Installing Games Add-On

I finally managed to d/l the Arti Games add-on but am having a problem installing it.

The Path that AmiKit is in is :


When I install the add-on there, it makes another AmiKit dir and installs everything in it so I end up with 2 AmiKit directories, which is confusing, and the games don't show up in the AmiKit Games folder from the AmiKit desktop.

I also tried installing it to the AmiKit Games directory, but it still duplicates the AmiKit folder.

I did try manually moving the Arti games folder into the proper Games directory and it does show up in the AmiKit folder from the desktop under Games.

Is that okay to do that or is there a "proper" way to do it ?

I am running AmiKit under Amiga Forever Premium 2012

Hi LogMan,

and sorry for the delay, I am bit busy these days.

Now I realized the add-on was released before the AmiKit became the part of Amiga Forever. This means the add-on is meant to install into regular AmiKit installation, let's say C:\Program Files\AmiKit

But this is not a problem as the executable is just a wrap for the files inside. No big deal. You can install the add-on executable anywhere you want. An "AmiKit" folder will be created there. Enter it, using eg. Windows explorer, and you will see folders like Demos, Games, Prefs, utilities and WBStartup. Copy these folders into AmiKit root where folders like Demos, Games, etc. resides.

The new games can be found in AmiKit:Games/Arti folder. There's one more demo in AmiKit:Demos folder too!

If you have more questions, feel free to ask. Check out some (old) videos showing some basic features of AmiKit:

Alternatively you can use portals like or and ask there. I am sure there are much more people than here, who in addition can react more promptly than me

Thanks for the reply, no problem with the delay, I understand you have a life besides here too

Pretty well what I was thinking about it being released before Amiga Forever.

I just wondered if it was safe to just copy the files over to the right folder after it installed them.

Thanks again.

Since I installed Amikit seperately from Amiga Forever 2012, the game add-on installed perfectly.
