I'm not too sure about the pci card idea as I am not a electronics guru, but I would think it's possible.

Amiga has 3D abilities with TinyGL. It doesn't have the full feature set like DirectX, but some games have been created with it, so TinyGL is an option.

TinyGL?  Surely OS4.1 could support the whole OpenGL library?

I would think the capability is there. Whether it's entirely there is another matter. Nevertheless, TinyGL has enough to make some games and graphic software until the entire OpenGL library would be available.

On OS 4.x it's called MiniGL, but yes, it is a subset of OpenGL. A full MESA port is planned that will support the latest OpenGL specification. However, that's going to take time. Nevertheless, MiniGL is more than good enough for a whole series of OpenGL apps/games.

@ Andeda, yes I ordered my SAm from Acube, why??

And, If versalia said that too you,ten, perhaps this is the reason why my package hasnt arrived yet, as I ordered the board and the os4.1, and to be posted at the same time.

  Nothing special, im just curious.

Thats what they say on their homepage. I ordered my OS4.1 from Amigakit but the delivery time should be the same there i suppose

Quake III. You can find most MiniGL apps on os4depot by doing an advanced search with MiniGL in the requirements field. A few screenshots are available here. There is also more coming...

@ Andeda :

It's ok, Acube Systems is going to email me when they have sent the post(system &os4.1) with the postage number!

He said next week he is expecting to recieve os4.1!
 :-D

@ Hans:

Das ist ja schön

OK, So what or which Quake III do I need to get, one specifically for os4.1??

ANd, is there another listing of games that have been ported?

Curious about it!

 :-o
Are all these for free??

Q3 Arena is not free, but you can buy it cheaply on game stores or Ebay.

OpenArena is free, and is Q3-based. There are also some other Q3-based games (World of Padman, Urban Terror etc) but there is no *yet* stand-alone versions for OS 4.

All of the screenshots that I linked to are for open-source games/apps. There is no master list of games that have been ported. I suggest that you check out os4depot to see what kind of stuff is freely available.

@Mr.Capehill:

So your saying I need the original PC disk, install it onto my os4.1, then download from os4depot, so I can commence to play it on my Amiga Sam with os4.1?

@Hans:
That's handy, I already have the full pc version of Battle for Wesnoth at home, I assume though, due to the download size on os4depot, that it is a fully ported version for os4 versus quake III that needs the original pc disk?

@Fester:
Looks like they are aiming for two consoles, what's next when this is achieved, three consoles?

Sorry, don't want to sound negative, but, I was getting excited over the porting to ps3 idea!
