 Installation:

I have first installed on the left the Ethernet adapter with some patafix or (hot glue), well pressed to fix it. I have connected the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet adapter and reordered the cable.
After in the next Amiga port i have fixed alwayse with some patafix the hdmi cable with the female port looking outside. I have reordered the cable.
As before i have fixed the rca adapter and connected the rca cables and reordered.
Fixed the Raspberry Pi in 4 parts with patafix with sd card and power supply connector faceing outside Amiga.

Final Release!

I have finally installed on my Amiga 1200 Raspberry PI the lastest version of AEROS for Raspberry Pi, it seems made ecxactly for my machine, it is fast and stable as alwayse thank you to Pascal Papara and his Programmers.
Can We Say an Amiga Machine is reborn in 2015!

In this photograph we can see the Amiga 1200 Raspberry Pi running AEROS Operative System in full screen with internet working fine. AEROS is a fully new AMIGA like system.

NEWS: Yeasterday i have tried the new AEROS Broadway  release 10 for Raspberry pi , inside there is a fully working Uae4all Amiga classic emulator and the image is so real that seems to paly in an old amiga 1080s monitor. The game is fluid like the real, i have played Silkworm.

  1. What would be the cost of the kit to build this? I like the project, and would very much like a chance to work on it myself, and to have a play, and make something a bit new with it :)

    Also, what would shipping to the UK cost? please email me (pieman_purple@hotmail.co.uk)

    Thanks

    Daniel

    Thanks

  10. Hi,
    I'm sorry but i lack of components to make any working amiga 1200 or 600 raspberry pi. They are not available at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi, how did you connect the keyboard to the pi?

  12. Hi Bob,
    There is an interface called Keyrah for amiga version for sale in amiga shops, but it'snt still available. I'm also waiting that they produce it again.

    bye

    ReplyDelete

  17. Ciao Matt! Good Work!!!
    I bought a Raspy to do something like to your project.
    Technical question: did you connected directly DB-9 to the Raspy ? if Yes HOOOW? pleease...
    or how did you solve for this problem ?


    I've built one parallele2Joystick or DB25-to-Two-DB-9 joystick interface (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=66288) and i'm going to buy USB-2-PARALLEL interface in order to use the emulator with that..

  18. Ciao Mut : ).
    I used a Keyrah for Amiga to connect keyboard and joystick, there are 2 joystick ports in keyrah so i dont think you need any parallel adapter.
    Have Fun

  19. Othervise there is this method:

  20. Cut your cables to length! It looks like a flying spaghetti monster is trying to get out of your case!! They do make 6-inch HDMI cables too...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Can you tell us about what you did with the LEDs?

    ReplyDelete
  22. You can connect the leds to keyrah, there are appropriate pins

    ReplyDelete
  23. we tend to fall into the trap of believing that the more expensive HDMI cables is obviously the best choice

    1. In my amiga 1200 raspberry there is also rca connection not only hdmi.

  24. Hi, I plugged A1200 keyborad leds into KEYRAH V2 but only w few blinks when keyrah starting and no working leds like power or df0 or cd. any chance to emulate status led like in WINUAE ? ex. PWR LED ? second problem is LAMIGA LAMIGA CTRL to reset. This combination not working with any UAE4ALL.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hello,
    There is a black switch in the right side of keyrah to select the use with normal keybord or uae play. I dont know if this works also with leds but youcan try. I know that the fist led from top is the bloc number, the last is the status power led that flash only some times at startup.This isnt an amiga 1200 remember it'is an amiga 1200 raspberry.
    Ciao

    1. For the combination of key ctrl amiga there is another use in uae4all, try F11.

    2. I have found a tricks to go to the uae4all menu without pressing f11 in the keyboard that lacks in my Amiga 1200 raspberry pi prototype,if you use an usb gamepad with start button press it one time to go to uae4all menu. Enjoy
