Personal Paint - still better than anything I've found on the PC for doing that sort of pixel painting

Thank's for all the great suggestions :-)
I'm installing them one by one in a WB3.1 to try them out.
I had forgotten how nice the AmigaOS is - simple, powerful. It has aged surprisingly well. Now, I'll have a look at your suggestions to see if some software has aged equally well :-)

Whilst DiskSalv is indeed very good and puts most similar PC software to shame, it needn't have been like that.

Windows 95 beta versions featured a 16-bit ScanDisk program to check your hard drive for errors before installing the OS, and this program is the most simple and effective FAT16-formatted hard drive and floppy disk salvage program you could wish for. Dodgy sectors can be remapped to unused sectors on the disk and the originals marked bad. In each case, the remapped sector will be found to contain every single bit of data which could be read from the original sector. If just one bit was unreadable in the original sector, the rest of the data will be salvaged intact. The entire new sector will be readable; only the location and status of the bad bit will be uncertain.

For the release versions of Windows 95, the 16-bit ScanDisk program was replaced by a lame version which filled the remapped sectors with space characters ($20), and the 32-bit versions of ScanDisk were just the same.

Now ScanDisk has disappeared altogether, as well it might.

I got stuck on the first graphics program I tried. It's even more fun than I remembered :-)

I still find Amiga apps. to be useful: In more or less order, here are 'must-have' Amiga apps.. to this day.

ImageF/X .. NO, it's not a 'Photoshop killer', but about the best on the Amiga. I especially like the fact it can often load, and re-save both damaged ILBM's and .JPEG's.

Wordworth 7
Scenery Animator 4

Directory Opus 4.12 (Never liked newer versions)
Lightwave 5
Interchange Plus (3D object convertor, anything like this for the PC with support of Amiga 3D formats?)
Protracker
303 Emu2
OctaMED SoundStudio
Scala
AudioMaster IV
DCTV Paint
Deluxe Paint 5 (if you have tons of memory)
Deluxe Paint 4 (if you don't!)

A mess of 'axillary' graphics programs, like the Excellent Rend24... cloud and fractal generators, etc.

Nobody mentioned YAM/SimpleMail?! What I think is useful (additional): SnoopDOS, MultiRen, Scout/XOpa, HRTmon, AmIRC, DigiboosterPro, SoundFX, ... a lot more.

I would use Octamed Soundstudio for some tunes but I never got my prelude working as a toccata in Soundstudio ( it allegedly can be done but I gave up). Still mixing 8 bit sounds can be fun :-)

yea, you are totally right, daxb.. I missed a bunch of apps... I bet we ALL did... SnoopDos, and DigiBoosterPro Especially..
And, well... I have only gotten a small few Email programs to work.. but the '060 version of YAM is just PERFECT!

Oh, lemme add DrawStudio, LightWalker...
Synthia (IF you can figure it out! LOL!)
ArtEffect 4 (psst, anyone have an Amiga-comp. tablet + driver for cheap?)


etc, etc. ad nauseum.....



Ack! I forgot Photogenics! LOL!

ANIMATED is a dedicated anim creator and the pc has nothing that is even close. I do use WINUAE as i can have 8mb of chip and 64mb fast to produce my anims which is better than a real amiga. Then use WINUAE to save the output as an avi file then burn to a dvd. The amiga (even the its under emulation) simple cannot be beaten and these progs are nearl 20 years old!!
Hey, nice program, its very cool too! Its like a tiny non linear video editor but for animations!

I remember that I did read something about a program to edit animations in a AmigaWorld issue, and it looked like this program, this program should be it.

I still use Deluxe Paint+PPaint and ProTracker on my real Amigas.
Many things I want to do just feel more natural to do on them, that is how I learned to do things and that is the way I keep doing many of those things.

Other than that, it's mostly WHDLoad that I use on them, for gaming and demo watching.

Pagestream is outstanding. Hollywood/Designer. Another excellent little utility is WBAllocFast.
