Phase5 BVision

Phase5 BVision

Holy! I have finally purchased a Blizzard Vision for my Blizzard PPC card. This card has not been a priority for me but now when I got the chance to buy one I took it. This is the, what I know about, only RTG cards for Amiga 1200 (correct me if I'm wrong). While I was at it
 
RGB to VGA

RGB to VGA

Recently I bought a new 5:4 BenQ BL702A TN LED monitor that has a rumor to support the 15KHz native Amiga horizontal frequency. Before that I bought a 24" IPS WideScreen Philips that also supported 15KHz but since Im not a big fan of black border I sold it to a friend instead.

Ratte Auto Switch

Ratte Auto Switch

I found a rather interesting project a few months ago where they made a monitor switch for the Amiga that could easily switch between Native (Indivision) and other RTG display adapter. The switching itself was done either via software in Amiga OS 3.x or via manual switch. This was just what I needed and lately ... Read More
 
15.6KHz TFT

15.6KHz TFT

I’ve been reading a lot about modern TFT monitors that are compatible with the “infamous” horizontal frequency of 15.6KHz that the native Amiga outputs. This has not been an easy task to find and most of the models are old and not sold anymore. A friend of mine told me about a Philips IPS TFT ... Read More
 
Reading the mouse

Reading the mouse

In my last project I needed to use some test-coordinates before I generated a sine curve. The easiest way to do such thing is to read the mouse and as many people know that is a fairly easy task in for example Basic or other high level languages. If you want to read the mouse ... Read More
 
A4000 Chillin

A4000 Chillin

I have had a smaller pause from my hardware project due to training and high load at work. There has been alot of coding in AsmOne but I have not finished the M68k code highlighter so I haven’t been able to publish any results yet. Anyhow, while I was coding I realized that my Amiga 4000 ... Read More
 
FPGA Arcade Case

FPGA Arcade Case

Since the minute after I purchased the FPGA Arcade from MikeJ I started to look for a mini-ITX case. This was actually harder that I imagined and the cased that I found was either too big or height was above 80mm, which is overkill for the Arcade. At lunch last Wednesday I browsed around and found ... Read More
 
Cooling Mod

Cooling Mod

A weekend where I had the chance to test and finish some of my ideas that I have been thinking of  for a longer time. Earlier I made a cutout on my damaged trapdoor on one of my A1200. The result was ok but far from good. Earlier I also bought a Phase 5 Blizzard ... Read More
 
FPGA Arcade

FPGA Arcade

It has finally arrived! At first I looked forward to the Natami to be released but since it was put on hold/cancelled I had to look for another FPGA-project. At Datastorm I started to talk to Mike that are the mastermind behind this neat peace of hardware and as we both had a few beers ... Read More
 
Indivision AGA MK2cr

Indivision AGA MK2cr

While I was at it I remembered that I did not have any ability to connect my Amiga 1200 with the new Phase5 Blizzard 1260 with SCSI-II to a normal CRT/TFT display. For me, the only solution is to use Jens S. amazing piece of hardware called “Indivision AGA MK2cr”. This neat little hardware makes ... Read More

One is the newly re-made album by Allister Brimble and the other is a mix between different artists.   The AMIGA Works – Allister ... Read More
