Hello, today there are new games again. This time from Greenwood Entertainment Software. Unfortunately there are only 2 games. It is about Mag!!!, a business simulation based on computer magazines, but also very complex and with a gambling addiction factor. The 2nd game is a soccer manager called Ran Sat.1 Soccer Manager. A kind of commercial promotional game. Have lots of fun with it. We are looking for the CD32 variant of Mag !!! Whoever has, please send -> Thank you. Next we will upload all of the Ocean titles.

Almost 6000 MagicWB icons available as PNG
Published 17.10.2021 - 15:29 by osz
The GitHub user tanshoku has made a repository accessible that contains almost 6000 MagicWB icons in PNG format. These were obtained from the following source: https://grimore.org/amiga/standardised_ ... s#download And then converted from the info format common under AmigaOS to the PNG format. What these icons can be used for is up to each individual's creativity. For example, a surface of the preferred operating system that is visually adapted to the AmigaOS 3 with MagicWB extension would be conceivable. And here you can get the icons: https://grimore.org/amiga/standardised_ ... s#download
Amiga 500: 8 MB Fast RAM and IDE connection on the CPU socket
Published 17.10.2021 - 15:21 by osz
Maybe hobbyists still know the two projects ram68k and ide68k. The first project is an 8 MB Fast RAM expansion for the Amiga 500, the second an expansion that provides the Amiga 500 with an IDE port. Both expansions are installed in the CPU socket and then piggyback the CPU on top. Both expansions and CPU can also be combined to form a kind of burger.
Oleg Mishin probably thought that it could be done better and more compactly and with his A500_8MB_ide extension he created a solution that offers an IDE port and 8 MB Fast RAM with autoconfig function in one in the CPU socket of the Amiga 500.
All details and photos of the project are available on GitHub: https://github.com/OlegMishin/A500_8MB_ide
MediaVault version 1.4.1 is out
Published 17.10.2021 - 15:05 by osz
A new version of MediaVault was recently released for AmigaOS 4. If you are new to this application, here is a brief description: MediaVault is a kind of management system for audio and video sources on the Internet. These can be radio stations or podcasts, for example. Now you can search and filtered them in MediaVault. The application focuses solely on discovering and managing the media sources; playback can be redirected to your favorite player and enjoyed via it.
George Sokianos, the developer behind MediaVault, has now created an update with version 1.4.1 of his software. This now comes with a ready-made example script, which is supposed to facilitate the connection of the preferred player. A search was also implemented based on category and / or language, which makes it possible to find the latest podcasts. Furthermore, MediaVault now shows more details (bitrate and codec) about radio stations and is more user-friendly when it comes to retrieving a podcast which leads to an error.
Download and a detailed changelog can be found in the GitHub repository of the project: https://github.com/walkero-gr/mediavaul ... tag/v1.4.1
