News    Amiga Future monthly News June 2022
  News posted by AndreasM on 29-Jun-2022 14:13:24 (549 reads)
The Amiga Future magazine #157 delayed by about a week
Amiga Future Ausgabe 157 verzögert sich um ca. eine Woche

Amiga Future monthly news to be discontinued

For many years we have had paged updates and other news related to the Amiga Future and APC&TCP in our published monthly news. The point of the matter was to offer good news updates for the Amiga, and not merely to flood you with just any kind of news message, which was well intentioned by us to save both time and effort. However, it was sadly often the case that many of those reports we released were already out of date.

So, we have decided to discontinue our monthly news with immediate effect.

In the future we will publish all such updates and news promptly and without any delay on these news channels, namely:

* APC&TCP website:
* Amiga Future webpage:
* Android App:
* AmigaOS 3.5 & 4.x Workbench Dockie:
* RSS Feed DE:
* RSS Feed EN:
* Twitter:
* Facebook:
* Instagram:
* email newsletters
* Though ... maybe something else will be added soon...

As you would expect, we will continue to publish any and all major reports we encounter on all well-known news websites, which also offer great service for news, and as a means to spread the news base of great breaking news stories throughout the Amiga community.
(Bear in mind that we also have a press mailing list)

Now follows on the latest monthly news June 2022:

  News posted by AndreasM on 19-Jun-2022 11:40:59 (332 reads)
These comprise of the full colour preview and excerpts of our Amiga Future issue 157 (July/August 2022) which can also be viewed online on the Amiga Future website.

Some of the interesting articles in this issue are:

Review Juniors Great Adventure
Review Devil's Temple - Son of the Kung-Fu Master
Special Amiga 37

Of course there's actually so MUCH more in the magazine.

Needless to say you will often get other versions of software, some of which were commercially available, as well as some of the latest try-outs or freely released software applications and games for, hopefully, every Amiga variant of Operating system, so that's Amiga 'Classic', OS4, MorphOS, and AROS, including some PD software for these systems, all on the Readers' cover CD.

A detailed description of the varied content and excerpts of our current issue can be found at:

The Amiga Future magazine is available both as an English and German printed magazine - each issue is printed in FULL COLOUR - directly available from our magazine editorial office and from various other Amiga dealers.

Important Notice!

All our Amiga Future subscribers should check that both your current postal and email addresses for you are correct that has been supplied by you to us.
The Amiga Future gets packed and shipped a few days prior to its actual release date. So, we need any change/correction to your address to be passed to us before we dispatch it, and in any case as soon as possible.
Bear in mind that: Usually requests to forward on mail will not be handled with such mail items, i.e. magazines!

We also ask that you check that your subscription fee(s) are current and up to date, i.e. already been paid, as some, in fact quite a few, subscription fees are still not currently fully paid.

    Announcement   Announcement: Amiga Future's 'Special Edition' for the "Amiga 37" event
      Announcement posted by AndreasM on 10-Jun-2022 11:24:08 (341 reads)
    Intense planning for the project has been ongoing for many months, but we wanted to wait until everything was finalised before we announced it publicly.

    That is, that there will be a 'Special Edition' of the Amiga Future for the Amiga 37 event.

    This 'Special Edition' will contain all the information you need to know about the Amiga 37 event. Which includes the hall layout plan for the event, its schedule, some voucher codes (e.g. Amiga Forever, C64 Forever), background information on the Amiga 37, interviews with the organisers of the Amiga 37 event and much, much more.

    All the articles to be published in the magazine will be in German and English.

    The magazine will be available free of charge for all Amiga 37 visitors directly at the entrance to the event.

    The 'Special Edition' is being provided by the Amiga 37 team in co-operation with our Amiga Future magazine editorial team.
    The entire issue is financed through advertising and APC&TCP, and in this context we are still able to offer companies page-space to advertise in this 'Special Edition'.

    If you are interested in your business being part of the 'Special Edition' Amiga 37 magazine, then please contact us without delay as page-space is limited, so we can advertise what you need to enhance your business at this fantastic event.

