Référencé your correspondence regardtug wishes for a favourite Amiga,! confess to upgrading to an A500 Pius shortiy after its release but was not caught out again by the A600.! am stm waiting for a 32-bit machine with a bmit-in hard drive (preferably SCSi) and sufficient memory to run my iatest upgraded WP and DTP software which at présent! cannot use due to waiting for such a machine. The computer should be complete in one casing and not need endless piug-in items such as power packs, second floppy drives, hard drives, accelerators, and so on to make it a worthwhile combinahon. A composite and complete unit seems commonpiace in the PC worid, yet the Amiga continues to rely on additions! piug-in units to achieve its true potential, even though this involves an untidy mess of interconnections which is unreliable and space-consuming. How about a 32-bit Amiga A2400 iaptop with choice of CPU and memory size to suit the individual's taste, requirements, and pocket, complete with bmit-in PSU, floppy, and hard drive to reaüy compete with the PC iaptops?

Performance Comparison AMIGA 400 040 AMIGA RING 0543 419999 FOR MORE DETAILS 1 MI230XA AMIGA 400 030 AMIGA 1200 DMA ENSURES HIGHEST PRACTICE As with most industries, the UK’s personal computer industry has its share of cowboys operating in the mail order sector and at the receiving end a line up of despairing consumers who have suffered at their hands.
A personal computer is a sophisticated and expensive item and provided the purchaser is dealing with a reputable and accredited supplier, buying a computer by mail order can be a perfectly safe and cost effective exercise. The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) was set up in April 92 to set and maintain high standards for the sake of the industry and society at large, and to ensure that we can continue to regulate our own activities on the basis of proper professional responsibility.
Membership of the DMA is not conferred lightly - it is a privilege which entails responsibilities, to the consumer as well as to the industry. Hie foundation for this must be good practice.
DMA members arc required to abide by the highest standards as laid down in the DMA's code, enforced on members by The Authority of the DMA a separate body with an independent Chairman, and which is an assurance of vigorous self - regulation and professional responsibility.
DMA members also agree, as a condition of membership, to abide by The British Code of Advertising Practice and The British Code of Sales Promotion Practice: to apply the Mailing Preference Service file when appropriate: and to subscribe to the Advertising Standards Board of finance (ASBOF) and to the Mailing Standards Levy as applicable.
The DMA symbol can only be used by members. Printed on stationary , advertising and other promotional material it demonstrates that these companies conform to the Association's high standards and are subject to the DMA's Code of Practice, thus enhancing the companies credibility with customers, suppliers and of greatest importance, the consumer.
Since the symbol was introduced last June, it has become synonymous with quality , professionalism and and responsibility. While it cannot be shown in any way which will become a sign of best industry practice and of strict adherence to DMA codes of conduct. The symbol represents authority for members and reassurance for consumers. It has been a high valued mark of confidence signifying to the consumer the truly professional edge of the industry.
Finally I received a few important letters asking what is the DMA and why is it important to consumers that Indi is part of it. On thais page you will find a letter from the Chairman of the DMA, it's Alison Sian (Director of Public Relations.DMA) IND1 DIRECT MAIL Proudly Presents THE JAKKI BRAMBLES COLUMS Hi, Commodores decision to reduce the price of the Amiga 600 took everyone by surprise and really positions the A600 as the perfect entry level computer .
Of course the problem with new technology is that something has to be left behind and in Commodores case it's the poor old 500.
Now Indi tell me that Commodore are taking back all old A500's when you buy a new state of the an Amiga 1200, So dust off that old A500 make sure that it is in full working order and you still have the mouse, modulator, manuals and power pack. Give Indi a call on 0543 419999 and ask for "Amiga 50ft Trade in Desk". Indi will send Seeuricor to your home and pick up your A500 at their cost and then deliver a superb new Amiga 1200 with £100 off the advertised price. Remember this is a limited olTcr What’s a PCMCIA slot 1 ask? Indi explained to me that its Commodores way of ensuring that both the
Amiga 600 and 1200 can remain future proof. Credit card style memory cards are already available from Indi but thats just the beginning, faxes, modems and network cards are on their way and who knows what else. If you need to know more about PCMCIA why not drop me a line.
On the subject of letters I have been sw amped. It's absolutely great and I promise each one will be responded to and get a signed photograph so keep them coming! Last months w inning letter came from Adrian Simpson of County Down Northern Ireland who gave a very well informed comparison between Amiga and less useful consoles.
I was absolutely knocked out with all the details he sent me concerning the music capabilities of the Amiga. Adrians letter was far too detailed to reprint but a big thankyou to him for writing it. Adrian the prize is on its way.

The new version of this popular front-end software can be run without DOS and be taken onto platforms other than traditional 80x86-based Pcs.
Marketing details are yet to be fixed but according to David its price will be competitive with Pentium (586) Pcs and it will target the mass business market.
He added that the machine will be all things to all men and, unlike many development projects he has seen before, this one looks certain for release.
Asked whether the machine would include a DSP and SCSI-1 i David said: "It's unlikely that we will leave out any spec that is currently available. We would never go backwards."
WORLD EXCLUSIVE by John Butters iR mance. A battery-backed clock comes as standard and the dealer claim it is easy to install. Prices start at £115 for a board populated with 1Mb.
For a version fitted with 5Mb. An oscillator and 16MHz maths co-processor, the cost is £285. With 9Mb, the same board costs £415.
Huge loss forces CBM cost-cutting A THIRD quarter loss of more than $ 177.6 million has forced Commodore to announce a massive restructuring plan aimed at slashing the company’s overheads.
The latest loss includes a $ 65 million writedown on inventory and a provision of $ 70 mil- on for special pricing and promotional allowances, restructuring costs and asset wnte-down.
But at $ 42 million, the firm's operating shortfall was more than expected for the second quarter running and the total loss for the nme months ending March 31 was $ 273.6 ritton.
Durmg the quarter Amiga sales were down 25 per cent, and combined with price-cutting the computer gave a revenue drop of more fan 45 per cent.
“We are extremely disappointed with our "esults for the first nine months of this fiscal year," said Commodore chairman and chief executive Irving Gould.
"We believe that Commodore s technology, orand name and distnbution network continue »o have significant value and we are exerting at of our efforts to restructure the company."
As part of the cost-cutting Commodore UK w shed up to eight after-sales staff, but facing X to economic realities will hurt much more in other countries.
Several offices will be shut, including Austria, the Netherlands. Belgium, Spain and Portugal. Each will have support staff based in Germany.
Sweden and Norway's operation will soon be controlled from Denmark and in the US five dstribution companies will be employed. The iarge West Chester site will stay, 'We could have reported a $ 42 million loss," said Commodore UK's David P'easance.
"But we've made the right provisions for a company of our size - we are not a $ 1 bilkon firm."
The firm's major investor have offered a vote of confidence in the plan, including wav- ng convents until the end of July in order to altow the changes to take place.
"This has been nice because we can restructure how we want to. Rather than go into Chapter 11 and have someone else do it for us.' Said David. “We are predicting a further loss for the next quarter but expect to be back

COMMODORE have an ambitious plan to use the next generation of Amiga graphics to springboard the firm into the mass business market, Amiga Computing can exclusively reveal.
According to the manufacturer's joint general manager David Pleasance, the first product using the technology is due next summer and will combine an Amiga and a PC inside a single case.
He says the "A5000" will build on existing technology with graphics ten times more powerful than the AGA chips found in the A1200 and A4000.
The firm had already announced that future high*end graphics will include four custom chips, a true colour resolution of 1,000 x 1,000 pixels and multiple blitter support.
RISC - standing for Reduced Instruction Set Chip - processing Golden memory boost UP TO 9Mb of 32-bit RAM can now be added to A1200s through a new internal card available from London dealer Golden Image (081*3651102).
When fitted, the card gives the Amiga a maximum memory capacity of 11Mb and an optional maths co-processor and oscillator increase the computer's perforCDTV finds a new home A1200 upgrade deal COMMODORE knocked £100 off the price of an A1200 during a recent trade-in promotion aimed at encouraging A500 and A500P owners to upgrade their computers.
The deal was available through independent dealers during June, when in addition to the £299, buyers handed over a fully-working Amiga with its mouse, power supply and modulator.
The manufacturer said the offer was "an opportunity not to be missed for thousands of enthusiasts" and claim that the 32-bit computer already has 70,000 owners in Britain.
Commodore boss David Pleasance said: “Even though we launched the Amiga 1200 as an extremely advanced, desirable machine, we always saw it as a mass market computer."
"It's already happening and the offer v as aimed at speeding that process up.” ¦ NEWS Printing at high speed... SPEEDJET 300 is the name of Seikosha's new inkjet printer, a model the manufacturer claims offers high quality and low noise printing at up to 300 characters per second.
The firm say high speed printing is available on plain paper, transparencies or envelopes, and is achieved by using a new high capacity print head.
Its 16k printer buffer can be expanded with optional 128k and 256k expansions, and a single-sheet feeder capable of holding up to 100 sheets of paper is supplied.
SpeedjET's fonts include letter quality Dutch 801, Letter Gothic and Courier in arious styles. They can be printed in vertically or horizontally at up to 300 dots per inch.
It includes HP DeskJet 500 emulation and costs 059.

CompuServe cuts costs COMMS giant CompuServe have introduced local dial-up access points in Birmingham and Manchester supporting data speeds up to 9,600 bits per second The firm say they have been introduced as part of their effort to offer easier, reduced cost access to members in the UK. There are about 370 local-dial access points worldwide.
Resolutions and faster screen updates, The board costs £1,598 for the A4000 and £1,498 for the A2(XK).
Upgrades are available, although at the time of going to press prices remained to be fixed A SUBTITLING system suitable for off and on-line production has just been released for the Amiga by Manchester-based Zen Computer Services (061-7931931).
Many of Euro-Titler’s features have been developed for requirements in a broadcast environment and have led to the system being chosen by Granada TV.
A video overlay card enables near-broadcast quality subtitles to be previewed over the source video for off-line work.
On-line the output can be direct from the Amiga or downloaded to an Aston 4 caption generator.
Timing comes from external VITC. LTC or Midi timecode via an external reader or internal VITC LTC card. Alternatively, the Amiga can generate the timing reference.
It features Ascii support, one or two-line subtitles, boxed or unboxed, anti-aliased font support, cue setting and editing facilities, script printout and several timecode reader options, A broadcast version is also available boasting Aston 4 support and external keyer control.
It costs £180 for the standard version, £360 for Euro-Titler Broadcast, £450 for a VITC internal reader card and £530 for an LTC option.
The manufacturer can supply and install fully-configured systems or individual items for existing Amiga users. Complete system prices excluding VCRs start at £1,300.
Bigger Harlequin targets animators ANIMATORS and multimedia users are among those targeted for Harlequin Plus, a new version of the original 32-bit framebuffer from Amiga Centre Scotland (089 687 583).
The board contains a line up of new features including a full screen 4-bit overlay - 16 colours from a palette of 16-8m - which is fully independent of the main 24-bit display.
The Harlequin standard 24-bit output can now be fed through a colour look-up table for real-time gamma correction, colour cycling or colour transformation.
And it also has a true colour 15-bit mode with 32,768 colours and an 8-bit mode with 256 colours, as well as a pseudo-colour 8-bit mode with colour cycling.
Other new functions are a built-in genlock, broadcast standard output synchronisation and signal levels, revised screen mm

Supra speed accelerator SUPRATURBO 28 is a new accelerator that increases the speed of A500 and A2000S from 7MHz to 28MHz. Without requiring the existing processor to be replaced.
According to developer Supra Corporation, tests have shown that the board significantly enhances disk-intensive processes, animations, compiling programs and displaying graphics.
It is compatible with the Amiga’s 68000 processor and although most software works alongside the accelerator an external switch slows the computer for troublesome applications.
“The SupraTurbo 28 grew out of customer demand." Said Supra boss John Willey.
“Amiga customers have bean telling us they want their existing computers to run faster without compromising either their already-installed peripherals or their pock- etbooks."
The A500 version plugs into the external expansion bus and a pass-through slot allows users to connect expansions such as hard drives and memory.
A2000 owners plug their accelerator into the computer's 86-pin expansion slot.
Additional internal peripherals can be also be added.
Supra's British distributor is Leeds-based First Computer Centre (0532 319057).
Price: £129.99. Kuma are helping out with DTP STUDENTS who need to learn desktop publishing skills as part of a short course or National Vocational training scheme are targeted for Kuma Books' (0734 844335) latest publication.
Student's Guide to Desktop Publishing, was written by teacher and freelance journalist Terry Freedman and covers a wide range of topics.
They include basic skills, preparing text and artwork, principles of design, scanners, printing, proof reading markets and typography.
There are also sections on wider requirements such as health and safety, maintenance and data security while questions test students on a continuous basis. Price; £9.95. KNOW SOMETHING WE DON'T?
Showing off CD talents THE latest compact disc from Optonica uses some of the latest techniques including motion video to show off the capabilities of CDTV and Amigas fitted with A570 drives.
Pandora’s CD was produced using Optonica's own Interplay authoring system and Videostream digital motion video production system - both of which will soon be sold commercially. ?
The disc contains 2,000 clip art items, photograph, sound effects and textures and backgrounds libraries plus a range of other demos. Cost; £4.99 from Optonica (0455 558282).

NEWS What's new Slow times at Denny Atkin on the latest realignments in the US Commodore market This month I'd hoped to have a report for you on all the neat Amiga titles shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago, Illinois.
Unfortunately, although PC, Mega Drive, SuperNES, and 3DO titles filled an entire building, there was only a single booth that even had Amigas in it - and the nameplates were all covered up by Video Toaster 4(KX) labels.
A few US games companies did acknowledge that they still have some Amiga titles in the works, but almost all of those were being developed in Europe.
A notable exception were Interplay, who are developing the Amiga port of Star Trek: 25th Anniversary in the US.
Electronic Arts mentioned Desert Strike and an AGA version of Syndicate, and Psygnosis said their recent acquisition by Sony wouldn't affect the 11 Amiga titles currently under development.
Newtek's Video Toaster 4000 booth was actually one of the most crowded at the show, although how much of that is attributable to the Toaster 4000's incredible capabilities compared to how much could be credited to fascination with NewTek demo megababe Kiki Stockhammer could be debated.
The Toaster 4000 has things like realtime 24-bit (OK, Ham8, but who can tell) animated wipes, an incredible new revision of LightWave 3D, and more.
However, since it still only works on NTSC machines, I won't tantalise you any further.
For American Amiga gamers, CES was a truly depressing experience. The American games market for the Amiga seems to have taken its last steps (mostly due to stores not wanting to carry lower- volume Amiga titles when they can devote the space to PC and console games). Almost all our titles come from the UK, and that doesn't look likely to change.
SHOW STOPPER The Amiga's spiritual heir, the 3DO "Interactive Multiplayer" designed by Amiga Inc alumni R j Mical and Dave Needle was a big attention-grabber at the show.
This CD-ROM based console has fast full-colour graphics, and texture-mapped 3DO games were on display at about half of the booths. It's a hot little machine, and is probably what the Amiga would be had it been designed 10 years later.
Technically it's nearly perfect, but it remains to be seen if there's a market for a S700 (£460) game machine.
3DO was adamant that it was an Interactive Multiplayer, not a games console, but 90 per cent of the titles on display were games.
Commodore were at the show, but they didn't have a public display.
Instead, there was a small private room with a darkened window. Of course, this investigative reporter snuck a peek inside, but all I saw was Commodore Engineering's Jeff Porter talking to a businessman with an Amiga 1200 against the wall.
Games machine. The machine has lots of potential, with AGA graphics and MPEG video decompression, but with Commodore's recent $ 177 million loss on sales of only $ 120 million, it's unlikely thev can mount a marketing effort to compete with 3DO, even though their machine is only half the price.
Commodore were probably using the opportunity to try' to find retail outlets to carry its upcoming $ 300 (£197) CD-ROM Pegged picture You have a brand-new Amiga 1200 and you've been using a raytracer to create awesome AGA pictures. But now your 80Mb hard drive is crammed full of pictures.
What do you do? You could use JPEG compression to shrink your pictures, but your rendering program doesn't support JPEG, and neither does Dpaint. Heifner Communications has a solution in PEGGER, an automated JPEG compression program.
If you create AGA or 24-bit graphics on your Amiga and you’re not familiar with JPEG, you should be. This format can shnnk graphics files by a factor of ten or more, storing 800k 24-bit files in only 80k Now you can store 1.000 pictures on a 50Mb drive instead of 60 or 70. JPEG is a “lossy" compression, and does lose a bit of picture resolution, but the results are rarely noticeable PEGGER runs in the background and automatically compresses and decompresses pictures, so you can use it with program like Dpaint IV AGA or VistaPro that don't have built-in JPEG support. If you're Arexx-sawy. You
can use PEGGER's Arexx port to control compression from other applications. PEGGER uses highly-optimised code, so it can handle the compression quickly without bogging down your other processes.
Best of all. PEGGER works on small portions of pictures, so you can process huge pictures with on an unexpanded A1200 - something that's impossible with image processing programs like ADPro and ImageMaster Pegger requires AmigaDOS 2 or 3, and will support Commodore's DSP for even faster processing when the chip is finally shipped. It lists for $ 95 and is available from Heifner Communications, 44511-70 Drive NW. Columbia. MO 65202 USA; phone (314) 445-6163; fax (314) 445-0757 With all the multimedia software creation tools out there - CanDo. AmigaVision. HyperBook. Director 2, and others
- is there really room for another one? When it's one as
sophisticated as Helm, absolutely.

manager, and an incredible assortment of objects you can use
to create user-interfaces for your programs.
Among the objects you can use in your files are pages (which can be turned and browse through like the real paper ones), forms, buttons, charts (bar. Pie. Line - you name it), paintable fields. Arexx “action" objects, and Amiga-style gadgets.
The included tools aren’t just basic, barely useable hacks. The paint-program is full-featured, for instance, with features like Bezier curves and even chaos fills.
Image-processing lifters such as the ones included in ADPro are available for use when creating your presentations - this is one versatile package.
It fully supports IFF 8SVX, ANIM5. ILBM, and even SMUS music files. If works well in PAL as well as NTSC modes, and includes a very complete, well-written manual.
You'll learn lots, though, from looking at the megabytes of included demo applications. Helm ships on Hein i& an authoring systen for tire us*r with litttr interest in the effort or technical know-how that software dewelopnent usually requires. Hein will handle the nore difficult chores and let you concentrate on the creative part of de&tgn. You can rapidly create mterfacos by drawing buttons, textfietds, inagefields, and other objects on the screen. Then you connect the objects to preprogranned actions or user- QP ...or a complete text viewer seven disks, and most of those are packed with
examples.
If you want to create “multimedia" applications (rather than shoot-'em-ups). You’ll find Helm a wonderful tool.

1YSAS Wtl BE RUUEPCO_ A marriage in hell made Can Commodore
unite the PC and Amiga in one box and expect p them to
co-exist in marital bliss?
As this is the August issue of Amiga Computing, you should be reading it some time in the middle of July, by which time the news of Commodore's latest plans for the Amiga should be at least as hot as the weather. So will you like what they have in Store for us?
Leaked exclusively to this magazine, Commodore's stated plans involve what looks to be the AAA chip set allied to a RISC chip with, presumably, 68000 compatibility to provide a machine which is both a super-fast, super- graphics Amiga and a "Pentium" 586 PC into the bargain.
The fact that Windows NT does not depend on existing PC hardware and can be used across a variety' of machines means that it should theoretically be possible to write software entirely for an operating system rather than a computer.
For the industry' as a whole, this could mean increased flexibility, new sales opportunities, and a welcome move towards standardisation.
PC ASCENDANCY On the other hand, it could see the death of the Amiga and other platforms as distinct operating environments, and the ascendancy' of the PC. An Amiga with a PC built-in might quickly be looked upon as a PC with an Amiga built- in.
Can this affect the ordinary' user? Probably not. The A5000, as it is currently being called, is unlikely to be anything other than a very high end machine, and if as thought it is based on RISC architecture, the new Workbench will be radically different to its predecessors in any case.
The most interesting aspect of this development is that it might drag the inexpensive Amiga into a more corporate sphere, taking with it its knack for video, multimedia, and presentations. We have already seen a willingness on the part of the PC world to use the Amiga where its talents are best employed- When IBM launched its multimedia extensions for OS 2 (IBM's own Windows lookalike), they used an Amiga running Scala MM210 to control a video wall and various audio-visual sources. This sort of multimedia extravaganza, now an established fact on the Amiga, is quite new to the PC world,
though they are catching up fast.
There is no reason to believe that Commodore can't recover from their recent losses so long as the much-vaunted recovery really kicks off, so with their established experience in the PC market and, of course, the Amiga, they should be in the ideal position to make the most of the two machines.
Theoretically, the marriage might work, but there are serious practical difficulties.
Companies which work in the massive PC market and develop products, especially software, depend on a wide base of compatible hardware.
Microsoft, for example, know that if Word For Windows 2 runs on the 4Mb 386 in one office, it should work on just about every' one of the millions of other such machines in existence.
However, give Microsoft a weird hybrid based on RISC architecture starting from an initially very low market base and they might decide that their development resources can be better applied elsewhere.
In this situation, the portability' of the operating system, be it Windows NT, Workbench 4.0, or a combination of both, will be crucial.
Manufacturers around the world are developing ways of making the computer below the operating system more transparent to the software, Workbench 4.0's retargetable graphics being a good example, so the portability' should eventually arrive. The downside is that even if this marriage goes ahead, it will not be an equal partnership.
In his comments to this magazine, David Pleasance made it fairly clear that he was aiming (o give the Amiga a free ride on the back of Windows NT into the PC business market, and if this is the way the A5000 works out, it will cease to be an Amiga. Put another way, why should it matter to the corporate user which machine is running his copy of Quattro Pro so long as the interface, operating system, and software itself is identical to all the other machines?
Only if the Amiga's multitasking capabilities can be harnessed by the software will any difference be noticed, but for this a separate version of Windows NT will be needed.
Our problem is that at the moment, all thoughts on the future of the Amiga are purely speculative.
Commodore's plans are still only on record as unguarded comments by various officials and no long term strategy has been revealed.
We know that exciting new technology is only a year or so away, with the 68060, possible RISC developments, and fast 24-bit graphics, but many in the market are unwilling to wait for another year.
If Commodore think that third-party manufacturers and the huge base of expectant end users can be fobbed off with vague promises of what may or may not end up on the production line, they have a rude awakening in Store.
It is a good sign that many top company men seem much more open about plans than used to be the case, but we will need much more concrete assurances.
Any information Commodore release about their marketing plans and where they intend to take the Amiga instantly stimulates debate from individuals, user groups, and developers alike, generating feedback from those who will be expected to buy new products. Surely it makes commercial sense to encourage this feedback and listen to it?

What do you do now? Well, starting up the program's a good idea.
Here's how to go about it.
Start your Amiga and put the disk into your floppy drive. Double click on the CoverDisk icon, then take a look at the window which opens on your Workbench screen.
There should be a single CineMorph jr icon labelled MakeCineMorphjr which, when double-clicked upon, starts a dearchiving process designed to produce an auto-booting disk containing CineMorph jr and a couple of sample images. Anyone in doubt as to what is happening during the de-archiving process should take a quick look at our Getting Started page overleaf.
Once the CineMorph jr disk has been created, restart your Amiga and boot from the new disk. Double-click on the CineMorph jr icon and after a brief spell of disk whirring the main screen will appear.
Two large blank windows dominate most of the screen, and it is into these that we will load our images for a quick warping tutorial. First of all, we must decide what sort of project we want to work on and, as memory is tight, which is the most economic. Move to the Settings menu and select the Mode item.
Three selections should be on offer: Crazy Sue Goes On... Authors: Hironymous Jumpshoe, MC Madbrush, DJ Braincrack This has to be one of the best PD platform games ever, if not the best. It is more playable than the onginal Crazy Sue in which Sue defeated the evil Wizard of Doom.
Now wife, the Mistress of Death, has bewitched the land of Ereanor and its inhabitants. Strange things are going on but that’s not all, as the wicked woman has also done the most terrible deed to our heroine by stealing her teddy bear. Thus, the scenario is set and your task is to help Susi in her fight against the Mistress of Death.
As the game begins, a message appears instructing you to visit aH the doors. There are at least three huge levels, (we couldn't get If Hollywood can do it, so can you! With our fabulous freebie, CineMorph jr, Terminator 2 is only a short morph from home Single Image, Dual Image, and Sequence.
We will choose Single Image, as this is very efficient on system resources, so highlight the item and release the mouse button. Next, go to the Cell menu and select Load Image. A file requester will appear showing the contents of the disk, so click on the samples drawer in which you will find two small compressed jpeg files. Click on the filed called TinyGal.jpg then on OK.
Fantasy becomes reality After decompressing, the face of a young woman superimposed by a grid will appear in both of the windows. This grid is where all the action takes place as it is by moving the points on the grid that warping is achieved, and where we'll now carry out a quick test of the technique.
Start by clicking on one of the points around the woman’s nose in the right hand (destination) window. The point will turn yellow and can be dragged to a new position if you hold down the right mouse button. Let's make her nose a bit larger, so pull out the points on either side of the nose until they are half way towards the next point in the grid.
For a quick look at how this affects the shape of the face, go to the Morph menu and choose Preview Single. A window will appear in the bottom left comer of the past the third one), and we found that it is not necessary to collect all of the objects or visit all the doors in order to complete each of these.
Most of the doors are locked and require a key or magic spell to open them. Assuming that you have access to one of these, pulling down on the joystick will allow entry lo new rooms.
Spells give Susi bonuses like extra time, lives and the ability to jump extra high. Once a scroll has been collected it must be taken to the h»gh altar where the spell may be cast by moving the joystick down.
During long sessions, press P to toggle the pause, but before taking a break, be sure to test that the game has stopped otherwise the screen and a requester will pop up with a generate button and a slider which controls which frame of the animation we will preview.
As we wish to see the final result, you should drag the slider all the way to the right (it should go to frame 25) and click on generate. CineMorph jr will now interpret the new grid positions and warp the the clock will keep ticking which will result in the lose of a life.
There are plenty of nasties including giant spiders, snakes, armour-clad knights and escaped jack-in-the-boxes. Even tame objects such as books are decidedly deadly!
Like all good games, this one is highly addictive and sufficiently large to keep everyone occupied for months.
Source image to fit, a process which will take a while on standard A500 Plus or A600 machines, but which will be quite a bit faster on the A1200.
Once generation is complete we should have a much more puggish-looking young lady on screen. This is a very unflattering warp, however, so we'll try something a little less ugly.
Make sure that the destination window is active by clicking on it, then go to the Point menu and choose Reset Points to restore the original square grid. Now we'll try a bit of multiple selection, a vital tool when manipulating lots of points.
Hold down the left mouse button and the Shift key at the same time, then drag a box around the four points lying in a vertical line over the region of the woman's left ear. The points will all turn yellow to indicate that they have been selected, and if the shift button is still held down you should be abe to move them as one.
To slim down our subject, move the four points slightly towards the middle of the screen, then repeat the operation for the points on the other side of the face.
Now try a quick sneak preview by clicking on the generation button, at which point you should notice how subtle CineMorph jr can be when making slight Memory muncher Please note that CineMorph Junior w H Only run on Amigas with Workbench 2 or higher. It is memory tensive so some facilities will not work unless you have sufficient RAM. We recommend two megabytes and a hard drive, a though it is possible to morph on s‘«ndard 1 meg Amigas as well as AGA machines.

as it can be tailored to suit a variety of skill ¦evels. The

and promotion to the next level.
Traditionally, the object is to destroy all of the bricks before moving on to the next screen. In this version, bouncing the changes to an image.
Now to finish off the effect by stretching the woman's chin a little. Select the two points immediately below the bottom of the chin and pull them slightly down and inwards to sharpen things off.
Don't go overboard with this one, as excessive movement can lead to grotesque deformities.
A quick stab at the generate button should confirm that our subject is beginning to look decidedly different. Now to create the movie!
Hold down the right mouse button again and check out the morph menu. It has five items other than the preview single options we have already used, including two options each for rendering and generating images.
The difference between these two is simply that a generated image will be saved as a 24-bit file, whereas a rendered image will be saved out in the format selected by the user through the Render menu. Leave these settings at the default for now (HAM lo-res) and select the Render Animation option.
A file requester will appear to enable you to choose where the animation is stored and what it will be called. Feel free to save direct to the CineMorph jr disk, as | mini ¦¦inn i i mini c l ac mini i i I t i ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦ I ii mnn i i n Nearly free.
Ball off the back wall eventually causes it to crumble. The ball is then free to travel into the next stage. If you fail to move the bat to the ball quickly enough, rather than losing a life, the ball returns to the previous Stage. However, the screen will become mono and the gameplay the resulting 25 frame animation should be less than 50k in size and should load into Dpaint IV for later viewing. If you have an old version of Dl’aint which doesn't support HAM images, try the EHB (Extra Half-Brite, or 64-colour) option from the Render menu before generating the animation.
COVERDISKI Before rendering, notice that CineMorph jr asks you which should be the first and last images in the sequence.
This is to avoid the time consuming mistake of generating any unecessary frames in a long sequence when a short section is required for preview.
Of course, you needn't stop with this simple warp. Those with access to a hand scanner or video digitiser can upset all their friends and relations with a few choice morphs and warps, or can opt to carry out more complex jobs if memory permits.
Experiment with larger images, by all means, especially if you have 2Mb or more of RAM. A1200 owners should be particularly well suited to the morphing task, having both the extra memory and the additional firepower of a 68020 processor.
To test the package's other talents, try morphing from the TinyGal image to the speeded up making it extremely difficult to catch the ball. Ultimately, if the first level is re-encountered and the player fails to hit the ball a life is lost.
The game can be played by one or two players who may be either human or the Amiga itself. It is even possible to select two computer players who battle it out while allowing you the chance to pick up some tips. There are five skill levels adjustable for each player so there is no reason for games against family and friends to become one-sided.
In order to take a break during a long game, press the spacebar When suitably refreshed, press it agam and the game will continue.
TinyGuy image. This will not work on machines with only 1Mb RAM, but for 2Mb owners it is simply a matter of choosing Dual Image from the Settings ... Mode menu item, then loading an image into each cell.
You can simply generate the animation as it stands or experiment with tweaking it through moving points on the grid, a particularly useful technique to force the woman's hair to morph down to the man's much tighter outline.
If at any time it is felt that there are too few points to the grid and that more precise control is needed, say to make a face twitch its eyebrow, there are a couple of tricks we can pull to improve close control. Holding down the right mouse button, take a long look at the Point requester, where most of the editing action takes place.
There are two important options in the middle of this menu, Add Row and Add Column. By highlighting a poit and choosing either of these options, it is possible to insert a new row or column of points to effectively double the number of editing points available in the area where detail is required.
Try a quick test on your own by adding these extra points around the area of an eyebrow - this has been a common trick in TV dog food adverts recently. With a little practice the user can make a small section of a face move, a technique which is often far more effective than huge changes.
When such close work is required, choosing Zoom In from the Window menu and scrolling around with the cursor keys helps immensely. Hairlines are good places to play "tricks" with, because the motion and changes of hairstyles can be dramatic, yet it doesn't take as much effort to make them morph in an interesting fashion.
Once the points are set in the mesh, you There's more too... While you can morph and warp to your heart's content, we've kept a few things out for those who've purchased CineMorph from their local dealer. The menu known as Sequence isn’t available in this version of CineMorph and it's absolutely crucial to morphing moving images. Purchasers also get quite a nice manual with the purchased version and they can get upgrades of CineMorph from GVP as well. Owners of ImageFX, GVP's image processor 24-bit paint software, will also will find that j*eir copy of CineMorph has all these features and a
few extra special additions of it's own.
What is a morph?
Morphing, also known as polymorphing and metamorphing, is a technique pioneered by Tom Brigham of the New York Institute of Technology and demonstrated at the 1982 SICCRAPH film show. It took until 1987 for Doug Smyth, a programmer animator working for Industrial Light and Magic, to reinvent and improve on the original work for use in Ron Howard's film Willow.
This software evolved and improved through the years and was used in other films such as Indiana Join’s and the Last Crusade and Terminator 2. This exad same Hollywood special effects technique is used in CineMorph jr, the standalone morphing software from GVP and Nova Design, which you now have in your hands. You can turn raw software power, and your imagination and skill, into eye-popping morphs and warps to amaze your friends with!

