This move towards compatibitity between formats coutel we)) prove the saviour of the Amiga as the premier videographic desktop platform. Another massive announcement at the show was the launch of Ljghtwave on both PC and SG) formats. Atthough seen as ye! another nai) in the AMIGA coffin by some.) fee) it can only he)p the cause in the)ong-tôrm. if NewTek want to maintain and develop a (oot-ho)d in both the PC and SG) markets they*)) have to work hard in the R&D department the fruits of which wi)) also be apptied to the Amiga version. OK. the PC market may be massive but it's the Amiga that dominâtes the video market. quite simply because the PC is useless for vtdeography. They don t)ike. nor understand video, and to teach them costs an absolute fortune in additions) hardware. They may be fast, but witt that reaiiy inspire videographers to trade their existing Amiga Systems, especiaüy when they could out render an SG) for a fraction of the price by simpfy adding a Raptor to their existing kit. Basicatty. the only thing that wi)) kit) the Amiga off is Commodore. The wiHingness to develop and buy the machine is there. At) they have to do is get in gear before it's too)ate. tf this farcica) situation isn't sorted out soon many devetopers wi)) be forced to look e)se-where. whether they want to or not. The future of the Amiga hinges on one key factor.)f the new took Commodore can't get the range back in manufacture before Chnstmas it tooks very grim.

Jb Bi| RdflfTl PHILLIPS DEWS Bidding for their rights WITH all the high profile chest beating of product laden companies at the ECTS this month, it came as something of a pleasant surprise to be ushered into an exclusive hotel room on the first floor of the Holiday Inn, London for a low-key press conference.
The meeting was to discuss the future of the Amiga and the validity of Commodore UK’s bid.
Present, along with a host of journalists, were the two key figures at Commodore UK. David Pleasance and Colin Proudfoot, ready to answer and explain a few burning issues that have been taking up so much space in recent news articles: what is happening with Commodore?
According to Pleasance. The UK team are still highly confident of a positive outcome for their bid.
“Over the weekend, the final bid has been pulled together - it'll be on the Bahamian liquidators’ desk by tomorrow morning (5th September)."
CONCLUSION The decision makers have been given ten working days to draw a conclusion to the lengthy proceedings concerning Commodore UK's bid. If successful, the team will end up owning the rights to past, present and research and development plans for the future.
Despite the apparent organisation and efficiency of the UK bid, the process has been beset by problems in recent weeks.
The main setback has been the major inventors of components being held at a factory in the Phillipines.
Vital to any mass production in the future. Commodore UK has been told by the courts that the Stock cannot be touched until after Christmas.
What this means, in the short term, is that if successful. There will be a stock shortage of 1200s and CD32s come Christmas, no matter what happens.
The only good news is that 4000s will be in ample supply.
David Pleasance is ready to accept that the stock will bo “less than originally expected. We can't sell hundreds of thousands of units because we can't make them."
As far as competition goes, Samsung and two States-based companies are the only apparent contenders in the financial boxing ring at the moment.
The Japanese giant has already made it all too clear that it has no interest in injecting new life into Commodore but simply wants new technology to use in other areas.
Pleasance is well aware that another company could step in at the last minute but is prepared for that occurrence. The lack of competitors may suggest a lack of interest in Commodore, but Pleasance believes that it is something else: “There is a stigma round Commodore’s performance (in the past) - it has frightened people away."
If the UK bidders labours do not pay off, a future strategy has already been drawn up to polish the tarnished image of the once great company.
NAMING First will be a name change. Computer Trade Weekly, the industry's newspaper has reported that the new company will be called Amiga International.
From there, the short term plan is to “concentrate on the core business, sell current products and continue the employment of some people.” The next stage will involve discussions with distributors to draw up forecasts for the next 12 months. Bearing the results in mind, a marketing plan can be produced to maximise the company’s resources.
Apparently, the team is not interested “in a quick killing at Christmas" but instead want to cut back on all major subsidiaries and “grow organically” in the words of Proudfoot. As for the future, plans are already in place, ready to begin if the bid goes through. The employment of new staff is of paramount importance. “There are currently 17 research and development engineers still on staff but we want to move that up to the 60 mark'' commented Proudfoot.
"We also want to establish 22 people to aid the 246 software publishers in whatever they do."
The CD32 was met with, it seemed, less enthusiasm than in the past. With the oncoming wave of next generation consoles snapping at the small but well formed heels of Commodore's CD- ROM machine. Pleasance said: “the CD32 is in fairly good shape” and that competition such as Sony “does have a future in the market place."
According to the managing director, there will be 200 titles available for the CD32 come Christmas. We'll wait and see.
Probably the biggest news were the plans for future technology. The much speculated and often discussed AAA chipset has been dropped and replaced with designs for a RISC-based system.
One of the principal reasons for the switch is the lack of an operating system for the new defunct chipset - it would simply take too long to develop one.
DEVELOPMENT The new machine will go into development straight away if the bid is accepted. Pleasance estimates the development systems will be ready in six months for the community to begin work on software and a further 12 months for it to hit the retail shelves.
There are also plans to produce a high-end work station “that'll be 20-30 times faster than a
4000. “ The managing director is adamant though that the Amiga
should be “a multimedia platform - and not just for games."
Despite concerns over the potential shortage crisis at Christmas, it would seem Commodore UK has a definite and well thought out strategy for the future of Amiga machines.
Perhaps as an indication of their confidence, the team are already planning the relaunch party to be held on 13 October. Whichever way the bidding battle swings, we’ll know next month and the waiting will finally be over.

Called "Help By E-mail", the on-line service was test launched in July and proved so successful it has been set up indefinitely.
“During the test month we received over 200 messages.
Many were from well wishers, journalists and academics but there are around 15 very desperate people as well. The need for a full launch of our service with the easier address was amply demonstrated." Said Mike Haines, the Director.
To use the service, e-mail on: jo@samaritans.org and for anonymous mail, type: samaritans@anon.penet.fi. All messages will be handled in the strictest confidence- [rime unit crachs damn an porn pirates Following the recent discovery of pirated CD software valued at £10 million, ELSPA's crime unit headed by John Loader has recovered over 200 CD-ROM discs and writing equipment from two addresses in Manchester.
The software, worth £500,000. Has been examined by both ELSPA investigators and the Greater Manchester Obscene Publications Department. “Not only does illegal activity pose an enormous threat to the commercial interests of the UK’s legitimate computer games software industry", stated Loader." But it highlights the increasing problem of production and distnbution of illegal, pornographic software through out the UK."
This month also saw the conviction and imprisonment of two counterfeiters, Donald George Brown and David Doyle. Brown was recently found guilty of four offences relating to copyright infringement and was given three months in prison. 5,600 disks containing copied software and copying equipment were uncovered at his premises by police and ELSPA officials.
David Doyle was found to be manufacturing counterfeit software and received a six month sentence plus a £5000 bill for court costs.
If you have any information that should receive the attention of the crime unit, phone John Loader in confidence on 0386 833810.
Internet opened up With the super information highway starting to take shape, CompuServe have begun the testing of a new service that allows members to participate in discussions on USENET.

There's a new contender in the world-rendering ring, and it looks like it could peck e knockout punch.
World Construction Set. From Questar Productions, combines traditional 3D rendering technologies with a new “natural" ecosystem modelling technique to produce dazzling, realistic landscape images.
Word Construction Set uses a Geographic Information System database to allow it to render much larger areas with a greater degree of detail than competing programs.
It uses on-demand object loading to allow it to render large amounts of data without needing an incredible amount of memory.
The company claims that you can render the entire US state of Colorado in 90-metre square samples. 80 million polygons total, in 8MB of RAM.
Given enough time to render, this system would even allow you to animate a continuous zoom out from a single forest clearing to a view of the entire planet.
WCS will render US Geological Service standard DEM files.
(VistaPro DEM support is planned for a coming update.)
But WCS does more than just create pretty pictures. It includes a layering system and a map module that allows you to place vector objects, such as political boundaries, roads, buildings, streams, and coastlines on your image; you can also label images.
You can even load AutoCAD DXF vector objects and place them on your image. If you have a Summagraphics graphics tablet, it can be used with the mapping module.
The algorithmic ecosystem mapping prevents too-regular-looking distributions of trees and plants, making for a more natural looking image. You can choose between water, bare, rock, conifer, deciduous, or grass ecosystems.
Skies and backgrounds can be gradients, or you can use animated bitmap image backgrounds.
WCS supports 24-bit rendering at any resolution and aspect ratio up to 32767 x 32767 pixels (memory permitting). Fractal recursion levels can be adjusted to speed rendering, and detailed 2D trees allow you to create realistic vegetation density without taking forever to render.
The program also sports sophisticated animation features.
Automatic turn-banking and lookahead features, as well as spline control Of all motion parameters, allow you to easily create landscape overflights.
An interactive 3D wireframe layout display lets you preview and tweak your work; real-time motion previews are supported as well. All spline parameters can be edited using a timeline motion graph.
The program is multi-threaded.
News 0a you uiant to treat, a place that's perfect fo pour needs? Oenmj Htkt discounts the only contende similar to Real 3D, so you can go on and do other work while creating images or animations.
The user interface is gorgeous - it uses MUI (Magic User Interface), which you may have already seen used in programs like the AVM voice mail system.
The program retails for S250. But until October 30 it is available direct from the manufacturer for S195.

Yes. It's true, there’s no more ASDG. But don’t panic, the company hasn’t closed, it’s just changed its name for the better.
Taking advantage of the success of its Elastic Reality morphing program (a souped-up version of Morph Plus for the PC, Mac, and SGI), ASDG has changed its name to Elastic Reality, Inc. Despite the name change and the success of its non-Amiga products, the company has pledged to continue to support our favourite computer.
DKB relocates DKB. Manufacturer of the MegdChip, Multistart II.

Tlideo super compang Some of the most creative forces in desktop video have now joined forces. Digital Creations, creators of Brilliance, DCTV, and the SuperGen; Progressive Image Technology, creator of peripherals for Pcs and Macs; and Play, formed by a group of renegade former NewTek employees, have merged into one large company which will be known as Play Incorporated.
The President of the company will be former NewTek VP Paul Montgomery, as well as Kiki Stockhammer, video-savvy spokesperson and dream date of many an Amiga nut. Digital Creations' John Botteri will serve as CEO.
Although two-thirds of the new company is made up of ex-Amigans, the initial prod’ ucts will be for the IBM-compatible platform.
Lop tip It’s not a new product, but it’s news from a US company that will be welcome to folks who bought Digital Creations' Brilliance 2.0 and found that it won’t work properly in a system with a Picasso II installed.
To make it work, you just need to add a few Tool Types to the program icons, using the Workbench Icons Information menu item.
For Brilliance, add these tooltypes: SCREEN.DEPTH=5 SCREEN.HEIGHT=200 SCREEN. WIDTH=320 SCREEN.OVERSCAN=Text SCREEN.MODEid=0x00011000 For the 24-bit TrueBrilliance version; SCREEN.DEPTH=6 SCREEN.HEIGHT=200 SCREEN.

sATiosvroe EDITORIAL Ill rtending shows is part and parcel of
almost any consumer magazine. As you'd expect, such gatherings
generally follow the same format - Kiss hands, snake babies,
chase-up gossip, hassle for products and so on.
H question of confidence With this in mind, I packed a bag and hea- red off to Florida to attended the world's r ggest computer graphics extravaganza,
- amefy Siggraph 94. Equipped with the stiffest strff upper lips,
I battled through glorious iunshine and on to the show.
After the ubiquitous trip to the press office, it was time to hit the stands and slip into show mode. However, it was at this point that the usual format went out the window. Within minutes I found myself answering rather than ask-
* ig the questions.
Hs time runs out all eyes looh to turope. The Question is can Mr Pleasance d To. Repair the damage inflicted bg months of indecision Even the biggest guns on the American Amiga scene were desperate for all and any news. Just prior to the event the Management buy-out rumour had hit. Now everyone previously secure in the knowledge that Samsung, Hewlett Packard or Superman would save the day were back to square one.
Obviously being one of the few limeys in'the attendance I was an obvious target, but unfortunately I was as much in the dark as everybody else. After explaining as much, the conversation invariably turned to research and development. Would they continue to support the Amiga?
Amazingly enough the vast majority had no hesitation in saying yes - providing the new look Commodore could get its act together! To be honest. I fully expected the vast majority to say enough’s enough, we're packing up and moving on to the PC or Macintosh.
Obviously, even the biggest names wouldn't find it easy to change direction at the drop of the hat, but it was the underlying willingness to stay with the machine that took me by surprise. The will is there, and so is the demand for machines, but as it stands there's simply no more high-end Amigas left to buy - both home and abroad.
According to gossip, production of A4000s won’t start until November at the earliest - assuming the corporate capers are sorted out.
And as far as R&D on new machines is concerned. God only knows. However there is a taint glimmer of hope.
Although there's been no official announcement, it appears that Commodore have doubled the wages of the engineering department at West Chester R&D research facility, no doubt in an attempt to keep the remaining staff until the long-awaited announcement is made.
For those waiting for the mythical A5000 with its Rise based CPU and Windows NT compatibility. I suspect it's going to be a long wait. However, one of the high points of the show was the first official look at the Raptor II and Raptor Plus rendering engines, Both units use Rise technology to bring workstation performance to the Amiga - in particularly Lightwave.
Each uses Ethernet connection to link direct to the Amiga while operating under Windows NT as the basic 0$ .
SAVIOUR This move towards compatibility between formats could well prove the saviour of the Amiga as the premier videographic desktop platform. Another massive announcement at the show was the launch of Lightwave on both PC and SGI formats.
Although seen as yet another nail in the Amiga coffin by some. I feel it can only help the cause in the long-term. If NewTek want to maintain and develop a foot-hold in both the PC and SGI markets they'll have to work hard in the R&D department - the fruits of which will also be applied to the Amiga version.
OK, the PC market may be massive but it’s the Amiga that dominates the video market, quite simply because the PC is useless for videography. They don’t like, nor understand video, and to teach them costs an absolute fortune in additional hardware.
They may be fast, but will that really inspire videographers to trade their existing Amiga systems, especially when they could out render an SGI for a fraction of the price by simply adding a Raptor to their existing kit.
Basically, the only thing that will kill the Amiga off is Commodore. The willingness to develop and buy the machine is there. All they have to do is get in gear before it's too late.
If this farcical situation isn't sorted out soon many developers will be forced to look elsewhere. Whether they want to or not.
The future of the Amiga hinges on one key factor. If the new look Commodore can’t get the range back in manufacture before Christmas it looks very grim.
Fortunately the likelihood of the Commodore bid being accepted seems more and more certain. According to a reliable source, a manufacturing deal is already in place to start production of the entire range in mainland China, while R&D will remain at West Chester.
Lets hope the red tape is kept to a minimum and the announcement made so we can all get back to business.

Ohe idea behind Pro-fills is very simple. If offers a range of attractive patterns and textures that can be used c trance video and desktop presentations, arc y.es the user the opportunity to design backdrops. Not too interesting in perhaps, but used with other utilities it scope for some impressive effects, first bit of good news is that you don't a super-fast Amiga to use the package, i *.1 range of Amiga resolutions is available TT'png from low to high) allowing the user to moose an option that suits their needs and re speed of their machine.
Smilarly, there is a choice between eight end 16 colour palettes, a useful point since ne Amiga will move images with an eight :: cm palette more quickly than with the Luckily for European users, this American racxage can be configured for PAL as well as HTSL Another basic but important point is mat it comes with an option to install and assign the program into a hard-drive.
When booted, the user is presented with a rrab but functional control menu from which to generate and save an impressive range of rackdrops quickly and easily.
There is also support for overscan in a
- umber of settings, an important addition if the owner wants to
use Pro-fills for video applications.
The quality of the backgrounds is generally of a good standard with some detailed shad- og. And with three disks to choose from there should be more than enough choice for most users.
Patterns range from simple brick tiles and weaves to sandstone or wood-like effects, all ooasting fully interchangeable palettes. This is one reason why, with a bit of experimentation.
* becomes clear that the simple control box belies the package’s
versatility. In fact, the Ham does it work Compared to some
other programs designed to create backgrounds. Profill uses
only a tiny amount of memory.
The reason behind this is that the patterns are composed of small brushes, each of which only takes 1-3K.
These brushes can be seamlessly tiled together, allowing entire screens to be generated in any resolution without making large demands on hard- drive space.
Distributors claim that the Pro-fills package can generate 34,625 backgrounds at a maximum resolution of 10,240 by 10,240.
Having said this, other packages offer backdrops that are more visually impressive.
However, these tend to use up huge chunks of memory while at the same time costing a great deal more.
The Control Bom: It doesn't exactly till you with eMcitomont, does it? Still, all tho essentials are there in on easy- to-use Interlace The point about Pro-fills by comparison is that each backdrop brush takes only a minimal amount of memory. Furthermore, the program gives an estimation of the memory that a new backdrop will use. Which is another small but well considered touch.
Of course, the possibilities offered by Profills come to life when it is used in conjunction with other utilities. Pro-fills is particularly good value because you can use it with packages like Deluxe-paint. Brilliance and Scala to create customised effects.
For instance, you can generate your own brushes in D-Paint, though you may have to adjust your palette - taking care you leave enough colours for your text and logos.
For people who own presentation software like Scala or MediaPoint. Profills could make a very useful accessory. Purchasers should be able to use the package to good effect for all kinds of multimedia and video applications.

(uer wished you could create professional presentations without spending a fortune on the software ? Careth lofthouse finds out if Pro-fills offers a solution.
Bargain backdrops Considering the minimal amount of memory required, the range of possibilities are surprisingly good. What's more, it makes attractive presentations available to owners of Amigas both old and new.
It's a humble package that doesn't offer the flashy effects available with other, more expensive utilities, but it does its job well because its makers have been thoughtful in its implementation.
Used imaginatively. Pro-fills could be invaluable when it comes to presention.
Mediascape deserve credit for coming up with a modest but capable little package.

When this has finished, click on Proceed again to start the de-archiving procedure. When the application has been de-archived you will be told where the dearchived files are. Click once again on Proceed to finish.
If at any time you are unsure as to whether you want to continue installing, you can click on the Abort Install button.
Occasionally, utilities may need to add instructions to your User-Startup file located in the S directory so that they will function correctly. If you want to add the instructions, dick on Proceed when prompted.

Just make sure you insert a blank disk when the Installer programs tell you - and not before or after.
O o o o o Installing utilities The procedure for installing utilities is much the same as installing applications, except that you can boot from your hard drive or Workbench disk. As utilities don't need to be de-archived, you are asked to specify a directory on your hard drive or Workbench disk where you would like to install them.
If you don't want to install to the default directory you can change it by clicking on Change Destination. The Show Drives button will allow you to select a new device and directory. You can create a new drawer for your utility to go in by clicking on the Make New Drawer button and typing in the name.
You can also make a utilities disk by running the MakeUtilitiesDisk1,3 program located in the WB_1.3_only drawer and installing your utilities to here. At times you may be asked if you want to install a utility's documentation. A tick box indicates that the documentation is selected for inclusion, but you can click on the box to ignore it or simply dick on the Skip This Part button.

3“$ :- IwftiBMrl Edge 2.0 alio we you to configure it totally. This makes Edge a more personal piaca of aoftwara giving you plenty of time to make up your
- rind to upgrade.
Let's take a look at the many features of your demonstration version of Edge 2.0. '.' hen the program loads you will be presented with the main editing window. At the pottom of this window are several important variables - line number, column number, | for insert text mode or O for overstrike typing mode. K if the keypad is active, the decimal ASCII value of the character under the cursor, the number of lines.
* iie size in bytes, number of changes, page number and page line
number.
Most of Edge's menus are self explanatory but you also have plenty of control over how Edge 2.0 looks, feels and works vta the Settings menu. Click and hold down the right mouse button and select Settings from the top of the screen. Move down to Local and release the button.
You will be provided with the ConfigEdge window along with several preference topics. It is clearly obvious what these topics do but they also make up an important element in Edge's power.
That is. To be able to customise the program to your own needs. Obviously you can't save the configuration file but any changes you make will remain while the program is running.
As we will be explaining Edge in much more detail next month we will cover the basic concepts of the program, including bas*c menu options this month.
Looking at the first menu - Project - the first three options read Clear, Open and Include. Clear will erase the current text from the page, Open will allow you to load up a text file no larger than 32k and Include will allow you to insert a chosen text file at the cursor position on the present editing window. The Save, Save As. Print and Print As all allow you to direct your text file to either a disk or printer, The Windows menu allows you to alter the way in which the text editing windows are displayed. All text editing takes place in a window.
Edit is where you can basically cut, copy and paste selected text. If you double-click the left mouse button over a character in your text file the cursor turns black.
If you click the button again, but this time hold it down and drag the mouse pointer, you will notice that the text between the pointer and the initial cursor position is highlighted in white. The highlighted section of text is referred to as a block. This means that you can cut. Copy and paste large sections of text in one go.
In accordance with all the best text editors, Edge 2.0 supplies a comprehensive find and replace function appropriately enough in the Find Replace window. This means that you can search for specific criteria and replace any occurrences with something else.
This is very useful for mailing lists or as a mail-merge facility. Another very useful addition to the Find Replace menu is the Block to Find Buffer and Block to Replace Buffer. This allows you to select text, as explained above and copy it into either the find buffer or replace buffer. If you have loading Edge B.0 To install Edge 2.0 boot your Amiga with CoverDisk 1 and then click on the Edge2.0 icon.
This will decompress Edge 2.0 to a fresh disk which you should have ready to insert when prompted.
0ut*ut ptt;' Laft !? | |l9tlt l HrWn mil j Htifcr titlf | [M«*r «¦ * j fo t«r tltU j l«dv (alt unwanted characters in your text that are not alphabetical or numerical characters you can simply select them and copy them into the appropriate buffer rather that working round the keyboard trying to find out what key combination produces them.
Definitely a powerful addition to Edge’s arsenal is its Macro facility. We will be explaining Macros in the next tutorial but basically they allow you to record a series of activated events which can then be replayed at a later date.
For example, you may want to change a text file and apply this change over ail future files. You would Macro record the changes using the original file and fhen replay the Macro on all the other files.
With the basic functions explained you should be fairly confident with Edge. There are many more exciting features to Edge
2. 0 and we’ll have more on these next month.

This will greatly Improve your speed but only for a limited amount of time. Be warned, you only have a limited amount of nitros and they burn fuel rapidly so use them cautiously.
Also, make sure you employ the nitro at the correct times. If you're haring up the track at 140KPH and then decide to switch in the nitro you may find yourself desperately trying to steer round a bend you hadn't noticed. If you slud the car you're looking at a lot of damage. Familiarise yourself with the track and then let loose. If you have a two- player game you can attempt to drive your opponent off the track, but beware of damage. Sustain too much damage and yOu will be disqualified which is no way for a dude to go out.
At the end of the race, and provided you have successfully qualified, you will be shown the championship table and the race grid positions.
Unfortunately, that's where it ends. You'll have to go out and buy the full version if you want to know what happens next.
When the Top Gear 2 information screen appears, just wait for a short while and you will be returned to the main options screen. This is immediate for those who fail to qualify. Have fun and burn rubber!

HmiDock Author: Gary Knight AmiDock is a superb little utility which allows you to launch programs simply by clicking on the appropriate image.
Implementing a very unique interface, you can create brush images for a particular application and incorporate them into the interface.
Once you have created an appropriate assign (see installation instructions) double-click the AmiDock icon and a set of pre-defined images will appear at the right-hand side of the Workbench screen.
If you click on the square gadget alongside the two arrows you will then be able to access AmiDock's menus.
You will also notice that by clicking and holding down the mouse button over the square, you can drag the icons to wherever you want.
The Item menu allows you to add and delete new files as you wish, but you should first design an appropriate icon in your favourite paint package, grab it as a brush and save it to the drawer of your appropriate Workbench resolution - interlace or non-interlace.
With the brush defined you can then add the program into AmiDock, Select Add from the Edit menu and click the Load button. This will allow you to select the file - the file name will be reflected in the Name string, You then select a With AmiDock you can attach image brushes to programs and run thorn from the Workbench by a single click brush for the application and also choose whether it is a CLI or Workbench program. Once you okay your settings the new program will be attached to the AmiDock interface, Installation Once you have installed AmiDock you must set up an assign in your

SuperDuper il.l Author: Sebastiano Vigna Workbench 2 and above only SuperDuper is a lightning fast disk copier and formatter that is tar more efficient than the Workbench diskcopy and format routines.
The program also has the ability to buffer disk contents into RAM. Which means that if you are duplicating a disk on to several other disks you only need read the source disk once.
Once you have loaded SuperDuper you will be presented with a very attractive user-interface which is divided into three sections.
The first section allows you to choose which function you want to apply to disks - whether it be copying, formatting or checking - the mid -section provides buttons to select the source and destination drives and the last section offers several modes allowing you to change the way in which the data is copied, formatted and checked.
When performing an operation, you can click on the Info buttons which will display the progress of the current operation and any information that may prove useful.
You can also select preferences regarding SuperDuper s functions and storage areas by clicking the Options button and changing the buttons.
These preferences can then be saved by clicking SaveCon.

Nothing rivals SuperDuper for speed DIDSWurkBenrh Author: ParCon Software Originally. DMS was written as a CLI program which when run provided the user with somewhat confusing instructions on how to actually compress and decom- press disks.
Fortunately. ParCon Software has come to the rescue by providing a user-friendly, intuition interface for DMS which provides a series of gadgets that allow complete control over DMS. Without the need for constantly referring back to the command syntax.
When you first load up DMSWorkBench you are greeted by an attractive looking interface with a series of buttons. The most useful of these buttons is Read and Write. These allow you to actually compress and decompress disks with the minimum amount of fuss.
When you click on the Read button you will be hant vxu mi You can bring a welcome face-lift to DMS with DMS Workbench. Compress and decompress disks with ease asked for a filename and location where the eventual compressed disk file should be stored. Users of 1Mb RAM are not advised to save their DMS files to RAM.
When you have decided this, click on the Drive button to set the target drive and then on Start to begin compression.
To the right-hand side of the interface you will be able to monitor the progress of compression, including the current track being compressed and the time taken. Any errors will also be flashed.
Write works in much the same way - you select the DMS tile you wish to decompress, the disk drive you wish to decompress to and then click on Start to begin.
You can also compress and decompress high density and PC disks by clicking on the appropriately labelled button.

