Thumbs up Legends Never Die!!!

Hello All

SimonCD32 here and a truly momentous day that I have joined you!

I, like most here I suspect, have reached the point in my life where I am desperately attempting to relive my childhood and part of that is owning an Amiga again.

Back in the day I spent many an hour fascinated by my A500+ and my fantastic collection of games. Having sold the lot for two pounds fifty at a carboot sale and never looked back I now have an appetite to relive those good times!

So I've brought myself a CD32 and am about to acquire the disk drive to accompany it.

I'm surprised/delighted to see that there are so many others propping the scene up and cant wait to mingle with you all and find out more.

I had a good bash on SWOS last night and also have a games disk with a version of flappy birds for the CD32 on there and I spent far too long playing that as well.

I'm equally as interested to replay the games of my youth as I am to discovering new software/games that I can download from the net and play on my console. I just need to get my head around the whole ISO thing and burning images as I've not done that before (If anyone can point me to an idiots guide that would be much appreciated!)

That's all for now... off to find some more threads to post in

Welcome SimonCD32,

Good time indeed to join, as the CD32 is actually getting quite some love at the moment, with some new hardware being built for it:

Personally I wouldn't bother with an Analogic disc drive. They are very over priced for what they are.

If I was you read up on WHDLoad

Buy / Make a Terrible Fire TF328
Buy / Make a suitable riser card.
Install something like ClassicWB on to a cheap 4 or 8GB Compact Flash card, copy the WHDLoad files over to the Compact Flash card and have pretty much (almost) every Amiga game on there.

Welcome SimonCD32!

I have never own a CD32 but I remember going into Dixons and playing Guardians for as long as could before being kicked out.

A good program I use for burning ISO's is AnyBurn http://www.anyburn.com/
Easy to use.

Also recommend checking out the EAB FTP Server:

It has alot of CD32 iso in /Commodore_Amiga/CD/CD32

Plasmab has two TF328's available if you are quick to get one.

I will have some of Kipper2k's riser boards for sale later this week hopefully.
They allow you to use a PC Keyboard on your CD32 and also has a DB23 connector to allow you to use an RGB / Scart cable on your CD32.
