AmigaOS 4/AROS: Anniversary special edition of arcade game "Boh"
On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the arcade game Boh, the author has released a "special edition" on CD which provides some improvements:
  • includes all the updates released previously
  • reworks the video modes handling (full screen by default; window on 16-bit screens allowed; more robust; etc.)
  • adds the CRT and LCD pixel modes
  • adds the 5x zoom
  • adds 5 new missions, bringing the total to a massive 60
  • assigns the pause to the [ESCAPE] key (instead of a specific key), which thus no longer causes the immediate abort of the current mission
  • reworks the menu controls (more keys; do not depend anymore on the in-game controls configuration)
  • adds the emergency configuration reset (assigned to the key [F12])
  • adds the screenshot functionality (assigned to the key [PRINT])
  • makes quitting by means of [ALT]+[F4] available on all platforms
  • sets the default URL for records submission to (it is no longer necessary to specify such URL manually in the configuration file)
  • replaces the copy code with an email address for the records submission
  • updates the manuals
  • applies many other optimizations/changes/fixes, for more performance, polish and robustness
The CD includes versions for AmigaOS 4, AROS, Linux, MacOS and Windows and provides an installation programm which installs the latest version or can update an existing version as well as the complete soundtrack and high-resolution images of the DVD-covers.

A demo version of the "special edition" for diverse systems is available on the website of the game. (cg) (Translation: dr)
