I often wonder where Hollywood finds its tech consultants as they often make mistakes like these simple ones. For instance, I recently saw a court drama (Shark, maybe) that had address along the lines of 324.198.101.454.6008! Yes, that's right. Five octets and three of them greater than 255!

Everybody knows this is from the little known and super-secret DOD IPv3.14 Protocol

Not that I want to state the obvious but the A1200 didn't appear until 1992....

Now I'm not going to say that they wouldn't have been able to run their "game" on a 1987 Amiga or that a 1987 game couldnt be run on a 1992 system BUT, it slightly misleads insofar as the A1200 and its associated innards/tech weren't around in 1987.....

boo!

Probably the only Amiga they had
Still, they say it's an "Commodore Amiga with the Motorola 6800 chipset", plus A LOT MORE stupid things, so you should really recheck the vid me friend

100FPS textured 3D graphics, but no money for a sound chip. Listen the crappy Pole Position-like 4-bit jingle!
Amazing compression techniques too, fitting in a 5.25 floppy. Those democoders know what they do!

Well lets list things I see (and hear) in this clip.

Motorola *6800* CPU.
A1200 being used as a "KEYBOARD" for an XT.
5.25in floppy.
The musical tones were used in Bruce Willis flick Hudson Hawk in the musical hand cuffs.
Game door opening sounds came from Doom.
They mention that Doom came out in 1993 (Correct).

The IBM 5150 was necessary to clip the LCD monitor, and as a decorative object, its always a nice paperweight.

I haven't seen the clip yet, but ...

The 6800 CPU is very real device, released as a response to Intels 8080. Both are 8 bit devices.

When those things were used in actual computers they often used 5.25" disk drives for storage (as opposed to smaller microcontroller like systems where external storage is of next to no concern)...

So I think that in this case it must have been a case of poor research or mangling of such into a nice little mess
