6/12/14: Files Readded - I have readded all archive releases.
Everything should be working again, apart from GamePacks.
27/10/12: Files Removed - Due to some copyright issues regarding some files and packages,
and these files/packages not having distribution permissions, all AIAB distributions have been removed temporarily.
They will be back up once the packages/files in question have been removed.
07/10/12: Site Fixed - Alllrrrrighty then, we have it folks sites all fixed up. We can now proceed
to develop new page content/updates and new AIAB updates.
I'm hoping for a christmas release of AIAB 10.7, fingers crossed.
04/10/12: Site Fixes - Site links are all fixed up. I've moved all versions of AIAB to the archive
section execpt r10.6. r10.6 will be the base development release for new update's and is being classified stable, I don't know
how stable it is, but I need to draw the line somewhere.
01/10/12: Site Fixes - r10.5 files are now relinked on their own page see the archive section. aiab-2000.zip
link fixed. Couple of new r10d files uploded. Game packs links have been removed pending new permissions.
30/09/12: Quick Note - I have removed the link to the bleeding edge files for now, I will upload a new
page with the listing in the next couple of days..
30/09/12: Bleeding Edge Man - And the work begins. The last updated release by James is now available
from the downloads page. I've also added a minor update to the aiab-20070528.zip installer package (latest rtg.library) which will
get rid of the WinUAE nag screen. This will be the bases for a new version in time. You can grab the r10.5 files from
here. Also fixed the links on this page and on the downloads page and gave the downloads page a little face
lift whilst keeping the same style and theme.
Don't forget to grab the latest stable release of WinUAE 2.4.1 (09.05.2012) from the download page -
20/06/12: Amiga In A Box Rehosted - I got fedup of not being able to find AIAB, I had been wanting to find
a full backup, so I could rehost. When someone mentioned it on English Amiga Board, I decided to dig around and started to piece together
the old site manually. It took me over a week to piece it mostly together, thankfully somone on EAB had a complete backup.
They let me have the backup, so here it is in its complete form.
I plan on updating it, just have'nt had the time yet. So please standby. -
07/03/02: WINUAE 0.8.21r2 RELEASED! - Yay! After
a period of several betas - during which time Toni Wilen painstakingly tweaked
thousands of lines of code - WinUAE 0.8.21r2 is finally available
for public download! This release includes lots of
fixes to graphics, filesystem,
networking, CD, and CPU code, so if you were experiencing problems before,
grab it now, and be amazed
at Toni's super-human efficiency! -
23/02/02: WINUAE 0.8.21r1 RELEASED! - Wow! I've just
received an email from new WinUAE maintainer, Toni Wilen, informing me that
WinUAE 0.8.21r1 is publicly available - grab it now, from the
new homepage! If the recent betas
are anything to go by, it should be pretty stonking! More news on this
08/02/02: AIAB BACK IN BUSINESS! - Yippee! The metaphorical
good ship, AIAB is back on course! After a relatively short
spell in limbo, during which no-one was quite sure which way things were
heading, captain James Maurice Battle is now fully in control of
everyone's favourite, free Amiga distribution!
In other words, the data from my 'dead' harddrive has been successfully
salvaged, and everything at this end is well and truely back to normal!
I'd just like to thank everyone who has provided support over the last few
weeks; in particular Murat, Andrew, and someone else who wished to remain
anonymous. Furthermore a massive, massive 'thank you' to Jonathan,
whose incredible patience and generosity has practically made this all possible.
I've already began updating and improving AIAB, so - work permitting
- expect to see some new releases whenever I get the time! Take care folks,
and thanks once again! -
16/11/01: FEEBACK PLEASE! - Huh? Note that this has
absolutely nothing to do with AIAB, but I'd just like for feedback
a project on my uni site; its work-in-progress for some
university group coursework that we're doing. Let me know what you think,
Cheers! - James
03/11/01: AIAB r10b AVAILABLE! - Yeah! I've finally
merged the latest updates into the stand-alone AIAB packages, and am proud
to announce that AIAB r10b is now available in EXE, ZIP, and RAR archives,
with SIT and TAR formats to follow. This 'release' contains the usual fixes
and program updates; the most significant being support for the new AHI
features in the latest WinUAE. Check out this
|3/11/01: WinUAE 0.8.17r3! - Crikey! - Brian just
keeps on pumping 'em out! Here's the third release of WinUAE
0.8.17, straight out of the man's very own coding cooker. This
update contains some important fixes; including mouse pointer trails and
XP themes compatibility. Furthermore, it sees the introduction of
Jose Gil's sound-sync code, the much anticipated AHI driver,
and much more. So, does this mean a new
AIAB update will be next? Who knows... in the mean time, grab WinUAE 0.8.17r3
here now! - James
|26/10/01: HOLIDAY PHOTOS! - Yawn! - For those people
who were remotely interested in where I buggered-off to between the 14th
- 21st of September, there are some blury, oversized scans online
here - Great!
