DM2. Much better than Dopus 4, IMHO.

I was always put off getting Drawstudio because the demo was very flakey and continued to boot up my A600 just to run ProDraw.  However, I bought a copy of DrawStudio a copule of weeks back and it is indeed excellent.  Works fine on the A1200 and under UAE.

Anyway, back to the thread...

All the Gold Disk stuff was great and I still use ProPage and ProCalc as well as ProDraw (v flakey on AGA).

Vista Pro was always good for a play as well; must see if it works under emu so can stick in on my A1.

Deluxe Paint. Any version... I was only 11 and that was great! :-) If you want to paint small things and control every pixel is way faster than using 24 bit programs like photoshop...

My favorites....
Miami Deluxe
Disk Master 2

I'd use DOpus Magellan 2, but I can't get it to run without crashing my entire machine.

Seriously though....

I loved the action replay cart too......signed a petition to get it done for A1200l.

Actual proggy would have to be Dopus, that prog RULES! :-)

Anyone remember FixDisk? I used to get annoyed by utilities that would "fix" bad sectors on a disk by blanking them or just "fix" the CRC leaving the data bad. Fixdisk  allowed you to (amongst other things) find bad tracks and then repeatedly read them, displaying the data received in a hex window. By observation you could see when the dodgy track had been read ok, format just that track and write the (good) data back. Disk actually FIXED! Cool.

Oh! And CLImate, in the days when Open File... in an app used to give you just a line-drawn empty text box! :-)

Just one? impossible.

I liked FinalWriter, YAM, MagicMenu (although I guess MM is current).

There was a delightful hack that drew shadows under windows in WB 1.x I think, maybe 2.x too but I don't believe it worked so well.

LightWave....nothing else comes close.

Over the years I've spent lots of money on Imagine, C4D and the rest,
but they're toys in comparison.  LightWave is just awesome, even on
the Amiga. And of course, the Amiga gave birth to LightWave.

I got LightWave yonks ago and I cannot put it down. It has hooked me,
pulled me in and swallowed me up!

I spend all my time with LightWave. I've written a book on
LightWave and my website is dedicated to LightWave.

So for me, it's just gotta be LightWave.

Cheers,

Hmm, if I were to list all of my favourite applications I'd probably still be typing this in two days time (ok so I'm exaggerating just a little bit) :-). So I'll just list the ones that I've used the most.

First off DOpus 4.12 because it makes file management simple and doesn't need lots of configuration before you can get the best out of it (unlike it's big brother).

CygnusED. It might not be feature packed but its fast, small and has an ARexx port and you can actually run it from floppies if needed (I'd like to see someone try that with GoldED).

My favourite application would have to be OctaMED Soundstudio because it's the only program I've ever used that has not crashed more than twice on my machine.
