This post goes out to Mike J and Jim Drew and Anyone else in the FPGA Arcade community that has contributed to this awesome project. I can't thank you enough on how much joy this has brought me. I initially had some issues setting this bad boy up. But also thanks to Marios Filos and various others I have managed to get it all up and running with my own core etc. I want to thank you all for bringing this project to life. Very much looking forward to the Daughter Board.

I recently got the Colecovision Core up and running the other day which I was very pleased with. Thanks to everyone that has helped. Stuart Johnson

Trying to boot using Kickstart 2.05.

However I'm unsure what to set the Ox40000,0x00F8000 or whatever they are numbers should be. I gather they are memory addresses. I have changed the kick rom to kick_25.rom but wasn't sure what they rest should be. Thanks for any assistance.

#ROM = kick.rom,0x40000,0x00F80000
#ROM = kick_13.rom,0x40000,0x00F80000
#ROM = kick_13.rom,0x40000,0x00FC0000
ROM = kick_31.rom,0x80000,0x00F80000

Sorry Mike had some pressing work issues to contend with.

So the fire button work in every case the left and right don't work at all in any game on the amiga sidethe up works in most case and down occasionally.

When I play Galaga (rom) it works great. But i'm using port one for up and down only ( for the adding of coins and start game )and port two (lower port) for left and right.

Been enjoying my FPGA Arcade immensely. However I seem to be having issues with my Joystick. I'm using a competition pro which seems to work fine with the Galaga core but with the Amiga I'm not having a lot of success. I thought it maybe the 5v 2.5 amp power supply so I swapped it for the molex connection with no change. A few other issues which are expected but this is my major concern right now. Thanks for your assistance.

Just got my FPGA arcade and so far so good. But like some of you i'm a little overwhelmed. My questions revolve around the folder structure and file names specifically the amiga and kickstarts. I have looked within the .ini file but to no avail and programming is definitely one of my forte's. I have the kickstarts from amiga forever do these need to be changed to another name and what is the folder they should be in or are they place within the root directory of the amiga folder. Thanks in advance. Also a big thank you to all of you whom were involved in the development of this project and bringing it to life. Thanks so much.

Just re read my post from Christmas Day programming is NOT one of my forte's ( should have stuck to the orange juice) hehehe . Anyway still going through the motions with lots of progress will post more when I have thing more permanetly setup.

Thanks Mike for your quick response and your amazing hard work. You guys are awesome.

Welcome Tom just got my FPGA Arcade on Saturday. I've waited awhile but now that I finally have one I'm very happy.

This is the European re-seller
http://amiga.amedia-computer.com/index. … /visu/3/9#

This is the American re-seller
http://www.cbmstuff.com/proddetail.php?prod=ReplayFull

There is a waiting list here in the US and I'm sure there is in Europe also.  I hope this helps a little.

Never got to mess with a TI but I did spend a little time on the Amstrad. This is an exciting time for retro computing as these FPGA's I think are a great replacement for the real thing.

Take car for now good luck acquiring a FPGA

I'm in Vermont and also lived in Flagstaff which wasn't too far from Lake Havasu which is where Jim Drew is located.

I grew up in Melbourne.

A little jealous that you guys have an Amiga expo in Adelaide. Which is awesome. I remember back in the day I had an Amiga 1000 and was eyeing the Phoenix board which was made in SA great days.

yes I couldn't agree more this is a very exciting times for the Amiga in my opinion. I check my email daily for some sort of info regarding the FPGA Arcade. But like you as soon as I get one I'll be itching for the Daughter board. Hahahaha.

Most people in the US don't even know of the Amiga yet they know the C64. I think Australia, UK and Europe embraced the Amiga a lot more than the US. That being said there are plenty of Amiga fans still around.

hey gotta go for now good to chat.

@retrohead - I'm still looking for an appropriate PPC Mac to install MorphOS on.  I'm planning to install AROS Vision on the FPGA Arcade Replay after I install Amiga OS 1.3, 3.1 and 3.9.  I've done a test install of 3.1, but I haven't done the final install yet.

Mind you, I don't want to start using it regularly until I've put it in a case - I have the box already, and it will be the coolest possible case for a Replay.  I won't spoil the surprise - I'll post photos when it's done smile


Looking forward to it.

As far as the MorphOS that can wait. i think since I set mine up a couple of years ago they have added quite a number of other Mac's to the list ( One's that are faster etc.)

The FPGA arcade in my opinion is a huge and exciting achievement in the Amiga community.

BTW what part of Australia are you in.

It would be able to run MorphOS as well, if it had PPC.  My AmigaOne X1000 can't do that.

I have stayed away from the X1000. Mind you if I had a couple grand too blow I would pick one up in a heart beat. :-)

However one of my work colleagues was kind enough to donate a mini mac which is running MorphOS which I quite like.

This guy's setup is awesome http://youtu.be/fmrvSGlczMA

MorphOS , OS 3.9 OS 4.0 &  OS 4.1 all in one throw in AROS and a couple of other OS's and you've got a smoking machine. This would be the way to go on the FPGA Arcade. Got my fingers crossed that Santa is going to be kind to us.

@loneHaranguer - Yes we as humans always want in this case I think I can classify it as a necessity. It will stop me going insane. :-) but in all seriousness I think the FPGA Arcade will be a huge boost to the Amiga community. With the power of the daughter board you will have a very powerful Amiga computer that people can also afford.
