wawrzon, you talk like AeonKit owes you something, like we are entitled to any software they develop/upgrade/aquire and on every "amiga" platform....?


is that an argument you intend to be using towards anyone who posts anything else than dancing bananas?

A-EON gets a lot of feedback from parties that are never likely to buy any products from A-EON. However, it is more sensible to listen to the genuinely prospective customers and existing customers. If you were missed out, then it's never too late to send an email to A-EON with your ideas.


if all what you target is your existing customer base then its probably the right strategy. what concerns interesting ideas i dont need to write any emails, its all in the open, like the current independent developments around fpga accelerators.

If you consider some of the software tech that A-EON has recently commissioned, such as the RadeonHD v2 drivers,  that was ground breaking for the Amiga and propels the Amiga to the forefront on compatibility with the latest RadeonHD R5 R7 and R9 graphics cards. I consider that very innovative for this computing platform :)


i dont know. im not getting so hot about 2d rtg support even if it applies to latest cards, which whole justification would usually be 3d gaming if only the base platform was fast enough and software base openly available. for the time being i can live stuck with voodoo3 in mediator.

No.

I have no issue with people finding the PPC path inefficient and too expensive to justify for hobby habits, myself included, but I dont see why I should be sour about people/companies disagreeing with me.

If AeonKit wants to invest in xyz anicent program and even upgrading it, then why should I be negative about it? Atm Im completely indifferent to it, until they release a upgraded version. Until that happens I have Octamed Studiosound on my old A1200 working just fine.

The word that keeps coming back to me when reading posts on this forum is "entitlement".

im not sour. i just think the strategy is as beneficent for the amiga scene as it was for os4 and have commented on that.

OctaMED player has been ported to OS4.x

I too am waiting for main program port. People have said they would do it, then vanish.
So something has been done and I won't stop going on about getting it ported.

Given all the water that's flowed under the bridge thus far, I doubt a fully functional OctaMED for OS4 will ever see the light of day.
Even if it does, most of us bedroom music producers gave up waiting on it years ago and moved to something else.

Don't get me wrong, I'd probably still buy a copy but more out of curiosity and nostalgia than any real likelihood of using it to produce music. I've been using other tools on other platforms for that for well over a decade now.

I know that it is bought to sell the PPC hardware but from a economic view would it not make more sense to stay 68k and update/bugfix/improve what is there? For classic users it would be more interesting and it would still run on PPC hardware, at least in emulation, in best case even on petunia. If you want PPC native versions you have to invest lots of time (and thus money) to get it reworked and to replace asm parts, lots of work and no real new features and thus no reason to buy it.

of course not

there are very few experienced developers left and you certainly need a lot of work to get it compile and run natively on PPC. And then there are only few users willing to buy it. In my view it would be better to use what is there and not try to get it running native on PPC. It is propably easier to write it from scratch then trying to rework the old sources (propably banging hardware, using asm routines and so on)

If you don't mind my asking and are willing to reply, what is the status of the A-eon purchase in January 2015 of ImageFX?

AROS has ported lots of software from 68k to portable C and build for x86 etc.

If you want software to survive, sources must be provided to the willing without them needing to jump through tight hoops and rings of fire.

If Im honest, ImageFX has never interested me personally. So I could not comment on its status.

Octamed SS, as a generally system friendly app already runs just fine on OS4 on the BlizzPPC. I also ran it fine on my A1XE (before it died), by using "The Marstrix" AHI redirection tool for faking a Maestro sound card which is one of the built in output options for mix mode.

Worth noting that on a graphics card, it works best on it's own 8-bit screen rather than just running it on a copy of the workbench screen mode.

Missed this at the time Karlos, apologies.

The last time I tried OSS on OS4/A1XE the MIDI was broken. I haven't tried it for over a year but I imagine this is still the case.
If someone could fix that, it would make it a much more attractive bit of software for OS4.
