To demonstrate all the incredible possibilities offered by Shared Play (which allows online solo gaming with virtually infinite number of players/watchers), AmigaOnline validates 4 new games based on this new technology (added to the Games List):

Wings Online! (incredible flying simulation like Red Baron)

Another World Online! (a wonderful adventure with so much action.Great if you are looking for thrills!)

Prince Of Persia Online! (everyone knows this platformer, but who did already play this jewel online?)

Hybris Online! (probably the first Amiga shoot'em up before Battle Squadron!)


All these games are playable exclusively on AmigaOnline network, and later on Kaillera public servers!
Perfect to rediscover a legendary Amiga game online with some friends! :)

@AmigaOnline

I'm curious. How did you manage to obtain license for all these games?

Most of the games are now classified as abandonware, and some others as freewares. Players must have their own Kickstart file to be able to play ;) Any packages on the site will be removed from the site at the request of the current copyright owners, should they wish to directly deny distribution. ;)

Legally there's no such thing as abandonware. If you're distributing these games you're performing piracy. The least you do is to harm 3rd party sales of the originals. It would also make it much harder for any legal player to enter the field and offer similar service.

You may play such tricks if you want, but it doesn't make it any more legal.

The only way to make legal would be that the players themselves provide the games they play, or that you obtain license to distribute the games.

That all being said, it's your decision really. I don't like what you're doing, but there's nothing I can do.. except voice my concerns. Amiga.org policy allows piracy these days, as well.

Piru is right regarding the laws of copyright.

However i suspect most of these companies would not care in 2010 if someone had an adf of that game or not.They have long ago abandoned the amiga scene.Now that does not make it legal(this is intelectual property we are talking about and the laws are very specific).But certainly i see low risk for legal actions against those that host these files.

You know something?If this thread or some other becomes the reason those companies go to courts to defend their rights then let it be!We should then know that these companies still appreciate the amiga scene and maybe after the court we can convince them to offer us upgrades or some sort of patches.(i know it sounds silly,it is a joke).

On the other hand if you want to be certain that there would be no problems then you could contact the original copyright holders (-that is if you can and if they do not delete your email like it is spam-)

Kind regards

Hi there!

NEW!: Thanks to the AmigaOnline Players List, you may now find Amiga players very quickly & easily! Add your favorite Amiga games to this list during your introduction. The most appreciated Amiga games will be tested online as a priority :)
Choose your opponents and decide exactly when you want to play online! If you wish to play some specific Amiga games occasionally, choose a Public Kaillera Server or create your own temporary Hamachi network!
The official AmigaOnline Hamachi network is now mainly used by motivated members to test more Amiga games online and to improve the AmigaOnline project ;)