Hi- HARDWARE with the V. Fast, when you're on, you’re on.
The modem not only auto adjusts its connect rate to match the incoming signal, but also it has ASL, or adaptive speed levelling, allowing the modem to change speeds for more reliable signals while it is on-line.
(Normally if you had to change rates you had to disconnect and reconnect after you’d adjusted the speed.)
It has fax ability, as both a class 1 and class 2 fax software. As yet class 2 software is only available for the Supra (if memory Is this the best modem ever? Well, okay it is sleek and black and sexy looking, and it is one of the fastest things on four little rubber feet. It's very flat too, so it can sit under your phone.
Erm, well at least if your phone has enough clearance underneath, as there is a big ridge on top of the modem and on my phone it lifted the rubber feet on the phone off the surface, meaning that the phone just slid around on top.
But that's a petty niggle, as I usually sit a disk drive or a pot of pens on top of the modem anyway.
Modems are really coming down in price, as there was a time when the next big thing, which V. Fast certainly is, would be at least six times more expensive than the current workaday standard. But it’s now cheaper than ever before to get into V. Fast comms.
T's an undeniable fact that modems are getting fast. V. Fast in fact, as this is the latest standard to which every modem user aspires.
The first modem out there with this standard was the Supra model reviewed last ssue. And this new Courier model is US Robotics answer to that, if indeed the Supra ¦as a question.
V. Fast modems operate at 28,800 baud, j- extreme turn of speed
for the information
- ungry ‘90s, and a baud rate unsurpassed r the history of comms.
This is double the speed of the fastest modems available, and they in turn were double the speed of the previous models.
You have to ask yourself where all this is going to end?
Modems which are so fast they download tie file, of any size, virtually instantly? A 2Mb download in the time it takes to click !he mouse? It seems impossible now but thmk about it.
The modem I have next to my Amiga is seven times faster than the first moderh I owned, and that was only seven years ago.
If the speed of modems doubles every year or so. Where will we be in another seven years? The 3,686,400 baud modem will be a reality, for sure, and probably faster still.
The current crop of modems are fast, you got that bit right, but they also have another bunch of features to do with what modems do as well as sit there being modems.
Most modems are now also fax machines, enabling users to send and receive faxes to and from their computers.
No modem worth the name has anything
• ess than fax ability.
But these new modems have other features in common too. The Courier is a
28. 800 baud modem, in the V. Fast class and. Like many other
modems of this class, :s software upgradable. Special
software can load itself into EPROMS in the unit to upgrade
the software in the machine to a gher standard, US Robotics
has a BBS in the US which carries software upgrades for the
modems, it has a quick connect feature, which cuts the
"training" time, like when the modem connects to a service.
Usually this can rage between nine and 20 seconds with a conventional modem, but Sexq or mot?
VERSATILE serves), although it shouldn't be long until the guys at Greg Perry Software come up with a new version of GPFax to match these new machines.
There is a button on the front of the machine which has a unique function. It is the voice data toggle switch, and this enables you to switch from voice to data without issuing an AT command.
Although most phones allow you to use the modem and use the phone one after the other without a problem, some phone modem combinations have a problem with handset exclusion.
This enables you to switch from data to voice and back again, as some units have a problem with that, and you may not be able to get back to data once you've switched to voice.
You can only do this when the modem is off-line. If you are on-line and you hit the voice switch, you will terminate the data line. The button also enables you to set the modem for remote access, if you want to call the modem and access your computer Phil South looks at the latest in BB.B technology from US Bobotics from a remote Site.

OS 3.1 FEATURE hi Os many of my friends will tell you. I am pretty disorganised in life. Sure. I like neatness, but I'd rather someone else took care of it for me. I'm the of person who only does the washing up wrier there are no more dean plates.
3ut on my machine I'm as strict as a drill iargeant. I know where to find every file on . Machine and nothing gets introduced to . Machine unless I know where it should be 3tl guess this tidiness is an obsession made
• crse by the number of machines I tend to
- at are completely disorganised. Amiga : ers have it easy in a
number of ways I'll x nto later, but they seem the worst of the
:tnch most of the time.
I've visited clients and not been even able
• 3 put stuff on their machine because I don't oow where it
should go, and worse still, nei- ner d»d they!
Hiopefully this article should be able to help m one with a hard drive-equipped Amiga to ze a little tidier with very little effort (and make my job easier to boot!).
Firstly, many of you reading this article know little about AmigaDOS and care less.
That's okay, you don't need to know. For those interested there is a boxout detailing all those different directories that come as standard on every Amiga, but for the rest of you, rest easy.
I'm not going to get you to write AmigaDOS scripts or ask you to remember obscure shell commands. Well, you might need to type in a couple of sentences, but that's all.
The first way that the Amiga beats the PC and Macintosh lies in the assign command.
This allows you to get access to the files you want quickly and easily.
Say you do a lot of graphics work, pictures. Animations, brushes and so on.
Wouldn't it be easy if. Instead of having to go through all the different drawers of your hard drive picking files here and there, you could have them all in one place, easily accessible from any program that needs them? Well, it is easy. All you need to do is make an assign.
The way to make an assign is to create a drawer on your hard drive called, for the sake of argument. Bitmaps.
Done that? Okay then, now all you need to do to assign that drawer is to open a shell window and type: Assign Bitatps: ,***:Blt«»ps where represents the name of the hard drive where you put the Bitmaps drawer.
Now if you go into any paint, image processing or animation In the best Files not found, crashing hard driues and cryptic massages. On any of these sound familiar?
FranH fiord dons his mhite coat and patches up your dmiga Ill FEATURE program and hit the Volumes button when you use the file requester you should see Bitmaps: in the list.
The best thing of all is it will taKe the same amount of mouse clicKs to reach no matter where it is on you hard drive. The only problem is that when you reboot there won't be a “bitmaps: assign” again unless you retype it in the Shell.
Hon might end up searching through an enormous list of assigns to tm and find tire one nou mart I’m sure you don't really want to have to do that, so the best way around it is to edit the User-Startup file. To do so just open a Shell window - I won't get you to do this much more. I promise - and type: Ed S:Uier-st«rtap Once you have hit the return key a new
• Bitmaps: for pictures
• Anims: for animations
• Brushes:for brushes (you might want to put these in Bitmaps
instead, seeing as they are pictures in their own right)
• Docs: for DTP documents or word processed letters
• Text: for ASCII text files
• WP: for word processed files
• Sheets: for spreadsheet files
• Downloads: for Comms, to put all your downloaded files into
• Uploads: same again for files for uploading. You might even
want to separate the files another way. Say Homework: or by a
clients name.
It's all UBS: and DETIS: window should open up. It might say at the bottom “Creating new file" if you haven't had your Amiga long, but the chances are that it will have some text in it already.
Just move the cursor down to the bottom of the file and add the “Assign Bitmaps:" line we already tried. While you're in there you might want to add some more assigns.
Table I shows you some to get you started Whatever is simplest usually works best.
After all, you might end up searching through an enormous list of assigns to try and find the one you want, which rather defeats the object of the whole exercise.
Now, every time you boot your machine you will have all those convenient assigns.
The location of the drawer is unimportant because you will never have to search through the normal route to reach it - no more DH1 :OtherStuff Things wossna mes newbits DPaint Pictures... PARTITIONS By the way, before you reboot to take advantage of all those great assigns you’ve just made, make sure you have created the necessary drawers for them.
There now, that wasn't so painful was it?
And I promise that I won't get you to use the Shell again.
Onto the next phase in reorganisation.
This is a bit of a two-parter. The first bit is standard to any Amiga. First of all, let’s assume most of you have the standard two partitions that hard drive-equipped Amigas come with, normally Workbench: and Work: for A600. A1200 and A4000 owners.
If you only have one partition most of this stuff is going to be redundant, but don't stop reading. If you have loads of little partitions. What are you doing? Each partition you have chews up extra RAM and reduces the overall size of your hard drive.
IhG Tools menu In Workbench 2 there is a Tools menu at the top of your screen. If you have just bought your Amiga it is quite likely that this menu only contains the command “ResetWB".
If you've had your machine for longer you might have already got either ToolManager, ToolsDaemon or one of the other Tools menu utilities in your WBStartup drawer.
These programs are commodities that allow you to put your favourite programs in the Tools menu or create new menus of your own to put your programs in. This saves all the hassle of having to click through endless drawers trying to find the programs you want to run.
I use a combination of both ToolManager and ToolsDaemon to give If you are confused about all the different drawers with cryptic names on your Workbench partition, then read on. Your Workbench disk consists of various essential drawers necessary for the successful operation of Workbench.
Listing them alphabetically, the first we come to is C:. This drawer contains all the AmigaDOS commands used in the Shell, or by the startup- sequence and user-startup.
Some C. commands over the years have been moved from the C: directory and put into the Kickstart ROM. Which is why looking for the Echo command, for instance, is a waste of time.
There are no icons for any of these files because the programs they represent are not used from the Workbench, but only from the Shell.
H you are running Workbench 3 the next drawer we come to is Classes. Classes contains various Hems to do with running Workbench, the main ones being datatypes for use with Multiview (and any other datatype-supporting program), and gadgets for object-oriented programming.
These gadgets are things like the colour gradient wheel in the Preferences program Palette'.
They make it easier for programmers to incorporate standard features in their programs without hwing to recreate them from scratch.
The next drawer in our list is DEVS: This name is short for devices and is inside other drawers pertaining to the various devices attached to or part of your Amiga - for instance, monitor drivers, printer drivers or keyboard drivers.
In the main pari of DEVS: there are also files: the actual device drivers themselves, serial.device. parallel device and printer.device and various others. If you used ParNET, your par- net.device and parnet mountlist would go In DEVS:.
Next up is Expansion. This doesn't get used as much these days as it did under Workbench 1.3 but is similar to DEVS: in that it is used to hold drivers for additional hardware like hard drive controllers or graphics cards.
COMMANDS This drawer is more than likely empty on your machine. When your Amiga boots, a command is Issued in the startup-sequence called bind- drivers.
This loads all the .device programs in DEVS, along with the selected printer, monitor and keyboard drivers. It also then looks in the Expansion drawer to see if there is anything in there, and if there is, it loads that too.
On to Li. L: isn't used as much these days either. It used to be where the disk validator lived, along with various other essentials which have now been incorporated into Kickstart.
It still holds "handlers" which are similar to .device programs. It doesn't have an icon because there is no point loading the programs manually as they are all set up on booting.
LIBS: is our next port of call in this tour of Workbench. UBS: (short for libraries surprisingly enough) is where our Amiga scores another advantage over other systems.
The Amiga uses a set of linked libraries that can be used by any program. They only get loaded as necessary and even if several programs are using the same library, that library only needs to be loaded once.
Libraries are programs that never need to be loaded manually, hence the lack of an icon for this drawer or the files inside.
If you are running Workbench 2.1 or higher the next drawer we come to is Locale. Locale makes your Amiga more user-friendly to chums all across the globe.
Next on our list of interesting places to visit on your Workbench disk is Prefs. This is the most used drawer on many people's hard drive as they choose all sorts of garish patterns for Workbench backdrops, change their fonts for menus and icons, or show people how silly a mouse pointer they can create.
Inside the Prefs drawer resides another NOVEMBER 1994 32 ny ?
E jusr at t*6 ¦nan: onge- lithe- of the you- s tha: imsr* ius o' This clic» id the bor give an added bonus for ToolManager users, it is Xmtito to create a dock window or place icons on Workbench screen. The dock can be spread hori- rraty or vertically and can have its items duplicated r re menu.
RTa*y. A couple of tips for using these programs.
Wa*e sure you pay careful attention to the “Work Ifedory:” setting in ToolManager. If you are using a irxram that only uses one sort of file, text say. Then iq- an set the “WorkDirectory:" to your Text: assign, ““is means that when you load up your text editor ograms in the Tools menu and seven other nduding Prefs; which has all the preferences j-ottb m it. And Graphics; which has all my paint arc i' mation tools, including a sub-menu for 3D aogams that I use regularly.
Zre of the nicest things about both these pro- tits is that you don’t have to type anything in to get ¦xr programs running - all you have to do is drag v* con for the program you want to run into the " :cManager or ToolsDaemon window and that’s it.
30NUS from the menu, whenever you open a file the file requester will automatically start in your Text: directory.
With ToolsDaemon you can actually perform more than one action with a single menu click. By entering items manually in the right-hand window of ToolsDaemon you can build up a list of events that occur.
You might want to change screenmode and your mouse pointer at the same time, or make an assign only when you run a particular program. It's very easy.
Am m rc 3MB? Well, that’s just not big enough if
- e going to have lots of fonts. Arexx icrcts and Tools is it?
V to i jnde y big man.
I on* ork stuf mes mrrts etc files II the II the jnch ten 5 only way to get around it is to move ri ~ose files elsewhere, or to limit what you ai :r your hard drive. Now. I don't believe r mtmg myself, so I’d rather go for the for-
• m than the latter, but it’s up to you.
And I know I promised not to have to
- • 4* you use the Shell again, but if you ¦art your machine to
be in tip-top condition tou 'e just going to have to edit that
startup- seoience.
5c open a Shell window and type: Ed S:Startup-sequ*nei and hit return. This time there should definitely be some text extant in the file. Now look out for the bit where all the assigns crop up. There should be one for FONTS:, one for REXX: and a path statement for Tools.
We’ll deal with the REXX: assign first as it’s the easiest. Simply change the line to read: Assign REIX: where **** is the name of your larger hard drive partition. This actually helps in more ways than one.
Firstly, it will stop your Workbench partition from getting clogged up and secondly you might have noticed that, by default, REXX: is assigned to S:.
Well. S: is where your startup-sequence, user-startup and other similar files are located and if you end up with umpteen Arexx scripts in the same drawer it’s going to make it tough to find your user-startup when you want it. Again, do remember to create the Arexx drawer where you have assigned it.
The part of the startup-sequence where FONTS: are assigned looks a little more complex what with all the “If exists" statements, but they don't really matter. Just cut out these lines: IF NOT EXISTS SYS:fonts Assign FONTS: EndlF
- sportant directory by the name of Env-Arehive.
Er . Archive (which has the assign ENVARC:) contains all the settings for Workbench, as well as quite a few other programs.
R to con ims r ol igiy her that get ro- nly be for the kes ail on ost hey ich ine iter ter Every time you boot your machine whatever is
- ENVARC: gets copied to a directory called 01V: in RAM. This is
to allow temporary seetings « programs.
For instance choosing Use rather than Save in £oy of the Preferences programs will result in a He being saved in ENV: rather than ENVARC: SO r*t when you reboot it is lost.
After Prefs comes Rexxc which Is far less inter- esong. Rexxc is the place where the Arexx server programs reside and gets a visit from most Amiga users about as often as Outer Mongolia.
SCRIPTS Sbpping out of Rexxc we drop hurriedly into S:.
S ts for scripts and that is what we find in here.
The two main inhabitants are the Startup- ~*qoence and user-startup which are the scripts to teU the Amiga what to do when it is booting.
After S: on some machines running Workbench 2.1 or higher there comes Storage.
This is a storeroom for unwanted files in DEVS:. It
- olds all the other printer keyboard and monitor
• ivers that aren't currently being used.
Once you have found your Storage disk we'll * oft Spec 4a I Offer!
Tha colour whool and slider in this window are example» of gadgets move onto the System drawer. The system drawer contains, for the most part, programs that might make more sense being in the C: drawer.
Some of the programs, of course, need to be available via icons, and that is why they reside here. You should find Shell. Format and RexxMast in here, among others.
After System comes T: for temp. T: is usually assigned to RAM: so you probably won't find much in here. Files you find in here immediately after a reboot can be deleted as they are temporary files created by some program or other that haven't been cleared up. Either because the machine crashed or you rebooted without closing everything down first.
Following that, the Tools drawer looms up. If you are really short on space a lot of the programs in Tools can be deleted. If for instance you are not the proud owner of an A600 or A1200 you can merrily rid yourself of the PrepCard tool as it applies only to machines with a PCMCIA slot.
CMD. GraphicDump and PrintFiles have all got replacements inside
other programs, and Memacs is a text editor based on the
Unix standard Emacs. It too can be deleted if you are
already using another program to edit text files.
Our penultimate stopover is Utilities. This drawer contains More: the text reader, a clock and. If you are running Workbench 3. Multiview.
Last but definitely not least, is WBStartup.
When your Amiga boots it looks into this drawer and runs any programs it finds there. Most programs that get put into WBStartup are called Commodities and are useful little tools like screenbiankers. Virus checkers or Workbench improvers.
If you ere not sure about where to put files and the documentation accompanying them gives you no clues, it is not usually a good idea just to shove them into C: or UBS: or whatever.
NOVEMBER 1994 1 FEATURE and replace them with this line: Assign Fonts: where **** is the name of your larger hard dnve partition.
Okay, that's that sorted. Did you make the fonts drawer? The last part of messing with the startup-sequence deals with the path statement for Tools.
This is slightly less important than dealing with the assigns, especially if you never use the Shell. However, just for completeness sake, if you are going to make Work: the new home for your Tools drawer, simply change the path statement from:

into the new locations we’ve been creating. ' So now just

scripts to your Arexx drawer (this one might be tougher as
you'll have to be able to tell the difference between an Arexx
script and an ordinary AmigaDOS script.
The easiest way to work it out is that Arexx scripts always start with the characters *).
You should also take some time moving all your pictures, text files, spreadsheets, and so on into the new assigned drawers you have created.
MANAGEMENT If you are sitting there right now wondering how on earth you are going to do all this file moving you obviously don't have any sort of file management program.
Quarterback is extremely last at backing up to tape If you don't, shame on you. Uncle Frank’s rule number one: If you’ve got a hard drive, you need a file management program. There are plenty of them out there, some are free and others cost dosh and I've listed a few of each in a boxout later on.
OBB * * i ..**2. j j ££ mi Go to it. Once you have finished moving ail the files around that you need you s-nould be ready for a reboot. You should now have a hard drive that isn't difficult to na .gate. and as long as you continue to
- se the Bitmaps: drawer for all your pieces. The Docs: drawer
for all your DTP
* -es and the WP: drawer for all your left's you should find
life with your Amiga
- :-e productive and even easier than fleui buttons Customising
your file manager is one of the most profitable things you can
do - productivity-wise. Being able to achieve complex
operations like de-archiving or editing startup-sequences at
the touch of a single button or menu item will save you an
awful lot of time in the long run. At the expense of a little
tinkering now.
For instance, now that we have set up all those assigns in our User-startup, wouldn't it be nice to make them easy to get at in Directory Opus?
Nothing could be simpler. Go into the configure program and click on the Buttons icon. Find an empty button and click on it.
This should bring up the Button Edit screen. In here you should give your button a name, which should be the assign (let's assume we are working on a Bitmaps: assign, so call the button Bitmaps:), then where you enter what that button does, add the command: Sctndir Bitmaps: and hit return. That command should now appear in the command list. Next, hit OK HDIoal5 To complement the list of useful commodities elsewhere on these pages, here are some useful, if not essential, hard drive utilities. You should definitely have at least one in each of the following categories, both on your hard
drive and on floppy should your hard drive fail.
Backup software -1 know backing up's a drag and seems like a waste of time and disks, but it is a good idea to at least make a backup prior to changing the status of your hard drive, repartitioning it for instance.
Backup software available includes: _iiUl ss • 4 [_25_J ?S EDS r ro:rm _
• » rsxr T M«|Mt if. J*-** fr Mf *«•
|Mr.l«*i,lnto.laan*CTl«AO Mkm f Ohptay Mi n«min hafct* b*«,n.
Wm and carry on making as many new buttons as you need.
If you are using a recent revision o?
Directory Opus, you can actually put two commands on a single button by using either the left or right mouse button to select it which will double up the number of assigns you can comfortably fit on your Dopus screen.
DiskMaster owners don't have it so good in this regard. I can't seem to create the Cmd Menu commands to get the same functionality, but never mind.
With DiskMaster, however, you can arrange matters so that every time you load DiskMaster it will have the same directory list up as the last time you quit.
The only caveat with this method is that you should keep a backup of your Startup.DM file in case you do something wrong, quit and it gets saved that way.
All you need do now is edit the start- up.dm file and where the Quit menu item is you should change it so that the line reads.
AddAenu Project, Quit, 4, SmConfij TooLs:Startup.DFt;8uit You might also want to put the following line in after:
• HDBackup; free with hard drive-base: Amigas. Not very good, but
will do at a pinch.
• Quarterback: Getting better all the time Now up to version 6
and can at last do multiple volume backups. Support for tape]
streamers is very good with excellent backup rates,
• Ami-Back: My choice of backup software Not as fast as
Quarterback, but can perform multiple backups and comes with a
sched*] uler to give you reminders of when to bacx up your hard
drive, and which will perform] that backup automatically if
desired.

- -ig Commodore’s software. The is very comprehensive, if a
little »r*-sog at times.
Here are some of my favourite time-saving commodities, You might not want to use them all if your machine is lacking in memory, drive space or processor power.
ARQ - This makes Workbench look a lot prettier with animated requesters popping up centre screen rather than in the top left- hand corner. You can also use the Return key for OK and the Esc key for Cancel.
AssignX - Ever get those annoying requesters popping up saying “Please insert volume blah in any drive...?"
AssignX gives you new options apart from Retry and Cancel. The most important is Assign. Hitting this button will bring up a file requester allowing you to assign volume Blah to whatever directory you choose.
ClickToFront - One of the only Commodore-supplied commodities that I use, it is at its most useful when you change the tooltype to read: "QUALIFI- ER=NONE". This way, double-clicking on a window will bring it to the front of the stack.
CyeleToMenu2 - This changes cyde gadgets into those nifty little pop-up menus you see on other machines.
FOCO - or Format Controller. With this commodity installed, inserting an unformatted floppy into a drive will bring up a requester asking if you wish to format it.
FOCO's only downside is that it doesn't offer a facility to format DCFS disks.
MagicMenu - This terrific tool lets you use your right mouse button to bring up menus anywhere on the screen.
MFR - Magic File Requester is just that. If a program uses the standard ASL file requester. Req or ReqTools requesters, MFR replaces them with its own. MFR has customisable positioning, fonts and even scrollbars, but its most useful feature is the ability to delete or rename files and make directories while its window is open.
Swazlnfo - Only for users of Workbench 3 and up. It replaces the normal icon information window with a much better one, giving drag and drop facilities for changing the icon image, networking ownership bits (not too useful, this one) and various other features.
Other tools TitleCiock - I've been waiting for this tool for a very long time. I had always seen that on other machines that didn't have the multiple screen philosophy of the Amiga, titlebar clocks were always available. Well now there's one for the Amiga too. It will jump to the frontmost screen at all times and has a very configurable dateAime.
ToolManager & ToolsDaemon - The best aid to productivity. Look around these pages for the boxout about them.
VirusChecker - John Veldthuis' VirusChecker is a program no hard drive owner should be without. It's better to be safe than sorry.
Along with these commodities, a few of the Shell-based utilities I would not be without include: KingCon - A replacement for the CON: device that gives drag and drop directory manipulation, command line history, name completion and saveable buffer, among other benefits.
InstallNewAlert - Whenever your Amiga crashes you get a red alert box with two cryptic numbers in it. One is the task that caused the crash, the other is the reason it caused the crash. InstallNewAlert gives you these facts in plain English.
FontCacheX - Got an enormous fontlist?
FontcacheX puts it into RAM: so although the first time you check your fonts directory it will take the same time as normal, subsequent reads will be much swifter, in some cases almost instantaneous. A great help if you are using Dpaint or changing the style of your Workbench.
Move - This Shell command does exactly what it says, it moves files (what did you expect?).
SnoopDOS - Don't you just hate it when you have a program that just won’t run and you can’t figure out why? Well, SnoopDOS should be able to help out with problems of this sort, and as such is a necessity for all hard drive owners (especially as it is a Public Domain program).
What is it? Well, as you should be able to see from the picture, SnoopDOS resembles a shell window with current tasks scrolling upwards through it.
SnoopDOS will tell you what files a program is looking for and, more importantly, will inform you if there are any failures to load or open a file. Because SnoopDOS gives a path, it means it is usually pretty easy to see where any problems you are having lie.

gadget under the mouse, making it easy to learn how to use

If you want to sample your handiwork, TypeSmith allows you to print samples of your fonts. Earlier versions of the program would only print individual characters or a limited sample of the characters.
Version 2.5 will print a complete font reference sheet, with samples of all the characters printed next to their ASCII values.
Soft-Logik's newly upgraded TypeSmith : 5 ;ets you convert both PostScript and "-jeType fonts for use on the Amiga - now can find virtually any typeface for your v*ga.
TypeSmith allows you to design your own '¦ceface and save it in any supported format.
N fact, TypeSmith is primarily a font ses*gn and modification editor, although

tweaks to type- TRUETYPE The biggest improvement to version 2.5
is T« addition of TrueType support. TrueType the font

Implementation Value for money Overall_ TypeSmith is the only
game in town when it comes to creat- ing and converting outline
fonts on the Amiga, so Soft-Logik could easily have rested on
their laurels and expected it to sell itself.
Instead, the company has taken an already good program and made it nearly perfect. There are still a few nits to pick - autotrace could be made a bit smarter, for instance - but overall it's a wonderful program.
If you use your Amiga for desktop publishing or video titling, this program is a must-have, as it opens the door to using virtually every popular font in existence on your favourite computer.
And if you own a PC or Mac along with your Amiga, or use an emulator, you can use TypeSmith to convert typefaces, so you can have access to the same typefaces on all the platforms you use.
RFF, an IFF format that allows for very fast loading and saving, but is so far only used by TypeSmith.
You can also load and save bitmapped fonts (standard Amiga bitmaps, PostScript ABF. Or Soft-Logik format), as well as Amiga IFF bitmap pictures (useful if you want to scan a printed typeface).
New commands to remove unnecessary points and correct path directions to PostScript standard are handy for both converted and traced fonts.
TypeSmith’s font editing features aren't changed in this version, but they were already pretty complete to begin with.
Using an interface similar to PageStream’s, with multiple editing windows and a floating tool bar, you can load one or many fonts, and simultaneously display multiple characters from each font.
You can copy, cut, and paste characters from one font to another, a feature useful for adding missing characters, such as the pound or copyright symbols, to incomplete fonts.
Outline fonts are edited using splines. You can also create and edit bitmap fonts, although TypeSmith’s features are geared more for outline use.
Characters can be rotated, flipped, or skewed (useful as a start for creating an italic font) individually or throughout the entire font. A help bar at the bottom of the window the ujau TypeSmith has been upgraded. Sow you ran use euery papular font in enistenre.

technology marches ever onward, even an 040 A4000 can be found
wanting when it comes to rendering and using other high-end
applications. As a result the race is now on to squeeze even
more speed from the machine.
As it stands there's two schools of thought. You can either pump up the existing technology or opt for power of Rise technology and parallel processing.
Although the latter offers astonishing performance. Way above that of even the fastest 040 or even 060. It does have two major drawbacks, namely huge expense and very limited compatibility.
We'll look at the risk options later, and concentrate for the time being on the only approach to 040 acceleration which guarantees compatibility with almost all your existing software, while still delivering rendering Although we tested the fastest Warp configuration, there's a number of alternatives including a 28MHz. 33MHz and 40 Mhz board. If you're worried about upgrading. USMacroSystems claims it's possible to upgrade from both the 28MHz and 33MHz to the 40MHz very easily.
It's also claimed that the standard board will be compatible with 060's when available.
Like the 40MHz version, the 33MHz system comes complete. However, the 28MHz uses your original CPU and clocks it up slightly. It's the DMA that makes the real difference - and should provide a very noticeable npfovement in the speed of applications and even rendering.
Speeds - in some cases three times that of a standard 25MHz 040 A4000.
You may well wonder quite how such an increase in performance can be squeezed from an 040 without melting the CPU in its socket.
An obvious option is to increase the Mhz of the chip - which in the flistest Warp Engine means swapping your 25MHz chip for an 40MHz.
MONSTER Although this would make a difference on its own. It hardly accounts for a near threefold increase in rendering times. However if you combine such a chip with DMA - direct memory access - actually on the CPU's daughter board, you have the makings of a monster.
Due to the basic design of the A4000 memory access, the motherboard of the machine doesn’t even come close to filling the potential of the on-board RAM.
Thanks to the Warp, the RAM being linked directly to the 68040 bus, access leaps by more than a factor of four.
Not surprisingly this means the Warp Engine provides jaw dropping performance.
And of course there's the added bonus of a fast SCSI II controller also built directly onto the board. Add all of the above together and you have the fastest all round, none Rise-based acceleration and data transfer system on the Amiga. As anyone who's spent time installing additional hardware ; will know, actually fitting and configuring* hardware can often make you wish you'd, saved your money and stuck with what ycx.
Had.
I must admit, after reading through the installation procedure I had an impending feeling of disaster. In most cases, installing means removing the case and perhaps setting a few jumpers - not this time.
In the case of the Warp there's few. T any. Jumpers to be set. However there was the minor inconvenience of dismantling the entire machine.
After getting half-way through, the only thing left in the case was the motherboard Quite literally everything else was out 0 the desk.
DISMANTLING The plastic front cover was off. Followed , by the floppy bay, then the hard drive anc : finally the original 040 daughter board. The only thing that you don't need to touch are the Zorro slots - thanks to the fact that the entire Warp assembly comes on a direct replacement for the aforementioned daugh-, ter board.
The fact that you can leave your Zorro slots to their own devices - no punl intended - is another bonus of the Warp Engine. Thanks to the daughter board j replacement you obviously don't sacrifice i a Zorro for the extra speed - and of I course the on-board SCSI II controller saves even more valuable Zorros. Not to f j mention cash.
After contracting the usual case of installation rash from the razor sharp pressed • steel interior of the machine, it was time to pop in the new daughter board, throw ad the bits back together and boot th© j machine - installation disk at the ready.
Surprise, surprise, it booted first time. I checked the menu bar and all the memory had configured perfectly - things were going a little too well. What the hell, lets try Amiga Computing ¦I GRAPHICS hH Uerdict If you've got the cash get the card.
Although there are a number of acceleration systems for the A4000 and A3000 this is far and away the best yet.
The only real challenger is GVP's G-Force 040 which costs roughly the same price but has the disadvantage that it requires GVP'S own sims, In addition the planned SCSI II add-on still isn't shipping.
If the boasts of up-chip-ability are true it's unlikely you'll ever need to upgrade. All in all. An excel* lent product that's both reliable on all applications and better still, expandable. Very highly recommended.

