Jump'n Run: Full version of Putty Squad as free download
Almost 20 years ago, System 3's Putty Squad should have been released: a demo version was released on several disks of magazines and diverse British magazine did rate the game - and all of them with a high number of points.

But the final release did not follow and during the next years the game became some kind of a hidden secret for hunters of unreleased games.

With the help of the Amiga veteran "Galahad", now the Amiga version of Putty Squad was finished so far. As a Christmas gift to all Amiga fans, System 3 has made available the game on its website for free download.

Putty Squad is provided as two ADF-files and requires an AGA-Amiga. There are no plans for installing it on harddrive. Your web browser has to accept cookies otherwise the download will not work.

Ian 'Codetapper' Lightbody has interviewed Galahad. They talked about the communication with System 3 and the technical problems with finishing the game. (cg) (Translation: dr)

AROS: AEROS beta version 6 for Raspberry Pi
The sixth beta version of Pascal Papara's Debian-Linux-hosted AROS-distribution AEROS for the Raspberry Pi (video) has been released for registered and unregistered users - as usual the version for unregistered users does not include the lx-command with which it is possible to launch Linux-programms out of AROS.

  • Made alias "omxplayer" under AROS; if you put videos into the video-folder you can run them from any place with "omxplayer nameofvideo" from AROS shell; it supports full HD-Playback through GPU (some additional codecs can be purchased from Pi-store)
  • Linux filesystem is now accessible thanks to deadwood's fix
  • Assigns Home: and Media: added to Wanderer
  • Updated AROS and Linux system files
  • Added some icons for Synaptic and file manager (looks like IndieGO!-Marketplace icon but it just launches Synaptic)
  • Added Pi-store icon
  • Added UAE4all (untested, experimental)
  • If you doubleclick a video file in Linux file manager, it will be played through omxplayer
