Umilator

Umilator boot screen

Developer: Bernd Meyer
First demonstration: September 5th 2002
(Melbourne Amiga User Group meeting )
Cancelled: December 1st 2002

Umilator was the official name of 'Berniethlon'. When Bernd 'Bernie' Meyer ended his contract with Haage & Partner he continued to replace bits of code the proposed Amithlon v2 upgrade that had been written by Harold Frank or Haage & Partner. This would allow him to sell the emulator as an independent product and resolve the legality issues that had plagued the Haage & Partner version. However, he continued to be harassed by his former employers who attempted to prevent other developers (such as the people behind Picasso96) licensing their code to him. After some attempt for mediation by an unknown third party, talks broke down in fall/autumn 2002. Bernie set December 1st, 2002 as a date when the situation must be resolved, otherwise he indicated he would abandon development. Although Amiga Inc. provided support for a short while (announcing a range of x86-based machines), they did nothing to support the Umilator project and a public notice was given that Umilator was effectively dead.
