I'll be buying this for sure!

I just hope that AmigaKit can package it this time so that the box is not squashed flat when it arrives.

Great

I whole hearted recommend Stans upgraded BPPC's they're awesome, unless you want a CSPPC for the A4000? Now that would be awesome

All the best.

Steve.

Luckily in this case production run means 'burn a few more CD's!

This is great news! well done to all involved! :-)

As for price

For most people they could acquire the money for this software by just staying home ONE weekend and not boozing there money up!

Pretend you're sick... LOL

eg I used to spend betwen $150 and $250 for ONE night out in town and quite a few weekends I'd go out Friday and Saturday... at the current exchange rate for NZ dollars for Euro that's 81.4157 euro to 135.692 euro, so I can't see the software being too much more expensive than that...

[OT]
Unfortunately I had to buy both my SAM computers when 1 NZ dollar was equal to 32 cents euro... I almost brought a SAM 460ex two days ago (exchange rate is 0.542771) but decided against it in the end, for the moment anyway LOL

Are they proper professionally made CD's, or CD-R's? I was very disappointed when I purchased 3.9 and it arrived on a burnt disc.

They should be done professionally like the discs for the other platforms. It will also come with a comprehensive install guide and large FAQ.

Didn't bother as it's not even the revised edition. So not only was it burnt, it was outdated as well.

Good news for those with the setups that can run it.

For me - the only *real* Ami I have is a 2000, back when I had some fundage for hobbies I tried to get a 1200 on ebay, but with not much luck (they seem to go real fast in the US and for more $ than I had disposable at the time).

The question in my head at the moment is 'Is the hardware setup required able to be emulated?'

If it could be, that would be pretty cool. It would be much more feasible to fix up the 'parts PC' and run it through an emulator than throwing buckets of money on ebay or on a SAM.

Can't emulate a PPC Amiga I'm afraid.

WOWEEE!! I'm SO excited about this. I'm definitely up for a copy. Still using OS3.9 which I bought for about a hundred quid years ago. Still got it in it's original packaging and it works fine (as I found out a couple of months back ).

Question: I've got an A1200 with BPPC and 40Mb RAM. I output through the AV connector straight into my LCD TV via SCART (picture's great). Will I be OK with this, or do I need to try and coax my non-functioning BVision card into life?

BTW - Slayer, you spend $250 in ONE NIGHT!! You are a total PARTY ANIMAL!!
