This also allows Beate Uhse access to the Amiga’s hardware technology so they can develop their Cybersex system! It is also rumoured that Samsung (or whoever it turns out to be) will then chuck out a load of third-party Amiga licences so there’ll be loads of cheap Amiga clones on the market. Which isn’t actually such a bad thing: the cheaper the machine, the more it sells and the bigger the user-base. But remember: these are purely rumours - we expect full details to be released very soon, so next month AF will have an in-depth news story explaining exactly what’s happening to Commodore and the Amiga. In the meantime, one of the more interesting suggestions is that the Amiga’s advanced technology makes it an extremely viable proposition as a set-top box. The set-top box is the holy grail of several companies aiming to corner the home entertainment market. The premise is this: you have a powerful computer sitting on top of the family gogglebox, which then plugs into the cable TV network. This machine then acts as a terminal allowing you to download information, games or movies, interact with live quiz shows, order flights or cinema tickets, go teleshopping... the possibilities are limited only by the power of the set-top box and the amount of data the fibre optic information superhighway will be able to handle. With this in mind, suddenly the Amiga looks an intriguing proposition: it’s powerful and upgradeable, allowing users to install whatever add-ons might become available in the future. It’s multi-tasking, so it can access several parts of the network at the same time. It’s better suited to working with genlock technology, than say a PC, which means it’s ideal for adding icons, menus or graphics over the I top of broadcast video footage. And, of course, Commodore are already ahead of the field with MPEG decoding, which is vital for downloading full motion video over the cable network. All it now needs is a built-in CD drive so it can play audio Cds and MPEG Digital Video discs.

Another month, another Amiga Format. Steve Jarratt takes a few moments to reflect on the things that helped shape the last 30 days... As I write this, the promised resolution of Commodore’s impending purchase has still failed to materialise. Of course, the absence of hard fact simply means that the rumour mill is running on overtime. At the moment, there are several very plausible theories doing the rounds... Odds-on favourite at the moment is Korean company, Samsung, as the saviour of Commodore, although another bright spark reckons it is Commodore who have bought a 51 per cent stake of
Samsung!
Either way, no sooner do they get a look-in than the gossip-mongers suggest that Samsung, too, are in financial difficulty and have appropriated the help of some German company called Beate Uhse (never heard of ’em) in order to finalise the deal.
This also allows Beate Uhse access to the Amiga’s hardware technology so they can develop their Cybersex system!
It is also rumoured that Samsung (or whoever it turns out to be) will then chuck out a load of third-party Amiga licences so there’ll be loads of cheap Amiga clones on the market. Which isn’t actually such a bad thing: the cheaper the machine, the more it sells and the bigger the user-base.
But remember: these are purely rumours - we expect full details to be released very soon, so next month AF will have an in-depth news story explaining exactly what’s happening to Commodore and the Amiga.
In the meantime, one of the more interesting suggestions is that the Amiga’s advanced technology makes it an extremely viable proposition as a set-top box.
The set-top box is the holy grail of several companies aiming to corner the home entertainment market. The premise is this: you have a powerful computer sitting on top of the family gogglebox, which then plugs into the cable TV network. This machine then acts as a terminal allowing you to download information, games or movies, interact with live quiz shows, order flights or cinema tickets, go teleshopping... the possibilities are limited only by the power of the set-top box and the amount of data the fibre optic information superhighway will be able to handle.
With this in mind, suddenly the Amiga looks an intriguing proposition: it’s powerful and upgradeable, allowing users to install whatever add-ons might become available in the future. It’s multi-tasking, so it can access several parts of the network at the same time. It’s better suited to working with genlock technology, than say a PC, which means it’s ideal for adding icons, menus or graphics over the I top of broadcast video footage.
And, of course, Commodore are already ahead of the field with MPEG decoding, which is vital for downloading full motion video over the cable network.
All it now needs is a built-in CD drive so it can play audio Cds and MPEG Digital Video discs.
Slap it all in a sexy black box, chuck in a smart laptop infra-red controller with keyboard - and away we go.
It all makes perfect sense, and it’s a darn sight more preferable than the other rumour which was that the entire buy-out had fallen through. We can but wait and see... Reports of Commodore's death may have been exaggerated, but life for the Amiga continues as normal with not one, but two, separate companies about to produce CD-ROM drives for the A1200 (news, page 16). Both ZCL and Silica have released details of their planned CD drives - both of which will run CD32 games, and neither of which has any MPEG-based FMV support whatsoever.
One only has to look to the PC and Mac markets to see what effect the shiny disc has had on the software - multimedia applications, sprawling arcade adventures, rendered video clips, hours of sampled speech and so on. And neither system has FMV support to any noticeable degree; they both will eventually, but at a price. The important thing is that they have access to all this data - now.
Only when the Amiga has a CD-ROM will software be written for it, and only once a decent user base is installed can software houses even think about converting their PC or Mac games to the Amiga CD-ROM.
I can fully ' appreciate Commodore’s reticence to make a CD drive that doesn’t have FMV support, but the Amiga simply cannot afford to be seen without access to CD technology. Let’s just hope it’s not already too late... Babylon 5, then? What a stonker! OK, so the acting’s not up to much and Thunderbirds has stronger plots, but the computer graphic effects are nothing short of spectacular.
Freed of the limitations of models and bluescreen motion control, Foundation Imaging provide us with amazing scenes of interstellar dogfights, with long tracking shots from deep space right into the docking bay of the B5 spacestation. I just hope it doesn’t go the way of Baltlestar Galactica, where the expensive special effects (like the Colonial Vipers taking off) were used over and over (and over) again... NewTek’s Video Toaster technology certainly has shown its mettle, with SeaQuest DSV, Babylon 5, The X-Files (currently showing on Sky TV) and the up-and-coming Robocop series to its
credit. Now, with the news that LightWave is being unbundled (see news story, page 18), anyone with a powerful Amiga, plenty of memory, a hard drive, a couple of hundred quid and endless patience can take on Ron Thornton at his own game... ® Experience the thrill of playing in the world's premier golfing evenf.You must get every detail spot-on to keep up with the calibre of players you'll be going round with.

To get ClariSSA up and running, boot up your Amiga using a copy of your Workbench disk and then insert the ClariSSA Coverdisk into your Amiga's disk drive. Double click on the ClariSSA disk icon and then locate the ClariSSA program icon and double click on it.
After a few moments of disk access, a window will appear asking you to enter your name and address. Enter these details and then click on the OK gadget and your copy of ClariSSA will be personalised. After a few more seconds' disk access, your personal identification number will be displayed - just click on the OK gadget to skip this bit and ClariSSA will finally load into memory.
1 If there’s one area of Amiga graphics that is most likely to cause the jaws of Mac and PC owners to drop, it has to be animation. The Amiga has always been a great exponent of this Ifascinating art form - indeed, you’ll find Amigas being used to train animators at Disney and even to produce broadcast quality animations in movie and television studios around the world.
If you’ve ever tried creating your own animation in a program like Dpaint IV, you’ll already be aware that the speed these packages play back your sequences isn’t quite up to the full 25 frames per second required for smooth animation; the results just look jerky. And there’s little you can do about the problem - unless you’ve got ProDAD’s ClariSSA loaded into your Amiga!
ClariSSA is a powerful utility that enables you to increase the speed of any standard IFF ANIM format animation so that it runs at the full 25fps required to achieve the illusion of smooth movement. ClariSSA achieves this by converting the IFF ANIM file to its own ‘SSA’ animation file format (short for Super Smooth Animation), which is faster than the ANIM format and more compact too. Simply run your IFF animations through ClariSSA and not only will it allow you to convert the files to SSA format, but you can also apply fade, flash and colour cycling effects as well.
With ClariSSA you can show all manner of animated sequences, from rendered films to spinning logos. But whatever you create, we want to see it! Send your animations in to Amiga Format - we'll put the best ones on our cover disk!
Animation, and so on. Running along the bottom of this window there should be five gadgets (not including the Cancel gadget). These gadgets enable you to select which of ClariSSA"s memory buffers the animation will be loaded into. On this particular occasion, click on the Source_A gadget - this will tell ClariSSA to load the animation into buffer A. prompting you to select an animation to load.
Within ClariSSA, ProDAD have very kindly provided a demonstration sequence called ‘SSADemoAnim’. Click on this filename and then click on the Load gadget and a window will appear containing useful information about the animation, such as the number of frames, the screen mode, how much memory is needed to hold the clartSSB 1.1 23.82.93 Copyright © 1992,93 pro&RD, Rll Rights Reserv Fraa 1572184 14882848 ?

looks! As always, the best way to get to grips with a program as complex as ClariSSA is to just use it.
We’ll start by loading an animation into ClariSSA.

_J Support 2-I5J background V 2-Mon i torsysten Animation sequences are held internally using ClariSSA's five memory buffers. The 'Source' buffers are used for temporary storage: only the main Master buffer can actually be used to display your animation.
With the animation loaded into memory, let’s start by changing the format of the animation so that it’s suitable for display by ClariSSA. All ClariSSA SSA animations are displayed in Interlace mode so the first thing we should do is to convert the animation to interlace mode if it isn’t already interlaced. To do this, move the mouse pointer to the tools window in the middle of the screen and click on the Change Anim Format gadget. The window contents should then change and you’ll be presented with three new gadgets: Format, Make LACE and AGA-DCTV.
The Make LACE gadget simply changes the screen mode of your animation so that it is interlaced. The AGA-DCTV option might also be useful to you if you have a Digital Creations DCTV colour board as it can be used to convert DCTV animations to AGA format for display on an A1200 or A4000. For the meantime, however, we’ll skip both of these options and go to the Format option.
Click on the Format gadget and a window will appear asking you to select a source animation. As we’ve only got one animation loaded into memory, only a single gadget will be displayed labelled Source_A. Click on this gadget.
The ClaiiSSA Format requester then appears wiiich can be used to alter the view7 mode of your animation, how7 manv colours it uses and whether Q| Master f V Fruxie position 1 ¦Jey inning of range 1 End of range 1 IS Cance I Edit it runs in overscan or not. Our animation is already in interlace mode so there’s no point in reselecting this. Instead, let’s knock up the number of colours that the animation uses from a measly four colours to a slightly more impressive
16. Once you’ve selected 16-colour mode, click on the OK gadget
to continue.
To stop you from making a complete pig’s ear of the conversion, ClariSSA will then check to make sure that this is exactly what you want to do by displaying a security request. Click on the OK gadget and the conversion process will start.
While the animation is being converted, you should see a little white rectangle in the top Project window move slowly across the screen from left to right - think of it as a progress meter.
Imow we've got that bit out of the way, you should now have what ClariSSA calls a Master animation in SSA format. If you look closely at the status box in the right hand side of the Project window, you’ll notice that ClariSSA is now displaying all sorts of useful information about our new animation - the number of frames (this should read 439) and the total size of the animation (around 28IK) and so on.
Let’s take a look at what we’ve got so far - move the mouse pointer up to the Project window and click on the play gadget. Pretty impressive, eh!
If all went well, you should now be watching a very impressive (not to mention smooth) demonstration animation advertising ProDAD’s other animation product, Adorage (OK, so it’s a gratuitous plug but, hey, it’s an impressive animation!).
You can view any frame of the animation easily by using the scroll bar in the top of the ClariSSA window. Just click and hold the left mouse button while the pointer is on the bar and the image at that position will be displayed. To return to the ClariSSA screen simply release the mouse button.
Continued overleaf CLARISSA EFFECTS Now that we've managed to produce our own SSA animation, let's take a look at what other features ClariSSA has to offer... Potentially one of the most useful is the ability to employ a different palette for every frame of an animation. This is something that is quite unique to ProDAD's SSA format - IFF ANIM files can only have a single, global palette. What this essentially gives you is a far greater level of flexibility when designing your animations as you're no longer restricted to a fixed palette - colour changes can be used to impressive effect.
COLOUR CYCLE Cycles the colours within an animation in much the same way as Dpaint or Brilliance.
ClariSSA gives you full control over which colours are cycled and in what direction.
COLOUR CHAOS If you want to add a truly psychedelic effect to your animations then this is the function for you. Colour Chaos produces weird random colour swaps.
COLOUR FLASH Potentially the most useful of the colour functions. Colour Flash produces short flashes of colour similar to lightning.
COLOUR SEQUENCE The Colour Sequence function is basically an extended version of the Colour Cycling function that can be used to create colour progressions within an animation.
3 COLOUR SEQUENCE Like Colour Sequence, but you can set a third colour within the normal progression range.
MULTI COLOUR FADE Can be used to fade an animation in or out.
Every single colour within your animation will be affected by this function.
SINGLE COLOUR FADE Like Multi Colour Fade but this function only fades a single, user selected colour.
STROBOSCOPE Like its name suggests, the Stroboscope function produces a regular strobe-like flashing effect which is just the ticket if you want to put your animations to music.
Let's put this powerful feature to use. Move the mouse pointer down to the tools window and click on the Return gadget if the Change Animation Format requester is still being displayed. Once you're back to the main page, click on the 'Colour' gadget and a whole bunch of new gadgets should appear. Each of these gadgets gives you direct access to a host of special colour effects which can automatically generate a variety of colour transformations.
The list on the right explains what you can expect from each one.

Once it has loaded, go back to the main page and click on the Edit button and you should see a whole new array of gadgets appear before your very eyes. These are the range controls that allow you to define a range (a subset, if you like) of frames within an animation. Frames come in jolly handy when you want a ClariSSA effect to be applied to only a small section of an animation - all you do is to define the section of frames as a range and apply the effect to it. Clever eh?
PROJECT WINDOW The range is displayed by a white bar underneath the scroll bar in the Project window at the top of the screen. The whole bar will be white if you haven't already defined a range, as the default range covers the entire animation (hence the reason why ClariSSA's effects are performed on all frames within an animation).
Our fade should really take place over the first quarter of the animation, so let's create a range. Click on the Goto Frame button and enter a value of 100 (which is roughly a quarter of the way through the sequence). You can position the current frame using the top scroll bar if you like.
Now click on Set Range End. You will see the range marker change to highlight the current range. Once you've defined the range, go back and apply a new single colour fade to the animation and then turn off the range by selecting Full Range from the Edit pull down menu. Finally, click on the Play gadget to view your new animation.

Rod 188 J OK You can have your scene fade in from any colour
you like - just tell ClariSSA which one you want.
For this sake of this tutorial, let's try a simple fade in from black. Click on the Single Colour Fade gadget and a requester will pop up asking you whether you wish to fade in or out. These two gadgets obviously control the direction of the fade - fading in will start the animation with the fade colour completely faded out and will then increase its brightness until it is displayed in its original colour. This function sounds good so click on the Fade IN gadget.
The screen should then change and you'll be presented with a colour selector asking you to click on the fade colour - that is, the colour which is to be faded.
For this particular example, click on the first colour (which should be white) and then click on the OK gadget. You'll then be asked to select the reference colour for processing. Don't worry - this isn't as complicated as it sounds. For the meantime, however, click on the Reference Black gadget and ClariSSA will simply fade the selected colour to black. Before processing begins, though.

Once all 436 frames have been processed, click on the play gadget and you should see the background colour of the animation smoothly change from black to white. There's one big problem, however - the fade takes the entire duration of the animation to complete which essentially means that by the time the selected colour has been faded in, the animation has run its course!
Hardly a particularly useable effect.
The answer, of course, lies in ranges. In order to demonstrate ranges, however, you'll need to reload the demonstration animation (the version we've been using up to now is so heavily modiEngland's defeat at the hands of the Dutch was a bitter pill to swallow, so we've got an exclusive rematch for you.

