Comic-book hero Buck Rogers returns in another epic adventure from SSI very soon. Matrix Cubed is the sci-fi role-playing follow-up to the original Buck game Countdown to Doomsday, and is expected from I S Gold for I Mb Amiga owners next month 3 millionth Amiga is sold There are now more than three million people using Amigas worldwide, with the UK user base fast approaching the one million mark. The three millionth machine was sold during November 1991. But it s the continuing acceleration in Amiga sales which is causing a real celebration in the Amiga community. From its release in September 1985. The Amiga took threc-and-a-half years to reach the magic one million. Just a year-and-a-half later that figure was doubled. And the last million have sold in only a year. Britain is beginning to establish its place as the largest Amiga-owning nation in the world, with the number of Amigas in the UK rising rapidly from around half-a-million before Christmas last year, and Commodore UK confidently predicting that there will be over a million Amiga owners in the UK inside the next month or two. In America the Amiga is seen primarily as a creative tool for video, multimedia and graphics work and in Germany, which has around 700.000 Amiga owners, it's also taken very seriously. The vibrancy of Ihe UK Amiga market is probably accounted for by the fact that it's seen primarily as a games machine over here.with Amiga 500s making up a much higher proportion of the machines sold. Pre-Christmas computer buying guides in Which? Magazine and The Guardian both stereotyped the Amiga as a game-playing machine. This is typical of a view which potentially holds dangers for the Amiga: it’s a commonly-held opinion in the UK software industry that the Amiga is very vulnerable to competition from the games consoles. Here at Amiga Formal, we believe that the continued success of this magazine - which is still the best-selling Amiga magazine in the world, and more than twice as popular as any of the games-only Amiga magazines - show s just how w rang this stereotyping of the Amiga as a games machine is.

Icnightmare Viruschecker Sysinfo Virus Checker Picsaver Hello and welcome to Amiga Format, the world's best-selling magazine for Amiga owners! Every month we deliver the most complete picture of the Amiga scene, so whether you're new to the computer or an old hand, there's plenty in here that you'll find useful and enjoyable.
Every month, there's news and reviews of everything on the games scene and in the world of hardware and what we call 'serious' software (useful stuff like word processors, creative stuff like graphics and music programs and useful utilities). Then there's PD Update, which picks out the best in free software, and special sections of the magazine set aside to helping you with your problems: Gamebusters for game cheats and hints.
Workbench for any other Amiga hassles!
LBUT THERE 'S MORE!
This month, because we know there's a lot of people out there who've just got a new Amiga, we're being extra generous to beginners.
Throughout this issue, you'll come across the 'L' symbol which points out special information for anyone who's new to the Amiga.
So by the time you've flicked through the pages of the mag you should have picked up an awful lot of information that you might not have known already. Like how to protect your games from viruses, how 3D graphics programs work and why you get a Workbench disk with your Amiga.
And because Amiga owners are creatures of superior intelligence, we know you'll be doing more than playing games with your Amiga. The key to using serious software is Workbench, so a new series starts this month that will tell you how to get to grips with Workbench. Read, learn and enjoy!
There's all sorts of stupid reasons why you might want to grab a program screen and save it out as an IFF picture (mind you, there probably aren't any good reasons).
Still, you can do just that with this.
Welcome to Amiga Format!

Coverdisk Stop, look, and listen. These are the pages to guide you through an absolute dream of games and utilities on this months floppy... Just click on one of the options with the left mouse button. The rest is automatic. Go on. Give it a go now !
One thing that you may find (depending on how much memory you've got) is that after a few options some of them don't work.
This is due to your computer's memory getting clogged up along the way. Just reset the machine by pressing Ctrl and the two keys either side of the space bar. And the Console menu will load again.

RIC SAVER PREBEN NIELSEN PAL NTSC ¦ r Save Screen as., Size: 648 x 256 x 2 File 11 FEBRUARY 1992 This program solves one of the problems that a lot of people run into - how do you save out screens from within programs? Although not quite as good as a Datcl Action Replay II cartridge. Pit Saver is simply ideal for getting screens from everyday. Workbench friendly programs.
To run the program, just select the option from the Console menu. A small window will then come up.
Informing you that the program has been installed.
Running Pic Saver again will remove it front memory.
Using the program is nearly as simple. First, press the keys at the lower left side of the keyboard (Alt.
Shift and Ctrl). You will find a set of cross hairs will appear on the screen, and they will remain so long as you keep those keys pressed.
Pic Saver offers you three different ways to select graphics to save. If you press the S key (while the three keys described above are pressed) then the whole screen will be saved. Pressing W (again simultaneously with the three keys) will save just the currently selected window .
Alternatively, by moving the cross hairs with the mouse and clicking the left mouse button for the two comers, a rectangle can be cut out of the screen and saved on its own.
Once you have selected an area to save. Pic Saver will put up a requester box for you to type in a file name, to save the graphics as an IFF picture for loading into paint programs like Deluxe Paint. Within this box it puts up the dimensions of the area you're saving, plus the number of bit planes (a one bitplane picture has two colours, two bit planes give four colours, three give you eight colours and so on).
KNIGHTMARE IS A dungeon game and the aim is to explore the caverns, kill the monsters and collect the treasure. You have Find secret switches and the keys to unlock doors all while you are mapping the area. Your team has four adventurers, one of whom wears a helmet w hich provides the eyesight for the group.
The status of this gang of four is shown in the top right of the game display. Three of them have faces and one wears the 'seeing' helmet’. Their health, stamina and magic points are shown by the bar graphs to the left of each piccy. If any member of the team is hit then the damage they've taken is flashed in red over their name and the total taken from their hit points. If this gauge reaches zero, that character is dead and all their possessions will appear in front of you as will their heart - which can be used in the full game to bring them back to life.
VIRUS CHECKER V5.26 JOHN VELDTHUIS - PAL NTSC Computer viruses are an ever spreading menace, corrupting disks all over the world. If you've got a disk or two that behaves strangely, why not run this program over it just to make sure? This Is one of the latest releases around, and it can cope with most of the more common viruses that are currently In circulation.
There are two different ways to use Virus Checker, for looking for two different types of virus.
By running it from the Console menu, the program will Install Itself into memory - you'll see a small title window appear at the top of the screen. All floppy disks will be checked for boot block viruses as they are put Into disk drives.
When Virus Checker finds something suspicious, it will ask you what to do next. Do not select 'Remove' unless the program positively Identifies a virus. If It says that the boot block is suspicious, choose 'Display'.
Knightmare is mouse controlled with the left button initiating get move commands and right action commands. Clicking on the cluster of arrows moves the party in the direction of the arrow-. Once you're walking about you will come across objects lying on the floor, buttons in the wall etc. To get or use these click on them in the game window with the left mouse button. If it's an object the cursor will become that object to signify you've picked it up. If it's a button then it will have been pressed.
When you've picked something up you can either put it into the hands (the colour coded rows of cushions below the portraits) or the backpacks. To pul something in a hand, click it down on the cushion with the left mouse button. To access the backpack, click on the game window with the right mouse button and it will change to reveal an inventory. Just click the item down Then you can see If there is an encoded message (which usually says, "Don't kill me, I’m not a virus”). Never wipe the boot block from a games disk - that will probably kill the game forever.
To look for the other (file) type of virus the program takes a bit longer, and has to be told to actively look for the them. This is easy to do - click on the title bar, first with the left mouse button, then with the right.
The program then prompts you to enter which drive to check. Just take out the Coverdisk, put in the disk you want to check and click on continue.
Virus Checker prints a list of all the files It's checking, and whether or not they are a virus.
Finally, have a real good look at the documentation, which has a lot of Information about different types of virus at the end of It (most Is just a check list of all the updates of the program since It was first released) in the required slol with ihe left mouse button and once more with the right to exit the inventory. Each character has a backpack and to switch between them, use the colour coded icons in the top right on the inventory.
Fighting is a useful art to master, particularly as there arc a number of large beasties hunting you down.
Characters can either light empty handed or with a weapon they hold.
To attack click w ith the right button over the hand you want to hit with. This brings up a menu of the possible options for that weapon hand (punch, kick, stab, slash, hack etc), just move the cursor over the option you want and click with the right button again. You'll here a w hoosh as the hand goes through the air and an impact if it hits. This is a slow technique and confusing when the going gets tough, but you can pre-set the hands to repeatedly do your bidding. Once again call up the menu with the right mouse button, then select the option you want with the left. The scroll menu will
clear and the cushion should bear a small red-and- whitc triangle, show ing it has been 'primed'. When the action starts click on the cushion with the right button, and Ihe chosen action happens. It will be cross hatched for a second or two w hile the character recovers from the blow, but once it clears you can strike out again.
HINTS:
• Check every square of corridor thoroughly for secret buttons.
• Always preset you actions, you never know when the next fight
will take place.
• Try the magic wands with different characters, as magical skill
varies.
• Remember that all your characters arc either left or right
handed, so take care which hands have the best weapons.

PIC OF THE MONTH JOHN RYAN - PAL ONLY An excellent example of just what you can do with 16 colours and resolution, Sea Monster was painstakingly blended, smoothed and smeared with Deluxe Paint III at a college which the arlist attends (he doesn’t even own an Amiga and he can do this). Can you do better? We use only the best entries.
Send yours to: Pic of the Month. Amiga Format, Future Publishing.
30 Monmouth Street. Bath BA1 2BW DOODY ANDY CLARK - PAL ONLY First, a word of warning. Doody just doesn't work on some Amigas. It isn’t caused by different chips or memory expansions
- even on a pair of identical machines, sometimes it works,
sometimes not (turning off auto fire if you have it seems to
help).
PLOVER 1 PLOVER 2 “2 2000 * Assuming that you can get the program working on your Amiga (It does work on the majority) you'll soon discover it’s a cute, fast and fun game. Doody is an orange on legs who has fallen down a sewer. The idea is to go through 32 levels of increasingly difficult bad guys who just love icing Doodys.
To play the game you will need a joystick plugged into port two (not the mouse port). Press fire to get to the game after you've loaded it through the Console Menu as per the Getting Started box on the facing page.
The controls are simple in concept but difficult to master. Press left or right to move in the relevant direction, and press fire to jump. Note that it takes a while for Doody to start and stop moving, but once at speed it's the fastest thing on the screen.
FEBRUARY 1992 I To kill the nasties (necessary to complete each level) you have to first knock them off their feet, and then run over them. To do this you hit the platform they're standing on from below. Beware, if you knock them while they're already down it will bounce them back up again! The POW button can be hit for a smart bomb effect - it knocks all the bad guys down.
Collect the Bonus letters and tokens for more points (an extra life is awarded every 10.000). Have fun, and try playing with a friend If you have two joysticks: hit F2 from the title screen or hlgh-score tables. After you've finished playing, you will have to turn your computer off - a clever but annoying little quirk.
SYSINFO VI .98 NIC WILSON SOFTWARE - PAL NTSC Here is one of those utilities that you use only once or twice. It gives you a speed rating of your Amiga, and displays some interesting information about the Internal chips fitted.
This is handy information to know If you are thinking about upgrading to Workbench 2 and you want Enhanced Chip Set, because many A500s and A1500 A2000s already have an ECS capable Agnus chip, but some don’t. Find out if you're one of the lucky ones.
To run Syslnto, just click on the option from the Console menu with the left mouse button. The program will take a few seconds to do some test procedures, and then puts the results up on an attractive diagnostic screen.
Please don't be too upset it Syslnto makes rude comments about the speed of your machine.
Remember that most of the comparisons are made against machines with faster processors or accelerator cards. The program does praise such devices If It encounters one.
Using Your Coverdisk
1. Always write-protect your disk. Move the tab so a hole is
showing.
2. Copy the Coverdisk and use the copy, not the original. This
may sound like a complicated task suitable only for techno
buffs, but it’s surprisingly simple to do, just follow the
simple instructions for copying the disk which are given
below.
3. Read the instructions when using the programs.
U r® our Disk There are two ways of making a copy of your disks, and this is the easy one. Don't be daunted by the fact that you need to use the Shell or CU: it's actually a lot easier than you might think.
Just follow these simple steps... .hi iltkTttS dick 1 la Kl IflHiiT? » ink » it »IM tft: wm~
- ntn--J B
S. Put the source disk and destination disk in a couple more
times when the AMIGA asks for them. When it says “Diskcopy
Finished" just type in: endcli to get out of the Shell or Cll.
You may have to put the Workbench disk in again. Now your copy
is ready!
FEBRUARY 1992 DISK PROBLEMS?
If you have a problem with the disk - and you're sure the disk is in full working order - then you may need a little help. If you ring us on any Tuesday, and ask to speak to Pat McDonald, he will do his best to help you. Please understand, giving this sort of advice is time-consuming and we are very busy people, so only call If you really have to and do be considerate if we can't talk to you just then. If the problem is particularly complex it is better to send it to us In written detail. It will then be dealt with in the Workbench pages of the magazine.
BE CAREFUL!
We have done our best to check that the programs on the Amiga Format Coverdisk are simple to use and have no known viruses. We cannot usually answer complex telephone queries on the software |see the Disk Problems? Box) and we do not accept liability for any consequences of using the numerous programs that are on the disk.
COPYRIGHT Unless it is specifically stated, the programs on the Coverdisk are not in the public domain and the copyright remains with the author of the program.
Because some of the programs on the coverdisk are not PD, selling or distributing them without the author's specific permission is against the laws of copyright.
Disk not workinq?
We duplicate over 160,000 disks every month. Out of all those, obviously a few will be faulty. If the disk or any of the programs will not load or run properly, there may be a problem. Don't panic!
First try using the DiskDoctor utility on your Workbench disk to rescue it before sending it off for a replacement. In-full details of DiskDoctor can be found in the user's manual that came with your machine.
However, if your Coverdisk is faulty, you should send it back INCLUDING AN SAE for a free replacement within a month of the cover date to: Amiga Format February Disk Disk Copy Labs Unit A, Westmarch London Road Daventry Northants NN11 4SA Remember to include that stamped, addressed envelope!

Interesting ••• Philips have announced that their Taiwan plant has turned out the company's 10 millionth computer monitor. After eight years of producing them.
Buck's back!
Comic-book hero Buck Rogers returns in another epic adventure from SSI very soon. Matrix Cubed is the sci-fi role-playing follow-up to the original Buck game Countdown to Doomsday, and is expected from I S Gold for I Mb Amiga owners next month 3 millionth Amiga is sold There are now more than three million people using Amigas worldwide, with the UK user base fast approaching the one million mark. The three millionth machine was sold during November 1991. But it s the continuing acceleration in Amiga sales which is causing a real celebration in the Amiga community.
From its release in September 1985. The Amiga took threc-and-a-half years to reach the magic one million. Just a year-and-a-half later that figure was doubled. And the last million have sold in only a year.
Britain is beginning to establish its place as the largest Amiga-owning nation in the world, with the number of Amigas in the UK rising rapidly from around half-a-million before Christmas last year, and Commodore UK confidently predicting that there will be over a million Amiga owners in the UK inside the next month or two.
In America the Amiga is seen primarily as a creative tool for video, multimedia and graphics work and in Germany, which has around 700.000 Amiga owners, it's also taken very seriously. The vibrancy of Ihe UK Amiga market is probably accounted for by the fact that it's seen primarily as a games machine over here.with Amiga 500s making up a much higher proportion of the machines sold.
Pre-Christmas computer buying guides in Which? Magazine and The Guardian both stereotyped the Amiga as a game-playing machine. This is typical of a view which potentially holds dangers for the Amiga: it’s a commonly-held opinion in the UK software industry that the Amiga is very vulnerable to competition from the games consoles. Here at Amiga Formal, we believe that the continued success of this magazine - which is still the best-selling Amiga magazine in the world, and more than twice as popular as any of the games-only Amiga magazines - show s just how w rang this stereotyping of the Amiga
as a games machine is.
Home projects now possible example, be used as a basis for an Amiga-driven robot or a home control system.
The second is the Sensor and Control Experiment kit. Which costs £24.95. As the name might suggest, this is designed to help with electronics experiments and projects. It includes a relay-controlled motor, a reed switch, a light bulb, a tilt sensor and four LED lights. It scents ideal for combining an interest in electronics and the computer.
Switchsoft (1325 482454 Here's an idea for you! For some time now. We've been aware that there's no way you can use your Amiga to control electrical gadgetry. Until now that is!
Switchsoft have announced a couple of new whizzy gadgets that home electronics fans will find both fascinating and useful.
The first is an Inpul Output port, which costs only £26.95 and allows you to connect electric motors, light bulbs or whatever else you w ant up to your Amiga and control them from BASIC programs. It could, for GVP reveal expansions within expansions A GVP hard drive is fast becoming more than just a mcmory-booster.
GVP. The American firm that leads the world in Amiga hardware sales, announced their processor accelerator for the A500 Impact Series II hard drive exclusively at the World of Commodore Show in November. Now they've revealed details of their PC Emulator for the hard drive, adapted from the Vortex ATOncc card.
The key detail behind both the 68040 accelerator and the new GVP PC286 emulator is that they actually install inside the new version of Ihe Impact hard drive, attaching to what GVP have termed the mini slot' in the drive. This new approach to expansions makes limitless expansion of the A5(X) a real possibility, while avoiding the problems of invalidating your warranty that tend to be a concern with A500 internal expansions.
Already the GVP hard drive, consistently identified as the best for ihe A5CXI in Amiga Format's independent reviews, is a good wav of adding the two vital ingredients for serious A500 owners, allow ing you to include up to 8Mb of RAM as well as Ihe hard disk storage.
Now it seems it will cater for all your other needs too. GVP are keenly aware not only of the size of the UK Amiga user base tsee lead story) but also of the dominance of the Amiga 5(H) in the UK.
And seem to be responding well to catering for UK Amiga users. The only snag is that the release date of the redesigned hard drive and the two mini-slot expansions has yet to be determined.

RrD AMOS gets Easy Games programming system AMOS is to appear in a new version aimed at complete beginners.
If you know nothing about programming, this could be your best bet to get into creating games.
The original AMOS had a reputation as being a beginner's programming system, which really it isn't. It's actually a complete language, which inevitably means you need to spend considerable lime and trouble before you can get good results.
Now. However, there's Easy AMOS. This new version assumes that you know absolutely nothing about programming when you start, and leads you step by step through the learning process. Publishers Europress have made this possible with a character called Professor Amos, who leads the lessons, and a carefully-written manual. Europress's Paul Shrimpling claims that Easy AMOS is so simple that even his grandmother has been able to get to grips with it. It's probably not the ideal birthday present for grannie, but you'll be able to buy it yourself from next month for £34.99. Europress Software 0625
859333 Amiga Format in on another show!
Following the hugely successful World of Commodore show, which was presented by Amiga Formal, we're going to get involved in another one.
This time around, though, it's going to be a slightly different affair.
The new Show, currently pencilled in for the end of April at Wembley. London, will be arranged by Amiga Shopper, 'the magazine that's serious about your Amiga'. Amiga Shopper is also the magazine that helps you decide what to buy. So their show will be concentrating hard on bringing you bargains galore from all the top names in Amiga distribution and sales.
Although bargain-hunting and Amiga-related buying will form the main focus of the Amiga Shopper Show, it's also likely to reflect the other face of the magazine: advice. The magazine team that answers heaps of questions every month should be on hand to give their opinions and lend a helping hand w ith your Amiga problems. And w ith any luck.
Amiga Format will be allowed to go along as well, so see you there!
Games developers have their say The Society of Software Authors annual conference is the place where the top games programmers meet to discuss the state of their art. We went along to see what they're worrying about... It's not often you see more than half the country's top games programmers gathered together in one room. But it happens once a year as the Society of Software Authors, a loose gathering of well-intentioned developers, collects for the conference. The day is organised around guest speakers, who have their say and then answer questions or lead a group discussion with the audience.
One of the main concerns of developers seems to he losing their image as amateurs working during the night in back-bedrooms and sleeping during the day. Andy Craven of Vcklor Grafix proposed the idea that developers must become increasingly professional, working to normal office hours and being careful to hit deadlines.
He believes that the emphasis is moving towards new games being commissioned by the software houses from developers with a proven track record. The benefits for game buyers arc that games will go on sale on time and quality can be guaranteed.

Strong vision of what makes a good computer magazine is needed. Salary commensurate with experience, all applications treated in strictest confidence.

APPLY IN EACH CASE TO STUART ANDERTON AT ADDRESS BELOW The view' from the other side of the fence is pretty much the same, with MicroProsc.
Representing the publishers, saying pretty similar things. They also had some interesting opinions about the future of games, however, with research telling them that Pcs and consoles arc the growing areas of software sales. Maybe so. But the Amiga’s share doesn't need to grow: it already sells more games than any other format.
With an increasing number of Britain's developers now' working on mluti-format systems and developing for consoles, it's one view of the future that's of great concern to them. As ever, the conference spent a fair amount of time discussing the possible future of gaming, with virtual reality much talked-about and. Later, a presentation by Sandy Mackenzie of (he Philips CDI system, with a clear push to get Britain's programming talent interested in developing for the new CD system. Possibly the cost of a development system, and the fact that CDI productions tend to be 'created' rather than
programmed, will mean it's unlikely to suit the traditional 68000 coder.
The day closed with the 'A Question of Software' quiz, in which Damien Noonan and Neil Jackson (from our sister magazine ST Format) represented the magazines against teams from the developers and the publishers. Despite the fact that we had questions ranging from Nintendo cheat systems to Boolean algebra, the magazine teams managed to carry the day. Narrow ly beating the audience on points!
The SSA conference is a highly enjoyable, very well organised and very well presented event. The SSA exists to dserve the cause of the developers, which can only be A Good Thing. Any developer who is interested in joining the Society should contact Nalin Sharma on 081 503 2521. One last thought. What do you call a gathering of programmers? Well, it has to be an assembly, doesn't it?

Lucasfilm games have announced, at a British press conference, their plans for 1992 and beyond.
Trenton Webb reports with not only a preview of Monkey Island 2 but also hears of the US games giants big plans for the future of computer games. A future that focuses sharply on the Amiga and its Cl) potential.
LUCASFILM ARK ON a roll. Last year's awesomely good Monkey Islaml should have been a lough act to follow, bin with Indiana Janes IV. Monkey Island 2 and iMUSK in Ihe bag il should be simple. And if iheir carefully considered vision of a CD-based gaming fulure comes lo pass ihen. As Doug Glen, head of Lucasfilm Games puis il. "in 1998 ihesc will look like old Busier Kcalon movies: quainll" iMUSE is Lucasfilm's interactive music system which is currently having its public debut al the US Consumer Electronic Show. Doug Glen explains lhal.
"il allows a composer lo write music for 100 per cent of ihe game. IMUSE intelligently scores Ihe music and sound effects so that they're in sync with your characters' actions. The pilch and pace of the game's current situation will be reflected in ihe music. Il really adds atmosphere" . And the syslcm isn't just for Pcs with £300 soundcards, bul w ill be ported over lo ihe Amiga with tweaks where necessary.
Il is Lucasfilm's plans for Ihe fulure. Though, that 1992 will be a prolific year for ihe US publisher as ihey release iwo major new games on ihe Amiga and rework older lilies for ihe CDTV They also have a new sound system called iMUSE in the offing, which should make computer gaming a far richer experience.
Indiana Jones IV - The Fate of Atlantis and The Secret of Monkey Island 2 are ihe new titles and boih look sel lo push graphic advenlurcs further lhan ever before. For ihe first lime Indy goes solo without a movie lo support him. Me will, however, have the talents of lop Hollywood scrip! Writers lo make sure ihe game has lhal authentic feel. Once again 'hat man' is taking on the might of Ihe Third Reich, this lime in a race lo keep ihe Atlanteans' secret power source from ihe hands of the Nazis.
Monkey Island 2 looks belter lhan the original, w ith a wilder strain of humour and a more outrageous plot.
It's the brainchild of Ron Gilbert, w ho wrote Monkey I. il involves all Ihe best characters from the first game in a bigger, betler and brighter talc. The game w ill also be ihe first Amiga production lo fealure iMUSE.
REAL CD GAMES LOOM' As to how CD games are going to differ to computer games, head of Lucasfilm Games, Doug Glen, used a cinema motif to Illustrate his point: "In movie terms the current state of Cds is about 1905, when films were shown to the public on a regular basis. But it took until 1925 for zoom shots to be used. This was due to the different narrative language between film and theatre, people had only ever seen plays from one perspective - a distance. It's the same for CD, the narrative expressions haven't been discovered yet.
Since it's never been done before no one knows about It until someone tries out new techniques".
Should warm Amiga and CDTV owner's hearts as Doug Glen confirms: "We believe 1992 will be Ihe first year of Irue CD games. There arc al leasl 14 different standards of CD ROM currently available or in development. CD ROM drives though, can be divided inlo three different types: Cds requiring a video game console: Cds requiring a personal computer, and Cds designed lo operate w ith a dedicated unit, most notably Commodore's CDTV and Philips' CD-I. We are currently gelling ready Indiana Jones and tlte Last Crusade. The Secret of Monkey Island and Loom for Commodore's CDTV. We are also
upgrading graphics, incorporating additional animations, adding new soundtracks and in the case of Loom we re retrofitting ihe original game to support a full voice soundtrack.
FEBRUARY "Loom is our first exercise in CD. We call it a 'Talkie' and the reworked version sees the introduction of some lip syncing and broad term body language. At the moment we're taking games and fitting them with vocals, but it's then that you start to realise what you would have done differently if it had been designed for speech from scratch. In September I992 Lucasfilm will begin full production of games with CD as their target medium."
The upside of this equation is lhal w ith the CDTV already on sale and the imminent release of the A690 CD drive. Amiga owners have a guaranteed stake in Lucasfilm's version of the future. The downside is that as games of this genre become bigger Monkey Island is 7Mbl then disk-based games will just become less and less practical.
The investment in a hard drive could well be worth it though, when you consider that the licences for the Star Wars series have just lapsed. So now Lucasfilm have ihe rights to make games about their own movies.
They've already done an action version for the Nintendo NES but as Doug Glen says. "Graphic adventures are the right formal for movies".

