Hey DamienD, lots people are a little bit upset by all this, regards to that one member **** everyone else over. How about uploading to a torrent and then passwording the files? So people still need to contact you for the password

Someone sent me a PM with a good point that I need to clarify:

Quote:
When I try to decompress them a fatal error appears: 'file damaged or in unknown format'!
The files are not damaged, I used the latest version of WinRAR to compress / split.

You need v5.50 from here: https://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

As usual I've missed this party (i should stop working too hard :-p). Thanks @DamienD for your hard work and your contribution to the Amiga Community. Please let us know in case you will setup a private torrent if there are costs involved. PayPal is our friend

If you plan to do a re-release, let me know if I can help; mirror, seed - whatever. I'd like to help out. I would have PMed - but you're still full

Oh no, like the last few messages. Tried messagign and your full. Hope this can be put up somewhere , somehow. AS your full , thought i would still send my message, but here. Hope it doesnt bore anyone


Hi there DamienD

i dont want to seem cheeky, having only just signed up to the forums, but would it be possible to have a link for this amazing collection you have made (i 100% promise i will make a post concerning my thoughts after downloading and trying it out)

Have been over the last year and a bit deciding to get a retro emulation system up and running, i feel personally that my girls (ones 2 in march the others almost 6) when they get into gaming, need to.. na! must experience the old games.

On that basis the HTPC we have set up is gradually becoming a retro arcade (the 6 year old is loving it so far). But out of all the systems the one dearest to my heart was / is the Amiga.

I first got to try one as a kid an A500 of my uncles, then was determined i would get one, dear ole mum said i could have one if i saved up!... she eventually gave in when i had managed to save i think, what, about 1/10 the cost of the 500+ cartoon classics cost

Any way i could go on for ages about my memories of the beautiful machines and how sad i was to loose them eventually to failure and damage during house moves blah blah..

I heard about this, and yourself via the Google Now launchers news feed, my interest in Amiga and of emulation over the last years google searching i guess sent it my way, and i am glad it did.

Any ways. Hope i will hear from you.

Very kindest Regards

Great work Damien! I've been looking forward to something like this for ages! Maybe it's time to recover my original A1200 from the attic rather than emulating it!

While I've been visiting abime from time to time around 10 years now, you just gave me reason to register an account!

So many new users! Never seen anything like it. But then, not everyone knows that EAB is the best place! Maybe they can contribute with something!?

And DamienD, thank you for your huge effort and the generosity. It works great! Also sry to see that someone did not listen to your wish about not spreading it ;(

Everyone who shudders from the word "contribute" should understand; if you find something on EAB like this collection here, come back, write a review, tell everyone what you played and how it was. If you change a config, share that too and why you made said change. Get interactive, be a part of the community; live, learn, share, have fun....

Every contribution counts even if you're just here for the games.

Click around, explore....

Hi again.

Thank you so much DamienD.

So i have had a few hours playing now since finishing downloading, and setting it up, and.. it is as advertised, as yet have not found a title that doesn't , "just work".

Found many of the games i used to love playing, also found ones i had played extensively but have somehow over time forgot about (age i guess lol) Team Yankee. loved that game... need to find Team Yankee two now !!

Need to dig out the joypads i have somewhere in a box under the stairs now (recent house move) so the little ones can enjoy Fire and Ice, morph, an um, um... to many choices

Amazing work to have all this set up, with screenshots, machine settings etc etc..

So yes, with this making the news feeds, i can see why so many new people , me included have arrived here. I plan to stick around (when i get time of course, between work, house work, kids, life in general )

cant say thanks enough...

Oh Boy, where do I start ?
I've tested it on Win7 SP1 but since the OS was re-installed recently it required the platform update (KB2670838) which is roughly 11 MB.

The installation (extract + setup) took me around 5 minutes and is virtual impossible to make a mistake since there is the batch file.

Now, on the first run you're blown away by the nice screenshots and that only is a fantastic job.

Then of course you see the list of games but the majority of us have already those games in many different formats. So what makes this project unique ?

Well it is damn organized and pleasing to the eye from any point of view: The proper case for naming the files, the selection of the best version of each game and last but not least most of the games folders have extra content such walkthrough, cheats, etc etc.

This is @DamienD personal project but it really deserve to be preserved in the amiga community. Thanks again for sharing it with us, very well done.

P.s. The first one I've tried was Yolanda, guess Steve Bak's games are my guilty pleasure

This sentence could be offend all GameBase collections (this EAB Section, i want to remember, is dedicated only to GameBase Projects) that in these many years has released many database about Amiga: mainly games and demos.
Of course it is very important that everyone can bring new collections about amiga to have more choice.
