Document sans nom INDI DIRECT MAIL Proudly Presents THE JAKKI BRAMBLES COLUMN Hi. It's been quite a month in the Commodore marketplace, no sooner had we all been told that Commodore had lost their shirt than we have been inundated with masses of good news.
First we have the launch of two brand new Commodore Amiga 120b packs one aimed straight for games market the other firmly at the more mature purchaser. The Chartbustcr Pack is great value bundled with Nigel Mansell’s World Championship race simulator. Trolls AGA and the all time favourite Amiga Challenge Pack. Desktop Dynamite reinforces the all round strength of the A1200 with a very powerful package based around Wordworth AGA.
Print Manager. Deluxe Paint IV AGA. Oscar AGA and Dennis I’he Menace AGA.
It's good to see Commodore create such a clear distinction between the Amiga 1200 market and the games console market, soon to be dominated by the Amiga CP32.
As I write this article the first of the CD32’s are about to land in the UK with a promised street date launch of the first w eek in September. The major news around this product is just how many of the softwnRe publishing houses are enthusiastically writing for it and of course that Commodore have decided to bundle 2 great software titles at launch.
Not to be outdone INDI have added a third so look foreward to receiving Oscar, Diggers and Lemmings w hen you take delivery of your New Amiga CD32.
The other item of news from Commodore does appear to be causing somE confusion. It is true that Commodore have appointed the giant ICL company to look after the warranty on their products but this only applies to Amiga CD32 and the Desktop Dynamite Pack. All other products and packs previously purchased or yet to be purchased will be covered by Wang.
Finally it was very sad to hear this week of the demise of Diamond Computer a well known advertiser in the Amiga Market. There is no doubt that the recession continues to cause the closure of many companies often without warning. Once again please be careful with your hard earned money and make certain that you follow the code printed in most magazines before you make that special purchase.
See you next month.
The exterior may be sleek but lurking inside the Amiga CD32 is a technological wonder.
At it's heart is the mightily powerful 681X 020 processor front Motorola. This contains the 32 - hit technology which has made the Amiga 1200 a runaway success throughout Europe.
Alongside it is Commodore's unique custom AGA I Advanced Graphics Architecture) chipset - comprising three chips nicknamed Paula, l.isa and Alice.
Together they make Amiga CDJ2 and awesome powerhouse of high speed graphics and stunning sound capabilities.
In fact, the machine can display 256.000 colours on screen (compared to Scga's Mega CD which can only display 64) and has a total colour palette of 16.8 million colours.
Amiga CD32 also comes with a chunky 2 Meg of RAM (that's 15 limes more lhan Mega
CD) and a double speed drive.

By John Butters A £7 MILLION advertising and promotion campaign aimed.at ensuring continued success for the Amiga has just been unveiled bv Commodore.
CBM make £7m Amiga push It comes at a critical time for the manufacturer - after a year of heavy cash losses and recent restructuring of the firm across the world - and alongside massive industry support, More than 40 CD32 games titles arc planned for launch between now and Christmas, with James Pond 2 and 3, Jurassic Park, Pinball Fantasies and Sensible Soccer among the first.
Two discs will be bundled with the player, and although Commodore refused to confirm their details, a reliable source
* told Amiga Computing they will be Diggers and Oscar.
But according to Commodore the games packed with the machine will be changed frequently to enable several software publishers to have similar marketing opportunities.
The firm's autumn campaign will centre on the new console, and will target European satellite and national television and radio, newspapers and top consumer magazines.
The plaver has already been featured regularly on children's TV shows and competitions in several high circulation newspapers have highlighted its advanced technology. Television advertising due to start in the next few weeks will use an android as a leading character who plays but cannot beat a console game.
The creature will also be featured on Commodore's show stands and in other merchandise being made on behalf of the manufacturer.
Press advertising is planned in teenage magazines, national newspaper and specialist computer publications, with some of the ads pushing computers in the range.
"Amiga CD32 is a landmark machine," claimed joint Commodore boss David Pleasance. "Everybody's talking about it now - weeks before its launch. With this campaign, we re giving it the sort of heavyweight backing to turn curiosity into sales. I'm certain Amiga CD32 will be the UK's premier consumer product this Christmas" AMIGA warranty repairs are soon to be handled by computer giant ICL under a multi-million pound deal just signed between the firm and Commodore.
ICL to fix Amiga snags Service and maintenance will include home visits from ICL engineers and, say Commodore, a level of service and support normally available only to blue chip firms.
Commodore's Colin Proud- foot: “We wanted to find a way to combine our strengths - innovative technology, sales and marketing - with the best logistics management available.
"We believe ICL is the best and its service and logistics infrastructure Will give customers the H't a deal Colin fhoudioot. Commodore » best possible back-up". F°,n md ***** ihe *ml9a warranty I A Wang spokesperson said the fo Dav,d ** ,a 19rn,ral mana9*r company had been invited to tender for the work but were not in a position to offer manufacturing and distribution needed by Commodore.
The firm - who were criticised by Amiga owners for delays in attending to faulty computers last Christmas - will continue to provide after sales service to existing owners.
Software mix for new bundle AN A1200 bundle featuring a selection of games and productivity software worth £310 will hit the streets before autumn's peak selling period, Commodore have confirmed.
The 049 Desktop Dynamite pack will come with programs developed to take advantage of the computer’s graphics capability, including two of the latest games.
Dennis the Menace and Oscar will accompany home productivity software Wordworth v2. Print Manager and Deluxe Paint 4 AGA.
"We decided that because the Amiga 1200 is really a mean piece of hardware we were not going to major on games per se,” said joint Commodore boss David Pleasance.
"We wanted to include software which somebody - whether they were buying for the first time or upgrading - would find a valuable piece of additional software."
Desktop Dynamite will replace all existing packs, including the £299 standalone A1200.

The £240 machine comes KX P202I: Panaionk cut printing nolie with 14K of memory, with 32K extra available as an option, and Epson LQ and IBM Proprintcr X24E emulations. It is supplied with IBM PC software but buyers can receive an Amiga driver by telephoning Panasonic on 0800 444220.
Budget power genlock arrives A SQFTWARE-independent genlock due for imminent release soon by Hama (0256 708110) is claimed to be ideal for hi-band and composite video signals.
The £299 Genlock 292 can feed Amiga signals, video signals, mixed Amiga and video signals or key Inverted mixed biy* nals into a video recorder with fade in or out.
And red, green and blue processing of the Amiga signal is possible by rotating control knobs on the device, which has a bandwidth of 10MHz.
Toaster will slay a Cray ANIMATION will take less time than ever before when US-based Newtek's Screamer 3D rendering engine is launched towards the end of this year.
That’s the claim from the developer, who say the device s four RISC processors will enable a Video Toaster system to deliver twice the 3D rendering power of a Cray 1 super computer.
It will operate at over 600 MIPS and by running each processor at 150MHz with both internal and external caches the Screamer will reach incredible speeds, Already Newtek's Video Toaster and Lightwave 3D animation system have generated 3D effects for television shows in the States, including Steven Spielberg’s SeaQuest DSV.
Screamer will cost US$ 9,995 and requires a Video Toaster workstation, which is for the time being only avail* able for NTSC displays.
I Atomox f saves disk space ATOMOX Data Packer is a new data compression utility written for Amiga owners who need to save disk space.
Its graphical interface enables users to load, pack and save files while a special extension will carry out similar functions within AM05 Professional.
The program's makers, Infinity Software, claim Atomix gives average space saving of more than 75 per cent.
Cost, £6.99 from Agamic Computers (08l- 542 7662).

Picture support for new Superbase THE next generation of database Superbase Personal is due for release on the Amiga soon, its British distributors Meridian Software have announced.
Sbase Personal 4 is compatible with the latest Amiga operating system and graphics and is said to offer a complete data management system for small business and personal needs.
It is completely different from earlier releases of the package and Meridian describe it as a cut-down version of the £299 Superbase Professional.
A video cassette recorder-like interface enables users to select fast forward or rewind easily, get the first, last, or next record and start or pause an index query of the filter operation.
The program supports sound files, IFF images, EPS clipart and text and number files, which can be stored and organised including a facility to create a picture data library.
Form letters and other mailshot material, personalised letters and mailing labels printed and reports can be put together from linked databases.
It will work on anv Amiga and cost £149.95. Meridian can be telephoned on 081-543 3500, while existing users looking to upgrade should contact US-based Oxxi on 0101 213 4271227.
AmiTek expand Amiga memory A MEMORY expansion board containing a battery-backed clock has just been added to AmiTek's range of products at Kent-based Silica Systems (081-3091111).
It gives A1200s up to 8Mb of memory and a maths coprocessor can be fitted to increase the speed of mathematically intense applications such as computer aided design.
"This new board follows the AmiTek tradition of offering high specifica-tion products at aggressive prices,” commented Silica spokesman Andy Leaning.
"AmiTek delayed the release of their board to ensure that they could offer end users a RAM board at the lowest possible AmiTek price." Pock more Unpopulated Costs memory Into £79.95, and with costs fluctuating following disasters at Far East production plants - which we reported last month - buyers should call Silica for memory prices.
Amiga takes video control AMIGA computers are behind a new video wall system just introduced by Watford- based audio-visual and multimedia specialists CD Interactive.
Expandaview enables a wall of up to 256 monitors to be built and, using specially- written software running on A 1200s, point of sale and point of information systems can be developed.
And another program running on an A4000 powers the video wall in sporting arenas, featuring an on-screen clock, scoring, messaging and realtime animations.
Among the first customers are Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, who will install two 256-monitor scoreboards at their Molyneux Stadium.
It will enable the club to display match information as well bringing in extra advertising revenue, A spokesman for CD Interactive told Amiga Computing that Amigas were chosen because the firm's software division of had been working with the computers for Several years.
Back to school with AMOS AMOS owners can now learn how to write educational programs with the help of AMOS in Education, the latest addition to Kuma Books range of publications.
According to Kuma it gives budding programmers all the information they need to produce software, from the planning to tips and tricks to make the program run smoothly.
It starts with full specifications, graphics and code for four educational games and then allows the reader to practice writing just the graphics and specifications for a fifth The last section gives a game's specifications and readers can add their own graphics and ideas before linking it to the main program.
Ult is very useful to be able to write programs which children can use at home and which will reinforce what is being learnt at school," said a Kuma spokesman.
AMOS gives people the opportunity to write educational programs for their children, brothers.
Sisters or friends."
AMOS in Education was written by Anne and Len Tucker, AMOS programmers who have produced several licenseware and commercial titles.
A coupon included in the £12.95 book enables buyers to send for a free disk containing finished programs, useful routines and source code to follow.
Suppliers to hold London mini-show A GROUP of Amiga peripheral and software suppliers have joined forces to hold a mini-computer show at the Novotel Hotel, Hammersmith in the next few weeks.

What's new CanDo gives - and takes away Denny Atkin looks over an enhanced authoring system, plus two programs for experimenters Fontastic celebration St. Louis-based Soft-Logik celebrated the end of the floods that have plagued the midwestern United States this year by acquiring world-wide distribution rights to the TypeSmith font design program, and have just released an enhanced version.
The biggest news in TypeSmith 2.0 is AutoTracIng: you can now load in a scanned image of a character (or a brush made from a bitmap font character) and TypeSmith will automatically create an outline version.
TypeSmith 2.0 now loads, edits, and saves bitmap as well as outline fonts.
Other new features include automatic tont-hinting. Clipboard support, the ability to cut and paste characters between two open fonts, and much-increased speed.
The upgrade is S50; the package retails for S199.95. Contact Soft-Logiks UK Sales office at 0628-784006. Or write Soft-Logik Publishing Limited. Broadway House, 21 Broadway, Maidenhead, Berkshire. SL6 1JK.
Inovatronics have once again upgraded and enhanced their CanDo authoring system. But along with the give came some take they removed one of CanDo's best features and made it an extra-cost item.
If you're not familiar with CanDo, it’s an application that lets you use a graphic interface and an easy-to*learn scripting language to create your own programs without having to learn all the gory details of programming the Amiga. It's remarkably powerful, and has actually been used to create commercial Amiga applications.
The new features help bring CanDo up to date with the latest Amigas, as well as adding some capabilities long-requested by CanDo programmers.
The biggest enhancement is AGA graphics support; CanDo now pulls up a requester which lets you seled from any of your Amiga's available graphics modes this should also allow you to create CanDo applications for cards like the Retina and Picasso II, which offer standard system ScreenModes requester entries.
Another big enhancement is the ability to play MOD music files (including 8- voice OCTAmed songs), with full control over tempo and volume.
The interface has been significantly cleaned up, making it easier to find functions and to perform formerly tedious operations such as moving a group of objects across the screen.
MORE SUPPORT Both CanDo programmers and users of CanDo applications will be happy to discover that Inovatronics has done away with their horrid file requester and added support for the system standard ASL requester. The Help function has been converted to an AmigaGuide file, and you can now add AmigaGuide Help text to your own CanDo applications.
There are other improvements, such as better Compugraphic and ColourFont support, and a built-in layout editor that allows you to flow text around irregular shapes The upgrade is only S25 for CanDo 2.0 users (European users need to add 510 for surface or 525 for air), which seems quite reasonable. However, there are are other things you should know. First, CanDo 2.5 requires a hard drive, 2MB of RAM, and AmigaDOS 2.04 or later. (Not a big deal, since the previous version really required a hard drive and lots of RAM to run smoothly.)
More signicantly, you can no longer use the stock CanDo package to create stand-alone applications. CanDo 2.0 and earlier included DeckBinder and DeckBrowser, utilities that would allow you to package your CanDo creations as self-running programs that you could give away to your friends or sell commercially.
InovaTronics now wants a $ 50 to $ 200 yearly licensing fee if you plan to distribute your CanDo applications commercially.
On the plus side, they will waive the licensing fee if you're creating a PD or shareware program, but you have to send them a copy of your application to get the special binder browser you'll need inconvenient, especially for European users.
However, the upgrade does look good.
If you want to create CanDo applications for AGA machines, it's definitely worth getting. If maintaining 1.3 compatibility is important, and if you don't want to go through the licensing hassle, you might just want to stick with CanDo 2.0. Inovatronics can be reached at (214) 340-
4991.
Chance to try some new Mega tricks The recursively named MegageM have announced two new products that will appeal to the Amiga user who's a bit of an experimenter By appearances. MegageM's Rpaint is a fuli-leatured non-HAM ECS paint program that supports up to 64 colours in autoscrolling resolutions up to 16000x16000. All the standard paint-program commands are available from pull-down menus or key equivalents, and the program supports scalable outline fonts. Sounds pretty average, right?
Wrong Underneath the standard user interface lies fullblown Arexx support for all the commands. At the simplest level, this means you can use Rpaint as an easy way to display graphics created by programs wntten in the Aroxx scripting language included with AmigaDOS 2.04 and greater Since Arexx doesn't have any graphics commands built in. This adds a lot of flexibility to the language. But even more useful is the capability to control Rpainfs display from other Arexx-sawy programs.
For instance, you could write an Arexx macro to read data from a Professional Calc spreadsheet and draw a chart or graph of the data on Rpaint's screen; you could wnte a script to draw images in real-time, controlled from a multimedia program like CanDo or AmigaVision; or simply use it to create user-controlled slideshows Rpaint can automatically create a script from your drawing actions, which you can then go in and modify and enhance this feature is great for creating interactive presentations.
This programmable paint program requires AmigaDOS
2. 04 or greater and retails tor $ 79.95 (add $ 8 shipping to
Europe.)
Is your biggest complaint about your Amiga the fact that it has a bit of a two-dimensional personality?
MegageM’s StereoPro Amiga is a joystick connector interface for LCD 3D glasses which is a plug-compatible replacement for the old X-SPecs 3-D glasses. Any program which supports X-Specs, such as VistaPro or Imagine, will work fine with StereoPro, producing amazing 3-D effects Packed with StereoPro is a disk full of 3D utilities. The neatest of these is MegageM's own SPX. A program which lets you create real-time, animated objects in three dimensions via Arexx This double-buffered animation systems fully supports PAL; some impressive sample scripts are included to get you started. Perhaps
one of the neatesrapplications is using StereoPro in conjunctions with the Animatrix Modeler ($ 99.95 from Dubois Animation, 405*348’4670) you can actually create 3D objects for program like Imagine and UghtWave in three dimensions!
StereoPro retails for $ 225. Including one set of 3D glasses. The interface has a port for a second set of glasses, which can be bought for $ 150. StereoPro and Rpaint are available from MegageM. 1903 Adria. Santa Maria, CA 93454; (805) 349-1104. - Amiga Computing November 1993 f 6 Another great offer from a manufacturer you can trust

Manufacturers of quality products since 1979 Ever since (he launch of the CD32, the Amiga world seems divided into two distinct camps.
L) n the one hand we have the amazed but happy campers who an*
simply thankful that the big C seem to have finally hit the
hardware nail right on the head.
Unfortunately just across the grass at the waterlogged end of the muddy field of argument sit the very unhappy campers. These boys actually go camping on the off- chance that it will rain - and more importantly, rain on others.
With many so-called Amiga fans seemingly determined to suffocate Commodore’s latest creation at birth, AC offers up a few home truths To be fair, such perversions aren't merely remnants of unhappy childhoods. In fact the perpetrators have now become the targets as Commodore suffer the soggy wrath of the cynics who are only happy when pouring scorn on Commodore past and present.
The world beating CD32 To be honest I've spent the odd weekend at this particular beauty spot, along with most Amiga enthusiasts.
With the farcical and occasionally dubious marketing strategy the big C adopted during '92, even the most devoted Amiga fans must be at least a little disillusioned at the constant revisions to the range- First the A500 vanished, then the A500Plus and the A600, all jockeying for position and finally duthped in favour of the A1201). Obviously nobody wants to impair the progress of the machine, however a slightly more open-handed approach to the punters wouldn't have gone amiss.
CUSTOMER LOYALTY After all, leaving loyal cash-carrying Amiga fans with the feeling of being duped doesn't exactly instil confidence or customer loyalty - both key factors in halting the tide of Segas, Nintendos and game-playing Pcs which, according to the pundits, will mean the inevitable demise of the Amiga.
With the opposition in mind it is perhaps the ideal time to highlight why the new CD-ROM will prove the cynics wrong. Although without doubt the biggest bite from the game-playing cake has been scoffed by Sega and Nintendo, both systems have one major problem.
As I'm sure you're aware, both jealously guard their stranglehold on software development. If you're not in some way affiliated to either company there's no way to axle software for their respective consoles.
After all, if you’re in the business of churning out hardware at cost and then reiving almost entirely for profit on subsequent software sales, why share your hard-earned profits with others?
Although great news for the corporate giants, what happens to the hordes of software developers left out of the Japanese duopoly?
The Amiga (and even the ST) markets - large and established - are the obvious havert. However, like the corporate stranglehold of the consoles, disk-based software also has its problems - primarily the constant jolly rogering of the pirates- Thanks to piracy, a game need only reach 30,000 sales to become a big seller.
With over 15 million Amigas in the UK that’s a pretty graphic illustration of the problem. However the CD32 faces no piracy problem and as a amsequence is a software developer's dream. It can outperform, outpace and undercut any console, and most important of all, it's accessible to anyone who wants to code for it.
Almost regardless of what happens elsewhere, it's the It can outperform, outpace and undercut any console appeal of the CD32 to the software houses which will ensure its success. An old adage states that "software maketh the machine" and if that machine beats the opposition, all the better.
All it takes to ensure success is one "must have" product. Having seen the CD32 and FMV in action I'm convinced it's only a matter of time before the prospect of 100 per cent piracy-free profit inspires a software house into producing a work of genius.
As for the PC threat, I'm far from convinced there's as much to worry about as many think. Admittedly a quick bash on a 486 33DX as it puts the latest flight sim through its paces can be pretty impressive.
However the salesman will certainly avoid the little things, like cost, ease of use, storage, add-ons and so on.
For a start most decent IX? Games are only at their best on am In addition if you're even partially fond of sound, fancy a monitor and require a hard disk that's capable of holding more than a couple of games they'll be very little change out of £1,300 - assuming you've thrown in a CD-ROM.
After all that cash and the absolute misery associated with setting up any IX? You'll be the proud owner of a shiny new machine based on 20-year-old technology that has just ( 40k of base memory.
Of course you could always save £1,000, get 2Mb of active memory, more colours and superior sound. However that will mean you'll miss out on the idiosyncrasies of DOS, programming your mouse and running Windows - alias Workbench
1. 2 - assuming you've got enough additional memory that is.
Although AC has done its fair share of Commodore slapping in the past, the blow for the CD32 deserves to land squarely between the shoulder blades rather than across the chops.

A,sk c°ota te-Gnabied "!“* fhal W As well as the Amos 3D Object Modeller, we have included Amos on the disk. Due to their size, both have been archived. In order to use them you will need two freshly formatted disks. Boot from the CoverDisk and type in the command:
Eiecute Create then follow the instructions that appear on your screen.
When you boot from the disk labelled Object Modeller, a 3D demo is displayed to whet your appetite. To enter the object modeller, press any key.
Amos 3D uses the concept of shelves as places to store objects. Although you can't see them, there an? 12 shelves. At the top of the screen there are five which contain simple shapes known as primitives.
Directly below these there are another five for you to store your own objects.
Between these ten and the control panel mouse- Copy each of the five primitives in turn to one of the work shelves, and examine them using the rotate and zoom facilities.
Notice that only two of them are 3D objects. The flat ones are intentionally so and are useful for creating spaceships the left mouse button to select both a source object and a destination shelf then click on the copy tool.
Move the cube to the left-hand work area then click on the rotate button. In order to rotate the cube you must keep the button held down while moving the modelling Creative there are two more shelves which is where objects are manipulated and constructed.
To get 3 feel for the screen layout, hold down the left mouse button and move the pointer around the screen. This will result in the shelves being displayed as boxes.
To move an object between shelves, use Amos 3D commands Having constructed some objects you will be itching to incorporate them into your Amos programs. It is beyond the scope of this article to explain how to program in Amos and about the additional background information explaining 3D computer graphics.
However, for those readers who have already acquired and digested this information here are the all important Amos 3D commands: The display Td SCREEN HEIGHT n .set the 3D system screen height to n raster lines Td REDRAW ...draw all currently visible objects and any background Jd CLS .clear the 3D display area with extra speed Invoking objects Td OBJECT n,name,x,y,z,A,B.C .creates an object instance based on a previously loaded object definition where: it - object number name-object name x,yA -

To see what we mean, rotate a cube so that three sides are clearly visible then use the horizontal stretch tool to distort it.
Having done that, rotate the object and you will see that it is no longer rectangular.
Pyramid The easiest way to align an object with the screen axes is to use the tools provided. It is possible to align an object with the XZ plane, YZ plane and XY plane. As an example we are going to align the pyramid with each of these in turn, so copy this primitive to one of the work shelves.
Rotate it so that the square base is visi

to zoom in.

Now copy the cube to a work space and we will show- you how to deform objects by stretching and squashing them.
Click on the Plus button so that comer node markers are displayed at the comers ai the cube.
Now hold down the horizontal retching button and move the mouse to
c. ongate the cube into a rectangular box.
The Vertical Stretch button works in exactly the same way.

until the base is highlighted. Now click on the XZ-align tool
with the left mouse button and the base will face upwards.
To make it face downwards, click on the button using the right mouse button.
The YZ and XY align tools work in the same way but you might like to play around with them just to become familiar with the way they orientate objects.
Rather than distort a whole object, as described earlier, you may want to select one of its edges or comer points and pull it away from the object, thereby stretching one area of the shape.
If it is not already in a work area, copy the cube primitive into one then click on the object face selector. Click on the line selector to choose a line then use the pull tool to move the chosen line in relation to the rest of the object.
This tool varies in sensitivity along its length, the up arrow end being least sensitive. Moving a vertex, rather than an edge, is also achieved using the Pull tool.
The procedure is the same as with edges, except that the chosen line must have the point that you want to move as one of its endpoints. Having ensured this, click on the point selector to highlight your chosen node then manipulate it using th? Pull tool.
Complex Up to this point we have only been working with simple primitive shapes- Now we are going to take a look at joining objects to form more complex models.
Copy the pyramid and cube primitives to separate work areas.
Select the square pyramid base and one of the cube sides using the object face selector. Click on the pyramid first, then the cube and finally on the Glue tool. A copy of the pyramid should now be appended to the cube, leaving the original pyramid intact.
The new shape will look a little bit strange because the object modeller does not automatically calculate which faces should be hidden. In order to do this, you will have to click on the Precedence Culling tool.

Carter Requires: Workbench 1.3 or above This has to be one of
the best games ever submitted for the CoverDisk by one of our
readers. As with all platformers, the object is to roam around
screens collecting objects while avoiding the bad guys.
In this case, there are two types of object, rings and green balls, The balls are worth more and collecting them will result in access to the pinball-influenced bonus levels.
Success in these will allow power-ups in the form of faster movement and the ability to jump higher. Ultimately there is an end of game guardian to beat in the form of a spaceship.
Before starting a game there are a number of user-configurable options which arc changed by moving the joystick to the left and right. The most useful is the number of lives, which may be increased to a maximum of seven. Anyone with an accelerator or an A1200 will find the Game Speed option invaluable and should set it to 50 per cent. There are even facilities to alter the speed of gameplay in the bonus levels and to disable inertia.

Ju j r:.~ . • .11 The example H before gapi are added panel is a column of buttons. You could be forgiven for thinking that the top one is the letter A but in fact it is a picture of a floppy disk.
Clicking on this button will reveal the load and save panel which shows the current path, the files contained therein and three buttons. The leftmost one is the load button, the middle is the save button while the big red X is used to indicate that you want to cancel the operation.
These operations can be applied to any of the seven user shelves simply by selecting the desired shelf then loading or saving an object.
There are a considerable number of examples in the examples director)' and, as an example of disk operations, we are going to load an object.
Disk Operation First we must tell the program which shelf the object is to be loaded into. Click on the leftmost work area then click on the disk operation button. Double click on the examples drawer to open it then use the scroll arrows to find the file called Amiga.
Selecting it and clicking on the load button will automatically take you back to the main control screen once the image has loaded.
If you want to save an image, follow the same procedure but specify a name by typing it in rather than selecting one from the list - otherwise you will overwrite an existing file. You may find it useful to store your objects on a separate disk, or on your hard drive if you have one.
To do this you should click on the path requester, use the Delete key to erase the existing path, and enter the disk name followed by a colon. Alternatively, you could just enter the logical name of the device.
Sometimes when making models, the desired effect is to leave a small gap between blocks to further enhance the 3D effect. Imagine two parallel columns that are joined by a cross member to form the letter H. If the cross member is a small distance away from the uprights, its ends will be visible when the object is rotated. To create this effect, we need to join the appropriate faces then move the blocks apart a little. In our next example, we will build this model and show you how to define and move groups of blocks.
Copy the cube into one of the work areas and use the stretching tools to turn it into a long box.

- elongated it doesn't really matter. We are going to make the
letter H by joining the cross member to one upright, then add
the second upright.
We will use the box that you have just siade as the cross piece. To make the first upright, you could either repeat the procedure or copy it to the other work area and use that as a starting point.
Having done that, use the face selector to highlight one side of the upright and one end of the crosspiece. Click on the upright followed by the crosspiece then on the Glue tool. To rectify the image, dick on the Precedence Culling tool.
Before selecting the face on the other end of the crosspiece, we have to tell Amos 3D which block it is contained in.
Click On the block selector gadget until the crosspiece is coloured in, then use the face selector to select the exposed end face.

All that remains to complete the solid tetter H is to click on the upright followed by the partial H, glue them together and rectify the result with the Precedence tool.
To make the crosspiece look as though it is floating, we need to define it and one of the uprights as a group and move them away from the second upright. Then define the crosspiece and the second upright as a group and move these away from the first upright.
Using the block selector, highlight the left upright then click on the Plus button.
Now do the same for the cross member to add it to the group. Select the right upright and highlight the face that is in contact with the crosspiece, then use the Face Relative Normal tool.
This tool is the middle one in the group of buttons that resembles a hat stand. To render the object as a solid again, de-select the block and face selections by clicking on the red crosses. The model is almost complete now - all that remains is to repeat the above procedure for the other upright.
Virus Checker Author: John Veldthuis Requires: Workbench
1. 3 or above Viruses are nasty self-replicating programs that
affect ever)1 Amiga owner at one time or another. They are
written by malicious people out to prove how clever they are
by writing programs to crash other people's machines and
overwrite their valuable data with silly messages.
Clearly, these so-called programmers are nothing more than morons with sad lives - let's face it, they must be if they have nothing better to do with their time!
There is nothing clever about writing viruses, they are trivial to code and just as easy to detect with handy utilities such as BootX and Virus Checker.
Protection The safest way to avoid a virus attack is to keep your disks write protected, by moving the protect tab so that a hole is visible, and only write enabling disks when you are going to save data.
Having said that, every system is vulnerable to viruses no matter how many precautions are taken. To further reduce the risk, we advise that a checker, such as the one on this month’s CoverDisk, is used to check all incoming disks whether from friends, PD libraries or off the cover of your favourite Amiga magazine. Most ?
Sticklt Author: Andy Dean Requires: Workbench 2 or 3 Are you one of those people whose life is ruled'by little yellow sticky pieces of paper with reminders scrawled on them? Even if they don't rule your life, there is no doubt that they are one of the most useful items of stationary ever invented.
They aren't perfect though, as every once in a while the)’ have an annoying tendency to drop off your monitor (or wherever you usually stick diem).
Sticklt has been designed as a computerised version of the yellow peril and allows you to stick notes anywhere on your Workbench screen. Each note appears in its own little window and can be edited by activating the window with the left mouse button, then pressing the right one.
Apart from the edit window, there are some simple editing options available from the menu bar. These allow you to cut, copy and paste text between notes and save changes to disk.

Thus month we bring you not one but two new versions.
Ameko is a cat penned into his own window who tries to catch the mouse pointer.
When the pointer is to one side of the window, he scratches in desperation. If there is no mouse movement, Ameko quickly tires, wipes his whiskers, yawns then falls asleep.
Ameko AGA performs exactly the same as Ameko but includes support for Workbench 3. When run from the CoverDisk he will appear in outline form but if the number of Workbench colours is set to 16, Ameko will be coloured in. Many thanks to Carl for writing this version especially for Amiga Computing.
Reputable libraries and magazines check for viruses before distributing their disks but occasionally a new one slips through the net.
Before booting any freshly acquired disk, it is well worth examining it before it is used to boot your Amiga.
Bootblock The vast majority of viruses are written to the bootblock and are only activated when the disk is used to boot an Amiga. It is therefore a good idea to use non- bootable disks for storing your data because if one becomes infected with a bootblock virus it is very unlikely result in any damage.
Another point worth mentioning is that commercial games usually have custom bootblocks as part of their copy protection, and this will cause most checkers to suspect a virus. When it comes to game disks there are two golden rules:
1. Never install a bootblock on a commercial game disk 2 Always
keep game disks write protected.
Also included on the CoverDisk is a script to install Virus Checker on hard drives. In order to use it, boot from your hard drive then insert the Amiga Computing disk and click on the InstallVC icon.
Finally, in order to keep Virus Checker up to date, the author needs you to send new viruses to him. If you suspect that you have found a new one, please do just that so that other Amiga owners may be protected from it.
Also, although this program is not shareware, we are sure the author would not refuse a donation if you find his program useful.
Aroach Author: Stefan Winterstein Requires: Workbench 2 or 3 Aroach is one of the funniest Workbench hacks that we have ever seen! Clicking on the program's icon results in ten animated cockroaches running around the screen. They move randomly, scurrying in search of somewhere to shelter.
When they find a window they will hide under it and stay there until it is moved or resized. To stop them running around, close the Aroach window or, if you fancy a bit of fun, use the left mouse button to splatter them.
If you run the program from the icon, it may not be apparent that the cockroaches are present because the disk and shell windows fill the entire screen. To see them, therefore, you will have to reduce their size by using the resize gadget.

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.
How to make a backup H uriiu : »' 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: (OPT COVEIDISK27:UTILITICS fRED TO WOSKBEHCBl.3 FIEO ALL Alternatively, you can dick 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 disk, then either click once on the CoverDisk icon and select Duplicate, or select Copy from the Workbench menu, or open CLI Shell and type: DISKCOPT FROH DfQ: TO OFO: 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.
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: New readers may have difficulties using our CoverDisk, so we have included this page to help you out.
Below we explain how to copy files from one disk to another, how to copy the entire CoverDisk and how to de-archive programs. None Copying individual files COPT directory) TO Cnetfdisk) ALL 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 "y" or ¦iT accordingly.
Your computer wiH 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 bool with the CoverDisk write- enabled to perform the dearchiving process.
Workbench 3 If you have a Workbench 3 machine, don't worry - most if not all of the programs on the CoverDisk will work on your machines.
If the program is specifically designed to work with Workbench 3 then you may have to copy the program to your hard drive or Workbench disk using the process described earlier on this page.