However, it's not essential, and in fact we tested the board
with 70ns RAM by adding wait states, and as you can see the
results were still pretty impressive.
Thanks to some inspired design work it's even possible to mix and match sims of varying sizes, ranging between 4Mb. 8Mb, 16Mb and 32Mb, giving a theoretical maximum of 128Mb within the four sim slots provided.

problems.
Although the latter will work perfectly with ictfi 80ns and 70ns 72 pin sims, it’s only at its :-rfl with 60ns RAM. Unfortunately it’s almost :*rtain the RAM shipped with your machine was f'-sr 80ns or 70ns.
As a result, investors in the 4QMHz board need to shell-out for faster RAM if they software is just one of the many testaments to the inherent quality of the product. Over recent years I’ve had the pleasure and sometimes pain of using and reviewing quite a number of accelerators, the vast majority of which all demand at least some sort of software intervention to operate properly - but not this time, plug it in and you're off.
REFLECTION Although I've made a point of the physical problems associated with installation, it must be stressed that this is a reflection on the cramped and curious design of the A4000 rather than the Warp Engine.
As far as the Warp was concerned, you only need do two things; plug it in the slot, and turn on the machine - installation complete. The tricky bit was the former... Obviously rendering is the primary target for Warp Engine but general application speed also rockets. During testing we ran the following as a taster: RED Essentia BLACK = Recommended A4000 A3000 lor 40MH2 version It's worth stressing that all applications which regularly access files on disk - lmagine2 3 being prime examples - would show even bigger improvements when employing the Warp’s SCSI II controller.

M v UPDATES 'I- he lighter side UGH®" J!!'* rtNfflilfl BKNTIMi «*oe'«nced: Atttough formally only available to our ex- :: :iial cousins in the States, Lee Sfri-ahan’s series of Lightwave and mod- 0m tutorials are now out in PAL.
Ii anyone who's waded through a fairly ¦trrcal manual will know, ten minutes with r eipert often equates to exactly the same i - minus a couple of days of head arching and frustration. Thanks to Mr ahan, this old adage is now proven ttfond all doubt.
As luck would have it, our omnipresent msenter is not only blessed with a wealth st *-.owledge and a natural air of confi-
b. but also a dry wit which goes a long
• owards negating the trip to the dentists
- g all too often associated with tutorial Ithough undoubtedly
one of the fnendliest modelling and animation systems on the
market, the pure r and variety of features inevitably
Lightwave, and it's accompanying er, a tough nut to crack for
even 3D enthusiasts, nat's really needed is a little hands-on
from a real expert. Thankfully, that's what's on offer courtesy
of Desktop flife During Lightwave Essentials, our hero
- ts off gently with a guided tour of Layout.
Aa existing users will already know. Layout PfD-lBHtUfB5 is by far the simplest element in the Lightwave repertoire.
With this in mind I sat back, fully expect* ing to learn very little, confident in the knowledge acquired during six months of hard slog with manual and software.
At which point Mr Stranahan put me firmly in my place.
Obviously most people will be pretty au fait with the basics, but when it comes to time saving, tricks of the trade and basic working methods, a few choice comments soon translate into hours saved in design and rendering times.
As the name suggests this, the first in the senes. Is fairly basic stuff and doesn't touch on some key stumbling blocks such as surfaces and the application of texture maps.
However, what is provided during the two hour introduction to the six -part collection does lay the ground rules and may well provide enough information on its own to cater for those who aren't likely to take their Lightwave creations any further than the ubiquitous flying logo.
A gentle, but never the less essential introduction to the art of Lightwave animation. Picture quality could be a little better though - no doubt due to the NTSC to PAL conversion.
Nevertheless, I'd recommend every Lightwave user to watch it. The time saving tips alone will soon cover the initial outlay - highly recommended.
Supplier: Desktop Images Tel: 0101 818 841 8980 Price: $ 49.95 Us the lightwaue inuasion gathers pace. Amiga [(imputing I oaks at uideo tuition and some amaaing seamless features For those who caught our September issue and subsequently rushed out to invest in a copy of Dynamic Motion Module, only to discover it didn't work with the new standalone Lightwave - don't despair.
Like many third-party developers, Positron were caught unawares by the arrival of Lightwave 3.5. However, the incompatibility problems have now been eradicated and updates should already be shipping.
Contact Positron Publishing on: 0101 402 4936280 DIM Update With the sudden profusion of CD-Rom and assorted texture collections, there hardly seems any room left for yet another collection of textures.
However, in a seemingly flooded market the Pro* Textures combo collection does have one huge advantage over the opposition. Unlike almost every other product on the market, Pro-Textures offers the ability to tile seamlessly.
Not the kind of news to send most people gaily romping through the fields naked in a state of uncontrolled euphoria, unless of course you're a 3D fan of course.
The big problem with most textures is that when rapped around any 3D model, a very noticeable seam runs down the object. Not the case with this collection.
After what must have been a torturous process, each edge matches precisely with it's opposite number. As a result, waves glide off into infinity, bricks wrap effortlessly around walls and so on. In total, you receive 24 textures over eight disks, each provided as a Ham. GIF and 24-bit Jpeg. Being an American import, the resolution is 736 x 480 which obviously will require some image processing for use as full screen backdrops.
However, this isn't really what the collection is intended for.
Purely thanks to the seamless texture mapping, I'd say the Pro-Textures series is a must for any self respecting 3D enthusiast. And of course, although ideal for Lightwave, the collection is equally at home with Imagine, Real 3D or whatever package you prefer.

This upgrade does not turn your Amiga «a»an AGA compatible.
Tlwt is unless, of course, you have a 24-bit graphics card in your Amiga. With a nrfpUy card, such as the Picasso II, you can select a 256 colour Workbench with no flrabiems at all - who needs the AGA chipset?
Th* palette editor in Prefs really does show the colour wheel which was previously only accessible with an AGA Amiga. ECS owners will not be able to see this,
- nrart a bar is shown with the words ‘colour wheel’. You must
click on this bar to orag up another screen. Clumsy, but
effective.
Ar mile in the Prefs drawer. Iprefs on non-AGA Amigas will not allow ¦odePromotion. This feature effectively de-interlaces the display to prevent flicker, bat requires the AGA chipset.

Volume of the sound was little more than ¦ wrtsper.
- is upgrade has to be the most expense yet! Release 2.0

this est :aby will set you back a cool £100.
Even worse, there are two versions of the xiprade kit, depending on which Amiga you For the A500 1500 2000 owners, the rt version is 40.63 on one chip, while

again. Uke I said, no one ever reads unless something goes
wrong.
Workbench disks are the only items look like they have come from :: odore, and are the same standard s&j? Tor both upgrade versions.
Little colour The initial "cheap and nasty" feel of the manual soon subsides as you realise that the book will stay flat on the desktop or can be folded over because of the binder.
This is certainly a well written manual, and more surprisingly it was written by Commodore. VillageTronic make no apologies for stating that it was self-printed by them, although you do get the impression that they perhaps used Pagestream to do it.
There is practically no need to buy a third- party Workbench book, this has it all.
A very welcome addition is an appendix devoted entirely to AmigaGuide. Which for some people has caused frustration under Workbench 3.0 by being called MultiView.
AmigaDOS 3.1 is a joy to read! This is a mega-upgrade to the original. Not quite the incentive to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty, but at least all the information is there in front of you if and when you take the plunge.
The book even begins by explaining how The Workbench 3.1 manual is basically the same as its predecessor, both having been written by the same team on a variety of Amigas.
There is additional information in chapter one regarding the selection of monitors, languages and keyboards, and chapter two expands on using pointers. This seems strange, as this is an upgrade and many users will already know these operations.
The pictorial screen representations (i.e. screenshots) within the manual are not as clear as in the original manuals, but this is compensated for in the additional information and clear explanation of Workbench and its functions.
MANUAL to use the manual, and takes three pages to fully explain this. Easy or what?
There are more directions and cross references to sections than an insurance document - the difference is you can read and understand this. A complete novice can be up and running in no time, it really is that simple and well laid out.
Now, down to the bones of the upgrade.
The main ingredient of the package is the chip or chips, depending upon which Amiga you have, This has a small white stick-on label with the words ‘Kickstart 3.1* typed on it. Again rather cheap looking, but once inserted into the Amiga’s ROM socket, no one will ever notice.
Fitting is very simple for anyone with normal eyesight and a reasonable level of manual dexterity, All you have to do, observing the usual anti-static precautions, is idemfy and remove the old ROM and insert the new one. This is done, preferably, with the An»ga turned off!
If you have never removed a ctxp. The s the most traumatic part of the operation • you have changed a chip, all you have to do Operation hirhstart Another operating system, another upgrade, but ran this one outdo its predecessors? Heuin Hitching finds out r Amiga Computing 45 HARDWARE w is try to stay awake.
Remember, you will probably have to remove most of the innards of the Amiga to do this, especially on the A2000! Anyway, here's one we did earlier... Ajnght, the chip is snugly in its new home and you can power up the machine. The
- mmediate difference is that the normal startup that Kickstart
2 gives, in the form of a light grey screen, has gone.
The machine now looks to have crashed.
All you get is a quick grey flash, the screen goes black, and your heart misses a beat.
Only the hard disk activity light gives a clue that the Amiga is booting up as normal.
When the Workbench screen appears, it now has a white title bar. Identical to the A4000. The speed at which Workbench loads is a little faster than with Kickstart 2, which indicates that there are some welcome changes in the ROM to boost performance.
The next exercise is to install the six Workbench 3.1 disks to the boot partition of your hard disk.This is simplicity in itself, being totally idiot proof, which is just as well as there are no instructions.
Just insert the Install 3.1 disk into the disk drive, double-click the Install icon, select your language and away it goes.
OVERWRITE Commodore have used their standard installer software to overwrite your old version 2.x files, and the whole installation is a doddle. The software is all version 40.xx and takes up less disk space than Workbench3.0 did. After the disk swaps have been completed. All that remains is to reboot the Amiga and sit back.
Many disk operations are faster, and so are the screen updates. The maths libraries have been reworked to provide extra speed with some applications, although there are PD versions around which are both smaller and much faster.
Generally speaking, the new software is the Gti of Workbench releases. And yet.
Strangely it seems, there are some die-hards out there who insist on staying with Kickstart and Workbench 1.3. Come on people, wise up, no one is writing for the old system these days. Move with the times.
Workbench 2.x users will find that they now have the ability to display graphics and text on workbench, thanks to the Datatypes of Workbench 3.
Even non Amiga filetypes such as the PC's PCX and BMP graphics formats can be In time, the price may fall, as it did with Workbench 2, but at the moment, the quality of the product set against the usability does not equal that much dosh.
An interesting note is that the upgrade will not be available for A600 or A1200 owners, and there are no plans to offer any upgrade in the future.
This is definitely an upgrade for those with "big box" Amigas who must have the latest operating system. After a while the newness wears off and you realise that it's just another operating system.
Programmers (official Commodore developers) already have Kickstart v40.68 which they can soft-kick into memory. The point is. At the end of the day, if end users will not shell out £25 for Kickstart 2.04, who will part with £100 for Kickstart 3.1?
Displayed in a window. There is support for some CD operations too such as CDXL (CD animation files).
Yes. The software carries CD-ROM support. This is not as good as the PD AmiCDROM system, but at least it works this time!
The format command now gives additional options too. Directory cacheing allows faster window updates with the FastFileSystem.
So far everything sounds too good to be true. I must confess that I have some reservations about the reasoning behind this release.
Kickstart 3.1 was announced as being in the A4000T by Commodore. The version number of that chip was 40.70. Now it is common knowledge that the A4000T has never seen the light of day in the UK. So therefore no one knows if the chip does support Auto-Booting from a SCSI CD-ROM (as promised by Commodore).
A little detective work reveals that VillageTronic were going to use version
40. 70 ROMs, but here is the crunch - there were timing problems
with the SCSI bus and it simply would not work with the 040
accelerators out there.
So. A compromise was reached - use a version that does work. Simple, just go back to an earlier working version tested by developers.
Consequently there is no direct support for CD-ROM and no real difference in performance on the A4000 (other than a speed increase on accelerated ECS Amigas).
So what is the point of the costly upgrade' Well, for the ECS Amigas (A500+ etc.) then are no real additional benefits. Okay, the m bar and pull-down menus on Workbench an now black on white. This looks more ple& ing than the previous attempt. But these an just the "bells and whistles."
Workbench 3.1 is definitely for hard dia systems only. Six disks are a lot to swap oi a floppy-based system. Some software wrr ten with Kickstart 3 in mind will work, but!
The AGA chips are required, you've had r Game over player one.
The situation is even worse for A400C owners. The changes are so subtle that the definitely is a non starter. The software do® not drastically outperform the previous Workbench 3.0. Not for 100 folding tokens anyway. £$ The bottom line Product: Kickstart 3.1 Supplier: Blittersoft Price: £100 Phone: 0908 220196 Ease of use .7 .7 6 .7 Implementation Value for money- Overall_ Amiga Computing tj £ % LOWEST PRICES V jZ ' BESTSERV.CE RAPID DELIVERY BEST SERVICE SALES FREE CALL 0500 737 800 OTHER ENQUIRIES 081 686 9973 081 781 1551 DISKS DISKS DISKS +LO«fJ“ 100% CERTIFIED ERROR FREE BOXES Grade A

Our word processors go beyond simply producing normal letters
and documents, at which they naturally excel, and progress into
a world where “how the w hole document looks' is just as
important as ‘what it says*. Admittedly, this can be achieved
with Desk Top Publishers • but they're not so easily used as
.word processors, especially when a good looking letter needs
creating quickly - they’re lar too cumbersome.
Final Copy offers the perfect balance between the two requirements... Ease and speed of use. With total control over the perfect printed presentation.
Complete control over how documents look, now you have it at your finger tips on your Amiga! Features include: FastDraw" (on-screen drawing tools for use with the generation of borders, boxes and lines or arrows at any angle). Multiple Newspaper Style snaking columns, PerfectPrint™ (the unique ability to use Post Script’*1 outline fonts on absolutely any printer in either portrait or landscape) and Text Auto Flows around graphic objects and imported pictures (placed anywhere, scaled or cropped) with the highest prim quality. Text can also be printed over graphics!
It's features like these that explain why there are some professional magazine's, with 200* pages, that are produced entirely with Final Copy u! Publishers, and many others, have quickly discovered th.it,, No other Amiga Word Processor in the same category, and at such a competitive price, has all the capabilities Final Copy it users have always taken for granted!

Ur Laurels... III LETTERS have recently purchased an A1200 Amiga computer and have to confess to being completely lost as to where to go next. I have an 80 megabyte hard-drive and got some free games with the package.
I hope to be able to use my Amiga for a range of practical purposes. Firstly. I want to do some business projects - could you suggest a good database package? Also is there a personal finance package that would be suitable for my machine?
Secondly, is there a good but cheap package I can get to develop smart presentations for my business projects?
I already have a word-processor that came with the computer but it does not compare too well with the ones I have used in my old job. Please could you tell me which is the best word-processor on the Amiga.
Steven Ross, Berkshire OK. We’ll go through the standalone options first. As far as a database is concerned it might well be worth scanning the PD section to see if you can pick Something up for a couple of pounds.
If PD or Shareware doesn't really interest you could go commercial with either Superbase Personal or its big brother Superbase Pro4.
An alternative would be Prodata, perhaps in concert with its word processing partner Protext. As luck would have it. Protext also happens to be an excellent In communication I am trying to start a Blitz User Group which will enable Blitz Users to communicate via a free disk magazine. The system works like this: Well It's great to see that users are continuing to support machines even though the remains of Commodore appear indifferent to plight of their product and its users.
If there’s anyone else who would like a shout for a similar non-profit making service, whether it be a newsletter or user group, feel free to drop us a line and we'll get you in print.
Blunder blita On opening a recent issue of Amiga Computing I discovered with great surprise and joy a brand new Blitz 2 column. I followed the instruction and realised there was an error in the listings. The listing should read Users send one blank floppy plus a self addressed and stamped envelope. I then collate all the elements of the magazine and send it return post to members. As I said it's all completely free except for the price of the stamp.

Word processor. However, it must be stressed that although Protext is ideal for business it isn't the first choice when it comes to pretty presentation. The question is would you prefer glamorous printouts or a symbiotic database and word processing system.
As for a personal finance manager. I'd definitely recommend Maxiplan4. Although it's not the prettiest software in the world it's in my opinion by far the best.
As for presentation, especially in a business environment. I'd seriously consider Scala HVT. Although the acronym stands for home video titler it's still ideal for simple presentation work. It's also easy to use, and better still relatively cheap.
If you're still in the market for an opinion on the best word processor I’m a devoted Wordworth3. Although Final Writer has just as many devoted followers.
Both offer a mixture of excellent word processing features mixed with a good helping of DTP add-ons which makes for very impressive hard copy.
The final alternative is to invest in a combination of all of the above - with the exception of Scala HVT.
And as luck would have it, good old Europress Software have the very thing in the form of Home Office.
Although the Individual components don't match-up to the individuals head-to-head, the overall package does offer a nicely integrated system at a bargain price.
As follows: It’s the business VBSurtup CloltEd loCLI tv.1*0 Wbenchcofront_ Ubtoscrccn 0 Use Screen 0 HiniM 0, 120, 70, 200, *0, $ 1000Q|S8, 'Hy HlndowB,1,2 teptit ev=0 evaVaitEvent Until ev=f200 CloscWindov 0 End.
Notice the changes in lines 5 and 6. Line I 5 was WorkbenchenchToFront_. And line 6 was WorkbenchToScreen.
Please don't take this as a criticism as 11 was otherwise very impressed with your 1 excellent approach to the subject, but this could cause some confusion. I am looking I forward to the coming instalments of the tutorial.

For those who prefer the e-mail approach here s how to contact Amiga Computing on-line:
• CompuServe: 70007.4734
• CIX: amigacomputing
• Internet: amigacomputing@cix.com-1 pulink.co.uk Can you tell me
when the CD drive for the A4000 will be released and
approximately how much it will be?
Also, could you tell me whatever happened to the DSP sound chip with the rumoured 32 channels, built in sampler, etc.? This seems to have been nored since the CD32 was released.
Gideon Cresswell, Maidstone if you're waiting for an official Commodore A4000 CD-ROM, I wouldn't hold your breath. As rt stands, Commodore will be hard pressed to get their existing hardware back on-line for Christmas.
As a result, its highly unlikely they'll embark on an official release this year. Although you've not mentioned it, I assume you particularly want a Commodore drive primarily for the Planar chip and FMV available on the CD32.
If that's the case, I'm afraid you'll have to wait and see what happens to Commodore. If, however, you simply want an A4000 compatible CD- ROM it’s worth getting in contact with the First Computer Centre. They're already selling a standard IDE CD-ROM with the appropriate installation software and connections.
Obviously this won’t offer Planar or FMV but it will read any ISO 9660 CD - the industry standard on ail formats.
As for the DSP chip, this, like many Amiga rumours, has been consigned to the vapour- ware cupboard. I'm afraid it will be next year at the earliest before you'll see a built-in DSP on any machine in the Amiga range - if at all.

atti- fede I refer to the 24Bit Club in Scotland.
~nese guys are the best. They have helped me immeasurably with IcaVision, Imagine and some very serious problems with LightRave srd now Lightwave). Please let your readers know about these P** 14 you are serious about 24Bit processing, get serious with the HBA Club A very satisfied 24Bit Club member who is wondenng ¦'-» you have never reviewed the club in your magazine.
Steve Calkin. Canvey Island Alias the Scottish 24Bit Club - Ed vtii. R m very happy for you. As for a review of the club it’s
* aflya case of what they offer that warrants the coverage.
As I’ve already mentioned, any club that feels they offer some- ~ ng special will certainly get a shout in the magazine. Just i in, it's that simple.
Image transplant t If I may introduce myself. I am Eneko. A Spanish student. I have recently finished my studies of fine arts last year. Since then I've been working on a study of both computer and traditional animation - believing the future lies in the former of the two. I'd appreciate some much needed advice.
As I regular reader of your magazine I know you have extensive knowledge Of 3D imagery, more traditional graphics programs and of course the all-important hardware.
My first idea was to develop an easy way to produce images via the computer. Of course, most artists are frightened of the technology and need to see immediate results to maintain any prolonged interest.
As I know a little more than most, this soon evolved into the idea of making a film video of animation, mixing both computer and traditional animation. My aim is to produce the whole thing over the next year using drawings, my Amiga 3000 and the Opal Vision system.
What I need to know is how to transplant the computer images to film. Any information on video or movie production which uses computer technology - particularly the Amiga since it is a computer easily affordable for the artist - would be welcome.
What kind of technology will come in the future? I mean, could I make and render my scenes in virtual reality in the near future? I don't need concrete answers, just your personal opinion.
I have many questions to ask, but I don't want to waste your time. So if you can help me. Or know someone who can. I would be grateful for any contacts you can offer.
Eneko Cajigas Mazorriaga, Vizcaya. Spain As far as creating graphics quickly is concerned, there are literally hundreds of alternatives on the Amiga. The real question is what sort of images you need?
If it's simply a case of titling or presentation graphics, packages like Scala and MediaPoint are the obvious choices.
Although they don't provide a lot of painting tools, they do offer a means of displaying existing artwork as backdrops and clips as part of a larger overall multimedia presentation.
For example, both can combine stills and animation with Midi, laser disks. CD- ROMs, Canon ion cameras, sound modules and samples.
They also have the added bonus of being interactive with the user audience - something which many artists find particularly appealing.
I realise much of the above may have raised even more questions, but if you simply want quick results, pretty much any paint package will do the job.
As for your existing system, it appears you're fairly well equipped. However, if you’re planning to expand via the mythical add-ons from OpalVision, I wouldn't hold your breath.
The OpalVision farce has been an ongoing saga for over two years and there's still no sign of the Roaster chip and the other videographic goodies. Vapourware at its best.
As for your query about transferring Amiga art onto video, there's a number options. In the past the only accurate method was to invest in a BetaCam SP edit recorder.
However, recently we've seen the arrival of desktop digital video via the PAR card from digital processing systems.
Not only is the quality superior, but it's also a much cheaper alternative - even when fully configured with a realtime frame grabber and the essential IDE hard drive s.
However, before investing in the PAR it’s well worth catching next month’s review of the Vlab motion system. Like the PAR, this new card provides real-time video capture and playback in both Composite and S-VHS.
But perhaps the best news is that the system will retail considerably cheaper than the PAR and doesn't necessarily require investment in an extra hard drive.
It remains to be seen if Vlab Motion can match the usability and reliability of the opposition, but if it manages to come even close it may well prove an attractive option for those wanting a single frame and real-time recording facility at reasonable post.
As for you plans to model in virtual reality, I'd say it's very early days. Although VR is beginning to make its mark as a training and research tool in medicine and industry, the system overheads on the Amiga are simply too high to make it practical.
As for the query about additional advice, I suggest you read on and take the advice of an obviously very satisfied member of the 24Bit Club.

July, I did receive an envelope with just two more disks.
However, try as I might, there is no way I can de-crunch these two disk onto four working disks, because each time I follow the instructions I am told that the disks which will receive the de-crunched information are write protected, when in fact they are most definitely write enabled.
As a result I have not been able to get into and use this word processing package. It would appear that looking at the individual files from Workbench the programme does not recognise the drive DFO, although this is the defined drive in the loading instructions.
The replacement disks have not in any way been tampered with, nor has the write protect been altered while trying to de-crunch the program.
I would welcome your help in this small matter, as this KindWords 3 program is just what I want for my A600 and with your help I look forward to being able to load and use this programme.
G. Earls. E. Yorkshire The type of file requesters that the v
Spectrum emulator uses require the ASL or ARP libraries in
order to function. These libraries were written to improve
the original, gaudy file requesters. If you own an A600 or
above machine and you used the installing program, there
should be no problems.
If you have an A500, ASL will not work and ARP was not included on the disk. You could look through the Libs drawers on AmigaDOS disks in your collection for a copy of ARP.Iibrary, but if this proves fruitless send a letter asking for ARP and I will send you a copy.

In order for our disks to de-archive successfully we are forced to use the A600 version of the Format command as it is the only one that works on all Amigas.
There is a problem though.

Boot your Amiga with the CoverDisk containing F1GP-Ed and load the program up. When that has happened take out the CoverDisk and insert your F1GP disk two in the drive. Now click on Read Data From Executable and use the file requester to load up the file called ffgp.

On checking my RAM disk I find that I have three files within it on startup. They are Clipboards. Env and T. Please can you help me further? If I can sort out what appears to be a memory problem on startup and the game runs without my memory expansion in place. I would like to disable this without physically removing the board each time I play the game. Many thanks.
A. Bemascome, W. Sussex rThis is a complicated one. As I have
installed Heimdall 2 sev- Vjr eral times on an A1200 and have
had no problems, I would imagine this is a fault of your
machine or possibly a virus. It may be a good idea to check
your machine with a reputable virus killer such as John
Veldthuis’ Virus Checker.
AGA machines do suffer from memory fragmentation but not to the degree your machine is reporting, and so (ar that luon’t go a On getting hold of my first harr 3 drive I attempted to install Protex v 4.3 from your CoverDisk.
In no circumstances was it gome to work so I contacted Amor who told m* that the CoverDisk was for demo purposes only and would not work on the hard dnve They suggested that I buy the full wooing copy which I did, On executing hdin- STALL, all the files are successfully copied over to the partition WORK, but that is as far as it goes.
The program will not run by clicking on its icon, even if I boot from hard drive anc insert the onginal floppy in DFO. I can orv get the program to run if I boot directly fror floppy.
I wrote to Arnor again and they couifi only suggest that there was something wrong with my startup files and that should remove them one at a time until solved the problem.
This I have iried and still the program crashes every time I click on its icon. The configuration setup is oorrect so that isn't the problem. Any suggestions?
V. Storey. Norton Cwow! You have been put through the wringer.
The CoverDisk version of Protext will install to hard drive
but it was probably a wise decision to upgrade to the fully
working version.
Why it's not working is another matter and one that seems quite confusing.!
Would imagine it is probably an error in the HDINSTALL, although if such an error existed Amor would have probably known about it.
You could try copying the program to your hard drive manually by using a directory manager program such as SID 2 or Directory Opus.
You could then add an assign into your startup-sequence by doing the following. From the CLI type: You could then save the new startup- sequence by pressing Esc, x and then Return.
If this doesn't work write in again, but this time explain the crash in more detail and any requesters that may appear.
Just before the Loadwb command add the following commands: ProteHt no tGHt assign PIOTXT: U0*K:Protcat assign : HOIK: As an example, suppose Protext was in a drawer called Protext in the WORK partition and the Protext disk was called PROTXT1 you would type: Amiga Computing S ACTIVE SOFTWARE 2ept AC5, P.O.

high quality and take only a little editing or texture

As an educational aid on how to put good models together without over complicating things, the package would sell itself, but as there are so many top-quality creations of such a wide variety (everything from WW1 biplanes to kitchen utensils) you'd be mad not to give this one a whirl.
If you don’t already have a CD-ROM dnve and you are a 3D afficionado or professional, discs such as this one make the drive itself the next thing on the shopping list.

