Tough times for Commodore! Despite the continuing success of the Amiga in the UK, the Big C's fortunes have not been so good worldwide. When Commodore should have been concentrating on their premium product, the Amiga, they were wasting time and resources targeting the PC market, which is cut-throat to say the least. When they should have been making the Amiga better, cheaper and more attractive, they were resting on their laurels, and considerable sales.
The Amiga succeeded as a games machine, although it was never intended as such, and that market has been ravaged by the consoles. So Commodore have been left to shut down offices and make redundancies world wide. What does this mean to you and I, the Amiga owner? Well... possibly nothing!
Commodore's recent actions have been a rationalising of the organisation, and they are now a leaner and fitter company, better equipped to face the future. We wish them well in their fight to regain profitability. But if they fail it does not mean the death of the Amiga.
Commodore have a hot new CD-based console waiting in the wings. It makes the Mega CD seem like a sick joke, and Marcus Dy$ on' edi,or it deserves to be a success. But battling against Sega's multimillion pound advertising campaign will not be easy for Commodore in their current condition.
But whatever happens to Commodore, the Amiga technology, and the Amiga name, will persevere. The chip set is too good to go to waste and the machines are too great to be left to lie fallow. If Commodore fail to turn the economic tide, there will be a whole host of companies keen to jump in and take the Amiga into their product range.
Don't worry, but do stick around, there will be interesting times ahead.
Stardust Imagine a game with the graphics of Team 17 and the playability of an arcade classic. A new software house take an old game and spice it up beyond recognition. Full Instructions on page 6.
Cheat Compendium 452 games are covered - whether it be how to activate the cheat mode, a few level codes or a simple way to see the end of the game without playing it all the way through. Instructions on page 7.
A1200 Fixes Want to play Speedball 2, Last Ninja 3, Shadoworlds or Heimdall on an A1200?
Well now you can, thanks to these four very special tweaking programs. For more information see page 7.
Genesis Ever wanted to toy with a 3D rendering program, just to find out what all the fuss is about? Genesis offers simple, but effective, results and is very quick in action to boot.
Further explanations on page 8.
Flexiparse Of special interest to computer graphics students, this utility converts between the award winning Winsom format and Genesis models. Instructions on page 10.
Full Coverdisk instructions start on next page... Well, if you want to go rock smashing, cheat at hundreds of different games, run incompatible games on an A1200 or just sit down and design a whole virtual 3D, here's the man who knows how - Pat McDonald.
Stardust Bloodhouse ¦ PAL Only Alright, first an admission. Most of the programs on the disk are very easy to start and get going - with the exception of the programs in the Genesis drawer. To use Genesis or Flexiparse, I regret that you are going to have to get your hands dirty and use the Shell a bit.
Loading instructions for these programs are on the relevant pages (8 and 10).
GETTING STARTED AUGUST 1993 Right, for everything else, loading is very easy. Just turn on any 1Mb Amiga. Put the Coverdisk into the internal drive, and wait for Workbench to load (this takes several seconds, not minutes). Then, move the mouse pointer to the Coverdisk icon, and rapidly click on it twice with the left mouse button. This is called double clicking.
A window will open, displaying the contents of the Coverdisk. To run the Stardust demo or the Cheat Compendium, simply double click on the relevant icon. Both programs will take slightly longer to load than you are probably accustomed to - so it is best to check the floppy disk drive light to make sure either program is loading.
To run any of the A1200 fixes, just double click on the A1200 Fixes drawer, and then again on the Fix icon that you want to run.
There are some icons to click on in the Genesis drawer, but these are explanations of how to use Genesis and Flexiparse, and also an explan- tion of Constructive Solid Geometry - how Genesis actually works.
Please note that some programs talked about in the Genesis and Flexiparse documentation are not included on the Coverdisk. Due to lack of space. However, everything necessary for the programs to work from the Shell is on the disk. The missing programs should be available from good Public Domain libraries.
THIS IS AN Asteroids play-alike, from a new Scandinavian software house. It's not a clone of the classic arcade hit. But uses the game format with lots of pretty extras added.
If you've never heard of Asteroids before, then the basic rules are vers simple. You control a spaceship which starts in the middle of the screen. You have to shoot the asteroids, which disintegrate into smaller pieces, which diminish further when shot, until there's just you left on the screen. There, the similarities end . X X 1
• r .-9 . w To choose which level you start on. Move the
joystick to a space without a cross, then press the fire
button.
And the additions begin. Different coloured asteroids take more or less hits to destroy. As a rule of thumb, grey ones are a pushover and gold ones are very tough nuts indeed.
Another major difference is that you have three weapons to deal with the space rocks. The default is Plasma, very similar to the plasma shotgun weapon in Alien Breed - come to think of it, the entire game has a certain Team 17 feel about it. Which isn't a bad thing since they haven't produced a naff game yet.
Anyway, the other weapons arc a flamer (very effective. But very short range) and a three-way cannon. I find these two pretty ineffective, but other people in the office swear by their own weapon. Having a choice means that you can find your own ways to play the game. Just press the spacebar to change weapons.
At the bottom right of the screen, you will sec two status bars. The silver one is for your shield. Pull back on the joystick to activate this - you will be temporarily invulnerable, but the bar goes down rapidly. When it reaches the bottom, there's no more shield unless you pick up the right token.
The rightmost bar is for your energy level. When you hit a rock without your shield on. This goes dow n. When il runs oul you explode and lose a life. So it's very, very important to keep both bars as high as you possible can.
To do this, you have to pick up the right token.
Tokens sometimes appear when you destroy the smallest asteroids. As the tokens spin, they change type. So it's a question of knowing what all the tokens do. And judging whether it's worth getting or waiting for it to change to something more worthwhile.
The nicest thing about the old asteroids was that you could spend forever with just one tiny asteroid to watch out for. Shooting the alien ships to gain points.
You can't do this in Stardust, because each level has a preset time limit.
If you go over this time limit, then two things happen. First, all current asteroids are destroyed, and the screen goes through a very weird colour change. After that, an alien ship appears, which drops off lots of smaller ships. If this happens, you have to destroy all of these in order to get to the next screen. The rocks are a cakewalk compared to these - so watch your time limit and stay within it.
The final mothership only appears after you have cleared all three levels. Most of the time, your shots will be absorbed into its armour. The mothership only becomes vulnerable when it stops, opens its armour, and shoots at you. It's a bit tricky to finish off (even when it's vulnerable it's a tough cookie) but you should be able to finish the demo within about an hour.
The final finished game will feature 30 levels and 10 cnd-of-levcl guardians for il - and I bet it's not nearly as easy as this demo! ® Cheat Compendium M R Whiting, M Collinge PAL only Want to see the hidden missions on FA 18 interceptor? Or find the elusive (and very rare) infinite energy trick on Shadow of The Beast?
The Cheat Compendium has these and hints, level codes and passwords for 450 more games, all in an easy-to-use, point and click AMOS program. One word of caution though - it takes about 10 seconds from when you click on the CC icon, to when it actually starts loading. Be patient for this happen.
The authors have been very patient about it going on the disk, sending in updates and fixes over a six month period. All in all, it’s a program that can save you many hours of searching through magazines. Admitedly it's a bit weak on solutions for very complex games like Monkey Island 1 and 2, or Eye of the Beholder.
AUGUST 1993 So most of the games covered are arcade in nature. We make no apologies for this - after all, in-depth adventure games mentioned above can be solved by lots of experimentation and a lot of thought. Whereas if you just haven't got the reactions for an arcade, there's no way you are going to complete it. Go blow the dust off of your uncompleted software collection and see if this program helps!
PICK UPS: WHAT THEY WILL DO * * Smart bomb As with any shoot-em-up, Stardust contains plenty of items to pick up. These take the forms of spinning gold coins, each displayG Gun power up ing a letter which shows what the pick up will do. The following table shows the • C Control improvement range of pick ups and their effects: (‘although these exist in the real game, s Shield we've yet to find one in the demo.

M Homing missile the letter will change - so if you need a particular weapon or bomb just be patient - it ! B Mega bomb will appear eventually.
* X Extra life * A1200 Fixes Phill BB ¦ A1200s only Oh. Terrible
incompatibility problems with the A1200. Doom, doom, the end of
the world is nigh. Well, not according to the author of these
four patch programs, which allow you to run formerly
incompatible games on an A1200.
Wow! The fixes in no way alter the disks, so you have to run them everytime before you try loading the games.
The four games in question are Speedball 2, Heimdall, Shadowlands, and Last Ninja 3.
Well, Last Ninja 3 actually works fine on an A1200, but it normally doesn't use the extra memory of the machine. If you run the fix first though, then you will have to put up with much less disk swapping.
According to Phil: "Most of the incompatibility problems are down to very poor memory handling". He has been very careful so that the fixes will only work with original disks of the games, and not with pirate copies.
COVEIYDISK fTp Th* Earth.model file does not quite render thi» image - the land is all blue and the sea non existent. With Genesis, a tiny change produces huge ones in the finished picture.
Steve Woodman ¦ PAL NTSC THIS BEING A special 3D issue, we thought we had belter give you a 3D rendering program, to give you a hands on taste of what it's all about. Genesis is far from perfect - it's not complete, nor is the companion program Flexiparse. Don't think you can turn out 3D wonders with it overnight, because it's controlled through the keyboard - no nice point and click interface on this program.
AUGUST 1993 The program is closer in design to the ultra expensive mainframe computer graphics system of ihe early to mid eighties than an up-to-date program like Real iO 2. It cannot even save out IFF files of the pictures it generates. However, included in the Genesis drawer is a program called ScrecnX. Which you can use to get graphics off the screen, and on to a disk. Just because it’s clumsy to use doesn't mean it's no good.
Genesis is a very fast 3D rendering program - faster than anything you will find in the Public Domain. You don't have to be a genius to get results out of it either, because in the Models and Genesis drawer, arc some preset objects for you to experiment with.
Here's a rough outline of how it works. Genesis takes a model file, which is a description of a scene typed into a word processor or text editor. Contained within this file is information like the resolution and number of colours to use for the picture; primitive information about all the models: and incidental inforUSING SCREENX In order to extract the screens from out of Genesis, you have to use the supplied ScreenX utility. Using it is fairly simple. Simply double click on the icon from Workbench, and the ScreenX titlebar appears at the top of the screen.
In order to grab a screen from Genesis, just flick back to Workbench (pressing Amiga-N and Amiga M toggle through Workbench and launched programs), then point the mouse at the ScreenX titlebar and click once with the left button, and again with the right. Alter the filename and place to mation like the viewing position and what perspective to use. Such model files always have the word model as a suffix, for instance "World.mixlel". First Steps Before you can run Genesis, you must first load Workbench, either from floppy or hard drive. Then find a CLI or Shell icon, and double click 011 that.
Then type;- CD Coverdisk49:Genesis This forces Shell to look for commands from the Genesis directory on the Coverdisk - Shell Changes Directory. So. If you only have one disk drive, you have to swap disks. Once you are there though, you can run Genesis very simpiy;- Genesis Modeis Cheese.modei This will start the rendering program, with the cheese.model file from the Models directory. It takes a couple of minutes or so to finally finish. Incidentally, if you want to see all the models available on the Coverdisk. Just typc:- Lisc Coverdisk49:Models Cheese.model save it on the box at bottom
right, select the screen you want to grab from the list top left - it's usually the bottom screen on the list - then click on "Save IFF".
You should be aware of two things. First, saving IFF picture files on to disks without enough space on can corrupt the disk. Second, pictures from ScreenX are best loaded and saved In and out of Deluxe Paint in order for them to work with other programs. Apart from that, the best of British luck to you!
Again, a couple of disk swaps will be necessary for single drive users. Not all the files in the Models drawer are model files for Genesis. Some are instead in Winsom format (they have the suffix .CSG) and will not work with Genesis until they have been processed by Flexiparse.
Genesis Although Genesis models are extremely rare - what's on the Coverdisk is nearly all there are - models in the Winsom language are relatively common.
Winsom is a constructive solid modelling language that one many awards when it first appeared at Winchester University.
Like Genesis. Winsom models have to be typed in with a word processor or text file. Winsom is a more powerful language than Gensis - you can design models with half the statements in Winsom than the commands provided by Genesis.
In order to quit out of Genesis and go back to the Shell, you have to type exit and press return. This tells Genesis to exit and go back to the Shell or CLI.
Genesis can be used interactively - you can type the geometric commands into it one line at a time, and see what happens.
Further Exploration There's not really much more I can say about the program in this small space, except that a full list of the syntax that Genesis accepts is contained in the ReadmcGcncsis file (just double click on the icon).
Also, if you want to really explore the system, then load the files from the model drawer into a word processor or text editor.
The .model files used by Genesis are very complex. And. To be honest, you are better off studying the .CSG Winsom files which Flexiparse translates into Genesis models. Winsom is a much simpler system, especially if you have a limited knowledge of computer languages. However, you must open the screens and set the camera viewpoint with Genesis - Flexiparse cannot do this.
Finally, this set of programs is freely distributable, but may not be altered in any way without permission of the author. Steve Woodman, while fairly happy w ith Genesis as a teaching aid. Docs not want the program developed further without his say so.
Oh yes. The files Dilbm. Pilbm and MovieMaker are not included on the disk, simply due to lack of space. The readme files have not been touched since they landed 011 Neil Jackson's desk one day. Now you know who 'Spikcy Boy' is. O D U N Ell BATTLE Fot ARRAK IS AVAILABLE ON AMIGA This is a really specialised program - it's only of real interest to those who have some Winsom graphic models that they can import to their Amigas.
We're really only talking about university types and 3D specialists - but wherever Genesis goes. Flexiparse should go with it. If only to translate the Winsom .CSG files found in the Models drawer into true Genesis models.
However, there's quite a few quirks and a couple of bugs in Flexiparse.
The reason it and Genesis are on the disk is to give you, the reader, a few insights into the highly complex and maths based world of computer 3D graphics.
Flexiparse Steve Woodman PAL NTSC Nobody would pretend that you could become an expert in the subject overnight. Genesis is educational, but only in teaching broad concepts.
Flexiparse is simpler to understand Genesis, by a long stretch.
Here's how it works. Follow the same procedure as for Genesis, that is.
Type this into a Shell or CLI;- CD Coverdiskt9:Genesis Then just type the name of the program to get it going;- Flexi parse The computer needs two different file names. The first it the name (and location) of the Winsom .CSG file that you want to convert. The second is the output directory - where you want the Genesis.model code to go. Plus a name to identify it.
The program takes about five minutes to convert a 5000 line file from .CSG to .model format. That's on a floppy-based system. On a hard disk it's more like about one minute. Quite a saving, when you consider you may have to work and re-work the final picture, for not getting it right at the start.
Baclcing up your Disk AUGUST 1993 There are two ways of making a copy of your disk, and this is the easy one. Don't be daunted by the fact that you need to use the Shell or CLI: it's actually a lot easier than you might think.
Just follow these simple steps... Iload your Workbench disk. Open the disk, find the kon that says Shell or Cll and double-dkk on it.
2 When the Shell window appears and the drive light is oat, type in (DfO as in Zero, not DFO as In Oops): Dlekcopy from DFO ¦ to DFO I and press the Return key.
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 and press the Return key.
Woit for o while and it wdl reod all the information off the Coverdisk, telling you how for it has got. Then it will ask you to insert the 'Destination' disk. Pot the disk you want to copy your Coverdisk on to in the drive and press the Return key. Note that the disk does not need to be formatted already.
5 Pat the source disk and destination disk in a couple more times when the Amiga asks for them. When it says 'Diskcopy finished*' jost type in: endcli to get oat of the Shel or CU. Too moy have to pat the Workbench disk in ogam. Now yoar copy is reodyl Disk not working?
We duplicate nearly 200,000 disks every month. Out of all those, obviously a few will be faulty. If the disk or any of the programs will not load or run properly, there may be a problem. Don't panic!

Amiga prices go crazy MORI SCANNER SUPPORT AS PREDICTED in Iasi month's issue, the recommended retail
price of the A600 has fallen to £199.99 for a stand alone machine and £229.99 for the Wild Weird and Wicked bundle. The hard drive based Epic pack now costs £349.99 - at this price it has to be worth getting for new users who want more than just a console, but cannot run to the AI200's price range. David Pleasancc. Commodore's general manager of marketing said: "We've always striven to make the Amiga 600 a truly affordable machine for youngsters and newcomers to the Amiga world. With this spectacular new price there's never been a better time to he shopping for a home computer."
Existing owners on the upgrade path have been given an incentive too. Perhaps aware of what the A600 price plummet w ill do to AMMI resale values. Commodore have "We've always striven to make fhe A600 a truly affordable initiated an official trade up scheme. You A300 will now mothine." And at the new £199.99 price point it certainly is.
Fetch you £100 against the purchase of a new A1200. These deals are available at Commodore dealers now .
On a less pleasant note, the price of the A4000AI30. Commodore's best value machine, have risen. It seems they have held the price of the base machine while reducing the standard configuration. £999 now gets you an 80Mb HD and 2Mb of RAM. £1,099 is the new price for the 80Mb model with 4Mb of RAM and a 4 120 configuration will cost you £1.199. The new base configuration is simply not adequate. An XOMb hard drive is the minimum we would recommend for an A4000 and 2Mb of RAM can't even accommodate Art Department Professional. It is preposterous that Commodore should offer the machine at that
spec. Since its release, demand for the 4000 030 has outstripped supply, and it is possible Commodore arc capitalising on the new machine's popularity.
AUGUST 1993 CLIP ART CORRAL ASDG are continuing developing for the Amiga market and have increased their scanner support via Art Department Professional by adding the Hewlett Packard Scanjet lie to the existing drivers for Epson and Sharp scanners.
Also coming soon from them will be an updated version of CygnusEd. For further details call Meridian Software Distribution on 081-543 3500.
MIDI FOR HUMANS is the title of a planned series of video tutorials from RIPS systems. Aiming to be the 'industry standard to which everyone will turn' for MIDI information and advice, the course is designed to span the full gamut of MIDI usage. The project is in planning, and anyone wishing to discuss ideas or sponsorship should contact Robert Treen on 0869 278470.
VIDEO TIMELAPSE Optonica have a product designed to help create timelapse videos. It uses a point and click interfoce to offer control over single frame video photography. An interesting feature is the hardware trigger which allows frames to be recorded when triggered by anything from a disk being inserted to motion, heat, light or sound by using a system of external detectors. We'll be putting it to the test as soon as we can get our hands on one.
Optonica - 0455 558282.
MORE SIMPATKA Not satisfied with producing the preferred single frame rendering system among Amiga professionals, Optonica have now improved it. Simpotica 2 is AGA compatible, and has a new 24 bit rotoscoping feature. This allows images to be single frame digitised to disk, and then manipulated in Amiga graphics packoges, allowing T2 style video morphing, among other things. An upgrade costs £49.95, the new program £350.
NO OTHER TYPE of film has such durable universal appeal" waxes Diskotech about the Western. We re not sure we agree, being sci-fi fans here in AF, but we agree that £15 for a two disk package of Western movie-themed clip art is a fair deal. Especially when it contains over 2.300 individual graphics.
The package is designed for creating cowboy-style animations in Dpaint and other similar animation paint packages. Diskotech - 05912 242.
VIRGIN GAMES HAVE announced a host of new Amiga titles planned for later this year.
The first two are due for release in July. McDonald's Global Gladiators is Virgin's second tie-in with the burger chain, and on first sight the colourful graphical The spot from the 7-Up logo makes it big Style looks more promising at last with Virgin's release of Cool Spot than the appalling McDonald- on Amiga.
Land (AF41 - 44 per cent). Also for release in July will be Apocalypse, the long-awaited helicopter shoot-em-up developed by Miracle Games. We've played both of them, and they are certainly almost there - look out for reviews next issue.
The big news is that Cool Spot, the recent hit on the console-toys, is to be developed for the Amiga.
Virgin's Caroline Stokes told us: "All I can tell you is the Amiga version will be released for Christmas, and it will be absolutely brilliant." If you're lucky, you might, just might, Mick and Mock are back in find a Coverdisk demo of the game °n ,he ,ro", of °ur chH$ ,mos i»ue- Cool Spot heads Virgin releases Prices of the two existing A4000 030 models hove risen, ond Commodore have introduced a new base configuration with just 2Mb of RAM.
NEWS or i ej COME TOGETHER There are a host of user groups on the Amiga scene, and we've just received the first newsletter from a brand new CDTV User Group. If you have one of the shiny black units and want to share your knowledge and experiences with others in a similar position, give them a call on 0785 27059.
24 MOVES The 24-bit dub are on the move. They are now available at 6 Skirsa Square, (Dept AF) Glasgow, G23 5DW.
Their services include free access to backdrop and texture files in numerous different formats, free access to their objects library, free access to their animation library, and an advice service.
They also have a more general Amiga help service, which offers a huge free PD library, a free huge font collection, a clip art collection and a personal advice service (about your machine not your marriage we suspect). Fees are a very reasonable £20 for each service, or £35 for both. Drop them a stamped addressed envelope to the address above for details.

Commodore hit hard times C THK AMIGA’S MANUFACTURER has just announced a global ralionalisalion program lo help them face lough limes. Sales of ihe Amiga have Afa||en worldwide, wilh only ihe UK continuing lo offer spiralling success. In Europe Commodore's subsidiary companies in Sweden. Norway. Benelux. Spain and Portugal will be closed. The German office is being scaled down, bul ihe slaff there will accept responsibility for some of the countries w hich are losing dedicated centres of operation.
Although ihe Amiga has continued lo be massively successful in the UK. The strength of Ihe dollar has reduced the value of this market to the America parent company. The rationalisation of operations have helped Commodore avoid 'Chapter II'. The American equivalent of calling in the receivers. Financial backers are now confident that the company is in a position to forge a financially successful future.
The Amiga is very successful in the UK, but the strength of the dollar has reduced the value of this market to Commodore US.
Sony buy Psygnosis WHI1.K MANY OK you will be familiar with the act of purchasing computer games, it's unlikely that any of you will have bought an entire software house. But that is exactly what faceless. International mega- corp Sony have just done.
And not just any software house either, but our very own Psygnosis. Distributor of the holy Lemmings.
Sony have been active in the acquiring of software creation companies in a number of media. Sony's acquisitiveness may be attributable to the failure of their Bctamax and DAT formats, which suffered at the hands of Film and Record companies who failed to offer support to the formats. Sony subsequently bought huge amounts of the world's audiovisual media companies. Their interest in the field of computer leisure software could well presage their diversification into this field. Sony last dabbled with the computer market in the early Eighties with the MSX standard, but the market has raised
in profile considerably since then, and many electrical companies are now reappraising it.

¦e raving The graphical power of the Amiga is being put to full effect these days in a number of music videos. Dr Devious and the Temple of Chaos and Global Chaos are just two of the recent rave music videos to be issued which feature Amiga graphics.
Neither of them are os good as PD demos like State of the Art, or Jesus on i's, but they are worth a look. Global Chaos is particularly good, and was created by Hex on the Amiga. They used an A2000, a 1500 and on A4000, plus a CDTV. Rather thon cold ond clinical 3D workstation bank-odvert type anims.
Hex do garage punk mashed-up dirty graphix, and they're all the better for it.

OCEAN SEX FIEND The soundtrack for the next game from Ocean and Digital Image Design.
Inferno, will be composed and performed by the legendary group Alien Sex Fiend. The soundtrack will be specifically for the CD version of the game. Ocean will be releasing Open Golf Championship simultaneously for both the At 200 and A500. Expect a full review next month. Ocean are on 061 832 6633 Artiste Image New Amiga rumours abound YOU WILL ALL have heard, by now, of the new Amiga CD console.
But rumours are now circulating about a new Amiga to be launched before the end ot this year. The machine will be, it is said, much closer to the specification many people expected trom the A1200.
Commodore have been surprised by the uptake ot the A1200, and even more by the number ot A1200 owners who go on to accelerate and expand their machines. The new Amiga, thought to be called the A1400 will otter a slightly higher specification than the A1200. The discontinuation of the A600 should see the entire Amiga range being AG A machines, with the A1200 as the base model.
The 1400 is expected to be cased in a very small box and will still be 68020 powered, but will probably offer a higher 25Mhz (or even 28Mhz) clock speed. A high density disk drive and PCMCIA slot will be featured. The case will allow space for 3.5-inch IDE drives to be used, and a 3.5-inch drive bay will allow CD-ROM SyQuest drives to be fitted. The keyboard will be detachable. Standard configurations are said to be 4Mb RAM 80Mb hard drive. Price? Around £600.
MicroProse in space... FOLLOWING THE EXCELLENT Gunship 2000 (see page 90), the next game from MicroProse is a futuristic space adventure in the style of Elite.
Starlord follows a science fiction storyline, where you must work your way from a lowly Lord up to Emperor of the Galaxy.
Since the Galaxy contains well over over 1,000 stars, MicroProse reckon this is going to be something of a challenge. Not to Amiga Format readers, though, we reckon.
Also due from MicroProse is Dogfight. Not surprisingly, this is a dogfighting simulation, where you will be able to select from a range of planes: from the Sopwith Camel to the F-16A Falcon. A dogfight between WW2 aircraft and modern day jet fighters is an interesting prospect - but you'll have to wait until later on this year to get your hands on these gomes. MicroProse 0666 S04326.
FUTURE PUBLISHING, MAKERS of AMIGA Formal.
Are about to launch Edge - a magazine dedicated to the future of videogaming. Edge isn't like other games mags; in fact, it's probably the first magazine of its type.
It doesn't do playing tips, it never has any covermountcd stickers or disks, and it only reviews the cream of video games. Edge w ill be covering the very best of Amiga. PC.
Sega and Nintendo as well as new developments like CD- Only Stupid People Don1 Subscribe A quick poll of the Amiga Formal office staff reveals that if we didn't work on the magazine then we'd all subscribe to,If.
That's because from this issue on. Subscribers receive an extra disk every month packed with the best utilities, fonts, and all sorts of other stuff. And that's not all (it wouldn't be. Would it?), subscribers also get an extra news letter telling them what goes on behind the scenes at Amiga Formal, and a full set of instructions on how to work the subscribers disk. If you think you’re missing out.
And unless you subscribe you definitely are.
Turn now to page 150 and gel yourself in on the deal of the century.

AUGUST 1993 CURLY RETURNS VIRGIN GAMES HAVE just signed a deal with softies Acclaim, to develop and market Amiga versions of their games. These include Terminator Coin-op, Crash-Test Dummies, and Mortal Kombat, which the console-types are currently calling a Streetfighter 2-beater. All three games are pencilled in for release in November. More details as they comf! In, and it looks likely that Amiga Format will be bringing you an exclusive Coverdisk demo of Mortal Kombat prior to its release.
While we're on the subject of Acclaim, some of you may be wondering what happened to Krusty's Super Fun House, which was reviewed back in 4743 (85 per cent), Alien 3 (4745 - 70 per cent), and Bart vs the World, a demo of which appeared on the cover of
4743. Well, the answer is they haven't been released yet.
Although the games have been complete for months, there
have been delays in getting the softwore on to the
streets.
The three games will now be released in November through Virgin Games.
Virgin gets Acclaim EAST. THE FEDERATION Against Software Theft, have co-operated with New Scotland Yard's Metropolitan Police Computer Crime Unit on a major bulletin board bust.
They slate that "A 19-year-old man was arrested in connection with the alleged unauthorised sale of computer software. It is also alleged that the pirated software was of a sort not yet generally released in the UK."
FAST chief executive Bob Hay adds: "Bulletin Boards have been responsible for creating an open forum for computer users to share a wealth of information and ideas. Unfortunately, as with all great ideas, there's always a group of people with a vandal mentality that will look to ruin things."
If you're a software pirate you may think you're a new age Robin Hood. And that you are ripping off vast international corporations, but you are not.
You are hilling the livelihood of people like Andy Braybrook.
Jon Hare. Mev Dine. Peter Molvneux and Eric Matthews, who are good blokes. And you are spoiling it lor us. So stop it!
Oni rrip BEYOND, the new game starring Quavers dog Colin Curly, is due to hit the Amiga at the end ot July.
The game is the lollow-on trom PushOver (4738 - 86 per cent), though One Step Beyond doesn't contain any dominoes at all. In tact, it's a maze platform game, with 99 levels, which Ocean promise will the most addictive game of the year. Ocean 061-832 6633.

ALL YOU A1200 owners who have Jimmy White's Snooker or Archer MacLeans Pool can now rest easy. Archer's been busy tweaking these games and has come up with versions o( which work quite happily on the new machine.
“The older versions ot the game ran in 25Hz mode tor most of the time,” Archer told us, "except when there were loads of balls on the screen. The A1200 versions run in 25Hz mode all the time, so they look a lot smoother.'' Expect the games to hit the shops in early July.

John Madden American Football Electronic Arts FG94% 30(-| Re Archer MacLean's Pool Virgin 89% NEWS PREVIEW fTp Following a storming success with Sensible Soccer, those Sensible boys are at it again, adding the finishing touches to their latest game.
Andy Nuttall pays them a visit, and, quite literally, gets blown away... Fodder for thought... "THERE'S NO BLOOD, no death. It's all about Curly Wurlys and oranges." Jools. One of Sensible's programmers, tells me about their new creation. Cannon Fodder. With tongue heavily in cheek, he goes on to describe further how this new game contains no violence, absolutely no gore, and how it is packed to the gills with nice things like chocolate bars and fruit.
Ever get the feeling you're being stitched up? The name Cannon Fodder suggests elements of war and strategy, and since Sensible Software are try ing to build on the success of their previous game. Sensible Soccer, a game about food may not be their best step.
In reality, there isn't a sniff of Curly Wurlys or oranges, and more than a hint of blood and death.
Cannon Fodder is an arcade game, yes. But one which involves you taking a troop of five soldiers through 12 war-style missions.
AUGUST 1993 You take control of the men using _ your mouse, and the screen follows you m around the terrain. The highest rank- M ing soldier leads the pack, or you can M split the team into several sub-groups and control each one separately. The other groups don't move, but they do automatically defend themselves w hen attacked.
Alongside the enemies, lying in wait for your soldiers are a plethora of obstacles, including snares, traps, mines and holes in bridges (which caused much hilarity in the Sensible office as I innocently led my five-man team to an untimely end via a hole in a rope bridge).
Sense and sensibility Although Sensible Software's first game was officially Parallax for the Commodore 64, Jon Hare had previously worked on several games for the Spectrum including Skytox and Flyer Fox for EA. After scoring a hit with the brilliant Wlzball, the team turned their hands to other projects including the god-game Mega- Lo-Manla (AF26 - 91 per cent), and the completely loopy sequel to Wlzball called Wlzkld (Am - 93 per cent). Although Wlzkld was raved over by the computer press, the game didn't sell very well at all - a mystery for such a great game.
Sensible's biggest success story to date, however, is Sensible Soccer (AF36 - 91 per cent) - to date it has sold over 120,000 copies on Amiga alone. Now developing Soccer for other platforms. Sensible Software look set to go from strength to strength.
Fortunately you can always find something to help you. Whether it be crates of grenades or rockets, or vehicles such as a jeep, tank, skibob. Snow tank, or a helicopter - simply hijack them and use them. Some missions also require you to locate civilians and rescue them, and to make sure they don't get hurt.
The missions are split into five different terrain styles - Jungle. Desert. Arctic. Enemy Base (underground), and what Stoo. The artist, describes as 'Emmerdalc Farm'. Each terrain brings a different type of enemy, including cannibals with a cooking pot. Eskimos who make holes in the ice for fishing, gunslingers who can turn on you at the drop of a hat. A mcths addict, rats, exploding sheep and booby- trapped seals.
According to Jools. The latter two enemies work in a similar way: "You will see lots of seals lying on an ice floe. If you walk up to them, they will all jump into the water apart from one. Which explodes on closer inspection." Er. Yes.
The sound effects suit each terrain style, and are amazingly lifelike and clear - especially the jungle sounds, with parrots and crickets creating a really eerie atmosphere. As you move nearer the source of the sound, the
t. effects gel louder, which is a neat touch. The sampled effects
for the weapons and soldiers also add a lot to the atmosphere
- these are some of the best sound effects I've heard from a
computer game.
On a more serious note I asked Jon Hare. Sensible Software's top man. What, if anything. Cannon Fodder is based on: "It's based on all wars ever." He says. "We're not concentrating on a particular war because it's meant to be an antiwar thing."
This is echoed by Stoo who says: "There's a danger if people buy it as a wargame.
Because the arcade elements come first." It's not all trivial, though, because at the end of every mission you gel a roll of honour for those soldiers who survived, and a memorial list of those who died, naming each one in turn. This actually makes you feel guilty, and the onus is on you to make the others survive the next mission.
To find out what Cannon Fodder is like for yourself you'll have to wait until September, when it will be released through Virgin Games. I can't wail. 'If emm |P|

Great fun..." 85% PC Home WufcPMCft 3D modelling is one of the most exciting areas of computer graphics.
From enthusiast to professional, hobby to industry, the Amiga has the subject sewn up. Find out how it's done in our 10 page guide... FIRST PRINCIPLES Get this straight - current screen displays cannot show you a real 3D picture. The closest you can get at present is the W Industries Virtuality system, which sends a slightly different picture to each eye. Instead, computers like the Amiga display a two dimensional image of three dimensional models. Think of it as taking a photograph - photos are 2D. But they show images of the real world.
Two dimensions are built up on an XY grid, but inside the computer, three dimensions (X. Y and Z - depth) are used for start off as a solid block, which is gradually refined to a complex, finished shape. Obviously, it takes time to get the models as detailed as possible.
The quality of models is mostly In the hands of the modeller - but some programs have better tools than oth ers for shaving a simple brick with six corner points into something like this car with hundreds of thousands of individual points. Also, a model's complexity depends on how much computer memory is available to store the points. Another common frames of reference.
Computer models usually £ name for model Is first create your 3D 'object'. This is designed series of points which make a wireframe.
AUGUST 1993 This model of a Dodge Viper was created by the guys at Foundation Imaging in Valencia, California. If you missed our feature on them and their work on Babylon S in last months issue, get hold of it now.
STAGING Right, got some 3D models - you now need to position them relative to each other in 3D space. This may seem a daunting task, (imagine placing all the tower blocks in New York precisely) but most people find it easier than the actual model creation.
The reason for this is that most real world man-made objects have a lot of common components - think of all the nuts and bolts in a car. Or all the windows on a house.
All 3D modelling programs have facilities to replicate models spaced evenly along a line.
Here's an example - Stonehenge. You wouldn't need to create every single individual stone and lintel to make a 3D model of It.
Instead, you would do one stone and one lintel. By repeating all the stones around a circle, and then laying a circle of lintels on top. A computer could produce a stage of the whole stone circle quite quickly. Of course, for that modern look, you would want to misplace a lew toppled stones.
One subject we haven't made clear yet is scale. When you create your models, usually they are done on their own true to life scales.
When you start creating a scene, however, you can scale models up or down. So you can have giant sized matchsticks or miniature spaceships.
The computer really doesn't mind - size is. After all, relative. However, be aware that the larger an object it is and the closer the viewpoint is to It. The more detail it needs in order to look realistic.
Complex models ton be cootprfsed of mony individual elemeals.
Rfj 3D DBAPfVTCft WAL SURFACE PROPERTIES The colour of the light rays bouncing around a scene depend on what they hit. Of course, what they hit is just as Important to the final picture. Most 3D programs allow you to alter the look of the objects. The simplest way to do this is to wrap an IFF picture file around the object.
For instance, for a wooden object, you would obtain a woody, grained IFF. And then wrap it around an object. If you wanted lots of individual wooden objects, you ysFJTT ' T ~r would need quite a few different IFF f! wood pictures to wrap around them.

