AMOS Controlled Quiz Buzzer System

Following on from my previous videos building a 4-player Quiz buzzer system, in this tutorial video we modify it to connect it to the AMIGAs serial port and program AMOS to be the quiz master!

This game makes use of the powerful AMOS "Every" command to monitor the serial port in the background


One Year Later - DrawBridge and WinUAE - A Look Back

It's been one year since releasing the magic that allowed real physical disk access within WinUAE (and Amiberry)!

In this video I look back on how all of this happened in a rough timeline including some unseen video footage, a short explanation about why this was so difficult, and also look to the future too.

Join me as I guide you on this incredible journey...


Wireless Quiz Buzzer System (nRF24L01)

I show you how to make a wireless quiz buzzer system using nRF24L01 modules and Arduino's. The buzzers are totally self-contained including a built in lithium battery with charger. The main controller, also wireless, now has the option to disable buttons from people who have already guessed an answer and has a 3.5" socket to connect the audio output to an external amp


Arduino Quiz Buzzer System - Stop the Fighting over Who Answered First!

So, you're running a quiz, but you always fight over who answered first!? Well, in this video we build a simple quiz buzzer system based around an Arduino that includes different sound effects for each button pressed! That age old fight, is now over...

Unsung Heroes: featuring Dimitris Panokostas aka MiDWaN, creator of Amiberry, the Amiga emulator for the Raspberry Pi and other operating systems.


How to program Wordle in AMOS on the AMIGA - Tutorial!

In this AMOS (Amiga) Tutorial we learn to put together the popular Wordle game. This tutorial is suitable for beginners. You may want to be ready with the pause button as I'll be going quite fast!


Real Floppy Disk Drive for the MiSTer FPGA - Current Progress

This week I thought I'd bring you an update on where I'm at with supporting floppy disks for cores like the Amiga (minimig) of the MiSTer FPGA.


Did I just create life? Crazy AI Robots!

In this video I'll show you the basics of AI (Artifical Intellegence) using Neural Networks. We'll then learn to teach them by evolving them using Genetic Algorithms and finally put them into several problems to see if they can solve them.


Using a Retro Joystick on Modern Systems

In this video I show how to make an adapter so these common DB9 style joysticks can be connected to a modern PC via USB


Can I Make My Own 3D Printed Retro Joystick?

In this video I attempt to 3D print and build my own retro-style joystick for my Amiga. With slightly different wiring it would also work on many other systems.
