Übersee, August 4, 2019
The official RESHOOT R mouse pad is now available in the APC&TCP online shop at the URL https://www.amigashop.org
Actually, the mousepad should not be released until the Amiga 34 in Neuss.
But as several users have asked again and again, we have decided to publish the mouse pad already now.
We hope you like the mouse pad.

The Amiga34 is an Amiga event that takes place for the third time on the 12th and 13th of October 2019 at the Rheinische Landestheater Neuss.
After the AMIGA was completely sold out in Neuss the last two times and many users had no opportunity to visit the fair, this year it takes place on two days. Nevertheless, we recommend everyone to secure a ticket for the event as early as possible. In addition, you should take care in time for a place to stay.

Interview Richard Loewenstein
Of course there's so MUCH more actually in the magazine.
Needless to say you often get other versions of software, often what was commercially available, as well as some of the latest try-outs or freely released software applications and games for, hopefully, all of the Amiga type Operating systems, so that's Amiga 'Classic', OS4, MorphOS, and AROS, including some PD software for these systems, all on the Readers' cover CD.
A detailed description of content and excerpts of this current issue can be found at: http://www.amigafuture.de/kb.php?mode=cat&cat=13
The Amiga Future magazine is available as an English and German printed magazine - every issue is available in FULL COLOUR - directly available from the magazine editorial office and also from various other Amiga dealers.
Amiga Future: Again at Gamescom
Also this year the Amiga Future will be represented with APC & TCP on the Gamescom in the retro area.
Visitors can get detailed information about the AMIGA computer system from the almost 90m² booth and, of course, also test more than 20 devices on site.
The Amiga Future Team will surely be able to answer all your questions about Amiga.
As guests of honor we have Trevor from A-EON Technology on Tuesday and Wednesday and Petro Tyschtschenko on Saturday at the stand.
In addition, the Apollo team shows the brand new Vampire4. You can test the Vampire4 in detail and the developers are also available for questions.
But we also have two IndieGO systems on our stand, which of course can be thoroughly tested.
Of course, Pascal Papara is also here ready to answer all your questions.
Since we can not (yet) be in two places at the same time, no orders will be sent from 17 to 27 August in our online shop.
This also applies to download versions. Emails can only be answered after Gamescom. We ask for patience.
It may take some time before all orders and emails can be processed.
Amiga Future 139 German - sold out
The German edition of the Amiga Future # 139 is now sold out.

To all collectors: It will happen in the near future more often that German Amiga Future issues are sold out relatively early.

Amiga Future webpage maintenance
>From the 7th to the 8th of September 2019, extensive maintenance will take be done on the Amiga Future webpage.
As a result, on both of these days the webpage is completely offline or very limited available.
On 9.9.2019 theoretically everything should work again. But it can of course be limited by some small mistakes for a few days.
Our other websites, such as our online shop, are not affected by the maintenance (at least theoretically).