Ff you don’t have a copy of Interchange Plus or Pixel Pro, there’s not much here to interest you apart from a directory of textures in raw RGB format.
This is a pity, as some of the models from other program formats are stunning and would grace any scene.
There are those, such as the ubiquitous NCC-1701, which we've all seen a million times before, but others are more original, such as the rather gruesome 3D scene set up to exactly match the last few seconds of John F Kennedy's life.
The latter is a new departure for the Americans, who seem at one stroke to have combined a hobby with a national tragedy, and plumbed the depths of bad taste into the bargain. What next?

Forking on the Workbench saves a bit of c RAM. And is handy for creating art such at Workbench backdrops that will normally rare the Workbench palette.

- 5S5-i| ImageFX running on a 236-colour Workbench screen ImageFX
2.0 features a high degree of retar- getability. You can
display the interface window on just about any graphics card
that installs itself legally in the Amiga’s screen- modes list.
The preview screen (the working screen before you render your final images) can be displayed on Amiga, DCTV, Firecracker 24.
Ham-E, IV24, OpalVision, or Retina cards, or on the Workbench on unsupported cards that do feature Workbench emulation.
Final images can be directly rendered to Amiga-mode screens or DCTV, EGS, Firecracker, Grafexa, Ham-E. IV24, OpalVision. Picasso. Retina, or SAGE screens.
A Foreign render module lets you render images for graphics boards you don’t have installed on your Amiga - you could use this to create an AGA graphic on an ECS Amiga, for instance. No matter what graphics subsystem you use. ImageFX 2.0 will let you use it to the fullest.
ImageFX 2.0 features a series of IMP (ImageFX Multi Processor) which is a new batch processor module that lets you run a process or effect on a series of images automatically. Without having to mess with Arexx scripting.
IMP can work with single images, a series of images, or Op5 ANIM animation files. IMP lets you do processes such as doing a video- colour-limit operation on all the images in a image . S' VS* WWMQWW

Negative, etc.; plus a few bonuses such as halftone (nine types, including special brush and alpha channel options) and antique.
Filter operations include colour limiting, antialiasing. Video filtering, and median filtering.
The Convolve option allows you to do operations such as sharpening, edge-detection, motion-blurs. Or relief maps of the current image - it's even possible to create your own.
You can composite pictures, using both the swap buffer and an alpha channel. Image transformations now include not only flip, mirror. Roll, and shear, but also fantastic two- dimensional and three-dimensional perspective rotations that are much faster than those found in Amiga paint programs.
Distort operations include alpha-channel and wave distortion, swirling, pinch punch, polar blur and mosaic, and spherize The Dream distortion is a particularly nice effect for use in animations. It creates a wavy, swirling effect, similar to what you often see on low-budget television shows when a character moves in or out of a dream sequence.
All of these effects are completely adjustable in intensity.
The real fun. Though, comes under the Special Effects menu. There are 12 menu buttons here, but you'll actually find hundreds of special effects available to you.
The classic ImageFX Remove Feature (remove everything in a selected region by pulling the edges together) and Oil Transfer (makes the image look like an oil painting), as well as Disperse and Roughen, are found here.
Apply Texture lets you map a texture behind your graphic to make it appear as if it's actually been painted on another surface.
Dozens of textures are included, such as bond paper, granite, fibers, sidewalk, tile, stucco. Tree bark, leather, and woodgrain. Or you can create your own in a paint program.
Straw makes it appear as if your painting was drawn on coloured straw - it’s a weird effect, but interesting. Crystallize is very There's a lot more to ImageFX 2.0 than I had room to cover here. I haven't even touched on Cinemorph.
Which allows you to create high-quality single-image or animation morphs.
Or on the full Arexx interlace, with dozens ol pre- wntten macros, which adds even more image - and batch-processing capabilities. Or on CMYK support, region loading and saving, or auto-cropping.
ImageFX has the best memory-handling of any Amiga image-processing program - not only does it impressive - depending on the grid size, perturbation and sparkle amounts you choose. It can make your image look as if it's being viewed through a jewel, or as if it's actually made out of coloured crystals.
Next is a series of lighting effects, and these can result in some of the most dramatic effects of any image-processing program.
These effects not only place impressive stars and lens flares on your image, but they also affect the brightness of pixels around them.
So if you place a bright star effect next to an aircraft image, the fuselage around the exploding flare will be realistically brightened as if an actual flare had exploded next to it.
This is particularly impressive when using the lightning effect - you can adjust the area around the lightning bolt so that it "lights up’ as well.
Lightning is fully adjustable and variable.
By varying the bolt slightly over the frames of an animation you can create some very realistic lightning effects.
TILING Next, there's Hockney tiling, a completely controllable tiling effect that’s useful for creating explosive wipes. Finally, there's PaintFX.
If you've ever seen Fractal Painter on Windows or the Macintosh, you've probably been impressed by the program's ability to reproduce realistic painting styles.
PaintFX lets you choose a brush stroke and have it applied to an already completed image, allowing you to automatically create Painter-like effects. You can choose simple stroke brushes, or complex IFF brushes for truly weird effects Speaking of painting, ImageFX 2.0 is no slouch in that department either. You won’t want to use it as your primary paint program
- working on the preview screen is a bit awkward. Although it’s
been made much less so than in previous releases.
You can lock the aspect ratio of the preview screen so that it matches the original picture, and work on HAMS or'high-colour preview screens.
Almost all operations have been speeded up, particularly the airbrush, which now operates in real-time and has an adjustable radius, nozzle size, and roughness.
There are now a wide variety of drawing modes. Some emulate naturai-media: watercolour, crayon, charcoal, chalk, felt tip, and fingerpaint.
Others affect colours already there: smudge, disperse, relief, add, shaqpen, blur, value, saturation, hue, colour, lighten, darken, and colourize, There are also a variety of styles, some of which allow you to combine your picture work well even in a system with fragmented memory, but it has built-in virtual-memory support for working with large files, even on systems without memory-man- agement units.
Online AmigaGuide help brings answers (and full Arexx programming documentation) at a press of the Help key. And available documentation for imageFX's operators and loaders means third parties will continue to extend the program’s capabilities - some modules, such as a PhotoCD loader, are already available.
With another in the swap buffer. Th include maximum, minimum, fade out and mandala, pantograph, trace through, and fj through.
When drawing, you can choose to haa the brush edges feathered out or in, or an* aliased. I wouldn't use ImageFX to crea images from scratch, but I certainly woj suggest it for changing mundane art into surreal and fantastic.
Placing text on your image has been mafi much easier. Multiple lines of text can now j created simultaneously, and you can 6vl load and save short text files directly into I text requester.
All of the draw modes can be applied text, so you can. For instance, use text to ru through to an underlying image. Simili effects can be created with brush images ImageFX now supports multiple brusha which can easily be swapped back and fort from a brush list. It also supports loading 3 different graphic formats, from the comma!
To the esoteric.
Actually, one of the supported formats the AmigaDOS 3.0 DataTypes library, so i you have DataTypes for additional formal installed on your system, they're supports as well.
There are only 27 savers, omitting formats, but realistically you're probably going to be using your Amiga to crea images in MacPaint or Koala formats.
You can also grab screens and bru from the system directly into ImageFX.
Program also supports MAGIC, a image-sharing standard that is adopted bJ others which will allow multiple applications to open and work on a single image buffer.
Finally. ImageFX can directly grab image* from scanners and frame grabbers. It suck ports Epson scanners, the PP&S Framegrabber and Framegrabber 256.
IV24 frame grabber, VLAB. And the Sha** JX-100.
Although its input features are strong, ai the latest beta I examined, printing was ImageFX's only weak point. It doesn't hav* the plethora of printing controls and poster creation abilities found in ASDG's A* Department Professional.
On the plus side, though, it does include full-featured drivers for outputting t : PostScript or the Primera dye-sublimatioflj colour printer.

Computing I A here is a great need for products like W this. If
you've ever been subjected to a viewing of someone else’s home
you will know this. Wobbly visual acrds of weddings, birthdays
and holidays.
Rambling tapes turn our biggest days ¦c ratalogues of boredom.
K east now, with the help of Hama A-Cut, . Can scrap the irrelevant dross and start 2_*!irg some structure into your videos.
“he A-Cut turns your Amiga into an editor
- jse with most video types including VHS- . -HS-S or HI-8. It is
suitable for all players Bar nave a Control-L interface,
meaning that li* -i" be used with most machines in practice.
Mat you get is a control unit, an infrared
• rcte controller and the all important A-Cut .-•*are. Despite
all the leads, setting it up is wrth the help of the good
quality instruc- rra supplied.
Though it doesn't exactly look like £200.
Tt control unit is sturdily designed with a few . asantly simple controls.The source player s r agged directly into the control unit where- s recorder is operated by remote control.. This means that the A-Cut must be adjust to match the infrared system code of the order. Thankfully this can be done auto-
- aoealfy via the program without too much of i cnsblem.
Once the A-Cut has been configured, the is presented with the interface. Large icons make operating the editor a simple ’•after, with prompts to guide you through
- ere complicated procedures.
The beginner is well catered for with an on- I ne help facility giving explanations on every xsfifcte command or function. This is the sort Great potential of .detail that gives the package an air of professionalism.
When it comes to selecting clips from the source tape, any number of scenes can be defined. To get professional results, accurate single frame editing is possible if the connected player features RC time code, The time code display on the A-Cut interface is the same as you would find in a professional editing suite, giving the user a point of reference right down to a specific frame.
Vital for any would-be editor, the jog shuttle is the most convenient method of finding specific frames accurately. Unfortunately, this was the one area in which the equipment was disappointing, The shuttle's inner ring is fine when it comes to the frame-by-frame viewing of film.
However, it only works at one speed so it fails to give the level of control that it should over slow-motion speeds. This is a serious complaint considering its importance in an editing unit.
Much better is A-Cut’s edit list which allows you to log each shot by a name with its respective time-code reading. This means that clips can be organised and found efficiently Clips can be assembled from different videos, although this will involve some fiddling since care must be taken to rewind each tape back to the beginning after each cassette Change, Once an edit list has been compiled it can be previewed, allowing the user to check all clips prior to recording. The film can be restructured at this stage since clips can be shifted or copied elsewhere in the edit list.
For the Amiga enthusiast, an Arexx interface has been provided so that A-Cut can communicate with other programs supporting the language. This means that a video film can be produced with a title program in a single operation while editing, Those with more technical experience may also find the optimisation facilities useful. Most people, however, need not worry about this as the default settings seem perfectly adequate L& svsiEm Essmiifus RED = Esse i BLACK = Recommended RAM Kickstart Prom the moment you open the instructions, this product shows unusual class. At this price you may think
that a good manual can be taken for granted, but anyone who's torn their hair over Hi-fi instructions will know otherwise.
The botturp line Product: Hama A-Cut Supplier: Hama PVAC Ltd.
Tel: 0256 708110 Price £199 Ease of use_9 Implementation_8 Value for money-7 Overall_8 The well-planned interface makes defining the required scenes simple. With some guidance from the help facility, beginners should be able to become fully-fledged editors within an hour or so.
It's a shame that such a well-designed package should be let down by an inadequate jog shuttle; this problem will have to be resolved if the A-Cut is to perform as well as it should. Otherwise the unit works very well, giving the potential for some surprisingly professional results. It could have been cheaper, but A-Cut is well worth considering for the serious amateur or a budget business project.
Buy one of these and you might start making videos that are actually worth watch- mg. Then you can start learning to hold the camera straight.

Vau'ue conouered menus and screens. how flJichael Ihilne shows you how to control gadgets in Blita r R (C3 M| Gadgets have been by far the most brilliant invention of any intuition system. Whether it is Workbench cr me Amiga or Windows for the PC, you
• on t see a single program for sale without :ne gadgets.
(£4.99 .
• 10 VM? | IAGEB But why are they so popular? Well gadgets are
by far the most interactive tool to found in workbench. With
them you can user input, display information or have our own
logos and designs on screen, and *' trns comes with such
relative ease that amost puts you to sleep.
So how do we do it? The first thing that should know about gadgets in Blitz is rat they are handled in groups. A group is
- ade up of a window full of gadgets - i.e. ii gadgets relating
to the gathering display- r»g of information for one purpose An
example of such a group would be for : Mtabase file where one
group of gadgets s jsed to take name and address informa- Kn
from the user, The easiest way to group gadgets is to ? Member
that they can only be used in
• -idows and only one group of gadgets ;sn be assigned per
window, After you have decided which gadgets you need and for
what purpose, you can then continue with the declaring of them,
Yes, that's right.
Gadgets are just like menus in the sense that they need to be declared before they can be used.
Gadgets and Gadtoals: lire theg compatible?
In a word, yes. If you are having problems with getting those old gadgets to work with the new ones then don't despair as help is at hand.
In the last issue I mentioned about subscribership to the Blitz User Magazine with continual updates to the Blitz language. Well, if you are a subscriber then you should have received issue number six.
On the new libs included on the disks are some extensive updates to the gadgets' and gadgtools' libraries, making them almost completely compatible.
Therefore, if you are experiencing difficulties with gadgets and gadtools and you are not a subscriber, write in straight away to; Blitz User Magazine Subscription, Guildhall Leisure Services, Unit 15. Guildhall Industrial Estate, Kirksandall, Doncaster DN3 1QR This is how we do it. A typical “Textgadget" is as below: Textgadget 0,10,10,0,1,'Hello there!* If you check your reference manual.
Chapter 26-1. You can see that the first number is the group id number, or as Blitz calls them “GadgetLists".
After that follows the X.Y coordinates which are both relative to the top-left corner of the window in which they will be used.
Then follows the flag parameter which is used for extra functions, which can be seen on the table on the same page.
I have currently set this to zero which makes the gadget a plain text gadget, but if I had made it equal to one then it could be toggled on and off by the user.
After that is the gadget's own id number so that we can identify the gadget itself and the text which appears inside the gadget.
After you have declared all your gadgets you are ready to start using them, which couldn’t be simpler as all you have to do is to extend the window command by one more parameter - this is the gadget list id number which for the gadget above would be zero.
Here's an example to demonstrate. First of all we need all the usual things for Workbench compatability: HbStartup HbenchtoFront_ HbToStrien 0 list Screen 0 ev.1*0 Now let's define our gadget: Text6adget 0,20,18,0,1,'Click on ae lo Suit' and open our window as the active window with our gadget attached: VindOM 0,120,70,200,40,11000,'Hy Mindou",1,2,0 We can use the Events system, as used in the last tutorial, to wait for the user to press our gadget. This can be done by waiting for the value $ 20: Repeat evsO »Y*lfi1tSmt Until cv:$ 20 and 6idgetHiM As you can see we can also check to see which
gadget was hit by using 'GadgetHit' Now we just close down: CloscUincow 0 Free Gadgetlist 0 EftdCoipHt and run the program and you'll see how easy it is to produce an interactive Amiga Computing HEIP is at hand Ofldg*!*.' Simpler than buttering toast A command after you have opened your window.
This command is:AttachGtList. This command has two parameters - GadgetList Id number and Window Id number. So if we had some GadTools in the previous program we would add the following line after opening our window: Now let’s actually add some GadTools to our program. Remember you can only proceed with this section if you have an Amiga 600 or higher. Workbench compatable: WbStirtup VbenchtoFront.
WbToScrcen 0 list Screen 0 Now let's define our gadget and gadtooi: TentGidget 0,20,18,0,1,“Click on ae to Quit!’ STTeit 0,2,20,20,160,U,**,0,*T*1s is «n info bo*!* Retrieuing information and open our window as the active window with our gadgetlist attached: is an info box Window 0,120,70,200,60,S1000 Ry Usndow', 1,2,0 attach our GadTool: I do this with the AcfivateString command and then wait until he presses return (Event code 64).
To retrieve the response that was entered into the gadget into a string variable, you use the StringTextS command detailed in Chapter 26-5.
Information from GadTools can be retneved in almost the same way by using GTGetStnng to retrieve information from GTStrings and by using GTGetlnteger to retrieve information from GTIntegers.
The only other information retrievable from a GadTool is one of its tags, as explained in B.U.M. 5, by using GTGetAttrs. Here is the syntax for the GadTool retneval commands as I don't think they are documented anywhere: Stnng$ =GTC tString(Gadgeil1tt,ld) Vili6TSttIntcger((adgetlist,Id) Val=tTSnAtirt(6»dgetU*t,ld,Tag) Well it’s time for me to say goodbye but don’t forget, keep practicing and try out as many gadgets as you can, as only practice will make you confident enough to keep going.
In the next issue I will start on the first part of a WorkBench compatible program, using all the information I've tried to cram into your heads in the Iasi three issues, including this one.
By now you should have noticed how the grouping system of gadget lists works and how you can see which gadget was hit by using the id number.
If you have two windows open and you have one gadget list for each then don't worry, because you can still find out which window the gadget came from.
You can do this by using the EventWindow command which tells you the id number of the window. Then you can check the gadget in the same way as above and you'll know which gadget was used from which list, by knowing which list was assigned to which window.
The gadget just used is one of the four basic gadgets which the Amiga 500 supported, the others being: Shape Gadget, String Gadget and Slider Gadget.
But if you own an Amiga 1200 then you’ll almost definitely know about theGadtools extension to the old gadgets, bringing almost complete flexibility to your programs.
GadTools are just as easy to use as Gadgets. You declare them at the beginning just like menus and gadgets and you can even put them in the same Gadget list as normal Gadgets.
The difference comes in attaching them to a window. You still put the GadgetList parameter at the end of the window command but you also need to add another (See Ref.Manual Chapter 26-6 onwards for parameters) If you wanted to pre-set the string with a response you can do this with theSetString command, whereas if you wanted the StringGadget cleared before the user uses it then this can be done with ClearString.
There is one thing to note about StringGadgets, and that is they have to be activated before the user can enter information into them. This is normally done when the user clicks on the gadget with the mouse and is shown by a cursor which appears in the gadget.
But if you wanted to ask the user a question and then make him her write the response in the gadget, you can In the original gadgets there is only one major gadget which can gather information from the user and this is the StringGadget. The string gadget has an area of memory dedicated to receiving information from the user when he she uses that gadget.
There are several options which you have in controlling these gadgets, ranging from pre-setting the contents of this gadget to clearing them completely, as well as being able to read the contents.
Here is a quick list of the commands to hand: Click on we to ttuitil My Window window with gadgets in only twelve lines of code.
ClearStrlng SetStr mg RcsetString Unfortunately there is one minor probla with GadTools, and that is that ybu Odd use events to tell you when a GadTool ha been pressed (i.e. Event = S20does ft work).
So the only way around this is to wi until the GadgetHit command returns tt right GadTools Id number instead of Wi ing for the event code.
In a way this can be used to your adva tage in the sense that if you have a gadg list of both gadgets and gadtools mi: together, you can determine whether or m an old gadget was used if an Event of & is returned. If not then you know that GadTools was probably used.
If you have any questions that yo need addressing from reading th column then you can write to Mich* Milne, Blitzing on the Amiga, c Amiga Computing. Europres Publications Ltd, Europa Hous Adlington Park, Macclesfield SK' 4NP. (NB; Please state what machir you are using and any periferals yc have!)
And as well as showing the simplicity j GadTools this also demonstrates the i plete compatability that the B.U.M i update brings between Gadge andGadTools.

These extremes are changing as we ceak, as more and more people from all

alien-to-each-other hobbies still ar ft the mind somewhat,
Heart Track, to the initiated, is a utility to
• •rip monitor that vital organ’s activities dur- rq exercise. To
the uninitiated, the heart is i pump-like vessel situated
slightly to the on your torso. Opening the box reveals a rgie
disk, a chest band, a transmitter and ’eceiver.
The process is simple. Attach the trans-
- tter to the chest band and put it round roar rippling torso,
plug the receiver into the Amiga, load in the software and
you're in rcssession of a package that senses ECG agnals.
The transmitter captures these and sends “em to the receiver, which in turn pumps ~em in to the program to be displayed on screen for your delight, That’s it.
Well, almost. Also included is a foam xop that apparently (although it’s not clear
* * all) attaches to the handle of an exercise : - e or other
contraption which then allows «u. I assume, to fix the receiver
onto this mi Rale Manner ffL8 “IMS Mom nclmtoi Til C un sm with
a Velcro band for a more consistent signal. The whole affair is
just a touch flimsy and. As far as I can see, pretty redundant.
The program itself offers an extremely simple-to-use system, mainly due to the fact there really isn’t that much to it. If you just want a general heart reading, pressing on start begins the monitoring.
For the more serious users, schedules can be created which cover the four basic areas of training - warm-up, work, rest and warm down.
By adjusting the time of each and the desired heart minimum and maximum limits, the computer keeps a track of each session. Providing the user with a countdown and a warning alarm when you step out of the predefined heart parameters.
Once the exercise session is completed, a graph can be called up detailing, via colour coding, your heart rate during each stage of your workout. These results can be saved or printed out for future reference and for Charles Atlas "before" and “after" comparisons later on.
RANGE Due to the fact the whole thing is wired into the Amiga, it's hardly the most portable of devices. It’s range is a rather limited four feet but can be increased through the use of an additional Infrared system that expands the range up to ten feet.
While being ideal for running on the spot and multi-gym work, for the more active punter this is obviously limiting.
Heart Track sets out to do a simple task and achieves its goal very effectively, but the real question is whether the package is really worth £95.
The average price of a wrist watch with the same facilities but minus the hefty equipment is around the same price bracket, give or take five pounds.
Because of this, it's hard to recommend something that at the end of the day doesn't offer the versatility and portability essential to the all-round sports person. On [omputers eHercise. (Hercise, computers.

will no doubt have been feeling rather dejected just lately.
Francois not given much thought to the product
* -d Europress have had to put a halt on
- «r developments.
Fl liberated This has led to other languages stealing
- •» limelight away from the package that ~ce ruled supreme.
All is not lost though. There are still thou-
- ••xls of dedicated AMOS users and. While i sizeable user base
remains, third-party elopers will continue to cater for their
• wds.
One such company is the Ayr based T- Scft who. After several months of development. Have released their official Liberator edension - a product that releases AMOS many of the constraints that bind it.
In short, it enables AMOS to access over 300 functions from 47 Commodore and " rd-party libraries. Unfortunately this
- eans that you will not know where to start.
The possibilities are endless. With .cess to the Intuition. Dos. Req and =-exxhost libraries, you will be knocking up our own system-legal utilities in no time at SUPPORT Further more, because Liberator provides . oport for the Intuition library, the program ran open up its own window upon the i-niga’s Workbench screen and multitask : operly. Something that was simply not possible until now.
That is not the end of it. Liberator is com- ratible with all Commodore library calls, rduding those available in version 3.1 of re operating system.
Those that have a data burst cache retween their earlobes will realise that this.
::upled with the Intuition support, means iGA compatibility. Well almost.
With Liberator installed it is possible to rpen up your own AGA screen from within AMOS. But unfortunately, because of the
• on OS friendly manner in which AMOS
• andles screens, you will not be able to use sny of the commands
that display text, jraphics. Sprites or Bobs.
However, you could establish your own i ewport and display images in 256 colours y even Ham8. Useful if you wanted to write 3 GIF or Jpeg viewer in AMOS.
The commands that access the library
• .notions are almost identical to those used
- C and other high-level languages, but
• ere is one advantage.
Because you are programming in the AMOS environment you also benefit from re editors syntax checking, something that I orogrammers would love.
Lets say that you wanted to utilise the file society to matter how hard people try, their can't seem to nail the lid damn on HIJ10S. Undrew Oeeleg looks at a product that promises to breath a bit of life back into the ailing language. requester from the ASL library. Once you had set up an array to hold the parameters required by the function call, you would type: } niE:f(REQ,Q) In the above example. REO holds the address of the parameter array and. If successful. FILE returns a TRUE value that points to the file name chosen by the user.
If you were to write the same line in C you might type: file-aslreQuest(tREA O) As you can see the two are quite similar.
[oming soon The best is still yet to come. Close to completion is an upgrade for Liberator called OrgAsm (which stands for ReORGanised AsseMbler) a really exciting utility that turns GUI'S, created with GadToolsBox, Into a form suitable for use with Liberator.
For those that do not know.
GadToolsBox is a shareware development tool that allows you to design your own front-ends in a very easy and intuitive manner.
Having designed your GUI. GadTools will then create the source code that sets up and communicates with your user interface.
When released it will cost C2.50. as will all further updates to Liberator, which among other things will include an AMOS Professional version.
Liberator's documentation is supplied as an Amiga Guide file and provides you with all the necessary information concerning its installation and use.
Instructions concerning all the various function calls are not supplied. However, you are told where to get hold of the Commodore Autodocs and an address is given for a PD library that can supply Amiga Guide documents for all the third-party libranes.
Learning how to use library function calls is not all that difficult, especially if you have already gained a good knowledge of programming in AMOS.
LEARNING On the other hand, beginners will no doubt find a learning curve ahead of them Although, as the programmer says. "This learning process is what keeps us addicted to the great Amiga, so don’t despair!!"
Liberator is one of the most exciting releases that AMOS has seen in a long time. I cannot see it convincing those of us that have already moved onto other languages. Such as C, to switch our allegiance back to AMOS, but it will certainly brighten up the lives of those who have stuck with this legendary programming package .!•* The bottom line Product: Liberator Supplier: T-Soft Price: £22.50 Address: PO Box 598.

VARIATIONS The manual gives some examples of the sort of variations that can be created by using, for example. Dpaint. The font appear* ance can be altered by resizing a brush, or by adding thicker edges creating a bevelled effect.

Initially 2 Many Fonts, with its range of colour typefaces, may seem like good value.
However, the fact that there are PD colourfont packages available ranging from £5 to £15 puts things into a different perspective.

