hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : New Amiga demo database frontend
   posted by buzz on 18-Dec-2009 18:58:43 (2372 reads)
Some of you may already be aware of the excellent site It contains a large comprehensive database of Amiga demos, but with a somewhat limited search facility. To remedy this we have created an alternative search interface to the collection... read more!

It can be found here at ExoticA - Amiga Scene Demo Database (Beta). Like the Modland and HVSC Search it includes a variety of ways to browse and search through the information.
We only display a small subset of the data at Bitworld, but we have provided a link to their site for further information. Please give it a try and give us any feedback on the ExoticA Forum (or here :) ). It is marked as beta for now, as there might be bugs, and new features are likely forthcoming.
Many thanks to zeg, Asle, Curt Cool and Menace (and the rest of the Bitworld team) for their help and co-operation.

Thanks Buzz, that's a nice addition.

On a related note, there is of course the archive file search too if one simply wants to find a particular file, quickly. It's not publically documented, but it has supported regex search patterns for ages. So if you wanted to download 9 Fingers by Spaceballs for example, then you could set your search string to "groups/s/spaceballs.*9fingers".*9fingers

It's super quick and regularly indexed for new content. Works with modland archive searching too.
