So you're lucky enough to have a full working copy of Blitz Basic. But what do you do with it? Write brilliant programs, of course. And on the next 10 pages we show you how in the first of our mega tutorials.

OKEE DOKEE!
.After Blitz 2 is up and running F ft select OKEE DOKEE and vott're E ready to type in votir first Blitz 2 program: Print "THUMBS UP DUDE!"
MouseWait To run the program, select the Compile Run option from the COMPILER menu. A Blitz 2 Cl.l window appears with your message printed across the lop. Unless ol course you have made a typo in your first program, not a Continued overleaf UP AMD RUMMIMG The Blii 2 C' v -irlisk. This month features the complete Blitz 2 language. The three componenis that make up the language are: Blitz 2: the compiler Ted: the editor Deflibs: the command libraries To start programming in Blitz 2 just click on the Blitz 2 icon front Workbench. As Blitz 2 is a combination editor-compilcr the other two
files Ted and Dellihs must always he present in tin* same drawer.
I (arddisk users ran install Blit 2 on their system simply by creating a new drawer on their hard disk and dragging the three files from the When you load your Coverdisk. These icons (’-"Verdisk into it. I he line will appear on your screen.
The excellent new programming language - Blitz 2 - is ready and waiting on thi* month’* Amiga Format Coverdisk, so get programming!
BEFORE YOU START Welcome to yet another fabulous Coverdisk. This time you lucky people have got your hands on one of the most powerful and simple to use programming languages available, which will allow you to create everything from arcade quality games to top notch utilities.
Amazingly, the entire programming system has been packed on to one disk - one which you will have to expand before you can get cracking.
To do this simply follow these steps: 1 Have a blank disk ready.
2 Restart your machine and insert Coverdisk 52A (make sure that it is write-protected).
3 When Workbench has loaded, double-click on the disk icon and wait for the window to open.
» Locate the Blitz icon (it’s the very big one) and double click on it.
5 A window will open and ask you to hang on for a moment. Do this
- don’t touch anything.
6 Eventually a message will appear asking you to insert a disk into dfO: and press return. At this point remove your Coverdisk.
7 Insert your blank disk and press return. The data will now be written on to the disk.
8 When the process is finished you will be asked to insert your Coverdisk again. Do this.
9 Now you can remove your Coverdisk and insert your brand new Blitz Basic disk. Have fun!
THE BLITZ 2 DEBUGGER Blitz 2 comes with a very powerful debugger that will tell you if anything goes wrong when your program is running. The RuntimeDebugger must be activated (via the compiler options requester) if you are to make use of it. If your program has an error and the runtime debugger is not activated, the chances are you will crash the system. Once you have your program error free, disabling the debugger will allow you to run your programs at near machine code speeds.
To stop the program that continuosuly prints “YOZA" we could invoke the debugger by hitting CtrlALtC. The STOP command can also be added anywhere in your code to invoke the Blitz 2 debugger. Some of the keyboard controls that can then be used with the Blitz 2 debugger: H - Hide Show debugger S - single step through the program I - ignore current command (skip to next one) T - trace program execution 0 - display 68000 registers R - resume full speed program execution Q - quit back to Ted (also use ESC) B - backup through previously executed commands F - forward step through previous commands
(after B) Warning! At present the special display used by the debugger is not compatible with DblPAL displays. Those programming with such monitors should insert the DblPALFix.bb code at the top of all their Blitz 2 programs (see Coverdisk).
SOME TED KEYBOARD CONTROLS Return - move cursor to new line ShiftRetum - break line at cursor position then move cursor to new line ShiftLeftArrow - move cursor to same indent as line above FI - mark block start F2 - mark block end F3 - block to disk F4 - paste block ShiftF3 - delete block good start! Click the mouse button to return to the Blitz 2 editor.
So win the MouseWait you ask? Delete the second line and find out. Ila!
So if you don't have a MouseWait you don't get a chance to read the message, the program runs but finishes and returns to Ted before you get a chance to read the message!
If you wanted to keep printing the same message over and over again until the mouse button was pressed we would use the following code: While Joyb(0)=0 ;repeal while the mousebutton isn’t down Print "YOWZA!"
Wend Weird huh? If we wanted each message to appear on a new line rather than all jumbled up together we could replace the Print command with Nprint. Note how we use a semi colon before the remark on the first line instead of the old Rem statement.

PROJECT 1 - STRAIGHT TO THE DUNGEON!
MONSTAS IN THE DUNGEON!
The first project for this feature is a simple text based game with a fully functional Intuition based editor to accompany it. Text based dungeon games where the monsters are the letter M go hack to the first mainframes.
Because this version works with a standard console window I was able to get it running as a "DOOR" on a local BBS so people could dial in anti play it on-line.
The game at present is really only a working shell. The aim was to keep it simple and concise, not fill it with complex monsta psychology.

The following code will open a new Screen and open a Window on that screen: dimension array and draw border istring array tor our objects ;open user interlace :retresh map window .main loop based on Intuition events jTKl .select brush from tool window Else Screen 0.10."My Screen" Window 0.0.12.640.240.S1 Oof.'My Window". 1.2 WailEvenl Now that we are
going to lie using windows in our programs we can abandon the MouseVVait command in favour of WaitF.vent. With Intuition information about what the user is doing is passed to your program in the form of “Events".
The WaitKvenl command will pul our program to sleep (so it doesn't hog CPU time in the Amiga's multitasking environment) until the user clicks on the mouse, types a message, and so on.
MENUS Menus must be delined before you open any Windows in Blitz 2. Mentis are made up of titles such as PROJECT and EDIT. Off these titles are Menultems and from these there are sometimes even SubMemis.
To add a menu that has a Quit option, we would use the following code: MenuTitle 0.0. PROJECT" Menultem 0.0.0.0, "QUIT", "Q" ;even has a keyboard shortcut!
After the Window command we would attach our Menu to the new window with the SctMenu command, in this instance: SetMenu 0
• After getting a menu event (code SUM)) the functions MenuHit
and Itemllit return which item in which list the user selected.
Have a look at the main loop in the editor listing to see how
to handle the Load, Save and Quit menu requests.
GADGETS Gadgets are the buttons that appear on windows making good Amiga software such a joy to use. Blit 2 supports various types of Gadgets for you to add to your program, your editor makes use of text gadgets and proportional gadgets (sliders), we will cover siring and shape gadgets next month.
As with Menus, gadgets must be created before Windows are opened in your Blit 2 programs. The following code opens a Window with three text gadgets and prints a message each time the user presses one of them. Just to be annoying, the window jumps in a random direction after a button is selected! Note the Gadget! Lit function is similar to the MenuHit function and contains which gadget caused the event.

BANG!"."Button 3" The sliders that you are use to on the Amiga are also known as Proportional Gadgets. In Blit 2 there are a number of commands to both control prop gadgets and read their settings. The following descriptions use the terms body and pot. Pot refers to the position of the slider bar in the gadget, the body refers to its size.
SetVProp & SetHProp are used lo configure both the sliders pot and body VpropPot & HpropPot return the sliders current vertical & horizontal position VpropBody & HpropBody return the sliders current size Redraw should be used after using the SetVProp and SetHProp commands Back to the Editor I won't go into too much detail about how the editor all fits together. I have included lots of continents throughout the listing so that you can get the most from studying them.
The main thing is an explanation of what to do with the editor once it's working! The lirst thing you should do is Load the map I have placed in the dungeon drawer of the cover disk. Using the Load menu from votir new dungeon editor lind the MAPI file I have saved for you. After successfully loading the program von can now scroll round the map using the slider gadgets on the side of the window .
OK. So what do the different letters represent' WALL O HOLE (that monsters fall down) ¦.string array to hold message in .set up our 3 buttons .across the window M MONSTER (oh no) B BLITZMAN (thats von of course) Click on anv of the buttons in the ToolBox window, you can then paint on the main window simply by using the left button of the mouse. Simple, huh?
A few rules that I haven’t checked for in the program:
• Don’t have more than one Blit Man in the dungeon
• Don’t add more than 2” f monsters!
• Don’t paint on any ol the walls that border the main area
• Do Ix- c reative!
Next issue I will show you how to use graphics in windows so we can expand the editor for generating "tile" based maps for those seemingly endless scrollers which are still the rage, whether they be plaiformers or shoot cm ups. Make sure von have your graphic artist at hand, you may even need two now that you're programming in Blit 2!

COLOURS - Number of colours WIDTH1 - Foreground Bitmap width WIDTH2 - Background Bitmap width (same as Widthl if not Dual Playfield) started, it’s up to you to turn it into something fun and addictive. Don’t Input off because it just uses boring text and doesn’t have snazzy graphics. That sort of attitude is responsible for some of the worst Amiga programs around.
This project is aimed at gelling toll into a creative mode without being slowed down by the glamour ’tude.
First up a little bit of detail. The dungeon program loads in maps created by the dungeon editor, and lets the player (the B character) move round by typing I- R. L’ or D and then return. At the moment, you can’t walk into walls and neither can the monsters (they’re the big M’s) hut you can fall down holes as can the monsters. Yup. You guessed it. The game ends when you’ve tricked all the monsters into falling down holes rather than eating you up!
To turn the listing into something even more playable (gasp!) It’s time for some more technical stuff... Two major features we have added to Blitz 2 are NewTypes and
l. inkcdLisls. The dungeon game is a very simple introduction to
both, as information about each monster is held in a NewType
and all the monsters are stored in a Linked List!
NEWTYPES Similar to the fields of a database or structures in ( .. Blitz 2 NewTypes are designed to contain a collection of data in one variable or record. Say we have a ball in our program that has both an x and y value as well as a height. In standard BASIC we would assign the hall three variables: When utilising a dualplayfield display we use the ShowF and ShowB commands to position our two bitmaps on the display.
Dim ballx(50).bally(50).ballheight(50) By defining a NewType that can hold not one. But three values: NEWTYPE Object x:y:height End NEWTYPE We then only need one variable for our hall: ball.object x=20.30.50 Or il we have 50 balls we onlv recptire a single array: Dim ball.object(50) L’sing NewTypes not only keeps your programs simpler but much easier to maintain. If we need to add more fields for say. The ball’s size we just add a size field to the NKWTYPF. Definition, no need to dimension another arrav!
NO t) LINKEDLISTS A standard array in BASIC holds a fixed number of items. Often an array may Ik- dimensioned to hold say 50 items, but at any one time the program may only have 20 items stored in the array. Separate variables are required to keep track of how many items are held in the array and several commands are needed to add a new item to the arrav and even more to delete one.
In Blitz 2 the linked list means these hassles are a thing of the past. The following creates a linklist structure that ran hold a maximum of 50 halls: Dim List ball.object(50) The “list pointer" referred to in the following description is an internal pointer that replaces the index required hv standard arrays. This internal pointer means we no longer use an index so: ball(n) x=20 :using standard array where n is the array index is replaced by: ball() x=20 :no index required as the list has an internal index pointer To add a new ball to our list we replace: II n 50 Then n=n*1

isometric shape generator, the angle o* each axis can be seen
clearly with each shape.
With the Addlfem command which returns false if lhe 1-ist is lull: II Addltem(ballO) Then ball() x=10,30.50 A ivpiral loop to move all the balls in a list looks like: The ISO-RK.NDKR program listed is used to render Iti rotations of each of our shapes. Kach ol the shapes is made up of balls connected together, the data tables at the end contain the number of balls in total and then the ball.
. V. information. The following is a screenshot of the balls and their relative codes so vou can create some extra shapes lor the game.
As we are rotating a shape around its ’ , axis we use the following matrix multiplication: reset internal pointer back to head ot list ;loop through list until we get to the end ;tnove "current" ball right ResetList ball() While Nextltem(ball()) ball() x+l0 Wend ISOBI .AST KR drawer of the ("ovcrdisk You must have ISO-Rcnder running before yon can run ISO-Blaster heeanse ISO-Rendei creates the shapes file that ISO-Blaster requires.
So, who's Isometric? Isometric is a common perspective lor developing ill) games on die Amiga. Ihe diagram on the lelt shows the angle of each of the three axis in our game. I'sing an isometric perspective is verv fast compared to a proper 31) view, there is no vanishing point and so shapes don't get larger and smaller depending on their position which means we can “pre-render" all our shapes The AS1.

PROJECT 2 - ISO-BLASTER Tiutc art* two listings this month to get us smied on our ven own original arcade game. Listing I - ISO-Rendei - orates isometric shapes out ol what are commonly known as vector halls (af’lei a ven cool demo some years hack). Listing 2 - ISO-Blaster - is the actual game (well the statt of a game). Both programs require the graphics liles which I have placed in the THE ISO-RENDER DISPLAY As it is useful in see all tile shapes we generate on the screen at once.
ISORender opens a nice big hi-res interlace screen. We can use Blit Basic’s last Blit commands with an Intuition Screen with the help ol the ScreensBilmap command. Af ter using this command Blit 2 enables us to Blit to the Sc reen just as though it was one of our own bitmaps.
T he following is a brief explanation of some new commands used in the ISO-RKNDKR listing: LoadShapc - can load aits IKK ot Blit Type graphics file into a shape object LoadShapes - can load a series of shapes from an IKK AniniBrush or Blit I Ape file LoadPalctte - reads colours from an IKK file into a Palette object SaveShapes -write shapes to Blit Type graphics file format
- for drawing rectangles onto a Bit.Map Blit - copy shape to a
bitmap using the Amiga's Blitter BlitColl - pretent to blit
shape to deduce if bitmap is blank underneath GelAShape - copy
data from bitmap to a shape object Handle - position the handle
(origin) of a shape Vwait - Wait so many frames (50th secs)
Restore Read - standard BASK! Commands to handle DATA
Continued overleaf BACK TO THE DUNGEON!
II you grasped all that you are doing extremely well. If you didn't don't worry, go ahead and type in the dungeon listing. The remarks ate there so you can get just as much out ol reading through the listings as studving this tutorial.
As I mentioned earlier, we will be expanding the map editor to handle graphics next issue. With this in mind you may want to start designing the graphics to replace the I*B() graphics, anim brushes will lie fine hut keep tilings small. The graphic version ol dungeons will use shapes .iIhiui Hi x Hi and of course Ik- real lime, none of this hitting return aliel every move!
Tile nice thing about the next version is it will still use Intuition and hence multitask with the test of vour svsiem.
Unlike our next project... The NextltemO command moves the internal pointer on to the next item, returning false if there is none. I.inkedl.isls produce not only tills code hut fast code, faster than normal arravs using standard indexes And just to prove just how cool linked Lists are we can add ot delete items Irom a list in one command! We could add the following line to the inside ol the previous loop: II ball() x 300 Then Killltem ball)) :try that In normal BASIC!
II sou slept through maths that das it might he wise to ask someone a little more attentive to explain matrix multiplication to you. L'sing tile above function we can rotate all the halls in the shape around tile (vertical) axis any degree we like.
However like other BASIC.s we have to remember the Sin() and Cos() functions in Blit 2 work with radians: A full rotation (3fit) degrees) is equal to 2’pi radians, so to rotate out shapes through Hi rotations we accomplish this in steps of pi 8 radians
(31) 0 Hi degrees).
I n Render each rotation ol each shape we use the following steps: Loop through 16 rotations in steps ot pi 8 radians Loop through all the balls in the shape Read in their x.y.z ottset (3d position) Rotate this position around the current rotation value Calculate the balls’ depth so we can sort them from far to near Sort the balls Loop through the balls in the sorted order and draw them into the frame Next Rotation [x] * [ SINO COSO) = (x-siNOrycOSO. XCOSO-ySINO) lyl I COSO -SINO] Natural breadth To have real breadth in our printer product range seems natural to the world's second largest

On with the game!
ISO BLASTER The game at the moment is I suppose a mix of Atari's Crystal Castles and Asteroids howevet it's not going to stay that way for long! At present, the ground is made up ol tiles and you are able to rotate and accelerate in anv direction vim wish. A lew heli-bees circle round the place and generally everything is peacelul.
Next month, we will add some ammo and work on a routine to explode the shapes back into separate parts. If we get enough space we'll add a map editor and introduce some height into the game so gravity starts playing its part. Howevet the important thing this month is to get to grips with Blit mode and how we can set up our own display.
DISPLAY BASICS Blit 2 has two modes known as .Amiga-Mode and Blitz-Mode. All the code we have covered so far has been running in AmigaMode and we have been able to utilise the operating system's Screens and Windows for our display needs.
Now. However it is time to forget about the operating system and switch to Blitz mode. The primary difference is that we no longer have access to Screens and Windows, instead we have to displav our graphics using what is known as Slices.
The following code sets up a bitmap (display memory) and displays it on a standard slice: ¦.turn oil OS (we're on our own now!)
BLITZ BitMap 0,320,256.3 Slice 0,44,3 Show 0 Boxl 0.0.100 100.1 MouseWait 8 colour lores bitmap ,a standard 8 color slice .display bitmap 0 on our slice ¦.drawa box .wait lor mouse click You might want to its the following as data for vottr new shape: There are some important rules that govern what you can do while your program is in Blit Mode: ISORENDER.BB BY SIMON ARMSTRONG ;all fields are q (last 32 bit fixed decimal point) :used lor sorting list ol balls from back to front .color ol ball (see table) ;3D position of ball ;screen position ol ball alter iso-projection NEWTYPE balltype

• NO F1I.E ACCESS
• NO WINDOWS. SCREENS, GADGET COMMANDS
• NO MULTITASKING Ouch! OK so Blit mode is a serious state to
Ik- in! The benefits are. Of course, more speed and total
control of the Amiga's custom chip set including every display
trick in the book. The two main display tricks we need to cover
this month are dualplayfieid and double buffering.
DUALPLAYFIELD On a standard Amiga the display hardware is capable of displaying 2 bitmaps at the same time, one in front of the other. The limitation is that each bit- plane can only contain eight colours. AGA has increased this to 16. The benefits of DualPlavficId arc the ability to scroll (move) each bitmap separately and the speed increase of not having to worry about the background graphics when drawing the lore-ground action (because they are on different bitmaps).
DOUBLE BUFFERING QBLITS T he next thing that needs mentioning is the use of Blit 2‘s queue system.
One method of moving shapes around the screen is to clear the entire bitmap before blitting the shapes in their new position.
BLITZ TUTORIAL An alternative is to remember where all the shapes were in the last frame and clear onlv those parts of the bitmap when it comes time to redraw them in their new positions. T his is what Blit 2 queues will do. Each time vou Qblit a shape to .1 bitmap the position is stored in a "queue". When it comes time to redraw the bitmap with new shapes positions the I'nqueue command replaces the UUS command to quickly clear the bitmap ol the old shapes.
And back to ISO-Blaster trO.1 Mow that we know about displays and queues we're ready to get on with the game. There are a few concepts in ISO-Blaster that I will not cower in detail this month. They include the use ot Macros and pointer variables and the UsePath directive.
Just quickly: One of the main criteria in programming any sort of moving graphics 011 a computer is that the display does not flicker or glitch. A main cause of this is when the bitmap that is being displayed on the monitor is also being redrawn by the computer. To avoid this problem two bitmaps are required, one for display and one to be updated with the next frames information.
Once the next frame is ready the two bitmaps swap jobs and the first one is now updated and the second one displayed. This alternating of bitmaps is known as double-buffering.
The following code is a very simple demonstration of a double buffered display: BLITZ BitMap 0.320,256,3 BitMap 1.320,256.3 Slice 0.44.3 While Joyb(0)=0 Vwail Show db:db=1-db:Use BitMap db :two identical bitmaps : standard slice ¦.while no mouseclick ¦.vrait for top of frame :show f bitmap and use the other ClsiCirclef 160.128.r.1 :r=QWrap(r+4,10.200)
- .draw new circle Wendu you remove the Vwait the double
buffering will no longer be synched with the display and the
animation ceases to Ik- smooth and glitch free.
WHAT'S IN STORE FOR FUTURE ISSUES MACRO: a group of commands defined in a macro can be repeated through your program by using ! Macroname. Any parameters in curly brackets are inserted into the macro expansion at locations marked by 'n where n is a parameter number.
POINTERTYPES: a variable preceeded by an asterisk is known as a pointer, it contains the location of a variable not the actual variable itself. In Blitz 2 pointers are most useful for referencing particular items in a list.
USEPATH: any variable name listed after UsePath will be inserted before variables referenced by an initial backslash by Blitz 2 at compile time.
The rest of the game? Well we've run out of space. As I mentioned earlier I have put a number of comments in the actual listings themselves and made them as structured as possible. This means that you will hopefully have no problems reading through and learning from them. The only way to get to know a new language such as Blitz 2 is by immersing yourself in it soon you'll be reading the listings as if they were in English, well that's what BASIC is all about!

QwmmmmwE Time to burn rubber! Climb in the cockpit of Team 17's race driving demo... (5 Race on!
EgL Take on the computer cars in this exclusive track from Team17's new - viewed from b I above racer.
Megaworm L c'.
Moir lun than II looh' To load the Overdrive demo, simply switch on your machine and insert Coverdisk 52b. To load Amiganoid or Megaworm, or to access the Mega-Lo-Mania fix. You'll need to load Workbench first then put the Coverdisk in.
AGA FIXES We've arranged specially for your games to be tweaked so that they work on the new A1200 wondermachine.
TOP-DOWN RACING GAMES are iwo-a-penny, which makes Overdrive seem like an odd choice for an addition to Team 17‘s impressive range of Amiga software. Written as an arcade-style version of the classic Su irr Sprint, Team 17 have concentrated on making Overdrive as playable as possible, with fast .71111 scrolling, and realistic acceleration on die cars.
Our demo of Overdrhv pits you against two other drivers in eight laps around a single circuit.
Your car’s easy to control - press lire to accelerate, and push left and right to steer. The on-screen drivers at Team 17 boast a fastest lap time of 00:12:39 seconds, so see if you can beat that!
MANSELL-TYPE TIP Your car is prcttv responsive, which you can use to keep your speed up through bends: so long as you drop oil the accelerator coming around a corner, you’U be able to slide around the bend.
THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO RUN OVER... jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker Is one of five games you will now be able to play on an A1200 Spread across both Coverdisks you'll find a number of fixes to load five games onto your A1200 These are Powermonger, PowermongerWWl Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker. Mega-to Mania and R-Type. Mega-lo-Mania fix can be found on Coverdisk 52a. The others on 52b.
Double-click on the fix you require, then when it has loaded take out the Coverdisk and insert disk one of the game. It should then load itself up as usual, and run happily on your A1200. Note: The fixes will only work with original copies of the games.
WHEEL - Picking up wheels will give you some vital extra grip through the patch of oil.
FUEL - Like cash, doesn't do anything in the demo - but it makes a nice diversion.
H -v .
B OIL - Watch out for the dirty great orrible oil patch, because it will make your car slide about in uncontrollable fashion. Try to drive through it in a straight line - and remember that picking up extra Wheels will help you get through it safely.

There's not much point in me writing instructions for Defender, because Acid have done it for you already! The screen above appears just before you begin a game, and we've included it here as well in case you get stuck.
DEFENDER'S ONE OF those classics: a game which was bom in the early days of amusement arcades, a game with unimpressive graphics, but distinctive sound effects and with gamcplay so good that... err... people are still talking about it ten years on. ("Thev don’t make them like thev used to,” etc.) after you've loaded it up. The one thing you might notice if you're a real Defender expert is that the laser fire is slightly different, but apart from that it’s absolutely identical (right down to the samples taken directly from the arcade machine).
Defrndn was one of a generation of top-class machines from Williams, so we'll just take this opportunity to mention again that its contemporary Kitholron is available its Jeff Mimer's Shareware classic Ijnmalmn (all good PD libraries).
Acid Software have taken the original Williams arcade machine, squashed it down and stuffed it inside sour Amiga. At least, that's what it looks like Fail to rescue your humans and they will be turned into mutants like the pinky-green chap on the right.

THE OBJECT OF this neat little game is to collect randomly placed white pills by moving your worm around. Sounds easy? Well, add to this that you can't crash into the walls, your body or another worm, and it gets more difficult.
Another temptingly simple game offering courtesy of Kirk D'Souza... There are ten pills per level, each of which increase the length of your worm. There are fifty levels ranging from very easy (Level 1) to virtually impossible (Level 50).
Some pills are coloured, and have the following effects: Light Green Increases speed for 10 seconds.
Dark Green Decreases speed for 10 seconds.
Purple Doubles the length of your worm, and gives you extra points.
Pink Halves the length of your worm.

MORE SOUND ADVICE (FROM NISHIZAWA) ?
66 It’s because I've spent two years getting the new Star LS-5 Series right that I’m sure it’s right for you.
In quality, features, value-for-money, and compatibility with your existing PC and software.
Mind you, it wasn't easy. Designing a series to meet the needs of so many different people and systems. Squeezing them into an incredibly small footprint. And specifying as standard, many features usually only available in far more expensive models.
Such as the RISC processor I installed for the first time on this level of printer to give you first page printing at a speed comparable with costlier machines.
And what about the way 1 insisted on improved typeface technology. On low cost general purpose printer there are 14 resident bitmapped fonts and 15 TrueType softfonts for Windows 3.1 on disk.
Each model - like the LS-5 More than that, the LS-5 EX (a very fast stand alone or networked printer) has an extra 8 scalable PCL-5 Agfa Intellifonts and upgrade paths to Truelmage (Microsoft PostScript) and AppleTalk. While for the ultimate in DTP performance and flexibility, the LS-5 TT also has additional 35 Truelmage PostScript resident fonts for true WYSIWYG on Windows and Apple Mac.
And just wait till you see how Star's unique Resolution Enhancement Procedure (REPP produces a genuine 600x300 dpi. Add this to the new- combined microfine toner drum cartridge and the improvement in print definition is clear!
Turning to paper handling I was determined to give you the flexibility to meet virtually all printing needs: from large mail shots to heavy duty envelopes.
So apart from dual source (50 + 250 sheets) there's also a third source option to give an 800 sheet capacity in four paper sizes.
To help increase your business efficiency I specified automatic dual interfaces and user modes which will enable PC users to share printers within the company.
And then I ... well unfortunately I’ve run out of space! But if what you've read so far sounds good, send off the coupon for even more details on the superb LS-5 Series.

