News of Free 060 Like Apollo Core License
Posted by Djole501 - 07 November 2017 19:22
Fast translate from:


Fast 68040 or 68060 CPUs are not to be found in quantities.
Therefore, it is difficult to build new 68060 cards.

The APOLLO team offers a number of very fast 68K maps -
but we think shared joy is a double joy.

We would therefore like to discuss the following suggestion:
To support hardware developers, we would like to make the following offer:

We offer hardware developers a
_FREE_ 68080 CORE that is
compatible with the 68040/68060
and is set to about 68040/68060 speed.

The core is FREE for hardware developers.
The core also contains the AMMX2 instruction set.
This means that software compatibility with vampire software such as new JPEG decoder, video player and some game ports remains.

The Core boots with over 100 Sysinfo MIPS and after some time down to 68040 @ 40/68060 @ 50 level.

The supported hardware cards are subject to some reasonable conditions. That means the FPGA has to be big enough to offer a complete, fully compatible core space. The cards must be intended for the general public. The offer is not valid for single pieces and Pershingraketen.

We are looking forward to your feedback.

Alfredo's Perilous Pitfall - Released!
Posted by ricky500 - 05 November 2017 02:05

Download the ADF image from Aminet:

Or download the ADF image from the link on the Binary Legends forum:,860.0.html

For those of you not familiar with Alfredo - he is a stick figure that was the star of little animation "demos" on the Softdisk Publishing line of disk magazines back in the 1980's.

Alfredo originally debuted in Alfredo’s Lost Cause by Matthew Heeschen. This first Alfredo adventure was published in 1985 on Softdisk for the Apple II. Mike Nuzzo would go on to create several more Alfredo adventures / animations that would also be published on the Softdisk magazine.

Some of the Alfredo adventures were ported to the Commodore 64 for the Loadstar magazine as well as for MS-DOS machines for the Big Blue Disk magazine.

Back in the year 2000, I programmed two original Alfredo animations for the Commodore 64 - The Return of Alfredo and Alfredo’s Perilous Pitfall. They were both published on Loadstar which was still being published at the time.

Now thanks to AMOS, Alfredo makes his Amiga debut in this port of my C64 original.

This project was started back in 2012. I wanted to learn AMOS and I figured that this would be a fun little project for my first AMOS program. This was something that I would pick up once in awhile and do some coding on and then put away for months… But now I finally got around to wrapping it up.

When I coded Alfredo’s Perilous Pitfall, I tried to imitate the style of the original Alfredo adventures, so it has VERY basic 8-bit vector style graphics.

Enjoy this little animation. Also included on this disk is the AMOS source code if you want to look at it, modify it, or maybe learn from it.

Note: The mouse pointer does not disappear, as while testing, I found that using AMOS’s HIDE command would cause a GURU on one of the lift scenes. My guess is that since I used a hardware sprite for the lift it may have caused some kind of conflict? Anyways, I am too lazy to try to figure it out at the moment, so just move the mouse pointer off the corner of the screen, if it is in your way. :-)

If you have any questions or comments, you can email me at:

Visit the Binary Legends website for more info on our other releases - you can also download the C64 original of Alfredo’s Perilous Pitfall.

AmigaOS 3.1.4 beta!
Posted by Akira - 30 October 2017 16:57
Akira's Avatar  In my opinion possibly one of the most interesting things to be shown at Amiga32 from what I heard this weekend, and sadly not mentioned much, is the showing of a new version of AmigaOS 3.1 by Hyperion. Caught it on FB thanks to EAB user SimonV, all credit to him who was showing it at the expo! Photos pinched from there.

Olaf has talked about this a bit here, but I think this is the first time it's shown in the wild, and it actually sounds really exciting.

I transcribe here a sum-up of the text of the "What's new?":

Updated AmigaOS 3.1 by Thomas Richter and Olaf Barthel

Lots of bug fixes and:
- Fast File System with native 64-bit support for NSD, TD64 and direct SCSI, long filenames and resizable media support
- CrossDOS with native 64-bit support for NSD, TD64 and direct SCSI support, long filenames and resizable media support, new mfm.device
- Format, DiskCopy and HDToolbox with 64-bit support based on NSD, TD64 and direct SCSI support, plus bug fixes
- C:Mount for large media, direct SCSI support and resizable removable media
- Working soft links for the RAM disk and Fast File System
- Shell tools with long filename support, softlinks and large media support
- Math libraries that reconfigure themselves when an FPU becomes available after loading.
- New DIR command with nicely formatted output
- New Workbench that also copies links
- CPU command with 68060 support
- exec.library that no longer dies on 68060
- SetPatch, without NSDPatch and RomUpdates (not needed anymore)
- Intuition with off-screen window dragging
- aux-handler now completely rewritten in C. No more BCPL code in AmigaOS!
- More bugfixed portions: audio.device, asl.library, Compugraphic fonts, diskfont and fixfonts, icon.library, iffparse.library, Installer, iPrefs, Locale, parallel and serial devices, RAMlib and RAMdrive, rexxsyslib, scsi.device, speak-handler, More, and others
- Added V45 layers.library, V45 execute command, V46 Shell

Hopefully we get to see this released soon!

