A1200 COMPATIBILITY The Amiga 1200 has been out for a few months now, and we reckon that anybody producing games now would be pretty mad to release a game that wasn't compatible. Because of this, we will only inform you if a game is NOT A1200 compatible. We will, of course, test every game on the A1200, so you can rely on our judgement. If you see the logo, it won't work. Screenplay Spring is in the air, the birds are singing in the trees, the sun is shining - and what are the Amiga Format reviewers doing? Sitting in a dark, cold office, playing games, because they know what's good for them. And they've been playing... Body Blows Those of you who were disappointed with Streetfighter 2 on the Amiga, are in luck! We've been looking forward to Team17‘s Body Blows for ages, so now it's actually arrived we've been beating each other up every day! Find out how well it plays on... Page 58 WAKE UP! TIME TO PLAY... Have you sussed your original Lemmings yet? Well, I hope you have because those lovable, but suicidal mammals are back. If you can save them, then boats will fly. If ever there was an out-of-lhe-blue success story, then the original Lemmings was it. Everyone at Amiga Formal treated its arrival in 1990 as jusl another jiffy bag in the mail. But the envelope contained what was to become one of the classic Amiga games of all time. Some snubbed it at first, saying that they didn't like puzzlers, but in the end the sound of one "Oh no!" Would turn even the most hardened cynic into an addict. MAY 1993 Lemmings has spanned the age groups - no Amiga user has been safe. They even invaded Christmas by appearing on a special (Amiga Format 30) Coverdisk. Dressed up in Santa costumes. But is there enough mileage left in the lovable creatures to carry the legend through to ihe next generation? Well, by the look of Lemmings 2 - The Tribes this thing could last and last.

This month has seen the release of the new mid-range Amiga that many users, ourselves included, have been eagerly waiting for. Its release was confirmed on the day we went to
press, but you'll find a stop press news story about the new machine on Page 16. The press conference for the new machine featured Bars and Pipes Pro2 and Real3D2 quite heavily, and we have reviews of both these fantastic programs inside.
Welcome to AMIGA Format!
We have a big feature on Cyberpunk, the cultural phenomenon that sprung out of home computers, and continues to affect the uses that Amigas are put to. If you ever wanted to know what hacking and jacking are all about, turn to Page 33 to find out.
We are often asked to put on our reviews whether a piece of software is A1200 compatible or not. Well we work on the assumption that all software is. The machine has been available for six months now, it is essentially the standard Amiga, all new software should be compatible.
Atoms Rather than have a little icon on all our reviews, we'll make a point of saying in print if a program isn't AGA savvy.
Inside this issue you'll find a review of Lemmings 2, you know it's going to be good, but exactly how good is it? Well Clare didn't get to bed until sunrise for three days, it's that good. Check it out on Page 54.
Elsewhere in the issue you'll find a review of VistaPro 3, the latest release allows anyone with an AGA machine to see those stunning landscapes in full colour.
If you didn't know already (where have you been?) We are having a huge Amiga show at Wembley next month, there's a three page preview in News. Make sure you get along to the show, we'll all be there!
Multiplayer fun that will have you scratching your head for hours on end. As an added bonus, the full Devpac source code has been included on the disk too.
Inspiration Anim Ever wondered how games get invented? This is the original animation that Dave Jones saw before starting work on Lemmings.

Also on the disk is a multiplayer strategy game, and an educational fractions demo, a utility and the animation that inspired Lemmings... now is that a packed disk, or what?
Charlie Chimp Brian Bell Europress PAL only Right if you have an AGA machine (A1200 or A4000) hold down both mouse buttons after turning on and select the Enhanced mode from the graphics mode. Everybody else with any model 1Mb Amiga just turn on and pop in your Coverdisk. About 30 seconds to a minute later, you will be left looking at a rather plain Workbench screen, with a big Coverdisk icon on the right-hand side.
GETTING STARTED MAY 1993 Move the mouse pointer over to the icon, and click twice rapidly with the left mouse button. The above screen will open. To select any of the programs or data files, just point with the mouse and double dick on the screen with the left button.
Getting out of a program or data file is slightly more difficult. The demos have no exit
- to get out you either have to turn off or reset by holding down
the Ctrl key and the two keys either side of the spacebar.
Atoms is supposed to exit when you press the right mouse
button.
Sadly on Workbench 2 or later machines it crashes instead. This exit method works for the Inspiration anim though.
Getting out of either the Atoms.readme file or the Check.Doc file can either be done by hitting the Esc key or by clicking the left button until the end of the document. All the contents have been tested on all Amigas, but if you have a slightly weird one (2Mb of chip RAM on a 1.3 machine, or all four floppy drives) you may have to disconnect your expansions to get the Coverdisk to work.
Wait, there's more!
Two important files are not immediately obvious. These are the complete assembly source code for Atoms (handy if you followed the Bullfrog Devpac machine code tutorials) and also the Check program. To copy these programs, some knowledge of the Shell is useful.
THIS IS THE winning entry of the GamesMaster AMOS programming competition. Well, almost - it's only a three level demo of the full 30 level shareware game. If you like it and want the full version, instructions on where lo send ihe £5 shareware fee are buill into the game.
What? You don't get the whole game on the Coverdisk? The reason is the size - the full game almost completely fills a disk. The second prize winner. Another platform game called Super Blue Kid by Frazer Ashworth, was of a similar size. The third prize winner, a rather spiffy shoot-cm-up called Stellar Escape (by Antonio Alberto Ruiz and his friends) was four disks!
So you only get a taste of the full game, just like 'proper, commercial' software. If anyone out there in the real world can define any differences lhal aren't cosmetic between shareware and commercial boxed software, then you're smarter than I am.
Anyway. Charlie Chimp is a platform game, and it's fairly simple in most respects. Charlie's task is to repaint all the platforms on the screen, and he must do it three times for each level. To slop him doing this there arc plenty of nasties roving around. Fortunately COVERDISK FRACTION GOBLINS DEMO This is Thrrr 01 fn-.T nm MM Coombe Valley Software PAL NTSC Here's a quite substantial demo of an educational program. It's aimed to help children who are having difficulty with that horrible maths subject fractions. And helping you out is a tribe of goblins
- hence the title.
The basic idea is that after a quick break at the local goblin playroom, you return to discover that your pencil case has been ransacked. You have to move around the maie of rooms, finding a pen here, ruler there and so on, until your pencil case collection is complete.
Playing it is not too difficult - maybe it could have been easier by using the mouse. To move north, south, east or west simply type n, s, e or w followed by the return key. Pick things up by typing Take object', have a description retold with 'Look', and find out what you are carrying with 'Inventory'. Have fun. And remember - the full program tests on all four fraction areas By the way, my (Pat McDonald's) personal apologies to Coombe Valley Software for getting the name wrong. The above is correct the Coverdisk label is wrong.
Every time you pick up an object in the demo, you get a short description of what it looks like.
? Take rubber Green and rather grubby and shaped like a frog.
MONKEY CONTROL PUZZLE Up Climb Ladder Fire Use ‘ Weapon Left Walk left Up + Fire -Place Rope 41
l. a Right Move Right for you. Mosl of them are fairly stupid and
don't home in on you.
You can't jump over them - in fact you can't jump at all - but if you press fire then you can whack them into the edge of the screen. If you see a boxing glove, give it a whack and it'll bash all the nasties level with you on-screen.
Also available to you is a rope, and this comes in handy when a platform doesn't have a ladder going up to it. But you only get one of these, so make sure you don't waste it in the wrong place. Also, sometimes you have to take it down again in order to use it in a different place on the same screen.
To paint the platforms, just run over them and they'll change colour. Make sure that when you finish one painting run. You start on the next coat where the old one ended - it can be very frustrating to run around not putting any paint down.
A1200 owners will be pleased that the game takes account of the extra power in their machines, and is a lot better as a result. On older Amigas. It's still good, but you haven't quite got the slickness.
Brian Bell, the author, is thinking about doing an AI200-only version, as well as a follow up - but this depends on whether or not many people support him with a shareware contribution.
People who use AMOS will be pleased that Brian has left Ashley Cunningham's graphics .abk files on the disk where you can get at them. They are used in the AMOS tutorial this month, on Page 109. He will also supply the complete AMOS source code if you send him £10.
Personally. 1 don't think there's a huge amount of mileage in this sort of AMOS game. Platform games need the maximum speed possible to get the maximum graphics moving on screen at once. AMOS is a good programming language, but it isn't ideal for this. But Charlie Chimp shows what you can do with a bit of thought and a lot of effort.
ATOMS Tom Kuhn ¦ PAL NTSCS ST Version By B Hewlett This multiplayer-only game seems rather tame at first. Before you can start start it dick on the number of players who want to play, and the game's board will appear. If your mouse pointer is corrupted, that's because you're using an AGA machine without setting the enhanced mode - the 'Getting started’ box at the bottom left of the opposite page details this.
Playing the game is simple in theory. All you do is take turns putting differently coloured atoms on to the board. Each player has a separate colour for their atoms. You can put atoms on top of atoms if they are of the same colour, but this is where the gameplay comes in.
In the middle of the board, up to three atoms can be placed without causing problems. Around the edges, two atoms can cohabit the same space without a hitch. At the comers you can only place one atom. If you put another atom beyond these limits, the space explodes, blowing atoms onto the surrounding spaces and changing the colours of enemy atoms.
The winner is the player whose atoms cover the entire board. As explosions occur, so do chain reactions where excess atoms cause further explosions. Towards the end of the game, you can literally change the whole board by putting on one atom!
Atoms is not an original game - the original was done on the Atari ST by B Hewlett. However.
Tom Kuhn has done a good job on the conversion.
Machine code programmers can find the Devpac source code on the Coverdisk. Saved under the name Atoms.S. For those who check out the directory on the Coverdisk. You'll notice that the Atoms program is much smaller than the source code (25K as opposed to 35K). There's a very simple reason for this - the program has been crunched with PowerPacker Professional V4. Uncrunched, the program is about 100K long.
MAY 1993 A large part of this is the Noisetracker music module, which is included into the program right at the end of the Assembly source code listing. So if you've been looking for an example of indud- CHECK V4 Chris Brown ¦ All Amigas This is a dead handy Shell utility, and it's useful for startup script files. It's purpose is to find out exactly what version of Kickstart is in use at a particular moment.
It may seem like a trivial exercise - after all, you can just see if the Version or Why commands are available, for Kickstart 2 or 3 respectively.
Yes, you could do that, but not at the start of a script and there's no way to find out if someone is using future versions of Kickstart version 4?).
Check works by generating an error code, which the Amiga code can recognise with an If Warn statement. To see if a particular version of Kickstart is in use. You have to check for that version number. These version numbers are the compilation number - because the code is compiled into machine code at different stages, this number actually increases.
So long as Commodore keep the compilation numbers at the same place, Check should work for all future versions of Kickstart (like the prototype version 4).
What's the point? Well, certain programs in the C directory, like Install, do not work on different Kickstarts.
Inspiration.anim Mike Dailly Gary Timmons PAL7NTSC .i.V, t f III!
The proto Lemms in loop. Notice the original Mohican orange hair, redone later in green.
Ever wondered how Lemmings got invented?
Well, one lunchbreak in September 1989, Mike Daily did this little animation. He wanted to see just how small you could make a character that was as well animated as possible.
Gary Timmon did a couple of tweaks, and somehow or other Dave Jones (the gaffer of DMA Design) saw the potential of the graphics as a game. About 17 months later. Lemmings the game was launched on an unsuspecting world that's never quite got over them.
Disk not working?
We duplicate about 180,000 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, don't panic!
Users of machines that precede Workbench 2 could try using DiskDoctor, refer to your manual for more details. Unfortunately DiskDoctor is not included with Workbench 2 or 3.
If your Covcrdisk is indeed faulty, you should send it back INCLUDING A STAMPED.
ADDRESSED ENVELOPE for a free replacement within one month of the cover date to: Amiga Format May Disk Disk Copy Labs Ltd Units 2&3 Omega Technical Centre Drayton Fields Daventry Northants NN11 5RT Protect your Coverdislc There are two ways of making a copy of your disk, and this is the easy one. Don't be put off by the fact that you need to use the Shell or CLI: it's actually a lot easier than you might think.
MAY 1993 I Load your Workbench disk. Open the disk, find the icon that soys Shell or CLI ond double-click on it.
2 When the Shell window appears and the drive light is out, type in (0 Is zero, not the letter 0): Diukcopy from DPOi Co DFO: and press the Return key. 0 is zero, not the letter "0"!

3. The Amiga will now ask you to insert the 'source' disk.
It means the disk you wont to copy, so put the Coverdisk in the drive ond press the Return key.
4. Woit for a while and it will reod all the information off the
Coverdisk, telling you how far it has got. Then it will osk
you to insert the 'Destination' disk. Put the disk you want to
copy your Coverdisk on to in the drive and press the Return
key. Note thot the disk does not need to be formatted alreody.
5. Put the sourco disk and destination disk in a couple more
times when the Amiga asks for them. When it soys "Diskcopy
Finished" just type in:
• ndcl1 to get out of the Shell or CLI. You may have to put the
Workbench disk in agoin. Now your copy is ready!
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 all of the programs on the Amiga Format Coverdisk are simple to use and have no 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 Coverdisks are not In the Public Domain and the copyright remains with the copy- right-holder of the program.
Because some of the programs on the Coverdisks are not PD. Selling or distributing them without the copyright-holder s specific permission is against the law.

Art Department Professional Is constantly adding to It's vost repertoire of loader and saver modules. The latest addition is Video Toaster Framestore format. AdPro becomes the first item of third party software to offer the format. AdPro 2.3 also introduces a hotlink to Dehxe Point 4.6, which gives AdPro occess to Dpahtt" s primary, secondary and animation buffers.
This will allow networked machines to manipulate Toaster images, even If they are not equipped with a toaster. All very exciting If you are on American. But till there's a Pal Toaster, of no use to us on this side of the pond.
HELP ON HAND Jjc are a new company, but os we stated several issues ogo, they have a lot of experience with Commodore micros. To help you get the most out of your Amiga, they have prepared a series of disks that form a full tutorial on using the machine.

Subscribers to the course get 12 disks dealing with the Amiga system, software, hardware, design, hints and tips. An added bonus is that subscribers will also have access to o personal 0 and A service.
In a similar vein, Jjc are offering o Pen Pal tutorial, combining a disk and SO-page booklet, this is done with approval of Pen Pol owners Gordon Harwood. H you think you could benefit from Jjc's experience, give them a caD on 0494 883347.

ADPRO GOES At last the A2400 is here DMA Design, the company responsible for Lemmings, are not producing any original Amiga games after June. The decision was made after the release of Lemmings 2. Because the level of piracy on the Amiga is too high. David Jones, who formed DMA with the release of Blood Money, told AF: ‘‘No original Amiga software is planned. Amiga hardware sales are growing rapidly, and software sales falling, so piracy is increasing. I’d love to see CD take off. Because that would help a lot.
"We will be producing another Lemmings for the Amiga, because most people who play it actually buy it. We will monitor our forthcoming releases. Walker and Hired Guns, carefully. If the situation picks up.
We may consider other original projects."
Ian Hetherington of Psygnosis. Publishers of DMA. Commented: "We will continue to support the Amiga as long as it is viable. DMA are entitled to their opinions, but the situation is the same on other formats .
We are investing heavily into CD because it is pirate-proof - virtually."
The news from DMA is proof that if you copy games you are killing the future of the Amiga as a games machine.
On March 24. At their Maidenhead headquarters.
Commodore pul an end to all the speculation about a new Amiga. It will be a -KMX) with a Motorola 68030 processor.
You've probably read in the press for some time now about a fabled new Amiga, and this is it. Obviously the gap between the fabulous value A1200 and the slightly less obvious bargain, the A4IXX). Had to be bridged. Many, ourselves included, theorised at great length as to what form the machine would take, and at first, the new Amiga seems a little disappointing, but when you consider the prices things start to look a lot more positive. The machine will have 4Mb of RAM as standard and will be available in either 80 Mb or 120 Mb hard drive configurations. Prices are £999 and £1.099
respectively.
There are only a couple of shadows over the new announcement. Commodore arc pushing the A4000 030 as a 3D ray-tracing music DTP mulitimedia workstation, but for these applications the drive sizes on offer look a bit small, this is mediated by the fact that you can buy cheap 3.5-inch IDE drives, and the controller can accept two. The second concern is how can Commodore hope to maintain the price of the A4000 040 when all you have to do is by an 030 machine and bung a 040 chip in? Expect to see the A4000 040 down in price soon! Commodore demonstrated Real .11)2 (see review on Page 138). Scala.
Liars and Pipes Pro 2 (Page 142) and TVPainl2 on the A4000 and we're now convinced the Amiga is a platform to lake on all comers.
Millennium support James Pond Is set to return to the small DMA drop Amiga Dutch Hero Euphoria is the name of a new software development team set up In Holland. They have the great honour of being the first Dutch games programming house, and their first game. D-Hero. Is due for release at the Amiga Format Live show on May 7th (see Page 11).
It's basically a horizontally scrolling shoot-em-up in the style of Profect-X. Which plays well and sounds good Giger-esque graphics abound in level 3 of D-Hero, check if out on next months disk.
- and the graphics are absolutely amazing!
If you want to see for yourself, check out tho Coverdisk on the next issue of Amiga Format (which is also on salo at the show), because an exclusive playable demo will be contained therein. For more information on D-Hero contact Profile on 0925 263363.
Wc never wrong You may have read in all the other, not so intelli- computer magazines about an alien ninja called Zool. But not here, we never thought he was an ant, for two reasons, we read the press releases from publisher Gremlin, who were specific in not stating that he was an ant anywhere, and the other reason is that he doesn't look like an ant.
Ants have 6 legs, Zool has two legs and two arms.
Simple innit. Watch out for Zool 2, it won't have any ants in it.
Here is the Alien called Zool, he is nor on onl, despite what Amiga Power and the other magazines may say.
Opalvision gets Roaster at last (maybe) At Ah' we're still waiting for the famous Opalvision roaster chip, but if distributors ZCL are to be believed, and they usually are. It will be sitting in a shop near you in early May.
The chip forms the core of the Video Processor Module which plugs directly into the Opalvision motherboard. Once in place you have a realtime 24-bit framcgrab- bcr. A pro quality Genlock with chroma and luma keying, and the roaster chips ability to do unlimited transitions, colour processing and digital video effects. A regular PAL equivalent to NewTek's With it's new modules on sole soon Opalvision looks set to be excellent but resolutely NTSC the PAL equivalent of the Toaster.
Video Toaster. The Opalvision Video Suite gives complete audio and video mixing, switching and transcoding. It has an external 19-inch rack mount unit w ith nine video and 10 audio inputs.
The price for both is £849 and they will be available through ZCL and Calculus. 0543 251275 show 1200 AJVIIGA SCORES BEST YEAR EVER Between it's lounrh in October 1992 and between Its launch in Christmas the At200 sold over 44,000 units. October and the end of the year. The combined sales figures of all Amigas is 390.000. This continued sales success ensures that our machines will continue to have software support for many years to come.
We can look forward to James Pond 3, where a new star will emerge - Flnnius Frog - which introduces a two-player option. Again, there will be a 1200-only version available separately.
The other tour releases have working titles at the time of writing. They are: Diggers, an arcade strategy game released on the 1200 (June) and the 600 (September): Flag, a full-screen Isometric 3D strategy game for the 600 (September); Dino-Worlds, an actlon puzzle game for the 1200 (October) and the 600 (November); and lastly, Beastball, a futuristic two-player football game , released on the 1200 (November) and the 600 (December). We will give you more details of these games nearer the time of release. Contact Millennium on 0223 844894.
We liked the AlfaSton with OCR when we reviewed it (AMO - 79 per tent), but we hated the price. £335 is a lot to pay, even with OCR.

The Future of Entertainment Shows mw Last year there was the highly successful, but a bit packed.
Future Entertainment Show at Earls Court. (Your very own editor Marcus Dyson designed all the posters and tickets and stuff, in fact). The show was a massive success, much more so than the dark and dingy GamesMaster Live show at Birmingham's NEC.
GM Live turned out to be considerably less packed than the FES. And this year Hewland. The dudes and dudesses who make GamesMaster the TV programme, have decided that they want their show to be huge, bright, brash and wonderful. So they've joined us. We're having one great big almighty-massive, hugely fabulous show at the grand hall in Olympia, and you're all invited.

ON NO! EVEN MORE LEMMINGS Bored with having over-run every conceivable computer format, those cute, green-haired chaps have jumped to CD. Ho not CDTV, they've been available on that for years, we mean audio CD, and cassette and Vinyl too. Yes there's a Lemmings record, and it's not bad.
Rather predictably it takes the acid- dance approach rather than the hardcore or grunge route to chart success. But then what do you expert from a disk produced by KLF backroom boys Nick Coler and Ian Richardson. If you're gonna get down, get down to the record shop and buy this. It's called, rather imaginatively, Lemmings - The record and it's on Synthetic through EMI.

* .* * Softer Kid's basically a platformer, but it has the odded
magic of football to liven it up.
Following Arabian Nights (see Page 64). The next game from Krisalis will be the long- awaited Soccer Kid. Set in the USA at the time of the World Cup in 1994. Soccer Kid is a scrolling platform game where you must recover the Cup which has been stolen by aliens. Fortunately the star of the game is pretty handy with a football, so he can use that to get rid of the obstacles between him and his goal. It's due for release in May. So we should be able to bring you a review in next month's issue. Contact Krisalis on 0709 372290.
War in the Gulf is the name of the next game in the Team Yankee I Pacific Islands series (AFI6 - 81 per cent and AF35 - 93 per cent respectively). The game is scheduled for release in April.
The new game is set in 1995. And places you in command of a crack tank squadron known as Team Kuwait. The Iraqis have stepped too far out of line and you must try to push them back into their own country while destroying their oil fields.

World Class Cricket looks good - with large sprites instead of the tiny characters we re used to. Audiogenic promise that it will play as well as it looks. It s scheduled for review in the next issue to find out for sure. It's due for release at the end of April - contact Audiogenic on 081-424 2244 for more information.
Mindscape's fowl play From Mindscape in September comes the bizarrely titled platform game Alfred Chicken. - it looks like it will rival Putty in the cuteness department. In the game you'll take Alfred through 11 levels of fantasy in search of his beloved fire-engine (?). To foil the poultry character, the designers have invented the Meka-Chickens, presumably some kind of mutant Paxo-filled nightmare.
The next release from Mindscape is the sequel to the bestselling isometric RPG game Legend (see Page 92). Worlds of Legend is similar in style to the original game, but it's based around four main characters set in the Empire of the Moon. The new game promises to be larger than Legend, with dozens of new puzzles and traps to catch you out. Worlds of Legend is to be released In June, but for information before then contact Mindscape on 0444 246333.

H. A.R.R.Y Germany. We went to official functions. And got
sponsorship from them. In all we raised over £3000. So we gave
each of the hospitals £1,000.
"I think that this is the best idea that came up. The other hospitals went for Tvs and videos, but this is a project that can be extended and serves a useful purpose. Hopefully we're going to do a big thing again next year and raise more money."
Mike's aim is to gel an Amiga in every children's ward in the country.
With about 1.000 wards in total, it's a hell of a goal; but with 15 wards under his belt he certainly has the determination. So if you're young and worried about going into hospital - don't be. It's not as frightening as it may seem... Cj are available, Harry gets a Stitch and Harry has a Bloodiest, soon a third will be added, entitled Amy has a Fracture. When a child is admitted to hospital with a similar injury, he or she can play the slideshow and find out exactly what happens to Harry under the circumstances.
The presentation helps kids realise hospitals aren't such worrying places after all.
SO WHO EXACTLY IS HARRY ANYWAY?
Life in a childrens ward can seem pretty daunting if you're a little un? One pair of dedicated Amiga enthusiasts think that they can make it seem that much better with the help of Harry.
Andy Nuttall visited Lewisham Hospital to find out FOR TWO YEARS Mike Blackwell and his 15-vear-old son Chris have been spreading Ihe word of Harry, a project they set up to get Amiga computers into children's hospital wards. Harry stands for Helping And Rolf Harris, supporter of the Responsibly Reassuring Harry project, takes time out Youngsters, and the idea to creole some doodles. Is I0 usc lhe Amjga to reassure kids that life in hospital isn't that had.
Mike raises sponsorship from companies like Canon. OKI. Commodore and Future Publishing (publishers of AF) to offer special discounts on their equipment to the project, so equipment may lie bought through Harry at a very low price. A Harry pack - an Amiga 600 with Deluxe Paint IV. Subscriptions to Amiga Formal and Amiga Power. Lemmings. Dizzy and 10 blank disks - costs around £260.
Mike explains that Harry is not a charity though: "We can't set ourselves up as a charily, so financially we are self-sufficient. The companies which support us arc very willing to give us special prices, so we can pass these discounts on to the hospitals."
* 29 Chris Blackwell is a self-taught computer artist, whose work
was featured way back in Amiga Format 21. When he was but a
youngster of 13. He uses an Amiga running Deluxe Paint and
Scala to create his slideshows, each starring a character
called Harry, who receives an injury and is subsequently
admitted to a children's hospital.
At the moment two shows MAY 1993 Until now. Hospitals are advised by the government to purchase a certain type of computer. Mostly it's an Archimedes, sometimes a PC-compatible - which work out expensive. When Mike approaches a hospital with his scheme, they are surprised by the low cost.
When the Amiga is installed, they arc also surprised by the power of the machine - like many people, they had previously written off the Amiga as merely a games machine - but a child given five minutes on a program like Deluxe Palm can change all that.
A total of 15 children's wards arc equipped with Harry. All have the basic set-up. While some have bought other equipment such as a printer, so they can print out the children's draw ings and display them.
The most recent installation has been at Lewisham hospital in North London, where we caught up with Mike and Chris as they demonstrated the system.
Also in attendance was Rolf Harris, who has been a Harry supporter since the beginning - several months ago Chris was a guest on Cartoon Time where he demonstrated his animations. Rolf explains how he sees Harry fitting into hospitals: "It's nice to be involved in this, even as an observer. I've watched Chris since he was about 13. And the developments in his work have been amazing. It's like magic when you see kids come in and they go to their ward. You know- what hospitals are like - nobody wants to be there.
This gives them a lot of pleasure."
Lewisham hospital received funds from local policemen who staged a special event to raise money. PC Roy Wood, who led the event, explains what they did: "A few officers cycled in uniform 450 miles across Intrepid staff writer Andy Nuttall ventures into the deepest corners of Hertfordshire to bring you an inside view of Frontier, The Sequel To Elite... The Final Frontier David has researched in detail, the size and behaviour of other solar systems and galaxies.
As well as being a good blast, an intellectual trading game, or whatever else you want it to be. Frontier can also be a good teaching aid for astronomy - so kids really can learn and play at the same time. Phew!
So. Given all this detail, the number of planets. The amount of colours, the sound effects, it must take up a huge amount of memory - right? Well. No. Not at all. Frontier will almost certainly be supplied on a single disk, and will run on every Amiga with at least 1Mb of memory - wow!
David explains: "Most games nowadays are less than 50K in size, and the rest is taken up with sprites and background graphics.
People forget that there's an enormous amount of space on one floppy disk, and a lot of them think that the number of disks reflect the size of the game - which just isn't true. The original Elite was only 22K in total, and that had
2. CXX) different planets."
There has been plenty of hype over the last year about Frontier, but you can now take it from Amiga Format that it's not only as impressive to look at as it has always promised to be. But it plays like an absolute dream. This is as close to virtual reality as you're going to get w ithout putting on a weird helmet. It's big.
And it really will be on your screen soon! '2?
Frontier - The Sequel To Elite will be released by Konami in early June. Contact Konami on 081 429 2446.
ONE OF THE most eagerly awaited games this summer has to be Frontier. And now Amiga Format can bring you the most up-to- date information about what could be the biggest game ever - literally!
MAY 1993 The sequel to w hat was one of the biggest computer games ever Elite) is just a matter of weeks away from completion. Although programmer David Brabcn has been working on the project for four years, he has only recently injected some playability into it. And luckily I've managed to spend a day actually playing the game. Like Elite it's not an easy game to play at first, so most of your initial time is spent getting to grips with your spaceship - and it's only after playing the game for a few hours that you really get a feel for the size and scope of it. It really is vast.
For those of you who don't know, the original Elite put you in the shoes of Peter Jameson, a space pilot in charge of a Cobra Mk 111. This was a spacecraft with a reasonable cargo space, and huge potential in terms of blasting- everything-in-sight. With this ship, and a small amount of credits, your task was to roam the eight galaxies in the game, shooting enemies and trading to make money.
Frqntier will cast you as Commander Jameson's grandson, whose career as a space trader is given a boost after being left a spaceship in his father's will. Like its predecessor.
Frontier will give you a small amount of information about the gamcplay. And leave you to work the rest out for yourself. The scope is so great that it enables you to take one of many roles: you can play a trader, a bounty hunter, a pirate, a smuggler - basically, you name it. You can play it.
While Elite had a little over 2.(XK) planets for you to explore - an enormous amount for a BBC microcomputer with 32K of memory - Frontier has 100.000.000.000 (that's one-hundred billion) planets. These are contained within one galaxy, which contains thousands of separate solar systems, each containing between 0-und-60 planets. David fully intends to produce other galaxies for future add-ons to the original game.
When you begin there are around I00.(XX) planets which all have their own names and details, you must venture out and discover the rest for yourself. As well as individual details, many of the planets also have individual surface detail, so land, oceans, atmosphere and so on can be clearly visible from space.
The vector polygons which make up the details are light-sourced, so depending on your position and the position of the sun. the planets are lit realistically. Also, David has managed to include curved polygons into the game with no loss of speed, so spaceships now have shapely wings instead of the dart shapes they had in Elite, and planets are elliptical instead of perfect spheres.
The most impressive aspect of the game, though, is that wherever possible, every detail of the known universe is accurately mapped.
This means that our solar system looks and behaves exactly as it does in real-life, and ~~ If III ""•a, 5- * £