Specification & prices subject to change without prior notice VISA EVERY GENERATION HAS it- heroes and in this age of high technology and the home computer, it's the games programmers who have set an example that thousands of computer addicts dream of following. Images of games programmers swimming in cash or driving flash sports cars have served only to fuel the fanatical interest in the lifestyle of the successful games programmer.
Most computer users try their hand at games programming sooner or later, but the problem is. Many budding programmers try to run before they can w alk. Dreaming of writing a game that would put the likes of David Braben or Jez San to shame is all very nice, but you're in for a real shock if you think your initial efforts are going to be even close to the quality of Elite. StarCUder 2 or Lemmings.
Point number one: even as a beginner, with care you can do some pretty good stuff. But try ing to write a game that is beyond your capabilities is the quickest way of turning initial enthusiasm into eventual frustration.
We've all done it - back in the days when I was learning to program. I often attempted to The not-so-triclcy art of games programming Many people see games programmers as super-human characters blessed with the brain power of Einstein, but you too can get in oh the act.
Jason Holborn points out exactly how... FEBRUARY 1992 write games that were far beyond my abilities.
Designing the game and its graphics were a lot of fun to do. But when it came to the actual coding. I was stumped.
Not that you necessarily have to be good at coding. The way most mt dcm software developers work is that a programmer works with an artist who does the graphics, a musician to cover in-game music and sound effects, and a game designer who acts like a producer and looks after the overall concept and makes sure that the game keeps its emphasis on play ability as it develops. Nowadays, there are plenty of very good coders around: but what developers and software houses alike are looking for is new ideas for games.
Point number two: you don't have to be a programmer to get involved in games. But it is useful to hav e an idea of how games are created. Which you can easily pick up just by reading this article.
If you're good at art. For example, develop techniques for doing interesting stuff in Deluxe Point - that's exactly how most game graphics are done - but when you read this article, you'll realise you want to concentrate on making things look good while using a limited amount of colours. And if you want the most interesting of jobs, without ever getting your hands dirty, you can become a game designer. But you do need to understand the basic principles of how a game works, to know what can and can t be done. And that's where game creation packages come in.
As si ell as getting experts like Bullfrog. Vis id Image. The Assembly Line and Magnetic Scrolls to explain what's involved in programming a game, the other major part of this feature is doing it the easy way: game creation packages. Some of these, like the M) Construction hit. Involve very little programming. And then of a very simple kind. Others, like AMOS, are programming languages with extra helpful features plugged in. Either way.
They can help you to start off as a beginner, or to try ideas out if you don't actually want to progress to coding.
For these you really just need an Amiga, and you're away. If you want to get into proper programming, you'll need a bit more besides. First, choose your programming language. Then look to your hardware.
You'll almost certainly need at least a megabyte of RAM (more wouldn't hurt) and a second drive is always a good idea. Better still, vou'll find a hard drive a real life saver.
Especially when you start working on larger projects. You'll need a decent paint package to produce the graphics for your game: Deluxe Point III or IV. Or the complete paint package The Graphics Workshop which we brought you on the Coverdisk of Issue 30 (copies are still available for £5 from our back issues department, if you missed out) are ideal.
You'll also need a sound sampler (for producing effects) and a suitable music composition package. Most programmers use Sound Tracker clones like MED. Simply because they are so easy to use. What's more, because many of them are available through the PD libraries, a decent SoundTracker isn't going to cost you an ami and a leg.
Kilted out with that lot and this feature, you're away, and if you sell your game to Psygnosis. We'd like a share of the profits.
? PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES Any programming language you want Is available on the Amiga, so if you've used PASCAL at college, you could use it at home. But there are three main choices.
Traditionally. BASIC is the beginner's programming language, but it's never really taken off on the Amiga. The best place to start Is probably AMOS, which is a form of BASIC but with lots of extras, and it's used a lot for educational software because it can give colourful, simple results very easily. The language most used for programming serious applications is C. which you can use to write your own CLI commands, for example. But the only real option for top-class games tends to be assembly language, where HiSoft's Devpac 2 assembler is the one you should buy.
AS WELL AS writing some classic games like Populous 2. Programming team Bullfrog take lime out to teach assembly language programming to local youngsters.
Chief frog. Pete Molvneux. Explains how they go about it... The big difference between learning from a book and learning the way we do it. Is that books are too general to be any good. Pick up a book and they'll start teaching you about how to open a screen, or read the joystick port, and do all sorts of gubbins... which you actually require a very high level of technical knowledge before you can even do the simplest of things, just putting one dot on the screen, for example.
We take that level of expertise away completely. We start with a ready-made system that opens the Amiga up. Displays a screen so you can start draw ing sprites to it.
Then it initialises the mouse, joystick and gets all that ready, so you don't have to worry about that. Because if you want to learn games programming, that's what you want to do: draw something on the screen.
I would say that over half of every Amiga book I've ever read that teaches you programming. Is taken up with just doing the trivial things.
Within Five minutes of sitting down to learn programming, someone will have written a program: a very, very simple program to move a sprite on-screen. All they actually have to learn is just three assembly language instructions, and they are Move.
Add and Jump to sub-routine. Jump to subroutine they don't even really have to understand these.
The First thing to introduce people to is get them used to what registers are. They're really , really simple, it's just like a variable in BASIC. Then there's lots of different things you can fiddle around with.
Eventually, they know just two instructions: for example, move.word 10.d0. Whatever the number is in dO. It could be from zero to
319. That is the position on-screen that the sprite appears at.
It's simple as that, so people can start messing around, moving the sprite around on their ow n. Then we can start using Add.
So if I said move 10. DO. Then dO would equal It). If 1 then said add £5.d0 then dO would equal 15. So the sprite would appear at position 15. So that's it. You've just learnt two assembly language instructions!
The next step along is to do something a little bit more interesting, and that's to tie that sprite to the joystick, so that as you move the joystick backwards and forwards, the sprite moves backwards and forwards, so you're already building up a little program. Again, you're jut using the move and add instructions.
Then we add the use of a Fire-button. That then launches off into a whole new area, which some people find quite hard at First.
Until eventually you have a finished game.
Which you can then change and modify and create a totally new game. It has to be simple: if you try to be too ambitious, people get daunted. Bui it’s a complete game: and if it were bigger, you'd look at it and think. “That's a finished product!".
There are a couple of things that are very useful to know before you start. The first is doing arithmetic - I know it sounds slupid.
But it's amazing how many people don’t, or haven't bothered for years - and the other thing is knowing about hexadecimal. And what’s called Boolean algebra. Most people do it as part of a GCSE Maths course, but otherwise it’s just a question of picking up a book, or asking at school. And you have to be able to understand co-ordinates. The Boolean operations you need to understand are AND. OR and NOT. Brush up on that, and you won't have a problem!
And that is. You start to want to have just more than one sprite on screen. When you press the fire-button. You want something to shoot out.
So you've got to write a program that caters for two or more sprites.
That's where you start to use variables rather than registers. You've only got 15 registers. So you have to start using the memory of the computer to hold your values. The registers are actually on the processor, and there's only 15 of them on the poor old 68000. If you want to have something very very fast, then you do it in registers.
By now we've introduced the subject of animation, which is really simple. It's just taking whatever your artist has drawn and plonking it on screen. After we've got all that, with the sprite moving around with the joystick and using the fire-button and multiple sprites on screen, we then start to introduce some game tactics.
The first one we introduce is velocity. If voO look at a game with a main sprite tied to the joystick, as you move the joystick to the left, the sprite doesn't instantly react and move to the left, it slows down and then slowly starts moving to the left. Thai's velocity. You've got a direction that your sprite is moving in. And a speed your sprite is moving at. And instead of just immediately changing that, you just slow the speed down and then invert the speed. You just start subtracting bits from it till the sprite's stopped and then building up to a maximum.
After we’ve done velocity it's collision, and again it's an important thing for games: how do you detect one thing hitting another thing, or a bullet hitting something? Simple. You've got one sprite moving on-screen: you've got FEBRUARY 1992 Dave Jones is the man behind DMA Design and the mastermind of the infamous Lemmings, a game that is generally regarded as one of the best Amiga games of all time. Now available in both Amiga and CDTV format.
Lemmings is even being written for the coin-op arcades. But Dave started his games programming career working on an A500. Using nothing more than a copy of HiSott's Devpac Amiga and Deluxe Paint.
Working in the evenings while not giving up his day job. Dave produced Menace, the game which set the foundations for the success that DMA now enjoys. This all goes to prove that you don't need thousands of pounds of equipment to produce a marketable game - a basic A500 with a megabyte of RAM and twin drives is more than enough.
In Amiga Format's original programming series, way back in Issue 7. He gave away the secrets of how Menace was made. The game itself was terribly simple: and in many ways. Lemmings is no more complex. If you’d read Dave's series in Amiga Formal, it could have been you that programmed Lemmings. But it's having the idea that counts, and it was Dave who thought up the ingenious little creatures! Oh No! (See Page 68) Learning to program the Bullfrog way!
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED... II you'd like to take advantage of the Bullfrog ‘easy route to assembly language programming success', just send a cheque for... no, no, that's just a joke! The Populous programmers will start running a tutorial In this magazine either next month or the month after (we've got a few details to sort out first). They'll also be giving away the code engine' that can get you started, and we re trying to do a deal with the manufacturers of Devpac, the top Amiga assembly language compiler, to give you a low- cost route into programming. Watch, as they say. This space...
WHAT YOU NEED TO BE A PROGRAMMER The Bullfrogs developed all their games, including the mighty Populous 2, entirely on the Amiga. They use the assembly language compiler Devpac 2 from HiSoft. Deluxe Paint from Electronic Arts for the graphics and animations, and the sound sampler AudloMaster for the sound effects. And that's all you need to produce a top-notch Amiga game!
Another sprite moving on screen: and you just compare their X and Y co-ordinates. It's just simple brute force, basically.
When the program's finished, there's one big loop, with lots of little jumps to subroutines, if you looked down that loop you would sec: process the movement of the sprites: check for collision: check the joystick; draw the sprites on screen: display the screen: then go round and do the whole thing again.
After all this, you're well into creating a game. We then talk about various asides, like doing the scores, a high-scorc table and so on.

THEY'RE all exactly the same, aren't they? We're not casting doubt on their originality or gameplay. But the majority all use a similar programming technique. You may not think a platform game has a lot in common with a shoot-em-up. But they share a common concept - sprites.
The programmers give away their secrets Vivid Image on Arcade Games The authors of the graphically outstanding First Samurai are definitely the ideal people to explain away the tricks that go into making a 'sprite-based' game look pretty bleedin' brilliant... Essentially, all you arc doing in this kind of game is controlling a little bunch of pixels, and the pixels could make up a spaceship or a little feller who fires rainbows. Your little bunch of pixels is called a 'sprite' and it moves about over a background. Other sprites can make up enemies, or moving parts of the scenery.
To understand the main mechanics of this kind of game, all you have to do is think of it slowed down massively. The TV screen or monitor changes its picture 25 times a second, and it's between each change of picture that everything in the game happens. First the game reads the joystick input, to see where you've moved your player sprite to. Then it moves all the other sprites according to the paths set down in the program. Then il sees if any sprites are overlapping: this is what's called collision detection. If so. It'll trigger off an explosion or whatever: if not. You carry on.
"Backgrounds for games like First Samurai are not just huge images held in memory, they are built up from blocks in a similar way to a jigsaw.** Thai's the basics. But how are experts like Vivid Image thinking when they develop a game?
Most programmers prefer either 32 or (more commonly) 16 colours. For First Samurai. Vivid decided upon a 16-colour screen, allocating eight colours to the main sprite (your samurai) and the remaining eight for the backgrounds. The Amiga's HAM mode is rarely used by games programmers apart from the occasional static title screen. Some programmers take advantage of the 32 colours available in low-res. But not all.
The next step in designing a game is the sprites. It's important to decide upon the colour palette and then stick to it. It's possible to change colours from level to level, but each level has to use the same colours throughout. Even then, only changes lo the last eight can be made because the main sprite has to remain the same colour regardless of which level you arc on.
Once the colours for the sprites arc decided it's time to calculate how many pixels the screen is to scroll when a sprite runs across the screen, allowing the animation to look as convincing as possible. Next is how many frames the game is to run in. For those of you that don’t quite understand this, we'll explain... Every game, be it sprite-based or 3D. Is based around a loop that performs all the functions that must be carried out for the game to run. Every time the loop is performed, the screen is redrawn once, so the faster Ihe loop is performed, the faster your game will run.
But you don't necessarily want the game to run at 25 frames per second. If your animation runs too quickly, your character will walk too fast, so it's vitally important lo break the animation down into a precise number of frames so that the character doesn't walk too fast or too slow.
When it came dow n lo designing the sprites for First Samurai Vivid Image lore pages out of Walt Disney's book, borrowing some animation techniques. For example, the main character isn't in proportion to a real human - he's very squat. If you saw him walking down your local high street, you'd feel rather sorry for him. But in the game it looks right.
Even the process of draw ing the sprites w ithin First Samurai wasn't straightforward. To save memory.
Vivid split the main sprite into three boxes, each 32 pixels wide by 24 down. Using this technique. Vivid could use the same leg sprites over and over again, even though Ihe main character may well be waving his hands around like a demented karate expert.
Obviously this technique can't always be used, but the saving in memory when it can be used is tremendous.
As well as the main sprite images, you also need to create a mask for each, w hich is basically a blacked out representation of the sprites. It's often best lo add an extra pixel around the borders of the mask so that when ihe sprite is overlaid on top of the mask, an outline is formed around the sprite. This can help to separate the main character from the background when ihe two use similar colours.
27 FEBRUARY 1992 The backgrounds for games like First Samurai aren't w hat they appear. You may think they are simply huge images held in memory, but surprisingly they are built up from blocks in a similar manner to a jigsaw.
However, unlike a jigsaw, game backgrounds are often built using the same piece over and over again. If you wanted your background to consist of a brick w all.
Although ihe wall appears to be hand-drawn, it could easily be constructed using a single 16 by 16 pixel block pasted over and over again.
Similar to the background map is the edge of road" map which is used to determine what sprites can walk on. What's solid, what you can jump through and what you can climb. The edge of road map is similar to the background map as it too is made up of blocks, but you can't sec them. To slop the main spnte from floating in mid-air. The blocks that the edge of road map uses are considerably smaller than the blocks used bv the background map.
With all those graphics ready, here’s how the main game loop would run. First, move the main character.
Second, see if he's triggered anything off. Third, draw the screen: backgrounds then sprites. Fourth, check the player's status: has energy gone below zero? Then you're ready to do it all again.
IF YOUR BRAIN can't stretch to the complexities of assembly language, the next best thing is undoubtedly Mandarin's AMOS, an absolutely superb BASIC-like programming language that combines the power of assembler with the ease of use of good old BASIC.
From day one. AMOS was designed with games in mind and as a result it can handle virtually every aspect of writing arcade games.
You want sprites whi . .ing around the screen at break neck speeds'? You've got it!
You want to scroll the screen smoothly?
You've got it! You want to build up game maps just like the professionals? You got it!
You want the bouncers to dress in pink? Er... well. AMOS can handle nearly everything.
If the thought of coding even in AMOS reduces you to a quivering wreck, then there is another option. Palace's Shooi-Em-Up WHERE TO GET WHAT YOU NEED AMOS BASIC, also known as the AMOS Interpreter, is published by Mandarin Software, now also known as Europress Software, and costs £49.95. Europress' number is 0625 859333. Another useful addition to the program is the AMOS compiler, which translates your AMOS programs into machine code for you. Making them run considerably faster as well as turning them into stand-alone games which you can then easily pass on to your friends.
Construction Kit (SEUCK to its friends) is a simple step-by-step kit that lets you create simple vertically-scrolling shoot-em-ups along the lines of Battle Command and Hybris.
It's hardly on a par with the power of AMOS and it's starting to look rather long in the tooth these days, but it is no longer produced by the manufacturers so you can pick it up surprisingly cheaply. It's a worthwhile purchase for anyone who wouldn't know an opcode from a bag of fish-and-chips.
II1SJ MAP DESIGNER Anyway, let's get down to the business of writing a game. We've used AMOS as the example language because it is by far the most popular and most powerful package available that can handle the job. Basically it's BASIC programming, but AMOS includes a number of tools rather like the Editors that games professionals use. Let's see how it works... Ionce you've decided upon the type of game that you wish to write, the First thing you must do is design the sprites that will be used within your game. To make life nice and easy, AMOS comes complete with its own sprite editor
program which can be loaded as an accessory within the main AMOS program. This powerful utility can be used to create what AMOS calls 'sprite banks', which are groups of sprites.
Like the programmers at Vivid Image, it's very important to take into account what colours you can use for sprites and what colours are to be used by the background. 32- colour sprites look nice, but they're not really that practical unless you intend leaving the background blank.
LOOOOO 4900 SPRITE DESIGNER nannonoii Writing arcade games the a easy way There’s no easy way to learn to program. A game-making kit can help, but your best bet is to start with the simple but powerful programming language AMOS, as Jason Holborn explains.
2 As we've already discussed, professional programmers incorporate backgrounds into their games using a system which splits the background into blocks. AMOS can use this technique too. Thanks to a powerful utility called Total AMOS Map Editor TAME).
Tame allows you to cut either 16-by-l6 or 32-by-32 pixel blocks out of a standard IFF image (like a Deluxe Paint picture) and then place them down into a background map.
Reusing blocks where necessary. Obviously you'll need to have a paint package to prepare the IFF image that Tame works on, but the rest of the work is handled for you.
FEBRUARY 1992 The current release of AMOS doesn't support Tame map files, but you can still take advantage of this powerful facility by ripping the Tame routines out of the AMOS demo game Magic Forest, The authors of Tame intend to produce an extension to AMOS that will build this facility into AMOS BASIC.
(5 games programming UP AT THE ARCADE!
Arcade games owe Iheir existence to coin-ops like Space Invaders. Delender. Donkey Kong and Pac Man. Their game style and presentation varied but they all stressed reaction speed and tactics. This blend proved an Instant hit as it stressed both physical and mental dexterity. With the rise of home computers, the game people wanted to play were those of the arcades.
With the rise ot home computing a new breed of arcade game grew up. Those written directly for the computer. They had never been near an arcade in their lives but exhibited all the usual trappings: timing puzzles, dodging enemies, collecting power-ups and continues.
A modern arcade retains all these features and throws in coin-op quality for good measure. A good example of the genre will leave you acting on Instinct, your eyes dazzled, your brain puzzled, your joystick hand aching and dying tor another go.
3 Once all the sprite data and backgrounds for your game have been prepared, the next step is to think about how you'll approach the coding. Obviously it's not really advisable to dive straight in and get coding, so the first thing you must do is to break your game down into separate sections which can then be coded into separate routines. For example, you'll need a routine to move all the sprites, another to redraw the screen, another to check for collisions and so on To start with, though, you need to pull in your sprites using the AMOS LOAD command. This command only needs to be called
once as all the sprites for your game can be stored within a single bank.
4 Guess what comes next? Yes folks, once again we need a double buffered screen.
Even if you're using hardware sprites only, it's still worth using a double buffered screen if any section of the background image changes.
Of course if it doesn't, then you can get away without double buffering, but it's very unlikely that you wouldn't use blitter objects simply because of their flexibility.
Using the Tame handling routines we stole from Manic Forest, we now need to draw' the background in our spare screen. Once this is done, any bobs that we are using have to be drawn in. This is achieved using the BOB command which not only draws in the bob. But can also be used to move the bob simply by specifying new X and Y co-ords for the bob's position on-screen.
5 So far we've got our background and bobs to appear on the screen, but we now need to actually breathe life into our bobs. All bobs other than the player's character can be updated simply by feeding new co-ords to the BOB command, but no doubt you'll want to control the player's bob via a joystick.
Implementing joystick control is very simple indeed. All you need do is define two variables which will store the bob's current X and Y position. Then just get the joystick position by reading it with the AMOS system variable JOY. This variable will be a different number according to which way the joystick is pointed. If JOY equals two then the joystick's pointing down so you subtract one from the X variable, if it is three ihcn you add one to the X variable and so on. Furthermore, you can read the joystick fire-button by checking when the value returned by JOY equals four.
6 Collision detection is also very easy to implement within AMOS. AMOS includes five commands which handle this - SPRITE COL (which detects a collision between two hardware sprites!. BOB COL (collision between two bobs). SPR1TEBOB COL (collision between a single sprite and one or more bobs). BOBSPRITE COL (collision between a single bob and one or more sprites) and SET ZONE (which defines a rectangular zone anywhere on the screen which can be checked to see if a sprite or a bob has come into collision w ith it).
In most games you will be primarily interested in the BOB COL command, although the SET ZONE command can also be used when you wish the player's sprite to interact with the background.
7 One very powerful feature of AMOS which very few AMOS users seem to exploit is AMAL. AMOS' powerful interrupt- driven animation language. AMAL can be particularly useful when writing games as it can be used to handle some of the more mundane tasks under interrupt, leaving you with far more processor time at your disposal.
Under interrupt just means the computer runs off and does it on its own. For example, such things as hardware scrolling or the movement of computer-controlled sprites can be implemented using AMAL. Often resulting in a much faster game.
As a general rule, if you think a routine could be implemented under AMAL. Then do so. Programming in AMAL may not be particularly enjoyable (the AMAL instruction set is hardly user-friendly), but a much faster frame rate will be your reward.
8 Now all that remains is to add the actual gamcplay into your AMOS game. Even writing a game using AMOS may seem like an almost impossible task, but you'll be surprised just how easy AMOS makes it. As always, the key is to break your game down into steps.
This way. You can concentrate on specific pans of your game without getting overwhelmed w ith the complexities of the game as a whole. Of course this tutorial has rather simplified the whole process of writing a game in AMOS, but the foundations are there for you to build upon.
FEBRUARY 1992 Using AMOS is undoubtedly one of the simplest ways to get into proper games programming, this is simply because so much of the work is done for you. You can add such things such as interrupt-driven music to your games with just a couple of commands, without having to worry about setting up hardware interrupts and all the other kinds of techie mumbo-jumbo that the professionals have to cope with.

CBM AMIGA BECAUSE IT SQUEEZES (he maximum oul of the machine. 3D coding is a compclitivc and very prestigious area of programming. One of the most proficient of 3D developers is Bristol-based Hie Assembly Line.
We asked key 3D coders Andy Beveridge (Cybercon
111) and Adrian Stevens (Intcrphase) to describe how you would go
about creating a 3D game from scratch.
The programmers give away their secrets The Assembly Line on 3D 3D games are the most complex to write, but the ideas behind it are fairly simple. We asked The Assembly Line, famous for 3D classics like Interphase and Cybercon III, to explain how it's done.
All the objects - alien space craft, buildings, furniture in a room - are made up of flat shapes called "polygons’. Each one is stored in the memory as numbers that define the X. Y and Z co-ordinates of each comer of the object. For example, a square would have four, one for each comer, each made up of three values that define the point’s X. Y and Z position in 3D space.
All 3D objects are made up of these Bat polygon shapes: a cube is composed of six squares, positioned so that the edges meet. And you make up your whole 3D world this way. This side of 3D programming is very straightforward for anyone who did co-ordinates at school, the difficult bit is turning these imaginary 3D objects into what you see on the screen, which is two-dimensional.
* *3D programming is straightforward if you did co-ordinates at
school, the difficult bit is turning imaginary 3D objects
into what you see on the screen.** The first step in
programming a 3D game is preparing a ’polygon filler’. This
draws horizontal lines across the screen. When you’ve turned
your 3D polygons into 2D shapes and put them on the screen,
your polygon filler can fill them in so that they are solid.
Right, let’s get to the heart of the matter: turning 3D polygons into 2D shapes. It involves two steps. The first step is to work out how an object looks from the player's point of view. The second is to apply 'perspective' to the polygon, so that it gets smaller as it gets further away: this is where your 3D shape becomes 2D. How’s it done? It's just pure maths.
The technique the Assembly Line use to work out the wewpoint is multiply each co-ordinate by a matrix.
Where does the matrix come from? Well, when you stew a 3D object defined by X. Y and Z co-ords, you may not necessarily view it from the same angle every time. What you do is define a matrix (remember matrices from your old maths books!) Which represents the rotation you apply to this shape, so that it looks right to your eye. You end up with a new set of 3D co-ords which are effectively 3D co-ords relative to your position. Rather than relative to a fixed position.
Adding perspective to 3D objects is quite simple once you know how. Because you want your 3D objects to appear smaller when you arc further away from them, all you have to do is to divide the X and Y co-ords for your polygon by its own Z co-ord. Resulting in smaller X and Y values.
If you think about it, this is a simple enough idea: the further from an object you are. The greater the value of Z will be. The greater the value of Z. the smaller your X and Y will be when they’re divided by it. So the smaller the object will seem to be.
As you’re moving away from an object, each time you divide X and Y by Z. the X and Y coords will decrease because the Z co-ord is increasing. Simple eh?
Now you've got polygons which arc 2D (they only have X and Y values) and have perspective applied to them, you're almost ready to get them drawn on the screen. But there's one more important step: the Painter Algorithm. This is used to sort the objects into rendering priority - ie. The objects which are further aw ay from the player's location are drawn first.
This can often result in the program having to draw over the top of an object it has already drawn, but this is the fastest way of working. If you tried to write a routine that only drew what the player could see. It would slow' the game down tremendously. You never see the computer drawing objects which arc behind other objects because - like most other games - 3D games rely on a technique called ’double buffering’, to reduce flicker. This means the computer holds two copies of the play screen in memory at once. While it's displaying one. It starts work building up the second in the spare
screen. Once the screen is rendered, it then displays it and starts redraw ing the first.
35 FEBRUARY 1992 As you get close to a 3D object, it's impossible to view the entire object on the screen. For example, when you're far away from a person, you can sec all of them but as you walk nearer, you only sec the top half of them. To stop everything going haywire when this happens, you need ’a clipping routine'. This decides what can't be seen within the screen display and ’clips’ it off. Forming a nice, rectangular screen display.
Another important routine that you'll need is a polygon sorter. If you were to view a cube, you'd never be able to see all six of its faces: three is the most you'd ever sec. A sorter routine decides which faces you can see.
Removing the need to draw those that you can't. In the case of our cube, this would cut the processing time in half as only three of its six faces need to be drawn.
The simple way to do this is to define all the points for a given face so they run clockwise. Once they have been translated into 2D. If they still run clockwise, then you can see that face, if they don't, then there's no need to draw that face because it can't be seen.
The techniques are complex, and if you want to read more, flick back to AF 23. But even the pros don’t start from scratch each lime. Over the page you can find out how to take advantage of someone else's hard work, and use it to make your own 3D game the easy way!
SOMETHING THAT IS as processor-intensive as 3D games ideally needs the speed that assembler provides, but that doesn't mean that you need to have a degree in mathematics and an intimate knowledge of the 68000 to write a 3D game. Anyone can get in on the act.
Writing 3-D games the easy way By far the simplest 3D game creator is Incentive's 3D Construction Kit. A powerful DIY games creator based around the successful Freescape system that was pioneered within their own game titles. Anyone who has played Castle Master. Total Eclipse or Darkside will have seen Freescape in action and the 3D Construction Kit allows you to put this fascinating 3D system to work within your own unique games.
For AMOS owners, Europrcss have come up with AMOS 3D. An extension to AMOS that adds the power of 3D to AMOS's command set without having to worry about the technicalities involved. Designed and written by Voodoo Software (they of Xiphos fame).
AMOS 3D is perhaps the most powerful 3D game creator yet devised for Joe Public's use.
This quick tutorial is based around AMOS 3D.
But it's equally possible to produce similar results within the 3D Construction Kit with the added benefit that you don't need to get your hands dirty writing program code.
AMOS 31) is a language extension to AMOS that adds new commands to the AMOS instruction set, allowing complete control over 3D objects. AMOS 3D actually consists of two separate modules - the language extension itself and a powerful object modeller which is used to create the objects that will inhabit your 3D world. Europress claim that you could create StarGlider 3 with it, but let's sec what it's actually capable of.
Working with 3D may sound very complicated. But AMOS 3D has made this previously difficult pursuit into absolute child's play. Go on. Have a go for yourself - I think you too will be surprised just how easy to use AMOS 3D really is! Here's how it works... The first step is to design the actual 3D objects that will inhabit your 3D world.
This is achieved using a very nicely presented object modelling program. Objects are constructed by building them up from a set of four 3D graphic primitives. Primitives are basic shapes: rectangles, pyramids and so on.
Each object can be constructed from up to eight primitives, but this limitation can be bypassed by taking advantage of AMOS 3D's surface texture facility, which allows you to add patterns to any face of a 3D primitive, giving the illusion of a far more complex object.
1 FEBRUARY 1992 2 Once all the objects have been safely saved off to disk, it's time to enter good old AMOS. Like 'real' 3D games, it's best to use double buffering as it cuts out any flickering that may occur each time the display is updated. So. Before you do anything, you want to tell AMOS that you want to use double buffering by adding the DOUBLE BUFFER command to the section of code that sets up your game's screen display.
If you ever wanted to write your own 3D game but couldn't face the mathematics, Jason Holborn offers two alternatives: a ready-made game creator that gives you the power of the famous Freescape system, or a programming language that works a bit like a 3D graphics package.
You'll no doubt want to add a background (the horizon, for examplel and you can do this using the 'Td BACKGROUND' command.
Backgrounds take a while to draw, so it's best to limit your background to as few colours as you can gel away with. 3D objects really come alive when placed against a background.
3 So your screen display is ready, what we now need is some 3D objects to work (play?) With. They arc held on disk, so you will need to load them into AMOS using the Td LOAD’ command. This doesn’t actually display them - it merely pulls them into memory and tells AMOS where they can be found.
The next step is to define your position in 3D space and the position of any objects either as local (to your position in 3D space, that is or world co-ords. World is by far the easiest method, but local can be handy w hen you want to have 3D objects to act according to your position (an enemy plane, for example).
Once you've successfully loaded them, all that remains is to display them. Because the Td LOAD' command only supplies a pointer to a 3D object, it can be displayed on-screen as many times as you want removing the need to define separate data for each object - you could, for example, have a fleet of tanks all of w hich use the same object data.
AMOS allows you to have a maximum of 20 objects on-screen at one time, each of which must be defined using the ’Td OBJECT' command. This also tells AMOS where in 3D space the object is to be situated, expressed as a set of 3D co-ords (X. Y and .). All that now remains is to draw the objects into the hidden screen and then swap the screen to make your 3D objects visible. This is achieved using 'Td REDRAW' and SCREEN SWAP'. You should now see your 3D objects in all their glory.
JOURNEY TO ANOTHER DIMENSION 3D games came ol age with 16-blt technology, as they were the tirst machines that were really able to competently handle the complex maths at the necessary speed. Their appeal comes from the tact that a complete world can be modelled lo suit the designer. This technology has traditionally been used tor flight simulations, but is now beginning to break down the generic barriers, with games like Cybercon 3. These games don't look as pretty as the Hat 2D sprite' games, because all the objects have to be created trom flat polygons. What they otter though. Is the
chance to pllotdrive vehicles that you'd never be allowed anywhere near In the real world.
4 Unfortunately, our 3D objects aren't actually doing a lot at the moment. In fact, they're doing nothing at all. Obviously you'll want to make things a tad more exciting by moving them about. AMOS 3D supplies a number of commands which w ill allow you to move your objects about, bui the main two are 'Td ANGLE' and 'Td MOVE' (or 'Td MOVE' REL). 'Td ANGLE' simply rotates an object on a set of axes based on the centre of the object. On the other hand. 'Td MOVE' moves the object in 3D space.
5 But what happens if you want to move yourself within 3D space? Well. AMOS 3D can handle this too. Although the 'Td OBJECT' command only allows you to define 20 objects, AMOS 3D actually handles 21.
That extra object is you - or at least your viewpoint. Simply by using exactly the same movement commands as you used in step four but telling them to act on object 0. You can move your viewpoint around in 3D space.
Flic 'Td OBJECT' command will not rotate your viewpoint though, therefore you’ll always be looking in the same direction. To rotate your viewpoint, you simply need to use the 'Td ANGLE' command to change the 'attitude' of your viewpoint.
6 So far we arc able to move around in 3D space, but what happens when you walk into another object? At the minute all that will happen is that you'll walk straight through the object as if it wasn't there, but you can make your solid 3D objects truly solid by checking for collision detection.
The collision detection system used by AMOS 3D is based around the theory of zones which is best thought of as an invisible spherical forccficld that surrounds the objects that you wish to keep track of. Zones are defined using the 'Td SET ZONE' command and you can cheek for collision between zones using the 'Td COLLIDE' command.
7 speed is of the essence within a 3D game and this becomes doubly true when working with AMOS 3D. If you've got 3D objects surrounding you. You won't always be able to see all of them, so it's worth checking which can be seen and which can't. If the object can't be seen, then kill it. The command which lets you check whether an object is visible or not is Td VISIBLE.
8 What we now have is the workings of a 3D game. The actual gameplay is entirely up to you. But it's very simple indeed to get things such as flight combat simulators up and running using the powerful commands that AMOS 3D provides. Say. For example, you wanted to fire a missile at a moving object, all you would have to do is to get the position and range of the object you are firing at using the 'Td BEARING' command. Using the 'Td ANGLE' and 'Td MOVE" commands, you could then have your missile follow an object until it finally impacts producing an explosion (an animated a bob). 1) FEBRUARY