Can choose the way in which morphing takes place. The dissolve curve, which is the process of blending the colour information from one image into the other, is controlled for each individual frame. The tweening curve controls how fast the motion of the points in the mesh is over all of the frames. With these curves you can have steady, even, transitions with a linear curve, or a more surprising morph using sinusoidal, that starts slow then morphs very fast.
Find the Edit Tweening option on the Cell menu and draw a curve with the left mouse buutton which starts steeply at first then flattens off towards the end. If the animation is rendered again, it should be obvious that changes take place rapidly in Single Image warpi are my memory conscious Minisola is a strategy game played against a competent computer opponent.
It is played on a grid and at each turn players move their counter to an adjacent position, then destroy a square. To win, your opponent must be forced into a situation where a move cannot be made.
By default, the game is battled out on an eight by six board but these dimensions may be altered, using the prefs option, to any configuration from four by five up to ten by ten.
Winning any strategy game is made easier by knowing whether the first player to move has an advantage, equal the first few frames then more slowly as the animation progresses. With a little tampering, the tweening curve can be a very useful tool.

Odds or a disadvantage. The game is made fair by alternating the first player to move but this can be changed using the program's built in preferences. Of course, you do need to figure out whether to go first or second in order to cheat, as we re not going spoil things by telling you.

COVERDISK!
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!
New readers may have difficulties using our CoverDisk, so we have included this page to help you out.
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 fHes from one disk to another, how to copy the entire CoverDisk and how to de archive programs, none

Rights Rtierwd.
You might at some point want to copy a single program from a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or even your hard drive.
To do this you'll need the COPY command. As most CoverDisk programs are stashed away in their own directories, the quickest way to copy a program is to copy the whole directory at once. Use the command: COPY (directory) TO (oeudisk) HI where (directory) is the full pathname of the directory you wish to copy, and (newdisk) is the name of the disk and directory into which it will be copied.
For example, if you wanted to copy a utility called FRED from CoverDisk 27's Utilities drawer to a directory called FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: COPT CQYEMW2M)T]UTIES FIIEP TO V0RK6ENCM1.3 FRCO All Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory icon 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 running 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 Powerpacker library into your LIBS drawer.
To copy the entire CoverDisk, load up your Workbench fok, then either click once on the CoverDisk icon and select Duplicate, or select Copy from the Workbench menu, or open CLI Shell and type: OISKCOPY FtOR ISO: TO MO: When prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source disk) in dfO: and be ready to replace it with your blank disk (the destination disk). Follow the Amiga's on-screen prompts until the disk copy is completed. Now put the original away 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 dick on FRED'S icon, and will be asked if you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to. Type "f 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 I 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.

Unfortunately the good intentions of t-. - ould-be movie mogul are all to often iotroyed by the end results featuring bran of unadulterated twoddle such as N th walking and static), the lens cap r extreme close-up) and let's not forget ftBlr Johnnie doing nothing whatsoever low solid hours - every' moment cap- for posterity, of course
• n one than the expense in wasted tape ft the torture that
friends, relations and
* .-ortunes clients are put through as the «ndk» dribble goes on,
and on and on... The answer is, of course, editing, that tri*
thing that's all too often forgotten «ten compiling the next
sadistic montage fee a forthcoming family get-together.
In short, without good editing your tamily suffers, your friends suffer and per- most important of all - for those ¦rrolving in commercial videography - The your business will certainly suffer.
H answe As any professional will tell you, good editing can make fairly poor material look great whilst the reverse will always make the best footage look absolutely diabolical.
CONFIGURATION You only need to watch the average 30 second commercial to see the impact that good editing can have on a production, and like it or not, for that degree of professionalism a dedicated editing system is essential.
BLACK BOX As you can see from the photography.
Videopilot is a fairly impressive piece of equipment that's come a long way from its first incarnation as a plain black box.
Those who remember its predecessor may recall that in the old days everything was controlled via the Amiga.
Now however that's all changed and not just to improve the aesthetics. After quizzing the user base, the creators of Videopilot discovered that control via the keyboard wasn't always the best way to exploit the system.
By design most video suites are fairly gloomy and as a result fumbling around for function keys wasn't ideal. As a result the new redesigned mimics the approach employed by pro edit systems offering the ease of use and friendly ergonomic design offered by its infinitely more expensive broadcast counterparts.
During the transformation, the bland black box underwent a complete overhaul, which as you can see now boasts large, well defined keys for all major functions plus a new jog shuttle feature for frame bv frame advancement.
In addition an assortment of ten mode selectors run along the top of the unit which again work to consolidate and simplify control of the system. Aside from the somewhat awkward keyboard control of its predecessor, constant shuffling from the keyboard to Videopilot was also highlighted as a problem.
As a result the aforementioned buttons provide a means of controlling almost every aspect of the editing process without any need for intervention via the keyboard.
From the buttons you can automatically switch between any one of the three player units or the target recorder. In addition you can initialise assembly, preview edits before committing them, insert edit, audio dub, reset the counter and even link to external mixing desks equipped with an ICC Bus.
TERRIFYING Moving to the rear of the unit, ease of use seems to have been forgotten thanks to a terrifying array of connections spanning the entire length of the unit.
However looks can be deceptive and in fact the various elements are split into individual sections for each player the target recorder and monitor.
As for the players, each of the three allow connection of a Scart for composite in out, twin Y C in and outs, a composite monitor out, an LTC - or Linear Time Code-in plus the essential remote control out.
On the record side, the setup is pretty similar with identical composite and Y C I O options plus remote control port.
Aside from the player and recorders, the only other ports pertain to the monitor which again boast both composite via a Scart, Y C plus the essential LTC out - used to strip timecode onto tape where necessary.
Due to the complexity of connection, cabling*up any videographic exploit can be tricky especially when up to Four VCRs and a monitor all converging on one point.
However the whole concept of the rear ?
Panel revolves around the fact that once connection is complete there's no need to touch anything again - with the obvious exception being camcorders.
Setting-up Assuming the appropriate audio video connections are complete, the next task is to transfer transport control from the VCRs to the Videopilot. To achieve this, some form of remote control is essential which in the case of Videopilot means either infra red or direct connection to the remote edit options found on the better VHS, Hi8 and S-VHS VRCs and camcorders.
Aside from pulling in the appropriate cable or alternatively placing the infra red sensor, the only other task is to select the necessary VCR and control combination from within the software.
Like the rest of the package, the selec* tion is a simple icon clicking procedure until the appropriate combination pops up CONFiGURRTfONSUHMRRV PflNfl CABLE fl I- - slVHSl K. JRREESQI r LTC PRNR CABLE C elVHSM B UlTC firracj IC - PRNR CABLE fl glVHSl • ______u I CURRENT CONFIGURATION SUMMBRY ¦ ...... D CLICK ON OK TO CONTINUE Instant overview of the complete configuration - and of course everything con hr sored to disk for the player in question.
Unlike its predecessor, the new version doesn't provide the full infra red memorisation offered in the past but instead comes with a huge selection of presets covering all the major manufacturers.
Internal titling In an obvious attempt to bake the perfect cake, the software designers have thrown in a final blob of icing in the form of a built-in titler. Although basic it does offer a very smooth scroll and crawl in addition to a basic page by page flip.
As is the case with most titlers, It's only really at its best in combination with a genlock - which as a matter of interest sits in-line between the recorder out and the player.
As mentioned, things are pretty straightforward but you are given the option to mix up to four different fonts on a single page, with each being any one of the four available colours both with or without drop shadow.
As is the norm, the colours can be adjusted via a palette requester, while the text itself can be justified either left, right or in the centre of the screen. As you'd expect, scroll speeds can be adjusted as required providing a useful if not spectacular addition to the overall package.
Admittedly this may cause occasional compatibility problems with the more obscure makes but this should be extremely rare and can be isolated prior to purchase by your distributor.
Assuming hardware selection, connection and remote control have been set up and of course checked via the program's built-in test facility, the final task is to select the appropriate timecode option for each player recorder.
Apart from the obvious attraction of the new unit and the ease of use inherent throughout both the software and hardware, it's the unit’s timecode options which make it special.
Unlike most editing systems, Videopilot doesn't stick to a single proprietary timecoding system. In fact all the major semi-pro and home formats are 0‘ ’ m (W ?
Supported with the only exception being the broadcast standard of SMPTE.
According to Videopilot's manufacturers, SMPTE may be supported in the future but for now we'll put it aside and concentrate on the four formats directly supported. These include V1TC, RCTC, LTC and counter - which isn’t strictly a timecode and as a result isn't particularly accurate.
However in the case of the VITC, RCTC and LTC the situation is a good deal better with frame accuracy at or between 1 to 3 fps on better quality VCRs that have been set up via the software's inertia control system.
Once applied the software automatically takes into account the idiosyncrasies of each VRCs mechanism - and thereby improves performance.
In the simplest - and preferred - configuration, the original tape or "rushes'’ will already be coded during recording either by VITC or RCTC, in which case Videopilot will automatically read the existing timecode signal and still provide full stereo along with the video.
If however the original tape wasn't recorded with timecode but is nevertheless stereo, LTC comes into its own allow- Excellent Although briefly touched on in the main article, the almost forgotten software accompanying the Videopilot is nothing short of excellent, especially for those who aren't particularly au fait with the Amiga - or indeed video.
As you can see from the screenshots, initial set-up is very straightforward with the prompt window at the bottom of the display automatically diagnosing the possible cure for any hitches you may encounter.
In addition, a test screen allows a complete rundown of the control options in order to isolate missing connections or incorrect timecode protocols lor each VRG camcorder on the system.
Once everything checks out, the entire configuration can be saved to disk and recalled when necessary allowing instant access to any set-up combination you might require.
To begin the editing process you simply select the player ol your choice and press play - all via the console of course At this point the software will update its display with the appropriate player while the large counter displays the current frame count. When the chosen in-point appears software simply lapping on the insert key on the console will auto- maticalty add the first edit point which of course has to be followed by an out. Once the two points are added the software defaults to the description field to allow any comments to be added. If however you're editing on the tty the
description option can be skipped by simply hitting return on the Amiga keyboard - at which point the software moves to the next edit line ready for a Subsequent punch- irVpunch-out.
And of course you can swap the input player at any time via the console - at which point the software will automatically update.
To continue simply press Play and hit the insert button where appropriate - a new edit will the join those from the first tape or alternate player.
This process can go on almost infinitely with numerous tapes from up to three players all involved in the production
- regardless of format. Better still, when the rough editing is
complete you can go back through the list fine tuning the edit
points by typing the exact frame number into the list.
In fact if editing on the roll isn't to your taste you can use play, fasl forward and pause to locate a specific shot - moving to the exact frame with the console's jog shuttle if necessary.
Then while still paused the frame can be added to the list just like any other. When edit marking is complete, there's still more fun to be had via the program's cut and paste options Once an edit list is complete you're provided with full cut to be audio dubbed onto the Vtoano track while retaining the orig- i «rem and of course the video.
Before going any further it's time a bfief explanation of the internal
* ~--r of stereo videotape. Fortunately tre ndeographer, both the
video and
* • m jd» are embedded together in the m» of the tape while the
mono runs ndependently along the edge. As a avdt ideal for
timecoding.
Hewn’cr, life is never simple and LTC SBMc.xlmg is no exception. Although it's «¦»*» to add timecode directly onto the mmo jadjo track courtesy of the audio : x reature and via Videopilot's LTC gen- ersbse it’s impossible to read the signal thereby edit the tape when using an insvdified player.
Tkr reason is that Videopilot must read independently of the stereo sig- i directly into the player's LTC-in at 6* rear of editor. Due to the annoying fact Tat home VCRs and camcorders never lifer a mono audio out from a stereo piaxrr. It's impossible to read the LTC relflnft modification.
GENERATIONS A* a consequence, the only option ¦hen using none limecoded stereo faetage on an un-modified machine is to kar j generation by copying the tape and r rum sacrifice one of the stereo channels r the process.
The same applies to footage shot with a aono camcorder. In this case the tape resal be copied with the original audio on «re channel and the timecode on the other mati- asies reby con- sh«" ding case 1 the jvide asn't rthe- llow- If. However, you’re willing to invest an fitra £100 and maybe invalidate your ¦arranty - assuming you have one - your VCR will be taken away, modified and returned within a week complete with a MW mono phono output either protrud* sag from the casing or drill fitted at the rear according to your requirements.
Obviously resale can sometimes be a problem after modification - hence the The obvious question has to be: “Is it worth it?’ In my opinion the answer is “Yes!” option to avoid drilling.
Although the prospect of invalidating your warranty isn't exactly attractive, it's often outweighed by the power that LTC can provide in the form of accuracy and digital numbering of your timecoded tapes.
As a result, the software can even prompt you to insert the correct source tape when required - something which can only be achieved with RCTC and VITC by manually numbering the tapes and adding comments and control pauses during assembly.
In short, for those who don’t take their DTV that seriously LTC is perhaps some* thing that can wait until your warranty expires as mono audio is still available without the modification for those willing to sacrifice a generation.
However if you take your videogra- phy seriously and perhaps more impor* tantly make money in the process LTC is a very tempting option no matter what the implications.
DOWN TO YOU Even with the problems, Videopilot's distributors claim that LTC modification can barely keep pace with demand, with over 90 per cent of the existing user base clamouring for the conversion regardless of the potential problems.
As for a conclusion, I'm afraid it's very much down to you. Firstly there's the £1,300 investment in the editor itself, which may demand an extra £100 at least on modified VCRs - potentially invalidating the odd warranty in the process.
The obvious question has to be: "Is it worth it?" In my opinion the answer is "Yes!" After just a few minutes I guarantee even the most cynical videophile will lose any inhibitions about the cash or possible legal implications.
However, if your videographic exploits rarely go further than the living rooms of friends and family I'd advise anyone you to think long and hard before investing in a system that can, and indeed should, earn its keep.

BARE ...... .....£129 80MB ..... .....£279 160MB ... .....£349 200MB ... .....£419 POWER OPTICAL DRIVE Launched initially as a 12 24-bit display card, Archos's Avideo24 was one of the best budget solutions to high quality video graphics until the release of the A1200, at which point the bottom end of the 24-bit market was more or less wiped out.
To attract new sales, the unit had to evolve, in response to which the French designers added a couple of video connectors, a genlock, and a digitiser.
The result is Avideo Y C, a product aimed much more at video work than standard Amiga display enhancement cards and, with its built-in genlock and digitiser, more a cut-price contender for the IV24 market than anything else.
Whether or not the competition is a dose one remains to be seen.
Avideo Y C is an external device which connects to the Amiga's ZT-pin RGB video port and provides a through connector for a standard monitor or TV modulator.
Unlike its predecessors, which relied upon the user prying the Denise chip from ib socket, it should work with any Amiga, though upon connection the machine will need four inches of extra desk space at the rear.
The cream coloured plastic box is fairly sturdy and sports a phono composite video and 5-pin mini-DIN socket for S- VHS (Y C) connection alongside the 23- pin Amiga video through port. Other openings include five potentiometers for various hardware settings, more on which later.
Software bundled with the package includes a variety of Avideo utilities and the program AVPaint, a 24-bit paint program supplied in both normal and floating point flavours, Installation is easy and quick - though it assumes the use of a hard drive - and the user should be eagerly clicking on icons within five minutes of opening the box.
Of the various programs found on the Avideo disks, AVTools comes closest to forming a general control panel. From here, the user can choose to view picture or animation files, control the genlock, grab a frame from video, swap between lace and non-lace display, alter the video source RGB or YUV components, or construct an animation using AVRemap.
There are no gain controls and the RGB sliders don't really provide as much control over the source video as 1 would have liked, but given the adjustable potentiometers on the hardware itself, users should be able to find a balance of his or her choice.
These tiny pots can be accessed with a miniature screwdriver (not supplied), and offer the user direct control over luminance (light) and saturation (colour) levels.
Another three pots on the top of the box adjust the levels of output video luminance, contrast and saturation, so there’s a fair degree of flexibility in the system.
Better design would have resulted software control rather than faffing abc with a screwdriver, but at least the conti is there in some shape or form.
Of the software utilities availat through AVTools, AVRemap was the o which first drew my attention, promisi as it does to produce high quality anin tions in full video overscan.
This is the sort of claim one usua approaches with a healthy cynicism a which is usually blown away within m Amiga Computing August 1993 36 seasons but Avideo Y C makes more of an at it than most.
T«ng AVRemap, the user need only taatf tie file from a sequence of, say, 30 or faytraced images, select AVRemap, mad dnose the output anim file.
TW program then loads each image Mi adds t in turn to the anim file. As all l%l*map anim* using the custom animation format are 12-bit YUV they contain less data and therein animate faster. For example, 30 files from an Imagine 24-bit render, each of which was over 700k in size, converted down to an anim file of about 1.2Mb which ran smoothly and at about 18 frames per second.
The amount of movement on this par* ticular anim was, admittedly, far less than a full screen camera movement, but the sight of a true 12*bit image animating in anything like video speed is rare enough to be notable.
Animations utilising more screen movement do not run with a speed or smoothness suitable for video work, but with a certain amount of experimentation, a reasonable medium is attainable.
For work in presentations, the lower speeds achieved by some anims are still acceptable, so in this respect Avideo forms a viable alternative to the disappointing frame rates of most Ham8 efforts.
One difficulty with animations at the moment is that a certain amount of screen clutter is caused by a hardware fault in the early Avideo Y C units. This manifests itself in the form of ghostly lines in certain areas of the screen, but the board's distributors have assured us that this fault will be corrected.
LINKING IMAGE A second useful tool is AVBinder, designed to force other programs to use the Avideo display. This is achieved by loading the image which, say, Scala would normally display as a backdrop, then "binding" this to a second image which Avideo will display instead.
The user can thus create a 16-colour equivalent of a 12- or 24-bit screen, and when Scala tries to load the 16-colour IFF, Avideo jumps in with its own picture.
What impresses most is when the binding requester pops up to offer a selection of eight transitions including dissolve, bloom, fade, and various scrolls.
When the mask image is loaded into the user's presentation package, AVBinder will not only show its own image instead, but will also use whichever effect chosen at the binding stage. Speed is controllable from 0 to 10, so using a PD slideshow program and a series of bound images, the user can construct a very respectable presentations.
Ted in about ontrol ilabie u? One ni'im; mini.)- suallv n and min* AVBinder could work faster and with fewer quirks, but it adds a little something to the package's flexibility. Some presentations will not require the effect, and I wouldn't trust it for important occasions, but for rolling demos and information screens AVBinder can bring extra colour and some custom flair.
As Avideo works through an Arexx- compatible server, each and every tool can be controlled from within an Arexx script, enabling the conversant user to build a wide variety of custom effects.
Use of the available facilities.
This is a pity, as there arc a number of transition effects, available to AVShow as well as AVBinder, which can go together to make impressive slideshows and the like. The effects are available directly from Unfortunately, the Opera automatic Arexx script generation software supplied with Avideo24 is absent from the package, so only those with the requisite Arexx skills will be able to make much Basic paint package AVPaint, the bundled 12 24-bit paint package, is a fairly basic program capable of good presentation graphics but largely unsuited for complex painting tasks.
The program opens after an initial selection screen from which the user can choose interlace or non-mteriace. As video works in interlace or not at all, the choice seems a strange one until it is noted that for interlace mode a whacking 2Mb of chip RAM is required, relegating users of non-ECS Amigas to non-interlace.
At first, this seems a damaging limitation, but as the AVLace tool (available, as usual, through AVTools) will add the extra field without messing around with pixel aspect ratios, the less well-equipped user can negotiate the obstacle with a little extra effort.
Internal bitmap sizes are kept at 736 by 566 to correspond with maximum overscan, so any images saved will automatically be of the correct type for video work.
Painting and drawing tools are the familiar Dpaint-styte collection, including freehand, filled polygons, circles, and so on, with little or nothing of note about them, but there are a couple of extras which stand out as nice touches.
The text requester is a good example. It enables the selection of any font, including CompuGraphic Intelifonts if available, and will type Ihe text directly on the screen However, once visible, the text can be positioned with ease anywhere on screen Using the cursor keys, or Shift with cursor keys for faster movement, it is possible to find the best site for a logo or title, then stamp it down. If the anti-alias tool has been selected, any stamped text will assume a smoothed appearance, though this is less useful for graphics which are to be overlaid on live video.
It is also possible to control genlocking and grabbing from within the program, making if easy to preview any graphics, be they titles or animations, which will eventually find their way into a production.
Any videographer will tell you that the facility to check that titles will not disappear into the background when laid over a similarly coloured piece of video is invaluable and a great time saver.
As AVPaint directly addresses the Avideo hardware, any images grabbed using the grabbing facility are the same quality as those taken through AVTools. But with the added advantage that they are more or less instantly available for retouching and the addition of graphics using the painting tools Gradient fills are available for producing backdrops and so on, but they are trickier to set up than they might be. Rather than produce a requester specifically for the use of gradients, AVPaint offers a single colour indicator with a second button to select the direction of the colour change. The
method is usable, but fussy Other good features include the use of stencil masks which can work over a spread of colours, and universal colour blending. Using a slider on the main AVPaint control panel, any amount of colour blend from zero to 100 per cent can be set and applied to any effect, from simple drawing to brush operations.
CLI using a utility called AVCmd, but some sort of script building utility for the ordinary user would have been a welcome addition. Typing command lines with multiple parameters and tricky syntax just to scroll an image down the page is hardly what the 1990s user expects.
Last of AVTools's handy buttons is the AVGrab control, through which the user can exercise live control of the on-board Black box blues Unlike IV24, which now boasts a complete video splitter and switcher in the shape of the VIU black box, Avideo must make its way in the harsh world of video with only its composite and Y C video inputs for company.
One each of these grace the rear of the unit and through them Avideo receives al its video signals from the Outside world In effect, however, the Arexx port from which Avideo is controlled can be used to reproduce some of the functions of a switcher unit, All Arexx commands which address the video ports, such as AVDigit (for grabbing) and AVGenlock can take a parameter to select either of the sources.
Set Picture Loading Parameters Q Plain Vleu | Q Replace | | Left IlililHjiill | Tor IwwswwsI | Width Iwmmi 1 Height 9&sm This enables AVToois to control which video port is used lor genlocking and grabbing, so two video sources can be connected at once without the user having to faff about with cables or software settings. Switching between the two is a matter of issuing an Arexx command, so external programs - so long as they speak Arexx - can be used Of course. Avideo used in this fashion is nowhere near as flexible as the IV24- VIU combination, and It has the disadvantage ol not
allowing for an external keyer or reference source other than the Amiga's own sync pulse, but users with simple video requirements will not need the GVP card’s added power.
_| Blinds | Bloon x 1 Dissolve _I Fade _| Scro11 Horz _| Scro11 Vert Scroll Diag Speed Okay | AVBInder Is capable ol some very useful rffrcts digitiser. A small control panel with toggle gadgets to select live video, freeze, lace unlace, contrast, and cleanup, offer plenty of user input on the grabbing front.
Crabs are taken very quickly, in 1 25th of a second, frozen images being stored in the unit's 1.5Mb framebuffer for instant snapping. Quality seems not quite as good as Vlab or 1V24, and there is slightly more interlace judder than on either of the other two units, but the finished images are true 24-bit and of a high quality.
At time of going to press, the first prerelease hatch of Avideo units suffered from red saturation problems in the grabber circuitry, but this is due for a hardware tweak before the public set eyes on the card.
The screen grabs accompanying this article will look rather red in places and not up to scratch, but this situation should improve provided the proper alterations are carried out by the developers.
For the moment, users will have to fiddle with the AVTool’s RGB sliders and the hardware settings, or perhaps reprocess a grab using ADPro to eliminate the red imbalance. Check before buying or keep an eye on our Updates column for the latest revisions. Avideo's genlock suffers from no such problem. It is software switchable between the composite and Y C inputs and provides a steady lock for overlaying Amiga animations or titles.
N ipe JHZI In use, it can offer 12-bit animation from the AVShow utility' over the top of live video with clean edges which speak well of the unit's keying abilities.
LOT ON OFFER Comparing this with the IV24, it is difficult to see which is the better unit, and after several tests including graphic overlay and titling, neither seemed to have a distinct edge, though the GVP unit's controlling software is undoubtedly better.
This, assuming the minor hardware problems are rectified, is my only real complaint with Avideo. As a package, it has a lot to offer, and as it is fully Arexx conversant, can offer varying possibilities to videographers and presentation professionals alike. However, the accompanying software hides much of its potential away behind an interface which could be friendlier and is in need of cosmetic surgery.
Avideo deserves to succeed as a low Bits and pieces Many users who struggle with basic video concepts (most of us. If we're honest) will probably find the Avideo 12-bit standard somewhat confusing. It is a half-way house identical to that offered by IV24. To enable the use of animations which move at a reasonable speed, but for most other uses can be surprisingly useful.
When dealing with TV graphics in particular, 16.7 million colours (as Offered by 24-bit) is a bit over the top on most occasions, and when titling or adding the odd animation it is decidedly an embarrassment of riches. In such cases, the 4,0% colours offered by true 12-bit mode can be a more efficient answer to the problem.
As 12-bit images contain a much smaller amount of data, they are easier to store, animate faster, and are generally easier to work with than their higher quality but much bulkier 24-bit brethren.
In addition, there will often be little perceivable difference between 12-bit and 24-bit images once they have been recorded to videotape.
A Video's use of a decent 12-bit custom animation format and its paint package's icon-drive 12 24-bit switch leaves it the winner as far as implementation of the format is concerned.
Cost multi-purpose video and multimedu tool, but whether it does will depend oil where it is taken from this fair but still a lit tie shaky start.
If developed in the user-friendlines department and cured of its irritating mind ailmenLs, Avideo Y C could knock a btf hole for itself in the video peripherals mar ket. If it doesn't, the only hole it will opei will be one in which to lie down and die.

CaOC AV* 1il»d pnem trrj «(wcAcalon irwy crttng* 84J ultimedia is to the Amiga what petrol is to cars - without it the high end of the market would grind to a halt. It was therefore a surprise that when GVP decided to move into the video and multimedia markets, the company's first attempt was less than completely successful.
Priced at £1,800 and hampered by some truly appalling software, the first IV24 package was given short shrift by reviewers across the industry, a reception from which v2.0 is presently trying to recover.
Reboxed, repackaged and rebundled, IV24 has shed £800 from its overweight price tag and gained a few lean mean muscles in the form of additional hardware and software as it faces up to the challenge posed by a long list of excellent video cards including the Toaster, Harlequin, and OpalVision.
The result is a much stronger contender for the lucrative fleshpots that are the semi-professional and professional video markets.
To banish from the outset IV24's unfortunate heritage, GVP have made efforts to improve the deficiencies highlighted as those of most concern, leading to improvements in three key areas; software, speed, and video-friendlinoss.
Taken in combination, the improvements give this particular Lazarus not only new life, but a cut and blow dry into the bargain. In essence, IV24 is a combination of 24-bit display card, framebuffer, genlock, digitiser, and flicker fixer in one - a multi-talented act which on the face of things should make it a steal at its new £999 asking price.
Throw in a video splitter and a copy of Caligari 24, one of the Amiga’s most effective and easy to use modelling animation packages, and the 1V24 begins to become on a very appealing prospect However, such all-on-a-card solutions to video and multimedia often suffer from compromises and there are now so many superb cards on the market that not even this seemingly value-packed peripheral can be guaranteed an instant hit. A thorough look under the bonnet seems in order. Impact Vision 24, to give the board GVP’s IV24 has been brought back from the dead, but is it a shining resurrection or a
walking corpse?
Stevie Kennedy examines be most useful.
Its full title, is a card for the Amiga 1500 and upwards which makes use of the video slot found in those models.
On the A3000 and A4000, the unit fits snugly into the newer full length slots, but when using the more diminutive video connectors on the A1500 2000, IV24 takes up a Zorro slot and utilises a small card with a ribbon cable to talk to the video slot.
Users of already cramped A1500s are therefore advised that IV24 needs a bit more real estate than certain other leading brands.
Once fitted, the beauty of this card is that at the hardware level it is virtually transparent to the user, and when in bypass mode (selected via a small three-way switch on the rear of the card) the Amiga ignores it altogether and will connect as normal to any ordinary 1084-like 15kHz monitor.
For those with 31kHz or multiscan monitors. Master mode enables the connection of the monitor and the use of the card as a flicker fixer, but for most users, the middle ground software-selectable mode will When used in this way, the card and its video interface unit can be controlled bv GVPs preference programs and switched between Master and Genlock mode a‘ required. When in Genlock mode, essentia for any of the board's video uses, the usei will find that non-PAL screens will no1 open and that the only screen modes avail able through prefs will be standard PAL If mode promotion is not
turned of through Icontrol, the result will be tha many programs which attempt to opei interlace screens will not work, becaua mode promotion is trying to open them ii Doing th The biggest hardware enhancement offered by the all new IV24 package over the first units to hit the street is the Video Interface Unit (VIU), which is really ai RGB splitter and video switcher in a smooth blac box.
On the outside, the unit sports an impressive arra of video inputs, including two composite ports, Y (S VHS). Component RGB. External reference (for tirrv base correctors and such like) and externa keyer.
Outputs are slightly more restricted at one compoi ite. One Y C, and a key out to pass time code to dowr stream devices. A sync pulse is generated on-board no external sync is used. All I O is controlled via th A startled Mel Clbson after hh trip to Desktop Darkroom im* without incident.

After a short and smooth learning curve, therefore, and prompted on by the manual’s excellent troubleshooting Q&A section, most users should find the system provides a rock steady video signal with plenty of options for either post-production or multimedia work.
With inputs for two composite, one RGB, and one Y C source allied to outputs for composite or Y C taping, the IY24-VIU combination provides a very flexible semi-professional base of operations.
The card itself is a
1. 5Mb 24-bit framebuffer with built-in real time digitiser and a
genlock capable of good steady locking. As mentioned, the

Lazarus includes a good quality composite encoder which also supplies Y C signals, digital RGB keyer, and analogue composite keyer, so there's a lot crammed in there.
In use, most of this trickery goes unseen by the user except when IVCP settings need to be changed. The digitiser is probably the most impressive feature on offer, and works as well as, if not better than, the usual Vlab yardstick.
Crabs are taken in 1 25th second and there is little of the interlace judder sometimes encountered with other grabbers. In addition, image clarity is crisp and colours appear as they should without imbalances or bleeding.
Desktop Darkroom, used to capture and process images, is rather clunky and not In the usual GVP house style for software such as that supplied with G-Lock, but there are a fair number of filters and operations on offer for users to retouch or completely muck about with a grab- Once a suitable filter has been found and applied, be it a simple averaging filter • Productivity and the 1V24 is telling Productivity to take a hike.

