  1. Return to the Amiga 1200 - My Journey - Part 3

    [QUOTE=RetroMatt;980169][U][I][B]#3) Initial Requirements & First Stage Mods[/B][/I][/U]

    Two posts in one day - well, there's been a lot going on..

    My Amiga is still in the same state it was previously - in bits awaiting return of the recapped motherboard & repaired keyboard.

    They say the devil makes work for idle hands and he's definitely made a dent in my bank balance. It's easy to get carried away with upgrades and mods. I'm trying to be sensible ...

  2. Return to the Amiga 1200 - My Journey - Part 2

    [QUOTE=RetroMatt;980134][B][U][I]Part #2: Recapping & Initial Repairs.

    [/I][/U][/B]We left my last post with me getting my new purchase home and showing pictures of it. Now, obviously the first thing I did was test it some more as soon as I walked through the door. Unfortunately the lack of software and disks available to me at the time prohibited me from doing as an extensive a test as I would like (eg. testing the Techno Turbo adapter)- so I set about checking what I could and ...

  3. Return to the Amiga 1200 - My Journey - Part 1

    [QUOTE=RetroMatt;980092]Hey folks.

    Not sure if this is the done thing, or the norm or anything like that - but, I wanted to keep a record of my journey back into the retro Amiga scene by creating a blog of sorts on what I'm up to with my newly acquired Amiga 1200.

    No doubt there will be some mess up's along the way and some questionable choices for mods but wanted to create something for posterity and this forum seemed the perfect place.

    So - without further ...

  5. Amiga 4000 Alice+ Build Day 4: GREX 4000 and Cyberstorm PPC

    Well as luck would have it, the Cyberstorm PPC finally cleared Canada Customs 2 days ago! So I set about the task of carefully putting it into the new Amiga 4000 with the Alice board from hese!

    Installation of the GREX 4000 is always a bit tricky. It is best to install the GREX already connected to the Cyberstorm PPC and press them down together at the same time, carefully making sure they remain connected.

    Once I had done that, I booted up the system and my existing ...
