Anyone who is unhappy with their purchase of AF 6 Plus CD can they send it my way.. I wanna see what the KX Light boot option looks like but I am feeling too cheap to buy it just for that. After all WinUAE is free (thanks Toni!)

PM me for address

Yes, it is pointless debating stuff like this. But it still helps knowing what other thinks. Not many surprises there either...

Just as I said, use search engine or better yet, ask your friend Glwxxx what sites are closed. One of them is where most of us got their WHDLoad packs.

Don't forget, we don't have to agree. While I think Cloanto sucks, you are allowed to love it.

Exactly, most people will get it illegally as they should not have to pay for something that has no copywrite on it. It is killing the emulation scene.

The worst part, is that it'd be great if it were "fans", but, uncanny coincidence, it's always people who depend on Cloanto\"AmigaForever", to make cash.

Let's face it, the current status quo is totally immoral. Only the Amiga universe seems to put up with situations such as this.

He most definitly should!

Can you imagine the money Cloanto's owners are making?

How much does Toni Willen get payed for countless hours of work?

eSlavery, anyone?

The roms work very well, the only thing you have to do is copy it along with the keyfile on the directory of winuae or the emulator of your choice.
If you buyed previous AF packages, you can upgrade for free, as i done this morning with my 2005 premium upgrading it to 2006 premium and yes, including the 3.1 disks.
Note that i don't like the site down politic of cloanto, but the only way to get the roms legally are taking it from your amiga or buying Amiga forever.
If you had already an Amiga and cannot take the rom out, i don't see anything wrong in downloading it.
Just my two cents.

In the "dead" Amiga market, probably not much.

Well, how much have you payed Toni? Put your money where your mouth is here.

The difference is that Ultron is not making money off Toni's hard work.
