Here's a different layout with the ToasterScope and a few other tools visible/customized...

As for lzx, a google search for "unlzx" will produce a number of hits, but I'm not sure anyone has compiled it for Windows yet.

Yes, there's an unlzx compiled for Windows, it's available with the Beos version in the same archive:


I have tried only the Beos one and it works well.

A version of UnLZX with an x86 compile is also available on Aminet at ftp://de.aminet.net/pub/aminet/util/arc/UnLZX2.lha.

I have deliplayer for the pc skins are awful compared to the basic amiga version but  i like this more than winamp due to the fact it can play 170 difrent types of audio file. :-)

Well, DeliPlayer 2 has a better look.

Many archiving programs for Windows support LhA. I use PowerArchiver v6.11 (the last freeware version...) for which an Amiga OS style toolbar can be downloaded... :-D

Filzip is also a good program with LhA support, but some bugs need to be sorted out.

No one has mentioned the Med / Octamed family. The Amiga version just got a minor update.

Many versions of PShop would not load IFF files above 256 colors. Hope that's changed.

Some PC programs look for the .lbm extension instead of .iff.

Ulead's PhotoImpact handles 24bit IFF files very nicely.  Several members of the Kansas City Users Group like P-I for its great power & low price. (under $100US, sometimes way under)

PaintShop Pro also handles iff files by default.

Ya missed a big one: WarBlade is the PC version of the classic Amiga game Deluxe Galaga, done by the man himself, Edgar Vigdal. Trust me, it's everything you loved about Deluxe Galaga and more, even though it's still in beta release. Still, this is as polished a game as you're gonna find in the PC world and has made my own platform transition a whole lot less traumatic. Check it out!

I've been playing this for ages. It's definately the Mutts-nuts.
Perhaps one of you enterprising programmers could have a chat with Edgar, with a view of porting it to OS4?

Don\\\'t panic - bite the towel.

There doesn't appear to be an evaluation version available.  How is anyone supposed to know for sure it does what they need it to do?
