I'm sort of feeling the same way... I mean, with struggling to add anything decent into my project for some time now; I'm loosing interest / motivation.

Mind you, I've very happy with where it's gotten to and definitely achieved more than I originally planned

I guess it's normal that something of that kind happens

I mean, we are humans after all

For example, i trashed my project the first time when i reached 6.000 entries

Now, i don't want to do something like that again

But up and down phases in collecting and sorting stuff for my project continue to exist

Anyway, in the end, i strongly think that it's better to live WITH a project, that WITHOUT one

Wow, although it is totally understandable I am sorry to hear this. I've been downloading your updates for what feels like decades, and on some level I thought they would last forever, but of course nothing does.

That's not far off, I think I started in 09-10, so it's getting close to a decade.

Anyway, I'm still around, some part of me just wants to call it quits, then there's the other part that keeps saying "come on, just for a little while longer, you know you want to"..
Ahh bugger me, what to do, what to do..

Sorry to hear that my friend. I hope you still visit EAB on a regularly basis.


And hey: does it mean that fat lazy KillerGorilla takes back his WHDLoad preinstall duty? He better do!

Ohh Retroplay that is very sad to hear.
I love your collection.
I would wish it would continue.

Calm down folks, I'm not done as of yet.
I said I might, it was not as in definitely.

One thing is sure though, I'm not leaving EAB, been here for "too" long to even think of that.

My mind works in periods - winter and summer. I am very interested in retro comps during winter and in vintage cars during summer. Now I feel the spring switch is coming, and another one will come in autumn. Every year the same...

thank you for these, I definitely understand the burnout/lack of interest feeling.

I think Predseda might be on to something here..

Actually, I've made a few menu driven HDFs of some of my favourites for a quick blast in WinUAE (A1200+4mb quickstart), more will follow as I go along or feel like it.
PS. none of them use kickemu so they're safe to upload.

Look in my user upload folder.

In fact guys, everything is absolutely normal. I m not all the time on the amiga. I have period of time where I focus on other platforms. This brings variety until I miss the amiga.
It s cyclic

Yeah, I also think that the fact that both of my A1200's decided to go belly-up didn't help on the matter either.
I'll stick to WinUAE for now, real Amiga hardware can be an expensive "love" affair to keep going.

Now that WinUAE have beamraced lagless vsync you really can tell the difference. It makes a huge difference.

Open it up to the community - take requests (and configurations, screengrabs etc) for genres that you don't personally like - adventures, strategy etc.

Maintain overall quality control, but continue building it.

you don't want to hand them to someone trusted ? John Hertell for example ?
Why don't you ask him ?

I think they are perfectly repairable so I don't want to part with them, just need to get it done at some point.
If I do that, I know I'll regret it later.

Besides I've spent a small fortune on accelerators, Indivision MK2, Cocolino, CF/SD adapters, floppy drives and so on.