* pmges upon the ordinary' workings of its M machine is
negligible when compared, tor rumple, to the much cheaper
Retina oal whose Workbench emulation must be mm dvough software
at boot-up.
Software installation, using the by now flndard Commodore installer, is painless, the fi ve supplied disks (Install, fktvres, Macropaint 2.0, and two for C j .iiri 24) shuffle their way onto hard Painful painting MacroPaint 2.0, unlike its predecessor, can actually be used for painting without the user risking severe sanity loss. As an upgrade, it is an admirable improvement with completely redesigned toolbox, greatly increased speed, and a distinct lack of bugs. Unfortunately, it still fails to shine when set against its mam opposition, OpalPaint.
The basic painting features are all catered for. Including lasso brush cuts, polygon fills and gradient fills, but little else jumps out of the screen as far as advanced options go- Basic is as basic does, and everything MacroPaint does is just that - basic.
It’s not all bad news for IV24 users with a desire to wax creative, though, as a 24- bit paint package will always enable the production of impressive looking screens, even if the fancy perspective and brush effects of other programs are missing.
Text control is one particularly good area. The user can choose from any Amiga font and type in his or her text, then before stamping it down can move it around the screen using the cursor keys.
This makes proper positioning very simple and is especially useful for titling a screen grabbed from video when, for example, plonking a red title over a very red part of the image would not be a good idea.
Few other touches spring to mind, but there is at least a fairly good selection of effects for the application of paint or text and brushes.
AIRBRUSH Users can choose on a slide gadget to apply all new paint in tints from 0 to 100 per cent, or by double clicking the airbrush Icon to summon the paint method requester.
A choice of tint, shade, smear and mono is on offer, along with Boolean operations for basic special effects. In addition, the FX icon contains luminance and contrast controls.
In general technical specification, MacroPaint runs out quite well, with spare page rub-throggh, Arexx support, and the ability to apply effects and processes to a region of the screen rather than the full image.
Most importantly, perhaps, painting takes place in real time, and the colour which is chosen from the palette is the one which will be seen as the user paints.
With its improved interface and increased speed. MacroPaint is now a usable package which complements rather than damages the IV24 as a whole. Just don't expect it to win many medals.
Without brush gradients and feathering. And a wodge of the now almost standard special effects offered by other paint packages. MacroPaint still has a hill to dimb.

Or a fancy embossed effect, the IV24's Achilles heel rears its ugly head as the user saves the picture to disk for use in Macropaint.
Now at v2,0, Macropaint has progressed quite a way from the unusable rubbish distributed with the first IV24s, but it still has a fair old way to go. It will now draw in real time with the correct colour and speed has increased significantly, but it is still a very basic paint package with few of the extras associated with the latest versions of OpalPaint.
Other software supplied with the package includes die MyLAD (live action director) utility, used to produce transitions between two live video sources. For MyLAD to function, one must be connected to the VIU RGB inputs, but once the hardware is set up, MyLAC will utilise the IV24’s keyers to produce an "on the fly" transition from a selection of 52, any of Undo Use Probably the best general purpose video card for less than £1,000 which can be instigated by pressing the relevant key.
Of limited use in some environments, My LAD would nonetheless be of assistance to those semi-professional video producers wishing to edit two source tapes down to one while adding a little something extra. Its dependence upon live timing and Amiga key presses will no doubt make it a program whose use has to be mastered with practice, so those with unpredictable or inexpensive VCRs might not find much use for it.
Marvellous modelling Caligari 24, for long one of the most capable and most under-promoted 3D modelling and animation programs on the Amiga, is by far and away the most exciting piece of software in the IV24 s suite.
In its IV24 version it is identical to the latest full release of the package except that rather than use a joystick port dongle, Caligari24-iV24 uses the IV24.
Since its first review m this magazine, Caligari has undergone a great deal of change and now offers what must be the most elegant 3D interlace of any package allied to several new and very powerful features.
The old single object animation system has gone, replaced by a hierarchical system controlled through a simple timeline facility. Using the new features, a user will find animating a number of objects much easier than before, but the ability to pick any part of the object hierarchy and move it independently is a dream.
When a complex object made up of several component parts is loaded into a scene, the animation module can treat the component parts separately and give each of them its own timeline, movement and path The result is that within minutes, very complex animations can be produced with minimal fuss.
Other new features include the excellent organic deformation capability, which makes the creation of smooth natural objects much easier; vastly improved point editing; and 32-bit rendenng, allowing for an 8-bit transparency mask. Using Caligari 24. IV24 users should be able to produce everything from flying logos to space battles with relative IVPIP Possibly the most talked about feature of the original IV24 at the time of its release, and still a feature of the second package, is IVPIP, the picture-in-picture display utility.
This little program throws a window over the Workbench into which IY24 projects a 12-bit display of the current video source.
The window can be resized, zoomed out to full screen size, or the actual image sealed in the X or Y axis, but though initially a good idea, IVPIP is one of those clever utilities for which it is difficult to find a practical application.
No doubt a few ingenious owners will want to monitor a camera input from Workbench or something like that, but most of us will take one look, say "ooh, that's clever", and leave the IVPIP icon to gather Look out for a full in-depth review of this package next month.
Ivhp If Ycry nke to look at, but of how much use dust in a quiet corner of a drawer somewhere.
Despite a few minor reservations about the bundled software, it is difficult to conclude other than that IY24 v2.0 is a vastly improved product with better software, improved hardware performance, and a much better value for money bundle.
Had the board been released in this form from the start, OpalVision and Harlequin might have had more of a fight on their hands.
As it is, 1Y24 looks set to enjoy a renaissance in its fortunes, especially as it is probably the best general purpose video card for less than £1,000. It is no match for the Harlequin TVPaint 2.0 combination, and will lose some of the budget video enthusiast market to products like A Video Y C, but with the features it can offer and the quality of both the grabber and the genlock it should find a home with the upper end of the enthusiast market and the _ .
Semi-professional video world.

Why is the graphics output from my colour 24-pin dot matrix too dark?
? Because the print density is set too high. Lower the print density tr-i ‘ry again.
? Why am I getting horizontal white or black lines across my jrrtxits?
Printers can cause more trouble than any other piece of computer hardware.
Ben Pointer shows that with a little understanding, you and your printer can live together in sweet harmony ? Because the paper feed mechanism of the printer is feeding the PW a little bit too much or not quite far m ough There's no complete solution t: -is problem, it’s a fact of life -

Next there are the different ways that printers actually make marks on the page.
Impact dot matrix printers work by making little pins strike an inked ribbon, thus transferring a pattern of dots on to the paper on the other side of the ribbon.
The cheapest type of impact dot matrix ? An ink jet or bubble jet printer.

Are 9-pin colour dot matnx printers any good?
It's like buying get what you pay for.
H'S buying a Yugo car. You there being only two types of printer - those that plug into the serial port and those that plug into the parallel port.
The differences between the serial port and the parallel port are not complicated.
Data sent down the serial port goes one "bit" at a time. One Ascii character is eight bits big - one "byte" - so to print a letter A, for example, the eight bits that make up the Ascii code for that letter have to be sent one after the other.
RAPID TRANSIT If you could send ail eight bits of a character at once, printing would be quicker, yes? And this is what happens to data sent down the parallel port - all eight bits that make up the Ascii code travel together down eight separate but parallel lines, and all arrive at the printer at the same time.
Most modern printers have a parallel interface, some have both parallel and serial (or the option to fit either), a few still have only serial interfaces. I can't think of a single good reason why an Amiga user should buy a serial printer.

If you need a printer for letters, a 24-pin dot matrix will do,., bubble jet printers also suffer from banding.
The only "jet" printers I have seen that don't suffer from banding are the Hewlett-Packard DeskJets and the Canon BJ-200 and BJ-230 bubble jets. And even ?
Isn’t important. Many businesses will have a cheap 9-pin printer hooked up to their client databases readv to print a lew thousand address labels. Or hooked up to their invoicing system, where fancy quality isn't important But if you want lo write letters that don't look cheap and nasty, you need better quality. The next step up is a 24-pin printer; the pins in these are smaller, which means that the dots they produce are smaller, and so the characters they produce are of a higher quality.
These generally come wilh a few built- in fonts and produce so-called "letter quality" output. If you need a printer mainly for writing letters, a 24-pin impact dot matrix printer will be good enough.
BANDING But if you want to print a lot of graphics, especially if you want colour, think again. Every impact dot matrix printer I have ever seen suffers to one degree or another from "banding" when printing graphics.
Because of very small inaccuracies in the paper feeding mechanism, the paper is fed through a little bit too much, or not quite far enough, which results in thin white or dark lines across the printout.
The main problem with all colour impact dot matrix printers is that the ribbons, which are quite expensive, get dirty very quickly indeed, so you can print only a few decent colour pictures before everything starts to look ’’'muddy" because the ink from the black part of the ribbon is beginning to mix with the other colours.
If high quality graphics are important to you then forget impact dot matrix printers and start looking at ink jet, bubble jet and laser printers.
Ink jet and bubble jet printers use different methods to spray ink from a reservoir or cartridge on to the paper. Both are also dot matrix printers because the char- Is the pnnter broken? Look in your printer manual to find out how to execute the machine's self-test. If the self-test works, obviously the pnnter is not broken, Is the printer cable broken or incorrectly wired? The easiest way to check this property is to connect another printer to your Amiga using the same cable. It would be best if you got someone who knows how to properly set-up the Amiga for printing to check this.
Is the printer's parallel senal port broken? The easiest way to check this property is to connect the printer to another Amiga, using a different cable if possible.
Is the Amiga's parallel serial port broken? The easiest way to find out is to connect some equipment to your parallel serial port which you know works because you've just seen it working on another Amiga.
There are three peripherals that commonly use the parallel port: hand scanners, sound video digitisers, and printers. A modem is the most common penpheral that uses the serial port.
Is the software setup correctly? The most common problem people have when printing is that a requester pops up sayacters they print are constructed from a matrix of dots, just like impact dot matrix printers, except the dots are a lot smaller, which means that the characters are of a higher quality than impact dot matrix, even though the claimed dots-per-inch (dpi) resolutions may be the same or similar.
Be warned that some cheap ink jet printers are not high quality, emulating old 9-pin Epson printers. Look for a graphics output resolution of at least 300 or 360 dots per inch. Be warned also that because their paper feed mechanisms works in exactly the same way as impact dot matrix printers, some of the cheaper ing that the-prrjgram can't print for one reason or another. Almost all of these error requesters get displayed because the Amiga can't find one or more system files that is required for printing.
These files are expected to be in certain directories on the disk from which you booted. If you haven’t booted from the Workbench disk as supplied by Commodore - many applications are supplied as “bootable' disks for example - the chances are that there are important files missing, or there might be old or new versions of files on the disk that are not completely compatible with the older or more modem version of Kickstart in your machine.
No matter how awkward it may seem to you. The Amiga was designed to be booted from the Commodore Workbench disk, not from anyone else's version of a Workbench disk. So if you get an error requester when printing, boot from a proper Workbench disk, leave that disk in the internal drive, run your application from a second floppy drive, and try again. What?
You've only got one disk drive? So buy another one!
Remember that many printers contain more than one printer emulation, and if the machine is set to IBM mode, for example, and you use an Epson printer driver, you will probably get garbage. The emulation and the printer driver have to be matched.
Then you need to use special "coated" paper to get the best results, which is quite a bit more expensive than the ordinary varieties.
HIGH QUALITY For printing colour graphics, the first printer you should consider is the Hewlett-Packard DeskJet 550C, which costs about £500-£60Q. This printer can produce superb results on the proper Hewlett-Packard paper. Nothing cheaper is able to produce decent printouts of 256-colour, HAM and 24-bit graphics.
Believe it or not, laser printers are also dot matrix printers, for exactly the same Understanding CMD CMD is one of the most useful tools provided with the Amiga, yet is probably the least understood and used of the Workbench utilities.
According to Commodore the letters stand for Change Main Device, which doesn't describe its function particularly well because the program does nothing more complicated than enable you to direct printer output to a file instead of a printer, Pnnting to files has various uses. An obvious use is if you don't have a pnnter. But a friend does, and he says he'll do your printouts tor you.
So you could format your document in a word processor, set everything up perfectly in whatever fonts and colours you want to use. Load and position any pictures you want to include, then, before selecting the Print option, run CMD.
By default, the output from whatever program is doing the printing will be directed to a file in RAM called “CMDJile" It will print using the pnnter driver you have selected in Workbench printer preferences. SO before starling you must have selected the correct driver for the printer which will be used.
After copying the CMD file from RAM: on to a floppy disk, you trot round your friend's house, slip the disk into his dnve. Open a Shell window and type: (DPI MoiCMJIU TO PM: Note that the file is sent to PAR:, not PRT:. When you originally printed the CMD_file to disk, the output went via the PRT: device, and the pnnter driver inserted specific printer control codes in the file for the printer(s) that driver was intended to be used with.
Because all those pnnter-specific codes are in the file we don’t need the printer device to do it again, so we can send it straight to the printer down the parallel (PAR:) port, completely bypassing the PRT: printer device.
This assumes you are using a pnnter connected to the parallel port. If it's connected to the serial port simply replace PAR: with SER:. CMD works for both text and graphics. You could print a picture to disk from Deluxe Paint, for example, take the CMD_file round your friend's house and print it on his printer by Copying it to the PAR device.
But remember, before printing at your end you must ensure you have a printer driver selected that works with your friend's printer.
The path and filename for the CMD_file can be changed via Tool Types. Click once on the CMD icon and select Information from the Icons menu. You’ll see five Tool Types in there - DEVICE. FILE. SKIP. MULTIPLE and NOTIFY.
DEVICE will be parallel or serial, depending on which port you have your printer plugged into. FILE is the path and filename of the file that gets created. By default it is ram:CMD_file, but you can change it to anything you like - DFO Mypicture, Work:Printer cmdfiles report. Or whatever.
SKIP teHs CMD to skip any short initial write the software makes to the pnnter. This is normally a pnnter reset code, and if you don't want the pnnter to be reset before »that ink jets and bubble jets are.
Printers use heat to glue extremely particles of "toner" on to the paper, because the toner isn't wet (like ink ts no chance of getting fuzzy it from the ink soaking into the and spreading. You get very' sharp with laser printers, even on ordinary paper. Banding is almost non-existent wilh laser printers, but like everything you buy, the quality of lasers varies with price.
3H8S on th© id from the applications I :hancesare it be old or I ?ty compati- :tart in your Amiga was Dench disk, I So if you i a proper e, run your ain. What?
Ics, the first der is the iOC, which printer can the proper ing cheaper rintouts aphics.
Ers are also v the same Some of the cheaper models use a quite coarse grain of toner, which means the dots produced will be that much larger, and this can sometimes result in something that looks similar to banding.
But there are no bad laser printers, only better ones. If you are thinking about a laser printer, keep in mind that many of them come with only 512k or 1Mb of memory.
Neither of these amounts of memory is enough to produce A4-sized graphics at 300 dpi, like pages from desktop publishing programs for example; you need at least 1.5Mb. If the laser printer has an even higher resolution - like the 400dpi Ricoh LP1200, or the new 600dpi LaserJets
- then you'll need more memory still, at least 4Mb for 400 dpi
and 6Mb for 600 dpi.

Of course, if you want to do this you'll have to copy the file(s) on to a disk that is readable by the computer that will be doing the printing. If it’s a PC you can use CrossDOS or the shareware MultiDOS to create MS- DOS format disks which are readable by both PC and Amiga.

(Amiga Form, s Word Publishers go beyond simply producing normal Idlers and documents (at which Final Copy II naturally excels) and progress into a worid where how the whole liocmneni looks is just as important as what it says. Admittedly, this can be achieved with Desk Top Publishers, but they can't easily be used as Wool Processors, especially when a good looking letter needs creating quickly - they’re far too cumbersome. This is where Final Copy II offers the perfect balance between the two requirements. Ease and speed of use. Combined with complete control and perfect final printed

SafiWood art' admsekdged as the World's leading software jOfA company who desvlop for the Amiga. uul no inlu r WffM system, (hue um'ie a registeredSofiWmlpn*lui t owner, "nil I*' gaming itc e t ii ilmitlcd ¦( A ti, Mtn-": • Dream machine ¦LETTERS Reference your correspondence regarding wishes for a favourite Amiga, I confess to upgrading to an A500 Plus shortly after its release but was not caught out again by the A600.
1 am still waiting for a 32-bit machine with a built-in hard drive (preferably SCSI) and sufficient memory to run my latest upgraded WP and DTP software which at present 1 cannot use due to waiting for such a machine.
The computer should be complete in one casing and not need endless plug-in items such as power packs, second floppy drives, hard drives, accelerators, and SO on to make it a worthwhile combination.
A composite and complete unit seems commonplace in the PC world, yet the Amiga continues to rely on additional plug-in units to achieve its true potential, even though this involves an untidy mess of interconnections which is unreliable and space- consuming.
How about a 32-bit Amiga A2400 laptop with choice of CPU and memory size to suit the individual's taste, requirements, and pocket, complete with built-in PSU, floppy, and hard drive to really compete with the PC laptops?
You on the advantages of the older machines if they have already been expanded and had money spent in accelerating them or bumping up their graphics.
However, you can't deny that though flawed in some ways, the A4000 030 is a definite improvement o:yt older AMIGAs as far as price to power ratios are concerned.
True, a beefed-up A2(XX) will often be far too useful a machine to drop in favour of the A4000 030, but owners of A500s looking to upgrade won't be rushing to buy older models.
Price hike I have been buying Amiga Computing since issue 31 which was around the time I purchased my A500. I think the mag has always been good, and the new look it has been given recently is even better, especially the Gamer Globe part. Please keep up the good work.
Recently I have noticed at the top of R C Poyntiv, Worcester Park Are you listening. Commodore? The users speak! Judging from the number of letters xve’oe had over the past year from those of you who would buy a portable or laptop Amiga, there's a fair-sized market of mobile Amiga users.
Commodore, of course, have a long and proud tradition of listening closely to every suggestion and criticism made by the buying public and acting on them, so we should see some progress on this one soon, shouldn't we? By the way, did I ever tell you about my flying pig?
Good old A2000 ics seem a little less glamorous when I sit smugly before my monitor displaying a high res 24-bit Retina display with no flicker and no faffing about with mode promotion and all that gubbins.
Commodore have taken a good chip set and hedged it in with garbage storage, terrible CPU support, a cut down system box with fewer expansion slots, and a Workbench which doesn't know whether it's coming or going.
I can wait just as long as it takes with my "outdated" machine until the bozos in Can you tell me how many times I will read about the A4000 030 before someone points out that it's slower than my A2000 with GVP combo, less expandable, incapable (due to its crippled 68ECQ30 chip) of some of the tasks my "old-fashioned'’ Amiga can carry out, and useless for ray tracing in its basic form because there's no maths chip?
Call me a traditionalist, but I'm unlikely to give up the joys of using a SCSI drive controlled direct from my 40MHz combo card for a cheapo IDE drive, and the advantages of AGA graphNo more demos, please!

Loson McGarrigle, Aberdeen I've no doubt there are a lot of A2000, A1500, and A3000 owners out there who agree with I am writing in response to G H Jones's letter on page 56 of your June issue as I have almost a totally opposite view to that forward. At the end of your reply you asked for the letters to keep coming in. So here goes.
One of the main reasons for buying your magazine as I have been doing every month since May 1991 has been your CoverDisks.
They have, in my opinion, been vastly superior to those of another magazine i buy in that instead of haying the whole disk full of a demo for a new game which only keeps me interested for about five minutes, they have been full of a range of shareware programs from tunes to games, Workbench hacks such as Ameko, and serious utilities like virus killers.
I feel that this style of disk should be kept in every issue, and any extra full programs you choose to add should come on a second disk. While I, like G H Jones, find it annoying to pay an extra 96p for a disk containing a program I don’t use. I offset this against an excellent program such as Protext which saves me many pounds I uSe this program all the time and it easily out-does Kindwords 2 which I was using before, and Scribble (given away by your competitor).
I do. However, find it very annoying when I've paid £2.99 for a magazine with a CoverDisk and there is nothing on it that I'll ever look at again. This month’s CoverDisk (June) was just saved by Virus Checker v6.22. The gist of this tetter. I guess, is to say please don't fill the CoverDisk with demos or full programs. If you do have a full program, then please put it on another disk even if it costs an extra 96p, After all, an £80 wordpro- cessor for 96p can't be bad.
Nick Burton. London Your letter reflects a strong current of opinion among readers of the magazine who have been with us for a couple of years in that you find our old style of CoverDisk an attractive buy.
We appreciate this sentiment shared by so many readers, and as a result have resisted the temptation to indulge in playable game demos and have, where possible, always tried to squeeze shareware programs onto the disk beside the commercial software.
June's disk had very little space left, which is why only Virus Checker found its way on. But the Juty disk, containing the superb Bars$ Pipes jr, had three useful extra programs carefully selected to appeal to as broad a base of readers as possible.
We hope that this format for the disk - one commercial program accompanied by two or more popular shareware titles - will be adjudged a happy medium by old and new readers alike, but the possibility of doubling up and going for two disks is still there. Again, we would urge any reader with strong views on this one to drop us a line.
LETTERS ¦ worn magazine two purchase prices, one L K buyers, the other for overseas. My fnpt t» that I purchased my copy of issue 10 from Gibraltar Airport's Sky Shop at a pnor of £3,75, The magazine had the overseas price of O 25 covered by a price tag for the higher jmount. Is the shop allowed to do this?
Ttee* it really cost 76p on U p of the £2.99 Id 'hip a magazine to Gibraltar? If the is allowed to do this, then the overseas price printed on the magazine is of pp use to anyone.
Maybe getting a subscription would be answer? I'll just ask the wife!

I used who knows how many disks a rid replacements from fhe software house from which I purchased the program, all to no avail, No other program caused these problems and I eventually sold it in disgust.
Pity, because like flight simulators.
Which brings me to another point A while ago I purchased Virgin's Space Shuttle by mail order only to find that the program would not run with my A500 Plus and GVP A530 combo. Anyone want to buy Shuttle?
At that time it was the only program I had bought which would not nin on this combination. I have programs like PageStream, Dpainl III, Protext 5.5, F19 Stealth Fighter, Formula One Crand Prix, and vo on, which all work fine, so why not Shuttle?

Elusive old floppy Help! I've been trying to track down a 5.25in disk drive for the past three weeks without success. Trilogic had them, but unfortunately no longer stock them. Do you know of anywhere I can lay my hands on one, even second-hand?
Also, is it sensible to change my A500 Plus to an A600 or A1200 so that I can buy one of the cheaper IDE hard drives?
S E Bums. Co Down You should be able to buy a 5.25in Hoppy from ZCL (0543 414817) Qr $ Hica (091-309
1111) . As either of these distributors should still be able to
supply the Commodore
5. 25in drive.
As for upgrading, I wouldn't bother with the A600 unless you're only interested in games. If you really want to upgrade from your A500 Plus, go for an A1200HD.
You can either purchase one with a Wang warranty or opt for one of the third-party kits which have less extensive warranties but are cheaper. Most will be advenised in this issue, so sit back and do some armchair shopping.
Interested me, so with the benefit of experience I rang Microprose to see if B17 would run with an A530.1 was told no, so at least I have saved some money, but I would still like to know why it doesn’t run. Microprose * have other programs which work on my A530, so why not B17?
Could it have something to do with the fact that both B17 and Shuttle were ported from the PC? If so, it's time the programmers started to produce ported programs which are written to the Amiga guidelines. Your comments would be appreciated.
I Farrar, Hayle To be fair to Microprose, most of their simulation games appear on the PC before the Amiga, and many of them have few if any problems with accelerated machines. True, the first B17 release suffered from a few compatibility problems, but the company have said they'll look at these.
Cost?
I've had a great deal of fun with Maxiplan4. I’m sure I would have more with this data disk.
E R Benton. London You don't need to spend any extra money on a data disk in order to make use of Maxipland - simply format a blank floppy and use it as your data disk onto which all new worksheets can be saved.
Refer to the manual if in doubt as to how to do this or what to name the disk.
On the other fund, there are far too many software houses which do make enough efforts to ensure that complex sim games work wilh non-standard accelerated AMIGAs such us those using GVP boards, Users of this sort of machine are exactly the sort one would expect to be queueing up for B17, so making sure it worked on as many accelerators as possible would be the sensible step.
Of course, if hardware and ssoftware manufacturers were to stick more closely to Commodore’s guidelines in the first place, problems with compatibility rmild be far less numerous.
CD tommyrot The current argument for games being priced at £25 and in many cases well over goes something like this: Programmers' wages + musicians' wages + artists' wages + packaging + marketing + overheads = price.
In addition to this there's the damage done by the chaps (Mr Booth's own words were too picturesque to print - Ed) called pirates. I am not knocking the current prices, as overall I think it a fair sum in comparison to wasting loads of dosh for a film you'll only watch a couple of times.
However, can someone please tell me how CO prices are calculated?
If a CD game uses, say, 6Mb of CD space (ie 6(7 normal disks), and the bigger the program the more expensive the costs of programming It, then it'll cost more than a floppy- based game. How then can companies make a profit from charging just £20 for CDTV games? There are three possibilities:
1. Pirates are blatantly killing their own games scene and that
of everyone else who can t afford a CD drive.
2. CD games will make no profit and are really produced by a
bunch of software houses doing a lot of good work for
"charriddeee" but they don't like to talk about it.
3. Present disk-based games which have 4Mb or less of sound and
graphics - much less than many cheaper CDTV games - are being
produced by a bunch of software houses who are taking the piss
and they don't like to talk about H. I hope I haven’t offended
anyone as I've no intention of doing so. I just want an answer
to this interesting question, Daryl Booth, Ramsgate It is an
interesting point that, though CDTV games are virtually
unpirat- able, they often contain a great deal of coding and
information over their floppy-based rivals while remaining in
most cases either the same price or cheaper.
No software house which still has all its marbles is going to answer a question as loaded as that which you posed above, but it is to be hoped that the repeated airing of genuine disillusionment such as this will prompt the industry to adopt more realistic pricing.
In the opinion of this humble pundit. The quicker we can all convert to CD the better. Cds don't suffer from read write errors, they can t be pirated in the usual way, they negate the need for disk swaps, and carry infinitely more information.

Need a HardDrive for vour A1200?
TUTO R I A LB II n the first part of this series you created a working Amiga DOS disk, I learned how to open the Shell and Inched upon the raw basics of how to Mch the commands. Now let's take a bet-
* f look at the Shell.
Ter. Press the backspace key (marked with an arrow, to the right of Del) a few times.
Letters at the end of the line, to the left of the cursor, are deleted.
Now press the left arrow on the cursor pad. Notice how this time the cursor moves along the line without disturbing anything. Press the right arrow and the cursor moves the other way.
Keep the right arrow held down and the cursor will move to the end of what you typed (including any extra spaces) but not beyond that point. Now hold down Boot the machine with your working AmigaDOS disk. Locate the Shell icon (if you followed, last month's instructions, it ¦ill be on the Desktop already) and open ft. As before, the Shell window will open and display its default prompt - ready for JBU to enter something. Now enter the Delving into Shell In the second instalment of his AmigaDOS series, Mark Smiddy looks a little closer at the workings of the Shell AmigaDOS will dutifully
execute the command - hopefully correctly this time.
Now let's try a couple of different commands It doesn't matter at this stage what the commands do, and Shell's output is not shown for clarity - but those are deliberately difficult to enter... IXHmEmtPM PROCESS 1VLIST Stf: IFORPUTs'Filf is: Isis' Now let's add an extra argument to the last command: 1 L1ST STS: IfORlUTs-Mlf is: Isis’ ILL Did you remember to press the up arrow and just type the rest of the line? It’s a lot less typing and much faster that way!
Just suppose you wanted to use that ADDBUFFFRS command again. Press the up arrow a few times; you will see each command you have entered appear again in reverse order - including any bloopers.
This is fine if you have just typed a few entire line - alternatively, you can use Ctrl-U.
Now type the single letter A, then hold Shift and press the up arrow. Shell nips through its history1 buffer, locates the first line starting with A and displays it ready to be edited. You can also do this using Ctrl-R.
Shell reads the entire string from the prompt, so you can narrow the search by entering a more specific String; say "ADD" in this case. You'll learn more of this as your experience grows.
Press Shift-Down to clear the line and return to the end of the history buffer.
Now locate the command LIST... ALL you entered earlier using the Shift*Up shortcut. Now watch what happens when you press Ctrl-W.
Go back through these steps and practise them. You'll soon find they come naturally - especially if you are a poor typist: like most computer programmers for example.
Now let's shift our attentions to disks and disk formatting. Disk formatting is quite a complex process achieved by some clever electronic trickery - a basic grounding of which is given later in this article.
Before proceeding any further though, make sure the write-protection notch on your working AmigaDOS disk - the one you booted from - is open. You will also need a fresh blank disk - preferably a new int line below. Don't enter the prompt and do not forget to press Return at the end of the line - just try it once: 1 MDBUFFERS RfQ; RED: kit 20 bufftn 1 This is quite a long command and will take some time if you are a poor fspist Did you get it right? If not, AmigaDOS will respond with an error - tar instance: 1XRDBUPFERI DFO: Unknown coaomd: AD58l! FcRb 1 U you were clever or careful enough to
frt this line right first time, go straight to ftr top of the class and retype it with a deliberate spelling mistake like the one above All is not lost, rhe Shell has some
• mple" word processing" property's and can remember the list
few commands you entered. This is very useful because it Jflows
you to edit mistakes and make subtle changes to commands.
Locate the cursor keys on vour key- (there's four of them arranged like upwite-down "T"). Press the up arrow v Notice how the command you has reappeared on the line? You x-e the cursor positioned at the ¦he line bevond the last charae- eilher Shift key and press the left arrow.
Ibis time, the cursor moves to the start of the line.
Do the same with the right arrow and the cursor moves straight to the end of the line (you can get the same effect by using Ctrl-A; hold down Ctrl and press A to get to the start of the line, and Ctrl-Z to get to the end).
Position the cursor at the point where you made the mistake and use the backspace key to removed the offending letters. Now enter the correct ones, and continue this way unt line reads exactly as follows: ¦ TUTORIAL V one straight out of the box.
From the AmigaDOS prompt, enter the following command: WOIMT Dim DFO; (ME ‘SootDisk* Insert the disk to be formatted in drive DFO: and press Return. Notice how AmigaDOS loads the format command from disk then the message appears.
If you move the AmigaShell window out of the way you will also note how the disk’s icon has changed to DF0:Busy. If you have more than one drive, you can replace this command with: 1 F0tHAT D1IYE IF1; RARE ‘BootDisk* or if you have an A2000: 1 FSMUT DRIVE BF2: HARE "BeotDlsk* Place the new disk in the internal drive (second drive if you have one) and press the Return key (Enter does the same on extended keyboards).
AmigaDOS will now start the format displaying some useful progress messages as it goes. If the formatting process finds a dud track the format will be aborted and 4 The Shell has some simple word processing properties you will be prompted for a different disk.
Thankfully, this sort of error is quite rare - even for unbranded disks - but if you get the same error on two or more disks then either change brand or get the machine tested. When the format is completed the icon changes back to say BootDisk, Disk formatting is a process whereby certain timing information is constructed on the disk’s magnetic surface. The Amiga formats disks with 160 tracks (80 each side) each containing 11 sectors of 512 .0:) fonat ?

eatltr than It lookd Amiga can only get 880k of data on a
normal disk rather than the full 1Mb unformatted
capacity usually quoted.
The sectors have to be separated by a small gap so the machine can determine where one stops and the next one starts.
Bytes. This gives rise to the 880k formatted capacity. A couple of things are worth mentioning at this stage, although they are beyond the scope of what are normally considered "beginner's topics".
You do not have to understand a lot of what follows, but it is useful groundwork.
Workbench Screen In days gone by, disks had a series of sector holes arranged around the hub ring.
As the disk spun, the holes passed over a light sensor - rather like a burglar alarm - and triggered a sector pulse for each of the seven or eight sectors. Later systems (5,25in) used a method of soft-sectoring where a single hole was used to trigger the start of a track.
Select Device To Femat The 3.5in disks used in the machine use an MFM or Modified Frequency Modulation format. Using this system, the start of each track is determined entirely in the format itself. The start of each track is dynAMIGAlly encoded in the format using a "magic number” that could not normally appear under the MFM coding system.
This makes the disks much faster because an entire cylinder (pair of tracks) can be read or written in one go without having to hang around for the sector marker. This also helps explain why the With Intuition, formatting operationi are muth more friendly The "invisible" data and sector gap is J what accounts for the extra 120k of wasted storage, Workbench Screen Now the crunch: You cannot store 880k of user data (your stuff) on a disk.
With the traditional Amiga filingj system - one of those we’ll use - it is only j possible to get 837k: and even then, only at a pinch.
A filing system (often abbreviated to ; FS) is the software which determines the ' way information is laid down on a formatted disk. As far as a Workbench user isj concerned, a disk could use any one of j four filing systems and they wouldn't know the difference.
Although the filing system has little to i do with the way disks are actually formatted (apart from a single ID byte) it is j worth knowing the difference.
AmigaDOS will always choose the most appropriate format for arty particular device - other options such as FFS, IFS and DCFS must be switched on when the format takes place. You can change a disk from one FS method to another by simply | "quick" formatting it but this will irrevo I cably destroy all the information it held.