    News   Amiga Future monthly News May 2022
      News posted by AndreasM on 30-May-2022 10:04:36 (624 reads)
    APC&TCP has now been active for 30 years

    The APC&TCP computer club was founded more than 30 years ago, do any of you know exactly when?

    As one of the largest Amiga clubs worldwide, the question of how to better support all the programmers in the club came up relatively quickly. As our members produced some really good programs and games, but they all voiced their opinion that they weren't very happy with the commercial contracts that were offered by major publisher. After long deliberations, APC&TCP sales was founded in May 1992.

    The main task of sales was to market the club members' software as effectively as possible.

    The first software titles released through APC&TCP were; Databench and 1990. Other titles such as Kargon, Jaktar, Flyin High, Pinball Brain Damage, and many others, followed on relatively quickly by even more. More recently, APC&TCP has released software titles for the Amiga such as Roadshow, CygnusED, RESHOOT R, Tiny little Slug, Trap Runner, and there are other products that are already in their 'starting blocks'.

    Some time ago a shareware series was released, which comprised of a few dozen shareware titles that were marketed here by club members. Incidentally, APC&TCP blossomed relatively quickly into one of the cheapest PD diskette dealers in Germany.

    Initially there were also a number of third-party products in the range, which were mainly sold to club members. Though relatively quickly after that our range of goods reverted to being only our own products that were offered, apart from a few exceptions. One of those exceptions, by way of example, is the LOAD from VzEkC e.V. Issue 8, which will soon be available in the APC&TCP online shop.

    For many years, the NoCover floppy disk club magazine was also distributed through APC&TCP. Incidentally APC&TCP has been publishing the print magazine Amiga Future for over 20 years, and what's more, the Amiga Future will be reaching its 25th anniversary in January. Yes, the Amiga Future magazine is still being printed. :)

    Over the years, in addition to the many software titles released through APC&TCP, there has also been a whole range of merchandise produced by APC&TCP: such as, posters, mouse pads, mugs, stickers and much, much more.

    APC&TCP also took over the distribution of the Amiga Joker magazine, issues 17 and 19.

    Recently the VD Aktuell has also become available through APC&TCP.

    Over the years APC&TCP has remained very active, in many areas, though generally that is in the background, without Amiga users really being aware of their involvement. For example, APC&TCP took over the advance ticket sales for the Amiga trade fairs from ICP. So, it was a natural step for APC&TCP to present the Amiga at Gamescom in a show area of approx. 100 square metres.

    APC&TCP will be there, yet again, at the Amiga 37 in the autumn of 2022 and is also assisting the organisers to make the venture a success, as usual, in the background.

    Over the last 30 years, APC&TCP has released over 200 products for the Amiga, and there are also 125 NoCover issues. Additionally approx. 140 German and 80 English Amiga Future magazine issues have been printed during that time.

    After 30 years, APC&TCP actually seems to be one of the largest software publishers for the Amiga with a current 6-digit annual turnover. From which no-one has become super-wealthy here, it's just that the Amiga is simply great fun to use. :)

    Our main goal, currently, is to reach our 50th year anniversary, which would be something to really celebrate. In addition, we are always searching for entertaining games and applications, and where its programmer is also looking for a fair and reliable publisher. One of the great advantages of APC&TCP is that a programmer can have their say as to any choice of packaging, which is also one of the reasons why APC&TCP does not have any standardised or similar packaging from one product to another.

    If you are one of those gifted, and interested programmers, then please send an email to:

    software Classic   AmiSSL v5 now available
      software Classic posted by Futaura on 28-May-2022 11:12:59 (664 reads)
    AmiSSL v5 is now available for AmigaOS 3.x and 4.x. It brings OpenSSL 3.0 support to AmigaOS, including a built-in HTTP(S) client which we hope will be useful to developers. Applications using previous AmiSSL versions will not automatically start using AmiSSL v5, as they will need to be recompiled with the new SDK first (due to changes in the OpenSSL 3.0 API which break compatibility).
