The Hunt for the Amiga CD32: Part Four

Hi folks,

Today I received some stuff for my Amiga CD32 project. πŸ™‚ The hunt continues!

The first item is an Amiga keyboard from Micronik. I bought this one from Mrodfr through AmiBay. It came all the way from France to the local post-office where I live. It was perfect timing, since I had to go to the post-office to send some games I’d sold to an AmiBayer in Greece. πŸ™‚

Here are two pictures I took earlier today of the keyboard in all its glory:

Since I can’t use the keyboard directly with the Amiga CD32, I decided to spend some cash on an adapter. My choice fell on the Lyra 2 keyboard-adapter from AmigaKit. It’s very handy, since it opens up the vast world of PS/2 keyboards for the Amiga. As always, AmigaKit delivered the goods both quickly and well packed. Here’s a picture of it:

I’m now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Amiga CD32. If I’m extremely lucky, it could be here tomorrow, but my guess is early next week. πŸ™‚ Time will show!

Game on!

Have a good weekend everyone!
