AIAB (Amiga in a Box) project
 
I may be blind, but Amiga in a Box seems to be missing from the internet these days apart from people making requests and archives uploaded.

I think that's a huge shame - it has its part in emulation history and it would be nice to have it hosted with a proper page like AmigaSYS, AmiKit and ClassicWB.

It was a huge inspiration to me and helped enormously in getting my first pack out of the door - without James' install scripts I wouldn't have know where to start developing my own.

It's a unique pack, has its own feel and style and perhaps if we can get in contact with James, we can host it here on abime or some other member site?

AIAB was good and inspired me also...so I ripped the ShutDown-script from it to my own WB-setup back then ;)

Djay 27 January 2012 14:27

ahh bless...

see my review in the features section!

I LOVED AIAB.
It's the first "ready-to-use"Workbench setup I ever had, and probably the one I used the most.

I can host, if someone can get me all data. I did try piecing together.
Let me know.

I agree, AIAB was the first fully loaded WB setup I ever used in WinUAE.
I was actually looking for something the other week, but could'nt find anything on it.
Wayback machine gives you some data, but not all, :(.

I feel this is a worthy project. I will see what I can find, I have loads of olds discs with stuff on them. Will have a look through them.

If only we could get the full webpage back too; great offer FOL. :)

thomas 28 January 2012 18:52

This one?

Bloodwych 28 January 2012 19:01

That's the one Thomas.

Djay had the same link/idea above, but it didn't seem to work when I clicked on it (but it may have been my browsersettings).

I think there was another one when its last update was done as well - had a picture of the updated pack on its homepage.

I think the newer address was http://aiab.amiga.sk/

thomas 28 January 2012 20:51

This is the last working version: http://web.archive.org/web/200901250...aiab.amiga.sk/
but no images and no downloads archived.

Kitty 28 January 2012 21:46

Bloodwych we can host it as a separate website, just provide us with all the pages and files. we'll have it up asap ;-)

BarryB 29 January 2012 00:22

I found these on my HDD:

20071213-aiab-r10.6.7z
aiab-apps1.zip
aiab-internet1.zip
aiab-internet2.zip
aiab-unreal.zip
r10-update.zip


Any use?

I now have of the original site including all downloads (including C and BETA D).

Will work on bringing it online now.

prowler 29 January 2012 02:11

Thanks, FOL! :bowdown

It will be marvellous if you can pull that off! :great

I have a good many of the old AIAB webpages archived going back as far as 2001 or so. If you are missing anything (screenshots, downloads, etc.), just put up a request. I have nearly all old versions and updates going back to v4. (Earlier versions were withdrawn due to .GIF content.)

It will be great to see them all available online again. :spin

May take a bit, have to rewrite alot of the code as there are hardcoded links.

EDIT:- Getting there, :).

Most of it is working now, just sorting downloads section.
I will also remove all ads as they are not needed now.
I will also leave Exile off. Will have to try and contact author, see if we can get permission to host it again.
