This sentence could be offend all GameBase collections (this EAB Section, i want to remember, is dedicated only to GameBase Projects) that in these many years has released many database about Amiga: mainly games and demos.
Of course it is very important that everyone can bring new collections about amiga to have more choice.

Man, what the hell are you on about???

I've been on EAB for over a decade now, a hard working moderator for at least the past 7 years plus an Amiga community contributor...

You don't think I know where best to post this thread on the forum I / we manage???

This is not only a *GameBase* section otherwise it would be called "project.GameBase"; it's about collections...

Do you see my good friend Belgarath complaining or anyone else???

Had a little chance to play with this. First game I played was Arkanoid. All I can say is that I am blown away. No longer do I have to pick each ROM to play. The point-click interface with game pics is just awesome!

Damien, Thank You Sir!

Don't thank me, thank the main man Toni Wilen for making all this possible

My collection is only about what he has done over past decades for the community; I haven't had a real Amiga for more than 20 years now, so otherwise this would never have seen the light of day...

Again all; I don't want anything in return for this gift but you should support this great "guru" by donating anything you can via: http://www.winuae.net/

That's all I want really!!!

Cheers for the feedback Sincity; much appreciated

My pleasure man!!!

Please, do enjoy; that's the point of this... an Amiga "fan" based collection for brothers that appreciate / remember...

There are many more gems to be found in my collection

Good man; mucho respect!!!

...I'll donate again very soon; probably have done well over €1000 so far but every € is most definitely worth it

Toni never sleeps / always helps out (no matter how dumb the thread / post is; with zero information / logs) and never asks for anything in return...

We all need to support this man; I don't know what would happen if he ever got *fed up* and decided that's it

He just helped me through my long load time with a stupid HID driver issue. Least I can do.

Hey, on an off note ...

While I had -log turned on, I noticed a lot of what seemed like "info" items logged about boxshots.

Is this because the boxshots are isolated with the ADF in a folder vice in some special folder? Just curious.

Totally normal when using -log

...see this thread when I was assisting Toni with ideas / implementation of this cool new feature; although obviously, he did all the hard / important work to make things reality; and as per usual; exceeding all expectations

Any questions you have, answers can be found there:

DamienD, first of all, thank you so very much for sending me the links. I really appreciate it. I have had a chance to check it out and WOW, you've done a fantastic job, and so has Toni with WinUAE.

I've only tried a couple of games so far, but they've worked perfectly, and I really appreciated the important keys in the Setup, although with my "Dory" memory, I have already forgot all the key combinations. Just keep swimming... Hi, I'm Dory!

So far there has been nothing I've wanted to change, and wow, what an overwhelming choice!

I was never much of a gamer, truth be told I'm still not, so many of these games I've never played, which makes this such an adventure of discovery.

So thank you so very much, this is already bringing me much joy, and the kids are having fun too!

I've finally had 10-15 mins to have a play of this build, and hats off to DamienD for the stella work hes put into this. It must have took hours to make it this slick! Every game I've tried do far worked flawlessly with no effort from my part. No messing, just install and play! Installed it on an i3 laptop with windows 10 that I take with me on business trips - no longer will I get bored at hotels!

Great work DamienD!

Received a good question via PM:

Quote:
I read comments about reg settings in the forum topic and thought I'd ask when it became relevant to ask. Will your reg settings in anyway affect an existing install of winuae?

I suppose I can find out, just wanted to be prepared. I imagine a lot of folks have their own winUAE setups so was wondering what running your setup may or may not interact with.
Yes, this will most definitely affect *your* own setup; hence why I say:


Firstly, you should backup your own WinUAE setup...

Export this key from the registry: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Arabuusimiehet]

If your WinUAE setup is in "C:\WinUAE" then rename it or move elsewhere.


...but you can run multiple different WinUAE setups

Mine is set to be registry based. With your setup you could have it in another directory, start WinUAE and then tick "Portable mode" from under "Paths".

Corrupt download

SOLVED!

I've read back through the threads and realised I needed the very latest v5.50 WinRar to unpack this! Anything less WILL result in an error


Hi DamienD,
I've tried to send you a PM, but your inbox is full again

The links you sent me, I've managed to corrupt most (if not all) of tghe rar's by downloading too much at once.

If there any chance you could send me replacement links please?

Regards
