The two covers above are for the same issue. The one on the left was the published cover of our November issue. The cover on the right should have been the cover for the November issue.
It is very chic these days for a publication to create two or more covers for an issue. One cover goes to subscribers while a second (and sometimes third) cover is used for newsstand sales. One line of thought is that a subscriber will pick up the extra newsstand copy out of confusion "1 don't remember getting this issue."
Hflitoiial Cont|j Some talented art designers are providing their publishers with two alternative covers specifically for newsstand sales. Recently one magazine used a popular celebrity with a smile on one cover and a frown on another. For collectors, they must have both. This is also true for the celebrity's fans. What it means for the publisher is double counts and inflated reader numbers remember, just because more magazines are sold docs not mean that more magazines are read.
All that said, you might believe it was pretty cool of AC to create two covers. OK, it might have been, but the dark cover was never printed only the lighter cover. The dark cover was the original design and should have been the cover submitted to the printer. Somewhere along the way, between the designer's computer and the graphic's film recorder, the background graphic was lost. The issue was running very close to deadline and the people checking the copy were not aware of the missing graphic, after all, the rest of the cover was correct. The first time the staff saw the final cover, it had
been printed, shipped, and mailed.
Tliis is probably the only time the alternative cover will ever be seen. But it does illustrate a point. Consider how a simple omission changes the entire look of the magazine.
The one added (or missing) graphic makes so much difference in the final result. Without the graphic, the cover is able to stand on its own. I lowever, with the graphic, the effect is much more intense and dramatic. The graphic adds depth to the final result, but it is only missed if you know it should be there.
What If There Wasn't... During an interview show recently, the question was raised, "What if there had never been a United States?"
Needless to say, the results appear to be dramatic. We have no way of knowing the full effect the absence of the US would have had on European and Asian history, manufacturing, science, weapons, energy, agriculture, arts, and a million other areas the US has either influenced or contributed. To attempt to imagine the world without the US is not impossible, but certainly doomed to errors.
Each of us affects the other. Our work, play, interests, dreams, and more contribute to the entire effort. Nothing is valueless, in my opinion, this is why Commodore finally failed. They could not be bothered to support and promote the entire market and they allowed key areas to falter, just as in the cover, they did not recognize that a major section of their full effect was missing, because they did not know what it should look like.
A major piece of Amiga Technologies' plan remains unplaced. There still is no word on their marketing plan for North America. We have been informed that several parties have made offers io AT and they are working to clear up the problems. Until they do, the Amiga's image to the world remains at less than it should be and no one can tell how dramatic the finat result could be until all of the pieces have been applied.

ISM rnrff ImBIBM 1 Dear AC, I own an Amiga 1000 with a Microbodcs SGSi interface. I would like to see an article in the Amazing Amiga on the new I- Omega Zip DRNE and Syquest EZ13S, removable hard drives. Will they work with my Amiga 1000 and Microbotics interface as well as later Amiga models?
Sincerely, David Rydell Rochester, N.Y. There is an article in the works now on the Zip drive. Please be patient, our ivriters are almost all free-lance ami very independent, but we are extremely grateful for their contributions.
Dear AC, I have been scouring the newspapers in my area (Lets Angeles) for any mention of the Amiga or Amiga Technologies without success. This is more than a little reminiscent of Commodore's inability to promote its products. Will we be seeing new Amigas, and if so, who will be carrying them?
In the meantime, 1 own an A3000 running Workbench 2,1, which is fine for most of my current needs: wordprocessing with Final Writer 4), games, and telecommunications. Unfortunately, the battery for the clock has expired, forcing me to update the time and date each time I start the computer, and I am "locked out" of most of the few new software programs available for the Amiga because my machine does not have the AGA chipset.
How can 1 get the battery replaced, and which of the currently available 24-hit boards (Retina, Picasso 11, and Cybervision) offers the best AGA emulation? I would rather buy a new machine, but as that does not appear to be an option at this time, 1 need to repair and upgrade my A3000.
1 am also considering the purchase of a new printer to replace the 24-pin dot matrix I am now using. I would like to purchase a Hewlett- Packard 660C, but I am concerned that there is no Workbench driver available for it. Do you know if a printer driver is available for the newer DeskJets, and if so, where might I get it?
I congratulate you and your magazine for "staying the course" during these difficult times for the Amiga. None of my friends or acquaintances use the Amiga, and bulletin board systems come and go in this area, so Amazing Computing is my only source of Amiga news and information.
Sincerely, Jeffrey T, Powell West Covina, CA On page 48 of this issue is otir Amiga Dealers Yellow Pages, This is a complete list of dealers as of December 15, 1995.
Dear AC, I would like to start out by saying that you're doing a great job with your magazine. With information being drawn thin, you do a great job reporting it. This led me to think of the best way for the Amiga to get back on its feet. I can sum it up in one word, advertising.
The IBM has proved, that with good advertising any product can become a success. Even though the IBM used false advertising, i.e. the first multi-tasking machine. The Amiga, with its superb graphics ability and processor power, can blow the IBM off the planet with a good advertising campaign. I have always pondered something along tire lines of, "Amiga, the computer for the next century and beyond." If some creative genius at ESCOM P.R. is reading this, go right ahead and use it. Like other Amiga users, we would like nothing more than to see our computer truly competing with the IBM.
The Amiga can make its return , and its presence felt. Let IBM swaller in lies, until Amiga unveils the truth.
Sincerely, Scott Doane Edwardsburg, Ml Dear Amazing, Now that the Amiga once again has a parent company, maybe we software developers can finally breathe a sigh of relief. It has been a rough year trying to develop software without the help of CATS.
Over a full year ago we sent in the Amiga developer's registration form and never heard any response from Commodore at all. We perservered, though, and got our hands on as many reference books as we could get; including the AGA hardware memory map (graphics chips only) and the V2.0 ROM Kemal books.
Currently, we are at work on many great projects: like WAVEstudio, CopDisAsm, Serlink, PCKLab, PaletteTool, and WBSoundTool. Also being developed are several system-friendly AGA-compat- ible games which will fully support all CPUs and all known graphics cards for the Amiga: Goblin (multiplayer Pac-Man type game) and Tank (multiplayer 260(1 style tank game). In addition, (unless someone beats us to the punch) we plan to develop the Amiga version of Wolfenstein 3D: Multiplayer, Doom I and Doom 11, a Ranma 1 2 fighting game, and finally an Amiga version of WordPerfect 5.0!
With the addition of a Zorro-based graphics card at least a 68030 CPU, and a hard drive, any Amiga can possess better than PO-compatible graphics speed and functionality. As a matter a fact, we have been bemoaning the short-sightedness of the European game developers who are currently only supporting the base A1200 unit. They are not supporting VGA monitors or enhanced graphics cards, even when the software (and the user) would greatly benefit. That policy is only hurting the Amiga market in the long term, and we think it is foolish to precede like that. We feel the need to try and fill in the
gap and become everyone's favorite Amiga software company; we will even be nice to our competitors! Unfortunately, there are some snags at the moment.
Certain topics continue to elude us, due only to the impossibility of finding the necessary documentation. We want desparately to write software drivers for PCMCIA modems, LAN, and sound cards but we need a system friendly description of how to access the card slot. We really do not want to resort to "poking" , What we really need is the address and or phone number of the current owners of the Amiga OS. We do not care if we have to write in German either! We really need your assistance on this one.
After all, we know you have many worldwide contacts with Amiga. Surely, there is a developer support mechanism being put into place somewhere. We want in there!
Any help you could send would enormously appreciated.

