The other new Amiga unveiied was the A4000T, a tower version of the 68040 machine. it has a couple of enhancements over the Desktop version such as a SCS!-!! interface and higher capacity hard drives. Commodore aiso confirmed a report in iast month's Amiga Computing that a digits! signa! processor (DSP) upgrade wiü be available later this year for their A3000 and A4000 sériés. The chip is under development by the American giant AT&T, and the board wiü have bmit-in stereo Codée to provide digitising support for the chip. Fuüy muiti-tasking, in addition to its own two megabytes of memory wiü manipuiate the Amiga's main chip and fast RAM. ft wiü run DCOS, an operating system Ücensed from AT&T, and feature microphone in out for mixing. Eventuaüy the firm wiü add Asps to aü Amigas, and have pians for Amiga speech récognition. Detaiis of completely redesigned Amiga graphics were also revealed, less than six months since the munch of the AGA set. Two sets are under development, one for high end use and the other for iow-end. it is ciaimed they wiü be compatible with each other and earlier graphics. According to the manufacturer, the iow-end chips have a resolution of 800 x 600 pixeis, opératé at 72Hz, include!6Mb of chip RAM and have an extended cotour mode. The other version which is further into development wiü have four custom chips, a true cotour resolution of 1,000 x 1,000 pixels and multiple blitter support. CD Amiga denied A CD-BASED system using the latest Amiga graphics wiii beiaunchedby Commodore before Christmas. it has been ciaimed.

ANTIC COMPUTER SYSTEMS 56 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9RG Tel: 071-278 7602 Fax: 071-837 9024 NEW SB Commodore take Amiga Computing exclusively revealed details of a machine with very similar specifications in January's issue.
Kelly Sumner has, however. Confirmed that there will be a new machine later this year which has the potential of lifting Amiga sales higher than last year's record.
There are fewer than 30,000 CDTVs in the UK and Sumner recently said that Commodore got three basics wrong with the machine; price, specification and support.
"I think CDTV’s time has been and gone.’ he said.
IN a surprise move Kelly Sumner has quit Commodore after spending just ten successful months in the number one UK seat. Two senior executives are taking over in his place as joint general managers.
Sumner took control last summer in his thirteenth year at the company, and since then sales have soared to record levels and a new generation of Amigas has been introduced.
His move takes him to Gametek, a large US-based games company, where he is tasked with opening a UK office and setting up distribution across Europe.
The software house supports a range of consoles and computers including the Amiga, and has plans to move into CD technology.
David Pleasance rejoins Commodore, after spending time working in the US and Greece, as general manager for sales and marketing.
Former finance director Colin Proudfoot heads operations and finance.
“Both general managers are well known to the customer base and their joint roles should significantly enhance the strength of our UK operations,” said a Commodore spokesman.
Kelly Sumner quits THE giant CeBIT technology show held in Germany was the launch pad for two new Amiga platforms and announcements on sound and graphics improvements for the range.
Commodore used the exhibition to unveil the 68030-based version of the top-end computer, which has been expected since the release of the A4QGQ 040, Externally, the A4000 030 looks identical to its older brother, but lift its lid and there are a couple of extra changes to be discovered.
They include slightly less memory, with this machine coming with four megabytes instead of the A4000 040's six, and the maths co-processor is optional.
For a model fitted with an 80 megabyte hard drive it will sell in Britain for 6999 including VAT, and a version with a 120Mb drive will cost an extra £100.
The other new' Amiga unveiled was the A4000T, a tower version of the 68040 machine.
It has a couple of enhancements over the Desktop version such as a SCSI-11 interface and higher capacity hard drives.
Commodore also confirmed a report in Iasi month's Amiga Computing that a digital signal processor (DSP) upgrade will be available later this year for their A3000 and A4000 series.
The chip is under development by the American giant AT&T, and the board will have built-in stereo Codec to provide digitising support for the chip.
Fully multi-tasking, in addition to its own two megabytes of memory will manipulate the Amiga's main chip and fast RAM.
It will run DC05, an operating system licensed from AT&T, and feature microphone in out for mixing.
Eventually the firm will add DSPs to all Amigas, and have plans for Amiga speech recognition.
Details of completely redesigned Amiga graphics were also revealed, less than sue months since the launch of the AGA set.
Tower trail John Butters reports from Hanover Two sets are under development, one for high end use and the other for low-end. It is claimed they will be compatible with each other and earlier graphics. According to the manufacturer, the low- end chips have a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, operate at 72Hz, include 16Mb of chip RAM and have an extended colour mode.
The other version - which is further into development - will have four custom chips, a true colour resolution of 1,000 x 1,000 pixels and multiple blitter support.
A CD-BASED system using the latest Amiga graphics will be launched by Commodore before Christmas, it has been claimed.
According to trade newspa* per Computer Trade Weekly, software developers around the world have already been given full details of the machine's specifications.

Choose your own drive DEALERS will soon be able to add hard drives to suit individual A60Q buyers' needs following Commodore's decision to stop stocking A600HDS.
At the moment the firm is selling hard disk versions of the machine in their £399 Epic pack, but they now believe it is better for each customer to buy a drive that matches personal requirements.
Kelly Sumner has said that hard drive machines bring confusion, with some people wanting a 40Mb version, whereas others need 80Mb or 120Mb.
Recently some distributors became Commodore-approved A1200 hard drive fitters, and many suppliers are now offering models with a Wang on-site service warranty, Meanwhile, the number of A600 packs will also be reduced later this year, when the firm will have just one offering. The company is choosing between a standalone model or bundle.
A decision to pack the A1200 with software has already been taken. Commodore hope to sell the bundle across Europe although its contents remain to be fixed.
NEW multimedia hardware is promised for Amiga users following Bedford-based HiSoft's recent buyout of Audio Visual Research (AVR).
The firm will take over all AVR's current and future business and use its name on all new hardware, while keeping the HiSoft name for software packages.
AVR are already a household name in the Amiga market, having produced such products as Stereomaster, Clarity 16, and Videomaster.
Their current range is marketed by Microdeal and this arrangement will continue under the new ownership. Future products will be sold by the parent company.
"This acquisition takes HiSoft into new markets and consolidates its already strong position in the Atari and Amiga marketplace,” said HiSoft boss David Link.
"We shall be producing new hardware titles for these machines as well as investigating other platforms and we shall concentrate on multimedia solutions for popular home computMore bite...

For example, Framestores can be directly manipulated by all machines on a network, including non-Toaster equipped machines.

I ot as well known in this country as it deserves to be, Infofile I comes to you courtesy of The Disc Company and is a product of the same stable that brought you Pen Pal, Final Copy, and Final Copy II.
It is unique in that it offers not only traditional database record keeping, but also the displaying of picture files and playing of sound samples. Combine this with the program's extreme ease of use and you have a database which offers something special.
The version found on this month's disk is complete in every way and identical to the Infofile found in shops except that there are fewer example databases included on our disk.
Once the main Infofile archive has been unpacked onto another floppy, users will have a complete auto-booting database program with enough space on the disk for a number of their own records.
Start the process by booting from the CoverDisk and double clicking on the AC6l disk icon, then on the Infofile icon.
We've archived the contents of the original Infofile disk in order to fit it onto our own disk, so a window will appear and some text will warn you that you require a blank floppy.
Once you have confirmed that vou levels complete with names, address* telephone numbers, and subscription paid, we will need six columns with I titles Surname, Forename, Address, Pa Code, Phone and Subs- Creating these one by one is easy, and i matter of simply selecting one of th define options from the Column menu.
Start with Define Data, which is us wish to proceed, the process of formatting a disk then unpacking the archive onto it will begin.
This can take some time, but is the best and most reliable method we have found.
It does, unfortunately, require 1Mb RAM, but as no Amiga has been sold with less than this amount for well over a year, there should be few problems. As soon as Information explosion With this month's free database program, everything from addresses to sound samples and graphics can be brought together under one organising umbrella the Infofile disk is ready, reboot the Amiga and start the program.
Initially, the screen will be fairly blank, with a completely empty page which looks like a page of A4 ruled paper. We'll start to fill out the database by adding some columns, but first let's consider what kind of data we are going to store.
To keep track of, say, club membership Scala HVT From Scala UK The Scala HVT archive on this month’s disk includes a fully functioning version of the package minus Save function and with a built-in limit of ten pages in each script.
Within these limits, every reader should be able to set up his or her own presentation scripts and run them or use them with a genlock to overlay live video.
To prepare Scala HVT for use. You must go through the same process as used with Infofile by clicking on the Scala HVT icon and unpacking its contents to a fresh floppy.
Once the disk is ready and you have been given the finished message, reboot with the second floppy. A message concerning the demo will appear, shortly followed by the standard Workbench screen.
For a quick run through of some of Scala HVTs superb features, double click on the disk icon, then on the Scroll.script icon. This will load the player program, whose icon you can see in the disk window, and the Scroll.script itself which is a smooth and well presented set of titles for a typical home video. Once this has played a few times, hit the Esc key to jump back to Workbench and click on the Example.script icon. This is a very different script showing a few of Scala's wipes, scrolls, and Special effects for use in presentations and rolling information screens.
One viewing of this and its companion script should be enough to whet any user’s appetite, SO let's quit out Of the script and load up Scala HVT proper.
The main control screen is the first to appear, an is simply a list of screens, presently empty, with number of buttons below it.
By clicking on these buttons, the user can load I scnpt (though not save it in this demo version) run tN script presently in memory, change, delete, show, a create a new page. Without a page to start with, we n stuck, so dick on New to begin.
A requester appears asking the user to choosj background image for the page. This can be any IF image supported by Scala HVT. But tor now we’ll sbd with those supplied on disk.
Click on the Pictures directory, then on Test Pictun then on OK and our background - the familiar TV ted card - should appear.
The bottom quarter of the screen will be obscurd by a control panel, but the user can flick to a ful screen view and back again by clicking the rigtt mouse button. Here is where most of Scala's easy use features are accessed, so take a close look at ttx page control panel.
Buttons exist for a wide variety of text effects, sud as outline. 3D. Italics and so on, but we must first ai some text. Click anywhere in the upper window to act Amiga Computing June 1993 26 Pfrttlcy Cj&Htity

"Surname" in the col- «nn name string gadget and click on OK.
Infofile’s screen display should now show a single narrow column. If the column appears either too narrow or too wide for the data it is expected to contain, its width can be altered by simply placing the mouse pointer on the right-hand margin, at which point a bi-directional pointer will appear which the user can use to drag the margin in or out. Try this for yourself, then follow the same define data route to set up columns titled Forename, Address, Post Code, Phone, and Subs. Note that when the latter two are created, the data types chosen from the define data requester should be Phone

size 32. YOU can ghOOSe another font com- setely or go for a
larger size, but this will do for now.
Next, the text will still be in its Original colour, SO look at the top row of buttons. These are titled front, outline, shadow, and 3D respectively and are used to determine the four main text attributes. To change the text colour, choose from the colour bar just above our control panel, then click on the front box. A glowing yellow stands out well, so choose this colour to start with.
Now for outline, shadow and 3D. These are toggle buttons, none of which are active when text is first input, and when activated they have a sunken 3D look.
For this example we want a dark outline to make our text stand out from the cluttered background, so choose black as our outline colour and dick on the outline box.
Our text now looks much better, doesn't it? You can experiment with the 3D and shadow features if you like to form an idea of how flexible Scala HVT can be. But yellow with a black outline works well in this context.
Chances are that though the text is now presentable, it's in an awkward place. If you clicked in a silly screen position initially and would like to move the text around, just click on the Move button.
The control panel will disappear and by just clicking on the text you can slide it around the screen to your heart's content A quick stab at the right mouse button takes us back ( t f- } [ iiiiiiii » 11 ¦ I-.., j D a T* a ?

This requester enables the setting of the more usual print options, such as length of page, margins, draft letter quality, pitch, and lines per inch. It is preset to the best values for an A4 page, so leave it field. Please note that because the repeat data entry option on the Options menu is selected, pressing the Return key will skip to the next record.
This is a useful feature when inputting a large number of names in the same field over a range of records, but it can be turned off for now if you prefer to use the Return key rather than Tab.
As the form view shows the data more or less as it will be printed, it is important that the user is happy with how the fields are organised, and to that end Infofile offers several incredibly easy to use formatting features.
For example, to alter the position of a record, simply dick on the name of the field, hold down the mouse button, and drag it to its new position on-screen.
To change the size of the field, just place the mouse pointer on the right edge of the field boundary and drag it in a similar fashion to when we altered the width of columns in the list view.
Field names which are too long to fit in the boxes can be given more room by dragging the line separating them from the data area, but users should be aware that the names of fields will not be printed and are for on-screen use only.
Complete control of the printed area is Virus Checker v6.22 Author: John Veldthuis One of the most universally recognised virus killers in the business, Virus Checker has made several previous appearances on the Amigd Computing CoverDisk. And we make regular efforts to keep our readers up to date with the best system protection software.
Version 6.22 is the latest version at time of writing, so for those of you who have used this program before, just drag the relevant files from the CoverDisk to your system disk and carry on as usual Those new to Virus Checker will need a little more tuition, but not much more.
First, run the program by double clicking on its icon. A thin bar will appear on the Workbench screen and the CoverDisk will be automatically checked for viruses. Please note that if this is the first checker you’ve ever used, it is* highly likely that you already have a virus.
In this case, the CoverDisk may already be infected, which means Vims Checker will alert you. Do not make the mistake, as so many have done in the past, of thinking that the vims originated on our disk! This happens every time we give away a checker and it's becoming tedious Right, rants aside, the CoverDisk should check out clean as a whistle and you should be able lo access the menus. Click on the Vims Checker bar with the left mouse button, then hold down the right mouse button to reveal menu options to scan a disk for link viruses or damage caused by the Saddam vims, scan memory, and so
on.
In addition, users of Workbench 2.04 or greater can click on the window zoom gadget to bring up an intuitive interface with more control over scanning options and default configuration.
For full details on how to use Vims Checker v6.22. see the on-disk documentation.
Possible through the print menu. Choose Print Options from this menu and a requester will appe.ir containing a number of variables which can be set to alter the printed information The default setup b for a print area five lines high and 30 characters wide, multiple records on each page, and no labels, but bv changing these values, the user can alone and click OK.
At this point, printing a report it accomplished by selecting Print... T Printer for hard copy or Print... To A; File for a copy of the output on disk.
The latter option results in a file con* taining only those fields covered by Print Options being saved to the same director] as Infofile for later use as, say, a mai merge file.
If you have a printer connected and wish to see the output from Infofile, type a few names and addresses into the database we have jusl set up and print them. By adding a few extra columi between Address and Post Code, the town and county can be included for I complete address label, and the result ii an impressive automatically generated for printing to sticky labels or envelope That's about all there's room for in tl lightning tour of Infofile's basic featu: but there are many more ways of usii the program and many menu options w haven't covered.

If you subscribe to Amiga Computing and your disk has been damaged in the post please return it to: a bit of flourish. On the extreme left-hand side of the control panel is a blank box. Click on this and the wipes requester appears giving us access to the many effects which can be used to govern how objects are placed in Scala screens.
At the moment there is no designated effect, but we can quickly find one we like by clicking on each icon then choosing the Show option.
Personal favourites will vary from user to user, but some effects are obviously designed to be used on entire screens or very large brushes and so are inappropriate for lines of text. Once a suitable effect has been found, click on OK to return to the control panel.
We will now add a brush to the ensemble, so cfick on the Brush button and choose the Symbols drawer on your Scala HVT disk. Go into the Sports sub-directory and select the tstPrizel brush, then click on OK.
At first, the medal will be represented by a ghosted outline, so place it wherever you think best and click first the left then the right mouse buttons.
If you like, it is possible to add all the outline, shadow, and 3D effects to a brush as well as text, but for now we'll just add a wipe. Click again on the blank box to the C1 Commodore far left and look in the wipe requester for the slide icons.
These are the bold arrows pointing in eight different directions, and they indicate the diredion in which Our brush will slide (or scroll) into the screen. Choose any one you like and click on Show.
Nice, eh? To further customise our mini presentation.
We'll add a second page. Go back to the page control panel and click on OK twice to return to the main screen, then on New to create the second page.
This can be any combination of background, text, and brushes, just so long as it comes after the first page. Its real purpose at the moment is to show the transition from one page to another, so experiment and produce your own page.
When the second page is ready and we're back at the main control screen, look carefully at the two columns on the right.
One shows the wipe to be used from one page to the next, the other the time taken between pages.
At the moment, both wipe boxes will show a blank, so click on page 2's box and add a suitably impressive wipe then click on the Run! Button.
To vary things a bit, the wait boxes can be set to any number of seconds or to respond to mouse clicks Experiment with these two columns to generate the best effects and most suitable transitions for your presentation or video titling effort.
After all. Now that you know the basics of using Scala HVT, creating all sorts of scripts using brushes and images from a paint package should be child's play.
Am The Amiga Computing CoverDisk is designed to be as simple to use as possible. Follow these instructions and you'll be up and running in no time!
Vw readers may have difficulties ¦ ting our CoverDisk, so we have
- 'xluded this page to help you out.
X of the first things you must do when get your CoverDisk is make a backup copy, then put the original CoverDisk away for safe keeping.
As a rule you should also do this with the majority of your software collection.
Below we explain how to copy
• es from one disk to another, how to copy the entire CoverDisk
and Bow to de-archive programs, none !.» Yif.il, m oat 11
IIF=i il So if you have copied a program from the CoverDisk to
your Work disk or hard drive make sure you also copy any other
files the program requires, ie fonts, libraries, device drivers
and Ccommands.
Vou might at some point want to copy a single program xn a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or I even your hard drive.
To do this you'll need the COPY command. As most CoverDisk programs are stashed away in their own direc- | tones, the quickest way to copy a program is to copy the "tide directory at once. Use the command: COPY directory} TO (nenduk) AIL "here directory) is the full pathname of the directory ou wish to copy, and newdisk} is the name of the disk and directory into which it will be copied.
Tor example, if you wanted to copy a utility called FRED from CoverDisk 27's Utilities drawer to a directory cated FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: C0»Y C0VERDIS(27:UT1UT!ES FRE» TO V0RABENCH1.3 FRE0 ALL Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory on and drag it across to the new disk's window. This has the advantage of creating a new directory for you and copying the icon as well.
Once you have moved a particular program to where you require it you could experience some problems run- rwsg the program. This is sometimes caused by the program not being able to find files which it needs to run.
A good example is the text files on the CoverDisk.
These have been crunched using PowerPacker, so when you try to copy them to another disk and then try to read them you can't unless you have also copied the '‘owerpacker library into your UBS drawer.
To copy the entire CoverDisk, load up your Workbench then either click once on the CoverDisk icon and
• elect Duplicate, or select Copy from the Workbench r'«nuf or
open CLI Shell and type: HSKCOPY non 0F0: TO IfO: When
prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source disk) in OK): and be
ready to replace it with your blank disk (the destination
disk). Follow the Amiga's on*screen prompts xtii the disk copy
is completed. Now put the original
* way in a safe place and use your backup.
Copying individual files How to make a backup De-archiving Occasionally we have so many programs to fit onto the CoverDisk that we have to archive them. Archiving is where we take the entire contents of a disk and compress them into one file which is much smaller, giving us space to fit more programs onto the disk.
Dearchiving programs which are on the CoverDisk is a very simple task. If a program has been archived then you will need a blank disk to dearchive it onto.
Say we have archived a program called FRED. You simply double click on FRED's icon, and will be asked if you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to. Type "y" or "n" accordingly.
Your computer will then copy the archived file into its memory and ask you to insert your blank disk. It will proceed to format the disk, and will then de-crunch the archived file onto your blank disk.
Once this has been done you can simply reboot your machine with the disk which contains the dearchived program on it and then use the program as instructed in the CoverDisk pages.
Note that if you have a Workbench 2 or upward machine you must boot with the CoverDisk write- enabled to perform the dearchiving process.
Workbench 3 If you have a Workbench 3 machine, don't worry - most if not all of the programs on the CoverDisk will work on your machines.
If the program is specifically designed to work with Workbench 3 then you may have to copy the program to your hard drive or Workbench disk using the process described earlier on this page.

So knowing that all you folks are Commodore fanatics. I will be aiming to provide you with the best inside information on what’s new in the Commodore world together with the latest hints and tips.
Since agreeing to write for INDI, I have been amazed at how big the Commodore market place is. INDI tell me that their sales desk has been swamped with orders for their Amiga 1200 hard disk offers.
Not surprising, when you consider that they are offering a product officially covered by Commodore maintenance through Wang UK.
Of course, you can buy a non standard Amiga with a dealers own warranty but thenCommodore do not give their approval with out a great deal of thought.
I know what I’dprefer to buy.
Congratulations to David Pleasanceon his appointment as General Manager at Commodore as he takes the helm from Kelly Sumner. David has been at Commodore for many years and has most recently been responsible for the developement of their business in the States.
Commodore tell me that the A1200 Comic Relief Pack has been a real success, thanks to all you generous Sleepwalker fans. Don’t forget Commodore donate £10 on your behalf to the Comic Relief Pund for every Pack sold.
By now you will all know about the new Amiga 4000 030 and it’s amazing capabilities but more about that next month, especially If I can get my hands on one before they are all gone!
What I need now is loads of feedback from you. Tell me about your Amiga and if you have any tips that may help others or problems that I can pass on.The best letter will be printed and the winner will receive a suitably excessive prize.

WHY NOT RING FOR A QUOTE. SAMEDAY RESPONSE. (SEE EXAMPLE) Panasonic Quiets We researched the colour pnnter market at great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful graphic output, yet at an affordable price.
We found the oerfpct printer in the KX-P2180 + KX-P2123 quiet printers.
We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer you would probably need a quality word processing package to use with it. We found that too, with • Wordworth', yet at retail once of £129.99 we thought that might be a little too expensive on top of your printer purchase! So together with Panasonic we decided to give a copy of ’Wordworth' free with every Panasonic printer How's that for added value?

FEATU R E¦ Broadsword productions, The Satellite Came was almost entirely Amiga generated, taking advantage of an accelerated Amiga 2000 in concert with designer software from Freescape - a duet which combined to complete the illusion of a futuristic version of the familiar Dungeons & Dragons scenario.
Although slightly out-gunned by the more technically advanced shows of today, this now long-forgotten show will always hold the title of the world's first VR games show - and mark Tim’s first steps on the road to a virtual success story.
With the history lesson complete, it's safe to move on to the creation of the show itself. As you may have already guessed, the programme is by no means an Amiga-only production - in fact the Amiga element is combined with high-end dedicated graphics hardware such as Matisse and Silicon Graphics machines.
Due to the format of the show, everything involved is very much part of a layering process with the aforementioned dedicated graphics systems providing the 24-bit backdrop while the Amiga produces the live foreground imagery such as scrolls, minor monsters, quest objects and so on. Amid the growing digital chaos comes the travelling human contestant, sandwiched within a sea of computer graphics. Of course in the studio our pre-pubescent hero is merely stumbling around on a plain blue background onto which the various effects are applied via an advanced chromakeying system which can
even generate shadows on the imaginary backdrop.
On the Amiga side things are slightly simpler with the resident A2000 being plugged directly into a genlock housed in the studio's edit suite. Then the various ?
Can the once.JgwT) games machjgjs make the grade on the big screen?
Paul Austin asks the people answering that question at TV's v leading role-playing show, Knightmare j games player at heart, and in fact it's exactly his interest in games and computers in general that inspired the creation of Knightmare and indeed many of the other VR games shows in the Broadsword stable.
Although firmly entrenched in the TV establishment, Tim was once a member of the oldest profession in the world - yes folks, a journalist!
And it was during these formative years as a news hound that he first came into contact with the newly emerging games scene.
Way back when the Amiga was merely a twinkle in the eyes of a bunch of Californian hippies, Tim was happily blasting baddies with the best of 'em, courtesy of a complete collection of early micros.
Although Pm painting a classic picture of a games junkie, Tim's interest in the finer things wasn't merely for fun. In fact he was one of the first people ever to grace the small screen as the Dominic Diamond of his day - admittedly a slightly insulting comparison, but thanks to these early exploits as a TV games presenter or reviewer the seed was sown for the VR TV shows of now.
Aside from simply enjoying the newly- emerging games genre as a competitor and presenter, the underlying narrative within such classics as Manic Miner screamed out to be taken a stage further, thereby providing a whole new strain of TV show for the ever-eager video kids of today.
VR EXPLOSION Although heading for its seventh season, Knightmare was by no means the first VR show to hit the small screen. Back in 1989 Tim initialised the VR explosion with a forerunner entitled The Satellite Came which appeared on the now defunct BSB network. Unlike the very latest Knightmare Thanks to the unrivalled success of the Amiga games market, it's been a long hard slog for the Amiga to gain any reputation as a serious machine - even though hardware like the A40Q0 can literally outperform any PC on the market when it comes to graphics and general multimedia.
You only need to mention the word Amiga to the average technologically-illiterate media pseud to see the bigoted aftermath of the games years Seeping from every spritzer- soaked pore.
Thankfully some of the industry's more forward- thinking companies are finally seeing the light and beginning to let the Amiga play a leading role in their productions.
At the forefront of this new wave come Broadsword Television Productions, the creators of Knightmare, Cyberzone, and Timebusters - the UK's leading virtual reality and adventure game shows.
Before delving into the technicalities of production I spoke to the creator of Knightmare, and Broadsword's leading light, Mr Tim Child.
Although 46 years young, Tim still proudly claims to be a ?
Scrolls, trolls and assorted graphics are applied in real-time.
Tim stressed that the game must remain exactly that - a game, in which the contestants can really become immersed - otherwise no matter how much technology was thrown at the screen, the kids would destroy the illusion with indifference when forced to hang around for hours between takes slowing losing the "Alice in Wonderland" feeling that makes virtual reality so appealing, Due to this need to maintain the illusion, the Amiga is the perfect tool for realtime changes inspired by the actions of the contendere. If instant alterations are called for they can be edited from existing mate
rial on disk or, if necessary, generated afresh by the program’s resident Amiga artist Jan Thwaites.
In order to discover more about the Amiga graphics involved, I approached the voluptuous Miss Thwaites with a few probing questions about her past experience, graphic creations and involvement in the wacky world of broadcast TV.
In the best traditions of Amiga graphics, Jan started her career generating game graphics, but this was by no means the beginning of her artistic exploits.
Originally she followed the classic artistic route of art school then the Royal College of Art.
On entering the wide world of graphic art, the inevitable letterheads and logos ensued, followed by a chance meeting with the aforementioned Mr Child who through various means convinced her to join the Broadsword team as an in-house graphic designer responsible not only for the Amiga elements but also many of the real world props seen in the show, As is the norm with professional Amiga artists, I was fully expecting a long list of expensive hardware and associated software to be quoted when the inevitable question of kit was asked. However, much to my surprise there was no mention of
Harlequins, ADPro or in fact anything of that ilk.
In fact Jan creates all the Amiga graphics on perhaps the lowliest setup imaginable - just a bog standard A500 along with the inevitable copy of Dpaint.
SOLID TALENT Amazingly enough there isn't even a hard disk on hand, and as a result all the graphics created for the show are ported to the studios on floppies and then installed on the edit suite's resident A2000 ready for incorporation into the action.
Although quaintly old-fashioned, the lack of expensive hardware only goes to Amigas in the business... Although Knightmare is one of the most innovative applications of the Amiga in television, it s by no means the only one. In fact a whole host of well known shows employ the machine at the heart of their videographic systems.
Catch Phrase Catch Phrase, the ubiquitous graphical guessing game hosted by Mr genial himself. Roy 'It’s gooode bud it's not right" Walker. Is almost certainly the most Amiga- intensive Show around, with literally every animation used emanating from the bowels of a bank of networked A2000S Due to the number of anims required, ail of the animated creations are fairly bog standard Dpaint jobs running at around 15 frames per second Obviously with hundreds of individual anims going into eveiy series, stretching the machine to its graphic limits Amiga Computing June 1993 would be too
time-consuming arid expensive to contemplate within the commercial constraints of broadcast TV.
However even under such restrictions, Catch Phrase Still manages to be one of the most popular games shows in the business, once again stamping the Amiga's authority as the most flexible, affordable and creative computing formats around Catchword According to our illustrious editor, the Amiga's influence isn't restricted south of the border, thanks to Catchword, which although similar in name to Catch Phrase, was in fact a slightly more cerebral Celtic game show.
Unlike many of its contemporaries, Catchword employed the Amiga on a much higher graphic level, with ray-traced graphics running in real time with the assistance of a Harlequin 32-bit board, and dedicated titling to boot. The titles wore all Amiga generated via a custom package while the ray-traced elements appeared courtesy of Real3D. In short, almost the entire graphic output of a commercial TV show from what many still consider a games machine.
The Chart Show Although a link between Knightmare and one of the UK's leading music shows may seem a little tenuous, they both share a similar mixture of dedicated graphics hardware and Amiga imagery.
In a similar vein to Knightmare. The Amiga element takes the form of foreground graphics that appear in the form of icons from which specific information on the artist in question is revealed.
Although very reminiscent of the normal Amiga environment, the actual interface is a custom-built software package designed specifically for the show.
FEATURE!
Prove that no matter how high profile a project may be, nothing - not even state- of-the-art software - can replace solid, no- nort ense talent.
This seemingly idyllic production process may sound pretty straightforward Kit nothing is ever that simple, and in fact Un spends the entire four weeks of the Knightmare shoot on hand in the studio iwdy to generate fitting graphics for the ever-evolving plot.
Obviously much of the groundwork can be done beforehand, such as empty scrolls and assorted treasures, but when needs ' dictate Jan can be I given as little as five minutes to produce a graphic to suit an unforeseen twist in the plot.
After the revelation surrounding the lowly beginnings of many of Knightmare'*; graphics, the obvious question was when - if at all - will the new AGA graphics available on the A4000 040 030 and 1200 make their way onto the silver screen?
Not surprisingly Tim already has an A1200 and is busy experimenting with its inclusion into Knightmare - and indeed new shows - already in the pipeline, but for now at least, old-style graphics will suffice.
With the apparent profusion of expensive dedicated graphics Systems already playing a major role in the show the question had to be asked; Why use the Amiga at all?
Not surprisingly one of the main fac- 4 minutes to produce a graphic to suit the job... make for good business.
And with the new formats promising enhanced graphics and sound - 24-bit as standard plus 16-bit stereo sampling - along with an 060 processor, the future is looking better than ever for the serious side of Amiga computing.
.-TIME | 50 MinutES tors in the Amiga's favour is cost. With the average Matisse or Silicon Graphics workstation approaching and indeed passing the £70,000 mark, a couple of hundred for a standard Amiga obviously has its benefits.
However it's not merely a question of cost, and in fact there would be little or no advantage in using such expensive hard-
- » • ware for the kind of Jan can be given work the Amiga
already does all too as little as five easily Admittedly there
may be a difference in quality' but if such a small improve
ment became essential, a cheap 24-bit board or AGA machine
could easily make the grade.
Although the once-humble games machine can't as yet match the performance in pure speed terms when compared to dedicated graphics engines, there's no doubt that the gap is closing while the huge price difference continues to advance the Amiga's cause.
The only question is: Can the machine stand up in an ever-more vicious market? In my opinion at least, the answer has got to be a yes - no matter what the cost.
THE ULTIMATE Considering the increasing popularity of the consoles and a threatened new wave of head-held Nintendos and Segas on the way, the Amiga’s future has to be in what it does best - multimedia, static graphics, animation, ray tracing, music - A question of convenience With the apparent success of Knightmare. The obvious question was; Why had Broadsword chosen the PC as its vehicle to the virtual world for its next creation.
Cyberzone?
The choice to plump lor Pcs was even more strange when you consider that the latest VR arcade games from Virtuality - the company responsible for normally sensible people developing an insatiable urge to sport silly hats - are powered by well-hidden Amiga 3000s deep within the crash bars and polished plastic of the hardware.
After quizzing Tim about this slightly curious choice, he openly admitted that the deci sion was purely one of convenience, and hinged around availability of suitable software.
By chance. PC software ideal for the Cyberzone concept was literally ready and waiting. All that remained was to network five 436 machines together and the show was in business.
In short, the kind of roles that have made it the ultimate productivity machine.
With the promised arrival of the AGAPlus and AAA chipsets in Autumn of 93 and Spring of 94 respectively, it appears that Commodore have finally learned the lesson that simply sitting back and counting the profits doesn't Babylon 5 Although British TV is becoming ever more Amiga- fnendly, Blighty »s by no means the only place where the machine is making, its mark. In fact on the continent -
• specially in Germany - the Amiga is the premier graph- cs
engine at the heart of countless cable stations.
Such success wiU no doubt be repeated in the UK as the vfomtsed cable explosion takes hold - if it ever happens.
However budget broadcasting isn't the only future for the Amiga Hollywood has already spotted the potential of the
- •aehme thanks primarily to the award-winning MorphPlus
- orphing package from ASDG which has already played a role in
film and advertising.
Even more exciting is the machine s excursion into sci- ce fiction courtesy of Babylon 5. As you may be aware, allowing the huge success of Star Trek - The Next S neration, there's been something of a sci-fi explosion over the pond with a whole host of shows springing up in its wake.
At the forefront of these shows comes Babylon 5. One of the most graphically lavish productions ever undertaken for network broadcasting, literally fit to burst with Amiga graphics including state-of-the-art morphing and 3D modelling generated by the Amiga in concert with NewTek’s famous Video Toaster.
With the huge success of the Toaster in the American market, the Amiga has become almost commonplace in both cable and network TV stations with its position being strengthened by Toaster-spedfic ray tradng software entitled Lightwave - a program which, alas, isn’t available in the Europe.
It has become so popular that in many cases it has proved more attractive than the Toaster itself, resulting in the bizarre situation of a $ 1,700 graphics card becoming almost a dongle for the software which comes bundled with it Bad Influence In keeping with the Knightmare tradition of childrens television. Bad Influence again uses the Amiga but unlike the other shows the machine's output doesn't play a direct role in the show itself. . R _ Rather than overlaying graphics, the Amiga element appears at the very end of the broadcast in the form of the program s Data Blast section, which when
viewed normally appears as a blur of graphics flying by illegibly at the end of the programme However, it isn’t designed to be seen in real-time. In fact to appreciate Data Blast a VCR is essential, the idea being that the show - or at least the Data Blast part of it - should be recorded and then the played back using the frame advance feature on the VCR. This in effect turns the pages of information contained within the section - all of which are of course generated on the Amiga.