THE DAVE ROBERTS COLUMN The former deputy editor of trade magazine CTW, now a power-packed industry Insider, reveals the latest whispers in the Amiga world.
DYNAMITE WILL BLOW YOUR MIIIID TO YOU, THE Amiga CD32 might look like sex in a box. To others, it looks suspiciously like a white flag. With the release of a console, has Commodore conceded that there is no longer a home computer market? Apparently not. UK MD David Pleasance claims that while he believes CD32 will outsell the A1200, the disk-based keyboard-included thing called a home computer will survive. Well, possibly. But then Sheffield United tend to survive. Simply surviving isn't really much of a future.
One fact is that there will always be computers in the home. Some people will want to work from home and they will need a computer. And consoles are computers on a long holiday. But a computer in the home isn't home computing. Home computing is a concept that defines a consumer - probably you.
It means that the computer was bought to do everything on.
ONCE. HOME COMPUTING was highly fashionable and the Amiga was the leading supermodel. The idea was that there was a generation of late teens early twenties who had grown up with Speccys, C64s, or whatever as part of their lives and so were games-mad and computer literate.
Soaring sales supported the theory as the Amiga built up a user base of over a million. It was king. But into each reign a little life must fall and recently the concept of home computing has looked wobbly. How many Amigas bought in the past five years are still being used to zap aliens, design cars and organise cashflow all on the same day? And how many are being used about as regularly as Stevie Wonder's kaleidoscope?
Sure the Amiga might have been bought with good intentions, but did it end up as what the consumer wanted all along
- a games machine? Let's not forget that at the time the Amiga
was the best games machine on the market. And if it was bought
for serious work and those intentions remained, how many of the
original buyers now have a PC or Mac at work and find It easier
to have the same machine at home?
SO WHO IS buying the Amiga these days? Who is 'home computing' now? We seem to be in a transitional period where the multi-purpose machine doesn't fit too comfortably. At well under £100,16-bit consoles are the best choice if you want a games machine. OK. The carts can be pricey, but Nintendo has recently cut prices with most big-name games now £39.99 (and considered good value by the Mario millions out there).
For the computing side of things. PC prices are coming down and even business heavyweights such as Compaq are believed to be considering bundling a few games with their lower-end options. And if you want a bit of both worlds, then - hell - why not buy both machines? A PC is always a pretty sound investment and the SNES, well it's only £75 in Toys R Us.
That is not to say that the concept of one-machine-does-it- all is on the way out. On the contrary, the idea of one box performing myriad tasks has never been more to the fore.
It's just that this time the concept goes far beyond what we understood by the term home computing and. Therefore, well beyond the reach of the Amiga. One of the main reasons for this is that the disk is dead. Well, it's certainly dying. The biggest software publisher in the world. Electronic Arts, has already said that it is embarking on no new disk development.
THE CONSENSUS IS that CD is the software of the future. So the hardware can bridge all sorts of markets - music video, games, business and others that haven't yet been dreamed of.
At the moment the only thing that can't be done is compute - because you can't write on to a CD - but a new format Son of CD, will undoubtedly change that. Then home computing will be swallowed up by a greater beast probably called 'Home Everything' - games, movies, music work, shopping, networking - and the new concept will be controlled by firms like Sony. Matsushita. MCA Universal and Time Warner.
Yes. It may all be a long way down the road - but not as far as you think. Three years ago people were arguing there was a place for machines like the Spectrum and C64 in the market.
Soon, disk-based computers will be washed away by a tide of CD machines. And when you've got CD you expect a lot more than a combination of OK games and interesting packages.
Home Computing is dead. Long live Home Everything! If THE NEW AI200 Desktop Dynamite bundle is described l Commodore's Marketing Manager for Retail Products. Jonathan Anderson, as the "best ever" package that the company has released. And he could well be right.
The bundle, which is targeted at the lucrative Christmas market, is an exercise in aggressive marketing aimed at confirming the AI200's position as the most popular home computer in Britain, according to Anderson.
The programs inc luded with the A1200 are the Wotdwarlh 2 word processor (worth £129.95). Digiia'x Viit Manager print enhancement program (worth £39.99). the Dpainl IV AO. paint package (worth £99.95). and the two platform games Oscar (worth £25.99) and Dennis (worth £27.(19). There's also a spec i.tl edition of Amiga Formal in evers box.
.All the programs are AGA versions, which means thev lake lull advantage oi the incredible graphics produced bv the AI2 K)*s Advanced Graphics Architecture c hip set.
The bundle costs £349.99. so. With the c urrent price of the A1200 at £299. Customers are only paying £50 for software worth more than £320.
Savs Jonathan Anderson: "I have been with Commodore lot four vears and this is defi- nitelv the licst pack we have done. W'ortluorlh and Dpamt are both industrv standards, the games are verv good and Digita l*nnt Manager is an excellent print enhancement feature."
Since the A1200 price drop to £299. Sales have rocketed, with two major High Street retailers selling 1.000 units a week over the usuallv slow summer months. This means that l the- tittle sou read this, sales of the A1200 will have risen from 97.000 to over 1011.000. With such an attractive bundle in place lor the Christmas market. Commodore are obviousls aiming to set- off what remains ot the- opposition in the home computer market and send A1200 sales soaring even higher.
aimmodore are planning two more bundles, both to arrompanv the new Cl)1- console. The lirst will feature a range of the current CD software, and the second will include lull Motion Video titles It GRAB YOURSELF AN XMAS PRESSIE!
Daze Marketing have an early Christmas present for Amiga owners. They are releasing Storm Master (AF33 90%), Metal Mutant, Crystal of Arborea. Boston Bomb Club (AF28 74%). SuperSki 2 (AF35 70%) and Starblade (Af15 67%) all at £2.99 each.

ICL HAVE NOW begun to uphold their obligations under the new warranty and distribution deal revealed exclusively in Amiga Format last month.
The distribution network is already working efficiently with what little stock they have. Distribution of the CD32 started successfully in early September with units first finding their way to the shelves of Rumbelows. It's just a shame the software houses hadn't managed to get any games there too.
The key to ICL's success where lesser beings have failed will be the warranty question, which has proved to be the Achilles heel of Commodore's operation since the FMG fiasco back in '91.
However, ICL seem more thon equipped to deal with the problem. Their Wakefield call reception centre, which also coters for their thousands of Willi,mi (nhson novel. sJohn explains: “li’x got everything: grunge, hikers, the network and action. Lots »l action! It s line cvbetpunk".

Corporate clients, has a record of answering 98 per cent of colls within three seconds. It's not just a question of answering the calls either. If necessary, problems are logged and passed on through a vast network to ICL service centres throughout the country where trained engineers analyse them.
The service terms for the new CD32 machines are if it breaks you send it back and they will return it fixed within 10 days; A1200 owners will get a visit within four working days; and lucky A4000 owners get o next-day visit.
The service lines, which ore in operation from 8am to 8pm Monday to Saturday, became operational on 1st September. David Palk, general manager of the system service division says: "Things are going swimmingly well..." WIN CEIIITO!
Having used ii for his video work. But he wanted to take a look at the Video Toaster Lightwave LI) package before he made up his mind (discover more about it on Page 36). But after initial discussions with Ron Thornton (of Babylon 5 fame) John is sure the Amiga is the answer to his prayers.
Another reason the Amiga appeals is price. As John explains: “I got the local Mac guy in. And he came up with a quote. One Quadra 950. Peripherals and software would have taken the entire special effects budget of the movie. I can afford two A4000 Toaster set-ups for less."
John's plans for the Amiga's involvement in the movie don't stop with just ray tracing. “We might be doing some digital comping [combining images) with computer graphics and live action on the Amiga, that would be a world first." He says. "Once the Screamer [an accelerator for the Toaster which uses two RISC chips in parallel for amazing speed] is available, it will be twice as fast as a Silicon graphics Iris workstation.
The Imu Si at fighter was done on a Cray One - a Screamer Toaster should be twice that fast...” Not only will the film owe its existence to the Amiga, but if John gets his wav Wetuiare will appear on CD '- too. Shadowmaker are seeking a computer software house to convert Wet ware to a game.
"This kind of action movie would be ideal lor Cl) games." John urges. "The timing is just right, we're just about ready to start talking about a computer game at the time Commodore have announced FMV. We have the ability and we're prepared to shoot loolage especially for the game. You know, stuff where the stars do direct to camera dialogue and things like that. So anybody interested in doing the game would be involved from ground level.” We’ve seen the script, and Wetuiare is the film that we here in Amiga Formal have been wanting someone to make for years. "If all goes according to plan,

0 01 o. at HI a i HI 0 z The games industry has finally decided that computer games should have movie- type ratings. European Leisure Software Publisher Association members have become registered members of the Video Standards Council. The decision has been hastened by FMV and the digitised footoge in the Mega Drive game Night Trap. Most games will remain exempt, but to get into the spirit of things we've voluntarily given Zombie Apocalypse on this month's Coverdisk a 15 rating.

From the local news to global media events, from Tiananmen Square to the Gulf. There is no comparison. Television has the power to change the world.
OK. That's all very well, but what's all this techno cyberboggle got to do with us? Well, there is a device in production in California that has the power to change the shape of television forever.
This device is actually a peripheral for a humble home computer. The computer, of course, is an Amiga. The device? New Tck's Video Toaster.
The Video Toaster is the best piece of Amiga kit in the world, used by TV and film companies to generate amazing effects and graphics. Now for the first time it can be used in the UK, Nick Veitch wants to show you how wild it is... TIME FOR TOAST The Toaster is the most price-effective and powerful single unit video production facility. It gives the Amiga the power to render superb animations, create video quality text and manipulate graphics mixed with live video in any number of devilish ways. In America it has been nothing short of revolutionary.
The Toaster was the stuff of a Silicon Valley legend. A team of designers locked away for four years, eating cinnamon cakes and rarely seeing daylight, toiled away in secret creating the dream machine. Their front was that they were working on a new toaster, and so they were.
The Toaster is not a single entity. It comprises a piggy-backed video slot card and 45 disks containing the hottest rendering and video manipulation software in existence.
But all this happened a long time ago. W'hy should we now bother going back over old ground? Well, early in its life a great tragedy struck the Toaster. One of the important components, the image generator chip supplied by Sony, fell out of favour at the Japanese HQ. It wasn't taken out of circulation - in fact it is still in production now, but any further development was put on freeze. This was only a tragedy for us Europeans though, because Sony never produced a PAI. Version of the chip.
To redesign the Toaster with another chip at its core would have been an expensive and lengthy task, and one which NewTck didn't really need to undertake. The Toaster had already caused a storm, especially after it won a Best Mac Peripheral Award. That's right, cunningly disguised Amigas, fitted with Toasters, were successfully displayed and sold as external video devices for the Apple Macintosh at Mac shows all across North America.
With the mass of publicity. Toasters leapt oil the shelves. With it being all they could do to keep up with demand in their home territory, it was hardly surprising that NewTek didn't feel the need to expand into overseas markets too.
DIGITAL VIDEO EFFECTS The Toaster can create literally hundreds of digital effects such as those seen all the time on TV. Flips, spins, tiles, curtains, page-peels, zooms, squeezes, blinds, rolls and mosaics are but a brief selection from the list.
Many of the effects such as whips, zoom trails and luminance dissolves were impossible on conventional equipment when the Toaster appeared on the scene.
The Toaster is capable of so many effects, you won't have heard of half of them!
FRAME GRABBER The Toaster also features a built-in frame-grabber and frame store. This will save a full resolution video image in 16.8 million colours for use in other parts of the Toaster or for direct playback through the frame store. The playback speed is up to Sfps when stored in the Amiga's RAM. And obviously they can be used in conjunction with the Switcher for transitions and effects.
Individual frames can be grabbed and stored - colour comes in 16.8m varieties!
CHARACTER GENERATOR When you need a title or video caption, there is no reason to quit the Toaster. Amongst its armoury there is an excellent character generator, which is nothing to do with RPGs but is a lot to do with rendering fonts at video resolution.
Collection of fonts, including some There are many different fonts and treat multicoloured and chrome-effect ments you can use to create video titles, examples.
Along with pure text on screen you can play around with 24-bit graduated tints, semi-transparent shadows and variable speed scrolling. The captions can be linked to the switcher to provide any number of spinnirvgly, zoomingly, tumblingly amazing displays.
COLOUR PROCESSOR A powerful colour processing engine is provided, capable of manipulating and digitally altering any image that comes before it. Many of the effects will be familiar to those who use Art Department, but many more are unique to the Toaster software.
Image Processing on the Toaster can handle just about any effect you Images can be uniquely manipulated and digitised beyond recognition.
Could possibly think of.

5 NO, WITH MARMALADE... Bui now that has all changed. The Toaster, now in its vastly improved Toaster 4000 form, "ill shortlv be making its official debut in this country.
Toasters have been used in this country for years, but only for off-line processing and to run
l. inlilmive, the superb rendering software. The difference now
is that NewTek have been talking to Prime Image, a company
which specialises in video hardware and produces a 'standards
convenor'. This gadget will convert NTSC signals into a
Ktttopean PAL signal. So. Apart from having to install a few
more boxes in your Amiga, you can have your video workstation
toasting away in a decent screen mode.
So what can the Toaster actually do for you?
Well, just take a look at the images on this page.
Keen thing here was generated by the Toaster, working on recorded video sources (it could just as easily have been from live sources). In fact it is far easier to talk about what the Toaster can't do for you. Anyway, keep reading for a guided tour to the miracle that is the Toaster... Continued overleaf » LL 1 i LIGHTWAVE This stunning shot from the award- winning sci-fi series Babylon 5 was created entirely in Lightwave.
THE MOST INTERESTING pan r the entire $ 2,000 Toaster package lor most people is the amazing Lightwave rendering software. To compare l.ighlwaiv to the likes of Imagine is like comparing an A4000 040 to a ZX80 - they are light years apart.
Lightwave was the first rendering package to break away from the traditional tri-view mode employed by other modelling packages. The triview is a throw-back to the place where 3D-rendering packages originated - the Computer CHECK THE MAP When it comes to surface-mapping your objects, Lightwave is only matched by Real3D2. Mapping is the process by which surfaces are given properties which affect the way they reflect light and therefore alter the way they look in the final image.
The types of surface properties found in almost every rendering package are reflectivity and specularity. These control the amount of light reflected by the surface and also the likelihood and intensity of any highlights appearing.
In addition to these, Lightwave has diffusion, luminosity, transparency, and bump maps. Bump maps control the actual texture of the surface.
Without a bump map the surface of a sphere is treated like a sphere, but with one the sphere could become a textured object like an orange - the bumpmap adds information to the rendering process concerning the actual physical roughness of the surface, so light doesn't necessarily follow the obvious incidence-reflection path.
Another neat feature is the introduction of scaleabte fractal noise which can be used to add a degree of realistic turbidity to any surface.
Aided Design workshops. Since draughtsmen were used lo creating objects viewed from three planes (front elevation, side elevation and plan views) it seemed only natural for their early computer counterparts to adopt the same system. This is all very well for designers, but the problem for modellers is that it is very difficult to visualise what the image would be like when viewed from any other angle, which after all is the whole point.
I. ighlwave does offer the traditional views (albeit one at a
time) but does not restrict you to This effect is also in
evidence applied to a transparency map to create fog
effects. That may not seem very clever to you, but think of
the poor Japanese mathematician who spent over six years of
his life trying to create an algorithm that could render a
realistic fog effect!
These. A full moving view with true perspective is also available, enabling the usei to position the shot with a wire-frame model while the objects are still being designed. I bis is a feature which has only just become available in other software.
THE MODEL SHOP In order to create pictures, though, you first need objects to render. Lightwave separates the creation of individual objects from the composition of scenes and these are done in a Modeller module.
The approach is very diltcrcnl from any other design system, but it is most like Imagine in that objects can be created and modified in layers.
Lightwave has much more powerful tools, though.
Essentially the designer has at his disposal every tool a traditional sculptor has. You can manipulate objects bv 'chiselling’ them, drilling, bevelling or turning them on a lathe.
Rfrnjrir B Tnliki- in RenHI), the objects are created on a points and vertices matrix, but unlike Scul it and Imagine this doesn't neressarilv result in an obvi- ouslv angular object.
Once the objects have been created you may then place them into your scene, a kind of virtual movie set. I'll is is also where the light sources and camera are added to complete the environment.
Although the camera is the viewpoint from which the image will Ik- rendered, it exists as a wireframe object just like anything else: that's because in the wireframe scene manipulating mode, von don't have to view the objects from the point where thev will be rendered. This not only helps considerable when positioning the objects themselves, but ran also be very useful when it comes to positioning the camera.
When the lights are ready and all the objects are in position, it is simply a matter ol clicking on a button to render the image. It really is the equivalent of taking a Simin picture, except that you don't have to queue for the results at Boots.
Main effects which would ordinarily be performed in some image processing package can he added before you lake the shot - the equivalent of your fancy filters. These include a fog effect, a colour clipping tool and even an alpha-t hannel compositing feature, for combining the rendered image with an existing one (the equivalent ol a multiple exposure).
ON THE MOVE Of course, one picture is never enough. When von think about it. Except for the rare static display genlocked over a newscaster’s shoulder, most computer graphics are animated. Where would your News at 1'en be with just a static intro sequence?
Would people have stayed up to watch Newsnight during the Gulf War if it hadn 't been for all those nice sequences of Tomahawk missiles skimming across the desert towards a linal confrontation with a ventilation duct? No. Pics have to move.
At this point the graphics engineer would Ik- sliglulv anxious. The thought of moving the camera and ot the objects by minuscule amounts and then rendering each frame individually is a bit daunting. Thankfully the programmers have thought of that.
There are about as tnanv ways to specify motion and animation paths as there are rendering packages, but Ijghtwanr uses one of the best, called key framing.
Instead of having to specify the exact position of every object and the camera in each frame manually, you can simple specify two frames (the kev frames) and the number of frames to be inserted between them. From tile positional data in both ol the key frames.
I. ighlu'niv will add the positions for everything in fiames in
lH-tween.
Of course, vou can still do things the long way. And in many cases this is more effective, lint it doesn't hall lake a long time. Kev framing is only particularly useful when composing straight llv-ihroughs or pans, but you can always use it to rough out an animation.
It is also possible to animate with spline animation paths. These produce smoother, curved ON THE BOX A great many TV graphics are being generated by computer these days, and not only in the places you would most likely expect to see them.
The graphics on ITV's Chart Show are obviously ray-traced images, but how many people realise that in the opening sequence of the BBC's 9 O'clock News around 80% of the set doesn't exist in the real universe?
Unfortunately the BBC didn't use the Video Toaster to create that graphic, but considering that they paid in excess of £3 million for it perhaps they should have.
Animation paths by treating the motion as a spline curve with tension and bias. These paths produce- more realistic images, as they arc closer to real-life phenomena such as inertia and gravity .
Apart from animation, splines are also used in envelopes. This is a way in which various attributes of the scene, the camera or the objects. This is a useful wav of creating effects such as changing lighting, camera zooms or even metamorphiiig objects. Because the envelope effects are independent of any motion path key-framing you may have done, both effects can be combined in one render sequence, completely automatically.
Lightwave is, on ilu- surface. A vt-rv simple tool tii use and yet its depth is such that if vou find yourself unable to create some particular object or effect, the chances are that you haven't read the extensive manual properly rather than it being impossible to do in l.iglilwave. A irulv excellent, professional image generator.
Continued overleaf » 661 H1SWBAO Of course the benefit of using Lightwave and the Toaster is that once the images are rendered they are already on-line in your video system ready for overlay at the touch of a button.
It is not surprising then that Lightwave- generated graphics are replacing those produced on more expensive systems in the USA. With a PAL transcoded Toaster to be officially launched at the beginning of October, it may not be too long before Lightwave (and the Amiga) are taking the credits in more British television. In fact they may even be generating the credits.
VIDEO DIGITAL VIDRO MCTS THE VIDEO TOASTER is the most exciting video device created, on any platform let alone on the Amiga. It is a video production system on a card, and so this naturally enough includes digital video effects, or DVEs.
DX'Es are transitions from one scene to another, which can be as simple as a cut or dissolve, to living one frame out and another in a way previously impossible without £100.000 worth of vision mixer. What the Video Toaster does best is provide these effects as part of an integrated system with access to other useful video editing facilities all on-line at the same time.
As we've seen, the Toaster is divided into what it calls Slices', a pun on the toast theme, and the primary Slice is the Switcher.
THE VT SWITCHER The heart ol the Video Toaster is the Switcher, what we in the I k call a vision mixer. The Switcher is the screen you control almost all the Video Toaster functions from, and it allows vou access to Lightwave . The (.option (teunaUn. And iMLstrrl'aint. Over the face of the Switcher are buttons. Called 'Croutons’, which operate the effects.
I. ike vision mixers the world over, the- Switcher allows vou to
make transitions in a variety of stvies.
AAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAA The old scaling tile dissolve is a nice if slightly out of date effect.
I Alpha channels are very nice things, even though these No. Alpha channels really are good, particularly if you circles are very good! Can draw a decent rectangle to distort it.
Some of which aren't available on any vision mixer for any price. You can perform tricks such as luma keying, plus it has access to another Video Toaster 'slice' called ChromaFX which allows you to add cosmic coloration on to your images. The ChromaFX engine basically allows you to alter the colour in your picture globally, over the whole frame, or in pre-specified bands across the image.
The effects are a bit like colour cycling only with full broadcast quality video images.
The DVEs are disided into six banks of buttons on to which a tiny image is drawn which gives you an idea of what the button does. Push the button with the mouse and this activates the T bar.
The T bar is a fixture on most vision mixers, and it's the manual control of the transition. This Toaster version is an imitation of the real T bar on a video mixing desk, only this theoretical T bar is mouse operated.
Move the image of the T bar with the mouse and the transition you have selected jumps into action. Push the mouse tip and down and the speed of the transition is altered under your complete control. This is. Of course, is not die best way to operate a transition, and try as you might you can’t ever match the creamy smoothness of a machine. Your hand will jiggle no matter how much you try to make it stop. Fortunately, you can also move the T bar more smoothly by using the auto feature. Set the speed of the transition and slap tile space bar. The transition happens smoothly and automatically.
Hit the space bar a second time and the effect reverses.
The Toaster has four inputs, and these can bo selected from the main screen. You can cue up two source of video, and these can be two cameras, two VCRs, or one of each. Cue up one as the source and one as the destination, and then hit the transition. Voila! Instant TV. OK so it's not quite as simple as all that, because if you use two unsyncronised tape machines you get a wobbly result, but that's the basic gist.
TOASTER TRANSITIONS The DVEs fall into certain readily defined categories. Flying frames are where a video frame zooms out of the screen in some way, either revealing another frame underneath or replacing the frame in a similarly aerial fashion. These are the classic DVEs and the one which most people who buy the Video Toaster in the US bought it for.
Next are the warp effects which distort the frame in some way. Like squashing the frame up against the side of the screen to reveal another frame. Also 3D translations, where the frame is tumbled and twirled like a flat 3D plane. Allied to those effects are the ones in which a small square of the picture pops out of the frame and flies off.
And this continues bit by bit until the whole picture has flown off the screen in various directions.
There are other effects which defy’ easy description. There are simpler ones like when the images of the new frame pile on to the screen from the left like a shuffled deck of cards. Another effect is the real time treatment which isn't actually a transition, but the Toaster uses the frame buffers to print images of previoits frames behind the current image, so any movement is perma- nently stored on the current frame. This means trails are made by any moving object, and hands and arms in the frame which move leave behind cascading images of arms and hands as they go.
Not so obvious are the silhouettes and other digitised masking effects. These are digitised outlines of people and scenes which use the shape of die object for the transition. A figure walks across the screen pulling the new frame behind him for example, but there are more complicated and interesting effects in this line.
Pouring liquid, breaking glass, clouds shifting across the frame. These are totally organic effects and are the original efTecls which the Video Toaster brought to the world of video. The silhouettes include American football players, golfers, baseball players and new for the last revision of the software was NewTek's 'Everywhere Girl’ Kiki Stockhammer in a variety of roles. For example one of the scxalled ‘KikiFX’ has her walk on screen as if the shadow is cast on a bathroom window. She brushes her hair, then seems to notice us watching and pulls down a blind, on which of course is the
next scene, with the blind forming the transition from one video source to the next.
The sports transitions have football players bumping into each other, pitchers pitching a small round image of the next frame, and golfers 'wiping' the screen with a swing of the club.
The Toaster System 2.0 also has some new 3D effects. The system doesn't allow you to create your own objects, but you can wrap video images around balls and cubes. Once wrapped on. These either spin off the screen or explode.
Throughout all this development, the Video Toaster software has been 'waking up' parts of the original hardware which were previously untapped. This evolution is complete with Version 3 of the software - a new version of the recent Toaster -1000 software which includes new versions of all the Toaster Slices including version 3 of Lightwave 31) anti version 3 of the Switcher.