One of the good things about HiSoft Basic is that its syntax is closely related to the original Amiga Basic and other Microsoft-stylc Basics. This means that converting programs to and from these various forms is usually straightforward.
HiSoft Basic does, however, have its share of enhancements and, as with most Basics, these include a number of less important language extensions.
For example there are Incr and Deer instructions that provide an alternative way of expressing increment and decrement operations. So, instead of writing x=x+l, HiSoft Basic allows you to write incr x. While this latter shorthand form might sometimes be useful when dealing with long variable names or expressions it does tend to make code less portable and so is usually best avoided.
One of the things however which makes HiSoft Basic stand out from the competition is that most of its enhancements, rather than being of the trivial "bells and whistles" variety, have centred on the needs of the serious programmer.
For example the language supports recursion (allowing sub-programs to call themselves) and it provides good error trapping and break handling instructions which enable your program to branch to special routines when error break conditions are encountered.
The usual type of machine code calling facilities are available but as well as this a powerful Calls statement exists which allows sub-programs to be called indirectly (using an address held in a variable).
HiSoft Basic also provides specialised Amiga goodies including links to the Amiga system libraries and a Svstab function which allows access to a range of system variables (Intuition's message port, the WorkBench startup message, screen bit- plane data).
The end result is that although the core facilities of HiSoft Basic make it an ideal language for the beginner, advanced Amiga programmers will find that there is little they cannot do with the 14 f j language!

UTILITIES!
Dicky disks are a problem that affect even the most careful computer user at one time or another. As a result, software safety - whether it be on a hard disk or floppy - is an essential part of any system.
In the past, software security was primarily the domain of the PD with pro- crams like Fixdisk leading the field when it came to reviving the dead, while software such as Chopper provides a means cl managing, and more importantly back- rfig-up, hard disk partitions.
Although still excellent, many of the shareware offerings do have their faults which in the case of Fixdisk means that repairs can only be applied to hard disks «* :th a maximum storage of 42Mb.
In an attempt to plug the gap in the market, commercial developers Joined the fray in the form of Central Coast New Horizons with their Quarterback and Quarterback Tools duet offering similar features to the new Ami-Back range with hard disk backup plus repair for both ‘’ppies and hard disk partitions respectively.
- Could you fall in love with this twin collection of hard drive
tools and back-up utilities? You might do when your drive next
crashes, as Paul Austin discovers... Ami-Back Tools Although
Ami-Back comes in two forms it s probably the Tools - or
maintenance Utok - which will see the most success. As hr as
hard drive house keeping is concerned it's fair to say that
Ami-Back Tools ;•» probably the best utility I've yet
encountered.
With the power of Quarterback Tools trjt's a fairly sweeping statement but it's the program's impressive array of extras that tip the balance in its favour.
Unlike the opposition Ami-Back Tools » more of a collection of utilities under a generic interface rather than a single oolving front end.
Starting from the top, AB-Tools opens with G.P. - otherwise known as the general practitioner - a program offering disk optimisation, which in simple terms reorganises the disks data structure to pro- Mde the most efficient performance possible. Although a pleasant touch, most theme of reincarnation we have the next utility, namely 911-Recover)- which as the dramatic title implies can be the last hope for an ailing hard disk.
If the unthinkable happens and your hard disk disappears without a trace, no longer appearing as a valid AmigaDOS volume, 911 -Recovery can be used to savage lost data by backing-up the contents of the ailing volume to another, or alternatively on to floppies.
Next comes the curiously-titled Antiseptic which unlike the rest of the collection has been designed to destroy data rather than recover it.
In certain circumstances deletion of data can be just as important as recover)- - prime examples being sensitive information you don't want to fall into the wrong hands or perhaps prior to resale of existing hardware.
As experienced users will be aware, simply formatting a volume doesn't destroy the data and in fact it's this very principle that allows the vast majority of ?
Mon Ami modem hard disk controllers do a very good job at optimising performance and as a result only when the disk is full will optimising have any major benefits.
Disk Analyst comes next providing a find-and-fix procedure for problems within the disk structure itself. Common faults such as validation or checksum errors will be found and fixed - although it's possible to vary the programs operation so that faults will be simply located and added to an error list, repaired immediately or reported prior to repair.
RESURRECTION After analysis comes the software's very own resurrection program in the form of Reviver. As the name suggests, Reviver is designed to restore deleted files.
However like all such software the process will only work effectively if the volume in Question hasn't been rewritten to since the files where deleted. An added bonus is that even a Quick Format can be reversed breathing life back to even the most sickly software. Continuing the ¦ UTILITIES recover)' software to operate.
As a result. Antiseptic has been designed to totally eradicate any trace of existing data whether it be hidden in the free space or visible.
Once selected the space selected will be completely over-written and to be really sure up to five passes can be made over the volume which means only very advanced technology would be able to recover the information - and there's certainly nothing commercially available that in that league.
To close the collection, Lab Test offers the chance to generate a CRC database, or Cyclic Redundancy Check Code which simply snapshots all the information pertaining to the volume in question.
Once Stored the file can be used to compare the database with what is actually contained on the volume with primary purpose being the detection of viral activity, Ami-Back Although just as feature-packed as its counterpart. Ami-Back Is a much more dedicated package restricting its field of interest to hard drive back-up as opposed to salvage, optimisation or whatever else.
Above all, the program's primary claim to fame is speed and after testing against Quarterback - its main commercial opposition - the seemingly inflated claims of the Ami-Back marketing department seem to hold true. It took just 47 seconds to back up a 910k director)’, while Quarterback doddered along at a rather embarrassing 77 seconds for the same operation.
In addition to speed, Ami-Back also offers flexibility in the form of support for not only floppies but HD floppies, hard drives, SCSI tape devices and even DAT - not that you'll come across many of those in the average - JkMt-BACK Backup IMIlH An Hard Driw Backup Utilllr CorxrluM • 1990. 1991. 1992 Him Ml iQhtar Boftuara HtvtlHmtnl.

Asset sharing Both packages share an extra scheduler program allowing them to become totally automated. And as a result when active the program will fire up and apply the desired procedure at the month, day and hour you chose with accuracy down to five-minute increments.
Obviously for floppy based back-ups this isn't particularly useful as someone still has to be on hand to swap the disk. * , However for the pro user with perhaps a tape streamer or back-up partition the option is invaluable and vividly illustrates the market that the Ami-Back range has been targeted towards.
Alongside the scheduler both packages also share a common affinity with Arexx plus all versions of AmigaDOS.
Better still, the aforementioned SCSI tapes - or tape streamers as they're more often called - don't require any special software in order to be driven. And, tape backups themselves can be stored not only on single tapes but also multiples when necessary. On top of that, multiple fixed and variable block mode adds the finishing touch to tape streamer flexibility.
On a more traditional note, the program's back-up options also allow storage direct to a single AmigaDOS file or partition along with a special Image back-up unique to Ami-Back. Thanks to the aforementioned image feature even MSD05, Amax or Unix partitions can be saved any restored.
However, such back-ups are restricted to the entire device and as a result it's impossible to selectively restore files as is the case with a standard AmigaDOS file system.
However even with the "all or nothing” approach Ami-Back still remains unique and very attractive to users playing host to alien emulators or D05 systems.
Regardless of what or where you choose to store you data, Ami-Back also allows password protection for those sensitive files you don’t won't anyone else to get their mucky mitts on.
In addition to the back-up-specific options, the program also shares some similar features to its tool-laden namesake. First up is a version of the 911-Recovery software mentioned above. Although not identical it works in a similar manner by salvaging essential files from the wreckage of even the most terrifying hard drive disaster.
The next option is fairly reminiscent of CRC offered by AB-Tools. However in the case of Ami-Back the option is entitled Compare Mode. This simply checks backed- up data with the present system information in order to spot any potential loss or senility on the part of your archive. Aside from a gtxxl selection of storage options, handling Arguably the most flexible backup program on the market... and archive management can often be just as important and here again Ami-Back scores well with an impressive and often unique range of filters and intelligent file handling options.
At the forefront of its intellectual options come the program's exclusion and inclusion filters which can be applied during both back-up and restoration allowing the filtering of file names, directory names, comments, protection bits and date stamps.
FILTERING It's even possible to apply a touch of Boolean logic with AND OR combinations allowing even more subtle filtering of the files heading either to or from the chosen device or file.
Continuing in an intellectual vein, the program thankfully provides the ability to skip missing disks during restoration as well as advanced individual file handling options which allow existing data to be either skipped, overwritten or renamed when necessary.
As ever we’ve arrived at the inevitable potted opinion, for not one but both Ami- Back and Ami-Back Tools. As for overall appear I think the features speak for themselves but as is the case with most power software, there's a price to be paid.
In the case of both packages the price in question is a rather loft)' £69.93 which to be frank is quite a bit more than the average user would be willing to part with considering the proliferation of acceptable if not spectacular products in the PD or as shareware.
Having said that it must be stressed that nothing in the PD comes even remotely close to the power offered by the Ami-Back duet. As a result I can still envisage respectable sales to the pro and semi-pro market.
The aforementioned sales will probably be best reflected in the turnover of Ami- Back Tools which easily out-guns the existing version of Quarterback Tools (although the imminent release of QB Deluxe could alter the situation) but it would have to be a very dramatic upgrade to belter AB-T's excellent collection of utilities.
As for Ami-Back - the situation is pretty much the same with an array of features that make it arguably the most flexible and certainly the fastest hard drive back-up program on the market However it must be said it's not all good news for Ami-Back as it will have a very- hard fight against the massively popular Quarterback HD back-up system which - although slower - has a strong position as the industry standard when it comes to large scale file transfer.
Obviously if you plan to use Ami-Back as simply a back-up method for your own files this won't be a problem. However if you need to send large amounts of data to other users Quarterback still has the upper E3 Product: Ami-Back Ami- Back Tools Supplier: Micro-Pace UK Ltd Tel: 0753 551888 Price: £69.95 each ¦ »« i. i te all ¦¦¦¦¦¦I kI or v Color r(!•«• : Bvt• » : D I ak s !

The likes of Deluxe Paint are just a hit too youngster unfriendly for the average child, which is precisely why Kid Pix came into being.
By numbers Electronic Arts set the standard in the nursery with a paint package designed specifically for children.
Colin Yarnall turns back the years... The package was originally designed by the father of a three-year-old as a simple, fun to use, computer paint pad. It was further developed, on the PC, to become a commercial product suitable for children of all ages. Now it has been transported to the Amiga to fill the gap in the market left by the more traditional art programs.
Apart from the disks and user guide, the box contains a sheet of six colourful sticky badges. Rather than being aimed at children, the manual is written for parents. Let's face it, kids will want to get straight into the program and younger ones won't be able to read anyway.
It isn't necessary to look through the user's guide before launching into Kid Pix as discovering how to use the package is an extremely enjoyable experience.
The package comes on three disks and hard drive owners will be pleased to hear that an install script has been provided.
Because the third disk contains the French, German and Italian sound samples, less fortunate users do not need to access all three unless they are language gurus.
Amiga left wanting Sadly, the Amiga version lacks the full complement of routines found on personal computers. With the IBM version it is possible to triple a stamp size as it is pasted. There are also facilities within the editor to rotate and flip pictures. The inability to do the later on the Amiga reduces the number of available stamps by a factor of eight.
Strangely, an addendum to the manual puts shortcomings down to technical differences between the Amiga and PC.
A really glaring omission is the inability to load any files other than those originally created using KidPix.
The special file format used can be read by Deluxe Paint but any permanent changes to the file will render it unreadable by KidPix, The PC version uses PCX files, which are the Standard format on that platform, thereby permitting pictures to be exchanged between packages.
These are not the only features to be omitted. The IBM version has features such as keyboard short-cuts, a toggle between sound effects and playing a song; plus the ability to stop drawing geometric shapes before they are completed.
There are no obvious technical reasons for these differences and they could well appear as the product is developed.
Total of 112 brush pictures that can be doubled in size.
Although they follow themes including people, animals, transport and Q food, it is possible to design your own from kj scratch or customise the LAU existing ones.
User-generated stamps HT are saved to disk for use in the next session and can be restored, at any time, to the ones originally supplied.
All the usual routines for drawing lines, boxes, circles and filled areas are present but these have been extended to produce Some zany effects. Each tool has an array of attention grabbing styles and options plus an associated sound sample that is played to further retain a child's interest.
There is a rubber stamp tool that has a The great thing about the default stamps is that they have been designed to I ULM be used together, to create complete scenes, without the need for any complicated drawing.
For example, it would be a simple task to create a complete train carrying zoo animals on their way to a teddv bears' picnic.
Hats and glasses can be combined with faces, 70s smilies, snowmen, cats, dogs and even a wide-eyed frog!
Sections of a picture can be captured, using the moving van tool, then moved to another position. A variety of rectangles may be used to define the shape of the cut.
Alternatively, the user can elect to use the magnet in order to grab an area of any size they choose. Rather than remove a large chunk, leaving a conspicuous white ohlong, screen sections can be copied using either the edit option of the menu bar or the mouse control key combination.
Fantastic effects can be produced with the wacky brush tool which has no less than 28 styles. One of these can be used to produce bare trees that would otherwise be beyond the abilities of a child, These are no ordinary trees mind you, they're fractal, which makes them more varied and realistic than predrawn ones could possibly be.
Forget complex equations, and overnight rendering times, because three fractals literally take no more than a cou- Stomps allow complex pl(tnns to be (noted quickly pie of seconds to produce! They are randomly generated at the click of a mouse button. The only brainwork required is deciding whether to make large or small ones.
By default they are little, but, by pressing the Ctrl key at the same time as the mouse button, larger trees can be generated. Adding the finishing touches, in the form of leaves, is a simple matter of selecting a colour and using the spray paint brush.
Thick 3D lines may be used as just that, or to create backgrounds. For example, combining blue paint with the 3D brush Can result in striated skies and choppy seas. Pressing the Ctrl key at the same time changes the white 3D highlight to a selection of randomly-picked colours taken from a pastel palette.
In fact, pressing the Ctrl key with most wacky brushes reveals a hidden aspect.
The additional paint effects vary from brush to brush but generally involves changing the colour, toggling fill, enlarging the brush or altering the shape of the affected area.
For younger children, who are more concerned with the process of painting rather than the end product, there is a lid FU ¦ien picture* are revealed using the mystery eraser A variety of snowflakes are created at a flick of a button drippy brush that simulates excessive amounts of paint.
As a line is drawn, blobs of paint drip down the screen. Similarly, a leaky fountain pen is available which continually allows ink to flow even when the pen has stopped moving. This results in drip trails as lines are drawn, and pools where the pen pauses.
Problems could be encountered by young children if they discover the menu bar and begin to experiment. This is where the file options are located, together with facilities to change the native language and silence the sound feature.
Making the program kid-proof is achieved by entering a special mode which removes these routines, leaving all of the remaining tool options available.
The package doesn't stop at emulating real paint but provides effects that could only be produced on a computer. For example, there is a caterpillar pen which creates a paint trail that follows the mouse pointer around the screen. It is a cross between a kaleidoscope and the early computer game, Snake.
Connect-the-dots plots numbered points as a line is drawn then removes the line when drawing is complete. Lines may be drawn separately with the number sequence continuing from where it left off.
The completed series of dots can then be printed out as a DIY dot-to-dot.
An amusing tool that goes by the name of Electric Mixer manipulates drawings to create instant patterns and effects. The night and day option inverts the palette; wallpaper extracts a rectangle from the picture and pastes it to create a tiled effect; broken glass fragments the drawing into large triangles, while the outliner draws around all of the lines in a picture.
The weather is almost always a feature of children's pictures and has been well catered for. A variety of snow Hakes are created at the click of a button and, by holding down the Ctrl key at the same time, they can be melted to form rain drops!
A snowman, streaked lightning and the sun are all included in the set of stamps for added effect.
EDUCATION Although the package was intended solely for playful drawing, it contains an element of education in the form of the text tool. When a letter or number is stamped onto the screen, a sample saying that character is heard. The voices are varied and provide a painless introduction to learning the association between these fundamental sounds and symbols.
There is also a wacky brush that paints consecutive letters of the alphabet or a user-defined text string.
Experimenting with lots of options can result in a complete mess. Simple mistakes can be corrected with the Undo function but more complex ones usually mean that it is time to start again.
The task of clearing the screen has been animated in a variety of imaginative ways, bom a simple fade to an engulfing black hole. One of these exciting methods is called firecracker which explodes a bomb and sends shock waves across the screen.
Hidden pictures can be revealed using the special mystery eraser. As the rubber is moved across the picture, it slowly disappears to be replaced with a black and white drawing. There are around 15 mystery pictures including a lion, horse, ladybird, shell, eye and an elephant.
They are mainly composed of dots, giving them a grainy appearance, so a couple of pictures lack clarity. The decision to use this style of clip art was probably due to the fact that the palette is limited to 16 colours and cannot be altered.
Unfortunately, there is no facility to import your own clip art so this feature is TUTORIAL!

After a month of solid tinkering there's a good chance that the hard core have already spotted at least some of the amazing power features within WtPJr.
However, with the program’s plethora of sliders, buttons and assorted gadgets, I can guarantee even the most enthusiastic muso will have overlooked at lot of what’s on offer.
If you can cast you mind back to the last issue you'll recall the mandatory whistle stop tour of the software, highlighting the essential set-up and basic editing options.
This month we'll be going quite a bit deeper with a detailed look at the program's multitrack editing, flags, and grouping options.
Before we start, please ensure you make a copy of the demo song on the CoverDisk.
The reason for this is that we'll be using it to provide a common point of reference during the tutorial which you may wish to save m its edited form later on - under no circumstances save over the original!
Control Obviously for Midi users the internal sounds offered by the demo aren’t exactly ideal. As a result, feel free to replace the Spare keys and AMIGAphone tools with Midi-In and Midi-Out respectively.
TOOLS Tools can be removed by simple mouse selection followed bv hitting the Delete kev.
To add a new tool simply drag a copy from another track or the tool box. When in position, double-click to open the tools requester - if available - and then adjust the various parameters where necessary.
Never has a sequencer afforded so much creatively-angled control over composition than Bars&Pipes jr.
AC continues its tutorial to last month’s mega CoverDisk giveaway You may remember from the last issue that the editing of individual tracks was covered - at least in brief. This month it's multitrack editing that comes under the spotlight giving you the power to editing across the entire composition.
Thanks to the proliferation of flags scattered across the top of the track window, actually spotting the multi-rack edit markers can be a tricky business. If you take a dose look you should be able to spot a purple triangle which can be split into two halves between which becomes the edit area.
If you click on either half you should be able to drag it across the top of the track window, Obviously because the two markers form a sandwich it's impossible to move the right-hand marker to the left of its counterpart, and as a result attempting this will rejoin the two halves of the edit sandwich.
Before we go anv further it would be wise to take a quick trip to the preferences window highlighting the Align With option which should reveal the flag alignment default settings. + If you've already experimented with the various flags you may have noticed that they tend to snap to a bar or measure automatically. Although confusing at first this offers a very easy way to make clean edits for cut and paste operations.
For our purposes select the measure option - a check mark should appear alongside. Now return to the track window and try dragging the edit markers and you should see the flags snap into position as defined.
Before we perform the first edit, open the flag window and position it as shown in the screenshot. You can now either drag the edit markers as described above or alternatively type the figures directly into the flag requester.
For our example, set the markers so that the flag window reads O00l.0l.00 for the input and 0008.01.00 in the output - thereby selecting the first eight bars of the piece.
Due to the size of the sequence area you can only see a three-bar section at any one time - as a result you'll need the assistance of the sequence drag bar at the bottom of the track window in order to set the appropriate edit points using the mouse. Finally move to the edit pull-down menu and select the cut option. Now rewind the sequencer, hit the play button and - Surprise, surprise - the first eight bars are missing. Feel free to experiment with the various generic edit optioas available in the pull down - but remember the flags stay active and will automatically move to the next
eight bars ready for additional editing.
In addition to the edit flags, another ten icons lurk alongside. Assuming the flag window is still open we'll work from top opening with the punch-in and punch-out flags.
As the name suggests these flags are used to temporarily drop the sequencer into record mode and then back out at a pre - defined point. Punch recording is a popular ?
A click and drag will place any one of four available markers throughout your production The excellent loop option providing eight attempts at a recording Automated punch- in and out See exactly where you are in the Instant playback termination with a dick, song courtesy of the position marker drag, and a drop of the stop flag mvffl Qr sokf track control to process the entire track there is eight to choose from dick on the appropriate arrow comes the program's selection of four markers which, like both of the above, can be dragged or numerically positioned.
Although not as dynamic as the punch- in function, markers can often be invaluable on bigger productions giving instant access to vital sections bv simply clicking on the appropriate marker button to auto-locate any point in the song.
Once selected the sequencer will jump directly to the chosen point - even during playback. If the sequencer isn't playing a double-click will not only jump to the marker but also automatically begin playback. Better still if, set up to record - play and record both active - the same double click will not only jump to the marker but also add the metronome lead-in prior to recording.
B&PJr's loop option is a prime example of a real power feature which can so easily be overlooked by simply tinkering rather than following the tutorial, To use the feature Simple drag or type the placement into the flag requester.
The flags themselves are represented by two circular arrows on a red background with the head pointing down for input and up for output. Assuming you've placed

maka moving around a long very eaiy Become a groupie!
Just above the flags you'll notice a bar full of assorted icons and buttons. The first of which is the sokVrnute button which toggles the selected track or group of tracks between soto performance, a muted state or back to the default with all tracks playing in concert.
The following eight numbered buttons all belong to the group option. To create a group dick on any of the number buttons followed by the group button itseff. Now click on two or three tracks - each should light up in turn.
Click on the group button to de-select and then dck on a different number. Your previous selection will now disappear - however if you now re-select the new group by clicking on its number, it should reappear Try clicking on the solo mute button and you'll see the power of the grouping options in action. In order to assist grouping and tool connection the two up down arrows alongside the group button can be used to move a selected track up or down the list. To try the function de-select the group, pick a track at the bottom of the window and hit the up arrow. Simple but effective...
Finally we've arrive at the iodize option - which you’ll find sandwiched between the solo button and group numbers. To use the feature, drag an appropriate tool into the window, select the track or tracks to be processed and execute the toolize option from the edit pull-down menu. Although generally used for quantising, applying more exotic effects such as echo can produce some unusual and pleasant results.
Technique in the studio allowing replacement of mistakes without the need to completely re-record an entire sequence.
In addition, punching-in can also be used to add extra notes to a section without overwriting the original by simply replacing the red R - record - with a M - merge on the tracks mode button.
To use the feature, simple drag the flags into position or type the appropriate figures directly into the flag requester. Next set the metronome - via the windows pull-down or window icon - with the lead-in of you choice.
RED ARROW Now move back to the track window and select the track of your choice - ensuring that a red arrow appears on the button beside the track name. Make sure the track mode button shows either a red R or M and that the appropriate input and output tools are in place, If everything looks correct and you can hear output, move to the transport control and click once on the in-out control button
- shown as a two arrows above a single line. As you do this the
sequencer will jump to the IN point minus the lead-in defined
by the metronome.
To record the section simply click on the Play button and the sequencer will move through the lead-in and automatically drop m and out of record mode as defined To practice the section follow the same procedure but make sure that record option is disabled on the target track - or indeed any other.
To review your work simply click on the IN icon within the transport control and the sequencer will automatically rewind to its position - the same applies to all the flag buttons in the transport.
Next in the flag window run-down each flag at the appropriate position for the section ensure the track is set up to record and move to the transport window.
If you now' click on the Loop button alongside the record button the sequena'r will pause momentarily while setting up the loop and then return with a small requester. To continue simply click on the Play button and the sequencer will begin the first of eight passes over the looped section.
You now have eight opportunities to either try variations on a theme or perfect a solo. When the final pass is complete the requester will be replaced by another showing each attempt as a number which can be selected and thereby auditioned with the rest of the song.
When you've picked your favourite, simply dick OK and that version will be written to the track while the rest are discarded.
Better still, merge can also be used in addition to basic record, so if you only want to add a few embellishments to an existing section, replacing the R with an M in the track's input will give you the same eight attempts at perfection without destroying the original notes.
Bringing the flag collection to a close are arguably the least dynamic of the dozen, namely the song position and stop flags.
Although both can be dragged just like all the others, it's likely you'll use them more often via the flag window.
In the case of the position marker, typing or dragging simply chances the current song position and as a result it's from this new point where the sequencer will kick in when the play button is hit.
As for the stop flag things are even simpler. To use it simply drag it to or type the position where you want to stop the sequencer, whether it be in play or record mode.
Alas that's all that space will allow for this month, however next time we'll take a dose look at the various tools and how to use them, the mysteries of the pull-down menus plus a guide to the finer points of individual track editing.

younger children. LJ There's a useful parenVteacher preferences screen, wh»qh allows the E setting of fhe number of spellings per session as well as the ability lo P j toggle the colourful backdrop - great for those with fuzzy TV sets Pji instead of monitors. ¦¦¦ The preferences screen can be disabled with a password should this bo required, after which it will cease to appear on the menu accessible to the child
- a nice touch. Preferences can also be saved.
Selecting Teach me" from the clunky, easy-to-use menu displays a crude but recognisable picture of an object, together with its name (van, for instance) and Amiga speech spelling the word out (V... A... N...). Sampled speech would have been better - the Amiga’s dulcit tones have always reminded me of the old Texas instruments’ Speak and Spell games - but it's recognisable enough.
I found it hard to escape once I'd entered an exercise; although I specified five questions, they seemed to go on forever. Maybe I did something wrong, but it points to a bit of tuning in the user-friendliness department, or alternatively. A bit of debugging!
The game involves the same pictures you see in the "teach me" practice mode, but with the first letter of each word missing, The child has to enter this letter to move on. Or face the wrath of the on-screen down who looks decidedly miserable when an answer is found to be incorrect.
It's a nice little program. Marred a little by its simplicity and the apparent bug. Worth a look.
APPLE Education Troditlonol Silhouette 17 Bit, 2204 A value-for-money double pack here, containing two programs on the one disk, the other being fractions (see Junior section).
Silhouette tests shape recognition abilities, and its six levels are both colourful and intricate - a marked contrast from the simplistic, clunky feel of a lot of such software.
A number of silhouettes of shapes appear around the edge of the screen, with shapes appearing one by one in the middle, which you “grab" with a realistic-looking, mouse-controlled hand and put into the correct holes.
TjHETjTm It's rather like shape puzzles for infants, but this version is timed, with 60 seconds being allowed on each level (the levels get progressively more difficult), it's simple but well written and attradive.
.,, Into their silhouettes Education is a broad concept.
Limiting a feature such as this to looking at programs designed to teach younger children only - the kind most people think of when education is mentioned - would be to rob the concept of its true meaning. For education is not ageist.
So in this feature. I've looked at some Of the better programs on the market for all ages, and divided them into three groups: Infant, for pre-secondary school children; Junior, for those up to and including GCSE candidates; and Adult - training and tutorial programs for hobbies and skills.
All the disks featured here share one thing in common; they are not commercial. They have been written by and large by enthusiasts - parents with children of their own or schoolteachers with first-hand experience of those at whom they are aiming the programs.
Often the children themselves are responsible for some excellent stuff; computer literacy is being learned earlier and earlier by the youngsters of today, to the point where many are writing their own programs to teach themselves.
The programs reviewed are either free or "shareware", which means you pay the author a nominal fee - stated in the on-disk documentation, normally - should you find his or her work useful. At a time when many are complaining that free education is becoming paid-for training, here are a group of programmers who are involved in the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake. They deserve our support... SOFTWARE!

Iumi mode iImple Fractions 17 Bit, 2204 Fractions is an involved but clear and well written program aimed, presumably, at GCSE students. The Help option details clearly and diagra- matically what fractions are. Explaining such mathematic obscurities as dividends and divisors, and the program itself allows exercises on addition, multiplication and division, as well as fraction simplification and a full score chart It uses the annoying Amiga voice synthesiser again, but you can turn it off (or turn the volume down) and you're left with a well-written, clear, involved and useful program that
teaches one of the stickier sides of maths with style and confidence.
Monarchs 17 Bit, CLE16 A B One of a series documenting the history of England, these two disks actually mm run independently - the first contains royalty information covering the wm Saxons, Normans, Piantagenets, Stuarts and Tudors, while the second con- E3 cerns itself with the HoUse of Windsor and the complete line of accession. [ Selecting a period produces a pageful of text with a scroll bar; daunting for P J some, maybe, but the medicine is sweetened by a number of additional pi screens, containing coats of arms, pictures of the kings and queens in ques- ¦¦¦ tion, and the judicious use of
well-chosen sound effects. The text is very well written and interesting.
The problem with trying to bring history alive is that it feels very far away to the virgin student - teachers and teaching aids need to make it 'come alive", to emphasise the human angle and to instil the continuous timeline into the student's mind.

