Platform game: Remake of "Boxx" using Scorpion Engine
The developer 'Lemming880' is currently working on the fourth part of his "Boxx" series developed with the Scorpion Engine ( reported). He also tried to port the first part of the series, originally written with Backbone, to the Scorpion Engine, which apparently succeeded: he uploaded a beta version under the title link (YouTube trailer). Minimum requirement is an Amiga 500 with 1MB RAM. (dr)

WSL for Windows 10/11 generally available
As Microsoft explains in a developer book entry, the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is now generally available for Windows 10 and 11 in the Microsoft Store, having previously held "Preview" status. This means that it is now easier for users and developers to test the runtime environment for Linux, "AxRuntime", written by Krzysztof 'deadwood' Śmiechowicz, under Windows: for existing users, a simple upgrade is possible with wsl --update. If one uses the store version of WSL, one gets WSL updates much faster than before when WSL was a Windows component.

At a request of the WSL community, WSL in the Store will now be available on Windows 10 and Windows 11. This allows Windows 10 users to take advantage of the latest WSL features, including support for systemd and Linux GUI applications. (dr)

DIY: V2.2 of RGBtoHDMI adapter for Amiga 2000
Developer Andrew Hutchings had summarized the development status regarding his version of the RGBtoHDMI adapter at the end of January 2022, which is based on the RGBtoHDMI project and is a further development of the Amiga-VideoSlot-RGBtoHDMI adapter for the Amiga 2000 by 'Bloodmosher': The goal of the RGBtoHDMI project is to feed raw digital RGB data into a Raspberry Pi Zero, which then outputs it via HDMI to produce a pixel-perfect display of the image with low latency.

The now published version 2.2 of the design is smaller than the 2.1 version and has a protection fuse on it. Basically, version 2 of this board is easier to build and easier for the user to install than version 1. The Pi is on the back of the Amiga, so the HDMI port can be connected directly, and physical buttons are used instead of cables. The parts needed to assemble it yourself can be ordered for around 14 euros plus shipping on tindie. (dr)
