Chip-RAM extension: ACE2 by Individual Computers
For a few weeks Individual Computers has been offering "ACE2". This extension adds two Megabyte Chip-Ram to most of the OCS/ECS-Amiga. Because the board contains two components which are not available any more - the 2MB ECS-Agnus-Chip and a PLCC84 adapter socket - the producer has chosen a "progressive pricing model": The lower the availability of ACE2 the more the price increases. The first price was 120 Euro meanwhile it costs about 130 Euro. The maximum price will be 170 Euro.

Hint of the editorial stuff: On the ACE2 a NTSC version of Agnus is used. This one can be switched between the PAL and NTSC mode but always starts in NTSC mode. Therefore this extension was mainly made for users with upgraded Amigas - while booting from disk under Kickstart 1.3 you cannot change the mode so easily. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Connecting old joysticks to the PC: Arananet Joystick adapter
The Spanish shop Arananet offers an adapter which connects a retro joystick to an USB port of a common PC. No additional drivers are needed because the adapter registers to the host PC as simple USB device. Autofire is supported (if your joysticks allow it). A Spanish review of the adapter you can find on "Commodore Spain". (cg) (Translation: dr)

Free hardware: Replica of daughter board of A4000
Recently two projects were dealing with the replica of the mainboard of the Amiga 4000. Now documents are available on Github which provide all information for the self-construction of the daughter board carrying the Zorro slots.

The board layout was "made from ground using the A4000 original schematics". Compared to the original the replica has not any ISA slots but a VGA connector "to use with a VGA metal bracket". (cg) (Translation: dr)

Case: Crowdfunding of Checkmate A1500 Plus announced
The Checkmate A1500 is a case for the Amiga 500 which transforms it into a desktop computer similar to the Amiga 2000 (amiga-news.de reported; a video about the historical backgrounds have been released two months ago). Stephen Jones has announced the crowdfunding of an updated edition of his product - on Tuesday 9 pm there will be a "launch party via live stream.

Besides the board of the Amiga 500/500+, the Checkmate-1500-Plus case will be also able to take an Amiga 600 or 1200 - or A-EON Technology's announced AmigaOne A1222 (Tabor), a Raspberry Pi or any other mainboard of the mini or micro-ATX format. Just like the original edition, a Riser card will provide a Zorro-II extension. (snx) (Translation: dr)
