I built a raspmiga
« on: November 24, 2020, 08:00:42 PM »
I already have a bunch of amigas, 500's, 1200's, 600's but I keep them in a pristine condition and not use them (because im a collectioner type and I want to save those for future generations. So I wanted to have one that I can actually use but I never felt like getting turbo cards, indivision aga or even a vampire (besides the standalone version) so I thought I'd build a raspberry based emulator that looks like the real thing.

I bought a broken amiga 500 keyboard (the membrane needed replacing - brand new one installed), fixed it, retrobrightened the keys and made it look like new.
Then I bought a damaged, yellowed and heavily scratched case which needed some work but in the end turned out just like new.
Then a raspberry PI 4b, then Tynemouth USB converter for amiga keyboards, 3d printed ports, some cables and here it is:





I will be running Pimiga on it as I was told it's pretty good. Do you guys have any other ideas on what I should use ?

Congratulations.

Agreed! Nice 3D application. Wish I had one. Seen that new 4D printer on the market?

I bought two A600's a while back.
Before that I asked the dealer if I could buy both at a reduced amount and they agreed.
I have one with a Spanish kb and one with a UK bk.
Both now have solid state drives ( cf and a sd card).
Later.
