Crowdfunding for retro community "Amiga Global Alliance" canceled
David Pleasance - ex-Commodore UK management, author of several Commodore books and regular guest at various Amiga events since 2015 - had launched a new project with his "Amiga Global Alliance" ("AGA") at the beginning of June, which was to be financed via a Kickstarter campaign ( reported). As he now informs in an update under the title link, he has decided to cancel the Kickstarter campaign after various critical feedback. He hopes that with this decision he can "mend any fractures" that have arisen in the Amiga community as a result of the campaign. (dr)

Crowdfunding: Retro joysticks "Immortal Joysticks"
On Kickstarter, Andrew (Amiga for Mortals) has started the crowdfunding of his self-designed and so far custom-built joystick "Immortal Joysticks" to enable series production (YouTube video). Around 29,000 euros must be collected for this purpose by 07 July. Features of the joystick:
  • Aluminium alloy enclosure
  • Authentic Sanwa Denshi and Seimitsu arcade parts
  • Braided cable
  • Standard moulded DB9 connection
  • Switchable auto-fire
  • Switchable 'up to button 2' mapping (up still functions normally)
  • Zero-latency
  • Enclosure size 145 x 121 x 39mm
  • Hand-built in the UK
After initial discussions with suppliers, the housings will most likely be black, but the buttons, ball top, dust cover and cable braid should be customisable in colour. The colour selection will be made as soon as all final production details are confirmed. (dr)
