Introducing DiskFlashback - Retro Floppy Disk Software for Windows!

Back in 2017 when I created Drawbridge, I very much wanted to create what I'm releasing in this video.

Introducing DiskFlashback, a Windows application that not only lets you mount Amiga, Atari and PC floppy disk images as real drive letters, but also lets you mount your *real* DrawBridge, Greaswewazle or Supercard Pro too.

Amiga BREAK! - The Poor Persons Action Replay? and How Can I Improve It?

I picked this up a while back, and was curious exactly what it could achieve for such a simple looking device.

Attached to it is a variable resistor and a switch, and with that you can freeze and selectively slow down games playing. But how does it work? And can we improve it?

AMIGA Virus Protector - But does it work?

I have to admit, this video didn’t actually go quite to plan. I had a bit of a brainwave after I'd finished editing it and ended up having to create another section on the end, and it was WELL WORTH IT!

A while back, I discovered a device that you could plug into the external floppy drive port of your Amiga that supposedly would protect any disk inserted from becoming infected with boot block or boot sector viruses.

Curious how such a simple device could achieve this feat I decided to put it to the test.... and wow, was I surprised...

How Bunny’s "Boing Ball" Bounty, the New AMIGA Speed-Run Challenge Game was made

Last year I brought you the AMIGA game Hop to the Top, which had a slightly darker sequel around Halloween.

This year I bring you Bunny’s "Boing Ball" Bounty, a speed-run challenge where you need to collect the eggs as quickly as possible.

Can the PowerShark Protect Your Amiga? Full Test and Review

In this video I'm going to test out the PowerShark, the new USB-C power supply for the Amiga 500, 600 and 1200.

I'm going to put it through a gruling array of tests to see how it handles them, and how this could help protect your Amiga from any power supply damage.

MAGIC Internet Access on my #Amiga! - But How!?

In this video I'll throw the Plipbox out the window... but somehow my Amiga 500 *still* has Internet access.... and so does my Amiga 2000... but how!?

Internet Enabled Amiga - Lets Build a PlipBox!

In this video I'll show you how I built my own PlipBox adapter for my Amiga 2000 to experiment with it on the Internet.

Amiga 2000 Full 2MB ECS Upgrade Mod (A500 compatible)

In this video I'll show you how I not only added 1MB of chip ram to my Amiga 2000 to bring it to 2MB, but also completed the upgrade to be a complete ECS system!

MiSTer Floppy 2024 - Minimig Core Floppy Drive Update

In this video I want to show you the current progress with the MiSTer floppy board I've designed, along with the changes to the MiSTer FPGA Minimig core I've made to allow real floppy disks to be used.

I've successfully gotten reading and writing working, and most exciting of all, it works with multiple drives at once!

A Year in Montages - It's Been a Fun Year!

2023 has been such a fun year, with so many amazing Amiga related videos and a bit of electronics thrown in too, and then there was the special Thomas Middleditch experience that I just didn't expect.

All in all its been fantastic and I wanted to share some of my favourite montages. This included footage from Thomas Middleditch's Twitch channel as his reactions are so totally worth it.