cx 3 3 SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS ARE usually a pcrceplive lot. But in
the case of the adventure creator, they've failed miserably
to provide Amiga owners with the kind of utilities that other
computer users have been using for years. Take Incentive's
Graphic Adventure Creator (GAC). For example. Despite the fact
that it was released for both the Commodore 64 and the Atari
ST. Incentive have remained unwilling to produce an Amiga
version.
Oxxi Aegis have spotted an obvious gap in the market, that other developers seem unable to fill, and they have come up with the goods in the shape of Visionary, a powerful adventure-quilling utility that Aegis claim can handle just about any adventure-writing task you wish lo throw at it.
Professionally-produced adventure game creators have been a little thin on the ground. Now Oxxi Aegis have come up with the goods in the shape of a brand- new adventure-making system.
Jason Holborn ventures forth... Visionary Adventure game creator ¦ £59 ¦ Aegis From first impressions this claim certainly seems to be true - the two demo games that are bundled with Visionary are easily of commercial quality, which certainly seems to bode well for anyone who wishes to create adventures without getting their hands dirty with such monstrosities as C and assembler.
M CD 73 C - ¦o NJ Visionary arrives on three disks (two of which contain the two demo games) with two rather bulky manuals. The first manual details the operation of Visionary while the second is a more advanced guide for those wishing to get the very most from Aegis' new baby.
These manuals certainly make pretty heavy reading, but you'd belter be prepared to put in a few hours just studying them as there's absolutely no way you'll be able to use Visionary without them.
Why is this? Well, the truth of the matter is that Visionary isn't exactly what we all expected it to be. Visionary is actually a programming language optimised for the production of adventure games - think of it as the AMOS of adventures if you like.
So what does this mean in layman's terms?
Well, as any AMOS programmer will tell you.
There's no way that you'll be able to chum out a hit game in your first few days with the package. Not only do you have to learn how Visionary does its stuff, but you've got an almost completely new command set lo wade through. Time for shock number two - Visionary is completely CLI-based. All the programs that make up the Visionary development environment are run from the CLI.
Therefore you've got to know at least the basics of AmigaDOS to even get started with Visionary. The Visionary development environment consists primarily of two programs - a two-pass compiler and a linker (no. It's not Blink). Apart from a few extra little bits and pieces, this is all you gel for your money.
VISIONARY STEP-BY-STEP As we've mentioned above, Visionary is actually a programming language, therefore getting a decent adventure up and running takes some time. Here's how It's done.
1 Before you even switch on your Amiga, the first thing you must do to is to plan your adventure by drawing a map of all the locations within it, and remember to keep in mind at all times what the player must da to complete your odventure game.
Each different location must then be clearly linked and any of the movable objects placed in their storting position.
2 Once you know what you're trying to achieve, the next step is to write the Visionary source code for your oclventure. It's well worth writing the game In steps, compiling your code after each step to make sure that what you have actually written works properly.
To start with, you wont to enter all the map data into Visionary complete with the descriptions for each room and then test thot you con move around the map using the links you hove drown in.
You also have to create an .ADV file that teUs the compiler the file names of the other source files and other such import ont information including things like the start location of your adventure.
Once this is done, you can then move on to the more complex task of putting in the objects and the puzzles within your game. This is by for the most time consuming task.
So how do you go about creating an adventure? The first step is to write the source code to your adventure using a conventional text editor like Cygnus Ed. Save the source to disk and then compile it using VCOMP.
Visionary's compiler. Providing it compiles without errors (which is unusual), you then pass the output (the object module) to VLINK, Visionary's Linker. Once your adventure has compiled and linked, it is effectively a standalone program which can be copied and distributed to your heart's content (as long as you credit Aegis within your program!).
Unlike most languages. Visionary programs don't consist of just a single source file.
? SENSE OF ADVENTURE Adventures started out as text-only games where players Interacted via a parser. These were massively irritating and would tie forever coming up with messages like "You cannot carry the South". As machines became more powerful so did the form adventures took. Now it is wide ranging genre of many different forms. There are First Person Perspective games (Knightmare). Graphic adventures (Monkey Island) and text adventures (Suspicious Cargo). Whatever their form though, they all stress methodical exploration, where objects are collected and used at specific points. They
are not speed dependant but require constant analysis of your kit and situation.
Each aspect of the game is split into its own discrete file that defines everything the compiler and linker needs to know. Each of these files must have the correct file name extension if the compiler is to recognise them.
The most important of these is the .rooms file, which defines the map data for your adventure. Each location in your adventure must lie defined separately with its own unique label. Structured in a similar manner to an AmigaBASIC subroutine, each room definition must contain important facts about a room, including which exits are available and what happens when the player enters the room.
The objects that inhabit the rooms within your adventure are defined within a separate objects (.obj) file. In tum. There are two types of objects - non-movable objects and movable objects - both of which have to be defined within separate files. Non-movable objects are things that the player can examine but can't actually move (the ground, for example) and movable objects are things that the player can phy sically pick up (a key. For example).
At the very simplest level, an adventure must consist of two files - the .rooms file and a .adv file. The .adv file is the file that lies all the other files together and is also used to set up variables and make a few general-purpose definitions. This is the file that the compiler processes, passing on to others via definitions set up within this file.
Visionary adventures aren't just restricted to text. Using its very powerful screen buffers facility, you can create anything from a simple graphic adventure along the same lines as Magnetic Scrolls' The Pawn, to a completely graphic-based adventure like FTL's Dungeon Master. Aegis have included demos that demonstrate the two types of adventure that it is possible to create within Visionary. The Dungeon Mi sfcr-like game that comes with Visionary is particularly good, matching Dungeon Master feature for feature.
You can also incorporate IFF sound effects and even MED song modules into your adventures with ease, giving them a professional finish. Visionary provides all the commands you need to handle these, leaving you to worry about the mechanics of your game. Despite this, you're still left with a fair bit of work. For starters, if you decide to split the screen (a picture at the top and text at the bottom), then it's up to you to handle most of the work involved in maintaining the screen display.
T here's no douhting it's power, but I can't help thinking Aegis haven't really made the process of writing adventure games that much simpler. With powerful Basics like AMOS now commonly available, even the greenest of coders could knock out a half decent adventure in time, complete with all the aesthetic features that Visionary provides.
Another problem is the rather long-winded nature of Visionary's source code format.
Having to write about five separate source files before you can gel anything running is a little over the top and can only lead to confusion. What I would have liked to have seen is a few utilities that make the process of defining the basic structure of your adventure far less time consuming - a map editor, for example.
Such a utility could generate the bare bones of your adventure as source code, leaving you to put the meat onto those bones.
FEBRUARY 1992 I'd like to say that I'm impressed by Visionary, but I'd be lying. As Incentive's GAC has proved, there are far simpler ways of producing adventurers in a fraction of the time that it takes with Visionary. The potential for a great utility is undeniably there, but Visionary has to be made far more user friendly before anyone other than hardened coders will take it seriously. Roll on Visionary 2! H 3 Once your source code Is complete, all that remains for you to do is to compile and link your game into an executable. Don't be scared off by this - Visionary's compiler and linker
are by far the simplest to use programs of their type you're Rkely to find on any machine. There's no complex command line arguments to enter, just pass them the file name of your adventure and Visionary does the rest.
4 OK, I know that it's pretty simple enough stuff, but this text-based adventure was knocked up in little more than lust a couple of hours. Once the lure bones of your gome are complete, you can then start thinking about adding graphics and sound effects.

Met 65% The programmers give away their secrets Tony Crowther on Adventure Games So you want to create your own role-playing adventure but don't know where to start? Don't worry - it's a common problem according to one of Britain's top coders: the man behind Captive and Knightmare... THE FIRST THING to do is think of a raw plot - n usually ends up nothing like the finished game anyway. The best thing to do is sit dow n and try to come up w ith as many different, simple elements as possible.
It's almost like playing with Lego - you get till these little ideas and then you build a game from them.
In Knightmare. For example. I put some trains in which rattle along a piece of track from one end to the other. Then I realised I could use them for something else, like moving platforms. So there's now bits w here you stand on a moving train and throw objects from it onto pressure pads, and there's another bit where you jump off a train, through a gap and land 011 another train. That’s how you start building your game.
FEBRUARY 1992 One thing I've discovered about RPGs is that there are two wavs of playing. You can make all the monsters easy to kill and the logic problems really hard, but people get bored with those. I've done it the other way around: the monsters are really hard so it can take ages 10 hack 'em to pieces but you do get a really satisfy ing feeling. And then you get the sense of achievement of solving a puz lc aftcr-
* *Making up an adventure You can make a game gradually harder,
so that people leant things and feel like they've gained some
experience. In Eye Of The Beholder, by the time you've played
the whole game through there's no sense of progression
Knightmare 'v basically a series of logic problems.
Game is almost like playing with Leao - you get all these little iaeas in your head and then you build a game from them.** With all these simple ideas you can bolt them together and make things fairly complex, Knightmare has lots of what I call 'toys' to play w ith It's stuff you can do if you can’t tackle part of the adventure: peashooters, chainsaw s. tennis racquets and balls, dice and so on.
The real elements are flexible, plus people can relate to natural things far easier. Like water, you can't cross it unless you travel in a boat, so you have the problem of getting a boat, and then getting it in the water!
I like to lead people along the wrong lines to keep them busy: there's a big room in Knightmare with a monster in it. If you kill the monster it drops a twig.
Now - the whole room s full of pressure pads, if you drop the twig on the right one. It does something.
There's an inv isible wall with a single pressure pad on it so people will think that that's the one - it's difficult to find, so that must be it. But it’s not - it's another pressure pad in the middle of the room. You have to fool people, but you have to be careful not to confuse them, otherwise they w ill just give up.
It's important to build your characters from statistics that have something to do w ith the gameplay. And make them as real as possible - like injured or tired characters can't carry as much and aren't as efficient.
Then people can believe that they 're playing an adventure of reality rather than just a game.
Wards. One game which used this really well was Bloodwyeh.
Whereas the Eye Of The Beholder's monsters were too simple to kill.
What I also like to do is make sure that the actual types of creatures don't actually get any harder to kill - instead I'll introduce a new creature.
You also need some nice monsters, good expressions and stuff. Make the monsters behave like they look. They should have hit points and they need two speeds of thinking: one for movements around the rooms, and the other for their attacking speed.
Spells are always fun. In Knighlmare there about
48. And every one reacts differently to each monster.
For example, the weakest spell could divide one monster's hit points in half and double or quadruple another's. This way. Not only do you hav e to work out how to use the spells, but you have to work out w hich spells you can use where.
It has to be possible to map the game - and you hav e to make it worth mapping. Cluws Strikes Back was Iiki difficult to map. Think carefully about the elements you use to build up the map and set titles for each clement. I start with one element and build the map from there. The pressure pads for example can activate different commands: they could open a door, change a floor into a wall, or launch a fireball.. Don't let people into dead ends. If there's a problem which can't be solved, always give people a back entrance. For example, you could use a teleporter could and find yourself in
an empty room and realise that you needed to bring a certain object w ith you if you wanted to carry on. So you're stuck, and that's wrong.
Pressure pads are good. They 're simple but you can do complex things with them: have four ways of activating a pressure pad for example. Or y ou could place heavy enough objects on the pressure pad to activate it.
The object could hold the pressure pad down, w hich could become a puzzle in itself. Finally, you could activate it w ith a specific object - a key if you like.
If you're using weapons, think of other uses for them - or have objects which aren't weapons but could be used like them. The same with food - think of new ways of getting it. You could get it from killing a monster. Which could even be poisonous, but you'd obviously need a spell to cure yourself afterwards."
Interacting with doors is something that's always piddled us off w ith RPGs. Like. Eye Of The Beholder tried to copy Dungeon Master, but they missed out all the good bits. In Eye Of The Beholder you can't shut a door on a monster in the doorway, and you end up spending too much time running away. You can't go w rong with Dungeon Master as a reference source. It took two years to design and it shows. But whatever you take from it. Try and improve upon it."
Let your imagination run riot. Look at everyday things for inspiration and make them fit the plot. I try not to copy any thing directly. But I like new things or improving on existing stuff. Experiment and put what you like in. So long as it's fun.

Infogrames have captured the coveted Disney licence and are
opening with a series of educational aids like Mickey's ABCs
and 123s. Leading the push on the entertainment side will be a
new Roger Rabbit game Hare Raising Havoc.
All the new Disney titles will be released sequentially during 1992.
More cricket frolics arc on the way in time, hopefully. For the World Cup (yes there's another sporting World Cup) from Soundware. The folks who put out this summer's International Cricket. It's currently called Official World Cup Cricket but that may change if certain player endorsement negotiations go as planned. Borderline stuff: more as it happens!
Team Yankee II is on track for release in mid-1992. It's set in the Pacific and is a World War III tank bash that will have the same balance of strategic planning and upfront shooting that it did the first time around. Team Yankee is one of Empire's mosi successful games ever and the follow up looks potentially as good.

* d got* Elvira II - The Jaws of Cerberus Publishe' Accolade
Release February 1992 Elvira has gone missing and a 60 foot
tall, three-headed dog. Standing in the middle of Black Widow
Film Studios might have something to do w ith il! Not only
this, bui a ghostly image of Elvira is hanging around telling
you she's been kidnapped - but that looks a bit suspect too.
This sets the scene for a bone-chilling trek into a
shock-horror land of giant spiders' webs, misty graveyards and
deserted Victorian mansions. And waiting for would-be
rescuers 10 explore are three film sets.
The original Elvira won the Role-Playing Game of the Year' award in the States, bui the creators of this gruesomely Gothic game aren't about to rest on their laurels. They've stripped down the game's system, tightened up the best bits and radically redesigned everything else, to ensure that Elvira II is superior in every respect. More special effects have been added, the poinl-and-click interface has been radically reworked and the magic system has been revamped.
"An experience synonymous with a first class horror movie." Is how Mark Wallace, producer of Elvira II. Describes the game. From what's available so far it looks like he could well be right, but w ith you doing the dy ing and screaming. If the plan comes together, then maybe we'll find out just why semi-clad people go into unlit rooms filled w ith nutters, why no one ever leaves the house when the blood starts dripping from the ceiling and why ordinary folk think that they can defeat a rather large, three-headed dog w ith an attitude problem.
M"G| Black Crypt Publisher Electronic Arts Release February 1992 Sixty-four colour half-brile mode games are a rare breed, but that's not only w hat makes Black Crypt special. It's a 12 dungeon romp that promises everything you'd expect from a first-person perspective adventure game - keys, traps, monsters etc - plus a fistful of brand new slants on the established formula. There's one underwater level, a Medusa area lo explore and the monsters can learn spells too!
Might and Magic III Publisher US Gold Release Early 1992 the usual platform Another Spielberg interpretation Robin 'Good is being said about FEBRUARY 1992 First outings can be very tense affairs, but Nile Time should have few worries w ith their debut game title Cavitas. It's basically a shoot-cm-up adventure game where you sail around a scries of caverns, in search of vital components for your mothership. It promises to be an impressive debut with HAM and half-britc modes (what was that about them being rare?) Being used to beef-up each of the sis levels that consist of 100 screens.
At last the game of the second best film ever made is almost ready. The Godfather games have been divided into an Indiana Jones style, w ith both an arcade and a full blow n adventure on the way. The arcade adventure is a non-stop shooting match, plus a recreation of the scenes that made the films X-rated. Gloriously moody graphics set a 1940s tone, but the gamcplay will be state-of-the-art shooting action.
Forget art. Let's fight! Green Beret did it well, now Fireforce wants to take the mantle of the top sideways scrolling shoot out. Controlling a muscle-bound Gl type, you have to dodge the bullets and keep healthy, as progress is made- through each fire-zone. You want to ban the AK? Fireforce has got 10 of them stashed away and a case of hand grenades!
Cavitas Publisher lUite Time Games Release January 1992 Fireforce Publisher Electronic Zoo Release Imminent The Godfather Publisher US Gold Release January 1992 t _l_ -I i ___ ' _- If! I The man in the hat is back and there isn't even a movie! Written and designed by top Hollywood script writer Hal Barwood it promises to keep the epic feel. With the Holy Grail and Ark of the Covenant already in the bag. Atlantis is all the Lucasfilm team have left to shoot for. They seem to have gone for real style, judging by the PC demos.
Role play ing dungeon romps traditionally have had a fixation with the number four, but that is all about to change because Might and Magic doubles up to let you have a party of eight!
That's not all it has though, to allow it to stand up and be counted because supporting the game are a series of cinematic sequences to add a movie-like look and feel.
The stunning success of Eye of the Beholder has set the sequel wheels rolling. Version II promises to be bigger, tougher and an altogether tidier hack-and-bash spectacular. With EOTB's reputation, more involved gameplay and Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition rules it's set to make major noise.
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis Publisher US Gold Release Late February 1992 Eye of the Beholder II Publisher US Gold Release January 1992 Another game currently in progress is Image Works' Fire and Ice.
A cutesy platform romp that takes Graftgold (Realms. Paradroid) back to their Ratnhov, Island roots. All platforms and ladders, you'll control a blue dog who has to overcome the demons of fire and ice. The title sets the scene, as the poor lickle pooch has to outwit fiery' bad guys in an Arctic landscape. With the team's cutesy pedigree and the daft plot. Fire and Ice has a real chance of bringing fiendishly new gameplay tricks to this evergreen genre.
Image Works have a movie tie-in. Of sorts, on the way. With Apocalypse. Based on a toolcd-up helicopter (now. 1 wonder why they called it Apocalypsel The best film ever!) That has to fly Choplifter-my c missions. The action will focus on trashing the enemy and then landing in hot Lzs to pick up your troops. The graphics arc excellent and its gamcplay should be spiffy. If it follows Choplifler school, which was just straight ahead blasting fun!

The light from the torches only shows a little part of the room, which adds tension and an element of danger to the proceedings. What lays ahead. If you're nervous then throw a torch ahead to illuminate the dank dungeon. But be warned that torches burn out, so use them cautiously.
Shadowlands Publisher Domark Release February 1992 One-player style role-playing games have always been plagued by the 'party' problem of conglomerate adventuring groups. Teque think they've found the solution hiding in the shadows.
Trap-filled dungeon in the dark There's no constant illumination and this drives adventurers. Even in the early stages, deep into the dungeon to find more light. Torches prov ide a circle of light around the carrier, hut have the tendency lo burn down. As the torch withers, so does the light it casts. And you'd better find another quickly or you won’t know whether that black silhouette ahead is a treasure filled chest or a deadly pit.
Using a process now titled Photoscape, the power of each lightsourcc is assessed and represented in concentric circles in brightness.
The lack of light forces the speed of play and supplies an immediate motive. Nervous parties can even throw torches ahead to illuminate unexplored areas of the complex. Tire effect is impressive, adding 'realism' and gameplay.
Face-to-face with the Shadowlands team. You can choose a character look that suits your own designs. While their faces are just cosmetic to the gameplay their vital statistics are not.
Mere you get the chance to generate a squad who are particularly strong in the areas you feel you'll need to beat the bad guys back.
IDmbut ££ 5 ituicik ! Straictl) „ % tijpe name * W »___________ FEBRUARY 1992 Necessity is the mother of inventories. Good back-pack work is needed to cram all the adventurer's kit into their smallish backpacks.
It is easily accessed and it is the game's only sub-screen, so the game plays along with few interruptions.
II you play Dungeon Master, Cluta* Strikes Hack or live of the Heltahler Ihc role-playing poienlial is limited because of the llrsi-person perspeclive iliai ihesc games use. The problem is characters cannot ad independently. They can only act as a group. Tor deeper role play, with individually active party members you have to travel lo the Shadowlands The development leant. Teque.
Have been crafting this fantasy world for a year and it's an isometric land filled w ith previously unthinkable role-playing possibilities, Shadowlands puts a and different perspective on dungeoneenng. Tor starters everything is seen front an isometric perspective nothing new there. Shadow Sorcerer used it but it is how the game utilises this view that liberates the character play. Although you are always part of a four man team in objective, all of the characters can operate in separate locations simultaneously. When united together they can be commanded to ntov c as a k group in the
formation you chose - to speed play along, but they can also work alone. And it's here that it reveals its massive potential.
Virtually every puzzle or problem in Shadow ands stresses individual action. Tor example, a forcibly split party may well be able lo see each other across a chasm but they are unable to unite. The keys that release them can be easily found, one on either side of the pits, but each key's on the wrong side.
Individual members must then find a key and hurl it across the chasm lo their fellows, liven in this simple example, it's easy lo see the devious route the game could lake.
Have you seen the Photoscape light?
I he logistical problems of individuals wandering the halls and corridors are added to the gameplay mix by way of light. If the team's split, then each separate group must have a lightsourcc or they 'll be stumbling around the PLANER 3 intef the Sjuutowkiik ¦ • Graphically. Shadowlands should mix prettiness and practicality. Its refined icon system looks good hut works efficiently. The intuitive basis of ils design is clear and even under duress there’s little chance of contusion. On the ground the drawbacks of isometric 31) are swiftly dispatched. When characters go near objects that
could obscure them from view, then the graphic is changed from solid one into an outline. The solution may smack of expedience as it continually impairs the usual myth, but any decision that favours gameplay over graphics has to be applauded.
Streets of Format Gold?
The preview of Shadowlands feels right, even when it's played at these early stages, anil there's more of its tale yet to tell: the four different sty les of dungeon, the subtle shift away from combat towards intricate puzzles, the scroll based magic system and the world's energy system that allows items to he recharged in an entropy trade off. Teque’s adventure will begin this February, and that's when Screenplay's review party will hurl a torch deep into the dark dungeon corridors lo see il Shadowlands streets really are paved with Format Gold.

As a player he was a siar. As a coach lie look the Oakland Raiders to Superbowl victory. As a TV com- memator he's the official voice of Gridiron lo millions of Americans. As a Sega game, his name has endorsed the biggest-selling I S cartridge ever. Il wasn't Madden's name that sold the American Football sim however, but the quality gameplay it borrowed from the States' toughest sport.
Other games have tried to simulate Gridiron, the most notable of these being Cinemaware's TV Sports Football. Even this good-looking bash however, didn't deliver the tactical depth that makes the sport a powerful meeting of brains and brawn. Now on the Amiga. John Madden looks set to tackle football's gameplay potential onto disk.
Just win baby American football is a sport about territorial advantage. Players have four consecutive attempts (downs) in which to either throw or run the ball forward for a total of 10 yards. To achieve (or if you're defending stop) the 10 yard advance, teams use a mix of skill, brute force and deceit. On each down' one specific play will be tried - cither a run or forward pass
- to gain the yardage. These plays are designed to fool the
opposition into setting out their defence inappropriately for
the offensive move being attempted. The defence have to guess
the next plav and line up to stifle it.
John Madden football brings this level of tactical power, bluff calling and skilled moves to bear. As either defence or offense you are offered a range of set-up options. These can be scrolled through with the joystick and any style of play can be called. When the layout is chosen, then the play from it can then be selected. Once again a scrolling list of options is offered, with three on screen at any one time. To choose play you just flick your joy stick. Although it is never visually confirmed If you’re in the two-plaver mode this means American football Madden style. What makes JM’s grid
iron sim so special is the way it really brings the sport to life.
When passing the quarterbacks are shown their three potential receivers as they try to escape their defenders.
Like the real thing JM's is a game of patience, luck and observation.
John Madden B®® ' ¦ L 8 8 I I Electronic Arts W F Release February 1992 John Madden is a phenomenon to American football fans, and Sega games players. Now it's 'first down and 10' for the Amiga... 57 computer sport, a mix of quick thinking, ad libbed tactics and pure ability.
Red '92 FEBRUARY 1992 This accurate blend of American football's many aspects has ensured Madden's success on the Sega, but the Amiga version won't just be a conversion of a year-old-game. At the time of coding on the Amiga game a second, and improved, version for the Sega entitled Madden '92 is being developed. Many of the new features from the '92 variety has been incorporated into the Amiga variant. For example games can now be played on four different surfaces - grass, snow , astroturf and covered stadium - all of which will have repercussions on the play book your chosen play remains a
secret until the ball is snapped at the line of scrimmage.
Madden is no mere tactical sim though, it brings joystick skill and timing to the game.
As the play starts three w indows open up. Each showing a different receiver who tries to get into position to catch the ball. As the ball flies the receivers can be made to dive for a catch or show a turn of speed once they've caught it.
Running plays can either be left to the Amiga or you can step in to help ball earners av oid an incoming tackle. Defenders can be guided through the opposition line to tackle key players. The plays can even be changed once the lines have been set up (Audible) - helpful if you think the defence have guessed correctly .
A good read Tire 'play ' books of the teams, like their real world counterparts, are huge. Each one has a specific use and look, it's recognising treading) the other team's plav that makes you good at Football. And that's what makes it an ideal All the stats from the NFL 1991 season will be in the game too. So a team's abilities will vary with their performance last year. And if the schedule goes to plan the game will be finished in time for the Superbowl. Allowing Amiga American footballers to test out the two teams fighting for the World Title.

