I don't believe there is, sorry. But I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

Which Gotek displays/screens are suitable for new A1200 cases cutouts?
Are there different ones and any differences in quality?

Ordered a Goex floppy emulator from Centuriontech and would like to use it in my transparent case.

Need a little help please!
I'm trying to add a command to user start up to make workbench use long file names, I have put the command in the c: directory and added ''WBNameLength 102'' to user start up, it runs the command but stays locked on the window, could someone please tell me what to add to user start for it to run command then close window and continue booting up please?

Thanks for help with that ;-)
It fixed my problem with long filenames on the Workbench, but the files are still showing cut in Dopus 4, is there a way around that please?

From what I know DOpus 4.12 supports only up to 32 chars, I think. But there is a BETA version that supports very long filenames. But it's native support for XAD archives as directories is a bit broken, besides other things. Look at http://dopus.free.fr/download.php and download DOpus417pre21.lzx from the right corner of the page, if you would want to try it.

Good luck.

I was telling a friend of mine that I had a Video Toaster, so had the equipment on hand to deal with some old analog formats, and he wondered if I could transfer some 8mm videos for him.
Well, he said these videos were of a... nature.
So I was wondering if there are some plugins available for the VT4000 setup, that would do package removal?

Hey guys,

how easy is it to change the membrane in a Amiga 1200 keyboard? Can anyone do it or need pro?

I've always wanted to know how TFMX 7-voice modules actually accomplished what they did, from a technical perspective. How was this trickery done?

Chris Hülsbeck explained it a while ago:
4 voices were mixed together into one - 3 normal Paula voices remained.
This was done for quality reasons, to avoid degrading prominent voices by mixing.
and it was more efficient than the octamed routine.
