    Thread: What made you leave the Amiga scene?

    Hmmmm.. never heard about that one. Then again, I was never a big Trekkie anyhoo. Although I will confess that I did purchase.. what was it again.. Star Trek: Klingon Academy or something like that and enjoyed the heck out of that one. Got that one after I got Total War.. aaaaah.. that was a good summer.

    ..what? I never abandoned the Amiga! Here to the end!
    I still use my Amiga on a daily basis!

    Bah! It looks like they installed just fine on both Vista and XP, however, much to my chagrin you require a joystick to even be able to start the game. Man!

    You mean you don't have a joystick? I have my trusty Amiga Competition Pro plugged into my PC at all times (via a USB convertor). Works great too.

    I used to have one, but I lost it during a move. Well.. this gives me an excuse to get a new one.

    The Xbox 360 wired controller works perfectly with XP and Vista and is one part of the 360 that M$ actually designed well, although Sega did originally give them a hand designing the original Xbox controller, based on the Sega Dreamcast one, so it was bound to be quite good.

    I finally got around to getting a wired 360 controller and it works like a charm. Very nice! The button arrangement on TIE Fighter didn't make any sense to me at all. Is there any way to change that other than in the game? (I didn't see any obvious way of changing that in game at all)

    Well i dunno about the actual amiga, But i moved from Australia to Canada and its taken me about 5 months to get back to thinking about this site. Been here a long time and dont post often enough. I need to get motivated to do so. Back when Classicamiga started to now, I think this site rocks.

    Hi there Vangar! A bit off-topic perhaps, but why did you move to Canada? Is it something work related?

    I voted was a mistake and I soon came back!

    Oh well, you know... in late 1996 my best gaming friend got himself a PSX so we became huge fans of it, then in January of 1997 I got meself one too and the madness started. Amiga went sitting on my desk and waiting for better times.
    Then in December of 1998 I got meself a PC (Celeron 333 with a shitty ATI card that couldn't run Carmageddon 2 at an enjoyable frame rate), around the year 2000 I got me very own dial up modem and spent way-too-much-cash on every day irc.
    Finally, around 2002 I think, I discovered that Amiga is still alive and kicking and there are a few great portals in the Internet.
    Thanks to a good new friend from I managed to get a HD working with my A600, copied almost all of the ~350 floppies to it and never looked back at a disk drive.
