software OS4   software OS4 : Cinemaware® is Back on AmigaOS!
   posted by AlexC on 29-Jan-2013 4:44:53 (9138 reads)
Cinemaware in cooperation with Hyperion Entertainment are proud to announce the re-distribution of its classic Amiga 68K Cinemaware titles. Through the magic of emulation and genuine Amiga ROMs, you can once again play titles such as Defender of the Crown® on PowerPC-based AmigaOS systems with a simple double click of the mouse. Everything you need to run these classic Cinemaware games is already included in AmigaOS 4.1. There is even an option for using an original joystick via the Catweasel joystick driver for a truly nostalgic experience.

Click READ MORE for additional info:



All registered AmigaOS owners now have access to these Cinemaware games at www.hyperion-entertainment.biz in the downloads section. Customers can simply choose the games they are interested in and click download. Manuals are also included for a majority of the games.

AmigaOS has evolved from its humble beginnings on those original 68k systems and so has Cinemaware. Cinemaware not only has a brand new web site at www.cinemware.com, but Cinemaware titles are also available for iOS such as Defender of the Crown® and the upcoming The King of Chicago™. You can expect many more classic Cinemaware titles to be available on a portable device near you soon! Also keep an eye out for Cinemaware Kickstarter projects which will reboot your favorite titles with HD graphics and new gameplay content!

Hyperion Entertainment is offering these games as a free bonus for all its AmigaOS customers, and is distributing these games with the full cooperation of Cinemaware. Issues may be posted at support.amigaos.net where we will do our best to help you.

Nice. I'll download the files when I get home. Which reminds me, I really need to register my X1000 and OS4.1!

I must admit, I already own the originals of every Amiga Cinemaware game. Those were the days...

You mean you haven't yet updated your X1000 with the various updates issued at the registered users' download site?

Do note that you will need to do that, and especially apply update 6 with the AmiUpdate integration and download and install all updates it will offer you, before you are able to use these games.

Also make sure you run AmiUpdate again after each update you install, to make sure it offers no new updates. Some of them have dependencies on each other, so won't be offered until the predecessor is installed, and you have rebooted.

Best regards,

Niels

@Nibunnoichi
I think he's miffed that it's not available for (the now old 6 years old) AmigaOS 4.0 . (I also imagine that some people are miffed that Internet Explorer 9 is not available for Windows XP...)

Now wait a minute... haven't those ADF files been downloadable for free from Cinemawares web page for ages now? In which case this is just a big announcement of including something already freely available to every single person with access to an Amiga or an Amiga emulator.

Well maybe, but if you're going to redistribute something you need to ask promotion to do so, if you do not own it yourself. What I like to know is if what Cinemaware who asked if Hyperion was interested or if it was Hyperion who asked Cinemaware. How committed is Cinemaware to release new games for AmigaOS? What are Cinemaware future plans?

I like the initiative, some of these games where cool back in the 80's.

Not everyone has upgraded to 4.1.

If an up-to-date install of 4.1 is required to take advantage of this offer, it should be clearly stated.

Not miffed at all. Just pointing out a slight inaccuracy.

I don't see me having time to play any of those games anyway, even if I wanted to.

Well, if Microsoft announced it was available for all Windows users, they'd have every right to be.
But they didn't, did they?

You make several wrong assumptions in that statement... (I'll leave it to actual AmigaOS4.1 users to find out what.)
