I have taken over 5800 images myself chip (2910 title and 2905 sshots).

Only 5 times have I borrowed sshots from HOL; with permission and watermarks removed

Things is, with these RPG, Strategy and Adventure games you need to spend hours playing to get something decent.

You imagine doing that for 2900+ games...

...so in these circumstances; yes I'm prepared to borrow a screenshot when I can't get a decent one myself after 10 minutes of playing

It's just a screenshot at the end of the day...

...but a good one used in my collection better promotes the game; which might lead to more sales if it's a new game to be purchased

Note: obviously the game is not included, the following is just the configuration file, title / screenshot.

So, please do the following:
  • Firstly, you need to install the game, name the file "Black Dawn Rebirth.hdf" and then save into "C:\WinUAE\Games\Black Dawn Rebirth".
  • Then download / extract the attached archive into "C:\WinUAE".
So I've now updated the screenshot with the following...



New archive attached

Thanks man, appreciate your comments

...it's been a long 14+ years of continual improvements from start until now

Ok, in reality I didn't work on my personal project at all between "2009 - mid 2015" i.e. when I was also AWOL from EAB for various reasons (mainly female related)

Just checked out some RTG action... Blackthorne & AITD, both played really well & smooth, just couldn't figure out how to fire the shotgun at the start. LOL

@DamienD:

Thank you Damien from me too! WinUAE gets much more "sexy" with your collection and the screenshots from it.

The games are very well chosen by you, I think this because we share a similar afinnity with the same games and I see you had much care choosing every one, even choosing the best games from every year of the Amiga gaming era.

And the screenshots look great! Sometimes I even have the strange feel that I already have seen the same screenshots in the magazines back in time. I think this very spooky ahhh!!!

I think you must have had a hard work making all this work successfully. Thank you very much for all this effort!

Hi DamienD,
Sorry if this has already been answered, but is there a reason for adding MAC games to an Amiga collection?

Just because they were quite cool games really, not natively available on the Amiga and Shapeshifter works very well

You could say the same thing with any ports that are in my collection.

Sorry chip, I didn't have read this part of the discussion about screenshots. Was not intentional when I started talking about the screenshots after a long time without posting on this thread.

Sorry also DamienD.

No need to apologize Leandro

There's nothing wrong, no problem here

All the best, chip
