INT7 Adapter

A new year and possibly many new projects that will be done and also new ideas that will take place. Last year was rather hysteric and this blog one one of many things that I had to put on my “to-do-list” (sadly). Anyway, I atill managed to finish many projects and only a few of ... Read More
 

CS/CVPPC 80mm Fan

The Amiga 4000T has quite a lot more room inside that a normal Amiga 4000D has. So why don’t take advantage of it and make a high effective solution for CVPPC / CSPPC cooling? After I had been thinking about this for a while started to draw a simple sketch where I made a fan-holder ... Read More
 

A4000T Fix

Finally I had time to write down the things I did to fix my new Escom Amiga 4000T. It was quite a while ago since I bought it but time hasn’t been to put it into a blog. Anyway, the overall shape of the A4000T was quite good. The case was a bit scratchy and ... Read More
 

Amiga Cap List

The fact that our beloved Commodore Amiga is getting older by the day, the risk of leaking capacitors also increse. Even if you cannot see any leakage, the damage can already be there. The latest Amiga 1200 that I re-capped had no visible damage at all. But when I removed C821 capacitor, it had leaked ... Read More
 

USB & FastRAM

I’ve been looking for a while at the RapidRoad USB expansion card for my X-Surf 100. It is always nice to be able to transfer larger files between my PC and Amiga, but also manage backups on a good way. Enough talking… I ordered a RapidRoad and while I was at it I also ordered ... Read More
 

Ratte Control Switch

It is over 6 months since I installed my Ratte Auto Monitor Switch (Ratte AMS from now) and I’m still as thrilled over the functionality as I was when I installed it. As I have said before, if you have more than one display port in your Amiga I really do recommend you to check ... Read More
 

Good Vs. Evil

Every time I had my Amiga 4000 offline without power for a while it lost both time and date settings. This is very frustrating and since I do like to modify my Amiga to the better I decided to change the current clock battery to the lithium coin cells that Amigakit sells. I ordered two of them ...

72MHz CSPPC

A few times I have red and been inspired by a page explaining how to increase the speed of a Phase 5 Cyberstorm PPC. It looked fairly simple and the instructions was really good so I thought why not and decided to do it while I did replace the capacitors. The Cyberstorm PPC (CSPPC) is ... Read More
 

Cap Work

This is project has been planned for a few months but I never had the time to do it due to work and training. While I was doing some with with my Amiga 4000D I found some suspicious capacitors that had to me removed and replaced with new healthy ones. This is a fairly hard ... Read More
 

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

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
 

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
