Nippon Safes Inc. Amiga Fix & Patch (French)
Posted by dlfrsilver - 15 August 2017 06:28
dlfrsilver's Avatar  Hello Everyone,

I have finished one of my big projects, namely Nippon Safes Inc. From Dynabyte.

Basically the data files were just knackered (possibly due to a bad productivity tool which outputed files with bad formatting leading to crashes in the french version).

I have fixed, removed the 3 copy protections, tested the game with the 3 characters in every possible way, and finished the game (too many times).
And the program is also fully translated (i kept the english words from the requester to save/load).

This is a Flashtro French division fix/patch release

You'll find 2 versions of disk 1 : one with the protection intact to correct the faulty originals, and the other with the fixes + protections removed.

PS : it's more efficient, faster to patch and fix directly the data files.

It's in the zone. Now all the ADF on the net will be able to be corrected !

RNOInfoScreen: Music Player Front-End And Info Screen
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 09 August 2017 11:51

RNOInfoScreen works as a front-end to various music and media players by
displaying the "now playing" information with cover art images, and offers
basic media control options for the user (play, pause, next, etc.).

Why? Because I listen to music on my MorphOS computers a lot and I wanted
to have a fullscreen application to display the "now playing" information
when I'm not using the computer screen otherwise.

I find myself quite often wondering what's playing currently when I listen
to large random playlists, and my application offers this feature very
easily, even from a distance away, so I don't have to drag my ass back to my

Why not make it a full-blown player too? Because I'm not trying to re-invent
the wheel. Everyone has their own favourite music players and characteristics
for different needs, this program just gives you an alternate way to use

Why has it such a generic name? Because I'm leaving my way open, in case I
expand it to display more than just music related information in the future.


- Detects the running player and gets the information from it automatically
- Supported players: Jukebox, SongPlayer, AmiNetRadio, TuneNet 2.4 or later,
AmigaAMP 2.22 or later, MPlayer (MUI)
- Displays information about the previous and currently playing songs
- Displays album art images, if found, from song's directory or via Internet
(Cover Art Archive)
- Configurable cache for downloaded images
- A clock display
- Fullscreen and windowed (sizeable) modes
- Mouse and keyboard controls for prev/pause/play/next and volume
- Can disable screen blankers
- scrobbling support on MorphOS with the UniScrobbler script
- Can be used as a MorphOS blanker with the included binary file
- Hidden quit (top left if in fullscreen mode) and screen swap (top right of
screen if in fullscreen mode) by single left mouse-click on corner pixels.


- MorphOS 3.x, OS4, or AmigaOS 3.x
- A working ARexx environment (rexxsyslib.library installed on MorphOS)
- On a classic Amiga: high or true color RTG, KS3.0+ and plenty of mem, but
no guarantee how well it works on real machines, probably not too well.


- Copy an executable or the whole directory anywhere you want, no further
installation required
- To use as a blanker in MorphOS, copy the RNOInfoScreen.btd file to the
SYS:Classes/Blankers directory or use the provided install script.


- Start the music playback on any of the supported players and then just
launch this program
- Double-click or rcommand-f switches between fullscreen and windowed modes
- Displayed elements can be enabled and disabled from the pull-down menu
- Move the mouse to get control buttons displayed
- Volume can be controlled with the mouse wheel or from the keyboard,
holding the shift key changes it in larger increments in MorphOS
- Keyboard controls:
Right - Next
Left - Previous
Up - Volume up
Down - Volume down
Space - Pause
Enter - Play
Esc - Quit

Apollo Team announces the Vampire V4
Posted by TuKo - 03 August 2017 16:41
TuKo's Avatar  After the big success of the Vampire 600 V2 and Vampire 500 V2+, Apollo Team is proud to announce their next generation FPGA device: the Vampire V4.

