The few new listed games on AmigaMemo in the past months clearly show: not enough time. Yet, to still include all the piled up treasures AmigaMemo will resign on the time consuming proccess of foto creation for newly added games. Instead though a lot rare collectabels will find their way very precisely described into the museum. Indeed: we are talking about three- digit number ;)
If you are dealing with PixelArt on the Internet, you will have fret
over the new versions of Firefox, Opera and Safari already. The problem puppy: zoomed screenshots or bitmaps are
rendered bicubic, which means a rather "unlovely" anti-aliasing is applied.
(read: it looks like complete and utter crap).
Unfortunately, there are no options to turn this off just yet. Pixel-enthusiasts continue using the older versions
of said browsers and should be sending hatemail to the Opera Team. AmigaMemo.com will fix the issue of aliased screenshots as well.
A small addition to the system requirements of specific games. AmigaMemo
doesn't list both OCS/ECS and AGA version if there are no differences in box design or box content.
But it's nice to know what Amiga hardware is supported. Therefore you will find a notation in the info panel of such games.
(This includes notes regarding CD32, AmigaCD or PowerPC versions.)
You want ORIGINAL games instead of emulation? Welcome! The small partnersite
of this fine AmigaMemo.com Game Museum, www.AmigaMicro.com
offering you hundreds of amiga classics in collectors condition, has been relaunched and redesigned with a shiny new look.
If you are looking for nice and rare Amiga games for fair prices a visit is well worth it.
Today a news from a well known collector of Amiga Games & dear friend of AmigaMemo, Mr.Cebulba:
Again this year the Retro-Spective Exhibition
takes place in a small town in
35 years of Computer and console gaming. Starting with arcades
of the 70, over 8-Bit and 16 Bit computers / consoles to the newest Next-Gen
machines everything is set up for play.
(date: 26./27. of July 2008)
Last nights sleet makes it hard to imagine, but easter-holidays are coming up just as the anticipation for Breakpoint'08 rises.
Be seeing you in Bingen upon Rhine... for the worlds greatest pure DemoSceneEvent (21st - 24th of March). Demo or Die! ;_)
AmigaMemo.com wishes a happy new year and celebrates the !!! 1000th Game in the museum: The super rare UK version
of ""The Great Giana Sisters"" (UK).

Yeah! and now on to the next 1000.
While heading towards that goal there will be sweet new functions in the Museum like "related games",
more exact overviews of used languages (games and their accessories / contents) as well as a separate game counter for each game page.
It is possible to directlink to the AmigaMemo detailpages with photos and screenshots now. The accordant link
can be found as a button at the bottom of each page.
And: two exciting new pieces have been added to the AmigaMemo wallpaper-section - greetings and thanks to InsertDisk2 :)
AmigaMemo is looking forward to meet old friends on the Breakpoint'07 - The worlds biggest pure demoscene event taking
place from 6th to 8th of April - or in other words: 73 hours non stop fun! :) Happy Easter in Bingen near Rhine.
Welcome to 2007! Despite the lack of recent news, working on the museum has been steadily continuing.
If you are still looking for one or another Amiga Game to add to your collection, keep an eye out for the little Gem-button.
Should one of these be around, you will be able to get the game directly from AmigaMemo's sister site AmigaMicro.com.
Just before AmigaMemo's move to a new place in Berlin, another big update took place (more than 700 games online now!)
and thanks to NOA, the user interface has been improved drasticly. (Among other things, a direct search option has been added
and the possibility to order entries by year, publisher etc.)
Finally, it's done! Now available in the Souvenir Section for download:
two lovely amiga game wallpapers - inspired by the all time favorites Chaos Engine and
Rick Dangerous. These first additions (more to come) are the resulst of a creative exchange with my old pal NOA
Cheers! Let's clink glasses full of Tequila and lemon hence AmigaMemo celebrates the
crosslinking of each game with
This is another big step forward towards maximum retro-gaming pleasure and ultimate Amiga memento...