SALES HOTLINE 0989 750260 TECH SUPPORT Q989 750337 _ SOFTWARE ¦ AMIGA COMPUTING PRESENTS Scrolling a screen like this h relatively simple with Scn ller2 The Colour Rolette menu It's probably fair to say that the original Big Alternative Scroller (BAS to its friends), which was the precursor fc Scroller2, made more than a favourable tftpu&ion on domestic and semi-profes- I tonal video producers - and perhaps even (•few pros.
Taking the credits Who knows how many holiday and wedding videos it has captioned? I expect
* o rather more than a few.
I Since BAS was launched several years kd a lot of Amigas have flowed under the fendge and Alternative Image rightly felt tot a new product was needed to bring ta old faithful up to date. So enter I Scrolled, along with a host of brand new I features.
FLOPPY DISKS It has been designed with the most | popular Amigas in mind. Only a megabyte of memory is required (prefer- I ably as Chip RAM), which means that all but the most witless Amigas can use it.
However, hard drive users will be dis- [ appointed that Scrolled can only be used from floppy disk and power users like me tnav be a little cheesed off that it falls over | at the least sniff of an accelerator (at least it did with my normally placid GVP | Combo card). Still, not being in the major- [ Hy 1 suppose I shouldn't complain too lewdly.
So how does Scroller2 shape up in action? The first thing to do is to reboot your Amiga with the supplied Scroller2 AMIGA COMPUTING PRESENTS ON OF BIG SlYtfJTITLEO H*re'i what can happen when you genlock graphics over video Program disk. Being a non-standard DOS disk (and non-copyable, though a backup is provided), Scrolled cannot be run from either Workbench or Shell, and neither will it multitask.
The reasons for this are both historical and practical, since bypassing AmigaDOS provides an improved scrolling performance and makes better use of those Amigas with limited memory capacity.
Gary Whiteley enjoys a sneak preview of the scrolling successor to the Big Alternative Scroller, the aptly and originally-named Scrolled Once running, the main menu screen presents a set of choices. The beauty of Scroller2 is that every aspect can be easily accessed using either the keyboard or the mouse. Function keys provide quick access to each of the major sub-menus or operations and clicking the mouse on buttons also gets you to the same places • so the choice is yours.
In fact, once you've learned the ropes you'll very quickly adapt to mixing function keys and mouse action to speed your way around Scrollerl Furthermore, many of the sub-menu screens include additional sub-items. For instance, the Font Parameters menu contains shadow settings and several spacing commands, while the Video Parameters menu has settings for the number of colours (four or eight), genlock mode (on off and Auto) and a test pattern loader. Again, keyboard or mouse commands make every choice simple and efficient.
Helpful as ever, Alternative Image have made sure that a well thought-out demo is included to show you just what Scroller2 can do. And this is an ideal place to start. Simply by pressing the FI key, a whole scrolling demo springs to life, demonstrating all the features of Scroller2 both effectively and, at times, humorously.
EMBEDDED COSTS After you've watched it go through its paces a couple of times you'll be itching to have a go yourself. But wait! A little study at this stage could well bear fruit later on.
The demo is also an ideal illustration of how Scrolled uses embedded control codes. These can easily be seen by exiting the Scroll using the Escape key - which, incidentally, is probably the most useful key in the whole package, as it is used to halt or exit almost every operation and return to the previous or main menu screens.
By subsequently moving into Text Edit mode (key F3) and pressing the Control key, a horde of strange little boxes appear among the more familiar words and letters.
Just like text, these codes can be inserted or deleted at will and provide a direct way of controlling various aspects ?
Making life easier As a bonus, several extra programs are included on a take-them-as-you-find-them basis to provide a means of converting Amiga fonts into Scroller fonts, standard Ascii text files into Scroller2-compatible text and bitmapped graphics into font objects which can be used within Scrolled.
Admittedly, the programs tend towards the rough-and-ready, but they all manage to do their intended jobs without too much hassle.
There are limits, however. Converted fonts should have no letters wider than 64 lines (otherwise they will not display correctly) and graphics can only be eight colours maximum - though in hi-res these certainly look crisp enough.
Of playback (such as pause times and fades) and certain text characteristics, such as shadowing, colour and font.
SOFTWARE You can leam a lot about Scroller2 just by watching the demo and bearing in mind just where and how the different control codes are used.
But it's all very well watching someone else’s work. How do you go about making your own? By first applying a bit of planning. If you can decide in advance what you want to achieve then everything becomes easier. Write out what you want to say on-screen in the order you want to say it.
Perhaps, for example, you need to make a set of end credits; so list who did what, who gets credited first, the size, colour and style of lettering that will be used and then start work in the text editor.
Don't worry if you don't include every* one first time around, because Scroller2 is quite forgiving. Words can be added, deleted and easily changed at any time - and that goes for die font as well.
The editing screen is, somewhat unsurprisingly, where text editing takes place.
Entering text is very similar to using a simple wordprocessor and at its most basic involves just typing words onto the screen.
But of course this will probably look rather dull, so there are umpteen ways of sprucing the text up and turning the really mundane into the relatively marvellous.
Through the use of a simple pop-up Those new features To whet your appetites, here's a selection of some of the new goodies which are built in to Scrolled: t Horizontal crawling as well as vertical scrolling.
• Can use standard Amiga fonts, as well as ColorFonts.
• 22 quality fonts provided in a variety of styles.
• Mix fonts, colours and shadow styles in words, lines and pages.
• Adjustable margins and crawl positions.
Control panel - which is good news for Amiga 600 users who don't have the standard numeric pad on their machines - and function keys, every aspect of Scroller2's text functions can be utilised to make interesting titles and captions.
Font selection, colours, justification, speeds, pauses, dissolves, changes from vertical to horizontal scrolling (and vice versa), shadow placing, graphics symbols, access to "exotic" and foreign characters and several other miscellaneous functions are all at the user's fingertips.
INDIVIDUAL FONTS In addition, further tweaks can be made to the way the text plays back by changing the spacing and shadowing of each individual font which is loaded into memory.
Once you think you're getting somewhere, it's easy to check your progress by jumping to Scroll mode and seeing how it all looks. This is also a good time to try adjusting the scrolling speed and judge how fast the text may need to go to be easily read.
Speed can be instantly changed by pressing keys on the numeric pad (unless you are an Amiga 600 owner, which means you have to use control codes instead) or stopped altogether by hitting the 0 key. As and when you feel like it, work can be saved to a specially-formatted text disk.
I'm not entirely sure how many fonts
• Increased number of speeds.
• A variety of transitions, including TeleText and fade.
• Embedded control codes for complex visual scripting.
• Smoother scrolling.
• Up to eight colours available from
4. 096.
• Both mouse and keyboard support.
4 It's easy to ¦ check your , progress by jumping to the stroll mode and seeing how it works can be held on the system at a time, as this is governed by the amount of Chip RAM available on the Amiga in use, though a megabyte should hold at least ten.
With some thought, system fonts can be fairly easily managed by making up custom font disks with which to replace the default fonts, something I'm sure many users will be anxious to do. Then its a relatively simple task to load your favourite set when you need it.
CUSTOM FORMAT Speaking of disks, Scroller2 uses its own format for both text and font disks (which, incidentally, are not interchangeable) and though it is possible to copy these disks through AmigaDOS (though currently only with a copier like X-Copy or D*Copy under WB2.X or greater) there is no way to monitor how full a disk might be or to fix it if something goes wrong.
And if anyone believes that nothing ever goes wrong where computers are concerned then they are very foolish. So some non-DOS disk management program should really be included - unless the data disk format can be changed to DOS, of course.
Let's be dear, Scroller2 is not without its problems, due mainly to its non- AmigaDOS operating system making disk management something of a battle and the Scroller Utilities also contributing to the confusion.
There are also areas of Scrolled which need completing, particularly the help areas, and a few bugs need fixing, but on Who needs a titler?
33°o CC Although programs such as Deluxe Paint IV can fulfil many of the Amiga videographers titling needs, there are times when it cannot successfully provide functions such as smooth vertical scrolling or horizontal crawling, not to mention special screen effects.
While Scrolled offers little in the way of wipes and other effects - in contrast to much more expensive programs such as Broadcast Titler - it does provide easy access to scrolls, crawls and several other effects, making it an ideal companion to Deluxe Paint, even for the more accomplished video maker.
Th* rtctanglts represent control coda whkh cm be embedded Into Scroller tent hr tpedal effects and Internal control over speed, fonts and colours the whole the benefits easily outw the drawbacks and in any case th Scroller Utilities are included more ac tools which users may find useful ratha than completely user-friendly program!
In their own right.
Alternative Image are the first to admit that Scroller2 requires some tidying up but they report that so far most users have been more than satisfied wilj the product, warts and all.
To sum up, 5croller2 provides snv scrolling and crawling text with plenty speed and other controls, a generoi range of presentable fonts and a simpl to-use interface.
It has its idiosyncrasies of course, but on the whole it works well and most purchasers should find it good value for money - especially if they are upgrading from BAS- And if you think that eight colours isn't enough for a titling package just make a note of how many colours the professionals use next time you watch the box. You might just be surprised!

MUSIC Although the title points towards an upgrade rather than a revolutionary new release, don't be deceived. The name may be similar, the graphics familiar and the interface seemingly identical, however it's under the skin where the real beauty of B&PPro2 starts to show.
Before the guided tour begins, now might be a good time to explain the basic concepts of the package before newcomers become hopelessly confused by what can appear to be a combination of music, plumbing and DIY.
Unlike the majority of Amiga sequencers, B&PPro is a true Amiga package - bom and bred - as opposed to a simple port-over from the ST and PC market.
Although not necessarily a fatal problem - as Dr.T’s often prove - porting does mean a lot of the Amiga's natural talents are often overlooked or ignored.
However this particular accusation certainly can't be levelled at B&PPro - no ugly green screens, full multitasking, Arexx, colourful point and click controls, pop-up requesters and mouse control with everything. In short the stuff that makes the Amiga the most flexible and friendly machine on the market.
If you've used sequencing software in the past you’ve probably already noticed B&PPro2 isn't exactly standard. Rather than assigning a simple track to each Midi channel the software allocates a separate pipe which sandwiches the track or sequenced section between an input and output pipeline.
The whole idea is that the package works like a sausage factory but rather than processing porkers these same principles are applied to Midi data, internal Amiga sounds and multimedia events.
For now we'll stick to the program's primary concern, which of course is Midi.
To set up a pipeline you first pick any one of the 16 default tracks or alternatively create a new one - which of course can be renamed when necessary.
Due to the program's Midi tendencies, ever)' track has a Midi In tool by default - without which you can't even squeeze a solitary note into the sequence courtesy of your keyboard.
TOOL SELECTION This is a prime example of a tool in action - in this case an input tool. If you were to select the Arexx real-time tool and drop it into a pipeline it would then automatically replace the Midi In as the input and from then oij process incoming Arexx rather than Midi data.
Due to the immense potential of tools the whole section will be devoted to a more detailed examination later on, but for now we’ll continue into the sequencer itself, bypassing the togglable play, mute The heart of B&Ppro 2 revealed with a quick bit of plumbing creating completely original sounds plus three methods of transport control oil on the some screen Piping and friendly with it Experience state of the art music and multimedia in concert courtesy of Bars & Pipes Professional 2. Paul Austin explores the most exciting software release to hit the Amiga in months tion of tablature - notes
displayed as fingering positions on a guitar fret board.
If one display mode isn't enough, a combination can be used to suit any taste.
In addition, a whole host of less traditional musical information can be added including volume, pitch bend, mono and polyphonic aftertouch, control change, program change, chords, rhythm, lyrics, time signature, key, scale and even dynamics. In short, if you want to view, and record buttons in the process. It's within the confines of the sequence window where you can examine and edit the results of the recording process. With the assistance of a well-placed mouse click each sequence opens its own unique editor complete with the entire passage for that particular track.
This can then be view, edited or printed as either classical notation, hybrid nota* tion, piano roll, or using the latest addi11111111111111111 99 fU 99 ;• 118 99 19 i re t re re An automated mixing spectacular Jmt lit both and watch the machine da all the hard wort for you... Through the edit window... In the lop right-hand comer sits the only permanent feature of the B&PPro2 interface, namely the 16 edit windows, each of which deal with a completely separate aspect of the editing and production process.
Without this modular design, working with the package would be almost impossible due to the huge variety of available windows.
Even in its present form the screen can still become very cluttered and as a result a hi-res display, whether it be flicker fixed or productivity, is a real bonus. However Blue Ribbon have done their best to solve the problem by implementing double height and width display on WB2 machines.

Erl 1531 E3 ! U HffRI The result is that elements can be left out while the screen scrolls around • in effect providing a scrollable window on the entire interlace.
Accessories For here you can implement Bfl the program's expansion options by in effect plugging additional software into the B&PPro2 interface.
By default 14 basic accessories come as standard allowing connection to both software and hardware, but it's also here where other elements of the Blue Ribbon Range can be added including SuperJam!, Patchmeister and SyncPro.
Once installed each becomes part of the B&PPro interface sharing its particular talents for the common good with perhaps the perfect example being SuperJam! Which automatically places its musicians in the form of tools directly into the tool box ready to be slotted into your chosen track for recording alongside your original creations.
Flags Although already briefly mentioned, its within the flag window where loops, key points, punches and in fact all the flags can be set numerically, and like all the timing options the numeric display can be toggled between measures and SMPTE as the preferred timing medium.
Mu hot print or edit any aspect of the piece it’s
• .imply a matter of selecting the option from the pull-down.
Assuming the environment is now to your taste, editing can begin, and to assist the process each window contains a complete set of point-and-click edit modes.
The available options include a magnifying glass allowing access to specific note information, a pencil for note addition, a magic wand for altering existing notes, a hand for dragging notes, an eraser for deletion, a toolize option which applies a specified tool to any selected notes, a bounding box to make the aforementioned multiple selections and finally a step time option allowing note entry via predefined settings.
OUTPUT PIPE The next four icons allow adjustment of the note settings and as a result any note length and volume can be set for additions both in step-time or during free-hand editing.
The final four buttons further enhance display and editing via twin zoom buttons, a playback option - either with or without additional tracks - and finally a togglable measure-to-SMPTE time display.
Assuming editing is complete, next up comes the tap at the beginning of the output pipe. From here you can either cut the output completely, play pre-recorded notes or select the default thru mode to hear your live input in concert with the existing sequence and any additional tracks.
From here, the pipeline flows out and enters the Midi Out tool ready for input into the chosen module or keyboard courtesy of the channel selector at the very end of the pipe. As you can see from the screenshots, the pipeline and sequencer aren't the only elements within the Track window.
Above the tracks themselves come the program's group, playback and multiple edit features.
From left to right: The options start with the solo selection button which toggles the output of the sequence dependent on track selection.
So for example if just one track is selected the sequence will cut and re-connect the valves to either solo the selected or cut the selected completely.
The same situation applies to group selections and as a result it's possible place all the percussion track in a group, select them by their group number and then solo or remove the percussion instruments as required.
M U S I C ¦ The next option takes global editing to If there s a way to look at and indeed print your creations the much Improved notation optlom con supply the good!
Its logical extreme by offering a toolize feature allowing a specified tool to be used across all the tracks in the sequence - quantise being a perfect example.
After toolize comes the aforementioned Group feature allowing up to eight different groups to be defined and then played back or edited as independent units.
EASY EDITING Yet another organisation option alongside allows the track position to be adjusted meaning individuals can be moved up and down the list thereby producing logical groupings of related tracks for easier editing and cross-track connection.
Next up come the transport controls and tempo option, although in reality the permanent controls offered in the Track window are really only a cut-down version of the full transport options we'll look at a little later. From here all the basics are Clipboard In the best traditions of cut and paste recording,
I. * •• ••» *| B&PPro2 not only edits individual clips but also
stores them sequentially in the clipboard, and as a result
it's simplicity itself to share elements between tracks.
A particularly nice touch is the option to specify what aspect of the clip is used. As a result you can paste only. Say. The pitch bend information from one track to the next.
In fact all the elements mentioned in the editor section can be included or excluded as required, and to finish the job clips can even be saved to and loaded from disk.
Song construction In this particular case the title tends to give the game away. In short it’s here where the finished verse, chorus and in fact anything else can be knocked into the shape of a complete song be employing the same editing techniques mentioned in the track editor This time the various Cut, paste and duplicate options operate on a bar-by-bar basis.
FIS!
However, in addition there is one major difference in the form of the A-B-A editing system which when combined with the pro- pogate option in the pull-downs allows any edits which occur within a named section to be automatically copied to all identical passages throughout the song • automation at its best.
Information Again yet another rather self explanatory feature which simply relays the appropriate information on the select track, plus song position and length, notes allocated and available RAM - whether it be chip or fast.
Tempo map Just as you can edit notes you can also edit time itsetf, a rather grand concept perhaps but in reality it simply means the tempo of the track can be altered at any point via a selection of four transitions curves which like all the edit options are applied and edited by the same tools found in aH the edit windows.
Master parameters , , In addition to being the Place ,0 add such things as I_” .1 lyrics, chords, key signature and rhythm, the Master Parameters have a more subtle side which provides a reference point for various tools and accessories.
For example the time signature will affect the printing of notation while chords and dynamics directly affect the chord and phrase shaper tools.
Tempo palette Although overshadowed slightly by the Tempo map, the palette window offers a selection of four preset tempos which selected direct from icons as required. ¦ MUSIC direct control of Scala all set up via simple irate selection 1 -1 fc«la-----_ 201 O 11II ¦ 111 n Script : .. ___n?

CUT AND PASTE Admittedly multitrack cut and paste is probably
the most important function on offer of the total collection of
12 assorted flags, which allow up to four definable key song
positions, definable punch-in and punch-out points, looped
sections, edit markers for the aforementioned multiple cut and
paste plus a stop button ready to terminate playback at any
point.
Even though a rather confusing selection initially, all 12 flags follow exactly the same principles of placement. As a result, a simply click and drag to the appropriate point is all that's required to set up the option of the your choice whether it be a key position, looped section or a cut and paste area.
Although closely linked to the transport window mentioned earlier, the so called "flags" have their own window allowing numerical adjustment while activation of the specified punch-in and loop sections is possible with mouse-driven tempo adjustment plus point and click tape deck controls for playback, record and rewind alongside a counter showing present song position.
Although single track editing has had a brief mention it by no means offers the powerful multitrack cut and paste that sequences are famous for. As a result it's here where the programs fairly unobtrusive multi-edit options come into their own.
Handled by the main transport.
And of course according to your preferences - again set via the pull-downs - the placement of flags can be automatically aligned with measures, beats, seconds or frames thereby snapping the particular flag to the nearest occurrence of the specified event.
Although rather innocuous wee beasties it’s the 79 tools supplied with B&PPro that make it really special. Due to the numbers involved a complete explanation of each is out of the question, however it's pretty safe to say that if there's a specific need either an individual or combination of tools will fit the bill.

Media Madness a fair selection of the supplied tools are related to such things as anims, stills, Scala, genlocks, samples, the 1V-24 and many others. However, even with the sizeable multimedia collection the vast majority remain musical Fitting very roughly into three basic categories.
First comes the fairly familiar special effects such as echo, delay, reverse, harmonise, chord builder and so on. In short the sort of effects you’d expect from a signal processor.
Next come the splitter effects which - by reading either the velocity or pitch - Filter certain notes to another track or perhaps replace one sound with another after a specific volume.
Alternatively tools such as counterpoint actually use your notes to generate original accompaniments or chords.
Lastly come the pipe-orientated tools such as branch out, merge, transpose, feedback and so on. Although not usually responsible for altering the sound directly, these channelling tools provide an invaluable link to other tracks in the sequence.

• TO Hac ro TooI M i d _ lust a small selection of the Immense
number of tools that come as pari of the package Media madness
In many ways the Media Madness window is almost identical to
the track window with the only real difference being that the
latter is designed primarily to record and display multimedia
events alongside musical ones.
So for example, if an IFF is assigned to a specific key on a track, the event when recorded will appear within the Media Madness window as perhaps “carPic” - assuming that's what you’ve called it.
The same applies to all the program's multimedia options - you simple assign a key and then while recording any depression of that particular note will activate the event, even though within the track window this “special note’ appears just like any other.
By this ingenious approach to multimedia literally anything can be controlled by what appear to be a bog standard bits of Midi information.
We’ll look a little closer at the multimedia side of B&PPro2 later but in essence the Media Madness window is merely a multimedia reflection of the track window, complete with all the edit options you’d expect from a Midi graphic editor - although the edits themselves are usually media rather than Midi.
Time-line scoring Although timing keeping appears to have been almost flogged to death elsewhere in the package, time-line scoring offers yet another option, but this time it’s whole songs lhat come under the microscope - or should I say metronome.
Via the now familiar selection of edit tools, complete section can be dragged around in SMPTE time to provide the perfect synchronising environment for DTV and film.
Metronome Note surprisingly it's here where the human side of the time keeping gets a hand with options for internal and Midi counts either with or without the flashing assistance of the interface itself. The almost embarrassingly friendly point and click continues with mouse control for everything from selecting the channel and patch for playback, the number of intro bars prior to record and whether or not the count continues after the lead in.
Toolbox Although the tools them- i 31 selves will enjoy an entire ¦¦ section to themselves later, it’s from here where they emanate.
Depending on how you set up the window the various tools either appear as icons or icons complete with their names appended alongside.
Although the icon-only option may seem slightly stupid it's with good reason as an incredible 79 tools come as part of the B&PPro2 package.
As existing users of its predecessor will be well aware this is a huge increase and a major selling point for the new version.
Fortunately for both memory and space you're given total control over installing and removing tools as required.
R MUSIC!
A even closer look at song construction but It's the generic edit options that make mastering the package rriuch easier for the beginner 0001 . 01 . 00 0001 . 01 . 00 0001 . 01 . 00 0001 . 01 . 00 The flog requester complete with the various Icons. If you don't fancy typing simply dragging the Icons on the track window makes editing a dream sounds from just a single note which feeds through a network of tools and tracks picking up effects and additional sounds in the process,The final twist in the tool tail is the program's macro option which allows you to build totally new tools by
combining existing ones within a special window.
Once complete the new tool can be saved and installed just like any other.
The real beauty of the macro tool system B that it provides the opportunity to capture accidental strokes of genius within the track window.
GREAT EFFECT If by pure chance you create a really great effect the assorted tools and pipework can be duplicated within a macro tool and saved for posterity ready to be re-installed - complete with designer icon
- alongside your existing collection.
Just like Midi tools, the program's multimedia options are simply too diverse to cover in the space available but to give you just a taste of the power on hand here's the in-a-nutshell guide to one of the simplest Media Madness options - the IFF viewer.
Once installed as the chosen effect, any number of pics can be appended to a selection of notes. Although pretty impressive in itself, basic on off display is only the tip of the iceberg.
If for example modulation is applied either live or during recording the image appended to the note will fade in and out according to the degree of modulation.
As if that's not enough the addition of pitch bend applies colour cycling - amazing!
Believe it or not this is about the simplest Media Madness tool on offer and is literally dwarfed by the more complex control tools such as the Scala tool, the IV24, Panasonic laser disks, the 4B&P Pro 2 is without doubt the hottest item in both the sequencer and multimedia markets 5unRizel2 and 16-bit boards - the list goes on and on.
In short, although not strictly a presentation package, B&PPro offers arguable the most comprehensive multimedia environment available on the Amiga - and they even throw in a standalone Media MadrteSS player to round things off.
Although noted for my less than enthusiastic closing paragraphs I must admit I'm at a loss to knock what in my Opinion is one of the best releases in months, if not years.
On the musical side the package is near faultless and with the much improved printing and of course the incredible Media Madness option B&PPro2 is without doubt the hottest item in both the sequencing and multimedia markets.
It's true that you'll need a hell of a machine to run all the elements in tandem but to be fair that's the case with all the NEAR FAULTLESS The bottom line Ease of use 10 Implementation 10 Value for money 9 Overall 10 j Supplier: Meridian Software Distribution Tel: 081 543 3500 Price: £299 I exchange for any other sequencing Software with original manual) packages in this sort of class.

Hi Res monilor SYSTEM ESSENTIALS YELLOW = Recommended Mix Maestro Although not a new feature, automated mixing is a sure sign of a modern power sequencing package and as you'd expect form software in the £200+ bracket, B&PPro2 isn’t found wanting when it comes to the mixdown.
Aside from offering simple control change information within the tracks themselves. Mix Maestro provides real-time pan and volume control which in effect mean the window operates just like a automated mixing desk but on-screen rather than in the studio.
Like any decent mixing desk, track groupings can be assigned to make the process simpler - in this case four, so for example percussion groups, strings, brass or whatever can be locked together and thereby faded up and down as a complete unit.
Tvacks In addition panning is again all done via the icon equivalent of a pan-pot, you simply click and move the mouse to send the sound of you choice from left to right.
Footsteps could pan from speaker to speaker while soft strings fade away into a growing crescendo of percussion - during which you simply sit back and watch the automated sliders do all the hard work.
Even better still, various mixes can be saved either to the clipboard or disk for later comparison or the inevitable remix - a feature worth even more than a pair of six-inch platforms on the dance scene.
Record Although recording is well catered for in the track window the Record option offers the useful ability to fitter out unwanted or perhaps unnecessary Midi information by allowing you to toggle note on off. Pitch bend, mono and poly aftertouch, program and control change and finally system exclusive information in or out of the recording equation.
[iiX Transport control Even though transport control is offered within the track window and via a pop-up mini transport, this full-scale version adds all the whistles and bells in the form of icons which automatically jump the sequence to any one of the 12 flag positions while also allowing access to the punch-in and loop options.
In addition you also have full time display in both measures and SMPTE plus the present tempo settings and an invaluable half and three-quarter time playback option which makes tricky recording much easier by temporarily slowing the sequencer - and thereby the record process - without the need to adjust the overall tempo of the track.

