I'm in Mesa and own an Amiga 1200 and CD32.  Only fire them up every couple of year though  :(

I'm a Phoenician, myself. Don't do too much with my Amiga anymore, although I still have it. I just like keeping an eye on "the scene". :) [Waves]

All it takes is pulling the Amiga it of storage and playing with it for a day, and you will be hooked again. That is how drugs like the Amiga work - you may stay clean for a while, but you will relapse again!

Bomrat, I would make the drive to Phoenix for a Meetup sometime. Anyone else interested?

Sadly, I wish that were true, but, with one notable exception, I kinda lost interest in gaming. When last I messed with my Amiga it was mostly tinkering and programming it.

Wouldn't mind doing that some more these days, but most of my time is taken up with other responsibilities and hobbies... :)

I live in Mesa, AZ and I echo your comments.  My taste in gaming has matured over the years and the Amiga simply doesn't offer much beyond side-scrollers, and platformers.  Those were fine in 1990 when most home computers weren't capable of anything more sophisticated, but it's 28 years later and I only drag out my A1200 these days to relive the pain of C/C++ programming and debugging on classic hardware.  The last time I had it out was about 18 months ago to update a scientific plotting library called PLPLOT  http://aminet.net/package/gfx/show/plplot68k-5.0.1

Have you checked out bebbo's cross-platform GCC 6.x 68K port? Even has initial stages of remote debugging! Tony Wilen's PFS is now compiled with this system (for example) with the resulting binaries smaller than previous versions. Bebbo has spent quite some time on getting the optimizations to a good point.

More info here: http://eab.abime.net/forumdisplay.php?f=118
And his github page: https://github.com/bebbo/amiga-gcc

Yeah, I will definitely use a cross-compiler for my next classic Amiga project unless the standalone Vampire goes to market soon.  AmiDevCPP looked interesting but the site is down and probably won't be back anytime soon.  But the installer is still available here:  https://web.archive.org/web/20160531103718if_/http://amidevcpp.amiga-world.de/AmiDevCpp/AmiDevCpp_graceful_Bulldozer_v098_Setup.exe

I use Visual Studio and Eclipse (mostly Eclipse) for my cross-compiling. Mind you, I use the base-compiler from AmiDevCpp with VS and Eclipse, but those two tools are much better to work with. I've been meaning to try Bebbo's compiler with them, just haven't got around to it yet. :)
