Internet News   Internet News : PPC Demo Database
   posted by reflect on 21-Jul-2003 21:02:34 (1472 reads)
The Amiga PPC Demo Database!

For a long time now, we've collected demos and tested them. We felt that this was something that the PPC users were lacking - ONE place to find them all, including a text with requirements to make it work.


Look no further, this is the ultimate P P C D E M O D A T A B A S E

Its a nice resource, but ideally could use some screnshots much like ADA already does.

we're working on that part... enhancing the user experience. We'll add screenshots and make it easier to see what you want to download... ie, the different requirements of the demos. However, since that will take time, we decided to get the site online and work in the shadows, so to speak.. let the people enjoy the nice demos that is out there for PPC :)

thanks for the feedback, both of you :)

The demo "ppc-amnesty-dogstardescends-xxx-xxx.lzx is not a PPC demo btw.

Its 68K only, ideally needing an 060. Add to that the fact it doesn't work here.

I have CSPPC 233/060 combo with 112MB ram. This demo starts loading, gets a little way then pops up a requester saying it cannot allocate 48K of mem.

Booting with no startup gets a little further before it complains it cannot allocate 512K ram. Given there is still 1.7MB chip and over 100MB fast free, its quite frankly talking rubbish, and is broken
