COMMAND EARTH’S FORCES UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTION 643-2(C) CLASSIFIED For Your Eyes Only - Read & Destroy Re: Formation of Covert UN Combat Unit Date of Inception: 1-1-1999 Name: Extraterrestrial Combat Unit (XCom) The Threat: The ever increasing appearance of hostile Alien craft. The indiscriminate landings; the terrorising and disappearance of civilians. The hysteria generated among the local population.
The Task: To combat the Alien threat by scanning, tracking and intercepting all UFOs. To research superior alien technologies and apply that knowledge for manufacture of advanced weapons and craft to be used against the aggressors.
The Base: A secret base (Alpha One) has been equipped with two leased Interceptors, a Skyranger transport jet and scientists, engineers and soldiers. The base will have to be enlarged and other bases MUST be built (see Finance).
The Finance: Xcom will exist entirely on world government funding. Each nation will allocate funds dependent on the Xcom monthly results in their specific area.
Governments reserve the right to withdraw or reduce funds, at any time.
Defend • Learn • Vanquish Miami forth Bmer.ta PUHOS» S5133 100 AGAINST THE ALIEN TERROR
1999. You are in control of Xcom; charged by the world’s leaders
to strike at the alien menace that’s terrorising the Earth.
At first, you’ll scan, track and shoot down the slower UFOs, but that will just be the beginning. Whenever a UFO crashes, or lands, you must be there; leading a squad of armed soldiers from building to building, from street to street, using all your tactical skills to capture or destroy the aliens.
If you succeed in your first missions, your scientists and engineers will copy the alien technology to create more powerful weapons and craft for your forces to use.
Gradually, you’ll build up a terrifying picture of this Unknown Enemy, and their real aims and desires, then you’ll have to work out a strategy to stop them.
One thing is certain - it won’t be easy!

music package of all time is yours! The package was so good
that we devoted an entire Amiga Format cover to it when it was
released.
What are you waiting for?
Get it loaded up!
Music X is the program to realise your potential as a musician. And let's face it, if Two Untalented can be huge international stars, there's no reason why you can't!
And once you've got the serious stuff over with, we have a great demo of ICE's conversion of Total Carnage. The coin-op is a total blast, and so is this demo!
Plus a fun wee game called Dozer.
Both these programs are excellent, but wait until you try ProVector3. It is stunning. Not only do we have a demo of ProVector3, but we have the full version
2. 1 of this superb package.
YOU The power to create truly great graphics is yours, with ProVector.
The Month It's been another hectic month in the office. I've been forced to watch star Trek 6, and made to play Microcosm. It's all too much. I'm just glad I've got Soccer Kid on my hard disk.
WHAT A MONTH n's been. Once more Wordworth escapes our reviewers’ inspection, because Digita are still putting the finishing touches to it.
The most excitement in the Amiga Format office this month has been generated by Lightrave.
The Lightwave 3D software, part of the Video Toaster package, has long been recognised as the finest Amiga ray-tracing program. The problem was, that you had to have a Video Toaster to run it.
When we heard that a small US software company called Warm and Fuzzy Logic had created a program to enable non-Toaster Amigas to run Lightwave, we expected Toaster manufacturers NewTek to hit them with a law suit of titanic proportions. But this hasn't happened. NewTek have seized the opportunity to sell their fine software into areas where the Toaster is not common, such as the UK. So now. For the first time. Lightwave is on sale in this country. It’s awesome, but so is the price - nearly £800.
The rest of the team were too busy to watch Star Trek 6. So I did.
It's a tough job. But somebody's got to do it.
Try as I might to work this month. I've spent a lot of time playing games. Latte in February, Psygnosis' Microcosm hit my desk. To describe this game as eagerly-awaited would be to describe the pyramids as pointy. I snatched the package from the postman and ripped it open in seconds.
Psygnosis had told everyone that a fab T-shirt and audio CD would be included with the package.
They aren't and it costs £45. Who are they trying to kid? This is a rip off to be sure.
Although the game itself is OK (I've played worse on CD-'2), the graphics, animation and music are awesome. This is the Shadow of the Beast of the CD32. Not a great game (better than Beast).
But a superb advert for CD3-. If your Segtendo- owning mates come to your house and see this, they'll dump their Jap-crap in the bin.
Bui it has been Chrysalis’ great Soccer Kiti (.1 51 93 per rent ). That has been taking most of my time. After sorting out the crashing problems on my A4000. The convenience of having a hard drive-installed platform game just three seconds loading time away offers great solace when the dreaded writers' block strikes.
Rumour has it that this game didn't sell well, despite huge scores all round, spending just two months in the AF chart, and peaking at number 1(1. If you didn't buy it, get it now, it's a classic.
Another game that didn't live up to sales expectations is Uridium 2 (.4 53 94 per cent). What is wrong with you people? Coders spend ages making great games, then you buy Mortal Kombat, and Jurassic Park. Anybody would think that you aren't highly intelligent, self-motivated individuals, but a bunch of hype-manipulated sheep.
I was so excited by the arrival of Lightrave, I forgot to have my lunch-time game of pinball.
Much of this month has been spent in the cupboard, our fond term for our little back room.
It is little. Small. We put our copy of AdPro 25 in there, and it was full. But the bijou and compact nature ol the cupboard didn't stop us crowding in there to watch Star Trek 6 - The Undiscovered Country.
We gasped as the Enterprise NCC 170IB left space dock, we felt all warm and cuddly inside its the proud and noble Klingons forged lasting peace with the Federation. But what really impressed us was that all this entertainment value was being gleaned from two Cds. Price £15.99. Full Motion Video has arrived, and it's great.
But there’s a downside. Commodore are so impressed with FMV. That they are not prepared to produce an A1200 CD drive that can't handle it.
They have concluded that it is not possible to produce an A1200 CD drive that can handle it. So they aren't going to produce an AI200 CD drive at all.
Commodore support their argument by saying that AI200 owners would feel conned when FMV games start appearing.
Who are they trying to kid? FMV games aren't going to start appearing. The FMV unit is a £200 add on to a £300 console. Less than 20 per cent of CD32 owners will have an FMV unit, so software companies won't develop for it. Commodore are missing an opportunity to expand their CD market by not producing a non-F.MV A1200 CD drive.
Next month's Coverdisk will have a new mission for Syndicate users, and we’ll be offering readers the opportunity to buy the full 20-mission disk for a bargain price. If this causes the same stir in the office that Syndicate did, I'm gonna have to crack the whip next month to get the writers to stop playing and start reviewing.
Enough small talk, I have a right riveting game of Soccer Kid waiting for me. See ya! Zj Experience the thrill ol playing in the world's premier golfing evenl.You must gel every detail spot-on to keep up with the calibre of players you'll be going round with.
Ryder Cup Golf leaves nothing out. It gives you the chance to analyse every course, every hole and every shot.
The incredible delailoi the courses themselves add to Ihe feeling of actually being out on the course, being one of the team and taking part in one of Ihe sport's greatest events.
Ihe mechanics ol the swings from the tee to green have been intricately studied and replicated to make the game as close as possible to the real thing.
Ryder Cup Golf plays with startling speed and detail so real you can almost smell Ihe grass.
In 1926, at Wentworth, England, a match took place between two teams of professional golfers from the USA and GREAT BRITAIN.
The result was a convincing win for the British. The match was the brainchild of two men; Walter Hagen ¦ an American golfing legend - and Samuel Ryder, a wealthy English businessman.
The competition took place under the rules of the EGA. And the winning team received a trophy, kindly donated by Samuel Ryder.
This was the beginning of the Ryder Cup.
Compete with the professionals on the prestigious Belfry or try your clubs on any of the other Ihree courses.

Powerful graphics package, but it may be different to anything you've used before, unlike DeluxePaint, ProVector is a structured drawing package, and there are some very convincing advantages to working with a program like this. Marcus Dyson discovers just what they are... A LOOK AT PROVECTOR'S CONTROL PANEL GRID ON OFF. Toggles a visible grid which can be used to help composition or alignment.
MAGNETISM. An object can be made to 'attract' the points of another object.
MAGNIFICATION. After clicking on the magnify icon, clicking and dragging around an area on screen will expand that area up to full screen.
GRID SNAP. When activated, this makes points align with the nearest grid line. It works whether the grid is visible or not.
TEXT. This enables you to add text to your pictures. Ideal for creating logos.
CLOSE FILL. If this gadget is selected, any object that is drawn will have its first and last points joined, and be filled with the current colour.
FREEHAND. This draws a freehand shape wherever you drag the mouse.
6 Double-click on the AF58B disk icon when it appears.
7 Double-click on the ProVector Install icon, and have the disk called ProVector ready to insert when prompted to do so.
STRAIGHT CURVE TOOL. This allows the drawing of complex irregular shapes made up of straight and curved lines. It is by far the most useful tool.
DELETE. Clicking on this gadget will erase any objects which are currently active.
MOVE. This gadget enables you to click and drag on an object to move it around your picture.
SCALE. After clicking on this gadget, click dragging on a selected item will scale it up or down.
DRAWING TOOLS. These gadgets draw polygons, smooth polygons, rectangles and ellipses.
SELECT. This gadget must be selected to click on any part of the picture and make it 'active'.
DUPLICATE. This gadget works like the move tool, but instead of moving an object, it moves a copy, and leaves the original where it was.
8 When it has finished, it will tell you so. Now you can follow the same procedure again and install the ProVector3 demo.
9Double-click on your installed ProVector disk _ icon, then again on the ProVector. Ffp ProVector program icon (left) to launch ProVector.
9Take a look at the ProVector2.1 control panel on the right, then flip the page to try a few simple familiarisation exercises to get you started in structured drawing.
ROTATE. Any selected object may be rotated by clicking on this gadget, and then clicking and dragging on the object.
APPLY STYLE. Clicking on this gadget will apply the currently selected fill and border styles to the currently active object(s). A combination of this and the Straight Curve line tool are all you really need to create a picture in ProVector.
GROUP UNGROUP. Two or more objects may be grouped so that they can be moved, manipulated, sent backwards or brought forwards as one object.
DEPTH GADGETS. Objects can be sent backwards, or brought forwards to create the correct sense of depth in a picture URGENT! READ THIS!
To install and use your full ProVector2.1 program and your demos of StylusTrace and ProVector3, follow these simple instructions.
1 Obtain two floppy disks which have nothing on them that you want to keep.
2 Format both the disks. Call one of them ProVector, call the other ProVector3 Demo.
3 Insert your Workbench disk and allow Workbench to load.
4 Insert your copy of 4F58B, the ProVector Coverdisk.
B+8 8+B 4 4 Be STRUCTURED DRAWING IS most often used in conjunction with desktop publishing programs. There are good reasons for this, but that doesn't mean that it isn't ideal for lots of other purposes. The most important thing to remember about structured (or vector) drawings is that, unlike bitmap images, they are not made up of lots of little coloured squares, or pixels.
Instead, structured drawings are described mathematically. You don’t have to worry about the maths, after all that's what computers are best at.
But it's good to know what the benefits of this method of storing a picture are.
When a bitmap picture is enlarged, all the pixels that make up the picture are enlarged too. So a picture that looked smooth' when it was viewed very small, becomes block'. Or pixelated. When a structured drawing is enlarged, the computer recalculates the best way to draw it. And sends this information to the printer, so the drawing is always smooth. Look at the pictures ol the circles below, the red circle is a bitmap picture, see what happens when it is enlarged. The blue circle is a structured drawing. When it is enlarged, it still looks very good.
HOW TO USB YOUR COVERDISKS APRIL 1 994 Another advantage of structured drawings is that they can be edited, even after they have been finished. OK. So can bitmap drawings. But all the elements of a structured drawing remain 'discrete'. That doesn’t mean that they don’t sell the story of their celebrity love affairs to the Scumday papers, it means that they stay as separate, individual objects, so that at any lime, you may edit, delete, change the colour or bring forward (or send back)' any item.
This takes a bit of getting used to. I know that when I started using structured drawing programs.
I preferred bitmap packages, and it took me a while to realise the benefits of packages such as ProVector Now I would be as lost without PmVeelor as I would without BriUianre on my hard drive.
The third advantage of structured images is their size. ,- s I mentioned earlier, bitmap images pixelate when enlarged, so to make a high-quality bitmap image, to print at say Idem by 6cm. It would require a file of over 2Mb in size. But a structured image of just 20 or 30K can be enlarged to any size without loss of quality.
One of the most common uses for structured images is the design of logos. Simple images such as the Amiga Formal logo appear many times in each issue, every time at a different size, or in a different colour. Bv designing them in a structured package we save ourselves time (anti hard drive space). Other elements of this issue, such as the ChartBusters logo on page 93 are also designed in a structured drawing package.
Enjoy ProVector. And do try the demo of ProVector X The latest version of the package, due for completion in the near future, has AGA support. An even friendlier user interface and a host of new features. We'll be bringing our readers a special deal on the new version as soon as it's complete. Watch these pages.
1. SETTING THE PAGE The first thing we need to learn to do in
ProVector is define our document. Depress the right mouse
button, and drag to the Page Prefs option on the Misc Menu,
then release the button. You will be presented with this
requester box: Full Vieu *;Z Disp Prefs. . .

2. 94 UK I Check the A4 box, and the CM unit box (Americans still
use inches).
Now click on the Grid On icon: Then click on the magnifying glass: Ck
2. CREATING AN OBJECT The drawing tools are in the second part of
Pro Vector's control panel: Try clicking on any of them, and
then clicking and dragging on the picture area.
Different tools have different effects. If you get stuck on any tool, double-clicking will complete the object. If you don't like the object you have created, just hit the Del key on your keyboard, and it will be deleted.
If the object you want to delete does not disappear, that is because it is not active. Click on the selection tool: Then click on the object you have drawn. A series of points, or handles, should appear round the perimeter of a selected object. Once an object is active, you can delete it.
At present, all the objects you are creating should be filled with black. This is because the Close Fill tool is active: .
3. ADDING A LITTLE COLOUR Any object we draw in ProVector will
not be visible unless we give it a border, and or a fill
colour.
In ProVector2.1 these attributes are chosen from two separate, but very similar menus. Pressing Right Amiga-F calls up the Fill Menu: 1 i ?
_
- J B'i 3 1 IH 1 ¦ 1 ¦ ¦¦HI ¦1 IH 1 H a Z 11 1 _ z I _ I _ ID _ _
_ .
__, I z. I 1 ~~ _ .
‘ ’ ' _ __ _ i .
' z I T“ Z3 _ z ¦ _ _ _ __ z z - F _ z = - - -T , - _ j ’ Now click, and drag from the left-hand side of the white area, down to the right side, making an area that is about 1.5 times as wide as it is tall.
When you've done this, your screen should look something like this: This has zoomed in on our work area. ProVector can zoom up to 1200 times actual size.
If, once we begin drawing, you want to zoom out again and see the whole picture, just press the Right Amiga key and Z simultaneously.
If you click on this tool to deselect it (it will stop being highlighted) then draw an object it will not have any fill.
Many of the drawing tools have options that may be accessed by shift-clicking on the appropriate icon. To create a circle, we must use the ellipse tool. Hold down the shift key. And click on the Ellipse icon: m .
You will get a requester window like this: ?I Ellipse controls Rrc 1r on: Rrc to: * Draw fron: I 5i --1 Cane eI t
4. GETTING MANIPULATIVE Once you have created an object Pro
Vector has many tools for manipulating it. First of all. Make
sure you have a filled circle. If you haven't, follow boxes
1-3.
Now dick on the Group tool. Both the objects will now be joined together as one object.
O TOO MUCH TO HANDLE There are many more features to Pro Vector than we can ever hope to go into here. These include: Now draw another circle on top of your current circle, then use the Border and Fill requesters to fill it a light grey, with a narrow dark grey border. Remember, you won’t be able to apply a fill style to your new circle unless the Close Fill gadget is active.
O o Now using the Selection tool, dick on the small circle, and then Shift- Click on the big circle, so that both are selected.
5. DRAWING A CONCLUSION Now we have some wheels, we had better
produce a car body. This is the tricky bit as BL proved when
they produced the svelte lines of the Allegro. By far the best
tool to use for this is the Straight Curve tool: Describing
the function of this tool is more than a little difficult, but
we'll have a go. If you click, then move the mouse pointer and
click again, the tool will draw a straight line between the
location of your first and second click. But if. While you
are holding down the mouse button for the second click, you
move the mouse, the line will bend and form a curve. Once you
have bent the Now click on the Duplicate tool: and drag your
circle to the right a q 1 little way. You will now have two
sets of grouped circles, these will be the wheel of a car we
are going to draw.
O o curve into the shape you desire, clicking again will draw the curved line you have prescribed.
You can then dick again to draw the next line, or dick and drag to draw a new curve. See, I said it was difficult to describe. Experiment with it.
O o Once you get the hang of the Straight Curve tool, draw yourself a car body. I have imitated the timeless lines of Adolf Hitler's design for the VW.
• Full Arexx support
• User configurable tools
• Power clone and power rotate options
• Layer control
• Plotter and postscript printer support
• Import IFF for tracing
• On-line help
• Keyboard short cuts We will be doing occasional tutorials to
help you master these functions. Until then, don't be afraid to
play with ProVector. If you've followed these pages, you have
the basics of making the program work. Most of the rest of the
functions work in a very similar fashion to those we have used
here. Remember to make sure you have an item selected before
you try to manipulate it then be sure to click on the right
icon for the operation you want to do.
It really isn't very difficult to get great results with ProVector. The picture of the girly with the green monade-type device on the first page of this section was produced on my first ever sitting with the program. It is a copy of a scene from the Dominion Tank Police video from Manga (O Manga Video, thanks for their kind permission). Buy it it's great.
By far the best way to get more out of ProVector is to upgrade to the new version, which will be available soon.
We've included a demo of Version 3 on this month's Coverdisk for you to try out. It offers full AGA support (256 colours on screen), an improved user interface and a full and comprehensive manual of all of ProVector'i features.
As soon as ProVector3 is available, we'll be
6. FINISHING TOUCHES - Now we have the basic shape of our car.
But it doesn't look very good, does it? Don't worry, a few
simple touches will improve it immeasurably.
First draw a black rectangle over the top half of the wheel, then use the Duplicate tool to move a copy of it over the rear wheel. Like this: Now (while these rectangles are active) use the Depth gadget to Lmj send the black rectangle behind the car. Just keep pressing it and see what happens.
You should end up with a picture that looks something like this:
o o Now use the Ellipse tool and the Rectangle tool: j to add a
few details such as the door and handle.
Now we are ready to add the windows. Use the Straight Curve tool to draw two (or however many you want) shapes, where you want the car windows to be. Use the Selection tool and the Shift button to make both the car body, and the new window shapes active. Now use the right mouse button to select Merge on the Misc menu.
O O
o o Your car body, and windows should join together to make one
shape.
O o If your car body changes colour, that is because the current Fill Colour is different to the original one you used for your car.
Here's a little tip, press Right Amiga-U to undo the Merge. Then shift click on the Apply Style menu, then click on the car body. This will make the car's fill and border attributes the currently active ones. If you perform Merge again, the car will stay the colour you want it to be.
rv , NEXT MONTH: We’ll take a look at some more Projector functions, and how to perform them.
IaSrf *]» Wh • ProVe tor2 is an extremely capable package. It has one or two quirks which some users find confus- ProVector3 tackles these quirks with a new
t. The addition of AGA support and several functions promise to
make it the Amiga's best structured drawing package.
Offering an upgrade deal here in Amiga Format, keep your eyes peeled.
APOLOGIES Also included on this month's coverdisk is a demo of another Stylus program. StylusTrace.
The program imports bitmaps, and then traces them for importing into ProVector. We have used the demo, and it is very good. But we have had some problems running the demo on some machines. Sorry, we can't be more specific it runs on our 4000 030. But not our 4000 040. It runs on an A3000. But not our 1200. Your guess is as good as ours. But we can assure you, that when this program is commercially released, it will work with all current model Amigas.
If your copy doesn't work, don't be too upset it is only a demo, and would not add to the functionality of your ProVector disk.

RUNNING MUSIC-X WITH 512K Although Music-X will run on 512K machines, you really need more memory to get the most out of it. Having less memory to play with restricts the amount of sample data you can load and use. Because Music-X grabs as much Chip RAM as possible for sequencing.
MIDI users will be better off, because having no samples to worry about you'll be able to enter more MIDI data into the sequencer, but for serious use we urge you to splash out about £20 on memory expansion. In the meantime. You should make sure that the Workbench option in the Options menu is turned off (doesn't have a tick next to it).
Find that the balance isn't quite right for your own particular needs, then just change the number in the Buffer statement.
All you budding musicians are in for a real treat with this month's fantastic Coverdisk. Future Music reviews editor Maff Evans takes you through the basics of Music-X to put you in tune with this amazing sequencer program.
CO INTO AMY studio worth its salt and you'll no doubt see a computer sitting at die heart of the operation. That's because most of the machines used there will be linked to it via MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), die language used by electronic instruments and computers to talk to each other. To control the machines from your computer, you need a sequencer. Music-X is a full MIDI sequencing package for controlling svnthesi ers, drum machines and other MIDI equipment, and creating songs using internal Amiga samples. Over the next five pages, we show you the basics and give you
two tutorials to gel you creating music on your Amiga.
SETTING UP GEAR All you need to run Music-X is an Amiga. .Sounds obvious, but a lot of people think you need a rack of extra equipment to use a sequencer. If you've got some MIDI equipment to play with then you have a hit more scope, but you can get started with just your Amiga and a few samples on disk.
If it's possible, we recommend that you plav the sound from the Amiga through a hi-fi system.
To do this you need to get a cable dial allows you to play the Amiga sound in mono (both .Amiga outputs being played through both speakers at all times). Since Music-X plays samples out of die first available audio channel, it makes them jump from side-to-side in a most disconcerting fashion.
If you've got a MIDI-equipped keyboard, then get vourself a MIDI interlace (about 120) and connect the MIDI Out from the interface to the MIDI in of your keyboard and the MIDI Out from the keyboard to the MIDI In of the interface. Now you're ready to start making music.
• II you already know your way around Music-A” then you'll know
what Filler and Librarian pages are. They are used for more
advanced operations involving storing Sysex data and routing
MIDI signals. For more in-depth info, die makers of Afalso
produce a dedicated hi-tech music magazine. Futuir Music, which
will Ik- running advanced tutorials.

Coverdisk is a full MIDI sequencing package. Use it to control
synthesizers, drum machines and other MIDI equipment or to
create tracks with the internal Amiga samples. Boot up and find
out why Music-X is the best.
USING MUSIC-X ON AN A1200 When Music-X loads, the first thing it does is attempt to grab as much Chip RAM as possible for storing sequence data. Because the A1200 has two megabytes of Chip RAM. Music-X gets a bit confused and tries to use the memory twice, causing the program to lock up when you select any functions.
Don't worry though - you can get around this. First make a copy of the Music-X disk (see the instructions on page 21) and stick the copy in the drive with Workbench loaded. Open the Music-X disk and select the Music-X icon. Go to the Icons menu and select Information. Click on New under the Tool Types window and enter 3UFFQU6000 BEFORE YOU START Before you can start using your Music-X Coverdisk. You must decompress it on to two formatted disks. To do so, boot up the Music-X Coverdisk. After a while the Workbench screen will appear. When it does. Double-click on the disk icon and a window will
open with two more icons in it. These represent scripts for decompressing the disk.
Double-click on one of the icons. A new window will open and the disk light will come on while files are copied to RAM. You will then be asked to insert a blank disk. Do so and press Return. The data will now decompress on to your new floppy. Repeat this decompressing procedure for the second disk and you're ready to go.
This will create a memory buffer that Music-X won't be able to grab. This should give you enough sample memory to play with, but will still allow the program to run normally. If you 2 Drun Pattern 2 Bass Pattern 2 (lav pattern 2 Sakuhachi in

"Tljp FRIT PA tZ C Most of the work carried out In Music-X will be done ¦ CL 1 I rMVaC on this section-the Edit page There are two edit screens the Bar Editor which shows data in a graphical format, and the Event Editor which shows data as midi messages and numbers (used for more precise detail editing) On the Bar Editor you carry out changes using the mouse With the Event Editor you actually type the data into the exact location TIME SIGNATURE DISPLAY: Shows the current time signature.
ADD • Used tor adding events in a sequence using the mouse. When you dick on Add a window asks which type to add. Select, then dick OK. To add new events in the Event editor, dick on Oup to make a new copy of the selected event.
INSERT- Works in the same way as the Add function, except that the end point is advanced by the duration of any notes you add.
MOVE*: Used for dragging events around with the mouse like you do in Add and Insert mode, except that you can't enter new data.
REMOVE: Causes any events clicked on to be deleted from a sequence.
SCULPT*: Enables you to drag the mouse across the screen and draw the settings of controller information required. A window will ask what kind of data you want to edit.
LOCK*: Enables you to 'lock' MIDI channels. To do this, dick on the number in the block at the bottom of the screen. Click on it again to unlock it or select Bar or Event from the Edit menu to unlock all channels.
SELECT: Lets you select a group of events by binding them in a box (just click on them in Event edit). These will remain selected until you unmark them or enter another mode.
MARK*: Works like Select except that you drag a horizontal select area across the screen to set start and end mark points.
UNMARK: Deselects any selected events.
ZOOM . ZOOM-*: Zooms In or out of the display.
SNAP*: Restricts and moves, additions. And paste operations to the settings in the Grid window. This also allows you to move and resize notes using the cursor keys. Use the cursors to move, and shift with left and right to resize them by the current grid and duration amounts.
QUIET: Stops the audible feedback that occurs when notes are dragged around the screen.
SCROLL: When selected, this causes the screen to scroll to keep the play position marker on screen.
GRID: Calls up a window for setting the grid snap and note durations. Set the values by using the sliders or by clicking on the type of note to use.
PARAMS: Enables you to edit the playback parameters. To change tempo use the slider. Change the time sig the same way as on the main sequencer page. Click on Enable Sync to enable the edit page to use the sync settings on the main sequencer page. Play in context plays the sequence back with the others, delaying the start of It by the amount in the Start slider. Remap T S maps the selected time tig to the musk data already produced, rather than adding or subtracting beats to get the bars to the right length.
REPEAT: Causes the sequence to repeat from the beginning when the yellow end marker is reached. Useful for looping sequences.
UNDO (Event edit only): Returns the current event to its original state, unless you move the cursor away, which In effect confirms the edits.
EVENT PAGE 1 EVENT LIST - This is where all the MIDI event data is shown, with event number, the time of the event, the MIDI channel, the event type and the data corresponding to the event.
2 CHANNEL • Click on these to select the required channel for the currently selected event.
3 EVENT TYPES - Click on the required event type to change the selected event to that type.
4 TOOL LIST - The edit functions for the screen are shown here (see the box for more info).
5 STEP BACK - These work in the same way as the step and back controls in the Bar Editor.
6 VALUE SLIDERS enable you to edit the attributes of the selected event. For notes, these sliders show Attack Velocity (AVL) and Release Velocity (RVL). But the data types change depending on what type of event you have selected.
7 TRANSPORT CONTROLS - These work in the same way as the controls on the Bar Editor.
CREATING A SONG USING SAMPLES This tutorial shows you the basics of how to create a song with Music-X using internal samples. You will need some samples on disk (either in IFF or Sonix format), covering kick drum, snare drum, bass and melody sounds.
Load up Music-X and select the I Metronome Sequence. Click on the Delete button to erase the sequence. You will now have a clean palette to start creating a song.
2 Go to the Mode menu and select Amiga Samples. Click on Metrotick.Sample and select Load Sample from the File menu, choosing the required format of your kick drum sample. When the file requester pops up. Swap the Music-X disk in the drive for your sample disk and click on DFO: (hard drive users should select the required partition). If the sample is in a drawer, double click on a drawer to open it then double click on the sample to load it.
3 Press C on the keyboard to hear the sample. If it's out of tune (or won't play) then drag the Tuning slider so that it sounds right. If the sound cuts off too soon, then drag the last point on the envelope window to the right. When you're happy with the sample (pressing C to check) click on the next channel in the list.
Load up your sounds in the following order: Ch2 - snare drum. Ch3 - bass, Ch4, melody.
4 Go to the Mode menu and select Sequencer. Click on the first sequence in the list and click on the Edit button to bring up the bar editor. Go to the right of the screen and click on Zoom* a couple of times to zoom in on the display. Now we need to set the grid up so that we can enter 16th notes.
S Click on Grid in the right hand panel and choose the symbol shown on the picture for both Grid Size and Duration. The numbers should both read 48 on the sliders.
When you've done this click on OK to exit the window.
6 Now we need to set up the editor so that the output plays from the Amiga rather than MIDI. Go to the Options menu and set both Feedback and Output to Amiga (they should both be checked). Add Notes mode should already be selected, but check this by clicking on Add in the right hand panel, then click on Notes and OK.
7 Move to the left of the Grid Edit window and hold down the left button so that a note appears on screen and you hear your kick drum.
Drag it up and down until the tuning sounds right then release the mouse button. Enter three more beats on the other beats of the bar (next to the solid lines) to create a 474 kick pattern.
8 Now we're ready to enter the snare beats. Click on 02 in the box at the bottom of the screen to select channel two (which should be the snare sound if you've followed the instructions). Go to beat .2 and hold down the left button. Again, tune the sample by dragging up or down until it sounds right, then let go. Place more snare beats at the same tuning at the positions shown on the picture.
9 Click on Zoom- to zoom out a little and make sure the end marker (the yellow line) is on the first beat of bar two (on the solid line next to 002). Make sure Repeat is highlighted at the bottom of the column on the right and click on Play in the transport panel to hear your drum sequence. Good, isn't it? Click on Stop when you're chuffed enough.
D| Go to the File menu and I select Exit. A requester will pop up telling you that you've changed the sequence. Click on Store to store the data in the sequence and return to the Sequencer page. Click on the Sequence Name section of the list next to your sequence, delete the word Untitled and enter the name Drum Pattern, then press Return.
Now we want a pattern that ¦ is just kick drums, so go to the Options menu and select Extract Sequence. A window will pop up asking you what you want to extract, so click on 01 and then OK. Select the second sequence in the list and click on Store to store the extracted data.
When the data has been stored, rename the sequence Kick Drums.
Now we want to create a mmm bassline. Go to sequence three in the list and click on Edit.
Again, make sure that the Feedback and Output are set to Amiga. Click on channel 03 at the bottom of the screen to select your bass sound.
Click on Zoom- to zoom out once and drag the yellow end marker to the beginning of bar three (003). That should give us enough room to work with.
HOW TO USE YOUR COVERDISKS APRIL 1 994 RECORDING MIDI INFORMATION This is a Brief description of how to record data into Music-x from a midi keyboard.
Iplug your MIDI keyboard in as described in the instructions and load up Music-X. Select the Metronome Sequence and click on Edit to go to the edit screen. Click on the first of the four click notes and press the up cursor two or three times to move it up. Select Exit from the File menu and click on Store to store the changes. This will make it easier to hear the bar changes in the metronome.
2 Click on the second sequence in the list then click on record.
Get ready to start playing then click on go. After a two bar count-in. Start playing along with the metronome until you've got your tune in. Click on Stop then click on Store to store it in the recorded data in the second sequence (unless you're not happy, in which case you should repeat the recording process again.
GM Click on the «» column I 7 for all the sequences apart from the latest main sequence so that they read “Off" (the Main sequence should read ”00000”). Now click on Play to hear your finished song. How's that for your first masterpiece? If you want to change the speed a bit just move the Tempo slider until it sounds good. Oops!
Better save it before anything happens.
« Enter a two-bar bassline by dropping notes in the right place using the right mouse button and dragging them to the right spot.
It you can't think of one then just copy the one in the picture. If you make a mistake, then select the incorrect note, hold down the right Amiga key and press D to delete it.
When you've finished, select Exit from the File menu and dick on Store. Name the sequence Bassline.
Add a new sequence by I clicking the mouse button and press the down cursor until it reads "»2 Kick Drums”. Use the left and right cursor keys (without shift) to move it to bar 003 and stretch it using right cursor and shift until it is two bars long. Add a new sequence and change it to ”S1 Drum Pattern”, then move it to just after the kick drum sequence and stretch it to the end of the bassline.
Gfl t When you've finished, select ¦ v Exit from the File menu, click on STORE and name the sequence Melody. Now it's time to construct the whole thing into a song. Select the next sequence and click on Edit. Go to the Grid option on the right and set the Grid Size and Duration to the maximum values by moving both sliders all the way to the right (they should both read 768).
3 Click on Edit to call up the edit window and press Play to hear your tune. If the timing is a bit astray, select Quantize from the Modules menu, set the thresholds, click on All, then on Quantize to correct it. You can also use the Move and Sculpt tools to change notes and control data if you wish. Select Exit from the File menu and click on STORE to store the sequence. Enter a new name on the sequencer list.
That's all there is to it really.
You can now record more tracks in the same way or via the Edit window if you prefer (this works in pretty much the same way). When you come to save your performance, all you need to have selected is Sequences and Time Parameters (for the tempo). That's it. With these two tutorials mastered you should now be able to create your own masterpieces.
Time for th* melody. Select ¦ ®9P the neict sequence and click on Edit. Set the Feedback and Output to Amiga and click on channel 04. In the same way as the bassline, enter the notes in the picture and move the end marker to bar 003. A couple of the notes may look too short so stretch them - select the long gap after a note, hold down Shift and press the right cursor button once.
When the sequence looks like the one left, you can play it back to check it.
Select Save Performance from the File menu to call up the save options. Click on the markers so that only Sequences. Time Parameters and Sample Data are lit up. Hit OK to call up the save requester and choose the disk and drawer you wish to save on to (using the same method as loading samples). Enter a filename for your sequence and click on OK to save.
Click on Add then select I Play Sequence and OK. Click on Zoom- until you can see eight bars on screen. Go to the left of the main display and enter a bar sequence by pressing the left button. We want to change this to the bass sequence, so press the cursor up key until it reads “»3 Bassline**. Hold down the Shift key and press the right cursor seven times to get an eight-bar bassline.
Repeat this process for the ¦ O melody line (so that it starts and ends in the same places as the drum pattern). Move the end marker past the end of the track (it's best to have a gap) then select Exit from the File menu and click on Store. Rename the sequence something that stands out (I tend to use
* '»»» MAIN*,).
Total Carnage eh? Not another cute’n' Unify platform demo, I hear you cry. Well no. This is more a tale of heinous dictatorship in the land of Kookistan from ICE’s latest fab shoot-cm-up.
The rather unlikely-sounding General Myron Farley Akhbooh hits recently been relieved of his position at the Kookistan Burger Bain and Bail Shop and, despite the queue for his services, he has decided to severely damage the world instead. Retribution and all that - you know how it is. Apparently, he wasn't too happy about all the forms he had to till in before he could sign on. Anyway, if the army is assembled, let the destruction commence.
Land of Kookistan in our exclusive level from the Alpha Mission in ICE'S latest guntastic shoot-em-up.
The General's forces are assembled in, wait for it. A Baby Milk Factory ("eeh. You sometimes wonder who thinks these things up") - but you don't get to kill any babies, of course. We certainly wouldn't have anything like that on our Coverdisk.
Look out next month for our exclusive demo, Big Dragpmuotf pats the Little Pro tie mi Tuesdays.
The idea is simply to shoot everything in sight, without feeling, picking up a variety of fearsome weapons and other helpful items along the way POWER-UPS including grenade and rocket launchers, llame throwers and rather smart spray-fire rilles. And look out for Dog Fags, they give you an extra life.
Oh yeah, and pick up the blue Mines scattered around - to use one, press the Alt key once to lay it. And it will explode shortly afterwards.
There are folk to rescue too and tanks to blow away. Our exclusive level is part of the Alpha Mission - the full version has four missions in all.
Starting with a toilet standard ride, within seconds, you're surrounded by enemy soldiers who set upon you, beating you senseless in the process.
Tactical T ip One - keep moving. You are a fraction faster than them, but their sheer numbers mean they overpower vou within seconds.
Tactical l ip Two - grab whatever weapons you can; they only last a few seconds but they buy you lime. Avoid the mines at all times; not only do they look very similar to those beep-and-repeat games from the early eighties called Simons, they also kill you.
Tactical l ip Three - there arc holes scattered around all over the place and if you're a bit canny, you can lure enemy soldiers, lemming-fashion into them. So gel to it!
ROCKET LAUNCHER - launches rockets.
PLASMA GUN - better than bullets.
FLAME THROWER - great balls of fire.
SPRAY-FIRE RIFLE - rapid 90 degree fire.
DOG TAG - collect for an extra life.
KEYS - the key to getting into places.
MINES - press the Alt key to lay.
HOLES - lure the enemy into them.
Dozer is almost Jurassic Park in an ancient fortress. Yes, here's an increasingly rare opportunity to operate a bulldozer within the confines of a castle. Damn that meddling National Trust. Anyway, the aim of the game is to return a red Spinosaurus (probably very similar to the one in Jurassic Park), who travels under the name of Mon. to his cage using the Dozer - and a liberal sprinkling of 'the little grey cells', of course.
Mon always follows the walls and the idea is to push blocks into his path thus manoeuvring the recently-returned-from-extinction red fellow towards his cage. But be careful not to push the block on top of him - squashing the poor bloke is strictly against castle rules. So there. If Pacmar was a bulldozer and he lived in a castle, but never ate anything... Erm, well it would be a bit like that. You get the idea. Sounds simple enough doesn't it? Mind, everyone in the AF office is now bald due to having to resort to prolonged bouts of extensive pulling-out-of-the-hair activity.
There are 10 levels of returning the-dmosaur-to-his-cage action to tackle in this exclusive PD demo (and there are 100 levels in the full game as well as special endgame levels), and you can access any one you wish. Each level has a password - collect the lot and hey presto!, you've ensured Mon’s extinction for years. Hurrah!
You can use either the keyboard or a joystick, and for your edification, there is a Turbo mode and a map to hand. Enjoy, bald people.
KEYBOARD MOVES Z = move X = right I = down = up Enter or help = store current position Esc = quit level Space = activate deactivate turbo mode S = speed up Mon M = display map G'Ctftih'l |||| a Dozer can become quite stressful so if you get stuck on one level for a long time, access the map and look at castles.

