CD32 Toolkit Assistant 2.0.1.0: Out Now!

Hi there,

It’s only been a few days since I last wrote a piece on how to create a games compilation for the Amiga CD32. In that post I linked to a guide on the Guru Meditation blog by Amiga4eva.

Today I’ve got some good news for you concerning this, as Amiga4eva has posted an update to the CD32 Toolkit Assistant! According to his blog, version 2.0.1.0 was released today. I’m sure many of the CD32 fans out there will appreciate this. πŸ™‚

Let’s have a look at what kind of improvements this update contains:

BUG FIXES:

  • Attempting to remove mods or game files from the compilation without having selected anything from the checked list boxes will no longer mistakenly inform the user they’ve removed an item.
  • Changing the automatically chosen game name will no longer cause the Tool Kit to fail copying the .slave file with errorΒ β€œNot a valid slave file! at CD32ToolKitAssistant.frmCD32Main.CopySlaveFile()”

FEATURES:Β 

  • The ability to maintain a list of .mod format songs to be included in the compilation.
  • A health check you can run which ensures you have key files required for using the CD32 Compilation via WinUAE
  • Additional debug information captured if an exception occurs
  • The ability to create a build file of your ISO compilation, featuring version information and a list of games and songs in the compilation

Looks excellent. πŸ™‚ If you’re interested in taking a closer look, please head over to Guru Meditation Blog by clicking here.

Needless to say, it’s tempting to get hold of a CD32 again. I’ve seen a few available for purchase on AmiBay and e-Bay, but I haven’t decided on whether or not to go for one yet. Already have one Amiga 1200 and one Amiga 500 that covers my needs, but it would definitely be fun with a CD32 as well. πŸ˜‰

Interested in seeing how such a compilation looks like?

I found a video by Maxsoft9 on YouTube that showcases a cool CD32 compilation. The music in the background of the video is from the compilation itself. Enjoy the show! Impressive how many games they can cram onto one CD, isn’t it?

Have a good weekend! πŸ™‚

  1. I think I have to place this a bit low on my wanted list. First up is OS4.2, pcmcia lan/wlan card for my A1200, MorphOS hardware, C64. πŸ™‚

    • Hi there Sean,

      Thanks for your comment. πŸ™‚

      I see that you also are tempted to grab a CD32. Seems like Amiga4eva has inspired us both! πŸ˜‰ If you decide to go for one, then I’m sure you’ll be happy with it. Lot’s of cool games to collect and compilations to be made.