Urn ?A3 *61 VI* UJ 4 royal family tree While basically digitising a book doesn’t do this, it does allow a greater degree of control over what is read looked at and in what order, meaning that the child can follow a line of interest much more easily than grappling with a conventional index.
I used to have a kings and queens wallcharl on the back of my wardrobe door; this is. I suppose, the wallchart for the older child of the 1990s. A useful little multimedia package.
Colour the squares to make the puttcm on the right the sonic as the uuc uii ttic left Pattern recognition.
Let’s Learn v I. I 17 Bit, CLE11 Aimed at five fo seven-year-olds, this program is gloriously simple to use. Thanks to its reliance for all input on the left-hand mouse button; no keyboard, no remembering to hit Return, no complex interlacing.
It's a large and comprehensive package. Modules include Maths, which covers simple sums, and Tunes, which presents a keyboard that lights up as the computer plays a tune, encouraging the child to learn how to play it by clicking on the keys, There are 17 pieces of music on the disk, so it would take a new Mozart to speed quickly through this lot.
Moving on. Codes involves the child "decoding'' a series of words, based upon the age- old code of A=1, B=2 and so on up to Z=26. While Opposites invites the child to enter the opposite of a word displayed on-screen, an example being "Good" where the child has to enter “Bad" The most interesting part of this program for me was Squares, which presents two grids on the screen. One contains an assortment of coloured squares, the other is blank for the Child to fill in a copy of the first gnd, using an easy to use. Point-and-click Dpaint-style interlace. It teaches spatial relationship, apparently
- shapes to you and me All but one of the subjects have five
levels. If the child does well enough (three out of five) a
simple animated farmyard scene, with an animal added each time,
is displayed, and the program moves to the next level. Finish
all five and you get a “grand finale" - exciting stuff.
The package is clear and simple, contains some nice pieces of music, effects and animation, but shines for the reason mentioned at the beginning of this review - easy mouse entry which won't cause confusion like the keyboard frequently can. You can even enter text, via an on-screen alphabet.
OR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT I TASSUX I WATERWORKS COTTAGE
- AIXSGATE LANE. JARVIS BROOK AST SUSSEX TN6 3HZ Pictures and
Letters 17 Bit, 2226 After entering your name (the computer
speaks to you - unfortunately - in the ever-popular Amiga
synthesis speech) and selecting keyboard or mouse control
you're presented with a representation of a simplified qwerty
keyboard.
Selecting any letter brings up a picture of an object which starts with that letter - u for umbrella, for instance - but the actual word is not displayed. So the child must know what an umbrella is already.
It gets curiouser and curiouser; the next section shows you the same keyboard - although for some inexplicable reason, the mouse cannot be used to select letters in this part - which plays a sample when you click on a letter.
The samples and letters are in no way connected - they're things like a stab of electric guitar, a water drop and so on - and the program invites you to 'remember where your favourite sounds are".
What's strange about it is that, apart from some basic computer-literacy. The program doesn't actually teach the child anything. There are no exercises, no testing, no progress reports; just clicking, watching and listening to digitised Amiga speech.
Half-baked and clumsily programmed, this would nevertheless keep a youngster occupied for a while, but it’s hard to see much value in it beyond that.
The Little Traveller ¦ SO FT W A R E 17 Bit, 2451 After a rather convoluted loading period, this program presents a map of the world, with continents ghosted into boxes for selection.
Not surprisingly, clicking on a continent gives a sub-section - for instance, clicking on the box surrounding North America allows you to choose from the USA as a whole, east and west USA, Canada... or a map of the whole lot.
The maps would benefit from an interlaced monitor as the program switches resolutions quite regularly.
Each sub-section contains a description of the area, vital statistics such as area and population, travel information, airports and trivia. There are comprehensive menu options, providing information on currency rates, holidays, ferries and so on.
Obviously good for geography students, this would fascinate any child who's discovered the joys of browsing through an atlas - and come to that, it would help any adult blighted by trying to decide where to go for this year's holiday!
Morse Code Tutor v2.2 D*ja Vu. L 101 Many people still find a vital need for Morse Code. Yachtsmen, ama- teur radio enthusiasts, phonetics students - all have a use for dots and dashes even in the days of ultra-modern sound and vision communications. 3 This program's highly comprehensive features include control 43.
Over the pitch, speed and volume of your code, the ability to select 5 which combinations of letters you wish to be tested on, and full reporting of your progress.
Preferred program configurations can be set and saved so that the program always boots exactly how you like it. And these files can be individualised. So a group of people could all learn at their own pace, with the computer keeping track of each of them. A successful and original idea.
Touch Typing Tutor CLR CLU03 Secretaries do it on demand, writers do it through the night. I do it clumsily and without much finesse. I'm talking about touch typing, of course, that bane of the journalist s profession. Oh, for the ability to input information without following my fingers on the keyboard with the eyes of a hawk. 4 1 2 3 For those bent on self-improvement in this area, this tutor is one of 5 the best I've seen. While it's not quite Mavis Beacon (the world's most popular typing tutor) it doesn't cost anywhere near as much, and is almost as useful, if not as flashy.
Clearly and colourfully presented, the tutor has comprehensive menu support, with 19 different exercises to load and master. There are error statistics, the ability to toggle key ‘clicking through the monitor (helpful at first to assure you that you've pressed a key - though not necessarily the right one!), and automatic word highlighting.
Far cheaper than custom typing tutor hardware or the other Amiga software equivalents, this program is both a novel use of the machine and a successfully implemented practical tool for the budding typist.
The History Book Asgard PD Another of the multimedia-style packages showing just how much a computer can bring to life a lost or mundane subject for an older child.
This time it’s to the Second World War. And another Hyperbook-created disk which documents, in all their terrible details, the horrors of wartime.
The usual maps, explanatory text and curiosities are there (I for one had never seen the apparently famous picture ot Hitler just before he died), as well as hard facts, including grisly details of the casualties in the bombings and battles featured As is normal in such programs, topics, keywords and other associated information are all linked, so there is the choice of letting the program guide you logically through itself - or rather, letting your mind instruct the program which path to follow through its database.
The ability to print out information is a godsend too (ever tried typing and reading off-screen at the same time?) And barring slow disk accesses, this is a particularly painless .way to familiarise oneself With a very important period in Europe's history. .
It's the best background reading I've ever done.

Chess Helper pathfinder pd An original and ambitious disk containing demos of a number of chess programs, as well as the part which concerns us - the Chess Tutor.
This contains a brief description of the rules of the game, then a 3 sequence of positions from which you are encouraged to work out 4 the best possible move.
The positions reflect those likely to be found in the real game, and as the author is an Australian player of some repute, you can trust that computer-generated randomness is not the order of the day here!
A time limit can be selected, from a five-minute blitz to a five-hour marathon. There are checkmate tests and Other questions and puzzles covering most aspects of the game.
All in all, this disk presents a real chance for the beginner or the chess fanatic to learn a great deal easily and cheaply from an accomplished player.

Amount of disk space used by all your files, SO you are unlikely lo notice any difference in that department. The purpose of an optimiser is to speed up fragmented drives by reorganising them so that they are stored in contiguous chunks, thereby improving efficiency.
If you want lo increase the amount of free space, one way is to delete some of your files - you might like to copy Ihem across to floppy first though!
Alternatively, you could invest in a cruncher (file compressor) which will reduce file sizes. These are available both in the public domain and commercially, the most widely used being PaperPacker.
SAY again!
1 read with amazement your reply to A Clitherow of North Devon that Commodore have left the speech facility off the WB3.0 machines. I am not an expert but 1 was convinced that you were wrong, so I delved into the WB1.3 disk and discovered the answer.
You need to copy: devs narrator.device libs translator.library utilitm uy utilities say.info When 1 open SAY it works perfectly. I do agree with you on one point though - it's not much good. My old BBC was much better.
Lohn D Westwood, Winchester You are quite right lohn, speech is possible on WB3 machines, it is just a matter of setting up the system correctly. However, an earlier version of Workbench is required, so you will need to own two machines to do it legally - otherwise copyright will be breached.
If you boot from the p3 Workbench disk and type in the following AmigaDOS commands you will be able to access the speak: device AMIGA COMPUTING ADVICE SERVICE Monitors, broken disk drives and poorly power supplies tax our experts in the definitive Amiga technical clinic "sorry w'c don't know, never tried it"- The drive isn't partitioned, as there was no Ashcom 210 wotsit I've got this hard disk drive thingy, bought it from Ashcom a few months back and it works great. But it's getting on for quite full now so that's about 180Mb (210 model) and I would like to do a tidy up of the files etc. The
only thing is the optimiser reorganiser programs I have are public domain and neither of them work. So 1 would be silly to buy a commercial program at great expense only to find out it didn't work either.
I did telephone Ashcom and they said setup software with it when it arrived, so 1 just charged on and used it as a big floppy.
I've tried Reorg by H.Kruse and HD optimiser from Valley PD, but no good.
George Bryson Perth When disk space is limited the operating system will split a file in several chunks and write ihem wherever space is amiable- If this happens lo lots of files there will be a noticeable decrease in system performance and the disk is said to be fragmented.
Disk oplimisers will not greatly alter the Q While mucking around with a Nintendo joypad, I found a way to convert it to work with an Amiga. To convert an NES joypad you will need to be fairly competent with a solder* ing Iron and have a joystick (broken?) That you no longer need.
The conversion technique involves opening up the joypad and extracting the chip, then inserting wires from the joystick lead into various holes left by the chip and finally cutting some tracks. I expect that with a bit of jiggery-pokery you could get buttons A & B to do different things, thus having two Fire buttons!
Have fun!

Nintendo Joypad conversion Execute, Rebooting and KindWords I have three problems:
1. When using the Workbench
1. 3 Execute command to execute a script I get the message
“Execute failed. No K directive". I have tned Run executing
the script, which works, apart from one problem: the script
asks for input using the ask command, but when I run it does
not wait for input, but continues with the execution, Please
tell me how I can avoid the error.
2. When I boot up my machine, it occasionally loads in NTSC
instead of PAL.
Meaning that the bottom part of my screen is unused, which is very annoying. I cannot see any reason why it does this, nor connect its timing to anything else, Please tell me why this happens, and what I should do about it.
3. When using KindWords 3 and printing docs with graphics in
their headers, I sometimes get an error message when the
printer staris printing the graphics on the second time
through, on every page: ‘Printer error: Check paper and
cabling". I click retry and it carries on as normal until the
next page. Why does this happen and is there an easy way to
avoid it?
Michael Ricketts, Cheltenham f • The problem does not lie with either the execute or run com- EftJ mands. It is to do with your AmigaDOS script or the way in which you are calling it. Assuming that you do not want to pass parameters to your script, the syntax that you should be using is: execute flltniat where filename ts replaced by the name of your script. To pass parameters, you need to know what are expected If it is a script that you have written the parameters should be specified (on the first line) using the .KEY command.
2. There are two ways to reboot your Amiga: you can either switch
it off for 30 seconds or press Ctri and the two Amiga keys
(one at each end of the spacebar) all at the same time. If you
reset too quickly the machine does not always reset prop- edy
and can result in an NTSC display instead a PAL one. Also,
some games automatically set up an NTSC display so that they
win run on both NTSC (American) and PAL (European) machines.
3. When the printer nms out of paper it sends a message to the
Operating System. A copy of this is sent to KindWords which
responds with its own message, displayed as a requester.
Some packages allow you to specify the length of a page. If this is longer than the actual page length the system will receive an unexpected paper-out message. The solution is to adjust the page length from within KindWords, or from Workbench via the preferences editor, to match the physical page length.

AMIGA COMPUTING ADVICE SERVICE Stereo Master Fancying a game of Cribbage I am writing to find out the programmer of a game of Cribbage which appeared on the disk which was given away with the magazine in November 1990. Or could you tell me o! Any PD library to which it was sold?
This game was one of the best I have seen. Some time before last Christmas my Amiga developed a severe virus which put two or three disks out of operation I would be grateful for your help as I need to buy this game S Woolen. Stowmarket Unfonunately. Amiga Computing doesn't keep disks that date that far back and we don’t know the programmer's details. If there was an associated document you might still be able to find out.
Failing that, try writing to large PD companies - someone is bounO to have a copy of the game that you need or a similar cribbage program.
1 would like to ask for your help on a few problems 1 am having. The first is that the manual I received with the module reads; COPT FO:St»r(olliitirl? DM0: COPT ftfO:Raster»eao«? OHO: COPT HqiTiTlKCREEH pHQ; COPT DFO:fONT$ SNFONT.FONTI? FONTS: ALL On typing the first two commands everything seems OK, but when I did the title- screen command I received a "bad arguments” message so I added a hash and a question mark as I noticed that they were missing.
This time I got all the way to the end, but when I booted up from my hard drive I received a message "Stereo Master requires SMFONT to operate" although the shell window had told me that the SMFONT had been copied.
I have phoned Microdeal about this and was told that 1 will have to put the file into the fonts drawer, but that he could not tell me how to do this. Please can you - I'm not too clever with the Shell window.
Also, can you tell me how to create a startup-sequence in the ED window, as I want to be able to put pictures or small anims with sound, and reading the manual I assume I have to do this.
Which ACA?
I would like to upgrade the Amiga 500 to either an A1200 or A4000. Plus a laptop computer that could “talk' to the main computer.
At present I do a lot of DTP. Wordprocessmg and have a large database (Prodata). I also use a spreadsheet quite extensively.
Now to the question. Do I go for an A1200 or an A4000? You see. What puts me off mostly is the lack of a SCSI-2 interface, which means transferring all the files from my A590 to an IDE hard drive. Is this going to be easy?
Do I hang on until the end of the year and go for an A4000. When the price might have dropped? I rather like the idea of having a computer that is hardware upgradable, but on the other hand £2,200 is a lot of shekels to shell out in one go!
I have a lot of games and almost as much serious software - would they be compatible on the 1200 4000? Could I use my modem on the new machine?
S F Mallion, Hove Transferring your files would involve backing them up to floppy then restoring them to the IDE drive on your new machine. Alternatively, you could buy the mid-range A4000 030, add a controller to your existing drive unit and plug it into a Zorro slot. The latter option would also leave scope for furlher add-ons.
As far as games are concerned, you may experience problems with older games that did not follow Commodore's programming guidelines, Having said that, the AGA machines have boot options that allow emulation of original and enhanced graphics chips that can be used to solve incompatibility problems.
Finally, you should be able to use your modem on the new machines.
T C Cray, Kent By the sound Of things you also mistyped the last installation command and copied the fonts to the wrong destination. Try that line again, making sure that you type it irt exactly as it tS printed in the manual, including the colon immediately after the S in FONTS.
To create the startup-sequence described in the manual you must first load ed and tell it ii'hat file you toant to create edit. For example: to dfO:startup-sequence When it has loaded, type in this line: Histerleao Sdtrt the save option from the menubar then quit. You need to copy your picture and sequence files to the demo disk: copy aypiccy to dfO:flist«rPit copy lystoutnct to dfO:F1*sterStq where mypiccy is the name of an IFF picture created with Dpoint (or whatever) and rnyse- quence is the name of your sequence. You also iteed to copy the MasterDt'nio program to the demo disk: copy
RutcrDtio to dfO: Finally, you need to use the install command so that Ilk' Amiga will recognise that it is a System disk: instill dfO: Conner drive I have just purchased an Amiga 1200, and also an 84Mb Conner hard drive (revision 2,37). The problem is I can't seem to install anything successfully on it.
I used Install 3.0 and the A1200 reorganises the drive OK. I also tried to install VVB3 on it with the Install WB3 utility, but it only got as far as 12 per cent and the HD light just stayed on forever.
Nothing else was loaded from floppy to the HD (I was installing it to the Workbench partition that was created with the install disks HDSetup utility). Anyway there were a few things that had been installed - one was the clock utility - but Hard drive hitch a Sometime ago I purchased an Omega Bernouilli hard drive from a company called Burocare who now seem to have ceased trading. I wish to obtain a replacement cartridge for it. Would you know of a supplier and one who might also repair the drive in case of faults?
Des PriC6. PontypMl A Unfortunately, we don't know of any companies that could help you out. Perhaps one of our readers may be able to assist - watch this space.
Nothing else worked.
I also tned to format the partitions from the pull-down menus on WB3 but it would not format past cylinder 2 on my j Workbench partition and cylinder 256 on my work partition -1 just get a format failure and then I am left with two icons with ????.
When 1 tried HDSetup it gave me two partitions as described above and when I double-clicked on the icons they opened up the windows to tell me I had 8Mb for WB3 partition and 73Mb for my work partition.
So then I tried installing Wing Commander to my work partition. It installed the three disks to the HD but when I clicked on the Wing Commander icon I got the message: "Checksum Error ON Disk Block 95056" or some similar number. So it seems my partitions are full of bad blocks.
I also have QBTools and there is an option on it to count bad blocks and mark them out of service. Would this solve my problems? Also on QBTools is an option to repair bad drawers and files or directories and when I run that option it tells me I have serious root and checksum errors but it seems to fix them.
So please could you give me a guide to successfully installing my drive as I couldn't live if I have broken it (it hasn't had a had knock).
Youngy, Alloa The next thing to try is a low-level format. If that fails then you hare bought a defective drive. Rather than lop yourself, you should return it to i our supplier and ask them to replace it. Occasionally, brand new hardware i defectin' and. On this occasion, ur think you have drawn the short straw¦ You got problems too? Then drop a line to Amiga Computing Advice Service, Europa House, Adlington Park, Macclesfield SK10 4NP and we'll move heaven and earth to help in these columns. But sorry, we cannot reply personally, so save those SAEs.

CRUNCHERS - YiEU REVIEWED IN AVJKik COYfflTOO A NE tSSll £5.00 CO M PETITI O N Your favourite Amiga magazine and First Computer Centre bring you the thanee to win a Starjet SJ-48 bvbblejet mono printer with a 30- page auto sheet feeder The StarJet SJ-48 printer could be yours for a quick phone call which should cost you under £1 at cheap rate. To keep the cost of your call to a minimum try to avoid any background noise, which may necessitate the repetition of answers The Starjet SJ-48 non-impact printer is great value for money, giving crisp, high quality, quiet portable printing.
Using the latest ink jet technology the StarJet can produce draft print in economy mode, using less ink which is ideal for draft printing and the budget-conscious user, D This tightly-designed unit weighs just under two kilos and only needs the same desk space as an A4 folder so itfs easy to slip into a briefcase, In operation the SJ-48 is quiet and fairly quick, turning in a respectable 100 characters per second letter quality text.
Roughly translated, an A4 page of mixed text and graphics will print in around three minutes, though a page of text using one of the built-in printer fonts will appear in half this time. Print quality is superb for internal fonts and almost as good when using scalable fonts

9 Amiga Computing July 1993
• Two industry standard emulations including Epson LQ, IBM
ProPrinter
• Ni-Cad battery pack for mains free operation
• Two resident fonts; Roman and H Gothic - 10, 12, 15, 17, 20 cpi
pitch versions with two point sizes t 48 nozzles in high
quality mode
• Sealed easy-to-use front control panel
• 8in print area
• Friction feed for single sheets
• 8-bit parallel interface U PDATES ¦ This month we'll open with
yet another update to the immensely popular Imagine2 ray tracer
which has already benefited from Steve Worley's excellent
Understanding Imagine2 reference manual as well as the equally
impressive Essence range of mathematical textures.
This time however the update doesn't concern textures or literal explanation of the software. In fact the update in question is an object, or more accurately several variations on a theme.
With lmagine2's success, the bulletin boards are fit to burst with various creations that will cost you no more than the price of a phone call. With that in mind the release of a commercial collection may seem a little hopeful.
UNIQUE However it must be said that Cydeman is pretty unique. As the title suggests the collection isn't simply a set of inanimate objects but rather a selection of walking and running cycle objects in addition to a single-jointed static that can be given a new cycle of your own design.
Alternatively, the aforesaid static can be dissected or manoeuvred into any pose, and of course you also have the option to redesign any aspect of the figure ready for either commercial or private applications.
In addition, editing isn’t simply limited to the main structure of the figure. In fact, if say the head is isolated, much more subtle effects such as swivelling the eyes or manipulating the lips and jaw can enhance realism even more dramatically.
To drive the point home, the eyes - or in fact any part of the figure - can be mapped with a suitable image or texture to further enhance the illusion of reality.
As for the cycling variants, life couldn't be much easier as application is a simply matter of adding the object to the scene, applying the required path and rendering the anim. Thanks to the repeti- Art, and Amiga Updates continues its monthly round-up af the latest software updates and upgrades tive nature of a cycle object, our hero will never stop jogging or strolling through the scene, pausing only to be replaced by his modified or static counter when necessary.
Wordworth for Panasonic For would-be Wordworth investors, there's an added attraction for anyone thinking of investing in a printer at the same time as a WP.
Courtesy of a long-standing collaboration with Panasonic, the creators of Wordworth have just released a special version of the package which provides extended support for the entire Panasonic range with much improved support for the internal printer fonts over the entire range.
For more information on any OsfVCt of tile WorJuvrlJt range contact Digita International on: 0395 270273.
In the case of an animation, the overall effect is particularly effective as the already impressive figure can be clad in the textures and attributes of your choice while walking or running effortlessly across the scene.
As any ray-tracing enthusiast will tell you, modelling a believable head never mind a complete figure can be difficult enough, as a result even at G9.99 I'm sure Cydeman will enjoy reasonable sales - especially to those who need high impact imagery but don’t necessarily have the time to create it from scratch.
Keep you eyes open for endless corporate videos featuring the shiny men from Imagine2!

551888 Digita and Agfa After the emergence of WB2 and indeed
WB3. I was among the many who expected something of an explo
sion on the font front Alas the typographic big bang never
really happened - until now.
As regular readers will be aware, Agfa Compugraphic have already lit the fuse with the release of their AgfaType collections which consist of a starter pack of 12 fonts for around £30 with a follow-up video pack of 25 typefaces for a rather pricey £45.
Although of excellent quality, it must be said that when compared to the Digita Agfa collection the aforementioned duet do look a little extortionate.
The strange thing is that both sets share a very similar collection of fonts which often provide identical typefaces to those in the initial Agfa release.
However in the case of the new collection there are fairly dramatic differences in price and vanety.
Like the original series the new fonts come in several volumes - in this case three - entitled Pride and Presentation, The Classic Collection and finally The get it together Futura Bold II Microstyte Bold CG llodoni Bold Ga ram and Kursiv PriqNOT Deivu Bold Reference Library. In descending order the each volume provide 20, 25 and an impressive 50 fonts respectively, which as you’d expect build into an impressive library of 95 publishmg-quality typefaces.
The only drawback is, of course, cost - if bought as a job lot, they’d set you back a knee trembling £139.97. However the figure becomes a good deal less terrifying when broken down into its component parts of £29.99, £39.99 and £69.99 respectively. Although still not exactly cheap. I think youli agree there’s a fairly dramatic financial improvement on Agfa’s initial release.
Quite why Agfa have decided to combine with Digita to challenge their own product is a mystery, but if the end result is better value, who cares? With the dominance of Wordworth in the Digita product line an obvious worry would be compatibility with other products.
However any worries in that area are totally unfounded as the typefaces are generic and can be used with any package boasting support for the scalable font technology of WB2 and above.
Even so, Digita have made their mark on the collection via a special Digita Font Disk Creator which allows the user to build up their own font libranes specifically for use with Wordworth In addition to these fonts, Digita have also released a collection of clip art designed specifically for Wordworth which build into a library with titles including Cartoons.
More Cartoons, Sports and Nature and Geography and Transport, with each retailing at £14.99 a time.

VALLY PD BLITTERCHIPS CUFFE HOUSE. PRIMROSE KEIGHLEY. BD21 4NB 0535 667 469 0535 667 469 From the most serious utilities to the silliest of demos, it's all happening in the cut-price world of the public domain. Phil Morse reports back... PUBLIC SECTOR The PD concept Two main types of software are reviewed and available through these pages. PD. Or public domain, is software which the author has released for free. Mass copying is encouraged, and the author expects no return - this is wntten for the love of it! PD libraries will send you such stuff for very little more than the price of the disk
and The most artistically outstanding piece received this month was the latest Charly Cat animation, Charty Cat VI (Roberta Smith PD, AW107A B). Whal a series this one is turning out to be!
After Snow Joke, this latest animation sees Charly Cat - whose bite A “worse than a shark's", so the author informs us. Attending the cinema, with some incredibly gory bits. Apologising for his sick mind, the author has awarded it a RG classification!
It's all healthily tongue-in-cheek, however, and technically and artisticaly this animation is a must. Requiring 2Mb and preferring two disk drives, the movement is smooth and convincing, the characters as good as ever (they're Shareware follows the same concept, but asks you to send a fee - normally specified in the on-disk documentation - to the author, should you find the disk useful. It’s a kind of “try before you buy* concept, although the fee you finally pay is invariably far lower than the cost of just one piece of commercial software It is important that users send any fees
requested, not only for their own sakes (you'll probably receive a better version of the program, and regular updates) but also for the sake of the author, who’ll be unlikely to write further programs if he or she sees their software in use without having ever received a penny for it! It's a case of giving back what you take out. And without this attitude, shareware would die, to the detn- ment of us all, bcenceware. Beerware. Charityware and the countless others you'll no doubt come across are different only in what they ask you to send in return for the program, or where they ask you to send
it to. The concept is exactly the same as shareware.
HDM v1.1 CLR This is a multitasking menu system, aimed at users with Workbench l.3 and
2. 0 machines. Basically such a system allows the user to specify
a number of programs - say your favourite wordpro- cessor,
spreadsheet, a couple of games and a database plus your
favourite utilities - and set them up so that by simple
selection from a menu or pressing of a key, the program will
load automatically, possibly running concurrently with any
other program you're using at the same time (this is where the
multitasking bit comes in).
This system operates by means of a menu which you can have across the bottom of your Workbench screen, vertically down the side or in a shrunken form at the top. It can display ten possible program choices - selectable via function keys - and as many switchabie banks of ten programs as you have the memory for The usual wide selection of disks received this month has reflected the trend towards more useful and usable software as opposed to mindless vector demos and tame music disks, prompting a slight change in the format of these pages.
Replacing the Jukebox Jury and Dreams and Visions sections, which were dedicated to music and art demos respectively, are Music and Art Demos of the Month - the most outstanding disk in either category received since last issue gets a review.
Music means anything from Tchaikovsky to techno, and art encompasses slide shows, cartoon animations, still artwork and so on.
So there’s lots of scope to get those creative urges down on. Erm. Silicon, and send them to me at the usual address, So on with that bumper pile of non-demonstration software... (to "tell" HDM about 50 programs uses a mere 2.5k). This type of program is nothing new, of course, but HDM is particularly well thought-through and programmed, thus making it infinitely more useful than some efforts.
It is happy working in all screen modes, has keyboard short-cuts for just about everything and even comes with its own hard drive install program, although for some reason Workbench 2.0 owners still have to do a little bit manually to get it up and running. Neat.
Comic Clipart Highland PD, 593 Here's something that's nice to see - some quality clip art, which for those who are perplexed refers to pieces of artwork, usually small and simple, used to brighten up anything from company notepaper to newspaper and magazine articles.
The use of a little diagrammatic telephone instead of the abbreviation "Tel:" when giving a company phone number is a classic example of clip art making information easier to ingest.
This collection concentrates - as the title might suggest - on cartoons, with superheroes featuring highly. So if you're after Spiderman to brighten up your spreadsheet, the Human Torch (three versions!) For your letter headings, or Thor and Captain America for your new underground magazine, this is the place to look.
A quick peek at some of the artwork in Dpaint confirmed the quality of this nice little selection.
Batlog Simon Skeet Alan Carter Three individual and individualistic games on one disk, all written by the disk's compiler, and all warranting at least a quick peek, Batlog is a worthy lit¦ hi _ Wiwug Calling all PD libraries... ...and individuals with skill freebie and cheap software. Whether it's a great new utility you've written, a bazzing little arcade game that Gran comes around especially to play, or a left-field political satire animated to the strains of underground German techno music, I'd like to see it.
Just bung your submissions into a Jiffy bag with a note explaining what they are and how to use them, not forgetting to label your disks dearly too. And I'H guarantee to at least give them a look.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of submissions, many don’t get reviewed, but if I haven't got your disk, you can be absolutely sure that I won't review it!
The address is: Phil Morse, PD Submissions, Amiga Computing, Europa House.
Adlington Park, Macclesfield SK10 4NP rather curious but visually very pleasing target game.
Again utilising the mouse crosshair control method (this is the kind of game which would benefit greatly from a light the only non-PD bit of the animation, meaning the author claims copyright), and like Snow Joke, it contains good atmospheric sound effects too.
A wonderful addition to your collection, and if you haven't got the other five, order them at the same time.
After an unobtrusive but neat and stylish opening screen. The J Edgar Hoover (17 Bit) presents you with a menu from which you can choose to play one of three songs.
First up is RavEvil, which is a simple and somewhat typical computer-sounding tune containing nothing offensive or jarring in any way. But with nothing to really grab the attention either.
Shallow Bay. The next tune on the list, is a remake of New Order’s classic Blue Monday, and highly impressive it is too. It sounds nice, and this is an extra special achievement since it's built from the bottom up from fresh sounds, and still manages to sound like the original.
The final tune, Get the Rolls Royce, is a Thunderbirds remix which most defi- boredom low. Before you start, you get to choose - among other things - the inertia of your character and the number of lives you have, and then it's full-on to the game proper, which as well as the usually platformy bits, has great pinba 11-style bonus stages and lots of cutesy graphics.
Well worth the dosh.
Do you remember the electronic memory game Simon? The one shaped like a flying saucer with four coloured segments which flashed a sequence that you then had to copy? Well the picture on this page should remind you, and if it does you'll need no introduction to this computer version.
Retaining the flashing lights bleeping noises of the original, you use the mouse to "push" the segments in order. There's a strange feeling of satisfaction to be had when you're remembering 16 and 17- long sequences (well that's as good as it got for me, anyway) and the PCB-style backdrop to this computer version makes it look attractive as well as addictive. A blast from the past and no mistake.
Finally on this disk is Skeet, which is a gun) you have to shoot what I presume to be clay pigeons against a backdrop of fresh green fields, snowy mountains and blue winter skies.
Every now and then a couple of birds meander across the sky in the distance, but righteously you can't shoot these (I nitely does use samples - but don't worry, far from being a symptom of musical laziness, they are firmly in the "humorous sampled speech" department.
Musically it sounds like it's stuck somewhere between hardcore house and hardcore guitar grunge, and it's all the tried several times).
So if you're after a game that's off-beat as well as off the beaten track, then head for the idyllic mountain cairns of Skeet.
Wish I knew what they were doing shooting Up there, though.
?
Better for it. An interesting, original and most important of all, highly listenable number The whole disk is varied and well presented. With bags of enthusiasm and a more than adequate dose of talent, Good stuff!
Utilitarian utilities LSD Legal Tools 99 Roberta Smith, UT500 An incredible value compilation of utilities. Ranging from the useful and not so useful to some so bizarre that you'd imagine only about three people in the entire universe could ever find a use for them!
However, 18 utilities on one disk is great value for £1.50. and you'll no doubt find at least one of them useful.
Chopper is designed to split large files or blocks of data into bite-sized chunks, the obvious application being when backing up a hard drive, or maybe for importing information into the Amiga from a tape streamer or optical disk.
Simple and useful, although most hard drive owners will have acquired some kind of disk utilities package at some point which will probably have a more automated and user-friendly utility on it customised purely for that purpose.
PGC is a data encryption device for sending files securely between consent’ ing users. The application of such software in the United States has caused revealing and disturbing rumblings from JBC mmr p|-®m w E&ar mMftute n li the FBI. Paranoid that people will be able to send data which they have little hope of ever untangling and so reading.
Anyway, this is one of a later breed of encryption device, designed to allow a "key" code (to allow the other user to de- encrypt the file) to be sent across "unsecured channels" from the message sender. Ooh. Sounds like mystery and intrigue afoot to me! It also sounds totally unfathomable.
OuickGrab is the utility for me on this disk. A reliable, user-friendly, feature- packed frame grabber for 2 0 machines?
Yup. And about time too.
Totally PD. This grabber can save moving pictures, has up to a 99-second delay after activation (go for racing to your favourite bit in a game) and allows you to define the hotkey combination used to activate it.
You can even install it in your WBStartup folder, meaning that it will be perpetually activated. Definitely the one if you've been looking in vain for a way to consistently and reliably grab screens.
All in all. This is a crammed, well documented. No-nonsense disk of well written and useful, if at times pretty obscure, utilities. Worth a look.
?
Cycling Mileage Recorder 17 Bit, 2450 One can’t help letting one's suppressed cynicism break loose and take over sometimes, and I've got to admit that Cycling Mileage Recorder did just that to me. How in the world could anyone extract any use from such a program?
However, it's a mistake to judge a book by its cover, so just to get some evidence with which to slate this disk, I booted it up.
Well, it's not that bad really. It's a nicely presented program which allows you to enter lots of statistical information about how far and for how long you've cycled each day, presenting a number of overall statistics at the touch of a button about your cycling activities.
Ger to your safety.
Should you touch the edges of the playing area, your energy drains at an alarming rate, and so the game becomes a battle between speed and accuracy on the mouse.
An ambitious and well-presented cross between Tron and Light Cycles (sort of), this is mentally stimulating but in the end limited in the excitement stakes.
Hang on. I'm sorry, but I can't sec anyone past the junior stage of unques- tioning-enthusiasm-for*madcap-ideas extracting any use from this whatsoever.
A good example of a program that really, really didn't need to be written. Strange.
Funhouse Roberta Smith, SGA195 Entity Chris Swift A very nicely presented set of three programs, of which two are games and one is a demo. The first of the games is entitled Fnigma, and is a tile game based around varying shapes of board.
Your task is to unite simil- iarly coloured tiles, at which point they disappear. When you've cleared a whole level in this way, you get a more complex board to play on. It's simple, well realised and addictive!
Thundertron is - yes, you've guessed it - a version of the evergreen arcade "classic". I'm sorry but it's getting a bit This rather seminal arcade game is one of the more original I've seen in recent weeks. The presentation is all sophisticated sci-fi, Aliens-style, and the game sets its scene beautifully with a full description and pictures of all the aliens you're likely to encounter.
Although the playing area is a well- shrunken part of the screen, it's a very compelling idea comprising a crosshair controlled by the mouse which leaves tracer trails.
You use these to trap the blob-like aliens before they reach the edge of the screen, by which point they'll have become extra powerful and a graver dan- much- I got a disk the other day with five I versions of this damned game on it! Say no I more.