White opens the door to [reating your am installation scripts
in our guide to using the official fommadore Installer easa To
use Installer you are expected to license with Commodore USA.
However, with the problems Commodore are having at present, it
would probably be considered fairly safe to use the product
without a license agreement.
Part 1 Amiga Computings license agreement was never returned but we use Installer any* how. However, the decision to use the Installer is purely yours and Amiga Computing cannot be held responsible for any breaches of the license agreement by readers.
P until recently the Amiga has never had its own totally dedicated installation program, and in the past hard drive owners have had to wrestle with AmigaDOS script files, programs that shut out the Workbench environment, installation procedures where flexibility goes out of the window and many programs that are installable, provided the user does it by hand.
Fortunately. Commodore came to the res- Speaking the language Now we've got that out of the way. Let's take a look at the language. The language offers different procedures for installing different types of file. General files, libraries and fonts all have different routines which make installation more intuitive.
Each routine has its own associated commands applicable to the type of file being installed. This means that you can break up your installation scripts into easily readable modules, which makes debugging a hell of a lot easier.
What we’ll do now is take a look at a particular routine and take a look at its associated commands.
As an example routine, we will be looking at the one which installs libraries. I will show the routine and then describe each function individually.
If certain functions are missing, the Installer will show a compile error. These functions will be labelled.
(copylib (proapi "Installing diskfont.librirr to LIBS:") (helD icopylib-hilp) (lQgr?e "ttirtltkfenMlbriry") (cm? -LIBS:-) (conffra) (nogauge) ) Let's take a look at each command to see what they actually do.
This tells installer that the routine that follows should be understood as a library routine. We don't end the copylib function with parenthesis ) until we have finished the entire routine.
(proapt 'Instilling diskfont.library to UBS:’) This function merely tells the user what is going on. If you don't want to display a message simply type promptBoth parenthesis are included () because this function is classed as an independent command.
Prompt must always be present.
(hdo icopylib-help) Installer has certain in-built help pages which are displayed when you click on the Help button on the main Installer interface. If you wish to add your own help text you can. But I will be explaining this process later on. Help must always be present.
(source rlii:dtskfMt.libriry') techniques you learn in this series your: as I cannot write example scripts dedic to software which I know nothing about.
? © cue by developing an installation program that could be programmed by anyone, was totally flexible and could function quite happily from Workbench.
This program - Installer - is now used by most software developers, although game developers continue to neglect its advantages.
What this tutorial aims to achieve is to teach you how to use the language and apply it to your programs. However, I will not be concentrating solely on hard drive users, as Installer is quite capable of installing software to another floppy disk.
In order to fpllow this tutorial you will need to own an Amiga running Workbench 2.0 or higher. Obviously, you will need to apply the There will be plenty of examples, these will be purely for demonstrate purposes.
You should copy the Installer progra found in the C: directory of Amig Computing Cover Disks into the C: directo of your hard drive or floppy disk.
Installer was created by Commodore as i tool for hard drive owners and floppy ov to install software with the minimum an of fuss. It allows total control over installed procedures, offering the user a friendly in face to work with in a familiar environment - Workbench.
It is this flexibility that makes Installer i This tells Installer which file it is that you want install. It is always best to first copy everything wish to install into Ram as Ram i$ faster and ai eradicates multiple disk swapping. Source mus always be present.
(dMt ‘LIBS:*) This tells Installer where the source file should be I copied to. This must be a valid assign or path name I Dest must always be present.
(cpnfira) Confirm requires you to okay the copying process I clicking the Proceed button. In the case of libranes i confirm will inform you if you already have that parte- J ular library in the LIBS: directory.
It will also inform you of the version number of the ] library being installed and the one that is alread present.
Whenever a file is copied a blue bar appears indicat- j ing the progress of the copying process. You I It has the ability to cater for all set-ups and is also capable of provid- rrror script files should something go 1 Installer itself is not capable of instal- alone. In order to function it needs a script file which it translates and executes. It is the script file language snail be looking at.
This diagram shows tho processes naadad to usa Installer. An Icon Is attached to the script tila which in turn is iliractad to Installar. Tha Appname command In the icon Tool Typas tails Installar to print tha mas- saga ‘Walcoma to tha installation utility when It Is run language owes most of its structure . Sp. A language which relies on the use of parenthesis or brackets ().
The parenthesis control all the functions
- •? Language and therefore debugging can prove awkward.
TERING ¦rwever. Once the actual functions have understood, more time can be spent
- aking sure the parenthesis are correct Doce these have been
mastered, the language becomes much clearer, parenthesis
control the functions in the same way as parenthesis in atical
equations - that is to say that amount of open brackets *(*
must be matched by the amount of close ts *)’ and vice versa.
This is where of the errors creep in.
R*tow is an example Installer script. This 's main function is to show the use : arenthesis (don't worry about what it nght now): via Installer, there are certain files that are needed Apart from the actual Installer program, you also need the installation script file and an icon which when double-clicked loads and then directs Installer to your senpt.
The icon must be a Project and must be attached to your script file, For example, let’s imagine you had created a script file called InstallMyProg. You would save the Project icon as InstallMyProg.info to the same directory.
With the icon complete, you then need to direct it to Installer. Clicking once on the icon, select Information from the Icons menu on Workbench and where it reads Default Tool: type in the path of the Installer - say MyDisk:c lnstaller as an example.
Add a new Tool Type to the icon and type
* PPM«:HyProg The Appname Tool Type is needed by Installer when
it pnnts Welcome to the installation utility. In this case it
would display: Uclcoae to the RyPro; Installation utility You
will be adding other Tool Type commands to the icon at a later
date. For a visual description of the above, check out the
diagram.
In next month's article I will provide you with a complete Installer script using the routines explained this month and a few extras so that you can gain a good impression of how to set up a fully working script.

Gadtool menu defini- ms are based on sets of data blocks

dc. b T,Mlll Listing 1: A 680x0 gadtools monu definition menu
title, a menu item, or a dummy 'end of menu' value. Standard
definitions are: RR.TITIE EQU 1 NM ITER m 2 HU EH: ESU 0 The
gnm_Pad field is always zero - it's just there to ensure that
the next field is word aligned). The only other fields you
need to worry about are the gnrn Label and gnm_CommKey
fields, which are pointers to text strings giving a name and
a keyboard shortcut for the menu item.
The menu I'll be using is very simple. It’s just a PROJECT menu with two entries: “Select File...,’ and “Quit To Workbench" and all we do to set up the NewMenu structures is define some data statements to represent the menu title, the two items, and a terminal end entry.
Take a good look at listing 1 and compare my field definitions to those given in the NewMenu definition - all should become clear in a relatively short space of time.
Notice incidentally that the structure holds pointers to strings - that’s why I've defined the strings using separate dc.b pseudo-op statements and placed the corresponding labels into the NewMenu definitions.
Attaching a menu to a window is not easy because several steps have to be performed. Firstly, we have to make a call to the Gadtools GetVisuallnfoAO routine and on exit a corresponding FreeVisuallnfoO function has to be executed.
Secondly, a CreateMenusA() routine must be executed. This too must be coupled with a FreeMenus() function before the program terminates.
Thirdly, a call to LayoutMenusA() must be made. This needs to be checked for success but there is no corresponding de-allocation routine to be performed in this case.
Finally, the menu can be installed using the Intuition SetMenuStripO function and here the function must be coupled with a ClearMenuStrip() call prior to the program terminating.
ROUTINES So, we've got a whole load of routines, any or all of which could conceivably fail as we try to attach our menu. If an error did occur, we would have to ensure that only those routines that had been successful get their equivalent de-allocation routines executed.
Now you'll know from last month how I'm handling this problem. Each task that has to be performed is being written as a sub-routine pair that contain the initial settingup allocation code, and the corresponding closedown de-allocation code.
Whenever a routine is successful the deallocation routine address gets pushed onto a de-allocation stack. Listing 2 contains one set of the new routines - you’ll find all the others in the cover disk source code.
Study these arrangements well because they form a coding pattern that I'll be using extensively in this series.
We preserve some registers, set up and make the required function call, check for any errors and then either return an error indicator or push the address of the close- SetVisInlo aovta.l aO-*1 dO-d1,*(»7) preserve regs rts aovei.l vorkbench_p,aO aovti.v «MC_EN0,i1 no tegs FreeVislnfo aovea.l e0-i1 d0-d1,-(8?)

Tines have executed without error the menu will be set up and active - so we can call the event handler by loading an address register with the address of the window. Locating the user port address, and passing that value to the menu handler routine like this: Once the various routines had been coded it was just a matter of getting them executed and.

The reason should be pretty obvious but I'll have more to say about the menu handler next month. For now here are some final notes to help with this month's code: Firstly, you'll be able to assemble the code using the same approach as with the first two installments because, at the moment. I’m continuing to use standard Amiga system definitions but placing equivalent definitions within the source rather than using the official include files.
This means the program can be assembled with any assembler - even if you haven’t got the official includes!

I ought to mention that there is a rather more elegant list loop based approach that can be used instead.
At the moment however, so you can see the various stages as explicit steps. I’ll continue making a linear senes of sub-routine calls. By the time the above rou- down routine onto the de-allocation stack.
The message system used on the Amiga is, at the grass roots level, an Exec facility.
Information can be sent from one task to another by creating a data packet known as a Message structure and then transmitting it (sending it) to its destination.
Messages pass between tasks using another Exec defined structure called an MsgPort, more commonly called a “message port" or just a "port," Ports are basically software entities whose job. Among other things, is to act as a receiving station for messages.
Before a program can receive a message it must have allocated and initialised a suitable message port and the good news here, as far as our program is concerned. Is that Intuition will have automatically set up the required port (called a User Port ) automatically, Gadtools-created menus are quite easy to handle because the messages sent to the window's user port are just conventional IntuiMessages.
As with all Exec messages, the real message data is always provided as a message For other examples of function utilities relating to the listings given here, see the Assembler file on this month's cover disk which also contains the usual Assembler code.
Structure extension and. In the case IntuiMessages. The data packet ends looking like this: STRUCTURE IntuiRessage,0 STRUCT iaJiecPlessage,WI_SI2l (basic message structure. Subseq fields are the extensions that provide real data) HORD LABEL LOHG

iajpe.ciallink iaJIZEOF With only one port to look at there
is a pie function, called WaitPort(), available use and we
use it to wait for the win user port to become non-empty,
then lect and examine any messages that arrived.
Listing 3 shows a simple menu handler that performs this task, and see that message class and code v are used to decide whether we menu event and. If so. Whether the value indicates that the message should ignored or not.
If you trace through the code you'll that the only messages of interest MENUPICK messages, whose item corresponds to either menu event 0 a file) or menu event 1 (quit to Worl Function definition box-outs are beginning to encroach on the spa should be using for explanations, so month, although I've included a few outs (see CoverDisk) for the menu i functions you are expected to get the details from the source code.
You'll notice that the delay loop from month's code has been removed the window will now stay open until “quit to Workbench" menu option is ted (this option causes the menu routine to return so that the code ex falls through to the closedown code) On the Devpac specific front in- you should notice that I am now to make quite a lot of use of local i beginning with a period.
If you hit snags with a non-De assembler you'll need to get hold of two for details of alternative conv Anyway that's it for this issue.

123 MARLOWS HEMEL HEMPSTEAD HERTFORDSHIRE HP 1 IBB U0E PD and SHAREWARE sector Oaue (usick is practically skint; so there's no better man to pick put this month's most outstanding public domain, shareware and license ware releases Once there lived a man who owned a goat, upon which he did lavish much attention. He would saunter down to the shops of a weekend aod invest in many extravagant gifts to shower upon it. Intending to make it stronger and healthier.
Meanwhile his poor neighbour, who also owned a goat, had precious little money to fritter away on frivolous fancies. So had to content himself with cheaper alternatives.
Despite this, his goat grew up to be equally strong and healthy.
Then one day, the first man got a message from his bank saying he was two thousand pounds overdrawn and a nice man would be coming around to repossess his goat.
And yea verily his neighbour did chuckle for three whole days and nights.
And believe it or not. Amigas can be a bit like goats. In some ways. Maybe.
Duingo Programmed by: Mat Fascione Available from: Magnetic Fields Disk No. GA196 There are some people who have a natural nack for doing incredibly well on those pub quiz arcade machines, standing in front of the thing for hours, pumping in streams of ten-pence pieces, racking up
* “uge scores and often watching piles of coins build up in the
winnings tray.
The rest of the population lack any kind of ability in the obscure trivia department but nevertheless love participating, as is evident by the outstanding success of that most banal of board games, Trivial Pursuits.
If you can't stand collecting pieces of pie but still yearn for the challenge inherent in plucking long forgotten dross out of the dark depths of your mind, then Quingo is the ideal solution.
It combines often horrendously taxing multiple choice quiz questions with a scoring system borrowed from bingo, to produce an interesting, if freqently frustrating end product.
What was on the B-side of the Strangler's "Peaches’’? Which geological period first saw the reptiles as dominant species? These are the sort of brain-bending teasers you will have to contend with.
However, since it is impossible to transfer winnings into usable credits, many will find it practically impossible to win more than a couple of quid.
The difficulty level is sometimes fiendishly high, but nevertheless Quingo does hold the attention for a while.
Please Release (Tie Programmed by: lain B McCaffrey Available from: NBS Disk No. P159 Worthy of a mention, if only because it raised a fair bit of interest when first played, this extremely short animation cannot really be described without giving the whole joke away.
You'll need a 2Mb machine to run it, for some reason. Once it has eventually loaded, there's a nice sample of the Wire Chaos Produced by: Skull Army Software Available from: David J Cruickshank Disney may have had a box-office flop oa their hands when they came up with cufl sci-fi classic Tron. But they were unwt* tingly inspiring hordes of programmer*] when they dreamt up the infamous ligrq cycles game.
Unfortunately, there have been very few decent computer versions ol this, and admittedly I feared the worst on slipping this particular disk into the drive.
I need not have been concerned, how* ever, since Wire Chaos is a polished and professional game which boasts a whole host of challenging and enjoyabii features.
It also offers the chance to involve up to five players in the PD demo version and six in the registered shareware ver-] sion, and as such joins the ranks of mult«- player classics, where it finds itself m eponymous country tune and a well drav animation which lasts a matter of secon

Still, it's quite amusing the first couple t times and for that reason alone it might I worth a look, Operation Firestorm Programmed by: Phil Ruston Available from: Amiganuts PD Disk No. LW26 Remember Green Beret? It was the ultimate 8-bit walky-shooty game, and whiitl the gameplay wasn't exactly mentally demanding, it provided amusement for well, maybe a couple of minutes.
For the uninitiated, in a walky-shoi game you take control of some fello who's either incredibly brave or incredii stupid - or more likely both.
He wanders from left to right brandishii a large weapon of some description, whi he uses to ensure that every other movii sprite on the screen is removed.
At the same time he occasionally makes the effort to dodge enemy fire,J because if he takes one too many h he'll explode. The emphasis, the ast observer will notice, was not particularly realism.
The cynical might ask, why bother| resurrecting such a tedious genrtl of game? Well, commercial games producer ICE tried it with Fireforce a pie of years ago and it wasn't actually ti bad.
I suppose this version could be a I worse. It's well presented with reasonal graphics and adequate sound, althou the aging coin-op style wibbly mus quickly gets irritating.

ability, or even to com- »te in challenging maze sections.
The game. Playability is present in copious amounts, and a good many hours , could be spent crowded around the keyboard with a bunch of partially inebriated companions revelling in the addictive action Stylish touches such as the sound fleets, which appear to have been sam- : ed from the film, add considerably to from the main menu, and there are two “packs of cards" each with ten different games included.
The difficulty level ranges from pretty low to relatively high on some stages, although not frustratingly so.
Correct answers are rewarded with praise from the infamous Amiga “voice" and incorrect ones are met with a “Try again" message. Get a question wrong the first time and another go is granted before the computer moves on to the next one.
Unfortunately, if it's wrong the second time the program does not point out the correct answer, which seems a little strange for a piece of educational software.
Despite this. Ask Me Another is still an interesting program and if you can afford the time to supervise the child’s use of it, then there is no reason why it should not prove a rewarding and beneficial activity.

A selection of games are available, rang- ng from telling the time to completing

Each answer is pven a number, and the user clicks on one ¦J ten little buttons in the bottom-left corner x enter the answer, instructions can be displayed on screen RrtistiH Programmed by: Andrew Campbell Available from: Bus Stop Licenceware One of the most powerful and fun to use art packages to have appeared for a considerable time comes in the shape of this shareware production aimed squarely at younger users.
A whole host of bizarre drawing tools enable the on-screen imitation of all manner of primary schooi- style artwork. Unique tools such as runny jam (which drips if the pointer is held still for too long) and messy comb are present and are great fun to use.
Other features include a selection of flower and plant parts which can simply be stamped on, and in the full registered version a selection of built-in pictures is included. Standard load and save options are of course present.
Silly sounds accompany most actions and these further add to the appeal of the product to children.
However, it isn't missing any of the features you would expect to find in a traditional art package and when combined with some of the more wacky eTfects quite impressive pictures can be created.
It's the ideal mess-free way to let a young cMd experiment artistically.

A smattering of sampled sound effects add atmosphere, although it would have been nice to have had a noise for the ball rolling up the alley as well as the actual collisions between ball and pins.
As might be expected, two players can challenge each other to friendly games.
However, for once there is also a single player tournament mode which adds a degree of longevity.
In this the player tries to make it through six international events which are nothing if not challenging. Each tournament has six knockout rounds - even the first of which is pretty demanding.
Bowling is achieved by a couple of timely clicks on the fire button and nothing more, but there is still much skill involved in ensuring good scores are consistently obtained.
Those who are somewhat inept at real ten-pin bowling will be pleased to learn that complete misses, where the ball trundles lazily along the gutter, are extremely rare.
However, scoring strikes regularly requires practice and up against computer competition beginners will find the going tough at first.
All in all, Strike is a high quality piece of licenceware which is definitely worth the asking price.
Hardly original but fairly well done, Love AGA is a demo featuring everything you'd expect - a couple of rotating 3D shapes, the odd well-drawn if unimaginative still picture, and music that fortunately breaks the mould and abandons the usual techno fare.
Among the more impressive bits are a few nicely shaded objects spinning about in front of subtly shaded backgrounds, and a "phong twist" effect with a distorted cube rotating strangely.
Unfortunately there's also a selection of flying dots attempting to make yet more spinning shapes, although a nice colourful line-changing effect and a zooming mandlebrot set arrive just in time to prevent the user reaching out to reset.
The bizarre and slightly sick Marilyn Monroe picture illustrated is one of the other more notable bits, and the end credits scroll over an impressive rendered - and rotating, funnily enough - Fairlight logo.
However, the whole demo still seems to lack any real an alarmingly regular basis.
Droptool, which incidentally is in no way related to Dropbox. Does not have the advantage of automatically being able to decide what to do with a file - you have to tell it by clicking on one of eight options.
However, it completely blows away Dropbox in terms of reliability, since I have so far experienced no difficulties whatsoever in using it.
Using Droptool. Files can be passed to another program for viewing or editing, or to the printer so that a hard copy can be obtained.
Alternatively, information about the icon or the version number can be displayed, .lha archives can be extracted to RAM:, and Multiview can be called.
This latter feature is especially welcome because, since Droptool can unpack Powerpacked files. Multiview can now be used to display packed documents.
Individuality or flair, and well programmed though may be, it is hard to see it being booted more th two or three times before being consigned perma-1 nently to the disk box.

We give Electronic Art's Theme Park a test run.
Theme Parksi02 127] Banshee CD32 Profile . J t(or Empire Software, famous for its brilliant talents in the s mutation's department, are back with another one.
Dawn Patrol, created by Rowan Software, famous for Reach for the Skies, is a true flight simulation with the emphasis firmly on pilot control and "seat of the pants" skill.
The PC version uses such up-to-date techniques as image mapping layered on a polygonal frame, with light sourcing, gouraud shading and 640 x 400 SVGA resolutions, that the screen looks more realistic than anything you've seen so far on the PC. The Amiga version might not be as graphically fantastic as the PC, but it still promises to raise a few eyebrows. You can choose from 15 period aircraft from World War 1 that will fly just as the originals did. Choice of planes include the Fokker Triplane, Eindecker, Sopwith Camel. SPAD 7, so you can choose which side you want to fly for.
Dawn Patrol The effects of battle damage are significant and are in accordance with every aerial manoeuvre you make. Bullets rip canvas and chop up the woodwork of the plane, plus bits of the fuselage and wing sections slowly peel away from the aircraft. Likewise, the sound effects are superb and simply add to the authenticity of combat manoeuvres.
It's been a quiet time for flight simulations just recently, but Dawn Patrol promises to make some b noises in the Amiga world. You can have a closer lod at Rowan Software's flight sim via a System Previ« which will appear in next month's magazine.
O. QQflQ i system Asiother blow for TeaBti 17 Yes, those barmy
bargain boys (and girls) from Wakefield are out and about on
the budget run once more with the forthcoming release of
Body Blows AGA- This best-selling beat- ’em-up features no
less than 11 tough combatants, 256 colour graphics, six
beautifully drawn background screens, four or eight player
tournament, Gremlin, more Sensible fodder, Blows Budget
Bonanza, plus what’s the unique "Tag Team” mode previously
only seen in Ultimate Body Blows and it's hard drive
installable to boot.
Body Blows AGA should be out by the time your eyes have scanned over this page and it will cost you f 14.99. Owners of the original Body Blows can upgrade their game by sending their original Body Blows disks (box and manuals not necessary) with a cheque or Postal Order made payable to Team 17 for £7.99 to: Body Blows Upgrades. Team 17, 6 St John's Square, Wakefield WF1 2QX, England.
To be happening at this autumn’s ICTS Cannon Fodder 2 A ZJBi' * It's showtime!
It had to happen. Those Sensible Software geezers are proud to present yet another sequel, this time to the amazingly popular and ultra violent Cannon Fodder.
The aptly named Cannon Fodder 2 will feature a whole bundle of new levels featuring more chaos and destruction than you can shake a stick at.
This time around you'll point 'n' click your way around levels from various periods throughout history.
The action will start in and around the modern day Middle East then will progress into a Medieval world with castles and battlements dotted around the place.
The gun-toting arcade fun then leaps to the 1930s and promises to feature gangsters in abundance.
Sensible's shoot-'em-up will feature an abundance of new lethal weapons and vehicles, plus the excellent "War's never been so much fun" tune is going to be totally remixed and if Sensible are to be believed, will feature lead vocals from Sensible supremo Jon Hare.
Details are sketchy at the moment and the Sensible lads seem to be keeping things firmly under their hats, but Cannon Fodder 2 is basically going to be more of the same, mainly due to the fact that the original game left very little room for any improvements. The heated and bloody action should be finished in time for a Christmas release.
The twice-yearly industry computer trade show will have been and gone by the time you read this, but System will be at the three-day event once again and it promises to be the most exciting one yet.
The big boys are back in town with Nintendo, Sega and Panasonic all • * attendance and all with machines o'- the way. Trade and media focus wf be on trade body ELSPA (European Leisure Software Publishers Association) who are expected to unveil a White Paper outlining th* 92 IBM r «as ten years ago that a character going by the name 9 Monty Mole achieved national notoriety on ITV's News m Ten by starring in a computer game with Arthur Sorgill.
'ttle did Monty or Arthur know that the ensuing pub- ctv would help turn this early platform game into the
* rrt six-figure seller for a fledgling games company abed
Gremlin Graphics.
Tremendous change in the computer industry. Gremlin never was a Graphics company and there have been times when this has been rather confusing.
"As for the logo we'll miss it, but it was beginning to be a bit like wearing flares and platform shoes in a room full of Doc Martens."
Since those early days of 16K RAM packs, hardly a
- onth went by without a classic game from Gremlin fea- tlanng
prominently in the software charts.
Monty on the Run, Jack the Nipper, Thing on a Spring, . Mitchblade, Hero Quest, Lotus, Zool and Premier rf oager, to mention but a few, have all helped turn the J*«ffield-based software house into one of Europe's pre- mtt developers and publishers of computer and console fames.
To celebrate the ten years of success. Gremlin have apc ded to change things around slightly. They will now
* known as Gremlin Interactive and will have a new rporate
image.
Gremlin INTERACTIVE m a bold move designed to reflect the company's con- ftdence in its plans for the next ten years, the famous awchedelic rainbow lozenge is about to be replaced.
Gremlin’s Managing Director, Ian Stewart, has this to ay on the change: "Of course there will be some sadness u see the old style go, but we do need to reflect the ...In with the new IlGchnologi] J Tbe world ol computers is ever-changing and System is here to keep you mre ol what else is bappeoiiq within the fast- moving computer entertainment industry.
• Super Street Fighter 2, one of the biggest games of the year on
the MegaDrive, failed to hold its RRP on the first day of its
release. The game was discounted by many stores by around
£10-£15 and its intended f 59.39 RRP and a flat cartridge
market has been blamed.
All change at Gremlin!
• Sony has pulled out of this autumn's ECTS and is going ahead
with its own off-site trade event. The firm decided it needed
more space to show off the huge catalogue of autumn winter
titles due to hit European shelves via the Sony Psygnosis
publishing axis. Titles on show include Lemmings 3. But the
star of the event will be the Sony Playstation, a machine
tipped to hit the big-time in 1995.
T Thursday 1st September 1994 was the deadline for all computer and video games to have an age suitability rating displayed on the boxes. The new classification system means that all car* tridge, disk and CD*ROM titles released by ELSPA members will carry an age sticker. ELSPA believes that by the deadline around 70*80 per cent of all Gallup chart games will display the new classification ratings.
• BMG's software division is set to release three titles to
coincide with the UK launch of Panasonic's 3DO. The trio of
games - Total Eclipse. The Horde and Star Control 2 - are the
result of the firm's distribution deal with US games developer
Crystal Dynamics and will each retail for £39.99. Further 3DO
releases are planned before Christmas, including Off World
Interceptor, PaTaank and GEX.

- -.ccess later on in the year. Virgin Interactive Entertainment
will be parading the game of Disney's massive hit movie, The
Lion King.
Produced in association with Disney's own animation team, the game looks set to be as beautifully crafted as the film itself.
Multimedia giant Time Warner will be unveiling its interactive division's biggest ever project, Rise of the Robots. It’s one of the titles everyone is talking about and people within the industry will be able to get their hands on a final version.
ECTS Event Marketing Manager Minnie McBride, when quizzed about the forthcoming event, offered: "The next generation of gaming hardware has been talked about for years, at the ECTS it finally comes into focus.
"And with all the world's major software publishers also preparing to show their breakthrough products, ECTS will be the place to take a peek Into the future of interactive entertainment."
Nrnnktr IIM 93 The scores ?n the doors Come on regular readers, you must know hm it works by now. New readers welcome you to the most exciting part of the magazine, hold on to your hats... Looking for a quality game to spend your cash on? Have a look at these selections from the last three months which will help you make that important buying decision.
Benefactor Benefactor is the best thing Psygnosis have released in a long time. It feels like a montage of Flashback and Psygnosis' very own genocidal pets, the Lemmings.
Location and puzzle aspect of Benefactor make it an engrossing challenge.
Benefactor is the type of title that will keep the most dextrous platform freaks and puzzle lovers alike twiddling well into the wee hours.
Both the graphics and sound have been implemented very well. The variety of both Banshee I do like this game and the weirdest bit it, I've never been a fan of shoot-'em-upsl They usually bore me to bits, but Banshee has that elusive quality that drags you in, Each level demands new challenges which are genuinely demanding, and the learning curve is just right.
This is an intense and extremely satisfying game that should tempt any game's fan with an ounce of adrenaline in their veins. The Harvey Keitel of shoot-'em-ups.
Quick the Thunder Rabbit I'm sure many of you are now familiar with our ne scoring system, but for those reading Amic Computing for the first time and those who mig have forgotten exactly how it works, here is k guide to the System scoring, err system.
In our opinion, review scores have lost their co text as a percentage; some products receiving score which were only a few percentage short of being tr "perfect" game, when in truth they were on marginally above average.
OK, so the scores might seem unnaturally low , first but that's only because other scoring systerr tend to be on the high side and perhaps not as cor prehensive or honest as they could be.
In the long run you'll receive a more concise ar reader-orientated review that's geared towards th consumer.
0-20 This is given to the lowest of the low 21-30 An all-round poor game that may have a single saving grace 31-40 Just below the average, perhaps let down by a few indiscretions.
Casting aside all previous platform games, Quik is really a perfectly funky little game Admittedly, my first reaction to a platform game about rabbits was not printable in a family publication, but I was won over by the Adventure fans will be delighted that Sierra have finally decided to release the sixth adventure in the King's Quest series onto the Amiga. As far as adventure games go, they don’t get much better than this. With its brilliant graphics, a fairy tale of a plot, superb playability and a level of addiction that will keep you coming back for more and more.
Sheer professionalism of it all.
It's probably more suited to younger players, due to its simplicity and cuddly approach, but despite every aspect of it screaming "cliche" it comes across as a very fun game.
King's Quest 6 67-77 A game of high quality that you as a reviewer would have no reservation in recommending.
Anything of this ilk would be awarded the SILVER award.
41-55 Games of this score are roughly average with 50 being a perfectly average score.
A cracking little platformer. It looks beautiful with its pastel coloured graphics, it has a nice and cheesy poptastic soundtrack and even the gameplay differs from its competitors as it's heavily puzzle-based. Pinkie, as a concept.
Pinkie isn’t anything different and doesn't contain any new surprises, but as a game on its own works remarkably well. Pinkie is a harmless little platformer that won't hurt anybody.
90-100 The best in its genre. This benchmark title receives the PLATINUM title.
Universe Without doubt, Universe is one of the games of the year so far. It has class in copious amounts and is presented outstandingly well.
The combined icon and text control system is intuitive and friendly, making this a simple game to get to grips with.
Some of the puzzles encountered are completely mystifying, until suddenly the solution dawns on you and you wonder why on earth you didn't realise what to do a little earlier on, Universe is the type of adventure game that will be enjoyed by even those normally disinterested in the; genre, and must be highly recommended- Iff***' platinum AWARD 34 NFWI CD32 EXPANSION Ivfc mm m & cd-rom drive for A600 1200 ! 80F DETAILS SILICA - THE UK's No1 AMIGA SPECIALISTS FROM SILICA 0 GREAT CD TITLES MICROCOSM + CHAOS ENGINE PLUS 4 EXTRA TITLES WHILE STOCKS LAST

