Several other companies reported products in the final stages of development, although said production of some had slipped. Gremlin, one of the biggest CD32 developers, were unavailable for comment.
Commodore spokesman Tim Green was unaware of the delays and expected around 40 CD32-specific titles to be available by Christmas as planned.

i. 00 .25 .00 .00 00 Hnol Writer: Meeting professional standards
SALES of Commodore’s CD32 console are being lost because games
promised for the system are not appearing an time, Amiga
Computing can.
More than 40 titles were originally promised for the machine by Christmas, but we have learned that launch dates are slipping on many.
At the time of going to press only a handful were avail* able, although Commodore had earlier expected 18 to have been on sale by the end of September.
Many are now promised within the next few weeks, but without high quality software on sale during the early Christmas buying period, some shoppers are turning to alternative systems.
Sega and Nintendo have just unveiled new packs and although their machines offer lower specifications, console buyers are being attracted by their huge software catalogues.
Darren Booth, the assistant manager at one electronics store in Manchester, told us that some customers who look first at the CD32 are then buying a Sega or Nintendo console. He said people are impressed by the number of games available - and especially Sega titles Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat - although he was satisfied with CD32 sales so far.
Of the developers, Millennium have stuck close to their THE publishers of Amiga word processors Final Copy II and Pen Pal claim their latest package produces documents as professionally as expensive PC and Apple Macintosh systems.
Softwood's (0773 836781) Final Writer uses one-touch Command buttons to enable the user to create documents easily, with many functions accessed by a mouse dick. Its features include auto-indexing, a sales CD32 plans but several others wc spoke to blamed development delays as the main reason for late launches.
Three titles will appear from Ocean Software before G ristmas - at CD32's launch they had promised six.
The firm's spokesman Steven Hayes said legal complications are holding back the release of Jurassic Park and CD32-specific titles are taking longer to program than planned.
Thalion's Tony King, meanwhile, said his company have scrapped plans lo support the console, although the rights to Lionheart have been passed to another software house.
And at System 3 operations manager Tim Best said: "We are certainly making a heavy commitment to CD32 - but we're not rushing into it" He explained the firm will be launching at least one document will print - scaling, half toning and crop marks.
The £129.95 package comes with more than 100 typefaces and 100 EPS clip art images. It needs at least 15Mb of memory and a hard drive.

The Projet II inkjet offers laser- ]uality output at 300 dots per inch and speeds of three pages per minute in draft and two pages per minute in letter- quality mode.
The £304 machine contains three letter quality fonts - Courier, Letter Gothic and Times Nordic - and a built-in sensor which detects when ink is running low.
But Citizen see one of the machine's biggest strengths in its low running costs - claimed to be two pence per page.
"Separating the ink cartridge from the print head allows the cartridge to be replaced 12 times on average within the life of a single print head," said marketing manager Julie Haswell. 'This keep running costs substantially lower than many other inkjet printers, where the head is disposed of at the end of the life of each cartridge."
A colour version of Projet II will be released early next year, at which time the firm will also launch ABC, an "ultra-low end" dot matrix machine targeted at first time printer buyers.
It will come with Amiga software designed to help newcomers get started and automatically install drivers, and have a print speed of 192 characters per second in draft mode.

W What's new Imagine 3.0 was nearing release as this column went to press.
The new version ot the 3D rendering program, which will be available for both Amigas and MS-DOS machines, has tons of new features.
The new real-time interlace makes image composition much easier and more intuitive. A 3D font editor lets you create text within the program, and the new and improved deformation control makes warping text and objects a snap.
The program also sports improved anti-aliasing and lull kinematic motion control, which lets you easily create complex, natural motions in your animations.
AGA support is there, ot course, and over 100 new textures make for more realistic objects. There's a lot more here as well, and Imagine 3.0 promises to give Real 3D and Lightwave 3.0 a real run lor the money. Look for m-depth coverage in an upcoming issue.

Have a Lite Fascinated by beautiful Vista Pro renderings but upset that the program requires 4Mb of memory? Virtual Reality Laboratories is about to release a version that will work well on a standard A1200 called VistaLite.
The new version does away with some of the tancier features of VistaPro 3.0 and adds virtual memory support. It doesn't support 24-bit pictures, but it does create 256-colour and Ham8 pictures. VistaLite renders pictures up to 640 x 512 in size, and still supports trees, clouds, haze, snow, lakes and rivers. Scripting s still there as well, so you can render frames for animations.
Even without all the bells and whistles of the ful- blown program, it s still a heck of a lot of fun to play with. And there are a couple of features that VistaPro doesn't have, such as pre-defined palettes for different season, sunrises, and sunsets.
Price hadn't been set at press-time. Contact Virtual Reality Laboratories. 2341 Ganador Court. San Luis Obispo. CA 93401 for more information, or call (805) 545-8515, or fax (805)781-2259.
Softwood is not your typical software company. Standard industry practice is to start advertising - or at least hyping - products many months before they're available. Not SoftWood, though. The company released the new Final Writer word processor before advertisements even hit the US magazines, and only scant days after ads appeared m the UK.
This new word processor resembles Final Copy II, but Sports tons of new features. It’s more comparable to the expensive professional PC word processors than competing Amiga products.
It borrows the popular button bar concept from Windows programs such as Ami Pro or Word for Windows 6.0. It has 180 different buttons which you can drag and drop onto up to eight stnps (you could create one stnp for graphics functions, one for text formatting, and so on).
You can not only map built-in Final Writer commands to the buttons, but also AmigaDQS commands, and Arexx commands and scripts. You can even map text strings to them, so you could create a button to automatically insert your name and address in a document.
Final Writer has full support for loading IFF graphics, like Final Copy II, but it also supports Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) outline graphics. Unlike most programs, Final Wnter will print EPS Amiga Midi musicians will be happy to hear that Music-X is back on the market, now from HollyWare. The latest update, v2.0, sells for $ 199.95. It includes new modules such as DeFlam, Quantizer, RexxEdit for creating customised macros, and PrintEventList.
It now supports more than a dozen additional Midi commands and can play sounds using your Amiga's audio capabilities as well as Midi - the Amiga voices are great for percussion effects.
Music-X 2.0 supports Blue Ribbon's One-Stop Music Shop, as well as the Alesis ADAT and AI-2. Upgrades from Music-X 1.0 are $ 100.
If you liked the original Music-X but found it difficult to compose music using it, you'll love Notator-X.
This package is a score-writing program that works with Music-X 2.0 and any sequencer that supports the Midi file format.
The program uses standard notation and supports notes, chords, rests, dynamics, angled beams, groups, ties, octave symbols, text frames, and more.
You can have up to 32 tracks on 18 staves, as well as five lines of verses with a maximum of three different endings in a score. The Lyrics Editor automatically aligns lyrics under the notes on the staff, including words split up over several notes.
The program costs $ 79.95. For more information, contact HollyWare Entertainment, 13464 Washington, Marina Del Rey, CA 90291, or call (310) 822-9200.
Graphics on non-PostScript printers. Graphics, as well as text, can be rotated on the page in one-degree increments.
You can even group graphics - Final Writer crosses the word processor line into desktop publishing territory in many respects.
That’s not to say the program skimps on word processing capabilities. Along with all the standard editing capabilities you'd expect as well as a high-quality spelling checker and thesaurus, Final Writer also sports sophisticated indexing capabilities.
Other professional features include Table of Contents Endnotes, Bibliography, and Outline generation. You can even create a Table of Illustrations for the graphics used in your document Smart hyphenation makes for professional-looking text, and sectioned documents with multiple master pages makes long-docu- ment publication easy on the Amiga for the first time.
If that wasn't enough, Final Writer also includes 120 high-quality PostScript outline fonts (it supports Compugraphic and NimbusQ fonts as well), 100 EPS cfip-art images, and 25 Arexx macros US upgrade pnees are $ 55 from Final Copy II Release 2. $ 65 from Final Copy II, S75 from Final Copy, and $ 100 Irom Pen Pal Contact distributor Gordon Harwood Computers for UK upgrade prices.

States Nothing's Final... You can't use Software this Powerful, and produce Documents this Good... Unless, you buy cm expensive PC or Macintosh™ a high priced Colour PostScript™ Laser Printer, and a complex, costly Desk Top Publishing Package.,, If you're looking for a quality Word Processor Publisher that performs as well as this, you may well start by searching through 1C and Apple™ Macintosh™ software catalogues.
Even then though, you probably won't find a program that will combine the very best in Word Processing and... easy to use integrated DTP type facilities.
You certainly can't find software for your Amiga that's capable of all this... E _ ¦ COMMENT When Kenneth Clarke made it clear that this autumn’s budget would include the imposition of VAT on magazine, book, and newspaper sales, the publishing business groaned as one.
When he later hinted that he wasn't in favour of the eight per cent middle tax rate, the groan became a wail of despair.
It doesn't take a maths professor to work out that 17,5 per cent VAT will hike the cover price of a double disk magazine by 80p, bringing the £5 computer magazine a step closer.
Ordinary single disk magazines, which currently sell for about £3.25, will increase in price to around £3,82, making them almost as expensive as double disk issues are today, and the effects of such stvingcing increases could be very damaging to the industry.
The Amiga enthusiast is a voracious reader, and surveys carried out by the major magazines have always confirmed that many of us buy two or three different titles a month.
However, this sort of broad reading habit will cost £1.60 more once VAT descends like a financial damp blanket, and if readers start to restrict themselves to fewer magazines, sales as a whole will feel the squeeze.
Whether you call it a tax on knowledge, sensible fiscal policy, or a desperate attempt to retrieve the £50 billion deficit from the man in the street, VAT on magazines is about to happen, and it won’t be good news for publishers or their readers Now this could just be the whinging of a group of profitable companies who are unwilling to do their bit to dig us out of our "awful hole", to quote one Cabinet minister, but as the Amiga industry as a whole depends on publicity to get the message about new products to the public, falling magazine sales could damage everyone.
In a worst case scenario, one or more of the smaller magazines might even wind up, a danger which particularly threatens the games-only titles. Pressure from consoles and the PC is one thing, but when it is aided and abetted by the Chancellor, things could get sticky.
The last audited circulation figures for the big three magazines - Amiga Computing, CU Amiga, and Amiga Format - showed healthy increases in sales (our own went up by 13%), confirming that the Amiga has made a come back thanks to the competitive price of the A1200 and the continuingly high standards in software.
When the market is on such an upswing after a lengthy recession, the prospect of its publicity being restricted by government taxes is an even more alarming one.
Things aren't all black, of course, and we at least don't have a magazine market which depends entirely on low prices for its sales. The PC shopping magazines, some as big as telephone directories, depend on very low cover prices and huge sales to keep readership up and draw in the advertising revenues. If VAT takes the price of such a The VATmanl cometh magazine closer to the point where it is no longer a cheap impulse buy or second purchase, it could lose ten per cent of its readership at a stroke, with a subsequent loss in advertising. Everyone will be taxed at the same rate, of course, but
the effects will depend upon each magazine's market position.
What is giving everyone in the publishing business a headache at the moment, though, is the fact that no one really knows what will happen next April when the price of the printed word rockets.
You, the reader, will suffer directly by paying more for your magazine, but in the long run a few benefits could come your way. A VAT-induced price rise, if it results in restricted sales, might prompt the major magazines to offer even more generous promotions than before, and we all know' what that means. Intense competition in the Amiga magazine market has led to the free distribution of superb commercial software worth, to date, hundreds of pound the cover mounting of useful books, such as seen on la«t month's AC, and a huge increase in the number of compit tions, reader offers, and other
inducements to part with £4 Not many readers would complain if this marketing war was to step up a notch and bring even better freebie* to the newsagent's shelves.
One definite opportunity next year will be your last chance to beat the tax by taking out a subscription ju : before fhe rise comes info force. At a stroke, any regular reader will be able to save 17.5 per cent, and probably a lot more, as we bung our usual subscription offers on top, so keep an eye open if you intend to buy Amiga Computing in 1994.

cartoons and digitised extravaganzas with Rombo’s Take 2
animation editor p- *m Uf% involving a couple of cartoon
characters running around against a backdrop such as Tom and
Jerry chasing each other around a kitchen, involves the user
in drawing all elements - To« Jerry, and the kitchen - into
each frame Take 2 is a combination of what is known as a “line
tester” and an animation editor, and is designed to be used in
conjunction with a paint package such as Dpaint or the Vidi
Amiga digitiser.
For all those millions of Amiga owners who have a copy of Dpaint and the thousands who took advantage of our Yidi Amiga offer earlier this year, Take 2 is the icing on the animation cake.
The program will either control Vidi Amiga directly allowing users to grab video or hand drawn images straight into its frame bank, or accept a series of frames from an animation package such as Dpaint. Then give the user total con* trol over the finished cartoon or movie.
Start by booting from the Take 2 CoverDisk (de-archiving won't work if you boot from another disk), then double click on the two icons it contains.
This will start a de-archiving process which will create two disks, one containing the Take 2 program, the other crammed with sound effects for use in animations.
Once Take 2 has de-archived, re-boot with the newly created disk and double click on the Take 2 program icon. When the program loads you will be looking at a blank screen made up of five main columns, one for the soundtrack and one each for the four levels of animation Sound Take 2 will control.
This screen is the exposure Sheet, or Xsheet. And is the central control room for all Take 2 functions. With four levels of animation, the user has huge flexibility. For example, a Dpaint animation Fusion Fusion Paint is a simple paint package lacking some of the advanced features found in Dpaint but it has a couple of very useful advantages. First of all it is faster than Dpaint for many operations, and secondly it can be used to edit or create icon images.
As usual, Fusion Paint is archived on disk, so boot from the Fusion Paint CoverDisk and double click on the Make Fusion icon. The de-archiving process will format a blank disk and unpack the Fusion archive onto it, and once it's finished you should boot from the new disk.
The first thing you'll see on starting Fusion Paint is a screen format requester which offers a variety of screen sizes and number of colours for your new' drawing. Choose one from the buttons on display or type a screen size into the string gadgets below, then click on start.
A blank screen will appear with the usual tool box down the right hand side. Most of the tools shown should be familiar as they are similar to the took found in any other paint package. One major difference, however, is that when some of the tools are clicked on, a number of optional tools appear in the area below the main tool box.
Experiment with Fusion’s drawing tools for a while. We won't be covering these in detail as they should be self- explanatory.
Let's concentrate instead on exploring Fusion's icon features. Hold down the right mouse button and choose the Open... Icon option from the Project menu.
Click once on the screen to tell Fusion where to place the Paint The fuilon disk contains some great fonts icon, then a file requester will appear. Now choose the Fusion Paint program file as your icon and load it up.
The icon will appear as two images, one which appears when the icon is first displayed, and one which is displayed when the icon is clicked on. This second image is known as the alternate image and should always be the right half of an icon image.
It is possible to load or save single icon images, and these are known as back-fill complement icons. This means that when clicked on the image simply fills in with another colour or changes to the complement colour depending on whether there is an outline around the image or not.
For now we'll stick to alternate icons as they are mctr fun, and create a little man who waves his hand when 6* icon is clicked. We'll need to draw a cartoon picture, so the I artistically challenged should either leave the room or mafcr sure no-one can come in half way through the tutorial.
Right, draw a head and shoulders picture of a perxr with upraised arm and a big cheesy grin. Fusion's freehare drawing tool should be all that's needed for this, though the circle tool could come in handy for the eyes and the zooea lens will be handy for small details.
Once thk image is finished, click on the cut brush tcx-i r has a pair of scissors on it) and cut around the little mar cut window will appear in the top left-hand comer shownt our brush, and if it meets with your approval, dick op r» Paste tool (it has a big brush on it).
OUTLINES Now paste the brush one pixel to the right of the ongraL taking care to make sure that the outlines of the two tm?*ss touch but don't overlap.
We now have two identical images and if we saved 4* icon immediately it would appear that nothing happenec when the icon was clicked on, so we have to make charts to the alternate (right-hand) image.
Try changing the position of the arm or the facial exj*®- sion until something approaching a reaction can be sees from one image to the next. So long as there's enough dine*- ence between the two images we'll know we've clsckec jc the icon, so feel free to indulge yourself. The zoom icts (magnifying glass tool) is particularly useful for this «r j detail work.

from the Project menu. To save the icon we must tell Fusion
where it a, so we must now draw a box around our waving man.
Make sure that the box is tight around both images with no space to spare, then click the left mouse button, at which point a file requester will appear.
There's no need to save your icon with the usual .info extension, as Fusion saves the image as an IFF brush and that brush as an icon for itself. If you save to the RAM disk, go back to Workbench for a quick look at your finished icon.
Another of Fusion's more advanced features is its use of text and fonts, and there are several superb fonts on the Fusion Paint CoverDisk. First, let's select a font by clicking on the Font gadget, which is denoted by two Fs.
Fusion will search the current fonts directory, which should be its own if you have booted from the Fusion disk, then present you with a list of those it has found. For now, choose the Camelot font and click on the disk icon in the lower right-hand comer of the tool box to load the font from disk.
Now that we have a font, click on the text tool (it has a large T on it) and you should see a string gadget appear on screen.
Type whatever text you require in here and press Return.
The text should appear on-screen and you can position it anywhere by clicking at the desired position or dragging it around with the left mouse button.
Once satisfied with the positioning, click on the checkmark box in the lower right of the screen to fix the text in place, at which point you should notice the next line of text is waiting below die first, neatly justified.
Fusion's third special talent is its ability to grab screens from any other package currently running. To do this, simply select the grab screen option from the main menu bar and confirm that you would like to proceed. Fusion will then wait ten seconds and grab whichever screen is presently being displayed.
All the user need do is set the grabbing process going, then flip to the screen to be grabbed using left Amiga-N or M and wait for two yellow flashes.
The first warns you that grabbing is about to take place, the second that it has finished, and when you flip back to Fusion, the screen should be loaded up ready for editing.
That's about all we have space for in these pages, but the remainder of Fusion's features need little introduction. The program works in much the same way as Dpaint and other paint packages, and if you have any real difficulties, there's a generous manual offer on a page not a million miles from here...

When the file requester appears, go into the Take 2 disk directory and click once on the arrowhit directory to highlight it. Then click on Load. Take 2 will scan the directory for scene information and any images the scene contains, then load the whole lot into memory.
The file requester stays on-screen in case the user wishes to load more than one set of files, so click on Cancel once disk access is complete and take a look at our new Xsheet. Levels one and two now show the images used in each frame of the animation, and the sound* track column is blank.
This tells us that there is a backdrop image called "background" and a second level containing no images until frame 13, then a series of files from an animation. We need to take a look at what we've loaded, so click on the Flipper button at the bottom of your screen.
What you should see is a simple black and white animation of an arrow hitting a tree, and the action will loop until you hit the right mouse button. Do this now and examine the Flipper control panel which appears over the animation.
CARTOON All controls function in the same way as their VCR equivalents, so users should be able to zip back and forward through the cartoon with little difficulty.
Above the VCR controls there are a number of information fields showing which frame of the animation we are currently on and which images are being shown in the different levels. We can use this information to decide exactly when tlte arrow hits the tree, at which point we'll add a sound effect.
Click on the single forward arrow to advance the animation one frame at a time until we get to frame 16. This is the point at which the arrow first hits the tree, so now we know where to start playing the sound effect.
Now click on Quit Flip to go back to the Xsheet. Hold down the right mouse button, and select Sample Panel from the Panels menu. A blank panel will appear which shows no files until we load one. So make sure that the window is active by clicking on the Samples title bar, then hold down that right button again.
A single menu appears enabling you to load. Save, or delete samples, so select load 8SVX (the Amiga's standard IFF sound sample format) and make sure the sounds disk we de-archived is in a spare floppy drive. If you have only one drive, swap disks before selecting load.
Choose the Sounds disk from the file requester, then the Effects drawer. A number of special effects samples should be on show, but we only need two - one for the arrow being fired, the other as it hits the tree.
Click once on the jump and spring samples to highlight them, then on load to add them to the samples list, and finally on Cancel to get rid of the requester.
Adding the effects to the animation is Simply a matter of clicking on the sample from the list shown in our sample panel (there should only be two), ther on the leftward pointing arrow on the right-hand side of the window.
The mouse pointer should now turr to a "To and we can add the sample bj clicking in the soundtrack column ner to the frame at which the effect starts tc play.
Follow this process to add the spring sample to the soundtrack at frame 16 then go back to flipper and watch the animation again. Sounds better, doesn it? Now what do we do with the jump sample?
You'll notice by looking at the soundtrack that each sample lasts for severs frames, and if we try to put the ner sample at. Say. Frame ten. The spring sample will be moved down to accon modate it. Moving it out of time with the visual event Of the arrow hitting the tree.
GADGETS At the top of the sample panel window there are four gadgets which represent the four soundtracks you can h*«e In any Take 2 animation. There's ontj enough room on the Xsheet window *: show one soundtrack column, but if we Click on the second gadget along notice that the title at the top of the soundtrack column changes to sounc- track2 and we have a blank column r which to insert the second sample.
Easy, eh? Now insert the jump sample anywhere before frame 13. Which s where the arrow first appears, then gc back to flipper for another look.
We now have a much more attractrve animation, but the two samples migK Magic Menu Author: Martin Korndorfer Do you get into a dither about drop downs? Are your pull downs a pain? Then you need a pop up menu system.
Pop up menu programs which replace the Workbench menus are nothing new and have been around for years now, but Magic Menu is one of the neatest and most attractive yet.
It runs as a Workbench 2 and upwards commodity f'titer from Workbench or through the WBStartup drawer, and patches Intuition to replace the menus of any system- legal program launched thereafter with its own much more glitzy offerings.
Once run, the program makes it possible to activate menus with a right mouse button click anywhere in the screen rather than having to move the mouse pointer to the menu bar. The menus will pop up (hence the name) right beside the mouse pointer, making it a faster and easier job to access them.
This sort of easy access can be a real boon when using a program which relies heavily on menus or if you're one of those users who can't be bothered to learn all those tricky keyboard short-cuts. For such users, Magic Menu offers a neat, stylish answer to all drop down dilemmas.
The program treats menus as two distinct types - pull down (the usual menu bar jobs) and pop up, offering the user a chance to configure how they work independently of each other.
When the right mouse button is held down while the pointer is in the menu bar, drop downs of the traditional sort are the result, but when held down anywhere else in the screen, pop ups appear. In this way, users can have their cake and eat it - pop ups for when they’re feeling bodacious, drop downs for those "back to momma" days.
There are three ways in which either type of menu can work - Standard, Press Once, and Select. Standard is the usual way of holding the right mouse button down all the time the menu is visible, then releasing it when the desired option is highlighted, but the other two modi operandi are just a teensy bit radical.
Press Once is a method whereby the right mouse button activates the menu, which will then stay on-screen after the button is released.
As the pointer is moved, options are highlighted as if the button was still depressed, and the user just taps the right squeaker once more to make his or her selection. This is a good method for those with lazy fingers and ion menus through which to browse.
Select is a little weird and works somewhat like t R menu in that the right mouse button calls the men-1 ai screen, then the left button is used to dick on the Oftm and sub-items. Not very trad, but good soul food for tr** who use Pcs at the office and need some serious aim bashing after a hard day's work.
To top of the bill of fare (pun definitely inlendci Magic Menu gives one the option to control mtum through the keyboard. Yes! Now you rodent haters a discard the little beasties for ever and just tap left-Ak a left-Amiga at the same time to open the menus, ther » the cursor keys to navigate around them.

• g the samples around by clicking with s»e left button on the
sample's high- jhted first frame, then holding the «ovse button
down and dragging the sample up and down the soundtrack. A Kit
of experimenting should see our samples safely in the correct
place.
Of course, you might try a couple of samples in a search for the best effect, and in this case, removing unwanted samples is easy. Just click on the sample s first highlighted frame on the soundtrack, then on the rightward pointing arrow on the sample panel.
To check a sample before inserting it in the soundtrack, highlight it by clicking on its name in the sample list, men click on the gadget at the top Users (an me the frame board to flip through animations right corner of the sample panel.
We'll now take a quick look at creating a scene from scratch. If you like, you can save the current scene complete with sound sample information using the Save... Scene option from the Xsheet menu.
Now choose New... Scene to clear the decks, then go to the panels menu and activate the pictures panel. Once the pictures panel appears, hold down the right mouse button and select load.JLBM. When the file requester appears, choose the pics directory from the Take 2 disk and click with the left mouse button on mrt, dragging it down to highlight all eight picture files.
Click on Load, then the Cancel button and we should be back at the pictures panel. To insert the images, click on the film strip gadget in the bottom right of the window to select all files, then on the black box with a white outline. Which tells Take 2 to paste the pictures to the currently active level.
We can now see the animation by using flipper again, and add an effect or two. If you have a footstep sample, perhaps on hard drive or among your sample library, this might be a good time to use it.
Adding a second level is easy. Load Dpaint and draw a simple road graphic which rolls into the background over an eight frame loop, stick a bush or lamp post in to give the illusion of movement, then save the eight frames in a directory on disk.
Make sure that the background is the same resolution as our example piccies (lo-res 320 x 256) as Take 2 won't mix pictures of different resolutions.
COLOURS This applies to colours as well, so you'll have to ensure that the road is a simple black-and-white test image. Take 2 is a line tester, as we've already mentioned, and is designed to help you try different animation ideas, then test them at the line drawing stage.
Levels show through each other as greyscale images, successive levels laying down on top of each other, so the furthest away level, or backdrop, should normally be in level one.
In next month's Amiga Computing we'll be looking at some of the more advanced uses of Take 2. So don't miss it. And why not check out our manual offer and buy a complete Take 2 manual and tutorial for next to nothing?

Ctrt-C will do the trick, just in case you're interested.
DropBox Author: Steve Anichini Yet another commodity program for Workbench 2 and above, DropBox is designed to take the drudge out of those boring household chores you have to do time and time again. You know - washing the dishes, de-archiving things, and the like.
By simply telling DropBox that any time a file is passed to it which has the suffix .lha (to take only one example), the faithful little chap can be programmed to carry out an automatic command, such as de-archiving the file and placing the contents in RAM, thus saving you a lot of that opening Shell and typing in the command sort of malarkey.
When run, DropBox leaves an icon on Workbench onto which any icon or file can be dropped (DropBox, geddit?). The hapless file will be ruthlessly rushed to the program, thoroughly interrogated, and dealt with contemptuously. Sort of a Workbench friendly neighbourhood Bobby, when you think about it.
For a demonstration, run the program then double click on the DropBox left out on your Workbench screen. This will bring up an interface with a list of presets on the right and a number of options on the left.
To begin with, the program looks in ENV: for its presets, but for the purposes of the CoverDisk we've had to put them in the DropBox drawer, so hold down the right mouse button and select open from the project menu. Load DropBox's prefs file and check it out.
The Lha entry, for example, tells DropBox that any File with the appender lha should be dearchived with RAM: as the destination drawer. To add another, click on the Add button and type PPShow in the string gadget.
We don't have to bother about a destination as we know PPShow will send its results to the screen as a picture, so type PPSHOW in the command gadget to tell old thickie which C: command to invoke, then type |COM) JSOURCE] in the template string.
DropBox always need this basic template to tell it to carry out the specified command on the source, or file which had been dropped onto it. Finally, use the pattern ?.iff and click on the output button. The program is now set up to use PPShow on any file with the suffix .iff. There are a thousand uses for this program, from viewing piccies and text, to launching Arexx macros, but you'll have to read the on-disk docs for a more detailed run down of the possibilities.

to provide what must be one of the most pointless computer

Just run the program and watch the window in the top right-hand corner of the screen as your mouse is moved, drool as those metres mount up.
Then swagger off down the pub to lean nonchalantly on the bar boasting about how you ran that rodent ragged.
There's a high score table to keep track of those marathon mouse marches, and the About function which you can access from a menu tells you how many miles you have travelled, what this is as a fraction of the earth's circumference, and your average speed in metres per hour. All totally hatstand. As I'm sure you'll agree.