Ml ___ rJl Some software lets you change the j I texture of an object; rough or smooth.

And the fact remains that with just the In order to render your object you must give its right picture to wrap around an object, surfaces qualities like colour and texture. Almost any surface is possible.
One final subject about surfaces is mathematical shading techniques. Phong shading is a maths equation that is used to give a curved, smoothed surface to part of a model that isn't really rounded or regular at all.
Different shading techniques save a lot of work when designing models.
SOLID VS SURFACE There are two broad groups of 3D modelling software. Solid modellers deal with whole objects. When building a model, you take a block of material, and cut, drill and chop it to the right size, using a set of software tools. Solid modellers are usually very good at producing curved edges, but as a result they are usually a bit slow.
Surface modellers only deal with the skin of an object. They prefer dealing with straight lines, edges and polygons. One byproduct of this is that they are usually faster than solid modellers at creating models, but suffer quite a lot when trying to produce curves. With shading techniques like Phong, these problems can be worked around - but solid modellers still have the upper hand in producing acceptable, natural looking objects.
With sophisticated, very up-to-date programs like Real 3D 2 or Imagine 2, you would be hard pressed to tell which program produced which image. However, when you are actually creating 3D pictures and animations, you have to be aware of the advantages and limitations of the two different types of software.

Movie IT'S NOT SURPRISING, given the Amiga's reputation as the graphics and video computer, that most of the winners at Bit.Movie have been created on the Amiga. It's even less surprising when you take a look at the list of entries. More than 400 works of computer art were submitted for evaluation this year, and of those over 300 were Amiga works. You and I know how great the Amiga is for painting, for ray-tracing and for animation in both 2 and 3D. But the Bit.Movie festival gives the rest of the world a chance to marvel at the wonders the Amiga is capable of.
Every year the town of Riccione in northern Italy hosts one of the world's most prestigious computer art festivals. Take a trip with us and see how well the Amiga fared at... Nippon Riory Ten came top in the 3D static image category. It was created by Saponi Allessandro. The panel of judges particularly liked the contrast between elements of fiction and reality, and the mixture of items from both the future and the past. We like it because it is superbly modelled and superbly rendered.
And wondrous is the only way to describe these work's. To win a prize at Bit.Movie a work must not be merely excellent, it must have that added extra ingredient that distinguishes great art from visual drivel. And.
Perhaps the most difficult test of all. It must appeal to the public too.
Bit.Movie is held annually in the Italian town of Riccione. This year's festival, the sixth, was held over the Easter holidays in April. During the five-day period of the exhibition over 6.000 fans of computer art attended the show. Three thousand of them filled out ballot forms, and it is from these that the w inners have been chosen.
The Awards are split into six categories: 2D images. 2D animations. 3D images. 3D animations. Videos created on a personal computer and videos created on a graphics workstation.
The Amiga has shown strongly in all of the five categories it is eligible for. But as part of this ray-tracing special feature we are interested mainly in the 3D categories. The Amiga's domination in these groups is as strong as in the other. Most of the entries have been rendered using Imagine 2. W ith Real M) making the occasional appearance too.
The winner in the 3D still category is Nippon Riory Ten. Pictured above. The image was rendered on an Amiga 3(XX) using Imagine 2 The render took four hours, which is amazing when you look at the detail the picture contains. Especially when you consider that it was rendered to a resolution of 2.048 x 1.366 pixels. The resulting bitmap was retouched using AOPro and even the humble Deluxe Paint.
OBAMVrCf Hit.Movie is an excellent opportunity for the Amiga to do what it does best - graphics - and do it in public. If the Amiga is to continue being taken seriously, events like this are to he encouraged and supported. If you're a graphics »i . Start getting your entries ready for next year's competition. Here at AMIGA Formal we'll be keeping an eye on developments in the run up to Bit.Movie 94. If Do your bit for Bit.Movie '94 The images on these pages are the finest the ones that a panel of expert critics and an interested public chose from the hundreds of entries. If you can do this
well, or better, why not enter Bit.Movie 1994?
In this 10-page 3D graphics special feature we show you what 3D ray-tracing is all about, and last month we demonstrated how to do animation. In fact Roddy McMillan, author of last month's animation tutorial, picked up fifth prize at this year’s Bit.Movie, so you have had lessons from one of the best. Put It all Into practice, and get drawing and rendering. Next year, let’s give 'em something to look at in Rlccione.
At the '93 festival there have been 111 entries from Italy. 18 from America, 11 from Germany, but only 7 from Great Britain.
Let’s not get a reputation as people who draw as badly as we play sport.
If you have what it takes, Bit.Movie '94 offers you two opportunities to gain fame.
The first is to enter the competition for the 'Placard Image' for next year's festival.
This image, which will be used in advertising for the event, must be 1,024 by 1,024 pixels in size, and be a computer created graphic In some way related to the event. It shouldn't contain the words Bit.Movie, nor should It contain the signature of the artist These will be added by the festival's designer. Send your images to the address below by 31 October 1993.
The other way to make your impression at Bit.Movie '94 is to enter the event itself. If you are interested you can get a set of rules, by writing to: BIT.MOVIE '94 c o Carlo Mainardl Via Bologna 13 47036 RICCIONE, ITALY The closing date for entries is 31 January 1994 and the festival itself is going to be held from 31 March until 4 April 1994.
We'll be bringing more news of the event in the coming months, and we'll be reporting on next year's festival from Rlccione itself!
Oft PJJlCS dPMAL ¦ Rumours abound on what Imagine 3 will contain, but it's likely to try and regain ground lost to Real 3D2."
AVAILABLE FROM: MERIDIAN SOFTWARE (081-543 3500) 5269.95 Vista has had a long, distinguished history as one of the best 3D fractal landscape generators, and the latest version carries on this tradition, with a host of new features. Vista Pro 3 can produce stunning 24-bit images of landscapes for use as backdrops in 3D creations. Version 3 can draw realistic 3D trees on landscapes, add roads and buildings and create animations of these landscapes, which could be combined with a ray traced animation.
Vista Is capable of saving the landscapes as Turbo Silver objects, which can be loaded by Imagine, or converted to other formats by Pixel 3D.
These objects can look blocky, but all the colour attributes are preserved, so with a bit of judicious retouching, they can look realistic.
Aay section of a Ws o Pra landscape can be saved out as a Turbo Silver object... ...which can be loaded into Imagine, or converted by Pixel 3D Pro (above) to a number of other formats.
IMAGINE HAS BKKN a favourite with the 3D community since its release in 1991. The previous program from Impulse (Turbo Silver) had been widely regarded as very powerful, but extremely unfriendly. This, and other problems. Were addressed with a redesign of the interface, and a rewrite of the rendering engine.
Imagine is divided into five sections: the project editor (overall control of the rendering process), detail editor (where objects arc created and modified), forms editor (for creating symmetrical objects), cycle editor (for creating regular motions in objects such as walking or flying), stage editor (where objects and lights arc placed in an environment) and the action editor, where the movement of objects and any special effects are determined.
This sounds complex, but overall it makes it an easy program to use. This is fortunate, because the manuals are terrible, with no sign of an index. This is unfortunate since many of the best aspects of the program arc a little difficult to use. Such as the brush and texture mapping. The only alternative is to gel Steven Worley's excellent book Understanding Imagine 2 (Alternative Image - 0533 440041).
Which explains all aspects of the program in a readable and casy-to-undcrstand manner.
Objects in Imagine are composed of points, and the edges and faces between them. You can automatically generate a number of primiImagine 2 AVAILABLE FROM : DMS (0702 206165) El 17.50 Vista Pro 3 tive objects such as spheres and disks, and this is often the best place to start when building an object. A variety of tools for manipulating the individual points or the overall object are available, including extruding, skin, conforming to sphere, and Imagine can even load in IFF images and convert them into 3D objects.
The combination of the detail editor and the forms editor make creating objects easy, although really complex models can take ages to redraw, even on a fast system. For instance, the model of the Enterprise on this month's cover (see how we did the cover on page 35) is over 1.6Mb in size, and contains several hundred thousand points. This takes over a minute to redraw, but fortunately once the model is complete, you can set it to just draw a box outline of the model, which makes placing the objects in the stage editor much easier.
Imagine is blessed with some excellent animation facilities, including key frame and path based movements. The cycle editor is extremely good for creating actions which repeat, such as the legs when walking or the wings when flying, and once this action has been defined.
It can be set to run automatically.
Rendering time varies with the mode used and the complexity of the object, but as a rule it's pretty fast, and the program can generate in all of the normal Amiga screen modes as well as at user- defined resolutions and aspect ratios for use on 24-bit frame buffers such as the Retina and OpalVision card. Imagine 2 has also recently been bundled with the OpalVision card.
It has been a long lime since the last major upgrade of Imagine, and rumours abound as to what Imagine 3 will contain, and when it will appear. Impulse have a policy of not discussing programs that haven't been released, but it is likely they will be trying to recapture some of the ground lost to Real 3D 2. It's unlikely that it will he available before the autumn, and even this date is optimistic.
3D round-up AUGUST 1993 Draw 4D is extellent for produting 3D images whifh involve extruding text in a 3D fashion.
Caligari was the first true rendering and modelling program on the Amiga, but it never quite got the popular following that programs such as Imagine or Real 3D attracted. It's undoubtedly an extremely powerful program, with a wide range of features and model manipulation tools. It also has probably the best user interface of all the programs, with easy object manipulation and a viewpoint which allows you to really plan the scene. Il avoids Ihe usual tri-plan view by giving a perspective view of the scene from the viewpoint of the camera.
Unlike other programs, when you move the viewpoint, the screen is updated in real time, as the objects are represented only by bounding boxes. However, the problem of losing much of the detail on the objects is far outweighed by the benefit of being able to see Ihe changes in real time. There's also several useful tricks such as a quick render mode, which means that you can gel a preview of the scene in a few seconds.
Rendering with Caligari is extremely quick, especially on an accelerated machine. However, it doesn't use true ray tracing, so reflections have to be simulated using bitmap and colour mapping on to the surface of the object. Despite this, with care and planning. It is capable of producing high-quality realistic results.
Caligari has never really got the recognition it deserved as a powerful and very easy-to-use program. However, it's recently been given something of a new lease by its inclusion with 24-bit graphics cards such as GVP's IV-24 version 2. When allied with the quality of image you get with 16 million colour images displayed on a 24-bit graphics card, it's capable of producing some excellent results.
Caligari 2 AVAILABLE FROM: CALIGARI CORPORATION (010 415 390 9600) $ 500 Claymation AVAILABLE FROM : TRILOGIC (0274 691 115) ETBA Several years ago, Martin Hash wrote a program called Animation: Journeyman. This was capable of producing some excellent results, but it's control method and interface was a little. Well, odd and rather difficult to get used to.
Since then. Martin has been working on a new program, and the result is Claymation.
This has been out on the PC and Mac for months, but now lie's moved on lo producing a proper version for a machine that's really designed for 3D work (ie - the Amiga).
Most programs deal with objects as a series of points and edges, with the faces inbetween.
However. Claymation takes a completely different approach, in that the surface of an object is delined by a series of quadratic equations.
Producing the image is then a question of running these equations through the rendering program, which calculates the surfaces from them. This means that it’s very easy to produce organic looking objects, which has always been a problem with programs that use point and edge modelling.
This also means that manipulating objects is easy, because you don’t have lo drag individual points. If. For instance, you wanted lo increase the size of the nose of a 3D model of a face, you would only need to grab the nose and pull it out. Unfortunately, the program arrived too late to be reviewed, but expect a full review sometime over the next few months.
Lightwave3D AVAILABLE FROM: NEWTEK (OIOI 354 1146) $ 1,899 (WITH FREE VIDEO TOASTER) First oft the good news: Llghlwave3D is an excellent 3D rendering and animation program, as anyone who's seen any of Todd Rundgren's, Nutopla's, or Ron Thornton's work (to name but a few) will testify.
The bad news: It's only available as part of NewTek's Video Toaster - which of course makes it of little practical value to most of us who live In the non-NTSC world.
I truly wish this weren't the case, since I find Lightwave one of the easiest-to-use animation packages on the Amiga, and it would probably be my first choice were it not for the fact that I now generally have an OpalVision card in the video slot of my Amiga instead of a Toaster, and that it only outputs In NTSC-size formats.
Now down to business. Lightwave has a fairly long evolution previous to the Toaster, having begun life as Videoscape3D, one of the first 3D programs on the Amiga. Its author, Allen Hastings, has consistently stuck with the Amiga over the years and the fruits of his labours have recently culminated in the release of Lightwave 3 (available with the new Toaster 4000), which I have yet to see.
One aspect of this past history is revealed by the fact that Lightwave can load objects designed in Videoscape format, another in that Lightwave's accompanying modelling package, Modeler, bears more than a passing resemblance to the old Modeler 3D program.
The great thing about Lightwave Is the ease with which animations can be choreographed - simply set up a series of key frames in the layout editor and place the actors, lights and camera where you want them in each key frame, then let the program do the rest. Each ‘tween’ will be calculated from the key frames and the frames rendered accordingly. You can even construct a wireframe preview and play It back to check how the work is coming along. Moving the objects around Is achieved with little more than a few mouse moves, and the camera (and light s) can easily be made to track any object -
and even change targets on key frames.
A whole range of effects is also available - right from texture mapping to fog, and particle systems to time-based effects called 'envelopes', all of which means that some amazing effects can be achieved.
In fact, each individual part of an object (and that could be quite a few) can have separate attributes such as smoothing, reflectivity, colour and mapping type attached to it.
Personally I've never been able to get along with the Modeler software (right from the old Modeler 3D days), and I still prefer to use Imagine (see previous page) to make objects and then convert them for use with Lightwave, but judging by many of the complex creations flying around in Lightwave animations I’m probably out on a Draw 4D Pro AVAILABLE FROM: VARIOUS SOURCES El 70 (APPROX) rtj 9m mmjmsuc* jwsclal, limb on this one. But there's no doubt about it - Lightwave and Modeller (and ot course the Video Toaster) make a very powerful combination. Perhaps the rest ot the Amiga world will be
able to use it one day.
C-Light Cary Whiteley O Sometimes, you don't need all of the power of a ray tracing program such as Imagine.
All you need is to be able to create a bit of 3D text, or a simple object with some 3D extrusion for use in a DTP document, or as part of another image. This is what Draw ¦II) was designed to do.
Much like Caligari. The designers avoided the more common tri view of the object, and went for a perspective view.
This means that it's easier to see the overall shape of the object, and how it will appear when finally rendered. There's a wide range of tools for building the objects with the usual spin and extrude facilities. It's heavily biased towards working with text, and includes the rather weird ability to extrude from an object in the shape of any letter of the alphabet. It sounds rather strange, but it is extremely useful in the right circumstances. Once you've produced your object and rendered your image, you can save it as either an IFF image or in Professional Page clip art format.
Draw -ID is a very capable program, but it s only really useful in a very specific set of circumstances. If you're wanting to create 3D text for use in DTP or video, it's quick and easy. Unfortunately, it's not much good for other purposes, because the output options are limited, to say the least.
However, if this is what you want, it's a very powerful program, and it's much faster than using a ray tracing program.
This is definitely the cheap alternative, because it's in the Public Domain, which means you can get a copy from a friend for nothing, or for a couple of quid from any good PD library. The author (Ronald A Peterson! Originally wrote it with the intention of producing a commercial product. But after several bad experiences with publishers he decided to make it available as PD.
It's divided into two parts, with one for creating the models and building the scene, and the other for carrying out the processing and creating the image. All of the basic tools that you would expect (such as creating primitives like balls and cubes and adding multicoloured light sources! Are present, but there are none of the more complex point or surface manipulation tools found on other programs. You can scale the objects in all three dimensions. But you can’t alter them beyond this. However, it is possible with a little patience, to create some good objects using only these shapes.
Once you've created the scene, you save it as a file and run the second program ('Light II) which renders the image and saves it out as an IFF file. It's by no means the quickest or most powerful 3D program (the demo image shown here took over an hour to render on an A3IKKI!. But if you're interested in 3D modelling and ray tracing, it's a great introduction at little or no expense.
BITMAP TO VECTOR CONVERTER ALTERNATIVE IMAGE (0533 440041) £160 There are a wide variety of ready made 3D models available for the programs reviewed here, but none of the programs can read those produced In other programs. Unless you've a copy of Pixel 3D that is... Pixel 3D is a program which can load In an object created in Lightwave 3D, 3D Pro, Turbo Silver, Autocad, Imagine, Sculpt 3D or Videoscape 3D and save It out to any other of these formats. It will load any IFF and convert It into a 3D object and while converting it can also spin the object (giving you a spiral object), add
bevelling on the edge and smooth the object to a varying degree. Although this will have most relevance for high resolution, two colour images (for creating logos), It makes a good job of images with more colours, If you fancy adding a stained glass window to your scene.
It's currently in Its second incarnation, with several Improvements over the version that was reviewed way back in issue 25. The speed of processing has been improved, and includes a version specially 3D Textures AVAILABLE FROM: ALTERNATIVE IMAGE (OS33 440041) £40 Creating beautiful objects is all very well, but how do you make them look realistic? Many programs in this feature include textures that can be applied to objects to simulate various materials, but you can't beat the real world can you?
The best thing to do is take some of the real world, in the form of a digitised 24-bit image. Unfortunately, producing images suitable for this requires an expensive digitiser and a lot of time. Fortunately. Alternative Image have already done this, and have produced two volumes of textures suitable for use with any of the programs in this review. Apparently, when Henri Bujiko goes on holiday he doesn't bother w ith the usual snaps, but instead photographs any objects with interesting colours or textures. When he gets back to the office, he digitises them in 16 million colours, and the
result is these two volumes of textures.
Each set contains 12 disks, and each disk has a specific texture or image. Subjects range from marble to sand to underwater rocks. They are all in four formats: a standard HAM image, a 256 colour version, a monochrome version suitable for use w ith bump mapping and a full 24-bit version.
AUGUST 1993 These disks are only of use to someone w ho's seriously into ray tracing. They are quite expensive, but if you need to do an animation quickly, this could ho an extremely useful resource to have handy. Now all we need is for Alternative Image to bring out both volumes on CD... designed for use on accelerated Amigas. Unfortunately. There are still a few bugs and it’s not the friendliest program I've ever used.
If you're regularly wanting to use objects in several different programs, or wanting to have more of a degree of control over converting IFF images than programs such as Imagine offer, Pixel 3D 2 is well worth checking out. However, It is extremely expensive for such a utility.
IF YOU WANT u model ihe world. God jokes aside, there arc a few features that you must have. Every decent 3D system since Sculpt 3D has given you reasonable modelling tools, surface textures, adjustable light sources, realistic ray-traced rendering and animation. And much more. These features are now the norm. Using such tools, a flood of fantastic images and animations has poured from our Amigas over the last nine years If (as we all suspect) God plays Populous on His Day of Rest, REAL 3D is what He must have been using for the rest of the week.
On the other hand, as a mere mortal, Brian Larkman just gets creative with... Animating with Real 3 This image illustrates the powerful new features of Real 30 2. It took over 24 hours to render on a 33MHz Amiga 030. Overall, there is a depth of field effect. The light source is a rectangle and light samples are set to one, so the shadows hove soft edges.
All of the objects except the blue pyramid ore B-Spline mesh objects that render with no sign of faceting at the edges (see especially the red bangle) and superior mapping, but they are cause the slow render.
The pyramid is spinning just off its main axis and it has a motion blur Attribute.
Brilliant as these images are. For an artist the lack of subtlety in many of them, is quite troubling. Often the best art comes from manipulating the soft edges of any medium, the smears and smudges, the overlays and washes, the after-images, the soli focus.
In animation also, apart from the work of a lew gifted professional animators who instinctively know about manually blurring the edges of animation, subtly 'casing' movements in and out. The motion paths used can he quite robotic and mechanical looking. Although expensive high-end 3D systems can produce these effects, lew affordable desktop machines could cope - soft edges and realistic motion need lots of power.
The arrival of Real 3D 2. Reviewed in Amiga Formal 46. Has changed all of this because, as well as blended textures, soft shadows, depth of field, and atmospheric effects, it offers realistic animation control. Most of the new modelling and rendering tools were discussed in the review, so for this feature it's time for an animated discussion.
RIAL 3D VERSION 2 was reviewed in AFAb and is available from Alternative Image on 0533 440041 Although this all refers to Real 3D. The principles were developed over the past 10 years for high-end animation systems and used for computer graphic effects in Hollywood films and TV adverts. As computer power improves, these techniques will become commonplace on home computers - Real 3D is jusi the beginning!
The best animators learn their craft by watching ihe real world, observing the minute changes of speed and direction that distinguish realistic motion from mechanical movement.
Without spending a lifetime learning this an.
The only way to make animation look real is to give the objects real properties - mass, shape, friction, gravity, wind speed, collisions, applied forces. All of these and more can be programmed into Real 3D objects. Once a force is applied, your animation will roll, slide or collide, jusi like objects do when they're in Ihe real world.
Real 3D 2 applies its properties and animation effects in the same way it produces materials and textures, by including them in Ihe object's hierarchy - one of those classically simple ideas. All of the animation types arc provided as pseudo objects called OBRKITCf JNCAI Methods. These will affect any real modelled objects placed at the same level in the hierarchy with them.
A Real object can therefore be modelled, its material qualities added - surface texture, transparency, and so on. And then even its type of motion - walking, rolling, pulsing - tacked into the hierarchy. This produces a complete entity that can be saved, duplicated, and used repeatedly, acted upon by other forces just like a real creature, plant or machine. This way Real si) 2 gives you true object oriented programming at work! 'Zf If our object comes in contact with other objects there should be a reaction. This comes under the Interactive Collision Method. The classic example of this is a
bowling alley - the alley floor has a moss to prevent it from being moved by the boll or pins. Gravity is set to a standard amount for the scene using a Directed Force Method, and an Int Collision Method will control all of the collisions and ensure that the ball and pins will react correctly.
Next a volue for friction is added to both the alley floor and the ball to make the ball rotate rather than skid down towards the pins. Finally, the ball is given a velocity vector to propel it along the alley. If you stort it off about half a metre above the alley so that it crashes down and bounces the simulation of the average player will be complete.
For the final render, if you do one, the pins and ball can be given motion blur using the Attributes Requester. The final effect is amazing from such a simple animation, ond shows the immense power of this system.
Real 30's ability to give objects real properties acted upon by applied forces such as gravity or wind speed can only work because each object has a 'life' of Its own. If you duplicate an object, each copy can be set off on its own journey, interacting with the other 'clones' and with the world around It. This technigue is called 'particle' animation or 'flocking'. In Real 3D 2 it is developed beyond this to animate full objects with their own built-in 'character'.
A range of forces can act on these objects. The simplest is a Radial Force of attraction or repulsion. Given a volue, this can be the basis for a simulation of gravity, with all objects affected equally. Using the Directed Force Method, a line can be added beneath the method in the hierarchy that represents the direction of the force. If the line is curved, tha force varies over time, simulating turbulence. Adding a Tangential Force Method will make a 'flock' of objects break away from each other as they rotate. Here a 'flock' of legs are spun away from their circular dance by this
tangential force.
AUGUST 1993 A complex problem of any animation is making characters move convincingly. Real 3D 2 uses several methods to control this including Sweep, Skeleton, and Inverse Kinematics.
Sweep usually controls a limb swinging around a pivot point.
A Skeleton is a simple object that con be manipulated easily, but which controls the movement of a more complex object. On other 3D systems this tokes the form of simple straight lines that act as stick figures controlling the full anatomy of a body for example. Real 3D Skeletons can be B-Spline lines that will bend allowing beautifully articulated limbs. Imagine animating an Octopus for exomplel Even worse, Imagine one tentacle pressing a button. The Inverse Kinematics Method allows the tip of a finger or limb to be positioned independently, dragging the rest of its limb with it. This
technique is powerful, especially with the Skeleton Method. The only thing it needs is a way to limit movement so that arms cannot be bent back unconvincingly.
Objects, like cors ond planes, following a path often need to point along it. The Direction Method tokes core of this. This Fish Slog not only points along the path, it deforms to follow h. Variations include Move&Dh Method which allows separate Move and direct paths, and Control Curve Method with 2 control curves.
Imagine dropping an effervescent tablet into a glass of water. Theoretically the tablet hitting tbe water should create a circular wave, ond a splash, sink to the bottom, start to fill sending bubbles to the surface, rock-and-roll a bit then rise to the surfoce to dissolve away.
All of this is probably possible with Real 3D, though making the water react to the tablet may be difficult. There Is a Wave Method thot could be timed to produce suitable radial waves. A Directed Force Method, (or maybe a Friction TAG) could be used to slow the tablet's fall in the water and its wobble as it sinks. At the bottom, a Creation Method could create babbles that grow and rise, similar to the ones illustrated here for boiling water. Finally the tablet could pop to tbe surfoce along a Path and dissolve with a Size Method.

"Maelstrom" is a trademark owned by EPICENTER North Finchley, London N12 ODA Tel. 081-343 7337 I * ©1993 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Covering the magazine This month's stunning 3D cover illustration was produced using Amigas.
Richard Baguley takes you through the process of creating the final image.
THE FIRST STEP in producing this cover wav lo produce a design, showing what sort of images would he used, and how they would fit together This was done by Marcus Dyson (editor) and Sue White tart editor). This design called for a variety of objects to he fly ing around the central thetne of the cover, the letters 3D. W hich were to be ray traced The first thing we did was to create the two letters as objects, and ray traced them. A two colour high resolution IFF image of these was produced using the appropriate text font, and this was convened into an Imagine object bv using the program
Pixel M This scans the IFF image and creates a llal object from it.
This was then extruded to create a complete 3D object, which was loaded into Imagine and rendered in 24-bit colour at a resolution of
1. 832 x 1,125.
A quick check through the Public Domain models available on the CIX Bulletin Board for the ray tracing program Imagine. And the objects supplied with the program gave four suitable models: a cow . A P51 mustang plane, a Porsche car. And the Starship Enterprise.
The Starship Enterprise was particularly interesting in that it alone took 1.6Mb of disk space. Produced by an American called Carmen Rizzolo. It is composed of 146 different pans and many thousands of points. There is an incredible amount of detail in this model, and it produces truly stunning images.
However, it requires vast amounts of memory to render, and needed the vinual memory program Gittttmem to give more memory to the accelerated A.3000 used to produce the images.
In the end. Rendering this model needed around 12 megabytes of memory .
Although the cover required these images to be flying around the 3D text, it would have been impractical to render all of the images in one scene, since this would have taken an incredible amount of time and memory.
Instead, each of the objects were rendered separately. And the 24-bit images produced were combined together to give the final version of the cover. Each of the separate illustrations is shown on this page.
Unfortunately, time constraints meant that the process of combining the images together was done on Marcus's Apple Mac. Which is based around a 68040 and has over 16Mb of memory on board. This machine was capable of carrying out the image compositing much quicker than the Amigas we use in the office.
However, there is absolutely no reason why an Amiga couldn't be used for this, since either ASDG's program Art Department Professional or GVP's ImageFX would have been capable of producing the final image. All of the images had been produced with backgrounds of one solid colour, which could be used as a transparency mask when compositing the images.
AUGUST 1993 .lust to prove that it can be done, the illustration of the cover (pictured above left) was produced completely on a 6Mb A3000 running Imagine. AdPro and Gigamem w ith a Retina graphics card used for viewing the 24-bit images. No other computers were used at all during this process. Now. Who says that Amigas aren't capable of producing professional quality images?