Adventures in Cyberspace MAY 1993 Computers have changed the world more than anyone would dare imagine - anyone except authors of fiction known as Cyberpunk, who saw technological advancement and social decay coming, years ago!
Marcus Dyson looks at Cyberpunks chilling vision of the future in film, music, lifestyle and more... “THE FUTURE'S SO bright I gotta wear shades." Thus spake the Timbuk 3. Although we can be sure that their intonation was tinged with irony, and their tongues were firmly implanted within their cheeks at the time. I mean, when did anything ever get better?
When did unemployment ever go down (without some new government book cooking schemcl? When did pollution ever decrease?
When did crime figures ever fall, year on year? When did our currency ever increase in value on the foreign exchange markets? When did the cost of living ever go down?
Oh yes. The future, we've all got to live in it... no choice. You're there now. In fact. But the way things are going, it may not be the shiny utopia Logan's Run led us to believe.
Let your imagination free and accompany us on a trip into one of many possible futures.
I woke early to the dull crump of explosions - riots in the prole sectors! I expect they'd hacked their way out of VR again. No problem. Security would quell them in no time. Sure, they'd mostly be killed, but it all helps the overpopulation problem.
If only the non-skills would realise they are better off in cyberspace than here in actual reality, even if they are in a limited-pleasure environment. My head was thudding from the hours of neural jacking and the stimulants I'd done the previous day. The sleepless night hadn't helped - should've remembered to do some downers. I pushed my hand into the SimStim recess beneath the sleep notch and fell the sting of the needle-less injection. Pain relief came quickly.
Today was not a day to be relished. Today I was going to have to go Outside. A capsule may be perfect, but you can't stay in there all your life - not unless you are very lucky, or very rich. I gazed 'out' of my window screen.
Over the Grand Canyon the sun was rising. It was beautifully modelled. Sad to think that the Colorado nowadays ran putrid slime through this joyous vista. Behind me a blizzard was raging on top of Pte Chammoisiere. Through the snow. Ml Blanc was just visible in the distance. The sun and the snow - I'd always liked the contradiction, so much so I paid the extra for twin PanaModels. No good putting it off any longer. My appointment at Justice Central was noon. I had 78 minutes to make surface and cover the mile and a half to ComScc py ramid. It was time to get a move on.
Continued overleaf I found my mask under die console. Il was stiff from disuse. I hadn't had cause to go Outside for around six years - I hadn't left my capsule for seven months, and I didn't particularly wish to now.
They did say you could still surv ive on top without a mask, but I didn't want to put the theory to the lest, and surface was no place to get short of breath. It was going to be bad enough avoiding the traffic long enough to make it to a cab. Never mind struggling for air in the middle of a 24 lane highway. It could be dangerous - it »as dangerous up there.
No one knew how many people got involved in RTAs. But il was lots. Traffic- moving at maximum velocity at optimum density was difficult to avoid, and if the driver was asleep il was unlikely he would over-ride the TrafficNct. I jacked onto New s and dow nloaded the radiation figures. If they were high I'd have to hire a suit before I made lop. They weren't. Thanks for small mercies. I hit the hatch release and stepped out into the corridor.
Virtual reality Virtual reality has caused excitement on many levels. At Its most simple it is the interactive video games appearing across the world. W Industries machines are a simple, effective application of VR, and fun to play. Best of all. Their machines are just expanded Amiga 3000s. At the other end of the spectrum. VR is a way of offering corporate solutions or military training.
The concept behind VR is that you model a 3D environment, then place the operator inside it. If we accept Cyberspace as the memory of the computer, VR is a kind of Graphical User Interface for it. The system, at present anyway, requires you to wear special apparatus so that the position of your body can be detected and input into the computer. Future systems will probably involve suits that not only act as input devices, but give feedback too. Imagine a shoot-'em-up where if you get hit from behind, your clothing applies pressure to the area of your back where you are hit.
Of course when physical stimuli are concerned, it doesn't take long before people start considering sex. And a whole area of VR research is devoted to the subject of remote sex. This subject is called Teledildonics.
Imagine a future where you can have relations with your partner even though they are on the other side of the world, or have clean, safe casual sex with someone you never even have to meet. The networking charges will be paid for in the money you save from not buying your partner drinks.
Travel is another area that would be revolutionised by VR. Why travel when you can just be there’ in the comfort of your own home? Of course purists will cry "It's not the same though, is it?". But Cyberpunk fiction predicts a future where VR is not accessed wearing a cumbersome suit, but by direct connection of the human neural networks to the computer via electrodes worn on the body. If that ever happens. VR might not be the same as the real thing, but no-one will be able to tell them apart.
If you think putting a condom on is o chore, wait till you experience sex in the future, this Cyber-sex suit is like wearing one big condom... probably.
It’s not a pretty picture, is it? If the future really is like that, wouldn't you want a device that let you travel, work, socialise, play and even have sex (the recreational rather than pro- creational variety) all from the safely of your own 'Capsule'? Of course you would!
But what if we've got it all wrong? What if the future is a paradise? What if world peace prevails? What if all illness and famine are vanquished? What if the quality of broadcast TV reaches an acceptable standard?
Wouldn't you still want all the benefits of a technologically advanced future?
Wouldn't you still want to be able to travel, work, socialise, play and have sex from your own home? We would!
The form of fiction that postulates the possibility of a technologically advanced, hut socially decrepit future is called Cyberpunk. It accepts as inevitable .he effects that computer and other technologies will have on our life, but it offers no optimism as to the effect they will have on society.
Cyberpunk is the fiction of the future, and the culture of the computer. Computer ow ners arc at the forefront of the movement which w ill become the Cyberpunk future. There is no place in Cyberspace for those who arc afraid of technology. There is no room for those w ho cannot program a video recorder. Your Amiga is your key to being part of this future.
MAY 1993 Cyberpunk as a cultural movement began with the writings of William Gibson. Neuro- mancer. Hunting Chrome - these novels were merely science fiction, written by a man who had the imagination to sec the Cyberpunk future but not the computer knowledge to create it. Gibson saw a society in the thrall of computers - in part run by computers, a society where the interchange of data is the yardstick by which civilisation is measured.
Although the Cyberpunk future is a society with all the advantages of technology, it is also a society of avarice, a society of violence, a society of greed. And the outlaws of this society are the Cyberspace Cowboys, hackers who Continued overleaf Wargames showed just how serious the consequences of a bad hack could be.
They used? An Amiga of course.
Last year Lownmmeer Mon made big claims about being the first-ever virtual reality movie, and while it was an excellent movie and addressed the central issues of Cyberpunk and virtual reality (including Teledildonics). It was preceded by some years by the Disney movie Trim Although CYBERPUNK SUBJECTS I.END themselves superbly to the visual media the themes arc often the classic science fiction themes, the technology is invariably newer and shinier (though often with more lhan a hint of tarnish round the edges). There is an argument that any science fiction movie could Ik- classed as
Cyberpunk, but those with central themes involving computer networks, a technology-dominated society and social decay arc more true to the genre.
The Amiga is taking a from scat in films these days; the effects and processing power of the machine make it a firm favourite in post-production houses.
Similar Silicon Graphics Systems or 'Harrys' cost many limes as much as an Amiga, and often are no more powerful. The Gibson's makers of the new Warners sci-fi series Ktiby- chilling future vision didn't bother building lots of models of realiserTas Ridky'** spaceships and then filming them using a pan- Scott's Blade Runner ning camera motion, as they would have had to do only a few years ago. Instead they modelled all the spacecraft inside a computer and created them in Cyberspace. Guess which computer NiUROMANCEH, COUNT ZERO, MONA USA OVERDRIVE, BURNING CHROME, THE DIFFERENCE ENGINE
Al'THOR : WILLIAM GIBSON Gibson is the Cyberpunk author.
It was he who coined the term, and his stories created many ot the other terms and phrases that regularly appear In Cyberspeak. His Cyberspace series (Neuromancer, Count Zero. Mona Lisa Overdrive) created the world ol Cyberpunk, where people no longer look forward to a bright future, but are more interested in getting what they can out of the present. He's recently moved on from Cyberspace with his most recent novel The Difference Engine, which explores a world where the computer age began a hundred years earlier, through the work of Charles Babbage.
APPROACHING ZERO BRYAN CLOUGH & PAUL MI NGO There is little fiction in this book, but it's still fun. It has been fairly well researched, from many different archives, and deals with the exploitation of technology for the individual's ends.
Full of anecdotes about real hacking cases, but technically not demanding and so easy reading.
MAY 1993 MIRROR SHADES - THE CYBERPUNK ANTHOLOGY EDITED BY BRUCE STERLING A collection of stories by Lewis Shiner, Greg Bear, Bruce Sterling and others. Just to prove there is more to Cyberpunk than Gibson (though he does make an appearance). A selection of stories which explore various other aspects of the ethos.
THE HACKER CRACKDOWN AUTHOR i BRUCE STERLING An in-depth exploration of the Hacker phenomenon. And the backlash by the powers that be against it. Sterling looks into the motivations and actions of hacking groups such as the Phantom Access Associates, and the crackdown by the US Justice department and Secret Service.
WIRED Bthis is not the UK-based music magazine, but the American magazine that's in love with technology. It's hard to get hold of over here, but the issue we've seen has some fascinating articles on portable phone hackers and the US Army's virtual reality war-simulator system. Try asking for it at one of the larger newsagents, and quote the ISSN number 1059-1028.
THE HACKER FILES (COMIC) WRITER : LEW IS SHINER Although comms and hacking may not appear to be the most visual of subjects, Shiner has managed to create an intriguing story about the hacker subculture which is absorbing and only vaguely fictional. Recommended.
RICHARD BAGULEY O Reading matters ihe terms Cyberpunk and virtual reality were nol common parlance at Ihe time, the movie is undoubtedly set in Cyberspace. An evil artificial intelligence draws the protagonist into the machine, where he has to do battle in a virtual environment. Tron was not a smash hit. But it wax ahead of its time and could have come from the pen of William Gibson himself.
Cyberpunk slang at a glance Any new area has new words, and Cyberpunk is no exception. Just check out these 'technical' terms so that you can make yourself understood in the near future.
C«i»k - A way of describing your computer. In this context the term does not refer to Sega or Nintendo machines, neither of which can be any use at all for 'jacking' Into Cyberspace.
Crashing - Using coding skills to break the protection of a database, or software to enable you to get access to the data or copy the program.
Cybarpunk - Technological reactionaries who believe In the 'Hacker Ethic' that Information wants to be free'.
Cyberpunks see technology as a way to gain access to the information that is the basis of power. Networks open up the power ot the centralist elites to anyone with an Amiga and a modem - and a good deal of ingenuity and patience.
Cyberpunk is also the term for the fiction of William Gibson and those who followed after him. It is our fiction, built on the technology of your Amiga and the sociology of our present times. It is the first form of culture to embrace and worship the technology that is an Intrinsic part of our everyday lives.
Cyberspace - The fictional name for the virtual reality world which exists in the networks of all the linked computer systems worldwide. Cyberspace's real world analogue Is Worldnet - they are one in the same thing.
Hacking - Gaining unauthorised access to a remote computer system.
Jacking - Logging on to Cyberspace; connecting your Amiga to another computer system by means of a modem and comms software.
Micrasafts - Software implants on microchip.
Madam - Short for Modulator Demodulator’, a device that enables computers to talk' to one another via the telephone network.
Fhraaklng - Gaining telephone services for free.
Virtual Reality - A three-dimensional environment created within the computer which it is possible to 'jack' Into and interact with in the same way that one interacts with the real world (or at least very similar ways). Virtual Reality is the Graphical User Interface of Cyberspace.
(pre '90) hacking wasn't illegal. He was charged with criminal damage, relating to the time that his ICL targets took to be brought online after he (rarely) crashed them.
But ICLs are expensive - the figures involved were over £25,000. After a two-year court case, Nick was found guilty on four lesser counts relating to disk damage. He was sentenced to a year in prison, but only served two months in Brixton and Wandsworth. His case almost certainly brought about the criminalisation of hacking - in the "Computer Misuse Act" of 1990.
More recently, Paul Bedworth was charged with Cyberpunk - ethos into fashion £661 AVI M In the early Sixties, several technically capable, socially tuned-in American youths discovered that the Bell telephone company controlled the routing and billing of telephone calls using a series of audible tones of specific frequencies. It took no lime for these youngsters to find a way of building blue boxes' that replicated those tones, and soon it was common for the American student in possession of one of these 'blue boxes' to be able to make telephone calls anywhere in the country without paying
for the privilege. The people who understood and exploited this technique were called 'phone phreakers'. They were the first hackers, the first individuals to ever gain unauthorised access to a remote computer system. They didn't know it. But they had just invented Cyberpunk. They had just changed the course of the future of the human race.
The idea of linked computer networks is central to Cyberpunk fiction, and since the early Sixties the world has become a bigger and more convoluted computer network.
Thousands of independent and local networks are connected to hundreds of national networks. Which are in turn linked to dozens of global networks. Together they all make the 'Worldnct'. The real-life Cyberspace. With the right security clearance an Amiga owner can wander to any country and talk to any networked computer user. The Amiga is no slouch when it comes to comms - in fact the first-ever conviction for hacking was made against an Amiga owner (see the boxout on this page titled 'Datacrime').
Hackers, or at least some of them, believe in a 'hacker ethic', based on the principle that Information wants to be free'. They believe that access to any information stored on a computer network should be granted to all who have the technology to obtain it. Then ethic extended to say that it was all right to look, but not to touch. Hackers were pioneers at the technological cutting edge. Interest, not avarice, was their motivation. Discovery, not destruction, was their goal.
At first the law was in no position to prevent unauthorised computer access. And it's hard to find evidence of having been hacked, especially by a competent hacker, especially when you're not looking for it. SysOps (the custodians of a network) were not expecting visitors, and at first visitors were uncommon.
Early hackers needed access to a networked computer system, and in those days that was a mainframe or 'mini' computer. (Don't get confused by the name - minis wouldn't fit on a desktop, they fill an entire room.) The real revolution in hacking came with the invention of the micro computer, and of course the modem.
Nowadays Cyberpunk has become a fullblown cultural phenomenon - in books, films, magazines, computer programs, even nightclubs. Bom of computer technology, it feeds on that technology in a never-ending spiral, onwards and upwards into a future so bright use their computers to jack in to the vast global network of computer systems. Does this sound a lot like the late 20th century to you? It is! Read on... The Mad Hacker'. Nick Whitely, had a problem. He just couldn't leave ICL mainframe computers alone. It wasn't enough to work in the day, making sure there was enough magnetic tape and
paper for the printers. He wanted to get in the driving seat and explore.
Trouble Is, ICLs (the small UK equivalent of IBMs) cost lots - £1 million for the top-of-the-range 3980, used by many universities and believed to be used in government Intelligence systems. So Whitely used his Amiga A1000, a relatively slow modem, and The Hacker's Handbook to start going through JANET, the gateway system used by research establishments.
He did it too. And a lot of experience from his donkey work during the day helped him on his nocturnal ICL expeditions. There are three reasons for hackers working at night: the phone calls are cheaper; the phone lines are less busy and quieter; and the target computers are unmanned.
Until 1985, Scotland Yard's Computer Crime Unit consisted of just one officer. Even at the time of the Mad Hacker's runs, just four officers were trying to combat the datacrime of a whole industrialised nation.
However, the fact that ICLs - the machines possibly used In top-secret government systems - were being systematically broken open sent alarm bells ringing in high places. The Mad Hacker never targeted these sensitive systems, though it is possible that he intended to.
After Whitely had been hacking six months, an arrest team of 40 police officers and specialists knocked on his front door with a warrant. At that time NEW REALMS )!
Technological entertainment have been spawned by Cyberpunk. Including Virtual Reality.
Quazar and databases linked into a network not too far removed from Gibson's Cyberspace, but in fact the Cyberpunk fashion subculture goes further than merely giving us more high-tech toys to play with.
There are conflicting ideas about Cyberpunk fashion. On the one hand those involved in haute-eouture have taken the technological ideology literally, producing dresses and other clothing incorporating silicon chips. PCBs and w ires. These seem to be a glamourised view of the ethos, with models wandering around looking like extras from a dodgy sci-fi film.
The other side of Cyberpunk was first felt in Ridley Scott's films Alien and Blade Runner. Although these appeared before Gibson coined the term, they show a future where technology has advanced in all manner of ways but the degeneration of lifestyles in the late 20th century has continued: buildings are run down: dirt, smog and grime fill the streets and many people find themselves in a struggle between humanity and machinery.
Datacrime This side of Cyberpunk fashion is accordingly aggressive-looking. Clued-up and ready to abuse the technology any way it sees fit.
Cyberpunks often have harsh hairstyles (either severe crew-cuts or long thrash-freak locks), leather jackets, militaristic footwear and adornments such as industrial band logos, metallic badges, bondage straps, earrings and futuristic sunglasses. All these elements go together (with a touch of that 'distressed' look
- ripped jeans, beaten-up boots and jackets, stubble I to make a
harsh-looking yet somehow futuristic persona, balancing
industry, technology. Military and human struggles.
For real Cyberpunks, everything they do has roots in the Cyberpunk ethos - the music they listen to. Their work, their hobbies, all reflect both the technology of the future and the decline of the Western world. This is obvious in the music - also known as hard-beat. Heavy techno (before the dance market usurped the term) or industrial. It has a very technological sound - sequencers, synthesizers, samplers, computers and so on - but the same could be said for modem dance music. The thing about Cyberpunk music is its aggressive, industrial sound: a hammering beat, powerful rapid-fire
bassline. And often a harsh, angry-sounding vocal and cut-up film and radio voices.
Belgium's Front 242 were one of the first bands that fit into the style: their singles Headhunter. Never Slap and Maslerltit all have a very precise futuristic edge, but with a dark and violent colouring. Two Canadian bands Cyber games With Cyberpunk's direct relationship to computers, it's not surprising that there are several Amiga games with Cyber references.

Arc perhaps the extreme version of Cyberpunk music: Skinny Puppy create heavy, pounding music, with vocalist Nivck Ogre's guttural ranlings evoking a feeling of decline and desperation. And Frontline Assembly's trademarks are brulal rhythms and pounding hasslincs. Liberally mixed wilh vocal film samples and almost religious-sounding orchestral chords.
Both Frontline Assembly and Front 242 rely on the Amiga for much of their imagery: futuristic logos, distorted images and digitised pictures arc major elements in the sleeve designs of both bands. Frontline's sleeves are designed on an Amiga, and 242's Patrick Co- denys and Daniel Bresanutti actually formed a design company, with T-shirts, posters, logos and sleeves designed using an Amiga 3(100.
And Deluxe Paint III being used for creating video animations for a compilation video.
To create Cyberpunk music and imagery on your Amiga, all you need is a sampler like Teclinosuutul Turbo, a tracker like OclaMED, a simple digitiser and Dpainl. With time and patience, you could be the next Frontline Assembly!
MAFF EVANS If obtaining telecommunication services dishonestly, conspiracy to cause unauthorised modification in computer material and conspiracy to secure unauthorised access to computer material, after Leeds University began monitoring their lines as a result of excessive hacker activity. Bed- worth was acquitted after his brief offered a plea of addiction to hacking. The verdict is a cause of some concern to network administrators, as it seems to give a green light to unauthorised computer access.
Whether we as a magazine choose to endorse the hacker ethic or not - and we cannot be seen to Incite hacking - everyone must be aware of the dangers.
Stealthy as any hacker may be, completely undetectable entry into a remote computer is impossible. As intruders make their first tentative steps around the system, they may cause inadvertent fatal damage.
Remember how many important systems depend on computer control. Imagine accidentally deleting patient drug records in a hospital computer, for example.
The moral is: if you must hack, tread lightly. If hackers really do want to present themselves as 'techno-anarchists', they must remember that anarchy calls for decentralisation of authority without getting in anyone else’s face, much less causing death or injury.
PAT MCDONALD If CYBERSPACE ENTERTAINMENT INTERNATIONAL Also due to be released soon, Cyberspace is a futuristic RPG based around a huge virtual city created within the Amiga, with no less than

yourself into this grid with Cyberspace. Il0n inhabitants.
You view the world from a first-person perspective view, through a Head-Up-Display on your Amiga monitor screen. The Cyber connections are further complicated by the addition of Cyberspace, a large computer based within the virtual city, which you can log into and enter Cyberspace itself. Phew!
Sound complicated? Well, add into that the promise that the game will let you take virtually any role in the game that you could take in real life, such as private eye, courier or street fighter, and you have one heck of a big game.
It's due for release in September, but before then you can contact El on 0268 541126.
CYBER RACE CYBERDREAMS After commissioning Allen's H R Giger himself to create the artwork for their first game. Dark Seed (AF44 - 72 per cent), Cyberdreams' next game will be So you think you on win the Cyber Ctt,er Race The Rote? This chop tertoinly did... big name associated with this game is Syd Mead, the industrial designer' noted for his work on major films such as Blade Runner, 2010, Aliens and Tron.
The game will be based on a futuristic racing circuit, where the finest drivers from across the galaxy compete in a race to the death. Professional actors are to be incorporated into the game using full-motion digitisation, and digitised speech and sound effects will be used throughout the game.
Cyber Race is due to be released in September this year. Contact Cyberdreams on 071-328 3267.

You must try to get back into the Cyberspace network, and regain credibility as a cowboy again.
Neuromancer is based on the William Gibson book of the same name, and it achieved 81 per cent way back in Amiga Format 14.
ANDY NUTTALL If Flashback (AF45 - 93 per cent) is the latest game to be released by Delphlne Software, previously responsible for the smash hit Another World (AF31 - 82 per cent).
That game had really fluid animation, but no depth to the gameplay. Flashback is a huge arcade adventure, for which real-life actors were filmed performing various movements, then incorporated into the gameplay.
The game is set in the future on another planet, where the main character has had his mind erased and must locate his friends and escape. The plot borrows some ideas from many films, including Total Recall, The Terminator - in fact, lots of Arnold S movies. It's got an incredible futuristic feel', brilliant animation, and a whole host of robots, droids and mutant creatures to blow away with your weapon.

Primer 2.0m ho 17.99 40 MAY 1993 Morphing is THE technique of
the moment, but how does it work and once the novelty has
worn off, how much use is it? Brian Larltman and his
ever-changing images, studies a new science... Morphology
animation going, the computer fills in all of the in-between
shapes by stretching the initial shape as if it were a rubber
sheet, moving the points and lines of the outline bit-by-bit
in each frame.
Taken into true 3D. Programs like Sculpl3D could do similar tricks, but with realistic shading and materials. The trouble was that, at the time, objects like a human face were too complex to model convincingly in this way. Using the standard 68000-based Amiga. Even with the faster machines and powerful modelling and texture mapping software available now. Truly realistic morphing of organic objects like the human head is very difficult. The answer is to use bitmap images scanned from real life (or photographs).
Continued on Page 42 Of all graphical tricks, morphing is perhaps the one that just had to wait until computers with sufficient power came along. Right from the early days, the Amiga has had software that could transform one simple object into another, supplying all of the in-between stages or 'tweens’. Aegis Animator, the first Amiga animation program, allowed 'vectored' 2D objects to transform between a start and end form, though the in-betweens could be pretty bizarre to the inexperienced! FanlaVision. Produced a couple of years later, developed the same idea and made it work superbly.
Both programs use flat 2D objects similar to those you might draw using ProDraw - start and end shapes defined by co-ordinates and vectors rather than bitmaps. When you set the
l. 'NTIL A FEW months ago. Only music- video and Schwarzenegger
fans had even heard of morphing let alone seen it in action.
Then Mel Smith warped into Kate Adie and the whole country was treated to the latest gimmick in the computer graphics bum-bag of tricks. So far. Most of the broadcast uses of morphing have been carried out on expensive high-end systems but. As readers of Amiga Formal will know, morphing software has been available on the Amiga for almost a year. BlackBelt's ImageMuster came first with a simple morphing module, followed by ASDG's MorphPlus and now GVP's CineMorph. To understand the basics of how morphing works, perhaps we should look at some earlier Amiga programs that give hints of what is to
come.

Lake golf. Tested against Links 386 Pro, PGA Tour for Windows and lack Nicklaus Signature Edition, David Lead better's Golf took a clear lead. None came close to its lifelike 3D graphics, shot recording facility, handicap system, video playback mode and multicamera tracking options, according to PC Format in November '92.
Likewise in Grand Prix racing. When Oliver Gavin competed at Spa in Belgium recently, he was the only driver who had never driven the track.