Either got a device and a file mixed up or that you've typed a file name wrong, and suggest you check which directory you are in a try again. The program isn't an Army Miner Author: Alain Lafferiere Minesweeper is a game which has had many followers and I many clones, but they all follow the same format. A grid of I squares is littered with mines and you have to proceed to I uncover all the safe squares by the use of your tired noggin I If an uncovered square has mines in any of the adjacent j squares, it will show a number to tell you how many there are, and by working out the most probable
free squares : you gingerly tap with the left mouse button until you clear' the board or, as is more often the case, step on the wrong square and meet your bum on the way back down.
There are four levels of play: Beginner, Advanced. I Expert, and Custom, each differing from the others in the , size of grid to be cleared and the percentage of bombs on the grid.
An Undo button is available if you think you deserve another chance, and the game can be paused if you're playing against the clock and want to cheat, but otherwise this is just a very nicely presented version of an old favourite which, if you're an old fan of Danger UXB, you'll enjoy ; immensely.
Move Author: Kai Iske Workbench has always had a few missing bits here and there, but the one command Commodore have always left out for no apparent reason is a move command.
The author of this program got a little steamed up about it, and faced with the choice of either punching out every Commodore employee he could lay his hands on, or writing a move command of his own, he wisely chose the latter course. Move is a simple CLI command which does a simple job, but it does something that AmigaDOS normally makes a complete pain in the dan- gly bits. Use it with the simple parameter information found on the disk and you should have few problems.
For example, moving the move command from disk to your C: directory is a simple matter of typing: ROVE ROVE TO C: and there's no faffing around with copy, delete, or rename. Neat, eh?

Dll R «htS 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: COPT (directory} TO (neidisk) ALL where (directory) is the full pathname of the directory you wish to copy, and (newdisk) is the name of the disk and directory into which it will be copied.
For example, if you wanted to copy a utility called FRED from CoverDisk 27's Utilities drawer to a directory called FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: COPT COVEtlISK27:UTll!TUS mt TO VOIKBEinM ftD ALL Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory icon and drag it across to the new disk's window. This has the advantage of creating a new directory for you and copying the icon as well.
Once you have moved a particular program to where you require it you could experience some problems running the program. This is sometimes caused by the program not being able to find files which it needs to run.
A good example is the text files on the CoverDisk.
These have been crunched using PowerPacker, so when you try to copy them to another disk and then try to read them you can't unless you have also copied the Powerpacker library into your LIBS drawer.
How to make a backup ML Copying individual files 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 Wank disk to dearchive it onto.
Say we have archived a program called FRED. You simply double click on FRED's icon, and will be asked if you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to. Type "y" or "n" accordingly.
Your computer will then copy the archived file into its memory and ask you to insert your Wank disk. It will proceed to format the disk, and will then de-crunch the archived file onto your blank disk.
Once this has been done you can simply reboot your machine with the disk which contains the dearchived program on it and then use the program as instructed in the CoverDisk pages.
Note that if you have a Workbench 2 or upward machine you must boot with the CoverDisk write- enabled to perform the dearchiving process.
Workbench 3 If you have a Workbench 3 machine, don't worry - most if not all of the programs on the CoverDisk will work on your machines.
If the program is specifically designed to work with Workbench 3 then you may have to copy the program to your hard drive or Workbench disk using the process described earlier on this page.

WORD PROCESSORS Word i Final Copy 2 £69.95 Softwood lncr Gordon Harwood, lUew Street, Alfreton DE5 7BP Tel 0773 83678 Like all true American products, the 256 true colour Final Copy 2 attempts to make itself bigger and better than the rest. Hailed by its makers as the ultimate word processor and desktop publishing combo. Softwood Inc have certainly pulled a flashy, fast and solid if flawed piece of software out of the metaphorical bag.
When booted in. The user is faced with a plethora of the usual options plus the DTP drawing tools for generating ovals, boxes, graphs and frames. The latter features are not offered by any other package here other than its predecessor and stablemate Pen Pal.
Also included is the PC-aspinng viewing option which is vital for any DTP software. Click on it and the user is presented with a list of zoom m and out ratios which enable real precision in text and picture placement.
Final Copy 2 will read any IFF file which can then be manipulated, resized and cropped at a fast rate to suit the user's tastes (a rotation facility would have been useful).
Add the bonus of an excellent 256 true colour palette that can be displayed onscreen at any one time and Softwood Inc's latest AGA supported offering sounds unbeatable.
Alas, the old adage "all that glitters is not gold" is appropriate - FC2 is primarily a word pro- KindWords 3 £26.99 Activision, Sheraton House, Lower Road, Chorleywood WD3 5LH Facilities 8 S3 Speed 9 n Value for money 9 Facilities 6 Sum nm.tr* S Qttu Irunvns xcau*. TUtt, Hfcr*i dv«U *«»¦«¦»•, wt vc*«. Am. Aatw. Riocrt. Id*4i cessing package and while offering a healthy batch of WP features, there are a few omissions which leaves one wondering why they weren't included.
For starters, there is no show “invisibles" option which usually displays carriage returns, tabs and the like. Because of this, when text is converted into Ascii format, it'll be like walking up an 80 degree slope to clean up any formatting problems.
There is also no support for Adobe Type One and Agfa Compugraphic fonts.
Back this up with no list or index generator as featured in Wordworth v2 and you've got a typical example of “great potential but must try harder" Having said all this, when push comes to shove, Final Copy 2 is a good looking package with some powerful features to boot and provides the user with enough facilities to create an attractive business or home document.
Ease of use 7 The second contender for the crown is KindWords 3 from the Disc Company. If you're familiar with Amiga word processors, you may well remember the hammering its parent KindWords 2 received due to its slow. Bug*ridden performance.
When v3 popped up last year, it came as rather a surprise that the entire pro* gram had been rewritten by Digita International, the producers of Wordworth. As soon as it's booted in, you can see the striking similarity.
The Wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) front end is practically identical but has fewer options than Wordworth. Icons run down the left-hand side of the screen and include the standard array of tab markers, text alignment, line spacing, undo, typeface, colour controls and palette The pull down menus at the top yield a spelling checker, thesaurus and editing facilities. IFF pictures with a maximum of 16 colours can be placed anywhere on the page and manipulated into the desired position but this is not a DTP program so don't expect too much control when compared with the likes of Final Copy
2 One of the program's strongest points is the ease of use. While the manual may seem thin compared to the encyclopaedic bulk of the other titles reviewed here.
KindWords3 features a help option which details each function.
On the negative side, for users ot other packages such as Protext and ProWrite, documents cannot be loaded or saved from other sources, only in KW3 or Wordworth format - Ascii or IFF text. This coupled with the lack of PostScript support. Custom printer drivers, differing viewing ratios - it's a real pain doing any kind of layout work when you can't see the full result of your efforts up on screen, and others makes KindWords 3 a non-contender (or serious office use. However, it’s one ol the best in its pnee range.
Cynically, the package sometimes feels like nothing more than a cheap and cheerful version of Wordworth brought out to fill a gap in the low budget market but considering that it is half the price of its big brother, it does fulfil its goal admirably. It offers basic features with an easy to use. Friendly interface and is suitable lor beginners and home users alike.
Ease of use 8 WORD PROCESSORS!
Word processors were invented to do one thing - to put an end to that Cumbersome piece of equipment. The typewriter. To banish typing errors, to vanquish redoing an entire sheet because you change your
- nnd about a sentence structure, to halt the tide of frustration
at re lack of facilities and to shred once and for all the
amount of manhandling the whole process takes.
In Stepped computers to save the world from monotony and Tppex. To create a tool that would become more popular than its ProWrite 3.3 £54.95 Silica Systems, 1-4- The Mews, Hatherley Road, Sidcup Tel: 081-309 1111.
PwWfite 3.3 from New Horizon is the latest in the line of .grades which have been going on since the dawn of Amiga
* ord processing. This version has been tpcrifkally designed to
include AGA as wril as offering tweaks, enhancements
• ‘rth aesthetically and practically and all-round improvements
from the last Siting.
This package has always been a powerful word processor and as well as hav- ng all the features you'd expect, it has polities that most of the titles reviewed here can't offer.
Take the retain apply option - if you
- jve a format or style of text that you » mt used elsewhere in
your document, t s possible to retain the set up of a par-
¦ular block of text or word and simply apply it to another thus
saving time and Another excellent if ill-planned feature* is
the bookmark facility. If huge T- savs or lengthy reports are
the order of the day, ProWrite is able to lay a bookmark in the
text which by the click of a button an be recalled up on screen
wherever you are in the document.
The main problem with this is only being able to use one per document - a system of numbered or named bookmarks as used m Wordworth would improve and fulfil the potential that this option has.
The packages biggest let-down is picture placement. While saying that it supports AGA and 256 colours on-screen, the actual iet result is a rather messy dithered interpretation of the image; 256 colours and Ham8 may well be recognised by the computer crippled little brother ever was.
Whether you're a teacher typing a report or Stephen King keying in his latest epic, word processors have become part of many peoples lives.
In the beginning Amiga word processing packages were ill in comparison to the monsters found on the PC but over the last year, we've seen a steady influx of software that is beginning to really show off the Amiga's word crunching capabilities.
Here is a pick of some of the best... let the fight commence.
But if you actually want to see it in all its technicolour glory up on the screen then forget it.
Another limitation is speed both in manipulating and especially loading times. When compared to Final Copy 2, ProWrite positively drags its heels when booting an image in.
These misgivings aside, it offers enough flexibility and versatility to be ideal for home use. With full PostScript support, the user being able to set different headers and footers for odd and even pages, the ability to customise the function keys through macro and a spelling checker that checks as you type, ProWrite v3.3 is well worth taking a look at - especially with the recent price slash.

Find our which package is right for you £129.95 Softwood Europe, 0773 836781 From the same stable as Pen Pal and Final Copy 2, Final Writer is apparently, according to the manufacturers Softwood, the most comprehensive word processor with DTP capabilities to match ever produced on the Amiga.
You'll have to wait a while for our definitive review but fudging from appearances and the bundle of information that flew our way, it certainly seems to be a package worth waiting for.
Like Final Copy 2, Final Writer has DTP facilities but also rotate text and graphics option to make documents look the real business. Couple this with a host of powerful features from cutting, copying and pasting graphics to structured EPS clip art images supplied with the package and Final Writer looks like it could well be a winner. Stay tuned for more details... ¦ WORD PROCESSORS Wordworth v2 £129-99 Digita International Ltd, Black Horse House, Exmouth EX8 1J Tel: 0335 270273.
Wordworth v2 is a plush, solid and attractive word processor with an intelligent interface and a comprehensive well*designed manual.
This package is the most popular in the Amiga Computing offices due to its wide selection of facilities and clear layout. Digita International, the programmers, have always tried to incorporate easy on the eye displays and this is no different.
It features very basic DTP facilities such as the ability to place pictures and manipulate them, but has none of the drawing tools that its main rival Final Copy 2 boasts.
A page preview can be selected to see either facing pages, several or thumb nail size for multi page viewing. I wasn't convinced that the representations were particularly accurate and as with Pen Pal, graphics were certainly out of proportion on a full page preview.
Imported pictures range from not only AGA Ham8,256 and colour IFFs but also include ProDraw clip art. Encapsulated PostScript and the PC bitmap formats, PCX and BMP which none of the other packn Ease of use 9 ages can cater for.
Full colour AGA, HAM and IFF can be loaded through setting the screen preference in the Workbench which means those with hi-res monitors can word process in any resolution they want to.
The only drawback is that it still takes a long time to import large pictures and the program eats up memory like Final Copy 2 never did.
On the word processing side, it has Wysiwyg display and a large selection of features. The user is able to create indexes and lists. This is achieved through writing the text and highlighting the words that you wish to be stored in the list which are then transferred to be used later.
Among the literary options is the glossary. When chosen, the user is presented with a list of terms commonly used in letters, documents and the like. By clicking on one of them, it is placed on the page wherever the cursor is. This list can also be personalised and expanded to include your own fave catch phrase. Like ProVVrite 3.3, Wordworth also features a bookmark facility but improves on it by giving the user the option to insert as many as they need in a single document by simply naming each one.
If full PostScript support, 17 superb Agfa fonts and drivers for 140 individual printers in a professional operating package sound appealing, then Wordworth v2 is well worth taking a look at. Highly recommended Wiliam Vfcrdswrth was bom on 7th April, 1770, at Coctefowuth in Cutnbaland, England.

From the makers of Final Copy 2. Is the most user friendly and accessible of them all. It's ideally suited to for the absolute beginner wanting to create a reasonable document or database without becoming flustered and
frustrated due to technical instructions or unwieldy operation. The actual package is split up into two different sections - a basic word processor and a database creator for producing detailed information storage sheets.
On loading, the user is presented with a well laid-out work top which includes DTP drawing tools. With these, as with FC2, you are able to construct boxes, horizon ta: and vertical lines but not ovals.
Other facilities include edit, file controls, mail merge, a large font selection and so on. As far as the typeface option operates, it works well but it is not possible to customise your own sizes. This is made worse by the maximum point size only being 48 when, for a good solid title, 65 is often needed Another excellent feature that hasn't been implemented as well as it could have been is the full-page view. When selected, the user is shown a view of the whole page plus a window for close up work By using the magnifying glass pointer, it’s possible to select the part of a document you
wish to see in more detail.
This all works fine apart from the fact that the full-page view is nol whal you’ll s« on paper and is actually stretched horizontally out of proportion.
This makes it very difficult to get a precise idea on exactly how the docu looks without going through the hassle of printing it out and wasting paper.
Pen Pal does have some useful options such as locking up graphics so that user doesn't accidentally move a finely positioned picture or set of images.
Form making is another well implemented facility. By creating the basic S for the invoice or whatever it may be, all the user has to do is simply fill in the The database creator is simple to use and as with the word processing section Ascii-compatible. Through the generator. A database to suit your specific needs is created but for serious business use, this is not adequate With no special printer drivers or PostScript option. Pen Pal cannot really be seen as anything more than a good introduction title and a utility that can only really be used to any useful effect in the home.

FflH DBJVBW: by ¦FEATURE There's been a lot of furore in the Amiga press of late, talking about how the PAL version of the NewTek Video Toaster is here, and we don't have to wait any longer for broadcast video on the desktop.
While the Prime Image standards converter card which makes this so-called PAL Toaster possible is certainly A Solution, it's not The Solution.
Anyone with a full grasp of the facts will ignore the desperate ravings of Amiga users who trust a spec sheet more than the evidence of their own eyes.
OK, yes, the Video Toaster is the best peripheral ever produced for the Amiga, bar none. Why? Well, primarily because it got the Amiga sold to more non-Amiga users than anything else besides Scala, and it's the first Amiga application to become something of an industry standard for DTV.
When you climb up a rung you need better VCRs, and time base correctors to enable you to do live video mixing and other more tricky things.
Obviously some equipment can be hired initially, but the fact remains that you need it. But the cost of this outlay is offset by the initial cheapness of the Toaster itself, even cheaper of course if you already have the Amiga 2000 or 4000 to plug it into, which is more probable than not.
In a PAL environment however, this situation changes beyond recognition.
Instead of having to lay out for a single board, you have to add £1,200 each for a couple of standards converters, which makes casual purchase and use impossible.
This effectively doubles or triples the price to the consumer and ensures that But the main reason the Toaster is a cool piece of equipment is that it allows a user, in an NTSC environment at least, to cut and paste video about like a word processor or DTP program. Oh yes, of course provided you have a little bit of extra outboard gear.
The Video Toaster isn't just as good as one of its parts, it’s a whole environment.
Barking on about Lightwave all the time or talking only about Digital Video Effects is missing the point.
What pundits always fail to point out is that the unique success of the Video Toaster is based on its many entry levels.
Some people buy it simply for still 3D pictures, some for video captioning, some for 24-bit frame grabbing and painting.
None of these entry level uses for the Toaster require much outboard equipment, just a Toaster and a VCR or two.
625 lines Z 25 frames NTSC PAL PAI ond NTSC are W different that to convert betwen them costs many times as much OS the Video Toaster Itself, and the results are often far from satisfactory So you want a Video Toaster?
Well, here are the ways you can use a Video Toaster now and for real: ? You can run one if you have a job with an American company who are prepared to ship you a bunch ol NTSC video machines, monitors and cameras. You use the Toaster in a fully-NTSC environment and then edit and save your creations to tape.
Then you use an STD CON to transfer your work to PAL tape, or simply send your tapes in NTSC to the US for consumption.
If you want to use a Video Toaster like you can in the USA.
Then the only thing you can do is move to the USA. That is the only way you’ll get max quality out for minimum money in.
0You can use one if you have a lot of money to waste and don't really care about quality (nobody cares more about quality than someone with lots of money. I might add).
Even if all they wanted to do was render things up to the quality of Babylon 5 or SeaQuest DSV, they would be paying through the snout and then some for the privilege.
This means that the only people with enough dosh to lash out for a Toaster system would be the professional sector, and then quality would be the main issue.
Whereas the quality of the Toaster in an NTSC environment is easily good enough for broadcast, you wouldn’t stand a chance of doing anything for broadcast in PAL.
For a start, any TV or production company wouldn't accept a programme on anything less than Betacam SP, a professional video format which is very expensive and requires outboard TBCs and the like to ensure the quality is good.
Unless you have the outboard gear there's no point in going to SP. Your average UK independent production company would only just about afford this kind of technology, let alone your average technoweenie with a camcorder FRAMED The only place you'll really get away with a home-made tape on UK TV is You'iv Been Framed, and using a Toaster with an STD CON that's what you'll get - the quality of a home-made tape, not anything Desktop Broadcast Video.
The reason that the semi-pro video market in the UK isn’t as well developed is that vve don’t have the wealth of cable stations they have in the US.
These are outfits who operate on Hi8, and where anything is permissible as long as the quality of the tapes you get is vaguely watchable. Not being rude to US TV, but NTSC is a lower quality video standard, having less lines and therefore less physical resolution than UK PAL 5o content is king where quality lacks, as they say.
For the price, the Toaster is the best quality switcher you can buy, and gives you access to broadcast effects without all the expense of a full studio. That's the key, "without the expense".
Translate that into English, and you get the idea that although the Toaster is good enough for the NTSC (Never Twice tfafl Same Colour) standard, it's less •H acceptable (in professional terms) on PAL system anyway, regardless of wh the Prime Image STD CON board can del to it.
There's been a lot of hot air generates about the Prime Image STD CON card. ¦ isn't a transcoder, for a start, it’s a staofl dards converter. Although Prime Imapfl claim that it's a rock solid solution, arvfl that it's brand new, soon-to-be-patcnta* technology, it isn't going to be that good I Why? Well, to be brutal if it was th« good all the TV and broadcast maj would be alive with talk of it. What s„ I dards converters do is difficult and pre-l cessor intensive, and the technology to dfl it well is very expensive.
Even with very good standards coofl verters you are going to lose quality - thfll is an inescapable fact. The images ran look just about the same, but in motuM they judder, they jerk, they flop about Ioh dead Fish.
When you pan, the smooth pan *1 turned into a juddering mess. In short dJ standards converter route is an absoluM crock of poo. Why?
Imagine you have a frame of video, kj PAI a frame of PAL video so it is 625 lines al height. You want to put it into an TSCj device? Fine sir, we'll just trim 100 lauJ off the thing and it'll cram in there a Obviously the lines are not all off the b*| tom, no you have to whip them out mm reptitiously from every other line or so. I This is almost like de-interlacing al Amiga hi-res image. Try it yourself P aJ nicely detailed image in hi-res lace, prd*l ably with text in it. Now use Art Dept 2 to convert it into a plain hi-res p cnad Urgh.
OK, not only do you have less line* rJ you also have more frames in NTSC fei PAL you have a video signal which n at 50Hz, that’s two fields per frame 25 frames per second and 625 lines.
In NTSC you have a signal which naJ at 60Hz, which at the same two fiekb sJ frame you end up with 30 frames per ond, and 525 lines.
So going from PAL to NTSC xers ’mm 100 lines and gain five frames. Going erj NTSC to PAL gains you 100 line* aj loses five frames. Where do these . nJ and losses come from and go to?
In order to create a frame with 625 saJ from a frame with 525 you have to - w polate - that is, examine each line p-.vdM pixel and make a best guess about looks like spread over say five line* After that you have to lose the*, rtffl frames somewhere. In the old day* M used to do just that, lose a frame • once in a while, but of course it * a£ t| more subtle now, with the tr r- - J F EATU R E Twice less tl rms) o ss of w ird can genera can [ma DM Jtion,.
¦-paten te lat good, was th ast Vtiat st and pri logy to ( ards con- ility - thu ages mai n motion ibout like h pan if short, the absolute rideo. It's lest frames being blurred and That's one way. In reverse you go from a 625 line image down to X image, which means you have
* imrnvlate the other way.
Mi bunch of lines and figure out (in md vmei what they should look like if ¦w- «ere only one line. And don't forget r%tr * before you even think of moving m ‘t this stuff around using digital ¦ttcetocts.
In the Video Toaster with STD N you are doing this process both »r. m real time. It's bad enough doing ?•»» process one way and only after the
- rang stage, but both ways.
* dd to all these other problems little twist. The new Video
Toaster 4 It's a US peripheral and that's the way it'll stay ||
supplied with the Toaster 4000 system is a different board to
previous revisions.
Unless it's carefully tweaked and the little motherboard switches are precisely trimmed you can't get the machine to work, unless of course the signals it's getting are pure NTSC and nothing but.
Double tricky.
This has prevented a lot of magazines from reviewing the VT as they don't have the kind of equipment or knowledge that I and my video chums have access to, which is why I have a Video Toaster myself.
It’s not useful for very many things, and I have to keep installing and deinstalling it when I want to use it because it takes up so much room on disk. The Video Toaster is something you have to be very serious about before you commit yourself to it.
Basically you're getting the gist by now that the PAL Video Toaster isn't quite with us, as much as we would like it to be.
It is the coolest piece of hardware around, and it has a certain charisma which few other peripherals have, but it is a US only product and for the foresee- able future that is the way it ¦ will remain.

stated ore inc VAI. E&0F ¦MEMORY We A1200 owners, or those who
will be once the soot settles from Santa's exit up the chimney,
could be forgiven for thinking that 2Mb of RAM is enough for
just about anything.
After all. This is four times what the ongmal A500 sported, and Still double the amount found in the A500 Plus or A600 Why add more?
To a certain extent, this is fair comment. As 2Mb will suffice for any game you care to mention and a goodly number of more serious programs.
However, once a hard drive is added and the user boots from it then loads, say. A word processor using graphics in a document, the machine will slow down and eventually run out of memory Speed is affected because the 2Mb RAM in a basic A1200 is all chip RAM. The area to which the custom chips have direct access, and for program code this is the worst place to be.
TRAP DOOR To avoid clashes with the memory accesses of Alice and Lisa, programs need fast RAM. And that's where the machine’s trap door expansion slot comes in.
As the Christmas shopping spree looms nearer, Stevie Kennedy examines the RAM expansions on offer Like the older Amigas, the A1200 has a trap door on its underside which can be opened and used for peripherals without risk to the warRAM for one Power Computing PC1208 A big brother for the PC1204, Power’s latest RAM board offers similar features to its sibling but with added flexibility.
As RAM fits to this board in the form of SIMM modules, the user can choose to start with 1Mb RAM, then expand at a later date to 2Mb, 4Mb, or 8Mb, though this will times mean away the original SIMM The FPU option is again able, and if the board is initially bought with no FPU. The presence of two types of socket means that either type of FPU (pins on the outside or ranty. A 150-pin slot awaits a variety of devices, which now include RAM FPU boards, 68030 accelerators. And SCSI interfaces.
By adding even as little as 1Mb fast RAM. The A1200 can be allowed to breath easier and programs can be run outside the busy chip RAM area, freeing the Amiga to work smoother and faster, and this is the reason the A1200 expansion market has taken off.
After a while, if fitting or using a hard drive, buying more powerful software. Or moving into memory hungry areas of interest, the A1200 owner will be forced to expand, so let’s take a look at those options, pins below, basically) can be fitted. It is therefore easier to shop around looking for the cheapest 68882 from a chip supplier.
More flexible than the standard PC 1204.
This card is a belter bet for those with ambitions or the need to start with less and build up once the wallet recovers.
MEMORY ¦ Power Computing PC1204

- wasjre to remedy the A1200's lack of a r*e «eeper.
3uid quality is good, the solid PCB giv- n; an impression of reliability, and the
• should not conflict with peripherals «ae*ed to the PCMCIA port.
A m all, a cost-effective answer to :asc fast RAM problems, though respective buyers should note that there s x facility for adding extra RAM at a Microbotics MBX1200 The MBX1200 is a RAM and FPU combination much like the PC 1208 in that it utilises a SIMM socket for flexibility, enabling users to buy the board in 1Mb, 2Mb, 4Mb, or 8Mb configurations.
A co-processor socket provides expansion capabilities using the 68882, and with chips rated at up to 50Mhz, A1200 owners with productivity in mind should find enough elbow room here.
Build quality, in common with all Microbotics products, is superb, and the solid ruggedness of the card gives one the impression that it could almost survive being driven over by a car.
Dark green PCBs, surface mounted components, and an air of solidity give the Microbotics products a quality feel matched only by the PC 1208.
Blizzard 1200 4 The Blizzard board is the smallest around at the moment and benefits from a very compact design in which every chip save the FPU is surface mounted.
Eight 70ns DRAMs provide the memory boost, and a further 4Mb can be added by buying and clipping on the ADD4 module, which brings the board up to size with the others. A battery backed-up clock rounds of this neat little card with the neatest little rechargeable battery we've seen.
Maths co-processors, either 68881 or 68882, can be added and the board is rated at up to 40MHz, so with a possible 8Mb RAM and the faster co-processors, there’s a certain amount of upgradability, even though no SIMM slots are used.
The method of bunging an extra board on the end of the A1200 4 main PCB seems a little crude, and whether or not it will be as reliable as a SIMM socket is debatable. Keeping down the initial cost as it does, the method makes the Blizzard a good buy, though, and the extra 4Mb RAM is cheap at £159.
A4000 options Owners of the premier Amiga have probably the least choice of all, but this is amply compensated for by the simplest and most economic route to extra RAM. The A4000 motherboard can accept extra SIMMs up to a maximum of 16Mb in its four fast RAM slots, and this should be enough for most users.
Over and above this total, those with heavy memory requirements - such as those driving a flatbed scanner, or indulging in a great deal of graphics work - have only one option at present.
American company DKB will shortly release their Zorro III RAM board, capable of holding 128Mb of RAM using 16Mb SIMMs, and though the fully-populated board will no doubt be extremely expensive, it is the only choice for those in the high end of the market who need a great deal of memory.
For pricing details and availability of the DKB board, phone Silica Systems on 081-309 1111 Chip us fast The Amiga has two types of memory: Chip RAM and fast RAM. The former was designed as an area of memory to which the custom chips, Denise and Agnus to start with, Lisa and Alice on the new machines, can read and write data directly.
For this reason, when chip RAM starts to run low. Programs such as Dpaint start to complain that they don't have enough memory to open a particular screen, and so on. The advent of the 2Mb chip RAM Amigas, with twice as much memory for graphics and sound, was a blessing to all.
Unfortunately, chip RAM is not the ideal place for program code to reside, and there are two main reasons. First of all, the custom chips will run out of chip RAM a lot faster if it is cluttered up with programs, and secondly the programs themselves will not run as quickly.
Competition with the custom chips for access to RAM is bad enough for speed, but when the programs themselves rob Alice and Lisa of RAM, they slow themselves down as well, and we're caught in a catch-22. The only way out of this vicious circle is to add fast RAM.
This extra memory cannot be directly accessed by the custom chips and is organised such that programs run at their best speed. In effect, a bit of fast RAM is the simplest and cheapest accelerator money can buy DM EMORY Another cheap 4Mb Card, the Turbotech is more or less identical to Power's PC1204 with the important omission of an FPU option.
Consisting of eight 70ns ZIP chips and a battery backed-up dock, this is a no-nonsense card aimed at the home user with simple requirements for memory expansion and nothing else.
The Turbotech A41200 is built well, with the usual predominance of surface mounted components, and behaves well in use. So should render adequate service tor the com* puter's lifetime.
As far as speeding up the Amiga is concerned. Turbotech's lack of a co-processor leaves it firmly anchored to the bottom of the markei, but the addition of fast RAM will always give a machine regardless of extra chippery Even as little as MBX1200z This is a later version of the MBX1200. Offering exactly the same specifications with the addition of a battery backed-up clock IVIicrobotics 1Mb fast RAM can let the A1200 breath a lot easier Tfcirbotech A41200 Breath easy Any Amiga working on a diet exd» sively of chip RAM will suffer from i memory bottleneck which w:; inevitably lead to a slow
down in ope* ation.
Without the fast RAM in which t: run, programs will compete with grap*- ics and sound data for space, and r« system will start to drag its feet.
With fast RAM added, everythin; becomes a great deal easier, and thi program code has a space of its own which to roam while the custom chipt get on with the job of messing aba.- with the data in chip RAM.
This is a rather simplistic picture but the point is that chip RAM i designed to be used directly by thi custom chips, and is where data sur as sound and graphics are stored, anc where screens are buffered or drawn ¦ the background and so on.
To shove program code in with tha lot is asking for trouble, and that’s most manufacturers claim that thor RAM expansions will give you anythin from 100 per cent to 300 per ee*: speed boosts. In effect, the most oto*- OUS change users will see is ths Workbench and other productive packages run more smoothly. Gama shouldn't be affected as most n designed with unexpanded Amigas r mind.
Even 1Mb of fast RAM would make • big difference to the smooth running j an A1200, and 2Mb should be enou9 to allow paint packages and oth*- memory-hungry programs to run froa hard drive without constantly runnn| out of chip RAM.
The norm seems to be 4Mb thew days, but this can be expensive users are advised to take a close at the expansion boards which ha* variety of configurations.
Price hike Earlier this summer, a duo of natural disasters conspired to nobble the RAM chip industry and boost prices well above the lows to which they had sunk early In 1993.
In Japan, a fire at one chip factory and an earthquake near another temporarily forced chip prices up and provided the excuse the industry needed to keep them there.
PC box-shifters. Struggling on tiny margins, and manufacturers of all kinds can make more profit on more expensive RAM chips, so it is unlikely that prices will fall very quickly even after the immediate shortage. Competition will inevitably drive them down, but it might be summer 1994 before we see real price cuts.
For the moment, then, A1200 owners with need for fast RAM but no burning requirement as yet for huge wads of the stuff would be advised to buy one of the slightly more expensive boards which offer 1Mb and 2Mb options and wait until RAM prices come down again before investing in a 4Mb SIMM.
None of the simple RAM and FPU cards have two SIMM slots, but some of the 68030 accelerators do.
And this makes life much easier.
For example, owners of the GVP A1230 might opt to buy the card with a 2Mb SIMM, then add another 2Mb SIMM for a total of 4Mb without having to throw away or sell the original SIMM.
Potential upgraders with single slot cards should bear in mind that the original SIMM will have to be sold, traded in, or discarded when bumping up the memory, so a word with the suppliers on whether or not a trade in option exists is essential.

