Unfinished R-Type clone: Thesius XII
In Autumn 2003 the team of Underware Design released the R-Type clone "Thesius XII" which they did not finish. According to the authors "this version is basically a 3 level edition of the game, minus the final two levels (which are no where near complete) and lots of polish" and for some time is available on their website.

Tutorial: Raspberry Pi as PPP-server for the Amiga (Update 2)
An blog entry explains how you can use a Raspberry Pi with a cheap TTL-to-RS232-converter as a PPP server for an Amiga. The Amiga is connected to the single board computer using a regular RS 232 serial cable und is using a TCP stack - the tourial is using Miami as an example - to connect to the network.

Update: (25.05.2016, 15:20, cg)

The blog is hosted on the author's Raspbery Pi, which apparently can't handle the current amount of visitors very well. The website keeps disappearing for short periods of time.

Update: (26.05.2016, 22:15, cg)

A different Blog describes pretty much the same setup, apart from using the free AmiTCP 4.0 available from Aminet as a TCP stack on the Amiga. (cg) (Translation: dr)
