Ive been out of the scene for oh about 25 years.. 🙂
But always kept coming back here for gossip and have been following FPGA Arcade for a few years.
I have HEAPS of original Amiga’s which I purchased last year and am slowly selling, however I plan on keeping one.
It will be an A1200 with 030 accelerator with some extra ram. I have a brand new keyboard (amikit) and have installed a CF hard drive.
I also backed the new case thing on KickStarter, so the Amiga will soon have a brand new case. The current one is quite good but does have a few broken clips.
I also have 3.1 roms.
Anyway, my question is this..
I want to setup the amiga in the house to play the odd retro game with my kids.. Think Lemmings etc.
Im trying to decide if I should go for emulated floppy via Gotek / the HxC OR if I should be getting WHDLoad.
I never used WHDLoad before, but it does sound like a good idea.
I could obviously go for both, to have the best flexability, but can anyone tell me just how good/ easy/ fast WHDLoad makes things?
Money is no option, as I already have the gear and wouldnt mind paying for WHDLoad if its worth it over using emulated floppy.
P.S I would rather play 100% originals rather than cracked versions – Not that it probably matters.