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT PXL COMPUTERS of Canada has announced a new combat epic game, CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, to be available for the Amiga by January,
1996.
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT, which carries warnings of "extremely realistic violence and gore" is not recommended for children or "sensitive persons," is the story of a warrior about to embark on a most dangerous journey. Your goal is to dethrone the evil master of an immense castle. You begin your mission in rancid, putrid catacombs of this castle. However, beware. The master is aware of your presence, and he has placed guards on every floor. You must work your way up to the top of the castle, and defeat all who stand in your way in order to battle the master.
Helping you along will be the spirit of your deceased mentor.
Fiowever, even with his aid, this will without question be a physically- draining experience. Bv journey's end, you will be injured, bruised, and tired.
But if you think of the price of failure, this is a small price to pay. For should you lose a battle, you will suffer a fate worse than death. You see, the master does look favorably upon assassins.
Thus, he has the power to make you immortal, and you will be forced to serve him for eternity in this most unpleasant environment. Even worse, you will be confined to a single room, becoming one of his guards. And, that is the CAPITAL PUNISHMENT.
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT has been announced as having superior graphic control as well as the ability to battle via modem and a variety of other unique features. PXL Computers states that a playable demo of the game will be available on-line very soon check out the BBS in your area.

MacroForm: Power Modeling in Lightwave 3D When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Push a Button.
R. Shamms Mortier For the moment, Amiga LightWave fans can gloat
that they have access to a professional tool that PC LightWave
users don't possess. MacroForm is a high end deformation
utility that plugs into LightWave on the Amiga. It is a Macro
keys are part of the LightWave Modeler system. Macro keys, as
a generic term, are keys on the keyboard that have been
programmed to start a process or bring up a menu.
On the Amiga, LightWave Modeler MacroForm makes your modeling life easier because, with just the tap of one key, you can access modeling tools that are either new to LightWave or expand upon its creative options.
Users are familiar with the set of helpful modeling macros that come with the software. Why then should you consider buying MacroForm?
Simple. MacroForm makes your modeling life easier because, with just good idea to have a working knowledge of LightWave itself before attempting to get too overly creative with MacroForm. If not, you can quickly find yourself in over your head.
The tap of one key, you can access modeling tools that are either new to LightWave or expand upon its creative options.
The first thing after installation is to hit the F I key. This brings up an assignment menu, allowing you to target various MacroForm operations to the function keys. Alternate groups of up to ten macros can be saved and reassigned using the KeyMaster option. This makes MacroForm a gateway that serves the individual LightWave Modeler user. All functions can be edited to fine tune them for individual users and individual projects.
Standard MacroForm Assignments and Their Use "Align and Center" is used to center your foreground and background data. This is very useful when performing Boolean operations, where one object displaces or drills shapes into another. Data can be aligned to either the foreground or background as the source. Data can be set to align using your choice of X,Y,Z references, and data can beset for automatic resizing as well on separate XYZ axis, all axis, or XY, XZ, YZ combinations.
You can also use this function to simply align data relative to the coordinate origin. No more manual frustration, just point and click.
"Dimensions" gives you feedback on the size of your model, and allows you to alter those dimensions. Scaling cam occur independently or by using Figure 1. The MacroForm '‘Keymaster’’ assignment is your first stop in assigning MacroForm functions to the Function keys on the Amiga keyboard.

Fargo Printers various reference data. You can resize either targeted data or all data.
"Distance and Angles" is a cousin of the dimensioning tool in that it returns data on the distance and angles between two points.
"Slice and Dice" should come in quite handy for Modeler users. Before an object can be deformed, it must be segmented into polygons that can take on the needed effect. A cylinder, for instance, made of only vertical polygonal planes will not respond to a bend operation. Slice and Dice segments the object automatically, based upon parameters set by the user.
"Slice" refers to data segmented along one axis (linear), while "Dice" refers to data segmented along two axis (bidirectional). In addition, MacroForm allows Polar, Radial, and Hemispherical slicing. The best way to get a feel for what each of these operations prepare you for is to try them out and then deform the object.
Keep visual notes in the form of saved and named target objects. "NewBox" may appear to be a simple tool in that all that it does is to allow for the creation of boxes with rounded edges, but that's a major achievement for LightWave users.
Now for the major stuff. RailToolz is the soul of the software, giving the Modeler user a wealth of rail extrusion tools. Rail extrusions arc sometimes known as ?scuipt on a path, because they take a surface and use path information to extrude it in 3D space. If you take a circle as an example and extrude it on another circle, you get a donut shape.
Organic sculpting demands rail extrusions.
MacroForm uses spline curve modeling in an extrusion environment. Using a spline curve as a If your vision includes objects that move beyond spheres and checkered planes, get MacroForm.
Template, called a "form curve", you can bend, form, mold, scale, stretch, and twist your 3D primitives into fully sculpted shapes. There are twelve RailToolz in all. If all that this software did was to offer this collection of tools, it would be worth twice the price asked.
A full Preferences requester accompanies this tool. With it, you can reset the tools to their defaults, access form files and temp files by path strings, create initial form curves to work from, create forms (linear, slope, dome, or sine), set the number of points on a curve (knots) and their precision, and more.
It's the RailBend tool that most LightWave Modeler users will really appreciate, allowing you to easily bend objects on a 2D or 3D curve. The documentation is bursting with tutorials and examples that lead you through every process in this module in a step-by-step fashion. For ease of use, there is a "SmartRai!" Module included. This will allow you to choose a polygonal shape and automatically assign that shape to whatever complex curves are placed in the background layer. Spiral stairways, curved text, snakelike objects, whatever you can imagine is at your service.
Routing is another function performed by MacroForm. I remember how I loved to rout wood in high school woodshop, to force a fancy beveled pattern to conform to an edge. Bringing this same capacity to LightWave modeling is a thrilling option for 3D artists and animators.
Router files can also be loaded and saved, so applying your favorite cuts is doable for the long term. A "Snapshot Curve" is used as tire router pattern, and applied to the object. MacroForm also offers you the capability to wrap or form fit a 3D object to a 2D curve, leading to some exciting organic looking models.
Conclusions LightWave Modeler is not my favorite modeling program. Its strengths are often hidden by a lack of dedicated tutorials in the manual. For every user who has wanted to spend more creative time using the Modeler environment in LightWave and has been put off by the modules arcane and hard to comprehend tools, I recommend MacroForm.
The MacroForm manual is painstakingly designed and clearly illustrated to smooth out the bumps on the learning curve. The documentation, which comes in a hard binder that can be opened flat on the desktop, is as complete and qualitatively designed as is the software. Three disks of data accompany the manual. If tins program is supported by the Amiga community, further development on the Amiga LightWave utility will be possible. If your vision includes objects that move beyond spheres and checkered planes, get MacroForm. The time you spend learning its functions and applications will pay
you back a hundredfold.

