Hi, ok so I've been playing around with WINUAE again :geek:

But first have a look at this video on the "internet archive webpage". It's from 1990 and it's a TV programme I remember watching called The Computer Chronicles. This episode is all about the NEW Amiga 3000 :D

https://archive.org/details/amiga3000

It lasts about 30mins, and shows as well as other things, NewTec's Video Toaster in action, and the new Workbench 2.0 ;)
Watch out for the news item at the end about laptops, made me chuckle ;)

I spent some time this week seeing if I could create a REAL Amiga hard drive on WINUAE. By this I mean I plugged in an IDE drive via USB to my PC, ran WINUAE, then formatted the drive from Workbench. I think it has worked, boots up in WINUAE anyway. But I haven't got an Amiga to test it on :roll: so a bit of a pointless project really :lol:
Anyone have an Amiga, (in the UK that is) that has a 3.5" IDE port? Do you want to test it out? PM me :)

After I had played about with this for a while I decided to look on the web, seems it has been done before.

But at least I might have found a use for the old Xbox hard drives :) after all 10gb is quite big for an Amiga ;)

I tried the xbox and i did not have much luck wwith some of the aga titles so i just use my real amiga :-)

if you just want to play a few games coinops has a few of the amiga classics, and an amiga addon pack is flying about.

i have found the xbox360 the best console for amiga emulation as it has a bit of power behind it to run a desktop then you can install games under whdload and start them all from the workbench with out swapping disks etc...

what do you mean were great back in the day :-) they are still great now!!! the newer coldfire processors now have a complete 68k translation set it is a shame they have not utilised this and made a modern 68k accelerator with some real cpu power.

they did it with the atari but the price puts you off a bit:

I've managed to create an Xbox bootable DVD disc for UAEX, a W.I.P. at the moment. But it does boot direct from the disc to the Amiga Emulator :) I have sold a few WinUAE DVD's, without ROMs, only Public Domain, Freeware etc.. , on online auction sites.
So just wondering is anyone interested in an Xbox UAEX DVD version?

Question: Is it possible to create a DVD that would boot on an Xbox and run on a Windows PC? One DVD for all formats? ;)

I had an Amiga 500 with the 512MB upgrade in the trapdoor. This machine saw me through my naval career I was a gaming addict.
Weekends stuck in the base made more than comfortable by all the classics, Wings, Cannon Fodder, Lemmings, Gunship 2000,
Superfrog, Darkmere....i could really go on forever. I went online on an Amiga 1200 thanks to the East Kilbride Computer Club,
which was basically a rented room at a primary school which apart from having X-Copy writing to floppies all night had some scene members
that introduced us to BBS and the wonders of going online...I was truly hooked.
For those that haven`t watched From Bedrooms To Billions documentary, you need to! Their latest movie is The Amiga Years and if
its half as good as the first outing its going to be a belter!
