Re: INDIEGO! App Store for AmigaOS3.x/4.x first glimpse
Just popping in

@phoenixkonsole

I think this is great, however I wish we had a single AppStore (there is the AmiStore also).

As a user I would prefer a single app store for all compatible platforms (OS4/MorphOS/AROS/Classic).

Re: POLL: What graphics card(s) do you currently use on AmigaOS 4.x?
Just popping in
Just popping in


In my Classics (on AmigaOS 4.1 Classic) I use a CyberVision PPC and Radeon 9250. Sometimes Voodoo 3/4 when testing also.

On my X1000 I use a RadeonHD 6850. I have an X1950 as well but wasn't able to get that to work on the X1000.

On my MicroA1 I use the onboard video (Radeon 7000) and a 9250 in the PCI slot (that is beta testing machine).

On my Peg-2 I used a Radeon 9000, but my Peg-2 has a broken CPU card currently.

I also have a GVP Spectrum, Merlin, and Picasso IV, but I just use those under OS 3.x or just quick testing for AmigaOS 4.1 Classic install to ensure they still work :)

@yescop

Thanks that fixed the startup...downloads still not starting though even though the download window pops up (eg. if I try to download something from OS4depot.net).

@kas1e

Hey kase1e, sorry if this has been answered before, but when I start Odessy, it says "please insert volume RANDOM:" in any drive, then it makes me assign it to something...why is that?

Also, downloads don't work at all on my system (X1000 with Update 6). When I go to download something from Odessy the download window pops up but nothing actually downloads!?

Thanks for your work on the browser :) Much appreciated!

@kas1e

Thanks for the Oddessy port. I just wanted to let you know that I've had a fair amount of freezes and also a GR while trying to save prefs. I'm using A4000's (so very low memory situations), but usually I still have enough memory but Odessy freezes enough that it is really not usable unfortunately. If I get the GR again during a preferences save I'll send it to you...with the freezes there is no crash per-say, but the mouse pointer is frozen and I have to reboot. I'll also check on serial to see if anything comes up.

Well, there are people using AmigaOS 4.x with blizzard PPC cards, which max out at 240 MHz. While clock speed isn't directly related to processing power (the CPU's design also plays a big role), I'm pretty sure that a 240 MHz 603e is slower than the much newer MPC5121e at 400 MHz. You might want to ask some classic AmigaOS 4.x users what usability is like on their classic machines.

Hans


Usability is fine on Blizzard/Cyberstorm PPC for the OS itself. It's the larger apps like timberwolf, blender and most ported games that suffer from the lack of horse power and memory (especially on Cyberstorm with a max of 128MB ram, half of which is consumed just to boot the OS). Otherwise smaller normal apps and even IBrowse is fine. Natively compiled apps tend to work better.

I've finally moved to a modern website for HD-Zone. It's my Amiga Blog site that has information on:

-AmigaOS 4.1 Classic
-Classic Amiga Hardware including 060
-NG Amiga Hardware (coming)
-Amithlon (coming)

Lots of new AmigaOS 4.1 Classic content on there. The older content will quickly come back online and in updated form.

Take a visit: http://www.hd-zone.com

thanks for looking! :)

@Chris

The recommended specs are listed in the Install Guide (included) and also a comprehensive hardware FAQ is on the CD.

But basically it's Blizzard PPC or Cyberstorm PPC with at least 128MB memory, although it will run with less.

Also a graphics card is highly recommended.

The optimal configuration is with a Mediator, Prometheus, or Firestorm and either a Radeon, CyberVision/BlizzardVision, or Voodoo. But also other graphic cards are supported like Picasso IV, Merlin, Spectrum, etc...

A4000 users would benefit from a ZorRAM or DKB 3128 or swap partition.

There is also PCI SATA controller support which we forgot to put on the Press Release :)

@Mrodfr

It means that it's probably as fast as you can get for a memory interface for that CPU.

It has a minimum number of "wait states" for the cpu to wait while it accesses memory.

The entire focus of this accelerator was to have the fastest memory design possible, AFAIK.

@delshay

Nice scores for your blizzard PPC. Nice work.

on my 366MHz cyberstorm I put in a CVision PPC and got the following for video bus:

---> VIDEO BUS <---
READ: 5 MB/Sec
WRITE: 18 MB/SEC

I tried changing the ram to 60ns but it basically made no difference in the test results, about 1MB/sec faster on the L1/L2 cache but that's it.

Prometheus going over Zorro gets lame write speeds (due to Zorro crap bus) ;)

But the Voodoo still feels a bit faster than CVision PPC...probably way fater gfx memory on-board and faster gfx chip than CVision PPC...

@gerograph

Looks great, although on slower machines datatypes are really slow, so I wish for an internal decompression method.

Try out CybersShow or PhotoAlbum. They have internal decoding (not datatypes) and are extremely fast, even if 68k emulated.

I'm interested to register but i want to try it out first before I would pay for it.
