Amiga Future Archive DVD # 5 now available
The Amiga Future Archive DVD # 5 has now been released to buy.
These are professionally mastered discs, so they include a colour image printed onto the upper surface of the DVD9 disc which contains over 6 GB of data. Even though it might not be a problem in principle, please make sure that your optical drive can read DVD9 discs.
You will also require a PDF viewer that can read at least 1.5 of the PDF standard.
On this Amiga Future Archive DVD # 5 you will find the following issues of the Amiga Future magazine as PDFs:
German: Amiga Future issues 11 - 142
English: Amiga Future issues 67 - 142
The issues 11 to 26 have needed to be scanned as the original articles text and image data was no longer available, which is not ideal, but was the only way to include these issues. So, unfortunately, their quality is not exactly perfect.
However, all the other issues, both German and English are actually very high quality PDFs.
Issue 11 was the first German Amiga Future issue that was published.
Issue 67 was the first English magazine of the Amiga Future.
So there are over 20 years of Amiga Future history on this DVD.
Sadly there is no way to offer an update option for purchases of earlier versions of the Amiga Future Archive DVD, which we trust you will understand.

Translator for the print edition of the Amiga Future
The Amiga Future is in German and English.
As a result, articles have to be translated into each respective language.
We have sufficient translators for the Amiga Future.
However, when it comes to submitting articles, many text files need to be translated in a relatively short time. This is our famous bottleneck that regularly creates undue and unwelcome stress to all.
So, we want to permanently solve this problem.
To alleviate this problem, we are looking for more translators to bolster support for our printed issues of Amiga Future.
Amiga Future 152 Member-Preview online
From today and applying to all Amiga Future 1-Year-Subscribers you can find in the Member's Part of the Webpage the online Preview and Reading try-outs of Amiga Future magazine - Issue 152.
Please note our advertising partners
On the Amiga Future webpage we offer you a huge free content all about the Amiga.
Because the Amiga Future is a non-profit project, the Amiga Future homepage has to finance itself completely.
The homepage, which is currently around 30 GB in size, is funded without exception through advertising, donations and our own private funds.
Programming new extensions, databases or features really costs a lot.
At the top of the webpage there are several banners from our advertising partners. We also have advertising in the left navigation bar.
Through these web partners we finance the server and programming costs of the Amiga Future webpage.
We would be happy if you pay attention to this advertising and that will ensure that there is still enough advertising on the Amiga Future webpage to finance it adequately.
The Amiga Future magazine - Issue 152 preview is now available to view online
This is the full colour preview and excerpts of the Amiga Future issue 152 (September/October 2021) can now be viewed online on the Amiga Future website.
Some of the interesting articles in this issue are:
Review Dark Angel
Review Freeway – USB-Card Zorro II
Special Trevors Soapbox
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.
We ask all Amiga Future subscribers to check whether we have the current postal address and email address of you.
The Amiga Future will be packed and shipped a few days before the release date. We therefore need a change of address as soon as possible.
Important: Requests for forwarding normally do not work with magazines!
We also ask you to check whether any subscription bills have already been paid. Unfortunately, many subscription bills are currently still unpaid.
Gamescom 2021 & Amiga Future
Also this year the Amiga Future is part of the digital Gamescom.
But of course not only the Amiga Future is represented in the retro area of Gamescom.
There you will also find many other well-known greats of the retro community.
Gamescom will take place from August 25th to 27th, 2021.
Gamescom will open its digital gates on Wednesday at 7.30 p.m.
The Retro Area and Cosplay Village in gather.town will be officially open from Wednesday at 3 p.m. Link: https://bit.ly/gatherarea
Amiga Future Promotion: Sample issue for 1 cent
Many Amiga users still don't know of the Amiga Future magazine. Sadly, all the events and fairs where you could have met magazine staff and looked through an Amiga Future issue have been cancelled this year. That's why we decided to offer you some sample issues.
We want you to become familiar with the magazine and feel the benefits it has to offer, so we hope you will consider ordering a subscription to the Amiga Future magazine.
Anyway, you can order a sample issue of the Amiga Future from our online shop https://www.amigashop.org for only 1 cent plus shipping costs. We are sure you understand that we need to charge shipping costs, as we're a hobby publisher.
The sample issue is merely an older regular issue of the Amiga Future.
Via the URL https://www.amigashop.org/product_info.php?products_id=321 you can choose to receive either the German or English sample issue.
The sample issue may suffer a slight delay of just a few days, as the latest edition of the Amiga Future is due to be released in the next few days, so as a result we are still extremely busy finalising that issue.
We cannot estimate how great the interest might be in these sample issues, but in any case there is no time limit on this offer, but once the sample issues are no longer listed in the shop, all sold, then the campaign and being able to buy one of these samples, will end.
Here is a link to the information about the Amiga Future: https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/info/
In any case you can find and read, for free, more than 100 issues of the Amiga Future online: https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/kb/index
You can also find us on: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and there is also a free Android app. https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/everywhere
Pre-order the new Amiga Future issue now
The preview of the new Amiga Future has recently been online.
Now would be the ideal time to pre-order the new edition. Of course, only if you haven't already done so.
This is the fastest way to have the new Amiga Future magazine at home. The pre-orders are sent at the same time as the subscriptions.
Btw: Perhaps you'd prefer an annual subscription?
It couldn't be safer if you don't want to miss any issue of the magazine.
We only increased the print run of the Amiga Future some time ago, but at some point even this amount will no longer be sufficient.
Unfortunately, some users felt this shortly before the last increase in circulation. Of course that wasn't planned by us, but unfortunately there was no other way.
You can find the contents of the new Amiga Future and of course all of the already published booklets at the address ...
Single issues can be ordered here: https://www.amigashop.org/index.php?cPath=23
And for the sake of clarity, you can order the subscriptions here: https://www.amigashop.org/index.php?cPath=41
Amiga Future 152 Member-CD-Cover online
From today, and available online to all Amiga Future 1-Year-Subscribers, in the Member-Part of the Webpage are the CD Covers of Amiga Future magazine - Issue 152, so you can download them, and print them out if you wish to save you from cutting out those pages from our beloved magazine.
Amiga Future: cheats database Update
The cheats database of Amiga Future is updated weekly by David Jahn, even if at first sight that is not immediately apparent.
The cheat database on the Amiga Future webpage is probably the largest German collection for the Amiga.
This doesn't just cover cheats, as many solutions, tips and tricks, as well as Freezer addresses can be found in the collection.
Don't forget you can find more than 3400 Games Cheats and solutions in the database, and there are always more being added.
The database is currently entirely in German, but if we receive enough donations for the website, we have plans to integrate a full-blown online database, which will also be available in English.
