    Now if you REALLY want to get into it! Get yourself an Amiga or Atari Emulator and the world will open, there were hundreds of superfine games for the Amiga 2000 back in the 80's that blew the chips of the pathetic consoles and IBM's of the time! Now they are all abandonware and free for the taking ... with the emulator, you can play such greats as, Dungeonmaster, Vikings or even Elvira Mistress of the Dark here are some links!

    Still have my Amiga 2000HD. Want to collect others from my fun times in the 80s. Internet Archive also has emulators to play old games in your browser page. Got to relive MULE from the Commodore 64 days recently.

    I also have my original A2000 with an 8up board and a few other toys like RGB separator, for the old days of tri-color digitizing. 3d glasses, with the programmable led lenses that I think only myself and a few friends ever did anything with! External SCSI drive bays up the ol'wazoo. My original dial-up modems from first 300 to 1440 baud. Tonns... literally tons ( feels that way when I have to move them) of 31/4 floppies full of back-ups and downloaded software all zipped or lharc'ed, software, and utilities, from the complete Fred Fish Collection and stuff from my old BBS " Gandolf's Garden", running first ever requestable cd's for downloads, ( this was in the early 80's remember) as well as a good deal of the stock from the store I worked part-time at selling Amiga's and Software and constantly repairing IBM clones... Those were the days... just need another RGB monitor to get back up and running...

    Forgot... I always use Dosbox... Love the Drag and Drop to start all the old Amiga games...
    Showed my daughter and she still plays Dungeon Master and Black Crypt.

    You can get a break out box, for the VGA connector, and you will have your RGB. You may need a Horizontal Synch input though, sometimes, not. Depends on the monitor. :)
