Default eslapion and the free amiga give away!!!

Guys, I know there was some bad mouthing of eslapion and his amiga give away some time back but I wanted to add my 2 cents.

All I can say is he is one super stand up guy!!! I met up with him in Montreal a couple weeks ago to pick up my share of free amiga's which included a couple A1000's (with 256k ram expansion and a 512k side card ram expansion, keyboards and mice) and 3 x A500's complete with mice and power supplies and accessories (supra scsi hard drive, boxed commodore amiga modem, some other A500 expansion module never seen one before but cool none the less) and a C=64 with 1541 drive.

Have not had a chance to test everything (no time since my trip to Montreal, my father has become ill and been busy with familly)

I would have been able to take more but I also met up with a friend of his to strike a deal on a box amiga so needed the space for that in my trunk.

eslapion, you are one stand up guy and wanted to thank you very much for the free amiga's and setting me up with Rich for the A3000T!!! :-)

(Hopefully I can find some time to take a picture of everything and post it up here)

I'd say the (amazing diversity of) nature makes up for any remoteness in or of NZ =).

LOL, I keep missing these threads!

Thank you eslapion! What I wrote here still stands!

I was looking for the A2000 mobo for a long time... Now I've finally got the chance to fix my A2000. I ordered the 1MB Agnus from Vesalia and some other stuff from AmigaKit.

Has anyone got an ECS SuperDenise (8373) for sale at a very reasonable price? ;-)

You know, I can remember when a LOT of the Amiga community was like this. I am glad a few people still carry the torch.
We are lucky here, we still have a fairly active Amiga user group in the Washington D.C. area, with members that are prone to give their unused machines a good home.
Our old Annapolis Amiga user group may be coming back from the dead. Well have to wait & see.

You can actually use a normal Denise (8362) since it's pin-compatible with the 8373 while you are looking around for the Super one. I tried this with one of my Amigas and worked fine (as long as you don't need those enhanced graphics modes). I do have one I put on auction, but it has one pin that's half broken so probably may not be what you are looking for:

@amigaksi

I've already got the original Denise chip. I do not particularely care about ECS modes (such as superhires, productivity etc), but I want to be able to switch between NTSC and PAL because lots of games don't run in NTSC by default. I do not remember if I require a SuperDenise for the video mode to be software switchable or is the 1MB Agnus alone enough?

1 (or 2)MB Agnus is enough for PAL/NTSC-switching.

I am not familiar with how the software switches between NTSC and PAL. I just use an Amiga 1200 that I bought from UK for software that does not run properly on NTSC Amigas. I do not think that a software solution would work in general as many games that I have directly program the hardware for maximum performance and efficiency similar to what MPDOS does as shown in picture in this listing:
