Most "valuable" way to contribute to the Amiga gaming scene today

What is, in your opinion, the most "valuable" way to contribute to the Amiga gaming scene today
Multiple answers allowed
...of course, I am aware this is a mostly subjective poll, and enjoying what you're playing with is the most important thing !

Two more things I'd like to add to this poll:

- contributing into the community with old/new/rare/translated/ported software
- organizing/joining the Amiga meetings/parties

Making WHDLoad slaves, cracking games that were 'left out', finding games that aren't easily available and making new games or level editors. Like Sting said some minutes ago the 'game scene' is dead and except a very few people (Hi Sting ) nobody cracks Amiga games anymore. Distribute games? Well point out where to find them or share them. Of course making longplays is a nice thing too
Oh and out 'useful' discussions here of course

Of course, that too TCD!

A great number of choices you forgot I'm afraid, how about a re-do, Deleauvive?

Ok, can someone add this option "organizing/joining the Amiga meetings/parties", plz ?

Other things are a bit too specific, it's more a matter of finding out general tendencies.

So 'Close examination of games mechanisms, disassembling 'em when needed' does mean creatng WHDLoad slaves and cracking right? What about making new things which option covers that?

I agree with TCD. And must also add that new projects could be made to improve some existing games graphism/sound. Read somewhere about a Shadow of the Beast remake with 256 colors sprites, that sounds interesting. I would love to play those oldies again with better FX´s and even contribute somehow.

Good point Yoti Either improvements of Amiga games (making AGA versions) and remakes for other systems should also be included

I dont see "keeping amiga boards" alive, its very important, for a lot of people its the only way how to be in contact with other Amiga users. I got back into "amiga thing" thanks to amigagames.com and eab.

most importantly, where is the option for "develop Amiga software" ?

i think this would cover quite a lot of the parts mentioned above as other options!

Spot on Horace! That was exactly what I meant with 'making new games or level editors' (struggling to find the right term ). That is indeed the most valuable form of contributing to the Amiga gaming scene today