Tetbury, Glos. GL8 8LD. UK. Tel 0666 504 399 MorphPlus ASDG ¦ £199.99 As you ore always morphing between two images, all morph modules described here need to use a two screen interior*.
MorphPlus however is unique in using an 'onion skin' system - superimposing the two images using o voriable level of cross fode. A slider to control the percentage plus brightness and contrast sliders for source and destination ensure exact fine tuning. This approach means thot the whole screen can be used for fine detail - useful when you are using lots of points. In MorphPlus, single imoges con be warped, ond pairs of still images, or sequences of moving source and destination imoges con be morphed.
Available from DMI 0753 666000 CineMorph comes os a stand-alone pock- oge or os a 'hook' or module to be used within ImageFX. It is designed, like MorphPlus, for use by film and television professionals. Single image warps, dual image morphs, and full motion sequence morphs are all provided. It uses o two window interface, like ImageMaster, but the windows can be resized and overlapped. Used with ImageFX it has a zoom mode and a number of other extra facilities like variable file types and image processing that are not availoble on the stand olone version.
MAY 1993 Available from Silito OBI - 309 1111 ImageMaster Black Belt ¦ £1 75 The first Amiga program to do proper morphing was ImageMaster from Black Belt. Choosing Special from the Composing Panel leads you to the Morphing module. This Is laid out as two windows side-by-side, one for the source picture (the Primary buffer) and the other for the destination (the Secondary buffer). A band of text buttons provide the few tools that are available - add, move and delete points etc. Imagine an image of a tiger's head printed on to a rubber sheet. Key points on the face - around the eyes, mouth and
jaw for instance - arc caught by a stitch of thread. By carefully pulling these threads the face could be warped out of shape. The elasticity of the sheet would mean that the area around the changed bits would stretch smoothly, the distortion gradually tailing off further from the 'stitch' point.
In both MorphPlus and ImageFX. A single image can be warped in this way by setting a scries of points on an image and moving them.
Working with two images however, so that points on one can be matched with suitable positions on the other, the first shape can be made to warp smoothly into the form of the second. It only requires cross-fading to lake place at the same time and true cinematic polymorphing occurs... we have morphing.
Morphing has been used predominantly with the human face and body, because these subjects give the most stunning and impressive effects. ASDG have managed to get their MorphPlus software into cinematic post production houses, and several of the effects used in this new Warner TV scries Babylon 5 are done using the software. It is another siring to the Amiga's bow that broadcast television companies (as opposed to cable who by and large have lower production values) are accepting it as a professional tool, and a way of saving on the high cost of graphic-worksta- tion operator's time.
As with all fashions, the need for this sort of visual trickery will fade away or transform into some other amazing effect. But as with a workman's tool, when he first gets it he may use it all the time, but once he tires of it. It is always there in his toolbox should the need for it arise. Personally I will be glad when TV adverts stop featuring bags of washing pow der changing into girlies with perfectly conditioned hair. In the meantime, the tools evolved for morphing faces can be used to transform many other things - imagine a building or natural landscape swelling and metamorphosing
into a new or alien environment. The tools are already here on the Amiga. So all it needs is your imagination. '5 Several methods can be used to transform one bitmapped image to another. The obvious technique is cross-fading. Stated simply, you just fade each pixel of one image to the colour of the corresponding pixels in the other image.
Film and TV use this method so often that you don't even notice, so something more is needed to produce a dramatic transformation.
Deluxe Paint IV can Tween from one brush to another, fading colours and changing the shape of the outlines at the same time. If the two brushes are reasonably simple the change is quite effective, but complex realistic bitmaps distort dramatically into weird abstract shapes during the tweening. This can be overcome with much tighter control of the warping inside the area of the brush. Programs like ImageMaster, Morph Plus and ImageFX can indeed control distortion over the whole area of an image using an extension of the rubber sheet idea mentioned earlier. (No. Of course its not an
obsession!!)
* X Fife *
* "fi t iititi "1 With practice this type o( morph is as easy
to set up as that in ImageMaster, but is much more flexible and
powerful. Overall ASDG's MorphPlus is the best available.
In MorphPlus points are added in the torm of vectors; one end marks the source image, the other the destination. Each new point places another vector parallel to the previous one, and each end can be selected and moved independently or together.
Each vector can be linked to the next by an edge so that smooth warps can be produced, with fewer points. Source or destination points can be hidden and the fade slider adjusted for fine detail work on one image. A zoom facility helps this process greatly. Sets of points - those around each eye for instance - can be grouped independently, saved, moved, hidden or deleted. If moving images (sequences) are morphing, each group can use its own set of tweenlng frames and use different transparency curves to control the cross fading. You can even use an animated set of images as an Alpha channel
to control the transparency. This means that different parts of a moving image can morph at different rates!
The numerous options and tools provided by MorphPlus mean that it Is a much more complex program to learn than ImageMaster's morph module. The basic method of setting out points and vectors is quite simple to use however, and very powerful. Although none of the programs could be tested with moving images, MorphPlus seems to have the most comprehensive set of tools for handling sequences.
These were produced using the mesh set-up that came with the program so they look quite good. When I tried to repeat this with the tiger and woman, I produced a much messier morph. CineMorph takes practice.
This Tiger-Woman morph Image has been created in CineMorph.
Setting the points for warping in CineMorph is radically different from the other morphing programs, using a grid overlay with a point at each intersection. If you have used a point or vector systems, the grid seems difficult at first. Once you realise the technique it is reasonably efficient, but never as intuitive as vectors. There is a choice of lines linking the points, or bezier curves passing through them. The beziers give a smoother warp but are much more difficult to set up.
Individual points can be selected and moved in either window in much the same way as in the other two programs but because there are so many points on screen right from the start, it is quite difficult to arrange them carefully where you want them.
Horizontal rows and vertical columns of points can be added and deleted, and moved as one. This enables bunches of lines to be built up around important features like eyes and mouth. Groups of points can also be multiple selected and moved.
Overall though, having so many points to move makes the system a bit clumsy. This is reflected In the wavy lines In the Tiger-Woman picture shown here. With practice, a better image could have been produced but the time taken to set up this morph was about the same as the other two - ImageMaster and MorphPlus - which gave better morphs.
MAY 1993 Aside from the method of setting points, CineMorph seems to provide broadly the same level of functions as MorphPlus. Sequences of moving images can be morphed and automatic tweening can be used to save work. If the moving Images change greatly, key tweens can be chosen and set up accordingly. Dissolve (cross-fade) and tweening curves can be set up to vary the rate of morphing for different groups of points.
These are the original morphs made with ImageMaster before I realised how Important it was to have similar backgrounds, This Tiger-Woman morph image was and the same orientation of the faces.
Setting up the morphing points is simple enough.
Placing a point on the source screen (at the corner of the tiger's left eye perhaps) produces a matching point on the destination screen. This can be moved to the corresponding point (the corner of the woman's eye). Gradually a set of points can be set up that can be saved to disk, (but not grouped or multiple selected). All edges can be pinned down' with points if you want. As a check, a single image can be rendered, or the whole sequence. During rendering a third window shows the path of each point but unfortunately, this cannot be edited.
Arexx scripts can be run before or after rendering each frame so ImageMaster's processing tools can all be used.
The version of ImageMaster used for this comparison can only morph between pairs of still images, not moving frames, and unfortunately there created in ImageMaster.
Is no zoom mode. (But it may well have been upgraded since last summer, when we last reviewed it AF37. A new version of the whole ImageMaster system is close to completion that promises to be stunning, including a much more intuitive interface). Compared with MorphPlus and ImageFX, ImageMaster is simple but quite intuitive. Coming back to it after eight months it was easy to use without even looking at the manual.

GORDON HARWOOD COMPUTERS DEPARTMENT|2EIt H6. NEW STREET.
ALFRETON, DERBYSHIRE. DE5 7BP TEL: 0773 836781 FAX: 0773 831040 With the arrival of the A1200 or A600 y can now have your hard drive on t inside of your Amiga. Richard Bagul tells you how to go about having a hr disk fitted, either professionally or Dh round HARD DISKS ARF. Truly lovely things. Just imagine it. All the information on your piles of disks, stuffed inside your machine, and accessible in a fraction of a second. No more tiresome disk swapping while playing Monkey Island 2. Juggling four different disks on Wordworth. And no painful waiting around while you load your latest
animation into DP aim IV. What more could you ask for?
A hard disk is like a big floppy disk which is stuck permanently inside the computer.
Since it's not removable, you can get to the data faster, and read or write to it at a much higher speed than with floppies. With the design of the A600 and A 12(H). Commodore have used 2.5-inch hard disks instead of the more common 35-inch disks, which arc used in most of the external hard disk drives on earlier Amigas and in other types of computer.
They also have used hard disks that use the IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) type of interface instead of the more complex, but faster SCSI (Small Computer Systems Interface) type.
With IDE drives, most of the circuitry that controls the drive is built into the drive itself, so the computer side of things is less complex.
This means that Commodore are able to fit the interface on to the main printed circuit board of the Amiga, without the need for any extra add on cards or boxes, unlike earlier Amiga after fitting the drive, smoke begins to pour out of it. Don't bother ringing Wang because they won't send anybody round.
If you're determined to lit a drive yourself, then actually fitting it is not difficult, and shouldn't take you more than 10 to 15 minutes. All that you need to do is open Ihe machine, fit the drive into the cradle which comes fitted to your Amiga, connecting the hard disk to the computer with the cable that should be supplied, and replace the lid. All the kits cither include software for you to format the hard disk and install Ihe Workbench programs, or are already prepared with Workbench installed.
I wouldn't recommend you fit your own disk unless you're reasonably familiar with the innards of Ihe Amiga, and don't mind losing your guarantee. Given that you don't mind losing it. It's not a difficult procedure. See over the page for an illustrated guide to doing it MAY 1993 disk kits - only buy one if you're familiar with the Amiga because models. These 2.5-inch disks are more expensive. But are smaller and use less power.
They're more commonly used in portable Pcs where space and weight is at a premium. They come in sizes of between approximately 20 and 170 Mb. Which is roughly equivalent to

If you use a kit to fit your own disk, you will also lose your warranty. There are rumours that Wang will service machines that have been opened if the problem isn't connected with the hard drive, but we've not been able to confirm this, so even if you've heard similar, don't rely on it.
The companies who have official licences are ZCL (who supply the Calculus chain) and Silica Systems. So, if you purchase an A1200 with a hard disk from either of these companies or get one of them to fit one, your on-site maintenance from Wang will not be affected.

299. 99 -_ -_ -_ -_ •_ _- The prices In black are for Ihe
doat-yourself kits, and the prices In red for fitting by the
suppliers. A dash indicates that the company either does not
supply drives of that sire, or pnees are not available at
present Please also note that although these prices are
correct at the time of going to press, you should confirm
them with the various companies concerned before buying,
because the companies who manufacture and supply these
dealers are constantly changing their prices and the
availability of these disks Is also variable. At present,
there is a world shortage of the larger sires.
49 MAY 1993 yourself. On ihe righl here there's a table giving all of the prices that we could gel hold of.
If you've already installed a disk yourself and are worried about what happens if there's a problem with either the disk or your computer. Trilogic have introduced a scheme where you can purchase an extra two or three years' warranty, even if you've fitted a drive using one of these kits. An extra three years rctum-to-base warranty on a 1200 with an SO Mb hard disk costs £67.99, assuming that the Amiga is in full working order when you take out the insurance. (Trilogic 0274 691115.)
It is possible to get hold of the bare drives from the suppliers or manufacturers, but these should be approached with extreme caution.
Not all 2.5-inch IDE drives will work with the IDE interface built into the Amiga, so ensure that the model has been tested before you buy.
The cables for connecting the disk to the Amiga are also difficult to get hold of. So make sure that you can get hold of them before purchasing. You will also need some software to prepare and install the disk, although fortunately Microbotics have recently made their RDPrep software generally available.. I he other alternative is to get one fitted by a professional. (See below left 'Warranty Blues' for the full story.) At the moment there arc- only two companies w ith Commodore approval: Silica Distribution, who will be selling their kit on to dealers, and ZCL. Who will be carrying out this
service through their Calculus stores.
Other companies are offering a disk-fitting service. But once they've fitted the drive, the Commodore on-site warranty is invalidated.
Most of these companies arc including a rctum-to-base warranty, which means that in order to get the machine repaired you either have to send the machine back to them or ring them to get a courier to pick it up. But you should check the exact details of this warranty before purchasing. Zj IDE RATHER USE SCSI, YOU KNOW When the A1200 was first released, many people were disappointed to see that Commodore had chosen to use IDE drives, because users had been hoping tor the taster and more expandable SCSI (Small Computer Systems Interlace) type instead. SCSI disks are slightly more expensive, but
can transfer data taster, and you can connect up to eight drives and other devices. It's also possible to control other peripherals such as tape streamers, scanners and very large hard disks via this type ot interlace, it you’re running software that will use it.
GVP have recently announced that they will be releasing a SCSI interface for the A1200 which tits In the trapdoor on the underside of the machine, which will include a maths co-processor and a slot for extra 32-bit memory. Prices have not yet been confirmed, but the model with a 16 Mhz 68882 will retail for around £299.
MORE DISK, MORE POWER, BUT FOR LESS MONEY Recently, a company called Software Demon have started fitting drives which are significantly cheaper than the usual 2.5-inch models. This is because they are using 3.5-inch disks, as used in Pcs and expansions tor earlier Amiga models.
Neither the A1200 or A600 is designed to take one of these larger disks, but Software Demon have managed to squeeze one in. It's a tight fit. But it works. The bigger drives use more power than the 2.5-inch ones, so they've had to take the power from the floppy drive supply. Fortunately, modern drives don't require much power, and the model we've looked at doesn't seem to have any problems with power supply. It is fitted with a 240 Mb drive, which is almost twice the size ot the biggest
2. 5-inch disk available. This is very fast, with a data transfer
rate of over 1.3Mb per second, against a typical 0.6Mb per
second for a 2.5-inch drive.
In order to fit the disk, Software Demon have cut two holes in the shielding, and the drive is fitted on to this by a couple of screws. Thus, if you want to remove or replace the drive, you'll need to take the whole thing apart. If you're anything like me, you'll end up bleeding all over it when you slice your finger open on the shielding.
It's a rather tight squeeze when closing the case, and the keyboard presses down on the drive, which in turn presses down on the shielding. This doesn't actually touch any of the circuitry, but it does get pretty close. This doesn't seem to be a problem, but if at any point in the future.
Commodore alter the layout of the motherboard or bring out any daughterboards, this could be a problem. Prices begin at £199 for 85 Mb and go up to £599 for a 426 Mb drive, inclusive of fitting and a year's warranty.
Roll your own Fitting an internal hard disk to an Al 200 is a reasonably simple procedure, as the following pictures show. But before you start, please take note of the precautions in the box on the right... Nbz PUASE NOTE that following this procedure will invalidate your warranty. Neither Amiga Format or Future Publishing will accept any responsibility for any damage to your machine through following this procedure. Disconnect all peripherals from the Amiga, and work on a large, dear, flat surface. Beware of static: use an anti-static wrist strap. Don t eat or drink near your computer.
Remove the three screws at the front and the two at the sides of the A1200. This frees the top half of the case. In the A600 you will need to remove the three screws at the front, and the one screw on the right- hand edge. Lift off the top of Ihe case. A600 owners will need to disconnect the cable connecting the keyboard lights, and A1200 users will need to move the keyboard separately. You should then be able to see the hard disk cradle.
STEP 2 Remove the cradle from the Amiga, and screw the hard disk to it as shown here. It's important that you do get it the right w ay around.
Attach the cable to the disk if it's not already fitted. On the disk there will he too many pins for the cable, but the separate block of six or eight can be ignored, because these are for setting various options to do with the drive. Connect the cable to the two rows of
20. Making sure that no pins are bent.
Connect the cable socket to the pins on the motherboard by applying firm pressure until it fits correctly. Make sure that no pins protrude from either side of the plug block, and that none of the pins have been bent by the socket.
Put Ihc drive and cradle back imo ihe computer, with the cable facing to the left and the highest L- shaped pan of the cradle to the rear. Once the case is put back together, these will hold the cradle steady against the case.
MAY 1993 It's recently come to light that some distributors have been sending out copies of the HDToolbox program that was supplied with the A4000. Which is a copyrighted program. According to Commodore, anybody found doing so may be subject to legal action.
However, on a slightly more cheerful note, Microbotics (h» f kin lm Pwifv l*d IlKk list
* '» I STEP 5 Replace the lid. And screw it back in Reconnect
your Amiga, and turn it on.
When you turn the computer on. You should hear a w hirring noise, which is the hard disk starting up. If it doesn't seem to be working, open the machine again and check the connections between the disk and the Amiga. Try Removing the disk and refitting the cable, ensuring that it fits firmly into both the disk, and the Amiga.
If the disk is prc-fomiatlcd by the company you bought the disk from, it should boot up into Workbench.
If the disk is not pre-for- matted. You will need to run some software to do this. Some companies have written their own software and scripts to install, and others are using software originally designed to work with the Microbotics hard frame disk interface, but this works fine with the IDE interface built into the This is the Mitrobotics software which is used to format A1200 and A60° the hord disk in action. They have recently decided to make this generally available If you've bought a do it yourself hord disk kit ond tho for matting program looks like this, then Commodore would like to
hear from you.... have decided to make their hard disk preparation and formatting software RDPrep available to everyone. Although It's not Public Domain, any dealer or Amiga user can still copy and use this software, as long as It's not altered in any way. This means that it's now more of a practical possibility to get hold of a drive, install it and actually be able to use it.

We could have tried to squeeze a mini one it into the last issue, but because it's such a large and involved game we decided to spend a whole month playing it! So if you haven't bought it already, find out exactly what it's like on... Page 54 B-17 Flying Fortress It’s deep, it's meaningful, and it's on your screen now. MicroProse have promised that B-17 is going
to be the definitive Amiga flight sim - but how close is that to the truth? Well, you'll just have to turn to... Page 76 THE REVIEW CREW Spring is here once again. And what are our cheery reviewers looking forward to?
AMANDA DYSON "Going for drives in my convertible with my hub- bie, and the wind blowing through our hair - well my hair, he hasn't really got much left."
JAMES LEACH "I'm off to the Lake district with my dog. Oh and my girlfriend - I'm forever getting them muddled up you know."
SARAH TANSER "I went to the cinema, and there was a couple tickling tonsils in the seats in front. He was bald, but you know what they say about bald men - they don't need to use combs, apparently."
CLARE HODGSON "I'm looking forward to moving into my new Barratt house, apparently if s a limited edition -1 understand there's only 4.000 others like it on the whole estate!” PAT MCDONALD
• If there's one thing I like to do it's get up early in the
morning, before the sun rises. Once I'm up, I go to the toilet
then get back in bed again."
RICHARD BAGULEY "I like to sing and dance and wave bits of paper in the air, before rushing out and washing my hair in the nearest country rain barrel."
YOU CAN RELY ON US Amiga Format reviews. What is it that makes them so special?
Andy Nuttall explains.. You probably already know that Amiga Format is the biggest-selling Amiga magazine in the world. We've achieved this by offering you. The reader, what we feel are the most authoritative reviews to be found anywhere. This view is consistently supported by the major software distributors, who refer to our reviews before deciding how many games to buy.
We've all been in your situation before, and been caught out by buying poor-quality games.
Now though, we’re in a situation where we can advise you which games are worth buying, and which games aren’t worth the plastic they're stored on. If we manage to stop just one of you wasting your money, then we feel that our job is worthwhile.
We have four golden rules which we stick to like glue:
(A) If a game's not finished, it doesn't get reviewed.
(B) If it's crap, we say it's crap - and it doesn't matter what
the softies think of us.
(C) We have never, and we will never, review a game 'on-site*.
(D) If we're forced to take sides, it's always your side we take.
A1200 COMPATIBILITY The Amiga 1200 has been out for a few months now, and we reckon that anybody producing games now would be pretty mad to release a game that wasn't compatible.
Because of this, we will only inform you if a game is NOT A1200 compatible. We will, of course, test every game on the A1200, so you can rely on our judgement. If you see the logo, it won't work.
Screenplay Spring is in the air, the birds are singing in the trees, the sun is shining - and what are the Amiga Format reviewers doing? Sitting in a dark, cold office, playing games, because they know what's good for them. And they've been playing... Body Blows Those of you who were disappointed with Streetfighter 2 on the Amiga, are in luck! We've been looking forward to Team17‘s Body Blows for ages, so now it's actually arrived we've been beating each other up every day! Find out how well it plays on... Page 58 WAKE UP! TIME TO PLAY... Have you sussed your original Lemmings yet?
Well, I hope you have because those lovable, but suicidal mammals are back. If you can save them, then boats will fly.
If ever there was an out-of-lhe-blue success story, then the original Lemmings was it. Everyone at Amiga Formal treated its arrival in 1990 as jusl another jiffy bag in the mail. But the envelope contained what was to become one of the classic Amiga games of all time. Some snubbed it at first, saying that they didn't like puzzlers, but in the end the sound of one "Oh no!" Would turn even the most hardened cynic into an addict.
MAY 1993 Lemmings has spanned the age groups - no Amiga user has been safe. They even invaded Christmas by appearing on a special (Amiga Format 30) Coverdisk. Dressed up in Santa costumes. But is there enough mileage left in the lovable creatures to carry the legend through to ihe next generation? Well, by the look of Lemmings 2 - The Tribes this thing could last and last.
Kjfrm MEEDS 1 MEC Contact: Psygnosis 051-709 5755 Nothin' gets me down The objective is much the same as on ihe predecessor: you have to lead a tribe of lemmings through a landscape full of chasms and traps to an exit, then on to the next level. There are 120 levels in all (the same number as the first, taking into account the difficulty levels) each posing a problem to solve, but all leading to one goal. And what is that goal? Well, we'd better tell you a story... For starters there's a plot. The lemmings you saved in the first game have migrated to Lemming Island and they've split
into 12 'Tribes', all with separate lifestyles. However, all the tribes have kept their portion of the sacred Lemming Talisman to remind them of their ancestry, and protect them from evil.
All is not rosy though, because Jimmy McLemming has taken it upon himself to These guys’ll die if you let ’em wander. Turn one into an attractor and they’ll dance all night long.
PAY ATTENTION 007, THIS IS WHAT YOUR NEW LEMMINGS DO... travel the island and warn his compatriots of impending doom. He’s informed the elders of each tribe that the only way to save them from extinction is to collect the tribes' 12 different pieces of the talisman together in the centre of the island. Only then can the lemmings summon the giant flying boat that can take them to a faraway safe haven.
HARD DRIVE USERS DMA Design are soon to release a utility which enables you to install Lemmings 2 on to your hard disk.
Contact one of the larger PD libraries such as 17 Bit or NBS (see Page 170), who should be able to supply it for a nominal fee. If you have any problems, contact Psygnosis.
The ancient book of Lcmmingland tells of McLemming’s journey across the dangerous land and of the characters he meets. After sifting through the information found in this ‘tome’ of knowledge it’s up to you to lead the tribes to safety. You must guide them towards the lake in the centre, otherwise they w ill have no chance of surviving the terrors.
The only problem is that although they've evolved and acquired new attributes to help them cope with the varied landscapes, the lemmings are just as dim-witted as they always were - so the 'magic force' is needed to help them survive.
Walk of life The 12 tribes have their own distinctive cultures and buildings which have been influenced by many walks of life. Tor example. There are Beach-bum lemmings, all big and bronzed, while the Highland lemmings career w ildly around, presumably a bit tiddly from too much Laphroag with their haggis.
MAY 1993 Each tribe has distinctive skills. Many lemming attributes are universal, but some you w ill only find in certain factions. There are the original skills their forbears were blessed w ith, but the majority of the population considers these to be a bit mad. And so have developed skills more befitting a civilised culture.
At the stan of the game, you can call up a map of ihe island. The map shows the locations of the various tribes and their ow n bits of Continued overleaf MAY 1993 Another extra long level. This takes valuable time, but you know I do it just for you. This is one of the Beach levels, you can just make out the little guy swimming in the sea. Cute huh?
Ihe talisman. The nearer to the centre of the map ihe chunk of medallion is. The nearer that tribe of lemmings is to the lake.
Before you start playing ihe game, or if you come across a new skill that you're not sure how to use, you can enter Practice mode.
You're given the option to use any eight of the 52 lemming attributes, in one of four locations.
The control system in Lemmings 2 works much the same as it did in the first game. For those of you who don't already know, various attributes arc laid out in a panel at the bottom of the screen. Selecting a skill and clicking on a lemming gives that chosen skill to that particular lemming. You have to use the right skills in the right place in order to get as many lemmings as possible to the exit.
The four elements Balloons, stick-on Icarus w ings and hang gliders are ’Air' skills. Some lemmings utilise Ihe superpower of unaided flight to get them across unbridgeable gaps. Most of the airborne skills take advantage of another new feature of the game - the fan. Clicking on the fan icon and holding Ihe mouse button down will produce a stream of air from the cursor to propel airborne lemmings through the skies.
Among the water-loving lemmings are surfers, swimmers and divers. There are even ice skaters to deal with the frozen stretches of water in ihe cooler lands. Club bashers and scoopers can be made to dig through the earth, burrowing out a sale passage.
The gift of fire has also been discovered on the island. No rubbing sticks together though, the lemmings have bypassed the basics and gone siraighl lo ihe flamethrowers.
A lemming with this skill can blast through the landscape like a hot knife through margarine.
At first, having this number of skills available to you is a daunting prospect. More often than not you'll use completely the wrong type of earth mover at the beginning.
Then you'll gel stuck in a place where you need that particular attribute to escape.
You'll need at least three goes before you work out exactly what's going on. If the try. Try.
Try again method doesn't work for you. Then the option is always there to go and play around with another tribe.
Clicking on the tribe's sector of Ihe map screen will take you immediately (well almost) lo that tribe's present position.
If you eventually manage (believe me.
It'll take weeks) to get all the tribes to the lake in the centre of the island then you are rewarded with a full talisman, and also the safe passage of the lemmings to pastures new .
Pieces of twelve There are three achievement levels in the game, and three colours of talisman: a bronze talisman is awarded for a poor performance, silver for moderate and the highest accolade, gold for a perfect score. A gold piece is only awarded if you finish all 10 levels in a sector with the highest possible number of lemmings surviving to sec another day.
Lemmings 2 has no level codes. Games arc saved on to disk, so make sure there's a formatted disk ready before you start. Otherwise you're liable to lose your hard work. The levels are so diverse that you're likely to forget how you completed a particular level if you have to go hack to it again.
By the end of your first bash at cracking the puzzles. It's my bet that you'll really begin to feel for the little creatures. You feel despondent when you're concentrating on one pan of the screen and the lemmings are making that familiar dying noise off screen.
More sampled squeaks than ever before abound. Each tribe has their own tune - and panicularly lurvcly the songs arc too. The instruments used lo create the songs range from bagpipes in ihe Highlands, to lutes in the Medieval one. But. No matter how diverse the instrument, every tunc seems to have a definite lemmings squeakiness about it.
All Ihe wav through, the game stays true to the original idea of Lemmings. The scrolling is extremely nippy, the puzzles are just lough enough and it's eminently playable If this doesn't get to Number One and stay there for months. I'll eat my Easter bonnet, daffs and all.

CD-ROM is destined to become the premier medium for on-screen entertainment in the early 90's.
No question. So it's no coincidence that Psygnosis has been committed to developing CD-ROM products practically since its inception. Investment, research and a far-sighted dedication to this advanced medium has meant that we’re far ahead of the competition and looking to expand even further as CD-ROM prepares to take the computer games market by storm.
An integral part of this schedule of market domination is the attraction of talented people of graduate calibre to work in this fascinating and highly rewarding environment.

Amiga! Is it streets ahead of its rival? Read on... Body Blows OK. Lei's cul the crap. I know what most of you want from this review, and that is whether or not Body Mans is hotter than Slreelfiglner 2. Well, to quickly pul you out of your misery, you can be assured that it's. Erm. Streets ahead of the Amiga version of that game, so if you're a beat-em-up fan it's money well spent.
MAY 1993 Unfortunately it stdl falls slightly short of the console version, but then SI-2 is the best game by far on the SNES so you have to ask yourself. "Is it worth shelling out the money for a console to play one beat-em-up. When I can buy Body Hlim s for my Amiga for under £30?" - and. Of course, the answer to that is a resounding "No".
It's worth pointing out that I'm not a big fan of the Amiga St-2 at all. And I considered the 87 per cent that we aw arded the game back in Ah'43 to be much loo high a score - 70 or 75 per cent w ould be more like it - so bear that in mind w hen you read on.
What's Streetfighter 21 If you've been sharing a bedsit with Salman Rushdie for the last year, you may not have heard about the console boom. The game Strerlfighler 2 is probably responsible for more console sales than any other game, with multi-million pound advertising campaigns stuck firmly behind it.
This hype carried over to the Amiga version of the game released just belore Christmas, and reports in January suggested that sales of the Amiga game had reached
120. (100 and still rising. That's an enormous amount,
considering it was only an average _ . . .. ...... v
Dug demonstrates his amazing flying blubber technique,
conversion of the game. Where he glues his belly to his
opponent's head.
Now. Though. Amiga owners have got something to bark about, and it's all because of Team 17. The Yorkshire-based softies responsible for such classics as Alien Breed and Projeel-X. Their game is similar in style to SF2. With the characteristic large sprites, animated backgrounds and sampled effects.
Maim that 'toon For those of you not familiar, the plot of the game goes something like this: man fights man. Man wins. Man fights another man. Man w ins. Man fights woman, man wins - and continues in this way until man loses.
MEEDS 1 MEG The details aren't important, except to say you can play one of four characters, and you must fight another nine opponents in separate contests so that you may be crowned winner.
Each of the characters are completely different in terms of agility and abilities, so during the Contact: Team 17 course of the tournament you face plenty of 0924 291867 different challenges.
Fortunately, Kossak s built of sterner stuff, and he's having none of it. The duck and the babe behind look impressed.
MAY 1993 SOME OF THE BODIES YOU COME TO BLOWS WITH... NIK This character is not as wimpy as his phenomenal. Eighties pop star namesake Mr Kershaw.
This Nik is instead pretty hip, sporting trainers and baseball cap. Oh, and he's a bit hard as well, especially when he uses his Inner Energy to produce a bolt of sheer power.
DUG Well, this bloke's just obese, really. He seems to use his vastly overweight body to his advantage, by jumping up and down on the spot and causing major earthquakes, thereby The players' disiinclive characteristics arc accentuated by their heavily caricatured features. Such as Dug with his huge beer-gut and shovel hands, or Ninja with his huge sword and black balaclava helmet. It's very realistic in a cartoony sort of way.
The sound is mostly good quality too.
W ith a tune to match each of the seven different fight settings and lots of sampled speech, which give the game a good atmosphere.
Control is via a normal one-button joystick (which is one-up on the console counterparts), and different combinations of directions and the ftre-bulton will enable you to perform different moves.
As well as the normal punch kick moves, each character has between two and five special abilities, such as energy bolts and whirlwind kicks. To get an idea of the different players' abilities, see below .
Fighting takes place in seven different areas, including the Shaoiin Temple and Ninja Cavern, along with some additional scenes such as a Russian Laboratory and a building site. As with Sl'2. There is no interaction between the scenery and the characters, but it's pretty and includes the odd bit of animation.
Feel the power So. We've established that it looks good and it sounds good, so where docs it lose out?
Although it's extremely playable, and offers an excellent challenge, it does have its problems - however nit-picky they may be.
For the most part, the collision detection between characters generally works well, but w hen Dan tries an upper cut. He can miss his opponent by half an inch or so and yet still magically make contact (like I said, nit-picky but noticeable). All the characters have somc- he has a neat (and gravity-defying) way of leaping and dive-bombing his enemies, and squashing them under his mounds of flab. Urgh.
YIT-U This guy only has two special moves, but one of them is probably the most effective. Speed of Light causes him to advance on his opponent speedily, leaving a blur behind him. Once he's started, it's difficult to stop him - even jumping out of the way is nigh on impossible.
Thing good going for them apart from Maria, who is stupidly thin, and doesn't so much yell as squawk as she kicks you in the face.
Finally, there isn't as much 'feel' as we expected from the game. The 'feel' factor of a game isn't easily defined, but there is something lacking - it just seems a little bit too clinical and robotic.
Still, this is far and away the best Amiga bcat-cm-up ever. It's technically excellent, polished, and it brings up-to-date an area of the Amiga which has been sadly lacking recently. If you already have Slreclfixhier 2.
Sell it and buy body Blows.