This is a useful feature, which is important for italic fonts or characters which have diagonals in litem as it reduces the 'staircasiiig' effect around the outline of the font.
Rendering also takes into account any text effects you may have specified. Not only can you arid shadow effects to your characters (at varying angles) but you can also add transparency effects.
This gives the impression, when keyed over live video, of the text colourising the image below.
The transparency characteristics for the text and the shadow can be entered separately so you can have solid text with a semi-transparent shadow, an effect which looks particularly impressive.
RAGE AFTER PAGE Captions and screens for keying are created in 'pages’ on the Toaster. If you like, these pages can be sequenced to form a book. The page way of working is the most sensible, even though successive pages may use the same backdrop with different words or vice versa.
There are four different types of page. The simplest is the Keyed page, which is text on a transparent background for overlaying. This is probably the most useful and most used option, as the caption will be referring to some live video.
The second page type allows the graphic to lie overlaid on to a backdrop, which may be either a solid colour, a graduated backdrop or any IFF image at all. Really.
The last two page types deal with scrolling text one for horizontal scrolls and one for verticals.
There is no reason why vou can’t interleave these last two types, hum that catchy Tony Hatch ditty and lake a trip back io when the airwaves were polluted by Crossroads.
ADDING SOME SPICE Of course, once tile ‘pages’ have been created, you’ll want to overlay them on to something. For this it's back to the Switcher, where the caption pages can be manipulated in the same way as any other computer generated graphic. That means that with lull image keying you can have your captions appear using any' of the wipes or DYF.s explained earlier.
It is now de rigeur to have page-peeling captions on American TV. And the Toaster can do that easily. By using the frame buffer you can even mix between two generated caption pages.
Continued overleaf OVEMBER 1 PERHAPS ONE OF the usually more mundane tasks that professional videomakers use their expensive equipment for is generating captions. Virtually every factual piece of footage has a caption in it somewhere, and even pure entertainment programs need a chaiat K r g iterator for the |t j5 possib|e to over|ay rendered images on to graphic backdrops generated in TossterPsint. In this example, the odd title or credits sequence. The Toaster has a text actually scrolls up the screen, special 'slice' for this, called ToasterCG.
IIM CHARACTER Captions arc all about text, so the Toaster has to be able to generate characters from stored fonts. It also needs to be able to generate them at any si e required. 'Aha - sounds like a job for Mr Gompugraphic, 1 hear you say.
Indeed, the Toaster does support Amiga (XI style fonts (which is not why the program is called ToasterCG, by the way - it stands for Character Generator), but it is more happy with standard Postscript fonts. Fonts must be individually loaded into the character generator one at a time, and in the specific sizes you wish to use them at. The reason for this is that all the fonts must lie stored in RAM for use with ToasterCG. This may seem a bit of a pain, but it is sensible as it allows the software to manipulate the fonts at a reasonable speed.
The fonts are thus displayed in the requestor with their relevant sizes when you select them. You can then enter the characters on to the screen, but they only appear in a preview mode while they are placed in the correct position on the screen.
RENDERED SAFE To actually lay down the text you need to select the Render option. The difference between the preview mode and the final rendered image is that while rendering ToasterCG will anti-alias the louts directly on to the current screen so that you can see how they will look when displayed. Anti-alias- TOASTER FONTS In addition to the fonts which are supplied with the Toaster (and that is quite a few), there are now several font libraries operating in America which offer complete families of popular fonts in a Toaster useable format. In fact there are probably more fonts available
for the Toaster than there are for a standard Amiga One company. B&P Graphics, is offering an incredible 1.000 Adobe Type 1 typefaces on CD-ROM for a mere S499!

mJAII RON THORNTON WORKS for a companv we have featured before
in Amiga Format.
Foundation Imaging. He is pari of the team responsible for the stunning effects used in the American sci-fi series Halrylon 5, and all that work is created on the Toaster. We asked Ron for Ins professional view of the Toaster and. More importantly. His opinion of the brand new Toaster add-on. The Screamer. This is what he had to say... TOASTERS, SCREAMERS AND SPACESHIPS It sounds rather too good to Ik- true. Star Ivarr effects at Ih Who prices, but you'd better believe it.
The Video Toaster from NewTek is beginning to have an impact on the Hollywood effects industry.
It is over a year now since the two-hour pilot of Realistic motion blur makes Lightwave behave more like a movie production facility than just a rendering package.
Knhylon 3 was in production. At the time () was unique in being the only television show to have all its visual effects created on personal computers.
Now they're all at it. Even Stephen Spiellterg has set up a Video Toaster facility after laving down $ 15 million on the spectacular computer graphic images lor ttrn.vwr... er. What's it called?!
Spielberg's 'IV show. Seaquest AST. Is due in the I k by the end ol this vear and Itoasts an enormous number of Toaster'-generated effects, and under the guidance ol Jim Lima (the EX designer) should Ik- amazing.
Linlnlon 5 has been picked up lor a season ol 22 episodes, and promises to break some new- ground in the genre ol TV sci-li (I should know.
I’ve read the scripts).
Ihe Amiga has been around for a long time, so win hasn't Hollywood picked upon it til now?
The- answer is software. I have owned an Amiga since 1988 and dabbled a little with 31). The main problem was that the soltware was designed for tinkerers anti hobbyists. One developer punctuated a tech support call I had made with "I lev.
W hat do you expect for 11 '.I')?". The Lightwave model for the main image of the Babylon 5 space station occupied over 30Mb of disk space, which isn't that surprising considering there are over 200.000 polygons in it. The image on the right is a bit smaller, but still you can understand why Ron uses 20 Toasters to produce his visuals.
Done servers and rendering scripts. This is no longer a one-man tool.
NewTek has its I IQ in Topeka. Kansas, a t in half the size of Tunbridge Wells, where the spiciest food is ketchup. This must explain the state of mind of the company whose research and development department has voluntarily adopted the name Alcatraz. So when they call you anti say: "Would you like a machine twice as fast as a ( tav One. That runs l.ighturave, for only $ 10,000?" I just mop up the drool and sav "Gimme!”.
Suddenly you have rendering power that makes Silicon Graphics Indy look like a VIC20.
With 600 MIPS (million instructions per second), the Screamer will render about 40 times faster than a stock Amiga 4000 040. It's a network in a box - four MIPS RISC4400 motherboards controlled by a Video Toasier4000. No wonder the fashion computer manufacturers ate in a tizzy.
The announcement of the Screamer at '93 Sigraph caused the guy sitting next to me to say “600 MIPS? That's a typo, man".
Hie fact that the Toaster and Screamer are both NTSC native machines need not matter.
ASDG's .lit Department Professional now has a PAL Abekas saver which means you can stick it to the fashion boys anywhere with your desktop Cray.
So how about it Gerry, want to do Thundnbirrds again with computer graphics? FAB!
Continued overleaf » award for their computer graphic effects in testament to lightwave's superb ability to reproduce realistic Images.
Needless to s;n the package in question went into the bin with all the rest.
To prevent further aggravation I made a rule for myself. If I can make and render something in 3(1 minutes without looking at the manual I’ll buy it. The next package I bought was the Toaster. At Iasi, not a toy but a tool!
Lightwave (the Toaster's 3D rendering package) is an amazing piece of software, mainly because the programmers, Allen Hastings and Stuart Ferguson, are frustrated film makers. They wrote the package to make their own movies. The user interlace vocabulary is film related, not geek speak.
Toaster 4000 contains the latest evolution of Lightwave, sporting features such as Tens Flare and Bones (an anintatable displacement of geometry that usttally costs around $ 60,000 to do).
The major drawback with the Motorola 68040 machines is speed. The fashion CGI facilities are always quick to point out that even though the quality is good, the speed is not. They are right of course, so we but 20 68040s. The problem is partially fixed by using a network of multiple cheap CPUs. Now you get into Novell Netware. IBM THE TOASTER MAY l -, stunning bit of equipment, Inn you can't just plug it in and use it in your Amiga unless you arc reading I his in the US or Japan. When the engineers at Newtek planned the Toaster, they decided to base it around the NTSC (National Television
Standards Committee) standard, as used in the United States and Japan. So, when they designed the complex chips that make up the toaster, they designed them to work with this type of 1A' signal. This means that the Toaster can only accept an NTSC input, and also outputs an NTSC signal.
Unfortunately, the standard used in the UK and Kurope is completely different.
Video equipment in the l'K uses the P.M. (Phased Alternate Line) standard, which isn't compatible with the NTSC one. So if you want to use a Toaster in the UK. Vou need to convert all of your video signals from PAI. To NTSC before you feed them into the Toaster. Once the Toaster has had its evil way with tin- signal, you need to convert its output back to a PAL signal for you to feed into your monitor or video recorder. What is needed is a device called a standards converter.
Which can take a PA1. Signal and convert it into a NTSC one (or vice versa). To use the full facilities of the Toaster, at least two of these (one for the input, and one for the output), or possibly three- lone for each ol the two inputs) will be needed.
THE PRIME FACTOR American video equipment manufacturers Prime Image have recently released a new standards converter. Which promises to bring toasting to the UK at a reasonable price. It's a full length card which lils into any of the PC slots in a big-box Amiga (the A2000, :)()()() or 4000). Previous standards conveners have cost several thousand dollars, and have involved a great loss of quality because of the conversion. The Prime linage model uses a new technique to convert the signals (called Comb Through). Most converters work by taking an average ol the video signal, and creating
the new- signal from this.
This process leads to the 'fuzzy' appearance you see with videos converted to PAL from NTSC, especially on one ol the many domestic video recorders which can play back NTSC tapes The Prime Image converter gives much better quality than these, because all ol the image conversion is done using digital circuitrv. The incoming image is converted to an 8-bit digital signal, and this is then processed and converted by the card.
I bis card also acts as a time base corrector. If vou want to feed two signals into a toaster, they need to In- time base corrected. This means the various timing signals included with the signal (which include things like when to jump back to the top of the screen) need to be synchronised.
NOVEMBER 1993 THE PRICE OF TOAST Creating a PAI. Toaster set-up isn’t going to be cheap, but compared to the cost of conventional video equipment it makes financial sense. You're not going to get the same quality as equipment designed especially for use in PAL. Inn from what we've seen ol the quality of the converted image, it's good enough for use in a home or semi-pro set-up. Rest assured that Amiga Tormat will bring vou a lull review as soon as we can. 1) The Sid Com PC.H standards converter is made by Prime Image (0101 408 867 65 9) and distributed in the UK by Tories (OKI 579 2743).
The exterior may be sleek but lurking inside the Amiga CD32 is a technological wonder.
At it's heart is the mightily powerful 68EC020 processor from Motorola. This contains the 32 - bit technology which has made the Amiga 1200 a runaway success throughout Europe.
Alongside it is Commodore's unique custom AGA (Advanced Graphics Architecture) chipset - comprising three chips nicknamed Paula. Lisa and Alice.
INDI DIRECT MAIL Proudly Presents THE JAKKI BRAMBLES COLUMN Together they make Amiga CD32 and awesome powerhouse of high speed graphics and stunning sound capabilities.
In fact, the machine can display 256.000 colours on screen (compared to Scga's Mega CD which can only display 64) and has a total colour palette of 16.8 million colours.
Amiga CD32 also comes with a chunky 2 Meg of RAM that's 15 times more than Mega
CD) and a double speed drive.
Hi. It's been quite a month in the Commodore marketplace, no sooner had we all been told that Commodore had lost their shirt than we have been inundated with masses of good news.
First we have the launch of two brand new Commodore Amiga 1200 packs one aimed straight for games market the other firmly at the more mature purchaser. The Chartbuster Pack is great value bundled with Nigel Mansell's World Championship race simulator. Trolls AGA and the all time favourite Amiga Challenge Pack. Desktop Dynamite reinforces the all round strength of the A1200 with a very powerful package based around Wordworth AGA.
Print Manager, Deluxe Paint IV AGA, Oscar AGA and Dennis The Menace AGA.
It's good to see Commodore create such a clear distinction between the Amiga 1200 market and the games console market, soon to be dominated by the Amiga CD32.
As 1 write this article the first of the CD32's are about to land in the Ukwith a promised street date launch of the first w eek in September. The major news around this product is just how many of the softwaRe publishing houses are enthusiastically writing for it and of course that Commodore have decided to bundle 2 great soft- w'are titles at launch.
Not to be outdone INDI have added a third so look foreward to receiving Oscar, Diggers and Lemmings when you take delivery of your New Amiga CD32.
The other item of news from Commodore does appear to be causing somE contusion. It is true that Commodore have appointed the giant ICL company to look after the warranty on their products but this only applies to Amiga CD32 and the Desktop Dynamite Pack. All other products and packs previously purchased or yet to be purchased will be covered by Wang.
Finally it was very sad to hear this week of the demise of Diamond Computer a well known advertiser in the Amiga Market. There is no doubt that the recession continues to cause the closure of many companies often without warning. Once again please be careful with your hard earned money and make certain that you follow the code printed in most magazines before you make that special purchase.
See you next month.

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 are 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.

LIVINO GuW« a team c _ u»ou0,7~~m lack legend are currently working on no less than six new games for release on the Amiga over the next few months.
Fotman: the Coped Consumer is a seven-level platformer starring a rotund superhero who has to rescue his family from the lunatic grasp of Ted Thinsin, a mad scientist who's discovered a way of banishing fat people from the face of the Earth The game features all the usual platform shenanigans like end-of-level meanies, power-ups and humorous cartoony graphics.
Fotman goes on sale in October, priced at £25.99. Gunslingers, meanwhile, is a two-player shool-em-up set in the American Wild West. You and a pal con play Sheriff and Deputy or, more excitingly, the Outlow whose posse is arriving to shoot up the town. The action's viewed from a bird's-eye perspective and there are six different game types - including one agoinsl all - as well as numerous strategy elements. Gunslingers is due for release early in 1994, price yet to be confirmed.
There's more shoot-em-up action in Fear, an action adventure game set on a space cruiser which has been taken over by a gang of particularly nasty aliens. It's your job to make your way through the ship's labyrinthine corridors, disarm its defence systems and recapture it.
The game's still in the early stages of development, but it should be released early next year for the A500 and A600.
Continuing the futuristic theme is Out ol Time, the tale of a scientist who puts himself into hibernation after contracting an incurable disease. He wakes centuries later to discover the world has become an even more hostile and dangerous place, and still a cure eludes him.
The game combines adventure, platform and shoot-em-up elements and should be released sometime in the new year.
Outsiders is a 3D vector graphic adventure that pits a bunch of astronauts against a megalomaniac supercomputer called Brain.
Before you can pull the plug on the evil machine there are 700 rooms for you to explore filled with robot sentries and puzzle elements for you to solve. Outsiders has a provisional release date of November, priced at a reasonable £25.99. With all this gloom and doom around, it’s about time you cuddled up with the cutesy hero of Fantobulous, a 25-level platform game, also available next month.
The levels are split up into five themed worlds packed with baddies, secret rooms and bonus objects.
Unusually, the five levels within each world are chosen from a pool of 10, so the game's unlikely to play the same way twice.

Dead end! You can't dig through rocks!
Things are tough all over What with the galactic recession, the stock market crash and the bottom falling out of the boiled stoat market, many desperate people are looking to make a quick buck. One of the planets which attracts the lost and the hopeless is Zarg, where the promise of untold riches hidden beneath the ground lures many a potential coal board executive Of course, you aren't stupid enough to actually do the nasty business of mining yourself, since there are four races of Digger waiting to climb down a dark and dingy hole ot your command You, as the controller, stay safely above
ground controlling your Diggers. You can order them to carry out a number of actions, but don't be surprised if they decide that they can't be bothered to follow your orders, and wander off or fall asleep instead.
The game is divided into more than 30 zones, and you have to work your way through these. In each zone, it's a race between you and a computer-controlled player to get a certain sum of money in the bank, which you get by digging up jewels and selling them at the bank.
You don't necessarily have to do all the hard work yourself, though: you could nip into the computer player's mines and nick his gems when his Diggers' backs are turned Once you've got the required amount of dosh (the local currency is Zogs), you can move on to the next zone. Fail, and you have to start again from scratch The eventual aim of the game is to get 16,500 Zogs, at which point you can retire and walk off into the sunset.
The game can be controlled either with the CD controller or by a mouse, which can be plugged straight into the second controller port on the CD 2 unit. Using the controller, you cycle through the five Diggers with the green button, while the blue button brings up a menu.
Come with us to the dark dank depths of the planet Zarg, where bold and hardy adventurers dig perilously deep into the depths in search of treasure.
Richard Baguley gives you the full dirt on the very first CD32 game.
From, this you con select various Several of these bring up further subactions such as dig, walk, stand still, menus which control aspects such as There Is a valuable gem located below, but that sparkly thing teleports the Digger to a random location. Erk!
This is the home base for my Diggers. To sell the gems I have found. I have to return to this point.
Complex, and it is. The first few levels involve quite o lot of fiddling to get the option you want, but once you get the hong of it, it’s a surprisingly good control method.
The mouse is easier to use to begin with, but it’s worth persevering with the controller because the extra buttons do give you more control.
For instance, if you want to stop a Digger who is about to plunge into a chasm, just cycle through the Diggers with the green button and then press the yellow one to slop your Digger in his or her tracks. It's o lot faster than using the mouse, but hardened mouse fans may want to stick with what they know.
Things are made even more complex by the fact that you can only see what's immediately around a digger, and you only see the entire map if you win the zone.
Pick up or drop items, teleport and which direction to dig in or what to collect jewels with the red button. Drop or pick up. It sounds fairly All the way to the bank There are various different themes for the zones, including mountain, ocean, jungle and arctic. The scenery determines what sort of obstacles you are likely to come across. For instance, the mountain levels are filled with steep cliffs and deep chasms which have to be navigated, while the ocean levels are filled with weak points where you could accidentally flood your tunnels.
GAME REVIEW NOVEMBER 1 993 There are also numerous puzzles involving caverns deep in the bowels of Zarg filled with ghosts, aliens and other nasties. The reward for getting through these takes the form of special jewels which can be sold for much more than the usuol price.
To solve these puzzles, you have to use some of the tools which you can purchase through the game, CmdMMlMtHHf NOVEMBER 1993 GAME REVIEW These delicatelooking beings are resilient and have plenty of endurance. They also have the advantage of healing twice as quickly as any other race after an Injury, such as a fall or fight. They are curious. And get bored easily, often wandering off at the most awkward moments. Their aim Is to amass enough cash to build the museum of metal marvels, which will house their historic scrap objects.
QUAftfflORS - A hardy breed, who are extremely strong, but frankly rather thick. They're good In a punch-up. But can't dig for too long without getting exhausted. They have only recently moved from open cast mining Into digging, so they lack Imagination. Their aim Is to amass enough funds to build a fortified encampment where they can practice digging and beating each other up In peace.
Soundtrack plays in the background.
This is played direct from the CD, and there's also a nice intro track and another tune that's played while you're selling your gems in the bonk.
Dumb Diggers It's very easy to get confused about where the various Diggers are. And easy to forget what the Diggers are doing, because you never have a complete overview of the playing area. All you see is a single screen “ Diggers are very stupid and will happily walk into water and drown ** GRABUNS - They would be the perfect digging race, If It wasn't for their drinking problem. Their aim Is to amass enough cash to build their own brewery, for their favourite tipple. Grok, which has been described as "smelling worse than the breath of a fire breathing Scaborasoaur from the swirling slime
pools of Sulphuria". Due to Its distinctive odour. Grabilns need to buy a deserted planet to build this brewery on. Leave them alone for too long and they will all gather together to drink Grok and sing rugby songs.
Such as Telepoles (used to teleport your Diggers around the map), lifts (for moving up and down deep caverns) and dynamite (used for blasting through walls too hard to be dug through). Not only can you get around the puzzles and gain access to different ports of the map with these, but you can also disrupt the computer-controlled Diggers by doing such nasty things as blowing up their tunnels, flooding them or releasing ghosts into them.
While you're working on the nasty business of digging into the depths or releasing evil aliens into your opponent's mines, a rather nice A mystical race, who permanenty hide their faces from view. Fast diggers, they have high endurance and the ability to use other race's teleport poles. However, leave them alone too long and they will join together to chant to their spiritual master, the lord high Habbish. Who demands that to honour his spiritual awareness they build him a residence with walls covered In gems and hot and cold running champagne.
The authorities on Zarg have decided that only four races of Diggers will be allowed on the planet. You are free to choose which you want to use, but each has its own strengths and weaknesses... THE OBSERVER S GUIDE TO DIGGERS around each of the Diggers as you cycle through them. Combine this with the fact that the Diggers are completely stupid, and will quite happily walk into water and drown or stroll nonchalantly into the arms of an oncoming nasty, and you've got a real challenge on your hands.
Fortunately, the on-line help gives you full details of the Diggers' irritating little habits, and what sort of nasty beasts you're likely to come across in the tunnels.
Diggers certainly has an addictive edge, and the different levels give enough variety to make it worth coming back for more. It's not a game that you can leap straight into, since learning how to control the Diggers and how to use the tools you can buy in the shop will take several zones and many days. Once you've learnt your way around, though, the possil- bities for fun are almost endless.
Given that playing through a zone can take several hours, it's annoying that you can't save your position halfway through a game.
That apart, if you're prepared to put in the effort, there's treasure waiting to be plucked from the virgin soil...

Did you have one back in ihe Eighties? My mate torched his in Liverpool to get the insurance money. Love 'em or loathe 'em though, they're quick - off a shovel, if you will.
And they're making a triumphant return in Burning Rubber, where the Wacky Roces meets the Boy Racers in an illegal race ocross Europe and America, organised by a chap called Fast Fred.
The introductory sequence to Burning Rubber is curious. Popular music group The Utah Saints perform a tune while garbled Sixties and Nineties images proliferate on screen. Words and symbols flash forth - CND and Burning Rubber amongst others. It's all quite disturbing, though strangely enjoyable. But that's not why you're here, is it?
To join the race, pick a hatchback - there's a choice of six - then stop off at Fast Fred's Speed Shop, Jil rr.
JjiJ soup-ups a speciality. You're greeted by a woman in a rather skimpy outfit, just like at Kwik Fit, tempting you into parting with a few dollars.
You've got $ 4,000 in the kitty, so spend it wisely.
Phoaaar! Vauhall Chevettes, Renault 5s, all those sensible motors scudding around Europe in an illegal race - watch out Nigel!
There are various car parts on offer, all of which improve your car's performance; for instance, Nitros give you great acceleration but only for a limited amount of time; Brokes increase your braking speed. You can even add one of those charming body kits that improves the handling, or is it the looks? Or maybe nothing.
Foot to the floor Before you finally get to put your boot on the accelerator (which is why you're here), you have to pick a racing route. Options abound as you peruse the map, looking for a short route to the chequered flag But beware, the shorter routes often involve many junctions and you constantly have to slow down. And who in their right mind wants to cruise around Scotland in a Peugeot 205 Gti at anything less than breakneck speed?
Apart from the obvious dangers of crashing, there ore other hazards.
That hardy-perennial - the speed trap - crops up: the cops give chose and you can either try and burn them off and risk crashing, or play a patient game and wait for a gap, then go hell for leather, however, if you stop completely the cops will nob you, and that means jail.
Civilian cars are white and travel slowly - they're easy to overtake - while the black cars are competitors with drivers with varying degrees of skill.
After Scotland, there are other parts of Europe to negotiate, and with varying conditions to tackle.
SO. YOU’VE BEEN DOWN TO THAT LONDON AND THAT PARIS AND THAT BERLIN... A hot hunchback means Europe is a cathedral to your racing skills - damn, that should have been ‘with a hatchback’! Oh well.
Clio and the one on here la a Renault S. London, for instance, has high police activity and poor visibility - you race in virtual darkness. Paris is stormy and Germany has blizzards.
At the end of each level, you can go back to Fast Fred's for add-ons to increase performance, but only if you've can afford them. Crash too often and you'll have to fork out for repairs. Once in America (it takes ages to get there, believe me), you get to choose a new motor, and the courses offer slightly different hazards, including pedestrian areas.
“ You have got $ 4,000 in the kitty, so spend it wisely 99 Chequered flag Burning Rubber is o stronge bird.
The graphics are nicely drawn and you get a decent feeling of speed, particularly when you fire the Nitros into action. The view, from behind your cor works well, but somehow it isn't quite enough.

An injection of humour would have been nice - the odd deer running across the road, or maybe a peleton of cyclists hurtling around the corner.
And a two-player option would have added an extra dimension.
In a number of words, and for want of a more exciting and turbocharged sumnation to this reasonably overage arcade conversion, it has to be said that Burning Rubber drives well but adds very little to the genre.

It’s your hulkiness that makes things happen in this space- based skirmish war game, so pump up your pecs and prepare for battle... Being a man is what being a Space Marine is all about. Not a girlie-swot 'new man', but a big, tough, bio-engineered man with a ridiculously large suit of armour sporting the sort of weaponry that usually adorns a tank.
Space Hulk gives you the opportunity to play a whole team of such hormonally unbalanced Ubermensch and shoot lots of nasty aliens in the process. It's based on the massively successful Worhammer 40,000 game that uses funny shaped dice and has ruined the eyesight of many a modeller painting the little figures.
You play the Imperial Captain of the Dark Angel chapter of Space Marines and control a squad of terminators. These are heavily equipped nutters with no fear of death. Just as well because lots of them end up dead and it doesn't seem to put them off.
Kllll Will Will The eponymous Space Hulks are vast derelict spaceships that wander through warp space and are home to colonies of Genestealers. Your missions revolve around entering the Space Hulks and doing bottle with the Genestealers. These loathsome creatures do horrible things to people given half a chance, so your response is simple: you kill them.
There are 14 training missions and 37 missions proper. Most are fairly short and involve retrieving objects, getting to a set place or just blasting the hell out of as many creepies as you can. There are two main screens, a first-person view from each terminator and a Planning SPACE HULK screen. The action takes place in real time but can be frozen at any point, which is handy because things happen pretty quickly.
You ore only given a limited amount of 'frozen time' to play with though, so you've still got to think quick.
From the Planning screen you can issue orders to each marine, to move them about, open doors and shoot. From the View screen you con see whot each marine sees and you can take direct control of them.
While not under direct control marines can be left in Overwatch.
They will fire at any alien that crosses their line of sight, but won't turn around and so will get mashed if some sneaky alien scum catches them from behind. Some missions can be played using just one screen
- the two methods of control are awkward at first, but the trick
is to freeze things regularly to keep track of what's going on.
Complete control First stop is giving your walking tanks some orders while the action is frozen. Each marine is assigned a destination or course of action by clicking on a series of icons. Then you can switch to the view screen, unfreeze things and watch them clump about If a Genestealer jumps out unexpectedly you can intervene and take control of the blasting. You can also leave your chaps to it and hope they manage; or freeze things and go back to the Plonning screen to adjust your strategy.
The game lends to go in little spurts of adrenaline with the realtime business at the View screen although this is interspersed with more thoughtful tactical manoeu- vrings at the Plonning screen.
The view screen shows you the forward view from each terminator. From the main bottom window you can take direct control.
Nick Wilson Electronic Arts 0753 549442 If things go wrong you ore imme- diotely token out of the mission, often you don't even see what got you or where you went wrong. You just watch with dismay as the view screens for each man ore splattered in blood. Missions require careful planning - the skill is in carefully moving your team so all your backs are covered.
STRAN0C0 n_ GLOCKAOf LOST SCROLLS AOUANff SMARM Suitably dark and moody UNMAf O Some of the multitude of Space Hulk missions. The areas to explore are small and generally packed with Genestealers so there’s no tedious wandering around looking for trouble. It s trouble from the off.
The tension is built up nicely from the game comes on three disks so if you outset. You feel like that bloke in only have one disk drive there is lots Aliens as he watches his team of of tedious disk swapping, marines on the TV monitors.

Having spent a few min- moody and convey the claustropho- utes choosing, loading ond being bic atmosphere well without being briefed it can all be over in a few outstanding. Dark music sets the

One of your terminator marines buying the farm. You can easily lose the entire squad in seconds if you leave an approach route open.
Space Hulk will undoubtedly be loved by the same sort of people who are into the original Warhommer 40,000 stuff. It requires attention to detail, planning and a good deal of tactics interspaced with snatches of fast reflexes. Switching in and out of real-time gives the gome a very stop-go feeling.
The mix of arcade and strategy might annoy purists from each school, but the mix works reasonably well. Only occasionally do you die for no better reason than you were too slow with the mouse.
There is a great sense of urgency as you watch the Genestealers close in on your position. It can be frustrat- ingly difficult, entire teams wiped out time after time as you try to get the hang of a mission.
If you long for an alter-ego crackling with testosterone and want to take jaunts into the bowels of huge ruined space ships hunting and being hunted by vicious alien life- forms then, er, you're probably a bit weird, actually.
Space Hulk should be right up your street os long os long as you con hack the skirmish wargaming elements and are patient enough to get into it. Suck this alien scum.

Very good but not brilliant. 99 AMIGA FORMAT GAMES SPECIAL IT'S ON SALE RIGHT MOW!
PRICED AT £3.95 Soft're B'sness 0480 496497 uzzles always seem eosier to the person looking over your shoulder. Maybe it's the extra distance from the but it is a proven fact that if one person is trying to solve something, an innocent bystander will always come up and say "You don't want to put that there!". Annoying enough when you've nearly finished, but if that was your last life it leaves you even more determined to beat the blessed thing.
P problem, 96 You'll bo quite determined that a few simple puzzles won't beat you 99 I suppose that's the appeal of things like The Crystal Maze, an excellent puzzle physical game enjoyed from the comfort of your armchair. Cries of "What on Earth is he doing?” and "She's done it all wrong!" Abound while you are left thinking that you could have done better yourself. Well, this is your chance to prove ill Walking the cog Imagine the task: 12 of the world's famous monuments are to be made into clocks. This is not a bizarre advertising strategy, merely the point of the game. Your job is to fit
together cogs of varying sizes on pegs in play areas inside the monument, in order to connect a number of red cogs. When all the red cogs are connected to the motor, and everything is running smoothly, then you can move on to the next play area. When each level is finished you are rewarded with a glimpse of your clock in full working order. If there's a spanner in the works, so to speak, then the motor will heat up.
When it gets too hot it will shut down. You lose a life and must start the level again.
It all sounds devilishly simple - all you have to do is join the cogs up. There lies the problem. The cogs ore selected for you and their order is totally random - shades of the ever-popular Tetris here. It's infuriot- ing when you're one cog away from finishing the play area, level and clock (game, set and match), and all the cogs are the wrong size. You've got to find somewhere to put them, and this may mean blowing up ones you've put down already. Then you run out of bombs so you can't free the cogs up when you put one in the wrong place.
Like all puzzles it's good to have some sort of a strategy. Knowing how the cogs fit together helps, but racing round in circles trying to join up the later levels when you're running out of time is exasperating. Isn't that why you play this sort of game? Isn't it because of that pull which turns that "one last try" into staying up until the wee small hours determined that a few simple puzzles aren't going to beat you? You don't realise the addiction until you finish the last one.
Georworks is addictive, frustrating and deceptively simple. Any chance of Georworks [The Sequel)?

