My new toy :D

Although this machine is not an Amiga, I consider it to be Amiga-related & I'm excited to have received my new toy in the post today:





Efika running MorphOS 2.1

Yeah, I know loads of people have them, but again, I'm, excited about my new toy

Looking forward to testing further...& further...& further!

Hmm, now to make/butcher a case...but can I afford another Pico PSU...maybe just go a Micro ATX case...can use 5&1/4" DVD drives then!

Nice, but you should get it some home...
There's a pretty big community around this piece of hardware here, seen some pretty cases on the last Amizaduszki 2008 meself, and a few articles here, here and there on how to make your own.

Hey Fingerlickin_B is that a sub you have on the background?

You should leave the room with a new hair style every day!

Nice rig by the way.

If it is - imagine the magnet in that! Floppy disks will go flying through the air and get stuck to the thing!

Plus all that nice equipment dancing around on the table to the beat!

Wow - if that is a sub - that is one big m/fker to have near your computers. I'm surprised your hard disks don't de-magnetize.

As for your new toy - it looks great. I never get tired of that little kid feeling when a new bit of kit arrives and I'm setting it up. I'm sure you feel the same about your Efika.

Fingerlickin_B: congratulations ! I got the same one, it works great with MorphOS

About your case problem, you may get in touch with Tcheko who made the EfikaZ case. I've got one and it's just great

EfikaZ looks nice indeed, but after conversion from Euros to AUD & then adding shipping...far too costly

Another solution, hacking this case: http://www.eyo.com.au/prod_G-3988-80...iser_card.html

This would have probably saved you from making a case:

You cannot purchase that case seperately & I got the Efika gear-for-gear through a trade.

I could not afford $375USD + shipping anyway.

Hiya Zetro!

The MorphOS-team website says the OS includes: "a high-performance Just-in-Time compiler that emulates the 68k family of processors and thereby allows to transparently execute legacy applications developed for the Commodore Ax00 series of computers."

I've been told however, that games which "bang hardware" don't work, but as for which games "bang" & which ones don't...although I don't even know what that means...most games "bang hardware" I assume?

OooOOo

now i need to have one of these to play with

Banging the Hardware, basically means Really Tight assembly that jumps all of the face of Custom Chip Registers to eek that extra speed out of them.

Instead of using software libraries to access chipset they instead bang the metal as it were using direct ASM commands.

as to which games, I fear there would be a few I am sure