Before you rush out. Cash in hand, there are a few basic points
you should consider: Do I need anything else?
Got a copy of HD-Backup or Quarterback Tools - which was given away with our December issue. In addition invest in some form of directory manager such as SID II or Directory Opus - good file management is an essential part of owning any hard disk.
Which type of hard disk do I need?
In the case of an Amiga 1200 you'll require a 2.5in IDE drive which has been approved for use with the machine.
Is there are major difference between the various models on the market?
HOW Although some appear faster than others during benchmark tests the actual speed difference is minute during normal operations.
What size drive should I get?
Probably the best way to deode on a size is to add up all the software you'd like to install and then pick the next size up from that - under no circumstances consider anything loss than a 40Mb drive.
If up until now your computing career has been spent on a floppy- based system, the appeal of a hard disk may not be that great. After all what's the big deal, so they're faster and a bit more convenient than a floppy - hardly worth spending hundreds of pounds on, right?
Fit an A120 If you’re contemplating a hard disk for your A1200, read on as AC points out the do's and don’ts of installation Wrong. After just a few minutes exposure to a hard disk you'll grimace at the prospect of rebooting with a floppy. The difference is akin to that between walking and driving a car - with the relatively large investment being outweighed by vastly improved performance right across the board.
Before you start unscrewing your A1200 please bear in mind that if your machine is still within its warranty it will be invalidated by adding a hard disk under your own steam.
As a Consequence, the following procedure is best attempted on machines which are over a year old. This isn't to say the process is difficult, in fact the A1200 is probably the easiest of all the Amiga range to upgrade.
However, if a Commodore engineer spots that a new machine has been opened for whatever reason you'll be out in the cold - end of story. Even if the problem has nothing to do the installation of the hard disk the end result will remain the same, and you'll be forced to pay for any subsequent repairs.
Now before wielding a screwdriver please read the following instructions very carefully and do not proceed unless you're completely sure of what you're doing. At this point it must be stressed Amiga Computing will not be held reason4 able for any damage to you or your machine.
First disconnect everything from the machine, paying special attention to the power supply. Under circumstances attempt any maintenance while the machine is plugged in.
Now flip the machine over and undo the screws which hold the casing together, then slice open the warranty seals - there's no going back now.... Hold the machine together and carefully turn the machine right-side up.
You should now be able to remove the lid revealing the hard drive cradle within.
You may notice that the top of the casing presses against the casing - this is normal and is done to keep the drive from sliding around inside the machine.
At this point go the kitchen, make a coffee and return to the table with; the coffee, a small crosshead screwdriver and one IDE drive - complete with connecting cable.
1110 coffee is to calm your nerves - feel free to increase the dose as necessary.
Now please be careful and take your time to follow these instructions to the letter:
• Now simply replace the keyboard and reassemble the machine.
Believe it or not the physical installation is now complete, it's literally that simple. Now it's time to move on to the preparation and partitioning of the drive.
If you're not familiar with hard disks partitioning the process can be a rather I confusing. However in reality it's a fairly | straightforward procedure which simple I slices the disk into several user defined I portions.
You may well ask why bother? Well I there are some advantages involved in I partitioning. Firstly you can impress your I friends by pretending to have more hard I disks than you've actually got!
But perhaps more import is the safety i mi mi ii_n iiiii ii.nmimm TUTORI ALI on the button marked Screen 2 Partitioning.
At this point define the size of your partitions and return to screen 1. Now write the Rigid Disk Block and save a copy of the mountfile prior to quitting the package. Your new hard disk will appear on the Workbench screen as something like DHO:NDOS, Dhl:NDOS and so on... This simply means that the drive is on-line but as yet not formatted. To format the drive click once on its disk icon and select format from the pull-down menu.
The usual requester will now appear for naming the drive and selecting whether or not to have a Trashcan.
Before clicking on format ensure that Fast File System is activated. Simply repeat this process for each partition on your system At this point you'll be happy to know the process is almost complete - all that remains is to copy Workbench onto the drive.
To do this, reboot the machine using a copy of your original Workbench disk and copying all the necessary files to your system partition. To do this open a Shell window and type in the following line: copy dfO;l? Cdnvt nut;] all clone Now simply repeat the process for each disk supplied with the machine and all will be installed. After you've done this for each disk make sure that dfO; is empty and warm re-boot the machine. If all is well your machine will now bootup from the hard disk and you're in business. Have fun... Step three: locate the hard drive cradle, take It out, and bolt the
hard drive to It using the bolts whkh your dealer should Hare supplied.
Remember to treat the drive unit with care drive for ut impress your friends by pretending to have more hard disks than you've got!
Choice opt for the RDPrep software give away as this is by far the simplest method of propping a drive.
First boot the CoverDisk and run the RDPrep software - take a look at the disk pages and readme file if you're a bit nervous. The software will now automatically search for a standard Commodore SCSI device, at which point your new drive should bo located and its name pop up.
Although both HDTooIbox and RDPrep apparently think your new drive is a SCSI, in fact it's just pretending to be so, to make life simpler for itself and mildly confusing for you.
Anyway, leaving the idiosyncrasies of the installers aside the drive should be spotted and will appear in the RDPrep screen. Now simply select it and click llllll ll IIIII ll llllllllllll o o o o a » o iiill

the ive, iisb ther airly nple ned Veil i in our ard fely Step
four: connect the drive ribbon cable and re teat the cradle,
then screw down the casing and boot with your prepplng software
I If the unthinkable happens and w hard disk crashes, a
partitioned drive I r'.y lose the data from one of its com- I
partitions.
Ki a result you'll only need to for- ur recover re-install one section of the r r In addition smaller partitions are ttjc taster, so it's possible you could ? A slight reduction in access time - rver it's pretty unlikely.
The down side, heavily partitioned ? can be a real pain to maintain. In | tr early days lots of partitions can seem . ;reat idea but when space starts to light you could rue the day you mad with partitioning software.
Suddenly even relatively small files
* r't fit onto the drive - even though am* may be lots of space
left when all free partition space is added ugrther.
AMAZING A particularly painful mistake is to t-jhc DHO: - otherwise known as the !em disk - too small. If this happens
• •* amazing how soon you'll face ¦vquesters which read cannot
copy fonts,
* raries or in fact anything else that
- rwly installed software has a habit of
* iding to DHO.
At this point there's no alternative but ¦ start moving vital directories around ?u system, using the Assign command bring order to the partitioning madam you've created.
In short, don't be tempted to over partition and never make your system disk too small. On a 40Mb drive make the DHO: partition at least 10Mb.
Assuming the machine is firmly screwed together - complete with mouse, monitors and all other essential peripherals - it's time to reboot the machine using either the HDTooIbox disk or the Amiga Computing December CoverDisk featuring RDPrep.

I would like to l» 0 warn
people out there that computing can 7W iy wreck lives.
'.U ff I've been married tor three and a half 1 l years to a wonderful lady, and we have two V 4 great kids. My addiction to programming and games playing has helped me to lose all that.
Although the time spent on my computer went more. Unless the price is right. Video CD will go the same way as Betamax.
Paul Matthews, St Leonards on Sea Your concerns are those shared by thousands of game-playing Amiga owners, but they will probably remain unfounded. The vast spaces available on CD-ROM discs offer artists more flexibility, not less.
For example, the Sony corporation recently bought more than 100 Silicon Graphics toork- stations which, we believe, will be used to produce original 3D rendered cartoons and intro scenes fir games.
Many of Ihe larger software houses, Ocean included, have fotloioed suit, and the result of this huge increase in graphics throughput and the benefits of the CD medium will be even more stunning intros of the type for which Psygnosis are already famous.
If anything, this explosion in the amount of space available to artists will result in more leeway for graphical excellence rather than less. Check out the intro to Ihe latest CD32 release of fames Pond if you don't believe me.
As fir advertisements which we are forced to watch through, can you imagine any company being so stupid as to force an unwilling audience to sit through three minutes of advertising?
We are already familiar with game intro screens proudly touting the name of the suppliers, and ten minutes of trailers on most rented videos, yet we don't complain about those and don't have to watch them if we don't want to.
The most probable outcome is that videostyle ads will appear on CD32 discs fir games to be released, but even so, most game players will welcome a chance to see the game in action rather than trust to a magazine review.
How many of us fist forward through the pre-movie trailers on a rented video until ioe spot a film we are interested in, that stop and play that particular trailer?
Your concerns about vast digitised games are shared by many, but we won't see games in this format for a while, and Ihe games companies will never attempt to sell something which proves unpopular in any case.
Digitised sequences will be used as intros or cut scenes and are unlikely to appear as part of the interactive gameplay. Quite apart from anything else, digitised human action will lay a game open to the film classification regulations. F Again, worries that 600Mb of CD space will be taken up mostly by ads and such are likely to remain just worries. No matter how much graphical nonsense surrounds a game, the software houses know that a bad game, no matter how well packaged, is a waste of ?
Imot so big bang disagree with some of the points made
- the article "CD Big Bang" in the 'wember issue.
Firstly you say you look forward to re time when games will no longer have neap looking tiny sprites", but massive gitised action sequences. I do not see ris as in any way a step forward.
The fantastic artwork we see on some cames now could be lost as artists are rushed out by anybody with a video recorder and a digitiser. This type of animation is currently used heavily in tedious and dull beat- em-ups.
If digitising from video to game rvcomes the norm, does this mean we
* ill never see a game which isn't first a aim? Most of the
classic games have nothing to do with film tie-ins Populous,
Civilisations, Chaos Engine, and so on).
Secondly, you say the advent of CD means that we can look forward to the came being bundled with film previews, re-ins, 0898 competitions, special offers, and so on. Personally, I would be more than peeved to buy a CD to find out that Game fix In issue 63. J Farrar complained about Microprose B17 and Virgin s Shuttle not working on his GVP A530.1 too experienced problems in running those programs from my A530.
The solution to this crisis was as simple as it was effective. Programs like these overrun the Amiga's operating system but seem unable to allocate Ihe memory they need to run.
What I found out was that I should let the Amiga set aside the memory by stacking the program to at least 50 per cent more than the program sire.
As an example, using icon information from Workbench shows that 817 is 320,000 bytes In size. Change the stack size from the default 4,096 to 480,000 bytes, save the setting, and that's it!
Jon Hemfjell. Maze. Norway Thanks, Jon. All tips aimed at helping readers with specific problems are gratefully received. All you sim buffs out there with accelerators and problems with your games now have another trick to try when getting them to run.
Of course, if the games companies programmed their games properly in the first place, we wouldn't have to print bug fires, would we?
¦ LETTE RS resources What is more likely is that good games U'tll be further enhanced by the addition of cinematographic cut scenes, intros, outros, and so on.
If you think this prospect is a bad one, then you are a traditional gamer with a capital T and in a very small minority.
Wrong end of the stick I'm afraid you have vastly overrated the CD32. ACA makes no sense in a games machine today.
I was quite horrified to see Oscar running on it. All enemy objects stuttered along at 25 frames per second. This is not on! They were tiny! How is CD32 going to cope with large beat-'em-up characters? It can't compete with 5NES or the Mega Drive if it can't move better quality images at the same rate - 50Hz.
AGA is a compromise, retaining bit- planes for backward compatibility, vital for a computer but not for a console.
It needs new software! This was an opportunity to introduce a true step forward by switching to byte-per-pixel graphics.
This is the most elegant and efficient way of doing graphics. You get a big increase in flexibility once the units dealt with by processor and RAM are equated to the abstractions of graphics algorithms.
Forget endless bit-masking and shifting. This helps image processing, art packages, colour DTP, real time 3D game environments, and 2D sprite drawing.
Got something to say through the pages of AC?

Conversion will still take an entire video frame of precious processor time, so don't expect to see 3 D at high frame rates. 1 doubt it will match the speed of
Mega CD's 3D hardware sprites as demonstrated in Thunderhawk.
The Amiga is supposedly a graphics machine, but it has a slow bitmap, and this is why it is dying. When will this be rectified with true DMA-to-video read-out?
Can Commodore survive long enough, ms dSHM?

Attractions will include trade stands, software demonstrations, and hardware displays.
In a rare and much needed display Of computing for the less fortunate, a Special Needs User Group stand will be offering help on how this area Of computing can be aided.
Further details are available from Bob Lang on 0492 530594 and aren't Amiga games now committed to the idea of running screen conversions?
No name supplied Answer number one: The Amiga is not dying.
It is still the best selling home computer in Britain, End of false rumour.
Ansuvr number two: How many misconceptions about the games industry can one cram into a single letter? True, the PC and consoles have certain advantages over the Amiga, but have you really looked at the games scene oi er the past year?
A healthy games industry is one in winch good programmers can be found releasing games based upon original ideas, improving existing games, or just selling buckei-loads.
Diggers, Flashback, Hired Guns, and Syndicate, all of which originated on the Amiga, are ample testament to an industry which still has a large audience, lots of ideas, and plenty of development left in it.
Consoles can be discounted. They are a fine form of entertainment, but the only games available for them betray their incredible dependence on the very young games playing population, and the games amiable are of a very uniform caste.
As for your assertion that the Amiga cannot offer beat-em-ups to rival the Mega Drive, can I just mention Body Blows and invite you to compare it to Street Fighter 2?
Keep an eye on Body Blows 2, soon to appear as a special version for the CD32. Then tell me how slow Amiga games are. You slag off Oscar for its "slow" 25 frames per second movement, but by comparing this to 50H:, a screen refresh speed rather than a pixel move- ment speed, you confuse the issue.
Oscar is as smooth, if not smoother than, the majority of console games, costs less, and uses more colours on screen. As this if the first platform game of its kind on CD32 format, we can only expect the genre to improve rapidly.
You also seem far too willing to put down CD32's ability to convert and use byte-per- pixel graphics and use them in a smooth game-playing environment.
The software houses who actually make rather than talk about the games toe play have universally welcomed the planar chip, and until uv see a game which utilises this sort of PC-to-Amiga graphics conversion, it would Iv churlish and over-cynical lo doubt its potential.
Yes, in today's game-playing world. I he Amiga's bit plain’ graphics have certain historical disadvantages, but had Commodore released a machine with absolutely no compatibility with existing software, we uvuld have received thousands of letters of complaint.
Far better, don't you agree, to offer the best of both worlds by retaining compatibility yet making it easier lo software houses to use PC graphics?
Finally, to hold up MegaCD as a standard by which any games machine can be judged is ludicrous. MegaCD has been slaled by (he most important people in the games industry, the buying public, who hair taken one good look and left it weII alone.
With its dated 16-bit graphics, high price tag, lousy sound, and two year old game scenarios. MegaCD is about as likely to surviiY as a badlu wounded turkey in a Butch Cassidy- style shoot-out on Christmas Eve.
It icould be silly to predict that CD32 is going to sell a million units in its first year, but by the same token it would be foolish and cynical lo deny Commodore's exciting new machine a fno months to prove itself.
Light fingers It's not very often I resort to your pages, but I feel I must protest in this case. We are all familiar with software piracy and other types of computer crime, but every month when I pop down to my newsagent I see another type of crime being committed.
I am talking about the stealing of magazine CovarDbks. How many times have you seen your favourite magazine on the shelf without a disk? This type of behaviour is simply not acceptable in a community where people have enough problems a la piracy.
Not only does this crime put potential readers off from buying the magazine, but it also gives the shop owner a good reason for not stocking it. I have now placed an order at my newsagent to save me galavanting around town looking for a copy.
Finally, can you reprint the address you gave for a supplier of Bengali fonts a while back?
Abdul, Hailsham We're as annoyed as you are that people pilfer Cover Disks front magazines while they're on the shelf, but there's not much we can do about it.
The only solution would be to shrink-urap the whole magazine with the disk in the middle, but as this uvuld stop readers from carrying out the essential Saturday morning browse Extra drives Having just purchased a secon drive for my trusty A500, I was alarmed to find that one of my be* games, Zool. Did not support it!
I feel that hard drive support is ar optional bonus, since hard drives art relatively new to the Amiga as starv dard, but many users have had extr* drives since way back.
Companies should support at leas: extra floppy drives! Come on, people let's get with the program.
John Gibbs, Yanbu, Saudi Arabu We are in complete agreement. Since about 1989, AC has considered its average reader to be someone with an A500, probably expanded to 1Mb with an extra floppy drive.
Lately, with the resurgence in hare drive popularity and 2Mb Amigas that theoretical average equipmen- level has risen, but a games compan) releasing a game In 1993 which doesn t recognise a three year-olc standard is doing us no favours.
It is a step we do not utant to take.
If you get your local newsagent to stock the magazine, you can guarantee it will be either below or behind the counter where prospectrtY thieves can't reach it. Big high street newsagents are great for range of choice and convenience, but it is this sort of store which is most prone to disk-nickers, The company we quoted as a supplier of Bengali fonts has since gone very quiet and we no longer know if it is still in business, sc here's an Ezra plea: can someone please let us know of a reliable supplier of ScalaMe ethnic typefaces? There's an expectant market out there!
Pet hate I hate hard drives, or at least the unstable variety.
Three days ago, I was near the end of i 50,(XX) word story* when my hard drive, after two years of faithful service, popped its clogs, shuffled off this mortal coil, and generally expired, Repeated attempts at resuscitation through the good offices of DiskSalv retrieved some files and data, but the majority were lost and after six hours of armed struggle I was forced to raise the white flag and format the bastard.
All I have left of my 50,000 words are a few pages of print out (barely 5,000 words' worth), and an early file of the first chapter.
As I said, 1 curse all hard drives to the ninth circle of hell and back. OK, so 1 should have backed the damn thing up, but last time I did that using Quarterback 4.0, the eighth floppy in a series of over thirty developed a read write error, thus rendering the backup useless.

the Primera will make up to four passes over the specially
treated A4 thermal transfer paper or transparency film.
Prepare to drool as Paul Austin provides an exclusive look at the latest in colour printing technology In order to achieve this the four colours - cyan, magenta, yellow and black - are laid line-astem wrapping around the source roller connecting as a constant sheet to the take-up roller.
SPOOLS To load the printer you simply place the source and take-up spools into position on the removable cartridge, which then drops directly into a large bay area which dominates the middle of the printer.
For those planning to alternate between colour and mono ribbons Fargo will supply a spare cartridge, so swapping formats will simply mean popping the lid, removing and replacing with the spare.
Assuming your paper is loaded and the printer is powered and on-line, you’re ready to print. As for the two examples, ADPro TruePrint 24 was used for the portrait while Final Copy provided the spoof proof of Miss Pfieffer.
However it must be stressed neither of the two packages are essential, as any program capable of using preferences can take advantage of the Primera thanks to a custom driver which comes as part of the package.
Although compressing an image from A4 to the size you see invariably improves the overall look, the full scale output is easily the best colour hard copy yet available for the Amiga.
The question is: How much are you willing to invest to enjoy the glossy output it provides? First there's the cost of the printer itself, add the ribbons and of course the special paper or transparency film and the Primera falls squarely into the pro market.
At present the Primera is limited to 203dpi with its existing Amiga driver.
However a photo-realistic kit is already available for the Mac and PC which quite literally does as its name suggests.
Unfortunately the Amiga driver is still in development, but rest assured as soon as the Amiga version arrives it will be thoroughly tested in Amiga Uffdate.
As you may have noticed, I’m very impressed by the Primera. The output is excellent and reasonably quick at around two minutes a page, and the registration of the component colours is again excellent.
My only concern is that this could degrade with prolonged use.
In short, for those who don't actually make money from their artistic exploits the Primera is just a tad too expensive. Having said that, if you can envisage recouping your investment in the form of T-shirts, projector slides or framed 24-bits, the Primera is the latest "must have" dream machine for any Amiga artisan.

Overall: 9 ¦GRAPHICS It seems that everywhere you turn thes edays a new low cost 24-bit card is popping out of the hot little oven of graphics development. As profes-' Monal users demand a better true 24-bit display from their machines and find that AGA does not meet all their needs, a succession of manufacturers have attempted to fill the gap with cheap cards that do just about anything.
Piccolo is the latest to boast retar- getable graphics (RTG), Workbench emulation, and a bundled paint package, but this time there's a bit more to the act.
Among other things. Piccolo offers its own on-board blitter, and the software supplied free with the package is superb.
Sitting on a Zorro card. Piccolo will automatically sense whether it is in a Zorro II (A1500 2000) or Zorro 111 (A3000 4000) slot and change its mode of operation accordingly, so it is compatible with any of the larger Amigas and works well with all of them. In what is fast becoming a standard display technique, video signals are fed from the Amiga to the board, then passed on to the monitor.
This method allows for a simple passthrough when the board is not being used and makes possible a pain-free single monitor set-up. In addition, though, it has the much more pleasing result of making the board transparent to the user, and after only half an hour one could be forgiven for forgetting there was a card in there at all.
Software is supplied on four disks and includes a wealth of high quality material.
The EGS libraries and utilities form the main system software and enable Piccolo to function, and two paint packages top off the bill. Installation is painless, and the novice should find little to worry about.
My only concern here is with the EGS libraries. These are crucial to the operation of any board which uses them for RTG or intuition support, and having encountered them several times over the past couple of months, I've been less than impressed on occasion with their reliabil- ity. Viona Development bug-fix and upgrade the libraries constantly, and the latest release is much more stable than the first software we saw at AC, but there are still problems. On installation, EGS refused to function on the A1500, but when Piccolo and its software were transferred to the A4QQ0 everything worked
fine.
Lines is left behind or a wave of comjl tion makes it difficult to see what's gcoJ on in detail. The program is still usjm and redrawing the screen using Amiga* forces a refresh to get rid of the coma tion, but it comes back with ever)’ subJ PROMISING Inconsistencies of this kind are a bane and exactly the sort of thing to kill a piece of hardware or software before it has a chance to develop. If this happened to EGS it would be a great pity, because EGS not only promises compatibility across a number of graphics cards, but a smooth and pleasurable working environment.
TV star The second paint program bunc with Piccolo is the EGS version TVPalnt jr. A tried and tested packa with a name for reliability and pov The Junior version is not so muc- cut down TVPaint as an older vers without the advanced features foe in TVPaint 2.
Most surprising of all, conslde that this is supposed to be a buc: or bundled version, is that the at channel works perfectly. This is : of TVPaints most useful and po* ful features, and provides a 256-te linear keying process between Images using a greyscale mask Using the alpha channel, ima; can be made to fade In and gradually as the transparency of * mask changes with the greysc.
Used, and entire spare pages car turned into an alpha char- for superb image compos- results.
Most of the original TV Paint s Apart from the initial hiccup with the A1500, Piccolo's software was stable during most of the test with the exception of Workbench emulation, which will have to be worked on. Many programs refused to work under EGS, and some even caused a crash.
In particular, the retargeting utility found problems with packages which open more than one screen at the same time under different resolutions.
ADPro and ImageFX were prime offenders, the former bombing out when a preview screen such as Crop Visual was opened, the latter flipping out at startup.
Piccolo loaders and savers are available for both these packages, so the problem can be circumvented, and there are libraries for use with Real3D and Imagemaster.
However, EGS still doesn’t have Workbench emulation good enough to match that offered by Retina or Picasso, and the retargeting utility does not offer control over refresh modes.
Although a last ditch method to coax unco-operative programs into life on an RTG card, editing the way the board displays each program individually is the only way to sort out glitches such as those which afflict Imagine when running under both Picasso and Piccolo.
Both cards will redirect Imagine to the 24-bit display where things move along a little faster and smoother, but when moving an object on-screen, a trail of orange The Piccolo 24-bit graphics card offers good hardware and a great software collection, as Stevie Kennedy found out GRAPHICS!