With the Amiga moving inexorably towards a 32'bit architecture across the entire range, power applications are now becoming accessible to all. In the past 68000 machines meant complex modelling was strictly the domain of power users - or the very patient. Now that's all changing and with careful modelling and intelligent scene design even a basic A12Q0 is capable of respectable rendering times and photo-realistic end results.
With the plethora of painf packages and assorted art-onented programs already flooding the market, what's the big appeal of software which can sometimes take hours and even days to generate such results?
In short, the answer is total creative freedom and the ability to control every aspect of the image or animation you design. On a more esoteric level, raytrac- ing provides the tantalising first look at the virtual world which in time will become the new frontier of human experience.
If you can forgive the pseudo-intellectual ramblings it's true there’s definitely something vaguely magical about generating your own 3D universe.
Any conventional artist usually has both the imagination and the physical skill required to turn the ordinary into the exceptional.
This obviously isn't a problem for those who have an abundance of both - alas that's where most of us encounter the abyss which lias between the mind of an artistic athlete and the physical skill of a couch potato, Fortunately, when it comes to raytrac- ing. The software usually takes care of the physical skill by drawing, colouring and shading your creations while the user need only supply the imagination However inspiration isn't the only thing needed to create a great image, For a start there's the sometimes painful process of mastering three dimensions - not an easy task, especially when
you're forced to confront the problem through a stnctly 2D window.
A perfect illustration of the clash between a 2D interface and a 3D model is the mouse. Although ideal for navigating the 2D world of a paint package, the extra dimension essential to raytracing can really highlights its limitations.
Which is the program's fairly poor antialiasing.
In addition, the accompanying manual is aLso a disappointment as it potters along in a narrative rather than informative style thereby making comprehension of this already complex and somewhat idiosyncratic package even more daunting.
Still, even with these drawbacks Imagine2 offers a degree of modelling, mapping and animating freedom that can only be matched by Real3D v2 - a program which is at least three times By nature a mouse is strictly a 2D animal, perfectly happy to slide back and fourth or left to right. But lift it off the mat and it's game over. As a result, one of the three dimensions always alludes us. Hence the need for instant access to all three.
In certain cases this means the software will provide a tri-view with each window looking directly along its own dimension, while others offer a single window - sometimes in the form of a perspective - which can toggle between the various dimensions via hotkeys.
AWARENESS In fact, awareness of the X.Y and 2 is essential to almost every aspect of 3D modelling. Aside from simpfy building models, creating realism often necessitates the use of brushmaps. Textures and so on. All of which require accurate placement - again, spacial awareness is essential in order to place the elemont you want exactly where it's required.
Assuming you've mastered the necessary modelling and mapping skills, the artistic battle continues. Aside from imagination and modelling talent you'll also need to double*up as a lighting engineer as well as taking to the director’s chair, placing objects, deciding camera positions, applying your lighting talents and specifying the movement or transformation of every element within the scene.
Although it's true that the physical skill has been taken on by the raytracer, it's more than made up for by additional mental effort on the part of the user.
If you're planning to attempt raytracing. Don't make the assumption that the software will in some way do all the hard work on your behalf. Like any artform.
Mastering the discipline is a labour of love which takes just as long as any other to perfect.
With the huge array of renders and raytracers flooding the market picking the right package has become increasingly difficult. A factor that's been compounded by the degree of excellence inherent within all of the recent releases In a nutshell the choice boils down to a difference between ease of use.
Realism and animating potential. Obviously thqre are other factors such as speed and flexibility but these key factors invariably tend to sway the average buying decision, Paul Austin provides the ultimate buyers’ guide to all things 3D To be honest, I must admit to being biased towards Imagine courtesy of prolonged use. However I've also had the opportunity to use every package on the market - which 1 suppose makes my allegiance an even greater testament to the staying power of this truly excellent package.
Like many modem programs, Imagine employs a modular design with various editors each handling a Specific aspect of the design process.
For the newcomer this can be a rather confusing approach but in time an underlying logic is revealed, thereby making the program one of the most intuitive raytracers on the market However it must be said that Imagine2 isn't without its faults, most obvious of as expensive and much more difficult to master.
In a nutshell, Imagine2 is probably best described as the ultimate enthusiast's package, capable of startling animation and photo-realistic imitation of anything you care to create.
However be warned, there's a rather steep learning curve that demands dedication, but in return the package can provide award-winning results.
Unlike the other packages, Caligari is a renderer, and not a raytncer. This simply means that objects will reflect the sky and the ground but not other objects in the scene. However Caligari does offer an environment mapping system which can emulate rather than replicate the efforts of a true raytracer.
In practice, the end result is that real world emulation doesn't match up to the others - but to be fair that isn't what Caligari is intended (or.
In short, Caligari is the ultimate corporate animation generator.
Thanks to the program’s relatively basic mapping and rendering options, it will never match up when it ComeS to clever images.
However that's probably a fair price to pay for the best modelling and animation environment on the market. If you're purely interesting in graphics that will animate beautifully but always look computer generated. Caligari is the perfect combination of ease of use and power.
The actually modelling process is by far the most intuitive with a truly excellent working environment combined with a large collection of tools, most notable of which is freeform deformation, a process which allows organic shapes to be extruded fmm basic primitives extTemelv easily.
As for animation, the package is again unsurpassed when it comes to ease of use.
Unlike most of the opposition, Caligari employs a hierarchical anim format which allows very easy construction of complex animation with total control over every aspect.
Real3D Classic Formerly known as Real 3D Turbo - prior to the release of Real3D v2 - RealTD Classic was the main contender against the onslaught of Imaginc2. Being a convert from ReaDD to Imagine, I can see the relative benefits of both systems.
Although each is employed by professionals with equal relish I'd say that Imagine would be more to the taste of the purist who wants believability and doesn't mind investing time and effort to get it, while Rea!3D Classic provides a somewhat easier method of producing ?
Very high quality corporate logo material, which although excellent can lack the subtlety of a similar Imagine image.
The primary cause of this slightly artificial look is Real's dependence on primitives, a feature which tends to lend to a slightly logo-esque look to the final image or anim - a factor which isn't helped by the relatively basic mapping options which don't allow the multiple maps of Imagine, Aladdin 4D or Real3D v2.
Animation is again slightly lacking in comparison to Imagine, primarily due to the added flexibility offered by the Cycle editor within Imagine.
However it must be stressed that Real Classic is by no means basic when it comes to animation and when this is combined with the best anti-aliasing on the market, the program's appeal for business applications is pretty hard to ignore.
Aladdin 4D Clank tan itHI produce Although very respectable as an all- rounder it must be said Aladdin doesn't justify its rather inflated asking price of £255 - a figure which is roughly double that of both Imagine2 and Real 3D Classic.
In addition to the problem of finance, modelling is fairly basic in comparison to its counterparts with the most damning blow being struck by the total lack of freeform editing - an option offered by all its counterparts.
On the animation side it's pretty much the same story with gixxt but not spectacular results which lack the intuitive touches offered by Caligari and to a lesser extent Real and Imagine.
Having said that, Aladdin isn't without strong points, the most notable being the generation of gases - a feature which can produce very impressive static and animated images. However, as seems to be case throughout Aladdin there is a compromise - which in the case of gases is extremely slow rendering.
Continuing in an animated vein it, must be said that mapping Isn't one of the program's faults thanks to an unlimited number of textures which can be morphed and animated as and when required - a feature which can only be matched by Real3Dv2.
All in all, the bottom line points to a pretty good package which unfortunately suffers badlv when it comes to value for money when compared to the majority of the opposition.
Real3D v2 Although the package is easily the most powerful program around, it's very much an acquired taste, which beginners especially may not find to their lildng.
Even with the imminent release of Imagine3, it's almost certain that Real3D v2 will remain the most technically advanced package on the market.
However its complexity is something which haunts the new Real. Unless you're very well versed in the finer points of ray- tracing and boast at least a working knowledge of programming and higher mathematics, Real3D v2 can be very difficult to handle.
To be fair, the quality of output and overall potential of the program is spectacular with some truly amazing animation tools which can make solid objects swim like fish or bowling pins scatter in accordance with tire Laws of physics.
If you have the £400 asking price, modelling experience and the six months needed to master the package, it simply out-guns the opposition. The question is Do you really need that kind of power?
If so, will the program let you apply it?
?
Support software Although all of the programs listed provide various utilities for converting 2D images, importing fonts, playing ammaitons and so on there’s a booming business in 3D support.
As mentioned earlier, actually modelling objects can be a tricky and time-consuming, However with a huge number of raytracing enthusiasts worldwide all beavering away, there are a lot of models already out there.
If you have access to a modem, the door to a world ot Iree-ish objects is wide open.
Most bulletin boards have dedicated 3D file areas full of hints and tips and more important large object collections, all yours for the price of a phone call and perhaps in exchange for uploading some of your own creations, in order to achieve the necessary upload ratio.
If you don’t have access to a modem it’s worth a dose look through the PD libraries as a few companies specialise in 3D modelling and offer a huge repertoire of objects to suit a wide variety of raytracers and modellers Pixel 3D Pro In some cases you may come across objects that will be in your raytracer's proprietary format. However, if not some form of conversion is essential. In such circumstances. Pixel 3D Pro is the ideal tool, offenng a conversion process .enabling the vast majority of programs to share their creations.
However, be warned - Pixel Pro isn’t without its faults and will quite regularly overtook vital parts of an object during a file conversion leaving gaping holes which need subsequent repair.
In addition to object conversion, the program will also convert 2D images into 3D - with an extrusion depth and style of your choice. Admittedly this may seem at odds with the argument that 2D drawing skills aren't required for raytradng, but sometimes 2D graphics can make all the difference to a 3D image.
A perfect example is a poster on a virtual wall or perhaps a label around a can ot beans - without the assistance of brushmaps.
Realistic results would be almost impossible within most packages.
In the case of Pixel 3D Pro, 2D drawing skills or perhaps scans could be used to make a very com- I AMIGA 1200 PACKS

Apparently release has been delayed because the authors were hard at work on a PC version which 1$ now shipping. With the PC obstacle removed, attention has turned once again to the Amiga, and if all goes to plan you should find the definitive review in next month s AC - but for the time being, whet your appetite on the new features... One of the biggest frustrations when setting up an Imagine scene is the inability to move the camera in real-time thereby avoiding the guesswork suffered at present. This annoying limitation has now be replaced with a real-time camera view, which can even
transform your interactive adjustments into a smooth spline path for use within animations.
Like Real3D v2, imagine3 promises bones and Kinematics as part of its animating repertoire. Thanks Imagine3 to bones, objects can now be animated without the need for joints - while kinematics provide real world emulation as connected objects interact.
An entirely new object makes its debut entitled the Font and Image Editor, designed specifically for the flying logo fraternity. As well a normal and Compugraphic fonts. PostScript is also supported with B-splines providing facet-free end results.
Another big improvement is brush and texture tracking which allows textures to stick to their polygons and not just simply slide over the surface during scaling, morphing and so on.
IMPROVEMENTS At last a proper skin that will actually appear pari of the object it surrounds! Although not a problem for the beginner, the Inability to access individual objects within a group in the stage editor is a real pain whon animating.
Fortunately this has also been revised in the new version - a small but hugely significant update for serious animators.
Yet another Imagine niggle appears to have been put to the sword thanks to motion graphics, a system capable of controlling speed within a path.
In the past, acceleration control was strictly limited to the beginning and end of a path, now control can be applied throughout the flight movement.
The available modelling tools have also seen some additions in the form of deformations such as twist, taper, bend and shear - all old news In relation to Real3D. But nevertheless a welcome addition to Imagine3.
Yet another long awaited feature is the inclusion of macros - which again have long been a part of Real3D. However their presence adds the finishing touch of automation to Imagine s excellent collection of modelling tools.
On the output side there have been some fairly dramatic improvements, most important of which has to be much improved anti-aliasing - an element of the program that's been the bane of earlier versions.
As far as the interface is concerned it appears most things will remain fairly similar to its predecessors with the exception of a new row of user buttons along the bottom each editor window.
The Forms Editor has also seen some much- needed attention in the form of magnetism, plus there's some brand new post production tools, support for sound, field rendering, a particle animation system. Alpha channel support, depth of field plus an infinite number of maps per object.
Does lack one element for successful ray- tracing.
As standard the A1200 doesn't come with an FPU or maths co-processor.
Without an FPU any raytracing, even on a fast CPU, will take much longer than is necessary.
Raytracing by nature is entirely mathematical, requiring enormous number crunching power in order to attain reasonable speeds, and as a consequence adding an FPU to your machine would be money well spent.
In addition, storage can be almost as In short, it's a truly professional package that demands as much time as it does cash
- definitely not recommended for beginners.
Hard facts During the intro, the mov e towards 32-bit architecture was heralded as opening the raytracing door to all with an A1200 or above.
In fact, although a vast improvement on the old 16-bit machines, the A1200 Support software plex modelling job much easier. For example to model the British Isles would be painful to say the least using polygons or Boolean operations. However thanks to Pixel 3D Pro, the r-vape could be drawn or more likely scanned, converted into a suitable format and extruded automatically, complete with the colouring of your choice. A user-defined bevel could even be applied on the edges to produce that glossy, corporate look.
It's certainly true that most raytracers offer at least some 2D to 3D extrusion tools but none match the flexibility on offer from PixelProXL. A perfect example is the ability to interrogate the colour information of a 2D IFF and then automatically scale the extrusion according to the relative brightness ol the shapes within the image.
A good example is a model created by our editor Stevie Kennedy, who required a myriad of buttons as part of a control panel. In any raytracer creating, sizing, copying and placing each individual element would have taken an age.
Thanks to PixelPro the whole process was complete in a matter of minutes, requiring only the most rudimentary drawing skills.
Alternative Textures Although objects are the most obvious commodity when it comes to raytracing, backdrops or brushmaps are also very useful to add that touch or realism to your rendenngs. At the forefront of texture business come those loveabte chaps at Alternative Image with their collection of high quality. 24-bit scans featuring old favountes like marble, wood, sky and soon.
For Real users the collection also has the added bonus of some excellent tutorial files
- with graphic examples - showing how to get the very best from
Real3D Classic, including a guide to creating the mysterious
Real3D water effect.
RaceTVace Although it's a fairly elderly package. Alternative Image have limited stocks of a more ?
GRAPHICS Support software basic variation on the PixelPro theme entitled RaceTrace Although a tad rough and ready, the package offers similar 2 to 3D IFF conversion with the option to extrude according to colour - just like PixelPro However it must be stressed RaceTrace requires more effort on the part of the user with stnctty k -res IFFs often requmng much more editing to avoid the dreaded jaggies.
Big a problem as speed, hence the need for a hard disk - in fact many raytracers will only operate from a hard disk.
On ACA machines there's no real need for a dedicated display device but having said that almost everyone will need some form of image processing.
In this area there’s a wide choice with an ADPro and ProControl combination being the ideal choice - especially for would-be animators.
If however you're more interested in statics, either ImageFX or ImageMr are ideal being a good deal cheaper while still providing an impressive array of special effects and processing options.
However, dunng the long editing process you can always console yourself with the thought of all the money you've saved over buying Pixel Pro - and just like its pricey but powerful counterpart, RaceTrace supports all the major packages and 3D file formats.
PowerFonts Another impressive 2 to 3D converter entitled PowerFonts otters an alternative to the pricey talents of Pixel Pro, but as the name suggest the package is restricted to font conversion.
Uke 2D extrusion, most modellers support some form of font conversion, however very few do a sufficiently accurate job for commercial use.
Powerfonts, however, provides arguably the best font extrusion, bevelling and italicising options available thanks to a no-nonsense interface that does the job without the whistles and bells offered by other programs. • Although I've only had access to the Real3D Classic version, support is planned for the majonty of raytracors and should be available by the time you read this article.
Texture City If the Alternative textures isn't enough, the Texture City collection offers an even wider range of textures with literally hundreds of images all in 736 x 580 severe overscan.
The collection is available on disk in various sets with approximately 20 images per set. Each set is shipped as 24-bit Jpegs with a Jpeg-to-IFF decompresser included In addition a Browser allows miniature previews of the entire collection. Although rather pricey, the images are excellent and more importantly build into a varied library encompassing animal, earth, FX. Rock, marble, granite, metal, scenic, textiles and wood If you’re working commercially Texture City could prove invaluable.
Price: Price; Essence *1 and 2 Without doubt the best third-party support has to be that for Imagine, with arguably the most exciting add-on being the Essence collection of mathematical textures. Unlike brushmaps the Essence textures can be edited to produce variations on a theme.
Price: Price; Price: Product: Price: _ Price: Product: Better still, thanks to their mathematical basis they never pixelise, no matter how close you go in on the image. In addition there's a variety of styles including both bump and altitude maps - again all completely user definable. In short, if you’re serious about Imagine, Essence - in both its forms - Is an absolute must.
CydeMan One of the great mystenes of Imagine is its rather idiosyncratic Cycle Editor. Although immensely powerful when mastered, it can be very daunting for the beginner.
Because cycle objects aren't essential for baste animation, the whole area of creating cycle objects does fend to be overlooked. As a consequence. CycleMan offers not only a complete human model but also an insight into the finer points of creating your own objects.
Although a bit pricey, it does offer a useful pool of body parts as well as complete running and walking cycles which can be dropped directly into your scene.
Understanding Imagine 2 Alongside Essence in the essential Imagine add-on list comes Steven Worley's excellent Understanding Imagine 2 reference manual. One of the biggest hurdles for any Imagine newcomer is the rather confusing manual, hence the release of Steven Worley's masterpiece.
Not only does it describe ever feature of the program but also offers hints, tips and design strategies which allow you to get the very best from your investment.
If you've got Imagine, get a copy of Understanding Imagine 2 before anything else - it will save you months of frustration.

Tlx Bciter uv loo So, you want to move into the 21 st Century and be a part of the information age? Let comms guru Phil South give you a line on the best in Amiga comms hardware Choosing a modem is tricky at best and downright hazardous at worst. It’s not so much which ones you should be looking at. But a case of how little or how many facilities you need, or more accurately what you can get away with!
Sure a 2,400 baud modem is good, but do you need more speed? Do you need fax facilities? Do you need HST like you need a hole in the head?
It's not so much the size of your modem but how often you use it. If you’re a real comms nut and get frustrated by the fact that most of the really hot items on BBSs take about 68 minutes to download at 2,400. Then you need a fast modem and no mistake.
If you log on to one service once a month to read a lew messages and download some small utilities and stuff, then obviously It doesn't matter what you have. Any old 2,400 or so will do.
But being very choosy myselt and suffering from heinous phone bills. I decided to look at all the new sexy modems which are on sale tor your Amiga right now.
In the Amiga market there are surprisingly lew models available. Everyone seems to have ditched the small 2,400 modems, and even the Supra range is now practically a duo.
All the ads we looked at had the Supras, some had US Robotics, and fewer still had the Pace Linnet and Pocket jobs. But that was it! There is a good reason lor this though.
A modem is a modem, and like so many technologies which have become so well developed, every modem pretty much functions the same and as reliably as another. So in the end its all down to if you like it or you don't. Some are more expensive, but offer better functions, others are cheap but also have a good turn of speed. Let's see what they're all about.. Supra 14,400 Supra Corp - £259.99 performer. I particularly like the clarity of the speaker in it. You wouldn't really think that modems would be sonically enthralling, would you, but you'd be surprised what a great difference it makes to
be able to hear exactly what's going on when you dial and connect to a BBS.
Sometimes you can diagnose a problem just by the sound of the tones, when Although the Supra range are the best, this baby does need more than a little bit of tinkering around before it'll sit up straight and beg for its dinner.
Unlike almost every other Supra modem I've ever seen, this one doesn't run right out of the box. It plays silly buggers until you get all the settings right.
But once you do get it right it's a star US Robotics Sportster US Robotics - £339.99 This is a classy and inexpensive top of the range modem. US Robotics also make some of the biggest and most expensive machines in the form of the Courier HST standard jobbies.
The Sportster was. I assume, made to fit the demand for a small, fast and cheap system, or at least as close to those ideas as US Robotics could muster.
I have to admit they've done a fine job. OK the case looks a little bit old tech, but that retro look may be your leaning. It brings to mind an Atari VCS games console of the late 1970s. Albeit a quarter the size and white instead of fake wood. But the same idea is there.
I suppose the looks make it more distinctive, but the looks are nothing compared to the performance. Right out of the box, no twiddling with settings, a quick ATZ and you're there. The unit worked with Ncomm, Nicola. JRComm. And even ACCESS! Didn't turn it's nose up, and I've always had problems ot one sort or another with that program.
Having a modem bearing the US Robotics name is a bit like having a car with Ferrari written on the back. The name means top of the range, and if you buy this MODEMS!
Jargon buster download receiving a file from host computer or BBS via modem.
The file is stored on your computer.
Fax modem a modem which also has tax capability, enabling it usually to send and receive taxes to any ordinary fax machine.
Upload sending a file to a host computer or BBS.
V32bis a 14,000 modem will be called 32bis, which is the appropriate CclTT code.
V42bis a 14,000 modem will be called 42bls, which Is the appropriate CCITT code.
Voicemail like normal answering machines, only voicemail systems put messages for each person on the system In a separate place, so It’s like a BBS email for voice messages.
• ou get used to them. Sounds poncy, but it - true. The Supra's
monitor speaker is bud and dear.
Also a very nice little matrix of LEDs on the front tell you the speed that the rmit is operating at and various other tech- ntcal bits and bobs, like if you're connected at all. In standby mode the display says OK. Cool or what?
This is the top of the heap, the king of the pile, the cock of the walk, the dog's ., ithat's enough superlatives - Ed) Ahem.
It's the cheapest and fastest modem V32bis 14,400bps modem V42bis 14,400 fax LED matrix display Rating: 10 10 Big V32 modem only Rating: 6 10 Supra Fax Plus Supra Corp - £139.99 Although not as fast and sexy as the
14. 400 jobby, this is still a very serviceable modem, and if fax
is more important than modem facilities then this might be a
better option for you. The unit does fax, the same as the
14,000bps model, but at 9,600bps, and does data at 2,400bps.
So it's basically a bog standard 2,400 modem with MNP, not unlike mv old machine, but it has the fax added on, hence the name.
The performance is what you’d expect from a Supra modem, being something of an industry standard these days on the Amiga. Nice loud monitor speaker, and small and neat casing. A top performer, especially using GPFax software.
A large box by modern modem standards, and in fact thus one is something of a throwback to when modems were all very large clunky boxes about as big as an answering machine. It's big, it's expensive, but it does the job.
It's a V32 9,600bps machine and has the facilities you would expect It's performance is good, if a little "steam driven". Big and clunky, this is not out of place in an office, where you need something a little more robust and larger than life (and also where price might not be a problem) but in the home or bedroom this is a monster, and that’s about all you can say about it.
Pace - £339.58 Pace Linnet 32 Pace Microlin Pocket Pace - £186.83 From one extreme to another, this Pace modem is actually made for use with laptops (and PC laptops at that) and this is reflected in its minuscule size.
Although it works fine with programs like JRComm, it's fussy about the program you use dropping the DTR line, as it uses this to turn itself on and off. A handy thing if you only want to buy one modem for two machines which are a fair distance apart, like Somerset and London.
It's battery powered so if you want you can just slip it in your pocket and wander ?
As this is meant for the PC market, the unit comes with PC fax software. If I had to choose between this and the US Robotics I know which I'd have. After the Sportster this seems a little slow, but if you're used to a 2,400 then this'll seem like being strapped on the front of a Jumbo Jet. It also comes in a V32bis 14,400bps model for £457.08. ¦ MODEMS Comms software niComm Shareware - £30 There is only one comms engine of choice - Ncomm.
The current version is 2.0. well worth paying up the shareware fee so you can at least get rid ol those annoying requesters.
It's chock-a-block with state-of-the-art features like Zmodem up and downloading protocols, and interlace and multicoloured modes lor those of us with multisync r The program is fast and ootourfui when it needs to be, and works with most modems i out of the box. Some may need a little judicious twiddling with the Modem Setup menu, I apart from that you can be up and running with Ncomm tn about halt an hour There's also a simple Host program too, simply a script which allows you to quickly j simply set your Amiga and Modem up as a BBS Nicola Shareware - £35 Hardware verdict Which is the one to
go for? Well as I say it depends upon your needs, but if you want the best I'd say it's evenly spread between the Supra and the Sportster 14,400 jobs.
Both offer the kind of military standard blistering data speed which will see you into the next decade, both understand fax like a native, and both are nice and cheap at the moment. The Sportster has a nice cheesy 60s or 70s look to it, which may in fact be a point in its favour depending on your taste (1 like it myself). If you want something which is more discrete, then the Supra is your man.
Both are equally small and user friendly, and the Sportster at least works right away straight out of the box without off to another location and use it with another Amiga. It even comes with a sexy little black leatherette protective pouch so the unit won’t get scratched going in and out of zippered pockets.
The machine comes with fax software for a PC, which is no good to you of course, but you can run it using GPFax or another generic Amiga Fax proggv. There is also a V32bis version of this unit which runs out at £410.08. This has to be the smallest fax modem ever made.

V22bis 2,400bps modem V29 9,600 fax Rating: 7 10 II you intend to use CIX. Then you must have a copy of this program. Nicola is an off-line reader, or OLR, and it’s the best one around for the Amiga. The program was written by 'Tricky" and the shareware version works by the use of a simple licence system.
You email Tricky and he mails you back a licence. You use the program for 40 days fro free to soe if you like it. And then after that you can send him money and he'll send you a complete licence which doesn’t run out.
The program automates all CIX functions Irom downloading software to checking your mailbox and binmalling things to other CIX users Areas which are not served are the Usenet and Internet gatoways. To use them you'll have to use Ncomm and go in by hand.
(See this month’s Comms column for an in-depth review of Nicola - Ed), First Computer - £39.9!
This is the lax software that people get they buy a fax modem from an Amiga It has special Supra versions which i directly to the Supra Fax Modem family,!
You can get a generic version to talk to bog standard PC fax modem It's nice to be able to create your fax dec ments without needing to scan them in. Ar you can simply pretend to print out from i cations to create fax documents.
You might also like to try the demo ve of Afax by downloading the AfaxDemo1_31.lzh or Afax20d.lzh from friendly local BBS. This is a shareware ol another fax send and receive program I Australia. Looks to be well worth a go. I although the demo only handles single f you can upgrade to a full version for very I dosh Only drawback is you have to send t money down under before you can get a re; istered version.
CVPPhonePak VFX CVP - £34-9 A bit of an oddity, this one. The PhonePak isn't in fact a modem, but is a combination voicemail, answering machine and fax machine system for your Amiga.
It's basically a card which fits into a Zorro slot and runs custom software to make your Amiga into a powerful communications system.
It's a fax, it’s an answering machine, but it can also do that neat trick where it answers the phone and it says “It you want to send a fax press 5, if you want to talk to Phil press 6..." etc- OK, so you have to have your Amiga on all the time to catch your messages, but the messages are in IFF formal so you can save them to disk and keep them il you like, which is something you can't really do without a sampler otherwise The quality from the phone is pretty good too, and you can also listen along to any messages as they come in, cutting in if you wish.
It's magical and it's only £350. It’s a fax.
It’s an answering machine, it's a voice mailsys- tem, and it's a fax switch, which added together makes about £700-800.
If you intended to get a tax modem for a small business and faxing is all you realty wanted to do, then you might like to look at this instead, as the extra capabilities (and for the same price as many fax machines) make it very attractive and quite unique among Amiga comms products.

0 DEPOSIT CRI Al HP lilies «• hr irieereN) ¦ MUSIC B!3Ei 1 my *m Computer With a minimum of equipment, you can turn your Amiga into a 16-track recording studio! Paul Overaa makes some tuneful inroads into the world of sequencing Despite the presence of a lot of competition (mostly from the Atari ST) the Arnica has continued to make inroads into the now firmly established area of computer-based music making.
There is already a growing band of professional Amiga sequencer users and Amiga users in general also seem to be taking more interest in sequencing.
Sequencers, in case you don't know, work much like sophisticated tape recorders. They record musical note information, generated either by the Amiga's own alpha-numeric keyboard or by an attached piano-style synth keyboard and let you modify, combine and play back the stored material in virtually any way you wish.
Although nowadays there are several heavyweight, and needless to say expensive, Amiga sequencers suitable for pro* fessional and other serious use, there are also plenty of more affordable offerings which are perfectly adequate for most sequencing requirements.
There are, incidentally, some sequencing areas where you can even get suitable PD software to do the job.
TWO TYPES The term sequencing doesn't exactly cover a multitude of sins but there are nevertheless two types of sequencer available on the Amiga.
Because the two types are so fundamentally different (in both use and purpose) it's worth spelling out the differences in detail... Tracker-style sequencers are programs used to compose and create sound sample-based songs for playing via the Amiga's sound chips.
Most musicians would not, in the strict sense, regard these programs as sequencers at all but since the Amiga world seems to have adopted the terms "tracker sequencer" or "sample sequencer" for these types of programs who are we to argue?
Tracking is actually one of the oldest of the Amiga's music areas simply because right from the start programmers needed a fast, convenient way of creating music for games and demos.
One of the earliest utilities to appear was called SoundTracker and within a few years various other “tracker"-type clones had appeared. Being essentially programmers’ tools, these programs adopted programmer-like conventions for creating music sequences.
Song descriptions tended to be built around crude lists showing.the times and I the pitches at which various samples] should be played.
Editing facilities were relatively lim-1 ited but while not ideal from a musician’s I viewpoint this tracker method of com-] posing music rapidly became established 1 in programming circles.
Over the years tracker programs have] Q and A on the sequencing scene How long can a Midi lead be?
? The Midi standard itself says 15 metros, but a lot depends on the amount, and the peak densities, of the Midi traffic flowing through it.
In some cases, leads of twice the maximum suggested length have been found to work. To see how far things can be pushed with a particular Midi set-up you just have to experiment!
Qwhy is conventional Midi limited to only 16 channels?
? It'S because the Midi status byte, the part of the Midi message which contains the channel number, has only four binary bits available to hold the channel number information.
The limitation stems from the tact that four bits of a binary number can only represent 16 different values.
Ql’m stuck with a synthesizer which seems to have a lot of weak sounding preset voices. Is there a way of making it sound better?
?
Doubling - where you lake a track, duplicate it. And then change the Midi channel of the second track so that two different voices play essentially the same notes - can usually help Shifting the start time of one of the pairs o tracks should further improve things.
Q What's the difference between pre-record and postrecord sequencer filtering?
? Pre-record filters remove selected Midi messages before storing them as sequencer track events, so by the time a sequence has been recorded those messages are lost.
Post-record filters produce their effects by limiting which parts of the stored data are used. The big difference of course is that these ‘output only* filters do not prevent the original Midi messages being stored as track data if, at a later date, the filter option is cancelled, any messages previously being suppressed by the fitter would appear again.
Ql play m a semi-pro band and am tempted to use an Amiga sequencer at live gigs. What sequencer package would be most suitable and what sort of snags are likely to occur in practice?
?
I’d recommend Dr Ts KCS package for live work firstly because it is robust and secondly because it has some facilities that are especially useful for live gigging.
There’s a special song mode that allows you to work with sets of up to 16 songs and this enables typical club song sets to be created that can be loaded in one go.
As far as snags with KCS goes there shouldn't be any - it really is an excellent package. You will get the odd Midirelated problem though (incorrect wiring up of Midi leads when rushing, the occasional faulty lead and so on) and should therefore carry spare Midi leads - and extra copies of your program and song data disks Almost all Midi problems you'll encounter will be trivial I and easily solved if you don't panic!
0 What are Midi messages?
? Midi sends its message information using 8-b«t units which the computer world call bytes. With Midi these bytes represent sets of standardised numbers whose meaning has been laid down by the Midi standard.
Some Midi messages consist of more than one byte and in this case the first byte, known as the status byte, identifies the general message class. The remaining bytes of that message are called its data bytes .

As well as using the Amiga's keyboard
• enter note data a few, such as VtaVlED Professional, let you
link up a Midi synthesizer so that riffs bass pat-
* nxs and so on can be played in a more conventional way (which
is much easier Mr a musician than bashing away on the r
-tsically meaningless Qwerty keyboard) i'd provide limited Midi
output facilities.
SEQUENCERS Mow we come to the crunch. Tracker r'. grams, even those with some Midi facilities, are certainly very useful but swy are not (and should not be confused
• th) real Midi sequencers. Trackers, respective of how the
original note data » entered, are primarily used to create r
jsic to be played using the Amiga's wund chips.
The Midi facilities are provided as an otra bonus for users who have some Midi equipment available. True Midi sequencers have a somewhat wider range of objectives.
Such sequencers are designed specifically to record, edit and play back Midi data and, even though a few Midi sequencers do allow you to play back songs using the Amiga's sound chips, the A great many sequencers adopt a tape recorder-style approach to Midi recording and playback operations and the analogy is a good one because, conceptually speaking, sequencers as mentioned earlier are very much like multitrack tape recorders - the main difference is that they record digital data rather than audio sounds.
Many sequencer packages make the analogy very clear by using displays containing buttons for playback, recording, fast forward, rewind, stop and so on just like conventional tape recorders.
The following listings cover the sequencers which we think are either the best, the cheapest, or have some other saving grace (or peculiarity) that warrants their inclusion.
Please use our quoted prices only as a rough guide. In the current economic climate prices are changing almost daily and there are always special offers, discounts for cash and so on to be had.
Anyone spending money nowadays definitely has the upper hand, so make the most of it - after all one day the recession might end!
?
Emphasis is on recording from - and playing back to - Midi equipment.
At the synthesizer end of such a system, Midi messages get transmitted when you do something - touch a control knob or press a note on a keyboard - and these streams of messages get transmitted at the Midi Out terminal.
When you connect a sequencer into the system it is able to read these messages and record what is going on as you play. Sequencers are not interested in the sounds being made, it's the Midi messages - which are essentially streams of numbers - that are important.
Irrespective of price, most Midi sequencers provide comprehensive editing facilities which will enable you to add and delete notes, cut and paste fragments of music and make key changes.
You can even ask the sequencer to improve the timing of the music you have recorded.
MULTITRACK Midi hardware Getting into real Midi sequencing is more expensive than basic tracker- style sequencing with Qwerty keyboard data entry because the Midi connection is essential, rather than optional.
In short, as well as the sequencing software itself you'll need a keyboard synthesizer and a Midi interlace.
A low-end. Budget-priced synth is likely to cost between £100 and £200, but if you hunt through the music magazine ads you can sometimes find second-hand bargains costing much less than this.
Even the cheapest of modern synths are quite easy to learn to use and, more to the point, most actually sound surprisingly good.
At these prices you won't get things like a touch sensitive keyboard or any of the other bells & whistles' found on more expensive synths but this is unlikely to matter unless you are a professional keyboard player.
One thing that is quite important, and it's worth spending a bit more to ensure you get it, is that the synthesizer you get is both polyphonic, which means capable of playing a number of different notes at the same time, and “multi-tlmbrar - able to play more than one voice (sound) at the same time.
ARRANGEMENTS The reason for this is that song arrangements are normally built up by recording all the various instruments needed individually using different sequencer tracks and different Midi channels.
When you play back your recorded song data you'll normally want to hear all the recorded instruments playing together and in order to do this the synthesizer itself must be able to generate all of the required voices at the same time.
Connecting up a simple Midi system essentially means linking together a sequencer, synthesizer, and a Midi interface, and it couldn't be easier.
Firstly, connect the Midi interface to the Amiga's serial port connector. Then take one Midi lead from the Midi-Out of the synthesizer to the Midi-In of the Midi interface and connect a second cable from the Midi-Out of the Midi interface to the Midi-In terminal of the synthesizer.
Switch the Midi equipment and your Amiga on, load the sequencer program as per the manual instructions, and you'll be home and dry.
As you progress you'll probably be tempted to add sound expanders, drum machines, and all manner of other Midioriented goodies, but the basic set-up described above is more than enough to get you started.