The World Cup is upon us once again and who are we to ignore this great footballfest? This month, we’ve got an exclusive demo of Audiogenic’s sharp- shooting Wembley International Soccer and a level of the devilishly tricky insect-blasting shoot-em-up Apidya, snapped up for re-release by Wakefield- based softies Team 17.
Wembley International Soccer is a one-player AGA-only demo (the game is being released on A1200 and CD32 only) and you’re in charge of the England team, taking on the might of the Dutch doggers in a four minute match. Press FI and the game automatically goes into a one-player game. If the scores are level at the end of the game, you go straight into a penalty competition to setde the issue. When the match is over, the computer teams play each other - when you want a rematch, simply re-boot the machine, and off you go again.
The controls may initially seem a bit confusing but fear not; with a bit of practice you can initiate some intricate passing manoeuvres and blast long range howitzers until your heart’s content. Wembley International Soccer enables you to play a variety of soccer styles - if you want to play a one-touch passing game or bypass the midfield with long balls, you can. The full version (out now) provides detailed tactical set-ups which allow you to tailor formations to your particular needs.
There are two pitch views to choose from, the classic Kick Off-style top-down and a John Bames- type side-view. You can toggle between these at any time using the V button. The side view offers greater scope for passing and most find it the preferable option (well we do, anyway). The full version is now available for £25.99. Continued overleaf 4 USING A ONE-BUTTON JOYSTICK Shooting - when you want to shoot at goal, and inevitably you will, hold down the fire button for about half a second, aim the directional arrow and then release.
Occasionally, a player who is in a good position to receive a pass will appear in a window.
A short tap on the button will do the trick.
To change the player in the window, centre the joystick, hold down the fire button and then point the joystick to the player you wish to pass to before releasing the button.
LUCKY FOLK WITH A CD32 CONTROLLER Yellow button - switches the view of the pitch from top-down to side-view and vice-versa.
Blue button - When a player appears in a window, tap this button and the ball will go straight to him.
Green button - use this to the player in the window. Press, direct the pad, then release.
Red button - pass, kick, head, shoot. You can also use this for one-touch passing by pressing before the ball has reached a player.
NOTE: Apidya is a 1Mb demo. If you have trouble loading it on an AGA machine, disable the CPU caches and boot from the enhanced chip set.
Insects are everywhere. What do you do? Flap at them with an old rolled-up newspaper?
Or do you miraculously transmetamorpho- size (eh?) Into a bee with an almost ridiculous amount of fire power and blow them into next door’s garden? If the latter sounds like more fun then you will find Apidya a really green- fingered blast. This old Blue Byte classic has been snapped up by Team 17 and and we’ve got the first level for you, end-of-level bosses ‘n’ all. Tackle all manner of garden pests including moles, butterflies, crickets and other things we don’t even know the name of.
And as you destroy these common-or-garden pests, red flower symbols appear. You automatically pick up the symbols by flying over them and this will enable you to boost your firepower considerably. Check the weapons panel at the bottom of the screen and when the icons turn red, smack the spacebar and hey presto, you can do more damage than Aian Titchmarsh with a barrel of Agent Orange. If you’ve got a joypad, the extra weaponry can be accessed from the pad itself. The power ups include Speed Up which (not surprisingly) accelerates the bee’s movements, Spread Shots which fire three
light-swords at the same time and Lightning which releases a powerful blast.
There is also a Drone power up - this little chap is a smaller insect who automatically follows the bee’s every move, simultaneously firing weapons and deflecting the enemies’ shots, thereby protecting the big feller.
The full version has five incredibly enjoyable, if somewhat tricky levels and you can blast away in simultaneous two-player mode - although one person has to be a small droney-type creature.
Apidya is available from Team 17 (0924 291867) for the bargain price of just £10.99. CD “Trouser-wettingly fantastic... This is the closest an Amiga owner is going to get to owning a high-spec arcade Imachine” -The On Penonnrte ri Metrnnolitan Wharf. WaoDina Wall. London El 9SS The Promise Fulfilled lndi Direct's new Zappo CD-ROM drive - which we'll have exclusively for review next issue. Remember, you saw it here first... ‘hhs: wmm ail order giant lndi Direct have stepped in to offer A1200 owners a fully CD32 compatible CD-ROM drive several months ahead of the UK launch of Commodore’s eagerly
awaited CD1200 machine.
Indi’s new Zappo CD-ROM drive, which goes on sale on July 1st for just £199.95, uses a double speed, multi-session Sony CDU33A drive offering maximum data transfer rates of 300K per second.
The drive, which is loaded via a retractable tray rather than the flip-top lid employed by Commodore’s CD1200, is fully PhotoCD compatible and will also play standard audio, CD+G music Cds and Graphic Cds.
Possibly the drive's most important feature, however, is its high level of compatibility with existing CD32 and CDTV software. This is especially impressive when you consider that, unlike Commodore’s drive, the Zappo drive does not have the benefit of the CD32’s Akiko chip. Instead, the functions of Akiko are emulated entirely through software.
“We’ve tested just about every CD32 title we could find, and only one failed to work with the drive. Even that required just a tiny software fix.
We even tried Psygnosis’ Microcosm which makes extensive use of the Akiko chip, and it worked perfectly,” claims Nigel Spires, one of the team responsible for the drive’s development.
Lndi have also managed to avoid the nuisance of having to upgrade the A1200 to Kickstart 3.1, a task that owners of Commodore’s drive will have to undertake before the drive will even be recognised by the A1200. “All the device drivers required to drive the unit are held in ROM inside the drive and so our drive can be plugged in and used immediately. It truly is a plug in and go product,” enthuses Indi’s MD, Don Carter.
Commodore’s own A1200 drive has been criticised for tying up the A1200’s trapdoor connector, rendering other trapdoor expansions such as accelerator cards and memory expansions virtually useless. Indi’s CD-ROM drive, on the other hand, connects to the A1200 through the PCMCIA port which not only leaves the trapdoor slot free for further expansion, but also makes the drive very easy to fit.
Also new from lndi is the Zappo Smart Stor Plus, an enhanced version of the Smart Stor reviewed on page 121 of this issue. Like the Smart Stor, the Smart Stor Plus is an external hard drive for the A600 and A1200 which easily connects to either machine via the PCMCIA port. The Smart Stor Plus, however, uses cheaper 3.5-inch IDE hard drives and is therefore available in sizes ranging from 130 to 340Mb from £249.99. Full details are available from lndi on 0543 419999.

IT'S SHOW TIME (SOON) The Future Entertainment Show returns to Earls Court 2, London, in the last week of October with a new line-up of events that promise to make it an unmissable occasion for all Amiga owners.
In particular, at the heart of the show will be an Amiga theatre organised by our very own editor Steve Jarratt, where you can meet the magazine writers, as well as leading .Amiga programmers and key industry figures, and quiz them on the future of the Amiga and ‘interactive entertainment’ in general. Whatever you want to find out about - VR, the Internet, multimedia, CD-ROM or Full-Motion Video - you’ll be able to.
The Show will feature special areas set aside for you to see and try the very latest in CD multimedia software and Personal Productivity, and there will be a massive Games Arcade where you can try out all the Christmas releases on all the major games formats, as well as the Amiga.
And what’s more, if you want to ‘shop ’till you drop’, you’ll be able to pick up a few pre-Christmas bargains or buy stuff that you simply can’t get anywhere else - and that alone should pay for your entry.
The Show runs over five days, from Wednesday October 26th to Sunday October 30th, and it’s been timed to coincide with the half-term holidays to make it a real family day out. Tickets cost £6 in advance or £7 on the day.

F Recently I had a call from a desperate Amiga user who was having problems with a particular piece of software. He had asked his dealer for help but was given none, only the phone number of the UK distributor. He asked the distributor for help but was given none, only my phone number, I didn't have a clue as the problem was to do with using the software with a particular piece of hardware, and although I owned the software I knew nothing about the hardware he was using.
So there was only one thing left to do: call the people who manufacture the software and or the people who manufacture the hardware. Great. One was in Germany, the other in the USA.
Even before you dial you suspect you know what's going to happen. Company A is going to say the problem lies with Company B's hardware; Company B is going to say it is Company A's software that is at fault. One of them may be right, but neither wants to help because in their opinion their product is perfect, so it is SEP - Somebody Else's Problem.
Often the problem is more complex than a simple conflict between two products; it may be a lack of cooperation between a handful of products, including the Amiga itself. Then who do you turn to? Well, in an ideal world it should be your dealer. In an ideal world, it would be the responsibility of that shop to help you get everything back up and running.
Alas, in this back-stabbing, undercutting industry, customer loyalty is almost non-existent. People will instinctively buy their kit from whoever is selling it the cheapest. And dealers working with narrow profit margins don't really want anything to do with after-sales support: half an hour on the phone and that's their profit gone. A short-sighted attitude, maybe, but one that is prevalent in the Amiga sector of this industry.
The aforementioned customer loyalty is the key. I used to work in a Butchers (don't laugh) and when all customers had to do was cross the road if they didn't get the service they wanted, I had to bend over backwards to accommodate them. 1 had to cut chops specially for them, smile a lot, carry their bags to the car, even deliver stuff on my way home from work. The point here is that none of this was considered to be special service. All customers were treated this way. And while some of our prices were higher than over the road, people were prepared to pay that bit extra provided I made them
feel special, like they were my best customer.
There's no doubt that personal service has taken a bashing in this country over the past 10 years or so. During the consumer boom goods tended to sell themselves, so shop managers and assistants became lazy. They have got used to just 'shifting boxes'. Providing a personal service has become too much like hard work.
So is there anything you can do about it? You bet there is!
Vote with your pocket. No matter where you shop for your Amiga kit, ask beforehand about the kind of technical support you can expect. And if you don't get the answers you want to hear, don't be shy, ask to speak to the person in charge and explain to them that you are going elsewhere to buy your kit because you want better after-sales support. If everyone does this, managers and owners have to take notice.
But the most important thing is that you MUST go elsewhere if you are unhappy. It is no good complaining and then buying the kit from them anyway because it is a few pounds cheaper than everywhere else. All this will do is exacerbate the problem. There are many dealers who provide excellent aftersales service, although a lot of them tend to show customers the same kind of loyalty that customers show them - regular customers get better treatment. You are letting them get away with this. And only you can change their attitudes.
For some years now you have been sending out signals to computer retailers that cheapest is best, that nothing else matters except price. If you want this to change, if you want better service and support, you are going to have to stop complaining to magazines about it and start demanding it from your dealer,

I ulure PUBLISHING ¦P8 he one difficult thing about writing this column, I mused as I sat incarcerated on a tube train recently, is 8 the lead time. OK, there's also the fact that there isn't a portable Amiga yet, so I couldn't make good use of the dead time either, but the lead time is a bind.
You see, as I write this, the Amiga still hasn't been taken up by Samsung... whoops! By anybody. It would be easy enough to pile into an amusing little sweepstake at this moment. I could detail all the names that have been mentioned as potential suitors, I could give Prix De L'Arc de Triomphe-like odds and you would be amused and informed.
But what happens when this issue of the UK's favourite computer magazine issue hits the shelves with the news that Rupert Murdoch... whoops! Someone has bought our pride and joy. Or maybe Sony or Amstrad. Or what if Philips piles in? Or maybe Acer? I'd look like the man who predicted that the Tories would win the European elections hands down. So I won't do that.
GamePro magazine in the United States is advertising the Amiga CD32 as the 'machine that conquered Europe'. The advert also carries an endorsement saying that CD32 is the hardware of the year over 3DO and Jaguar. The irony is that for the first time in years, the name Amiga has made an impact on the 'minds' of the American games-playing public with (a) a console and (b) at a time when the fortunes of the format are hanging in the balance.
Still, it's not as ironic as the fact that the other big name at the moment is Atari and its Jaguar (albeit with a rip-off, sorry upgrade, of an ancient arcade game in Tempest 2000).
The circularity of history is a subject to ponder on when you've got nothing better to do - such as when you're sitting on a tube train listening to people slowly going mad.
Talking of people going slowly mad... there's the Internet.
Firstly, cheers for all the E-mail I've been getting from people. For the most part, the comments have been fascinating.
I'm sorry if I've not replied to everyone as yet. I'm also sorry that I can't reply to the heavily technical questions, but that's Mr Veitch's job.
Personally I would love to see everybody using E-mail.
As a device for getting information and opinion from one source to another, it's unbeatable. There are also companies now setting up that will enable you to send faxes in the US, for the price of a local phone call. Essentially, you send your E-mail message to the company or companies (for the price of your local Internet hook-up), and they then whisk it into the fax machines of individuals or companies.
This opens up a whole new level of interaction, at a reasonable cost, for a whole bunch of people who would never normally get the chance to have themselves taken seriously by getting a fax message in all of its hi-techness.
Constructive anarchy - the Net - is a fine tool in the hands of the right people.
What isn't too cool is the number of bumbling old whingers who are now starting to rant on, in the style but without the charm of Colonel Blimp, about how the Internet, isn't the same as it once was. "Oh Gawd," they intone (people like this always 'intone') "all these newies are taking over the Net and using new phrases, not playing by the rules, asking questions we've all asked years ago, and not wiping their feet or doffing their caps to us Mavens". Tough boys, tough. See you next month.
NewTek have decided to ‘unbundle’ their LightWave 3D software v3.2 from the Video Toaster technology. Previously only available as part of the $ 2,000 hardware software package, LightWave has long been regarded as one of the best 3D rendering packages available - but has been dependant on running in conjunction with the Toaster circuitry.
A separate software solution was released a few months ago in the shape of LightRave, which used a hardware dongle to fool LightWave into thinking it was running on a full Toaster set-up.
However, NewTek have now made LightWave available as a stand-alone program, which costs $ 695 in the US - the UK PAL version will probably come in for a shade under £600 - but it’s still £200 cheaper than LightRave.
LightWave 3D needs an Amiga with 8Mb RAM, Workbench 2.04 or above - and a hard drive, since the original took up 110Mb of code, and came on 45 disks!
NewTek haven’t yet decided how many dozen disks LightWave3.2will take up... Anyone tempted to lash out on NewTek’s renderer will be happy to know that the Glasgow-based 24 Bit Club provide a range of services for LightWave and Video Toaster users. Currendy in beta-test is The LightWave Collection, a mass of rendered images, 3D models and texture maps for use in LightWave productions.
The LightWave Collection Set 1 comes on 10 disks (a full 15Mb-worth when decompressed) and costs £29.95, including a manual with hint and tips on getting the most out of LightWave.
A sampler disk is also available for £3.95 so that you can gauge the quality of the collection. The disk contains seven files, including a rotating planet Earth file, a scene file of a T-Rex attacking a car (surprise, surprise) and textures for detailing the hulls of spaceships.
The 24 Bit Club provide a quarterly newsletter and offer an advice service to LightWave and Imagine users. They are currently compiling a demo tape of the best 3D demos from around the world and will shordy be selling copies of the book, Lightwave Organic Modelling.
The 24 Bit Club are contactable at: 6 Skirsa Square, Floor 1, Glasgow G23 5DW, or on their phone fax number: 041-946 2191, between 2.30 and 5.30pm.

Gordon Harwood Computers, the UK distributors for the Blizzard range of A1200 accelerators and RAM expansion boards, have announced the launch of the Blizzard A1230-11, a new cost effective 68030 accelerator for the A1200.
AMIGA'S DAD JOINS SCALA With the demise of Commodore International Ltd, Jeffrey S Porter - heralded as the father of the Amiga - has joined Scala. The former director of advanced technology at CIL is now the vice president of engineering at Scala, with an eye to interactive TV... ALL CHANGE First Computer Centre have changed the number of their Bulletin Board. It is now: 0532 311422.
The new board, which is available now for as little as £244.95, comes in two forms
- a low cost 40 Mhz version based around the ‘economy’ version of
the ’030, the 68EC030, or the slightly faster 50MHz board which
is based around the full 68030 complete with memory management
unit.
In tests carried out by Harwood, both boards managed to easily out perform the A4000 030 with the 50MHz board, in particular, running twice as fast as the A4000.
Sockets for the addition of either a PGA or PLCC maths co-processor, a real time clock, an integrated DMA port for the connection of an optional SCSI-II hard disk controller and a special ‘feature connector’ for future developments.
Although no add-ons are yet available for the board, Harwoods claim that both an MPEG decoder and even a CD32 compatibility board could eventually be released. For more information, give Gordon Harwoods a call on 0773 836781.
TALENT ALERT!
Simon Lillie is looking for talented Amiga musicians and demo writers to feature on a possible album to be released for later this year, or early next year. For more details call 0244 536718 or write to him at 10 Firbrook, Hawarden, Dee side, Cswyd CHS 3HH.
Both versions of the A1230-11 feature two standard SIMM sockets for the addition of fast RAM using either 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 or 32Mb SIMM modules. What’s more, the Blizzard allows you to mix SIMMs so the board can grow as and when your budget allows it.

Amiga Shopper’s July issue, also on sale now, has a 10-page round-up of every word- processors on the market, and can help you out of any Amiga problems with their Q&A pages and tutorials on everything from Comms, and Amiga DOS, to Video and programming in C and AMOS.
Here at Future Publishing we not only produce the biggest and best-selling Amiga magazine, Amiga Format, but we’ve got two strong sisters. One’s playful and fun, while the other’s more the serious and studious type; they’re called Amiga Power and Amiga Shopper, respectively (see pics above) and we thoroughly recommend them both.

Sensible Soccer International (reviewed this issue as part of
our special five-page footy feature, see page 45), Manchester
United Premier League Champions and the cash cow that is
Domark's Championship Manager series.
Soccer fans don't have it all their own way, though.
Audiogenic's arcade game Wembley Rugby League makes a strong showing at 15 and their cricket game is also clawing its way up the chart, moving up a respectable five places from 30 to 25. The only other new entry to this month's games chart is Gremlin's Utopia sequel K240.
There are more new entries in the volatile CD32 chart than in the main chart this month. Four new games - Striker, Fire And Ice, Zool 2 and Ultimate Body Blows completely knock out previous contenders like Microcosm and Total Carnage, while the A1200 chart sees only one new entry - a platform game called Soccer Kid which tells the tale of a footy mad youngster in search of the World Cup. Looks like we've come full circle, doesn't it?

