+++ PRODUCT SOLD OUT, PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AT THE SUCCESSOR PRODUCT AMIGA FOREVER 2013 +++

Amiga Forever 2008 is the most significant upgrade ever released in the Amiga Forever series. It sets new references in usability while more than tripling the featured content and providing easy access to a universe of free downloads. Amiga Forever 2008 was rewritten from scratch to redefine itself and the perception of emulation and retro gaming in general.

The first impression when seeing the new skinned player on Windows can be stunning, compared to previous software. At the same time, the new player feels as familiar as "this is how it should always have been". Behind the scenes, though, it took a monumental effort just to provide a Yes answer to questions like "Can't you just double-click an ADF to play it?"

New features in Amiga Forever 2008 include:
  • Revolutionary new and intuitive player interface for Windows, for easy selection and playback of games and other content
  • The new Amiga Forever player makes it possible to double-click or drag-and-drop downloaded disk images (e.g. ADF, ADZ, IPF, etc.) to play them, using heuristic content analysis to preset a suitable Amiga hardware configuration
  • The player has built-in support for dual screens and multiple emulation sessions
  • Rather than closing an emulation session, it is possible to save its state, for example to resume a game at a later time
  • Full undo of ADF, ADZ, HDF and HDZ disk writes (disk changes may be committed or discarded when exiting the emulation)
  • Full support for Windows Vista x86 and x64 (probably the first and only Windows software with custom-shaped glass-enabled skin)
  • Content more than tripled (disk images are now compressed, and also used directly by the installer)
  • New "Amiga Forever Game Pack I" (more than 100 games)
  • More than 100 beautiful demoscene productions
  • New Gallery items: original Tripos article, "top secret" Amiga-Atari documents, and much more
  • New system HDFs: complete Amiga OS 1.3, 2.1 and 3.1 installations with only a minimum of add-ons (e.g. Y2K fixes, RTG update for 3.1), but otherwise identical to the original (including file attributes as intended by Commodore, which were lost in later distributions)
  • New ADFs (1.3 Extras, complete 3.1 install set, etc.)
  • New ROMs (Amiga 1000, A590 and A4091 boot ROMs, system-specific ROMs required for added compatibility, etc.)
  • Preinstalled WHDLoad "kickemu" support
  • New KX Light, bootable from CD and with HD installation option and extended hardware support