Ocean taste curly!
Ocean are once ogoin delving into a pocket of Quaker* for yet another entertaining and original puzzle arcade game One Step Beyond will hit fhe streets at the end of the Jvly, The gome finds Colin Curly, hero of the Quavers ods, playing his favourite computer gome while tucking into his equally favourite snack. As he pops the last Quaver into his mouth, Colin 'goes curly' and is suddenly sucked into his computer and digitised This is the cue for a puzzler that offers you, the gomes player, the chance to run about in a baffling, maze-filled universe. Exiling the machine rests on your ability to
manipulate Delays (hmm... }, Bounce Downs (eh?) And Ray Shutters (exsqueeze me!).
One Step Beyond combines amazing puzzles, adventure and a loveable character with 12 different platforms containing a total of 99 levels, each with its own wild personality.
Oceon reckon that this will prove to be one of the most addictive games of the year I'll believe it when I see it, but you never can tell... Everybody knows thot French software companies ore fontouS for moking completely weird and downright strange computer games ond lankhor are no exception.
The gome Block Sect is billed os the 'first French adventure game to take Small, but perfectly formed... ''‘ MicraMachines Codemasters are out and about on the Amiga once more with Micro Machines.
Micro Machines are, for those of you who don't know, mihioture cars, planes, boats and bikes which are replicas of the real vehicles and for some reason come in collections of five.
Because the vehicles ore in miniature the races take place on breokfast tobies and in the bath tub. So watch out for hazards such as rampant pieces of toast and particularly nasty bars of soap.
Codemasters proudly boast that MM is the most competitive racing gome ever devised and taking into account how many copies they have shifted on the Nintendo, I think I believe them, Sports cars, Formula One cars, power boats, tanks, dune buggies and helicopters are just some of the vehicles featured in Micro Machines.
There are 27 twisting, turning tracks ond there are animated presentation screens, superb music ond in-game sound FX. The price is yet to be confirmed, but the game will arrive later on in the Summer.

Following their announcement of o ground-breaking deol with DID, Ocean have signed Nik ond Mrs Fiend of group Alien Sex Fiend to compose, produce and develop the soundtrack far a gome colled Infemo, DIO'S first release.
The soundtrock is being specifically written for the CD-ROM versions of Infemo. Although other publishers developers hove co-operated with the music industry before, notably Tim Simenon Bomb he Bass) and Betty Boo with Renegode. It is believed this is this the first time that such on endeavour has been undertaken in terms of both writing o complete game souodtrack and transferring that sound track directly to CD audio, by any 'name' bond Listen very carefully... Alien Sex Fiend hove released 11 albums over the post decode ond hove o large and loyal cult following. Over the years they've
produced albums such as Here Cum Germs and Open Heod Surgery ond singles such as Smells like S"t and Mrs Fiend Goes To Outer Space What the soundtrack will turn out like is anyone's guess. I can see the future and I like it.
Music ond games ore becoming more closely linked. What can we expect next? Well my money's on the Monic Street Preachers to provide the soundtrock to Sonic 3 and Suede to secure o deal with Gremlin to do the music for Zool 5 (released 1996). You never know, stronger things have happened!

Please, don't get me wrong, f mnot moaning, It's just hat until recently I was he type of guy who'd trip through blossomed meodows, ond go around preoching love, peace and generally non-violent activities.
New look at me, hey've turned me into o child- eating, babe-butchering, wor-mongering manioc, But enough of my problems, let's see what'S on today's menu War in the Gulf is a tank sim from the same people who brought you he crword-winning Pacific Islands and Team Yankee. Now before you ai jump Tanks are not those outdated, large, lumbering pieces of metal. They' re no longer the Tony Adams of the military world. Not if he American Chiefs of Staff are to be believed. In fod, a large proportion of the success of the 1990 Gulf conflict was down te he armoured divisions.
This brings me rather neatly on to my second point This is not - os most of us hevght - based on he original flare up in he Midde East.
Insteod, we ore swept forward in time to 1995.
As always with his renowned hot spot here's trouble. Following a maelstrom of violence and political unrest, Iraq, led by Mr personality Soddam Hussein, decides to waltz bock into Kuwait. Is it me or have I experienced dejavu?
Well, here's no prizes for guessing whose job it is to take control of matters ond free Kuwait.
Funded by the extremely wealthy Emir, you and your mouse manipulate the destiny of Teom Kuwait.
Team Kuworf composes some of he latest hardware to grace the front drive of the US military, W 4 W J m Ever fancied getting tanked up and kickin' up your own desert storm? Well here's your chance te cause armoured* gedden in Empires' War in the Gulf ioduding the lehal M-1 Abrams main battle tank You take command of four tank units, simultaneous ly controlling a total of 16 vehicles.
Following some nice intro screens, he first task in hand is to set your forces an objective. Empire ore boasting 25 battle zones - so there's plenty to Being o campaign, the oction begins on one particular island and moves inland as you become more odept Now it's time to deploy your forces. This is where the first element of strotegy shows its face Obviously different vehicles have varying capabilities, but there's more to it than that. Money-bogs himself, the Emir of Kuwait, controls the purse strings, giving you pocket money to buy he hardware to do the job.
Sounds simple enough? Unfortunately he only coughs up on results and doesn't like it when you blast large holes in ancient monuments or other Kuwaiti treasures Next option at your disposal is whether or not to set artillery support. Having pondered that one Fthroygb, it’s on to the main gome screen. I should »lh have used he plurol there becouse the main Screen reaify consists of four; each one of he tank units occupies o quorter of he screen All of hese areas can be independently occessed by mouse-driven icons. So it's possible to view al of your units at the same time.
However, it's highly unlikely that you'll utilise his option too often, OS it's hard to determine what's going on and hd manoeuvre generally results in al of your tanks being ripped open like so many tins of sardines.

Mere's the camoge? The satiating ol pnmeval desires that we all lust lor2' Al right calm down, I'S talk about hat aspect ol Gulf now. The main battle sequences give us external views ol the Kuwaiti teroin seen from inside the tanks. Agoin it's down to mighty mouse to control everything You can practically carry out any oction that he real McCoy can, whether it be o simple turret rotation or use of the loser sights to increase your deodliness. Everything's there in reach of your sweaty palms In terms ol balislics, you've got more munitions to hand than Amie in Terminator 2. Your choices
vary from anti-tank missiles through to smoke grenades. Firing is simple enough, moving the a pas**!
Mouse off the control ponel onto the play area - os if by magic - changes the selector icon into a gun- sight.
The play area graphics are courtesy ol Empire's cward-wwining 3D technique. They mix bitmapped, arcode-sfyle effects and vector graphics with great results. The oction is lost paced and plenty happens.
This al odds to he realism which is generated The enemy ore extremely intelligent and snow no mercy when it comes to the crunch, Saddam’s Republican Guard being particularly ruthless The sound involved throughout is spartan but effective. But let's face it, when yott're crammed into q spoce the size of a Wing cabinet you can hardly hear much Whot really grabbed me about Empires' endeavours is he realism. It's not so much he vtwgj quality- which hos to be said is excellent - so much as he speed. The gome pkws of a'real-time'poce.
This gives the player little, "if no time to reod to surprise attacks. There're plenty ol occasions I sat here perplexed, pulling my hair out, watching my vehicles being decimated bv unseen foe.
The relative cunning of the Iraqi forces makes his an incredibly tough nut to crack, There's little point in sending your forces out willy-nilly. You have to have a strategy. This element of affairs odd to he overai oddictiveness of Wgr in he Gulf, I know he Gull conflict is a bit of a touchy subject in some areas. I also can't help feeling hat there's something a mite sod about he marketing strategy employed - riding on the bock of a wor to sell gomes, However, it's been done before, and no doubt ifl be done ogoin. So, moralising aport, it has to be said hat War in he Gulf is a quality
product. It will appeal to both action and strategy punters alike, and is tricky enough to render it boh compulsive and oddidive.
So if you're a budding stormin' Norman, his is definitely he game for you. Should keep he troops amused for months.

The other nice touch is that the expertise of the enemy pilots varies, from the finely-tuned killer instinct of Baron Richthofen through to the relative incompetence of Helmut von Spike.
From the side. This sounds a very simplistic system to employ for o strategy-based gome, but it's extremely effective and great fun trying to blast the brotwunt off the Baron.
The graphics ore nothing outstanding for the Amiga, but are presented well enough. The animation technique is pretty clever though, wilh the ticol philosophies vary - of your choice.
Having chosen the campaign that tickles your fancy, you are presented with the main gome screen. This is represented using on overiiead view of the battlefield.
You control an icon which when dragged to the edge of the screen scrolls the gome through six screens, enables you to view ony feature relevant to the game, as well as plotting the flights d your flimm nimsy Domoers.
So the first thing you're going to want to do is to fetch your Handley-Poge from the hangar Ortd get yourself airborne. This is o simple enough task
- just click on one of your own airfields ond a menu prompts you
to select pilots and aircraft.
The next priority is to set your flight orders.
These include such choices as altitude, flight formation and of course the target. It all sounds easy enough and in terms of operation it is; the complications that arise are purely tactical.
For example, it's oh-so-eosy to set your altitude incorrectly, then come time for the wild blue yonder and your brave boys plough into the side d the Alps.
So having selected which part of the front you hove designs on dedmoting, it's over lo your AMIGA, which automatically handles all of the action unless you wish to intervene and decide your pilot's fate.
This is redly where the game transcends from one genre to another. Having so far being totally slrotegy-based with little action, the dag fighting ond bombing sequences are definitely in the orcode vein.
Dog fighting over the skies of France is viewed Do you remember fhe day? When men were men? The doys when things were done properly? The days when Pinky might leon over to good old Johnny, tokc o sip on h» G & T, glance out of the NAAFI window ond casually remark:
* 1 say Johnny old sport, isn't that fhe bally Hun I can see
(lifting towards our airspace? Damned impertinent blighters!
Better lake the old kite up and show that Baron choppie a few manners!* Well I'd be highly surprised if any of you do.
But I'm sure there are quite a few of yw who wouldn't mind trying your hand at aerial frolics in a new strategy game.
The gome's tactical roots are lifted from the work of a Chinese geezer called Sun Tzu, who some 2,500 yean ogo wrote o book which even nqw ts regarded os one of the best lexis on military tactics. Not that there's ony need to get yourself a copy, as War in the Skies comes equipped with a manual that's in-depth, lo say the least.
Anyway, on with the game. You're in charge of an airforce full of First World War bombers ond fighters. The net result is strategic air conflict, with your successes and failures having an effect on the ensuing land battles. The idtimate objective is to push back the enemy troops by bombarding their bock-up supply lines.
There are a wide variety of options to select from, whether it be a simple training exercise or some extremely complex conflict from World War I. In fact, the programmers hove thrown in a “time tunnel" option enabling you to pit your wits against the French at Agincourt and a whole host of other foes from the vortex of time.
You can also select who you are going to pit your wits against, as the game contains an option which enables you to fight a general • whose toe- Fasten your seatbelts and settle down, Microprose are back again with more tally-ho, chocks away strategy arcade action ml-1.1,- IHLlto Dependent upon the outcome of the fracas with your fighters, the next orcode sequence puts you in control of the reor gunner on your bomber, fending off those pesky Fokkers.
This works using the same side view os dog fighting and to oil intents ond purposes bos the some feel to it, the only difference being thot your bomber is rather more clumsy and vulnerable.
Assuming you've done well enough to fight off the relentless enemy triplanes then it's bombs away. In this sub-game you are presented with the bombardier's view looking down at terra firma through your bomb-sight.
This aspect of the action is very tough. Not only ore circumstances mode difficult by cloud and wind, but also ground-bosed anti-aircraft weapons are perpetually peppering your balsa wood bombers.
Motters are made worse by the foct that your bombs have a sickening tendency to drift - in my case normally away from the target - making it tough if not impossible to successfully destroy enemy installations.
In most cases during a campaign, if success is what you'd like to taste, it's probably better to let the computer take charge of your destiny.
However, it's o sweet feeling when you fill the opposition with bulets from Blighty and see them nose-dive down intp np man's land, Overall, War in the Skies is rather successful, well thought-out strategy gome. The enemy don't lie down easily, they react with guile and aggression, making for difficult, yet oddictively compulsive war gaming. This is nicety transposed by the arcade section* which ore, quite frankly, spiffing good fun!
The downside of oil this - like most good things there has to be one - is that the sound is rather limited and a little puny. But far annoying is the number of disk swaps one is subjected to during loading.
That aside, War in the Skies is a fine foray into aerial strategy and combat. For all would-be tacticians out there it's sure to be a winner, but there's plenty enough within the game to keep us lesser mortals, who like blasting things into small pieces, quite satiated, The Ancient Art ot Wor in the Skies is o successful moulding of two nocmoliy separate genres.

Multiplication: Thing you did in maths. With this spell you can clone yourself and thus gang up on particularly difficult enemies, Circular mw: You can buy them from B&Q. Once thrown it follows the contours of the scenery and will eliminate everything in its way.
Lightning: A highly powerful spell that will destroy everything on the screen. Uses up a lot of energy, so use it sparingly.
Metal meltei A weapon with little power which nevertheless allows you to destroy all metal doors. Handy if you're stuck in a roam with surrounding metal doors I suppose, Magk bridge; A spell with no power at all, but very useful as it allows you to build a temporary bridge.
This is the only spell you possess at the beginning of the game. It never runs out and has ability to turn enemies into frogs.
Spell of medium power only, still it does provide you with straight, rapid fire.
Spell of medium power, fires into the air and bums fhe ground upon landing. Would come in handy if you ever decided to go to a riot.
Bowling ball: A powerful, but slow spell. Can be used to neu- tralise strong enemies and also handy for playing ten pin bowling.
Magic staircase: Allows you to create steps. You can thus grab an useful object or find a raised exit. Steps disappear after a few seconds.
Big black thing that goes booml Weapon of medium strength, but highly important in the game. It will help you to reach places that at first seem totally inaccessible.

Well, you get the general idea of what it's about - it would have taken much longer to explain it oil, and in any case you've heard it ol before Zmira has to discover ond conquer four worlds
- the forest, the fields, the city and ultimately the hounted
cosrfe. The little, and dare I say it cute, witch must bottle

Magic Book and the secret which oikjws Zmiro to pass from one
world to the next, ond tfius opproock ike sorcerer's castle.
Zmiro is o beginner when it comes to spells, but dotted throughout ike worlds are q fqir number of spells which wben collected can be stored in the Book of Spells. The 'stone' spell is unlimited and is one you start the game with.
When you use il on an enemy they, in true witch tradition, change into a slimy frog. Zmiro may change spells as often as she likes, but unfortunately some are limited.
What every decent witch needs is a broomstick; ond our heroine is no exception. Ploced around various ports of each level is a broomstick icon which when picked vp can be used to yeaf effect.
This is a neat little idea which stops the aarne play becoming too similar. The broomstick only lasts for a limited time, but there ore plenty of Icons to be found.
That's all there is to the gome, because it is only a plalformer after oil, but I suppose you wont to know whot I think of this cutesy 'play till you puke* platform odventure?
Mma Initiolfy Super Cauldron didn't impress. The scrolling was fairly jerky ond horrible and it seemed incredibly difficult for a platform game.
Then after playing it far a couple of hours things did improve.
I started to find secret underground levels and then I wos wel away. Cute or not, it has a certain oddictive quality which left me at the end wanting yet another go.
The graphics are quite nice, but don't look different from those in any other cutesy offering. Super Cauldron has plenty of funny quirks and some of the gameplay could hove benefited from a little more time spent on it. There are times when it gels really frustrating.
The sound leaves a little to be desired The tune is OK - ond the sound effects are not bod, but you cannot turn off the music.
Titos hove come up with a couple of crackers - look at Blues Brothers ond Titus the Fox - but Super Cauldron is just o fairly standard cutesy plotformer and isn't going to set the gomes world alight. If you like this sort of thing then I'd recommend il, but personally rd chose Zool orSuperfrog.

Oh! No. Th* man from Barrett Howes c oos psychotic after losing his job touch pope* ond start Ihe fireworks.
Gunship moves os quickly and os smoothly os any flight sim I hove yet to see on fhe AMIGA, This has not been ochieved ot the cost of detail either.
The terrain is both interesting ond varied. It's not unlikely for you to screech post billboards or even to harass a resting cornel - that's on the Chester Zoo mission by the way!
The whole smoothness and variety of the landscape is thanks to a new system which generates terrain with undulations. All I con say is seeing is believing!
In terms of action, there's more than enough.
Everything is controlled in your bird, by State-of- the art HUD controls. It's a good job because when ifs tin-hot time, you've reolly got a job on your bands. The enemy croft ore plentiful and gles thot allow you to alter the majority of features likely to affect flight.
Once in the cockpit it's hord not to notice fhe quality of the graphics. Both the internal and external views look very effective. But, how does she handle? That's the burning question!
Now, I'm not going to bore you with the aeronautics of vertical flight. This is because, quite frankly I haven't got a bloody clue. All I do know is thot the first element of chopper control is fhe collective.
This refers to the ongie of attack odopted by the rotors; the steeper the blade angle, the greater the lift. On Gunship, this aspect is dealt with via the keyboord. The second part of the equation is the cyclic whkh behoves exactly like, ond is controlled by the joystick.
Finally, there's the anti-torque rotor which ogain is keyboard operated. It sounds foirfy complicated - thafs because it is. But, as I said, the manual is in-depth and where I stole all the above info from.
Once you've mastered the control system, which is quite user friendly, if s time to light the Choppers lo tickle your fancy!
AH-64A Apathc Cunship. Finest attack helicopter in the air.

The variety of assailants is also amazing. So whether if1 s a HIND gunship or a T-72 bottle tank, just get on hii six, target your Hellfires ond watch his pinko commy ass fry.
The great thing is, you con watch said commy's ass fry from loods of angles. For example, you can watch the action from the missile you've just launched or even from the enemy's perspective.
The sonks too ore excellent, The choppers really Sound as though they chop. The explosions are really beefy and the sampled speech from your co-pilot highly convincing.
As if I hadn't song Gunship1 s praises enough, come here, there's more! The number of missions at your disposal is vast, Also, os you progress in rank, the more sophisticated helicopters become yours for the taking.
Plus, at the higher ranks you become eligible for wing-men and full blown compoign options.
Reolly I haven't the space to soy everything I want to about this monster piece of software. I predict Gunship 2000 will become the god of the simulator world. It's on absolutely awesome, most excellent, cracker of a game. I heartily recommend that everyone rush out and buy the definitive helicopter simulator now.
Anyway, I'm off to take to the skies once more. Blue Thunder eat your heart out!

Overall my main gripe is the totol lock of response from the control system.
When using the joystick, especially in the oulo scrolling levels, absolute dexterity is imperative and this just doesn't happen. This feeling of lock control over your destiny has a serious effect on the addiction of this gome.
It becomes, to be fronlc, bloody frustrating, and I ended up switching off to watch my colleoguO pick KiS nose To sum up, Beavers is fairly cute, cuddy and in places quite entertaining fun. But once you've set eyes on all the graphic styles, messed around in the water and generally beavered about, if s all pretty repetitive stuff.

So right now what I'm not going to do is give you a full-blown lecture on the ups ond downs of this particular genre, ond how for every classic Eke Zool ond Putty there's a level guordion full of rubbish Ah! Did I lecture you? Oh well! On with the'plot'. .
According to the loading screens, Jethro has a furry female friend who hos captured die attention of the game's bod ass. In this cose it's o gun-toting rabbit, who does the dirty and kidnaps Jethro's piece of 'beaver* Now what the hell this rabbit wants with her I honestly con't imagine. If I remember the birds and bees well enough, rabbits get together with other little bunnies, not strapping great log-eating beavers Bui whatever turns you on.
I suppose you've guessed it by now anywOy, but rather than going round to said rabbit’s hutch ond shoving your carrot, (that's gur'to enough... Ed) you hove to bounce and spin your woy through 20-odd levels of platform pranks There are four different types of screen that go together to comprise the action. They vary between underwater sections to extremely slippery snowy levels. But by for die hardest ore the outo- scrolling sections where the slightest hesitation with the joystick results in the untimely demise of our hero.
Of course there ore other aspects to the game We all know the bonus hoops in the Sonic gomes. Well sure enough Beavers follows suit completely. The only difference is that it's starfish rather than hoops that guarantee points for prizes.
Apart from thal there is the usual variety of frustrating traps, puzzles and nasties. On the svb- of nasties, every sixth level sports an extremely rge nosty who pops up to hinder your progress Overall there isn't a great deal I con comment on regarding the gameplcry. It's all fairly straightforward with plenty of jumping around, flipping the baddies with ygyr toil, pressing the odd switch here ond there to operate lifts and seorchmg for Davy Crockett hats (don't osk me why) to complete the stage The graphics are what I can only describe os cuddly ond ore reasonably well animated.

The puzzle game has always been a firm favourite with gamers Not all have
brilliant graphics ond sound, but they more than make up for it in the playability and addiction deportments Tetris, Columns and Lemmings are oil classic examples of what a puzzler should be like.
Mot makes them so attractive2 Why do people pul themselves through sheer puzzle hell?
Satisfaction is one of the answers. If you complete 0 level on Lemmings which no-one else you know can do. You get a really worm glow Beating your high-score on Tetris is o personal achievement - and achieving 4ungs is an important part of life Some may conquer mountains, others save a human life, However, when you get to heaven and God asks you what you have ochieved, at least you can say that you completed the Mayhem level on Lemmings After releasing the James Pond series ol games Millenium ore about to enter the puzzle games fray. I say 'fray* odvis- edfy because if you moke a good
puzzler it is adored by everyone. Produce a bad one and you're guoronteed to sell zikh.
Morph is, thankfully, one of ta good ones and I have a sneoky suspicion thot it could well chah trons. Then a voice spoke up as if from nowhere. It wos Morph, who colmfy explained his predicament te the Prof. 'I can't regain my body, but I can pull my molecules closer together and change my shape.
'I'll ao and find the missing parts and you can repair the mochine ond bring me back!' Chubby people are always optimistic, aren't they2 Morph con now transform himself into four different substance - gas, liquid, flexible and solid - all of which ore explained in (hot little panel dow there, so before you continue I suggest you read it.
The object of the gome is for Morph to reassemble the teleporter enabling him to return to (he form of a small boy.
To achieve this, he hos to collect each ol the mochine’s many pieces, represented in the form of The heaviest state for Morph to be in. He is limited to moving lib a cannonball. However this does make him impervious to sharp objects and dve to his heavy weight he can smash through wolk He will sink in any liquid.
Morph in this state becomes very rubbery and bouncy just like a beach ball This enables him to bounce vertically and across gaps ond float ocross water. However, sharp spikes, brambles, broken gloss and metal comers will burst him.
Morph gets into some altered states Gas Solid lenge Lemmings for that cult puzzle status.
It concerns, not Tony Hart's plasticine friend, but a fat little boy called Morris Rolph, or Morph os he is known to his friends. He unfortunately has a crockpot uncle called Professor Krackenpof. The Professor must hove been meddling with drugs because he has built a teleport machine.
Morph, being slightly chubby, thought that this mochine would be helpful - he could ploy lob of pranks and get into football matches for free, os well as escape from school early.
Being a very eager child, Morph decided thot he wanted a go on it right away. Unluckily for him, it hadn't been tested on humans, and when the lever to start the machine was accidentally moved Morph disappeared leaving behind a trail of swirling stars.
A thunderstorm brewing thot fateful night, and as Professor Krakenpot went to turn the mochine off o boh of lightning tore through the roof ond blew it up, scattering its components around the surrounding countryside, All that remained of Morph wos o cloud of twinkling atoms ond elecThe puzzle game of the year? Check out this substance-changing frolic from Millenium Now Morph con seep through small holes, extinguish fires ond squeeze around the s»des of lifts. He con be killed by drains and dissolve in any other liquid. Keep an eye open for streams and pools, In this stale Morph may float
upwards. He may also pass through small holes and grilles. However the 60S is very combustible and doesn't mix well wilh extraction fans. Gas is lighter than air, so it connot move downwgrds Flexible cogs. He must collect the cog in eoch level, complete the level wiisin the given number of transformations, ond use no more of any individual transformations than allowed.
The levels (Garden, Factory. Sewers and laboratories) ore spread over four different areas, each of which has its own particularly tricky hazards ond puzzles to complete, This is one of those games which on first glance looks the worst puzzle game in existence, but if you sit down and toke your rime you will discover a classic.
Changing shape and substance is one heck of a concept ond os far os I know nothing has been GameR done like this before. Controlling the gome is simple. The joystick is used to move Morph around, each state having its own movement characteristics.
Lo change into onother state all you hove to do is hold the Fire button down ond move the stick left, right, up or down depending on which state you want to be. The layout and design of the different levels is really clever. The first few levels are relatively easy and you feel as though you'll complete Morph in 15 minutes, but os you progress everything gets more complicated and you have to put more thought into the gome.
It contains some brilliant graphics - chunky and colourful. The introduction sequence is especially impressive ond some of the income onims raise a wTy smile, The Professor looks os though he would fit perfectly into on episode of Mr Benn On the sound front there is o happy, bouncy little tune which runs throughout with plenty of good sound effects clotted around. I think Morph might take a bit of a battering from some AMIGA gomes mogs, but I liked it. The only comploint I could think of is that it could have done with o few more levels, but perhaps if it’s successful, o data disk might
oppear Morph is the best puzzler I've played since Lemmings 2 and it will definitely oppeol to puzzle fans in a big way, It has got the graphics, sound, playability ond is addictive as hell. Whot more do you wont from o computer game?

Now (or those you out there v o have looked at the title ol this game ond thought *hmm that sounds familiar' Wei, (or those of you ore old enough to remember, Apocalypse wos originally going to be produced ond marketed by Mirrorsoft.
Well, ol course I don't need to tell you any more because you will already know thol Mirrorsoft were once part of the Mirror Group.
You will also in-tum know that the Mirror Group was run ond owned by Robert Maxwell who impressed us all with his twisted (hmm) treble pike into the ocean off his luxurious yacht.
This turn ol events eventual brought down the oxe on Mirrorsoft ond also on their forthcoming releases including one of the biggest and most hyped gomes ever, Apocalypse.
Now one day on employee at Virgin Games wos looking through some 'whotever happened to...* files and up popped Apocalypse. Being estate business types, Virgin promptly snopped it up.
Hands were shaken ond there were smiles all round.
Apocalypse is almost here. The game will be released this Summer and it is, in my humble but ever accurate opinion, going to be absolutely massive The game borrows o lot of its ideas and looks from the film Apocalypse Now, which is regarded by many as the definitive wor picture thanks to its amazing sense of realism ond great octinq You take to the skies in a super sleek helicopter and prepore to take everything the enemy con throw at you. In terms of gameplay it's basically a straightforward shoot-'em-up, but in terms of sight and sound it looks like being heralded os o Project X-beoter The
story is that lots of heavily armed rebel forces are amassing on the seemingly insignificant O V THE mmm « ¦ ill.
Urawingbnard It's been in production for longer than the Channel Tunnel, but now Virgin proudly present their ace helicopter shoot*'em*up. Jonathan Maddock gets down in 'nam and investigates... island of Mojipoor Something is obviously going to happen, but you don't know what.
The objective is to rescue as mwiy prisoners of war as possible while seorchino for your best buddy os well as finding out what is obout to occur. It won't be easy, you'll have to fly through five levels of bullets, flak, missiles and rockets.
What this means for the gamesplayer is the return of the mega violent shoot-'em-up with more oction in it than your overoge Arnold Scworzenegger Rick.
The chopper has an awesome amount of firepower and is loaded with rockets, heat-seeking missiles ond firebombs, all of which are acquired from supply boxes found on the ground.
Unlike some shoot-'em-ups, the weapons con also be used for destroying various bits of the scenery such os the enemy outposts; all thot remains intact is the lush flora and fauna.
There is so much going on thot you instantly find yourself in a world of mayhem where you live in seconds, not years, Although you ore surrounded by modness ond oction, the gome still commands a bit of order to moke the game playable.
As mentioned before, it is loosely based on Apocalypse Now which of course was obout the Yietnam War. The game isn't what you'd call politicaBy correct ond you don't half feel sorry for the little blokes who ore running about like mod trying to avoid your big nasty missiles, but hey that's wor and iKs kill or be killed, right kids?
Unlike its competitors, Apocalypse Now isn't o left to right scrolling shooter; it allows you to move vertically os well os horizontally which makes it o lot more interesting, as well os making the playing orea that bit more expansive and more realistic.
It comes complete with a whole range of stunning sound effects such as heavy machine gun fire, multi-layered explostons, roaring Romes and screams.
It is also littered with parollox effects that include bockground ond foreground objects to further enhance the unique depth of realism.
Miracle Gomes ore handling its development and production, ond their aim wos to create a product for the Amiga that would be worthy of on arcade machine. Having seen a demo of the gome I con confidently say that they have indeed ochieved that aim.
Apocalypse wj|| blow you minds when it orrrves on the shop shelves in a couple of months, if you're a shoot ’em-up fanatic then Virgin Gomes are about to provide you with your own personal slice of shool-'em-up heaven Smells like... victory The film Apocalypse Now wos mode in 1979 ond heralded as one of, if not the classic wor film. Set omid the muddle of Vietnom, the movie starred Martin Sheen, Robert Duvall, Marlon Brando ond Dennis Hopper.
It was directed by Francis Ford Coppola who wqs more recently responsible for the box office hit Bram Stoker's Drocula. The film received two Oscars for Best Cinematography ond Best Sound.
One of the best quotes from the movie is when, just after on oir strike, Lieutenant Colonel Kilgore [Robert Duvall enthuses to o stunned Captain Wilard (Martin Sheen): "Smell thol? Do you smell thal?...Nopolm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like thot. I love the smell of napalm in the morning.