If you own an Amiga, you must surely know by now that the thing it does best of all is moving pictures. That makes it great for games, but it also means that when you want to try something more creative, your obvious first step is to try your hand at animation.
Most of you will have a copy of Deluxe Paint, with which you can try out animation for yourself. It’s surprisingly simple. Now you also have ClariSSA, which will turn any animation or collection of separate pictures into a super-smooth animation. It’s real power-at-your- fingertips stuff. Perhaps what you might not have is an insight into how ‘real’ animation works - stuff like Walt Disney movies, the Oscar-winning The Wrong Trousers, or a really good game intro.
So in this article, we examine all the techniques that the professionals use and show you how simple they really are. We’ll explain all the technical terms, and even ask the experts to reveal how they do what they do. But let’s start with a little history... THE STORY OF ANIMATION Animation isn’t a new thing. It’s been around even longer than movies, but uses the same idea: that by running through a set of changing images at the rate of 10 or more a second, you can create the impression of flowing movement.
Animation started around 100 years ago in Paris, before photographic film was even invented, with sequences of hand-drawn slides fixed to a long leather belt drawn in front of a light source to project the images on to a screen.
The first film animations were Trickfilms, where objects were animated for adverts or primitive special effects. The first drawn animation, Emile Cohl’s Fantasmagorie, appeared in 1908, soon followed by Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo and Gertie The Dinosaur. McCay’s films were milestones in cinema animation, using characterisation and techniques such as looping and repeats for the first time. In Europe, the First World War steered the fledgling animation industry towards propaganda work, leaving the entertainment- orientated USA way ahead. Pat Sullivan and Otto Messmer came up with Felix The
Cat, while Max Fleischer developed Koko The Clown, Betty Boop and Popeye.
Ever wanted to know more about animation? Well, you have a copy of ClariSSA to help, and here's Gary Whiteley and Phil South to explain how you can become an Amiga animator.
Sound film duly arrived, making it possible to combine sound and vision into one coherent production. In 1928 Disney’s first synchronised sound film, Steamboat Willy, appeared and Disney went from strength to strength, turning out a string of classic animations such as Pinnochio (1939), Dumbo and Fantasia (both 1941).
Disney’s domination waned after a strike in 1941 and many animators struck out with new companies. Noted animator directors such as Tex Avery, Chuck Jones and Fritz Freleng developed new characters, including Bugs Bunny, Roadrunner and Daffy Duck, as well as many of the hilarious routines and gags which became standard cartoon material.
In the 1950s the growth of TV brought a wider audience for animators, though their budgets and production values inevitably suffered under TV’s commercial constraints. However, animation production continued apace and many innovative works were produced by animation giants like Norman McClaren, Len Lye and Oscar Fischinger - all of whom have contributed greatly to today’s animation styles.
In Britain, TV has created a wide market for cartoons and bodies like BBC2, Channel 4 and the British Film Institute have put a lot of money into quality productions. From Bob Godfrey’s Rhubarb And Custard through Richard William’s The Snowman to Nick Park’s Oscar-winner The Wrong Trousers, British animation has always been innovative.
THE DIGITAL AGE But what about computer animation? It began as early as the late 1950s, and includes James Whitney’s film Lapis. But it wasn’t until the 1980s, when fast, affordable computers became available, that serious 3D computer animation became a real possibility.
Inevitably, Disney had a hand in the proceedings, not only with experiments like Tron, but also because Disney Studios employed John Lasseter, one of the pioneers of characterisation in 3D computer animation. Lasseter later won awards for his work at Pixar, where he created films such as Red’s Dream, Tin Toy, Luxo Junior and Knick Knack.
In recent years we’ve seen films like The Lawnmower Man, several Star Treks and many TV and film productions making more use of computers. Techniques such as morphing have become commonplace and without computer animation, the films The Abyss, Jurassic Park and Terminator II just wouldn’t have been possible.
There’s now plenty of examples on TV which use the low-cost Amiga for generating animations, including Babylon 5, SeaQuest DSV and the soon-to-be- premiered Robocop, as well as Star Trek TNG and a host of pop videos and commercials.
WAYS AND MEANS In traditional animation there are lots of different ways of producing an animated image. Some techniques don’t even require a film or video camera on which to record the animation! Here’s an explanation of some of the main methods, though there are plenty others.
CEL ANIMATION is perhaps the most common method. Each frame is drawn on one or more sheets of clear acetate plastic (that’s the cel), the number of cels used for each frame depends on the complexity of the animation - there’s usually a cel for Continued overleaf READ UP ON THE BEST WAYS TO GET YOUR ANIMATIONS MOVING Two of the main source books for the majority of animators are by the Victorian photographer Eadweard Muybridge: The Human Figure In Motion and Animals In Motion.
These invaluable books contain a diverse range of time-lapse photographic sequences which depict both humans and animals in various forms of motion such as running, jumping, climbing, flying, and so on.
Professional animators frequently refer to these photographs in order to impart more realistic movement to their characters.
Once again, Preston Blair's Animation workbook comes to our aid. Packed with diagrams like this one, it makes it easy to see how many movements can be produced. Note how the body moves up and down during this walk cycle.
each character. The cels all have holes punched in to them to enable them to be accurately aligned under the camera. Each cel is first inked with the outline of the character which is being animated, and then painted on the reverse side to produce flat, smooth colours. The cels are then photographed one after another - usually positioned over some background artwork - to make the animation.
Most of the animations we are familiar with today are produced on cels, as are all the classics of the past - Disney, Warner Brothers and Hanna Barbera included.
MULTIPLANE is a variety of cel animation developed by Lotte Reiniger and at the Disney Studios. Instead of layering cels on top of a background, the foreground, midground and background cels are each kept several inches apart to give an enhanced illusion of depth and parallax movement.
MODEL animation is very painstaking and time-consuming because the movements in each frame have to be set by hand. And because these movements are often very buying from scratch, ImageFX offers better value, though isn't as easy to use as ADProlMorphPlus.
IMAGEMASTERRT £175.00 BlackBelt Systems via Amiga Centre Scotland (0896 870583).
A powerful program with many unique features.
Batch processing front-end software, which bypasses the need for Arexx scripts, are also available for ADPro - including MultiFrame and ProCONTROL.
PAPER animation is more difficult than cel work because the whole of each picture has to be put on a single sheet of paper, including the background and all of the characters. Early hand-drawn animations were usually produced on paper.
FLICKER BOOKS are DIY movie palaces.
Most kids (even big ones!) Have tried them out at some time in their lives. All they are is a series of small drawings made on the comer of a wad of cards, or the pages of a book, for example. When the pages are flicked through the fingers, the result is the illusion of movement - an animation.
Amiga animation is essentially an updated, electronic, version of the flicker book.
DIRECT-TO-FILM is a technique that dispenses with cameras entirely, working directly on the emulsion of unexposed, developed film, and is mostly used by experimental film makers.
By making scratches with sharp instruments, scraping off the emulsion, drawing lines and adding coloured inks where the emulsion has been scraped off, abstract and beautiful films can be produced. Some mesmerising examples of CDGKNRS THY and Z Words are broken into mouth positions representing vowels and consonants. Animators study the dialogue and use mouth shapes for each part of a word. This shows four positions from Preston Blair's book Animation.
PROCESSING SOFTWARE Image processing does just that - process images.
A good example would be the conversion of an image in one format (such as a 24-bit file) into another format (such as a JPEG compressed file), but conversions are just the start.
Images can be scaled, composited, compiled into animations, have effects applied and generally be messed about with to produce a whole new look.
Most image processing programs permit script-based batch processing so that whole sequences of images can be processed in one sitting. Like morphing, image processing requires a powerful Amiga system for top-quality work.
ART DEPARTMENT PROFESSIONAL v2.5 £199.95 ASDG via Meridian Software Distribution. Tel: 081-543 3500.
Probably still the Amiga's premier image processor, though it has close competition from ImageFX.

Like ADPro, this has a wide range of functions, though it does have features which ADPro users have to pay extra for including 'professional' converters (TIFF, TARGA) and morphing software. If you're MOUTH MOVEMENTS FOR SPEECH Top-class animators spend a lot of time getting their characters to speak properly, though most of the cheaper TV kids cartoons are rather less picky, because they are churned out quickly and with a low budget, so shortcuts are inevitable.
However fussy you are, you inevitably have to simplify mouth movements to several key positions.
When the animation plays, we generally accept that the mouth movements, though basic, represent the words that the character has to say. After all, most animations bear little resemblance to real life, so what does it matter if the mouth movements aren't quite right as Bugs Bunny once again winds up his old antagonist Yosemite Sam?
Small, good model work requires a great deal of skill and patience.
Models can be anything - from Plasticine to plastic dolls, animals to people - in fact, anything solid which can be moved around. Prime examples of Model animations are Nick Park’s brilliant films, including A Grand Day Out and The Wrong Trousers, and Serge Danot’s Magic Roundabout series.
SLEEPWALKER - THE ANIMATED INTRODUCTION To set the scene, we have a neat static background To show the boy asleep, the sheets move up and He then throws back the sheets and slides his legs to with 'Z's floating lazily up the screen. Simple. ML down and his fringe flaps. Subtle, but effective. The edge. This is quite a complex series of frames.
This technique were made by Norman McLaren and Len Lye. Other direct-to-film techniques include placing objects directly on to the film before exposure.
ROTOSCOPING is a technique used to trace live action footage and turn it into stylised animation. It was used in the Amiga game Prince Of Persia, where the animator took photos of his brother jumping around the house and then traced over them to produce a realistic sprite animation for the main character.

REAL 3D Classic. £99.95. By Activa.
From Activa UK.
Tel: 071-371 5241.
The original Real 3D was a firm favourite with some animators and still performs well, though without its bigger relative's modern refinements.
The images can either be traced on to cel or paper directly from a projection box, or can be electronically captured by digitiser and computer and then manipulated in a computer paint or animation program.
LIGHTWAVE 3D £TBA. By From NewTek.
Tel: 0101 913 228-8000 (USA).
The choice of many Amiga professionals in the US, and probably soon in Europe. Used in the creation of award-winning series such as Babylon 5 as well as the Robocop TV series. Part of the Video Toaster software, but soon to be available as a standalone (that is, no Toaster required) version.
CUT-OUT characters are much simpler to animate than cel animation because only a limited number of poses are generally required. Each cut-out is manipulated under the camera and their positions are recorded frame-by-frame on to film. Lots of the animations produced for very young viewers tend to use this method.
PIXELLATION is a technique which achieves unusual motion effects by moving real-life objects and or people around a frame at a time. Many of the sequences are pixellated in Mike Jittlov’s classic The Wizard Of Speed And Time.
ALADDIN 4D £213.99. By Adspec Programming.
From Hobbyte Computing. Tel: 0727 856005.

From Meridian Software Distribution.
Tel: 081-543 3500.
Caligari 24 offers good rendering, but lacks some of the refinements of other programs.
Caligari Broadcast goes a step further by including tools such as deformations, much improved functionality and better animation features, among others.
VISTAPRO £69.95 by Virtual Reality Labs.
From Meridian Software Distribution.
Tel: 081-543 3500.
Generates great-looking 3D landscapes (complete with clouds and trees) and IFF images for animation.
Popular with cyberpunk animators.
OTHER TECHNIQUES. There are many other traditional animation methods for an enterprising animator to employ. One of the most difficult is the pinboard, where thousands of closely-packed metal pins are moved in or out on the surface of the pinboard to make images built from shadows and light on the surface of the pinboard. In the hands of an expert the results of pinboard animation are absolutely stunning.
Oil paintings, natural objects (such as grains, sand, and rocks), landscapes, animals, toys, film equipment, kitchenware and whatever else you can imagine has either already been, or eventually will be, featured in animated films.
And then, of course, there is computer animation where most, if not all, of the work is produced using a computer and Continued overleaf 4 3D software lets you create solid models and then render and animate them. This image has been created using Real 3D 2.
3D computer animations are produced by building 3D models, setting up lights and cameras, and directing how the objects move around in a scene.
All this is done inside the computer. Then, by rendering a sequence of images and combining them into an animation, the results can be viewed in all their glory.
3D programs vary enormously in their approach and function, and all the programs listed have their good and bad points. Like most serious Amiga software, 3D programs benefit from large amounts of RAM, a hard drive and a fast Amiga (with FPU maths co-processor).
A display card and genlock are also handy, but for video work a specialised video recorder capable of single-frame recording (and a single frame controller such as Nucleus's SFC or Optonica's Simpatica) or a hard disk recorder (such as DPS's PAR) are essential.

One of the established 3D programs which has just got even better. Various upgrades are available to When he jumps out on to the dog, the poor pooch is drawn extremely flat to emphasise the action.
5 Likewise, his reaction is similarly extreme. It's better to overplay expressions - at least for a few frames.

4" 2D or 3D software. By whatever means, a sequence of frames is rendered or drawn and then either compiled directly as an animation for playback from the computer or laid off on to video tape or a digital recording medium.
Computer animation is still relatively new and, as computers become ever more powerful, we should expect to see ever more creative and functional software which can take us to the new worlds of virtual reality. Bring on the future!
VIDI AMIGA 24RT £299. BylFrom Rombo Limited. Tel: 0506 414631.
Identical to the 12RT, but with more video RAM for capturing full overscan images in Hires Interlace in 24- bit. Produces excellent quality grabs.
All Vidi digitisers have built-in animation features such as sequence editing and playback, sequence grabbing (not in real-time, and not in colour on some models) and some image processing functions. They all have composite and S-Video inputs and work with any Amiga (so long as it has enough memory).
VLAB YC 382 By MacroSystem. From Amiga Centre Scotland.
Tel: 089 687 583.
Vlab YC fits any 'big-box' Amiga, installing into a Zorro slot and accepts both composite and S-Video inputs. AmigaDOS 2.04 (or greater) is required and if the IFR (sequence grabber) is used you'd better have a hard drive on which to save the data. Vlab YC produces excellent grabs in up to 24-bit full overscan.
WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY But that’s enough background. Let’s find out what advice we can get from some of the top animators in the country. We’ve asked them what influences you should draw on, and for their tips on how you can become a good animator.
It’s worth pointing out to budding animators that the software industry is now crying out for good animators for everything from computer games to multimedia encyclopedias, so start practising now and you could soon be doing it for a living!
‘Big’ Craig was formerly an animator with Cosgrove Hall, of Dangermouse and Count Duckula fame, and is now at Ocean Software. “For complete stylisation I like Chuck Jones,” he says. ‘You know, the Road Runner stuff. And the stuff that’s very similar to it, like Tex Avery’s work, just because of the speed and versatility of it.
“It makes me laugh out loud - it’s the timing, and the throwaway ideas. There must have been an abundance of it in the late ’50s. It’s wonderful, like the one with the wolf being chased by Droopy, and it doesn’t matter where he goes, Droopy’s there. It’s just so surreal. I like that, where you think there’s no way that’s going to happen. I don’t like Disney’s stuff - it’s far USEFUL HARDWARE The most valuable piece of hardware any Amiga animator can have - beyond a well-equipped Amiga - is a video digitiser (Framegrabber). With a digitiser it is possible to capture images direct from a video
camera or VCR, though the VCR must have a perfect freeze-frame facility to produce clean grabs with a slow-scan digitiser.
A digitiser can be used to 'line test' paper or cel- based animations, capturing each image from the light-box with a rostrum-mounted video camera and then making a test animation to check that the motions are all correct. Alternatively, grabbed images can be rotoscoped and redrawn to produce life-like motion without too much preparatory work. Grabbed images can also be used for backgrounds and for compositing with 2D and 3D animation foregrounds.
There are many digitisers on the market, but the quality you get depends on the money you pay. If you want 'real-time' grabbing at 24-bit quality then be prepared to pay substantially more. Quality digitising also relies on RAM and processor speed. A sequence of grabs could occupy a lot of storage space, so a hard drive is a must for pro work, though hobbyists could probably make do with floppy disks.
VIDI AMIGA 12 £100. By From Rombo Limited. Tel: 0506 414631.
A slow scan HAM AGA digitiser suitable for hobbyists and non-professional work which produces good quality grabs from composite and S-Video sources.
VIDI AMIGA 12RT £199. BylFrom Rombo Limited. Tel: 0506 414631.
Featuring real-time grabbing in formats up to 24-bit (non-HiRes), the 12RT is an excellent fast scan digitiser similar to Vidi 12 but with much higher quality and more features.
Wouldn’t mind a job in their paint and trace department, and they gave me ajob”.
WATCHING THE WORLD Paul McGloughlan of Bullfrog doesn’t have an all-time favourite. “At the moment it’s Nick Park’s The Wrong Trousers. I thought that was quite amusing - not bad for a lump of clay. It’s labour intensive, but then most animation tends to be.
“I don’t really have any classics that I like. What I like about Nick Park’s stuff is his ability to get character into the material. You forget that you’re looking at putty, you really feel for the mad penguin, clever dog and the silly human, and I think the character comes through.
Too polished. I know everything’s got to be technically perfect, and some of their work is gorgeous, like the warmth that’s in drawings on 101 Dalmatians, but a lot of it leaves me cold.” Craig’s tip is go to life-drawing classes and to keep at it. “Watch people when they move. Expressions are funny. Blink a lot, and if you see someone doing a funny action, it’s like you see all the key frames.
You get a lot of ideas from that.
“If someone’s starting off, there’s very little in the way of courses available. I just started off as a graphic designer, then I went on to illustration, and I thought no, I want to make these move. And so I rather cheekily wrote to Cosgrove Hall saying I SETTLERS - THE STORY TOLD IN ANIMATED SEQUENCES Ihigh viewpoint and small animations (river, rabbit) helps set the scene as the knight rides through.
2 A snoozing cat is disturbed prior to the kids running into the scene, which helps to reinforce the activity.
3 The knight comes clumping into view. Note his blinking eyes and the horse's comical movement.
“Plasticine itself is a fairly clumsy, unpleasant sort of stuff and I like the way Nick Park gets around that.” Paul’s animation tip is keep it simple.
"Get the basics right. Don’t worry about getting to grips with software. Just learn to draw, study movement, study character, and try to concentrate on getting character into what you’re drawing.
“Don’t worry too much about the technical side of things, because that sort of thing is easy to pick up. For example, if you don’t know what a dog looks like, and how it works, there’s no way you can make it move like a dog. And likewise, if vou don’t know what happens to a face when it’s smiling, you won’t make a face smile properly. It’s all about deconstructing what you see and reconstructing it as animation.” SENSIBLE IDEAS Stoo at Sensible Software has a surprise favourite. “One film I did like, and this is really sad of me I know, is Fern Gully: The Last Rain Forest? I like that, and any
of the latest Disney stuff, particularly for the technical aspects, since they use computer graphics for some of the scenes.
“Computer animation? I like Psygnosis’ intros, using some of the Silicon Graphics machines. As well as the Babylon 5 stuff, all the sci-fi stuff, Star Trek. I don’t think I’ve got a favourite animator. I tend not to look at names, I just look at the end results.” Stoo’s tip is to take a structured approach. “Break things down into small tasks before you start. Work in sections, but keep an eye on the overall look. For instance, if you’re going to draw a man walking, study someone walking, and then maybe make a wire frame on screen, and finally concentrate on the detail.
“But it varies - if you were producing proper cartoon animation you’d draw the character and then animate him. With computers you normally have to work the basic structure first, and then put all the detail in. But most importantly, don’t be too ambitious on your first project. Don’t restrict yourself to drawing squares and circles all your life, but don’t draw the Babylon 5 station as your first task.” CHARACTER COUNTS 2D PAINT AND ANIMATION SOFTWARE Kevin Bulmer of DCD is also a fan of Wallace and Grommit, but he has a joint favourite too. “Either The Wrong Trousers by Nick Park, or
Knick-Knack by John Lasseter.
“It’s the characterisation, the fact that Lasseter is an animator, and he brings the whole history of animation to bear. He has a full understanding of it, and it’s something he’s really studied.
“What you find an awful lot, specifically with computer animation, is that people are just going through the motions and there’s no personality there.
They might have learned how to use the utilities, but it just doesn’t work properly.
“I’m a big fan of animation in general and one of my favourites is a chap called Bill Tytla. He worked at Disney, he was one of the original major animators, he did the Night On Bald Mountain sequence in Fantasia. For the time, his animation was phenomenal, and he’s a vastly underrated animator. Him and Fred Ward, two of the original Nine Old Men at Disney.” Kev’s animation tip is take care over what you’re doing. “Attention to detail is the best one. Avoid symmetry and pay attention to subtleties. Often an amateur animator will look at what a character needs to perform in a scene, and simply
do that. But there’s ancillary stuff that should be going on - his right hand’s picking a book up, but what are the fingers of his left hand doing? It’s a simple thing. It’s the sort of thing that Ray Harryhausen was an expert at, which is why he won the lifetime achievement award at the Oscars. Study what you like on video, frame-by-frame.” Continued overleaf Paint programs (many of which include extensive animation functions) are the mainstay of Amiga graphics. Many of the animations and characters seen in games, demos and videos have been created with these, and the paint programs can also
be used for video titling and for DTP work.

