Thank you that's all I wanted to know, after my experience with OS4.0 and despite what Karlos & Nicholas claim without an RTG board of some kind OS4.0 was just unusable... :)

So at least now I know OS4.1 is not for me, I only asked because once again it's only being claimed you just need a PPC card and no mention of needing a GFX card, thank you for clearing that up for me... :)


It's been years since I ran the beta but it was fine in eight colours, no worse than 3.x on the same machine  performance wise.

I'm banking on a Natami with a PPC card. Knowing that Natami is on the horizon, I'm kinda of not wanting to upgrade either of my Amigas any (much) more and just start saving for that. If it had a PPC expansion, I'd be in 7th heaven me thinks.

Of course they could just learn from the MorphOS team, get their heads out of their asses, and port OS 4.1 to old PPC macs so everyone can afford to join in on the fun...


+1 to that!

but this is about keeping our classic systems going and up to date and not about keeping old macs out of the garbage dumps:angry:

Franko, I'm shocked that you have this attitude because I know how much you enjoy your "real" Amiga systems and this news definitely pumps in new life into the old girls! heck I was hoping you would program some new stuff for the upcoming OS4.2 release;)

Yeah by folks like Karlos, but when I purchased OS 4.0 there was no mention in the advertising or even on the box that I would need an RTG card as well to make it useable... :(

It's simply stated like the first post here an A1200 with PCC card is all that's needed... ;)

How many time do I have to say it, I do run it in standard video modes and no matter what it still runs slower than a one legged tortoise, surely thats not too difficult to understand for the umpteenth time... :rolleyes:

@ kik300r

How can it pump life into real Amiga when once again it's going to be slower than a dead donkey unless you have a GFX card... :(

Nah... afraid this aint the holy grail I've been looking for... ;)


@Karlos

I bet it doesn't mind though, I'll talk to anyone who cares to listen (or not) whichever the case may be... :)

Anyway these bot thingies need attention too, I recall a wee while back you posted a link to some bot thingy that you could have a conversation with to try and prove if it was a bot or a real people, spoke to it for hours so I did then me Mac froze up... :(


@ actung_bab

Howdee Doody mate... :)

I would send you it but it's such a burden looking after one of these things I couldn't let you suffer that, so I'll keep it for now and maybe leave it to you in me will... :)

PS: PS3 aint for me I'm afraid, got no Amiga badge on it... ;)

Hey Franko somebody here in the forums searched for OS4 for classics - probably you both can settle an agreement?

Native Deneb driver is mentioned as a possible future update, wonder if it will even happen...

ah c'mon I've read your posts where you say that you buy all kinds of junk off EBay so why not buy a GFX card for your miggies mate (or at least trade some of that junk for one):confused:

@ Franko

I know you probably want to keep your A1200 in the "wedge", but seriously consider putting it in a tower with a Mediator board and a good Radeon card.

I use a 256MB Radeon card in my A4000 to give me some very nippy 1920x1080 displays.  Before that card arrived I tried it with a 1 or 2MB no-name ViRGE card yanked out of an old Pentium PC and that worked quite nicely with the standard ViRGE driver.
A2000, A3000, 2 x A1200T, A1200, A4000Tower & Mediator, CD32, VIC-20, C64, C128, C128D, PET 8032, Minimig & ARM, C-One, FPGA Arcade... and AmigaOne X1000.

Good news for the Amiga users that have Amiga Classic with PPC boards, only that they will can enjoy the new software for OS 4.1 more slowly than the Amiga user with new hardware.
Amiga 500 with ROMs 1.3-2.05 and M-Tec AT 500 with hard disk and 4MB Ram.
WinUAE + Original OS 3.5&3.9
Sam440ep 800 MHZ + OS 4.1 F.E.
Sam460ex 1 GHz + OS 4.1 + Update 6. K.O.
MacMini 1.5 GHz + MorphOS 3.9
PowerBook G4 1.65 + MorphOS 3.9

Mmm, nothing like those pre-announcements of upcoming announcements! :p ;)

BTW, Will this update be free for existing 4.0 users?
MorphOS is Amiga done right! :)

Could you clarify this time when you say "for Amiga 1200/3000/4000 equipped with the appropriate PowerPC based accelerator card" that this software is useless on such a machine without some form of RTG card as well... :)

Or is this unlike 4.0 (which I bought) and was not told that I would need an RTG card to make it usable along with my BlizzardPPC... :(

So is an RTG card required as well for 4.1 Classic or will it run at decent speed (unlike 4.0) on just an A1200 with a PPC card... thank you... :)



Why buy a PPC card and not also a BVision? I bought my BlizzardPPC mostly to be able to use a graphics card. Makes no sense to whine about it since everybody knows AGA is slow as hell.