Wordworth 3 NEW!.. £POA ws A1200 BU Paul Montgomery, vice
president and co-founder of Newtek and five other members of
staff have left the company, including Kiki Stockhammer,
Daniel Kaye, marketing director Mark Randall and programmers
Steve Hartford and Ken Turcotte.
The six left on 4th February following several months of disagreements on the future direction for Newtek. Rumours also abound concerning the possibility that this disagreement was over whether Newtek should be producing a PC version of the Toaster, with the ex-employees favouring moving the Toaster to IBM compatibles.
A statement to dealers from Newtek president. Tim Jenison, said: "This has also been a time of reflection for others at Newtek. As a result Paul Montgomery and a small group of other Newtek employees have determined that their future lies in opportunities outside Newtek."
It is not yet clear what the ex-Newtek employees are planning to do. Although it seems likely that they will work together.
Although the loss of these staff is a severe blow to Newtek, one Newtek insider said: "This has really cleared the air as to what direction the company will go. Which should work for the benefit of both groups."
The long awaited Screamer accelerator (which will greatly increase the rendering speed of the 3D program Lightwave) has also failed to appear yet. Newtek are deliberating over whether to put back the release date and use the Mips 4600, a more powerful accelerator chip than the one currently used in prototype models which are being tested by various graphics and animation companies.
Newtek are also still maintaining an official "no comment" on the possibility of a PAL Toaster, but they have recently announced that they will be bundling the Video Toaster with the new Passport 2000 from standards converter manufacturers Prime Image. This has been developed by Prime Image in co-operation with Newtek, and both companies will be exhibiting the combined system at future shows.
Prices have not been fixed, but you can expect to pay around £2,500 for the Toaster and £3.000 for the Passport 2000 standards converter. UK distributors for Prime Image products are Vortex: 081-579 2743.

Buying goods from mail order can save you lots of money - provided, that is, you buy smartly and take just a few simple precautions.
Take these 10 steps to safe buying and you will be sure of a bargain:
1) Before you send any money, ring the supplier to make sure the
item you require is in stock. Ask questions about delivery,
returns of faulty equipment postage and packaging.
2) Always read the small print on adverts.
3) Beware of companies that do not include their address on their
adverts. Also, avoid companies which do not answer or return
your calls.
4) Pay by credit card if possible. If you order goods of more
than £100 in total value, you are legally entitled to claim
compensation from some credit companies - if the retailer goes
bust. Check your credit card company's policy. You can also
try to get extra insurance in advance.
5) If you're not paying by credit card, pay by cheque.

Commodore have launched a ‘Seal of Approval Scheme'.
The scheme is part of the company's plan to re-assert their presence in the peripherals market, and to assure that quality peripherals are determinable from .ess high quality products.
Amiga manufacturers and publishers can apply to Commodore to have their products tested and given the official Commodore thumbs up.
Any item passing the rigorous demands of Commodore’s new testing program will then be allowed to display the Commodore 'Seal of Approval' symbol (as pictured above) on their product's packaging and promotional material.
Manufacturers wishing to participate in the scheme should first contact Kieron Sumner at Commodore on 0628 770088.

COT *l l AMIGA CD32? -THEN YOU CD32'S Bundle of Joy HE| r_ .v'U : DRIVING COMMODORE INSANE Commodore's Maidenhead headquarters have been plagued with calls and letters asking why the A1200 with hard drive fitted does not include a hard drive manual. The answer is simple, according to MD David Pleasance: "Commodore does not supply A1200s with hard drives. In the UK hard drives are fitted by third parties."
So if you have an A1200 with HD, but no documentation, complain to your supplier. If they are fitting hard drives, it is up to them to supply instructions and formatting software. Enquire before you buy, and if they don't supply manuals, take your business elsewhere.
Turn to page 32 of this issue to find a feature on how to partition, name, and look after your hard drive. But don't forget, Ramiga International's AmiBack*Tools is on offer at a special price on page 108 of this issue and is a big help for anyone trying to maintain and use a hard drive.
DEMAND YOUR RIGHTS OK, so my last column was a wimp out. What I meant to say was: "Get your act together. Commodore."
For too many years we've had the best machine. IBM had the users with ulcers, breakdowns and blue-suited stock- option speed freaking blowouts.
Anyway, give me a bridgeboard, and I can run PC software on my Amiga, if I want to, presuming that it isn't over-priced and under-powered and that I don't immediately consign it to the trashcan of failed, corporate nonsense.
Meanwhile the Mac has the cool-hippie aura, the windowing, Jobsian, flora and fauna. It's become the US's biggest selling PC simply because Apple brought its prices down to a level that we would still consider to be risible.
Give me an Emplant and I might forget, for a moment, the advantages of the Amiga over the Mac, such as TVPaint.
Wore worth, IDE-driven cheap hard disks, and more.
BUT WE'VE HAD both the speed and the cool. What we need now is to enforce our superiority, to not feel guilty about it, to not feel inferior about it, but to start flashing it around.
We need to start screaming to the sad over-engrandised, over media-produced fly-boys, we need to say that we've had multitasking, we've had multimedia, we've had the best coders and demo writers, the least nerdishness and the least recognition. What we've had is the most cause for joy, triumphalism and smugness. Now what we want is the corporate back-up, so... "Get your act together Commodore!"
We've got FMV! Before 3DO, before CD-i, before any of them. We've had 030s, 040s, A1200s. We've had the heritage of the A500.
We've got Team 17, Sensible Software, Psygnosis, Peter Molyneux, GVP, Retina, Andy Braybrook, Geoff Crammond, and the list could go on.
But we've also got timorousness from the corporate nabobs; they appear to be either too frightened or too disbelieving of the success of THE AMIGA to take it further.
RJ Mical must be turning in his money, weeping into his whisky and fuming about the fact that his machine hasn't yet taken it, taken it all.
BUT FORGET THE cry of the corporate cud-sucking, money worrying bullshit. I’ve been surfing the Internet and my Amiga has been invaluable.
The Amiga should be our gateway to a world of discussion on topics that cover the spectrum of human experience, and bar room banter. We should feel the pleasure of the National Basketball Association, we should feel the vacuess- ness of my computer versus your computer, we should feel the agony of the Slavs and the Croats.
We can do this with our Amigas... and more. Now is the time for pride, now is time to stand up coldly, cooly and with calculation, and to explain to the sad ones - those who refuse to take a stance - that the code, the operating system, the commitment and the hope are all predefined. We have no need to justify, we have a need to be supported by the company that gave us our machine.
PHEW! Now for another whinge. This one's about The Internet. More importantly, it's about the fact that The Internet seems to comprise Mac and PC users.
Sure, Amiga Format recently got a mention on one of the major Net bibles. Wired - a magazine set up by its producers when the look-ahead, cutting-edge publishing community decided it was a little too interesting and maybe not quite profit-making enough - and rightfully so (AF still has some real attitude residing in it). But we can’t let the Net become the sub-culture of PC-based techno-weenies. Let’s get the Amiga in there now!
COLU rjjlJjXU tim Not to be left out of Commodore's Summer promotions spectacular, the Cl)12 is also to be re-bundled. For the new pack, titled Spectacular Voyage, out goes the excellent Diggers. And the rather average Wing Commander and Oscar. Out too goes the appalling Dangerous Streets.
In their place comes Microcosm (see our rave review on page 56) and Chaos I'ngine (so new we haven't reviewed it yet.
But there's a demo on our sister magazine AMIGA CD1-). Commodore consider it vert important that new CD32 users get to see what the machine is capable of. “Microcosm is the first product which really does justice to the machine." Says Commodore's MD David Pleasance.
Rather than go through the expensive and time-consuming process of re-calling existing parks, Commodore are shipping dealers new sleeves and discs. This means that if you buy the original CD1- bundle from a shop that has been sent the new bundle you will get the original discs, plus Microcosm and Chaos F.ngine from the new bundle. Not bad. Eh?
.Alter Tim Smith demanded a CD-ROM drive for A1200 owners in bis column on last month's news pages, we have had a Hood of letters of agreement. But don't tell us, tell David Pleasance.
Commodore have stated their inability to produce an FMV compatible A1200 CD drive, due to problems with the gate array.
They believe that if FMV compatibility is not achievable, there is no point in producing a CD drive at all.
We have argued that A1200 owners would buy a non-FMV unit, but Commodore respond that when FMV games start to appear A1200 CD owners would feel left out. But FMV games will not appear until FMV is a standard feature of a console. There is no point developing for a technology that only 20 per cent of users have, because it's a 1200 add-on.
Sure, FMV games might be commonplace for CD64. But at present they are not an issue. The issue is that A1200 owners want to play CD32 games, and access CD- PD collections. We want to be part of die revolution without having a CD32 wired to our A1200s.
I. ike we say. Don't tell us. Tell Commodore. Have your say. If
enough of you are bothered about it, we will get what we want.
It's the power of the consumer.

More good news on the CD-*2 games front is that CD'*- now has 50 titles, with over 200 in development. It also accounts for 58.6 per cent of all CD software sales, ahead of both MegaCD and PC CD-ROM.
And with CD-i fourth position.
"Programmers have only scratched the surface of 32-bit CD technology," says David Pleasance. "The coming months will see even better games produced - and that can only increase the Amiga's hold on the charts."
The makers of Amiga Format have created the finest magazine and disc package for CD32 users.

This is especially true of hard disk space, which is why 4th Level Technology have released a new version of their 1.2 Gigabyte rewritable laser cartridge system Mo-Miga which combines a Sony magneto optical drive and specially written Amiga driver software.
The drive gives a maximum transfer speed of up to 5Mb per second (although 2Mb is a more realistic figure for sustained use) through a SCSI 2 interface, which is not included.
The driver software has been rewritten, now allowing users to exchange cartridges with other types of computer such as Unix systems. The driver software supports all the standard disk commands, and allows the user to remove and insert cartridges without having to reboot the system.
The drive and software costs £2,300 + VAT, and the cartridges cost £149.99 + VAT each from Ramiga International on 0690 770304.

Regular Amiga John Allardice. Since we Format readers may wrote this piece John has recall that we fea- been offered a big bucks tured John in issue S3, job at a major digital in a news story about edit suite. A film he was involved with. The movie was to be a cyberpunk story, and John was hoping to create the special effects using his Amiga.
Cyberpunk 'net' stories feature a visual allegory of the global information superhighway as a net of bright shapes in a black void. These kind of special effects are the kind of thing the Amiga can do before breakfast.
John was planning to use Imagine 2 and Real 3D to create his net. But since AF53 was our big Video Toaster issue, John discovered the joys of John's company showreel is a testament to the hard work he has put in on Lightwave. These stills don't do justice to the animated original.
Lightwave in our office. "It changed everything.
Lightwave is a system designed especially for the 3D animator." John recalls. (See his review of Lightwave on page 116 of this issue.)
We made the long haul to Scotland to see how things were going on the film. "Well, the Black Light is the new working title of the movie that Amiga user, John Allardice, is producing the special effects for.
Name's changed," says John. Apparently Wefware is also the title of a Cyberpunk book by Rudi Rucker. So the new working title is Black Light.
¦o 50 * o ft "The first draft is now complete, " says John, "but the production company haven't actually come up with the development cash yet.” Until then John and Marc DeLaney, co author of the original treatment, must play a waiting game. All Amiga owners can do is hope that Boxcar give them the dosh. So that Black Light comes to our screens soon.

Delivery exirj. E ti OE Buying a hard drive could improve the quality of your Amiga-using life.
John Kennedy proves the value of being hard-headed when it comes to choosing the best way of storing data on your Amiga.
MORE AMD MORE rais a owners are discovering ihe joy that a hard drive can bring to their Amiga. In fact, if you haven't got a hard drive, read on to find out why you should buy one.
If you’ve already got one. Discover how to get the most out of it.
A hard drive (also known as a hard disk drive or hard disk) is the single most useful piece of hardware you can ever add to an Amiga. Fitting or owning a machine which already has a hard drive installed banishes those ‘Please Insert Volume' messages forever. In lact. Once you start using a hard drive you might find that the only time you ever |jse a floppy again is to load games.
Externally, hard drives look pretty unexciting.
They are usually black and either 2.5-inch (slightly larger than an audio cassette box) or 5.5-inch deep (slightly smaller than the thickness of paperback book). Both connect to the Amiga via a cable and a suitable interface.
The AfiOO. A1200 and A4000 have hard drive interfaces bttilt in, so adding a drive is therefore quite inexpensive. It is also possible to buv alt the above Amigas with the drive already in place.
In everyday use the hard drive has the characteristics of an extra fast, extra large (loppy.
Typically, a hard drive will work 30 times faster than a (loppy and even the largest ol programs only takes seconds to load. Programs which make extensive use of graphics or fonts will run a lot more smoothly.
How do I prepare a new hard drive?
II you bought your Amiga with a hard drive already installed, it should be ready to go. When you switch on, the drive should whirr and, within 30 seconds, you will see the familiar grev of Workbench on the screen. The long delay that precedes the A1200’s normal boot is used by the hard drive and so it all seems lightning last compared to the old lloppv-only system.
If you bought your hard drive after you bought vour.Amiga, you will probably have to prepare (or prep') it yourself before it will work with the Amiga. The process involves two distinct steps:
1. Prepping the drive to work as an Amiga device.
2. Formatting and copying Workbench on to it.
The first step requires a specific prepping program to configure the drive to work with the Amiga. If you have an A4000 or bought tin A1200 600 with a hard drive in place, you will have a copy of Commodore's HDTnnlHox program.
This program makes prepping a drive extremely quick and ease.
When it is first run. The program will search to see if a hard drive is connected. If it detects a drive, the program will then try to find out what size and make thev are. The chances are that HDToolBoxwon't know, but it can then read all the information it needs from the drive itself. When the changes are saved to the drive and the computer re-booted, the hard drive should appear its an icon on the Workbench.
DRIVING Ambitions The second step is required before the drive can actually be used. Formatting it hard drive is just like formatting a floppv disk - but actually a good bit quicker. I lighlighl the icons and then select Formal from the Workbench menu. Alwavs use the Quick option, otherwise you just spend a long time waiting. Make sure that Fast File System is used, and decide whether or not von want to have a Trash icon.
There are several very good reasons for partition hard drives. First of all. It helps you organise your data. When you have as much as several hundred megabytes of disk space, you'll need some way to keep track of it all.
Secondly, it's a good way of providing some security. I lard drives occasionally go wrong, but rarelv do they go wrong in more than one partition at a time.
Partitioning a drive is usually done at the same time as prepping. As changing the size of a partition will destroy all the data present. II you intend to adjust the partitions on an existing disk, you must back-up all your data or it will be lost forever.
Fragmentation After a lot ol use. Your bard drive mav become fragmented. When a program or data is saved to the disk, it mav not be possible to store it all in When the drive has been formatted it will become a normal AmigaDON device, and Workbench can be copied on to it from the original Workbench disks.
II you don't have the ollicial Commodore install programs, don't worry because there are several similar programs available in the Public Domain - RDPrep is one which springs to mind.
These programs all work in similar ways, and they will prep and format the disk for 'tin. Some of the programs may even copy Workbench across for you automatically.
What are partitions?
Although a hard drive is a single unit, as far as the Amiga is concerned it can be split into two or more separate drives called Partitions.
It is usual to partition a hat'd drive into two: a Workbench partition ol about five to 10 tnegabvtes in si e where you keep the Amiga Workbench, anti a Work partition where vou store all of your programs and games.

Easy, or what? This drive has a 14Mb boot partition to store Workbench and hundreds of fonts.
Qwhy does the Amiga software supplied say the drive connected is a SCSI one when it's IDE?
A Some software, notably HDToolBox. Is convinced that the Amiga 600,1200 and 4000 are fitted with a SCSI interface.
This isn't true! The Amiga is fooled into this decision purely as a consequence of the way the IDE interface has been bolted onto the Amiga motherboard and the libraries and controller supplied with Workbench.
When using propping programs, it may appear that SCSI drives need a Low Level Format before they can be used. This is true, but an IDE drive does not. In fact performing a Low Level Format on an IDE drive will destroy it permanently, so don't do it Qtlfteu J m -* * - I ¦___-»¦ « 1-S wny aoes my onve only dooi Trom com or not boot from cold or even only boot from warm reset?
A Some IDE hard drives work at different speeds and are set up in different ways from others. As a result some will boot one. Long, continuous block. The drive may have to split it into chunks and scatter it where ever it can find space. Although all this is hidden front you, the consequence of a badly fragmented drive is longer loading times.
You can check how badly fragmented your hard drive is by using a program such as Ami-Back Tools, (a version of which was on the Coverdisk of Amiga Formal Issue 57). The more files which are fragmented, the slower your hard drive will appear to work.
Fixing a fragmented drive can he done in several ways. First of all. You can back up all of your data to lloppies and then reformat the drive (do remember to use Quick formal) and copy the data back again.
The second way is to use a special defragmenting program such as ReOrg (version 3.1 is available from 17 Hit Software on disk 2815) or Ami-Back strangely on certain Amiga configurations, but there are ways around this. Some IBM drives need pin one on the IDE cable disconnected. And some Connor drives need to have jumpers set up as ISA instead of CAM.
Consult the drive documentation for details. If you are unsure it would be a good idea to contact the company that sold you the drive.
Do not attempt these fixes unless you know exactly what they entail and can live with any consequences! We can't accept any responsibility for damage that may result. In some cases, the drive will not boot property until H has had time to get up to speed.
Qwhy do some games and other programs not work properly when reading large amounts of data from the hard drive?
A Some games start to act-up when they are used with certain makes of hard drive. Typical symptoms of this incompatibility include corrupt graphics and sound.
One way to fix these stutters is to use HDToolBox to alter the Max Transfer rate of each partition of the drive.
This topic has been dealt with many times by Nkk Veitch in previous issues of Amiga Fotmot. Adjusting the maximum transfer rate to lower values (such as OxFFFF) might help some hard drives cope with games and other utilities reading data from the hard disk.
The new version of the Amiga 4000 may support SCSI 2 as well as or instead of the IDE standard interface. At the time of writing this was not confirmed by Commodore.
Fools' GP option. These programs will attempt to reorder all the data without the need for back-up.
Unfortunately, if anything untoward should happen during the reorganisation process (such as a power cut) the data on the disk will become scrambled. It is very important that yon always remember to back up essential data before you attempt a de-fragment operation.
It pays to back-up Hard drives aren't perfect, they do occasionally go wrong and sometimes accidents happen. It could be something simple like switching off the computer by mistake in the middle of a write operation or it could be a nasty virus program.
You might even accidentally kick or drop the computer whilst it is in operation.
Whatever the cause, it pays to back up your hard drive every so often, either to floppy disk or to something more exotic such its Digital Audio Tape (DAT) streamer or video tape.
A common question is "W'hat should I back up?" And the answer is simple. Back up everything you can't afford to lose. Imagine the worst case scenario, and your hard drive is totally destroyed.
Which files could you not replace?
You should have the floppy originals of your games and serious software, but your own pictures, text files and programs may be lost forever. If you depend on your Amiga to make a living, it can be financial suicide not to make regular back-ups.
The easiest way to back up a disk is simply to drag the important files directly on to a waiting floppy. Unfortunately this can take a very long time, and there is always the possibility that you will make a mistake.
A dedicated back-up program, such as - yes, you guessed it - Ami-Back can take a lot of the drudgery out of the backing-up process. You might not he aware, but every AmigaDOS file has a special set of hidden flags associated with it.
These Hags let the operating system know what sort of data a file contains, but there is also a special archive bit. This bit is cleared when a file is created, but when a program such as Ami-Back stores it away on floppy, it becomes set.
This means Ami-Back only backs up files which have changed since the last back-up, which will make the operation a lot faster and easier on the number of lloppies you'll have to have knocking around. You can also ask Ami-Back to only back up files using different criteria, such as those created after certain dates.
Any good back-up program will also compress files to lessen the number of floppies required.
Choosing a hard drive The Amiga AliOO, A1200 and A-1000 support the IDF. Standard, and as a result nearly all IDF) drives are compatible (see the Hard Disk Problems box to the left for more details).
The A600 and A1200 were designed to work with 2.5-inch drives, and include a 'cradle' inside to hold them in place. Installing one takes about 15 minutes, although you should remember that as soon as you open the case of the Amiga you void any warranty.
It is also possible to squeeze 3.5-inch drives inside the case of the AI200, although depending on the drive this may require a few internal alterations. It's not recommended for those afraid of using a screwdriver and a pair of pliers.
The A4000 uses 3.5-inch drives as standard.
There is room at the rear of the ease for two IDF.
Drives which can provide a lot of storage space for 'serious' Amiga nuts.
Before you hand over any cash for a hard drive, always ask if the drive lias been tested with tin' model of Amiga you own. Make this a condition of sale - you might be unlucky and end up getting a drive which doesn't work properly with your machine- C5 THE FULL STORY The version of Arm-Back Took on last month's Covertfcsk ms slightly cut down When you buy the full program, you gel the following features:

