Fire up your 68060 accelerators, get your pitchforks, because the first (but not the last) release of Monolith's 1997 FPS Blood is now available on Aminet:

Previous discussion / development thread:

I won't link any of the old videos as the performance has improved a lot since, and hopefully this trend will continue.

Amiga in a RaspBerry Pi4 4Go
Posted by papiosaur - 16 September 2021 20:12
Hello all,

i propose on my new store a small ventilated box containing a RaspBerry Pi4B 4GB allowing to emulate an Amiga with a 68040 with 1GB of Fast memory. No need to connect a graphics card to have a resolution up to 1920*1024 in 16bits, no need for a network card to have internet with trasfert rate up to 1000Mbits/s. Compatible wireless keyboard, mouse and controller are also available in the store. If you buy AmigaOS 3.2 with the full package, you have a turnkey system that starts directly in the Workbench. You just have to press Power button. Is it possible to have a configuration without AmigaOS 3.2 and dedicated exclusively for Amiga 500, 1200, CD32 and CDTV games.

Don't hesitate to ask your questions.

Mechanical keyboards from RastPort
Posted by Krashan - 16 September 2021 19:11
I'm the owner of one-man RastPort business. I've seen that my mechanical keyboard KA59 has been mentioned in some other thread. As I don't want to hijack thread of competing product, let's talk about it here.

KA59 is simply a drop-in mechanical replacement of original A1200 keyboard. The project is now at manufacturing stage, however some minor improvements are still introduced. I have decided to finance the project on my own, without paid preorders or crowdfunding and it worked. 8 keyboards have been sold already, and the queue of interested people is 30.

As you may guess, keyboards are hand-assembled so it takes time. On the other hand it allows for high level of customization: keycap color set, kind of switches and language layout may be selected by customer.

Photos of KA59 and informations about the project can be found on RastPort's Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Product page on RastPort website will be up this year.

In the next year I plan to design KA56 – mechanical keyboard for Amiga 600, using the same technology.

Xvs.library v33.44 released by Georg Wittmann
Posted by Jan-VHT - 13 September 2021 17:55
Jan-VHT's Avatar  The xvs.library contains all virus recognitions and disinfection code that
was formerly included inside VirusZ. This step has been taken for one major
reason: VirusZ, Virus_Checker, Virus_Executor and all the other antivirus
software can be updated quickly without releasing the whole packages every time a new virus appears.

So simply install the xvs.library from this archive to your LIBS: drawer to
get 100% protection against the latest viruses.

To be able to check if the library in this archive really came straight from
the author, you can use my public key with the .sig files in the archive.
If you are not sure or do not trust the included key, then you can always request an original copy straight from me (by email, see below) or get it from the VHT-Denmark homepage -

Currently I (Georg Wittmann) am developing the xvs.library package alone
again, so for any bug reports, comments or new ideas just contact me at the following e-mail address:

xvs.library 33.44 (size: 62.684 bytes)
- Not a new author, just a new name: After marriage some years ago, my family name is no longer Hörmann, but Wittmann.
- Added recognition for AROS systems and enhanced recognition for AmigaOS 4.x in library startup code.
- Again reviewed the complete xvsSurveyMemory() code for possible AmigaOS 4.x, AROS and MorphOS problems and fixed them all, no more accesses to protected memory areas or invalid structures.

Tsunami 1230 - New accelerator card for A1200
Posted by Estrayk - 29 August 2021 22:35
Estrayk's Avatar  Miguel Fides, (the creator of the Amiga A1100 motherboard), together with Edu Arana, has developed a new accelerator for Amiga A1200 computers called Tsunami 1230.

Our main idea was to make a low cost accelerator with a performance similar to what was once a standard, the famous blizzard 1230.

As part of the team, I personally have tested hundreds and hundreds of demos and games to make it as compatible as possible. Especially having a lot of interest in the speed of the access to the chip memory.


- 68EC030 at 42MHZ.
- 64MB Fast RAM.
- 68882 FPU footprint ready
- External expansion port for future upgrades
- Clockport port (RTC only)

Three weeks ago, we decided to make a call to the community asking about the interest of this product. We received hundreds of emails showing interest, so we started to work. We decided to make a first small batch of 50 units in preorder to really see the reality of interest.

To our surprise, all cards were sold within 24 hours.

ok, we have already given the order and paid to manufacture all the preorder units and we hope that in a couple of months, all the people who have placed his order will have their Tsunami at home.
(The person in charge of all the logistics is Edu Arana)

Obviously, we continue to receive many emails showing interest and I would like to officially announce that seeing the great and rapid acceptance of this product, we will do a second batch shortly. Stay tuned for this thread.

We have ordered a few more units from the factory, because some Amiga hardware stores were quick to contact us with large orders.
So contact your Amiga's usual store if you cannot wait for the second batch as they will receive some units from the first batch.

I will announce here, is this thread when the preorder for the second batch will be available

Anyway, if anyone has any questions about the accelerator, this is the official thread to do so.

The Tsunami team.
Miguel Fides, Edu Arana and Carlos Del Alamo.

The Ambermoon remake has been released. It works on Windows/Linux/MacOS and is open source if you want to port it to another platform.

Part of the release is a new set of patched files for English and German which are backwards compatible with the Amiga version.

Congratulations to Pyrdacor for recreating this great game and bring it to another generation.

Here is a list of all the bugs which have been fixed. As well as these, lots of spelling mistakes in the German version have been fixed.

Personal computing on an Amiga in 2021
Posted by stevelord - 05 August 2021 16:24
stevelord's Avatar  I recently took part in Solène's old computing challenge and wrote up my experience more or less exclusively using an Amiga for personal computing. In hindsight, upgrading hardware and installing a brand new OS from scratch wasn't the best starting point but it all worked out in the end.

Along the way I took the time to look at things I really love about Amiga OS, some of the extras I installed and included links to plenty of tutorials for people looking to create with their Amigas, physical or virtual. It was a proper labour of love for me to write, so I hope you enjoy it.
