    larger, could accomodate impossible expansions, i remember how with a single card more it could emulate a 66 mhz pc.
    060 chipsets were faster but prone to too many incompatibilities and crashes.

    I remember some company looking into Motorola's Coldfie as potential cpu for accelerator card, but it was too incompatible with the 68k cpus to make it work.

    Do you guys know any more stuff like this? There's a ton of conversions to "8bit music" (it mostly means NES), I only found a couple examples like this one for Amiga/ProTracker.

    It looks like the lazy types will be able to Amiga easier now.

    Not that emulation is that difficult, but since it will run WHD load games, it will simplify setting up an Amiga HD image for those that want fast loading and no disk swapping.

    FS-UAE just works, I'm convinced most people who think it's difficult tried WIN-UAE.

    I will have to try it. I have used winUAE for a long time now, though it has eaten two copies of my original A1200 drive now. If a better option exists, I will give it a go.

    You might as well ask how many drops are in the ocean.



    This is not the one I remember from back then, as it uses fewer digitzed samples. There's also a version of "Personal Jesus" which uses longer samples, and suffers a bit as a result.

    And now for some true heresy: An Amstrad CPC... playing SiD-tunes!



    It's 100% accurate on some of the tracks, but you can hear it struggling in places, especially on Cybernoid 2.

    No commentary playthrough of the just released demo for the Amiga FPS "Dread". Played on hard skill, showing all secrets.

    Here is the article the video above refers to at the end - very interesting technical information about Another World:
    https://fabiensanglard.net/another_world_polygons/index.html

    And here another Making of video:

    I didn't know that the North American version "Out of this world" was slightly censored (mentioned right at the end of the video after the credits).
