software Classic   software Classic : AmiKit XE 11.2 - free gaming update
   posted by AmiKit on 9-Feb-2020 15:05:03 (917 reads)
Today's update brings a number of legendary games to your AmiKit! One of them is premiering on Amiga, actually. It's an action role-playing hack and slash game called 👹Diablo (shareware). Yes, that's right! And you can play it in a window on your Workbench too!





The same with 🌅Dune II - you can play it in a window thanks to OpenDUNE port which enhances the original version as well (note that you need the original games files).

We've also included a DOS emulator called DOSBox with several shareware games pre-installed like 🕌Prince of Persia 1 & 2, 💥Wolfenstein3D and 🍄SuperMario. Nice, right?

If you have kids, they will love 🦄Elfie the Unicorn! We've also included a special easy peasy version for them.

The update also contains a handful of important software updates and fixes. Enjoy!


HOW TU UPDATE TO v11.2?

It's a breeze - the update is free for all XE users. Simply boot your AmiKit XE and the new update will appear automatically. If you don't have AmiKit XE yet, check out our website for what you missed If you have older AmiKit X, there are special upgrade options for you!


WEBSITE

For details and complete changelog please visit www.amikit.amiga.sk
(note that a modern HTML5 browser is required)


OKAY, WHAT IS AMIKIT?

AmiKit turns your PC or Mac into powerful Amiga. AmiKit is a polished collection of 420 pre-installed AmigaOS3.x apps and retro games.

We've done all the hard work for you. Everything is pre-configured and well designed. Actually, it shows just how far ahead of its time the Amiga software design really was!

I am trying to get Amikit9 to run on my mac (10.14.6)
and Amikit cannot recognise my Cd drive, I have Amiga forever 2006, AmigaOS3.5, AmigaOS3.9, and 4.1 and 4.1FE cd's. I cant get anything recognised to install AmigaOS. It does not encourage me to spend money to get a newer version.

Hi Peter, for AmiKit to work on Mac, you need an AmigaOS image file - as explicitly stated in AmiKit 9 Installation Manual.

You can use Disk Utility to create ISO images in macOS. Click "File > New > Disk Image fromů" Just make sure to choose DVD/CD Master as the Image Format. As a result, you will get a .cdr image. Just rename it .iso and you should be good to go. Hope it helps.

If you need further assistance, please refer to AmiKit Support Forum at www.forum.amiga.sk or just drop me an email.

Cheers!
Jan

Amikit, can i have your email address, because I just cant get Amikit9 to recognise any of the four image files I have created. Thanks

In step 5 of your instructions, I have done everything asked
but the WinUAE window keeps asking fro me to insert the AmigaOS3.9 volume.
and it just dits there.

I left it like that for over an hour, thinking it may/or may not be installing AmigaOS

Turns out it wasn't

I have readm and re-read your instructions, but I cant see what I have not done

Any suggestions please


I have even tried adding a cd (E:) which shows the iso, but still no joy.

Hi Peter,

I've just installed old AmiKit 9 on my Mac and it worked fine. I've answered your post at AmiKit Support Forum and wrote some more precise instructions for you there. Hope they help. In any case you can contact me directly via a form on my website.

Cheers,
Jan