Blood than yout overoge abattoir Everyone I know wenf absolutely mad and fell in love with the damn game Out of all those people I know not one who has turned into a moss murderer. In fact, Moonstone actually roised a few laughs and smiles insteod of looks of horror and distaste But the cutesy game has now token over from the violent game in popularity stakes and if it is done well the product will sell like the proverbial hot cokes.

I saw it about six months ago on the Sega Mega Drive and it looked brilliant It wasn't going to be released on the Amiga ot first, but Virgin decided thot il was so good that it should be released on all the other formats.
Mick and Mock armed with their Goo-Shooters hove to tackle four fearsome levels - Slime World, Mystical Forest, Toxi-Town and Arctic World. To complete the level you have to colled os many arches (McOorvdds 'M's) as possible while doing away with nasty monsters sveh os Slime Pigs, Yuckmogths and Splatter Bats.

Complitk Miracle Svstcm is roady to install In under 5 minutes and costs At the moment there ore a number of high class software companies, but one which has impressed us most over the last year or two is Teom 17.
They're a relatively small compony when compared to Virgin and Ocean, but I bet Teom 17 wouldn't swap places with any other software house at this moment in time. Almost every game has been herolded as a modern day dossic.
Alien Breed, Project X, Body Blows and Superfrog ore just the beginning. The question now, though, is who on this earth is going to challenge them for the title of all-round top gomes-producing heroes?
U w a aam- Urawingbnard Better watch out, there's a brand new software house about. Bioodhouse are here to amaze and entertain you... Well, take O look Ot the screenshots on this very page ond the game could be mistaken for a Team 17 product, but it's not. Bioodhouse are a software company from Finland and they most definitely ore the next big thing.
Stardust is Bioodhouse's first ever product, and has been created entirely m-bouse with no outside help at all. The Bloodies, os they shall now be know, say thot Stardust is one of the most visually impressive AMIGA games ever released.
It is loosely bosed on the old pub favourite Asteroids, but has been given a whole new lease of life thanks to the latest Amiga technology. The object is to dear the screen of asteroids arxl enemies while collecting all the bonuses and power-ups.
There is also a sub-plot in which an evil pra- lessor has decided to destroy the whale galaxy and kidnap the beautiful Princess Voi. To fulfil his evil scheme he uses his dangerous agents cunningly disguised as meteors to dear the galaxy of oil human life.
You play the part of the hero with the large anatomy who just happens to awn a heavily- armed intergolactic star ship. If you succeed everybody will cheer and buy you pints, but if you fail everyone they'll come round to your house, beat up your dog and nick yovr unknown in the world of computer gomes.
Stardust also uses 32 colours in the overscan mode and a new six-channel stereo sound routine.
The disk routines have been made os fost and simple as I possible. It's olmast as easy as using a console ond looding time has been reduced to an absolute minimum.
The gome has taken a whole yeor to develop and benefits from the chief programmer having been involved in developing Real 3D, one of the best raytrocing pro- jrams available for the here are so many levels eoch Back to the grophics, whkh in this case ore worth mentioning twice. They were produced using the ray-tracing technique to an extent as yet with its own set number of areas. In these you play the asteroids lookalike game, but when you complete »he level you hove to travel to the next.
This is perhaps the most impressive thing I have yet to see on the AMIGA.
It's a super fast, super scrolling shool-'emup which left everyone in the office doing impressions of guppies. The screenshots look OK, but when this baby moves it is just incredible. Youl see what I mean when the gome starts to reoch a few CoverDisks ond you con check it out for yourself.
Probably the best thing about Stardust is the price - ft K only set you back Cl4.99. Bioodhouse ore stressing that the gome is not on budget, but they felt thot gamers ore getting a bit of a rough deal at the moment - and what better way to get everyone to buy your gome?
Bioodhouse hove got a couple of other games thot are still at the development stage. One is an arcade adventure thot deverty combines polygon and bitmop grophics ond the other is a plot- former which uses a unique full-sCreen animation technique.
At the moment they are looking for new distributors, wholesalers ond retailers, so I suggest thot anyone interested give them o call ond domn quick too.
Bioodhouse are going to be massive I can guarantee it, ond Team 17 ore going to hove ta look over their shoulders now and ogain because the competition is here. All I need to do now is brush up on my Finnish.

You can now take a trip to Angoronn where there are some wondering OrtS for you te gain some experience on and get paid for doing it. You should also visit pool you wil Kirien, who The Gamer FI Jjjj sjy guide to Akeer who will jive you a due. Travel to While in tfiis state enrol a fellow warrior called Kirian. When sober, assess your weapons and buy accordingly.
Remembering that it takes 1,000 coins to save your odventure!
Now heod S and you will come to a house with a large amount of gold. You con take the gold oecouse it's free. Take the bridge to Lothario, where in one of the you will find the Unknown who con taught the lightning spell; you wiH need it later on.
Travel S and you will come to what looks like a bridge guarded by a barbarian, it is, in fact, Lake City, so kill him, gain your reward, eat and rest in the pubs. Torahan and fhironn can be enrolled if need be.
Remember to take their gold.
Heod S once more to cross the bridge and then turn S to find the lizard's house and the gold in the bushes. From here, heod E to Rhudgast and when you Ishar - Legend of the Fortress has just been rehashed and re-released on the Al 200, so all you new computer owners can thank David Wing from Nottingham who sent in this solution... reach (he border turn N.

Rf you look around there is another bog of gold hidden in the bushes. Go S from here and you will come across the Spirit of Azalghorm, who will tell you about three quests. If you follow the river S you will find a pedestal wilh a Runic Tablet on it - take this ond it will offer some sort of protection later on.
From here heod E, put on the white bights' helmet and enter Fimnuirh Forest.
Ryou can Head Dock to where you killed the white knight, travel E until you reach the river then head N. Eventually you'll find some dwarves who are looking for a fight, Take their gold when you have killed them. If you side step into the woods, in the distance you wil see the entrance to the Dungeon of Rhvdgost Forest.
In here ore four keys, two lots of food, three throwing knives, a flask for mixing notions, a flask of oil, two treasure chests ful of gold and a runic tablet.
In here is abo a very powerful giant, who is blocking the way to the flask room. It's best to blast him with everything you've got and then go bock to Lothario to recharge your physk energy. The skeletons in the dungeon regene?
Ate, so kill them and collect as fast as you con, Go N to the river ond travel E to the bridge kill the dwarves and then cross the bridge.

After trading it is a good idea to recharge your energies before crossing the bridge because there are a lot of barbarians hanging around and also a giant called Goto who guards a tor* toise, which wil be troded with another merchant for a useful potion later on.
Cross the bridge and heod 5 to the large city of Urshurok, which is full of ores, shops, spell learning and best of all, plenty of good pubs. Search ond listen well.
West of Urshurok is kandomir where Jon the Alchemist lives. If you're intelligent enough you'll be able to reod a scroll that wil tell you about the potions you can make from the supplies that can be found and bought in the shops.
It is now time to travel to Hdindor which is north east of Urshurok, where you learn thot Erwin's (laughter has been kidnapped and is hdd m Elwingil, You wil rescue her, but be warned - one of your party wil fall in love with her and you wil need to have prepared a "dis- nipt chorm' before you take her bode to Erwin's bouse, If you are successful, Erwin will give you a key to Valalbor Dungeon.

In Gilaras there is another runic tablet which you can colect, but before you do, you hod better hove O cure blindness potion because as soon as you step over the border you will be struck Wind.
North of Holindor is the forbidden house which contains another runic tablet, Brain Wash potion for all the party will In Swings, the ores regenerate every time you enter, so take your time, go in and out, coded a lot of money and rest in the pubs (ahh, such is life - Ed).
When you hove gained enough skills, leave Elwingil and head for Holindor then heod E. In some birch trees you will find a transporter.
Take the transporter and it will take you over the river into another Elwingil. Do not be confused - keep heading E and you will come to Fhutbrod Forest.
It is here you will find o trader who will give you something for free. If you enter the forest and try to find a clearing you will be attacked by dwarves, then you'll hna a pig.
This is really Morgula, a witch who was transformed, so now you know why you want a "pig transformation" potion. The witch has the much needed onti-krogh sped. She has a very low constitution so give her plenty of food. It is o now o good idea to travel to a dty _ Rhudgast Dungeon to strengthen her os much os possible for the task ahead.

audio-video blues as Media Madness comes under the microscope
155 Progmnunina Margaret Monger looks at typeface handling and
slums boir lo nuike il ei eu quicker M ne of the more
significant uses of Arexx - derived from its parent language
Rexx - is the ability to extend the system’s command language
to create custom commands.
Now, you may think that writing your own commands for file management is too difficult, but remember that Arexx can already use the existing AmigaDOS commands.
This combination of AmigaDOS and Arexx allows you to create your own custom utilities to do exactly what you want, when your existing utilities do not quite make it, Our example this issue deals with the management of directory’ trees. This is not a critical issue when you are using a system without a hard disk drive, but it becomes increasingly important as hard disks get larger.
The kind of jobs that we are most likely to encounter include the locating, searching and identifying of files. I recently used a script similar to the one presented here for extracting information from several CD-ROMs.
Our program uses the standard AmigaDOS command “list*, along with an Arexx program that checks all the subdirectories in the given directory: it returns the total size of the directory, including subdirectories. As far as I know there is no AmigaDOS command that can do this useful job.
In order to I* able to traverse (scan) an arbitrary’ directory tree to its full “depth’ and check for all subdirectories, it is necessary to use the programming technique known as recursion.
Recursion is a method of programming, where functions can keep calling themselves until a specified condition is met. It is useful when exploring structures (like lists and trees) whose size is not known IxTore* hand. We had a brief ltx k at Arexx and recursion in the April issue.
If you are familiar with a language like C. Pascal or Diagram Example recursion tree logo, you will already know about recursion. Hut if you are coming from classical Basic, where only iteration is used, the concept may at first seem a little foreign.
However, recursion is arguably the single most useful computing technique, and il is now being supported by sev- Trees I lush Haul Austin Im estimates a rendu Homily Midi interface that could finally make ibe Amiga a studio standard 139 Phil Smith looks iil the exciting, i hi emotional uoifd of multiuser Humes - ail doUMtfOUT lelefibonc line HI IHNM 1h i- (hull ltluyfield comnuoui in I nuts i WH H'h Phil South lo unit lei " erer use one field it ben tiro trill diL..' 1 PuhlishtHg lien Pointer u ilh same sound adi ice regarding the abolition of annoying hugs in your Pi,si Script files |»S Read
through and run our program, treesize.rexx, on the CoverDisk.
There are a few things to bear in mind: Our main program calls a second Arexx program(macro) called filejotal.rexx. This macro finds the size of each individual directory and can be used on its own. Eg: r* "say He_totil(’ libs: ’) You should copy it to your rexx: directory. Make sure that there is a valid assignment for rexx:. Also make sure tha! The rexxsupport library is available. The following two lines should be somewhere in your startup; riUb reixsupporc.ttbrary 0 -SO 0 assign rin: iyj:reii Now the main program. First the command line is checked to make sure that the specified
directory is legal. If no directory is specified, the program assumes we want the current directory. Pragma() gives us its name.
I have also added a quiet option, The program which only prints out the total size, instead of printing the complete subdirectory structure. This is a bit of a last minute add-on. But that is the charm of Arexx - it can be as elegant. Or as ‘quick and dirty" as you want, After all the initial stuff, we call our treesize function. Before it descends to the next level, the function performs the following actions: It prints the name of its current level and then generates a list of all its subdirectories. If there are none, it just gets the sizes of the files at that level, and returns.
If there are subdirectories, it enters a loop, where it processes each one in turn. The names of the directories are placed in a list (subdirs) which is processed by the expression: VAR subdus nevdir subdirs You can see that this expression uses a form of recursion! Each subdirectory from the list is then passed to the function. Also, every time the function is called, a bit of extra tab space is added, to make for prettier printouts.
Every time the function returns, the size of the subdirectory is added to the total until there are no more. Then the size of any files at the current level is also added to the total and the loop is exited.
Then the total is printed and the function exits. Simple but very powerful. The Basename() function simply extracts the name we want to print from the full pathname, and highlights it Finally, a few words about the filejotal macro, All that it does is direct the output of the list" to a temporary file. This file is then read and all the numbers are added up. That's all there is to it!
The only peculiar thing about it is that we reverse each line before we parse it. This ensures that very long filenames, or names with blanks in them will not upset our parsing. It’s weird but it works very well.
AREXX eral modem Basics, including Amos. Arexx provides a quite a good platform from which to learn aboui it.
To get the basic idea have a look at the example tree in Diagram I. Here is a simplified model of a function that traverses such a tree recursively: TRAVF.RSEf adi rectory) Do ACTIONS BEFORE next level LOOP WHILE there are more subdirectories TRAVRRSFX next,subdirector ') END of LOOP Do ACTIONS AFTER returning RETURN TO PREVIOUS LEVEL Notice that when the function calls itself, any effects of the 'Actions Before'’ (including the values of any variables) are preserved. And are not affected by the actions at the next level down; once the function returns from that level, it can carry on
working where it had 'left off", so to speak.
The trade-off for this convenience is the size of the memory required. If you are traversing a tree with many levels, you can leave quite a backlog liehind you. And it all has to be kept in memory until you return to deal with it.
Now let's look at our example tree in Diagram 1 again.
Suppose that we traverse it, printing the name of each level as soon as we enter it (ie as pan of the "Actions Before” in our pseudo code*.
Then, predictably the director)' names will be printed in the following order: abedefgh. On the other hand if the name was printed as part of the "Actions After-’, the order would be; c d b f g h e a Follow the arrow's on Diagram I. and you will see that this is so.
If the name was printed Ixnh ’before* and ‘‘after’ dealing with the next level down, the sequence would look like this: a b c c d d b cfgghhea .orto look at it more graphically, by adding the appropriate spaces: ) be e cc dd ff gg hh You can see that what happens is a series of descents and ascents into the tree branches which make a sort of ‘bracketing" effect.
This property is exploited to good effect by our example program The name of the directories are written on entry, but tlte size is only written when all the sublevels have been checked and counted!

For those who missed the June issue. Media Madness - as you may have guessed - is an element within the overall B&PPro2 environment,- offering the unique ability to control multimedia events via Midi information As you're no doubt aware. B&PPro2 is primarily a Midi sequencing package which in normal circumstances would be much more at home within the Insight music column.
However with the addition of Media Madness the horizons of Midi - and sequencing in general - have been broadened by an almost infinite degree.
Like any self-respecting sequencer. B&PPro2 and in turn Media Madness arc strictly Midi-literate and as a result take their instructions solely from Midi information already present on the track or played live.
Just like normal Midi music, multimedia events can also l)c interpreted in real-time and as a result images, anims and even hardware control can lie fired-up and recorded in real-time.
In the case of normal Midi data, the information is simply read by the sequencer and assigned to as specific channel, which then emerges as a voice whether it be from a synth or sound module.
The clever pan about Media Madness is that it follows exactly the same principle as the main sequencer hut rather than assigning tone and pitch to note data it applies a multimedia event.
This is achieved by using a Hit List which simply appends a specific event to any one of the 128 notes available within each Media Madness track This is done by opening the specific Media Madness tool and then simply defining the event which will occur whenever that note is encountered during playback or recording. .
Better still, the Midi information used by Media Madness isn't restricted to simple Midi-on Midi-off information, and nowhere is this better illustrated than within the Last Slide Show - otherwise known as an IFF picture view.
Aside from simply displaying the image on request, any pitch bend or modulation on the note also affects the image with fading and colour cycling being added live or edited in later via the program's graphic note editor.
Most of the tools listed in the box on this page - with the exception of Scala - don't require any specific software.
However for hardware the situation is completely reversed with a number of tools dedicated entirely to specific bits of equipment. On the genlock side tools are provided for both the SuperGen 2000 and GVP’s G-Lock. Continuing in a GVP-friendly vein, support has also been included for the IV24 - with a tool designed specifically for the hoard's PIP option allowing automated freeze frame control from inside the sequencer.
Better still, even more video-esque tools allow access to the MediaPhile Desktop Video System, the Panasonic Optical Laser Disk Player. The Video Toaster and lastly the SunRize 12 and 16-bjt sampling boards.
When all of the above is added to the incredible power and flexibility of the B&PPro2 sequencing environment you end up with arguable die best multimedia control system on the market.
If you have a yearning to add Midi to you creations and boast a system that can take advantage of what the new B&PPro2 can provide, even the £299 asking price seems cheap. For more information on B&PPro2 and Media Madness contact Meridian Software Distribution on 081-543 3 00.
Bars, pipes and Paul Austin offers a cure for the audio-video blues as Media Madness comes under the microscope pictures I For the average Amiga videophile animation, soft tools are one of the i 'hose soft tools... d m of every event would be a real pain. As with the stand-alone Media Madness With the wide variety of options on hand, manual addition and editing tion. As a result ANIMal - alias the anim tool - is well blessed with options including preloading, playback and remove.
Each can be appended to the note of you choice allowing completely automated anim handling - all perfectly synced to a Midi backing track.
As for statics, all the essentials have already been mentioned with basic set-up following the same format of opening the requester and assigning the image to the note in question.
A result the Punch Bag tool has been included offering a live recording and testing device which sits on the input to the track ready to instantly translate live input from the keyboard into the multi- media event of your choice.
On a technical note comes the Command Performance tool allowing the software to control other software or hardware via Arexx or text strings.
Next on the techie list comes the MM Recorder which provides an alternative method of recording files that can then be used in conjunction Although samples are supported within the main sequencer the SamplePhone offers the unique opportunity to assign a different 8-bit sample to every one of the 128 available notes. As a result a potential production could boast animation with synchronised samples plus of course a Midi sound track.
Player. Although useful - according to the manual - the same effect can be produced by simply using the record option within the interface. Strange but apparently handy on occasion, In a rare show of comradeship, Blue Ribbon have teamed up with Scala to produce a link which allows B&PPro2 and in turn Media Madness to control Scala by assigning the loading and playback of pre-defined Scala scripts.
This tool above all others shows the one downfall of the Media Madness environment, namely the huge demand on system resources required to run the software. In order to operate the Scala and B&PPro2 combination effectively you'd require at least 6Mb of RAM housed inside an 030 or better.
_ | Last and most definitely l" I least comes Yak - a I tool that like it or not offers the chance to employ the cheesy talents of the Amiga's internal speech to add that certain something to your production. Funny rather than particularly functional is probably the best description!

The program on the CoverDisk uses both techniques, and also demonstrates Intuition GADGKTIP. GADGETDOWN and MEN I'PICK events.
Each gadget is pm of a linked list, and contains poinicrs to its own IntUiTeXt stnicture lor its text, and border struclures for its border data. • The address of the gadget just pressed or released can be* taken from the IntuiMessage structure directly, and used in the event handler. Each menu structure normally forms pan of a linked list of menus, each contains a pointer to a linked list of menuitems, which in turn may contain pointers to a linked list of subitems.
The menus are attached to tlx window with a SetMenuStript) command. Tlx* MENUP1CK event needs further interpretation by the program. 11* first menu address and the code aa* input into the ItemAdresst) command to generate tlx* address needed for the event handler.
The source code file, gadgets.c. contains the details of each menu and gadget structure used in the demonstration program, and also their event handier.
Letters to lx* displayed on-screen arc stored as a text string in .Ascii format, w ith a code corresponding to each letter or character, code 32 for a space. 4b for number 0.63 for letter A. and so on. All tlx* way up to code 127.
In Amiga memory then: is a font that contains a dot partem for all these codes, and information about tlx-ir height and width, The PROGRAMMING low-level graphics routines.
The chosen letters can he defined creatively on a Dpaint screen, saved as an IFF file, read by the program on to a bitmap in memory, and copied to tire screen bitmap with the BltBit.MapO command. The BltBitMapt) command copies a rectangle from a source bitmap to a destination bitmap.
It is necessary to specify the source and destination bitmap addresses, tlx* pixel position of tile source and destination rectangles in tlx*ir respective bitmaps, the size of the rectangle in pixels, the minterm or logic function, the combination of planes to lx* transferred and the buffer used to hold information if source and destination overlap.
The value of the minterm variable defines the way each source data bit is copied to the destination at a pixel position on a bitplane Minterm 128 copies the source bit only wlx*n the position already contains a destination bit. Minterm 64 only copies the Type casting TextO routine would look at the first code in tlx* string (say 65).
And copy the corresponding dot pattern (A) on to the screen.
Tlx* dot pittems can he displayed normally, or with die tkxible dots (bold), the baseline drawn (underline), die letters slanting (italic) or any combination of these styles. The command SeiSoftStyle( RastPort.styleflags,enable) changes tlx* current style, the flags are listed in the appropriate header file from die "include" directories.
The default font. Topaz 8. Is stored in ROM. Topi? Is the name of tlx* basic shape of the letters, and their lieight is eight pixels alxne tlx* baseline. Hie other ROM font is Topaz 9. To get a punter to tlx* Topaz 9 font, we initialise a data structure, with its text atinlxites.
FONT SUB-DIRECTORY The OpenFontt) command returns a printer to a font with die right name and the nearest size, if it is available. The SetF nt RastPort.FontPtr) command will set dx* RastPori font printer to the chosen font. In addition to tlx ROM fonts there are several fonts stored in tlx* fonts directory on die WorkBench disk.
Each font has a header widi die font nanx* and sizes available, and a subdirectory with the dot pitiem details for each size. For tlx- garnet font, fonts garnet.font is tlx* header, fonts gamel 9 and fonts garnet 16 details of the respective sized fonts, To obtain a printer to one of these fonts, the command OpenDiskFi int( TcxtAttr) is used in a similar way to the command OjienFont for a font stored in ROM. The font an lie .set. and the style changed as for a ROM font.
Tile OpenDiskFont command is in the DiskFont Library, which is usually in the libs directory of the system disk. Tins library has to lx* opened lx*fore either of its commands (OpenDiskFont and AvailFonis) can be used.
Unfortunately the text routines cun be a little slow . They are ideal in a word processor or an program, bit too slow lor a games scoreixiard. When speed is important it is better to make use of source bit only when there is no corresponding bit in the destination. Minterm 32 retains the destination bit only when there is no source bit in ilie position. Mintcmi 16 only puts a hit in tlx destination where tliere is no bit in either source or destination.
Margaret Stanger looks at typeface handling and shows how to make it even quicker Some of these values can be combined to make further minterm values. Minterm 192 copies the source contents directly into tlx* destination. Mintenn 48 copies the inverse of the source straight into tlx* destination.
Minterm % outputs the source bit where there ls no destination bit. The destination bit where there is no corresponding source bit - useful for putting an image on a background after first creating a liolc of tlx* correct shape by copying using a minterm with a value of 32.
Tlx- four-bitplane picture has letters defined in colour 15 - this means that each hit plane contains exactly tile same image. In this case, dx* values used for the combination of planes corresponds to tlx* logical colour number.
A minterm of 192 and a planes value of 1 must lx? Used to copy a letter using logical colour 1. To superimpose a colour 3 letter on a background, first copy with mintenn 32 and planes 15, then copy with mintenn 96 and planes value 3 On the CoverDisk... The program on the CoverDisk (letters) demonstrates text fonts and styles. There are three source files - letters.c with the main program, gadgets.c with the data for the gadgets and menu Items, and iffread.c which contains a routine to read an IFF picture from disk on to the screen.
The source files are compiled separate* ly, and their object code linked together with the Blink utility using the file letters.lnk. After the main libraries are opened, the program looks for the diskfont library, and exits with a message if the diskfont library fails to open (this can happen if the file dfO:libs diskfont.library is absent).

Rendale Genlocks are built to a very high standard, and are used widely in the professional environment.
The Rendale range of Amiga Genlocks begins with the 8802. This is a Genlock, which, when attached to an Amiga computer and a suitable video system, will allow you to mix video and computer graphics. It offers all the functions that you need, such as: RENDALK 8802 £139-
* RGB feed through, allowing for a preview monitor.
High quality output video, which in default mode provides video with overlaid computer graphics.
Rj -PH f J A I 2 It can be supplied with a device which will allow you to fade between fJ, y ' computer graphics and the video source, and also a mode control unit so that Li HiYA j'jjJLJ you can move between Amiga only, video only, background mode and £178 - keyhole modes 1 & 2.
The Rendale Super-8802 is a development of the basic 8802 unit, it performs the same functions, but has the added capability of also working with Super- VHS signals. The unit will allow the user to cross fade between the Amiga and video signal. In addition, some basic wipe patterns are provided, and also a fade to black option. Mode control is also provided via hardware.
RBNDALi SUPER-8802 £499- 8802 FMC Unit HiWI RENDALE FMC E45-fitted This is a brand new piece of kit which will improve the capabilities of the popular Rendale 8802 Genlock. This unit allows you to cross fade between the Amiga and video signals, so that you can gently fade computer titles in and out. Also, the ability to switch between the various modes offered by the 8802 is provided. The required mode is selected by a push switch, giving smooth, flicker free transformations.
The FMC unit does need to be soldered into the 8802, we can do this at our factory if required.
UPGRADE PATHS 8802 £45- £400- Rendale Genlocks are designed to be flexible, and the ability of your Genlock to grow with your system was deemed to be of paramount importance in our design process.
As a consequence, existing 8802 users can follow one of two upgrade paths.
The fade and mode control unit (FMC unit) can be purchased independently, and fitted to your 8802 genlock by our engineer. We would only require your unit for around two days.
The other upgrade path is the move from a purely composite 8802 to the Super-8802. This can also be done simply, although we do have to perform the upgrade work at our factory. We would only require your unit for around two days.

(though the Amiga is on a real musical high it's still suffering something of a credibility gap in pro circles. This has been due in part the head start enjoyed by the ST but also some of the power options the Amiga lias overlooked in die past.
Fortunately blue Ribbon have spotted the gap and taken the long-anticipated step to dose it with the release of Bars £i Pipes Proi and now Triple Play Plus - a 48-channel Midi interface that could add the final nail to the lid of the ailing ST coffin.
As far as plug-in bits of plastic are concerned the new Triple Play Plus doesn't exactly leave you gasping for breath - at least not on an aesthetic level. However beneath the bland exterior lurks real innovation.
On the face of it this unassuming black box simply provides the usual selection of three Midi-outs, one Midi-in and a singular Tbru-port all connected to the machine via a generous length of cable.
MIDI SWITCHING If used with packages other than those in the Blue Ribbon stable, the unit's humble appearance is reflected in its performance - operating pretty much along die lines of a bog-standard 16-channel interface with the only real difference being the ability to switch between the three available Midi-outs via a small software utility .
However, when our anonymous-looking peripheral is employed in concert with elements from the Blue Ribbon range, the humble black box takes on a whole new persona.
Gone are the constraints of the standard Midi environment, to lx* replaced by an amazing 4K channels all eager for simultaneous application.
By selecting one of three outputs - courtesy of add-on tools
- the relative data is sent to the chosen Midi-cxit on the rear
of older elements in the Blue Rihbon range.
For the vast majority. Triple Play will be destined for Bars&Pipcs Pro in any one of its various forms. However, even ageing members of the Blue Rihbon user base aren't ignored courtesy of dedicated tools designed specifically for the original BarSCSIPipes program.
Fortunately all the necessary drivers and ux)l variations come as standard with the Triple Play support disk. As a result potential upgradcrs shouldn't lie left stranded - if and when they decide to invest.
In the case of both Bars&Pipes Pro and its predecessor, installation is a simple nutter of copying the appropriate tools from the support disk and installing them just like any odier in your collection.
Tile only real difference is that the original Midi-out tool must lx* removed to make rtxim for the First of the three Triple Play outputs.
Fortunately Blue Ribbon have been careful while designing the new ux ls and as a result once iastalled die program uses TriplcPlay-1 tool as a generic replacement for tlx* default Midi-out on boot-up.
Thankfully this stretches to existing songs that luve been written using the old Triple play spectacular die interface. As a result, set-up is a simple matter of plugging in the interface, adding the hardware of your choice and copying the appropriate driver or tool to your sequencing software.
Obviously a proprietary combination of hardware and software is great for designers and suppliers but not always good news for we punters. However in this case I must admit to lx-ing pleasantly surprised as Blue Ribbon have succeeded in providing compatibility with not only the new. Hut also the The One Stop connection Regulars may remember last month’s feature on yet another release from those industrious souls at Blue Ribbon, namely The One Stop Music Shop.
Although fully explained in the last issue, it's worth mentioning that when used in conjunction with Triple Play, the available Midi channels are boosted even further.
When the hardware and associated software are added to the overall Bars&Ripes environment, the available Midi options expand even further with full access to the Emu-Proteus within One Stop in addition to the 48 channels on offer from the Triple Play, And of course, if money is no object you could always add the talents of either the 16 or 12-bit SunRize direct-to-disk samplers - both of which are supported by B&PPro2 as standard.
16-channel format. Fortunately the software automatically updates the song to reflect tlx* changes within the new environment - again replacing Midi-out with TriplePlay-1 - thereby avoiding a tedious tu-k through the track list applying the new tools.
With the recent upgrade to Superjaml.l. it's not a total surprise to Find Triple Play support in the form of a special Triple Play "paccess" which can be dropped into the Superjam accessories drawer and subsequently loaded into the Superjam environment when required.
OUTPUT SWITCHER However due to Superjam's limited number of performers Blue Rihbon luve side stepped the att-channel option offered within the Bars & Pipes range and opted for a Superjam replica of the Triple Play output switcher provided for other sequencers.
Just like its Workbench counterpan. Tlx* Superjam accessory simply toggles between the three available Midi outs. Although a thoughtful, add-on Superjam support isn't exactly a strong selling point, which further conFirms the unit's appeal to the professional rather than the amateur market.
Obviously with an asking price that hovers ominously close to £170. The Triple Play may he a little rich for the blood of most enthusiasts. However if you take your Midi seriously - or more to the point professionally - it's a relatively small price to pay for the added flexibility* on offer.
For those lucky enough to be heavily burdened with assorted drum machines and sound sources all sharing tlx* same channel presets, it offers a beautifully simple method of combining them all on the same channel while avoiding the inevitable clashing experienced on a standard 16-channel systems.

