Amiga Future 150 and so on

Issue 150 of Amiga Future was published on May 5, 2021.
At first glance, many readers may now think that we have actually 25 years of printing the magazine under our belt.
However, that's not entirely true, as the first issue of Amiga Future magazine was number 11, yes really!

So, it will still take a while for the Amiga Future magazine to reach 25 years of age, but we are well on our way there. :)

Anyway, 150, the big 1 - 5 - 0, one hundred and fifty, is a great number to reach!
Nevertheless, we decided that we should publish our entirely usual edition for issue 150 of the Amiga Future.

So, the really big fanfare ... in the Cologne exhibition halls with hundreds of celebrities from all over the world ... what with the gilt booklet cover and the personal handover of issues to all subscribers by the Amiga Future Choir (which has still to be founded) ... ahem, we will be saving all that for our 25th year jubilee.

As we really want to let rip, at least that's the plan, and in any case we want to do much more on the internet.

As there is still a lot to get prepared for our 25th year jubilee, not least of which would be the founding of the Amiga Future Choir, so, any volunteers? Also, we want to enhance other parts of the magazine too, in order for the 25th year jubilee to run smoothly for all involved.

We want to get things going on the Amiga Future page http://150.amigafuture.de, but there will also need to be some contacts made, and naturally we also want to show in which direction the Amiga Future should move forward.

So by all means Just take a look at http://150.amigafuture.de or our news pages from when you get the chance to do so.


Amiga Future subscription campaign for more pages

An Amiga Future issue currently has 52 (+4) pages.
+4 means that we temporarily have four additional pages in each issue due to the amount of advertisements.

However, we generally want to increase the number of pages in the Amiga Future in order to have more space for editorial content.
There  is more than enough for testing. We only need the space for it and of course a few editors and translators as well.

In order to be able to finance this permanently, we simply need more subscribers. Well ... a couple of long-term advertisers for the magazine and homepage wouldn't be bad either, but this is only about the subscribers and the number of pages.

We have calculated the whole thing more precisely. In order to be able to finance four additional pages, we need 24 NEW subscribers. For eight pages we need 46 NEW subscribers.
Ideally, subscriptions with CoverCD.

That's why we started a counter with immediate effect. If we create 24 new subscriptions by the 10th June , we will have four more pages in each issue of the Amiga Future in the future. With 46 new subscriptions even eight pages more.

And if there are more than 48 new subscriptions ... Well, let's think about it if the miracle should really happen. ;)

You can find the current status of the campaign on the Amiga Future Webpage at the top.


BOH ADVANCE for 1 Year Amiga Future Subscribers for free

Amiga Future and RETREAM bring you a special gift: the dungeon crawler BOH!

Amiga Future magazine index update

The Amiga Future magazine index has been updated and now also contains the index of the latest edition of the Amiga Future.

The magazine index contains all article titles from the Amiga Future editions.
This makes it easier to find a specific article in over 20 years of Amiga Future.

In addition, the magazine index can also be used with the AFA Viewer for AmigaOS 4.

Firstly, to find out in which edition an article was published.

But you can also read the articles published on AFA-DVD directly with the AFA Viewer.
To do this, the AFA-DVD must be in the drive or installed on the hard disk.

It is also possible to partially access the files directly from the Amiga Future homepage.

Free download of the AFA Viewer: https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/dlext/index?cat=78

Amiga Future offer for beginners and collectors

Not everyone has held the Amiga Future in their hands before or it has been a long time ago.

That's why we decided to create a small test package.

Now you can order a collective bundle for a special price in the "150" area in our shop.

It contains the German or optionally English Amiga Future issues 143, 144, 145 and 146 including the cover CDs.
There are also three collectors folder stickers.

Since we do not have unlimited issues in stock, the offer is only valid while stocks last.

For everyone who just wants to order a sample copy: You can currently get it for 1 cent plus shipping costs in our online shop.


Please note our advertising partners

On the Amiga Future webpage we offer you a huge free content all about the Amiga.

Because the Amiga Future is a non-profit project, the Amiga Future homepage has to finance itself completely.
The homepage, which is currently around 30 GB in size, is funded without exception through advertising, donations and our own private funds.
Programming new extensions, databases or features really costs a lot.

At the top of the webpage there are several banners from our advertising partners. We also have advertising in the left navigation bar.

Through these web partners we finance the server and programming costs of the Amiga Future webpage.

We would be happy if you pay attention to this advertising and that will ensure that there is still enough advertising on the Amiga Future webpage to finance it adequately.


Amiga Future: New full versions online

The download area of the Amiga Future was updated today. So, you can now find the following full versions online:

Cool Croc Twins


An overview of the recent uploads and changes to the download database of Amiga Future is also available from this link:


Of course we also want to be able to offer you many more full versions online, but to be able to achieve this, for you, we need your help, so ...

We are on the lookout for the Copyright holders for Amiga games and applications.
Do you know of any such person or can you actively help us in our search?
If so, then please contact us by email.

We are looking for extra support in order to revise the full versions download area of the Amiga Future webpage.
In particular, to check whether all those full versions formats (ADF, IPF, WHDLoad, AGA, CD releases, etc.) are complete.
In addition, a short description, in 2 sentences or less, about each of their system requirements and some screenshots need to be created.
If you want to help us, then please send us an email.

The history of the Amiga Future

A few days ago issue 150 of Amiga Future was published.

Appropriately, we have now published a small article about the history of the Amiga Future.

We have also started some small campaigns for issue 150 which you can read at http://150.amigafuture.de.
A few other small campaigns will also be started.

In the history of the Amiga Future you can find out why we still don't celebrate it with a big party, even though it's issue 150.

AFA Viewer Update released

With this program it is possible under AmigaOS 4 to search for individual articles on the DVD and to display them directly.

It is also possible to access files directly to the Amiga Future webpage.

Of course, Achim Pankalla would also appreciate feedback and ideas about the program.

Amiga Future search:

Editors for the printed issues of the Amiga Future
We are particularly interested in coverage of these areas:

* Demo scene
* Applications 68k
* Games 68k, AmigaOS4, MorphOS
* Hardware (all system areas)

Would you like to work on our print magazine for the Amiga that has been around for almost 25 years?

Then just get in touch with us.

Translator for the print edition of the Amiga Future
The Amiga Future is in German and English.
As a result, articles have to be translated into each respective language.
We have sufficient translators for the Amiga Future.
However, when it comes to submitting articles, many text files need to be translated in a relatively short time. This is our famous bottleneck that regularly creates undue and unwelcome stress to all.
So, we want to permanently solve this problem.

To alleviate this problem, we are looking for more translators to bolster support for our printed issues of Amiga Future.

Amiga Future: cheats database Update

The cheats database of Amiga Future is updated weekly by David Jahn, even if at first sight that is not immediately apparent.

The cheat database on the Amiga Future webpage is probably the largest German collection for the Amiga.

This doesn't just cover cheats, as many solutions, tips and tricks, as well as Freezer addresses can be found in the collection.

Don't forget you can find more than 3400 Games Cheats and solutions in the database, and there are always more being added.

The database is currently entirely in German, but if we receive enough donations for the website, we have plans to integrate a full-blown online database, which will also be available in English.