• AC* Image Magic Apply a little "White Magic" to some of your
graphics and enjoy a world of difference.
_ by R. Shamtns Mortier I have no doubt that Nova Designs' ImageFX is the most full featured graphics transformation engine on the Amiga platform. With dozens of dedicated image enhancement and transformation tools, a preview function that shows you the results of various image features before you render them, and one of the easiest to understand interfaces that any image manipulation and FX program on any platform can boast of ImageFX is a solid utility for any graphics work.
The documentation is in one word "fat," meaning that although getting involved to the waist in the program is easy, tiiere is a lot of room for professional exploration of the tools left. However, this is not a review of ImageFX. This is a visual documentary on its effects as applied to an image, with captions that will allow you to achieve the same results.
My explorations represent only some of what is possible. If you are a dedicated Amiga user, needless to say that Nova's ImageFX should be in your library of exquisite tools. Look over the graphics and see if there are some effects you would like to experiment with, then go for it!
Although the settings referred to are to demonstrate how we achieved the look represented in the associated graphic, all of the effects shown here can be animated over time.
Distort Wave Distortion When we think of ripples we usually think of water, but there is no reason that you can’t apply ripple effects to other objects with computer graphics. Ripples are sometimes used in computer animation to imply distortions of time and space, as those imagined to be experienced by time travellers. Here we have applied a wave distortion to John’s head with the IFX oval brush.
(Amplitude = 27, Length = 19, Antialias and Stretch are on.)
This might be thought of as a cousin of wave distortion.
The image is swirled about a central point, warping it into an ovular shape. When applied to a full rectangular image, and the “outer radius" is set to cover the whole frame, it has the effect of pinching the image in the middle and placing it on a warped sheet. With some alterations, this could be used to wrap a graphic on a flag. (Outer R = 466, Inner R = 0, Angle = 23, Strength = 34, Blend = 0, Stretch and Anti-Alias are on.)
Warp Punch When either Pinch or Punch are applied to a more localized area (as has been done here to the area of John’s head), the image distorts only the features in that area, producing a caricature. More importantly, edges where the warped area meet the normalized elements are blended accurately. (Outer R = 41, Strength = 50.)
Polar Mosaic This combines both the Mosaic function and Wave Distort to effect the image in a unique way. Notice that less distortion occurs at the center of the effect than at the edges. (Outer R = 328, Tracks = 96, Slices = 159.)
Polar Blur This produces a circular smudge in the area to which It has been applied, much like an explosion. (Outer R = 206, length = 50.)
Warp Pinch This function is associated with Swirling with the difference that the frame of the graphic remains in place. Pinching draws the image inward around a cenler. (Outer R = 219. Inner R = 0, Strength = 50. Anti Alias and Stretch are on.)
Dream Have you ever seen the effect on the Letterman show that depicts David going into a dream state? If so, then you will be familiar with this IFX operator. You can apply it either vertically or horizontally. (Amount = 255, Start = 154, Phase = 11, Waves = 39, Wrap Around = On.)
Convolve Motion Blur This is a blurring function coupled with a direction indicator. What I have done in this example is to outline only the figure in Ihe graphic and then apply the operator. This gives me a clear background and a figure that looks like it has been captured in movement.
(Angle = 1, Length = 19 pixels.)
Transform Perspective Rotate This operator sets up a perspective controller that allows you to target the graphic to a 2D plane in 3D space. You can set the background in several ways. We have set it to remain as the graphic here, This operator when used as an animation tool is great for creating flying logo animations.
Effect Oil Paint This creates an oil painting look, great for hanging portraits on walls in a 3D environment. The larger the brush size, the more smeared the rendered image will be. (Brush Size = 2.)

Effects Apply Texture IFX comes with a library ot dozens of textures. When applied over an image or a section of it, you have the look ol a material surface that conforms to the texture shape. The texture applied to this graphic is called “Dragon Scales”.
Effects Straw This is one of my absolute favorite effects on any platform. The Image or a selection of it is made to iook like strands of straw. I have even used it on a subject’s hair alone, producing dynamic results. You can set the size from 1 to 50. This image shows the setting at 50.
Effects lens Flares and Radial Stars The radials look more flashy in the graphic. Both of these operators have literally dozens of sliders that can be adjusted to produce an infinite amount ot flare and radial star effects. It is easy to create everything from glints to stars with this tool.
Effects Crystallize You can set four parameters with this operator: Grid X and Y, Perturbance, and Sparkle. I used settings of 10, 10,5, and 55. There is also a Random number generator that sets a different seed number upon which the crystal patterns are built.
Effects Hockney Tiling This can look like confetti falling or a maddening puzzle, depending on what the settings are. You can alter the width hefght of the tiles, their placement, color, and luminance, as well as determining the background they are set against (I chose black for this graphic). Blending the tiles with the original image produces what might be perceived as a color bump map. (Width Height = 15, Hor Vert variance = 12 22, Hue value variance = 0 0.)
I hope you have enjoyed this look at IFX's transformation tools. In a future Amazing we will look at the IFX Cinemorph module as well. Enjoy!
See you in ROMulan space.

