Just to break up the Amiga related projects I’ve been working on lately, here’s a write-up of my Sega Naomi Cabinet restoration.
I’ve just created a page detailing some of the changes I made to my stock Amiga 600 to get it ready for the Vampire 600.
When the card arrives, I’ll cover the installation and setup in more detail.
Exciting times for Amiga owners!

I’ve started work on my Amiga 600 in preparation for the arrival of my Vampire 600 accelerator board.
This little board will upgrade the modest A600 to around 100x its original speed and performance. It also adds GFX modes with HDMI and AGA game support to the A600. Can’t wait for this one!
In the meantime I’ve installed Kickstart 3.1 rom and a CF HDD to the stock A600.
Just got another system that was on my wanted list for some time. The PC Engine, Interface Unit and CD-Rom2.
I’ve had a Duo console for a while but nothing beats the original pair, like the Megadrive and MegaCD; just looks so cool.
Its very hard to find one of these CD drives that works, and I’m lucky that this one does although the audio playback is skipping a bit. Still not bad when you think that its heading to 30 years old!
I’m planning to give this system a full servicing, new laser unit, capacitor kit and RGB video mod.
A good friend of mine has been busy playing with the Orange Pi board (a more powerful version of the Raspberry Pi). He’s set up a WordPress website actually hosted on the tiny computer, and is keeping a blog of his network and programming projects.
