Hi all

With a lot of reading and stubbiness I now have a Amithlon system that now has

Full 3D support
Sound
Internet
Usb onboard and on PCI card

Games working so far some need Eaudio device for sound that took a lot of reading and finding out.

Myst
Nemac
Quake
Doom
Napalm

Workbench addons working

magic menu
Tools daemon
Eaudio.device added to workbench startup folder so it runs every time.

Speed is amazing Doom and quake at 1024 x768 no problem could go higher but monitor I'm using is not that good.

Even played mp3 and doom at same time never done that on real hardware.




If anyone else is trying Amithlon and needs help feel free to PM me.

Interesting stuff, good to see you're getting something good from it.
I grappled with Amithlon a few years back, using an Abit KV-80 motherboard. Seemed to work perfectly fine 99% of the time, but would choke copying large chunks of data around, esp. going from cd->hd.

Never did get it stable, I think I'd need a different motherboard tbh. That's definitely something you'll want to test before you rely on it to keep anything important.