QioJUuoua amiga telecommunications Of MUCK, MUD, and MUSEs Traveling The World Wide Web Before we look at the internet features offered by the major on line services, we need to tidy up a few loose ends. Specifically MUD's and the Web.
Of MUDs, MUCKs, and MUSEs Muitiple-User Dimensions are a specialized form of the Internet Relay Chat we discussed last month. A MUD is a role playing game, where you interact in real time with other players.
All of this takes place in a virtual world that operates much like some of the early adventure games. Simple command's such as "go north," and "pick up weapon" control your characters' movements and actions within this setting. Because the other characters in the adventure are being controlled by other people, don't expect pure logic. Just like reality, some people may get pleasure from random acts of violence.
There are many variations of MUDs, and if you remember and enjoyed the original adventure games, you are sure to find some to your liking. Other names that games of this type are known by are MUCKs, and MUSEs.
The World Wide Web The World Wide Web is a hypertext-based system for nav igating parts of the internet. It is called the Web because conceptually it resembles a spider web. Every point on the web is connected with several other points, and from any point you can branch off in different directions.
There are two different ways to browse the WWW. One is graphical and requires specialized software installed on your home system. The other is through a text based system called Lynx.
As you use the Lynx system, which requires you to be using a terminal program that supports the VT-100 standards for cursor control, certain words in the screen of information will be highlighted. These are the links to other documents on the Web.
By placing your cursor on one of these links and hitting return, you will be switched automatically to the new document. Often this will be on a completely different system, perhaps even in another country.
Because of the free-association nature of hypertext, starting with a document on beer, for example, may lead you to ancient Egypt. This could lead you to archeology, which might land you in Germany, which could lead you to a history of Socialist regimes.
Tile graphical web browsers use the point-and-click interface familiar to all Amiga users. These specialized documents are known as Web Pages, and not only can contain text, but also images, sounds, or even animations.
By clicking on a highlighted word, or image, you may change to another page, or transfer software to your home computer to be displayed. These web browsers are a topic of their own, and we will have to save them for next month.
Services What follows is a thumbnail sketch of the internet offerings available on the commercial on line services.
Portal Portal offers most of the best features of the internet. Portal's services include the Usenet newsgroups, FTP, IRC, Telnet, Gopher, and Muds. Also available is the Lynx text-based Web browser as well as some special menu selections. These items give one-key access to certain internet databases, one of which is the Library of Congress Information System. Besides 15 different MUDs, Portal gives internet users access to Chess, Backgammon, and the Oriental game of Go.
Genie Genie also offers users Lynx, Gopher, Telnet, and FTP. You will need to he running a VT-100 compatible terminal program to make use of the internet sendees. While these internet services are available by following the Computing menu choices, your best bet will be to go to the Starship area at page 555, and choose menu item 19. This is the Internet Launch Pad, and again you need to be using a VT-100 terminal program rather than the Aladdin automated program.
At this menu item you will find a Lynx-based browser with links to all things Amiga on the internet, By using your cursor control keys, you can access the above functions, as well as all of the Amiga Usenet newsgroups, which at this writing (early December, 1995) numbered 66. Direct links are also provided to various Amiga WWW Home Pages, and on-line magazines such as Amiga Link and Amiga Report.
Delphi Delphi's internet selection is similar to Portal's and Genie's. In addition to FTP, Telnet, IRC, Usenet, and Gopher, several utilities are also offered. These utilities make possible tasks such as finding people when you don't know their e-mail address.
CompuServe CompuServe is a bit of an enigma. On tire one hand, it offers literally everything, including the PPP type of connection that is preferred for using a graphical WWW browser. On the other hand, if you followed the menu prompts to the internet section, you would be told only Windows, MS-Dos, and Macintosh users are able to access the internet through CompuServe.
If you access the FileFinder in the Amiga section, and search the keyword "internet," you will find the solution. Along with numerous text files detailing what to do in order to use CompuServe as a gateway between your Amiga and the internet, are all of the software programs you will need.
More Info If you would like some more information about any of these services, you can call the following numbers.
CompuServe 800-848-8199 Delphi 800-695-4005 Genie 800-638-9636 Portal 800-433-6444 Updates In the November On Line, I mentioned that the total number of Usenet newsgroups was "more than
5000. " It seems I was more right than I knew. Harv Laser, head
moderator svsop of the Amiga Zone on Portal, advised ine
that the total number of newsgroups is now 18,000.
Also in the November column, I printed a BBS listing for A.l.M.A. World BBS, in San Bernardino, CA. I have since been advised that the BBS is no longer at the phone number listed.
Please remove this number from your lists. My apologies to the new owners of that number.

R. Shamms Mortier Physics Lab in Mechanics The Amiga is an
exquisite educational interface and Physics Lab is an example
of what an interactive program for the classroom should
encompass.
One of the things good oi' Commodore never did was to take the necessary steps to bring Amiga technology to the classroom. Schools that did purchase Amigas based on their own research were ecstatic if they were involved with video editing or computer graphics, but, because of Commodore's lack of developer support, interactive educational modules for other academic pursuits were seldom promoted when they were developed.
The Amiga remains to this day an exquisite educational interface because of its extensive built-in multimedia interfacing. Those of us that write for and design Amazing Computing feel a responsibility to the general reader and to the Amiga educational community to keep you informed when educational software packages for the classroom are released. Physics Lab is an example of what an interactive Owl Software's Physics Lab is loaded with learning tools, from interactive formulas to graphics and animations.
Program for the classroom should encompass, and it sets the pace for interactive learning design.
Physics Lab 1 wish this software was around and available when 1 was studying physics. I can feel the cold sweat starting to form on my back, the anxious expectation of tomorrow's test, the surety that I won't remember all of the formulas I'll need even though I crammed them in my brain for hours. Remembrances of high school and college physics classes recall volumes of formulas applied to arcane problems. Then again, I'm old enough to have missed out on the electronic aids available to the learner today.
CAL (computer assisted learning) was attempted in the '60's, but failed because the technology just was not up to it. Its resurgence in the '80's and its wide use today is tied directly to the extent and attractiveness of the technological advances in computing, especially memory, color resolution and speed.
Owl Software's Physics Lab takes advantage of all that the Amiga can offer as an interactive multimedia engine, its graphics capabilities and speed. Using theCanDo software (sadly, no longer in production), Lori Vinciguerra (Owl's chief programmer) designed an interface for Physics Lab that enhances learning by inviting exploration and experimentation. At each segment of the learning process, steps are taken to address the needed memorization of formulas by showing how they apply to laboratory experiments.
Procedures Physics lab opens up with what appears to be a laboratory notebook.
You enter your name on the cover, allowing it to become a saved record of your experiments for any return visits.
The software is ready-made for groups studying the same topic. There is even a bibliographical reference of suitable and commonly used physics texts so that the software can easily he integrated into targeted academic pursuits.
There are two Physics lab modules (Mechanics 1 and II), each containing different groups of experiments.
Different experiments involve various graphics enhancements, animations and sounds, all contained in the package. There are three learning choices for each topic: beginning, intermediate and advanced. Physics Lab in Mechanics 1 contains Kinemat- VisionSoft

After signing in on your lab notebook, you can open the pages until you find a topic and learning level appropriate for your period of study.
Under the notebook pages are controls and active buttons that are modeled loosely after VCR controls, but with more options.
You can press the formula button and spend some time working through and learning the various formulas connected with the chosen experimental topic, or you can select the ruler to get details on various measurement options. A button with a face on it will take you to the historical data section where you can learn about the scientists associated with physics in general, and your topic in particular.
A button with a question mark represents access to the help menu.
Here you can receive help on tire Circle 120 on Reader Service card.
General and reference topics associated with your area of learning as well as refreshers on things like Newton's Laws of Motion.
You can also get help on the basics at any point, like trigonometry, math symbols, scientific notation, and vectors. At each step along tire way, every opportunity is taken to assist you in the learning process with experiments, working out formulas, and associated content in textual, numeric, and visual environments.
Who needs this software?
The apparent answer is anyone who is involved in learning physics in or out of the classroom. If you are a plain lover of science and math, even if you arc not in a formal school setting, get a copy of this software now.
Anyone involved in the home schooling movement who uses an Amiga should also jump on the bandwagon.
1 am even going to go farther and suggest that every graphics and animation user, and most certainly every developer, should add this software to their library. Why?
Because the algorithms that underlie all animation programs are built upon the exact mathematical formulas and their understanding that this software walks you through. Physics and math are the soul of the foundation upon which fancy animation interfaces are constructed, Multimedia programmers engaged in the development of learning modules will also benefit from just studying how a master programmer has configured a learning module that addresses whatCAL has always promised, an enhanced interactive learning experience that works.

