What you will need (not included):

  • A memory card for the Pi and the classic system storage
  • Firmware software, there are several available for download depending on taste and how much setup you want to do on the Amiga side
    • Emu68, Musashi/Raspberry Pi OS, CaffineOS, AmiKit to name a few. Google search or the discord channel can help you locate this.
  • Anything you want to plug into the Pi, such as an HDMI cable for Amiga Pi RTG and/or Pi setup.
  • Consideration for space inside the machine and every machine will have different space availability. For instance, on the Amiga 2000 you can use a CPU slot to socket adapter board. On the Amiga 500 you may need to cover the metal shield with tape or something to ensure it doesn't touch the Pi. The Atari STE will need a 68000 socket, which can be provided by an adapter board.
