I've finally got my 4000 up and running now that I've replaced some ICs near the RTC area that died.

Now I'm in the process of extracting the files from the pimiga project to see if I can get it running on the 4000 with my zz9000...not sure how much work that will be upgrading that install from 3.1 to 3.1.4 though!

What's that project??

It's this one here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/AmigaCDnestProject.CD1200/

Injection moulding even to test is expensive.

Obviously it costs money if you don't have one already but 3d printing might be okay for some level of prototyping - if you don't have a 3d printer perhaps there are some maker spaces in your area might be able to help out.

When I've been interested in something better than what I can do at home, I've engaged 3rd parties to print stuff with reasonable results, that particular mob I linked to is out of country so may take time to get something in your hands with the whole Zombie apocalypse going on at the moment, so you may need to weigh up cost vs turn around time.  These days there are good materials that can be sanded/painted and have reasonable strength and thermal properties which help before you go down the path of injection moulding.

Just another question / thought to throw in the ring!

While I would dearly love to get one of the new ZX Spectrum Nexts, and speaking as someone very short on time (and frankly - not the inclination these days to build my own! - How do these pre-built MISTer's stand up for value - it would come in under the cost of the ZXNext!

Amiga store even have the MIST available again!

I've been slowly bringing an A1200 I bought up to speed, it had a mangled IDE port, needed a recap and just recently i found the keyboard controller is misaligned so i'm probably going to get that done soon.

Already have 3.1.4 ROMS and WB installed with a large CF card and an ACA1233n 55MHz - it is pretty quick too which is nice, more responsive in disk activity over my TF330 powered CD32, not sure if that's the IDE speeder doing it's thing or just a better CF I really should bench both CF's to see i think it might be the write speed causing it.

I've been doing a couple things lately; applied the fix on my zz9000 and tested with 1.7 firmware to ensure it's complete. Had to revert back to 1.6 shortly after due to all the corrupted display bugs I encountered.

Have to resurrect the cd32 as it refuses to get past a grey screen. Once that's done I'm hoping to install the wifi module on there and get that working.

Nearly completed my a3000 build.....just waiting on a SCSI card as the onboard one doesn't like having an accelerator present.

Hello all,

New member here. I have used Amigas since 1987, started with an A500 purchased layby from David Jones when I was 17, then bought multiple 2000's, an A4000, an A3000, A4000T, 2 A1200s & a CD32.

Still have every machine except a couple of the A2000s got battery corrosion bad and have been used to fix a couple of friends 2000s.

Recently finished building a RE-Amiga 1200 v1.5 into an A1200.Net Black Case. Am waiting on a 1200 remake keyboard and parts to build it.

Currently am building an AA3000+ morherboard, an A4000TX motherboard with Pheonix PCI Daughter Board and an A4000cr motherboard to replace another heavily battery damaged board.

I get most of my chipset parts from Icomp.de or Ebay or the Amiga.org forums.

Currently need a Super Dmac-02 for the AA3000+ build as I do not want to use the one from my running A3000 Desktop.

Phillip, MadMungo

^ welcome!

Still waiting on the SCSI board for my 3000, shipping in the US is slow, let alone arrive here  :-[

My a3660 and daughterboard PCBs have arrived at least!

Well I have almost completed my A4000+ motherboard, just waiting on some oscillators then time to fire it up and test.

A Forum starter to get discussion growing...

What are you currently spending time on?

Personally I am going down the path of Replacing CD32 SMD electrolytic capacitor's, at an early stage so far.

Hi,

I'm currently working on lashing an A1200 into a MIDI music setup. The hardest part is configuring a patch board to route audio FX signals in a semi-modular way. I use Bars&Pipes to run the MIDI end. B&P runs rock solid on a stock A500.

I have a (mumble mumble) accelerator card. The accelerator is there for when I want to compile code. It's got 64MB of RAM (-0.5MB for copying system stuff) which is overkill in any man's language.

I get freaked out about digging around the insides of electronics so I don't have any anecdotes about that.

I hope you're all doing well!