Jargonbuster Dll l connector A standard plug socket system found in many pieces of audio equipment.
Cassette tape machines, for instance usually have DIN connectors on the back-panei.
Expander A common name for a synthesizer sound module - a unit which contains the sound generating circuitry of a synthesizer without any keyboard You use them in conjunction with a normal synthesizer to add to the number of different sounds available.
Midi This is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, a communications framework designod to provide standardised digital communications between all manner of musical equipment.
Prior to the adoption of Midi, many musical equipment manufacturers set their own standards and a consequence of this was that linking equipment from different manufacturers was often difficult. Now that all music equipment communications are Midi-based, life for the computerised musician has become (almost) trouble free!
Midi interface The Amiga's serial port cannot be directly connected to Midi equipment because although the serial port can handle the speeds required for Midi data, the physical connections and the electrical signal characteristics are incorrect. A conversion box. Called a Midi interface, is needed Multi-timbral synth A synthesizer capable of playing more than one voice at the same time. Multi- timbral Midi synthesizers can usually be programmed so that different voices respond to data on different Midi channels.

INFORMATION ON THESE AND MANY OTHER PROFESSIONAL AMIGA PRODUCTS.
White Knight Technology 0992 - 714539 Please See Our Other Advert In This Issue For More Products LETTERS ¦ Stop unhinging, you lot!
It seems that a great deal of space is taken up in your magazine, not to mention other Amiga mags, by letters from Amiga owners complaining about the cost of 'essential* upgrades to their machines They often finish by suggesting that they may be “foreerf to change to a PC I use both machines - a 386DX25 at work and an Amiga 600HD at home - and must say rat I find the Amiga infinitely more pleasant to work on.
Workbench, in whatever version, is a far superior graphical interlace to that provided by Wndows Hardly surprising since Windows is, after all, a “bolt-on" software fix whereas the Amiga range has been designed and developed for Workbench from the start Anyway, being involved with both machines I also read magazines from the 'other stde' This has made me realise that in a number of cases it is not the Amiga which makes jpgrades so expensive, but the suppliers. I don't want to upset your advertisers but. Frankly, re* prices are often extortionate.
I realise that Amiga-specific goodies are governed in pnee by demand, but this Should not apply to standard components such as IDE and SCSI drives, floppy drives, and even floppy Mks themselves.
To illustrate my point. I have included a list of prices taken from your advertisers m the August issue, and one from a PC mag. Although the PC prices do not include 2.5m cables, re cost of these is negligible when compared to the savings The bottom line is that when contemplating expansion, you should always shop around.
Dud Be Surprised how many PC dealers are helpful and courteous, as a sale is a sate no matter which machine a drive is going to end up in.
JB Homer. Stockbndge The kst you supplied showed an average saving of about 33 per cent on hard drrves and the same on floppies when comparing Prices quoted in PC and Amiga mags, so the benefits of xppng around are dear. However, though you mention the fact that volume can affect srees, you wrongly dismiss the argument where hard drives are concerned A company which works mostly or completely in the Amiga market cannot hope to a&teve the volume of sales which a PC dealer will realise.
In effect, this means the Amiga company cannot buy drives in bulk, which pushes up unit ;js& and therefore end user prices, The PC market suffers from an overabundance of «a*ers and mail order companies already, so it is not an answer to say that Amiga suppliers should deal in both markets, especially as most will find an area of expertise and stick rnmt Competent users with a screwdriver and steady hands should have no problems fitting end formatting an IDE drive bought from a PC dealer, but most users will still want the cable rv formatting software supplied in the box and a certain amount
of after-sales service m something goes wrong with what is for many users their single most important invest-
• nerr r penpherals.
Can you imagine phoning a PC box shifter with an enquiry about Fast FileSystem me what assigns you might want to insert in the startup-sequence to get a game to Allah by airmail Last month, I decided to put a contact ad in your Classified section and had a brilliant result.
Not one of the responses was in search of pirated software.
Anyway, the last reply I received was from Saudi Arabia, so I thought "he must be a dedicated Amiga user to send a letter from so far away." How wrong I was! I opened the letter to find a leaflet introducing me to the Islamic religion. I just burst out laughing.
I had boldly stated that I wanted PD contacts, not religious contacts. 1 know you cannot help this, but I must take this opportunity to inform people that this does happen. Why do people do this? I don't send out leaflets about "how to be an atheist".
Is there anyone else who has received strange replies from adverts placed in the classified part of the magazine? I'm sure there have been some bizarre responses out there.
I have been an avid reader of AC since the December 1990 issue (when I got my A500), and my only request is for fewer demos on the CoverDisks such as Bars & Pipes jr and CineMorph jr. I expect you make money out of that, but me and my contacts agree that we prefer a totally PD sharewaredisk.
Gmlmm Beale, Slonehouse I'm ferry you seem to have attracted an umoelcome response to your ad, though laughing at the religious convictions of others is per- haps an extreme reaction to a leaflet which, upon a thorough reading, gives no » cause for offence.
The fact that the remainder of your correspondents were genuine Amiga users with no piracy intentions seems more a cause for celebration than the concern you might feel at a single inappropriate leaflet, As for your objection to demos, the tuv programs wu Specifically mention aren't demos in ?
Poor old ST Am I right in thinking that the Atari ST has died and gone to wherever obsolete piles of junk totter off to when the buying public finally tell them to take a hike? My impression on visiting my local W H Smiths and adjacent game shop was that there are virtually no new ST games and no real interest.
What made me stop and think, however. Was the fact that until little over a year ago the Atari market was still pretty big. Even if it was falling off. If such an established machine with a large user base can die so quickly, what will happen to the Amiga?
I think the public should be told.
G Peterson. Stoke The ST was an old-fashioned machine with Out of date technology, which is why it died out. The Amiga A1200 is a modern 32-bit computer with excellent graphics and a competitive price point.
There is no comparison between the ST and Amiga markets.
As an A4000 owner I was shocked that Microprose's a*»st flight sims, B17 Flying Fortress and Gunship
2300. Refuse to work on my machine.
M search for some explanation I called the helpline nc recovered that they were not able to test their Jsfc et On the A4000 simply because they didn't have one at the office!
I dont know about you, but this isn't what I'd expect a quality software house. Luckily, all is not black A4000 owners, as I am sure most of already know 190 nage Design will soon release an AGA version arfMamo.
Grtai Integration too assured me that their forth- : cuing Tornado game will be compatible with all Grounded A4000 Amigas, including the A4000. Even better, there will also be an AGA version shortly after the release of the standard one, and there should be an upgrade path.
Well it seems DID and Dl have actually shown commitment.
I have a question for you. If Microprose manage to get their act together, is there a possibility of seeing Falcon 3 converted to the Amiga before the end of next century. Camermans Filip, Belgium You are being unfair to Microprose when you criticise them for non-compatibility with a machine which was released well after the game in question was In development. It is difficult for a company to anticipate new chip developments and costly to rewrite substantial sections of a game which has already taken many thousands of man hours to code.
Games released after the A4000 s launch, especially flight sims, are fair game, and any company which ignores those users with faster machines deserve all the flak they get.
As for Falcon 3, don 't hold your breath as the game uses a lot of the sort of texture mapping that only Pcs can normally handle. There's a good chance the game will appear on the CD32, but we ll have to wait and see.
LETTERS the sense that they do not allow the user to create or save projects, but are limited versions of commercially viable products.
The intention is to give readers a program which is capable of producing useful results while at the same time offering sailings on the latest version of packages which many might not be able to afford at the full price.
Reader response to these promotions has been very good, with thousands of you taking advantage of savings to upgrade to fully- fledged current versions.
Some have, of course, objected to the use of larger demo programs which use up a lot of disk space and leave little room for PD and shareware programs.

By the same token, we can hardly ignore the huge number of people who tvtfcome the chance either to try out a limited version of a commercial product or save money on a purchase. More worrying to us is the reaction of readers to the inclusion of game demos on our double disk issues.

Well be,polling your opinions through the disk [rages in Ihe near future for a definitive answer, but feel free for the moment to air your feelings through these pages.
Cheapo USA I am writing to ask if you can explain why there is such a massive difference between the price of hardware in this country and in the States. I’m referring in particular to the GVP combo cards, as I’m thinking of buying an 030 50MHz or the 04(V33MHz.
The price of the latter in this country is approximately £1,279. Whereas in the States it is $ 979. Which is about half the price. These prices were taken from July’s AC and Amiga World of the same month.
I think I would be right in saying that everything in the States is cheaper, but why? I wouldn’t mind paying an extra £100 or so. But double is just silly, as I think you'll agree.
Satpal Chander. Huddersfield When a piece of computet equipment is imported from the US. Its dollar value, including any freight and carnage costs, is converted to sterling, then Customs and Excise add
4. 9 per cent Once the full cost of the equipment has been worked
out, the usual 17.5 per cent VA T is added, and calculated on
the total after import duties.
What this means is that a peripheral costing $ 900 might have carnage costs of $ 100 added to a total of $ 1,000. In sterling, this comes to £666 Add 4.9 per cent import duty to make £699.33, then add a further 17.5 per cent to this to make £821.72. In effect, the dollar has been converted to the pound more or less one for one. And this is before any margin for profit is added on by the UK dealer.
Many Amencan peripherals, including the GVP A1230. Are rather overpriced in this country, but when the duties and taxes imposed at the quayside are taken into account, the dispanty in pricing is not as huge. This, of course, doesn't mean UK companies have an excuse to boost prices.
More compos I read with interest the letter from Daryl Booth of Ramsgate in the September issue, and I too think that there should be more competitions. You don’t have to make the prizes spectacular, maybe a serious program or game, but please can we have more competitions?
I also noted that you have started to have phone-in only competitions. Please, please, please stop doing this. If you must have the telephone option (which I know 1 you make a lot of money from), could we please have a Competitions, ichrther of the phone-in or postal variety, have always been an important fiart of l w magazine and will continue to be so.
Hownu'r, cramming in more compos at the expense of, say. An extra page or two of ret'ietOi.
Might offend more people than it delighted.
We haw to balance the magazine as best we can, and listen constantly to reader feedback so that we may better judge how well we're doing. As part of that feedback, your letter has been pass'd to our compo pixies for proper consideration. Watch this space.
CD worries I'm the proud owner of an A1200 and since owning the machine I've fitted an 80Mb hard drive and added a Got GVP A1230 accelerator, use the trapdoor slot? This worries me as I would like both items in my machine. 1 just home Commodore think of all the A1200 owners who have bought RAM expansions and soon.
Also, on the same subject. Commodore have put a seal on the backing plate which means people will have to lose their warranty if they attempt to install hard drives, which is unfair as they wouldn't have to touch the chips or anything.
R Bell. London Commodore haven 't yet confirmed exactly how Ihe CD drive will attach to ihe At200, but it is highly likely that it will fit via the expansion slot, which uvuld make the use of all RAM or accelerator expansions impossible.
The PCMCIA slot has a 16-bit data bus.
And as such probably xvon't be suitable for connection of a CD-ROM drnv, Commodore may have found some way of making the marriage, but if so they are keeping details close to their chests for now.
We will continue to try to find out what is happening on this front, as many users are in a position such as your own, and bad news. In this case at least, is better than doubt and uncertainty.
Warranty seals hare been placed on the blanking plate because nothing will fit in this slot until a SCSI interface or some other form of fuss-thrvugh connector has been added, and as this uvuld involve opening the machine, the warranty uvuld be imvlnlaled in any case A fix for baloney Oooh, you are awful! May pimples I ruin your taste buds!
What a load of baloney! You say I on page 23 of September's edition I of AC that "Amiga Computing still I supports Workbench 1.3 whenever 1 possible '. Well, what happened to I the support on the August issue?
CineMorph jr could only be used I by owners of Workbench 2 or I higher. Not a lot of useful things on I that disk for the poor old 1.3 user.
You may be surprised to know I that there are still an awful lot of 1.3 I owners out here, and though we I may not have gone in for ROM I swapping, many of us have I invested our hard-earned pennies in I bigger memories and so on, so I please keep your word and support I us.
Michelle Anderson, Berton-ie-Clay I We apologise for the initial I unfriendliness of CineMorph jr to I Workbench 1.3, but we have now I fixed the problem and the solution I has been printed. For those who I missed it. Simply delete a tile called I Asl.library from the libs directory of I the de-archived CineMorph jr disk.
As far as keeping our word is concerned, we continue to seek out Workbench 1.3 shareware utilities for the disk and strive to ensure that most commercial programs work on the most used version of Kickstart and Workbench.
Our commitment to WB1.3 should need little more demonstration than the inclusion of a version of Caligari on the October disk which worked only with older Amigas.
Good PD and shareware utilities which function under Kickstart 1.3 are becoming harder and harder to find as the vast majority of developers and programmers have switched to Kickstart 2.04 and above, lured by the relative ease with which intuition-based programs can be created under the newer versions.
Don't, therefore, be too surprised if good WB1.3 shareware dries up completely over the coming year.

Don't try to make any more at this stage - there is a simpler way.
MAKEDIR can take multiple arguments and create more than one duvcton at the same time - let's do that now and create the some more required directories.
It would take a long time to enter this line if we had to enter BootDisk every* time, so first of all we'll make BootDisk A fully configured disk must be "stuffed" with a lot more information than this - but AmigaDOS is quite smart and some applications only need a bare minimum to work. So, let's add some tools to get the Workbench started, First of all, we have to move the command to activate the Workbench program: LOADWB. You will recall AmigaDOS commands are stored in the C directory The fifth part of Mark Smiddy’s introduction to AmigaDOS explains how to create a general purpose boot
disk For more than 150 years, people have been saying there is more than one way to skin a cat.
'? Stalgia aside, there remains a lot of ruth in this cliche - and it can be readily applied to computers too.
AmigaDOS has changed a lot over the tears and system improvements make it «ery difficult to make a generic boot disk
• citable for any machine.
The problem is not with the system, but
• nth the software; unless you have access v the Workbench 1.3
disk set it is not practical to make a bootable disk for that
whine, However, it is more likely you will
• ant to create a boot disk for your own aachine and this is what
we will concentrate on for the remainder of this series.
A certain amount of thought will be required on your part - this isn't a copout: You will learn more and faster by ioing it yourself.
Directories are containers; as you may ¦save noted they are just like the drawers
r. the Workbench. Each directory is used t a container for
similar items - com- rands, utilities, fonts, projects and
soon- Generally speaking, computers do not ¦ved directories -
they're there for your convenience. If you had a disk you used
to
- 4ore files from Deluxe Paint you might ategorise the work into
different types and create a directory (drawer) for each one.
AmigaDOS requires a certain list of im'lories which must be present on any i»k. This will allow an application to iocate the software it requires.
Applications (tools) include everything Tom wordprocessors to spreadsheets and r".en the Workbench utilities themselves.
The following directories are required by versions of AmigaDOS.
Essential directories 5 C: AmigaDOS commands.
S AmigaDOS scripts (programs).
Fonts: Bitmapped and outline typefaces.
L The run-time libraries. Required by AmigaDOS software devices and third-party filing systems.
Libs: The library directory - AmigaDOS and third-party function libraries.
Devs: Device libraries - external device handlers.
Prefs: The preferences. The actual contents depend on Workbench version.
Optional directories: Svstem: System commands (FORMAT, D15KCOPY, CLI and so on) Utilities: Non-specific utilities.
Tools: Workbench tools.
The AmigaDOS command MAKEDIR
* * used to create a new sub-directory strictly called a
user-directory) - let's create some of the new directories
now.
Boot your Working AmigaDOS disk, pen a Shell and make MAKEDIR resident like this: 8ESIDEHT C:M(ED1I A boot in the TUTORJALI which is also known as ( . A» the current boot disk - which should W e been your Working AmigaDOS disk.
The AmigaDOS command COPY is a very' versatile command which is basically used to duplicate files between disks and directories. The command requires two arguments: a source file (where it's copying from) and a destination (where it's copying to). Enter this: QPT FROn C;LQ4di6f? TO BootHsk; BdotQiskiC Ccre«tcd3 LoadMB.. copied.
This command copies the LOADWB command from your working disk onto your new boot disk and creates the C directory at the same time! This is accomplished with a little trick using the special character string Don't worry about how this works - you’ll see more examples in a moment.
Is that enough? Try booting vour new boot disk and see what happens. Nothing!
This is because AmigaDOS looks for a "boot script" - a special AmigaDOS program in which it executes a sequence of AmigaDOS commands which load and configure the Workbench proper.
This process is completely automatic - provided the special file is there. We have ?
Floppies ¦ TUTORIAL ?
To create it first. Boot your Working AmigaDOS disk once more and enter this: ED Boo:Disk:S Startup-itqutA « You will be asked to change disks if you only have a single drive.
A screen like the one shown in Figure I will appear. This is the AmigaDOS fullscreen editor, ED. A small message at the bottom left of the display should show Creating new File.
ED is like a very simple word processor used to create and alter AmigaDOS script programs. The program we are going to create has just two lines - enter these exactly as they appear LoadkS Erdtil Ul: Leaving ED can be achieved in a number of ways, but the best way is to use the menu options. Select Save first then quit (you can also use the direct command Esc-X which means you press the Esc key once, then X, then Return. This saves the file and exits ED at the same time).
Wait a few seconds for the disk drive to finish writing to disk and reboot the machine with your boot disk in the internal drive. As if bv magic, the Workbench appears!
There's nothing magic of course; AmigaDOS has booted your disk, found a boot program, executed it and loaded the Workbench. F.NDCLI turns off the initial Shell window and cleans up after itself - we don't have to copy this from an original disk because like many AmigaDOS commands, it is already in ROM.
Examine the Workbench and in particular try running some Tools from other disks; the chances are most will fail. The Preferences tools, for example, will refuse to work and present a requester stating Can't open ASL.Library. As I've already said, AmigaDOS requires a large number of files to operate correctly - the actual files do vary from version to version, so the safe bet is to copy everything!
Enter the following commands - AmigaDOS output is not shown to save space (a lot of things arc going to get copied here).
You will notice two of the COPY com* mands here use the ALL switch - this ensures any sub-directories (and contents of) the directory being copied are duplicated too. Don’t let that phase you - you'll see it all happen on screen!
Kopy FION LIBS: TO BootOlskclibs Kopy FRON DEVS: TO Boottisk:Dm Kopy FROA L: TO Boottiskil III Kopy FROA ERVAIt: TO BootDisl:Pref* ILL That takes care of the system drivers, handlers, libraries, filing systems and your current preferences (phew) but there are still a few things missing.
We might need a printer and the machine will certainly need to know what sort of keyboard it has!
Xllktlfr BootDisk:Devs KeyHips MlakeDir BootPi$ k:lerifPr1nttri There are also some directories required by later Workbench versions (their presence does not affect the earlier revisions) and these are created thus: Aok«D1r &ootlisk:levs Ronitor* Rak*Dir Bootlisk:Dm DO$ Dr vers Aak«Dir Boot0isk:0evs ’Dit»types Finally, Workbench 3 and higher have an extra director)' containing certain special libraries required by the colour preferences tools, and it is possible these will be used by software in the future.
Bak*0ir Boot Bilk: (Him If you have Workbench 3 you should also copy the contents of this director)': Kopy STS:Clltlfl TO BooTlitk:Clmci Next we need to locate and copy the required printer and kevmap driver files from your original Workbench disk set to the new boot disk.
First of all, we’ll locate the correct keyboard layout. In the UK the preferred keymap file is GB - although this will be different if you live elsewhere in the world.
The keymaps move location from the Extras disk in release 2 to the Storage disk in release 3, so we'll use a special AmigaDOS command, SEARCH, to find them. Make SEARCH resident like this: Xttidcnt C:SEMCi Now insert your Workbench disk in the internal drive and enter this: Sfirch DFO: FILE All "«8* This command tells AmigaDOS to search every director)' on the disk currently in the internal drive for a file called GB - you should substitute the name of the keymap you usually use, It may take a minute or more to complete the operation - don’t worry, this is normal. If the command stops and
nothing is displayed as above, change to the next disk in your disk set and try again. When AmigaDOS eventually locates what you are looking for, the screen will look like this: S*»rcb DFO: FILE All *6B* Extra»2.1:Storig« lftyiips gb Now we'll use another little trick to save some typing. Click and hold the mouse button at the beginning of the message (Extras2.1:5torage Keymap$ gb in this example) and drag across to select the text; the selection will be highlighted in blue.
Hold down the right Amiga key and press the letter C - that copies the text to the clipboard. Now enter this but don't press Return just yet: Press the Right Amiga key and V to paste the text from the clipboard back into position - your screen should now look like this (the path - ExtrasllStorage... - may be different though).
Kopy FROA Extri$ ?.1:$ tonge Key«ips gb Finally, add the rest of the line to make up the destination so the completed line looks like this and press Return: Kopy FROA EkriiZ.TjSlorigt Rcyiips gb TO BootDisk:Devs KefiAps Don’t get disheartened if this does no work exactly as described first time.
Console Copy and Paste is tricky until you get the hang of it - and that will take practice. This time try searching for the printer driver file you normally use. If you don't have a printer, or you are not sure which one, just look for the most compatible one of them all, EPSONX. Your screen should look something like this: $ f«rch DFO: FILE ALL ‘tpsonx* Extr»s2.1:Storag* Rrint*r» EpsonX Kopy FROA Excras2.1:Storage Printers CpsonX Now add the destination director)' which is BootDisk:Devs Printers like so: Copy FROA Extras?.1:Storigt Pr1nters EpsonX TO BootDisk:Dm Prlnt*rs Our boot disk
currently only has a single AmigaDOS command, LOADWB This is not acceptable since even the AmigaDOS boot program will need more commands than that in order to work. It is possible to copy the entire command directory over from a working disk like this: Copy FROA C: TO BootDISK:C but this is lazy and it takes a lot of room on the boot disk - space that could reasonably be used for other things. At this stage therefore, we'll copy the following useful commands: COPY, MAKEDIR, DIR.
ASSIGN, ED and IPREPS.
You have already met most of these; IPREFS will be explained in the next lesson. Copying these files one by one is slow. For this example we'll use a simple method to copy everything across in a single line.
First, we’ll make the current directory the command director)' of the boot disk: C: Inow we’ll copy the files over in one go.
To save confusion, this command has been split into two - ,but you can insert all the commands (ASSIGN, DIR, and so on) between the FROM and TO arguments if you wish.
1Xopy FROA COPT Dit MAKEDIR TO BootOisk:C ¦ Ixopy FtOA ASSIGN ED IPREFS TO BootDilk:(| At this stage if you try to boot your am boot disk it will not have the correct scn H mode, keyboard layout printer driver anything else you can set through prein ences.
Apart from the fact Workbench is acufl you can do very little else with it. TlH Preferences are not working yet becauH the preference managers cannot find ttl user configuration and the profcreftdl "Daemon” (IPREFS) cannot locate the as rent settings.
These modifications are made at bufl time - that's one reason why it seems h take so long - so we need to edit the A program like this: XD BootH»k;S Stirtup*jmitnt» When the screen appears, press Return A few times to clear some space abotw LoadWB, and enter the following lines: Copy ENYARC; RAAiEnv All SUIET Assign ENY: RAAiEnv Assign PRINTERS; DEVS;Primers PATH Assign KETNAPS; BEVS:Kryaaps PATH Assign UBS; SYS;Clmt} At.
Iprefs Save the file as described above - and wad for disk activ ity' to finish before pri ceedingJ Reboot the machine with the youil BootDisk and watch what happens. ThJ lines you have just entered have the follow-1 ing effect:
• Copy ENYARC: RIA: ny All RUICT Copies the usor-preferences
settings for everything from the screen mode to the printer,
into a new director)' on the RAM Disk called ENV - the current
environment directory.
The files in ENVSys are read by Iprefs I when it attempts to set up the current con-1 figuration. The Env directory is created by I the COPY command automatically and the I QUIET switch stops it from echoing every-1 thing back to the screen (which will cause problems).
• Assign ENY: RAIfiEnv
• Assign PRINTERS: DEYS:Printers PATH
• Assign REMAPS: DEVS:Kcyiips PATH
• Assign LIBS: STS:(liss(s ADD These lines tell the system
software where- | abouts the various directories are located I
by assigning them special name.
• IPrtfi sets the user preferences. This command is a daemon,
which means once started it never stops. It hangs around in
memory and watches out for any changes you make to the
preferences - Iprefs (or Intuition*1 Preferences) is
responsible for messages such as: "Please close all windows
except drawers...".
• In the concluding part next month, the renaming system
directories will be added and the boot disk completed with a
sample application.

P. O. BOX 2395, WALTHAM CROSS, HERTS. EN8 7HQ SCANNERS Scanning
is one of those skills at which you instinctively get better
the more you do it. But there are finite limits to what you
can achieve, dictated by the hardware and software being used.
Later we'll be looking at which type of scanner is best for which type of job. And I'll have a few tips and tricks for you to try out. But because understanding how a piece of equipment works often helps you to better use that equipment, let s first consider how scanners scan.
It s not complicated. They shine light on to the graphic that is being scanned. That light is reflected back, because that's what light does Receptors in the scanning head Hands The humble hand scanner can afford degrees of creativity that even the pros would be impressed with.

atturatrfy capture the hundreds ot thouionds ot colours and
subtle blends m a photograph nothing leu than 24 bits ot
colour will suffice then read or "sample'' the intensity of the
reflected light. The resolution at which you scan - the
"dots-per-inch*’ (dpi) - tells the hardware how frequently to
sample the reflected light.
It you choose 100dpi. Then the reflected light will be sampled every 1 100th of an inch across the graphic.
Monochrome (or simply mono) scanners are literally mono (one) chrome (colour) devices - a bit like mono printers inasmuch as they work only with black dots.
The reflected light-intensity value is converted by the scanner into a pattern of black dots. The matrix of the pattern is square, usually eight dots wide by eight dots high, which means there are 64 dots in all. This matrix is properly called a grain, sometimes a cell, but most often it is referred to as the dither matrix or dither pattern.
Dark colours reflect less light, so these get converted into a matrix that contains mostly, or entirely, black dots, light colours reflect more light, so these get turned into dithers that contain ft Tl .if only a few black dots or none When the entire dithered image is printed at the correct resolution it appears to contain many shades of grey: in reality it is lots of lit tie black dots, and the density of these dots in any particular area ol the image dictates what shade of grey your eye is fooled into seeing.
The popular mono hand scanners, like those Power Computing and AlfaData make for example, turn the 33* ___ " [Tj 5k ' V Although tome colour hand scanners are IB bit. The 64 shades ot each primary cotour that they see are not enough to reproduce the original colours In the photograph accurately These simply change the matrices that represent the light intensity values. The Text setting is a very simple matrix. Either all the dots are black, or all the dots are not black, and the setting of the scanner's Brightness wheel determines at what level of reflected light the entire matrix turns
black.
It is these patterns that the mono scanner head sends, via its interface to the scanning software. All the software has to do is read in the data and splat it on the screen.
Colour scanners work differently. A proper colour scanner shines three lights at the image - red. Green and blue (RGB) - and then calculates an intensity value for each of these "primary'' colours. These are combined, just as you combine RGB values in your painting software's colour palette, to produce a true colour.
For a 24-bit colour flatbed there will be 256 intensity levels of each primary This scan trom a 12 bit colour hand scanner contains only about flee per cent of the number of colours In the 18 bit scan and two larger dots between?

The one-pass method is much rjeker. But the three-pass method pro- auces colours that are truer to those in

Because of their size and relatively cost, colour hand scanners don't three lights to shine at the image.
So they shine a single white" light Sunlight is white light, and. As Isaac

colour in

light is «t so pure. You've probably heard of '* 'daylight"

Ices Colour hand scanners contain a sim- M fluorescent tube, although much

components.
They can scan in levels of grey as ¦* and they do this in much the same mmj as mono hand scanners, only the oaensity value is translated into a true •ade of grey instead of a black and dither pattern One of the problems with mono If your colour hand team are looking like this. It meant your tcanner light It not thlnlng brightly enough became It Is not being supplied with a high enough voltage hand scanners, caused by the limited number of shades m they see. Is that parts of the f original photo that are very light colours, but not actually white, are seen by the scanner as This produces
screen images that have "hotspots" all over them, giving the image an ugly high-eontrast appearance. One way around this is to place some thin, transparent coloured plastic or glass over the photo before scanning it. I find that red is best, but it depends on the colours and quality of the original photo. Different coloured materials produce different results.
(etowr hand My favourite trick is to cut up lots of transparent, differently coloured sweet wrappers, sprinkle these over the image, put a thin sheet of clear glass over the lot (pinched from a picture frame), and then do the scan. This is even more fun to do with a colour Mono hand tconnert can tavr In 16 greyi. But the limited number of thodes they tee meant any light oreat In the photo will ttand out at holipoti giving It a high contrail appearance And don’t stick at clear material.
Keep your eyes open for anything that is quite thin, fairly flat, and either transparent or semi-transparent. If the material is too thick the scan may come out slightly blurred, but I've put my offcut of 3 8in frosted glass (pinched from a skip) to good use now and then (hey.
But children, if you are going to handle glass, please wear thick leather gloves and make sure a grown-up is present when you do it). Here's another good Do you have the power?
If the fluorescent light in your colour hand scanner isn't bright enough, the red area of its spectrum fades, and consequently less red is reflected back to the scanner. So if you are getting dull scans from your colour hand scanner, or scans that have a blue-green tint to them, it is because the image is not being illuminated property, and this almost certainly means that the scanner head is not being supplied with enough power.
The AltaColor scanner, for example, lakes 12 volts of power directly from the Amiga, and this «s plainly not enough because it always produces scans that have a blue-green tint.
The more expensive Migraph ColorBurst can take up to 15 volts of power via a separate power supply unit (PSU). But it is being shipped by some UK distributors with a 12 volt PSU which, like the AhaColor. Results in blue-green images.
But give ColorBurst a 13 volt PSU, as Golden Image has done, and you get bright, vibrant colours that are close to those in the original. Golden Image is currently looking at supplying the AlfaColor with an external 0* 13 volt PSU instead of letting it take its power from the Amiga.
The AlfoColour hand tcanner Amiga Computing November 1993 SCANNERS are wider, how about trotting down to a copy shop and getting them reduced on a colour pho tocopier? Do I hear the sound of thousands of palms slapping thou 256 greyunln tan if produce greet imagn sands of foreheads?
For mono multi media work from photographic originals, the 64 greys one. Screw up some cling-film to make it all crinkly and then pull it out again.
Place that over the photo - don't smooth out any places where the clingfilm has stuck together in folds - then place a sheet of dear plastic or glass over it so that you have a smooth sur face to pull the scanner over. The result looks best if the image is converted to greys, but in colour you get a something that would be very, very difficult to produce with image processing soft ware to give the Amiga a boost.
If you don't want the expense of buy ing special printing software, then don't bother with the expense of a well buy a mono scanner. But don't but print poorly, so you might just as of photos that look great on the screen view there's no point in having scans I mean, from a home DTP point of expect miracle printouts colour scanner.
More tips in a sec. But before I forget I must quickly discuss printing. If your greyscale images are going to be printed on your home printer, keep in mind that the Amiga is limited to print ing just four bits (16 shades) of grey no matter what dither method you choose in Workbench preferences, or how many shades of grey may actually be in the graphic.
With help from special print-enhanc ing software like TruePrint or Studio (but not TurboPrint or Flexidump) you will be able to print more shades of grey. The Amiga prints colours in 12 bits - four each of magenta, yellow and cyan - so it Is able to reproduce up to 4,096 colours on your colour printer.
To print more colours, colours that are truer to those in the graphic, again For colour multimedia work I'd rec ommend nothing less than a 24-bit flatbed scanner if you are working with photographic originals and want near photographic quality results.
16-grey scale images are often surprisingly good If you are working with small photographs. Cartoons, or any other kind Of coloured illustration, including graphics produced with air brushes, water colours and felt markers, you may very well get away with a colour hand scanner provided g the graphics don't contain too many subtle they are not wider than Which scanne Essentially there are just two reasons to scan images into the computer - to use ther on the screen for multimedia purposes, or for desktop publishing.
For multimedia work you will almost certainly want colour. The rule-of-thumb here a quite simple: The more “bits’ of colour the scanner can see, the higher the quality of scanned images will be.
The Power Computing colour hand scanner is a 12-bit device. It can see four bits I red, four bits of green, four bits of blue - that's 16 shades of each primary colour amounting to 4.096 colours in total (16 x 16 x 16). The AlfaColor and CoiorBurst scan ners are 18-bit devices, seeing six bits (64 shades) of each primary colour, so 262,14 colours in all.
You'll probably want to end up with 256-colour images, so it would seem that any i these three will be plenty good enough colour-wise. But consider this: A typical photo graph will contain between 100.000 and 300.000 colours.
If you wanl the colours in your 256-colour image to closely resemble those in the ong inal photo, the more colour data you have in memory to start with, the better will be tN converted image.
Flatbed 24*bit scanners, like the Epson GT-6500 and GT-8000. Can see eight bit (256 shades) of each pnmary colour, which gives them a palette of 16.8 million colours.
Another major consideration is size. Hand scanners are only 4in wide. If you are plar.
How it works: The scanner Path of light Mirrors Light source Slotted disk Charge coupled device Mirror Roller LED illuminates Scanners work by measuring the intensity of light reflected from the image being scanned and converting these analogue measurements into digital signals which are relayed to the computer. The image is scanned a line at a time and the image is reconstructed by the scanning software, in the case of the flat bed scanner the light reflected from the image usually bounces off a series of mirrors and is focussed through a lens onto the image sensor which ts composed of
microscopic photoelectric cefls which converts the light into electrical Impulses.
The hand scanner is physically pushed over the image to be scanned. The light from a LED is reflected from the image, bounces off a mirror and Is locussed on a charge- coupled device (CCD) at the back of the device which converts the light into digital signals through an analogue-digital converter. As the hand scanner travels over the image a roller on the bottom is pushed round, rotating gears which turn a slotted disk. A light shines through this disk and is detected by a photomicrosensor on the other side ot the disk which sends a signal to the analogue-digital converter prompting it to
send a line of bits to the computer.
Colour scanners detect different colours by scanning through red, green and blue filters.
By olour nners lustrations for use in desktop publish- plenty **9 I'd recommend a colour scanner - When 'Jnd or flatbed depending on your tions *ceds. The only area where mono hand Is pro- scanners come into their own in desk- hand °P publishing is tor scanning line art - irpris* graphics like text, logos, symbols, car- ill you toons, sketches and so on.
Back fo the tips, and while on the is end subjects of line art and printing, let s et do I need?
' -g to scan anything wider than 4in, I promise you that doing it in two halves and i-emptmg to stick them together in an art package is not a viable proposition. It is far master to dimb Everest. But then you might enjoy the challenge of course Whatever colour scanner you choose, you will need lots of memory to be able to use
* productively. The more bits the scanner sees, the more memory
will be required to Ylld that data in memory.
With 4 Mb of expansion memory (that’s on top of your graphics or “chip" memory) !' Be able to comfortably scan images to screen-sized proportions, but for colour :es*iop publishing, where you may want to scan much larger sizes, you'll need 6Mb of ?«pansiOn memory to be comfortable. Even then you'll be restricted to postcard-sized : T nals unless you scan at low resolutions.
For mono desktop publishing you'll easily get away with 3 to 4Mb of expansion RAM
• eep m mind that the colour hand scanners can all produce images
that contain 64 true
- :-ades of grey, whereas all of the less expensive mono hand
scanners (which are 1-bit »w*s) can produce only 16 greys.
We i having said that, the AlfaScan mono scanner software •$ able to produce TIFF that contain up to 256 shades of grey, but it does this by anti-aliasing the image,
* ich means that while the resulting image may appear to have
smoother blends, it will i40 be less sharp because all the
edges will be slightly blurred.
See how to get the stuff to print with lovely smooth curves instead of the jaggies all round the edges. It's dead Simple really.
All you have to do after importing your scanned line art into your desktop publishing program is to scale it. If your printer is a 300dpi device, scale it to 25 per cent (0.25 in Gold Disk software). If your printer is a 360 dpi device scale it to 21 per cent (0.208 in Gold Disk software).
It doesn't matter one lota what resolution you scan at. Except that the higher the scan resolution, the larger the image will be when scaled down in the DTP software.
If you've scanned something at 200dpi and after scaling it to 25 per cent or 21 per cent it is too small, don't adjust the scaling; just scan it again at 300 or 400 dpi.
LINE ART This scaling tip is just for line art.
By the way, not for greyscale or coloured graphics. The print resolution of these is by and large dictated by the type of dither pattern selected.
Scaling down grey or coloured graph* iCS will not improve their quality when printed; only the print-enhancement software mentioned earlier will help you here.
Hand-scanning in a straight line can be difficult without the help of a scanning fray, but there's no need to splash out on one - you can build you own. Put a white piece of paper on your flat scanning surface.
Put your photo or graphic on that.
Cover them both with some clear plastic - the thin stuff that goes gollump* gollump when you wobble it is best.
And any stationers will sell it. Then get two big, thick, heavy books. I use two Yellow Pages. Place one to the left of the Image, spine inwards, and get it aligned square with the graphic. Then gently place the scanner head on the graphic and up against the spine of the book.
Place the second book to the right of the scanner head, spine inwards again.
SO that there is no room for the scanner to move from side to side. Run the scanner up and down this trough a few times to check that the books are parallel.
Away go you. When you do the scan, lean quite heavily on the two books with one forearm, and then pull the head down the image with a very light touch. Don't put any pressure on the head - it's the pressure that causes you to make jerky movements. Just let the head slowly and evenly glide over the image.
How do you pull it slowly and evenly? Well, I tie one end of a bit of string to the scanner lead, the other end to the seconds hand on a kitchen clock, and put the battery in when I'm ready to scan.
And it you believe that, you'll believe anything. I'm gone. Happy scanning.

is one of those sciences which simply wouldn't be possible
in its modern form without the power of computers.
Calculating the position and movement of objects trillions of miles from Earth takes mathematics of gargantuan proportions, and the human mind would turn to jelly long before the job was done.
Heaven ly bodies With even a humble 68000-based Amiga, it is possible to keep track of millions of objects, calculate the paths they will take, the effects they have on each other, and so on, and it is this number- crunching power allied to colour graphics which makes Distant Suns possible.
Now in v4.2. Distant Suns has come a long wav since its 1991 launch and sports [list about as many options as the amateur astronomer or physics teacher amid wish for. It is now the ideal tool for Amiga users with either a leisure or scientific interest in the stars, AZIMUTH The sky is normally mapped by referring to altitude and azimuth co-ordinates expressed in degrees (planetarium mode), and the program defaults to this system for those who know a bit about astronomy.
For the rest of us, however, there is a facility to jump to any one of hundreds of cities or simply type the longitude and latitude of the position from which the sky is to be viewed.
After this it is easy enough to navigate one's way about using the more common compass directions, or local mode as the program calls it.
For example, to check out the view from a London bedroom window, the user can use a menu selection to set London as the viewpoint then tell the program which way he or she is looking. A star map of the night's stars appears, and a Variety of options are available for oodles of information.
Hiere is a table showing when each of the planets will rise and set, the constella- Distant Suns twinkle into your .

