Great work from Frank Menzel :)  Nice to see more work contributing towards Amiga's Future :)

This test is to show what performance boost can bring a Radeon HD card on a Sam440 with PCI bus. A Radeon HD card can increase the performance extreme and is prepared for the upcoming Warp3D drivers and Gallium3D in future.

WarbladeMKii and the Amiga







When working on this project, Amiga always comes back.Those days, pushing pixels around on an Amiga 1200. 

I've lost endless files I wish still I had created on the Amiga (especially the ones drawn in overscan mode (Isometric, colour cycling). 
This story comes from a File I was building in Lightwave. Tried importing the 3d render file from the Amiga floppy disc. 
Today, I brought this one back to life again :)
So while I don't have an Amiga, it still inspires me.

Thankyou to Jim Sachs, and many, many others.

Warblade is a galaga type arcade shoot'em up game that has gotten quite popular on PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad.

Amiga Workbench Version 1.0 - 2012 concept

How would recreate the "Amiga" "Workbench version 1.0" GUI if you created it today / 2012 ?
Amiga Workbench Version 1.0 - 2012


One of the attractions of early Amiga Workbench GUI designs was the roll-over action over icons, when the cursor is over an icon, the second icon sprite would replace the normal icon state, suggesting a possible clue to what the clicked on icon was going to do.  This became quite useful for some applications such as the Zip/Archive icon/application. Imagine an open/closing clamp for different icon states or a bunch of files visually showing compression. 

Change the icons behaviour:
(old version:  Action: Roll-over mouse cursor over icon, icon had a second frame/state which usually changed. Early Amiga GUI's had icons that inverted the colour palette.




new versionthe roleover state has two options:

1) roll-over creates 1/2/4 pixel outline  (open outline editor to create custom outline (move,redraw,colour))

2) roll-over has ability for custom icon (either 1 frame or up to 3.)

recommendation:
- Outline all icons when user (rolls-over) icon with mouse cursor. 
- Extra states will reduce excessive graphics in the GUI.

Deluxe Paint

As an Amiga fan, many years ago I used Deluxe paint from Electronic Arts.

Today I still dream that one day, someone, somewhere will create Deluxe Paint for the Amiga.
