Yes! JP #19 is finally there! I love it! Great gfx, sweet music and nice articles. Way to go, Ghandy. You rock! Count me in for the jubilee issue of JP: issue 20! A Piggy from me because I wrote a few bytes for JP #19.

Great work, it works perfect, I enjoy a lot! Cool artiks here, read and figure why Sceners keep the Scene spirit alive or are Diskmags completely out of fashion? Really? Read it out! Great work, cool music and perfect Amiga style! :)

Still need to read it all but at the moment this dinoscener is looking at beautiful graphics while listening to great music and all this is happening just turning a few pages.

Instant thumb up and hopefully this is not the last one!

Didn't make it through yet, but after half an hour of reading the thumbness is obvious.

Original version has been replaced by a slightly updated version.

Fantastic news that Ghandy managed to release yet another issue of the last dinosaur. I have not managed to read it yet, but I hope someone can send it to me via snailmail. I can be contacted via Linkedin, hehe. I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Great efforts from all involved! Keep these mags coming.

Awesome to have a fresh diskmag in my hands again - great job Ghandy! Have not finished reading all the articles yet, but loved it all so far - and 3 amazing tunes as well to accompany the reading :-)

Love the panel design, and a few of the articles. Good to see the old farts of my youth still doing this even with the reduction or changing of viewership.

A really precious issue of JP with many interesting articles. I just downloaded it and enjoyed the beautiful graphics and the great music while reading.

Thanks to everyone involved. Will read it during Revision stream breaks ;)

Yay! I didn't realise this was ready for release. Nice collection of articles and it has the usual nice, authentic diskmaggy feel. Kudos for keeping JP going - great work! Worked well on a PiMiga.

Glad you used my .diz /nFo too. :p

Ohh Yeahh another JP !! Epic !!

So it took me a bit of effort to properly setup the emulator and start reading JP#19 but it was worth the effort. I’m impressed by the quality of the writing that are very diverse, well articulated and bring real value to the readers. I simply could not stop reading. Ah! Ah! The user experience is also excellent. The musics brings the atmosphere we need and the art by Jade and Critikill .... pure madness. Awesome work from the whole team.

I’ve got a few articles that are left to read and then I’ll download all the previous issues of JP. I’d like to learn more about the Amiga scene. Thanks Ghandy and everyone involved.

Wow, great pixels and fine music... and loooots of articles. I really enjoyed reading the "First Love" interview, f.e. @ghandy did you noticed Overlanders is nominated for a Meteoriks Award? Cool to get some background and even more cool it's about an Atari group in an Amiga Mag.

Another issue! Nice! Thank you!

Arisen from dinosaur dna! JP#19 !
Keep on rocking and lets go towards issue 20!

I can't say I've ever been too much into disk mags, but this had me hooked for several hours. Thank you!

Again a great issue. Had a nice read! Hoping for more in the future.

Yeah, I've got it to work with WinUAE and read a bit. NICE issue. :) But I'd like to remark it's not true that I've never been to a party. The first party I attended was Fiasko 2000 in Uherske Hradiste, Czech Republic. In 2001 I was at Core and Dialogos. In 2005 I attended Breakpoint and tUM, in 2008 Realtime Generation, in 2010 tUM again, in 2012 Function, in 2015 Evoke. In 2017, 2018 and 2019 I was at Demobit. However, it's true that I haven't met you, Ghandy, at a demoparty. I recall having asked after Breakpoint 2005 my travel companions where Ghandy had been as I had expected to meet him but not actually met him. But the two of us met in Vienna short before you got your new job as a journalist.

There was also a typo in the article about diskmags: the last issue of Hugi was #38, not #21.

I'd be happy if you managed to find the time and motivation to make issue 20, otherwise thank you very much for your work so far, you've done a good job.

Great issue.. cool GFX and great tunes and interesting content!

Cool mag, I especially enjoyed the laid back tunes to listen while reading the articles. Also thanks for the article about Deadline, we're more than happy to welcome you again in Berlin (and everbody else, even the Berliners ;) )

Another great release! Especially enjoyed the interviews with Sim and Galahad. Also the Triflex history article was really fun to read.

An amazing fact found within was that the guy who wrote the game Twintris is one half of Royksopp!

Very nice mag - love that you guys are keeping the diskmags alive with this. I specially enjoyed the interview with Sim about his work on the Voyage demo from Razor 1911.

