:Not to be confused with the software company Hyperion Solutions.

Hyperion Entertainment CVBA is a Belgian software company which specialises in porting Windows games to Amiga, Linux and Macintosh. They were also the company contracted by Amiga Incorporated to develop AmigaOS 4, which runs only on the (now unavailable) AmigaOne systems, Commodore Amiga systems with a Phase5 PowerUP accelerator board, Pegasos II systems and Sam440 systems.

Hyperion's game ports include (but may not be limited to): Heretic II, Shogo: Mobile Armor Division, Gorky 17, Quake II, SiN and Descent: FreeSpace � The Great War. On their official website, Hyperion also claimed to have acquired the license to port Worms Armageddon, but it was never released by Hyperion.

Hyperion's current Managing Partner is Evert Carton, who took over the position after Ben Hermans stepped down in mid-2003. Hermans had courted controversy by repeatedly claiming that MorphOS, an AmigaOS-like competitor, was illegal, and had on several occasions threatened to take legal action claiming Bill Buck leading the Genesi company funding MorphOS was a "con-artist". On 29 May 2007, Carton stated that the open-source AmigaOS reimplementation AROS was "probably illegal", on page 27 of court documents related to the Amiga-Hyperion court case.

In 2007, Hyperion were sued by Amiga Incorporated for trademark infringement in the Washington Western District Court in Seattle, US. Amiga, Inc. sued Hyperion for breach of contract, trademark violation and copyright infringement concerning the development and marketing of AmigaOS 4.0. Hyperion have launched a counter action claiming fraud in Amiga, Inc. handling of Amiga intellectual properties and debts. In defiance of the ongoing legal dispute, in late September 2007 Hyperion published, distributed and marketed a standalone version of AmigaOS 4 for classic Amiga, an action Amiga, Inc. had claimed as illegal.

However, in 30 September 2009, Hyperion was granted an exclusive, perpetual, worldwide right to AmigaOS 3.1 in order to use, develop, modify, commercialize, distribute and market AmigaOS 4.x and subsequent versions of AmigaOS (including AmigaOS 5). In 2010, the rights to all other versions of AmigaOS, the AmigaOS brand and Amiga trademarks has now passed to Commodore USA LLC, legally separating AmigaOS 4 from the rest of the earlier AmigaOS releases and the Commodore Amiga computer.

After my last video (See ), I decided to show how the same techniques would apply to bigger ships. And to prove I do fly "The Best" occasionally. Sequences - Assassination mission against a Teladi Albatross Attacking Xenon sector 534 in the Hyperion.. and showing how NOT to take out a Xenon K :D Dogfighting in Mookeye's Revenge in a Pirate Nova Raider. Due to a copyright violation I was forced to change the soundtrack. The music you hear now is "Who's got the time" by Madison park, from the album Boutique. Doesn't fit as well but its a nice song.