" I (?".Mr*! 3-B j UIM »n tions can be shown complete with outlines drawn in, and any number of different objects can be added or subtracted from the view' depending on what the user wants to see.
Initant moon Information with phase distance and much more all on screen with one mouse click An amateur with a 3in refractor might, for example, be interested in spiral galaxies, and by telling the program to plot all these on-screen, finding out where in the sky each one is can be as easy as clicking with the mouse.
This yields information about declination (latitude), rising and setting times, and so on, and should make it easy for star-spotters to pinpoint their favourite objects.
With a properly calibrated tripod it should be child's play to position a telescope so that the object came immediately into the user's field of view, negating the need for frustrating minutes spent navigating one’s way around the sky with a finder scope.

Probes. These show details of most of the planets in the solar system and some of their satellites and are accessed by clicking on an object while in identification mode, then clicking on the View button which appears on the info panel.
As the pictures are not AGA format, they lose some of their dramatic impact, but there are some beautiful shots, particularly that of the Olympus Mons volcano on Mars and the photo taken of the erupting volcano on lo.
By relieving the mostly black look of the program (we're looking at the night sky, remember?), the IFFs break up what could easily have turned into an information overdose.
EDUCATIONAL Extra disks of pictures taken on the voyager missions are available to those who wish more visual delights, so the extent to which Distant Suns can be, turned into a program which is both educational and a treat to look at is limited only by the user's preferences.
TYCOh HUS - ItlovieStar Spur ireLGMeirrw NERVOUS flARX 0N maiaR cnif COLLEGE RIRLOCN ATOMIC AGE Three ready-defined environments are included in the package, showing the last visit of Haley's Comet in 1986 and a couple of eclipses, but as these are all events in the past they are of only educational use, and a couple of updated events, such as the recent visit of a large meteor shower, would have given the program some contemporary punch.
Distant Suns is, nevertheless, an ideal tool for parents and teachers alike and a definite "must buy" for astronomy-loving Amiga users.
T For wore information on Distant Suns, phone Meridian Software Distribution on (181-543 35(10 Safari fonts Some of the best PostScript and Compugraphic fonts to be found are those churned out by Safari Fonts, and the collection has recently topped the quarter century mark with the release of disk 25, and while not the best in the range it is a fitting landmark.
Disk 25 contains only five fonts, and as it doubles up, offering different versions of the same typeface, it could be said only to have three.
However, the MovieStar font is almost in itself worth the asking price, and is one of the most stylish fonts to have come out of the DTP world's recent infatuation with Star Trek.
Of less than general use, fonts such as MovieStar Sans and MovieStar Spur Serif (easily the best font on the disk) arc ideal for stylish greeting cards, some logo work, and posters. They are augmented by Triangulus, a fairly pointless font of the wacky school, and Tycoanus.
The latter is actually a renamed version of the Star Trek Deep Space Nine font and taken frbm the latest spin-off series.
Worthless outside the context of Trekkie mania, it is nonetheless one which Trek fans will undoubtedly want to add to their collection, making this disk a good buy for such disturbed people, As usual, in common with all Safari fonts, each is well designed, dean and slick, and available in both Compugraphic and Adobe Type I PostScript format, so users of all DTP packages should find something to please In addition to the latest fonts, distributors EM Computergraphic have now released several collections of the most popular fonts in the Safari range in special compilations two of which, the
Future and Star fonts disks, recently landed on the AC welcome mat.
Star fonts is a bringing together on one font frenzy as tM Compugraphic take their safari fonts Into the spate oge disk of the most sought after Trekki fonts, including those from the original 1 series and the later New Generation sto ties, and is aimed squarely at the vafl army of sadly addicted fans of the ageing Shatner and his crew of crumblies.
Included in the collection is Tycoanui MovieStar, the weird Romulus, along wi4 a variety of supporting characters such m Primaton, jupiter, and AliensOne.
Some of the typefaces are a bit creaky, particularly AliensOne, but as a compile tion disk this one will no doubt be a hi with anyone who needs title fonts for spacr animations, Trekkie fanzines and so on.
FUTURISTIC The second compilation disk we looked at, Future fonts, contains several general purpose futuristic faces, such as the excellent Airlock font, and the superb Nervous a direct copy of the font used in the movie Psycho along with a few more down to earth typefaces.
College is a blocky all-American font cn the sort used to emblazon college names on baseball jackets, and Motor City a copy of one of the 50s American car manufacturer's logos (could be Chevrolet, but I can't be sure), so there's a bit of non-space variety for the earthbound among us.
In all, the compilation disks, now including Serious, Display, and Script, are good value for money at £15, and offer the font user with a specific area of interest the chance to buy several sought-out fonts on one disk instead of having to trawl through an entire library, finding one on each disk. If this isn't enough, EM Computergraphic now offer a Pic 'n Mix service for those who n&*d an exact list of typefaces.
T For more information on Safari fonts, contact EM Computergraphic on 0255 431389 Scenery Animator v4.Q Having developed alongside Vista Pro, and mostly overshadowed in the last year by its rival, Scenery Animator v4.0 has had to struggle to offer something different. In its latest version, it does just that.
The program has always been much easier to use than Vista Pro, particularly when it comes to creating animations, and has a less complex interface than the intimidating bank of buttons confronting the Vista Pro v3.0 user. However, as an update the program's two new features have a lot to say for themselves.
Support for AGA would have forced Natural Graphics to update their product in any case, but not all packages have found the jump to AGA an easy one. Some, like Dpaint IV, have suffered for speed, and some have only incompletely accepted the new format.
Scenery Animator v4.0 accomplishes the task with ease.
Ham8 and 256 colours have been added to both the Anim Mode and Render Mode menus, and HAM screens will render in hi-res interlace if the program is running on an A1200 or A4000.
Seamlessly integrating themselves into the main interface, the new AGA modes are fully and properly implemented.
The second major addition to Scenery Animator is its facility for loading 3D objects directly into the program to form part of a rendered scene, but this improvement is not without its problems, and loading some objects can have in very unpredictable results.
The only directly supported format is the VideoScape 3D GEO type, and only the Ascii version of this. Users with objects generated in other packages will have to use a conversion program such as Pixel 3D Pro to make use of their creations, and this is where the problems appear to arise.
In the conversion, a process which is seldom without problems, complex objects often pass from one program to another minus a face here or a bit there, and the final output can suffer badly as a result.
The problem is not with Scenery Animator, as genuine VideoScape objects work a treat, but if the package would import some of the more popular file types, such as Imagine, Lightwave, and Real 3D, the feature would be an infinitely more powerful and practical one.
Problems arising from conversion meant that when preparing images for this article, a great deal of faffing about was necessary with conversion programs and a variety of objects to find those which would transfer properly.
Having said this, the images generated are vastly improved by the addition of 3D objects, and if the user can find sufficient VideoScape 3D images or the correct settings from within a conversion program, Scenery Animator's output can look better than any other program of its kind.
The sample image we have provided shows a house nestling in one of Scenery Animator's ready supplied landscapes, and is augmented by the program's facility to place individual trees exactly where they are required.
With a little care, and perhaps the creation of a barn, some fencing, and the addition of the ubiquitous cow object provided with Imagine v2.0, a complete virtual farm could be built up without problem, with the proviso that the objects import properly.
Using Vista Pro, the nearest one could come to this sort of result would be to spatter some of the package’s tombstone-looking "houses" around and add the odd unconvincing road, leading to nowhere near as gratifying a scene.

Alt prices subject to change & delivery With the Amiga world already groaning under the weight of assorted video grabbers, is there really a place for another? After all, with products like Vlab Y C and 1V24 v2 already providing spectacular quality at or below FrameMachine's £699 asking price, why reinvent the wheel?
With these elements already leaning in the opposition's favour 1 must admit it looked like FrameMachine was in for a rough ride right from the off.
The picture However after just a little experimentation the Amiga's latest power product slowly but surely began to redress the balance.
Things got off to a flying start thanks to blissfully simple installation. Unlike the majority of expensive add-ons, FrameMachine slipped into the machine effortlessly. Better still, once the accompanying software was installed and subsequently clicked into life, totally glitch-free operation ensued.
In fact, in a rare break from tradition 1 had virtually no config or compatibility problems whatsoever. Even so. It must be said installation isn't always quite such a breeze.
TIGHT SQUEEZE On A 1500s and 2000s, for example, a special piggyback Denise connection is required to attain an appropriate video signal, while squeezing the card into the tight confines of the office A4000 did add the odd grey hair to my already impressive collection.
As you've probably guessed, a Zorro slot is essential, which alas can only be found on the A1500 and above. For those lucky enough to own an A4000 there's the added bonus of full AGA support in addition to all the older Amiga modes plus Useful array of tools In addition to the main grabbing program, FrameMachine also ships with a useful array of utilities varying from simple screen clearing icons for prism to more complex genlocking or keying controls.
With Prism on-board, access to a general purpose 24-bit display is also pretty straightforward and to simplify the task two icons entitled Pplay and Pshow provide access to a 24-bit preview of captured sequences and individual images - but as you d expect, playback speed can pretty slow in the larger screen sizes.
Last but far from least comes Prism Preferences, which allows control over how the Prism output is to be combined with Amiga graphics. In addition the requester provides total colour, saturation, brightness and contrast control over the 24-bit display And if you have access to an extra monitor or Scart compatible TV. It's here where a duel monitor setup is configured.
ILBM 24, RGBS and YUVN for the experts.
With the thrust of FrameMachine being video grabbing, this seems the obvious place to start, but of course before any grabbing comes connection - which in the case of FrameMachine can mean both composite andS-VHS.
Paul Austin plugs in FrameMachine and discovers it’s a lot more than just another pricey picture importer As usual all connections are made at the rear, alongside the board's genlock- compatible 23-pin RGB video-out plus a separate S- VHS-out for the optional Prism 24-bit frame buffer.
FrameMochlne s excellent still frame capture For those lucky enough to have two monitors, the 23-pin RGB has the added bonus of providing a dedicated FrameMachine preview' while the normal Amiga signal appears on the machine's original monitor.
However, it must be stressed that a twin monitor system is not essential as FrameMachine has the ability to blend Amiga and FrameMachine output, which although not ideal is certainly a usable alternative.
Once connected, the next task is to set up the software preferences accordingly by specifying a Preview mode, which can vary from quarter screen Io*res up to hi-res noninterlaced - greyscale only, although if the aforementioned Prism 24-bit frame buffer is fitted, a full-colour, 24-bit preview can appear on the second monitor.
Assuming a suitable image appears, simply clicking the mouse instantly freezes the image within FM’s internal memory and pops up a conversion requester offering most Amiga screen modes in varying sizes - with the exception of super hi-res.
All conversions can appear in both colour or greyscale, with optional dithering and overscan if required.
Of course there are always the three 24- bit save options if Amiga modes aren't suitable. Whichever format you choose, the program will first set about converting from its default YUV grabbing format and then update the screen with the one of your choice - assuming it’s supported by the machine, of course.
CRISP IMAGES In practice, single-frame grabbing is extremely easy with hotkeys and mouse clicks controlling the entire process, and better still the images themselves are extremely crisp. Even better than that, never once did FrameMachine produce a jittery image - even when grabbing fast action.
Like any self-respecting frame grabber, FrameMachine doesn't stop with single images and in fact sequential grabbing and support for animation is generally pretty impressive.
Again, with the assistance of Prism a whole host of compressed full screen grab sizes are available, and once captured the ?
Program's format conversion and sequence editing options are excellent.
Like VlabY C, FrameMachine uses the aforementioned YUV grabbing format which then requires conversion just like a single frame. However the software makes a decent attempt at ADPro-style multi-processing thanks to various save formats, both 24-bit and Amiga, plus an array of palette tools.
Best of all, there's a truly excellent cutting (or editing) screen which allows your raw captives to be displayed in miniature and then cut, copied and recombined into a tailor-made anim or still sequence.
Although FrameMachine has an impressive array of grab sizes and direct 24-bit full-colour compressed preview via Prism
24. It remains a strictly linear grabbing system which means
all the frames must be grabbed in succession - in real time.
Unfortunately this invariably means anything over quarter screen will skip frames during importation, which of* course is reflected in any subsequent animation.
In total, six grab sizes are available with from full screen 720 x 570 hi-res interlace to 88 x 70 non-interlace - which is roughly the size of a postage stamp. Like single grabs, sequential imports can be either colour or B&W- - however, only full frame images can employ interlace.
Unfortunately because there's no alternative to linear importation, the sequence processing and editing tools are reduced from impressive power functions to mere playthings.
Alas, until FrameMachine can match the interleaved frame recording (ILR) available within YlabY C, the card will remain irretrievably out-gunned when it comes to sequential frame grabbing.
Minus the optional Prism 24-bit buffer, but if that's the case VlabY C seems even strong buy than before.
However ,when FrameMachine is combined with Prism, the humble grabber becomes a much more attractive proposition. On practical level.
Prism provides FrameMachine with quite simply the best preview of any grabber with a variety of window sizes right up to full screen, all displayed at 25fps in full colour.
In addition, the grab itself, appears instantly in the size of your choice - all in glorious 24- bit, of course. Better still, its talents aren't limited to grabbing. In fact, the same video compression techniques offer six sizes from fM i PIP produces excellent pseudo graphics sandwich full Video down tO an 88 X 70 Courtesy of the IFR, VlabY C can capture video size images in full 24-bit, frame by frame without missing a single image.
R»r lea Thanks to some inspired programming, VlabY C can make multiple passes, continually grabbing as much as possible while keeping a record of which frames remain, ready for the next pass.
In addition, Vlab also supports FrameMachine-stvIe linear grabbing and, of course, all standard and AGA modes are on hand via built-in processing options. The only drawback of VlabY C is the lack of a built-in frame buffer.
However if a buffer becomes essential, Retina can be added for approximately £300
- for a basic model. Like Harlequin, Retina has Vlab
compatibility built-in, allowing grabs to be made direct to the
board - and unlike FrameMachine, a paint package comes as
standard.
With IFR in VlabY C's favour and the Retina VLabY C combination matching FM's price point almost exactly, it appears that the new board is firmlv on the ropes and on its way to the canvas.
However it's not over yet as FrameMachine fights back with Prism, extensive ADPro support, video compression and some very impressive geniocking options.
If simple frame grabbing is all you require, it is possible to buy FrameMachine Without doubt the best frame grabbing interface to appear within ADPro rectangle which can be moved anywhere around the screen with the cursors, and scaled via hotkeys.
The window then appears as a PIP - or picture in picture - over Workbench, Dpaint or whatever else.
Although pretty impressive, this is only the beginning thanks to the board's 23-pin, genlock-compatible video-out.
Thanks to the video-out, a combination of compressed video and normal Amiga graphics can be sent to a genlock which can then strip colour zero replacing it with the incoming video, which appears behind the compressed video window while Amiga animation or titling adds the finishing touch, The end result is a pseudo-graphics sandwich. As you can see from the screen shots, the overall effect is very impressive, and with careful placement, news-reader* style compositions are a breeze - complete with scrolling text and animation.
SUFFERS Like most power products, FrameMachine and Prism have leaped onto the ADPro bandwagon with an FrameMachine loader which provides direct access to the grabbing power of the board from within the ADPro environment.
In addition, a saver also allows direct access to Prism's 24-bit display. However it must be said after auto-scaling the image and rendering in what appears to be hi-res non-interlace, theimage quality does leave a lot to be desired in relation to other boards.
However having whined about the saver, it's only fair to credit the loader which without doubt is the best frame grabbing interface yet to appear within ADPro.
Unlike the Vlab loader, the FrameMachine variant offers all the screen resolutions, preview and grabbing options available within the board's own software.
Even full-screen 24-bit previews an catered for and like the standalone, the loader invariably generates completely flicker-free imports.
All in all, FrameMachine is a very impressive product which has hit the streets just a little too late. If some form ot IFR could be added to the system it may well become a world beater, but until that VlabY C will definitely make life very difficult for the newcomer.
On top of that comes the lack of a paint package which again the Vlab Retina, IV24 and OpalVision already offer, Whether Prism can cope with such a thing remains to be seen but until both of these problems are resolved it looks like this potentially excellent product has just missed grabbing the SYSTEM ESSENTIALS P PD » F.wniial YELLOW = Recommended “1 2 Mb Zorro required Hard drive RAM The bottom line Product: FrameMachine Supplier; HiQ Price; £699 including Prism Tel: 081 -909 2092 Ease of use 9 Implementation 7 Value for money 6 Overall 7 START YOUR AMIGA A smjfl Mwtion from thf vi Phone he

TECHNICAL HELP!
Potty ports This month we answer questions about the A1200, printers, Maxiplan, CineMorph Junior, DIY and more!
Help! The kids are driving me LO mad, the school holidays are " killing me - anyway that's the steam let off.
I have just bought a Brother HjlOOi Canon BJ10EX), a lovely printer but since having it connected to my A500Plus, my external drive refuses to access any disk put into it.
Yet when 1 unplug the printer from the computer it works perfectly. Is there anything I can do about it? I’ve had the leads checked and they are OK and the printer has also been checked. Keep up the good work.
Ken Richards, Romford rThe chances are that Hie fault lies with your Amiga, rather than your additional hardware, It sounds as though there is a problem with the CIA chips ¦r one of the expansion ports.
If you are competent with a multimeter and we circuit diagrams, you could (heck the ports yourself or, alternatively, just send your
• whine offfor refvtir.
ACA Video | previously used an A500 to Lw produce a video of linked ani- bersome than the other scripting programs but at least I could make hi-res and S-VHS video.
Not so. I could not get the player program to work with the A1200. I've telephoned Electronic Arts but have had no reply to my two telephone calls.
Your Suggestions would be welcomed.
Do I need another program and what will it cost?
V H Leadbcfter, Bristol rYou might like to consider buying Take 2 (vl.812) which handles HrnS graphics. If you hair a hard drive (and a healthy hank balance) you might like to look at Scala MM210 which also sup" mations and stills to music, using DpaintIV for the graphics and TV- Show to provide the script when transferring to video, but became disenchanted by the limitations of colours and memory in hi-res.
I changed to an A1200 in January1 and upgraded DpaintIV to take advantage of it. I also had initial elation when I was given Amiga Vision free. Now the disappointment. TV-Show will not accept the number of colours and Amiga Vision similarly only takes lo-res 32 colours or hi-res m eight colours.
Never mind, I thought, I can use the DpaintIV player program. Bit more cum- ports the ACA chip set and provides special effects, clip art and a nice selection of fonts.
A1200 printer setup 1 own an Amiga 1200 and have just purchased a Canon fit BJ-iOsx bubble jet printer When I installed the BJ-10 MM printer driver from the storage disk, to the Workbench rfcsk in the Devs Printer drawer with the default (generic) printer dnver I thought how easy it was.
But when the pnnter prels window is displayed on the Extras disk, there's no sign of the BJ-10 or generic dnvers in the printer type Window What has gone wrong?
I have very little knowledge ot computers but I have followed the instructions to the lotler in Bruce Smith's Amiga 1200 Insider Guide series I have played about with the pnnter prels and found that it I open the pnnter prefs editor both printer drivers are displayed but when I select OK I got the message Error processing IFF file Devs printers BJ-10.
Please help as this is driving me mad Mr S Eley. Market Drayton Installing a printer driver involves two tasks; Copying CM the correct pnnter dnver to the Devs drawer ol the MM Workbench disk and selecting the driver to use from within the printer preterence editor However, them ts a mistake in the Workbench 3 User's Guide The second Step in copying a printer driver to Ihe Workbench disk should read: 2 Insert the Storage disk into your disk drive and open iis window As you can see. The printer drivers are on the Storage disk and not on the Extras disk All the other steps for copying a printer
dnver to the Workbench disk are correct.
The error message that you received was generated by the PnnterPS preference editor This editor is used to set up printers that have PostScript capabilities and the error arose because the Cannon BJ¦ tOsx is not a PostScript pnnter Having copied the Canon BJ10 printer driver to the Workbench Devs drawer you should use the Printer proter ence editor to select the dnver The preference editor that you need to use is located in the Prefs drawer ot the Extras disk and is called Printer Use it to select ttio CanonBJtO printer type sol any other preferences that you require, then click on Ihe Save
button The mysteries of snapshot FI seem to have a problem with my A500. It's got lMb of RAM and a GVP 52Mb hard drive, The snapshot does not work any more. I have tried everything I can think of but I'm no expert with computers.
I've disconnected the hard drive and taken out the half meg card from underneath, plugged in the master disk of Workbench and it still does not work.
I've even tried Disk Doctor on dfO: and dhO: but this shows no fault. It's driving me crazy because every time I open dhO:, dhl: or dh2: I have to keep on stretching the windows open and all other windows to get to all the other programs and games.
Please help me, it's driving me mad.
I don't think it's a fault with Workbench because this problem occurred after it was installed on the hard drive.
But, as I said it won’t work even with the drive off and on the original Workbench disk. Where has snapshot gone?
Mr K Curtis, Croydon r Snapshot on the A500 (and all 1.3 Amigas) icorks in a mysterious way
- compared to Workbench 2 that is, As you are probably aware, to
snapshot one icon you should click on it then select snap
shot. To get Workbench to remember the position of a windoii'
you would therefore expect to click on a window then select
snapshot. Not so, as the WBI.3 snapshot only works when an icon
has been selected.
In order to snapshot a window, resize and position it as required then click on the drawer icon that was used to open it and snapshot that. For instance, if you had a drawer called Fred you tvould open the drawer, position the window, click on the Fred icon then select snapshot. I If you wanted to position the window so that it obscured its drawer icon, you would have to use extended select. In other words hold down the Shift key, click on the drawer icon, position the window over the icon, snapshot then release the Shift key.
A1200 printer Incompatibility Wbf9 We all knew that some software tw would not work on the A1200 r and some discovered that addon floppy drives could be a problem but have you heard of a printer that appears to be incompatible?
I own a Canon PW1080A 9-pin dot matrix. I purchased it eight years ago to use with my old Beeb. Three years ago I bought an Amiga 500 with which it still worked satisfactorily.
Having decided to upgrade to a hard disk A1200, while I was buying it from We Serve in Portsea I happened to mention which printer I used.
They told me that a previous customer had found that it would not work with the
1200. To be honest I did not believe them but no matter which
driver or DIP settings I use I cannot make it work other
than the printer initialising when switching the computer
on or off.
I wrote to Commodore and Canon six weeks ago but have not received a reply from either. Please can you help.
Derek Nunn, Hassocks.
R Other than what you have told us, we don't have any knowledge of compatibility problems with this printer. If any other readers contact us with details of how to get it lurking with an AI200 ITECHNICAL HELP we will lei you know through these pages.
In the meantime, you could try phoning Canon with details of the A1200 port pins to see if they can help. You could also call Wang out to check your machine as it has a one-year on-site warranty.
CineMorph Junior & Dpaint ACAS I own an A600 and have just KjP bought the August issue of your magazine. I am having problems trying to load my own files created with Deluxe Paint 3 into CineMorph Jr.
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.
I have tried putting JPG on the end of all the filenames, but when 1 try to load them, no picture comes up on either the source or destination windows.
Also, how do 1 access Disk Doctor? I have heard that it is on the Workbench disk but cannot find it.
I Allonby, Rotherham r CineMorph Junior is capable of handling Dpaint pictures but, by the sounds of things, the ones that you are trying to load take up too much RAM The solution is to load your pictures into Dpaint as brushes, half their size then saw them to disk before loading CineMorph Junior.
Disk Doctor was not included with Workbench 2 and is no great loss. You would be better off with a utility like Disksalv2 - and where would you find such a marvellous program? Look no further than the October CoverDisk.
Mouse Joystick switcher I am a student in my tenth year at Holy Family College. I am currently carrying out research for my GCSE course in Design and Technology.
R Using CrossDos With Maxiplan I read with interest your reply to Martin grundy about installing Maxiplan on Tf~ hard disk and running it from Workbench. I don't have a hard dnve but run 7 my wordprocessors and so on from Workbench, so I copied the explode library to my Workbench libs drawer and it runs OK.
My problem is that I have installed CrossDos on a Workbench disk and while WordPerfect and Kindwords recognise CrossDos. Maxiplan doesn't.
On WordPerfect or Kindwords the file requesters both show DFOi PCO: or DF1 : PCi: but not Maxiplan. Any suggestions please?
Both my wife and I are new to computing as we only bought the machine and external drive in February this year. I find the Shell frustrating if you get your spaces and colons in the wrong places.
A little tip I picked up in one of the mags I read each month is that if you select Show All files from the Workbench screen instead of going into the Shell, you can move, copy, delete and so on from the Workbench.
Also, to take up less room, select View By Name from the pull-down menus. I think though, these two options are only on WB2 and above but I'm not sure, but it makes life a lot easier if like me you’re not techie.
Peter Fox, Doncaster rMeny thanks for passing on the Workbench tip, if you have found it useful then we are sure there are other newcomers who will also find it beneficial. In answer to your CrossDos query, try typing PCO: into the path field of the file requester.
The research that I collect should help me produce an electrical or mechanical device. For my project 1 have decided to investigate a mouse joystick switcher for my Amiga 500, such as the RoboShift device.
I would be very grateful for any information concerning the mouse joystick switcher, especially the inner workings of such a device. Again, thank you in advance for helping me out.
Richie Prado. London rAs you are working towards an examination it would be unfair on other candidates for us to explain exactly how a mouse joystick switcher works.
However you might care to look in the Amiga System Programmer’s Guide from Abacus IISBN 1-55755-034-4) which describes the gameport hardware and how it is used.
Colour laser printers ¦ w s a long-time subscriber to Ww your excellent magazine I value W your opinions on all things Amiga and would therefore like to ask you about a subject that no Amiga magazine seems to touch on: Colour laser printers.
At present 1 run an A4000 030 (a superb machine) which is connected to a Panasonic KX-P4420 laser printer (also a fine machine) to produce pictures, scanned images, verses and so on using PageStream, Art Expression, Wordworth and Dpaint IV which I then sell to friends for personalised presents for christenings, birthdays... you get the picture (ha ha!).
Of course, the Panasonic is a mono non-PostScript printer and I am sure my portfolio (and my sales!) Would increase if I could offer my customers a more colourful product.
I already own an NEC P90 colour dot matrix printer so I know dot matrix is definitely out. And my test drives of inkjets such as the HP550C show that these printers also fall short in producing consumer- acceptable quality.
At last, we reach colour laser PostScript printers! Yes, I know they are expensive - a QMS Colorscript is £3,000+ and the NEC Colormate PS 80 is well over £4,000 (they are advertised in a PC magazine), but if they produce colour images to the quality of a mono laser I would seriously consider purchasing one.
Presumably, being PostScript they can be driven by the Postscript printer driver Open Sesame I would like all my CovorDisks while booting to MH ask lor a password to con tmue loading Are there any com mands which I could add to the startup-sequence which would do this? Or would I have to writo a pro j gram and add it to the startup sequence? If this is the case. I own Amiga Basic. Amos. HiSoft Basic and Devpac 2 Which should I use9 I have written a password program in Amiga Basic but I don't know how or if it can be added to the startup sequence to run while booting Could you please help me?
Janet Haloway. Rugby A It would be pointless to liy to protect a CoverDisk because J tk anyone who wanted to use it without your permission could go out and buy their own copy (or send oft lor back issues).
Even if you did wnte your own program. What is there that would prevent someone by-passing your protection?
Answer nothing installed on my hard disk, yes? If not, the manufacturers should be able to produce a driver if they want to make a sale.
These printers seem to come with 4Mb or 8Mb of memory as standard - is this sufficient to produce a full colour A4 picture?
Before I get carried away and start asking too many questions about a specific product, perhaps you would consider running a one-off comparison test between various colour laser printers?
It's something none of the other Amiga magazines have done yet, as far as I can remember, so there could be a little one- upmanship for you.
Thanks for taking the time to read thi letter and any advice from your good selves would be gratefully received.
Philip Hawkins, Berks rll should be possible to use Ihe PostScript driver with any PostScript printer. We expect that any manufacturer worth their salt would go out of their my to help you if this was found not to be the case.
The amount of printer memory does not affect whether or not a full colour A4 picture can be output. However, the larger the printer buffer, the less time your Amiga will be tied up. A 4Mb buffer should be just about the right amount to hold an A4 page i but clearly haring 8Mb would be your best ofition.