Bv day. Sinbad Jnr is a humble apprentice gardener, whose only royal connection is the plants he lends in the palace garden. By night, he's the secret love of the beautiful princess Laila.
But alas. Lada's father (the Caliph) requires a large quantity of green stuff (and I don't mean leaves) to convince him that Junior is the right man to marry his precious daughter. Apprentice gardeners do not earn much, even those who lend the palace greenery.
Arabian Mights Meanwhile, in a castle far away. Ihe evil Vi ier is plotting his evil plans. One day he intends lo rule the kingdom, but first, he wants to marry the princess, and secondly, push the king off some tower in a few years time.
The Vi .ier has never attended any charm school, so in place of the usual romantic proposal he arranges for a demon to sweep the princess off her feet, and cast a spell over the kingdom so that no-one notices. Cunning eh?
MAY 1993 Don't desert me The demon is caught in the act. Though, by the ever vigilant Junior who climbs the walls in search of his lost love. But as he gets there, the demon lifts off with the bride-to-be and leaves Sinbad to lace the music w ith the palace guard who. In a lit of understanding unique to his profession, throw him into the dungeons and leave him to rot.
Here's where you come in. All you've got to do is gel out of the dungeon, fight any creature that crosses your path, destroy the evil Vizier and rescue your true love. Simple, non?
So strike a heroic pose, let the light glint off your teeth, brandish your sword as though you know what you're doing and get on with it.
Getting out of the dungeon is not as simple as it may seem. There are puzzles to solve, treasure chests lo open, currency to collect and nasty enemies lo destroy with your mighty sword. Just because you're called Junior doesn't mean you can't hack-and-slash along with the best of them. There is also help at hand in the form of flashing light bulbs and friendly citizens who haven't fallen under the spell of the evil Vizier.
ARABIAN NIGHTS is available from Krisalis 0709 372290 The gameplay is an easy mix of platform and puzzle and like most games of this genre, try and pick up anything that isn't nailed down. The puzzles are straightforward if you employ a little lateral thinking, but lo progress through ihe game you'll have lo solve them all.
When one needs to be solved, a flashing light bulb appears above your head to offer you a clue. Some of the clues are obvious, but as you can't get killed while you read them, waste a little time in the pursuit of knowledge.
Points are found in the form of local currency. In the dungeon these are gems, on other levels they are skulls, fish skeletons and other weird things. Collect as much currency as you can. It may be required for some puzzles.
The current total, along with other items picked up. Are shown on the inventory screen, which is accessed by pressing Ihe space-bar.
Secret passages are dotted around the levels, which lead to secret rooms filled with treasure.
Strange customs There are nine levels to complete, but only four of them have end-of-level guardians to kill before y ou can progress. When you complete a level, because you arc hopping over to another country, you will have to face the dreaded customs officer. Don't worry though.
Because there's no risk of a quick strip search.
His job is simply to convert your currency into points, and to lighten your load and take anything off you that you don't need any more.
Sheep might fly... The music and sound effccls arc very calchy.
When you hack bits off the scenery, the action is accompanied by a realistic sound effect. The best is on the living carpet levels, where sheep are either being fired al you or they're entered for the high jump in the next Olympics. The ‘startled sheep' bleat should be patented.
Much of the gameplay seems familiar, but as a mixture of different ideas and style this works really well. There is plenty of atmosphere. Built up by the music and effects, which make the game pretty addictive.
But al the end of the day. It's a pretty futile quest. I mean, will the beautiful princess really want to marry an ex-prisoner, even if he did save her life'.’ Sarah Tanser Arabian Nights £25.99 ? Good graphics and well-animated monsters.
I If the game doesn't suck you in. You'll be humming the music for months.
I Tempted towards a Gold for the sheep bleating alone.
I Plenty to do to keep you occupied.

Which computer(s), II any, do you own?
Desert Strike You control your helicopter w ith the joystick and keyboard. As you'd expect, the joystick tilts the helicopter, moving you forwards or backwards, which takes a bit of time to get used to. The fire-button fires your chosen weapon, and the space-bar switches between the three available.
You spin me round It's also possible to control the helicopter by using the keyboard or the mouse, but using this is nigh on impossible, because you inevitably end up spinning all over the place. Pressing that you start out with, but fortunately, the enemy have been considerate enough to leave some lying around. A number of your soldiers are wandering around in enemy territory. They shout 'Over here!' Very loudly when you spot them. Picking them up and dropping them back at the coastal landing site helps to replace the armour chipped away by enemy fire.
MAY 1993 NEEDS 1 MEG Contact: Electronic Arts 0753 549442 Somewhere in ihc depths of the Middle East, a madman by the name of General Kilbaba has taken over a rich Arab Emirate and is planning to end the world by killing us all with a nasty cocktail of nuclear and chemical weapons. In true John Wayne fashion. Mr President (of the good ole USA - where else?) Has decided to send in you and your trusty Apache helicopter to sort out the situation and hopefully avert Armageddon.
Sounds familiar? You'd not be wrong to say that this game has been influenced by a certain military operation that happened a couple of years ago in a country not a million miles away from Saudi Arabia.
This time it's just you against the might of the Iraqi - sorry, not Iraqi. - I mean General Kilbaba's terrorist army. You're in an Apache attack helicopter, while the enemy has soldiers armed with AK47s. Anti-aircraft missiles, gunboats. Helicopters and tanks.
Arabs with attitude An excellent intro sequence lakes you into the game, with some nicely drawn animations, and a good rave-type soundtrack. Quite what this has got to do with battles in the desert I don't know, but it's rather good anyway.
The game is broken up into several missions. Which are then split into several tasks, such as destroying a radar installation, and destroying an airfield. Completing one mission gives you the password to start the next one.
There's no way that you'll Ire able to complete the missions on the stocks of fuel and w eapons You've all seen the war on TV, and now it's your chance to Return to the Gulf. But be careful not to get sand kicked in your face.
THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO BOOM!
The graphics are well drawn and smooth, although the background is a bit jittery, but because the helicopter is smoothly drawn, you're not likely to notice. The game runs in extra half-bright mode, which means that you can get realistic shadows, and extremely effective-looking explosions, although these sometimes seem to be in the wrong place.
Previous efforts at combining flight sims and shoot-cnt-ups have been less than successful. So it's great to see Electronic Arts pull off this tricky combination. Desert Strike has got more going for it than the average shoot-cm- up and should appeal to those interested in strategy games. It also retains the excitement of blasting the enemy to dust.
Strike while the desert is hot!
Richard Baguley O £661 AVIAl Desert Strike EA ¦ £29.99
• Successful cross between a shoot-cm-up and a flight simulator.
• (ireat graphics, good sounds.
• Missions are interesting and varied.
• Occasional glitches in sound and vision, but these don’t deter
from the gameplav.
FIO puls you into the map screen, which shows your location, and the various other targets awaiting your pleasure.
The map also contains details of where you can find fuel and armaments, and where the Missing In Action (MIA) soldiers are located.
You're supplied with information on each mission. And are given new objectives as you work through ihe missions.
Desert Strike runs in a 3D. Isometric sort of viewpoint, which takes a bit of getting used to. Unfortunately, this means that objects sometimes disappear behind others, but this is only a small inconvenience. Steering the helicopter is something of an acquired habit, because it takes a bit of lime to get used to the angle of view.
How sandy is my desert There are plenty of sound effects, ranging from whirring rotor noises, loud explosions and your soldiers shouting "Over here!". These all add to the atmosphere, and there's always plenty going on. Unfortunately, it's too much at times, and occasionally one of the sounds doesn't work, or one is cut off in the middle. However, it's more of an irritation than a problem, especially if you're a fussy so and so like me.
GamesMaster is tough. GamesMaster can handle itself in a fight. So if you're looking for trouble, you've got it. The latest edition is packed with previews, reviews, tips and news. And more humour than you'll find in all the other mags put together.

GamesMaster, you see, is a way of life. It won't just give you the lowdown on the entire video games scene, including arcades, it'll also give you challenges involving top indy-rock, techno-rave bands such as Sunscreem.
And since GamesMaster is by (far the biggest video games mag in Europe, who do you think will be giving you the best exclu- isives, the most shocking news and the wittiest captions? Us.

'Silica Systems Service' r~.-m ~ MAIL ORDER HOTLINE m081-309 1111 SILICA SYSTEMS Postcooe Te! (Work) Tel (Home) When computers), tl any. Oo yop It's a vicious battle to rule the seven seas, in what is one of the best multiplayer games yet seen on the Amiga!
This game lakes ils litle from llie year that the Suez canal was opened. The authors decided that this year, more than any other, marked a decline from the old age of sailing ships, to the succeeding steam- powered ships. And people say propellor heads are dull... You. And up to three other players are traders, starting off in the year 1X54. The idea is to build up a successful licet of ships, open warehouses round the globe, and prey off both the new empires of the developing world and the raw material providers of the third. Guess who gets the rawer deals. Hnim. It’s not as if they could've
set the game in this century now is it? (Little bit of politics - Ed.)
In single-player mode, after setting how long you play for (from five to 26 years) you choose your headquarter's location and are plunged straight into the game. Your base of operations can he in London. Liverpool. Lc Harvre. New York or Savannah. Each place has its own advantages and disadvantages.
In multiplayer mode, you get an extra treat - the ship auctions. All players go along and bid against each other for a starting ship.
A certain amount of physical prowess is useful to beat the others to the mouse, but of course this is optional.
MAY 1993 Infamy! Infamy!
Steamships straightaway, but this is a very dumb move, because in 1854 coal was expensive. So sailboats arc a much better option.
Used ships arc preferable to brand new ones, since they can be commissioned straight from a shipyard, if the port you are in has one.
Buying cargo is much more straightforward. Point and click at the port you are in.
And the merchant's screen comes up. A mer- 1869 is a graphical point-and-click management simulation. You don't have to play via a mouse - keyboard control is much faster, and less dependent on the dubious quality of Commodore mouse buttons. But it does lake more practice to master this control method.
Contact: Flair Software 0661 860260 Buying and selling ships is a skill in its own right. Most new players opt for chant may have nothing to sell, because some products are seasonal. In a well-developed area, up to two commodities may be up for grabs. If your HQ is in the port, you can store excess quantities. You can also open warehouses wherever you go, if you have the cash.
Cash is the big problem. Most places sell things, but merchants are choosy about w hat they buy. They will always offer you a price 111 TELL HIM, Thfl| fl IMGEOWMOFiE.T t cl p s.??
¦A7 Oops, went a bit too far. Overstretching your crew means that new crews are more wary of sailing with you, and so are more expensive.
On merchandise, but if they don't want it then you'll make a loss. Small quantities fetch better prices than huge shipments, but getting small quantities of anything is not easy.
At the top right of the screen is the date.
You click on this for time to move on. And time can literally change the whole game.
There's little point trying to sneak into Savannah for cotton during the American Civil War (1862-1865) because you'll get caught by blockadcrs most of the time. Running arms to Odessa during the Crimean War is similarly fraught w ith peril. Sure, if you make it then the payoff is huge - but you don't make it often enough to make it a good business exercise.
Ich bin ein manual Most of the noteworthy events in the timeline are mentioned in the manual. This quite lengthy tome is unlike any other I've seen. It's got the historical detail of the Wings (Af lb- 79 per cent) manual, the gel-started quick section of a MicroProse manual, and quite a few This is the bottom line - more expensive ships are much prettier and can carry more cargo. Later on. Steamships can be better buys, because they don't get stuck in the doldrums. Earlier on. They are expensive to power - coal costs money.
Gcrmglish howlers that have had me in stitches. It makes damned-good reading, though the translators' English is a lot better than my Deutsch.
It's truly unique, a bit over the top in places and totally sanitised in others. The lengthy description of New World passenger conditions is quite stomach turning, but there's no mention of flogging - a common form of punishment for the era.
Is it any fun? Well, in solo-player mode, it lacks depth. It has some humorous animations, but you don't get enough in the way of difficulty levels or different scenarios. Initially it does seem like a one-track game - well that's how I felt after 10 hours of play.
After those 10 hours, though. I tried playing against some friends. Then the game changed. You sec. If you buy up the goods from a port, or heavily supply goods to a port, then the other players suffer if they try the same run but come second. You have cornered the market and there's not a lot they can do.
OK. Lo be honest after a couple of hours they sussed me oul, and 1X69 became a mother of all battles. We staged 'real' tea races to see who could run the fastest shipments of illegals, who could grab the richest markets right from under your nose. This naturally led to alliances, power groups, treaties and all sorts of other mayhem. The timeline may slay the same, but the way you play alters the game every lime. A bit like chess, but much more subtle and less headache inducing.
Social animal If you never play computer games socially, that is with other people, then you probably won't like 1X69. Well, unless you're heavily into management simulations and like making naval logs lo map out the world markets.
I found it just too pointless in solo-player mode, it's also very, very difficult. The straw that breaks your bank is the taxman, who calls at the end of every year. How true to life.
Usually. I prefer to play games that are more escapist than this. But I did get this one insight from it - merchant navy captains of the last century were often inhumane. The reason why is quite simply that the job demanded it - you had to be in order to slay in business, let alone make a profit. It's naive to judge people from yesterday by today's standards.
MAY 1993 If you're heavily into 19th century nautical history, or you play on an Amiga with other enlightened beings, and the idea of pretending lo be a hard-nosed, back-stabbing, scrupulous capitalist appeals to you. Then go buy this game. Just be prepared to play like a real Thatcherite.

Lei's get one thing straight. This isn't your normal flight simulator, where you leap into the cockpit anil destroy the entire German Russian Iraqi airforce within the first five minutes, using your super hi-tec mcgadcath missiles. This one is going to take y ou a long time to leant about, and a long lime to really get to grips with.
As you may have guessed, this game is based on the BI7 Flying Fortress, which was first unveiled on 16 July 1935. After the US declared war on Germany in 1941. The 8th Air Force was sent to England to join the British in the high-altitudc precision bombing of occupied Europe. Which is where you come in.... B17 Flying Fortress Overpaid and over there The manual contains a wealth of information on the history and tactics of bombing and bombers, but it's a little sparse on flying the plane. I would have preferred a bit more on the mechanics of using the bombsight and a bit less on the history
of the British bombing campaign 1940-41. There's a good run-through of a typical combat mission, but it would have been better if it had been related to the game itself, with screenshots showing the sort of thing you're likely to come across. I'd recommend you give Ihe manual a thorough read through before starting the game.
MAY 1993 There are some nice intro screens, but the music is abysmal. It tries to give a Forties feel to the game, but just ends up making you want to rip out your sound lead. Fortunately, once you get into the game, this music is consigned to the great bomb crater in the sky. And is replaced by a variety of well sampled sounds.
The BI7 had a crew of 10: pilot, co-pilot, navigator, bombardier, radio operator, engineer and four gunners. You take the position of airplane commander, which means that you can step in and take over any of the positions.
All of them can be computer-controlled, so you can just sit and watch if you want.
However, your crew are not too experienced to begin with, so you'll need to keep an eye on them - a helping hand improves their skills.
For instance, the navigator has the annoying habit of getting lost on the way home, but if you put him right, he leams from his mistakes.
You begin by choosing your bomber, its nose art and name. Then vou can choose cither a training flight (bomb the Isle of Sheppey) or a proper mission over occupied territory.
Whichever y ou choose, you get the option of view ing a short film of a reconnaissance flight over both the primary and secondary targets.
You've got to find the target yourself (none of this laser-guided nonsense I. so it makes sense to pay attention to this and not attack the local nursery school by mistake.
Once you're happy with it. You accept the mission, and you're deposited on the airfield.
Taxi over to the runway behind the other mem- Hi. My name is Jeffrey, I’m your pilot and I'm flying at an altitude of 400 feet. The plane, however, is about three inches away from crashing... MAY 1993 hers of the squadron, and take off in order. Contoct: You're in the pilot's seat to begin with, hut if MICROPROSE you're nol sure about this, you can switch over 0666 504326 lo computer control by pressing 'M'. For the first couple of missions, il may be an idea lo let the computer lake control while you look around and familiarise yourself with the plane.
As you'd expect, there's a lot of waiting around while you're flying to your destination.
You can jump through to the next point w hen something's happening by pressing Alt T. or accelerate lime by pressing Alt A. But be care- So who.s ,hjl bra,on ful that you are where you think you are - it's hussy, then?
Easy for a small error in navigation lo send you Absolutely shocking!
$ 8CR0 PROSE SIMULATION SOFTWARE several hundred miles off target. If you do gel lost, you'll need lo have a look around and see what local sights you can spot. The tactical view is also useful, because il tells you what ihe nearest significant town or airfield is.
Of course, there are many people who aren't too happy about you trying to bomb them. German fighters and flak pop up regularly. And you can either let the computer deal with the business of blasting them or step in and deal out the hot lead yourself. You can steer the gun or turret w ith either the joystick or keys, and analog joysticks are not supported.
Freeze, sucker It's well pul together, with one or two exceptions, The samples used for ihe sound are OK.
But there's little variation. The engine noise is the same whatever the revs, and il gets on the nerves after a bit. On an A500 with only I Mb of memory , it's pretty jerky, and there's rather a lot of disk accessing. For some reason, the machine freezes while this is happening, which interrupts the flow of ihe gameplav. For instance, when you first encounter a German plane and start blasting, the screen freezes while the graphics for the hullel-bursis are loaded. However, on an A12(H) w ith a hard disk il all runs smoothly. The plane's graphics are fairly simple, but what there is. Is well
designed, and it all moves very-convincingly.
¦ vine Fortress is a game that will last and last, w hich is why it earns itself a coveted Amiga Formal Gold award. Once you gel into it. The challenge of getting your crew more experienced, without getting them killed will keep you coming back for more, lime after time. Your crew can retire after 25 missions, but you'll probably want to start off a new one. If you're after a quick thrill, you won't find it here. But if you're looking for something that's accurate and atmospheric, this is the one to get.

It's been a while since Chuck Rock's original prehistoric frolic, when he rescued his gorgeous wife Ophelia Rock (snigger, fnarr) from the clutches of the evil. Neanderthal. Glam pop star Gar)’ Grittcr. Chuck's obviously found better ways to spend his time than coming up with appalling stone-related puns, though, because Chuck and Ophelia now have an heir to the family fortune.
'Hang on a minute', you cry in a Les Dennis-y sort of way. 'What family fortune?'
Oh yeah. Well, dubious though it may seem, the brick-brained hero of Chuck Rock is now a respectable and comfortably well-off businessman. In charge of the Fjord (Fjord? That's not a kind of rock) motor company.
Life would be all wine and stone roses if it wasn't for the one blot on Chuck. Ophelia and Chuck Jnr's horizon, in the rotund and flabby shape of the aforementioned Gary Gritter.
Gary is the head honcho of the Dalstone (that's better) motor company. Fjord's major rivals, and lie's deeply jealous of Chuck's soaraway success.
Chuck him Now you might think that the best way lo combat such a situation would be to work harder, design better and more innovative cars, capture a larger market share, mount a hostile takeover and give Chuck the sack (like any businessman worth his salt'd do).
MAY 1993 But Gary hasn't got the patience for that, so he kidnaps his adversary instead and demands that Ophelia signs over the deeds of the company. Ophelia, being a woman, collapses in a fit of tears (of course), but Junior isn't about to sit idly by while his inheritance is stolen away, so he smashes out of his playpen and sets off to mount a rescue.
Chuck 2 follows what it must be said is an extremely similar path to the original - lots of levels of mostly horizontally scrolling, plat- formy action with lots of cartoon-type baddies to clobber and some enormous, end-of-lcvcl.
Dinosaur-related bosses.
Actually. I'd like to pause here and talk more about the bosses, because they're the most impressive the Amiga's ever seen. The bosses in Chuck I were very big and pretty (well, as pretty as prehistoric monsters get), but they were basically just large sprites with minimal animation which glided and twitched about in a not-particularly-special manner.
In Chuck 2 they really seem alive - different bits of their bodies move at different times, and more or less the entire bodies are animated in some way. With particular attention paid to facial expressions. This facet of the baddies' personalities is put to good use in level three, which takes place entirely on the body of a giant dino ensconced in a lake. The ‘boss' is in fact his head, and the mournful expression he wears as you attack makes you feel such a heel for clubbing him to death with your (cr...) club that it's a real struggle with your conscience to continue.
Heart of stone Still, continue you must ('The family's depending on you. Young 'un!'). And you'll have to harden your heart, because things don't get any less cute as you go along.
As with Chuck I. there's laughs aplenty - my faves are the evil dinosaur which, after Chuck Rock 2 Son of Chuck receiving a few good swings of your club, breaks apart to reveal that it's actually a little caveman in a dinosaur suit, and the William Shatncr-stylc wig-wearing thug whose rug takes on a life of its own and attacks you independently when a hearty thwack separates it from its owner.
CHUCK ROCK 2 is available from Core Design 0332 297797 But. For all the impressive giant sprites and funny enemies, it's not all sweetness and light for Clun k 2.

• Lovely graphics, if a bit pivelly.
Refinemenls and enhancements made lo the original gameplay. This is still just an update rather than a real sequel (taking 'real sequel' to mean something which expands and builds on its predecessor, rather than rehashing it).
Players of the first game might well feel they'd be just as well getting out the original and playing il with a sheet of psychedelic- coloured cellophane over the screen lo give the graphics a new look.
And while gameplay-wise the game is practically identical, and a bit faster to boot, it's also a deal more frustrating - there are some annoyingly tricky jumps, made tricky mostly by the imprecise collision detection as regards whether Junior is actually standing on a platform or not.
Lumbering dinos The baddies, apart from the aforementioned bosses, arc lacking in movement. They look groovy, but when il comes to attacking you.
It's nearly always a straight walking-back- wards-and-forwards-and-only-hitling-you-if- you-happen-to-get-in-their-way affair.
This makes much of the game a dull session of platform-climbing and relentlessly battering the fire-button to take care of anything which might cross your path.
There arc other hazards to contend with, (falling rocks, giant snow'balls), but since they mostly move too fast for Chuck Jnr's reactions Junior summons all his might and power to bop the slimy octopus on the head with the club.
To cope with, it's a case of learning when they come and keeping out of their way. Rather than any kind of battle of wits.
Most of this is criticism that could be levelled at about 85 per cent of games, so let's not be too hard on Chuck 2. The main market for this game is going to be those who bought the first one. And if you liked that, this is. In almost every way. A tangible improvement.
Clunk 2 is simple, undemanding fun that brings a smile to your face a sight more often than the average game, and any game that makes you happy is a game worth having a look at. At least.
Game-wise Chuck Rock 2 is almost entirely unremarkable, but as an entertainment experience it's not too bad at all.

"Unit One. Proceed to the mission start- point. Once there you must destroy all targets Is that clear:'" "Headaffirmative, sir. They're history."
Famous last words... Walker has no power-ups. No bonus levels, no coins to collect, and there's a distinctly un- cute main character (unless you happen to be into large, shiny, mechanical chickens). Also, because there are no power-ups, you have to stick with the same weapons throughout the game: and to cap it all. The Walker walks from right-to-left, and the screen scrolls w ith it.
After Lemmings 2 comes Walker, the second game by DMA Design Psygnosis to be featured in this issue. This is becoming a bit of a monopoly! Can they score two hits in a row?
MAY 1993 "Oh no. This level looks a bit more than I can handle. I think I'll go back home to bed." In all races, including Walkers, there is always the odd wimp.
Irr- So. What has it got going for it? Well, remember Zzoom by Imagine for the Sinclair Spectrum? No? Well, in that game you had to control a gun by moving the sight around the screen searching for enemy soldiers. When you found one. You let loose some ammo, and the geezer died with a splash of BLOOD. Yes.
Walker is similar in style to Zzoom. Mainly because you use a big gun to shoot liny men, and they disappear leaving behind a pool of that red stuff.
Violence is golden If you don't like the sight of blood, or if you feel that violence in games will disturb you or your children, then you arc not likely to find much to appreciate in Walker. On the other hand, if you like a good shoot-em-up. That will improve your hand-eye co-ordination and serve as a release for any built-up tension, ihcn look no further.
Contact: Psygnosis 051-709 5755 Eight levels with four different graphic styles await you and your Walker, each is set in a different lime zone. These range from pre-World War II to way into the future, so the game throws a variety of enemies in your direction. In level one (WW1I). Expect everything from hang- gliders to tanks: while in level two (21st century LA) you will find helicopters. Laser-firing tanks, and battered dune buggies that fire heat-seeking missiles.
Most of them can be finished off w ith one or two rounds of fire, but some (such as the heavily armoured tanks which make up the equivalent of the cnd-of-level guardian) take a lot more shots which must be strategically aimed. You have as many rounds to spare as you want, but your fire is limited by a temperature bar which regulates the heat of your gun. If it overheats, your gun stops firing.
There are two skill levels, easy and arcade.
Easy mode not only throws less enemies at you. But it also won't allow you to progress beyond level four - so you can't reach the end of the game without playing it on difficult mode. Excellent!
Now we come to the only slight problem.
Solid gameplay and technical brilliance are not all. We need some variety as well - and there just isn't enough variety to keep you hooked for more lhan a couple of hours at a lime.
Having said lhal. This is definitely a game which you will want to load up again from time to time, just to sec if you can get a little bit further - but for 30 quid that's not much of a consolation.
Walks tall Anyway, on the cosmetic side. Walker is superb. The fluid animation of the main Walker character is matched by the six or seven-level parallax scrolling backgrounds, which are done with such subtlety that it takes a while before you even notice them!
?
Got an A1200?
If you’re one of the growing band of Amiga 1200 owners, you will be pleased to know that Walker will actually detect that you have such a machine, and enhance itself accordingly.
Admittedly, this only means the addition of lots of sampled speech, but we reckon it’s the first game to actually include enhancements as standard - and the speech does make one hell of a difference. Well done DMA Design, we hope that others follow this lead.
The sound effects are even belter, wilh a lol of attention (and memory) given lo getting the sounds right. For example, if you shoot a tank, then it explodes with a sub-sonic booming sample, and then if you keep shooting the wreckage, bits of shrapnel fall lo the ground wilh a satisfying 'clank'. There are more lo describe, if only we had the space.
OK. To keep it short. Walker is the most adrenaline-pumping, hype-inducing, tcstos- terone-filled blast you're likely to see on the Amiga. Check that, on anything. Take a look, or forever hold your peace... Andy Nuttall O Walker Psygnosis ¦ £29.99

• MU UNI *HI MR* M ADVICE Many moons ago, on the 8-bit micros
such as ihe C64 and Spectrum, a company called Leisure Genius
brought oul a computerised version of that old board-game
classic. Scrabble. At the time it was considered to be
brilliant, with a reasonably intelligent computer opponent
and great presentation, including a feature known as dancing
letters' - remember them? (it was a fancy way of jumbling up
the tiles in your rack if you don't).
MAY 1993 One massive problem with the game, though, was that the memory of the early 8-bit computers was very limited, and so only a small dictionary was possible. To get around this, when the program was confronted with a word which it didn't recognise, it asked you if it was a word or not. Easy, ch? Not really, because you could always enter something like 'HGQIKAJL' on two triple-word squares, and score something like 2.(XK) points. When Scrabble then queried the word, you simply pressed Y and the poor computer was powerless to resist.
Power player Now, though, the big guns of the Amiga are blazing, and US Gold have considered that it's about lime computer Scrabble was resurrected and brought up-to-date. The game is very similar in style to its 8-bit ancestors, but it has one major thing that makes it stand hcad-and- shoulders above them: a full OSW dictionary.
For those of you who don't play Scrabble.
OSW is an acronym for Official Scrabble Words, which is a special book containing every word containing less than 10 letters that may be used in the game. This means that stored somewhere on the single Scrabble disk (yep. One disk) is a mammoth 134.000 word dictionary - certainly no mean feat.
So. You may be thinking, the Amiga must take ages to search through that dictionary for words, yes? Well. No. It doesn't - it's blindingly quick. This can be a little unnerving, because you can sit for ages racking your brains for a word, and the computer will immediately inform you that it's incorrect, and then quickly put another word down and begin waiting for your next go.
MEEDS 1 MEG Each player has a time limit of 25 minutes for each game, which can't be changed, and which isn't very long for the average human.
Fortunately, an option is included which enables you to adjust the average response time of the computer player- effectively a handicap system.