These people lived ordinary lives during the day but at night they
became wizards, fighters and monsters, trekking through unchaited territory, meeting interesting people from all walks of life... and killing them.
These people I've mentioned aren't homicdal maniacs, they're just ordinary Joes like you or I. But they do use their modems to join others in computer-driven multi-user games, games that bite back because the opponents aren't simulated artificial intelligences. They're real thinking, breathing humans, And like humans, if they don't like you you'd tatter watch your ass.
COMMS Multi-user games used to be called multi-user dungeons, after the first such game which had that name. MUD was written by Richard Bartle and was launched by BT in the mid-80s.
Eventually, much like Micronet later, the service was run down and disappeared.
The game then went over to the US where it went crazy under the name of British Legends. The creator of the program continued development to the degree that now we have MUD 2, but more of that in a moment.
In a time well before the word, let alone the concept, of cyberspace became a fashionable thing to talk about, real people lived an electronic life in addition to their real one Late lamented Micronet BT were the fbi to really do something alxiut this in the UK.
First MUD. Then Shades on the late lamented Micronet, closely followed by many others, half as good and a third as short-lived Then an allied stream of games turned up - online ones, which although not necessarily featuring multiple users, did enjoin users to use them online.
Such games only have limited popularity in the UK - unless the call is local you can only really play for a very short time, unlike in die USA where local calls are free and online multi-user games run riot over the Net.
Now in the 90s we have a lot of more sophisticated games on computers, and muld-user games have had to be more sophisticated to keep up.
One system in the UK which exemplifies this approach is Online. The system operates via the Tymnet and Dialplus networks across Europe, enabling users all over the EC to dial it up via a local phone call. Costs are just £2 per hour network charges, plus Online's charges which are £2 per hour for nonmembers or £10 a month all-in if you subscribe to the system.
If you're in the London area it’s a local call and you don't pay the network so that works out at about 86p per hour instead of the £2 you'd pay if say you called from Europe or other far-flung places in the UK.
The games on the Online system are Air Warrior, a multi-user flight comhat simulator; Federation, a multi-user adult space fantasy; MUD 2. The sequel to the original MUD; and finally Internecine, a futuristic battling game run by Email. This is just like the play-by-mail RPG games, but being played by Email it runs that much faster.
CIX has Its own online game run via the Internet, based on the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett. Many other MUDs and MUGs are run on the Internet.
For example Lee Bohan (at least I think that's his name, bohanl@cs.eston.ac.uk is his Email address and he signs himself as Lee), told me in a recent Email message; "If you like multi-player games, but are sick of the delay of the ones in the USA. There is now one here at Aston, called Magic Moo.
"It can be accessed by telnet on dougal.aston.ac.uk port 7777. And although not the busiest in the world, is fun."
• For more details about Online, call them on 031-5536114.
It is is like a futuristic game show, much like Stephen King s The Running Man.
Where tta* contestants fight each other in an arena using all manner of weapons.
Aldiough some of the games are text- based. Most these days are graphic. Air Warrior is a graphic simulation of flying in an attack aircraft, and all the other players are seen as other aircraft.
Aldiough Federation is a tcxt-hased trading game, originally written by Alan Lemon, it now has a graphic front end called FedTerm, so it's now more of a graphic role-player.
The games, especially the graphic ones, arc specially designed to work despite the great distances involved. Air Warrior, for example, will work on a 1200 baud modem upwards, and has been carefully Glorious MUD Phil South looks at the exciting, international world of multi-user games optimised to make sure that the action never stops despite die distance between you and the game.
This works in much the same way as games which operate in two- player'two-machinc configurations over a serial null modem link.
As well as all the games, the Online system also has Forum, its own Conference service and Email system. The PC and Amiga are served as far as graphic terminal programs and ways of playing the game are concerned. Ixit of course you can log on with any machine provided you want to use text-only games and services.

AMOS A effect is very clean and smooth. The other way of doing
it is depicted in the Starblazer clone, also on the TOME
disks.
The beauty about that is that it's all done with simple screen copy commands, and because SCREEN COPY is so fast, you can do other things and not have it all slow dow n as soon as you move a sprite.
Bear in mind that you’re probably going to compile it all anyway, so it'll go faster than it does when it's interpreted, ie being run by Amos, and keep it simple. If you're going to do parallax scrolling don’t use a huge sprite, for example, Apart from parallax effects, you can also do a number of other effects which require some form of transparency and two effects moving in sync, as shown in Listing I. That should give you something to write home about. Yes sir, dual playfield mode is good for any time when you lot of attempts to tell you about Dual Playfields has been cropping up in
recent magazine articles and books on the subject of Amos, and I thought it was about time we covered this subject in this column.
As far as the Amiga’s display system is concerned, a dual playfield is where two screens are visible at the same time, overlaid one on the other, where one is clearly visible through the other.
This is a handy effect for what they call in the game reviewing business Aparal)ax scrolling*, like in the game Shadow of the Beast. There is an Amos demo which shows off this effect, called ‘Madness Week" by Syntex (get it from the Amos PD Library’ today!).
For good parallax scrolling - contrary to what you might read in other mags - you need to observe certain restrictions and keep your mind on what you want out of your scrolling screens.
If what you are looking for is high speed and pure hardware scrolling, unfortunately you have to Figure out ways of making dual playfield work properly.
This is awkward because one of the playfields will always go haywire once you scroll the other one. Just like some demos I've seen which supposedly show how it should be done. So this method is only recommended if you care to sit down and experiment with it for a few weeks... Following this reasoning to its logical conclusion, slower dual playfield is better as long as you don't need a major turn Flashy scrolling of speed, or if you scroll single pixels very slowly.
The best way of doing this is to do an overlay from another screen using get and put block. The best parallax scrolling is where you are doing what we call “band parallax" where you’re not overlaying.
Moving bitmaps This is simply a case of setting your screen copies up for scrolling different bands on the screen, which is the simplest and fastest way to do it. You must keep the scrolling itself very simple, so whereas some demos only use half the vertical height of the screen, they scroll the entire screen.
The proper way to do it Ls only scroll the areas of the screen which have the bitmaps in them, This way you’re not wasting processor time scrolling bits which aren't actually part of the action.
The best examples of this technique that I know of are to be found on die demo disk which comes with TOME 4. The First g x)d example is die Velcro Grub game, where there are two bands of screen scrolling, although the effect Is of parallax scrolling only - the bottom two are actually moving, but the write a program!
If you have any programs using dual playfield you'd like to show me then send them in on disk. The best ideas will receive a prize in the way of a special disk of Amos utils. Send your programs to: Dual Playfield compo.

Want to have two screens in motion on the screen at the same time, and obviously the best applications are going to be games and demos.
But I can see an application in video titling with a little bit of thought and imagination. Employ a bit of text scrolling and you can flip text around in two planes at once.
Experiment with the possibilities, but always remember to keep it simple if you want to keep it smooth.

(091) 4955440 VISA I ostScript is a pleasure that many don't
get a chance to experience Ixxaiisc ot the expense of
buying the nece.s- ¦EJB sary hardware. The way around
this is to use a software interpreter. One such program
is the freely distributable Post.
The advantage of using a program like Post is you can take a PostScript file and check for errors that may cause the file to fail.
These errors can prove expensive, especially when dealing with print shops.
II you hand them a PostScript file that has to be debugged, you are either goihg to have to pay for the time it takes them to do that, or take it home and do it yourself.
Essentially, a PostScript file is an Ascii file which, if you like, can be loaded into a text editor, from where you will suddenly realise dial debugging a file in this manner is something best left until you become an expert.
Luckily, there is another way of reducing the risk of failure. In order to make sure there are no unexpected problems when the code from that file is interpreted, you can take a PostScript file from a program like ProPage and run it through Post.
A common problem, for example, is text that is part of a graphic
- a caption perhaps - and at print time die font for that text
isn’t available. Another one is with graphics that you have
kiadcd from your storage device, but the output device at die
print shop can't find the graphics because it doesn't have
access to your storage device. After creating a document in
your DTP program you would PUBLISHING save the pages as
PostScript files. Ttiese can become Luge. Sizes of a megabyte
are not uncommon, especially if fonts are included in the file,
so PostScript files need to be saved to hard disk.
Once saved, you can check for errors.
Troubles like files not being found and problem Encapsulated PostScript files (EPS) can lx* highlighted by Post.
Although with experience some problems can be spotted by glancing at the PostScript file, often glitches are hidden.
EPS files, for example, can be a constant source of problems, especially when diey originate from many different sources.
With Post it is possible to “run" your file and watch for where it fails. The program interprets and executes each command, eventually displaying a representation of the page. You need to pay close attention because once the file fails the page will be Keep posted Options open In a nutshell. Post enables you lo output PostScript files to non-PostScript printers. It does this by taking the place of the PostScript interpreter inside a PostScript output device.
Instead of a page being imaged in the printer's memory, it is created as a bitmap in your Amiga’s memory, which can then be printed via Preferences as normal.
The great advantage of this is that if enables those who can't afford a PostScript printers to still take advantage of the enhanced options available to PostScript.
Although the author of Post. Adrian Aylward. Stopped developing it at v1.7. enthusiast Robert Poole has taken up the challenge and has recently released an enhancement, version
1. 86eh, which is still freely distributable, and which you will
find on Fish Disk 828.
What is PostScript?
PostScript is a computer language that was invented for simulating the control of shipping (yes, I mean the ones that float on water), but has now become the standard file format for desktop publishing (don't ask, it's a long and weird story).
MUDDY WATERS 5S3a« Developed by Adobe Inc. PostScript rose to prominence on the Apple Macintosh, the first computer to provide decent desktop-publishing software, and is now used by most publishing programs on the Amiga In one way or another.
PostScript s great advantage is that it is resolution independent. By that I mean that no matter what printer you are using, it will always output at that unit's highest resolution.
PostScript is also platform independent, which means that most of the Encapsulated PostScript files that you will find on public domain disks have been created on a Macintosh or PC rather than an Amiga, although Soft- Logik s Art Expression has now given Amiga owners better EPS support.
Erased from the screen.
Ben Pointer on how to avoid embarassing bugs in your PostScript files But before that you will have seen which images have been interpreted correctly, and hopefully part of the one that caused it to fail.
To correct this sort of problem you have a couple of options When the interpreter can’t find a font or graphic you can go dirough the code and look for the name of the missing file- Once found, the padi to die file can be altered accordingly.
For instance, if die file was loaded from the path DH0:Pix but is now on a floppy called EPS. Dicn it is merely a matter of changing DH0:Pix to EPS:. Using the search and replace facilities of your text editor makes this job easy.
If the problem is a graphic diat causes the Pile to fail, you have to make a decision - do you replace the image, or tty' to repair it5 If you want to repair it you will have to ensure you have an illustration program diat can load EPS files, something like Soft- togik's Art Expression. Once corrected it can be saved and then reimported into your document, a new PostScript file created, and then you go through the whole process again.
As you gain experience with Post and PostScript you will get an idea of what types of files will cause trouble, and should then be able to correct them without the time-consuming task of interpreting them.

PO I Pimm aCd 5®o Sor CM IranMCton* Proper Grammar II Supplier: Gordon Harwood Phone: 0773 836781 Price: £69,95 roper Grammar II from Softwood purports to offer x a stand-alone system for checking not only the spelling of your letters, documents, homework y and so on, but the sentences and sentence structures too.
Checking the interaction between words is a highly complex affair, however, and one which I felt a computer would not be able to handle satisfactorily at all. Still, I was ready to be surprised.
The program comes in a grossly oversized box containing two disks, a very professional ring-bound manual and a registration card - as well as a large non-biodegradable slab of foam rubber to pad the whole lot out with... Installation is easy; clicking on the Install icon on the first disk creates a single folder on your hard drive (a hard drive is essential in order to use this program) in which all of Proper Grammar's bits and pieces are neatly located without the user having to do a thing.
Familiar American English, although this is not as large a problem as it sounds, because the chances of mis-spelling a word with the American equivalent are pretty low, and when the program has been told British spellings it will remember them, but it's a minus nonetheless. The two smaller windows above the text window display respectively the offending word or phrase, and an explanation of what the computer thinks is wrong.
In common with straight spelling checkers, rather than automatically changing offending items, Proper Grammar II instead suggests improvements, This is essential, Once installed, the program's icon can be put out onto the Workbench desktop or left in its folder, depending upon personal preference.
If you've ever used a spelling checker within a wordpro- cessor, you'll be instantly familiar with the look and feel of Proper Grammar. On opening, the user is presented with a large window, above which are two smaller windows, and a number of dick-on options, about which more later.
The first task is to load a document to be checked, which is achieved using a standard-feel file requester.
Once your document is on screen, clicking on Start initi- Writing pnitr!
Check your English with the latest tetchy schoolmaster ates the check. The package comes complete with a 135,000 word dictionary, which in practice covers about 99 per cent of commonly used words. On a 2,000 word article, this would suggest that the program will know all but about 20 words, By adding words it doesn't know to the dictionary (a simple case of clicking on Add, and then specifying whether you wish the computer to "remember" the new word for this session only or permanently) it is possible, in practice, to avoid the computer highlighting peoples' names, common abbreviations and
other user-specific anomalies. A major minus point is the program's use of :lority,try replocing noun noifitrs with o preposrtionol phrose. The bank Hiplo ee business office1 becoies The business office for bank employees'.

Once its resolved, we should be oble to finish negotiating the contract.
M ?
Because the program's biggest downfall is that it's not particularly good at what it does.
The reason is simply that the English language is an immensely complex beast, and frequently highly illogical, breaking its own rules often and with an irritating degree of inconsistency. Ask any foreign student trying to learn the language!
Also, the program has no way of actually "understanding" what it is "reading", it cannot follow chains of context or meaning throughout a paragraph, as the biggest unit it can work with is the sentence.
Genuine error So it is constantly suggesting changes where, as the writer and human in the equation, you find yourself thinking: 'Yes, but if you'd read the sentence before..." or, "Yes, but in this case..." Don't get me wrong, it does manage to highlight errors which, as AC's sub-editor, I might have missed, but for each genuine error it spots there are a plethora of other you wish it'd have the knowledge to skip.
Its explanations of errors are general, too, and often over-complex. It would be much better if it could correct your sentence, rather than show you a stock sentence it has in memory, and it's my view that if you know what a "prepositional phrase" is, you certainly don't need a grammar checker to tell you!
As well as the basic grammar checking "bits" there is a simple text editor to make the changes necessary to your words, the ability to customise the checking routines so that the program takes account of your own writing Style (you might wish to use the word "which" instead of "that" more regularly than the program thinks you should, for instance), Arexx support and article statistics, including readability judged on the accepted Flesch Reading Ease measure.
In conclusion, the program's use of American English and the inherent problems in any computer program attempting to make sense of the English language limit its usefulness, but on the other hand its advice led to me "fine tuning" the article you're currently reading, so it's not totally useless. One for perfectionists with a lot of time on their hands.

The Canon B) 230 has been designed specifically for desktop office use, where desk space is at a premium, and at just 17in wide by 11 In deep it is smaller than most A4 printers. Yet the Bj-230 can print onto A3-sized paper.
Like all the Canon bubblejets, the BJ-230 contains two printer emulations: Epson LQ and B|-10.
To get the best from any Canon bubblejet you should understand that the LQ (letter quality) mode is best for text-only printouts, and that the BJ 10 mode is better for graphics, SO it is important to select the correct printer driver and printer emulation for the job in hand.
This is not as much of a bind as it may seem. By "text-only" printouts I mean any type of printout that uses only the fonts that are built in to the printer.
Typically this would be output from wordpro cessors like Protext, TransWrite and Scribble.
Other wordprocessors - Wordworth and Final Copy II for example - use scalable fonts on-screen and print them as graphics.
Desktop publishing programs work in the same way. So the odds are you’ll be in just one emula tion most of the time, depending on what type of printing you mostly do, only switching to the other when required.
Switching emulations is a simple matter of flip ping one of the DIP switches, which are conve niently located under a flap on top of the printer.
Inside the front panel of the printer, which pulls down to enable you to change the cartridge, is a summary of what the 12 DIPs do. After changing the DIP switch setting you then select the appropriate printer driver from Workbench printer preferences, and away you go.
Typefaces The B|-23Q has seven in built typefaces - eight if you count the draft typeface - and each is available in five sizes (10, 12, 15, 17 and 20 characters per inch) plus proportionally spaced. As well as the usual roman, italic and bold styles, there are further styles of emphasised, double strike, dou hie high wide, superscript, subscript, underscore, overscore, strike-through, outline and shadow.
Multiplying the number of typefaces by the number of sizes by the number of styles and mixed styles, there are almost 1,000 different type size style combinations - surely enough to keep the most ardent wordprocessor happy.
But if that isn't enough, Amiga bitmapped or Compugraphic fonts can be downloaded using the B| FontShop program. This software, and a bunch of proper bubblejet drivers and prefs pro grams for the Amiga, is available free from Canon on request.
The aforementioned plethora of typefaces are available in Epson LQ emulation. In BJ 10 emula tion you have only Prestige at 12 cpi, and Courier at 10 cpi, 12 cpi, 17 cpi and proportionally spaced.
You may ask why on earth you would want to use the Bj-10 emulation when the Epson LQ emulation appears so much better. Good question.
But the Epson LQ emulation prints graphics at a maximum of 360 by 180 dots per inch (dpi) using 24 of the jets, while the Bj-10 emulation does a much better 360 by 360 using 48 jets.
The difference in output quality is enormous, and while Canon is shy to claim that BJ 230 printouts are better than 300dpi laser printouts, if you print in Super High Quality mode on to high qual ity inkjet paper, the quality of the BJ 230 graphics printouts using the Canon software and drivers is without equal at this resolution and price.
Printout speeds are very fast for text, ranging from 248 characters per second in High Speed mode (about three pages per minute) to 124 characters per second in Super High Quality.
Graphics take longer to print, naturally, but the BJ 230 printed an A3 sized, 1Mb 24-bit graphic at 360 dpi in 15 minutes on my Amiga 3000, which the way to provide even more templates so the package will grow to meet your needs.
Award Construction Kit is distributed exclusively by E M Computergraphic who also have rights to the Safari range of fonts. Therefore, it is not surprising to find that ACK is supplied with a nice font selection and that the headline fonts can be toggled between two sizes.
Each certificate contains an appropriate clip art picture, to suit the occasion, and up to 15 lines for text entry.
Although these are split into logical groups for headlines, body text, signature, name and date, there is nothing to stop you using a text line for another purpose.
Flexibility They may be moved up or down the page, and even ignored, should you decide that a line is surplus to your needs. By default, the headlines and main text indicate what should be entered so that certificates can be produced quickly by a complete novice.
Flexibility and ease of use are the key design concepts.
Every feature of an award, from the border to the seal of authenticity, can be customised to suit an event.
A completed award certificate may then be saved, for future use, as one of five user-defined styles. The controls are truly intuitive and consequently little user documentation is needed or supplied. The main control panel is a point and click affair, while options are selected using sliders.
The package will run on any Amiga and install programs are included for hard drive users. The output quality of finished awards will clearly depend upon the print capabilities of the attached printer. There are drivers suitable for most printers although users may like to install their own by copying into the devs printer directory.
Youth groups, such as the Scouting and Guiding movements who work towards proficiency tests, are likely to find this utility invaluable. Although there is an award category for educational establishments, only schools are likely to find Award Construction Kit useful.
Colleges do not tend to hand out achievement awards unless they are for recognised qualifications, in which case the examination boards use their own designs. Having said that, the package is excellent and should prove popular with anyone who wants to knock out a certificate.
Colin Yamoll T* * Ki Bowling Award $ is no longer than a 300dpi laser printer would take. Amigas with slower CPUs will take longer to print graphics - printing a graphic of the size mentioned above on a vanilla Amiga 500 will take about an hour. This isn't the printer s fault, it's printing graphics as fast as the CPU can throw the data at it. The faster the CPU, the faster graphics will print.
The above example is with a big graphic, of course. A typical page of DTP d text with a couple of simple graphics will take perhaps 15 to 20 min utes on a slow Amiga, five minutes on a faster one.
An automatic sheet feeder comes as standard, taking about 100 A4 or 50 A3 sheets, or about 20 standard weight envelopes. There's no tractor feed mechanism, so the BJ-230 can't print on to labels, not even laser printer labels, because these come on shiny-backed paper which slips in the friction feed mechanism.
Canon recommended transparency film can also be used. One of the B| 230's most special features is its ‘'reduction" mode, where it will automati cally compress text and graphics to two-thirds the original size. This enables you, for example, to print 136-column wide spreadsheets on to A4 paper fed in sideways, and still get 66 lines per page.
This printer has only one "consumable", the ink cartridge (which also contains the print head).
They cost about £20 25 each, depending on how many you buy at once, and last for about 700,000 characters in High Quality mode.
While testing the BJ-230 I did very many A4 and A3 graphics printouts, which use a lot more ink than text printouts, using an old cartridge left over from a BJ 200 review (the smaller and cheaper A4 version of the BJ-230). I've lost count of exactly how many printouts I’ve done, but the same cartridge is still going strong.
The BJ-230 is small, fast, flexible, almost silent in operation, and certainly an odds-on favourite for the 1993 title of Perfect Desktop Printer. If you're after a mono printer and the B|-230 is in the price range you can afford, you must look at before buying anything else.
No dot matrix can hold a candle to it, and it produces a higher output quality than the rival Hewlett Packard DeskJet 500 and 510 printers, even on ordinary paper.

Please send a large SAE with a 36p Stamp for a comprehensive
printout of all Fonts.
Also state which programs you will be using (Dept.AC) 84 Thorpe Road, Hawkwell, Nr Hockley, Essex SS5 0702 202835 a Protext 5.5 For long the Amiga's premier wordprocessor, Protext is still the mott powerful, though lacking many of the features found in Wysiwyg packages.
Protext is fast, contains a powerful built-in macro and command language, can produce invoices using its line drawing mode, and has many of the features you'll only otherwise find in a PC package, such as auto numbering and self-incrementing variables.
For business users it is the only choice.
Disadvantages indude its limited display (definitely not Wysiwyg), its less than completely fnendly interface, lack of graphics support, and overall complexity, so it i? Perhaps not the ideal Choice for home users.
Ideal uses for Protext include invoicing, mail-outs (due to its powerful mail merging options), and the rapid generation of huge amounts of text (its simple display lends it the fastest typing speed qf all Amiga Wps), Supplier: Arnor Phone: 0733 68909 Price: £80 Wordworth v2 Another British-produced program. Wordworth is a smooth, user-friendly wordprocessor with fewer power features than Protext but superb document design options and a finished output that's better than most Wordworth is one of the easiest Wps with which to generate PostScript documents, as it has full support for the
standard and is supplied with 17 superb Agfa fonts. It also comes complete with support for 140 individual printers, enabling full control of built-in printer fonts from within a document The spell checker and thesaurus used is the Collins Linguibase (as used by Protext), so British spellings are the order of the day.
Both work very well.
The program’s disadvantages are that it can be memory hungry. Offers no macro facility, and can sometimes run very slowly when memory is tight Not the best WP for the office. Wordworth 2 is better suited to the production of high quality PostScript documents including graphics.
Ideal uses for Wordworth include letter writing, important documents which have to look just right such as Cvs, simple DTP tasks (its graphic support and PostScript options give it a definite advantage), and general home correspondence.
Supplier: Digita Phone: 039S 270273 Price: £129.99 ProWrite 3.3 Having recently been price-slashed. ProWrite is a rather attractive buy for those in need of a general purpose WP. The problem with ProWrite is that it is just that - general purpose. It is In the search to separate turkeys from peacocks, this month our piercing gaze falls upon the ever-popular wordprocessing market similar to Wordworth in that it is a full Wysiwyg package with direct PostScript support and a lot of icons for standard functions. However, the PostScript option isn’t as neatly implemented as the Digita
offering, the program doesn’t support built-in printer fonts, and it is slower, especially when Ham8 graphics are included in a document Having said all this, ProWnte is a perfectly usable package, and has the advantage of its ten user-definable macros which can be very useful with a bit of thought on the user’s part Like Wordworth. It has a good, though American, spell checker and word count but it will also carry out calculations and automatically sort a list of words in alphabetical order.
ProWrite is best suited to the home user who prefers to save a few bob and isn't too bothered about speed of scrolling. For those people it represents a bargain at its present price and should serve well in its general purpose role.
Supplier Silica Systems Phone: 081-309 INI Price: £79.99 excellence! 3.0 excellence!, which for some reason doesn't have a capital letter at the beginning of its title, is a huge sprawling package including a 140,000 word dictionary complete with definitions, a thesaurus, grammar checker, and PostScript support.
It sounds like great value for money, and in some ways it is, but excellence! Is in many ways over the top and suffers in the basic areas as a result Advanced features include the ability to use multiple column? Of text in a document. PostScript support using its own versions of popular fonts, automatic contents generation (of the others, only Protext does this), and graphic support.
However, text scrolling speed is poor and the program uses a lot of memory. For users worried about their presentation, excellence! Is a good bet as the built-in grammar checker is powerful enough to spot most of the mistakes made by amateur wordsmiths. This feature also makes excellence! A tool many teachers and parents might consider.
Supplier: Silica Phone: 081 309 INI Price: £49.99 Final Copy II Probably the most attractive looking wordprocessor around.
FCII is fast, colourful, and slick. Ham8 graphics and DTP are the program's forte, and it has a number of features specifically aimed at making good presentation easier.
Like its predecessor. Pen Pal. The program has drawing tools available for designing page elements from within the wordprocessor, but in line with the main competition, all AGA graphics modes are supported.
Uniquely (at time of writing). FC II also displays 256 colour graphics on-screen, making it the best WP for cofour printing, particularly PostScript printing.
FCII's main weaknesses are in the power wordprocessing areas, where several of the more advanced features found in some other packages are missing or not as well implemented.
For basic wordprocessing and superbly colourful pseudo-DTP, Final Copy II is a good bet. But don't expect to write a magnum opus with it Supplier Gordon Harwood Phone: 0773 836781 Price: £99.95 Scribble Scribble is one of the Amiga's golden oldies and is usually supplied as part of the Works Platinum home office package. It is a basic non-wysiwyg wordprocessor and has few, if any, whistles and bells.
Most of the standard options are there, including search replace, spell checker, and word count but its features are usually in the most basic form. Its dull looking interface, with no gadgets and all options restricted to menus rather like Protext 5.S doesn't score highly in these days of prettified software, but thousands of staunch users would no doubt agree that this leads to an easy-on-the-eye environment for bashing out text.
There's little to commend Scribble other than this and its low price, but it's still an attractive buy for those with a need for a basic text engine. If you want to produce documents with lots of text effects and different fonts, the print preview mode makes up in part for the lack of a modern display.

0255 431389 Fax: 0255 428666 A-Z OF VFM ~v ith the amazing
quality of the AGA chipset, the question asked by many Is: Why
bother with 24-bit devices when you can invest in an A1200 for
the same price or less?
A valid point, as for many potential investors the heyday of the bog standard 24-bit board is long gone.
However if you have specific needs, a true 24-bit display can Still be the only real solution.
There’s also the question of existing equipment. If you have a system based around old but nevertheless fast and effective hardware, replacing everything just to get the AGA isn’t a very attractive proposition. As a result here’s a rundown of the affordable and in many cases superior alternatives to the AGA.
* sive combination, if perhaps a little limited concerning
connection to video thanks to its single 15-pin VGA out on
the rear of the board.
H If you’re looking for a general purpose 24-bit system with a potentially longer shelf life than most the Retina is well worth consideration - especially if RTGs become popular.
Price: £350 Imbl£499 4Mb Available from: Amiga Centre Scotland Tel: 0896 87583 Avideo24 The buyers' guide to better budget graphics Just when you thought the budget 24-bit board was dead. Micro Systems' have come up with perhaps the ultimate alternative to the AGA. M the form of Retina.
Rather than a bog standard display system, the board offers a combination of graphics accelerator, painting environment and retargetable graphics platform.
On the acceleration side the improvement is fairly subtle with marked if not spectacular advances on everything from Dpamt to PageStream2.
To complement the speed increase the board also offers RTGs - or retargetable graphics which mean that any future software release written with the format in mind will be able automatically to take advantage of the board and its potential of
16. 7 million colours.
Even without the RTG option the card can still display WB and WB-compatlble software via the card - and due to it?
Rock-solid flicker free output all such programs automatically benefit from the same flicker free display.
On the down-side games software and other none WB com* patible programs won’t work on a single monitor system - which incidentally must be VGA or above.
In order to run such software a second monitor is essential connecting to the unaffected RGB 23-pin out in the normal manner.
With the ultimate two monitor set-up you have the basis of a graphics workstation with perhaps the addition of Vlab or Tvpaini adding the finishing touch. However it must be said that TruePaint - the board's standard paint package - is respectable, but not exactly spectacular. All told Retina is a pretty impres* The Digital Creations DCTV system is perhaps the ultimate compromise between the image quality of a true 24-bit system and the usability of the Amiga’s old style display modes.
Unlike all the other 24-bit systems, DCTV does not employ the ultimate quality offered via an RGB signal, but rather uses the lesser talents of a composite signal to display its wares.
It’s here where the compromise is made with numerous swings and roundabouts’ building up the overall DCTV picture - excuse the pun.
On the plus side the board's composite output is ideal for the user whoes creations are destined for video. Numerous packages including VistaPro3, Imagine2, Real 3Dv2 all support the DCTV file format as standard and will happily render an entire animation in it on play mode and approaching 2S in the lower quality 3-bit planes - dependent on the degree of movement within each frame.
Even with the 3-bit plane compromise DCTY is still impressive as an animation platform and is still widely regarded as the next best thing to still frame recording - thanks to its combination of available colours and anim speed.
In addition to the hardware comes with one of the better paint packages which includes the ability to make 24-bit frame grabs from freeze framed video. All in all, an excellent investment and ideal for the dedicated animators.
DCTV demand. Another huge advantage for the those making their first tentative and invariably expensive steps in serious Amiga art is the file size of DCTV images. As a rule a DCTV image is roughly I 10 the size of an equivalent 24-bit IFF. For those with limited means and storage this alone makes DCTV an attractive option.
On the display side the system again scores well with a maximum colour range around the 4 million mark. Although this may seem rather lacking in comparison to the
16. 7 of a true 24-bit display it’s more than enough for the
average video production.
Price: £379 Available from: Silica Shop Tel: 081-309 I III As far as animation is concerned DCTV again scores well with around 15 fps in the 4-bit plane disLike DCTV, Avideo is a compromise of cost and performance.
Unlike the DCTV. However. Avideo uses a true 24-bit RGB display which means much sharper images than ever could be achieved via its composite counterpart Retina To the credit of the Avideo system it was one of the first boards to attempt full integration into the overall Amiga environment For example it allows the display of the board to be used as a backdrop into which standard Amiga displays can be overlaid.
For multimedia applications this can be of vital importance as programs such as Scala can be overlaid over a vastly enhanced backgrounds. Alternatively, animation can benefit as standard Amiga anims can be employed above the backdrop in a similar manner to OpalVision.
In addition, Avideo will accept the services of a genlock to further glamorise your creations. However it’s not all good news, as the system's primary assets have been lost with the withdrawal of TVPaint. Which in the past was bundled with Avideo at no extra cost Although still a respectable 24-bit investment at just £269.
The removal of TVPaint has dealt a devastating blow - factor that's been compounded by its replacement which, alas, is very much inferior.
On the plus side plans are afoot to convert the AVPaint package from AyideoY C - a product you’ll find reviewed in this very issue. If that isn't satisfactory or perhaps doesn't happen you could still cough up £500 for TVPaint - not very likely, methinks... As for animation and painting, the system operates exclusively in its 12-bit mode which means hi-res 4.096 true colours resulting in quality way above that of old style Ham but nevertheless below that of hi-res Ham8, Due to strictly 12-bit anim playback, stepping is inevitable on gradients and this isn’t helped by a maximum frame rate
of 15 fps in the lowest resolution and a mere 12 fps in the maximum.
Although as mentioned 12-bit is the default environment, it's possible to jump into 24-bit for preview when necessary and when this is combined with the board’s interaction with standard Amiga graphics it still remains viable for those who require a basic 24-bit display system capable of the odd adventure into multimedia.
