Datel amiga products

Does anyone have an old datel amiga products catalog/advert?

I can remember lots of cool stuff and always wanting the "credit card" swiper that could be used to look at the secret info on your cards! and there was also some kind of satalite tv de-coder as well.......

I still have some swedish catalogs from 92 and 93, but never saw that credit card reader, sounds like some strange German Amiga hardware.

It wasnt just in german mags .. I remember seeing it in mags over here in the UK. I'll try to find the AD but most (95%) my mags are stored in the attic.

Assuming Datel produced the Action Replay carts, I loved that thing on my first Amiga, the A500+.

Friend of mine bought the MKIII new, didn't know how to use it, and sold it on to me for a tenner.

The mods and screenshots I ripped from games at the time were awesome

Plus I used the load/save ram state to cheat in games like Shadow of the Beast - although this wasn't too reliable on all games.

Those things weren't cheap! I wish I knew people with more money than brains to be able to buy Amiga hardware from. I knew a person with an A590 hard drive but only ever played floppy disk games. When I offered to but it from him he said it made his A500 look more powerful so he wanted to keep it
The Action Replay MkIII was a great tool. I wished they would provide machine language monitors, etc as part of the Kickstart ROM as something that could interrupt the OS and resume without killing it. I think some of the early 8 bit machines had tools like that built-in.