24-BIT IMAGES With a 2Mb Piccolo, this means that full size 24-bit images can be opened in their own windows, as many as the user likes, and brushes cut and pasted between them. In addition, the package would appear to make full use of Piccolo's blitter, as screen update is very fast for a 24- bit package and all movement and dragging operations work in full colour.
When, say, the palette requester is onscreen and is dragged to another position, it doesn't change into a highlighted box, but instead is dragged smoothly and with no fuss around the screen.
Brushes are likewise smooth and easy to use, and can be stored in a preview box at the bottom of the tool box until needed.
Image. With the use of a density setting, the user can blend brushes from various origins with the present image and there needn't be an ugly hard edge in sight.
As every file has its own window, the user can scroll around an image using the cursor keys or simply pull the drag bars to the required position.
This is not only very quick, but also negates the need for a big edit function, and means that when working across two or more images the artist never has to jump between spare pages or scroll around a huge page looking for the other pictures.
Painting tools are on the whole very good, though there are a couple of serious omissions. No anti-aliasing for text is one booby, as is the absence of a gradient fill option, but the rest of the package is so smooth and easy to use that one can almost forgive what in another paint program would result in a hurried trip to the bin.
The airbrush tool is a particular delight, with full control over the size, power, and form of the nozzle. Thin lines of paint surrounded by wisps of thinner colour, rings of colour, and the more traditional spray can effect are possible, and the user can create new effects using the control panel if necessary.
NO WAITING Brush operations are standard, with shear, flip, re-size, and rotate working as you'd expect, but in keeping with everything else there's no waiting around for a brush to reappear once rotated, Painter takes care of business very quickly.
I would have liked a perspective tool and perhaps some sort of brush feathering option, but to be fair to the package, these are usually the domain of expensive addon packages such as TVPaint 2, and PicoPainter is after all a bundled program.
Other features which stand out are the program's use of convolutions and colour processing controls. These are similar to those used by other packages and work well, if in a faintly dtjH vti way, and the embossing effects one can wrest from them are impressive.
When you combine a fast cheap graphics card with impressive software the likes of which this board boasts as a freebie, you have a winning package which should grab for itself a chunk of the 24-bit display market.
The £130 video module, when released, will also provide Piccolo with direct composite and Y C output from its as yet unused connectors, and when this happens there is every possibility that Piccolo might become an impressive video performer into the bargain.
For the moment, Piccolo would benefit from an improvement in the EG5 libraries and in particular some close attention to the reliability of the EGS Workbench emulation utility. Until this is brought up to the standards of Picasso and Retina, EGS cards in general will lag despite the huge potential of the software.

Robot builder FI have been trying for a while now to hook an old robot arm to my Amiga 600 and so far have failed. I bought it as a toy education tool for my son about five yeans ago and it's been in a cupboard ever since.
TECHNICAL HELP Now 1 reckon I can hook it up to my Amiga, like the robot arm you reviewed a while ago, but though I know a bit about Amos, I'm not sure how to go about addressing the serial port, or what extra hardware I need to get the thing to listen to me. Can you help?
Peter Withington, Walsall Your best bet, unless you are a ® fairly advanced programmer, is to contact Switchsoft, a company specialising in hardware projects such as control• ling lights and so on from the Amiga.
R They can be reached on 0325 345773 and should be able to supply you with the relevant switching boxes and a fetv hints and tips on sending Amiga signals via these boxes to external devices such as your redundant robol am.
Special agent I think I may have blown it big style. I have a digitiser which fits to the floppy port to draw power, and the cable recently got a little bit frayed. To fix it. I cut tne end off and re attached it, but it looks like I did It wrong.
There was no bang or puff of smoke, but ever since trying the digitiser again I find my extra floppy won’t work. Have I damaged my Amiga?
G Bates. Peterborough You may have fried a CIA chip, the custom chips which control input output to the pons on Ihe rear ot your Amiga, but this is quite difficult to do Digitisers won t send power back through the port, so a badly wired cable should really only result in no result - try again If a short circuit has bown the chip, you can check with a multimeter to see if the port is dead, using the pm out diagrams at the rear of the Amiga manual.
This won t tell you much, so the best course of action would be to have your machine checked by a local dealer. If they can t fix it on the premises, they should know a recog• msed repam who can.
Co forth WS I've been programming in Lw Basic for a few years now, and
* would like to use it to create a suite of simple analysis
programs to help me with my postgraduate work. Not being a
programmer, I've heard that Forth is good for this sort of
work, but I've never seen an Amiga version of it and have no
real information on it.
If you could point me in the right direction as regards a copy of Forth, or at least tell me if it's worth my while bothering with it. I'd be grateful.
IV McFadden, Bristol r Forth was originally developed as a dedicated language for controlling radio telescopes, and its only two notable forays in the home computer market happened in the early 80s.
It was used as the built-in language for the jupiler Ace micro, a short lived Spectrum look-alike, and formed the hearl of the White Lightning programming package, which tried to do for the 8-bit micros what Amos and Blitz Basic do for the Amiga. On the PC there are a few commercial implementations, but the Amiga has never enjoyed this sort of Forth support.
The only Amiga Forth interpreter I've seen is Iforth, which is supplied by Delta Research PO Box 1051 San Rafael California 94915 Phone: 0101415 461 1442 Alternatively, you can contact Helios Sofiuvre in this country on 0623 552828.
As for the language's suitability, its use of slacks and reverse Polish notation make it the fastest high level language for maths calculations, so it may well be the best choice for your analytical work.
Hard hatting ¦bv Having lost data on two occa- Uf sions due to hard drive failures, I’m beginning to lose faith in them. The first was a mystery which I put down to vibration damage, though how it happened I don't know, and the second was caused by a power spike during a recent thunder storm.
I had been playing Gunship 2000 when there was a flash, the lights went off, and my Amiga ground to a halt. As the thunder roared outside, I re-set the trip at my main fuse box and turned the machine back on with a nonchalant air. 1 mean, I had a trip switch and two fuses between the Amiga and the mains, so what could go wrong?
Imagine my despair when the drive reported checksum errors, then read write errors! What happened and how can I prevent this sort of disaster ever happening again?
A Luszjar, Birmingham rTou must be one of the most unlucky people around. Power spikes of this sort are rare, even during thunderstorms, and for it to harm your Amiga is even rarer.
It seems more likely that the hard drive was robbed of power as it was writing data, but as you were playing a game at the lime, this may not be the case.
Power surge protectors can be used to cut out the possibility of power surge damage, and are useful in areas where the power supply isn’t up to its usual reliable standards.
PSPs are in effect just very large capacitors which will soak up the surge and release it in a controlled fashion, and they work fine.
You probably don't need one, and the odds of this sort of thing happening to you again must be very remote, but for peace of mind you could try scanning the ads in a PC magazine, where PSPs can normally be found for sale, (TECHNICAL HELP Blow out WSS** Three days ago, my A500 blew IB up. No, really, it blew gp.
¥ I was sitting playing a game when a loud pop was followed by a cloud of smoke from the top of the machine, and the Amiga went totally dead. There was also a cloud of sort of fluffy stuff not unlike loft insulation.
Having no money, I asked a friend who repairs Tvs to take a look and he reckons it's a blown capacitor. There’s a single component with its top blown off near the floppy drive and if he can get the correct replacement he says he can fix my beloved Amiga.
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.
Is there any danger, do you think, that by fixing this capacitor we will simply leave the machine open to the same thing happening again? Could another more vital component be damaged if I just go on replacing the capacitor instead of finding the source of the fault?
A Fraser, Aberdeen rWhen a capacitor blows, it can go through old age or because it was subjected to current and voltages outside its rated maximum. If the former, a simple replacement job is fine, but if the latter there could be a much more serious fault which needs correcting urgently.
Some programs don't work with some switchers. Is this true? I'd buy an A1200, but as AGA seems to me to be a stop-gap before the AAA chip set is released next year, I don't want to be stuck with another obsolete machine.
Will I be able to use Productivity mode when 1 get a Kickstart 2.04 ROM?
Warren Tide, Newton-le-Willows rl don't know of any problems with ROM switchers and incompatibility. As the name suggests, a ROM ' switcher is more or less a completely mechanical device and shouldn't have an effect on the Amiga other than to change Kickstart ROMs. This will, of course, cause certain compatibility problems in itself, but the ROM chip rather than the switcher wilt be the root of this.
We don't share your sentiments about AGA. It is no more a stop gap than this Try replacing the capacitor at first, but if there is any repetition, take the machine to a repair sIwp at once.
ECS blues Owning an A500 with IB Workbench 1.3 is becoming a ¥ bit of a bind, and I've been considering moving up a notch.
However, as the A600 is a turkey and the A500 Plus is difficult to find these days, I've been looking at ROM switchers.
I've heard that some of them don't work as well as they should and that Pricey monitor puzzle question. The 1940 has a dot pitch of about .39, the same as the medium resolution 1084. Though it is capable of screen modes the 1084 would not handle. The 1942 monitor, however, has a much better dot pitch of .28. similar to SVGA monitors, and thus has a much better quality, and more expensive. CRT. Easy answer, eh?
Calculating vertical frequencies is a simple matter ot multiplying the number of tines the scanning beam must draw by the number of times it must do this per second. Using a 50Hz refresh rate, the calculation comes to: number of lines x 50 = vertical frequency So, for example, the maximum vertical overscan size ol a hi-res no flicker screen is 550 lines, This multiplies by 50Hz to give the vertical frequency of 27.5kHz. Your monitor would have lo be capable of accepting signals of this frequency before it would display this mode.
Fit, as most reviews say, the 1942 monitor is a bi-sync and will display a aga screen modes, why don't Commodore retail it as a cheap replacement for the 1084? It uses the same case and sound circuitry, so why is it so expensive?
Fair enough, it has a better tube, but a lower price would result in much higher sales (they must have sold thousands of 1084s), thus keeping cash flow healthy it nothing else.
When a company is in the sort of financial hole Commodore have dug for themselves, surely it makes sense to cut prices and sell aggressively in bulk?
On a more technical note, how do I work out from my screen resolution the frequency needed to display it?
Adam Cuthbertson, London Commodore's reasons for the marketing decisions they take are never easy to work out. But the reason for the 1942 s relatively high price point is given in your r year's Ford models are a stop gap between the 1992 range and the 1994 range. If the A1200 was the last Amiga development we were going to see for a couple of years, it would be very bad news indeed, because continual development is the only way a machine can survive in today's fast moving world.
As for Productivity mode, you'll need both Kickstart 2.04 and the Super Denise chip to make use of this and other ECS screen modes.
Dumb card ¦yr A friend of mine has a PC lap- Iw top which utilises the same ¥ smart cards as the A1200, and he has a 64k battery backed up SRAM card and a standard I Mb card.
Both work perfectly and both enhance the way the laptop works, yet when I try them on my A1200 they're not nearly as Serial printer I have the opportunity t: u buy a cheap old printer to next to nothing, but I doc know what make it is. The casing unbadged. Though the printer ribbt looks very similar to standard Epscr types, and the only clues to its uv are a set of DIP switches and serial interface with a six-pin cab connection.
I think it was used in a count office churning out listings, so should at least have a fast draft prr rate. But can you tell me if there any way of connecting it to m Amiga?
L Crichton, Clevelar Jthe connections tor tr* 1 printer's serial cable shout I be easy enough to suss otf I What you have is probably an o Mannesman or Epson printer, sotr- ot which used a six-pin serial I nterface.
Lightwave, a company specialisir in cables of all sorts, stock a six-pr I to standard 25-pin O-plug cable whx will allow you to connect the prime I fo the Amiga's serial port. Phor | them on 051-630 5003. Ask for par I number MCL-532. And you should be I on your way.
Just make sure that there is r: gender clash between the cable an: the ports (adaptors are available this is the case), and use an Epson a I Mannesman Tally printer driver. Yo.
Might not get top class results, btr I the printer should serve well enouc for listings, letters, and so on.
Good. Rather than making the machmJ run smoother because it has more me®-| ory, it seems if anything to go slow *J and I was very disappointed. Why i the A1200 so bad at using smar cards?
B Morrison, Welling rThe A1200 is fine at handling smart cards, it's just that tk cards themselves are prettJ stupid.
PCMCIA cards are 16-bit and they I to the Amiga across an 3-bil data bus.'
Means that as far as memory goes they i slower than the chips built into the A5C$ J never mind proper 32-bit RAM connei to the A1200 trapdoor.
Any A1200 program running in the fi RAM provided by a smart card will i slower and less smoothly than if the teas removed, so forget about PCMCIA k memory purposes.
If the cards worked well with friend's PC laptop, I would hazard a ; that the laptop was a 286 clone, and th fore based on the same 16-bit technology 4 the RAM cards.

New owners this year, most of whom will be enjoying the celights of the A1200, have more choice than ever before in :erms of software and hardware, and as last month’s Software Encyclopaedia should have answered most of iOur questions on the software front, we’ll now concentrate on the latter.
Banging a new hard drive or 4Mb of fast RAM in a machine is a sure ticket to more computing pleasure, but hard drives, and the rest of the gang are covered, and you’ll find RAM expansions dealt with by the round-up in the main magazine.
There should therefore be enough to guide most first time peripheral purchases, but for more in-depth reviews and the latest on what has been released for your machine, don't forget to read Amiga Computing every month.
As Santa heaves into sight on the horizon and thoosands of shoppers descend on Britain's retail centres, Amiga Computing tries to pot things in perspective for the new Amiga owner struggling to survive the Christmas period with wallet and sanitg intact the choice is a bewildering one. Add to this the huge range of printers, floppy drives, and accelerators and the decision on what to buy begins to assume nightmare proportions.
Within this short supplement, we've tried to cram as much information as we can on the essential low-cost extras every A1200 owner will want to make his or her own, Printers, I Flexibl friends A I I A 4 Abe mo smi Wir E Th G i All Roclite If speed and style is what you're looking for from a floppy the Roclite is the dnve of your dreams. The unit itself is by far the smallest, slimmest and fastest drive we had on test. 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 Roclite comes with both anti-dick and anti-virus which when combined with its pure elegance and speed make it a very attractive buy.
If you're looking for a stylish slimline drive that can outpace the opposition but that still retails at a very respectable pnee, Roclite is the answer, Price Watch: Roclite. £59, Gordon Harwood. 0773836781 Power PCB80B Now here’s a dnve 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 cfcsabling the write-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 as far as we should go with this particular line of thought.
Allhough rather long the dnve still remains surprisingly thin considenng the amount of hardware stuffed inside - the anti-dick, Blitz plus the standard dnve mechanism. As Cumana Cumana drives have been around as long the Amiga and to their credit I'd be surprised is the very first unit out of the factory isn’t still going strong.
Sturdy, reliable, bonng, 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 modem dnves but simply want an external that will last longer than you will, the Cumana is the parted choice.
Price Watch: Cumana. £49.95, Cumana Limited, 0483503121 If you’ve just bought a new machine, an extra floppy is an absolute must!
Side from a mouse, the most important add-on to any new system has to be an external floppy. With this in mind. AC brings you the best selection ol external floppies money can buy.
If you're repelled by the designer label look, the Zydec offering provides the minimalist styling and space conscious design that any environmental fnendly 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 spin could soon change your mind.
If you're looking for a basic but efficient drive the Zydec is fme. But considenng the extra features on many of the opposition I must admit it wouldn't be my first choice unless desk space was extremely tight.
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 reasonable asking price.

M1230XA New from Microbotics. The M1230XA range offers both the cheaper EC 68030's alongside standard 030s with built-in MMUs - both of which can employ optional 6888'1 or two FPUs. The vanous designs range from 40 to 50MHz with RAM configuration ranging from 0 to 8Mb. To add the finishing touch a battery backed-up dock has been thrown in for good measure.
In keeping with the Microbotics tradition for quality engineering, the boards use mostly surface mounted components and display a general build quality which make them hard to beat.

Unlike its cousin, the MBX range starts with 68881 FPUs running at 14 Mmz with either 0,4 or 8Mb or RAM.
Alternatively you can opt for the 68882 running between 25 and 50MHz with identical 0,4 and 8Mb RAM configurations. As you'd expect the same Microbotics build quality is inherent throughout the range and like the XA series each card comes complete with a clock.
However |'d certainly question the wisdom of investing in a 4Mb 14MHz 68881 when you could buy a 4Mb 25MHz 68882 tor only £50 extra. In short, steer dear of the 14MHz variants, they're simply not worth the money.

Like the other boards it stvps m various RAM and FPU configurations but alas it does work out slightly more expensrve than the majority of the opposition, although the is balanced by the abity to expand up to 32Mb as opposed to the 8Mb limit on most boards.

Again like the opposition a battery back-up clock comes as standard but in a break from tradition all models in the PC1204 range are shipped with 4Mb on-board as standard - only when it comes to the FPU and Mhz are you required to make a choice.

3«h monitors offer sharp displays at the usual 640 x 5c Workbench resolutions, and with their stereo sound are ideal for games, music and video applications.
When used for a hi-res interlace mode though, these old battle horses show their weaknesses.

You can add a colour ribbon at minimal cost, but yocl need a printer driver - widely available from the PD Basically you're looking at the budget 9-pin that's a v fuzzy but thankfully much quieter than the LC-200. Whit offering only one less typeface.

The actual feeder is pretty good, though there's a slight tendency for paper to stick on a ridge inside and not
hit the feed hole if you aren't careful. It isn't particularly bad. But it does occa- Fujitsu DL1150 Full marks for strangeness, as the Fujitsu is without doubt the weirdest looking printer by a long way. Unfortunately nil points for the sheet feeder, which is tripe.
Still, a number of nice looking built-in LQ fonts are easy to get at from the simplistic front panel, Performance-wise it isn’t particularly noisy, is medium pace at 6Gcps in LQ mode and has a respectable printer buffer.
It also has a good range of emulation, though the Epson one is not the most common you could ever see.
Pnnt quality is potentially pretty good since those curves and jagged lines are nicely smoothed.
Throw in the colour option and you've got a large, light-* ish. Easy to use printer that's good for dealing with larger amounts of text rather than graphics.

Quality wise you're talking pretty mueh even with the Epson LQ-100 - although the larger characters are handled much better by the Swift. H you're looking for a best buy In this article, the Swift 200. With its six LQ fonts, cheap colour ribbon option and high quality output, is it.
Citizen Swift SOD As you'd expect, the 200 sports the same command panel as its relation with assorted sliders and buttons all working in exactly the same way.
Adding the fact that the sheet feeder is just as good, there s also that excellent automatic paper feed mechanism.
Add a snap-off panel for font cartridges and you have a printer that's physically identical. Where the difference comes is in the printer engine, with the 200 offering superb 24-pin quality, and a colour option.
OK.

coupon k» t» lataot Wormatnn Ohese are hard times, and despite
claims to the contrary, there are lots of cowboys around eager
to make a fast buck and relieve you of youf cash.
How that is not to say all traders are devious - indeed, the cowboys are rapidly becoming fewer and fewer as consumer knowledge grows. But as our mailbag proves, problems still abound, so how can we minimise any possible hassle9 ¦ " mCONSUMER GUIDE I If you have a good relationship with your local dealer, and you are a regular customer, buying from that source is without doubt still the best way He will value your regular custom, and yOu will not have far to go if problems occur. You will also have ‘an ear to the ground’, and it’s likely that second-hand bargains or special offers will reach
you quickly.
Always ask to see any kit working, be it hardware or software. Check that all documentation accompanying it is complete. Read the warranty, including the small print.
Guard against exclusions such as "No liability whatsoever is accepted" and the like.
Buyers Seek discounts Retain your receipt and keep it in a safe place. If the ink pnntout from the tilkoll is one of those faded purple varieties, ask the shop owner to ink it in and sign it. Keep the packaging (inside a polythene bag in the loft iS a good spot). Some warranties require returns in original packaging.
A 4 Abe mo smi Wir Cash has a remarkable effect. Always ask for a discount for cash, if you have it. Expect at least 10 per cent, or ask to have something thrown in with the pnee -; printer leads with a pnnter. Or disks with a major purchase.
Ask the owner to demonstrate the kit. Box shifters such as the major electrical retailers generally won't know a genlock from a gymslip. But a local computer dealer worth his salt should be able to talk knowledgeably about his stock.
Tb Q i Al!
Ask about advice and tips in using Ihe purchase. If you have seen the same goods advertised cheaper elsewhere, take the advert and show it to the owner when discussing pnee.
Above all, be fnendly, but be firm, Don’t be fobbed off if something does not seem completely kosher, like missing packaging or boxes which looks well used (a possible repaired item) Be wary of opened licence agreements on software (copied?) Or well-thumbed manuals (previous visitor).
Mail order is probably the source of the biggest number of complaints. Often the cause is the fault of the.
Purchaser, in not indicating clearly the exact nature of what's needed or falling to provide essential information such as correct address or credit card number.
I will deal with methods of purchase later, but when ordenng by post, be it by phone or letter, be prepared for the pitfalls. Have the advert in front of you when you place the order. Read the small print. Look out for exclusion clauses or exemptions. Telephone the company to ensure the following facts. Is the item available from stock? Is the price as advertised9 Does the price include VAT? What is the cost of postage9 How long win delivery take? Are the goods covered by insurance during transit9 What guarantees are offered9 Who pays postage in the event of breakdown?
When you telephone, give specific information regarding your set-up - Amiga, add-ons. Memory additions, revisions of frequently used software and so on Ask about compatibility These facts could determine Wilf Rees reports on how to ensure your hard-earned cash brings you best value, rather than anger and grief whether or not a prospective purchase is suitable for yoj system.
If it is not and the error is yours, then the venoy is under no legal obligation to return your mone?
Always keep all correspondence, as well as copies 7 your letters.
Checkpoints When the goods amve, check the contents carefully is I ensure everything is present. Look for your receipt 7 purchase. Try out the goods immediately to ensure the* I work properly. Store the packaging safely. If there is I fault, do not attempt to repair anything.
Should any of the above checkpoints be negative then contact the company immediately, describe; the nature of the problem Be calm and polite, and dcr start demanding redress or compensation.
Often problems arise purely from misunderstand and manufacturers omissions, not directly the fault of tnt vendor, but they are certainly their responsibility. The vast majority of mail-order companies will correct a_ problem witho.- hesitation. You me however be require: to return the goods s your own cost.
When it comes!: payment, cash is ofte* the best way to dea locally, allowing you tc negotiate a good deal, to when it comes to any other kind of order, the situate is quite drfferent.
The key factor govern how you pay by mail order 6 if the article is over £100. A : whether or not you have i credit card, The reason for this definition is embodied * the Consumer Credit Ac-
1974.
This Act determines statute** consumer rights affectr; purchases over £100 bought or CONSUMER EUWEm
* jit Cards such as Access. Barclaycard and «e:ercard offer
protection from retailer malpractice, ¦ eh really means these
purchases are best conducted » paste.
An important point here to clarify is the :*«rence between the aforementioned cards, and :-«s such as Switch or Connect. These are not *r?d by the Act, as they are debit cards, without credit Secondly, if goods are ordered on a second user card, cover is not automate, and such liability has never tested in the courts. Never send cash through the jck Who do you blame if it goes missing?
1 you must pay by cheque or postal order, keep the zjx or counterfoils. If credit facilities are offered, never kj-ee to anything until you have full details of the rase agreement. You will in all probability get better wts elsewhere.
Guarantees ’ s often the case that shops wdl offer a guarantee, in
• Mition to the manufacturer's. Ask for details about wars, and
time taken. A manufacturer's guarantee can
* very useful, as long as the company still exists.
Whatever a manufacturer's guarantee says, remem- :*• you can still demand your statutory rights from a too. Even if the manufacturer warranty has expired.
If your computer breaks down two days after : .-chase, it is unreasonable for the retailer to say 1 will it back to Crappy Computers for repair".
You can demand a replacement or a refund. If it :-?ak$ down after two months, then the situation is s ghtly different, On-site maintenance contracts can ?.c«j this problem, but I hope you have better luck with the proper procedures, without any joy, here are some useful tips. Wnte to the company by Recorded Delivery, addressing your correspondence to the managing director stating clearly the full circumstances.
Write to any trade organisation to whom the retailer or mail-order company might belong. These organisations always have codes of practice which detail minimum standards expected ot members.
Write to your credit card company enclosing a copy of the letter sent to the MD They will act as mediator in a dispute. Write to your local Trading Standards or Consumer Protection Dept, explaining all the facts and A rK AIAA, A A AAA, AA AafrAAAAn AAAA enclosing copies 01 correspondence.
They investigate false or misleading descriptions, as well as malpractice, and may prosecute. Don't get angry and abusive, you just end up sounding stupid and acting like a prat, Don’t contemplate any silly actions such as distnbuting defamatory literature in front ot the shop.
This has happened in the past and the culprit was sued for £2.000 for damages.
If goods have failed to arrive, nng the company often, being polite but firm. Don't accept the offer of credit notes, or any similar carrots.
Final option When the waiting becomes unacceptable, write by Recorded Delivery stating your intention to offer a further seven days grace after which you will not accept the goods.
So, after all of this gnef. You still are not satisfied. Well there is one final option, and one you might not have considered as an alternative, but you can sue, The Small Claims Court was set up to solve just this kind of problem. It handles disputes up to £1,000. It is fast, inexpensive and fairly user-friendly.
Disputes are settled in a non-threatening environment, and the arbitrator will rule there and then on the outcome.

Ask how long a guarantee repair will take. If a manufacturer guarantees turnaround within x working days, then they are liable to compensation if they fail to achieve this.
If you do have a problem, and you have fulfilled all of If you want to consider this option, go along to your local county court where you can obtain leaflets which explain in detail how the whole process works.
What are my rights?
The laws which determine consumer protection are: The Supply of Goods (Implied Terms) Act 1973; The Consumer Credit Act 1974; The Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977; The Sale of Goods Act 1979; The Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982.
These laws cover all of the UK except Scotland, where common law covers most situations - otherwise specific issues are dealt with on an individual basis. All of these laws are written in the usual gobbledygook you might expect from lawyers, but in the context of how you stand, the basic principles are: When you buy something, the seller and yourself enter into a contract. A contract can be both written and or verbal. Any dispute you have is solely with the seller. The manufacturer has no involvement.
Don't be fobbed off by Til send it back" stories. Goods must be of "merchantable quality", that is fault free and reasonably fit for the purpose for which they are sold, The law also covers second-hand goods, but the condition will be reflected in the price, so you are not legally entitled to "top quality". Goods must be "as described", whether on the package, in an advert or by telephone.
You are entitled to reject replacement or alternative items. Goods must be "fit for the purpose described". Wood glue must glue wood. If any of the above conditions are not met, you are entitled to one of three options, depending usually upon how long you have had the goods, or how serious the problem is.
Firstly, you can reject the goods immediately and get your money back. Or you can obtain a cash payment to make up the difference between what you paid and the reduced value of the goods you bought.
Finally, if you both agree, you can get a replacement or a free repair.
Do remember the element of fairness. You are not entitled to any form of redress if you examined an item when you bought it and should have noticed any problems, or were told about them at the time.
You can't expect compensation if you did the damage yourself or simply decided afterwards that you didn't want it. And if you receive something as a present, then the original buyer must pursue any problems.

