AF > Cloanto WB 3.1 > Installtion questions >
« on: June 08, 2021, 08:45:37 PM »
Hi there guys.

I own Amiga Forever (2005) Premium Edition
And I was wanting to create a full WB installation in emulation
to mess around with and learn.

(Esp seeing as I never had a HDD for my Amiga's when I was a youg'un).

Question:
Is the WB 3.1 .ADF supplied with Amiga Forever a "Full" WB installation
(as in the full 5-6 disk set that you got with the orignal Amiga) ?

The .ADF file is 880k (so would strongly suggest not) unless its been heavily compressed

I've asked this question to Cloanto themselves via their online
webforms, but they never got back to me.

TIA for any help or advice.

As you guessed, it is not the full WB, probably just a minimal boot disk.
I would expect AF comes with some preconfigured HDFs (hard disk images) for easy start.

AF comes with a full 6-disk set of WB 3.1.

I don’t remember the AF version history well enough, but maybe the full disk set wasn't included all the way back in the 2005 version? Can't recall when Cloanto started including it, but it’s a relatively new feature in the long lifetime of AF.

This was the description of 2005 Premium version: •Original Amiga ROM and OS files (all versions from 1.0 to 3.X)
Amiga Forever 2005 Premium Edition replaces the 6.0 CD-based "Premium" version. It includes two DVDs (dual layer) with about six hours of high quality videos (with professional DVD menus, special features and subtitles), and a Plus Edition CD-ROM with bonus content.

1. Amiga Forever (2005) Premium) does have a basic Workbench version for every Amiga model released
As in - the 1st Workbench disk, that provides you with a bare bones OS
(So enough to run some apps and games) but not the entire disk sets).


2. The crazy/annoying/ironic thing is, I actually own the original, physical
Workbench 3.1 diks.

However -
2.1. I cant find them since I moved house recently

2.2. My (real) Amiga A-1200 floppy disk drive is not working at all
(Its not reading disks - as per a previous post of mine).

Ah well, back to the drawing board.

Thanks very much for the help and advice, so far.