4- BRIEF ENCOUNTER Over at Gremlin Graphics, Aid Carleff s favourite is “Probably that Wallace and Grommit thing that was on just recently, The Wrong Trousers. And the one before that, Grand Day Out.
“I like Scooby Doo as well and Ren And Stimpy. I like Ren And Stimpy because it breaks all the rules. You can do anything with it that you can feasibly think of.” Aid belongs to the ‘you can’t really explain it’ school of animation, however he offers: “I don’t know if I’ve really got a tip, to be honest, Watch plenty of cartoons and eat plenty of carrots.” MAKING WAVES As a LightWave user, Millennium’s Steve Loughran admires much of the work produced using it. “Some of the Pixar stuff originally got me interested in animation,” he explains.
“I love some of the stuff done on Silicon Graphics workstations with Wavefront. All the top-notch people have their own individual fields, some people are better at human animation, and some people just get a good atmosphere.
“As we’re all LightWave users here, I must say Babylon 5 and Ron Thornton are my favourites. Did you know that Ron Thornton originally made all the models for PRODUCING GREAT ANIMATIONS WITH CLARISSA It's no coincidence that this feature appears at the same time as ProDAD's ClariSSA software is on the cover. ClariSSA is designed as an animator's tool - so how can it help you with your animation work?
Messy colour accidents happening after an image sequence has been exported from Vista or Imagine, for instance.
SSA animations can easily be edited with ClariSSA. If you have a few frames in the middle that you don't like, just clip them out. Or if you want a section of the animation to loop several times, just tell ClariSSA which frames to loop and they will be inserted into the SSA animation. If you find that your animation is a little too short, just use the DynAnimRecord function to lengthen it a bit. It's that easy!
ClariSSA can also interact with other software and grab frames as they are produced and compile them into an SSA animation - rather like a singleframe controller controls a video deck to record animations to tape. For instance, if a 3D program is rendering frames (oh, the joys of multitasking!)
ClariSSA might be made to 'grab' each one as it is completed and append it to an SSA animation.
Similar processes can be carried out with other programs, including Art Department Professional and certain video digitisers (including Vlab). Such automatic compilation can be a great boon for animators, as they can leave their Amiga to get on with the hard work whilst they can take a well- earned rest.
The most obvious use of ClariSSA is to convert either standard ANIM5 anims or sequences of IFF images into Super Smooth Animations (SSAs). These SSAs not only play back faster, but also more smoothly than a standard Amiga animation (though at the expense of larger file sizes). ClariSSA achieves this by splitting each image into two 'half-frames', similar to the way that a TV picture is divided into two interlaced fields.
By playing the half frames back in rapid succession a much smoother-looking animation is produced. Any non-interlaced animations or images will need to be converted to Interlace format so that SSA can work properly, but this is easily done within ClariSSA.
One of the great advantages of SSA animations is that every frame can have a different colour palette (though all must have the same resolution).
Anyone familiar with the restrictions of every frame having to use the same palette - for example in Deluxe Paint animations - will doubtless breathe a large sigh of relief on discovering that they no longer have to mess about with the palette to stop all those ambient seems to fill in the gaps that most people don’t normally cover, like having the light pointing in the right direction.
“With the stuff we’re doing, we’re down to about 4 per cent. You can see there’s stuff in the shadow, but you can’t really see it clearly. All 3D Studio stuff has too much ambient lighting and it looks really washed out. It doesn’t jump out of the screen at you. It’s all very flat. Lighting is very important.” BEEP BEEP!
Eric Schwartz has achieved wide-spread fame as an Amiga animator. He’s the creator of Aerotoons, At The Movies and many more animations that you can find in the Public Domain, all of which are perfect examples of what exactly the Amiga can do.
If you’ve seen Eric’s stuff, it should be no surprise to you that he’s an avid Warner fan. “In general,” he says, “my favourite cartoons are the ones made by Warner Brothers in the ’40s and ’50s, and some of the cartoons made by Warner Brothers today, like Batman and Animaniacs. The animation is well above average for a Blake’s 7? And John Gross’ SeaQuest. The one problem I found with SeaQuest, was, although I know it was supposed to be under water, a lot of the scenes were too murky. You couldn’t see what the detail was supposed to be. But we taped Babylon 5, and the tape’s getting a little
stretched with us going through it frame-by-frame to see how the hell they did it.
“The good thing about shows produced using LightWave, such as Babylon 5, is that you can sit there and watch stuff done on Silicon Graphics workstations and you can think ‘ooh, that’s nice’, but when you watch stuff that’s been done on the package you’re using, you have the capability of doing it! It makes people think harder. You think if they can do it, I can. How?” Lighting is a good area to concentrate on he says. “My number one bugbear about most animation that I always try to get right is lighting. Most people put the ambient light too far up. When Alan Hastings was asked why he set the
ambient lighting default setting to 25 per cent he said that it was because most people don’t know how to use lighting. 25 per cent television animation, and they’re also extremely funny.
“My two favourite animators - actually they’re really animation directors - are Chuck Jones, for Warner Brothers, and Tex Avery, who worked for Warner Brothers in the early ’40s but then moved on to MGM.
“Tex Avery went for all-out wacky, zany, anything-for-a-laugh kind of ideas.
ChuckJones was fairly different from that.
While the cartoons he did were very funny, they’re based a lot more on personality and characters.” Eric’s animation tip is practical: “Get know your software. Keep experimenting with different ideas and techniques. One thing I think a lot of animators on the Amiga should remember is that they should have a good idea or a good story to work with before they start drawing or rendering.
“This doesn’t happen quite so much now, but earlier on people were creating animation to say ‘look what I can do’, then they’d run out of memory and the animation would stop.” PRACTICAL PROBLEMS Once the operating system and animation software has been loaded there may well be rather less than 1Mb of free RAM left for the storage and manipulation of an animation sequence.
Depending on the number of colours and the screen resolution of the animation, it may be that you only have enough RAM to hold and play a very short animation, particularly if it is in full overscan high-res Interlace. The only way you can increase the amount of available RAM is to add more of it to your Amiga.
However, it is possible to compromise and use less colours in order to make your free RAM go a little further. But when the RAM limits are reached, that’s it - there’s no room left for anything else. So the first Amiga extra a budding animator should consider is at least 2Mb of extra RAM.
Beyond that, it’s a matter of personal taste, budget and need. A hard drive (I’d recommend 120Mb minimum) is indispensable for faster access and greater storage, and some programs are too big to run from floppies anyway.
A video digitiser is very useful both for grabbing stills from camera and for getting Hopefully, by now you should have a good idea of what you need to be considering when you’re trying to animate. There’s one last thing we should mention, however, and that’s the Amiga itself. What hardware will you need?
The biggest stumbling block encountered by Amiga animators is the amount of RAM (or lack of it) fitted to any particular Amiga. For example, a standard .Amiga 1200 has just 2Mb of RAM available for all its tasks.
Bullfrog's Paul McGloughlan has been involved in animating the rendered intro to CD32 Theme Park.
Frames from video tape. And if you have an accelerated Amiga, all well and good - the faster it is the better. If you want top- quality graphics output, a graphics card would be an excellent asset, although you will obviously need an Amiga which can accommodate such a card.
If you are seriously into Amiga animation, then you might want to record your work to videotape. For this you’ll require access either to a single-frame- capable video recorder, single-frame controller and graphics card with video output, or to a good-quality genlock encoder. Alternatively, newer devices like DPS’s Personal Animation Recorder can save a lot of hassle and output great quality animations direct to video tape - in real time and full colour.
A cheaper option, if your animations are small and can be played back direct from your Amiga, is to hook up a genlock direct to your VCR and record away. The snag is that you probably won’t get full- speed playback, but it is a very cheap way of doing it. And for starting off at home, that’s really all you would need. Make sure you try it out, soon!

AMIGA 500 600 I200 Industrial Estate, Lawson Road, Dartford, Kent DAI 5BH Tel: 0322 292518 Fax: 0322 293422 The World Cup is upon us once again, that fine footballing festival which transforms the earth into Planet Football. No England, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales this time, but no matter; we have our memories. There's 1966, Archie Gemmill's memorable goal against the Dutch in '78, 1966, Platt's last- gasp winner against Belgium, 1966, and Gerry Armstrong's belter that defeated the Spanish on their own soil in 1982. Oh, and 1966, of course. That ball never crossed the line - God bless
Russian linesmen.
Over the next five pages we trace the history of Amiga football games and check out all the latest releases, then take a look at what we can expect to see over the next few months, as well as casting the odd wry glance in the direction of the 'People's Game'.
Once there was 'flick to kick’, now it’s 'tap fire to trap’, but one thing’s the same - we can’t get enough of footie games Steve Bradley presents your 1994 World Cup round-up.
Amiga football arcade sims can be split into two distinct dynasties - Kick Off and Sensible Soccer. These games changed the face of the soccer simulation by perfectly combining attractive visuals with speedy, smooth scrolling and stunning playability. Sensible Soccer's closest contender at the moment is probably Goal!, written by Dino Dini (who was also responsible for the first two Kick Off games). Many have tried to emulate the Kick Off and Sensible series, but most have failed. In fact, the past four years has seen over 50 football-based releases, many of which have been appalling.
But footer games are not just about smacking in the winning goal
- many prefer the gentler art of the management sim, where you
pit your wits against the best bosses in the business and try
to pick a winning team. Whatever your preference, the Amiga is
so richly served, there is sure to be a game to suit your
soccer needs. Pheeeeep!
Commodore UK have sponsored Chelsea Football Club since before Amiga Format even existed, but it’s only in the last couple of seasons that the Amiga logo has graced the Londoners’ blue shirts.
Perhaps that’s what got them to the FA Cup Final in 1994. Sadly it won’t happen again, because next season Dennis Wise’s shirt will carry the name of a new sponsor.
A CHRONOLOGY OF AMIGA FOOTBALL GAMES Some have been classics, many have been trash, but the Amiga has always had plenty of footie games... 1989 - World Cup qualifying Way back in 1989, a young slip of a lad named Kick Off (AFT 91%) entered the footballing fray.
Smooth and slick, it was to become the benchmark for Amiga soccer games.
MicroProse Soccer (AFT 67%) boasted banana kicks and opted for large, cartoon-style graphics but fell down with a bump on playability.
1990-World Cup Italia Fighting Soccer (AF6 43%) stepped into the ring, fists aloft, but was far too slow, while Superleague Soccer (AF6 48%) was just too darned complicated for its own good. Result: first round knockout for Kick Off.
Kenny Dalglish Soccer Match (AF8 31%) was a simple, side-on viewed arcade game let down by "appalling gameplay". Poor old Kenny.
The tenth issue of Amiga Format welcomed World Cup fever and not one, but three new releases. Player Manager (93%) successfully mixed Kick Off with management sim tactics, while Manchester United (62%) attempted the same but turned out to be relegation fodder. Italia '90 (27%) was just plain sluggish. One month later, World Cup Soccer Italia '90 (AFT I 74%) offered the now-familiar viewed-from-above perspective although it was felt to be Second Division when compared to the then all-conquering Kick Off.
The surprisingly named Italy 1990 from US Gold (AFT2 80%) upped the Amiga footballing tempo and was particularly strong graphically. Not that anyone plays it now, of course. And then came Kick Off 2 (AFT3 94%). Future Publishing ground UP AND COMING GAMES Top coders Graftgold have joined forces with Empire Software to produce Empire Soccer '94, a quirky arcade number with 32 national sides, a multi-player option and a full World Cup competition. The teams each have six 'super powers', enabling them to gain superiority over their opponents. Look out for a full review next month.
©*= & & ON THE BALL Coming from software giants US Gold, World Cup USA '94 has a major tactical advantage in that it is the officially licensed game of the tournament. It plays safe with the top-down view perspective that's been conventional ever since Kick Off in 1 989, as well as a host of options. The licence and marketing muscle of US Gold should ensure its success.
FIFA INTERNATIONAL SOCCER Electronic Arts 0753 549442 ¦ £29.99 ¦ Out July EA's FIFA Soccer has already run riot over the consoles. The television-style view-from-somewhere-in-the-corner adds a new dimension to the footie sim and if EA can successfully convert the superb visuals and playability of the Mega Drive version to the Amiga, then we should be in for a real treat.
SENSIBLE WORLD OF SOCCER Renegade 071-481 9214 ¦ £25.99 ¦ Out October Retaining the playability of the original and adding a host of new features, SwofS (thank you) includes full management, player-manager and player- only facilities as well as 1,400 teams from around the world, so if you fancy running a Second Division Bolivian side (and who doesn't?) Now is your chance. With 22,000 players (all real names) and an international transfer market, you can tempt stars from all over the world. Also included are referee and physio sprites and international sampled crowd chants, though it's not yet
clear whether 'One-nil to the Arsenal' to the tune of The Pet Shop Boys' 'Go West' will get an airing.
REAL WORLD FOOTBALL Infogrames 071-738 8199 ¦ £34.99 (A1200 and CD32 only) ¦ Out June Looks set to become one of the oddest Amiga football games. It features a 3D players'-view perspective, the 24 teams participating in the World Cup (lucky, eh?) And six others including England, Scotland and France. Also, there are 6,000 animations, 1 1 camera zooms per player and realistic team play - so the English play kick and rush (bit unfair, eh Tel?) While the Brazilians practice their ball control. Should be very interesting. Hopefully we'll have a comprehensive review next month.
KICK OFF 3 Imagineer Anco 0322 292513 ¦ £29.99 (£32.99 CD32) ¦ Out October It's some four years since Kick Off 2 volleyed all opposition out of the ground and after a timespan normally only associated with the release of Stone Roses albums, Anco are set to unleash Kick Off 3, this time utilising the unfashionable side-on perspective. Also in the pipeline is Kevin Keegan Player Manager combining Kick Off 3 and a management section.
Entering the highly competitive management simulation market is On The Ball, which sets out to bring new levels of realism and playability to the genre. Its trump card could well be the TV-style coverage of each match, with commentary and action replays from vantage points around the stadium, a method more familiar with American Football games.
CLUB FOOTBALL - THE MANAGER The Software Business Imagine Home Entertainment 0480 4964971 £29.99 H Out soon Attempting to tackle the opposition in their first outing, Software Biz are teaming up with programmers Teque to produce a comprehensive management sim. And to make it more realistic than the rest, they have added a special statistic for each player - an intelligence rating. The higher it is, the greater initiative the player will show. Not only that, managers will have to retire at 55 so you can't just paddle on until you eventually win something.
To a halt as folk gathered to worship its polished visuals, super sound and fabulous gameplay (bendy shots being a fabulous addition) while a 51%) hobbled on to the scene but its shoddy mix of arcade and management was a tearful affair. Not even the injury-prone Geordiemeister could save it.
32-man inter-magazine league raged on and an FA Cup competition was fought out.
Oh no, look who it is! Question Of Sport's Crazy Horse Emlyn Hughes arrived on the hallowed turf of AF's Screenplay section with his endorsed International Soccer (AFI4 78%) which, despite being a playable arcade game, put off many because of the words 'Emlyn' and 'Hughes'.
Everton FC Intelligensia (AF14 53%) - surely a contradiction in terms - was a straightforward soccer quiz, and not a particularly great one at that. As an alternative, European Superleague (AF17 74%), a quirky management sim, put you in charge of team affairs during a 'working' week.
World Championship Soccer (AF20 80%) was an altogether smoother affair, compared even to the champ Kick Off 2, but it couldn't match the wonderfully named I Play 3D Soccer [AF24 81%) which, despite being visually baffling, improved with perseverance.
Back for the second instalment of what has recently become a trilogy came Manchester United Europe AF25 80%). Although favourably received back in '91, it hasn't aged well, particularly in terms of playability.
Not that it was worse than Striker Manager 1991 - EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP QUALIFIERS (AF26 53%) which looked absolutely daft.
After the trauma of the World Cup, Gaxza II [AF20 Continued overleaf ?
WORLI CUP YE AM Empire 081-343 7337 ¦ £29.99 ¦ Out now Includes - Sensible Soccer, Goal!, Striker, Championship Manager '93 '94 INTERNATIONAL SOCCER Zeppelin Games 091-385 7755 ¦ £9.99 ¦ Out now Funny business, this. A game that Small sprites, top-down pitch and stunning playability make Sensible Soccer the greatest.
03 BUSHELL S OB MMHl 1 m COOPER ...S. _ Dino Dini’s Goal! Is more of an arcade game than a soccer sim which is, perhaps, why it works.
Mwm The slowest footie simulation ever, International Soccer is often the most humorous. Even my Gran’s quicker.
Looks pretty, yet plays like Harrogate Railway FC after a particularly heavy night on the beer. It could, in theory, be a lot of fun.
And it is - in small doses. It looks like Sensible Soccer although the similarities end there. What we are treated to is a game so slow tljat a Terry Tortoise Select 11 could easily outpace many of the participants.
And though it's only a tenner, International Soccer provides only comedy value - just try playing two non-league teams.
Yet there are some nice graphic touches. Witness a goalscorer falling flat on his back after knocking it past the keeper, before the whole team run back toward the halfway line, arms aloft in triumph. Not a serious contender though.
All the players have made-up names, but you can edit in your own favourites.
When joystick-waggling takes its toll, Striker is probably the Amiga’s fastest Championship Manager is the ideal soccer sim ever. Unfortunately, the pace tonic. Oh, ail right, it’s even more tense. Occasionally detracts from the gameplay.
This is impressive. Very impressive. In fact, I'm almost tempted to suggest that if you get a copy of this compilation, you won't really need to bother acquiring any more footie games - apart from Sensible World Of Soccer, of course. Sensible Soccer VI .1 is the shining light of the bunch - a game so near to perfection you can almost smell the polish. The wide pitch view enables you to plan pinpoint passing moves, or you can simply hoof it up toward the strikers every time. The sound is tremendous - great airhorns and chants of 'Erik the Viking' - and even though the sprites are tiny you grow
to love them like you love Granny. And Grandad. Programming genius.
Dino Dini is one of the most famous Amiga games programmers and made his name with the Kick Off series. Goal! Saw him stray from the Kick Off name but again, Dino produced the goods. With more options than a pick 'n' mix stall, Goal! Is fast, slick and immensely playable. It's more of a knockabout arcade game than a full-blown football simulation, though, and perhaps this is what makes it stand out from the crowd.
Striker received a whopping 93 per cent when it first arrived back in July '92. Played at an almost ridiculous pace, it has an end-to-end isometric perspective view of the pitch. The 64 international teams are all seeded, so if you're Qatar and facing the Germans then you will probably be on a hiding to nothing. But despite the speed, Striker remains a playable game let down by the fact that it's too easy to keep the ball at your feet. Fun, if a tad frantic.
Aha, the ubiquitous Championship Manager '93 '94. This is an excellent addition to the collection. When you're fed up with joystick-waggling, settle back in your sheepskin coat and attempt to steer your team to glory. This really is one of the best management sims around. There are plenty of features, loads of statistics and everything is beautifully laid out.
World Cup Year '94 is by far the best football compilation ever released and at 30 knicker, it really is a tremendous bargain.

