Wanna get back to Amigaing

Hey guys.

Used to be an avid Amiga freak way back in the day. Fancy getting back into it again.

Anyway, what way would you go...

I've not got a lot of space so not toooo hot on the idea of getting in an A1200 and tv. I use my PC for music so would prefer not to clutter it up with amiga UAE stuff. I was considering getting in an xbox and creating an amiga cd to use with that.

Does anyone use winuaex? If so, good? Bad? Ugly?

I'm thinking mainly of having a crack at roadkill, roadrash, monkey island and alien breed again...

Jon

WinUAEX used to be a pain in the arse!

But I'm currently using the most recent one and it's superb!

Got a load of games running on it myself, all run perfectly (with the exception of Super Stardust > nasty glitches!)

If you get it from xbins it comes with all kickstart roms and everything but games!

You can use any old adfs, but I personally use hdf's as it means no disk swapping

I'd highly recommend WinUAEX.

JEEEZUS!

I just saw some site offering a blizzard 68060 50MHz.... 259!?!?

You're having a laugh, right!? Surely these expansion boards are cheaper these days as amiga (sorry if I offend) is basically defunct hardware...

At that price, I think I'll just stick to my original idea of playing turrican II and forgettting the likes of breathless and tower assault lol!

Still though, would be nice. My ami was only a 25mhz 040, didn't quite do the job with breathless...

Well that seems to be far too expensive for what it is, but Amiga stuff can still be darn expensive (far too much in fact) which is a shame, but it's unlikely to ever change.

Don't worry you didn't offend (at least not me anyway) I use my amiga solely for games (and now a little bit of programming). You don't need a decent spec Amiga to play 99% of the games for the system. Tower Assault runs fine on an a1200 with no accelerator needed, and breathless... well... FPS on the Amiga haven't really dated well It's just not worth the money upgrading the Amiga to play the handful of games that'll utitlise it!

Use WinUAE if you want to check out some of the higher-spec stuff... not that you'll be using if for long

I still say nothing beats an 1200 with an 030 and a hdd inside though

One hasn't ever enjoyed enough fun if one hasn't tried Lotus 2 with 2 Amigas hooked.
