@CD32freak

Some Amiga company already asked to Valve to port it. Simply Valve only works for Windows. No Mac port, no Linux port, no amiga port.

Newell the Valve CEO has worked for 13 years in the M$ offices.

Just for completeness sake, since this comes across a bit on the wrong side, the Radeon drivers are still the drivers from Forefront. Snap is currently being ported to OS 4 but not finished. The 3D drivers are Warp3D drivers (done by yours truely ).

@CD32freak
There is only one chance. Valve is going to release a new Half-Life 1 with the new Half-Life 2 engine (Source). Maybe they'll release for free the old HL1 engine...

@Rogue
Very good!!!

Q: Can we have a firm update on OS 4 release?

Ideally it should have already been released and every developer wants their stuff in there. End of August at latest. We will offer a lot of developer CD updates for download


Does this mean what I think it means for OS 4.0 full release???? That = "End of August at latest."????????

@Blaine

I think it refers to the downloadable update for OS4pre owners, but I'd be very happy to be proved wrong on that!