Now they show what they can really achieve!
French graphic adventure experts Delphinc. Made their name with Future Wars. Operation Stealth and Cruise for a Corpse. Now. Using their revolutionary polygon graphics system, they've produced an arcade adventure the like of which has never been seen before. Another World is a cinematic place, flat in tone, but rich in animation. It is a world that requires continuous acts of bravery and daring to survive. It's a world full of strange, deadly creatures that have no concept of mercy.
The Quatermass Experiment Tricky blighters, particle accelerators. One minute you're in front of the world's whizzicst computer, controlling an experiment that would have made Quatermass happy and the next you’ve been transported to an alien world. And as Lester K Chaykin's guide you have to usher him through the ceaseless maze of dangers that make up Another World.
Lester finds a fallen guard's gun which proves to be one of his primary tools in his bid for freedom.
When It's charged up properly the gun can shoot small beams, throw up a shield and also deliver a huge energy blast.
Trouble is that It runs down rather fast and so you'll need to find somewhere that offers a re-charge.
At the end of the intro you're thrown in at the deep end. The desk Lester was sitting at when everything went weird, suddenly materialises in a dark lake. You have to wrench the joystick upwards and guide the confused scientist to the surface. Another World doesn't pull its punches, from the very first screen to the very last. Lester's life is under threat.
FEBRUARY 1992 Let Lester swim too long in the lake and you'll realise just how hostile Another World is. If he doesn't drown first then tentacles snake out from the lake bed searching for their lunch! Swim slowly to the surface and they follow, forcing you to flee the screen.
Out of the frying pan and into the fire!
Running takes you into leeches that can kill with a single bite. Stamp all of these to death and a mountain lion on steroids muscles in. Its glaring white fangs and roar shows that it too is hungry and that it sees you as the day's main meal. That's the pace of Another World, every screen poses a threat, each and very move could be your last.
Another The land that time forgot you to beat. Walls have to be broken open, chasms must be jumped, gunfights survived and friendships formed if Lester is to live.
Another World is not restricted to one style of play. First and foremost in the game's hierarchy comes dexterity tests. The polygon sprite moves slowly but precisely, and to make the most of the character's limited moves Lester is soon captured and imprisoned by one of the local alien tribes. The game begins in earnest as a rival tribe of aliens mount an attack. Amid the chaos and carnage you have to find a way to get Lester out of the prison and then out of danger. From here on in every screen sets a dexterity test or mental puzzle for When these two factors combine, testing both joystick
skill and game logic, then Another World is at its best. You've assessed the problem. Worked out the solution, now it's case of putting the theory into pixel perfect practice.
The illustrated man Another World looks and fools cinomatlc.
At points In the game control Is rested from you and a pre-set sequence kicks In. Here Lester gets an eyeful of the Allen city for the first time and It's law-dropping stuff.
Most of the death sequences are also shown In this way.
Very gruesome, but very good!
Arcade adventures that test these skills are not new, but ones which look this good are rare.
The stunning presentation and unique graphic style grabs you the moment the first picture hits the screen, and then continues to amaze even when you thought the 'wow' factor could wow no more. The graphics are simply superb.
For Another World Delphine have used the same system as Cruise for a Corpse, only this time the characters really do come to life!
There are no sprites, just flat polygons, and if anything, this radical approach provides a more realistic effect than any sprite system could hope. What other joystick game offers World It is the kind of game you want to show your Gran, because it has such a cinematic feel to it.
Fir* fight I Lester had better be In fine fighting form If he wants to flee the prison. Hordes of guards descend upon him the moment he breaks out. Sharp shooting is needed If he's to avoid being turned Into a carbonised skeleton. These remains do make a neat cracking sound when they decay though!
FEBRUARY 1992 (jump, walk. Run. Crouch and two kicks) a whole range of different pitfalls are used.
Kicking the poisonous leeches to death requires a light bout of crouching. Jumps to catch vines must be timed perfectly if you are to avoid the hungry lion, while properly placed footing is essential if you want to clear the chasms Lester comes across.
: On the brainwork side, it doesn't make massive demands, just that you pay attention. It offers clues and training early on. With both the kit and the character. Later, though you're on your own. Only time and much experimentation will tell if you needed to waste a laser blast on that wall or whether your weapon's energy has been sapped by a red herring.
You four different views of the action: normal, cinemascope, vertical and high res?
Lester himself moves with the assurance and style of Prince of Persia. The polygon Lester doesn't have much detail to define him.
But strangely this enhances the realism. His arms swing and he swaggers as he walks.
Lester is a convincing hero. The enemies and monsters are not stereotypes either. There has been as much attention to motion lavished on them as the main star. Even background characters. Who play no part in the game, turn and look when a fight breaks out. The result is animations that look real, are occasionally funny, but frequently awe inspiring.
These graphics would stand proud in a silent world, but Delphine's disk efficient system frees up enough space for some serious music and samples. The lion's roar really sounds like he'd appreciate a meal! The laser beams whine in true Star Wars fashion. The aliens talk in Blade Runmresque ‘city speak' and explosions have a futuristically percussive feel. Combined with sparse but eerie music, this takes Another World into the realms of the truly atmospheric.
The effects don't stop here though. At the beginning of each new load, or change of Continued overleaf perspective, control is surrendered lo cinematic story sequences. These add lo the game's mystery and magic, underlining it's cinematic feel. Delphine have spent two years developing the graphic system and it looks like it's been worth every second.
The pit and the pendulum Delphine's polygon system has the potential to produce a stunning game. Another World almost makes it. But just falls short. The problem is the gameplay. At times it exhibits some exquisite timing-tests, while in others the only clue you get is death! And it is here it falters.
Lester, as the wild card in Another World.
Often triggers whole sequences of events: Indiana Jones or Die Hard style. While fleeing prison Lester has to flood a cave, while he's in it. Naturally this forces some rather nifty exit work on his behalf, leaping spike filled gaps as the subterranean tidal wave chases him down. You know the right moves, but the tight timing ups the stakes and the pressure. Can you do it? There's only one way to find out! This is Another World at its best.
FEBRUARY 1992 At its worst Another World has distinct Space Ace Dragons Lair overtones - great graphics but what was that you said about gameplay? There are instances, where only dying reveals a fatal trap. There's no clue. 110 chance to escape, just certain doom. Another World is structured fairly and offers a reasonable smattering of restart points, but when you have to visit them through no fault of your own. It is irritating as hell. Players deserve warnings, a chance to prevent disaster, not be lured inexorably to their doom.
Another World's perils range from the glorious to the pathetic. The timing and dexterity tests arc supremely exciting moments, accompanied as they are by massively impressive effects.
The unavoidable deaths are as unimpressive as they are annoying, ruining a game that deserves to be a classic.
When worlds collide Look what my gun can do! When used correctly the blaster can throw out high energy bolts that smashes everything, including that bit of rock which holds the entire lake in place.
Maybe that wasn't such a bright idea after all. Any body out there into cave diving, cave surfing, breath holding?
It does prove that Delphine have more to their game design arsenal than a few sly questions and a neat graphics system. This is a major league game - in places. The effects that run through the entire program are individual, bravely defiant of the sprite-based norm. The sounds that surround Another World add depth to the atmospheric power that the strange piccies provide. The animation is observant and convincing adding that 'real feel' to play.
The good work though is almost ruined by overly fatal elements which are unavoidable if you want fo find out what happens at the end.
? GOOD LOOKS OR GAMEPLAY?
Dragon s Lair set Ihe world alight with its graphics and then bored It rigid with appaling gameplay Amiga games have traditionally either been good lookers or good players, rarely both. Now the machine's lull potential is finally being realised, the two are coming together Be wary ol good lookers, and try to find playable demos so that you can tlnd out it they're |ust rolling animations or real games.
And you want to see the end of the game, desperately! That's the problem, it's a game that you madly want to be free of the irritating gameplay problems it stubbornly poses. Yet.
Time and time again it slays you with no chance or choice, then dumps you back further than you wanted lo go.
Another World is a major achievement. It brings Delphine to the fore as major developers in another field of design, it's the kind of game you want to show your Gran, (because it has such a cinematic feel even she'd understand it) and its the kind of game you really wanl to discover for yourself. The approach and results are unique. For all its glory Another World is still a game first, and it is here that it is sometimes found wanting. For the most part it excels, but it fails in a few key gameplay areas. It is worth buying, just for the power of the effects and the sweetness of its finer
game moments. Be warned though, there are times when you'll really begin to hate the French.

Hell's Angels coming on court to beat the crap out of the Bill
and Ben formation basketball- and-dance team. It's a
substitution. This means that the entire team (blue in this
case) has to leave the pitch, er court, in order to console the
outgoing player and pep-talk the new guy.
(ves I know Crystal Palace and Kingston are fab - they also have a large American staff) but there just does not seem to be the same excitement and feeling of participation that you would expect from a good sporting sim.
The figures are just too small, and too weedy to get any real edge on. The joystick controls are so finicky to master that you end up by pointing your player in roughly the right direction and pressing fire in the vain hope that the ball will go somewhere interesting. You can t even commit a personal foul deliberately to relieve the tedium.
Globetrotters Aside from the gameplay or lack of it. Tip Off is weighty with extraneous options. You can play in International. County. Youth. National.
OK. These are the options guys.
Remember, this game is about guts, determination and choosing the right colour for your vest.
I would still defy anyone to sit through the demo game, let alone play a real one.
I eople have been waiting and waiting for Anco to pitch in with another spoiling sim. The Kick Off series played, as they say. A blinder; so surely the next athletic action feast would be just as good? Elements from Kick p and Player Manager are used in Tip Off. These include selecting a squad and altering each player's potential, overhead views, even the packaging looks the same. But somehow the gameplay just isn't there.
FEBRUARY 1992 The game comes as two disks with several options to choose before you get into match play. The most irrelevant is the single-player practice. After loading a few times you are taken to a court where your absurdly long- armed. And solitary, player stands reads to sink a few baskets. It all looks very pleasant. He leaps, he bounds, he carries out complex overhead shots, he passes to no-one in particular, he even wanders out of vision (the only way you know he's still in the gym is by the thumpty-thump sound of the ball on the polished floor). The really strange thing about this
screen is that it has nothing to do with the real gameplay. No w here in the rest of Tip Off do you get the chance to use these skills. You can view this in two ways: it's a pleasant freebie, or it's a waste of disk space.
Crikey, the aim of the practice is to hone your skills and possibly even get your physical coordination into some sense of order. A good start is to look in the right direction, you great tall string of player.
Harlem Onto the real thing. You get to manage and then play with a team of pro-basket chappies.
The management side entails creating a squad and assigning each player a number of attributes from a pool of points. There are 350 points to begin w ith and these have to be split between attributes and skills such as dribbling ability, passing, shooting, pace, jumping, stealing and stamina. Once you have set up your team you get to pick the first stringers and the subs. Then it's on into battle.
Oh dear. Yes the overhead is there, yes there is plenty of motion, and yes some of the players will even lake their shorts off and moon at you. But really, could you be bothered to actually finish a game of four quarters where you can t actually tackle anyone. Gaining and regaining the ball is a matter of luck, you can score from the half-way line and miss from the shooting zone? Maybe it's something to do with the lack of basketball culture in Britain Club, and Club classes. The number of points in your attribute pool affects your choice here.
There are a multitude of controls to get used to. These range from straightforward dribbling, through to slamdunking (make sure you've got a tall player otherwise this turns into slamflunking) and the Bounce pass. The problem is that while playing you don't have time to use any of them. I also defy anyone to come up with an affordable joystick that can cope with the differences between the controls.
Sadly. Tip OftTicks atmosphere, finesse of ganteplav and participatory Hare which would have made it a must of a game for sporting fans. It does try . The sheer number of options vouch for this. But at the end of the day you have to call a time-out and go and do something else instead. Shame!

If the data disk has been aimed at the experienced Lemmings player, then how come the first 20 screens are so easy? Anyone who is worth their lemming-saving salt would be able to do this batch in their sleep!
As soon as the game shifts to the Crazy level things start to gel very hard indeed.
However, by persevering with the Crazy levels (and being a lad lucky) they can be completed... eventually!
Oh No!
Working up to the higher levels introduces another problem. The puzzles on the original game had been carefully worked out and tested. But some of the screens on the data disk are so difficult, they give the impression that some of them were completed in a hurry, probably trying lo beat the Christmas deadline.
This level of complexity unfortunately emphasises some of the game's quirks.
If you dig down a column with a rounded top. Then a small overhang is left - even though you were standing right on top of it. It is also possible to get lemmings stuck in the walls when they turn around on bridges, which makes some levels a pain. And think how frustrating it is when you place a Blocker on a hill only to see the other lemmings walk past because both his feet aren't on the ground!
DMA have tried to make the new screens devilishly difficult (apart from the ridiculously easy Tame levels), and this steep difficulty curse coupled with the annoying quibbles make Oh No! More Lemmings a less interesting prospect than it could be.
Maff Ewans '! FEBRUARY 1992 Crazy. Wild. Wicked and Havoc. On loading the levels it doesn't lake long to notice that all the scenery graphics and tunes have been changed. The general style is similar on many of the screens, involving red-brick towers and metallic obstacles, but some of the new scenery is very different. There are. For example. Rocky caves with writhing patches of weeds, snowy scenes complete with Swiss- chalet shaped exits and surreal landscapes with mounds of bubble-shaped obstacles to overcome. The music has been improved quite a bit. Sounding just as wacky and jolly as
ever, but with a more cleanly-produced feci. Well... apart from the one that sounds like the theme tunc to the TV show Record Breakers'.

Oh No! More Lemmings There can'! Be many Amiga owners lhai don't know about the Lemming phenomenon. At Amiga Formal we first heard of them when Psygnosis approached us about putting a demo of their latest puzzle game on the Christmas Covcrdisk in 1990. We thought nothing of it until the demo finally arrived, at which point all of the Dtcam were instantly hooked! No arcade licence, no film tie-in and no TV cartoon characters were involved, but it went straight to the lop of the software charts.
History repeated itself when we were putting together last month's special Christmas issue. We were pleased to find that we were to carry another Lemmings demo, this time a specially constructed set of four festive levels.
Sure enough, we were all wasting too much time playing this one as well! But what was the reason behind this silly little demo? Well.
DMA Design have put together another 100 levels to challenge Lemmings fans on a data disk at the low price of £19.99, with a stand alone version available for £25.99. Let s Go!
The first major difference (apart from the loading screen) is the new level names. Instead of the usual four sets of Fun. Tricky. Taxing and Mayhem levels, the l(X) new screens arc split into five groups of 20 with the names Tame.

Twentieth Century Fo« Film Corporation A» Rights Reserved 'Academy Award' is a registered trademark and service mark ot the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences T reguard is a very nice man. A very, very nice man. He always pops up just when you need him. To offer, friendly hut cryptic advice in ITV's Knightmare. Now he's changed the format to help game-playing mortals who fancy a crack at the second computer interpretation of this successful TV show. His help is needed, badly. The game is designed around the Captive adventure system and has cracking
credentials, uniting an excellent licence with a proven code. The result is strong, hut once past the titles it has suspiciously little to do with the TV programme.
Captive audience?
Captive players will immediately feel in control of Knight mare. The system that drives the game essentially uses the same icon and keyboard commands as Captive, with improvements and tweaks where necessary.
The four man team can be driven either by clicking on directional icons or keypad combinations. Clicking on anything with the left mouse button, gets or activates it. While the right is employed to initiate party actions. It's a simple system to learn, but offers enough flexibility to fill four huge dungeons with tests of precise control.
Knightmare The four members of the Knightmare team all have different skills and specialities.
Controlled from a cluster of icons they can be clothed, checked and changed to suit any strategy. They've an empty backpack in which to carry the kit they find and two hand 'slots' for those all important items - like weapons.
Unlike Captive, or any other first-person perspective role-playing game, the characters' hands in Knightmare don't just 'use' an object when you click them into action. First of all a click brings up a menu of all the actions possible with that object: knives, for example, offer stab, swing and hack. These can be preset so no delay is encountered when it’s required.
And it's not big or clever to start fiddling about with menus when there's a 10-foot hobgoblin trying to rip out your spleen.
FEBRUARY 1992 Even the magic system is driven in this way. Neatly sidestepping the need for a submenu screen. All spells must come from wands and their menus get larger as the wizard's skills improve. Different wands become available progressively, offering you the chance to cast wilder magic and the designer to ensure magic's restricted where necessary.
Just li|fc weapons, selected spells can be preset. So all you have to watch when 'it' hits the fan is your w izard's remaining magic points.
• i. Immm 4 I ] Step onto the cart and It races off. To stop It
just jump.
Which is easier, and less painfully, said than done. Still, at least they don't have problems with the wrong kind of leaves on the track!
Character control is what Knightmare tests, and you have to be sw ift to survive. The keyboard icon mix works well, with the left hand physically walking the team via the numeric keypad while the right guides the cursor to control actions. Mistakes mean death, so every action that you preset must be thoroughly thought through, or menu messes are guaranteed when the blood starts to flow. Use the system well however and foes are swiftly dispatched.
TV format Evidence of the TV's influence is profuse, but superficial. The plot is true to the TV formal, supplying you with foes and a motive for play.
Treguard pops up as Oracles, to warn of danger or set your next goal. You're on a mission to scour the dungeons of Dunshelm for the Shield of Justice. Sword of Freedom. Cup of Life and Crown of Glory, while your major foes are the FrightKnighl and Lord Fear.
These elements set the tone, they even dictate the hmk. But not the way it plays. It is finely tuned to test you at all times and stresses puzzles more than its predecessor: Captive.
While wandering Ihe wilderness area above the four dungeons you may be fooled into thinking this is the world of Knightmare. Enter the first tunnel though, and it becomes clear this is the domain of the programmer, not Treguard.

Kiuglilmair doesn't pull its punches, mistakes are punished ferociously. You start the game wandering three areas of wilderness and during this respite you're expected to master the game's controls. It isn't a threat-free area, mu the hassles are sparse enough for you to become familiar enough with their functions and layout. The first quest you have to complete is unannounced but implicit finding the dungeon you're supposed to explore!

Monsters lurk around most corners to test mouse speed in combat, while the puzzles 71 FEBRUARY 1992 begin to stretch your cerebral powers. The tunnels are an interconnecting maze. Locked doors restrict movement until the correct kev or switch is found. The start as simple tests with the key for the next door hidden at the extremes ol the currenth accessible network.
These evolve, with hidden switches introduced to ensure vouTe paving attention.
The pace of the game is forced by the crea* lures who Ui in wail. These are intelligent and tough beasts who don't warm to becoming sword fodder. In a straight light the result is never a certainty, with death a real possibility.
Each has been placed to meet the party at a specific point in the game, so they match the party 's power almost perfectly.
With no walk over opponents, each battle is plagued with doubt Can your lighter take another hit ’ Should the last magic be used or saved? If you run. Where do you run to? Your team should have a slight edge, if they arc- used with maximum efficiency. Make a mistake. Or fail to recognise the power of a magic item and you're dead meat! There arc few straight-up lights and you're warned but outnumbered. So a tactical approach is needed if you're to win through with a full team.
Kni th Mure's gameplay teeters on unplay ably tough. Importantly though, it never falls. As each encounter has been precisely weighed you must match that precision to w in.
One slip during battle, one tactical oversight or missed hidden switch will prove fatal.
However, the frustration of failure and the danger of combat only heighten the feeling of satisfaction when a tough beast is beaten.
Team spirit Knigliimurc has a frustrating bul compulsive edge. Despite spending hall of any game cursing at its relentless aggression. Kitightmare docs have strange compulsion. Despite its ability to totally destroy your leant and their hopes time after time, you still find yourself coming back for another go.
The game doesn't help its cause though, with its unfriendly save system. It's easy enough to save a party and position at any time in the game, it’s the loading that's a problem.
Kmglilmarc has been deliberately designed to discourage liberal use of save and load. W ithin the game you can only load a saved game initially after booting or if the party dies. In this way il was hoped lo force a more careful style of adventuring. However admirable this first sounds as gameplay theory , in practice it soon grows into an irritating a chore.
If one battle causes enough damage to kill one of your characters and leaves everybody else shattered, it's annoying. It's also fair lo assume that the next light will be even harder.
The choice of w hether to load up a saved game or plough on should he yours: whether to 'cheat' or not. The safeguard isn't even strong Continued overleaf enough 10 work effectively, it just forces you to kill the remaining members of a team to access the load option.
Knighinmre's other irritations are minor compared to the loading problem. The lack ot a compass is less of a hindrance once the party go underground, but it still causes occasional moments of complete confusion. Experienced adventurers should have no problem here, but folk who aren't veterans when they first play have to become one real quick or give up.
The ability to choose specific actions other than merely use' can sometimes prove a blessing too. I! Teams are prepared and no slips occur during combat, it's a last and effective system. One error or missed click, though, can imbalance the finely weighted combat and give monsters a fatal advantage. Accidentally calling up a menu and not an action is time consuming in a time-critical situation. Again the game theory is sound - reward the skillful player and punish the clumsy - hut the penally you have to pay tor mistakes is high.
FEBRUARY 1992 Hard but fair?
Kiiightnuirr plays fast and hard As dungeon romps go. Few can match it for the continuous ferocity of its assault on your party's lives Each encounter is tailored to suit your team's status, so the game runs in a state of perpetual high tension. Success in this environment really feels like an achievement, but failure is both frustrating and far more common.
An element of frustration can drive players on to try again or rethink their current tactics. It can focus the thinking and hone the player's style to suit the game system. Extreme levels of irritation however ruin games Knighlmare manages to stay the right side of the frustration line - just, hut there are times when the account appears overdue.
What we have here is a precisely balanced game that requires maximum effort at all times. Every square of corridor must be checked on all sides at all times, each character must be watched lo ensure that they are ready for unexpected combat. Every battle must be thoroughly prepared for. Adapting proven tactics to suit current needs. All the puzzles and riddles that inform your quest must be analysed and solved.
In terms of a strict translation from TV show lo computer game Knighlmare is far from a convincing success. As a highly polished game in its own right it is a definite success. A finely balanced affair Knighlmare continually pushes players harder anti faster. It accelerates from a tough start to plain hard real fast, and that means that you need to either be a dungeon expert or a quick learner to stand a chance. The frustrating process of loading in saved games soon becomes a familiar one.

Snakes and robots don't exactly make It easy going!
Smash TV The theme of violent future sports is hardly a new one. After all Rallerhall brought us visions of psy chopaths in a high-tech arena as far back as 1975. More recently, films such as The Running Sian (which in turn was a pale interpretation of the original hook I have revitalised the interest in violent spectator sports, as well as introducing the idea of TV game show s that are played literally to the death.
High-powcr future sport games arc also a well-visited theme as far as computer games are concerned. The most notable is Psygnosis' Killing Game Shine and the Bitmap Brothers' Speedball. Smash T ' tends to lean tow ards the game-show theme more than the sports view, being heavily inspired by The Running Man.
Didn't they do well?
The year is 1999. The Generation Game has long since been assigned lo the archives as people cry out for more powerful and violent TV shows. There is one company however that has a show that pulls in bigger audience ratings than any other network program.
Smash TV features big cash payouts, fabulous prizes and more blood and sweat than any other TV show in history.
The game is played by one or two contestants under the control of you and a friend.
You arc given a simple machine-gun and a rudimentary set of body armour. The lucky (?)
Contestants are thrown into a metallic arena with four doors. Through these doors emerge correspond lo prizes such as cars, holidays.
VCRs and toasiers - or as piles of cash which can be picked up lo increase your bonus.
Unfortunately, in order lo collect your bonus you need lo beat Muloid Man. He wails ai the end of the current maze and trundles out of a hole in the wall when you approach. To defeat him you need to blow the gunners from the tank base, blow off his arms and then zap his head. Gruesome - but the audience loves it.
The scores on the doors The Amiga conversion of Smash TV loses a lot of the frantic feel of the coin-op. This is partly because the only way you can play with two joysticks is either wihl two Bugs or by gluing two sticks together on the table! This would be OK if a similar system to Uamatron (a game which, like Smash 7V. Was also bom out of the ashes of the classic Rabat run) had been used to allow you to lire in different directions, but in Smash TV you have to hit a key on the keyboard. This greatly disrupts the flow of the game, resulting in the loss of lives.
Another annoying point is the fact that the screen is a lot shorter than in the coin-op. This means that the w ild feel of the original hasn't been carried across, since you haven't got the space to play with. The graphics and sound are a bit messy too. W ith some extremely garish colours and scratchy sound effects being used to portray the action.
If you've never played the coin-op. Then the game may very well hold your interest for a very short while, but anyone who is expecting to play the hit arcade game on their Amiga will be disappointed, since the game lacks the substance and action that is required for a challenging shoot-cnt-up.

Cardiaxx Consider the following piece of text and see whether you think you'd want to hear the rest of this gripping space drama: "The shuttle drifted towards Halfway with ihe grace of a pregnant duck. Strips of navigation lights w inked blue and green along the sides of the craft as the pilot aimed the vessel towards ihe empty bay. The retros blasted briefly - soundless rockets firing into space, slow mg the approach of the freighter".
FEBRUARY 1992 Not exactly, awe-inspiring prose is it?
That piece is from the beginning of the novella which Electronic Zoo have padded their manual out with However, as bad as that cliche ridden story is, five minutes spent wading through its tetchy grammar is far preferable to the same amount of time spent playing their latest 'game' Cardiaxx.
You see. The Zoo have bunged a 'story' in their manual so that you don't need any instructions to play: the joystick moves your spaceship around and fire unleashes a bullet.
Why gloss things up? Cardiaxx is a shoot-cm- up not a prospective Pulitzer prize w inner.
Would it win any prizes?
Cardiaxx Electronic Zoo ¦ £25.99 There's nothing more satisfying than sitting down for half-an-hour. With a well written blaster and destroying zillions of alien sprites.
However, mindless blasting games, more than any other kind of Computer game have got lo be playable; rob them of this vital ingredient and what you've got is a waste of a perfectly good floppy disk.
It is essentially a Defender clone.
Caridaxx could be up there with the best. You can't go far wrong with some swift direction changing, high firc-power. Spaceship antics.
Well it seems you can here.
Mk! 37% T his game verges on the unplayable. The craft you're meant to destroy alien ships with has the most frustrating inertia ever installed ? SHOOT-EM-UPS Popularly perceived as the dominant computer game shoot outs are actually rare (Ish) on the Amiga Good shoot-em-ups last joystick dexterity and hand eye coordination The thnll comes from dodging waves ol bullets escaping Irom death by pixels and the massive tire-power gained from the power-ups The skill comes Irom learning and predicting the torm ol the alien waves who tty directly at you!
On a ship. One liny nudge of ihe joystick and your craft goes hurtling across the screen, straight through aliens, bouncing off walls and inevitably killing you. Tap the joystick in the olher direction to reduce speed and you end up doing exactly the same only in the opposite direction. It is possible, with the lightest of nudges to move slowly, but these lake so much concentration that you end up going slowly into the nearest wall.
To top it all. The aliens have been placed in the most difficult-lo-hit places imaginable.
Here it's like being dropped bolt first into a cage of starving, rabid Pitbulls.
It can't be that bad., can it?
From a technical point of view Cardiaxx is fine. The graphics are relatively colourful, the sound's chunky and it all scrolls around smoothly. The trouble is all these good aspects never gel together as a game. It's as if someone set out to design a smooth scrolling routine and as an afterthought decided to bung a few sprites in.
The level's are arranged so that you have to shoot entire attack waves to progress any further. The next attack wave might be to the left or right of your position and so you have lo go over old ground. To aid you. A sampled voice instructs you that there are aliens lo the left or the right and you thus travel in cither direction where you shoot at said aliens.
After 10 minutes of this game you'll have had more than enough. The difficulty with the spaceship control is it ups the already considerable difficult to near unplayable levels. The disparate elements aren't brought together at any stage. The Defender style of gameplay Ctiridnxx tries to emulate never materialises.
And much like the game itself, it feels just like the ship: you're going back and forth, getting nowhere, incredibly fast!

FANTASTIC VOYAGE Placed m a strange land with strange laws you have to survive' That s the challenge of a lantasy role-play game. You have to understand the concepts. Learn the rules and use them to your advantage FRP games work well on computer because the Amiga takes all the work out of dice
rolling and rule book reading. All you do is observe the actions, determine the results and then modify your behaviour accordingly Talking to other people Is the only way to progress In the game. Close to the start you meet Von Schmelling. Who Is willing to sell you the German report on King Tilt's tomb.
I RECOGNIZE YOU FROM THE MUSEUM RECEPTION.
SO. YOU WRNT THE REPORT OUTLINING THE TUTRNKXHMEN EXPEDITION? HELL. IT'S GOING TO COST YOU. GIVE ME £2,GDG, RND I MILL HRND 6ver the report.
Imagine that the Victorian era saw the first space exploration. Imagine also that late 19th century Britain. France. Belgium and Japan have established colonies on Mars and Venus. And finally, imagine lhal Thomas Hdison was responsible. Still with me? You must have one hell of an imagination.
( TJILarHr Space 1889 Space 1889 is a computer version of a paper-and-pencil role-playing game. The background is different to any other game - it's reminiscent of Jules Verne meets Edgar Rice Burroughs, complete with Martians. Sclcnitcs.
Moonmcn and Venusian dragons.
The first thing you do is invent some characters on a separate save-game floppy. These can have a variety of skills and backgrounds.
The most limiting factor in a character's development is social status, hence the Victorian flavour of the game. The character design is easy enough. There are five different options, and you just work down them. You only control what a character turns out like in general terms, with the computer doing the legwork.
Once you have a party of five or less characters. The game begins. The plot stalls relatively innocently during an exhibition to the British Museum in London. A team of German explorers have discovered the whereabouts of Tutankamcn's tomb. You overhear and decide lo fund an expedition of your own.
Together with some friends who club in with you (that is the character party you've just designed).
And that's it. The game starts with you having nothing but a pocket of cash (having a career as a master criminal helps enormously) and you have to get an expedition together.
Once that quest is completed, others follow : to the moon. Mars and Venus - eventually.
There's plenty of equipment to buy. Information to obtain and people to meet before that happens. This is a good idea, as it gives sou a chance to gel used to icons and menu systems before the party gels into trouble.
Window with a view Most of the action takes place in a small view window, which gives an overhead look at the character's surroundings. Everything that appears in this view window looks awful - everything else looks pretty good.
Movement is easy but long winded. You pul the mouse pointer where you want to go.
And then click the button. Easy, except that moving around to any distance takes thousands of button clicks. It would be OK if the game w orked fast enough to keep up. But most of the time you're waiting for the party just to get from A to B. The menuing systems are frustrating. It's very odd that a game will use the mouse for most things, and then insist that you use the cursor and the Return key for specifics (buying and selling items you find in the game are the worst culprits).
Another failing is that the design of the game lets you do virtually everything on one screen. There is nothing wrong with this, but the game gives you a variety of different options, couple this with the ever-present title, and you find the actual playing area looks small and pathetic.
Space 1889 Empire ¦ £29.99 Walk like Egyptians There plenty of places to go on planet Earth alone, with various modes of transport available. Everything is based on steam power with the exception of horses, which adds nicely to the atmosphere. It's very odd. Though, walking from London lo Egypt without ill effect. Even more weird is that it's very difficult once you've hired a steam ship or Zeppelin to actually land anywhere again, apart from the place that you hired it from.
FEBRUARY 1992 Most of the game play is handled through simple interaction with the different characters you meet in the game. The combat system, is simple to use and fairly comprehensive on w eapons covered and how they are used.
Most people though will be totally unmoved by Space 1889 The manual contains background information rather than playing guides, the protection system is a code sheet printed in black on midnight blue (unreadable) and playing it will bore you lo tears. There might be a real game in there, but it will take days for to you to unravel, and the tedium is loo much for all but the most hardened role player. A great mythos. But not much fun.