Keep up the good work - here's hoping for JP20.

Sorry very much! A digital mouse ate our data on our web server, but the archive is now available again.

Really nice read, with a good soundtrack and a good quality of articles.

A bit saddened it might be the last Jurassic Pack issue for a while.

This is not really a self-thumb. I wrote the original version of this diskmag engine a loooong time ago, but I was not directly involved in JP#19.

Thumb goes up!

Sorry, I still didn't manage to find the time for the online issue of JP#19. I will try to finish everything until the end of this year.

Anyway, due to internal problems with another team member, I declare JP as being dead. At least for now. Nobody knows what the future brings. Maybe I am motivated again in 10 years, have more spare time or the war between me and the other person from the team surprisingly finds a sudden end. But I don't think so.

Also, I think if there should be an active diskmag on Amiga again, it should not come out on AGA. Most people nowadays code for ECS/OCS or use it for their emulator etc. instead of the AGA chipset.
added on the 2022-11-24 10:59:48 by ghandy ghandy
I'm sad to read that JP is dead.
added on the 2022-11-24 13:08:02 by Adok Adok
I am really sorry that JP is dead ... I really think that jubilee issue 20 should be released some day. If there is a coder outthere motivated to code an OCS magazine engine and Lars is motivated to be maineditor, I promise I will do my best to act ad a co-editor again.
added on the 2022-12-15 23:26:12 by sAne sAne
@Sane: you are not really up-to-date its not alive but its not the end either.. (atleast that is what the FB workgroup picture says)
added on the 2022-12-15 23:40:23 by magic magic
Magic: Before spreading any false rumours, you should first ask those responsible what is true. JP is dead, at least for now. Really nobody cares about your comments.

One insane person in the former team was already more than enough to make life difficult for me.

And now back to the topic, please.
added on the 2023-01-14 07:42:49 by ghandy ghandy
@ghandy it was my interpertation of the FB picture you changed saying this is not the end.. but we already chatted about it..
We just have to accept you wont lead the making of a new issue and JP is truely resting in peace..
added on the 2023-01-14 22:04:14 by magic magic
The online issue of JP19 is finally out. Read it here: https://tarnkappe.info/jurassic-pack
added on the 2023-03-09 22:57:23 by ghandy ghandy
The online version sucks, it’s infested with ads and the whole envelope the website represents is in German. Diskmag was supposed to be international and English so it all in online release is confusing all looks like just clickbait ambition or scam. I’d strongly recommend to aboid the site and mag creators to rethink the release
added on the 2023-03-10 07:32:41 by hollowone hollowone
let's interview some people about parties they never actually attended

What Hollowone said. All said, it's mildly enjoyable.

Also how many people died from upgrading their Amiga? Asking for a hyperbolic friend.

Why are you so unobjective, why so aggressive? Did I hurt anyone?

Really, no one has anything against someone running their adblocker. I was also unhappy with the implementation. But you simply can't realise the experience of reading a diskmag on a computer with nice background music and appropriate graphics in this way. At least not with Wordpress. The solution of Conspiracy is way better, for example.

But since many people have problems configuring an emulator and no longer own the original hardware, I saw this as an option, even if a less than ideal one, to offer the texts to all interested parties across platforms.

On the other side I have included a lot links which provide further informations, additional graphics and videos.
added on the 2023-03-12 08:04:20 by ghandy ghandy
online option is OK, just the way it's implemented is just annoying, thus my own personal opinion. infested with ads is a fact, not unobjective opinion I believe. Adblocker is always an option, but I personally feel surprised to see a demo scene hobby project so infested by them, thus I give it a personal no. We always stood against any signals on commercializing on demoscene products. Ads included, by principle!

Nothing against you Ghandy nor the mag itself (I always liked JP).

Nowhere I can find being aggressive too. Just stating essential opinion about the online release, which I find unfriendly (UX-wise). You can always ignore it and wonder why you have bounce-offs in Google Analytics without an articulative opinion from the audience, that actually bounced off and never returned.
added on the 2023-03-16 14:10:55 by hollowone hollowone
hollowone, i'm not sure you realise that ghandy simply implemented the online version of JP into a non-scene blog/magazine he runs. what's so bad about that? not everyone has the time and skills to write a completely new online engine. i, for one, am very grateful that ghandy put it online at least like this.