DN39 6SP « 0469 588138 ARTWORKS CLIP ART After being an A500 Plus owner for over a year I decided that it was time to upgrade my system, and have pur* chased an A1200 with 120Mb hard drive.
Now that 1 have a hard drive 1 wish to use the thing, and it is only now that 1 realise how few Amiga games are not capable of being installed on this much more convenient medium.
Hard drive horrors The software houses may well reply with the gripe that it is the piracy problem which leaves them no option but to opt for on-disk protection, but this protection has often been accused of damaging floppy drives by forcing them to make very irregular disk accesses.
It is in my view criminal behaviour to distribute a product which they know is likely, with repeated use, to damage the purchaser's computer system.
This is totally unacceptable. Owners of PC compatibles, where piracy is thought to be 50 copies for each original, do not have to put up with this sort of treatment and it is about time that software publishing houses were brought to book for this treatment of Amiga owners.
From now on, 1 will not spend hard-earned cash if the program will not install on hard drive, and if other Amiga owners were to follow my example the publishing houses would be forced to take notice and change their current policy.
Nigel Spence, Linton'on-Ouse You have put your finger on a problem which has confronted a growing number of Amiga owners and which, despite regularly attracting criticism from readers such as yourself, the software companies seem determined to ignore.
Let's face it. On-disk copy protection is about as effective as a chocolate teaspoon, from the lists of cracked games toe receive now and again from anonymous hackers, it is clear that the vast majority of fwpular games can and will be cracked and swapped almost as soon as they are released.
It begins to seem strange that although the software companies have sworn by on-disk protection for years as the only effcc- five method for combating piracy, they still suffet as much from the software thieves despite the fact that copy protection is now much more sophisticated than it used to be- This in itself should be enough to convince them that to carry Wif f 0,1 fitting a losing battle at the cost of upsetting a growing section of the user base is in the long run suicidal.
The ultimate insult is when a game on the Amiga will not install on hard drive despite the fact that the PC version of the same game does.
There have been several recent examples of thus, and the apparent difference between Amiga and PC owners in the eyes of the games companies - one is a potential thief, the other isn't - is probably the most insulting and patronising aspect of the whole copy protection debate Out of seven Or eight Amiga magazines in New Zealand, Amiga Computing is the only one which gives value for money, even if it does cost S16 (about £5.35) a time.
Old fogies abandoned Being a games type person, I found your Absolute Beginners section ideal for getting more in depth advice, and found I could "repair" some of my non-booting disks. The CoverDisk is great loo, especially Cybemetix (try level 62 and 5%,482 points on for size), but my one gripe is that both the disk and the magazine seem to be very biased towards Workbench 2.04 and above.
I only have Workbench 1.3 and was wondering if you could keep it 50 50?
Oh yeah, when you ship out demos such as the Home Accounts 2 disk, maybe an extra month before the timebomb activated would be a good idea.
We pick up our December 1992 issue in mid February 1993, so we can't try programs like this for a full calendar month.
Name that tune Having read in the April issue of Amiga Computing about your views and recommendations on the music side of the Amiga, I was intrigued to read about the CoverDisk music. The article said that "when you've got some tunes you are truly proud of, why not send them to Amiga Computing for the CoverDisk?"
I was wondering what sort of music you accept and what conditions or rules you make for people who send music in. I have spent a large amount of time making music and I would be grateful if you could give me the necessary information.
Damien Warner, Harrow We will consider any type of music, from acid house to classical, for inclusion on the CoverDisk. The only prerequisite is quality.
Rules we use are the usual music copyright laws, so complete rip-offs of recent songs are out, as are boring sequences of samples from films, videos, or Cds.
Of course, original music is always the best, and though a well presented and produced but uninspiring piece can sneak on, we always prefer a reader's own work.
This aspect of the CoverDisk is, after all, designed for the thousands of music-making Amiga owners whose creations might olherunse never see the light of day.
That's it, I've had my moan. Keep up the great magazine.
Disk helper Being new to the Amiga, or any other computer come to that. I'm really grateful that your CoverDisks have been including items which help to educate my children. The Fun School programs for example.
Now to help educate me! Could you run a tutorial on how I can get the individual programs off the CoverDisks and on to a spare disk which will self boot?
Richard Nicholls. Newton Abbott We plan to run an AmigaDOS series for beginners soon which will be aimed at new users and attempt to take them from the first basic steps to creating auto¦ booting disks and other practical tasks, so keep your eyes peeled.
For the moment, try copying a CoverDisk. Deleting everything off it apart from the Fun School module, then dragging the Fun School icon from another disk into the same window as the first module. This might involve you in several disk swaps, but should be the easiest way to gather the three modules together on one disk.
John & Yvonne Hour, New Zealand I'm sorry that you think we're biased against Workbench 1.3, but the fact is that it hasn't been supplied with any Amiga other titan the CDTV for about 18 months in our main reader base, the UK and Europe. Since the release of the A500 Plus, Workbench 1.3 has been superseded by versions 2.0, 2.04, 2.1, sand 3.0. Our Absolute Beginners series, as you probably know, was pitched at both 1.3 and
2. 04 users, but as all new Amiga owners for over a year haw been
2.04 or 3.0 users, it is highly unlikely that we or any other
Amiga magazine will have the space to cover all three versions
of the operating system.
We have never missed an opportunity for urging as many people as possible to upgrade to the latest operating system, especially those uith any serious uses for their Amigas, and we won't miss it now. Workbench 1.3 is dead, long live Workbench 2 3 (uh, oh - Ed).
Your concern over the timebombed demo is one that we share, which is why export copies of the Home Accounts 2 disk had an extra month of life granted to them. However, we didn't count on our magazines being transported to New Zealand on some sort of Doolittlean Giant Sea Snail rather than by more conventional ¦ and faster • means.
Poor showing?
I recently visited the 7th International Computer Show in London and have a few cpmments to make about it.
Firstly, I'm surprised that AC themselves didn't have more of a showing than they did. I think that you should have had all the products you sell on show as some of them were not sold by any other stand in the show.
I don't think you did yourselves justice by having just a few back issues for sale and an advice desk. The game chosen for the challenge wasn't exactly brilliant either, but that's just my opinion. It may be that there were more products available ?
¦ LETTE RS siom can be £150 or less if you shop around, so don't worry about affordability.
The catch is that you should be prepared to add 4Mb RAM and a hard drive to your and receiving an instant refund or replacement. You will find companies much easier to deal with face to face.
Got something to say through the pages of AC?
Ezra Surf is our mailman, dedicated to reading your letters and selecting the most interesting for publication. Drop him a line at: Ezra Surf's PostBag, Amiga Computing Adlington Park. Macclesfield SK10 4NP Please don't enclose saes as Ezra just hasn't got enough paper to reply personally. He might also have to Shorten your letters, so don't be offended it you end up getting the chop Dird as a dodo?
Missing, presumed "dird". Month after month the CoverDisk startup sequence words remain unchanged, and the DIR command hasn't appeared since disk 37! Will it ever return?
F Carter, Reigate The words which come up as the CoverDisk boots Ore the last thing to be changed atul they can sometimes be missed. We'll sort this out. Sorry.
As far DIR, it's one of those commands which the majority of users don't need much, as they usually boot Workbench when transferring programs from the CoverDisk to another floppy, but toe'll include it from now on if there's space for it.
In the first two days as I went on the Sunday. If so, you should been consistent over the three days.
Secondly, there were only mail order companies at the show except for the Acorn, Atari, and Virtual Reality stands, whereas 1 think companies such as Commodore should have been represented. Also, the show could have been spread out a bit more, as it was fairly cramped despite the apparent abundance of space in the rest of the hall.
However, it's not all whinging. It was good to see so many mail order outlets slashing their prices for the show. I picked up some SoundBlaster speakers for £25 which was pretty good. The cost of admission was also low at only £4 for students, and all in all I had a good day, seeing some products running which I had never seen before.
I would like to pass on some advice to people considering the next show, Do check your products before coming away from the show if possible. The speakers I bought had a faulty 33mm plug, but luckily a friend of mine was able to fix it for me. The headphones were also missing but this wasn't a major problem.
I do have one question. Where can I get the addresses of the stand holders? 1 would like to contact a company called Connect International and also a stand which was offering a cleaning solution for spectacles which was right in the comer.
Scott Wright, Aberystwyth The show organisers, Westminster Exhibitions, can be contacted on 081-549
3444. They should be able to provide addresses and phone numbers
for any of the exhibitors present at the show.
As for the Europress Enterprise stand, we were offering back issues, subscriptions, current magazines, technical advice and a gaming challenge. If there was a stand at the show offering more for the money I for one didn 't see it.
I'm sorry you didn't approve of Sensible Soccer as a choice for our Gamer challenge, bul we had to haw a popular, recent game with the potential for good two-player competition, and we could only choose one game.
Your advice to buyers at computer shows is sound and we would urge anyone to follow it.
If only because returning faulty equipment to a company half way across the country is so much more hassle than doing it at the show A1200 graphics I am about to purchase an A1200, but before 1 splash the cash 1 would be grateful if you could help me out on a few points.
Before the A1200 was launched I was, reluctantly, scraping together the cash for a PC (because of the better graphics) in order to do some 3D animations. I don't have to spend as much now though as the A1200 exceeds my graphical needs.
A program on the PC platform called Playmation was a perfect piece of software for what I'm planning. It included 3D modelling, animation, ray tracing, and morphing. The use of splines in the modelling made it a perfect tool, and at a price of £1991 would have sold my soul to use it Is there any software presently available or planned for the A1200 taking advantage of the AGA chipset which performs these functions, and if so what is it and how much does it cost? If not. Are there any pieces of software which I could use together to carry out all these tasks?
Simon Brown, Manchester Where have you been? The Amiga's range of low price ray tracing packages have been unequalled for years and still are. Playmation is undoubtedly a good product which we may see on the Amiga soon, but it doesn't do anything not already possible with a copy of Real 3D or Imagine 2.0. Both these packages output high quality 24- bit images which the At200 will display as Ham8 through the Multivirw utility, and both are soon to be released in all new versions offering the latest 3D modelling and animation techniques.
Prices for the older ver- A1200 when considering such high level software, though this should still bring your machine in under the price of a PC. Have a look at our cover feature in the March issue for a comparison of the A1200 and the PC Petty picking It struck me while reading your magazine the other day that many of your hardware and software reviews are very picky. I mean, you seem to think a new product should be able to do everything and it always gets a rough ride if it doesn't My dog. Major, named after the Prime Minister (because he's grey and barks a lot), fetches the newspa
per, will sometimes lie down when told to, and hardly ever chews my slippers. He does, however, shed hair which can be a pain when trying to hoover.
1 fear my otherwise faithful pooch would have a score box looking something like: Hoover essential, Pedigree Chum recommended. Implementation 6, Ease-of-Use 6, Value-for-money 7, Overall 6.
This, by your standards, is a rather poor showing. Should 1 get rid of him and look for a faster or more colourful model?
I Cmklcy, Birmingham Well, Major is probably quite sufficient for the minor household tasks, such as coating the carpet with hair, causing a great deal of unnecessary noise, and walking around with his tongue hanging out, but you might be surprised how much better another model might be if given a try, We at AC try to ensure that every product is examined from eiery angle, which means that if there are faults in design or market placing, we will find them and highlight them.
After all, if uv didn't, we wouldn't be doing our duty to the readers.
Double trouble I have refrained from buying your magazine recently as I object to I paying for double CoverOisKs which I do not want.
Looking at my present collection there are hardly any that are in regu- lar use. A lot of them need other files to run or request disks which are not included, or simply fail to load or run. So much so that I have t decided to make a stand before the front page breaks up under the I strain of all the disks stuck to it.
I did think that Protext was going I to be useful, but have found it more I hassle than it is worth. I still cannot I print out a half page letter without it I scrolling to the bottom of the page I and tripping the Paper Out switch. I despite marking out a block and asking it to print block.
The time taken for me to get to grips with Protext was eating into other activities and as I usually need a wordprocessor only for writing letters, then Ed is perfectly adequate and using aliases from the Shell enables me to quickly set margins. Print style, and so on.
If your policy of extra CoverOisks and price rises results in improved sales figures, then good luck to you.
But to do that you need to sell an extra two to make up for my lost purchase each month.
G H Jones. Leicester I'm sorry you don't think our double disk issues are good value lor money and that you are having trouble with Protext, but we can t be all things to all men every month.
Indeed, partly because we don 't like to hike the price of the magazine too often and partly because double disks are very expensive to publish these days, we arc presently putting our special offers on a single disk.
This will please those like you who don 't want to pay the extra for another disk, but may annoy people who like to see as many shareware utilities as possible crammed onto our CoverDisk.
We will then receive letters from enraged readers who would rather see the latest virus killer than a commercial spreadsheet package, for instance, and the debate will swing round again.
In the end. Whichever approach satisfies the greatest number of readers will win out. So keep those letters coming.

Established in the Autumn of 1990, Just Amiga Monthly was the
first UK Amiga magazine to have the foresight to cut out the
gloss and the colour and concentrate on the applications and
productivity aspect of the Amiga. Our motto from the start has
been Guaranteed No Games, our goal being to help Amiga
enthusiasts to get the best from their machines, catering for
the out- and out beginner as well as the more experienced user.
Our readers tell us we are achieving this goal admirably month after month, providing them with important information that other magazines miss.
How in it's third successful year!
It’s impossible to sum up in an advert all that the magazine covers; the best description is probably 'everything except games', including up to date hardware and software reviews, tutorials and programming. But the absolute best way to find out is to buy the magazine and see for yourself.
And we are not afraid to practice what we preach - the magazine is professionally produced using Amigas and Amiga software! Best of all. It's your magazine. Many articles are written by our knowledgable readers, and we positively encourage you to contribute with articles, letters and problems for us to solve.
Full Money Back Guarantee: You may cancel your subscription at any time, for any reason, even after just One issue, and we will refund the cost Of all unmailed issues, no questions asked! What have you got to lose?

Amiga Computing June 1993 58 elieve it or not. Professional Page has been with us since 1987 in one form or another, and boy has it changed over those five years! But then again, the Amigas that it runs on have changed significantly too.
Now comes Professional Page 4.0 to take advantage of the new AGA chips and put yet more publishing power on your desktop.
B But AGA compatibility is just a small part of the new features which have been packed into Professional Page 4.0. There is also support for a wide range of graphics and text formats, improved font and page management, more text styles and Genies, pattern fills, custom magnification and plenty more, all of which justifiably deserve the new program revision number.
FOUR DISKS Another departure is that Professional Page 4 is now only accessible from hard drive-equipped Amigas, though this was, I suppose, inevitable. With four disks packed full of LHA’d archives there's little chance that floppy disk users would have been very productive (or even happy) continually swapping disks.
Floppy users can always find other solutions, such as sticking with Professional Page 3 or PageSetter 3, but its becoming increasingly evident that hard drives are now a more essential part of serious Amiga life than ever.
I've been using Professional Page 4's predecessor. Professional Page 3, for quite some time, so I'm very familiar with it, but I'm afraid I can't make any comparisons with Soft Logik's PageStream 2, which is Professional Page's only serious rival, as I've never used it.
But from conversations with users of both packages it seems that most are polarised either one way or the other, and likely to remain so.
There are quite a few nice touches in Professional Page 4. In addition to supporting AGA graphics (for 256-colour, near photographic quality images on-screen) possibly one of the best additions is its new ability to set up kerning pairs for a font, which means that common letter pairs such as T and o and A and V can be tucked together correctly, instead of relying on the old kerning method to space the letters out according to just one distance setting, which wasn't particularly successful.
Them as well. Their inclusion is welcome because they add another creative tool to the DTP designer's collection and letters, boxes and drawn shapes can all be pattern-filled.
The only snag is that any modified patterns cannot be directly saved and recalled for later use, though they will be saved with document files (but not pages), so at least they'll return the next time you load the document.
Gold Disk have also finally got around to incorporating irregular text flow around dip art and EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) Now it is possible to adjust any pair of letters you wish, in any font, and save the new spacings so that they will always be used each time the font is kerned.
What's more, the kerning pair requester is very flexible and easy to use and letters can be aligned simply by dragging them with the mouse. New pairs can be entered simply by typing them in. The result - much more professional-looking text.
Another thing that struck me was that at last Professional Page has the ability to add shadowing to lettering as a style, rather Iwttm Ya MB B r«ir 0 kern mvm »fH I 1 89 $ ?7 8 I lo d | | S»«» | 1 Defaults 1 I I Undo Copy Clear Invert nip x riip y Rotate than as a duplicate set of text in a different colour. • J0 mm m r EC EE EUK
LL) OK, there's presently no adjustment for where the shadow is
placed, but it's a start.
And now it's possible to properly outline letters and have their faces filled with a different colour (or even pattern) - something which previously required a fiddly trip to ProDraw.
Two more new styles - Superscript and Subscript - have also been incorporated.
Patterns and shadows are something which PageSetter (Professional Page's little cousinp) has had for years, so it's a bit of a relief that Professional Page 4 now has World-beating A new version of the original Amiga DTP package, Professional Page, is now upon us. Cary Whitley takes a look disks. So what disks does it work with then? ProSpool is a Print Spooler capable of addressing more than one printer at a time with more than one print job. Since I only have one printer I can only assume it works OK.
A remaining major omission is that Professional Page still has no text squash and stretch abilities - meaning that the width height ratio is still maintained when text is resized and, short of a visit to Professional Draw, there is as yet no way of making even the most basic of height and width-only changes to text.
If, like me, you customise your User-Startup assigns ,then you could be in for an unpleasant shock if you are upgrading to Professional Page 4.
When I first tried installing the program neither the PageGenies nor the Text and Graphic Filters were properly installed and the program was not updated from the version of Professional Page 3 which was already on my hard drive
- instead a new drawer was created for the new program.
The installation really caused me a lot of trouble and it took me a couple of daw and some detective work to finally figure out what the problem was.
It turned out that the Install program was looking to see if and where Ppage was assigned - but as my assigns were slightly different to what the Installer wanted it disregarded everything and went its own sweet way.
Hence the problems, Once I had made sure Ppage was correctly assigned the installer updated my Professional Page 3 files successfully and I had no further trouble either with Professional Page 4 itself or the strange recoverable gurus and screen corruptions I'd been experiencing every time I quit the program. Gold Disk could easily have made this simple caveat clear in the manuals, but failed to, resulting in a lot of BATTERED!

Amiga DTP producers Words don't come easy Professional Page 4
now has a simple text editor for writing or modifying Genies -
which are only Ascii Arexx programs after all.
But since Article Editor is almost perfectly suited for this kind of work I just wonder why Gold Disk didn't implement a Go To Line Number function in the Article Editor wordprocessor which is supplied gratis (it could do with it anyway) and forget about yet another text editor.
And while we re on the subject, how come Transwrite and Article Editor coni graphics, again another vital addition, which has been far too long in arriving.
Another new feature which may not get the use it deserves is the Paragraph Indent function, making for easy setting of normally indented or hanging paragraphs, and for adjusting the width of the indent itself. All selected text will then be automatically adjusted at every paragraph break.
Previously if you needed to shuffle pages around in a document, Professional Page had you using a numerical requester.
Now there's an icon-based Page Sorter which miniaturises each page and displays them all in a window.
Pages can be re-ordered simply by dragging them to a new position, which makes DTP life a lot easier - and you can even get a rough idea of how the final document will balance up.
I'm not sure exactly who the Stick-On Notes feature is aimed it, but 1 guess it must be useful to someone. It works very simply - dick on the yellow bar in the toolbox and a small yellow box appears. Type Import formats Professional Page 4 can now load the
• following formats directly: Graphics: Aegis Draw. Aegis Draw
Plus, Art Expression, BMP, EPS, EPSF.
Aldus Freehand3_EPS. GIF. IFF, Adobe Illustrator. PCX, ProDraw Clip and TIFF.
Text. Ascii, excellence!. Kindwords, ProWrite, Scnbble, Textcraft. Textcraft Rus, WordPerfect and Wordworth.
This all means less visits to a graphics converter program, no more worries about having to save text in Ascii and easier access to tots more image data.
Some text into it, "glue" it where you want it and wild!, a non-printing note for the boss to berate the DTI’ artist for retouching his hair with a colour that doesn't match his toupee... Whereas previous Professional Page required that you had to actually change the font before you could see the results, Cold Disk have thoughtfully (Joubtless benefit provided a Font J Preview window which will show a section of text in the new font - so if you don't like what you see you can preview others until you are happy. It's a small touch, but it's a nice one.
The Graphics Editor holds some initial promise - especially for AGA users - until you find out that it is only used for editing bitmaps and the maximum number of colours it can manage is just 32, regardless of chip set design!
Certainly, it's useful if you don't have Deluxe Paint or another bitmap graphics program but for most users it will probably not last too long on the hard drive, though it does have the hot-link advantage of being able to send and receive images directly to and from Professional Page 4.
There are two other additions which I was unable to use - FAISload and ProSpool. FAISload is described as being able to convert fonts bought directly from Agfa (presumably Intellifonts) into Compugraphic fonts understandable by Professional Page.
Great, I thought, I can convert my Agfa Video fonts to Compugraphic fonts.
Wrong! FAISload wouldn't recognise the tinue to have different keyboard Show cuts?
There’s now a British dictionary for thd spell checker, so there is no longer angj excuse to use Americanisms such afl ‘colorize’ and “humor".
For some of us this could be a little bfl too late - my own addendum dictionar* already has 850 extra words in it so Ivd probably covered most of the major adj ferences and omissions by now. Oj course if you're just starting out then dictionary should be a great help, even it doesn’t contain the word Amiga!
Fonts aplenty!
Professional Page 4 can make fu use of any true Type 1 PostScrip font - so long as the supplied For Manager software is used to conve" it to a format Which the program ca understand.
With hundreds Of fonts out there waiting to be converted (and man?
More already have been) there's n: need to be short on style evt again.
Unnecessary frustration. With the relfc- v4. Professional Page now has sev degrees more power and is somewhat« ier to use. This improved efficiency doubtless benefit serious Amiga DTP j ducers and in my opinion an upgr should be well worth it.
Better still, if you add the cumula cost of all the past upgrades together.
The initial cost of the original program I first time buyers are also getting something of a bargain.

More information or orders: Az louse, Broadfield Road. Eastington. Slonehonse» CU .OS, Crl. O 3BL Power products First up comes perhaps the prime example of evolutionary software in the form of TVPaint, a program which still holds the title as the Amiga's premier 24-bit paint package even though it's been around almost as long as the Amiga's very first graphics cards.
Now in vio, the quest for the ultimate 24-bit painting environment is almost complete, but as ever it don't come cheap
- especially if you're the proud owner of a Harlequin.
However there is a slight glimmer of hope for the financially hard pressed Harlequin owners courtesy of a £100 upgrade offer, but alas for any new investors the Harlequin version means a pretty bleak fiscal outlook even though the package has been reduced from a heart-stopping £900 to a miserly £600.
THE ULTIMATE Although the ACS board is widely regarded as the ultimate in commercial hardware, such a figure is still pretty hard
• e accept when lesser boards such as the Avideo happily retail
at about the same pneo or the board with TVPaint thrown at no
extra expense.
However it's very unlikely that v2.0 will be part of the aforementioned budget |kmdle. If we can leave the financial con-
• traints of the Harlequin and TVPaint combination aside, the
fact remains that with the two working together you have
arguably the ultimate Amiga-based graphics system.
AC continues to keep its finger firmly on the pulse of the ever-changing world of the Amiga dramatic note, scrollable screens have been added so at last it's not necessary to open a big edit file every time a non-Stan- dard file size is required.
For example, you can specify an image No doubt the most striking physical change has been the ubiquitous dongle which in this version has thankfully and finally migrated to the joystick port rather than being stuck into the external disk drive port.
This not only makes an external drive accessible but also means compatibilitv with the A40GQ.
Yet another AGA-friendly addition is the addition of Workbench 3.0-style multiple windows which means several requesters can be left on-screen rather than having to reactivate them every time minor changes become necessary.
Although seemingly unspectacular, this small change can speed up the experimentation process tenfold. On a more of let's say 1,024 x 1,024 and then select either 740, 832 or 910 x 576 interlaced or otherwise as the working area using the numeric keypad to scroll around the screen at will.
Although this may not seem exactly earth-shattering, the option to scroll can be a real timesaver given that you have sufficient RAM to handle the image, and of course if RAM is a problem the big edit - alias hard disk image storage - still awaits to save the day.
Another dramatic improvement comes in the form of a much-improved magnifier which at last has detached itself from the control panel - in older versions this meant that using the magnifier meant obscuring large sections of the image with either the magnifier window or the control panel.
¦UPDATES basic artistic modifications, Arexx is ah playing a bigger role with much betta interaction between the package and th target Arexx scripts with on-screen event actually sending relative data to the targt program.
Finally we've arrived at the final tun long-awaited improvements, namely a tol erance limit for flood fill operations plus auto-resize function within the Vial requester which re-scales the image to ft the screen - something which irritate many professional users in the past.
Weil that's about it! All very good ne*d if you can afford the investment. For mo* information on TVPaint 2.0 for th Harlequin or indeed any of the boards sup ported contact The Amiga Centre Scotian on 08% 87583 87456 (fax).
ADPro goes rollin' on... the OpalPaint program complete with the Raw image data from ADPro waiting on the OpalPaint edit screen After any tweaks and edits are complete, quitting OpalPaint immediately produces a prompt enquiring if the changes Should be reflected within ADPro Next up in the new operators list comes a variation on the warp operator entitled collapse.
As the name suggests, it collapses the image towards the centre of a definable circle with an optional blur effect available to soften the overall effect. The idea is to provide instant caricatures, Displace Pixel comes next and unlike most operators is only at its best in combination with another ADPro option, namely composition. When the two are brought together truly impressive dissolves await.
Steve Tibbet - an Amiga programmer already famous for his X series of utilities - adds the next operator entitled Intensity Range which generates a 256-level histogram of the image which can then be trimmed to remove erroneous data or perhaps brighten or darken the image - a good tip is to save using the temp saver before you begin to experiment.
Continuing in the special effects vein is a feature inspired by the Collapse operator. Polar Mosaic radiates a tiling effect from the centre of a definable circle, and like the aforementioned Collapse, blurring can be added as In keeping with this month's trend of expensive software, we’ll continue our quest with ADPro2.2. the latest incarnation of ASDG’s world-beating image processing software.
After installing the new version, the biggest surprise on boot-up is the interface itself which has forsaken the old style layout and adopted the MorphPlus look - no doubt in an attempt to standardise operation for those users who are lucky enough to own both MorphPlus and ADPro.
However uniformity isn't the only reason for the new look as many of the features previously only available in MorphPlus are now within the reach of ADPro owners.
The aforementioned additions primarily involve display of the rendered data opening with monitor selection whether it be PAL. NTSC.VGA or DFLT - alias your default Workbench monitor - AGA compatibility in action.
Assuming the correct monitor is in place, the next job is to choose from one of the eight available dithering methods which now include Sm Ord and Lg Ord - each of which were only previously on offer within MorphPlus.
In addition to dither selection, both the new modes and the Random dither can be further enhanced thanks to a new dithering amount requester which allows the level of effect to be set from anything from 0 to 256.
On the load and save side, things are pretty much the same as before with the exceptions being an improved Vlab and loader plus and YUVN import as standard. On the save side only one addition appears in the form of an OpalVision saver.
Moving on to the operators. OpalVision makes another appearance with an OpalPaint operator which auto-loads usually requiring one or the other to be shunted off and on screen as and when required. Notv however everything has changed and the magnifier appears within its own window which can be moved and resized just like a standard Workbench window. Better still it can be used to zoom right out to show images that are larger than the screen area.
Along with resizing and zoom, placement has been improved with arrow gadgets for minor adjustments or alternatively a small hand icon can be applied to produce a placement rectangle attached to the mouse which when clicked on-screen instantly updates the zoom window' with the new location.
Aside from the improved interface and therefore speed the organic feel of the software has been enhanced immensely. As any freehand artist will tell you, the major problem with the transition from real world art to computer-generated images is the loss in feel that pen on paper provides.
In an attempt to compensate, TVPaint
2. 0 takes full advantage of pressure-sensitive tablets and
indeed pressure in general.
Obviously not everyone can afford state-of- the-art pressure-sensitive hardware but if the money is available it would be well f IWJ G A 1 Ipd Ql fe spent. Whether or not a tablet is at hand the program can still express the touch of the artist at the controls. For those without a tablet, adding feeling can be pretty basic as the software can only apply preset pressure values at the beginning and end of a stroke, moving between the two levels as the stroke is applied.. This new attention to feel can be enhanced further courtesy of two new airbrush effects entitled chalk and pencil. The names
pretty much speak for themselves but the effect when combined with pressure can produce startling results.
DIFFERENT NOZZLES Both of these new painting options await in the airbrush requester, with all three sharing an improved spline control allowing different nozzles to be fitted to any one of the three brush types.
As before, the size and power of the brush can also be defined in percentages and tested in a small window at the bottom of the requester.
It's fairly obvious that TecSoft, the creators of TVPaint, have had a long hard look over their shoulder during the redesign and picked up a few tips from the other contendere in the 24-bit paint market such as OpalPaint, which offers scrollable display and effects such as chalk and pencil as part of its repertoire for some time.
As well as simply painting with the new' brushes, cutting has also been added and as a result defining brush transparency is a dream. Once a brush is cut from the canvas, simply adjusting the power of the airbrush defines the overall density of the brush when stamped - and of course presrequired. The last of the new arrivals offers arguably the most punter friendly operator of them all. Namely Sim- print. As you may have guessed this particular function allows the simulation of the printed page to be sent to the screen complete with the chosen dithering option.
Obviously this doesn’t take into account the idiosyncrasies of your printer but it nevertheless means reams of paper and more importantly large amounts of time can be J saved during the usual hit and miss of the pnnting process | If you're interested but can afford to wait a little ion ADPro 2.3 isn't far away and promises direct interac with Dpaint. However, if time is of the essence contt MicroPACE UK on 0753 551888. Price: 2179.99. sure control can also be applied. Although a big improvement, better brush management doesn't stop there. In feet TVPaint 2.0 is to the best of my knowledge
the only 24- bit paint package to offer classic Dpaint perspective to brushes.
Just like its predecessor, the twisting and turning of the brush is all handled by the numeric keypad with a Dpaint style bounding box showing the transition of the brushes orientation in real time.
HIGH POINTS Although packed with improvements, this has to be one of the program s high points which in one stroke will remove hours of tedious image processing from the creative process. In short it's the finishing touch to what is becoming a perfect if slightly overpriced package.