Tel.. ilmaril's Ishar games have earned a well-deserved place in most RPG games players' collections. Renowned for their superb graphics which have their own unique style and their deep and absorbing plots, it's little wonder that they have become one of the most popular RPGs around.
And now Silmarils are set to stun once again with their final episode to complete the trilogy.
1 7 j f V STORYLINE The complete story of Ishar stretches right back over four games, starting off with the "Crystals of Arborea" where Jarel, Prince of the Elves, sets out to find the magic crystals which would oppose the power of the evil Morgoth, the black god. He succeeds and kills Morgoth. Jarel becomes ruler and the country is renamed Kendoria.
Ishar: Legend of the Fortress went on to tell of how the fortress of Ishar - which belonged to Krogh, offspring of Morgoth - was conquered by a group of adventurers.
The powers of chaos were banished from Kendoria and it then became the 'in' place to be, so to speak.
A city developed and was named "Zach's Island." A powerful figure emerged - the cities bad guy, Shandar, monk of chaos - and he became your modern day drug dealer, selling hallucinogenic potions.
In Ishar 2, Messengers of Doom the "Messengers" succeeded in freeing "Zach's Island' from Shandar's influence. Shandar was killed or so everyone thought, but he devised a spell before his death that allowed his vital energy and consciousness to survive even after the death of his body. He now intends to return in the form of the deadly winged dragon, Wohratax.
Shandar's plan is flawed however, in that the reincarnation can only take place during the planetary conjunction of the two moons, the sun and the planet Ishar. You must destroy the dragon before this happens.
One of the most outstanding aspects of the Ishar series has been the graphics. They create the rich atmosphere that always seems abundant in the Ishar games. This third offering is no exception and continues the high standard set by its predecessors.
The many different locations provide variety and the vast attention to detail that has been paid to each scene is amazing. Outdoor locations include everything from towns, jungles and fortresses to caverns, while indoor settings range from libraries, taverns and Tina Hackett dons her wizards hat, grabs her magic wand and stumbles in to the world of spells and sorcery to see what’s temples. Each one is full of intricate detail and really make the game.
However, while a great deal of atmosphere has been created by using night and day time sequences!
(i. e. the scene goes from dark to light) it has beer done at the
expense of practicalities such as being able to see where you
are!
This results in having to lie low until dawn breal and is rather frustrating when you are just in the mi die of getting somewhere.
Characters have been nicely animated and add re ism to the game and the sprites are imaginative a well created.
Ir 1114 "•• e have been many RPGs on the Amiga to compare Ishar 3 to.
Sftar 3 is your more traditional role-playing adventure, both visually and in » eplay. It is superior to a lot of its counterparts in its superb graphics and web
* :*ots and sub-plots.
Recently we have seen Thalion's Ambermoon, the sequel to Amberstar. This
- c'essed and received a mighty 81% (AMC75). Ishar 3 is similar
in the graphical
r. fe it uses which is that of 'traditional* RPGs. However,
Ambermoon also ¦ ploys an overhead, two-dimensional view.
A more obvious comparison to make would be with Ishar 1 and 2. Ishar 3 com- res favourably, both graphically and with the actual size of the game.
Ishar 3 will prove a classic RPG, rating among some of the classics of this genre.
Unfortunately there isn't a great deal of sound to comment on, which may be a good thing compared to the sound that is actually used. For instance, the occasional bell tolls in the distance, or a brief if rather irrelevant tune is played when you walk into an Inn.
The game starts with a moody tune which does conjure up the atmosphere and it's a great shame that some other music couldn't have been used throughout the game.
In a title of this nature, things could have really been enhanced by a good choice of tunes or effects.
Uje Hub in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.
80% Despite some of the grumbles I may have about the night-time effects and the sound, Ishar 3 is one of the most absorbing and atmospheric adventures around.
Iris Murdoch, English novelist There are many characters to meet, plenty of beautifully created locations to explore and tonnes of puzzles to solve.
There are a massive 100 characters to make your team from, all having differing skills and personalities, Each has a character which can effect the action in the game. One may lie or another may have murderous tendencies, for example.
You'll need to choose your actions carefully. Say you wanted to assassinate a member of the party and another character has sympathies with the victim, he may then kill the murderer. This psychological aspect works well and provides much of the intrigue.
On your quest you will meet bad guys as well as the good. A tactical element has been added to the fight scenes and by means of a tacti-grid you can place the stronger characters in the front line for fighting.
The plots and sub plots in Ishar 3 are cleverly set around a series of time gates. These allow you to access other lands in the past or future. Past events can change the present and future and you’ll need to pick up key plot points found throughout the history of Ishar.
Inns play a vital part in the game and offer the opportunity to rest your team, eat. Listen out for information and to enrol new members. At the Inn you'll find some great animations with characters that will impart important information.
The plot in Ishar 3 focuses on the dea that Shandar's soul can come back in another form. This belief, known as reincarnation, says that the human spirit can still live again in another human, plant or animal. It is also referred to as transmigration or
• netempsychosis.
Many religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism nave this belief as a fundamental part of their religion. The Hindus, whose beliefs originated around 4,500 years ago, say that all living things are part of a divine life that transmute to one ‘orm or the other - sometimes a plant, an insect or human depending on its karma or past actions.
In typical RPG style, the use of spells is an essential and fun aspect of Ishar 3. There are about 30 spells to choose from, ranging from attack and defence spells to 'telepathic reconnaissance' and teleportation.
There is an unlimited game saving facility which, believe me, you will definitely need and also the facility to re-load teams from Ishar 1 and 2.
There is just so much to do in Ishar 3, apart from the overall objective, that your mind will be continually boggling over specific puzzles and problems.
Even for the most experienced role-players this will be a tough game to crack, promising lasting appeal.
This is a superb addition to the Ishar series and fans of the previous games will not be disappointed it really is a top quality, atmospheric adventure Silmarils have excelled once again in their atm to create, "the computer version of a Tolkien adverts* rich in dream-like images, colour, sound and plot.* Whave been waiting for this one ever since I saw the pulsating reviews that the PC version received and now it has arrived. Labelled by some as one of the most eagerly-awaited games ever, the pressure was on Bullfrog's business simulator to perform and do the err.
Business.
I'll admit to thinking that the game might have been hyped to oblivion and that it can't possibly be that good.
I should've really cast these thoughts aside because a casual glance at Bullfrog's back catalogue of software (Populous. Flood, Powermonger, Syndicate) should have put my don't have to wait until the end of the review to toll you just how good Theme Park is. It is bloomin' marvellous and I know that it'll be top of the software charts for a good long time to come.
The addition of a relatively cheap monorail If « good move in Theme Park, enabling your visitors to travel around in style On the surface it looks like a cutesy, OK kinda game, but underneath there is a startling, in-depth business strategy simulation that you can't fail to be im» pressed by.
Theme Park heralds a new era in computer games and it's an era I've been waiting a good few years for, You are now entering the Theme Park zooe. A world full uf over-inflated burger prices, coasters that roll and castles that bounce. Jonathan Maddock takes you around what must be the game of the year.
The sound in Theme Park is the vital part of atmosphere generation and thankfully Bullfrog has included it in abundance. Each ride has its own specific tune which plays when your mouse pointer wanders over it.
The tunes don't last forever though, which means you're not plagued by annoying music which starts off good and then gets monotonous.
The sound effects, of which there are many, seem to go by without you noticing them and it's quite hard to name a specific sound, but they are there. It's just that they add to the whole atmosphere of the game rather than just providing you with a second's entertainment.
The only other bit of sound is the introduction which features plenty of sampled speech and I guarantee that you won't fail to raise a grin by the time you see the roller coaster sequence. Buy the game to see what I'm on about!

The control system is clean, well-presented and the icons are designed, SO it's obvious just what you're clicking on. The static screens are also spot-on, the management deals over the table and the end sequence when your parks goes bankrupt are two prime examples.
The animation is smooth and everything flows nicely around the screen like it Should do. The little graphical touches such as the introduction of scenery (trees, stumps, fences, fountains) enable you to design a park which can be as picturesque as yOu want it to be.
There is graphically so much to Theme Park that I'd take up the whole maga zine talking about it. The best thing to do is just sit back in a comfy chair ana admire the screenshots.
Cute as hell and in quiet moments even the toughest male on the planet Has got a good chance of going "Ahhhh".
Theme Park can be played three ways. Your first choice should be the sandbox level which is aimed specifically at beginners. You can enjoy all the fun of the Theme Park without having to trouble yourself with the strains of dealing with the bank, plus you don't have to do any research and you'll never run out of stock for your shops.
The next level upwards is the sim level. Here you can do some research and also some negotiation screens pop up periodically where you have to barter over staff wages.
Only on Full level do you get to utilise all of Theme Park's options. You're personally responsible for every financial transaction and rival operators can have shares in your park.
Theme Park looks highly cutesy on the outside, but the game is so in-depth that every single thing you could possibly think of has been fully catered for.
Chips shops on your park have salt levels which can be decreased and increased. An increase will make your park visitors thirsty, so a few sign posts pointing towards your Pokey Cola shop can reap you big financial rewards.
Theme Park will take you an hour to master the controls, but you will spend weeks before you start to run a profitable business for any length of time.
The game is the first in Bullfrog's Designer Series.
The series is entirely made up of business simulations, which is where Bullfrog believe the future of computer games will lie.
The first theme park, Disneyijd opened in 195S in Anabed California. The park cert around Walt Disney's cartoon chg_ acters and covered approxim?J 74 acres. Walt Disney World covtfl a massive 27,000 acres and e opened in 1971 near Orlini Florida.
Walt Disney World n enhanced in 1982 thanks to **¦ introduction of the EPCOT ce which features displays of futiiq technology and re-creates histo*, cal landmarks.
Other Disney parks include Tokyo Disneyland and EuroD r*.
In France, which covers an a'tjl one-fifth the size of Paris. Than!
The USA, France and Japan cate'eal for, but Brits haven't got it so bad with 15 theme parks spread throughout the UK.
The three largest are AitoJ Towers in Staffordshire (opened ¦
1979) which attracts over 2 mili«J visitors annually, Thorpe Pa't
(1980) and Chessington World c* Adventure (1987), both of
wh* * are situated in Surrey.
Looking back throughout games' history, there isn't anything exactly like Theme Park, but there are few that come fairly close. The Populous series of games, also created by Bullfrog, virtually changed the software industry overnight and expanded game creators' thoughts past the platformer and the shoot-’em-up.
The idea was to create your own populous by flattening and raising land while battling with an opponent who had the exact same goal, via some help from natural disasters.
The actual laying down of houses and settlement is very much like the construction section in Theme Park, but that's where any similarity ends.
I can't even remember anything else remotely like Bullfrog's business simulator, but that just goes to prove that the game is a completely original product.
Theme Park is by far the best game I've played this year. Just as Populous arrived and changed the industry for the better, I think Theme Park is here now to give other software houses a good kick up the backside, just to show them what can be done on the Amiga.
It is a product of sheer high quality, is bound to sell by the truckload and it's all down to one simple and often forgotten thing. Originality. Theme Park, with its three simulation scales, will appeal to just about everyone. Via these scales you can make the simulation as in-depth as you want it to be.
The best thing about the game in my opinion is that it is a fun game to play.
You can't help but smile and have a good laugh while you're busy creating your park.
The only down point to Theme Park is that it is a tad slow on the lower grade Amigas. To get the best out of it you'll need some fastRAM or an accelerator, but that said it still plays well, upgrade or not.
The graphics are simply exquisite, the sound is excellent it is as playable as hell and more addictive than any drug. It oozes sheer class and everyone that has seen it has had nothing but praise for Bullfrog's business simulator.
I could enthuse about Theme Park all day, but I don't want to because right now I want to get back to my A1200 to continue constructing my park.
To quickly sum up. Theme Park is a quality title designed by a quality software developer, and if you decide not to buy this game it could well become one of the worst decisions your ever likely to make.

Jeremy Clarkson et al. In fact it's the latest race- em-up from
Gremlin that promises to be "the fastest ever Amiga racing
game," Released on the SNES to high critical acclaim and
receiving the glitzy award for the1993 Gamesplayer SNES Racing
Game of the Year, it has now been ported over to the Amiga.
INTRODUCTION Win enough money to upgrade your engine for some real speed This is the sort of thing nightmares are made of! Imagine a lawnmower sample for the roar of the engine, the nitros conveyed by the hum of a washing machine and the squeal of the breaks by the sound of a demented Hamster.
Bl ISTRBf BSIB ufbthfp timc This is about all you need to accurately recreate the sound in Top Gear 2 - it really is this dreadful.
The music option is quite a competent attempt but it is very tacky and mindnumbingly boring and repetitive after a while.
Take not* of the weather before you buy Don't collide with your opponents or it'll put you back a fair bit There are quite a few games that are rather like Top Gear 2. Many have taken on the formula of a sports car racing along the open road in various countries, with things getting difficult when bad weather occurs or there are obstacles on the track, Lotus, for instance, is similar both in looks and gameplay, with the typical rain and fog scenes, or the logs and barriers on the tracks.
Crazy Cars 3 is also quite similar, but the game The variable weather conditions keeps it interesting added interest with an extra element of betting wagers with rival racers and also the option to upgrade your car.
Top Gear 2 rates around average with games of a similar nature. It does introduce some sort of tactical element With the upgrades you can buy for your car, and you'll need to decide when and what to spend your race winnings on.
Check the weather report to see whether you should replace your tyres with better versions adapted for wet or dry conditions, or spend your cash on improving nitros for better speed ups.
Top Gear 2 does look rather similar to mai other games of this nature with the obli tory rain scenes, fog, night and city skyscr.
Ers, but it has been done to a high stand, and looks good.
: d ICO- I !W 3*1 vhe- : ! Fi'fl The actual car itself seems to hover uncorv ] vincingly above the track and the rear view the car is relatively unimpressive even wl the nitros are activated, with a feeble effect appearing out of the exhausts.
The apparent "cut and paste" job on scenery also spoils things quite a lot. While el is a nice idea illustrating the background wnfl significant landmarks of a country, it becomes!
So obvious that the scenery has been continul ally repeated that it looks unconvincing.
In fact it becomes quite laughable as yoJ count how many Sydney opera houses yod pass, or how many Pyramids and the like.
Car racing has always held wide appeal, both with participators and spectators alike. It has taken on many different forms from Stock Car Racing to Formula One Grand Prix - the first organised race being from Paris to Rouen in 1894.
There are many circuits that have been built for the purpose such as SilVERSIONe and Nurbur- gring, along with street circuits including Monte Carlo and Monaco.
Many racing drivers have become household names through their profession - Graham Hill, Stirling Moss and Jackie Stewart all finding fame through this means.
Motor racing is not without its dangers though - even for the spectators. One of the worst ever motor racing disaster was at Le Mans race-track when 80 people were killed when three cars collided at 150mph, crashing into the spectators stand.
Tina Hackett plays girl racer for the day :i take a look at Gremlin’s Top Gear 2... S MB HOT A ell. Having never driven a high-powered super sports car (any offers?), it un only be left to the imagination how close to the real thing this is.
Unfortunately the control method certainly doesn't do a great deal to nhance realism and the steering isn't all that responsive, constantly
• minding you that you are just using a joystick and controlling
a graphic an the screen.
Fog makes driving conditions treacherous BHD The game does create the speed of the car well and you do actually
- ove along at a fair old pace.
The sound effects are adequate, but they don't create the nail-biting vision that these games should and don't sound all that convincing.
Also you are blessed with a rubber car, in the sense that even when
* ou crash at full speed into a concrete wall you'll still bounce
right off ain with no harm done.
Great for prolonging the race but hardly realistic - I mean whatever
• appened to those impressive explosions that kept things
exciting?
What I'm trying to say is you don't really get absorbed into the action ft with some racing games and somehow the excitement isn't there.
ere are a few things that worry me about this ;3me. While on the surface the game plays fairly and everything chugs along quite acceptably,
- ere are things that let it down, For instance, gameplay is
distracted by these sup- : :sedly 'hip*' phrases interrupting
the proceedings.
Overtake a car, for example, and a bubble of ¦seech will appear reading “Yo, eat my dust", "Crash 'n' burn" and other equally irritating erases.
And another point to note; all your opponents seem to comprise of the role-model drivers who never put a foot wrong, who never crash into barriers and if you should collide - well, it's you that gets put back a few seconds while they speed off in to the horizon.
No chance for any foul play, no scraping together of paintwork and no mad scramble to overtake - removing tonnes of potential fun! It's not all bad by any means. In fact it is a very playable game with plenty of different tracks - 64 Cities in 16 countries - to test your skills. And it is a very, very fast game, especially on a one-player mode.
A two-player game is the usual split-screen affair and is great fun, but unfortunately you can't easily tell who your opponent is from the many other cars of the same colour.
The sound and graphics let the game down a little and it doesn’t seem to have all that much to it.
Around five years ago it would have been received with more enthusiasm but now it is a little old hat.
If you're a fan of racing games and you have to have another, it is worth a look. It does play fairly well, it's just not particularly original now open late night Wednesday | k Thursday L *ill 7.30pm .OPEN SUNDAY I I AM TO 4PM F I RSTCOMPUTER CENTRE (LEEDS)Tel:0532 319444 modem: OPEN 7 DAY'S A WEEK OPEN MON - SAT 9.30AM-5.30PM SUNDAY OPENING..

On The Ball aims to set that straight offering up to four players and involving a detailed journey through the qualifying stages to the world cup finals.
It also features what the programmers describe as "Spectacular animated TV-style coverage" of the games, so that you can see your players in action and curse as they miss easy chances or concede disappointing last-gasp equalisers.
After the game you'll have to deal with the media, who will either tear you to shreds or hail you as a national hero. It's your task to make sure that your name is in the headlines for all the right reasons.
Taylor failed, but can you succeed? Dave Cusick tries to lead England to international glory in Ascon’s foray into the football management genre The Ball: World Cup Edition Located on the desk in your office is a compact disc player, which you can use to select one of two tunes which tinkle away in the background during the off-the- field sections.
Both tunes are passable but not particularly aweinspiring, and to be honest you may well be tempted to turn down the volume and stick some decent music on in the background while you play.
During the game, moments of drama are usually accompanied by suitable crowd sound effects. The closest you'll come to chants are the occasional “Eng-er-land" style messages which are interspersed with the commentary. But that doesn't matter too much because you'll be paying far more attention to the events on screen anyway.
I25HI1 i Without a doubt the two top managerial games are Gremlin's Premier Manager 2 and Domark's Championship Manager 94 Premier Manager opts for a fast and friendly approach, where you are given the task of taking over a humble conference team and making your way into the top flight of professional football.
Championship Manager is probably the most detailed game of its type ever conceived, boasting unparalleled attention to detail. It I remains my personal favourite I because you can immerse yourself I in it for hours.
On The Ball tries to break the I mould in several areas, not only in I its use of the numerous in-game I action sequences, but also in opting for a much less text-based I approach than its rivals.
There are far fewer player statis- I tics than in Championship I Manager, as a system of assigning I traits or characteristics such as I "Goal poacher" to some players is I employed which works well.
Facing the press is fine after a win, but if the result hasn't gone your way you could be in for a grilling .*» thout ever actually having been an international football manager. I'm not
- •ally in the position to say whether or not On The Ball
accurately reflects the ta -to-day life of such a character.
However, it does seem to include every aspect :• the job, both
on the field and off.
I can’t think of another management game in which you get to plan out your : ayer's days in this amount of detail, or where all manner of actions from
• '‘¦dorsing products to imposing sex bans on the squad can be
carried out.
The game sections themselves usually seem to reflect reality to some extent, itnough after a while you do become used to certain animations and as a result jn predict goals before they are actually scored.
This doesn't really detract from the excitement however. You'll still have your
* art in your mouth during penalties or free kicks from critical
edge-of-box positions.
Few management games are as visually pleasing as On The Ball.
The programmers have clearly poured a lot of time and effort into creating a realistic and stylish game throughout, and the graphics certainly go a long way towards capturing the correct mood.
The feel of every situation, from the quiet solitude of your hotel room office to the intense glare of a post-game press conference, is captured perfectly by the atmospheric visuals.
For most of the game you'll be looking at these beautifully drawn static screens, but where the action really comes alive is during training sessions and matches.
Here your players perform for you in a range of animated sequences. Despite the size of the players on the screen, these sequences are generally smooth and will certainly impress initially.
Of course, whether you’ll still be so keen on them after you've had the game a few weeks remains to be seen, because it doesn't seem possible to skip these animations.
Wednesday 13th October 1993 was the night on which football fans the whole nation over watched their national team miss the world cup boat. This was all the more shocking and disappointing, coming as it did only three years after a heartbreaking and indeed quite unlucky semi-final loss to the eventual winners of the 1990 World Cup, Germany.
Many fans agreed that had England beaten Germany in that fateful penalty shoot-out, they would have been able to beat Argentina in the final and lift the cup for a second time. But in the three years since England's second-finest hour, much had changed.
After two impressive World Cup campaigns, Bobby Robson decided to return to club management. The FA appointed Graham Taylor, whose club credentials were impeccable With players such as Bryan Robson and Peter Shilton at the end of their international careers, Taylor decided the time was right for wholesale changes and took several controversial decisions, such as dropping Chris Waddle and Peter Beardsley.
He seemed unable to translate his club success to the international arena and adopted an alarming habit of playing men in roles other than their natural positions.
After playing On The Ball, you will either feel an affinity with Taylor - perhaps he faced an impossible task - or have an ever lower opinion of him than when you started. This could largely depend on which difficulty level you play at.
After failing to qualify for USA 94, Taylor resigned as England Manager. His three year tenure had been an often stormy voyage through the footballing ocean, and few were sorry to see him go in the end.
Now Wolves fans will be hoping he can find his earlier club management success. He shall be remembered as the man who not only managed England’s way out of the World Cup, but also for the improper use of the English language that brought him notoriety through the medium of national television.
Indeed, that now immortal phrase which is adorning Fantasy Football League T-shirts the whole country over, accurately sums up for me the whole of Graham Taylor's international career: "Do I not like that?"
Accomplished and enjoyable though it is. On The Ball: World Cup Edition still only simulates the qualifiers and finals of the World Cup.
International management is interesting enough, but for many there simply won't be enough involvement with the players on the almost personal level, such as that which can develop during extended sessions playing Championship Manager, To be honest I can't help but feel that domestic league and cup competitions work better in a computer game. Also, something is definitely lost through the use of fictitious player names.
However, there is still plenty of depth; taking one of the footballing minnows to the finals is a real challenge on the higher difficulty settings.
You'll need a hard drive for the A1200 version.
Although the A500 version won’t call for one. Ascon say this is due to the improved graphics on the aga machines.
On The Ball is a good game by anybody's standards, but for me it still doesn't quite top the league It's more a sort of Newcastle United, providing plenty of entertainment, but not quite able to catch the Blackburn and Manchester United o4 Premier Manager and Championship Manage' respectively.
Wo years ago a game arrived on the Amiga games scene that redefined the parameters of the platform games character. Putty was its name and it was received well by press and gamesplayers alike. With scores that didn't go below 90%. Putty was a breath of fresh air in the dull genre of platformers.
System 3, responsible for such quality pieces of software as Myth, created Putty, a character who was able to stretch and morph his (her?)
Way to computer game success, There was so much more that you could do with your flexible friend that it was quite unlike any other Putty uses his powers of pliability to reach one of those important stars which further enhance his abilities platformer on the market, Even though the idea was highly origin* Putty also shone brighter in the graphics « sound departments than anything that h*- gone before it.
The sound effects such as carrots shoutm "Uxi 9mm" played a major part in the gam* success by making it far more entertains and dare I say it, more fun than a lot of it I competitors.
We re now heading towards the end of 19S- and System 3 are back with a vengeance. Tk sequel to their platform star of 1992, Put’ Squad is about to hit the shop shelves and looks bigger and better than its predecessor.
I fear the world is about to go Putty ro* once more.
Putty calif upon the powers of his atrship to help him get rid of his opponent who is secure in a bunker Sonically, Putty Squad is a notch above the rest. The musical tune which runs throughout isn't too loud and although it sounds rather nifty, the volume is set at this level for one reason. The musical stars are. Of course, the humourous sound samples which pop up every few seconds.
Almost every character within the game has their own select sound. From when the Putty shouts when he collects one of his mates to the end laughter when you fail after losing all your lives, every sound, err, sounds great and I can do nothing but applaud the music maestro who put it all together.
Just the introduction of these select samples makes the game more fun to play, inducing you to search out new characters just to see what they say.
Perhaps the best use of the sound sample is when you pick up the musical note icon. Sitting behind a pair of decks, the DJ promptly appears and spins an outrageous scratch-filled hip-hop record.
Immediately, all the enemies stop doing whatever they were doing and start to dance their socks off for a good 20 seconds, allowing Putty to go about his business untroubled. A nice touch of the highest quality.
¥m¥ HSEuI "ie aim of Putty Squad is to rescue all your plasticine chums who are being held prisoners of war by t** evil cat tribe. Along the way through your missions there are several objects which can be picked .o Pick up ten stars and Putty will gain a more powerful punch, 20 will give you arrows to fire, while 30 will give Putty an electric finger to zap his enemies with.
Other goodies include food to top up your health, springs to reach those hard, err, out-of-reach : aces and jars of nitro-glycerine which enable Putty to make bombs which will cause as much destruction as possible The smell of plasticine is in the air. What else could it be? System 3 hits the stretchy platform trail once more and Jonathan Maddock is nothing but putty in their hands... and slowly get a lot tougher - even dedicated platform heroes might have a few problems later on.
Thankfully the development team have put an ever-so useful level password option into the game. The only problem is that Putty Squad is for the A1200 only, so A500 owners are going to miss out, but they should move with the times and get themselves a new machine because games like this are slowly becoming more commonplace.
The control method, considering just what Putty can do.
Is very easy to use and becomes second nature to you afte' only a couple of goes. It is extremely addictive and i put hand on heart and recommend it to everyone. Dte- yd platform freaks and Putty fans are going to love t to death.
85% e s s JEEii As you might expect, Putty Squad contains some of the best cartoon graphics you’ve seen in a long time. The variety of characters and the sheer quality of these finely sculptured pixels can't fail to impress even the most platform-hating gamesplayer.
The characters range from new stars such as bulbous toads and menancing magicans to Indian rubber men. The game doesn't forget old favourites such as the rampant rocket men and the maniac gun-toting carrot, who incidently has changed his catchphrase to "achtung!".
The backgrounds have also been improved upon, mainly due to the fact that the Putty Squad development team have now got access to AGA technology.
The location of the game seems to be set in and around the far east with Buddahs dotted around the Arab esque landscape.
The actual Putty character isn't that much different from the one that appeared in the first System 3 plat- former, but I guess he doesn't need to be vastly improved, simply because the game creators did it so well first time around.
The blue blob can still squash himself to the ground for protection, stretch into the air to collect objects, form a fist to whack the enemy and can encase morph into a baddie and take control of him.
The animation is spot on and the smoothness by which the star of the game jumps and squishes around the screen is very impressive.
2 ft I I s 5 111 ifii in & s Using the helpful airship.
Putty rescues yet another MIA, but watch out II for those pesky rocket men Im when you come back down to solid ground I have nothing but praise for John Twiddy, the programmer of Putty Squad, because once again he has produced another quality piece of software. The graphics are beautiful and the animation is excellent, especially on the main character.
The sound adds a lot to the game, giving the player a lot of laughs as he she makes his her way through the various levels. The various missions start off easy jomp GOLD AWARD ANOTHER On sale 29 September if* M r pcy *rjps'Tirks 1*1 HVI n 5.non CHUM I r. ISI19!.

