Amiga 500 questions

I picked up a decent looking Miggy 500 today. Came with the power pack (which puts teh 360 to shame for sheer heft), the mouse, modulator etc. I have plugged it all in and it fires up fine. It seems I cannot get past this screen https://scontent.fbrs1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/16711885_14195597813899...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Xbox 360 (original non HDMI model) with leads and a wireless controller for £15 (with a bonus FIFA 16 disc inside). Works well too!
Picked up the Amiga 500. Its a tad brown but all seems to be there. I have a question or two but I'll start a thread elsewhere.

Up to nes = vintage
NES to ps2 = retro
Ps3-360 to now = modern
All in all, who cares?
