  1. AmigaOS 3.2

    Well time for a little catchup post. I decided that AmigaOS 3.2 would be my next investment and so ordered not only the CD but a set of ROMs as well. I decided to do a clean install and build this from scratch. It all went OK although it is still a bit barebones as it comes and installing various bits and bobs also required extra bits and bobs like MUI.
    Anyway... I suppose the key issues for me that have been resolved along the way relate to Music CD's. I use ADPlay to actually play them ...

  2. Checkmate Build (Part 6.6) CD Sound

    Well following on from the last two posts, the audio mixer that a.mi.goun so kindly made for me arrived today. It works great and was fitted in minutes. It allows me to not only combine the audio from the cdda output from the cd drive with the output from the RCA posts for the system sound, but balance the levels between the two. This is good as the cd audio is quite a bit softer. Now they are set roughly level so I don't have to mess around with the speaker volume.
    Fantastic and just ...

  3. Checkmate Build (Part 6.5) CD Sound

    Well as I cannot work out how to add pictures to my own comments, I have created a new post for the comparison pics of the 2 5.25 drives.
    The darker (LG) drive is a tight fit which is good as it holds itself in (as the screw fixings don't line up), the lighter drive is a bit looser and I will need to maybe apply some tape or something to help secure it. But its not like the Checkmate case get moved around a lot.

  4. Checkmate Build (Part 6) CD Sound

    Well my next project with this case is to get the CD Audio working properly. I can play music CDs using an app that reads the music from the data stream, but as I want it all, I want to use an app that can do that AND look up the CD details online. These apps it seems just get the cd drive to output audio over the analog connection. So at the moment I can either use two apps simultaneously or have either the online lookup or actually play music.

    So....to fix this I need two things ...

  5. Checkmate Build (Part 5)

    Well for Xmas I got a rapidroad USB for my checkmate. I got a couple of short USB extenders that did not have chunky female connectors, and took my dremel to my spare little additional front panel for the checkmate case.

    At first it was great, but then I realised that I could not refit the panel with the connectors in place as it would not fit back in and I did not want to modify the case panel itself. Luckily the little panel is reversible which while it doesn't give the same continued ...
