One grab of my MorphOS (on an iMac G5 with the flat theme from Highlander).
That’s really nifty looking! I can’t run any retro/unusual OS as a main system.. Maybe Linux in a pinch but probably not.
Too entrenched with various pieces of software.
On the positive side I guess that takes the weight off the Amiga as it’s just a hobby.
Today I was procrastinating from my other procrastinating and decided to do a 2 colour WB2 style blue/grey backdrop for my A1200. I’m running a clone of my drive in UAE for now but it should look the same in real life. I figured I‘d keep it simple and save chip ram?
Did anyone ever make plushy boing balls? If so I need one.
Running in PAL Hires Laced 640x512.
How on earth would I go about getting RTG graphics mode on an A1200? I have one of those modern ram expansions which has no extra cpu, just some ram.. Hmm.
Second shot is to show what “Wangipad” is, it’s like a dock, and really nice and scriptable, but text only. I might switch to another dock.. but I love how minimal Wangipad is while allowing you to fit tons of entries.. (you can drag files directly into the app names and have it do things to the files.. Saves me a lot of going into dirwork or dopus!)
With eagleplayer sat in front of it.. is there any decent music player with a more standard UI that can go in a small, vertical orientation like that? delitracker and eagleplayer’s main WB style GUIs are masssiveeee. I’ve been spinning up the Amiga a lot to play old tracks, some of which are in really obscure formats that are really hard to play outside of the Amiga itself.
I enjoyed the early discussion about authenticity and wb1.x.. WB2 was really “my WB” as me and my bro got our A500+ running it.. Then my first totally personal machine was an A1200. It’s funny though as I consider my time with 1.x at my dad’s house really formative and it totally blew me away - I remembered exactly which games he had.. hilariously last time I spoke to him he didn’t even remember having owned an Amiga.
(he was generally more of an Acorn guy, and I’m still not entirely sure he believes me, which is pretty frustrating! Argh!)
