Dynatech 30th Anniversary Edition (new international release)
Posted by epithetic - 11 September 2022 18:20
Hi EAB community,

I've recently completed and released an unofficial remaster and English localisation of Dynatech (1992) for classic 2 MB/AGA Amiga.

Some of you might be familiar with the original German release from eleven SOFTWARE, by some of the same people from reLINE who made Oil Imperium (also released under the title Black Gold) and Fate - Gates of Dawn among other games, but if you're not, the game is a menu-driven realtime economy sim and fairly advanced for its time. An international release was planned for the following year but sadly never materialised.

Gameplay is singleplayer or cooperative/competitive two player split screen. Set in 2400, the game revolves around building a sustainable market economy alongside 20 fully simulated AI corporations, with various interlinked production chains and logistics management based on real supply and demand mechanics. That is, all circulating wares are derived from basic resources and production facilities and any transport of them is carried out by fully simulated fleets of spacecraft.

Unlike a lot of games at the time Dynatech actually punishes you for monopolising the market by brute force - since markets are dictated by supply and demand, flooding them will only lead to market crashes and potentially more widespread contagion (it's possible to game over by crashing the entire economy).

Dynatech was originally published for Amiga ECS, with a later AGA/VGA version developed for the IBM PC release. This version was rather rushed, with the overall quality being arguably worse than the original to the point of blatant copy & paste errors in some images. To make matters even worse, the AGA version suffered from a faulty graphics implementation that meant it needlessly limited the colour precision of the game to half that of the DOS version.

This unofficial 30th Anniversary Edition remaster addresses all these issues, featuring:
  • Full English localisation, including manuals
  • Bugfixed Amiga AGA release
  • Carefully remastered graphics and UI polished to a standard the VGA/AGA release should have been

If you're interested or would like more info, the release website (with downloads, quick start guide, etc.) is here: release website

(I'll see if I can put a mirror in the zone for more convenient access on real hardware)

Amistart and BoingIconBar can be swapped in the system, onentither can change backgrounds and skins, all through appositscript to be executed through specific icons.

AROS One is distributed in DVD (ISO) format or USB image from "burned to Pendrive", useful as Live system or to quickly install AROS One on PC.

To the USB image needs to rename the extension according to the program to be used, usually .img, for AROS One we recommend the use of the excellent Rufus or Etcher)

Announcing AmiDeb - An Amiga Emulator system.
Posted by vk3heg - 22 July 2022 16:09
vk3heg's Avatar  What is AmiDeb:

AmiDeb is a bare-bones Linux install with just enough to run FS-UAE.

It is *NOT* Amilator, but is based on the idea's of Amilator.

Ruining a Text based front end, FS-UAE is then launched for your Amiga
experience.


Mounting of a real CD-Rom/DVD from the host is supported. (See A3000
config.)

As AmiDeb uses FS-UAE, all features of FS-UAE on Linux are
available.

Mounting of real Amiga formatted Hard drives.


Access to the /amiga partition via the network share (Exposes the FS-UAE directory's for the ROM's/ADF's etc.


Tools on the Linux side: nano (Editor), mc (Midnight Commander [File
Manager]), linux network tools.

Basic Amiga configs are setup for the A500/2000 and the Amiga 1200. These use
the built in Kickstart of FS-UAE and will boot to "Amiga Test Kit"

The configs for the Amiga 3000/4000 have examples of using more options in line with a real Amiga. The Amiga 3000 configuration is a copy of my real Amiga 3000 setup, and is used in my personal testing of the system.

The config for the Amiga 4000 OS 4.1 is a real working setup of Amiga OS 4.1. (only the config file is supplied), this configuration uses the beta 3.2.11 version of fs-uae due to bugs related to OS 4.1 and networking.


At the end of the installation of AmiDeb you have a real Debian Linux
system, with the benefit of being able to update and customise the system.

AROS One x86 Windows Hosted
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 24 June 2022 10:52
AMIGASYSTEM's Avatar 






This is the preview of AROS One x86 v1.8 Hosted Windows, i must say it works very well, very fast and very convenient for testing updates and software.

Basically it is like using WinUAE, AROS One being placed in a Windows folder, everything can be updated or added on the fly by copying the data to its folder, data will be available immediately without the need to restart the siestem.

