Little brother wants to play too!
Three years ago was the start of the development of the Sonnet PPC PCI card driver for the Amiga. It has been developed for the Mediator for the big box Amigas, the A4000(T) and A3000(T). The first few videos and pictures were showing quite simple programs ...

Power in Diversity
A while back, well actually June 2015 or around there, I should a picture of a PMC2PCI card. Since then I have been scouring the Internet for suitable PMC cards. Tried a bunch of them, but none of them worked. Then I got some help from an expert in PMC card...

Quake 3 on the Sonnet
Lately, there has been a resurgence of porting of games to WarpOS and Quake 3 is one of them. This port was done by CowCat. Still in alpha, but it definitely has potential. Sadly, this phone has a worse camera than my previous one. Also, playing with the ke...

Testing ReWarp on an Amiga X5000
Lately, I've seen multiple posting regarding ReWarp and why the development has stopped. The truth is that it all seems to work fine, except with Warp3D. Also, some sound drivers give problems on the Sam machines, but the main problem is 3D. I am at the mom...

Further developments...
Now with sound :-) Some glitches here and there and a annoying mouse pointer in the way, but it's getting there. I also notice I need to silence my A3000UX PSU one of these days.

Some developments....
There has been a little movement on the WarpOS front as of late. Cowcat, who did a great job the last few years on Quake2 and BlitzQuake now tried his hands on Hexen II. Here is the result: Sound needs an overhaul and I guess I need a better camera, but for...

SIMD for classic Amigas
As you all of course know by now, Sonnet cards are rather hard to be found. Even more rare is to find a Sonnet Crescendo 7200 G4. There were a few for sale when I started this project over 2 years ago, but they wouldn't ship to Europe. Since then, it has dr...

As said in the previous post, the last update made it possible for more demos to run. Here's one from that OTHER ppc solution back in the days: PowerUP from Phase 5. The demo called Glare is from the widely known PPC demo group Mad Wizards. The video doesn'...
