Software News   Software News : Poseidon v3.5
   posted by VooDoo on 24-Dec-2006 13:07:33 (1740 reads)
This info is from offcale Posedion Mlist!!

Poseidon V3.5 is available through the Trident update function. I will
upload it to my website in a few days aswell. It fixes the issues that
people reported about their keyfile not being accepted every time.

The bad news:

- Elbox products are no longer supported and hence no keyfiles will be
issued that will make the Spider work with Poseidon.

The good news:

- Registrations are possible again for the classic Amigas except for the

- Those, who already have a registered V3.x keyfile will not be affected by
this and can continue to use Poseidon V3.x and also the V3.5 update.

- There will be at least one further update for 68k next year.

Users registering for full personal licences have to use Poseidon V3.5, as
the keyfiles will not work with version below. I think this is a good
compromise for those wanting to use Poseidon for Amithlon, ArakAttack,
Thylacine etc.

Online registration through my website and Trident will be available in a
few minutes.

Merry x-mas.

PS: Demo timeouts are now more clearly marked in PoPo and the error log, so
you will know if it's due to keyfile problems.

Fortunately I don't use a Spider card anymore
Thanks Chris for your excellent work

I miss draggable screens in MorphOS... and do you? I know I'm in a minority unfortunately.

The good news: Elbox users can justify using a cracked version now as no other option is available.

The bad news: People who pay for a license could find themselves out of pocket if "someone" has an unprofessional personality clash with a business partner and decides that the paying consumer are worth targeting too.

It's a shame that development of key components of what makes the modern AmigaOS usable in this day and age are used to inflate the egos of individuals who seem to enjoy engaging in pissing contests in public.

Well I guess Xmas is the season for children to have fun.

Hmm not good.
User a Spider myself and have already registered for a full licence.
I don't work for Elbox, the only link is that I have bought some stuff off them.
Not sure why I am on the receiving end of this little war.

Shame he's withdrawing Spider USB support. I don't think it's fair on those who have paid for his program and use a Spider. I mean they're paying for the program whether they use a Spider, Subway or whatever else, right?
