Really love this, I had foolishly let my forum account get pruned but then I heard about this and had to re-register to say thanks and beg to check it out!

Would love to have a copy of this when you make it available to download. Amiga was my favourite computer of all time. Currently have Amikit installed on my PC and Amiga Forever but this package of yours looks awesome

This is really exciting news, I'm looking forward to install your collection DamienD!

Even though I have several collections installed your awesome collection will be my first choice whenever I want to enjoy some good old floppy loading with actual intro/cracktros. Not to mention those custom HDFs

Thank you very much for the time you put into this.

Guys, please don't fill this thread with:

Trying to PM you but your Inbox is full / how do I get links?

This thread is for thoughts / discussion after you've played around with my collection

Anyway, deleting any posts like that now from the thread.

You know what to do, PM me

No, I can't as there are some .IPF files in the collection... same reason why I can't host on the EAB File Server

To anyone that has been given the links, don't post anywhere else. Please respect my request.

That's a very good question my friend

...just checked the "registry" settings and; as I've used "relative paths"; why yes. Yes it should

Also checked my configuration files and they also use "relative paths" for game locations / files, KS ROMs etc.

You will still need to run my "Setup.exe" file and then move "C:\WinUAE" to the desired removable storage device.

Anyway, do test and report back

I am a long time Amiga user, got my Amiga 1000 in 1986, I have most of my collection complete but would love to have access to your collection as it would reduce a lot of the hassle it seems of setting up games etc. Can you please PM me if possible? Regardless you are doing great work for the Amiga community...Thanks

...what have I done; shite has gone viral. The Mega.nz severs won't hold up!!!

I knew sending uber retro blogger Neil79 a copy, as I thought he'd appreciate, was a bad idea. Hahahahaha

Nah, all good. What's the point of doing a project this big and for this long if you are not going to share it with the remaining Amiga community that still matter and keep dreams alive???

...absolutely nothing.

Enjoy and please drop feedback if you can!!!

I'm from Italy, Venice, i'm 46 and I'm in love with everything concerns retro game but expecially Commodore's things, Amiga and c64 most of all. My brother and I spent hours/days of our lives playing dozens of funny, fantastic games and of course now everything that reminds me or may recall that funny period is inside my computer...It's not the same thing, doesn't make me feel the same way, of course, but the GameBase Collection (huge and complete of most the published collections), AmiKit, Amiga Forever (with a Clone copy of my old amiga hdd) gives some fun to me and my three kids, say 2... the older is becoming "too old"... "Unfortunately" my job takes the majority of my time, the remaining is for my family but whenever I can I always try to re organize and then play with my archive, but I thing you did it much better...
This long, sorry, presentation is because I would like to ask you if I can be honoured to have the chance, or how to get the chance to download your incredible work and in case, I need to know if I have to keep that only for me, which I suppose the answer is yes.

Thanks for the chance, any answer willl be appreciated, positive or negative.

Thanks a lot,
goodnight,
Enrico

ps. please forgive my english

Joined just to message you. I've been wanting to get into the Amiga more these days, from gaming to developing (just because), so this is a godsend. I PM'd you a bit ago, but thank you for this!

I've been working on putting together my own collection this past year, partly nostalgia, partly just to relive some of the good old days and partly to be able to show my son how daddy played games back in the day. Your collection seems like a fantastic starting point from an organizational structure and I'd love to have the opportunity to download a copy, assuming the servers are holding up

Also, I'd like to echo the sentiment of all of those that have expressed their appreciation for your efforts. From my own attempts to organize things, I know it can be a brutal effort and adding screenshots and your own stuff to it, I applaud you and appreciate your efforts to put this together and my gratitude for sharing it with the world.

Thanks, mate!