The Vampire V4 is made with a standard “one design to fit them all” and comes in three flavors depending on customer need:
  • The Vampire V4 Standalone System
  • The Vampire V4 for Amiga Classic compatible with
    • Amiga 1000/500/2000/CDTV
    • Amiga 600 with kippa’s adapter (if produced)
  • The Vampire V4 for Amiga 1200

This new Vampire V4 packs many upgraded specifications and brings Amiga Classic systems to another new performance paradigm thanks to its new Altera Cyclone 5 A5 FPGA and fast DDR3 memory.

The Vampire V4 standalone system will be a complete new Amiga system powered by the 68080 CPU core and the complete SAGA chipset (AGA compatible).

Vampire V4 is powered by:
  • FPGA : Altera Cyclone V A5 (77k LE, 28nm technology)
  • RAM : 512MB DDR3 (up to 1GB/s)

And supports:
  • FastIDE with 40/44-pin connectors
  • Digital Video-out up to 720p@60Hz
  • Dual Kickstart-flashrom (for safety)
  • MicroSD Storage

Certification: Vampire V4 is CE, WEEE and RoHS compliant

PCB is populated by:
1. IO Header #1
2. IO Header #2
3. IO Header #3
4. Ethernet
5. USB
6. USB
7. DB9 (standalone only)
8. DB9 (standalone only)
9. FastIDE 40-pin
10. FastIDE 44-pin
11. FPGA
12. Digital Video Amplifier
13. Digital Video Output
14. DDR3 RAM
15. JTAG Header
16. MicroSD slot
17. MicroUSB Power (standalone only)

All other details are documented in this PDF.

Apollo Team wishes you a GREAT summer :-)

A3000 floppy disk eject button
Posted by amiman99 - 02 August 2017 05:02
amiman99's Avatar  In my spare time and a caliper I have made a floppy disk eject button for Amiga 3000. This eject button is a perfect replacement for your A3000.
I give this free to the Amiga community.

See pictures below.

I have included a STL file for you to print in the 3D Printer.

Let me know if you have printed one.

Mu680x0Libs Released
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 30 July 2017 00:43

Release 46.4 does not change the 68040 and 68060 libraries at all, only the 68020 and 68030 libraries have been updated. The only change is that both libraries enable caching and (when applicable) bursting for the instruction and (if available) the data cache. Note that the 68040 and 68060 library do both since ever, i.e. they cache and burst data and instruction. This means in particular that the CPU command is no longer required to optimize the settings for 68020 and 68030 processors.

FlashFloppy - new firmware for Gotek drives, open source
Posted by Akira - 21 July 2017 16:23
Akira's Avatar  Thanks to Higgy for pointing this one out to me, it seems we have a new contender in the Gotek firmware land, and this one is open source, which I hope will lead to a lot more improvement over what we have already.

Keir Fraser, not a stranger to the Amiga world, having made stuff like Keirf's Disk Utilities, has released FlashFloppy, a new firmware for STM32F10x based floppy emulators

Seems like it's early days, and I haven't been able to find any more info about it. I am ASSUMING this is compatible with Amiga and Atari ST, also from the existence of a FlashFloppy file selector supporting both those platforms:

It also says there that this is compatible with the HxC loader in other platforms, so perhaps this is more of a universal floppy emu like HxC. Good stuff!

I am glad to see this popping up and hopefully we get a kick ass firmware out of it. After Cortex being abandoned our only hope has been HxC, but it isn't open source.

Hopefully file slots on the selector can finally be connected by filename instead of by physical location on the USB media, so we can start sharing playlists of stuff.

[edit] Confirmed by Keir, it is in his thoughts to allow his Selector to be able to load images by filename and path instead of by cluster. This is great news!

Wet:Weather Conditions On Wb
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 03 July 2017 09:53

Wet v6.5a, weather conditions on WB for OS3 and OS4: Download

This program retrieves local meterological data from the Internet, and saves it in (regulary updating) env-vars to allow you to display it in the WB titlebar, as an icon on Workbench, AmiDock or in the GUI. It can show a forecast for up to 24 hours ahead (where available), and is fully localisable.

New translations for:
English (built-in)
Polish Spanish

Old or partial translations for:

N.B. Full install, if you have updated wet to v6.5 already, you do not need to install this archive!