O-called interactive cartoons really got off on the wrong foot with the infamous Don Bluth Dragon's Lair games. Admittedly, the animation was nothing short of stunning, but once past the initial phase of drooling in wonderment, the astute gamer noticed a distinct absence of anything even approaching gameplay.
Fortunately, over the last year or two many companies seem to have got the message and as a result, sprawling CD-based adventure games on the PC have increasingly combined superb graphics and animation with brain-taxing puzzles. The end result has been a succession of INTRODUCTION “Stunning animation maketh not a great game”, a some wise soul once said. Gremlin’s latest could change all that, as Dave Cusick ha just discoverec smash-hits with gameplay to match the visuals.
Making good use of the huge storage capacity of a CD, Gremlin's Litil Divil promises amazing cartoon-like action and a lasting adventure challenge. Can it deliver?
A bunch of skeletons inhabit this ranch, although I don't like the look of that bull thing!
A typically perplexing puzzle, if Mutt isn't careful he could end up in the void Obviously a reasonable proportion of the CD storage space has been giver | over to providing a decent soundtrack to accompany the action.
While you are romping gaily around the Labyrinth, a selection of tunes I ranging from cartoony themes to all-action blockbuster movie-type things J are pounding away. At times it sounds like a whole orchestra is packec | inside the monitor, and the music always fits the scene perfectly.
Our hero Mutt’S large repertoire of moves have appropriate samplec ] sound effects, many of which are guite humourous.
Predictably, Mutt has drawn the short straw in this rather critical draw and as a result will have to attempt to complete this seemingly impossible task.
Nobody really holds out a hope for him, except his trainer Vice Alderman Muzzle, because the task has yet to be completed. Still, everybody's thoughts will be with him, if only because they'd really enjoy a piece of that pizza. If possible, his fellow litil divils would also greatly appreciate it if he could get extra anchovies.
Mutt's quest takes the form of wandering around the maze-like corridors of the labyrinth, entering rooms where he must complete tasks to progress further into the game.
Mutt Divil is a highly ranked amateur sleeper with aspirations of becoming a professional in the near future* Annoyingly he's had to attend the annual Grand Council meeting in the Chamber of the Ancients. It might be the only thing that ever happens in the Underworld, but he'd still rather be elsewhere, sleeping.
The Council are meeting to decide who will be chosen to go forth into the Overworld, through the Labyrinth of Chaos, to retrieve the Mystic Pizza of Plenty, Unfortunately, and also fairly f if s u “ .. r « n I S-“ I ma &
- r-r"C- iton Luckily Gremlin saw fit to think about the
gamesplayer when producing this piece of software, because for
once there's actually sufficient depth and addictiveness
present to support the excellent presentation.
Interaction is not limited to simply pushing the joypad in a certain direction at a certain moment. Mutt can perform all manner of tasks, from treading on Spidery things to leaping across pits using a combination of buttons and the directional pad.
Your main problem may in fact be deciphering exactly which button does what, since in different rooms their functions are often totally different.
As a result, whenever you enter a new location it is wise to quickly experiment so that you do not become caught in a tricky situation with no idea which buttons to press.
Admittedly there are situations where you will be left with no idea what to do, and there are rooms which cannot actually be completed until you possess certain items, either through picking them up or obtaining them from the store.
If you don't have an item, it may not actually be obvious that you need it, so you could find yourself perplexed as to how to deal with the room.
Still, unless you've failed in a room several times, in which case Mutt will automatically leave the location in disgust, it's always you who's in control and you don’t feel Simply like a spectator called on only rarely to make some decision.
If interactive cartoons are to succeed then they will have to take a leaf out of Litil Divil's book.
Divil. CD32 Well, since the CD32 itself is still a relative newcomer, there have not really been many games on this platform that Amf&fr GOLD AWAKD Ill Let's get straight to the point. Litil Divil looks wonderful- The backgrounds are moody and atmospheric, with the puzzle rooms in particular being beautifully drawn and boasting lots of colour.
The Mutt sprite moves excellently and behaves realistically throughout.
His range of actions is huge, yet he always moves fluently. He will often amuse thanks to some imaginative and cartoon-like animation.
In short, this is one of the best looking games in a long time. True, the actual corridors of the Labyrinth are a little dull and very similar to one another, but this doesn't really detract from the overall effect.
They add to the interest because they make finding your way around the maze all the more challenging when one hallway looks much like every other.
There's little doubt that Litil Divil is an entertaining title which looks and sounds almost like a proper cartoon. Initially it certainly impresses and to be honest it's hard to fault the presentation in any way.
It is that most rare of products on the CD32, a game which takes full advantage of the machine's capabilities and is not simply an Amiga port with additional music.
Five levels, none of which are easy, should be enough to last quite some time.
It's not the sort of game you would go back to once it has been completed, but then again I shouldn't think many people will finish it in a hurry anyway.
Gremlin should be congratulated. In Litil Divil they have borrowed the best elements of the currently popular PC CD-ROM adventures and have produced one of the best CD32 games yet. It might not be the sort of thing you will want to play for hours in a single sitting, but there's enough long-term interest to warrant its purchase and will provide plenty of fun.
And if Commodore are looking for a product which will show off the CD32 to prospective customers, then Litil Divil could be the ideal solution.
Litil Divil resembles. It would be unfair to group it in with the Don Bluth games on other formats because they really are grossly inferior. Litil Divil is the first of what is sure to become a successful genre on the CD32.
HJ] all oaks from little acorns grow", as they say, and although an old cliche, this certainly rings true in the case of Manchester-based software house, Ocean. The story begins with the tale of two entrepreneurs with a vision, a vision 10 move into an emerging market of home entertainment.
And the rest is history, but it was obviously a decision that has paid off for the two entrepreneurs, Chairman, David Ward and Managing Director, Jon Woods, as they lead Ocean Software into its second decade, Starting in 1983 with only four staff, it has now grown into one of the largest independent software houses in the World. In 1987 they expanded into the French market, setting up Ocean France on the 00000 outskirts of Paris, and only two years later their rapid development was increased further still with the setting up of Ocean US in San Jose, California, Ocean’s foresight into the
industry meant that they pushed the market forward in areas such as licensed games, and the release of their budget label, 'Hit Squad', in 1989 opened another market for budget software which as well as the top Ocean titles, also includes products from the likes of Electronic Arts, Domark, Accolade and Virgin, RELEASES In 1983 Ocean licensed its first coinoperated game and two years later they released their first movie-based game - a move which has led to the company being renowned for its licensed titles, including licenses from seven of the largest eight Hollywood studios.
Ocean now has titles licensed by big names such as ’Rambo', 'The Terminator', 'Batman' 'The Addams Family’ and more recently, the industry's first million dollar license when they signed to produce 'Jurassic Park'.
As well as its film licenses, Ocean signed advertising tie-ins including that with Walkers Crisps and Quavers, resulting in their platformers Pushover and One Step Beyond.
Ocean has also incorporated the charity aspect into the games with the release of Sleepwalker, which used the voice of comedian Lenny Henry, and raised a considerable sum for Comic Relief.
The company has employed the talents of pop giants such as Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Utah Saints and Alien Sex Fiend in their releases.
Utah Saints worked on their track 'I want you', for Ocean ID's game.
Burning Rubber, while Nik and Mrs Fiend (Alien Sex Fiend) composed the sound track for Inferno.
Ocean’s development centre in Manchester has over 100 specialists on site, with another 25 in San Jose, and also have top name developers such as
D. I.D. working for them.
As well as the Amiga, Ocean has produced software for many other platforms including those by Sinclair, Atari, and Amstrad, along with the IBM compatible PC.
So next time you're considering the merits of what Manchester has to offer while supping your Boddingtons and watching Coronation Street, think that in the unlikely setting of a large city in the North West of England is one of Europe's top software houses.

Riginality is not usually a thing synonymous with computer games these days, so when Millennium announced that they intended to bring out a game based on a true story it was met mth a mixture of cynicism and hope!
But on hearing the tale behind the game, it’s not hard to see why Millennium saw potential in a story that makes reality seem like fantasy.
The game is Myster X. the story is of four martial arts champs who cycle around 4000 miles across the states, sparring in various towns. And talking to the team leader and the man who originally came up with the idea for the game, it's obvious that this release is going to be more than a bit special.
A man highly suited to his current role supervising a martial arts sim, 29- year old Neil Axe has spent around 20 years training in the arts and has an extensive and most impressive list of achievements in this field.
Starting at the age of five, under the tuition of his father, Neil learnt a Karate*based style of self-defence.
Moving on to various other forms of oriental disciplines including Kick Boxing, Wing Chun Kung Fu and Atemi Jutsu Karate, Neil became somewhat of a champion in his chosen sport.
In 1988 Neil came up with the idea of the cycling expedition. A team, led by him, would cycle the distance, sparring in towns along the way, ending the journey with a huge tournament.
RITUAL Originally it was intended that Neil and the rest of the team, Julian Carlino, Graham Cradle, and Michael Graham, would travel along the Great Wall of China, a ritual which goes back to the ancient martial artists, but restrictions with the authorities meant that they money as they went along, they hac i give out an address for it to be sent i which, as you can imagine, isn't nearly, effective.
At first it was intended that the wha team would cycle the entire distann but Julian began to suffer with his ba leg. A van was hired, leaving the teas severely strapped for cash, with only Si a day between them.
A new plan was decided. They woj all alternate between driving, naviga ing, sleeping and cycling except wre the temperatures became too low i night. This way one person would a cycling at all times. And as if all the ply Master Axe - The system q D Last month wc looked at Millennium’s forthcoming game based around the true story of four martial arts experts. This week Tina Hackett talks to the inspiration behind the game, Neil Axe.
The mowt are going to be as authentic as possible and Neil has worked closely with Millenium to make sure it stays realistic genesis could not actually cycle along certain parts of the wall and it was called off only weeks before they were due to go.
Determined that all their intense training and 18 months preparation should not go to waste, K was suggested that the team should cycle across America instead, but this would almost double the distance meaning cycling nearly an extra 2000 miles.
Many, including medical experts, believed the guys from Bucks were mad to take on such a feat, especially as two of the team have health disabilities - Neil suffers nerve damage in his lower spine while Julian needs surgical braces to even walk properly.
Setting off from New York deliberately close to April Fools Day (everyone believing them to be fools), they began their arduous journey across the States to San Diego.
One of the purposes of the expedition, apart from the spiritual objective to find ones inner self, was to raise money for the Great Ormand Street hospital.
However, the fund raising aspect did not go as planned. Neil believes that some of the charities did not want to be associated with a sport that was of this nature.
And in America the charity side didn't fair much better. When over there they were informed that they couldn't open a bank account which they had planned to keep money raised in, and while publicity was good in one sense, it also meant that they were easily recognisable by gangs intending to roll them for the money.
The team had to be on their guard the whole time. Instead of collecting the Neil's studio is based in Aylesbury.
Bucks and houses the Axe Gar Kuin.
Which is the first full time martial arts centre to be funded by local government.
In 1989 the AGK academy played host to the International Martial Arts Goodwill Enterprises (IMAGE) Open Tournament and was attended by martial arts celebrities such as Ted Tabura and Peter Kwong (famous for his roles in The Golden Child and Big Trouble - Little China).
On the academy's embfe s Neil's motto, "Never in Ance' will you find honour" anc t is this belief that he inst s into his students and the attitude that although you can learn to defend yourself, the true art * to condition the mind ana focus on four aspects that must remain foremost in yo_* life. These are work, discipline, control and dedication.
Myster X is not about violence R is about these disciplines and aims t: give the player an insight into world of martial arts, rather tha- re usual approach of this genre to -ace the game as gory and blood th rst as possible.
It is certainly different to tafr to a real live computer sprite a-d * ; refreshing to hear of a gar-* *as more of an intelligent, as we- as re inal, approach. Look forwa*: t: game around November they're hoping will be made into a filrr Neil is very enthusiastic about the forthcoming game and describes it as a "Martial Arts simulation" rather than a beat-'em-up. Neil has spent a great deal of time with Millennium, making sure the moves in the game will Stick to those humanly possible - and if they're not realistic, they go.
The game will also incorporate the places they went to and some of the actual people they met. Millennium have taken these real characters, for example the policeman they saw on the trip, and spiced them up a bit!
As to the future and whether there are plans for any more trips, Neil points out that with all the current projects in production, time is restricted, especially considering the extensive training involved. But it's an experience he says he wouldn't have missed for the world and would consider undertaking again.
The cycle ride also led to an invitation for Neil to lead a team over to Las Vegas a year later for a prestigious tournament. The British team took many of the awards, including first place in a Heavyweight Sparring Men's Black Belt, to second and third in Men's Intermediate Sparring. Neil himself also received a "Spiritual Warrior" award for services to the martial arts.
STUDIO the journey was over. They completed the ride by crossing over into California on May 6th, 1988.
But the celebrations came to a tragic end when Kay Baxter, a close friend and girlfriend of their host, died in a car accident in which Neil was passenger.
This affected him immensely and although he only received minor injuries he suffered deep shock. Neil has dedicated the game and the script to her memory.
And it's this story of their epic journey that is making its way into a computer game. But why choose this medium of all means?
Well firstly, Neil sees the computer as the most modern way to convey such a tale, but it's not the only outlet for his story. On their return, Neil and Julian worked on a script that combines fact with some fiction which would fraternise with a black and actually threatened the team with death.
The hostile weather conditions they came across, such as the sand storms in the dessert made things even more difficult and despite trying to navigate the route from 7-11 stores, 32 days after their departure the team made it - agamst all the odds.
A month after the crew had set out al trauma of the journey wasn't enough to cope with, the route took

HERTS. EN8 7HQ stem rom across the crowded room I saw her. She was partially obscured by the throng of drooling admirers, but from the brief glimpses I could catch, I could see she was a stunner. I could barely wait to thrust the contents of my pocket into her inviting slot.
No, you haven't mistaken a steamy thriller for your copy of Amiga Computing and I apologise for lowering the tone of the whole magazine.
You’ve just been reliving my first encounter with one of the most enjoyable coin-ops ever created, Super Sprint. It inevitably spawned a computer conversion, and since then countless imitators have appeared, trying to recapture the high speed thrills and spills of that three-wheeled classic.
Team 17 themselves have already ventured into the overhead driving game genre with the stylish Overdrive. To be honest, this was probably the least well received of all Team 17's productions.
It seemed to lack a certain indefinable something, and it definitely missed a conventional non-modem-link two-player mode. All Terrain Racing, however, promises much more excitement with a whole host of impressive specifications.
It is being developed by a two man team with a successful pedigree. Jamie Woodhouse, responsible for the Wm****1* WfflfWm %% The cars themselves will feature many frames of animation so that they move smoothly and realistically at this promising new driving game QQQQQ s and then when he gets to the office takes a look his vehicle against some heiMor-leather drivers, Daw Cusick pits himself and coding, was previously involved in the production of Nitro and Qwak, Graphics are being created by Danny Burke, who worked on the visually stunning Body Blows games. It's being written using the
5NA5M 2 development system. With Deluxe Paint and Lightwave involved in the graphical production process.
This collaboration is perhaps a little unusual considering the pair live approximately two hundred miles apart. Danny lives in London while Jamie is from Yorkshire.
They telephone each other regularly to discuss the game's progress, but surprisingly they don't have modems for sending data to one another. Instead they survive using that tried and tested pre-information highway method of transferring files - sticking floppy disks in the post. Despite the physical distance between the two men. They both have similar hopes for the finished game. Although this is the first time that Jamie and Danny have worked together, Alan Bunker, media manager for Team 17, is equally confident that they will produce the goods.
"ATR is the next progressive step from Overdrive," he confidently proclaims. "The game runs smoothly in all directions, the speed is fast and the pick-ups and weapons work beautifully.
"ATR has been in development for six months, at which time the game has steadily taken shape. We h«r no doubt that ATR will be well received - in particu*r I the two-player mode is thrill-a-second stuff and re *i fun and frantic."
If one player drops too far behind the other, he'll gv dragged along but will incur a time penalty. The plays with the best time at the end of the race is the victor.
DEFINITIVE Indeed, the list of features which will be present * the finished product suggests that ATR could become the definitive game of its type.
In the one player game, five artificially intellii computer cars are involved in each race, and for clarity each car is coloured differently.
The player can upgrade his or her car in terms steering, tyres and acceleration and so on. There three standard types of vehicle on offer, each with r*n unique abilities and handling characteristics, from 1 -« four wheel drive truck thingy to the nippy space- I car.
There are 36 different tracks in the circuit race mode
• one, in six different types of terrain including forest, odcy
canyons and even space. Tracks include such haz- r'ds as
bridges, tunnels, ramps, jumps, moving barriers rd short cuts,
to name but a few.
Various collectable bonuses are littered around the ~ack which improve traction or top speed, or arm your «hide with weapons such as homing missiles so that
• on can quickly dispose of troublesome adversaries in a .-nilar
manner to that of the aging SuperCars games.
Jamie says that: "with ATR, I want to make it so you oentify with what's on screen. You know - if you have i rocky track, you feel as if the car's going over rocks; if rs a snowy track, you're losing control of the car."
He's promising the sort of interaction that he feels
• as the missing ingredient in Overdrive. Danny agrees: "JVe want
to make it feel as if you're actually on the rack."
Danny and Jamie intend to include everything that ould be hoped for in a driving game. Adds Danny: "I :yi't want to look back at the game and realise what
• « could have put in."
Modestly described in the press release as "the rowling beast we've all been waiting for", ATR looks « though it will reach the usual high standards of Team 17 software, being polished and playable in the extreme.
To experience ATR you'll need a 1 Meg machine, but Jamie and Danny are confident that even on an A500 the game will be smooth and slick.
It's due out in October, with an enhanced A1200 version promised for release in November which may include graphical enhancements such as parallax scrolling. A CD32 version is also in the pipeline. Wt r will no doubt feature an animated introduct on sequence of some description, along with an improved soundtrack.
If it can match Skidmarks and other such trtfes terms of sheer addictiveness, then there's no oo-ct that Team 17 will have yet another highly s-:ces *.

+IjY§t6m* nm Out to Lunch French stereotypes a-plenty as top chef, Pierre goes on the trail of his missing ingredients. He's one vegetable short of a casserole, so to speak, and you have to guide Pierre around the six different countries and recover his escaped edibles.
Making life difficult is Le Chef Noir, Pierre's arch-rival, and he will do everything he can to release all the food you have managed to capture.
And what else must every good chef watch out for? Why, bacteria, of course! Bacteria and insects will try and infect the food, so you must stop them before they reach and. Rot your farm fresh consumables.
JLiim To help you there are collectibles that will prove more than valuable. The most essential of these is the net that you use to capture the food in to carry them to the cage.
A minimum number of ingredients must be collected to reach the next level in a given time limit.
This time limit really does add some e*: ment (and frustration) to what is simply a ordinary, though very competent platformer The bonus level provides some variety takes the form of Pierre wandering around supermarket collecting fruit, but it isn't all m spectacular or imaginative by any means.

, GOLD Banshee i AWARD Fancy being a super hero? Then take the part of Sven Svardensvart and v $ save the Styx Empire from bad guy Blardax Maldrear. With only your trusty flying machine, the 'Banshee', you have to stop Maldrear from taking over the world.
Courtesy of Core Design, you can now get this shoot-'em-up of the century for the CD32. Scoring a deserved 89% (AMC76) for the A1200 version, it has now been ported over for all CD32 blood fest fans to get their mitts on.
It's a vertical shoot-'em-up and although there is nothing particularly new about it this is a prime example of the genre.
The scenario changes frequently, flying across different terrains and meeting increasingly challenging enemies. As ace pilot of this power-propped plane, you must blast the enemies and avoid their bullets.
And ok, so maybe it's not the most politically correct of games but after all that is all it is... a game. However, if you're the type who finds blasting people to bits a little sick, whether in a comical style or not then steer clear - though you'd be missing out on one brilliant title.
The two-player mode is a nice touch and you get the choice whether to split the power-ups or not - ideal if your friend is the bonus-hogging type! The three levels of difficulty also add to the challenge.
Graphically it is amazing. It's viewed from a top-down perspective with the ground below constantly changing to many different landscapes. One minute you're flying across the deep blue ocean, the next the Arctic Wastes. Most of the time you are rather pre-occupied with blasting baddies but when you do actually spot all the little details, you realise how wonderful the graphics really are.
This is a terrific title loaded with atmosphere, packed full of objectives to complete and millions of baddies to kill. Sound effects add realism and all the bombing going off left right and centre makes for a real feast of pure shoot-'em-up heaven.

And then there are the directors (1st 2nd.
3rd etc), the producers), and other occasional extra technicians and artistes brought in to cany out specific tasks.
All these people have to be in the right place at the right time, and ready to go when required, They have to be fed and watered, codec facilities and transport to and from the location have to be provided as necessary AM this takes organisation and planning, evenonaday-todaybasis. Every member of the forthcoming day's shoot will receive a Call Sheet at the end of the ci rent da s shooong which details such things as how to get to tomorrow's locaoon(s), where to park, what time the various cast and crew need to be on set when the sun rises and sets, essential telephone numbers, which scenes
are to be shot and where, and a selection of other pertinent data DETHIL Now. I'm not suggesting that planning your shoot necessarily needs this amount of detail - it all depends on the nature of the beast and how far you feel like taking it But how do you start your plannmg and organising?
Let s take the example of a wedding video The bride s family fwho are paying for the shoot) have already told you the date, times and locations of the wedding and recepoon.
If you're smart you! Start to wonder about such things as lighting levels, power supplies, camera angles and sound problems at each of the various locations you'll be visiting - which will probably also include attending the bnde before she leaves for the ceremony, shooting the wedding through to the reception and the couple s eventual departure, You'll need to check out each of the locations in advance if possible, and talk to their owners to ensure that its OK to film, and that you can drape your various bits of production gear around the place.
Essential things to consider include such seemingly trivial items as where to park (so that you don’t have to lug heavy equipment too for while rushing to the church), what the weather forecast for the happy day might be and how you II cope if it does rain.
When you go to each location, try to get an idea of how the place wil be laid out on the day you video the wedding - where the happy couple will take their vows, how they will enter • and leave, and where you'll need to place The nitty gritty There are certain specifics that you'll need to consider carefuly. Will the camera need a tripod or will you be going hand-hekf? Will you need a tripod and dolly to get any tracking shots?
Can you light the location successfully while keeping the atmosphere natural and informal? Will you need to dose-mic the mam action because of excessive traffic, aircraft, children or animal noise?
How long do you need to set up in each location? Will a second camera help secure those hard-to-get cutaways and establishing shots while the main action is being filmed.
Live events don t usually offer much leeway for making mistakes Amiga Computing © ti n this age of instant everything - instant mash. Instant porridge, mstant satisfaction and Instant results - It's very tempting to forget ne pfonrvng and jl St do it.
After all videotape is cheap, and you can afcvays cobble something together from .-.natever it is youve shot right? Well. No. M iaa The ts almost always entirely the wrong approach.
A good video production requires ptanmg.
Strategy and organisation If you're one of those haphazard folks who just turns up with a camcorder and starts hosepiping away at afl and sundry, read on. If you're not read on anyway, you rT»ght leam something.
The impetus for a successful shoot often begins in the planning stages It s during this time that potential problems can be identified and. Hopefully, solved, that shooting schedules are drawn up. Storyboards consulted and all the loose ends drawn in before the expensive shooting actually takes place.
You might thmk that such planning is only, necessary on big budget productions such as feature films and TV dramas, but you'd be wrong.
Every type of production, from holiday videos, weddings and birthdays to animation, commercials and features all need some degree of planrwig.
Obviously, the simpler the job. The simpler the planning but nevertheless, planning 8 an essential part of a video production, large or small Have I got the message across yet?
Planning is important ok?
How much planning you need to do depends on the production itself For instance, if you're doing a home video for your child's birthday party then you should already be familiar with the layout of the location, where the best camera positions m*jht be how much light will be available at the time of day you wrfl be shooong and where the power sockets, etc. are.
But most of the time you won't have a clue until you ve been and eyeballed the gaff for yourself Full-scale film and TV production puts great emphasis on planning and organisation - they have to because such large projects commonly cost megabucks and invofve many people and places Besides the talent |actors, actresses etc) there will be a substantial technical crew who handle everything from trie camera and its accessories, the lighting, set dressing and Plannin Idith Mour eHpertise in uideoing gou'ue been ashg to film the 'big dag'.

Unless you have the time - and an understanding minister - it is extremely unlikely that you'll get a
second chance if you miss something important.
There's probably not much chance of getting the happy couple to go through the missing bits again, so you have to be on your toes right from the start, and to do this your planning and organisation will need to be almost military in its precision.
Of course, there will always be times when all your planning falls apart but if you're clever, and nimble-mindcd. You II be able to go with the flow and keep shooting, unphased by some unexpected departure from the schedule.
If you remember that Murphy's Law states that Everything that can go wrong, will' then you should be prepared for anything.

I H I Adding panache
o spruce up your original Tutorial! Text we shall start by using
more than one font. We ll alter the credits so that the Job of
each person is in one font and their name is in another.
To do this, use the Edit Text screen's Control Panel. When you initially enter the Edit Text screen the Control Panel is invisible, so click the right mouse button and it will appear in the top right of the screen Clicking the right mouse button again will remove it... and so on.
The purpose of the Control Panel is to let you access many of the Edit Text screen's keyboard functions with the mouse. You will see that the Control Panel is made up of a grid of buttons which can all be clicked on to achieve different functions.
For our purposes we will use the Control Panel to change the font used on all the names in our credits. To do this we must move the cursor to the first letter of the text we want to change This can be done by clicking on the arrow buttons in the Control Panel as they operate identically to the cursor keys. Use them now to move the cursor to the letter J in the name Joe Bloggs on the second line.
Now we will change the font. To do this with the mouse use the Font Selector which is accessed via the Control Codes camera c,! Joe Bloggs EJ : * Sound 1 Dave Smith Lights screen. To get to the Font Selector first dick on the button labelled CR.CD at the bottom left of the Control Panel.
This will take you into the Control Codes screen - more on this later. In the middle of the Control Codes screen on the left there is a button labelled Font Selector. Click on it and you will have made it into the Font Selector.
SELECimG The Font Selector allows you to see all the fonts currently available in memory and then select one for use. If you click on the down arrow at the bottom of the Font Selector you will be able to scroll through Camera Joe Bloggs Sound Dave Smith Lights Sarah Jones fliers ere fonts galore in differentstyles end sizes, suitable for every different QCQO&ML You can completely edit your text'e she, sheep and format with the Control Codet In the second part of our ScrollerB tutorial.
Steue tUhite eHplains horn m can add special effects to Mour teHt creations © which key combination is required to access it is also shown To finish, dick on the button labelled Ent at the top right of the screen.
Scrolled will then go back to the Edit Text screen where you should see rhat all the text after and including the J in Joe Bloggs has been changed to the font you all the fonts. You should see that the Rich60 font is highlighted as it iS the font currently in use. For the names in the credits we'll use Compact64 which is near the bottom of the list though you can use any other font you like.
To select a font click on it and it will become highlighted. Information about You can view all your Control Codes by simply pressing the Ctrl hey.

Codes that will allect your text In different ways Let it roll
Now we've fixed up the text let's make the credits roll up the
screen until they get to the Director's credit where, in
time-honoured fashion, we will pause the text so that Director
- Stella Adams stops midway up the screen and stays there for
several seconds before finally disappearing.
The first part of this is relatively simple. Instead of pressing 0 to halt the scroll (as we did in Tutoriail) we can enter a Pause Code. Add four blank lines after Stella Adams by pressing return four times. Press Ctrl to make the Control Codes visible, press F4 to get to the Control Codes screen and then select the Pause 10 code fthat's the box with a small clock in it and the number 10).
You may want to use the cursor keys to scroll dowr the character set in order to access the Control Codes.
When you are returned back to the Edit Text screer you should see the new Pause Code added at the bottoir of the screen.
Press Esc to return to the main menu and then FI to test progress so far. The credits should scroll up and ther pause for a moment when they reach the Director i credit. We can now add some better special effects.
Re-enter the Edit Text screen and make sure that the Control Codes are visible. Move the cursor to just after the Pause Code, open the Control Codes screen and select the first Fade Down symbol (a large arrow pointing downwards in a box) and return to the mair t uI a hi a • to 5crollers Click on preset colour to select Select disk drive by clicking on symbols WU.OW | MORI COLOUR BOX nsur i ViOCO CUDtlMIWS 1 BOX Oil PRESS RETUIN TO SET fltt MAIN MENU pSjf Scroller Guide Part 2 nr* | euw | cvan | *awq j wathi ?

