About Sly Spy for the Amiga. I watched a video of the game on YouTube. The weird thing is that after many levels completed, all the sudden the score was reset to zero. Is that a bug, or why does it do that?

I wathced this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fmMSVop_Dw

 

If its not a bug should rules be to add the two scores to each other?

Hi

About your recent request:

Watchtower [Skill Medium]

When I tested, there were no level called Medium. I've added all 3 difficulties there was in the game. They all had strange names:?

 

Watchtower [Skill Level: Double Trouble] (Amiga)
Watchtower [Skill Level: Easy Does It] (Amiga)
Watchtower [Skill Level: I Need It Bad] (Amiga)
 
I suppose that Double Trouble is Normal?

okay.

It seems to be supported since 2011:

@GTibel: Just make sure hxc can play adf directly without converting an adf to hxc format. I believe there's new firmware coming for hxc they will support adf. But I'm not up to speed with hxc info. As I went down the gotek path

@ransom:

Thanks for the detailed info. It is indeed cheaper via your URL. And I also saw the HxC solution which also supports other machines. So maybe that one is more 'future proof' :)

I will look into it in detail during my upcoming holidays.

@GTibel:

Get this one, http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Amiga-USB-Gotek-Floppy-Emulator-ADF-Diskettenlaufwerk-500-600-1200-2000-3000-8GB-/261992684699?hash=item3cfffb1c9b

Just search for your favourite seller for the same item.

im pretty sure the gotek kits come with a small little black 8gb usb stick. I use 2 x 16GB  Sandisk usb sticks, so my whole ADF tosec set are on both usb sticks. Though selecting specific adf's from a huge list can sometimes take long when you scroll through the game list on the amiga after it boots with gotek. You can either;

A. Select a game and save it to ID slot on your Gotek, then you just select that number on your gotek and reset the amiga too boot instantly.

B. put the main games you want to play on the root of the usb stick away from many other 100's of games to save you time scrolling through game list when selecting a game through gotek menu on amiga.

I don't use Floppy discs anymore altough i still have plenty. The gotek is the way to go.

You can get updated gotek's with emulated floppy drive sounds, but that doesnt interest me, i kind of like the quite loading sounds.

YOu can also check HxC drive, I think they play more then adf like IPF but not 100% sure.

Installation. they just replace the old internal floppy drive. You WILL have to cut your plastic case on your amiga 500 a little so you can access the gotek swithc buttons and usb slot though. No big deal.

 

Hope I can convince you to get a gotek. If I knew how good they really are I would of bought one when they first come out.

Hey Ransom,

Nice setup.

I've recently bought a 2nd hand A500 with a box full of disks. But there are quite a lot of them not working anymore. I've also got a C64 with the Ultimate II solution. And this Gotek thing seems quite the same solution.

I've searched the internet a bit and came to this site:

http://amigastore.eu/en/323-usb-floppy-emulator-gotek.html

Is this a good store? I live in Europe by the way, so no US stores for me.

I guess I also require these (I can buy them at the same site):

  • Floppy drive data cable
  • Floppy drive power cable
  • Pre-configured USB Memory Stick

And then install it on the Amiga.

Any recommendations for that?

I've also read that it supports ADF. Does it also support IPF? Because I've replaced most of my ADF by IPF surprise. And I guess unzipped only.

Thanks in advance for the help.