Bizarrely, this package includes a copy of Nick Hornby's excellent book Fever Pitch. The disk itself is simply an update of recent transfer activity, promotions and relegations (goodbye Swindon!) But unfortunately by the time next season starts there will no doubt have been a load more transfers. So it'll be out of date. Of course you need to have the original game, so the whole thing is pretty expensive and if Domark decide to bring out a Start Of Season disk in August you'll be feeling pretty miffed.
Rants aside, Championship Manager is a solid management sim and for fans who like a good read, Hornby's book is possibly the best ever written about football. Mind, if you can afford an extra 14 quid you'd be better off with the Empire World Cup Year '94 compilation.
«¦ 1992-EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS, SWEDEN A game for fans with a penchant for anoraks and lovely long train numbers, Starbyte Super Soccer (AF33 63%) was mostly text-based stuff, while Codemasters' 1 st Division Manager resembled Kick Off, though unfortunately, it wasn't.
The Manager (AF3S 79%) came originally from Germany and was a winner all over Europe.
It was an agreeably polished management sim, easy to get into, but still a collection of numbers to shuffle around.
Trumpet fanfare and off we head into July '92 whereupon a couple of gems popped up. Sensible Soccer (AF36 90%) was a self-confessed Kick Off derivative, but still toppled Kick Off 2 from its perch
- and the rest is history. Although Striker (AF36 93%) was warmly
received and has since become a major console hit, in
retrospect the game was a little too pacey for its own good,
despite its amazing 3D 'in the action' viewpoint.
New AF ed Steve Jarratt checked out Football Champ (AF3740%) only to discover that it was "practically unplayable". And with FA Cup winners Liverpool looking forward to their first appearance on the continent in a long while, John Barnes European Football [AF3742%) was released - a side-on arcade number which under-achieved in a manner typical of Barnes himself.
It wasn't a case of "Do I not like that" when Graham Taylor's Soccer Challenge [AF37 82%) appeared. It was slick and superbly presented, and some wondered whether Turnip-head deserved such a game. European Champions (AF38 40%) arrived with a dodgy poster and the comment "the game is actually as crap as the poster". Says it all.
Way back in October '92 when Liverpool were WEMBLEY INTERNATIONAL SOCCER Audiogenic 081-424 2244 ¦ A1200 £25.99 ¦ CD32 £29.99 ¦ Out now If at first it flops, get yourself an endorsement and tweak accordingly before re-releasing. Wembley International Soccer appeared in a different guise some eight months ago and was known as European Champions (AF52 73%).
This time around, the club sides have been replaced by national teams, but other than that the differences are purely cosmetic. It's very distinctive in that the sprites are huge and the kit detail superb, and WIS (as we shall call it evermore) offers two pitch views - top-down and side view. The latter is the better option, extending more opportunity to plan and execute passing moves.
Enormous, detailed sprites are what separates WIS from its rivals.
Unusually, there is an option for one player to use the CD*52 controller (on both A1200 and CD32 versions) bringing into play all the buttons.
Unfortunately, even with two CD controllers on the CD32 version, only one can make use of this option - a definite minus point. Plus points, though, are a one-touch passing option and an excellent tactics system which enables fine team tuning.
WIS is certainly different from most Amiga footie games and people looking for a change should enjoy it, but it is a tad slow. If you bought European Champions then don't bother; otherwise, WIS is a good addition to your collection, but unlikely to have the longevity of Sensible Soccer.

GREAT WORLD CUP CHARACTERS SELECT 11 The world of soccer is filled with 'lads', 'characters' and the occasional 'nutter'. Here is Amiga Format's choice for a characteristic soccer team...
1. Rene Huigita Custodian of the Columbian onion- bag bearing
uncanny resemblance to King Charles II.
2. Josimar The all-arms-and-legs Brazilian bananameister.
3. Ray Wilson Yorkshire undertaker from the '66 side. Used to
defend the box. Now he builds them.
4. Socrates 80 tabs-a-day Brazilian philosopher (cut down to
40-a-day for World Cup). Well choked after the defeat by Italy
in '82.
5. Jack Charlton 'The giraffe'. Now 'St Jack' after Republic of
Ireland's cup exploits.
Entered folklore in Italia '90 on the Irish T-shirt which coupled Jack with the Pope, captioned 'Who's that with our Jack?'
Well, the rest are mere contenders, aren't they? This is the one. Fast, silky smooth and a pailful of playability - tremendous, Desmond. Included are all the teams participating in the World Cup and updated club sides (from the start of 93 94 season). You can enter the World Championship, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the World Cup, you get referees who waggle their fingers admonishingly. The gameplay remains reassuringly simple and although the press release claims that it's been 'tweaked', it's difficult to tell quite where. Maybe the goalies are a bit better - anyway, if it's not
broken, don't fix it. We are not worthy.
6. Frank Rijkaard Dreadlocked Flemish phlegm merchant deserves a
jersey after the infamous gobbing incident with Rudi Voeller
in Italia '90. Off you go, Frank.
7. Carlos Valderrama Beautifully coiffeured Columbian striker.
Once had his shorts 'interfered' with by Spanish defender.
8. Paul Gascoigne Gifted, tear-stained, injury-prone Geordie
waif.
9. Roger Milla Heading towards the half century in years, yet
possessor of the finest post-goal wiggle since James Brown.
10. Diego Maradona Bullish, powder-snorting soccer genius with a
penchant for Messianic claims. (And the bloke who probably
robbed us of the '90 World Cup.)
11. Pac Doo Ik North Korean howitzer merchant who sent the
Italians packing way back in '66 at that most glorious of
footballing shrines, Ayresome Park, Middlesbrough (the one in
Cleveland).
Still famous, they lent their name to the peculiarly monikered Liverpool (AF39 45%), but it turned out to be as dreadful as their 1993 form.
Des and Jimmy made an appearance in Match Of The Day (AF40 56%), a management sim which singularly failed to inspire.
,1993 - World Cup qualifiers (oh dear...) All rivals were quickly forgotten when the tweaked Sensible Soccer VI .1 (AF42 80%) re-appeared, this time with the back-pass rule implemented and red and yellow cards for those players who enjoyed getting 'stuck in'. Gosh, we were a bit harsh on the mark though.

Some consolation to real fans was the fact that Gremlin finally cracked the art of the management sim with the excellent Premier Manager (AF43 87%) but the
Amiga footballing joy lasted but a month before Euro Soccer (AF44 45%) reared its ugly sprites. Poor 3D graphics and shocking scrolling relegated it forthwith. Domark's Championship Manager '93 (AF48 82%) improved considerably on the original, providing staunch opposition to newcomer Premier Manager.
Kick Off programmer Dino Dini weighed in with Goal! (AF49 88%) in an attempt to wrestle the ball from Sensible Soccer. Good though Goal! Was, it never quite managed to dispossess solid old 'Sens ', as folk were now starting to call it.

SENSIBLE SOCCER
1. 1 (AF42 80%) &1.2 (AF61 03%j The best, and the more you play
it, the better it gets. Tiny sprites, great gameplay and
thousands of copies sold, this is the one to beat. Look out
for the all-encompassing Sensible World Of Soccer in Oct.
STRIKER (AF30 93%) Rage's superfast footie game caused a stir
two years back but hasn't lasted the pace. It's far too easy
to run around the pitch with the ball but isn't bad for a
tenner.
GOALS (AM® 88%) Dino Dini's Kick Off follow-up offered two views and remains one of the best footer games around.
However, it couldn't quite match up to the success of its famed ancestor.
MANCHESTER UNITED PLC (AFSS 81%) The third in the Man U series, and the best. Loads of teams, a Kick Off- esque control and an innovative TactiGrid ensured a high chart placing. The words 'Manchester' and 'United' helped too.
4" some rather confusing gameplay a month later.
Premier Manager II (AF53 89%) sufficiently improved on the original for a near-Gold rating.
1994 - WORLD CUP USA Although Zeppelin's Premier Division (AF56 50%) added nothing to the management sim genre and was promptly slaughtered by Championship Manager Italia [AF58 85%), a detailed journey into the highly glamourous world of Serie A. Manchester United Premier League Champions AF58 81%) combined solid gameplay with management tactics and a ground-breaking TactiGrid system which enabled you to produce some wicked formations.
Although a considerable improvement on the SIERRA SOCCER .
Clytfewn G?ffiany 0- 0 Bolivia first two in the series, MUPLC (says it all really) wasn't quite the Sensible beater that many were touting it as.
Despite being named after a superb car, Sierra Soccer [AF60 68%) offered much but delivered little into the box. You could score the most fantastic goals but programming glitches saw it cut down savagely in its own half.
The heavily text-based Tactical Manager (AF60 78%) took management sim detail and then added more facts and figures. And then more.
Polished fare, but for aficionados only.

This isn't a bad platform game. It's just, well, the whole thing is a bit dark. Most of the backgrounds are black with the odd purple pixel thrown in, and even though the parallax scrolling is smooth, and yes, I know the whole shebang is taking place on the moon, JP deserves better.

best platform games to appear on Commodore's eight-bit. The version included with IM2025 is as close to the original as you can get (although the lift whine is a little high-pitched). And the Ed reckons you'll get more fun out of the C64 version than the new one: "Flashy graphics aren't everything, you know" he intones, knowingly.

O Visa D Access CH Cheque (payable to Future Publishing Ltd) Card No: Tel No: Expiry Date: ulure By the time you get to Mexico, the puzzles and platforms become pretty tricky Worse, Pierre’s flour gun and vegetable net are increasingly hard to find.
The ingredients - and his net, which is used to trap them. You have to collect a certain number of ingredients on each level, then deposit them in a cage to open the level exit.
Have you ever, ever seen anyone eat a kebab in the daytime? No. People only eat them late at night because you have to be completely off your face to eat one.
They also glow in the dark so you can find your way home.
Now, Pierre Le Chef may not enjoy eating sweaty lamb at 3am outside Birmingham nightclubs, but he does know a lot about cooking.
In fact, he spends most of his time trotting around the globe in search of those certain ingredients which make his dishes extra special and enhance his reputation.
This time Pierre is off to Switzerland, Greece, the West Indies, Mexico and France to track down each country's gastronomic treats and, naturally enough, you have to be there to help him.
The ingredients are spread over 48 increasingly complex levels and your first task is to find Pierre's flour gun - which is needed for stunning To hinder your progress, the vegetables can run away or stun you, there's a time limit, and you can be attacked by bacteria or have your captured ingredients set free by the evil Le Chef Noir.
There's a little tactical planning involved here. Depending on the location of the cage, you can either collect all your ingredients in one fell swoop - but risk losing them if you get stunned - or you can keep making return trips to the cage to deposit each ingredient.
Pierre can also collect fruit bonuses at the end of every world and there are a variety of different weapons - including tabasco sauce
- which he can use on the ingredients and nasties on each
level.
This game is great. You can't help liking the cutely animated Pierre ¦laSBpgw.
Greece is filled with doric columns, unbearably high jumps and psychotic aubergines doing airship impressions, Le Chef Noir! One well-aimed stomp on the evil one’s head should stop him set ting all your ingredients free.
Nearly home: Pierre arrives in Paris, France with his quest for nourishment nirvana nearly at an end.
As he leaps around from platform to platform and it really is tremendous fun chasing the ingredients around each level, depositing them in a cage, then setting off for more.
Out To Lunch is also very tricky.
Even early on you can get hopelessly stuck - Switzerland, for example, is filled with narrow, icy platforms which can make getting from one end of a level to the other incredibly frustrating. You also never know where the exit is until you've deposited the last ingredient into the cage, so you have to be quick on your feet.
You also lose a life - Pierre comes with three - every time you fail to complete a level on time or get struck down by a nasty bout of salmonella. There are no continues and you only get a password once you've completed a world, so you have to complete 12 levels in one go, with failure sending you right back to the beginning again.
Despite this, Out To Lunch remains extremely enjoyable. The joystick control is intuitive and you can usually scale the death-defying leaps on each level without too much difficulty. Graphically the game's a treat, with gorgeous parallaxing and slickly animated sprites. Looks like Pierre Le Chef could be with us for some time to come.
Rob Mead O PROGRAMMERS Mindscape in-house PUBLISHER Mindscape 0444 246333 PRICE £25.99 RELEASED Pierre begins his culinary journey in Switzerland where he has to track down the sock-iike taste of Emmental cheese.
Out now More colours than a greengrocer's shop, cutesy sprites and great parallax scrolling.
SOUND The sound effects are mostly whizzes and boings, but eggs make a lovely cracking noise.
ADDICTION Has you screaming "Come here, stupid tomato!" Just before you die. Wonderfully frustrating.
PLAYABILITY With 48 tricky levels and the menacing Le Chef Noir, it will keep you occupied for weeks 66 Ovf To Lwneh is hotter than a hot dog, prettier than an angel cake, trickier than a baked alaska and deadlier than a salmonella quiche.
A mighty fine platform game. 99 There may be 4,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire, but Valhalla features far, far more Looking down from above, you have to make sure not to fall down them.
Here's a novelty.
Level are filled with unseen traps and even the odd scrap of map can't save you from frequent inexplicable deaths.
This means you spend more time shuttling between the Load Save Game screen and the main game area than actually playing the thing itself. Worse, for a speech adventure the game offers precious little in the way of useful information and - along with the frequent deaths and cumbersome controls - leaves you angry, frustrated and utterly bored. Avoid.
Rob Mead The 'first ever Amiga speech adventure' follows the fortunes of a little chap called the Prince of Valhalla who has vowed to wreak his revenge on the evil Lords of Infinity, who have destroyed his father's kingdom.
The action is viewed from a top-down perspective, with the prince looking up to you for guidance and to pass brief details about the objects he sees or collects.
The game features four levels of puzzles, traps and unusual characters, but it's the speech samples which really set the game apart - instead of having reams of text cluttering up the screen, Valhalla actually talks to you in a cutesy voice about everything that happens in the game.

PROGRAMMERS Paul Hunter | PUBLISHER Psygnosis 051-709 5755 PRICE £25.99 RELEASED Out now Sure, you have vehicles and weapons, but not many. The key is to gather resources and factory capacity so that you can build more Weapons. There are plenty of factories and mines scattered around, but most are occupied, so your first judgement must be how many units you can afford to spend capturing these mines.
You have a team of scientists to develop new weapons and refine existing ones. When you 'liberate' some territory, more scientists will become available.
These cunning scientists have invented a teleport device with which you can travel vast distances without using any fuel (many vehicles have a limited range). Teleport devices are quite robust and can be carried and left at your destination by a number of vehicles, including bomber aircraft. A useful early mission, then, is to load up your bomber and fly as far into enemy territory as you can. Just before you get taken out, drop the teleport. Then the tanks can move in.
A downed enemy aircraft. The raw materials can be saved if you have a recycling pod The ultimate goal is to capture and refit a rocket launching site from which to recapture the satellite. To aid you in this, you have many types of vehicle - tanks, hovercraft, helicopters and airships - and piloting each is a game in itself.
All of them have different attributes and are piloted in different ways. The helicopter can take off and hover, tanks' turrets move s Tool up for combat in the command silos.
This helicopter will benefit from the extra firepower of mini-rockets.
Independently of the direction they are travelling, airships are sluggish.
However, the controls are more or less generic, so it's not like learning a new flight sim every time you step into a new vehicle. Echoes of that Mike Singleton classic Ashes here.
There are four skill levels including a training mode, which is especially useful, because the game can easily be over before you've worked out what's going on.
Perhaps I'm getting old, but to succeed at this game you have to swap between up to six vehicles, blasting, bombing and planning as you go, virtually incessantly - I can only take about 20 minutes without having to sit down with a Valium sandwich. Like the classic Carrier Command[ it is demanding.
There are many ways you can play it, though, and each is very satisfying. The filled-3D animation is good, and as a sort of Ashes Carrier Command Millennium 2.2 mixture, it's a surprisingly decent game.

