Port Amiga Games

Added bypredcon's avatarpredcon

Anyone can find .adf (Amiga Disk File) images, but usually they're poorly cracked or copied versions, resulting in unpreventable Software Errors (Guru Meditations). I'll wager there's more like me who'd pay a premium for first-hand scans of original Amiga game disks for our WinUAE (or emulator of choice).

The only thing that could make this idea better would be for GoG to make a deal with another company and start producing Amigas again along with reproductions of older games, and then they set up a delivery service so they could send you an Amiga and whatever games you want.

Yeah, it will never happen, but wouldn't it be awesome?!

http://thecompany.pl/ - these guys show us how user-friendly the end-product can be. They should partner up with GOG!

Absolutely. Loved the Amiga! Christmas '91 only became Christmas once Robocod was fired up :)

Great memories of the greatest computer of the 16-bit era.

@Happschaetzu: Actually, you could pretty easily get all 4096 colors on screen at the same time -- HAM mode allowed it through modifying R, G, or B from the previous pixel (great for images, not as great for games), and horizontal retrace handlers let you change some or all of the selected palette colors during each retrace. Many games used the latter mode to great effect. And remember that Amiga was out in 1985, 2 years before VGA was introduced. Amiga games were pretty much the best looking ones you could get during the mid-late 80s by an order of magnitude, and it's audio support was also unparalleled for the time.

I'd pay money for Amiga games, definitely, partly for nostalgia, partly because there's still a treasure trove of games out there you can only get from car boot sales at the moment.

Well, Amiga Forever has the licenses to distribute the necessary files. Whether they would have the license to distribute it GOG style... I don't know. But still very much in favor of this if it could be done.

@Narf_the_Mouse For games the AMIGA could use only 32 colors out of 4048 at the same time. That was better then EGA, but worse than VGA. VGA offered 256 colors out of 16 Millioen at the same time. And later DOS games used that.

This would require a kickstart ROM or original AMIGA to get the ROM legally. Without a kickstart ROM, which is protected by copyright, WinUAE is rather useless for most AMIGA games.

Why you should support this: While Microsoft was struggling with 16 colours, the Amiga had 4096.

This would be a dream come true for! I have no idea how feasible that is, but integrating an Amiga emulator into the games the way GOG does with those using dosbox would be amazing.

I would also like to see AMIGA games on GOG.com. It would be nice to be able to buy games in *.adf format for "normal" AMIGA's and disc images for AMIGA CDTV and CD32. You cannot buy them anywhere these days.

Well, that wouldn't be porting then, it would remain emulation. But I completely support the idea of GOG adding Amiga games to their catalogue, especially since there's already several games on GOG that used to be much better on Amiga (i.e. Populous and Cannon Fodder).