By R. Shamms Mortier This is the fourth in an ongoing series of articles spread over the last seven years. In the previous articles, I have shown you my secret den, my lair, my cave of digital possibilities...my Amiga-centric studio as it has grown in a step-by-step fashion. I have even confessed to you my wishes and dreams and how I saw my studio expanding into the future.
I have no patience, by the way, for folks totally addicted to a computer platform at the expense of their own creative potential, Artists should use whatever creative tools are available.
This article is similar to those of the past, with one exception, my studio is no longer exclusively Amiga based. I have had to include other platforms because of my vocation as a technical writer, electronic artist and animator. ESCOM just didn't arrive soon enough for me to pul off that decision, though my present Amigas are as useful to me as they ever were, perhaps even more.
In times past, as an Amiga-only user, 1 could rant about the advantages of the Amiga over other systems all I wanted to. It was as if I were a member of a secret club and had the privilege to shout whatever invectives conjured up, even if my pride was based in ignorance of the competition. Not that I had no knowledge of MACs or Pcs. 1 used both (mostly Pcs) over a ten year period at work. But until something is at your elbow, you never really know it. Now a PowerMAC and a Pentium sit nestled in between my four networked Amigas, and I have come to know, love, and hate in a fashion that only
familiarity can breed.
I wanted to pen this article for several reasons. One was certainly to show you what a fine creative mess you can get into, even though I have no regrets for my digital involvements.
Secondly, I wanted to inform you how you might handshake between and among applications and platforms, giving you more options as an electronic artist and animator. I have no patience, by the way, for folks totally addicted to a computer platform at the expense of their own creative potential. Artists should use whatever creative tools are available.
The Amiga was and is an important creative platform because of its tools and not because of any infatuation with its name.
Thirdly (a point that should make Amiga-centric readers drool with glee), 1 wanted to relate my firsthand comparisons between the Amiga and the way it operates versus the MAC and the PC, and why and how I have rediscovered a new respect and admiration for the Amiga as a creative tool in the process.
Finally, 1 wanted to suggest some thoughts on the directions that 1 feel are important for Amiga Technologies to move as tire Amiga comes back on line.
First, allow me to take you on a short tour of my studio.
The Cave I spend about seventy to eighty hours a week in my creative cave, my studio. It is housed in an upstairs room that measures about 12' x 16’, with a small attached closet used for storage. I have filled the space horizontally and vertically with all of the electronic and digital necessities that 1 could and could not afford.
My work, in addition to writing, consists of both DTP and DTV enterprises. I have worked for numerous clients, including the regional ABC affiliate. As far as non-video work goes, I serve as a desktop publishing service for the local area. In addition to that, as a computer graphic artist and gallery artist, I am developing a showing of 22 3' x 4' prints due for exhibition in the Spring. At the time this article is being written, 10 of the 22 are finished.
Each of the systems I use is dedicated to a specific purpose, and is either or all DTV, DTP, and electronic music configured. Each system is integral to the whole.
The Four Amigas I suppose that 1 could name them as the four musketeers, or the four archangels, but in reality they are called simply SI, S2, S3 and S4. There are two 2000s, one 3000T, and a 4000. As far as the architecture is concerned, I feel that the A2000 can't be beat as far as easily configurable inner works, the 3000T is a masterful concept that includes built in SCSI and support for a multiscan monitor, and the A4000 was the poorest designed system Commodore ever manufactured as far as its box.
Spend about seventy to eighty hours o week in my creative cave, my studio, Figure 1. My four networked AMIGAs: A. The A2000 with the "Video Siot Box” on the right. An external 4X CD-ROM drive sits undernealh. B. The A 4000 in a Toaster Oven case. Notice the switch boxes attached with Velcro at the side. The Zip drive on the top is for the PowerMAC. C. A multiscan monitor sits on top of the A 3000T, one of the best designed Amiga consoles built. D. The A 2000 I use as a MIDI music studio, with a GVP IV24 box on the side. E. Shows the fold-out mouse pad holder built from pine and attached with a
large hinge. F. A BOSS 16 channel stereo mixer used for MIDI recording and playback. G. A Casio keyboard used to input music into the system.
There was no room in the A4000 box, and over-heating was is common, leading to all kinds of nightmares. I threw out the original A4000 case and installed the guts in an Ambitious Technologies Tower case, giving me more room for expansion boards (two more slots) and a more powerful and dependable power supply. The A4000 came as a great soul in a useless bodv.
Oh, before I forget, I also have two old AlOOOs tucked away. 1 couldn't stand the thought of throwing them away, though their use and health is questionable at this point.
All of the Amigas are connected with ASDG (now AVID) "Rover-net" boards and thin ethernet cables. I use ENLAN-DFS as the software part of the LAN (from InterWorks). ENLAN-DFS is a miracle with capabilities unmatched on any platform. Just try and connect Pcs or MACs in as easy and deep a fashion, and you will hug your old Amiga. I can read write the RAM disk on any connected Amigas, dip into any media on the system, and print from any of the four. Now let me spend a few moments telling you about each of the four Amigas.
SI is the eldest. It has the NewTek Toaster installed as well as a Progressive peripherals 33MHz '040 board with 40MB of RAM. Hard drive space is about two gigs. Connected at the back is a Digital Creation's (now PLAY, Inc.) Video Slot Box. Connected to the slot box, so that I can switch among them, is the Toaster, a DCTV box, and an OpalVision card remember them?).
Four floppy drives complete this system.
I use it for video animation playback, Toaster effects, and most of the DTP laser printer (an HP iascrjet III) work that I do. I would like to replace my laser printer in tine future with one of the 600 dpi and higher models, but that may be a few years away.
Here's how my dream goes, i'm in a room with Bill Gates. He's chained to a table that has an MS-DOS Windows '95 system on it.,. Figure 2. Other parts of my setup: H. A Polaroid FreezeFrame slide camera. With this you can dump graphics from an Amiga directly to 35mm slides. I. A 75MHz Pentium. J. Storage cases gleaned from thrift stores. K. A monitor from a C-64 used as a Toaster monitor, and the Primera Pro color printer. L A Sanyo S-VHS single-frame recorder. M. Other video decks, a SONY VHS and a SONY Betacam. N. An Epson 600 dpi scanner tucked under a desk. O. A great SONY 17" multiscan
monitor connected to an Amiga 4000, a PowerMAC, and a Pentium via a switchbox. P. A 100MHz PowerMAC, S2 is the Amiga 4000, It has 32MB of RAM, 16 of which has been added on a DKB memory expansion board. It houses a MacroSystems 24-bit Retina board and an Emplant unit from Utilities Unlimited. 1 should thank Utilities Unlimited for hipping me to the MAC as far as painting software is concerned, so much so that I added a real PowerMAC to the system and don't use the slower Emplant anymore. I would still recommend it for Amiga users who want to have MAC capability at a ridiculously low price. I
bought the Windows chip for the Emplant, and 1 don't recommend it at all. The A4000 is one of three computers attached to a 17" high quality SONY monitor via a small ABCD switchbox. I have also attached a joyport switchbox to the 4000 for switching between dongles when needed. Everything is attached with Velcro strips which I highly recommend for this purpose. The A4000 has a stand-alone LightWave unit. T-Net (ToasterNet), also from InterWorks, is used to connect all LightWave equipped Amigas as a rendering farm.
S3 is an Amiga 3000T (for "Tower"). These units were being clearanced at a ridiculously low price some years back. I have never been sorry I purchased one. This has 44MB of RAM (it should be 48, but 4MB of the original RAM failed and I've never done anything about it). It has a stand-alone LightWave and a Picasso 24-bit board.
Attached is a Bernoulli 150MB external replaceable media drive, and inside is about 11 2 gigs of hard drive space. It has two high density floppies, and is connected to an older NEC Multiscan monitor. This is one unit that 1 use to record directly to S-VHS utilizing a SANYO recording deck. I also use it for fax modem work in cooperation with the AMIGA REPLACEMENT & UPGRADE CHIPS (rectory New) '.3 ROM CVS - ....