Th« Options screen, while not a rivetting read, makes a change from views of the board.
Depending on your lexical ability, whether you're a crossword master or you spell seize 'siczc'. There is a difficulty level to suit you.
There arc 12 different settings available, from a player with a basic vocabulary of around
2. 400 words, to a Scrabble master who can pluck a word at will
from anywhere in the huge dictionary - which includes many
two- lettered words such as 'AE 'AA'. 'AB' and 'ZO'
(essential if you're going to rack up plenty of points).
Nuns SCORE:HOI 12:SI no TILES LEFT in ERG By now you may have noticed that I haven't mentioned the rules of Scrabble.
That's because just about everybody in the world knows how to play Scrabble (if you don't, then go and ask your mum or your grandad or somebody, because they're bound to know). Suffice to say that it involves several players taking turns to throw letters on to a board to form a crossword, and scoring points related to the complexity of the words formed.
The main Scrabble game screen, with the computer player (TSP) at the top of the screen, and little me at the bottom. Actually, talking of bottoms, did the computer rea y put BUM for 13 points? Ips downright disgusting if you ask me.
Scrabble Vile jumpers OK. OK. I realise that Scrabble isn't exactly the sexiest game on earth, and that's probably partly because the president of the British Scrabble Association is in fact Gyles Brandreth. See what I mean? You shouldn't let this put you off though, because if you like using words, especially in crossword-type puzzles. There really is no belter game than this.
And if you need to pep up your English vocabulary. It'll help you along nicely in that direction too.
With tons of options, including a practice mode with a good help facility, and several save-game slots so you can continue a game at a later date, it makes an excellent opponent and referee for any Scrabble player, beginner or otherwise.

Panasonic Quiet We researched the colour printer market in great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful graphic output, yet at an affordable price.
We found the perfect printer in the Panasonic KX-P2180 + KX-P2123 quiet printers.
We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer, you would probably need a quality word processing package to use with it. We found that too, in 'Wordworth', yetota retail price of £129.99 we thought that might be a little too expensive on top of your printer purchase! So together with Panasonic we decided to give a copy of 'Wordworth' free with every Ponasonic printer. How's that for added value?

Roughly based on the TV show of the same name, you must guide a band of humanoids through a series of tough challenges, all related to one fantasy theme, in order to, well. Win. Really. The game is done in a sort of 3D, with the mouse clicking your movement and fighting for you when monsters appear.
If s huge, it looks marvellous and it's extremely difficult, although there's a sort of wizardy fellow to help you out a fair bit. I1 • I MAY 1993 Moonstone Mindscape ¦ £14.99 Reviewed AF32 - 59% Similar to Moonstone, Legend is the better of the two. It's got plenty of atmosphere and a big chunk of tedium-free plot to get you in the mood.
The freedom of Legend, and. Indeed all such games is limited because each location is set and should be visited in the correct order if you're going to be finishing it properly. Trying new ideas out doesn't yield good results in the way you'll find in an Eye of the Beholder-style game. But this is a minor point, and in fact Legend is an enjoyable romp through the misty lands of people who light too many joss-sticks and should get out more often instead.
Storm Master Daze! £12.99 Reviewed ,403 - 90% Billed as 'so much fun you'll die". Moonstone has got a bit of on-box hype to live up to. If the truth be told. I didn't die during or after playing it.
It's the older, storybook-style of gaming, with gorgeous still graphics and maps showing little guys wandering through the Iron Hills and so on.
Knightmare definitely has the exciting realism edge of games like this.
But as a fantasy escape, this is certainly worth a look. It's not really as deep or some would say as boring as many, but it looks very teenage bedroom wall, which must be a good thing. Not bad at all, Moonstone, it has to be said. It's just lacking slightly in atmosphere.
Twin dynasties have been fighting through the centuries on the planet of Urgaa. The reason for this never-ending battle has been forgotten.
Anyway, you're the only person capable of resolving this violence. You must do this by talking to blokes who appear on the main menu and give you info on the enemy's forces, economy and general position.
You can monitor and tweak any aspects of your own land, economy and all military matters. There's also a 3D combat section for when you decide to kick some ass.
Storm Master is fun. You jus* have to be the right sort of person to fully enjoy it.

Phmu-lor Prices Sim _ Jimmy White's Snooker Reviewed AF26 91 % Hey. People play snooker In pubs, don't they?
Well. Pool actually. But this is snooker, here.
The Greatest Beau Jolly £32.99 A compilation with just three games seems stingy. But wait ‘til you see what games these are, then throw such accusations... Dune Reviewed AF36 - 79% Epic book, epic film, er, quite big game. Dune is an adventure where you must travel around the world of Arrakis, or Dune if you prefer, sorting stuff out, getting a grip on the Spice trade and controlling people's minds in order to get rid of the nasty Harkonnen and that. It's a 190 minute film, so don't expect to explain the film here!
Anyway, the game is visually marvellous, pretty playable and good entertainment especially if you've got a few days to spare.
Lure off the Temptress Reviewed AF36 - 92% A point-and-click job. This.
You have got to get out of your cell, get to grips with the virtual cinema thing they've invented for this, and get stuck into an adventure that slowly unravels as you play. There doesn't seem to be a clear point to it all when you start but once you make some headway, it becomes apparent.
The graphics are old- fashioned, but pretty darned workable all the same. They A dungeon with a fire going on in it. Not a pub do the job they're supposed at all. It might be a club or something, though. To, and they give you atmosphere while letting you get on with the investigating, talking and collecting of things. There's lots of these in this game. And it's engrossing, that's for sure.
Not much of an adventure, this. More of a snooker game, in fact. You can play another human or three skill levels of computer opponent and the idea is to beat them. It's all done in astonishing 3D. With amazingly accurate algorithms and stuff - all included at no extra cost.
There's a trick-shot option, and if you're a fan of snooker, this game won't seem like a poor quality effort trying to cash in on the sport's popularity. Archer Maclean wrote it and he wrote it beautifully. A marvellous game and no mistake.

Crystals of Arborea Daze ¦ £9.99 Tvivial Pursuit Hit Squad ¦ £7.99 reviewed This game boasts over 16,000 locations to visit. Fine, but some are more interesting than others, it has to be said. The plot is truly bot-puckering.
Morgoth, the Lord of Chaos has blighted your once-beautiful land with all sorts of unpleasantnesses. People go about their daily lives under a cloud of doom, which casts a shadow of despondency over the stricken, despair- ridden lands of total and utter futility.
And once more, you're just the man or woman to mend this situation.
You must travel around the map of death, visiting all these dreadful locations in order to find the key to making everyone happy again. Simple. Not really.
Fairly long-winded, not brilliant and in fact rather a poor attempt. Still, it's cheap.
94 Metal Mutant MAY 1993 Daze ¦ £9.99 Not previously reviewed Oh dear. Someone's seen Transformers on telly and nicked the idea. In this horizontal-scrolling shoot-em-up you play a robot thing which has got the power to change from a vaguely humanoid shape into a tank, a sort of cat and a large penguin or something.
Each of these mutations will come in useful at some point in the game, and you must be aware of the relative powers that each incarnation has.
But in order to use all the robot's forms properly, you must get pretty far into the game. And that's fairly unlikely because it's not really very good.
So what exactly are you expecting? It's a load of questions on different topics, isn't it? But at only eight sovs, it's a sight cheaper than buying the real thing.
This version has also got charming little graphical interludes which aren't of course, included with the board-game.
The questions are pretty much as you'd expect from the board version, although there's a lot less of them and Lord knows whether they're exactly the same.
And. Er. That's about it for this. A lot of fun if you've got a load of people round to have a go. And you can't cheat as easily, either.
1 Terminator 2 Hit Squad ¦ £7.99 Reviewed AF29 - 60% There's fighting, there's driving along in various vehicles and there's more fighting.
Terminator 2 is a standard multi-level licence.
Competently done, but not breath-taking, it's a much more sensible game at this price, though especially now all the fuss about the movie has died down.
The game tries to recreate various scenes throughout the film, like the one in the hospital corridor where the two Terminals first meet. There's a beat-em-up and shoot-em-up game, a couple of puzzlers and a driving game. Not as good as the Batman licence though.
69% Test Drive 2 - The Duel Hit Squad ¦ £7.99 Reviewed Afll - 58% Fancy a bit of 3D driving, do you? If you don't own a car, this might do instead. You can drive a Porsche 959 or a Ferrari F40 (some choice, eh?)
And the idea is to race the car you haven't chosen. You're on public roads and there are other users around. Accidents are a perennial possibility.
The trouble with Test Drive 2 is that the sense of speed isn't quite enough to excite you. It's smooth, slick and nicely done otherwise.
But there’s something lacking which you feel could have been worked on. Look at Formula 1 Grand Prix, for example.
M X-BACKUP H PROFESSIONAL Quattro Power Machines CodeMasters ¦ £7.99 Not previously reviewed Four games, each packed with horsepower, apparently. Let's see which can burn off the rep-laden Sierras at the lights... X-BACKUP PRO is the most powerful disk duplicator utility package ever designed for the Amiga Violator More of a SW V-style blaster than a car game this. It's pretty diverting is Violator. Once you start to play, you'll find it hard to stop. The graphics aren't magic but the difficulty is set just about right.
Rather an enjoyable game. It has a slight PD feel, but if you can live with that you've got a game to enjoy at least until EastEnders is on.
For backing up your original protected software, X-BACK UP is a must, however it offers so much more.
Grand Prix Aha. A Badlands!
SuperSprint-style game.
There's a circuit on each screen, and some micro- scopic cars to race round them in. Nigel Mansell would never have retired from F1, had he had these sort of circuits to drive.
Not particularly edifying. But not rubbish. Not worth a great deal more ink than this, though.
Pro Powerboat Pretty essential to the powerboating fraternity, this is a bit of a laugh. It's a scrolly sort of steer- around game, and it's not going to set the world on fire, primarily because it's set on water, which, as every chemistry student knows, doesn't bum.
Despite being made up of hydrogen and oxygen, apparently.

Word Publishers go beyond simply producing normal letters and documents (at which Final Copy 11 naturally excels) and progress into a world where how the whole document looks is just as important as what it says. Admittedly, this can be achieved with Desk Top Publishers, but they can t easily be used as Word Processor especially when a good kwking letter needs creating quickly - they're far too cumbersome.

NUMBER OF WINS Using the M command you can win easily by putting 02 into location 4063C, then deliberately losing the round.

Look no further, as the German authors Blue Byte provide you with more tips and codes than you could
waggle a twig at... B While playing on the German side, collect your units around the artillery. And wait for the approaching enemy (A). Then its very easy to stop the enemy soldiers while the artillery is getting stronger.
¦ Be aware of the short range of the light artillery , and that the heavy and medium artillery can't shoot one round when they have moved. Let's say you have a very strong artillery and (Hi the enemy is waiting for this unit to move before attacking, and C) your heavy artillery' gels in the range of the enemy's heavy artillery. You should move light artilleries next to it.
And wait for the next round. When the heavy artillery isn't able to react in the next round, your light artillery can. And covers the front range of heavy artillery.
¦ Repair damaged units. One fatal mistake when playing Hnllle Isle was producing new units, and letting the experienced ones fight in the frontline. Save your energy and spend on repairs. An experienced unit such as Elite Infantry can w ithstand most enemy tanks for at least two rounds until the reserve arrives.
B Bunkers arc difficult to take even with air support.
It's not uncommon for even the best 'warriors' lo lose their best troops while taking the enemy's HQ because they forgot about the bunkers.
¦ When producing units, always make planes D Planes can only be attacked by l-'lak Units or Elite Infantry, and they're the most important in the game.
¦ Try to destroy the anti-aircraft units first. Don't be afraid of aeroplane losses at the beginning. Sure, it's important to recreate the air squadrons, but because the computer will mainly build infantry it's important that the anti-aircraft sites are destroyed early on.
MAY 1993 ¦ If the situation is hopeless then try and: collect your remaining units, make sure you have more than one infantry , then set one infantry to the front and hold the others back iEi. When you attack, the computer will try to destroy the infantry , while you can position your artillery and bomb him into the dust.
¦ Keep your strong units in motion, and save them from enemy attack. This enables you to open more than one front and entangle the enemy.
¦ Use your planes to weaken approaching troops while still out of reach for the artillery.
¦ The best way to win is to hold the positions you have at the beginning of the game. Weaken the enemy troops whenever you can. Anti llien attack.
Strategically. Hisiitry Line is a rather more defensive game than Hnllle Isle. 'Z?

IT'S THE PATHETIC TIPS!
Well, I'm disappointed. We only have three crap tips for you. Dear reader, because it seems that only sane people have been sending them in.
Worry not however, for the tips we have are rather amusing (if maybe a little contrived).
Here they are then: Kevin Edwards of Birkenhead writes: *1 have a universal cheat which will work for ALL shoot-em-ups. When the game begins, simply press the fire-button to kill the monsters, thus allowing you to progress beyond." Read Vii do we. Kev?
Grandslam ¦ 081-680 7044 Reviewed AF43 - 90%
6. If you practiced fade in coaching, this short par four is a
birdie chance.
3. A par five which isn't long, but does require accuracy from
tee to green.
4. A long straight drive will leave only a pitching wedge on to
the green.
5. A smooth swing and good connection should see you avoid the
water.
2. You can alter the directional set-up here. Hit diagonally
across the tee.
102
11. Make the most of this simple par four.
Birdies don't often come any easier than this.
12. If your second doesn't reach the green, a chip and putt
will still get you one under par.
7. Driving between the water hazards will leave a birdie chance
on this par five.
9. Try to put the water out of your mind, and swing straight.
A four is a good score here.
10. No hazards around the screen here, so now's your chance to go
for an 'ace'.
13. Select the best club and strength, and try and make the
fairway off the tee in two.
15. Play per centage golf, and get your drive on to the island
for good- positioning.
16. Drive long, go for the green in two. Guaranteeing at least
a birdie - but be be careful.
17. Water, trees, bunkers and rough. If you make a bogey, smile,
it could easily be nine.
14. Attack the pin and put backspin on the shot for a good
position and birdie chance.
- Stranded on an island, branded a fool, what will they say,
Monday in Whitby- sang the Captain.
Grandslam's David Birch gives tips for each hole of the first course. Now you've no reason for that poor handicap!
18. Try to drive over the right of the fairway, trees on the left
block your way on to the green.
8. A four or five- wood fade is the tee shot here. Then it's a
medium iron on to the green.
1. Keep your tee shot on the left of the fairway for attacking
second shot position.
Lastly, we have Gareth Watt of Dundee: "I have discovered another exciting key combo which you can perform in Monkey Island 2.
Instead of holding down both Amiga keys and both Alt keys, try holding down both Amiga keys and the Ctrl key. The screen goes white and the computer resets. Spooky or what?" Yes, Gareth, very clever - I don't think! Oh. By the way, using the word 'spooky' is neither big or clever. Anyway, have an exclusive and priceless Amiga Format pin badge for your crap tip. Until next month, keep 'em coming!

• CSV » » 4r » Becky Hughes of Bromsgrove comes in with this
extremely bizarre tip for MicroProse's Formula One Grand Prix.
She says: "Enter a race, then make your car indestructible.
Drive backwards around the track, and smash into each car as
it comes along, until you have nobbled all of your opponents.
Now you can simply turn around, go the right way around the
track, and win the race easily!" Thanks, Becky! Have an AF
enamel pin badge.
This is the situation. You're confronted by a large and horrific monster. Try and kill it by shooting it.

Andy Nuttall dons his paper hat and doles out fries-shaped tips for the masses... INDY'S CRETE TIPS I’ve come to a halt in the caves under the island of Crete in Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. I have the gold box and the two beads of If you're looking for Atlantis. Orichalcum. But I you should cast you, eye on me. i„d my way out. You're my only hope!
Tom Gooding Lincoln OK. You need to go back down the first elevator to where you left Sophia, then walk through the door at the back. Tell Sophia she won't fit that it's narrow, and that she'd only fit through with luck. Go through the doorway and up the stairs.
Use the amber fish, talk to Sophia, then ask her to give you the necklace. Tell her you need to hide it. Do as she says, then tell her that you want to put it in the gold box. Go into the next room, down some steps, then use the amber fish.
Use the ship rib on the wall, and walk through the door on the right. Use the sunstone, then the moonstone, and finally the worldstone.
Line up the rising sun with the horns, then the waning moon and the city with darkness, then press the spindle. Walk through the door, don't argue with Kemer, and give him the stones. Use the ship rib on the rocks to the right then walk down to the submarine.

BIZARRE INC Normally you gel requests for cheats to help complete games, but I'm asking for a cheat that will make Sensible Soccer harder! This is because I find that all the teams are loo easy to beat after a little practice.
Peter van der Spoel Holland Well, there isn l really an official cheat to make the name more ilifjienlt. Bin yon eonhl always try one of the following: 11 Turn your T' monitor off while playing.
21 Turn your joystick upside-down while playing.
Si Gel your mum to play, then go and stand in the bathroom ami shout directions to her in Swahili. That one's a bileli.
SING A RAINBOW I have reached Monster Island in the game Rainbow Islands, and collected all the jewels, but I can't get past the Dracula at the top of level 12. Does collecting all the jewels make any difference to your progression to the fourth level?
Liz Gittens Sheffield Getting past Dracula is much too difficult, so yes. You must collect the jewels in the order of the rainbow (Red. Orange. Yellow. Green. Blue. Indigo. Violet to open the door. Then jump into the door to progress.
NEXT SAMURAI I'm pulling my hair out trying to gel past level eight of First Samurai. After completing all eight levels (including the cnd-of-level guardians) in the correct order, my Amiga tells me to insert disk two which is already inserted. No amount of joystick waggling seems to have any effect - is it something I'm doing w rong or does my Amiga simply hate me?
C A English Syston Ah. I assume that you have First Samurai from a VBI Soft compilation. Apparently a few of the disks produced were faulty, and this unfortunately caused the machine to hang up after level eight.
All is not lost, though - simply pack up your disks, and send them to VBI Soft al Finchley House. 707 High Road. North Finchley. London. NI2 OBT, and they will replace them for you ALIEN BUG Please, please could you help me with level eight in Alien Breed Special Edition ‘92? Where do I find duct three to proceed to level nine? Also, how do I gel to the room on level eight with the two free men inside?
Tim Ridgers Northwich 105 Both of these problems are caused by a graphic bug in some copies of Alien Breed '92. Which went out in a bad batch. It can be Jived by using a small program which ice included on the AF4.1 Coverdisk. Called Alien Breed Fix. If you haven't got issue 43. It's still available from Amiga Format back issues t Page I5N).
MAY 1993 I WANT TO BREAK FREE Please print a cheat for Arkanoid 2. I realise that it's an old game and put an end to my frustration.

• All Amigas • 1 Mb Required • All Amlgas • Get AMOS for cheap
This tutorial is designed to help you get the most from the
programming language AMOS. It you don't have AMOS, but would
like to have a go at programming your Amiga, you’re in luck,
because Amiga Format featured the complete AMOS program on the
January 1993 Coverdisk.
Now, if you didn’t buy that issue, don't worry because you can still get your hands on the truly spectacular AMOS language. Turn now to Page 158 and buy it from back issues.
AMIGA FORMAT The main title screen was created using Dptint IV. The text was anti-aliased by hand and a single bullethole created by freehand using the magnify mode. Then the same hole was stamped five times across the screen.
So far this series has covered how you go about setting up an AMOS program: an elementary game of the Pong variety and last issue a handy little database utility. But what’s this month s tutorial about? What do the w ords SW V. Project X and Smash 7V mean to you? They’re all shoot-cm-ups. And that’s the genre you’re going to be programming in; it won’t quite be of the calibre of the aforementioned, but you’ve got to start somewhere. I mean the first car Enzo Ferrari designed wasn't a 250 GTO you know!
Getting the most from your AMOS COVERDISK It's time for another dip into the AMOS programming language, this time we show you how to program your own bug-blasting shoot-em-up. Just complete the easy-to-follow steps.
WorkirT on a game gang Constructing games in AMOS is easy, because you can create graphics and sounds elsewhere and incorporate them in your AMOS programs. Graphics can be made in Deluxe Point or any other IFF paint program: sprites can be built using sprite editors and sounds can be sampled using any sampler. The results of these exploits can be installed as part of an AMOS program, saved into memory banks and hidden in memory.
Once you've loaded Amiga IFF graphics with the LOAD IFF command you can pack them away into memory banks, using the SPACK command, like so: Spack 0 To 6 which packs the contents of screen 0 into memory bank 6. To unpack the spacked memory bank on to the screen you just have to type: Unpack 6 To 0 decompacted, it appears on the screen. The sounds in your game can be similarly tucked away from sight, using sample banks. The sound samples can be made using your ow n sampler, or gleaned from a BBS or PD disk. You make them into a sample bank using Sample_Bank_ Maker. AMOS on AMOS disks, or the
sample bank program w ith Easy AMOS.
And after a few milliseconds waiting w hile the screen is Sprite banks can be created by designing the sprites in Dpoinl and grabbing them using either the AMOS sprite grabber or SpritcX.
BugHunt This month's program has all the above features, and splurges together to make a bug-blasting shoot-em-up.
The aim of the game is to blast the bugs and score points. It's deliberately elementary to allow you to grasp the basic concepts. Suggestions on how to makefile game more complex will be covered next issue.
II But on with some bug blasting - firstly load the sprites, sound samples and IFF graphics from disk.
Load AMOS, and with the AF Coverdisk in DFO: hit the ESC key to get to Direct mode. Type: DirS="c£0:eWOS_Material ' Then type: and a listing of the contents of the AMOS drawer on your disk will come up on the screen.
You will see files, called: Continued overleaf spr1t es.abk sounds.abk MAY 1993 To load in the IFF file, type: The picture will load on to the screen. Now type:
2) After a pause, the screen will be packed in the memory bank.
You can find out if this is true if you type: List Bank and a
list of the memory banks w ill be shown.
31 Next you load Ihe sprites and sounds by typing: load 'sounds.abk”,5 the comma 5 means the abk file will be loaded into bank 5.
Type in the listing. First to hide the cursor and the pointer, plus turn off ihe flashing colour, colour 3: Then unpack your title picture: Here's this month's list: Rem ** BugHunt.AMOS ** Rem ** 1993 Amiga Format ** Rem Hide : Curs Off : Flash Off Unpack 6 To 0 Dim ALIEN(5) For 1=1 To 5 : Sam Play 15,1,20000 : Wait 5 : Next I Wait 25 Locate , 10 : Paper 0 : Pen 4 : Centre ” press a key ’ Wait Key Flash Off Screen Open 1,320,200,16,Lowres Double Buffer Get Sprite Palette SCORE=0 NEWGAME: LIVES=3 : BUGS=5 : SX=50 : SY=100 : AX=320 : AY=30 MISSFLAG=0 : SHIPFLAG=0 : ALIENFLAG=0 Curs Off Cls 0

To accompany the title screen play back the sound sample number I - a gunshot. In this instance play it last five times using a for next loop: MAY 1993 For 1 = 1 To b : Sam. Play 15,1,20000 : Wait 5 : Next I 41 SAM PLAY can be used in two ways If you say SAM PLAY I it plays the first sound sample in bank 5 at the playback speed it was recorded. If you say SAM PLAY I S. 1.20000 however it plays sample one at a
frequency of 20.000.
5) After a pause, you're into the main bit of the game.
The game screen is a 16-colour 320.200 (NTSC size for US dudes) screen. Turn on DOUBLE BUFFER which is a special screen buffering mode for sprite moves, making them smoother. Then say: Get Sprite Palette in order to grab the palette of the sprites you have created. (GET SPRITE PALETTE works for bobs or sprites, don't forget this.) And then finally you set your score to 0. And that ends the basic set-up of the Biighuni game.
The main loop 11 Each time the game starts afresh it needs to get back to this point, so give it a label.
NEWGAME: Each time the game comes around to this point it resets all the variables to their initial states, which is why it's usually called 'initialisation'!
LIVES=3 : BUGS=5 : SX=50 : SY=100 : AX=320 : AY=30 MISSFLAG=0 : SHIPFLAG=0 : ALIENFLAG=0 Obviously LIVES and BUGS are the amount of lives you have for each game and the amount of bugs to hunt, SY. SX. AY and AX are the start points of the ship and the aliens.
2) After printing the score and waiting for you to read them,
draw a random slarfield on screen: ),Rnd(200) This means that
50 dots with colour 15 (white) arc plotted randomly to any
location between 0 and 320 across and 0 and 200 down.
3) The next routine is the main program loop, which repeats until
BUGS=0 or LIVES=0. Either you are- dead or all the bugs are.
The first bit looks at the joystick and moves the ship in
the direction you choose, using JLEFT. JRIGHT etc. The
variables for sprite coordinates in the program are called
SX and SY for the SHIP. AX and AY for the aliens, and MX and
MY for the missiles.
Repeat If Jleft(l) anc SX 30 Then SX=SX-2 If Jright(1) and SX 320 Then SX=SX-2 If Jup(l) and SY 0 Then SY=SY-2 If Jdownll) and SY 199 Then SY=SY*2 For example if the stick is sensed pointing left, then 2 is subtracted from the horizontal variable SX, moving the ship two pixels to the left. This routine also checks to see if you are trying to stray off the screen.
Any X co-ordinate less than 30 and you stay put, any greater than 320 you stay put. And the same is true in the Y axis. Having figured out if there's anything needed to be done, the ship sprite is positioned on the screen with: Bob 1,SX,SY,1
4) If you're blown up by hilling any thing (checked in another
part of the program) a flag called SHIPFLAG is set to I. The
next line to sec if this flag is set and if it is it rubs out
the sprite and resets SX and SY to the start position.
If SHIPFLAG=1 Then Bob Off 1 : SX=50 : SY=100 The next line takes away 2 from the X position of the aliens, and puts it back in AX. This means that each time the program loop goes around the aliens step forward (wo pixels.
5) Next you have to check to see if the aliens have managed to
reach the edge of the screen. AX position - 30 should do it;
make sure the sprites are completely off the screen.