BTTTTirrFT Polygon vehicles ore simple, but well animated and fast. External views of your craft are tisefui. : SOUND Nothing astounding in the audio department, unfortunately - just the usual bangs and crashes.
ADDICTION After initial confusion, it's great Controls are easy to master but there's always a lot going on.
VERDICT Challenging, in the sense of very hard work at times, but also good fun.
It could take you a very long time to even get near to completing this classic sim strategy combination. M What's won more trophies than Brazil?

r. Zub tefC TME Crash dummies never did have much road sense.
This time Siick comes a cropper under a baddie’s moped.
There can be few less rewarding jobs than being a crash dummy.
You get strapped in, some idiot in an overall sticks a brick on the accelerator pedal and before long you're shooting through the windscreen of a Mini Metro at 90 miles an hour.
Incredible Crash Dummies gives the auto industry's unsung heroes their own (surprise, surprise) platform game. Dummies Spin and Slick are roused to action when the evil Junkman steals the plans of a T9000 bionic dummy and kidnaps Dr Zub, a top scientist. Bravely, Spin volunteers to stay behind, while you - as Slick - head off in search of Dr Zub.
Despite getting completely legless in the car park thanks to some rogue tyres and a vindictive metal crusher or two, Slick still puts up a brave fight.
It's different from most platform games in that the aim is to survive and complete a series of levels against a time limit. Each level is filled with hazards - crash cars, mad dummies on bikes, pits of fire - and each time Slick collides with one he loses a part of his anatomy.
Once both arms and legs are gone, it only takes one more hit to lose a life, but Slick can hop round a level however badly damaged he is, and there are plenty of medicinal screwdrivers dotted around to bring him back to health. He can also pick up spanners to throw at baddies, as well as a host of other power-ups.
The novelty of hopping around on one leg or losing your arms keeps you amused PROGRAMMERS Dave Semmens and Doug Townsley PUBLISHER Virgin 081-960 2255 PRICE £19.99 RELEASED Out now GRAPHICS ¦S nOTH MM MIMi'sS hWm imm WP t**m- Like owning a beige Allegro - competent, bland, uninspiring Sick sprites are great, though.

could write about how you can make music with your computer
till we’re blue in the face.
But here’s a better idea... More than 1 hour of essential listening, plus software for Future Music magazine with dual-format CD, on sale Tuesday 28 June Pinball plays an important role in the lives of the AF team. When the going gets tough around dead- ne week, a gaggle of writers,
* echies and artists are often to be found grabbing a half-hour
break crowded around a Terminator, ~wilight Zone or Creature
From The Black Lagoon table.
And when the deadline has cassed and another excellent edition of AF is rolling off the presses you'll find us in celebratory mood, crowded around an Indiana Jones, Lethal Weapon or Jurassic Park machine. Playing the silver ball is relaxing, invigorating and alluring and most of us are hooked.
So, when a new pinball game jl arrives, there's a always a buzz of excitement in the office. But the reaction provoked by The Ultimate Pinball Quest was not so much one of excitement as curiosity bordering on bemusement.
Fiippin’ heck! What’s going on here? This young lady is apparently one of the three daughters of the river who have scarpered with the six elements of life. How strange ULTIMATE PINBALL QUEST PROGRAMMER Claus Bjerre PUBLISHER Infogrames 071-738 8199 PRICE £29.99 RELEASED Out now Quirky, that's the word. Or is it bonkers? Or maybe dire? No Pinball Quest is a decidedly quirky game. In Arcade Mode you have a choice of three tables - Wasteland, Heavy , Metal and Antarctica. The last two are extremely average, but Wasteland is fun because you have to work your way up the table through a series
of flippers, which can become a frustrating and fiendishly addictive exercise.
You can also select the bonus tables, so you can play these levels This bonus level from the Wasteland table has a peculiar brown quality.
It’s fun pinging around the Antarctic table, but not the ultimate challenge without having to go through the rigmarole of shooting the bonus holes.
But it's the Adventure Mode that suggests that Pinball Quest was created by somebody with a healthy disregard for the normal conventions of games and, for that matter, pinball. In Adventure Mode you're back on the Wasteland table, but there's an animated intro sequence featuring some old greybeard, and three scantily- clad women in crystal balls.
Apparently the sun of Calypso has entered its third zenith. The three daughters of the river, who were mistresses of all destinies, have stolen the six elements of life that ensured temporal and ecological balance and you've got to find them.
The Adventure Mode is a splendid idea. Unfortunately, it's not entirely clear what you're supposed to do, but it's good fun pinging the ball around trying to find out. In this respect Pinball Quest is close to reality because illM ostcrhv.
There are 60 levels on the Wasteland table - unfortunately they are very similar This bonus level on the Heavy Metal table is a bit of a bagatelle.
Nobody can understand the little game cards tucked under the glass on real tables - least of all, I suspect, the people who wrote them.
Including puzzle, adventure or shoot-em-up themes in a pinball game Is the way to go - it's much more interesting than bland pinball sims such as Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies, but The Ultimate Pinball Quest makes it too complicated. There are other downsides: two of the tables are poor, and the third becomes tedious when you realise you're working your way up through the same three playing areas.
The graphics are naff, the music is drab - the Wasteland table has a peculiar accordion influence - and you only get one score displayed on screen at once, so it's never clear who's winning a multi-player game, there's far too much disk-swapping and at £30 it's much too expensive.
But hey, it's got flippers and a nice silver ball, so it can't be all bad.
Hiefiarsf 3mm Backgrounds are poor, but the ball pings around at a fair old pace when you get going.
Merely ups the irritation factor, Bizarre accordion influence on the Wasteland table.
ADDICTION Difficult and frustrating enough to keep dedicated pinballers swapping disks with abandon.
PLAYABILITY The game works well, and despite a few reservations it's all surprisingly realistic.
« If it was £15 cheaper this would be a crucial buy for pinball freaks, but no way is it worth £30. Although that's only 1 OO games of Terminator (not counting replays and matches). 99 Sames = 1MB) =COL iS CHES iTACK SUB

Clockwiser is a doddle of a game to get into and devilishly difficult to pick up. Complete a level and you want to do another one, then another, with your brain turning ever bigger somersaults as you try to outwit the programmers against the time limit. It's all terribly addictive and turns you into a shouting lunatic if you play it for more than an hour.
Rob Mood €?
Before he hit the box office big time with A Fish Called Wanda, John Cleese played a clock- watching headmaster who, by a series of unfortunate errors, ended up being days late for a crucial speech. The film was called Clockwise and had nothing to do with this game whatsoever.
No, Clockwiser is a puzzle game in the age-old tradition of moving blocks around to create a certain pattern against a stringent time limit.

Rob Mead lifts the lid on his CD32 and checks out some of the latest releases.
Riginally available as a CDTV title, Battlechess (Interplay 0865 390029, £25.99) takes one of the world's oldest board games and adds a dash of 3D animation to bring the pieces and moves to life.
The game features six difficulty levels, a Suggested Moves option to help you out of those tricky situations and the ability to switch to a plainer (but quicker) 2D view when the animations begin to pall.
Yuk! This game is horribly, unforgivably dated. The graphics are poor - with or without animation - and the music and sound effects will soon have you climbing the walls in fits of mild disgust.
The joypad controls are straightforward enough once you get used to the perspective, but pressing the Blue button every time you want to bring up a menu soon gets tiresome.
The game concept's great, but then it's chess, isn't it? Stick to the proper board game version.
Also from Interplay comes The Lost Vikings (£25.99), a cutesy platform game starring three Norsemen called Olaf, Baelog and Erik. Each chap has different skills, but the talents of all three must be used together to complete each of the game's 37 levels - Baelog comes equipped with a sword and is useful for dispatching baddies, while Olaf has a shield for deflecting alien fire.
Controlling three chaps at the same time is a little strange at first, but becomes second nature after the first few levels. There are plenty of puzzles and sticky situations for you to get yourself into and the constant bickering between the three hairy Norse protagonists keeps you quite amused, for a little while at least.
One major disappointment comes when you see the paucity of Vikings' graphics. Ported straight over from the ordinary Amiga version, the levels lack colour or par- allaxing and appear cheesy and dated. The other disappointment is the price. £26 really is too much to pay for what is little more than an average platformer.
Every pub in the country has its own SAS member. Ours claimed to be working undercover as a streetcleaner during the week, while sabotaging Iraqi airbases at the weekend. Strangely we all believed it. Perhaps it's got something to do with Sabre Team (Krisalis 0709 372290, £29.99), an isometric strategy game which pits a team of our toughest fighting men against an assortment of scumbags, terrorists and Third World dictators.
This is a turn-based game which awards a set number of action points to each member of your four man team. Once you've loaded your weapons and made your moves, the bad guy takes over and you sit there, fingers crossed, hoping he's not going to spot you before you blast the living daylights out of him.
This CD32 version is based on the Amiga AGA version and comes complete with 256-colour graphics and plenty of speech samples. The turn-based approach means the action is a little ponderous at times and in this version both the good guys and the terrorists have a nasty habit of disappearing thanks to some annoying programming bugs. The joystick controls are a little cumbersome too - you're better off using a mouse if you have one.
In this revolutionary Speech Adventure you are the prince’s mentor on his quest to avenge his father’s murder at the hands of Infinity. Inching your way through four vast levels in the chilling castle of Valhalla, you enter a world crammed with logical puzzles and richly interactive characters. The cinematic graphics are dazzling, the spine tingling soundtrack mesmerising in this magical world of words which redefines the adventure game and leaves you speechless;...

Portsmouth. Hants. PC)2 7NA, lei; 0705 070209 hat goes around comes around, crooned rappers Cypress Hill and in a way, they were right. Amiga games are no different, and making a beeline for the stage begging: 'Please Re-release Me', is the waspish shoot-em-up Apidya (Team 17, 0924 291 867, £ 10.99, reviewed AF35 90%), which was originally from German software house Bluebyte, but has now been snaffled and re-awoken by those Wakefield funsters Team 17.
You are a wasp in a horizontal scrolling shoot-em-up. Perhaps with an invisible gun, or maybe you just fire spit. The aim: to be true and kill as many insects as possible - bees, mosquitoes, giant butterflies and snails - while hopefully progressing through piles of levels.
But it's not easy being a wasp because every time you get shot down, all the extra fire power you spent an age accumulating goes right down the pan. Graphically, it's a Percy Thrower-tended garden and your sprite moves as smooth as a vel- In Apidya’s two-player mode you can play either the big wasp or the little fella.
Are the old ones still the good ones? This is the question that Stephen Bradley wrestles with as he tackles the month’s re-releases.
Vet caterpillar. On a leather sofa.
It's slightly easier (and glorious fun) in simultaneous two-player mode and a tremendous acquisition for 1 1 notes. Well, coins.
Jack Nicklaus' Unlimited Golf And Course Design (Action 16, 0276 684959, £16.99, not previously reviewed) - now there's a title to wrap your tongue around.
No doubt, there are many people who will welcome with open arms the opportunity to design their own golf course. However, actually playing the two courses this veteran affair includes is rather more simple than one might expect. It's not wildly dissimilar to the monumental PGA Tour in looks and design - just easier. But if you fancy building your own Sandwich then it's worth a look.
Kent Walton. Whatever happened to Kent Walton? Or was it Ken Walton? In any event, I'm sure the great World Of Sport wrestling MC would approve of the bizarre cast of characters in Body Blows AGA (Team 17, 0924 291 867, £14.99). All of these characters have special moves, all move with grace and the 256-colour backgrounds look simply lush.
This is as slick an Amiga beat- em-up as they come, a snip for a mere 15 sovs (you can upgrade the non-AGA version for £7.99 by returning your original disks) and it's even hard drive installable.
"You'll never get away with this Blofeld. Erm, I mean Hitler." It was an unlikely combination - Sean Connery and Harrison Ford, but heck the film was a smashing romp across continents. LucasArts point 'n' click graphic adventure, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade (KixxXL, 021-606 1800, £14.99, not previously reviewed) takes you in search of the Holy Grail while fending off the might of the Nazis.
Area is huge, there to solve and the usual dose of LucasArt humour. It's not wildly sophisticated by today's standards - the sound is poor, but Indy will certainly find favour among fans of the genre.
Thank heavens for that. At last, a game combining space, spice and giant worms. Dune (Hit Squad, 061-832 6633, £14.99, reviewed AF36, 79%) is based on the classic sci-fi novel of the same name and the motivation is to rid a planet of evil, mine an unfeasible amount of spice Continued overleaf 4 ?
DUNE: a compelling strategy game in which spice is the variety of life and you get to WORLDS OF LEGEND: Enter the Empire of the Moon and battle against people with ride around on large wormy things as you teach the Harkonnens a thing or two. Peculiar names in your quest for vengeance against your father’s killers.
Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade is a truly global adventure.
And surf the dunes on big worms.
How very refreshing. You play the part of Paul (who moves his eyebrows in Roger Moore-esque fashion) and who is blessed with fantastic powers.
Your task is to persuade the Fremen folk to take your side and help you take out the nasty Harkonnen mob. Dune looks fantastic, the graphics are neatly drawn and it's incredibly easy to get used to. Planning and executing military and mining operations is initially enjoyable, although experienced adventure gamers may find the action a tad repetitive as the plot progresses. However, Dune is very playable and one of the best-looking games around for 15 quid.
The only spice that Leisure Suit Larry 3 (Kixx XL, 021-606 1 800, £14.99, not previously reviewed) uses is of the old variety, comes in a red bottle and stinks to high heaven.
This time, Larry's got a friend - Passionate Patti - although why they didn't call her Shell Suit Sherry remains a complete mystery.
Anyway, there's a warning at the start which suggests those offended by adult situations, pixe- lated nudity (!), ethnic humour (?)
And sexual innuendo would be better off playing something else. You can swap roles between Patti and the keg-bellied, Hawaiian shirt-sporting Larry - the idea is to have as much bawdy fun as possible.
KINGS QUEST 3: This game is subtitled To Heir Is Human (or is it Heir We Go?) And involves all sorts of jiggery-pokery with wizards, spells and potions.
It looks all right but unfortunately, the whole concept is rather sad. Still, it is quite humorous in a 'corks-a-mighty, look at the size of those', sort of way.
To Heir Is Human is the witty subtitle of Kings Quest 3 (Kixx XL, 021-606 1800, £14.99, not previously reviewed). Evil wizard Mannanon (try saying that after a bottle of Tequila) has enslaved you and if you can't escape his clutches before you come of age, you're taking that long walk back to the pavilion in the sky. And, by jove, this looks old compared with the sophisticated stuff knocking around today.
There are piles of spells to perform and places to visit but whether you'll want to is another matter.
There's more adventure fare in Worlds Of Legend - Son Of The Empire (Action 16, 0276 684959, £16.99, not previously reviewed). As is the RPG norm, there is a ridiculous plot, loads of characters with bizarre names, spells, puzzles, potions and violence galore as you attempt to avenge the killing of your father. There are some nice isometric 3D sections and plenty for RPG-ers to get their teeth into.
MAKING THE MARKS ADD UP Many of the games here have two marks - one in the text and one on the picture. The first is the mark the game received when it was originally reviewed in Amiga Format The score on the picture is what we now think the game is worth, taking into account the re-release price, how it's aged and whether it's been superseded by a new generation of better or faster games.

PREMIER MANAGER TWO Reviewed AF53 89% I Gremlin 0742 753423 James wins a copy of Gremlin's groovy graphic adventure Legacy Of Sorasil.
Here are some tips for Gremlin's football manager game, Premier Manager Two. A good way of making money is to employ a youth team scout. When they find a player, you can promote him for nothing and then sell him at a profit four weeks later. Youth team scouts usually find two or three players a season.
Always try to start ground improvements in the last week of the season. This way, attendance is not lowered and when the new season starts, all of the improvements will have been completed.
Look out for players who have no contract on the transfer list, especially at the beginning of a season, because you only have to pay a signing-on fee for them. You can pick up bargains and keep them, or sell them four weeks later at a profit.

Which is between 720.00 - 770.00 light years. It also works from side-to-side, at approximately the same range.

Remember stars save games.
2 In the map section, talk to everybody except chickens, otherwise you are likely to lose your gems or be pointed in the wrong direction.
3 If you're are stuck for gems or stars, keep doing the same easy levels to get loads of them.
4 When you get energy balls don't waste them all on the same level; later in the game there are solid levels.
5 if you're stuck, press Escape - you won't lose a life and you can go to a different level.

Stand above one of his bombs - when it comes up you will be invincible for a short time. Don't get too close.
CHEAT You have to be on the Inca level for this cheat. When you see a fish (he's behind the first brick you blow up), talk to him and select: 'Bubble Bubble?' 'How do you know that?' 'Are you an enchanted prince?' And accept his offer. You can now have infinite trips to the warp zone even without gems!

As soon as the intro sequence has finished and you are placed in control of the ship, just follow what the computer is doing until you reach your destination. The objective of three of the five missions is to change the blue dots on the outer circle of the map to red. This is achieved by reaching them. I have chosen the levels in order of ease.

CAROTID ARTERY: Stay in the top-left hand of the screen to avoid nearly all the enemy fire and circle the screen when you are fired at. When you finally go UP one of the junctions, stay at the bottom middle of the screen. Follow these directions when you reach a junction. You do not have to change the blue dots to red.

