Cloanto Releases Amiga Forever and C64 Forever 2012

August 26, 2011 - Cloanto released today Amiga Forever 2012 and C64 Forever 2012, the latest versions of the award-winning Commodore-Amiga preservation, emulation and support suites for Windows.

By adding powerful content authoring and integration functionality, Amiga Forever and C64 Forever 2012 close the circle between gaming, productivity and preservation of digital culture while adding new features and providing easier access to a universe of free and legal downloads.

The new versions build on a powerful synergy of original components:

  • RP9 file format, which is a compressed cross-platform archive containing media images, configuration, description and ancillary data, developed by Cloanto
  • RetroPlatform Player and API to interface with different emulation plugins
  • Cloanto's unique portfolio of ROM and OS licenses

The new packages can emulate the full range of 8-bit (C64, VIC 20, PET/CBM, etc.) and 16/32-bit systems (Amiga, CDTV, etc.) using an intuitive media player-like interface. The advanced RP9 authoring functionality sets new references in preserving and making accessible digital culture from the 1980s and 1990s. Content created or edited with the Windows software can be played back on other systems, including mobile devices (in part under development).

The 2012 versions not only include hundreds of software enhancements, but also add content of historical interest, like new interviews with Amiga legends RJ Mical and Dave Haynie, also with HD-quality video footage.

 Amiga Forever 2012 is available now in three editions:

  • Value Edition (downloadable installer for Windows systems)
  • Plus Edition (downloadable ISO image with additional Windows and platform-neutral content)
  • Premium Edition (physical Plus Edition content plus additional videos on 3 DVDs)

C64 Forever 2012 is available now in three editions:

Amiga Forever and C64 Forever passed official Windows 7 logo tests on both x86 and x64 systems. Prices for both Amiga Forever and C64 Forever start from $9.95 (special upgrade offers).