... THE PUBLISHER DTP T YPESMITH. FONT EDITOR
ALTHOUGH YOU MAY ihink lhal your Irusly Amiga is fast, the
truth is that it could gel faster. If you’re involved in
processor-intensive tasks like ray tracing or desktop
publishing, anything that cuts down on the several hours that
images can take to render, or the long lime spent waiting for
the screen lo redraw your latest DTP document are welcome.
Accelerators work by replacing the CPU (Central Processor Unit) with a faster or newer model, which can carry out the same operations faster and more efficiently. Many also come with a FPU (Floating Point Unit), which is a chip specially designed to do floating point maths extremely quickly.
We have set up a variety of tests to see w hat sort of speed increase you can expect from these cards. These include rendering an image in Imagine, drawing a Vista Pro i scene, and redrawing a page in ProPagr 4 which included Compugraphic fonts and a piece of ProPage clip art. The AI 111! Program is then run to measure the speed increase of the cards, which gives three figures showing the performance increase with integer mathematics, graphics handling and floating point maths.
To determine each card's value for money, we add the three AIBB performance figures and divide the total by the cost of the card, giving you an idea of w hat son of performance increase per pound you get.
This gives some interesting results, but bear in mind the price of a card when using this figure, because it's foolish to expect a faster 68000 to out perform a 68040-based model.
So. As you'd expect, the main consideration when you're looking for an accelerator is speed and how many times faster your machine is going to be after spending all that money and fitting the accelerator.
Unfortunately, it's not that simple. Many cards also come with other extras, such as SCSI (Small Computer Systems Interface) for attaching hard disks, tape streamers and flatbed scanners or custom slots for adding other peripherals such as graphics cards.
This will obviously affect the price of the card, so these accelerators are indicated with an asterisk (*) after the price performance ratio.
When you're looking for an accelerator to buy.
Don't forget that you'll need some extra memory to make the most of its extra power, since most accelerators have to slow down to talk to the memory already fitted inside your Amiga. How much memory should you buy? As much as possible... Acceler ALTHOUGH THE A500 has been overshadowed by the newer Amigas. There are still several million in use around the world, and accelerating them to catch up with the newer models is still a realistic option. Plus, the prices of accelerators have been falling over the past few months as more people move on to the A12(H) and A4(XX). So. Which accelerator is
the best?
CSA DERRINGER AVAILABLE FROM: OMEGA PROJECTS 0942 682203 £349.99 (25Mh . CPU and Co-Pro. 1Mb memory) £599.99 (SOMhz CPU and 25Mhz Co-Pro, 1Mb Memory) £799.99 (25Mhz CPU and SOMhz Co-Pro, 4Mb memory) - model reviewed Price Performance ratio: 41 What have Paul Newman, James Dean and Richard Baguley got in common - a need for speed that's what. OK, Rich doesn't want to hurl round Daytona at 200mph, instead he's taking nine Amiga accelerators for a group test over the next four pages... Go faster stripes This accelerator is basically an updated version of the Mega Midget Racer, which was
favourably reviewed way back in AFT 8. It's based around a full 68030. Running at either 25 or SOMhz. A co-processor can also be fitted, running at a different speed.
AUGUST 1993 The board fits inside the A500 case, sitting in the 68IXX) socket. This chip is then reseated on the board, and you can reboot w ith the 68000 in control by running a program that's provided with the board. Also included are a couple of utilities, and a small patch program which must be put into the start-up sequence to add the 32-bit memory to the system. This is in the form of a single SIMM (single In-line Memory Module), fitted in a single slot on the edge of the board, so you can add a maximum of 8Mb of 32-bit fast memory to the system.
As with most of the other cards, a program designed to be put into the start-up sequence sets up various options for the card, including adding the memory to the system and copying the kickstart ROM into 32-bit memory. Software is also supplied lo test the RAM. Check the speed increase and to reboot the machine with the original 68000 in control.
This is a well built board, and has performed very well in our tests, understandably only falling behind, the GVP A530 and the Progressive 040 card. It cooperates well w ith other peripherals like external hard disks, and is a good way of speeding up your A500.
(ferdic) 85% WSEMjP' _ ating the A500 TURBO 28 AVAILABLE FROM: FIRST CHOICE COMPUTER CENTRE 0532 319444 £129.99 Price Performance ratio: 77 This model is Supra's first venture into the world of accelerators. It's based around a 68000 running at 28Mhz. Which takes control from the 7. L4Mh model fitted as standard to the A500. Although the rest of the machine still runs at the normal speed, the accelerator has a I6K memory cache which it can read data from at the higher speed. So. If you're running small programs or small sections of code, the processor can copy this to the faster memory,
giving an apparent speed increase. It works with most programs, but if you come across any programs that don't like it (such as games), you can turn the accelerator off by either flicking a switch or running a program from Workbench which slows the processor down to normal speed. There's no need to reboot, and it’s completely invisible to software.
This accelerator works with most peripherals, since it includes a through port for the A500 edge connector. However, it does have trouble with CiVP hard drives with ROM versions prior to J.12. because these drives attempt to transfer data directly to memory without informing the processor, which means that the processor's cache memory is not the same as the contents of the Amiga's memory. For these earlier models, a ROM upgrade will be needed. Models w ith later versions of the ROM will need the accelerator to be running at 7.l4Mhz. but adding two extra lines to the start-up sequence will
automatically turn the accelerator on.
The A500 version includes a pass through socket, allow ing you to put it between the Amiga and the hard disk, and the A2000 version fits in the CPU slot inside the case.
If you're looking for an A500 accelerator and you are on a tight budget, this gives a decent speed increase for the price. However, if you can afford it, you'd be well advised to consider investing in another, faster card.
OVP A530 AVAILABLE FROM: SIUCA SYSTEMS 081 -309 Till £499 40Mhz CPI!, 1Mb RAM. 42Mb hard disk) £699 (120Mb I Price Performance ratio: JO* If you're looking ol buying on accelerator and hord disk, then look no further!
This offering from GVP is more than just an accelerator. It’s an all-in-one expansion package for the A500.
As well as the 40Mhz 68030 and optional 68882 FPU.
It includes a fast SCSI controller and a choice of sizes of hard disk from 42Mb to a gargantuan 120Mb. We reviewed it in A 38. And awarded it 94 per cent and a Formal Gold. Since then, the price has dropped significantly. And a 42Mb model now only costs £499.
Only I Mb of memory is fitted as standard, and there are only two SIMM slots, which means that you will have to get rid of your existing SIMMs if you want to expand it beyond 2Mb. Up to 8Mb of RAM can be fitted by using 4Mb SIMMs.
Space lor an FPU is built into the board, and this runs at the same clock speed as the CPU (40Mhz). And would give a significant speed increase with programs that use this chip. Further expansion is possible through a custom expansion slot, although the only thing presently available for this is a 286 PC emulator, which w ill only cost you £99.
GVP have promised further cards for this slot, but these have not yet appeared. Speedwise. It's second only to Progressive Peripherals' 68040 accelerator (next review). The only major criticism is when you want to use software that won't run with the 68030.
You have to turn off the accelerator with the button on the front of the drive. The problem with this is that you also turn off all the expansion memory and the hard disk interface. An option to turn off the accelerator. But keep the hard disk interface going would have been nice, but there you go.
The A5.30 is an excellent way of expanding your A500 if you've not already invested in a hard disk or memory expansion, and the option of PC emulation for only 99 quid is worth considering. Give it a program that uses the extra power of the faster CPU and optional FPU. And it doesn't hang around either.
PROGRESSIVE PERIPHERAL 'S 040-500 AVAILABLE FROM: MICRO-PACE 0753 551888 £1.099 Price Performance ratio: 71 This, not surprisingly, is the fastest of the A500 accelerators. It's also the most expensive. Based around a JSMhz 68040. It gives vast speed increases when you're working in a ray trace or desktop publishing program. However, the raw power of the 68040 chip is rather held back by the rest of the machine, which still runs at the slower speed.
39 The board can hold either 4 or 8Mb of fast memory'. In the form of ZIP chips soldered on to the board, so it's not really possible to expand it yourself, unless you're extremely handy with a soldering iron. The memory' is automatically added to the system at bootup. Although a couple of small patch programs are included to gel the most out of the 68040. This is a rather large chip, and it does get very hot. So a small fan is fitted over it. This is powered from an extension to the floppy power cable, but it still gels rather warm after a couple of hours.
AUGUST 1993 A Kickstart 2 ROM is also built on to the board, as you can’t use a 68040 with Kickstart I..3. You can switch back to Kickstart 1.3 and the 68000 (which is mounted on the board) by using a switcher program which is included, so you could use it as a very expensive ROM sw itcher if you wanted to.
This is very fast card, but for the price you could upgrade to a A4000 030. But if you’re attached to your A500 and want to add a bit of zoom to the machine, this is the fastest A500 accelerator available on the market.
Although this is by a long chalk the fastest A500 accelerator on the market, there really isn't much point in spending this amount of money on an accelerator. After all. If you need the extra power of a 68040. You'll probably want to add things like 24 bit cards, and the A500 isn't the most expandable machine in the world.
F 94% 85% erdic: 80% THE A1200 IS fast compared lo the A500.

Bul (hey arc very expensive, and arc only available by special request, as there's nol a lot of demand for them. This memory is auto-configuring. So there's no need to run any programs to add into (he system, and it will be available for any programs that need to boot from floppy.
A socket for an FPL' is fitted on the board.
MICROBOTICS MBX 1 AVAILABLE FROM: INDt DIRECT 0606 A3860 Price : £299.99 (0Mb. 40 Mhzl. £499.99 (4Mb. 50Mhz) Price Performance ratio: 56 Microbotics' accelerator comes in two models. Based on either a 40Mhz 680EC030 or a 50Mhz 68030. The review model has a 50Mhz 68030. It also includes a socket for a floating point unit, which can run at a different speed to the CPU.
A single SIMM socket is located on the underside of the card, taking one 32- bit SIMM, as found in the A4000. In theory, this could hold up to 128Mb of memory, but the biggest SIMM available at the moment is 16Mb. And this will cost you a small fortune.
With Workbench 3, this memory is not auto-configuring, and you need to run a program to add it to the system memory.
However, this is no great problem, since all you need to do is drag a single Icon into the WBStartup drawer, and the memory will be added to the systemwhen your machine boots up.
With forthcoming newer versions of Workbench and Kickstart, this will no longer be necessary, but until then, any program that boots from floppy disk won't be able to access the extra memory held on the accelerator unless this software patch is run.
Speedwise, it has a definite edge over but this can only be run at the same clock speed as the CPU (40Mh .l. Included with the accelerator is the usual software for switching back to the 68(120. Copying the Kickstart ROM into fast memory and testing the memory and other aspects of the board.
PEWiiSuv 86% the GVP card as Its based around a 50Mhz 68030, as against the 40Mhz one in the A1230. However, there is a cheaper model from Microbotics based around a 40Mhz 680EC030.
There is also a socket for a 68882 Floating Point Unit, which can run at a different speed to the CPU. So you could fit a cheaper 25Mhz chip, or a more expensive 50Mhz model.
Accelerating the A1500, A2000 and A3000 G-FORCE 040 A3000 AVAILABLE FROM: SILICA SYSTEMS (081-309 1111) £1.499 Price Performance ratio: 37 This is the only A3000 accelerator in this round-up, since it's already a fast machine.
Based on a 28Mhz 68040, it fits in the fast slot on the motherboard. Memory is added via eight SIMM slots, allowing a maximum of 8Mb to be fined. Fitting the card is a pain because of the design of the A3000. Not the card. To fit the card, you need to remove any expansion cards, disconnect both hard and floppy disks and disconnect the power supply from the motherboard. Fortunately, it's not an operation you need to carry out often, since software is included to switch back to the original 68030.
The 68040 chip gets hot. But a fan is fitted.
Even with this running, the board gets hot after several hours of use. However, it still works flawlessly, and was used extensively to produce this month's ray traced cover images.
It docs give the A3000 a boost speed w ise, but it's not as fast as many A2000 accelerators. At this price you may be belter off moving on to an A4000.
41 AUGUST 1993 Ml 85% All the accelerators here use an Improved variety ot CPU (Central Processor Unit), which Is the brain of your Amiga. So what do all these numbers mean?
68000 - The chip the A500, A1500 and A2000 are based on. It usually runs at 7.14Mhz, though models which run at a taster clock speed are available (as in the Supra Turbo 28). In Its day it was fast, but in compared to the Motorola's newer chips, it’s very slow.
68010 - Slightly Improved version of the 68000, which runs programs about 10 per cent faster with no alteration to the clock speed. No accelerators use this, as it's not really worth the extra expense of fitting one.
68020 - Used in the A1200, running at 14.28Mhz. Although the clock speed is doubled, the performance is Improved by three to four times by a redesign of the This card is an all in one expansion for the A1500 A2000. As well as a 33Mhz 68040, it provides provision for up to 64Mb of memory, and a SCSI 2. It's the fastest of the boards for the big box Amigas. And the SCSI 2 is extremely fast, especially when used in conjunction w ith a SCSI 2 disk.
It fits into the CPU slot of the Amiga A1500 and A200, and has provision for attaching a hard disk on to the back of the card, so it won't take up any of your precious expansion slots.. This is the fastest card in the roundup. It's marginally faster than the GVP G-Force 040 card for the A1500 A2000. Has better expansion capabilities (with the option to fit up to 64 Mb of memory), and has the extra speed of the SCSI 2 interface (as long as you're using a SCSI 2 drive). If you want to keep using your A1500 A2000. And are perhaps upgrading it to a 24-bit system by adding a card such as the
Retina. OpalVision or Toaster, this is the one to go for.
This card is expensive, but it's air excellent all in one expansion for the A1500 or A2000.
If you don't want AGA. This will give you a machine that can do complex number crunching, ray tracing and desktop publishing with one hand tied behind its back AGA IS ALL very well, but if you're thinking of moving up to 24-bit graphics, an A1500.
A2000 or A3000 is still suitable. However, an unexpanded A1500 will be extremely slow, and even an A3000 needs more power to really get serious with 16 million colour graphics. So. Which accelerator would give you the greatest speed increase?
ZEUS 040 AVAILABLE FROM: MICROPACE UK (0753 551888) £2.099 (16Mb RAM) £1.199 (0Mb RAM) Price Performance ratio: 38* iferdic! 87% chip, and the way it carries out the program's instructions. Also includes an instruction cache (small bit of memory built into the CPU) so for small programs or loops within programs, the processor doesn't have to get the next instruction from the RAM memory of the Amiga, which speeds things up yet again.
68030 - Used in the A4000 030. This is an enhanced version of the 68020, which runs at faster speeds (up to 50Mhz) and includes a data cache and an instruction cache. Again, the chip was slightly redesigned to speed up the processing ol Instructions.
68040 - Used In the A4000 040. Another complete redesign produced this chip, which includes 4Kb of data and instruction caches, a built in FPU (Floating Point Unit) which handles maths calculations. This chip gets hot, so has a fan.
This GVP manufactured card is based on a 68040 running at 33Mhz. With a SCSI controller built in. This card is also unique because it includes an extra parallel and serial port, which can be accessed directly by the CPC. For very high speed data transfer. It's not as fast as the Zeus, but it's by not slow.
Memory expansion is by four SIMM slots, which can hold up to 64Mb of memory using GVP's own custom 16Mb SIMMs, but to put it to this capacity would cost a significant sum.
Also included on the board is a custom GVP expansion slot, designed to hold its own 24-bit graphics card. Unfortunately, this has not yet been finished, and it's the only thing which could use this slot.
A good combination of accelerator and hard disk interface, although it's slightly slower than the Zeus. The extra serial and parallel ports could be useful. It is cheaper than the Zeus, and is definitely worth considering if building a professional system.

Here's a comprehensive guide to all the reviews, games and features from the last 12 months of Amiga Format.
45 AUGUST 1993 STOP! YOU NO longer need lo spend hours searching for lhal review you were sure was in Amiga FormaI three months ago - all the information you need is on the next six pages. We've collated and collected a comprehensive list of all the reviews, tests and round-ups of hardware, serious software, games reviews, educational review s and Coverdisks. So for the 144.330 of you w ho buy AF every month, read on and see what you've missed (or for on-the-ball Amiga owners, what you can still get by ordering back issues - see page 150).
ISSUE 37 ON SALE IN JULY 1992 NEWS: a number of new Amiga models are promised by Commodore US.
The CDTV is bundled with a keyboard, mouse and disk drive for the first time, and Commodore UK's MD Steve Franklin steps down and is replaced by Kelly Sumner.
FEATURES: we looked at how people put their Amigas to work - who they are and what they are doing with them. Then we covered PC emulation and showed you how to make your Amiga work with PC software, and predicted the future of graphics with Imagemaster - a stunning image processing program. Plus: at the wheel with driving games - a round-up of the best of the bunch.
ISSUE 38 ON SALE IN AUGUST 1992 NEWS: the A570 CD-ROM drive arrived; Philips launched CD-i into the UK; and Commodore's new boss. Kelly Sumner, told us what plans he had in mind for the future of the Amiga.
FEATURES: we showed you how you could keep your A500 alive and kicking with expansions. And for those who were thinking of buying a monitor, mouse or a modem we gave you the low down on the best hardware on the streets.
ISSUE 39 ON SALE IN SEPTEMBER 1992 NEWS: A600 and A3000 prices were slashed; we asked if the A4000 was the new Amiga; and we collated games news for a special round-up.
FEATURES: with the A570 CD interface now on sale we showed you how to turn your Amiga into a CDTV and also reviewed every CD so far released. Plus 10 pages of this issue were packed with printers, all put to test.
ISSUE 40 ON SALE IN OCTOBER 1992 NEWS: Commodore's successful Cartoon Classics pack was replaced with two new A600 games and educational bundles. Sensible Soccer was reported to be paving the way towards lower-priced CD software. And we told you what to expect to see at The Future Entertainment Show - 1992's biggest computer exhibition in Europe.
FEATURES: for artists at all levels we prepared a step-by-step tutorial on getting the most out of Deluxe Paint. And if you didn't want to draw, we showed you how you could still have amazing images with a look at the best of Amiga digitisers.
But if words were more important to you than pictures, our six-page feature on word processors kept you at your keyboard.
ISSUE 41 ON SALE IN NOVEMBER 1992 NEWS: launched: the Amiga 1200 - faster, more powerful and with more colours at a new price level.
Morphing, the new graphics technique. Hits the Amiga. Plus: CDTV drops to a competitve price at £399.
FEATURES: we stripped down and checked out the new top-dog Amiga 4000. And we showed you how to stay safe with our guide to keeping clear of computer viruses.
ISSUE 42 ON SALE IN DECEMBER 1992 NEWS: price rise shock - all Amigas set to go up in the new year; and Commodore says the A2000 is not to be replaced.
FEATURES: we had an extra special GameBusters with a run down of the best games ever and how to play them. Then we looked at the year ahead and asked the top names in Amiga software and hardware what plans they had for 1993.
And we told you what PCMCIA meant to the Amiga.
AMOS was on the Coverdisk, so we started the first in a long line of 'Mastering AMOS features to help you write your own professional-looking programs.
ISSUE 43 ON SALE IN JANUARY 1993 NEWS: the first example of A1200- specific software - Deluxe Paint IV AGA - was announced and, for the power hungry, the first A1200 booster was launched.
FEATURES: we revealed all the innermost secrets of the Amiga machine - from how a chip works to how a monitor displays a picture. And we set the agenda tor what should happen to the world of the Amiga.
ISSUE 44 ON SALE IN FEBRUARY 1993 NEWS: "Our interests couldn't be in better hands", said Commodore as the Amiga Format Live '93 Show was announced for May. And we warned: the A1200 has teething problems as some sub-standard TV modulators go on to the market.
FEATURES: this month our coverage was led by choosing and using the best software, as we showed you how to unlock the power of your Amiga. Plus we looked at five new hard drives reviewed and rated.
ISSUE 45 ON SALE MARCH 1993 NEWS: the first A1200 pack appeared with Ocean's Sleepwalker and a Comic Relief edition of Amiga Format. The A1200 also got a hard drive giving you 60 or 80 extra Mb!

Then we covered morphing: how it's done and how much use it is. Plus we had an IDE round-up telling you how you could have your hard drive on the Inside of your Amiga.
ISSUE 47 ON SALE IN MAY 1993 NEWS: after just 10 months as Commodore UK's MD, Kelly Sumner resigned - we told you what his move meant. Plus we took a trip to the American World of Commodore show in New York - and asked: ‘Is it so different on the other side of the Atlantic?'
Then we looked at the Amiga in a professional studio a la Evelyn Glennie.
FEATURES: we went on another trip, but this time all around the world on an intercontinental guide to the Amiga. We also test drived the new mid-range A4000 030, and the best of floppy drive buys.
ISSUE 48 ON SALE IN JUNE 1993 NEWS: showing off again, we reported how well the Amiga Format Live '93 Show went, with thousands of Amiga users pouring through the doors each day to play new games, see demonstrations and meet the teams of Amiga Format, and sister magazines Amiga Powersnd Amiga Shopper.

If there's a B at the end of the column this means it's a budget game and an FG means it’s a Formal Gold (90 per cent and overt. Bul any game which has a score of 80 per cent or more is well worth having, and 70 per cent plus is certainly worth a good look at.

£64.99 COMPETITION Do you own an Al 200?
Would you like a hard drive for it?
Would you like that hard drive to have a copy of Civilization AGA installed on it?
If your answer is yes to all of these questions, we've got just the competition for you.
Amiga Format, in association with Software Demon are giving 20 lucky readers a chance to get a 40Mb hard drive installed in their machine and win a copy of Civilization.
AUGUST 1993 Amiga Format Grand Win one of twenty The A1200 has been a storming success! The machine's ability to accept an internal IDE hard drive has also gone down well with the public, who welcomed the opportunity to save desk space and money at the same time. Few companies offer IDE drives for less than Software Demon, who devised their own system of gening the larger, and cheaper 3.5-inch drives into the Al 200's spacious casing.
Although buying an A1200 internal hard drive can be a bit of a minefield. Software Demon are one of those companies who. In our experience, offer excellent customer service On top of good service and good prices. Software Demon have secured another great incentive to buy one of their drives. It's called Civilization, and in issue 38 of this very magazine it scored an incredible 94 per cent. The AGA version of Civilization has just been completed, and Software Demon have acquired the distribution rights. Not only will they be selling the game to any A1200 and A4000 owners who want a 256 colour
version of this highly acclaimed management strategy game, but they will be giving a free copy to anyone who buys a hard drive from them. And to celebrate this momentous occurrence Software Demon are offering you the chance to become one of the lucky owners of this hardware software combination All you have to do is study the 10 simple questions on the right, answer them |correctly if possible) and send the (correct) answers on a sealed envelope or postcard to the address shown to the right Please don't send multiple entries, we have just received 78 from one person for the A4000
competition, which must have cost around £18 in stamps and postcards. It really doesn’t increase your chance of winning, so save yourself the money and just send one entry If you want to increase your chance of winning, send it on a groovy postcard that’s bound to attract our attention Right! Pens at the ready and good luck (5 COMPETITION HOW TO ENTER Simply write down the answers to all 10 questions below on the back ot a postcard or stuck down envelope, along with your name and address, then send it to: Demon Driver Competition Amiga Format 29 Monmouth Street Bath Avon BA1 2DL to reach us
before, or on, 30th July 1993.
We've changed the rules a bit this time, and we're not accepting multiple entries anymore, because we end up with a box of 10,000 competition entries, and they're all from the same 12 people. If you really want to increase your chances of winning, show some initiative, send us an interesting postcard.
Don't send your entries in a sealed envelope, because if it hasn't got the answers on the outside we just put them In the bin. I mean, come on we’re giving you the chance to win something for free, and you want us to open thousands of envelopes... no way!
Don't include your entries with letters or Workbench and GameBusters enquiries, because they go to a different address, so one of the two items will never get where it's meant to.
THE RULES 57
1. Employees of Future Publishing are not welcome to enter. If
they do, they have absolutely no chance of winning.
2. Employees of Software Demon cannot enter either, but they
probably don't want to, since they most likely get hard drives
for next to nothing anyway.
AUGUST 1993
3. No multiple entries will be accepted.
4. The editor's decision is final.

Thi on sale from Thursday May 6th priced at £3.95 It's not what you do, but the way that you do it... and that's why choosing the right joystick is vital.
Steve Bradley learns everything his mother never told him about... Tfiejol of stid IT'S A PERSONAL thing, a joystick. And what one you prefer to use really depends on the style of game you're playing and other preferences like the grip, speed and build quality, so you need try a few out before you buy. That's why we've not rated any of the joysticks in this round-up - but we have tested them thoroughly, and if you read what we think of them it will help you to get your hands on a winner!
Konix Speedking £10.99 ¦ Konix 0495 350101 Acclaimed to be 'The World's First High Performance Joystick', the Speedking fits comfortably into your hand. It has a solid feel and a loud shaft click so you can hear each move. A good all-rounder, it feels as if it will last a long time. Also available with turbo-fire (£12.99). Sensible Software used it in their recent soc- C ccr World Cup. What more recommendation do you O need? There is also an analogue version (£14.99) with C free-floating and self-centring modes - useful for flight 5 sims like Knights of the Sky. Analogue joysticks will only
work with analogue compatible software.
QJ Superstar £13.99 Spectravideo 081-900 0024 If you could convert a chaise-longue into an Amiga-compatible joystick, it would- look like the Superstar. Another of the 'ooh, look at the bits inside' brigade, it has a handle similiar to a Kojak lolly. It's a solid affair with five stabilising suction pads and strangely, two fire buttons next to each other. There is a nice click when you move the handle, though it could be heavy for some, and the fire buttons feel flat but you get used to them.
Supercharger £1099 Spectravideo 081-900 0024 This one's chunky with a large, black moulded handle and a stocky, pillar-box red base. The handle is comfortable to grip and anyone who has ever played Crossfire will appreciate the finger-friendly buttons.
This has a very wobbly handle, and one of the few ergonomic types with the wagglability to deliver demon fast bowls in Gooch's World Class Cricket.
With an autofire option, this will appeal to the games playing all-rounder.
BACK ROW (left to right): QJ Superthoigei.
QJ Superstar, Logic 3 Sigma Ray MIDDLE ROW (left to right): Gravis Gamepad, The Bug, Cheetah 125+, The Arcade Joystick.
QJ I Turbo, Competition Pro Extra.
FRONT ROW (left to right): Konix Speedking, Cruiser Turbo, Gravis Switch Joystick, Zip Sikh.
QJ I Tiirbo £6.99 Spectravideo 081-900 0024 Not as flashy as some of its QJ stable- mates. The I Turbo is a simple affair in black plastic. It's light with an ‘ergonomically contoured" hand grip which is easy to move, and two fire buttons - one trigger and one on top of the handle.
Some may find it too loose, but it's very simple to use.
Competition Pro Extra £16.99 Power Play 0457 876705 This is quite a famous one: "A joystick's joystick." Some claim. Or "Wouldn't touch anything else.” is sometimes the cry. So what makes it so special? Well, for a start, il looks unbreakable w ith its solid 'frosted' plastic casing and robust steel shaft from the Kojak lollipop school. Nutts has had one since 1985. And it's still unscathed.
The new versions are stiff at first, w ith not much play in the stick, but this wears in after a few weeks' play. The standard matt black model (£13.99) has a microswitchcd stick, but only pressure pads under the fire buttons. The Extra model boasts microswitchcs all round, and an aulofire sw itch to bool. Excellent.
Zip Stick £14.99 Power Play 0457 876705 Very similar in style to the Competition Pro. The Zip Stick has a lot more play in the slick - so you will find it easier on AUGUST 1993 your hands at first. The suction pads under Ihe base enable you to fix it to your desk, but take care because you will have a job getting it off again.
The distinctive yellow fire buttons are excellent, and. Um. Spangle-shaped (remember Spangles? They were really nice boiled sweets, which died out about 15 years ago). That’s about it. Except that like the C'P it is sturdy, with a steel shaft and a tough plastic casing.
Spectravideo 081-900 0024 There arc live fire buttons on this one.
Not that you can use all five at the same time, but hey.
We like choice don’t we? The comfortable grip handle moves easily (in eight ways) and has a reassuring This one's a cutic. It looks like a bug as well with it's large, front fire buttons resembling black eyes. The most palm friendly of all the palm friendlies. The Bug is one that takes some getting used to. But if you lake a shine to it you may find you'll never pick up another joystick in earnest. Some may find the short stick loo fiddly, but for me it's the most manoeuvrable of the lot. The Bug is a favourite at Aland my two bugs have taken a fair bit of battering over the past lew months
and are still going strong. Our editor Marcus, however, has destroyed four in just a year!
Click. I liked its overall feel, though someone in Ihe office thought the handle was bit bulky.
The Bug £14.99 Cheetah 061-707 7080 £13.99 Power Play 0457 876705 No. Don’t laugh at the name. Oh. Alright allow yourself a small chuckle. Cruiser Turbo eh? Sounds like the sort of thing the villains drove in Miami Vice. It's not though, it’s a joystick and one with variable tension control on the stick. This ones got a rather nice turbo fire button which splays bullets all over the show (if the game involves bullets of course). Other than that, there's not a lot else to say except that from one angle, it looks like an alien w ith a microphone in its mouth.
Switch Joystick £29.99 ¦ Advanced Gravis (distributed through Phoenix 0532 350652) If you’re looking for a multi-purpose, multi-functional joystick then this may be ideal. Tastefully coloured in black, ruby red and with gold trimming, the Switch Joystick is packed with features. The padded handle has a 10 setting tension adjuster ranging from soft to stiff, making it suitable for both fast plalformers and llight sims (as well as many others). There are three fire buttons, each w ith normal, turbo fire, forward and backward functions. It's quite pricey, but very nice.
Chillingly, this joystick is shaped like a coffin. And a black coffin to boot.
Very simple in design. The Arcade Joystick has one (only one?) Fircbutton. And not a particularly nice one at that. It's quite a solid little unit but the ball handle is a bit stiff and I found it a little difficult to manoeuvre in fiddly games. And at £24. It's rather expensive for the limited features it offers.
Cheetah 125+ £9.99 Cheetah 061-707 7080 What 125+ stands for is a mystery, perhaps it’s to do with high speed inter-city cheetahs. A light, plastic affair with four fire buttons (the buttons on the base have rather flat feel to them), the 125+ is a cheap, user-friendly sort which won’t make you gasp in amazement as you clutch its. Yes you’ve guessed it. ’ergonomically designed control handle’. As a fellow gameplayer pul it: "I wouldn’t sell my Grandmother to get one’’.
£14 99 Advanced Gravis (distributed through Phoenix 0532 350652) Hurrah! This one doesn't claim to have any kind of ergonomic design. That's because it's a joypad. And it’s fiat. The GamePad offers two styles of control - flatpad and screw-in joystick handle. Also, there is a switch which enables you to use the unit for either the right or left hand.
There are four brightly coloured fire buttons, two which can lie set in up or down mode, or in turbo-fire.
Quite a nice set-up. Though I'm not convinced about the lifespan of the screw-in plastic stick.
The Arcade Joystick £23.99 Euromax 0262 602541 Cruiser Tli r bo GamePad AUGUST 1993 QJ Topstar £24.99 Spectravideo 081 -900 0024 Well here's a handsome beast and no mistake. The Topstar has one of those fancy see-through bases where you can see all it's delightful inner workings. Not only that, it has a shock absorbing suspension system as well which sort of moves slightly as you waggle. One interesting option is the player's slow motion switch which slows you down to 'improve the challenge'. Under no circumstances attempt this when playing Sensible Soccer. I found the handle a little too
stiff for the more fiddly games, but it is an impressive model all the same.
Megastar £24.99 Spectravideo 081-900 0024 This must be the Topstar's big brother. It's a bit mystifying to statl with, until you realise it has a selection of left or right hand control depending on which way the switch is. What about this lot - five suction pads, four suspension springs and three fire buttons. I found the Megastar rather cumbersome and the handle too stiff for quick manoeuvring.
Still, there's not many joysticks which can claim to have 'industrial standard quality micro-switches'.
Konix Navigator £ 15.99 ¦ Konix 0495 350101 Similiar to the Spcedking in feel, the Navigator has an 'ergonomically' designed handle which in real terms means it looks like a dodgy toy raygun. The name suggests that it's designed with flight sub tank sints in mind, but it can be used for many different types of games, especially as it has an autofire option. If you like a handle you can grasp then this may be for you.
QJ Footpedal £24.99 Spectravideo 081-900 0024 This bi arrc coloured plastic thing is a popular controller for use when playing car racing games. What does it do? Well, it's a set of three footpedals.
The switches in the middle of the unit configure the three footpedals to act like any one of the directions of a standard joystick - up. Down, fire and so on. This makes it useable with almost all racing games and llighl sims. And it's pretty good. Too. Although it looks a bit flimsy, it stands up to a fair amount of beating.
The box informs you the Footpedal is: "Excellent for Car Racing. Flight simulation. Tennis. Kung Fu. Etc." Tennis? Kung Fu? I'm sorry, but I can't see it. Apart from that, it's a good controller for a reasonable price.
£29.99 Spectravideo 081 -900 0024 The trouble w ith driving games, of course, is that you don't feel like you're actually driving. Whoaal Here's Nigel Mansell's FreeWheel (calm down, it's £29.99) which really makes you feel like you're driving, sort of. Bit funny this because the wheel isn't attached to any kind of base, its just there. When you turn it. Gravity sensors are tripped and the car bike moves accordingly. Available in Digital version, which works w ith racing games that accept an input from a normal joystick, or an Analogue version which works with games like Formula One Gram!
Prix (£39.99). _ Holdfast joypad £24 99 Holdfast 0454 41 II26 Strange customer this. With its flat, yellow plastic base, four soaraway red arrows and fire button, the Holdfast is a rare breed among Amiga compatible joysticks. Not a joystick, but a joypad. The Holdfast was originally aimed al early learners but has found favour with many other users, particularly those w ith special needs. It's not easy to get used to if you have used more conventional joysticks for any length of time, but it's nice to see Amiga users catered for in this way.

Summer's here, which means that the number of releases is looking a bit thin, but we have some fantastic games to tempt you. Follow Andy Nuttall into the box of delights... Once upon a time, we were all punters too, and every one of us has had a nasty experience with a duff game at some time or other.
We don't want that to happen to you, so each game we receive has a whole host of tests to pass before it gets our ultimate accolade - the Amiga Format Gold.
We stick to four golden rules:
(A) If a game isn't finished, then we don’t review it.
(B) If it's poor-quality, then we say so - no matter what the

THE REVIEWERS Everyone's got their own favourite type of game, and at AF. We put that to good use. We look at each reviewer's special skills (and predilections) and turn them to your advantage. Here's what our team was up to this month... STEPHEN BRADLEY Being a fast, happening guy who's careful with his pennies. Steve's fave game this issue is the budget classic lotus Turbo Challenge 2.
ANDY NUTTALL Nutts can be found massacring enemies in Syndicate, but in his spare time he's usually massacring enemy teams in Goal! (Oh yeah? - Ed.)
JAMES LEACH Because of his curious passion for German motor cars, James cast a critical eye over War in the VW Golf. Sorry, that's War in the Gulf. Ahem.
PAT MCDONALD Pat loves the summer - the nights are lighter so he can sleep in the sun. And play Gunship 2000 late at night to annoy the neighbours.
MARCUS DYSON Afs warlike editor strapped on his expand-o-suit and consulted Q on his next mission - to review Robocod A1200. And all because... SARAH TANSER Taking time off from her life of smiles. Sarah was seen uncharacteristically frowning at Super Cauldron. But only briefly, of course.
RICHARD BAGULEY Richard's of a religious bent so when we asked him to review Prey he naturally jumped at the chance. Little did he know... ANDY HUTCHINSON Hutch has. Since a very early age, wanted to be an airline pilot. Twenty years on. And five minutes with Airbus made him realise he couldn't stay awake long enough to take off.
GARY LORD Due to his strange penchant for homed headgear, he demanded that we give him Lost Vikings to review. He's been charging around the office ever since.
Syndicate For a summer holiday this year why not pack up your bags and take a trip into the future with Syndicate. Rolling hills, valleys, superb natural wildlife and a group of psychotic cyborgs intent on taking over the world are but a selection of the wonders on offer.
It's the chance of a lifetime, but does your lifetime really stand a chance? See... Page 83 Lost Vikings The game which scored a huge hit recently on the console toys has now hit our beloved Amiga. It's about these vikings, you see, and they get um, extremely lost.
Anyway, it ends up being a kind of Lemmings-Humans-Troddlers-type thing, with some homs in it. See what the kiddies have been raving about on... Page 72 Goal!
The football season's ended, so what do you do? You could follow the exploits of Graham Taylor's new England line-up (see left) in the World Cup qualifiers.

