Subject: Have an Amiga 1200 since the 90's but not sure what to do with it
Got it back in the early 1990s. Loved that thing while it helped me cope (games, Scala, SASC) with parents' (really nasty) divorce and aftermath for a good 6+ years before I switched over to a PC and haven't done anything with it since. Has a 68030 Cobra accelerator and 500MB HDD (what I remember without opening it up).
Original FDD died and I don't think I have a working replacement. No PSU either. Case damage is on the FDD ejector bridge (believe this to be common).
Any ideas? Don't want to keep it as I've moved on (and using it reminds me of the bad as much as the good), but given what it's done for me, I don't want to just throw it out.

Subject: Trying to remember a vertical shooter
I grew up with the A500, A500+ and 1200, and played lots of games on them. With the a500 mini coming out it's made me think back, and I've been making a list of games I used to enjoy.
There's one game I've never been able to remember properly, and I may only have had a demo of it. I'm pretty sure the disk label was black and white split diagonally, with a circle in the middle in mirrored black and in white.
It was a top down scrolling shooter like SWIV, but more sci-fi, fairly light and colourful but the main thing i remember is you could shoot out train wagons and the engine would carry on, like SWIV. I think buildings were often drawn like pyramids. You were in some kind of jet/spaceship style thing that may have had red wings.
I feel like it began with a Q, but haven't found anything like it.
Does anyone else remember this?
Subject: Another what's that game post...
I am pretty sure that this was a PD game of some kind, no idea if it came on a coverdisk or some PD collection I bought from Bus Stop way back in the day.
It was a futuristic car/tank game, the graphics were all wireframe. It was right mouse button for speed I believe and possible left for shoot. The text "Shoot the Speedy One" rings a bell too.
I'm struggling to remember much more about it. I guess graphically it was similar to Starfox on the SNES but not as detailed. You were definitely some sort of car or tank.
Subject: What is a reasonable price for a A1200 motherboard only?
Was just wondering what is a reasonable price to pay for an Amiga 1200 motherboard(motherboard only with metal shielding nothing else)? Is £200 too much? I could possibly buy a whole machine in box for that but I doubt seller would take £100(even then I think that is too much).
