Amiga and MAMEDevs...

This news is a bit old now but thought I'd post it anyway

Quite of few of the MAMEDevs love the Amiga

Taken from The Guru's ROM Dump News website:

My friend's wife was very, very happy to see it all go, especially the big stack of software that he threw in for free. I wonder why?????? Everybody loves the Amiga right?:-D

The machine is/was a 4000/EC030, but inside is a GVP T-Rex II 68060/50 w/128MB RAM, A2386SX Bridgeboard, Ariadne II network card and a 2.5" 800MB IDE HDD. The monitor is an NEC Multi Sync II.

In front is a Quicknet 2000 network card and A2091 SCSI controller with 1GB Connor CFP1080S HDD.

I've been playing around for a few days and I now have it booting OS3.9 from a 4GB Compact Flash card via a CF-IDE adapter. Works pretty well!

I'm looking for a few Amiga-related things, like an RTG card (Picasso IV anyone?), A2320 Flicker Fixer, A4091 SCSI controller and other things.

If you have any fruity Amiga bits for sale, let me know :-)

There is also the Amiga Hardware dump status page now. Good to see someone caring about those, so they don't get lost and might be someday be emulated in WinUAE or MESS

A590/A2091 SCSI is probably the next hardware expansion I'll try to emulate in the future (another "pointless" thing but it is also quite popular SCSI adapter) Other possibility is A4000T SCSI. Everything else isn't too interesting.

You are confusing emulated and real hardware. It does not matter if you have real PCCARD/PCMCIA slot or not.

I can implement "HDF/HD as emulated CF card in emulated PCMCIA slot" but it really isn't needed because you can already mount any kind of memory device (usb stick, any memory card in card reader etc..) as a harddrive which is basically same thing, but only using different Amiga-side interface.

Anyway, it will be implemented someday

EDIT: if you mean non-memory card pcmcia devices like network cards etc.. direct hardware mapping is not possible. (not possible = possible but would very unreliable, unstable, would need hardware specific support etc..)