POSTER :¦ sens AUDIO soubce V u SCREEN SHOTS MAY BE FROM A DIFFERENT VERSION You know about CD32 and you've heard about the Full Motion video unit, but did you realise that together they represent a milestone in home entertainment. To discover the full potential of FMV and CD32, read on... WE ARE STANDING on the brink of a video revolution. And right in the front line are the Amiga CD** console and the Full Motion Video unit.
The rather ordinary-looking FMV unit that fits into the back of the CD** is the gateway to a new era of home entertainment. It means that you can now watch films and music videos on your television from Compact Disc. And when we say now we mean NOW.
You can already buy Compact Disc films including Star Trek 6, Patriot dames. Black Bain Naked (inn 2 Vz and Tap (inn for the CD** in yuur I ligh Street hi-fi and video store.
In Ihe next few months many more box office hits will be available, and by the end of Ihe year we could well see CD having gained such a foothold that films will be released simultaneously on video tape and Compact Disc.
Fast forward to the future of home entertainment with Star Trek 6, one of the films already available on FMV.
Thanks to the FMV card Ihe CD** is not just a games machine, but is a complete home entertainment system. Scores of games have already been converted to CD, you can play ordinary music Cds on Ihe machine, and now you can use it to play CD films many of which have full Dolby Surround sound tracks.
By the end of Ihe decade Compact Disc could be Ihe premier medium for watching films at home. The quality is far belter than can be achieved with a video. Ihe sound Ls superior. Cds are cheaper to produce than VHS videos, they last longer and... when was the last time you played a platform game on your video?
The CD** and FMV are a landmark in the film and vidt-o industry's history. 'Ilie pictures on this page show you what Ihe future looks like for the CD** and FMV. Welcome to the future.
Continued overleaf SWITCH ON If all goes to plan, we’ll soon be throwing out our video recorders to use digital video CD players. Jolyon Ralph looks at the current state of digital TV, how it works and how you can be a part of it.
R THE MAGIC LETTERS in computer- land today are FMV - Full Motion Video.
Computer graphics have come a long way from the chunky blocks of the ZXSpectrum. And with FMV the)' are even launching an assault on the mammoth home video market.
The FMV unit reads the data from the CD, decompresses it and sends out a video and audio signal that the CD32 can display. For a computer to claim support of Full Motion Video, it must replay full-screen digital images at standard frame rales. In other words, the computer monitor must display real life images which look better than those coming from a VHS video recorder.
The digital images can be replayed from hard disk. RAM or even CD-ROM. But to be true FMV they need to be full-screen, in colour and moving at 25 frames a second.
The Amiga is well capable of FMV and it's possible to get reasonable results by replaying an animation of digitised HAMS mode images, although they need to be replayed directly from memory on a very fast machine: hardly economic.
WHY FMV?
The advantages of a working FMV system are obvious. The biggest is increased profit. Compact Discs have been so successful and cheap to manufacture that video distribution companies have become more than a little envious. Why should the)' bother with mechanically-complicated cassette mechanisms, when a Compact Disc (costing a few pence to produce) can be sold for about the same price as a video- A second plus point for FMV is that tape has always been rather restrictive and doesn't enjoy the random access that a CD offers: you can skip from track to track on a music C.D in seconds, but you
need to fast-forward and rewind for ages to find the right point on a tape.
Putting video on to a disc was never going to be easy, and the big problem was how to put the video information on to the CD without a fundamental redesign of the entire platform.
The Compact Disc was originally designed to store just over an hour of music on a single five- inch disc, using high-quality lb-bit stereo audio captured at 44.100 samples per second. A full CD has a total capacity of around 630Mb of data, and because 16-bit stereo audio requires 172K of information per second this means the maximum playing time of a CD is around 74 minutes.
If you wondered what this port at the back of your CD32 is for, it’s where the FMV unit slots in.
GREAT VIDEO FAILURES The first attempts at storing moving video images on Compact Disc were unsuccessful. Laserdisc used analogue rather than digital means to store high-quality images, but expensive players and lack of discs meant the venture was doomed.
Digital video was theoretically easier to produce, but the bottleneck was always going to be getting the video data off the disc fast enough to display images at 25 frames per second.
The CDV system attacked the problem from another angle: if the video won't fit into 172Kb then why not increase the rotational speed of the CD to increase the data rate?
The technology to read CD data at this speed was new and costly, and the increased data rate meant the disc could only hold between five and 10 minutes of video. That's fine for storing one music video, and a couple of standard audio tracks to fill up the space, but it's not enough to store films.
Intel, best4 nown for the processors used in Pcs and compatibles, spent a lot of time developing a system known as DVI. DVI is good for use in interactive computer programs, but unfortunately, it is rather expensive, and has only really found success in high-end training systems.
Some digital video cards use a JPEG system whereby consecutive images are read from disk and decompressed in real time, but for Amiga and CD32 series. Commodore have adopted the MPEG-1 standard.
This is a wise move, because MPEG has many advantages over other the systems - the biggest being its adoption as an international standard by all major hardware manufacturers.
The new format of video on CD (Video CD) is based purely on MPEG, so for the first time it looks as though there will be a viable new video format.
.
' m « m .- Boldly going where not many people have been before.
CD32 and FMV open up a huge range of opportunities.
Bv comparison, video is huge. A second of video is made from 25 individual frames, each of which would take up over a megabyte of space if digitised and stored in uncompressed form. Even when compressed using traditional techniques it's impossible to squeeze video into the 172K of data that you can read from a CD in one second.
INTRODUCING MPEG What is MPEG? Quite simply. MPEG is the solution to a problem that was very nearly impossible to solve. Somehow the 25Mb of video data required every second, plus the data for the soundtrack had to be crushed into a total of 172K.
It was, nearly, impossible. But spurred on by thoughts of the new markets that could be opened up, the film industry and many major hardware manufacturers got together and set up a task-force called the Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG) to come up with the answer.
The solution was a compression system for both video and audio, capable of squeezing VMS or better quality video and sound into the necessary 172K limit.
Audio compression - compressing audio into as little as one tenth of the space normally required - was the easiest to implement. Using a psycho-acoustic model of the ear it's possible to cut away sound that humans will not detect, such as very high or very low frequencies, or sounds that are hidden underneath louder sounds.
The resulting sound is not quite as good as a CD but most people will never notice the difference. It's still far better than the sound on conventional video tape, and is, in fact, almost identical to the compression systems used for the Sony MiniDisc and the Philips DCC Digital Cassette systems.
Video compression is done in three distinct stages. First the resolution of each frame is reduced by a half. The speed and quality of playback ensure the images don't appear too blocks, and you can only see the pixels when you examine the screen closely when the video is paused.
In the second stage the video data is converted into a format called YCC 4:1:1, a much more compact method for dealing with video than standard RGB. It contains four times as much information on the luminance (Y) or brightness information as it does on the individual colour components.
In a video image the colour information changes less frequently over the screen than the brightness levels. Think, for example, of a picture Continued overleaf PLAYBACK TIME It takes hours or even days to process a film into MPEG format but unless it can be played back at 25 frames per second it's worthless.
A lot of time has been spent optimising the MPEG playback routines, and the software is now freely available. There are several Amiga MPEG playback programs in the Public Domain, along with some miniature ani- MPEG ENCODING Creating MPEG videos is not an easy task, and currently there are only a handful of companies worldwide who can produce high-quality MPEG video. Even the hardware is made by only one or two manufacturers.
There are programs available for the Amiga to create MPEG video streams, but these are of poor quality and do not currently support audio compression. They can take several hours to convert a few seconds of video, even when running on A4000s.
Mations. Unfortunately, even on an A4000 the frame rate is about four a second for a quarter-screen image.
Rather than empower every playback machine with 100Mhz 68060 processors, the MPEG engineers have built the decoding programs directly into silicon which means they can run many, many times faster. The FMV cartridge for the CD32 contains some of these MPEG chips which means even though it is only equipped with a 68020, it can still display proper FMV films.
What is needed is a system that can input live video and audio and output MPEG files ready to put on a CD- ROM. Currently such hardware is new, apparently buggy, and very expensive - you will be lucky to get change out of £70,000.
Within 18 months this hardware could be available as a single Zorro III card to fit into an Amiga at a cost of £3,000-£4,500. Within three to five years you may even see domestic units on sale for a few hundred pounds.
Soon you'll will be able to record your own Video CD discs directly on to a blank write-once gold CD.
I WANT TO PLAY CD32 DISCS ON MY A1200 Ever since the CD32 first appeared it has been rumoured that Commodore would release an A1200 add-on that would enable you to plug in and play CD games and watch FMV movies via the A1200.
That is not going to happen. Commodore have now made it clear that although it is technically possible to create such an add-on. Is a financial non-starter because it would actually cost more to produce than the CD32.
So if you want to play CD32 games and watch CD movies, you'll have to buy a CD32.
If you already have a CD32, it’s likely that in the next few months you will be able to buy an A1200 enhancer. Microbotics are currently working on an addon that would enable you to attach a floppy disk drive to the CD32. Because you can already add a keyboard, this would effectively turn you CD32 into an A1200.
Of a cloudy sky. There are large areas of blue and white, but the actual brightness levels determine the detail.
Without colour the image would be monochrome, and without brightness it would just be made up of bright blue and white, and, at best, it would look like a poor crayon picture.
The third stage involves examining the frames as a sequence, rather than individually. Some frames (on average one every half a second) are stored in their entirety after going through more compression systems called Discrete Cosine Transformation. Quantization and Run Length Encoding. These are called T frames and are used as reference markers for the rest of the video.
The parts of a video which fall between the T frames are calculated using their two nearest markers. Areas of video that do not move (a static background behind a moving actor, for example) are spotted and removed. Areas of screen that move hut which remain essentially the same (such as a panning shot) are also noted. The calculations required to do all this are complicated and even a small sequence can take the most powerful computers many hours to complete.
After the number crunching, the sound and video are combined or interleaved, and rather impressively, require less than 172Kb per second.
The MPEG format requires some very savage compression to get video on to a CD. It is worth noting that the data loss is usually compared to the original master material on Bctacam format broadcast master, or on film.
The quality is in many ways better than traditional VHS tapes, and the usual VHS problems such as ghosting, herringbone patterns, noise static and other effects are not found on video CD.
Plus. Cds don't stretch or wear out like a cassette.
WHAT'S TO COME Games programmers are going to have a field day when every console is equipped with the necessary MPEG hardware. At the moment animations are limited to using the CDXI, system which was developed for the CDTV.
Although CDXL. Is much better than other software-only systems (such as those offered by the Sega MegaCD) it is still well short of true FMV.
Games featuring real actors and scenes have already started to appear on the PC, but it is only a matter of time before real, interactive television becomes a reality on your Amiga.
Joylon Ralph works for Almathera, and is author of Video Creator, the first CD32 title to support MPEG.
A MOVIE Over the next few months there should be a flood of CD releases for the CD32 with FMV unit. But the first titles were designed to work on Philips CD-i system, not CD32.
Richard Jones explains... THE FILM AND music industries are queueing up to release their movies and music videos on Compact Discs. At present there are about eight film and music videos that will play on the CD32 with FMV card, but there are at least another 20 music videos in the pipeline, and several more major film titles will become available over the Summer, leading to an "explosion" of releases in the Autumn.
The first CD video releases were produced by Philips, and all the titles available at present were designed for use with their CD-i machine.
Commodore realised that the first titles would be for CD-i and made sure that the CD32 FMV module would be capable of playing theses discs. But according to Philips the fact that CD-i discs are CD32 FMV compatible came as a complete surprise.
Philips spokesman Nick Thomas said: "We didn't realise that the first films would play on CD32, but it seems that anything that can access the MPEG data stream can play any linear video disk, and the CD32 has the same MPEG chips as the CD-i."
So how do Philips feel about the CD32 being able to play discs that Philips designed specifically for CD-i? Surely it's something of an embarrassment and an inconvenience?
Not at all, says Nick Thomas: "We are delighted that they work with CD32. We are all agreed that it is great news. It will cause people much less confusion, and it means that the software guys can concentrate on producing material without having to make it hardware specific.
"As far as we are concerned, anyone who takes a partisan view over linear video is making a very great mistake."
In other words this cake is big enough for everyone to have their slice. The more means there are of playing CD films, the more films will be released, and the more people will buy CD-i, or CD32s on which to play them. It's something approaching a supply and demand utopia for the music and video industry.
And even though it is (according to Philips) a happy coincidence that the first CD-i video releases are CD32-compatible, it would only have been a matter of time before Philips would have made all their releases comply to the White Book industry standard, which means that they can be played on any format that supports FMV.
"We fully support the White Book standard," said Philips spokeswoman Gena Jones. "So we don't see CD32 compatibility as an issue.
"We want all the discs to be White Book standard, so that all of the systems become attractive and the hardware specific stuff, becomes a less attractive proposition."

Harrison Ford stars In the tense tale of terrorism and political intrigue Patriot Games.
If you walk into your local hi-fi and video shop today you should be able to find about eight Philips CD-i titles that will play on the CD32 with FMV card.
IN A SHOP NEAR YOU NOW!
These should include the films Star Trek 6, Patriot Games. Black Rain. Naked Gun 2*!. Top Gun, and Son Jovi, Bryan Adams and Andrew Lloyd Webber music videos.
Also due for release soon are Fatal Attraction.
Ghost Hunt For Red October, and several Bond movies. Record companies have 22 music videos scheduled for release this year, including titles by Queen. U2 and David Bowie. All titles cost £15.99. making them competitive with VHS tapes, but because they cost less to produce, the industry is very interested in CD movies and music videos.
"You don't get this level of interest from film and record companies very often," said Nick Thomas, spokesman for CD-i developers. Philips.
The flagship product is Star Trek 6. Which was transferred to CD by a crack team of Philips technicians. "There are probably only another eight people in the world who know as much as these guys do." Said Nick Thomas.
The Philips team had access to the direct master of Star Trek 6, so the CD-i adventures of Captain Kirk. Spock. Sulu and their alien chums represents the best quality it is possible to create. If all the releases were taken from the direct master they would be of the same high standard as Star Trek 6.
Apart from the titles mentioned above, you may find other CD-i releases. One drawn to our attention was the Playboy Complete Massage video, described as "a stunning breakthrough in home entertainment. Produced for loving couples, this provocative CD-i program will inspire you to explore new sexual possibilities..." Hmmm.
ONE OF THE mosi eagerly-awaited FMV releases is Akim, the leading light in the Japanese Anime style of animation which is rapidly gaining cult status with Amiga users.
FULL MOTION VIDEO THE AKIRA FACTOR The good news is that the video and game rights for Akim and the video rights for more than 20 other Anime titles have been bought bv a British company and production of Compact Disc versions of the films could start tomorrow.
The bad news is that the company that has the rights to Akim - the Stroud-based games publishers ICE - has yet to decide whether or not to release the film, and if they don't release it, then nobody else can.
We put ICE boss Stuart Bell on the spot by asking him when we can expect to see an Akira game 011 the Amiga and what’s happening with an FMV Akim movie.
"Work is currently underway on both floppy and CD3- versions of Akira,' says Stuart. "We hope to release an FMV version of Akira this year."
But it's all a bit vague though, isn't it? There are no firm release dates, so what happens to the Akira licence if ICE decide not to go ahead with the game and FMV release?
"We are the licencees of the computer game rights and it will he appearing on a number of different computer formats," says Stuart. "If we should decide not to publish for the Amiga or any other format that we have the licence for. That would simply be that, for at least as long as the licence runs."
But given Amiga users' incredible interest in Akim and the other Anime titles, can ICE afford not to develop the game and FMV movie?
"We have to make a commercial decision."
Explains Stuart. "While we are all hardened .Amiga gamers and Akim addicts, we have to be certain that we are going to be able to get a return for our investment. Sadly for Commodore there are other machine formats that are more guaranteed to return our investment and we have to look at these first."
THE AKIRA STORY Otomo Katsuhiro's film Akim was first shown in Tokyo on July 6, 1988 and was previewed in this country at the Bristol Film Festival in 1990.
The film, which has now gained cult status, is based on the comic book Akira story and concentrates on a violent society motorbike gangs, adolescent no-hopers, junkies and petty criminals in Neo-Tokyo, a city born out of the rubble and ruins of Tokyo alter it was destroved in a World War Three holocaust.
The film is a nightmare futuristic ision of a Japanese society where anarchy and mob rule are the norm. The content is heavily influenced by Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, but the style owes everything to the Anime tradition.
The dark and mysterious figure of Akim pervades the gangland action, but is he a force of good or just another personification of evil? Watch the film and find out. 'Z) THE ANIME STYLE You only have to check out the number of Public Domain demos influenced by Anime to appreciate that the Japanese style of art is having a huge influence on Amiga users.
Akira is the best known example of Anime (pronounced ah-nee-may), but the style is far from being a recent phenomenon. Anime dates back to the beginning of this century when Japanese artists and illustrators first began to experiment with the new art of film-making.
There are now more than a million hours of Anime films, and the Japanese animation industry has grown into a major artistic and financial force.
You will often see Anime films described as manga films. Manga is in fact the Japanese for 'irresponsible picture’ or comic book, and is also the name of the leading Anime film company.
The top-selling manga comic in Japan is Shorten Jump, which sells more than six million copies a week. Manga comics account for almost a third of Japan's entire publishing industry in the UK: the distinctive f tyle of art is a huge industry in Japan and growing more popular in Britain.

APRIL 1 994 93%), Cyberspace is based around a 3D playing environment, reminiscent of Legends of Valour, where characters lead their own lives irrespective of your own activities within the game. According to the game's producer Rik Yapp, Cyberspace features over 7.5 million locations for you to explore and millions more
people you can meet.
Logging into one of the netstations located within each building, cyberspace is a wire-frame, battle- zone world full of viruses, defence programs and data which you have to bypass, destroy and access respectively. From cyberspace you can find out all kinds of information about other characters and the megacorps which control them.
Until the eorly 80s, the future was seen as a utopian universe, filled with hi-tech cities, gleaming spires and untold wealth and technology, even nightmare visions of the future portrayed the world in the same way.
Cyberpunk changed all that.
Through the science fiction novels of William Gibson, among others, the future has been portrayed as a teeming, densely overpopulated nightmare where life is cheap and only the wealthy and powerful have control over their own destinies.
Enter Dreamweb and Cyberspace, two new cyberpunk adventures from Empire Software.
Based on the role-playing boardgame of the same name, Cyberspace takes you to 2090 and drops you in New Boston, a city dominated by a collapsing government, repressive mega corporations, drug abuse and random violence.

• * Spectacularly violent with plenty of blood, gore and even a
smidgen of sex, Dreamweb bursts on to your screen. 99 Being an
RPG, Cyberspace offers you the chance to choose from six
pre-generated characters, each with their own occupation - Net
Junkie, Sleaze, Sneak, Killer, Tech Rat or Jockey - or you can
generate your own.
The kind of game you play depends on your character, yet you always end up coming to the rescue of your best pal who's ultimately abducted by one of the megacorps and his secret plans stolen.
Central to the game is the cyberspace arena itself. Accessed by Dreamweb, meanwhile, offers a similarly nightmarish view of the future, but brings a very different slant in terms of gameplay. Viewed from an overhead perspective, Dreamweb is a graphic adventure spread over 30 locations with more than 200 rooms to explore and 80 different characters to interact with.
The plot revolves around the dreamweb of the title, "an endless dwelling of thought" which controls the world's waking state.
Unfortunately the seven keepers of the dreamweb have become irreDreamweb's Blade Runner-Ish world Is filled with grisly discoveries like this one. Or did you do It yourself?
From books to movies to rock ‘n’ roil, cyberpunk is big business these days, but it’s never more at home than on the Amiga as Rob Mead discovers.
Trievably infected with evil, throwing the world into chaos. It's your job to kill all of the seven keepers so the dreamweb regenerates.
Spectacularly violent with plenty of blood, gore and even a smidgeon of sex, Dreamweb bursts on to your screen. The top-down perspective may seem unusual in a graphic adventure, but it enables you to see all the objects and characters in a room as you enter it and doesn't try to fool you with a distorted perspective. Every single object in the game can also be used or manipulated in some way and there's a detailed text description for each object so you always know exactly what you're dealing with.
Graphically, the game has a dark, foreboding atmosphere with 4,000 frames of animation and a decidely Blade Runner-ish feel to keep it all rolling along smoothly.
Dreamweb is released in April, with Cyberspace following one month later. Both games will sell for £34.99 each.

As the world and his dog gears up for the World Cup footie spectacular in the States this summer, Anco, Sensible Software, Sierra and US Gold unveil their contenders for the Amiga's own fantasy football league.
First out of the tunnel is Kick Off 3 which has abandoned the famous top-down view of the Dino Dini originals (Kick Off AFI, FG91 % and Kick Off 2 AF13, FG94%) and opted for a side-on view of the action.
Features of this radically-altered new version include a full World Cup option with 32 international teams and a key player concept, where up to nine players in a team are allocated special skills which affect the way they play on pitch.
Striker it lucky For example, a Playmaker has excellent vision and splits the defence with long passes, while the Target Man has heading skills and can be found easily by the wingers. The game has Arcade and Simulation modes, which enable you to play a fun-filled match with pre-selected teams and no injuries or a more realistic game with offside rules, fouls and a cus- tomisable squad.

vidcu Us Shortly after the death of Jasminder, a World in
Action documentary claimed that playing computer games made
children violent and anti-social. This was followed by a
Daily Star story (Video games are blamed for creating violent
kids), which linked ihe abduction and murder of two-year-old
James Bulger with games playing.
It is easy to dismiss such stories as sensationalist scaremongering, but the games industry was sufficiently rattled by the threat of Government legislation to launch its own system of self-regulation.
Monitor Man The scheme, which was to have been phased in between this month and May, featured a Monitor Man logo and a rating. But the logo has now been scrapped and several console games manufacturers have voiced some disquiet about the ratings system.
However, ELSPA are determined to go ahead wtth the system which was devised in conjunction with the Video Standards Council, and which classifies 95 per cent of games according to four age ranges: 0-10, 1 1-14, 15-17 and 18+ The remaining five per cent will be games ELSPA asks games players to: Play In a well-lit room.
Not play games for hours on end.
Play the foil distance possible horn the Use a specialist monitor rather than a TV, It at aH possible.
Not play at all M you are prone to photo sensitive fits.
The games industry has finally bowed to Government and media pressure and introduced a system of self-regulation, but what does it mean for the average games player?
Rob Mead investigates.
( g omputer games are evil.
* They are the primary . Cause of car crime, under- J age sex,
rape, murder and pub violence, while the children and adults
who play such games are depraved, insatiably sadistic mon
sters.Unbelievable? Well, that's the story according to tabloid
editors and producers of TV programmes such as World in Action
who have launched something of a moral crusade against the
games industry over recent months.
Now the industry umbrella organisation the European Software Publishers' Association (ELSPA) has struck back with a system of self-regulation, a classification system which is being introduced to steal the tabloids' thunder and allay the fears of parents and politicians .
The charter is a crucial document outlining commitments and guidelines from the games industry. These are the main points... THE ELSPA GAMES PLAYERS’ CHARTER Scare stories The medio first turned its attention on the games industry in January of lost year. Both the Daily Mail and The Sun printed a story (Nintendo killed my son) about the tragic death of Jasminder Bassi who suffered an epileptic fit while playing video games on his TV.
Although it is more likely that Jasminder's condition was triggered by the flickering of the TV screen and was not the result of playing games, it was enough to unleash a spate of scare stories about video games.
The members of ELSPA agree to: Help parents make Informed choices about their children's game playing.
Issue an age suitability rating for each game as a guideline for parents Help lead the Itght against pornographic and Illegal software Follow the Video Standards Council's Code ot Practice ELSPA asks parents to: Help us encourage children to follow the guidelines listed below Check what children are playing as you would oversee what they watch TV.
Check the suitability of the age range of the games they are playing.
Watch out for pirated or Illegal software and report It to the police or ELSPA Zool and a friend help launch the ELSPA games rating scheme.
Copies of ELSPA’s Parents' Guide to Computer and Video Games and Gameplayer’s Charter should be available from your local games stockist.
Footle platformer Soccer Kid gets a Suitable For All rating thanks to its cute gameplay and colourful graphics.
GAMES CENSORSHIP APRIL 1 994 which contain a higher violent or sexual content. These will be subject to classification by the BBFC (British Board of Film Censors).
Central to the new system is the Video Standard Council's Code of Practice which effectively prevents certain kinds of act being portrayed in computer games. These are: Sexual interrourse Random and gratuitous violence Excessive tasteless nudity Aggression towards vulnerable women and children Excessive blood and gore Racial hatred Alcohol and drug abuse Encouragement of tobacco use Encouragement of criminal acts Use of sexual expletives Every game released by ELSPA’s 62 members will be judged against the above criteria and classified.
Games such as Zool and Sensible Soccer will be deemed Suitable For All, Jurassic Pork will get an 11-14 rating and Mortal Kombata 15-17 classification.
Astoundingly, the classifications will not be awarded by the BBFC, Video Standards Council or even ELSPA, instead individual software houses will decide for themselves
* • It's easy to dismiss the scare stories, but the games
industry was rattled. ” what classification a particular game
deserves. Obviously such a system appears open to abuse, but
according to ELSPA secretary Roger Bennett, this is unlikely.
He says: "If publishers want to incorporate elements in a
game which may push it over a certain age group in terms of the
voluntary scheme, that's entirely up to them. But you have to
bear in mind that the attention of the media is on the trade as
a whole and, at the sharp end, it's the retailer who is getting
most of the flak."
The reason for publishers classifying their own games is ostensibly a practical one. To submit each and every game to the BBFC for classification would hold up games for months as John Pascoe, Operations Manager at the Video Standards Council explains: "Computer and video games are enormously complex and getting Sex scenes In any cose, most games will be suitable for all, so it's unlikely that your enjoyment will be affected to any great extent. The only danger is that some programmers and publishers will include gratuitous violence and sex scenes so a game will receive an 18+
certificate,making it unobtainable, and therefore more sought after, by younger gamesplayers.
Because ELSPA's scheme is European-wide, you won't be able to hop over the Channel and buy games software elsewhere if you can't get it in this country (except perhaps in free-thinking Italy).
Eventually all countries, including the US and Japan, will adopt a regulatory scheme for computer and video games.
The problem is that ELSPA has no real power to prevent retailers or publishers from subverting the scheme, they can only express concern and exclude software houses from membership of EISPA.
However, if the industry's attempts at self-regulation fail, Government legislation, and all the bureaucracy, bungling and meddling it entails, will become a sad reality.
You have been warned.
More so... It would not be practical for the BBFC to ploy through every level of every game published in order to classify them."
Computer game retailers such as Virgin, Future Zone and FtMV have also thrown their weight behind the scheme, so it's unlikely that kids will be able to buy 18 Certificate games from legitimate retailers, although there will always be those who try and those who succeed.

Computer and video games 1oserl Hi ho! Hi Ho! It'* off to wort* you go. This particularly tasty bit of "For one last time HAL. Open the bloody pod bay doors!" Oops, tunnel is the route you take to your submersible death machine. Wrong movie. Back to destroying Axiom ships It Is then.
I IH a HI s o THIS is the one... this IS the one... This is the ONE... we've been waiting for. The immortal words of the Stone Roses. And I'm sore that when they wrote those words, they were thinking (using some bizarre clairvoyant powers brought on by prolonged living in Madchester and taking mind-expanding drugs) about Psygnosis' first CD 1 game, Microcosm.
We have had our fair share of CD games, there are now more than 50 of them on shiny silver disc, and the number increases with every passing week. But, let's face it, most of them are simply A1200 games with CD quality music.
In some particularly poor cases, they are even A600 games on CD, with no enhancement to the soundtracks. So far, there have only been two real CD games issued for CD 2. And Microcosm is the second. But it is The One.
I am going to go on a bit here, so for those who are getting restless: Microcosm is an average (OK a bit better than average) into-the-screen shoot-em-up. It takes place on a planet called Bodor in the Bator system. The storyline, and on CD these are far more important than they ever were on floppy, involves two warring corporations, CyberTech Inc and Axiom.
Microcosm is a cyberpunk game which involves the hugely powerful, faceless corporations, and is set in a technologically-advanced, dark and moody future.
One of the corporations gets its boot boys to inject the president of the other corporation. But this injection contains something more sinister than a few milligrams of arsenic oxide. This injection has a whole host of micro miniaturised killing machines, bent on reaching the right hemisphere of the big cheese's brain and taking control of his conscious thought processes.
By buying this game, you have volunteered to be miniaturised, and injected into the cardio-vascular system of Cybertech's president Korsby, GAME REVIEW APRIL 1994 C'mon up to the lab. See what's on the slab. Korsby's body assumes the position, it’s your job to save him.
You see that ugly bloke with the green complexion? That’s you that is. And your ship is about to crash.
Where you will fight to the death with Axiom's forces, to retain the sanity of your Chief Executive Officer.
Once the flash intro is over. We're talking serious flash, this is multi-storey rhodium-plated flash that has been buffed with Duraglit, you are left with a straightforward into-the-screen shoot-em-up.
Sure, there are several different styles, depending on what area of the body you are in. There are several different types of craft for you to use in order to wage your war against the corporate micro-invaders. But when all is said and done it's just a game of Space Harrier.
You have to travel through the brains, bones and lobes of that when they do combine those talents with this technology, computer games will be changed forever.
Don't buy this and expect to be completely addicted to the gameplay forever. It is decent, it is difficult and it is smooth, fast and huge. Buy this and expect to have your socks blown off.
Expect to go wow! Every time you load it up for the first month. Buy this to make anyone who ever said the Amiga wasn't as good as their consoles eat their words.
Buy it to listen to the excellent soundtrack. Buy this... and watch out for the next wave of CD32 games. I've seen the future and it's awesome!
Marcus Dyson In the sclerotid vein, or somewhere similar. Most ot the big green things you find In Microcosm are not friendly. Shoot them. This one is friendly, but shoot it anyway, it gives extra energy, shield or other such fab pick-up style bonuses.

With this software solution you may double the capacity of your floppy disk or hatd disk drives. The installation process takes only a few seconds and afterwards DiskExpandcr works invisible in the background. The compression ratios vary from 30% to 70% depending upon the used compression-algorithms and upon the kind of data.

But the problem is, many of the (four out of eight) disciplines involve a great deal of joypad waggling which tends to turn your fingers blue. And this starts to annoy you after a short while.

A slick os a sidekick, now there's a novel idea. Bubba's a delivery man and after being kidnapped in a spaceship full of creatures bound for a zoo, he teams up with Stix - he's the stick sidekick if you hadn't caught on - in an attempt to escape incarceration.
An odd tale admittedly, but it makes for one heck of game. Five levels of platforming combined with some fiendish puzzles _ to solve will have you tearing your hair with frustration. But Bubbo V Slix is quirky, the cartoony graphics look great and there are some superb thwacking noises to boot.
It’s a cruet world. Long-time rival Gary Gritter has ‘borrowed’ Chuck's chick (cheeky chap) Ophelia (I won't even say It) and now the quest Is on to release her from his evil clutches. Charles has a huge beer belly, a decent kick and he can lift rocks at will - essential Stone Age skills.
It's a simple affair - jump the platforms, solve the odd puzzle: and the soundtrack will drive everyone within earshot mad. Prehistoric platform mayhem and decent, if dated fun.

Hyperion has simple 3D polygon graphics, but the gameplay makes up for that, because it is difficult to handle, especially when you get to the later missions. A good game at a realistic price, it wouldn't cause embarrassment in an enthusiastic game player's collection.

Ow here's on interesting little teaser. One hundred quite literally block-bustingly mazemungous levels, ranging from dead-easy to downright difficult. You control a string of rotating balls which you navigate by clicking either the left or right mouse button to anchor one or reverse the direction of the balls, respectively.
In each level the exit is obstructed by blocks which crumble as your balls hit them revealing different things according to their attributes. Some hold bonuses, extra lives and other goodies, while others contain nasty spiky things that break your balls. (No, sniggering in the back there, Jenkins!)

Like Hero Quest, Sorasil simplifies the whole character generation process by giving each a set of attributes which you can customise to a limited extent on the Character Modification Screen. Of the eight characters you can choose from to make up your band of four, each by the amount of moves and hit points they can take. The gome also features a useful automapping function which shows the layout of a particular area and any hazards which lie in wait.

Weird times. 99 most of the Amiga's considerable capabilities and you feel as if you're playing something which was programmed four to five years ago. But, this game is remarkably easy to get into and there are always plenty of surprises and fight sequences lying just around the corner.
Thankfully, Legacy also improves on Hero Quest's occasionally cumbersome control system and, thanks to some imaginative programming, its characters never get stuck, or hidden by objects or walls.
It all adds up to a tremendously absorbing and surprisingly playable adventure which serves as a worthwhile introduction to an often unfathomable genre.

The cause of this strange phenomenon was Dungeons 'n' Dragons, a series of role-playing board game adventures which spawned countless imitators on the Amiga, including Hero Quest, Legacy of Sorasil1 s predecessor.
This time you lead as many as four adventurers around nine scenarios which together form one campaign, the aim of which is to free the land of Rhia from the forces of evil.

