Amiga Forever is the award-winning Amiga preservation, emulation
and support package brought to you by Cloanto, Amiga developers
since 1986. This Premium Edition blends high-quality software and
original content with the ultimate set of videos to chronicle and
let you experience firsthand the history, culture, challenges and
passion behind the Amiga.
- New Build Image feature (Tools menu of Plus Edition), to create personalized ISO images
(burn to CD or DVD) and portable environments (e.g. to run from USB storage). This is
similar to the "old" Amiga Forever media, except that the content can now be
updated and customized.
- Support for third-party "RP-Image" templates, to generate bootable content,
etc. Documentation is available.
- New Restore System Files feature (Tools menu) to reset shared components (Amiga ROM
and OS files, system RP9s, etc.)

faster Open, Edit and Convert to RP9 commands accessible directly from File Explorer,
to offer a better content experience outside the player.
- Set personal rating for any title (not just cataloged ones)
- New visual Screen Clip Editor, for easy adjustment of Amiga screen mode settings.
- WinFellow is now available as an additional RetroPlatform-enabled emulation plugin.
You can click any compatible title and select "Play with/WinFellow", or select
plugin priority and additional options in the Amiga Forever Emulation settings.
- Brand new Personal Paint 7.2 preinstalled in Workbench 3.X environment.
- Updated AROS and other content.

hardware differences, Amiga floppy drives and some other
peripherals cannot be connected to non-Amiga hardware, even if
running an emulation.
