Amiga CD32 IDE+RAM card in the works

TerribleFire, known for open-source Amiga accelerator designs on YouTube, has added the CD32 as one of the devices he is now making cards for.

This one appears to be a RAM and IDE controller card. As his A500 accelerators have evolved over time, I would expect this one to as well.

Single boot disk for A1000

So, I’ve never had an A1000, although I hope to one day.  However, unless you are using an ACA500 or another hardware mod, you’ll find booting an a1000 is a two-step process: a Kickstart floppy and a workbench floppy.

Someone recently rediscovered a software application that creates a single-disk for booting and is still commerically available.  Read about his discovery –> here <–

 

MorphOS on emulation may be possible soon

MorphOS is one of my favorite NG Amiga derivatives but currently, it requires either expensive, hard to find PowerPC hardware or old Mac PowerPC hardware.  I’ve personally wished we could run it under emulation like we can now with Classic Amiga and OS4.1FE.

Well, that may soon be possible.  The widely used QEMU emulation software (part of which is powering the PowerPC cpu portion of WinUAE and FS-UAE), may soon enable MorphOS under emulation.

I’d read many times that one of the MorphOS team had modified QEMU at one time to run MorphOS, but never shared the patches. Well, there is now an effort underway to add SAM460ex emulation to QEMU.  When this is complete, MorphOS should be able to be used under emulation as SAM460ex is one of the boards supported by that OS.

DropBox when using emulation

Okay, about 4 years ago (or so), I wrote up a quick guide for using Dropbox transparently from within Windows emulation, so that it looks like a native app on the Amiga side.  It was a very simple guide with linked screenshots.

As I’m planning to get Amikit X soon, I’ll be following my own guide soon to get desktop access to syncing with dropbox on the windows system.