Scribble Office Scribble PD V022 Here’s one of those PD disks that combines a load of previously available programs (although 1 must admit I've seen less than all of them before) which are, unsurprisingly, aimed at the Amiga-run home office.
The Workbench has been customised, basically with the addition of a futuristic space-style font (although the option is there to change this should you wish by messing with the Startup sequence).
There's also a screen saver, which is a nice addition. So here are the programs concerned: A bit ot light rtlM with noughts and iroua, that i Tic Tat Tot Run QED window displays a cursor, and one then types in any STD code. The program simply displays on the map where the region covered by your chosen STD code is (0663 is New Mills, Derbyshire, for instance) and tells you textuallv the area's name, too, One omission is the categorising of This is a wordprocessor, and not a bad one at that. As well as adequate and indeed rather flexible editing functions, you can cut and edit letters,
words, lines and so on, and take advantage of page-based features using the Shift Amiga set of functions. All of these are also shown on menus across the top of the screen.
Other features which might surprise include a macro facility, adjustable tabs and margins (good for pre-printing formatting), and even the ability1 to replace tabs with spaces, so that when you hit the Tab key you actually get a number of spaces instead.
Roberta Smith PD Famed for their continuing series of games compilations. Assassins 100 is a typical three-gamed compilation with Assassin's usual function-key control and very neat menu system for selecting between them.
You get Bload Runner, which is a very odd and strangely addictive platformer with tiny sprites that make lemmings look like the biggest icons this side of the Phoenix bonus stage!
You must run around the screen, up and down ladders, avoiding the tiny men who come for you by digging holes, These make the men turn into what look to me like hay bales, which you then run into. They then disappear. Confused? Don't be. Just be intrigued. Oh, and when you've got it and worked out what it's all about, please let me know!
Next up is Solitaire, a game which I'm mercifully more aware of. Coming from Australia, this version contains all the usual tweaks (timer, show cards, undo Iasi move and so on ) and has some very nice graphics complementing the classic gameplay.
Good anywhere, Solitaire ports across to the Amiga quite happily and is as absorbing as your propensity to play single-person card games for hours on end.
Finally, Monaco is a racing game which, although basic, is very fast and smooth and has a gorgeous picture of Monaco itself as an opening screen.
There are no bends - basically you stop cars driving up your rear and make sure you don't run into other cars, while negotiating sun, snow and night (where all you can see is what your headlights illuminate).
And it's surprisingly fun, too, being a little like those early, frantic and furious but laughably simple orcado driving sims with a seat and a steering wheel. Nice!
This kind of feature would be useful in, for instance, experimenting to find the best ivj Prt?i PaaOir possible format for exporting Run QED files to other wordprocessors.
Of course as PD, something must give.
There's no dictionary or font handling, and the whole thing does look a little basic, but nevertheless you can swap and change the colours to make it look a little more how you might want it, and as part of a bundle at this price, Run QED is a Assassins Games 100 Show STD Simple (indeed, the title is rather self- explanatory) but it's one of those programs you sit and mess with for as long as it takes for you to stop yourself!
Show STD displays a map of the British Isles and a small window. Clicking on the metropolitan codes into areas. "Outer London" for 081 is hardly specific - maybe a later version will include separate, larger maps of the metropolitan regions so that "061-427“ elicits "Marple, Cheshire" (for it is there) rather than "Manchester".
Nevertheless, it's a good little program to have kicking around your hard drive, and a great time-waster should you have ten minutes spare.
CalcKey This is a great little calculator which can run in the background while you're doing something else, only popping up when you need it.
Pressing Alt and = displays the calculator's window, where one notices that as well as the usual calculator functions, this model incorporates A to F across the top of its keys (mouse-click or keyboard activated) meaning decimal to hex and vice versa conversions are possible.
It's a great accessory for coders who might need to use such a feature regularly, and indeed for anyone who often feels the need to reach for a calculator while computing, It's a pain to cut out of your Virus Chetker 6.28 In lull operation Calling all PD libraries... ...and individuals with anything remotely worth my while having a peek at.

Organised!
With its name changed from FiloFax to something presumably a bit less inflammatory, Organised! Is a very impressive personal organiser, with an interface very deliberately designed to mock the real thing.
You are shown a double page of an open FiloFax. To move backwards and forward you simple click on the page turning gadgets, or to move to a different section (function) you can click on the page dividers.
Different functions include a calendar, which can go forward and backwards as many years as you wish at the click of a button; a daily diary, which again is instantly flick-through-able; and a large address book, so you’ll never have a full- up "5" page again!
Incidentally, there’s a RIP gadget at the bottom of every address page, so exgirl boyfriends and other fallen from grace contacts can be removed at will As well as a simple notebook, there » a preferences page tucked at the back, which allows you to mess with colours, load and save data, configure the screen saver and so on.
This is a novel and attractive personal organiser which does its job extremely well If you spend enough time in front of your computer to set up and use such a program, you won’t go far wrong with this one.
The Money Program l feel really guilty ever)' time I see one of these personal money organiser program- However, if you have more dedication than me and are prepared to use them on a regular basis (a built-in clock in your Complct and - D Copy Is one ot the best disk copiers around .Amiga will help too, because you'll have to type the date in every time you start the program otherwise), such programs can help you to keep a firm grip on your money Options include the ability to enter vour transactions, view them as you would on a bank statement, get a balance, run multiple accounts (a savings
account, a high interest number, a woefully-empty current account, and so on) and even - should you wish to precipitate that heart attack - view your account as a graph.
They've made judicial use of the colour red here, too.
It’s a nice program, but I’m still not convinced that much more than a handful of highly organised people actually use programs like this Still. I might well be proved wrong... Tic Tac Toe For some light relief in-between sorting out your accounts, writing to your bank manager and looking up vour granny’s STD code, Tic Tac Toe is a computer version of noughts and crosses - a corporate distraction put on here, presumably, for completion's sake.
• Overall, Scribble Office is an admirable, well presented and
useful suite of programs, which rise above the crowd due to
their nice interface and overall consistency If you fancy
more than two of these programs, buy the disk.
PD Compilation Holmes Brothers PD This compilation is nicely presented in a bag with its contents, and it does indeed contain some rather interesting and often downright useful stuff.
Among it is Virus Checker 6.28 (nice «r.
ITiaa This month’s Art award goes to Carl Inc - a name which might ring bells with regular readers of this column, as one ot his animations (a Chnstmas scene, it I recall correctly) got a nght slagging courtesy of moi.
However, either I've mellowed or Carl has improved his programming techniques, because while Circus (this demo) follows his usual formula of presenting a cartoon scene where all the characters do little things over and over again, all of which are amusing, I found it realty enjoyable.
It's the little touches, like the eyeballs of the crowd all following in unison when the human cannonball shoots through the roof of the arcus marquee, that make it for me.
I was also rather amused by the down and the dog which jumps through a hoop on demand Indeed, wherever on the screen you look you see something chuckJe-worthy taking place.
It's a nice little animation, and one that makes up in humour for what it lacks in originality.
And up to date); NumPad, a neat little utility for all you A600 owners struggling with flight sims and CAD packages demanding the use of a keypad, which simulates the aforesaid; Degrader, a little utility which allows you to run earlier games on later Workbench 2 3 machines (A500+, A600, A1200, A4000); 452 (!)
Cheats; a number of archivers and dearchivers; and Pyro, an attractive screen saver.
If you're after just one of these, 1 can guarantee that once you get the disk there’ll be something else on there to your liking as well. A bumper value bundle.
Dcopy 2 Roberta Smith PD I ain’t going to go into the politics of disk copying, but suffice to say that there are justifiable circumstances in which you w c%m Right Way Roberta Smith This ts a German program which mercifully contains enough English to make it playable by your average Island-based xenophobe . Once you're past the seemingly endless plethora ol opening screens, you find yourself, joystick-clasped, guiding a load of tiny Lemming-like creature to an exit It sounds a little like Lemmings, doesn't it? The difference is that here you don't have any control at all over the creatures
themselves.
No, your task is to move the objects that make up the screen into such positions that the lemmings" can make their way salety through.
It’s a novel variation, addictive to boot, and has the added obscure value ol having come Irom deepest Geimany (I think). One worthy of further investigation might wish to back up a disk which the manufacturers have tried their hardest to stop you from backing up.
To use Dcopy2 to its full potential requires experience of trying to copy disks and a good read of the documentation, but once you've acquired a modicum of knowledge about the subject you'll find this new version of an old classic to be powerful and flexible Code Mungus Nicholas Smith It's quite easy to write programs to test the user on a certain subject. It's peanuts to create the kind of code needed to prompt a question, take an answer from that there’s no worth in such programs.
Indeed, if they are carefully tailored to a genuinely useful subject area, they get my HyfcbfUtti Urttn L_ Uyrstcn -lay- iqtit *91-1993 by P»f» H Dev ice Sc in hhw Operation Semins iton I £ms« Hock nits Dirt Errort I 2711 M 4 I f*~ feinrinf Result! » DM: ¦EXTMS 0Ilt-2lFtM1oftft»r*Gfx 11oniteM3.lfx EXTRAS DiA-21FI(A1o«it r*GfxA1nn»ter19. fk tXlMS MA-21FK ’l«oi*« 1 * ;tir1!.ffx Ext (tAS IR-2tf SC St vie* StytdMfx

And so it is with the mysteriously named Code Mungus. Not a secret service code, this is actually referring to the altogether less enigmatic but infinitely more useful highway code.
The program asks you ten question of a textual nature ("What do three lines on the kerb mean?" For instance) followed by ten road sign questions, where you get a full colour representation of the road sign complete with a question.
After a total of 20 questions, you're given a mark and an author's personal comment ("OK but could do better" - you know, that kind of thing).
It's a simple program, but a highly useful one, It helped me to brush up on a few things I definitely should have known, and for those learning to drive, it would prove invaluable.
DiskSalv 2 Dynamic Designs This is a very slick, very well presented, and above all, very functional disk repair utility, along the lines of a program wa use called Norton Utilities on the Macfl (which, needless to sav, costs an arm and!
A leg).
On the Amiga side, DiskSalv 2 is bashl callv like the legendary Fixdisk, except 41 boast a few improvements to make it far!
More useful to today's Amiga user.
The 49Mb limit imposed on Fixdisk by itself - meaning users of half-docent sized hard drives were not fully catered for - if not a problem in DiskSalv, and it is fully conversant with all the new file and folders types associated with Workbench 2 and 3 machines.
It looks good, works well and is an| absolute must for anyone without such a utility, or bugged by one of the limitations!
That DiskSalv 2 can circumvent.

The CD-I challenge Philips* CD-I could be CD32's major competition. So how does it shape up?
CD3B Gamer The best CD32 games reviewed and previewed, including an interview with CD32 developers disk to disc With the arrival of CD3P, the entire video games market is about to change for ever.
Amiga Computing takes a look at the future and the mouthwatering entertainment we can all expect from it Den years ago, the vast majority of computer gamers were loading their favourite games from domestic tape recorders and waiting up to 15 minutes tor the 64k or so ot game data to transfer to their machine's memory chips.
Floppy disks and hard drives were around at the time, Put they were mostly the preserve of much more expensive machines.
A disk drive for the C64 holding only 170k of data on 5.25in disks, and almost as slow as tape, cost £30 more than an A600 does today, and hard dnves of more than 10Mb in capacity were considered to be huge.
Spectrum owners who bought Microdrives were astonished by the speed and flexibility of the device, which illustrates just how little we all expected.
With the advent of the Atari ST and the Amiga, we leaped from 8-bit to 16-brt, from tape to floppy, and the modern home computer games market was bom. Few had hard drives, and CD, never mind CD-ROM, was still on the drawing board.
In 1993 the next step on the evolutionary ladder is being taken by machines such as CD-I. Mega CD, and the superb new CD32.
For owners ot the new Amiga, floppy-based games with their slow loading times and multiple disk swaps will be nothing more than a fading memory, and the restndions of the storage medium will be blown away by the compad disc's 600Mo of space.
It is dear that although the technology built in to the CD32 is little drfferent from the A1200, its alliance of 32-bd power and the CD medium will result in a whole new generation of games, Even more dramatic improvements are promised by full motion vtdeo (FMV) when Commodore release the Mpeg add-on card between now and Chnstmas. Though whether software houses will use FMV m adual games is a moot point.
What we can promise you rs an explosion in gaming quality, music videos on CD. And feature films with fuP digital v*deo and CD-quality sound which never get chewed up, never look like a snowstorm, and which do away with the tracking button on VCRs.
The games explosion may take six months or more - until the software houses really get their teeth into this new Amiga - but from the early s»gns and screenshots we've seen and included in these pages, you'll agree that the fuse has been well and truly lit.
All this year marketing suits and trend analysts across the leisure industry have been hitting the trail, profit forecasts in one hand and CD in the other, to preach the new faith to the press and the buying public.
CD is on the verge ot a second coming, they tell us.
With record, film, and video games sectors about to meet in the middle for the biggest explosion in the leisure field snce Space Invaders.
Cross-fertilisation is nothing new - games have always leeched off the film and music rxJuStry for ideas, soundtracks, and movie licences. What is new this year is that for the first time, all three types ot entertainment are beginning to appear on the same medium and even the same disc.
The opportunities for cashing in are endless, and it is this scent of fresh meat which has set the big boys m the expensive Italian suits to quivering with dollar-drugged excitement. New markets in the leisure field are hard to come by, but this one still has the wrapping paper on.
Take the typical computer game movie tie-in as an example. Al present the marketing possibilities are good, with extra publicity for both game and film, T-shirts, posters, and stickers in the box, and PR executives hyping Blow starter Many observers at the birth of Video CD took delight in predicting that the market was going to explode, but an initial burst of sales is unlikely. CD32 will see huge sales because its games software will be superb, but it will be a long hard slog for straightforward Video CD players.
In the first year of commercially viable audio CD.
Only around 20.000 players were sold in Ihe UK, mostly to classical music buffs who were eager for compact dsc's crystal dear sound quality. The first year of Video CO is likely to see a repeat of this sales curve.
Big bang Movie buffs with generous wallets have already shown that they will fork out impressive sums on 12 inch Laserdisc machines, a high-end expensive format which has seen a steady increase in support by way of the sort of cun films which aficionados crave.
This section of the movie-watching community will be the first to jump on Video CD. Closely followed by music fans to whom the digital rock video with perfect sound appeals.
Unfortunately, the rest of us will probably stick with our audio Cds and VCRs for a while, held back by the inertia of owning perhaps hundreds of pounds worth of movies on tape. This will last as long as it takes for the standard to grow until the benefits make it too good to pass up. And if high street shops can offer a service whereby tapes are transferred to CD in the same way a Kodak shop will pul snapshots on Photo-CD, the take- up rate could be huge.
Watch for a rapid boom around Christmas 1994 and a drop in the pnce of Video CD players once competition stiffens. With Philips. NEC, Sony and the rest battling for market share, the Video CD player will be as common m two years as the audio CD player has become today.
It all until they drop. By next year, an extra dimension will have been added imagine popping Steven Seagal's latest blockbuster (in which he finally opens his eyes) into a CD32. Watching five minutes of FMV video trailer, then browsing through a selection of Ham8 stills from the move's action sequences before proceeding to the game.
Imagine then a game involving huge chunks of action digitised directly from the moyie, superb stereo movie soundtrack, and featuring Mr Seagal himself (fully digitised of course) as the game's mam proponent of bloody mayhem Does this sound better than a box containing a poster, a set of stick-on Seagal eyebrows, and a game with one inch hgh spntes chasing each other across 32-cotour platforms to the strain of yet another mind-btowmgly banal tune9 If not, you must be one of those people who insisted that the text adventure would always be supenor to those with crude graphics.
If the scenario sounds good from a consumer’s point of view, take a mmuie to see things from the viewpoint of our salivating salesperson. 600Mb of dec space - 74 minutes of ful mobon video when using Mpeg - means ample room for advertising, 0898 competitions, catalogues, information services, and a host of other promotional material all on the same disc as the much more welcome film. Game, and soundtrack.
The notion of watching films and proper TV-style ads on a CD dec seems strange al the moment, but it won’t be long before it is as accepted as watching a film playing off a piece of magnetic tape. One look at CD32 going through its FMV paces will be enough to convince anyone.
Again, if Video CD takes off in the mass market, the boredom of fast tonvarding through the first two episodes of Biackadder to reach your favourite will be replaced by simply lumping between tracks in exactly the same way as fbppmg through an audio CD album.
A luxury 9t first, this will soon become commonplace and the notion of using a VCR for viewing commercial movies mil seem rather primitive.
A spokesman from Philips, main moving force behind CD-I, confirmed that a number of major manufacturers are We'll give people music on toenails and egg shells if that's what they want Jefi Clark-Meads, British Phonographic Industry k working on their own CD players which, though no: designed to play games, will be compatible with Video CD and which will feature Mpeg chips either as add-ons or as an integral facility.
In Ihe near future it is hoped that Mpeg ctops will come down in price enough to make them viable as standaro technology on all such players.
Al this point, the mass market for Video CD should be confirmed and the big music and video companies should weigh m with their massive financial muscle. Games on CD-ROM will, if anything, be by far the smallest section of the new market.
Ask yourself if the number of titles available on all home computers comes close to scratching the surface of the array of tapes. Ips, and videos on sale in thousands of high street shops, and your answer should point to the relative sizes of the markets.
Given the way that games, movies and music should be As the music, video, and computer games industries rush towards each other at high speed, Stevie Kennedy looks at what the result of the collision might be Failing formats spring to mind as formats which seemed to have a lot going for them but which died horrible commercial deaths Betamax failed because it was more expensive, even if of a higher quality than VHS, and DAT took a dive because it was overkil and much more expensive than CD. Finally.
MSX failed because though cheap and well supported by Japanese electronics companies, it was the technical equivalent of a dead dog Video CD will succeed because it about it and saving it for the launch of the FMV card, which now looks set for release in the second halt of October Obviously, when movie companies start to take an interest, the smell of money becomes almost overpowering.
With such high-powered interest and the possibilities offered to all sorts ot companies by Video CD, 1994 could be the year of the five inch disc, and any new owners of CD32 can rest safe m the knowledge that they are in it at ground level t RE!
ORLD I i If xmmg together in one big Video CD marketplace, the xportunrties for profit are immense, a sure way of ensur- ng mat the format really takes off With so much competition these days between the afferent ways in which we can spend our leisure time, sales in most areas have suffered from the competition of rompletefy different media, Music sales in particular have seen hit by computer game sales, and if the music industry can make a push in a new market it wiN certainly do so.
A number of music videos are already slated for production in Video CD format, mostly live concerts, ncluding U2's Achtung Baby, and more are bound to Wlow. CD mastenng costs are as little as 35p per disc when bulk duplication is used, and the cost per minute of digitising video footage in Mpeg format is steadily decreasing.
Hollywood too is beginning to get steamed up around tne collar by the possrtilities of releasing films in a format which would never degrade (no more muffled soundtracks and white lines) and which would meet the buffs hunger for the best quality Paramount studios, part of the MCA group which has a big interest in 3DO. Have signed a deal already with Philips to produce movies on CD and they expect 30 to 50 titles to be available this side of Christmas.
Commodore have their own movie link-up, but are saying nothing Video CD is based around the Mpeg t protocols, agreed on paper a couple of years ago and now appeanng in physical form as Mpeg decoder chips.
The format sets out how video and audio signals will be compressed tor storage on CD then decompressed as they are played, and has finally managed to gam enough support to be an industry standard Other competing formats have failed, though, so why should this one succeed? Betamax videos. Digital Audio Tape and MSX computers meets the mam benchmarks for any new standard. Simply put, the technology on which it is based is available now and at a commercially viable price, and it offers a format which provides good marketing opportunities. If a new gadget is reasonable value for money and
does something nothing else can do. It wW succeed.
Of course, the fmal judgement will be down to you and me and whether we spend our hard-earned pennies on it I know what I'm going to do - what about you lot?

And formulae for encoding and decodng files, Mpeg gradually gained acceptance from most of the b g players in the market and the standard was bom on 6 December.
1991 as ISO draft standard CD11172.
Mpeg files can be created and played back on an accelerated Amiga, and shareware Mpeg player programs already exist to make viewing Mpeg movies possible, but the nature of the intense mathematics of decoding the files necessitated the production of specialty designed chips whose sole purpose in life was to cope with this operation.
The passage from drawing board to commercial Mpeg decoder add-ons has been slow, but ts now compleie.
In bnef (Mpeg's precise technical format stretches to a 100-page book), an Mpeg signal is a data stream consisting of two parts: A system stream which holds information about timing and so on, and a compression layer which holds the compressed picture and audk? Data. An Mpeg decoding system therefore contains a number of chips.
The first is a system decoder, which spits the pcture, audio, and timing information into three separate streams.
Each of the picture and audio streams are then sent to their own decoding chips, and the timing information is applied to both as decompression takes place so that the newly decoded data comes out in an intelligible video signal with the actors' voices ooincidng with their lip movements.
To compress the immense amounts of data being shoved out by a video in the first place, an Mpeg encoder is used to store the frames in a very clever fashion. However, anyone who has ever used Dpamt to create an animation should be able to relate to the process.
The difference between one frame and another in any Dpamt amm is usually fairly small, much smaller m terms ol bytes than the amount of data in a full frame. It is therefore a lot easier to store the second frame as a representation ot the differences between itself and the preceding frame Get it?
In other words, frame two is stored as the computer equivalent of “same as last time except the txt in the top left hand comer just moved to its right*. In Dpaint. This is known as a Delta, whereas in Mpeg it is called a Predicted Picture.
Or P-Pidure.
These use Intra Pictures, pictures stored as complete VIDEO STREAM VIDEO DECODER (CL450) SYSTEM TIMING INFORMATION DECODER AUDIO STREAM AUDIO DECODER DECOMPRESSED VIDEO MPEG STREAM DECOMPRESSED AUDIO This Is how a bamic Mug.decodcr system links tin mala compression has always been one of the most important utilities on computer systems with finite storage and limited memory, but it wasn't until recently that this standard procedure was applied to graphics in such a way as to improve the way we use them The first accepted standard was Jpeg, named after the Joint Photographic Experts Group
which was formed by researchers m the fields of computers and photography to devise a common way of storing masses of data without tolling picture quality Jpeg works by using complex mathematical methods to scan a graphic and encrypt it in such a way that information normaty stored n. say, IFF or TIFF or GIF formats, is compressed into a much more economical and universally accepted form, Depending on the amount of compression used, picture quality once the Jpeg is decoded can be virtually identical to the original even though the Jpeg file itself can be one tenth the size on disk. The only
problem with Jpegs is that they take a lot of decoding, even on an A4000. And are suitable only for single image files, For animated images, particularly large digitised graphics. A new standard was required, and in May 1988 the Motion Picture Experts Group (Mpeg) was formed under the auspices of the International Standards Organisation (ISO). Starting with a set of proposals on paper which involved nothing more than complex algorithms, calcula- The whizz chips Mpeg has finally made it from drawing bnard to full production. Let's see what it is and why it is so important frames, for
reference when predicting what motion changes will have taken place by the time their turn comes to be shown. There is an l-Pidure every half second to provide enough reference points for accurate pcedction and to fill the important role of providing reference points in the stream.
Augmenting the I- and P-Pictures are the Pictures, or Bidirectional Pictures, which look forward and backward al the same time to previous and following frames in order to guess how they will have changed. Compressing down far smaller than any other type, there are two B-Pitfures for every P-Picture and it is these which give Mpeg its excellent compression rates.
An intelligent function of the Mpeg algorithm is to alter its compression method to suit the needs of a particular digitised sequence. If. For example, the sequence will be accessed randomly by the user - perhaps to enable the editing together of digiiaJ video footage to a target VCR - the number of 1-Pictures is set to two per second, and decreased when a piece of footage will never be accessed in this way.
For example, a rock video transferred to CD would not require many I-Pictvres, but a library of computer animations might need to be accessed at almost any point. Mpeg provides flexibility for all occasions, and though Mpeg-2 ts already on the drawing board, like the now very old VMS format it is highly unlikely that Mpeg 1 will be bypassed as an industry standard for many years to come.
COBS INTE What*5 in and parallax effects. The much mproved sprites are bigger and more colourful, and graphics speed is greater than on ECS machines.
In combination with 2Mb of 32-bit RAM and a 68020.
These elements form a powerful partnership wtveh should be capable of handing just about anything thrown at it, AGA's so-called *4x* bimer. The chip responsible for transfernng large blocks of graphic data from RAM to screen, can throw millions of bytes at the screen every seoond. Making possible the smooth, fast gameplay we've all come to expect.
As the AGA chip set s only a year old, games programmers are still explonng the improvements which can be gained by coding specifically for it, and we are only now starting to see the benefits in the shape of enhanced A1200 versions of games.
In some cases, the 68EC020's lack of power in relation to the 48§ win see some games run slower than therf PC equivalents, but as most are programmed with the massive user base of 386 users in mind, there should be preoous few of these.
Given time to properly exploit the AGA chips and increasing experience with the possibilities of CD-ROM. Companies which in the past have stretched the A5QQ to its limits will no doubt bring us a feast of superb games. Having seen the delights on offer from the first batch, we can only lick our collective lips at the thought of what will appear on our shelves next year.
Conversions galore Ranar chip, which is designed to access PC-style graphics from disc or memory, then convert them at lightning fast speed to Amiga graphics.
In the PC world, a game which uses texture mapping (see the landscapes on Falcon 3 for an example) or a great deal of shifting huge pseudo-sprites around (as m Wing Commander) stores its graphics in what is called byte-per-pixel format.
This otherwise inflexible system is a great advantage for games because it means each pixel is stored in memory as a single byte rather than as part of a muitipie-bnplane image, which means it takes onfy one memory write to change its colour rather than the eight it would take for an 8-twt image (256 colours) on the Amiga.
In effect, this mean that games houses will be able to use exactly the same graphics on the Amiga and PC ? Y the lime of its release, the Amiga 1200 had only its pnce lag to offer as a surprise. Most of us were prepared for a £499 launch, so £399 was a pleasant surprise and guaranteed an rwal wave of sales.
C032, on the other hand, was kept much more under wraps by Commodore, the scarcity of pre-launch information
- lade all the more unusual because several games oompa- T8S
received prototypes six months in advance.
The result was that a collection of duff rumours and speculation kept us all guessing more or less until launch day.
Magazines printed 'best guess* stories about the
- machine’s specs and produced artist’s impressions with widely
varying deg'ees of accuracy, and rumours that the machine might
have a 68030 or even Mpeg chips built in
* ere rife.
Through all of this, Commodore kept more or less silent, iresumably because they didn't want speculation about spec- ‘catrnns and price points io spoil the party when their latest debutante finally came out.
The strategy was a success, and only the muted disappointment that CD32's price was more than the hoped-for £250 marred an otherwise perfect launch. A reaction which Commodore could not have predicted was the grudging acceptance of the unit's vital statistics.
Perhaps they thought that a 32-bit machine with 2Mb RAM. Near 24-bit graphics, and a CD-ROM drive was good enough for most people, but grumbles could still be heard emanating from some developers. Why?
CD32 is based around a 32-bit 68EC020 chip running at 14MHz and delivering between three and five times the power of a 68000 as found in the A500 and A600.
'With such a CPU. CD32 is easily the most powerful of the ft) opbons on offer, and blows away both Mega CD and CD-I r terms of raw speed.
However, games developers have complained that it still sn't powerful enough. Comparing the machine to the usual 486 PC games machine with CD-ROM dnve. Some have mumbled that CD32 wll be unable to keep up in terms of soeed with the faster Pcs and that as a result some PC CD- ROM games will not be convertible.
Significantly, most of the grumblers are those who have yet to produce for the format, Those who have had prototypes and have been coding funousfy for months are very pleased wth the hardware.
The AGA chip set gives game programmers the advantage of using dual playfietd graphics for ultra smooch scrolling Though there is a long list of brand new games waiting to be released on CD. It would be a fool who ignored the fact that many companies will simply convert old Amiga games to run off CD.
Such bundling no doubt offers great value for money, but the only conversions which will take advantage of the machine's extra colours will be those which come over from the PC.
CD32 has an extra chip, called a the box?
C03E is set to wow and amaze users with the quality of its games, but what makes the little chap tick?
Versions of a game, making it easy both to convert existing games and to develop new games for both machines at the same time.
Some of the immediate benefits will be seen in games like Dreamweb and Cyberspace, and it won't be long before a steady stream of big 256-colour games start to roll off the duplicating machines.

