.: Posted: AndreasM @ 26.04.2017 - 09:42
Once again there will be a Classic Computers' exhibit at Maker Faire Bay Area 2017! Once again my fellow exhibitors and I will be displaying classic personal computers for fairgoers to enjoy. To celebrate its 35th anniversary, I'll be bringing in a Commodore 64 with JiffyDOS (or RAMLink with JiffyDOS), 1541 or 1571 drive, and SD2IEC card drive. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, I'll have an Amiga 2000 with a Blizzard 2060 50 MHz board, Amiga OS 3.1, 128 megs of Fast RAM, 2 megs of Chip RAM, SCSI CD-ROM drive, SCSI controller board with 8 megs of RAM, NewTek Video Toaster, Digital Processing Systems Personal TBC, A2065 Ethernet card, Digital Processing Systems Personal Animation Recorder (PAR), 4 gig SCSI main hard drive, and 500 meg SCSI hard drive for the PAR. Also because of attendee demand, I'm bringing back the Texas Instruments TI-99 4/A with Peripheral Expansion Box, various cards, and various cartridges, including the new SD card cartridge.

The other Classic Computer exhibitors will be bringing in their machines, like the Commodore PET 2001, Tandy, and Apple II (to celebrate the 40th anniversary of these computers), Apple IIGS, Altair, and various Ataris.

These are the dates and times for Maker Faire 2017 -

New Flash-ROM for Catweasel Z-II "S-Class" Availab Facebook Google Twitter
.: Posted: AndreasM @ 23.04.2017 - 19:58
MangaClub write on

Every owner of this nice piece of Hardware should listen up now!

The Catweasel Z-II "S-Class" got a new Updated FlashROM Available.
But at fist some Backgroundstory

I had to replace the Flash ROM on the Card because mine got broken and i always needed to rely on a LOADIDE command i had to load via Bootdisk to load the Expansion driver (catweaselide) resident into memory to Enable Autoboot Capabilities.

This always required a one timerestart. Replacing the Flashrom on the card with a nessesarily same AMD flash chip as there was before allowed me to flash the buddha back to its sense... But wait! It doesnt really work.. my CF card wont get recognised... my old CF just a bit.. Everything does not work out as expected!

So i started wo wonder what might happend there since i downloaded the very last EB_Final archive from the Individual Wiki. (Booting up with my startdisk worked like a charm afterall)

I started to dig around and i noticed that the scsi version of the "catweaselide" driver i use on the Autoboot disk is much newer than the one that is located n the catwesel.rom file delivered with the eb_final archive. Infact it has been updated 10 years later! (Catweasel_IDE 103.19 (19.01.2010)...written by Oliver Kastl)

So what i did is some Simple Hexediting to Update the scsi.device located in the old rom with the one from the expansion driver and flash it back. It worked out like a charm! All CF cards get recognised now and it is super stable!
Although i have NO idea where i got this updated expansion driver from i am happy i found it and clould flash it back.

Therefore i attach those 2 Files here on the Post to make it Available for everyone else.

I take no responsibility it works for you and that you brick your card! Always test the Catweasel2017.rom File before hand on Winuae (it can emulate a Zclass) and your Compact Flash OR get yourself LoadIDE from the Idefix archive and softflash your amiga with the "catweaselide" file to see if it works for you. Just then considder reflashing the Buddha!

eNewsReader released Facebook Google Twitter
.: Posted: AndreasM @ 23.04.2017 - 19:58
eNewsReader is a ground-breaking program for AmigaOS4, which allows you to easily keep track of tens (or even hundreds!) of news sources. You no-longer need to visit many websites every day or week, on the off-chance there might be something new. And by centralising all your news sources in one place, you will save masses of time, so it's great for people with busy lives. I created eNewsReader because of my frustration at how bad existing news readers were (such as Feedly & Digg Reader, never mind Facebook & Twitter themselves).

Hollywood: RapaGUI.1.1 released Facebook Google Twitter
.: Posted: AndreasM @ 23.04.2017 - 14:09

Airsoft Softwair is proud to present an update to one of the most popular Hollywood plugins: RapaGUI. RapaGUI is a cross-platform GUI toolkit that allows the creation of native (!) GUIs for AmigaOS (MUI), Windows, Linux (GTK), and Mac OS based systems! GUI layouts in RapaGUI are conveniently defined in XML files which are then converted into full-blown GUIs by RapaGUI on-the-fly. It just doesn't get any easier!

RapaGUI supports all the widgets you need to create modern GUI applications, including multi-column listviews, treeviews, tabbed page widgets, toolbars, status bars, text editor widgets, menu bars, HTML views and much more. The highlight of RapaGUI, however, is certainly its inbuilt Hollywood MOAI class. This class allows dynamic embedding of complete Hollywood displays into GUIs which can be used to combine Hollywood's powerful multimedia functionality with RapaGUI's GUI abilities into one powerful application.

RapaGUI 1.1 is a major update and contains the following new features:

- Unicode support (requires Hollywood 7)
- 64-bit support on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS (requires Hollywood 7)
- Drag'n'drop support
- Combobox class greatly enhanced
- Lots of new functions for Choice class
- Online help for the Windows IDE (requires Hollywood 7)
- Support for high DPI monitors (requires Hollywood 7)
- Several other smaller improvements and bug fixes

RapaGUI comes with almost 300 pages of documentation in various formats like PDF, HTML, AmigaGuide, and CHM that describes the GUI programming basics in detail and provides a convenient MOAI function and class reference. A step-by-step tutorial that guides you to your first RapaGUI program is also included. On top of that, almost 20 example scripts are included in the distribution archive, including advanced scripts like a complete video player which really show off the power of Hollywood and RapaGUI working together.

All this makes RapaGUI the ultimate cross-platform GUI toolkit, carefully crafted for you sailors of the seven GUI seas! Only RapaGUI allows rapid cross-platform GUI development on all islands - it is the ultimate fusion of all the different OS GUI toolkits into one MOAI face, carved in stone for eternity and beyond. RapaGUI is available free of charge and can be downloaded from the official Hollywood portal at Versions for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, AROS, Windows, Mac OS X and Linux are provided. AmigaOS users please do note that although RapaGUI is still compatible with MUI 3.8, it is highly recommended to install MUI 4.0 to use all of RapaGUI's features.

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair - the hardest working men in code business.
