Hey Salax54, do you have your Workbench filling the overscan area in that A600's LCD? I'd love to see how awesome your Workbench looks, with such an expanded A600 you could have a pretty sweet setup.

Great job!

Is that the Amiga's version of getting Rickroll'd?

As a laptop engineer I thought about this many times in the past.

Problem I found was the -(ve) voltages on the power connector, and if I couldn't find a way to run it off batteries I never would have started.

One day, maybe one day. Have quite a few scrapped cases, just a matter of finding the right one that would sort of fit. And then spends 100s on various trinkets like keyboard adapters and PS/2 mouse adapters etc etc.

Getting a suitable 1/3 height floppy to work with the Amiga may have been an issue too, didn't get that far. I'm not really a DIY electronics whiz though, I only fix/replace what's there OR I sometimes fix actual LCD screens by replacing the active matrix or backlight.

Someone will do it properly one day though with a REAL Amiga, a PC or Mac with something that runs a flavour of UAE in order to play Sword of Sodan is not an Amiga though ;)

Best bet is either CD32 or A600, unless you want to take a blade to an A1200 m/board and solder the bit you cut off!