E&0E & 1 HI a HI 2 0 The great thing about Civilization first time around was its sheer addictability and ease of use - even if you had never played a god-game before you soon got the hang of it and were hooked for months. Not surprisingly, the A1200 version looks and plays even better with a beefed-up graphics palette and stereo sound samples. The overall look of the game has been changed in a subtle way

Out now CIVILIZATION AJ20V The world's best god game just got
even better. Sam Meier's epic history of the human race is now
available on the A1200 and looks set to wow you all over
again.
Civilization enables you control the destiny of one of eight tribes who are locked in a bitter struggle for power. In the beginning you've only got brute force and the sheer will to survive on your side, but as you explore more and more of the world, you discover a whole range of scientific discoveries which enable you to leapfrog your opponents and gain the upper hand. The thing to remember, of course, is that your Amiga- controlled rivals are all trying to do the same to tions have become smoother and more detailed. The sound effects also help to boost the game's realism with strident
martial music when you come under attack, or hammering sounds when you're building one of the world's Great Wonders. It all adds up to an electrifying and absorbing gameplaying experience.
Forget Populous 2, Mega lomania and all those other pretenders to the crown, the A1200 version of Civilization sets the standard for all god-games. Superb.
Andy Nuttail O and their quest for wealth, fame and happiness. The action takes place in both 2D and 3D modes and bears more than a passing resemblance to more traditional RPG epics like Dungeon Master or Eye ol the Beholder 2.
The original Amiga versions of Whale's Voyage looked great, but suffered from cumbersome joystick and keyboard controls - all too often you'd find yourself getting blasted to death by a gang of thugs while you were still trying to access the Combat menu. Unfortunately, the enhanced A1200 version does nothing to rectify this and you're left with a few graphical enhancements and some atmospheric sound effects to spice up the gameplay.
Even if you do overlook the game's shortcomings you're still likely to be disappointed - there are only six planets for you to explore and Whale's Voyage lacks the depth and sense of involvement found in other space adventures like BAT 2.
I O You've been left stranded and penniless in on ill- equipped spaceship above one of the most lawless planets in the solar system.
You only have one choice - beam down to Castro or die.
Whale's Voyage is a space role- playing game (RPG) which places you in command of four adventurers n at HI GO 2 HI 0 z I If 10 Out now He might look like Chairman Mao but thl* it your banker and he * not likely to *ay ‘political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.’ 86% 1869 AI200 A4C!; 9 You con’l beol the feeling of power money brings, and there's plenty of money to be made in the A1200 version of 1869.
It's the late 19th Century and the world is wracked with civil wars and international conflicts. In many ways, there's never been a more exciting time to launch a business venture.
You play the owner of o fledgling shipping company and you have to use your skills as a tactician and businessman to exploit the various trading situations around the world. If you succeed then your business expands, but if you fail, you could end up losing more than just your livelihood.
The A1200 version of this Formal Gold winning game doesn't actually seem to be that much different from the original version - you get the same brief animation sequences and humorous interludes.
You even listen to the same irritatingly nautical chip music.
However, 1869 can be best appreciated in multi-player mode with you and up to three other pals battling it out for ultimate control of the high seas.

VI. B. -r r The excellent feature of Morph Is that you can visit
any one of four levels first - so If you get stuck, move to a
different level. Simple, eh?
And the subject of this week's platform game is... matter reorganisation. Eh, wait a minute - what's that all about, then? Well, the main character in Millennium's new AGA-only release is a blob, similar to the one from System 3's Fully. This blob has the excellent party trick-type ability to change (or morph, hence the name) into any one of four states: gas, liquid, rubber or solid.
Using this amozing ability, the idea is to make your way through 36 levels of puzzles and traps. Some traps will only snag you if you're in a particular state: for example, the spike will burst a rubber ball, and the extractor fan will suck any passing gas into oblivion. Sometimes it's necessory to fall through a grid, which is only possible for a liquid, whereas you need to be a gas to climb up a pipe. These puzzles and traps seem simple to negotiate, but given that you have a fixed number of 'morphs' things get more difficult.
MORPH AGA Morph is expertly designed and programmed. The A1200 game has an extra 12 levels and 256-colour graphics throughout. The extra levels make the game more difficult, so Millennium have responded to complaints that the original was too easy. A1200 owners will relish it.
Andy Nuttall & Peter Johnson Millennium 0223 844894 PRICE £29.99 NOVEMBER 1 993 GAME REVIEW n neartY •W,*Y When football was invented by Yorkshireman Albert Soccer in 1863, he couldn't possibly have imagined how populor it would become. And when Barnsley housewife Agnus Chippy unleashed the first computer on an unsuspecting public in 1950, she could surely not have forseen the demand for the 'football simulation'.
Who can be bothered playing real footboll these days when you can sit at home and pretend to be Ryan Giggs? And it's no wonder the nationol team are struggling when John Barnes plays all his matches ot home on his Amiga (allegedly).
Step forward European Champions, the latest option- packed contender.
Select the strength of the wind, have a lenient referee, use the video replay system, play sideways or top down, use manual rador mode, select PingPoss or PointPass, ploy for 90 minutes on astroturf, on skill level 10 - and then have a game of football. It's os simple as that, really.
Time for a change But are these the options we wont?
No. It's time for something different.
What about a Football Style game, where you shape a footballer's look, right down to his haircut? Marks could be awarded by Football Taste Police (or your Amiga). For instance, a BMW driving, bubble-permed Cockney with a four-bedroom semi in Hemel Hempstead would be awarded, say, five out of 10. But give him an E-type Jag, a bob and a two-bedroom townhouse in Fulham and the mark could shoot up to seven. Add to that cowboy boots and an affair with a 'supermodel' and you're staring down the barrel of a nine. Then you get to play in the Cup Final. However, I digress.
European Champions is at least attempting to be different. The sprites ore bigger than Gordon Strachan, but when playing top-view down, they run in a very strange manner.
And with a rather restricted view, it can get a bit confusing at times. The side view is similiar in look to Manchester United Europe, but the play is far quicker. It's a matter of personal preference - the side view is my favourite in this game.
Get to grips with the game Passing the ball should, in theory, be a simple exercise. Not so in European Champions. The manual does its level best to explain the options available but it's tough going. You can find yourself playing sweeping moves and scoring fantastic goals without really knowing what you did. OK, you pick it up gradually, but it's heavy going.
And I have other gripes. There are no black players, the scrolling occasionally falls behind play, and goals are sometimes awarded when the boll hasn't crossed the line. And the crowd sound like they are singing in a toilet. But the ref plays advantage (nice to see), you can commit barging fouls, and the goal celebrations are spectacular.
European Champions tries hard to please. It makes the right noises without quite hitting the mark. The number of times I've been bearing down on goal and attempted to shoot, only to see the ball passed out to the wing. Oh, it's my fault, but it's just a mite too confusing for my taste.
It's not a bad game. It's just that there are better football games available. Top marks for trying to do something different, but beaten by a goal in the dying minutes.

Admittedly, this can be achieved with Desk Top Publishers, but they can't easily be used as Word Processors, especially when a good looking letter needs creating quickly they're far loo cumbersome. This is
where Final Copyll offers the perfect balance between the two requirements. Lise and speed of use. Combined with complete control and perfect final primed preseniaiion. Complete control over how documents look, now YOU have it at your finger tips on your Amiga!
Features include: Release 2.0 (AGA) On-Screen Drawing Tools for generating boxes, borders, and lines or arrows al any angle. Multiple Newspaper Style snaking columns, combined with the unique ability to use the same PostScript outline fonts - on absolutely any printer in portrait or landscape.

NOVEMBER 1993 GAME REVIEW Phew, what a package!
Five manuals and 12 disks covering all the various UMS releases: the original and frankly rather dated Universal Military Simulator itself, plus sequel and upgrades UMSII: Nations at War, UMSII: Planet Editor and the UMSII Civil War Scenarios.
The first thing that strikes you about the package is that it's all rather disorganised. If the developers had bothered to re-write the manuals and repockage the software life would hove been a lot easier.
An example. There are no instructions on installing the first UMS on hard disk. To install UMSII there are Shell commands for you to type in (which are wrong, incidentally; the command path udisk: should have add after it) and to install UMSII: Planet Editor you must use icons. Consistency would be good.
It's also rather wearing to plough through five manuals, covering over 600 pages, and five installation procedures when one of each would hove done. However, you do get a lot for your money at around half the price you'd have had to pay for the complete set. Shame it's all slapped together rather than lovingly crafted.
UMS, huh!
What is it good for? Well, quite a lot actually. The package breaks down into two definite sections - UMS and UMS II. Both offer a lot of possibilities. The surprisingly aged UMS itself is still a damn good skirmish controller. Over a small playing field you can recreate any two-sided conflict, although it can be frustratingly UMSII is a different thing altogether. You have an entire world as your ploying area, with multiple opponents and allies, all of whom have artificial intelligence (of a sort) that you can manipulate. There are very powerful display options which let you zoom from
viewing the globe into an area of a few hundred square miles and colour graphics!
Like UMS, UMSII can be very slow at times. If you play the Desert Storm scenario it takes several minutes for all the computer-controlled nations to make their moves, and that's on an A1200. On the plus side, the moves that are finally made are rational and within the parameters set by the Artificial Intelligence options. Rome wasn't built in a day, nor did it fall in one.
De»lg»-a-planet One of the highlights of UMSII is the Planet Editor. You can create all kinds of terrain features, place cities and towns, designate nations ond alliances and then, of course, force UNIVERSAL MILITARY SIMULATOR THE COMPLETE COMPILATION PACK slow ot times. Once you get into the heot of battle, despite some rather cheesy samples emanating from your speaker, you do get involved.
The options are excellent, letting you view the battle from any angle and zoom in and out as you wish.
You can even switch sides half-way through a battle if you don't like the way it's going. You can play against the computer, letting it choose its own tactics, or you can force it to attack you through the middle, try to out flank you, defend and so on.
"IT IS WITHOUT DOUBT THE MOST POWERFUL CAD PACKAGE FOR THE AMIGA BAR NONE. NO OTHER PACKAGE COMES CLOSE" AMIGA FORMAT Mirage 0260 299909 Early October them all to kill each other. It's all very healthy and natural, even spiritually rejuvenating. God must be loughing.
Flawed genius?
UMS suffers from a greatness that is also its fundamental flaw: its versatility With UMS you can recreate any conflict from any age. Indeed, there are several scenarios provided with the gome ranging from Alexonder the Great, through the Napoleonic wars to Desert Storm.
As well as the provided scenarios, you can create your own. With the editing facilities you can roughly recreate any type of military unit from a dragon to an anti-grav sled- mounted thermonuclear Gauss Connon. The problem is that you might well end up giving these two vastly different entities pretty much the same statistical values, with the only difference being their name.
UMS is likely to lose out on atmosphere in the long run, for this very reason - there is little difference in the feel of the game whatever epoch you are playing. A Roman road looks much the same as a 12-lane highway.
A game like Campaign, which is much richer in atmosphere, cannot compete with the long term appeal of UMS. It does, however, make use of the Amiga's tremendous graphics potential in o way that makes UMS look like it isn't trying. The UMS control system is cumbersome too, relying almost entirely on pull-down menus instead of point-and-click.
In all, UMS is a must for the serious war gamer. If spending Saturday afternoons in draughty village halls shuffling thousands of tiny little men around o big polystyrene-and-rubber playing field is your idea of a good time then UMS was made for you.
But it is serious stuff, and therefore not recommended to more frivolous gamers after a quick thrill.

Xcad SPEED-An Amiga 1200 is 12 times faster on zoom and redraw than AutoCAD running on a fast '386.
PRACTICALITY - Ideal for design in architecture, electronic and or mechanical engineering.
COMPATIBILITY - AutoCAD DXF import export comes complete across the Xcad range. Print to plotters, laser or dot-matrix printers.
MODULAR - Simple upgrade from Xcad 2000 to Xcad 3000 and PC UNIX versions.
Xcad harnesses the incredible power of the Amiga to deliver a draughting tool to beat all others. Processing times are cut to a fraction of most PC based systems. Plans, designs and blueprints can easily be produced using simple, flexible menus or commands.
The Xcad range starts from as little as £79' for Xcad 2000 (1Mb FAST RAM minimum) which includes both 2D Detailing and 3D Modeling plus automatic perspective views.
The above building was designed by Architect David Bishop, modelled by Xcad and rendered with Imagine.

NOVEMBER 1993 GAME REVIEW COMPETITION Creating a sequel is a difficult task, particularly if the game you are trying to enhance is a classic in its own right. Caesar had everyone donning a toga and plumed helmet, prancing about in front of their Amigas with delight (well, we did).
Perhaps it’s a good thing, then, that Caesar Deluxe has been designed to tweak and complement aspects of the original rather than introduce drastic changes.
Civis Romanus Sum If you attach no significance to the name Sim City then you have truly missed a classic - a rigorous test of urban planning and development.
Caesar was a clone of that landmark production.
Nevertheless, it received the coveted thanks to THE RULES: No employee of Future Publishing, Dlgl Print or Lightwave can enter this competition.
With a Dlgl Print Interface, rou can u»e a .mart IBM PC (oyetlch like this: It not only look, and leels the part, but It nl.o give, your plane roalntlc re.pome and feel Right sim freaks - ultimate control is within your power!
For ultra sensitivity in manipulating your aircraft through the toughest of missions, an analogue joystick is a must. Sadly for the Amiga decent ones are rare. For the PC. However, there are plenty to choose from, and this is where this excellent interface from Digi Print comes in.
Available from Lightwave for £14.99, the DP IBM analogue interface (reviewed AFA9. 80%) is a short grey cable with a standard Amiga 9-pin plug on one end. And a 15-pin socket where the IBM joystick plugs in, and it makes flight sims far easier to control.
There's a huge range of games that support analogue on the Amiga including Birds of Prey. A-10 Tank Killer
vl. 5. F15 Strike Eagle II. Flight of the Intruder. Knights of
the Sky. Red Baron. Flight Simulator II. Dog Fight (out
soon), MiG 29. MiG 29 Super Fulcrum. F-19 Stealth Fighter.
Air Warrior. Gunship 2000. Jumpjet. Nova Nine.
Formula One Grand Prix. Ancient Art of War in the Sky.
Tornado (out soon), Reach for the Sky. A320 Airbus.
F16 Combat Pilot and Mansell s World Championship!.
Well, if that huge list of games isn't enough for you to get excited about, then we don't know what is. Now for what you have to do to get your hands on an analog interface is answer the following questions.
A) Which hi-tech Russian fighter plane crashed recently in an
airshow in Britain?
B) Which World War II flight simulator won an AF Gold in Issue
48?
C) How many pins are there in an IBM joystick socket?
Send your entries on a postcard, or sealed envelope to: Rying High Comp. Amiga Format. Future Publishing, 30 Monmouth Street. Bath BA1 2BW. Usual rules apply.
Added dimensions of defence and conquest and its cute little houses.
The object of Caesar is to help the empire by establishing a city within the province over which you have jurisdiction. Building the city is difficult because you must monitor many aspects of its development, but your ability as a governor are represented by the four pillars of Roman civilisation: Peace, Culture, Prosperity and Empire.
Increasing each of these is hard, but the difficulty of juggling several problems ot once is what makes Caesar so fascinating. The state of the first three aspects can be improved by building defensive walls, creating more amenities for your citizens, increasing industrial output and so on. Your imperialist abilities, on the other hand, are gauged according to your city's expansion on a provincial level and a new feature allows you to create Imperial Highways which connect your city to other provinces as well as other towns.
This makes Caesar Deluxe even bigger than its predecessor. Just remember, though, that you'll also have marauding barbarians pounding ot your gales and other disasters to cope with, so preparation for the worst is essential. A catastrophe can have repercussions which shatter the city, but desperately taking steps to save it is just as enjoyable as watching it grow.

Dulce et decorum est... In order to develop the city you must monitor its progress ond this is done with the help of several advisors who are found at the forum. Here, the changes rung by Caesar Deluxe really begin to show with the addition of another counsellor to your merry band. He joins the existing oracles of fiscal and social information os a sort of Department of Trade and Industry inspector (BC), offering advice on industrial expansion in your province.
An odd change to the game is that slaves are now called 'plebs'.
Other enhancements in the game are mainly designed to add to the fluidity of play, and include a rearrangement of the main icons and the addition of a viewfinder to the main, bird's-eye view window. There's also a panel that explains icons as you slide your mouse-pointer over them frantically while the city burns to the ground The new control system only fractionally improves the whole arrangement, but it was already excellent in the first place.
Overall, the game has been polished in all respects, right down to packaging and documentation, but don't expect this to be a sequel.
Impressions have almost achieved a version that is geuinely 'Deluxe', but you have to ask yourself whether it is worth paying £ 14.99 for a what is only a very slight upgrade.
Caesar remains a classic and if you don't have the original invest in this. However, with the impending release of Sim City 2000, a new empire is about to be founded.

Your brilliant. I don't think you need to know anymore than that really.
Stephen Bradley. Amiga Formal.
Right, now it's time for a game of Micro Machines. What do you mean you want to know more? Shoo. Go on. Outta here.
MAC ©0 ©0©0©0©0©0 Look, I reolly don't wont to write about this game, I just want to play it. Even as I sit here, somebody has wandered over and started playing it and already I'm jealous. Moybe I could hove a quick game? But then there's no such thing as a quick game of Micro Machines.
It's probably a bit complicated to explain, but please bear with me.
You race a very small car across a breakfast table, avoiding milk and cereal. It's that simple. (I lied before.] All right, you also sail boats in the bath, fly helicopters in the garden, drive tanks across a games table and negotiate racing cars around a pool table. And it's absolutely bloody You can't talk about this game.
Not like, say. Soccer Kid, where you can tell your mates about all the clever tricks he can do, and the interesting places he goes. These diddy cars haven't got any special characteristics. They're small ond they zip around the house. End of story.
OK, OK. It's for one or two players. Satisfied? All right, here's more.
Five smirk-inducing, but dastordly deeds you can do to your mates in Micro Machines. 1. Force their © ©COCCO0 ooooooooo© © © © o © ©©

o o powerboat down the plughole in the bath. 2. Knock them into
an orange.
3. Edge them off the side of a ruler.
4. Blow them up with your tank. 5.
Nudge them onto a lawn sprinkler.
And the thing is, it's all so wonderfully childish. Married men have sat before the screen, giggling after bashing each other's boats into a rubber duck.
This game is not sensible.
There are 24 courses, eight types of scenery, 1 1 different drivers and four ways to race. But it's in two player mode that Micro Machines really comes to life. The game only uses one screen so both players must be on it at the same time. Unlike other racing games, the idea is not to zoom around the track faster than your opponent, rather, to put enough distance between you and him until the scrolling catches up and he disappears off screen. Each time you do this you gain a bonus; once you've amassed eight, you win the race.
Heck, that's enough detail.
Micro Machines is a gome that makes you giggle in a daft manner and addiction is more a probability than possibility. Gripes? Well there's no parallax scrolling so the edge of the tables can be difficult to spot.
And the shadows don't match the shapes of the cars. But we'll let them off just this once, eh? Driving a tank on a draughts board has never been so much fun - everybody should ploy this at least once in their life.

The pinball table Is a closed system. AH the variables are under the direct control of the laws ot physics, therefore there can be no chance.

“ One of the greatest games on the Amiga is even better on CD32.
Life would be a worse place without this disc, a truly 'Classic CD' (crap mag pun). ** review Robocod when It llrst came out on the Amiga. Maff Evans reviewed It, back In Issue 29. And a damn line fob he dk) too.
Back then Robocod scored a huge 91 per cent, and time has not dulled the shine on this glistenlngly great platform game. But times have changed and Evans has gone to be a knob-twiddler on Future Music.
I. ON THE other hand, have had the opportunity to review
Robocod twice In the last tour Issues. First It was the
all-new (well.
Enhanced AGA game.
Now, In Issue... hold on. Let me take a took at the covet... oh yes. Issue 52.
Robocod Is back again And this time James Pond Is flashing Ms (Ins on CD32 Millennium can quite rightly be proud of themselves tor the undeniable achievement ol having got the (Irst CD32 game on to the shelves (their Diggers beat It to the machine, but comes free when you buy one). Surety they deserve to sell bucketloads of this game, then?
• Robocod has earned a coveted Amiga Format Gold award twice.
• It Is, without a doubt, one of the moat playable, enfoyable.
Colourful and generally suckworthy Amiga games ever. Evert
• The CD32 version ol Robocod has the What a stupid bloody
question. Digital Illusions did It almost a year ago with
Pinball Dreams. They Improved on K with Pinball Fantasias, and
for a while we spent more time In the office after work than we
did in the pub. Eventually we came to our senses and started
playing real pinball, but for a while there we nearly earned
our anoraks.
NOW ITS OUT for CD32. Can It possibly improve on what Is already one of the greatest games ever to grace the Amiga? Of course - there’s 256 colour graph Ics for a start, with the already gorgeous tables now rendered even more gorgeous. On first Impressions the gamepiay seems to have been ruined by CD- isatlon. The screen Is massive (wed. Our fabulous new Nlearn stereo telly is, when compared to our old 1084S monitor), which Is merely weird.
GAME REVIEW NOVEMBER 1 993 PROGRAMMERS Chris Sorrell Millennium 0223 844894 Out now But scrolling Is much faster, and the motion of the ball smoother. For some reason (possibly the 50 frames per second animation) the act of scrolling from the bottom of the table to the top, and back again, at high speed is nowhere near as nausea Inciting as It used to be. Digital Illusions have been freed of making allowances for the limitations of l&bit technology. The ban trajectory algorithms are now all computed by the speedy 32-blt 68020... and It shows.
These enhancements are disconcerting at first. All the shots seem easier to make than on the Amiga 600 version and visions of truly huge scores start flashing before your eyes. A few more games dismiss these Illusions and after a few days' hard playing (hey! There’s no other way to play pinball!) These dreams ate diminished, and It becomes obvious that Pinball Fantasias CD32 Is actually more challenging than the computer version. How much of this can be ascribed to the Joypad control method Is a moot point, and of no Interest to anyone.
THERE ARE ONLY two blots on this shining star of a game. Firstly, there's the excessive price. £32.95 is simply too much. What happened to lower prices on CD product? And secorxty. And closely related, there Is no reason why all four of the Pinball Dtaams tables couldn't have been put on this disc as a bonus. There Is no chance Pinball Dreams will ever stand alone as a CD32 product In the wake ol Fantasias. For this tightness on the part of the publishers, this 95 per cent game gets downgraded a full 10 per cent Marcus Dyson £ I have spent months on this.

Is it one of those pirates? No, it’s Stephen Bradley... There's nothing us reviewers like more than whinge- ing about the price of games, so when a brand-spanking new, more than decent racing game is released for a snip at £12.99, well, it rather takes the wind out of one's sails.
And that's exactly what the Th.,.-. 00 such thing ». . HH rid., but Wakefield-based Team 17 program- Team 17 have coma up with a nlca chaap ono. Mers hove done by releasing Fl7 at | a budget price in a fit of generosity not usually associated with Northshire folk. Anyway, if it's that cheap, F17 must be crap, right? Wrong. What we have here is a perfectly reasonable game released at a perfectly reasonable price. Hurrah.
? Rir or generosity ' ael for All this is most commendable, but what do you actually get for your hard-earned brass? Well, F17 is not going to win any prizes for originality, fitting as it does into the a well-established tradition of racing games such as Nigel Mansell's World Championship and Lotus Turbo Challenge. But it gives you the impression of belting round various circuits at a fair old speed as you fly past (or into) 20 trackside objects.
To begin at the beginning. An options screen enables you to choose between four cars each of which has different attributes. Red, for example, goes like a bomb in a straight line, whereas Yellow or Green might serve you better on more twisty circuits.
HSE You can en °P'lo jSaM have a bit of proctice, H take a single roce or qualify for the first track of your world Encountering the famous tunnels at Monte chompionship tour. C,rto “ * a~m ow~"' There ore 16 tracks to be raced, eoch of which has scenery and a background which is at least appropriate for the venue if not accurate; Monaco, for instance, has plenty of lamp posts and the famous tunnel section.
Put your foot down, you II fall over Playing the game comes as a rather nice surprise after a long loading time and although FI7 comes on two disks there is hardly any swapping to be done. The first thing you notice about the game is an inability to see very far into the distance and, because it's hard to anticipate bends, an in-game map would have been useful. However, the car is nicely animated ond in serious collisions it can swivel a smooth full circle. Maintenance at the pitlane during the game is, thankfully, no chore, you just pull in and gauge the speed of repairs. However, the pit
crew does give the strange impression that they're milking the That Mansell: I weel keel heem Team 17 ¦ £ 12.99 ¦ Needs 1 Meg ¦ New!
The really great thing about F17 Is that it isn't easy. On Rookie level - the easiest setting - it takes a great deal of practice to win points at each venue, though in time you can usually come first in each race. Even then, two other levels of difficulty, four different cars and the option to play in either normal or arcade modes give it a lasting challenge.
It's fair to point out that if FI7 had been released as a full-priced game, it would not have been rated so highly However at this price F17 is good gear. It takes an old concept and uses it to good effect. Let's hope it starts a trend.

The best bit of the game Is when tho spaceships hover around then pick up tho cows. It you can shoot the ship without hurting the cows, they shout, “Thank you".
Mention this game in the office and you receive a variety of responses. Some say it's completely awful, others claim it's damned good fun. Super Space Invaders is a peculiar affair - at limes incredibly slow, yet occasionally exciting. Just when you fancy a quick burst of shoot-em-up action, you find yourself firing bullets at four miles per hour. I found the exercise ultimately frustrating.

Hit Squad have re-released Grand Prix Circuit four years after its first appearance. Choose from three cars (Ferrari, Williams and McLaren) and race on any one of eight circuits from around the world. The cars ore quite tricky to control at first and you may find yourself motoring across the grass on occasions, but persevere (Nigel Mansell did) and victory will be sweet.
Grand Prix Circuit is almost identical to The Cycles, a reasonably entertaining motorbike racing game of no fixed address, simply replacing the bikes with cars. There is no wondrous sense of speed, _ nor are you likely to receive a bottle of champagne. Still, after a couple of bottles of brown ale you may feel the urge to cavort on some Brazilian grass.