390029 FEBRUARY 1992 swarming with guards, and one whiff of a
Bonanza Brother is enough to trigger swift retribution
involving the business end of the guards' firearms. You can
fire your stun-gun back, but all too many of the guards wear
bullet-proof clothing, making head-on. Charge
of-the-light-brigade style manoeuvres highly impractical, not
to say foolhardy.
Stealth and tactics: that's the key to success. This is also where the two-player option comes into its own. A map is displayed, illustrating Robo. Mobo. Doors, stairs and all the remaining pieces of evidence and their locations. So take time to plan a two-pronged pincer-stylc attack, or divide the playing area into two and share the burden of exploration - either method offers more chance of success than simply bodging ahead on your own.
The buildings are divided into rooms by doors and stairs. Robo and Mobo can creep around in semi-3D (they walk to the 'back' of the screen to hide against walls or climb up and down screens) and open doors.
Sandwiching a guard against a wall with the strategic and sudden opening of a door is displayed in Tom 'n' Jem fashion, and provides an addition to the Bros weaponry. Creeping up on a room from both directions is usually the It's night lime. You're wearing a catsuit and a balaclava helmet. You're in the house of a lotal stranger and you're about to do something decidedly morally unsound, not lo mention highly illegal. Yes. You've joined the Bonanza Brothers for an evening of breaking-and-entering.
Except this time the law is fully aware of Badville's most notorious criminals' activities.
The mayor has decided to clean up his town, and has hired Robo and Mobo to accumulate evidence from the offices of the 1(1 most corrupt businesses in town.
Double trouble Bonanza Brothers is essentially a two-player game, and to he honest there's no real way that a one-player romp will realise half the potential that the game has lo offer.
Each level is in a different building, and the object is lo explore your surroundings, collect all of the pieces of evidence lying around (don't worry, you don't have to be Inspector Morse because all the collectable objects flash, successively blowing the gaff for the corrupt business that is being investigated) and then make your way to the exit But things aren't completely straightforward (surprise, surprise). The buildings arc Bonanza Bros only means of getting away unhurt, so plan the routes of you and your buddy in advance.
You’ll like it, but not a lot There's a time limit and empty drink cans and garden rakes are lying around (tread 011 either and you fall on your back, a silting duck for any guards that happen lo be around) and there are some strange characters (puppies and bizarre bearded bomh-chuckers) in an attempt to make your task even tougher. But that, my budding cat burglar, is your lot.
Ten buildings of increased complexity and tougher baddies aren't enough to keep you interested. The animation is blocky. With only a few imaginative touches and there's not enough two-player interaction lo add depth to the game. If only there had been a bit more entertaining animation and a few more levels, then the Bonanza Brothers could have been a cracker, but as it is - there's not enough here.

Collect-em-ups also use maps more than linear scrolling lire list lights Barbarian II Hegor's back for more. Alter he successfully did away with Nccron. His evil brother, he comfortably settled down to a hero's existence of endless free beers down the pub. Cheap plumbing
and the occasional guest appearances on TV game shows (or whatever the barbarian's equivalent to that may he I. But one fateful day the previously reliable "Hey babe, I'm a superhero. I killed Nccron and I could have been king,” line failed to work on a girl. Evidently. Necron's evil minions have resurrected their master's body, and evil once more stalks the land. No-one likes a hero who leaves a job half-finished, so before you could say 'loincloth' the free beer dncd up. His regular slot on TV's Chicks 'n' Choppers was given to 'Miss Damsel In Distress 670 BC' and he couldn't find a plumber
for love nor money.
FEBRUARY 1992 Hi ho, hi ho it's off to the forest Hegor goes This made Hegor vers angry, so w ithoul even bothering to pack his smalls (or even put a winter coat on | he set off into the dark forest once more hot on the trail of his sworn enemy.
This is where you join in the proceedings, as Hegor appears on a woodland path somewhere in level one - the Forest. There arc five other levels of action to explore and conquer, adding up to a BIG adventure.
Hegor can run cither left or nght along paths, with openings to adjoining paths, caves or buildings displayed in the foreground and background. The game immediately bears its teeth, as our hero's first taste of action soon swaggers onto screen. Baddies take numerous forms, relying on numbers as opposed to 'ard- ness to wear down our man's energy reserves.
Kill a baddie. And it'll drop a bottle of potion.
These can then be collected to enhance cither your own stamina or the strength of any weapons you may have collected.
There arc numerous armourmcnts at Hegor's disposal (including swords, axes, crossbows and grappling hooks), but first he must find them - not easy. The game soon settles into its stride, basically a collect-cm-up set over a large area with baddies and traps to negotiate as you go. It's all fairly basic, but the action is fast (checked only by a small lag-time when Hegor takes a tum-off at a junction) and the beat-em-up sequences are well-animated and require a fair amount of skill. Hegor has a wide range of combat moves at his disposal, and there arc definite techniques to be learned for
dealing w ith particular baddies.
Interspersed throughout the game arc opportunities to spend some of the cash you may have collected. Villages provide all sorts of goodies - not least the chance to gossip with a local, often yielding useful information.
There's a save-game option enabling you to restart at higher levels (very useful: this is a big game) and a whole world full of friendly iand not so friendly) people to meet.
Mow that was careless. But this doorway may lead somewhere useful.
The only problem Is.
You may have Loincloths and bulging muscles Barbarian II comes billed by Psygnosis as the ‘ultimate in loincloth entertainment'. And even though this could be disputed by the big and bulging Chippendales. Adonis, et al - it does give you some indication as to the merest tinge of black humour you'll discover injected into this massive arcade adventure. If Hegor runs into a wall, he hurts his head - logical, accurate. But the first time I've ever seen it happen in this type of game.
The graphics are fairly basic, but everything moves smoothly across the screen - and it's especially good to see the beat-em-up clement handled so well. All too often, games that encompass elements of fighting tend to fudge it - the action is usually far too brawlish requiring only an auto-fire button to see you through to the next levels - but Barbarian II has none of this.
In fact the only real criticism is that the game really is a little dated and rather basic, considering what is available currently on the market. But there's a big. Slickly presented challenge here that fans of the original, or of the genre in general, will enjoy.

OYSTON MILL STRAND ROAD PRESTON LANCS PR I 81)R TEL 07 72 73 57 50 FAX 07 72 73 50 31 The only major game from eastern Europe was the addictive Tetris. But this post-perestroika RPG enterprise could well be about to put its western counterparts to shame.
It's refreshing lo have preconceptions shattered, for first impressions lo he wrong, to see prejudice overcome by fact.
When Abandoned Places was first announced the omens seemed had: Electronic Zoo had never published a full blooded RPG before and the programmers lived in Hungary, of all places. Yet. Despite these portents of doom the finished game is refreshingly good.
Trials of life A journey lakes four resurrected heroes on an artefact trail. They have to track down the component parts of ancient weapons, find masters in the arts of war and magic, visit cities in search of clues and then take on the world’s big nasty - who as you might imagine, is plotting to take over the place. The game is in three main sections: dungeon exploration, roaming the countryside and searching towns.
Linked by sequential quests this is the world of Abandoned Places - which is a bit of a dali name as the towns arc teeming with people.
Abandon The meat of the game is in the dungeons, castles and towers are explored in a Dungeon Master style. These are packed with monsters to kill, treasure to collect and artifacts to help for the showdown with the end-of-game bad guy. Twelve different graphic styles add variety. Masses of monsters keep you on your toes and there are so many different dungeons littering the countryside it’s a wonder the world doesn't subside into the sea.
FEBRUARY 1992 Going underground The underground exploration is solid stuff with a few extra frills thrown in to push the genre forward. The controls are clearly laid out with all information accessible on the main game screen. Spells, weapons and objects can all be used swiftly in combat, set off by a click of the mouse. Movement's are either driven by icon controls or some oddly placed - but easily learned - keyboard commands. You can control everything visible in the game window. Fighters can now push, pull or climb, as well as walking and hacking; while the effects of spells on ihe
surrounding area have been spectacularly implemented.
Within a dungeon there are a few key goals. You enter each set of tunnels with a specific aim. A quest. This can take the fonn of a genocidal "kill all the monsters” or a more specific object location test. On top of this are the pressures of keeping your folks kicking, they need food and sleep like the rest of usl If you run low on munch, then the hit points start to fall, and if you become exhausted then magic points never regenerate quickly enough.
Abandoned Places Is no mere dungeon bash: It's a wilderness adventure too!
The game sets you the task of having to search for cities, towns, people and even having to explore the dungeons. It's not the most rlvetting part of the game, but it fleshes out the scope of this fantasy world spectacular.
The first wilderness problem you encounter is how to catch a boat off this little island and onto the main map!

* McfEV 110 0 YOU CANNOT FAS5 HERE!
VOU CANNOT PASS HERE 77 N X ©NT I Surviving combat is a primary concern. The first few dungeons are easily beaten, with weak foes for you to sharpen your sword skills on. Later, the monsters get tougher and hit in larger groups. If that wasn't enough to keep any adventurer happy, then they have to start mapping. You have to know where you are. To know where you want to go and what hasn’t been explored yet.
Those firey folk look ferocious but should adventurers few problems. One tip though, unless you've got a Fakir in the party, don’t stand in the fire to fight them!
The dungeons are the main focus but the inclusion of other sections beyond the cavern walls means it does not live or die by them. It allows the difficulty factor to increase slowly - maybe too slowly. The emphasis is on exploration, solving the puzzles and finding the keys, more than powering through by brute force.
Magic carpet ride Exploration is the key to the world above the dungeons. You are never told directly where to go next, you have to visit towns and ask wise men for advice. They will give you a broad hint, or maybe even a diversionary quest, that gradually pieces together into an overall crusade against evil. As you traverse the countryside on horseback, on boat, on fool, or Hying via magic, wandering monsters randomly attack, to make sure you’re paying attention and maintain the game’s pace.
The location of some dungeons is known, ie in the mountains above a certain town, but only footwork and scouting will reveal the exact entrance. Seen from afar with a party icon wandering the map. The wilderness is not deeply involved but is a considerable part of ihe game. If you can’t find the right dungeon you’re stuffed, if you miss a town (and the clue) further play is difficult. But it provides a neat change of pace from the ’in your face’ dungeoneering and broadens the game.
Towns are not essentially part of the game, they are the one place you can’t actually die. They do however provide the information, the training and the equipment that fuels the game. They provide a neat human edge to remind you. As a player, of what you’re fighting to protect.
Abandoned Places is the first project for Electronic Zoo’s east European adventure prodigies and it is an outstanding debut. It adds ? ME FIRST!
Dungeon Master Ml the benchmei* lor this style ot First Person Perspective adventure While a tar from perfect form toi RPGs (how can you play tour different characters at once?) This is the most dominant form Last year s Eye ot the Beholder rekindled Interest in the format and now a whole batch ol new titles are in the offing using this approach. Until EOTB it was thought that DM had both created and killed Ihe genre by being so good!
Out of the game from one insular dungeon to a full world works, but lowers the pace of the bash. New monsters and a new system of magic add lo Ihe fresh feel, introducing different parameters to the battles and spell effects.
There are a few rough edges that occasionally irritate, such as indistinct wall sections, bui the lower threat level balances this. The pacing may be suspect w ith the game not getting dangerous or fast enough, but your opinion on this depends on whether you play for the thrill of combat or the challenge of puzzles and traps. The outside world section can feel remote, failing to reflect its importance within ihe game, but it is an ambitious attempt at taking RPGs further than ever before.
Abandoned Places is an outstanding first project by any standards, and it's an impressive first foray into the role-play domain for Electronic Zoo. It's not the toughest dungeon romp 011 the streets but il is the biggest. It's not ihe most thrilling, but it does have the extra depth of the town and wilderness sections.
What it docs do is re-focus the Dungeon Master perspective away from combat and more towards Irue adventuring - where one of the biggest dangers is losing your way. Not your life! The control system has been radically miniinalised. So one screen carries all Ihe information that parties need and yet still offers more control options than normal.
Abandoned Places is a solid dungeon romp, and has frilly bits loo! Its blend of styles and pace will not be to all RPGcr's taste, but those who are willing to play a game for its own sake w ill be rewarded with .1 playing schedule that will lake months to complete.
Trenton Webb Cj FEBRUARY 1992 Places ¦ £29.99 Debutante Abandoned Places is a fresh blast in the dungeon world. Many of the more nonsensical conventions have been ignored, like slamming doors on monsters, and new ideas have taken their place: push, pull and climb. The opening
• positively huge world that's crammed with different dungeons.
• I here are occasional problems with different graphics sets.
• N ilderness and town sections on top of the dungeon bush!
• An outstanding first project that redefines KIM is on its
terms.
Typical, you wait hours for a monster then two come along at once. In fights make sure that your back-row boys do something as experience is only gained for direct action. So no participation, no points, no new levels, no extra hit points... enough to the usual mix lo achieve an identity separale from the games which inspired it: Dungeon Master. Chaos Strikes Hack and Eye of the Beholder, and il improves on them in significant areas. The aulo-map function, a reward for completing a difficult dungeon, is a significant bonus and gameplay improvement.
The inclusion of an outer world and a broader plol give the game a sense of geographical solidity. As a game it works well, as a first project it's stunning.
The first project for Electronic Zoo's east European prodigies is an outstanding debut.
Abandoned Places isn'l without its problems.
The gentle opening pace helps players get to grips with both the game and the system. Yet ihe pace doesn't really start lo increase until much later in ihe game. For beginners this should make it an ideal trainer, bill for folks who’vc been round Dungeon Master twice, life may seem a little dull. The inclusion of the outside world helps the game trespass into different genres, but not enough is made of the problems of travelling lo bring the advantage home. It's interesting but rarely exciting.
Not graphic enough The range of graphic styles used is admirable in scope, but while certain wall sections look prelly Ihey are hard to read. The cave areas arc particularly bad; it's vital you know if the corridor continues or goes into a cross roads, but it's almost impossible to tell what shape Ihe next 10 foot of wall w ill be. Once you're there Bd Places Abandoned Places offers a more varied range of backdrops and monsters than your average RPC.
In the first dungeon three types of wall are used and three different styles of monsters are faced.
Some of the wall sections do cause problems though.
The caves, as seen here, create problems because you can't see clearly enough to see If the corridor either car- Media Direct 0782 208228 AMIGA 500 PACKS PRINTERS LL X DC ) ZO OZ ONOOCM CNJCOt-lDOCD All our printers are UK specification and are covered by a 12 months warranty- All the prices include a printer lead and a tailored dust cover £294.95 £144.95 £204.95 £224.95 £314.95 PERIPHERALS £604 95 £834 95 £499.95 £479 95 Amiga Pack 1 (Classic Pack) 51£K landom access memory Built -m disk Onve 4096 colou!

The A320 is a twin-engined medium range job. With room for a couple of hundred people on board. It's a pan-European plane, parts of which are built in Germany. France and the UK. And its primary role is short-hauling its way around Europe.
In this simulation you get to fly a Lufthansa Airbus from the European city of your choice (within reason), to. Er. Another European city of your choice. The challenge is getting to grips with everything that a real pilot has to deal with. The detail included is also tell the bureaucrats whether you'll be flying on instruments or visual flight rules (VFR).
If you select VFR you're limited to flying in the daytime and below the clouds.
Once the office bods are happy with your plan, you are dumped into the aircraft. You sit in the left-hand scat (traditionally the commander's chair) and in front of you is a 50-50 split between the view out and the controls.
As well as the fly-by-wire. Your Airbus has a 'glass cockpit'. This means the old electro-mechanical gauges and dials have been replaced by a primary flight display (PFD).
This is a TV screen displaying speed, altitude, artificial horizon info, heading and vertical speed. It's like a HUD. But it's down on the panel, so you can't sec the sky through it.
FEBRUARY 1992 The challenge is getting to grips with everything that a real pilot has to deal with.
Immense, so don't expect just to whack open the throttles and point at the sky.
Best-laid plans Before you're allowed to get anywhere you must file a flight-plan. You go to a screen where you must type in your airpon of departure. Arrival and any place you want to visit on the way. You must also put down how many passengers you're taking, how much freight and how many kilos of fuel you'll need. You If you thought all flight Spool up those sims were 'gung ho', "-«*»-•**««.»- roll. It Helps H you and that they were more tLS.o£!5»iE concerned with killing than flying, think again.

H. 5P0 ?
SUCK O BM700 H93D T7H9 159 Finals are where you panic your way through the prelanding checks you should have done minutes ago at 5,000 feet. Checks like gear down, power off and aim for the long straight road with the tiger- sired cat's eyes.
Looking out of the left window, you see the airport whistle past. Flying around the airbase Is fine in Training mode, but If you try anything spectacular when you're on a scheduled flight, the authorities have got every right to fire SAMs at you.
99 FEBRUARY 1992 At about 8.000 feet you'll run Into clouds. Mot sweet puffy white things, but a mass of solid nothingness. At
10. 000 feet you burst out into sunlight again, but of course
your view of the ground is completely obscured.
FLY-BY-WIRE GIVES YOU THE EDGE Traditionally aeroplanes have had hydraullc-machanl- cat control systems. This moons thot when the pilot moves the control stick and the rudder pedals, linkages connected to hydraulk cylinders transmit his movements to the ailerons, elevators and rudder.
Fighter aircraft, though, are designed with Inherent Instability. The Idea is that a fighter doesn't want to sH happily flying straight and level, it's at Its best In high turns or climbing and diving, and K should respond instantly to any movements on the controls.
Fty-by-wire, as seen on the F-16, F-18 and MIC 29 works like a digital computer joystick. Movements are transmitted Into electrical pulses which are converted back into movements when they reach the plane's control surfaces. The advantage Is that an onboard computer can monitor everything the pilot asks Navigation is at th. Heart of Airbus, using map. Ilk. This! Th. To do. H the pilot puts tit. Plan. Into a stalling situation, the computer can transmit its own signals to override him and avoid the stall. The computer is far more sensitive than a pilot, and can make adjustments thousands
of times a second. It can also be linked to the throttles to control and oversee everything. So it's possible to fly (with the computer's help) at speeds and angles which run rings round other aircraft.
Fty-by-wire is being installed onto the next generation of civil airliners for the opposite reason. Instead of making the aircraft capable of more violent manoeuvres, it's designed to prevent these, especially at low speeds.The Airbus Industrie A220 has got fty-by-wire technology as standard, and after a few teething problems, such as the Paris Air Show disaster, when the crew flew low and slow over the airfield and the plane thought K was landing. It overrode the throttles when they were pushed to full power, and the plane crashed into a wood.
Airbus Industrie say that this can never happen again.
Once you've cast your eyes over Ihis array, it's time to spool up the engines. Each engine has separate controls, but you can control them both at once. OK. They're fired up. The power will settle at 17 per cent. Time to look for the runways and taxi-ways. When you've found the one you want, then it's throttles forwards until you start taxiing. The aircraft is controlled by the mouse, you can use it to steer on the ground by moving left and right. Once you find the runway, line up and kill the power.
Radio chaos Before you blast off. You've got to sort out your route. This is where it gets complicated.
Radio beacons or varying types litter your route. There are VORs. NDBs and ILSs to sort out. Basically, you have to consult an aeronautical map and dial up the correct frequencies for the beacons you need, including the final one at the destination airport.
When these arc locked in. A nav display comes into life. You get a set of cross-hairs which iell you which direction to go. You can then take off. Head out in the right direction, get lo the correct height (you'll be informed by ATC) and, er. Fly along until you get there.
The graphics in A320 are almost incidental. You get half a screen of either day or night views of the ground, rivers, runways and fields. These seem pretty smooth, but the Airbus isn't cut out for low-level high-speed passes, so if you're playing properly, you don't get to see much ground detail. Sound is limited to engine noises and the odd warning.
The engines sound excellent, and the feeling of power is real as you push them to the gate.
A320 is for the purist. It's not something you can launch into; you have to read the manual and study the controls. It flies well, though, and you can tell when the fiy-by-wire takes over (if you bank too far or try and stall). If you're a fan of civil aviation and you like mastering complex procedures as you approach at 130 knots, you'll enjoy it. But a game it's not.
So don't expect excitement.
James Leach 0 ? SIMS FAMILIAR Flight simulations are one ot the most popular games on the Amiga. They seek to recreate the (lying experience by generating a 30 world which you can tly around in an aircraft model I hat has been tweaked to mimic that ot its real world counterpart Both World War I and II alrcrafl have been simulated as has virtually every modern decent tighter aircraft- These lend to have heavy manuals, but the complexity often torms part ot the game's appeal Airbus A320 Thalion ¦ £29.99
• Very detailed, and quite difficult-to-get-into pedantic
simulation.
• Takes ages to play and not a great deal happens so forget
about MiG avoidance.
FEBRUARY 1992 Next it's back to the street, where road-signs are brought into play as weapons. After a struggle with both Bebop and Rock-Steady.
April is saved - but the fight isn't over. Now you must battle through to save Splinter, who has been kidnapped by the Foot Clan.
This requires the Turtles to enter Shredder's underground base, which is patrolled both by Clan members and huge, powerful battle droids. Only when you have broken through these mighty barriers can you Rock Steady has decided to make a run for It. Maybe you'd better get out of the way before you get trampled underfoot.
Jferdic! 60% tr Turtles - The Coin-Op After the success of the first Turtles licence, it was inevitable that a conversion of the coin-op game would soon hit the shelves. For those w ho are unfamiliar with the arcade, the approach is different from the first Image works Turtles release. -The coin-op is a sideways-scrolling hcat-em-up. With up to four players controlling each of the individual Turtle characters as they try their best to battle their way past members of the dreaded Foot Clan to finally defeat the evil Shredder.
Turtle soup The game begins with the Turtles answering a cry for help from their buddy. TV reporter April O'Neal, who is trapped in a burning office building. Unfortunately. Shredder and his cronies are waiting, and they whisk her away before you can rescue her. The battle then moves to the street, where bomb-carrying warriors await you. After a battle w ith one of Shredder's mutant heavies, it's into the sewers. Where robots and a hovering spaceship need to be defeated.
Save Splinter and defeat Shredder once and for all... or maybe just for the time being!
I must say that I really wanted the conversion of the Turlies coin-op to be something special. Many a time I've spent far too much time and money on a Saturday afternoon bashing hell oul of the Foot Clan - and I still never managed to finish the game!
Unfortunately, the Amiga version of the arcade hit misses the mark by a fair amount. A number of things are missing from the conversion. Such as the four player option - w hich made things very frantic on the original! This is more than likely down to processor-time problems, which is evident by the fact that play ing in two-player mode causes the game to judder like crazy. A lot of emphasis was placed on the fact that the graphics have been meticulously designed to emulate the coin-op.
So why are they so horribly coloured? The original had some marvellous cartoon-style graphics, but the conversion simply looks like just another blocky beat-em-up.
Down at the arcade A few of the moves that were in the coin-op are missing from the Amiga version, such as the vicious swipe as the Turtles jump in the air. This may not seem important, but it actually affects the gameplay quite significantly.
Now the battles seem to simply consist of holding the joystick sidew ays and bashing the hell out of the fire-button. The collision detection affects the fights too. Especially when you get knocked out bv an enemy that is already supposed to be dead! However, the worst case of this is the gates on the sewer level. These have a collision area which is half as big again as the actual sprite!
The coin-op game is the one that most people said that Imagevvorks should have converted in the first place, but the version that has finally appeared doesn't really do the original game justice.

GOOD SPORT!
Sports simulations have one problem, they re all compared to the brilliant Kick OH 2! This award winning soccer game is so good mat Scrum down! Ball coming in now! If* time to try (!)
And win one of those pesky rucks, but unfortunately it seems that New Zealand are winning. Indicated by the colour of the arrows beside the scrum. Oh dear.
There are a growing number of simulations out there, ranging from snooker to football and from driv ing to flying.
One area that hasn't had much attention though is Rugby, until now that is. World Class Rugby is an overhead-sty le rugby game, akin to the style of Kick Off. The game comprises of a single game disk that loads up and presents you with a comprehensive variety of options, ranging from altering the pitch and wind conditions and also the type of game being played, whether it be a World Cup game, or a friendly league match There are also a few more options, mainly concerned with changing the functions in the game, rather than the actual gameplav.
Such as the almost customary action replay World Class function. There is also another function for viewpoint: 2D or 3D. Hut this seems to have little effect on the game - the screen looks exactly the same except for the colour of the pitch. The call is "Ice Cream".
Will Carling?
Controlling your players is a tricky process, with complex joystick commands to make them do different manoeuvres. Once mastered, though the control process is easier, but still tricky. Everything in a normal rugby game has been included (except the fights). All your moves have to be done according to the rules of rugby, which is good, as the computer is good at picking up things like offside (if enabled I and gives out penalties accordingly.
All the features of the real game have been included. There are line-outs when the hall goes into touch (off the pitch I and when it is your throw, you are presented w ith a host of tactical options to employ. This also happens at scrums, when it is your ball. Winning these scrums and line-outs arc not easy though, with luck play ing a major part of it. Even tackling and kicking can be haphazard, w ith only a limited amount of control over your men. When you have it at all that is. Instead of automatically selecting the nearest man. You have to choose to control the best positioned man by
various joystick combinations.
The presentation of the game is very gixxl. With colourful graphics on the option screens, although the in-game graphics arc a bit jerky and do not flow as well as they could.
The characters are well defined though, and there are some good views in the action-replay mode. You can also save these action replay s, hut unfortunately you need a World Class Rugby expansion disk to actually view them after saving! The sound in the game is good.
Rugby with some good atmospheric ihud sounds w hen lack led. With other good effect through the game.Scrum dow n al 22 yards.
103 All black?
Rugby is a very physical game, and although all the different aspects of rugby, line-outs.
Scrums etc. are faithfully incorporated into the game, there is still a lack of real action, which is rather disappointing. It is all to easy lo get into a ruck or be offside, the computer is pedantic about these things.
FEBRUARY 1992 This is not to say that il is totally impossible to produce a game that would be full of action, it's just that the game requires little skill, because half the time the players seem lo do what they want rather than what you are try ing to make them do. This is fatal for those vital cup matches. It's just a case of where the ideas are good, the implementation is not quite up to scratch.

Spoutrottt Wild West World US Gold £25.99 Wild West World is set in ihe 18th Century, in 1741 (???) To be precise.
Your task is to become the most powerful citi cn in the region, yup pardncr, WWW is a "power domination" game. Respect (powcrl must be earned, and it's earning it by nefarious means that's the fun part where you claim jump and hire gunfighters to intimidate the locals. The graphics arc a bit on the small side, with a few neat touches and there's the odd bit of sampled speech for effect. WWW is a new twist on a common concept - the power battle.
Me) 80% Populous World Editor Electronic Arts £14.99 Fancy a new graphic theme for Populous ? Want to have your people live longer? Then, grab Populous World Editor and get snipping, clipping and drawing. It wasn't coded by the Bullfrogs but by a die hard Populous fan who wanted to make the game a little different. One year later the little difference has become a full editing suite for the graphics and game mechanics of Populous 1. Fun for games techies! (requires original Populous).
Alien Storm US Gold £25.99 FEBRUARY 1992 OK. You know the score, alien slimeballs have come lo take over our planet because they've completely trashed their own. You're the only one hard enough to save us from becoming alien hors d'oeuvres. Cue sideways scrolling and Operation Wolf style blasting action, as you try to rid ihe planet of these foul alien slime bag type things.
Alien Storm began life as a coin-op w ith really smooth graphics and some smart sounds, unfortunately the Amiga incarnation doesn't. The graphics are big. Colourful and well drawn, but need a little more polish to make them sing. The sound, well did you ever own a Stlyophone? It seems Tiertex (the coding team) did and they must still cherish it judging by the music. It's not THAT bad but it barely varies throughout the game and like the gameplay. The sound effects drain enthusiasm rather than drawing you into the game.
Alien Storm isn't really that bad. It's just not that good! The coin op was mindless but fun.
The conversion is mindless and only occasionally fun. Playing with a friend does stretch the lasting appeal out a bit. And make life easier, but it can't carry the weight of a full game.

