Sorry to be a pest. I found the Install tool in C: but what it's the argument to use in the execute command line. Install.........?
Install is a legacy command that makes floppies bootable. The file to search for is Installer.
You don't need to call it manually: as long as it's in your commands path, it will be called by the system automatically (as it's the default tool in the BOH install script icon).
The problem is that your Installer tool probably can't handle the script, so you need to replace it with a previous version (version 53.9 7.10.2016 works fine).

In my case I extracted the game to RAM: where I have the "BOH" drawer. RAM: BOH/Install-AmigaOS   in my case.
RAM: is a perfect place to start the installation from.

Looks phenomenal. Wish there was a MorphOS version so could join the fun. Thanks for the great work for the platform though.

Well, the purchase gives access to the versions for all the supported systems (besides AmigaOS and AROS, also Linux, MacOS, and Windows), so it's likely that you can play the game (which is exactly the same on all platforms). If you feel like, try the demo and see for yourself ;)

I have provided A-EON with the updated package (before making the release announcement), but I don't know when it will be actually made available to the AmiStore customers. From what you say, it sounds like it hasn't happened yet :/

No, sorry: classic Amigas can't handle it.
Also (answering questions asked elsewhere, to offer a more complete picture):
 * a demake would be a different (and lesser game), and I don't want that;
 * I'm not interested in making a demake.
Anyway, the game already runs on 5 differents systems (3 of which are mainstream), so chances are that most of the people interested in the game have a machine that allows to enjoy it ;)


It wouldn't run on UAE?

I guess it would, but I haven't tried it. Just try the demo: if it works, the game works, too.

BOH Deluxe

Here's an open update about the status of the BOH Deluxe project.

The previous announcement revealed that work was being done on the physical edition of BOH ADVANCE and on a very special deluxe box that included both BOH ADVANCE and the original BOH.
The prototypes looked cool and the quotes obtained from vendors allowed to produce batches of 50 deluxe boxes at just 5.318 euros per box. That made it look possible to offer the customer a fully professional product at a very convenient price. Unfortunately, once the (crazily high Italian) shipping fees, packing materials, VAT, itch.io fee, PayPal/stripe fee, and taxes were factored in, the end user prices sky-rocketed inacceptably: about 32 euros for Italy, 38 euros for Europe, 33 for Africa, Americas, Asia, and 40 for Oceania - and that was without any profit!
Therefore, the project was cancelled.

A lot of work wasted. The bitterness was strong. To alleviate it, an idea came: producing a few special copies just for personal enjoyment and for friends.
After much research, 10 BOH ADVANCE copies were produced using alternative techniques like digital printing for the inlay/booklet, thermal printing for the CD serigraph, and mastering for the CD content. The result was literally excellent. To make the item extra cool, a double-disc transparent case was chosen so that also the original BOH could be included in the case (see picture here and the higher-resolution pictures in the Facebook BOH album).



Holding such a product in the hands suggests three things:
 * a few technical improvements;
 * it is very possible to produce a top quality product at a reasonable price even in very small batches;
 * the lovers of the game should really be given a chance to get hold of a beautiful BOH ADVANCE copy.

Consequently, alternatives to reopen the BOH Deluxe project are being considered. It might happen, it might not. If you're interested, please give your feedback here or by email (boh@retream.com): it will be much appreciated and, more importantly, could help the project succeed!

Thanks for letting me know! Hopefully, the final price will be much less than that. I'll keep you posted.


@all

somebody by email offered to pre-pay, so let me clarify that I'm not asking for money in advance.