Dino Dini's sequel to Kick Off 2 is here, but is it Sensible enough to go to the very top of the Premier League?
Do Amiga owners really need another football game? With over 40 of them out there on the market already, that’s a difficult question to answer. Amiga football is. To coin a phrase, a funny old game, because it seems that no matter how many are released, they are all soaked up by a market hungry for new footy titles.
To date, though, there really have only been three software contenders which offer you a decent game of football, and they are: Kick Off 2. Striker and Sensible Soccer. There are at least another four football games planned for release later on this year from various companies, but the one which is on most people’s minds at the moment is the subject of this review.
Goal! Was programmed by Dino Dini.
Who is the renowned programmer of Kick Off
2. Which for two years held the crown as the best football game
around - until Sensible Soccer, that is. Now. Dino is
attempting to reclaim the crown.
Can you kick it?
Like Kick Off 2. Goal! Is viewed from above the pitch, at a slight angle. The players arc slightly larger than in the previous game, and the general look of the game is more polished.
Two viewing modes arc available, which enable you to zoom-in or out of the action. In zoom-in mode only a small part of the pitch can be seen at any one time, and the screen scrolls smoothly around to follow the ball.
Because you can’t see much of the pitch, a scanner is provided which shows the position of the players and the ball as a series of coloured dots on a mini-pitch.
When the ball goes out of play, the view sw itches to zoom out mode, so that more of the pitch can be seen and strategics planned more easily. This system works rather well - but if you don’t like tt the mode can tie fixed on either zoom in or out.
In most Amiga football games, the ball w ill automatically stick to your feel as soon as you touch it. So control is simple but limited.
In Goal! The ball doesn't slick, but your players have their own momentum, which means they speed up and slow down as you move your joystick. This means that without using the fircbutlon it is in fact possible to perform some amazing feats of dribbling and control of the ball, just as long as you don't move loo quickly.
It’s a corner Also, as with Kick Off 2. You can actually trap the ball under your feet b simply holding RUNNING COMMENTARY Because football games are always so subjective, we asked several computer footy players to comment about Goal!.
RICHARD JONES AMIGA FORMAT SPECIAL Goaf is a game of two halves. Half will send you over the moon and the rest will make you feel sick as the proverbial parrot The graphics and player movement are excellent but it is difficult to tackle, the throw ins and comers take an age. And it's tricky to counter a forward's mad rush straight down the middle.
Goaf is a fine game, but it lacks the football ¦feel' that Sensible Soccer captured.
Ohhh God! Graham Taylor; the Premier League; Rovers relegated - football has had a season in hell.
Happily. Amiga football is healthy.
But is Goal! As good as Sensible? The footy fans' game.
Sensible is fluid and open. Goal! Offers big sprites, options aplenty and a table football feel, great for the kids.
So... Goal! Is a great Amiga game. Sens ' is the best Amiga football game.
Goal! Is a lot like Sensible Soccer, which actually I'm not bad at. It isn't as good, though. I found trapping the ball tricky, and once I did get it tt stuck to my foot.
The little men are well animated and run around with great energy. On its easiest level I found it winnable, if only because your men run much faster than the opposition. Overall. I like Goal! But it hasn't replaced Sensible Soccer In my affections.
Down the firebutton. Kicking the ball away is achieved by Idling go ol ihc button. Bans ol Kit k Off 2 w ill be pleased lo learn lhal taking comers and free kicks is now a lot easier and more logical lhan in (lie previous iwo games.
Before Ihe kick is laken. A dolled line is drawn away from Ihc ball. This is controlled bv the joy slick, and is used lo determine the angle, sircngth and trajectory of your shot.
Throw-ins also use ibis method, though, which is a shame because now they lend to break up the flow of the game. In Kick Off 2 you simply pointed the joystick in the direction you want to throw, and hit fire - a much simpler and quicker method.
"I must not retaliate. I must not retaliate" thought Ted before breaking the guy's jaw.
The action replay facility has been extended over previous games. It's now in the style of Striker, where Ihe function keys are used to control fast forward, rew ind and slow motion functions, very much like a video editor. When a goal is scored the replay is shown automatically, as is the trend with recent games. The facility is also available for you to record all of the action replays w ithin a game lo disk.
Another important new feature of ( « ’ is the choice between playing horizontally or vertically. This is an unusual option, included lo satisfy those people who normally play games such as Euro Suit er where the pitch scrolls horizontally.
Playing across the screen instead of down is very disconcerting at first, but the control, speed and movements are all identical in both directions. As well as offering a different challenge. Ihe horizontal pitch removes the fights between who plays up and dow n the pitch!
AUGUST 1993 Wot no cup competition?
OK. That's basically the new features of (intil!.
For those of you who haven't played Kick Off
2. You would probably like lo know that all the usual features
are included, such as after touch (so you can bend the ball
after you've kicked it), the new back-pass rule,
substitutions, formations and league.
The most notable exception, however, is the lack of a cup competition. This. I'm reliably informed, was due lo the lack of time, and could be implemented in an update to the Continued overleaf LEAGUE COMPETITION This is similar in style to the Kick Off 2 league. You can play up to 32 teams, each controlled by a human or the Amiga. You can arrange the teams to play each other up to 10 times, giving a total of 310 matches per team.
(The longest match you can play is 40 minutes real-time, so the maximum amount of actual playing time from a single league is 206 hours, or 8.6 days.)
Where is it written that sports games have to play exactly like the game they purport to be about?
Much is made of the fact that Sensible Soccer is more 'like' football than other tiny sprites wandering around a green pitch.
Goaf.' Has a more fluid feel to it than Sensible, it's easier to pick up and more fun. I see it this way.
Sens ' will appeal to those people who care about the colour of away strips. Goaf will appeal to those who like competitive two player games.
Goaf plays effective, not pretty football.
The frantic speed means you just blast H to the next player and hope they reach it first Once inside the box, it's a turn and shoot job with massive aftertouch displacing true 'skill'.
Kick Off 2, Striker and Sensible all had personality, something special to pull you through drubbings by Qatar. Goal! Lacks this. It's thoroughly competent but has a little of the Arsenal feel about it. It plays to win, and is a championship contender - but you'd rather be watching Wednesday.
Slide and pacey with choices of novice to pro play. I stormed into the first game amazed at the effortless way skillful passing, shooting and player control was (unfortunately by my opponent).
Aston Villa under my supervision raced around like eleven men with 'weight' and 'drinking' problems.
Still, after a few more goes. I got to grips and only lost 4-1 to Nutts. There was so much excitement I needed a lie down and the physio's wet sponge at half time!
ARCADE CHALLENGE The Arcade Challenge mode pits you against a series of five computer teams of increasing skill and speed. As you win each game, your goal difference is multiplied by the number of the stage, and added to your overall score. The first three levels are pretty tame, because the computer opponent is slow and unintelligent but on level four the computer gets quick and accurate, and you need all your wits and skill to beat it. Then, there's level five... red with black shorts. The colours can be changed in the game, of course, but a little more care could have been taken in
planning the kits.
Next, in some kick-offs one of the opponent's forwards will stand inside the centre circle. This can be particularly annoying, and would certainly not be allowed in real football. OK. So this is only a minor point, but it's worth mentioning.
As supplied, the team line-ups arc sometimes a little curious. For some reason, depending on your formation - attack, defence, that type of thing
- you will probably find that a defender has slipped into an
attacking role, and a forward has slipped into midfield or even
defence. This is extremely odd. And it means that you usually
have to move your formation around before you start each game.
Anyway, the teams may be played around with - players transferred between teams, and teams created, altered and transferred between leagues. All this information can be saved to disk, so if you take time to create your ultimate set-up. You won't have to do it again.
Lastly, there's a niggly problem with selecting which joystick you use. There is nothing in the software to choose between joysticks. So if you have a favourite joystick you have to hope that the Amiga assigns it to you.
Otherwise, you need to swap the joysticks between ports - which isn't a fun experience when playing in a league.
Andy Nuttall "Goal! Will remain on my playlist for a long time, but for me Sensible has the edge."
AUGUST 1993 BUT THE REF S DECISION IS FINAL ANDY NUTT ALL AMIGA FORMAT My impression is that Goal! Was written as an arcade game with some football elements, whereas Sensible Soccer was written by football fans as a real football simulation. As an arcade game. Goa .' Works really well. It is very playable, even more so than Kick Off 2. And the more you play the better your moves become.
The flexibility of the game and the scope for controlling the ball are much greater than in Sensible, but there is still the overriding feeling that something is lacking. Maybe it's that the throw-ins are too fiddly, or that sometimes the dying seconds of a match tick away while you're waiting for a comer to be set up, or simply that it's too easy to scream unchallenged up the pitch from the kick off and score.
Anyway, I'm sure that both Goal! And Sensible Soccer will both remain on my playlist for a long time. They are both highly playable games, but for me Sensible definitely has the edge - and the comments from the rest of the team seem to back this up - it is still the definitive Amiga football game.
* * K "Keep your legs closed young man." Said the gaffer.
"They'll make you look a fool if they can, nutmeg you at any
opportunity." Barry Jeffries never played for Willington
under-13s again.
Game sometime in ihe future. The sound effects arc generally good. The only one which isn't convincing is the crowd noise which occurs as the ball moves towards one end of ihe pilch - il sounds more like a strong wind Ilian several thousand baying football fans.
Liverpool United There are a few other points about Goal!
Which could be made better. The most obvious one is the incorrect team colours - for example. Liverpool play in the Manchester United strip - red with white shorts - which is really unforgivable, while Manchester United play in RICHARD BAGUUEY AMIGA FORMAT STEPHEN BRADLEY AMIGA FORMAT Goa is, above all. A football game, and I'm afraid that as far as I'm concerned, this isn't a positive thing. After all.
What is it all about? 22 blokes kicking a bit of wet leather around a muddy football field?
Not my idea of fun... Mind you, it is fun.
There's an art to trapping and running the ball, but it's too easy to kick off and bomb straight down the field towards the goal. Mind you. Most of the goalies are pretty good, so it's not always that easy. You don't get the feel of space on the pitch as with Sensible Soccer, and there's not the same tactical edge. Mind you I'll be coming back for more... When these pretenders to the Sensible throne turn up you've got to give 'em a chance right?
Not perhaps for the purist, Goa seems to want to be all things to all men. There are loads of options but not enough attention to detail, the game is a mish-mash of styles.
Yet Goa works. It's fast exciting and immensely playable even though it's not particularly realistic - but who said it had to be? You don't get the sense of space that Sensible offers and the ball pings around like pinball. A bit gimmicky for me, but perhaps I'm being overly fussy.
It's good, it's solid, but it's not Sensible.
Goal!

OorvS 30pm (S* 9 b3*m*.00pm) Vikings lost in space!
Strange, but true in this game. But how can you help the hairy long boat paddlers find their way home? It's all in the puzzles... The Lost You know the saying, 'there’s comedy in numbers' (or something like that), well it holds true if you cast your mind back to the great double acts of our time: Laurel and Hardy. Abbot and Costello.
Morecombe and Wise. Sapphire and Steel. And three can be fun-nie loo. The Three Stooges.
Three of a Kind. The Andrews Sisters - oh well, maybe three is a difficult number to work w ith and be funny, unless y ou are three Norsemen lost in space. Which brings us lo Interplay's new cute puzzler cum platform game.
Vikings are ihe central characters in this port from the SNES to the Amiga. The plot is fairly irrelevant - some alien geezer. Tomator.
Has vikingnapped three lovable dudes who go by the name of Olaf the Stout. Baclog the Fierce and Erik the Swift. Oh yes it's all very Norse-like isn't it? Well no actually, because all the action starts and ends on Tomator's spaceship, and throughout play there's not a long boat in sight. Which I'm pleased to sec.
'cos I can't bear all that raping and pillaging.
AUGUST 1993 It's a team game Teamwork is the name of this game, since you have lo gel all three of your clan to the exit in each level. And each viking has his own special skill which aids the other two in reaching the end. Olaf is a big fat slow lump w ho carries a Captain America-stylc shield which is handy for deflecting alien firepower and using as a sort of parachute; Baelog is the fighter of the gang, anti carries a sword to slice up enemies and a how and arrow w hich can be used to (lick otherw ise unreachable switches; finally there's Erik who moves like greased lightning, and
can leap and jump about like a frog on ecstasy - oh yes and lie's great at nutting walls and making them fall down loo.
The Last Vikings is in a scry similar vein lo llunuins and even Lemmings. Each level has its quota of platforms, ladders, trapdoors, secret keys, weapon wielding baddies, special switches and it's up to you to try and fathom your way out of each tricky puzzle.
What Interplay have done which Mirage didn't with llunums. Though, is make you Vikings " " J T:' Ji j r: • %'¦- j If R&l k&fV h. FI: fk :¦ tiint ¦ I hi w % '.V ¦ Wacky levels, taxing gameplay and aliens who support Arsenal - they all contribute to a great (ish) game.
Become attached to Olaf and co. Each viking has his own mannerisms - Olaf will pick his nose while holding off hordes of aliens with his shield. Baelog will stand around flexing his muscles and sharpening his sword, and Erik will pant away breathless after dashing about.
Throughout the levels there is a great rapport between them, their bickering is Stooge- like - as their speech bubbles crop up at the start and end of each level, they will have a natter or whinge at you if you take loo long to complete a level - smatterings of Monkey Island methinksl All this makes you a tad upset if one of them falls and splals on a spike, or gets burnt by a flame thrower, thus making you more determined to gel it right the next lime.
So what's bad about this game? Well there's nowt up with the gameplay. And the soundtrack speeds you along at a lair old rate, and the game makes you chuckle too with some excellent characterisation. What is bad.
Though, is some sloppy programming - many's a time when Olaf should be daintily perched on the end of a platform and in actual fact he's hanging in mid air. This is frustrating when you're trying to time your pixel-perfect moves.
VFM?
The price is high loo - for £29.99. 37 levels isn't much cop considering Ihe number of levels you get with other games. And my final gripe is it takes ages to reload the level once you've messed it up - and you're bound to do this (especially on the later ones, because they're tricky) since there's not a 'browse through’ function like there is in Lemmings. So have a copy of Amiga Formal ready for a good read while loading, otherwise you will go blimmin' barmy. In fact always have a copy of AF handy - it's FAB. Much like this game, but the poor loading and lack of levels let it dow n. Cary

now is the time that you wish your other platoons had even the
tiniest bit of artificial intelligence.
This is what will happen. In 1995 the Israeli and Arab factions will shoot at each other. There will be many casualties on both sides. The situation will be somewhat confused for a while, and a slightly surprising result of the fierce fighting will be the development of two divisions of elite Iraqi Republican Guards in Northern Kuwait.
The United Nations w ill decide to send in troops to evict the Iraqi soldiers and once more the world will be ringside for another desert rumble set to go the full 12 rounds.
AUGUST 1993 Take the M1 North So leaving apart the slightly dodgy Gulf political issues, let's have a closer look at the tanks of the next major conflict.
War in the Gulf is the third in the Team Yankee scries. Like Team Yankee itself, and more recently. Pacific Islands, it gives you control of 16 of America's finest and most dangerous armoured vehicles.
War in the Gulf Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the desert, the fighting starts again and you're in the front line. But is it fun being there?
Is the scale you've got to think about. Ranged against you are the forces of Mr Hussein's elite Republican Guard. Their company cars arc T-72s, T-62s plus an assortment of lesser vehicles. Elite they may be. But they don't get the best of the Russian hardware, that's for sure. On paper and in Ihe field vour kit is het- WAR IN THE GULF ter than theirs.
Again, as in the first two games, you get HI Ml Abrams main battle tanks and six missile-firing personnel carriers. These are carefully and artistically arranged into four platoons. The control options enable you to move these platoons separately, so this, really.
Is available from The problems start when you realise just Empire on how much of this not-very-good armour they 081-343 7337 have. Being Iraqis, and owning the world's GET A ROUND IN There are lour types ol rounds in the game (as well as machine guns). Each has a specllic role, and It's worth getting to know them and their abilities.
1 High Explosive (HE). This is perlect against buildings, lightly armoured vehicles, ammo dumps and trees.
2 Sabot (also known as Armour Piercing Fin Stabilised Discarding Sabot). This is a small kinetic round used to punch painlul holes in heavy armour. No explosive capabilities, its speed is its power. Use only against tanks.
1 TOW. Tube-Launcher, Optically Tracked Wire Guided missile. Long range, great accuracy and very dangerous. These sit atop your Bradley M2s and ITVs.
« Smoke. Hides your tanks and makes you cough.
Fourth largest army, they don't skimp on sending their troops directly towards you. It can be quite unsettling, in fact.
Bunkers on the Gulf course I LIKE DRIVING IN MY TANK Each battle is fought on a map which appears to he about five miles square. There arc villages. Woods and. Certainly on the training screen, rivers. It's just like being in Aldershot, actually, except that it isn't raining.
You go to the map view and position your forces as you see fit. Hearing in mind ihe exhaustive mission briefing beforehand. This has such objectives as blowing up ammo dumps, blowing up warehouses, blowing up factories and. If you can spare the time, blow ing up the enemy as well.
Until you come virtually face to face with them, enemy movement is hidden. This feature is one of the strengths of the program. You chance across enemy tanks and all hell breaks loose. It's feasible lo destroy your own vehicles in the heat of battle, and the fog of war is sometimes so dense it's best to stay at home and only venture out if it's strictly necessary.
After your first encounter, you're left lo lick your wounds and study the recognition chans. At times during the melee you'd swear that Empire have used the same sprites for the T-72s as for your Mis.
S3 EE ¦ E I Sixteen vehicles all blasting in unison con be quite o moving experience.
Especially if they're against overwhelming odds, and being destroyed as well.
During the battles, you musl fire every shol and make every movement yourself.
There arc no intelligent crews. The secret is to use the game's multi-view option. This splits ihe screen into four, and each quadrant can display anything you can sec on ihe main display. So two platoons can show the map and two can show the tank commander's view.
This is a great help when you're attacked unexpectedly. It's also a hindrance when you need lo dance between platoons lo co-ordinate your firing. Dive for the manual and learn those short-cuts is ihe best advice.
Iraq in the Kasbah There's also the weaponry to consider. HEAT rounds. Sabot shells. TOW missiles. It's amazing what they can do nowadays. Each has a differenl role, and if you know which to use.
You'll probably live longer.
After each bout you need to re-arm and reequip your team. This is done by spending a huge pile of cash. You can vary ihe armaments of your platoons and you can juggle with their strengths as well. What you can't do is go AWOL with the dosh.
All in all. War in ihe Gulf is as good as Pacific Islands and slightly heller than Team Yankee. This is hardly surprising since it's virtually the same game. In fact, all that differs between il and Pacific Islands is the colour of the surface your driving across. Instead of a putting green, it's now a beige hospital carpet.
The enemies use exactly the same equipment and you have precisely the same set up yourself. The missions are different, hut not much.
Hence the woods, villages and streams.
It's a pity that tile game doesn't advance what is a fun and playable system. There arc no helicopters, no new units and no new objectives. A large city covering the entire map would have been challenging, for example.
Ro O' £ F GO D U Although there's nothing new here, the missions do seem harder, which doesn't sound like war in the Gulf to me. Apparently, in real life the worst the Iraqis did was damage four Mis. Four out of nearly 2.IKX). that is. But you're faced with quite a task here. Unless your name's Schwarzkopf, moving and firing your 16 vehicles will tax you sufficiently by mission three.
Overall, this w ill appeal to die-hard Team Yankee fans and maybe those w ho have never played any of the series. It's the best of the ihree, but it's just not different enough.

So it's no coincidence that Psygnosis, the flagship of the Sony Electronic Publishing Company, has been committed to developing games on every major format and on CD-ROM practically since its inception. Investment, research and a far-sighted dedication lo this advanced medium has meant that we're far ahead of the competition and looking to expand even further as Psygnosis prepares to take the computer games market by storm.
An integral part of this schedule of market domination is Ihe attraction of talented people of graduate calibre to work in all areas of our business.
Based throughout the UK The opportunity to work on the very edge of technology, selling a product which will, quite literally, sell itself is a sales person's dream. But it's a dream that will come true at Psygnosis. Couple this with outstanding working conditions and a company that’s about to embark on some of the most exciting entertainment projects this decade, and this is a truly outstanding opportunity.
MUSICIANS & MUSIC PROGRAMMERS (CD-ROM) No one recognises the worth of music in software more than Psygnosis.

Let's face it. Jet flight is duller than a wombat's butt. You get a giddy feeling in your stomach for about 30 seconds, then it's hours of utter tedium until you get another giddy feeling in your stomach and the plane lands. In between you get a few packets of peanuts, a plastic cup full of weak lager and a baby's shrill cry in your earhole all the way to Crete. Jet travel sucks.
You would have thought that those dashing captains of jet aircraft had a slightly more interesting time of it than the punters, but having played AJ20 Airbus I can report that flying the aircraft's drearier than travelling in it.
A320 Airbus is what happens when lots of people with clipboards and pens in their top pockets decide to program a flight simulator.
The real thing" What we have here is a ’proper’ flight simulator. Everything about the game is designed to look and feel like the real thing. Before you can fly you've got to file a flight plan and then there's the process of setting up your plane for flight, before finally you get to trundle your jet out on lo the runway ready for lift off.
The Airbus was designed lo be one of the safest aeroplanes around. To this end. The vast majority of functions are carried out by the onboard computers. All you need lo do is tap in your destination on the flight computer and start the engines. Every thing else is taken care of. Which leaves you plenty of time lo flog imitation Rolexes and boxes of 200 fags.
777 ' ' MEEDS 1 MEC Graphically all you gel to see is a precise cockpit representation and lots of fields or sea beneath you. Occasionally a dial will move a bit (a cause for much celebration), but other than that all that happens is your engines automatically adjust their revs, the plane automatically adjusts its course and you automatically adjust your chair before falling into deep sleep.
The controls appear a bit confusing initially. But that's partly to do with the technical terminology. Basically if you can gel useil lo games like (unship, then you'll have no problem gelling lo grips wilh ihis. The main 'fun' bit comes from picking destinations lo be bored between. The game comes wilh two enormous books chock full of approach charts.
These terribly interesting diagrams indicate radio frequencies, approach coordinates and the like. Give Ihe game a couple of hours and you'll soon be able lo Hit all over the caslcrn or western sea boards of the United Slates looking at interesting fields and bits of sea.
Airbus A320 American Edition AUGUST 1993 Flyboys It's not lhal AJ20 is a bad game, it's jusi lhal unless you're, like incredibly, incredibly into all things wilh wings (and we're not talking sanitary towels here) then you're better off doing something interesting like creosoting the fence, brass rubbing or cataloguing your collection of early formica kitchen furniture.
Definitely only worth checking out if you're a seriously obsessed flyboy or girl.

A we've hpP* Golf °re 1 '° tips otUCrr Bullfrog's new cyber
strategy game is VFM - Violent, Fun and Morally unsound,
intrigued? You will be... Syndicate, shuh-ktit. N. Abbr. Synd.
An association of people or companies organised to promote a
common interest.
The new game from Bullfrog, makers of Populous
2. Is sinister. If you've ever seen films like Ridley Scott's
Blade Runner or George Lucas' TUX IIJR. You'll know what I
mean - futuristic sci- oncc-ficiion which is eerily life-like,
and eminently plausible.
Syndicate is a strategy game, where the 'common interest' is complete takeover of the world. Of course, this has been the subject of films and games since the year dot. Bul rarely has it been as effective as with this game. What's differs here, though, is you're not the megalomaniac seeking ultimate power. Instead you are an agent who works for the big cheese, the syndicate, trying to do a job and get up the employment ladder. Morals are out of the w indow - you have to do what you are told, no matter how weird or immoral the orders are.
Cybermen You are in charge of a number of cyborg agents, who are programmed to follow your orders via remote control. You monitor progress using the display screen, which is also used to give you your orders and progress reports. The cyborgs are either sex. But all basic models have a similar strength and resilience.
You are given a certain amount of money to equip your 'borgs through the first mission.
After this, raising further dosh is all up to you.
There are lots of ways to raise money, including raising the taxes for the people in the territories which your syndicate, and capturing enemies and their weapons so that your syndicate can use them in their research. They pay well for any enemy materials you bring back.
The manual blurb is worth a mention: "After winning a mission you have earned the right to levy outrageous rales of lax on the helpless citi .cns... If you're as popular as the Sheriff of Nottingham as a result, who cares! He didn't have armed psychotic cyborgs for back-up. " Mission possible The first mission is easy. You buy a pistol, and maybe a shotgun or a medikit for each of your four active cyborgs. It's not worth investing in extra body parts yet. Because the mission is really easy and you haven't got much money.
It is. However, a good idea to plough funds into researching new equipment. In the later missions you w ill need powerful weapons and well-equipped cyborgs, so it's best to research into advanced technology early on.
You can actively research in two main areas: Modifications and Equipment. The Mods are things like more powerful legs, and a strengthened chest cage to help protect your horg - see Cyborg Technology. The equipment is split into three: Automatic. Heavy and Miscellaneous. Investing in Automatic will bring in weapons such as an lizi sub-machine gun: Heavy will yield weaponry like the Gauss gun: while Miscellaneous will produce useful items such as an auto-mapper or an access card. See 'A Call To Arms' on the next page.
Once you've set the research going, and kitted out your crew, mission one begins. This involves going lo a city, and killing iwo enemy agents. They don't put up much of a struggle, and you soon hear a robot telling you "Mission completed".
Syndicate will then display a world map showing the amount of territory' which your syndicate controls.
The next area available for a takeover bid will Hash, so clicking on it will accept that mission. Later you will find there is more than one route available, so if you get stuck in a level you can always try a different route.
By now your research should show results. The Equip screen will have a larger list of available equipment - for a price - and you can select these for your borgs. Now may be the time to add more money to the research plan, but how much is up to you.
Don't really bother you until you draw your gun. If you shoot your gun. Then both policemen and enemy agents will rally round and try to shoot your cyborgs. If you manage to lake any of them out. They will die and leave you their weapon. Sometimes it's an advanced weapon like a Gauss gun or a laser, and if you keep it until you finish the mission you will be paid for it. Your syndicate will then be able lo create the weapon. Using this method you could obtain a Gauss gun on mission seven, whereas using research would take much longer.
Neat touches like this abound - it's very like real-life, in that everything you do in a mission will have a knock-on effect in the rest of the game.
All engrossing Syndicate is a very involved game, mixing strategy and arcade elements for a truly fun game to play, and one which will keep you coming back for more Unfortunately for A500 600 owners, the game docs run rather slow ly on these machines - it's still playable, though. Still, if there was ever an excuse to upgrade your machine... Although there have been power-strugglc games before. Syndicate approaches the genre from a new direction, and playing it is a refreshing experience (as well as a damn good ten- sion release). Also.
Bullfrog It a v e other missions in the pipeline, along with a multiplayer version where up to eight people can play against each other, each using a separate Amiga.
Although Syndicate is incredible fun and massively addictive. 1 would have trouble recommending it to kuls. There are some disturbing overtones to the game, which occasionally go beyond simple sci-fi.
Head Bullfrog Peter Molyneux commented: "I didn't originally set out to create a violent game, but having said that I didn't want to pull any punches.
Obviously it is violent... but there is nothing I would like to see more than ratings in computer games."
Well, if Syndicate had a certificate, it would be IS. Having said that. I've told you that it's violent, so if you're easily persuaded' steer clear.
You've been warned.
Andy lUuttall .i Heavy policing The 50 missions vary' in size and complexity, but rarely can you complete a mission first time.
Fortunately you can save your position al the end of a mission, so if you screw up you can always try again.
In most areas you will find a police presence, who CYBORG TECHNOLOGY 021385r C TE.M1 £ILI_E_C_TX H spgcial ftotr.T nicks Suffering because your cyborgs are just a bit too nerdy? Try buying one of the range of add-ons that Syndicate offers you to modify your agents: HEART Improves overall physical strength and stamina of cyborg.
EYES Helps fire more accurately, and react to hazards more quickly.
BRAIN Make your agent more aware of his surroundings, and quickens decision-making under pressure.
ARMS Enables your 'borg to carry heavy items with no loss of speed.
LEGS Moves the cyborg more quickly around the mission zone.
CHEST Metallic chest plate to help survive direct hits. Also contains explosive charge for self-destruction.
A CALL TO ARMS Syndicate, being a game based around a violent futuristic world, naturally places a range of powerful weapons at your disposal. Let's take a look at them... PISTOL The weakest of all the weapons, but available for no cost.
Medium range, useful as a back-up weapon.
SHOTGUN Pump action shotgun with a large spread of shells. Useful at close range.
UZI SMG Quick-firing weapon with a medium range. Fires many shells, and costs very little to reload.
LASER GUN Small high-powered laser with a long range and high accuracy.
Useful for sniping and disabling vehicles.
GAUSS GUN Portable long-range rocket launcher, with three rockets. Useful for destroying tanks and massacring crowds of people.
TIME BOMB High explosives, complete with timer and detonator. Leaves structures intact but erases people and vehicles.
LONG RANGE RIFLE Highly accurate, with a very long range. Single shot useful for assassinations.
FLAMER Produces a stream of napalm-like ignited jelly which sticks to target and burns. Highly sinister.
MINI GUN Heavy motor-driven machine gun with a fairly long range.
Most devastating when fired in short, accurate bursts.
PERSUADERTRON The single most important weapon of all. A very short range weapon which fires a chemical at a target, and brainwashes the target to your way of thinking. The target then'follows you zom- bie-style for the rest of the mission.
If you 'persuade' 16 civilians you may also 'persuade' a police officer. Persuade 32 civilians and you can go grab an enemy agent to add to your cryogenic stock of cyborgs. You are paid at the end of each mission for all the 'persuaded' civilians who survive.
This is your boss. If you get to this screen, it means that you've failed, and you will face imminent termination.
AUGUST 1993 ¦m Syndicate £34.99 xrirt-nalini'-pumping acliun mixed with clever strategy to give a supremely polished and well-thought-out game.
• Superb Blade Runner-style graphics and effective sound give the
game a dark, doomladen atmosphere.
• Controlling the vehicles is a hit fiddly.
• Pure, unashamed violence...
• ...and hut incredible fun to play.
Th s ,s Kamchatka, one of the smallest missions, but not one of the easiest. The idea is that you have to put your agents (right) into the car. And drive it into the city. Once inside, you have to take out all the APCs (Armoured Personnel Carriers), and terminate anyone who gets in your way. You should have ploughed a lot of money into researching new weapons by now. If you haven’t, then you’re likely to get wiped out here because the enemy syndicates who rule Kamchatka are armed with Gauss Guns - possibly vf" the most powerful (and scary) weapon to be found in Syndicate. They W only have
one. However, so a good strategy is to split your team up and sacrifice one of them to the man with the Gun. Lastly, hijack the ambulance, and drive very quickly out of the city - keeping clear of the other enemy agents Super Cauldron This is what wc want to see. A heroine with sensible clothes and a plucky disposition. Evil forces have enslaved the kingdom of Cauldron and spread desolation on its people. Only Zmira. A plucky little witch with the combined powers of all the w itches, can save them. It sounds like just another plat- former. But this is no walk in the park. This is serious
stuff.
AUGUST 1993 Zmira has three lives lo spare, four worlds lo get through and meets an awful lot of enemies along the way. The creatures who live in the forest are all baddies now thanks to the Evil Sorcerer. There's help in the form of a spell book, with one spell in it when Ihe game begins and broomsticks which can be picked up for a short time. Once Zmira moves around, dodging the rats. Bats, vultures, snakes and very butch-looking men. She can collect other spells to help her defeat the sorcerer.
Some enchanted heaving The adventure starts in the Enchanted Forest and it's up to you to help Zmira find the key and fight one of the sorcerer's goblins. You then get the Magic Book which will allow you to pass to the next level. This is not easy. The enemies regenerate as soon as you walk away, and your broomstick only works in short bursts. Along with the blood-crazed animals there are pumpkins who try to squash you and there are traps hidden along the way. When you kill something, it may be changed into a toad which will increase the power of your current spell.
Feme) 70% There are 12 spells lo collect, and you will need all of them lo complete Ihe game. Al the start all you have is ihc stone spell. The spells can Ik- splii inio two types: the weapons and the 'really useful things'. The first category includes fireballs, lightning and bombs, while Ihe second contains all the weird stuff. There are magic staircases and bridges, teleportation.
A circular saw and my favourite - multiplication. Stop raising those eyebrows, here you can splil Zmira into four little clones. They run off.
Killing the enemies surrounding you as they go. Another 'useful' is the metal melter which, strangely enough, melts metal doors.
We're surrounded Captain SUPER CAULDRON is available from Titus Software 071-700 2119 This is probably one of the hardest games that I’ve ever played. At least most adventure games give you a chance to think. This one fires cute little animals al you like bullets with your name on them. You can't afford to stop and scratch your head for a moment, because some vulture or bat will try to rob you of your precious energy.
Super Cauldron is difficult - much harder than. Say. Arabian Nights. And each play seems to be over too soon, but you have to launch back into the fray, refusing to let a simple pu .zle adventurc shoot-em-up get the better of you. If you're a mean match with a joystick then you will probably find this challenge holds your interest in the game for longer than normal, but if you've still got your 'L' plates on. I'd steer clear of it. Now. Does anyone know how to pronounce Zmira?
Sarah Tanser O Super Cauldron Titus Software ¦ £25.99 Prey X-BACKUP H PROFESSIONAL* VI AI I II PRC Is the most powerful disk dupllcator utillC package ever designed for the Amiga.

