GottaGoFastRAM: 8 MB Autoconfig Fast RAM for Amiga 500/1000/2000 and CDTV

Published 29.11.2020 - 15:37 by osz

GottaGoFastRAM is a hardware project that extends an Amiga 500/1000/2000 or CDTV with 8 MB of Autoconfig Fast RAM. The project is based on the mem68k project. The extension is installed between the CPU socket and the CPU. If you want, GottaGoFastRAM can also be attached to an ide68k board so that this "hamburger", consisting of CPU, GottaGoFastRAM and ide68k, is plugged onto the CPU socket from top to bottom. This can also be seen on the photos on the GitHub project page:

Gotek Floppy Disk Emulator V2

Published 29.11.2020 - 14:59 by osz

Forgive me if my modest linguistic abilities let me down and I am wrong, but the following page should be Czech according to the Google translator, so I assume that the origin of this project is there too.

The Gotek Floppy Disk Emulator V2 is a project on GitHub that is committed to replicating the Gotek project. If you translate the Czech description, you will quickly see that it is not just a simple replica, but rather an improved version of the Gotek drive that uses the free FlashFloppy firmware and supports the FlashFloppy extensions on the hardware side. The implementation mainly relies on SMD components.

In addition to some photos, the project page also contains the Gerber files that are required for the production of the circuit boards. [...]

The company Retro Games has announced to release a revised version of the Amiga 500 for 2021.
Pretty sure, the Amiga 500 will come with pre-installed games. It will be exciting to see what the developers will choose. For Retro Games the Amiga 500 is not the first retro computer.

Looty: An Amiga port of Booty

Published 29.11.2020 - 13:31 by osz

Before someone jumps up and shouts: "That's not new!" Yes, right, but we'll come to that in a moment.

Looty is an Amiga port of the ZX Spectrum platformer Booty by Jon F. Cain. Actually, according to the author, Looty is a homage to the classic from 1984. Originally the game was written for the Amiga in 1993 and sent to the Assassins PD Free Disk Collection the following year. In 2020 the game experienced some bug fixes and was expanded to include the ability to control the game using the cursor keys and to switch off the music if necessary. There were also some game-specific adjustments.

Looty is about solving one level after the other by avoiding opponents, reaching different platforms via ladders, collecting keys, opening doors and collecting various extras. If you like, you can let off steam with the included level editor. [...]