ONE PIECE DUST COVER ALSO AVAILABLE - PLEASE CALL EUROPEAN DISTRIBUTORS REQUIRED.
The action takes place on the main game screen. The starfield is created with a random dot-plotting routine, all the other graphics were created in the SpriteX sprite designer program and saved as a sprite bank.
F AX=-30 Then ALIENFLAG=0 If AX=-30 Then SHIPFLAG=0 If AX=-30 Then AX=320 You have to test three limes, once lor resetting the flag for the ship, once for resetting Ihe Hag for the aliens, and once to rest the aliens to the other side of the screen by setting their X co-ordinate to 320 again.
61 OK. Once you've checked for the joystick and the position of the aliens as they tramp across the screen, then check for the fire-button. This is slightly trickier, because you have to check only once for the fire-button. And then stop checking once it has been detected or you get a horrible staccato rasping noise. To guard against this, set a flag as soon as the button is pressed: If Fire(l) and MISSFLAG=0 Then Sam Play 1 : MISSFLAG= 1 : Bob 2,SX,SY,2 : MX=SX : MY=SY Once this flag is set. It can be tested for each time you look for the fire-button. This means that each time you press the
fire-button it only fires once or twice a second instead of several hundred. Then you lest to sec if a missile is active before you move it. If you don't test this then you could find ghostly missiles whizzing MAY 1993 across ihe top of your screen before the game starts.
If MISSFLAGd Then Add MX, 5 : Bob 2,MX,MY,2 : If MX SX*100 Then Bob Off 2 : MISSFLAG=0
7) Next there's the collision detection, where bobs I and 2 arc
checked to see if they arc hitting anything. If the flags arc
0 then they haven't just hit something and can safely blow up.
If Bob Col (1,3 To 7) arid SHIPFLAG=0 Then Gosub _BOOM If Bob Col (2,3 To 7) arid ALIENFLAG=0 Then Gosub _ABOOM
H) More of _ABOOM in a minute, but for now let's just say that
both these lines check for collisions. The first line checks
to see if the ship (Bob I) has collided with any aliens (Bobs
3 to 7). If it has then enter the TECH HELP If you have any
initial problems with your AMOS Coverdisk or any technical
problems with AMOS itself, phone Europress Software on 0625
859333 and ask for the Technical Help Dept. They wrote the
program so they will know what to do if you go wrong.
Subroutine _BOOM to explode the ship and take off a life. As soon as a collision is delected, a check is made to sec if the Hag is equal to 0. And if it is. The subroutine is activated. As soon as the subroutine is actioned, the Hag is set to I so the check is not made. The second line checks to see if the missile hits any aliens in the same way.
91 If you hit an alien with your ship and you go boom, then it simply means you explode. If a collision is detected you are sent to the subroutine which makes the ship blow up.
_BOOK: Boom SHIPFLAG=1 Bob 1,SX,SY,4 Wa i t 10 LIVES =T,IVES-1 First you make a boom noise with one of the built-in explosion noises, then you set the SHIPFLAG Hag to I so no other collisions can be detected. Next the ship is replaced w ith image 4 from the sprite bank which is the explosion, and one life is lost by subtracting I from the LIVES variable.
10) Now check how many lives or bugs there are left, and if
either of these variables is 0 then you play the sound sample
slowly to make a long booming noise, and turn off all the
bobs using a little loop: Until LIVES=0 or 3UGS=0 Sam Play
15,1,1500 Wait 100 For 2=1 To 7 Bob Off Z Next Z Goto NEWGAME
The GOTO NEWGAME pan sends us back to the beginning to reset
every thing and start the game again.
Alien plotting
I) Plotting the alien positions on screen, and keeping a note of
which arc dead is done by making an array called ALIENt) and
storing the Hags in it. At the start of the game you dimension
an array of five locations: Dim ALIEN!5) Each time the game
resets you have to toggle all these flags back to 0 and do
this w ith a little loop: ALIEN(Z)=0 Next Z
2) To print each alien on the screen you have to look at the
array, and in the middle of the program loop, you only print
an alien up on screen if it's still active: To 5 LAX.)
Bob FURTHER READING If you want to read more about AMOS, we insist that you get the manual and examples disk from our mail order pages (Page 154); a snip at £13.95. You don't have AMOS1 Well, how about buying a back issue of Amiga Format 42 with AMOS free on the Coverdisk?
SKIP: SPACErSPACE*30 If SPACE 120 Then SPACE=0 Next J As each alien is offset 30 pixels away from the one above, you skip to the label SKIP if an alien is dead, then add 30 to the variable SPACE which tells the computer where to print the next sprite, leaving a big gap where the sprite should be. Now even when an alien is dead the remaining aliens keep the same position in the wave. The subroutine _ABOOM or 'alien boom' says an alien is hit. And sets the flag for that alien in the ALIEN!) Array to I. meaning it is dead.
_ABOOM: Boom ALIENFLAG=1 Then it turns off the missile sprite: Bob Off 2 and checks to see which alien bought it. Using Ihe COL(A) command. This returns Ihe sprite number of ihe collision, and this number is used to set the flag in the array.
D=0 For A=3 To 7 If Col-I A) Then D=A Next A
3) Then you need to find out where the explosion should take
place, by seeing which alien got hit and setting Ihe correct
offset to place the explosion.
If 0=3 Then _OFFSET=0 If D=4 Then _OFFSET=30 If D=5 Then _OFFSET=60 If D=6 Then _OFFSET=90 If D=7 Then _OFFSET=120 and finally the explosion is substituted for the alien which got hit by the missile, and the flag is set for that alien. Notice how the explosion is placed to match the alien that got hit. (In a more complex game with more random waves you would have to calculate Ihe position of ihe alien more exactly.)
Bob D.AX,AY*_OFFSET,4 ALIENID-2)=1 Wait 10
4) The reason you subtract 2 from the number of the sprite, which
go from 3 to 7. Is to get the right number of the array, which
goes from I to 5. So flag I equals sprite 3. The wail command
pauses for a fifth of a second to show Ihe explosion before
the game moves on.
Bob Off D BUGS=BUGS-I SCORE=SCORE+100 Before you return from the subroutine, you set Ihe score, take one away from the number of alien bugs and turn off the alien which got hit.
Once you've typed in BugHuni and played it for a while you'll probably start to yearn for something a little bit more adventurous complicated. And if you wail unlil next month, your yearnings will be satisfied because we'll show you how to make it a fully featured shoot-em-up! O The PC1204 4MB Memory Expansion for the Commodore Amiga 1200.

AMIGA 1200 HARD DRIVES WHY CALCULUS IS DIFFERENT Before you buy, ask the question, is this a Commodore approved system, does it invalidate my warranty and if it fails will the Commodore authorised repair company, Wang UK visit my home, repair my system and not invalidate my warranty?
Calculus are the first Computer Stores to offer official Commodore approved systems. Call your local Calculus Stores for further details.
With so many computer dealers closing down it would be understandable if you worried whether sending money to a mail order company was the wisest thing to do. Of course not all mail order companies are a problem, there are a few that are well established. However, for total security why not call the Calculus number.
We will not take your order or ask you for money, what we will do is give you details of your local Calculus Store, they will normally have in stock the product you wish to buy or will obtain it for you to collect the very next day. How's that for security! All that and expert help and advice as well as hands-on demonstrations that is why Calculus Stores is the largest independent computer group in the UK today and Nationwide!

Lets get 'serious Amiga Formal has been voted magazine most Influencing buying decisions' by dealers in trade magazine Computer Trade Weekly lor three years running. That's because CTW know our reviews are the most trustworthy: what we say, you seem to agree with.
Simply enough, that's because a) we know what we're talking about, and b) we're honest. We know what you want, because we're Amiga enthusiasts ourselves. And because we're Amiga experts, we test everything to the full and see how it performs.
We don't review anything on-site' and we won't review it if it isn't finished just so we can claim an 'exclusive'. If a product is let down by poor features, If it's difficult to use or if It's overpriced, we'll tell you. But on the other hand, if it's well worth the price, or does something amazing, we'll make you aware of the fact - and look out for the Amiga Format Gold award that distinguishes a truly excellent product, one that really stands out from the crowd.

PageStream 2.2 lias given Gold Disk iheir first sniff of
real competition. Although the previous release of
Professional Pa.go offered numerous new features, many
reviewers suddenly started lo realise that perhaps there
was more to life than ProPage. Even Marcus Dyson. Al' editor
and DTP professional, had to conclude in his review of
PageStream 2.2 that "ProPage has finally met its match."
Undoubtedly the best DTP progrom on the AMIGA, it even rivals OuarkCupress on the Mot (the program this magazine is laid out with). An excellent new feature are these Post-it notes. They enable you to make notes to yourself, but when you tome to print out the printer ignores them.
In an attempt to re-establish themselves as the leading developers of Amiga DTP software. Gold Disk have launched Professional Page version 4. Possibly the program's most adventurous upgrade. Boasting many new features. Including full support for Ihe new AGA chip set. ProPage 4 redefines the standards in Amiga DTP. Like the previous release, it requires some hefty hardware just lo get started - unless you own an Amiga with a hard disk and til least 2Mb of memory, don't even think about buying ProPage.
- O NO UJ The major addition to ProPage 4 is its support for
the AGA chip set's new 256-colour screen modes. You aren't
restricted to the previous 64(l-by-5l2 pixel screen though -
thanks to ProPage's increased integration into the Amiga's
systems software. ProPage can be run in any one of the complete
range of 'Productivity' Amiga screen modes.
PROPAGE 4 is ovailabie from Silica on 081-309 1111 PRINT DOCUMENTS AT YOUR LEISURE With version 4. There are two new utlities: the Picture Editor and ProSpool - a handy document printing utility that removes the need to boot ProPage every time you want to print. Written by Eyo Sama (the man behind Gold Disk's Font Manager conversion program). ProSpool enables you to print documents, plus. In true time-saving fashion, ProSpool can send documents to your printer, so you can print when you're elsewhere.
The Picture Editor is designed as an integral part of ProPage, so you can send any bitmapped image held within a picture box oil tor further editing. Ottering the familiar Dpaint-Uke user interlace that everyone's come to expect from graphics editors. It's a no-nonsense, mini paint program that offers all the usual paint tools, including treehand draw, boxes, circles and airbrushes.
Surprisingly, the graphics editor doesn t support the AGA chip set. So it’s somewhat less useful when used on an AGA Amiga. For quick illustrations though, its presence can be a boon, saving you the hassle ot having to load a program such as Dpaint.
If you really need the resolution, you can even run ProPage in SupcrHiRes mode, which is particularly impressive when used on an AGA-hascd Amiga. With 256 colours and a massive 1,2XO-hy-512 resolution, the screen display makes even QuarkXPress on the Macintosh look somewhat sail!
Most of us at Amiga Formal were expecting ProPage's 256-colour modes to he slow - after all. With X-hil planes of high resolution display to shift around, it would have been excusable il ProPage had slowed down.
Surprisingly, running ProPage in 256-colour mode seems faster than running the previous 16-colour version on a standard Amiga. 1 don't know how Gold Disk have done it. Hut So vliat am you possibly my about this latest release of Deluxe Paint that ham't be*v eaidbe) ££££:££ ‘Post it’ notes

I'm gtizig to nibble Frotewhoial Page 4.( aaed to lay cut die a reading Goodizuut! !
Now folly compatible dap set giving yoi rre".sie of pictatea, uti .. a got aunw ijonderfiil nev teaturea too. For the fix* to edit DPSs (Double Page Spreads). Up until now , this was the one aspect of ProPage that really stopped It from being a useful program for professionals. Although Gold Disk insisted that most professionals don't need 10 work on more than one page at a time, tills isn't the case, and you'd be hard pushed to find a publication that didn't make extensive use of DPSs
- this review is a perfect example.
ProPage 4 seems considerably faster than previous releases. Add to this its ability to display bitmapped graphics in full colour and it seems as if they've produced a DTP program that doesn't look like its running on a PC clone!
The improvements to ProPage 4 aren't just cosmetic though. After AGA support, the most important improvement is ProPage 4 s ability fTp DESKTOP PUBLISHING e to see the iit ill full iir! Isn’t A wonderful!
MAY 1993 Now ihat ProPage 4 can handle DPSs though, its potential has increased immeasurably. Even PageStream can't handle DPSs. So ProPage has not only matched the competition. But il has left il for dead.
There arc also several new layout tools and extra 'niceties' that make ProPage a more enjoyable package to work with. The new font preview option is a welcome addition that enables you lo see a quick preview of any font before committing yourself to it. Font support has been further extended with a new Kerning Pair adjustment facility that enables you lo control and customise the kem settings for letter pairs in any of the Compugraphic fonts installed 011 your system. As more experienced Amiga D I P users w ill know, some characters don't fit together well CA' and V'. For example). So
being able to edit the kem selling of pairs of characters produces neater text.
AGA support isn’t the only new feature of ProPage 4 that first saw the light of day in its little brother. PageSelier 4. PageSelier's fill pattern facility is also supported. This means you can assign user-definable fill patterns (monochrome only. I'm afraid) to any text or structured object. I'm not sure about this feature - after all. Monochrome fill patterns are PACE SORTER aJ ProPage's new Page Sorter comes in real handy when you're working with documents containing more than one single page or a double page spread. What the Fage Sorter does is go through each page within the document
and generate a mini representation (and icon) of the page that can be picked up and moved around, enabling you to arrange the pages within a document with ease.
The painful thing about Compugraphic fonts is that they can be incredibly slow to redraw on an unacclerated Amiga, so ProPage's new Font Preview facility is a welcome addition to the program.
Font Preview enables you to view a given font - so you don't have to put all the text into that font before actually committing yourself to using it.
You can run both illustrations and headlines across two pages - running over the gutter of the page. This is now a standard requirement in modern layout techniques, and you will find many examples in this issue of Amiga Format of how using pictures and headlines across a DPS can enhance design.
There have been considerable enhancements since the previous release, and here's a quick preview of a few of the new features you'll find on offer that now make ProPage 4 - and the Amiga - more than the equal of the DTP big boys... The all-new ProPage... Or facing pages as the ProPage documentation refers to them.
After several years of users (including me!)
Screaming out for this feature, ProPage 4 now enables you to edit a doublepage spread.
This means that nothing more than user definable half tones, so it would be belter simply to assign a grey scale 10 an object or text and let your printer driver handle generating the till pattern for you. Oh well. I'm sure someone will lind a use for it!
One unique new feature is the new 'Stick on notes' (based 011 those Post-It Pads that are so popular these days). Simply by clicking on the 'notes' icon in the tools' icon strip. ProPage automatically creates a small yellow text box that can be positioned anywhere on screen.
Once you've pasted it down by clicking the left mouse button, you can type text into it.
Because stick-on notes arc designed as reminders. ProPage ignores them when your document is output to the printer.
So. Even if your document is covered in notes, only the layout itself is sent lo press.
Until recently, the only way to temporarily mark a section of a layout was to print a proof and write 011 that.
The Page Sorter function allows you to sort pages within a mulliple-page document. For every page within a document. ProPage displays mini representations which can be picked up and arranged to your heart's content. Obviously you need plenty of memory lo take full advantage of this facility.
After all. Page Sorter is best suited to the task of handling entire brochures and booklets.
If you tried holding an entire maga inc in memory at once (especially if it contained 24- bil pictures), you'd end up with documents amounting to tens of megabytes in size (at least!). It would also have been nice if you could print the output from the Page Sorter.
ProPage 4 has broken the mould. With its support for the new AGA chip set and the new facility to edit DPSs. ProPage 4 represents the most major advance in Amiga DTP software since the release of the original ProPage in 14X7. To call it revolutionary would be putting 11 mildly! With its added power, it now demands to be compared with heavyweight packages that dominate the professional DIP market - run ProPage 4 011 an A4(MM) and you've got a DI P sy stem that really is a viable competitor against established systems.
Consider me impressed.
Speed .... The original ProPage ran at an acceptable speed, but version 4 Is considerably faster.
DOCUMENTATION .... Facing Pages aren't explained too well, but the rest is up to Gold Disk's usual standards.
ACCESSIBILITY ..... Using ProPage. Laying out pages has never been so simple) FEATURES ..... You still can't scale text horizontally, otherwise ProPage 4 offers a huge array of features.
VALUE ..... £200 isn't bad value, and you can get it from dealers for a bargain £117.49!

With the release of Kid Pix on the Amiga, though.
EA have come across yet another phenomenal paint program, but this time it's for the kids - well sort of!
Kid Pi was created solely with kids in mind - il was designed by a dad. Craig Hickman, for his three-year-old son Ben.
Apparently Ben used to play with adult' paint programs but ended up in tricky situations, so what was called for was a more kid-friendly application. And Craig has certainly managed to come up w ith that.
Once you've launched your copy of Kid Pix you are presented with a blank screen - and then you're all ready lo start painting awav. There are just three menus at the top of the screen: File. Edit and a special Goodies menu, but all of these menus can be turned off if you opt for 'Small Kids Mode' - which is more or less kid-proof.
Down the left-hand side of the screen arc the tools w ith which to explore the program.
As you click on each tool you are given various different options at the bottom of the screen, these change depending on which tool you click on. The interface is such fun to work with, kids will have no trouble becoming familiar w ith the way the program works, and although Kid Pix comes with a comprehensive manual, you really don't need it - you can just get straight in and play away lo your heart's content, creating everything from fairly simple draw ings, to quite intricate and stunning pieces of w ork - even if you're just five-years-old.
The first tool you’re presented with is the Wacky Pencil (all of the tools have fun-looking icons that represent what the tool docs).
Click on the pencil and the options at the bottom include various line (or a thick circular brush) styles and widths. But it's when you first move the mouse across the screen to draw your first picture that you come across Kid Pix's piece de resistance: sound! Yes of course there have been other children's paint pro- Conventional paintbrushes are so passe, now kids want to draw their pix electronically, and boy has Gary Lord found a childrens paint program for the new generation... If id Pix Kids' paint package ¦ £25.99 ¦ Electronic Arts .... m&m 126 MAY 1993 ¦¦ HI ¦¦¦¦ & grams before, but
none has managed to merge sound with vision as well as this.
Cover all the different noises and samples that are there to be uncovered. Everyone will have their own favourites, I love the stretching noise that the line-drawing tool makes, it matches the drawing move you're making so well, it sounds like a squeaky wooden door opening, as you stretch the line from one side of the screen to another.
It's a great laugh exploring what each tool and its various options do to the pictures on screen, and that alone w ill keep you amazed for hours. But Kid Pix adds another dimension, and you and your children will be eager to disKID PIX is available from Electronic Arts 0753 549442 CLIPPETY CLIP « !
Clip art Is ready-made art. And Kid Pix has gallons of it (look at the bottom menu of this picture - and that's just a small sample). This enables kids who haven't acquired proficient drawing skills yet to have a good play with real pictures - a bit like Fuzzy Felt when we' were young.
If you're not happy with the way the clip art looks, and you want to change the colour of a whale from purple to blue (the proper colour for whales as everyone knows) then just go to the Goodies menu and select Edit Stamp' and double click on the Stamp Icon. You can rotate, flip and recolour, or even create an entirely new stamp If you so desire. The main criticism of Kid Pix, and it would be great if Electronic Arts could rectify this, is that it can't load IFFs.
Seeing as EA invented the darn things, it's a bit of a let down, because you can't import graphics from other Amiga packages, digitised pictures or creations from other paint programs. Apart from this criticism, Kid Pix will keep the young (and old) uns amused until the pigs, chickens, sheep and cows come home.
MUKI »awi II you don't think frogs should be green, then pop this wee fella into the Stamp Editor and pick a colour!
Ctp GRAPHICS FOR KIDS The graphics capabililics haven't been sac- rificed for the sake of sound though. You'll find all that you'd expect from a children's paint package and then sonic! There's a more than adequate colour palette - 16 colours in total - and some wonderful (some would even say quite wacky in facll painting options once you select the Wacky Brush!
My personal favcs arc the Zig Zag line - the pattern is similar to the blip-blip pattern that the machine that goes 'ping' makes; Echoes - circles within circles, very reminiscent of Spirograph sets; Trees - draws your very own fractal forest, and if you hold down Ctrl while you click the mouse button it draws a real mighty oak of a tree; Drippy Paint - while you draw, the 'paint' dribbles down the page; Connecl-thc-Dots - yes you can make your very own dot-lo-dot picture, who needs paper eh?
The only drawback with the Wacky Brush tool, though, is that there are no sounds with it.
The thing is it's probably the one you go to first and so you're initially disappointed - but once you go on to discover the noises in some of the other options, you don't feel at all cheated, but it's certainly something that could be considered for an update.
And here's one that I made earlier... One ol the best graphics features of Kid Pix is the Electric Mixer. This picture has been splattered and affected with some clip art, and the Wacky Pencil and Brush. Then the Broken Class feature has been clicked on, and has shattered the screen display.
Check out the smiley faces, as the display has shattered, It has inversed the colours - a similar effect can be achieved if you click on Night and Day.
If you've just been messing around, and you want to erase your work, just click on one of the erasers, this one is the Firecracker - it blows your picture right off the screen.
You can also choose Fade Away; Drop Out - bits of the picture just drop out until there's nowt left; Count Down - you get a Thunderbirds-style count before your picture slides off the screen; White Circles - which gobble up your drawing!
See the leHer 'Z' in this drawing? Well the whole alphabet has an accompanying soundtrack - in a real Sesame Street-style. And, although it's American, it does say "zed" and not "zee"! The best one for the question it's a cute kid just saying "Huh?" - This started off as a Stu-stu-stu-stu-stu- studio Line drawing by Mondrian, but Kid Pix sculpts your drawing any way you like it! Checker Board literally turns your drawings into checkered patterns.
But it doesn't stop there, the Wallpaper effect then divides the picture into four, and if you click on it again, it divides it into eight!
You can go even further in the manipulation department, if you're not happy then use the Splash, Venetian Blinds, Highlighter or Pattern Maker effects, let the artistic spirit run free!
Once a drawing has been created with any of the drawing tools, and you fancy spicing it up a bil. Then it's time to have a go with the Electric Mixer tool. It's so-named because it will simply mix up your picture in some wacky, weird and even abstract ways. Kids will reap hours of enjoyment trying out all the options available to them. At ihe same time they will discover more and more about the program, and new wavs to manipulate their draw ings - I certainly have! (just have a look at ihe column on the left lo see the effects that can be achieved in seconds).
So when a drawing's finished what then?
Well if your kids are happy with their artistie endeavours they can save their pictures to disk and print them out for posterity. It's all very easy and what you see on screen is what prints out on paper. Obviously a colour printer is preferable, but mono printouts can look pretty good too. The ones in the manual are black- and-white and they look great - though try explaining that to your nagging eight-year-old.
If your budding computer graphic proteges aren't happy with their draw ings then they can simply erase using the 'Erase' tool. Remember what a tedious task rubbing out your drawing was when you were young? Well the present generation won't find this to be the case with Kill Pix - because there are even options for erasing pictures. Firecracker is the most impressive because your screen explodes in Pop Art-style with accompanying sound; or you can go for the Hidden Pictures eraser, it rubs out the drawing but displays, albeit briefly, some of the program's hidden secrets.
127 Electronic Arts say of their latest paint package that "No one's too young, no one's too old." And that's certainly true, everyone in the Amiga Formal office has been huddled around the screen, just wanting another quick play! It’s definitely a great entry-level paint package whatever your age. It may even be better suited for an Amiga bundle than Deluxe Paint is. And what better way to get your young ones interested in the Amiga? If they leam how to use a mouse, recognise icons, print out their drawings and get an artistic slant before they even gel to school age that has got to be A Good

Type Premem ‘TypeSmitf lypeSmith Outline font designer ¦ £
129.95 ¦ Soft-Logik FONT DKSKiN PROGRAMS arc nothing new lo ihc
Amiga. Inn ihe release of Workbench 2 and desktop publishing
programs such as PtixcSlicum have made the Amiga bitmapped
font somewhat redundant.
These days users expect the best possible quality from their DTP documents. Due to this need for 'jaggic free' results, the demand for 'outline' fonts has increased so much that it was inevitable that someone would come up with a font editor lor outline fonts.
MAY 1993 Sofl-Logik's new TypcSmith is a powerful font editor designed specifically for outline fonts. Although heavily geared towards its ow n desktop publishing program, it is possibly the most complete font-related package ever released for the Amiga. Not only can it he used to load, edit and even create outline fonts for use within PageSlieam, but it w ill happily load anil save fonts in Adobe Type I. Type 3 and - best of all - AGFA Compugraphic Intellifont format. TypcSmitli is compatible wilh the Intellifont formats used by Gold Disk's PinPagc. PiigcSetter. ProDraw S and even Workbench
versions 2 and 3. In fact its font-conversion capabilities are so extensive that they make Gold Disk's Font Manager' look rather sad!
Off though if you know how to draw an outline using DpuinTs Line' and 'Curve' tools, you've already mastered the basic skills required to create your own font.
Creating an outline font is surprisingly simple. Before you can start designing individual characters, though, you need lo feed in a number of important details about your font including its name, style, weight and font ID number. You then need lo create a 'metric' file that w ill keep track of the font's kerning information (how characters lit together) and dimensions. This sort of low-level font control is one aspect that really makes the program shine - if you're used to the sort of limited control that bitmapped font editors offer (the Workbench Fed, for example), the power of
TypcSmitli is going lo come as something of a shiKk to you!
One inspired feature is its template' facility that allows vou to manually trace an outline I sing TypcSmitli purely as a font conversion tool would Ik doing it no justice at all though.
Its real power comes from its ability to edit and create new typefaces using a selection of tools that wouldn't look out of place in a structured drawing program. Indeed by the very nature of outline fonts, the program is very similar to a structurcd-drawing program. Bach and every character w iihin a font must be created separately using a combination of points, lines and be .ier curves. Don't let this pul you Designing your own outline fonts is an interesting prospect. Jason Holborn enjoys a character-forming experience with Soft-Logik's new font designer.
Font from a bitmapped font. You really do need Workbench 2 or 3 to get Ihe very best from this facility though, simply because it needs to be able lo scale the bitmapped font to a more usable size (this isn't available under Workbench 1.3). It would also have been better to have had some form of auto-trace facility (similar to Art Expression's BMK Trace utility I lor tracing bitmapped fonts.
Although admittedly you would still have had lo clean up the font, this would still have offered a huge lime saving. Ah well, let's just hope that Soft-Logik are reading this... Once you've designed your font, a quick click on the Font Preview ' option is all that is needed to test the font. Tilts is by far one of the most useful features offered because it allows you to test the kern and w idth settings of your font. If characters don't fit together properly. You can change their w idlh and kerning w ithin seconds.
It's nice to see that Soft-Logik are keeping up with developments in the Amiga's operating system too - TypcSmitli is fully AGA compatible and can even be set up to run in a other languages thanks to Workbench 2.1 3.0's 'Locale' feature. Where interface design is concerned. Solt-l ogik are really on the ball!
Judging a product such as this is very difficult. Simply because it's the first program of its type on the Amiga. I have no doubt that competitors will eventually appear, hut they 're going to have to be damned special to top this one. It's well designed, easy to use and offers the son of extensive list of features that virtually spoil its users. With products such as PiixcSiictini 2.2. An Expression anil TypcSmith under their belt. Soft-Logik really are shaping up into a very major player w ithin the Amiga marketplace. For DTP users every where, it's a must. 'Zi TypcSmith SPEED • • • •
Soft-Logik recommend an accelerated Amiga, but it is rapid even on an A600.
DOCUMENTATION • • • • • The manual covers every aspect of the program and font technology in great detail.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • Makes what is usually a complicated subject moreorless child s play!
FEATURES • • • • • Whether you need to convert fonts or create your own. No other package even comes close.
VALUE • • • £130 is a lot of money to pay for a font designer, but If you buy cheap you buy twice!

