Good to see my old workhorse still being used today! Much better than sitting in the garage waiting for rats to find it... Even better when someone has the know-how to fix/mod it. Too bad it was being a stubborn bitch when I was at your place.

Next time...

You need to stop abusing Amigas, as soon as you left she booted up no problem

It started it. The third and last screen I had decided to blow up when I was finally giving Super Nashwan a pounding in Speedball 2.

I will let you know when get my hands on the joysticks and boxes of disks...

Ah Amiga, the original "network" games platform - 4 player Lotus Turbo Esprit on two A500's linked by serial cable (2 wires and blu-tack)!!! So much missed study

I'm in the process of selling off most of my Amiga and Commodore gear, just don't have the time for it anymore. Of my collection I'm keeping my A3000, A500, A600 and C64, still got to get rid of my A1000, C128D and a myriad of other Amiga related "stuff".

The A3000 is pretty stock bar the ZIP-SIMM converter. It's an 030/882 @ 25MHz, with 2MB Chip RAM, 16MB Fast RAM, a 2.1GB 7200RPM SCSI drive and KickStart 3.1. Always wanted one of these as a kid and now I have one, great for playing the old school games on a large LCD monitor as it has an inbuilt scan doubler.

The A500 is again pretty stock but I am planning on adding a kickstart switcher to it. I also have a GVP HD8+ with a 150MB SCSI drive and 8MB of Fast RAM installed. Good for plugging into the TV when I'm feeling nostalgic.

The A600 was the computer that pretty much got me through my school years, not this particular one, my parent sold the original one. This A600 is equipped with an Apollo A620 which is an 020/882 based CPU board running at 28MHz with 8MB of Fast RAM, just gotta order myself a 44pin mini IDE cable and I'll have a 40GB hdd install pretty soon. Don't know what I'll do with 40GB worth of storage space

So yeah, that's my Amiga collection...

Certainly the best memories were in the days of the Amiga. It was just such a fun computer, many multiplayer competitiions of speedball2 and kick off 2 and stunt car racer (need to do a remake of that) and dogs of war. Shadow of the beast and rocket ranger were always my "show the machine off" games to anyone that came into our house.

I also still got mine in a box with loads of original software and other stuff, its turned a funny brown colour now though instead of the nice creamy beige it once was. I got the extra disk drive and action replay cartridge and more ram, never went down the hard drive road though.

The amiga emulator for PC was good but you need a good joystick to play those old games, no good joysticks these days for PC.

Wow, happy 25th birthday Amiga.
Having owned an original A1000 from new, a A2500 later on, and lusted after an A4000, these computers still remind me of what excited me about computers in the first place.

Shes a bit dusty, and I've lost the battery cover off the mouse too. The remote controller is in good nick though. I'll spend some time over the next few days cleaning it all up and I'll put up some photos.

I also found the power supply for my Plus/4 so I may as well dig all my commie gear out

25 years? Has it really been that long?

Subscribed to this thread, maybe i will get motivated to spend more time with my excessive Amiga collection now.

I had an A1000 with a 1081 (from memory) monitor, I still think some of the games on there were the best games I've played. I wish I hadn't sold it for some piffling amount of $$

Ahhh the Amiga - what an amazing machine. I had an A500 back in the day - paid about $3200 for the system from memory, but $1050 of that was a colour 24pin dot matrix printer!

Computers today - I dunno - not as exciting as the old days somehow.
