Mig n Ziggy 2019

Mig n Ziggy hasn't been forgotten, a copper trick update showing what the C64 palette and Amiga copper tricks would look like.

If you have followed my blog about this game you will see that I have focused purely on the Commodore C64 colour palette.

I'm curious the idea of blending the C64 and Amiga hardware into an in-between state. 1:1 pixel ratio and copper effects. The copper effects by the way (for the moment) a gradient transitions only using the C64 colours.

This game, while on hold till ProXima3 is completed, I have thought about possibly using the Redpill engine if I can't find a coder. The platform I would like this to be available on is the Amiga 1000 (the very first Amiga machine), so I need to be mindful of memory usage.

The Making of Iridium - Game - Digital Book

The focus for the next 10 days or so is on Iridium Kickstarter, beginning in February. Our team (Bastich and Akira) have posted info of the game in one of the most popular and most positive Amiga forums out there.


I'll post some other insider teasers for my Patreons in the next posting :) In particular the large ships that have destructible elements and I little more about the team and of course some teaser Amiga graphics too. The Digital Book is one of the perks of the fundraiser.

X5000 - Bootscreen

The AmigaOne X5000 Bootscreen, could possibly make the source files available so people can see how it was created. Also could post other designs that got scrapped in favour of this one :)

This version (GIF) reduced from 1024x768 to 512x384

Amiga X5000 - LED Frontpanel Design

Before the Amiga X5000 came out, I created this design concept showing various designs.
One day might investigate what it would take to create a custom LED panel for the X5000. 
Maybe one use of the XMOS Chip?

Rygar for the Amiga - Update 2019

Graeme Cowie has been working very hard on Rygar for the Amiga Platform.

He has not only created a great arcade conversion but an enhanced Amiga version using copper effects for the sky and water area. I helped with some testing of the colour cycling for the lava area. I'm very happy to say that my time spend on making those maps have not been wasted :)

Amazing work.