¦ HARDWARE When you first buy your Amiga you're so pleased with it, you don’t give the old floppy drive a second thought. It's there internally in the case, and what more do you need to know? Well, soon you realise that one floppy is never enough, and like RAM or hard disk space, you can't have too much of it.
Copying disks is a nightmare without another drive, so it’s advisable to have more than one at your disposal. There's no reason why you shouldn't have more, but then you run into some difficulties which you will need to be aware of. But then that's why we're here, isn't it? Aren't you the lucky ones!
When you get to the shop and say: "Can I have a floppy drive please?" The shopkeeper will suck his cheeks in like a man estimating your plumbing bill.
"What sort of drive?" He'll say.
"Er..." you'll snap back cleverly.
And you'll feel a bit of a prat, won't you?
Not to worry. Here’s what he's talking about.
Internal drives are the ones like the one which is already in your Amiga. If you have a big box Amiga, like a 1500, 2000, 3000, or 4000, then you have room for more internal drives. If you have a 500, 600 or 1200 you don't. There is room for only one drive in the case and it's already there.
External drives connect to the machine via the external drive connector, on the back of the machines marked Disk Drive- This means that the external drive has its own case, and a lead which plugs into five port at the back. There are single drives and double drives, which obviously increases the power overload, but increase your productivity.
Extra hole on the opposite side to the write protect tab, and a little HD symbol on the bottom near the sliding cover.
These disks format to 1.76Mb, or twice the capacity of a regular 880k floppy, simply by having a disk which is more dense than regular disk media.
This is just like the difference between chrome and metal cassette tapes, and the cheap ferric oxide ones you get free from The size of the drives is not usually important, as most Amiga drives are 3.5in, but some can be had which are 5.25in. These are for IBM style big (very) floppy disks, and are only for use with IBM emulators like the Bridgecards.
A number of good high density drives are around too, which run disks which look very similar to the normal double density disks you run all the time, apart from an Speed comparisons The speed of floppies is terrible, compared lo hard disks and CD ROMs. Transfer rates and access times are tossed about like so much technical salad, but the basic idea is this. Try it. If it's fast enough, buy it, if it sucks then go elsewhere.
Also, access times and transfer rates are not interdependent. It may take only 19ms to access the disk, but if it takes ten minutes to transfer the thing, what s the point?
CD ROM Faster than floppies but slower than hard disks, although the speed is getting up now. Most adverts for conventional Cds talk about transfer rates of about 150k per second. Access time about 500ms.
Double speed models run at about 300kps, with access times around 280ms, and the newer quad speed devices are running up to 600kps.
Floppy Typically have access times which are quite fast these days, in the 20ms mark, but the transfer rates are awful, in the 100 to 200kps range, so large files take ages to load copy savo.
Hard drives Most HD manufacturers head for the 20 to 30ms access times, and transfer rates of around 650 to 700k per second.
The garage. There are a number of new drives which offer optical or "floptical" technology for capacities of 20Mb and 128Mb per disk, but these are rare at the moment, and obviously you pay through the nose for the drives and floppies alike.
These are bordering on removable fixed or hard disks, but without, of course, the fast access times of those mediums. Well go into speed in a moment, but take it from me for now that speed is a bonus.
OEMs Drives themselves are almost always made by the same manufacturers, like Citizen or Panasonic. These are called Original Equipment Manufacturers or OEMs, The drives can be used with any computer, but they need a special interface to work with the Amiga specifically.
This interface is built in to the case by the vendor - whoever builds and sells you die drive - which explains why most drives am as reliable as each other and about the same price, as they are all pretty much based on the same actual technology.
The power overheads required to run a drive from the computer's power supply are quite shallow on an Amiga 500 600 and so daisy chaining two or three drives together isn't really possible like it would be on a 2000, which has a more powerful power supply.
The best floppy drive in the world is only as good as the disks you put into it, If you buy in bulk or reformat cheap disb you will get errors of some sort at son* time. This much is a fact.
The only way to minimise (notice I diiin say remove) these problems is to always u* new disks for important data, and alwaw but always, back up. Another good case fa having more than one disk drive unit!
The thing is that floppies wear out, gd irradiated by hi-fi speakers, and the old "being rested on top of a Walkman trick”» a good one too. You could be walking!
Around the shops with a disk in your pocket, and the next guy in the queue for the bus has a I6in electromagnet in ha jockey shorts.
It could happen. If you use duff media cr don't make back-ups, the perverted got with the electromagnetic appliance dow? I his pants (or whatever) is going to kill of your data, el quicko.
Also ensure that you screw the little con I necting screws on your external disk dm? I leads into the port at the back of your I machine.
Pulling the disk drive lead out is one wan to ensure that your machine and the disn drive get fried, as the drive gets its power from the Amiga down this port, So makrl sure it’s securely fitted before you turn thr machine on, and don't unplug it until you've powered down.
Disks get corrupted, and there's really nel way of avoiding it every once and a while!
We've just been into some of the ways you HARDWARE!

What should you buy and why? Well this isn't a buyers' guide so I can’t tell you what, but why? Well that's easy. You just have to have the money to buy one, and about £40 should cover it, plus an eye out for any extra features.
If you haven't got an external drive for your machine then go and get one, and stop complaining. You know it makes sense.
E3 Jargon buster access time This refers to how long any storage device can locate and begin loading a piece of information from the disk. See also Transfer Rate daisy chaining The act of chaining one drive onto Ihe back of another one.
Some disk drives have another drive port on the back and you can plug another drive into it. The name comes from the way the drives look when fixed together resembling a daisy chain.
DIP switches A little tiny row of toggle switches fitted to a device or motherboard, usually for activating functions or configunng a device.
The DIP refers probably to the Dual In-line Package, or the little multi-legged chip that the switches are mounted on, and how they are soldered onto the board.
Drive click Amiga drives click every few seconds or so because they are looking for a disk in the dnve. Some PD programs exist to stop this, but some drives actually have a hardware solution to the problem.
Floppy disK Actually most disks these days aren't floppy, but they were. In the history of computing they were big 5m or even 8in thin plastic things which bent as you were putting them in the drive and were generally a pain to work with. Now we have then in nice neat 3.5in hard plastic so we can get away with abusing them a bit more. Not!
Power overhead Daisy-chaining drives together is a little bit hazardous on the A500 The power overhead (the power left after some is drawn by each device down the drive port) decreases to very low levels as more dnves are added.
One or two external drives is all you can really get away with, and it's always safer to add a drive with its own power supply if you can.
Slimline dnves used to be big kinking great boxes the size of a VCR.
And then came the slimline drive mechanism.
Some said at the time 'some day all dnves will be made this way", and they were right.
Transfer rate The speed at which data is transferred from one device to another, like from a modem to a computer or the disk dnve to the memory.

Wf to nr H F! Or ray tracing and modelling fanatics everywhere, Pixel 3D Professional has become one of
* r most wanted add-ons. However, its frightening RRP hasn't
exactly gen-
- na?d record breaking sales.
A result, Axiom Software have now ¦ evened the pot with not only an extra Mhrare freebie but also a special anorak's ¦OornY T-shirt.
- . Though a pleasant touch, the idea of verting a Dan Dare motif
along with the phrase "Pixel Boy" emblazoned across the E-»t
isn't exactly my idea of high fashion.
Leaving the marketing gimmicks aside, real carrot for a would-be investor is
* addition of Animation Workshop to tv Pixel 3D Pro bundle. As
its title sug- fr*ts, Animation Workshop is aimed «. _ a rely
at anim production and tunipulation.
Cut-down For the countless ADPro fans out there, t-t Workshop screenshot will no doubt win somewhat familiar. In fact, looks aren't all that it has in common with DPro.
In fact, Workshop could almost be :e cribed as a cut-down version of ASDG's excellent ProControl batch pro- :r-ssing software. With the aid of Workshop, ADPro commands can be rlied automatically to each frame of an
i. -Mmation, thereby avoiding the some- »h terrifying process of
generating your Arexx scripts.
As a result, Workshop is only really at it* best in combination with ADPro - although it can Still perform impressive compilation and processing without the assistance of its expensive associate.
Although compilation is an important :«rt of Workshop, it's by no means every- Graphics [J extravaganza images - thereby aiding individual frame selection.
In addition to graphic talents, audio can also play a part with IFF samples playing at any point during the animation - regardless of whether the anim is looping or otherwise.
Like most other power packages, Arexx has been adopted allowing access to personalised Arexx scripts and potential links to other programs.
All round the addition of Workshop certainly doesn't do Pixel 3D Pro any harm at all - although a combination of ADPro and ProControl would be a far superior image processing combo.
Still for the dedicated ray tracer the new Pixel 3D Pro is more attractive than ever - even though it appears nothing has been done to improve the rather quirky nature of the main program, which still insists on occasionally removing or adding the odd face for no good reason.

Workbench The Workbench on an Amiga is like a workshop or work
top - it's the control
- smtre where things are created, added to and destroyed along
with many .ther things.
If you have a hard drive, simply switch- ag your machine on will boot up the Workbench. If you've been following the r-ide since last month, you’ll already know how to boot up the floppy disk
* TTsk n, A quick reference to the difference setween floppy and
hard drives. A floppy inve is a nasty, slow and unreliable way
at storing information and the data comes so a disk.
Si ImtiftH tiick j tin, i.m m BC rT * A hard drive is usually built inside and can store far more info (up to whatever ie you want to pay for). It runs much quicker and is far, far more resilient lo ¦ear and tear (as long as you don't drop tw computer).
In wmtMi nsr We'll go into more depth with both of Swm in another issue. For now, let's con* .efltrate on actually operating the basics of fv Workbench.
Take a look at the icons that run down left-hand side of the screen. These are picture symbols for the various programs ™ut they represent.
IiEu Go up to the one labelled Workbench, rang the red arrow (your pointer) which is controlled by your movements with the mouse. Click twice ("double click") on it quickly with the left mouse button.
You'll find that the left button is generally used for selecting options, such as loading and moving things around.
A window opens up which simply displays what files and programs the selected icon contains. Imagine this system as the modern equivalent of a Russian doll - opening up a main directory (a place where all the files and programs . V Jl Clock Icon - 71 doubleclick fo open c Adam Phillips guides you through your first precarious, post-Christmas magazine rack encounter are kept) reveals smaller directories or files which then in turn open up to reveal still more and so forth until either you choose the desired file or the computer has displayed all the avenues available.
Again double click on the drawer labelled Utilities. This opens up another window with more icons. Select the Clock icon using the same process as before.
An analogue clock will appear in the top left of the screen. It doesn’t have the right time but don't worry about that yet Study the blue framed window that contains the time piece. You'll see that it has a blue title bar running along the top with the word Clock in it.
Go up to this bar, press the left button down and keep it held down. Now move the mouse and you'll see that the window follows the movement of your hand Bringing your finger off the button places the window in Ihe position you put it in. Take the clock back to its original place using the same method.
Take a look at the bottom right-hand corner of the window and you'll see a small white marker that looks like a cut in half square. This Is called the sizing gadget. Click and hold on it with the left button. Drag the mouse outwards away from the window and you'll see two lines stretch and move with you. These determine the size of the window. Release the button and it is redrawn to your exact requirements.
The right mouse button is commonly used for calling up pull down menus at the top of the screen and selecting them.
Hold the right button down and you'll see the words Project and Settings appear at the top.
Black box Keeping the button pressed down, go up to Projects and a menu will appear. Still holding the key, move down the list and you'll see a black box appears around each option in the list. Rest on Digital and release your finger. The clock will now turn into a digital read-out in the top loft comer.
From here, if you take a look at the top left of the window, you'll notice a little white square. Clicking on this will close the clock box.
That just about covers basic window manipulation for this month. Have a go with the other drawers in Workbench and experiment until you're 100 per cent confident with the aforementioned gadgets.
If you have any spare time, assuming vou bought the Desktop Dynamite pack, open up the Wordworth vl manual and start reading - it'll take a month to plough through...
• Next month we'll take a look al the remaining window facilities
on offer and installing sofhoare on Ihe hard V,f J drive. ¦ OF

Now though. Mpeg decoder cards are appearing in a
steady trickle for all machines, and the Amiga is right in there with its first release, the Peggy board from German company Helfrich International.
And needed to fill no more than 200k m floppy or hard drive, the user could d a target size for the file and 4 program would endeavour to meet m requirement.
This might not be possible, of qxjJ and in such cases reducing the qualm d ihe finished playback or cutting the ject's length would be the only answer ] Standard Mpeg size is 352 x 288, crM res interlace with video overscan, buifl A card for all Zorro II or Zorro III expansion slots, Peggy comprises the C- Cube decoder hardware, based around the CL450 video decoder, and a built-in genlock to send output to either the monitor screen or the outside world.
The latter is a little problematic as the board has no video output, just RGB on a 15-pin D-plug, so users who wish to videotape their Mpeg movies will have to use an RGB to composite encoder.
Supplied with the Enhanced Graphics System (EGS) libraries, Peggy utilises retargetable graphics techniques and a pass-through mode similar to that employed by the Piccolo and Picasso boards. Users connect their Amiga output to the board's 9-pin input and their monitor to the 15-pin connector.
Once set up, Peggy passes all Amiga video signals through to the monitor, and mixes its own with them when asked to by software so that Mpeg movies can be displayed in Workbench windows using the talents of the integral genlock. These displays are therefore in full video colour, which makes for superb previews of the finished Mpeg project.
As we go to press, software supplied with the board has yet to be finalised, and the Mpeg player utility we were supplied with used the Peggy hardware for real time playback, but was very basic. It was impossible to use windows over the Workbench screen or on an EGS display card, thus limiting the board's usefulness.
What is Mpeg?
The Mpeg video compression standard, named alter the Motion Picture Expert Group which formulated the standard in 1991, is a set of rules governing the way in which video and audio is compressed such that the resulting file takes up very little space on disk and plays back at full video speed.
Beginning life as nothing more than this set of paper-bound rules. Mpeg has now reached the hardware stage with a number of companies producing decoder chips specifically designed to decompress Mpeg files (known as “streams’) at 25 frames per second. The best known example at the moment is C-Cube's chip set. And it is this set which Peggy and Commodore's CD32 full motion video cartridge contain.
An Mpeg stream contains either video information alone or combined video and audio, and the Mpeg decoder’s job is to extract both, A system decoder first splits the stream into timing, video, and audio information, passing these on to their own decoder chips.
When the signals have been decompressed, the timing information is used to recombine them as a complete PAL or NTSC composite video signal which can be displayed on any TV. Monitor, or taped by a VCR In other words, from a set of files on hard dnve. Whether digitised video or com* puter animation files, the Amiga can use Mpeg to create a digital movie then play it back at full speed.
Mpeg's only major drawback at the moment is that in its first incarnation. Mpeg-1. It has a full video frame size of only 352 by 288, which works out at lo-res interlace with overscan. Picture quality is therefore lar from TV broadcast standards, and is lower than normal video quality.
When compressing and playing back computer animations, the degradation can be marked, making Mpeg more Suitable for multimedia and games work, but digital videos on CD are still possible, and as there are many ways in which the Mpeg encoder software can be tweaked, the original stream can be optimised either for smallest storage space or best quality.
For the purposes of creating Mpeg streams in the first place, a professional encoder program was included with our Peggy card, but as this uses the EGS libraries, a suitable display card, such as Piccolo or Rainbow, must be present if you want to use the software.
Additionally, the professional software costs £250 extra, though a more basic encoding package will be bundled with the board.
The professional software is a dream to use and offers complete control over the encoding process. Mpeg streams are treated as projects within which any number of scenes can be included, and the scenes, individual frames, or ranges of frames can be cut, pasted, and generally moved around with ease.
When the project is set up to the user's satisfaction, there are plenty of options available for those with specific requirements or a good knowledge of the technicalities of Mpeg. Playback parameters include frequency (24,25 or 30Hz), image size, and whether there is a set rate or file size the user requires.
For example, if the finished Mpeg stream was to be used in a game demo encoding con be slow, but Ihe end results are olmotl always spectacular VIDEO!
¦ software has the option to cut t quarter screen for fast previews or Class cruncher r to dimensions set by the user.
Times are checked for size and : so the finished Mpeg size before , so a lot of time can be saved if ¦ ensures that his or her source i are of the correct size to start .in S' I playback can be PAL, NTSC, or i Av fkbench window, and there is an Mpeg encoding is a complex process governed by strict rules laid down in the ISO CD11172 standard, and works in a broadly similar way to a Dpaint animation.
Individual frames are not stored as full frames, but are interpreted as the difference between one frame and another, which means that a finished Mpeg stream need store only a very small amount of the original frame information.
To aid in judging this process, a number of frames, known as Intra frames, are stored completely and used as reference points in the animation. From these, the encoding program works out how much has changed between one point and another, then creates “interpolated* frames, which are the actual differences stored as code.
The techniques used to judge changes are known as forward prediction and bi-directional prediction. Forward prediction is a simple matter Of stopping at an Intra frame (or l-frame) and looking ahead to the next few frames coming through the encoding process before creating interpolated frames.
Bi-directional prediction is much more effective because it looks forward and backwards to the surrounding frames and creates a more accurate picture of animation changes. This method also saves much more space than forward prediction, and is a lynch pin in the Mpeg encoding process.
As an example, a 90 frame Mpeg stream we created tor this article contained 16 Intra-frames. 15 predicted frames, and 59 interpolated frames. This means that two-thirds of the original data has been interpreted by Mpeg as changes and stored in a much more efficient way Total file size for the 90 original frames was 6Mb, an Anim-5 file created using the frames, scaled to the same size as an Mpeg screen, came to 1 5Mb, and the finished Mpeg stream was only 425k in size That's a 72 per cent saving in space, and to top it off the finished file will play back at 25 frames per second using Peggy's
decoder hardware.
Option to have the stream displayed through an ECS videolayer window, so the user who needs lots of previews or some digital movies for presentation and multimedia work should be happy enough.
I .
The best results are obtained by using PAL interlace, but until the system software is completed and a more flexible video solution worked out, it is impossible to say how good this would look on tape.
Filtering effects can also be used to radically affect final output. A simple to use menu screen can be summoned to The bottom line Product: Peggy Supplier; Ramiga International Price: £530 Phone: 0782 398840 Ease-of-use: 8 Implementation: 6 Value for money; 7 Overall: 7 4 Just about everything the user could want in one program volution or colour processor.
This is not the sort ot close image control one would expect from a simple encoder, and keeps just about everything the user could want to do inside a single program. Bundled software is nowhere near as professional, and you'll have to keep an eye on our updates column for news of this as it appears.
FLIPPING At the end of the process, when the finished stream is re-played, the decoded information appears in the display window or screen the user selected from the output options, and he or she can flip backwards and forwards through the movie using on-screen VCR controls.
Eight levels of slow motion playback combined with fast forward and single step viewing give the user full viewing pleasure and ensure that if there is a problem with a scene it can be found and the exact position noted.
Peggy is a complete Mpeg tool for developers and those in the games and multimedia industries who need to create Mpeg movies on the Amiga. The professional encoding software is superb and the board works perfectly as a playback facility.
However, with no direct video output and no real option to add it at the moment, those who can't wait to start creating digital movies might be a little disappointed. M' J Vn'lMXE i Jjr.

TUTORIAL!
Well, we've given you Amos 3D, but what can you do with it? You can use it to cre- m arahtni 3D objects for all your Amos cre- and even compile programs 5 3D shapes, loo!
¦ i • A * Two Different Shelves Required 3D, like the compiler and other
• like the excellent Amos TOME, is i extension. This means that
it adds to the Amos command set. You hive an editor program
called Object or OM, with which you can create mr .mu 3D
objects for use with Amos.
PUPQ i jr*1'
• [ 0 H D & r- ¦ Fa ¦ SURFACE St DETAIL In A ¦ tTTTTTT ?
DjK==JI Wr=j«
• V- 1 * A ' ' L JW Q Copy an objrxt lo a working shelf and you
tan start to edit It to taste
• - u run OM either by typing OM if v x a shell user, or simply
clicking on the 0! :f you are running from Workbench.
II: refers to run alone, so free up memory la .quitting any other programs you may wtt running. Although there are a lot of
• -.imple objects on the disk to get you sifjg, you have to
create your own objects mg the OM. You create shapes using
rrmitives and bolt them together into big- bet objects- The
objects you make can be shaded any ours you like, and you can
even draw «*j1I bitmaps onto the sides of shapes to
- .ike them more interesting.
Digital sculptures The program features a lot of tools for
- “etching, squashing and forming primi- : •©. Like squares,
circles, cubes and pyra- zads. You copy the primitives to work
areas an the screen called "shelves", where you
* irk on them with the mouse.
To copy a shape from the shelf it is stored i (from the ten small ones at the top of the ¦rat) to a shelf you are working in (the
- »o big spaces underneath) you simply dick the Copy button.
Once a shape is copied into a working you can begin to move it around and lier its structure. You can deform a shape ¦ many ways, like squashing and stretch* rg the whole shape, or even moving a single side while keeping the rest of the shape AIL You do this by selecting a point, line or face, and deforming the selected item by chcking on the Rotation control (or the arrows next to it for finer control) while
- .'lding the button down and moving the mouse- Selected faces
have a special marker on rem so you know which is the active
face

AMOSf2Q!itn ffXtTTv ¦ L '0 The objects are in a very specific
format. And each object is in fact a collection of a number
of files, not just one. If you intend moving objects around,
you will have to shift all the components of the object, and
not just the first one you come to.
It should be easy to mop surface detail onto ony 30 object when doing an operation on it. Moving a single face is really clever. Here's what I mean: Load a cube into the work shelf.
Select a line on the cube by using the select icons down the left-hand side.
Amos exponent Phil South looks into Amos 3D, in the first of a two-part tutorial PULL TOOL The tall button down the right of the selection icons is the Pull tool. Click on either end of this to pull the line back and forth. Click on another line or face and pull it back and forth. Notice how the shape changes.
The RGB tool is used for changing colours, allowing you to change the colours of the objects and faces on-screen. You can use the information in this requester to generate Amos palettes which are suitable for the objects. Once you have reshaped the primitives into something a little bit more interesting, you can glue them together to make other, more complex objects. This is done simply by selecting the faces that need to be glued together on the two objects; and once selected this is done automatically.
Shrink the object you just twisted about to half the size by squashing it in two dimensions. Select your object and click the Group Plus symbol. Now use the stretch shrink keys to shrink the object down.
Load another object into the other work shelf. Then select a face on that object, and a face on the previous object. With two faces iiia ¦17 selected, dick on the Glue button, and the two objects are automatically glued together.
If the blocks look funny when you do this it may be that the wrong block is being printed first. Use the Precedence Culling button to correct this.
Then you can apply surface detail - patterns in four colours which you can map to the selected face of the object. This is done by drawing lines on a grid, which are then filled before they are attached to the face of the object.
You select a face, and then open the Surface Detail tools. You draw on the grid and the detail comes out on the shape, the lines being filled. The shapes you can do with this utility are fairly elementary, but it’s surprising how little the brain needs in the way of dues to make a 3D shape look right.
Just a door cm the side of a car shape or a window in a house can make the difference between a few shapes and some recognisable objects.
• Now we’ve made a shape, next time we'll taki' it for a spin.
See you then... Head start With Amos 3D, this double-tutorial
and a copy of the original manual, you'll be incorporating 3D
objects into your own programs In no time at all.

with this first crop of reviews Amiga 3 (that's what they look like anyway). 1 regularly found myself being pushed into a comer and swamped to death by these creatures.
Having said this though, once you've killed one of them, you are rewarded by a huge splattering of blood on the floor.
Quite soon the game screen begins to take on the look of a splatter movie.
To aid and abet you in tho struggle for human supremacy are a number of meaty power-ups including more speed, shields, triple firer, missile launcher and a smart Holmes Bros Amiga 3 is a tasty magazine disk containing both games and utilities- It's been pulled together by the Holmes brothers (PD's answer to the Mario lads) and offers great value for money.
When booted in, the user is presented with a menu of the different programs on offer - games on the left, utilities and full instructions (what a nice change) on the right. Click on the desired title and you're off... • TT •
• mm- , ill llllll i 1 1 Allen Bash The film Aliens has
influenced many games from Xenomorph to Alien Breed.
Its mixture of suspense and action has obviously caught software developers' imaginations.
Enter Alien Bash, the public domain's answer to the epic Jim Cameron flick.
Viewed from above, the player has to guide his gun-wielding man round 50 scrolling levels of mayhem, rescuing prisoners captured by the aliens of the title.
These extra-terrestrials are no walk over - it took me a while to get off level one due to the constant bombardment of bouncing masses of brains inside bubbles Alter ketchup Mwf bomb that dears the screen you're on.
The prisoners that need saving are found surrounded by a shield, so frantic bashing on the Fire button ensues while all around the aliens close in. Once destroyed, simply touch the hostage and move on to the next one.
Although being the weakest game on the disk, it's still good fun. It can be extremely frustrating at times when you simply can't run quick enough to get Before... a healthy young pup ol on alien v- away from the xenomorphs and end dying horribly.
A500 owners will have to put up wl the occasional juddery scrolling but Aufl owners need not worry.
As it stands. Alien Bash is quite a joU game and does have that "one more gfl feel - a good reason to take a look Amiga 3.
Bomb Jacky 1 remember in the old days going down the software shop in Macclesfield, buyaj Bomb Jack on my Spectrum and plat the little bugger to death.
As you've guessed even with the ning use of a Y on the end of the this is a souped-up, multi-scree: scrolling, power-up toting version of t arcade classic.
The scenario hasn't changed - jun and run your way through each level a lecting all the bombs before their fuses n out and blow you to kingdom come.
Enemies are in ample supply and in various guises ranging from snails melons to mutated pacmen. Some s' follow a set path while others chase and annoy the hell out of you.
The graphics are fun if a little Calling all PD libraries... and individuals with anything remotely worth my white having a peek at. If you want something released as PD. Or you're a library with stacks of hot new stuff that you ¦aven't seen reviewed in these pages yet, why not drop me a line with a copy, full docu- “entation and everything clearly labelled. I promise I'll at least look at your work.

