Hyperion Entertainment releases Hotfix for AmigaOS 3.2.2

Brussels – April 23, 2023
Hyperion Entertainment is providing a Hotfix for the recently released AmigaOS 3.2.2 update.

Critical bugs were found soon after the AmigaOS 3.2.2 release which need to be addressed promptly.

The Hotfix comes as two separate and distinct installers.

  • The first features an updated installation archive, for those who have not yet installed the AmigaOS 3.2.2 update.This includes the changes from the hotfix, so you don't need to install it afterwards. Please follow the instructions as described at the enclosed "HowToInstall" text.
  • The second is a smaller installation archive, to be used with an existing AmigaOS 3.2.2 system. The hotfix adf should be used which can be found under the "ADFs/Hostfix" folder.

The following problems are addressed by this Hotfix:

  • Slowness of ReAction programs using page.gadget (part of the layout.gadget file);
  • GIF-datatype incorrectly refused to run on plain 68000 Amigas, e.g. Amiga 600 ;
  • Rendering and undo issues in IconEdit, if used with CyberGraphX;
  • Other small fixes in IconEdit and TextEdit.

You can download Hotfix for AmigaOS 3.2 here.

We wish to thank the users that quickly drew our attention to these issues. While we are aware of other reported problems, which have yet to be addressed, we still feel the need to release this Hotfix now.


Hyperion Entertainment CVBA obtains key victory in US Federal Court

Brussels  – April 2, 2023

Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to announce it obtained a sweeping victory in the US District Court of the Western District of Washington at Seattle in the litigation brought against Hyperion by Cloanto Corporation and the Amiga Parties (Amiga Inc., Itec, LLC and Amino Development Corporation).

The Court dismissed all of the remaining claims in this proceeding filed by Cloanto Corporation and the Amiga Parties against Hyperion Entertainment and found entirely in favor of Hyperion Entertainment by granting Hyperion's Motion for Summary Judgment as to all counts.

The instant case was initiated against Hyperion Entertainment on December 14, 2017 (!) when plaintiff Cloanto Corporation (later joined by the Amiga Parties) filed suit against Hyperion in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York alleging Hyperion exceeded the rights granted to it by the 2009 Settlement Agreement thereby resulting in copyright and trademark infringement.

Hyperion Entertainment wishes to thank all of the AmigaOS 3.x and 4.x development teams as well as our beta-testers for continuing their work during the many years of litigation.

During these many years Hyperion Entertainment was always keen to bring this litigation to a negotiated outcome and still, to this day, remains of the belief that an amicable resolution between the parties bringing all remaining litigation to a close, would be in the interest of the Amiga Community as a whole.

A copy of the Court’s order of March 30, 2023 can be found here.


Alinea Computer offers Quake 2 as a digital version for AmigaOS 4.x

Brussels – April 17, 2024

Alinea Computer has taken over the distribution of Quake 2 for AmigaOS 4. The first Amiga version of Quake 2 dates back to 2002 by Hyperion Entertainment and has been continued and greatly improved in this tradition. Steffen Häuser is responsible for the port and has implemented numerous improvements. In addition to support for various mission CDs and mods, GL4ES/Warp3DNova support and playing soundtracks as OGG Vorbis have also been implemented.

The AmigaOS 4 version is available for download from Alinea Computer.

It should be noted that to run the AmigaOS 4 version of Quake 2, the data files of the PC version are required. These can be purchased at a reasonable price, for example, via Steam. Freely available mods and mission CDs are already available on Aminet.

Features and system requirements at a glance:


  • AmigaOS 4 native version
  • GL4ES, MiniGL, and Software Renderer
  • full support for mission CDs "The Reckoning" and "Ground Zero"
  • Ports of the unofficial mission CD "Zaero" and about 50 multiplayer mods will be released soon on os4depot/Aminet, these downloads require the new version of Quake 2
  • AmigaInput support
  • CD audio works again (in the old version only compatible with older CD drives)
  • As an alternative to CD audio, Ogg Vorbis files can be played as a soundtrack, in this case, the music files from this version are preinstalled with a Steam/Gog install
  • Installer now works with both PC CD version of Quake 2 and with the Steam and Gog Classic version, using the Steam/Gog Classic installer will also install the two mission CDs. We recommend using the Steam version for easy installation.
  • As an alternative to the .cin intros, the game now also supports .avi and .mpeg files (a script to convert the .ogv files of the Steam version is included on the ISO, if you want the higher resolution video files)

System Requirements:

  • Software: AmigaOS 4.1 and the data files from Steam, Gog, or CD version.
  • Hardware: At least 150 MHz PowerPC, 32 MB RAM, Graphics card, at least
  • 1 GB of free hard disk space, A1222 is currently not supported, game can also be played on QEmu and UAE PPC
