Not for CD32 owners, the disc isn't bootable!

Your right. I forgot about the floppy discs. Lol. Might need a cd drive for reshoot though. Tanks furry has a floppy too.

SORRY I totally misread you! Haha I apologize.

What is the point of the CD then? I Don't understand these releases, same with Reshoot. Release in floppy, nobody needs discs, if we do, we want them to boot on CD32

I appreciate CD, if it is pressed and not burnt (which I am not sure). I am still awaiting my Solid Gold to arrive, but my order status is not shipped yet.

Reshoot booted on CD32 so that was fine.
I guess it's cheaper to get 500 discs pressed for 300 euros than the equivalent price in floppys, though saying that it comes with the floppy too!? I don't get it either then

Sadly, the Solid Gold CD is a burned one.

You get an extra level that does not exists in the free version. You also get some extras if you buy the CD + you support the author

Probably sound like a broken record but... I really have no need for a box, CD or extra stuff.

I would just like to purchase the new updated .ADF (with extra level) if possible.

@phx; could you possibly make this available as a digital download?

Guess it's time for an Amiga software download shop, where people can support coders with a paid download.

Just a bit of a bump really...

@phx; would really love to be able to purchase just the updated .ADF from you. Is this possible somehow i.e. PayPal / other?

Maybe I will offer it for free download some day, when Adam has sold all his boxes.

Otherwise I'm sure everybody can contact Adam (http://amiga.net.pl/ ) and ask him for a copy. He will certainly find a solution.
