Subject: Amiga help please! 2000hd stuck in amigados screen
I’ve been trying to remember how to setup auto boot to the hard disk drive and I managed to set that drive as high priority. Now I can’t remember how to get back to my hdtoolbox (which now ONLY LIVES ON THE HARD DRIVE 🤣) to reset it as lower priority than the floppy drive (which is working fine) so I can make myself a backup disk. Needless to say I remember just enough to be dangerous, not enough to get myself out of my dumb messes. Thanks in advance! Also, WB 1.3

Subject: 3D print question
Does anyone have or know where I can find the 3D printer design for a A2000 back plate with the HDMI connector? Similar to how the RGB-to-HDMI connector is?
I want to see if I can add a keystone jack connector to it as well so I can put a keystone in it and have both network and HDMI out without needing to run wires through the openings on the Amiga. :)

Subject: Amiga BBS software used to create games
Hello all. I was hoping you could help me find an Amiga BBS software that would have been used in the 90s to create games. Growing up in Staten Island, NY in the 90s, there was an interactive community Television channel where you could call up on your phone and play a basic adventure type game where you'd select which direction to go (left, right, forward) to advance to the next screen and hopefully not die. I was able to contact someone that worked at Staten Island Community Television back in the 90s, and she said they had an Amiga system running a bulletin board software. She said it had "interactive" capabilities built in which allowed her to write, illustrate, and add sounds to what she described as "interactive comics". However, she can't remember what the software was. It doesn't sound like she really programmed anything herself so the software must have done the heavy lifting and gave her a framework to put this games together. Does this sound familiar to anyone out there? Does anyone know what this software could have been?

Subject: "Modern" CRT Monitor for 1200?
Does anyone know if there are any "modern" CRT monitors that you can use with an A1200 that can be relatively easily bought?
It seems to me that most 1084/1942/so on monitors are really rare now, but there must be newer monitors that support the Amigas frequency and resolution? Maybe that are usable with adapters?
(I am assuming the RGB port on the 1200 gives the best output?)

Subject: Help required regarding upgrading an A500 with a Classic 520 (what OS to use, ROM, amount of RAM, howto,...)
After years of owning my trusty A500, I'm finally looking into upgrading it. Hopefully, with the help of this community I'll be able to figure everything out.
My A500 is a french rev 4 motherboard, with an additional 512k of ram, and my plan is currently to add a Classic 520 to it, in order to install games on a SD card and to boot straight from a CF card. Being european, I'm probably going to buy everything I need from amigastore.
But, being unknowledgeable regarding Amigas I'm finding it really hard to understand everything. For example, if I go the Classic 520 route, which version of AmigaOS to install? Some say 3.1, others 3.1.4. I've seen videos of 3.1.4 running on stock A1000, but I read everywhere that it would require 2mb of ram to be usable. Another thing I have yet to understand is wether a new rom would need to be installed in the A500 or if the Classic 520 would totally bypass the existing rom. The annoying part in my plan is that, in order to use an SD card with the Classic 520, I need to install some software first (at least that's what I understood). Software that I won't be able to install because I have no equipment capable of burning floppy disks. A gotek drive may resolve that, but at this point the project would become very costly, only to play games. I only play on real hardware, so emulation is out of the question.
I love my A500, and I really want to upgrade it, but there are so many things I need to understand in order to succeed. If any of you have ideas or advices on how to upgrade my A500, it would be greatly appreciated! 😺

Subject: Fat Agnus 8372: Anybody know where I could buy one?
Okay, I've tried Google, eBay searches and local 2ndhand sites but come up empty. Anybody know of a place to buy one? One eBay auction talked about a replacement / alternative but since it already sold there were no pictures or info. And AmiBay search is currently disabled / not working so no joy either. Any tips welcome.
