Voyager from VaporWare released under GPL
Posted by Locutus - Yesterday 08:15
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 22:57
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 http://lincsamiga.org.uk/wordpress/ 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 22:54
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

A/NES Pro v1.19 released
Posted by oRBIT - 27 August 2017 21:15
For the first time in about 2 years, here's a new version of "A/NES Pro" for high-end classic 68k Amigas!
Previous version had a fatal bug (looks like a compiler issue with Asm-Pro and the problem vanished with Asm-One) and I've fixed a few other issues aswell.

Harem Challenge [Cubo CD32] - Playable on Amiga CD32 and emulators for first time!!!
Posted by DamienD - 26 August 2017 20:17
DamienD's Avatar  Heya guys,

Some excellent news... finally the 2nd "Cubo CD32" game has been patched and is now playable on an "Amiga CD32" console or via emulation

Many thanks for the details on what to patch must go to the man ross

So, following the vital information in this post, I've now undertaken the following:

  • Downloaded the "haremchl.chd" file for MAME.
  • Used "chdman.exe" to extract ".BIN & .CUE" files.
  • Used "HxD.exe" to find / patch the specified area.






Buttons are as follows:

  • RED: Leave starting postion.
  • BLUE: Retreat back to starting position.
  • GREEN: Shoot bullets.
  • FORWARD: Insert coins.
For now, grab the game from here but will probably also upload onto the EAB File Server for preservation

Fully KS 1.3 compatible large drive/partition FastFileSystem v44.5
Posted by Toni Wilen - 26 August 2017 12:55
Here is another KS 1.3 filesystem compatibility update, this time for v44.5 FastFileSystem.
This may have very limited use but PFS3AIO-like all-os-compatible FastFileSystem with
big drive/partition support didn't exist previously.

TEST VERSION. Do not upload to Aminet or similar sites!

Patch applies to http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/ffstd64 (base filesystem comes with WB 3.1)

v44.5 is TD64 and DirectSCSI compatible and supports large partitions. Most 1.3 compatible HD SCSI
controllers are DirectSCSI compatible without size limits even if normal access mode has 1G or 4G limit.

WARNING: Compared to PFS3AIO, this is only a simple patch, it does not introduce any extra functionality,
like validating if complete partition is accessible and because FFS root block is located at the middle
of partition, partition will mount even if data after root block is inaccessible. (PFS3 "superblock"
is located in last block of partition)

WARNING: Some old HD SCSI controllers may not support HD_SCSICMD (DirectSCSI) and in worst case
they may use it for other purposes, possible destructive. Test it by running HDToolBox (don't use
drive that has important data!), if HDToolBox detects the drive: HD_SCSICMD is supported and working.
If not: Don't use it with >4G drives! Any HD_SCSICMD query program is also fine for testing this.
Most old IDE controllers probably have overflow bugs in HD_SCSICMD emulation if drive is too large.

NOTE: Read http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=61666 first! This only changes KS 1.3 compatibility,
(previously it would just hang or crash) no drive size/partition size/size of universe limits change.
Free space shown will be very weird if >2G partition etc, the usual ..

KS 1.3 compatibility patches are applied on the fly, if system is >=v36, original unpatched code runs.

Patches applied:

- ACTION_STARTUP dp_Arg1 and dp_Arg3 are not valid under KS 1.3. (Same patch as in PFS3AIO)
- OpenLibrary("utility.library",36) disabled.
- utility.library UMult32 and UDivMod32 calls replaced.
- Requesters (read/write error, you must insert, validation error) replaced with calls to BCPL makesysreq().

r2:

- WB 1.3 "ghost" icon fix. ACTION_INFO/ACTION_DISK_INFO must always return DOS\0, even if dos type is DOS\1 or higher.

r3:

- Force Direct SCSI if device driver is scsi.device, all scsi.device variants support it and at least
CDTV scsi.device (and probably older A590/A2091 ROMs too) don't return error when calling unsupported
functions, causing TD64 misdetection.
- Fixed bug in SCSI direct code, it never set io_Length in SCSI direct mode. TD64 check sets it to larger than
required value (block size) but nothing sets it if TD64 is disabled.
- Always disable TD64 capability test under KS 1.3.

I also originally made KS 1.3 compatibility patch for v45.13 (v45.16) but it was totally useless because
v45 requires NSD if partition is outside of first 4G which no old controller boot rom supports.

Quick instructions:

Download http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/ffstd64
Download patch file http://www.winuae.net/files/b/fastfi..._5_ks13_r3.zip
Unpack both to same directory
Find WB 3.1 disk or image (or other source for v40.1 L:FastFileSystem)
CD to directory where you unpacked both archives
Copy v40.1 FastFileSystem to current directory
Copy attached patch file (fastfilesystem_44_5_ks13.pch) to current directory
Create v44.5: spatch -ofastfilesystem_44_5 -pfastfilesystem_40_1.patch fastfilesystem
Create KS1.3 compatible: spatch -ofastfilesystem_44_5_ks13 -pfastfilesystem_44_5_ks13.pch fastfilesystem_44_5
Copy/Rename fastfilesystem_44_6_ks13 to L: (or somewhere else)
Use HDToolBox to install it.

NOTE: This thread is not for generic filesystem/hdtoolbox instructions.

FINAL WARNING: You should know what are you doing! Take backups. There is no guarantees. There is no support.

Tested with my usual SupraDrive 500XP and ACA500plus setups under KS 1.3 with 8G CF containing single 8G FFS partition.
also 10G partition was tested under emulation. (Filled it with 1.5G files, then checked SHA-1 hashes.)
