As I said I got a s/hand Amiga 2000, just to play the games, it reckoned that I could get on the 'net, ha, sure, it was one megabyte!, it came with around 300 floppies for games, by the time I'd ditched all the duplicates & duds I was still left with approx 100, among them was a Dr Who, as you placed him into the police box, it went to another screen where you battled more monsters, it was great in it's own way, six months after I sold it all on, someone in the paper offered 50 for that one game, arrrggghhh!, me getting someone to beat me over the head >>

Yeah, the Amiga's I remember too.... I liked the sid player on the Commadore only for the fact the synthesizer was really cool for it's time.

Back then the sid player was a media player for sound files. I liked the little band in the background jamming to the music, with the drummer head banging and his drum sticks flipping in the air. (it was funny) :P

Well done Mick, which one, but can you get the the games?, mine were sold with the Amiga, otherwise you could have had them for nothing.

Ive got about 1500 games in .asf format from my emulator. So i just need to transfer them back to floppy disk (got a load with the amiga)
It's an amiga 600, was gonna get the 1200 but i havent the room. The 600 is nice and compact. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amiga_600
