Episode 24 is live!



Last one for 2013, I check out a Motorola Powerstack II, a PowerPC PReP system.

To my knowledge, there is only one other video on Youtube about Windows NT on a PPC PReP system:

So I stopped posting my videos on here because I wasn't sure people were interested.

I stopped making videos for a while, after I found out I was getting divorced. That was back at the beginning of the year.

But I'm getting back in to it, starting with this:



Stay tuned for more!

Hey, nice Atari XEGS with the ink stain on the case there!

 

Don't suppose there's any Amiga CD32s around?

 

I'm starting to think about getting motivated with some of my projects - got something like 5 game conversions, enhancements, mods etc in various stages, some started over 5 years ago, most not touched for over 2.

Here I complain about PC Speaker emulation, but look at a way to improve it a bit.

Glad to see these coming out again :-D

 

I've never really mucked about with Dosbox before, so this was all new to me. Did notice some difference, but I've never played those games before, so wouldn't mind having a go of them with real hardware.

 

Have been planning a few retro builds (for me at least :-P), which I'll likely post about on here and Vogons when I get around to figuring out what it is I wan to build them for. Yours and a few others videos have really got me back interested in retro hardware (both PC and consoles), so I'd like to thank you for that!

 

Keep up the awesome work :-)

I owned mechwarrior 2 as a kid.... never did get to 'play' it. Every time I made a mech it came out over weight :P

and I was too young to understand that.

My prob was always heat. The most successful one could operate usefully unless you fired every weapon - then it blew it's arms off.

I made an elemental which was basically a time bomb: from startup, it just kept getting hotter until it went boom.

Apparently the loadout portion of the MW2 PC game was very true to the tabletop Battletech RPG, true to a fault actually. The turn-based nature of the tabletop game penalised certain strategies like gunboating, but those mechanisms don't translate to real-time, so some otherwise "legal" loadouts are totally OP in the PC game!

Also, here's some bonus content!!

There was supposed to be a repair video for my Famicom Disk System, but all it needed was some solder joints fixed, so I decided not to bother making a full length video and just show the thing working.

Here 'tis!

Part 3 of Episode 36 is live!

In this part of the Teradrive saga, I add a much-needed second ISA slot, and take a look at some of the unique graphics capabilities.

I get the sound card playing nicely with the sans-negative-12v Teradrive, and mix the outputs for added convenience.
