Some of Nova's ports such as ScummVM.

He has ported Quake II to AGA, what speed does the TF1260 run at? Would need 80mhz I think.

I also like his Ports or Doom/Quake and Duke3D, I run them all on my Vampire setup (the RTG versions as I have Vamp 500/no AGA)

+1 for NovaCoder's newer/ recently updated games which were compiled specifically for 060's would be awesome!

also would love to see it running with latest OS3.1.4 roms

There will always be people looking to make a quick buck and exploit the hard work of others.

Considering the fact the project was beneficial for the community, a crowd funding project may have been helpful to in someway mitigate the impact of this for TF.

I hope those fortunate to be in the friends circle don't breach his trust...

Anyway, I signed up for Vampire for my A1200.

Not the first time by the way... then he calms down and comes back, usually. Let's hope this is another of those times.

Yep it’s not the first time, and i’m sure it won’t be the last.

We don’t need a new thread every time someone threatens to the leave the Amiga scene though, or just create one giant ‘latest backstabbing Amiga rumours’ thread

The problem is, the ripped off design wasn't open source. The plan was to make it open source in February, but it wasn't at that point yet. It would appear that licencing the build of the TF1260 is the way it will happen, and it won't be released as open source a few months later, which is how the other boards became open source. Also looking less likely now that a TF4060 will happen (which was a long-term plan).

Absolute shame to be losing such an irreplaceable asset to the community.

Its always one butt hole muncher that seems to screw it up for everyone else.

....just thinking out aloud here, but are hitmen still a thing these days??

Just when open source was looking great, it seems we'll all be back to close source from now on

Bad timing too, being that i'm in the middle of building a couple 536's for myself (namely firmware).

Thanks for all you hard work and effort Mr. Leary. Good luck with all your future endeavours. Atari community will have a ball!! Maybe the 520/1040 STE will get some accelerator love too

Thousands of happy users and one idiot... It is childish to use this as reason, because you have always this one idiot.

According to a facebook post on the Amiga group, John Hertell convinced him in a zoom discussion to continue the project after all, although it will no longer be open sourced and only available through a small set of selected builders.
