there are some doom clones out for the amiga, so i think someone will make it work on the amiga aswell.
why did they kicked kiki - she wanted more money?
Around 1994ish there was a coup within the company where Paul, Kiki, Robert and a bunch of the inside crowd tried to force Tim into moving the company to California an Tim told them to shove off and kicked the lot out.

They went on to form Play and put out a video digitizer for the PC (Snappy).

Over the years those wounds got healed over and Kiki went back to Newtek.

oh *wow* again

i wrote in the other thread about the eab ftp. you can create an account and upload the things you can share.

thanks for the newtek episodes, indeed interesting


#1) btw. there are rumors of an amiga lightwave version beyond 5.0r - latest we know about from videotoaster 4.3 cdrom.
do you know if there is a newer version made for the amiga, maybe internal version only - 5.5 , 5.6 ?

This came off of an internal CD of various Newtek stuff called "Newtek 101"

In the case of the video I ran it in an emulator (It was not an easy task as the demo is flaky on real hardware)

I don't believe they ever really released this demo as it was touchy as hell and it was using in house software. It required hefty system requirements at the time and would have been on at least 10 floppy disks. On top of that it was never polished for public consumption.

I expect listings for it in PD collections were another demo mislabeled.

Here is a the dump of the demo station with every demo (Release and unreleased)

Awesome, thank you.

For what it's worth I dug out the original CD and copied the files to a hard drive file using winuae from within an emulated Amiga to make sure everything got copied and had less chance of windows mucking things up.

I replaced the file so the link doesn't change:

https://lurking-grue.com/transfer/NewTekDemos.zip

I'll also make a hard drive file later of everything else like all the various NewTek installers and tools. While I have a bunch of Lightwave CD's I don't seem to have an stand alone Amiga installer past 4.0. I fell out of the scene around late 96 so I'm guessing stand alone Amiga lightwave took it's time for 5.0 and I managed to miss it.

I do have Flyer installs from .9 to 4.2 including the CD's.

I could make isos of all the various cd's if people are interested.

thats a huge flyer list. i'm not sure - but at least latest of each FlyerInstall 3.x and 4.x
and the Toastinstall 4.1D should be preserved.

the new NewtekDemo HDF works well - no need for the protect command - just tested. thanks

Toaster 4000 install came on floppy DD and HD
the latest cdrom 4.3 is also on the ftp - install floppy, cdrom is here:
(ftp) bit-rot.org/mirror/grandis.nu/Commodore_Amiga/CD/AmigaCD/App/VideoToaster43.zip

@Lurking_Grue:

Thank you SO much - this is truly a milestone in Amiga history!

I had a wonderful time going through this slice of Newtek...the only one I had trouble with was the Seamonkey demo - the images display but the colors are *really* messed up. I tried setting cycle-exact, full ECS...nothing helped. If anyone has any ideas on that, I'd love to hear them.

Ok.. The lha version I have on my Amiga doesn't extract or list them, neither does the one I got from macports, nor the one I have on my linux machine. Neither does WinRAR on my Win PC.

I ran strings against the .lha and it doesn't show those dirs or icons.

Did I perhaps download the incorrect file from the file server? I got the one from your uploads dir.

What archiver were you using to extract it?
