I was playing a lot of scrolling shooters and also playing with productivity software, DPaint, Imagine, Scala and Wordsworth in particular. I say playing because all my Amiga usage was for fun.

Breaking in my new A1200. Also, wondering why my new 1942 monitor won't do 800x600 as advertised.

Working at the music of powder and at my animation NOLW - the night of the living wrecks on my a500 using dpaint IV, three megs of ram and two floppy drives - at the end was assembled in the a4000 of a friend of mine using scala for the pixel art expo that winter (placed 2nd) and the bit.movie competition (placed 1st)...

I was messing around with Deluxe Paint III and DigiPaint, making games with SEUCK, learning how to use a hex editor, and just generally tinkering around.
By that time, I was gaming mostly on consoles, and Amiga software was hard to come by in my area, so I barely used my A500 for games any more.

In 1994 i purchased A1200 (switched from ZX Spectrum 128k/C64 scene), learned all audio stuff and soon started to work with some demo groups and game development teams.

I was also breaking in the A1200 in 1994 that I got in October 1993. I had sold my A500 off in 1993 but missed the camouflage paint treatment I gave that machine. I should have done the same thing to the A1200.

IIRC, that was the year I got my A500HD+ and my Rev 8 mobo. At the time I was still heavily programming on my C64/128, so the 500 got used mostly as a games, music, and Internet (well, GEnie and BBS) machine. I was playing with OctaMED to learn tracking, and some sound editor to piece together wav files. That and I would take wav rips of CDs from my friend's PC and convert them to compressed IFFs. I'm pretty certain at the time I was still using Workbench 1.3 as I recall my 2.04 and 3.1 days came after I moved into my first apartment.

in 1994 the commodore died and my a500 from 1988 was showing it's age and no new games... so i put it in the attic(where it died). didn't bother with buying an a1200 without hd, b1230+ram and a special monitor from microvitec. or buy an a4000 with graphic card etc etc... it was just insane expensive and commodore had just died, so there was no reason to waste all that money for nothing. amiga the most advanced computer in the world, had failed it was over. that was my thoughts in the year of 1994.

I was about 2/3 of the way through writing an Amiga version of the "Stellar Conquest" board game. Then Commodore went bankrupt, and I was making money writing software for PCs and embedded systems, so the Amiga went into the closet.

@persia,

Yes a true Mac fanboy straight from the start. Even an Amiga couldn't convince him that the Mac was a lesser computer.

Well it is what it is and that all that it is.

Actually just needed to use Canvas and eggplant was a way to do it. Pretty much put aside MacOS after that until Tiger...

Emplant had that distinct Amiga software quality, never sure whether it would work, a useless hardware dongle that took up a slot and a developer who lived in an alternate reality world....