Onslaught brings together furiously fast battling action and binds it up with a strategic map. You take control of a little fanatic who starts life with a mace and must use it to bash his way to victory.
It's good looking and plays hard, very hard. It's the kind of game that you hate but have to play again. Luckily a save function alleviates a few good handfuls of tom out hair!
• ••••••••••••••••••A** Fantastic Voyage m CD 70 C o o NJ Centaur
Software £25.99 Essentially a flashily odd shoot cm up.
Fantastic Voyage puts you into someone's bloodstream and leaves
you fighting for survival. Touch the edges and you die. Get
hit by too many blood cells and you die. Cany on playing and
you die
- of boredom. Fantastic Voyage's slick presentation can't carry
this tough shoot out down amongst the haemoglobin!
• •••••••••••••••••••A* Starglider 2 Mirror Image £7.99 Want to
know what made Argonaut famous? Then grab a copy of the budget
re-release of Starglider 2. A 3D space shoot out. The strategy
emerges to grip you in this Amiga classic. Coded in the days
when the Specy ruled, it still kicks butt now. Fast 3D shooting
and enough brain work to waste many an evening, wet afternoon,
sickie from work... Champions Krisalis £25.99 Manchester
United, Jahangir Khan World Championship Squash and World
Championship Boxing Manager team up to form a tough, but agile
little compilation. Together they'll test your skills with the
stick and with the balance sheet.
Man Utd was the first club land outing for Krisalis and was a surprising success. It blends management and arcade games into one package.
Unfortunately, the footie is duff but the management side and big games name save the day.
J Khan's Squash is the best action title of the bunch offering the best version of agoraphobic tennis to date. As for Boxing Manager, it's a solid, dependable sport management sim. It's never exciting, it's never thrilling, but beating your way to the top of the tree will take months. Champions offers a wide mix of styles and quality. If you missed Squash first lime around and fancy one of the others too. Then it might be a barg'.
• ••••••••••••••••A* Soccer Stars Empire £29.99 Football,
bloomin' football, that's all you ever get on the monitor
nowadays! Or it will be if you pick up this pack from Empire,
which features some of the very best and some of the worst
soccer action to be found on any format.
Emlyn Hughes International Soccer is good but slow. Full of intricate tactical moves.
MicroProse Soccer is a failed Kick Off imatation with a pitch window that's much too small and a name that's too big for it Kick Off 2 is simply brilliant, the kind of game you bought your Amiga for. Gazza 2 is an incarnation of the Gordie joker (!'?!) Himself - not worth playing, but at least the real Gazza has a knackered knee to excuse him!
An excellent compalation. Containing two. Very playable, footy games and two free disks to format and back them up with!
FEBRUARY 1992 World Wildlife Fund Complete with spangly tights, make up and silly names the WWF Wrestlemania boys and girls live up to their chart topping tip (AF30 Honest Dunk's Tote). The sales performance is even more impressive when you consider that the game only went on sale in the last few days of the survey. Why wasn't it reviewed this 'ish? As soon as the game was finished it was mastered and in the shops. Ocean didn't even have time to send review copies of the finished game out!
My kingdom for a Norse!
The young lad Heimdall sails straight into the number two spot, pillaging everything is sight.
The Norse god-to-be sports some of the best graphics ever seen in a playable game, along with some neat tricks on the gameplay front.
How do Core do it? Corporation.
Thunderhawk. Heimdall... can Wolfchild (their first 1992 release) be as big?

BELOW So why weren't WWF, Leandet and Moonstone reviewed? Well we didn't get copies of WWF or Leander (hint, hint Psygnosis and Ocean peeps!) To review. We thought of making it all up and getting Frank to draw some pics, but... As for Moonstone, well there just wasn't room. It's a solid son of game, a high gore rating beat em up with adventure overtones. AF74%. Faster than a speeding... At last!
Pueteros. Activision's wonderfully weird space management simulation that was delayed by corporate wrangling finally made it out last month. Now it's finally made it into the charts. Proof positive that a good game really is worth waiting for!

Paul Gibson is the lucky chap. And he gets a £50 voucher for his Hunter map and tips. There's one Helping Hand winner too. And that is Chris Brady, who gets a £25

A couple of points to close on: we can't answer any letters or take cheats over the phone. If you want to give us tips or ask for advice, please write to us at the Gamebusters address. Oh. And NO MORE LOTUS 2 TIPS... PLEASE!
After the belly-busting helping of Gamebusters we dished out last month, Maff Evans has had to calm himself down and have a bit of a lie down in a dark room. Luckily, though, he has found the time to cook up some hefty portions of tips to keep you going until the next sitting, so let's dine... HUNTER A big game and a difficult quest - especially for one person. Follow these tips and the map to beat this multi-vchicled adventure.
To begin with, collect all the items from the two huts on the starting island.
Board the boat and head west toward the stores. Once there, enter the stores and click on AUTO. Before leaving the island, enter the house and collect the money and enemy uniform. Put on the uniform and go back to the boat.
Read the log book and click on the first man. Go to coordinates X136. Y80 and enter the hangar. Collect the fuel and get into the ambulance. Drive lo the position marked FIRST MAN on the map. Enter the hut and select 'TALK'. He should then give you the coordinates of the old man (X181. YI97). Enter these into the log book and head back to the rocket boat by the hangar. Put some of the fuel in the boat and head for the coordinates the first man gave you.
You should now be by a light house, so go in and give the old man money until he won't take any more. Now select 'TALK' and he will give you the coordinates of the second man (X99, Y6I). Put this in the log book and head to the coordinates in the rocket boat. Go to the church to find the second man and give him grenades until he refuses any more. He will now tell you the position of the professor, Heud towards position X59. Y46 to find the helicopter. Add some fuel and head towards position XI46. Y169. Look behind the windmill to find the master key, then head toward the power station (where
the professor is situated). Enter the station and select 'TALK', at which point the professor will ask you to retrieve the nuclear device from position X28. Y227. Return lo the helicopter, add some fuel and fly to the device. When you arrive there will be three small huts surrounded by an electric barrier. Don't enter the right-hand hut or touch the barrier! Use timed explosives to blow up the right hand hut. Then enter the middle hut and collect the nuclear device. Fly back to the professor and give him the device, then select ’TALK' and he will ask you to collect a disk from X100. Y225.
Go to the third man (coordinates XI95, Y119). Return to the helicopter and travel to X224. Y123 to find some fuel. Fill the helicopter and also carry as much of it as you can. Now fly to the location of the disk and enter the house. Look behind the washing machine and collect the disk before returning to the helicopter.
Fly to the third man (who will be hiding behind a rock) and select 'TALK'. He will tell you to collect a security pass from X90, Y153 and also tell you the location of the computer (X224. YI99). Collect the security pass from the office and head towards the computer (which is housed in a fort).
FEBRUARY 1992 Make sure that you are wearing the enemy uniform and you can then enter the fort. Operate the computer and enter the information that il gives to you into the log book. Now head towards the prison at XI35. Y239 and enter it. TALK to the prisoner until he tells you to fetch a saw from coordinates X151. Y121. Then head towards this position.
Enter the building and collect the hacksaw and antibiotics. Head back to the prison and give the hacksaw to the prisoner. He will then tell you to go to the green monk at X85. Y174. Go out and collect an animal of some sort (for food). If you can't find one then try the house at X35 Y248. Go to the green monk, who will tell you to go to an injured soldier at XIO. Y36. Enter the building and TALK to the soldier. Give him the antibiotics and return to XI51. YI2I to pick up another antibiotic. Go back to the hospital and give the soldier more antibiotics until he tells you the whcrabouts of the
General XI35, Y239). He will also mention a scroll which is at X9I. YI73.
Collect the scroll on the way to the General, who's location will turn out to be the prison you visited earlier. Blow up the prison using grenades, a bazooka, mines or an ASM from the helicopter. By fiddling w ith the zoom control you will sec the bunker before blowing up the prison. Enter the bunker from the south (away from the screen) to find the General. Shoot the General and collect his head before returning victorious to HQ.
Travel Tips The helicopter is the best vehicle, but other vehicles may also be of use. If you need fuel for any of them then check out the location of fuel dumps listed below.

Following on from last issue, here are some pointers
straight from the horse's mouth to help you on Epochs four,
five and six.
General Hints Epochs four and five usually involve you gelling involved in long, drawn-oul. Laclical bailies, this is because the weapons lhal arc usually instanlly available from gatherablc elements, all bui disappear.
On later levels, try lo ally with Ihe slrongesl opponent as often as possible, since alliances play an increasingly important role.
The landscape of Karma forces you lo work your way around the entire island. Try lo make sure lhal your sectors are adjacent lo one another and throw all your armies into the two bordering sectors as defence.
You'll find that cannons arc particularly important on Epoch four and on the Ingle island in Epoch five.
Lada is a pretty tricky island, so you may need to use more men than usual to begin with. Try to ally with at least one of your neighbours immediately.
During the long battles on Epochs four and five, the use of shields to reconstruct your building is essential.
Use of aeroplanes (and later nukes) on multiisland levels is essential. Don't waste all your minerals on non-flying weaponry, otherwise you will find yourself in a losing position at worst or a stalemate at best.
FEBRUARY 1992 Nausea, being the first of the split islands, is a right b... cr... rotter to beat. To win you really need to own the bottom left sector of (he South island. The far right sector of the South island is also useful, since you can use biplanes to top up your force.
Ocarina is impossible to beat using normal tactics. You really need to use more men than usual and get in a quick attack. If you allow your opponents to develop their forces to any extent then you've had it!
Epoch six is an introduction to the 'high- powcr' arms race that tends to dominate the later levels. If you work quickly, you can win the levels by conventional means, but more often than not it's a straight race to be the first person with nuclear capabilities.
An essential part of playing the multiisland levels is the initial choice of sectors. Try to work your way onto an island of your own accord, since this will give you valuable breathing space. Alternatively, try to form enough to give your opponent a quick bash in the unmentionables!
A useful tip against a final enemy with one sector left and nuclear defences, especially if you only have one sector yourself, is to try and break into another sector. You can then try and build up a nuclear strike which will destroy your starting sector, but you will still be able to win.
Always check whether the sector you are launching a nuclear strike against has nuclear defences. You could get into a pickle if you don’t make sure!
If you keep designing lower-level inventions. You may hind that high-level designs become available to you. Remember that you need a laboratory to build planes, but you don't get one until you are onto the Victorian Em (sic). The only way to increase your technological level is to keep designing.
On later levels, you may not have enough shields to save your buildings, so remember to get all your men out before they disappear.
Remember to keep watching the shield menu to see when to evacuate buildings, but try to protect your tower, since losing this will lose you the sector.

PEGASUS A balaclava and a pair of silk pyjamas may make you
look like a Ninja, bul you still need the ancient skills to be
able to fight like one. If you can't even manage this on a com
puter game, but want to explore the levels, then you'll
probably need to use a code or two. Try typing these into the
score table: The heroism and bravery of flying around on a
horse!
What a fine warrior you cut as you swoop from the heavens to deal a fatal blow to the enemies below. But what a sad. Laughable character you look as you fall off. Only to be dealt with by the horrid creatures.

Milford Haven. D.vfed I®3 HELPING HAND 0ta Softly, softly - catchy murderer Can you help me with a couple of problems? On Operation Stealth I’ve managed to get through the security door, but I just can't work out how to get through the electric door next to the guard with the bullet-proof glass.
Also, on Cruise for a Corpse I've got as far as 9:10. But I can't find any tools or keys. I've interviewed Suzanne. Julio and Tom as far as they will let me. Please help! I'm not allowed any more games until I’ve completed these two.
Mrs Mary Spinks.
Okehampton. Devon Well, if you want some more games then I'd better see what I can do.
By the security door on Operation Stealth, imagine that you have already used the top cigarette in the case to get the fingerprint on the glass, then used the print on the panel. From here on in you should use the authorised mission you got before on the mailbox down the passage, then use the electric cable on the plug socket. Operate the razor, use it on the bin, examine the bin and then use the razor on it again. Now you can go on through the door to meet the doctor.
As far as Cruise for a Corpse goes, the fact that you haven't met Father Fabiani makes it appear that you are having the same trouble as someone last month. Go to the bar and show the note about the meeting (found in the room where you start I to the barman. He will then give you a prayer book containing a letter. Take the letter and read it before going to the dining room to meet Fabiani. Got that?
Good, I'm not going to print it again!
Escape from the future I recently purchased Terminator 2 and Escape from Colditz. But unfortunately I can't get past level two on 77 and 1 can't escape from Colditz'. Please can you give me any cheats on these two?
Mark Sinclair, Milngarie. Glasgow Oh dear. Can t get past level w o T2 N jm eh? Well we all found it far too easy to complete the whole game I hence the low mark I. Still, if you want to cheat then try this tip from Chris Brady in Birkenhead. Start the game and press P' to pause, then press all the function keys in turn. Press 7’’ to unpause and you will now be able to use the Esc key to skip levels. Unfortunately, we don’t know of any cheats for Escape from Colditz. So it's over to you readers to send one in!
Don't have a cow, man!
After purchasing an Amiga for our 11-year-old. Our son cannot gel past level one on Bart Simpson. As he can reach level 25 and over on Lemmings. I don’t think it's a brain malfunction!
We noted your Gamebusters hints saying "if you have sprayed all the purple objects but still have one goal." Etc. but he has stood outside the Springfield Cinema for so long. I fear they've changed the movie! Hence he runs out of time, bul can get the other goals on level one in a very short time. Can you suggest anything else.
Mrs T Jarmin, Leighton Buzzard. Bedfordshire Well a couple of things come to mind. If you still need a purple object to spray, then try using a coin in the phone booth next to Moe's. A woman will come out wearing a purple tracksuit, so spray her to bring the goal counter down. Another thing you could try is typing COWABUNGA when the screen with the family watching TV appears. You should then be able to play the game with infinite lives. If you want even more tips on playing the game, then the Screenplay 2 book contains a guide to completing level one.
FEBRUARY 1992 Oh fishy, fishy, fish!
I desperately need cheats for James Pond and Ghouls V Ghosts. Can you help me please?
Ben Fuller.
Luton. Bedfordshire Easy mate! For James Pond. 57 type in JUNKYARD at some point during the game. Return will toggle the cheat mode and I) will open the exit pipes to the next level. You can also select levels using the bottom row of keys on the keyboard. As for Ghouls 'n' Ghosts.
All you need type is KARENBROADHURST on the title page. There you go. Told you it was easy.
A lot of people are writing in asking for help with involved adventures, especially for Cruise for a Corpse. Unfortunately, we can't give a full description of the stages that people are at in Helping Hand, since everyone has reached a different point! If you're desperate, though, the Screenplay 2 book contains a full solution to the game which should sort out your problems If you're stuck on a particular game or have a solution to a letter printed in the magazine, then write it down and send it in to us at HELPING HAND AMIGA FORMAT, 30 Monmouth Street, Bath BA1 2BW.

If you wanted true colour on your Amiga 500 you only had one choice, until now!
Marcus Dyson is amazed at Digital Creations new feature-packed True Colour system that lets you digitise, process and paint with a 1 7 million colour palette.
True colour digitise process paint system £499 (Provisional) ¦ Digital Creations HAVING SEVENTEEN MILLION colours to play with is a most excellent prospect for anyone using the Amiga for graphics or video work, but until recently it meant having an Amiga 1500 2000 3000 fitted with a 24-bit card. Digital Creations DCTV (Digital Composite Television! Brings this immense palette to users of the humble A500. It achieves this by using a system that reinterprets the information held in a high-resolution Amiga screen display as composite video waveforms. DCTV enables the Amiga to handle and
display true colour images at the same speed and using the same amount of memory as normal high resolution animations.
A typical DCTV set-up, all reody to digitise an imoge. The Amiga has 1Mb of RAM and there ore another four in the GVP hard drive, taking it up to the magic 5Mb that are required to use oil the functions simultaneously. The video camera signal is being fed into the DCTV unit and displayed on the colour TV by feeding the DCTV output through a VCR with a video input.
Now we all know that HAM-E can do something very similar lo DCTV. And at a slightly lower price. But Ihe big catch with any True Colour system is how do you get those gorgeous images into the computer in the first place, you certainly wouldn't want to (and probably couldn't) draw them from scratch.
The great advantage of DCTV is the inclusion of a digitise function in the packaged software.
This allows you to capture images from video cameras, video cassette recorders, still video cameras or any other source that has a composite video output.
M CD C - o 'O NJ The only drawback of DCTV is that to use it fully you need a composite monitor and five megabytes of memory, which by Amiga standards is quite a lot of RAM, but if you were manipulating True Colour images on most other computers you would need a good deal more memory than this. The main features of DCTV Contact Silica Systems 081-309 1111 ? WHAT IS 'TEUE COLOUR'?
Normally, your Amiga can use only 32 colours on its screen, chosen trom Its built-in 'palette' ot 4,096. A True Colour' card is an expensive piece ot hardware that plugs into an Amiga 1500, 2000 or 3000 and extends the palette to 17 million colours, letting you use as many as you want In any one picture. It works like this. Instead ot using five bits' (binary ones or zeros) in memory to describe the colour of each pixel, which gives 2x2x2x2x2 r 32 colours, it uses 24 bits, which it you work it out gives you 24,777,216 colours. True Colour' gives photographic quality to your pictures, but
it's very expensive. For more on True Colour, have a look at Issue 30 ot Amiga Format.
Ihe package arc available to users with as little as 1 Mb of memory, but this involves running the digitiser part of the program (DCTVProi) separately to the paint program (l)CT PtiinlI.
Rather than displaying digital RGB signals DCTV uses composite video information stored in the Amiga screen display, and control codes in at the top and left of the image inform the DCTV hardware that it is a DCTV image and should be treat as so. On an RGB monitor the images look like a very coarse greeny-grey mess, which if studied carefully will just yield the general outline of the image.
But when viewed on a composite screen the image appears in all its glory , at a resolution which appears as near television quality when looked at from normal TV-viewing distances.
Setting up the DCTV hardware is a doddle, because it simply plugs into the RGB socket, and has a pass through for the normal Amiga monitor lead. If you are digitising there is another lead which plugs into the parallel port. A phono plug provides the signal for the composite monitor, and a similar plug lakes the signal from your digitising source. The RGB pass-through lead fouls the A500 power lead to an extent, but it's nothing serious.
If you don't own a composite monitor, don’t worry, because if your video recorder has a 'video in' socket you can lake the output from DCTV into this, and the RF out of your video into a normal colour television. One side effect of using this system is that you can easily record your DCTV images and animations onto video tape for storage, or to show them to your friends who don't have DCTV. Or even an Amiga for that matter. When it's used with a gcnloc and something like Scala. DCTV will allow video presentations of professional quality to be produced on any Amiga at a cost that ihe
enthusiastic amateur could afford. The desktop video revolution continues.
So much for the hardware, the true strength of DCTV lies in the Software, it's fast powerful and easy to use. If a little daunting at times, so let's look at the DCTV program, and why no-one should be w ithout it.
SPEED • • • • • Considering what It is doing. DCTV is plenty fast enough, even on a plain A500.
DOCUMENTATION • • • • • The manual helps you get started quickly and easily and covers the features step by step.
ACCESSIBILITY III!
Most ol the teatures are easily accessible via easy-to-use Interlaces on each screen.
FEATURES • • • •• Digitise, process paint and animate true colour Images. What more could you want?
VALUE • • • • It's nol as cheap as HAM-E, but then you don't need to buy a digitiser.
I m 90% sxsutr and processing using DCTVProc The DCTVProc control panel has a simple lay out and is easy to understand, oil the functions ore avoiloble through the buttons and sliders with no menu controls at all.
The file handling controls ore at the left, digitise is in the centre and imoge processing is on the right.
127 BEFORE YOU CAN use Ihe wonderful DCTVPaint software you need some images lo work on. Now creating a true colour picture from scratch is no easy matter, so most people use an image 'captured' from some other source, which could be a film or TV program (naughty but this is the sampling generation) or il could even be from your own holiday snaps. To get these images into the computer you need some kind of digitiser. The DCTV software includes just the thing, all you need is some suitable video source: a colour video camera like the one in the big picture on the left would be ideal.
The DCTV hardware has an RCA phono plug which will accept composite video information. By clicking on the digitise button on the left of the main DCTV control panel you are delivered to the DCTVProc screen. Like all the DCTV software this screen is controlled by 3D-style push buttons and sliders, a method which is both attractive and easy to use. From here you can view your source picture on the composite monitor by pressing the SCAN button. Now all you have to do is press the left mouse button and the picture will be captured, it lakes between live and ten seconds and the picture must be
still for this time, so if you are using a VCR you will need a good pause function. After waiting for a few seconds to process the image it w ill appear on the monitor ready for image processing.
The image process functions are not as extensive as those found in HAM-E's Image Professional software, but this is not so important since you have the features of the excellent DCT 'Paim at your disposal. Rather than featuring a w ide range of effects to apply to the digitised image DCTV has a few controls to improve (or degrade if you so desire) the quality of the picture.
The big difference between the image processing effects and those available in the paint program is that these are global, they affect the whole of the image, and there is nothing you can do to alter that. The effects arc subtle and it pays to play with each one at a time at first to get used to what they do. Otherwise you may end up using several at once to get an effect you really like, but can never duplicate.
If you don't like the way your picture's going you can click LAST for one level of undo or RESET to take you back lo the start.
Once you press COMM (commit) however there is no going back unless you have already saved the image at an earlier stage. *1) FEBRUARY 1992 Once you've digitised and processed your image with DCTV then you can really start to have fun with it, Marcus Dyson explores the world of pixel painting using... DCTVPai Video paint package Packaged with DCTV Hardware DELUXE PAINT THIS isn't! When the manual waxes lyrical about DCTV's universe being that of video, with over 16.000.000 colours, where operations work in chrominance and luminance, it seems at first like excessive Califomiancss. But after
playing around with DCTVPainl for even a short while you will realise that the possibilities are virtually endless.
Sure DCT'P can do most of the things you can do in Dpninl. But you have to ask yourself: "Would I want to do that in DCTVPT'.
Why would you wish to draw polygons and fill them with a dithered sixteen colour gradient when you can work on a 'real' image with a degree of sophistication that will make it difficult to tell where, and how you have manipulated the image.
Now I'm not knocking Dptiini here, it's the best at what il docs, but DCTVP does something else altogether. It is virtually a computer- based. Photo retouching package, with a little imagination, and the right images, you can create whatever illusion you desire.
This surfer and the on- looking girl have never even met (well not to my knowledge), they were both in totoHy separate photographs until last night. Using the rub through mode in conjunction with the filled rertongie ond airbrush tools brought him right out of his world and into hers.
The world wos created using blend and watercolour brushes, then cut and filled using the warp function to create this planet.
DESPITE THE VALLEYSPEAK the manual is correct. DCTVP does indeed work in terms of chrominance and luminance, but that isn't as mysterious as it first sounds. Video signals are comprised of two pans; one determines the brightness of a given pixel, and that is the luminance, the other controls its colour or chrominance. DCTVP allows you to modify these elements individually, and in a great variety of modes, enabling superb control of the picture. Another great strength of the program is the ability to rub through an image from the spare screen onto the current screen. Many programs allow
this, but DCTVP goes beyond most to allow rub through to work not just as a tint but even a graduated fill.
BELOW RIGHT: Using graduated fill a colour imoge was rubbed through onto a black- and-white one to produce this imoge.
SOLID: You ull know and love this one.
Select a colour and paint on screen with it.
Simple really! Can be used in conjunction with the FLOW to control the rate at which it is applied to the screen, thus how well it covers what is already there.
128 leaving the luminance intact. Using this you can colourisc a black-and-white image or change the hue of a colour image. Again it is affected by the flow rate of the brush.
SHADE: Almost the opposite of tint, this affects the luminance of the screen area it is used on without changing the colour. The effect depends on the currently selected brush colour. White will lighten an area, black will darken it. Again it depends on the rate of flow.
AIRBRUSH: This is the default painting mode and as far as I can tell it is almost the same as solid colour mode.
First we load our picture, this Porsche and moon montage is one of the DCTV demo images and shows what can bo done quite easily when using the program. But a white sports car is a bit too dull for my extrovert nature, so lot's see what wo can do.
TAKING YOUR CAR THROUGH DCTV PAINTSHOP Sine* if* fust the car we want to effect, and net the background, we have to make a mask to protoct the areas of tho screen which are to remain unchanged. DCTVP masks can be drawn using any of the tools and made opaque (as above), translucent or invisible, the translucent one is particularly good when deleting areas from a mask.
After loading a picture of a frog into the spare screen and using the filled rectangle tool to rub part of the image through to this screen I clipped the frog's eye to use as a fill. The paint bucket tool allows you to tile a clip in various ways to produce a patterned fill. I then filled the car's bodywork with a tint fill (to affect the colour only) at around 50 per cent flow.
RUB THRU: This allows you to replace areas of the current screen with areas of the spare screen, used with the other features of DCTVP this can give some of the most spectacular effects available with the program.
FILTER: Some colour and transitions that can be made in a video paint package are not strictly ‘legal’, that is to say they will produce affects on screen like banding, fringing and crawl. If your image was created in DCTV using the filter on option this will not be a problem, but if you paint on the picture heavily you may cause these effects to occur. By using the filter mode you can make the areas you paint on conform better to the requirements of video.
Armed wilh all these modes, most of which can be used with many of DCT 'P's tools, you arc equipped to create some amazing images.
The brush palette of DCTVP has one or two interesting brushes particularly suited to video painting, the pyramid and cone brushes both give automatic graduations. By concentrating their effects in the centre of their (respectively square and circular) shapes they are especially good at creating smooth rub throughs and fades. It is even possible to import brushes from Deliue Painl or a wide range of other Amiga programs lo use as 'clips'. A clip is a piece of a screen which has been cut out (Via the polygon tools or freehand) and can be used as a brush, as a fill, or stretched, skewed,
rotated and manipulated in many different ways.
129 The myriad features of DCT P can be rather confusing, and the way that many of them work in conjunction with one another doesn't help matters either. If you don't check that you have everything set correctly before commencing an operation you could well find yourself waiting a couple of minutes, when it was obvious after a few seconds that things were not as you planned. There is also no way of aborting most of the features once processing begins. But with a little bit of trial and error I think you'll find that this package is probably the key to making the best Amiga images we've seen
so far. Cj FEBRUARY 1992 WATERCOUOR: This interesiing mode charges your brush wilh a finite amount of paint every time you press the left mouse button. But as you move the mouse pointer the paint "runs out'. The flow setting determines how much paint is on the brush, at 100 per cent it behaves like the airbrush, at lower settings the paint runs out to nothing, but the brush remains wet. So it smears anything that it passes over.
BLEND: As it's name suggests, blend mode picks up and mixes paint as it travels over an area, as usual the amount of effect is determined by the flow setting.
SMOOTH: This basically 'averages' out the colour of all of the pixels that are under the brush using a preset algorithm, the overall effect is to actually improve the transition of areas of shading.
1 * la cjk f Th« three main paint modes are all visible on this car, at the front TINT has changed the colour while leaving the features clearly visible, in the middle SOLID has obliterated ail detail, but was still constrained by the mask, at the back SHADE has darkened the car's details without adding colour.
DCTVPaint SPEED • • • • Fas! Enough even on a basic Amiga, accelerator users would have it easy.
DOCUMENTATION • • • • Clear and concise with good tutorials, but only |ust scratches the surlace of this huge program.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • Control panels easy-to-use. But so many combinations ot effect II takes patience.
FEATURES • • • • • More than can be touched on In these two pages, almost all you need for video retouching.
VALUE • • • • Free wilh the DCTV hardware. It's a pity this software Is not available separately.

