6/12/14: Files Readded - I have readded all archive releases.

Everything should be working again, apart from GamePacks. - FOL

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. - MadAngus

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. - MadAngus

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. - MadAngus

01/10/12: Site Fixes - r10.5 files are now relinked on their own page see the archive section. link fixed. Couple of new r10d files uploded. Game packs links have been removed pending new permissions. - MadAngus

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.. - MadAngus

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 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 - MadAngus

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. - F0L

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! - James

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 soon...James

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! - James

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

Whahey!  A new screenshot...and a new background ;) 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! James

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 - Cya! James

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! - James

Michael Own - hat-trick hero, England superstar! 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! - James

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". - James

Use WinUAE's new JIT compilation in highly productive ways ;) 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! - James

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! James

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.

An old screenshot (of r8) yes, but it still illustrates what can be achieved! 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! - James

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 happenings!

Pretty good, huh?  Click for a larger version! 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!

Yummm... 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. - James

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 AIAB Discussion 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 on EmuUnlim too (after you've seen the message board of course...). Cya later! - James

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! James

Shamelessly obligatory Christmas graphic, knocked up in under a minute! 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 - James!

30/10/00: EGROUPS MAIL-BOMB?! - It would seem that someone has mail-bombed the AIAB 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!

Check it! 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 pick up.

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. Cheers Jim!