• or of what's on offer.
The all-important gameplay is very addictive and falls safely on the side of uilenging and not tedious.
Vingt-et’Un
• . Ou hadn't already guessed or you don't bww French,
Vingt-et-Un is a computer
- rrsion of the card game pontoon. The
* wctive is to get either as close as possi- sar to or equal 21
points without going and beat the other players effort (in this
case, tho computer).
For the gambling fanatics with no money among us, bets can be laid through the stakes columns. It's a touch unwieldy but practice makes perfect. The game is presented clearly and is easy to use so if you like the card game, you’ll love the computer version.
Doody Make no mistake - Doody is a cutesy game; a saccharin-soaked, cuddly for the kiddies' kinda title set in a coke-and-pill- ridden sewer system.
The action centres around a single screen made up of platforms! The story being that you (and an optional second player) have fallen down into the system and must work your way up through 32 levels to escape, destroying all who stand in the way.
Your orange blob of a character starts at the bottom of the screen while the enemy pour out of the pipes at the top. These are usually turtles with green shells to begin with and in later levels, the program almost sets new standards in environmental simulators with the introduction of penguins.
By moving Doody underneath the platform that the turtle is walking along, it is possible to head-butt the floor and knock our amphibian friend off his feet Next, it's a mad dash to get up onto the platform to kick him off into oblivion.
If left too long, the turtle will get up, change its colour and move even faster. To make life easier, there is a POW block at the bottom of the screen - hit it and all the creatures fall off their feet automatically and no, it's not possible to keep doing it over and over again; the player can only use it a certain amount of times.
Graphically, the game looks a little basic but there are nice touches with the animation - if you leave your character too long, he yawns and goes to sleep. The turtles, when changing colour, put on the new one as if it were a jacket. These and others add a real feel of professionalism to the title, A1200 owners will have to look out for screen corruption if they have a hard drive because it appears to interfere with the game coding in some way. The program is still playable though but it's a bit of a shame this can't rectified in some way.
Doodv is a cracking game which has Virus Free Software Everyone knows the Mr Men - Mr Tickle.
Mr Happy. Mr Messy and Miss Single Parent They played a part m most childhoods after the 60s. And Unity, the people behind this release, have obviously decided that they didn't want to squander such great material So they've produced a children's game that plays and looks like a commercial piece ot software.
The actual game centres round five different sporting events - the 100 metres, weight lifting, the hammer, pole vault and javelin throwing, Like ail sports sims. The majority of these events are performed by waggling the joystick frantically to gain speed or strength and then hitting the Fire button at the right moment to succeed The javelin, for instance, involves speeding Mr Tickle up via the joystick and when he reaches the throw line hitting the Fire button it doesn't end there - the javelin in question is actually Mr Skinny who flies through the air and the player needs to help him
further by flapping the characters arms with the controller All the levels with the exception ol the hammer throwing section work well on a simplistic level and are ideal for young children More events would have been better but the presentation, ease of use and every character looking like it's been lilted off the page of the Roger Hargreaves classics, makes this title into something a little special If you want your young s«x-year-old kids to play something a little different from the usual beat- em-up games then slip this into the disk drive - they're sure to have a good time that Bubble
Bobble Rainbow Islands feel to it, making this title the most absorbing of all those on the disk.
Atoms I've seen this kind of game on a couple of occasions and it has be said that this version is the slickest of the lot in terms of presentation.
The basic concept is this - each player (two to four) places a coloured atom each turn on the board which is basically a large grid. It's possible to place atoms in ¦ Rags to Riches Pathfinder PD If Monopoly $ your game then Rags to Riches is the ideal electronic companion. It's an original board game designed and produced on computer so you never have to worry about losing any of the pieces.
The basic idea is to make as many hotels as possible and amass large amounts of wedge. This is not a simply as it sounds - there are only a certain amount available to be built in certain locations so the players (two to four) have to rush to outdo each other.
On the path to successful building, plans, planning approval, electricity, plumbing brickwork and other factors have to be bought.
There are plenty of variables such as windfalls and gambling and the whole package works well, but unfortunately 1.
Couldn't help feeling that everything was just too random and not enough skill based. Having said that though, if you're a board game nut then this could be just up your Park Lane.
Can be spent with this smooth operator.
Overall if the Holmes Bros can keep this standard up over the next few months then Amiga disk magazine is well worthy of investment on a regular basis.
With its professionalism, fun and real value for money, Amiga 3 is a must buy.
Sonic Virus Free PD Exclusive! Sonic the Hedgehog is making his debut in the Amiga PD. Well, so it's not true, the reality of the situation is that
• I'"1* a*- Contact addresses the squares together, making them
unstable.
Once a certain number of atoms are grouped together, they explode across the board, changing everything that gets in the way to their colour.
There are various rules affecting the gameplay such as chain reactions caused by other players' atoms reacting off yours. This can lead to situations where you think the game is in the bag but the opposition's single atom is in an ideal spot to completely wipe out all your colours.
A one-on-one against the computer option would have given the game more levity but as it stands, it's a good laugh especially with four people involved.
Boot Intro Construction Set When the magazine firsts boots in, the user is presented with an intro screen containing information inside coloured strips.
BICS is the program that does this and now the same can be done to a disk of your choice. By selecting the construction set, the user is presented with a screen where it is possible to enter text and the colour of the strips themselves.
From there, install on a disk and when used next, it will flash up the desired text.
This useful for sending messages and instructions to friends on disk or simply to make the front end of a game look more attractive to the eye.
The only downer is the lack of hard disk installation but as the Boot Intro Construction Set stands, it's a effective piece of software.
H ¦rn-.B Ser“ ¦ £ » n ¦ a rim A brief review here - MWC is a program that accepts a chemical formula and returns the molecular weight. It works and if you're a scientist or anybody else with a desperate need for weighing molecules then many a merry evening Pr exfr?n?(v sirp'e to use efficient Molecular Weight Calculator mv ri-iauJly Designed as a children's educational p«H gram, this title is a slide show tracing a origins of the big bang and the subaej quent forming and creation of the plod and its wildlife.
There are about 20 slides in all contaaj ing information and reasonable lookM pictures of what happened all those am lions of years ago.
By the end of the show, which does last for very long, I wanted to see rr.ej which is a good sign but I hope the p« lishers intend to release more disks ml bundle package which go into moJ depth, If you have children or indeed if you ¦ a kid and are interested in the planet am dinosaurs then take a look at this.
This is a non-playable demo showifl Sonic strutting his stuff on (M Commodore.
The results, while not up to the Mm Drive standards, show the game com most likely be well implemented on « favourite computer but let's face it, uriJ someone, somewhere out there in the m world fancies a huge lawsuit and ccm case with Sega on their doorstep then I ain't never gonna happen.
The disk is worth getting for novtM value and the speed of Sonic's movemeJ alone, but it'll only keep your interest ¦ a couple of minutes.

Postcode _______________ Td.
If you're relatively new to the Amiga, the importance of the Video Toaster and its accompanying suite of software can't be overstated. In short, the Video Toaster is the only thing that’s kept the Amiga alive in the U5 for years.
Even more ironic than the prospect of a third party peripheral keeping a computer afloat is the fact that the software bundled with the Toaster is the only thing that's kept the card itself from a pedal bin already full of long forgotten third-part)’ peripherals.
If you managed to follow any of the above the upshot is that without Lightwave the Amiga would probably have been crushed underfoot by the relentless onslaught of IBM in the American market long ago.
NOT ALONE Although Lightwave is not alone when it comes to Toaster software, it's widely regarded as the most important element of the entire hardware software combination.
Due to the Toaster's strictly composite- only output, the card itself has been rather superseded over recent years by dedicated broadcast systems when it comes to TV and satellite - although it is still the workhorse behind countless US cable stations providing character generation, digital video effects and of course Lightwave images and animation.
Although the Toaster itself is no longer considered sufficient for broadcast applications Lightwave still provides rendering quality on a par with anything on the market.
The Light A perfect illustration of this can be seen gracing our screens right now in the form of Babylon 5 and Sea Quest DSV - both of which make extensive use of Lightwave's incredible modelling power.
To put things into perspective Lightwave has proved so popular with professional broadcasters in the States that complete toaster systems have been bought purely as a means of accessing the potential of the package - as a result the Toaster itself probably qualifies as the world's most expensive dongle.
Although this may sound unbelievable it's worth bearing in mind the cost of alternative systems like the Silicon Graphics Indigo workstations. Although Paul Austin reveals another exclusive as LightRave finally brings arguably the Amiga’s greatest ever ray tracer to Europe truly impressive, the machines can cost up to £35,000 plus another £40,000 for the associated ray tracing and animation software - add an optional £2,000 a year for tech support and upgrades and you'll see why Lightwave remains so popular.
With the extra appeal of the software over its accompanying hardware, the question has to be: Why not buy a standalone version of Lightwave and leave the Toaster for those who specifically want its additional multimedia abilities.
Unfortunately as you've probably guessed the connection between the Toaster and Lightwave isn't simply a matter of loyalty. In fact Lightwave minus the Toaster equals no Lightwave whatsoever... As a consequence that’s why the ultimate in Amiga ray tracing has never appeared in Europe. Thanks to the enforced symbiosis it has remained strictly on the wrong side of the pond.
Due to the basic design of Lightwave it insists on the presence of a Toaster - which is not only expensive but also impossible to use in a PAL environment up until recently. Why the authors of Lightwave never released the package ti other boards is probably a matter of com tractual obligation rather than indifferent but whatever the reason the end resj remains the same.
What Europe needed was some way duping Lightwave into believing a Toasu was on-board, when in fact it wasnt Enter LightRave, the dongle that does th impossible and brings Lightwave to th PAL Amiga without burning up exti cash on the somewhat mediocre atv expensive talents of the PAL Toaster.
GRATIFYING Considering the asking price associate with the LightRave and Lightwave comb nation it's gratifying lo know there's mot to it than just plugging the dongle into d serial port.
Along with the aforementioned plast accessory - which for some bizarre reasa smells of soap - you also receive a flopp which contains the LightRave control so ware, an element which must be resida before you can enter the wonderful wod of Lightwave. In addition to the dong look at the package. For now, however, we'll go on a brief guided tour and spotlight what makes the package so special.
Aside from the impressive features list which we'll look at in a moment one of the most notable aspects of the Lightwave and LightRave combination has to be the price tag which when both elements are combined add up to a rather terrifying amount. Obviously without proper testing it's inappropriate to talk about value for money - you’ll have to wait for next month for that. However the price tag does at least point to the market the new duet will be targeting.
SERIOUS In fact, even to install Lighters and more importantly Lightwave you will either need to be very serious about your modelling and animation or have an almost unbelievable excess of disposable cash.
According to the LightRave manual the software and dongle require the complete installation of the entire Toaster software collection. OK, not an unreasonable request - until you realise that the collection comes on 45 disks which in total require 110Mb of storage space.
If you're unfortunate enough to be installing on an A4000 all 46 disks are required where as only a measly 29 are essential for non-AGA machines.
Due to the rather annoying and archaic design of the Toaster installer you're only given the option to install all or nothing, a factor which is made even more infuriating when you realise that LightRave, ce associatr wave coma there's ma ngle into ta ioned plas-j izarrt* reass five a floppi control sofl t be residi- derful wori i the dong display devices supported either now or in the future by the software.
In addition the option also allows postprocessing of the 3D images even before the file is saved to disk. On the down-side, running Lightwave and ImageFX simultaneously will require a huge amount of free RAM which will no doubt negate its use for the vast majority.
In addition to simply slapping graphics onto the chosen device, the LightRave software also provides time-out control for the static image preview. Better still it's even passible to play back animation rendered directly from LightRave - a feature only previously available through the Toaster 4000 hardware.
At the moment anim5 is the only anim format available but others are promised for the future. The animation itself can appear as either Ham or Ham8 display or alternatively as a DCTV 3 or 4 bitplane image anim.
With such a big build up, it's only fair to offer at least a whistle stop tour of what all the fuss is about. However as you can probably guess, Lightwave is simply too big a package to cover in just a couple of pages.
In addition AC - unlike certain magazines - has a tradition of not only actual having a product before reviewing it, but also thoroughly testing it prior to offering a so-called exclusive.
With this in mind coverage of Lightwave will be carried onto next month in the form of a full and in-depth tfantastic e packagi natter of n indifft ie end some way ing a Toa a ct it wasr that does H twave to its accomp nying software the only jew essential is Workbench 2.04 or above
- .J at least 512k or chip and fast RAM wsoectively - although at
least 3Mb or is required to achieve any real func- wulity
Thanks to the control software the out- p«* of the program
isn't just destined for tfbe hard disk - in fact thanks to
iaduRave, Lightwave is no longer limited r the composite only
output offered by re Toaster as the program's output is
automatically redirected to the board » Amiga display of your
choice.
In fact thanks to the intervention of the
- Titrol software Lightwave will now rcn- direct to the IV24,
Retina, Opalvision, XTV, Firecracker and ECS Spectrum in
edition to standard and AGA Amiga isplays.
1 Depending on your particular set-up «l iju can configure Lightwave’s preview Aitput medium of your choice, although »r optimum speed it's also possible to wego the preview entirely in order to
w. ea little more rendering time.
If the assorted graphic cards and
i. iuga modes are not enough LightRave mo offers the option lo
render direct to VP's ImageFX image processing software.
This has two advantages. Firstly ¦jou can take advantage of
any additional Lightwave and Modeler total to less than l Mb.
In fact even if all the support files, objects and essential
fonts are copied over you still only need about 7Mb of hard
disk space.
Over the next few weeks I’ll try to unearth a more cost-effective method of installation by perhaps aborting installation after the essential Lightwave elements have been added.
Unfortunately even if it is possible to abort the install prematurely the installer interrogates your system before starting- up and will refuse to install on anything less than an 80Mb hard disk.
Even if the correct size of disk is located you will be instructed to delete a predetermined number of files to make up the shortfall. As a result at the moment the only option is to back-up your entire hard disk, install the software, delete the necessary Toaster software and re-install you system.
In addition to the potential problem of acquiring the extra hard disk space the authors and creators of the LightRave dongle have also officially stated - again via the manual - that tech support and imminent free upgrades to the LightRave driver software will only be available to those who can prove ownership of a Toaster.
UPGRADES In order to do this the registration card has an area marked Video Toaster serial number. If you do not supply the number you also won't receive information on upgrades to LightRave dongle - which may occur due to upgrades to Lightwave or the Toaster itself.
Although this isn't the kind of news the European buying public are looking for it's probably a vain attempt on the part of LightRave's developers to appease the great god NewTek - who for obvious reasons won’t be too pleased at the prospect of losing their prize milk-cow to an interloper.
In fact, so keen are Warm and Fuzzy Logic to avoid offence that one of the primary selling points of LightRave is to offer additional freedom to existing Toaster users.
This indeed is one of the benefits of the LightRave system, however telling a customer that he or she can't have tech support and upgrades for something you've sold them simply because they don’t own the very thing you've allowed them to avoid buying is the ultimate in hypocrisy.
And don't think the fault lies with Warm and Fuzzy Logic - it doesn't, The cause of all this confusion falls squarely at the feet of NewTek who through outright greed have forced would-be Lightwave users to such bizarre lengths.
Given the fact that NewTek must have made an ab-solute mint on the Toaster in recent years, why not release Lightwave - under licence - for use with other boards? That way they still receive a handsome royalty and we the underprivileged Europeans would finally get the software we want
- no strings attached.
Although the word Lightwave gives the impression of a single entity the package is in fact split into two distinct parts, namely Layout and Modeler - Unde Sam’s spelling, not ours.
On entering the software you arrive at the layout screen complete with its mandatory camera and Caligari style Cartesian plane, providing the essential feeling of perspective.
Again Caligari-esque double button mouse controls allow the viewer to zoom in and orientate the display, however this basic perspective view is only the beginning of the program's truly excellent interface.
As you can no doubt see from the screenshots, buttons are also available for the usual X,Y and Z views, but better still you can also view the scene from the camera’s point of view or that of any lights which may have been add to the scene.
The beauty of the last two options is only really revealed w'hen the chosen view is combined with the programs edit options. Again you'll see that the various View buttons are repeated in the edit section with the addition of bones and objects, As a result you can for example select the view point of a light and also select the same light as the element to be edited. As a consequence, when you now orientate your new view the object mimics the chances in real-time allowing incredibly easy and accurate adjustment and alignment of the various elements.
If you're happy with the changes you simply click on create key and the alterations are recorded Each element has its own set of keys which during animation are tweened automatically by the software using splines.
And joy of joys, each object also has its own motion graph to control speed along its individual path. In a rather dramatic and pleasant variation from the norm, characterisation of the various elements within a scene are handled during scene development, and as a result there's no need to jump between modeller and layout to adjust texture maps, backdrops and soon.
Moving on to the layout screen, where you're confronted with an imagine Real Classic-style tri or quad view depending on your particular preference, In a slight break from tradition, the various edit controls on the left of the screen evolve according to choice of mode selected at the top.
As a result there're no tedious treks through pull-down menus to find the appropriate feature and perhaps more importantly screen refresh is kept to an absolute minimum.
When it comes to model design and handling, the format is very similar to Imagine Real Classic with the only m*ifl exception being the ability to use layers each of which can hold diffetefl objects.
These layers can then be freest exchanged to update the screen with. J new object and more importantly la «*l can interact to perform various merge *M Boolean operations with one object be M used as a cutting tool on another!
Although not essential, the optional qail view has a particularly nice touch in tel form of a fourth perspective view.
Unlike Imagine you're not forced t: use sliders to orientate the fourth winds* I
- in fact you can grab the object ufl manipulate the model in
real-time, an; r| that's not enough you can even choose *1 have
the object constantly swivel from Ml to right to enhance the 3D
effect.
As for tools and edit options, the avtel able selection is nothing short of breath j taking with seemingly everything thMi Imagine 3.0 promise and seemingly afij that Real3D v2 provides at present - ml j the only possible exceptions being com sion detection and gravitational effects Although a rather sweeping statem* j considering my limited exposure to thrf package it only proves the infection* enthusiasm that Lightwave generates.
MASSIVE It's by no means an accident that] Lightwave has become massive rigiM across the US and beyond. Although sev- j eral years of ray tracing experience tel help. I've hardly ever needed to resort« the manual for advice - even wh«l exploring features that are totally new *1 me.
During Amiga reviews, the phrawi intuitive is used with gay abandon -J sometimes without cause. In the case dn Lightwave 3.0 the word couldn't be mc«l at home. Nine times out of ten using m new feature is simply a matter of pickmrf the most obvious approach - and piam times out of ten you'll be right.
Like many Amiga enthusiasts I'nl become thoroughly sick of the sycophaM tic coverage that the Toaster and] Lightwave have received over the years *1 many European magazines - given the] fact that none of them have ever eved seen it in action.
However after only a brief exposure v this package I’m already hooked. Tune «1 next month for the in-depth review, wJ then my initial rush of enthusiasm shouid| have worn off and we'll reveal if all of cm expense and hassle is worth the effort.

' C« SEND YOUR ORDER TO., WE ACCEPT ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARDS DISKOVERY, DEPT (AC), 108 THE AVENUE, CLAYTON, BRADFORD, W YORKS BD146SJ snoop. For those unfamiliar with the term Applcon it simply means that the program waits in the background while a small window remains on the Workbench screen ready to be double clicked into life or fire up automatically as files are dropped over the icon.
Unfortunately the version on test did show the odd bug when it came to dumping files directly onto the icon, however a bug fix is promised prior to shipping in the UK.
Whether you prefer to double click or drop, the end result is much the same with the main program screen opening ready to accept various details concerning the name, format and placement of the file or files in question.
DIRECTORIES In the case of both compression and expansion, source and target directories are defined, a rename applied and the compression ratio or decompressed file format specified.
Although this sounds a lengthy process, 90 per cent of the information is added by a series of pop-up requesters necessitating simple point and click decision making.
Like most file intensive software, pattern matching is well supported in addition to fairly extensive Arexx support. As for the processing options, you're given the opportunity to process either individual preselected files or batch process complete directories - with the options to include sub directories.
Once defined, another click initiates processing with the end results being created in Ithough the )peg tile format has brought unrivalled image com- , pression to the hard pressed ‘.aiga. it’s largely remained the domain of power users with the financial muscle to I expensive Jpeg compatible software t as ADPro, ImageFX and ImageMaster.
With the arrival of the AGA chipset the nttle between space and quality did ¦prove, however even with the assistance
* Hi-res interlaced HamS's some quality is I sacrificed for a
space saving of roughly 9 per cent over the average IFF 24.
n addition to expense associated with keg, accessibility was and still remains a rroblem with the vast majority only except- rg 24-bit data in an IFF form.
Once again the need for expensive image processing software is reaffirmed with its Heritable demands on system resources and time - as each Jpeg is forced through the sometimes lengthy processing procedure
• very time an image was stored or decompressed.
Thankfully Pegger should finally put both the financial and time constraints associated with Jpeg to the sword, thanks to a degree of automation which is unsurpassed tv any other Amiga graphics utility.
Like the majority of recent releases, Workbench 2.0 or above is an essential for jr.vone planning to use Pegger. In addition it least 2Mb of RAM are required, along with a hard disk.
The need for Workbench 2 is soon apparent on boot-up as the program leaps into action with three Applcons offering compression, decompression and the essential A
- f®= Urn May iwnl fEBf!_ JUL Pmorttv ligmund h ican _*!•»“! I
Bil' 1 Hyp J • | thnlduMi Cry* I «xh j compression or
decompading is required.
Fortunately the third Applcon in the Pegger collection provides the ability to assign automatic processing to specific directories. As a result any software can load Jpeg files regardless of whether the package supports the format.
Better still, the same software will now also have developed the ability to write Jpeg files. In truth the software is exactly as before, but thanks to Snoop set-up, Pegger will now keep a constant watch on a predefined compression directory.
INTERCEPTED As a result any IFF 24s heading for this director)’ will be intercepted by Pegger and automatically compressed with to a predefined ratio and saved out with the appropriate file appenda.
As for decompression, the format is pretty similar, with Pegger jumping in to convert a Jpeg into any one of the formats mentioned above whenever a file is requested - regardless of which package is trying to load the file.
It's even possible to assign the automatic compression and decompression to the same director)-. As a result programs like Imagine could save 24 bits to the directory - which would then be intercepted and converted to Jpegs - while Dpaint could load the newly created Jpeg file, at which point Pegger would intercept once more transforming the Jpeg to a Ham8, DCTV or IFF 24.
Aside from a brief pause during the conversion process, Pegger's intervention is completely transparent. And courtesy of its fairly minimal system requirements it can be left in the background to convert the output of ray tracers and modellers automatically.
As for a final analysis, it's hard to complain about a unique package which offers a fast and reliable cure for the problem of 24-bit storage. Aside form the slight bug which is already under repair Pegger is the ideal utility for the Amiga's 24-bit generation of artists and animators, E3 addition to the original file or as a direct replacement. Thankfully file replacement is far more subtle than simply loading converting and overwriting the original file within its parent director)’.
In fact, Replace will even delete the original file while copying the newly compressed Jpeg into a completely different directory - adding a new name or appenda in the process. In the case of compression this will obviously mean Jpeg files, however when it comes to decompression the end results can be either DCTV 3 4 - with or without an optional filtering, IFF 24s, Ham8s or the Video Toasters very own Framestore format.
Regardless of which direction the file is heading, the aforementioned pattern matching can be employed to filter the wheat from the chaff while optional smoothing can be applied to decompressed Jpegs if necessary.
Although both standalone elements offer relatively painless file processing, there’s a distinct lack of automation as at least some input is still required from the user whether Expand deliver Automatic Jpeg compression and expansion courtesy of Pegger.

Dave commented on his link with Virgin's adventure: Tm always interested in telling stories in words and pictures ond Beneath a Steel Sky is like on interactive story with animated pictures. It seems to be a very logical evolution of storytelling' Said Revolution Director Charles Cecil: 'With Beneath a Steel Sky we spent a year designing it before any programming was done During that year Dave Gibbons taught us a lot.
'We believed that combining our skills could produce something really special, something ground-breaking, and it has. Beneath a Edutainment Express Mindscope have just released a new Morio title on the Amiga.

Really no amount of words will ever be able to justify Micro Mochines - ta proof is in the playing. It's simple in design, simple in the graphic department, but highly playable and highly addictive SIMON CLAYS Machines (well OK, so if was eight words). But I con'l do this because it would be a very blank poge and yours truly would be bock in the queue with ta otar mlions!
All right, there is slightly more to it than has been mentioned thus far, so without ony further digression let's spit it out.
Micro Mochines puts you in the tiny driving seat of a wide variety of different miniature vehicles.
These vory from power boats through to combat tanks, Formula One Grand Prix cars and helicopters Now stroight away you're probably jumping to ta same conclusion most do, that this is nothing new; a race around ta old tormoc in cars and boats viewed from the top, But this is where you're wrong because the main novelty aspect to Micro Aaochines are the Irocks. Rather than your typtcd road scenario, ta courses are set over such things as breakfast tables, bathtubs, workbenches and porches.
Sounds odd but it works a treat. Ifs really very entertaining having to guide your dune bvggy around a track composed of Rice Krispies, avoid- ina the beans and trying your hardest not to skid off ta table doth into oblivion.

Last Christmas one of the many toys to tote the British public by storm were the Micro Machines.
This ronge of miniature vehicles were billed os detailed models of the genuine article yet small enough to fit on your little finger These days where tare's any scope to market a product further, you can bet your bottom dollar that the companies responsible will. Guess what, this is precisely whot happened with the Micro range.

As wo crouched around the fire fa other night discussing todies, I drifted into a slumber and dreamed we were all space marines.. There we were, a letbol squad of terminators aboard the Spoce Hulk, our mission to destroy the genesfeders before deadline.
Our mission briefing commenced, with a morale-boosting message from the emperor, Bloomers 'After you've carried those boxes over to the silo, I'd like you to infiltrate the Spoce Hulk and terminate the dreaded enemy.1 BRIEFING Sitting there, quaking in my oversized Burtons spocesuit, my expression drooped further as our squod leader continued his briefing.
'Right, we've got no choice, it’s our job.
Anyone who complains I’ll personally take out to the fighting tree and beat seven shades Out of them, so no whinging, let's get on with if! Any comments?'
From the comer of the room a timid hand slowly broke the line of stooped heads h was technical officer Colon, trembling os he spoke.
'I think it would be a aood idea if we were all o bit quieter..' he stuttered, odjusling his fluorescent shoulder band.
Before anyone could comment he was floored, Gladiators are you ready?
Terminators Akno t of1 Marine Chopters hove lerminator suits. Usually o d they've been passed down the ages and ore covered in tbe scors of bottle. Only the best marines are bestowed the honour of using the armour.
Along with ihts honour comes extra training and effective technology for battle. All suits contain life support systems, bio scon nets, enetgy scanners auto sensors and targeted Genestealers A horror of teeth and (lows, the G -nt .-ccter is fa perfect biological killer.
They know no ftar and feel no remorse
3. D hove one prime directive; to multiply
c. ifl survive one fatal blow from hard ex-con Daiza Biggs. I
gulped hard and quickly storied moving boxes with my Gomer
coleogue Biff I don't recall how long we lumped parcels into
the silo, but that's dreams for you. Time seemed on impossible
quantity to measure, everything became translucent and before
I knew it we were assembled at the main entrance to the
Hulk.
The hardest, finest set of marines this side of Macclesfield and me I eyed them one by one, looking into tho steely grit of their vacant pupils.
Squod leader Ste-Vee, a veteran with psychopathic tendencies Big Ozzie, second in command, q huge beast of a man and not to be trifled widv Buttux, a brutal individual with masochistic tendencies towards the young or infirm.
Then come Dazza Biggs, wanted in four sepa- rate stor systems for felonies ogainst the state.
Next in line Choons Morse, who wears o sound system in battle and goes into a blood letting frenzy to the sound of a bone-crunching piano line.
Following him, A-Dum, whose voyeuristic desires hod led nim to take vid-shots of oil he friend or foe.
As Biff (who's by far the youngest) and myself took our ploces in line, we exchanged o nervous glance and waited.
DARK RECESSES The silence was abruptly broken by the dulcet bark of Ste-Vee “Biff, Clays, lead the assault!1' I swallowed hard and nervously cocked the fir ing pin on my Bober. Its sound resonated around the Hulk like the drop of the hangman's noose, cold and final.
The doors of the hulk slid open and a cold wind blew at our vison. Simultaneously we both gulped, then stepped forword into the gloomy half light, shaking Seeing the fright in our petrified eyes the others laughed, and taunted us as we switched to radio contact only Amid the noise of the intercom abuse, the others fell back and we explored the dark recesses of the corridor. It smelled, fa stench of deoth lingering on the mouldy walls.
Aheod a bend in fa passage and the prospect of trouble. We don’t want to move but we must. Every muscle and fibre in our bodies locked out with tension, teling us not to proceed further, but there's no choice The corner looms, the trigger finger shakes nervously and eyes burn into the darkness searching for shopes. Then from nowhere, a screech and it's on you, violating your space. Four clawed arms scratching and tearing with no remorse. We scream but if s to no avail.
A red hue deepens over my sleep and suddenly I’m drawn from lody Morphine's world, slumped in front of a frosty monitor in fa Comer igloo.
Here's your set of likely 1*4*. Tooled up to the Rising to my feel I’m suddenly filled with and the realisation fat this dream has to an introduction which both sets the shows some of the otmosphere that generates.

