Hi, I've been banging my head against a wall for ages with this one.

Does anyone remember an Amiga game. I only had a demo of it but it was wonderful.

It was a top down game where you controlled a guy in an arena, (I think arena may have been in the title.)
Also there were two comentators, who had phrases, "it's such a shame he's dead" "oh yes" "yes indeed"

I only had a demo of it, from either Amiga Format or CU Amiga. I think it was late in the Amiga's commercial life.

Thanks guys and gals.

(I cross posted this a little, so sorry if you see it twice)

Is anybody interested?
I have an Amiga 4000 040. It has lots of ram. The monitor is on the fritz, but still works. It would be good to rip apart for the stuff inside. If anybody wants it, please let me know :)

I am in Vancouver, BC.

New AmigaJournal Release:
I've just released a new version of AmigaJournal with a new socket handling
capability, which allows the program to run correctly under WinUAE.

In fact, I'm posting this on AmigaJournal via WinUAE. :-)

Development is back on, sort of...
I was unable to get the original HD operating, so I've had to put up with the
one year old backup copy. I've reimplemented the additions to AmigaJournal since
the backup and rereleased that version. The internal Alpha release of AmigAIM
requires all my time at the moment.

All Development On Hold
As reported in a reply in the AmigAIM Mailing List, the HD on my Amiga holding all my programs has had a major malfunction. As such, the development of all my programs for the Amiga are currently, as the very least, 1 year behind now on development - if I can even get them from my Amiga Forever backup systems. I am currently attempting to get an identical drive to try out a new main board in the drive to see if I can recover anything from the drive, as it appears the electronics have failed and not necessarily the media.

As such, until further notice, all my programming projects have been put on indeterminate hold.

AmigaJournal 0.9712 Beta... Released!
Ok, so I've released a copy of my new Amiga LJ Client. (Actually, I
released it this morning, about the time I released a fix to the
AmigAIM client)

- Note: It is only an Executable release, no Documentation - but it
works very closely to the PC version. OpenURL.library is necessary for
external links (Menu "Web" is made up of External URL links)

AmigaJournal Homepage

BTW: Last item added was the Color selection during Add/Edit friends
(Procrastinated on how to add it for months... added in a couple days)

Does anyone know when the next Amiga LJ client will be released? I love mine, but it is missing a few things.

Amigas (Again)
You know what Amiga computer where ahead of its time?

Read this story: Like I’ve shown earlier on a picture, I’ve started up my Amiga, didn’t really did it since about 1998. I did used it a couple of time, but just for about 2 hours of play on some games (Battle Squadron, Xenon etc.) then it would return in it’s box until I get another nostalgia attack. Well I’ve got another of those “nostalgia attack” this week. Well this time I want to make some music again, use to create a few track with a MOD editor (MED AND octa-MED) so I’ve also dug up the midi adaptor etc. Since theses softwares are not games they require that I boot the OS, originally called Workbench (I wonder if windows where around at this time? maybe version 1.0), the version 1.3 really old now a version 4 and 5 (not sure) is available for newer Amigas (new like 1992!!) wich feature more memory and hard-drives. This is a nice OS, windows and multi-tasking (real multi-tasking) stuff that where introduced on others computer much later. That version was introduced in 1987, but you know what??? IT WAS YEAR 2000 COMPLIANT!!! When I’ve started the computer the clock was really off, quite natural since the clock battery discharged after all this time (actually that battery recharge itself when the computer is powered long enough) so I when in the preferences and set the clock, year are only on 2 digits, so I’ve smiled and selected “03” I was sure that when I’ve would start back the day of the week would be totally off! And that file on disks would show as “Future” (AmigaOS for dates on file would say “Yesterday” or the day of the week for file less than a week old). But NO!! It displayed date properly!! Even windows 3.1 could not really get year 2000 compliant unless numerous service patch and upgrade and they where introduced much later and on newer computer that would have more chance to still be in use in 2000.

Still Working...
I'm wondering if
1) Anyone actually is reading this (No one else has joined the community, so maybe not)
2) If anyone cares that I'm still working on AmigaJournal...

Anyway, for those who may actually slip through here and wonder... I'm currently working on proxy support and have recently added the capability of using servers other than LiveJournal. Currently I'm working on adding a semi-automatic link creator for the edit window.

Still working on AmigaJournal...
Ok, so I "planned" on releasing my AmigaJournal program already... But, it will be better released later, as I did a complete rewrite of the Server Request handling code last night and added the CheckFriends capability just a little while ago.

Current Mood: tired

AmigaJournal hopefully to be released soon...
I'm currently in the last steps of bug smashing in AmigaJournal, a client for LiveJournal that has most of the functionality of the Win32 PC Client

Hopefully, I'll find time to release it sometime in the next week.
