BTTR Update

Back To The Roots has been updated. Here's a little exerpt of it

We should ask ourselves too, if Microsoft is interested in supporting Amiga lovers today. Luckily we can answer this question with "Yes, they are!"
In a surprising move (after more than two years of patience) we received permission from the Windows company for uploading some Amiga games which were developed by Access Software. Access Software is part of the giant Microsoft empire for some time now and was just renamed to Salt Lake Games. They've developed some of the best golf simulation games. Especially the "Links" series is well known worldwide.
Before "Links" will come online, we'd like to give you some older golf games from Access Software. Games placed extremely high in the list of games which have written history. We're talking about Leaderboard and World Class Leaderboard, so enjoy them. From other companies you can download Air Bucks (AGA), Guardian, Hugo 3, Mixed-up Mother Goose, Platou, Realms, Thexder, Fußball Total, mission disks for Vroom and Fighter Bomber and lots of other ADF games and HD versions.

Sweet. Microsoft have succumbed to the power of Bobic and Hippie2000

The BTTR crew have achieved the virtually unthinkable. I'm friggin' amazed.

Now if someone manages to convince them to make all their MS-DOS releases freeware....

Back To The Roots has been updated again, here is some info copied from the news page.

Back to the Roots - late new year's update
Hello and welcome to the first BTTR update in 2002! Once again we are happy to introduce a bunch of new members in the Back to the Roots team:

Robotriot, maintainer of many sites, such as V2, Ami Demos, Organic Material Revival and Elitepigs GameDevelopment decided to join the content of his other site cd32.de into the BTTR archive, and initiated by this a new subsection in our Games section called CD-Games.

CPC464, maintainer of the handy site Amiga Emulation for Beginners, from now on hosted at BTTR, decided to join his entire games series collection into the BTTR archive. For this we created a new subsection in our Disks section called Games-Disks.

Dynamo88, those of you who know BTTR since the early days surely remember him, is back in town again to help us grow this site further, currently by adding further CD images, which are horrible huge uploads. Welcome back, Dynamo88, where have you been that long? ;-)

More to come in the next update.
This update's huge again, nearly 2000 new entries, now let's see what we have prepared for you:
