Title: The Beagleboard: suitable for Acorn games?
Post by: gaula92 on August 27, 2010, 03:38:27 PM
That's it, guys. In my neverending interest for alternative platforms, I've read some stuff about this cheap, cool-looking board.
It runs RISCOS at speeds never seen before, with a ridicule power need! ARM power inside.

Have you guys tried the BeagleBoard with RISCOS? I don't know about the OS's ins and outs, but being an 80's piece of art I believe it must rely on custom chips for graphics & sound, in Amiga style. And that makes me wonder...
How compatible with classic RISCOS Amiga ports is this really? Does it run, let's say, Acorn Lemmings?

I'm about to venture out and get one of those, but only if it can run some classic Acorn games. Gaming is not my main interest, but I believe an OS without good games is just boring.