The syn- i is of n be »ss nger ebon itact Amiga £44.95 Publishing Ben Pointer demonstrates that for a very reasonabh outlay you could be producing desktop-published pages to rival the quality of this one you’re reading!
Shoestring Almost all professional desktop publishers ply their trade on Macintosh computers, and have done since desktop publishing was invented.
Even a small Mac-based DTP system is going to set you back a few thousand pounds. Those who can’t quite afford "the best" are almost always directed towards buying PC-based systems, where both the required hardware and the software are cheaper.
Can 1 tell you a quick story? A publishing firm I know well recently wanted to move from traditional publishing to desktop publishing.
They brought in a firm of consultants who told them what they needed and gave them an estimate for £50,000 based around Macintosh equipment. For that all they were getting was a couple of computers, a large networked hard disk, a scanner, high resolution laser printer and software.
So they brought in another firm of consultants, who got the cost down to £20,000 using PC-based equipment.
Now this publishing firm is also a printer and does a lot of work for me.
They knew my stuff was desktop published, so they called me to ask what I used.
"Oh? What's an Amiga?"
Using Amigas, the setup they wanted would have cost about the same as the PC-based system, but I did quickly show them how they could build two high-powered Amiga DTP workstations for under £4,000 each, workstations that could produce publications indistinguishable from anything produced on the Mac.
This gave them food for thought, and a year later they are stiU thinking.
But you don't have to spend £4,000 to produce professionally quality publications on the Amiga - it can be done for far less.
Take one cheap Amiga. An A1200 would be an ideal foundation to build upon because it has a faster processor than earlier "low-end" Amigas, but any old Amiga will do.
Why is a faster processor better?
Because many of the functions performed internally by desktop publishing programs are highly complex and can take a while to complete. A faster processor means vou won't have to stare at the clock or "sleepy" pointer for so long. If you are publishing to deadlines, time spent drumming your fingers is money down th drain.
Next, get a hard drive. It doesn't ha* to be a fast hard drive or a big hard dri i although as it is an important piece c equipment it might be better to steer cles of "bargains". Why do you need a hafl drive?
For several reasons. Firstly for sped again. You'll be loading and saving fill all the time, and these files can get quii large, so a hard drive will cut down a waiting time. Then there’s the question typefaces.
Having hundreds of them sprea across lots of floppy disks could make an particular face difficult to find. Havil them all in one place on the hard drill makes life very much easier.

• ead any ving Irive hing YOU The essential guide to what to buy
There’s not much DTP software and hardware that you can call
"cheap", so what follows is a discussion of the least expensive
options, keeping in mind that quality is important to desktop
publishing. Alas, there are no PD solutions for DTP programs,
only for typefaces and clip art.
Publishing software Of the so-called “document processors' on the market, only Wordworth 2 and Final Copy II are worth investigating. But as both of these packages cost twice as much as PageSetter3. Which is a dedicated desktop publisher that comes with an integrated wordprocessor and painting program, it doesn't make much sense to consider anything else.
PageSetter3 is essentially a "little brother" to the famous Professional Page. It directly supports Compugraphic scalable typefaces, and comes with a utility that can convert PostScript Type 1 faces into Compugraphic format It will import any IFF-ILBM graphic and also supports the Pro Draw clip format of structured drawing.
Professional Page is being sold for Just over twice the pnee of PageSetter3. But you do need a hard drive. If you don't have a hard drive and you want more power, then you must turn to PageStream, which is more expensive again Typefaces and clip art Just about every PD library has many disks full of clip art and PostScnpt Type 1 Jw create for often used layouts.
I But if you are prepared to sort out a Mkvnt floppy filing system for your vari-
* » files so that any particular file can be ¦night to hand
quickly, and if you can pr with slower loading and saving
times, you can get by without a hard drive.
You can't, however, get by without ory. Just about everything to do Bnth desktop publishing eats memory Hfce it’s going out of fashion. The Ikolute minimum amount you need [•2Mb.
With this you'll be able to produce sim- f documents of one or two pages, pro- ed you don't go too crazy with hies and typefaces. A more comforter figure is 4Mb. The more memory, the tter. If you can't afford both a hard
* and lots of memory, the memory is »more important.
The next step is software. Choosing ware is a very personal thing. It's a bit f buying clothes - what looks good on i else might make you look a right You have to keep in mind that desktop Wishing is not glorified word process- Desktop publishing programs don't rork like word processors, so whatever
* package you buy you must be pre- and Compugraphic typefaces.
For the most part these disks are poorly compiled. Often with
corrupt or missing files on them, and you will have to sort out
the mess yourself.
A few libraries take more care, for which they generally charge a little bit more.
Almost all the PD typefaces you’ll come across started life on the Macintosh and have been converted by various people to MS-DOS format files, after which venous other people have collected them on to Amiga formatted disks.
A lot of them have characters missing from the character set. Corrupted characters, only upper case characters and numbers, punctuation marks missing, no kerning information, and so on and so forth. Like a lot of other PD material, it isn’t up to professional standards, but then it costs peanuts in comparison.
If you want to "fix" any of these dodgy typefaces you'll need TypeSmith. Which costs £135.
But there are plenty of typefaces that are good enough to use as they come, and at about £10 per 100 typefaces you can't really complain, Clip art usually comes in either IFF- ILBM format, which any DTP package can handle, or Illustrator format, which only PageStream (at the time of writing) will import. There are a few PD ProDraw clip art disks, but nothing to get excited about.
On the commercial front there are thousands of professional typefaces available in either PostScript Type 1 or pared to learn how to use it.
There are a few wordprocessors that come very close to being DTP programs.
They work like wordprocessors, which makes them quicker to learn how to use, but they contain many DTP features like the ability to import pictures, draw lines and boxes, use many different scalable typefaces, format text into columns, and soon.
So you don't have to buy a "DTP" program in order to publish from the desktop, one of the so-called "document processors" may be more up Compugraphic format, but expect to pay between £30 and £50 per typeface, somefimes more.
And remember. Italic and Bold versions of a typeface are separate typefaces. So a full “type family" could cost you a few hundred pounds.
There are cheaper options, like E M Computergraphic's range of Computer Safari typefaces, which work out to between £3 and £5 each. These are mainly ‘‘fancy" typefaces, not the sort you’d publish a long body of text in, but they are of a much higher quality than PD equivalents.
Commercial clip art is thin on the ground and generally quite expensive for what you get. In the end you are probably better off with a hand scanner and a clip art "source’* book.
Hand scanners There are three choices for hand scanners: the DaataScdn Pro. The Power Scanner and the AlfaScan scanner DaataScan Pro is the cheapest and easiest to use. But lacks some of the more powerful features that the others have. The AlfaScan scanner comes with the superb Touch-Up software, which, as well as being scanning software, is a sort of black-and-white Dpaint-cum-ProDraw.
It’s brilliant for working with line art scans and produces excellent greyscales from scans of photographs. However, because of ils many powerful features, it can take quite a while to learn how to use.
The Power Scanner is a good comproyour sheet.
The two most important features you need to look for are typeface support and graphics support. Typefaces and pictures are the materials with which the desktop publisher "paints", so if the program you choose limits you in any way as to what you can and can't do with typefaces and pictures, your creativity will be caged.
Ideally you want some kind of support for PostScript Type 1 typefaces - either direct support or some means to convert this format of typeface into that used by your program - because Type 1 faces are mise between performance and price. It produces excellent greyscales and has a fair number of drawing tools for touching- up and working on line art scans.
Printing software If you want to enhance the graphics output from your printer then the choice of software is between TurboPrint and Studio.
Both will enable you to alter parameters like dither patterns, brightness, contrast and gamma, and have whatever program is doing the printing use those settings.
They are about the same price (£50).
But the difference is that TurboPrint uses its own type of non-standard printer driver whereas Studio uses 100 per cent Amiga-compatible printer dnvers.
Studio can also output in up to 256 greyscales or 16.7 million colours, whereas TurboPrint is limited to the normal Amiga restrictions of 16 greyscales and 4,096 colours.
Studio comes with drivers that enable it to work with all models of DeskJet (and compatibles) including the 500C and 550C. All LaserJets (and compatibles) including the new 400 600dpi models, and most Epson-compatible 24-pin and 48-pin dot-matrix printers, including a special mode for the popular Star SJ-48 bubble jet.
Canon bubblejets and laser printers are not catered for by Studio because there is a separate ‘CanonStudio" version of the program (actually commissioned by Canon) available at a cheaper price.
The desktop publishing "standard".
Compugraphic Intellifont support is also useful because this is the Amiga's "standard” scalable typeface format, What you don't want is "bitmap" font support.
Amiga bitmap fonts are not of a high enough quality for desktop publishing, not even on a shoestring.
As far as pictures are concerned you'll want to be able to import standard IFF- ILBM files. But these are bitmaps, and just like bitmap fonts they will print out with 1 m SB X El 9 X X Getting outside help If your pocket can't extend to arngh quality inkjet or laser printer, then you can always take your documents to a DTP bureau for pnnting.
Several options are normally available, from output on various resolutions of laser pnnter. Right up to films or bromides from an imagesetter.
Normally the bureau will want the file in a format that is readable by a Mac or PC and this means EPS. Unfortunately. PageSetter3 cannot output in this format. But i' can create PostScript files that any bureau will be able to handle and print First you'll have lo get your tiles on to MS-DOS format disks, and to do this youi need a commercial package like CrossDOS (which comes with the 1200. 4000 anc Release 2.1 upgrade kit), or a PD utility like MultiDOS. Which any library will be able tc supply you with, Pnces tor printing vary A few pages on a mono laser printer aren't going to cos* much at
all - about the same price as photocopying - whereas use of the bureau s colour PostScript pnnter will be expensive Time on an imagesetter will empty your pockets very quickly. But whatever it costs all the prices will be negotiable and will depend on what it is you want printed and how.
Much there is of it.
Most print shops are very fnendly and approachable, and if you ask them nicely the may even allow you to bring your Amiga along and hook it up to one of their printers, which will save time messing about with PostScript files and MS-DOS formatted disks The right hardware and software isn't going to turn you into a desktop publisher... 4 twlwllt ftltWf. .. | ColorQaju tn»«.tv... J jagged curv es and diagonals unless scaled down to small sizes.
So for graphics with smooth edges (like the scalable typefaces) you'll want support for some kind of "structured drawing" file format like Pro Draw clips, 1FF-DR2D or Adobe Illustrator.
Roll all these needs up in a parcel stamped "I haven't got much money", put it in the oven for 20 mins, and what you pull out will be PageSetter3.
From its sub-£50 price you'll guess that it isn't as fully-featured as the more expensive DTP systems, but it's easily as good as, and in some ways better than.
Professional Page and PageStream were a couple of years ago.
There are some other bits and bobs that a well- equipped desktop publisher shouldn't be without. A scanner. For a start. The professionals use very expensive A4 flatbed colour scanners, but with planning and ingenuity the shoestring publisher can do marvels with a cheap hand scanner.
Graphics like logos, signatures, diagrams, "clippings" from newspapers and magazines and cartoons ‘on't require a big flatbed scanner. You can get comparatively inexpensive colour hand scanners as well as mono ones.
And you need a printer, of course.
Which one? Well, 24-pins really aren't good enough for printing your creative masterpieces. Inkjet is better, and there are quite a few small inkjet printers available for about the same price as 24-pin dotmatrix printers.
But beware, the word "inkjet" doesn't mean "high resolution"; there are some cheap inkjets that are the same low resolution as 9-pin dot-matrix printers. Look for 300 or 360 dpi resolution, nothing less is good enough.
You want colour? Tch, difficult. You see, the attractivelypriced 24-pin colour dot-matrix printers are not all that they are cracked up to be.
All of them suffer to some extent from an effect known as "banding" - regular horizontal lines across printouts caused by the way these printers print, and by inaccuracies in the linefeed mechanism.
If you want to produce "finished" colour documents that are good enough to be handed out as they are or photocopied, then you'll either have to consider buying a colour inkjet printer, or use a DTP bureau. Neither option is cheap.
The Amiga's printing capabilities are actually quite limited. The quality of your printouts, particularly if they contain colours or shades of grey, can be enhanced by special printing software.
Keep in mind that no printer software is going to be able to turn a mediocre printer into a good one, but you can turn a good one into a great one - it's certainly possible using special printer software to get better looking output from a cheap inkjet than from an expensive laser printer.
So, adding up the cost of all the hardware and software discussed above, not including the cost of the Amiga (which I assume you already have) we've spent less than £1,000 and have built a DTP workstation from which you can produce documents that will hold their own with the best.
Take away the cost of the hard drive and the hand scanner, which aren't absolutely essential, and it's less than £500 - basically the cost of the software, some memory, a few typefaces, lob of blank floppy disks, and the printer.
The one thing that money can't buy is what you've got between your ears, and arguably the greatest investment you will have to make is in time - ti to learn how to use the software.] time to learn about design a typography, time to actually create y work.

to an?
Publication you can lay your hands on. I don’t mean you have to read books, I mean you should study magazine, leaflet and advertisement layouts in minute detail.
Remember design techniques that you like and try to copy them and incorporate them into your own overall designs.
Later on you might be able to afford a book or two that will tell you why certAUI things are done in certain ways, but always remember that the only reason: there are desktop publishing "rules" is so that innovative creative artists can break those rules in order to produce designs that turn heads.
Stick to the so-called rules and you'll produce professional-looking publications that anyone would be proud of - break the rules and you'll knock them cold.

DEPT (AC), 108 THE AVENUE, CLAYTON, BRADFORD, W. YORKS, BD14 6SJ ost journalists can't type properly. No, 'tis true, and it's the ease from the lowliest reporter to editors in Fleet Street.
Those high enough don't worry or don’t care, and those not quite there yet are too busy struggling up the ladder to take lowly typing lessons.
Gonna use my fingers... Typing correctly will add speed and accuracy to any keyboard user’s inputting skills. Phil Morse stretches his pinkies over the latest incarnation of the world-famous Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing tutorial package All of which is, of course, pig-headed stupidity. As the majority of us know, once you've used a keyboard for any length of time at all, you speed up consid- erablv and reach a stage where you can easily forget that you're physically typing when you're using a program requiring extensive keyboard use. The trouble is that if you attempt to up your speed, mis
takes creep in with alarming regularity.
Which is where the catchily titled Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing comes in.
Whether or not the stylish woman on the cover of the box is actually Mavis, she is currently in the homes of over a million people worldwide in her previous incarnation, and this new, updated version looks set to continue this impressive on* going lesson.
The program has two aims - to increase your typing speed, and to improve your accuracy'. It has a myriad of features and options, explained both in the very useful tutorial guide to the package and as you are actually using the lessons.
Indeed, it never asks you to do any* thing without explaining exactly why - a Word games In the Arcade section, you race against a merciless driver, but this is a racing game with a difference.
Much like childrens’ education software. Mavis Beacon utilises the “it's fun to play while you learn" ethos.
And judging by the number of grown adults I’ve seen in this office plonking pseudo-Fuzzy Felt cartoon bears onto backdrops with every happy click of the mouse, the concept indeed is as applicable to adults as to younger people.
Basically you go ahead or behind depending upon - you've guessed it
- the speed and accuracy of your typing, speed showing on the
speedometer and accuracy represented on the RPM counter on
your dashboard.
Great quasher of bored frustration (your personal level of which you can set, incidentally, depending on your degree of interest and your temper!).
Before you can begin, the program starts by asking you for a few preliminaries. As well as the usual name, it wants to know' how' old you are (presumably for choosing relevant pieces of text for you to practice on) and what your level of expertise is.
Choose Beginner and you'll be taught which fingers are used to type what and generally hand-led into the lessons. 1 started on Intermediate, which drops the "which keys, w'hich fingers" bit but is still bearably paced.
PRECIOUS TIME Most of the typing is done in the Classroom. This 4s represented on-screen by a keyboard, and a piece of “paper" on which some sample text will appear. You must type underneath the sample exactly what is written, including all the correct spacings and so on.
You have access to the usual delete functions should you make any mistakes, but you're looking for a respectable words-per-minute count, so corrections eat away valuable seconds.
At the end of a lesson, you're told your words-per-minute, your level of accuracy, and given a comment from Mavis - you can even control how talkative the woman is!
The Workshop is similar to the Classroom, except there are meters and gauges showing you all the time how you're doing. There's also a metronome for stopping yourself getting carried away and making mistakes.
All the text you practice is sourced rather than written by the programmers, and includes what the manual describes as "fascinating passages" from the likes of the Guinness Book of Records.
It also seems to have an alarming tendency to contain letters which send your fingers flying all over the keyboard - not too surprising, really. New for this issue of the software is the 10-Key (numeric keypad) teacher, which is great for prospective accountants or ambitious cashiers, but not so good for poor A600 owners. There's a game tied into it too - a checkout with goods passing which you have to type in as quickly as you can on the keypad.
As far as monitoring your progress goes, as well as graphs showing exactly how well, key by key, you’re getting on, you can get Mavis to take account of past lessons when advising and commenting, and utilise this and more comprehensive statistics to customise your own lessons, really testing where you need practice.
CONCLUSION This really is an impressive package.
It's clean, clear, colourful, intuitive and above all, one does not feel crippled using a computer to teach oneself typing, as you might suspect could happen.
It's a tribute to the programmers that one can easily get lost in practising and come out a damn sight faster and more accurate - a classic case of using your computer as a means to an end.
With the ability to "save" multiple pupils, meaning lots of people can be recognised by the same copy of the program on the same computer, and well thought-out touches - the ability' to choose spacing after full stops, for instance - this tutor deserves to go on and leach another million willing pupils how to type.
Who knows, maybe behind closed doors somewhere there's even a journalist typing to banish his or her self from the dreaded "three-finger typist" syndrome!

LONGTON, STOKE ON TRENT ST3 2PX espite the fact that the Arexx
language forms part of the Amiga's operating system software,
many Amiga users still do not use it.
Part of the trouble, from the newcomer's viewpoint, has dearly been the lack of beginner-level tutorial documentation, and the purpose of this article is to help you take some important first steps.
It's obviously not possible to deal with everything in a single article, but Amiga Computing does, of course, provide regular more advanced help through its Arexx Insight pages (see page 126).
What do you need to know about in order to jump on the Arexx bandwagon? It is an interpreted high-level programming language which shares with Basic a number of important characteristics, including the fact that it is very easy to learn. Arexx, like Basic, is also a convenient tool as far as program development is concerned.
It is possible to sit down at an Amiga, type a few lines of Arexx code, execute them and see the results, make a few changes, and immediately re-execute the program. If there are any bugs in vour code, Arexx will usually stop the program and tell you without the system crashing.
Before you can run an Arexx program you need to have the language installed on your Amiga. This brings us to a piece of software called Rexxmast which is the part of the Arexx system that must be up and running before any Arexx program can be executed. Because of this, the Rexxmast command is usually added to the startup-sequence.
REXXMAST What foxes a lot of people about Rexxmast is that it runs as a background process so there are no visible indications that the program is active. Rexxmast does, in fact, open a small window to introduce itself as it starts up, but this window disappears after a few seconds.
In reality Rexxmast, despite the absence of any visible signs, hangs around in memory waiting to execute any Arexx programs that come along.
Although Rexxmast acts as Arexx's “master controller" it does not work completely alone. For reasons of efficiency much of Arexx has been implemented as a "shared library" called rexxsyslib, and one of the first things that Rexxmast does is to look in the current LIBS: director)’ to make sure its library' is available.
To create an Arexx program you use a text editor. Arexx doesn't provide a specialist editor because it has been designed to wdrk with ordinary Ascii text files, the ones written by all conventional text editors.
You can use AmigaDOS's ED program, MEMACS, or your favourite wordprocessor providing it can create plain Ascii text files without embedded control characters.
So to create an Arexx program you simply load your favourite text editor, type in the program, and save the text file. From this moment your program will be ready to run.
There are two basic ways in w-hich Arexx may run its programs. Firstly some other application may talk to Arexx and effectively say "please run this Arexx program for me". Such programs could be Arexx scripts you have written or they made easy If you’ve been tempted to get into Arexx programming but have not known where to start, now is your opportunity, as Paul Overaa provides a lucid introduction to this useful language ?
Could be scripts provided as part of some other package.
Either way, these programs are called Arexx macros and they are used to add new facilities to some main applications program, such as a spreadsheet, database or wordprocessor.
Powerful extra features It is, of course, also possible to create standalone Arexx programs, that is ones which can be executed independently. In these cases a separate Arexx system command called RX is needed to kick off the program.
For this reason RX is usually placed in the Amiga's command (C:) directory so that it is available along with all of the other Amiga system commands. To run a script file from a Cll Shell window you just type RX followed by the program name. For instance: f rx ttit.rm would cause Arexx to load and run the program called test.rexx. It is not strictly necessary to type the .rexx filename extension when running Arexx programs via the RX program because RX itself will, if it fails to find the program name as given on the command line, re-try to find the program after automatically adding
.rexx to the end of the name.
Standalone Arexx programs are not, incidentally, required to have a .rexx name extension but it is a common practice because it helps such scripts to be identified from Arexx macros and programs written in other languages.
Macros, again by convention, tend to be given names which relate to the applications programs that they are used with.
Let's assume then that you have Rexxmast up and running, have loaded your text editor, and are now ready to start programming. As you read through the following examples try typing them in, saving the text file, and then using the RX program to run them from a CLI Shell window: ? Exiaplel.rcxi * sty 'His is ay first Hen program' Arexx programs must always start with a comment enclosed between * and
* character pairs. Since a comment must be present, use it for
something useful, What else does Arexx offer? Well, for
starters it allows you to write functions with their own local
variables, offers a whole range of arithmetic logic opera
tions and provides both simple and compound variables which
allow arrays and Other data Structures to be created.
Error-trapping and in-built interactive tracing via a separate trace window is available (making it possible to keep program trace messages well away from normal program output) as well as interrupt mechanisms, powerful string handling and string parsing functions.
There's no way we can even begin to list all its facilities let alone give examples of them but here’s one more snapshot of the language.
Arexx, like Basic, provides easy to such as the name of the program.
Say is a keyword which is roughly equivalent to Basic's Print statement and in this case I’ve used it to print some static text (delimited by single or double quotes).
The Arexx equivalent of the Basic Input statement, which can be used to collect some input from a user, is Parse Pull, and so if we wanted the program to ask for, and print, the user's name we would do it like this: * EmpleZ.rtxx - mother liiple Areix prograa *1 sty ’Uhit is your mie' parse pull naae say naae Despite some general similarities between Basic and Arexx it's obvious that differences do exist. To start with even though we are dealing with text strings we have not had to explicitly indicate that the Arexx variable name is used to hold a text string.
The reason for this is that Arexx variables are essentially typeless and so do not have to be declared. If in fact and you wrote these Arexx statements: r-n say ity Arexx would know that it was dealing * Eia»ple8.rm • aniials. = 'I do not know anything about these mints' aniials.cat » 'cats have four legs and they cannot fly' aninals.dog = 'dogs have four legs and they cannot fly' aniials.horse « 'horses have four legs and they cannot fly1 aniials.huaan = 'huians have two legs and they cannot fly1 aniials.tiger = 'tigers have four legs and they cannot fly' use loop facilities and the
fprogram shown above Example8.rexx, uses a loop to collect input items from the user in order to identify the location of an item stored in a compound variable.
There's not the space to go into detail with numbers and would provide 48 as the answer. If therefore you wished to write an A*Rexx program that converted feet into inches Vou Could do it like this: * E»aiple3.reix - converts feet to inches » say 'Mow iany feet' perse pull feet say 'This is ' feet*12 ' fetches' Arexx does not however always react in the way you might expect. Consider these two programs: * EmpleCrtxx * say 'Hello' • ExaipleS.rexx V say Hello Example4.rexx prints the Hello text aS written but with Example5.rexx the result is that the uppercase HELLO is produced.
Why? It's because quotes were not placed around "Hello” so Arexx assumed that Hello was a variable rather than a text string.
Now you might think that since Arexx has regarded Hello as a variable, and since this variable was not initialised (ie explicitly set to any initial value) that Arexx would either report some form of error saying that an uninitialised variable had been used, or would possibly print a null string, ie nothing.
In fact Arexx does something com- aniials.zebra = 'zebras have four tegs and they cannot fly' options proipt 'Hhat sort of aninl do you wish to know about ? ' say '6tve ae the naie of an aniial and 1 wilt try and tell you' say 'soiething about it...1 parse pull itei * get first itea * do while iten*==" say aniials.itei parse pull itea • get next itei * end about how compound variables work so just run the program and think about the potential benefits of a language that allows you to use text string variables to identify elements in array type structures!
Pletely different again - it automatic initialises the variable to the name of variable itself! Arexx uses upperca characters for its keywords, variables other labels so the program's Hello vr able, as far as Arexx is concerned, is variable HELLO.
You can easily prove that Arexx treating Hello as a variable by setting it another value and re-displaying its c tents. For instance, the program: * Exmplei.rexi * say Hello Hello='A Hew Teit String1 say Hello would produce as output the text "HELLO" followed by "A New Text String”!
Arexx always looks at the contents of its variables just prior to using them and providing those contents are valid for the type of operation being performed Arexx will carry out the specified operation.
It cannot however do the impossible and so if, for example, you attempt to carry out an arithmetic operation on a text string Arexx will stop your program with an "arithmetic conversion" error message.
These errors can easily occur if you, inadvertently fail to explicitly initialise a variable which is subsequently used to hold a number: I* cxaipl*7.rm - a conon slip » say x*2 Because x was not explicitly initialised Arexx set it to the uppercase string X. Since adding two to a text string is not a valid operation Arexx reports an error.
There is of course far more to Arexx than we've mentioned in this article including a whole range of in-built functions. Powerful external function libraries which can add Intuition window links, extra maths functions and so on are also available and the language itself has a whole range of other advanced goodies to offer, For now though we've just got time to mention the one area where Arexx will be FROM THE SPECIALISTS SOFTWARE PACK - FROM SILICA ZOOL ii the sottwere peck of the year.

There is, believe it or not, an area of Arexx programming that involves program statements that have no meaning to Arexx itself which has arisen because of the way Arexx behaves when finding such statements, In short it assumes that they are commands intended for another application and transmits them to a program whose destination has been determined by specifying a current host address (this is a public message port managed by the host application).
All programs that provide Arexx interfaces set up their own, uniquely named, ports and it is through these entities that data gets passed. Arexx contains an Address command that allows the current host address to bo specified.
Why is it useful to have this type of inter-program communication? One reason is that it allows you to create Arexx macro programs for adding extra facilities to other programs (thereby increasing their power).
More to the point you can do it, if you learn how to write your own macros, in a way which suits your needs! Here's a simple example. The SAS text editor provides an Arexx command set.
Some of the commands mimic menu operations; BM for instance selects Block Menu operations and since a Ucx command refers to character x, transmitting BM UCE is like selecting End in the Block Menu, and transmitting BM UCB like selecting Beginning.
The commands mentioned above just cause the editor to do a particular job but other commands, such as the GL (get line number) and GT (get text line) produce results that can be sent back to an Arexx macro.
In this case it is the responsibility of the macro code to collect those results and the SAS editor uses the standard convention of providing results in such a way that Arexx can place them in its RESULT variable (the Arexx OPTIONS RESULTS instruction is used to force Arexx to look for these results).
To ask the editor to send the current line of text to a macro we might use this type of code: options results ¦GT' teit-f«sult Used in conjunction with the Block Menu commands even these simple editor commands can achieve a lot. You might for instance use a loop to read lines from a block of text into a variable and add line numbers to them in such a way that empty lines get disregarded.
Such a macro could be tied to an Amiga function key so that if, for example, I had marked out this text block: PROGRAM AND SCREENS COPYRIGHT 1992 BY ASDG INCORPORATED IINAIITMrtRI7Ff) ONPl ICATION IS EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED
• This is just a test to shou kow a 'non null* line numbering
¦aero light Mork I'd just need to hit the appropriate func
tion key in order to intelligently number the text lines of the
block like this... 1: This is just a test 2: to show hou a 'non
null1 3: line numbering 4: aacro aigkt work Packages like
Prowrite use similar ideas when tying macros to function keys
but the commands themselves are of course totally different to
those used by the SAS editor!
In fact it is just this sort of variation that confuses many Arexx newcomers - they think that a package's Arexx interface facilities should somehow follow Arexx’s The mists of time___ Let’s get some historical stuff out of tht ] way. Arexx is the Amiga version REXX a programming language dev oped a little over ten years ago by i chap called Mike Cowlishaw at IBM.
To Cut a long story short Bill Hawes took the REXX language definition and 1 produced an Amiga version calle Arexx. Five years later Commodo added their support by including Arexi as part of the Workbench 2 system software.
Syntax rules. They don't - the syntax « the commands sent to other programs 1 little or nothing to do with Arexx it* and in fact all Arexx really needs to 1 when it encounters commands an decides to transmit them to an exter host is where those external command should be sent.
The important point about all of this i that every Arexx product will in fact hav its own specialised set of command which it only will understand. More to t point, the extent of the facilities offere will depend on what the originator of t product decided to include.
The bottom line is that being told that a ] piece of software has an Arexx interfa means nothing unless you know exactl what facilities the developer has provided 1 How do you know what types of Arexx ] goodies will be offered with particuL packages?
You have to consult the manuals of the 1 products concerned. Needless to say this information will not mean that much I unless you are reasonably Arexx commu-1 nications literate. This is one very good | reason for jumping on the Arexx band* j wagon as soon as possible!
The written word Using Arexx on The Amiga By Chris Zamara and Nick Sullivan Published by Abacus. Price £29.95 (including disk) This is a good all round Arexx book which is particularly suitable for beginners. It covers the main characteristics of the language, provides a good reference section, and has lots of examples and tutorial dis- cussions. For ______ details contact DTBS Books on 0706 715028.
The Arexx Cookbook By Merill Callaway Published by Whitestone. Price: £24,95 (including disk 1 £29.95, including disks 1 and 2 £34.95) This book is aimed at the more ambitious Arexx programmer and, since you will not find the usual mtroductory-style lists of Arexx instructions and function definitions, access to other Arexx literature is essential.
Content-wise the book scores highly and there are good accounts of all the standard topics including file handling, the use of Arexx’s powerful string functions and the use of Arexx s sophisticated string parsing facilities.
There is also a good chapter on using Arexx and PostScript, and a useful appendix on using Arexx with Art Department Professional. There are a great many examples and as an added bonus the author makes a point of gening across lots of useful programming style tips.
Not for complete beginners but an excellent book for competent coders moving to Arexx from other languages! For details contact PremierVision on 071-274 4407.
Mastering Amiga Arexx by Paul Overaa Published by Bruce Smith Books.
Price: £21.95 (including disk) This recently published book is my own Arexx offering and is split into three j main sections. Part one provides a tutorial introduction to the language; part two covers the Arexx communications issues from a pure “user’s" viewpoint: and part three tackles some of the underlying technical issues.
The first two parts (which constitute the bulk of the bOQk) are aimed at anyone, including the beginner, who wants to learn about Arexx.
Part three, which has been included for the benefit of more experienced programmers, provides details of both how the Arexx communications mechanisms work and how Arexx interfaces can be added to your own programs. For details contact BSB Books on 0923 894355.