081 -960 2255 NOVEMBER 1 993 GAME HINTS, TIPS AND HELP SPECIAL
TACTICS
• Always defend your base well with the best possible units.
Until defensive turrets become available leave units on guard,
never send them all out at the same time. Later on in the game,
a group of well- placed rocket turrets will leave you free to
concentrate on attacking.
(Always place rocket turrets on the edge of the base so they don’t interfere with future buildings.)
• Don't forget to attack! The enemy will often send a constant
stream of units at you but it is important to build up a
force and take a shot at the enemy base instead of just
defending your own. You can often find the enemy base by
following his units back there.
• On the later levels build a Starport. This is a very important
building to own since it enables you to buy units from The
Merchant’s Guild for anything up to half the price it costs to
build them! Keep checking for bargains, because the prices
change every time you look.
• Watch out for sneak attacks especially near the start of a
level.
Your first encounter with an enemy
• If you have a Heavy Factory or o Starport, either build or
order a few extra Harvesters. This way you only need to build
one Spice Refinery.
You should have about three Harvesters to maximise spice production. Don't forget to build Spice Silos as the spice can build up quickly.
• If you are short on credits, Sometimes you don’t even need to
build factories because the Starport will provide everything,
usually at a cheaper price. The down side, however, is that
the Starport can run out of stock, wfiich can be inconvenient.
9 A Repair Facility is almost essential once they become available.
Carry-alls can bring damaged units to them and take them back to the battlefield.
• If you capture enemy factories you can build their special
units such as The Deviator, The Devastator and The Sonic Tank
house will often be when they airlift troops near your base in
a Carry-all.
The troops can appear on any side of the base so make sure all sides are guarded. After that you can concentrate your defences on the side of your base which faces the enemy one.
• Your most important building is the Construction Yard (see
Attack Plan). On the later levels the enemy will sometimes try
to concentrate their attack on it and Death Hands are
frequently aimed at it. If it is destroyed you can no longer
build any new buildings, so guord it well.
If you are unlucky and lose it, order or build a Mobile Construction Facility and deploy it where the Construction Yard used to be.
• The Spice Refinery is another important building. If it is
destroyed when you are low on credits then you won't be able to
rebuild it because of the lack of money and you will not be
able to refine Spice to earn credits. In this dire situation,
your base will eventually be destroyed, unless you have almost
finished the level.
• On the last two levels you will be allowed to build a House
Palace.
This can only be built once you have a Starport. It is very expensive (999 Credits) but is extremely well armoured and is free to repair. It also gives you access to your House's Special Palace Ability (Fremen, Saboteur or Death Hand.)

Mark Bloomfield Colchester It turns out, after some Intensive Investigation try your roving reporter, that the bogus' codes were actually from the French version of the game, which was released earlier than the British version, and so made many trips over the channel before the offlcfaf release.

Little realising that they were providing a useful service for those criminally suspect people who had pirated the game horn the French version. Shameful.

Tel: 0666 504399 Available for IBM PC Compatibles and NOW for Commodore Amiga WIN TWO By now you should have ripped the Blitz Basic 2 Coverdisk off the front of this month’s issue and be holding it in your sweaty palm. What are you going to do with it?
You could play the superb version of Defender, or you might have a go at the gorefest which is zombie Apocalypse. On the other hand you may fancy winning yourself an Amiga 4000 030.
Acid Software, programmers of Blitz Basic, and Amiga Format are offering two of these fabulous machines to the lucky winners of this great programming competition.
All you have to do is write a game, or any other kind of program in Blitz Basic 2, using either the version on this month’s Coverdisk or the full package (available on page 151 at the special price of £49.95). OVER £2000 WORTH OF We don't care! We don't care whether it's a game or a serious program that is.
Blitz Basic 2 has more than proven its games writing abilities. But its power with the intuition libraries makes it more than a match for any other package when it comes to writing spreadsheets and databases too. So we're not telling you what to write, that's up to you.
We're not asking you to be original either. After all. Defender, Zombie Apocalypse and Skidmarks are hardly revolutionary in design terms. What they are though is highly-playable, highly-addic- tive classics. So if you choose to rip off Tempest or Mr. Do! We won't go getting upset about it. All we're asking you to do is write a game that makes us find it difficult to put our joysticks down. A tall order, to be sure. We are wizened, jaded and hardened games-playing professionals, after all!
But get cracking, read the tutorials in this and future issues of Amiga Format, and write yourself a program. If it's one of the best two we receive, you'll find yourself the lucky (and skilled) owner of a brand spanking new Amiga 4000 030.
The winner will also achieve fame and fortune as the star programmer of an Amiga Format Coverdisk program. We'll put your game (or a cut down demo) on a future issue's Coverdisk. The copyright of the game will remain with you, and so you will be able to collect all the shareware fees.
If you do as well as Bryan Bell did with his Charlie Chimp game, you'll be laughing all the way to the bank, and we'll all be looking on jealously... If you feel the need for the extra features of the full Blitz Basic 2 to help you create your programming masterpiece, you can buy this powerful package (worth £69.95) at the bargain price of just £49.95. Turn to page 151 now and find our more about this fabulous deal. O MIGA 4000s The more than slightly excellent Skidmarks allows up to four players to battle it out on the dirt track, bump bumpers and generally do driving things. The full
game will be commercially released soon, and will feature monster trucks and loads of other goodies.
If you haven't played our Coverdisk version yet. Get a friend and give it a go.
It's completely addictive and it was written completely in Blitz Basic 2.

Probably the greatest arcade shoot-em-up of all time. Defender had never been adequately re-created on a home computer until Mark Sibly got out his copy of Blitz Basic. If you haven't played it yet. It's on this month's Coverdisk.
PRIZES IIP FOR GRABS Zombie Apocalypse.
Written in Blitz Basic (but then what did you expect us to say?)
Zombs. As we’ve come to affectionately know it is a bit of a gorefest. In fact we have chosen to give it a 15 certificate on this month's disk label, just to be topical and cause controversy. This fast action packed shoot- em-up may be a little shallow, but it's loads a fun. And it really shows what you can achieve very easily with Blitz Basic 2.

But the Amiga is now a capable perlormer In many areas At creating gorgeous graphics, the Amiga is master, with programs like Deluxe Paint. Imagine and VistaPro. And Desktop publishing Is a doddle with PageStream and ProPage. With its ability to play sampled sounds and run a wide variety of music programs, the Amiga is also a powerful music machine. And Editing and titling videos Is another skill the Amiga Is adept at Because of these plentiful and wondrous abilities, we’ve put together a mega huge competition with prizes that represent the variety of operations the Amiga is used for. And
the different things you have to do to win the prizes means that everyone has a good chance of winning a prize they can really make the most of!
Each of the prize winners will have their prizes presented to them at the Future Entertainment Show on 11-14 November (But don't worry If you win and you're not there, your prize will be sent to you. But you would be mad to miss It.)
This year the FES promises to be even bigger and better, with 150 exhibitors covering around 20,000 square feet of the Olympia Exhibition Centre. More than 60.000 people are expected to attend the show, and tickets priced at £6.95 or £24 95 for a group of four, must be booked prior to the show.
A credit card hotline has been set up for the show, so to book your tickets call 051-356 5085 WIN! AN AMIGA 1200 Following the completion of Second Samurai, Vivid Image are about to embark on their most ambitious project to date. Hodja is to be a CD-only game, developed for every CD platform, and Vivid Image want you to design it for them!
This isn't just the Vivid Image boys being lazy - they've done the preliminary work on the game, like designing the characters in the story and the basic scenarios, and what you have to do is come up with a design for the game itself.
The story so far... Hodja is a Turkish folk hero, believed to hove lived around the 13th century. His name means 'the wisest of men' and he makes his living by telling funny stories, making predictions and giving advice to people. Because what he says is completely made up ond untrue, most of his pre- dictions go wrong, so he can't stay in one place too long.
A typical suburban family, whose name you must make up, hires Hodja for a birthday party.
What the parents don't realise is that Hodja practices real magic, but he's not very good ot it. He grants the child a wish, which he must ask for while blowing out the candles on his birthday cake. The lights go out, the boy blows out the candles, ond when the lights come bock on, the family is sitting in a strange, monster-filled fantasy world. One of Hodja's spells has backfired... again!
Here’s where you come in!
Design a game continuing on from the obove story. To help you, Bill Hajee (who animated the mice in the Disney film The Rescuers) has drown a rough of what the family look like - see the cartoon. He will also be working on the in-game graphics, so don't worry if you can't drawl Make your design in full storyboard-type form if you can, with detailed pictures describing each of the areas of the game, and some brief text to describe them. However, If your drawing is not so hot you can just sketch out the scenes, and write down descriptions of the levels.
The game design must be appealing to the whole family. Because a family is portrayed in the game, a real family should be able to control the characters. Up to four players may play the game simultaneously, with each playing the part of a family member. There should be an option to switch to anyone at any point in the game.
A family pel could be included, either a cot or a dog, which would either help or hinder the family's efforts. Alternatively, a baby monster could be befriended by one of the children during the adventure. Oh, and not forgetting, of course, Hodja's beloved donkey, Eshek.
Each member of the family should have different objects (which they were carrying prior to the casting of the spell), which they can use to get rid of the monsters they meet. Also, since the physical attributes of the chorocters vary, so must their abilities.
To avoid patronising the characters, you should introduce humour ond role-reversal. For instance, the father may be terrified of snakes, while the mother may find them cute. Remember that Hodja is to be for CD-based machines only, so there ore no limitations for the game's size and scope. Think of it as an interactive minimovie, but steer clear of the all graphics and no gameplay type of game. Try to make it easy to play ond combine adventure with arcade sequences and puzzles. Above all, have fun I Sand your entries in by 8 October 1993 to: Write a Vivid Game Competition. Amiga Format,

And now Maff Evans uncovers the perfect paint package to make use of it... MAIN PICTURE: This composite image shows how the tools in Brilliance can give an enormous range of effects, working in anything from 256 to 260,000 colours!
Packages. This is because there are no pull-down menus lo search through when you need an option. Instead, each area of the program has its own dedicated control panel that can Ik- called up from the main menu, so all the options and tools you need for one job are in one place.
This makes a refreshing change and makes the whole thing a lot easier to learn.
In fact - I never thought I'd say this! - it makes even Deluxe Paint look cumbersome.
Anyway, enough of the cosmetics, what of the features?
Working in Brilliance falls into three main areas - painting, brush manipulation and animation - so let's take 'em in turn.
Painting The paint tools are organised extremely sensibly. Instead of having separate menu items for empty or filled shapes, both are on the same button. If you want to draw a filled rectangle instead of an empty one.
Just click twice on the rectangle gadget.
If you want to access options linked with a tool, you just click on its icon with the right-hand button to call up a special control panel. Very easy. This means you can get straight in. Rather than having to learn loads of irons before you start.
As well as painting with straight colours, there are a number of special paint modes that you can access. These include all the usual smear, smooth and cycle effects along with a few specialities.
THERE ARE TWO things .ha. have already made the Amiga 1200 and ,44000 a success. The firs, is .he fad that .hey are top-nolch. Slale-of-lhe-an 32-bit machines, and the other is .he AGA chip sei. Who could resis. .he 16-million colour palette? No. Me. That's for sure.
The program that most people though, would be best placed to make use of the new graphics capabilities teas .he AGA version of Deluxe Paint. After all. I. has been .he favoured paint program for most situations for quite some time. However, when came out a big problem cropped up.
Sure, all the tools are there, but Dpaint AGA is so slow. Now Digital Creations (.he brains behind the highly acclaimed DCTV system) have pitched their attempt into the AGA paint market with Brilliance.
The Brilliance package consists of not one bu. Two programs: Brilliance and TrueBrilliancr. The firs, is what's termed a register-based program, which means that it works in the normal Amiga colour modes (two to 256). TrueBrilliance is used for manipulating HAM images and can also handle 24-bit images in IIA.M mode.
Splitting the package into two separate parts means that none of the features have to Im- scrimped on to make everything fit.
If you need to use special HAM tools, then you use the HAM-specific program rather than making do with inappropriate tools designed for fewer colours.
Whichever version of the program you use. Vou really need 4Mb or more of RAM to make the most of it. It will run in two.
But you are rather limited as to what size of file you can play with, especially in HAM-6 mode. Keep this in mind when getting into graphics on your AGA machine: all those colours need a lot of memory!
The appearance ol Brilliance makes a move away from the usual Dpaint looka- likes. Being more akin to professional art st J CtJ±r_i Look into the glass orb Using one of the sample pictures included with the package, here is a do-it-yourself example of how Brilliance s excellent gradient fills and Transparency mode work in practice.
Iload up the Lagoon picture and go into the Edit Palette screen. Set up a spread of shades of grey over a range of about 32 colours, then transfer the spread into the range requester.
2 Select the filled ellipse tool, enter the brush mode panel and choose the tlighlight option. Now open the Transparency window and make sure it will act on RGB values at about 50%.
3 Now just draw a circle by holding the left button and dragging the mouse with the Ctrl key held down (this constrains the ellipse to a circle). And that's it! A simple way of drawing glass spheres on a picture.
The Tint function works a lot better than its Dl’ninl counterpart (it's available- even when using filled shapes, rather than just in freehand or airbrush modes), the Brighten and Darken functions work to a variable amount (specified by moving a slider) and Average Smear (equivalent to Dl’ninl s Blend) works much more smoothly, blending colours in sweeps rather than spurts as Dl'ninl AGA does.
Along with the impressive drawing functions. Brilliance also boasts a wide range of gradient fills for drawing solid shapes. The colour gradients are defined in a verv flexible editor. Not only can you simply drag the pointer across the window to enter complete ranges from the palette, you can also enter double-markers for abrupt changes in gradients, have different gradients for each drawing screen and set the program to calculate inbetween shades so that your fills are as smooth as possible.
The fill types on oiler are horizontal, vertical and angled gradients, highlight fills, spherical fills and radials (which arc concentric rings that always emanate from the centre point). These can all be set to 'fit' in to an awkward shape, so that the gradient flows smoothly right across an area. Using these fills, you can create very solid-looking objects - especially when you use a lot of shades in a colour range.
Unfortunately, there isn't a rub- through function (which would help you to blend another image into your painting, giving an effect like painting on glass) but there is another method which can be used to similar effect.
Any drawing inode in Brilliance can be applied using the Transparency function.
This causes the image being drawn (whether it's a filled shape, a freehand line or a custom brush) to appear translucent.
With careful use. This can be evert bit as effective as rub-lhrough. Bv mapping a map of llie world onto a sphere, picking ii up as a brush and stamping it down on another picture using Transparency, I managed to create a very effective glass globe effect in next to no time.
Quite a few packages have many of these effects, but Brilliance has an edge due to the sheer speed with which it carries them out. Gradient fills are calculated and drawn in a few seconds, no matter how mam colours you use. No longer do we have to start a fill then go off and have a cup of tea while the Amiga works it out.
Brush manipulation Picking up and using finishes in BriUiancf works in a very similar way to Dl'ninl. You select the brush-cut option, draw around the area you want to cut and that's it.
Brilliance goes a bit further than that, though. You can then use the Transparency mode to get a rub-through effect, as described above, as well as go through all the usual bending and twisting effects or use it for four types of pattern fill: tile patterns, horizontal stretch-fitting, shape contours and perspective.
There is a range of functions for fine- tuning the control of brushes either when picking them up or using them: Auto Background looks at the colours in the four corners of a brush and sets that as the transparent background. Tile Gut removes the right and bottom lines of a brush (so Brilliance has an edge due to the sheer speed with which it carries operations out. No longer do we have to start a fill then go off and make a cup of tea while the Amiga works it out...* that pasting brushes next to each other doesn’t cause an overlap) and Align enables you to reposition a finish relative to its
original screen position (useful for creating smooth pattern fills).
You can also remap the colours in a brush, copy its palette to the main screen palette or switch the position of the brush's handle.
One particularly useful option is the ability to store eight brushes. This really comes into play when 'morphing’ brushes.
Bv going to the Animbrush panel, setting the number of frames and then choosing which of the two brushes you want to morph together, you can create transformations from one brush to another.
The results of morphing van . Depending 011 the number of colours in the palette and the amount of antialias used, but 011 the whole the effect is very good.
Alongside the eight brush storage 'wells', there is a function for storing and retrieving brushes from the Amiga's clipboard. So that you can transfer brushes between Brilliance and TmeBrilliance without having to save them to disk.
The control over Animbrushes is remarkable. Not only can you set the number of frames to pick up and the direction to use. You can actually force an auim- hrush to fit into an animation of different Continued overleaf 1*" DESCRIPTION Paint and animation packagi The on-line help facility is on all the time and tells you what the button or tool under the pointer is for.
Length automatically. Just set the number of frames in the Fit section and Brilliance will automatically add or delete frames in the Animbrush to keep the animation as smooth as possible. No more messing around pasting double-copies of frames and [licking the brush up again to get the Animbrush to the right length. Excellent!
Animation Most of the animation options in Brilliance are controlled using the Tween page. This acts similarly to Dbainl's Move page, with figures being entered to make a brush move up. Down, in or out of the screen or rotate around three axes, linlhancc enables you to create a path by setting a start and end point or by defining how far a brush should move.
F. xtra effects, such as ease in and out, trails and fades can
also be done from here, as can perspective effects. To keep
things simple, Brilliance uses the values from the Tween page
for all the program's perspective drawing functions, so you
only have to enter one set of values.
If you don't like the sound of this numbers lark, don’t worry. You can set up animations by stamping the brush down on the screen and copying the information into the Tween page. All you have to do is click on the Adjust button and the panel is replaced by a requester showing the data from the Tween page and some controls.
You just select the data you want to edit, click on the screen, drag the mouse and the data will be transferred automatically.
If you want to create cartoon animation. With animated figures moving across a background rather than static shapes spinning and sliding across the screen, you can use Animbrushes in conjunction with the Tween page. This enables you to set paths for your characters without having to stamp down each frame in an Animbrush separately (which can tie difficult, especially since Brilliance doesn’t have a light-table feature).
Digital Creations All good retailers PRICE £195 RRP or less ¦ :1 j j :f V1 Control over playing back and editing animations is provided in the Animation page, which is laid out like a video editor.
Here you can choose the length of an Control over playing and editing animations is provided in the animation page, which looks like a video editor. Finding a particular frame is just a matter of moving a slider - it really is that easy. * animation, cut out or add sections, set the speed of playback and determine the way the animation will be played (forwards, backwards, looped or 'ping-ponged' back and forth). Finding a particular frame in an animation is just a matter of moving the slider - it really is that simple. In fact, anyone who has a video will be able to use it.
The magnify mode zooms right in so that you can see individual pixels. The degree of zoom in or out can be controlled with the buttons on the bar at the left of the magnify window.
As you've probably worked out for yourself. Brilliance is loaded with useful drawing and animation features, but it's not just the sheer number of tools on offer that impresses. Two other big points arise.
First, the program is very easy to use.
Thanks to its intuitive, flexible and well thought-out panel system. You just call up the panels you need and put them away when you've finished with (hem. It’s great being able to have the colour palette, the range requester and the fill-type screen open and editable at the same time.
The second major factor is Brilliance's speed. Even in HAM-8 mode, everything zips along beautifully quickly.
You could put Brilliance up against any of the other art packages in its price range and on features alone it would easily hold its own. But with all three factors together (tools, ease of use and speed), you're unlikely to find anything as impressive on any machine. At getting on for 200 quid it is hardly cheap, but when you consider what you get it looks great value. 'S VERDICT ¦¦ Can handle anything Dpaint ACA can do but much, much quicker.
At nearly £200 it may seem expensive, but it's worth it. Probably the best paint package at the price on any type of computer.

Canon CANON BJ-230 Way back in issue 48, canon scored two hits with the Canon BJ-200 and BJ-10SX printers. Can they possibly repeat that performance with the new BJ-230?
Richard Baguley squirts ink around the office to find out... Mosl software (such as 1‘ml‘ogr and Pngeslream) enables you to ‘turn' the page in memory, printing landscape pages on a printer that can only handle portrait.
However, some programs can't handle this. So, il you want to print more rows of figures than you can fit on the width of an A4 page, this printer could Ik- useful.
Eighty sheets of paper can Ik- held in the sheet feeder, which automatically loads the paper as required, ( -anon claim a print speed of three pages per minute, but you would only approach this figure if you were working in high speed mode on a page containing only text. Add any graphics or Compugraphic fonts to the document, and things get significantly slower. For instance, the image shown on this page (done through the AilPro PrinlPrefs stiver) look around three minutes to print.
Bubblejet printer Phoenix 0532 350091 PRICE £379.99 This stunning printout was produced on the Canon BJ-230 from a HAM 8 original using the PrcfPrinter saver of Art Department Professional 2.3. IF YOU'VE BEEN living under , rock for I lie Iasi few wars, you | robahlv will never have beard of inkjet priming, and the words ('.anon BJ-10 will prohahh mean ver little to you. However, it you have been reading the pages of Amiga Format in your bijou under-rock residence, von will no doubt Ix* aware that (.anon have recently released a slew of new inkjet printers, such as the BJ-10SX and the BJ-
20(1. The latest to join C-anon’s happv family is the BJ-230. A wide carriage version of tlu* Amiga Format (iold-winning BJ-200 Inkjet printers operate in a radically different way to the conventional dot matrix printers which work by striking the paper through an inky ribbon, leaving some ink behind on the page. Inkjet printers work by heating a small amount of ink in a very thin nozzle. This ink then squirts out on to the paper, producing the dots on the | apcr. This hits the Ix-nefit of being extremely quiet, although it can lx- rather slow. The concept of inkjet printing was allegedly
discovered when a C-anon research engineer is said to have touched a syringe filled with ink with a soldering iron, and the ink squirted across the room.
The BJ-230 is fundamentally much the same printer as the BJ-200. Hut it’s been extended to enable it to cope with landscape A4 paper. This won’t he- important for most people, hut if you work heavily with spreadsheets, it could lx- a bonus.
The BJ-230 has three print modes - High speed, high quality or super high quality. -As you’d expect, the latter gives you the best image quality, but there is a price to pay in that your ink cartridges get used up extremely quickly. Phoenix supply a driver for this printer, and it also works fine with the BJ-10SX driver included with Workbench 3.
The print quality is as excellent as the other Canon models, with the same solid blacks and excellent range of tones. Add a print optimise! Program (such as TurboPrint on last month's Coverdisk). And images are even better. The B|-230 costs kbit more than the BJ-200, so unless you really need the extra width, go for the cheaper model. O VERDICT
* Although it's more expensive than the BJ- 200, the BJ-230 has
the advantage of a wide carriage facility, which could be very
useful for people who need printouts of spreadsheets. " A 112
page manual gives you all the technical info you'll need.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • i With built-in Epson emulation, it's just a question of plug in and go.

£75 Jeff Lavin, The Puzzle Factory Richard Baguley decides
it's time to get back reason why you couldn't use Origins for
keep- to his roots, so he tries it with a new ancestor- m,
« • of a *amiiy»». »y. Pig.cn*. tracing program from The
Puzzle Factory.

• ••• r «thrr; Notlier: JflUi SIS:
• !)» frettHsI Among the many reporting options is one to display
a family group, which gives you basic details of both the
parents and the children.
MANY PEOPLE ARE imrigucd by the- idea of being able 10 trace their family line. It's interesting lo see how far back yon can go. And what distinguished people vou may be distantly related to.
Given that everybody has (more or less) two parents, once you go back several generations you're dealing with an awful lot ol people. Go as far back as your fifth generation, and you have 127 people lo deal with, and these are only your direct relations. Add to this any further branches of vottr family tree (such as uncles and cousins) and vou can see how using a computer can be useful to keep track of the swelling ranks of vottr family.
The most widely used genealogy program on the Amiga is A-Onir, which is now up to version 4. There isn't much difference between Origins and A-Ornr in the method ol inputting data, although this is probably more to do with established standards - records being be- kept on cards than any copying between the programs.
However. Origins' reports are more flexible and process faster, although an option to design your own reports would have been useful. A-Ornr is written in GFA basic and so its slower speed isn't a surprise. Origins also supports the Tins Tafel specification, which is designed to give a small resume of your family tree. This ran be uploaded to a Bulletin Board so that others can scan it. Or add information to your database.
Both A-Ornr and Origins also support the GKXGOM standard, which is designed to allow vou to move information between programs running on different machines.
Both programs can also attach Iff images to records, so you could have a scanned photograph of your subject or an image from a video attached to each record.
Two Arexx interfaces are also included in Origins. One is designed for controlling an editor such as Cygnus Ed or litrbolrxl. Which are more powerful than the built-in editor. Ihe other Arexx interface allows you to control Origins itself, and to import or export data from this. It might not sound panic ularly useful, but you could use it lo connect the program to a Bulletin Board system, allowing you or others to read data or load data into your database from a remote location. If you're a good Arexx programmer, you could even use it to generate vottr own reports, or import the data into a
DTP program to produce quality ptim-oms of the data.
Origins is faster than A-Ornr. But it’s also more expensive. If vou just want the basic data storage and retrieval functions.
A-One will suit vou line, but if vou want to expand from this into more complicated areas such as moving data between programs. Origins is well worthwhile. O VERDICT_ “ Very similar to its nearest rival A-Cene, but Origins has many more features and so quite reasonably has a higher price. This is a powerful, flexible genealogy program. ** Searching through large databases is done very rapidly.
MANUAL ••• Fairly well written, although a bit dense in places, with plenty of tips.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • Complex, but it manages large amounts of data well.
Built-in reports good, but option to do your own would be better.
VALUE • • • More expensive, but more flexible than its rival A-Gene.

Jolyon Ralph wonders whether its speed alone is sufficient to kill off the wily, adaptable old favourite, Devpac... Full 68000-family assembler Helios 0623 554828 HERE'S A BRAND spanking new 680x0 assembler, supporting all the
family: the 68000. 68010. 68020. 68030. 68040.
68881, 68882, 68851 and also the (topper processors. It comes on three disks with a 128-page manual packed with information.
It does not pretend to be a full development package. All you get for your money is the assembler: you will have to lind vottr own text editor (although there are several good Public Domain editors available and if you want help debugging vottr code a debugger monitor program will come in handy).
. larro68 voices proud I toasts - it claims to be "the ultimate Amiga assembler" and that " lacni6S is faster than all other Amiga multi-pass assemblers".
What that means in practice is that Macrn68 is the second fastest assembler available on the Amiga. The fastest assembler is still ArgAsm, published bv Argonaut Software (famous for the early Amiga 3D classic StarC-tidtr, and more recently for the Super Nintendo game SlarWing).
ArgAsm is unique because it is a single- pass assembler: rather than scanning the source code twice, it onlv needs to scan the source once, resulting in phenomenal assembly speed. Unfortunately Argonaut have long since abandoned AtgAsm and thev have no update plans.
Macm( 8 has one feature that is considerably in its favour when compiling programs with large numbers of include files. Tike Devpac 3 it can pre-assemble these for faster assembly, but unlike Devpac these can Ik- held resident in RAM to speed up subsequent assemblies.
The assembler in action. Although aesthetics aren't important when assembling, we thought you'd like to see how fast it is... . larro68 has taken the brave step, unlike other Amiga assemblers, of using the new- stvle Motorola syntax. Introduced to set a standard approach for instruction syntax with the newer processors, this changes the form of many instructions. For example: LEA 32(a0),al ,-old syntax Ik-i inies LEA (32,a0),al ;new syntax JSR LVOWaitTOF(a6) ;old syntax becomes JSR ( LVOWaitTOF,a6) .-new syntax Although it s a sensible idea, and if you're new to tin- language the new syntax
may seem easier, if you're an experienced 68000 hacker, you'll probably hate it More importantly, almost all example source published uses the old syntax, though existing source code can Ik- converted to the new syntax with an included utility.
Other points in Macro68s favour include its Arexx handling, which is second to none. If you want to set up your own assembly environment, based around (Agnus i.d, lor example, then Alacro68 can control and be controlled lar easier than either ArgAsm or Dnpac can.
Unfair as it mav seem. Macro68 has to be compared to Devpac for value, and in my opinion you just don't get your money's worth with Mucro68. The extra features don't outweigh the bonuses that IliSoft offer bv bundling not only a good editor but also a monitor with Dnpac.
If you already have S. IS (.'and you like the editor and debugger you already use.
Then Marra68 is worth a look. If you are starting with assembler, go for Devpar J instead. Seasoned Devpac Argasm veterans, make your own mind up.
New Macro68 is certainly faster than mv old Dnpac. Bin its inability to handle my existing source without alterations is a major problem. Perhaps I'm missing something... or perhaps the authors are. 'If £130 Available now The fastest 680x0 assembler. Only ArgAsm (68000 only) is faster.
MANUAL •• Superb and have been marked higher but it lacks an index.
ACCESSIBILTY • • • Not at all easy for beginners to get to grips with.
FEATURES ••••• Every feature you could want from an assembler and more.
VALUE ••• Expensive. It does not compete with Devpac on price.
VERDICT ~ For experienced assembler users only, and then only if you have good reason to be unhappy with your current assembler, or feel a serious need for this one's speed.

