Minimig! Do you know anything about it?

Postby Kostas O » Sun Mar 01, 2009 7:19 pm

Probably you are aware of this FPGA project
http://home.hetnet.nl/~weeren001/
There is a lot you can find out in the net about it
http://www.minimig.net/
http://www.loriano.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/review_of_the_minimig_v1.htm
to mention a couple of sites.
Acube Systems (http://www.acube-systems.biz/eng/minimig.php) in Italy have produced and selling them (Amigakit is a reseller).
Anyway what troubles me is something i've read somewhere in the net about it running something like 15% faster than the A500.
Do you know if this is true and how much do you thing this would affect KO gameplay.
Don't tell me 15% :lol: i know it won't be the same but i want to know if it will feel like an emulator or closer to the real thing (in other games as well).
Version 2 http://www.illuwatar.se/project_pages/minimig2/minimig.htm is also very promising and i think that this is the one that would be great to "replace" our Amigas. If that can ever happen :roll:

I think this is the guy that did version 2

Is he geeky enough or what? Our kind of guy!

Minimig is really an emulator, as it is a hardware version of UAE :-)
It is also open source, which means anyone could produce it.
I suppose Ko2 would play perfectly...
I think I read somewhere they'll make a new version, but I'm not sure.
If you are patient, wait for the Natami (http://www.natami.net).
Click here and here.

The Natami project really looks great and i 've kept an eye on it for a while.
However it would be an overkill for my needs (mainly KO and retro gaming).
Not to mention that the patience required seems a lot!
I wouldn't count on it hitting mass production so that it has a reasonable price.
Hopefully the guys there will prove me wrong.
