassenach filter' to weed out those south of the border.

I'm glad to finally see the RIGHT attitude around this community because since about 2004 it's been a big pile of sh!t!  2011 begins with optimism:  SAM460, X1000, ReplayArcade, Natami, ACA x30.

Now if only we could merge AROS, MOS and OS4.x...
