What a pathetic waste of money and energy this all is. The Amiga IP hasn't had any value for two decades.

No on my 060 A4000 it just crashes upon start running from HD. It used to run on the stock 030 with some graphical glitches, and no way to quit. I think it would really benefit from an installer.

Absolutely. I paid £15 for Thimbleweed Park and would happily pay a similar amount for a good native Amiga game.

This may be the problem - I do not have the external board. However the person that sold it to me included a terminator (the one I'm using) which should apparently do the same job.
