Hi everyone, it’s been a little while since my last update, so here is another.
We are nearly there – but working on some stubborn bugs to fix, including an “Out of Space” error when using netdisk on Windows 10, and some issues with saving profiles in the GUI. I am hopeful we will be able to resolve these issues soon and make a release.
If you have made a donation to the project – thank you very much! If you have not yet donated, please consider it. It is taking more time and effort than we thought to get to a stable release. You can click on the “donate” button on this page to make a donation. Any size of donation helps, even a few Euros help – they do add up if many people donate!
Thank you again for your support an patience.
Note to those who have donated: If you did not receive a copy of the latest beta version please send me an email! I will send it to you. darrenhd @ gmail.com (no spaces).
Update on Remote Desktop (new verison) Status
We are now in release candidate stage. The new version is now tested to work on AmigaOS 3.x on Amithlon, a real Amiga 4000, and on a Vampire equipped A2000.
Speed is highly dependent on your local LAN connection speed. On Amithlon with 100Mbit network it is noticably faster than a 10Mbit connection on the Vampire. But speeds on Vampire are more than acceptable. Also speeds on 060 are Ok – better or faster than the previous version.
Audio re-direction is working so you can listen to sound from the Windows PC and hear it on your Amiga.
A few bugs to work on still but progress is good.
Hi everyone, I want to thank you to the (few) of you who have made recent donations for the new version of Remote Desktop. I really do hope for more donations as very few have come in so far. Any amount, small or large, is of course very appreciated.
Update on the progress:
-2nd beta version has been tested by me. It is working on a real Amiga 4000 but as of yet for some unknown reason it does not work on Amithlon or on a Vampire. We are investigating the cause. A new version of the Remote Desktop GUI has also been compiled. It will require MUI5, but is of course optional for you to use the GUI.
A final note, the gracious developer of this new version is Michał Żukowski. Thank you to Michał for working on this version!
Again donations are welcome at http://www.hd-zone.com/remote-desktop/
Scroll half way down the page and click the yellow “Donate” button.
I am happy to announce that a new version of Remote Desktop for AmigaOS 3.x (68k) is in development! This version will be based on the latest MorphOS port and it will include most of the features of the newer MorphOS port including Windows 10 support, a properly functioning mouse pointer/cursor, audio re-direction, clipboard support, and more.
Although the final version will be free, donations will of course help. You can donate any amount small or large using the Donate button on this website. All donations will be sent directly to the developer.
A beta version is already running so hopefully it will not take too long for a release versions – donations will speed up this process! Thank you to everyone who has donated in the past and for your continued support of the Amiga and the community!
There was a request on Amiga.org from user A6000 (a long time ago!) and more recently CD32Freak, for the DCE A5000 photos. I managed to find the original photos and here they are. The DCE A5000 (and A6000) was an unreleased machine, but it was actually existing in prototype form when it was shown at the Computer ’97 show in Germany. I picked up this flyer while I was at the show. I believe there also exists some photos of the actual motherboard. I will take a look for it, but it may be also available on the web.
Elbox has released a new version of their Mediator CD software, version 2.6. It appears the pci.library is updated as of October 2019, the sb128.audio driver as of January 2019, and the MedConfig program also as of October, 2019. Elbox doesn’t elaborate on what has changed, unfortunately.

Just a quick note, comments should now be working properly, no longer overlapping.
Due to the huge amount of spam that comes in, I still have to leave comment approval in place. Otherwise you would just be seeing junk. There will be a delay before seeing your (valid) comment show up. It’s a manual process so please be patient.
Also, you will notice that the site theme has changed. I’m not sure if I am 100% happy with it, so you may see adjustments or an entirely new theme at any time, as I toy with things to make it look the way I want it to look.
And again I apologize for not keeping the site fresh with updated news. I will try to post things as I think they are worthy – other sites are good at posting news. I will keep the historical and most important information online for users who need it, specifically for AmigaOS 4.1 Classic, Amithlon, and Remote Desktop.
I hope this helps you guys!

In case you haven’t heard, the bankrupt company phase5 – a premier Amiga Accelerator and hardware add-on maker from the 1990’s – is coming back under new ownership/management.
phase5 was famous for making great quality (really, the best) hardware add ons including 68060 accelerators, combo ppc/68k cards, scsi add ons, graphic cards such as the CyberVision PPC, etc…they even had ambitious plans for a full PPC computer. This is potentially great news for Amiga users who remember those amazing times in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s when phase5 was at it’s peak.
