@NinjaCyborg

If you have a boot-screen like the one on the webpage I linked to below, you have the latest Uboot on Sam 460. :)

Nice! I will get one myself. I see Amiga on the Lake has one for sale. :)

I got Napalm running today! :) The patch on OS4Depot (http://os4depot.net/?function=showfil ... =game/strategy/napalm.lha) works here on my Sam460ex. Not tried network yet, but happy that it runs!

@Spectre660

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try it once I get a DVD-drive installed as well. :)

So, if I have HD in port 1, HD in port 2, DVD in port 3 (just an example), it will be:

nvsetvar sii3114ide?conf=1120

Is that correct?

Now, this is probably a stupid question, but if I use the setup like it is now.. 1 HD connected to internal SATA, 1 HD connected to PCI card, will the one connected to PCI card use DMA and the other one PIO? I'm not very familiar with all this, but one does not learn without asking. :D

It works fine if:

- Main HD is connected to the internal SATA port on the SAM
- Secondary HD connected to the SATA PCI card

But can't boot from PCI for some reason. Tried adjusting boot settings in UBOOT (boot from 3114 HD I think it was).

Any ideas? :)

Received the card today and installed it. It boots up to the AmigaOS 4.1 boot-screen, loads for a while and then the Hyperion insert disk screen appears. :(

Sounds great guys! Many thanks! :) Hopefully the old disks still work. :D

@devils_advisor

Looking forward to hear how it goes with the fan! I've been considering buying one myself and if it works well in your setup, I'll probably order one. :)

Many thanks for the helpful information guys. :) Have now ordered a SATA controller (SiI3114). Do you think the difference will be quite noticeable from using the on-board SATA?

How to enable DMA for SATA devices? - Sam460ex

Hello,

In the Sam460ex manual it says:

"How to enable DMA for SATA devices?

Check the documentation which comes with the operating system on how to enable DMA for SATA devices. By default, all devices are set to PIO mode (slow)."

I'm using the on-board SATA, not through a HD-controller in the PCI slot.

I suspect my setup is set to PIO. Anyone knows how to enable DMA? :)

Thanks in advance.

A suggestion from me is Giana's Return, a remake of Great Giana Sisters. Very good game!

Connect 3.5 IDE HD to Sam460ex
Just popping in

I have some old Amiga HD's, for example the main one I used many years ago for an Amiga 1200. It is 3.5 IDE.

What is the best way to connect this to a Sam460ex?

I was thinking an external HDD cabinet with USB 2 could work? If yes, will AmigaOS 4 be able to read the HDD once connected?

Thanks in advance for suggestions. :) Would be great to back up some of that old data before the HDD stops working (it might have, but hopefully not).

Re: AmigaOne Micro vs SAM motherboards

I know this is a thread about AmigaOne Micro vs Sam460, but...

Watched a video of E-UAE running on X5000. What a world of difference! I think this video was from Kas1e from this forum and it showed several E-UAE instances running at the same time with games and demos, all smoothly.

Is the difference in speed so big between the X5000 and Sam460ex?

I like the Odyssey browser, as it works with most sites I visit, but it can be a bit slow due to my hardware. Is web browsing much faster on the X5000? :)

Thanks for the information everyone. :)

Was not aware that it was an old port. On Generation Amiga they wrote that this was a new version with several improvements and bugfixes.

Portable Bioware's Infinity Engine
Just popping in
Just popping in


Noticed this file was uploaded recently on OS4Depot:

Portable Bioware's Infinity Engine

Quote:

"GemRB (Game engine made with pre-Rendered Background) is a portable open-source implementation of Bioware's Infinity Engine.

It was written to support pseudo-3D role playing games based on the Dungeons & Dragons ruleset (Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series, Planescape: Torment). It should run on GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows, OS X, possibly other UNIX derivatives and more. It is licensed under the GPL."

Have any of you tried it and if yes, did it work? Do you think Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale will run ok on a Sam460?

Thanks in advance. :)

I have not tried Napalm before, but love RTS-games in general. Is it free to download or is it perhaps for sale somewhere?
