Thanks A list like this will always miss something. There is always some game that should have been added But it's easy to extend the list by opening the list in Word and just continue from slot 513 and outwards. then assign the games.

Oh, and this is also one of the reasons why I left the 20 first slots empty. If someone had some favourite games that wasn't assigned to my list then they could add them to the first slots. But it really does not matter what slots you put them in as long as you have a tracklist. Cycling through the slots is very fast.

If anyone wishes me to make a 4GB USB drive image just let me know. I also have a 4GB stick with all the games on. But I need to assign all the games on that one because I cannot write my 8GB image to the 4GB one. I need to assign the list then make a new image for 4GB stick. So for now you will need minimum 8GB stick to use the image that is up for download.

Have updated with extra download links in first post. These are hosted on my Google drive.

Maybe this thread could be made sticky?

Hehe, I was about to comment about the first "A500 Gotek Top Games"-pack that there's a lot of my own personal favorites missing as well.

It would be cool if there would be different game-pack versions for different-sized memory sticks, i.e. 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, basically up until the 999 disk limit. It's a bit of a pain to check out all different disk images out there and see which ones work 100%.

My personal favorites that were missing from the first games set were titles such as: Darkseed, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Ski Or Die, Body Blows Galactic, Hostages, Weird Dreams -- to mention a few ...

Other than that, keep up the good work Now downloading the 2nd edition and checking it out

Thanks. It would almost be impossible for me to know what games everyone likes. But the games I put in the tracklist are very known and popular games I believe. Anyway, its very easy for people that download this to just extend the list and assign more games to the list. Also, as I said, the first 20 slots are empty and from 513 and outwards are also empty.

I'm currently working on the 4GB image which contains the exact same archive. For people with 4GB USB drives of course. I will probably not bother with anything more than 8GB because even with the game base and alot of demos on, it is still just half full. The 4GB version however is almost full.

Oh, and if it turns out some ADF games dont work, just switch out the ADFs with another version. As long as you use the exact same filename and just overwrite the previous ones you dont need to assign it again.

Please let me know how it goes!

So I'm currently creating the 4GB USB drive image. My 4GB USB drive is 3.75GB and 11MB of free space on it. Exactly the same stuff that is on my 8GB image with the same tracklist. I will put up the image later. In order to use this image the 4GB USB stick it will be written to must be exactly the same size or bigger. If smaller then the USB image pogram will state that it cannot verify and it may not work.

Maybe you two could give me a list of all your favourite games that is not on my list and I could see about adding them.

This might be a bit off, didn't double check the list, some titles that I remembered and have now tried out + found them pretty good actually.

APB (hilarious arcade)
Barbarian II - Axe of Rage
Battle Squadron (a typical shoot'em up but I love the music)
Body Blows Galactic (essential punch-yer-friends title )
Budokan - The Martial Spirit (loved this as kid, was on the PC as well)
Darkseed (didn't remember that it was 7 disks, oh dear - but the artwork in this dark adventure game is by the late H.R.Giger)
Dogs of War (excellent shoot'em up)
Double Dragon II
Double Dragon III - The Rosetta Stone
Firepower (an excellent multiplayer tank game, you can even play this on two computers over a null-modem or a regular modem connection)
Gauntlet II
Gauntlet III (not as good as I or II but ..)
Ghostbusters 2 (pretty good actually, I sort of put this one on par with Batman The Movie)
Golden Axe
Gravity-Force
Hard Drivin'
Hostages
Monty Python's Flying Circus
Motörhead
Narco Police
Neuromancer (a cult classic adventure, based on William Gibson's book)
Nitro
Fire Force
P.O.W.
Rampage
Rampart
Predator
Predator 2
Road Blasters
Ski Or Die! (a must have)
Stardust
Street Fighter
Street Fighter II Turbo
Terminator 2
Viz (The Soft Floppy One)
Weird Dreams
Werner Flaschbier

BTW, I'm using an Amiga 500 with the Amiga Forever Kickstart 3.x ROM and I've noticed that I have to use relokick to load Kickstart v1.3 on most of the titles I've tried from various sources if I want them to run properly (at first I thought it was the floppies that had gone bad). Even the Relokick doesn't always help, so I'm really looking forward to the day when I'll find myself a Kickstart switcher unit so that I can switch between Kick1.3 and 3.X with no extra hassle ...

I'll have to try to refresh my memory with the old game titles someday soon. Cheers!

Thanks for the list Not sure if I will do another upload as most of these games are probably on the USB drive images anyway and can easily be assigned. Then as I said, the list could easily be extended.

Is there any reason you use Kickstart 3.x on that Amiga 500? Using Kippers memory/CF card expansion? I prefer to keep my Amiga 500s with kickstart 1.2/1.3 for use with floppy loading. Of course I have both A1200 and A600 for whdload and also have ACA 500 with ACA 1221 which I can plug into any of my Amiga 500s if I want.

I was supposed to get a CF card reader-HDD extension, namely the ACA500, so that's the reason for the Kick3.x (no more disk swaps, Kickstart 1.3 can be loaded into memory for backwards compatibility and so forth). Sadly, all the ACA500 boards were sold out by the time I got my A500 running, so now I'm waiting for Individual Computers to hopefully come up with the ACA500plus (a new revision of the board) sometime soon. One other option I've been waiting for is A500Flash from Retro 7-Bit, at least the idea in itself seems fantastic. A keyboard-switchable Kickstart ROM and then some.

I have the ACA 500 with the ACA 1221. ACA 500 has both kickstart 3.1 and 1.3 built in. The ACA 500 without an add on accelerator is not very useful for whdload. I guess you put that Kickstart 3.1 in there to save 0.5MB mem on the ACA 500.
