Re: Bought this (Modern) hardware today

Yes. MiSTer is FPGA. I agree it acts like an Amiga when running the core, Minimig, but I would not personally not sell it on eBay listed as an Amiga, or otherwise claim that I have an actual authentic Amiga (even if it would work 100% authentic) in my possession. I personally would claim that I …

There are always an option for the Vampire V4 to look like an old Commodore machine. Take an empty Amiga case, with an original keyboard. Attach a USB keyboard converter and install the V4 inside the case. Extend the ports with cables, and then you have something that have the feel of a Commodore …

Curious (just so that I understand your personal thinking and definitions - not arguing against them); Do you count MiSTer as real Amiga (or real IBM 486)? Do you count Spectrum Next (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spectrumnext/zx-spectrum-next-issue-2) as a real Spectrum? If the Mist is an …

https://i.imgur.com/jDBr2RIh.jpg The IBM model 80 is a 386 machine. I'm pleased with flame. Thank you! Again. It depends on what you want out of the Amiga platform. At the end of the day, it is just a platform. I am a look-and-feel guy. Congratulate me, today I've bought my first Model M keyboard! …

Vampire V4 is not a real hardware Amiga. It's definitely hardware, Amiga compatible and likely uses a licensed Amiga ROM. Whether that makes it a "real hardware Amiga" or not is a matter of perspective, IMHO . It's definitely not a vintage Commodore Amiga product, no arguments on that . No need to …

I have to comment on this. If a real Amiga is defined by whoever made it. Then every single Commodore Amiga is not a real Amiga. It was invented by Amiga (or Hi-Toro) and thus they are the makers of real Amiga's. However. They did not manage to build a consumer grade machine. Commodore made it. And …

I really have to get myself a real hardware Amiga someday. I feel like I'm missing out . May I suggest an Amiga500 with scandoubler, 512k upgrade and Gotek drive. This is a setup, that can run about 75 to 80% of all Amiga games. And if you only want the classic titles from the era of the Amiga were …

Re: What are you eating/drinking? (the vogons food thread)

Oooh I love both of those things and yes they do complement each other - your ratios are a little out though 😁 I did eat half of the bag, before I took the picture. Another good thing, is that the beer is not of same type each can. It is as if the beer used, are a mix of different brews. They …
