New Amiga 1200 cases availability
« on: May 08, 2018, 08:41:27 AM »
Dear Amigans,

After the initial batch of Amiga 1200 replacement cases, a second run (1000+ cases) was ordered by our Retail & Distributions partners Amiga on the Lake (for the North Americas), AmigaStore (for the European Union) and A-EON / AmigaKit (for the United Kingdom).

These are in the colors "Amiga Technologies White", "CDTV Midnight Black" and "Translucent".

Earlier this week we received notifications that the shipments for the UK and the European Union have been shipped and are on the high seas. For the North Americas the shipment is ready for the US Forwarder to collect such that they can be on their merry way soon as well.

Meanwhile the production of the CD32 cases with our Case Manufacturing partner is well underway. Once completed, images will be sent to us such that we can share these with you.

our Amiga Keycaps replacements manufacturing partner (different from the case manufacturer) is also well underway. We are aware of the fact that it took too long for our liking, but we are happy to see that this project is now at full steam and nearing completion as well.

With the Amiga 500 case project underway, we will of course do another Amiga Keycaps replacement campaign with a lower fixed goal and a much faster turn-around time as the injection moldings creation is the most time consuming part.

We will keep you posted and would like to ask your attention once more for our Amiga 500 Case Campaign.. we need your support to make it work!

Is there a way to mount a standalone Vampire card in these A1200 cases? I'm sure i'm not the only person wondering about it.

Of course there is, the V4 is rather tiny. You just need a frame or a plate that connects to the existing screw holes and which again holds the V4 board - even a cardboard plate will do. And then you need a keyboard adapter, and there are already many options for making USB keyboard from A1200 keyboards (or A500 keyboards).

I'm working on building a Mini Mac G4 into my light blue A1200 case, dedicated for MorphOS :)

That actually sounds like a neat idea and the right color case, to boot.  Put up pics when done, please.

Slightly OT:  Offering $400 USD for a dark gray case, if anyone has an unused extra?

They should be priced at this:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supply_and_demand   But given this is Amiga, I would guess $$$$ on top of that.  :lol:

Of course :)  One issue I am facing currently, is that the motherboard just turns itself off after 1 minute of being on, regardless of what I am doing with it. The power button is just shortening two pins, and that works fine, but exactly one minute later, it turns itself off - no, it is not warm or anything yet, so I suspect it detects that something is lacking of some sorts, and powers off. During that one minute of power-on, I have a few times managed to boot MorphOS iso into installer from a USB stick from OpenFirmware simply by typing as fast I can :laughing:

I am looking into getting yet another G4 Mini to steal parts from, as the 1.5GHz mobo I have for this, was bought as just the mobo.

Any chance for more replacement keycaps being made?

Wow, I didn't realize people were still waiting on keys. I wish there was a compatible replacement in some modern keycap for temporary use.