Imagine not being allowed to foul anyone In the box - unthinkable.
As the team boss, you can check your fixture list for the season and plan your holidays, and evening classes to avoid clashes and other inconveniences.
Bit of a shame. But top marks to Krisalis for inputting a serious amount of team and player data. But no matter how many options there are, the important action takes place out on the park and if it plays Steve Bradley is a great admirer of Manchester United, so imagine his excitement when this new footie game landed on his desk.
Leeds Utd Strip? Strip 3 Krisalis have really done their homework on you. But It's great for sad. Tralnspotter-type Prepore for on AMIGA footballing overload in the coming months. Why? It's World Cup yeor don't you know, and because our lot didn't get there we jolly well won't be watching it. So there.
Come Summer, there are likely to be another five, six, maybe even seven new footer games released and the burning question is, will we still be playing Sensible Soccer or is there a pretender to the crown? To find out whether Manchester United Premier League Champions is that pretender, read on. It isn't.
This is Krisalis' third in the er, trilogy of all three Manchester United licences. Unlike the previous two which used a side-on perspective, this one is viewed from above.
Essentially, Manchester United Premier League Champions (from now on we'll call it MUPLQ is a mix of Sens bte-style arcade action combined with elements usually found in footie management sims. So you can either play a single game, or manage and play for a team throughout a season which involves both league and cup runs.
Sounds OK so far?
Manchester United don't actually play a huge part in this. The club badge is on the credits along with Incie and The Boy Born With a Silver Football in His Mouth, but it's more a general footer game, so whether you love, loath, or are completely indifferent to Fergie's Red Devils it matters not a jot.
East Fife four Mind, you have to listen to the crowd chanting: "Ferguson's red and white army". There's good news for fans of non-league teams because along with all the English clubs, there are a fair few sides from the lower end of the pyramid.
So you can play that Northwich Victoria versus Wilton Albion derby match you always promised yourself.
No Scottish teams though, which is a badly, you really won't care how many blokes colled Terry ploy for Bromsgrove Rovers. The top down view is tried and tested and it works fine. In foct, MUPLC visually resembles Sensible Soccer quite closely.
The first thing you notice is the speed
- it's phenomenally fast, perhaps too fast. And although this can
make for exciting action, it does make it difficult to ploy a
short, controlled passing game. Krisalis really had the the
kits. This may not seem Important to football fans like myself.
UNITED CHAMPIONS Ryan Giggs Is the toast ot British soccer.
His dad played rugby for Cardiff.
“ The game is an admirable attempt to combine both arcade action and management 99 The bah really does get stuck In the muck on the Muddy pitch. Still, the Bristol derby matches are never the most attractive of affairs.
Right idea (imitate Sensible Soccer), and to a certain extent they've succeeded. Unfortunately, MUPLC isn't as fluid or smooth as its Sensible counterpart, which is not to say it's bad, just that it could be better All the teams have differing abilities. Man Utd are real sharpshooters with superquick players whereas say, Altrincham, are a bit easier to turn over. Krisalis have included something called a TactiGrid, which enables you to position and utilise your players wherever you wish.
Up to tour players can compete over a full season of league and cup matches. Here we see Steve, Rupert. Knocker and Scott putting their tactical wits to the test.
And it works quile impressively. If you want all 10 outfield players to hug the right touchline, you can do it. And if you fancy changing tactics during the game you can zip to your TactiGrid and have a quick reshuffle.
Anyway, here's a few bad things about MUPLC. The borders around the screen are • tad wide - why?
Couldn't they make the pitch any bigger? Match length is a standard four minutes, no more, no less.
Considering that this game has over 3,000 players, each with individual statistics, surely they could have given us an option to play for a little bit longer. Distributing the ball from ihe goalkeeper accurately is tough, particularly if you want to just roll it to the full back.
Forfar five So where does MUPLC stand? Firstly, although it isn't as good as Sensible Soccer, its many features make it a viable alternative, particularly for one player wishing to guide a squad through a season. But as a two player game, it falls somewhat short of Sensible's pride and joy and after playing MUPLC for a while, I felt the urge to boot up the old Sensi disks and play that instead. And I did.
Krisalis have made an admiral, if flawed attempt to combine addictive, arcade action with the rigours of management. And with a little more attention to detail on the arcade side, MUPLC could have been a real beauty - it is considerably better than the first two. As it is, it's my second favourite football game and if you're looking for a change from Sensible Soccer, MUPLC is the the best alternative.
Iffi The crowd noise is quite fuzzy but the chants are good. Rather overage overall.
In one player mode, this is probably the best footie game if you play the whole season.
PLAYABILITY fit hi The TactiGrid works well ond although I find the game a bit fast and furious, it's still fun.
“ I'm impressed.
MUPLC has successfully combined arcade action and management tactics. Not quite in the Sensible class on playability, but it's heading the chasing pack. 99 31% JA3IA3U 3WVO tr66 L HhdV CHAMPIONSHIP MANAGER IT IA guide a squad of players through a season and beyond. You can buy and sell players, loan them, insure them, fine them, in fact, do everything Big Ron or Harry can. All the players have ratings for skills such as passing, tackling and shooting and you must get them to gel as a team.
Italian league football enjoys an increasingly high profile now that Channel Four broadcast three shows a week, and without that coverage, it's unlikely Championship Manager Italia would have seen the light of day. How much did anyone know about the players and teams two years ago?
Little more than nowt I'd wager.
Serie-A is the most glamorous of all European leagues and let's face it, if you're a footie fan, you wouldn't turn down the chance to manage Internazionale or Juventus.
CM! (well I'm not going to write Championship Manager Italia every two minutes) is virtually identical to Championship Manager ‘93 in format and contains detailed info about Serie-A and B teams as well as Serie- C player details.
Pasta ball to me Everything is beautifully laid out leaving you to think about what to do with the team rather where you're supposed to click the mouse next.
From career histories to individual statistics and transfer activity, CMI has everything the boss could ever need bar a sheepskin coat. The attention to detail is meticulous.
For those unfamiliar with footie management sims, the idea is to Pre-season friendlles can provide ideal preparation for the coming campaign.
Unless you get beaten by Leeds, that is.
I ¦ ¦ o I i. ILL Leeds Utd Pizza the action Management sims are amazingly popular, with five entering the Amiga Format top 30 last month - two in the top 10. The long-lasting appeal of these games is due to their addictive qualities. You always want to play one more game.
The major benefit Championship Manager Italia has over CM '93 is that it runs a good deal faster, thus eliminating the frustrating periods of waiting around.
If you enjoy footie management or if you have more than a passing interest in Italian league football Championship Manager Italia is excellent value.
Steve Bradley O You don't actually get to see the lads out on the park doing the business, but each team has a set of three moving bars denoting defence, midfield and attack, and a series of on-screen comments provide information on how the game is progressing Sounds a bit naff, but it works well.
That bit on the previous page about Steve admiring Manchester United was a lie. He is a Leeds-loving. Yorkshire bitter-swilling, ferret and whippet man through and through.

One minute the problem is that an unknown entity called the Unborn is stretching its destructive fingers around your world, causing its people to die in untold torment.
As leader of an elite band of six Psionic warriors, only you can solve the mystery and save your people from a fate worse than endless Little and Large re-runs. If you haven't guessed by now, Perihelion is a futuristic role-playing adventure in which you explore a variety of locations, including cities and the obligatory dungeons, in search of clues to help you on your quest The first thing this game makes a great play of is its seriousness as a proper role-playing adventure.

GAME REVIEW APRIL 1994 Bucktoothed Betty Sue Dubrovskl Is a whizz on a swing and causes Dennis all kinds ot problems at the end of Level Two of Ocean's platform escapade.
From Dennis the Menace to the Perishers, the anarchic, scruffy kid has been the mainstay of comics, books and movies for years. Now a similar American incarnation has surfaced in the shape of Ocean's latest film licence game.
The seven-year-old hero of Dennis is in big trouble, as usual.
Not only has he lost all of Mr Wilson's precious coin collection, but his friends Joey and Margaret have been kidnapped by the evil Switchblade Sam. The aim of this platformer is to explore each of four different worlds, ond their associated sub-levels, collecting coins and battling baddies as you go. Ho hum.
If the startlingly derivative plot fails to capture your imagination, wait until you start playing the game. Graphically it looks like a cross between Sleepwalker (Dennis looks suspiciously like the somnambulistic Lee) and Alternative Software's Sooty and Sweep. It's hideous and certainly not worth £25 of anyone's money. The game- play is little better. The nasties keep coming back every time you kill them and your so-called special weapons (a pea-shooter, catapult and a water pistol) are virtually useless. There are plenty of power-ups and courage-building sweets, but Dennis still dies
remarkably often anyway.
By far the worst bits are the appalling soundtrack and teeth-clenchingly bad sound effects. And the CD22 version is little better. Ocean must hove paid a lot for this licence, but since the movie was a flop the game is likely to go the same way. Avoid.
Rob Mead Icon do that There are plenty of other minor niggles too - the pretentious stream of tiny text along the bottom of the screen, the occasionally fiddly icon- based controls and the hopelessly linear plot could easily find you pointing a laser gun at your temple.
Yet despite all these drawbacks, Perihelion is reasonably playable thanks to some atmospheric graphics, music and sound effects, and an absorbing plot. You really do want to know what this destructive Unborn thing is and how you can defeat it.
Rob Mead £ tiresome when you hove to type in every single thing you want to know only to get booted out if you get the wrong answer.
It’s also pretty hard work finding your way around the different locations since one corridor looks pretty much like another and there is no auto-mapping feature and few landmarks to tell you where you are.
44 It's certainly atmospheric and, at times, very absorbing, but the cumbersome controls mean the game never really rises above the average. 99 DENNIS PROGRAMMERS In-house PUBLISHER Ocean 061-832 6633 PRICE £25.99 CD32 version £19.99 RELEASED Out now IV APRIL 1 994 GAME REVIEW Mm®on§ VWVVOyw t r * UuiUUiliU i *' a uuuu Tliil PLAYABILITY S :nr*H*nu!ii: mmmm i NAUGHTY AND NICE TIPS One of the best features of Naughty Ones is the simultaneous two player option. If | you are playing two-players, remember that It sometimes makes more sense to send the player with the greater number of lives
into a room to collect the key, while the other player waits for the baddies to be defeated, collects the extra lives, and then legs it to the exit. Naughty Ones Is available In both AGA and non-AGA versions, | and a CD32 version Is due for release In April or May.
|H |d|D! '.
E E 3 k|j : Bm I , ;ja|TbiI~ f 1 One of you hits the switch and the other takes a ride over the spikes to the key.
Anyone foncy a quick game of Naughty Ones in the back room?" The normally tranquil, yet highly-industrious, Amiga Format office was a blur of falling chairs and rushing bodies as the team legged it towards the door.
The nimble Frank Bartucca looked favourite to make it first, but a timely shoulder charge by Sue While sent him sprawling into Marcus Dyson and a heavy-breathing Sue pipped Julie Tolley to the door.
"Me, me, me, me," squeaked Sue. "I want to play Naughty Ones, what do I have to do?"
"Just grab the joystick Sue, and we'll get down to business."
And so it was that Susan White learned that Naughty Ones is an excellent new platform game from Interactivision that can be played in one or simultaneous two-player mode, and I learned lots of interesting new swear words as we whiled the afternoon away.
When we started, I observed that the graphics and gameplay seemed to leave a bit to be desired.
"Looks knob to me," ventured Ms White. But we persevered: "Let’s suck it and see," said Sue. So we sucked and we saw that Naughty Ones is an intriguing platform game 's tricky in some parts, and easy in others. It's bright and bouncy, but not sickeningly cutesy. It's on ideal game for kids, but still offers o challenge and stacks of enjoyment for the more experienced games player.
You control John and Jim and guide them through five worlds on o quest to defeat the evil king. The worlds consist of linked rooms, and you must find a key in each of them to progress to the next.
Power-ups give you bouncing killer shots, extra lives, extra speed, or vertical killer shots, and occasionally you will stumble over a hidden bonus room or need to find a switch to uncover a hidden platform.
The baddies include robots, blobby things, soldiers, plasma death bolts, mummies, crocodiles, spiders, birds and clocks, most of which are easily dispatched, but some of which require thought, perseverance and split-second timing.
"Let me jump on the bear with the balloon.
Why's it called Naughty Ones?" Squealed Sue.
"I don't know."
"Hit the switch to turn on the thing to take me over the gap.
Why's it called Naughty Ones?"
Repeated Sue.
"I really don't know."
"Jump on the lift! Mind the acid, mind the acid! Why's it called Naughty Ones?" Shrieked Sue.
"I DON'T KNOW!!!"
Richard Jones “ I* can't boast flash graphics or a huge number of levels, but what Naughty Ones has got is stacks of gameplay. It's an original, enjoyable and challenging platform romp ** When did platformers ever have anything other than a blippety- blippety blip-blip soundtrack?

AWARD WINNERS OLD EDITION ( riPI Empire 081 -343 7337 ¦ £29.99 So if you divide the £30 you pay for the compilation by four games, you get £7.50. Hey, that’s pretty cheap for the best game ever. In the whole wide world.
SENSIBLE SOCCER 92 93 EDITION Reviewed AF42 80% Wow! What a way to kick off a compilation. If you haven't heard about this game, where have you been? Even Lord Lucan and the lost Amazonian tribe of the Naskatowans are proficient Sensible players. It's the smoothest, sweetest and most gorgeous of football games. Heaps of options, loads of teams and amazing playability ensure SS's place in the Pantheon where games such as these lounge on thrones, while being fed grapes by Kick Off 2.
JIMMY WHITE'S WHIRLWIND SNOOKER Reviewed AF26 91% Without going into too much detail about Jws game engine, it will suffice to say that there are about 164 million different shot permutations. And that's a lot. But the beauty of Whirlwind Snooker is its simplicity. You can pick it up in five minutes, yet the intricacies of the gameplay ensure it's longevity. The 3D view looks great, the balls move realistically and you can do everything that Stephen Hendry can do - after a bit of practice. Tremendous.
ZOOL Reviewed AF39 95% Phew! Ninety-five per cent. Me thinks our beloved Ed enjoyed this game back in 1992. And it's not difficult to see why with seven exciting, varied and colourful worlds (including a shoot-em-up level) to blast through. Zool is a superfast, supersmooth platformer, whatever folk say, he does look a bit like an ant. You shoot, kick, punch, collect, skid - everything you would expect to do in a platform game, and then some more. And it looks fantastic. One of the best of the genre.
ELITE Reviewed AF5 75% David Braben's famous space trading game is an open-ended adventure where you choose a strategy and then search the galaxy for booty. The more conservative route to financial well-being is trading but the cavalier path is that of space brigand.
10 10 Great 3D visuals and the opportunity to shoot it out in the skies ensure that it will not be forgotten. Plus the fact that it keeps cropping up on compilations.
Lester Chaykln never believed It could happen... but it didl He fell over.
ANOTHER WORLD Kixx XL 021-625 3311 ¦ £14.99* AF3I 82% To quote the back of the box: While experimenting with sub-atomic particles, Lester's laboratory was struck by lightning teleporting him Into another dimension’. Bad luck, eh? This Is, to 'all tense and purpose' (odd phrase) the prequel to the rather marvellous Flashback. And although Another World doesn't hit the heights of Flashback, there are similarities - it's a graphic adventure with fluid, realistic clnematlc-style graphics (great sound effects too) and a one-bloke-against-the-world plot. The gaming area Is huge, and It's
Intriguing stuff. Recommended.
8 10 THUNDERHAWK Corkers 0332 297797 ¦ £9.99 ¦ Reviewed AF26 90% Helicopter fun here with six campaigns across the continents to tackle, each split Into 10 missions. I say fun, but you actually have to kill people. But hey. When you're sitting at home with a cup of tea It's so much easier to pull the trigger. And action-packed It Is, with enemies galore and bombs and bullets aplenty both to shoot and avoid. In fact, It's one of the most exciting flight slms around and a great buy for a tenner.
8 10 Pursuing the Death Angel makes quite a pleasant change from pulling up folk who look like the sorts who haven't got an MOT.
"Too bad you have to work.
POLICE QUEST Kixx XL 021 -625 3311 ¦ £ 16.99 ¦ Not previously reviewed.
Cop a load of this er, copper, for that is you. Police Chief Whipplestick has requested you haul your oss and apprehend the Death Angel. "Just give me 24 hours boss, just 24 hours and I'll wash all the scum off the streets," you reply, probably. Police Quest is a point V click affair where you search for clues and turn the fire hose on suspects. Graphically it's, shall we say, basic? It's also not wildly exciting so you'll soon be watching Shoestring again.
Take Larry on cruise of the seediest parts In pursuit of the hedonistic lifestyle so common In chaps that wear leisure suits.
LEISURE SUIT LARRY 1 Kixx XL 021 -625 3311 ¦ £16.99 Reviewed AF35 53% Does the title mean that Lorry dons o shell suit to paint the town red? Larry is in serious pursuit of female attention and in glorious 3D. Your mission is to drink, gamble and maybe even pick up a chick if your luck's in, while negotiating your way through all the seediest parts of town, solving puzzles along the way. Sadly, Leisure Suit Larry looks and sounds poor (and it's deathly slow- moving), though some will undoubtedly empathise with Larry's problems.
5 10 APRIL 1994 Corkers (0332) 297797 ¦ £9 99 ¦ Reviewed AF39 89% And all because Barry Norman's coming tomorrow. Scenario, rival Him company steal the reels of your latest film the day before the premiere Protagonist: you I name. Clutch Cable). Plot: search the six Him sets for the canisters. These include wild west, black and white and scWi. And the baddies and weapons are themed accordingly Big cartoon-styte graphics give Premiere a distinctive character although It does tend to get a tad repetitive after a while. But heh. Its origl nal. Quirky and fun.
The Jaguar is such a fast car they named a speedy South American cat after It.
JAGUAR XJ2RO Corkers 0332 297797 ¦ £9.99 ¦ Reviewed AF37 83% Stylish little motor the XJ220. Unfortunately. I had to trade mine In for a Fiesta Popular recently. You know how K Is. Anyway, your task Is to race across 12 countries, each with three tracks against folk with equally expensive motors.
Each country has different driving conditions and there Is also a financial management section. Eeh, the cost of Insurance If you're under 25 - terrible.
Jaguar XJ220 gets rather dull though after you've mastered the rudiments, and falls somewhat behind the excellent Lotus 2.
LIBERATION - CAPTIVE II Mindscape 0444 246333 M £29.99 M CD 2 version reviewed AF55 91% Well, I’m Just glad I'll be dead by then. Corruption Is rife in the 29th Century, Man Utd have won the league again and It costs £488 for a pint of bitter. The world is being exploited by Mg corporations and, oh God, someone's put Joy Division on the office ghetto blaster (true). I can't stand it any longer. ("Steve. Steve. Is everything all right?"). Law enforcement droids have gone bonkers and started killing folk and a resultant cover-up ends in Innocent folk being framed tar the murders and held
captive.
Corks. Sounds Jolty unfair. You've got to get them out. Liberation is an Interactive adventure game and It looks fabulous. The CD32 version received rave notices • the floppy version Is five quid cheaper and recognises the AGA chip which enhances the music accordingly. Captivating.
9 10 Kixx XL 021-625 3311 £14.99 Not previously reviewed Feeble kings and kingdoms, knights called Sir Graham and a search for mystical treasures to restore the kingdom to its former Maybe taking on rescuing the king- glory are the order of the day in this 3D dom was a foolhardy decision. Adventure game. It’s got all the usual puzzle-solving and character interaction, as well as much wandering about. Fans of adventure games should enjoy this medieval romp despite the fact that it's a few years old and not the most sophisticated of fare.
“We have ourselves a hostage situation.' That's what they say at meetings before the soldiers go to work. I saw It on the tetly.
SECOND SAMURAI AGA Psygnosis 051-709 5755 £29.99 Reviewed in non-AGA form AF53 91% Punch, kick and slash your way through 10 levels ot platform, cum puzzle, cum beat- em-up action In this excellent sequel to the, erm. First one that came sometime before.
The graphics have been suitably enhanced though It remains much the same as the original release and the samples are harlkarlmungous.
In simultaneous two-player mode. Second Samurai excels and you can play as both friends and enemies. There are end of level baddies to tackle and check out the shoot-em-up section where you fly along a road powered by Jetpack. Furious fun, yet plenty of head-scratching puzzles to solve make Second Samurai one to play for weeks to come.
9 10 JURASSIC PARK A500 A600 Ocean 061-832 6633 £25.99 AGA version reviewed AF55 70% Previously available as AGA only, Jurassic Park gets a multi-format outing and the price has been cut by two quid. So it doesn't look quite as good. So what?
Well, to be candid, looks are the most impressive part of JP because much of the gameplay is a let-down. Sure, there's a huge gaming area and it does have some fetching and atmospheric 3D point-of-view perspective levels but, on the whole, it's a disappointment. Too much wandering around and not enough action.
7 10 EYE OF THE BEHOLDER SABRE TEAM AGA Kixx XL 021 -625 3311 £ 16.99 ¦ Reviewed AF24 92% Krisalis 0709 372290 I AF41 87% 9 10 8 10 Thrills, spills and spells are on menu In this role-playing game classic. For starters, generate a team of adventurers and take trip beneath the city of Waterdeep. Each member has their own quirks and particular abilities which they develop through experience. The mission? To smash an unholy alliance conspiring to commit dirty deeds. It’s a real maze of corridors and passages beneath the city and it won’t be long before you're hopelessly lost. Eye of the
Beholder has some excellent sound effects, a plethora of dreadful-looking creatures to tackle and an enormous gaming area. So If you like to role-play, and don't mind the odd fright, this Is choice fare. An Amiga classic.
Armed force shenanigans as you command a team of SAS-type blokes In this strategy game, given an AGA upgrade over a year after It s first appearance. All of the usual elements are involved - team members have dlffenng abilities, there's an arsenal where you can pick up weapons and the Idea Is to rescue hostages or disable enemy weapons. Or jump through windows on a rope while wearing a black balaclava.
The whole thing’s been speeded up. Full-colour screens have been added, along with extra speech.

In Terminator 2: The Arcade Version try this cheat if you are stuck on a level.
When the game has loaded select your control method at the options screen as usual. Instead of going to Start Game press Esc.
Wait for the high score chart with TemMo' A-st you don’t succeed, then, like Jamie s dad by. By, .1 - . R .1 * , try and try again. Makes you wonder If ago Is related to performance.
The picture of the T-l 000 to appear. As soon as the last digit is printed on the high score chart (the last 0 on the 10000, in 10th place), click the left mouse button (or the joystick fire button if that's plugged in to port one).
Note that you must click the button 0.19 seconds after the last digit on the score chart has been printed on the screen. If you take longer, or click before the last digit is printed, the cheat will not work, so precise timing is required. If you find this difficult, there is an alternative. Hold down Fire at the high score table until it is finished. This won't always work though. Go back to the options screen. If you can see the picture of Arnie, but no options are displayed, then the cheat has worked. Left click on the mouse (or joystick) to move on. Click again to skip the high score
display. If you allow the high score chart to be printed again the game may mess up. Start the game.
If the cheat doesn't work (the option screen is printed as normal) press Esc and try again on the high score chart - your timing was probably not accurate. It is very difficult I can usually only do it one time out of five, so keep on trying. For the record, my dad took 30 times to get it right!
Once you've got the cheat to work ond started the game, you will notice (after the writing has finished) that a gunpowder and energy reading is displayed for player two even though he isn't active. Now pause the game (press P not FI) and type in all the function keys in order (FI, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9 and F10) and you should skip the level you are presently ploying.
The only disadvantage about this is that you will not be able to play in two-player mode when the cheat is active.

And here's a cheat for Zool. Everyone knows the old cheat - when the game starts wait tor the high score screen to appear, type In Goldfish and press Enter. The keys F2, F3 etc. will transport Zool to the level with the corresponding number. But once play has begun pressing 1 will make Zool Invincible. (He'H flicker white when this Is done.) Pressing 2 will transport him to the next section (such as 2.2 or 2.3) and pressing 3 will take him to the next complete level. Pressing 4 will make Zool explode. This Is a good one tor those who feel guilty with the other cheats.
PART 2 PART 2 PART 2 PART 2 PART 2 PART 2 PART 2 PART 2 PART 2 PART 2 FRONTIERS ELITE SHIPS Amiga Format reader Jonathan Tasker completes his tips in this, the second and final, part of his guide to David Braben’s classic galactic trading game, Frontier.
SHIPS & EQUIPMENT You start off with a pretty useless ship. It's got hardly any cargo space and it's not great for trading. Because it has only got a 1MW pulse laser and no room for shields, it's not very good in combat either. But you can make the most of a bad situation after you make some money. First, fit a Class One military drive, and remove your missiles. Then fit either a 4MW pulse laser, or a 1MW beam laser.
The Eagle long-range fighter, your starting ship. Yup, that’s you in the pilot’s seat, sporting the yellow helmet and trying to look hard. HI mum! Put the kettle on, luv. I’ll be back for tea.

There’s much more room for interesting illegal goods and deadly- weaponry. You’re a bit of a dark horse, aren't you?
Alternatively, you could always leave the space for cargo. From there, upgrade to a Viper defence craft, fitting a couple of shields, and a 1MW beam laser. Then the choice of ships is very much up to you. Personally I use a Cobra Mk 3 with 1MW beam lasers. Class Three Military drive (18 Light years) four shields, radar mapper, cloud analyser and an Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) system.

An Asp Explorer, loaded with extra*, including an ECM. A laser cooling unit and a hyperspace cloud analyser. Just the business tor assassination missions.
EQUIPMENT Here are a few rules for you to follow:
1. An ECM is essential. There's nothing more annoying than almost
destroying a ship only to be cruelly taken out by a missile!
Buy as soon as you can.
2. For your own missiles, use naval missiles, as they are more
powerful, and are unaffected by any ECM system.
The tougher opponents usually have one. They aren't much more expensive, and are worth the extra.
3. Buy a Radar Mapper. It only weighs a tonne, and soon pays for
Itself In bounty. It also gives you Invaluable Information on
your enemy's shields and equipment.
4. Get some shields! Buy as many of them as you can hold without
reducing your cargo space too much.
Remember, shields recharge for free, but your hull will stay damaged and it will cost you to repair It. Shields also offer protection against destruction by energy bombs.

Fodder Is proving undigestible and you need some spoon
feeding then take the AF handy hints after every meal and
It'll all go down lovely. Promise.
1. In Choppas. Land on the enemy to kill them - safer than
landing and getting out.
2. In missions In which you have control of a lot of troopers
separate the lowest ranking trooper from the rest and give him
all the weapons, make sure the rest are safe, then attempt the
mission with the one trooper. If the trooper dies just press
Esc.
This saves a lot of troopers later, such as In Mission 18 Phase 5 of 5 - The Doors.
3. Troopers are able to throw grenades quite along way and over
walls, trees and buildings. Use this to your advantage to
protect against Biggunz and Jeeps. To throw a grenade a long
way, simply position the pointer further than needed.
4. Buildings can be destroyed even If you can't see them. For
instance, If a trooper Is In a Blggun and there Is a building
slightly off the edge of the screen, roughly aim at the
building making sure the pointer is at the very edge of the
screen and Fire.
5. Leam to control Jeeps and Skldooz early on (how to skid them).
In later levels you may need good control to hit ramps at
correct angles otherwise you can blow up If you hit walls.
This Is also useful to get away from shells, rockets and
grenades.
6. An effective way of destroying snipers is to Just ran straight
towards them and shoot your guns. Don't waste grenades on them
unless It Is necessary.

5. Lasers are a matter of taste. Pulse lasers can actually do
more damage with a single shot, and don't overheat.
Beam lasers are easier to score a hit with, but you'll need to keep the ship in your sights to do real damage. Only get a cooling booster for 4MW beam lasers and above, with which It Is essential.

Just you and your trusty polygon against the universe - and it's a big one too. Frontier's play area Is huge, and we don't mean just very big. We're talking really seriously mega hugely huge.
6. Energy bombs are handy for emergencies. They destroy
unshielded and lightly-shielded ships. Use them when you are
being chased by squadrons of police Vipers. If an enemy uses
one against you, you'll see a halo of multicoloured stars
spinning around it.
7. Escape capsules are a complete waste of money and valuable
cargo space. If you use one you’ll keep your money, but lose
both your cargo and ship which will probably amount to more
than your cash. Worse still, you'll end up with only an Eagle
ship, so you're far better off loading a saved game.
8. Have a deluxe service every nine to 10 months at one of the
better-developed systems. If you neglect your ship. It's
liable to start breaking down when it's most inconvenient -
perhaps in the middle of combat.

Walt until you have a large well-equipped ship, then Jump to a Frontier System, or a Minimal Police Protection area, with enough fuel for a Jump to a friendly system. Power down your engines and put the time-advance on to maximum, broadcasting distress signals at intervals.
Sooner or later you'll be attacked! Another method of entering into combat which sometimes works is to Jettison a load of rubbish, then hang around the cloud of canisters and see if anybody decides to have a go at you. It's amazing how upset some people get when you Jettison a huge pile of rubbish In their part of the solar sytem.
GAME HINTS, TIPS AND HELP You will also be attacked more often H you are carrying an expensive cargo or illegal goods. Remember to be ready for a Jump in case things get too hot to handle. Some ships will follow you If they have a hyperspace cloud analyser. This Is even better if you have a Radar Mapper, because you can collect bounties from the scum who hang around the seedier parts of space.
IMPROVING YOUR SECURITY RATING Working for the Military of either side is a particularly good way to steadily and safely progress In the game. The Military are far stingier than the general public when It comes to paying you, but the work is fairly regular, and It's not too dangerous at first.
The best way to get Military work Is to go to one of the major bases such as Eta Casseopeia - Federation, or Facece
- Empire, and then scan the Bulletin Board’s Military adver
tisement to And out what missions are available.
The more you can take to a particular system, the quicker your rating rises. Missions with Secret or High Command in them involve a greater degree of risk, but they pay more, and count for more. Who knows, you may even get some medals.

LOST IN THE TRANSLATION In Issue 53 of Amiga Format, there is a solution for Part Four of Flashback.
The code is down as GOOD, but this doesn't work. In Part Seven, Issue 56, the code is down as HALL. That didn't work either, but next to the dot number one in the picture, the code is clearly shown as BOLD. This works. I was hoping you could send me the real code for Part Four.
There are two versions of Flashback available - one French, the other English. The level codes we printed for the complete solution were correct for the French version and we also printed oil the English codes in the Christmas Issue (AF54j. It appears you have an English version of the game, so the correct code for Part Four is GURT.
Advanced style of footle. In the transfer market, It’s best to look for bargains when you're In the lower divisions.
Experience Is useful, so don't spend all your money on one player ¦ spread It around several cheaper and older players and you'll find promotion to the next dlvF slon much easier.
It's fatal to rely too heavily on player history, especially where injuries and bad seasons are concerned. You should also try to keep players under contract. The longer the contract, the more they’re worth. Use scout reports, but don't rely on loaned players because they can’t play in cup competitions.
During the pre-season you should try out as many of your players as possible and organise friendlles so you can spot the weaknesses In the opposition teams.
You should also Insure your best players and rehabilitate them when they face a long lay-off.

BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER LESS?
It wasn't all that long ago that you could do almost everything it was possible to do on an Amiga with a plain A500, with another 512K of RAM up its bum and a second floppy drive hanging off the back.
Magazines got scores of letters every month from readers asking whether it was best to buy the extra RAM first, or the second floppy drive. The answer was invariably both, an investment in those halcyon days that would set you back almost £200, bringing your total hardware investment including the A500 itself, to about £600.
Almost all Amiga owners who wanted to do more than play games had absolutely no problem with this, but look at us now. The cheapest Amiga is the A600. Although it is now a discontinued line, there are still plenty of them jumping off retailers' shelves for about £100. Naturally this bargain price is attracting a lot of people.
Another floppy drive and another 1Mb of RAM is going to cost them about another £100.
Surprisingly, most new A600 owners immediately understand the need for more RAM. And more often than not they will buy another 1Mb at the same time as buying the A600. But suggest buying another floppy drive and most new users will give you a million reasons why they do not need one.
On the We'll put you in the picture etoout ppaint on page 110.
So, five years ago most new Amiga users were happy to invest £600 in their hardware, but new users today cannot justify spending even £200.
Just as the Amiga itself has matured, so has Amiga application software. Applications are bigger these days, requiring more RAM. Often an application's file size grows so large that it can no longer be run from floppy disk. Five years ago software manufacturers took pride in keeping their applications so small that they would run in 512K.
The same manufacturers take the same pride now in building applications that need four times as much memory just to load, and perhaps six or seven times as much memory to use creatively.
Now, a funny thing has happened. Manufacturers are not selling as much software as they used to.
Even though the Amiga user base is growing. Some blame it on piracy. Others, as I did in my column last month, ask if Coverdisks are harming the market But there may be a simpler reason.
If your software requires lots of RAM and runs from floppy like a one-legged dog, how can you expect to sell it to Amiga owners who do not own the required hardware? Instead of putting them down or complaining that "the Amiga applications market is not sophisticated enough', you should be developing applications that new owners can run.
I've got some software on my desk right now that is a truly excellent program. It's been around for quite a while, but it failed to sell and its price was reduced to less than £50, about a quarter of its original price. It was worth every penny of its original price, but it needs 4Mb of RAM and a hard drive.
Why couldn't the manufacturers see that the reason it didn't sell was not because it was poor software, but because the people they are trying to sell H to do not own the required hardware?
Reducing its price will make no difference. This company should have used their ingenious brains to work out how it could be run with less RAM and from floppy disk.
But that of course, would involve them actually doing some work to earn their money.
APRIL 1994 t NETWORKING THE FUTURE OF computing does not lie in bigger and faster machines, but in connecting computers and sharing their power.
It has been possible to connect many types of computer for several years. The Apple Macs we use for laying out Amiga Formal are all connected across a network and PC users can use Novell Netware to network their machines. L!p until now, there has been no comparable standard on the Amiga, although there have been several different systems which allow you, with differing degrees of success, to connect Amigas.
But Commodore have finally got their act together and released the Envoy networking system which provides an easy and standard way of joining Amigas together.
The idea behind Envoy is simple: you can connect several machines so that they can access each others hard disks as well as sharing a printer. This process is invisible to programs which are running, so they can access the disk of a remote machine as if it were connected to their machine. If you install and ran software from a remote disk an icon for it appears on your Workbench as with any other program. You can also set up the Amiga to prim to a printer connected to another machine, and again this process is invisible to the programs. This means that you could have several different
printers on a network, and switch between them as required. Envoy is a peer-to-peer system, which means that you don't have to have one central machine which acts as a file server.
Instead, even user on the Envoy network can access the hard disks and printer connected to any of the other machines.
But the really clever part of Envoy is the way that it deals with the hardware which sends and receives the information from the network.
Instead of talking directly to the hardware, Envoy works through a driver, which is written for the hardware used.
Commodore designed a standard (called Sana II) which defines exactly what this driver has to do. And how the software should talk to it. This information is widely available. So hardware manufacturers should hate no problem writing a driver for their own product.
This means that Envoy can work with any form of network hardware from a modem serial link to an Ethernet card, providing there is a driver written for it. As far as the user is concerned, the way machines are connected is irrelevant.
The most common method of connecting computers is a system called Ethernet, which uses a single cable running between all of the machines on the network. Not only can Envoy work quite happily with this system, but it can also work alongside other types of networks including ones for other machines such as Novell (for the PC) and Appletalk for the Mac.
Each of the bits of information passed around the network has a code attached which tells the computers which system it is intended for. This means that you can quite happily connect several Atnigas using the wiring for a Novell network with 110 problems, so you don't have to have two sets of network cables in your home or office.
Unfortunately you cannot pass information between the two different types of network, but it does make planning the wiring for your network an awful lot easier.
Don't you sometimes feel a bit sorry for your Amiga, sitting all on its own on your desk? It's not got much of a social life. Well, now you can introduce your machine to a new group of friends with the new Envoy software. Richard Baguley makes the connections... Although the ability to share resources such as disks and printers is a great benefit, you may not want everybody to have access to the contents of your hard disk, so even1 Envoy user is given a name which can be protected by a password. Only the people who know the password for the right user name can read your disk.
Alternatively, you could set up the network so only a select few could write to your hard disk, but everybody could read from it. You can also set Envoy to automatically send the output of a particular user to a certain printer, so you could have one user automatically printing to the laser printer connected to one machine, another to the dot matrix and a third to the John Bull printing set in the corner.
The speed at which data is transferred between machines depends on the type of connection between them, but I was able to copy a 500K file across our office between two Amigas linked together by ASDG LAN Rover cards in just under six seconds.
This is nowhere near as fast as with a hard disk connected to the machine, but it’s perfectly acceptable for everyday use, and has the benefit of having one large hard disk for everybody to use instead of a number of small ones.
There is a lot more to Envoy than just file sharing. It's all controlled through a set of libraries which can be easily accessed by other programs, so expect to see various programs updated to take this into account soon. This means that programs could co-operate with other copies of the program running on other machines, and share tasks between them.

system built in. So that you can limit who can do what to the
various disks which are accessible over the network.
You can even use the Lucy Off Line Reader program for CiX to see what sort of chips and how much memory other network users have.
HARDWARE THE HARD WAY?
Because you can use Envoy with any networking dling the Ariadne network card (£199.95), and device that has a driver written for it there are a can also supply Liana (£59.95), which uses the number of different ways to connect together varl- parallel ports to link together machines, ous types of Amigas. If you want to connect either an A1200 or an At the really cheap end, there's a program called A600 into a network, you can use Interworfc's Plip. Written by two gentlemen called Oliver Wagner PCMCIA Ethernet adaptors. These plug in to the and Michael Balzar, which uses a Pamet-style cable to
PCMICA slot of your Amiga, and are supplied connect two machines. The software side of it with SANA - II drivers, includes a SANA-11 driver, so you can use Envoy to They connect to other machines through link the two machines. It's not particularly fast but K either a 10BaseT or a 10Base2-style connection, it is cheap. Which means that you could network your A1200 There are several cards available for big box or A600 to any machine whkh supports either of Amigas such as the A2000, A3000 and A4000. ASDG these two popular Ethernet connections, have produced a Zorro II Ethernet card called the
LAN The Ethernet adaptors are available from Rover (available from Meridian on 081-543 3500 for Ramiga International on 0690 770304, and each around £250). Blittersoft (0908 220196) are now han- card will cost you £249.
A ray-tracing program, for example, could be rendering different frames of an animation on different machines and combining these together into the final animation on one of the disks.
WHICH WAY TO THE SOFTWARE?
Paul Beigle-Bryant of noted Amiga animators Foundation Imaging reckons: “Networking is the Anarchists supercomputer, because anybody can go out and do it. You can either go to the Cray corporation and buy one or nip down to Dixons and build yourself one."
Although there have been systems for connecting Amigas together before, none of them have been as flexible as Envoy, nor have they provided an all in one solution for two machines to several hundred. What's more you can happily have machines running Envoy and other networks on the same wiring, so there is no longer any need for the Amiga to be left out in the cold when it comes to talking to other machines. 'Tj Although Commodore have written Envoy, they have decided not to sell it themselves, because they don't have the resources to market and support it. In fact most of Commodore's
networking department now work for other companies.
The only way to get Envoy from Commodore is to pay to become a registered Amiga developer, which will cost you a minimum of £50. Contact Sharon McGuffie on 0628 770088 for details on how to join the developers programme. If you are a serious Amiga programmer, this may well be worth your while as it also gives you access to technical support and a number of developers tools.
However, Commodore have also licensed Envoy to other companies, who will be responsible for selling the software and supporting the end users. There are a number of companies who plan to bundle Envoy with their network hardware, but at the moment it's only obtainable from a company with the easy-to-remember name of Intangible Assets Manufacturing.
The company is run by Dale Larson, one of the people responsible for writing Envoy when he used to work for Commodore. He also offers support for Envoy through a variety of E-Mail services. A two-user version of Envoy will cost you 559.95 (around £35).
APRIL 199 At the moment there no UK distributor for Envoy has been confirmed, although several companies have expressed an interest. We'll keep you posted.

FOR THE HEWLETT PACKARD HP 310 PRINTER €49.95 INKJET PRINTERS Art Department The most highly-acclaimed Amiga image-processing package has gone through a major update. Nick veitch gives you the complete picture about ADPro2.5. IF YOU HAVE never heard of Art Department Professional (or ADPro lo its friends), then you must either be a new user or someone who has never really bothered with any software that doesn't work without a joystick.
Art Department has been the closest tiling to an industry standard for image- processing on the Amiga for many years.
But that's the problem.
It is a reliable old workhorse, but for some time, power users have been complaining that it is slow and clunky, that the interface is primitive, and that it doesn't really support AmigaDOS that well. These are the sort of gripes that you have to deal with when you’re regarded as the best.
This update, which in our opinion would probably have warranted a 3.0 tag rather than 2.5, attempts lo deal with these shortfalls. If you are an old hand ai ADPro, the first time you load up the new version vou will not feel at home.
PROFESSIONAL 2.5 The entire interface has changed.
The old low-res, four-colour screen is long gone and so are the chunky buttons.
Instead the .ADPro screen ran be forced to appear in any screen mode supported hv the Amiga's Display Database.
In effect this means you can force the ADPro screen to appear in any of the screen modes that open when you use the Workbench Screenmode Prefs program.
This includes the displays offered bv graphics cards such as the EGS Spectrum and the Rainbow.
It isn't just the display resolution that has changed. The ADPro control screen can now consist of up to three windows.
The primary window can be configured either as a collection of buttons (a tiny hit similar to the old interface), or as a set of four scrolling requestors, one each for Loaders. Savers, Operators and User Commands. It may be confusing at first, especially to long-time ADPro users, hut the new interface leads to greater productivity.
The screen can easily be set up to be optimised for tasks you perform most often.
It has also given ASDC. A chance to update some of the operator modules. For example, when scaling it is now possible lo lock the aspect ratio, so that when you change the si e of the image you can be sure that it won't he distorted.
I he Text Visual operator has been updated slightly. The maximum point size for text is now 102-1 and the characters can he given their own X and Y scaling factors to make the system more flexible. This Operator is still fussy about which fonts it will use. Though.
COMPOSITING: NOW YOU CAN REALLY SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING One of the most powerful features of ADPro has always been its ability to mix two images together, using alpha channels, a transparent colour or just a straight mix.
This process has been made a lot more powerful by the recent update.
For a start, the compositing preview now appears in a high resolution screen, so you can really see what you are doing.
Also, instead of having to drag the source box around the window with the mouse, it can now be nudged in steps by a few keyboard commands.
Secondly, the compositing feature can now deal with transparent ranges of colour. The old ADPro had to be told the exact colour value that was to be made transparent by using three sliders for Red, Green and Blue each of which had a range of 0 to 255). This was often difficult to determine. Also, when using images rendered against backdrops, there may be a range of colours that you would like to be considered transparent. That is exactly what is now possible with ADPro2.S. The alpha channel support (a greyscale image which determines the mixing ratios of two images to be combined) has been
extended to include embedded alpha channel support.
* ft ft ft ft OPERATORS ADPro has an extensive range of effects
which can be performed on the image. Some of them are unique
amongst Amiga software, some of them are unique anywhere. The
adaptability of this software is such that when morphing became
a popular graphics technique, a morphing module was released
that worked from within the ADPro environment. The images here
show just some of the effects possible.
IMAGE PROCESSING SOFTWARE Image processing software ASDG Meridian 081-543 3500 £199.95 Out now Many areas of the software have been optimised for greater speed.
HAM8 displays are still a bit slow.
Extensively re-written to cover all the new features, although it's a bit skimpy in places.
The Oilpaint operator creates a The bottom right corner of this image You can map everything on to a particularly pleasing effect. Has been warped. Sphere if it takes your fancy.
SimPrint gives you an idea of what A Polar Mosaic sounds like a nice Antique gives images a sepia, everything looks like on a dot matrix. Thing - if you can think of a use for it. Daguerro-type look.
One of the major features of :WI‘w is that everything can be driven front Arexx scripts. This program has by far the greatest level of Arexx control of any software for the Amiga. User scripts are now better integrated into the software, with a special window for calling your own scripts.
Isfuc. In a Another great amendment is better memory handling. The original ADPro used to grab all the Fast RAM on the system bar about 200k. This meant if you wanted to multitask with other software, it would have to be run first.
SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS In order to use this version of ADPro. You will need to have at least 4Mb of Fast RAM and Kickstart Workbench 2.04 or better.
You will also need a hard disk, as the program will only install to a hard drive.
I would strongly recommend that you have at least 8Mb of RAM and an accelerator if you plan to use many of the Operators on a regular basis.
WHO USES ADPRO?
In its most basic role, ADPro is a very useful file conversion utility, which can handle a number of file formats used on the Amiga and other computers, such as the TIFF format used widely on the PC and the PCX and PICT formats which are used on the Macintosh.
However, this is a small fraction of the power of ADPro.
It is a complete image manipulation tool. It can handle tasks such as palette reduction, scaling, rotation and a wide range of special effects. It is also possible to automate processes using Arexx scripts.
The answer, then, is that anyone who deals with a lot of images, for DTP, video or multimedia work, will use ADPro.
There is now a tool type which can be set to indicate the maximum amount of memory that ADPro should reserve.
Providing there is enough memory, you ran also save your image to a temporary RAM buffer, which saves you a lot of fiddling about when it comes to those tricky compositions.
The only real competitor to this new version of ADPro is GVP's Imagel'X, but the two programs have a rather different approach to their task. ImageFX was designed for a similar purpose, but uses a rather more visual approach. ImageFX also allows many operations to be performed direct to the image, in a paint package- stvle of interface.
We will bring you a comprehensive comparison of both these packages when the updated version of ImageFX is released in a few months time. If ACCESSIBILITY • • • • • For new users, this is probably easier to use than the original. There are plenty of tutorial examples.
More operators than you could shake a disk at, although some are a little troublesome to use.
This is the same price as the old version, and it's not much to pay for the power you get.
VERDICT “ This represents a quite outstanding achievement. ADPro has changed beyond measure, and it is a change very much for the better. A high- quality and good-value upgrade. 99 92% 4mi-back ftRp es9.95 There is no back-up program that can even come close to offering the features, ease-of-use and reliability of Ami-Back.

Pc.iP°"S The rather class variable magnify option makes picking out individuals a lot easier. Who on earth is this?
PERSOV UJ4L PAINT 4 John Kennedy looks at the colour of your money and finds a paint program to match.
Animation, and secondly, it doesn't believe in HAM mode. It will load RAMS and 24- bit images, but only on the condition that it is allowed to convert them to 256 colours before displaying them.
The advantage of this rather severe limitation is simple: 256 colour images are a lot easier and therefore much quicker to process and move around, and that's what Ppaint is good at.
To rub it in, Ppaint even has a set of image-processing functions built-in. And as ALMOST ALL AMIGA owners have a copy of Deluxe Paint because Commodore have included it in just about every software bundle they have released.
And a great idea it was too. Because nothing shows off the Amiga's graphics better than a good paint program.
With the advent of AGA graphics there came a rush of upgrades, and even one or two brand-new programs. Up to 256 colours on-screen in 'normal' graphics modes and over 262,000 colours in the special HAMS mode meant that at last a standard Amiga could display pictures of near photographic quality.
Not only do you have to think of a cunning name when saving, but you must also choose from a range of file protocols.
Deluxe Paint magically sprouted AGA support, and Brillianre burst on to the scene to tumultuous cries of The king is dead, long live the king". Meanwhile, a program called Personal Paint appeared hut no-one took much notice, which was a hit of a shame really.
The new Ppaint differs from the top two AGA programs in several respects.
Firstly, it won't touch anything to do with usual these arc useful for special effects.
File handling is also an area where Ppaint differs from the norm. Because it deals with images with a maximum of 256 colours, it has borrowed heavily from the PC world where, thanks lo VGA and SVGA graphic cards, these formats have been around for years.
As well as the Amiga standard IFF protocol. You can also load and save images in GIF and PCX formal. In fart, if you have a Workbench 3.0 Amiga, you can potentially load images in any format because Ppaint makes use of the new datatypes.
By taking the file format out of the programs themselves, and making them separate loaders and silvers. Commodore have made things a lot easier for programmers. A JPF.G loader datatype is supplied with Ppaint, which means any JPEG image can be loaded directly. The same goes for BMP files, and the Public Domain libraries are steadily increasing the number of datatypes available.
With version four of Ppaint. All the new features are under the surface, but are powerful nevertheless. The most interesting one is the support for external video cards such as the Picasso and Retina which operate a retargetablc graphics system.
Deluxe Paint would quite cheerfully fall over at this point, but Ppaint keeps on trucking because it o| eiis screens using a proper requester and knows when not to use the Blitter.
The input and conversion of 24-bit images is matched with Ppaint's ability to output them, either to a printer or some other PostScript-compatible device. All of the features normally associated with desktop publishing programs are present, including under colour removal and gamma correction.
If your printer is an IIP DeskJet 550G you're in luck because Ppaint comes with a special primer driver to get the most from this excellent piece of hardware.
The rest of Ppaint 4 remains the same as earlier versions. It's basically a clone of Deluxe Paint, with all the standard drawing and brush manipulation features. Some things are slightly better (such as the spline curve tool) and some things are slighdy worse (such as the palette and range requester).
If you made a list of Ppaint’s features you would notice that two are missing: animation and HAM support. Their absence is a rather interesting design decision, and it is clear that if they had been included Ppaint would be an entirely different program. But not necessarily a better one.
In its present form Ppaint is a curious mixture of Deluxe Paint and the PixMate image processing program. The use of register-only colours (no HAM), colour reduction options, pixel counting and screen grabbing lead me to believe that this is a package aimed at capturing the niche market of .Amiga programmers. The ability to output images in C source code format is the real giveaway, but what was the reasoning behind the decision not to The ability to reduce the number of different colours used in an image is a typical PixMate feature. PixPro was the standard image utility used by Amiga
programmers in pre-AGA days.

Deluxe Paint AGA will easily grind Ppaint into the dust in any comparison chart.
However, with its PC-image format support and use of Workbench 3.0 datatypes, which is at present, unique.
Ppaint is a lot more serious.
In fact for Assembler, C, AMOS or lllitz programmers, I think Ppaint version 4 could well become the package of choice, not least because it is available at this very reasonable price.

LOADING TIMEZZZZZ Time taken to load and display a 24 bit picture.
Choosing the best 256 colours in which to display an image is difficult Think about it - you're supplied with an image containing colours from a possible palette of 16 million different shades. How can you possibly pick the best?
This is a programming problem which has brought forward all sorts of ingenious solutions involving everything from Octree data structures to bisecting 3D Colour cubes - In other words, lots and lots of programming terms and dodgy maths.
The important thing is that it can be done. Deluxe Paint does it. ImageFX does it AdPro does it - heck even I have written a program to do it. So tell me, why does Ppaint take so flipping long to do it?
I loaded the same 256 by 320 24-bit image into several different programs. As you can see from the graph on the right on an A4000 030 Amiga Dpaint took about 22 seconds to make its choices whereas Ppaint took more than six minutes. Simply put this is far too long and puts a great stress on Ppaints abilities to handle large files. In fact the quickest way to get a 24-bit or loading and displaying 24-bit graphics. In fact it takes six minutes to do what Dpaint can achieve in 20 seconds.
HAMS picture into Ppaint is to load it into another program, display it there, and then use Ppaints screen grabbing facilities.
* * Personal Paint is an ideal graphics package for programmers
and more serious user. It combines the best bits from Deluxe
Paint and PixMate, but removes animation and HAM support. **

£649.99 3D ANIMATION PACKAGE - RAVE deciding which of their internal organs they could manage best without.
With price and expectancy so high, can specific software combinations ever live up to it? Well, quite frankly, yes!
But let's get one thing straight right away, the Lightwave Lighlrave combination is not perfect, I haven’t actually found anything wrong with it yet, but nothing can be absolutely perfect, can it? Let's see.
Firstly, the installation. Now. 1 think I’ve been somewhat fortunate in that I already had Lightwave on my system, so the memories of installing those 45 disks is dulled by time and now only causes the occasional involuntary twitch.
The installation process is long and laborious, but if you are not actually expecting the software to run on a Toaster card, it is greatly simplified. For instance, alter having installed your 110Mb of software, you can then go back and delete 95 per cent of it leaving yourself with a 3D drawer plus your relevant (FP or non-FP) versions of Lightwave and Modeller.
After that, just insert the dongle, drop the software into your Toaster drawer and click on your shiny new Lightrave iron.
It duly presents you with the Lightrave control screen, which is nothing much more than a choice of display devices. |ust click on your chosen display style (anything from a non-AGA Amiga right up to a Firecracker board) and then hit Filter.
You are now presented with a fairly simple-looking display: the Lightwave Layout screen. The first thing that will probably you notice about Layout is the Layout is easy to use and has the sort of response time that you might dream about. If you dream about those kind of things.
Rendering preferences in Lightrave are controlled via the Camera requester. The analogy with film making is carried as far as selecting the type of film to use.
IT IS SEVERAL years since word started to drift across The Pond about a revolutionary Amiga peripheral - the now legendary Video Toaster.
Legendary in the States anyway because, at the last count, one in every 10 Amiga users is now what's known as a Toaster Guy (I don't actually know if there is such a thing as a Toaster Gal. But there should be).
Considering the less than stupendous performance of the Amiga Stateside, coupled with the Toaster's large user base. 1 don't think it would be sacrilegious to suggest that just perhaps a non-Commodore product has been keeping the Amiga afloat in the New World.
The reason for the success of the Toaster is simple: its vision-mixing capabilities are second to none for the price. This, coupled with the huge amount of regional broadcast and cable TV companies in the States, pretty much guaranteed its success.
One major point has not been mentioned. However. Since its release in 1987, the Toaster has been bundled with a steadily evolving piece of software that has now reached a level of excellence which makes it worthwhile shelling out for the whole Toaster card just to get it. This is, of course, the Toaster-specific 3D animation package, lightwave. Toaster-specific, that is. Until now.
Towards the end of last year advertisements stated appearing in the Amiga press in the States for a Toaster emulator known as Lightrave. This is a little software patch and dongle that slips into your system and convinces Lightwave that you have two grands' worth of Toaster card installed.
It was originally developed to save on costs for Toaster-based render-farms (a network of Antigas hooked together to enable fast rendering) because your secondary machines now no longer needed to have the whole Toaster installed.
This is not all it does. Lightwave, now heed from its dependency on the purely NTSC (American TV system) output, can be run on - pause for thought, fanfare and angel chorus - a PAL or NTSC Amiga.
Now, before you all start scrabbling to pull out your wallets, it is the most expensive piece of software available for the Amiga. With the Lightwave Lighlrave combination coming in at £799, it is going to be pretty much out of reach of regular users, although I'm sure die-hard 3D enthusiasts all over the country will be British Amiga users have long envied their cousins across The Pond. The main reason for this jealousy was Lightwave 3D.
Now this piece of software has gone transatlantic.
John Allardice gets excited... 3D ANIMATION PACKAGE APRIL 1 994 LIGHTRAVE response time... zero. Just move your mouse over the main screen, hold down the left button and Voila! You are Hying, twisting, rotating above, below or through the Stage Grid, and what you can do for your view you can do for anything, objects, cameras, lights, whatever.
As far as objects are concerned, a quick glance thought the File Requester reveals a bewildering collection of readymade objects - some 170 in total - ranging from butterflies to Boeing 747s, park benches and an exact replica of a star field as viewed from the Earth.
To animate any of these myriad objects simply load it into your Stage Editor, make sure the Object button is highlighted in the Edit section on the left and hit Enter.
This, its a little note informs you, has just created a keyframe. Then simply scroll on to a later frame with the bar along the bottom, reposition your object and hit Enter again.
As you scroll back down to your first frame you will see that all the tweening (the calculation of object positions between keyframes) has already been done, and in realtime. That's it, you’ve set up an animation - from entering the programme for the first time it takes around five minutes. Now, to really convince yourself that you’re brilliant go down to the Preview button, select Make Preview and then Wireframe, sit back while it calculates for a minute, and when it presents you with a set of video recorder-stvle controls, hit Play.
Your wireframe animation now whizzes about of its own accord and you feel like a serious animator.
I have a soft spot for a couple of other animation systems on the Amiga. I mean you always like the one you first learned on, don’t you? But I haven't found a svs- tem, on this or any other platform, that can hold a candle to Lightwave.
Lightrave is so intuitive that you hardly ever have to use the manual, unless you are looking for a specific effect, in which case the 20(1 page tome really comes into its own, covering almost any combination of effects, cheats, whatever. It is definitely one of the best laid-oui. Easy-to- follow and thoroughly comprehensive documents I've seen for any program.
One aspect of Ugh wave that everyone ignores is Layouts companion program Modeller. In previous versions ol Lightwave, this was because it was best left ignored. I had even heard of people who modelled on Imagine and then transferred over with a program such as PixelPro or Interchange.
This is no longer the case.
With version three of Lightwave.
Modeller has undergone some 180 revisions and updates turning it from a very poor relation into a program of almost equal standing to Layout.
Its screen will seem very familiar to anyone used to Imagine's Detail Editor, but it operates on an entirely different wavelength. Modeller is based on the idea of layers a little reminiscent of Imagines concept of objects and groups, but, in this case, the layers are more like 'sub-objects' in that one completed object can be built up from many layers, each layer having its own set of attributes.
With this system you could, theoretically, give an object an unlimited number of surface attributes. Couple this with Layout's extensive mapping options and the detail possible with Lightwave is pretty much limitless.
The one thing that everyone remembers about Lightwave is the Lens Flares an interesting little subroutine that recreates the glows and streaks that we naturally see around a bright light source. It even emulates the elliptical rings we are familiar wilh from spotlights in films.
It is little touches like this that make Lightwave a definite choice for the professional market and pretty much the enthusiast's dream machine.
The only possible complaint that I could level up till now was Lightwave's inability to handle the PAL screen resolutions. This problem is now a thing of the past, because this Lightrave revision includes a small software patch to enable Lightwave to render to all of your favourite screen resolutions.
The Lightwave manual is huge, comprehensive and well written. Non 3D experts will be animating in hours.
ACCESSIBILITY ••••• Despite the huge size of the package, it really is incredibly simple to get to grips with.
FEATURES ••••• Everything you could want for 3D work. This is the package that created Babylon 5 after all!
VALUE • • • • It's difficult to say that anything is worth eight hundred quid. But if anything is. Lightwave is it.
“ Simply the most impressive piece of Amiga software ever to grace the screen.
The only reason this doesn't score lOO per cent is that we're sure that nothing can be perfect. Sell your granny for this one."
Loading, modelling and setting up scenes are fast on any machine. But you'll need a fast Amiga to render.

era.itI A standard IFF animation is a series of complete
frames, but an FFA animation combines consecutive pairs of
images by interleaving them together. The result is an extra
smooth animation.
IF THERE IS ONE area in which the Amiga excels it is graphics and multi- media - it really is up there with the best of them.
Not only can we create some excellent images 011 our screens, but there is an almost bewildering array of methods for playing them back.
There is the standard anim format, which has two versions currently in use.
Several rendering packages have their own individual animation player - Real 31)'s Deltaplay being an excellent example - and almost every 24-bit display card has some bespoke animation format. Then there are the multimedia packages such as Scahi whic h will crush and display IFFs at a frighteningly fast rate.

3. 3. ware that manages to come up with something almost
entirely unheard of outside the 24-bit formats - an animation
system which allows a change pallet from one frame to the
next. Not only that, but it locks your playback to 25 dps,
which means that finally all you budding Imagine users out
there can work to the standard video playback speed.
The reason behind Clarissas locked speed is the very thing that makes it special, the SSA (Super Smooth Animation) format it uses, makes use of the standard broadcast method of transmitting pictures, basically it cheats.
What Clarissa does, essentially, is to take an interbased IFF picture (don't worry if your stuff isn't 'laced', Clarissa will do that for you) and chuck half of it away, every odd line, then on your next frame it does the same with every even line which effectively halves the amount of information it has to deal with. Following that, it quite easily, locks the playback of these individual half-pictures (or fields) to your display spread which, in PAL countries, is a standard 50Hz. Clarissa really does deserve the name SSA.
Those mho are good with memories might remember this SSA format appearing before - several veal's ago we reviewed ProDAD's video effects software Adoragr which used SSA as its own proprietary playback formal.
Clarissa is more than just an animation player, however. It has some of the most comprehensive animation editing facilities I've ever seen. On opening the package you are bound to be somewhat daunted by the bewildering display of control panels and menus that flash up before you. But after just a short while playing with them you quickly adjust to the layout.
Basically, Clarissa allows you to load in four separate animation sequences into its source buffers (A-D) where you can muck about with timings, pallet adjustments, fades, and other features. Then you can load whatever you do, or don't want, down to the motor buffer for playback, cutting back and forth between the sources as you please.
If you're wondering how these four sources will fit into your memory - don't.
Clarissa has a virtual memory system which basically enables you to edit anything that can fit on to your hard drive. If only it used that for playback - well we can dream, can't we? That being said, the SSA format doesn't seem incredibly memory-intensive.
However, I'm probably not the best person to talk to regarding memory use - I've got 18 lb of RAM installed on my machine.
As far as inputting images is concerned, it's laughably easy. Clarissa will accept single frames, scenes of IFFs. ANIM 5 files.
Digitised Lab sequences, AdPro sequences, in fact, almost any type of image you can think of. All of it can then be cut, crunched and pushed out at video speed. This program is definitely a recommended addition to any animator's software. © “ Unless you're running an animation through a 24-bit card, this is as smooth as you are going to get.
If you work with animations, particularly with 3D ones.

All trademarks acknowledged DOT MATRIX PRINTER APRIL 1 994 PRINTER GIVEN THE NUMBER of calls we gel aboul printers, it's fairly obvious that there is still a great
amount of confusion over their installation and use.
Unfortunately, the manuals supplied by Commodore don't help, and most printer manufacturer manuals don't even mention Amigas. So. Is there any hope for the computer-user who doesn't want to print from an inferior machine?
Citizen's latest offering for the low-end of the printer market tackles this problem in an unusual way. And its biggest selling point is the approach to installing and setting up the printer. Instead of a complex and unreadable manual, details about how to set up the printer are covered in a setup program which comes on disk.
The disk also contains a program to control aspects such as the font and print density, and a cut-down version of the print enhancement program TurboPrint, which improves the quality of the output by allowing you to alter the dither pattern, gamma and colour correction.
The software stays in memory and replaces the Workbench driver, which The printer itself does not look partic- ularlv impressive. There are only two buttons on the front, and at the rear there is a single sheet feeder which can hold up to 50 sheets of A4. Although you can also use continuous computer paper.
The print quality is not outstanding, hut you can get good results with some judicious fiddling with TurboPrint. I can't really give any concrete guidelines on this, because the changes you need to make depend on what you arc printing. Beware that printing involves a high-pitched whining noise, even with the cover closed.
This printer is not suitable for printing a lot of text and it doesn't give high print quality. But. If you are looking lot an easv- to-use printer you can't go far wrong with it. The ABC printer hasn't shaken unbelief that the days of dot matrix printing are numbered, but it is a good, cheap printer for the beginner.
Means that software printing through this will have no problem with this program.
This approach makes installing the printer a dream, even for somebody who has never done anything like it before.
Instead of hating to dig through a tiresome manual to find which Oil’ sellings to change, the software presents you with a digitised image of the printer on-screen, showing where all of the various bits are, and what you should plug in where.
Because the manual is on-line you maybe tempted to plug the printer into the Amiga while it is switched on. Don't. As with all other printers you must never plug in or remove cables front any of the pons without first switching off your system.

