Strange, all the Lotus games worked flawlessly on my A500+, including Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge. Did Gremlin release a patched version (I bought mine in ~1993)? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:51, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

I bought my A500+ in April of 1992 in Portugal, and also bought Lotus 1 separately along with it on the same day (it came in a value edition release). There never was a flaw, and I played it extensively. Maybe it was an earlier release of the game that made that happen. --PedroPalhoto (talk) 18:00, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Correct, the budget version released in 1992 did work, as did that in the later Lotus Trilogy compilation.--MartinUK (talk) 12:58, 26 October 2013 (UTC)


The official name is "Amiga 500 Plus" not "Amiga 500+". Bill Bertram 18:34, 26 Oct 2004 (UTC)

If this template is correct, then somebody here should feel free to click the button at the top and move the page to the correct title. -- kenb215 06:30, 26 September 2006 (UTC)

There are no technical restrictions now. No need for the template. --- RockMFR 23:57, 26 April 2007 (UTC)


The box says the A500 had 1meg of ram, but I'm almost certain mine shipped with 512k which I subsequently upgraded with the trapdoor ram expansion to 1meg, I've got half a dozen cover disks knocking about declaring things to require 1 meg (as opposed to 512k) of ram too. -- (talk) 01:47, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Some games did not recognize full 1MB chip ram. I had 1MB chip ram on my Amiga 500 and some games (e.g. Utopia) failed to recognize it properly. Xorxos (talk) 10:48, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
Yes, Amiga memory was split into Chip RAM (accessible by the custom chips) and Fast RAM (faster, but only accessible by the processor). As previous Amigas mostly had 512K of chip RAM, some games and programs expected anything extra to be Fast RAM, which is probably the issue with Utopia and probably others.--MartinUK (talk) 12:59, 26 October 2013 (UTC)

The A500 had half a meg, but the A500 Plus had a full meg. Both were 100% chip RAM. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:25, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
