Amiga Forever and C64 Forever 9 "R2" Update

November 26, 2021 - Cloanto released today the "R2" ( update for Amiga Forever 9 and C64 Forever 9.

The "R2" build is the result of eight months of work since the previous major release, and takes into account user feedback, new operating system versions and numerous features from our own wish list.

This is a free update for existing version 9 users, who can get the new version through the Help/About dialog in Amiga Forever and C64 Forever, which includes a detailed Changelog. The updated full installation package and ISO image can also be accessed via the original confirmation email or from the Help/My Downloads and Keys menu item, and are set to remain available for 10 years after an order.

New and enhanced features include:

  • Improved Setup Wizard
  • Arcade mode, tile view and column view enhancements
  • Improved handling of game controller, mouse and keyboard devices
  • New non-blocking title editor (allows for multiple instances, e.g. to compare the configurations of different titles) and File Explorer preview and editing capabilities
  • Improved Amiga RDB disk support
  • New LhA archive extraction and WHDLoad import and playback features
  • 8-bit systems: improved virtual mouse (including text selection, copy and paste), screen capture and clipboard text handling
  • New input, pixel ratio and scaling factor options
  • Support for some of the latest system features introduced in Windows 11 and in Windows 10 versions 21H1 and 21H2
  • Continuing best-in-class support for content curation, high-DPI and mixed display environments, real and virtual game controller and keyboard input
  • Fixes to known bugs (see the Changelog for additional details)

Amiga Explorer 9.2 is also being released at the same time, with new features including pervasive CRC-32 checks, large disk imaging improvements, drag and drop enhancements, and bug fixes. This is a free upgrade for all Amiga Explorer and Amiga Forever Plus Edition and Premium Edition customers.

As always, we are grateful to the many friends who supported this project and our Amiga passion, vision and hope.