* * Although the print quality is not brilliant, this is still a
good choice for the beginner or inexperienced user.
The on-line manual and start-up instructions are big points in the ABC printer's favour. ** SPEED ••• It's certainly not going to win any prizes for speed, but it's no slouch.
Average and acceptable.
Thanks to the on-line manual, the process of installing and starting the printer is extremely simple.
The printed offering is pretty thin, but the on-line manual is excellent and covers all aspects of the printer.
It's certainly aimed at the lower end of the market and the price compares well with similar models.
A rather basic 9-pin printer with no bells or whistles, although the print quality is perfectly acceptable.

Toshiba 4101 An internal CD-ROM drive for your Amiga? Well,
why not?
Nick veitch spins the discs.
Toshiba AROUND A DECADE ago ihe actor John Cleese appeared on TV and told everyone that Philips had managed to squeeze an hour of music on to a silver beermat. In fact, Philips had done more than that, they had started a second information revolution.
I remember when men were men and computers were computers. Now it's floppy this and CD that. You could do much worse than invest in the Toshiba 4101 CD-ROM. Above.
A few nights ago I watched a film on CD, and the other week I had my holiday snaps processed on to the same medium.
Music, pictures, films, games, it all happens 011 CD now, and if you don't happen to have a drive, you’ll be left behind.
First Computer are now supplying a
5. 25-inch internal CD-ROM and to use it the first thing you will
need is a SCSI interface. A proper one. If you own an A2000
or A3000 you are laughing, because these come with built-in
interfaces that work with this drive. If you don't, you may
have a little difficulty.
We found that the Oktagon controller and the Trifecta do not seem to be able to handle the full SCSI command set necessary to implement the CD drive. However, the A4091 (reviewed in this issue on page
136) has no problems - which is odd as it seemed to have
difficulties with everything else. First Computer Centre
assure us that the drive works with GVP controllers, which
means that quite a large number of people should be able to
hook up without any problems.
The mechanism itself will just about fit into the bay of an A1500, A2000 or A4000.
It is rather a tight fit, though. The A3000 doesn't have a 5.25-inch bay, which is a bit unfortunate.
The connecting cable comes out of the rear of the mechanism which means that it tends to push against the shielding around the power supply unit. This can present problems if your IDC connector (the socket on the end of the ribbon cable used to connect devices to the SCSI controller) is of the large variety. Also, you will need a fairly long cable to connect the drive in the first plate. The power supply can easily be drawn from one of the spare floppy power connectors.
In use the drive is fine, hut when ejecting discs, the drawer only protrudes under its own power for about an inch - you have to drag it fully open by hand. This isn't a problem, and at least you don't have to fiddle around with those nasty caddy things.
The drive is supplied with a host of utilities and a very friendly install program, " Music, picture, films games, it all happens on CD now and, if you don't have a drive, you’ll be left behind.** which is jolly lucky because it is a bit of a pig to set up new devices on the .Amiga. A CD handler is also included and the correct mountlist entry or automounting file is created (depending on your version of Workbench).
The utilities themselves are PD programs which enable you to play audio Cds on the drive, either through the headphone socket (at the front of the drive) or via the Amiga. Playing through the Amiga requires the computer to re-sample the studio, but you would be surprised at just how well even a relatively slow Amiga can handle this.
Below is a PhotoCD image which was read from the drive and converted to an IFF using a PD utility.
Still, on the audio side of things there is another utility provided which can rip samples directly off the disc - jolly useful, but remember to ask the copyright owner’s permission before using the sample in any distributed work.
Owning a CD-ROM drive is the key to a new world of productivity. It's also a good way to impress your mates. You could do worse than swap your money for this lovely device. - First Computer Centre 0532 319444 PRICE £217.38 Out now Adequate documentation is supplied on the disc, but there is no manual explaining the hardware connections.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • Could be a little tricky if you are unsure of SCSI. Find out the device name and unit number of the drive.
A great collection of PO utilities are provided. The drive itself is stylish and relatively compact.
You can get an external Mac drive for around £180, but it doesn't come with all the nice utilities.

50-frame flythrough animation generated with the aid of a script.
To claw back 2.5Mb of memory something had to be removed from this new version of Vista Pro. So what is not in the Lite software?
For a start there is no support for any Arexx scripts. This isn't really a major loss, as it is still possible to create animations from Vista's own scripting feature.
The losses which affect the resultant images the most are the lack of 24-bit support the loss of the fractal grass feature and the lack of support for user-defined backdrops. It is also no longer possible to save out images as TurboSilver objects, so users of Imagine won't be able to load generated landscapes in for a bit of re-rendering. Bah.
Landscape rendering software Virtual Reality Labs DISTRIBUTOR Meridian 081-543 3500 VISTA PRO LITE PRICE £39 Worried about lack of memory. Join Nick Veitch and take the low fat option.
IF YOU WERE lucky enough to get Amiga Format in April 1992 then you will be the lucky owner of the Vista software. This was all right in its own little way, but it was followed by a much more exciting and powerful program, Vista Pm. Bigger, better and more powerful in every way, Vista Pro unfortunately also required much more memory. Most Amiga owners don't have 4Mb of memory to throw about, so the kind people at Virtual Labs have come up with a new, energy-saving version.
Now all you need to be able to enjoy sculpting your own terrain is approxi- mately l.5Mb of RAM. Which, cunningly enough, means that this version will work Fine on a bog standard A1200. Hurrah!
But what does it do? Vista Pro Lite generates isometric projections (a 3D image displayed in two dimensions) of landscapes. Either from geological data or from a random seed number. The images can be customised by adding trees, lakes, rivers, snow, clouds in the background, stars and simulated heat haze.
Once the landscape is loaded (or generated if you use the fractal seed) you can position the camera and the target point on an overhead map. The height of the camera and the target can be entered using the co-ordinates in the panel on the right.
Vista Pro Lite supports all Amiga colour displays, from lb-colour up to and including HAMS, and you can render in image sizes from lo-res (320 x 256 pixels) up to hires interlaced (640 x 5I2 pixels) modes.
Although the original was very much a program for people who liked typing in lots of numbers. Vista Lite includes a set of four presets for image quality, which saves fiddling about with Polygon Size and all that nonsense. You can still fiddle with all that if you so desire though. On the whole, most of the interesting features are as they were; the cuts haven't been too drastic. 'Tj RELEASE Out now SPEED •••• Pretty fast but you really need an accelerated machine unless you are very patient.
It's not overly helpful, but it does a good job of explaining what each button is there for.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • It's still quite confusing. The learning curve for finding your way around is a slow and winding one.
Most of the features that are lost from the full version aren't that important to most users.
At just a tad over the price of one of those nasty game things, this has to be a bargain.
VERDICT
* * A feat of software engineering, now you can use Vista Pro ALL
ABOUT DEMS without breaking the bank on extra RAM.
Most of the features that are missing weren't that important anyway - unless you have a 24-bit card. ” A DEM is a Digital Elevation Model in co-ordinate form. The data is in the form of three dimensional co-ordinates which the Vista software can then render into a three-dimensional image.
The authors didn't enter all this data themselves, though. In fact it comes from the US Geological Survey, the American equivalent of the UK's Ordinance Survey organisation. This is good news for Vista owners, because these guys have done surveys of many interesting landscapes, including parts of Mars.
Unfortunately there are no examples of interesting UK locations - Glastonbury Tor, Snowden, Ben Nevis, Cave Hill - you will have to enter your own data for these I'm afraid.
APRIL 1 994 1 A-BIT SAMPLER The Studio 16 hardware comes in two flavours: the AD516 and the AD1012. Both of these are Zorro 2 cards which fit any big box Amiga. The AD1012 is a 12-bit mono sampler, so the quality of its samples is not as good as those of the 16-bit AD516, and it can only play back four tracks at once if your hard disk is fast enough to cope.
However, it costs less than half the price of the AD516. So if the CD-like quality of 16-bit is not essential, the AD 1012 is well worth considering.
The AD516 can handle up to eight tracks at one time, although you will need a pretty fast hard disk and Amiga to cope with this. The sampling is carried out by two 16-bit digital-to-analogue converters, and is 64 times oversampling, with a distortion of less than .0095 per cent and a Studio 16 Version 3 is available as the 12-bit AD1012, or the 16-bit AD516, shown here, which can handle up to eight tracks at any one time.
Frequency range of 15kHz to 22kHz. What this technical gobbledygook boils down to is that the quality of the samples is quite simply stunning, with absolutely no noticeable distortion.
Both cards are based around a ADSP 2105 Digital Signal Processor (DSP) which deals with the potentially messy business of mixing the signals.
The software is modular, so you can load the various parts such as the recorder, mixer and CueList separately. Each of these controls a specific aspect of the program, but most of the everyday bits can be handled from within three of the modules: the Recorder. Editor and CueList.
RATING YOUR RESOURCES The number of tracks and the sample rate you will be able to use with Studio 16 depends on the speed of your hard disk and the speed of your Amiga.
Studio 16 can play back several different tracks simultaneously, but the number of tracks will also depend upon the speed of your hard disk, and particularly the seek time. The seek time reflects how long the head of the drive takes to move between the tracks of the drive, and so how long it will take to find a file. If you are playing several tracks simultaneously, the drive will need to be constantly moving between the files holding the data STUDIO 16 V3 Upgraded software and a powerful new CueList feature are the highlights of the most recent version of the Studio 16 sampler.
Richard Baguley gets tuned in and turned on.
You can sample ai rates of between 5.5 and 48kHz, which covers Compact Disc
(44. 1kHz) and Digital Audio Tape (48kHz). Having used the
Recorder to get the sounds into the system you can edit it
in the Editor. From here you can chop or change the sample
to remove errors or combine samples (although they do need
to be at the same sample rate).
The real heart of the software is the CueList. Here you define what samples are played and when, so this is where you are likely to spend most of your time. For example, if you are editing a piece of film to add the sound effects, you would sample in the voice track and place this on to two of the tracks (to give a stereo pair).
You could then drop the sound effects samples on to the other tracks in sync with the voice track. Studio 16 can synchronise to a video by using SMPTE time code.
THE NEXT TIME you go to the cinema or watch a video, stop for a moment and think about the soundtrack.
Not the turgid Bryan Adams record that plays over the credits, but the various bangs, crashes and groans which create die atmosphere that makes a good film.
Usually sound effects are dubbed in later in the post-production process which, these days, is invariably done using digital rather than analogue sound to cut out the hisses and crackles.
Studio 16 is designed for just such a purpose. It has already seen a lot of use in video, radio and multimedia production, and it's widely regarded as one of the best products for these purposes. Instead of storing the sample in memory (as most Amiga samplers do) Studio 16 records the sample direct to hard disk.
For each of the tracks. If you have a slow drive, it will simply not be able to keep up. There are no hard and fast rules to this, but if you are considering using Studio 16 in a professional environment you you should consider buying a large, fast drive on which to store the samples.
The speed of your Amiga will also have an influence, because playing back 16-bit samples involves moving a lot of data around. As a rough guideline, you will probably only be able to play back five tracks with a 68000-based Amiga (such as the A2000). But a 68030- based model (such as the A4000 030) should be able to handle eight tracks easily.
Which is a signal encoded on to ihe video tape. This tells Studio 16 which frame you are on. So that the video and sound can be kept in perfect sync, even if you skip backwards and forwards.
The CueList is extremely powerful but still very easy to use. To put in a sample, you just drag it from the list of samples on disk and drop it on to the appropriate track. If you want to move it to another time it's simple. Just click and drag to where you want it. If you’re working from an edit list, you can specify the start and end times of the sample in SMPTE frames.
Once you’ve finished vour soundtrack you can record it on to video or even resample it to disk for use on a CD. The Digital Signal Processor is capable of playing back several tracks and sampling the output at the same time, so you can combine your three or more tracks to become two (for stereo) or one, with no hassle.
However, there is one omission that would have been extremely useful - direct support for creating CD tracks. At the moment you have to rely on an external program to convert the samples into a CD track, which is a pity.
Studio 16 is a difficult product to assess.
It's certainly a very high quality lfi-bil sampler and a lot more, and the new version of the software is very easy to use. In particular the new graphically-based CueList.
However, it is not cheap and the imminent MiMtWltf_ m-mu nun UjUm U, lUliliLki

a mistake.
A PROFESSIONAL VIEW Jim Hawkins is a professional multimedia producer who makes his living writing TV and movie screenplays. He's responsible for Music Maker and Astertx on the CDTV, and is currently working on a CDD version of Asterix. Here Jim offers his opinion of the latest version of Studio 16.
STUDIO 16 "There's only one minus point about version 3 Studio 16 software, and that's the loss of the real-time DSP effects module, which is guaranteed to get your friends gasping as ft does weird things to your audio.
"The major plus of the new software is the enhanced performance. The Editor creates waveform graphs from large files more quickly, and that's a big bonus. The seek time to selected sections of big files is also much less painful. It's also good to see that the use of intelligent modules that load on to a work space has been retained: the temptation might have been to make one vast program.
"As the hardware hasn't changed, there's no enhancement of the actual audio quality, but then it's hard to see how it could be any better than it is at the moment - perfect capture at sample rates up to 48000 16-bit sample sec, and perfect replay.
"There is improved support for Bars & Pipes, full MIDI and Arexx support and full use of the hardware SMPTE timecode generator. No surprises really - just a continual upgrading of the system software, better performance, and improved reliability.
The included BigBlocks utility to increase the logical sector size on hard disks may prove a life-saver to those with slower SCSI or IDE drives. It didn't do much for my 440Mb Wren external SCSI drive - the speed increase was 4325 bytes sec.
"One major overhaul is the CueList editor, which is altogether a fantastic tool for getting recordings just right. For people creating multimedia or videos, it makes fully professional mixing and dubbing possible on the desktop."
Release of the RTX module for the Wnvetook sampler means that it will finally have some serious competition.
Studio 16 is extremely useful for video, multimedia and CD production., but it is by no means a cheap option, because you will also probably need to expand your system to get the full use out of it.
However, Studio 16 is still cheaper than comparable dedicated systems, for example the Soundsrupe which retails at around £2,500. And, all-in-all Studio 16 should have pride of place on many a multimedia professional's desktop.

CUEING THE ACTION VERDICT The only completely new feature in the software is the CueUst This incredibly powerful part of the program allows you to control the sequence in which the various samples are played back.
Here we take a quick look at what the various buttons do...
1. These are the playback and recording controls.
From here you can play any or all of the tracks or record a track while playing back the others.
2. These controls determine how samples will work with each
other.
You can have an unlimited cross fade, a limited cross fade or a butt edit, where one sample stops and the other starts immediately.
3. These samples will fade from one to the other in a time deter
mined by the space between them.
0. Each of these is one track, which can be named. If you have
got an accelerated Amiga and a fast hard disk, you can have up
to eight tracks.
5. The blocks represent one sample, which is played back at the
appropriate point in the CueList.
6. These four samples are butted together, so they will play one
after the other with no pause between them.
* * The sample quality is excellent, and the new version of the
software is much easier to use than the previous release.

Mam JUNIOR ESSENTIALS IS a collection of six arcade-style games that aims to reinforce an ambitious range of subject areas. Maths, History, Geography, Science, English and French are all covered al a broad level aimed at five to 11-year-olds.
Players test their reactions, solve puzzles and develop strategies in the games, but ultimate success rests on correctly answering questions.
The results are recorded and displayed on a colour-coded Achievement Record, with reference to the National Curriculum, and on a High Scores Table for players. There is a certificate, which can be tilled in and

it.
Each game can be played at six levels, and offers features to increase the potential for challenge.
For an expert player, customising the games to test the reaction time provides good practice and consolidates knowledge and skills.
However, the games suffer from looking like educational programs and the graphics don’t compete with entertainment software and offer nothing new in terms of gameplay.

There are six arcade-style games, each with six levels of complexity and features for adjusting the challenge. In this package the Achievement Record does not have links with the National Curriculum, but displays players' results with reference to dinosaur-specific facts, such as diet and dimensions.
The many tasks include matching pictures of dinosaurs 10 their names, identifying dinosaurs from descriptions of their behaviour, size, or physical features: and answering general dinosaur-related questions.
To succeed, players will need much specialised knowledge while an understanding of the formation of scientific words combined with inspired guesswork wouldn't go amiss, either. An eight-page booklet.

Dino Info, contains the names of the 96 beasties mentioned in the games, and other facts, but is woefully inadequate in terms of the information needed to play the games. However, quite a lot can be picked up from trial and error because the games drop heavy hints or just correct you if you get it wrong.

DKB DISTRIBUTOR Power Computing 0234 273000 price ™ £3" 5 tsrt
Life in the fast lane? Nick veitch attempts to d6 it at SmiS a
secorfift ttttew olt S56 A SCSI CONTROLLER is a wonderful
thing. SCSI stands for Small Computer System Interface, which
is a fairly accurate description of what it does.
It is an interface standard which translates instructions and transfers data between the host computer and an external device. The external device can be anything that conforms to the SCSI standard. At the moment this includes hard drives, tapestreamers, CD-ROMs, and scanners.
However, it is mainly used for hard drives. SCSI mechanisms are the industry standard for machines such as the Apple Macintosh, the IBM PC. And compatibles and. Until the A4000, the top-end Amigas.
SCSI interfaces are necessarily complicated, because the protocol has to support such a wide range of devices.
SCSI 2 is an extension of this standard which supports more commands and also provides higher data transfer rates - up to five times that of an ordinary SCSI device.
These rates obviously depend equally on the device which is being driven. In fact, there is only a small improvement in speed when using a SCSI 2 device compared to the older SCSI ones.
The A2091 was the officially approved interface for the first Amiga, (the A2000) to have a SCSI interface It's successor, the A4091, is manufactured by the American firm DKB, but Commodore played a large part in the design of the card.
The card itself is a relatively complex multi-layer affair. DIP switches at the rear control options such as the SCSI address number of the card, whether to activate synchronous mode and whether the devices require a long or short boot-up.
Synchronous mode can result in much improved transfer rates, because each data packet transferred does not have to go through an acknowledgement handshake.
The A4091 does like the devices to be properly terminated. If your SCSI devices Commodore approved SCSI controller.
Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) technology produces an impressive feat of engineering. It's just a shame that the interface is so fussy.
Do not have built in termination (which most internal drives do not) a termination module is supplied which must be attached to the SCSI bus. This can be a bit of a pain if you have more than a few cards installed in your A4000. The terminator and the extra connector on the ribbon cable have to be jammed into the space.
The other major difficulty is that the A4091 seems to be a bit fussv about who it will talk to. Some mechanisms work fine, while others aren't recognised at all, or only every now and again. I lav ing said that, if you find a compatible mechanism, it seems to work well. The A4091 was able to cope with an internal CD-ROM drive.
* SCSI 2 supports more commands and also provides higher data
transfer rates - up to five times faster than an ordinary SCSI
device. * something that die Oklngon and Trifecta cards cannot
do.
The only other quibble is the external SCSI socket. It is a 50-way D-type connector, but it is a subminiature one and is incompatible with the majority of cables because the Mac, PC and, until now. The Amiga, all use the slightly larger type. It seems a bit pointless. © GOING FOR BUSTER The A4091 is a special Zorro 3 card, so it will only work on the Amiga 4000. Unfortunately, because of problems with the A4000 Zorro interface, the A4091 will only work with later revisions of the Buster chip.
The Buster chip (which is located slightly to the right of and a little behind the RAM sockets on the motherboard) must be a revision 11 or above. Most A4000s sold in the UK have an older revision of the chip (09). You can check yours by opening the lid and reading the last two digits on the chip. If you have a 09 you can get it replaced under warranty. It is worth checking now, because you will need it sooner or later.
SPEED •••• The A4091 board's speed problems lie, for the most part, with the A4000 rather than the board itself.
A useful installation guide, but an in-depth explanation of the different options would have been helpful.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • You should be able to use this board, even if you are not familiar with SCSI devices, and how they work.
A tij; i =*-1 Support for SCSI Fast Bus and an asynchronous mode are excellent.
Shame about the rear connector.
VALUE •« This is the sort of price you would expect for a reliable SCSI 2 interface, not one as moody as this.
VERDICT
* * Although the A4091 is an excellent piece of engineering, it
is sadly let down by some of the deficiencies of the A4000. It
also seems to suffer from having some incompatibility problems
with other mechanisms. 99 71% (G7G21 T?. V-r; (G7i7?.j 77772

Or at least that’s what Richard Baguley thinks as he digs through the latest pile of games and disks to descend on to his workstation from on high... THE LONGEST DAY PD GAMES & UTILITIES IV1R A COOKE History may be bunk, but it's important that we don't forget important events such as D-Day and the day I was born.
Anyway, this hyperbook educational program is designed to provide the basic facts about the background to the Allied attack on northern France on the June 6. 1944. This auspicious date was to be the beginning of the end for the .Axis Power's plans for world domination.
Although there are a variety of scanned images, most of the information is presented in the form of maps. There isn't a huge amount of detail in this presentation (which fits on to one disk), but on balance, it is well done, and could be a useful educational tool.
BON APPETIT, SCRIBBLE PD U233 Food is always an interesting subject, and new ideas for recipes are always welcome. You could go out and buy a new cookery book, or you could use Bon Appetit to give you inspiration. It's a simple database program specifically designed for holding recipes and the disk comes complete with a database of 21 serving suggestions.
The real strength of the program lies in the way you can access the recipes vou have entered.
VIEIi SeftKH KSIXIS Asterisk (•) indicates recipe is twed.
The recipes containing vegetarian as a search characteristic are: I* Hake-Ahead Lent II Chili Pie I 7] ?. Swash and Blue Cheese Tinbale I 14 1 lould you like !•:
I. Redisplay list
I. Print list to printer .. Return to Search Vieu Hern?
)r press the nunher to the left of the recipe to view it four choice?
Meating the need - Bon Appetit can search your database for recipes that don't involve dead animals.
Each entry can have a number of keywords associated with it, so you could code-name a recipe Vegetarian or Cabbage, lor example. You could then search through the database looking for that keyword. For instance, if you had a lot of aubergines, t on could search for every recipe which uses them.
Hiin Appetit is entirely text based and it's not the most friendly program I've ever seen, but it could be useful if you are looking for inspiration for a dinner party.
FIND IT CLR CLU 037 Take my word for it - having a hard disk is a double-edged sword, as it's very easy to lose a file in the several hundred directories that a typical disk contains. Unfortunately, the designers of AmigaDOS decided not to put in a Find utility, such as Mac users have been using for years.
Anyway, a certain Michael Sewell needed a utility to find files, so he wrote his own.
Find It is a pretty simple affair which enables vou to search an entire disk for ant file which fits miiuiiviorv»h GFX 17 BIT 2914 For those of you who have been exploring the wilds of the Gobi Desert for the last few years, or whose copy of Amiga Format has been eaten by the chihuahua every month since you started subscribing, morphing is a process of transforming (metamorphosing) one image into another. Some people consider it to be somewhat old hat but I think it's rather fun.
Minimorph is based on the PD morphing program I Morph but is about 50 times faster because Minimorph author Philippe Banwarth used Assembly language to write it I couldn't make a comparative speed test but a simple 10-frame morph was produced in a matter of seconds on an A3000. Which was significantly faster than Vmorph. This would obviously be slower on an unaccelerated machine, but still very fast You are limited to black and white lo-res images, and restricted by the contents of the within a certain pattern. You can search for a file with an exact name or you can use wildcards - to search
for a file which ends with .IFF. for example.
Once the search is complete, you are presented with a list of files which fulfil the criteria, and ton can read, view, hear or edit them simply by selecting one and pressing the appropriate button.
These buttons can be defined to use your own choice of viewing or editing program.
EASYCALC PLUS CYNOSTIC Spreadsheets have never been noted as the most exciting aspect of computing, hut there is no denying their usefulness. The facility to change one aspect of a complex set of figures (such as your spending habits) and to recalculate the entire set of figures from this (so you can reassess the si e of your overdraft) is undeniably useful.
Easy rah has been around on the I’D scene for some time, and is widely held to be one of the best spreadsheets you can get. Mam people regard it as palette. Several images came out with corrupted palettes - white replacing some of the greys. But apart from these minor bugs, Minimorph is an lacing as good as many commercial spreadsheets, although it lacks some functions, such as creating graphs or graphics from vottr figure’s. However, an extra program to do this will only cost vou till.
This is certainly an extreme!' Powerful program with a 'fix' well designed user interface. It's not vet up there with the commercial spreadsheets hut. Believe you me. It's not far off.
CALCULUS COMBAT MPC THE PYRAMID GAME FORTISS PD 671A&B There have been numerous theories about the origins of the pyramids, but personally I find the one that says there is a link with PD and the shoot-em-ups somewhat difficult to accept.
Anyway, in The Pyramid Came, Bernard The Spaceman has been captured by an evil mummy, and it's your task (if you choose to take up the challenge) to guide him through the mate of the pyramid to the exit.
As you'd expect, a variety of obstructive meanies are intent on blocking your path. The only way to progress to the next level is to avoid them and drop three diamonds on to the door.
Overall, The Pyramid Game is an enjoyable outing, although it's not without its faults. For example, the joystick control method takes a bit of getting used to.
I'm also not too sure that the collision detection is kilometres. Easth. Figures can easilv Ik’ converted between the various formats used in the film industrv. Such as SMPTE frames and 1.BT hence its usefulness for friends of the celluloid medium, Hnitlrirnlr can he downloaded from any of the Atninel sites on the Internet.

REIUDERCALC 17777 AIV1IIMET Everybody knows how useful ;i rulculnmr can be.
But lliis is die first I've seen which is designed lor animators and film makers.
rmlmvlr includes such useful functions as the ability to calculate how many frames an object will occupv if it is travelling at a certain speed over a lixed field ol view. Just what I needed for fiendish lime and motion equations ai school.
Which moves hack and forili in the most disorientating way. As if that were not enough, die hall has inertia and motion sickness. Ytngli.
Points are scored by billing the pins which appear randomh in die placing field. The winner is die first player to get to nine points, bill vour score is cleared if you lose die hall over the edge of die screen. You call play Sirkbtill in either one or two-plavcr mode.
It's not a had game, bill ii is pretu difficult and the random appearance and disappearance of die pins makes it more a question of luck than judgement If there were a series of patients for the pins (like on a pinball table, for example).

Many of the best PD programs are Shareware, but what does this mean, and how does it work for the authors? Richard Baguley investigates.

Write... Reply... R R Areas... Message List.. If you are
discovering the many delights Electronic Mail, you'd be well
advised to check out Spot, the excellent Shareware E-Mail
program from Nico Francois, which will cost you 1000 Belgian
Francs.
ONE OF THE best things aboui owning an Amiga is the large amount ol Public Domain and Shareware programs that are available for your machine. No matter how obscure or seemingly mundane the task you want to perform, it is a fairly safe bet that there will be a program somewhere in the voluminous archives of the many Public Domain libraries and Bulletin Boards which will fulfil your requirements.
Many I’D programs are completely free. The author has waived their copyright and the programs can be freely copied and distributed, but should not be sold for profit. When you buy these programs from a PD library, you are paving for the disk and covering administrative costs, but you are not paying for the program. Other PD software falls into the category of Shareware, which means that you are asked to make a contribution to the author ol the program by registering as a user.
.After till, it's only fair and reasonable dial the author should get some kind of reward for all the time and effort they have put into creating the program, and the asking price isn't usually much more than a tenner or so.
So, how many people register Shareware?
Steffen Gutmann. Author of the Shareware database program AmigaBase. Says that so far 103 people have registered as users of the program, and Andrew Woods, author of the Shareware spreadsheet EasycalcPlus (registration fee £15). Has received around 200 registrations. Meanwhile Nico Francois, author of the excellent F.-Mail program Spot, has had over 000 registrations.
"I'm very pleased with this response." Says Andrew Woods, "so much so that I'm starting work on EasyCalc 2. The UK has a reputation for being dishonest when it comes to registering Shareware, but I think this is unfounded."
So where have these registrations come from?
Most of Steffen Gulmann's registrations have come from his native Germany, while around 95 per cent of the Easycalc registrations have come from within the UK where Andrew Woods lives and works.
”1 think that the hassles of obtaining foreign currency put oil many people who would otherwise register," says Andrew. About 50 people in the UK have registered Spot, and Nico is very pleased with this response.
Many Shareware authors distribute a disabled version of their program, with the full version only being sent out to users after they have registered.
However, both Steffen and Andrew distributed full versions of AmigaBase and EasyCalc 2 with no disabled features.
"You can’t use all of the features of AmigaBase if you don't have the user manual." Says Steffen, although he is currently considering making future versions of the AmigaBase program disabled in some way.
Nico Francois decided to release a working, but slightly disabled version of his S ml program.
"If I hadn't crippled S iol I’m sure I would have had far fewer registrations." He said.
Andrew Woods disagrees: "I don’t believe in Crippleware as a means of distributing software."
He said. “I know that 1 would never register anything if it had been crippled and obviously my customers feel the same way. I think an annoving requester popping up every few minutes is a much better solution."
What's the future for Amiga Shareware?
"There is an awful lot of crap out there,” sal's the ever-diplomatic Andrew.
“Most Amiga Shareware is very cheap but also very poor. However in recent months the standard of Amiga Shareware has improved dramatically.
”1 think that the introduction of Workbench 2 and 3 hits been responsible for this. Writing good- looking user interfaces hits suddenly become a lot easier. I think that if you have a piece of quality software and sell it at it realistic price then people will register.” PUBLIC DOMAIN TERMS AND PHRASES PUBLIC DOMAIN SOFTWARE is sometimes also known as Freeware and can be copied and distributed by anybody, but many PD authors impose the condition that only a minimal sum, to cover administration, changes hands. It can work in two ways: either the author of the disk gives up the copyright or
alternatively he or she retains the copyright but allows anybody to copy the disk without having to seek permission.
SHAREWARE programs are similar to Public Domain in that they can be freely copied and distributed. However, if you make use of the program, you are asked to send some money to the author. In return, he or she will send you a version of the program with any limitations removed, a manual or a newer version of the program.
LICENCEWARE is somewhere between PD and commercial software in that you are not allowed to copy the program, but it will only cost you around a fiver. This is designed to ensure that some of the money from the program goes direct to the author.