• fV have kids themselves) rather than kids. Of course, if you
put a console in front of kids and load a copy of Zool or
Janies Pond the kids will play them, but they do get pretty
bored once they've cracked the game.
And have you noticed any improvement in their academic work as a result of knowing the steps that have to be taken to beat the cnd-of-level baddie?
134 Patricia Winstanley puts her kids to work on some excellent text and graphics-based games that teach the three 'Rs', and keeps their interest as well... Coombe Valley educati softwa Educational ¦ £ 14.99 each Coombe Valley ¦ 0626 779695 THF, I.AST FEW years have seen a trend towards cute characters and arcade-stylc action in educational programs. This is a great shame because so much educational value is being lost in the search for user-friendly (or more to the point, supposedly child friendly) attraction. The trouble is the term ‘child friendly' is being defined by adults (who often
don't Go to any primary school today and watch the kids on the computer. The chances are they will be grappling with some sort of text-based program, be it a database or a game. The schools have it right here.
Most kids prefer the challenge of dealing with real reading and writing, while still having fun wilh the mathematical challenges.
(7-10) This one is intended for kids who still need to be able to see graphic representation of fractions rather than numerical problems. For instance it might show a picture of 10 differently coloured cakes and ask what fraction of them arc green. It also points out when the child answers something like 'five tenths' that the result could be reduced and expressed as 'one half.
The basis of this game is to find the pieces of a puzzle and collect them all one at a time. There arc an awful lot of questions around to remove the child's hard-eamcd gains en route.
(8-13 plus) If your children are any good at fractions, and I certainly was never any good at them myself, then do not attempt to play this game with them! At least not if you value your own sanity and authority over them
- my kids left me way behind!
The task is to find the scattered contents of your pencil-case, and heaven help you if you meet a rather large, unfriendly goblin along the way. Do you know what the answer lo one and seven twelfths minus one tenth is? Neither do I. It's a great game though, and you can try it out because there's a demo on this month's Coverdisk.
(8-13) I was somewhat disappointed with this game.
Having played and enjoyed il on the Atari ST. I've found the Amiga version full of rather sloppy programming. Which is a shame because there really is an excellent game underneath.
The basic story is that you meet a young, hungry. Wee dragon who has carelessly gone and lost his lunchbox and needs you lo guide him home back to his cave. In order to do so you need to collect objects and give them to the correct guardians of passage.
Adults will enjoy the humour and puns, but kids might be left out in the cold.
Ferdic! 85% ferdic! 79% htas" fTj EDUCATION One of Ihc most popular formats for educational P games in schools is the text or text graphics advcn- ture. Even the hardened joystick jockey enjoys having to think and work a bit sometimes - like the refreshing change between playing Scrabble and Ludol Coombc Valley Software arc headed by a teacher and it shows. My own (mid-junior) kids have access to a wide range of educational softw are at home, covering all styles. Yet the game they keep coming back to is Maths Orations. Why? Because they positively enjoy the challenge of combining the three
Rs'.
The text graphic adventure format has been buried over the past few years in favour of more visual adventure games. Yet it offers an ideal vehicle for presenting all sorts of educational challenges at the same time as giving practice in reading, writing and spelling. It doesn't matter what the subject of the game is. Be it geography, science, maths or history, the child still needs to be able to read, write, and more importantly spell in order to understand instructions given, and instruct the computer back in return.
For those new to computers who have never seen a text or text graphics game, this is how they work.
Imagine you have been dumped somewhere unfamiliar with a portable phone modem and keyboard. Someone on the other end of the phone can see what you arc doing and where you are. They can tell you about your surroundings and can point out which directions to take to move out of your present location.
So they might say something like... "You are in a clearing in a forest. Try walking towards the oak tree. A rope is dangling, so climb the tree to investigate. There are possible exits east, south and north."
You type something like 'climb tree'. Then your new location is described... "Nestling in a hollow of the branches is a small box w ith a golden lock. It might be possible lo open if you can find the key. " You then have to find the key to find the next exit.
The Coombc Valley games work in this way. So while playing them kids have to read instructions and descriptions. And then type in commands to progress. The Aaoaargh! The adult dragon insists you answer a question correctly before proceeding.
Beauty of typing in the replies is that they don't realise they're learning keyboard skills at the same time as playing the games.
Although younger kids need a good deal of help in these games, older ones tell you to "get lost" if you try to help. Most of the games have user-selectable difficulty levels so they can be adjusted to the skills of the player. Try some of these games - they're inexpensive and excellent value, and aid reading, writing, spelling, maths, logic and social skills!
135 One of the mazes that hos to be fathomed in Coombe Volley's Cave Maze.
MATHS DRAGONS 5-121 You have gone to visit your young dragon friends.
Unfortunately the train set that you took with you has been found dismantled, and the pieces arc scattered all across the cave complex by baby dragons.
Your task is to try and collect all the train's pieces and rebuild the set.
Trouble is. The adult dragons in the complex are very keen on making sure that academic standards arc kept up. If they come across you they will ask you questions on arithmetic, and if you get the answer wrong it will relieve you of your treasures and make you find them all over again.
REASONING WITH TROLLS (3-1 2) If your kids like puns then this is for them. It's based on ihc story of the Billy Goats Gruff, but instead of one bridge to cross there are lots of them, each with a different troll.
Each troll needs an object to let you past, the specific object identifiable by a pun on the troll's name. If you don't have the object, or don't know what to offer you arc instead presented with a logic problem lo solve. The problems are varied and interesting - the sort of questions seen in intelligence tests, and it gives kids a good opportunity to learn problem-solving techniques.
TIDY THE HOUSE MAY 1993 «»-*) Popular this one. For the first-time adventurer this game offers a useful introduction. As you may have guessed the game's set in a house, and the player has to find their younger siblings' clothes, and dress them for the park, while also tidying up and putting away scattered toys.
While this game is indeed enjoyable, my testers found it terribly frustrating to map because doors didn't always lead back to precisely where they came front. This is the only drawback, though, in what is an otherwise excellent game. But will it encourage kids lo keep their rooms tidy?

ITTTCTTTTtTT rrTt m NFIA I ATE NIGHT SHOWROOM OPENING UNTII 7PM XA FTiNFSnAY TO FDIHAY Brian Larkman finds Real 3D now has added realism, especially around the blurry bits'. He tries out the soft shadows and motion blur in... l?eal3D version 3D modelling and Rendering ¦ £400 RealSoft Activa An excellent impression of motion hos been creoted in this imoge by the use ol variable motion blur being applied to the different Bowling Pins and the Bowling Ball. This is a reworking of a classic of 3D computer graphics, the original was created on Pixar’s Renderman system. The Amiga is fost catching up
with professional graphics workstations, which cost much more money, and software like Real 3D 2 is helping to close the gap.
• o OJ IT IS AN irony of computer graphics that however much
detail and precision you put into a model (an object in a 3D
picture), it is still the blurry hits’ that give it that
realistic look. Look around you. As well as the fine detail
objects’ edges have, almost every' shadow also has a soft edge.
Similarly, only the objects that you arc actually focussed on
are sharp, those further away or closer, or on the periphery of
vision, are blurred. When things start to move, the blur
becomes much more pronounced - though we rarely notice it.
To create a ’real’ view of the world, this blurred effect needs to be simulated. The latest version ol Real M) can now claim to live up to its name because it provides all these ’blurry’ features and much more, without losing the underlying character of the system.
There are so many new features in this second version that here we can only give you a flavour of the changes, concentrating first 011 the interface and working methods, then 011 the end product - the images, and what makes them so different.
The unique thing about the new interface is that it can be stylised to your personal taste.
Three sorts of standard, resizable, floating Amiga window are provided: View . Tool and Select. View windows arc of the working space within which objects are modelled, lit and rendered. Tool windows can contain groups of tools according to need.
Select w indows provide a hierarchical list of objects, effects and materials. These are all familiar to users of earlier versions. The difference is that as many, or as few of each of these types can be opened, customised and positioned as you need them, making the new Real almost as versatile as Lego.
Why it’s so versatile is that two or three Tool windows can be opened, each w ith a different set of tools - perhaps Visibles in one.
Lights in another, and Freeform tools in a third. Nine tool sets are provided which can be combined mis ’n’ match style and supple- REAL 3D version 2 mented w ith custom tools of your own design is available from based on a macro or the Real Programing Alternative Image Language RPL) provided w till the system. 0533 440041 Even the Select window can be opened several times displaying different parts of the hierarchy, allowing sections to be compared, modified or cut and pasted.
It is the View windows that are the most remarkable though. Initially the regular Front.
Side and Plan views can be set up easily making the traditional tri-view interface. Any of these views can be flipped to any other regular
X. Y. or Z viewpoint or rotated to a custom perspective view, so
for many jobs a single- view w indow is enough.
Alternatively six or even nine view s can be provided at any size, viewing any pan of the model at any degree of zoom, like surveillance cameras in a superstore. Rotating the viewpoint is similar to the control system of the wire-frame module in earlier versions of ReatiD. But it has been combined w ith the old Editor module in each of the new View windows. Any View window can also be rendered at any available resolution or render type - Outline. Lampless. Shadowless. Normal - so the old Solid ’rendering’ module has been combined as well. This remarkable integrated interface has one more
surprise in store - Asynchronous action. In other words each w indow can operate separately and multitask, allow ing one view w indow 10 render an image while another is being used to modify the model or design a new material.
This all seems too good to be tme. I11 practice, some actions seem to interrupt the rendering, so the system is perhaps not quite perfect. As always, the more memory and speed you have the better it is for smooth action. The prerelease version reviewed is complete, but it only has a 400-page Rcad-Me file for a manual. So I haven’t read it in full yet. That said, the manual looks like being superb on the production version - a good introduction, plenty of reference material and a huge number of tutorials - looks like the perfect balance. Even using the Read-Me version it is easy to set up
and use the software for most operations.
Modelling w ith Rea! 3D has always been a unique experience, a bit like driving a French Stj 3D GRAPHICS Is it real or is it 3D?
MAY 1993 I car. And like ihe French, the Meskanen brothers (the programmers of RealJOI have always taken an independent approach to the processes they are dealing with. In doing so they have derived many of the tools and methods themselves, and have reinvented ray-tracing on the wav.
Initially, all of the tools were designed lor solid modelling (using Boolean 'cutting' operations to give real-world construction processes). Letter versions have added FreeForm objects and point editing lo give a more organic appearance to the models, and Compound tools to automatically link several solid primitives into more complex objects still a totally unique approach to construction.
The latest version has many more compound tool types, plus Uniform Cubic beta-Spline surfaces to give really smooth results when rendering organic objects, (Though they can be a bit slow, the improvement over Phong Shaded faceted objects is well worth the time penalty). These objects are defined bv a series of Bezier curves, so the TEXTURE MAPPING (FREEDOM) No blur or soft shadows here - but still a pretty dramatic picture with lots ot texture and bump mapping. The floor is a procedural map - using a mathematically evolved pattern.
The walls are bump mapped.
ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS (MOON) The glow in the atmosphere ot the planet shown here is the result of using a solid modelled turbid material with a Local Scope value.
This gives a variable blend of the materials used, depending on the amount of light passing through. It sounds complicated, but buy Real3D and you'll understand exactly what I mean.
SMOOTH e SHADOWS When you first look at this it looks more like a photo than a render picture.
The softening of the focus at the back of the board and along the pencil, (depth of field effect) the smooth edges of the shadows and the motion blur on the 'flying' dice are all so well integrated that it is hard to fault. The quality of the transparent dice is also excellent - the light passing through it is distorted convincingly because It is a solid object - try doing that in Caligari!
FRACTALS (SUNSET) Real 3D 2 offers two sorts of fractal objects - trees and landscapes - both shown in this picture. Tree fractals are built up from standard solid primitives - these are another form of compound object. As shown here, and with considerable practice (no mention in the disk manual), they are still difficult to try and get them to look right. Maybe with more work and better instructions it would be possible to get them to appear better.
An importnnl purl of model construction is (he application of material qualities (o an object. As well as the large range of surface- mapping methods that RctilJI) has always offered, version ’.() now provides procedural textures. These replace the usual bitmap 'textures', (used lo determine colour and bump height) wuh mathematical models, allowing an infinite range of surface effects.
To make applying material to objects simpler. Textures are now shown in the Select window hierarchy' and apply to all objects at their level, so they can be duplicated, moved and used 011 other objects easily. The only real criticism is that it would be nice to have some form ol material preview, perhaps in the form of a wrapped sphere for each material. Mind you. The rendering is usually so last that most objects can be rendered for real as a prev iew !
To see' these materials and textures it is necessary lo add some form of light source.
Re ill Jl * now offers linear and wall lights as well as points. As light from these sources comes from more than one point, shadows can have a variable intensity, especially along their edges where it drops off gradually. In most cases this will give you the soft-edged shadows that almost every object in the real world casts. The arrival of this feature has done more than anything else to make the images of Re.il.ll) really REAL.
However good the interface, modelling and material tools of a 3D system are. It is the quality of the images that really matters and RealJO 2 has come up with the goods this time. A picture speaks a 1.000 words, so I'll shut up and let you appreciate the images here.
New versions ot Culixari. Imagine and Otate-IOl’ra (now called AllaJin) are all due for release and review soon, hut they will have to he very good to come close to Real JO.
SPEED •••• Slows down when you have lots of views or if you have a lot of blurry effects.
DOCUMENTATION •••• Good Introduction, plenty of reference and a hugo number of tutorials.
ACCESSIBILITY §••• Menus, icons, windows. Totally configurable.
Very accessible if you've used earlier versions.
FEATURES • • • • • Better than the rest and I'll still be finding new featuros at Christmas!
VALUE • • • • Reasonable for a system aimed at professionals RRP C400 but should be available for less.

MAIL & TELEPHONE ORDERS ONLY.... NO PERSONAL CALLERS PLEASE MUSIC SEQUENCER Bars and Pipes Professional vz.O MIDI Sequencer ¦ £299.99 ¦ Blue Ribbon Soundworks bit digital recording cards and the new 16-bit One-Stop Music Shop card from Blue Ribbon itself may be sequenced from within Ihe program without using any MIDI channels - indeed, the cards have MIDI interfaces built- in. So a combination of these cards can give you loads of available MIDI channels.
Other supported applications include the sewn to be released G-Lock genlock and the IV-24 24-bit video card from GVP. Scala multimedia presentations and standard Amiga ANIM animation files. Also, the automatic- mixing utility is compatible with virtually every hardware auto mixer on the market.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of version 2 is Media Madness, which enables you to sync together applications to create a graphics and sound performance. Although we couldn't test G-Lock and IV-24 with the program. It runs Scala and ANIM files very well.
Each application, such as an animation, a Scala presentation, or a graphic wipe is assigned a separate track of a special media sequence, and then to arrange them you add in the required notes on to the roll. A testament to the quality of this area of Bars and Pipes is that it was used on the promo videos for the LA and Atlanta Olympics, and The Batman Returns soundtrack was written using it. Plus Paula Abdul and Evelyn Glennie swear by it.
Bars and Pipes Pro 2 is undoubtedly a powerful piece of software. In terms of MIDI sequencing, it uses an unusual system of inputting music information, so for the seasoned musician it's not as straightforward as say Music-X. On the plus side, the interface docs become logical after using it for a short time, so beginners should find it easy to use.
Also, if you find that you haven't got room on the screen to fit all Ihe windows you need, you can set a 'virtual' screen up to four times the normal size, and scroll around it using the mouse. This means you can put the track window in the top left, the mixer on the bottom right, the time code window somewhere else, and not overlap any windows.
Add to this its huge range of tools such as Media Madness and its compatibility with the high-end software and hardware mentioned earlier, and suddenly you have a studio engineer and video editor’s dream.
Bars and Pipes Pro is a lot of money, but it’s big. It's powerful, and it gives all other sequencers, on all other machines, a run for their money. Excellent. O BARS & PIPfS PRO is avaflabio from Mrridan 081-543 3500 143 MAY 1993 The different windows may be arranged as you wish, as may the (olours if they're not to your taste.
The big window here is the automatic mixer, which follows your MIDI control messages as your track plays.

W 90% The Blue Ribbon Soundworks' MorlcBars&Pipes Professional Exanple Songs Thingy.song colourful MIDI sequencer is back with a host of additional features.
Andy Nuttall faces the changes... IF YOU’RE USED to sequencers, where you simply create separate tracks of music by entering notes on to a musical stave or a 'piano roll'-type display, and then sequence the tracks together to make a song, then liars and Pipes Pm will seem unusual to you.
When you load the program, the screen is made up of 16 bars, each corresponding to a single sequence. To enter notes, double-click on the required bar. And a window opens w ith a magnified version of the bar inside, so you can enter notes cither using your mouse or via a MIDI input. With me so far?
On either side of a bar you will notice a pipe. This is because Blue Ribbon liken music sequences to water pipes, with musical notes flowing' from the MIDI keyboard, through the first pipe, and then recorded into the main musical bar in the middle. On playback, the notes in the bar actually flow ' out through the second pipe on the right, and out to external MIDI equipment.
So why have the pipes? Well, a number of tools may be inserted into the pipes which affect the musical data as it passes through.
For instance. Ihe Echo tool can be added to give a reverb effect to the music: or an Arpeggiate tool can be added to automatically add an arpeggio effect to your sequence. The settings for the tools may be altered simply by double-clicking on their icon, so they are extremely flexible.
Blue Ribbon are continually revising Bars and Pipes, and releasing updates, but this version is a complete rewrite of the original. The frontend looks identical to version 1. But there are loads of new features which make it into more than just another MIDI sequencer.
It's worth mentioning that the program will not sequence internal Amiga samples as standard. It's MIDI-only, but you can integrate samples using a patch called the Internal Sound Kit, bought separately for £29.99. The operation of version two is similar to the original. Most of the new features are involved with controlling other software and hardware. Big names such as the SunRize 16- Hork:l)irsiPI| n Prof»sitorul Ex»ple Son9s Thinqv¦ tonq DOS LAB £ 19 99 ¦ Disk tutorial ¦ George Thompson Can you learn the basics of working with your Amiga by just booting from a disk?
Richard Baguley takes a refresher course with a new disk-based tutorial... DOS LAB is available from George Thompson Services 0707 391 389 IT'S A PRETTY ambitious thing, trying to teach a beginner all of the basics of using the Shell and CLI. But this is exactly what these disks aim to do. This three-disk set contains two versions of the tutorial, one designed for Workbench 1.3 and the other for Workbench 2 and 3 on the A600 and A121X1. Each tutorial is is divided into several chapters, with each one covering a different subject, such as the list command or the intricacies of passing parame
ters to scripts. The idea is that you read the tutorial in the top two thirds of the screen, and practice the new commands in the Shell which runs in the bottom third.
Inn IntallH kv iwMviit* (•TRtk ik* nw *n imm Unfortunately, booting from either version doesn't take you straight into the tutorial, but into the Workbench. So. In order to start the tutorial off. You need to open up a couple of drawers and double click on the icon, which for a disk that's supposed to be teaching the basics, seems to be rather a serious omission.
You also have to start off the Shell yourself. It would have been easier though, to stick this in the startup sequence. These disks are designed to teach you about the Shell and not Workbench, but even so it's rather a bad start.
After all. If you are try ing to make these nasty, uncommunicative things called computers easier for a novice to understand and get to grips w ith, then you should try and make the tutorials themselves as easy as possible to start off by automating the procedure. Despite this initial hiccup, though, the tutorials are pretty good. The chapters are organised in a sequence that makes it easy to run through them, or just skip to a particular subject if that's what you're looking for. Much of the text has been distilled from the 'problem pages’ of the Jumpdisk disk ine. So it's all phrased
in language that doesn't blind you with tcchnospcak.
After running through a couple of the chapters I have learned several new things, and the text is written in a good down-to- earth style. It's a great idea, but it's rather let down by the presentation. It also seems rather expensive, especially when you look at the price of a decent book tutorial, like the ones below. It's not the sort of thing that you'd use for a long time, and it's much easier to Hick through a reference manual if you're looking for information on a particular command or topic. It's a great idea, but unfortunately the way it's done lets it down. 'If DOS LAB 144 I llnti f
Stniih If you're looking for a guide to the A1200, A600, Workbench and AmigaDOS, then Richard Baguley has the answer... MAY 1993 miga LI 200 INSIDER GUIDES are available from Brute Smith Books 0923 894355 Here's the Insider Guide for the A600 - there's also one for the HD version and the A1200.
Insider Guides £ 14 95 ¦ Reference guides ¦ Bruce Smith THESE TWO BOOKS arc obviously aimed at the new AI2(X) A6(X) owner, or ihe beginner who's interested in learning the basics of Workbench on both the A6IKI and A12 X .
They're written by Bruce Smith, who's written and co-written several other books on the Amiga, including the excellent Mastering AmigaDOS 2. He’s noted for his easy-to- understand style, and these two books arc certainly no exception. They both start with ihe basics of computing (questions like 'What is a floppy disk?' 'How do I format a disk?') and work through Ihe various aspects of working with Amigas. Leading on lo more complex subjects like scripts, printing and working with hard disks later. Both hooks include an excellent chapter which gives the real facts about computer viruses,
and strips away some of the fallacies commonly held by newcomers.
All of the chapters have plenty of examples and tutorials, which tire written in a way that makes it easy to read and remember.
Plenty of screen grabs are included, so the reader can sec exactly what's being discussed in ihe text. There's also a good index, which is invaluable when you're looking for a specific command or subject.
The A1200 version of this book is more or less the same as the AWXI version, but with a few sections rewritten and the screen grabs updated lo take into account the (mostly cosmetic) changes with Workbench 3. Slightly more about the new AGA modes would be appreciated. Neither does it make any reference to using a hard disk with an A1200. But because these have only recently become available in either prc-fitted or kit form, this is no real surprise.
These hrxiks are well written, and Bruce Smith has a style which makes even complex subjects seem relatively simple and easy to understand, even if he does have a rather curious sense of humour.
The book is easy to read, and the layout makes it easy to understand, with commonly used tips or procedures put in separate boxes on a page, making them easy to find. At LI4.95 they may seem rather expensive for a paperback if you've not bought this type of . Book before, but it's a fairly typical price for a computer book. If you're a beginner or a newcomer to Amigas, these two books provide an excellent way of finding your way around your new machine.

If any. 00 you 1 Vista Pr Fractal generator ¦ DMI PLC ¦ £69 95 Vista Pro3 in action.
Do we love it? My oh my, river deep, mountain high.
A new releose of Vista it always welcome in the Amiga Formal offices, and Vista Pro 3 is no exception. The ability to render to HAM8 format is truly wonderful, because previously you had to own on expensive 24- bit frame buffer cord to see the landscapes in their true glory.
Now any A1200 or 4000 owner with a hard drive and loads of RAM can see them.
This latest version comes with a variety of data files, giving you the opportunity lo make fractal models of various parts of the United States, as well as parts of central Europe and the Olympus Mons mountain on Mars. All of these are based around mountains and oilier major geographical features. After all what's the point in generating a landscape that's flat? Various other data disks covering most of the tall, lumpy and interesting bits of ihe USA are also available.
This version of ista Pro will work with Workbench 2 or greater only. So. If you're slill using Workbench 1.3. ihis could be a good excuse for finally gelling that upgrade you've been promising yourself for the past few months. Il is also very greedy for memory, so you'll need at least 4Mb of free memory, or (Alb if you're planning on using the new high resolution AGA modes. If you're creating images bigger than the screen for inclusion into documents, or using the huge landscape MAY 1993 VISTA PRO 3 is available from DMI PLC 0753 686000 THE SUN RISES slowly over a far away mountain,
illuminating a dense oak forest and the gently lapping waters of a crystal-clear river. Clouds occasionally litter the sky. And the sun glistens off Ihe snow-capped mountain peaks in the distance... As you may have guessed, this is the ness version of ista Pro. Way back in the good old days 04F35) we reviewed Visia Pro 2. And awarded it 92 per cent and an Amiga formal Gold, Those of you with even better memories may remember that we gave away Vista (the non-pro version) on the Coverdisk of Issue 33.
To the general acclaim of the masses. If you weren't among them, copies of this arc still available on Page I5S.
If you're one of the unenlightened who has never come across Vista before, it’s a fractal landscape generator. It lakes a file filled with data describing points on a map. And produces images from this using fractal mathematics.
The data can either be from a real map obtained from data produced by the US Geological Survey I. or one generated by the program by fractal means from a random number. Applying some weinl fractal maths lo this data produces an image that looks like the real world, except you're in control of the lighting, colours, vegetation, buildings, etcetera.
Feeling a bit lost? Not happy with your world? Why not build your own, and generate landscapes until the cows come home with Richard Baguley and... DID YOU WANT SNOW-CAPPED MOUNTAINS SIR?
LANDSCAPE NAME: usually the geographical area of the landscape.
LANDSCAPE MAP: colour indicates the altitude. Green is the lowest, white the highest. Colour also determines the vegetation used.
GENERAL FUNCTIONS: where to place clouds, trees, roads and buildings. Numerous options tor adding rivers, lakes and starry skies are also controlled trom here.
(Tp FRACTAL GRAPHICS files, you'll need even more. This is the first program lhal I've ever used that's complained about the lack of chip RAM on an A 12(H). It can he run from a floppy disk. But. Frankly. I wouldn't recommend it. However. I don't think there will be many people out there running Antigas that have 4Mb of memory and no hard disk.
The main new feature of version 3 is the support for the new AGA chip set. Using these new modes, it's possible to gel images that are very close in quality to 24 bit. As you can sec from the HAM-8. L024-by-512 pixels image above. However, you don't get something for nothing in this cruel world of ours, as images in the new modes take significantly longer to render, especially the higher resolution modes.
Fortunately, the new- HAM-8 modes are not as prone to fringes as ordinary HAM images often are. As far as rendering the images goes, it does seem faster than previous versions. Also included is a wire-frame view option for looking at the landscape from the camera's point of view. But because there's no hidden line removal, this isn't really of any practical use. You'd be better off doing a quick render to judge w hat the final image is likely to look like.
There's now a good selection of new objects which can he scattered around, including roads which can run across the verdant pastures of your landscape. These aren’t overly visually exciting, but they could be useful for adding realism. Unlike earlier versions, it's also possible to place each tree and building Life beyond Mars... There comes a time when you gel bored with generating landscapes of Mars, and you crave a whole new world to look at. Included in the Vista Pro 3 package is a program which allows you to reach out into the wild and strange realms of higher mathematics. This
program generates map files using a rather curious mathematical phenomenon called Lyapunov space. I won't explain this here (as all us journalists tend to say when they don't understand something themselves), but suffice to say that it's something to do with fractals, and generates very weird-looking landscapes which can be saved out as .DEM files, for loading into Vista Pro 3.
The Lyapunov-to-DEM converter in action. I hereby name this mountain Mount Weird Lyapunov.
And here we see the gentle slopes of Mount Weird Lyapunov, sparsely populated by cactuses.
CREATING YOUR OWN WORLD If you're not happy with either the map files that come with Vista Pro or the random landscapes generated with It, then you can generate your own map. You can either do this by drawing the map in a program such as Dpaint IV and importing It as a colour map or by using the add-on program TerraForm. This enables you to edit the files containing the map data (which all end with the suffix .DMS ) or create your own completely from scratch.
You can even Include buildings or Stonehenge-llke structures. It was reviewed In AF35, and we’re currently waiting for a new version to be released. Once it hits the (Vista generated) streets, we'll give you the full lowdown on it.
Individually, if you require this amouni of realism. On ihe subject of trees, this version now supports 3D ones, with four types (oak.
Pine, palm and cactus). Previous versions of Vi.ua only drew these in two dimensions, leading to fiat and scrawny looking trees. In version 3 trees are drawn in three dimensions, and look pretty real. This adds greatly to the realism, but there's a big penalty to be paid in terms of time, especially if you set the trees to draw in high detail. There don't seem lo have been any profound improvements in Ihe processing speed of the program, with simple renders taking only a lew seconds and complex ones still taking several hours.
There's still no support for producing normal animation files, but there is provision to ran external commands after generating an image, so you could probably set it up to use a program like ANIMBUILD to do it for you.
You can use the proprietory VANIM format, but because it's not supported by anybody else, it's of limited use. However, it does have the advantage of not being limited by the si e of memory, because each frame is loaded from the hard disk before it's displayed. So. If you had a 2 gigabyte drive, you could have a 2 gigabyte animation.
There hav e been no great leap forwards w ith this version of Vista Pro. There are several improvements, and a few new bits, but there's no sense in going forward, if all you're doing is keeping up with the capabilities of the Amiga. However, it's still the best landscape generator around, and it still has the edge over Scenery Animator for creating still images.
147 However, the lack of any proper animation facilities is a pain, and Vista may be losing adherents due to this. The VANIM format works and is relatively fast, but it's a dead-end. Because you can't import the files into any other programs.
MAY 1993 Despite this, it still deserves an Amiga Formai Gold. With the power of the Vista Pro program, and the stunning quality of the new AGA modes, it's not difficult lo produce images of a quality indistinguishable from those viewed on 24-hit graphics devices. Alter all. This is w hat virtual reality is all about... O Vista Pro 3 SPEED • • • • It takes up a lot ot power and the images tako time to render, but it's tolerably fast.
DOCUMENTATION • • • • The main manual is easy to use. And there's a separate tutorial and script manuals.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • Incredibly oasy to use. And the images look impressive too!
FEATURES • • • • Trees, buildings, roads, stars - what more could you want In your world?
VALUE • • • • • At Its now low price. Vista Pro Is the clear leader In the landscape generator race.

YORKS BD14 6SJ TEL: 0274 880066, 0831 635950 The latest
version (2.27) of this excellent virus killer recognises over
600 file and bootblock viruses, as well as a large number of
anti-virus boolblocks. This disk is designed to work with
Workbench 2 and 3. And 1.3 users will need to move a couple of
libraries for it to work, but this is explained in the
documents.
Once booted up. It runs in the background and keeps an eye on the system. Every disk inserted is scanned for anything unusual, and you're notified if it spots a virus. There's also a Bootblock Lab. Which allows you to examine and edit boolblocks. If that's your idea of a good time.
VIRUSZ ANGUA U4030 Beneath a huge pile of free software, Richard Baguley is sifting the good from the bad and the ugly. Saddle-up and don't spill spaghetti on your shirt. Here's a selection that shoot from the hip... highly configurable directory-scanning utility. This with the basics (printing 'hello world'), and then disk will appeal to demo coders and those with an moves on to creating system functions such as a quick interest in the dark, dingy depths of their machine, but directory reader.

This is a collection of various utilities gathered together by Pazza of the demo team LSD. Programs include PostSIM, which helps capture crashes, and Rend24. An image-conversion program which can convert groups of files unattended. Other delights include Veu i.cr. a clone of the Unix utility IS. Which is a not to most users.

If this lot mokes sense to you, then you’re a better man (or woman) than I. E is a procedural higher programming language - whatever that means. It's influenced by C and is simi

2. 04 includes as E modules and that only one program is
necessary for creating standalone programs.
It's still a pretty young language, but it has been well received by various programmer types. As well as the compiler, the disk contains a number of examples and a series of tutorials. This is pretty short, and starts EDUCATION RACK 2 ANGUA ED2 161 MAY 1993 Ahsig WoH

Several programs which don't seem lo have an awful lot to do w ith education (like a fractal cloud generator and a Workbench pattern program) are also included, but it's an interesting collection, especially for geography students.
Continued on Page 164 BOMB JACKY SOFTWARE EXPRESSIONS G252 This Is a platform game, bearing more than a passing resemblance to (surprise, surprise) Bomb ack on the C64. I do believe we're getting slightly nostalgic around here, you know. Despite its somewhat questionable heritage, it Is a good game. The usual sort of platform thing: wandering around the screen, collecting all the bombs within the time limit while avoiding the green blobs, snails and other weirdies that bounce around. Occasional bonuses for freezing and slowing down monsters drop down the screen, just begging to be caught.
It's got a good acidic soundtrack, and a genuine C64 feel to It. If you're a nostalgic old thing like me. This could be for you. Eee, I remember when I was young, games were real games.

