Adding all kinds of stuff to the LGR Commodore A1200 build! Indivision AGA MK2cr, PCMCIA Compact Flash, 15-pin PC joystick support, swapping the mouse ball for laser, upgrading the Kickstart ROM, along with plenty of little tweaks and fixes.

  • The PCMCIA issue is fixed! Turns out the memory expansion's RAM was conflicting, so I needed to move a jumper from 8MB down to 5.5MB. Not an ideal solution, but I've ordered another board that won't cause issues. Also, I got some custom PCI brackets for the DVI and USB ports! Here's a video on my other channel: plworld.info/show/n3J8d8u-jYbfZLQ/wideo.html

    • @Max Smarts Yep switching to NTSC was an easy way for a speed boost in many games. Until I got my 030 @50Mhz it was a noticeable jump when playing almost any 3D game.

  • Lol - at 19 minute, this is how average PC user is surprised how easy it was to fix that libs missing. He still can't believe he fixed it, so he had to restart Workbench. Only Amiga makes is possible! :) Great vid - by the way. :)

  • I'd use the internal PCMCIA as a permanent "hard drive" and use the optical drive for easy file transfer, no PCMCIA CF adapter sticking out the side, waiting to be knocked out by things like that LGR mug and whatnot right in the middle of loading something.

  • Hmm beige

  • Amiga was such a nice Computer-System (for me especially my A500 Plus) but always wanted to have a 1200 back in the days. Of course more and more during the 90s Amiga became obsolet.. Even so.. there is a certain charme a certain style that stands for Amiga..

  • Hey, LGR -- a thought occurs... Some yrs ago the video card industry was coming out w/ video cards that only had a single DVI port 4 the signal output (no HDMI port, no old-school VGA DB15), & also came w/ an alternate backplate 4 the newer ultra-slim form factor cases. Step 1: Get an old DVI-only graphics card w/ both backplates included (preferrably 4 free or really cheap) Step 2: Assuming that the full-size backplate is still on the video card, swap that 1 out 4 the ultra-slim backplate Step 3: Use the now-unused full-size backplate 2 attach your DVI input port 2 the Amiga case back panel Step 4: Rejoice

  • Yes, you should go for a faceplate on the back, 3D printed for the DVI and USB port(s). Is there no shorter PCMIA card where the CF fits into ? Or maybe get an expansion card for in the back ? Maybe it's overkill an ODD in the checkmate, but to keep it more divers it may be an option... You don't have to use it, do you ?!

  • Look, man-dude. I'm not really some tech guy, but seeing Test Drive on Amiga... My first computer was actually Amiga, and, not that I could make an interesting tech video out of it, bringing personal computers to Soviet Union was illegal, at least I gather this from what my aunt has told me. So me playing Test Drive, and some other games, was piracy on a whole another level. There was also a flying game I would enjoy seeing you review, but I don't remember the name. I could describe some details, but I don't know how much they would help.

  • if you have a dremel and small files (the tool) you can modify the PCI slot cover to have both DVI and USB. when i make a case mod i print the layout and then cut out the holes and sharpie the spots theat need to be cut and drilled. if thats not a option, look at ebay and aliexpress. there are tons of odd things there. im 99% positive someone is sellign a USB/DVI PCI cover. (i have seen a mini-b to micro- b USB cable on aliexpress before.)

  • Are there any patches available for Amiga games to use analog joysticks? [in analog mode]. And that's assuming analog could be read through the DB9s with that DB15 PC Game Port Adapter involved. I know it was a crime that such patches weren't available for the Atari STe and Falcon030 considering their Enhanced Joystick Ports - the ones that went on to be used by the Jaguar - supported analog and digital controllers but almost none of the games ever supported those ports or their extra functionality. Edit: I should've kept watching to see Gunship 2000 has analog joystick support built-in. That's awesome. But the patching question for other games still remains...

It has a 030 @ 50 mhz, a 68882 up to 50 mhz, can be expanded up to 128 megs of ram and has the option for a SCSI-expansion, which also grants another 128 megs of RAM.That thing is way faster then the cheap 8 meg + FPU expansion.

I'm gonna get one of those, too. 30€ isn't that much, other mice on ebay cost a lot more (sometimes they offer them for 70€, wth?), and my tank mouse does have some issues as well, sometimes it won't move downwards, which is really annoying. EDIT: And what a coincidence, I just tried out Gunship 2000 yesterday. Only the OCS version, though. ;) Too bad it won't start properly from the hard drive, the graphics get all messed up.