Compromise 5onic sinks ?n CD Mega CO has the publicity, the
profile, and the user base, but has it got the quality the
public demands7 running all year and is expecied to go into
top gear for what must surely be 16- bit's last big Christmas,
If the package arrives with a couple of good CD games such as
Sewer Shark. Mega CD might yet have a good Chnstmas and could
yet steal some of the thunder from CD32 if Commodore's much
superior machine is outshone in the PR department With the
shift in technology going against Sega, the only weapon left
to them is marketing muscle, a commodity which they have in
plentiful supply ince the phenomenal success of the Mega
Drive, which has seen its sales m the UK climb towards one
million, many industry figures have become mesmensed by the
onental threat to other games machines.
However, the sluggish sales of Mega CD and the poor quality of many of the games available for it have exposed a gaping chink in Sonic's armour which most now believe spells the end of the Sega invasion.
Mega CD is, technologically, an old unit. Based on the 16-bit Mega Drive, it is firmly anchored in yesterday s chips, though the machine does have several advantages over its cartridge-based brother BEST GAMES Commodore must cling to the hope that the British public aren't as stupid as some marketing stuffed suits seem to think, and that they won't be tooled by mutton dressed as lamb.
In the end, as with the other two competing systems, the final winner - in the short term at least - will be the one with the best games, and the Sega is certainly out of the running on that score.
In terms of pnee. Mega CD is rather expensive for a 16- bit system, currently selling for £370 including the Mega Drive, or £270 without This puts it at a distinct disadvantage to CD32, which can boast not only better technology, but a lower price tag.
However, Sega's long established brand name is firmly emblazoned m the minds of hundreds of thousands of games players, and it may take a while for such advantages to wipe it out.
A 64k RAM buffer for faster loading of data from disc and a 12.5MHz 68000 cfvp - twee as fast as the Mega Drive - ensure that Mega CD games will run faster and smoother Plan those on the original Mega Drive, and it goes without saying that CD provides unique games opportunities.
The most exciting new Mega CD title. Sewer Shark, makes extensive use of digitised footage for its intro sequences and packs a huge amount of game data onto the disc.
However, it has no more colours on screen than any standard Mega Dnve game (64 from a palette ot 512) and uses the same 8-bit PCM sound which, without reverb, sounds no better than the Amiga's output.
Mega CD does have the ability to play audio Cds and those m the CD+G (G for graphics) format, but it has no faoiity whereby FMV can be added, so owners win never be able to join in the Video CD boom or watch feature films on their games machine.
Sega Mega CD Price: £370 with uga Drive Available; Non RAM: 128k Graphic*: 64 colours from 512 CPU: 12.5MHz E8000 FMV: Mot available In addition, the fact that Sega are being left behind on a world-wide CD standard is a bad omen for the future Not all «s bad news lor Sega, though, as they at least have thousands of units in living rooms nationwide, and ample stocks in the high street to ensure an aggressive presence. The Sega TV advertising campaign has been Mega CD games Most of the Mega CD games released at the machine's launch were, predictably enough, fairly straightforward conversions
from old Mega Dnve games. However, as the months have gone by, proper CD titles have started to emerge.
The first to take real advantage of Mega CD was probably Jaguar XJ220. Superior to any racing game on the cartndge system with fast, smooth gameplay and lots of it. Acres ol intro animation and a quality soundtrack gave Sega owners a taste of what CD could do tor them and the game was a big hit. Other es to appear on CD have been less impressive icludmg many recent ports such as Prince of Persia, but there have been a couple of exceptions.
Road Avenger, for instance, is unique in that it uses cartoon-style graphics in a Death Race 2000-style scenario, with masses of animation on disc running under a Dragon's Lair system of-joysbek movements.
While not the most interactive of games, and restricted to cartoon graphics by Mega CD's poor graphics, Road Avenger is a definite improvement over its predecessors and a game which at least takes advantage of the CD's mass storage capabilities.
Future releases show a much better line-up. With titles such as Sherlock Holmes, an arcade quality Golden Axe (remember the superb original?) And beat- 'em-ups such as Streets of Rage.
Whether these games will be of sufficient quality to match CD32’s eventual output is doubtful, but they vntl at least be on the streets and available.
CD-I CHALLENGE Qompact Disc Interactive (CD-I) was launched last year into a market which had already given CDTV a resounding kick into touch, and has so far failed to sell in volume.
However, with a cheaper player unit and the backing of big names like Sony and Philips, what looked at first ?*e another adventurous turkey could turn out to be a strong contender in the new CD marketplace.
With a user base of only about 25,000 in the UK, CD-I has a long way to go, but the software titles now being released promise much tor the machine's future, and plans by its backers to invest heavily in Full Motion Video titles could result in more enthusiastic public interest.
Initially released as a home entertainment system Big money much like CDTV, CD-I ts based around a custom 58000 chip called the 68070, running at 16MHz. But still chained to the 68000's 16-bit architecture.
Backers There are no real graphics co-processor chips such as the Amiga's Alice and Lisa chips, and memory is only 1 Mb as opposed to CD32's 2Mb.
Tech specs in the unit's favour are its support for Photo-CD. S-VHS output, and 256 colour screens from a 24-bit palette. These are. Of course, ail available on CD32 with the benefit of Ham8 for backdrops and static artwork, but their inclusion in the CD-I line-up means that there is less of a gap between this format as between CD32 and the lamentable Mega CD.
In a side-by-side comparison. CD32's 32-bit processor, custom architecture and planar conversion chip give it a clear lead, but customers rarely have the benefit of such direct tests.
Of much more importance in the race for your wallet is the way in which a product is sold and how good its software support is.
Ominously. Philips have a distinct edge in the first area with a marketing push planned for Christmas which will centre around a hefty TV advertising campaign and which will feature FMV titles to best advantage.
Ft goes without saying that the CD-I marketing budget will outweigh that which Commodore can offer for CD32.
Bu! Not everything will come down to mere selling power.
LEVEL FOOTING Software will be the key to success for both formats, and having seen the planned releases, it is likely that sales will be good for both Commodore and Philips.
With a new low price player and financial backing, CD-I could be CD3t*’s biggest threat Starting from a software base as poor as the dire rubbish which popped up on CDTV, CD-I will have to rely on new software to make its push, and will therefore start on a level footing with CD32.
CD-I software Philips CDIE10 Price; E399 Available: September RAM: Imti Graphic*: 256 from 16.4 million CPU: 1BV1H 16-titt 68070 FMV: Available October, price £150 Titles due for imminent release on CD-t include Seventh Guest, the graphically superb adventure game which has wowed the PC world on CD-ROM. And Voyeur, described in the blurb as “the first interactive political thriller".
Based in a mansion full of scheming two- faced politicians and their cohorts. Voyeur, as its title suggests, involves the gamester in peeking through doors and windows to capture on camcorder the wheelings, dealings, and plottings of the morally bankrupt cast.
By collecting enough information about the political conspiracy being hatched, the player can elect either to inform the police when he or she believes the evidence is irrefutable or use the recorded footage to warn another character about the back- stabbing looming in the near future.
Shot using live actors (Robert Culp is among them) and set against a 3D computer set using what the maker's describe as a revolutionary technique. Voyeur will provide a visual feast, How its interactivity and gameplay shape up remains to be seen, but from the initial screenshots, this is clearly the sort of title which will generate enthusiasm and sell a few CD-I players. Other titles include international Tennis Open, a far cry from the dross that was the original CD-I Golf game, and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, a more traditional PC-style graphical adventure.
Neither promises to forge into new gaming territory, but both are at least of a quality which should hold its own against comparable CD32 games.
Full Motion Video, to be added at a cost of £150 when the CD-I Mpeg decoder is release in Ociober. Seems not to promise much in the way of gaming support, and is far more likely to be used for the linear (non-interactive) Video CD format. Any title released on this format will, of course, _ run on an Mpeg-equipped CD32.
But the availability of music videos and feature films (Philips have a deal with Paramount to release movies on CD) in combination with games of the quality of Voyeur and Seventh Guest will make CD-I a tempting buy.
Even if £100 more expensive than CD32.
M GAMES What good is a 32-bit machine without the software to sopport it? Over the next four pages Simon Clays and Jonathan Maddoch take you on a journey through preview heaven.
Coming soon to a screen near you soon.
Microcosm Psygnosis If you wan! Fancy graphics then look no further than Microcosm. It was first planned for release on the CDTV and opened most people's eyes, but then the machine didn't fare too well and so ihe project was shelved.
The CD32 was then released and some clever person at Psygnosis decided lo restart work on Microcosm and it looks like be ng even better than before The plot isn’t too dismiliar to Fantastic Voyage and Inner Space. A high corporate boss decides to be injected into his rival, so that he can control both megacorpo- rabons.
He is mina- turised with a team ot warriors to go and seek out to try and manipulate his brain. Your task is to be placed mside a super fighter, mmaturised and injected into the boss' bloodstream where you can seek out and kill all the bad guys.
The graphics are just astoundmgly good and are an ray-traced with 3D light-sourcing being used to create some amazing effects There are over 500Mb of graphic and sound data, a multiple frame rate of up to 60 frames'seoond. A maximum Of 32,768 colours and an original soundtrack by Rick Wakeman.
Just to prove how good the graphics are, Psygnosis are actually using in-game screenshots as the artwork for the box. Whether or not the game will forsake playability for graphics we shall have to wait and see.
Zool Gremlin One of the biggest selling Amiga games is making its way to the CD32 and is destined to become a big hit.
The original was a massive arcade adventure with addictive game- play. Awesome graphics and fullscreen parallax scrolling.
One of the fastest platform- ers that you can buy, Zool is a Ninja of the Nth Dimension who can jump.
Punch, kick, shoot, spin, climb and do just about everything. The CD version won't be that much different from the recently released A120C version.
As well as the original six worlds, there is going to be a new world addted with brand net graphics especially for the CD32. In addition to * his there will asio be some spectacular 3D-rendered animation sequences and a complete CD soundtrack.
Zool 2 Still hasn't been confirmed for the CD32, but there is a 99 per cent chance that you'll see it for Commodore's brand new machine Rise of the Robots Mirage Billed as the ultimate combat game. Rise of the Robots wii arnve this Christmas Rise has been created using radical 3D modelling software producing high quality ray-traced graphic images that are more realistic, more animated and more controllable than ever before.
Each robot character is modelled element by element from the original blueprint designs and shaped to *ts exact dimensions Once a robot's body parts are modelled the whole figure is linked hierarchically, enabling the robot to animate realistically.
Some ot the more spectacular effects in Rise include the morphing of a liquid metal robot and the shattenng sequences when a robot is defeated There are spectacular animation sequences throughout the game which Will be as seamless as possible to give il more of the appearance and feel of a movie rather than a computer game.
The player controls a cyborg in battles against five types of enemy robot as well as a super-intelligent robot known as the Supervisor. Each robot is governed by its own artificial intelligence which wdl affect the style in which it fights Rise of the Robots is being developed by Mirage's in-house programming team.
Instinct Design. The team, which is headed up by ex-Bitmap Brother Sean Griffiths, was formed in 1992 With a bnef to develop high quality products that stretch the technical capabilities of the new CD machines.
Millennium's next release after the truly excellent Diggers will be the third instalment in the James Portd series Of games. Once again our fishy chum is on the trail of the evil Dr Maybe. Operation Starfi5b is going to surprise a lot ot people and wil especially please Robocod fans.
The graphics are bigger and better - it’s quite possibly the fastest platformer I have seen so far.
The CD32 version of fhe game will features some tremendous cartoony graphics and an excellent jazzy CD soundtrack to boot.
James Pond 2. Which was recently released on the A1200. Will also be transferred to the CD32 with a few tweaks in the graphics and sound departments.
• RE!
ORLD i i l if you were to name the best arcade racing game, then the name leaving your lips would be Lotus. The original Lotus and Gremlin deal was signed way back in June
1990.
The first game, Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge, shipped ater that year to huge critical acclaim across Europe, nduding the title of Arcade Game of the Year It went on w aeheieve classic status, clocking up sales in excess of
100. 000 units.
The sequels followed on in yearly intervals and intro- 3uced new Lotus cars and game features, including RECS, the revoulutionary course designer system. Both Wes met with similar success and the third instalment Magic Carpet is very similar to Creation m a number of ways. You are placed on a magic carpel flying over a texture-mapped 3D landscape. While flying you meel all sorts of monsters and dragons which you have to shoot.
The game is very in the style of Space Harner, but graphics-wise ts at least 100 times better. The technology used m Magic Carpet has also been used to create things like flight simulators, but Bullfrog decided against a product of this type and made a game that will be accessible to everyone.
Bullfrog Gremlin The Lotus Trilogy Magic Carpet went on to become one of Gremlin's top-selling games of
1992.
One of the best points of CD is the ability to hold so much more data than its disk counterpart. This enaWed Gremlin to place all three Lotus games together on one
CD. The games won't take advantage of the CD32's capabilities,
but the introduction of a lick of paint (256 colours?) And
maybe a CD-quality soundtrack might be a good idea for
Gremlin to implement. The Lotus Tnlogy should arnve on the
shop shelves in November the universe. In total there are 130
missions to dip your wing-tips in.
Inferno has some of the sharpest 3D graphics yet seen on a console, with extremely smooth presentation of the 3D images. Inferno also features a full CD-quality soundtrack recorded by Goth belfry-rockers Alien Sex Fiend.
Also contained in the package will be a graphic novel designed by top Judge Dredd artist Sean Phillips. Ocean believe this will help set the scene and also add extra Digital Image Design s tie-up with Ocean will see the release of Inferno on the CD32- For those of you who remember Epic, Inferno was originally billed as the sequel The problem with Epic was that it just didn't live up to its name. If ever the game-buying public were sucked into the vacuous black hole of the hype machine, it was by Epic.
However, Inferno has certainly not been dogged by the same problems as Epic was assumed to have suffered.
Ocean are adamant that Inferno has not been rushed or left incomplete.
Ninety years after Epic's setting, Inferno stars you as a top pilot battling over forces of good and evil. The evil forces in this case are a group of nasty aliens who are interested in your skills.
The action will take place over seven planets and three moons, but you have the freedom to explore the depths of Inferno Ocean depth and a stronger element of believability.
Overall Inferno looks set to create quite a stir with its cinematic feel, large slick detailed polygons and in-depth level of play.
Creation Bullfrog Creation is a major departure for Bullfrog. Steenng cleverly away from their collection of isometric 30 games such as Populous and Syndicate. Creation uses a first-person perspective with absolutely amazing graphics The game is set underwater and uses a fractal-generated aquatic landscape complete with texture-mapped 3D to create a realistic feel of depth. This mapping is all down to the CD32’s planar chip which means all the stuff that can be done on a PC can be just as easily done on Commodore's new machine.
The idea for the game came from Bullfrog supremo Peter Moiyneux when he went scuba diving. With ?
GAMES Oscar Bullfrog's games you seem to stand back from the world you're in. But with Creation you're actually part of the environment and get to swim around with the fish!
Flair Software Theme Park Bullfrog Theme Park is aimed at anyone who ever dreamed of owning or running their own amusement park. Cutesy, it may be. But it's also a business simulator. Theme Park returns to Bullfrog's old adage of the isometric 30 game.
The option to build the biggest rollercoaster in the world and charge people nothing to go it is possible, but within a few days you'll go bankrupt. As well as the roler- coaster. Theme Park offers the punters a Haunted House, waltzers. A space shuttle simulator and other Such eneter- tainrng rides. It's a very watchaWe game with kids smiling after they've been on the rides, or a small child sobbing becauses he's lost him mum. An original idea with some luscious 256-colour graphics and a comprehensive icon- based control system. Theme Park could well be massive.
Trolls was perhaps one of the most underrated games of last year and despite getting rave reviews from the press, it didn't sell tremendously wen Flair put their heads together to wonder why their ace little platformer hadn't sold by the bucketload and as they were about to start work on Trolls 2 they thought they'd better find out Apparently if was nothing lo do with the qualrty of the game, but because Trolls was perceived to be a girl’s game As 90 por cent of the games market were male. Flair thought they'd better ditch the Trolls idea.
The Flair team went back to drawing board and came back with Oscar The game starts at Oscar’s local multiplex cinema where by some strange fate Oscar is drawn into the different movies. Cartoon Superwortd, Wild West Capers. Game Show Bonanza. World War 3. The Horror Channel, Sci-Fi Encounter and. Ahem. Jurassic Pranks are the films in question.
As Oscar ventures between levels he must collect miniature versons of the "real' Oscars in order to progress. To fit the game on the A1200 was a difficult task with the panel, the background and the foreground in 32 colours and the sprite in 16 colours. This created horrendous memory obstacles, but for the CD32 this won't be an issue.
The CD32 version will feature general improvements which will affect sound and graphic with digitised sequences for the front end.
The general gameplay will be unchanged because Flair feel that it’s as good as it can be, Oscar could wef become a serious challenger to Sonic, Zooi and Mano Body Blows E Team 17 Vet another sequel in the offing for the CD machine.
Details of this one are even sketchier, but it is scheduled for re'ease in the early part of next year.
TFX The A1200 version is still in the inital design stages, but you can expect the CD32 version to be similar with detailed backdrops, fast and smooth animation and terrific CD sound effects.
Ocean This and Alien Breed 2 are definites for the CD32, but Team 17 are also hoping to get Project X and Superfrog TFX or Tactical Fighter experiment puts you in the hot seat of some of the world’s leading jet fighters You are set to play a top pilot with the UN rapid-response airforce.
It is set over eight theatres of war including Africa, Europe. South America. South East Asia and of course the Middle East.
Your judgement will not only sort Out aerial threats from hostile nations, but will also diffuse delicate political scenarios.
Involving over 200 multiple objective missions, you also have the enviable task of selecting trom jets such as the European Fighter aircraft, the F22 or the devastating F-117A Stealth fighter.
TFX utilises full Ordinance Survey maps and covers seven million kilometres of play area All ot these are literally covered with hills, roads, towns and installations al in beautiful 3D polygon splendour.
TFX is another product to come from the minds of DID (Digital Image Design), the team who brought you F-29 retabator. Judging from the standard of early demo sequences, TFX looks to be rather special to say the least. The 30 engine «s the same as used m Inferno and features a combination of polygons and texture mapping Apart from looking splendid visually, TFX retains a strong element of the true flight simulator, so there are no fancy gimmicks or flight patterns that the real McCoy cannot perform.
TFX is nearing completion and looks set send a sidewinder into the belly of all other flight sims, Soccer Kid Krisalis Reviewed in the last issue of Amiga Computing, the 94 per cent Gamer Gold-rated Soccer Kid is also making the transistion to Commodore's new console beater. In terms of gameplay there will be hardly any difference - it wd be virtually identical to the standard A500 600 versions It's not known as yet whether Krisalis will overhaul the graphics and give it a 256-colour lick of paint.
There will be definitely be a CD soundtrack and an extra country (Brazil) which was left out of the floppy release, to play around in. Another major feature for the CD32 is the five minutes of broadcast-quality animation at the beginning of the game.
A Japanese company has been working on the introduction animation and it will be unlike anything you've ever seen before.
Sleepwalker Ocean After the success of the original Sleepwalker for Come Relief 93 there followed a vastly improved A1200 version The somnambulist in question is Lee. Fortunately he has a canine carer in the shape of Ralph. He takes care of the snoozing youngster as he stumbles through dangerous situations.
A first rate combination of platform capers and tomfoolery. Sleepwalker is both playable and amusing.
The CD version will be to all intents and purposes the same as the A1200 which improved the Sound and graphics.
Pinball Fantasies GAMESm Elst Century Most Amiga owners will have found it a difficult task to avoid the computer press's response to Pinball Fantasies, Basically it received rave reviews with most folk confessing it was the most realistic pinball simulation ever to light up the tube on a monitor.
What you got for your money were four tables of fast scrolling, high speed flipper frolics and a true feeling that this was the closest a silicon machine could replicate a real machine, As they say that was then, but this is now because the CD32 version is about to bounce around your screen.
The main difference of course, will be graphical. Mos!
People thought that the original version looked sweet, but to see it resplendent with 256 colours is quite awesome.
The soundtrack has had a total re-working, A whole new set of tunes have been recorded, taking complete advantage of the CD qualities the console possesses.
The result is some literally ear shattering music, while the sound effects that come to you in four-channel stereo tilt Pinball Fantasies closer to the realms of reality.
Fans will also be pleased to hear that 21st Century's earlier effort. Pinball Dreams, is undergoing the same treatment. More exiting than this, though, is work is Currently underway on Pinball Illusions. This follow up, although a good way off completion, will include a multi-ball feature and a whole set of new tricks and tables, Liberation - Captive E Mindscape Following 1990’s classic award-winning Captive comes the sequel Liberation. The original was set on an off- world penal colony, with you battling it out against all manner of mechanised menace, Liberation brings us back down to Earth m
a tale of power, corruption and lies. Set in the 29th Century, you play Trill, a prisoner of conscience and an exile from Earth. This doesn't seem such a bad thing as the mighty BoCorp are bleeding the planet dry. Stopping at nothing in their lust for profit.
When the corporation droids malfunction they turn killer. Instead of de-adivatmg these droids, though, the company is blaming innocent people for the murders.
You control four of your own droids through their own windows on-screen, sending them on separate missions to exercise justice.
Liberation is huge to say the least and contains some
36. 000 City locations and just over 4.000 random missions. It's
not just an action adventure either, as contained in the play
will be a high number of challenging puzzles to solve, The
significant aspect as far as the CD32 is concerned is the
pioneering Vectomap system Mindscape have developed. It uses
high resolution images in combination with fast moving
vectors Liberation also contains some outstanding superbfy

Alien Breed E Team 17 The much-awaited sequel to Ai»en Breed will be Team 17's first release for the CD32. Released early next year it will be well worth the wait. Details are still sketchy, but it will feature enhanced graphics and an impressive CD soundtrack.
Syndicate Bullfrog Following the release of the CD32. Bullfrog decided to shelve their A1200 version and concentrate on a version for the supenor machine The main reason for this was that the programmers found that the extra graphics and colours they'd hoped to implement on the floppy-driven machine slowed the play down to levels beyond belief However, the CD32 with its hi-tech bytes-to-bitplanes converter speeds everything up to the required level. This has enabled them to add the kind of features desired without losing any pace.
In the original version you were in charge of a group of psychotic cyborg agents, who armed to the silicon teeth 4
* r fill 1 r m _ wrecked havoc on rival corporations with the
view of world domination the ultimate goal. The CD version
should include such delights that the chart topping original
could never aspire to. For example, you will be able to rotate
the 3D perspective to see behind buildings and other objects.
Plus any building your agents enter will now be able to be viewed as a cut-out to add an extra dimension to play.
Other things which are set for release as data disks for the original version are to be included on the 32 version.
These will be things such as a new range of weapons plus the ability to disguise your agents as civilians.
With enhanced graphics using the planar chip which is built into the CD32, Syndicate looks like being the kind of product to take Commodore's new baby by storm for Chnstmas.

WAR IN THE GULF CHEAT MODE • LATEST NEWS FROM THE WORLD OF AMIGA GAMES t ON THE DRAWING BOARD: CYBERSPACE, DISPOSABLE HERO, PREMIER MANAGER 2 AND SECOND SAMURAI m Empire are out and about on the arcode front with Magic Boy. It features a massive 96 levels split between 64 main and 32 hidden levels of superb colourful arcode action that make all other gomes look block and white by comparison.
You play the port of Hewlett, a young naive and hopelessly occident-prone apprentice wizard who, while his master is away, has inadvertently released a large number of monsters.
You must guide Hewlett in search of the monsters ond return them to their cages before the master wizard returns. This is not quite os easy as it sounds because some of the monsters will attempt to work their awn mogic ond use cunningly intelligent strategies to dodge Hewlett ond escape being caught.
Empire's plotformer will feature four-track sampled music and sound effects. There are four different graphic styles which are wonderfully presented on a parallax scrolling background.
Mogic Boy wos created by the designers of the award-winning Pipe Dream ond should arrive before the end of the yeor.
Are you ready to fly?
Digital Integration have just announced the release of on album'length CD and cassette featuring music from ond inspired by to Tornado flight experience. The music was written and produced by Dominic King, David Punshon ond Richard Wells David Punshon wos commissioned by Digital Integration to provide ihe music for the gome, and Dominic King is o prolific songwriter who has written music for the likes of Roger Doltry (ahem) and Corfy Simon (oh dear) to name just two, and sound tracks for films such os Greose 2 (ho ho) Hits included on the album are Storm by Hollywood Nights, We Con Fly By,
err Fly and Are You Reody to Fly by RozaHa.
The CD will cost you £10,99 while the cassette is slightly cheaper at £8.99. Eira Sidron, the programming genius behind the hugely successful Universal Military Simulator (UMS) and UMS 2 has, after nearly four years of development, just announced the launch of his latest epic, Jock the Ripper, Jack the Ripper is a heavyweight murder mystery game which simulates the events that took place in the Whitechapel and Spitalfield boroughs of London in 1888.
Like all Sidran games, Jock the Ripper is heoped with accurate information based on years of research. Every known fact, person, object and detail that have been uncovered in the 105 years since the commission of these heinous crimes have been induded in the gome.
Skilled pen and ink artists have been commissioned to draw reconstructions of the infomous locations ond to create portraits of the unfortunate residents that lived there.
Whenever possible the artists have worked from actual photographs, maps, blueprints ond contemporary descriptions.
Because the Whitechapel Murders were never solved, a number of important clues have been planted in the game so that a conclusion can now be reached. This also means that every time you run the program you may well discover o different solution to the kilings.
Jack the Ripper is full of hard evidence and solid dues, there ore no contrived puzzles or riddles. You’ll need all your logic and skills of detection to pick up on vital clues when searching the different locations, interrogating suspects ond reoding up on the latest reports in the doily newspaper.
The game utilises the easy to use Graphical User Interface (GUI) which comprises movable windows, scroll bars, drop down menus and a point and click cursor controlled by a mouse.
Jack the Ripper ond will be available later this year and it will be distributed in Europe through Mirage Technologies Ud.

The house of 'paign Ccmpgign wo* o highly successful, incredibly detailed simulation of land-based worfore in World War
I. Well it's bock! The wittily titled Campaign 2 is bigger,
better and quite simply the military simulation of the year.
Empire have updated the system to include all the post war vehicles with over 100 new shapes from Abrams to T72s tanks. All of the modern weapon systems such os guided missile, rockets, homing missiles, laser range-finders, gun stabilisers and night sights have been added.
Animated infantry con be deployed from personnel carriers into the bottlefieW. Not only con you drive all the vehicles in an improved 3D environment, but you con fly helicopters loo!!
Just as in Compoign 1939-1945, several historically occurate maps are included in the package, covering many real conflicts from the last 50 years.
The real strength of Campaign 2 is in its strategy side. After long consultations with military strategists, it's emerged as the most comprehensive simulation, not just of warfare, but of the whole operation of running an army os viewed from oil levels.
The second bout of campaigning will begin in October.

It's rally time again Europress Software is about to launch the lotest generation of virtual reality car racing games. Five years ago Europress Software, then under the moniker of Mandarin, made history with Lombard RAC Rally, the first roller coaster-type driving game. It was a massive seller at full price and a chart topper when it wos later releosed on Ocean's Hit Squad budget label, Now Europress Software hove once more teamed up wilh the RAC to create a faithful representation of this year's four-doy rally which starts on the November 21.
It features digitised video graphics of the route, taking in real racetracks, bleak hills, moor land and snowy Welsh forests. Gamers can test their rally skills while seated behind the wheel of a fully modified Ford Escort Cosworth, Toyota Celka and Subaru Imprezza omong others.
Project Manager Richard Vanner travelled around the country filming various special stages olong the route. The footage has resulted in different rood textures like gravel, tarmac and mud being occurotely reproduced, together wiRi roodside features like trees, log, actual rally rood signs, marshalls and of course spectators. The effect of these digitised graphics is startling ond redly has to be seen to be believed.
Rolfy will be launched in November far the Amiga. The gome will be 1Mb and compatible with dl AMIGAs, but only A1200 and A4000 owners will be* able to take odvantoge of the special 256- colour mode.

C, but we're reliably informed that he wiH live to another simubtor soon - after all, he is only a computer-generated chorgcter ond you con'l hurt them for very long.
Anyway. Spunky s endeavours beautifully illustrate the whole concept of Dogfight, which is to allow you to engoge in oerial combot in a rongo of jets ond planes which spon an era of 80 years.
The firs! Thing to be said is that Dogfight morks
o departure for MicroProse. For the first time they’ve swung away
from the oCCufOCy ongle which they’ve mode their benchmark, and
developed a more ihnlls-ond-spills fun simulator INTO ACTION
In Dogfight you ore presented with three mam options which
decide what type of flight of fancy you are going to take port
in The first choke for you to deliberate over is whether to
engoge in Dud Mode. This is possibly the quickest way to get
airborne and taste air combot In Dud Mode you ore provided wifi
a choice of six historical eras ond two typical opposing craft
from that time You can for example, choose to be - like Spunky
- ond take on the Hun in your SopworthCamd Alternatively,
career forward in time and re- enoct the Folklond Wor or the
Syrian conflict in more modern jets like the Harrier or the
F-16.
The other smart thing about Duel Mode is that you can start your flight at varying mid air tactical positions, so it serves as fine practice for aH the rookies The next option for your perusal is the Who!
If? Mode. This option allows you to engage in combat to the deoth in aircraft from different times. This means you con pit your wits against a MiG-21 from the 50s in a World War II Spitfire.
In ail there ore 12 different planes for you to experiment with ond you're not just limited to a one-on-one confrontation. Once you start to get to grips with controlling the plones and gain confidence, you can take on up to five enemy craft ot the some time.
The other option for you to scratch Take a quantum leap back in time and become that butch chappie the Red Baron your chin over is where on earth you ore going to carry out vour oerial frocos You Cort choose from seven different worldwide hot-spots including Vietnam, Korea and of course the hottest spottiest of them all, the Middle East As if that wasn't enough, there's yet another option which is oduolfy the very core of Dogfight The Mission option allows you to enod full-blown scenarios from all of the conflicts previously described In this option you also have the choice of deciding what
type of mission to embark upon Perhaps you'd like lo patrol oround the Dover coast defending our shores from the might of the German Luftwaffe? Conversely you may prefer the Wood and thunder of o seorch and destroy raid deep in the Korean jungle.
GREAT RANGE Overall it's very hard not lo be impressed with Dogfight. It's absolutely huge m proportions and initially there'll be plenty to keep you occupied With the number of missions to choose from ond the variety of scenarios to enjoy, I'm not sure whether you'll ever need another flying game Graphically Dogfight is good The plones have quite 0 lot of detail about them ond even feature such luxuries os wing markings The only sacrifice I noticed was in the ground detail, but on the whole this does not affect Dogfight's playability.
On the whole the plones move occurately as you'd expect them to. As usual with MicroProse, the horizontal screen updates are quick ond Tms is the new roclt-a-doodle-cockpit. This model comes with air-bag, and lots of useless Ford dials like Turbo-boost, stereo that jams your tape in forever and a bolder that automatically turns your tape into The best of Queen after a week smooth ond give on impression of flight.
There ore also some nice little extra touches that moke Dogfight that little bit sweeter to ploy For one you get more enough external angles and zoom facilities to muck about with. On Dogfight however, you con also exercise this whim on your parachuting pilot os he Boots to the ground.
Another nice touch is when you By of the sun you suffer sun blindness ond the screen goes white os you lose vision. Add the customary configuration screen, the normal phone book size manuol and a modem link up for heed to heods, ond you've quite a bl of simubtor.
Dogfight may not find too many friends within the purist flight simulator club because of 0 few short-cuts MicroProse have token to make it more playable.
For example, the majority of jets hove different heod-up displays; for ease of use these have been standardised However, if you're not too bothered about slight artistic licence and wont to enjoy a v&y fine flight simulator that's full to the brim with excitement and action, then DogfighYs definitely the one for you Simon days VISION 00000000 AUDIO 00000 DIFFICULTY 000000© LASTABILITY 00000000 Dogfight no frolicking flight of fancy for oces oil over the world.

* Thomas The Tank Engine Bj basically all there is to know obout
Thomas 2 because it is on incredibly basic gome. That's a good
point though because it's easy to play and a whole fot of fun
to boo*. I'm not exactly o tot, but I really and truly enjoyed
playing Alternative's troin roce-em-up The graphics are
impressive with brilliant reproductions of Thomas and all his
chums.
Soundwise there is an accurate rendition of the theme music from the TV show and plenty of sound effects throughout.
Thomas 2 sounds ond looks terrific. It's highly playable and is great fun. It's very hard to knack Alternative's latest, but Fm m a bit of a quandary.
I could give it onythmg between 70 ond 90 per cent If you re oged between three ond eight then you re going to love it, but if you're older you won t fmd much to keep you going because it is so base, although the two-player mode is strangely oddictive if you've got on insane friend to ploy it with.
Technically it's brilliant, but it isn't going to appeal to everyone As it is specifically aimed at the younger morkel I'm going to give it 90 per cent. Remember it is only £9.99 ond you do get great value for your money JONATHAN MADDOCK Chuffing good race 'em up fun arrives in your locol station from the careful hand of Alternative Software. Ringo Starr net included!
Gverhegrd the commotion ond decided to put a stop to it at once. He shouted to the argumentative , 'We'll soon see who is the fastest I wil I o racing competition and keep times with my pocket watch, then we'll know who is the best.’ The two feisty trains began rewing their engines in reodmess for the roce Thu dear reoder is where you come in; the outcome of the roce is dl down to your skills as a rampant gomes player. There is o choice of up to seven engines (Thomos, Percy, Gordon, Bill, Toby, James and Ben) and o bus [Bertie).
The option of racing ogo,nSt the compvter or 0 friend is entirely up to you. But it helps a lot if you Excuse me if I boast ond be self-indulgent for a couple of paragraphs, but there are number of loves in my life and one of those which applies to this review is children's television If I could sit at home all day and watch kid's TV I would become the happiest man on Earth.
Postman Pal, Bertha Fireman Sam, Dongermouse, Podlond Bill, Sesame Street, Rugrots, Scooby Doo, The Flintstones... just o selection of my favourite programmes Thomas the Tonk Engine is a whole different xettle of fish, if it was on and I wosn't doing anything then I d watch it, but within a couple of minutes I'll skirl channel hopping and trying to find something more substantial Just my luck this month then to get o game about the only children's favourite that I don't particularly like. For starters, It had Ringo Starr as the narrator, which was a major mistake, ond for some bizarre
reason it always seemed lo be aimed at upper class kid’ dies. Oh well, such is life!
Before, you carry on reoding I must point out rfxrt this particular product is part of Alternative Software's Children's Range ond is aimed ot kids aged between 3 and 8. More mature readers con now turn the poge, but interested parents ond those who still behave like children should reod on.
The story behind the game is a tale of unbridled mocho boasting and bragging. The issue oil started when Thomas entered into the station and feeling fairly happy ond confident uttered the immortal words: 'I'm a really useful engine!'.
That constitutes bragging where I come from mm SOB SMI Hill hove o couple of chums to ploy ogoinsf. You ore presented with o horizontally split screen which scrolls from left to right The first one post the finishing line wins. Single? Well, not quite that simple becouse all the roil signals must be obeyed, otherwise the Fot Controller will moke you wait while he tells you off if you crash into obstructions and other engines you will waste a few seconds of precious time You'D also lose time if you travel down dead ends and you'll also sacrifice some wafer which slowly runs out as you
progress through the race.
If you run out of water you will lose the roce, so filling up is one of your main priorities. There are several water pumps where you con stop to fiH up.
Your woter gauge will show you how much you have and warns you when you ore getting low by Boshing. In eoch race, there is o bonus stage in die form of a short-cut that will only let one player through.
The first to reach the flashing lights at the entrance to ihe bonus stage will be allowed to enter The bonus stage is completed by collecting the five letters that spell the word 'Bonus'.

Everybody parades around thinking that onother one won't hurt, when really we've almost reached complete saturation point, Let's meander down the metaphorical track of the tired Formula 1 licence for o moment. Look how many titles are currently racing for contention for the pole position of number one motor rocing experience.
Vroom, F-l Grand Prix and Super Monoco GP are just three of the relative oldies to grace the grid. Agreed they're to all intents and purposes classics, but weren't they enough to put the rival fodions off?
H seems not, because just recently o pock of new titles hove weaved their turbo-charged selves onto your shelves. Mr whinging Brummy himself, Nigel Monsell, took time out from mok- became filled with sunshine. Could the compo ny that wowed us with the likes of Project X, Superfrog, Alien Breed ond most recently Body Blows do it ogoin?
Well what with the recession ond all the, company refused to buy me a sexy Marlboro racing suit, so reluctantly I stretched into my undersized Admiral tracky bottoms, slipped on my oven gloves, strapped up my colander and set out to rood-lest Team 17's new title.
First query is why the devil is it called F17 and not FI like oil the others? Well, it's apparently because FUJI ond the FIA hove decided to get mordy about people using words like FI or Grand Prix. Now that we've cracked open that ing even more loot to lend his name to a Formula 1 title.
Then there's Domork's FI; this has the official backing of the F.I.A. which should give it some extra revs.
With the big names ond licences being bonded around you wouldn't think there'd be much space on the frock for another competitor.
ASTONISHMENT So when another Formula 1-style title screeched its way into the office, it was greeted with both astonishment ond a certain amount of contempt.
However, when I noticed the Team 17 logo emblazoned on the bottom of the box my heart cor moves ot o terrific role. Everything graphical from backdrops to your cor is very well drown and animated.
When the finish line has been finally crossed, it hos to be soid that Team 17 hove come up with a winner. Everything obout this gome is just brilliant - it looks good, sounds good and plays as wel os ony arcode rocer I've yet seen.

I meg little piston rod, let's find out about the nuts and both of Challenge. Remarkably enough, 17 puts you in control of one of four racing cars over aU of the world's toughest circuits. The ultimate aim, like oil racers, is to become the world champ.
That, to oil intents ond purposes, is that; most racers fellow the some recipe, because that's what the likes of our Damon do for a living. So rhere are no real surprises on that front.
However, ond I am jumping the green light here a little, but things need saying now, before you condemn FI7 as "just another racer". For one it's brilliant, and secondly it only costs the best port of £13!
When most products float oround the £25 to £40 mark, you are guaranteed o quality product Igr just a fraction of the cost. In terms of its tea- Things that make you go Brrmmm tures, FI7 holds its own against its more costly competitors from the same stable. Choke of cor, varying levels of ability from rookie through to pro and interchangeable control systems are just the press of a throttle away.
CHAMPIONSHIP Once you're out there in the cockpit there ore more decisions to make. You can opt for prochce laps or play orcade-style three-lap races whkh challenge you to finish in the top six to qualify for the next circuit. Alternatively you can take part in qualifying to determine your ploce on the grid in the full-blown championship.
There's also wet weather to contend with, ond damage inflicted on your cor by driver error or other mean mochines affects your performance.
A nice touch here is that when your little brum-brum takes dents to the point-work you can pit in. The longer you stay in the pit, the better the repair job you get.
All these things are really nice features but above all the outstanding quality of FI7 is playability. Pure, unadulterated, arcode playability.

Even though Airbus will toke a lot of mastering and patience it con get rather tedious on long houl flights. But it does succeed in providing gomers with a truly realistic simulation So if you've had your beody eye on the look out for an occurale sim, Tholion's A320 is definitely the one for you.

Yes Size 1 meg The very mention of A320 Airbus sends o shiver down the spme and the mind spi railing back to the days of the packoge holiday.
Arriving at the airport some three days before r hvo-in-the-morning, cheop-rote flight is due takeoff, you queue with a herd of other revellers oil mooing with excitement over the prosped of sun and fun on the Costa.
Aft* waiting same three hours in o fly-infested baggage check-in behind the enormous Mrs Monkey, her three jammyfoced sprogs, her sombrero and her 13 suitcases which ore full to the brim of mosquito repellent and diarrhoea cures, you finally hand your bogs in.
Once you've collected your tickets, the caring ground-crew cattle prod you towards the departure lounge where you set up camp for the remainder of the lime. Living on o diet of insipid coffee and stole sandwiches, you count the hours until your flight is called As Ine time counts down on air of expectancy fills the room, With only 30 minutes till boording on announcement booms over the tannoy telling yoo that due to Spanish oir traffic control the flight nas been delayed a further two months.
Finally however, it's time to board. After the mod rush, 200 sweaty carcosses ore settled in their scots anticipating their stole food, copious amounb of loger and o good opportunity to goose and verbally abuse the hostesses Fortunately Airbus has very little lo do with the passengers on domestic flights Instead it concerns itself with the serious business of safely commuting people from airport to airport in the United States at the helm of a state-of-the-art modem airliner.
Unlike many flight sims (especially military ones) designers Tholion have concentrated on making A320 os realistic as possible. In fact, on opening the box one finds a host of technical manuals and a complete set of charts.
On first glance this may seem daunting to many, so a training mode has been implemented which gives you the opportunity to select your ovm weather and destinations.
In full flight mode the met office supply weather ond cloud ceiling, then it's up to you to decide the amount of fuel ond the number of passengers you wish to carry These are not irrelevant questions either, because they offed the way your Airbus will hondle.
Once this has been decided ifs into the cockpit and time for toke off To get off the ground you must follow the correct procedure, as everything about A320 is laid out like the real thing and must be implemented at the rigKl time.
Once in the air, unless if1 s a very short across town flight you must use your trusty charts ond beacon system - this could toke some time.
The beacons help you to navigate by sending out a signal which leis you determine how far you are from your next point of referonce This process is repeated until if’s time for landing. This time you must use more hi-tech wizardry, in the shape of the ILS - Instrument landing System.
This works on the a similar basis to the beacons, except it tells you whether you ore loo low, too high or left or right of the runway.
When you have completed your flight (tangled wreckoge or intact) the computer works out o performance rating. This is based on such things as H It's bouncy! It's boingy! It's, err sproingy?

