Hello there

Well hello there, I am trying to relive my Amiga days.
I used spend endless days coding in Amos, playing Scorched Tanks, Chaos engine and trying to take over the world

I still have my old A1200, 4mb expansion, and 500mb overdrive. Oh and I have a CF card thing onway

I am thinking of buying some bits like more memory, lan card, VGA connector etc. Was very surprised at the costs of some of the card on there.

I also tried out Amiga forever, and some emulators, for me it feels better to use the machine.

Being back on the scene, would anyone recommend anything?

I saw this app that connects to Aminet and lets you download from there (guessing its ftp), that would be cool to get on my amiga.

Hi Burf2000!

I would say welcome to the board but as you might have noticed I only just signed up here too (see post below yours on index)!

Yes some parts are expensive, I put this down to supply and demand- the Amiga market is smaller than say the PC market so naturally margins on products need to be higher - I guess..

Regarding things to think about for your 1200 - I have been pondering the same thing too, have a look at my recent pFost in the hardware forum for some ideas. You might want to think about a scan doubler so you can connect to any tv/monitor, assuming you don't have a monitor/LCD that can do 15khz.
