Have you ever wanted to create a compilation of Amiga games to run on your Amiga CD32 console? If yes, then you are not alone. The problem is that the process can be a bit tricky to master.
Fortunately, the blogger Amiga4eva at the Guru Meditation Blog has posted a guide that will help you on your way to accomplish this goal. The guide is based on the CD32 Toolkit Assistant, which is an application that simplifies the compilation process significantly.
If you are interested in lifting your Amiga CD32 gaming experience to a whole new level, please head over to his blog by clicking here.
I used to own a CD32 myself, but I sold it a couple of years ago. There are times I regret parting with the machine, but sometimes one must do what needs to be done. Perhaps I’ll buy one in the future, time will show. 🙂 One thing is for sure.. the prospect of creating such cool game compilations makes it tempting!
Any Amiga CD32 owners out there? If yes, have you made or played a games compilation on it? Perhaps you’ve upgraded your unit with a hard-drive? Hope to hear from you. 🙂
Never had one myself. But boy what a first for Amiga, eh? I remember something about Commodore not having enough ready for Christmas otherwise it might have generated a lot of extra cash. Ah the “what if”.
Yes, the “what if” when it came to the death of Commodore.. 😦 I also think it is interesting to think about what would have happened if Commodore UK had won the bid for the Amiga after Commodore’s bankruptcy. Mr. Pleasance and crew had the right spirit in my opinion. Things would probably be a lot different if they had taken over. Commodore UK actually did very well when Commodore went down.. no minuses in the UK division.
I remember reading about Commodore UK being in the race for the bid. Also Quickpak, right? Bill Buck was also working for them if I am correct. It was downhill from there on. But now it is in good hands with Hyperion. The one that really kept it alive was Eyetech with Alan Redhouse. If it was not for him (and Hyperion) we would have nothing. I will write a bit about Alan soon for my blog. 🙂
Hi there mate,
Yes, I think I remember something about Quickpak. 🙂 So many contenders, and we ended up with Escom. They did manage to get the A1200’s and A4000’s out in the shops though. 🙂
I agree with you concerning Hyperion. I think the AmigaOS is in good hands with this company. We’ve had “false prophets” in the past promising gold and green forests, but nothing materialized. With Hyperion it is different. They live up to their promises and deliver the goods. 🙂
Looking forward to read about Alan Redhouse and Eyetech on your blog. I’m very eager to learn more about that topic. 🙂 Keep up the good work!