Media Direct Computer Supplies limited does not condone or encouroge the reproduction of copyrighted software Rivalry at the top of the 3D modelling tree is hotting up. The latest Real 3D version has it all AND its easy to use. A two dimensional Brian Larkman bursts through into the third dimension with... Real 3D 1.
Solid Modelling package ¦ £310 ¦ ACTIVA WHEN WE REVIEWED the original Real 3D it had the potential to be the best on the Amiga. There were some shortcomings though, but these have now been addressed.
The result is an improved, hugely powerful easy-to-use program.
New on Ihe menu front arc composite modelling tools, free form modelling, point editing, bend and twist, bump mapping, fog effects. 24-bit rendering, animated textures and morphing and key-frame animation.
Animation is also well supported with seven methods available.
The structure of the stone circles was completed quickly using simple rectangular slabs for speed of rendering. The first stone was repeated into the circle in seconds using a copy-and-rotote macro.
This wos repeated for the lintel stones and the smaller Bluestones.
The larger Trilithons were copied and mirrored from one original.
Bump mopping hod to be applied to each stone separately to avoid similarity and used the 'Ball' mapping type because all sides are seen during the animation. The light is contained in a transparent sphere with a medium level of Turbidity and smooth surface to look like o mysterious foggy 'eorthlight'.
The light has an orbit path that moves it up from the centre of the circle, through the earth's surface, up about 20 feet ond then lips off rapidly, parallel with the ground. The varying speed is controlled by the distance aport of the points that moke up the orbit.
T| m CD S3 c 0 NO NJ ? HOW 3D GRAPHICS PROGRAMS WORK There are two stages to creating a picture with any 3D graphics program: modelling and rendering.
Modelling comes first, and simply means creating all the objects you want to pul in your picture.
All objects are stored as 3D co-ordinates: so il your object was a cube, you'd store co-ordinates lor the six corners. Most 3D programs give you a lixed set ol basic shapes called primitives' (balls, cones and cubes) which you then join together or bend and distort to make your objects.
Objects are just wirelrames, but Rendering puts surfaces on your objects so that they look solid. Ray-tracing, as in Real 3D. Is the most sophisticated form ol rendering: it uses extremely complex mathematics that work out how light would bounce oil the surfaces, giving very realistic or interesting results.
Real 3D has three modules. The tri-view editor is like Sculpt 3D's but with the gadget icons gathered into a tool 'palette'. The Perspective Wire-frame view' has tools to rotate and zoom the viewpoint and set it for rendering, and can preview animations. The Solid model control panel is where resolution, lighting, anti-aliasing and other modelling functions are set. And where testing and final rendering is controlled.
A well thought out feature is the selection window in tri-view. All objects are named as they are created and are then placed in a hierarchical list. They are then selected for modifying by clicking on their name in this window. If the list is carefully set up. Primitives. Groups or whole complex objects can be selected with case and worked on. Almost all modelling functions arc available from onscreen icons. These are simple and obvious.
One fault, though, is the lack of warning when loading and saving. Anyone with brains will back-up important work, but it is possible to save a blank scene or lest over a complete week's Work instead of loading it.
Almost all Amiga 3D systems are surface or ’skin' modellers using a scries of faces or facets joined to define hollow objects. Real 3D instead uses a true solid modelling technique.
Each of the 'primitives' used is a quadratic surface - 3D graphs of mathematical functions
- created by sweeping perfectly smooth 2D curves or lines through
3D space.
Each of the 3D primitives; pyramid, prism, cuboid, sphere, cone, cylinder and hyperboloid (like a cooling tower) is a perfect, geometric, solid block. All can be cut. Drilled, glued and distorted, just like real blocks of plastic, metal, wood or stone. Complex objects can be made by sticking these building blocks together or by using one as a tool to cut into the other. If necessary a complex object can be used to cut The second section ol the animation has the 'eorthlight' returning in more solid form to wreck the circle. The stones are animated separately to give a natural looking col
lapse, but several macros were used to automate the process.
Some ol the stones were moved with rotate or key Iromes to odd a bit ol variety to the moves.
REAL 3D Available from Alternative Image 0533 440041 material from other shapes, leaving an intricate 'negative' like the 's' shaped hole in a violin.
All of this construction work can be done manually, but Real has always provided a number of special 'combination' tools to automate the process. A Fence tool links rectangles together cdge-to-cdge; a Tube tool links spheres and cylinders alternately to make smooth bending tubes like neon signs: truncated cones arc linked along a straight axis to form smooth Lathed objects with a perfect circular cross section. A lot of work has been put into adding useful new' combination tools for the latest version. The most powerful new tool however is the conical tube tool, where spheres arc joined
to make a tube, but the sphere sizes can vary and they are joined by truncated cones. The potential for robot fingers, tentacles, shells, buds and other organic forms is immense.
The addition of these new combination solid tools broadens Real’s scope, but some objects with flowing, irregular lines are impossible to create from solids. So, giving you the best of both worlds: free-form modelling and point editing of faceted surfaces have been added. Typically, the method chosen is innovative and powerful, yet easy to understand and use. All free-form models are based on curves and meshes that are quite similar to the surface patches used by Forms In Flight.
A simple curve is created with a rubber banded line, adding new points onto the end of the curve with each left mouse click until a right click sets it. The curve can be left open or closed into a loop. A circular loop or a spiral curve can be made with the click of an icon. A mesh is created by sending one curve along the path of a second curve in a variety of ways so that irregular tubes, doughnut shapes, and even complex forms like a bath or bicycle saddle can be modelled complete in seconds.
Once Ihe mesh is created to your satisfaction, it can be edited in a number of ways.
Individual points or groups of points can be selected and transformed with any of the 133 FEBRUARY 1992 Modify tools, and curves and meshes can be joined or broken, opened or closed, sub-divided, remapped or 'smoothened'. (Subdivision adds extra points to a curve without changing it. Remapping adds points allowing a jagged curve to more closely fit its ideal 'spline' curve, and 'smoolhening' removes or moves points that disturb an otherwise smooth mesh.) Remap is immensely powerful because it allows objects to be constructed with a coarse, blocky structure for ease of manipulation and
memory saving, then adds points for a smooth appearance when rendering. Whole objects or curves can also be 'bent' using one of 24 different bending functions.
Overall the new freeform modelling tools, added to complement the powerful solid modelling system, surpasses other packages, even some that specialise in surface modelling. The only criticism is some functions that arc supposed to be real-time are a bit slow on all but the most powerful Amigas. It is a professional package however and 3D modelling will always require the fastest machines available.
The early version of ReaI was very fast at rendering, but the final images didn't really compare with Turbo Silver or Imagine. The Material Requester though, now has control over specular reflections, and the 'fogginess' of a transparent material, as well as several sorts of surface mapping, and colour gradients.
WET DREAMS?
The water in this sequence is perhaps the most effectively animated water ever seen on the Amiga - and it was amazingly simple to do.
Bump mapping in Real 3D takes the red value of each pixel on the mapped IFF brush and uses it to determine the height or depth of the bump. The transition from pixel to pixel is graduated smoothly, hiding the squareness of pixels.
A small brush (20x30 pixels) of random dots was produced in shades of pure red. The palette is a gradient over the 32 lo-res colours from black to red and back to black. To animate the bumpmap the brush was picked up and saved 30 times. The only difference between the frames is that the colours were cycled once for each brush.
The effect is that the level of red in each dot ramps up to full red and then down to black during the 30 frame sequence. When enlarged greatly within Real 3D each dot makes a smooth transition from trough to wave and with a reflective surface looks very much like water. By changing the level of red sequentially frame by frame the bumps get higher and lower like real waves. Simple, really!
BEND AND SHAPE These are just some of the 24 ways in which you can bend an original shape to produce the effect you want.
All objects in Real 3D are created from primitives which you manipulate and change.
Real 3D is now such a complete package that it is difficult to find any major criticisms.
There are a few minor bugs: setting an object to be unshaded lends to make it pure white rather than its set colour. The lack of a loading and saving warning can also be a major problem. Especially if you are tired and careless - often the condition of computer animators in the wee small hours.
The manual is in need of full tutorials, especially for bump mapping. It is also time the macro was savablc. It would be wonderful if several could be set up and assigned to 'F* keys and or a 'macro' icon. When rendering, soft-edged shadows would help get away from the hard-edged computer look. But it has only one clear rival. Imagine, but Real SD is much easier, and certainly more fun to use. I know what I will be doing in the New Year... 5 The most importanl is 'Bump' mapping. When selected for a material, the red level of each pixel mapped on the surface determines the apparent height or
depth of the texture at that point. At normal Amiga resolutions Real has caught up with the excellent rendering capabilities of Imagine and is faster.
For 24-bit rendering Real has an edge because it is fast. Speed is important for fine tuning an image and trying lots of variations of ideas. Like Imagine. Real slows down when you use transparent and reflective surfaces - and the new freeform models do drag the rendering down. Real's speed edge seems to be based on using Solid models.
Animation has always been a strong point w ith Real SI). The system used is simple and intuitive yet very versatile, especially as the whole program is based on a hierarchical structure of objects to begin with. There are seven different animation methods which can be used on their own or you can add to them.
The simplest technique is to animate the observer using the Wireframe view. Here, simple gadgets allow you to zoom in and out interactively, recording your moves, frame-by- frame. This could be the only animation you use. Or it could be used to add increased atmosphere and professionalism to a detailed animation of the objects in your scene.

problems with angular vedarisation ore apparent in this
imoge. The 'steps' behind the head and down the inside Iront

hours and dcleat the object of using a vectorising program.

A curve can also be inserted between two points so a degree of smoothing can take place, but to do a whole image may lake time.
Saving is easy and most file formats arc supported including ProDraw Clips. Real.TD objects. Sculpt scenes. IFF images. HPCL.
PostScript (lines), and even the opposition DigiWorks3D formal.
137 FEBRUARY 1992 Race Trace is easy once you become familiar with it. Most tools have keyboard equivalents; ihe zooming, scrolling and centring system lake a bit of getting used to and Ihe infinite undo makes experimenting easy. Nevertheless you can't help feeling most of the work could be done automatically, and detailed editing done in the modelling program.
The program is nicely implemented but it is the final images are not what they should be.
Unless you spend a long time editing. Coupled w ith the massive files that it seems to produce, the verdict goes against Race Trace. Lets hope version 2 .0 is more effective. 'I) at half the intended brightness. (During editing the 'active' polygon becomes brighter.) You are asked if you want holes lo be detected.
Holes in the bitmap (pixels in the original background colour) can Ik rilled without affecting the background surrounding the object (a problem with Pixel .ID). The finished object is then ready to save or edit.
Race Trace Fditing can be a bit confusing at first. The non-standard icons, and the default automatic scrolling, zooming and centring take getting used to. The curious wav Race Traee produces its vectors soon becomes apparent. All lines are horizontal, vertical or at 45 degrees. While this diKs speed up the conversion process, it defeat the object of getting rid of the pixels, leaving a stepped outline. This is the main drawback of the program, especially when compared lo Pixel .11). Unwanted angular vectors can Ik modified with the range of editing tools provided. Any polygon can be selected
with a right mouse click and points inserted or removed. All removed points can be restored with an almost SPEED • • • • Very (asl at the expense of sophistication DOCUMENTATION • • • Straightforward and informative.

Zt WIGI. _ (ferdic) 70% RACE TRACE is available from Alternative Image 0533 440041 CURRKNTLY. Computer graphics is forced to support two different ways of representing ihe world. Bitmap painting is easy to use and understand, and Ills in well w ith the dot-based printers most of us use. It also carries a penalty
- jagged edges and hlocky enlargements!
Vector graphics is more difficult to use. But has a wonderful range of transformations and prints at maximum resolution of the printer.
Working in 31). Vector graphics arc essential. But at times, bitmapped images have to be used, especially for objects with complex outlines like logos. This schizophrenic state has produced a number of programs designed lo bridge the gap between the two styles of image-making. The latest one for the Amiga is Race Traee from RGB Software. (No relation to RGB Studios, despite the images used here. I The two previous bitmap vectorisation systems. DigiWorks M) and Pixel .11). Race Traee offers the full colour conversion of Pixel plus the line editing abilities of Digitcarks.
The key to success with all bitmap-to-vcc- tor conversion systems, is the selection and preparation of Ihe bitmapped image. During conversion, the program creates vectors along every colour edge - so the image should have smooth boundaries. The best source of images is clip art that has already been made 'pixel- simple'. For example the Real Things series.
If vou must use your own images, an RIB (remove isolated pixels) tool helps to some extent. Nevertheless, digitised pictures and images that have used dithering to increase the number of apparent colours or lo get shading effects, still cause problems. Careful use of the Blend and Smooth tools in Deluxe Paim works well, but ideally the vectorisation program should include some automatic bitmap smoothing and vector line straightening uk Is itself. Race Traee does not. Offering manual editing instead. But we are going too quickly.
Lets have a look at what Race Trace does.
As a 'tool' with a single-minded task, it should be straightforward. Race Trace is to an extent, though the editing tools take getting used to. On start-up you are asked what sort of file you want - IFF or RaccTrace - then given a selector to choose one. Only 32 colour. 32(1 x 25b lo-res images can be used, though other resolutions should be av ailable stxin.
The image is loaded lo a blank screen and you trace an area or the w hole screen. Next an 'alert' asks if you want lo trace all colours or a selection. Choosing a selection brings up a palette box. Colours are selected by clicking on the image; it would be nice if they could be selected from the palette as well. A right button click starts the vectorisation. This is very fast, though crashes are not uncommon.
3D graphics give you accurate and stunning pictures. But if you've got a dead flash 3D modelling package you're going to be a bit miffed if your work has jagged and bitmapped edges.

Tel: 0582 491949 GRAPHING UTILITY Charts & Graphs takes the spreadsheet format up a level. Treating dull numeric data as an art lorm rather than just a simple exercise in graph making. But will you ever need this amount of options more than about once in a lifetime?
Charts & Graphs Charting and graphing utility ¦ TRSL ¦ $ 49.95 additional disks. These hold the example files and the clip art files. All files on these disks (save for the text) are in IFF format and they are targeted at tarting up your work. Images included on disk include bottles of aspirin, and all the credit cards you have ever lusted after in your life. These images can be used as backdrops or as brushes. There are also some example charts. These come full of legends (the small pieces of text which delineate the values and names given to the various pieces of data on a graph), interlacing
line charts, and even a few ideas for creative constructions.
Generally C & G works well with very few major quibbles. It has a well-built feel to it which is nicely complemented by an impressive looking front and user interface. The whole thing could do with being a little friendlier - it seems to he aimed at the person who is used to working with a spreadsheet, which is a similar concept, but just different enough to give rise to irritating confusions.
Aside from this quibble, if you have a serious need to produce more than one truly impressive graphic illustration of your sales figures a year, then C & G could fill a niche. O mscommoFmEN ms men tt- rt-v ___.

u ?stern y Charts & Graphs SPEED • • • Zippy oven on an
unaccelerated Amiga, works with all models. One disk load
DOCUMENTATION • • • • Excellent. In depth 113 page tutorial.
But then again manual has to be faultless etc ACCESSIBILITY • •
If you are a spreadsheet user you II have a start, everyone
else will need the excellent manual.
FEATURES •••• Extremely well featured, everything from 3D pie charting to Post Script printing support.
VALUE • • This is an excellent package for professional presentations, but that’s It.
Same as any other: just type it in at the initial work screen, but unlike some reviewers, do remember to save it as a data file as soon as you are happy with it. The program then deals w ith the data. Not only will it form it into neat images, it will also calculate it. Yet again a hint that this might be a glorified spreadsheet leaps to the mind: but no. The only calculations that C & G carries out are those needed by itself to construct the graph or charts.
Unlike a spreadsheet though, you w ill not be able to use exponentials, or geometric operands. You can. However, add as well as subtract column values in order to create new columns of data. C & G also comes with two CHARTS AND GRAPHS is available from American Software Distribution 010-217 3842050
- 4 WtGt-. _ ferdic) 65% IF YOU THOUGH T lhai chart and graph
making was a simple process requiring no more than a
calculator, a few coloured pencils and the will to make figures
look good, then think again.
Churls S Graphs is the kind of heavy duly utility that takes a simple process and complicates it beyond all belief. This is mainly because there is so much to the program. For a start, the manual is a chunky 230-odd pages. It details everything from an excellent tutorial that takes you from step zero, what actually to do when confronted by the forbodingly blank working screen, to step lots, called Making a Borderless Transfer Slate I And thank heavens for this section of the manual. Because, unless you arc somehow (elepathically linked to the art of making charts, this program does little
to help you along.
Essentially you are faced with a working screen that bears more than a striking resemblance lo a spreadsheet. Clicking on the right mouse button brings up the menu options.
These arc Graphs. Display. Drawing and Attributes. Once you have your data entered into the spreadsheet look-a-like (or loaded from disk), these options come to the fore.
For example, in the case of the normally rather dull har chart, you can decide to use IFF format icons (Brushes) such as little Amigas to denote the relative values you have defined for your graph. Any IFF images in fact, could be used for this purpose: and at last it becomes clear as to the true use of Chans & Graphs.
There is no way. With all of these options, that you could ever again show those clients a dull looking set of figures.
There is even a colour Postscript option that was added at the last moment which means that you can produce truly professional looking work if you do have access to a PS-compatible printer.
Once you have got bored w ith simply overlaying small icons on to bar charts, you might like to provide your work superbly rendered.
Loading these is as easy as the Brushes, just click on the Graphs menu at the top of the screen and the rest is child's play.
If bar charts are not your favourite way of having fun w ith figures, that's no problem to C & G either. You can choose from pie. Line and column set-ups. There are also four colour options to choose from depending on your sense of aesthetic and. More importantly, on the ability of your printer to cope. These four options are: 16 colour, eight colours, four colours and two colours.
The pics are undoubtedly the flashy end of the market here. You have everything at your disposal from backdrops lo 3D rendering.
Creating the basic data for a pie chart is the Stats and data. The mere mention of these two words can send people to sleep. But here's a utility to wake them up with its colourful and 3D approach to your annual figures. Tim Smith makes it as easy as pie.

hat. If you are using the Sequencer One samples provided, then
the bass drum sample on this month's coverdisk is best, along
with the snare and hi-hat sounds from the Sequencer One program
disk given awav last month. If you wish to use your ow n
samples, then choose a low. Flat bass drum sound with a lot of
resonance to give a solid 4 4 rhythm. The hi-hat sound should
be as clean as possible and the snare sound should be a light,
electronic sounding instrument.
As for other instruments, the Acoustic- Bass sound from the Sequencer One disk fits the bill quite well. If you are using a MIDI instrument, try to use a low. Analogue-sounding bass with a 'fat' sound. To add extra percussion, use a Kraftwerk-style electronic click to add an edge (Robodrum on this month's disk is just right).
RHYTHM Oj| C 3=
- fcee'ei 82 The main thread of techno music is the fact that the
bass drum simply hits on the four main beats of a bar. So set
track one to play the bass drum, then go into the step editor.
Keep the note type as eighth notes (two notes linked by a single bar) and place a note on the four main beats of the first bar.
Yol'YK NO 1)01 H I heard a loi of dance music being played these days. You hear it on the radio, on Ihe television and in the charts.
The most prominent styles of danee music, though, have to be techno and hip-hop. But how oit earth do you go about producing tins kind of music on your humble Amiga '.’ In the first of a series of 'style tutorials' we hope lo give you an insight into the methods and techniques used, so that you can produce your own dance tracks w ith Seq uin~cr One.
158 All the tutorials in this series are designed to give you an impression of the techniques used in creating tunes in a set style, so we will be concentrating on the overall approach involved, rather than giving you a basic step- by-step guide. If we just told you what to do every step of the way you would only he able to create one song I Instead ot this simplistic method, we will be outlining tried-and-tested methods for creating a sty le.
FEBRUARY 1992 NO POP, NO STYLE Modem danee music falls into two major categories: techno and hip-hop. Although there is a considerable amount of cross-over between the two. And both styles are based around it very percussive feel, they are in fact quite different. Techno has a very fast, and very aggressive hi-tech feel. Hip-hop on the other hand is a much more laid-back style, with a 'looser' feel, both in pace and sound.
For this reason, this tutorial will be split into two different parts.
SUMMARY As you will see. Both styles are based around a solid rhythm pattern, but each has its very own distinctive feel The examples shown here are hv no means 'hard and last' rules, since the whole basis of dance music is to change and adapt as other influences are assimilated into the music. However, these guidelines may he useful as you experiment with your own dance tunes. Move on up and gel on down I Patch Sanple Nane Size (K) 1 BASSDRUM.IFF 1 ?

The latter usually lends to be far less upfront and manic than its y ounger counterpart. For this reason you'll need some more traditional and 'laid back' sounds to play around with.

60s James Brow n feel to them. A closed hi- hat is really useful for livening up the percussive track.
Also use a straightforward electric or slap bass sound for the main bassline and if you can get some v ocal or turntable scratch sounds in there tool RHYTHM One of the most popular rhy thm styles in hip-hop is the 'Funky Drummer' riff - this is recognisable by the fact that there are more snare beats than there are bass beats!
Start by setting up your bass drum sound and entering two eighth beats at the beginning of the bar and place further beats in positions four (one place after main beat two), six (one place before main beat three) and eight (the last position of the bar).
Next, set up a track to play the snare sound and go into ihe step editor. Switch to sixteenths and place a note on main beat two of the bar. Then place notes at positions eight, ten and thirteen (which is that fourth main beat). For both the bass drum and snare, make sure that the notes plav the sound at the normal pitch.
FTp SEQUENCER ONE hi-tech sound, it may be worth playing the notes higher than you would normally play a snare sound.
Go into the step editor and set the note type to sixteenths (two notes linked by two bars). Place a beat one place in front of the second main beat (three steps along) and one just after it (five steps along) and a scatter a few around the last two beats (but try to keep clear of the positions of the bass drum beats.

track three to play the open hi-hat. Go to the step editor and
select to play eighth notes, then place notes between the main
beats of the first bar. This will give you the cyclic ‘one-two
one-two' feel that is darned ty pical of techno.
BASSLINE Techno basslines are usually fairly repetitive, something like 808 State’s Cubik. So you only need to program a simple pattern onto the first bar. Other changes are generally carried out by changing the key of a bass pattern rather than programming a whole new set of notes.
Set track four to play your bass sound and go into the step editor. The notes to be entered should either be eighth or sixteenth notes, to keep the rapid feel.
Enter a pattern based mainly around a single key . But shift the notes up or dow n an octave occasionally to add interest. Alternatively, keep the notes in a simple pattern, but play the last few notes slightly further down the scale so the bar 'trails off. This will give it a more looped feel, making it easy to dance tol r C‘= ’!

To emphasise the bassline. Set up the next track to play the electronic bleep or click sound, then go to Sequencer One BASSLINE Hip-hop basslines are much more straight forward than their techno counterparts, they in fact sound like they have been played by a bass guitarist.

on short bursts of two. Three or four. This w ill give the
track a lighter, percussive feel and avoid making the track
sound as though it is plodding along. One more thing - before
you play the track, push the tempo up to about 130 bpm to give
it more pace.

After the main bassline has been entered, just slam in a few samples to add emphasis to the main beats of the bar. Turntable scratch noises are dead useful, or the electric guitar sample on this month's disk is real handy as well.

It's software written by enthusiasts and, although the copyright remains with the authors, they give their permission for anyone to use or distribute it without paying for it. They're allowed to attach conditions, ie you must not change it if you give it to a friend, and you should keep Ihe original documentation with it on the disk.lt is effectively free and includes games, programs (ulilities) and serious software (word processors etc) as well as demos.
What's it all about then Pat McDonald? Well this issue I've gathered together the best in PD utilities: fab little games, educational stories for the kids, spreadsheets, virus checkers:just read on dear reader.
DIGITAL ACCESS A DIGfTAL ACCESS Yel another magazine on a disk, this time w ith an easy approach and a diversity of ideas. Digital Access was formerly The Disk, but underwent a name change due to two disks being bundled for £2.50 rather than just one. It's nice to see someone’s got some common sense.
Nuke is autorun at first lo see off any lurking viruses. This should prevent the Saddam virus knob- bling the production again. After that, two disks of varied and useful material remain.
Games wise, there's Leap, a small but diverting little number roughly along the lines of Jumpin' Jack (move up the screen through gaps which appear from lime to time). It's got quite a fine control method and takes ages to attain any proficiency at the game.
Also available is Escape, a simple but original offering. Moving from safe square to safe square, you have to avoid staying too long on tiles which vapourisc as you move across them. The pace goes from an incredibly simple first level to a fiendish second, and the third is a real twister. After that. I don't know.
On the utilities is Agnus Tinder, which tells you what model of the Agnus chip is currently fitted to your Amiga: DML. A hex memory editor useful for techie browsing of a computer's memory ; a file editor (like a word processor hut less sophisticated): and a disk copying program - better than the AmigaDOS Diskcopy command but far short of perfect.
Also included is a batch of articles, ranging from building your own autofire switch or printer lead, to copying printer drivers and an explanation of Guru numbers (crash routines). The angle is on using Workbench 1.3 rather than the latest 2.04. That aside, there's a whole stack of other things of note on this disk that I have not mentioned. Although no one thing is gloriously useful, there's quite a lot of detail about lots of different subjects. Broadens your horizons a little, and as with all disk magazines they tend to get better as the scries progresses.
DBM Have you ever wonted to hove o multitasking view directly into the computer's memory? DML will do this.
STORY LAND 2 A VUGANUTS 1206 mu rooIbal1 Q Maiflo Land book n relt.
• opoh A The bask principles ol Storylond 2 are easy to grasp -
choose a toy to help you in your quest. No matter whot, you'll
pick the right one in the end.
This is a very different sort of educational program.
Starting from the innocent question "Do you care for animals?" It progresses on into a fun pastime for those aged scvcn-to-nine. With a little parental guidance.
The basic plot is that you have to use toys in a bid to rid some Never Never lands of a w itch problem. The tasks range from colouring in animals with a set of felt-tipped pens lo proving that you're worthy of entry into Toyland (forget your Ted and you don't get in).
From a child's perspective, all would appear to be well. Yes. You do have to use the keyboard occasionally to type in a magic-spell word lo travel (researched from the story book toy in the game). The game pauses at these points.
Technically speaking, it's very original on the design side, with a cute start (a letter personally addressed to you) and controlled mainly by the mouse.
A few icons could have sorted out most of these but the magic spell would still have to be typed.
From a parent's point of view , it's a nightmare scenario. The game is released by the Epping Forest Animal Rights group, and takes great pains to gain a child's interest. At the end of the game, a message appears, explaining that the bad guys in the story are fake but there really arc animal experiments going on.
Doing nasty dissections and vivisections.
If you want lo end up explaining these terms to your child, line. The game does not. It entertains for a while, leaves some disturbing doubts, and is best scene as an amateur production of a much greater idea. Cute, but try before you let loose.
VISICALC 17 BIT 1479 It's getting hard to be nostalgic about what you find in the Public Domain, but at long last a spreadsheet turned up. What an ugly duckling it turned out to be.
VisiCalc is a port of a very old style of spread sheet, demanding lots of keypad usage and explaining them in odd accountanl-speak terms.
There are plenty of people who are actually used lo this sort of thing but have found little available at so cheap a price. VisiCalc may be old fashioned but it does the job. If you want to work out complex problems based on simple maths (budgeting, forecasts and so on) you might find VisiCalc to be quite invaluable.
Rsi o £ D cz CD LU It may lake you a while to get into the program.
The documentation is thorough, but a little bland, and a couple of test runs arc needed to see the ins and outs of ihe procedures. But it s all there, and it works, nice one Robert Bond.

can get a listing of the commands and what they do.
TOO SEXY UTILITIES 1 7 BIT 1466 It's good lo see more and more utilities being released on the Amiga, especially in a simple form of icons on a Workbench disk. Of major consequence is John Veldthuis' newish Virus Checker 15.26, a program with an unsophisticated front end but bang up to date at catching viruses. It's set to run as the disk starts.

Is a benchmarking program for comparing speeds between different Amiga systems. The last program appears to be fairer than many others.
Without going into detail, there's tons more material on this disk: some game cheats. Workbench Hacks, label printers and similar paraphernalia. 1 found little of it to be familiar, which is what makes the disk speAMIGA FORMAT Wm FEBRUARY 1992 X" A- f® 1 r J
• NS «lll As J«t up, mCAD is reolly only useful for detailing
el«- tronic schematics. With some work in creating the basic
building blocks, you could draw virtually anything with it.
17 BIT 1480 I've been hoping to sec this for a while, as CAD (Computer Aided Design) PD programs are rare. I'm not convinced it's the best there is. But it can be used for a variety of simple design chores.
It relics on grouping lines, boxes and curves, to form the basic building blocks for technical drawings.
As configured in this version. MCAD is really just for designing electronic schematic diagrams.
Having said that, though, if you were to spend the time and effort you could design just about anything which fitted on the design paper. The biggest fault of mCAD is that it has no zoom mode (most CAD programs let you design on different scales, so that you can design to the technical accuracy that you want.
It's a shame that it turned out to be quite limited, but mCAD still has its uses. Running in 16 colour interlaced high resolution graphics is a pain on a TV.
But if you're just a humble Amiga user you could still find it to be of use.
RIM DATABASE 17 BIT 1481 Relational Information Manager - I think that's what it stands for. This incarnation of what is basically a database is very hard to fathom - all of the explanation appears to have been either hidden or removed.
RIM is very slow because essentially it is relational in nature. From simply moving from command mode ggpsars-" mum it i44i laTHa wk IpHto
1) 2 omj t* mc or m hwmx Bnvb 1 Deep ond dark is the best way to
look at the RIM database. It's undoubtedly very powerful, but
unless you know a bit about relational databoses I'd give it a
miss.
To explanation mode takes an age. RIM was ported from a different computer using Fortran, which could explain a lot towards why it's so odd.
More precisely, relational databases treat information as being interrelated connections rather than masses of data. RIM is certainly fussy as you conduct your investigations, with a terminal wait while it digests your later command for any form of error. It's best left to the students of this form of using a database
- sort of an experimental program.
BUG BASH AMIGANUTS OK. So this one isn't strictly speaking PD, but there haven't been many releases and it's the next best thing.
Bug Bash will cost you a fiver, which some might consider exorbitant but it isn't bad for a game these days.
With the whole works (programming, graphics and sound) done by one person. A R Cummins, it's hardly surprising the game has limitations. What is good is it's a simple, colourful blasting game.
Many will not like it. Because the basic plot consists of cleaning up a garden by hand and getting rid of pests using chemicals. I don't care, it's only a game for goodness sake, and it comes into its own when you're after some fun during the odd break.
AMIBASE II AMIGANl TS 1036 This is very good news. Amibase II used to in fact be licenscwarc, but now an upgrade to Amibase III is available. The old program has been re-released by the author (one Keith A Grant of KAG productions) as shareware. What this means effectively is that you can have a play with the old version, but before paying for either it or an upgrade to the new system. That's the best way to do it.
Amibase II is controlled directly through the keyboard. With the mouse seriously under-used. Having said that though, everything is signposted. If you want to try a quick. PD database that is essentially usable, then get this program.
ASSASSIN'S PRINT UTILS 17 BIT 1468 There's a colourful character called the Assassin? So long as they produce compilations as good as this one that's fine by me. If you have an Epson compatible languishing without use. This disk could sort you out.
There's the inevitable floppy disk label printer, which is actually rather good: a name and address database for mailing lists and a program to keep track of your software collection, for finding out exactly what is on each disk. Simple tasks, but very useful.
MOD PRO VI .92 A VUG AN UTS 1068 Steve Marshall's constant quest for the perfect music module player continues with the latest release of Module Processor. This program was designed with a unique view in mind - to be able to import music modules saved from different programs (NoiseTracker.
Med and so on) and save them as executable files, ready to be played from disk. Most of the recent changes to Mod Pro have been necessary due to recent Med and OctoMed updates. If you're into compiling music disks. Mod Pro is very handy. The latest version can display IFFs while playing a module, although complex pictures can distort eight channel OctoMed files (it places a bit of a strain on the computer). Still, it's a great solution considering its problems.
If you want to *at up your own music collections, Mod Pro con be very handy. It can read module types from several different progroms (all of the mainstream ones in fact).