Another demo. This one from the Scoopex team is called I’lui Q (is that rude?)
Lameness Took Me. How very, very odd. Strange business this because, at one point, the raw backing track comes to a halt and this chap appears with one very long buttock, resting on a forked stick (that bloke's a nutter). And his cap has got this really huge peak. Disturbing.
Lit another bit the screen iills with insects which are then squashed by a finger. Freud would have had a licld day. Apart from that, it's the usual fare of swirling dots and vectors but it's the man with the long buttock who gives this a fresh feel.
FLYING COWS PD-SOFT 3528 If the cow jumped over the moon, would it be as sick its a parrot? No matter, cows are in the air in this beefy demo, but spinning rather than Hying is the order of the day for our bovine chums. A polished Polish demo, Flying Cows includes a whole box of effects though none fertilise the imagination to any great extent Why the cows are airborne in the first place is somewhat of a mystery but let's press on regardless.
Backed by a thumping, demonic, track, various visuals Hash forth in a similar manner to main So, you've spent weeks, months or maybe even years slaving away over a music or graphics demo or perhaps a slideshow. Now what do you do with your masterpiece?
Send it to Stephen Bradley, that's what. It really makes his day.
An apt title for many of the demos that arrive in the AF office. Totally Insane is more than worthy of its moniker. Darth Vader-type bloke, BP petrol, toilet and Workbench - these are just some of the random visuals that make a guest appearance, as well as the odd Armageddon image. The demo starts impressively at the rear of a cinema, zooming down the centre isle before dissolving into the screen. Although Totally Insane is a mishmash of imagery, the music track is good, there is some decent ray-tracing and oddly enough, it's dedicated to British Petroleum in Sweden. Yes, totally insane
but take a look for yourself.
¦niSAJUE PD-SOFT 3470 Free your mind.' Exhorts this little rave numhei from Mirage Tk. How vou do so is open io question. The track is a really thumping 'whistles and This demo isn’t called Flying Cows for nothing. There’s ample evidence of their penchant for airborne activities.
Just to make the point that it isn’t from Finland.
Subliminal XTC opens with a map of the UK.
Dungarees' allair and combines nickering text (words sut It as psvrlio and scarper) with a varietv ol colour!Ill images. It's a looping affair so vou can put it on in vour bedroom at night and wake up to it the next dav if vou're reallv keen.
Subliminal XTCfs a lad repetitive, although the map ol Britain looks dandv and the sirens sound like the ones they used to test in Tadcasler on a regular basis Brilliant. W ell that bit is anvwav.
THE TREASURES OF TUTANKHAMUN An inlnrm.il. but inlni illative, journey down memory lane - well, roll'd need a long memory to rememlK-i 11000 rears ago. Various artefacts arc displayed along with explanatory texl such as a pair ol earrings which, il is suggested, appeared around die lime of Tut himself and were worn by boys who then discarded them upon leaching manhood. Bil like today reallv. The image quality Trek kies, and those whose interest in Star Trek is not quite as obsessional, will find this a thrill.
TELESCAN A two-disk collection of hand-drawn Star Trek AGA pictures, and ideal complement to the theme tunes, if you will. Created using Real-3D.
Is preuv good, although (lie text is a bit tough to read. It would have been nice to have had an explanation of what those pyramids are all about though. And the Sphinx. Funny-looking bloke that Tutankhainun.
STAR TREK THEMES YORVIK PD IV1LJ0192 Planets, space stations and ships. But no chippy or sports centre. What on earth's going on?
Author Gareth Collins has put together a reasonably good collection of 12 slides of spacecraft hurtling across the galaxy. A decent addition to any self-respecting Trekky's collection.
SUBTLE SHADES PD-SOFT 3510 “Hicr ist i-inen Deutsche demo." As they sat in (iermanv. Probablv. Subtle shades ol wh.ti, I reallv wouldn't dare to venture. Rat Ban Wayfarers, they're quite subtle shades. Anyway, it's not the most vibrant collection of images I've ever seen but those with a penchant for dotscapes. Vectors and plinky rave music may find it an agreeable addition to their collection. There is no linear pattern to the images, although one must be grateful for the non-appearance of an animated naked woman clutching a sword while lowering above a fearsome dragon. Devotees only.
The attention to collection. Creating this fellow's suede Jacket must have been a real labour of love.
And now for something completely different.
The Land of the Midnight Sun (that's Norway, that is. Now home of the famous East German shot-putter Lilly Hammer) provides the inspiration for this collection of fine drawings. Apart, that is, from the one of the Oriental bloke smoking a tab - that's the Rising Sun. And dramatic it is too, with a staring. H rather fuay soundtrack.
DEMOS!
There are lots of fair maidens, more castles than you couid imagine and a veritable host of panoramic mountain ranges as well as the obligatory woman with a mighty sword. It's all positively medieval, but pretty nice quality, despite that.
S ’*710: mums 5 W* tkh tk This is incredibly similar to the view that Captain Kirk has when perched on the bridge of the USS Enterprise.
Welcome to yet another Star ' Vrfrinspired demo, boldly going where no man has...etc. Sim Trek Themis is a double-disk package containing both the original and the Xext -eaeration series music.
The qualitv is good and you can choose to view the front-end. A blank screen or Hash through the stars at pace while Kirk and the other blokes nibble on about exploration.
This mean green beastie is just one of the many strange images from the Nuance team's Subtle Shades.

OPTIMISED RUBBISH I have recently bought an Amiga 1200 fitted with a 80 megabyte hard drive. After installing 50Mb of information on to a 74Mb partition. I tried to defragment optimise the information but it was all deleted. As you can imagine. I was not amused. Is it true that you cannot defragment an IDE hard drive? The warranty seal has been broken how do 1 stand wilh getting ICL to come out and repair my Amiga if I have a problem?
J Jewell. Plymouth. Devon You certainly can defragment an IDE drive. 1 have done so myself many limes. You neglected to say whal software you were using to optimise the disk, but I imagine ibis mav be where the problem lies.
If ii was an old program, and your disk was formatted using me of the new modes there mav have been a compatibility problem. Anyway, you should really have backed up all the information before you tried to optimise it.
If your warranty seal has been broken then ICE are under no obligation to lix your machine for free. If you installed the hard drive votirself then you reallv haven't got a leg to stand on.
I lowever. If a company installed it for you, then you may be able to claim a warranty from them - particularly if it is the hard drive itself which is causing the problem.
SERIAL KILLER I hope you. Or another reader, can help me wilh my problem concerning connecting my Amiga to a Psion Series 3a electronic organiser. I have connected my Series 3a to my A4000 030 using the Psion 3 link (serial version) cable. My problem stems from the fact that Psion only produce the accompanying software in PC and Macintosh formats. Although I can perform rudimentary file transfers using commands such as COPY AUX: TO (MY FILE), this is by no means ideal.
Can you tell me if there is any software for the Amiga like there is for the PC and Mac? (Psion UK didn’t know of any).
If there isn’t any such software what would vou recommend to ease my communication problems?
I would be eternally grateful for vour advice, and forever in your debt.
Mr Anonymous, Somewhere or Other Not being in possession of a Psion 3, I'm not able to lu-lp with the Psion side of things. However, at the Amiga end. I can tell you that if the Psion 3 uses a standard serial transfer, some comms software should help. You can get hold of PD programs such as JRComm or A'comm from any Continued overleaf w 880 llll A STATE I have an A500+ (with 2MB), Workbench V2I04 and a Slimline external disk drive. I use my A500+ mainly for making and copying pictures and titles with my video, or just for fun.
Just lately I have had five disks come up with DISK ERROR 880 and have lost a lot of my work, although I always try to keep my disks write-pro- tected. Not knowing much about computers, but after a lot of head scratching and searching through mags I have come up with: DISK ERROR 880 is a boot block error (checksum error).
1) If I am right how can this occur? One picture will load
correctly and the next will corrupt the disk although not
fully.
2) How does the error spread If it Is not a virus?
3) More important how can I stop the **»**»• thing.
PS About half the disks I use are new and the rest are reformatted magazine coverdisks.
Mr R Lark, Sutton, Surrey There are several possible causes for your disk error problem - which Is not a terribly serious one by the way. Firstly, the Disk Validator on your Workbench disk may be damaged or corrupted, either by a virus or just wear and tear on the disk.
You can easily solve this by copying a new version of It from your original Workbench disk to the L directory.
The second cause could be you. Are you sure that you are not ejecting disks from the drive before they have finished accessing7 This will usually result in checksum errors on the disk. Such problems are often solved by using a program such as DiskSalve (which appeared on the Subscribers* Superdisk with Issue 56) or another disk salvage utility. It Is unlikely that there will be significant damage to the files on your disk, except for the one you were accessing at the time.
The last possibility is that your drive may be faulty. Does this usually happen when you ere using one or other of your drives7 It would also be a good move to check for viruses too. Make sure you have an up-to-date Virsus checking utility, such as Virus Checker 6.34. This can be found in most PD libraries - see the ads near the PD pages.
To the point... QVWhen using Snapshot from the Window this is 14MHz. This does not mean that a 28MHz menu on Workbench, what is the difference 68000 processor is faster though. Cock speed between the Window and All options? Comparisons are only relevant when comparing similar processors.
A The Window option just does a snap of the window size and position on the screen. A What does the DataTypes drawer in However, selecting the All option will cause all of Workbench 3 do?

These can be Qwhat is the dock speed of the A1200 and used by programs, such as Multiview which is does it mean in terms of performance? Also included in Workbench, to interpret files of these types.

Secure. For a start, it will only activate when vour machine is booted front that disk, so people will still be able to boot from other disks. Also, the Startup-Sequence can be interrupted by pressing Control-D at anv time, so this method of security is easilv bypassed.
If you reallv want to protect your data, it is lx-t- ter to encode the data itself, rather than restrict access to the machine.
The installer mentioned in At56 is a generic utility which allows software developers to write a comprehensive and easily-executed script to install the software on disk. T he program itself does not install the software, it just makes it easier for people to write install scripts.
KEEPING rr SAFE Please could you tell me how to write a program to add to my Startup- Sequence that asks for a passcode. Also, how can you use your own pictures as backdrops in Workbench? Do you have to have Workbench 3? I have an A500+ with Workbench 2.
Another thing, you stated in A lob that Commodore had released a hard drive installer.
How much does it cost, where do I get it from and does it work with all programs?
Ross Bamford, Ilkeston. Derbyshire I would like to put together a disk containing Questions Sc Answers as an examination aid. I have a copy of the Hxperbook multi-media program, which would seem well suited to my needs.
However I would like to know:
1. Would I be allowed to use Hxperbook (or any other commercial
program) because the aim is to sell my efforts?
HARD LUCK I am a young (14-year-old) computer user who is very proficient not only with the software side of computers, but also the hardware side. I recently had the good fortune to pick up a second hand A1500 to replace my knackered A500-K The new machine came complete with a 4Mb RAM expansion (GVP RAM-8) and a 40Mb hard disk.
However, the HD controller (it’s a Datafiyer card), appears to be dead. This leaves me with a working 2.5-inch SCSI mechanism but no controller. I was wondering if the GVP HC8 controller would be a suitable replacement if I bought it without a mechanism. Also, why does the Public Domain diagnostic program AIBB report the RAM card as RAM and SCSI controller when it is only the former?
Any help would be much appreciated because I don't really want to spend my hard-earned cash without knowing if the board is suitable or not.
Ray Stephenson, Morpeth, Northumberland good Public Domain library-, which can easily download ASCII text. Have any Amiga and Psion 3 owners out there had any joy?
2. Because I am dealing with a very minor subject are there other
ASCII-based programs I could use that would enable me to use
other platforms?
R Bird, Dorchester. Dorset Yes. You can distribute your work. There is a program supplied wilh lly irrbook called IIB Reader.
This is freely distributable and can be included on your disk. You don't even have to ask permission.
This utility, as you may know, allows you to run Ilyprrbook applications but not alter them. If your program allows users to alter the data then I'm afraid it probably won't run.
As lor other platforms, you could probably do something similar on the Macintosh with HyperCard, but it would be very much a case of starting again from scratch.
FUN WITH FONTS I would be extremely pleased if you could help nte with a slight problem I'm having with Comptigraphic fonts and Dpaint 4.5 AGA. I am using an A1200 and external drive.
I have got seven disks of CG fonts and I’m Irving to use them in Dpaint. I've copied the fonts on to several disks called CG fonts disk but as I change the fonts directory for Dpaint to use, the requester just goes back to the Fonts: fonts directory on my Dl’aint boot disk.
Also, are scalable fonts the same as CG fonts?
I have a couple of disks of these as well. I am using floppies, not a hard disk.
1 am planning to fit an XL drive so that I can boot from it. I know I can boot from any drive, but I prefer to boot from the internal drive. This will leave me with an internal drive “hanging" about, can I use it as on an external ?
Would it be worth buying the Disk Expander from Power computing, because I would only be using it on my XL drive and standard floppies?
David Bateman, York Dl’aint only recognises Workbcnch-style CG fonts.
This means that you have to install the fonts using the Inteliifont program supplied with Workbench.
This doesn't mean that you have to keep the fonts in the Workbench fonts directory, but it would make it easier if you did. If you are going to have two drives, why not assign Fonts: to a disk?
Remember to copy over the Dl’aint font.
You can turn your internal drive into an external one. But to he honest it is more trouble than it is worlh. Vou will have to build it some sort of case or mount it on something (it is very hard to eject a disk when every time you press the button the drive just moves along the desk), and you will need to make up a cable to earn’ the power and data lo the drive. You will also need to change the jumper setting on the rear of the drive so that it is recognised as unit 1 (just connect the jumper to the rightmost pins ).
Disk Expander is very useful, but perhaps you would be better off not getting an XI. Drive or Disk Expander, and saving up for a hard drive instead?
LEW'S CORNER By Lew Eggebrecht Commodore's Chief of Engineering 1 What are the differences between PCMCIA cards that run at 200 nanoseconds and those that run at 250 nanoseconds, and why do some PCMCIA cards require watt states? Also, what Is the difference between normal PCMCIA RAM and Static RAM?
J Barry, Inverness, Scotland PCMCIA memory is added after the usual auto-config sequence, meaning tt can't be used for RAD, or other warm reset surviving code.
PCMCIA memory is added as lower priority than true Fast RAM.
Normal PCMCIA RAM is less expensive, but has no battery and uses Amiga power to refresh the card. Therefore tt cannot be used as a removable PCMCIA RAMdisk, but is more cost-effective if the primary use is RAM expansion.
* 16 INTO 32 WON'T GO I have an A600 with 2Mb and I have been
wondering if I could run A1200 games on it. I understand that
the A600 is not a 32-bit machine, and that if I can run A1200
software it would have to be with 16-bit graphics.
I thought about buying some A1200 software for it but then changed my mind because it's a lot of money to spend on something that you might not be able to play. Also can I buy a 32-bit chip for my A600?
Michael Walker, Middlesbrough, Cleveland There is no way of upgrading your A600 into an A1200, short of replacing the entire motherboard.
You won't be able to run AGA-only games on the A600 because you don’t have the AGA chipset.
The chips don't just plug in or anything.
You should understand that the A1200 and the A600 have very little in common apart from the operating systems which are similar to one another, but not identical.
It is a miracle that the AI200 can run any software written for older Amigas at all. If you want to use A1200 software, buy an A1200. It may seem harsh, but that's the way life is.
Also, why don't they bring out Beneath A Steel Sky on CD32, so that it would get the full benefit of digitised speech, more graphics and better sound?
Will Microcosm ever be released and how much will it cost? Is Rise Of The Robots getting released on CD32 and if so when?
Colin Lamont, Scotland The card that you refer to is being developed by Microbotics. But it is not finished yet, so it is a hit difficult to tell just how much like an A1200 an adapted CD32 will be.
1 imagine that it will have some sort of through port to allow an FMV module to be added, hut even if it doesn't, you won't want to use both at the same time anyway, will you?
It will have a serial port, so that you can connect to a modem or another serial device. As for your query about the release of CD32 games, you will find a review of Microcosm in the games section of this issue, and I suggest that you check the Continued overleaf * CONSOLE WIE I own a CD32 and an A500 at the moment, but I have heard about a card which will turn the console into an A1200 .
I was considering selling the A500 so I could afford to get the expansion board, do you think this is a good move or would it be better to hold on to the 500 at the moment? Will the expansion still allow me to have an MPEG cartridge and does it have a serial port?
I don't know if this Fax will get to the right department, but here goes anyway. I have a question which I can't seem to get a reply to from the shops.
I am interested in purchasing the new A1230 Turbo* Series 2 accelerator and RAM expansion from GVP for my AI200. I was also interested in buying the A1290 SCSI expansion for it, with the purpose of adding a CD-ROM drive I wanted to know if by doing this i could run ALL of the new CD32 tides through my A1200. If not will there be any way of making this route work or will I have to waste my only major expansion route with the Commodore CD-ROM expansion?
Presuming, that is, that Commodore can be bothered to get off their fat backsides and make one for all the frustrated A1200 owners.
I want the GVP expansion because I need more RAM because I use a sampler and I am enjoying using the Imagine 2.0 3D drawing system that was on your Coverdisk (AF53).
John Stuart, via Fax Firsdy. Can I say that we accept Workbench inquiries by fax, and also via our Spong! BBS (call 0225 311647). Don't expect a faxed reply though.
Sometimes I'll be able to reply on Spong!, but more often it is better to share the advice with other users in these well-respected (except by the Publishing Director who goes through every month to find out how’ many times I said “well") pages. Well, on with the answers.
The GVP expansion is a good option. A CD- ROM drive will allow you to access all sorts of wonderful data. Unfortunately, you won t he able to play CD32 games, al least, not ones designed specifically for the CD32.
There is still considerable doubt about whether Commodore intend to produce a CD addon for the A1200.
It is technologically possible for them to produce such a CD32 emulator but because of the differences in the A1200 and CD32 circuitry, it would be a difficult unit to produce. Difficult)’ means expense, and it doesn't look as though CBM could produce such a device for much less than the price of a CD32. It doesn't look like anyone else will either.

UNDELETE In depth explanation SAMPLERS Works with oil Amigas The Ultimate Backup Utility P"7MMuiii fti'jb b Back up your important data, recover deleted files, protect your confidential info and optimise your disks.
These two Workbench-friendly, easy-to-use programs are a must for all users of floppy or hard drives!
The Coverdisk version of Ami-Back Tools could be the answer to a reader's deleted file dilemma.
I have owned an A1200 for a few months now and I read your magazine for several months before that. I have experienced a few problems in this time, but nothing compared to die catastrophe that has recently occurred.
Toccata (above) and Wavetoofs (right) are both sampling packages which use their own hardware and are therefore not limited the the 8-bit restrictions that apply to some other samplers.
An expensive file has been deleted from a High Density disk. 1 have read about various undeleting utilities, and I wondered if you could recommend a cheap, reliable program, because I am strapped for cash at the moment?
If possible, how about sticking it on a Coverdisk. I am sure many people would benefit.
John G Jones, Clwyd, N. Ivales The best solution is to get hold of a copy of Disksalve from a PD library, or to use Ami-Back Tools from A '57’s Coverdisk. Hurrah for us! Of course if you subscribed to Amiga Format you would have got Disksalve with the At56 Subscribers’ Superdisk. Von can also download it from the AF Bulletin Board, Spongl on 0225 311047.
WHATS UP DOC?
1 have a problem with my Amiga. In the book Amiga Format book Gel The Most Out Of Your Amiga it says that on Workbench: “Double-click on the Shell icon and type DISKDOCKTOR DFO and press return*’. All mine says is "Do not understand DISKDOCKTOR". Does this mean I have a problem with my Workbench?
M Newman, Charley, Lancs Assuming you have a newish Amiga, the answer is no. DisMartor. The disk recovery program, was dropped from Workbench for causing more problems than it ever solved. Do yourself a favour and read the previous letter.
WRITE ON I have an Amiga 500+ and a word processor called Transwrite. I am looking out for a desktop publishing program which is a reasonable price and which would work well with Transwrite. Could you give some advice on what 1 could buy.
Keith Dickenson. Co Down N. Ireland Your choice of a desktop publishing program depends on what you actually want to publish. If it is just going to be a question ol making your own newsletter or designing posters and the like, you could do worse than having a look at Pacesetter from Gold Disk (£40 from Silica 081 309 1111) or Wordworth (a demo of which was given away on AI'56). For more professional work, you will need 1A sampler is very similar to a digitiser. The technical term for a sampler is a transducer - something which transforms a variable physical quantity into an electrical signal.
2 However, a sampler is a very special type of transducer, because the electrical signal has to be converted into one which the Amiga can access.
Computers only work with digital data, so the sound has to be converted from sound waves into a series of binary pulses.
3 This is done by a circuit known as an ADC or Analogue to Digital Converter. The chip is made up of a large number of comparitors which compare the incoming analogue signal to a number of set values. When the correct comparison is made, the result is encoded in a binary form and passed to the Amiga.
4 The Amiga sound system is based around 8-bit samples. And because the Amiga's sound chip is essentially an 8-bit DAC (Digital to Analogue Converter) this makes sampling sounds less complicated and less expensive.
Professional Page (A -34 89%)oi Pages ream IAF20).
Neither of these packages will work terribly well unless you gel some extra RAM and a hard drive.
OVERDUE LIBRARIES I bough! Softwood's word processor Final Writer and installed it on my hard disk. I'm very impressed with the program, the only (rouble is dial when I install some software it also installs new libraries as well. Magazine cover-mounted disks (from other mags of course) being die main culprit. The problems occurred when I then tried to run Final Writer again, no joy!
Is there any way that I can set up a new libraries drawer (such as libs new libs: workbench: libs newlibs), would this work? When new libraries try installing diemselves into my libs drawer would this automatically put them into my newlibs drawer? If it does, this would mean a lot of library duplication when there is probably only one library causing the problem.
Also, could you tell me if there is a Public Domain program that can show me which files and libraries Final Writer is trying to access. Please help, because it is starring to get very annoying paying £125 for a piece of software that keeps on breaking down.
Me Carthy, Boothville, Northampton 5 Two things effect the quality of a sample - the sample speed and the the sample depth. For superb, realistic quality sounds, you need to sample at audio Compact Disc rates - 24kHz 6 16 bits.
6 The highest frequency that will be registered by a sample, is a frequency of half the sampling rate. This is known as the Shannon Hartley sampling principle.
7 Stereo samplers usually work by having a very fast ADC unit which samples at double speed and switches between the two sound inputs.
8 Sample data is usually compressed for storage.
The standard format is 8SVX.
9 Samples are usually recorded directly into Chip RAM. The length of the sample you can record is thus determined by how much RAM you have.
Some packages can sample direct to hard disk and so get around this problem. A good example of such a sampler is Afegafosound from HiSoft (0525 718181), which was reviewed in Amiga Format Issue S3 and scored 89 per cent Libraries are small sections of program code which perform common functions. Instead of these basing to be re-written for every new program, they are compiled as a separate file. This saves the programmer time, and saves you space because many programs can access the same libratv.
Occasionally, libraries are updated to include new routines or better wars of doing the same things. Libraries are backwardlv compatible, so a new version will do all the things the old one did.
As well as any additions. Tlieoreticallv anvwav.
Sometimes libraries contain bugs, so sometimes they do not work exactly as they should. It is rare for programmers to use these mistakes as ¦undocumented features" but when they do. And the bug is fixed in the next version, their programs no longer work.
There should Ik- no problem with replacing old libraries with newer versions. You tan store your libraries in a second directory and activate them using the command: assign libs: libs:newlibs add There is a PD program called SnoopDos, written by Kdd Carrol which can be found in any good PD library. It is only small, so it is usually part of a compilation.

get the most out of your Amiga, you need to understand how to
use the Workbench startup-sequences. Pat McDonald reveals
all... ASSUMING THAT YOU have followed Iasi month's tutorial,
you should now have a reasonable idea of what is where on the
Workbench disk. This month's tutorial is a more in-depth
explanation of how the standard Startup-Sequence works. I’ll be
going into more depth about how the standard Startup-Sequence
works. In a future tutorial, I'll cover more about how disks
other than Workbench disks, such as Amiga FomaI Coverdisks,
work.
However, many disks are not supposed to work with Workbench. An easy way to spot such disks is to put them into a disk drive after Workbench has loaded. If the icon comes up with DFO:NDOS or similar, then Workbench simply cannot deal with the disk.
The place to start understanding how Workbench disks work is with the Startup- Sequence. Last month I showed you how to edit the startup-sequence on Workbench. If you are still having some difficulty doing this, don't give up. The best way to learn more is to experiment.
You may think the whole exercise is bevond you and is not really worth the effort. Well, I can t hold your hand and teach you everything about Workbench just from these page, and the worst damage you can possibly do is mess up your copy of Workbench. Remember. ALWAYS use a copy of the Workbench floppy disk, NEVER use the original. Getting a replacement is a nightmare unless, of course, you know someone who has the same model Amiga as you.
Finally, I'll just repeat that all of these tutorials are designed for Workbench 3. Release 2 of Workbench is very similar and most of the stuff should work - but if you are using an older version of Workbench, then either upgrade or find another guru.
NEXT MONTH: How to install a printer driver.

XC AD needs loads and loads of Assigns, but it does this automatically when installing on to hard
disk. MovieSetter doesn't - I had to do it by hand, which is why the Assign command doesn't only use capitals. The Amiga doesn’t care about big or little letters.
One of the most useful Shell commands for hard disk users is Assign. Many games and quite a few utilities do not work from a hard disk without it. The command is used to set up a global disk name.
When a program asks for a disk (to get some information from it) the Assign command steps in and says "That floppy disk is available on the hard drive".
However, you won't necessarily want to edit the Startup-Sequence to put your Assigns in. For one thing, the Startup-Sequence tends to grow alarmingly as you assign various disks. For another, Commodore actually check for a file called User-Startup, which is where you are supposed to put your Assign commands (keeps them all in the same place, you see).
If you want to run a program automatically when your Amiga boots, you can also put the program name in the Startup-Sequence or User-Startup. However, most programs will do this anyway if you just drag their icons to the WBStartup drawer. Occasionally you will find a program that has to be run from the Startup-Sequence, but this is quite rare and is getting rarer.
The Assign command works as follows,- imiTrar Assign Diskname: Pathname sequence startup-sequence.backup Startup-Sequence,info startup-sequence.old Startup.DM Startup.DM.info StepflndRepeat .pprx Subst ttuteFont.pprx Tablelnport.pprx Tine.ced ToggleLace.ced Diskname is the name of the floppy disk, while pathname is where the contents of the floppy are stored on disk. So, say you wanted to play Silent Service 2 from a drawer called Sub on a hard disk called HDO, you would need two assigns (because the game comes on two floppy disks) like so;- Assign SSIla: HDO:Sub Assign SSIIb: HD0:Sub One word
of caution - when you want to delete an assigned drawer, you have to remove the Assign(s) from the Startup-Sequence or User-Startup files, and reboot. Otherwise you get error code 202 (object already in use).
The Startup-Sequence is found in the S Directory of your Workbench disk, along with many other useful files.

This is a comment. Any line that begins with a semi I colon 0)
I* never executed - it’s purely for humans to read. This line
just says what version the Startup- Sequence is and when it was
written.
2Setpatch is a constantly updated program to patch any subtle errors that are built into Kickstart 3.
Rather than having to rip the machine apart and fit a new ROM chip, this program fixes those problems.
New bugs are found all the time, so if you see a newer version of Setpatch, copy it. I can't see Commodore protecting their copyright on this program without losing an awful lot of face.
3 Version returns the current version of Kickstart and Workbench. It can also be used to check the version number of programs and library files. Library files are updated much more often than Setpatch, and some programs need a particular version of a library file in order to operate.
4Addbuffers is used to control how much memory is used by a disk drive for buffering information.
Have you noticed that Workbench often finishes a job.
But the disk light stays on? That's because some of the information is still flowing between disk drive and buffer memory. In this case, it produces a modest increase in average floppy drive speed.
5Failat sets an error code limit - in other words, how bad things can get before a Startup-Sequence fails. 21 is quite high, which means that even if the Startup-Sequence cannot find a disk, drawer or file, it will keep executing.
6Makedir creates a new directory, in this case four new directories all in the RAM disk. T is used for temporary storage, clipboards are used for exchanging information between programs and ENV is used to store Environment data - the exact setup. Sys is inside ENV, and is used for Preference settings. Having all these in RAM means that all programs can access them without disk swaps, and the memory consumption is very small.
7Copy copies any permanent environment settings into the ENV directory in the RAM disk. Notice that any messages produced by the copy program will not be printed. Instead they will be dumped in NIL:, Amiga limbo land.
8Resident copies a command from the C directory and stores it in memory, which saves putting a Workbench disk back in the drive when you want to use a command. However, commands can be quite big.
So don't make too many resident or you will not have enough memory to run any of your programs! Notice the PURE flag - which means the program must not interfere with other programs. Programs are like people. Sometimes they are pure but mostly they ain’t.
9 Assign is used to tell the Amiga where to find the contents of a disk without having to insert a floppy disk. ENV. T and CLIPS are all assigned to the RAM disk. That's why they have to be created first because everything in the RAM disk is deleted when you reset the machine. Rexx is a special disk used by Arexx, and all Arexx scripts should be in the S directory with the other scripts. Locale is usually a separate floppy disk, but can be created on a booting hard disk.
This line saves inserting the Locale disk on a hard drive setup. DEVS is automatically assigned on reset because the Amiga NEEDS a Devs drawer on the boot disk in order to use external devices. Keymaps. Printer Drivers and CrossDOS live in DEVS. As well as looking at the LIBS drawer on Workbench for libraries, the Amiga will also look in the Classes drawer. The ADD flag means the Amiga will check both directories for a given library. Finally, the Help drawer is assigned to the Locale drawer, assuming it exists. If it doesn't exist you won't get an error because of the high FailAt number.
Bindrivers starts up all peripheral drivers I (assuming that they are on Workbench). This is necessary if you want the Amiga to use external devices like printers.
Mount is used to mount any add-on drivers, for I instance CrossDOS. It is also used to mount (connect to the Amiga) non-standard devices which have their own custom drivers. Anything that is in DOSDrivers and which has an icon (.info file) gets set off. So to speak.
«lf Exists is used to see if a drawer or file is available. If there isn't a fonts drawer on your Workbench boot disk, hard or floppy, then every time a font has to read from a disk, the Amiga will ask for a disk called Fonts. The Endlf command marks the end of this checking procedure.
If Exists. You can have several If Exists state- 119 ments. This looks really complex, but what it boils down to is that if you have a particular monitor setting, then the Amiga will pick it. A special check is required for VGAOnly, because this limits you to very high resolution. Otherwise, the script is copied to a file called M in the T directory, executed and deleted.
Setenv seems a bit pointless at first. It makes a ¦ variable in the ENV: drawer, and sets it to the second variable. Unset removes this setting, but leaves the variable intact. If you try examining the Kickstart and Workbench variables in the ENV disk, you will find that rather than containing the words “Kickstart" and "Workbench" they contain the version numbers of both products. This is used mostly only on specialist Amiga systems with more than one Kickstart or Workbench.
« Iprefs is the program that turns on all your preference settings, from ENV:Sys. If you managed to remove all the NIL: settings from last month's tutorial, you will have noticed that Iprefs put up a requester saying "Please close all Windows".
That's because you're not really supposed to - but I just love winding up this little so and so. Just click on Cancel to get rid of the requester. Oh yes, note that nothing gets displayed until Iprefs is run, which is why you don't often see the initial AmigaDOS and CBM copyright message on Workbench 3 machines.
Jflj Conclip starts up its own Shell process, and I lets you cut and paste words from a Shell into CLIPS:. As you can do this anyway, it is largely a redundant feature for everyday usage, but it is worth leaving in because you never know when you need to cut some text messages from a Shell and copy them into a word processor to prove to Commodore that there may be a bug in the operating system. Once in a blue moon usage.
Jfl ¦¦ Path is used to tell the Amiga where to look for I M any files that it normally can't find. It will look through all those drawers for a given command, library file or whatever before it gives up. This is a very useful command, because it enables you to organise your data as you wish without giving the Amiga a nervous breakdown.
0% If Exists again! If there is a User-Startup file in ¦ % the S directory, it gets executed. Otherwise Endlf aborts the process, as usual. You can never use an If without an Endlf.
Jfl| Resident command, this time removing the ¦ Assign and Execute commands from RAM, and giving you more workspace. Resident commands save on disk swaps and run a lot faster, because the RAM disk has no moving parts and therefore works faster than a floppy or even a hard disk.
ft LoadWB loads Workbench. Without this com- mand in a Sartup-Sequence or User-Startup script, you can't get to Workbench.
EndCLI aborts any Shell process, in this case it A I aborts the Startup-Sequence, leaving you just looking at Workbench.

