With relokick and disabled CPU caches I would say about a half of my collection worked without glitches. So I would agree with you for the most part.

The thread title is a little sweeping: "Did piracy kill the Amiga?" No obviously not. It's a bit much to suggest piracy has destroyed the sales of any machine. (Although the Sega Dreamcast would make for a more interesting debate on that question.)

"Did piracy damage livelihoods, reduce motivation to develop for the platform, and encourage developers to go elsewhere?" Yes, I think it did.
