We had enough trouble in the GAC. Thanks to Abmahnwesen, it's lucrative for lawyers to crawly the net for any adf image of a game, some company holds the rights to, that bought a company, that bought one of those bankrupt companies.

Really? GAC is still there. So nothing really bad happend imho. And all sites like Planetemu etc are still there, for the same reason. Nobody cares about 98% of the Amiga stuff.

Well my personal toughts about kickstarts and workbench.

Every amiga out there work with a kickstart, this means if you own an amiga, you should get freely a kickstart image with no fee, since you paid for it when you bought the machine.

Same applies for the workbench. Each amiga was sold with it, the 500 with 1.3, the 600 with 2.04, and the 1200 with 3.0 or 3.1.

The OS 3.5 and 3.9 are another story.

You see the point ? The emulation is in fact the problem if we look at the problem carefully, because Cloanto's mind is to say that many people use winuae (amiga emulated) and hence never paid the kickstart and workbench as softwares.

This means that owners of real hardware are for this very fact considered as pirating software when they already paid...... Theorically this is like you paid one time, but that's not enough, another application, you need to pay a second time.

i'll stop there with my rant. Classic amigas are dead machines, and should be considered as.

The GAC is there, as we don't link to planetemu.
The GAEB had several issues, which lead to the current rules - no links to anything, which isn't as legal as bttr.

Hi Hot Trout, How long does it usually take for the confirmation email to arrive? I registered but it's been half an hour and still no sign of it.

EDIT: Never mind, it's here now.

Great site hot trout!.
Why is that problem with sps images?. I mean, don't get me wrong, but are the sps guys bought all the games they have in sps format?. I'm not counting donations from people. So they don't use the ones haven't bought?. it's a bit difficult to understand. Maybe i'm misunderstanding something written in engglish as it isn't my main language.
Cheers!!!
