Unofficial CD32 Release - 4 Decades Of Amiga Demos


I bring you my final CD32 release, i hope you've enjoyed the releases I've brought to you over the 15 or so months I've been doing them.

"4 Decades of Amiga Demos" has been in the works the last 3 months, if you have followed its progress over on EAB you will know about it, well this is the first public release, containing over 300 demos from 4 decades (80s, 90s, 00s, 10s) all playable from a joypad from the easy to use menu.


Yes there have been demo collections before, for one never as big as this one, secondly they normally are Workbench driven discs meaning needing a mouse and clicking through folders each time to load a demo, and lastly no disc has been tested to make sure every demo runs on a stock CD32 machine.


Disc Menu

The disc contains an easy to use menu, ability to search for a demo by Name, Year or Group (more group folders will follow with each update). Along with 10 must watch OCS & AGA demos for people new to the Amiga demo scene.

Contains classic demos from Anarchy, Andromeda, Kefrens, Lemon, Melon Dezign, Polka Brothers, Rage, RNO, Rebels, Sanity, Scoopex, Spaceballs, The Silents, TRSI, Virtual Dreams & Fairlight among many more!


The disc contains old classics from the late 80's right upto demos from Revision 2017 like Catabasis from Cocoon and Retrovision by insane.

*Note: there may be the odd small graphical glitch on a demo, this is may either be because its an whdload problem or the demo itself is old and may not be full aga compatible, but either way they have been deemed still fully enjoyable!

Download is on the eab server "uploads/cd32" folder*

Details for registering for access to the eab server.

Alternate download link on my blog up for first week to help save EAB's bandwidth!

It was good fun testing/watching the demos (if a bit testing on the eyes!).
I've been interested in watching demos since 1990 ish, getting my parents to order PD disks over the phone!

I will have to download disc 0.2 and watch the other letters.

I think the archive has been moved or removed from the ftp site. It is no longer in ~Uploads/CD32 and I couldn't find it in other likely folders.

Here is a Mega.nz link:

I think you need to use Google Chrome to download files from Mega.nz

No, it's definitely there gary. I just checked

It will only be on the main EAB File Server currently and not the mirror as yet (due to the sync'ing schedule).

Yes, I should have used a proper FTP client instead of my browser.

Glad to see it's finally out!
Can I nitpick? it's "demos" not "demo's"

Gonna give this a whirl next weekend at home! And let us know if you need any further help with the updates.
Most importantly, take a well deserved rest from CD32 compilations! And come back with fresh new ideas when you are ready. Thanks for all the work

@Akira yeah I forgot to change the title screen, I had it noted down on my todo list to change it, as you can see the cover art uses the correct plural spelling, nevermind, I was wanting it out the door, if/when it gets updated I'll fix it!

Yeah, excellent collection you've made, Amigajay.

Lets hope they all get added to TOSEC soon, so they get in as many hands as possible.