- l.tuiebUu Later this year one of our readers will be invited to
go on a holiday of a lifetime
- to just about anywhere in the world* It could see you basking
in the Bahamas, or cruising in the Caribbean. It could be
ambling around Australia, or night-clubbing in New York.
Even trekking in Tibet, or pottering around the Pyramids. Literally, the world is your oyster !
It could be a holiday for one. Or for a whole family. Just as you wish
- providing the total cost comes to no more than £3,000.
How do you go about winning such a fantastic invitation? Simply by completing the coupon opposite and handing it in to your newsagent. He will then enter It for this unique competition, in time for the draw which will take place on July 12.
If you win you will be asked to select the holiday of your choice from any you see on offer - either nationally advertised or available from your local travel agent. There will be absolutely no restriction on the location, or the company you choose to provide the holiday.
It will be entirely up to you to decide which is the right holiday to suit your tastes.
And that's not all. As a thank you to your own newsagent, we will also be sending him two free tickets for a fabulous holiday in Paris, staying at a top hotel, going on a grand sightseeing tour and taking in a spectacular show at an exotic night club!
AND IF YOU WIN, THERE’S A HOLIDA WHICH MAGAZINE FOR YOU?.
ACORN - One of Britain's longest-running computer magazines, Acorn Computing (£2.95) is the pre-eminent choice for users of the Archimedes and BBC Micro.
COMMODORE - Three magazines serve the dedicated Amiga fraternity. For games players there is Amiga Action (£3.95) and Amiga Force (£1.95), while Amiga Computing (£199) covers every aspect of this versatile machine. Owners of the C64 will find all they need in Commodore Force (£2.95). ATARI - For the Atari ST enthusiast there are three magazines - ST Action (£3.95) for gamers, with Atari ST User (£.3.40) and Atari ST Review (£3.50) satisfying the more general ST owner.
NINTENDO - The whole of the ever-expanding Nintendo scene is covered by N-Force (£. 1.95), while dedicated fans of the Super NES have Super Action (99p) and for Game Boy freaks there's GB Action (99p).
PC - Most dynamic newcomer on the PC magazine scene is PC Home (£3.95), covering both business and leisure interests.
PC Today (£3.95) is devoted to supplying practical solutions for the small businessman.
SEGA - All the Sega games machines have their champion in Sega Force (£1.95), with Mega Acuon (99p) serving the needs of Mega Drive owners (to be launched on May 20).
I wish to place a regular order for the magazine(s) I have ticked below: Please enter this form in the Europress Dream Holiday Competition G Acorn Computing ? N-Force G Amiga Action ? Sega Force “1 Amiga Computing G SLAction ? Amiga Force G ST Review G Atari ST User G Super Action 0 Commodore Force G PC Today ? GB Action O PC Home ?

* vvT Discovery off the Atom v1.5 Paul Matthews This multimedia
presentation, which comes on two disks and really does need two
drives to run with any degree of fluidity, is an educational
look at the development of atomic physics, from the early
I9th centurv pioneers who laid down the foundations to the
current day, taking in the horrors of Hiroshima - among other
things - on the way.
Very well presented, with a couple of atoms spinning around an electron as a lit- A gallery of the early nuclear pioneers tie piece of "animated clip-art" adorning every contents index page, this program uses many techniques to involve the user and stave off boredom - none of which are at the expense of a good deal of technical This month s brace of sit-back-and- watches takes us first to Japan, and the Japanime Motion Picture from Pathfinder PD. After a quite amusing dig at the Amstrad CPC computer range in its opening segment, it moves on to a slideshow animation featuring the characters
from, presumably, a comic or cartoon. They're i accuracy. There are pictures of the pioneers, diagrams, even an animated nuclear explosion, and it's generally extremely well put together.
In some places there arc a few too many pages of plain text, but overall this is a bold and successful attempt to bring an involved subject closer to the pupil.
J t r-.-4. “7“ yS* m .j..... As the program takes no moral stance (something which would be all too easy to do considering the tens of thousands who died at Hiroshima) it couldn't be accused of bias in either direction, so would be a good educational tool for schools and colleges.
Arcade Classics Vol 1 Carl Harper Look at this list for a who's who of early arcade games - Asteroids, Centipede, Calaxians, Pacman (whoops, I mean Munchman), Missile Command, and, of course, Space Invaders. They're all on one all well drawn, colourful, and presented originally and engagingly.
The camera moves from one part of a still to another, people turn their heads to look at you, and generally it’s been constructed to try and relieve the tedium of watching completely static slide after completely static slide.
The characters are coherent in The lapanlme Motion Picture disk, too. However, as with most of th games compilations, the quality does van quite a bit from game to game.
At the top of the rung we hard Centipede, or Centepede as the programmers call it, which - despite its rather I putting horizontally scrolling starred background - is a fun interpretation of original, with all the usual mushrooms bouncing frogs (in space?) And the like. M keep your finely digitised ship right in thd thick of it At the other end of the scale id Galaxians, or Girl Actions, which isd blockv and jumpy version of the original!
With laughably out of place sound effects. ] The others are in-between these twoj and taken as a whole the disk provides a I « • • and Visions looks, too, reminding me simultan* ously of the Battle of the Planets anc Muskehounds cartoon crews! Tht whole thing kept me happy, and for someone whose knowledge of currem comics stretches as far as, and nc further than, The Freak Brothers that’s quite a feat.
Next up is an animation in the clas sic sense of the word - you know takes absolutely ages to load, turns out to be about a second long... Actually, this is very good indeed the best I've seen in a number of months. It's Charley Cat V - Snow Joke, and it comes from Roberta Smith PD on two disks.
With a title from an old Goon show- one might have started to worry, but this turns out to be one of the best examples Of what the Amiga is capable of. It features the now-familiar (tc great many moments for sitting back, smiling a world-weary smile and drifting away into a long-lost youth. Or something like that.
Arcade Classics 2 Carl Harper Not as prolifically populated with oldies as the first volume, this disk does nevertheless contain some gems. No prizes for guessing what Squamble is, and this version has the added attraction of a musical soundtrack composed by Teijo Kinnumen of OctaMED-authoring fame.
Rather crudely put together despite that, it manages to retain some of the feel of the original horizontal scroller.
No oo The same can be said of Donkey Kong and this disk’s version of Frogger - both are actually poorer than the arcade originals (if my memory serves me well) yet both bring back memories of those days when games were, well, simple... Tables Test Charles Denison Hands up if you can guess what this one's about! We all have to learn them at some stage, and this program might just make it easier for any young children in your life to get through those dreaded tables tests.
It's a simple, colourful educational game - the computer asks the child which table is to be tested, and then poses a number of questions - simple "What is 5 x 6?" Types, which, depending upon the answer given, elicit a sunny, balloon-filled summer scene, complete with jolly music and sound effects, or alternatively a dark screen peppered with ugly frogs anyone who s seen any of the first four, any way) Charlie and his girlfriend on a bit of a winter sports holiday.
Unfortunately, as always seems lo be the way in cartoons.
Charlie's archenemy Tiger has come along too. And s hell-bent on mak mg things decidedly sticky for poor Charlie and girlfriend.
The animation - although limited to an extent by the Amiga’s hardware - is great and the scenery is very colourful.
The sound effects and music - appearing for the first time in a Charlie animation - are really atmospheric and add a great deal, and the whole product s a shining example of imagination 3nd practical know-how on the part of Antony Whittaker, the programmer, Interestingly. Antony has retained and finished off with the "Quack quack!"
From Radio l's "Quack quack oops!" Jingle - punishment indeed!
I'm not sure if this would hold a child's attention for long enough to do some real teaching, but it'd certainly be great for last-night revision before a tables test.
A little more variety in what is to be questioned would be nice, as would a slightly more comprehensive statistics, but as it stands it's a useful little tutor.
Bat 'o' Boons S S Teague This is a really dcver little game. The best games always tend to be based around a simple idea, and nowhere does this philosophy seem to prove itself more than in copyright on the characters while making the game public domain - a smart move, judging by their quality.
If you're going to buy just one of the animations we've covered in the last three months, buy this one PLRVER 1 Bin PLRVER 2 SCORE 'O r SCORE 50 ft KHNS Bat n ball spectacular In Bat o Room the public sector.
Basically there are two baseball bats, made a little cuter by the addition of a pair of eyes on each, which you have to use to hit balls - of which there are plenty dotted around - into nets.
If there is only one player, the computer will take over the spare bat, but this game really should be played with two.
It’s akin to the kind of frantic games you see on children's action shows, involving lots of frantic shouting and barrels of laughter - or at least, it was when we played it!
The nets move up and down each side of the screen to makes things a little awkward for you, and there are the usual selection of power-ups and bonuses to help stop you getting bored.
Available as licenceware directly from the author at present (address at end), this is one of the best Amos games I've I seen in quite a while.
Supersound vB.2 KBE Software This packed (99 per cent full) disk contains what is claimed to be the very best PD sampling software available for the Amiga. It certainly looks thorough before you've even loaded it, with a proper installation program and documentation.
It continues to be impressive after loading, ditching the polished, sleek but ultimately counter-productive flashiness of programs such as AMAS, and instead presenting a no-nonsense interface packed with useful features and arranged in as uncluttered and functional way as possible.
All the usual features are there - you can sample in mono or stereo, load and save samples in a variety of formats, enjoy full cut and paste editing - even keep track of how many hours you've been hunched over your monitor fine-tuning that elusive sample by virtue of the clock and alarm!
It has not one but two effects menus, positively bristling with goodies such as an effect called Metallic and another (no guesses what this one does) called Bass Boost. There are more effects here that PD, please!
If you’re a library, and individual, hell if you're a director of ICI, I care not - just send me any PD you may have written acquired stolen magicked from nowhere and I'll judge it solely on its quality and who knows, you could be reading about your own program right here next month.
If you do decide to submit work, please state clearly on the disk label exactly what it's called, who it's from and a contact address phone number. State all the same information on any printed material you send, too.
Do this and your disk will stand a much better chance of being reviewed. Now get those thinking caps on and those fingers a-tapping.

London NW118JE S S Teague, 50 Winstam Road.
Trevethan. Pontepool NP4 8E2 but even this gets boring after a while.
On the plus side, there are some amufl ing weapons and bonuses knocking about, and the music - understated underground dancey stuff - is certaiflH listenable.
If you’re a Pacman freak, you'll have m have it whatever, though, won't you?
Were. At the start of each screen - and there are 25 to battle through - Super Pacman flies onto the maze, but from then on in it's pretty standard Pacman stuff, only more pedestrian, due in part to the small graphics and in part to the slowness of the game.
There's very little arcade tension and the adrenalin doesn't take much of a hammering at all. Still, you can pick up guns and fill the ghosties full of lead, which is, of course, too unfeasible to be sick.
Super Pacman takes Munchland Deja Vu Starts impressively, does this Pacman- variant, with a look at Super-Pacman (normally a "mild mannered reporter" - shouldn't that be janitor?), a peek at his arch-enemy of the Munchie ghost world, and a flash of his licence to kill, as it extremely high standard. The author compares his program to Jesus on Es. The now near-legendary dance double-disk demo, and the similarity is certainly there, although this is arguably even better.
The graphics are pretty stunning - all fast-moving, stroboscopic and generally mind’altering stuff. There are touches of humanity in there too (dancers, the way the beat is indicated as being about to change tempo onscreen) - what more do you want?
It's well mixed, the graphics are excellent, so get a copy and get it looping in the corner at your next party.
You know it makes sense!
Finally, if you’ve got something musical and original, send it to me. Oh. And if you think it s good enough for me to pretend I didn't just say “original”, send it anyway Laters!
Because to my ears it bears more than a slight relationship to the opening minute or so of New Order's ‘Subculture', but no tune is really bad.
If you’re looking for an example of what you should, with some practice and a modicum of talent, be able to achieve on the Amiga using just its internal sounds, this is a typically inspiring collection. It certainly inspired our fine- tuned jury, who voted a big “Yes!'*.
They’d also have voted “Yes!” for the next demo, and in fact they probably did. But the mechanical onslaught of Continental Tech Dance - Mayday Resistance (Bus Stop PD) droned out all their mumblings good and proper Musically this disk contains deep, uncompromising European techno, as fresh as it is exciting, and of an Two music disks particularly stood out this month, both very different from each other.
Let s start on the mellower side of things, with Quadriga Acoustic Silence from Pathfinder PD. This disk, which is very nicely presented, starts with a menu which - among other mainly superfluous options - allows you to choose which of the six tunes contained therein you wish to listen to.
The quality of presentation shines through in such things as bars to tell you how long until a file is dearchived and ready to play, or the timer telling you.
CD-style, how much of the track currently playing is left, and even a cheeky little Garfield whose appearance frankly baffles me. But there you have it.
The sound quality is well up to standard, and the tunes themselves - although far from original - are well put together and pleasant, if decidedly ‘computery” in their feel.
“Eternal Sensation" is one of my favourites, if only Super Pacman has a wide variety of baddies most commercial packages!
It's a great program, but remember, unless you simply want to mess around with previously recorded samples, you're going to need some sampling hardware to plug into your Amiga.
Still, at this price you're probably best buying a sampler (they always come with their own software) and trying Supersound v3.2 against the software sup* plied - you might just find yourself switching.

set out in a worksheet called "budget" and located in DHO:Household, you would add the tooltype: F!LERARE:DH0:MOUSEHOLD BUD6ET Maxiplan would from this point on load the worksheet every time it booled.
One other common problem encountered by users of Workbench 2,0x and above is that the palette tool supplied with Maxiplan crashes when run.
To change colours on a Workbench 2.0x machine, delete the palette tool and copy your own palette utility from the Workbench prefs drawer to the Maxiplan disk.
Baffled by the PCMCIA cards Ql’m very confused about the use of PCMCIA cards on the CDTV. After reading your reply to D Madeley in issue 57 I phoned Commodore Germany. I reached their technical hotline and they confirmed your answer - yes. The credit card slot on the CDTV is a standard PCMCIA slot.
This in mind I phoned Silica and ordered a 4Mb card. After receiving the card it did not fit into my CDTVs slot because it was too thick at the back, so I contacted Silica again and they told me that the CDTV can only use Personal Memory Cards and CDTV software must be specifically written to support them, so they refunded my money.
I phoned Commodore again and this time I reached someone who claimed to be responsible for the technical aspects of the CDTV. She told me that the credit card slot on the CDTV was developed earlier than the PCMCIA slot on the A600 and therefore couldn't use cards developed for the A600.
The only possibility to upgrade to more RAM was an internal expansion from a company m Berlin which costs £250.
However, a lew days ago I saw a 256k RAM card in a shop. It had the same connector as a PCMCIA card and the shopkeeper insisted that it would work with CDTV. Sadly, there was no way of testing it as he didn't have a CDTV. Please tell me if there is any way to get these PCMCIA cards to work on the CDTV. I want to upgrade to more memory and I don't want to pay £250.
Uwe Recknagel, Bochum, Germany A Having been wrongly informed that new CDTVs were being shipped with standard PCMCIA slots, we trudged off on a telephonic trek in search of the truth about CDTV. First stop Commodore, who seemed reticent about the whole thing. The technical department scratched their collective heads for a while then confirmed that the CDTV slot is an old pre-PCMCIA Fujitsu slot and has not been changed.
Next it was off to Fujitsu, and after going through two different offices and two Of their biggest dealers, the answer was that we were talking about an old format which noone knew anything about. As far as the outside world is concerned, if it's not PCMCIA, then it just isn't kosher.
Silica eventually furnished the only positive help, though you might find it a little expensive. The Personal Memory Cards for CDTV come in two flavours, 64k priced at £75 and 256k for a whopping £229.
Instalment plan Q After buying issue 58 of your excellent magazine I was very pleased to see Maxiplan 4 on the CoverDisk. I already had a very' old copy of the program which, annoyingly, wouldn't work on my accelerated A50Q Plus.
I eagerly booted up ready to install the newer version 4, up came Workbench, in went Maxiplan. What, no install script?
'Oh, well," I thought, perhaps it doesn't need one, so I just copied the relevant files across to my hard drive, then ran the program.
Excellent! It runs, but requesterx keep coming up asking me to put Maxiplan4 in my drive, and the loading requester will not change from the default. Also, the help function doesn't work.
Please tell me how to install the program properly. I've tried everything I can think of, including assigning, paths, and looltypes, and I'm at my wit's end.
Martin Grundy, Tarn worth A | Ok, one final sorry to everyone for no putting our own hard drive install script on the Maxiplan 4 I disk. Wc went out of our way to pack as much Its possible onto the single disk that there wasn't the room.
. To ensure the trouble-free operation of i Maxiplan 4 on hard drive, bool first from your vrmal system partition, insert the Maxiplan Drive rip-off a Recently, I accidentally damaged the interna) floppy dnve on my four-month old Amiga A600.
And as the damage was caused by myself, repair is not covered by the warranty scheme.
I have telephoned numerous dealers for a replacement but have been informed tftat one ts not available.
My biggest shock was yet to come, however, when I telephoned the Commodore spares desk to be told a replacement was available from them for $ 181.66 plus VAT. I could not afford this sum and on principle wouldn't pay nearly £214 for a dnve when the computer itself s retailing for about £250.
Unless you, your readers, or your advertisers can help, I am stuck with a 'edundant computer.
K Shaw. Wigan A You seem to have been told a load of old tosh. The dnve fitted to the A600 is usually a standard Chmon 3.5in of exactly the same type as that fitted to the rest of the range with the exception of the A4000.
This means that you can buy a replacement floppy from the usual sources and fit n yourself in five minutes flat.
Total cost should be a lot less than you have been quoted, a typical example being the Power Computing replacement rtemal floppy which retails for £45.
CoverDisk in any drive, double click on the disk icon, then drag the Maxiplan drawer icon to the hard drive partition in which you'd like to store it.
Once this is accomplished, add the following Assign statement to your startup-sequence: ASSICN IUX1HM: biiO: where uv assume that DHO; is the partition into ivhich the Maxiplan drawer has just been dragged. Obviously, if you dragged it into a partition called WORK:, the assign would go something like: ASSIfiH NAXIPLANA: HOIK: fust make sure that MAXIPLAN4: is the directory or partition containing the Maxiplan drawer. Next, copy the Explode.library from the Maxiplan disk to your LIBS: directory using the command: COPT IIAI1PLANA;LIBS EIPLOIEAlBtART TO LIBS: Unfortunately, the Explode.library
will fail to initialise itself when transferred to hard drives running under any Workbench prior to 2.04, a bug which is both baffling and irritating.
It can be fixed by copying a file found on this month's CoverDisk to the C: directory of your hard drive. To do this, boot from your hard drive, then type: COPT K61:C EXPI0»» TO C: and insert the line: RUM 111: OIL: C:EXPL0A» close to the beginning of your startup- sequetice. Sorry for the hassle, folks, but this is a problem we didn't spot on the CoverDisk.
Once the above steps have been followed.
Maxiplan will ivork fine, as will the help function, and the program will be able to find its default worksheets directory.
There does not appear to be a way to change the default directory, but by adding a tooltype to the program icon, it is possible to load a default worksheet. So for example, if your Pounding on the power al have had an A500 for about three years now and over this time I've expanded it with some additional hardware, including two external drives, a RAM expansion. Philips monitor, sound sampler, and so on.
About two months ago I experienced some trouble with my standard PSU. It gave power on turning on, but not enough, I think, because the power light on my computer stayed off and wouldn’t go on until I'd pounded or stamped on the ¦ TECHNICAL HELP PSU. After some time the PSU was completely dead so I went out and bought a replacement, also standard. I know you'll sav go out and get a heavier duty power supply, but I've never had problems with my standard unit in the past.
My next question is about my printer, a Commodore MPS1500C. Is there a printer driver available for it, and if so where can 1 get it? Pm using an Epson driver now, but with some programs I must change the printer settings first or I get double spacing or no colours.
Ton von Neijhof, Den Haag, Holland 0 Probably what happened to your power supply was that it just died of old age. These things happen, and given that it was powering more peripherals than it was designed to, its life expectancy had probably been reduced.
Printer drivers for the MPS1500C must exist somewhere, but I've not been able to locate one in the office. Workbench certainly doesn’t haw one as standard, but PD libraries or a large bulletin board should be able to supply the driver for a small fee.
Task alerts I have an A500 Plus with GVP hard drive and until recently 1 have been designing custom pointers, changing default fonts, mucking about with the palette and so on using the Workbench 2.04 prefs programs.
However, every time I now load the palette, pointer, or WBPattern programs I get a recoverable alert.
If I boot from the original Workbench floppy I can load all the prefs programs from my hard drive. Do I have a problem with my startup-sequence, or have the recent changes that 1 have made to my DH0:Fonts drawer had a detrimental effect?
Fattie returns Further to a letter in the January issue, you say a Fatter Agnus chip is needed for an Amiga to operate in the USA due to the difference between PAL and NTSC.
Does the A500 Plus have a Fatter Agnus fitted and if not how complicated would one be to install? Would there be any advantage in an A500 Plus in fitting the Pro Agnus or Obese Agnus chip? Is the A1200 PAL to NTSC compatible without the need of extra chips?
I have been waiting patiently for months to see this question answered in magazine letters pages.
W Ford, Kim Dunoon Your wait appears to be over. The A500 Plus is fitted with Agnus chip number 8372B, which is otherwise called Super Agnus and is superior to the Fatter Agnus chip found in older machines.
There is therefore no need to install one or to bother with the Pro Agnus kit. As the latter type of peripheral simply involves fitting a Super Agnus and an extra wodge of chip RAM.
The advantage in having a Super Agnus is that the A500 Plus can address 2Mb of chip RAM as opposed to the 1Mb limit of the Fatter Agnus. Chip RAM is the area which the custom chips store their data. As chip memory is thus the only place in which sound and graphics can be stored, it is always a good idea to have more of it.
The At200 has an altogether new graphics chip called Alice, which is 32-bit and is responsible for many of the enhanced graphics to be found on AGA machines.
Oh, and in reply to John Gray of London in issue 56, if he places PP as the line just prior to the Endcli command at the end of the startup-sequence, preceded immediately by the line: FAILAT 110 he will find that PP runs quite happily.
K W Thornton, Convey Island i We've messed about with one of our | machines all morning in an attempt ' to recreate your problem, doing everything from deleting prefs settings to deliberately corrupting them and getting rid of essential libraries, but no recoverable alerts.
Possibly the only quick remedy would be to copy the Prefs Env-Archive drawer across to your hard drive in its entirety, replacing the existing drawer.
This will wipe out any changes you have made, so you might want to keep a copy of the drawer for future use in case this doesn't work.
Monitor mayhem Ql recently bought an A1200, and borrowed a VGA monitor from a friend so that I could try out the screen modes I'd heard so much about.
When 1 finally sorted out a connector, however (and this took long enough), I was disappointed to find that many of the screen modes don't work.
Why? Is it the monitor - an unbadged PC SVGA type - or the A1200? Can my third party monitor adapter be at fault?
Kevin Gruecock, Norwich A The VGA monitor you are using probably has a narrow band width and syncs to only a narrow range of signals. The VGA standard fits this, but many of the Amiga's screen modes - and it has many more than the PC - vary greatly from Hie 31-35kHz area in which most VGA signals can be found.
For complete compatibility, the expensive Commodore I960 monitor is a good bet, or you could hang on for one of Hie third-party monitors which should be appearing soon. Gasteiner, for example, are releasing a range of Al200-specific monitors, and a new range of Commodore multisyncs is on the way.
If you persist with the VGA monitor for the moment, try experimenting with the different monitor types found in the Extras3.0:S torage Monilors drawer. VCA Multiscan is a good start, but there are others which might yield better results with a bit of experimenting, CLI (again) Over the past few years since buying my WB1.3 A500, a few problems seem to crop up regularly, mainly when using the CLI.
First, do the examples in the PD C Manual II compile using North C vl.3? I have the original C Manual and was considering getting the new version, but Amiganuts state in their catalogue disk that there are difficulties compiling the examples without Lattice SAS C. Can you redirect output from a CLI Shell window to an existing CLI Shell window?
Is it possible to put two commands on the same line, say, by using: Dir DFO: [Ctrl-i (new line! CD DFO: This would be very helpful for certain l lo room 1 have an A600 standal pack and I have a few p lems with my Workbench the Shell on it. When Workbench up and tells you how much memory left, the figures in the manual are ti different to the numbers on mine, w1 are 870327 graphics memory and other memory.
Also, I can't make a new directory the disk. I type the proper command the Shell and the computer tells me *’ Workbench is full. Could you solve problem?
Daniel Janas, S A Your memory problem isn't a problem at all. The figures the Workbench manual aren meant to be taken as a strict guide but as example of the sort of RAM limit you have once your disk has booted.
This varies depending on what c mands and programs have been run du the Workbench startup-sequence and certainly differ from time in the exa screen grab shown in your manual.
As for your problem creating a dt you will have to delete a few files from Workbench disk before going any further.
Commodore have developed the Amiga operating system to a point where it just fits on floppies, so use the Delete maud to get rid of something you don’t much or don't need.
Menu systems, but has to be able to written using a Basic text editor.
Is there any software which allows to sample the sound output from the s computer by capturing the sound w still playing the original music?
A Eaton, Leomr A I Yes, it should be possible to many of the examples in the 1 Manual with North C vl.3, L expect to have to avoid some examples a rewrite others. Lattice C is a clean and legal compiler, but there will always be piler-Specific commands and other difficul ' in such cases.
In reply to your remaining questions, no, and why would you want to?

RH15 9PQ W: 0444 872234 Fax: 0444 248996 n Basing a game of strategy on the terrible First World War is a daring enterprise," claims the infraction manual proudly. Quite a strange statement I thought, not personally being able to depict any particular evidence of derring-do in simply cashing in on one of the bloodiest conflicts the world has ever seen.
Then I redised where developers Blue Byte hail from, and was able to appreciate that a WWI strategy game by a German company is indeed a risky venture, The USA is well known for its stout refusal to accept that the Vietnam War was anything but a complete shambles, earning the country nothing more than tens of thousands of pensionable teenagers and world-wide humiliation, and my initial reodion to Historyline was that it was a similar refute from he natives of he Fatherlond, intent on justifying heir failure in combat as a successful contribution to he great patriotic cause But apparently not
- it's mode perfectly dear right from he stort hat he gome is precisely hat, a game, and hat no attempt has been made to gloss over he realities of what octoaly took pioce.
So what did toke pkxe then? Basically, two I parties spent he best part manner they saw fit. Great; good - plenty of scope here to integrate g few grisly scenes of comoge, one would have thought. But ogain, Blue Byte believe - and not unreasonably so - that of utmost importance in an affair such a his is tadicol planning and, above afl, enjoyment It is to his end thatlhey have devised Historyline in such a way as to be instantly accessible, rewarding and educational.
Dweling not so much on the war, but on he gaming aspect os it does, none of he compogro in Historyline ore exact recreations of what adual' ly took place, although the basic aim obviously remains the same. Artec o gorgeously presented but lengthy intro which seems to narrate every event leodina up to the war, and decided as to whether you wish to pit your aaoinsl a friend or he ever-wiling computer which side you wish to represent), he game final arrives, and it is here where a pleasant prise occurs.
Unlike most games of his ilk, where the control option consists of a combination of clicks and keyboard controls, HI can be solely by a single joystick, proving Blue Byte'* daim regarding its ease ol use.
Etbeorw of no-Tt I ;0per« Two multi-scrolling maps make up the g»| screen - one yours ond one your opponent s which in turn combine to form a larger, map of he bottle area.
On every map each side has its own stron; I i ma I hold, the idea being to lake up occupancy Ttehtoy he enemy wafls to emerge as victor Of course you can tf you wish don your Norman Sdiwortzkopf hat and run amok destroying everything in Sight it provides the some end result if exeoAed properly, ahhough losses of artillery and troops lend to be heavier.
On the subject of artillery, your army b quite limited at first, smce the gome closely tola* hr technological advancements of the war let me exploin... There are 24 battlegrounds in all, and game lore has it that a period of two months elapses between eoch of the 24 individual baHles (totaling lour years - the length of Ire war).
Towards he end of lie conflict you wil be controlling such mechanical pioneers as l» legendary Folder biplanes, Spod fighters and Brish Mark IY tanks, but initially your weapons wil be of a more basic nature, such os mobile cannon, covaky, and disease-ridden ground troops.
Your controlling cursor is in I* form of a hexo- Lwhich when your army is in Movement Mode «the positioning of your troops, and it realy is very simple to operate.
The range of movement wil obviously depend on what unit is involved, and ogoinsl what kind of artilery you are fighting. The whole scene becomes dorkened, leaving only a few light hexagons into which you con move, Ise process being repealed (or every conlrolabie unit.
Since the game spans the entire lengh of lie wor, the weather varies with lie changing seasons, and your troops will find themselves coping will snow, ice and other conditions, ol of which etffed their effectiveness. Although the individual battle maps are quite small, range of movement is extremely limited eorly on, and it takes many min utes before the game begins to take shape. When the apposing sides finally meet an animated sequence occompanies eoch heod-on battle, all of which are well drawn, and ore accompanied by realistic sound effects Al first liese seem like a nice addition, but as
the game progresses I found them to be increasingly more tiresome, particularly for those with single drive mochines, which is lie vast majority.
The problem is that when in extended battle mode - lial is fighting out lie whole var - a huge amount of disk swapping is required, and even on an A1200, which is what I used lor the most part of lie review, a single animated sequence can take three or four minutes to complete.
Not only that, but os the gome progresses, a few individual battles may be taking pioce at once, meaning several minutes of nothing but disk swapping.
The animations can be skipped, once boded, but there is no option to toggle liem off, and the resulting tedium detracts from the game in a big way.
On some of the battlefields there ore factories, in which you can rebuild or repair vehicles ond weaponry. Depots can also be built, which on completion become on extra
* stronghold that doesn't need to be captured.
A real value-(or money pockoge.
Due to its slaw progression and tedious looding processes though, what could so easily have been an outstanding product insieod finds itself standing shoulder to shoulder with the rest.
PAUL ROUNDELL The depth in, and thought behind Historyline is undenioble, and it is presented in such a way as to boor out the programmers' cbim lial it is one of the most accessible gomes of its type.

1 meg It's been strange to watch the changes in certain types of games over the last year. Flight sims especially have undergone a drastic shift in the way that the programmers construct the games.
In the middle of lost year I mode several jokes obovt the laborious process of getting into a flight sims. It was hopeless if you just wanted to haw quick fly about and shoot down a couple of planes That aspect or facility no longer exists in this genre. They have become progressively more strategic as the months have gone on.

There are also different ways of getting around the problems encountered when playing such gomes. Instead of there being a training mode for inexperienced pilots, it is not uncommon for the game to include a simulator - a simulator within

But the evolution of the flight simulation isn't necessarily o bod thing, it's just the fod that we hgve fost the old style - the flying has become almost peripheral to the gome But enough of my moaning, I sholl tell you obout B17.
To start with I was most disappointed with the compatibility level I much prefer to ploy flight sims on a fast, occelerated machine so I instated it on an A4000 - the software did not like at all.
So I installed it on an A1500 with an 030 occel erotor and it Ripped out again.
Next I tried on A3000 with an 030 accelerator ond once ogain I hod no joy. I finally gave up and ran the game off disks on an A1200, encountering no trouble at all. Stil, it was quite slow even on the Al200 which does not bode wdl lor A500 600 users You have control of on eight-man team who fly the oircraft.

