The Amiga Porting Team

Hello everyone,

just want to inform that we are looking for capable programmers to form a "software porting team", to port as much software possibile to Amiga OS.

During the past years i contacted several ex-amigans (with the help of the tireless Amitv), which have become over time great developers producing great software (mainly games).
For this reason, i collected various source code of game and software (with the authors permission) that can be ported to AmigaOS, Aros and MOS too.

One of this software was "Equilibrio", came to us thanks to afx and ACube (and DK-Games, of course). There are other software and games (even famous name).

To port all these software, of course, programmers are needed. Andrea afxgroup can't do all the job alone (altough he's a monster porter or the lord of the port :P).

I think that a team of 5 or six programmers should suffice These programmers should also sign (where required) an NDA to protect the authors of the source code.

So, what you think about this?

Something I'm working on:

It should be more or less finished. I just need to do some testing before I can upload to OS4Depot (right now I have to go to sleep because it's pretty late).

Not meaning to hijack the thread or anything but I didn't think it was worth creating a new one just for a single screenshot and this thread seemed appropriate, it being about porting stuff.

@AmigaBlitter
Can you post just a full list of the close-source titles which code you have by hands already ? We already have ported all the more or less normal open-source ones, so for now only some commercical/closedsource games can make any interest imho.

It is said in this thread that at least closed source games, wich doesn't necesarily mean comercial.

BUT I belive that asking list here publically can violate NDA. So it would require you to contact privately to AmigaBlitter

The AmigaOS 4.x Widelands port is now available on Aminet:
http://aminet.net/package/game/strat/widelands

I haven't uploaded it to OS4Depot because it doesn't allow uploading such big files (>150MB).

salass00 : Thanks for hardwork :) Settlers II was one of my all time favorites.

That why it is not nice immediately report a problem :( Mimimap immidiately freeses my Amiga. When I click minimap, I can do nothing else than reset.

My system is Sam 440EP Flex, 1gb ram, Radeon 9250 and OS4.1 with latest updates.

Every othr button works

@thread

It's a pleasure to inform Amigans that Cloanto agreed to share one of his Amiga software MasterPiece, Cloanto Personal Paint, with the Porting Team:

Thank you to Michele Battilana and Cloanto.
Andrea Afxgroup already ported the majority of code/libraries to Amiga OS4.x PPC. A little work remain to be done yet to complete the port.

P.S.

I just now now discovered that Andread Afxgroup can even write "ciao da acube"


P.P.S
I can assure you will get goose bumps using again Cloanto Personal Paint!

Ah, memories!!!