PC emulator WHEN YOU HAVE a ! c in .! • office or at school and yon want to take your work home with you to your Amiga, w hat do you dor In less you are incredibly wealthy, you will not have the necessary funds or space for a PC', and an Amiga - so what's to be doner Well, the favourite option for the Amiga owner about town these days seems to be some kind of PC emulator.
The emulator will convert your Amiga into a PC for the duration of its operation, enabling you to read and write PC. Disks and run PC software.
The trouble with most emulators is that they are hardware-based and therefore can cost almost as much as a new PC.
Not to mention being specific to a particular model of Amiga. 1‘CTask. By contrast, is a software emulation. This means that there is no hardware to be added and no fussing with trapdoor slots and CPU jumpers; all this also makes it substantially cheaper than the competition.
There are problems with software emulators, though. They are generally slower and have a lower compatibility rate than their hardware counterparts. I'C.Tiisli is certainly slower than a dedicated hardware emulator, but not cripplingly so.
If you can afford the memory overhead it works a great deal quicker when Just what you need, a halfway decent PC emulator to run nice fractal programs on your Amiga-cum-PC.
The start-up screen allows you to select emulation mode, memory usage and assign or create logical PC disks.
K-lili Cjifis ibinu.
Ill! IdiWM ntnni Uiidlddtr.
This is version I.13 Serioll:1953b Quasar Distribution isslj_ rim CMItix D MmvardHiol you install the software in the RAM disk. It does multitask quite effectively, but you will notice the drain on your CPU speed when ‘('Task is running.
The emulation covers a variety of PC display drivers, including CGA. EGA and VGA, as well as a generic mono mode.
Display preferences are chosen from the start-up screen, as are drive assigns and memory usage.
I’( Fmk is restricted to a standard 70-1K emulation, and this docs limit the amount of software that will run on it. Microsoft's Windows GUI is right out of the question, as are quite a lot of graphics-based programs. But the old standard word- processors and spreadsheets should work fine, as will a number of P('. Games.
I lard disk support is controlled through the start-up options. In addition to being able to choose a hard disk partition to work as a PC device, there is also the rather cunning option of creating a fiie 011 an AmigaDOS partition that acts as a P( i device. I hese files are created by I’CTnsk and can then l e formatted from MS-DOS and used as either a logical C: or
I) : MS-DOS drive.
This cunningness is taken a bit further bv having support for AmigaDOS to access these PC devices directly. If you have a PC disk transfer system such as MessydoS or CrossDm (the latter is included with Workbench 3) then a device can be mounted enabling you to get at the PC files stored in the hard-disk file. This is potentially very Useful for transferring information between the two different systems. Particularly il you don't have an A4000 with a high-densitv disk drive.
I’CTnsk isn't a replacement for a PC.
But it is capable ol running a minimal PC wordpro' and undertaking menial file operations. Bear in mind that the price does not include a version ol MS-DOS.

* * Reasonably cheap, especially compared to a hardware emulator,
and with programs that need very little RAM, surprisingly
effective, if a little slow. Could easily handle low workload
tasks. ** SPEED • MS-DOS applications are tediously slow, which
is only lo be expected.
MANUAL •• Brief, gives all the techinfo needed.
Novices may find it confusing.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • Once you've got it set up, it's a real doddle to use.
Good emulation of CGA, EGA & VGA, held back by memory limits.
VALUE ••• Worth it if you desperately need to run PC-type utilities on your Amiga.

60 Stackable AccuTrans If you want to convert your 3D
ray-traced objects from one format to another, then AccuTrans
3D could be the answer. Richard Baguley puts the object
converter program through its paces... RAY-TRACINC PROGRAMS
such as Imagine 2 and Rea! 3D Version 2 arc capable of
producing Manning results, and provide a great number of
powerful tools lor producing your 3D models.
Unfortunately, the different programs have different ways of saving files, and these aren't interchangeable. This is where a program such as AccuTrans 3D comes in.
Ttiis program can lake 3D models produced by any one of five different programs, and save them out into any other format. So. For instance, you could take all your old Sculpt-Animate 41) models and convert them for use in Imagine 2.
When you're converting, you never actually see the object. Instead, you're presented with a button-strewn control panel, where you set the various aspects of the conversion. You are given an impressive degree of control over the process, including the abilitv to rescale objects, split objects into their various parts and save these individually.
It’s pretty obvious that this program is aimed mainly at users of CAD programs such as AutoCad and X-CAD. And for them this program could be extremely useful, as they could produce proper rav-traced images of the objects or buildings they have built. It's also useful for other users.
Bui the list of supported formats could do with being extended to include some of the more obscure programs which si ill pop up occasionallv (such as Draw 41) and Aladdin III).
The obvious competition lor ibis program is 1‘ixrl 31) hijcssional which sup- poris one more format (31) Professional).
And also has an Arcxx pint, making automating processes much easier.
Pixel 3D Professional is slightly faster, taking 30 seconds io load a typical DXF file, as against 35 seconds lor AccuTrans
31) . Pixel 31) costs around £150. And Accu Trans 3D should cost
you around liiO, including shipping rosls. Pixel 1I) is defi
nitely the more powerful program, with the ability to
manipulate the objects you've loaded in a variety of wavs,
but if all vou want is to convert objects from one format to
another. AccuTrans 11) is definitclv worth considering.
FORMAT CHECK AccuTrans can cope with 3D objects in the following formats: DXF - A standard for 3D models produced by CAD programs such as XCAD or AutoCad.
Imagine - Produced by Impulse's Imagine and Turbo Silver.
Lightwave - Produced by the Lightwave 3D ray-tracing program bundled with the Video Toaster.
Video Scape - Produced by the old but widely used 3D program Videoscape 3D.
Sculpt 4D - Produced by Sculpt-Animate 40, once the best ray tracing program, but not recently updated.

secrei Swiss bank accouni - everji««lv who uses a com- puler
nnisl have lost a highly important file at some time in their
life.
At such times, all Amiga cognoscenti reach for their Workbench disks, litul the ama ing DiskDoclor program... and delete it. The sail reality is that (ximtnodore's DiskDoctm is a quack and a sawbones - when it comes to the health of your important disks, it's best to go private.
Choosing between the applicants for the position ol saviour ol all your data is not an easv task. There are several contenders. From the I’D delights of DokSalvr and TixDisk. To commercial offerings such as Disk Mrrhauirand AmiBack. But the most popular practitioner has always been Quatlrrhark Toils. In spile of the failings ol earlier versions it has remained the most popular choice by virtue of being the most successful at recovering errant data blocks.
This latest version differs quite considerably from its ancestors in terms ol lavotit.
QBTnils now defaults to a Workbench window. With a choice of four buttons and a device list to select the disk to be examined. Once a disk is selec ted, you can then choose what to do with it. This breaks down into four sections: Repair. Recover.
Optimize and F.dit. Repairing is for disks which have logical errors on them - invalid QuarterBack TOOLS PE LUXE Nick veitch investigates the latest version of the disk and data repair and recovery program.
»n« WwmCwutiM-lnlBlia bitmaps, bad checksums, knackered headers - the sorts of things which occasionallv happen when vour Amiga decides to guru during a disk operation. Recover is useful for reconstructing files which have been accidentally or otherwise deleted.
Optimizing a disk is a process where all the files are defragmented. As disks arc- used and the files on them are deleted, renamed, and updated, the blocks that make up the data c an no longer be stored in one continuous stream of adjacent sectors on the disk. When ibis happens it lakes the Amiga longer to access the data, as it is constantly moving the heads backwards and forwards over the disk to locate all the blocks. Optimization straightens out all the files, making for faster access times.
The onlv reallv new part is the Edit function, a Xniiui rstvie hex editor which enables you to edit individual blocks of data by band. Ibis can be quite ttselul indeed, but onlv il you know what vou art- doing. A full explanation of the intricacies ol disk structures is a bit bevond the scope of the accompany ing manual.
Rather unfortunately for Qiiarlerback Toils, and more importantlv. Unfortunately for me. The latest version ol the Repair program seems to have a tew bugs in it. When presented with (as far as I know) a pet - fectlv functioning disk during tests, it became convinced that it bad a number of problems. I bis wouldn't have been so bad.
Except that il then went through three recoverable alerts before finally gin ning in the middle ol attempting to repair these phantom ailments. As a result I fear my disk will never be the same again.
Even more unfortunately mi all patties concerned. I then tried to optimize a disk. After the initial scan, the program (correctly) informed me that tin- disk was
0. 00% fragmented. All well and good, bill it then offered me the
chance to proceed.
Foolishly. I thought the software might stop short ol going through a long and tedious process lo optimize a disk which was already as optimized as it was ever going to gel. Not onlv did (hiaitnhark Toils go through said lengths and tedious process. But il bad the cheek to tell me alter five minutes that the operation bad failed and that I may have lost some files. The faults were fixed and files recovered using the old version of (IHToih. Progress, eh?
The Dr l.uxr tag to Ounrtnbnck Toils applies to all the extra bits that come on the disk, which include a few gems such as hunUir. A useful program, especially since AmigaDOS's programmers didn't include a Find command. Loraini initiates a quite complicated search string and then traces all the occurrences, giving lull pathnames, lilt- size and the date the file was created.
Also included is Syslnn Mum which trans- lets types ol file, fonts, libraries and devices from one disk to the other without having to use the Shell.
Overall the upgrade makes the program a bit more Amiga-friendly, and easier to use. But. Il seems, at the expense ol being an efficient recovers system. Save money and stick to the old version. O VERDICT_
* ft has lots of new bits but the important parts of the program
simply don't work properly.
Seventy quid for a piece of software that exhibits flaws such as these is asking a bit too much. * Well produced 86-page manual details every function.
ACCESSIBILTY • • Now in improved Workbench- friendly version, it is easier to use.
It's got them all - it's just a shame they don't work some of the time.

0989 750260 TECH SUPPORT 0989 750337 THIS ONE HAS come a long
way since we reviewed Caligmi2 in May 1992.
Octree's concentration on a Brimtlciisl version lias always left the 'consumer' version lagging behind other 31) packages, but this new version has some fine abilities in addition to its famously simple interface, not least its amazing render speed.
No longer can you say of (Migtiri that it's all mouth and no trousers - a superh front end. But no real performance in the vital areas of modelling or rendering.
('.nligari24 now has much more impressive goodies, not least among them the facts that it now supports the AGA screen modes for A1200 and A100 owners, and works in only 2Mb of RAM.
ABOVE: Free Form Deformation (FFD) was used for the TV screen, the toaster and the knife. The toaster here was twisted by selecting one end of its bounding box and rotating it around the main horizontal axis.
As ever, the thing that dominates your impression of (Uiligari is the magical interlace. After six or seven years, it is still bv far the best on anv graphics program.
Always one sandwich short of a picnic in the past, Caligari's lunchbox now seems to be filled with an appetising array of goodies. Brian Larkman tries the taste of the update.
All the features are controlled by a series of push-button toolboxes at the bottom of the screen. These are a mix of icons and word-labels leaving the user in no doubt of the function of each.
The real power, however, lies in the intuitive way that objects and scenes are moved, rotated and transformed: in full
111) perspective, in a three-quarter view, in real time, using
just the mouse. Easy! The movement is so smooth that it
really feels as though the mouse is the object.
Smooth movement can lie had bv ail because (jiligiiri uses a version of the bounding box' system. Beyond a certain threshold, complex objects are moved in the form ol the smallest rectangular box that will contain the objects - the bounding box. Since only a simple SI) rectangle is actually being moved in real time, changes to the scene are smooth and easy to perform, with the full scene redrawing as soon tts the mouse button is released.
This sort of simplicity has now been extended into the whole modelling interlace so that lines, faces and parts of objects can lx’ rotated, scaled and moved just as easily as complete objects and scenes, making detailed editing easy.
Other editing tools are added in this version so that objects can be sliced and faces extruded simply, though complex extrusions and lathe operations 011 complete objects are still quite rudimentary .
Callgari24 allows Images to be rendered and saved In 32-Mt, the extra eight bits being used for degrees of transparency.
That Is especially useful if the Image Is to be gen- locked with live video, because the live video can show through the transparent objects.
Only a few display boards, such as the ACS Harlequin, can handle the extra 8-bit Alpha channel. Some programs claim to use an Alpha channel - ADPro from ASDG and OpalPalnt from Centaur - but this Is only a pseudo-Alpha channel In software.
Though the concept Is similar - and very useful
- only a 32-bit board can give a true real-time hardware Alpha
channel.
USING THE ALPHA CHANNEL Iwhat we're going to do here is simulate the effect of using transparent Alpha channel objects with live video showing through them. Instead of live video, though, we're going to be using the 24-bit background view pictured here.
This static image could quite easily be replaced with live video genlocked in.
2 The rendered image produces a black area where the background is to appear. All transparent objects (the glass vase for example) are rendered with an extra eight bits (256 shades of grey) in addition to the 24-bit colour used for the rest of the picture. This provides information for the degrees of tinting (transparency) to use for the live video behind these areas.
The most exciting modelling feature added is free Form Deformation (FFD).
This process extends the principle of the hounding box so that a rectangular or cylindrical lattice 'bounding' an object can l e deformed easily in real time. This deformation is then transfcred to the full object before it is redrawn.
For greater precision, the box can be subdivided as many times as you like. Any number of crossing points on the grid, or even whole faces, can be selected and deformed with ease. For example, the TV' screen in the main illustration was 'bulged' by dragging the centre point of one side of its Ixmnding box. The screen bulged to follow the bounding box.
This is one of those functions that sounds complicated when you try to explain it in words but is dead simple in practice. It's brilliant. Using FFD, complex organic shapes are easy and animated distortions like the famous warping Nova ad should be within the reach of all. As usual however, animated FFD distortions are only possible on the hugely expensive llmailrasl version. Will Octree never learn?
Animation in general is crude in (UUigpri, but as a consolation, it's very' easy to set up. Only 'key-frame' animation is available, so any object or hierarchical sttb- objcct can be moved, rotated or scaled over a series of frames.
Paths can be straight vectors or spline curves, but acceleration and deceleration, object heading (along a curved path), and other sophisticated effects have to be created manually within the key frames or produced using scripts. As for morphing, waves, directed forces, collision detection or particle animation, just forget it.
Although types of animation available are very limited, synchronisation of the various objects and subobjects is made much easier by the new Time F.ditor. Using hori- ¦ 11 I 1*1 fl • 3 The final image shows how the background blends into the rendered foreground allowing the sky and mountains to show through the glass vase in a realistic way. Because 256 greyscales are used, the blend can be very subtle indeed and the whole effect works particularly well when the background is live video rather than a static picture.
Rendering is almost unchanged from ('¦alignri2 except for the ability to render to most makes of frame-bulfer in 24-bit or .‘12- bit. (jtligati is not a ray-tracer, which means that it uses a whole series of tricks to produce photo-realistic images, including environment maps to give convincing reflections and shadow volume algorithms for shadows.
Although rendering is wickedly fast using these scan-line techniques, they assume that the user has a greater understanding of the III) model and shading methods than is needed for ray-tracing. In effect, you need to do lots more experiments to get things right, a process which is bugged by the lack of detailed tutorials.
True realism is also limited by the lack ol flashy effects like bump maps, soft shadows. Depth of field and motion blur, but these would kill the last rendering times.
To make up for this. Cnlignn2‘l allows images to be rendered and saved using .'12 bits of data.
The extra eight bits on top of the normal 2Tbit image are used to store degrees of transparency, especially useful il the image is to lx- genlocked with live video, allowing transparent objects to show the live video through them.
Rendering is still a bit of a disappointment. Lacking the sophistication and simplicity of ray-tracing, lint then this program is built for speed, not realism.
To sum up, modelling in ('.aligan is greatly improved by the Free Form Deformation system, but still lags behind Imagine and RealJI) for custom-built tools for special building jobs. Despite the new Time F.ditor. animation is now really quite pathetic compared to other packages - even the old Sculfil II), which had morphing at least six years ago.
Rendering is almost unchanged except for the obvious improvements of 2Tbit rendering, and it is still amazingly fast. For some jolts, this speed, coupled with the brilliant interface, make ('.aligan2-t the Ix-st system to use - just so long as vou don’t expect ii to come through with too much in the trouser department. O Still by far the fastest 3D Tenderer you can buy, but not a ray-tracer.
Reasonable description of functions but very few tutorials.
ACCESSIBILTY • • • • • Beautiful, well laid-out control panels. The one to emulate.
FEATURES •••• Good, but still not as good as the competition - but FFD is brilliant.
VALUE ••• With animated FFD it would be good. Without, it's reasonable.
VERDICT_
* This latest version gives the fastest 3D rendering around, is
ridiculously easy to use and the Free Form Deformation feature
is excellent. It has its faults, but if you need speed, this is
the one. " * ft Book SHELF Three new additions to the enormous

COMPUTERS AND CHAOS FOR All AMIGA COMPUTERS m Conrxd Bc»»anl Computers and chaos combined?
It all sounds rather too much like the Amiga Format office to be fun.
CONRAD BESSANT, SO lilt- blurb on lire back of ibis book stales, "is a regular contributor to Amiga Shofrper. This gives him a great deal of credibility until you realise that what this blurb actually means is ‘Conrad Bessant once wrote a series of articles about chaos for Amiga Sho i iei ami that w-as six months ago'. Mnnn.
And worse follows. The lirst paragraph of the opening chapter hits ou in the face with a hunch of half-baked theology, dodgy guimm.il. and laughable reasoning. The Ix-si advice here is to forget Conrad s reasoning and leap straight into the heaps of tvpe-in listing that make the rest ol the book useful, if a lot like a GCSE course book. There are lots and lots of Basic listings to he typed in, including simple fractal generators, Mandelbrot sets, |ulia Sets and mam others.
Once you've typed them all in.
You can pick up a paperback version of James Gleik's seminal hook Chaos if you want a whole-baked version of this complex theory. All in all. A useful tome for people who love type-ins. Cj COMPUTERS AND CHAOS DESCRIPTION Chaos type-ins and explanations AUTHOR Conrad Bessant PUBLISHER Sigma PRICE £12.95 VERDICT “ Ignore the babble about chaos theory and type in the reasonably fun programs. " THIS LAD IS into Amigas in the way Casanova was into ‘liaisons'
- tie loves them with a passion.
Dennv hubbies witli enthusiasm and also oilers lots of useful advice.
For example, did you know that you could cut and paste text front the Shell'- Were you aware that vou can switch the graphics handling awav from the Blitter and into the CPU (which should he tpiile a hit faster il you're using an '040-based machine) with a neat little piece of Shareware?
Every page of this book is written in an east style, conveying snappv little gobbets of information. Although I would have liked to have seen the publishers' editor (assuming they have one) nipping through this I K version of the Iwxik and doing a rough pound-to- doll.n exchange, although that's a small gripe. Without doubt, there is tonnes of information bursting to get out of this book - everything from comms and Workbench in graphics and Shell. The only thing you won't find a great deal about is games, although there are occasional joystick references.
This is .1 useful book hut it happily sidesteps dull worthiness hv using sub-titles such as Think I'm A Clone Sow (describing the Clone Option in Shell) or Co iy AH the Tiles Here - Sol! Again, thankfully Denny only lets his own sense of humour intrude occasionallv as a tightener rather than an 'aren't I great dude!' Irritation.
An excellent dip-in-and-read reference, it's just a shame that the publishers didn't do an English 'translation'. That Denny Atkins?
Diamond gee er. Cj DENNY ATKIN'S BEST AMIGA TIPS AND SECRETS DESCRIPTION Well-presented hints and tips AUTHOR Denny Atkin PUBLISHER Compute Books PRICE £18.45 VERDICT “ Well worth getting hold of.
An excellent insider's guide to the Amiga. “ "PAUL OVERAA whose technical expertise is frequcntlv used by a great many computer magazines including Amiga Formal."
It savs here. Not again! The last time we used Paul Overaa was in Issue 13! Three years ago! Doah!
It's the blurb writers from hell!
Fortunately for all ol us.
Though. Mr O doesn't bother with any half-baked philosophising in this loo-expensive reference to the Amiga’s hidden programming gem. Arexx. He just leaps into the fray with some reasonably presented listings and advice.
Arrexx. As we all know, is the Amiga version of the RF.XX programming language that Commodore has seen fit to adopt as part of Workbench.
Arexx is a specialised area that Paul seems to understand on a solid level. His stvle is drv and effective, if a little on the tediously studious side. This is not a hook for the occasional Arexx user.
However, it is about time that someone put together a guide to Arexx. This guide goes into installing Arrexx. A look at the main features and a comparison with other languages such as Basic.
As well as this it serves as an adequate introduction to some of the more advanced programming techniques that Arrexx makes available to vou. Together of course with a few obligators type-ins!
Vou certainly won't read this in bed - and of course, it obviously wasn't written with that in mind.
But one tiling's for sure, if you do read il from cover to cover, you'll be able to get a larger chunk of value front your Amiga than you had before, and that's nothing to sniff at. Worths and useful. Cj MASTERING AMIGA AREXX DESCRIPTION Practical guide to Arexx AUTHOR Paul Overaa PUBLISHER Bruce Smith Books PRICE £21.95 VERDICT “ It's good, but at £21.95 for a black-and-white book with no pictures it ain't cheap. ** 70% X- Stitch DESIGNER V3 A surprisingly popular hobby, cross-stitch is a natural for Amiga adaptation, as Steven Jenkins explains... LOOK HEAR!
YOU MAY OR may not have noticed, but in recent years people all over the countrv have been filling their leisure hours with an obsessive craft called cross stitch. You may have received a card, sampler or motto stitched by a friend or relation.
For those of you that don't know, cross-stitch works 011 the principle of building up a picture from lots of little squares, and as such is ideal for translation to a computer system.
If an "x" shaped stitch is worked in the right colour to represent each of these squares that make the image you can reproduce a design in silks or cotton on linen or other fabric.
These fabrics are not printed with the design ready to lx filled in.
As is generally the case with embroidery. But instead a chart is provided leaving the stitcher to decide what sizes and colours to work with.
II. -Soft have made a “complete cross stitch charting software”
package for the Amiga, and it could mean that grannies and
mothers all over the country will soon be wrestling their
offspring off the Amiga so that thev can run this program.
You have a worksheet with a max size of‘21X1 x 12(1 squares (this would produce a stitched piece of about thirteen inches bv seven inches). You can only work on an area of 50 x 30 stitches at a time but the whole image can be reviewed. There is a palette of 10 colours which can be edited and named or numbered to correspond to a thread colour. You then select a stitch stvle - whole or half stitches or backstitch - after which you can start to translate a rough idea into a finished workable design or. If you are feeling brave, straight 011 to the screen.
Depending 011 how complex the design is there are short cuts and hands functions sou can use to easils speed up copying, filling, mirroring and enlarging.
File final stage is the printing, a symbol is chosen to represent each of your colours and the chart is printed out in blocks of 50 x lit I. For anyone in the crazed stage ol cross-stitch mania who has an Amiga you can't go wrong for the price.