Did you buy the January 1992 issue of Amiga Format? If you did, then you are now the proud owner of a fully working copy of Gajits’ highly acclaimed Sequencer One music package (previous RRP £89.99). Not bad for the price of a magazine!
Now why not get the most from Sequencer One by taking advantage of the special offers currently available?
You could upgrade to the brand new Sequencer One Plus for even more music-making power and flexibility, expand your sounds with the Sample Series, and who knows, perhaps you could even write your own hit record with help from The Hit Kit! Music composition system... For full details of these and other special offers, see elsewhere in this magazine, or phone Gajits today on 061-236 2515! If you were unlucky enough to miss January’s issue of Amiga Format, give us a call anyway!

GULF WAR CONFLICT AKIRA PICTURES PD SOFT, DISK 2133 17 BIT, DISK 1488 A couple of years ago. A fairly young group called the Rebels put together a demo called COMA. This strange piece was a combination of w ild dancefloor music and wacky images, the result looking like some of the acid music videos seen at the time. There have been a few- similar demos since then, but none of them have been as good... until now that is.
Wildfire have been coding for a while now. But their latest megademo has to be their finest production yet. The intro is fairly tame, with some images of the team and a pretty tame soundtrack. Soon enough, things start hotting up with the Tekk-No demo. This is the only piece of techno-music with graphics that comes up to the high standard set by COMA. If this wasn't enough, the disk finishes up with the credits and a superb track which manages to work breakbeats in with atmospheric strings and a cut-up sample from 'Papa was a Rolling Stone". Absolutely wonderful!
ASTRONOMY SLIDESHOW PD SOFT, DISK 21 14 177 If you read our Christmas issue, you will have noticed that a few members of the Amiga Format team rated an obscure Japanese film by the name Akira as one of the top movies of the year. The film was based on a series of comics that have been available for some lime, and the comics form the basis of this demo.
Budding Amiga artist Robert Iveson has drawn a series of frames from the comic, including the main characters of Kaneda. Tetsuo and Akira himself. The quality of the pics varies a great deal, ranging from the excellent 'Gathered Light' pic to the rather dodgy collection of Akira logos. Still, it's based on a superb story and could well prompt people into getting hold of the film. Make sure you see the special subtitled Japanese version though!
FEBRUARY 1992 This one should appeal to space fans and lovers of all things ambient. The disk contains a series of digitised shots of a number of interesting cosmic forms, including constellations and nebulae. If this Is your specific field of interest, then you can look on the shots as reference material. So if you arc an ambient fan. Just load it up. Turn the lights out. Stick your headphones on and listen to The Orh's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld' ¦ Then just drift away... ? WHAT ARE DEMOS?
They are produced by people who want to show off their creative or programming skills, or the abilities of the Amiga They fall into three kinds: animations (cartoons on disk: Looney Toons type stuff or sci-fi spaceships;, music demos (all kinds of styles, but with a bias to modem computer music and House), and programmer demos (whizzy.
Colourful effects designed to show off technical prowess). Demos are also an enormous cult thing WILDFIRE MEGADEMO PD SOFT, DISK 21 37 Aha! I bet you were wondering when we were going to get round to this issue's Eric Schwartz animation! This one is a paean to the recent events down Iraq way. Covering such elements as Stealth fighters, smart missiles, news propaganda and surrendering enemy troops.
Although the subject matter is rather heavy (manI.
The cartoon is very- impressive, being one of Eric's best so far. Even if you still look on the war as a taboo subject. Gulf War Conflict injects enough sense of humour to make it entertaining without being distasteful or maudlin. Check it out for a laugh.
THE THING 17 BIT, DISK 1475 After including a challenger to COMA as the best acid demo yet. Along come Rebels, the originators of the acid demo, with a new disk containing a hip dance tune from Static. Bleeps, thuds, bangs and vocal loops are the order of the day here, culminating in a wild and frenzied danccfloor-style thrash. The visuals are pretty mundane, being the usual PD 'scrolly message' type claptrap. Still, you don't have to look at the screen to listen to the music!

~~~ TWO TOMS MUSIC Afler releasing iheir two-disk version of The Shamen's 'Progen'. Two Toms have relumed with two double-disk music demos. Both need two drives lo ran. Bul you can listen to the first half of each track if you have one drive.
500 THINGS - COMEBACK 1 7 BIT, DISK 1 507 Jbj1 ' «c=» **» ff So»o« C* lie Cu«wo»th i99i Two Toms This disk was originally sent in by the bloke who put the disk together himself, a talented young man by the name of Nic Cusworth. There isn't much in the way of graphics - just a couple of atmospheric black-and- white shots - but the four pieces of music are superb.
The styles range from the sleazy jazz feel of 'Dr Seuss Blues' to more heavy-going electronics.
Man Machine' couples Terminator samples with snatches of Depeche Mode and dance beats, while 'Haw'.v the Stomach' takes pieces of Scanners to produce a more hard-hitting track. The crowning glory has to be 'Satan'. Not a cover of the hit dance track, but a much more doomy affair very much in the style of heavy electronic bands such as Thrill Kill Kult and Nit er Ebb. The track has been liberally splattered with Satanic samples from horror film trailers to add that extra 'evil' touch. To be quite honest, if this music was a record I'd rush out and buy it straightaway!
180 BAGPIPE FRENZY 1 7 BIT, DISK 1483 You’ve heard PD techno music, you've heard PD versions of chart hits and you've even heard PD renditions of classical music, but this disk contains something you won't have seen on the PD circuit before - bagpipe music. Well, every other style has been exploited, so it had to happen sooner or later!
FEBRUARY 1992 What we've got here is a collection of tunes played on that classic instrument, the pigskin piano - and what an awful din it makes! If you fancy yourself as a kilted musician playing in the romantic setting of a heather-covered moor, then listen to this and put yourself in your dream. No. On second thoughts it could put you off the idea for life!
YELLO - RUBBERBAND MAN 17 BIT, DISK 1521 This is a version of one offbeat Swiss electronic duo.
Yello. Taken from the most recent releases off the album 'Baby'. Rubberband Man' wasn't a huge chan success, despite the album receiving critical acclaim and the fact that the single is quite a catchy little number. Rubberband Man' is lively and at the same time mellow track that evokes the strange mood that only Yello can accomplish (that’s enough Melody Maker- stvle reviewing - Ed).
This version is very good indeed, being a well- recorded sample of the entire track. The picture is a wacky, colourful affair, fitting well with the Yello image, but it would have helped if the name of the band had been spelt correctly! If you're a Yello fan.
Then this is worth collecting as a novelty. If. On the other hand you simply like this demo, then why not have a listen to the album!

1 7 BIT, DISK 1 497 This is a collaboration between a DJ and a member of the European Cyberpunk band Cassandra Complex.
Utah Saints managed to notch up a sizable amount of chan success this year with the single 'What Can You Do For Me?' The use of the Doo-da-da-da-dee' sample taken from the Eurythmics" old number one ‘There Must Be an Angel’ fitted well with ihe dance beat produced by the two crazy musicians and really captured the imagination of quite a large number of elub-goers last summer.
Two Toms have given the dance hit the old PD demo treatment, and have managed, once again, lo cram the entire song onto two disks. The sample quality is slightly more scratchy than Iheir other tracks, bul it still sounds pretty impressive, and the strange picture is better than the shot that accompanied the 'Progen' demo! Unfortunately, as with Iheir other demos, you'll need two drives to listen to the whole track, so you'll either have to buy the single or a second floppy-disk drive if you want to listen to it all.

0924 366982 There have been quite a few slideshows based on the film Aliens, but this one has to be the most polished yet seen on the PD circuit. The intro is a very atmospheric animation based around the Aliens logo, which leads neatly into the well-presented slideshow itself.
Each screen contains four pictures, with the plot of the film unfolding on each frame. Although the shots are only in mono, the picture quality is very good, capturing the dark and shady feel of the film. The backing music isn’t that hot. But you can t have everything can you? As a piece of Aliens memorabilia, this is one of the better items available.

Soulhend-on-Sea. Essex SS1 2ND BIGGER CHIPS I am thinking of buying a SupraRAM 500RX. I know it can take I Mb chips and is fully expandable to 8Mb. Rut is it possible to pul tw o I Mb chips together (piggyback them via some sort of circuit board) thus having two I Mb chips where normally there is only one. If it's not possible, is there anyone who produces a 2MI chip?
Workbench Are your bytes burning you out? Are your disk drives in a dither? Well Pat-tastic McDonald is alert and aloof with all the answers.
Ihe Qtcc F.X-310 drive you mentioned in Amiga Format 29 does have a Citizen mechanism. I can also tell you that it can get very noisy, especially when it searches through a disk. It was so had that when I First bought it. I thought it was chewing my desk to bits. Mind you. I've had no real problems over the past y ear.
W ZARB. LONDON First, a word of explanation - a Imh (mega bit) chip consists of one million individual switches. A I Mb (mega byte) expansion would need eight such chips in order to work (eight bits = one byte).
You could indeed piggyback two chips as you describe, but all that would happen is that they would duplicate each other's function. You would still have the same amount of memory, but each chip would just replicate the other, so forget it.
No. No one yet produces a 2Mb chip - although 4Mb ones are becoming more popular (5I2K of memory on a single chip). To get 8Mb of RAM using a SupraRAM 500RX. You need a total of 16 4Mb chips.
16 I Mb chips give you only 2Mb of RAM.
EYE ON THE TIMES Does the A500 Plus have a real-time clock huilt in?
I use the clock on my Imh A500 (which has the clock on the memory expansion) for keeping track of when Tiles were created on my hard drive. If I upgrade to a Plus w ill I lose this feature?
200 FEBRUARY 1992 ROY BELL, NEW MALDEN Yes. The A500 Plus does have a clock built in. You don’t think serious Plus users could manage lo live without it. Do you?
LACK OF MEMORY When I load the excellent PGA Tour Golf into my machine only using one disk drive and with only 5I2K of memory, I lack the sounds of the game.
Switch on 1Mb of memory and they're all there, hut the disk swapping is a pain.
When I use two floppy disk drives and Imh of memory. I don't have any sound! I ran two hacked- up copies and the original, with no difference whatsoever - if I want sound then I have to swap the disks. Now. It might not be earth shattering but I would like a few answers:
1) Does the external disk drive make the Amiga think it's only
got 5I2K of memory again, or docs the PGA Golf Tour program
use a particular part of memory needed to control the disk
drive?
2) ('an I edit the startup-sequence to free the memory needed
for both the sounds and the disk drive?
3) Would the same thing happen with any old external floppy
drive, or is it just my make and model (I have a Power
Computing PC880B).
4) Does this happen only with PGA Tour Golf, or is it a common
problem?
ALF DENHAM. BRISTOL
I) In a nutshell, all drives (whether floppy or hard) need some
computer memory in order to operate.
External floppy drives use up from between 20 and 30K, although more can be given over to them to make them work faster. Note that the actual portion of memory used varies, because the Amiga can allocate most parts of memory to different tasks.
2) No.
3) Yes. Il would happen with all makes of floppy drive.
4) No. It does happen with other programs, although it's not
necessarily the sound that's affected. It used to be ihe case
that all games worked on a 5I2K machine, because that's all
that was available. Nowadays most Amigas have I Mb of memory.
So programmers have a choice: make the game 1Mb only and do
impressive things, or make it 512K friendly and a bit limited.
More often than not it's a compromise. PGA Tour Golf was not mastered on the Amiga, which complicated matters slightly. It seemed fair that, if memory was limited, the sounds would not play. That small amount of memory (30K) is a large chunk to a programmer. So they used it for the game.
Some games just do this. The easy answer is to get some more memory. These days, it's very, very rare for large memory expansions to cause incompatibility
- and usually they add elements to the game. It's even better if
you buy enough memory (say 2Mb or so) because then you can copy
Workbench-friendly games like PGA to the RAM disk, and play it
through that.
This speeds up loading times enormously.
In reply to Paul Hughes’ letter in AP29 about the conversion of a PC analogue joystick to work on the Amiga, I have actually built such an interface and successfully tested It on a number ot PC joysticks.
The following components are needed:- 15-way female D-type connector Nine-way female D-type connector Covers for the above A short piece of five core cable All you do Is solder the cable from one connector to the other, as per this list. Note that means no connection Is needed.
I think the interface Is the best option, rather than replacing the lead on a PC joystick with an Amiga one, because you have It for all the joysticks you might buy.
INTRICATE INTERNALS
1) How do I find out what revision my A500 is?
2) W hat do I have to do to get I Mb of chip RAM with my A500. I
also have an Ashcom 0.5Mb four chip RAM expansion.
3) Will my power supply he able to handle the RAM expansion, an
Action Replay Cartridge and another floppy drive?
4) I'm thinking of upgrading to Kickstart 2.04. is it worth
getting the Enhanced Chip Set (new Denise and Agnus)?
5) I'm also hoping to gel a SupraRAM 500RX with 2Mb. Would it
need its ow n pow er supply, and if so what type and where
could I get il?
6) What’s the best virus killer available?
MATTHEW DODD. ESSEX
1) Open it up and look.
2) Have a glance at the follow ing pages.
3) Probably. Assuming that you haven't got an external floppy
drive at the minute (they do use a lot of power for their
motors).
4) Not yet. Games will never be released that use ECS (only four
colours in a game? Forget il!) And there is little software
that uses il at the present time. The sort of software that
will use the ECS w ill be on the lines of video and publishing
related programs, these need the higher resolutions of
graphics that ECS offers.
5) Maybe yes. Maybe no (A500 power supplies differ greatly in
their ability to supply power). Any five vault power supply
would do - the tricky bit is connecting it to the SupraRAM.
Because they usually need to have a connector fitted to them.
A simple task for a TV repair shop, if you explain what you
need.
6) The best all around virus killer is Muster Virus Killer V2.2.
It costs £5. And is only available from Amiganuts United.
However, it cannot be run in automatic mode, checking disks
as they arc inserted - a PD program like ZeroVirus .1 or
V-Check on this month's Coverdisk would be more suitable for
that.

I use mv Amiga mainly for music, along with a couple of other people. I specialise in samples, and currently use either MasterSound or Perfect Sound for the job. I need the highest quality possible samples. Which is why I'm writing:- I understand that a sampler is an analogue-to- digital convertor, converting the analogue sound information into digital information that the Amiga can understand. Now. I'm thinking of buy ing a Cl) player with direct digital output... Would it he possible to wire this output directly to the Amiga, bypassing the digital-to-analogue and hack to digital
conversion process? Which pins would receive the digital information?
ALASTAIR JW MCLELLAN, EDINBURGH No. It's not possible on the lines that you describe.
You could (theoretically) wire CD input to the Amiga, but it would be total gibberish from the computer's point of view. You are assuming that all digital data is stored the same way - it isn't. Amiga sound samples are stored in a particular fashion, so you would have to convert the CD data into Amiga sample data somewhere down the line. This would be slower than the CD is playing, so you would lose data.
A more attractive possibility lies in the forthcoming A690 CD ROM drive. You plug this into the side of an A500. To use CDTV titles and to play music Cds.
Now. In theory, you could write a program on the Amiga which spins a CD to a particular track, and reads the data off the CD and into the Amiga. The computer could then convert that information into an Amiga sound sample. However, it has to happen yet.
SQUIRREL NUTS Recently the word 'cache' has been included in plenty of general Amiga adverts. To me. A cache is where a squirrel keeps his nuts. What does the word mean (especially when applied to a hard diskl and how does it effect normal computer operation?
And why didn't my Coverdisk 20 work - it didn't have an IK command on it? But it worked a treat when I'd put one on.
STUART A W AIN WRIGHT Think of it as a car park, where information is parked until it's picked up. Hard disks read and write information very quickly, and for a computer to keep up with a hard disk, it must concentrate on Ihe task. Amigas arc usually doing lots of different things simultaneously.
PROBLEMS OF LATE Apologies to all those of you who couldn’t copy the Sequencer 1 Xmas Lemmings from the Christmas issue. If you use a PD copying program as per the Ancient Bugs letter, that should sort you out. The reason, by the way. Is that Gajits wanted to be able to track the copies of Sequencer 1 - so don't give any copies away to your friends.
Also, the OctoMed disk from AF29 didn't load on the A500 Plus. However it can be run by loading Workbench first, but if you want a disk that starts up, all you have to do Is:
1) Load Workbench.
2) Select Execute Command' from the top-of-screen menus. All you
have to do Is hold down the right mouse button, move the
pointer to the top left of the screen and down over the Disk
menu. Let go when Execute Command' is highlighted.
3) Type this in and hit Return.
Ed OccoMed:s startup-sequence
4) The computer will now ask for the OctoMed disk. Take out the
Workbench disk and put In the Coverdisk (if you have two
drives then you can just stick OctoMed in the other drive).
5) You will eventually (you might need a couple of disk swaps)
get to a screen displaying the start-up- sequence file on the
OctoMed disk. Use the cursor keys (keys on the keyboard with
arrows on them) to move to the words vec' and new'.
6) Either put a semi-colon in front of them, or delete them
entirely.
7) To finish, hit the Esc key, then X and then Return. After a
couple of disk swaps you should already be back at the
Workbench.
8) Remove any disks, reset the computer, and put In the OctoMed
disk. It should now work.
By using a cache, the hard disk works at the top speed of the computer without losing information or waiting around for it to do something. A cache gives it a chance to start doing it's job. And let the computer work at its own pace.
There you have it: a cache docs nol necessarily make a hard drive work faster (it usually docs) bul it does make the whole process more efficient, with less time spent waiting for the computer to keep up. Caches arc separate memory areas built into hard disks, and cannot be utilised by the Amiga as ordinary memory.
CDTV FUTURE Recently I purchased a CDTV for £600. I can't fault the machine in any way. But I am a little hit worried about the support for it, both now and in the future. Speaking to my friends at school, it seems that a lot of software houses are backing out of developing CD ROM titles. Even if that's not true, you have to admit that very little new titles are appearing. Also. I heard a whisper that the price will he slashed considerably and the original discontinued. With a new version being released soon. I don't want to be left with a £600 CD player. Can you tell me the real situation?
DANIEL LEWIS. LONDON It is certainly true that a lot of titles on Ihe CDTV cither took months to appear or haven't appeared yet at all. It's also true few new titles are being announced.
The reasons are twofold. First, it takes far longer to design a CDTV title than it does to write an equivalent for a computer game. You can store an aw ful lot more information on a CD than you can on a simple floppy disk (about SIX) times as much or more). So obviously it takes much longer to arrange all the information, but more importantly debugging (finding the mistakes and correcting them) is very time consuming. It's not enough to simply whiz through a CD and make sure it works once - painstaking playtcsling and thorough evaluation arc needed.
The other point is that CDTV development is fairly restricted. There aren't enough machines out there for serious development to be seen as worthwhile. The CDTV will really lake off when Amiga owners have access to CDTV titles through the A690 CD ROM drive. Because there are literally millions of Amiga owners around the world, the market will explode overnight and then developers will Ik less cautious.
Finally, once A690s get into general circulation, it's probable that CD awareness will grow. It makes you w onder just what a PD demo writer could do w ith a CD development system, given the chance.
ARCHIVING ARTIST I have an A500 with I Mb of memory . I also have a large record collection with over l.(MK) titles. I'd like to catalogue the collection on my computer, hut I haven't a clue where to start. Could you recommend some programs that would let me do this? I need to be able to sort through it by titles and artists, mainly .
CHRIS IVESON. WATFORD What you need is called a database in computer terms: a program for storing collections of information, and searching through them for an occurrence of a particular field (like the name of an artist or album). Two good PD ones come lo mind: BuddBase, which is a little slow but does cope with large databases.
BuddBase costs £3.50 from Deja Vu (0942 495261).
The other is AmiBa.se II. Which is a little simpler and is reviewed in the PD Update section of this magazine.
ANCIENT BUGS I would like to know the correct method of hacking up Eye of the Beholder. I've tried using Workbench (I click on the EOTII disk icon, then select Duplicate). This appears to work fine, but when I try to actually run the game from the set of backups. It refuses to accept the second disk on the loading screen.
Can you help? I would have thought such a simple task would be easy, hut all I have is problem after problem. Oh yes, and can you only have one saved game at a time on EOTB1 A WETHERILL. HULL There arc two possibilities. Hither the game has some hidden 'finger prints' which the Workbench copying procedures ignore. This would mean that the game would start and then stop, as you describe. The other is you're using Workbench 1.3.2. which is dodgy for copying disks using the Duplicate option. If you try using ihe Shell to copy disks you might find it works.
201 FEBRUARY 1992 Failing that, you will need a special copier. There are many Public Domain copiers (PDCopy) which are better than Workbench and should be sufficient for what you want. The best copiers require an external disk drive. You plug a hardware widget between the computer and disk drive, then run a copying program supplied. This produces excellent copies and beats most software protection procedures. I'd recommend the Datels' Synchro Express 111 (or Ashcom's Mac II.

Read all about the one upgrade that makes the Amiga easier to
use, as Pat McDonald explains how to get Workbench 2 on an
old Amiga.
Flniga Workbench graphics nen ? I Workbench ISIS M Ran Disk ?I Horkbench2.8 JfllS l [ O i| PL. 1 1 HBStartup m Morkbench2.0 mm a On the Windows menu is one of the most exciting developments of Workbench 2. Even if a file doesn't have a proper icon, it can be displayed with a 'pseudo icon'. Now you can explore disks using just the mouse, rather than having to use the keyboard. Shown here are all the files of Workbench 2.
FEBRUARY 1992 AREXX FOR ALL Just what do you get with a Commodore upgrade kit? Well Included Is a new 2.04 Kickstart ROM chip, three disks (Workbench. Extras and Fonts) and a full set of manuals. If you haven't heard, these manuals are good, much better than any that have gone before.
There Is one thing missing: AmlgaBasic Is no longer sold with the Amiga as standard. Quite honestly, It's not much of a loss. AmlgaBasic was universally disliked for being slow, buggy and Amiga unfriendly. There are better Basic languages available separately.
What is Included Is Arexx. If you've never heard of it before, chances are it won't set your heart on Are. Arexx is an Interprocess systems manager for the Amiga, able to swap data and control programs all on its own.
Although of little Interest to the average users, Arexx Is really wonderful If you are using a lot of programs that can talk to Arexx (those that have an Arexx Port ). Such a system can be configured so that the programs run autonomously on long repetitive tasks, leaving you more time to yourself rather than slaving over a keyboard.
COMPARING WORKBENCH 2 wilh 1.3 should give you an idea what it's all about. This was a relatively quick turnaround to fix the worst faults of Workbench 1.2. Specifically, the printer drivers were tweaked to give better results with more up-market printers. Workbench 1.3 could start straight from a hard disk, with no floppies needed. It introduced the Fast Filing System, lo make hard drives work more efficiently. And so on.
It was good for its lime, but the main problem w ith
1. 3 was that, like all its predecessors. Workbench could not
show files which lacked an icon. Such files would not show up
on Workbench at all. So you had to use either the CLI or Shell
programs to access the files and directories which form the
backbone of Workbench, these are files like the
startup-sequcncc file. Ihe printer driver files, and the
keymap files: which arc crucial to everyday activities of
Workbench, but you had to be a keyboard w izard to get at
them.
For instance, in order to do something as simple as copying a file from one disk to another, you couldn't just click on the icon and drag it to the icon of the disk you wanted it to be copied onto. Instead, you had to open up the Shell or CLI. And type in which disk the file was on. Whether il was in a directory or noi. And Ihe name of Ihe largel disk and maybe ihe largel directory. The biggest failing though, of Workbench 1.3 was lhal you had lo be good with a keyboard and have a fair working know ledge of Ihe system in order lo set il up properly.
The one outstanding advantage of Workbench 2 is lhal everything on a disk can be made visible and manipulated with the mouse. Whether you're copying by clicking and dragging with a mouse, or running a program by double clicking on il: Workbench 2 gives you a view of what’s really on a disk, rather lhan Ihe illusionary 'it hasn't got an icon so il docsn'1 exist' approach of 1.3. Every single file can have an icon, without an actual icon file being present on the disk.
This is great, because you suddenly don't have lo use the keyboard to explore the Amiga anymore. That option is still there (and you can now run CLI keyboard commands from the Workbench screen, rather than having to find a handy Shell icon). But the amount of technical expertise needed to use an Amiga as a computer rather than as a games machine has been greatly reduced.
Apart from that more open approach. Workbench 2 is more visible in other ways. The style of Workbench has changed greatly from the old familiar blue, orange.
White and black. Now it's various pastel colours, and they now have a specified order.
This means that a sort of 3D look and feel has been added, with options appearing to be closer lo you and general workspaces being further away. All il really is a is a cheap optical illusion, but it does mean that important gadgets (places lo click a mouse button on) arc more obvious.
There's even more on the visibility front though.
Workbench 2 can fully utilise Ihe Enhanced Chip Set (ECS). ECS consists of both an ECS Fatter or Super Agnus chip and an ECS Super Denise. If you have both then you get access to the ECS.
All the ECS docs is lo add three new graphics modes to the Amiga. These are: SupcrHires, which has 1280 pixels (graphics dots) horizontally and 256 or 512 lines vertically, depending on interlace: Productivity, which has 640 pixels horizontally by either 512 or 1024 lines vertically: and A2024. Which is serious resolution at close to 1000 x 1000. But is limited to just four shades of black-and-white.
This may sound great, but on a fairly standard TV set these graphics modes are pretty much useless - the lettering is just much loo small to read. You need a good quality monitor to use ECS, preferably a multisync type (necessary for flickerlcss Productivity and A2024 modes).
ECS is a very important development on the Amiga scene, this is because it gives a much better graphic CHIP MEMORY One term thal may be puzzling some people is ‘chip memory'. The Amiga's memory is split Into two types: last memory, which can only be used by the processor chip and chip memory, which can be used by the processor and the custom sound and graphics chips. These latter types are sometimes called the PAD, standing tor Paula, Agnus and Denise.
Chip RAM Is where all the active graphics screens are stored, and any sound samples or graphics data has to go there too. How much chip RAM you have affects the serious creative capabilities of your machine (although fast RAM is more useful than chip RAM - do not upgrade one without the other). How much you can have depends on what version of the Agnus chip is fitted to your machine... Neither the 8367 or 8370 Agnus chips can use more than 512K of chip RAM - they're obsolete. The 8371 Agnus can give you 1Mb ol chip RAM, but does not have the Enhanced Chip Set. The 8372A has both, and is the
ideal chip for updating either the A500 or A1500 A2000. The good news is that the 8372A is already fitted to the majority of these machines.
To get 1Mb of chip RAM on an A500, a small modification has to be made to the circuit board (described overleaf). If you want to upgrade to the full 2Mb chip RAM capability of an A500 Plus, you need a different Agnus again (the 8375). This cannot be put straight into an A500 or A1500 A2000 because these machines were not designed to use 2Mb of chip RAM.
If you do want the 2MB chip RAM capacity of the Plus, you will need to fit a circuit board on the inside of your machine. Such boards have the Agnus and the 2Mb of memory on them, and they cost in the region of C200.1 will be reviewing such a board from Aquarian PD (0703 685006) next month.

You can overlay a patterned background over the blank parts of the screen, which is also aesthetically pleasing.
Resolution that il liail before - the Amiga can now compete on even terms with more expensive computers.
However not much software that is currently available was designed with ECS in mind (although some of it makes use of it). It's not as important now as it will he when programs are released that can use it properly.
The reason for this is simple. Workbench 2 has the ability to cither use standard Amiga fonts or proportional Compugraphic Agfa fonts. The latter variety are very good news for the desktop publishing community.
A proportional font is one that can be shrunk or expanded to virtually any degree. Try that with a normal font and you end up w ith big letters with jagged edges or tiny unreadable dots. Bul (as far as I know) no software has been released thal uses proportional Workbench 2 fonts.
Remember that Fast Filing System? It's always been possible to use this with floppies - the problem is P;rP:rP;rP tP ;rP "r?

Happily.
Workbench 2 still gives you the choice: but FFS floppies really are faster this time around.
The list goes on. Workbench 2 is compatible with Amigas that have more than 512K of chip memory (Workbench 1.3 needed the Setpatch command to be run first): Workbench 2 has better 32-bit address handling. Which means that it's more accelerator friendly (works better with faster processors - 'decision making' chips) than 1.3: Workbench 2 multilasks better and docs not guru.
By guru I mean crash: stop working due to a mistake in a program. Workbench 2 still notices illegal programming and complains, bul you can now shut down the offending program and carry on. A much belter system than just say ing that an error occurred somew here in the memory .

Quite a sizeable proportion of software just does not work with Workbench 2 or ECS. This Isn't the direct tault of the new system and It’s not a situation that will last very long, as manufacturers struggle to update their hardware and software.
The problem is really down to programmers who are not using the Amiga computer properly. Given the complexity of the machine, It's not really surprising that some people program to a standard, and so long as it works with a certain section of Amigas they tend to figure that's good enough.
Now that Workbench 2 and the ECS are available to all, new software should always be compatible (although new Workbench 2 software will in some cases be incompatible with older versions ot Workbench, due to the new features). Older software that Isn't compatible
