    I'm looking for some Amiga inspired chiptunes. I've found a few sites, but they seem mostly about remixing so it sounds like it is still close to 100% doable on the good ol' Amiga.

    I prefer more mordern style techno-style music with 'inspiration' from old stuff, rather than simply grabbing Turrican and remixing it. So more along the lines of Lukhash i suppose.

    Cheers.

    Download some Amiga musicdisks and run them in WinUAE? You can search on pouet.net for the top rated ones.

    Check out the Razor 1911 Chipdisk series if you haven't already - these run on Windows. This is my favourite one: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=14585

    Too easy, go for the old thing and the new thing. 4Matt. He is still going. Reflections 1 and 2 are great floppy disk music albums. There may be better sources. Moondark on 1 absolutely blew me away. Search 4mat on facebook too. Some interesting videos too. Plus albums on youtube.

    Have just had confirmed that a dude on Amibay is sending me two kickstart ROM mod boards for PAL A1000s. YES! I am planning to do a switch to make the external drive DF0: for a gotek. I also have some fast ram on a couple of side cars. Bingo-Amiga game box with colour composite video!

    Anyone got any good sites for downloading WHDload images of games/demo's?

    Something other than the WHDload site itself.

    Just curious, why not just get from the WHDload site? Is it still god-awful and near impossible to find what you want? :)

    4mat seems 'ok', but more groove than techno. Hipsters might love it ;)

    Sorry guys, all the other suggestions are pure Amiga music - made on Amiga hardware/software. Whilst i'm perfectly happy with those tunes, they're not something i'll bounce to whilst driving or going to the gym or annoying my colleagues with at work. Modern music, infused with Amiga sounds is the kind of thing i'm looking for.

    :)

    The WHDLoad site only includes the installers, you still need to locate a copy of the game, then run the installer.

    Retroplay does all that work for you.

    Retroplay! That''s what I need, cheers DonutKing. I'm sure there also used to be another site, but I now can't find it.

    A downloadin' I go...:)

    Good stuff.

    I'd be keen to know if the input lag in 1080p and 720p modes that I had with my unit is still present on your unit (I bought mine several years ago now, one presumes there's been firmware updates since).

    You should not get any lag in any of the 4:3 VESA modes.

    where is the most noticeable input lag? e.g. when using workbench and scrolling around with mouse ? I can test that. Havent played with it much yet.

    I wonder how that would work with an S-Video to SCART adapter off a C64?

    Workbench is the easiest. Move the mouse and/or move a window. Move it quickly left and right.

    It works with the composite video signal as well, so one presumes the other lines for S-Video will work as well, but I haven't tested that on mine.

    I've got an LCD with composite in for my C64 but it's contrast ratio is shocking, I'd like to use a better LCD except everything only has DVI, HDMI or D-SUB. Ideally I'd love a 1701/2, but they've become unobtanium unfortunately.

    I've been given a monitor with a Scart input. Does that mean it'll just 'work'?
