How did you verify they were still good? If it wasn't with an ESR meter, then it was a completely pointless test :)

The Neo Geo hardware is a million times more powerful than the Amiga. I doubt the Amiga could even produce a decent conversion of the GBA version.

In Australia, we also had Sky Channel. But it was a channel dedicated to horse racing, commonly seen at pubs. A few of these pubs were actually caught pirating Sky Channel by using dodgy cards!

The answer is zero. Playing games from disk/ADF sucks. Most of the issues pointed out in this thread would have been fixed by now if a mantis report had been made.

I wouldn't bother, they don't deserve to be recapped. I suggest disassembling an ATX PSU and put the components inside the original CBM PSU case. Using a Meanwell could also be another option.

Irrelevant as in 1994 most people still had a 500. A 486 CPU would have emulated this perfectly, as well as paved the way for cheap, powerful Amigas in the future.
