hey i'm sure you guys have been busy preparing for and going to the play expo but is there any news on testing this on real hardware?



thanks for offering to test it for me. Very pleased you liked the intro

Over the last few months (in my spare time) I've put together a little intro for the RCM.

This is fully coded using WinUAE so I could really do with someone to test this for me on real Amiga hardware (it should work on all Amigas from 512k A500 upwards).

In particular disk loader routines and keyboard routines in the end part are areas I'd like to confirm are working OK on real Amiga hardware.

I've attached a zip of the ADF file here. If anyone is able to test this for me I would be most grateful.

Also feel free to comment on the intro - although don't be too scathing of my design as i worked on this purely by myself without any graphic artists and my skills are definitely as a coder rather than a designer.

Hi. Put me down for Saturday and Sunday for both weekends.

You guys really don't know what you're voluteering for  ;D

i was rather hoping the old adage 'many hands make light work' applies here.

I live just up the road in beaumont leys and i'm happy to help move stuff if you need more hands.

Traci and I had a great time too.

I'm sure she only comes with me because she knows she can kick my ass on n64 goldeneye ;)

We will definitely both be back again in the future.

I've been a fan of this site for a while. I originally found out about you when saw the exhibit at Snibston discovery museum.

I did come to the valentines day retro gaming weekend at Snibston earlier on in the year.

I'm a software engineer working on mostly web based applications nowadays but i started off back in the 8 bit days. I've always been interested in programming so i started off aged 13 with an Acorn Electron. I then moved up to a 128k Spectrum and then onto the Amiga. This is where i was most active and where i find the most nostalgia. I had an A500, A1200 and two A4000's between 1990 and 1998.

I was active on the Amiga warez scene around 1993 - 1996. I still like to keep up with the folks at EAB and and if i have some spare time to contribute where i can.

Some years later i was also active on the GBA scene for a while doing trainers.

More recently I've contributed to a few open source projects here and there and developed a couple of javascript based emulators of my own

Elk JS - An Electron Emulator
EstyJS - An Atari 520ST Emulator

Well that's about it really.

Looking forward to the Christmas open day this weekend.

Hopefully maybe i'll get to meet some of you at one of the open days at some point.