Almathera Systems ¦ 081-683 6418 ¦ £25.99 Apparently, asteroid KG - 42 used to be a nice, quiet sort of place to live until the aliens moved in next door. So property prices plummeted, and the aliens eating everyone didn't really help the situation either. The powers that be thus decided to send you in to sort out those nasty aliens once and for all, and to help rescue any refugees you find lying around the place.
Well, at least that's what I assume is happening. This game doesn't come with much information, except for a single paragraph on the back of the CD box. There is an insert, but all this tells you is how to control the game. The controls are pretty minimal, with the usual forward, back and turn, and the two keypad buttons giving a status screen and a map of the area, showing you what to do and the objective.
I know that CD doesn't have the fastest transfer rate known to man, but this game hardly pushes back the boundaries. Each time you enter a new zone, or request the map, you wait at least five seconds for something to appear. I wouldn't mind if the clock stopped, but it doesn't, so just after going through a doorway, you're stuck there waiting. But the dock is still ticking away. With only one minute and 40 seconds of oxygen to start with, every second counts.
If ti.nl Apart from moving around the colony, there is also a combat section where you and an alien slug it out. This uses some nicely treated digitised images to show the aliens, but it doesn't really work, especially with a CDTV keypad. You attack with button A (which has a nice machine-gun sound) and dodge with button B, but this doesn't seem to have much of an effect.
Nicely drawn and rendered 3D graphics abound, and the sounds add to the atmosphere. With heavy breathing and good clunky footsteps as you move down the corridors.
If you're really up on sci-fi films, you could also play ‘spot the sample' while you're waiting for things to load. Let's start H off with the breathing - from 3001: A Space Odyssey.
The game is rather similar in feel to Infestation (reviewed in AF10), but you don't get the same feeling of being in control. There certainly isn't the same degree of background, and the control method is much more simplistic There is a good game in there somewhere, but the bad design, long access times, lack of proper documentation and extreme difficulty conspire to make it a game that won't last too long.

MicroProsc's latest hclieoptct sint is the greatest yet.
Starting out as a lowly Warrant Officer candidate. You go thiough an entire career as an American Army helicopter pilot.
You can eventually command a squadron of four pilots on many different mission ty pes.
But first, though, you have lo convince your superiors that you arc up lo the job. To start with, only training missions and single chopper flights arc available. When you have clocked up enough points and decorations, and you are offered a commission.
Flight sim buffs listen up! This is no ordinary game
- and it's not just gunships you get to control. If you're power-
hungry - feed on this... Crashing choppers Gunship 20011 has
more than just gunships in it. They're no good for picking up
troops or dropping off cargo. You can choose from seven
different helicopter models, although some arc reserved for the
higher ranks. All of which makes for a long term game.
AUGUST 1993 Choppers arc notoriously difficult to fly .
But you can make it as realistic or easy as you wish. "No Crashes' is recommended unless you are very confident - there arc no parachutes in a helicopter!
The music, sound and background graphics are of the highest standard. The intro is Gunship 2000 GUNSHIP abysmal mind you. Bul there arc plenty of more worthwhile features.
The 3D graphics are truly excellent.
Topological 3D is what MicroProse call it.
Although most of the terrain is still flat, the hills and valleys really make the game, because helicopters operate al tree lop height.
The rivers flow between banks, and the railways go through tunnels in the lulls, even on an A500. The A1200 is the preferred Amiga to play on - the game doesn't have 2S6 colours hut it does use faster machines to the full.
Smooth operator Everything moves very smoothly. Three different detail levels are available, as well as some fine tuning options like full distance 3D.
This option occasionally results in your copilot gunner tCP G) doing what resembles a Max Headroom impression.
As your situation changes - a new target is acquired, or an incoming missile is detected - ihe CP G tells you. When a lot of things happen al once, they just can't keep up. The CP G can also be set lo activate your jammers or 3IS ODD! DMT DSD H E A Hr (to buy them separately. Needless to say. But the different terrain, targets and weather conditions do make for even more variety. Weather conditions also have an affect on weapons systems - laser-guided missiles like the llellfire don’t do nearly so well in fog or mist.
Playing front the four floppy disks rather than a hard disk (1.5Mb of memory is needed for hard disk use) is not too bad - loading time is quite long, but the disks are asked for in sequence. Playing from a hard disk is not exactly snappy, either In fact, the game takes hours and hours lo play properly. It's not just lots of disk activity
- quite a few missions in which you get killed have to be erased
and replayed just to get a commission, let alone a full
99-mission combat tour before a pilot is retired Gunship 2000
has many hooks and lures, which makes it horribly addictive. I
have literally played it for days and nights on end, and
anticipate playing it for many, many more. It's that special
not perfect, but certainly a game you can lose yourself in for
weeks at a lime before you even begin to master it.
Pat McDonald 91 AUGUST 1993 decoys and lire Ihc weapons if you can’t handle Ihe pace.
Talking of weapons, if you are bored of seeing a limited choice, this game has ihe lol.
Cannons (different choppers have different types). Hellfires. Tow 2s. Three kinds of Hydra and some new ones like Sidearm and Hcllstrcak are bundled for a very good measure. When commanding a flight, certain weapons and helicopters are not available - a neat land demanding) touch. You have to be familiar with every weapon system in case your favourites are not in stock!
Missile with a view There’s a wide variety of opposition lo lire weapons at. Including several helicopters for some air-to-air combat. The outside views of these are most spectacular, especially when you switch from viewing a target to the view of a missile about to hit it. The view quickly, but smoothly, tracks from the target lo the missile. Turns 1X0 degrees and follows the missile.
Two campaign areas are included - Central Europe and Persian Gulf. Four additional areas arc planned, but you will have lo All the various helicopters have different cockpit views. The Blackhawk has side-by-side seating, rather than standard tandem gunship arrangements. In reality, a Blackhawk would be lucky to get this close to a surface-to-air missile and survive.

- p ITT - ? Mi HOW TO GET A PROMOTION Gunship 2000 £35.99
• Excellent graphics lo fix around, through and over.
• Atmospheric missions, music and maps.
• l.ots of depth to really get your teeth into.
• Realism options will suit flight sim huffs ery well.
The key to the game is to keep completing your missions as quickly as possible. You can play Gunship 2000 as an arcade game, by setting training missions - on these, flak and missiles does no harm. However, training missions don't get you any points.
You can either keep playing as a Warrant Officer, on your own in your own chopper, or accept promotion. Personally, I find that flying single missions is more fun than commanding a flight but true simulation fans will probably appreciate the extra challenge. You cannot jump into the cockpit of the helicopters under your command - you can only give them orders from the map screen.
Finally, you can elect to play a campaign. This means commanding a flight over many missions, as a war ebbs and flows.
Completing a campaign against elite troops with all the realism settings on will shoot you up the ranks. Maybe if you keep doing that you’ll make it to Brigadier General.

Lotus Turbo Challenge 2 GBH ¦ £9.99 Reviewed AF29 89% The Cycles Hit Squad ¦ £9.99 ¦ Reviewed AF9 84% My Mum used to warn me about the danger of riding motorcycles, although I used to have a Raleigh Chopper which was more dangerous. The Cycles, you will be pleased to know, is not in the least bil life threatening. There are 15 different circuits and to win the World Championship, you have to race the lot.
Before each race, you run a solo qualifying lap to determine your place on the grid and this also gives you an idea of the track layout. Early doors, it’s best to go for the !25cc bike rather than the 250cc or the four cylinder 500cc. I tried the 500cc first and spent a lot of time on grassy verges. If you're into racing games. The Cycles will certainly keep you going for a while. The main gripe is that you can't race against • 1 I a friend, but it's a good buy for a tenner.
Have you ever watched that TV pro- gramme Cluedo4’ Well this isn't anything like it. Alright, it's a bit similar in that solving a murder is the name of the game. The action takes place in a mansion. With a rather splendid 3D isometric viewpoint of the old pile.

If I had a Lotus Elan, no way would I go anywhere near a racetrack. Still, this is a computer game so there's no point worrying eh? Lotus 2 is a view-from- behind, against-the-clock race with eight different driving stages (and conditions) to contend with.
There arc plenty of options here as well, including four player mode (by linking machines), the choice of manual or automatic gears, and acceleration by fire-button or joystick. The stages include forests, deserts along with various weather conditions, and each has a number of checkpoints to get through.
Winning the race is very much a case of foot down and go for it. Any dawdling and you will run out of lime. Loins 2 is an excellent racing game and you're constantly spurred on to reach the next stage just to sec what the conditions are. But as Ferris Bueller once said: "You killed the car" and unfortunately, you cannot kill the Elan in Lotus 2. No matter how many times you hit objects.

You have to fight goblins Harry looked on impassively as the oversized w' h swords, pass through Indiana Goblin took a sword to the man in the dress.

The Addams Family Hit Squad ¦ £9.99 ¦ (Reviewed AF35 78%) Odd looking bunch the Addams Family, and who is that hand fella? It would be nice to see this lot on Family Fortunes. Come to think of it didn't they win Telly Addicts last year?
Anyway, The Addams Family is a licensed platformer from the film of the same name. Gomez (that's you that is) has to rescue members of his (Addams) family who have been captured by evil Abigail Craven, a woman anxious to lay her hands on the family fortune. Would you want to rescue Pugsley, Wednesday and Granny if they'd disappeared? This he must do by searching the mansion which consists of a veritable maze of rooms, as well as areas outside and underground.
You never quite know what to expect upon entering a room - flying teacups, animals on unicycles, tortoises riding sealions (the last one was a lie). There are helpful pick-ups to collect along the way including a fez which enables you .
To fly. Both the graphics and soundtrack are excellent and the playing area is so large, it will keep you going for ages.
There have been a couple of important releases in the pinball field since Manic came out. Namely Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies. Both are belter than Manic. But that doesn't mean Manic isn't good. It is good, it just isn't magic.
There are 12 levels to plough through, each level accessed by a door. To open a door, you must extinguish a scries of lights, or in some cases, destroy a number of bricks. Even though the tables I like to think t am by far. The best pinball arc small, the game works well and pin- player at Amiga Fomat. But I'm not - yet. Ball fans will enjoy the challenge of completing the levels and I.-I' going for the jackpot bonus.

Either way, you ¦Cap'n, what's large, green and septagonal in must be dued-up and this shape?' "Oh Jenkins, not that old one again'. Means canny trading and careful flying.

Set 5,000 years in the future, MegaTraveller is a tale of warring factions - the evil Zhodani Consulate and the goodies, the Third Imperium.
The Zhodani are preparing another attack, and the only way to stop them is to infiltrate computer records about the conspiracy and then apprehend their leader.
MegaTraveller is a Roger consumed his eighth pint of stout knowing role-playing game where full well Trudy's frenzied diatribe was lies, all lies, j characteristics of your team to do the business. It's not easy to get into and unfortunately the Space Legends manual is not particularly user-friendly. However, those with the patience of Job may find it rewarding.
Not long after its full price release, Wing Commander finds itself on a compilation. This one’s a mixture of flight sim and shoot- em-up with Saturday morning cartoon graphics to boot. With the alien Kilrathi race hellbent on causing mayhem, it's your job to get out there and blow 'em away. Whether you do depends on your "She's ne gonna take It Jim" cried Chewbacca as tactical ability and accu- the crew from Blakes Seven landed at Shepperton. Racy with the bullet. With its nicely animated graphic sequences and good narrative development Wing Commander is an enjoyable Star Warsian (can I say
that?) Romp.
The Space Legends compilation is very good value for 30 quid, particularly as Wing Commander was only recently released at full price a few months back.

Myth is a tale of a warrior, fighting heroic battles against fiendish foes. And what a warrior he is. Brave, strong and true, he can sword light like Bruce Dickenson, jump like Carl Lewis and punch like Larry Grayson, sorry I mean "Oi. Terry, if you're stopping off down the pie Holmes.

Bullseye - the TV programme responsible for putting a speedboat on every council estate in northern England - enters the Amiga arena with the exotic Bully's Sporting Darts. It's a veritable feast nay. A festival of darting fun. On the oche are the classics - 501 and Round the Board, and the sports games football, golf, cricket tennis and snooker.
The Hand wasn't sure whether he preferred the how do you play speedboat, the caravan, or the Mini Metro. Darts Qn a computer? WcM you control a wobbly hand in front of the dartboard, and when you fancy your chances of hitting the target press the joystick firebutton. Simple.
The sports options aren't anything special, although the pleasant 'outdoor' sound effects in golf are rather nice.
Bully's Sporting Darts works best in two player mode playing traditional 501. Good fun if you like darts or competitive two player sports sims.

AMIGA 400 030 AMIGA 1200 I DMA ENSURES HIGHEST PRACTICE As with most industries, the UK's personal computer industry has its share of cowboys operating in the mail order sector and at the receiving end a line up of despairing consumers who have suffered at their hands.
A personal computer is a sophisticated and expensive item and provided the purchaser is dealing with a reputable and accredited supplier, buying a computer by mail order can be a perfectly safe and cost effective exercise. The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) was set up in April 92 to set and maintain high standards for the sake of the industry and society at large, and to ensure that we can continue to regulate our own activities on the basis of proper professional responsibility.
Membership of the DMA is not conferred lightly - it is a privilege which entails responsibilities, to the consumer as well as to the industry. The foundation for this must be good practice.
DMA members are required to abide by the highest standards as laid down in the DMA's code, enforced on members by The Authority of the DMA a separate body with an independent Chairman, and which is an assurance of vigorous self - regulation and professional responsibility.
DMA members also agree, as a condition of membership, to abide by The British Code of Advertising Practice and The British Code of Sales Promotion Practice: to apply the Mailing Preference Service file when appropriate: and to subscribe to the Advertising Standards Board of Finance (ASBOF) and to the Mailing Standards Levy as applicable.
The DMA symbol can only be used by members. Printed on stationary, advertising and other promotional material it demonstrates that these companies conform to the Association's high standards and arc subject to the DMA's Code of Practice, thus enhancing the companies credibility with customers, suppliers and of greatest importance, the consumer.
Since the symbol was introduced last June, it has become synonymous with quality . Professionalism and and responsibility. While it cannot be shown in any way which will become a sign of best industry practice and of strict adherence to DMA codes of conduct. The symbol represents authority for members and reassurance for consumers. It has been a high valued mark of confidence signifying to the consumer the truly professional edge of the industry.
Alison Sian (Director of Public Rclations.DMA) INDI DIRECT MAIL Proudly Presents THE JAKKI BRAMBLES COLUMN Hi.
Commodores decision to reduce the price of the Amiga 600 took every one by surprise and really positions the A600 as the perfect entry level computer .
Of course the problem with new technology is that something has to be left behind and in Commodores case it's the poor old 500.
Now Indi tell me that Commodore are taking back all old A500's when you buy a new state of the art Amiga 1200. So dust off that old A500 make sure that it is in full working order and you still have the mouse, modulator, manuals and power pack. Give Indi a call on 0543 419999 and ask for "Amiga 500 Trade in Desk". Indi will send Securicor to your home and pick up your A500 at their cost and then deliver a superb new Amiga 1200 with £100 off the advertised price. Remember this is a limited offer What's a PCMCIA slot I ask? Indi explained to me that its Commodores way of ensuring that both the
Amiga 600 and 1200 can remain future proof. Credit card style memory cards are already available from Indi but thats just the beginning, faxes, modems and network cards are on their way and who knows what else. If you need to know more about PCMCIA why not drop me a line.
On the subject of letters I have been swamped. It's absolutely great and I promise each one will be responded to and get a signed photograph so keep them coming! Last months winning letter came from Adrian Simpson of County Dow n Northern Ireland who gave a very well informed comparison between Amiga and less useful consoles.
I was absolutely knocked out with all the details he sent me concerning the music capabilities of the Amiga. Adrians letter was far too detailed to reprint hut a big thankyou to him for writing it. Adrian the prize is on its way.
WHAT DOES THIS SYMBOL MEAN Finally I received a few important letters asking what is the DMA and why is it important to consumers that Indi is part of it. On thais page you wil find a letter from the Chairman of the DMA. It's well worth a read.

WHY NOT RING FOR A QUOTE. SAMEDAY RESPONSE. (SEE EXAMPLE) Panasonic Quiet We researched the colour printer market at great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful output, yet at an affordable price.
We found the perfect printer in the KX - P2I80 and KX - P2I23 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 il We found that too. With Wordworth' yet at a retail price of C129 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 Panasonic printer. How’s that for added value?

The operating loss may be more than offset by the benefits of increased Championship Manager '93 Reviewed AF46 - 87% Electronic Arts ¦ 0753 549442 Some handy hints from Oliver Collier of Intelek... MATCH TACTICS:
• A strong midfield is essential - look at match stats screen to
see how midfield is faring.
• Try to adjust formation to combat your opponents.
• Don't ask your player to play a too advanced style of football.
TRANSFER MARKET
• When in lower divisions, look for bargains. Experience is very
useful. Don't spend all your cash on one player, buy several
older players to get you out of the division.
• Don't base everything on a player's history. He may have had
bad seasons due to injury or playing in a poor team.
• Try to keep your players under contract. The longer a con
tract is, the more he is worth.
• Use the scout reports. Pay attention to the last five ratings.
• Player loans. Don't rely too heavily on loaned players, because
they won't be able to play in cup competitions.
PRE-SEASON
• Even if you think you know your best team, try as many players
as possible in pre-season. Arrange friendlies against mixed
oppositions, so you know the team's weaknesses.
INJURIES
• Insure your best players against injuries, and rehabilitate
them when they face a long lay-off.

Go to the Access Code screen, and enter TQQQLOM for five lives, or BQQQAEZ for 10 lives. Now either begin the first mission, or go straight back to the Access Code screen and type in one of the following codes to skip to other levels: Note: the password system records the current level of ammunition, fuel and so on. The passwords should give you enough provisions to get through the chosen level.
LEVEL CODES: TITLE CODE Scud Buster LQJAQRJ Embassy City TUJOAQ Nuclear Storm JTEKOMK Some hints for you directly from Audiogenic...
• Don't always bowl at the fastest possible speed; a slower ball
may fool the batsman.
• If you've never seen it rain, check out the name of the main
file on the program disk. It should be something like:
'130593.AG' - if you've got an earlier date, return your disk
to Audiogenic for a free update.
• Right-handed computer batsmen seem to be weaker on the
off-side.
• The straight-drive can be the most effective stroke, but make
sure you don't edge the ball to the slips.
• Don't forget to vary the position of the wicket-keeper to suit
the speed of the bowler.
• Connect your Amiga to your VCR and you can create your own
Action Replays. You could even leave the game running in
computer vs computer mode when you go out then rewind the tape
to see the highlights.

To counter the gun's habit of overheating while you are under attack, connect an autofire joystick to the Amiga's second joystick port. Switch the autofire on, and (assuming the autofire is roughly the same rate as the Zipstick’s) the guns will practically never overheat.
They will fire a little slower than they normally do, however, but at least they are constant.

It's an oldie but a goodie, and now you can enjoy it in its entirety on an A1200.
If anyone has recently splashed out on an A1200, and you have found that Mega- Lo-Mania won't work properly, tum the speech off before you run the game. You should now find that the game will run perfectly (but without speech, obviously!)

Growth around the station from the passengers. Try clicking on ihe stadium once it has been built, you should sec a message appear - it makes amusing reading!
• Here arc a few interesting dates for special events that
occur during the game: 0 Feb 29 - leap year (every four years).
• April 5 & 6 - birds migrate north.
• July 7 - a UFO flics from the north east to the south.
• All Saturdays in August - Amusement park firework show (8pm).
• October I or 2 - Birds migrate south.
• December 23 24 - Santa rides his sledge from north to south (I
Opm-1 am).
The crossroads arc apowerful development tool, they create a strong subsidiary growth around them. Also speed up growth by clearing land with trees on it. And then reselling, because this increases the rale at which houses are built around your station.
Build factories in line one behind, or one in front, of the other for maximum efficiency. Stock markets can be predicted and once every I -2 years there is a boom in which prices skyrocket, before falling back down.
Stuart Hawes from Norfolk wins a copy of Lemmings 2 for these tips.
As well as the secret rooms mentioned in AF47, there is also this one: On level one, as you climb the big tree (before the hole in the tree at the end of the level) try dropping down the gap while keeping your joystick to the right. You will find yourself in another room containing nine crystals and a power-up. When you've collected them all. Jump up to the tree again, and leave the level.

IT'S THE PATHETIC TIPS... atatogue files Display edit records Select all Invert selection filter records Print nenu ftlter create database Utilities nenu Quit What's this? A ProData screenshot in GameBusters.
Well it is the Pathetic Tips corner.
The following letters arrived in the GameBusters postbag during the last month... "Dear Andy, Dungeon 19 I am writing to you regarding the Prodata database that was on one of your Coverdisks on the February issue of the magazine.
'I have found the database very useful, helpful and fun to use. The one problem which I experienced, though, was having to wait for the disk to access every so often..." and the letter continued in this manner for a considerable amount of time. Was it a joke? Let's read on further; “...1. Boot your Workbench disk as normal. 2. Select EXECUTE COMMAND from the Workbench...". Obviously not.
So was it for Pat and Workbench or Answerfile? Er, no. The letter finished with: ‘If this tip is a winner. I would like Combat Air Patrol. Yours Sincerely, Chris Zurowski-Aiad."
Good grief. Erm, Chris -1 think you should go for a long lie down. Have an AF pin badge for trying, though.
Compared to the next letter, though, that one seems perfectly natural: AUGUST 1993 Dear GameBusters, On Superfrog, go to the options screen, and set your options to suit your needs. Press fire to exit then wait until the first screen appears, with the amount of points for each item that you collect. Press fire, then start your game. Superfrog will now be a lot faster than normal.
Paul Mitchell Glasgow Err... what substances have you been on, Paul? When you press fire to begin the game it makes no difference to Superfrog's speed. Nice try. However.
Sadly, these are all the pathetic tips we've had. What's up? Come on. Keep 'em coming, people. This column needs you.

Get AMOS for cheap The tutorial on these pages is designed to help you get the most from the programming language AMOS. If you don't have AMOS, but would like to have a go at programming your Amiga, you're in luck, because Amiga Formal featured the complete AMOS program on the January 1993 Coverdisk. Now, if you didn't buy that Issue, here’s another chance to get your hands on the truly spectacular AMOS language. Turn now to Page 150 and order your copy now.
Edge isn't like that.
Getting the your AMOS There's nothing better than digging out your copy of Project X and obliterating the swarm of aliens infesting your screen. Nothing that is apart from creating your very own alien attack swarm in AMOS... To be honest. Edge isn't for everyone.
CDG£ Thursday 19 August 1993.
HAVING GIVEN YOU all the groundwork to produce your own game, it's time to add ycl more enhancements.
More tweaks Last issue’s AMOS pages tied in very nicely with the PD-DIY feature which taught you how to go about creating your own demo.
Now. Though, it's back to our scheduled program. So far we've touched on a lot of things to do w ith games and other types of programs.
There’s so much to the program we could quite honestly run tutorials forever. This month we've got a little something to add to your game, based on everything you've learned over the past eight months.
Edge: decide for yourself.
AMOS extras A game isn't really playable until you’ve ironed out all the basic game concepts, like moving the player and the aliens about and making sure it's all working properly. So far we've covered everything to do with object movement except alien waves - those screaming alien gribblies which tear out of the skies and strafe you with largcamounts of death. As well as that we'll also be covering starfields.
Plus a call for all your best routines in AMOS.
Attack waves Up until now the attack waves in the arcade games that you've made have been elementary to say the least. In most AMOS literature you will find AMAL being pushed as the way to move stuff around, but as we've said previously it's best to do the work in AMOS and lose AMAL wherever you can.
The easiest and best way to do this is to create what we call a movement table, which is simply a list of coordinates describing the path of the sprites, and of course a table for each alien which needs moving. First you create dimensions for an array: Dim X(500),Y(500) and move the sprites using: Bob 1,X(N),Y(N),1 where N is the next coordinate in the list, obviously incrementing the numbers using a loop.
The alien attack ships will come swarming into your very own game once you’ve followed this month’s tutorial.
Most from COVERDISK You can also generate an attack wave, in the same way as you'd draw a line on screen. A sine wave is the easiest type of curve, but of course there are more types (see last issue for a circular or elliptical path).
A simple sine wave could be produced by doing the follow ing: Degree M=0 : D=360 For Z-l To D Inc M X(M)=M Y(M)=80’Sin(ZI-100 And that will be your movement table. You could go to the trouble of loading all these coordinates into an array (remembering of course to create a dimension of it first I. Tin experimenting w ith a table which sends a number of bobs in a circle anil then sends them off the screen. It's just a simple matter of making the loop for the circle, and then cutting off to a sub routine to send them off screen one by one.
Moving multiple bobs is the only other thing you have to know. Obviously if a group of aliens moves in a line like in our old example from BugHuntAMOS. Then you simply offset each bob from the one before creating a group of bobs which move together. But attack waves tend to send one alien on at a lime with a short delay. If this is the ease, all you have to do is have the one attack pattern, but feed it to the sprites one by one.
First you have to set up the variable buffer space. Obviously we are going to be using a few variables and the values arc going to push the system a little bit. You w ill sec that if you start the program w ithout this line you get an Out Of Memory message. Simply increase the buffer in increments of 5K at a time and you'll discover the correct amount of buffer space to add.
Sec Buffer 40 Dim X(IOOO).Y(10001 Dim D(16),NN 16) This gives you enough space to create dimensions for the arrays and use them. A 'gosub' command to the movement table sends you into that subroutine and we’ll come to that shortly.
After turning on the Double Buffering and doing all the other display jazz like clearing the screen, you will find you're back at the Aulohack command.
This sets up the automatic screen copying mode, which when you are using a Double Buffered screen (which we are in this case) synchronises your screen drawing operations with the movements of the blitter objects.
Setting Autoback to 0 engages manual mode, which means that screen operations are performed at the maximum speed possible, reducing any annoying Bicker.
MASTERING AMOS 0 spaceship image, in this case use Ihe ship from BusHunt. Bob image I. SP is the speed of the wave.
Obviously you can make each wave have a different speed depending on ihe level or ihe type of alien.
SHIP=1 : SP=4 Now we're ready for the main loop. B is the number of the Bob we're moving. SHIP is the image number, and X(P).Y(P) is the position of the current sprite on the screen. NM(B) is the direction of the sprite which will be added to Ihe direction we are already going.
AUGUST 1993 Do For B= 1 To NB If D(B) 0 Add DIB),-1 Else P=NM(B) : Bob B,X(P),Y(P),SHIP : Add NM(B),SP,1 To N End If Next B Loop And finally the movement table, which gives us the round path which the aliens will follow.
_MOVETABLE: Degree F=1 : W=S0 : H=100 CX=160 : CY=100 N=0 : NB=5 D=F*360 The variables contain all the information about the path the ships will take, with CX.CY being the centre of the wave. Once done then the next phase is to create the loop for Ihe actual positions of the sprites, and each sprile gets these coordinates one after the other so they follow each other around the screen: For P=1 To D Step F Inc N X(N)=W*Sin(P)+CX Y(N)=H*Cos(P)+CY Next P that each bob is about 10 time units apart. You can rack this figure up for more space between bobs or tune it down to practically link all
the bobs together for a big snake-like effect.
For B=1 To NB D(B)=B*10 NM(B)=1 Next B Return And there you have it. Attack waves at your very own fingertips.
There are obviously many different ways of creating attack waves, and these are limited only to your imagination and creativity in applying the rules set down here. The more surprising and hard your attack waves are. The more challenging your game will tie.
There are ways to increase the speed and fluidity of your attack waves, and compiling the game is obviously the first step.
Aaron Fothergill of the AMOS Club has even gone as far as to re-write the machine code of the compiler so it only stores necessary commands in the compiled code (not all of them though) which increases the speed of his games tenfold. For the rest of us an optimising multiple pass compiler would actually be a good thing, (in case you're listening Europrcss. Hmm?)
In any event, try drawing some complex mathematical shapes on the screen using plot commands, and then transfer these patterns to attack waves.
Obviously it has to be possible, by sheer weight of manual dexterity, to beat the waves in some way. So you have to strike a balance between easy and hard - it has to be possible to beat your aliens but not necessarily probable.
Another thing we haven't touched 011 is the animation of your aliens, obviously you can toggle an image number 011 each move, and start each alien off on a different image number to make them all seem totally independent. Like this: Start: a sprite on image 1 start next one on image 2 then image 1 image 2 etc To toggle between two values in AMOS you can use a little trick, which goes like this. Say you want to toggle between image 4 and image 10: T=4 Do Print T T=14-T Loop It's a clever trick which very quickly and simply enables you to Hip back and forth between two probably totally
unrelated variables or figures. That's one for the notebook, eh?
Starfields By plotting single dots to the screen you can employ one of the most popular uses of single points on a screen, which must be starfields. Starfields arc the kind of thing that you see in Star Trek: The Next Generation on Captain Pickard's main viewer.
When he says "Put it on the main viewer..." w hat you usually sec is the stars ripping past and some big alien ship threatening the Enterprise. So how do you create the starficld?
Next you have to set up the variables for the The delay is set up in the final loop, which ensures Start with a screen sire and clear it all up using the usual bits: Screen Open 0,320,200,16,Lowres Curs Off : Flash Off Cls 0 Now you're going to be moving things about and using multiple screens, so it's best to turn on Double Buffering too. Oh and hide the pointer while you think of it: Double Buffer Hide Now then. Set a couple of variables to half the screen height and half the screen width: CX=Screen Width 2 : CY=Screen Height 2 Easily done, and we'll lind out why in a moment. And finally in
the setup phase of the program, w e get a pair of commands we haven't really met before except perhaps in passing: Update Off Autoback 0 The Update Off command is a special command we don't use very often, and its function is to turn off the automatic updating of screen objects like bobs and sprites. This means you can then control the screen updates more precisely. For example if you've got a lot of sprites or bobs on screen, sometimes the screen updates will cause the bobs to flicker. This means they are being updated too often or out of sync w ith each other. The answer is to turn off the
screen update and update it yourself using Update. (This happens at the end of the program loop, usually.)
Next we set up some arrays: STARS=20 Dim X(STARS),Y(STARS) Dim X_STEP(STARS),Y_STEP(STARS) Dim C(STARS) Rem * Moving Bobs * Those listings in full Rem Set Buffer 40 Dim X(1000),Y(1000) Dim D(16),NM(16) GoSUb _MOVETABLE Double Buffer Load 'afbughunt sprites.abk" Flash Off Get Sprite Palette Cls 0 Autoback 0 SHIP=1 : SP=4 Do For B=1 To NB If DIB) 0 Add DIB),-1 Else P=NMIB) : Bob B,X(P), YIP) .SHIP : Add NM(B),SP,1 To N End If Next B Loop Stop J40VETABLE: Degree F=1 : W=50 : H=100 CX=160 : CY=100 N=0 : NB=5 : D=F*360 For P=1 To D Step F Inc N MASTERING AMOS X(N)=W*Sin(P)+CX YIN)=H*CosIP)+CY Next

Is set in this line, not unlike the vectors we used in the ping pong game: PHASE=RndICY) 16 XIST) =PHASE*X_STEP(ST) Y1ST)=PHASE*Y_STEP(ST) C1ST)=Rnd(14)+1 Next ST Now the main program loop, which calls the two subroutines and moves the stars: Do Cls 0 For ST=0 To STARS Gosub MOVE Next ST Screen Swap Loop End The
sub-routines which do all the work are at the bottom of Ihe program which randomises the initial position: INIT_STEP: X_STEP(ST)=8-Rnd(16) Y_STEP1ST)=8-Rnd(16) Return And the move sub routine governs the direction and speed of each star. 20 in total. As with a lot of AMOS which moves stuff around by calculation, you set up the initial circumstances and let the add x. add y lines do all the shifting for you. (You can produce attack waves like this if you likel) MOVE: Add XIST),X_STEPIST) Add YIST),Y_STEP(ST) X=X1ST) Add X,CX Y=Y 1ST) Add Y,CY After all the ADDs you check to see if the dots
have reached the edge of the screen. If they have you go back to INIT STEP to go back to the middle of the screen.
If X 0 or XsScreen Width or Y 0 or Y Screen Height Gosub INIT_STEP X(ST)=0 Y1ST)=0 End If The plot command finally plots the point on to the screen, after all that calculation.
Plot X,Y,2 Return You can sit and watch this for ages before you get bored. You can adjust the flow of stars to be affected by joystick input, which gives a feeling of movement through space, not unlike the old Elilf game, in fact.
All you have to do is alter MOVE to accept input from the stick using the JOY command. Then you pass this data to the algorithm in MOVE to shift the plot points of the stars up or down depending on the direction the stick is pointing. Another idea is to create a side view so the stars go by as if you're looking out of a side window of a spaceship. How about linking a keyboard key to switch procedures so that one key is looking out of the front of the ship, another out Ihe side, and another behind? It's all possible using plotted points and scrolling.
AUGUST 1993 Go for it So there you have it. Moving things with seeming intelligence and purpose in a completely random way.

