Interesting new things in Amiga-land

So, some really cool things have been popping up lately over in Amiga-land:


WinUAE version 3.2.0 will be adding some VERY cool new options:

  • Emulation of PCI Bridge devices (DCE G-Rex, DKB Wildfire, Prometheus, and Mediator 1200 and 4000
  • + Emulation of SB128 audio cards
  • + Emulation of 53C815 SCSI controller
  • + Emulation of Realtek 8029 (NE2000) networking cards
  • + Emulation of Voodoo3 video card, including support for Warp3D emulation (as soon as they figure out how to extract Voodoo3 code from MAME)
  • PC BridgeBoards (probably all the way up to 386 at least, maybe the goldengate 486 if we are fortunate
  • Genlock output support
  • Support for the Commodore A2410 (see CyberGraphX4 support image –> here <–
  • There has also been other talk of eventual Video Toaster board support (but probably not this version

    Commodore’s Android phone

    Commodore will be releasing their own Android Phone called the PET with classic beige case coloring. It should have built-in emulators for the retro experience.

    Replacement A1200 cases

    New A1200 cases coming soon, in multiple colors. See this link –> here <–

    Amiga Walker clone (RaspberryPI2)

    Well, it will be a Raspberry PI 2 box with a version of AROS on it, but it looks interesting. I hope they one day have a mini-itx version at least.

    1. Anyone know where I can find a guide for enabling WinUAE’s Bridgeboard capabilities, loading MS-DOS and/or Windows 3.1 (or Win95?), etc…

      • a few people have put out basic ideas in the WinUAE thread for bridgeboards on eab.abime.net. I’m looking for a visual guide showing which files to select, screenshots, setting up DOS partitions, etc.