COMMS A I m . I 1 I APRIL 1994 HANGING Committed to communicating? Stimulated by discussion? Richard Baguely tells you how you can hold forth while keeping the bills to a minimum.
One of the best Off-Line Readers available is Q-Blue. Written by Paul Kienitz. An OLR enables you to create and read messages at your leisure while keeping the on-line cost of your telephone bill to a minimum.
FROM STAR TREK TO SAUSAGES THOSE OF YOU who are new to comms will no doubt Ire busy enjoying sending and receiving messages from around the world, but within three months you may be in for a nasty shock: namely the size of your telephone bill.
Reading and writing messages on-line is expensive and unnecessary. Not only are you risking running up a huge phone bill, but you are also preventing other people getting on to the Bulletin Board Service (BBS). What you need is a way of reading and writing messages without being on the phone. In fact, what you need is an Off-Line Reader (OLR).
An OLR enables you to squash down all the messages you want lo read into one file. You then download this file before hanging up the phone and using the OLR to read and reply to the messages at your leisure.
Italia tn.tr Xaraia - Olaatta US t" al attains an a ilia Q al til _ If the BBS you get your messages from supports the Silver Xpress standard you could use the Amiga version.
Once you've finished, you can compress your replies into a file and upload this to the BBS. This means that you will only need to spend a couple of minutes actually connected to the BBS, thus making your phone bill less of a headache.
You can also take your time considering how to reply to a message without the pressure of watching the phone bill mounting, so your replies are going to be more relevant and less rushed.
The two most widely-used OLR programs on the Amiga are Silver Xfrress and Q-iltue. Both of these use the popular QWK format, which describes how the BBS stores and compresses the messages you read. Silver Xpress can also use the CALL SPONG! NOW ON: 0225 311647 Don't forget that you can call Spong!, the Amiga Format Bulletin Board which offers a huge variety of E-Mail echoes; a comprehensive range of file areas (including programs mentioned in Amiga Format) and a wide selection of on-line games. All speeds up to V32bis are supported.
Get in touch now by calling: 0225 311647.
• '......i,: ir.....n.....if..... Xpress format, which is widely
used on PC-based BBS, and Q-Hiue can also use the popular Blue
Wave format.
If you aren't sure which is for you, check with the Sysop of the BBS you are planning to use to see which format would be most suitable.
The first time you call the BBS you will not be able to post messages immediately because the Sysop will check that you are who you claim to be to stop people sneaking 011 to the network under false pretences and sending offensive messages.
You will need to set up a few details, such as which message areas you want to read and what form of compression you should use. Once you have worked out how to get the BBS to squash and send your messages you could even write a script to automate the process. Both A'Comm and Term have powerful scripting languages designed for just such a purpose and some BBS will also have All BBS carry a range of message echoes on subjects as varied as AMOS to zoology. Star Trek and sausages. E-Mail enables you to participate in these discussions and express your opinions.
The specific details of sending a message vary between Bulletin Boards, although many options are constant between boards. For instance, when you are reading a message, the R key will allow you to send a reply, and the W key to write a new scripts for this purpose ready for you to use.
There are some people out there who will tell you that comms is a bad idea unless you have a fast and expensive modem and lots of money to cover the resulting increase in your phone bill. This is not tate. All that's needed is a bit of caution and an ability to keep labs 011 your phone bill.
I started out with a BT surplus V22 modem which cost me £25, and only moved 011 to a faster modem after several months when I was handling large amounts of mail and needed to speed up the process. There are several programs available which will help you work out the approximate cost of your calls from the call log of your comms program. Alternatively you could always use a stopwatch and notepad.
But, if you find a good BBS a local phone call away, calling it could soon be like nipping down the pub for an orange juice with a few friends. C5 one. Remember to keep your messages relevant, so don't post a message asking for help solving Monkey Island 3 in the AMOS programming echo.
If you are looking for a specific echo, you may need to look on several Bulletin Boards. There are a number of E-Mail networks and not all BBS belong to all networks. Alternatively, tune in to Amiga Format next month when we will be a looking at the networks and the subjects they cover.

GRIPS Brian Larkman shows you how to create interesting and
complex shapes using the Mold requester.
ALMOST EVERY 3D modelling system offers two basic methods to construct objects from simple profiles. These are called Extrusion and Latheing. In Imagine both methods come under the heading of Molding. Two other Molding tools are also offered by Imagine. Replication and Conform To. These will not be covered in this tutorial but they are quite straightforward once you understand Extrusion.
At their most basic, the procedures of Extrusion and latheing are quite similar. A profile or cross-section must first be constructed using AddLines mode, and then copied and moved repeatedly, each point on the copy being linked by more lines to equivalent points on the original.
All of the faces created in the process must be triangular so extra lines are added to ensure this.
If the chosen Molding is Extrusion, the copy is just pushed back along the V axis (into the screen from the Front View) to form an object such as a picture frame or motorway crash barrier. II the Molding method is Latheing (called Spin or Sweep in Imagine) the profile copy is pushed back and rotated around the Z axis to form a wine glass or turned chair leg.
In fact, Extrusions can be rotated as well as having their X and Z axes scaled so the clear cut difference benveen Latheing and Extrusion begins to break down. Extrusion is by far the most powerful and therefore complex tool in the Mold Requester so we'll concentrate on that.
The parameters for Replication are identical to those for Extrusion except the starting object is not a profile but a complete object. Try using a small Primitive Sphere or a simple 'Slat'. The SPIN AND SWEEP (ionform To tools can only really be understood by trying them - especially Conform To Path; a totally contrary tool!
If your versions of these tutorials turn out differently you may have some parameter slightly different or, more likely, some profile set to a different size. Compare the size of your screen grid and profile with each other and those shown in the illustrations. The relative sizes are quite important. The Mold tool is used in the Detail Editor. It is assumed that you have followed most of the previous tutorials in this series and therefore know how to Quickrender. Set up the Stage and do the final renders.

Ithe difference between the Spin and Sweep functions is best illustrated by example. Add an axis using Functions Add Axis or F4. Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a suitable profile of the classic wineglass. Then select Object Mold Spin and click on Perform (accept the defaults for now). Notice the curious cone at the top of the glass.
2 Use Project Undo and then repeat the Spin process described on the left but choose Sweep instead of Spin. This time the expected wineglass is produced. Basically. Spin is intended for objects with an interior surface, such as solids, whereas Sweep produces 'skin' objects. If you use Spin make sure that the first and last points lie on the vertical Z axis.

Extrusion: Most of your basic objects will be created in this
way. This creates a straight object using the profile as its
cross-section.
Add an axis using Functions Add Axis or F4.
Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a suitable profile of some wooden molding (use your imagination). When you are satisfied, click to create the last point on top of the first one. This will create a closed profile. Select Mold Extrude and set Length = 500.
2 Corn Dolly: It is possible to rotate and scale the profile as it is extruding to produce a huge range of shapes depending on the parameters used and the position of the initial axis point.
Add an axis. Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a hexagonal profile of six points around the axis.
Select Mold Extrude and set Y Rotation = 1080 (three turns = 3x360), X Scaling = 0.00, Z Scaling =
0. 00, (final X 8r Y sizes as a proportion of the starting
size) Length = 300, Sections = 36. If this is rendered with
Phong turned OFF in Attributes it will retain the angular Corn
Dolly look.
3Cowhorn: If the profile is moved so that the axis is at its edge and then rotated, a horn shaped spiral is formed.
Add an axis. Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a hexagonal profile of six points, offset so that the axis is on the circumference. The position of the profiles axis sets the starting point for extrusions which also involve rotation or scaling elements. Select Mold Extrude and set Y Rotation = 360, X Scaling = 0.00, Z Scaling = 0.00, Length = 300, Sections = 10 Extruda Data

Spring: one look at the corkscrew in picture 4 above shows
you that its construction method was ideal. The turns have a
flattened, blade-like cross-section because the profile was
at right angles to the extrusion path. To produce a spiral
with a round cross-section like a coil spring, the profile
needs to be parallel with the extrusion.
Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a circular profile of 12 points, offset by its diameter from the axis. Select Mold Extrude and set Y Rotation = 1440 (four turns = 4x360), Length = 500, Sections = 100 2 Threaded Bolt: the extruded profile does not have to be a closed section. For a threaded bolt or screw a simple V of three points will work well.
Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a V-shaped profile of three points, offset by 2 or 3 times its diameter from the axis (this will dictate the width of the bolt).
Select Mold Extrude and set Y Rotation = 3600 (10 turns = 10x360), Length = 750, Sections = 200.
3 Wood Screw: if X and Z scaling are used as well a reasonable wood screw can be made using the same V profile.
Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a V-shaped profile of three points, offset by two or three times its diameter from the axis. Select Mold Extrude and set Y Rotation = 3600 (10 turns = 10x360), X Scaling = 0.00, Z Scaling = 0.00, Length = 300, Sections = 200. (With a slight change of profile
- a U shape instead of V, a sea shell shaped like a unicorn horn
is formed.)

How spline paths can be used to Extrude Along.
Paths can be made using Functtons Add Open or Closed Path (to give a two-control point path) or T by AddOng) several Axis points, multi-picking them (hold down the shift key) and selecting Object MakePath.
A Path can also be given additional points by picking It and selecting Functions Fracture or it can be edited using ModefEditPath. Because it is a Spline Path, selecting a point in EditPath mode and rotating It bends the whole section of the curve, allowing complex paths to be made.

f J SJ w 1 L_~ j_ 4 Corkscrew: If the profile is moved right away from the axis and rotated, a helical spiral is formed.
Add an axis. Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a hexagonal profile of six points, offset by its diameter from the axis. Select Mold Extrude and set Y Rotation = 1440 (4 turns = 4x360), Length = 300, Sections = 100. The tip of the screw will need some point editing to make a point. Add a stem (drag the first section back away from point) and wooden handle.
Ioval Mirror Frame: the simplest form of Extrude Along Path pushes the basic profile along a named path. You can choose to align the profile's Y axis with the path or not. And to keep the profile's X axis horizontal - or not.
Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a suitable profile of a mirror frame cross-section. Select Functions Add ClosedPath to close up the profile.
You may need to make the oval path larger.
This can easily be achieved by moving the two control points further apart (just click and drag them). With the profile picked select Object Mold Extrusion and set Along Path, Align Y to Path and 30 or 40 Sections.
The more sections you make, the gentler the curve on the completed object. Remember that making the objects too complicated wastes memory though, so only use as many sections as you need for the final image.

necklace shells can be produced.
Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create an oval or complex curved profile, with the axis at the intended centre (the edge of the oval).
Using the complex curve profile select Mold Extrude and set Y Rotation = 1800 (five turns), X Scaling = 0.00, Z Scaling = 0.00, Length = 30, Sections = 200. With the oval profile try Y Rot = 720 (two turns), X Scale =0.2, Length = 30, Sections = 50 A ¦ 3 L. _____ m .... ---------- L_ 1_.
2 Curly Cable: the normal extrusion parameters all work with Path Extrusions so a Y Rotation can be added to give the effect of a telephone 'curly cable' snaking along.
Using Mode AddLines in the Front View create a circular profile of 12 points, offset by its diameter from the axis.
Select Functions Add OpenPath. Use Mode EditPath to produce a suitably convoluted path. You can add extra control points by selecting one end and using Functions Fracture.
For a really complex Path use Add Axis a number of times and Object Make Path. In this case you will need to rename the resulting path in the Attributes Requester to PATH or check its name there and type it in the Extrusion Requester. Select Mold Extrude and set Along Path. Align Y to Path, Y Rotation = 7200 (20 turns). Sections = 200. You may need to adjust the last two depending on the length of path.
3 Oyster Shell: X and Z Scaling also work with Path Extrusions so a small profile can be made to curve along a path and fan out at the same time. With a lot of fiddling a reasonable oyster or scallop shell can be made, (yes, that’s what they are supposed to look like Produce a zig-zagging profile using Mode Addlines. Construct a path and then extrude the profile along it as shown in the illustration on the left. The extra depth of the profile indentations is to overcome Phong Smoothing's habit of smoothing everything out. The object may look great in wireframe, but it won’t look so hot in
the finished image.

the Amiga Centres of Excellence at Penlrefoelas in Wales. Speaking to Dawn Levack, and Kieron Sumner of Commodore, I could sense a new confidence.
After a year of setbacks, and occasional near disasters, the company is facing the future with new leaders, new products, a new after-sales service and a new dealership chain. Things haven't looked this rosy since the halcyon days when Commodore were selling the dear old Vic-20s and C64s by the bucketload.
Commodore are happy to confirm that tomorrow's AAA machines will be backwardly compatible with today's software (as long as it complies with developer guidelines), and they aren't denying the possibility of an A1200 CD drive in die same disturbing way they were a couple of months ago.
There are even new high-end machines to be unveiled before you read this. We'll bring you full details next issue.
Altogether, this has been a great month to be an Amiga owner. There may have been times in all our minds when a console, PC or Mac appealed. But one thing that Amiga owners feel, and quite rightly, is a great loyalty to our machine. The determination of Commodore to maintain, strengthen and improve the brand lias proved us all right.

Julie Shopping Trolley We agree to give you all our mats. We realise that we are about to be assimilated, and that resistance is futile. And we've just got a new carjvt. You'll have to collect them yourself though.
BLOB BLAB Dear Mr Bloke or Mrs Bloke Bliby blob blabbe blibby blabby blibby blob and blabby blobby blib blab blobish Mr Blobby Why is it that you people who write these wacky letters have got the most appalling grammar and spelling? And just look al my picture at the top left of this page! Do I look like a blobby bloke to you ?
FMV VFM?
Full Motion Video is undoubtedly (sic) the future of home entertainment.
However, I am concerned about the recent pricing of the FMV module for the CD-12. Although many people were surprised and pleased to learn that Commodore had launched it at under £200,1 frankly I Please don't call me frankly
- Ed) was disappointed.
Philips have launched their FMV module at £150. This includes some extra on-board memory, gives the CD-i extra graphic capabilities and can still offer FMV capabilities. Commodore could very easily sell their excellent FMV module at £150, or even £130.
In the meantime, I shall not be purchasing an FMV module for my CD32 until the price drops by at least £50. The asking price of £200 is daviight robbery, and frankly (Look, I asked you not lo call me that - Ed), too expensive. Of course, alternatively they could drop the price of the CD32.
If Commodore don't drop the current price of the FMV module (or CD32) they will undoubtfully (sic, again) lose the FMV war.
Richard Hutchinson, Hawley That has to be one of the least adeptly argued letters I have ever read. You stale that you won't buy an FMV add-on unless Commodore reduce its price, OR that of the CD32 itself. But since you already have a CD32 how could this latter action possibly save you any money? Bui thank you for telling us that Commodore could easily sell their FMV unit for £150 or less.
This infomation came as a great surprise to us at Amiga Format, ami I am sure that Commodore will be equally shocked to realise they don't have as clear an understanding of their overheads and profit margins as you do.
Here at Amiga Format, we think the CD32 is pretty reasonable value (it would be belter at £250, and £199 would be a bargain), and the FMV add-on is attractively priced too. The fact that the huge, and financially secure, Philips have lo offer their FMV unit as a 'virtual loss-leader to attract people to the failed CD-i format is no reflection on the value of Commodore's equipment.
If you want to find out more about CD32 and FMV I can heartily recommend Amiga Format’s own Amiga CD32 magazine, which will be in the shops, complete will: a cover-mounted CD packed with games, early in April.
THE BEST IDEA We've got the best idea ever to improve the sales of games and decrease the amount of copied ones. Why don't people like Bullfrog, Ocean, and Team 17 put more things like posters, stickers, badges and objects that represent the game inside the box along with the disks and instructions. This would make people want to buy the game rather than have just the copy.
Michael Harris and Janies Tyrrell, Redditch It’s a good idea, and one which several companies hair already adopted. Core's abysmal Blastar came with a fabulous poster, and Zool 2 had a lolly, some Do Not Disturb signs, and more, in the box. Psygnosis even used lo include a T-shirt with their games.
Bui is that what people really want?

MISSED THE POINT - US?
I write in response to Art McKendrick's letter about autostereograms.
He (and you all) seem to have missed the point - you don't need 3D glasses to see the picture, but you do need them to see it in 3D!!!
The confusion seems to involve those old-style 3D glasses that had one green eye and one red. Allow me to explain. 3D image perception relies on each eye seeing a slightly different image, that is why Virtual Reality helmets have two image screens in them. This is how the red green glasses worked, with the TV picture containing red and green images that are slightly different and offset so that each eye sees only its own image because its opposing image appears dark through the particular lens in question. Get it!! Well I'm trying to keep it brief, but I am prepared to write a full article on
it in greater detail.
The autostereogram principle is slightly different. This works on the theory that your eye reacts more slowly to dark images than to brighter ones. The glasses have a dark lens in one eye. So that eye gives a slow response. The brain automatically 'exposes' the image to balance it to the other 'non-darkened' eye. The effect of this is that one eye sees the frame before, which on a static image is nearly no different, but if the image moves, say in a panning shot each eye sees different images due to the delay and a 3D image is perceived.
There is a little more physics involved which means that the movement has to be in a certain direction (on the 3D glasses that has to be left to right in the foreground), but apart from that, no other technique is needed, so all the 3D footage shot in 3D week used normal cameras and recording equipment. That is why you don't need special glasses to view it, but no 3D perception is seen without the glasses.
I don’t know why you need a program to design these images, I've done it using a Dpaint anim. If you want any further information, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.
Steve Leatherbarrow, Abbots Langley You are right about someone missing the point, Steve. But I am afraid that it wasn't us. This is an autostereogram... on the Wild Side, and we all saw what naughty boys their owners were, Too. But you do win a prize, and Amiga Format T-shirt, binder and pin badge set are on their way to you now!
But the issue here is do we really believe that Becky is 73k years old? That's mighty good handwriting if you are, Becky. Most importantly, advise your sister to steer well clear of Nick, or she will get something quite nasty.
The picture above is the Amiga Format logo. Sou1, you COULD create that in Dpaint, hut it is better to use the Random Dot Stereogram program.
To view the image hold the page in front of your face, about 10cm from your eyes tthis is to de-focus the eyes), now draw the page back until it is about 45cm away. Don't attempt to focus on the page, but gaze right through it, and an image should begin to appear, Once you can see it, it becomes quite clear.
While we're at it, thanks to everyone who sent us letters about autostereoscopy and copies of the RDS program. We included the program on last month's Subscribers' Superdisk, and it is available from good PD companies.
GIVE 'EM A SLAP I was reading an article entitled Choosing a Computer, from which I take the following quote: 'Many children will prefer you to buy them an Amiga or an Atari or a console in the shape of Sega or Nintendo and you may very well do so. However, don't be fooled that these platforms are anything more than entertainment. If you want to educate your children about computers or use your computer to educate them, the PC is the only one for you.'
What an idiot! The writer of this pathetic article obviously needs a good slapping, wouldn't you say?
Lisa Walters, Grays, Essex We would! But just look al how this article axis written, Ihe author obviously has as much understanding of computers as tiny do of the English language. And we dim' condone violence.
NAKED MEN On returning home this morning with my newly purchased shrink-wrapped Amiga Format Special, I was appalled to find it contained a glossy magazine called Women On Top. If I wish to see such a magazine I shall buy one, I certainly do not want to have one forced upon me. I am glad that, as I live alone, no-one saw me open it. I am embarrassed to have it in the house, but I have no choice, because in my area the bins are not emptied till Thursday.
I have bought Amiga ... ( Formal and its ’ *

* o p.**? -* Specials for more than two years, I find them
interesting, but if this happens again I shall stop buying
them.
I would expect a higher standard from Future Publishing.
Margaret Cox, Stockport Firstly, let me apologise that you were put through such a terribly, terribly distressing experience. And secondly, let me completely absolve Future Publishing of responsibility.
We do not supply Amiga Format Specials in shrink-wrap, and we hair no association with the publishers of Women On Top magazine. It is the first time I have seen the euphemism glossy' used fora magazine full of naked people. But rest assured, if Future were to create a glossy' magazine, it would be of a far higher quality than WoT, and we wouldn't give ft away with AFS either.
COSTA DEL AMIGA I was reading through my back issues of Amiga Formal when 1 came across a letter from Richard Munden (Issue 41, December 1992) concerning the use of Amigas in the television industry. Well 1 work for a local television company on the Costa Del Sol, called MITV. And, you guessed it, we use Amigas to do all our computer effects, from simple titles to futuristic anims.
Our software is Scala 500 and Deluxe Paint 3, two well-known packages to say the least. What we do on the Amiga couldn't be matched on any other computer, PC or Macintosh valued at twice the price. So, in the sad event of the Amiga going belly up due to piracy, I am certain that there would always be a BECKY'S SISTER Yes. Yes! We all saw the Amigas on Walk professional market. If anybody out there works on the Amiga in multimedia presentation, please send me a letter.
Also, if anyone has any IFF pictures they would like to have broadcast to 50,000 viewers, please send them to me.
Martin McDonald Edif. Alhambra 1 - 6B Los Boliches Fuengirola, Malaga Spain We are convinced there should be a professional video market for the Amiga in Europe, especially with the recent boom in satellite and video stations. But it seems that, in the UK at least, TV companies are slow to give the Amiga the credit il deserves. Maybe the new OpalVision video add-ons will spur a revolution similar to the one the Video Toaster caused in the United States. If you are getting great results with an A500, imagine what you could achieve with an A4000 and OpalVision.'
We are very keen to do a feature on you.
How are you fixed for July?
COMM ON EVERYBODY I read your comms feature in Issue 56, and I was really excited by the idea, and so I bought a modem. It really has added another dimension to my computing, and I would recommend a modem to any Amiga enthusiast.
To the point, though. Why not start your own BBS? It could be used to complement the sacred pages of Amiga Format, and would make comms a more attractive proposition for many of your readers. For example, some sort of talk- back could be used for debate, or perhaps you could set up a special BBS for subscribers to your magazine. Say, for example, Joe has wiped his Coverdisk, then he can just download it from you, with his subscriber number being proof of Amiga Format readership.
All this would doubtlessly prove a benefit for the Amiga comms scene, and could earn you money on the side.
Richard Larxleyfortinbrass, Petersfield We are glad to hear that our comms coverage has persuaded you to buy a modem, and we are hoping a whole lot more Amiga users will do the same. But how carefully did you read the feature in Issue 56? Did you see the box at the top of page 33, the one which concludes: 'Next month we will be taking you on a four o Spong!, the Amiga Format Bulletin Board, and we will be giving you full details on how to join the revolution.'
Yes, we do haiv our own Bulletin Board, the number is 0225 333677, and unlike your suggestion, it is absolutely free.
Unfortunately, we can't offer Coivrdisk back-ups in this fashion. All it would require is for someone to discover a subscriber's number, and then pass it on Icomms is a great way of disseminating information) and the software would be spread to millions of non-Amiga Format readers. Most of the software we place on Coverdisks is not licensed for this form of distribution. But Spong! Will be absolutely packed with hundreds, if not thousands, of other useful files and they are open lo anyone, Amiga Format subscriber or not.
Turn on, dial up, log on I FRACTAL I was delighted with the fractal generator program included with AF56.
However, you are quite wrong when you say the Mandelbrot set is described by 'a set of complicated equations’.
In fact, the whole point of the Mandelbrot set is that its complexity is generated by extremely simple equations, such as v=X2-x. That such simple equations can give rise to complex behaviour is one of the tenets of chaos theory. Nor does the Mandelbrot set 'describe the universe in terms of fractals'. Mathematics is not a description of the universe.
Steve Harrison, Chester We know that the Mandelbrot equation appears simple on paper. But when X equals something as complicated as the square root of minus one (readers, don't even try thinking about this at home unless you have at least 'A' Level Pure Maths) the resultant equation can hardly be described as simple.
Mathematics can uvll be described as a model with which to interpret the universe.
But we don't want to continue this conversation, we can feel an anorak coming on.
Anyway, glad you enjoyed FractalPro.
TOP TIPS I've got two money-saving ideas that can save readers thousands of pounds collectively and a few quid individually: Continued overleaf THE MAN AT THE TOP As well as running Commodore UK, David Pleasance also wishes to keep you Amiga owners informed about what's going on. Send your questions to him at the usual Amiga Format address, and await the answers in this very column... HAVING A HARD TIME I have an A1200 with an 85Mb hard drive which I purchased from Gordon Harwood Computers, as part of the Desktop Dynamite promotion advertised in the Christmas issue of Amiga Format (AF54). I
am having great difficulty because no manual was supplied with the hard drive. Time and time again the Workbench manual says to consult the hard drive manual for information. This is not my first Amiga, but I have never had a hard drive before.
Gordon Harwood Computers say Commodore have not supplied a manual and that they cannot help me. Customer services at Commodore say they have no plans to supply a manual and that I should contact Gordon Harwood.
The advertisement clearly stated that manuals were included. I feel Commodore are responsible - what can I do?
Keith Graham Richardson, Sheffield, S Yorks I am really sorry you have this problem, but unfortunately in this instance Commodore is not at fault.
We have adopted a policy in the UK not to supply any At200 machines with hard drives. This is not to be difficult, but rather to make it easier for users, like yourself, to specify the capacity of hard drive you wish to purchase. The dealers have a selection of different hard drive options available to them, and supply on demand.
This, of course, means that our machines are not supplied with a hard drive manual because we don't supply the hard drive versions.
In my opinion, the dealer should supply the manual which comes with the hard drive that has been installed in the A1200. Because there are several different suppliers of hard drives you need to identify which drive is in your machine, so go back to your dealer.
WARRANTY WORRY I bought an A1200 Desktop Dynamite package from Currys in Wrexham, but when I opened the box there was no warranty to post off to Commodore. Currys said my till receipt was my guarantee, but I thought I needed to register the machine in the first week of purchase. Does this mean my warranty with Commodore is void?
Currys also said they have an in-house service department. Are they authorised under the warranty to carry out repairs? They tried to sell me an extended guarantee of three years without informing me I had a one-year warranty already.
Robert Schaap, Wrexham, Clwyd Most Desktop Dynamite Packs do include a Commodore Warranty Card, which needs to be registered in order to obtain our in-home warranty service. However, Currys have chosen to fulfil the in-home warranty from their own service company rather than use the facility we offer. I can say that they do have a first-class servicing company and are very keen to support products bought at their outlets, so I do not believe you will any way be disadvantaged by this. Furthermore, Currys do accept the till receipt as evidence of date of purchase for warranty eligibility.
As far as the extended warranty is concerned, I can only assume there was a misunderstanding, because in all of our dealings with Currys, we have only experienced the highest level of integrity. I would certainly recommend that you consider taking out an extended warranty program, because a small investment now could save an expensive repair should something go wrong with your Amiga after the first 12 months.

1) Don'!, whatever you do, buy a mouse mat. Use Amiga Formal
instead. It's got a nice flat surface, it's much more
interesting to read, and you probably buy it anyway. As your
collection increases though, so will the height of your DIY
multistorey mouse mat. This would mean having to operate your
mouse from the top of a block of flats. You can't have
everything.
2) Use your growing pile to stand on if you're a shortie like me.
Much cheaper than splashing out on a stepladder.
Reach those awkward-to-get-to high shelves in an instant. Only thing is, you'd have to wait a few years before you could paint the ceilings.
I hope these suggestions prove useful to other paupers like myself.
Lisa Cotton, Southampton Excellent suggestions, Lisa. We'll be putting them into practice here in the Amiga Format offices where we have a lack of mouse mats, but a surfeit of high shelves.
ANOTHER IDEA Four months ago I returned to the UK after spending quite a few years overseas, courtesy of HM Forces. I've been a subscriber to AF on and off (Off? Off?
Why off? - Ed) for quite a while. Being the good little boy that l am (snigger, snigger) I've made back-ups of my Coverdisks, mainly productivity software, but occasionally the games, too.
To make the disks more findable in their respective disk boxes, once a month I would take the magazine down to my local colour photocopying service and copy the front cover. Back home I would cut out the Coverdisk label and stick it on the respective back-up disk.
Now back in the UK, I cannot do this due to copyright law, at least I haven't found anywhere that will do it for me. So, and now to the nitty gritty, how about adding a spare page to the magazine so that those of us who wish to can make our back-ups more presentable? I say a spare page because every time I've wanted to cut something out of the mag, there's always been something on the other side that I've wanted to keep.
Here's hoping you hear my plea... G S Gardiner, Lincoln What a good idea. And why didn't we think of it. While we aren't likely lo print a spare page, we will grant you, and anyone else who wants to follow your back-up labelling system, permission to make one (and only one) colour photocopy of just the disk label part of the cover of this, and any other issue of Amiga Format. Take this page to your local photocopy shop, show them this, and they should be happy to make a copy for you.
DREAM THEME Over Christmas I was watching Movies, Games and Videos on television and I saw part of an item about how computer games are designed and written. The game they were showing was about how to build and run a theme park with rides and attractions to compete with other theme parks for business. It looked a bit like Sim City.
What I would like to know is whether this game will be available for the Amiga and what it is called, because I missed part of the program.
P Crompton, Woodley The game you are referring to is Theme Park from ace Amiga coders Bullfrog. By now you probably know all about it, since it is the subject of this month's Next Big Thing on page 47 of this very issue.
If you look back to the CO32 supplement given away with Issue 52 of Amiga Format, you'll find an early mention of the game, and, better still, you can play an exclusive demo which will be on the cover of next month's Amiga Format.
LOST VIKING SAGA l would like to right a wrong that a lot of ex-Deja Vu programmers have noticed.
In your Christmas 1994 Buyers' Guide (AF55) supplement you informed thousands of Amiga owners that the game The Viking Saga was still available from Deja Vu Licenceware.
It is now more than six months since Deja Vu closed, leaving many programmers without payment for the software they had painstakingly created. However, The Viking Saga is now available from NBS, 1 Chain Lane, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 5QA.
My faith in your research abilities would be restored by a nice big review of The Viking Saga and details of where to get it.
The reason I know all this is because I am that unpaid programmer, who spent six long months writing The Viking Saga. Wouldn't it be an idea for a leading magazine like Amiga Format to take up the banner of people like myself who otherwise have no redress from faceless organisations.
Lee Bamber, Wigan We are happy to take up the banner of anyone in the Amiga world who is being oppressed by the forces of evil. It's sometimes difficult to know what we can do. But in this case, while we aren't doing that nice big review you hoped for, tie are happy to give The Viking Saga a free plug in the letters pages, and tell people where to get it.
RADIO AMIGAGA 1 have recently purchased an Amiga 1200, and I think it’s without doubt a very powerful machine. But one very annoying thing is the humming sound from my radio whenever my Amiga is switched on. Is there any solution to my problem without having to fork out mindless amounts of cash?
