    So are there any RPGs like Zelda or Secret of Mana? Or even anything turn-based?

    RPGs are all of the western variety so Goldbox games, Ultimas, Amberstar/Ambermoon and so on.

    Space Rogue looks really interesting to me. It's a space sim/rpg from Origin, like Elite except you can get out of your ship and walk around/interact with npcs...etc

When I launch anything that needs a regular amiga screen resolution though that comes out through regular RGB onto my Amiga 1081 CRT. I did have the 1081 lined up to sell but a couple of days before I was going to transport it I tested it out and there was a horrendous buzzing so had to call the sale off. With hindsight I now think that was caused by having the volume turned way up with no audio input going into it because it seems fine now!!I'll post some pics of the setup once I tidy it a bit.
    Yes you did, to me! I'm still interested in that monitor btw but it sounds like it's taken up a more permanent residence in your setup

    It's funny seeing this thread pop up as it did, I saw Turrican 2 and Dungeon Master in Cash Converters shortly afterwards. Maybe it's a sign



    I wonder if those disks have been tested...

    I really liked this Phillips monitor with the Amiga. Have great memories of playing games like Speedball 2, Lotus, and Kick Off 2 etc... for hours and hours with friends. Used to sit really close to the screen, so the size didn't really matter.

    @Cepp I donít intend keeping it long term mate and you have first dibs. Itís really only in use because I couldnít find enough hdmi cables to use the ossc and havenít moved the indivision flicker fixer out of the A600.

    Remember UFO Enemy Unknown if you want something turn based. The precursor to the XCom games.

    Commodore has no real presence in Japan post Vic 20 so no Amiga games came out of there really and as mentioned all rpgs were western in nature. Shadowlands might be the closest thing but canít remember if that was turn based. I think it wasnít.

    I had the Philips 8852 which was a higher spec unit, never seen another one in the wild used to go to a big 'computer club' every Thursday and mine was the only one and often got some nice comments.

    It had a better pixel pitch, it was clearly sharper and had a lovely matt black screen (the 8833 had a shiny grey screen), am sure it had more available pixels and more controls for the screen horizontal and vertical stretch and move but I could be talking rubbish.
    It also came with a swivel stand.

    Only problem was it used to go through on/off switches at a fair lick, thankfully it was a common type and available in any electrical spares shop.

    The graphics by Cinemaware were jaw dropping. Best game of theirs or me was TV Sports Football, was just getting into the NFL and used to play this to death with a couple of my mates. It actually played a really good game.

    Wings was one of their last games but actually quite serious, the instructions came with wonderfully researched text about just how hard it was for the WWI pilots with real stories from the front line.

    I only ever saw one 8852 in the wild, at CEX one year. Higher spec than the common 8833 as you say but it actually had less controls and no headphone socket.

    I had a Taxan Multisync so I could use the Productivity screenmodes etc. That was lovely. Wish I still had it.

    Loved the Amiga. Spent most of my time on Mod Trackers, Deluxe Paint, Hunter, and the Lucasfilm point and click games. Oh and Kick Off 2 and Sensi.

    I used to sink loads of time into Hunter. I had no idea what I was doing. I would just explore and find vehicles to kill myself in. It was basically GTA3.
