The list includes multi-disk games, so there's a lot less than 4200 in there.

When I first started this personal project back in 2005; my goal was to add in all the games that I ever had / or wanted on my "A500 - KS 1.3 / 512KB Chip & 512KB Slow RAM" from the late 80's / early 90's.

Had a few questions about numerous things and that's how I found EAB; so joined. Moving forward, I read loads of threads / posts and also found out about HOL / LemonAmiga. I think by mid 2007 my collection contained about 500 games and I was happy.

I then discovered other OCS / ECS games plus AGA / CD32 / CDTV / AmigaCD titles, and so went through HOL letter by letter, page after page, making a list of stuff that looked good and I thought would be cool to play. This is when the project really kicked off and I started going crazy researching / configuring / adding in new games.

I'm quite aware that there are way more games available for the Amiga than what's currently in my collection. HOL lists 6,900 and Daff's site lists over 11, 000...

For me it's always been about adding in games that are quality, decent, fun and which really showcase the Amiga. It's never been about adding in every single Amiga game ever made, this is crazy and there's a lot of rubbish out there or stuff that I'm simply not interested in. Doing this just degrades the quality of the collection...

Anyway, so here we are today... and as I've mentioned a few times now, I'm really struggling to create new update packs these days

If you have any suggestions regarding quality, decent, fun games that I've somehow missed; please post in the following thread and I'll look into them: Request for any gems

Bah, tonight I had the chance to recheck everything in Update Pack #18 (which I usually do)...

Made two small mistakes with the following configuration files:

Prototype.uae:
For some reason I had set "Port 2 = Keyboard Layout A" when it should have been "Keyboard Layout B". This only took affect if you chose to play the game with joystick from the options.


Syndicate - American Revolt Mission Disk.uae:
I had set "Port 2 = Keyboard Layout B". You use the mouse to control everything in the game, but with "Keyboard Layout B" set you cannot use the <Cursor Keys> to move the view / screen when in play. Now set as "Port 2 = None".


Actually, this also needs to be changed in Syndicate.uae as well, so included...

Sorry guys, download and extract the following into C:\WinUAE\Configurations to rectify.

Honestly, I can't think of a single game, sans a shareware one that just doesn't exist anymore even in the hands of the author (Artillerus full version- the author and I were at college/university together and he gave me a copy of the then-new game. Unfortunately it went with my Amiga when I sold it. I brought it up here once and someone said he contacted Michael (the author) and he unfortunately didn't have it anymore either- oh, well).

You even had Brat in the collection- fun game back in the day but one I did not expect to see in your curated collection. Too bad I am utterly terrible at it today.
