The PiMIGA community is giddy with excitement this evening as the main man Chris Edwards confirmed that version 3.0 of his Amazing Pi distro is just “15 or so days” away from its official release. He’s already released a “teaser trailer” giving further details on what will be included in the
third sixth instalment of PiMIGA.
The video accompanying the news was originally released to his patreons but has now been released to the general public. It covers some of the amazing features of this new release including
- New menu bar
- New Zeb Elwood WHDLoad game pack (iGame)
- Frogger Movie player
- Amiga AMP
- ShapeShift – MacOS 8 Emulator (plus games – run games in emulation, from emulation)
- XFCE Linux desktop
- Host Run Run
- ScummVM etc..
Chris has confirmed that PiMIGA 3.0 will require a 64GB SDCard and Pi4 or Pi400 2GB (for greater)
We give thanks again to Chris for everything he’s done for the Amiga community. If you’re not already subscribed to his channel then you should be – https://www.youtube.com/@ChrisEdwardsRestoration.
I personally can’t wait for the official release which we’ll cover in-depth as room as I get my grubby mitts on it.
wow that looks incredible!!! I am glad that it still continues on. chris took this over from paul many years back and has continued to improve it with every release. I don’t know if anything can top the 1.5MF tosec super pack?. but I purchased 2 roms for that one. man i cant wait! and this is FREE>? heard it was a Trademark now. good on ya mate.
Thanks for the comment Charles – I can’t wait too.
He has indeed now got the trademark and I’ve even seen the certificate. I’ll be covering that in more detail in a later document. And yes… all free!
I love this system . It is not perfect, however it runs better that my
1200 ever did. Youtube on pimiga? Hats off mate
I do not see how he can trademark this. it is a open compilation of archive.org and other bit rot sites compiled into one thing. unless it is the word name and the logo ? which is understandable. I enjoyed pimiga 1.5MF also mr Charles. it was great. and I do support this work, it is nice to see the Amiga lineage continue sorry for this english. this is Google translate
