    I found that a bit of graphite puffed in around the buttons sorted that out nicely.

    Yes, I am definitely interested. Depends on your location though, as postage is a killer.

    Ah the Amiga. First computer I ever bought with my own money was an A500 and 1084S monitor when they first came out in 1987. Had only been working for about a year at the time too.
    Next up was an A2500 with kickstart 2.x beta roms from a tester, then an A2000, CD32, A4000 with 060 card 16MB fast ram and Picasso 4 video card and the MicroniK A4000 (6960 & 6980) Zorro III expansion Board, an a1200 cheap from a mate and finally an A3000 because I thought the battery had killed my 4000.

    Also have many hardware addons for all the above machines. All were modded in some way or another except the A3000 and A4000.

    Man you guys must have paid my wages back in the day, I worked for the distributor of all the GVP, DKB, Paravision products etc. So many brands we had I forget.

    Funny thing is though I still work in the professional video field and there's quite a few customers of mine I've now been dealing with for nigh on 20 years!

    Is there a good website out there with a list and (preferably) images on Amiga games. I'm trying to track down an old space shooter I used to play but I can't remember it's name but I would probably be able to identify it if I see it.

    Yepp, http://www.lemonamiga.com/

    It gives screen shots, and then a few links to sites hosting the respective ADF's.

    Ahh the Amiga 500, I wonder where mine got too.. probably in some dusty box at the folks place.

    Recently had some nostalgia for Turrican II. Is that on emulator too?

    The music in that game (any many other games like SWIV, Bloodmoney, Altered Beast, etc) was awesome for the day, and in some respects even today.



    Chris Hüelsbeck where are you now!? :)

    Two good Amiga shooters that are worth checking out in your travels I reckon are Hybris and Xenon II

    Two classics, to be sure. Some others that people are sure to remember that are not are not coin-op conversions or ports. SWIV has already been mentioned...

    Menace
    Project X (I think the PC port came second)
    Blood Money (I think the PC port came second)
    Sidewinder
    Apidya
    Z-Out
    Battle Squadron

    I have gotten all of these working un WinUAE except Project X, but its probably an issue with the ADF rather than the emulator itself.

    That was my most FAVOURITE game on the Amiga.
    To this day I still regularly play Bomb The Bass - Mega Blast

    My mate had an Amiga 1000 and I connected up this huge ghetto blaster he had cos the Amiga had stereo output.
    Always had his parents coming in telling us to turn it down.

    Spent many hours playing his Amiga, think I need to get me one after reading this thread.

    What one would be best, and has the most upgrade potential? A2000?

    Thats more of a question for google and what you want to do with it. AFAIK an a500 can go to 68060/2mb chip/wb3.5/8mb fast ram. Neither can use AGA graphics. It is important to find a recent mobo revision for ease of upgrading. The quick fix option is to get an A1200 because it has IDE and AGA graphics.

    *A lot of these things are variable, for example an a500 can take an A2000 slot card after modification.

    I still have my old Amiga 500 at home, is it worth anything to anyone? Have a heap of games on disk from back in the day, mouse, joystick, and the extra 512kB expansion board (wooo, a whopping 1MB total memory!!!!). I think I have a Philips 14" monitor to suit too.

    The Sydney Amiga User Group meets this coming Sunday (8th August) - you'll probably find a taker there if SpudBoy doesn't take it first.
