Ambermoon CD Version?

Just found this on Ebay.

http://www.ebay.de/itm/AMBERMOON-AMI...item4ae28a941c

Anyone knows something about it? Is it some bootleg?
Never knew it was (re)released on CD by anyone.

This explained it. They released other "CD" versions, nothing official.

Ah ok so they just released stuff without licenses after the previous owner got bankrupt. Wonder which version they used for that CD.

It was pirated I called Steven at Alive and he said they bought them already manufactured in good faith at a market stall in the UK.

My arse they did. I am 99.99% sure they manufactured them (considering what they went on to do).

They had already sold all their stock to Amiga resellers. Some sites stopped selling them after I contacted them, taking a loss, but Amiga Hut in USA refused and they were advertised on their website until it closed.

No, the guy who sells these CD's is creating the CD's/cover.
In the auction it's named Ambermoon (CD-R).
AFAIK he doesn't sell any original soft and Alive has never released this game as CD-version.

Alive DID sell them on CD's.

In 2000, Jennie & Steven Flowers sold something like 100 units to a mixture of Soft Hut in USA and another Amiga shop in the netherlands. He claimed he didn't manufacture them.

If that is true then I cannot imagine that the copies they sold would have "Alive mediasoft" printed on them.

I'm looking to see if I still have the PDF/JPEG of the Alive Mediasoft Magazine "The Pulse" where they announced they would be selling Ambermoon + Amberstar in English on a CD.