Since the down of time man has pondered over his future- From
the moment lie apocalypse was predicted in the Bible, so
mankind has striven to achieve Ais nation.
Writers too hove very often have been pre-occupied with this vision of Armageddon Normally the trend lies with the current world economy and balance of power We only have to examine the totalitarian worlds of Huxley and Owell (ram the '40s to see a futuristic mirror image of communism and fascism.
During the 'never hod it so good' ’50s ond promiscuous ’60s the science-fiction future pointed optimistic pictures Writers like Asimov and Arthur C Clarke gave us visions of a golden age of Aquarius where people existed at one with their artificial environment, gazing up ot gloss domed skies However, i° '984 Neuromancer, written by William Gibson, took the top off the proverbd domed lid of the golden future. Writers like Philip K Dick with Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and Wolter Williams with Hardwired also painted a similar picture. Films followed with directors like Ridley Scott
turning words into pictures in the much celebrated fifaderunner Other films with the same underlying ideas such os Mod Max and Tron become popular In doing so a new term was bom: Cyberpunk.
ON THE You may be thinking life in the '90s is frantic. Empire are about to put that all into perspective with Cyberspace.
Simon Clays interfaces with his combat software and enters the ethereal world of the cyberzone network So popular was the book that soon on RPG gome was launched, Due to the success of the dice-oriented table-top. Empire ore about to launch Cyberspace But, ta those of us uninitiates, what is Cyberpunk? In this shope of things to come the glass domes remain but gone ore die grey lifestyles of Airttnp 1 and along comes a vibrant pulsating existence it, those without wont to get it.
The setting for Cyberspace is cruel The year is 2090, governments are in a state of chootic collapse, drug abuse is rife and the mossive corporations repress Mon has developed Cyber system which has allowed him to enhonce a wide range of artificial implants. Cyberspace however, is just in its infancy Cyberspoce is a realm where a man's consciousness can travel and interact with others.
But large portions of the Cybernet remain unexplored and is largely regarded as man's only uncharted Earthly frontier.
The first thing to say about »he computer conversion is that it s gang to be absolutely massive in size. H's set in a beleoguered San Francisco, under the cosh of repression discussed previously Ploy will be set in two different environments.
The first you will exist in is the city Everything will be viewed in 3D and will combine a combination of vectors and bitmapped images Exploring the world of Son Fran will be mode as realistic as possible, For example, graphko*- the people you interact widi will consist of a com ptex amount of connected polygons aid spheres with things like heads being bitmapped. Having KEY ELEMENTS Their world oozes activity from the cellars to the high rises. Paradoxically, because cities are inhabited by SO many people, the value of human life is cheop Cyberpunk existence is a style defined by two key
elements The first is man's overwhelmii ing day to day interaction with technology i os wash- In their world, computers ore as common ing machines ond they don't break down oil the time when you get your pants jammed m them. Because of this, sometimes the dividing line between man and mochine is somewhat hazy For example, if your brain were put inside a mechanical body, would you still be human?
Conversely, is an artificially intelligenl computer alive?
The second element found in the Cyberpunk worlds is that of struggle Basically Cyberspoce is divided into two groups - the haves ond the have As per usual, those with power wish to keep nofs The Gamer guide to pub culture in Cyberspace j • _ seen some early demos of Cyberspoce, it hos to be soid that a high degree of realism has been achieved.
This will be further enhanced by the fact that every person m the world of Cyberspoce hos his or nee own identity. This will be mainly decided by their social class ond everyone is assigned a letter to describe their order in society.
For example, N-dass citizens are unemployed ond are forced to exist in large, run-down apartment blocks.
There will also be inter-relationships between the occupants of the city. However, for a relationship to be active the assumption will be made that the porticiponts co-habit. Also featured will be dependants like children ond senior citizens Control of play wii be via o heod-up display which overlays the view screen, involving four main icons which will be of primary concern to tbe player.
The first icon control will be an information gathering control Clicking your mouse on objects while in this mode will give the player information on the stisjed in question.
Cyberspace zone, where people of the future interact using their minds, The cyberzone is an ethereal realm of electronic espionage in which net- heods - people who use the zone frequently - do battle This zone will be displayed in line graphics to provide a sufficiently different environment to ibecity.
While you will be able basically to roam where you want to, both in the city and the Cybernet, Cyberspace definitely will havo a plot you must roughly follow. At the moment Empire are being very cogey about the overall plot and sub-missions but it's fair to say that it should be fairly involved with a lot of locations to explore.
There will also be inventory icons where players can pick up ond drop items, ond use the items picked up.
The other place to be featured will be the DOG EAT DOG From what has been shown in a demo version, Cyberspoce has an extremely cinematic feel to it There's o great deal of realism ond interacting with ihe people of San Fran is very realistic Whether you be breaking lifelike into someone’s apartment or just having a drink in a bar, Cyberspoce will moke the characters respond in a very life-like manner.
Overall Cyberspace looks os though it's going to be very bia with science-fiction lovers ond role playing freaks olike. So, if adventuring in 0 dog eat dog world of technology mixed with espionage ond murder is your bog and you've always wonted to emulate Harrison Ford, wotch out for Cyberspoce coming to o software emporium near you soon.
Hod superb groph ics and sound plus uncanny amount of tremendous playability to boot.
Team 17's top seller was best described as on old classic, boosted and improved by 90s technology So anyone produc ing a shoot-'em-up now is going to have problems. For starters, however good the product popularity On first glance it looks very similar in style to R-Type, Armalyte, X-Out and other such games of that ilk Now, m on abrupt kind ol interruption sort of woy, o story At the beginning of the 29th Century, the Free Worlds were attacked by unknown forces. This wor, commonly know os The Blaze, ended in 2874 Almost hall the Free Worlds' populations were killed ond technology sank to
a level barely obove that of Earth todoy Communication between individual star systems was near to impassible In the year 2867, o smoU gro of men and women were selected for a highly specialised task force called (ond you can gasp at (his bit) D-Hero.
D-Hero was believed to be the only meons of regaining lost technology and freedom They succeeded in building a prototype spaceship capable of penetrating the alien strongholds.
Thanks to the Von Vonnegut method (opening spoce-hme interrupts at desired places, err a enlfy) it is possible to tune up the ship on its through enemy territory and have it warped to foctory where enhancements can be mode. Yes, I know it sounds clever, but it means that the game's creators don't have to explain why there are a number of shops selling goods to the "enemy' At this point there is no ending to my story because os per usual it's up to you to get in there in your spoceship and go and kick some alien butt to complete the tale For what reason I don't know
- perhaps the aliens have threatened to make the humans watch
endless repeats of Bobby Davro’s Rock with Laughter '(is a
foie worse than death) What it undoubted leods up to, though,
is a damn good excuse for some classic shoot-em-up oction.
You start your mission with three spaceships default weaponry and a full damoge bar You sustain domoge by colliding with aliens and their bu-5 lets and the actual degree of damoge depends on which alien you collide with Nappies, razors and now heroes.
Just what is going on? Jonathan Maddock shoots his way into Gremlin's latest blaster... Crashing into alien structures will kill you instantly, which I suppose is fairly obvious. Did you really expect to get awav with having a barney with o 100-ton piece of solid metal? When your damoge bar reaches zero, you will start to scream and shout in absolute panic and then die Your ship con be upqraded bv picking up blueprints which contain technical information on how to build godgets I'm not talking about toast rocks ond egg timers, though I'm talking about big, bountiful, beautiful beefy,
bouncy, hocking, maiming ond killing weapons, Weapons to make your eyes water, oh yes indeed.
Whenever you pick o blueprint up it is instantly transmitted bock to your foctory ond the piece of machinery it depicts will be constructed. As I said before, it's what shoot-'em up fans will call o shop where you buy stuff to enhance voyr ship Although it is going to oe published by Gremlin, D-Hero has been developed by Ixitch company Euphoria The company wos created in January of this year by Laurens van der Donk ond Mgrio Vgn Zeist Before Euphoria they formed part of o development team called Boys Without Broins, who were responsible for Howkeye and Flimbo's Guest I've played an olmost

The graph ics ore os good os Project X and the sound is jvsi brilliant with an array of high quality techno ombient tunes It’s been a very Iona time since gamers hove hod a good game of this type, but I predict thot the wait is now over.

sell players in Europe has now been implemented.
WEATHER CONDITIONS Another nice touch is the inclusion ol weather conditions which affect ploy ond sometimes lead to postponed games. There's also a comprehensive banking system with changeable interest rotes I bet that'II have accountants out there drooling.. Premier Manager wasn't really pocked with loads of sumptuous graphics mainly because it Indeed Desmond. The boy Gremlin, ever since ha football career took off in November of last yeor. Has done well.. clearly. Released to high critical ocdaim from the finicky computer press s *ve you me, we are finicky). Premier Monoger 'rsformed the

Gremlin hove now token ihe original gome, added o whole host of extra features and slopped : massive two at the end of the title to bring you

STRUGGLING As before, you begin your career ot a strv gl ng Conference League club. Using your I excellent managerial skills, you have to turn around your team's performance and moke the dub into a real success story ond then you'll hope-
- Jly be able to move to one of the country's top teams.
Should you be successful the very next move could be into Europe v*bere you'll have the opportunity to become the monoger of one of the world's »ery best football dubs The sequel keeps the same 'no-nonsense' style of gameplay and is still one of the easiest football manogement sims to control ond play If s more rawinqboarji (hon |ust picking rise right squod on rise day - npw you'll have everything to con (end wiriv From ensuring good crowd control and ticket prices to organising wages and contracts, every aspect of the daily running of the club is entirely down to you.

[nSl'Mk* ] Oh, he's football crazy, he's football mad, he's football crazeeee and, err I've forgotten what comes next, but our resident schizophrenic Jonathan Maddock turns into Jimmy Hill and inspects Gremlin's latest... PREMIER nager PM2 has now got immediate socking for poor performances. Gulp!
So, there you have it. I can tdl by the atmosphere that PM2 is going to be absolutely mossive, in fad maybe bigger than its original counterpart.
On the very afternoon I'm writing this, news has just leaked through that Peter Reid has been sacked by Manchester City ond barely a paragraph ago I was talking about sackings. Gasp! Wos it a coincidence, or hove I aol some incredibly dangerous psychic powers from the devil like ritat Damian kid out of the film Omen? Err, well no it was probably o coincidence octually.
Didn’t rseed them, but in the sequel there will be full grophicol ground improvements and also o few more Static screens.
For those who weren't very good ot the original (like myself) then you'd better wotch out because 3 I. f 000056 ¦ ¦¦nrrrr n, f. 00 ¦ OOOOOO C r oooooo c oo [rrrrrrr| Wl ¥ X X xx niirinKn D ?
Jonathan Maddock takes a quick trip to the land of the rising sun to inspect Psygnosis' latest and greatest platformer affects the end of gome sequence. The more points collected the more you'll see of ta end of gome sequence Interaction with the backgrounds ond the char octers in ta gome has been increased. The player will be able to move carry rocks ta cover eruphna volconoes ond geysers, or jump on the bock of some opponents ta jump even higher.
UNARMED The Somurai will again have a wide range of armed and unarmed moves and ta emphasis wil remain on easy use of these moves Our hero wl also be able to corry more than one weapon at once.
Those of you who were familiar with ta firtf game will remember ta amazing range of incredible sound effects. These hove been improved for the sequel and the in-game music will be even better.
This time a volume control has been added for the background music, so that you can turn it down wilhout affecting the volume ©f ta sound effects.
Second Somurai is going to be absolutely massive, It's bigger and better than the original and I | know that your ore going to foil in love with it.
Me? Fm already smitten and con't woit to get my grubby bonds on ta finished version.
Ment where players can help each other to defeat big opponents, but also tanks ta human nature it generates o bottle where one player will try ta outplay ta otar.
There is also an option in this mode where ta players can choose to be either friends of foes. If 'friendly' is chosen they connot hurt each otar, but if you choose *foe* then you can woge war ogainst your opponent This could leod to ta problem of trying to beat each otar up ratar ihon completing ta game, so insteod of octually killing youi opponent you just stun him for a few seconds This means you can pinch all the bonuses or collect the points for destroying an end of level boss.
Throughout the game there are experience points 0 collect encouraging players to concentrate on gathering treasure ond not just searching for new levels. Thus ta players mease their powers by gaming experience and by gaining occess to hidden rooms and bonuses.
How much experience points ore collected also In my book tare are several types o( platform games. Cutesy, fluffy and happy ones like Zod, Putty, Superfrog ond Rainbow Islands hove sold tremendously well ond ore probably ta most popular available for ta Amiga today Rivalling this cutesy platform break out is the hard nased, rough and tough platformer This type normally has a big, muscle-bound hunk of a hero running around trying to ovenge whatever he feeb like avenging that day I personally prefer ta latter category of plot former, Games like Myth, Another World, ftoshbock, Assassin and
Switchblode 2 would definitely come with me if I were ever stuck on a desert island If I hod k only choose one, it’d be an extremely tough decision, but I know First Somurai would be up there in contention with the others mentioned previously.
It was published in January 1992 by the now sodly departed Image Works label and wos perhaps one of ta most underrated gomes of oil time An out-and-out platform romp in the Land of ta Rising Sun which featured a brave Samurai Warrior in a desperote bid to destroy a Demon King who hod wasted his home village, it was a stamping PLAYABILITY First Samuroi boosted some of ta finest graphics, sound ond playability to hove adorned on Amiga, and at that time it wos the best platformer you could buy The gome has now been lost in the mists of computer game heaven and software buyers have turned
their attentions to something new, some- Iting more attractive, something with floshing lights and sound No fear though, because Psygnosis have signed up ta sequel the aptly named Second Somurai ond like its predecessor it could well become one of ta software greats Second Samurai offers much more lhan its original counterpart, There are a variety of styles in the game; platform, hock and slosh, exploring, puzzle solving, shoot-'em-up ond fighting. Basically there's o bit of everything in tare to please everybody.
Another worthy feature is the inclusion of o two- player mode. This system allows both players to be on-screen simultaneously and will have separate scores and bonus points.

The number next to the LOSSES column on the file will now be l, and iiis shows that you ore in cheat mode.
Now type your name in and you con get into the bottle area to attack; you are now able to enter the game as normal. When you reach the map screen where you choose which battle area to attock, you are now oble to get to any of the squares on the mop.
Getting into cheat mode Basically, if you hold down your right mouse button while selecting which squaro to go to, you can reach any sauore on the first island.
In cheat mode, there are two major facilities available. If you press Left AMIGA-W during o see- norio, you will automatically win. Pleose note thot you will get the wrong debriefing text.
You con then continue ond progress through the gome. In this way, you can gradually see all of the battle areas in the game if you wish If you go onto the map screen during a game and select a destination using the mouse, pressing Left Amiga followed by the number of a unit (1,2, 3 or 4), then that unit will go to the destination specified on its map screen. It is a good technique for moving about quickly in cheat mode.
General points When you first start to play War in the Gulf it all looks rather complicated. There are four windows on the screen, and you hove control of up to 16 tanks.
People who just pick up the game find mot they kill tanks on their own side before they even meet the enemy. It's therefore important to get used to the feel of it before expecting to beat the hell out of the opposition The best way to do this is to play the demo scenario, and moke sure that you follow everything thot goes on. Within half and hour, you'll find that the control mechanism is surprisingly easy and intuitive to use.
There are o few general points to remember when you are playing the game Ml tanks have much more armour than any of the other vehicles on your gwn side, so ensure that some of your units are entirely mode up of Ml s. These should be used for raiding missions, with the very powerful TOW missiles available on your other vehicles kept further away from trouble. This mokes sense, because the TOW missile hos a ronae of about 4km, If you find that the opposition are destroying you too easily there ore a number of things you condo.
If you use your Engine Smoke, then thot will make you o much harder target. The Iraqi vehicles have very inferior tobo red imgqing, and so will hove no firm target to shoot at. There is nothing to prevent you from using engine smoke most of the time, so keep it turned on os much as you wont This may mean that you need to use Infro Red imoging, particularly if your view is obscured by douds of smoke.
Normally the opposition unit which is firing at you will be marked on the map display, so os soon as you are receiving incoming fire, try and identify where the fire is coming from. Once you've been spotted it's often more effective to destroy the opponent than to tun away!
Use the areas of forest, particularly the tree line, to move in if you con. If you move your vehicles just inside the areas of forest on the map displays, then you will be oble to survey the battlefield while receiving "terrain protection'. Your vehicles are camouflaged and after the opposition will not be oble to spot you against the tree line.
Note carefully the aims of the forthcoming bottle, and work out a provisional strategy before you start.
Playing the game Failaka Island Battle 1 Choose the top left-hand battle oreo to start. The aim of this scenario is for the player to track a convoy heodma from o chemicol weapons store m the northern village to a worehouse in the southern village.
Then all that is needed is for the player to destroy the two buildings concerned. So, heod one group down the main read lo the northern village, ond another group diagonally across country to the villoge in rf e south-west After a few mingles you will spot o group of vehicles leaving the worehouse in the north (it is the most north-westerly building in Az Zor). You can then destroy the building, but leove the vehicles Your unit in the north should now be used »o stop any Iraqi forces re entering Az Zor This is quite simple, porticvMy if you use your engine smoke.
By the time your other unit reaches Saod Wo Soeed in the south (loy up on the edge of a nearby tree line, or you'll get shot at frequently) you should hove just enough time to spot the convoy turning into the second warehouse from the scu of this village. Destroy that worehouse (not any other) orvd you've won!
Battle 2 The battle area in the top right of Foikika Iskmd can be occessed next. The aim here is to getdlof the Iraqi forces out of the archaeological site of Ikaros ot the centre of this area.
Then you must ensure that no forces re-enter Finally you must locate a group of Gaskin missiles in the north east of the area, One grave complication about over running Ikaros is that if any building are destroyed, you lose the bottle To avoid the Iraqis taking pot snots at you (ond thereby cousing potential collateral damoge| you could well attack them from very long range using TOW missiles.
If you do this from for enough away, you will find that you can destroy the forces in Ikoros wilh- out any shots being fired bock. Now, then best woy of preventing a further re-occupation of the site is not to stick your forces in the middle and woit for a response, That way there certainly will be collateral damage. So it is b«t to set your forces on the edae of the forests surrounding Ikaros (maybe three groups), and awoit to ambush forces os they try to sler the d to is is jine Wo Kby you 3 any and II of } of ter.
Iiles ing fOV lots wol ery will ilh- lest the ind vn- lof ee 'to ?
Re-enter. In the meantime your fourth unit can j**ch for the missile site which is to the north east of the most north-eosJerly forest in the oreo. In all, if you hold out for 30-32 minutes from the start of ihe bottle you hove won.
Battle 3 The find battle area of Failalca Island is the southeasterly part of the island. You hove to provide protection for a group of svpport vehicles which will arrive at the soutnem villoge of Failaka after 16*18 minutes.
Prior to this you should hove cleared the rood to ihe north from the villoge Another aim is to destroy ihe helicopters in ihe northern airfield.
To deor the northern rood, send three of your units to the forest edge opposite the three locations where you have been told there are Republican Guard rood blocks.
When oil three groups ore in place then lounch o simultaneous attack on the three rood blocks. It should be Quite easy to destroy all three units. Now, use forest cover to take two of your units south to defend the convoy in Failaka.
If you place on unit to the north west of the villoge and one unit to the east of the village, you should be able to provide satisfactory cover At some point your fourth group will have to launch on attack on the northern airfield.
Set this group up in forest cover opposite the middle of the oirstrip, ond aim to destroy the attock helicopters in the middle of the strip as soon as you con. If you hove any difficulty with a counter-offensive launch os a result, your third unit should be free to help.
Bubiyan Island Battle 4 The first battle on this island is relatively simple You must take all of your troops over ihe bf-age.
And in the process destroy all of the groups defending the bridge oreo.
Then you must await attacks from tht sour while ensuring that all of your forces are hidden from view of the troops from the south Set n*o units in the comoufloge of the forests jusl *o me north east and north west of the bridge These should be able to dispose of ony southern troops The other two units should then try and cflock the police post in the north, The best route to lab is to veer to the west, using forest cover to come into the post of close range from the west If you hcrve destroyed oil of the opposition at the post, then you will win if you hold out at the bridge for 30 minutes or
so after the start ol f« battle.
Battle 5 This is quite a tricky bottle to get correct1 You must protect a convoy which is plying the rood from north to south and back, from attacks from the west of the battle area.
With four units, your best opprooch is to put each unit at a roughly equidistant position from north to south to defend the convoy You can provide adequate defence by standing still, so don't try ond escort the convoy. The units should be to the west of the rood, on the eastern end of the minefield.
You ore now obliged to keep a very dose eye on marauding attacks fram the west. If you keep aware of any odivity on your mbp display you should immediately respond. H is also fruitful to just scan fie battle view, to keep on eye out for enemy odivity.
If you are crware of the position of your convoy, and so are oble to note where the most danger lies at any moment, you will be able to provide protection without losing any vehicles. It can certainly be done* Battle 6 You have o series of objectives in this battle, firstly, you must prevent any breakout of Iraqi traops to fie east so ponton one unit at the eastern mat end of fie eost rood, and moke sure that al ocfMty on fie rood is stopped Secondly, you have to search (or two vehicles hidden in two separate buildings. In this battle area each forest has a building to the south of it.
Now, there is no need to destroy a building to find if there is a tank inside
- you can use the infra red sensors, which will tel you on o
ouick scan This will prove very useful, because holf of the
buildings will cost you money to destroy, and the lost thing
you con afford at this stage is to lose money On the Other
hgnd, mgke sure you do destroy any building (rodor tower,
satellite dish or comms tower) fiat will gam you money • you
wil need it oil!
You will just have to search every building in the area for the hidden vehicles (note that they are randomly hidden in different places every time you play). If you keep to the edges of the battle area os much as possible, you will avoid a proportion of enemy Cduritef-dttocks.
Once you ore ready, moke sure that you can reoch the rendezvous point ot the designated time The locaton i just to the east of the most southerly forest. If you happen to destroy the three rodor towers before the end, then you will moke even more m oney!

animation ¦ few, Programming 1 ndersiandlng code is a headache
unless you document It clearly.
Colin Yamall underlines the importance of comments f anyone has ever encouraged you to learn Arexx, one of the things they might have mentioned is its similarity to Basic. In many ways this is tme.
However, there- is one area where they arc very different indeed, and in this Arexx knocks spots off Basic.
The area I am referring to is the ability to handle dynamic code. Before looking at some examples of this ultra-useful programming feature, we will go over some of the main points of dynamic code again.
First of all, most of you know that interpreted languages, like Basic and Arexx, arc noticeably slower than compiled languages, like Pascal and C. However, the loss of speed is set off against a massive gain in ease of use and interaction. These features can be a lot more important than pure speed, especially when designing a new program.
TEDIOUS CHANGES Generally speaking, compiled languages need all of their source code to lie compiled, assembled and linked before the program can be tun. If any changes need to Ix* made, no matter how small, the whole process must Ix* repeated - this can be quite tedious.
You cannot change a compiled program's system space (the parts of the memory that store the program instructions and the variable names) once the program is loaded.
As a result, it is difficult to build your program up bit by bit. Testing your ideas and changes along the way.
Interpreted languages allow this kind of program development to happen much more easily.
Because die program Is run line-by-line (and not in one unit), when you make a change in any line, or add new lines, your program will take this new form.
However, up to now we still draw a firm distinction between the parts of the program that are considered to Ix* instructions and the parts dial are considered to be data. Dynamic code goes even further than simple interpretation. By blurring the distinction between than a compiler, dynamic code allows even more flexibility, since you do rax have to worry about the variables that your program will need when it is running - the language will allow the program to create them or eliminate them as necessary.
This means that ideas which are difficult to code with standard programming techniques become much easier to handle.
Dynamic code makes it easier to express what you think, because it does rax reinforce rigid boundaries.
Of course, any job could be done just as well (and probably more efficiently) if it was laboriously coded without dynamic code, but the amount of programming work involved would be much more.
You w ould need to write all the tricky bits yourself, instead of having them supplied automatically by the language. When you want a quick solution to a specific program, results can be much more important than technical niceties. * • Obviously if programs are sloppy, the results will suffer in the end. But if there is a quick way to get a result it is pointless doing it the hard way.
Having got some of the theory out of the way. Let's look at a few concrete examples to illustrate these ideas. We first Itxiked at dynamic programming in these pages about a year ago. And many of the articles since liave touched on the subject, either directly or indirectly.
DYNAMIC CODE The purpose of this summary is to highlight the main techniques involved. Ixxh for Arexx newcomer and for the more experienced users.
Arexx provides three main approaches to using dynamic code. These are compound symbols, the INTERPRET instruction. And tlie variable checking functions like Valud). We will look at them in detail. Remember that the)- are not normally found in tlx more common languages like Basic. Compound Dynamic Music ktailed the old A mix a music stalu art. Gets another iifixrailc - or is II just a fiu ellft? Paul Austin finds Out mm program and data. Whereas programs written in interpreted languages can Ix* paused and changed without reloading them, programs containing dynamic code can change the system
space while they are actually running (tliat is. Not in interactive or delxtg mode!).
Comms Phil South looks dou n from a icealber satellite and checks out Ihe neu CIX I send reader Amos BiX is beautiful according to Phil South, icIto x *'s about achiet ing orer-sized sprites uitbln Amos Publishing Ben Pointer discusses tl e printing process and Iron il can influence I be tray you prepare your designs ¦ Since this is equivalent to changing the program itself, this type of dynamic code is sometimes know n as selfmodifying code, or syntax semantics collapsing.
CONTROVERSY Now, as you might guess, things can get a bit hairy if |)rograiiis are allowed to modify themselves too easily.
There is quite a bit of controversy around programs that change tliemselves. It is generally recommended - and quite rightly so - that you should steer well clear of them.
Nevertheless, dynamic axle (like most powerful and dangerous things) can Ix* extremely useful in small and well controlled doses. The kind of thing we will use it for is not large applications, but small, clever “hacks" that will allow us to do tricky jobs in just a few lines of axle, with the maximum of ease. In the same way tfuit the interaction of an interpreter allows more flexibility symbols and second level sutatitution comprise the first major tool that Arexx supplies for dynamic coding. Now, if you have used Arexx at all, you will already have encountered compound symbols, since Arexx
uses them instead of arrays and tables, for example index.n. matrix.3.4. or man.age. We will now look at a process know-n as second level substitution which is very useful for creating dynamic tables easily. Used carelessly, it can also Ix the cause of many errors.
Suppose we have a string like this: tiring * **-lOQ“»bCS.. !ARThur- the compound symbol unusual.string gets effectively reduced by Arexx to: unusual.-100'ibCS..II!ARTIur There are two things to note in our example. Firstly, by using substitution, the system is able to create a variable (compound symbols are variables) w ith a name w hich cannot even ix* legally written in Arexx!
Secondly, since it is a variable, it can have any value, including, naturally, the name of its own node. So you can have a variable called array John 123 w ith a value of John 123!
R AREXX i therefore possible for the names of the variables be determined by their values. Initially the mind boggles . Bit. But once the technique is grasped it is very useful, and food fun.
Bilitv your f will iec«r stan- ndle.
Hink.
Roba- houi vork
• read Then can :r in :)ini-
* k at first year sub- This type of system is sometimes known as
content addressable memory, since variables can ! e identified
by their contents.
Here is a little example that counts and reports the frequency i words in a text. As you can see the code that does the actual v )fk is barley five lines long: * ..I I* VF-count.reix • I* ************* *1 count, s 0 tilt 1 " sent : 'The three blind lict juiced over the l«y uhite lice, In the blind illey.'
Process sentence uord by word * 00 UNTIL sent : " PARSE UPPED Vat sent uord sent.
I* reiove corns.fullstops *1 word = Stripfuord S' .') uord = Strip(wrd,T,Y) I* This is the siin code: *1 IT count.uord s 0 THEN 00 count.uord s 1 list = list uord END rch- tore mic "UC* will illy ind ELSE count.uord = count.word * 1 EDO • Mrite the results *1 00 UNTIL list = " PARSE m list word list SAT word count.uord EDO EIIT code The program is very straightforward. By initialising the stem count, to 0, all occurrences of count.anything will Ixr 0 unless specifically changed This is a basic rule of compound symbols in Arexx.
As each word is checked, its count is increased by one. At tlte si me time we maintain a list of unique words.
COSMETIC The rest of the code is mostly cosmetic management. Each word is read in and converted to uppercase, so that ‘The' and "ther are recognised as the same word.
The second parameter to the Strip(,'B .) Function simply means that Both leading and trailing punctuation must be removed.
Even in a simple interactive language like Basic this program would have taken substantially more effort, since we would have had to create arrays of strings and loop through them checking for the occurrence of each word.
In Arexx this table is maintained automatically and searched "on the fly" without us having to do anything about it. I hope this little example makes some of the theory we have discussed clearer.
Here is another very similar example that reads lines from a tile and writes them to another file, discarding all duplicate lines.
This idea is expressed in English very simply and Arexx lets us code it equally simply: ' DoOwpLlnts.rm •

tfrittlB(ofltfH«,lfiM) m EDI EIIT Once learned, this technique
has many uses Use Arexxs tracing facilities, especially the
TRACE I option if yog have trouble understanding what is going
on.
The INTERPRET instruction accepts any Arexx string and attempts to interpret it. Jus as tf u was a line of regular Arexx code. If you pbee it m an infinite loop that reads input from the keyboard, and passes a to this instruction, you effectively have an Arexx interpreter • ifuMitirprmr • IS fSIEVE!
PilSE *511 isput :i!!t»IEt input ill The most obvious use of this is when someone wants to introduce more code into a program while it is running.
We saw one useful example of this in tlte last issue, when a siring arriv ing from a remote computer was interpreted by Arexx and thus used i control programs running on an Amiga front a distance In fact, the INTERPRET instruction is useful anywhere that Arexx code has to be introduced externally I that is, where it is not part of the original program).
It is interesting to note that besides its advanced and arcane uses, the INTERPRET instruction can also be used to neaten up programs.
For instance, suppose we have a procedure which needs to share a very Urge number of global variables with the main program. Normally we would have to write them all at the Ix-ginning of the procedure code: Ijfunc: PROCEDURE EXPOSE wart virj varS var4 , »if5 var6 vir7 vir8...etc,ctc This can be particularly irritating if you have many procedures, and they all need to share the same variables. If these variables are all placed in a list in the main program, the following trick can Ix* used: globals * 'virl vir2 varj' ...ttc Nyfunt: INTERPRET 'PROCEDURE EiPOSE’ global* The INTERPRET
instruction will ensure that all the globals’ names are expanded and expose them so that they are shared.
• Next month we trill round up our otvniar of dynamic code, and
also look al the thinI tool that Arexx supplies.
The dynamic coding techniques possible with Arexx won't quite write your programs for you, but as Alex Gian demonstrates, they'll make some chores so easy you’d think they could...