We may call upon H in the next issue just selected. As with most of the layout Junctions in Scrolled, any change affects ad the text from the current cursor position :nwards The reason for this lies within tne dark mystery that is the concept of Scroiler2.
Press the Ctrl key on your keyboard and you should see the letters CC appear next to :ne percentage figure in the top left corner of the screen. The CC tells you that the Control Codes will be made visible.
Looking through your text yOu should see rat lots of little boxes which contain symbols have appeared throughout your tea. For example, the first lines should look we those on the screenshot.
I" The little boxes and symbols ate called Add the extra codes now and view the results. The extra codes that you have just added probably seem totally illogical. However, there is a good reason for them.
When Scroller2 gets to the end of your title it automatically resets things like font, colour and justification to its defaults. One of the other things that is reset is the fade condition - if it were not reset and you did a looping title that ended with a fade down, you would only be able to see anything the first time through. This is because the text would still be faded down.
And that's it. In next month's issue we will be providing a reference for Scroller2 and some useful hints and tips.
Play the scroll with FI and this time you should see toe Director credit first pause and then fade away. Vou siiould also see it re-appear again a moment later and continue scrolling. This is obviously not right, so we must sake a couple more additions before we are actually tone.
To correct this final problem we need to add two more Control Codes after the Fade Down code. The first is mother Pause Code - this time Pause Code 2 - and then
• e need to issue the Clear Screen Code (CLS).
These two extra codes will ensure that after a slight juse (to allow the fade to take full effect) the screen mil be cleared so that we do n't get a repeat of the 3vector credit after the fade.
Font 19. The second line starts with a Control Code to change to colour 2. So. Joe Bloggs appears in colour 2 (which is currently yellow).
Control Codes because they are used by Scrolled to control every aspect of your text. They are even used to add special effects like the fades and wipes we will be using later in this tutorial ATTRIBUTES If we take the first four lines as an example, we can see that on the first ime is a Control Code to centre our text, followed by one to turn drop shadowing on and then one to use font number 19 [all fonts have numbers which they are referred to by).
All the text that follows a Control Code will be affected - so the word Camera becomes centred with a d'op shadow In Then, after the blank line on line three, line four starts with a Control Code to change back to colour I - white.
Therefore, the word Sound appears in white.
Try looking through the rest of the credits and working out what is happening. Once you have understood the Control Code system you should find that everything in Scrolled is very logical If you want to make the Control Codes invisible, simply press the Cul key once again and they will disappear As you Q va should have realised by now. You have been using Control Codes all along - it s just that you haven't been able to see them.
If you have understood the principle of Scrolled s Control Codes you will already have guessed that we need to put a font Control Code at the begirmkfl of each line where we want a font to I change The line of text after Joe Bloggs is Sound which we want to appear in flMj number 19 |Rich60|.

* ways to explicitly allocate system memory.
You may, for example, want to set up a buffer some temporary storage space) at a known «Jdress and one way of doing this is by using Ins Arexx built-in GetSpace(| function.
Memory test iddr ss:Eet$ p cc(sii«) | «nere size is the size of the memory area you
• ant and address is its address.
Arexx releases this memory automatically
• nen the script terminates and so, ffictly speaking, it is not
necessary for a mpt to explicitly release memory acquired in ns
way.
To my mind, relying on Arexx to do your reaning up operations is a bad thing (if ¦©thing else it encourages habits that will lead you into trouble when working with other anguages). Arexx does in fact provide this s,eeSpace() function which allows memory' to be ¦tturned: n=P reeSpace!address,sire) Very occasionally, a coder might need rather
* ore control over the memory allocation process and irt these
cases it is necessary to use the Embedding Once you've got the
hang of the general principles, memory allocation is easy
enough to do, but embedding numbers in the way I've just
described is a bad practice A bener approach in my mind is to
define some pseudo constants, ie fixed variables, that act as
constant values. Being a diehard C coder at heart. I tend to
adopt uppercase conventions like this: MAF.PMLIC » *00000001*1
XEXFJHIP = ' 00000002'x XERF_fA$ T * 'OOOOOCOi'x XENFJLEAR =
'00010000'i With these definitions in place your scripts can
then use expressions such as C2D(MEMF_CL£AR|+C2D(MEMF_CHIP| to
add the required flag values together, and then use the D2C|J
function to produce the.equivalent four byte stnng needed for
the AllocMem|J function.
The need for the C2D J and D2C(J conversion functions make the expressions a little more unwieldy than those coded in other languages, but this approach will allow you to write Arexx code which makes it very dear which flags are being set.
Look for instance at the following two expressions. The second call, despite the fact that it is a little more complex, leaves you in no doubt that 1000 bytes of cleared chip memory are being allocated: At lotktil 1000,D2C(65556+2)) AllocNfl(1000,D2C(C20(BEf!F_CLEAI)tC2D(l1EFIFJHIP))) When you experiment with these types of functions and want to view the flag values being produced, you can always use the C2X(| function to produce the hexadecimal output. For instance the statement.
Sl]r C2X(llEllf.CHIP)tC2A(l1EIIF_ClEAI) produces an output value of 010002 hex. Confirming that the chip memory and cleared memory flags are being correctly set in the resulting string.
With AllocMemlJ. Unlike GetSpacef). It is the responsibility of the programmer to return memory after use. And this is done using the rexxsupport library FreeMem() function.
As far as using allocated memory is concerned, data can be written to memory locations using the built-in Storagefl or Exportf) functions.
Similarly. Importf) can be used to read the contents of such memory btxk into an Arexx string. Til deal with these memory read write functions next month.
Lower level memory handling functions provided as part of the rexxsupport library.
The AIIOCMeml) function provides control over the type of memory being allocated. It uses the same type of ’flags' as the underlying Exec function uses and you'll often see these flag values given in decimal form like this: Public Memory Chip Memory Fast Memory Clear Memory 1 2 4 65536 As well as wondering about the purpose of the numbers themselves, you may well be asking at this stage what a flag' is.
In the computing world, flags are simply bits ¦ The heat way to get the hang of flags and conversion function use ia to experiment with short examples like this present in a variable, or perhaps a microprocessor's hardware register, which have been assigned some specific meaning.
Don't let Hrehh allocate memory for you, get in [ontrol. Paul Oueraa shows mou hoiii They are yes no (true false) type indicators which require just a single bit of storage space.
A longword (four bytes) of memory can therefore act as a store for up to 32 different flag values.
By convention, if a flag bit has the value I, then it is said to be set (or true), and if the bit has the value 0 it is said to be dear (or false).
The decimal form of combined flag values always tends to hide the identity of the flags - what is needed is an appreciation of the state of the underlying bits used to represent the numbers.
As far as memory allocation is concerned, a number of standard flag values are provided in the exec memory, h and memory, i system include files.
Arexx coders do not need to concern themselves with these files, except for the fact that they must use the standard memory attribute flag values when allocating memory (because the system functions expect thisj.
The bit position definitions of the most common memory attnbute flags in binary form are as follows: AERF PUBLK 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0001 Keflf.CHip 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0010 XERF.FAST 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0100 lEWJlEA1000O 0000 0000 0001 0000 0000 0000 Translated to Arexx hex form these become: RERF.PUBUC *00000001'* RERFJHIP '00000002*1 KRFJMT '00000004'* KIF.CLMII •00010000‘X So to allocate chip memory you'd need a flag value of 00000002'x. To allocate and zero a particular memory block, just add the appropriate memory type and memory clear flags
together. The stnng 00010002'x for instance would allocate cleared chip memory.

Amiga Computing [ontinuing on from last month's uisit to a professional graphics house.
Hdam Phillips union Rlternatiue Image, producers of commercial graphics and uideos ¦ A computerised flight over a landscape, created on VistaPro for Murofen Computing as soon as we are able to release more details. As for the future, it would seem that the graphics side of the business will grow to be larger than the video production that began Alter native Image s steady climb to success eight years ago While the recession did hit hard and employees were laid off. Freelancers now form a vital part of the company structure and people like Yuri Large, another staff member, and Martin Bibby. A
highly respected Imagine artist, continue to add to the company's calibre of talent.
Henri's personal ambition for the oncoming years is to create an animation feature using computer graphics exclusively He also has plans to move on to the much heralded Lightwave at some point if he's convinced that it's as good as everyone keeps telling him. Looks like another sale for NewTek.
¦ A ship elegantly descends to the bottom of the see as digitized, screaming laces rise to greet it - all created on Real 3D v2 with the help Ol a video camera for the faces Commodore complaints Henn Bujko is not a happy man when the words 'Commodore management’ are mentioned within an audible range, *1 never had any respect for Commodore because, although they have put a lot of money in to the 1200 as a games machine, their division for professional users is bad. Their marketing is bad.
They just don't Know what they are doing They missed out on so many opportunities, you couldn't believe it.'
Indeed, like Simon Hough of Crystal Haze last month. Henri makes it a rule not to teil clients that he uses Amigas to create graphics with. "What we rely on is showing people what we do and everybody lhat sees the finished result thinks it's marvellous.'
The Leicester-based company most be one of the most established Amiga users in the business. Formed eight years ago and primarily concentrating its finances on a video camera and recorder. Alternative began life as a very small, fledgling video company headed by two partners, Clive Worden and Stuart Hicking After two years of various videography projects, Henri Bujko was brought in as the third partner. Now heading the computer graphics side of the business, Henri explains why they moved into the Amiga market “We realised that we were paying so much everytime we went to a facility to get Dtles
put on to a video ahd decided that the Amiga would be a cost-effective way of doing it so we bought a 2000.'
Bujko continues: I thought it was really amazing - it was only a 68000- Dased 2000 with 3 megs of ram in it Included with the machine was the usual Dpamt and also Videoscape 3D. Henn began to use the latter more and more, creating three dimensional drawings -1 got obsessed with Videoscape 3D basically.'
As the company grew, so did the computer graphics side of the operation. Videos began to feature more and more animations and effects.
Alternative Image were one of the first buyers of Commodore s 020 cards for the 2000 and added more memory and larger hard drives to cope with the increase in computer-related work Next on the shopping list were more 2000s and a Single 3000 for rendenng purposes only.
Questioned on the lack of a 4000 in their Commodore graphics arsenal, Henn is adamant: The basic 4000 isn't fast enough - because we are fulfy 24-bit already, there's no real advantage m having the machine.* Their current set-up includes four Amiga 2000's, with the average spec for each including an 040 accelerator card (nearly twice as fast as a 4000 040|, 34 megs of ram and a 500 meg hard drive - ’just like a work station plus a 24-tnt graphics card."
On the software side, things have moved on somewhat from the early days. 'As graphics became more and more to the fore, more and more people wanted sophisticated stuff so that side just grew and grew " Now Adpro. Image FX. Brilliance, Imagine 3, Real 3D v2 and VistaPro. As well as Forge and Essence texturmg make up the current tools for graphic creation.
PROJECTS Some of Alternative s more recent computer work has been included in projects for Walkers Crisps. Caterpillar UK, Crookes Healthcare and various fitness videos.
They have also dabbled in pop videos and the X-MIX techno video senes that features various animations accompanied by rave music At the moment, they are working on a secret project that Henn claims will be ’something that hasn't been done before." Take a look at some of the graphics on this page and you'll see that the underwraps 24-bit interactive game is looking rather special.

HIGH STREET. LUTTERWORTH. LEICS. UK. LE17 4BA II sequencers provide editing facilities, although they vary enormously both in terms of the facilities offered and in the given to the various options.
- runately. The more common editing functions, rose which tend
to be available on most exencers, are usually easy enough to
identify from r manual descriptions of what they do.
Getting it right term tdiong' is usuaiy taken to mean making
- anges to track or sequence data after it has been
• orded. In practice, the user also has some control both the
type of data to be recorded and the that existing
track sequence data should be

’he usual arrangement is that the sequencer will ea special global parameters page, or list of txj opoons, whose settings will govern the way n* sequencer actually behaves during use t s here that the user can decide whether the sauencer should use an internal or an external
- ack. Whether it should provide an audiable
- eronome click or not. Whether it should tenuously loop through
an N-bar sequence or not.
Rdsoon Other settings may involve things like bong able c protect a Midi channel from being transposed, uomatically sending Midi start messages, or rserting gaps between groups of messages which
- ght otherwise be sent as unnecessarily dense :ackets of Midi
data.
Paul Oueraa ShOUI5 qDU hum tu Edit ipr 5QQU9IU95 m addition to all this, there may be any number of prerecord and post-record parameters and effects
• nKh can be selected.
The difference between these two classes of antrols is well worth mentioning: Prorecord arameters will govern the type of data actually sored in the tracks and sequences. Post-record parameters govern only how the stored Midi data rj Myedback A good example of a common global facility is that af Midi message filtering and remapping There are a rw occasions when it is useful to be able to restrict re sequencer's recording or use of certain types of Wdi messages.
* Similarly, it's often handy to be able to ask the sequencer to
modify certain types of events. The Midi Echo Thru option,
which allows you to change the inannel number of incoming Midi
data before it 15 sored and retransmitted, is one example of a
prerecord effect but usually much more can be done.
Sequencer One, for instance, has a "Set Filter option which allows many other types of Midi messages to be filtered and or modified Note on off. Polyphonic aftertouch, program change, pitchbend, and controller information can & oe selectively filtered out- it's also possible to convert channel aftertouch messages into controller data, remap controller numbers or even convert controller data into channel aftertouch messages.
* Repeat performance At the highest level you can, if you make a
mistake while you are recording your latest masterpiece, delete
the track or sequence and start again - recording, and
re-recording, until whatever it is that you are trying to play
sounds perfect (or as near perfect as you need it).
Sometimes, if you've made a complete hash of it, that's probably the easiest thing to do anyway.1 Usually things are not quite that bad and you simply find yourself in a situation whereby most of what you ve played sounds fine - but there are just a few places where slips have been made. Wouldn t it be nice if it were possible to go back and change those bits that weren t quite right.
Nowadays, of course, you can and with a sequencer it is actually possible to look at the individual notes in the track or sequence, remove ones that shouldn t be there, add notes that should be there or perhaps alter the pitch or duration of some existing notes.
Having made such changes, you just hit the sequencer's play' button and the corrected version' will sound the way you wanted it to sound in the first place.
These particular Sequencer One facilities are all of the prerecord type. If, for example, you decided to set the Sequencer One up so that it would filter out program-change messages, any track data subsequently recorded would end up containing no program change messages at alI (any program- change messages that night have been present in the original Midi input stream get lost forever) Most sequencers provide these types of prerecord filter options and Dr fs Tiger Cub. Music X etc., all have similar (although not completely identical) facilities.
Some sequencers are also able to produce filter and conversion effects after the data has been stored. These are post-record options and here the effects and settings work on the output side of the ¦ Sequencer* like Bar* A Pipe* Pro provide extremely powerful editing fecllltlee sequencer (Bars&Pipes is brilliant as far as this particular area is concerned and Music X is also good in this respect).
If you used a post-record filter option to remove progranxhange messages, you would not prevent these messages from being stored in the track or sequence but even though they ended up being present, any prograrrvchange messages would be skipped over (i.e. ignored) when the data was played back ITIESSHCES The big difference of course is that if, m the latter scenario, you cancelled the progranxhange filter option, any hidden progranxhange messages would be brought to hie and would again become part of the sequencer's output stream.
Post-record options have the benefit of flexibility because you can always undo a particular setting.
Pre-record filtering options, however, do soil have a use as far as the elimination of the storage of unnecessary information is concerned |used to be handy on machines where memory was tight) They have, however, become increasingly less attractive as the general ediong facilities of commercial sequencers have become more powerful Nowadays, it is normally feasible to record everything and then decide, retrospectively, what Midi data is to be kept and what data should be discarded.
Sequencer One. For instance, includes facilities for selectively stripping out particular event types from a given track. Again, most sequencers offer similar faciiioes and with some it is possible not onfy to stnp events, but to divert those isolated events to another track!

Here comes a time in every man's life when he realises he has a spmtuai side.
No, I'm not going to start chanting, seems to be a thread running through a lot :• Net life that everyone has a number of mystic jdes to their personality and they use the Net as jn opportunity for expanding these beliefs and wsuring that as many people as possible get the benefit of their ideals, Some people just collect odd beliefs and add mem to the growing number of weird and wonderful files you can read on the Net.
On the other side The most interesting stuff is centred around the vanous bogus religions which have surfaced over recent years, which at the same time lampoon and compete with the very religions they are set up to
mimic.
Discordanism is one of them, and the Church of the SubGemus is another. Other stuff is just odd knowledge with nowhere else to go, like information about UFO comactees, JFK theories and other life-deforming nonsense of every other colour or another.
You can loosely categorise the mystical aspects • of the Net into these groups:
• High Weirdness
• World Religions
• Bogus Religions
• Weird Science
• Conspiracy Theory
• UFOs
• Magic and Occult
• Herbalism All these topics are readily discussed, and okay, you
rmght not be looking for a new religion right now. Who is? But
it is absolutely fascinating and well worth the dme it takes to
seek it all out, So here is a roundup of various bits and bobs
I've been reading over the past few weeks, Most sources cite
other sources, so by copping a feed to one source you are
connected to other sources of info at the same time.
• Bogus Religions - the best chat about bogus religion, and also
some of the funniest and oddest people on the Net are to be
found in:
ill. slack ilt.diseordii
• It.Hlaiaiti Slack is the SubGemus newsgroup, discordia is the
Discordians, and Illuminati is based on the excellent
religious political conspiracy theories of Robert Anton Wilson.
Great stuff. You might also try to FTP to: qu»Ptt,rvt9ers.edu
in the directory: pub subgemus 5 as this also has some very
good SubGemus stuff, including the infamous SG newsletter,
• World Religions if you want to know more about, or flame people
who believe in any world religion which takes your fancy, here
are the groups you should be joining: ilt.ralifion.scltfttology
alt.religion.shaamis* alt.pagan ilt.sitmin soc.religion.bihli
soc.religion.Christian soc.religion.eastern soc.religion.islae
soc.religion.quaker soc. Religion, sbmniji talk.religion.aisc
talk.religion.neeage Obviously, making people in the Satanism
newsgroup mad with you is not to be recommended.
• UFOs - if you've been abducted by aliens, then these are the
groups where you ease your pain with a group of like-minded
individuals: alt.paranet.abduct alt.paranet.pkriAOrill
lit.paranet.science lit.pirenet.skeptic alt.paranet.ufo
Obviously if you can't get a Usenet fed in Alpha Centauri. Then
you're stuffed.
• Conspiracy - just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean the re
out to get you Of course those guys across the street in the
Range Rover with the tinted windows might just be lost and
looking for directions. For solace, and even more things to get
worried about, try these newsgroups: alt.conspiracy
• It.iindcontMl and then wait what was that funny noise outside?
• High Weirdness the ultimate guide to high weirdness on the Net
is the High Weirdness By Email guide, available by anon FTP
from: slopoke.ilb.s*«i.harris.coi among others. Usually to be
found in the directory.
Phil South loohs at mqstkism on the net.
pub vei rdntssfveird2J.doc Look out also for weird2_l sup, a supplement to the guide
• Magic. Magick, and other Occult Stuff eye of newt and toe of
bat ah yes, the black arts.
Let's cast an eye into the crystal ba« and see what floats to the top, eh?
To find texts and documents by the completely bat's ass Aleister Crowley, you need only ftp to: slopokc.alb.seat.kirriscoa Amiga Computing LD ALW Acorn® WORLD «¦ ¦ .J& SPONSORED BY Acom IciiHNUSEB A Wfc.

Because you can now buy a Rise PC.

And it lifts video and sound capability to new heights.
Acorn $ essing about with screen colours is a bit of a chore in Amos, as the program lacks any really simple palette or colour manipulation tools. Mostly you have to resort to axks and Dps which other people have coded - which is exactly where this little beauty from Marc Hall comes in.
But this rs doubly fiendish, as Marc has figured out a way to strobe the background colour on an
- Vnos screen, and does it very elegantly The code is a really
good example of how to
• weak colours in a user friendly way It's also making extensive
use of PROCs. Which as anyone who knows me will tell you I
prefer not to use. But C's good nonetheless What? What do I use
instead of PROCs? Why sub-routines of course. Call me old
fashioned but sutHOunnes work faster and are easier to debug
PROCs need global variables to be set and other stuff like
that. That's just my idea, and the other way works just as well
Anyway, back to Marc's program.
Fade to :1 bach See hew First a global variable assign Global CBACK meaning that the variable CBACK can be used by all other parts of the program, including any PROCs.
Next we tell the program that CBACK is equal to zero in hex: Hmos code head Phil South loohs at a nifty routine for fading tho background colour.
Loves to flash... CBACKMO Fine We're obviously going to do a litde bit of hexadecimal work here Next a little looping structure to control the action: for HO To 20 (BMndUQ96)] Beit l This calls the CB procedure, then returns and calls it again, over and over until your eyes cross.
And finally the procedure: Procedure Cbttl First define it. Then dimension your arrays, two of them G and R: Di. 1(21,6(2) Then we do a little fine shuffling of the colours: S=CBACK KBW 256 IU)t(B 16) tod 16 l(2):» iod 16 6(0)*S 256 6(1) (S 16) aod 16 6(2)*-$ aod 16 The mod is a mathematical term which enables us Monitor it Obviously if you re running Easy Amos or Amos Pro. Then you will be able to run the program with Monitor and see the effect of each function as it executes.
It s also a good idea to clear the screen to the background colour, or you will have a big brown square in the middle of the screen. I also printed an IFF file containing some text to the screen, using Load IFF, but that is simple to do. Enjoy!
To cycle a variable through a repetitive series of values. It stands for modulo and works by returning the remainder after a division.
So for example A=8 mod C is the same as A=B- lnt(B C)'C. This sounds complicated but it really isn't. It does however produce a number of interesting effects, like allowing you to toggle between two values.
So as A increases in value. B mod C creates a series of numbers ranging from 0 to C-l Anyway, back to the program Having pumped your series of numbers to get a nice useful series of semirandom numbers under 4096. You then set the repeat until loop in motion Repeat If 6 0) R(Q) Thtn tec 6(0) If 6(0) 11(1) Thu he S(1) 11 6(1) »(2J Thn tic 6(2) If 6(2) This looks at the numbers you've created, sorts them, and INCs and DECs the final figures accordingly Lastly, the figures are fed to a Colour Back command, which cycles the colour of the background in a pleasing way: Colour
6ick(6(G *25i*6(1)*16+6(2)) Vfeu Then wait a bit: lliit 2 ¦ Mow you can tweak colour* and create stylish and colourful screens And carry on until a certain circumstance exists: Until ft:(6(0)*256+6m*16*6 2)) CUCKH Then you can end the PROC.
End Proi And there you have it. It s a nice simple program, but the maths is a little complicated.
Try pulling out the mod pan of the program and running it as a loop so you can see how the program generates its numbers and therefore how it uses them It's easy to do this, as you simply add a status line into the program after each mod line, like so: Print R(0);* - ";•«);• - l(2);“ - •;!«) and the same for the Gj) array, and as the program runs it'll print out the figures which created that event.
Write stuff If you have an Amos question, or a routine you'd like to share witn the world, then please wnte to Phil South, AMOS Column, Amiga Computing.

CRACKLING Slis_V _VLV WOBBLER ®[p0mC]o0S0 PefcSE pewiiiiiiB SlirSlryek dttliti r ne of the most annoying things about fonts, including some expensive professional ones, is that they don't contain a full character set.
E, all the standard letters and numbers are but sometimes there are punctuation marks I, or foreign characters that you absolutely do without, or, as is the case with many 'are fonts, the good old British pound isn't there.
• hat can you do? Well, you can buy a isional font that contains
everything you I, and this w»n set you back perhaps £30 - or
five or six times that if you have to buy an family
¦Vternatively, you could invest in TypeSmith (if haven't
already) and fix it yourself, Let’s go lh the steps required
with a real world iple. The Times-Bold CG font from GoW Disk's
Fonts Pack, which has no fraction symbols •( Luckily for us,
the standard Workbench ; Jtimes font does have fraction
symbols, so we an pinch them from that.
MpoRi The first job is to run TypeSmith and import the CGTimes.font file from FONTS._bullet_outlines, Tien import the Times-Bold Nb file from CGFonts; - fis one will come in with CS Times Bold as the name of the font, whereas the Workbench font is :a!fed CG Times.
Organise the two windows on the screen so nat they are both visible and you can see a full character in both. Click in the CG Times window and select Show Overview from the View menu.
Click on the quarter symbol in the overview and press RightAmiga-C to copy that character to the clipboard. Now close that overview, click in CS Times Bold window and show the overview for that font.
Again, dick on the quarter symbol (it will be white, indicating that no character exists in that hole), and press RightAmiga-V to paste in the quarter symbol. Do the same for the other fractions if you like, When you are finished you can close the Workbench CG Times font as we no longer need to use iL Double click on the quarter symbol in the CS Times Bold overview to open a window for that character. At the moment that symbol has a width of zero, so the first thing to do is give it a width.
Ensure the quarter symbol is the active Hll change ='
• n JIS 71 A M Lu
• J. T. iXImjI. V~- ¦ Don’t forgot to give your characters a
width!
• • •
V. V Ben Fainter shoiijs you ham to add those missing characters
to your fonts is performed relative to the centre of the
character, type 120 into the Horizontal gadget and hit OK.
This will slightly fatten the vertical strokes of the character so that it is in keeping with the fat vertical strokes of the rest of the font. Note that we cannot scale the character vertically otherwise it will become taller than all the other characters and look weird.
Again, do the same for the other fractions.
And that's it. All that's left is to alter our font attributes to give our font a unique name and ID so that it does not affect the old Times-Bold font.
Window, then select Metrics from the Edit menu.
In the Width gadget type 900. Press Return and hit the Use gadget.
You should see a vertical dashed line appear to the right of the quarter symbol. Do the same for the other fractions if you have added them to this font.
Right, that's the widths sorted. The final step before exporting the font is to adjust the appearance of the fractions slightly so that they better fit the design of a bold font.
Click in the quarter symbol window and press RightAmiga-A to select all the points, then select Scale from the Path menu. Ensure that you have the top radio gadget selected so that the scaling IdfflllTV Hll auer again So select Font Attributes from the Edit menu and change both the FontName and the FullName to CSTimesBoldQTR. And change the Font ID number to. Say 999 - nothing much on the Amiga uses this font ID number, but it would be wise to change it anyway: create your own ID system if you like. Don't change anything else in the Font Attributes window (leave the copyright message alonef|
and hit OK to finish.
Now we can export it as a CG font not forgetting to select the gadget that ensures the dat and metric files are created for ProPage. For heaven's sake, don't overwnte the old Times- Bold.lib file - you might need it again some time
- call your new font Times-BofdQtr.lib or anything else you
fancy.
The filesize of this new font will be quite a lot bigger than the old Times-Bold.lib file. That's because in the import export process TypeSmith has had to add more points to every character.
If you ever need to add to this font again, you should start from scratch using the original Times- Bold.lib file otherwise even more points per character will be added, and after only two generations the font will become almost half a megabyte big and fail to display.
You can type the new quarter symbol in ProPage in two ways: either press Ajt-5. Or hold down the Alt key and type 188 on the numeric keypad - 188 being the number of the quarter symbol in ProPage's character set.
The half symbol is number 189. Threequarters is 190. (These character numbers are defined in the cg.chardata file in the CGFonts. Drawer !
Naturally you can alter and add to fonts for use in other packages - I've used ProPage and Times- Bold merely as an example. Another candidate for alteration are the CSTimes fonts that come with PageStream. These don’t have the 8 'at' symbol in them, which again you can pinch from Workbench's CGTimes font.
One last thing before I leave you to it If you ever find that your new character won't display, it’ll almost certainly be because you forgot to give it a width in TypeSmith.
