Amiga - Windows 8 Start Menu

I've customized the Windows 8 Start Menu to be Amiga branded and to launch Amiga games from save states. Check out the link below:

This is sweet! What is the software from 1:08?! That looks like a nice front end!

From 1.08 is an animated menu I made for Hyperspin (a front end for emulators). Here's a link to a video of it:

Hyperspin looks good. But it must take you a long time extracting the animations from the games?!

Yeah, I use a few different methods - some quicker than others. Some I capture screenshots and then use batches in photoshop to remove the background. Others I use the Sega Genesis emulator with a pink bacgkround which is much easier to remove the backgrounds. Others I animate in Adobe flash myself.

Good work, really nice. Do you have plans to share and make available for others to use?

Hi manic, the download link is in the description of this video

But a knowledge of Hyperspin is necessary.

Good work! Do you also happen to have Amiga start orbs for Win 8? It'd be great to have some.

That's fantastic! Personally I don't care for Windows 8, but this is brilliant. With every version of Windows, Microsoft is trying to eliminate (all) emulation.
