4-way Clockport Expander at Amiga Kit Amiga Store
Posted by - 24 June 2017 18:39's Avatar  Amiga Kit Amiga Store is pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Matthias Muench to supply his innovative 4-way Clockport Expander for the Amiga 1200 computer.

Matthias has created the first buffered Clockport expander which allows up to 4 devices to be connected to an Amiga 1200's 22-pin clockport header. With such a rich array of clockport expansions available these days, this is a very popular expansion with A1200 users. We are pleased to be able to supply the latest revision C of this expander board.

Amiga Kit has been manufacturing, assembling and commissioning Amiga hardware and software for over 13 years. We have been assembling this product in house to ensure Classic Amiga users have a readily available supply of hardware at affordable prices. We will continue to show our commitment by investing in the Amiga market and sponsor hardware and software development.

New English issue of Skrolli magazine available for pre-order - Amiga included
Posted by jtsiren - 21 June 2017 18:00
The computer culture magazine Skrolli launched an international version last year and is coming out with the second English issue this August, 2017. The issue will also feature a story on the Amiga hobby.

The mainly volunteer-based, yet professional quality magazine hailing from Finland, covers the entire breadth of the computing culture, from DIY to readymade, from productivity to games, from old to new. About the only thing it isn't, is a catalogue of product reviews, like so many magazines. Neither is it a "retro" magazine. Skrolli is an age-agnostic computer magazine for thinkers and tinkerers.

While Skrolli is not an Amiga magazine, it has plenty of Amiga enthusiasts as writers, and often covers Amiga topics in its Finnish edition as an important part of computing culture. Amiga will be included in the second English issue as well.

If you are interested, the first English issue is available for order and second issue for pre-order at Skrolli's website, both in glossy paper and digital app formats:

For a free sample issue and a FAQ on what is Skrolli, see:

- California Access Malibu

- M-Tec AT-500 Megabody

New features

- Softfloat FPU emulation mode. Bit perfect FPU emulation (except transcendental functions), including full arithmetic exception support. (Co-operation with Previous emulator author)

- American Laser Games second player and Actionware dual light gun adapter emulation.
- Real harddrive mount lock option. Enables full exclusive access even if drive has Windows mounted FAT partition(s).
- winlaunch.lib is now built-in feature and is also 64-bit compatible.
- Show [Paused] in windowed mode title bar when in pause mode.

Custom chipset features emulated

- AGA FMODE>0 unaligned bitplane and sprite pointer behavior implemented, resulting display corruption is now 100% accurate.
- BPLCON4 XOR mask special case in HAM6/8 or EHB modes.

icon  Amiga Future 127 preview are now available online
Posted by AndreasM - 15 June 2017 14:23
AndreasM's Avatar  The full colour preview and excerpts of the Amiga Future issue 127 (July/August 2017) are now available online.

Some of the interesting articles in this issue are:

Preview Powerglove
Review Prisma Megamix
Show Report Revision 2017

Of course there's so MUCH more actually in the magazine.

Needless to say you'll find some FULL versions of software, often what was commercially available, as well as some of the latest try-outs or freely released software applications and games for, hopefully, all of the Amiga type Operating systems, so that's Amiga 'Classic', OS4, MorphOS, and AROS, including some PD software for these systems, all on the cover CD.

A detailed description of content and excerpts can be found at:

The Amiga Future magazine is available as an English and German printed magazine - every issue is available in FULL COLOUR - directly available from the magazine editorial office and also from various other Amiga dealers.

OpenBOR - The 2D Side Scrolling Engine Ported to Classic Amiga !
Posted by lantus360 - 15 June 2017 08:18
Hi there!

i've ported OpenBOR Engine to 68K Amigas. If you aren't familiar with OpenBOR it is the ultimate 2D side scrolling engine. OpenBOR is the open source continuation of Beats of Rage, a Streets of Rage tribute game originally developed by Senile Team

You will need at least an Amiga with a fast 68040 AGA or RTG to play this.

I uploaded it the Zone and to Aminet tonight but link still may need a few hours to appear -

Complete instructions available in the Readme.

Screen shots below are captured on my Amiga A600 with Vampire 2

Source Code available at -

Video showing performance on real Amiga hardware (A4000, A1200, Vampire 2) -

I also livestreamed how I ported this over to the Amiga on my youtube channel over the past 2 weekends - if people were interested in that

Let me know how you like the port. I have fun working on this. Right then - off to play some Final Fight in OpenBOR

Phase 5 - Upcoming Blizzard PPC Accelerator
Posted by antiriad76 - 13 June 2017 18:58
I haven't seen any discussion on this in this forum but it Seems that Phase 5 might be coming back with a new release of the Blizzard PPC Accelerator.

I think the sourcing of the 68060 Chips or even the PCC 603+ might make this a very limited release product.

Any thoughts?

APC&TCP celebrates 25 years

APC&TCP will be 25 years old in May.

Since 25 years, the APC&TCP distribution exists.

In its origin the APC&TCP was founded to publish the software of Computer Club members on fair terms.

However, the offer was expanded very quickly and non-members can also distribute their software via APC&TCP.

The computer club has not been around for a long time, but APC&TCP is still active.
There are still new software titles such as Roadshow, CygnusEd, DigiBooster released and also new updates are being worked on.

APC&TCP is also present in the merchandising market and has been publishing stickers, mousepads, posters and more for years.

And, of course, there is also the print magazine Amiga Future, which is almost 20 years old.

In the meantime, APC&TCP has published more than 200 products for the Amiga and hopefully become much more in the next few years.

We can not really celebrate. We simply lack in time.

You can find out more about the history of APC & TCP and the published products by visiting the following links:

We are looking for extra support in order to revise the full versions download area of the Amiga Future webpage.
In particular, to check whether all those full versions formats (ADF, IPF, WHDLoad, AGA, CD releases, etc.) are complete.
In addition, a short description, in 2 sentences or less, about each of their system requirements and some screenshots need to be created.
If you want to help us, then please send us an email.
