This high quality, low cost memory expansion doubles your Commodore Amiga 500 computer's memory. Extra memory is essential for many games which require 1MB of RAM to work.

Installation is straight forward process: simply slot the A500 memory expansion into the trapdoor slot. The trapdoor bay is covered by a small plastic door underneath the Commodore Amiga 500 computer which can be easily levered open. There is no need to unscrew, open or disassemble your computer.

Memory expansion features Real Time Clock header to install optional Real Time Clock module: available installed at special price below or available separately here.

Features:
0.5MB RAM to boost total system memory to 1MB
Memory auto configures with no drivers required
Header for optional Real Time Clock module: available installed at special price
LK1 jumper on board: used for enabling 1MB Chip RAM modifications (Agnus 8372 or higher required).
Two-page colour manual included

Commodore Amiga 500 Plus users: we have produced a separate 1MB memory expansion available here

Revision 2, updated from our original 2007 product design. Fully tested on revision 5 and 6A motherboards.

This product is manufactured by Amiga Kit offering high quality upgrades for your Amiga computer at good value, low prices. Copyright 2007-2019 AmigaKit Ltd.

hardware Classic   A4000 4-Device IDE Interface From Amiga Kit
  hardware Classic posted by amigakit on 12-May-2019 11:36:16 (307 reads)


A4000 4-Device IDE interface - new revision 3

Compatible with the Commodore Amiga 4000 Desktop or A4000T.

The standard Commodore Amiga 4000 is supplied with a single IDE connector as standard allowing only two IDE devices to be connected. This interface overcomes this factory limitation by providing two IDE connectors. Each IDE interface allows two devices so with this adapter a total of up to 4x IDE devices is possible.

Features 2x 40-pin IDE connectors (primary/secondary) and 1x 40-pin IDE connector to link to original Amiga motherboard IDE interface.

The 40-way (3.5") IDE cable to connect this adapter to the Amiga motherboard IDE connector can be optionally added below at various lengths.

To use the secondary port, third party software such as IDEFIX software package should be installed.

software OS4   VIM 8.1 with MUI GUI out now and for AmigaOS4!
  software OS4 posted by kas1e on 3-May-2019 18:57:28 (1053 reads)
What is it ? ...

Vim is a highly configurable text editor built to make creating and changing any kind of text very efficient. Vim is rock stable and is continuously being developed to become even better. Among its features are:

* persistent, multi-level undo tree
* extensive plugin system
* support for hundreds of programming languages and file formats
* powerful search and replace
* integrates with many tools

Please note that this is not a straight port of the upstream version. It includes a full MUI GUI with most of the bells and whistles found in Vim on any of the major platforms.

News   APC&TCP is on vacation
  News posted by AndreasM on 3-May-2019 14:20:22 (310 reads)
From May 6th to 29th, APC & TCP and the Amiga Future are on vacation.

During this time we can not answer any emails.
In extremely urgent cases, we are conditionally reachable via WhatsApp and Messenger.

All emails and orders will of course be processed as soon as possible after our vacation.
But please have understanding that it may take some days.
Attention! Also download orders (eg Roadshow) must be unlocked by us by hand. Thus, the downloads are available only after our vacation.

If everything works out perfectly we have a little surprise for you after our holiday.

Antstream Retro Gaming Reborn

I haven't had a deep dig on this, but there don't seem to be a huge amount of info on what they are using to emulate the various systems.

I assume they require a license to run an online emulator (for the Amiga ROM's)?