Electronic Arts are back and this time they're bringing out the big guns. Gary Roberts, the guy responsible for the conversion of John Madden's Football to the Amiga has been beavering away In a dark dungeon to bring you Desert Strike.
A massive hit on the Mega Drive, I con already guarantee Desert Strike is going to take the Amiga gomes world by storm.
How con I be so sure of (his fact? Well, it is just simply brilliant. I could quite literolfy enthuse about it all dav. For starters I’m probably biased because it's my favourite game on the Megodrive, but now it's out on the Amiaa I can safely stick little brother1 s Mego Drive in the cupboard Desert Strike is excellent, the best thing since sliced breod, the best, the tops, the best game in the universe. Slllaoappp. Phew, I flipped out there for a second.
HERE WE GO... Right I'll start the review properly now, it's just one of things I hod to get out of my system. I'll osk
o question. ‘What particular subject makes a good computer gome?*
It's easy. The answer is war. Death ond destruction is whot
the kids wont. Everyone loves o good war game. Kill some
foreigners ond then go and have your tea and go to bed. It's
just a bit of fun isn't it?
It's recently been reported that violent computer games influence how kids behove and react.
Personally I think it's all a load of rubbish. The thing that influences kids to do what they do is real life.
They see wars between nations, they see people stealing cars ond property, people taking and selling drugs, violence on the streets ond wsm Take control of a big chopper in this Gulf War arcade simulation. Saddam Hussein and Stormin' Norman are not included... Gulf- Without warning a madman has mode himself leader and threatened to start Armageddon The modman calls himself General Kilbaba and looks nothing like Soddam, honest! Very little is known about him, although he has been known to watch Les Dennis on Family Fortunes and and sexism among a whole list of other things I could mention.
Kids want to act like adults. This is the exomple being set to them by others. How do they see all this that is corrupting the world? If1 s easy - they only have to watch the news on television or read a newspaper. Computer games are just a scapegoat, so that people don't have to accept the truth about the world we live in.
Oh I was getting a bit serious there wasn't I?
What was I talking about* Err, I remember it was Desert Strike- Desert Strike is about a return to the I lough. As I said before, completely ond uflwH haKtand One thing our brave government IcnoJ is that loonies ond missiles just do not mix Yjl play the part of on American Apoche pilot sJ Because the President doesn't wont to cause a kJ he sends just you (and co-piloi) into the won* to complete a set number of missions.
The missions vary from blowing up rodar v-J to rescuing POWs from their camps and e*J though not strictly a mission, you con play such fa* as exploding camels. Each level, of whdl ore four, consists of between six to eight M these missions.
PASSWORD HELPS Desert Strike is a very hard game, not too hon that you can't get anyhere, but hard enough ml keep you entertained. For example, after a days I manoged to complete the first level and this time I'm getting quite proficient at playina r but it still took me 40 minutes to do it ThankJjpl there is a possword system otherwise it'd take yan ages to complete As you can see from the screenshots, the vwrl is very different to what you'd normally expedl from 0 chopper game Insteod of being inside Apoche you octually control it from the outside.

One of the most important features when playing Desert Strike is the map option. You use he map to coll up information on campaign targets The map also tells you where he fuel, ammo, MIAs and targets are and keeps a careful check on where the enemy is.
Keeping o eye on how much fuel and ommo you've got is essential if you wont to be any good at Desert Strike - although I have to hold my hands up and say when in he midst of battle I did forget about little things such as fuel, and died.
Be a-reful - the passion to kill the enemy might overcome you ond it wil be he start of your dcwntal MEGA BEATER The big question on my lips b: 'Is Desert Strike os good on he AMIGA as it is on he Mega Drive?'. The answer is ho* it is odually better. The graphics hove been improved. The Amiga's 64 colour half-brite mode has been utilised and the gome features realistic graphics including shadows and smoke.
The sound is a massive impwement on the Mega Drive's lacklustre attempt. Desert Strike features sound effects taken from oduol Apoche manoeuvres.
The sound is ako directional and in 3D.
What this meons is, lor instance, if you see a tank in he distance, as you approoch it the sound gets louder and more defined. The music itself is absoul toly incredible. The introduction music is adorned with some of the funkiest sounds you're ever likely to hear on your AMIGA ond is full of Jomes Brown samples. The music when you complete the level is also omazing and, in the style of the 70s music revival hot's happening at the moment, features some excellent, err 'wokko wakka wow' guitar music. It's the best music I've beard since Thrash Pig which starred in Core Design's Joguor ’ XJ220.
The playability is dmost ultless. I say almost becouse at times for some unknown reason the gome slows down. But this doesn't happen too often, but I thought r d better mention it.
If $ certainly no! A reason to not buy the gome.
It’s very addictive and I con lell you this with some certainly because everyone in he Gamer office keeps on playing the damn hing ond I can't get anywhere near the Amiga.
Desert Strike has always been one of my favourite games and it's nice to see lhat EA haven't mode a mess of the conversion and actually improved the game.
It just goes to show that these consoles aren't everything they're crocked up to be and the Amiga can compete with them.
Desert Strike is probably Electronic Art's finest moment since Populous. You alreody know how I feel abet* the game, so what on earth are you woiting for2 Go ond get it and be enlightened. Just £ deserts!
JONATHAN MADDOCK I hove very mixed feelings about trains. On several occasions, I've been more than happy to sit back in relative comfort, drinking a cup of funny-tasting coffee and munching my way through a suspiciously plastic-like burger while a guy in a blue uniform takes me to london or somewhere similar.
This saves ihe hassle of driving lo a pioce oneseff and takes core o( ihe even larger and more expensive heodoche of finding a ploce lo park once you arrive - so trains are good, in toat respect On the downside, I live directly behind what was formerly an industrial railway line, now converted into the so-called 'tourist attraction' of the East Lancashire Steam Railway, At toe time of writing tois (Sunday afternoon at home, in case anyone important is reading) I con hardly hear myself think, mainly because there are between 80 and 100 people chattering excitedly directly below my window
awaiting the orrival of toe Flying Scotsman, on apparently very famous froin wnich the management have hired for o month.
This has been the cose every weekend for toe last toree weeks, and I would just like to say toot if you are one of those people who stopped your cor in the middle or our rood, or trampled on my mum's rosebush, or just generally mode o nuisance of yourself during this hallowed Flying Scotsman period, toen you ought to get yourself a god-damn life. There -1 feel better now.
A-Train is brought to us by Maxis - those strategy gurus responsible for the epic Sim games (or 'software toys' as they like to call them), ond it would be very easy to compare it to any of their previous products, so I won't.
POWER PLAY The basic aims are pretty much toe same toough
- oops, toere I go, a comparison already - toe idea being toot
you must earn yourself as much power and money as possible.
Sporting the name it does, it's o reasonable assumption toot A-Train will contain fairly hefty train-like overtones. But it isn't all roilrooding - in fact tois is just one part of what is effectively a multi-challenge gome Of course if s important to create an effi dent ond well patronised roil network, but equally important ore developments around it - industrial, housing and recreotionol.
Without these, there would be no point or attraction in people travelling to o destination, so toe more attractive a location the better Apartments, houses, offices, skyscrapers, golf courses and amusement porks a! Contribute to toe value ond attraction of a site, and all give more reoson for potential visitors.
But these all need to be built first - therefore factories must be erected, Maxis leave the (Sim) city behind and let off some steam as they roll on by. Choo-oo-WOOO!
Required at toe weekend once you have established some leisure complexes.
Laying toe tracks toemselves is a reasonably simple affair, although - true to life - toere are only certain terrains on which a railway can be built, and therefore a line needs to be carefully planned if it isn't to cost loods more toon it should A problem I frequently hod at toe beginning was toot, keen lad that I am, I scheduled trains aplenty, only to find myself with severed costly wrecks to take care of.

Manned, and put into operation All of these projects mean parting wito toot well-loved wongo, and early delays in finishing could mean bankruptcy, and 0 perky little 'gome over* message.
Bonk loans ore available (and advisable) for large projects, and your profits ond losses are constantly available for checking through one of toe eosy-to-use icons.
Bock to the trains though, since these are toe main subject of the gome. Having constructed a workable line, wito trains carrying supplies for your buildings, ifs time to start earning yourself some passengers by enlorgmg your network.
Trains are required to carry people to ond from work, and the schedules must reflect tois. Also, additional trains moy be quickly or slowly as you want it to, and a finanod year is from April to April. An impressive vtiui touch is the otmospheric dusk ond night time much better toon the very lacklustre sound.
If you are looking for a aa- er... software toaf s quick to food and good fun for half an hou then look elsewhere. If ifs o long-term challenge you crave though, toen A-Troin is the gome for ya.
There isn't any way to run out winner os sudi becouse the game allows you to continue yo* powermongering until you're blue in toe foce, h* the beauty of gomes suds os this has always be* the foct toot they ore virtually endless.
Sim City fons wil lop this up - if s much i involved (and more fun) toon SC, but be wgmgd although the icons are very dear and toe game itself about as visual as con be, toe sheer size of toi whole offoir means that a lot of manual rearing and or frustrating attempts ore required before an* satisfaction begins to seep through.

M4wt Team 17 decided to do with Superfrog was not to moke on alternative platformer, but moke a super-playable one done in the classic style of old, making use of the Amiga's superior graphics and sound capabilities.
Superfrog sk bupertrog skirts with a fantastic ond very witty onimation lovingly crafted ond sculptured by Eric Schwartz. Eric, who you may have heard of, is responsible for loads of those cute PD cortaon animations that you see flying around. If you haven't see any then it's definitely worth ringing up q PD library just ta enjoy the mgn's talents.
The onimation is top notch ond tells the story of a mogic Prince ond his bride-to-be. The Prince's land was full to the brim with feelings of peoce and harmony - that wos until the wicked witch arrived on the scene.
The old hag got incredible jealous of the Prince's bride-to-be and decided to turn the Prince intoaslimey frog.. The Prince was now entirely helpless ond decided to retire to the river bank to mourn over his lost love. A strange bottle floated post, a strange bottle containing a liquid known as Lucozode. Yes, I know it's not entirely believabk but it was a good way of getting a bit of adverta- I ing, plus Team 17 supremo Martyn Brown probo bfy got o few freebie* out of them, At leost I keep him off the lager! Where was I? Ah ye, strange bottle floated post the froggy Prince and he was so
despondent he decided to drink it. W*
o flash of lighting ond a gust of wind he had I Team 17 are
quickly gaining a reputation as the best Amiga games company in
the business.
For starters they've got the right attitude. Quality and not quantity is their motto.
Almost every piece of software they've released has been without o doubt on obsolute classic.
Team 17 use the best graphic artists, programmers ond quite possibly the best music ond sound effects man in the world.
Just take o look at their list of releases. There was Alien Breed, a classic Gountiet style lookolike lor the 90s Project X was on amazing shoot-'em- up which blew all of its competitors out of the water. Assassin was o platfcrm ochon game, but unfortunately it was mode out-of-house ond suf- I some mojor design faults, but it was sti" domn good piece of software The boys from Wakefield then returned to form with Body Blows, a beat-'em-up that completely battered the Streerfighter 2 to death with liant graphics and sound.
Team 17 have created the almost perfect Amiga shoot and beat-'em- ups, but they've always wonted to do o classic Amiga platform game.
The platformer in question Team 17 are back again with yet another classic. Look the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's Hop, hop and away... Superfrog and you too will believe a frog can fly... I always get excited about Team 17 software mainly becouse even before I load it up I know that it's going to be good. The graphics are superb, the sound is brilliant plus and the playability is truly excellent, almost without fail.
Making o piece of software of this type could have been extremely risky far any other company.
How mgny plgtfarmer} ore instantly forgettable2 Exoctfy, almost oil of them.
Apart from a select few, good platformers are hard to find. The main problem is the platform game itself. How do you moke it so that isn't olike to every other on the market? How do you moke o platformer that isn't instantly compared to Morio or Sonic the Hedgehog or Zool? The answer is you can't.
Whatever product a software house releases, it is still going to be compared to another product whether it be
o platform or o shoot-'em-up.
For example, any puzzler that involves the use of blocks is going to be compared to Tetris or Columns. Any interactive odventure is not going to escape without bearing some resemblance to Monkey Island 2. It's just the way this harsh computmiraculously become a Superfrog.
Thus our little froggy friend decided to put wrongs to right ond get his beloved Princess bock from the clutches of the wicked witch.
Story time is over, now down to business Superfrog is divided into six major worlds of which there ore four sub-worlds To complete one of hese levels you must coHecl a certain number of coins which ods as a kind of toll fee.
The exact number of coins is shown on a large coin in the bottom right-hand comer of the screen, this number decreases os you run about tike mod collecting the golden currency. The exit will only open when you Hove collected enough coins.
All his mental coin collecting is also against a time limit. When the time runs out so do Superfrog's powers, so pkxed around the levels ore bottles of Lucozode which when collected up will keep his energy topped up.
There are oho o number of special powers scattered oround eoch level for you to use. Collect the wings icon ond *»is will enoble you to perform great leaps in the oir. The destructo-spud is o little green blob with eyes which you can use to chuck at airborne enemies ond With a unite on hb toe* Saperfreg dcckto it's time to save the day.

Superfrog con also turn invisible thanks to the invisibility pi which renders our froggy hero invincible lor a short period of time. There ore plenty of bonus points to be picked up. These come in he form of several different types of fruit When you complete the level these points ore converted into emits. You ore given a ounce to coled the points or better stil gamble it ol.

you get the chance to win level es, extra lives and thousands of points The fruit machine is o good little feature and as far as I know it's never been before.
Controlling Superfrog couldn't be easier os the controls are very bask indeed. Although at first our slimey friend is a bit difficult to hande and seems o little bit too fast, after ten mindes of play yCxX won ries wil be over and you'l be jumping and running hough he levels like o newly-bom spring lamb.
Don't think I need to tell you how agod iperfrog is - you con probably already tel from the score-box ond the bloomin' massive Gomer Gold, but hey I'll tell you anyway.
Everything aboyt Superfrog is just so polished. Every asped has been corefuly considered ond os for os platform games go hey just don't gel any better than his.
The graphics are ostoundingly good - all the characters ore wonderfully drown and you could almost hink that yOu're watching o cortoon.

The sound effects are good, though, with o mere smattering of sampled speech It plays like a dreom. At first it looks extremely bosk, but os you progress it becomes more intricate and increasingly more difficult.

FoB ORIGINAL SCORE A 1 200 OC0 A SCORE 00 0 Mansell's scored 79 per cent in February's Gamer - not bad by any means, but certainly not indicative of the type of product we've come to expect of Gremlin over the last couple of yean.
The main reason for this relatively low mark was the speed and smoothness of the racing - always on important factor in a racing game - or rather, the lock thereof. With the difficulty set as it was, the updates were too slow, ond therefore too jerky, to present an accurate Simulation of high speed racing, and consequently Mansell found itself locking in the excitement departranl.
Now though, with toe fJ power ol the A1200 at its disposal, there surely con be no excuse for anyhing less than a fast, smooth ride?
The first noticeable improvement is the speed ol loading, which is only to be expected when you consider die capabilities of he A1200.
Once loaded the gome offers exactly the same as did its multi-compatible counterpart, as it is of course nothing more than an enhanced version.
Scenery-wise here is no change - or at least, not in the way it looks.
The speed it zips by at though has chonged dramatically. Gone are the jerky updates, replaced by moderately fast, smooth 3D scrolling, improving control over he car a great deal.
Difficulty in overtaking other racers is still there, but now instead of being frustrating it makes play more challenging due to the overall improvements in gomeplay.
Disk swapping is mini- malised thanks to your 2Mb ol RAM, and even the winning sequence I complained about originally lakes much less time to appear at he end ol he race.
Whereas he mass market version ol NMWC is nothing more han a good quality racer in a large field, the AI200 promotes this attempt to the front line of the storting grid with he likes of lotus 3 and Jaguar XJ220.

Postcode Allow 28 davs for drlivrry |_n_ ______ ___ j layout of the levels, all of our design decisions were aimed at creating an expansive unique game environment to challenge the Amiga game player.'
Woody’s World features more than 60 levels to explore ond each takes up 64 screens. It olso features over 20 graphical styles, more ihon one hour of background music, super smooth scrolling ond masses of secret rooms and hidden bonuses.
The platform odventure is set in a mysterious land where six castles have been overrun by menacing baddies.
Woody, the hero, must rid eoch castle of its evil inhabitants and free the land of oil evil.
Woody is not normal. During the platform fen ond octfen he chonges his identity more often than I've had hot dinners. Woody can chonge into Prince Woody who has the obility to slide fhrouah gaps and kick baddies or he con chonge into King Woody who can enter special rooms and access even more levels.
We received o preview version of Woody’s World ond it's almost finished except that it still has a couple of bugs and elements of gameplay to tidy up before DMI release the product.
Even though if1 s the preview version I con tell that Woody’s Wodd is going to be on AMIGA chart topper The reason is simple. Ben, Gamer staff writer ond boy genius, is not that fond of platform gomes, but Woody's World has kept him coptivoted for almost a full week!
This is unheard of in Gamer circles - the words Ben ond platform just do not go together. I was so shocked I had to go and lie down in o darkened room, so you can see why I'm so sure it’s going to be a classic.
Woody's World not only plays like a dream, but also looks like one with delightful cartoon-like quality graphics displayed in 32 colours. The music World hod been bom.
The lods at Vision hod noticed that there were foods of platform gomes ground, ond that unfortunately many of them were rubbish.
They decided to make the best platformer the Amiga world hod ever seen. The ingredients were to be amazing graphics, brilliant sound, but most One thing you notice about Woody's World is that it's 1Mb only, an increasingly popular move.
Paul ond Rod, the gome's programmers Ortd designers, commented on the decision to moke Woody's World 1Mb:
* We've decided to take the 1Mb Amiga standard and fit as much
game into this configuration os possible They go on to say
that: Without paying too much attention to the current batch
of AMIGA plot- form games, we've tried to develop a unique
style in Woody's World.
Tram the graphics and music through to the is olso of a very high standard ond gently bopi around in the background while you woggle yoir joystick furiously.
Rod ond Paul scry they hove created the bia and best Amiga platformer to date ond I belie«e them. Vision have alreody mode a name for themselves via Cybemetix, but Woody's World is guaranteed to shoot hem up into the Dig time.
It will be available on DMI’s Global label in the next month or so ond will cost you £25.99. Ned much to osk for the world's greatest AMIGA platformer.

• 7; vi 5* Vision Software claims this is the largest platformer
ever developed for the Amiga.
Jonathan Maddock takes charge of the lie detector and investigates Watch out Woody! Mere mm are in the out*id* stage, just AM of th« 60 levels Vision Software are relatively unknown by anyone's standards, but are already making big waves in the sea of Amiga gaming. Cast yaur minds back to November 1992 and Amiga Computing's CoverDisk.
What was on that fabled CoverDisk I hear you ay? Well, it was nothing more than Cybemetix, n simply the world's greatest sharewore Wup.
Vision Software hod created o modem day masterpiece - a Defender done with visually stunning graphics and marvellous gameplay.
Cybemetix could easily have been released at s and mode poh of cash.
5 year is now 1993 ond some dever person at Digital Modeling International (DMI for short) snapped up the boys at Vision Software Locked in a cupboard for seven months, they re-appeared, some disks clutched in their hands.

Tel: Member No: When I first heard about Alien3 I was as excited as a pervert in a whipped cream factory. The bottle between Ripley ond the alien has raged on for over 14 years now. You would have thought that a software house such as Ocean or US Gold would have signed up the licence.
The only piece of software I con remember is a dreodful and very sad attempt which Appeared on ihe good old Spectrum. Thanks lo Probe Softwore Alien3 is now on ihe AMIGA, so sit bock, absorb the atmosphere ond enjoy.
It does not follow the exact plot, the reason being that the film would not make an entertaining bit of software. As fans will I know, Alien3 doesn't feature any weapons because it is set in a prison colony and that in itself would make the game a bit boring.
A second reason is the fact that Alien3 only features one alien and even a super alien wouldn’t last long against Ripley.
What Probe hove done is added loads of weapons - pulse rifle, flame thrower, and so on successful pup career - and loods of aliens. The game is actually more like the original Aliens than Alien3.
The plot is very simple indeed; the aliens have taken over the colony and turned it into a breeding ground by using the prisoners as hosts for alien eggs Ellen Ripley is back, but so is the bitch, and something tells me it's going to get very bloody. Hudson, we are leaving... Ripley has to rescue the prisoners - by putting them out of their pain ond misery - ond waste all the aliens.
This is basically a simple platform and blast- 'em-up, but it works much better than foe average simply because vOu can already relate to it. What Ali«n3 has which most do not is atmosphere - and bogs of it to bool.
Ripley can flick between four sets of weapons (see below for details) but unfortunately they are all rather limited. This means you have to be coreful otherwise you'll be weaponless ond helpless. You can replenish your armoury if you're lucky enough to find the appropriate icons.
Alien3 is a complete and utter gore-fest with blood and, in the aliens' cases, acid flying all over the place. Graphically it is quite impressive.

Latest in the long line of computer-generated music makers is Lemmings 2, so we went down to Food Records in London to see whaf s cooking there.
Behind the production are km Richardson and Nick Coler, whose company is famous mainly for the discovery of Jesus Jones, Met, tfce mm yets paid far listeniag to whose leod singer coincidentally owns holf of the studio.
The person mostly responsible for their involvement in the Lemmings record is the gomes-ploying A&R man Miles who was approached by Psygnosis and decided it would be a bit of fun. Money is definitely not their motivation for the record - they don't expect to moke much out of it of oil.
The studio itself is quite small, ond not really knowing the workings of such a ploce, I was baffled by the presence of a large TV which was suspended above the mixing desk.
"What's that lor?" I asked innocently, thinking it was going to be a key part of some technical videomaking process.
Til show you," and so Nick turns on the TV showing me toda s edition of Yogi Bear, 'and the horse racing's pretty important," he says.
So much for the high-powered world of pop! This is not the first Nick Colcr: hard at work as always it's non-stop in the world of pop record that Ian and Nick have been involved in. Remember the fun but nevertheless ridiculous Doctorin' the Tardis that got to No 1 a few years ago? You will be relieved to know that it was produced by the KLF team under another name.
Those early successes got Nick and Ian on Top of The Pops wearing silly costumes and the like. Possibly the most remarkable thing about the fame was the acquisition of a brand new Jaguar XJS from Freddie Starr (honest) following a bet on the record.
About the only thing Ion and Nick had in common in the first ploce was that they both hod an interest in music ond had worked in mental institutions at same paint in their life.
They didn't reveal whether that was a help or a hindrance!
The record itself wiH not just be something you listen to, for on the I2in mixes will be solutions to various levels of the game. We are not entirely sure how they plan to incorporate them onto the vinyl - let's hope it's not June 1993 a backwards message or they will probably end up being blamed for another teenage suicide!

usual price. The com• pony's new dance label, Synthetic, will
be dealing with distribution.

Loops - sections of code which are repeated until some exit
condition is satisfied - are extremely common in computer
programs.
HiSoft Basic provides a number of loop-related statements but the particular One used this month is the For Next loop because it goes hand in hand with the use of a multi-container type of Basic variable known as the array.
The variables we’ve talked about in the series so far have all stored single values. It is often useful however to be able to work with whole sets of related values.
Suppose for example that we wanted to use collections of x and y variables to hold the x and y axis components of three points on a graph. One approach would be to name the variables as xO, yO, xt, yl, x2 and yl.
If, for example, we then wanted to initialise each x item to a value of 20, we could do it like this: i0=20
* 1=20 iMI Three values are easy enough to code but try this
approach with 100 such statements and you'll realise that
there must be a better way of handling these situations.
What is needed is a way of declaring collections of items in a way that allows us to uniquely identify an item by virtue of its position, because in that case we could Know your commands Command: dim Syntax: DIM [SHARED] variable ((subscripts...) ) (.variable [subscripts...]]... Purpose: Defines the maximum values for array variable subscripts and reserves the appropriate storage. The minimum value for each subscript may be set using the Option Base statement. The DIM SHARED form is used to declare arrays and ordinary variables that can be accessed from within sub-pro- grams without the need
for a shared statement in each sub program.
Write loops like: FOR n=0 to n do southing uitk the i'th i itea NEXT i This need was solved many years ago by developing the idea of an indexed or subscripted variable. With HiSoft Basic, as with most high-level languages, these entities are called arrays and each item in the array is known as an element.
An array then is a collection of objects of the same type arranged in such a way that we can access any element of the array by specifying its index position.
Array names follow the same rules as those for ordinary variables but arrays which contain more than ten elements need to be pre-declared using Basic's DIM statement.
To dimension a string array called x$ () and set all of the elements from x$ 0) to x$ (99) to the string "Empty" we would therefore use this code.
Old *$ (99) FOR i=0 to 99
* S(i)="E«pt)f" NEIT i Similarly to print the contents of the
above array we could use this loop: FOR i=0 to 99 PUNT *$ ( )
NEXT i I've used subscripts that start from zero so the string
array shown above contains one hundred elements, ie x$ (0) up
to x$ (99). Some people find working with zero indices awkward
and it is worth mentioning that HiSoft Basic provides an
Option Base statement which allows the programmer to force
array index values to always start from one.
Multi-dimensional arrays or tables, eg x$ (20,20) are easily set up and with HiSoft Basic it is even possible to use arrays which Command: for. Next Syntax: FOR counter_vanable = start TO end [STEP increment! NEXT counter , variable Purpose: The counter.variable is set to the specified start value and the statements within the FOR NEXT loop executed. The counter variable is then incremented by one (or by the value specified by a STEP value) and the result compared to the end value.
If the counter variable does not exceed the end value, the loop code is repeated.
Going loopy HiSoft BASIC PART 4 are local to subprograms. Another powerful HiSoft extension is the ability to redimension an array without loosing existing data.
You do not incidentally have to use simple array subscripts. Expressions can be used and the clock program that I provided last month is a good example.
The second-hand had to be able to be displayed in any one of 60 positions and since a complete sweep of a circular clock face involves 360 degrees it was not hard to figure out that each new second hand position was six degrees further on from the last.
By using a bit of high school trigonometry I was able to pre-calculate the locations on the circumference representing those second-hand positions. Here's the x() and y() array-based loop which did the trick: FOR i=-W to 270 STEP t iUU90) i)=2»RUIt!$ *(0S(i*mtEES TO RAH) y(U+90) 6)!2»RADlllS*SlNU'0EGREES TO RAIS) NEXT i A bit frightening I know, but if you work out the (i+90) 6 expressions using steps of six within the -90 to 270 degree Command: option base Syntax: OPTION BASE [011] Purpose: Defines the lowest subscript value to be used with arrays.
Command: pset Syntax: PSET [STEP] (x_position, y_posrtion), [colour] Purpose: This statement plots a pixel of a given colour in the current window at the given
x. position and y_posrt»on. Drawing s relative to the top left of
the window unless the STEP keyword s used.
Loop range you'll see that they just correspond to the numbers 0,1,2,3,4... 60.
In other words, the right-hand side terms provide a way of specifying the x() and y() array subscripts whilst the left-hand-side expressions produce the second-hand position co-ordinates which get stored in the array.
Lire result is that for any value of i from 0 to 60 the array elements x(i) and y(i) end up holding the x y co-ordinate data for the outer-most point of the i'th second-hand position.
It is because I precalculated these secondhand circle point values that I was able to set up the initial clock display by using a loop which plotted all 60 second-hand positions using Basic's Pset instruction. The loop added the x() and y() co-ordinates for each second hand position to an arbitrary: FOR i?0 to 60’ 1 e for eicti second PSET(XJMINtx(U,T_0RI61lt)r(1)) NEXT i The same pre-calculated x() and y() data was of course also used in the routine that updated the position of the second-hand!
Trying to write a similar program without using array-based code would be a nightmare and the moral of this story is simple: Loop-based array constructs are well worth learning about because, one you are used to the underlying ideas, they can make your life as a programmer significantly easier!

o you know that feeling you gel once in ;i while, when you see a
really excellent piece of software, or for that matter any
really well thought oul and effective product?
You know the feeling I’m talking about - it is like a big grin inside you, a reassuring feeling that there are still people out there who love what they do. Someone, somewhere, has actually taken the trouble not to dish out just any old slop.
For me these moments reaffirm the fun philosophy of computing, so often obscured by today's commercial considerations.
Now when progrants like these arc shareware, with registration costs so low that they are practically free. I tliink we should all really take notke and support them.
After all, it doesn't take only expensive packages to draw our attention any more, does it? At least. I hope not.
Yes, the package I am talking about is really that gcxxl.
It is a cel animation engine called XI from Software on a Shoestring (it really is!) In the USA, and costs only $ 30.
If you do any animation at all, and it's been some time since you experienced the feeling we mentioned above, this package could well make your day... For those who haven’t come across it, cel animation is the process by which drawings are produced *on successive layers of transparent material (cels), so that the eye can see the whole sequence of movements at a glance.
XI simulates the transparent cels by using successive shades of grey, so that the more recent frames are darker, and the older ones are paler.
This is a fairly standard technique and is used in many animation programs, including Disney Animation Studio. It should be obvious dial the animated cels are in black and white (line drawing) only; if you want to paint diem in sufwequendy, you must import diem into a paint package.
When a scripting language is added to any drawing program, it automatically adds a new dimension to it, giving it some of the qualities of a mini*CAD package.
This kind of automating power is invaluable where* a lot of precision is necessary, and would come into its own when animating such things as machines, moving components and so on.
All this is usable directly from Arexx. In fact, you could create a whole animation widiout as much as touching your mouse or graphics tablet, simply by programming it.
By using the programming side of Arexx for calculations, a lot of possibilities are opened: With a bit of work you could accomplish goal-directed animation, ie repre- Many Amiga users are drawn to learning Arexx, so as to get the most out of multitasking, Init a few shy away from its ‘minority language" image. No point in putting a lot of investment into something that won't lie very use- ftil in the future.
Don't worry, if you learn Arexx you probably won’t have to leam any other macro language, at least not on tlie Amiga. All major software packages are now using Arexx as their automation language, The Arexx core is the same regardless of which software uses it.
Arexx is also simple enough to be picked up very quickly if you already know another language, like Basic, and not too difficult even if you know no other programming language.
The most interesting item of news that I got this month, however, is that IBM will be releasing something XI has otlers variety of features, including control of the blitter (minterms) senting the movement ol linked or articulated objects Alternatively you could take 3D (x,y,z) co-ordinates, pc* haps from a modelling program, and convert them to 2D screen representations, either isometric, or even perspectn Program the change needed in each cel. And let your machin do the animation for you.
The Arexx interface is very simple. It is invoked with I mouse click which prompts you for your pro-written prograa You can also enter single line commands directly at th requester. Naturally. XI can lie linked to any other Arexx cofl patible program.
The program proved itself extremely quick to use and gd on with. There are intelligent keyboard short-cuts for everji tiling - a feature often neglected on the Amiga.
The following snippet of code shows one approach to ating an animation sequence, nuking use of the turtle: called VISUAL REXX with the latest version of its new OS 2 2.0 operating system. This appears to be RF’XX with a graphic interface tp OS 2, Now REXX, (the language on which Arexx is based), has been around for sortie time on large computers, and it is even available under MS-DOS. There it enjoys a small following of users who like its excellent parsing facilities, and use it as a utility language.
Of course, you get nothing like the multitasking control that Arexx gives, but since Pcs have never had true multitasking in the first place, this has lieen irrelevant.
With the appearance of modem multitasking systems like OS 2 2.0 and Microsoft's W indows NT, it won't take long for someone to realise that all these tasks could be usefully linked. All they have to do is look at the Amiga.