26/09/01: r10b UPDATE ONLINE! - Finally! - It's taken
far too long to release, but AIAB fans should find enough improvements
to make the rather chunky download worthwhile. As usual, theres a
summary of the most recent changes -
26/09/01: WinUAE 0.8.17r2! - Yummmy! - Heres another
splendid WinUAE release, fresh from Brian! This release has all the usuall
fixes you'd expect - including a squash
for that horrible centering bug, grab it now! - James
17/09/01: IM (SORTA) BACK! - Mmmm! Well, Im back from
my week in Gran Canaria, and what a wonderful week it was too! Anyway,
its back to business now, as I attempt to settle into my student house in
freezing Bradford. We've still yet to get any TV / Telephone / Internet
sorted out yet, so it might take a while to reply to those emails, but be
patient ;) Cya! - James
04/09/01: ON HOLIDAY! - Yippee! I'd just like to
announce that I'll be on holiday for a week (the Canaries Islands,
if anyone is interested...) from the 6th, before moving into a new house
with my student buddies, so will be unable to use the internet for a while.
Anyway, you can still email me, just dont expect a reply for a while ;) Cya!
01/09/01: GERMANY 1 - 5 ENGLAND! - Reeegh! An historic
evening in Munich saw one of England's finest ever performances, and perhaps
the heaviest defeat ever witnessed by a German team. A superb hat trick from
Michael Owen, and goals from Liverpool team-mates Emile Heskey
and Steven Gerrard (the later being a cracking strike from well outside
the area), saw England thump Germany 5-1, in a performance
that must leave fans pinching themselves in disbelief!
WINUAE 0.8.16r4 RELEASED! - Bloody 'el! Brian just keeps on churning
them out! Well, you know the drill by now;
winuae-changes.txt has the list of fixes/changes, and WinUAE0816R4.exe is
the installer binary - fresh from the man himself ;) Cya!
29/05/01: WINUAE 0.8.16r3 RELEASED! - Crikey! Brian's
just uploaded yet another updated WinUAE release! Lots of bug fixes in this
one, so check out the changes> whilst downloading
the WinUAE installer WinUAE0816R3.exe". -
22/05/01: NEW AIAB STUFF! - Cor! An update for AIABr10 - which fixes some compatibility
issues, aswell as upgrading a few things - is now available on the downloads page. Also available is the new
AIAB-JIT archive, which makes use of the
massive speed gain provided by WinUAE's new JIT compilation, to add
a few 'fancy' effects (eye-candy) to your current Workbench setup. - Grab
them both right now! -
21/05/01: WINUAE 0.8.16r2 RELEASED! - Wow! Brian King
just uploaded another WinUAE release, containing some important bug fixes.
Download it, and check out the changes.
Expect some updates to the AIAB site reflecting the new WinUAE release, just
as soon as I get the time! James
19/05/01: WINUAE 0.8.16r1 RELEASED! - Yippe! In the
(second) biggest Amiga emulation story this year, I can official confirm
that WinUAE 0.8.16r1 has today been released to the public! Grab your copy,
and read the massive changes log.
Expect more news on the new WinUAE release in a few hours time!
05/04/01: AIAB r10 RELEASED! - Eleven months, two version
numbers, (and lots of baking) later, the finest tasting AmigaInABox
is finally available for your hearty consumption; ladies and gentlemen, it
gives me great pleasure to announce AIAB r10.
This time around the emphasis is on configurablility; with the ability
to change iconsets (did I mention GlowIcons?), GUI layouts,
colour-schemes, and loads of other great stuff 'on the fly'. Yet,
speed-freaks will still notice a definate performance increase in
all aspects of the AmigaOS; with newer, faster programs and system
library files. Compatibility with older software hasn't been overlooked either
- got a program or game that wont run? Try dropping it onto AIAB's new
Degrader tool, or better still, boot into the bare-bones
MicroBench - a minimalists dream!
If you're still not convinced that this 'JIT-ready' AIAB release is
for you, then the new mouse-wheel support, easier (!) installation,
updated software, and improved stability - all documented in
the r10 changes log - should be enough to grease
your tins and get those downloads
cooking! Just chose your preferred distribution format (Win9x/NT
stand-alone installer, Zip/Rar archive, and now even Linux tar.gz package),
install it and prepare for an
unparalleled Amiga emulation experience! -
Dont forget to keep an eye on the official
AIAB message board
and join the AIAB
mailing-list to keep up-to-date with all the latest AIAB
16/03/01: WHATS UP? - Oh man! You know, as sad as it
might seem, Im really getting into a new hobby - baking! Here at Uni,
I've been missing my mum's home cooking pretty badly, so decided to pop down
the shops, and buy some ingredients - and now Im hooked!
