Aminet 2

I'm looking for Aminet CD 2. As far as I know the first Aminet CD was released by Walnut Creek, but the 2nd was released by Schatztruhe.

It is one of the few I am missing. Anyone have it?

You can find Aminet CD 2 on the EAB file server (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43633) in the folder 'AminetCD/Stuff from the Aminet 01'. The 'SET1B' is CD 2

No! AFAIK, this is incorrect. Set 1 might contain all the files from Aminet CDs 1-4, plus a few extras, but they are not arranged in such a way that the CDs are equivalent.

Ah, okay. Thought they simply packed 4 CDs together.

@All,

The Aminet Sets are not equivalent to the individual Aminet CDs until Set 10.

This is what djp posted in the FTP Server thread just prior to uploading Sets 2-10 :

The text files I compiled, on which DH based the 'Important Files & Directories' notes on the EAB Aminet DVD covers, were prepared in accordance with the Aminet CDs 1-52 and Aminet Games CD.

Therefore, strictly speaking, these covers are not suitable for CDs from the Aminet Sets prior to Set 10.

Edit: I imagine that the reason why Aminet Set 10 is not, as you would expect, equivalent to Aminet CDs 37-40, is that the content from the Aminet Games CD was included in an earlier set.

@Anyone interested,

Of the Aminet CDs without an equivalent in the Aminet Sets (that is, Aminet CDs 1-35 and the Aminet Games CD), I have CDs 1, 3, 10, 15 and the Aminet Games CD.

My internet connection is still too flakey to start uploading large files by FTP. In November, I will be able to get around that problem by upgrading to a virtually unlimited service at no extra charge, just by signing up for a further two years.

In the meantime, if anyone is interested in a copy of any of these Aminet CDs, PM me and I will supply it FOC, on condition that they undertake to upload to the EAB Server for other users.

K, some research suggest that Walnut Creek may have released more than 1 Aminet CD.

The Schatztruhe CDs do start with Aminet 2. The Sets, as stated, don't line up with the CDs until Set 11. Set 1 is a complete mirror of the Aminet as it was in 1994 (minus some material they didn't have permission to include on CDs). However, the very early Aminet CDs include some material which was deleted from the Aminet before the release of Aminet Set 1.

I'd rather an original CD, but will take an ISO if anyone knows where I might find it.

This might not be right. My source for this was wiki.aminet.net/Aminet_CD_2

However, there is a dearth of into on Aminet CD 2.

Looking carefully at the review on Aminet of Aminet CD 3, it seems to suggest that CD 3 is the first produced by Schatztruhe with the new pricing (share and gold).

If you look at the release date given for Aminet CD 2 it co-incides with the snapshop date of one of the Walnut Creek CDs - Feb 1994. This CD has a black cover with purple highlights and a logo of yellow type on a red background.

Aminet CD (1) from Walnut Creek is the pink/purple cover.

So there exists some possibilities:
1. Walnut Creek released the first 2 Aminet CDs in June 1993 and March 1994 (snapshots of April 93 and Feb 94), and then Schatztruhe continued on with Aminet 3 (June 94)
2. Walnut Creek released 2 or more Aminet CDs, one of which was released at the same time as Aminet 2 by Schatztruhe.
3... Some other situation

Anyone able to remember this far back, or have reviews of Aminet CD 1, 2 or 3?

Correct. My Aminet Walnut Creek CDROM has the pink/purple cover and is dated April 1993 (the snapshot date). However, the disc itself is dated June 1993 (the release date).

AFAIK, this is correct, except that Aminet 3 was released in July 1994; though the snapshot date was probably June 1994.

My Schatztruhe Aminet 3 CD is dated July 1994. However, I do not have the cover and insert for this disc. I bought it brand new and sealed in 2005 from oldsoftware.com in Salt Lake City. The jewel case has a 'Made in Canada' sticker on the back, and the CD itself has 'Made in Canada' printed underneath the Compact Disc logo - the only Aminet CD in my collection to do so.

It's the Walnut Creek CDROM.

The front of the case is on a black background with an oval ( aminet ) (red background, yellow border, yellow text), and a rectangle [ AMIGA ] (green outer border, yellow inner border, red background and yellow text)..

Date (on CD) March 1994,and February 1994 (on the back)
