Hi, I recently became an Amiga 1200 owner, and am interested in what I can do with this machine.

My favourite game at the moment is Syndicate.

I had previously owned 'that other brand' of 16-bit computer, but the higher spec machines are almost impossible to get hold of.

Hope to share my experiences and acquire knowledge through this board.

Regards

Welcome to EAB!

Always interesting when we get a completely new Amiga owner join us - it's a lot of fun discovering things even if it can drive you a bit mad sometimes

Discovering the Miggy can be quite fun Leytond can tell you a story about it for sure From throwing his A1200 out of the window to playing MP3's on it ( [ Show youtube player ]), it all happened here You came to the right place and we all hope you enjoy your stay.

Yep! Good job Leytond, keep those vid's coming, we wanna see more

Actually, once he got his head round the way the miggy worked, he didn't do such a bad job. Now, I want to see a vid when things go wrong and he start to curse and threaten every computer related object around him That one will surely win the YouTube award of tempers

EDIT: This all has to do with the learning curve of understanding the miggy, so I'm not OT or spamming GH

Welcome Leehaken! Enjoy a pleasant stay here.

I like your quote. Very thoughtful of you... 'that other brand'

Hi leehanken, and welcome to EAB!

Don't worry, mate. You've come to the right place to learn how to be master of your new machine (and not the other way around ).
