AminetReadmeMaker: Little tool allows you to easily write a Aminet Readme file and also upload
to the aminet server!

Its written with Hollywood v7.1 (http://www.hollywood-mal.com/) and compiled as
a so called "applet".
I decided to distribute only the applet so it can be execute on all platforms
which supports the RapaGUI plugin (AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, MorphOS and AROS!).

You need the Hollywood Player
(http://www.hollywood-mal.com/downloa...ayer_Amiga.lha) to run it!

If anyone wants an executeable to be started without the need for the Hollywood
Player feel free to ask me and I will send you a compiled version for your
favourite OS!

If you find bugs or if you have suggestions send me an eMail!

SMBFS released

AMIGASYSTEM's Avatar 


SMBFS: SMBFS A SMB file system wrapper for AmigaOS, using the AmiTCP V3 API

SMBFS implements an SMB file system for AmigaOS. This file system can be used to access files made available
by file servers which implement the SMB protocol, such as 'Microsoft Windows' or any other platform which supports
the free 'Samba' product. These files can be accessed using shell commands such as 'List', the Workbench or utilities
such as 'Directory Opus' as if the file server were a local disk drive.

This build is a simple compilation from Source Code found on
https://github.com/obarthel/amiga-smbfs/releases

No ChangeLog was provided after version 1.106

HstWB Installer for Classic Amiga
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 12 April 2018 17:21
AMIGASYSTEM's Avatar 


HstWB Installer is a set of powershell scripts, image templates, configuration files, AmigaDOS scripts and binaries used to easily build Amiga HDF or directory images with automated installation of Workbench, Kickstarts roms and packages with additional content for Classic Amiga. It's currently being developed and maintained by Henrik Nørfjand Stengaard.
Setting up a blank Amiga HDF image with e.g. PFS3, Workbench, Kickstarts roms, WHDLoad games and demos installed properly can be a cumbersome task unless you spend a lot of time figuring out how this is done step by step.
This is where HstWB Installer come to aid and can help to automate such installations using WinUAE and should be possible for almost anyone to do with very little knowledge about Amiga.
The packages included are BetterWB, HstWB, EAB WHDLoad games and demos menus for both AGA and OCS. Menu packages has screenshots and details for EAB games and demos WHDLoad packs configured for Arcade Game Selector 2 and iGame. These packages can be added to an image configuration and will be installed during HstWB Installer installation process.
In general HstWB Installer is build as a minimalistic as possible using BetterWB and HstWB to support A500 as a minimum. HstWB is mainly targeted A500, A600, A1200. The minimalistic approach allows users to customize it further with their own preferences like installing eg. MagicWB or Scalos.
Since Amiga Workbench and Kickstart roms are licensed property these files can't be included as they need to be acquired legally by buying Cloanto Amiga Forever or using grabkick from aminet to dump roms from real Amiga's.
HstWB is short for my name and Workbench (very original, I know).

IndieGoGo: New Compatible Amiga 500 Cases
Posted by amenophis - 07 April 2018 18:17
amenophis's Avatar 




Dear Amigans,



The A1200 Team and myself are happy to share with you our third Crowdfunding campaign.

►New Amiga 500(+) Compatible cases ◄


Campaign Link:
https://tiny.cc/a500case


Please note:

  • The campaign is now in USD.
  • Previous campaign for the keycaps was in SGD.
  • This wasn't easy for some backers to notice right away.
  • One of the many advantages moving to Indiegogo was the option to chose the USD currency, alongside a bunch of other features they offer. Things that are not possible on Kickstarter.





Campaign informations:
The purpose of this new campaign is to create new molds for Amiga 500 computer cases.


With the Team we've decided to go for the A500+ case design with its larger badge. Since we'll provide nice Metal badges.


The molds will carry out the case shells, but also expansion doors, and Apollo Vampire ports adapter, Vampire V4 cradle and if everything goes as planned with the last stretch goal; Replacement shells for Tank Mouse will be available too.


As the bulk of the stress for the keycaps is now over.
We know we have the design and materials down. And are now waiting for our production slot and then go into labeling.
And this is 100% outsourced to our manufacturing partners.

Thus we now have the bandwidth to invest time in the next project and work on the design (which started already a few months ago with we had the Keycap Design set it stone)





Here a couple campaign details and case features:


  • The campaign will last 45 days.
    - It can be expended to 60 days if necessary.
  • You can pledge on multiple rewards
    - Just send a message after your first pledge and we'll get back to you.
  • New run of Keycaps is planned
    - This will happen after all keycaps backers have received their rewards.
  • Case is a Replica of Original A500 case
  • Full support for Vampire accelerators
  • New trapdoor on the rear
  • Vented bottom trapdoor
  • Metal brass inserts & screws
  • Case Metal Badge
  • Rubber Foot
  • New Original A500 Color.
    New RED and GREEN Colors
  • New Tank Mouse Shells (Stretch Goal)



Thank you again for your support and for helping us to continue and renew necessary parts of the Amiga classics.


Cheers,
Phil
Team A1200NET

LoadModule Released
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 30 March 2018 01:09
AMIGASYSTEM's Avatar 


LoadModule installs so called "resident modules" in a reset-proof way, possibly replacing ROM modules by disk-based modules, similar to what SetPatch and its "ROM-Updates" mechanism does. "Resident modules" are loadable binaries containing a special structure telling the Os how to initialize them and what to perform on initialization - Amiga libraries and devices are the canonical example of these modules, the "ram-handler" is another. "LoadModule" can be used to install these resident modules in a reset proof way such that they are available immediately at system bootstrap time. This is desired whenever a module is required for booting, as for example some of modules in the Amiga-Os ROM-Updates. "LoadModule" can therefore be used as a more canonical form of the ROM-Updates since it does not require an undocumented file format - modules have to be provided as loadable disk based binaries in their most canonical form, and can be kept in their canonical location. For example, the V45 "console.device" could be kept in DEVS: similar to all other devices. "LoadModule" can be used as well to replace the ROM-based icon and workbench.libraries by their disk-based 3.5 and 3.9 replacments, or to make modules reset-proof that are typically disk-based, for example the diskfont.library or the mmu.library.


New in V45:

Can also load the 3.9 exec.library, and can upgrade the ROM fully automatically from disk. See below for details.

For a quick start, just run "ExtractModule" without any arguments on an Os 3.9 system. This will place all modules of the ROM Updates in the right places, and LoadModule AUTOwill pick them up correctly.
