I even have the floppy discs/cass, and didn't there use to be something called free shareware for the Amiga? my memories are so bad now, anyway i know i use to play a lot of shareware stuff on some machine, i do need to dust them all off though. As T.J said be good to play on the originals, if the power packs are still working that is!

Impressive.

The only one that I know of that you haven't listed is the Commodore 128/64 version. I'm not sure if that was just a re-boxed CBM 64 version or if any real changes were made.

Agreed - very nice collection.

I do feel the need to ask one question though - have you reached Elite rank in all of them...?

Hi, there was no official 128 version of Elite, a couple of fan re-engineered versions have popped up over the years. The official version was the C64 Disk Edition, that had a few extras if loaded on to a 128.
