Introducing Myself
« on: December 04, 2015, 01:48:40 PM »

Hello everyone  :),
    I'd just like to introduce myself. My first system was a 'heavy sixer' Atari VCS given to me in 1988, followed by a ZX Spectrum 48k+. I then got stuck with an out-of-date system through the 16/32-bit 90's, until a friend sympathised and sold me an A500 that he had done a bodge-job of trying to put into a PC tower case (with sellotape! Arrrgghh Dr Frankenstein!). After that I had a PS One and a variety of Windows systems.

I got into retro computing around 2012, and last year started making retro-style games on the ZX Spectrum. I'm now looking for other vintage platforms to make software for and am very interested in AMOS for the Amiga as it looks quite easy to learn.

Hi:
Welcome here !!!
Amospro is very easy to learn and use, and you can then make your own games.
I suggest getting the excellent books available for amos, they show sometimes in
ebay.
1-Mastering amos
2-amiga gamemaker's manual
3-amos in action
If you can get a cd player, there is a cd called amos pd cd, full of amos code and games.
Also, in aminet (amiga online free files)there is plenty of amos code to learn.
Love !!!

Welcome to the world of retro computing with AMOS Pro.  Some of what you need to get started is in the downloads section:

AMOS Pro Manual
Mastering Amiga AMOS

Good luck and enjoy the times when programming was bare metal and somehow simpler and faster... ;)

(Sellotape!  Good grief!!!)

Repeat after me ...  "The AMOS Pro architecture is complex but it is not complicated."