Format issues 53-55.
These contained our fabulous offer of an upgrade to Imagine 3.0 for £95. As it turns out, this is a saving of some £500! The offer is still open, but you need to apply with an original coupon, so check out our back issues on page 136.
Also this month, Jason Holborn joins our team.
I'm sure you have all heard of Jason, as the shameless swine has written for almost everyone. To get him settled gently, I let him cut his teeth on a handheld scanner round-up - check out the results in our five-page spectacular.
Obviously, the rest of the section is packed full of the usual top reviews and useful information.
Who said the Amiga was a spent force? Alick Veitch The contenders in our scanners round-up From left: the AlphaScan 800; the PowerScan Colour; the PowerScan 4; the AlphaColor and the AlphaScan Plus.
If a picture tells a thousand words, a hand scanner can write a lot faster than any of the guys on Amiga Format. Jason Holborn rounds up the latest contenders in our fantastic five-page special.
There are some pretty ingenious solutions to the age-old problem of how to obtain high-quality original artwork when you’ve got about as much artistic talent as a lightly salted peanut.
Graphics users have their video digitiser, and multimedia producers have PhotoCD, but what about the DTP or word processing fan? The answer, of course, lies in that miracle of hand-held technology, the humble hand scanner.
As any DTP user who has seen the light will tell you, hand scanners are a veritable god-send. These wondrous devices enable you to transfer photographs and other printed material on to your Amiga which can then be saved as standard IFF images ready to be pulled into your favourite DTP or word publishing program.
With most scanners you can also modify the images after you have scanned them by cropping them, scaling them, cleaning them up and generally improving and playing around with r them to suit your own requirements. Image processing tools that would give fully-pledged programs such as ADPro a run for their money are commonplace with hand-held scanners these days, giving you the ability to globally alter your scans: With the advancements that have been made in scanning hardware over the past couple of years, the quality of hand scanners is constantly improving.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that modem hand-held scanners are just poor relations to the much more expensive flatbed scanners which many professionals use - with resolutions of up to 800dpi and 262,000 colour scanning, hand-held scanners have come of age and are a viable alternative to the flatbeds.
They’re not just restricted to DTP work either - applications such as word processing, multimedia, and desktop video can benefit from the ability to get printed or hand-drawn pictures into your Amiga within moments. Over the next three pages we put the latest hand scanners to the test... Continued overleaf 4 Is there no end to Power Computing’s dominance of the hardware market? Not content with already leading the field in memory expansions, disk drives and various other bits and pieces, Power have something to offer scanner fans too in the shape of PowerScan 4.
Based around Power’s longstanding PowerScan product, this latest version features a new version of the scanner software that brings it bang up to date with developments in the Amiga’s Workbench.
"POWERSCAN 4 £119.95 H Power Computing 9 0234 273000 Like most of the scanners on test, PowerScan 4 uses a generic Trust scanner head that offers all the usual features - dpi settings between 100 and 400 and four modes of operation (one text mode and three dithered photo modes).
Power is supplied to the scanner via an external supply that connects to the Amiga’s supply. There’s also a built-in printer pass-through connector so you don’t have to unplug the interface unit every time you want to use your printer.
Using the PowerScan software couldn’t be easier. Once loaded, a swift click on the Scan gadget transports you to the Scanner Control menu where you alter the size of the area to be scanned, the resolution and the scanning mode.
If you have the Auto dpi setting turned on, PowerScan automatically detects the scanner’s dpi setting so all you have to do is to click on Scan Image and then scan away. The overall quality of scans is very good indeed with no glitches (especially at 400dpi) and plenty of contrast.
Once you’ve scanned your image, you can edit it using PowerScan’s impressive range of tools. For touching up images, PowerScan offers a number of Dpaint-like drawing tools, but for more global effects the program also boasts some impressive image processing tools so you can invert, rotate, flip, scale and crop your scan to suit your needs.
You can also darken or lighten a scan, smooth it and even convert it to an outline or a grey scale (up to 256 shades on an AGA machine).
PowerScan has always been an impressive scanning system and version 4 of the scanning software certainly isn’t going to do the product’s reputation any harm. The software is solid, reliable, feature- packed and easy to use. Combine this with the scanner’s high quality results and PowerScan is virtually flawless. Highly recommended.
If grey scale just isn’t good enough then you need a colour hand scanner such as the AlphaColor from Golden Image. Colour hand scanners are still a fairly recent development, so they’re nowhere near as finely tuned as mono hand scanners, but they do deliver scans of up to 262,000 colours!
I:xxx::xxx::x xxx::x:xcx»k Xxxxxx xxxx ALPHACOLOR £339 ¦ Golden Image UK Ltd H 081-365 1102 AlphaColor consists of a very hi- tech looking black scanner head, an interface box (this looks more like an external disk drive) which connects to the Amiga’s parallel port, and a trailing lead which supplies the unit with power from the Amiga’s disk drive port. Thankfully, both connectors have throughports so you can use your printer and a second drive while the scanner is connected.
As with the AlphaScan 800, Golden Image have been forced to write their own scanner driver software to handle the AlphaColor.
This is because Touch Up, the package they bundle with their standard AlphaScan Plus scanner, does not support colour.
Upon loading the scanner software you’re presented with a rather bleak-looking screen containing just six buttons that run along the top of the screen.
Obviously the first thing you’ll want to do is to scan something, but when you click on the Scan gadget, a requester pops up on to the screen informing you that you should wait two minutes for the scanner to warm up before attempting to scan anything. After two minutes of thumb twiddling, you can then start to scan your image.
Just like a mono scanner, AlphaColor scans in realtime - which means that as you drag the scanner head across the image it is shown (albeit in a slightly ‘dirtier’ form) on the screen. While scanning, the interface clicks to help you drag the scanner head smoothly and evenly across the page. Surprisingly, this' does actually seem to help.
My initial attempts with AlphaColor were disappointing, but a quick adjustment to the light level on the scanner started to produce some fairly good-quality scans. Even then, however, the quality of the scans left a lot to be desired.
Unfortunately, the price leaves a lot to be desired too - you could quite easily buy a complete video digitising set-up including a cheap monochrome video camera and copy stand, which would give you considerably better results, for roughly the same price.
Based Amiga (an A1200, for example) in order to scan at the maximum 800dpi resolution. If you're still using a 68000-based Amiga, you'll be happy to learn that you can still scan up to 600dpi.
Because of the increased resolution, Golden Image have had to develop their own software to support them. Programmed by Lin Fu Chang, the new software provides full support for 800dpi but is severely lacking in the image editing department.
In fact, there are no image editing tools, so you'll need a paint program to hand if you want to clean up your scans! The increased resolution is impressive but the quality of scans is not - even on my A3000, the scans were so ill-defined they were almost useless.
As the saying goes, DTP users need quality, not quantity! Just to make matters worse, the scanning software bundled with the unit is so limited that it is useless unless your scans are perfect. Let's hope that when 800dpi scanners become widely available, there will be better software to drive them.
The heart of a hand-held scanner set-up is the scanner head - the bit that you drag across the page with your hand. Most scanner manufacturers tend not to make their own scanner heads, but simply buy an existing one off the shelf. As a result, you'll find that although scanners from rival companies may use different interfaces and software, the scanner heads are often identical. However, the software can make all the difference to the end quality of your scans, so the head is not everything.
If you've ever wondered how a hand scanner works, then wonder no more. If you look at the underside of any hand scanner, you'll notice a clear perspex window at the front that stretches from one side of the scanner to the other.
Hidden behind this perspex window you should be able to see a line of little green LEDs and further back, a second line of what appear to be tiny black electronic cubes. These are in fact light-sensitive sensors that pick up the light from the LEDs that is reflected back at the scanner when it's dragged across the image.
As the scanner is dragged across your desk, the software builds up the image you see on your Amiga's screen by interpreting the varying levels of light reflected by the page you are scanning. As my old physics teacher used to say, the degree of light reflected is directly proportional to the colour or shade of the area being scanned - black reflects no light (so you get black on screen) and white reflects the light completely (resulting in white).
Colour hand scanners work in a slightly different way to mono scanners. Instead of a line of high-intensity green LEDs, colour hand scanners have a single fluorescent tube mounted into the scanner head that shines a very high intensity white natural light on to the subject that is being scanned.
The sensors inside the scanning head then sample the varying degrees of red, green and blue in the reflected white light. It's a bit like a video digitiser set up really, but the lights, digitiser and copy stand are all built into a hand held unit.
OCR SOFTWARE SCANNERS - HOW THEY WORK Several of the hand scanners on test are available with MiGraph OCR, an optical character recognition program designed to convert scanned text into ASCII files that can then be edited in any standard Amiga word processor.
This comes in particularly handy if you need to transfer printed text to your word processor but you can't face typing it all in.
Two versions of the MiGraph OCR program are available - a slightly cut down Junior version and the full package which retails for around £40 if bought separately. If you buy the program with a hand scanner you should be able to pick it up for as little as £20.
Using an OCR program is simple. You feed it scanned text in TIFF, IFF or IMG format and the program identifies each character by comparing the pixel patterns against a database of stored characters. When each character is identified, an ASCII text file is built up and saved to disk. The great thing about an OCR program is that you can teach it to identify new fonts by extending its database of character patterns.

After years of waiting.
Imagine 3 is here!
Will John Kennedy be rendered speechless?
Here’s one rendering package which has really caught the imagination of Amiga owners, and that’s Imagine. Rarely has an update been so eagerly anticipated, and not because of flaws in the original software, but because of the new features we’ve been promised.
Now, after years of anticipation, the new Imagine has finally arrived. The sneak preview of version 2.9 gave us some clues as to what was in store, but version 3.0 brings some pretty major enhancements.
GETTING STARTED The first thing you notice is the 350-page ring-bound manual - yes, a real manual with examples and an index that makes sense. Things have certainly changed.
The multiple editor approach is still used: objects are created in one editor, given textures and brushmaps in another, then animated and rendered in yet another. It sounds complicated, but it’s not - it’s sensible, and it works well.
The Stage Editor is where the different objects which make up scenes are placed, and to speed up the process there have been several enhancements.
First of all the addition of ‘layers’ means objects can be stored in the same scene, but not be seen or rendered until their particular layer is activated. When there is a lot of redrawing going on, this multiple dimension system works well.
The biggest change, though, is to the traditional quad-view screen layout. As ever, there are front, top and side views of the object, but now the isometric (3D) view has been massively updated. It’s possible to control all aspects of this view, as well as actually move objects around in it.
For example, there are now real-time camera views. All scenes have a ‘camera’ object present and you can picture yourself standing where the camera is, looking in the same direction. The image that’s rendered is the view from this point. My favourite new feature is the way this view is updated in real time as you move the camera around in the other views. It really gives you a feel for your virtual world.
- - Itft I - H I t-.".' c ' I t - . ..A- ¦ 1 isfjjjjA if iiiiiiB
awwwBrt ¦ - - - «si riWiHmm mmm MHO The new Bones feature means
organic shapes can be animated in smooth, realistic ways.
Objects are simply built around a skeleton.
DEM BONES, DEM DRY BONES One of the most interesting new features to be found in Imagine 3 is called Bones. This enables you to create objects in such a way that they depend on an internal axis, or bone, for their shape.
For example, a hand contains several bones in each finger, all joined together in the palm. By moving the bone nearest the hand, the entire finger moves and the object around the bone stretches and moves with it.
Designing objects in this way is tricky, but the effects are worth it.
When animated this way, real-life objects (hands, animals... even entire people) appear much smoother and less mechanical simply because the objects are designed around bones.

881 iiSgi mm mm TrZm -i Large scenes that incorporate digitsed images, like this one, do work very well, but you have to be prepared to wait a long time for them to render. This picture took two hours on an Amiga with a 68030 chip and FPU.
SAVE £500 WITH AMIGA FORMATl This new Imagine will cost you £599 to buy, but you can get it for just £75 if you have a copy of Amiga Format issue 53! As well as giving away Imagine 2 for practically nothing, we also had a special upgrade offer that you can still take advantage of - just so long as you have the original, official order form. There are also order forms in copies of AF54 and AF55 with which you can buy Imagine 3 for only £95, so either of these issues is ifow worth £500 - what an amazing magazine!
Other enhancements include the addition of guide lines from the camera and from light sources, to help you make sure the camera is pointing the right way.
NEW TEXTURES One feature that still makes Imagine special in a market flooded with similar programs is its ability to use procedural textures. The texture of an object defines how it looks, and a procedural texture is a mathematical algorithm used to control this appearance.
Imagine comes with more than 100 different textures for you to play with, and each one offers tremendous opportunities for image making.
Some of the more interesting textures include HoneyComb, Iris, TieDye, Concrete, DinoSkin, Leather and Blast - all the names are more or less self-explanatory - and there’s even an effect called BeamMeUp, designed to imitate a Star Trek transporter effect.
There are so many textures, and so many options to each, that each one can trigger your imagination all over again as you experiment.
A big surprise for me was discovering that several textures specifically designed for light sources have been included. It’s now possible to add a Venetian Blind effect to an image, just by applying the relevant texture.
Other new effects enable you to create light beams, which make laser effects and lighthouses easy to create and animate.
Previous versions placed a limit on the number of textures and brushmaps which could be applied to an Imagine object. Now all limits have gone, and the list of textures can be as long as your arm, if you wish.
The downside is that the new textures are heavily dependent on really tricky maths, and so will only work if you have an FPU (Floating Point Unit) in your Amiga.
If your A1200 memory card doesn’t have one fitted, now is the time to get one.
Continued overleaf "4 see. For example, each time you select a backdrop image you can now use a file requester to find it. It’s a little thing, but it used to drive me mad in version 2.0. On the other hand, most of the program remains the same. You still need a backdrop image which is the same size as the image you are rendering, and perhaps worst of all, there is still no attempt to use a standard Amiga ‘style-guide compliant’ interface. Quick Render still crashes on my Amiga, and finding fonts which work properly is still tricky.
Some of the features that have been promised for version 3 in previous leaks and whispers from Impulse have failed to appear, but they might yet come along - so if you are in a hurry to get them you might be interested in the new Constant Update policy. By registering (and paying a fee, of course) you can be sure of at least four upgrades during the year.

SPEED §§•§ Rendering speeds are acceptable, but high resolution images with lots of textures, or animations, take ages.
MANUAL A vast improvement: comprehensive, readable, with plenty of examples.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • As more features are added, imagine is getting more difficult for beginners.
More examples on disk would help.
WHAT IS 3D RENDERING?
In a 3D rendering program such as Imagine all the really hard work is carried out for you by the software - unlike a paint package, if you want to draw a house with Imagine, you create a 3D model by joining together rectangles, triangles, spheres and other primitive shapes: a bit like Lego.
You then give each shape a surface texture, add some lights and perhaps a backdrop picture. Then you ask the software to render the image. Depending on the complexity of the model, and the speed of the Amiga, this process can take from minutes to hours, but the end result is a detailed picture.
With care and a high enough resolution, the image can look almost like a photograph. The terrific thing about rendering is that once you have built the model you can view it from any angle - so making an animation of a view moving through a house is actually quite easy. All that is required is a sketched path for the camera to follow. The resulting frames can be viewed like any standard Amiga animation.
* RENDER CHANGES Some of the most impressive changes are hidden
away in sub-menus and effects requesters. At last, Imagine has
a powerful lens flare feature which gives convincing halos of
light similar to those which appear when you use a real camera
to take pictures into the sun. Flare is applied after the
image has been rendered, and likewise a new Haze filter can be
used to cause a particular colour to blur or glow.
There is also a Depth Of Field operator, although as documentation is limited to an obscure text file on the program disk, it will take time to master this particular effect. Particle effects have been added to make modelling snow or water droplets possible, and an entirely new editor is present for creating smooth Spline curves.
Support for the AGA chip set is now standard. Images can also be produced for the OpalVision card and Impulse’s own FireCracker card. However, the lack of an Arexx port means that owners of other video cards will still need to render images out as 24-bit IFFs and reload them. Imagine is still lacking in flexibility compared with programs like Real 3D v2.
GENERAL NEW TOUCHES There are plenty of nice touches that dedicated Imagineers will be delighted to A FORCE TO RECKON WITH It’s going to take a very long time indeed to explore all the features of Imagine 3.0. What’s more, you are going to need a very fast Amiga if you intend to live long enough to see all the new features.
It’s not that Imagine 3 is slow - it’s actually a bit faster than earlier versions - but there are so many features you will always find that there is ‘just one more new thing’ that needs to be added to your scene. The end result is an image that always takes too long to render.
To be honest, I feel that the 25Mhz 68030 in my Amiga isn’t good enough, and I’ve started saving for something faster.
Imagine 3 isn’t a quantum leap from previous versions. It has an entire truckload of new features, and the new Bones feature in particular is going to excite a good many 3D animators.
Current Imagine users would be well advised to upgrade immediately, because they will find the enhancements extremely welcome. If you are considering getting into image rendering for the first time, you will have to consider the other options: Real 3D v2 is an exceptional program, and LightWave is one of the best rendering systems ever - if you can afford it.
Imagine has developed a cult following, and this release shows that Impulse are still a force to be reckoned with when it comes to computer graphics.
FEATURES •••• Plenty of new facilities - over a hundred textures, and an exciting new way of animating organic shapes.
VALUE itii Imagine 2 users should upgrade as soon as possible.

2 Choose Add Effect with the button and a new entry will appear in the event list.
3 Click on the image icon. You can now select a picture from memory, or load a new one.
A few years ago, at the Multimedia show, Commodore were showing off the CDTV with one of their own software titles. Called CD Remix, all it did was enable the lucky user to take an audio CD and resequence bits of any individual track.
Surprisingly though, it was incredibly popular. So popular, in fact, that CD Remix was one of the top-selling CDTV packages of all. Obviously, people who buy CD-ROM machines like playing around with audio Cds.
At least, that’s what Almathera must be hoping anyway, with the launch of Video Creator, the first ‘serious’ program for the CD32. Again, the idea behind it is very simple. Essentially, it enables the user to play audio tracks at the same time as they are displaying any Amiga graphics, animations or text.
This means that you can take one of your favourite tracks (say Thin Lizzy’s The Boys Are Back In Town) and near enough create your own video for it. So, apart from controlling the audio playback (which is actually incredibly easy on the CD32) the software has to be able to sequence the display, showing stills, text or whatever, at the right moment. This is an operation quite akin to a multimedia presentation, so it’s no real surprise that the design of the system looks rather similar to the likes of Scala and Mediapoint.
The main screen where the work is done is just a sequence list. A bar across the top shows where the sequences are placed on a time line. The events themselves are displayed in a list below this.
Each event consists of a screen, a number, a description, an associated effect and a time entry. The screens can be any Amiga IFF or GIF image you like, except HAM or EHB. Hundreds of images are provided on the disk, including some very useful backdrops and bizarre clipart. Most of the pictures are oriented towards rave- style music, which is probably just as well, because I imagine that not many people are going to want to make an Amiga generated video for Val Doonican’s Greatest Hits, or ‘laughing’ Leonard Cohen.
CD32 isn't just a games machine, or at least that's what Almathera are out to prove with their stylish new software.
Nick Veitch makes easy work of some colourful effects.
Obviously, if you want to use your own images, you will have to have some way of loading them in. This is one of the drawbacks of the CD32 - you will need to expand your system before you can use your own material. However, there is quite enough on the disc for you to be getting on with and update discs are planned for the future.
As well as standard pictures, your image could be a 3D vector, some text or an animation. Examples of these are also stored on the disc, and Almathera will provide details on the file formats used if you ask them nicely.
To play back your video, all the images, animations, and so on, that you use will have to be pre-loaded into memory. This causes another problem with the CD32 - there isn’t enough memory. You can only load in about 20 images before the memory gauge takes on a red tinge.
The effects themselves are pretty good, Almathera claim that Video Creator supports the White Book MPEG standard. In this case any Amiga generated graphics would appear over the top of the MPEG display. The audio track would need to come from the MPEG player as well, but this could still be useful for adding effects to rock videos and the like.
Unfortunately, it was impossible to test this feature, due to the lack of White Book standard MPEG Cds (the CD-i ones will not work), but given Almathera's track record, there is unlikely to be any problem with it.
4 Now you have an image, it's time to add an effect. There are plenty to choose from.
5 All you need to do is sequence the effect to the music. It's as easy as pressing a button.
String together several events and you could be on the Chart Show. Here's one we made earlier.
And there are enough of them so that things don’t get too repetitive. Fades, flashes, shuffles, sneaky palette effects - they’re all there. Some of them may take a bit of time to master, but fortunately there are plenty of example sequences supplied on the disk, so it’s quite easy to pick up how they all work.
The effects can easily be synchronised to the music too. You can play the track, then press a key to place the effect at just the right place. This works surprisingly well, assuming you have any reflexes to speak of.
When all is done, you can save out your video. Obviously, with a standard CD32 you have nowhere useful to save it to, but Video Creator does support Parnet, Floppy drives, or in fact any logical Amiga DOS device, so if you have any sort of CD32 expansion, it will be utilised.
In the final analysis, this is Scala Mediapoint for Cds. The effects are good, the examples are fine, it’s just a shame about the CD32. Well done Almathera, I expect the next version will have even more effects, the ability to group events, and lots more besides.
MAKING MOVIES ON LOCATION THE VC WAY The time line at the top lets you know exactly where your effects are placed.
Each event has an associated screen, which could be an IFF, a vector object or even some text.
All the effects have associated icons to aid quick identification in a crowded event list.
These timings let you know when the event actually happens. They automatically update when events are moved around.
Every event is given a number to identify it and a comment to make it easy to find things.
At any time you can listen to the music track. A line will pass along the time-line at the top so you can get a fair idea about how your video will sync up.
Synchronise allows you to precisely time your effect with the music.
Clicking here will flip to a special screen to place the current event.

