Indie Bundle

Over on itch.io, they've put together a bundle of games, and are putting all proceeds towards a Ukrainian donation.
If you want to help out, this is a nice way to do so.


Hello World

Spent all week playing and tweaking and fixing and breaking and upgrading the A600 bit by bit.
The drive's now functional, and all is good. The main issue now is that the system's ram is crapping out, with the weight of a Compact Flash driver, fat95, and more, all dragging it down to incredibly low levels.
It is only a 1Mb machine, after all.
I've ordered a 1Mb expansion card, but AmigaKit haven't dispatched it yet, which is slightly worrying.
Meanwhile, then, it's just a plain little Amiga sitting here with not much going on.
Everything (and I mean pretty much everything) seems to crash whilst trying to load, expecting a whole 1Mb space to be available, and crumbling when it realises it's only got about 600kb to play with.
Bah, humbug.

Still, at least Octamed works.. That thing's a beast!!!
