A2000 motherboard in E-ATX form factor: Amiga-2000-ATX
'Amiga-2000-ATX' is a replica of the A2000 motherboard in revision 6.4, which unlike the original, uses the E-ATX form factor and thus fits into standard PC cases. Another goal during development was to replace components that are no longer available with newer alternatives wherever possible. The developer has commissioned a first prototype, so the design has not yet been finally tested. All documentation needed for production is available on Github under a free license.

FPGA accelerator card: Raptor 1200
In a video interview, Gunnar von Bhn of Apollo team announces a feature-reduced variant of the FPGA accelerator card Vampire. If everything would proceed well, he expects the first cards already next month. The new card, too, would be produced by Igor Majstorovic and be distributed exclusively via the Apollo shop.

The Raptor 1200 card aims at those customers interested in the CPU implementation only, i.e. the 68080 Apollo core, while wanting to keep using the AGA chipset. Thus the new card is just a pure accelerator card with 100 MIPS and 128 MB RAM, but without RTG and HDMI, IDE or SD card support. While thus being cheaper than a Vampire card, the main cost factor, a big FPGA chip, would remain, though. (snx)

AmigaOS 4: glSnoop records OpenGL ES 2.0 and Warp3D Nova calls
Juha "Capehill" Niemimaki has released version 1.0 RC1 of his graphics API tracing tool for AmigaOS 4 called 'glSnoop'.

Inspired by Apitrace, but completely written from scratch and specifically for AmigaOS 4, the tool records "the call count and duration of known OpenGL ES 2.0 and Warp3D Nova functions". It can be used as command line tool or via GUI and provides the folowing features:

  • Support ogles2.library version 3.1 and Warp3DNova.library 1.83
  • Decode enum parameters and taglists
  • Open GUI classes before use
  • Display W3DN_Clear parameters
  • Use 4 kilobyte log chunks in serial logging
  • Compile with GCC 10.2.
  • (dr) (Translation: (dr)

    New Preview-Videos: Beat'em Up 'Metro Siege', Run'n Gun 'DaemonClaw'
    Metro Siege is a side-scrolling beat'em up for up to two players that requires 512 KB of chip and Fast RAM each. DaemonClaw: Origins of Nnar is supposed to be a side-scrolling run and gun. Development was originally started on the Amiga, but is currently being developed on modern platforms using the "Construct 2" construction kit. The finished game will then be backported to the Amiga. The developer team responsible for both titles, BitBeamCannon, gives an insight into the current state of both projects in a new preview video. (cg) (Translation: (bb)
