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.

Some Amiga Classic news

Okay, so this isn’t going to become a news site but occasionally, when many things happen at once that are interesting, I’ll comment. This is classic-side news:

Vampire 600

  • The fastest Amiga 68k accelerator is almost ready, and it’s only for the Amiga 600 at the moment. The Vampire 600, designed by Majasta, is prepping for the Phoenix core, a shrunken version of the Apollo core which will provide 68000 level instruction set at 100MIPs, faster than most Amigas even with 68060’s.

    Kipper2K has taken over production for now. Price is $125 USD.

    MUI

  • After 20+ years, MUI for AmigaOS3.x/68k users is getting bumped from 3.8 to 3.9. I believe release 3 of MUI3.9 was just released. Check out their website.
  • Over at Amigans.net, danbeaver just posted how to get an Amiga printer to work with USB printers. This looks handy!
  • A British group is selling the Cyclone RX adapter, which allows the Amiga to use Playstation controllers (most likely PS1). They are selling on ebay it appears.
  • And finally, there is a side scrolling game released for both Amiga and CD32 consoles using the Backbone game dev system (free on Aminet). The CD32 ISO and LHA files are downloadable.
