Amigamaniac
« on: May 23, 2012, 09:22:23 PM »
Just to say that I received my PSX to DB9 cables the other day and they are brilliant. Very well built (very professional) and work a treat. Can recommend that anyone playing games on their Amiga get one or two. The have solved the most frustrating Amiga gaming problem ever - Nova bombs in Battle Squadron (no more random and frantic rotation of the stick just press a button and 'booooom').

Up for jump -pah, I clone a button.

Straff in Gloom - brilliant.

No more paying over the odds for a dodgy CD32 controller- just use a PS1/2 controller and pop it in CD32 mode!

Also, had lots of good communication with Nathan who seems to be snowed under with loads of orders. He's a good guy, if you're waiting for something, just give him a chance and it will come.

And finally, remember, without people like Amigamaniac, our Amiga experiences will be less rich and pleasurable.

Hmmm...I might be interested in getting a couple of these. Do you have a photo of the adapter? I've checked his site and it says not for A600 yet, and that's what I'd want to use it with. Just my luck!

I concur. Ordered and paid in july, never got any feedback from nathan cadwallen, only automated email responses. Filed a claim and will receive my money back. Stay away.

Good news...
Nathan has contacted users again.
He's been having some health issues and explained it all really well in the e-mail.
Suffice to say, he's getting back to clearing things up.

I can totally sympathize there...
Although different, I'm going thru some health issues myself and last week was finally able to breathe easier when I heard the word "non-malignant".  :-)

So, all the best to Nathan; and everyone who has dealings with him currently should be getting them resolved before too long..

All the best Nathan!

i'm waiting over 2 months for my rgb vga adapters... hmmm Nathan were art thou?
The speed of service and communiation (reply to email over 2 months) is something desired and to be worked on.  

Also, had lots of good communication with Nathan who seems to be snowed under with loads of orders. He's a good guy, if you're waiting for something, just give him a chance and it will come.

Come on guys, this is a hobby. If you expect timely delivery from a one-man band, doing hand-made custom manufactures for 20 year old + machines at prices that don't pay minimum wage then you need a reality check.

Nathan is a good lad, doing this small community in service, for prices that don't really justify the wingeing/complaints directed at him. Plus, he was unfortunate enough to go through very real health issues, that cannot be anticipated in advance.

Thanks very much Nathan! :-)

I don't mind the waiting but the thing was lack of communication. And no, automated email messages don't count as such. But he has now contacted people and things seem to be in check so it's all good I think.

True. He does not respond to any email. I am sorry but even if it is a hobby, communication is basically all one needs. Too bad.

Strafe in GLoom?!? I wonder if mine does that. I got mine off the guy who originally designed these a while before Maniac carried them. How'd you set it up?