AROS One Hosted Windows will be identical to the native version of AROS One x86, so it will have the same version, and the same software installed, and will be distributed through a self-installing ZIP Archive.


More information about AROS x86 Windows Hosted, you can find them here:

AROS One x86 Games
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 15 June 2022 23:10
AMIGASYSTEM's Avatar 






For AMIGA game lovers, here is a new project called AROS One Games.

AROS One Games will allow in seconds and on any PC, even in VESA mode, to run WHD_MENU, an iGame-style GUI that allows AMiGA WHDLoad games to be started via JanusUAE (Amiga Emulator).

WHD_MENU was developed in the LUA language by Yannick Erb.

AROS One Games No includes ROMs and No Games.

Users will have to add their own Games and images which must be in PNG format.

Instead, AROS One you will find updated free AROS ROMs compatible with many games.

To make it easier to set up WHD_MENU, a Video Tutorial is included on AROS One where you will be able to see how to create a game menu, and set up the various paths.

The Games menu (PlayList) will need to be recreated each time a new play is added.

| Ami-Express was a BBS System that ran on the Commodore Amiga series of    |
| computers and was developed by Lightspeed Technologies in the 1990s.      |
|                                                                           |
| Version 5.5.0                                                             |
|                                                                           |
| This is a rewrite of that system written in Amiga E. It is open source    |
| and has new features and bug fixes in addition to aiming for near 100%    |
| backwards compatibility with the version 4.x releases.                    |
|                                                                           |
| I contacted Joe Hodge/LightSpeed Technologies the owner of /X product     |
| in December 2018 and he has given his full approval for me to take over   |
| this software and to continue using the Ami-Express name.                 |
|                                                                           |
| I have also updated the documentation for Ami-Express as many existing    |
| features were not properly documented. Some new features included in this |
| release are:                                                              |
|   * XMODEM and HYDRA protocol support                                     |
|   * IEMSI support for auto-login if your client supports it.              |
|   * FTP Direct Server - you can now log onto FTP directly and upload or   |
|     download without having to log on via telnet.                         | 
|   * Improved CPS info in ACP during transfers                             |
|                                                                           |
| With the inclusion of the HYDRA protocol support in this release we have  |
| achieved full feature parity with the old V4.x Releases of Ami-Express.   |
| There may still be some small differences between this version and the    |
| older releases but all features are now covered.                          |
|                                                                           |
| All source code is publicly available at:                                 |
|  https://github.com/dmcoles/AmiExpress along with the documentation.      |
|                                                                           |
| Included in this archive are several sample bbs configurations using      |
| tooltype (.info) and config file (.cfg) format. These are aimed at users  |
| wanting to set up a bbs for the first time. There is also a file called   |
| aeicon.json which can be imported using the json import tool or by        |
| selecting the file the first time you start /X with no configuration in   |
| place. This file will create a basic structure similar to the ones        |
| included in the archive.                                                  |
|                                                                           |
| This verison of /X comes with both rexxdoor 1.3 and 2.2 - If you have 10  |
| nodes or more you *MUST* use 2.2 (rename it to rexxdoor) - however this   |
| version requires that you make RX resident otherwise it won't work. If    |
| you have less than 10 nodes you can use either version.                   |
|                                                                           |
| If you are a pre-existing /X4 user, the ACP and Express files can just    |
| replace the old versions and should be as close to fully backwards        |
| compatible as possible. Plesae do contact me or raise issues in github if |
| you encounter any problems.                                               |

Xvs.library v33.47 released
Posted by Jan-VHT - 31 May 2022 17:51
Jan-VHT's Avatar  Hi all.

Georg Wittmann has released a new version of the Xvs.library.
Remember that VirusZ III, VirusExecutor, VirusChecker and VirusSlayer all uses this library to find virus and trojans. So remember to always have the newest update in your LIBS: drawer.

Release info:
Xvs.library : v33.47
Archive size: 103.300 bytes
Date : 30 may 2022


News xvs.library 33.47 (size: 67.024 bytes)
- Added 'Jackal 2021' bootvirus and its installer (as filevirus). Thanks to Crashdisk for sending the infected archive.
- Added at least some code to remove an active 'LOBO Hardcore' link-virus from memory. File recognition and repair code is still to come.

You can find the archive here:
https://vht-dk.dk/amiga/xvs/xvs.htm

Or on AmiNet.


Kind regrads