Game must be stared from main executable file located in bin/impsbru. In AmigaDOS CLI you can use following commands:
1> cd impsbru/bin
1> impsbru

escape / backspace - exits the game
return / space - enters to map editor
Map Editor

Create, Start point and Destination point steps

z / x / c - toggles element at south west / south / south east direction of the cursor, if possible
u / i / o - moves cursor at north west / north / north east direction, if possible
m / , / . - moves cursor at south west / south / south east direction, if possible
escape / backspace - goes back to previous step or exists menu
return / space - goes to next step, if step requirements are met
1 to 0 - loads example map from one of 10 slots

Play / test step
q / w / e - moves cube at north west / north / north east direction of the cursor, if possible

APPBuilder is a tool that can drastically increase your Hollywood multimedia language productivity, infact with APPBuilder you can compile and pack your cross-platform project with a single click without bothering with long shell commands.

In a standard environment, if you will to target multiple platforms and you are using plugins, you would have to build your executables and manually you have to pack them including the right plugin for every target OS. This process can lead to mistakes, copying the wrong plugin or putting it in the wrong folder. If you are building your applications for multiple platforms this utility is a must have!

This application let you choice for which target platforms you want to build, you set up your main source and what Hollywood plugins your application needs, and you are done: APPBuilder will manage for you all the boring things like copying the correct plugin version in the correct target platform folder.

New Game Released - Crazy Priest
Posted by aszu - 22 October 2017 16:30
aszu's Avatar  ]

The game's development started in Spring 2015, when Sordan made decision to learn Amos programming language. I (aszu) have joined him, creating graphics and, consequently, this projected evolved into simple game. Shortly afterwards we were able to show first playable demo. At one point a musician (JMD) joined our team and at the Retrokomp/Loaderror 2015 party we have released first official playable demo.

Two years later, and at Retrokomp/Loaderror 2017 party, we have released full game! It has been long time but we have managed to finish it and the game was ranked 3rd in the Game Dev Compo.

There are two modes: single player, consisting of 16 levels and multiplayer (2 players only) with 8 additional levels.


68020+2MB RAM


programming: Sordan
gfx : aszu
msx: JMD
Game is freeware.

Voyager from VaporWare released under GPL
Posted by Locutus - 19 October 2017 09:15
The old Web Browser Voyager by VaporWare has been released under the GPLv3

A nice piece of history preservation here and there is quite some curious stuff in the code such as support for running on CaOS the AmigaOS-clone for the Met@Box/PIOS, which i never knew if it ever got up to the point of working.

However, don't get your hopes up that someone can update this to a 'modern browser' :-)

LAG Bookings Confirmed for 2018.
Posted by rockape - 18 October 2017 23:57
rockape's Avatar  Hi,

LAG Bookings Confirmed for 2018.

After delivering a letter by hand a few days ago requesting dates for our LAG meetings to be held in "The Welton Room" in the "Welton Village Hall" next year I received a txt *confirming* the dates today as follows.
  • LAG 58 Saturday 3rd of February.
  • LAG 59 Saturday 7th of April.
  • LAG 60 Saturday 2nd of June.
  • LAG 61 Saturday 4th of August.
  • LAG 62 Saturday 6th of October.
  • LAG 63 Saturday 1st of December.
Please keep you're eye's peeled on for any changes etc.

On a personal note, I would like to start LAG at 12PM ending at 5PM again as we used to because my conditions have worsened a bit so I'm finding it difficult to make it to the venue at 11AM which we currently do.

Anyone who finds this change difficult please EMail me.

Regards, Michael aka rockape

IBrowse 2.5 to be demoed at AmiWest and Amiga32
Posted by Sir_Lucas - 18 October 2017 23:54
Sir_Lucas's Avatar  Here's some info from the official IBrowse 2.5 site:

IBrowse 2.5 is breaking cover... Some of you may be lucky enough to see it being demo'd at the upcoming AmiWest and Amiga32 shows. Obviously we realise not everyone can get to these shows, so we have added a summary of the news here. Screenshots and more details will follow at a later date.

To get the bad news out of the way first, IBrowse 2.5 isn't available yet, and is unlikely to be in 2017. However, we are working hard on finalising things for release, including making keys available for purchase again, to coincide with the 2.5 release. Originally, IBrowse 2.5 was supposed to mainly be the OS4 port of IBrowse 2.4, but obviously many years have since passed and many other changes have been made.

Summary of the new features:
OS4 Native Version Added (OS4.1 Final Edition Required)
AmiSSL v4 Support
MUI 4.0 and 5.0 Support
Alpha Channel Support (OS4)
4Gb+ File/Downloads (OS4)
OpenSearch Support
Summary of the re-written features:
TextEditField Text Editor
Disk Cache Clean Up
Summary of the improved features:
JavaScript Engine
HTML Engine
HTTP Engine
Password Manager
Cookie Support
Various GUI Elements
Internal Image Decoders
Memory Management
Bug Fixes