'magazine most influencing buying decisions' by dealers in trade magazine Computer Trade Weekly for 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-slte' and we won't review it H it isn't finished just so we can claim an 'exclusive'. If a product is let down by poor features. H 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.

To must of us. Ihis means either you want lo write a letter or a report, perform some complex calculations that arc beyond the average handheld calculator, or you need to keep track of large amounts of information.
Need a word processor? How about a spreadsheet and a database? Don't buy them separately - you can have all three in one package! Jason Holborn checks out the latest in home office software.
There isn't one program that w ill do them all - you need a word processor for w riting letters. A spreadsheet for heavy number crunching and a database for filing and information storage. Buying all three separately can be expensive, so it's worth considering an 'integrated' package like Inter Activision's huerOffice.
The idea behind an integrated package is that the programs you need lo carry out these basics functions arc bundled together in such a way that they share a common user interface, can swap data (you can load a section of a spreadsheet into your word processor, for example) and all of them run from a single Shell program la menu, basically).
1 c C) c •o •o UJ Integrated business packages are big business these days, simply because they give you everything you want in one affordable package. Already quite a few are available for the Amiga including Europress' recently released Mini Office and Gold Disk's Office .'(see below). InterActivision have been quick to jump on the bandwagon loo w ith the release of IntcrOfficc. A spreadsheet, word processor and database in one box for just £50.
However. Interoffice isn't quite the integrated package that InterActivision would have us believe. It is about as integrated as any other software bundle, and this is precisely INTEROFFICE what it is. InterActivision have put all three of is available from their previously separate Amiga business pro- KOMPART UK grams (InterWoril. InlerSpreutl and InterBase) on 0727 868005 into one box. Still w ith three separate manuals, and all sharing the same pseudo Intuition-like Irontend. But then they always did! To be fair lo InterActivision. Interoffice does work as an attempt at an integrated
business package.
There’s no common Shell program that can be used to load cither of the three programs, but the rather non-standard user interface shared between the programs give them the sort of uniformity that an integrated package needs.
And they're not bad programs either!
T he first program is InterWoril which is a very good word processor. While it does not support the more cosmetic features that have made programs such as Digita's Worihmrth 2 such a roaring success (outline fonts, picture importation, full colour support), it's excellent if w hat you need front your WP is a program that can process words. As you would expect.
InterWoril excels at processing large sections of text and it offers all the usual functions for marking, moving and cutting w ads of text.
It also comes w ith a spelling checker that boasts a 157.5(H) word dictionary . A thesaurus is not included, but InterWoril does offer some extra features rarely found in word processing systems at this price, including soft hyphenation and index generation. And. Because the program doesn't mess around with graphics or pretty fonts, it chugs along at a very acceptable rate, rivalling Protest with ease.
InterWoril can also load worksheets from InterSpreiul. Although they have to be saved out to disk from InlerSpreail and then loaded into InterWoril. If huerOffice were truly integrated. This son of thing would be possible with a single keystroke.
INTEGRATED OFFICE ALTERNATIVES iiiifiiOtTi '¦Msm iSmjLr?.
Although Mini Offke for the Amiga wai only released last year, It has been around far 8-bits for 10 years now.
GOLD DISK OFFICE £69.95 ¦ Gold Disk UK 0743 350551 Gold Disk know a thing or two about writing solid Amiga applications and Office! Doesn't disappoint.
Based on cut down and reworked versions of existing Gold Disk products, such as Advantage (spreadsheet). Transwrite! (word processor) and PageSetter (DTP), plus a previously unpublished flat file database. Office offers value for money.
Although Office is based around programs that were sold separately, they work together surprisingly well thanks to file compatibility between the modules and a standardised Workbench 2.0-like frontend that has been incorporated into all four programs. In all, Gold Disk Office is without doubt the best home office package.
MINI OFFICE £59.95 ¦ Europress Software 0625 859333 Running from a central menu system, Mini Office for the Amiga offers a good word processor, a spreadsheet, a database and a graphing module all in one. It's a more complete package than Interoffice (Mini Office is a true integrated package rather than just a bundle), but it still comes second to Gold Disk's offering. Although the Amiga version of Mini Office was only released last year, the name has been floating around for almost 10 years.
FTp INTEGRATED SOFTWARE The Interoffice modules InterOffice's word processor is a fairly well-endowed text processor that sacrifices the more cosmetic graphics functions of word publishing programs such as Digita's Wordworth for raw text-editing power. Although it does not include a thesaurus, InterWord offers a comprehensive 137,500-word spelling checker and several quite powerful word processing functions such as soft hyphenation and index generation. For pure word processing tasks, InterWord is very good indeed.

AUGUST 1993 Next up is InlerSpread. The spreadsheet program.
All you have to do is to feed the spreadsheet a list of
numbers, tell it how they relate using a series of formulae,
and then the spreadsheet performs all the calculations for you.
If you later decide to make a change - if you made a mistake
entering a figure, for example - then the spreadsheet
automatically recalculates the entire sheet for you.
InlcrSpread shares the same look and feel of most spreadsheets, so you should feel at home if you've used one before. Up to 10 spreadsheets can be held in memory at one time and data can be transferred between them. The screen is divided into a matrix of cells that arc identified by their row column position. Each cell is capable of holding either a number, a string of text or a formula comprising any combination of InlerSpread'* 60 or so mathematic functions. InlerSpread can handle numbers in different formats including integers, floating point numbers and currency.
One important aspect of any spreadsheet is its graphing functions which enable you to transform the figures into graphs. ImerSpreud supports graphing of data, but this is not its strongest point (especially if compared to professional programs such as Gold Disk's ProCald). InlerSpread supports eight types of graph including bar. Line and pie charts.
Kinully, we come to InterBase. InterOffice'* database program. Once again. InterBase shares the same rather non-standard user interface. But it doesn't quite work in this program.
Can contain a number, a string of characters or a formula built up from any combination of the functions on offer. InlerSpread can also generate charts too - there's a total of eight different types on offer ranging from pie charts to stack and line graphs.
DATABASE IntffBdSf VI.12 Projrct: Unnwfdl E3C The weak link in InterOffice has to be its database program, InterBase. Although InterBase can handle most people's requirements, a rather quirky frontend makes it unfriendly. InterBase can handle four basic types of data - strings, dynamic strings, numbers and dates - although its built-in forms designer does allow IFF images to be attached to individual records, adding an extra dimension to your database.

LibU | InterOffice's spreadsheet is a fairly powerful character too.
Offering over 60 mathematical functions that covers scientific, trigonometry, calculation of annuities dates. Each and every cell PJE3[‘£] n It wouldn't be so bad if the programmers hadn't used non-standard names for some important aspects of the program - a database is called a 'table', for example. With most other databases, a table is a type of form used to display the contents of a database.
InterBase database files can consist of any combination of four basic data types - a fixed siring (a string of characters that is restricted to a user-specified number of characters), a dynamic string (like a fixed string but with no size restriction), numbers and dates. I don't like the way InterBase handles dates either - to enter a date you must type it in as a six figure number in the formal YYMMDD (for example. 4 August 1993. You'd type 930804).
This can be changed, but then you shouldn't have to change it anyway!
Like most databases. InterBase enables you to create one or more 'layout' which defines how the information is to be displayed on the screen or printed. Unfortunately, this is one aspect of InterBase that leaves much to he desired - although you can position both fields and their labels anywhere on the screen, you can't even add simple graphics such as boxes.
InterBase does let you tinker around with the layout a bit. But it's hardly up to the son of standards that Amiga users demand.
For a package that offers so much. £50 may seem like very good value, but integrated packages are nothing new now that the Amiga has matured. It's unfortunate some packages are called integrated systems when they arc- only a compilation of old software. The only true integrated business packages available for the Amiga are Europress" Mini Office and MSS' The Works’.. At the end of the day. However, we should judge InterOffice on the strength of the programs that it offers, but even here it doesn't quite cut it. There's nothing really wrong with the three programs, but there arc better compi
lations available. If you're in the market for such a package, you’re better off spending £70 on Gold Disk Office - for your extra money you not only gel a superior word processor, spreadsheet and database, but a very capable desktop publishing program to bool.
SPEED • • • • The programs work at a very acceptable rate and their user Interfaces are responsive.
DOCUMENTATION • • • Comprehensive, but the InterOffice manuals are about as readable as a British Rail timetable!
ACCESSIBILITY • • The word processor and spreadsheet programs are easy lo use. But the database Is a pig.

SU I 36 HOPE ST, HANLEY, STOKE ON TRENT ST1 5BS GVP have got
some stiff competition from ICD in the hard drive department,
as Put McDonald has found out... Ivifecta 500 LX Hard drive
80Mb £239 160Mb £359 200 £459 ¦ ICD you. There arc two
manuals, one for the hardware. And one for the software.
They arc thorough, but a bit confusing. This is because they
detail an awful lot of information for the different
configurations, and so not all the information is relevant for
one system. Better too much information than not enough,
though.
This hard drive does not have Workbench on it because ICD don't know whether you have Workbench 1.3 or 2.04. So you have to format the drive and put Workbench on to it yourself.
How you do this is well detailed, and the manual even tells you how to have both Workbenches available, assuming you have two different Kickstart chips.
The physical aspects of the drive are good, but not perfect. The case is contoured to match the style of the computer, bul it overhangs the back of an A500 or A500 Plus by about three inches. The construction of the circuit board is SMT. Which (in theory at least) means reliability and longer life. A universal power unit is supplied, which means you can power the hard drive just about anywhere in the world.
Two switches arc provided on the back of the hard drive. One controls whether the hard drive autoboots or not. The other determines whether the memory inside the Trifecta is added to the Amiga's total memory or not.
These switches (common on hard drives but not always found) arc useful for getting software to run that cither doesn't like the hard drive or the memory.
ICD have always made good expansions for niche markets. The Trifecta continues this tradition, especially if you want to connect more than just SCSI hard drives to your system. Zj AUGUST 1993 THE TRIFECTA IS the only A50() drive lhal comains a SCSI 2 interface. Usually, an A500 hard drive like this contains a SCSI controller lo make it work, a SCSI drive to store data on.
A SCSI port to connect extra hard drives, and a memory expansion (which is memory added to the computer - the hard drive doesn't store it).
ICD have added some extras to the Trifecta - it has an IDE controller, and you can use IDE type hard drives (cither 2.5 or 3.5- inch) instead of a SCSI drive. Better still, you can plug in SCSI 2 hard drives, which are faster than standard SCSI types. SCSI 2 drives are also available in much bigger sizes than either SCSI or IDE. So all three major current hard drive types can be used by this expansion.
In terms of numbers. IDE lets you have two hard disks connected. SCSI permits seven and SCSI 2 can have 15. In theory, you could store incredible amounts of data with this system. In practice, this means an awful lot of plugs, cables and money. Oh yes, ICD have put a Mini-Slot inside the board, so if you want to plug in a GVP PC-286 PC emulator (normally only possible on a GVP hard drive), then it will work on a Trifecta.
Adding RAM to the Trifecta differs to similar products. Instead of plugging in SIMM modules, it uses ZIP chips. I'm not fond of ZIPs, because they arc very sensitive to static.
If you ever need lo add RAM to this drive, it's wise lo get somebody experienced lo do it for 80Mb £239 160Mb £329) If you have an A1500 or A2000. You'll be pleased that ICD do the Trltecta on a card expansion for those machines. This costs £139 tor a bare card, or £239 with an 80Mb hard drive. The card does not work on an A3000 or A4000, but gives some impressive potential to the old time, serious user.
SPEED • • • • • SCSI 2 is the fastest hard drive standard you can get - and the other * are nippy too.
DOCUMENTATION •••• Quite detailed but both the A2000 and A500 versions are included - can be a little confusing.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • • Very good set-up utilities and various examples are included.
FEATURES • • • • • No other hard drive can do quite what this one can. Plenty ot extras VALUE • • • • Outstanding really, considering the potential ot the machines.
The board looks similar to the one Inside the A500 version's case, but there are a couple of differences.
For a start, there's no power supply - for another, no Mini Slot. However, it does exactly the same job and operates in the same way.
The Trifecta is also available In a ‘cut down' version - the Trifecta EC. This costs about £50 less than the LC units, but only has IDE and memory expansion potential. There is an upgrade kit (basically a couple of chips and a SCSI cable) which offers the potential of the lull LC version. Both LC and EC versions are available for the A500 external and the A150Q A2000 Trlfectas.
This upgrade kit Is specific to each version - the SCSI controller chips are different for the two versions.
MULTIMEDIA (Ti MULTIMEDIA IS ONE of these tilings that is constantly being touted as the Next Big Thing, but never really seems to arrive.
However, despite its lack of general acceptance. Several companies have been quietly working with this medium. Among these are Optonica. Who have been producing both multimedia products and software for the past few years now.
This disk is basically a promotional exercise for the company, but don’t let that pul y ou off. It’s divided into two sections, the first (and probably the most useful) of which is the clip art section, which contains over 2.000 pieces of colour clip art. With subjects ranging from electric ovens to toilets. Most of these are fairly simple, but they could be useful either in their own right or as a basis for creating your ow n draw ings.
Various images are also on the disk, w ith 26 textures suitable for using in ray tracing and a variety of scanned photographs of subjects that range from people to helicopters.
Also included are 99 sounds of various types - from aerosols to wind. All of these are saved as standard IFF files, so you can copy them straight off Workbench, although the CD includes software which enables you to view and save the files to floppy disk by pressing one button. There are four SoundTracker songs included on the disks, which cover a variety of sty les. Although these are not overly inspiring, some of the accompanying graphics are nice, including a rather good 15Mb I ism produced animation.
The other part of the disk contains six demonstration multimedia programs on such diverse subjects its safety precautions for Pandora CD Multimedia ¦ £4 99 ¦ Optonic Richard Baguley investigates a multimedia CD that contains over 2,000 pieces of clip art and 99 different sounds.
And it's all available for under fiver.
PANDORA'S CD is available from Optonica on 0455 558282 AUGUST 1993 nuclear power stations and Milton Keynes.
None of these are particularly huge, but they're all well thought out and show the son of thing you can do w ith multimedia concepts and the vast storage space of a Compact Disc. They all include digitised speech and graphics, and some include 1 4 screen video, which is rather effective, especially in the Insight Technology demo.
If you're interested in what multimedia can do. And you want a gixnl selection of clip an images, then this disk is well worth investigating. After all. For 14.99. how can you possibly go wrong'.’ 1) Pandora's CD It's a good demo CD. And over 2,000 clip art images and 99 sounds can't be bad for a fiver.
Some ot the interactive multimedia programs are quite interesting, if you're lucky fsorry? - £d) enough to live In Milton Keynes.

Pat McDonald drives his Amiga to the limits with a hot new piece of hardware.
UP UNTIL NOW, if you wanted to add multiple hard drives to your Amiga, you had to invest in SCSI (Small Computer Systems Interface) based systems. These allow up to seven devices to be daisy chained together, to give huge amounts of storage. SCSI hard drives are expensive, though, compared to other types - and there's another snag.
The trouble is. The new AGA Amigas (A4000 and A12(H)) don't allow you to connect SCSI drives as standard - they lack a SCSI controller. Instead, they support IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) type drives. IDE units are cheaper than SCSI drives, although they are generally slower and only allow for two hard disk units to be connected at once.
Luckily. SyQuest have just introduced this unit. It doesn't look particularly special - just like a floppy drive with a slightly larger hole than usual, and an IDE connector at the back.
But it doesn't take floppies - it takes hard disk cartridges which can store up to l()5Mb each.
SyQuest IDE Drive These are not magneto optical in nature.
Magneto-optical disks are a cross between conventional hard drives and Compact Discs.
They use a laser beam to heat up the surface of ihe disk, leaving a binary code. Then a conventional magnetic head reads the disk. Which means that, although they compare very well with hard disks when reading data, they are much slower when writing data to a disk. This unit does not have that problem at all.
£.500 ¦ SyQuest Technology Things haven't changed that much from the A500 A2000 days!
Speaking of the A500 and A2000. Ow ners of those machines can use the SyQuest, but it's going to be a bit of a bodge for the former.
The Tnfccta (reviewed on page 121) can control the SyQuest IDE drive very well. On the A2000. Just put it in the spare floppy bay and connect it to the ICD board. A1500 owners already have two drives, though.
The tricky bit for A500 owners is connecting it to the Trifccta and mounting it - you can't stick it inside a Trifccta (because then you can t swap cartridges) or inside the A500 (because the only place to put it is where the (loppy disk drive is). Perhaps Power will also do this drive in an external expansion box for such people, but that wiil depend on demand.
OK, (his is a cartridge hard drive (often called a removable media drive). AmigaDOS doesn't really support such units, although the Diskchangc command deals with it. Don't 125 As it is, this IDE drive is only really suitable for use in an A-l(HX). Simply mount it in the spare floppy drive bay. Plug it to the IDE connector and use HDToolBox to forma! It.
Although, in theory, the same procedure will work on an A12(H). In practice the A1200 cannot write data on to the drive consistently. As we went to press, the manual was not available. But if it's as good as the 120Mb SCSI unit's reviewed in Ah 44. It will be thorough.
A1200 owners w ill have the option of using this SyQuest. Power Computing plan to produce it in an external version which will he more expensive. So (as usual) the expansion will be more expensive to 'domestic' Amiga owners than for 'serious' Amiga owners.
SYQUEST IDE DRIVE is available from Power Computing on 0234 843388 SEALED CARTRIDGE FORMATS ous combination approach, and will (in mine and many other people’s opinions) become extremely popular within the next five years.
Cartridge formats are like a floppy disk, In that you can put different cartridges in and out of it; and it's like a hard disk. In that you can put many millions of bytes of information on to each cartridge. Syquest are the world leaders In this area.
Don't think that you can mistreat technology like this and get away with it. You cannot use these drives on end or upside down - they tend to wipe cartridges when you do that. Also, when not using a cartridge, It's wise to store It away in its holder, to prevent that airborne pollution from knobbling It.
The main difference between a hard disk and a floppy disk is that a hard disk is vacuum sealed into the drive.
This means that airborne rubbish like hair, smoke particles and dust cannot get into the drive. Which means that the heads which read and write information can be positioned to within a tiny fraction of an Inch above the magnetic disk.
Therefore the data can be written on to a much smaller area of the disk, giving much more storage capacity than a similar sized floppy. One manufacturer (Seagate) likes to use this analogy: imagine a jumbo jet flying one metre above the ground - and counting the blades of grass as It goes.
Removable media drives like this one are the obviexpect to throw cartridges in and out of it willy nilly - you need to set up your system to deal with loads of different cartridges.
So it's not a perfect drive, but it wasn't that long ago that a 105Mb hard drive cost as much money. At about £500 (Power have not pinned the pricepoint yet) this unit represents extremely good value for money.
AUGUST 1993 But the most important point is that A4000 owners do not have to shell out for a SCSI interface board just to use removable media drives. In fact, this unit costs about half the price of a SCSI unit plus SCSI interface - and that's got to be good news. This looks like it is the hottest drive to hit the Amiga scene in 1993 - I wonder what other sizes SyQuest are planning?
SPEED • • • • • The fastest removable hard disk that I have ever seen.
DOCUMENTATION • • • • Very minimal as yet - but there's no reason why it Isn't as good as the last one I saw.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • The only snag is sorting up an Icon lor Dlskchange.
FEATURES • • • • • Removable media tor AGA Amigas - a market niche just got tilled.
VALUE • • • • • It's much, much cheaper than the equivalent SCSI system.

MUSIC SAMPLER You don't need a studio to produce great sounds
on your Amiga - with the right kit you can do it in your own
home.
Andy Nuttall plugs in and powers up... Home Music Kit Sampling and effects package ¦ £69.99 ¦ Power Computing "NO ONE HAS HAD this much fun since the Video Game" entices the promotional blurb 011 the box. Which video game would that be. Then? Pong? Pac Man! Sarcasm aside, the Home Music Kit. Like other sampling packages, is only as much fun to use as the sounds that you create with it.
The Kit comprises three pieces of hardware to plug into your Amiga, which are described in the box out below. Software-wise, a single disk is included with the package, which contains two main programs - Digital Studio III and Real-Time Sound Processor II.
Let's take a closer look at the software... Digital Studio III is very much like any other sampling program supplied with sampling cartridges such as Technosound Turbo or Stereo Master. It enables you to record sounds into the memory of your Amiga via the sampling cartridge, and manipulate them.
The system works in either mono or stereo modes, which means that you can record both channels at the same time from a CD player or tape machine. Radio buttons are used to control the program - click on Monitor lo hear what is being fed into the cartridge, or click on Record to sample the sound into memory. It's AUGUST 1993 all pretty simple stuff, as long as you know how to use a cassette recorder!
When the sound has finished recording, the waveform is displayed on the screen. You then use the mouse to remove unwanted bits of the sound, cut and paste pans of the sample, or loop certain sections. When you have the sound you want, you can save it to disk in IFF HOME STUDIO KIT is available from Power Computing on 0234 843388 HARDWARE - WHAT'S INSIDE THE BOX These two ports are next to each other on all Amigas.
And on most Amigas this doesn't cause a problem. On the A1200, however, they are a little closer together than with older machines, and unfortunately there is no way of connecting the two cartridges to the Amiga at the same time. However. Power are looking Into this problem, so if you have an A1200 check with them first.
The speakers which are supplied with the main kit are of the standard variety sold as add-ons for personal stereos. These take two AA batteries each, or you can use a separate power supply. The sound created is not bad - it's better than your monitor speakers, but don't expect miracles.
The two cartridges are built to a very high standard.
Opening up the plastic cases reveals circuit boards with surface mounted components - which are generally more reliable than their traditional counterparts.
Surface mounting also reduces the need for hand- soldering. So reliability is increased even further.
There are some problems with connection, however. There are no attachment screws on the cartridges, which means that they can't be secured to the Amiga - this could cause problems If you need to move your machine. There's also a problem with the cases. The MIDI interlace plugs into the Amiga's serial port, while the sampler plugs into the parallel port.
Real-Time Sound Processor III is an effects processor package which makes use of the sampling cartridge. If you load up an effect, then play music into the cartridge, the effect will be applied to the music and then output from the Amiga. This is similar to the many professional effects units which can cost hundreds of pounds.
Obviously the quality leaves a little to be desired when compared to more professional gear, but for a beginner making music this package certainly teaches a thing or two about how effects actually work. Each of the 35 effects are accompanied by a schematic diagram which shows the path of the sound through the effect (see picture left). Each component of the effect is labelled, and the label is repeated on the right side of the screen along w ith a sliding bar which adjusts the value of the component.
The only thing which lets the package down slightly is the manual. Written by the Italian company Adept Development who created the package, it explains the basics reasonably well, but it doesn't even attempt to explain some of the more detailed techniques.
For example, the enveloper effect has an ADSR unit, and while it tells you what an envelope is. It doesn't really explain ADSR apart from mentioning the words Attack.
Decay. Sustain and Release in passing. This could have been so much better w ith just a little more care.
If you only want a sampler then you can buy one for under £30. But The Home Music Kit offers more than that, and as a kit it is ideal for an introduction to electronic music. 1 speed • • • • Most operations are almost instant - Including the sample manipulators.
DOCUMENTATION • • Poor English In the manual, and it doesn't really explain all that you need to know.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • The sampler Is a doddle. The effects processor Is moro complex, but on-screen diagrams help.
FEATURES • • • • The usual features of a sampling package, coupled with an extensive range of effects.
VALUE • • • • All the gear separately would cost you about the same - £70. So save yourself the bother.
Form. There is a sequencer as well, bul it's only one-track and therefore not really worth mentioning. (If you want to sequence your samples together, use ProTracker from last month's Coverdisk.)

Do you fancy yourself as a bit of a musician? Well if you produce music using your Amiga, whether you use ProTracker or Bars and Pipes Professional, then we've got the ultimate compo prize for you!
Win a day in a top recording studio!
EVELYN GLENNIE IS the world's top percussionist (check out our News Special in AF47 if you don't believe us) and we re offering you the chance to spend a day at her Heritage recording studio, with Amiga sound recordist extraordinaire Greg Malcangi adding a professional touch to your own songs. And it doesn't stop there, we re also giving you a copy of Bars & Pipes Professional 2!
What makes Greg such an Amiga supremo?
Well, Greg sums it up best himself The Amiga with B&P Pro 2 is the most powerful sequencing tool on the market at the moment, the features of B&P are unrivalled, and with the power of the A4000 and CBM s on-site warranty. The A4000 is a valuable tool for amateurs and professionals right up to studio level." Comments like this are becoming rife as the Amiga becomes more popular with professional musicians, and with an A4000 040 at the core of studios like Heritage, the Amiga can only go from strength to strength!
With a day to spend at Heritage Studios, the winner will be able to take advantage of features such as 16 track 20-bit digital recording, with 48 channels of MIDI. The winning musician s will be using B&P Pro running on an A4000, with a host of effects units, samplers and keyboards They will also be guided through their recording by Greg, so don't worry if you've never been in a studio before.
AUGUST 1993 As well as the recording time, both the winner and runner-up will receive a copy of Bars & Pipes Professional 2 sequencer from Blue Ribbon Soundworks. Which received a Format Gold 90 per cent in AF46. If you have B&P Pro 2. Then you can choose from the range of Blue Ribbon products instead, like the Super Jam! Music creation package, or Triple Play Plus, which gives a total of 48 MIDI channels when plugged in your Amiga. So check out the How to Enter' box right now! 'I) HOW TO ENTER What you have to do is create a piece of music using your Amiga. This could be either using the
Amiga’s internal sound and sample capabilities, or using your Amiga to drive external MIDI instruments if you have them.
When you have created your music, record It on to either ordinary cassette or DAT, and send it in to Deborah Thackery-Tyres at the following address: Heritage Studios. Heritage House. Main Street.
Upton, Huntingdon PE17 5YF.
Your entry must arrive by 1 October 1993, which gives you a full three months to compose your masterpiece. The entries will be judged by a panel including Evelyn Glennie, Greg Malcangi and a member of Commodore. The prize will be presented at the Future Entertainment Show on 11-14 November (the winner and runner-up will be given tree tickets to the show and transport within the UK, if necessary, will be arranged).
Please supply a list of equipment you have used, so that the judges can take this Into account when listening to your music - that way, a piece of music created using ProTracker will have as much chance of winning as a piece created using professional equipment. Don't send an original master of your music, because it cannot be returned to you.
THE RULES Employees of Future Publishing and Commodore Business Machines may not enter. Entries will be judged by the panel after the closing date of 1 October 1993. The judging panel's decision is final.
JOYSTICK? I WANT A MOUSE!
136 AUGUST 1993 ROBO SHIFT 2 is available from Meedmore Ltd on 051-521 2202 You ton power up your joystick, or ovon give It a now identity of the long-tailed type.
DP IBM Analog Interface Joystick mouse switcher ¦ £ I 4.95 ¦ Digi Print DP IBM ANALOG JOYSTICK INT ERFACE Is available from Lightwave on 051-630 5003.
Robo Shift 2 Constantly unplugging your mouse lo plug in the joystick for a quick game of Defender is not only a pain, hut it's bad for the connectors.
With all that repeated insertion and removal, something, as they say. Has got to give.
Chances are that eventually it will either he the mouse port or the plug, leaving you with a dead rodent. Plus, if your Amiga set-up is anything like most of ours, the rear of your machine will resemble the offcuts bin of a cable factory, making finding the appropriate cable rather difficult.
The Robo Shift is designed lo gel around Joystick mouse switcher ¦ Meed more Ltd
19. 99 this, by allowing you to leave both the mouse and joystick
plugged in. It's a small grey box.
Approximately two inches wide, one inch deep and half an inch high. Two sockets (for the mouse and joystick) are on the front of this box. With a couple of different coloured LEDs indicating which is currently active. A cable runs from the right of the box and plugs into the mouse port of the Amiga. It draws the minimal amount of power it needs from this port.
To switch between the mouse and joystick you just press the left button on the one that isn't active - control switches over to the other device, and is indicated by the LED on the unit. The previous Robo Shift had the annoying habit of passing this through to the Amiga, meaning that you could activate things that you don't want to. Fortunately, the new version doesn't do this, and the only effect of clicking is to change over the activated device.
The Robo Shift 2 also includes a mouse emulator and autofire module, which arc activated by pushing the joystick up or down when you click to select it. These modules arc also available on their own (see box below).
The mouse emulator and autofire modules built into the Robo Shift 2 are also available as separate modules which fit In between the joystick and the port on the back of the Amiga. The Cybershot autofire module (£5.99) gives any joystick autofire, although It's not switchable. So you're stuck with it unless you keep plugging and unplugging It. As with most joysticks, control over the rate of autofire is lacking.
The Mock-e-Mouse Mouse emulator (£8.99) attempts to turn your joystick Into a mouse, although its success is limited.
Moving the mouse pointer is possible with some joysticks (such as the Konix Speed King), but It refuses to work with others The aulofirc option works fine on any joystick without this built in. But it's a pity that it's not more user controllable, as the rate of fire can't Ire altered. The mouse emulation works with most drives, and is almost useable with a joypad. However, it refused to work with some joysticks, and the lack of a right button on most joysticks means that this is rather useless. Why you would you want this module on a device for switching between a joystick and a mouse is a
mystery - why not just switch over to the mouse? It's probably designed for use with certain flight sims. Such as ProFlighl. Which play better with the mouse If you want lo avoid constantly switching leads over, the Robo Shift 2 achieves this. But it is rather expensive, and the autofire and mouse emulation facilities are of limited use.
Richard Baguley O (in particular the Powerplay Competition Pro). The other problem is although most joysticks have two buttons, these are usually wired together, meaning that there is no equivalent of the right mouse button, so you can't access menus.
Md 70% IF YOU'RE A flight sim freak, you will probably be bemoaning the lack of any decent analogue joysticks for the Amiga. The PC.
However, has many models, including several weird shaped models designed to complement flight sims by acting as aeroplane yokes.
Unfortunately, the Joystick interface on the PC is very different, so up until now it hasn't been possible to connect these to an Amiga.
The DP IBM Analog Interface is a short grey cable, about a foot long, with a standard Amiga 9-pin plug on one end. And a 15-pin socket where the IBM joystick plugs in. This also has a three-way switch which alters its sensitivity, as joysticks don't all act the same.
Once you've plugged in your analogue joystick. It acts like a standard Amiga one.
Most flight sims support the use of analogue joysticks, and it makes programs such as Knights of the Sky far easier lo control.
However, many programs don't allow you to use the buttons on the stick, so you have lo use both this and the keyboard. The DP interface passes the signals correctly, but the software doesn't pick it up. However, playing some games such as FI5 Strike Eagle II. And using a large yoke type stick adds a new dimension to flying. This adapter is only as good as the joystick you plug into it. But the interface works well, and allows you to use all of the joysticks available for the IBM PC.