transfers you to a control screen, where team orders can be
given Here icons allow you to order your squad members to
move, open and dose doors, and most importantly, put down fire.
Another feature is overwatch mode. This odds on extra dimension of intelligence to your team and should be treated os a default mode for moving.
For example, when one of your marines is following your orders and something attacks him, it would be quite natural for him to react - over- watch implements this for you automatically Obviously with five or even ten marines of your disposal, planning and orders can take quite a while, so a freeze time facility is included Unfprtynotely for you, freeze time is limited so you can't take a light year deliberating over strategy However, the longer you ploy in red time, the quicker your freeze time builds up again.
Once you've completed the tutorial, there are over 50 missions lo pit your wits ogomst, including the ominous Death wing campaign.
In ihe Deofhwing compaign you con moke the decision Over which squod to take into bottle ond which type of weaponry you foncy kitting your Terminators out with.
There are 12 in total and they vary from the rocket-shelled Bolter through to the highly effective Heavy Flamer.
Once you've established how to control Spoce Hulk, it becomes a fairly atmospheric, oddictive title. All right, it drags most of its inspiration from Aliens, but it's for you to decide whether that's a good thing or not.
Most of the Hulks are very similar in style and the graphics aren’t that well rendered. However, they're effective enough and coupled with the moody soundtrack give enough of an overall effect.
The main problem with Spoce Hulk is that it realty is difficult The Genesteders move quicker than Sooty would do if Harry Corbett's hand was cryogenically frozen This makes for long periods of depression and desperation, until you master how to defect them effectively.
Far worse though is the amount of disk accessing you have lo go through and the fact dial the program isn't hard drive installable You might think t'm being pedantic, but after the seventh mission failure it starts to grate a little, You've spent a total of 45 seconds getting annihilated and 35 minutes disk swapping to the sound of something off Scooby Doo.
This aside though, once you've mostered the control you'll really get into Spoce Hulk and find it oddictively chofcnging for a long while SIMON CLAYS SUIC OC MISSION It ,y rV : 131 Stardust 0 you remember the eody days of computer games? Do you remember a popular wirrframed arcodecum-pub classic, Asteroids?
There won't be many who haven't seen some or other version of this landmark in the annals of software history. I have vivid memories of entering my locol tavern in an attempt to do bottle with wire- framed UFOs and the outlines of large chunks of rock, This was no mean feat as to play my favourite stand-alone piece of high technology, I hod to get poss toe disconcerting eyes of the landlord.
The lengths to which this reviewer went to as 0 young man just to satiate his desire for electronic moyhem were quite disturbing.
Preparation would begin some five days before my sticky coinage got anywhere near the slot of the machine. The golden rule was to appear mature; this was perfected by exercising o tight regime of not shaving.
No matter how much the scratching and itching persisted, shaving must be avoided. With this in mind, it wos imperative to avo*d the cat who would inevitably lick my bum-Buff off Preparation also involved stealing Dod's aftershave, saving school dinner money (expenses) and giving my boyish anatomy as much room as possible to keep my voice os low os wos feasibly achievable - light pants were definitely a no no.
Let's take a stroll down memory lane and look at this Swedish Asteroids dene which has received a complete lick of 90s paint Before all the planning Ut in ploce, the big night would be upon me. Approoching the bar surreptitiously, with ol the swogger ond poise of someone at least 18,1 would order my pint of insipid bitter, then disappear off to the orcade mochine, not even touch the beer ond regress to the mental oge of a four-year-old, blosting to my heort's content.
But that was then and this is now, and the industry hos come a long way. However, it seems that the Amiga is about to be pushed that little bit further by Finnish programmers Bloodhouse Published under the Doze umbrello, Stardust is a spectacular version of the old Asteroids theme The basic object is to dear the screen of asteroids and enemies while collecting oil the bonuses ond power-ups While it's o very simple game in essence, there is
o tiny sub-plot. An evil professor has taken it upon himself to
destroy the golaxy in its entirety and kidnap the beautiful
princess Vo*, To this end he has cunningly disguised his top
agents as meteors which he's dispatched to go on the rampoge.
Dental, the main thing the Bloodies (as we shall now call them) have been screaming about is that Stardust pushes the Amiga through new boundaries in graphical capabilities They’ve employed a ray tracing technique as You play the do gooding chisel- chinned hero in your big manly pointy spoce ship, whose task it is to blow everything to pieces OK, so there's the plot which really is purely inci- computers. Stardust also uses 32 colours in toe overscan mode. The programme has taken o full year to complete and much of its hi-tech development is down to Bloodhouse's chief programmer, He wos
formaly responsible for the development of Reol 3D, possibly the best ray tracing pockoges available on the Amiga.
Haywise, there are dozens of Asteroids-looko like levels to do bottle in. After the successful clearance of eoch planet, you play o sub game as you travel to your next destination.
This is one of the most impressive routines ever to run on the AMIGA and really does push its circuits to toe limit.
It's a fost rolling, mego-scrolling shoot-'em-up blitz which left all of us completely qa-ga. Realty the screenshots don't do this aspect of Stardust any justice - playing is believing.
The other great thing is that it comes at the bar- lin price of £16.99, though it's not o budget title ony means Stardust is goina to go down as the definitive Asteroid clone lor toe Amiga. If s visually brilianl.
Sounds great and plays superbly.
Tbe idea's a simple one, but works very effectively ond ot this bargain price, Stardust is unmissable. Now, you really can show off to all your motes who own consoles...

Over fa years, Psygnosis hove produced some of the best and most ground breaking games you're ever likely to see. Shadow of the Beost, The Killing Gome Snow, Amour-Geddon, Lemmings, Hired Guns - fa list is endless, For o while though, everything went a bit astray with the releases of Ork, Leander, Cytron, Aquoventura, and Air Support. Every single one was a bit of a stinker and it looked os though the Psyggies were simply biding their time until fa release of Lemmings 2.
I am now proud to announce the re-lounch of Liverpool's finest software house In production at the moment are Second Samurai, Microcosm and Armour-geddon 2. The first off the production line is Combat Air Patrol.
Sharp-eyed readers will notice that we odually reviewed it almost seven months ago, but then it was struck by production problems ond fa game designers decided to make some improvements.
Combat Air Patrol b npw in fa shops, so we felt it was only fair to re-review it for new reoders and those wno might hove missed it first time around.
The game is o flight simulation accurately based around fa F U Tomcat ond fa F-18 Hornet, ond to top it oil off it's set in fa time of the Gulf War, Tne primary objective is fa explosion ol enemy forces from within fa pre-invasion boundaries of Kuwait. This where fa game starts to mix reality with fantasy as you take control of the coalition forces It's up to you just how important any follow- Psygnosis's new flight sim looks like their best product for a long while. Jonathan Maddock adjusts his flaps and takes a look If you utter the word Psygnosis fan you'll more often that not get someone
saying *oh, fat company from Liverpool who did Lemmings'.
Lemmings is a classic piece of software, but unfortunately it has dwarfed Psygnosis as o happen to be f This can be done in two ways. The first is to select a training mode, which allows novice ond experienced pilots to fine-lunc fair skills in a large number of oreas. Flight training and weapons training against both air and ground targets ore offered to test ond practise your skifls in all oreas of combat The second way is the single mission option which allows an indrvedual plane against a single selected toroet Both air ond ground attacks are available although your role on a mission will
depend on which type of mission you selected There are 13 missions to choose from to test out your skills OS a pilot. These range from train busting to runway strafing to Scud strip Whichever you decide upon you con guaraflfl fat it's pocked Ml of action.
Once you’ve mastered fa flying technique 1 can start fa full campaign which is what Cadjfl Air Patrol is all about. The campaign secticr «wj too lengthy to go into major details about, W 41 basically take over the role of NonJ Schwortzkopf os well os Hying your two battle. This section is terrifyingly realistic one Uk keep you go»ng for months on end!
But the best part of the gome has to be tj actual flight simulation where you get fa chanaJ leap into a F-18 or F-14 and declare war or w enemy.
As you enter the cockpit, you see fa cord* and instrument panels, fa outside world, the cockpit windows, and the HUD (Heod I Display) upon which some flight and dl conaij information is displayed.
Because fare are two planes, you have to «a what they do. Both the Tomcat and the Hoi shore o number of controls and instruments Gansu essenriol (or any aircraft. These instruments, as altimeters and speed indicators, may ¦o*e*er be displayed in a slightly different vmy, often using a variation upon a standard (ravnent.
Won't bore you will hundreds of fiddly little arc s obout the gome, but will instead answor this aefcat: Whot mokes Combat Air Patrol different and belter than all the other flight sims available r re morket?
Well, for starters Combat Air Patrol doesn't :• or feel like another flight sim. Even after just 7M go il seems fresh, new and exciting ond puts cne others to shame There a many nice touches, such as the radio.
s allows contact with the oirbose and other rendfy units who keep you informed of campaign Mrts os they unfold. This is very well done ond r ily realistic and it’s all thanks to a few samples The graphics are particularly impressive with ome brilliant views, such as the flypast view literally takes your breath away every time turn it on.
The views are worth mentioning because you
* em to be able to look at your aircraft ond others
* om just about any angle imaginable.
The outside graphics are perhaps a bit sparse, out I suppose that's because they're fighting in the jrsert where only camels and huts exist, ly Ini personally think that some flight sims are 0 bit Flight roster or our stewardess' address book, who knows?
¦¦¦ stuffy and for too technical for their own good, but Combat Air Patrol has been a pleasant surprise.
The manual is nice and easy to reod and comes complete with a sheet with numbered instructions on how to fight in the air, shoot things on the ground ond more importantly how to take off! One of ihe most impressive factors hoi to be the speed and smoothness at which Combat Air Patrol runs. I played it on the A1200, but it was just as impressive on the A500. I couldn't find fault with it, ond os o reviewer it's not often that I find a "perfect* game. I could drone on ond on for hours about Combat Air Patrol, especially os I'm not normally the type of person lo really be impressed by this sort
of game, but suffice to soy that Combat Air Potrol is g bit specif, and flight fanatics should check it out immediately.

Get down, Shep!
Tastically different from ony other cutesy plot former.
So in the end. Recommended for dedicated platform followers only, whkh is a shame becouse this is the best looking plotformer I've played in ages Maybe with a bit of extra thought placed in it gamepby department it could've appealed more but it turns out nothing more than an averoge romp.
JONATHAN MADDOCK The mid ond end-of-level bosses are massive and ogain hove been sketched to perfection.
The tunes are heavily loaded wilh a tremendous bit of bass playing and ot no point do you feel like reaching for the volume switch to turn it down. Actuol in-gome sound effects ore very sparse, but those which are in there ore more than sufficent Wonder Dog is going to be one of those platformers that will either interest or infuriate you. Some gamers might not like the control system because as times ky fall platforms through no fault of your own. The controls (or me though were just fine and sim| added to the lenge of the gome.
Core's plat- former is extremely hard end the loter levels are not for ihe fainthearted or the beginner.
Wonder Dog will last you quite a while, but it is not fancrystal blue waters and this is where Wonder Dog must begin his bosk training. On this first level our doggy chum is plagued by oil manner of dangerous creatures. Fluffy bunnies, swooping ducks, spiky hedgehogs ond wily foxes ore all out to stop him in his prime.
The pup with dse floppy ears must collect as many of the bonuses and power-ups as possible in order to A increase his score and more importantly gain extro lives On his *walkies*.
Wonder Dog will find various items that he con pick up. These include wings for energy, jewels that will give him extra points, bones (if he collects 100 he will gets an extra Fife), whirlwinds for shortterm invincibility and smileys which reveal hidden platforms that leoa lo secret bonus levels.
Wonder Dog is a good little plotformer, but is by no meons a clossic. The graphics are magnificent, wonderfully drown and well animated.
If you Kod lo name s formers, I con bet that you'd scribble i Chuck Rock as one of your favourites, Chuck Rock, which was created by Core Design, was a playful romp through the prehistoric ages The game's graphics shone out. They were drawn in a very cortoon-like style, but still man- oged to look good on the monitor screen The animation wos top-no*ch ond you found yourself displaying cheesy gnn after cheesy grin ot the slapstick antics of Chuck and his enemtos.
Mr Rock proved to be a big seller for Core Design, and they are pinning their hopes on ileir next gome to do ibe same. Wonder Dog is a conversion from o certain console mochine called the Mego CD (hence the name!), but don't let that put you off!
This ihe point of the review where we turn into Jockanory for a lew brief paragraphs. Are you sitting comfortably children? Good, then I shall begin General Von Ruffbone and his loyal army of vicious dog troopers ore sweeping, achieving total galocte domination in their wake.
As the enemy approocbes the tranquil planet K9, o young pup is hastily injected with the top secret Vonoer' serum ond kwnched into space in
o bone capsule.
Crashing to earth light years later, Wonder Dog must mature and develop his fighting skills by completing the sevon perilous levels, gaining the required combat skills ond defeating adversaries in order to return and save his planet from anihilation.

The graphics are perhaps some of the finest seen in an RPG and really give the whole product a polished and professional led The oction centres around the exploits of a band of five brave and heroic odven- turers os they try to kill o shady and powerful figure colled Krough, Krough, who hos slowly grown rich ond powerful ond built a temple (the Ishar) on the Kingdom's borders, threatens the world of Kendorio. The wodd has decided that you and your band of warriors should rightfully dispose of him.
Ishar - Legend of the fortress boats over 100,000 locations and hundreds of enemies ond characters. The game uses a flexible, uncomplicated and user friendly control system which mokes it simple and fun louse.
This is a truly great odventure ond one that any half-decent RPG fan could not do without. It may look and play like Dungeon Master, but Ishor is terrific in its own right ond is by for the best piece of software in this Dreamlands compilation.
Ignore it at your peril!
Tvansarctica It's not every doy you get up out of bed ond find that the planet Earth has been completely frozen overt Welt, thot is whot hos happened in Tronsordka.
The sun can no longer be seen and hos become a mystical heavenly body.
Apart from the re-emergence of the woolly mammoth, the only means of transport is Ihe steam train. The Viking Union have complete control over the immense railway network ond thus they monopolist all means of transport, giving them unquestionable outhority.
You play the part of Chief of the Ambivolents, a set of curious beings who seek out the old myths of the sun. Your mission is to find a way to restore the sun to the world.
The Viking Union is none too pleased about this foct because if the sun reappears they'll lose power ond a whole lot of money to boot. The Ambivolents’ greatest victory to date is the tfwEt ol one of the Viking Union's greatest trains, the Tronsorctko.
To progress successfully you must build up the size ortd strength of the Tronsorctico. Additional wagons con be bought ond extra money can be gained by trading. You must olso ovoid the bottle trains of the Viking Union ond other hazards such as wolves.
Tronsorctico is rcolly a trading game that contains only o small hint of arcade action, The graphics ore excellent and the sound is adequate enough. I guess that if you like trading gomes then you'll love Tronsarctka. It is well worth spending a few hours on and is a worthy inclusion into this compilation.

With the shield on you will be completely invulnerable to alien attacks.
Once a planet has been cleared, you ore presented with a mop of Ihe solar system. By using the joystick you hove to guide the cursor to the next planet you want to conquer. You start the gome with five ships and a small amount of shield. An extra ship ond extra shield are awarded every 25,000 points.
That's bosicolly everything you n«d to know simply because Overkill is perhaps one of the most uncomplicated games you're ever likely to meet. For the moment forget obout the compari fort to.Defender and let's concentrate on the actual game itseif.
Overkill Is an appropriate name for the game becoittl there ore ioods of enemies to kill and at times there ore perhaps just too mcny to cope with, The graphics are particularly impressive with alien guh flying around the screen in cbun dance plus there are same psychedelic introduction screens to bool lyeoh man!’.

Fact that it is a Defender clone ond the people who like to keep an eye on those pennies might not want to splosh out on it.

that's the low-down for this vastly underrated isometric
odventyre originally from Millennium. The game uses a unique
real time adventure system which con all be controlled via
the use of some icons ond the mouse.
It is completely open-ended. You ore free to do anything you like, wherever ond 'whenever you wgnt, If yov e really lazy, you con simply do nothing, but hey thaf s not really the point of the game, is it?
The other characters oil move GameR about independently and hove little lives of their own. You con talk to these other people or just listen in on conversations, thanks to the real speech interaction feature.
I have always liked Robin Hood and am surprised that many software buyers dtdn'f actually realise how good it was The graphics are small, but well defined. The sound is atmospheric wi i a few choice sound effects dropped in here and there, The gomeplay is its best feature, though, and you con spend many hours just exploring Robin Hood1 s world and having fun at the sume time. If Robin Hood poised you by when it was released m

Vjwodoys there isn’t o day that goes by without the mention of a brand new all singing, all-doncing modem hi-tech flight sim.

It didn't used to be like that, though In ye olden times pilots depended on their flying skills to stay alive, as is very well demonstrated in Knights ol the Sky.
You get the chance to fly every major fighter that was used in WW! (over 20, in fact!). There were no radars or missiles in those days; you were sot down in an old heap of a plane with a Composs in one hond, the yoke in the other, your finger on the trigger and a pair of naff leather ponts wrapped around your legs.
In Knights' you get the chance to ploy either the port of Tommy or Jerry. You can try your hand at one of the hundreds of missions available including ground support, bombing ond escort duties, or you can toke to the skies in a heod-to-heod dogfight with an opposing 'oce' pilot.
Graphically Knights' is fantostic, with 13 dazzling 3D perspectives to choose from to watch your victory or failure in the air The gomeplay is basic (as you’d might expect| but still retains a wonderful sense of playability and a freshness which mokes the so-called modern flight sims look rather stole.
Flight fanatics looking for something different should seriously consider buying this brilliant sim : Links • Kixx XL • £16*99 Over the years diere hove been many golf games. Some have been very good while most hove been bloody awful One thing you can say about all of them is the standard of graphics hot never been particularly good Our PC-owning chums have hod it good on tho* front with realistic digitised graphics ond sound.
Links on the Amiga, just like its PC counterpart, contains some stunning graphics with oduof digitised trees and buildings and an incredible 30 contoured terrain Ihe gome designers have tried to moke it the most realistic golf game ever. Accurate physics of flight and impoct of the golf ball have been included into the program. You can odjust the golfer's stance, swing plane and just about evervthina down to the colour of your fee That all sounds well and good, but unfortunately it it just too realistic ond this mokes the game* ploy rather dire. The graphics, because they are digitised, take
oaes to update and this just creates boredom. I could recommend this to the dedicated golf fan, but everyone else should stay well deor ALFRED CHICKEN Take control of the fowl on the prowl in Mindscape's latest cluck*tastic egg-stravaganza. Let's find out whether Alfie's a prime Bernard Matthews bird or a sparrow's ankle Only one man - well, chicken - can save the egas, ond that1 s AH. As the only feathered friend wrth o bfonic beak, Alf hos to battle through 11 levels of performing mayhem.
As Alf pecks his way through the various levels he is rewarded for his bravery. For instance, releasing all the balloons on eoch level takes the feotared one to Mr Pekle's space lab where he is given extra points.
Also, if Alfred keej beady eye out and col lects o hundred of many bonuses which lie oround, Mr Pekle rewards him with an extra life.
Not only does ta landoori’d one have bonuses to aid him, tare ore series of devices to give him o hand.
Springs, for example, propel Alf to higher port of ta stage - when he these you could coll him o spring chicken (ooh, rotten egg joke - Ecfl.
There are eta buttons Ip peck which occess other parts of ta level, and ice blocks which can be pecked for similar outcomes.
Unfortunately for Alfred, there are also quite a selection of enemies within the employ of the Meka-Chickens and most of them ere pretty nosly. These include underwater whales, o Jock-in- polls nave Wishin' I was ducky Number of Alfred remaining Bonus time remaining Number of diamonds remaining 4 Score What can you say, we've hod them all! Ninja ants from another dimension, frogs with superhero-coped powers, fish that ore secret agents and now a bloody chicken life in the ever surreal computer industry gets stranger still.
Ifsgot to ihe stage now where this reviewer is no longer surprised when the nutter sits next to him on ihe bus asking if you've seen his camel, because you probably have. You just nod and exclaim ‘’donkey*, without so much as o shrug of the shoulders.
Whof some would describe os hallucinations are passed off as normal day-to-day occurrences. A six foot squirrel? No worries. A crocodile in a morning suit? Doesg't raise a second glance, but a chicken called Alfred who enters a by-election?
Why is it colled Alfred? To me that seems on odd name for a chicken. Never mind ve fact that this chicken hod political ospirotions - why Alfred2 Chickens are colled Clucky or Chucky not Alf.
Atthe end of ihe day however, if ** H*"1 day pondering over such dilemmos tan nothing would get done and we'd all end up with fried brains, so witaul further ado let's get into the plot.
The plot's pretty simple. The Meka-Chickens have whisked off with Billy Ego and his brothers.
The sole purpose of their fiendish egg-napping is to carry out their devilish cloning experiment.
The-bomb who fires bombs out bis mouth, o bifchy lodybird wbicb can't be trusted ond a whole host of others.
Looking on the phis s»de, Alfred hos o fair few power-ups of his own to collect Keep your eyes open for a can o’ worms which gives Alf a spinning, monster-killing worm, ond wrapped up presents which make the breasted one invincible for a while.
Of course we con't forget Alfie's own bionic beak which, when put into peck mode or used in a nose dive, is very effective ogoinst the foes.
As platformers go, Alfred Chicken ranks Cfiite highly. He’s definitely in the size-one-free-range- ranking. The graphics are slick, well animated and cartoony rotar them cutesy.
There's also o fair splattering of humour ducking around. For example, when Alfred meets an untimely roosting at the hand of the Meka- Chickens he explodes into feathers which then proceed to float to the ground.
Alfred Chicken has a great deal to offer gamers whether platform fans or not. It's far better than most of the overage chicken-run-of-the-mill stuff (hat gets pumped at us doily. No-one con ecJ the silly name, but don't be put off - it’s o ¦olished egg-stremely addictive title fhc-B you crowing and clucking until dawn f: m rooster.

If you examine the budget charts of recent months, you'll see o whole stream of Team 17 product: on enhanced version of Project-!, Alien Breed Special Edition and a remixed Assassin have oil sold in boxloads.
They've also found tremendous success with their selection of recent cheap priced new releases like F-17 Challenge and Qwak. Both of these products featured smart play at less than half the price of other software companies.
This is as neat a juncture as is necessary to meet their latest product to receive the Team 17 energy injection.
Cardiaxx was originally released by Electronic Zoo some time ago, receiving mixed reviews and featuring little in the way of true game action. The boys from Wakefield saw potential and have given it the treatment.
Cardiaxx is a no nonsense blaster set strangely enough in spoce in the future. Taking on the role of Pope (a hordened Hon Solo type astro-jock), you blast off from the surface of the planet surface to take on the might of on alien fleet. The scab are tipped heavily out of your favour, but i if anyone can perform mira- i des then it's you - or so the I manual would hove you f believe.

Once you've seen off various types of centipede ond other suchlike aliens, there’s o minx of a level guardian to contend with.
Also at the end of each level there's o special Deep-Spoce bonus zone where the aim is to eradicate as many of the pesky vermin os possible in a given time.
Your ship also has the ability to have its weapon system upgraded, If you take fa too long over the task in hand it's curtains far you ond your ship is destroyed.
Unlike many space shoot-'em-ups 8 where your ship con absorb only one enemy shot or be involved in one colision, Cordiaxx which is quite use* ful, os mony of the nasties require special hits or large scoie damoge.
Along with the power ups, there'arc also bonuses in the shope of extra time which prove very handy: time is extremely tight throughout. On the «fcw Cardiaxx isn't a bad update into the ninete although it's not the best thing to come out of kr' stable. The graphics are presentable and pre* smooth, but they're never going lo make you itm over your monitor like Project-X did.
However, for the budget price of a tod undo; tenner I don't think anyone's got any grounds fa complaint. Cardiaxx ploys fairly well and com never be described as a slow paced affair.
In fact, if there's one slight criticism it’s a Me to fast and the control never enables you to reafa your ship motionless. Attempting to slow results at inverting to travel in the opposite direction, vAe con be qvite annoying until yog master your pip control.
Cardiaxx reminds me very much of the shoa 'em-ups from the eighties; straightforward, no hoe barred blasting with few complications ond sfato gies. Though it’s not their best effort of fate, far: tenner it’s got to be worth it.

Published by Ri Zool is perhaps one of the best platform characters that home computer gamers have seen for many a year. Just like Nintendo has Mario ond Sega have Sonk, Zool has become the standard Kon for the AMIGA.
Zool arrived at just about the right time.
Platformers were slowly losing their appeal and people were getting tired of cutesy gome after cutesy game. Ihe ant in the block silk pyjomo* then exploded onto the scene and changed everything for the better.
OK, so the game wos hyped to oblivion and looking back it was perhaps a fairly bog-standard piatformer, but it contained an copious amount of style and oppcal of which the gomes buying public hod not seen since the release of Rainbow Islands.
The ninja from the nth dimension has become increasingly more popular and the question of a sequel has never been in doubt. Hadng completed his journey through the six levels in the original, Zocl has to travel through a further massive nine levels.
These include Swan loke, Bulberry Hill, Tooting Common, Mount kes, Snaking Pass and more. All of ihe levels ore going to be much larger and will feature a number of different ways of completion W The general feel of the gomeplcy is very similar to the first incornotipn, but the time fV-, B limits have been made even 'Jh .

