Both great games, but I'm going to go with Lotus 2 because the framerate on Stunt Car Racer is pathetic.

Post it horizontally flipped if possible, it'll make the top side of the board much easier to use as a reference.

I am not saying that the A1200 (or even 500) couldn't do a good conversion. But it would never be up to CPS1 standard.

The original console, yes. I think he's saying that the NES Mini has a more powerful CPU than a Neo Geo Mini. No idea why that would be the case.

Rubbish. Back then, Windows was nothing but a GUI which runs on top of DOS.

Think of it like an Amiga. AmigaDOS is the operating system, Workbench runs on top of it.

Why use that and limit yourself to a fraction of the Amiga music library?

In my opinion, most of the best music isn't even in MOD format. It's in formats like Future Composer and SIDmon.
