Amiga & AROS

With the permission of Electronic Arts, Inc. the Computer History Museum is pleased to make available, for non-commercial use, the source code to the 1986 version I of DeluxePaint. There are 89 files of C language source, comprising almost 17,000 lines of code in about 474 KB of text.

The CHM keeps on doing awesome stuff like this. Also thanks to EA for releasing this historic code.

The source code still compiles and produces a valid Amiga program!

If they'd released the latest version of DPaint's source.

If I recall, the latest versions still won't work in RTG.

Still pretty cool though, considering it's EA and they're quite hated these days. I remember a time when EA made some seriously awesome games, from the period between the Atari 8-Bits and the Amiga/Genesis, they came out with some of my favorites.

Starflight, Racing Destruction Set, Archon, etc.
