    Footflaps – yes I have a fully working a500+ with hard drive and games. (It’s not this one though, this is just a joke based on another thread)

    Retro! That’s a flashback. What was the yellow one?

    C64 and Spectrum were much earlier, it’s like comparing an iPhone to a 3210 . ( hides geekness)

    I think it was something wrong with the boot loader (kickstart?) but it’s been a while!

    Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge was great.

    This sounds really sad. But I always thought the Amiga was a good looking home computer.

    I had a Jupiter Ace and an Oric Atmos.

    Still a great machine. I have 2 in the loft, both 500’s. I haven’t fired them up in ages, tbh, emulators ftw.

    Speedball 2, Warhead, Subwar 2050, Thunderhawk, Phobia, Zeewolf 1 and 2. Lovely.

    I bodged my dads hard drive into mine! a MASSIVE 20mb one. MI2 worked great. And i learnt how to program using Amos. happy days

    Funny, just cleared out my retro games collection and all I’m left with are the Amiga games.
    Anyone want to make an offer?

    Thats a very feminine pc. Are you a Tranny/crossdresser OP?

    We would have KILLED for any of the ‘forementioned. My stepdad was an early adopter of Basic and bought a Sharp MZ80k. The games were unutterably naff. Strip poker was shattering in its disappointment πŸ™

    Pook excellent choice getting the plus.

    I’ve got a massive box of games I’ll hunt out for you.

    Buzzing. I’ll bring some games round for you to copy.

    Just got Test Drive!!!!

    (My 13 year old nephew is amazed we used to be able to share games/music/things)

    Rusty S – is that a Relum Tornado based lamping set up?

    No idea mate.
    All I know is it’s Harlton Cheston with a bloody big gun.
    From The Omega Man.

    You can’t see the join, can you?

    Bet he could get loads of bunnies on Blackley golf course with that.

    I like your watch btw.
    I used to love those placcy strapped TAGs from the same era.
    Wish I’d got one when I had the chance.

    I have an Atari ST (actually mine from the 90s) in the loft and a load of games. I bought a hard drive for it (16MB!) in 1998 when I was at uni, and I recently completed the set with the lovely 12″ monochrome monitor – that was Β£20. Pointless but one of the few ‘collectable’ purchases I’ve ever made. Booted it up a while ago, all my stuff was still on the HD πŸ™‚ Might have to do something to preserve all those floppies though. Maybe I’ll bring it down to the living room and see if I can play Buggy Boy on a 40″ LCD telly πŸ™‚

    More of an Oric Atmos 48k man myself.

    Also in the loft I have an Oric 1 but it’s sadly not my original one. I had that for a long time along with the original telly and tape recorder we got for it, a load of games, books and even those magazines with games to type in.

    all I can say is that you better have some decent games on your phone while you wait for the games to load

    i had the a1200 which i upgraded with a whopping 8mb HDD – second hand out the scotads.

    Lemmings and Paradroid were the game of choice.

    My first computer was an Amiga A1500 – 1mb “Chip” RAM and 2 3.5″ in a massive empty box. Got an AGA 1200 a few years later, it had a whopping 127mb HDD and 2mb “Chip” RAM then added an ‘030 accelerator and another 4mb “Fast” RAM.

    Xenon II Megablast
    Turrican
    Populous
    Sim City
    Lemmings
    Worms – IIRC that was the result of a competition run by Team 17 and Amiga Format
    Zool
    All the Microprose flight sims
    Deluxe Paint
    Imagine – it came free on the cover of Amiga Format one month and had me hooked!

    Happy Days!

    I had an Amiga 500 which was brilliant.

    I always wanted a Jupiter Ace though as I wanted to learn Forth. Having the OBP on SUN/SPARC machines helped that along a bit. There’s still a few machines around the country that say stuff if you type ‘adam’ at the boot prompt! πŸ˜€