It started with just flapjacks,
moved onto apple crumble, then cheese scones, and today I tried my hand at
chocolate cake. [pictured here] Its just so cool, mixing up your stuff then
watching it cook, and its a piece of piss to do aswell! Unfortunately, after
all my peeps (here in halls) have tried some, Im not left with much for myself,
oh well... ;(
Anyway, I just wanted to tell some people about how cool cooking is - hey,
why not give it a try!
|2/02/01: AIAB TRIBUTE ALBUM! - Rumours surrounding
the future of AIAB have been spreading like wildfire, with famous celebrities
even expressing their concern over its uncertainty. A recent article in a
music magazine, however, tells the story of how stars used their fame to
get the AIAB publicly recognised, with a soon to be released AIAB tribute
album! Read the full story here. -
|31/01/01: R10 ANNOUNCED! - Whahey! After ten days
agonising over the future of their favourite 3-and-a-bit meg download,
AIAB fans can fret no more - AIABr10 is coming your way soon, and
will almost certainly 'rock yer buns off'! 'Why jump a release number?' you
may be asking - Who knows? Who cares! The fact is AIAB is still going!
Cya! - James
|21/01/01: R9 CANCELLED!? - Huh? Yeah, you read
right peeps, AIAB R9 has officially been cancelled. Im sorry to have to break
the news to you like this folks. More information regarding my decision will
be added in the near future. James
29/12/00: AIAB FORUM OPENS! - Wow! Thats right folks,
now you can post what you want on the brand new
Board! Its magic! Although some of you had alright noticed that I
changed the menu-bar along the side, I thought I ought to make it official
;) Anyway, take a look, and check back whenever you get the chance - you
might learn something new, or get the chance to help someone else out ;)
Speaking of which, big thanks to James 'JamboJim' Thomas for sorting out
the cgi stuff for me. Dont forget to check out
his site jambo.abime.net on EmuUnlim
too (after you've seen the message board of course...). Cya later! -
|29/12/00: AIAB-2000r9 DELAYED! - Sorry peeps! Although
I had promised to release AIABr9 by Christmas, it seems this was a
little over-optimistic. Although its coming along nicely, theres still some
important bits missing that I hope to get into the next release (e.g.
GlowIcons). I may even hold out until WinUAE-JIT is released,
so that AIAB can take full advantage of the massive speed gain.
So until then, keep your eyes peeled and enjoy the new year - Cya!
7/12/00: MERRY CHRISTMAS! - Ho Ho Ho! Its the festive
season again; time for downing the shery, slapping litres of spray-cream
on mircowave-burned minced pies, and generally greeting everyone with a warm
smile and festive goodwill....ahhh.
Anyway, massive apologies to those people who have emailed me recently -
Im sorry, I've just be so snowed under (hahaha!) with Uni work, and
have been unable to reply. I expect we will be winding down soon though,
so replies will definately get sent! I also plan to get AIABr9 out
pretty soon (by Christmas anyway, so it'll give everyone something to do
when the Queen is rattling on), and if that wasn't enough a brand new
message board will also be getting added to the site, allowing users
to keep up to date with all the latest AIAB tweaks, whilst helping out the
less experienced newbies.
So stay warm and happy this Christmas, and I'll see you all soon -
|30/10/00: EGROUPS MAIL-BOMB?! - It would seem that
someone has mail-bombed the AIAB egroups.com mailing-list. Quite why anyone
would want to do this is a mystery - for a start there are only 133
members (at least there were at 23:56, I wouldn't be surprised to see this
number drop as people unsubscribe, and frankly who can blame them?).
I whole-heartedly apologise for any inconvenience, as I feel partly to blame
;( Rest assured, myself and other members of the mailing-list have reported
this incident to the egroups staff, and will try to ensure it doesnt happen
again. Once again, sorry folks!
| 27/10/00: CHECK IT, MAN!
- Hoooo! (not hoare) - A guy in my block at Uni is in a 'band' (beat possey),
givin' it large with some new choons, they're kickin'. Anyway, they're just
starting-out in this cut-throat industry, and need some support. Please check
out the beat possey site, listen to their
mp3s and purchase some of their fantasic merchandise - Its 'da bomb.
|11/10/00: AT UNIVERSITY! - Whahey! I've been up
here in Bradford for around a month (which is why I've not done anything
to the site....), and its great. I've more or less settled-in now, so things
arent as hectic - I'll even be able to use the internet for free (so theres
no excuses for not uploading new stuff...)!
Anyway, my address has obviously changed, so take a look at
this page before sending up those 'thank-you' cheques
(Im official a poor student now...). I've got a telephone in my room too,
so if you have a query about something, give me a ring - if I'm in, I'll
Finally, I've been tinkering around (struggling) with RedHat Linux (6.1)
recently, but am having a real nightmare. Perhaps its the wrong distribution
for me? Anyway, I hear that RedHat 7 is out now, so if someone wants to do
me a copy, and send it up....
|27/08/00: AIAB LINUX! - Those Linux peeps who have
been struggling to get AIAB working with *nixUAE (problems with file attributes
etc.), should check out aiab-r10c.tar.gz from the downloads page,
a 'ready made' package by none other than James 'JamboJim' Thomas.
