News / Re: Ami-Express 5.2.0 update released

Thanks for your continued effort to keep this old system alive, it is almost tempting to set it up and have a go. Last time my bbs was online however I was using Tempest as my system of choice. I seem to remember /X having a less then desired (for me at least) way of setting up the system compared to others like Tempest, Daydream etc which had a nice GUI.

Has this changed with your new version?

This is a very interesting product

It is indeed, perfect for anyone who has been dreaming of doing Amiga games but not had the programming abilities to do so :).

| Ami-Express was a BBS System that ran on the Commodore Amiga series of    |
| computers and was developed by Lightspeed Technologies in the 1990s.      |
|                                                                           |
| Version 5.2.0                                                             |
|                                                                           |
| This is a rewrite of that system written in Amiga E. It is open source    |
| and has new features and bug fixes in addition to aiming for near 100%    |     
| backwards compatibility with the version 4.x releases.                    |
|                                                                           |
| I contacted Joe Hodge/LightSpeed Technologies the owner of /X product     |
| in December 2018 and he has given his full approval for me to take over   |
| this software and to continue using the Ami-Express name.                 |
|                                                                           |
| I have also updated the documentation for Ami-Express as many existing    |
| features were not properly documented. Some of the new features in this   |
| release are:                                                              |
|                                                                           |
|     * Native telnet support, removing the need for telnetd.device         |
|                                                                           |
|     * Optional caching of file lists in RAM:                              |
|                                                                           |
|     * Configurable connection flood banning (native telnet only)          |
|                                                                           |
|     * Support for asyncio.library to speed up transfers                   |
|                                                                           |
|     * Ability to mimic older versions of /X version number                |
|                                                                           |
|     * Ability to list all messages                                        |
|                                                                           |
|     * UP command displays date/time node was last started                 |
|                                                                           |
| All source code is publicly available at:                                 |
https://github.com/dmcoles/AmiExpress along with the documentation.      |
|                                                                           |
| Included in this archive are several sample bbs configurations using      |
| tooltype (.info) and config file (.cfg) format. These are aimed at users  |
| wanting to set up a bbs for the first time. There is also a file called   |
| aeicon.json which can be imported using the json import tool or by        |
| selecting the file the first time you start /X with no configuration in   |
| place. This file will create a basic structure similar to the ones        |
| included in the archive.                                                  |
|                                                                           |
| If you are a pre-existing /X4 user, the ACP and Express files can just    |
| replace the old versions and should be as close to fully backwards        |
| compatible as possible. Plesae do contact me or raise issues in github if |
| you encounter any problems.                                               |
|                                                                           |
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|      This release is dedicated to my partner Traci who was taken ill      |
|      unexpectedly at the end of 2018 and passed away after suffering      |
|               lung damage caused by Influenza. RIP Traci xx.              |

News / TerribleFire 1260 and TerribleFire 360
« Last post by 4pLaY on December 23, 2019, 12:34:38 AM »
New 060 accelerators are nearing a public release. The TerribleFire 1260 is a new 060 accelerator coming for the Amiga 1200 and the TerribleFire 360 is a 060 accelerator coming to the Amiga CD32.

I had some words with one of the guys working on these (Chucky) and he gave me the OK to release a bit of information about the cards.

- With the beta boards one should be able to overclock it to 75/80mhz using the latest rev6 060 but they are working on getting it higher, the main developer has gotten it up to 100 sometimes.
- You can set the clock speed with a CLI command.
- The card does NOT support using a 040 CPU as a "downgrade" option.
- There is no set release date yet but they hope to get it out to the "masses" in 1Q 2020.
- There is no set price yet but he guessed at a 150/200 euro price tag without the CPU. Price for CPU differs, depending on the rev you would get with the most expensive being the rev6 at around 150 euro.

Be sure to check out Chucky`s latest YouTube video where he shows and talks about the cards.