GET YOURSELF CONNECTED ...or ‘Win yourself one of three fabulous US Robotics Sportster modems courtesy of Phoenix Computer World'... AFTER MONTHS OF whingeing about his crossflow transmutation V73Bis modulation being out of sync, we decided to buy Bagulev a new modem, lie insisted he needed a really fab one, and after much negotiation we decided we'd let him go out shopping with a budget of around £450 to get himself one.
Being the fastidious sort of a bloke he is (he used to own a PC. You know) Richard had a stringent set of parameters which defined his ideal modem.
First there was speed. He likes his modems fast, does our Dicky. And we like him to have fast modems too, because it cuts down 011 our (already excessively huge) telephone hill.
Secondly there was reliability. There's nothing more frustrating than crashing in the middle of downloading pictures of a topless Claudia Schiffer from a bulletin board in Italy - only joking there, kiddies!
HOW TO ENTER Simply answer the questions below, write the answers on a postcard, or the back of a sealed envelope, and send them to us at: And finally there was BABT approval.
Despite his network-wandering ways. Bilbo is very law-abiding. No harking global megacorps for him. No downloading cracked software from pirate boards, nor does he hold tedious conversations with networked American divorcees pretending they are Brenda from 90210.
After much deliberation Richard made his decision, and he chose (roll of the drums)... the US Robotics Sportster.
It may be lovingly referred to in the office as 'the Stylophone', but the Sportster is a pretty spiff piece of kit. If you don't believe me. Read the review on Page

The front of die box has a number of lights, which inform you of the state of the modem and it looks rather like a stylophone. Although there's 110 sign of Roll Harris's signature and no stylus.
RELEASE Already available At the rear of the case are four sockets for connecting the power, serial lead, telephone line and telephone. There is also a set of Dll’ switches which control the way the modem starts up.
V32bis is extremely fasf, so you can download large files quickly.
You're told how to set the switches tip in the manual, whirl) is designed for use with different types of computers hut is saved from being confusing by the fact that all the AT commands that you need to control the modem arc detailed and plenty of examples are supplied.
RIGHT: The Sportster has built-in help on all of the commands which can be used with it.
The most important aspect of a modem such as this is how well it talks to others. Some modems have difficulty with certain others, hut the Sportster has 110 such problems. I’ve used it to connect with bulletin boards as far apart as Hull and Arizona and it's not failed once. Even over dodgy transatlantic phone lines, it performs flawlesslev.
BELOW: Using a fast modem such as the Sportster makes it much faster to access bulletin Boards such as Metnet (pictured), which use a lot of ANSI graphics, and can save a lot of money when down loading big files.
It ttsc's the- V32bis protocol. Wrhieh sends data at 14.400 bits per second. Add to this V42bis data compression and you arc looking at a very fast modem. However, if you're talking to a modem that doesn't 1:- quality fifflts - REConmnoEO nou QUALITY GATES - HAVl FUN OHLIRE J:- 6AT1ES in A RE XX- AMGA LAR6UAGE 4:- AOLE PLAYIHG - IV CRIS P

Also supplied with the modem is the PD disk Opticomm (which includes the comms program 'tomm) and a serial lead to connect to the -Amiga. This gives you all you need to get started in comms.
The Sportster can also handle faxes, but you will need some extra software to do diis, such as the PI) program Afax or the generic version of the commercial package (,1’Fax I wasn't able 10 test GPFax, but the demo version of Afax worked fine after a bit of tweaking of config files. The modem supports the common Group III fax standard, and can send and receive faxes at up to 9600 bits per second.
The obvious competitor to this new modem is the Supra Y’32Bis Fax modem, which is widely available for around £250.
At this price, the Sportster is the clear winner. With full BABT approval and none of the connection problems that have bedevilled the Supra since its release. Cj Fairly good, with plenty of explanation of the control commands.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • Bundled lead and software get you on-line immediately.
A i'J :T 4-1 With box fox and data capabilities, it's very well-featured.
VALUE • • • I Slightly more expensive than its Supra rival, but if is BT approved.
VERDICT " An excellent modem, fast and at a reasonable price. Slightly more expensive than its nearest competitor, but this is the one to choose because it does what it promis Master your Amiga

You already know that there are some excellent free and Shareware programs in the Public Domain.
But do the latest releases from the world of PD measure up? We gave Richard Baguley a tape measure and a notebook and sent him merrily on his way to find out... 1UP SCORE HI SCORE 860 25060 Being harassed by blobbies who have been transformed into fruit must count as one of life’s major downers.
L. UIUCHTIIVIE ISSUE IV ROBERTA SMITH PD Most disk mags contain
something to do with computers. Not so Lunchtime. According
to the authors, it was the result of seven ugly people being
nailed to desks for ten months without any food, water or
other facilities. Yes. Right. Well, the result is decidedly
odd. Articles range from the truth about cross channel
ferries, to speculations on the possibility of extinct animals
roaming the seas, and a poem about a celebrity dolphin.
Several bits are rather, crm, adult in tone (and one or two are somewhat blasphemous), but if you're interested in the weirder side of the Amiga community. Lunchtime is certainly worth a look.
Furthermore, unlike most disk mags, it's freeware, so you can pass it on to as many people as you like.
FRUIT SALAD WACK PD One day. The people of Blobville were engaged in their favourite pastime of jumping up and down in a rather aimless way. When nasty Triax suddenly appeared and turned the hapless blobbies into vegetables in order to guard his geins. I lowever, he missed one blobby by the unlikely name of Brewster, who then set out to collect all of Triax's gems and save his friends from being stir-fried.
Pausing only to put on his shades, he embarked 011 a multi-screen platform quest.
All right, so I nicked that last bit from the introduction to Fruit Salad. Anyway, this is a pretty good platform game, even if the sprites are a bit small. There are several nice touches, including the wav Brewster coughs and taps his foot if you don't move fast enough, and some good samples accompany his prodigious leaps.
It's difficult, hut with patience, you should be able to get on reasonably quickly. It’s released as shareware, lor a very reasonable £5.
Continued overleaf e STARBASE *13 MAGNETIC FIELDS GA023 A graphic adventure based around - surprise! - a starbase. Something nasty has happened and three nasty Stingons have been detected somewhere in the station. You, the heroic shade-wearing captain Yeno, have been sent to work out what's going on.
It's a point-and-dick style of game, similar to Monkey Island or Lure of the Temptress, although it's nowhere near as polished. However, it has good graphics and some neat sound effects. A menu bar gives you access to seven commands, and you can apply these to objects on the screen.
For instance . H there was an Editor wandering around, you could dick on shoot and then dick on the Editor to give him what he deserves.
It's not a huge adventure, but it's certainly big enough to keep you occupied for a few hours.
The graphics are pretty good, and the control system works pretty well, although it's not very intelligent. For instance, if you want to examine an object that's behind something, you have to manoeuvre your character round it before examining. But. These are only minor complaints, and Edward Clay has done an excellent job of designing and coding the game using AMOS Professional.
NOVEMBER 1 993 PD GAMES & UTILITIES WORLD WAR II HYPERBOOK MAGNETIC FIELDS ED006 Facts and figures about the Second World War abound, and Asgard Software have taken a large wodge of information and tried to make it fun and presentable bv putting it in Ilvperbook form.
You are presented with a menu about various aspects of the war. (’.boosing a subject moves you 011 to a screen with other topics, and you click on one to see the next screen.
What makes presentations of this kind good is ease of use and the quality of the images. This is easy to use, but the images have been badly scanned and cropped. The designers have put in a lot of effort, but the result is disappointing.

So long as you have a PI) disk which has a tune using the sample you want, you can get this disk and run one of the sample rippers 011 it.
The ripper will search through memory and inform you if it linds any samples or song modules. You can then save them out to disk and load them into MED or Soundlrmkcr to include in your own tunes. This disk includes four different sample rippers, so one of them should be able lo find the samples if they're still in memory. Also included is Stimplrmakrr, a program which enables you to create samples from simple waveforms.
It's pretty buggy, (as in irving to access 1)111: when I don't have a second disk in the machine) but the demo songs contain some strong drum sounds, and with a judicious bit of fiddling it can produce some really pleasant noises.
STORY LAW D 2 MAGNETIC FIELDS ED021 Storyland is not a happy place. A wicked witch has taken over and has been doing nasty things like spraving graffiti everywhere and stealing all the colours. So. It’s down to you as the champion of justice and freedom to beat the witch armed only with a teddy and a packet of felt tip pens.
As you may have guessed, this title is aimed at the younger end of the market. It's a simple poinl- and-click-type adventure, with several colouring- I MIMIt 1 M«H- .1 1 Smilvitm l umswf_

NOVEMBER 1993 PD GAMES & UTILITIES Recent Fred Fish disks
have contained such useful programs as ARTM. A fearfully
useful program which will tell you eaactly what's lurking in
the innards of your Amiga (assuming you don't know).
A recent Fish offering was the very silly Lyr-O-Mst.
Which generates random sentences. Highly amusing: SUBSCRIBERS GET IT EVERY MONTH PUBLIC DOMAIN JARGON BUSTED The world of Public Domain is full of confusing terms and names. Here Amiga Format aims to demystify this world,with a guide to common PD terms and names.
OroZ[ IF YOU WERE . look in the adverts of any PD company, one name would pop up consistently. That name would be Fred Fislt.
Since the birth of the Amiga in late 1985, he's been producing what many people regard as the best collection of PD programs available for the Amiga. So why did he start the library?
"I didn't really start it with the intention of it being a long-term thing." Says Fred. "I just w-antcd to collect together a few utilities I had and make them available to everybody else, and it just kind of grew from there."
Since then, he's released over 900 disks, averaging around 15 a month. Fred explains how he chooses a program: “Probably around 25 to 50 per cent of the stuff submitted to tnc makes it to the lloppv distribution.
When I look at a program. I have to decide if This month's Subscriber Superdisk contains 10 excellent programs, and one font.
Most of the programs are from Fred Fish disks 880 to 890. There's also a copy of the excellent Blitz Basic game Buzzbar. And an excellent art deco font called Harrington. See Page 168 now for details on how to subscribe and receive your free Superdisk and monthly newsletter!
Fred Fish has recently announced that he will be soon moving his noted PD collection on to CD.
Richard Baguley spoke to the man himself to find out why... people will find il useful and if it's good enough quality. There are also space constraints, but this should be less of a problem when I'm on to CD.” Fred does a lot of juggling compiling 15 disks a month, so he's decided to switch over to producing the library on CD-ROM.
"When I reach disk 1.000 I won't be doing any more floppies. It'll be purely on CD-ROM. The first CD should be ready for release in early October. There will be a monthly CD that has all the new material for that month."
This will be released in two forms: an archived format suitable for use with a BBS and a ready-to- run format. Several tools such as compilers anti text readers will also be included every month. But how much new material will each disk include?
"There should be a couple of hundred megabytes of tools, utilities and stuff like that," Fred explains. "The remaining part of the disk will PUBLIC DOMAIN - Any software which is in the Public Domain (PD) can be copied and distributed by anybody, as long as no money beyond the cost of providing the disk changes hands, though not necessarily as little as £2. As we said last month (include mail order and staff costs, and many libraries have to charge a little more). There are PD companies that advertise in Amiga Format, so read through the adverts. You are also allowed to make copies of PD disks
and distribute them to friends yourself, again as long as you don't make a profit.
SHAREWARE - This means that the freely distributable version on the disk is disabled in some way. And the full version can be obtained by be for the new material submitted that month. Hopefully there will be enough overlap [between disks] to enable users to buy every other disk and still get all of the new material. Once I get to floppy disk
1. 000, there will also be a CD available containing all of the
disks in the library.” So how much will the Cds cost? "$ 20.
But I’m only going to produce as many as people order, so if people want a particular CD-ROM. They will have to pre-order it.
There will be a few extra copies available for people who haven't pre-ordercd, and these will cost $ 30."
The compilation CD-ROM of the first 1,000 disks should Ik- available in February, and will also cost $ 20 if you order it in advance.
Obviously, you will need a CD-ROM drive in order to access these discs, but you could use a CDTV connected via I’arNet (featured on last month's Subscriber Superdisk - see Page 168 lor details) lo another machine, or get hold of a cheap SCSI CD-ROM drive if you have a SCSI equipped machine. Many Bulletin Boards now have CD-ROM drives attached, and you should be able to download the software from these. 'I) CONTACTING FRED FISH Fred Fish's CD-ROM discs can be ordered from: FRED FISH Amiga Library disks 1835 East Belmont Drive Tempe. Arizona 8S284 USA Or you can leave E-Mail at this number
E-Mail: FNF9FISHPOND.CYGNUS.COM sending a small sum to the software's author.
Some people distribute the full version, but with the proviso that if you use the program regularly, you should send them a small registration fee.
There's no way for the author to force you to do this, but you are morally (and legally) obliged.
LICENCE WARE - Somewhere between PD and commercial programs, in that you are not allowed to distribute it. But it doesn't cost very much.
A Licenceware disk will cost you under a fiver, but as a rule the quality of the programs are much higher than many Public Domain programs.
FREEWARE - Totally unrestricted, copyable PD.

AKIRA SLIDESHOW 2 17-BIT. DISK 2695 After Marvel comics, Manga's Japanese style of animation is probably the most popular subject for an Amiga PD slideshow, with three or four good shows appearing in the first half of this year.
Robert Iveson’s wort is pretty patchy, but there are some really good images which are worth seeing.
Each of the images is either hand-drawn in hi-res mode, or scanned in monochrome and recoloured. Where Robert falters occasionally is in the definition of his drawings: sometimes the images are blurred when they should be sharp, sometimes he uses a stippling effect when the colours should be uniform, as they are in the film itself. Roll on Akira Slideshow 3. Though.
( arl Inc is set to achieve cull status with Ins set of bizarre animations. First there was the fairly daft Christmas Demo (reviewed AF42). Then the I Unit Anim (Reviewed AF44), and now this.
CIRCUS AIUIIVI 17-BIT. DISK 2684 Like the previous two shows. Cirrus is a looped anim in the style of the now-ancient Ariston adverts (where the action loops on. And on, and on). An Indian Fakir on a bed of nails blows lire onto a moving cannon, firing a human cannonball through the roof of ihc marquee: a dog jumps through a pair of hoops; the lop half of a woman's dress falls down, causing her ( blush. Loads ol things go on in the same screen, and ii takes a few minutes to spot them all. Good fun.
The first message to he displayed in this demo contained the words "Fairlighl cracked,” at which point I was about to stick the disk in the bin. The 242 demo started quickly, though, and it's... interesting. Technically very clever, boasting 29Mb really?) Of graphics packed on to a single disk, it's a near lull-motion video of somebody walking around a shopping centre.
Fans of the Belgian band Front 242 should have recognised the title, but the demo has very little to do with them - in fact, the music isn't even in their industrial style. The only reference to Front 242 is at the end of the demo, when the guy in the picture wanders into a record shop and pulls out a Front 242 CD. The acid rave style soundtrack is good, hut not quite the heavy dance music I expected.
17-B T. DISK 2686 Fans of the bizarre will enjoy this. In a similar vein to the Circus Anim. Alternate llea tly is a landscape image with lots of surreal animations going on based around the landscape. For example, a cloud in the sky is sucked into the top of the mountain, then spat out again forming a snow cap. A longue then pops out of the sky. Creating an image of a face, and a skier zooms down the tongue and off into the distance.
The music is just like the stuff they play at the cinema when they ask you not to smoke and to go and buy popcorn. The graphics could be a lot better, but the surrealist ideas are interesting.
ROMANTK CYNOST1C PD The new Melon Dezign demo is very weird. It seems they've taken seriously people's comments about I’D demos becoming very similar, and gone to the other extreme. The demo is introduced by a kind of photo-love story involving hi-res digitised pics of the Hrverty Hills 90210 cast, all talking about the new Romantic demo which they've just downloaded, while a twangy electric guitar plays a rendition of the 90210 theme tune. Odd.

Lancashire PR2 2AW. 0772 881190 The demo itself is a picture and a long srrolly message. Oh. Yes. And a sample of the Sex Pistols’ Aiuirrhy in the UK which sounds throaty and really grunged up (probably a Melon coder in his garage). Excellent, bill there's a fair amount of strong language in the lexl - sexually explicit, and pretty unnecessary. Still, now I've warned you.
STAR TREK - THE NEXT GENERATION SLIDES VOLUME *1 MAGNETIC FIELDS. DISK SS042 These Sex! (.aumtitm demos are proving quite popular lately (ai least with die authors, if not with the reviewers.) After the debacle of the slideshow Deep Sprue Xme last month. I thought (bat might Ik- the last we'd see of poorly-digilised images ol the Sim 'irrk cast. Noi die ease.
The images on ibis demo are better than those on the Drep Sprue .Vine disk. But as long as colour composite digitisers are used, the results are going to Ik- |XM r. Still I rekkies will love them.
THE CHRONICLE SLIDESHOW MAGNETIC FIELDS. DISK SS045 A set of low-res ray-traced images squeezed on a single disk by coders Trance. The pics have only 64 colours, so they run on all Amigas. But even so some of the results are very nice - especially the images shown here. Subjects include the inside of a prison cell, a turbine engine, and a tree - a diverse selection. A heavy back be at pounds away in the background as the ten images are decrunched and displayed one by one.
With the new A1200 stealing the limelight from its older brothers, if s good to see quality ray- traced images in 64 colours. Even so. Lef s see the same slideshow rendered in HAM8 mode - that would be something else!
Presumably ibis epilepsy-inducing little music and graphics number is named after the feeling you gel when you've sal all the way through the demo.
Vomil is a brazen and outrageous mish-mash of colours and shapes flashed in lime with a techno soundtrack. Not just any old colours either - ibis specialises in the throw-worthy and so disgusting purple and magenta are the overriding lines.
Other than that, the demo is almost exactly the same as Stole of Ihe Art. Hut without the clever morphing and animation techniques which that rival demo puls to good use.
This is a new concept in trackmos. Though - not just fit-inducing but also vomit-inducing. How sick can these people get? Seriously, not a had demo - hut next time, not so heavy on the diced carrots please, coders!
TELE SCAN This. Cr. Delightful little animation tries to offer nicoline-atltlictetl Amiga fans the best three ways to give up the evil weed... or at least the best wbich spring from the fevered depths ol the animator's imagination.
His ideas are very good, in that the poor guv demonstrating the methods involved will probably never smoke again. Jumping from the roof of a tall office block, driving your car off the top a cliff and chopping your arm ofTwith a meat cleaver arc the three somewhat radical ideas which are given the full cartoon animation treatment.
The ideas aren’t new. Every single one having been done before by cartoon animators, and they’re not even very well animated. But. They art- sick and twisted, so fans of sick and twisted stuff will smirk. Like me. 'If Our... errm... hero takes a last couple of drags before giving up - giving up his left hand, that is!

The very essence of a football strategy game is its accuracy With transfers happening every day. Rules being changed and players being injured, shop games are out-of-date the moment they come out Some publishers issue yearly revisions That may be fine but not fine enough for us The FT2 you buy is 100% up-to-date We revise the program and data weekly There are no compromises Who wants to play a game that says that Fiorentina are in serie A. or Forest in the Premier League7 Who wants to play a game that features Eric Cantona at Leeds or Ruud Gullit still at Milan? No known Tl.'T football game is
more up-to-date than FT2 and that's a fact!

THIS AMIGA IS DEAD From 1‘ Leonard. (.real Yarmouth Help. I think I has-c killed my Amiga. I have an A600HD and I was mucking about with the hard drive trying to save software to it. Having given it up as a bad job I reset the machine only to get the message "Not a DOS disk in Device HDO:". Is this incurable or should I register it with a hospice?
Please help. I don't even have the manuals any more and don't know where to get a replacement.
Well, whatever you tried to do to your hard disk, it didn't like it very much. What has happened is that the sectors on the disk which contain vital booting and DOS information have been corrupted. This probablv happened if you turned the machine off while the drive was being accessed - very naughty' There are two things you can do. If vou had vital information on the disk you can trv resurrecting it with a recovery program such as FixIUsk (which is PD and available from all good libraries).
If you don't care much for what was on the disk, you can simply reformat it.
To do this you need to boot up from a Workbench floppy tlisk. When Workbench has loaded, click once on the hard disk's icon (which will be displayed as HD0:??r or IIDO:NDOS) and Continued overleaf DBHEfiiHLUlinM ? Noma I ? Selected Diropus Systen D ?
T*.
. If vast blank tpacat are giving you grief, why not check the menu?
IconEditor on WB3 hat I have an A1200 with an 80Mb hard drive and I have a few questions. On IconEditor which comes with WB3, when I design icons for the RAM disk and my hard drive and then save them they leave a big blank space where I haven't actually drawn anything. I've gone right through the manuals but have found no solution to this.
Also. I already have Dpaint IV and I want an AGA paint program. Would it be worth getting Dpaint IV AGA or should I wait for Dpaint V?
Well, the IconEditor problem is quite simple. When you have finished drawing your design and are ready to save it, simply select the Auto TopLcft option from the Extras menu. This will reposition your icon into the top left- hand corner of the editing window and eliminate any spare background colour which is left underneath and to the right of the image you have drawn. Now save the icon without making any other changes and your problems will be solved.
As to the Dpaint question, it is very likely that EA are thinking about a Dpaint V and that, since IV AGA has been included in the new A1200 box. Its release will be sooner rather than later. Upgrade deals are always available, though, so if you can't wait go for the AGA version now and upgrade later. It may be that you don't need the latest version - don't buy until you have seen the authoritive review in Amiga Format'.
Select Format Disk from the icon menu. Once t lie disk lias formatted you will tlien have to copy all the Workbench stuff back on.
As for manuals, they tend to only come with machines, but you could phone Commodore on 0R28 770088 and ask nicely.
CD CONSOLES?
OR IF NOT, WHAT?
From Jeffrey Levine, Cheadle Hulme I have a few short questions to ask you.
1) Should I get an A1200 or a CD**2?
2) Why do games tips appear in die mag so soon after the game is
released? I find this annoying becaiLse I only have the game a
few days and then it is finished.
3) Will the Action Replay III work with the CD*2?
4) Why is the Amiga CD*2 always compared to the Sega Mega Drive
when everyone knows the Amiga is much better?
Well, here are a few brief answers then.
1) Buy both. They're both brilliant.
2) They generally appear al least two months after a game is
reviewed and often longer. II you think this is too quick you
could always bun your issue in the back garden and dig it up
six months later.
3) No.
I) Because it is the only other CD-capable console unless you
count the 31)0 (which isn't released) or the CD-i (which is
more than twice the price).
SEEING THE LIGHT From David McAllister, Belfast, Norn Iron Having just bought an A600 1 have just one question. In the user manual it states clearly that you must not remove a disk from the computer’s drive while the drive light is on.
When playing games such as Flashback, it asks you to change disks, but the drive light remains permanently on. What is going wrong?
There is nothing wrong with your machine.
Unfortunately many games programmers don’t expect Amiga owners to follow the advice in their manuals. What is usually happening in these cases is that the drive is spinning but the heads aren't actually accessing the disk itself.
So long as you only ever do this with games atid you make sure you can't hear the disk spinning, it is not dangerous to remove the disk at these times.
But it docs cause a small amount of unnecessary' extra wear and tear on your disk drive. II everybody wrote stern letters to the games software houses involved in doing things this way. Perhaps this bad habit would die out... A1200 WORRIES From Peter Worrall. Cleethorpes After recently upgrading from an A600 to a nice new A1200 1 was somewhat surprised to discover that Workbench 2.05 worked on the new machine.
I was given to understand that in order to run a Workbench disk, you needed to have the corresponding ROM - please explain.
.Also, when I select the Original Chip Set from the bool menu, will this option stay operative until 1 reboot the computer?
Lastly, when I turn the computer on it takes over ten seconds before the Insert Workbench screen appears. This process only took about six seconds on my A600. Is there something wrong with my new- machine?
Well, any previous version of Workbench should run on the A1200. If they didn't, self-booting PD disk and magazine Covcrdisks would have a hard time. It doesn't work the other way round, though
- a 1.3 machine won’t run WB2 or WB3.
When using die Ik tot options they are onlv effective until the next reset if you turn the machine off or reset it using the kevboard anv options will return to the default settings.
The A1200 does take longer to ‘warm up', because the ROM has more system checks to make (more custom chips, more memory... it all adds up to more work lot the ROM). Ten seconds does seem a little long, but if it comes up in under 15 I shouldn't worn.
THIS MONTH IN the new look Workbench section we sec the start of a new column dedicated to the thousands of people enjoying thi- fruits ol the amazing complete .AMOS Coverdisk program we gave you as a rather nice little present to celebrate the festive season last Christmas.
There are always a few problems when trying lo gel to grips with a new programming language - cspcciallv if you are completely new to programming. Hopefully the Mastering AMOS series we have been running will have got you off to a flying start, but if you have more specific problems this is the place to come.
Every month the most interesting or tricky problems will be answered here, so if your utility isn’t working quite the wav you intended it to. Your code gels all twisted up in knots or your programming skills desert you when it comes to parallax scrolling, get writing now!

lot of trouble getting it to work.
NO MORE FLICKING VIDEO MODES From Nigel Stutt, Whitley Bay. Tyne and Ivear Every time I try to double-click on the icon ail error message appears telling me that I need “explode.library' v4+".
The libs directory on the disk contains a file called explode.library but when I attempt to move it I get the message “Error 213 - disk not validated". Please, please, say that you can help.
I can help. Is that good enough- No. I suppose you want me to tell you what’s going on. Well, the program is looking for the explode.library in the libs directory of your startup disk There are two things you can do.
You could hoot directly from the Maxiplan disk, which should solve all your problems.
Alternatively, you could copy the library lo the libs directory of your usual boot-up disk, which is what I presume you were trying lo do when vou got the error message.
If the disk is not validated. AmigaDOS will not allow you to write lo the disk at all. This is because without validation the system doesn’t know which parts of the disk are in use and doesn’t want to delete them accidentally.
The best course of action would Ik- to make a copy of this disk immediately, then trv and copy the library you need.
HOW MANY MEGS?
From Matthew Aylen, Colchester, Fssex I want to buy a hard drive for my A1200. And I have a large collection of games and utilities which Continued overleaf •* I have read your answers to similar queries regarding video resolution images, monitors and flicker fixers but I am still confused. I would like to set up an Amiga system capable of generating images in Real3D, Imagine, Dpaint and Morph Plus.
I know that it is necessary to get a flicker fixer for the A500 to use high resolutions, and I assume the 4000 has one built in, but what about the A1200?
What sort of A1200 setup would I need to produce images of a quality similar to that of those produced by Foundation Imaging for Babylon 5, as shown in your excellent article?
You do need a flicker fixer for interlaced screen modes, but not for the hi res and super hi res modes.
You will need a dual-scan, tri-scan or multiscan monitor to use the Productivity and DBLPAL screen modes that are available on the A1200, though.
Using DBIPAI and a I960 or similar monitor you can simulate the resolution of an interlaced screen in high resolution, giving an effective resolution of 676 by 547 pixels using overscan.
Alternatively you can get a flicker fixer and use an interlaced super hi res screen which is 1440 x 566 pixels (or you can do this without the fixer and let it seriously do your head in).
If you want a 1200 to produce serious graphics you will need a hard drive (around 150Mb minimum) and lots of RAM, preferably with an accelerator thrown in.
An extra 8Mb of RAM is my minimum recommendation for ray-tracing and image processing There are a number of good accelerator-plus-RAM cards available for the A1200 such as the Microbotics series, the GVP A1230 and the Power PC1204, depending on just how much acceleration you want For output to video you don't need a flicker fixer.
Interlaced images will record fine. A flicker fixer is only worth the money and effort if you are going to display the finished images on screen rather than on video, in a presentation situation perhaps.