Another new character is Zool's pet ag called, ahem, Zoon. Being a dog of the alien arty, Zoon has two heads. One head is slupidi- wlf, olways on the look out for food, drib-

suggestion is that Zool must rescue Zoon from a hidden area on
each world. If Zoon is saved he joins Zool for the
confrontation with Mental Block at the end of world.
Whether or not ~ this will be implemented is still up in the air.
I W There will also be bonus levels (like the shoot'em-up section seen in Zool 1) which are going to be pocked Ml to the brim with goodies and bonuses. Gremlin are &till working on various ideos for the sequel. One
* idea being Zool or Zooz battling wilh Mcntol Block, maybe
rolling around in a metal ball os seen in the Gladiators
television programme.
As well os gameplay getting a re hash, the graphics and sound have both received a thoroughly deserved moke-over. The Zool sprite ond other charocters have been made a lot cuter and friendly thon those seen in the original.
For the forthcoming sequel there will be a different tune for each world rather than the just the one ploying all the way through the platforming romp. Other new tunes will oe added for the front and bock end sequences. The option to choose between musk and sound effects will remain.
Pot Phelon, the man responsible for the musk featured in the first incarnation of Zool has once more token over the reigns for the sequel. Pat who hos worked on lotus 3, Nigel Mansell and Premier Monoger I ond 2 explains how he come up with his musical masterpieces.
"The musk is generally one of the lost things to go in. Til spend maybe a couple days playing the game to get a feel for it before talking to the programmers.” “I will then come up with a tune that I think wiH I jj, ,,x jj suit the character. It's usually the pulse that comes first ond then that becomes the gome's title track.
I tfien bounce various ideas in ond out of the first track lo get some new, but similar pieces.
M J4 V V A KI Lkd Eventually, I'll hove an entire suite of musk for the gome."
So, there you have the low-down on Zool 2 which will become the number one gome this Christmas (now there's a bold statement!). Forget about putting Jurossk Park on your list to Santa because the Amiga's best platform character is bock with o vengeance.

seconds Saving.,. Speaking Personal Rexx also provided an
interface through which external applications could use tlx*
Rexx language as if it was their own.
This was probably die dawn of automation interfaces in the Arexx style. It meant that software applications could now share a common, powerful script language, and no longer had to supply their own. Often inferior versions.
It also meant tlut software designers no longer had to reinvent the wheel each time they needed a script language for an application, and users didn't need to leam a different language for every different program they used.
LESS EXPERIENCED To get hack to Arexx: I often cannot lk*lp feeling that one of the reasons that it still spooks less experienced users, is that i j does so much.
.After all it does four separate jobs, any one of which would lx1 enough to rate it as a super-useful tool. Arexx dcx*s the jobs of a DOS enhancer, a typeloss freeform utility language, a script language for applications and an interprocess communications system, all of which will now- he examined in greater detail Musk As a prelude la Ihe silly season, Paul Austin prviidct a concise buyers'guide to llw best of I l e Arnica music sojluare H CommsJ Phil ouih looks at whai life's like on Ihe InIci ncI.
And asks a fete questions alioid FTP Unit to use the Amos Sort junction complete uilh examples, and some more coding widgets. Jrt m Phil South mm I Bill's vision] edged the value of this contribution, and included Arexx In the Workbench 2.0 operating system.
By then, enough software vendors had seen the advantages ot Arexx to ensure that most major Amiga products had an Arexx Interface.
In the meantime, IBM had not failed to notice the potential of Rexx either. Its popularity on the This is the Christmas issue, and no doubt, as in Christmases past, many new Amiga owners will join the fold. Since it is now almost impossible to obtain an Amiga without hearing something about Arexx (unless ilk* only thing you do with your machine Is play games), I will take this opportunity to present a general overview of the language, its history and its basic principles.
Obviously, in a small space like this. I cannot hope to convey more than an impression of the language, and newcomers wanting a more detailed overview should obtain an introductory book on Arexx, such as tin* one reviewed below.
Several aspects of Arexx have also been discussed in these pages over tin.- last two years, and the editor has even threatened to put them all on a CoverDisk, so if you think this would be of help, why not write in and tell him!'
First, a bit of history. Tire earliest form of Arexx was a language called Rexx. It first appeared in 1983, created Ivy IBM's Mike Cowlirvshaw. Its purpose was to provide a gtxxl general-purpose utility language for IBM's systems.
Rexx was not originally designed to tun on micros, hut on large mainframe machines. Its design criteria were simplicity, practicality and usability.
Rexx did indeed turn out to be very simple and intuitive to use, despite its power and versatility. Its commands were English-like, and its overall “fed* was even easier to master than Basic It was also very good at han- dling data, especially data in text form. Rexx. Incidentally, stands for Restructured Extended eXecutor - just in rase you wondered! This mouthful simply means that it is an executor (a control language), it is extended (has many new features), and it Itts been redesigned for better program structure.
This was in relation to Rexx's predecessors, among them a simple language called Exec, which, of course, should not lx* contused with tlx* Amiga's “Exec’ kernel, Now, quite a few programmers took to Rexx. Won over by its ability to nuke tricky and tedious jobs easy', and it became popular on many platforms. Yet all this was happening in the world of large machines and their arcane operating systems, and was of little, if any. Relevance to the world ol personal computing.
However, die popularity of Rexx would not In it stay confined to its birthplace, and eventually a few versions started to appear for the MS-DOS platform.
One of them, Personal Rexx, managed to attract a fair following. Ixit even so, it was hardly a mainstream language; more of a little gem for those "in the know", However, Ihe first appearance of Rexx on a multitasking micro was due to a programmer called Bill Hawes, who had the foresight to see how well the Amiga and this new language could integrate.
His implementation of Arexx on the Amiga, appearing in 1987.
Won a good following, especially among more serious programmers who appreciated its chore- lightening effects.
However, it was still some time before Commodore acknowl- big machines led them to Incorporate it into their OS 2 microcomputer operating system.
This is significant because OS 2 is a true multitasking system, like the Amiga's, and is in many ways superior to the hugely popular but awkward Windows.
In a sense, this justified Bill Hawes' vision of the language's potential. As OS 2 gains popularity, the Rexx family of languages could become quite important in the personal computing scene.

Mi.into Enti your language Firstly, Arexx's job as a DOS enhancer. Have you ever needed an AmigaDOS command to do a special job. Bill all you could find win a very rough equivalent that didn’t really meet your requirements?
Perhaps it didn't have the options you wanted, or only did half the things you needed? Maybe you tried to write an Amiga DOS batch file to automate a task, Ixit turned grey trying to figure out the weird control suuctures? Did you wish there was a simpler way?
There is, and it is called Arexx! Because it can work together with AmigaDOS, it's easy to devise custom commands, Ixised on existing ones. You do not have to duplicate effort, just add your specifications.
Should you want something flashier than the CLI interface, you can use special libraries to link to the graphical Intuition environment, and add your own custom requesters, menus and the like.
Also, unlike regular interpreters such as Basic, you do not have to load up the whole language every time you want to nin a program; once loaded Arexx stays inconspicuously in the background ready to be used as needed.
But ultimately, tlx* main reason fix Arexx's success is our second task, its flexibility as a programming language. After all die grammar of a language and its links to die host system are two separate issues, and any old script language could have lxx*n bolted on.
Several script languages are already in existence as pan of software packages, and if you have used any of them, you will know how limiting die)' can lie.
Arexx. On the other Itand. Has all tlx* features of a modem high- level language, and supports modular and structured programming.
Let nx- stress here that Arexx is built for comfort, not for speed.
Tlx* speed of Arexx lies, not in how fast it nins its programs, Ixit in how last it lets you w rite them.
Arexx does not have separate data types, so you do not have to declare integers, floating points or arrays at the lx*ginning of your program.
Everything is treated as a string of characters, and this simplifies diings no end - and not just for tlx* beginner! Arexx also has outstanding facilities for handling rabies and arrays, with minimal effort on the user’s pan Overall, it lets you approach all programming chores with a minimum of set-up requirements (for a detailed discussion of this, sec tlx* last two issues).
Arexx could be the Amiga’s best kept secret.
Alex Gian opens the lid on the language, its history and myriad of uses Sonic people feel dial all this power can lead inexperienced users into pitfalls, but I think that this is far outweighed by tlx* advantages.
Once they get into it, even people who have never programmed before are surprised at how much tlx*)' can do. Arexx will support rigorous primming just as well as ‘quick and dirty" hacks to get a job done.
Many applications can benefit from the addidon of a script. If you have ever sat in front of a screen performing repetitive actions with a mouse, aixl wishing dial you could go away and let the machine do tlx* job, you can see dx* advantages.
CUSTOM COMMANDS On the Amiga, the applications that make most use of Arexx are animation, graphics, modem communications and DTP. Obviously each application will specify its own custom commands - to simulate menu selections, for instance - and on tlx- whole these will lx* different in each package and unrelated to Arexx. However, the control language tliat ties everything together (loops, IF statements, etc) is the same.
Finally, we have interprocess communication, which is die natural extension of scripts, and unique to the Amiga implementation.
This allows programs to communicate with each other directly.
Hx* best way to understand diis is with some examples: A word- processor could control a DTP program, setting dx* text as soon as it is finished, a database could control some presentation software, giv* ing impressive graphic updates of its contents, a modem could control a.remote robot, and so on.
Well, I hope this has gone some way towards whetting your appetite about the Arexx beast, and maybe even given you some ideas for your own use. Hunks to tlx* more seasoned Arexx users for bearing with me; we will recommence our more technical sorties from die next issue.

gratulated you on its originality and excellence.
WJM Questions fly back and forth across the neighbour- I od - some cynical: oh, you fancy yourself as a hot shot direc- I or now do you? - some irritating; really, how interesting! How I ag did you say your budget was? - others ‘endearing’; will ycxi I tmcmlxr me when you're rich and famous?
Well maybe a touch exagerated. Pre-production is the next I **al link in the chain of production. Many films may stan with a I cfid script but go wrong through lack of real preparation and I xersiglu on the part of the makers.
The first obstacle to overcome is how you want to shoot the I ndeo. This introduces the director's bible - the storyboards.
I These are nude up from a series of lx xes where pictures are I iawn depicting each shot of tile feature.
Beside each of these are descriptions of the individual shot I ad whatever dialogue or action liappens within them. You don t I aced to be an accomplished artist to nuke up the storyboards.
I sanple stick-men style drawings are sufficient for producing I Mnetliing tliat you and your future crew can work from.
If you're Mill not liappy with the results, get a friend to do I tern or simply construct a written shot list giving a description I d each one in the film so, at the very least, you'll go on a sh x t I tnowing exactly what shots you want, not necessarily how you I 'ant them to Itxik. While it is inijxmant to rememlxr tliat a clear I toon is needed for any film, the storylxxtrd is a guide not the Behind the scenes
• you've ever wondered what all those masses of jobs were in re
credits of your favourite film, then here is the list for a
“Skele* an" crew.
Small crews generally work the fastest so keep numbers to a Minimum by doubling people's roles up. It's best to take an extra rerson around with you as well to help lug gear and look after it
* nen everyone is focused on their jobs, which are: 3R0DUCER - In
the real world, this guy or gal is the employer ’•no hires and
fires everyone including the director. They're the ¦jye who
hunt money out of its hiding place to feed into the film.
DIRECTOR - Just the person who leads the team and calls the yvots... easy life!
3R0DUCTI0N ASSISTANT - The director’s nanny. Helps with : I the paperwork, drawing up schedules, crew lists and anything rie which can be thought of.
Frequently seen standing round on the set with a dock casual* . Saying “ two minutes left for this shot" while everyone else runs
- end like chickens with their heads cut off.
Can be doubled up as a location manager who finds the different settings for your film and then gets permission to use them or free with their superb negotiation skills.
JGHTING CAMERA OPERATOR - The eyes of the director, jood camera operators can bring their own ideas to the directs vision without stepping on anyone's creative toes.
They can also double as lighting designer, a much underesti-
- ated job - it’s not just a case of whacking a few lights up and
- aking it look like Neighbours.
SOUND RECORDIST - One of the most important jobs on the ew and rarely receives any recognition because they don’t
* ave a funky piece of equipment to strut around with. They can
- en make the difference between a professional or amateur
yoduction.
Also rolls the videotape and performs spot checks, which is
• xmg at the previously shot image to make sure that there is no
:stortion or breaking up of the picture.
EDITOR - The person who makes or breaks a film. A bad video an be made to look excellent and vice versa by editors working rer cutting room magic.
Final nay. Due to the nature of a shtxM where anything can happen, you'll find yourself making alterations whether it's due to weather, circumstances beyond your control or simply lxxau.se you’ve changed your mind about how it is to he shot.
Don't be afraid to do this: The more research done at this stage, the better your instincts will serve you on the actual day and it will normally turn out to lx* right.
With tile storyboard's finished, it's on to cast and crew hunting. If the production is small then yourself and a few friends can do it but if you're feeling brave and think tliat a more exjxrienced crew and cast ate needed then place adverts in the local newspaper for talent: try and get the local radio station to give you a little air time; contact amateur dramatic groups, drama school* and video clulis if there are any in the area.
It's always best to ask to sex* people s work via their showreels. A short interview to make sure they are enthusiastic and commit- Choosing your crew ted should lx* enough to give you a fair idea of what kind of person they are.
The same principle applies to tlx* acting; auditions are sometimes not that useful. Nerves of the moment can help to produce a bad performance that does not do their talent justice.
The most important element to the selection process Is the interview The kind of rjpport struck up Ix-tween the actor and yourself is very important with regards to how well they'll receive instruction and how confident they are on set. Look after your actors; decent ones are few and far between.
If this all sounds a little nightmarish, don't worry - its layout is for a large scale amateur production. For the first few films, you may well decide to follow a more simple route using friends for all the roles - an ideal way to start.

And don't forget that the major advantage of software emulators like PC Task over hardware add-ons is that they don’t invalidate your warranty.
PC Task comes with an excellent manual that keeps things easy to understand, plus more technical information for advanced users. There’s also technical support.
The speed of PC Task is directly related to that of your Amiga, and the program includes EGA and VGA support. It is compatible with all Amigas running Kickstart Workbench 1.2 or higher with at least 0.5Mb of RAM, although some features do need a minimum of I Mb. MSDOS is not supplied. It is suggested that you use v5.0 or v3.3. Product: Bar & Pipes Professional 2 Manufacturer: The Blue Ribbon Soundworks Ltd.
Equencers to Price: £299.99 Distributor: Meridian Distribution Ltd, 081*543 3500 Pro Midi product with unlimited tracks, built-in notation, software mixer, graphic editor plus an open-ended architecture which allows the addition of add-on sound processing tools, plus simple integration of complementary products from the Blue Ribbon range.
Comment: Highly recommended in all departments but especially useful for multimedia and DTY applications, with the release of Bar He Pipes Pro 2 making it the most flexible and arguably the most powerful package on the market.
Product: KCS Level II 3.5 Manufacturer: Dr Ts Price: £278.99 Distributor: Micro-Pace UK Ltd, 0753 551888 Tape recorder-style main screen. Real-time Tiger graphic editing environment offering complete control over all Midi data.
Quickscore notation system. Automix real-time software mixing plus programmable variation generator and master editor providing the most comprehensive variation generation available via 16 screens of editing tools and definable variation parameters.
Comment: An all-round pro product which offers the most powerful and accurate sequencing environment on the Amiga.
However he warned: This is very serious software designed to meet die needs of the most demanding studio musician engineer.
An excellent investment for die experienced Midi musician but perhaps a bit to much for the average punter.
Product: Sequencer One Plus Manufacturer: Gajits Music Software Price: £59.90 Distnbutor: Gajits Music Software. 061-236 2515 Offers a unique diamond editing system which means that all adjustment of Midi data whether it be note, control or program change can be achieved via a via a simple point and click system - nuking its editing environment extremely quick and easy to use.
Comment A very gcxxl basic sequencer offering all the essentials if perhaps a little lacking in the frilLs. For the beginner or occasional user it's the perfect compromise between power and ease of use. However it does not offer the expandability and power features supplied by eidier B&PPto or KCS.
Product: TIGER Cub Manufacturer: Dr T’s Pnce: £99.95 Distnbutor; Micro-Pace Ltd, 0753 551888 Although limited to just 12 tracks, TIG HR Cub is still a viable investment with a proven track record plus real-time graphic editing and Quickscore notation printing, Comment: Although rather superseded by more recent releases, TIGER Cub nevertheless offers a good introduction to the Dr Ts family at a price the beginner can afford - just... Product: MusicX Manufacturer: Microillusions Pnce: £24.95 Distributor: Silica Systems, 081-309 1111 Tracks run to 250. Plus librarian, protocol, filter and
keymap editors. Like all the sequencing packages mentioned, MusicX is happy to process Amiga samples in addition to normal midi data.
Comment: Although something of a golden oldie in Amiga sequencing terms, MusicX Is undoubtedly die Ixrst value package on the market and offers a great opportunity for the lieginner to test their musical ability prior to investing in a more modem package.
Patch editors librarians Product: PatchMeister Manufacturer: Blue Ribbon Soundworks RRP: £79.95 Distributor: Mendian Distribution Ltd, 081-543 3500 A generic librarian package which can lie appended to either Super Jam or Bars He Pipes professional as either a standalone or accessor r. Boasts support for most modem On your Xmas list synths.
Comment: In relation to other packages Patchmeister offers a more accessible route into what can be a rather complex area. Due to its easy assimilation into the overall Bar & Pipes environment, it's the perfect compliment to Blue Ribbon Midi system.
As a prelude to the silly season, Paul Austin provides a concise buyer's guide to Amiga music software Product X-OR 1.1 Manufacturer: DrTs Price: £199.99 Distnbutor: Micro-Pace UK Ltd, 0753 551888 Boasts the most comprehensive support on the market with over 120 Midi devices catered for. In addition the software is completely programmable and can learn and remember your entire Midi setup ready for instant editing when required.
Comment Alas like its parent program KCS, X-OR 1.1 is not ideal for the lieginner, being designed to fit the needs of the professional who wants and will use its powerful if rather complex options Product: SuperJAM 1.1 Manufacturer: Blue Ribbon Soundworks RRP: £99.95 Distributor: Meridian Distribution 081-543 3500 The musical talents of six virtual musicians combine to provide an automatic song generation system which produces instant backing tracks with the band as a whole taking their leadfrom a selection of supplied and add-on styles.
Comment: Although perhaps not of great use to inspirational musicians, Super Jam can nevertheless be an invaluable tool for commercial musicians who are often called upon to produce large quantities of lift music quickly.

F you’re into comms then you'll k into the Internet. If not physically connected to it, like using CIX's feed, then you’ll know about it, and will at least lx: able to send external mil over it.
But have you ever wanted to be more in touch with the Internet? I wanted to find out about setting up my own Internet node, and boy is it expensive But there is a cheaper and much more enjoyable way to reach out and touch someone, COMMS In the process of my investigations I heard that Demon Internet can connect you to the Internet with your own node for fost £10 a month!
Yep, it's true and I got all the details. The minimum subscription period is just one month apart from the Mail Forwarding option (which I'll talk about in a sec) which is an annual contract.
The services include direct connection to the Internet, mail and Usenet news. A special conuns program is needed for your Amiga, but this is downloadable from CIX or Demon.
The Standard Dialup service puts your computer on the Internet with your own Internet address. File transfer (ftp) directly to and from your computer, download upload mail and news, telnet and ftp all at the same time, by a process called multiple sessions.
You get a lull read write Usenet news feed. You can also have multiple mail addresses from your machine too, like: snouty3snouty.denon.co.uk pHiliir.outy.deion.co.ul postustirasnouty.dtion.cc.uk Demon stipulate that even thought you have multiple addresses, 'mail must only lx* processed on the computer connected to us and not passed on to other computers for composing or read* ing ’ Gee, why not?
There is a once only set-up fee of £12.50, and from then on a fixed price of £|Q a month There are no on-line charges or charges for mail and the like. Once you are connected to your nearest Demon "Point of Presence" (PoP) you pay no extras.
Right now you can connect to PoPs in London, Warrington or Edinburgh. Payment for home users can be made monthly in advance by Access or Visa credit cards.
You may pay annually by cash, cheque or credit card the yearly fee of £120, which is handy if you don’t own a credit card, like me.
Oh yes and the lx*st bit Mail Forwarding is as I said - for an extra annual charge you can add a little something to the Standard Dialup Service, allowing you to use your own domain (like for example “snouty.com"). This extra service costs a mere £200 per year, payable in advance. But think about it... phil8snouty.com... damn. I like the sound of tliat. Oh yes, and technical support for Internet customers is available Monday to Frida' between 9am and 9pm and Saturdays between 9am and 6pm. Just think, a mere £320 and you can have your own customised Internet address, Many thanks to Giles Todd
of Demon Internet for all the above information.
Now all I've got to do is Find a spare £200 to have my own domain...

Picking up from a satellite server I'm open for enquiries on the Internet, CIX, and all matters BBS, so why not send me a note by snail mail or email? This month's question is from Christopher Rea on CIX. He wants to know how to get the satellite pictures from Imperial College via CIX. He said he'd tried to use a Gopher server but it didn't deliver the goods. Well, Chris, they rarely do. I always prefer to wade m manually and surf the Internet by hand. It's easy. From the MAIN: prompt on CIX, simply type: get ukl.gif or whatever the file name is. This sends the file to CIX from 1C.
Then when you got all the files you want you QUIT out of the IP by typing: then you are at the ip prompt again, Do a dir to see what files you got. Then SEND them from CIX to you by typing: which will send all the files to you one by one. You can use ADPro or ViewTek (on a Fish disk) to look at the pictures.

Moil order to: DTBS (Dept AC11), 18 Norwich Avenue, Rochdale, Lancs 0L11SJZ ne ol the most common computing operations known to man is the sort. You take a list of numbers or letters and sort them into a specific order cither first till last or
a. v till first.
This doesn't take a great deal of artificial intelligence, as ¦ost of tlie things on which these decisions ate based is methanol Does this word start with an A or doesn't it? That kind of Tang.
AMOS Same again really, but notice how SORT is used to arrange the array into order, no matter w hat wacky numbers you slap in. If you w ant to type in fractions you'll have to specify a floating point array with the * or hash’ symbol, as in this more finished example: In the past We've had to construct our own sons from oilier commands and make them do the job. But Amos is an exception wt again, as it lias a built-in sort function OK so it's not very smart and in order to get it to son anything n j fancy way you've still got to resort to some fancy programming. But nevertheless it works
and it saves you a lot
• of time if all you want to do is stuff some strings in an array
and belt them out the other end as soon as possible and in rank
order.

Print "The sorted figares «re ii fellous...* for B--1 Te 10 Print 11(B) hot 6 Using SORT is easy, all you need is a variable for it to act upon. Tlie variable it acts on Is always an array, An array, in case you never studied Basic in college, is a variable which holds more than one value in a number of electronic pigeon holes. It does it like this: Sort a(0) Sort a$ (0) like that. In these examples a and aS
are arrays, the first obviously containing numeric data I numbers) and the second containing alphanumeric data (letters) otherwise known as strings.
Sort it aht!
The SORT function returns your array in a sorted form of ascending order. This means 1,23,4,5... rather than descending order w hich would be ..5,43,2,1. In the case of words or letters alphalietical order is the order of the day.
This function works in the same way in both Amos Pro and regular Amos. An allied function is MATCH, which searches an already sorted array for a specific value. When it finds the value it puts the index (the location in the array) into a variable which you can retrieve later.
So a basic array loader goes like this: Od 1(10) First DlMeasion the array, in this case ten numbers. Then set up a loop to fill the array with numbers which you input: For A:1 To 10 input 1(A) Rtft A When you get to the bottom of the list, the numbers you put in must tie displayed. If you do this: for 6*1 To 10 Print 1(6) Keit 0 (hen each number you put in will be printed in die order you put it in. Fine. But what if you wanted them sorted into numerical order? Simple: Hi 1(10) for Ml Tp 10 input 1(A) Next A Sort 1(0) for B*1 To 10 Print KB) Next B Write stuff If you have an Amos programming
problem or neat Amos trick you want to share with the world, then please write to Phil South, Amos Column, Amiga Computing. Europa House, Adlington Park. Macclesfield, SK10 4NP.
An item in an array. If it finds the item then it loads the index into the variable: K»litck(l(0),A.5) for example looks for a value of 4,5 in my array from the previ- ous program. If it finds it at 1(3) for example, it'll put the number 3 into X. I can then use: Print Kl) to refer to that location in the array. You could do a devilishly slow son this way, by searching for lower and lower numbers and any numbers you find being put into another array in reverse order.
Incidental!) If MATCH doesn't find a match for its searched for figure or letters, it'll return a minus figure, si 3 this is easily scanned for and ignored To reverse the order of a son more simply do this; Pit 11(10) Dia 121(10) Screen Open 0,6*0,200,16,Hire) Ftaah Off : Cur* Off : Paper 0 : Cl» 0 Print *Pte«e jive ae 10 nuaberj...'' tor A=1 To 10 Print ¦‘Nuaber •;»; : Input !i(A) Next A Sort 11(0) Ml for C«10 To 1 S»p -1 !?l(l):)!( ) Inc A Heat C Print ; Print "The u-iorted figures ire it fellows...a Per Bs1 To 10 Print 12 (B Next B The magic occurs when we let I2*(I)H*(C).

doing is counting dowm through the original 1*0 array with the FOR NEXT l x p, and feeding each figure into die 12*0 array from 1 to 10 by INCrementing the array index as we go. Neat eh?
Phil South looks at the Amos Sort function, plus a few more coding widgets Write a program!
This is the part where I set you a bit of homework. For starters, can you figure out a way to align the floating point numbers so the decimal points line up? I'll give you a clue - look into using LEN.
And LEFTS, MIOS and RIGHTS. Wink.
For the big project how about this: Try to write a program which takes in a list of names and allows you to sort them, and also search for a particular name.
Use flags to attach a small text file to the name and load it from disk. Package it all together and you’ve got yourself a database program!

All prices subject to change & delivery here is no substitute lor a well presented document where each page coasistently lcx ks like it belongs to the previous one. On tlx* same theme, if your document is a periodical - that's a document issued on a regular basis - it is again important tliat each issue has a similar style to tlx* previous one.
But this consistency should not be at the expense of speed.
Deadlines still have t be met. So a nxtkxl like templates is needed. A foundation on which you can base the pages in your document Tltere are a couple of ways you can employ templates. One is to use a page template within a document as the hasis for every page created, and tlx* second is tlx* template document.
The former template is essentially a page that is not printed Ixit contains all the ‘furniture’ tliat you will have on each jxige iliere- after furniture Ixing elements that are used regularly by a particular document - tlx* page numlxT for example, tlx- minx* of tlx* document or tlx* chapter title, and any graphic's that are repeated from |xige to page.
By liaving tliese on a template you can create all tlx* pages for your document with these elenx*nis already present on tlx* page in tlx* same position and in a a insistent style.
Achieving a consistent style will ax|uire other tools, like tags, and in ProPage at least you can pre-tag text on your template so tlxit when you load text into a lx x the new text will automatically acquire the tag This isn't tlx* case in PageStreani because elements from ils version of a template, the master page, cannot lx* edited on any other (xige other tlian on the master page itself.
Now so far I have applied this to a single template page, but in Ivith PageStream and ProPage the template page can lx- two pages, a right and left, or odd and even if you prefer.
DOCUMENT TEMPLATES In ProPage you always have an ixld and even template, in PageStream y xi can set whether you want tlx* one master page, or a right and left master page, when you create a new documenL Although the two programs can work with both left and nglit templates, tlx*y use different metkxls of creating tlx* pages from these templates - hardly surprising as they do most things differently.
In ProPage each page has to be created manually, in PageStream your pages are already tlxrre for you when you create a new ckxument.
What is imponant is the way the two programs use tlx* templates. In ProPage you can lay out the elements on your template and create a page from tliis. Either a single left or right page or. In facing pages mtxle. Unh right and left pages at once By specifying Ixixes linked, text can lx* flowed from page to page until either all the pages are tilled or tlx- text tuns (Hit In PageStream. With tlx* PUBLISHING jxtges already created, you do not create a ixige from a master. Rather, you add your elements to die master page and these will appear on the corresponding pages in tlx* ckxiiment.
So If you are working from a single master all pages in the document will contain these elements, but if you are working with left and right templates, by adding a element to a right-hand master page, all right-hand pages in your document w ill also have these elements.
PageStream does not enable you to edit any of the elements from the master page on a page w ithin tlx* document. So if a graphic element is not required on a certain page in your document the only thing you cun do is delete it on the master page, in which case it will disappear from all pages in your dcxu- ment. Or you could cover it up with another box. Template pages are not the end of tlx* Standing on solid ground story. Template documents are also very useful. A common example Is tlx* humble letterliead. By creating one and saving the document as a template it can lx used as the basis for
all y xir letters, nuking tlx* task in a DTP |wckage simple as all the decorative elements are in place with only the individual text to lx* imported.
What is a template and why are they so important?
Ben Pointer draws his conclusions ProPage goes oik* step further, enabling you to save single pages and load them into a current document. This is useful when there are elenx-nts in one document you want to be present in your new document. PageStream does enable you to append documents, so you could fudge something similar If you get dx* feeling tlut templates are vital in document creation. You’re right, they are But more than anything they make the designer’s job much easier and quicker, which Is w hy most wouldn't lx* without them.

The PICASSO II RTG (Retargetable graphics) is the future of Amiga graphics display technology. It is not restricted by memory limitations or custom chip speed of the host system. The RTG emulator integrates seamlessly to allow resolutions up to 1280 x 1024 at up to 256 colours to all system friendly software. It also supports custom screen modes with up to 16.7 million colours at 800 x 600. Speed is derived from an on-board blit* ter, supporting drawing speeds at up to 30Mb Sec. Off screen displays are moved to Picasso II display memory for super-fast screen updates. There is NO Chip RAM used
for the emulation. Only the currently visible display is kept in Picasso II display memory. All other screens are stored in system memory, allowing ALL system memory to be used as graphics memory-. The Picasso II has an electronic switch that automatically routes the proper signal to your monitor, so non-Picasso II screens are passed invisibly to your monitor. The Picasso II emulator supports WB 2.04 and up. It is compatible with all Zorro II III Amiga's.
Intuition Screen Modes are 640 x 480. 800 x 600, 1024 x 768. 1152 x 1024 (IMb version) + 1280 x 1024 (2Mb version) all in 2-256 colours, Other features ; 24 bit graphics (16.7 million colours) at up to 800 x 600,64000 colours at over 1024 x 768 and AutoScrolling screens up to 1600 x 1300.
