Subject: The History of Simulmondo (Dylan Dog, Tex, Diabolik) - Part II
Hello everyone, I've published the final part of my journey into Simulmondo, detailing its final years (1993-1998) and putting together many former developers' comments and thoughts about what could have been. This is Simulmondo, this was Simulmondo.
Subject: A500: routing the floppy power and ribbon cables around EMF shield
I took my A500's broken floppy drive out a while ago, and ran the ribbon and power cables out of the case's floppy aperture to use with an external Gotek.
I'm now installing the Gotek inside my case, so the cables are pressed up against the EMF shield. My question is: were these originally routed underneath the shield, or over the top (between the shield and the plastic case top)? I can't remember!
Kind-of related, I guess, should I just take the EMF shield off altogether? I see a lot of people seem to just do that. So far, I haven't.

Subject: Brown tint on A1200
submitted by /u/ubermick
Heya folks - so picked up an A1200 from the UK which has a bit of an issue. Seller mentioned that the display had a bit of a brown tint but was present only in some modes. Asked him about it, and he said that his research led him to believe it was the VIDEO-DAC chip VP101-3BA, a $5 part but required SMD soldering skills which he didn't have. That said, he said it was barely noticeable and only present in some modes in workbench so the repair wasn't even necessary unless I desperately wanted to use those. Fair enough, went ahead with it.
Arrived yesterday and fired it up, and I kinda feel like the "bit of a brown tint" was undersold a wee bit. Here's kickstart screen of the A1200 on the left, compared to that of the normal purple in my A500+ on the right.
So despite him saying that it wasn't really noticeable, erm... I kinda notice it. So was wondering if any of the resident tech gurus can offer insight into this - is it REALLY a $5 chip replacement, or something more? The board was recapped a few years ago, so don't THINK it's that.
And more to the point, any SMD-handy Amigans in the USA (I'm in Northern California) able to help out with a repair?

Subject: iBook G4 to Amiga (OSX -> MorphOS), how can I add games/software?
I just picked up my first G4 Mac and installed MorphOS on it (see link below), any idea how to add games/software to it? It can see CDs/USB drives, but I can't see the files. If anyone is familiar, I would really appreciate the help!
WARNING: this iBook screams like a banche on startup, headphone warning!
