What happened to all the apps??

I've been searching all over the web for apps to buy or download. Primarily graphics apps, but almost always come across nothing but games. I turned to Ebay and even there isn't much in the way of apps. Might bid on Cinema 4D, but can't find Imagine 3.0 or higher, Aladdin, Caligari, etc.. Any ideas?

I always wonder about this myself. I hope this doesn;t mean that some of the Amiga's famous software (ADPro, Lightwave etc) gets lost :eek.

I guess what it comes down to is that games were much more popular than apps with most people, so apps didn't get spread anywhere near as much. A lot of apps also require pretty powerful machines (for the time) - another reason for people not to bother copying them.

And perhaps those who actually paid several hundred pounds for the software didn't want to give it away for free .

Still, I suppose there are some collectors who simply collected everything and might have what you are looking for. I have copies of Imagine 3 and 4 - I'm putting 4 in the zone now. If you (or anyone else) needs 3 for some reason, just let me know.

@Oscar
Hey, I posted Caligari v2.4 and Aladdin 4D v2.1 to the Zone. My files are in a state of disarray at the moment, so I am unable to locate Cinema 4D, although it seems like I have it. Let me know if you need any other junk...I have buckets of this stuff.

Here's a pic of what happened the last time the friendly ghost got angry!

Ive got an original...

Cachet X-copy 2 disk with that little gagdet thing that goes between your amiga and disk drive.

It was so you could copy long track disks I think.

Only prob with it I found was that you couldnt do copies of copies on it.

I have a pretty good collection of copiers. Tetra Copy is the one where you can play Tetris while making dupes. It can be found on ALE Disk Copiers from the ALE page. If it's not there anymore, lemme know and I'll toss it up. I also have RatPac (the one with Pacman).

Don't quote me, but I thought it was Marauder II that had the pirate song on it. It's been YEARS. I tried running that from some compact, but it guru'd, so I tried it from the standalone disk and that wasn't it. Maybe Marauder I?

Anyway, I have a bunch of copier compacts, as well as standalone disks for them if anyone would like a flood...

I have some of those too, and in one of them Marauder II lies, and I never heard such sample (btw Marauder seems to need 1.3 to run)

I'll check out ALE! I thought it was offline?

Samurai: yeah that one looks like Pacman... *waka waka*

As we are here...

Twistin', was there ever a newer version of CLI-MATE released than 1.2? This is one of the best tools ever on the Amiga IMHO.
It must be more than 500 times I've already used it.
(In case you might ask, no, I couldn't ever accomodate to either DirOpus (hardly any good version for WB 1.3) or Disk Master. )

There may have been a newer version. I have all that info in a different database at home and will check. And I am sure I have every version ever released.

One dir util I was never able to embrace was Disk Master, even though a lot of my friends liked it (in the pre-Opus days). I started the dir util thing with CLImate, then moved over to ClickDOS, ClickDOS II and then (kicking and screaming) I finally advanced up to Directory Opus (I think I started with DOpus 2). One thing I learned was that once you get comfortable with a dir util, it becomes very difficult to switch over to a different one. The only conversion I made from my above list that was easy was from ClickDOS to ClickDOS II. I could never make the move from DOpus 4 to 5 (and never will!)

Some groovy stuff there, Dpainter. I see things already that I must leech from you. Lots of good educational software in there that you don't see very often. Lots of multimedia, gfx apps and just stuff. I'll bang up a gimme list.

Thanks, Big-Byte. I just haven't had the time to properly sit down and go through the beaucoup copiers trying to find that elusive app!

And thanks DPainter for all of those gloriously unique warez from my request list. The very fact that they weren't popular with the masses is what I find intriguing about them. And yes, I play each of them daily (usually just before going into work and right after I get home from work). My desktop backdrop is a montage of my fav moments from the Fun School games (I had to increase my system resolution to make room for more screens!)