The new_pos() function then moves our turtle to a new position and heading. Basically it would describe a path of movement.
The phase variable is used if the object to he drawn is not exactly the same in each frame. For instance, legs may be walking. Gears may be turning, and so on. In the accompanying illustration, you may notice tliat the little animal Is wagging its tail as it is turning.
The more I played with this demo the more I liked it. It is as solid, versatile and - very importantly • hug free, as any commercial offering. Above all it has a great feel of practical usability. It is small enough to run easily on a 1Mb machine, and would probably even rein on an old uncxpandcd Amiga. First class work. Software on a Shoestring!
I found myself wondering w hat language it was programmed in. By a chance bit of snooping. I discovered that it is written with the popular American package Jfonh, which does not show itself much on this side* of the waters Hie only real fault that I could Find with this program is that it only comes in the US NTSC mode This means that you have a maximum of 400 vertical pixels, rather than 512. Perhaps if there is enough interest the author will recompile a full-size European PAL version.
Yes. I certainly recommend you check this product out. In my opinion it would still be fair value at three times the price. I have written to the author to confirm the address, and I will let you know in the next issue.
As always, 1 suggest you contact the author First before sending off any money, just to make sure that you aa- not posting to an invalid destination. The demo (save-disabled) version of XI can be found on Fred Fish disk number 5l6, and the address is Software on a Shoestring. 1116 Road 68.
Pasco. WA 99301 stands for excellence One of the most well thought-out features of XI is the inclusion of so-called ‘turtle graphics” as found in the educational language. LOGO.
Take a trip with turtle power Turtle graphics is a way of drawing by specifying a direction and a heading from your current position on the screen, ratiier than using the traditional (x.y) coordinate system.
The name is historically derived from 3 little pen-carrying mechanical buggy, or turtle, which was used to create drawings in the early versions of LOGO. On-screen the “turtle" is only notional - a pixel that moves and draw's as you instruct it.
The program control flow is provided by Arexx. XI provides only the graphics commands, such as FW x (forward x pixels), RT y (turn right y degrees), PENUP, PENDOWN, SETPOS x y (set the position of the turtle). GETH (get the direction the tunic is heading) and so on, The conventional graphics commands like BOX. CIRCLE. POLYGON and the like can Ix* freely mixed with turtle commands.
For instance, to draw a square in LOGO you go forward and turn right a total of four times. This is what it looks like in XI, using Arexx.
X = 10 dc for 4 fV x ; IT 90 end For the purposes of this article I have adopted die convention of having all the Arexx commands in lowercase, and all the XI commands in capitals. This is not necessary. It is only done for the sake of readability, Here's another example, that gels and stores the current turtle position and heading - useful if we want to return to our original position.
I* K »ill nted results fro* Xl * options results CETIe turtle bending = result SETPOS I* Result is string with 2 nuts *1 I* Extract co-ordinates: * pirse m result turtle.xpos turtlejrpos Just like LOGO, complete drawings an be described by a function or procedure, and can be called w henever needed.
The importance of the turtle graphics Is that they can describe a drawing fully, independently of the direction in wrhich it is facing. This is a very elegant solution and spares us die effort of recalculating the co-ordinates.
The turtle graphics built into XI. Together with Arexx. Combine to form an interesting version of LOGO. I can easily see it being used to teach kids; the animation bonus will certainly liven up any class.
Regular LOGO does not have anything like the facilities or speed required to display animations, so XI provides a really good - perhaps a better, alternative. Ideas can be visualised very quickly, and errors are spotted instantly and can be corrected interactively. This is a vital part of the learning process.
Believe me. This product is full of schoolroom potential. It has that special ability to capture the imagination instantly, and die quick and visible results are great for motivation.
Whether it wrill actually ever be used in this way is another matter. Call me a cynic if you will, but I suspect it won’t. Oil well, at least die smart hobbyists and keen amateurs will beneFit,,.

CARE ELECTRONICS p_ Dept AMC. 15 Holland Gardens. Garston. Watford. Herts. WD2 6JN. Fax: 0923 672102 m Q ® ORDER LINE ON 0923 894064 mm L With the Amiga now wdl established as the premier video engine, a genlock has become an essential to many home studios. As a result, two new units from Electronic IX-sign are hot news - especially as they seem to be jffordaNi- while retaining quality results. You ran choose from the cheaper awnposite version or the pricier Y C and S-VHS unit VIDEO As you can see from tlx- photography, the)1 aren’t exactly contenders for the Miss Genlock awards, but if
you can overlook the less tlian spectacular aesthetics and cast the Volvo-esque styling aside the interior hides the odd pleasant surprise.
Although nut pretty, both units certainly score well n tlx- functionality side- with the sort of robus design and build quality which epitomLses German attention to detail.
Alth(High each serves a different sector of tlx- market tlx- basic design is all but identical, with the only difference appearing on the rear of the units.
As you'd expect from an S-VHS genlock, both Y C in and out are there, plus the added aitrjction of tlx-ir composite alter egos. A particularly pleasant aspect of the Y C option are the standard S-VHS mini DINs as opposc-d to the split male phonos sometimes offered on S-VHS gear - a form of connection which all too often needs additional calling to assimilate the hardware into certain j setups.
Although pretty self explanatory - courtesy of the photography
- there's very little physical difference between the two. As a
result [ there's not much point in dealing with their basic
physiology separately.
On the front of the near Ixrmb-pnxrf casing sits the ubiquitous control panel complete with a fairly standard array of control knobs plus a single invert switch read)' to generate a keyhole effect - cokxir zero as foreground, video as the hackgnxind - when necessary.
Of course this can lx* toggled to the standard setting of video as i replacement for cokxir zero as required. Alongside tlx- albre . Mentioned flick switch await a total of no less than five knobs, each controlling their own element of the final output.
Tlx* first three deal specifically w ith tlx* overall image quality by iUowing adjustment of colour, contrast and brightness respectively.
The penultimate knob adds the essential fade allowing control over the introduction and fading of the overlaid Amiga graphics while tlx* fifth and final defines tlx* degree* of superimpose applied : to the video signal.
Paul Austin plugs in two new arrivals which are designed to suit both the composite output of the amateur and the semi-pro efforts of the S-VHS brigade All pretty standard stuff, however it must be said that the knobs themselves do leave a bit to he desired. Altlxxigh as sturdy as they come, they feel a bit slack which in practice means that silky smooth fades can become a little jerky.
There's yet another irritating aspect to tlx* control panel, namely available space. Being a fairly sizeable chap. I like many others suffer from unfeasible big mitts and as a result actually turning the knulw under tlx* cramped conditions can cause real problems on both units.
Moving to the rear of the units things are again pretty standard with tlx* necessary I O options mentioned earlier plus the essential RGB Thru enabling connection of a rtkJrtilOf.
Altlxxigh a fairly' standard feature- on most nxxk-m genlocks. ILs importance cani lx- stressed enough. If you’re toying with the idea of a cheaper genlock, think very carefully if this particular feature t isn't implenx-nted, as an apparent initial saving can prose costly in the kmg term.
In addition to I O and the thm-port. Both units also offer an Get connected In the classic tradition of almost every genlock on the market, both Electronic Design models connect up to RGB Out on the Amiga by a suitably lengthy cable while the actual power is supplied via a joystick connector.
Although seemingly the ideal answer to the power problem, the aforesaid connector can be tricky when connected to an A1500 A2000, Admittedly the connection can be made but it's a pretty close call and if constant removal and reconnection is required the wear and tear could cause problems in time.
Optional 12v power input plus mono-only Video Out. When connected to the composite input on a monitor you can then access a rough and ready version of tlx* output head- ing for the VCR - useful if ytxi can't be bothered connecting a IV to the target recorder.
Although not exactly perfect in certain areas, it must he said tltat tlx* output quality of both units is on a par with anything in their respective price ranges - although the composite unit is uncomfortably dose to the upper limit of tlx- composite price bracket Gwen the choice, and of cwree the need, the S-VHS unit has to he the more attractive of tlx- two. Primarily because unlike its composite counterpart it comes in at tlx* cheaper end of the market in respect to units such as the Hama 290. While offering enhanced flexibility w hen compared to GVP’s G-Lock.

NR BRANDON HILL, HOTWELLS. BRISTOL BS15UT f We now have We now have 1 I FRED FISH 1-750 g T-BAG1-61 | ach IDCMP flag in the NewWindow data structure represents an event that a program could be informed about, by a message in the Window s UserPort.
The polling loop in the demo program waits for a RAWKEY, MOUSEBirrrONS, WINDOWCLOSE or INTUITICKS event to occur, stores the class and code in its own variables and releases the mentor)' for the next incoming message.
For more details on Intuition Window event handling, see last month's column.
Think of a low resolution screen as a page with 256 narrow lines, and 320 dots (pixels) on each line. Each pixel can be dear (logical colour 0) or set in logical colour 1. Each logical colour is allocated a physical colour, made up of differing proportions of red, green and blue. If more than one page (or bit- plane) is used, more logical colours are available.
The Amiga grapliics library commands can draw lines and shapes, paint large areas, or write on the screen.
Last month the demonstration program used graphics library commands, WritePLxelO to change the colour of a screen pixel, and SeiRastO to fill the whole window with the given logical colour. Both commands used the address of the Window's RastPort which can be obtained from the Window stiucture.
The RastPort is a structure containing all the Window's options for drawing shapes or producing letters on the screen.
The full structure, with any flags used, is found in die Amiga include header file indude graphics rastport.h. Some of the PROGRAMMING the graphics cursor. The cursor's x (or horizontal) position gives the left-hand edge, and the y (or vertical) position the baseline of the first letter. The baseline is the lowest position of each letter, ignoring its descender (imagine the text written on lined paper, for the position of the letters relative to the baseline), The text written by the demo program uses the default font, or set of letter shapes. More exotic lettering can be created by loading
details from disk - this topic will be covered in a later issue of Amiga Computing.
The command SetRGB4() changes a logical screen colour to new (improved?)
Red, green and blue values. The command needs the screen’s Viewport address which can be obtained from the Screen structure, or from an Amiga library routine. The screen can consist of several Picture frames The support disk contains the program source code listing (block.c) and the object code (block). The source code includes the file (block.h); its own header file containing global variables, definitions and data structures.
This header file includes, In its tgm, any Amiga header files needed for Intuition window and screen structures and definitions used in the program source.
When the object program (block) is run, the program opens the Intuition and Graphics libraries, and opens a low resolution custom screen. A window called the main window will open, which recognises four classes of events.
When a mouse button or key is pressed, the event will be marked by a message on bitplanes, die information being held in consecutive areas of memory. Screen memory is allocated with the AllocRastert) command.
RastPons structure members can be changed directly, others are usually changed using Graphics Library routines.
The routine SetAPenO can be used to change the foreground pen, SetDrMdO can be used to change the way the foreground pen is used, relative to the background.
The DrawO command will draw a line between two given sets of coordinates, and the RectFillO command will fill a given rectangle in the current foreground colour.
Note that if at any time an attempt is made to colour a pixel that is not on the screen, the software will not trap the error, other memory' is overwritten, and the results unpredictable.
The MoveO command will move the graphics cursor to specific pixel on the screen. The TextO routine can be used to display a given string of Ascii characters, from a starting point at The addresses of these bitplanes, and details of their height, width, and depth (or number of planes) is held in a BitMap structure - each RastPort has a pointer to a BitMap.
A Window can be allocated a default BitMap, or a custom BitMap can be defined, using die InitBitMapO command, and attached to the NewWindow structure before the Window is opened.
The demo program Window has its own BitMap defined, but the address could be obtained from the RastPort structure member.
In addition to the screen memory, other bitplanes can be allocated and BitMaps initialised. Pictures can lie copied from one BitMap to 1 another using the BltBitMapO command.
BltBitMap(SBMap,sour cex,sourcey,DBMap,dx, dy,width.height,192, planes,0) is used to copy a chunk from rectangle from SBMap to DBMap directly.
On the CoverDisk... the screen in the current foreground colour.
When the Escape key is pressed, or the window closed, the program closes the screen, and exits.
The fourth event occurs after the elapse of one-third of a second, and the program draws a line somewhere on the screen (just for something to do).
If no key or button has been pressed for 30 seconds, the program starts to amuse itself with a pretentious (bordering on silly) screen saver.
The screen display is turned into a six by five sliding block puzzle, and the blocks start to move about. As soon as a key or mouse button is pressed, the original screen contents are restored and the main program continues as if nothing has happened.
Tlie demo program initialises three bitmaps, one to hold a copy of the screen. PicBitMap, one for display, ScreenBitMap, and one to keep a copy of any rectangles being moved about, BltBitMapO is used both to save a copy of the whole screen, and to slide small blocks about.

M Just a pipe dream?
II I Gmx-1 General Midi Sound Module ost General Midi (GM) sound modules spoil the Roland name and GS logo with the latter signifying that the module conforms to Roland’s superset of General Midi.
While both Yamaha and Korg have released GM products (TGI00 and 03RAV respectively), no other manufacturer has made any movements in this direction, From looking at the front panel of the GMX-1, you’d be forgiven for dunking that this is the exception, but the GM logo is misplaced as you’ll see later.
Designed and built in France by Dream, the control side of the GMX-1 couldn’t be much simpler with only three items on the front panel - on off switch, volume slider and headphone socket.
The mapping of the internal sounds conforms to die GM Sound Set which means that the basic 128 timbres are the same as for any other GM module and are called up by the relevant Midi Program Change message from a synth keyboard or Sequencer.
Also included are various drumkits and sound effects; in effect, Dream have looked closely at Roland's Sound Canvas and created an identical product in terms of architecture including the mistake Roland made with Bank Select messages which precludes most sequencers from easily accessing tones beyond the basic
128.
The comparison ends the moment you hear the sounds While all of the Sound Canvas tones are based on good quality samples, die GMX-1 uses a mixture of samples and digital synthesis.
This is Fine, hut although Dream state that these samples are of 16-bit quality, die graininess and digital noise on die tail end of many sounds shows that the resolution is only one factor.
Tile unsatisfactory tonal character may be due to a low sampling rate, poor quality- analogue to digital conversion or some other factor, but in six years of reviewing sound modules I cannot recall one whose sound quality was inferior to the GMX-1.
Perhaps this is a case of getting what you pay for - to keep the price down. Dream have left out the Chorus and Reverb that makes many of the Sound Canvas tones w hat they are.
For computers other than the ST. the rear panel includes an RS-232 connector to provide a direct computer link without the A General Midi (GM) module has to conform to a specific set of Midi functions. For instance, ail GM modules must be 16-part multi-timbfal and play back key- based drums on Midi channel 10 according to the GM Percussion Map.
They have to have a minimum of 24 simultaneously available voices and 128 presets, each assigned to the Midi Program Change number in the GM Sound Set.
Finally, they must recognise certain Midi Control Changes including Modulation, Volume. Pan, Expression and Sustain Pedal along with Channel Aftertouch and Pitch Bend.
Consequently, using any GM sound module should mean compatibility - no notes cutting out due to different polyphonies, no incorrectly selected sounds via Midi Program Changes, no incoherent drums due to the wrong mapping, and so on.
What is General Midi?
Might have 14 instrument voices and 6 drum sounds but you cannot guarantee 24 voices. Whichever way you view it, the GMX-1 does not conform to GM in this area.
Politics aside, comparing playback of a Midi File on the GMX-1 and a Sound Canvas shows that Dream appear to have incorrectly set the initial levels of the 128 basic sounds - the mix balance is poor. Additionally, long sounds tend to be cut off due to the lack of sufficient polyphony. Inability to edit sounds, no effects, insufficient polyphony, and poor sound quality... If you’re a games player who wants to improve on the innate quality of the your Amiga and who owns games that support playback on a GM module, then the GMX-1 might be worthy of consideration. If you’re after a multi-timbral
sound module that will help you to create music, you'll probably want to look elsewhere - possibly at Roland’s SC-7, a cut-down Sound Canvas for *259.
Dream GMX-1 • Zone Distribution 071-738 5444 • £269 need for a Midi interface, much in the same manner as Yamaha's TG100. A stereo pair of phonos for the audio outputs and the external PSU socket complete the rear panel.
Is the GMX-1 a GM module? Not really.
While it conforms to the Sound Set, it only has 16-voice polyphony; any GM sound module must support a minimum of 16 voices. However, the issue is clouded by die fact tliat each voice can by used for either a single instrument (such as piano, strings and so on) or three percussion sounds. So the polyphony depends on the content of the music - for instance, you The Dream GMX-1 is one of the cheapest multi- timbral sound modules on the market - but does it live up to its name? Vic Lennard has his reservations... MUSIC It saya General Midi on the case - but does It live up to It's name ¦

Test Drive BBS 081-395 5096 (24 hours) FidoNet mail echoes are here, plus on-line games like ANSI Warriors, Never Ending Story, Space Empire, plus many more.
If there’s one thing which is more fun than logging on to other BBSs and using them it’s running your own system.
Setting up your own BBS need not he expensive, and just think how much money you'll save having people dial up your BBS rather than calling theirs.
If you're into setting up your own BBS. Try the Rapport system (Big Bang Enterprises, £50). Which is one of die fastest and cheapest ways around to end up with a fully-featured colourful ANSI BBS from scratch in an afternoon.
Few things are as much fun as the Big Bang Burger Bar. Die BBS running under the Rapport system. It’s fun value is due in no small part to the slick and colourful software that the system runs on- It comes on a single disk and is easy to install on your system.
Be warned if you want to set up a BBS of your own you will need a hard disk.
The software is a snip at £50, and upgrades are in the offing like the facility to take feeds for Internet, Usenet and FidoNet Log on to the Big Bang Burger Bar for more information and a live demo.
Users of this BBS have been unwittingly beta testing the software ever since it’s been online, and very good Accessing Rapport's local screen software it is.
The name comes from the Hitch-hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, in case you hadn’t guessed, and the Sysops are Slattibanfast and Gargravarr. The board is liberally seasoned with references to the radio series and b x k.s, and recognising the quotes and all that is almost the mast entertaining tiling about it There is even The Guide, an on-line magazine for BBS travellers to get their bearings in the Galaxy. On-line games, files to up and download, it's all there, and all in professional machine code. Fast and stable.
The system practically installs itself and even lets you log onto your own board from the computer it s tunning on. Meaning you can test out the system without having to log on using a phone.
If there was just one thing I’d change I’d say the documentation isn’t comprehensive enough, but apparently this is all due to change. Rapport is very good stuff at the price but personally I think they should have made it £42!

Complete screaming billy bonkers I was. And finally, finally, Gary Whiteley (video head and sometime contributor to this august tome) remembered he'd had the problem himself and sotted it out for me My system has been all over the place for so long. After years of installing and deinstalling software 1 have for review my hard disks were fragged and running slow. What was needed was a complete re-format and re-install, something which 1 wasn’t really looking forward to as you can imagine.
I installed Worklxmdi 2.1 (hooray) and everything was deeply groovy. My error beep was dianged for a jazzy guitar riff, and all was well with the world. Until I tried to use my modem and Ncomm, and everything went horribly wrong- It was untraceable and intermittent. My copy of Ncomm went bananas sending data all over die shop, and uploads and downloads with MNP and Modern were out of the question. Text re- pasted itself all over the screen randomly. I was not a happy camper. After finally fixing my system I had caused some terminal software problem. I reformatted the hard disks and
checked all the library' versions. I used SnoopDos to find out what was going wrong and it said there wasn't anything wrong.
I told all this to Gary Whiteley just before I blew my brains out with a .44 Magnum and he said don't do that, just turn off the CPU monitor on your Directory Opus. Say what?
Yes it’s true. Turns out it’s not so much either a bug in Dopus or Ncomm, more of a clash. If you use a modem, the CPU monitor on Dopus messes up the timing etc. which explains the intermittent nature of the problem.
I sometimes have Dopus iconified on my WB when I’m working, it s handier that way. And that was everything went crazy. I haven't seen v4 of Dopus as yet. But HiQ are rushing me one as we speak to try out this problem on the new rev. I’ll let you know what happens.
True but strange, as Gaz would say.

n« w*h to rK«N* eromoUoul mat*n»l frtri od*r AMOS the title reads half full. At the three quarter stage, T 0 lines, the title reads Three Quarters. When the bar is finished we get a final bell and: Centre Bell Heft Key The program then waits to be terminated by pressing any key on the Amiga keyboard. This is a classic routine and one which I’ve used on almost every Basic interpreter I've ever encountered.
You can adapt this routine to do a vertical bar by simply changing the order of the loops and reversing the Coordinates so the rather than drawing the bar from left to right you fill ‘er up from the bottom to the top, or even right to left. You could even accompany the drawing with a little calculation to see I don’t know about you, but I’ve always liked those horizontal meters you find in games or application programs which scroll across the screen smoothly to indicate the amount of a task which is completed.
Also in game programs you can have a bar reading of air in your tanks, ammo in your gun. Or energy in your role-playing characters.
As well as being just a meter which goes up and stops at the end, you can do stuff to it to make it go up and down at will, simply by reversing the process with drawing in black ink.
I thought it would be a challenge to try and implement one of these in a short Amos routine, and here it is.
The first step is to title the program, which I wrote, using these words: OK, substitute your own name if you want, I’m not proud, I'm no prima donna. Next we add all the usual guff to clean up the screen and make it ready to use: Curs Off ; Hide ; Piper 0 ; Cls 0 Turn off the cursor and the pointer, set the paper to black (colour 0) and dear die screen.
Next, by way of explanation of what's going on in this program, we put a title up there at the top of the screen: Rea AMS Reter •• Rea •• 199J Snout •• Centre *• Hit 'er up!
Nothing fancy. We'll be overwriting this with other tides as the bar progresses across the screen. Next a hounding box to surround the bar to show roughly where it is in its path: I Ink 5 : Bo. JI,1S To 242,52 leaving a one-pixel gap around where the bar will lx*. Next we set the colour of the ink for the bar, in this case red: Ink i Pleased to meter Any plotted points will be red. Now we set up die initial plot point. This is the dot on-screen where the top left part bar will begin:
* »40 : B=20 Right that's all the setting up, so let's draw our
bar. We do this using a pair of nested loops, one going from 0
to 200 the length of the bar, and one going from 0 to 10, the
height of the bar.
The bar is drawn one dot at a time from 40,20 down ten dots, then we start again at 41,20 and draw it again. As we progress across die screen the dots all merge producing a solid bar: how much of a thing is actually left. Also you can do a reverse drawing of the line in black, erasing it as something in your game runs out, like oxygen or time, or even allowing it to go up and down as you need it to, The beauty of this routine is that it is totally independent of any other routines and will quite happily whiz the bar along at any speed. If unchecked by the WAIT 3 command you will see it all
happens very quickly, so if you have some complex calculations to do at the same time you'll still be able to inc and dec the bar up and down and maintain a respectable speed.
Phil South looks at on-screen meters and tosses in a few hints and tips about using sprites and bobs for J=0 To 200 If J-50 Then Bell : Centre *• Quarter full!
If JMOO Then Bell : Centre *- Rltfaiy there! -* If J-150 then Bell : Centre *¦ Three Quarters! ¦* for 1=0 To 10 Plot A,B»I Rett I * Inc A Milt 3 Neit J After 50 little lines the bell sounds and the message Quarter Full is printed over die tide. At the halfway point, or 100 lines.
Amos Pro heralds a new phase Although Amos Pro is said by some to be 99 per cent bug free I figure that this means that in a 100k program only 1k of it is buggy.
In any event we are inexorably being drawn down the Amos Pro road, as the very final version of Amos Classic is 1.35, due out as update disks and files on your friendly neighbourhood BBS by the time you read this.
The Amos Pro Compiler is rumoured to be ready around now too, which finally makes Pro usable for more than just programming exercises.
Some see this as the end of an era. But I see it being the start of a new phase. I can foresee Amos use being polarised into two camps in the near future, with people using the Amos Classic program for serious program development and building their own extensions to make up for any shortfalls, like the Intuition and Arexx ideas I've heard about recently, and Amos Pro being the public's introduction to the sport, as it were.
What with PCOS only a few miles down the road now. I can see program support being stretched as a flood of new PC users come into the frame, so support will be more reliant upon the old Amos users and the Amos Club. In any event Amos Classic is dead. Long live Classic Amos.

..... 1 SYSTEM r ------------------------- AMFC-£10.00 (Amiga Music File Converter) dinosaurs (2). Geology 121. Solar s Most ProPage and ProDraw users will have played with them. Many will have scratched their heads and wondered what all the fuss is about. Some will adore them but will have got a bit hot under the collar after discovering that a few of them don’t appear to work properly.
I fall into that last class of user, and the “broken’’ ProPage Genie that really upset me was AutoSave, the one that prompts you every so often to save your work.
PUBLISHING Rather than wait for Gold Disk to fix it (fat chance!) 1 decided to have a go myself.
The first job was to find out exactly what the program was supposed to do. And this I did by "reading" the program. With the Commodore Arexx manual and the ProPage 3.0 Supplement Manual by my side 1 followed the logic of the program line by line, immediately discovering that the "AutoSave.pprx" program calls a second program named ‘PPageAutoSave. Rexx".
This second program is the meat of the AutoSave Genie, the code that actually puts up the prompts and saves the file, and because the Arexx language is so English-like 1 very quickly worked out that the program puts up a file requester if the document is still untitled, otherwise it simply saves the file with the existing filename.
To work properly the program has to strip the actual name of the document away from the path. So. For instance, the string "Work: DTP Ppage Docs MyDoc' has to be turned into just “MyDoc".
By experimenting w ith the Genie I discovered that if the path and file name of the document was just "Device:Filename” or “Device:Directory Filename" - “Work:MyDoc" or ‘Work:PPage MyDoc" for example - then the Genie worked perfectly.
Bug located But if there was more than one directory between the device and the filename, the “AutoSave?” prompt would come up after the first waiting period, but clicking Yes didn't save it and the prompt would never return.
Aha! I’d found the bug. It must be in the code that strips the filename away from the path.
Luckily this code was easy to find as it is a separate procedure called splitpathO. Little clue there in the procedure name.
The first thing this procedure does is use the posO command to look for the first occurrence of a backslash in the complete path and filename string.
If it finds one, it remembers where it is in the string in the spos variable. If there’s no backslash it sets spos to zero, and goes to looks for a colon (in order to strip the filename away from the device name) and remembers the colon's position in the vpos variable.
If both variables end up being set to zero, it already has a filename without a path, so there’s no splitting required, and the procedure sends the same string that was passed to it back splitpath: procedure eipote dneae do vpos s 0 ¦ spos : lastposC ', dneae) if spos = 0 then do vpos s post':', dnut) if vpos r 0 I spos = 0 thtn return dneae end file = substrtdnm, m(vpoi, spot) * 1) return file end Listing I, showing ths changes made to the main program.
Otherwise it uses the larger of the two numbers held in spos and vpos to strip tlie name away from the path.
The problem lied in the very' first line of the procedure, which was looking for the first occurrence of a backslash in the path and filename string. If there was more than one directory, the routine passed on a filename that was headed by one or more directory names.
Thus, when the file came to be saved, the directories in that string didn't actually exist within the current directory, so AmigaDQS could not save the file as requested.
What the procedure needed to do was look for and remember the position of the last backslash in the string, and a quick flick through the Arexx manual Magic in the air Ben Pointer waves his logical wand and brings the Gold Disk AutoSave Genie back from the dead revealed that there was a lastposO command which did just this. I altered the code, rebooted and ran the AutoSave Genie.
It didn't work.
I stared at the code on the screen. The logic was perfect right up to the actual substrt) command that did the string splitting. This command first looked to see which of the variables. Spos and vpos. Held the largest value, added one to that and used that numl er as the starting position in the whole string from which to start stripping.
Ah. But would it? If spos is non-zero the code which looks for and assigns a value to vpos is never executed. And the maxO command, which returns the largest value from a list of values, according to the Arexx manual, must be supplied with a list of values of the same type. If vpos was not being assigned a value it had no type, so the max() command was not executing properly.
I added a line to the start of the procedure that assigned a value of zero to vpos. If there was no backslash in the string then the code that looked for a colon would be executed and the value of vpos would be changed accordingly, or set again to zero if no colon was found.
If the code the sets vpos is not executed this means that spos is non-zero (a backslash has been found) so setting the value of vpos to zero at the start won t matter because spos will be a higher value than this anyway.
So now, when the max() command was executed vpos always had a numerical value, and therefore was of die same type of variable as spos, and so the command would work properly.
I tried again. It worked. And it works perfectly every time.
Bliss! 1 now have an AutoSave feature in ProPage.