I can imagine the cells inside, which also hare a beauty.
There s beauty not just at the dimension of one centimeter: there's also beauty at a smaller dimension."
Richard Feynman. Nobel prize winning physicist, responding to an artist's criticism that he fails to appreciate the beauty of a flower.
But there's more to it. Beneath their surface lies a complex structure of cells; inside these, chemicals transmute and are traded; their constituents, neutrons, protons and electrons, dance to hidden rhythms - all are patterns of beauty.
Many Amiga owners might gasp at the pretty graphics of an Amiga game; but many more want to look further, deeper. It is for these owners that Amiga Shopper caters.

Nine out of ten Amigas said their owners preferred cheap or free software. Richard Baguley checks out the meaty chunks amid the gravy sodden world of Public Domain games and utilities.
WWII PLANES DtgraPhics Clip art is extremely useful for making your documents look more impressive, as long as it's relevant. So. If you're working on something to do with World War II planes, this could be useful. It contains 25 illustrations of. Surprise surprise. World War II aircraft. All are high resolution, two colour screens, so there should be no problem printing them. This is only one of 60 disks on various topics such as sport and frame borders.
They have all obviously been digitised from various sources, but they all seem to be of high quality, and would print out well from most DTP or word processing programs.
TRONS HIGHLAND PD If you needed any evidence that films influence computer games, this disk is a good place to start. It's a compilation of five games based around the light cycles' sequence in the film Iron, where you manoeuvre a bike around a playing area leaving a trail behind you. If you or your opponent crashes into this, it's Game Over. All of the games on this disk arc based around the same idea, although some add other factors like obstacles on the playing area, or options for up to six players. All of the games arc pretty good, bul there are a few that really do stand out from the
crowd.
AGA TOOLS 1 AND 3 UTIL CYNOST1C U0142 CYNOSTIC UOT43 It's about time a collection like this appeared for all those eager new A1200 and A4000 030 owners out there. AGA Tools and 3 Util contains a wide variety of programs and utilities which are useful specifically for these machines. There's a new version of Rcnd24 (featured on the subscribers' disk this issue), a datatype for viewing GIF files with multiview and a variety of programmers' utilities for dealing with the new AGA modes. Also included is the newest version of Ihe popular picture viewer PPShow. Which now supports the new
modes.
There's no sign of volume 2. But volume 3 contains several more utilities, including an AGA version of Clouds, the popular fractal cloud generator, a HAM-8 JPEG viewer and a 256-colour plasma generator.
Continued overleaf 155 AUGUST 1993 STOCK CONTROLLER INVOICE MASTER 2 ESSEX COMPUTER SYSTEMS encourages him to support this and write further versions to the software. Both programs share the same colourful, easy-to-use interface, and are suitable for small businesses. I don't think you'd be able to run a multinational using these programs though. Invoice Master produces good, professional documents and keeps these on tile for future reference, while the stock control program provides a good interface.
Stock Control contains all of the usual stuff you'd expect on such a program, with user definable re-order levels, preferred suppliers and comments for each product.
It's good to see some more serious software finally appearing on the Amiga, since this is an area that's been rather lacking over the last few years. We did look at a stock control program in AF43, and now a couple more are available as Licenceware. This means that they do cost slightly more than normal PD programs (£3.50). but part of this does go straight to the programmer, which £] £| HDD RECORD 6oldf tsh Iplonitri DELETE SORT RECORDS IKE FILE LOAD FILE si ams ti romc

FRED FISK DISK 844 Designing logic circuits can be a pain. All those NOT, AND and NOR gates can get rather confusing, and predicting the behaviour of circuits is a complete pain, involving a large amount of matrix mathematics, a degree in higher mathematics and a lot of patience. Programs do exist which will simulate the behaviour of a circuit for you, but they aren't particularly friendly, mostly being text based. This makes full use of the Amiga's point-and-click interface, meaning that to build a circuit takes only a few mouse clicks to place the various types of logic gates, and a few
more to connect them together in the correct fashion.
Once you've built your circuit, you can try running it to see exactly how it behaves. The state of each of the logic gates is shown, so you can trace the clock pulses through the circuit. This is invaluable if you want to pinpoint precisely a problem In a circuit. If you are interested or involved in electronic design, then this program could be extremely useful. If you're not, you'll probably be bored silly.
FRED FISH 156 AUGUST 1993 PDSOFT sssMsfo ------- |JDb.. Hsfc A- m JB!L. Ffils j Pi*£E jB Your chance to sing along with Tosmin Archer in your own home. All together now: 'I blame you for the moonlit... ' Despite rumours to the contrary. Fred Fish is still going strong. He's an American who compiles sets of disks containing the best Amiga PD and shareware available.
Fred's been going strong for several years, but recently people haven't been obtaining disks direct from him.
And he's considering giving up. Which would be a shame.
This disk has several excellent programs, including an Amiga Pascal compiler, a Workbench backgammon program, a multitasking audio CD player program for the CDTV and A570 which allows you to play a CD and use the Amiga at the same time (not forgetting the karaoke functions), a maths graph plotting program and a real-time reflection mapper which includes full source code. If you want disks direct from Fred, it'll cost you $ 4 per disk, but you will be getting some of the best Amiga PD in the world mailed directly to you.
FAKE FAST MEM CYNOSIK U0141 Having 2Mb of chip memory on your Amiga is all very well, but sometimes it can be pain. If you're using a program that needs fast memory and you haven't expanded your A1200's memory, you have a problem.
Fortunately, an anonymous PD writer has a solution, in the form of a small program which reboots the machine and restricts it to 512K of chip memory. With FakeFasl Mem. You can keep the benefits of the AGA chip set and you can also have fast memory on an A1200. Or increase the amount of fast memory you have on an A3000.
AM FM SAMPLE DISK CYNOSTIC SOIOO Another in the collection of disks produced by the Disk music magazine AMIFM. The disk contains 19 samples. With subjects which are rather, erm. Unusual. The sounds have titles such as Scream (female). Scream (male). Eyeballs Being Gouged. Hungry Monster and Strangulation. But it's all done in the best possible taste.
All of the sounds have been sampled with minimal levels of background noise. Unfortunately, they are long, so there are only 19 on the disk. 1 would have thought a wider selection of shorter samples would have been of more use. But for £2 it's good value.
UCHESS CYNOSTIC 30097 This is an excellent chess program, but unless you've got an AGA machine (an A1200 or A4000) and over 4Mb of RAM. Don't even think about it. The graphics are in 256 colours, and are stunning, although it can be a difficult to differentiate between the pieces and the board. The program is based on the old PD chess program GNUCIiess. But it's been rewritten and epitomised for use on the new breed of 32-bit Amigas. Included is a list of textbook openings, which can be added to.
Since they are saved as a text file. It's one of the fastest and best chess games I've come across, and the excellent graphics give it a really polished feel. 'I) TOP 1 O DEMOS OF THE MONTH These are the 10 most popular demos from the following PD library... SEASOFT Kick 1.3 1200 V-Morph 1050 3.

Rave on! Got any E. man.‘ Hr. And other stereotypical comments supposedly spoken by racegoers.
IX-ar God. This demo is the epitome of mind-melding demos. That doesn't mean it's the best - Stale of the Art and Jesus on E's are better and more varied - but it just doesn't stop flashing. Stroboscopic effects abound, while still images an- flashed up on the screen in time with the music, which is rave-style and very repetitive.
Continued overleaf AUGUST 1993 A typical example of Japanese Anim artwork, lovingly crafted and honed, and brought to your Amiga.
From Suntcam comes a three disk set of artwork copied from various films taken from the range of imported Manga videos from Japan. These include Eyes. Urotsukidoji and the superb Akira. In fact, the Akira drawings have a whole disk, with lots of hand-drawn stills from the film, along with flashes of the logo - excellent stuff.
The graphics are w iped in and faded out imaginatively. And the images are truly excellent - they're colourful and well-defined, capturing Ihe feel of the original artwork well.
The music is reasonably typical of the film styles - deep and booming for Akira, light and twee for the other films. Unfortunately there's no option lo turn the music off. But you can always turn the volume down on your monitor.
Manga is a growing industry in the UK. If you arc interested in watching one of the films featured here, but you can't find them in your local shops, you can contact Manga Video on 08I-74X 9(KKI. Also you can ask for details of the Manga club, where you can gel hold of T-shirts, caps and other merchandise.
For your felicitation and delectation, Andy Nuttall has rounded up (well dug deep into the mail box, actually) a superb sample of delicious Public Domain demos - from gorgeous graphics and artis- tics animations to cute childrens musical favourites.
A train with attitude? Motorhead must have thought so - it is featured on their Rock V Roll album cover.
Sanity present another megademo, with nothing special to offer apart from some superbly drawn images - most notably a horror train (sec picture above) and a really good human skull. It also includes simple texture mapping which breaks up the usual demo that just features thousands of dots swimming around the screen.
The soundtrack's not bad. Using good samples, but it does get a bit repetitive after a few minutes. Yeah, it s good, but it doesn't break any new ground.
INTERFERENCE RETINA EURO TELESCAN ONE TELESCAN BAIT MASKING TELESCAN The latest work from Amiga animation genius Eric Schwartz is also one of his shortest. As you probably know, Eric uses Gold Disk's Moviesetter program to put together his anlms. This anim was originally put together on the Macintosh to demon- Smug? Yep, thot'j Worm. Smug because he has a scary mask which he knows will frighten off all nasties... strate the powers of Animation Studio on the Mac - also by Gold Disk.
Anyway, now It’s on the Amiga, and as you would expect from Schwartz the animator, it's very good. Having covered such subjects as fighter aircraft and the on-going romance between Amy the Squirrel and Flip the Frog, he now turns to that great pass time - fishing. Not the easy-going, relaxing 'sport' side of things, but the side that the poor.
Innocent bait sees while sitting on the wrong end of the fishing line.
The little worm, as you can see from the pictures here, has a scary mask which he uses to foil the nasty fish with. Having frightened off two fish, he tries the mask trick with a third - except this fish Is particularly laid-back and cool, and fools our poor hero with a cunning plan. Another brilliant animation - keep them coming. Eric.
Col me o Bar. It's dovor how a goad artist can him around personaBtius - which one looks cute now?
PD MUSIC & GFX DEMOS REVELATIONS CYNOSTIC PD, DISK P0028 Revelations Is a one-disk slideshow full of images drawn by Rank, a member of the group Cryptoburners. These are the coders who brought you the excellent ProTracker program featured on last month's Coverdlsk. Each image is depicted In high or medium resolution, which are not easy modes to work in anyway, but the level of detail and the use ot colour are superb.
The main subjects of the slideshow are female and to Rank's credit the Images are more sensual than sexual. Having said that, there Is the odd nipple or two on show, so I wouldn't recommend it for your children. Other images include a sword-wielding warrior, a strange 'thing from the pit' type creature, and in case you forgot that this is real men's stuff - an aeroplane. For a quick flash of the 16-colour artwork on the disk, take a peek at the little oval picture just above the Demo Zone headline on the previous page.
Although it's mostly copied by hand from original artwork. Revelations Is an amazing feast of Amiga graphics. If you have an open mind, or an affinity for pictures of ladies wearing not many clothes, then take a look, because It's about the best you're likely to get.
It's definitely not for you if you're even slightly epileptic - and I’m serious about tins - my head ached after watching il. It’s serious stuff, ideal if you want to set up a rave in your home. Switch the lights down, turn the volume up. And get raving.
AUGUST 1993 THE QUEEN DEMO HEX HEROES PD Oh no! I'm not sure I can bring myself lo review this one. Still, there aren’t many new demos around this month, so I'll have to.
Anyway, the gist of il is that there arc these Queen fans who have set up a PD house called Hex Heroes.
Nothing wrong w ith that, of course - good luck to them. Unfortunately, they decided to produce their own PD disk as a tribute to the late Freddie Mercury.
Aaaaaggghhh! I wonder how many people would really be interested in some poorly digitised pictures of Mr Mercury and his popular band in concert, along with some abysmally digitised images of video and record covers, and the video for It's a Kind of Music.
Not many. I reckon. Not only that, but the self-styled 'Hex Heroes' actually have the audacity to charge a shareware fee of £2 for the disk! Utterly amazing. In a world where demo coders like LSD. Sanity.
Cryptobumers cl al can produce stunning high-quality products on PD. This doesn't even warrant the cost of a disk, never mind two quid. Freddie, bless his heart, must be turning in his grave.
160 CHILDREN'S FAVOURITES WtP 1 7 BIT, DISK 2501 Hooray! Although I never saw Children's Favourites I. this disk contains five tunes which are a kind of ‘musical box' rendition of popular children's tunes - Polly Pul the Kettle On, Piggy Wiggy Wee, Goosey Goosey Gander. I Saw a Ship A-sailing By and There Was a Little Woman. No frills, no spills, just basic graphics lo illustrate each song, and the lyrics so that you can sing along. It s a kind of basic karaoke. I suppose.
Don't laugh - this is an excellent disk that will keep kids happy for a while, and introduce them lo the world of the Amiga at a very early age.

Miscellaneous DaMie SmcMCM 150 AMIGA ADVICE SPOILT FOR CHOICE FROM: COLIN YOUNG. GLASGOW I currently own an ageing A500 with Workbench
1. 2 and 3Mb of memory. The compuler is mainly used for word
processing, at least 80 per cent of the time, using Kindwords
2 and now WordWorlli 2. I was intending to buy an A1200 with
an 80Mb hard disk, hut am now considering the new A4000 030
due to its faster speed and extra memory.
11 Will all A1200 software run on the A4000 030?
Workbench Is there anyone who isn't considering buying an A1200 or A4000?
One or two, as Pat McDonald answers some technical letters.
, LOCKED SCAR I connector. I am thinking of upgrading my computer to either an A1200 or an A4000 030, but first could you please clarify a few details: SWAPPEI AND SILE A well written game will use ihe exlra power of ihe CPU lo some degree - faster frame updates on llighi simulations, for instance. A poorly written or unfinished game would either refuse lo work at all. Work but with bugs, run too fast, or run slower (it has been known - really).
165 AUGUST 1993 As the two machines have become available within a short space of time. I would think that most software would. Simply because if somebody writes something on an A1200. They have the opportunity to test it on a A4000 030. If the A4000AI30 had been launched a year later, then there would be more incompatibilities.
The CPU chips in each machine are different - very similar but not quite the same. So although I would expect some 'A1200 only' programs to be released, the vast majority should be compatible between the two machines. Programmers generally dislike laclors which slop their software selling.
One minor quirk is that the video connector on the A4000 does not seem to have a 12 volt power line, which means some expansions that plug in there do not work. If Ihe expansion can have an external power supply to get its 12 volts from, or does not need a 12 volt power line, then it doesn't matter.
WHICH DISPLAY FROM: JOHN LLEW ELLYN, TAUNTON At present my computer set-up consists of an A500 with a Mitsubishi TV acting as a monitor, via the
4) Are there any reasons, cost aside, why I should not buy an
A4000030 in preference to an A1200?
Yes. Exactly the same. But the CPU is still different.
3) Does the A4000 030 have the same fall back emulation modes
as the A1200?
There is a multitude to choose from - Commodore are launching new dualsync 1940 and 1942 monitors specifically designed lo work with the A1200 and A4000. Assuming you want to work with an interlaced. Flicker free screen, a VGA (with an Ami-VGA interface) will give you about 480 lines of display. A good multisync or SVGA, however, will give you at least the full 512 lines of PAL interlaced screen. There is a Commodore interface that takes the 23-pin output front an Amiga and converts it into SVGA 15-pin D Type SVGA.
Ideally, a monitor which can automatically sense whether it is getting I5KH . (non-interlaced double scan) or 31Kll (interlaced scan). If il can't sense what signal it's getting, can it be manually adjusted externally with a knob? The only real solution is to take your computer to a monitor shop and see w hat works.
It is correct. The very expensive. 31 KID only monitors. Such as the NEC 4D. Arc not suitable for displaying typical game screens - they introduce ghosting and flicker. If you don'l mind flickery interlaced screens, but want rock steady arcade games, then a standard monitor (Philips 8833. Commodore 1084 or
1085) w ill do the job.
With the A1200, yes. Your TV should work fine. With the A4000 030. Probably not. Unless you can manually select SCART input on the television - usually the channel indicator swaps over lo 'AV'.
I) Will I still be able to use my TV with these machines, and if
so w hat modes and resolutions will thev work in?
31 I have heard that some monitors will not work in low resolution, non-interlaced modes. Which ones?
FROM: A R STEW ART. LANARK I've had a 1Mb A5(HI for about 10 months now. And it has developed a few problems. I've lost the sound on it, and on one mouse port the mouse buttons are switched over (same with a joystick). But the worst problem is that I am unable to do relatively simple procedures. An awful lot of stulf doesn't work beyond the introductory screens, although W orkbench and some Anglia PI) disks work for the most part.
For instance, say I'm try ing to copy a disk as per your instructions, the Amiga asks for the source disk, reads up to track 79 surface 0. And then spins endlessly. The same occurs with most of my disks after a few seconds of working.
A few sessions ago. My st ork was cut short by a power cut. Which turned out to be a breakdown at the local power station. I checked over my fusebox.
And sure enough a tsvo amp wire was blown (I wish I had circuit breakers). Could voltage spikes like that cause problems with my computer? A friend at Scottish Power says that if this is so I have no recourse to the company . What precautions do you suggest at home computer level?
The disk copying phenomenon is nearly always a misaligned head in Ihe disk drive. This is very common with older Amigas. Where the head that scans across the disk cannot read a certain track, or always writes garbage on to a certain area. Either try changing the drive, or ask a repair centre to check the whole computer over properly. Quite a few places advertise in Amiga Format or our sister maga inc Amina Shopper.
Well, it really depends on your power company, which in turn depends on where you live, and also on how much you want to spend. A £20 surge protector, built into a four way mains adaptor, is a reasonable start.
That, together with the fuses in the fusebox. The plugs, and the power supplies which are already there, give a reasonable level of protection to your computer, printer, monitor and w hatever else.
Continued overleaf AMIGA ADVICE It's wise lo lum off and unplug everything, and check ihe fuses in your plugs. Those are Ihc ones lhal are usually ihe wrong values, in Ihe UK al least. The higher a fuse in amps Ihe more power il will lei through (and hence the more damage il can do) before il breaks and cuts ihc power. Most equipment needs a fuse in ihe plug. If il doesn't, ihe chances are it’s got an internal fuse.
MUSSING HARD DISK I ROM: ANDRKW GAUTON. WARRINGTON Everything was fine with my A1200 with (Commodore approved) 85Mb hard drive, until I dragged a file from the Work partition on to a floppy disk. When I double clicked on the Work iron again, a message told me that Work was not a DOS disk!
Now I can't get at any files on my Work partition at all. And the Work icon has changed to "Work:????". Can you tell me what has gone wrong? How do I correct it? My Amiga came with tiVP's Kaaastprep 2.0. but I don't mind using Shell Cl.I if I have to.
As the Amiga writes dala on lo a hard disk, il calculates checksums for Ihc dala on ihc disk. If ihe checksum doesn't match, then AmigaDOS marks ihc disk as invalid and will nol lei you write dala on lo il until il has been validated.
Up lo Workbench 3. Ihc simple answer was lo Diskdoctor Ihe drive. However. Workbench 3 does nol have Ihc Diskdoclor tool, and so you will need lo gel hold of some suitable disk toolbox software such as Quarterback Tunis or QBT Deluxe from Cenlral Coasl Software (0101 512 3286650). We will be reviewing these programs shortly.
166 By Ihe way. Badly programmed software can cause a drive lo become invalid (nol saving a file properly).
Also. Diskdoctor (should you obtain il from a friend with an older Amiga) has one side effect - files lhal have been deleted appear again.
AUGUST 1993 CHEAP PC MONITOR I ROM: J HOLLAND. WADHURST I am considering upgrading my A500+ to an A1200.
Can a PC monitor be used with an AI200?
Upgrade means lo alter a system lo a new standard ¦ il is impossible lo upgrade lo an A1200 you have lo go oul and buy one. No. You cannot use a PC VGA monitor wilhoul an interface - AmiVGA do one for about £40. You can contact them on 070.3 511164.
If nol. Can I use a Philips 8833 monitor as used with the A500+? I have heard that there are problems when using certain types of monitor in that they do nol support all screen modes, and hence are unusable for some types of software, principally games.
You can see any screen mode on any kind of screen.
However. Ihe quality of ihe display may not be whal you arc used lo. You can view a super hi-res screen on an ordinary television set - il is doubtful lhal you could read the writing on il. Though.
The point is lhal you don'I need a special monitor for any of the screen modes - but some screen modes look bcllcr with different kinds of monitors. The AI200's situation is nol al all like the Atari ST. where lo use high resolution software, you have lo buy a high resolution monitor or Ihe software w ill nol run.
The Philips 8833 will be fine for games, bul not very good for very high resolution displays. For lhal. A VGA or multisync monitor (like Ihe Commodore I960) is highly recommended. You arc correct in saying lhal these hi res screens have difficulty with very fasi moving graphics - bul your Philips won't.
I have heard of a software fix that helps. Can you confirm this?
There arc many different monitor types on Workbench
3. About ihc best for you would be hi-res Interlaced Flicker
Free. This gives you a good resolution, with no flicker on a
VGA monitor. In other words, a flickerless display without a
flicker fixer.
CD-ROM PLEASE FROM: TIM SAXON. NORTHUMBERLAND I own a 1.3 A5IMI w ith I Mb of R AM. Do I need any further modifications or upgrades to fit an A570.
Please tell me in English, and also, what is the difference between fast and chip R AM?
Whal il boils dow n lo is an A570 w ill only work properly w iih an A500 with I Mb of chip RAM. How this is done was covered in AT issues 32-34. If you want somebody lo do il for you. (hen Evesham Micros will do the job (0386 765500). I also understand lhal Amiga Shopper printed Ihc details in Iheir Iasi issue (27).
As for Ihe difference between fast and chip RAM - fast RAM is only accessible by Ihe processor. Chip RAM is available lo all custom chips lhal need memory - Paula needs access lo memory lo play sound samples. Agnus needs access lo memory so il can transfer dala from one place lo another (blitting), and Denise needs access lo memory which stores graphic screens and sprites.
Also, disk drives have lo have some chip memory (chip RAM) lo temporarily store dala as il comes off or goes on lo a floppy disk. CD-ROM drives and some hard disks also need lo use chip RAM for iheir buffers
- thal's why you really do need al least I Mb lo have a CD-ROM
drive (like ihe A570) connected.
FASTER UPDATES FROM: HAYDN SMITH. PENARTH I am thinking about buy ing an A4(MM) 030. I have a three-year-old A500 with a I084S monitor which I mainly use for art and graphics, using programs like Dl'ainl 4. MovieSeHer, M) Design and InlroCAD. What I want is a fast. 32-bit machine, that will run most of my old A500 games while letting me do more in the professional graphics side.
Anyway. I've got about £1.500 to spend, and am thinking around the A4000 030. Or a PC clone (486, 33 66MH swilchahle) or possibly an Apple Macintosh. I used to use AutoCAD in a training centre, so I nearly (reluctantly ) bought a PC until the A4000 030 came out. So to my questions:
1) Which monitor will display all screen modes without any
problems?
Any multisync monitor capable of switching scan rales between l5KHz. And 31K Hz. The simplest one lo buy is Commodore's own I960, or a secondhand 1950 (they don't make them anymore). See the answer lo the letter from J Holland for more ideas.
2) What is the best CAD package for the A4000?
I've heard that XCAD3000 is about the best, and better lhan AutoCAD, but is it compatible with the AGA chipset?
Yes il is. Il doesn't actually work in 256 colours yel.
Bul il works fine with the AGA chip set. I understand lhal XCAD is being upgraded lo lei you edit in 256 colours, bul lhal will lake lime.
3) How do I compare the speed of different machines? Pcs are
always rated in Mhz. Bul a 25MHz A4000 040 is four limes
faster than a 25 Mhz A4000 030! Please tell me how to rate a
machine in real terms, as Amigas seem to use MIPS to
differentiate machines.
First, you must understand that the CPUs used in Pcs and Amigas (or Macs) are different, made by two different manufacturers (Intel and Motorola). Therefore, any comparisons arc misleading to a certain extent.
But here's a few rules of thumb. A 68030. Running at 25MHz. Will do computations at about the same speed as a 33MHz 386 or 486 SX. A 68040 running at 25MHz runs about four times faster than an 030 - about 20 per cent faster than a 486DX at 33MHz.
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!
The reasons for these odd comparisons arc twofold.
For a start, the 68030 and 68040 are totally different in terms of the way they are built and designed, while at the same time being extremely compatible in terms of software. For instance. Ihe 040 has a built-in FPU - the 030 requires an extra chip for this (68881 or 68882).
Second, the AGA Amigas have full 32-bit access to graphics stored in memory. The vast majority of Pcs have 16-bit (or even 8-bit) graphics cards, which means that although they can compute maths quicker, it takes longer for them to output that information to you. The chief reason why XCAD is thought better than AutoCAD is that it updates Ihe screen much, much quicker.
Finally, remember that an A4000 030 has no Floating Point Unit (FPU). If you buy software that uses an FPU. You will not be able to run it. But. The good news is that you can have an FPU fitted and you can upgrade the processor very easily on the A4000.
Either to a 68040 040 or (when available) an 68060.
Upgrading a 486 PC to future standards is much, much more difficult.
SHOULD I STAY___ FROM: CARL THOMAS. BARNSLEY I have got a I Mb A500 w hich I have had for just over a year. Now, I was going to buy an ( VP A530 42Mb hard drive accelerator combination with 4Mb of 32-bit RAM. Then Commodore brought out the A1200!
Do I spend £650 on an A530. Or do I buy an A1200 and use the extra money to expand it? The point is I'm not sure if the A500 has a future or not.
It depends what you want to use your Amiga for. If you want a machine which is going to have loads of games on it for years to come, get the A1200. If you want a serious, faster machine for doing lots of computations and raylracing images, then gel an A530 with a 40MHz FPU.
The serious arty side of the Amiga market will support the older Amigas much longer than the traditionally short shelf life games companies will .
But you shouldn't expect things to change overnight - remember how many years did it take the Amiga lo supplant the C64. For example?
AA chipset: The new Lisa (video) and Alice (graphics) chips in the A1200 and A4000 allow many more colours on-screen than previous Amigas. Also called the AGA chipset (Advanced Graphics Architecture), it is impossible to tit the AA chips to older Amigas.
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.
¦litter: 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.
¦rMpaboarB: 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, such as sound cards, video cards (VGA SVGA) and PC hard drives.
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 Cui 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 the 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 Fort RAM: Memory that's only accessible by the processor. Programs stored here run faster than those in chip RAM, because there is no contention between the custom chips and the processor.
From* grabber: Device for capturing live video data and converting it into computer picture data. II doesn’t require a still video signal. It usually gives much better results than a video digitiser, which does the same job.
Except that the video must be paused.
Frooaor 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 Arts and adopted by Commodore. A single standard - practically all art programs can load and save pictures in this form Klckrtart: 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.
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.
167 Shell: 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.
AUGUST 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 of the screen. On the Amiga, sprites are limited in size and colours. Typically used for mouse pointers, alien missiles. And so on.
Startup-sequence: 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 Starlup-sequence and live in the S directory.
Workbench: The set ol programs which sets up a graphical 'point-and-click' interlace on the Amiga.
Much more friendly than the CLI or Shell, but not as flexible. Always has to be loaded from disk, which is slow but does enable much customisation. Workbench 3 requires a Kickstart 3 ROM. Workbench 2 requires a 2 ROM. 1.3 needs a 1 3 ROM and so on.
Zorre: This the generic name for the Amiga's expansion connector. The A500, A500 Plus and A1000 had the original Zorro I; the A1500s and the 2000s 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 new A1200 have a PCMCIA connector instead Information at your fingertips!

any. Do you o*n’ QI want to upgrade from an A500 with a Xappo
external hard disk to an A1200. Is there an interface or cable
for the A1200 to let me plug the hard disk into it?
Answerfile Simple questions, complex answers. Complex questions, simple answers. Here's the latest bundle of snippets from Pat McDonald.
A No. The reason that A500 external hard disks don 't work with the A1200 is that the expansion port on the left hand side of an A1200 is the PCMCIA type, which misses many signals found on the A500 interface. You cannot bridge signals which arc not there without dismantling the machine and soldering directly on to ihe board of the A1200. In short, there isn't anyway to plug a cable or interface into.
What is a CAM ; header?
Q A A CAMG header is a small part of an animation file, or anini. The CAMG is responsible, among other things, for setting the palette colour range of an animation. Strictly speaking, with an animation, you are only supposed to have one set of colours for the whole animation.
170 Some programs such as Graphics Workshop (on the Ah' 30 Coverdisk) let you change colours in the middle of an animation. The way they do this is to alter the CAMG header within the animation file. Other programs do not like you swapping palettes within animations, and if you try to load such a file into them, they report 'CAMG Errors'. So. If you want to change palette values within an animation, you have to have a full set of tools to do it with. I think the Anim Opcode 5 format invented by Sparta could do with a serious update, especially with the arrival of the AGA chipset.
AUGUST 1993 Just what it is a computer virus?
A A small computer program. It’s primary reasons for existence arc to survive and lo make copies of itself, that is replicate. The sad fact is that most viruses are not choosy about which disks they copy themselves lo, and so are responsible for many losses of programs and valuable data. Some deliberately destroy or hide data.
If you arc using an Amiga without a good virus killer program, you have an increased risk of a virus getting into your computer and spreading around any disks you use in it. If you are running lots of pirated software, your risk level goes through the roof - viruses travel with pirate copies.
The simplest way lo avoid virus infection is to switch off your computer for at least 30 seconds before you load, a separate program. Also, wrile-pro- tect all your floppy disks that never need information written on them. The majority of game disks fall into this category.
Ol would like to be able to load TIFF and GIF graphic files on to my Amiga. Are there any good Public Domain programs that will convert such files to the Amiga's IFF standard?
AhamLab. And the commercial HamLab Plus.
Are very good for this sort of thing, especially if you just want to look at the pictures - if you want lo use them within, say. A desktop publishing set-up. Then it is wise to go upmarket to the likes of An Department Professional to do this sort of thing.
Qcan I upgrade an A600 to an A1200, or do I have to sell my A600 and buy an A1200?
A Upgrade means to physically alter a machine to a new specification. You cannot upgrade to an A1200. You have to go out and buy one.
Qhow do I delete a drawer and contents from the Shell or CLI?
If you use Workbench a lot, then you can have a virus killer (like Virus Checker from John Velthuis) multitasking with your programs, keeping an eye out for the little blighters. Virus Checker is available from practically all good Public Domain libraries.
A Use the delete command to do this. It is best if you give the full path to the drawer, and just put 'all' at the end.
Delete DF0:drawername all If you had a drawer called Paperchain on a disk called Ivan, then this would do the trick:- Delete Ivan:Paperchain all Bear in mind that although this deletes complete directories and their contents, it doesn't delete the icon for the drawer.
A What is Datel's address? I have recently acquired a 4961X Datel modem and would like to obtain the instructions for it.
A Datel Electronics are at: Govan Road. Fenton Industrial Estate. Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 2RS. Tel: 0782 744707.
Q Please can you tell me when there will he an IDE CD-ROM drive for the A1200?
A That's a difficult one. IDE evolved to create simple, reliable, and cheap hard drives. It was never designed for CD-ROM use. If you mean when will there be an A1200 CD-ROM drive, then I would have to say that's up to Commodore, and it could be a good few years away. If Commodore have any sense, though, they will certainly have development machines tucked away here and there, so it can be launched with more titles than the A570 CD-ROM drive.
Ql.ook, PI.EASE tell me how to adjust the voices on Say.
A There are a lot of different ways of using it. Be aware that the quality of the speech processor is a lot better under Workbench 2 or higher. This one pipes out your startup-scquence file in a dull robotic monotone. Type it all on one line into the Shell or CLI.
Typing just one space where indicated: Say -r -s400 -p320 -x SYS:s startup- sequer.ee The '-r' switch tells the machine you want a robotic voice: the '-s' switch sets the speed to slowest (100 seems the fastest, although 40 is the lowest value per- milted); the -p' switch sets the pilch to highest (lowest value possible is 65).
II you want some variance in tile pilch, put in a --n‘ natural switch just after the '-r'. If you want masculine rather than robotic, put -nT. If you want feminine rather than masculine, put '-f. The '-x' switch tells the say command to speak Ihe next ASCII filename, which is where the 'SYS:s startup-sequence' comes from. Put a different path and name for a different ASCII text file. So. If you want a male baritone, this is handy: Indepth Explanation Proportional Fonts txistisf 1st list Imlxts jSyst m2. Cfonts Size t litnw |j Mbits s |CSTri«wirit» J«z» I Mlrtt Irnlm Say -m -n -sl80 -pi10 -x
filename One other point - to get out of the Say command (even if you doubled clicked on the icon) just keep Ctrl held down and hit the C character. Ctrl-C or 'Break' is a common way of aborting Shell commands.
A I have just bought a sound sampler, but I need more memory. I know that the Pro Agnus can help with this problem hut I have an empty money box. Will the Patter Agnus or any other chips help me?
T*4 Silt | fretts litM»| M*ts Tizs I felrtt litmfl _CmkM_| A You gel nowt for nowt. I regret. If you want some extra bytes for storage, then you need to spend money at some stage. The reason that people sell unpopulated' RAM boards is that other people know where to get the RAM chips lo populate them. I'd rather pay for the whole lot in one go if possible.
Ql have CrossDOS and Virus Checker installed on my Amiga. Whenever I put a PC formatted disk into a drive. Virus Checker puts up a warning box that it could not read Ihe hoot- hloch. Is there a way around this problem?
A Yes. If you are invoking Virus Checker from a startup script, just pul -i on the end like so;- Virus_Checker -i The '-i' means that if the program cannot check a drive for viruses (can't read the bootblock of a PC disk) then it won't put up that annoying little window .
Ol am sick and tired of not being able to play Lemmings 2. And many other I Mb games, on my CDTV. Can I just plug an ASOtl memory expansion into the back of it or what?
A No you cannot. But you can have a switch fitted to CDTV which turns off the CD drive, conserving memory for other programs. Judging from the letters I've had. It would seem to be a most effective way of getting lots of I Mb software lo work with a CDTV. Such a switch will cost you 112.99. and is available from CDTV Free (0388 813661).
Qls the overseas price for the AMOS manual the same as the CK price?
A If you live in Europe, add £2 to the price. For anywhere else in the world, add £3. These costs are just to cover the extra postage.
Q Where can I get Greek, Hebrew. Russian (Cyrillic). Mathematical and Japanese fonts for use in an Amiga word processor?
A All of ihe above and many more are available from Errol Madoo. Of EMC Ltd (0255 431389), A word of caution though - all the fonts are Compugraphic type I fonts, which means you have to have Workbench 2 upwards or a compatible DTP program in order to use them. 'I) Pwlern (limn The Fountain program from Workbench 2, creating a new sized bitmap font from an outline font.
Be aware that in order to get this program to work, you must copy some files from the Fonts disk on to your system disk. This usually means floppy users making some space on a copy of Workbench, while hard disk users have a much easier time.
Very popular DTP program. However, the Professional Page DTP program comes with a utility to convert between Adobe and Compugraphic font formats.
7 The reason for the differences between the way that Workbench 2 and 3 handle Compugraphic fonts is that Workbench 3 can read PC disks very easily. The Workbench 3 program Intellifont can read and convert IBM PC Compugraphic fonts Into their Amiga equivalents.
With Workbench 2, even if you have CrossDOS to read PC disks, it’s still much more trouble to obtain fonts from PC disks.
171 AUGUST 1993 8 In order to use outline fonts on Workbench 2 or 3. Certain files have to be copied from the fonts disk to your System disk (the Workbench floppy for floppy users, your Workbench partition for hard drive users). The things to copy are; Diskfont.llbrary (must go In the libs drawer); the Bullet drawer (goes in the fonts drawer); and at least one CG font from the fonts drawer. You must make sure there Is space for all that on your Workbench floppy or hard drive before you begin.
9 One problem with outline fonts is that it takes the computer time and memory to rescale a font to a particular size. On large DTP documents, this can stop a page from printing out. Because there isn't enough memory to both scale and print out. One way around this is to use Fountain or Intellifonts to save a bitmap font from a Compugraphic at a particular size. Then reboot, and change the layout of the document so it uses the smaller (in memory terms) bitmap font rather than the Compugraphic.
It is unwise to put all possible fonts in one place. In the short term it may not seem much of a problem, but the bigger a font drawer is. The longer it takes the Amiga to work out just what is available. It's a much better idea to have a few fonts that you use a lot available, and to keep the others on floppy disks. If the floppies are all called Fonts, then you can still load the fonts from inside a program. If possible, you should print out your fonts, to save time when you’re choosing between them.

