AMIKIT X - High grade integrated Amiga emulator releases today!


Unofficial conversion of AmiKit shown above

Quote:
Unlike last time when we thought Amiga Forever 7 was out and turned out to be a leaked beta changelog from an official EAB moderator, we are pleased to factually announce the high grade integrated Amiga emulator of 'AMIKIT X' is being released today Friday 19th May 2017. Originally developed as a main operating system for A.L.I.C.E. (A Laptop Incorporating Classic Experience), AmiKit has turned into a compilation of more than 350 pre-installed Amiga programs. An integrated emulator experience as a high-end AmigaOS configuration on Windows, Mac OS, Linux or Android systems

In changelog we can read quote
"- AMIKIT: Some legendary Amiga programs have been updated exclusively for AmiKit! Like AmiStart, AfA_OS, MCP, ShowAmiga96 and others!"

Afa_os 4.8 -> Anybody know what was changed in compare to 4.7 ? Same with MCP 1.49c what was changed ?

Well, it says "...AmiKit X (version 10) was specially developed for this laptop for almost 2 years.

Now you can enjoy AmiKit X even on your own computer!".

AmiKit X has become SuckWare now:
Congratulations, Jan! It seems that the last fragments of deceny and moral have gone down the "Rabbit Hole"!
No, I can't "enjoy AmiKit X" exploiting the Amiga community!

Come on, is 30 € that much for all that software that you can't get anywhere else?

It must have taken him years to make those players, icons, trackers and games.

Amikit is a simple mod to install on AmigaOS 3.9.
You need to buy:
Amiga roms
AmigaOS 3.9

or

Amiga Forever.

now you have to buy 3 package (or 2 if you buy amigaforever) to use it on Windows or tablet?
I think many people could be prefere AmigaSYS (this mod is available also on pendrive with linux) ready to be used on any platform that support USB.

but more and important question:
what has this "X" version to justifie this price?

Hi amikit, could you make something like amikit but with macos ???
I mean an esay installation to launch macos games with winuae because mac68k emulators on pc sucks !!!
You could ask to insert the mac roms and os-cd to install the mac os.
Not only mac emulators on pc are bullshit and mac emulators on amiga are difficult to use. Perhaps you could make an amikit which could support mac os too.
should be great : AMIKIT support now mac os 68k !!!
From the video i saw on youtube mac emulation is faster with winuae than with BasiliskII.

If you don't want to pay 30 euro for Amikit you should consider donating a little towards the new version of AmigaSYS, Dary would be grateful of the funds and it would bring the new release a lot faster.
AmigaSYS is my preferred distro of choice and has things that Amikit doesn't, like Amithlon and Linux support.

No, I don't think that he really requires any of my software, and no again, because I will never take any money for it.

Nice joke!

No, but indeed I once spent and lost a lot of money in CBM shares when Commodore went bankrupt in the 90's.
