I cannot wait till the release of "TheAmiga" or "The500" by RGL so to tie me over with the lust for an Amiga, I got a white keyboard and mouse (just to add to the effect) and loaded the new version of Pimiga 1.5 onto my raspberry pi 4(2gb), There is two version a 32GB and a 128GB, I went with the 32gb and i am impressed with it so far all the games are on it and more, there is an option to use joysticks and "TheJoystick" is in the list here is a few pics, and a youtube link, and in it is links to the downloads It wont be the same as having a working keyboard and mouse(and "TheJoystick") as the Amiga so i hope that RGL do a good job (like Thec64 & TheVic20) to give me the same feeling!!!!
I've been hearing great things about the Pimiga raspberry pi image. It has most things already set up so it takes most of the hassle out of stuff like hardware configuration which can make emulating the various Amiga computers tricky for some. Even ETA Prime, who is a great channel for setting up Pi emulation, said in a video once that he held off on exploring Amiga games because he found it difficult to set up RetroPie for some Amiga stuff. What I think is extra cool is it even supports past and present hardware add-ons like accelerator or graphics cards.
Here's ETA Prime installing and reviewing PiMiga. This video is a year old but if you read the comments below it the creator of Pimiga says he was working on an updated version with all WHLoad software and such included.
Here's another video on a different Amiga emulation software package for a PC or raspberry pi. It's a new video by Dan Wood, who does great Commodore related stuff on his channel. If you look at his video notes it gives the time stamps in the video for things like where he discusses the Raspberry pi setup and use.
I would love to use an old Amiga keyboard but they are just to expensive, so its great that RGL made The64 and maybe the Amiga.........
There's a new Amiga 1200 keyboard being made by somebody now. With that you could buy one of the new Amiga 1200 cases being built and then throw a Pi and Keyra board into it to use the keyboard and Atari plug style joysticks. The new keyboard is shown and mentioned in a video released by RetroRecipies a week or two ago where he also unboxes the first prototype Retro Games Ltd A500. He's supposed to do a video any day now powering up and using The A500.

c64aa: Is there a trick to play dual sided games in the d64 format on the c64 mini? Most of the games I want to play are only available in multiple files and I read back when the mini was released there was no way to play dual sided games

george2514: Suika Game plays similarly to Sega's Puyo Puyo Tetris, Suika Game in which you have to line up matching fruits to make them disappear before the basket overflows.

pebmeister: Hello everyone! I have been a software engineer since the 80's. I have written an open source cross assembler for the C64 (Multi platform) and I am currently working on a full blown IDE. I have also written a wedge that adds a bunch of graphics to basic.

keatnpotatoes: Hey all, I've always loved older tech, but limited budget stopped me from exploring it. Just found and bought the C64 mini and so excited to really dig in!
