The software has been tested and appears to work well on

  • * Amiga 1000 using an Individual ACA500plus and Blizzard 1230 MK IV with 128
    Mb of ram, under OS 3.1 with AmiTCP 2.98b2, and Roadshow and a PlipBox
    using firmware version 0.6. SFS on a 28 GB partition, FFS on a 4 GB
    partition, and FAT32 on a 16GB partition.
  • * Amiga 1200 with Microbotics M1230 XA, with 128MB ram, OS 3.1 with Cloanto
    3.x roms, PCMCIA wifi adaptor, as well as Plipbox 0.6. FAT32 32 GB
    partition. SFS 4 GB partition. AmiTCP 4.1 Pro (aka EasyNet).
  • * AmigaForever 2016, on the included AmigaSYS machine with with and without
    using JIT emulation. FFS 2 GB. and passthrough to host OS filesystem
    (Windows 10 NTFS).
  • * I’ve recieved a report that DizzyTorrent works on a Vampire under FFS but
    possibly corrupted a FAT32 partition on Vampire. Used with MiamiDX, and
    SDNet.

Works nicely on MorphOS 3.9 and on AmigaOS 4, which got nice Amiga 68k support. Use this torrent app and any other torrent app in the way that it doesn’t break any laws. Be wise.