Yorks Y021 1ND TEL FAX: 0947 600065 (9am - 7pm) n F* 1 icii die arrival of the AGA chip set and two new ani* mation formats, the confusion surrounding graphic quality and play-back speed has become even more r flounced titan before.
• )n the initial release of the AGA. The Amiga world was alight
* *h what traaspired to he totally outlandish claims concerning
jninution.
VIDEO Back in the early days almost anything seemed possible. Even hill frame, full overscan, Ham8 images would animation perfectly, no matter how much transition takes place between frames - avoiding to the pundits In truth, little of this initial hype actually held water, and in fact ruination on the so-called super last AGA appear only marginally quicker in some modes and invariably .slower when it came to hill Same playback.
After many a late night desperately try ing to squeeze additional
- peed from the AGA. My personal choke has to be old-style HAM.
J «es interlace - with overscan.
Although lacking colours in comparison to the AGA. Old HAM nevertheless offers the only full frame playback medium which can achieve reasonable image quality and more importantly a respectable frame rate.
Even with the compromise of lores and just 4,096 colours, achieving reasonable rates ami image quality cun still be a problem, which is best overcome with the assistance of ADPro and its SmOrd dithering, file'format conversion and animation load and save options - applied via the excellent ProControl batch processing interface.
STILL FRAME If you then team the HAM output from ADPro with the speed of an 040 you'll have the closest tiling to still frame recording the Amiga can achieve. In fact, in some cases animation playback will even exceed die 25fps regarded as the de facto videographic standard. As for the much-hyped Animation7 and Animations formats, things are again a tad disappointing, with even lo-res interlaced Ham images playing significantly slower than their old style counterparts Obviously die new modes haw the benefit of the huge numlier of colours and resolutions, but alas all remain just too slow
for full screen use - even with lire lx*st efforts of Ixxli Animation" and 8.
As a consequence Animation4) still remains die fastest playback format - easily beating both the new modes on either AGA or ECS machines. Not all animations requires full screen, and in such circumstances the new modes and tlx* AGA quite literally Wow the old-style HAM out of the water.
In fact, even the odd full-screen animation with limited movement and minimal reflections - assuming you're ray tracing - could be improved in certain AGA itxxles.
Finally if you arc ray tracing, always produce your frames as 24- bit files and leaving the scaling, resolution changes, animation construction and dithering to ADPro - as it will almost certainly do a better job than simply allowing the rendering software to make format alterations or animations.
And of course the essential SniOrd dithering required to achieve optimum playback speed and minimal colour stepping is only available through ADPro and ProConuol.
For those who suffer from 24-bit storage problems, ADPro supplies yet another life- saver in the form of Sentry - a program which comes as pan of the ADPro utilities collection.
When combined with ProControl, even the trickiest storage problem slxxild lie resolved.
Once set up with an appropriate directory and processing instructions the program simply sits in memory and constantly monitors the specified directory .All that remains ts to instruct your ray tracer or modeller to send its finished files to the same location Uben a frame is complete and saved out. Sentry will detect the newcomer and automatically initiate processing within ProControl Obviously PruCurtruI has to be resident in memory along w*h ADPro and the rendering software - which means a sizeahk HAM disk is essential However extra RAM will almost Smooth operator always work out far
cheaper than a new liard disk.
Paul Austin explains how to get the best in speed and quality when it comes to full frame animations As for ProConmi you merely set up the processing options as normal but define the source as Sentry rather than a disk file.
Obviously the finished animation has to go somewhere but as you're probably aware, a finished HAM interlaced animation is infinitely less bulky than a huge pile of 24-bits.
To add the finishing touch Sentry will even delete the original 24-bit after processing, thereby freeing your desperately needed disk space for the next frame.
Due to this ingenious approach to automation, huge animations can Ix.- produced without the horrendously restrictive intermediate .stage usually associated with animation production.
Having your ray tracer. ProControl. ADPro and Sentry all running at once doesn't do rendering time much good, but with really big produoions often requiring days or even weeks to generate, a few more hours isn't much to ask considering die Irenefits on offer.
Now thanks to die ADPro family, generating a 250 frame animation - roughly ten seconds - would be a simple matter of setting up the source, destination and processing commands and hitting die render Ixrtton - ensuring approximately 6 to 7Mb are free on your hard disk for storage of the finished Animation.
To put that into context, the same animation stored as 24-bits could require anything between 100 to 200Mb of lund disk space plus maylre a couple of I lours jx si-prcxJuction in order to generate the fmislred animation.
Obviously liaving die original 24 bits safely tucked away in case of acxidcnt lor additional experimentation is ideal, but let's face it.
How often does anyone haw that sort of free space easily available?
In short, the moral of this tawdry tale is get yourself a copy ol' ADPro and ProControl, and stick w ith old style lo-res HAM interlace for animations - at least until tire mythical 060-based A5000 I is usual to write continents in source code to make it clear what is going on. If you think that these are always put in programs for the benefit of other programmers, fcnk again.
It is very easy to write a program, forget about it for b few months, then decide to go back to it. If you have not ¦riudcd any information about how- it works, you may find that bou have trouble understanding your own program!
Don't wait until you finish coding before thinking about jdding comments, particularly when working on large programs, »this is a very bad practice.
A useful technique is to write the remarks before writing the bulk of the code so that you end up constructing a skeleton program upon which to build.
Having explained the need for comments you now need to know what they l x k like: (* This is coiaint *) so is this ) As you can see there are two styles - the first is the old way of doing things and requires a couple of keystrokes more effort.
Both styles serve the same purpose so it becomes a matter of personal preference as to which you adopt.
Personally. I prefer the first method because it makes CoflV- nmts easier to spot Another grxxl reason for using this style is that C uses curly braces as the equivalent of Pascal's liegin-cnd PROGRAMMING i :* 15 i :* i ? 10 The right-hand side of the assignment is always evaluated first, then the result stored in the variable If the two statements above were part of a program, the second one would be executed in the following way. The value of variable x (15) would lie added to the literal constant ten. Then the resulting value stored in x. The mos basic operations that may be applied to
integers ire plus, minus, multiply. And divide These arc represented by tlte following symbols: ? Addition subtraction
* muluphaiion dn division An integer operation will always resuh
in an integer resuh. Even in the case of divi- brackets. As
most of the RKRM examples are written in C, it makes sense to
avoid the possibility of slipping into one language while
programming in the otheii As you are probably aware, most
programs receive data, process it and output sonic result, Last
month we looked at text output using the writeO and writelnO
procedures. These prtxe* dures can also Ix.* used to output
numerical data hut before we investigate this, we need to see
how to input and process some numlx-rs.
Revealing your sources A variable is a memory location where a value may Ix? Stored.
It is referenced using a variable name and the value tliat it contains may Ix- changed by applying operations.

In the program above, we have defined three variables that will contain integer values (whole numbers). To put values in them, we use the assignment statement which takes the form: variable :* eiprestion Variables a and b are assigned literal values, while sum is assigned the result of the expression a + b. The name of the variable on the left-hand side of die assignment may also appear on the right-hand side: sion. When working with real numbers, division may result in a fractional pan - consider five divided by tw o. By convention w e would ay the answ er was two and a lialf Ixit using
integer division it would be two remainder one. The Pascal div function completely ignores any remainder so: i :* 5 div 2 would result in x being assigned die value 2.

45 Bruce Castle Road, London N17 SNL Tel: 081-808 0680 or those who've somehow avoided contact with Med in its countless incarnations. V5 is llx- Latest, cight-tr.K'k version, Ixiusting four-track sample playback akmgskle four- trick synth sounds and (» Midi tracks.
OctaMed ckxsn't stop with kindling samples, synth sounds and Midi, either - in fact, a complete and impressive sample editor reconJer comes as pan of the system as indeed does a separate synth sound generator editor.
MUSIC As far as sample editing is concerned there's very little to complain about with all llx- major edit function on kind for cut and paste operation. There .s even a fair selection of special effects such as optional anti-aliasing, pitch cluinging. Anti-clipping and unused space removal.
Unlike its predecessors, a 2,04 machine or a!x ve is essential, courtesy of the massive redesign of the interface which now depends heavily on the new features that WB2 3 machines provide.
A perfect example of this devotion to WB2 is the program’s online help which allows instant access to the accompanying on-disk manual. Thanks to die hypertext employed Iw tlx- Amiga guide, locating specific infonnation is now much quicker and more intuitive than simply ploughing through endless documentation - a rather annoying aspect of earlier revisions.
As well as the Amiga guide, the power of WB2 kis also been lavished on die interface itself with most of tlx* power icons controlling additional pop-up requesters which not only tidies up the overall appearance but provides a much improved one-stop approach for feature location, thereby leading the user towards the more obscure options which may have lx*cn overiooked in llx* past.
SUBTLE ADD-ONS On the Midi side you're no longer limited to Ixlsic multiples ol four tracks. Thankfully you can now have any number your Midi system requires, and even Ixtter tlx* limit of 100 bltxks has been trashed in preference for a wliopping 1,000 - great news for Ixxl) internal or Midi prrxJutlions.
Anotlier useful revision conams module packing - now Ixxh PowerPacker and SFCI) fonnats are catered for. SFCD is a packing format used in Stephan Fuhmiann's PowerPlayer module player program.
More subtle add-ons include the option to calculate module k*ngdi prior to saving, while a Save Timer feature provides dx* ability to specifies! A nc-defined auto-save period.
As for file formats dx*te's a new sample type entided ExtSamplc.
They are fairly similar to normal samples, except tliat they boast two newr very low (xtaves.
Akts such samples an* only useful for special effects due to certain hardware limitations which make their use within melodies a fairly risky undertaking.
On the Midi .side, yet another new file format appears to cater for the new 64-track support, sections and multiple play sequences.
In addition to new file formats a Sections option has been added, providing a major improvenx-nt by allowing the organisa- tion of songs in a much more hieramhical manner.
The idea is that you an create several play sequence lists - each of which can be named - and then define tlx* order in which they are played. The section list works as the master play sequence, Purchasing options If you're already sold on the all-new OctaMed it will set you back the princely sum of £30. With an upgrade from v4 available for £24 - great value H you're already familiar with Med.
If nol, it could be worth picking up an older version from the PD and upgrading later if you get hooked.
OctaMed Pro v5 is available from: Seasoft Computing. The Business Centre, First Floor, 80 Woodland Ave. Rustington. Tel: 0903 850378 where* the actual plav setjucnces arc treated as sub-sequences Continuing in the crusade for more ease of use. Blocks can now Ix* named allowing much easier kindling, and Ix'tter still up to 999 entries can be made within each sequence.
A new Display Max Tracks feature allows the user to define the maximum nunilxt of tracks that can be displayed on-screen, while a new mouse config option allows the mouse to he configured to your taste for selected tracks on off. Cursor position or range marking operations.
Yet another intuitive improvement entitled Play .After Loading automatically initiates play hack and can he -et up to flush unused instruments when clearing the current song as part of a mufe-module Better still, a new Pin- Toner option can Ix* reset by pressng the R gadget next to it.
Thereby tnsanth piNtiLnmg the song at the specified reset pomt when required.
OctaMed revisited The old stalwart of Amiga music gets yet another upgrade - or is it just a facelift? Paul Austin reports New sample editor features Although the sample editor has been a part of the Med environment for some time, it must be said that it has defmitety improved with keeping, and to be honest it's more than a match for many a stand-alone sample editor thanks to the new v5 add-ons.
Invert negates the ranged waveform.
Chop discards non-ranged parts of the sample.
Remove Unused Space removes empty space from both ends of the sample, Play Buffer Contents allows you to listen to what the copy buffer contains.
Change Volumo enhanced an option to avoid clipping plus four presets for doubling, halving and fading in out.
Change Pitch enhanced provides an option to cancel the current fine-tune value plus the ability to turn off anti-aliasing.
Mix enhanced source destination levels can be set.

I i i - t's completely amazing what you car get at on-line these days. Say you needed a really recent picture of ] the earth from space. Where would I you get it?
Well Meteosat sends weather pictures down to earth on a daily basis, and the University of Edinburgh very usefully puts them on its own computer system for anyone to download. The most convenient mirror site is Imperial College.
This mirror system means that certain sites contain information from Other sites which is updated (Itopcful- ly) fairly regularly. But Internet being what it is. You can expect that tlk* very thing you are interested in suddenly stops Ixring current as soon as you start taking an interest.
Hie images on this page are prtxluced from Meteosat data three times dally, at 0702 GMT. 1130 GMT and I $ 02 GMT. In all five regions are represented on the pics from Edinburgh: the UK, Europe. Scandinavia, the Atlantic and the whole world. At the tink* of writing the Atlantic images were temporanly unavailable.
Ixjt hopefully these should have returned I))1 late July.
Out of this world!
You an get pictures in GIF or JPEG format, and obviously if you check it out you'll see that the JPEGs are about half to a quarter of the size of the GIFS, and tlk* GIFs are only 256 colours whereas the JPEGs are 24-bit.
Look in the JPEG directory and you find high resolution images of Europe (1,250 x 625) and also soiik* very' large images of Afnca (1,024 x 1250), and like all tlk* Meteosat pictures they are made in two types using die two types of imaging system on the satellite, visible and infra red.
If you want some satellite pix, the site to FTP to is: src.doc.icjc.uk otherwise known as Imperial College London. The pictures are mirrored from met.ed.ac.uk or I Iniversity of Edinburgh. Other sites througlkHit die Net provide pictures local to tlk* node trt question, so you can get pictures of oilier places if you delve around a bit. One of die lx*si ways to do this is via Gopher, as the process is entirely automated.
Phil South looks down from a weather satellite and checks out the new CIX Usenet reader Incidentally if you run a PC emulator at all you might be interested in the FLI animations also on tlx same site, under ‘animations' rather than “images'. These are stem sequences, just like the ones they show you on the TV' Ik-hind Michael Fish. Get them lx*forc the old Cod himself, with tlk* power of comms.
How to Usenet To contact Phil South email him as: snouty@cix.compulink.co.uk uad1135@dircon.co.uk CIX has always been a bit classy in its features, and the Usenet feed has always been a top notch way of seeing all the chat on one of the world's biggest electronic conferences.
But writing to Usenet has always been a bit tricky: using mail to news.demon.co.uk to write messages is one way. For example.
But now there is a new way to enter the world of Usenet, and this is via the new Newsnet reader. This is a proper RN type reader for the Net and it must be one of the most complex things it's ever been my misfortune to handle on-line.
It's complicated, there are a load of commands to learn, it's unpredictable because itchy trigger fingers make mistakes, but you know what? I love it.
In fact RN-lype newsreaders have been in place in boards like The Direct Connection for ages, but this is a fairly recent development on CIX.
I would have thought with all the brains at CIX they could have made a reader which was more like their own system, make it a seamless part of the CIX environment so that you can access the system via a OLR like Nicola or something like that.
But no, it's a complex beastie, and I'm only just confident enough to use it after a few weeks of dibbling about on it. The best thing you can possibly do is to download the file called NEWSNET.DOC from the cix manual topic, and read the document very carefully indeed.
It contains all the keystrokes you need for the reader, and in fact I'd print it out so when you hit a problem you can flip the pages and at least have a stab at typing the nght thing.
I’m sure that like learning to navigate around CIX in the first place, using this new RN reader will become easier over time, and with use the idea of choosing whether to press s or S or AS or K or k or n or P or $ will be second nature like telling people your name. Mine for example is, um. Hang on a minute... If you've missed any of these issues, now’s your chance to put things right, by either buying an individual issue or a full six months1 worth. But hurry - stocks are limited!

I was pondering the other day tin* possibility of doing something with big scroll texts which didn't use up a huge quan- tity of code and didn't rely on really hard coding techniques or large amounts of memory hank space.
I delved around in my archives and found a really neat routine to do just that, using nothing more sinister dun the much underused ZOOM command.
AMOS What is needed is a little routine which thinks big. Something which does a lot for a small amount of space and effort. The ZOOM command is a perfect choice, as it does one job remark ably well and with a great amount of flexibility.
You can zoom an area of the screen to tlte current screen or another screen completely automatically and virtually instantly This speed and flexibility will stand us in good stead for the task ahead.
The first step towards a big scroll text is to embed your text into a alphanumeric variable, like LS: Lf=* i»os Alaanac... four one true choice for Aaos Eicellence... 18 -t *" Jaos is the best thing since sliced bread...* Initialise die L variable lo 0. And open a screen: 1*0 Screen Open 1,416,254, lowres Then you define a scroll, from 0,6 to 116,256: Def Stroll 1,0,0 To 416,256,-58,0 Next dear up the screen furniture like cursor and flash: Curs Off : flisk Ofi then you’re into the main loop: .SCROLL If Rouse K«y=1 Then Esit LOOP The loop does the loop until a mouse key press equals 1. Or left
mouse button, and each time it activates the JSCROLL procedure.
'Ilk* procedure as you can see does a very simple job, printing up the text a letter at a time on one screen and zooming it and scrolling it on the next.
The prtx.edu re is like so: Procedure .SCROLL Shared LS,L If l=L«n(ll) Than 1=0 The variables are shared so that tlte)' can be used by tlte rest of tlk program, and 1. Is tested to see if it should reset Screen 0 : Loeate 0,0 : Print RidStLl,1+1,1) loot 0,0,0,1,I To 1,352,0,400,256 The Zoom takes the letter from screen 0 and zooms it up big onto screen I. then performs the defined scroll. Simple and very effective: Screen 1 Scroll 1 A bit of simple incrementing and finishing tlk* proc completes dk* Write a program!
Here's an interesting one. It’s a film about robots like Terminator or Hardware. Our hero makes it to the main computer to get a readout about the robots which are attacking the planet. OK write a program that the movie director could show on screen. Technical readouts, plans, vector graphics, it's up to you. Send your entry to the usual Amos Aspect address marked Robot Attack.
Loop: Inc L End Proc Tlk program is excellently simple and compact. Which if the big text routine isn't the major pan of the program is of paramount.
Moving on. Most movies these days have computer displays in tlk*m. For w hatev er reason. Mosdv just to make the films l x k mod- em and up to date.
.Amos is an ideal program for generating displays which don't actually do anything, due to its ability to create graphics and sounds m real time which would take hours under normal aruinwances. Take for example this litrie radar display Degree Screen 1st? ,1Z~. ,2lt ,2 ,.if»i : C«r$ Off ; Ccloor 1,1+9 : Cotoor M : lak 1 : Cli 0 FiN off the usual set-up guff, which almost Thinking Phil South decides that big is beautiful and goes about achieving over-sized scrolling with Amos evcr ' .Amos programmer can do with their eyes ck»scd.

The program goes round and around leseit for A*G=359 Td 0 Step -J If you want to go 360 degrees then a FOR NKXT loop is a good wav- to ensure you get there.

Now swap the screen and wait for a vertical blank. This means tliat the sweep of the radar is as flicker free as you can nuke it: Write stuff If you have an Amos question, then please write to Phil South. Amos Column.

Fic*r designing your stationery pack, the first tool you will want to reach for is your publishing software. But Ixfore you do that, let's jump forward to the printing process to see how two methods of reproduction can change the way you lay out and prepare the artwork for each piece of tttionery.
A popular method of duplicating artwork is photocopying it.
This has the advantage of being quick, as there arc fewer steps involved in the process compared to that of artwork reproduced using a printing press. As well, you only have io order the imount of copies needed at any one time A But there can I* limitations too. Many copy shops can only produce black and white copies, so if you require colour you may need to have tire stationery reproduced on a pnnting press.
Or you could go to a copyshop that lias a spot colour copter These work the same way as a normal copier except that the machine is fitted with different coloured toners which can he selected to replace the normal colour, black. In this w~ay, any elements on the page Ixing copied will Ix* printed in the chosen colour.
If your copyshop has a copier like this, find out what colours their machines are capable of so that you can go back to your design and see how these can Ix* worked into the layout.
The drawback to adding colour to your designs like this is that you will Ix charged for each time a copy of the stationery needs to go hack through the copier. You will also need to produce more artwork - one piece for each colour used - so check with your copysliop Ixfore laying out each piece of stationery.
Copy cats Another limitation to look out for is the quality of photixopying.
Which varies between copysliops, so try and get some examples before having many hundreds run off. For lelterlieads and compliment slips you might like to try a woven paper like Conqueror, which lias a very professional feel alxiut it.
The other method of reproducing your stationery is on a printing press. This is suitable for long runs of ‘SIX) or more, and where higher quality is required. Your business card will need to be produced like this if your copyshop cannot photocopy onto card.
One thing Ixith tlxse metltods of printing have in common is howr Uiey affect the size of the original artwork. You may, for example, have settled on a page size of Ai for the letterhead.
Providing you liave margins around the edges of the page that shouldn’t he a problem when it comes time to create the artwork or have it reproduced.
But if you were to run all the elements on the page- up to the PUBLISHING edge of the paper you would need to output the page to a printer that can handle paper larger than A i because an A4-only printer cannot print edge-to-edge due to hardware restrictions.
This means using an A3 printer, or check w ith your copyshop, who may be able to output your page to an A3 PostScript dev ice.
One way to avoid having to use an A3 printer may be to use an Al printer, but cut and paste the dements. If you do this, don't forget that even if you manage to run the elements to the edges on your page, a photocopier or a printing press will also have hardware limitations which may limit the area of an A4 page it can print on to.
In these circumstances the page will once again need lo he printed on lo over- sized paper The reproduction process affects mostly the business card as you cannot lay out the earth on the page until you know what si2c cud the coprehop uses to print on. And what size the cards w ill he after tnmming Ben Pointer discusses how the printing process can alter the way you prepare your designs OtKC you know the answers to these two questions you will Ix* able to work out how mam cards you can fit on a single page Worth remembering is that some copyshops will be able to photocopy on to card, hut
make sure that card is around 230gms as card lighter than this w ill have an unprofessional fed to it.
So there you haor x Before booting up your publishing software think hard about how you want to lay out your designs and how those designs might affect the way it is printed. Go and ask your copyshop a kx of questions to make sure there won't be any problems w ith the reproduction process.
I Elements that go all the way to the edge ol the page run the danger ol being cut off when printed. If printing to an A4 machine, leave a margin of around 12mm jM-JUhl 0*1 Q* . .. cx 17?

One time or another is use files created on another computer Ideally, they also want to use the same software which means investing twice for the same product, once for each platform However this route is not always possible because developers of more serious software often neglect the Amiga market in favour of the bigger profit margins available from the PC and its clones.
Fortunately the Amiga is a jack of all trades and apart from being able to read, write and format disks from other home computers, it is also able to emulate them.
There are two ways in which this can be achieved - by hardware add-ons which turn the Amiga into a hybrid machine, or the soft option which uses cunning programming to perform the same task. Obviously, having specialist hardware will result in faster, and sometimes more accurate emulation but software emulation will not invalidate your warrantee and is an ideal solution on accelerated machines.

A configuration screen wifl appear so that trie drives can be rutaksed to recognise the IBM dak format and the norw mode and screen colours set Addconah- the panU and senal pom can be used either via trie emJaaor or by trie Amiga so they are also configurable PC Task allows two Am a floppy drives to be used as PC drives. They are referred to as A and B: and changing between them is performed just as on a PC by typing the device name.
Hard disks are also catered for and it a possible to initialise the system from a hard drive partition » long as it is bootable.
Because some versions of MS-DOS do not work on partitions that are larger than 32Mb. Th«s « the largest recommended size.
The emulated graph mode depends upon which graphics PC Task by Chris Hames takes the form of the latter type of emulator and is compatible with all Amigas running Kickstart Workbench 1.2 or higher with at least I 2 meg of RAM. Although some features do need a minimum of I meg.
It will not turn your Amiga into an 80286 or 80386 IBM. But as long as the software you want to use will run on more humble machines, you should be able to run it via PC Task. In order to be as compatible with as many Amigas as possible, three different versions of the software are supplied.
These are tailored for the Motorola 68000 and 68020. The standard Amiga processors, plus the 68010 used in some accel- The PC Task configuration screen Colors ¦_ ?C-M 9 tor's ilwi, ill! !• igjji: w.nA Jiwlibiife, This is version 2.83 SeriaII:10538 Graphics Adapter Q C6A Use Serial 7J Use Parallel j Quasar Distribution Start I Priority uhen selected |1 ) Priority uhen not selected ]-1 21 Nenory Kilobytes li 640 ] Hininun Leave Available J64 J HardDrive ([ K Use Defaults Create HardDiskFilej Save configuration I Quit Ever wanted to run your favourite PC package on your Amiga? Well now
there's an ingenious new product that lets you do just that adaptor has been selected and ranges from MDA to VGA MDA is a mono text-only adaptor and allows the text and background colours to be user-defined using the familiar Amiga slider type gadget. The default is CGA which has the highest compatibility because it is the most completely implemented adaptor EGA is essentially the same as a combination of MDA and CGA but has a few more graphics modes, The more modem VGA is also available, but only to users of AGA Amigas (ie Kickstart Workbench 3).
Once suitably defined, the settings may be saved to disk before initiating the emulator by clicking on the start button MSDOS is not supplied but as the intended user should alto have access to an IBM this is no great loss. MSDOS v5.0 or v3.3 is recommended and can easily be copied across from your PC. Instructions to produce a system disk are included, which will allow a handful of essential commands to be used These are built into the emulator and include cd, dir, del copy and type plus date and ds.
Files may be transferred between Amiga and PC disks using the two supplied utility programs CopyToA and CopyTol These are initially on the supplied Amiga format disk and must be copied to a PC format one before they can be accessed and executed by the emulator.
A script has been provided to perform this task and a executed by clicking on an Amiga icon. There is no reference to this m the user manual which may confuse users who launch straight into the emulator without looking through the contents of the disk.
IBM Pcs are limited to 640k of RAM while most Amiga owners have one megabyte. In theory it would be possible to have the emulator loaded with access to 640k. However. PC Task looks for a contiguous block of chip or fast RAM which will not be available on Workbench Kickstart 1.3 Amigas with a half meg expansion.
This is because chip and fast RAM are in separate locations.
PC Task works with either type of memory and will choose the one with the largest amount To gain full use of the emulator, a hardware modification may be made to obtain a megabyte of format, to use the Amiga's hard drive takes a little bit of setting up. There are two ways that this can be done - the first is by far the easiest and involves creating a hard disk file.
?
Chip RAM. Alternatively, more fast RAM may be added which will have exactly the same result on the performance of the emulator PC Task does not take over control of the Amiga and is quite capable of multitasking. By default, it sets a priority for itself so that it gains as much processor time as possible. When it is not being used, the priority is changed so that it gains as little processor time as possible. This way. Whichever task is being used, it will not significantly suffer due to processor sharing Because the emulator will only read disks that have the IBM Essentially, a large
file of up to 32 Mb is created from the configuration screen, the emulator booted and the file formatted.
The other method is more complicated and the manual recommends that only advanced users attempt it. This is because mistakes could easily result in the loss of data from the hard disk. Strangely, the manual does not recommend that a backup Is made before attempting to create a hard disk partition.

and they don't need any prompting.
Although the emulator is limited to two hard drives at any given time, there is no reason why more cannot be created on systems with a large disk capacity or multiple drives. The two that are actually used are defined just before emulator startup. Because booting does not take very long it would be reasonably painless to exit emulation in order to switch drives.
As well as being run from Workbench, it is also possible to run PC Task from the Shell. Some configuration features are not available from the options screen and must be accessed by invoking the emulator with command line arguments or by adding tooltypes to the icon.
Advanced options Once the emulator settings suit your requirements you may become irritated by the settings screen which appears every time the software is executed. One of the additional options allows this to be bypassed which is a particularly welcome feature.
Among the other advanced options, there is one to change the font Most however are less cosmetic and allow the software to be used on and configured for as wide a range of Amigas as possible.
In this vein, there is a choice of serial and parallel pom on machines that have more than one of each and the ability to ignore a GoldenGate I or II board. There is even an option which allows the 68020 version of PC Task w be used with bad 68030 boards which can't read from odd locations.
Despite the fact that the emulator is only capable of emulating a primitive PC, the product has one surprisingly forward looking capability - CD support PC Task comes complete with its own CD-ROM driver which, when combined with the MSDOS CD-ROM extension software, should allow access to PC CD ROMs via an Amiga CD drive.
MiniGen L500 Replacement PAL TV and video adaptor Supplier: Lola Electronics Phone: 0858 880182 Price: £49.95 For those who'vp been kicking around the Amiga scene for some time the accompanying picture of Lola’s MiniGen may look more than a little familiar.
This isn't exactly surprising as the basic design of MiniGen has remained pretty much the same for almost five years.
Although the look may be familiar the name may not as the original MiniGen was superseded early on by an almost identical unit from another supplier which profited from much better marketing and hence captured huge sales back when the Amiga video market was still young.
During the intervening period little has changed, with the exception of slightly better keying quality Control of the MiniCEN is simple using the three-way toggle when using interlace. As for the design, the same story applies with only the most rudimentary genlocking controls providing three basic on off keying states.
Connecting up follows the usual format with the MiniGen plugging directly into the 23 pin video-out on the rear of the machine, As for video signals, life couldn't be much simpler with just two phono connec » tions handling the incoming and outgoing video respec tively On the top of the unit awaits the single three-way toggle control. Unlike most genlocks the MiniGen has no dials or faders, in fact control is strictly a matter of flicking between mixed, picture or graphics Basically this means you can have the Amiga graphics keyed over the incoming video, the video on its own or just the Amiga
graphics minus the video.
As you might expect this all or nothing approach doesn't exactly lend itself to creative freedom. But for £49.95 It’s still worth consideration if your Lola L520 Adaptor Replacement PAL TV and video adaptor Supplier: Lola Electronics Phone: 0858 880182 Price: £29.95 Although the standard Commodore adaptor is a pretty hard- wearing beast, accidents do happen, and if the aforesaid add-on happens to be your only window on your Amiga - courtesy of a TV - your computing exploits can come to a sudden and very abrupt end. T Worse still, since the demise of the A500 finding a replacement Commodore
original has become almost impossible. Enter Lola Electronics, a company only too willing to step in and save the day with their very on designer replacement Although swathed in black, the Lola offering is very similar to the old vanilla Commodore Adaptor, being roughly the same size and with almost identical input output options. Why Lola choose black rather than a subtle beige is a mystery, but if it works, who cares?
Although the casing is slightly different installation is almost identical with the unit slipping into the 23 video slot as if it was made for the job - which funnily enough it was... Once safely entrenched you can move on to the twin videofTV outputs and the single audio-in on the rear of the unit For those who may be a tad confused as to why there's a audio- in, the answer is all to do with television.
Alongside the audio-in sits another RCA phono connection labelled TV CH36. As you probably guessed this provides the RF-out suitable for connection direct a TV via a phono to RF cable - which comes as part of the overall Adaptor package However in order to get the Amiga audio as well as the video combrfwd within the RF signal yet another Y phono connector is required - again supplied with the irxt - which cakes the audio from the left and right phono sockets on the rear of the Amiga and comhnes them .-a the auto m on the adaptor to produce an RF Signal complete with a combined mono auto All
that's left « to select ctanrai U on the TV and up pops the A rvga n afl o monophorac glory However that s not the end of the adaptor story as an separate ndeo-out also krts on the rear Thanks to this output you car not crty jse a TV as a surrogate monitor but also record the Arvo's output on video - without the need for an encoder or genlock Admittedly the qua cy or t exactty broadcast but if you want to put your injnwwni or artwork on tape there's no cheaper way of doing *.
HyperCache Professional Hypercache Professional Supplier. Uendian Distribution Phone:061-5433500 Price: £46.95 Any product that claims to accelerate AmigaDOS storage devices by as much as 2.200 per cent has to be worth a look, particularly when it's done with software!
Hypercache professional make? Just such a claim but before putting it through its paces, let's see what it actually is and does.
To quote from the manual. “Hypercache Professional is an N-way associative look-ahead cache system for any block- accessible device" Essentially, what this means is that it is a system that reads data from a backing store (whether that be disk, a SCSI tape system or CD-ROM) in anticipation of a request for that data by any program The technique that it employs is usually found on mini and mainframe computers to implement virtual memory, and it is unlike that any other such program is currently available on the Amiga.
On such machines, programs like this are of little concern to users for the simple reason that they form a part of the operating system. They are transparent to the end user - their presence is not apparent and system peformance is often attributed solely to the hardware.
To test the software, we used the default settings on an A500 Plus, accelerated A1500 and A4000 040 and measured performance with the Diskspeed utility.
Surprisingly, both the 86000 and 86030 versions of HyperCache caused the dreaded guru to appear when the hard drive was accessed. However on the A500 Plus and A40040 the program did run so here are a few results: Testing directory manipulation speed on A500 Plus Without HyperCache With HyperCache File Crewe: 16 files sec l9filesAec File Open: 29 files sec 42 files sec Directory Scan: 9S files se 182 files sec File Delete 44 files sec 69 filcs sw Seek Read: 43 seeks sec 141 seeks set Testing directory manipulation speed on A4000 040 Without Hypercache With HyperCache File Create: 31 files sec

Having said that, there is a significant increase in reading from hard drives and so HyperCache Professional could prove to be a useful uulity for users with a spare half meg of RAM.

At roughly twice the speed of the standard Commodore internal it's pretty impressive - and barely makes a sound m the process.
Unlike some of the opposition, the Rodite comes with both anti-click and anti-virus which when combined with its pure elegance and speed make it a very attractive buy.

Sturdy, reliable, boring, noisy - that's the Cumana. In fact we’re talking the computing equivalent of the Volkswagen Beetle.
If you’re not after the whistles and bells of more modern drives but simply want an external that will last longer than you will, the Cumana is the perfect choice.
Price: £49.95 Supplier: Cumana Limited Tel: 0483 503121 Power PC880B Now here's a drive that's fit to burst with additional features.
Aside from working as a standard floppy, the unit also boasts an anti-virus mode which immediately write protects all the your floppies by completely disabling the wnte-to option The next feature is a slightly dubious addition which takes the form of a software hardware copying system entitled Blitz Copy.
As you might have guessed, this isn't meant for normal AmigaDOS copying tasks and that's about a far as we should go with this particular line of thought.
Although rather long, the drive still remains surprisingly thin considering the amount of hardware stuffed inside.
As an all purpose drive the PC8808 has to be one of the best buys on the market especially when its obvious flexibility is combined with a very reasonable asking price. Available in both black and vanilla.
Price: £60 Supplier: Power Computing Tel: 0234 843388 HARD TIMES This month the Market spotlight falls on perhaps the most popular Amiga peripheral - the essential external floppy Zydec If you're repelled by the designer label look the Zydec offering provides the minimalist styling and space conscious design that any environmental-friendly Amiga user would happily swap his or her 2CV for.
Although small and amazingly quiet considering the lack of any anti-dick hardware, the Zydec does have a few faults in comparison to its more bulky and feature packed counterparts.
Because of the extremely slim design. Zydec have been forced to add vents on the top and to the rear of the drive.
Although this may seem a perfectly acceptable design, a coffee spill could soon change your mind If you're looking for a basic but efficient drive the Zydec is fine, but considering the extra features on many of the opposition's models I must admit it wouldn't be my first choice unless desk space was extremely tight.
Price: £52.99 ind delivery Supplier: Evesham Micros Tel: 0386 765500 Power Dual Drive As the name suggests, this offering from Power Computing is a twin drive comprising two PC880B drives in one amazingly small case. Like Power's single drive, both units offer the anti- click, anti-virus and Blitz Copy.
The drives themselves are totally independent as far as the Amiga is concerned and like all the disks in the round-up.
Through ports and orVoff switches are provided.
Unlike all the other drives, the Dual Drive also boasts a separate power supply - an extremely useful addition if your machine is already heavily laden with additional hardware.
It's worth stressing that the anti-virus option does not actually check for a viral presence. Both the single and dual drives simply disable the machine's ability to'write information to disk.
If you're in the market for a twin external system the Dual Drive offers a compact, economical and feature-packed answer that avoids the power problems often encountered on heavily expanded systems.
Price: £125 Supplier: Power Computing Tel: 0234 843388 Power PC881 internal With the everyday abuse the average internal has to endure, replacement of your original drive is often essential - especially if you use a lot of commercial games which often drive the long-suffering internal to destruction, courtesy of sometimes brutal copy protection.
If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of owning a dicky internal, Power Computing offer replacement kits for both the A500 and A2000 which are simplicity itself to install and use the same basic drive unit employed in the external models.
Price: £45 Supplier Power Computing Tel: 0234 843388 Power XL Drive Last but not least comes a pinnacle of external engineering, namely the Power XL high density drive. Once installed along with a small patch program, the XL allows any Amiga to share the I 76Mb storage available only to the A4000.
In addition to high density use, the drive can also read standard 880k disks automatically. Better still, it will read and write PC disks whether they are high (1.44Mb) or double (720k) density.
Although rather pricey when initially released, the drive has had a dramatic price cut and now ships with ten high density disks for a very reasonable £99.95. If you take your computing seriously and regularly need to transport large files, the XL is a real bargain.
