I remember the arcade version of Operation Thunderbolt and its excellent intro. Pity it wasn't used in the Amiga version.

For a long time I thought it was, I was pissed when I saw the game appear on other platforms. Mario and Sonic would NEVER let that happen to them!

Could an A500 do Sonic? I believe it can. I never played any Mega Drive games at all, but I did try Mario once on an NES, but didn't like the basic gameplay.

Did you configure the PrtSc key for Right Amiga yourself? Isn't there another key you could use?

HAM is AWESOME! Have you ever seen high-end HAM8 demos? They're easily the best of any on Amiga!

Sure, the HAM8 mode may just be a framebuffer with c2p used, and the resolution may be blocky, but...

That's not really fair to the Amiga, as many early Pentium PCs with insanely high VESA graphics modes ran just as slowly. Heck, my 486 DX2/66 ran Quake very much like this, a slideshow.
