https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/dlext/latest

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.

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 is on the lookout for major re-inforcements in our 25th year

As our printed issues of the Amiga Future magazine has been in regular publication for almost 25 years, it is now time to massively increase our team that edits the magazine and webpage. The intention is to spread the workload of our entire team and to divide it over more shoulders, so the workload for each editorial team member involved gets reduced, though as a result of this staff increase, we also want to increase its overall quality.

So, that the next 25 years will be somewhat easier for everyone involved.

The list of personnel we are looking for is quite long:

* Editors for the print edition of the Amiga Future
* Translators for the print edition of the Amiga Future
* News editors for the Amiga Future homepage
* Full commitment on the Amiga Future webpage
* Advertising management for the magazine and website
* Maybe offer some suggestions for how else you can assist us?

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.

The following requirements are these, but should go without saying:

* You should own an Amiga, which is logical!
* You should not only own your Amiga, but use it. As in, you need to know the way your Amiga generally works.
* Your spelling doesn't need to be perfect but reasonably OK.
* It is of course ideal if you have already written reports.
* Of course you should also have enough spare time to invest with us and interest in doing so.


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.

Our requirements are that you should possess good grammar and spelling in your own language (German or English) and also understand the German or English language as well.

That is so you are able to understand what you are translating. However, basic knowledge of the Amiga is necessary in all cases.


News editors for the Amiga Future homepage
***********************************************
The news area of the Amiga Future webpage has grown a lot over the last few years, but that's not enough for our needs.
In the long term it is our goal that all Amiga news can be found on the Amiga Future webpage, and of course we also want more in-depth news.

Some users already take care of the news on the webpage, but we still need to achieve our long-term goals as well, so major reinforcement in the news team is still required.


Full versions for the Amiga Future homepage
*******************************************
We continue to publish full commercial versions on the Amiga Future webpage, as we have done for many years.
The aim is to offer users improved free and legal download options.

The effort to enable this is now somewhat overwhelming:

As the rights holder for such software must be found. That alone is often very difficult.
After that you need to have their permission to publish such software.
In many cases, the software itself has to be searched around for.
At the end of the day, a package has to be put together, which can then be published on our webpage.

So, we are looking for users who can support us as independently as possible.


Advertising in the magazine and on the website
**********************************************
In our Amiga Future printed magazine we are currently quite well supported with advertisements.
Nevertheless, we are constantly looking for other long term advertisers for the magazine.

It looks a little different on the Amiga Future webpage. We also have advertisements there, but not as much as we'd like.
We are quite openly looking for long-term advertisers there.

Advertising is a very important benefit to us,  as advertising greatly supports our costs.

Without advertising, a magazine like our Amiga Future, as well as our webpage, would not be possible in the long term.


How else can you help us?
*****************************
- We look forward to each and every subscription and recommendation that is made for our magazine, both of which are greatly appreciated.
We have a constantly increasing circulation, which is obviously good news for our magazine.
However, for our goals to be achieved, a boosted content edition is required.

- Provided that we can supplement our editorial team for the magazine, one of our next goals is to permanently increase the number of pages in the Amiga Future. However, this will require additional subscribers as well as sufficient long-term advertising customers. A sponsor wouldn't be a bad thing either, but that is probably unrealistic.

- We also want to improve distributing messages about the Amiga Future magazine.
Do you have a news page, a blog or something similar and would like to publish news reports about the Amiga Future? Then contact us. We are happy to add you into our News distribution list.

- We are continually looking for places where we could add meaningful (!) advertising for the Amiga Future.

- From the start of this year we have been getting to grips with using our new software to manage subscribers, bills and other data.
Now, at last, it is possible to send Amiga Future subscription invoices via email. If someone wants to accept a subscription offer sent that way then please contact us directly, as it saves us a lot of work when placing the invoices.

- With our new software, it is now easier to manage subscription bills by direct debit, which also saves us more time.
We hope that as many readers as possible will use the direct debit method of payment. You can find a PDF form for this purpose at the URL: http://www.apc-tcp.de/lastschrift.pdf
Currently, direct debits are only possible within Germany.

The Amiga Future magazine - Issue 150 preview is now available to view online

This is the full colour preview and excerpts of the Amiga Future issue 150 (May/June 2021) can now be viewed online on the Amiga Future website.

Some of the interesting articles in this issue are:

Interview Alinea
Review ApolloOS
Workshop mySync

Of course there's so MUCH more actually in the magazine.

Needless to say you often get other versions of software, often what was commercially available, as well as some of the latest try-outs or freely released software applications and games for, hopefully, all of the Amiga type Operating systems, so that's Amiga 'Classic', OS4, MorphOS, and AROS, including some PD software for these systems, all on the Readers' cover CD.

A detailed description of content and excerpts of this current issue can be found at: http://www.amigafuture.de/kb.php?mode=cat&cat=13

The Amiga Future magazine is available as an English and German printed magazine - every issue is available in FULL COLOUR - directly available from the magazine editorial office and also from various other Amiga dealers.

Pre-order the new Amiga Future issue now

The preview of the new Amiga Future has recently been online.

Now would be the ideal time to pre-order the new edition. Of course, only if you haven't already done so.

This is the fastest way to have the new Amiga Future magazine at home. The pre-orders are sent at the same time as the subscriptions.

Btw: Perhaps you'd prefer an annual subscription?

It couldn't be safer if you don't want to miss any issue of the magazine.
We only increased the print run of the Amiga Future some time ago, but at some point even this amount will no longer be sufficient.
Unfortunately, some users felt this shortly before the last increase in circulation. Of course that wasn't planned by us, but unfortunately there was no other way.

You can find the contents of the new Amiga Future and of course all of the already published booklets at the address ...

https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/kb/index?c=13

Single issues can be ordered here: https://www.amigashop.org/index.php?cPath=23
And for the sake of clarity, you can order the subscriptions here: https://www.amigashop.org/index.php?cPath=41

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.
