Blimey I didn't know Vulcan still existed.

Way to go guys, this will hopefully bring a bit of brand awareness to more people.

I wonder if they are using a cut down version of UAE tailor correctly, and why the hell didnt they just get a special version of Amiga Forever tailored to each title....

I assume this is for the likes of Bograts et al

abalaban : Right, Amiga Inc have nothing more interesting stuff to bring out that old games on PC, thanks to a licence from a dead company. That confirms they have nothing to do with what the Amiga is now. No plans for our future.

@corto,

On the other hand, it confirms Amiga Inc is getting some different products out. And if AI had no plans for our future why would they bother with the court case?

@Jeff

Maybe to have a the liberty to label their "OS" "AmigaOS" without this disturbing possible confusion to possible (imaginary?) investors and (even more imaginary ?) customers ?

Well at least it is available product. That being said, I didn't buy them the first time round, and I'm not buying them now. However, future developments may be interesting.

JeffShepherd : They certainly try anything that can give a kind of proof of life. why would they bother with the court case? Obviously to get benefit of the huge amount of work done on OS4 by the whole team after years without any interest in OS4 (remember the vision of OS5 and OS6, run it everywhere, ...).

Nice to see JETPilot as one of the games on offer. It is the most realistic flight simulation on Amiga.