C.EASNG J' 1 PD GAMES & UTILITIES fT~ DART MACHINE 17 BIT 2377
If you're a keen darts player, and In particular, one who is
not too keen on mental arithmetic, then this one could be
useful to you.
This is an Amiga version of those machines you see in pubs that help you keep score. As the author, Tim Blacklock, puts It, "Fed up with losing count as you try and take 129 from 501? The Dari Machine is the answer!" Well, he would, wouldn't he. It not only keeps the score counting down from 501, but it also calculates averages and keeps your best scores.
If you register it with the author, he'll send you version two, which includes several new options including the facility to save and print out your greatest games. The disk also contains the sliding block game Yawn!, which is pretty bog standard, except that you can have the blocks marked in European. Arabic or Hindi script. Is this the first multi-ethnic PD game?
164 Here's a new disk mag. That originates from the depths of Norway. It's a totally text-based magazine, but it has an incredibly nice user interface and some good intro graphics. It's concerned mainly w ith the Demo scene, and the various coders and others associated with it.
All of the stories are written in English, and there are several interesting articles, one in particular about a recent clampdown by the Norwegian police on pirate Bulletin Boards. It's well worth a look if you're interested in finding out who the people behind all of those scrolly messages in demos are.
WORDFINDER VIRUS FREE UCENSEWARE CLU 8 Wordfinder Plus is a useful tool for crossword freaks.
You can search for word patterns, or for anagrams. It's pretty quick, but with it only having a database of
46. 319 words, you may miss out on some of the more obscure ones.
THE VIKING SAGA DEJA WJ LIC EN SEW ARE 1 127 This is the first Workbench 2 or 3-only game that I've seen, but I'm sure it won't be the last. Morgan Antonsson has cloned the old C64 game Balderdash.
And added a distinct Norse influence. You play the Norse god of light (Balder) in his quest to recover all of the rings. It includes 40 levels and a level editor, so you can set up your own. There are numerous objects lying around, and the game moves rather quickly. This is definitely reminiscent of the C64.
TOPIK 36 PDSOFT V585 This disk could be extremely useful for anyone who's into modems and Bulletin Boards, or wants to squash files down to fit on a disk. It contains a collection of file compression utilities, including LliArc. Zoo and several PkZip utilities. Several of the older programs (such as Zoo) are difficult to get hold of, but many files on old PD disks or Bulletin Boards arc still stored using these type of programs.
Also included is the compression program LliWarp.
Which compresses disks. Many demos are stored on Bulletin Boards in this format, and it's also useful for transmitting entire disks.
If you're of a mind to go romping through the countryside and beating up other vikings, then this may be of interest to you. There's this bad guy who wants to take over your patch, so in order to oppose him. You have to take control of all 12 settlements.
A bloke has sent you 1.000 men and loads of gold, which you've decided to keep for yourself. Anyway, you've got to beat-up your opponents, and fortunately you've now got 1,000 mates to give you a hand.

DISKS Bored? Lifeless? Not feeling chipper and dandy? Why not
join Andy Nuttall and Richard Baguley as they sift through
some of the latest demonstrations of what your Amiga can do...
s'ir The Silents meet Aleister Ctowley, resulting in lots ol
demonic references and this rather, erm, serious chap.
The Silenls' new demo, curiously entitled Demon Download, is strange. A stonking soundtrack, with excellent bass and drum samples, threatens lo blow your monitor speakers while the screen displays various images - including an eerie face crying blood, as pictured here.
XW']' Other Beelzebub-type references include the number 666 on the front of an Amiga, and a hideous, er.
Scrolly wavy message. Anyway it's great fun. And there's a free game (Puo-Poo Dreams) thrown in for good measure.
ANOTHER BORING YEAR MBS I'm not sure that the title fils this particular demo - I mean OK. All the symptoms of every other megademo arc here, but the music is excellent.
Along with some fine graphics. Synlex have pul together a worthy addition to the range of Amiga megademos, but this one is apparently coded using AMOS. Good grief.
HARDLY AN ORIGINAL.
CYIMOST1C PD, DISKS A0027 Call me a boring old whatever if you will, but the idea of crossing a lemming with the cult science- fiction film 2001 never occurred to me. However, it did occur to Kevin Rochowski, and the result is his excellent animation titled ‘Hardly An Original Subject For a Demo' (subtitled 7 had my lunch at
20. 01. which was rather late).
It concerns the adventures of one of those popular Amiga creatures: a lemming (yes, another If ever there was an example of the versatility of AMOS, this is it - glen vector cubes, superb graphic images and clear samples (the musician credits French coder Moby, and the style is quite different to the usual megademo prog-rock style, in fact it's similar to much of Moby's work). A lot of work has gone into the presentation. If you have AMOS, either commercially or from our Coverdisk (A '42). Then get this demo and discover another possibility opened up by AMOS.
One) which evolves from a patch of mud, then makes its way across a barren wasteland, narrowly avoiding being squashed by a falling safe, before encountering a huge black monolith. Quite what one of these is doing in the desert I don't know, but we’ll skip that point for now. The background scenery is Vista generated, the animation is nicely hand-drawn, and the storyboard has been well thought out. Recommended.
A nicely presented music demo, with some exploding heads in it. Er, that last bit was a lie, it's just music really.
Musician Jim Young is no newcomer to Amiga music, examples of his work appear in various incarnations all over the world, but he is a newcomer to the PD Demo scene. After bearing this disk originally, we reckoned that his music was pretty good, so we persuaded him to send it to Cynostic PD - and now here it is.
MAY 1993 His band is called U4ia. And after getting together with coder Lioth and artists Dane and Ramchip. A Taste of U4ia was born. The five tracks form 25 minutes of music, crammed into one disk, and range from the Propaganda-csque Jc Ne Sals Pas to Astronaut’s Requiem, and it's similar in style to Tomita (he's a Japanese version of Jean Michel Jarre).
Only one track is slightly dodgy, the interestingly tilled This Heart Beats 4 IJ. Which boasts some excellent mctal-clang samples, but a horribly twee top-line.
The other tracks make up for this and we can look forward to more of U4ia's work in the future.

TEL: 0535 667 469 FAX: 0535 667 469 PD MUSIC & GFX DEMOS Tj 500 THINGS VS THE YOUNG GODS 500 THINGS VS NINE INCH NAILS CYNOSTK PD, DISKS S0062 & S0063 500 Things, aka Nic Cusworth, make another foray into the world of Amiga music with these two single-disk remixes. Regular readers of PD Demo Zone will recall reviews of previous disks such as I'm Jesus, I'm God, I'm Satan (AF36). Nic also produced a cassette album under the name 500 Things, entitled High on Hate, which caused a bit of a stir among industrial music fans.
Now, though, he turns his attention to a spot of remixing, concentrating on two of the finest bands In the 'Industrial' genre: Nine Inch Nails and The Young Gods. Each disk concentrates on a particular track from each band. For NIN it’s Gel Down Make Love - a cover version of the Queen track from the B-side of the Sin single. The samples are excellent, and Nic uses the Oclalyser program to mix the samples into a semblance of order.
The problem with remixes of songs using the Amiga is the lack of singing - obviously It's not possible to sample long sections of verse, so actually getting voices on the things is damn near impossible. With Get Down Make Love, though, there isn’t much in the way of singing on the original anyway, so the Amiga version converts pretty Continued from page 167 Following in the tradition, which began with Flip the Frog by Eric Schwartz, and continuing with the likes of Duncan the Dung Beetle by Roddy McMillan. Paul Tye has jumped on to the bandwagon and created his own character. Alvin
Aerosol. Unfortunately, though, it seems that this may be his only starring role, as you'll find out at the end.
170 In true Roiul Runner fashion. Alvin makes his approach on to the screen with the subtitle Bumcmupus Ozoneus. And a slight pause. The screen in question is Alvin's bathroom, complete with a wall cabinet Filled with toiletries, and the obligatory rubber duck. Sadly. Alvin's general peaceful and happy existence is spoiled by a fly which is busy buzzing around.
MAY 1993 Fortunately for Alvin, he is the embodiment of just the thing to get rid of the offending fly - a can of insecticide! Without any hesitation Alvin aims and Fires, and the fly bites the dust. Having done the dirty deed. Alvin then toddles off outside into the bla .ing sun - and promptly explodes in a cloud of ash. Bit of a shame, really, because he seemed to be a promising character. Still, given that this is a cartoon. Paul may perhaps decide to resume! Alvin at some point - let's hope it's soon.
SAVINGS CERT ANIM 1 7-BIT, DISK 2372 Fans of Gary Larson will like this. Most of the rip- off animations doing the rounds don't bother crediting the original, but this one does. It's based on the Larson animation used in the recent advert for National Savings Certificates - and if you don't know who Gary Larson is, go out and look for The Far Side books in your local bookshop.
Keith Nicholson thought the anim was so good, he had to do a version for the Amiga. It shows a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, where everything is made from line-drawings except for the butterfly itself. There's a surprise ending which doesn't actually appear in the original, and it's rather amusing.
The graphics are all hand drawn with no trace of a digitiser, and are extremely faithful to the original, Including Larson's signature. Excellent.
Well. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the remix of The Young Gods' excellent Sklnllowers.
Even though the singing on the album version isn't exactly inspired, it seems that it is necessary to keep the song flowing.
It’s a cracking attempt - don't get me wrong, ABSOLUTE INEBRIATION 1 7-BIT, DISK 2379 A&B Aha. But this one's in machine code. It's not often nowadays that I'm massively impressed by mcgade- nios. But this is the second that has caught my attention from the recent batch of PD.
This two-diskcr is packed to the jams with all manner of effects. The music isn't particularly of note, but fans of the genre will undoubtedly en|oy the disks, and it's nice to see some industrial music entering on to the scene after such a long absence. This is the future of dance music, so the more musicians we have making disks such as these the better off we ll all be. Nice one.
The sheer variety of graphical twists and turns that the coders have included here arc at limes breathtaking.
There are too many here to note down, but without a doubt the best is the transition between titles on the intro screen. After one line of text is displayed, the Amiga maps out each of the points contained in the text, then it maps out the points for the next line of text, and finally it quickly moves each point to its new position. The produced effect looks like an explosion, which then reduces down to a new order. Fantastic.
The other stuff is almost as good, including some bits of sw irly vectors and plasma effects that really set your head spinning. Get it and be impressed.

MJC PRICE £ CALL Remember - prices include VAT & delivery VISA Workbench 1.3 has a bug. Which lets out-of-control programs overwrite the clock with garbage. Afterwards.
1. 3 sees this as a clock that isn't there. There are many Public
Domain utilities to take care of this and they are similar to
the Shell command: Workbench What's going on inside your
Amiga? Why's it behaving in such a strange manner? What do I
do when it all goes horribly wrong?
Here's Pat McDonald with some reasoned explanations... Setclock RESET except that they don't check to sec if there's a clock fitted - they just zap the 50 bytes or so of clock memory with zeroes in order to clear it. Later versions of Workbench don't suffer from this problem.
Another thing it could be is that the battery which powers the clock chip when your computer is off has gone flat. Not all battery-backed clocks arc rechargable.
Some use flat lithium batteries, like oversize watch batteries. Which have to be replaced every few years.
Also which is the better buy? An A570 CD-ROM drive or a hard disk?
Which is belter, chocolate fudge cake or pilau rice?
There's more satisfaction in the cake, but there's more nutrition in the rice. What I'm saying is that a CD-ROM drive is used mostly for entertainment and educational purposes, whereas a hard drive enables you to use your computer for various creative projects and to get the most out of your 'serious' software.
Of course, some big games do install on to a hard disk, and you can get the vast majority of the Freil Fish PD disk collections on two Cds. So there are exceptions, but the above is a good rule of thumb.
A600 OR A1 200?
FROM: MATTHEW HILL. GODALMING I currently own a Spectrum +3 and 1 am considering upgrading to an Amiga. The only thing is, which one? I want a 20 Mb hard disk for sure, but do I get an A600 or an A1200? I tried using a friend's A500 with Workbench 1 J, and it was difTicult. I want to use the machine for serious uses and programming.
Either, really. Workbench 2 on the A600 is nearly as good as Workbench 3 on the A1200. They're both miles, miles better than 1.3. Some perverse 1.3 owners don't like Workbench 2 just because it's different.
Remember, the A600 doesn't go as fast as the A1200. It displays fewer colours and isn't as expandable - so an A1200 is a better buy by a long way.
With a hard drive, does Workbench come up automatically when you switch the machine on?
Yup. It's not instantaneous, but with most hard drives you get to Workbench within 30 seconds. On an A4000 you'll find it's more like three. If you put a floppy disk in the drive, then the computer will start from that instead.
Are there limitations to what can be stored on a hard disk?
Yes. Hard drives are rated as having a certain storage value - 20 Mb. 40 Mb. 80 Mb and many other sizes.
It's just like using a huge floppy disk that loads and saves like lightning. Oh, Mb stands for megabyte by the way. One million bytes and then a bit (1.048.576 to be exact).
MAY 1993 Continued overleaf HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH?
FROM: KA WESTHEAD, NORWICH I’ve been led to believe that last RAM allows chip RAM to be accessed only by the custom chips, is this correct? If so. Is It worth buying a chip RAM upgrade, because I already have 2Mb of fast RAM In my A600.
Hmm, nearly got it. As standard, most Amigas only have chip RAM. Which is general purpose RAM accessible by all the chips in the Amiga. All graphics and sounds have to be stored here, and il can also be used to store computer programs.
Fast RAM is memory that can only be accessed by the processor, so only programs can be stored here.
Because the custom chips cannot talk to it and interrupt the processor, well-behaved programs load themselves into fast RAM and leave the chip RAM for the sound and graphics.
It is always worth buying a memory upgrade if you find that your Amiga is running out of memory.
However, this does depend on what you are using it for. A gamesplayer doesn't have a genuine need for more than 2Mb of RAM - 1Mb is nearly always sufficient at the present time. If you are using a tool like MorphPlus, then 4Mb of fast RAM Is an absolute minimum, and 8Mb of the stuff is recommended.
What I think you meant to say is that you have 2Mb of chip RAM and is fast RAM worth getting? Like I say, il depends on whal you are using your Amiga for.
If you aren't sure how much of either you have connected, then type this into the Shell or CLI: Avail The Amiga will come back with how much Iasi and chip RAM you have, plus a total amount. It also tells you how much is in current use. By the way, the memory meter on Workbench 2 and above which says 'graphics memory' is referring to chip RAM. Same stuff, different name.
I have been programming In Motorola assembler on a Macintosh as part of my course at university. I tried to use the Devpac 2 disk from Amiga Formal 39 because I thought this would help me. However, I can’t work out how to Initiate the stack pointer. On the Mac, I simply type: movo.l $ 3000,A7 This doesn't work on Devpac. Do I need to use a different address, or Is there a completely different method ot doing this?
I have absolutely no idea. Do any readers?
Also, how can I use CrossDOS with Devpac, so that I can work on flies that I use with the Mac?
Just save your source files on to a PC disk (preferably formatted on the Mac with Apple File Exchange) and then load it on the Mac with the same program. You will almost certainly have to adjust Ihe labs and spaces, and maybe delete a couple ot spurious characters at the beginning of the file. But there's not a lot to it.
Do Aminas that arc bought with a hard disk always have Workbench on them, or do I have to go out and buy it separately?
Usually they do, although this is technically illegal for a shop or supplier to do unless they have a licence to supply Workbench. Commodore usually turn a blind eye to this, because they don't have Ihe capacity lo fulfil the entire market. It would also be embarrassing for them if they took a supplier to court over it - and lost.
CHEAPER AND BETTER?
FROM: TOBY O' ROURKK. BILI.KRICAY I have a problem with my Citizen Swift 24. It hands colour pictures as it prints - how do I get around this? I have followed the manual and I've tried lo get Citizen Print Manager on to my paint packages.
Try using a different printer driver and a different printer.device file in the devs directory. Printers sometimes need a bit of tinkering before they work to their best capacity w ith the Amiga.
Secondly. I want a hard drive for my A1500. I have £400 to spend, and am tempted lo get a GVP Impact 2 HDK, with a 120 Mb drive. Is there anything cheaper, and possibly better, for the same price?
No. GVP have the AI500 A2000 hard drive market sewn up. The old Nexus drives were up to the same spec, but the manuals and setup software weren't as good. The Gasteiner ALF3 is a lad faster, about the same price, but again the manuals and softw are are not so hot.
174 And what does the advert mean when it says "8Mb onboard"? I already have 1Mb inside my A1500.
MAY 1993 It means you get 8Mb of lovely fast RAM added to your computer as well as the storage capacity of your hard drive. If you gel 'out of memory ' errors with that lot.
Then you arc cither using badly written software which can't see it (thankfully a rarity), or you are trying to do something beyond the capacity of 9Mb of memory. Like creating a feature film on Deluxe Point.
Finally, why do you not test more hardware for the A1500. A2000. A3000 or A4000 series of computers?
MUMBO JUMBO... FROM: TIM BALL. SOUTHAMPTON I use Scribble! And CrossDOS to transfer text documents from my Amiga to the PC I use at university.
No problems there, but when I try to transfer documents the other way, It doesn't work. All I get is a few characters ot mumbo jumbo at the top and that's It. How do I do it properly?
I'd love to help, except that I haven't touched a PC for about six years and I have no intention of ever going back. I would guess that you are not saving the file in pure ASCII format on the PC. CrossDOS is seeing a lot of extra tunny characters in the file, one of which looks like the end ol the file (to CrossDOS) but isn't.
Also, I am considering buying XCAD2000 with a large slice from my meagre student grant. I have heard, though, that it sometimes introduces irregularities into the DXF files as used on PC AutoCAD.
Is this true, and is there any way around it?
XCAD 2000. The simplest of the XCAD series, is still way too difficult unless you are determined to learn.
This leature of XCAD has received more upgrades and We test all we get. To be honest, most companies in the serious' end of the market are reluctant about sending rather expensive boards to me to be stripped, tom apart and prodded. The reason is that, if an expansion is naff, then a company really doesn't want me lo tell you that.
I'd love lo see more high-spec hardware, and I am constantly chasing it. But it's not easy.
BLAG TIME PRINTOUTS FROM: JOHN HKDGKR, LUTON How many Amiga users have access to other computers which have printers attached? If it's a PC. Or it can read PC disks, you don't need to take the printer to the Amiga or vice versa: you don't need a really long cable. All you need is the CMI) icon found on Workbench 2 or higher, and CrossDOS from Amiga Format 40. Here's an example of how you go about it to print a picture in Deluxe Paint:
1. Set Workbench to use the correct driver for the type of
printer that you will be printing on.
2. Double click on the CMD icon in the Tools drawer of Ihe Kxtras
disk. This captures print and sends it to RAM:. If printing a
complex document, then you can easily overfill your computer's
memory capacity.
3. Insert Ihe Dpaint disk, and double click on the icon.
Load the IFF picture, and print it. Faentually a file will appear in RAM. Called CMD Filel.
4. (Juit from Dpaint. Double click on the RAM icon, and select
Show All Files from the Window menu.
5. An icon will appear, called CMDFilel. Click on it.
And select Rename from the Icon menu. Call it something more acceptable to a PC like IMAGE1.PRT.
6. Using CrossDOS. Copy the file from the RAM disk to a PC disk.
Click and hold on Ihe icon, and drag it to the icon for the PC
disk from the RAM disk!
7. Take the disk to the PC. And print it. Something like this
from MS-DOS should do the trick: COPY A: IMAGE. PRT PRT1: It
sounds strange, but it works. In theory, if you had an Amiga
with a printer and you wanted lo print PC files, a similar
procedure piping Ihe printer output to a file, transferring
it on a PC disk, and copying it to PAR: via Shell) would do
the job. There are going to be a lot of people caught printing
out their children's work on an office machine!
Bug lixes than any other, probably. Put it this way - if it was true. It isn't true now. It depends a) on what version of XCAD you get and b) what version ol AutoCAD you are using.
IT'S NOT MY FAULT!
FROM: FRANK JACKSON. LANGHOLM I purchased an A600 a few months ago after being impressed by my friend's older A500 Plus. Thinking the A600 to be the latest and greatest Amiga I went for it. I now buy all the Amiga magazines I can each month so that I can learn more about it. The thing is that Coverdisk 58 [Spot the slight flaw in this reader's complaint - Pat.) Containing Maxiplan and SlereoMaster is so incompatible that I am now totally frustrated.
Do you try Coverdisks out on the A600 as well as the A500 Plus? I wonder because I read so much in the magazine about the A500 Plus, but there's very little mention of the A600.
Dude! Bro! You are getting us confused w ith a different Amiga magazine. I can t say for sure because I don't bother with the competition often - I find they plagiarise us too much. Lots of people phone me and w rite to me to complain about Maxiplan. I feel templed to help, but I've never even seen the program so there's not a lot I can do.
I'm sick and tired of taking flak for other magazines' mistakes. I'm also sick of having to tell people that there's nothing I can do. Sorry, but do other magazines take responsibility for my mistakes, when they don't even bother with their ow n? No chance.
As for testing programs on the A600. Yes I test all Ihe Amiga Format Coverdisk programs on just that machine as well as others. Please people, don't get Amiga Format mixed up with the other, smaller Amiga magazines. I know it can be difficult because they rip off our design and layout something rotten.
AFFIRMATIVE, CAPTAIN FROM: GRAHAM CONLON, FOLKESTONE I have programmed in the past on my 1.2 A500, as well as on some Pcs and still do sometimes. I program in BASIC on the Amiga (fairly simple stuff), but whenever I want to load the programs I've created. I have to load BASIC first. Is there any wav to compile these programs so that I can run them straight from a disk without loading the BASIC language first?
If you arc using Amiga BASIC, as supplied with Workbench 1.2 and 1.3, then yes. What you want is the AC compiler from Absoft. It's rather old now. But then you do have a rather old machine now. Try phoning around the mail order companies and ask if they have an old copy. As I recall it's a bit expensive about £70.
Techno babble Do you know how to talk techie speak? Well, if you don't then this little bit of jargon-busting should sort you out... I am looking for some other languages for my Amiga and have already started to use Turbo C on the PC.
It would he excellent if I could get Turbo C on the Amiga. Is it available, and if so how much will it be.
Would I need a PC emulator?
With a PC emulator, you could run PC Turbo C. If you want the best Amiga C. then gel SAS Lattice C version 6 from Hisoft. It costs a lot (£200) but it's worth it.
On the subject of emulators, I have seen adverts for PC emulators and PC cards. Although the cards seem cheaper than an emulator, what is the difference between them? Also, give me a source for a good 286 emulator - nothing more or less.
Well, a PC card is usually an expansion for a real PC.
On an A15(H) or above, then you can fit a Commodore Bridgeboard emulator which also lets you plug in these genuine PC expansions (OK. This isn't much help to you. But it may be of help to other readers).
An emulator is an expansion, usually fitted inside the machine, which gives a large degree of IBM Microsoft compatibility. You can run many PC programs with an emulator, because PC software is written to work with a wide range of different brands and marks of PC.
You've got a choice of two, the Vortex ATOncc Plus or the KCS Powerboard. The ATOncc is a 286 emulator - important if you arc using PC software that won't run without a 286. However, the KCS board is actually a great deal faster than the Vortex product.
The reason is that the KCS uses the Amiga as a graphics and sound display for a PC - you can't run Amiga software at the same time as the PC. You can do this with the ATOnce. But it's a lot slower. You can get a KCS from Bitcon Devices Ltd (091-490 1919) for about £210. A Vortex board (you need to dismantle your A500 A500 Plus to fit one) will set you back about £180. And is available from Silica (081-309 1111). G?
Accelerator: hardware expansion that gives your Amiga a faster CPU. Often used with maths-intensive software where a standard processor is too slow, for programs called ray tracers' which literally trace the rays of light which bounce around a scene to produce a picture. Also used to considerably speed up flight and other kinds ol simulations.
Anim Brush: a brush is a small section of a graphic screen, cut out with a paint program like Deluxe Paint.
Anim brushes are different small images with the same dimensions - for instance, a bird flapping its wings or an eye blinking.
Blitter: Block Image TransfER device. Used for copying large areas of memory from A to B. or to combine different areas into one single image.
Widely used to generate large graphic shapes in computer games Bridgeboard: Commodore's own IBM emulating device, featuring a complete PC computer on a single card. Only fits A1500 and above machines - enables use of standard PC cards.
Chip RAM: memory accessible by the custom chips (Paula. Agnus. Denise) as well as the processor Used to store all graphics and sounds. Can be used by programs too - with speed slow downs.
CLI: Command Line Interface. The program which enables you to type commands into AmigaDOS for standard operations like copying files or getting a directory Shell is more commonly used now Copper: co processor Used to generate subtly coloured backgrounds - this device is built into the Agnus chip and it can alter colours while the screen is being generated. Executes instructions at Ihe same time as the processor.
CPU: Central Processing Unit. The decision-making chip, the one that tells everything else what to do. It can be interrupted by custom hardware if its programs are in chip RAM Fast RAM: memory that's only accessible by the processor. Programs stored here run faster than those in chip RAM - hence the name.
Frame grabber: device tor captunng live video data and converting it into computer picture data Doesn't require a still video signal. Usually gives much better results than a video digitiser, which does the same job, except that the video must be paused.
Frcciar cartridge: quasi-legal device for examining programs while they are running. Usually with many useful built-in utilities which help overshadow its dubious origins.
Hard drlva: basically a big disk for keeping Workbench and all the serious software that you use.
Works much faster than a floppy disk. More and more games are becoming installable on to a hard drive.
IFF: Interchange File Format. A standard way of storing pictures and sounds, invented by Electronic Ads and adopted by Commodore. A single standard - practically all art programs can load and save pictures in this form.
Kickstart: the name of the set of programs which are run when the Amiga is turned on. Also contains many library functions for use by programmers. Latest release is Kickstart 3. Other releases; 2,1.3,1.2,1.1. PD: Public Domain. Literally, software that is the property of everybody. PD disks can be freely copied by anyone, and you can also distribute them to whoever you want. The correct term is Freeware' Shareware' (try before you buy) and Licenseware (commercial and non-distributable) also come under the same rough heading of very cheap software'.
ROM: Read Only Memory. Memory that cannot be altered Widely used as the starting programs for computer systems that have just been turned on - ROMs remember things permanently.
RAM: Random Access Memory. Memory that can be altered and re-altered many times. Typically, it does not remember what it contains when the computer's power is switched off.
Scanner: hardware device for reading flat pictures from posters, newspapers and so on. And converting them into computer graphics. Often used in desktop publishing to read in previously published images.
Script file: a set of commands which you would otherwise have to type into the CLI or Shell by hand, saved as a text file. Learning how to use Shell or the CLI involves learning how to write script files.
175 Shall: more up-to-date version of CLI. Works in exactly the same way. But enables some flexibility in what commands are called via the alias' function. Also gives some hot key combinations to enable some editing of previously entered commands.
MAY 1993 Sound Sampler: hardware device that converts electrical music signals (typically from a tape or CD player) into computer sound. Can also be used with a microphone to capture live sounds Sprite: a graphic object that is independent ol the screen. On the Amiga, sprites are limited in size and colours. Typically used for mouse pointers, alien missiles. And so on.
Startup-tequeoce: the name of the script file, contained in the S directory, which is executed after a disk has booted. Typically contains just the name of a program to auto-run, but can be very complicated.
Whatever the nature of the file, it must always be called Startup-sequence and live in the S directory.
Workbench: the set of programs which set up a graphical point-and-click’ interface on the Amiga.
Much more friendly than the CLI or Shell, but not as flexible Always has to be loaded trom disk, which is slow but does enable much customisation. Workbench 2 requires a Kickstart 2 ROM Workbench 1.3 requires a 1.3 ROM, 1.2 needs a 1.2 ROM and so on.
Zorro: this the generic name tor the Amiga’s expansion connector. The A500, A500 Plus and A1000 had the original Zorro I; the A1500s and the A2000s have Zorro II; and the A3000 and A4000 have Zorro III.
They are not compatible, hence the different expansions for different machines. The A600 and A1200 have a PCMCIA connector instead.
