Hi Nova,

Thanks for all the great ports you did. Before you say goodbye I hope you will dump all your stuff on Aminet.

What a loss - your ports were one of the best over the last years. Thank you for your hard work and the support for the Amiga.

Joder! (spanish) mate, you are making such a great work with ScummVM !

Thanks a lot for developing this last -marvellous- update and luck with whatever you'll be working after this on.

This will be my last Amiga release, I'm selling all of my Amiga gear and moving onto other things...it's been a fun few years and I've managed to do most of the things I wanted to accomplish
Devastated!

I really look forward to your ports, they're second to none.
Good luck for the future mate

@novacoder
What are your "new" plans or projects and why do you sell all your Amiga gear?

Nova, sorry to hear that you're moving on. But what a legacy you're leaving behind you!! Your releases over the past few years have been nothing short of incredible and you've given a lot of people a hell of a lot of enjoyment which will continue for years to come.

I'm lucky enough to have an overclocked 060, so personal highlights would have to be running your Quake and Quake 2 ports, the various Doom ports, AmiDuke and of course ScummVm! AmiWolf, ScummVm and Doom were also accessible to 020/030 amiga, so everyone got a taste!

The hard work you did on DosBoxAGA was very impressive, and I don't think it's the last we'll see of it, what with new hardware developments on the horizon, well hopefully anyway!

So best of luck with your next projects, it's been a blast (literally)!!

And thank you!!!

At least stay visiting this forum and keep WinUAE installed for whatever. You've got a friend -and also a biker - here, you know.

Question: About the Prisma Megamix, do you think it also could be added/used somehow with ScummVM? I mean the same way that a Roland can relieve the CPU use. (Excuse my ignorance).

I tend to rotate my computers and consoles, so it stops any of them becoming stale.
Currently using my X68000, but gonna get the old miggy back out since Nova's latest ScummVM release. He's the only coder that seems to push a fast 060 system to the limits.

Put it away in the cupboard mate and I guarantee you will come back to it at some point. You'll regret selling!!

Thanks for your hard work, nova.

Aren't you tempted by prospects of FPGA for 1200?

Ill ask again because nobody replied: can I use an external MIDI module with this latest version of ScummVM, connected to my Amiga via a MIDI interface?

Yes of course

That's what this video shows -> [ Show youtube player ]

You can see my awesome little Roland box used as a monitor stand in the video

MT-32 is also supported

I hope to finished putting a release together over the weekend which I'll upload to AmiNet next week.

Small tip from me for people wanting a MIDI module really badly after Novacoder releasing the doom clone and Scummvm. The Roland modules are often very expensive and in demand. The Yamaha modules seem to be cheaper (on your local trading websites). I myself have a Yamaha MU 80 which cost 30 euro. The Mu80 can emulate the Roland sound and has Yamaha XG Midi capabilty which can sound awesome when playing XG compatible midi files (on your Amiga).

Have you any links for one at that price?

Bought it on a local dutch trading site. You probably also have those in the UK. I just checked and one is up for sale for 50 euro but nobody seems interested. But it is a local site. I often seem to find those there for prices much lower then the Roland ones.

I am looking forward to trying ScummVM with MIDI on my 030. I am very glad to hear that Novacoder has finally been able/had the time to implement this, and very sad to read of him moving on from the Amiga.

It might be okay for General MIDI, but I can assure you that no sound card of the time (except those made by Roland itself, and even so, they don't quite nail it perfectly) can simulate an MT-32 properly.

So if you're looking for the real MT-32 experience, it HAS to be either an MT-32 or a LAPC-I (if you're okay with mortgaging your house for an old sound-card )
