NovaCoder has left the building..
« on: November 25, 2015, 06:01:47 AM »
Hi Guys,

A few people already know that I'm taking a break from Amiga coding and selling my gear (a few items will be appearing on AmiBay soon).

I thought it would be nice to list all of the ports that I've been working on over the past few years since I got my first ever Amiga

I'll try and list these in roughly the correct order of development..


DOTT AGA (dedicated port) 030


ScummVM AGA 030/040/060


ScummVM OCS/ECS 030


ScummVM RTG 040


BOOM AGA 060


AmiQuake AGA 060


AmiQuake 2 AGA 060


AmiWolf OCS/ECS/AGA 030


AmiSpear OCS/ECS/AGA 030


Descent Rebirth AGA/RTG 040/060


ZDOOM AGA/RTG 040/060


ODAMEX AGA/RTG 040/060


Ultima 7 AGA/RTG 040/060


AmiDuke AGA 060


DOSBox AGA/RTG 040/060

I have enjoyed quite a few of your ports so thanks for that!
What will you spend  your time on when your amiga is gone?
I hope to see you here again soon! :)

You have done some really nice work, will miss you!
I hope you will be back some day, will you even sell your 060 card?
Keep your A1200 at least! With luck when you get back the "amiga feeling" there are affordable FPGAs for it :)

Thanks for all your excelent work over the years!

Thanks guys :)

Yes it's been quite a ride, I've accomplished more than I ever expected!

Yes already sold my beloved 1260, A1200 next.

Will probably get another one in a few years just to play games :)

Agreed, keep at least one cause when you later on want to get another it will be much more expensive, Amiga classic stuff keeps raising in price...
Greatly appreciate your ports too. Hope you'll be back when the FPGA accelerators mature.

Gr8 achievements there congrats!
Is the source code of your ports available so anyone can contribute if needed?

You've accomplished some amazing things. It would be a huge loss for the community if you've left. You are a very talented person mate.

Thanks for all your work and help. I support your decision as I know sometimes it's good to drop habits to see other things in life.

Good luck, and thanks for the great ports :-)
Amigas owned:
1) A1200 Power Tower, Blizzard PPC 603+040 128Mb, BVision
2) A1200 Desktop with an ugly looking hole hacked out of the trap door cover to accommodate a DCE built Blizzard 1260 with 64Mb (angled SIMM slot).
not in use:
3) A4000/040 - has an Emplant card installed.  Sadly no video output:-( current location: loft
4) A1000 - owned it since about 1988, current location: loft (AFAIK it still works though)
Sundry bits:
Blizzard 1230/50 mk2, 32Mb. GVP 1230/40, 8Mb GVP SIMM.

I keep hoping maybe one of these days an '060 AGA machine will fall into my lap so I can try some of your ports!  But who am I kidding, I don't have room for another computer so I'll just have to live vicariously through all your videos.  ;)  Awesome work, and best of luck in your future ventures!  :D

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

Very impressed with all the stuff you've done. Enjoy your break! Maybe when you come back we'll all have fpga systems and be able to play your games above 200 mips :)