GPFax software from GPSoftware in Australia. Most of my addendum LightWave object files are stored on this system. Though it lias an '030 processor, it is fast enough for most of my needs.
S4 is a vintage Amiga 2000 that i use only for MIDI work and recording, it has about 100Mb of sound samples stored on it, and includes every Amiga music program around for composing and playback. It is connected to an external Roland Sound Canvass and a Midia Musicbox, and internally addresses a One-Stop-Music-Shop from Blue Ribbon Soundworks. It has a four MIDI-out card from the same company, allowing me to address 48 MIDI channels in unison if I want to, though that's usually too thick. It also sports a MacroSvstems' Toccata for 16-bit Plug-and-play or shrug-and-pray, it's all the same to
me. Windows '95 is ten miles above Windows 3.1, and ten miles below the Amiga operating system.
Sampling. This system also is equipped with a GVP IV24 24-hit card. This allows me to edit picture-in-picture on the screen with Visual Inspirations' DST software, so that I can place sound effects on video.
Non-Amigas As 1 stated at the start, my studio is equipped with two non-Amiga systems, a 75MHz Pentium and a 100MHz PowerMAC. I use both to reference non- Amiga software that 1 write about, as well as running graphics and sound applications on each. In the near future, I will join both of these systems to the Amiga network, so that everything will be able to read write to everything else.
Each of these systems has a 100MB Zip Drive. Zip media costs only $ 12.00 per
100. MB, and these drives are honeys. 1 would like to connect a
Zip drive to one of the Amigas, but Iomega doesn't make any
Amiga interfacing hardware (look for a future article in
Amazing for an Amiga connection with these drives).
Both of these systems are useful, and they both address some awesome software, but... Pentium: A Dream of Terror Here's how my dream goes. I'm in a room with Bill Gates. He’s chained to a table that has an MS-DOS Windows '95 system on it, and next to him on the table and spread all over the floor are a bunch of peripherals, hard drives, printers, modems, and more. He asks if he might be excused to journey to the men's room.
I say "sure. Bill. But first you have to connect these plug-and-play peripherals to the system and get them working. He breaks out in a sweat and fumbles with the hardware. 1 leave the room. He screams... Plug-and-play or shrug-and-pray, it's all the same to me. Windows '95 is ten miles above Windows 3.1, and ten miles below the Amiga operating system.
To be sure, it has some nice features, but connecting third party hardware is not one of them. Firstly, if you want to connect a SCSI device (which is a snap on an Amiga) you have to have the politically correct plug-and-play SCSI adapter card. 1 bought an ADAPTER, the only card made for "plug-and-play" connectivity so far. After three weeks on the phone with a very kind ADAPTER techie, I was able to get my CD-ROM drive recognized by the system, and even my external hard drive finally works, The Zip drive, however, sits mute, refusing to give up its identity to the system. ADAPTER has
suggested a work-around which 1 will try when I get time, hut this sure isn't any kind of "plug-and-play" that 1 am familiar with.
The Pentium has 32MB of RAVI, enough to run minutes-long animations on any Amiga at full overscan and 30 fps, but on the Pentium it's barely enough to run a minute long animation that is only a quarter screen in size at about 12 fps.
More acceleration (money) and more RAM (more money) would be needed to bring it up to a minimum of professional video use. The system is very useful.
However, for producing print graphics, and so I have connected it to a Primera Pro color printer. The Amiga lacks the higher scan rate and the ability to address the large screen sizes that are possible with the Pentium. By the way, about 8MB of RAVI is needed to feed the operating system overhead on the Pentium, compared with the Amiga which requires only about 512k.
"Multitasking" is a word touted and hyped by MicroSoft as the sole property of Windows '95, even though it's been possible with the MAC for a long time and was always one of the strongest features of the Amiga since its inception. Sure, you can multitask with non-Amiga systems, but running more than one intensive program with less than about 32MB of memory (and more in most situations) is a disaster waiting to happen.
The PowerMAC Amiga users should feel more or less at home on a MAC. After all, the Amiga interface owes its existence to the original Apple interfaces, it is just that the Amiga makes more intuitive use of the design. As for Windows '95, MAC users are furious about the way that MicroSoft has copied the MAC interface and Windows '95 does not optimize most of the resultant interactions at all.
My PowerMAC was purchased from Power Computing in Texas at about $ 1000.00 less than the comparable Apple system. It's a gem for DTP and graphics processing, but suffers equally as does the Pentium when it comes to video. The new dual PowerPC processors due in the near future and the coming P6 chips should address much of that, but there are few software bundles as ready made for video as there are on the Amiga (though they're getting better).
The Apple disk drive is still a mystery to me. Li is electronic, and to get a disk out, you have to literally "throw it in the trash". This goes against my being and experience. (The Pentium on the other hand has a dumb disk drive. The system doesn't recognize that a disk has been inserted until you tell it to look for it.) An anomaly with the operating system is that when shutting down, my PowerMAC asks me to "insert the hard drive", so I have to shut it down Windows™ Screen A It's finally here!

