I really like the Retro player which works equally as well with Classic productivity software as it does with games. I also like the integration with AmiKit & AmigaSys and the AROS taster.

Looking good.
Now there is more fun also for non-windows people: http://www.amigaforever.com/screenshots/kxlight-boot/


Commodore USA should bundle AmigaForever with their PCs!!!!!!!

Update:
Cloanto should use some multiplatform programming tools for their SW, like Hollywood.

Amiga Forever has been able to boot into a Linux based UAE since 2005ish! It's not new.

I have held off buying Amiga Forever for years but it seems to go from strength to strength, so maybe its time...

If they are going to designate it "Amiga Forever 2012", it should be released in 2012. Why confuse the issue with inaccurate designations?

Yeah, the kxlight is not new at all but it's really a nice thing IMO. This is as close we can come to an "updated" Amithlon today.

The sad part is that it works great as LiveCD but I havn't got it to work properly when I tried to install it. Dunno if this has been fixed, I would upgrade incase this is the case for sure.

@ Minuous

Most publishers do this so something isn't out of date as it is released. If you ever buy a monthly magazine, you will notice you are buying it a month before the month it says on the cover. Same can be said for Microsoft Office and the list goes on. Its just a marketing thing that has gone back a long time.

Great.
Maybe a day, AmigaForever will have AmigaOS4 ready to start on x86

I'm very happy AmigaForever now supports AmiKit, AmigaSYS and AROS. This gives it many thumbs up. However I still miss Amiga in the Box and ClassicWB therein. If the authors do not include their solutions into AF API, they will become obsolete. I hope they know it.

Alas I have tremendous problems with AF. For most games, despite that I select dual disk option, the player asks me for disquette switch. WHich makes most of those games unplayable at all (i.e. the resolution gets back to high and it requires a few clicking steps - taking several seconds).

I think it might be connected with the fact that sometimes second disk is considered bootable, like the first one. I suppose the error shows up in such cases.

Anyone have any clue? I'd appreciate.

Has anyone tested the AROS side of things on Amiga Forever? Are there any specifics? Is it Amiga Forever's own version?

Will get it to go with my Amiga Forever Video DVDs

Hope 2013 edit will include some AmigaOS 4 UAE with JIT installer and interfrace.

It would be about time to support AROS / MOS / OS4!

it starts up fine. It's been a long time since I played around with AROS so, I may have missed something important to know.

I tried installing lunapaint but it doesn't start.

and by "installing" I mean I opened the archive, coped the files to the AROS folder and added the assign to the userstartup file.

does not open

AROS is there already, and unless You write a decent PPC emulator, there's no way out there for AmigaOS and MorphOS.

Besides, one can run MorphOS on a cheap HW so no point to emulate PPC here, at all.
