Ok No worries..i wont ask again....but

Just a quick question though....if i added on the webpage something like

I CONFIRM I ALREADY OWN THE ROMS INCLUDED IN THIS LAUNCHER AND AM LEGALLY DOWNLOADING IT

then unless you tick a box and agree you wont be able to download it.

Is that still a no ? only asking because 99% of us here do own amigas

If not then like i said i wont post about it again..

PS i deleted the other link in my other thread as well

People will just say they own them regardless.
Easiest thing to do is not include the copyrighted material and include a readme saying what files they need to run it but obviously not where to find them.
Anyone in the know will know where to get the said files.
Personally though I wouldnt even use this launcher myself there's nothing wrong with winuae and classic workbench imo.

No nothing at all !! if it wasnt for them the launcher wouldnt work... the idea was to install....point and click and play....no setup required

Ye probably like the " yes i am 18 years of age" on violent game websites ... It just makes it legal thats all

You would still offer copyrighted material. So, it's of course still a no.

@Bamiga2002....

the idea is so that the installer/launcher is all-in-one and there is no farting about for the end user.

Didn't bloodwych do something similar with Amiga Tribute II ??

Yes i know idea of this launcher and AGAIN a nice project is niffed down due to the infamous kickstart-issue. I doubt the AROS-kick is going to fix this right now at its current state, but surely it will evolve . We just have to wait and support the AROS development for 68k.

@Bamiga2002....

agreed.

"We just have to wait and support the AROS development for 68k"

again... agree with you 100% mate, shame that KS after all this time is still proving to be a stumbling block for innovation and invention.

KS Roms to be open source and free to distribute would be a good start!

is there an easy way of letting people put their own kickstart roms in so they don't have to be part of the download?I know it's stopping it from being install and play but having to point to a kickstart rom on my own computer is better than no launcher at all.

re: DVD.... Sent to me I thinks

Still use that DVD on both the XB and current PC, dunno why I thought it was Bloodwych?

As you say, didn't seem to cause a stir a few years ago with regards to KS roms

yup 'tis a shame that since then, certain individuals have caused holy hell about packs with roms in them.

I really appreciate Synchros efforts. I fondly remember receiving a Tribute DVD too.

I don't see so difficult if you leave an empty folder and you only give the instruction to put there the roms. I've already got Amiga Forever to get them.

Ye im gonna relook at it and see what i can do....The problem really stems from people selling stuff with the roms in...My stuff has always been free...in fact its cost me a fair bit over the years.

I wish commodore USA had bought the rights at the same time they bought the name....Im sure they would just have let project builders use them as long as there was no charge

It's been some months. I think you've just added it to your web, but I've just tried it in Windows 7 64bits and it wasn't running fine.

Ok, it works perfect now. All what it was needing was Null Filter...
Now it only needs some icon like the Commodore or Snes ones.
Excellent job.