I mil next month, happs « oding! O I would like to put on it. What size of drive would you recommend? I am currently looking at 120- 170Mb drives. Should 1 be considering a PCMCIA hard drive?
Also, when il is finally released I will be wanting to add a CD drive. Will having an internally installed drive prevent me from adding this too?
To the point... The thing about hard drives is that they are never big enough. If you are like me and hate throwing things away, you will soon discover that you need about 600Mb at least.
Realistically, you can fit a minimal system and a select crop of utilities into a 60Mb drive, but then you have nowhere to store your data. The answer is really that you should buy the biggest one you can afford. I would think that sensibly (depending on how big your games are) 150Mb would be sufficient.
An internal drive is probably the best solution, as it will use the Amiga's power supply and be tucked neatly out of the way. A PCMCIA is a useful second drive (or even as a first drive if you can get it cheaper than an ll)K).
Remember that unless you choose to have it fitted for you by a recognised and 1CL approved dealer, installing an internal drive will invalidate your warranty, whereas a PCMCIA drive won't.
When the CD drive is finally release, it is likely that it will use the trapdoor expansion underneath your A1200. So it will not affect either of your possible hard drive options.
TRACKBALL TROUBLE From Nicholas Batchelor. I j melon Haring used my Contriver trackball for a couple of years the mouse pointer now refuses to move up or down. I know that the trackball is at fault because the mouse still works fine. I tried opening up the trackball unit to see if 1 could find anything that had obviously gone wrong.
1 found an orange wire loose inside but haring checked the terminals inside I can find no signs of this wire ever haring actually been connected.
What could be wrong?
The mouse port is configured for mice or trackballs as shown in the diagram here. If you are only having problems with the vertical motion it is likely to be either the vertical pulse or the vertical quadrature pulse If you are getting absolutely no movement at all. It is more likely to be the vertical pulse line that isn't working.
If the terminals arc marked at all it will (relabelled as VP or simply V'. II not, then your best bet is trying to track the line back to the photodetector which controls the vertical wheel.
Unfortunately this model has been superceded so we have no terminal information on it. But you Continued overleaf » 01 own a still video camera which captures and stores single video frames. What I really need now is a piece of hardware that will put the picture into my Amiga, enable me to play around with the picture and print it out.
A Well, the first piece of equipment you will need is a video digitiser This will accept a video signal and convert it into an Amiga-displayable image As you have a still camera, you do not necessarily need a frame grabber, but it may be worth considering Rombo’s Vidi range Vidi 12 should do the job you require, but it depends on exactly what you want to do with the resulting pictures. For more info, give Rombo a call on 0506 414631 If you want to play around with your pictures, you should think about Dpaint IV (not the AGA version) or perhaps GVP's ImageFX or ASDGs Art Department Prolesuonal
Any and all of these programs are quite capable of printing out your finished work, but they will print much better if you use TurboPrmt, which was on last month's Coverdisk 0 Please could you tell me if there is a cheap tape streamer device available for the A500 Plus and what speed it can do? Also is there any way that I can get all my programs put onto a CD for use with the CDTV A570 machines, like the Kodak PhotoCD machine can do for photos A You can use any SCSI tape streamer with your Amiga, providing you have the correct interface The A590 and HD8* hard drives for the A500 both have
SCSI through ports If you are looking for a cheap backup system though, you would be much better off with the Video Backup System which uses a clever technique to record all your data onto a videotape using your normal, common-or-garden video recorder As for mastering a CD. This can be an expensive busi ness A one-off disk might cost you as much as £ 1.000 To buy a CD read write drive, such as those used for Photo CD. You would expea to pay somewhere in the region of £4.000 It doesn't say in your letter whether you are immensely rich or not. But assuming you are not.
Mastering your own CD is a bit out of the question You neglea to say why you want to set up such a system, but if you are serious I suggest you contact Almathera Systems on 081 6836418 Owhat is the difference between a compiler and an interpreter?
A Well, they both perform the same funaion (converting a written language into code which a computer can execute), but in different ways An inter preter deals with each line of code as it comes to it This means that it runs a lot slower than an executable file, as the conversion is done while the jjrogram is running With a compiler all the mstruaions are translated in advance to create an executable hie This can take quite a while, but it means the resulting code is an executable file which runs a lot faster Compilers can increase the development time of a piece of software because the program
has to be com piled every time it is tested, but the increase in speed is worth it for most applications.
Ohow can I add a password program to protect data on my Amiga?
A The first thing you need to do is get hold of the password program, or write one yourself If you do write your own it will have to stand alone (in other words, be an executable file in its own right rather than one that needs to run via an interpreter) so that it can be called from the CLI Then simply run it from your startup- sequence Unless you have installed some other custom software, it should be sate enough to call your program at the start of the startup-sequence To do this simply add your program to the C: direc tory of your boot-up disk and edit the startup-sequence file (in the S
directory) so that the first line is the name of your program The rest of the sequence won't be carried out until your program quits Unfortunately, this method is not really secure (people could still boot up your Amiga from other disks and get into your data from there), but it would stop errant cousins and small children from re formatting all your disks when you weren't around 01 am upgrading from an A500 to an A4000 030.
Is it possible to somehow use my old A500 hard drive?
Alt depends You can't just plug in an A500 expansion into the Zorro slots on an A4000 You may be able to use the mechanism, though. If your drive has an IDE mechanism then you can attach this to the IDE controller which comes with the A4000 This is a quite straightforward operation, but you will have to take apart your old drive and disconnea the mechanism There will be two cables conneaed to the mechanism One will most likely be an IDC multiway conneaor which direaly corresponds to the one inside the A4000 The other will be the power supply four wires ending m a socket The 4000 also has
these cables, but they may be a different size. It may be worth checking the board of your hard drive for indications of which wire is which in this case and then "adapting' one of the A4000 s cables It you have a SCSI hard drive, you will need a SCSI controller card for your A4000 Attaching a SCSI mecha msm is much the same process as the one outlined above and instructions will no doubt be supplied with the SCSI controller when you buy it.
0 Please could you tell me if there is an x-y plotter available for the Amiga and will my programs support it?
A There is no direct support for any type of x-y plotter through Workbench, so you are really restricted to the ones that are supporte by your software To the best of our knowledge the only programs which do direaly support plotters are X-Cad, Provector and Professional Oraw. Which can all drive an HPGl compatible plotter This is a fairly common standard for modern plot ters. But you may find that since demand for plottters is not what it was. That such devices are both hard to find in a local computer store and expensive Depending on what exactly you need from your plotter it may be a lot
easier to build one Q Where can I get hold of details of Commodore's Include tiles?
A The Include files themselves are usually bundled with development systems such as the assembler Devpac or the C language SAS C, under licence from Commodore If you need to get your hands on listings of them you will need to buy the book of the official Rom Kernal Reference manuals, published by Adison Wesley (0734 794000) The volume you want is cryptically called 'Includes and Autodocs" The same publishers also produce a wide range of other specialist Amiga volumes which could be of great use to you if you wish to get into some serious programming Why not ask them to send you a catalogue7 If

SIZE MATTERS From Kevin Smith, Troon. Ayrshire I have an A600 with Workbench 2.05 but I am having difficulty with space. Is there any way of splitting my Workbench over more than one disk because I don't have room for everything that I need. Like all my printer drivers and fonts?
The trouble with Workbciu h. as with a lot ol things this month, is that it isn’t big enough.
Thankfully there is an answer, and it comes in the form of the rather less than impressive-sounding Assign command.
When you boot up your machine, it automatically expects to find commands in the ‘c* directors of that disk, libraries in the ‘lilis’ directory, fonts in the cunningly named ’fonts' directory and so on.
These are the default settings, but they can Ix- changed. If you wanted to have all your fonts on a disk called 'bigfonts' for example, all you would have to do is add this line to the end of your startup-sequence (or type it directly in to the CL1): HOW TO MAKE RAD AUTOMATIC From Imran Majid, Leyton, London Icons are not just for decoration, they can pass Information to the main program.
I’agrsrttrr will automatically fall back into non- interlac e inode when supplies of RAM are running low (as an interlaced screen takes up twice as muc h memory as a standard one). There is a way to automatically set interlace off. Though, and il is done, as are many of the preferences, through the tool-types attached to the program's icon. This is the way most of Gold Disk's programs work.
To change the preferences, simply select the icon and choose "Information" from the Workbench's Icon menu. A screen will appear showing some information about the program and a list of the current tool types.
From Simon l.iddiard, Odiham, llanls I have an A500 Plus (which features 2Mb Chip RAM. 2Mb Fast RAM. S12K 32-bit RAM) with a CSA Mega Midget Racer and a Commodore A590 fitted with a 42Mb SCSI drive. All this is housed in a Checkmate A1500 casing.
Unfortunately rendering animations eats into my hard disk space and I am looking to upgrade it by about 100Mb or so. I was wondering if it would be possible to drive more than one SCSI drive directly off the AS90's controller by using an appropriate cable.
I know it would be possible to add an external drive, but this would be a rather expensive option and not a particularly elegant one. This Is particularly so as my machine has to be fairly portable.
LEW SAYS: The SCSI interface supports six drives plus the controller.
You can therefore have up to 6 SCSI drives connected to an A590. Since the A590 is an older product however, you may need to upgrade your current AS90 firmware to revision 6.6 or better There will be one which reads "INTF.R- LACE=ON", and you will simply have to change this to "INTERLACF OFF All the tool types and their meanings are explained in the manual.
UPGRADE QUERIES From Richard Cleaves, Newcastle-Under-Lyme My present set-up consists of an A500 complete with a Power Computing 1.5 Mb upgrade (the one that allows 1Mb of Chip RAM), a PC 880B second disk drive and a Star LC200 printer. Do you think that the new breed of incompatible AGA machines will mean that I will be able to get hold of a lot of peripherals for my machine at a significantly reduced price?
Also, is Directory Opus -I capable of completely replacing the CL! And Shell?
I am thinking about upgrading, but will I be able to install a ROM switcher bearing in mind the expansions already in my machine? What about an internal hard disk as well?
Some interesting points. Firstly, I should think that you would be able to fit a ROM switcher internally. But I don't think you will want to. Because of the changes in the 2.04 ROM. The modifications you have made to your machine to accommodate the RAM expansion will be incompatible with a ROM upgrade.
Yes. I imagine that various peripherals, particularly those which use the expansion port, will be available at reduced prices. Bear in mind that a lot of these units have been selling on tight profit margins for some time, so the reductions may not be that impressive.
Directors Opus is a wonderful utility, but I'm not sure exactly what you mean by replacing the Workbench and Shell. Certainly it has been You will then have to put this disk into the drive everv time Workbench needs a font, though, which can he a pain il vou only have one drive.
There is no reason, on the other hand, whv you Couldn't put several different types of lilt- on a separate disk (vou can assign as mam things as vou like to one devic e).
A solution which most people prefer is just to delete all the things on the Workbench disk that they don't use and create space that way.
Tflirar PACESETTER WITHOUT LACE From Michael Simmonds. Leyland, l-ancashire I own an A500 with a GVP hard drive on which I have successfully installed Pacesetter. The program works fine, but the screen comes up in interlaced screen mode, which is a bit annoying.
After using the program for a while it will go back to a normal non-interlaced mode of its own accord, but surely there must be some way to get it to start up in this way?
To uu the RAD device you must simply ask Workbench politely if it minds Failing that using the Diskchange command wil bring results.
Having recently got hold of an A1500 and a copy of Get the Most Out of Your Amiga I have been trying in vain to set myself up with a recoverable RAM drive I am quite sure that I have typed in the mentalist entry correctly and there seems to be no problem when I give the mount command, but I 9e* no 'ton on screen How can I R copy my files into it to set up a recoverable Workbench’ Ah, it only the questiona were all so simple What appears to have happened is that you have in tact completely correctly set up your RAD disk and it is working fine The thing about Workbench, though, is that it can be
a little dozy at times, and if you go around adding new devices after startup it isn’t gomq to notice they are there until you tell it that they are The best way to do this is to issue the Diskchange Cll command, which was included with Workbench to solve a similar prob lem which occurs with 5.25 disk drives lust open the shell and type and all your problems should very rapidly be solved installed on my machine for some time and does get a lot of use, but I still occasionally resort to the Shell or Workbench for particular operations.
It. Or a utility like it (the Public Domain SI 1)2 for example) is certainly high on my list of utilities I would want with me should I Ik- stranded on a desert island with nothing but an Amiga and a very long extension cable.
LARGE PRINT From M. Coveney. Leatherhead, Surrey i am just writing to find out if there is an Amiga wordprocessor with a large print option as standard or as an add-on. I am very short sighted and this would be a great help to me.
Well, you can actually use any one of the 'page publishing' packages which allow you to use fonts other than the default Topaz one. Packages which fall into this category are Final Copy, Worduiorth and
F. xrrllrnie, as well as many others. Simply by choosing a
larger Amiga font for your text will cause it to be displayed
bigger on screen.
If you have a Workbench 2 or better machine vou might also be interested to know that you can change the system's default font using the Font program in the preferences drawer. It may clutter up your Workbench a bit. But at least you will know what programs you are running. Changing the default text can cause problems with menu options in some applications.
SAMPLE SOURCES From Adrian Rochdale, Manchester I am very keen on music and I am considering getting hold of a sound sampler such as Tcchnosound Turbo. What sort of devices can it be connected to in order to sample sounds? Is a sampler different from a MIDI interface?
Most samplers allow you to sample from a one-volt peak-to-peak audio source, such as those found on the 'Line Out' sockets of amplifiers, tape decks and CD players. You will not be able to connect it directly to a normal microphone - the signal will have to Ik- amplified first.
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and a MIDI interface for the Amiga will allow you to control external MIDI keyboards and other MIDI devices. It does not actually send or receive any sound data, just control information, and is used for operating a number of musical devices when recording (or playing live) because it does away with all the nasty musicians (who would probably play the wrong notes anyway).
A MIDI interface is entirely different from a sound sampler, although Microdeal do produce a combined unit. O jramming Books I Free Catalogue from Bruce Smith Books |a-Z Reference I Mark Smlddy 416 pages £21.95 n (end cheques payable 10): I Bruce Smith Books Ltd, Freepost 282.

Wc were deluged wilh calls on Tuesday August Slst, mostly from people eager to tell us they had seen a CD®*. Not only that, but on sale in Rumbelows to boot! It was rather like people writing to the Times to report hearing the first cuckoo of spring.
One particularly unfortunate bloke was so eager he actually went in and bought one. He was very happy with his new purchase until he got it home and opened it. Inside the box was one perfectly lovely CD32, a manual, a joypad and a power supply. And that was it. No software.
Wc told him that we had seen several items of software that were complete, and that it would only be a matter of time before they would be pressed up and in the shops. Not surprisingly, after just spending £300 on a games super-machine, our caller wasn't too consoled by the prospect of simply sitting and staring at his new toy for a few weeks.
Commodore promised us 18 games at launch for the CD32.
They haven't delivered. No one is less surprised than us. And no- one is more disappointed than us (except maybe the chap who bought his CD32 today).
Commodore can’t afford to mess this one up. It would be better to release the unit a few weeks later with software than earlier without. CD32 needs a good reputation, and it's already been tainted the day it went on sale.
% FROM THE ED A WORD SKID MORE There I was. Reading the October issue of AF. Wondering where I was going to gel ihe cash for an A1200 or CD32. I then put in the Covcrdisk and loaded the Skidmarks demo. All thought of an A1200 vanished as the gameplav smacked me in the teeth.
This is what we want, pure fun! Once I had sussed the controls the computer cars were easy to beat, best lap
10. 2 seconds.
So I went and got my mates, and a few beers later we were trying to blow each other into the weeds. The two player option is great, but what about a serial link? I think a lot of games programmers would Ire surprised to discover the amount of people who link up Amigas. How could MicroProse make such a stunning game as FI OP and not offer a serial link? We regularly play Vrnam, Lotus and Stunt Car Ram. Is Skidmarks going to be a full game? If so how do I get hold of it?
On the subject of Shareware, you said Mark Siblv was disappointed with the response to Cybemrtix. But Jell Minter and Bryan Bell got good responses to Uamatron and Charlie Chimp by offering a second disk to people who registered. This is the only way to make Shareware work.
If Vision had put out the demo of Skidmarks anti then asked for a fiver or a tenner for the full game I Iret they would have been swamped with replies. Since Mill llasic is going to be on the (arverdi.sk next month (wr front cover - Ed), what about Vision In October 1992 you reviewed Traders and to quote you: "If there's nothing else you fancy on the shelves this month, you could do a lot worse than this". I tried every week until Feb 93. When I finally contacted your mag since the reply I kept getting was ‘It hasn't been released vet'!!!
It is now almost September 93. A year later and I am still try ing to get a copy. Vou say your policy is that you don't review a game until it has been released. Then Traders should be on sale somewhere.
Any ideas w here?
Mrs C Cramp, Aldershot Skidmarks surely will he a complete game, and we’ll give more details of how you ran obtain it as soon as a distributor has been soiled out.
Ur agree entirely about it being a great luio-player game, and a serial link would make it better still. Hut the guys at Vision know what they're doing and the full version will have a serial link option, plus monster trucks that bounce and III tracks of racing mayhem!
As for Vision releasing the source code... you 11 have to ask them about that.
Iff don V claim to only review games when they are released, never have! What we say. And adhere to. Is that we don't review a game until it is complete. Traders was offering the source code to buyers of Skidmaiks for. Sav. An extra fiver on the price?
C Smiles, Midlothian NO TRADING WE'RE FAMOUS I know that you don't want any more letters about Amigas on TV. But I was wondering if you noticed that the May Amiga Format recently appeared on BB(. 1 It was on Saturday 21st of August about Spin. I he magazine was on one of those newspaper stands that are often found in railway stations, which w-as in the background of a scene being shown to advertise a program coming soon. Unfortunately the program looked terminally dull - perhaps they used Amiga Formal to brighten it up a bit. Do I win a prize for tin amazing observation?
Neil Adams, South Woodham Ferrers complete, and the company l.inel supplied it to us for review, prior to its release. Iff gair it a favourable review. But they decided it would not sell, and so they didn V release it. Were they wrong?
Write and tell Ihe development house.
Digital Integration, if you want to see Traders on the shelves. Contact them at: Watchmoor I’rade Centre Walchmoor Rd Carnberley Surrey (.1 15 .( . Ibis has to go under ’unconfirmed sightings’ because no-one we know actually saw it. But then on a Saturday, they 'd all In- out partying. So lie’ll give you Ihe benefit of the doubt. An AF T-shirt and pin-bculge are on then way to you.

''V'N
S. W.I.V. IS OK In the September 1993 issue of Amiga Formal it
was mentioned in the 50 Golden Greats feature that
S. IV. . V'. Was never updated to work on the A500 Plus, A600 or
the A1200.
However I own an A600 and have been able to enjoy playing it for months! I will point out that it isn't a pirate copy, it's 100 per cent original.
Has anyone else with the above machines noticed the same?
Karl Steward, Norfolk Rumour has it that there is an ECS- friendly version of S.W.I.V. in existence, but no matter how hard we try to get hold of a copy, we can never manage. And being the fierce empiricists we are, we won'( believe it until we've played it.
From what we've heard, and since we don't have a copy we can't test it ourselves, the ECS version doesn't work on an A1200.
S. W.I.V. RETURNS In the March issue you said Kick 1.3, the disk
that does the same job as a ROM sharer, would not work on the
A500 Plus. In the September issue, you said that the classic
shoot-em-up
S. W.I.V. would not work on a Plus or A600 and so was dead.
Have I got news for you! If you run Kick 1.3 (available from PD libraries) on your A500 Plus or A600, you get a message saying 'Unable to load KS 1.3 Plus: error code 121'. But take out the disk and reboot, and you now get the Kickstart 1.3 boot screen. Now you can play all those old classics that did not work before!
Jamie Hatswell, St Davids, Pembrokeshire Hmm. Thanks for the tip! We'll really have to give this a try ourselves... ABANDON (PIRATE) SHIP 1 am a 14-year-old kid who has read a lot about piracy in magazines. Firstly I would like lo say that one of the reasons the Amiga is selling so well as a games machine is that people don't have to pay that much to play a game. What I mean is that someone can grab a program like X-Copy Frofessional and a few- empty disks and instantly copy a game (unlike console owners). This is exactly why 1 bought my Amiga.
But after two years of reading your truly excellent magazine, I am slowly starting to realise what piracy is doing to the Amiga. I bet you that every single Amiga owner has a least one pirated game or program. 1 mean let's face it, you have £18 pocket money and are dying to buy a game when one of your friends has a cracked version, surely you're going to copy it. And then maybe buy it when you have enough cash.
I get £8 a week and that means that if 1 want to go to the cinema, go swimming, get a burger and buy Amiga Format as well, 1 really don't have enough left to buy games. How am I supposed to play the same game for two or three months without getting bored?
My parents only buy me serious programs, so it seems piracy is a must for someone my age. Unless you play demos from magazine Coverdisks, which is exactly what I’ve been doing since 1 began to wise up.
I hope software houses start selling good games for low prices, because nobodv wants the Amiga to die.
Nabil know you might trant lo remain anonymous because of your now-abandoned pirate ways, hut if you send us your address you can have a year's free subscription In Amiga Format. That should free up a bit of your pocket money to spend on some of the fabulous games that are available on budget these days.
Fust look at this month s budget pages: you’ll see Shadowlands, Midwinter 2 and Super Space Invaders all on offer for bargain prices. And keep playing the demos: last month's Skidmarks really is excellent fun in two-player mode (the computer cars are too slow to offer any real challenge), and this month's Zombies and Defender are superb fun.
MORE ANON This letter is to thank Anon from Issue 50's Utters pages. Following his example I have wiped my entire pirate collection (all thirty or so disks) and have vowed never to trade copied disks again.
However, I have a few questions.
Would disks labelled with the names of games be enough to arrest someone? Can you be arrested if you dob on friends and they accuse you, even if you have no disks left?
Thirdly, why is ELSPA so hy pocritical? First they tell us piracy is a bad thing, then they ban magazines from putting age-old games on their covers. The prospect of Kid Gloves or HombuzaI ruining major companies like Ocean and MicroProse is risible.
Banning such games is similar to banning Public Domain. The release of Hug Hash, an old full pricer, on 1 .icenceware shows that old games on Coverdisks are harmless, if not beneficial. An extra game on Coverdisks means that people don't need a pirate game.
Perhaps if the big companies released more of their games at £2.99 or as 1.icenceware, and FAST kept its nose out of harmless media, and the police teamed up with the Post Office and Telecom to find the owners of PO boxes and BBSs which convey pirated material, then the world would be a better place.
Another Anon You too can have a free sub if you just send us your name and address. Don V worry, neither we nor FAST are interested in the prosecution of ex-pirates. In fact I am sure that, like us. They would congratulate you on your decision.
As for the placing of games on magazine Coverdisks, that is an area where El SPA (for it is they, not FAST, that ban that particular activity) and we do not see eye to eye. EISPA believe that people only have a certain amount of lime every month lo dedicate to playing computer games, and that if they receive a freebie on a magazine they will not buy a game that month. Me beliei’e that people only have a certain amount of money to buy games, and that if they ran't afford all the games they want, some people will pirate the ones they can V afford. Hut EISPA is made up of all the lop software
companies, and they threaten lo stop sending us games to review and to pull their advertising if we give away complete games.
Some magazines have begun to ignore this ban, though, and play tricks to get full games on tlieir Coverdisks. If the EISPA members expect their ban to be taken seriously, they will have to take sanctions against these magazines.
All in all, kee i up the good, nonpiracy, work and use coverdisks and budget s to feed your game playing needs.
MINISTRY OF NOISE While I was listening to one of my heavy metal tapes I realised that the words to one of my favourite songs is a cheat to Sleepwalkrr. Near the start of Jesus Hu ill ly Hotrod by Ministry there are the words "Dingading dang my dangalong ling long". Which is the cheat, isn't it?
Damen Smith, Potters Bar Yes! Yes! Yes! The 'my dingaling a ding dang thing' thang ls indeed a lync from that song. Hut it isn V heaxy metal. The guys who coded Sleepwalker. John Scott and Dave I'ralt. Are big fans of Alien fourgensen s group Ministry.
SCRIBBLIMGS Way back in Issue 41 you gave away Scribble! On the Coverdisk. On the disk pages for this brilliant program there was a box called 'Expansion Potential' which said that you had arranged with HB Marketing to supply a supplementary disk with the spell checker and thesaurus and a full manual for just £9.99. Is this package still available and if so. How do 1 get hold of it? I rang the phone number in the mag and the line seems to be unobtainable.
Neil Lomas, Barnsley.
As you slate, that deal was offered “wa back" in Issue 41. And sadly, HUM who were offering it have since gone out of business, so it s no longer available.
WISE WORDS, MATE I have read with interest comments by Amiga users who have written to your magazine to complain about Commodore’s policy of releasing new machines, thereby leaving them behind in the ‘Gee whizz!' Stakes.
I feel that I can speak with some authority because 1 was one of those who bought an A500 Plus two Christmases ago. Since then, I have seen my machine go out of production and be replaced by the A600 at about half the price I paid originally, the AI200 at £1(X) less and. Just recently, the CD-'-. According to some people I should feel annoyed about all this, but do I? No.
Since I got my machine I have spent a not inconsiderable amount of money on it (all right, a whopping great amount, actually), upgrading it with a hard drive, an extra tlisk drive, extra RAM. A printer and so on.
Despite this significant outlay I do not feel cheated in anv wav.
I enjoy using my .Amiga, and I feel that it is the uses to which you put your computer, rather than the number of colours or the speed, which is the key factor. That's not to say that I would not love to have an A1200 equipped lo the same standard as my trusty A500 Plus - it's just that I don't especially need one.
I use my Amiga for playing games (say what you like, but pretty colours don't make a bad game any better - imagination, time and effort count far more). I also use it for word processing, a little DTP and a lot of graphics and programming. I even sent a game of mine in for you to review in your PD pages - JellyQuest.
Available now. Arcade puzzler fans!
READERS' LETTERS NOVEMBER 1993 There is no need to buy the best equipment just to inflate your ego - with a little imagination, the humble A500 ran give you everything you bought a computer for in the first place. Just because there's something better doesn't make what you have any worse.
No matter what your equipment, it's not how big or powerful it is that counts, it's what you do with it. Eh!
All I'm saying is. The Amiga's still the brilliant computer you bought.
David McGuire, Cumbernauld Totally right. Our advice is. Yes, Ihe A1200 is excellent but only upgrade if you really need to and if you've invested heavily in heaps of extras for your older machine you 're almost certainly better off sticking with it.
GO WEST Could you please help me with a little problem that I have? I really want to create my own text adventures on my Amiga. Do you know of any user- friendly. Easy to use and reliable text adventure creators in the public domain? I have tried a couple which, to say the least, were not very fruitful or successful.
William Haycock, Guildford Strangely, coincidentally, we only recently reviewed the I'D text adventure creator FRAC in Issue 47 and it's very excellent.
It s PDSoft Disk VH50, so telephone them on 0702-466973.
Continued overleaf THE MAN AT THE TOP Keen to increase communication between The Big C and the Amiga community, Commodore UK's General Manager David Pleasance will be replying your letters personally on a monthly basis.
Champagne celebration Champagne, anyone? Yes, I'm celebrating the release of the new Amiga CD32 console. Commodore have made the move that every Amiga owner has been dreaming of.
The CD32 really does give us something to shove down the throats of our younger console owner siblings, who up to now thought that Sega and Nintendo were the definition of 'video games machine'. Here's to the downfall of the wretched shiny black Japanese cardboard box known as the Mega CD.
I have an A500, and am seriously considering buying an A1200.
The price is certainly enticing, but what really excites me is the AGA chip set, and the idea of AGA-only games. After reading about how Pinball Fantasies is being revitalised for the CD32, will they also bring out an AGA version for the A12007 I'm hoping that the CD32 will not mean that programmers forget about the A1200 and stop making enhanced games for it. Or will CD32 mean more AGA games for the A1200?
Steven Laurence, Celbridge I am reliably informed that A1200 AGA versions of almost all products developed for Amiga CD33 will be released. With Commodore having decided to only market 32-bit (minimum) technology, the publishers are clear about what platforms to support.
More Amigas?
While reading Issue 49 of Amiga Format I read, to some confusion, that Commodore are to bring out yet another Amiga, this being the CD-based console thingy. What are they playing at?
I bought my Amiga 1500* confidently after a friend bought the then-brand-new A500 Plus, only to find that a year or two later our computers are out of production. When the Pluses came out it was said these new models would last for at least a couple of years. Now Commodore have done the same thing with the A600; that has been out for a year and already it is being dropped.
I would like to buy a 32-bit model, but can I trust Commodore to keep one model going for long enough to make it worthwhile?
Alastair Pugh, Norfolk While I have empathy for your feelings, I must point out to you that technology cannot and will not stand still. Just look at MS-DOS machines, with XT, 286, 386, 486, 586, etc, all being released very quickly In succession and each more powerful a format retailing at less than its predecessor.
The Amiga CD33 is a games console and the A1200 is a home computer. The A4000 has the most powerful chip set available. The choice is yours. 32-bit technology has never been cheaper - don't wait buy now and enjoy it.

trust IF YOU READ our feature on 3D modelling in Issue 49, you
are probably dying to give it a go. The problem with 3D
programs is that the good ones are very expensive. Although
anyone who has used one will tell you that they are worth every
penny, it's difficult to appreciate the fact if you have never
used one.
So next month we'll be giving you a special working version of Activa International's superb 3D package, Real 3D 2.
Real 3D 2 Junior is the perfect introduction to 3D ray-tracing.
And we'll be running a full series of tutorials to help you get the best from this superb package.
The full package scored a massive 96 per cent in Issue 46 of Amiga Format. And since its release it has come to be regarded as the best 3D package there is.
If you want to try your hand at 3D, you have to get your hands on next month's Amiga Format.
