No lag when running the sort of software they were really designed for.. DPaint, PPaint, etc at faster/lower resolutions, even with pressure working nicely, its as responsive as the mouse. But without RTG - photogenics and ArtEffect have to be ran at HighRes-Laced for the UIs to even fit on screen + and they add a ton of delay on my 030 because it can't keep up with the way more complex brush engines. ArtEffect is almost like running Corel Painter or something though so it's not really a surprise it can't keep up.
I think you missed the point.BloodyCactus wrote: ↑Tue May 04, 2021 5:01 pmwell the A1K expectes a 'tick' at 50hz/60hz from the PSU. so its not so simple to just throw out the psu unless you have a tick circuit replacement as well.
What part of the PiStorm isn't emulation? Also, unless you're ready to desolder the USB and Ethernet ports, you need a Model A and not the vastly more common Model B.The Last Coder wrote: ↑Sun May 09, 2021 9:13 pmWith a Pi storm, and one of a number of Pi's I bought and never got around to using fully (and lets face it, how many of us have a few of those still lying around), I can now supercharge my Miggy, and make it the dream Amiga I always wanted. I don't care if it's merely a novelty it'll still make me smile and potentially opens a up a few use cases that would have been too slow or impossible. The thing is there's something about mucking around with my Amiga 1000 that is lost via emulation. Emulation just feels cheap, and like cheating, and doesn't make me want to play around with Amiga software. Your expectation is altered by emulation somehow and something always feels off. The Amiga for me these days is about about the nostalgia and remembrance of the good feelings I had in my youth. It's not about doing anything particularly useful. At least if I'm clunking away on the original hardware, no matter the illusion powering it underneath, it feels like fun again.
It'd be like kitting up a vintage car you drive on the weekends, and if there was such a thing as cheaply and unobtrusively klunking on an electric engine in the trunk/boot for more power I gladly would. It's like you're still driving your vintage car, and how that makes you feel, and now enjoy much more power on the road.
I'm not saying it's not emulation, I'm saying I don't care. To me at lease it feels a little like saying that if I get an artificial heart, I stop being human. If it quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck....it's now Superduck. If it just quacks like a duck on the other hand.... not so interesting.What part of the PiStorm isn't emulation?
You can use a riser off the Pi's IO ports as in one of the first videos. I'm told there's likely to be headroom in the A1000 case at least.Also, unless you're ready to desolder the USB and Ethernet ports, you need a Model A and not the vastly more common Model B.
I was intrigued by that. I would make my 1000 (first love, you know) my daily driver if I could easily soup it up in a non-destructive way, which Chris seems to do. I don't game so I can live with 512k of chip RAM.