Home page: http: www.io.org ~leaend I______1 J Figure 3. Where’s Waldo? It's not uncommon to find your studio buried in shelves of documentation, i've taken every available space to build storage facilities for the papers that accompany the programs, not to mention the old material I’ve stuffed into moisture proof containers and stored in the basement through the years.
Manually. When I called about this, I was told that this is just an unknown bug in the operating system. Has any Amiga user ever experienced a flag that asks for the internal hard drive to be inserted before turning the computer off, and The MAC has its compatibility problems nested in what are called "extensions", system code that comes with each piece of application software.
Would an Amiga user just blithely shrug it off as a "bug in the operating system"?
Mr. Morlier's problem ivith the Imni drive request is not a problem with the standard Mac operating system and is possibly only confined Jo Power Computing Mac clones. Ed.
38 A MA ZING COMP UTING Standards MS DOS machines are notorious for lacking development standards, Windows '95 software wili not work on a non-W'95 system. When you upgraded your Amiga to 2.x or 3.0, did you have to throw away all of your previous software? Did the upgrades cost you dearly? 1 doubt it. People are developing software for W'95 that actually interferes with other W'95 software, and their answer when you complain is "it's the other guy's fault... tough luck". How long would an Amiga person stand for that? Corel 6, which was made for W'95 only, did not install (would not) on my
Pentium from a CD-ROM drive because of incompatibility problems that MicroSoft knew about with NEC CD- ROM drives. Did they bother to tell Corel, one of their major developers? No.
Bv the way, even in the dark days of Commodore, 1 never experienced the hubris and arrogance of a company as much as I have in trying to get technical help from MicroSoft, especially after the release of Windows '95.
Die MAC has its compatibility problems nested in what are called "extensions", system code that conies with each piece of application software.
Sometimes one party's extension will interfere with another party's software, and it will scramble it up while it's being installed. Tracking extension problems down is a pain, and can lead to a messed up hard drive as well. Crashes on both the MAC and the Pentium are frequent.
Unlike the Amiga, which usually offers a look-up guru flag, there is no warning when these other systems crash and burn. They just say good-bye, and either shut down or crash the program. Much of this is due to memory (not enough RAM), bul couldn't they be kinder when they say good-bye?
The latest trendy activity for Windows is to ask the user to shut down the computer, lending to a wait while applications are deftly redressed and turned off, and then the screen says "it's safe to shut down your computer", at which point you throw the switch.
Shutting down the system in the wrong order has a tendency to completely jumble the screen palette the next startup. The MAC, for reasons due to its operating system, has had this in place since about the start. I have no idea if Windows '95 emulates this behavior just because it's familiar to MAC people who are switching over or not. 1 do know that with the Amiga, you just shut it down.
Unless the hard drive is in physical operation during a shut down, no harm comes to the system, Now, after ail of my snide remarks, I'll bet you are thinking that I have nothing but plaudits for the Amiga, and nothing but slicing remarks for the other systems. You are dead wrong. The Amiga lacks a lot in several areas, and without some non- Commodore thinking and planning at ESCOM, there will be no light in the tunnel ahead.
The Amiga Now, after all of my snide remarks, i'll bet you are thinking that F have nothing but plaudits for the Amiga, and nothing but slicing remarks for the other systems. You are dead wrong. The Amiga lacks a lot in several areas, and without some non-Commodore thinking and planning at ESCOM, there will be no light in the tunnel ahead, It will take more than refurbished 4000's to get the Amiga back in play. For that reason, and because I would love to see the Amiga play a larger role in the future of creative digital enterprises, allow me to tell you what I think is very good and right
about the other systems 1 mentioned.
The Pentium The Pentium is fast and getting faster. Good 24-bit cards sell for about 1 3 the cost of comparable Amiga hardware. There is no contest when it comes to the variety and quantity of software availability, with about ten times more MS DOS software available than there is for the MAC, and about a hundred times more than there is for the Amiga. Some of the newer packages are offering video interactivity and multimedia usage that is at least as good as anything on the Amiga. Many of the best Amiga packages have either been ported to the MS DOS environment, or are on their way.
MS DOS and associated Windows environments are the number one standards in the industry, like it or not.
The thoughts and expressions In Mr. Mortier are Ids own and not necessarily those of Amazing Computing or its staff. However, his thoughts have been expressed by a variety of Amiga users and we are grateful to Mr. Mortier for expressing them in the above manner. Ed.
The MAC MicroSoft and Intel would like you to think that the MAC is on its way out, but don't bet on it. With the coming Spring '96 release of the Copeland operating system upgrade and enhancements to the PowerPC Buss, the MAC PowerMAC is going to be around for a long time, Other coming PowerPC systems that will take MAC cloning to new heights, like the BeBox dual PowerPC platform, will find a market that will challenge the Pentiums and their ilk on their own territory, by incorporating MS DOS applications and compatibility instead of trying to fight it.
Many of the top graphics and animation programs now on the Pentium will be ported to the PowerMAC environment just to cover the bases (LightWave, an Amiga original that is now a PC native application, has a PowerPC application in final development). The MAC PowerMAC is firmly entrenched in design businesses and is deeply established in music recording studios as the preferred platform.
MicroSoft's hype will not shake it loose at any time in the near future.
The next Amiga: things it had better do!
The next Amiga absolutely has to incorporate MS DOS as an optional pathway so that PC applications can run on it with no effort. This should not be a software fix (like "PC Task") or even an add-on (like an Emplant solution), but a built-in ready to rock and roll integrated part of the system. ESCOM has announced plans to build the next Amigas with PowerPC technology, which should allow them to rim both PowerPC and PC applications right off the assembly line. I hope so.
The next Amigas have to be priced to sell. Competitive pricing will demand that the fantasized Amiga 5000, should there be one, has to be offered for about $ 2500.00 and maybe less. It should come with a higher scan rate to drive better monitors, 24-bit built in graphics, a multimedia card (video and S-Video in and out), and perhaps even a non-linear editing system. Ft has to be Internet plug- and-go, and it wouldn't hurt to have a built in 28,8 modem as an internal option. A 4X CD-ROM is a must, and not an option, with a 4X CD-R for a few pennies more. And most of all, even with ail of these
ideas being addressed, it has to be marketed in the real world by creative and conscious beings, not by arrogant managers. At that point, we will not have to mumble the word "Amiga" under our breath when we answer the question "what platform do you use to do creative work?". We have a lot of work to do.

