Here’s what I’m using for Amiga development in various platforms and languages. This will be continuously updated.
I’m using a Pimiga as my very convenient emulated setup.
- SAS/C 6.5.8
- SAS/C 6.5.0 in TOSEC crashes on Pimiga, but 6.5.8 works great
Guides & Tutorials
faron an struct if you get link errors about data > 32768
Customstruct seems to trigger that
- Data types
- For some reason I got this working a lot easier the second time around on Pimiga
- An Amiga 1200
- A Gotek drive
- An ACA 68030 accelerator with 128MB of Fast RAM
- I got an Amiga <-> USB adapter and it taked a few minutes and a bunch of right clicks for Paula or the CIA to “warm up” to the right clicks.
- Floppy writes in FS-UAE are cached via overlays
- The USB drive needs to be formatted
fat16and you need two files at the root of it
- You use the two buttons to move back and forth between the mounted ADFs
- You can’t put new ADFs into the rotation without a reboot
CF Card in PCMCIA reader
- What worked
- Transcend PCMCIA -> CF adapter
- SanDisk 512MB
- What didn’t
- Verbatim 4GB
- You can’t use an Amiga FFS or similar card in the PCMCIA slot. It has to be FAT16 or FAT32.
- Cabletron RoamAbout 802.11b card
- Get the prism2v2 so you can get WPA2
- WirelessManager runs in the background and handles the connection to the network, while MiamiDX does the TCP/IP stuff
I needed to set up hostapd on a Raspberry Pi to create a slightly downgraded access point that bridged to the rest of my network.
# hostapd.conf wpa=2 wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK wpa_pairwise=TKIP rsn_pairwise=CCMP
MiSTer and Minimig
FPGAs are cool.
