I'm playing with AI upscaling and re-rendering some of the old Amiga game art. What do you think?
Subject: Captive - how do you deal with the massive levels and finding your way around?
In short - played it back in the day and it was possibly a bit too complex for me at the time (made it to level 3 but was playing too cowardly & scared of the next enemy as I didn't spec my team up well); found a basic playthrough online, called everyone Jonathan for max stats, and within a couple of hours made it to level 5 with 2 x shield Dev Scapes/Optics (or whatever they are called), 1 x Anti Gravity (so you can flip and hit low enemies) and all 4 droids have upgraded Copper chests + are armed with Hunter - Super grade rifles. In short I'm comfortable.
The only problem I now have is the size of the damn levels. Found 2 x Planet Probes on 3, another 2 on 4 (but am only using 1 at a time as I've told the bases get more difficult in order so ended up throwing one away). In 5 and it seems like the first really big level? Found the generators all the way out to the right and down the lift from the first room (like way way out from the entrance). Went back left from that first main room and found the first white coat scientist and password (but it didn't work for the nearby terminal). This makes me think there has to be 2 x probes in level 5 as well? (Or otherwise what's the password for). Now I'm just trying to find the other terminal.
Is there any easy/sensible way of finding your way around the bases except for brute force trial and error (e.g. Big room and systematically go through every exit from it and then pick every branch from that exit - if that makes sense?).
Subject: Issues with the Amiga 500.

Hi everyone. I bought an Amiga 500 a couple of months ago... When I got it, everything worked fine. After a couple of days, the screen got yellow tinted (probably because of the DB9 on my 1084S monitor). Besides that, everything worked fine. If I bent the video cable connected to my DB9, the screen would have normal colors again. A couple of days later, the screen got green tinted. If I bent the cable, the screen would become yellow tinted. A couple of days ago (I didn't power on my Amiga for a while), the same issue was appearing, but suddenly, I wasn't receiving anything on the screen. When I tried to fix it today, my Amiga's drive wasn't doing anything anymore. Also, I'm not receiving anything on the screen (just like yesterday). Check the pics below... How can I fix this?

I'm trying to bring one of these old units back from the dead & I need a new power supply. I'm looking for a pinout diagram for the power DIN plug that connects to the back of the drive & thought there might be someone on here with the tech Knowledge to help.
