iAmiga

April 17th, 2007 by Quatrux

I found this site, it is an alternative to google search engine, but only searches through sites related to Amiga, seems quite nice as most of those sites died having Amiga content, due to most of Amiga sites went down or were closed and it was hard to update everything, so you can try iAmiga Search

Don’t be very happy as this is nothing just a custom Google Search, which anyone can do, I remember I played with it when I was 15 years old.

started playing Warcraft!

April 16th, 2007 by Quatrux

Well, as I am quite an retro gamer and usually only play old games, but usually I don’t play, so due to I didn’t know what to do, I looked up my collection of DOS Games and started playing Warcraft using the good old and simple Dos-box, I finished the first mission quite fast, so I think with time I will play it and finish.. I remember on Amiga I played and finished with cheats and without cheats Dune II, that was really a great game, even though Amiga never had a version of Warcraft, I remember I tried to emulate MacOS on Amiga using Shape Shifter, due to I had an m68k processor as all Amiga’s had or added PPC, anyway, it was quite fast to run MacOS and Play the Mac version of Warcraft, but it annoyed me to emulate, so I never bothered to continue.. Also, Battlecraft had to be the game for Amiga to replace Warcraft, but as I know the project is/was abandon and never really worked as it could, only some demo is available with a map editor from the Aminet.. So I think I will enjoy Warcraft 1 Humans & Orcs ;)

My Amiga 1200 classic board Photos ;)

February 17th, 2007 by Quatrux

I thought to post some of my made photos of my Amiga 1200, the best Amiga ever created in my opinion and that was in the year 1992, which was capable of displaying 16,7 million of colours, because of the AGA chipset. It still works in the year 2007 and is expanded to be more powerful, but I never made a superb Amiga out from it, I left it to be a real classic Amiga board, with the AGA chipset, Motorola 68030 + FPU running over 50 MHz and 32 MB of SIMM RAM.. Always was using the 50Hz PAL mode monitor, due to on it Amiga games are playable and you really feel much better playing games on such a monitor, even though near it I had a VGA monitor for my AmigaOS3.9, Workbench.. a really well made OS, but Today, in the Year 2007 all I can say that I am not such an Amigan as I used to be, Amiga doesn’t fully suit me and to upgrade it, costs a lot of money, which I as a student don’t have.. and when ANN.lu closed, I thought that Amiga is really dead, even though I have an Efika board and still am waiting for MorphOS to work on Efika.. I never used a PPC board on my A1200, never used a Voodoo graphics card and never used any sound card, I enjoyed myself with the Paula Audio chipset, even though to listen to mp3 wasn’t possible – well it was, but low quality, I was converting everything to ADP4 and AIFF.. As you can see I had a 4,2 GB Hard drive and a lot of CDs.. Also, my Amiga was connected to the Internet through a x86 PC Linux machine with Privoxy and Firewall since the year 1998-2000 and I was able to fully use it chatting on IRC, Jabber, using the best Email client ever YAM, browsing the World wide web with IBrowse and Aweb, connecting to FTP with ATC (Ami Trade Center) and everything else.. I started to do programming with C on Amiga, I started to learn PHP+MySQL and HTML on my Amiga, it was my first computer to be used so much… After it I moved to Linux and after Linux for my studies I also use Windows, even though I can do everything in Linux.. Anyway, enjoy my Amiga photos. ;)

my Amiga 500+ Photos ;)

February 16th, 2007 by Quatrux

Here, you can find some of my Amiga 500+ photos, I thought to put them online, due to I don’t know where to put them until the Q-Zone website doesn’t work, so this Blog is just perfect.. The Amiga itself seems to be quite dirty, but what do you want, it was developed in the year ~1992 and it went through a fire in a house and still works, it was my first Amiga computer, even though it is a “better” version of the Amiga500 which was developed much earlier, usually it is called Amiga500+ or Amiga500plus, or just plain old way A500+, A500plus and etc. Call whatever you want.. It has a Motorola 68000 CPU/Microprocessor running at 7.09 MHz (PAL) / 7.16 MHz (NTSC), like its predecessor, 1 MB of RAM, but I have an Expansion Card and had total of 4 MB of RAM on the machine, also the Expansion Card could be used to have a SCSI Hard Drive, but it never worked for me, but I had two disk drives, with small floppies and big black floppies. As this upgrade had Kickstart 2.04 (v37.175) I was able to use Workbench 37.67 (release 2.04) without any problems and really had several disks of perfect Workbench+DOpus appliactions all using the XPK and PPLoad Sequence, oh those were the DAYS! I played a lot of games, good games, because it has an ECS graphics chipset, capable of showing 4096 colours.. I also used it to program in Basic, used the Blitz Basic! Enjoy!
