Subject: Amiga Commodore A1500 - Current value
My father has given me the task of selling his old Commodore Amiga A1500 with loads of extra bits, but i'm really struggling to find the true value of it as there don't seem to be many around!
It's not likely to go on eBay due to the sheer weight of everything and the hassle of organising collection there, so I accept it may take a while to sell anyway.
I have attached images of everything he has to sell. Hopefully you can give me a rough idea at least!
His description is below:
Amiga A1500 in original box (box is rather tatty).
- Twin floppy drives plus hard drive.
- With Workbench 2 operating system. Operating system installed on first hard dgrive partition. Second hard drive partition has been reformatted to remove personal data along with programs which can be reinstalled as required.
- Original manuals and other guides.
- Commodore 1084s monitor in original box.
- Original Commodore mouse.
- All above have been tested and appear to be working normally.
- 2nd Naksha mouse and Voltmace Joystick (neither tested).
- Various extra leads which I collected over time and may be useful.
Originally used as a family computer and for video work and so includes a ColourPic Video Digitizer and Rocgen Plus genlock for video work. Both in original boxes with manuals and disks.
- The Works (Office Suite).
- Deluxe Paint 3.
- Adorage (Video Titleing software)
- SIM City.
- Their Finest hour.
- Battle Chess.
- Flight Simulator 2.
- A320 Airbus. (Flight Sim).
- Pioneer Plague.
- Premier Collection 2. (Mixed games).
- Goofy's Railway Express (for very young children).
Also included are copies of Amiga Shopper issues 1-45 plus the initial preview copy, and 12 odd copies including Amiga Format, Amiga Computing, CU Amiga and Amiga Pro. All are in good condition.
Many of the cover discs are supplied but have not checked to see what may be missing.
Many disks of shareware including games and utilities plus copies of other various items of software for which I no longer have the original disks, boxes or manuals.
Due to the weight and volume of all the above, it is not practical to ship, so will be collection only.

I think I know how to assign "logical names" if that's what you call it by NAME: but how are these saved on reboot. Where do I access this information?

Subject: LR-PUAE Kicks and WHDLoad
Hi, previously had this running but reflashed my SD card and now won't recognise my Kickstarts. I have retropie CRT Evo installed on SD and my ROMS/BIOS on SSD, every other system works apart from Amiga. I have the correct MD5 A1200 BIOS along with all the others 1.2,1.3 A600, CD32 and extended bios files and they're being copied to the WHDload Devs folder on starting a game. I've tried deleting the WHDload folder, it makes a new one, copies the roms over but still says it can't find the A1200 ROM and drops back to AROS. Does the location have to be on the SD card?! I can't remember putting any Kickstarts on there before and WHDLoad is making the folders on the SSD as well as copying across the Kickstarts, they're also the same ones that I used before.. it's just a strange one. Any ideas?

Subject: Can someone run this code and send me the results?
Hi All, I've written the code below for my assembly language book. I want to confirm Big Endian performance such as that found on the MC680X0 family. Can someone compile and run the following source code then copy / paste the results back here?
It would be appreciated.
The code is hosted on github here: https://github.com/pkivolowitz/asm_book/blob/main/section_3/endian/main.cpp

Subject: Platform game recommendations
Hello, I am very new to the Amiga and am after some platform game recommendations.
I have Gods, Magic Pockets, Edd the Duck and Allo Allo (a very mixed bag of quality...) so any you'd recommend to add to the collection would be great.
By the way... i do have a thing for bad games, so they don't have to be the best ones :P
Thanks in advance.

Subject: Will Amiga 1000 fit with most CRT monitors? If not what type do I need to look for?
My fellow Amiga enthusiasts, once again I am completely stumped and clueless. It appears after much debate and research it’s not gonna be easy to adapt the 1000 to a newer monitor. My plan is to go to the local electronics recycling center or thrift store and find a CRT monitor at a reasonable price. Before I once again blow money on something that doesn’t work again.
Subject: A500 INTERNAL FLOPPY DRIVE STOPS WORKING WHEN EXTERNAL FLOPPY DRIVE CONNECTED
Pretty much that, I'm in the process of restoring my old A500 rev 6a and for the most part things are working ok. I recently cleaned both drives and they both work independently andbfor a short time did work together. Then all of a sudden with both connected the internal floppy drive becomes non responsive, no disk seek. Disconnecting Hythe external drive didn't have an immediate effect and it takes a few per cycles for the internal drive to start working again.
Is it a power issue or something else? Has anyone seen this and what fixes it? What is the best way to test? TIA

Subject: Vintage (ALL Original) or Upgrade?
What's up fellow Amiganaughts! I have a question for the community. I repair/restore/upgrade Amigas. I am about to start listing these machines as I have a stockpile.
Here is my question to all of you: Would you rather have an Amiga "Vintage" experience with no acceleration, limited RAM, OCS Chipset @ 512KB, and floppy shuffling with no HD on early models?
Or Would you rather have your Amiga accelerated, loaded with RAM, Fat Agnus and Super Denise (1MB of Chip), a big HD, and generally anything that improves upon the stock performance and experience?
I am referring mostly to A1000s, A500s, A2000s, and A600s. Although I have CD32s, A1200s, and an A4000D that all are accelerated from 030s to 060s because the 32-bit Amigas are just better with expansion in my opinion.
Thanks in advance Amiga Fam!
