Re: Oldschool Amiga Quiz... no prizes, but fun....

This might give you some clues... (and yes that is me 19 years old when doing this). For reference I am 45 today.

Oldschool Amiga Quiz... no prizes, but fun....
Just popping in
Just popping in


Here is a little quiz for you guys... just for the fun and giggles. 😄

Back in these days I used an Amiga 1200 with an M-Tech 030/28MHz with 8MB of fast ram. I used my own Amiga A1200 to create an info-channel for the students (age 13-15). It was a single TV hanging about 2 meters from the ground level that displayed my Scala MM 300 scripts. But I noticed that as soon as I got information from the school that a lecture was canceled, I had to actually go into the big room where the TV was hanging (where all the students were), turn of the TV, go back in, add in the information needed, go back out, turn on the TV (because I did not want to show off the magic behind the scenes).

So... that is where the A500 came into place. With ParNET (yes this was a thing back then for Amigas), you could connect to another Amiga via Parallel port to access files. In this way, I could live-edit the Scala script without interrupting the stream.

Problem solved.

Now to the setup of the question...... I connected the video port from my A500 to the monitor, and used the Composite output from my A1200 to the same monitor (so I could switch inputs of what I needed to see) and used an A500 RF Modulator on the video port on the A1200 that displayed the Info-channel on to the TV in the big room that the students watched.

QUESTION....

Why didn't I use the internal RF modulator on the Amiga 1200? It worked but it lacked one feature that the RF Modulator from the A500 solved...

What feature might that be?

I use the DOpus5 port for file managing and for FTP stuff. The reason for that is quite simple... I use it on Windows as well. I have tried Filer but it is so confusing I just gave up on it.

I am the one that asked for some sort of timer of how long a process takes. Yes, I am Mikael mentioned in the blog!

And yes, I agree that feature requests from users can be a bad thing. I love Rave and want it to become better and better. Now that I have established a good dialogue with Trixie on Discord, I will honor that. He is a great guy!

My history also includes beta-testing and feature-requesting things for LightWave 3D between 2008-2020. Only one or two of my feature requests got implemented. But there were plenty of beta-testers as well. :)

Re: Old AmigaOS 4 versions and new software

One approach is to develop for the latest libs etc and make sure that is stable, and then, if you have time, make a version for these "special" users.

If it is going to make things more complicated, I think there no reason not to ask for some money because they ask for something you initially didn't intend to support.

I am not a coder but my 16+ years in the PC/Console games industry, I do have a fair knowledge about developement and there is a reason Coders have the highest salaries compared to regular artists like myself. :)

This are very good news!

Will Hyperion put up Heretic II for purchase on their website when this is done? Right now there is no way to buy Heretic II, unless your updates will allow me to purchase it from GoG or Steam and move the data files over to my Amiga X5000.

I got the game from the original site and also donated $10. I hope you will not stop developing for the Amiga.

@TiredOfLife

Cool!

However, I can buy Freespace, Shogo and Gorky 17 from their website.... (Freespace - The Great War - Purchased and working, Gorky 17 - Purchased and working)... There is no listing of Heretic II in a way to buy it though. :(

EDIT: I used to play this title with my A1200 with PPC 603e@200Mhz and Voodoo 3 3000. When I got rid of my A1200T (BIG MISSTAKE BTW), I never sent any software with it. I might still have this game somewhere boxed because I bought it back in those days. For example... I did dig up my original MakeCD boxed version not that long ago.

That said, it would be nice to be able to buy this title as a downloadable product just like Freespace, Shogo and Gorky 17.

I would pay for a working AOS 4x port. Even if I have to pay the people porting as well as buying the data files etc from GOG or similar.

I have to ask...

Are there any PCI based GFX cards that supports gpu acceleration for video playback?

If there are, it might be a good idea to get one of those cards and upgrade the drivers as well as buy Emotion mediaplayer?

My A1X5000 is using about 1-3% CPU when playing full HD videos since the decoding is all done on the gfx-card.

@rjd324

First of all I just want to clarify that I do not test Doom 3.... that said...

One thing you did not list is what your Power setting is for your GPU?

If you go into Prefs and open the Power Management, make sure your GPU is set to High Power. I picked that little trick up from one of those Star Wars Jedi Outcast / Jedi Academy threads.

Re: OBS And AmigaOne / AmigaOS4

I have not tried that one with my X5000. I have successfully used it with my Vampire V4-SA.

The main problem with this one is that it doesn't have a pass-through. Which forces you to watch your PC/Laptop screen when doing things which will be with a lag.

For my X5000 and OS4.1 FE I have one of those Elgato PCIe cards in my PC workstation that can capture 1080p in 60fps. And while it will limit the capture to certain resolutions, it works very well. It has a pass-through as well so you can record interactive stuff without having to watch your PC/Laptop screen, and thus, you will not experience any lag.