Not siop- 'ng, I’ll he looking at two new developments in CD-ROM drive technology- and the possible future of Amiga CD systems.
With the coming of the A600 and later the A1200, Amiga owners have a new interface medium. PCMCIA. This provides a low cost, compact interface that can be used for a wide variety of input mediums and will dius have a considerable effect on not just Amiga, but industry-wide multimedia applications.
But just what is this new interface and what will it offer to you and me? In short, it is a set of standards, laid down in August 1990. Which cover the physical aspects of a range of credit card sized devices which bring new levels of power to us.
All PCMCIA cards feature a 68-pin connector. There are different heights for the cards, with the various PCMCIA version numbers determining the height.
Thus Version 1 cards are 3 3mm thick. Version 2 (as found on the Amiga) 5mm, while Version 3 are 10.5mm. The recently announced Version 4 are 16mm thick.
The need for different heights comes from the ever-increasing need to cram more into PCMCIA cards.
The earliest cards were designed simply for memory upgrades. The latest release (16mm) was implemented to facilitate, and I jest not. The emerging range of credit card sized hard drives. Other developments on the format include modems, adapters and fax modems.
More interesting however, for us at least, is the range of interfaces now appearing on PCMCIA cards. One of the problems of the lower end Amigas for development of multimedia applications is that they arc limited in the what peripherals you can use.
Bright future on the cards While you can get hardware upgrades to provide different types of input, many go inside, and you an only fit one or possibly two at once.
Still, it's not so bad, you can unplug then, hut do you fancy constantly having to open your Amiga just to “grab" a different type of data?
With PCMCIA you’ll be able to chop and change between MULTIMEDIA say a frame grabber, SCSI-based scanner and sound sampler simply by dropping in a different card - what could be simpler.
These and odter cards are already on their way. They are also scheduled to be fairly low cost.
The long and short of this is that PCMCIA should spur on a whole new generation of Amiga multimedia software. If you're an Amiga owner PCMCIA will bring you immense benefits. But there are problems.
There arc already some developers releasing upgrades that are not compatible with the PCMCIA slot, and even worse require you to disable this expansion card first!
The Amiga has enough problems as it is without the hindrances from developers who take short-cuts. The message is clear - check when buying an Amiga peripheral or upgrade. If it isn't fully compatible with the PCMCIA interface don't buy it!
Julius Alexander reports on the latest PCMCIA technology and even faster CD-ROM drives CD-ROM gets a dose of speed As Amiga users, we are more than aware of the speed at which computer technology develops.
Look at how, for instance, the shape of home computing has changed in just six months with the advent of 32-bit systems from both Commodore and Atari.
But what can you do with CD-ROM drives?
How can you make them faster? You can't increase the speed of a CD-ROM drive can you?
After all. How fast can you make a sliver of plastic spin?
Well, several of the world's leading CD-ROM drive manufacturers have announced new CD- ROM mechanisms which do just this, and in the process slash access time by half.
Last year NEC announced a CD-ROM drive that spins twice as fast as normal. Pioneer have announced a mechanism which can spin CD discs at four times faster than normal speed!
This generates a sensational transfer rate of over 1 Mb second at times, compared to the measly 153Kb second of the existing A570.
Obviously these high speed drives have to slow down for normal audio data, which requires a rate of 153Kb. But for interactive movies... And there's more! New developments from Nimbus means that the amount of data that can be stored on a single CO disc has been almost doubled.
Currently the maximum length of movie that can be stored on a CD (as set by Sony Philips ruled Red Book) is just 75 minutes • nothing given an average cinema film is now around 120 minutes. But by mid-summer, a suitable MPEG compression chipset should also be widely available - see previous columns. Combine the above three, and you can easily get a full length interactive movie, with CD quality, stereo sound on a single disc!
Thus the biggest problems that have prevented such movies appearing on Cds have been over come. So how does all this affect Amiga CD technology?
Well. Commodore are rumoured to be working on new Amiga CD systems and I predict you'll see at least one of these new technologies incorporated into these new products.
The only question remaining is whether Philips or 3D0. Which I'll be looking at next month, get there first.
Philips have already put back their FMV release date until Autumn 93. So they are unlikely to make it - but 3D0 with its mid-93 launch is more of a threat.

hardware and software social scene, including Power Computing's A1200 RAM FPU card, ADI Junior and several noteworthy educational packages Pinned to the petri dish In this month s microscopic examination of one of the Amiga s fields of excellence, the enquiring reader will no doubt be delighted to find a clutch of the very best music programs Hard times Our latest foray into the hardware jungle returns, bringing a full reconnaissance report on the strengths and weaknesses of the ever more popular hard drive Locator Find any product sold by our advertisers, anywhere, ot a glance, with the Amiga
Market product Locator - a new concept in home shopping ince the A4000 was released last year, we've 3 been waiting for the machine to make the AGA Amiga line-up complete, the mid-level machine to fill the gap between the corporate A4000 and the base level A1200.
We finally got it this month with the A4000 030 and, though much more realistically priced than the A4000, it is still more expensive than its competitors, the cheap 486 done and the Mac LCII.
The question this raises is that although confirmed Amiga enthusiasts and serious users will no doubt see it as an affordable AGA platform for multimedia, DTP and video work, the A4000 030 could find convincing the rest of the world a somewhat more difficult task.
Competition for sales of any machine is intense in every market from games to education, and for Commodore to succeed with a non-mass market machine they must price it aggressively.
Arguments put forward by Commodore to support their marketing strategies for the A3000 and A4000 040 are that the machines are designed to appeal to a corporate market which is more interested in results and quality than cutting costs, a sort of "no-one ever got fired for buying an A4000" approach.
To a certain extent, this is a sensible policy as it allows dealers and consultants to hike an impressive mark-up with the more expensive products, taking more money from the same percentage margin.
However, the cheaper 68030 version of the top level Amiga is unlikely to reach this strata of big-spending multimedia men, at least not in its basic configuration with 80Mb hard drive and 4Mb RAM.
In this machine's case, expansion through the CPU slot, by adding either a 68040 or 68040 with DSP, gives it extra appeal with its upward expandability, but for the average enthusiast user the price of the base level machine will be the vital statistic.
Predictions as to the nature of the A2400, a machine which will now never appear, were for an AGA machine running a 68030 in a pizza-style box containing perhaps two Zorro slots with one doubling as a video slot.
In addition, the inclusion of a PCMCIA card would have given such a machine more upgrade options for the aspi- rant A1200 user. What eventually marched through the gates of Commodore Towers was a cut down version of the A4000 with a 68030, full desktop case with four Zorro slots, and no PCMCIA.
J -J Basic specification for hard drives seems to have been sensibly raised to the 80Mb level, but RAM has been reduced to 2Mb chip and 2Mb fast, figures which will be strained quite quickly given the nature of Workbench 3.0 and 24-bit or Ham8 graphics.
Commodore's policy of never supplying a monitor as part of the standard package, a policy which - funnily enough - they don't apply to their PC division, is continued, SO the COSt of the A4000 030 system is really something around £1,250 when a cheap VGA-only monitor is added, or £1,400 with a Commodore multisync.
At this price, many will decide that a PC clone or one of the 68030-based Macintoshes is a better all-round buy.
Of course, we all know that the PC done is a dinosaur barely disguised by a few tacky go-faster stripes and that the Mac is restricted in the tasks to which it can be put without access to funds of almost defence budget proporiJ iJj
i) j ill A high end Amiga, the A4000 030, has finally dragged its
weary body below the £1,000 mark, but is it still overpriced
and under-powered?
Tions, but preaching to the converted will never expand the Amiga's user base.
We cannot afford to let the Amiga become the domain of a tightly huddled and anoraked group of fanatics who communicate only between themselves, nor can we expect the machine to succeed when other platforms offer perfectly good solutions to productivity requirements for less outlay.
This magazine has never faltered in its assertion that for long term survival the Amiga must not only succeed in the rarified high-end multimedia field, but must also compete in the ultra-vicious middle market where the cheap PC done has gained the high ground and the Macintosh has become increasingly entrenched.
The A4000 030 meets most of the requirements for such a machine with one important exception: Price, An A4000 030 with VGA monitor for £999.99 rather than the same machine on its lonesome would present to the non-Amiga world (much the greater part of it, in other words) a machine which for value and power simply could not be matched by either the PC or the Mac.
PC 1204 4Mb RAM expansion with optional 68882 FPU Supplier Power Computing Phone: 0234 843388 Price: £185.95 The latest A1200 peripheral is superb value for money I t doesn't take long for the computing companies at I lar£e 10 surt kn x*ing oul bolt-on goodies for new machines but Power Computing seem to have a knack for bringing out hardware that is a cut above the rest This particular piece is a 4Mb RAM expansion for the A1200.
And for a change the features that it boasts are for real and not just marketing bumf.
Crammed on to the neat little card which slots into the A1200‘s CPU trapdoor are a row of fast ZIP chips giving the user that all-important extra fast RAM. A battery- backed clock and a socket for the addition of anything up to a SOMHz 68882 floating point unit (FPU). A separate oscilator socket stands ready to accept the timing chip supplied with each FPU.
In its standard configuration with 4Mb RAM but no FPU. The PC 1204 gave the office A1200 a surprising little speed boost, a result no doubt of the fast zero wait state design of the board and the availability to the system of its 70ns fast RAM.
Screen refreshes in particular were faster and the general operation of the machine as a whole was improved by the addition of the board. One gratifying area in which performance was bettered was when playing huge and memory-hungry games such as Wing Commander or B17.
When a 68882 FPU chip is installed, the speed improvement is more marked, but users will really see some action when a maths-intensive application such as Imagine is used. All such operations become smoother and faster, especally where a version of a package exists which is designed specifically to use the 68882. And the addition of one of the faster chips on offer - 33MHz or above - turns the unassuming A1200 into a powerful rendering engine.
Beyond the RAM and FPU options, the PC 1204 offers - as mentioned - a battery-backed dock: a feature maybe not appreciated by games players but which any serious user of wouldn't be without. Calendar programs, diaries, organisers, spreadsheets, wordprocessors • you name it, they all benefit from the existence of a permanent system clock which is always set to the correct time.
At £184.95 for 4Mb RAM and anything from £74 upwards for a 68882. The Power Computing PC 1204 is easily the best peripheral of the bunch this month.
Gasteiner Scan-King 64 greyscale mono hand scanner As soon as you clap eyes on Scan-King you think it’s going to be a real waste of time. The scanner itself is packaged In one of those really naff shrink wrap-type hard plastic covers, the kind you would expect on really cheap child’s toys made in Taiwan.
And the name doesn't really instil you with confidence. I mean come on, Scan King? What next, Monster Modem?
Aside from that, the actual gear itself seems to be very sturdy if a bit bog standard and software is only on one disk which is a bit of a relief, but the packaging really does leave a lot to be desired.
I couldn't read the manual because we were sent the German one by mistake. Luckily the software was in English so I struggled on. On loading the package you are presented with a list of icon tools down the left- hand side of the screen - just your average art package tools, spray can and pencil facilities but it stuck me as being very jerky and inaccurate. Also, the icons are very big and clumsy.
To remedy this I went to Screen format, put the screen into interlace and made the bitplanc value higher. This had a dramatic effect - it made all the different gradients of shading smooth instead of half tone dots and the tools looked much better. Why the programmers didn’t set the program to run in interlace in the first place is beyond me.
Actually making a scan is really easy - don’t worry about all the buttons and switches on the scanner, as the only one you really need to bother with is the brightness control. You can control what DPI you will be scanning at, but it’s best to just get yourself started first and concentrate on such things later.
When you choose Scan from the menu bars you will be asked how wide and how long you want to made the scan. This is fine but the software doesn’t limit you to the width of the scan. This is a bit silly really because the scanner is only 100mm or so wide.
To scan, you must place the scanner at the top tA the piece of artwork and slowly pull down. Once I had an image in RAM I was most pleased with the variety of effects and tools that were available. There were various flips and image filters - but they do take a hell of a long time to work.
The most handy were the 90 degree and 180 degree flips which you use quite often because it is not always possible to scan your image the right way up.
Bear in mind that this equipment is designed especially for the A500 - there is no way you can run it on any other Amiga. Also you will have to put up with the sometimes painfully slow screen updates and be prepared to wait a long time for some of the tools to work.
Itr scans up to 400dpi which is good enough for any sort of work you would be doing at home unless you wish to scan transparencies, in which you’re looking as spending no less than £ 1,000.
Mickeys I23's is one of a series of American releases devel* oped by Disney Software. As you've probably already guessed this is the same Disney of cartoon feme so all the characters in the programmes are the more famous cartoon stars like Mickey Mouse. Goofy and so on.
The package oozes quality - it is the type of program you could quite happily take off the shelf and thinking you would be all right in buying. It looks wonderful, complete with jaunty Mickey stuck on the cover. But as the program unfolds it seems that more time has been spent on the box than on the game.
For starters, it comes on twp disks and is not hard drive installable. As a colleague of mine pointed out. If this program had been on the PC no*one would have touched it because it is not hard drive installable so why should we have to put up with programs such as these which boot from floppy?
When it opens Mickey is asleep in his living room chair, First you must wake him up and choose where he must go and what he will do. At this point I was seconds into the package and alarm bells were already ringing.
I was working with the manual beside me and following it to the letter but the action was incredibly slow. The machine tends to access the disk for some length of time then the screen will burst into frantic movement for a second of two then it will go dead again while it's accessing the disk.
In any other type of software this would be tolerable but because it’s children's software you can’t afford to have long gap where the child is not entertained.
Everybody knows that children as a rule have an attention span of about half a second and they must be kept engaged. I really don't think that Mickey's ABC would stand up in a classroom.
Another thing which I found very unusual is the lack of educational content. Most of the sub-applications don't actually demand anything from the pupil.
To me the program is directed at pre-school children because a lot of the time it is dealing with concepts instead of actual numbers. It tries to introduce the child the ideas of more or less and quantities.
There are some nice reward sequences when you finish levels and some good sound effects to keep the children engaged but there is no long lasting appeal.
Mickeys I23’s ADI Junior - Reading and Counting Supplier: Europress Software Phone: 0625 859333 Price: £19.95 each Following on from the highly successful Fun School educational software range (with which regular readers will be familiar thanks to modules given away on recent Amiga Computing CoverDisks) are ADI and ADI junior from Europress Software.
Four packages arrived for review - ADI Junior Reading for age groups four to five and six to seven, and ADI Junior Counting, for the same two age groups.
The ADI packages contain a number of features - many of them unique - which stand them apart from much educational software, and help the child using them to do so more easily and successfully.
The ADI character himself is a prime example. Inherited (downwardly!) From the ADI packages aimed at older children.
ADI Junior is a cute and cuddly alien who will guide your child through the package, popping up at relevant points to scold or smile and generally poking his nose in to find out what's going on just at those moments when a child might appreciate his being there.
For instance, click on Quit from something and ADI will appear, nodding his head at the "Yes" icon and shaking it at the “No". His presence adds a comfortable coherence to the proceedings and will make the package feel far more user-friendly to a computer-shy child (does such a thing exist?).
For your money you get three disks, a manual, some colour- coded copy protection booklets, a concise list of the games and exercises contained in the package, and a registration card, which as always is worth sending back to the manufacturer in order to ensure information regarding upgrades and the like.
Loading the program is simply a case of slipping the disk marked ‘‘El" (for "environment”) into your drive and turning the machine on, The program will load automatically, asking you for some identification from one of the copy protection booklets at some point in the procedure.
Correctly input and you are led into ADI’s Environment - a unique land which forms the centre of ADI’s world for the duration of any playing session.
The Environment is best described as a kind of pictorial, child-optimised Workbench, from where ypu can access any number of functions.
When the mouse pointer changes into a beige pointing hand, whatever object it is positioned over will, when clicked upon, perform some kind of animation. For instance, the tortoise will roll over and laugh, before running off, when “tickled".
When the mouse pointer is a red hand pointing, clicking on the object concerned will initialise an activity of some kind. This could be a tile puzzle or a simple racing game; an infants' paint package or a time-telling exercise. Whatever is selected, though, is simply for the child's amusement, and does not “score" anything measurable.
The idea is that the child gets comfortable with the use of the machine and the software - what better way for a youngster to become initiated than through an appealing pictorial world where clicking on anything interesting elicits some km of response?
The place where the packages differ, however, and the part where the “real'' learning and assessing goes on, is in th« Applications. Each package comes with two unique disks containing its Applications.
These are the bits that are tailored to suit the age groups mentioned, and each contains well over a dozen activities which are assessable by the parent.
To use the Applications, the user puts the correct Application disk into the drive and clicks on the door in the Environment Then a "book" showing what is available for loading appears, and you simply select the chosen Application.
Here is where I have a gripe with the packages. The manuals are shared between PC and Amiga users, which I can put up with, even if they do become unclear in places (why do I need a Microsoft mouse?). What I don't like is the fact that - as far as I could tell - there is no way of installing the Amiga version of the program to hard disk.
Not only is this a pain for the increasing number of Amiga owners who have hard disks, but we are snubbed further in the instruction book when it boasts about how, if you put all your applications in the same place on your hard drive, you car choose from a huge library every time you go to the Applications selection sheet.
As it is, we Amigans are limited by the number of activities which can be held on one floppy disk, with all the waiting and disk switching which this entails for the serious education-package user. Come on Europress, we buy hard DRIVEs too!
The younger Reading package is based around the idea of a storybook - something familiar to most children of that age. One would hope. The child's vocabulary is strengthened in key areas such as the home. Food, animals and so on.
There are games to be discovered and exercises to be completed - I particularly liked ADI Junior's Gymnastics, which is similar to the Simon Says games I remember from my childhood.
In this variant, the child is encouraged to copy what ADI Junior is doing, by making a robot do the same things - a fun activity requiring a lot of thought. This is something I can personally testify to!
This particular set of Applications cover a good deal of National Curriculum Attainment Target Level I's requirements, touching upon the requirements for Level 2 as well. However.
ADI Junior Reading for six and seven-year-olds - being naturally more complicated and advanced - completely fulfils level I. touching on all areas of Levels 2 and 3 too.
Here, the Applications are based in a farmyard. And the package aims to improve reading and writing skills. Using difficulty levels which can be changed by the child as well as the parent or guardian, it is possible for children of varying abilities to extract an equal amount of use from this and, indeed, all the other Applications.
Exercises fine-tune and develop essential skills such as recognition of common letter groups, reading with understanding and vocabulary, white still working on more general development of skills such as observation, logic and judgement Run, rabbit.
M V V j* m m mrviri ir4 0 =; tW, Is j[§liW K Judicious use of digitised speech from ADI as well as sound effects and the user-friendliness described earlier ensure that, if the child needs help at the beginning, he or she will soon be happily bashing away at the keyboard unattended.
The younger of the two Counting packages is set in the rather cosy environment of a rabbit's den. The rabbit - who bears more than a slight resemblance to Bugs Bunny - is as cartoony and appealing as the rest of the characters who appear in the packages.
Spatial, number and algebra skills are all developed as is, of course, the ability to count. When the child is confident at counting pictures, they can be replaced with real numbers, and a calculator helps to develop practical number usage.
The use of everyday objects such as marbles, seeds and clowns in the 15 activities present help to make the child comfortable, and any child who scores well on all of these will have fully satisfied Attainment Target Level I and a sizeable chink of Level 2 in the National Curriculum. The more senior counting package expands upon these skills to the point where a parent could expea a child to be fully up to the standard of the contentious Key Stage I Standard Assessment Test (SAT) and realistically to be able to pass Stage 2. The more advanced exercises - such as The Candle Game, where the
child is encourages to match the right sums to given answers - exercise skills to the standard of SAT Level 3. Set in a fairground, the package develops observation. Memory, size and shape comparisons, and how shapes take up space.
Overall, the ADI packages are as useful as they are fun.
From a child’s point of view, they're colourful, noisy and compelling, and from the parent or guardian's viewpoint, highly accessible by means of a function key-activated "scorecard" containing detailed results which allow the parent to advise the child's teachers as to which areas he or she may be in need of extra help - or the opposite.
There are gripes. As mentioned, the inability to install to hard disk is a frustrating decision by the programmers. And also the password protection - which feels like one of the exercises when you're playing it - could have been far more user friendly.
Personally I do not agree with distracting the user from what he or she has bought in order to access an obscure code from a booklet, but some say this is a necessary evil. Still, it would have been nice if the colours asked for on-screen matched those in the printed booklet!
But on the plus side, the programs are able to save to disk details of a child's progress, meaning that the use of ADI is an intelligent, developing set of lessons rather than a simple load- from-scratch affair.
This ability, tied in with the intrinsic learning value present in a well presented and thought-through package of this type, adds up to a set of programs of immeasurable value to the diligent parent ? V22b MNP4+5 Modem. Professional quality. Cost £400. £120 ono. Mike 0765 606366.

Two megabytes of RAM should be enough for most uses unless the user is planning on using lots of gigantic samples, and a hard drive would be best, but the Midi equipment requirements are as expensive as your budget and ambitions will allow.
For any kind of serious work, a Midi interface and Midi compatible keyboard with its own built-in voices are essential. After this initial investment the user can start to look at mixers, four-tracks, monitors, microphones and so on, right up to 16-bit sampling equipment and near-studio quality modules such as the Roland CM range.
A member of the AC staff, who shall remain nameless, recently spent £650 in one hour at an Amiga show OP just this sort of kit, so don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Bars and Pipes Pro 2 Bars and Pipes Pro (BBP) is easily the most modern and easy to use Amiga sampler around. It's interface is designed to take the software hassles out of the music creation process and leave the composer to get on with the job at hand.
With release 2 and the inclusion of direct control over multimedia events. BPP is now also the most powerful and flexible Amiga sequencer.
As the name of the package suggests, the BPP interface is controlled via bars and pipes which represent the channels going into and out of the sequencer through which all Midi data passes To alter the Midi data as it passes through, the user simply selects one of the tools available and drops it into the pipeline rather like adding an ingredient to a recipe. Unlike most recipes, however, these ingredients can be shuffled around or dispensed with at the user's discretion, encouraging experimentation more than any other sequencer.
Under the colourful interface. BPP is a powerful sequencer with a full range of SMPTE options and system exclusive commands. So it is ideal both for the inexperienced composer looking for a “suck it and see" sequencer and the seasoned user alike.
Supplier Meridian Software Distribution Phone: 081-543 3500 Price: £299 KCS Sequencer 3.5 One of the most powerful sequencers available on the Amiga.
KCS (from Dr Ts, one of the oldest music companies in the Amiga market) does just about everything, and in a very professional way.
The program is not ideal for the beginner, however, as both the software and the manual make assumptions about the user's knowledge of Midi and musk in general.
The package has a modular approach which it calls the Multi Program Environment (MPE). Including the Tiger software for graphical editing, the Automix mixing program, and Quickscore for generating traditional sheet music On the ST side, over 30 fJ u u u _r Making music the modern way is a doddle with an Amiga. We look at some packages designed to help you such modules exist, though the package has enough to be getting on with, so we could see many more addoons to MPE appear in the future.
Overall. KCS is ideal for the professional or very venous home Midi enthusiast as it packs in a vast array of powerful Midi features, but is not recommended for the beginner or occasional songster. It could use some friendly front-end graphics, but apart from this there’s very little that the package lacks.
Zone Distribution Phone: 081-738 5444 Price: £279 Superjam!
Superjam, from Blue fbbbon Soundworfo (makers of Bars and Pipes) is the ultimate beginner's package because it is designed almost to write the mutrt by its* Based heavily on the same graphical front end as Bars and Pipes. Superjam' is extremely easy to use and capable of producing some excellent Output Superjam! Isn't nearly as powerful as the traditional high- end sequencers, but as it has been designed to carry out a different function, thu isn't a big problem. In basic terms.
Superjam! Is a band-wa-box containing stx built-in musicians who can be toW to pfay variations on certain chords In any style the user desires.
For instance. 4 requiring a blues number in C. C. and D. the user need only supply the chords and select a style from the style list and the musicians toddte off on their own as the ultimate dedicated backing band To avoid repetition, each musician can play up to 16 variation in any one section of the song, which means there is a total of 16 million potential backing tunes. When the user is ready, he or she just jumps in with the selected instrument Not best looked upon as a full-blown sequencer. Superjam! Is great fun and a handy tool for those in need of a little inspiration.
As a standalone musk package, however, it has its limitation, and can’t offer the more advanced features found in the dedicated sequencers.
Supplier: Meridian Software Phone: 081-534 3500 Price: £99 Sequencer One Plus The Gadjits sequencer is a fairly new product and the Plus version a major revision, so it’s not surprisingly one of the most modem, easy to use sequencers. Fortunately. Sequencer One Plus is also one of the most powerful.
The "Diamond Drag" editing system used in the package is probably the easiest graphical editing feature around, and gives the user total control over the finished sound.
Using it. The novice or seasoned user can simply drag a point on screen with the mouse to alter existing sounds or create new ones.
There are plenty of powerful Midi features packed in under the surface as with the other modem gliay sequencers, such as Midi system exclusive commands, very flexible Midi timing and pan volume controls, and a track and cue sheet screen with 32 tracks.
Allied to the tape deck-style controls provided for many standard operations, the Sequencer One Plus combination of power and ease of use is hard to beat.
Supplier Gadjits Music Software Phone:061-236 2515 Price: £159.90 OctaMED Pro 4 Having been spawned by a shareware program known and loved by thousands of Amiga musos, OctaMED should need little introduction. It is an eight-channel sequencer with basic graphics and lots of powerful features given the price, and the first stop for anyone thinking of making a start in Midi.
Buying OctaMED won't break the budget, but it will give the user some idea of whether or not they have the talent to produce original musk OctaMED does everything a beginning muso could ask for. It supports Midi, can be used as sampling software with sampling hardware, there's a built-in sample editor, synth sounds can be created from scratch The program is good enough to keep the beginner going for a long time while the exorbitant asking price for the power sequencers is saved up. And is a very cheap way to find out if you have it in you. Look out for earlier versions whkh are now available
in the public domain.

VFM GVP A500 HD8+ As is usually the case with GVP hardware, their HD* series is fast, reliable, flexible and thanks to a recent slash in price a lot more affordable than you might imagine.
If quality counts you can't go far wrong with a drive that’s not only one of fastest on the market but also boasts the option of an additional 8Mb of fast RAM. A SCSI port and a game switch which unlike some doesn't disable the on-board RAM.
As with almost all hard disks there's a whole range of sizes available starting from 42Mb stretching right up to 213Mb. If you're interested in the basic version it will set you back a very reasonable £299.
Supplier Silica Systems Phone:081-309 11II Price £299 (42Mb unpopulated) Ashcom ADD- Hard 42Mb Last but not least we arrive at a real punter product in the form of Ashcom’s ADDHard 42Mb. Not perhaps the most inspiring tide ever to adorn a drive but if it’s value you're after, who cares what it's wiled?
The drive itself is the ultimate in simplicity, no SCSI port - although the drive itself is a quantum, no RAM expansion, no PSU, just a bargain basement price tag which suits the basic do- the-job design.
It’s small and rather unassuming in comparison to the style of the GVP and AT drives, but still retains a modicum of minimalis- tic dignity.
It comes completely formatted with either Workbench 1.3 or 2 so installation is a simply case of plug in and you're off. If you're after a cheap and cheerful introduction to hard disk use without any of the frills offered by the opposition, the Ashcom is just about ideal, especially if you're on a tight budget Supplier Ashcom Design and Developments Ltd Phone: 0530 411485 Price: £265 (42Mb drive) HARD TIMES i ...... . I The shopper's guide to buying a hard disk, so if you're thinking about that big investment, this is the place to start looking IVS Trumpcard 500AT The AT comes in a very
pleasing Amiga-esque moulded plastic case complete with power and access lights It arrives minus a PSU. But it doesn't appear to suffer from any power problems, even when equipped with a fuff complement of 8Mb of RAM.
Both the drive and RAM are extremely economic concerning power but even so an option for an external PSU has been added. The reason for this seemingly unnecessary option is the drive's DMA-through port This option allows the connection of CD-ROMs and other side slot peripherals without the need to remove your drive - a problem which haunts a tot of the opposition.
With a reasonably quick 42Mb Quantum. Up to 8Mb of RAM.
DMA pass-through and arguably the best and certainly the easiest installation software on the market the AT is one of the most attractive options around.
The only problem with a 42Mb AT interface as opposed to the equally spacious SCSI drives offered by the opposition is that of speed and expandability.
Although about average for speed transferring 530k per second. Its mam downfall is its inability to daisychain extra drives, a la SCSI.
K however one drive will be more than enough and you find that DMA access is essential to you. The AT is a very attractive option.
Supplier MicroPACE Distribution Phone: 0753 551888 Price: £299 (unpopulated 42Mb drive) A530 Turbo As a logical progression to the HD+. The A530 Turbo is an obvious choice. Although physically Identical to the aforesaid HD* the A530 is a different kettle of fish altogether.
Although not strictly just a hard disk it's well worth a mention especially for those who take computing seriously.
As you may have guessed thanks to the reference to 32-bit RAM, the unit also boasts a 40MHz 68030 which can be fined with an optional 68882 co-processor When the combination of hard disk, accelerator. FPU and RAM are put together you're dealing with a powerful beast which on pure speed will easily outgun a standard Amiga 3000.
On top of all of this, both the HD* and A530 will accept the services of a plug-in Vortex 286 PC emulator which somehow manages to squeeze in among the growing band of components.
Supplier Silica Systems Price: £699 (Basic unit - 42Mb hldrive) Phone: 081-309 I III Rossmoller Hard Disk In the best tradition ol capitalism, Gasteiner have joined the fray with their new AlfaPower drive which offers all the basics at a very reasonable price. The unit can vary between 40 and 120Mb while housing Up to 8Mb of RAM courtesy of cheap and cheerful Zip chips.
In order to keep costs down to a minimum the AlphaPower comes with an IDE as standard with the option to go for either a full size or
2. 5in drive. The advantage of the
2. Sin is that it's ideal if you decide AlfaPower to invest in an
A1200 later on.
Although fairly basic with simple on offs for the drive and any additional RAM, a DMA thru-port has been provided plus a ribbon cable pass-thru on the rear allowing additional drives to be appended to the controller.Like most of the drives on offer, power is supplied by the Amiga, however an input for an external PSU is available if required
- in our tests it wasn't. As for speed, the AlfaPower is quite
respectable and matches up well to the other IDEs in the
roundup.
All in all this is probably the best basic hard drive on the market with all the essentials, reasonable speed and a price that puts it at the top of the budget buyers shopping list.
Supplier Gasteiner Phone:081-365 1151 Price: £199 plus £69 per 2Mb of RAM Or to give it its full title, the Rossmoller 52Mb Quantum.
Although the word Quantum is synonymous with quality it must be said that the hardware around it doesn't quite match up.
Unlike the majority of drives mentioned, the Rossmoller doesn't have the option of adding any additional RAM. In addition power is provided solely by the Amiga.
Another minor irritation is that although the drive is a SCSI there's no way of daisy-chaining additional drives to your existing Quantum. However the unit does offer a DMA pass-through allowing you to exploit the services of scanners and the like... The drive arrives pre-formatted. So all you have to do is add the software of your choice. If you don't want whistles and bells and can live without LEDs, the Rossmoller is a respectable bargain basement investment Supplier Sysons Associates Phone:081-907 2100 Price: £319 BARBAROSSA JUNE 1941 Price £17.00 unboxed Available for Amiga A500.