Durham DL3 0SF P3 INS CONT ROLLER MODULE SWITCHSOFT If nut satisfied, return anv pmducl within 10 davs for a full refund SURVEY RESULTS Every year, we at Amiga Format conduct a reader survey to find out more about you lot. We do it so that we can make the magazine more relevant to what you want, but the results are always pretty interesting. Join Marcus Dyson and discover what kind of company you keep... to EXCITEMENT ABOUNDS IN the Amiga Formal offices w hen the questionnaire results begin to flood in. We all gather around Steve (the boy)
Bradley's desk and rip often envelope after envelope, sharing and comparing responses. The reason for all this excitement is two fold. Firstly it's a bit of a reward for us.
After months and months of hard work trying lo bring you the best Amiga mag in the world, it's great to hear you say you like it. Secondly it lets us know a bit more about you. What you use your machine for. And what hardware and peripherals you have.
174 Studying the results helps us lo decide what features, round-ups and reviews to do in the coming year. So come on a journey of discovery and analysis through this year's results, find out a bit more about other Amiga owners, and maybe even get a clue as to what you can expect lo see in coining issues of your favourite Amiga maga inc.
Cl c l T H Sex. Not surprisingly, you are a mainly male bunch. But the female contingent of our readership continues to increase. Since last year it has jumped 50 per cent lo a total of 6 per cent of the total. We welcome you. And all new readers.
Overall the readership seems to be becoming less games orientated, and more interested in the serious and creative power of the Amiga.
A couple of years ago 99 per cent of you said that you were gamesplayers. Now 6 per cent of you claim never to pick up a joystick.
We've always maintained the Amiga's more than a games machine, but most people still like a good blast on the old leisure software.
The A500 Plus 600 still form the vast majority of Antigas in use, but the A12(H) has made a very healthy debut with 19 per cent of readers now in possession of one. A further IX per cent of you say that you are interested in getting an AGA machine in the near or medium luture. A further 36 per cent of you making the leap eventually.

We thought it was a good idea for Stovo 'the boy' Bradley to meet a reader in the flesh. So we sent him down to WH Smith, with a camera in one hand and a questionnaire in the other, and he asked the following to Amiga Formal reader Duncan Watts What is your main occupation?
"I'm a student studying at Bath University, but I'm originally from Tregaron in Wales."
What Amiga do you own?
"I have an A500 with a hard drive which I've had for about a year now."
Da you intend to upgrade to an AGA machine?
"Yes, hopefully this year to an A1200."
What's your favourite style of game?
"Well, my favourite game is Saatlble Soccer, though the computer teams are too easy to beat."
What would you like to see more of in Amiga Format?
"I'd like to see more hardware and peripheral reviews, and in game reviews it would be nice to see more comparisons between games."
Amina Formal readers have long had a reputation as thinking gamesplayers. And this is reflected in the kind of games you favour - sims. Role-play ing games and strategy games being the most popular genres, with platlorm- crs coming a firm third.
In terms of expansion you are a well equipped bunch, significant amounts of you owning printers, monitors, extra drives and RAM expansions. The number of you owning replacement mice would probably be significantly less if the one that w as bundled with the A500 600 had been any good.
All ihis hardware hasn't slopped your lusi for pow er though, and many of you are inlending lo upgrade further in the coming y ear. Top of ihe w ish lisls are floppy drives, printers and monitors, presumably for ihe minority of you who don’t already ow n those pieces of kit.
Also high on Ihe desirables arc IDE drives (lurn lo page 56 now and you could win one) for all you new A1200 Owners, accelerators (lum lo page 38 now for a comprehensive round-up of Amiga speed machines), modems, video digitisers, sound samplers and genlocks.
Il certainly sounds like a w hole lol of you are about lo gel dow n lo some serious creativity work w ith sour machines.
The Amina Formal Collection lias certainly changed Ihe established patterns of software ownership. While last lime we did a survey a mere 5.3 per cent of you ow ned a word processor. Since we gave awav Scribble.' 76 per cent of you now have one. Database (36 to 63 per cent). Programming language (31 to 57 per cent), video titling (7 lo 31 per cent) and DTP (21 to 44 per cent) software all showed large increases. Interestingly, full packages that we had already given away before the last survey (music and paint) showed comparatively less increase, while programs that were never given on an
Amina Format Coverdisk (cottons. 3D and educational) showed virtually no increase.
Although this is testimony to the popularity and success of the Amina Formal Collection, it rather obscures the pattern of software ownership for us to base features and round-ups on. Since owning a piece of software no longer necessarily means that you use il or are interested in that area.
More useful to us is what software you intend to purchase next year, and that list reads like this... 3D graphics (which explains what all ihe accelerators arc for). DTP. Music and word publishers all feature highly on many people's Christmas lists. The stunning news is that a huge 18 per cent of you are after a copy of Deluxe Paint IV. Which must make Electronic Arts a very happy company indeed.
And just lo keep things as interesting as ever we'll be reviewing Brilliance soon, a new AGA paint package which could be a major competitor to Dpainl.
As lor Ihe PD pool, around three quarters of you have dipped your toe in at least once, and the majority have done so more times. It's not surprising really when one considers the wealth of software you can get. And how cheap it is too. We’ll keep pointing you in the direction of (he best stuff in our PD Update and Demo one sections.
And now to Ihe bit we really have lo sit up and take notice of: what you think of the magazine and which are your favourite bits. This one is tricky to judge, and the numbers in the panel below are open to interpretation. What we ditl is add up all of you who said each subject was your main area for buying the mag.
Add on all of you w ho wanted to see more, and take away all who said they wanted to see less.
It's a strange way to do things, but it gives a pretty good idea what arc the most popular areas. New s scores top. But then the purpose of any magazine is to inform you of new products and services, so there arc no surprises there. Next is the serious stuff on the Coverdisk. We're getting a bit squeezed by the size of most game demos these days, but we’ll keep trying lo get the balance right. And we’ve introduced a whole disk full of utilities for subscribers, so you can save money and get two disks as well!
175 AUGUST 1993 Here at Amina Formal we think the Amiga is the best home computer, great for games, but even better for creative use. You lot obviously think the same. Rest assured we'll do our best to keep giving you what you want.

PAYING THE PRICE I am writing to you with some concern regarding Cl) software and floppy disk software. At present the current argument for games being priced al £25 goes like this. The software houses have to cover programmers' wages, musicians' wages, artists' wages, packaging, marketing and other overheads. Add to this the cost of damage done by the •«.***** called pirates. I am not knocking current prices, overall I think it is a fair sum in comparison to wasting loads of dosh buying a film and only watching il a few limes.
Can anyone tell me how the software houses can hope to reduce the price of CD software when the games are bigger and a longer time is spent coding?
This leads to three possibilities... II Pirates are totally and blatantly killing off the games scene for anyone who can't afford a CD drive.
2) CD games will make no money and arc really a bunch of software
houses doing a lot of work for charidcccc... but they don't
like to talk about it.
3) Present disk-based games must be overpriced, so the software
houses are taking the piss, but they don't like to talk about
it.
Daryl Booth, Ramsgate There's no doubt that piracy, if il remains so prevalent, will lead to the death of the games industry. Hut the softies have always maintained that once names are available on CD. And thus become effectively tin- pirate-able, that prices would drop. A.v you say.
Though, bigger games will require more work to. And thus cost more to produce. But CD games will be much easier to convert to all the formats Ithe new Commodore CD unit. Mega CD. Nintendo CD. FM towns. CD-i 2. 3DO and a hundred othersI so producers should be able to offset the astronomical Got a picture you're proud of? Send it in, see it in print and win an Amiga Format binder!

» production costs against a potentially gargantuan audience for the product.
We recently took a look at Psygnosis' new Microcosm game, it's out on the FM Towns in Japan, and will appear on twhat they are referring to as I CDTV 2 late this year. While it is obvious that lots of work has gone into the production, they are bandying figures of well over 20 man years, they are also talking of issuing it at around the (70 price point (70 for any game on any platform is a joke. If the softies don't come through with the goods, and deliver CD software at the same, or a lower, price as existing floppy disk games, they will show themselves as the cynical profiteers some people
already say they are.
179 SISTER REACT Alter my brother has bought your magazine, played the Coverdisks a few times and filed them away in the ultra neat disk file (which I can never find anything in) he resigns the issues to a life of solitary confinement under his bed. Only reluming to check the well thumbed Zool review in issue number whatever-it-was.
AUGUST 1993 So tell my darling (pass me a bucket, please) brother that it's my Amiga too. Even if I don't have a clue what RAM or CLI is. It doesn't really matter if I can't work Workbench. It's the games I like - New Zealand Stoty is an old favourite.
So. Dear brother, please pul the Afs back where they can be enjoyed by all. Like in the bookcase, on top of the computer, or wherever normal people put them. Not under your bed.
Elaine Gibb, Ayr Please don’t hide Amiga Format under the bed. People might get the wrong idea about w hat kind of mag it is.
Continued overleaf RADIO AGA Being an AGA (A Greal Admirer) of AF. I yesterday bought the June issue and read AGA (A Good Article) on the new A40110 030. And then the magical competition to win one!
What AGA (A Greal Asset) that would be to own. I set about answering the competition and found AGA (A Gruelling Array) of questions before me. Most answers could be found from the previous article, but question seven needed AGA (A Good Answer) to stand any chance. Being an A12(H) owner I first set about AGA (And Glanced Aimlessly) through the two pointless manuals supplied w ith my machine. No joy there, so I set about searching through my back issues of Amiga Formal. Finally, after AGA (A Gallant Attempt) I found it in AF43. Page 43. It read AGA = Advanced Graphics Array. I filled out my
postcard and sent it to you.
AGA (A Greal Achievement). Today I went out and purchased the Amiga Formal Special issue 4 only to find out in the first pages that our friend AGA according to you lot now means Advanced Graphics Adaptor. I duly fill out another postcard and return home to find that my friend has found AGA in his AF Special issue 3 and it means Advanced Graphics Architecture. I give up! Maybe the correct answer is AGA (Any Guess Acceptable)!
Martin Brand, Coventry Oh dear! Thai competition. Not only are there a greal array of questions, bat some of them were a lad difficult lo answer. We asked about llie relative speed of ilie A40IX) 0J0 lo llie AI200, but didn't print a Syslnfo screen. We asked who was managing director of Commodore and then he went and resigned. And ur asked about the illusive meaning of the AGA TLA three letter acronym I. 180 Don't worry though. We have been very understanding in our marking of llie competition. The winner will have been picked by llie lime you read this, and we'll be announcing who it is
in the nest issue.
AUGUST 1993 PD PIRACY I would like to talk about the Public Domain companies selling demos. Do you lliink that the PD companies have Ihe right lo make money from other people's work by selling demos, often against the producers' will? I am asking this because I know demos contain a screen which states that PD companies must ask for permission from the authors before selling it to the public. An increasing number of demos slate they must not be sold under any circumstances. PD companies continue to sell these demos without permission.
Of course the PD libraries may argue that they are making the producers of the demos famous by spreading their work for them. But demos are spread most efficiently throughout the demo scene among real enthusiasts - the people who make up the demo scene and keep it going, i'm not saying all PD libraries are offices full of losers. There are several like 17 Bit. For instance, who ask for permission before selling demos if that is what the authors wish. Good PD companies make a link between Ihe demo scene and the public to provide the public with cheap software, even if it's six months old
before the PD companies gel hold of it.
Detinator of Destiny Of course tee think it" s wrong for PD companies to distribute people’s work against their wishes. But it’s a bit rich for the people who are often most involved with the theft of commercial software to start getting upset if they are treated in the same way. To stand against one form of piracy without condemning all forms of software theft, is hypocrisy of the highest order.
If llie so called demo scene wants to be exclusive and not communicate with the rest of llie Amiga community. So he it. That is your choice. Here at AF we:
a) Like demos, and wish that the people who create them would
give most people a chance to see them.
) Don't agree with PD shops stealing demo writers' work, and urge shops lo take the same kind of approach as 17 Hit obviously do. Nor do we agree with liaekers stealing games programmers' work, cl Think everyone should love one another, hold hands with your brother and gel down, right now!
MISS TAKEN IDENTITY Quality Time, by Eric Schwartz, stars Clarisse the cat.
Not Amy the Squirrel as stated in Amiga Formal 47.
The same is true of ,4 Day at the Beach. Does she look like a squirrel lo you? Have you ever heard a squirrel say 'purrfcct"? Amy the Squirrel star of Amy V.v the Walker and At the Movies has never been to Ihe beach.
I demand an immediate apology to all involved in this terrible mix up.
James Whiteman, Hoddesdon You are quite right, it is Clarisse llie Cat. But then zoology never was Nutts' strongest subject. We offer sincere apologies to both Amy and Clarisse for the mi x up. But how come you know so much about Clarisse's personal life'.1 NOS DOT!
I currently own an Amiga 6(X). I noticed while working on my Grandma's A600HD that NDOS: disk games, such as Kick Off 2, do not run off the hard drive. Why not? Would getting a SCSI drive solve this problem?
What hard drive would you recommend? I want a 60Mb one. But owning an A6IHI seems lo be a disadvantage when buying peripherals.
S Whyte, Newmachar There are two reasons why your games won't run from the hard drive. One is because the games don’t use llie Amiga's Disk Operating System, or DOS. This is because some programmers believe they can make games faster and better by programming directly lo the computer hardware, these are Not-DOS disks, or NDOS. These disks won't run from a hard drive.
The other reason is that if a program can be copied on to a hard disk, it can also be copied on to another Iloppy and given, or sold, lo your friends. This, of course, is piracy and the programmers tend to copy protect game disks to prevent this. A SCSI drive will be no more use for running these games than an IDF one.
Some games, an increasing number in fact, will install lo your hard drive, so tee still recommend an HD as a good thing to have.
Rather than being at a disadvantage from owning an AbOO. You have a huge array of hard drives available to you. Read our IDF round up in issue 44 I if you don't have a copy turn to back issues on page 150 ninei and you' II see just what we mean.
QUIET PLEASE Could you please ask your readers not to fly their demos of B-17 Flying Fortress early in the morning.
There are people trying to sleep out here!
I can't get a decent night's kip with all those bombers flying over my house.
Frank Mosch, Antrwerpen OK Everybody. Your grounded till OS.00 hours.
DUELLING BANJOS Could you please answer the following three life threateningly important questions.
11 Why does Mcv Dink of Vivid Image look so much like Tony Blackburn? After comparing his picture w ith a video of Noel’s House Party I noticed a startling similarity. Does Mcv lead a bizarre double life, or is Tony Blackburn an extraordinarily talented programmer?
2) Does anyone know the difference between the two guitars in the
Carlsberg advert? Am I just tone deaf or do they both sound
the same? For God's sake someone tell me which is which!
31 Why is Amiga Format so mind bogglingly good? Is there something in the water down there in Bath or are your team super human intellectuals, extremely witty and marvellously talented?
Daniel Griffin, Whitwick 11 Mcv Dink and Tony Blackburn are definitely not one anti the same person. Mcv's Jokes are a bn funnier.
21 The only people who can tell the difference between the two guitars are the ones who can tell Carlsberg from weak homogenised fizzy crap.
JI Frm .. is it2 Must be something in the water... Continued overleaf NOT THAT SONG AGAIN I have a CDTV with a keyboard, drive and tracker ball. After spending hundreds on the set-up. I discover that a Imb-rated game won't run on the the I Mb CDTV. The game in question being Sensible Soccer, the best footic game there is on any machine, and I was a big Kick Off 2 fan you heller turn lo Page 66 ond read our review of Goal then liadn'i you.' - Ed I. My point is how do the Big C expect a machine to take off when they point out how good it is for games, bul forget lo mention lhal il has no
joystick ports. Getting them requires spending an extra £50.
I'm not surprised Ihe CDTV was a flop when you consider all of its flaws. Let's | hope that Commodore gel it right with CDTV2. It is obvious that the CD medium is the way ahead but. As w ith most things, there is a w rong way and a right way.
Piracy. A big problem which no-one seems to have the answer lo. It's obvious that clamping down on the pirates docs not work, the risk seems lo make them do it even more. Protecting software seems pointless because there's alway s someone w ho can. And will, break ihe protection, w hether it be for financial gain, or just for the challenge. Cartridge-based software isn't immune lo piracy either, just look al the SNES and Mega Drive, it’s now common knowledge that you can buy a floppy drive that can pul your games on disk. Even though the unit costs around I'.VK). it's | still only the cost of
six games.
The only real answer to me is the way Jeff Minter decided to sell Uamulron. It may sound strange, bul lieenccware sharewarc seems the only possibility. I would never have believed il. Bul I'm sure Jeff Minter w ill agree, and I found out when I ran a PD library , that relying on people's honesty does work. Even if it seems like a crazy thing to do. It works especially well if manuals or updated versions arc promised in return for Ihe registration fee.
Lastly , can I thank Renegade for the excellent serv ice they offered me when my Sensible Soccer disk 2 was mauled by a virus.
Bruce Whitehouse, Stockton on Tees The CDT is capable of virtually anything any other Amiga is callable of. F Although sometimes it needs the odd add on like the game brick or sonic extra RAM. We like it. And think that by selling over .111.1)00 units in the VK n is a bold success, and a machine ahead of its time, rather than a flop.
CDTV 2. If that is the name Commodore choose for their new CD-based machine, will surelv correct many of the mistakes lhal were made on CDT . Rut don't be too harsh on Commodore - Itow were they lo know the right ami the wrong way of marketing and aiming CDT It was a revolutionary protlucl As li e ¦ have often stated in the past, the public were not prepared land they're still not j ] quite reads now for the concept of a home interactive multiplayer. It's far more likelv that Commodore will target the new Cl) machine al the same audience who are now purchasing the Mega Cl) in increasing
numbers Commodore's machine will have a faster processor, more colours and most likely a faster Cl) drive than the Sega machine, and will lie a better console for il. And the Commodore CD machine will probably be expandable, via floppy drives and keyboard, to a full computer system Your revolutionary idea to combat piracy lias much lo recommend it. Bryan Bell who won the GamesMastcr AMOS i ompelition with Charlie Chimp, and then placed a three level demo on our Coverdisk has now had more than .1.000 responses. Each of these people sent linn £5 in return for two disks, one with the full game
and one with source code That means Bryan stands lo have over £10,0011 left over lo pul towards cake and buns, a holiday for the family or his next game. Jeff Minter made quite a tidy sum from Llumatron. And nol surprisingly so. | il is an incredible game Hut it is unlikely that the software houses would ever undertake that approach - they want big turnover and big profits Next month Issue 50 September 1993 Its party time!
Amiga Format is 50 - yes 50 - issues old and so we're putting on something special that you won't be able to resist. How about this - the bcst-cvcr top 50 products, whether they're games, serious software or hardware - looked at. Turned inside and out. Everything about their backgrounds brought to the fore, where the products arc now and. Even more importantly, where their makers arc. Whal they have been doing, and what they are doing now . Don't miss it!
Prints charming We often get asked by people which printer they should buy. And it’s fair to say that these days it's a difficult decision to make. Panasonic. Epson. Seikosha. Citizen. Oki.
Star, the list isn't quite endless, bul it's very long indeed. And they all make excellent machines. Bul to really gel the most out of your printer you really need software that gets the most out of your printer, and let ’s face il. We're not talking preferences drivers here.
There arc a proliferation of programs designed to make your printed output belter, and next month we lake a look at all of them.! We line 'em up side by side, al the start of a 100 metres sprint and see which one reaches the end first. And after it becomes obvious that none of them are going to move al all. We load 'em into our Amigas and try printing with them. Check out the results of the great printer driver debate in next month's issue.
Waiting for you at your local shop from Thursday July 22!
IT’S NOT ME Musicolor has been receiving excellent reviews, but 1 am slightly perplexed because every review says that the program is based on the Tobin System. This rather infers that someone has taken the Tobin System and based Musicolor on its principles.
This is not the case. The program is the system. I think one of the reasons the program is so well thought of is that it is no flash in the pan. But it is something I have devoted all my life to - 26 years in all! I have written 36 books on the subject and I am still working on other ideas.
I wrote every word of the program and gave the programmers all the diagrams in detail. I wrote all the music and script for Derek Griffiths. The characters were my invention and I wrote the lyric for the song.
My daughter wrote the music for the song because I thought she was more au fait with youngsters tastes, being a professional jazz pianist who lives and works in New York.
So you sec. The words 'based on' hardly apply.
Having said all this I would like to say that Binary Visions did a brilliant job of the programming, and Derek Griffiths spoke the part beautifully.
I'm not just being pernickety about this, but while this misleading concept is pul about, people don't realise that I am alive and kicking and available for lectures and seminars - which is my main career.
Candida Tobin. Sawbridgeworth So there you no, Ms Tobin is available for talks, seminars, lectures, parties anil barmitzvalis. Anil she can be contacted at Ihe Old Mall House. Sawbridgeworth.
CM21 9AX. If you wish to engage her services.
182 A FREE THOUSAND I've got a great answer to all of Commodore's compatibility problems. Why don't they make an Amiga with a CD drive. 8Mb as standard. 32-bit. AGA graphics, and so on. All for under £50? It'd be a huge hit with everyone, and they would sell so many that they wouldn't have to build any more machines.
AUGUST 1993 Also, where has Eric Schwartz gone? Is he working on a 10Mb demo, or can't he be bothered to do any more anims?
Shaun Usher. Colwyn Bay An interesting point Shaun, and one which leads us to wonder why Ferraris cos more than 5,1)00. How come you can't get a first class seat to New York on Concorde for a tenner, and why we have to pay for beer at all. If Commodore made the machine you suggest at the price you suggest, it may solve a few small problems, but it would leave them with one big one to deal with... bankruptcy.
Eric Schwart: is alive and well and living at his house. See I'D Demo Zone for news of his latest work.
CAN YOU CDC FROM HERE?
I am interested in buying one of the new AGA Amigas.
As I cannot afford the new A4000 030. I was thinking of buying an A1200. The thing is I want an Amiga with a hard drive and CD capabilities, will there be a CD drive for the A1200?
Also, if there is any truth behind the rumours of a new CD driven machine: How much do you think it will cost? Do you think it will be released this year?
Do you think it will support hardware such as hard drives? Thanks in advance if you can supply any answers to these questions.
Kevin Dixon, Cleveland It is a very strong possibility lliat CD drives will be available for the A1200. Especially with rumours of a CD machine bearing the internals of the AI200 being under development. The recent appearance of ICD's Viper A1230 and SCSI 2 adaptor also add weight to this possibility.
As for there being any truth behind the rumours of a new CD console, they say that there is no smoke without fire, and there's certainly plenty of smoke in this area. We expect it will cost between 250 and 300. But we also expect prices to fall as Christmas approaches. Yes. We mean Christmas 1993 - we do think it will be launched this year.
We also expect the new CD console to have connectivity for an external floppy drive, and keyboard.
Hard drive may not be supported, since this would require the inclusion of an IDE or SCSI interface, something Commodore may wish to exclude in order to keep the price down.
LET US ENTER I am writing to you from the land where we never qualify for the World Cup. Where computer shops stock things like Classic Invaders and Protector.
Where there are more sheep than people. Yep. You've guessed it. New Zealand.
It takes Amiga Format such a long time to reach us down here, for instance I have just received the February issue. So I want to suggest that you somehow have a competition for overseas readers so that we loo can Spot the Shot. Rave on a Rave. Perform a Miracle, etc. etc. Liam Ryan, Gisborne, New Zealand Since your letter was posted in April. Liam, and addressed to Damien. I can tell that it takes things a good while to get either way between us and you. Wlial we’ll do. Next month, is we'll put together a competition with a massively long entry period, something like six months, and we'll
only let overseas readers enter.
How does that sound?
CDTV CREATIVITY I have recently bought a Commodore Amiga CDTV multimedia pack and I am quite interested in animation. Morphing, designing and other stuff like that.
Please could you tell me what the best art package is that includes these features. Could you also please tell me about any upgrades and accessories I might need for the programs you recommend.
Mike Woods. St Austell Your machine, being an Amiga like any other under the sexy black exterior, is well capable of these things.
In fact, being an Amiga, means that it has more and Spot the shot 49 Do you know which Amiga game this is a portion ol?
Then send us a postcard and you could win a T-shirt.
Just put your name, address and the name of the game on the card and post it to us at the following address: Spot the Shot 49. Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth Street, Bath BA1 2BW. The first correct entry pulled out of the hat every month will win a fabulous Amiga Format T-shirt!
Better software available for better prices than most micro computers have.
If you're going for animation, you might well want a hard drive More memory, particularly chip RAM. Is advisable for any kind of graphics work. Try giving Indi a call on 0543 419999. They have one of the biggest ranges of CDT hardware expansions available The software you need to he looking at is Deluxe Paint IV. Image FX and Morph Plus. For more details of these turn lo page 151 and order yourself a copy of the Amiga Formal Special Complete Software Guide This packed issue has details of virtually all the programs available, broken down into handy categories, zt look at the graphics
section should tell you all you need to know.
THERE’S ONLY ONE... There's always one isn't there? This lime it's me. In his 1990 book The Ghost from The Grand Banks.
Arthur C Clarke states that he uses MandFX by Cygnus Software on his Amiga 2000. And not VistaPro on an Amiga 3000 as you said in AF 48. Admittedly, he could have upgraded since then, and I am going to look a right idiot if he has... Perry Haynes, Irthlingborough We actually spoke to Arthur on the phone, he has upgraded, and he got John llinkley. One of the authors of the fractal landscape generator Vista Pro. To install it on his mat line, an A3IXH). The privileges of being one of the world most respected authors, eh?
ARE THEY, OR NOT?
The review of Graham Gooch's Cricket in Amiga Format 47 showed no sign of not being A1200 compatible. On Page 89 of the same issue a 'Datagcnt' advert quoted the games as not being A12(H) compatible. This is again true of the review of Arabian Nights in Amiga Formal 46. W hich is also quoted in the same advert as not being A1200 compatible. Are they or aren't they?
It makes no difference lo me as I haven't got an A1200. But it could cause confusion all the same.
Just a quick word on the age old 'more less' dispute. More news, more game reviews, more serious reviews, more adverts, more sex (oops, wrong letter), in fact, more of everything.
Sorry about the block capitals but my writing is... at this point the writing drops out of caps and becomes immediately indecipherable - ed).
Stewart Newman. Dagenham Look! We checked when we reviewed them, we just checked again, and then we rang their mums and asked, those games are definitely A!200 compatible.

REALITY Its for charidee... Kyle Harris is a man with a
mission. Actually he's a singer songwriter with a mission.
But that's not important right now. What the enterprising Kyle
has managed to do is get himself sponsored for every feature
or snippet about him that gets into print. The money goes to
Multiple Sclerosis victims, so we re doing our bit.
Kyle has also secured a donation for every time a recording artist covers one of his songs. So If any of you are fabulously rich and famous rock stars (or your dads are... Joe) then get covering Kyle's numbers. In fact if ace psychedelic noise merchant band Jellyfish Kiss' are still AF readers (and we're sure they are), we think they should take note and give Kyle s compositions a touch of Kramer noise. And then there's always Imaginary records, the label that has made a name for itself by releasing tribute albums to great recording artists like The Velvet Underground (who Marcus has just seen
at Wembley) and Bob Dylan. To them we say. Why not do a Kyle album, oh! And when s the Monkees tribute coming out?
Back from Its summer holidays, and sporting a rather fine tan... it's that page where we print all the stuff that doesn't really belong anywhere else in the magazine.
Panasonic have just announced a ness range of photocopiers featuring all new euro Fuzzy Logic technology. To save you the* embarrassment of asking an assistant in Dixons what NFL is all about (as if they'd know! We've prepared a bluffer’s guide to Fuzzy Logic, read on... Fuzzy logic was developed in 1965 by Lofti A Zadeh at the University of California, Berklev. It was first practically applied in the UK for controlling steam engines.
Neuro Fuzzy Logic is a state-of-the-art version of Fuzzv Logic with more bells ami whistles, which even less people understand than the first version. It was invented when someone accidentally mixed the Fuzzy Logic with the basis of neural networks. It's dead good at controlling vacuum cleaners and washing machines.
Despite its name Fuzzy Logic doesn’t look very blurred, in fact it's just a concept, so you can't see it at all!
NEVER MIND THE... One very popular television show that is based on recounting the positions of the nation's most popular records in order, and then playing their videos, has gotten a bit sensitive about the use of certain words recently. When industrial dance band Oil Seed Rape got a mention recently their name was unceremoniously abridged to Oil Seed. As Nuns pointed out They'll soon be doing a run down of the A! Charts, cos they don't want to say bum".
Very rock n' roll, eh?
Top computer company Commodore managed lo gel their name on everyone's lips, and Ihe players' chests, w hen I hoy sponsored Chelsea football club. The only problem was. While everyone knew their name, no one knew who ihe heck they were or whal they did.
Solution .' Drop Ihe Commodore name and gel some advertising tor ihe product.
Now every body knows whal an Amiga is.
Don'l they? If they don't now they will do when Chelsea storm 10 victory in the World Cup and ihe Oly mpics and whatever else n is ihal loolballic types do. (If this obvious lack of foolballing knowledge is bugging you to tears, slop reading this now and turn immediately to page ( 6 lor Ihe first review ol* Dino Dim's (Inal1, which is finally finished).
