How many amiga games do you have?

Ive done a search on this topic and it says all the above words were either too short/long or too common lol so ive decieded to ask anyway.

I know piracy is a bit of a grey area and certainly frowned upon on many other forums but i guess psp games are still being sold so thats understandable lol

I just wondered, if like me you like playing games on WINUAE, how many do you actually own? a few of the classics, hundereds or like me....

all of them? :-)

I got online in 2005 and replacing my broken, corrupt games was my 1st priority. I remembered in 96 having a version of project X with invicibility cheat and i accidentally copied over disk one with a song i had made in octamed. I was gutted as i got my games from friends at school and i had left years ago so replacing my game was impossible. After browsing the net i discovered a wonderful site called planetemu.net which is often mentioned on here for aquiring games so i guess its ok to talk about. I must have spent years downloading all my fave games and the gems i never had but wanted, such as dynamite dux and a trained version of double dragon 2.

Im a bit of a completist (if theres such a word) as with my emulators i use on my psp and pc, i like to have all the games/roms. My c64/amstrad/speccy/gameboy/snes/megadrive rom collections are pretty much 99% full. I recently discovered the complete collection of amiga games which was 11 1gb links from megaupload. I now have a pretty much complete amiga games collection. Its doubtful il ever play a quarter of the games but its nice to know thier all there if and when i fancy a browse.

Does you have a big collection of amiga games like me or just a few hundred favorites?

25 dvds? holy crap! mine would be around 4 or 5. I also downloaded a tosec a while ago but the games were FL images or something meaning they were copies of originals and needed a plugin for WINUAE to work them. As they didnt have trainers on i was a bit gutted lol Part of my childhood memories were all the amazing intros on games, from crystal to the amazing tune on oh no more lemmings, atomic robokid and many more :-)

I have around 15 boxed originals.

On my HDD I have about 700 titles. Been clearing them out slowly though the ones I don't play. Tend to stick with what I enjoyed back in the day

At the moment I own just one of the games on my WinUAE hard disk image.

When I eventually get a real Miggy again, I'll start (re)building an originals collection.

FL images?
I never heard about them...
Are they similar to .ipf images?
Where can be found?

Over 500+ originals.

Here is an incomplete list:
http://www.lemonamiga.com/games/orig...96&gameid=1020

Mainly due to the fact that LemonAmiga is missing quite a few Amiga Games.

Most likely closer to 600 or so, possibly more. I haven't counted in a long time.

excuse me mates

Does anyone know what these "FL images" are?
Is it an alternative format for protected disks?

I think FL = IPF?

There is a DLL (SPS Plugin) file floating around that will allow you to mount the image.

More info at http://www.softpres.org/download

The IPF images are, I believe unmodifed

WTF? Where on Earth do you store them all?

I only ever had 10, and have none now except for Beast 1.
