    @Harrison: testing post again...I posted an answer 3 times, but it did not get published.. weird

    Seems to work now... maybe my post was too large?? anyway...

    Retro-remakes.net is a project started by Shockwave (sysop @ dbfinteractive.com). He wanted to have a site dedicated to Amiga intro remakes after I started to release them one after another..

    So initially Shockwave put together a site and a forum where people could discuss the remakes, but from the beginning he had as sort of portal in mind. Shockwave, Rbz and Hellsangel (all old sceners) joined me and helped with new remakes.

    During this summer, Shockwave and Tetra started to work on a portal from scratch. The goal was to have a better and more efficient gallery for the remakes and also to have a BBS-like system for people to post things.

    The current version of the portal hosts more than 200 Win32 remakes of classic Amiga intros, more are released on an almost day by day basis.

    They got caught by our moderation filter for some reason. It is only active for your first few posts in order to discourage spammers, sadly it sometimes stops legitimate first posts as well. I've approved it now, sorry for the inconvenience.

    Ah! I know Shockwave and dbfinteractive.com. He is a member at the OldSkoolUK forum I visit regularly, and one of his posts was originally why I visited retro remakes.

    Thanks for the info. I will add your site to the Wiki once I get to that section of the site.

    Oh and as Teho said, your posts got caught in our moderation queue. The site should have given a message thanking you for your post and that it would appear shortly. The site checks the first few posts of any new members for anything that might be spam. If URLs, email addresses and a few other things are included in the post it will send it to the moderation queue. Plus there is a series of keywords that are commonly used by spammers that if found also send the message to the moderation queue. It can be annoying when this happens to a real member, but it does solve a lot of previous spam issues too.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    @Harrison: glad you know Shockwave, he is a really nice guy and always willing to help!

    No worried about moderation, I got the message.... but it took hours before my message got posted and since my connection dropped at some point, I thouht it did not work so I posted several times.

    Shockwave asked if we can have a link exchange with ClassicAmiga.com... would that be possible?

    I'm using Firefox (v2).

    When I'm d/l f.ex. Nuclear Destroyer BBS Online, I get the file EP-BBS.EXE, which has an extension, but when I click Operation Thunderbolt ++++++++ I get the file Razor1911-TrOperationThunP9 with no extension.



    But when I try to run EP-BBS.EXE it just opens a DOS window, then closes immediately, so nothing happens. Do I have to register to d/l content?

    @Demon Cleaner: ok I understand your problem now! yes you have to

    1) register to be able to download
    2) then you SHOULD click on DOWNLOAD not "Original Link" which links to the original Amiga executable. The very reason of your problems is that you try to run Amiga executables on your PC...the ones you have tried would only work with a real Amiga or WinUAE..

    I hope this helps..

    Sure thing. That would be great.

    I will add retro-remakes to the "Friends of Classicamiga" forum thread. And will add it to the main classicamiga.com links directory soon (that section is about to be redeveloped before I add any more to it).

    Ok, it works now. When running the remakes I get the one error message several times though, before the intro finally starts.

    @Harrison: cool! great news! I'll let Shockwave manage that with you, he's the guys behing the website

    @Demon Cleaner: good that it works now! but if you have a problem with a remake it would be good to post there (each Remake has its own thread and you can post your comments). It will avoid pollution here and also the persons behind the remakes usually check the comments on retro-remakes.net. You have more chances to get a bug fix there
