SWAG Meeting Update!
I’d like to begin by thanking those who have already put their name down to attend the first of hopefully many SWAG meetings.
At present we have 7 people confirmed as coming – a number which means that it’s more than worth us going ahead with the session. Naturally, it’s a case of “the more the merrier”, so if you’d like to come then please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Since the initial “all systems go” email we’ve started planning the meeting content. Over the coming weeks we’ll be revealing further details as the date gets closer.
In the meantime...
We know the Amiga was and still is a much-loved gaming platform, and it’s because of this that we’re making sure there’s a good multiplayer element to our first meeting. The 4-player joystick/pad adapter has arrived, and we’ll be firing-up Dynablaster Bomberman and Gauntlet 2 for a mix of fight-to-the-death and co-op gaming. (If you can think of any other 4/5 player simultaneous Amiga games that would be suitable then please let us know!).
For the more technically minded we also hope to run a session on emulating an Amiga on your Raspberry Pi. This session will cover setting up your SD card so that your beloved Pi boots straight into the Amiga OS/Workbench from switch-on.
For those of you unable to make it along to the first SWAG meeting we hope to film parts of the session and take a load of photos. We’ll make these available as soon as after the event we can.
More updates to follow!