CONSUIMW DRIVES & TITLES CD ROM Simple Stat Graph With the author's stated commitment to continued program development, SSG promises to become the Amiga statistics package, the one I anticipated years ago.
By Barlow Soper, Ph.D. Graphics and video excite while statistics often strike terror. Yet, statistics delight those who understand that they provide a ready means of learning about the world. As a behavioral scientist, it was with exhilaration that 1 bought my first Amiga in 1987 anticipating doing desktop data-analyses between Deluxe Paint animations. Wrong. Searching fruitlessly for Amiga statistics software, my initial enthusiasm quickly cooled.
After a time, 1 stumbled upon a couple of shareware analysis programs but found them extremely limited, needlessly complex, or hopelessly bug- ridden. 1 lusted after the dozen or so professional packages reviewed in the MS-DOS press. But I did not admire their prices, some being nearly a thousand dollars. Next came what looked to be essentially one-person developed, semi-commercial, Amiga products. One of the packages was powerful and the support excellent, but it was complicated, clunky, and difficult to use not being significantly Amigatized.
Though 1 could now do statistics on my Amiga, the process was neither easy nor fun. Promised commercial packages never materialized. So, I clunked along - year after year.
Finally, I spotted an announcement in Amazing Computing for Simple Stat Graph (SSG) by Dr, Douglas Stockman.
At a reasonable price of $ 79.951 decided I had little to lose. What a pleasant surprise! With the author's stated commitment to continued program development, SSG promises to become the Amiga statistics package, the one I anticipated years ago. Though labeled an entry-level program, it must not be inferred that SSG is feature poor or lacking quality. It is only somewhat limited in breath and depth of analyses offered.
SSG ships with a superb 200 page manual, 3 disks which provide both 68000 and floating point processor versions, ten shareware postscript fonts, and a couple ancillary utilities. Detailed instructions are provided to run SSG from floppies but, of course, it is meant to be installed on a hard-disk. The Commodore installer is used and worked perfectly. However, Dr. Stockman's attention to detail is evident here in that the manual lists where each of the many support files should be placed for the software to work correctly, in case of difficulty. The program requires Workbench 2.04 or higher and
at least 3 or 4 MB of ram. Some features are not available with less and file size is limited by memory, as well.
SSG is comprised of three components each with a dedicated window): a comprehensive editor for data entry and manipulation, statistics routines for analyses, and graphing capabilities for presentation of results. The documentation gives detailed but straightforward explanations of each of these three aspects of the program, providing many screenshots, examples, and an in-depth tutorial which reallv shows off what can be done through data manipulation. Online help is provided via AmigaGuide and the manual has a real index, not a token list of a few key words. The two resizable output

The output buffer can be printed, saved, or cleared periodically in hardware environments where rain may be limited.
Keyboard shortcuts are provided and the M-key, in conjunction with the left Amiga-key, brings forward the Workbench.
The editor provides a spreadsheetlike interface for data entry which is intuitive to use. The mouse or a requestor can be employed to quickly select and highlight which data points are to be the The editor also includes a variety of tools to copy, cut, paste, merge, convert, and sort data before getting into the business of analysis. These are powerful tools, well documented, and demonstrated in the manual. One drawback, which the author says will be addressed in the next version, is the need that data points be contiguous in the editor for them to be highlighted and analyzed.
Though rather inconvenient, the copy tool offers a fairly simple means to work around this limitation. The exact method AMIGA PRODUCTS prices starling tit - availability varies A500 5169 A600 $ 239 A1000 S 99 A1200 $ 399 A2000 $ 299 A3000 $ 599 A4000 $ 1799 AMIGA A520 ics efSIU 2 $ 3(1

Focus of manipulation, analyses, or graphing. If the user finds a requested statistical procedure produces a "cannot divide by zero" notice, it is certain that no entered data were highlighted. Oops; no problem. Simply click off the requester, highlight data, and go again.
Voila, results!
Data can be entered directly from the keyboard into the editor or from a comma, tab, or space delimited ASCII file with ease. The latter is helpful if one wishes to enter data by rows instead of columns, though the former can be accomplished indirectly with a simple transposition within SSG itself. This is important because it is often easier to enter all data from a single subject or respondent file or questionnaire at one time, across variables (columns), instead of entering all persons' responses for one variable, followed by the next variable, etc. Unlike other statistics programs, it is
not necessary to know the number of rows or columns when loading a data file, nor are any conversion processes required, SSG just loads the data and displays it in the editor, awaiting manipulation, analyses, and display. For anyone who has fought conversion programs, this capability may make SSG worth the price of admission.
Is intuitive but explained in the manual, nevertheless.
Statistical analyses can be performed interactively on a given data set or by batch file when repetitive work is required. Both processes are explained in clear detail. The range of statistical procedures is perhaps the most limited part of the program, even though a nice set of entry-level techniques is provided.
Descriptive stats, several t-tests, one-way ANOVA, Pearson's correlation, four nonparametric tests, chi square, 2- variable crosstab, cutoff tally, linear regression, and frequency analyses are included, as are significance levels where necessary. Later versions are intended to expand this listing. For instance, multiway ANOVA is noted in the manual as not vet implemented, but is ghosted in the stats menu, supporting the author's stated upgrade intentions. Further expansion, especially post-hoc tests and multivariate techniques such as principle- component analysis with rotations,
discriminate analysis, etc. would go a long way toward making SSG a truly full-featured program and the premier, affordable, Amiga data-analvsis package.
Regarding presentation of results, the user has the choice of employing either preferences or postscript printers.

January 1996 43 It is for use with the latter that the type-1 fonts are included. I had immediate success producing publication quality graphs with my HP LaserJet III. However, I did not have a postscript printer or interpreter installed to check postscript functioning. Yet, given that all other aspects of the program performed exactly as presented, I expect postscript printing would, as well. Many of the nice graphs in the manual and on the cover were produced with SSC postscript output. Finally, graphic results can be saved in a variety of formats including: SSG's own, EPS, IFF, DXF, and
HP-GL 2.
Unfortunately, DR2D is not yet supported.
The possible graphing types entail an assortment of pie charts, a number of line and bar charts, along with needle, step, histogram, and text charts. Error bars are available where appropriate and the user is given considerable control over all aspects of graph layout and printing, via requesters. It is quick and easy to experiment with different types of charts and attributes in order to obtain precisely the presentation one desires.
It should be understood that SSG does not supply the purchaser with a detailed statistics text or training, it assumes a working knowledge of what procedures to do and when to do them as well as the interpretation and meaning of results. But even here users are not left completely on their own since a brief description of each procedure is presented, along with a short bibliography of texts appropriate to teach the basics or refresh latent memories.
Finally, in any program, no matter how well done, there is always room for further development. The anticipated enhancements noted in the manual will remedy most of this reviewer's concerns or desired missing features. However, It is gratifying to find such effort expended on a quality product for so limited a market segment.
Some other additions would be appreciated beyond those already suggested.

SSG Cjitor BOGUS CHART For example, it is not yet possible to automatically create a multivariate correlation matrix, And, another suggestion is for more screen resolution options. Several are available for the output windows, but additional ones, such as 800 x 600 pixels, commonly used on 24-bit display enhanced systems, are not currently supported. But these are really being pretty small items, especially considering this is still version l .0 of the software.

- 0.936371 A v In the manual it states that because SSG is the
labor of a single individual who must work at another job for a
living, it's creator cannot offer the level of customer support
expected of commercial programs (e.g. telephone support). Dr,
Stockman goes so far as to offer a refund to anyone who
purchased directly from him if this is a problem.
However, I found that any question I had was promptly answered by post and i suspect the response would have been quicker were I available on-line.
Also, a program revision disk (vers.
1. 0a) arrived unsolicited, within a couple of weeks of the
original package. Some larger commercial concerns I have dealt
with are not as responsive.
Dr. Stockman writes in the manual that he spent three years working on SSG and it shows in all aspects of the package. It is gratifying to find such effort expended on a quality product for so limited a market segment. I would recommend that anyone who has need of an easy to use data manipulation, analysis, and presentation package, check out Simple Stat Graph and support the author's work.