Mork;Music Bars&Pipes Professianal Exanple Songs Brandenburg Beno.song No sooner does Music-X 2 hit the streets than the top-end of the Amiga MIDI market gets another upgrade pack. Maff Evans tinkers with the new contender.
Being rather generous, AF has already given you two MIDI sequencing packages on the Coverdisk. But some techno- hungry MIDI musicians will want even more power and flexibility than Music-X and SuperJAM! - hence the existence of top-end professional-level sequencers such as KCS 3.5 and Bars & Pipes Pro.
View your MIDI data as it is played to keep tabs on all the events using the new Alist tool. And you can do this both in the input and the output pipelines.
On top of this there’s also that technology buzz word - multimedia. These days it’s not enough to just be a musician - you have to be able to drive video and animation as part of your electronic performance. This is where Bars & Pipes Pro 2.0 really hit the mark. Not only did it offer a wide range of extremely powerful writing and editing tools, it also enabled you to include multimedia information (using the Media Madness accessory).
But there’s always some people who say: “Ah, but wouldn’t it be good if it did...” and “I need a tool that can...” Enter Bars & Pipes Professional version 2.5. The basic form of the program hasn’t changed. It’s still based around a (very colourful) series of windows, each holding a particular area of recording or editing.
However, there are a few changes to the system, mainly in the way in which the edit windows work. The code has been tweaked and optimised so that MIDI edits are quicker and more fluid, removing many of the “What’s it doing now?” cries when yet another Please Wait message appears.
Other functions have been made easier to control, such as SMPTE location points, alphabetical tool panels (so you’re not scrambling through a mixed-up list to find what you want), a larger patch-edit window and window hotkeys for scrolling around. But it’s more the new items which make the upgrade, and these are mainly in the toolbox department.
Alist is a very welcome addition, giving you a window showing all the MIDI ® a ® fp fH E3 C3 Guitarists will be happy to see that MIDI data can be controlled and affected using a guitar-based mapping system.
A series of new controls can be found in the toolbox for even more powerful editing.
Events passing through the tool. You can either place it on the input pipeline to check your keyboard input or in the output pipeline to see what the sequence track is up to - a good way to check if your MIDI messages are getting to the right place.
Auto_Mix is an automated mixer system designed to run alongside the Mix Maestro panel. Rather than directly affecting the levels of MIDI instruments, Auto_Mix is a controller for automating MIDI-controlled hardware mixers (such as the Mackie 1604 or Fostex DCM100).
You can record movements, mutes and solo selections directly into a track using this tool and use that track to directly control an external mixer via MIDI. For the most part this is a top-end tool only, since there aren’t many users who can afford an automated mixer. It doesn’t quite offer the control of something like Steinberg’s mixer controller or the Automix function in KCS 3.5 (although it’s close), but it’s a good feature to have access to.
Drum Key is a neat tool for playing in drums or checking sounds on a synth module, which basically turns your Amiga’s keyboard into a keyboard or set of drum pads. You can configure each key to a MIDI note, so that you can set up triggers that are most comfortable for you.
Guitar is a weird tool, mainly aimed at those who prefer instruments of the stringed variety to the old ivories. It’s basically a controller for using B & P Pro’s tabulature mode (which displays tracks in guitar format). Using this you can keep track of inputs in fret formation, design chord patterns and even provide strum effects to make your synth guitar lines more realistic. Previously, the only way to get this kind of effect either involved careful programming or the purchase of something like the MIDIBusker SMF disk.
Key Finder is a time-saving panel which lists chords and scales that fit with a chosen key. It won’t create tunes, but it may help out the less technical musician.
Logic is a system for merging sequencer tracks. Three modes are available: Exclusion removes any data from the second track which is a duplicate of that found in the first track; Intersection keeps data that is the same in both tracks; and ** The code has been Union merges two tracks, removing duplicated data to are quicker and more avoid flamming. F|uid and functions So there s a lot tiiprp to holt on to easier to control optimised - MIDI edits your system, but there are a couple of things that Bars & Pipes Pro could have done with. For a start there’s the aforementioned lack of a pat
tern-based arrangement system. This a common feature on many sequencers (particularly the industry standard Cubase for the ST, Mac and PC and the Amiga’s own Music-X), so why not here?
The other omission is any kind of extension to the way Amiga samples are implemented. This is quite a fiddly area on Bars & Pipes and could well be made simpler. Perhaps Blue Ribbon don’t expect You can fade notes together and create an automatic overlap with the Legato tool to make your melodies sound more fluid.
Many purchasers of a £300 sequencer to be triggering samples, but there are quite a few who do use this particular technique (myself included).
When it comes down to it, the big question is: ‘Does the balance between new tools, a complex editing system and a few omissions weigh up to £300-worth of software?’ In honesty I’d have to say... well, maybe not.
Music-X 2 isn’t quite as powerful, but it’s faster and much easier to use, has a better Arrange system and has much better Amiga sample support for almost £100 less. However, for multimedia and sheer editing power Bars & Pipes Pro 2.5 is probably the package which will sit well in more high-grade studios.
Personally, I wouldn’t spend another £70 on upgrading from 2.0 to 2.5, but whether this is worthwhile really depends on how much you want the extras mentioned on these review pages. Hmm. £70 is still a lot, though. The final new tool is Legato, which automatically creates sustained lines and overlaps to make your melodies sound fluid. It’s a strange tool, but maybe someone will find a use for it. After all, just slapping this effect on a melody could be a bit over the top. It’s best used for pad lines (such as strings) rather than riffs, simply because of the continuous, moving feel that
it gives a sequence.
Two other major additions are a Loop mode and the Logic accessory. Loop enables you to loop areas of a song (in addition to the A-B-A pattern format), so you can set repeats rather than having to cut and paste large sections. I’d have preferred to have a pattern-based edit system (similar to Music-Xs Play Sequence function or Cubase s Arrange Window), so that blocks can be bolted together as needed.
This way, you still need lengthy tracks of MIDI data for the arrangement. A memory-hungry and time-consuming process.

What’s more, TBCPlus coupled with the Amiga is more than just an infinite window time base corrector: it’s also a transcoder, multi-standard decoder, 24-bit two-field frame-grabber, process amplifier, broadcast-quality encoder, real-time special effects generator, keyer and synchronising switcher.
In fact it’s so flexible that it can handle just about anything, from tasks as simple and mundane as ‘tidying up’ home video copies to tasks as complex and demanding Continued overleaf 4 If a picture paints a thousand words, then you could well argue that a properly produced video paints a thousand pictures. To do GVP’s TBCPlus justice we’d need to write at least a video’s worth of words - it’s really that good - and, unfortunately, we simply don’t have the space.
Even attempting to list the features and benefits of this fabulous new piece of equipment would take up more pages than we have available for this whole review.
So I’m afraid what we’ll have to do is concentrate on the main elements - explaining what timebase errors are and why you might need a Time Base Corrector (TBC) to help you solve them.
WHY TBC?
In order to ensure perfect jitter-free video signals, Video Tape Recorder (VTR) mechanisms would have to run at a perfectly constant speed. Because of the mechanical nature of tape transport mechanisms, which involves spinning video heads and the intimate contact of video tape on the head, fluctuations occur.
These fluctuations lead to timing errors which, when the original tape is copied during the editing process, are replicated and amplified by the recording deck’s own mechanical timebase error properties. This unfortunate situation can lead to all sorts of maladies, varying from visible jitter to jagged edges.
In a worst-case scenario, the whole thing can even degenerate into a horrible picture-rolling mess.
A Time Base Corrector ‘fixes’ these timing errors, ensuring rock-steady jitter- free pictures. It works by digitising the incoming video signal a frame at a time, stripping the signal of its original synchronisation pulses and replacing them with those generated by the TBCs internal sync generator. It is this process that gives a computer-controlled TBC so much control over the output signal, stability and final look of the picture.
Older TBCs could only digitise and clean up a few lines of a frame at a time.
Want to get accurate, professional results from your videos?
A new gadget from GVP could help, as Steve McGill explains.
The TBCPlus is what’s known as an ‘infinite window’ Time Base Corrector, which means that not only can it grab a whole frame at a time - consisting of 625 lines (for a European PAL TV picture) or 525 lines (for the American NTSC system)
- but also that it can adjust the timing errors in the frame and
do the whole thing in real time, running at 25 or 30 frames
every second.
WHO MIGHT NEED IT?
TV studio personnel, media students, videographers and video artists (aspiring, potential and actual) should all take especial note of the TBCPlus. Equipment Plus Third and fourth generation copies can look blurred, degraded and tired. There is, however, a way to tidy them up and improve them... You can actually use a Sharpness filter applied across all the frames to sharpen them up with the help of the TBCPlus. You know it makes sense!
Posterisatlon of images can give a video sequence a distinctive look and feel. Stamp your identity on your work with the TBCPlus.

TRANSCODING: A composite video signal is decoded into Luminance (Y) and Chrominance (C) and digitised using the international digital studio standard CCIR-601, more commonly known as D1. D1 is a hroadcast-quality signal (a digital component video signal that utilises 4:2:2 sampling, so four samples of the Luminance channel are taken for every two of the Chrominance channel's (U) and (V) components). D1 is known as the king of all formats due to its flexibility and easy integration in a broadcasting environment.
TWO USEFUL OPTIONAL ADD-ONS PROCESSING AMPLIFIER (PROC-AMP): Normally an expensive piece of equipment in its own right, the Proc-Amp adjusts the elements of the output signal (Hue, Brightness, Contrast and Saturation). Errors in the picture, such as an incorrect white balance setting, can be adjusted using the panel and sliders.
FRAME GRABBING: A full 24-bit frame can be grabbed from any video source at any time and loaded into a paint package or image processor, then manipulated as the user sees fit. This option alone makes the TBCPIus worth the asking price.
4* as providing broadcast-quality pictures to a television studio with ‘keying’ and automated, time-coded editing.
And it doesn’t stop there. The rear panel of the card boasts inputs and outputs to enable house synching and VTR servo locking. These features ensure absolute synchronisation with external video equipment, which in turn enables simple, seamless, jitter-free A B switching, which is a must for A B roll editing and multi-camera studio shoots. Optional extra goodies to look forward to include an EBU SMPTE time code generator and a digital comb filter.
MINOR NIGGLES Unfortunately, there are a couple of criticisms that have to be addressed regarding the construction and physical make-up of the board.
Plug-in Time Base Correctors inevitably suffer from their proximity to other cards sharing the same power supply. During testing, some cross interference was noted on the TBCPIus’ DIGITAL COMB FILTER: To improve the quality of a composite video signal, this filter splits the Composite video source into separate Chroma and Luma signals thus allowing processing of the signal as if it were a true Y C input. This results in a better-quality output signal.
Output. This could have been due to noise from the RAM card plugged in below the TBCPIus. At the time of writing, we’re still trying to isolate the fault.
The other criticism concerns the method of connecting the various inputs and outputs to the card: it’s achieved via a multi-interface cable. With the numerous swappings of cable and equipment connections that takes place in a desktop video environment, it’s doubtful that the cable will be sturdy enough.
It’s understandable that this type of cable has been supplied considering the limited space available at the rear of the Amiga, but something more durable will have to be implemented.
Despite the gripes, there’s no doubting that the TBCPIus puts the power of an DISTRIBUTOR Silica Systems 081-309 1111 PRICE SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Amiga 2000, 3000 or 4000.
SPEED ••••• It corrects video frames in real time.
MANUAL •••• Well laid-out. Skimpy in parts due to the enormity of the subject matter.
ACCESSIBILITY ••• § Easy to install and use - you should have it running in 20 minutes.
FEATURES ••••• Absolutely packed. It is the core component of 'something wonderful'.
SMPTE EBU TIME CODING: VITC (Vertical Interval Time Code) and LTC (Longtitudinal Time Code) can be read and written. Combine this with Arexx scripts and a controller like Edit Mate, and automated frame-accurate editing and lip synching could be yours.
Extremely flexible broadcast television studio into the hands of the creative Amiga owner. It is a core and essential building block of a fully automated digital video suite. When you compare this with the equivalent video equipment, it’s worth more than the combined price of a TBCPIus and Amiga 2000, 3000 or 4000.
With the emerging cable TV revolution and the inevitable vacuum in programming quality, anyone with a TBCPlus-equipped Amiga, a Hi-band video camera and some good ideas could easily find themselves producing or starring in TV programmes of the future.
Give yourself a headstart in the cutthroat arena of tomorrow’s tele-video market - tool up with a TBCPlus-enhanced Amiga today. Qp VALUE ••••• Considering what it does, it's excellent value, even when you add the cost of buying an Amiga.
“ Excepting the Video Toaster, this is the most exciting video peripheral available.

I enclose a cheque PO made payable to Software First or please debit my Access Visa: Postcode ITEM_ ITEM_ ITEM_ Expiry Date: DJ.l I Whatever you use your Amiga for, a hard disk drive is one of those must-have add-ons which make your machine more efficient and more pleasing to use.
Programs load faster, Workbench is permanently on tap and all your favourite programs are just a mouse click away.
If you need a hard disk for your A1200 but can't quite face the trauma of having to fit one yourself, Jason Holborn and Zappo may be able to help you.
The Smart Stor drive has all the benefits of a conventional hard drive, but none of the hassle of fitting it - you can just plug in and go.
But like most things in life, there’s always a negative side - fitting a hard drive to an A600 or A1200 is not a job for the faint-hearted. Unless you’re skilled with a screwdriver and don’t mind invalidating your warranty, fitting a hard drive involves the sort of open-heart surgery that can reduce even the most confident Amiga user to a cold sweat.
And if something goes wrong during the operation, you’d better brace yourself for a big bill... A500 owners never had to suffer this sort of heartache - fitting a hard drive to their machine was as simple as plugging in a printer cable. Realising the hassles of modern hard drives, Indi have gone back to basics with their new offering, the Zappo Smart Stor.
The Smart Stor is a small black wedge- shaped box which fits into the palm of your hand yet has all the benefits of an IDE hard drive - without the hassle.
Instead of relying on direct connection to the IDE controller inside an A600 or A1200, the Smart Stor is connected via the much-maligned PCMCIA credit card slot on the left-hand side of the machine.
What’s more, you don’t even need a power supply for the drive, because it draws its power directly from the host machine.
One small gripe is the rather meagre size of the drives - currently Indi offer the Smart Stor with 20 or 30Mb of memory.
SMART STOR PLUS If a 30Mb hard drive simply isn't big enough for your needs, then Indi have something to offer you in the shape of the Smart Stor Plus, a slightly modified version of the Smart Stor that makes use of the larger 3.5-inch IDE drives that are often used by PC compatibles, as opposed to the
2. 5-inch drives used with the Amiga.
Although the Smart Stor Plus is a bulkier unit, that fact that it uses the larger 3.5-inch PC IDE drive means Indi can offer higher-capacity versions of the Smart Stor at the lowest possible price. Although prices are still to be confirmed, Indi are hoping to sell a 130Mb version for £249.95 and a massive 340 Mb version for £349.95. The lack of a PCMCIA pass-through is a bit of a bind too, especially if you’re an A600 owner who uses a PCMCIA memory card.
Once the Smart Stor is connected, all you need to do to get up and running is to switch on your Amiga and the drive is instantly recognised. Indi format the drive for you but you do have to install the contents of your Workbench disks before you can realistically boot from the Smart Stor.
Indi provide a utilities disk with the Smart Stor which contains a number of utilities to automate transferring your Workbench disks on to the drive and, if the unthinkable happens, it even enables you to set up your drive from scratch.
The drive performs well. Considering the rather slow nature of the PCMCIA slot, the transfer rate between the drive and the Amiga is very high indeed. In fact, the loading speed from the Smart Stor seems faster than an internal IDE drive.
Couple this speed with the obvious convenience of a hard drive that can be unplugged from one Amiga and plugged into another without having to go through a complicated set-up procedure, and you’ve got a storage medium that is fast, easy to use and portable.
Although I wouldn't recommend such a practice, there’s no reason why you couldn’t unplug the Smart Stor from your Amiga, chuck it into your coat pocket and then take it around to your friend’s house for use on their Amiga.
Smart Stor may not be the most revolutionary product ever to grace the Amiga but for its highly impressive price tag and the sheer convenience of being able to plug in and go, the Smart Stor deserves to do very well indeed. For the faint-hearted everywhere, Smart Stor is definitely well worth investigating.

Our man Richard Baguley, the one we call Baggers (when we're feeling charitable), casts his net into the deep, clear waters of the Public Domain and hauls in a catch of top new games and utilities.
You can play Gravity Force 2 either as a standard shoot- em-up, or you can choose the race option.
Life is a funny thing. Especially when you get three of them. I mean, you don’t get that in real life, do you? To make things even more confusing, your aim in Gravity Force 2 (Online PD) is to take them away from your opponent. What’s more, you start off with five of them, and you can even have more if you want. Sigh.
Philosophical musings aside, this is a two- player shoot-em-up. It’s apparently the sequel to another game, but I don’t remember it. Too young, probably.
Anyway, the idea is that each player has to fly around any one of a number of landscapes shooting the other one. This is slightly complicated by the gravitational pull, which means that your ship plunges to its doom if you don’t apply a bit of judicious thrust every now and then. Gravity also applies to your bullets, so you should be careful when you’re shooting upwards.
It’s a bit difficult to get the hang of, especially because you fire by moving the joystick up and thrust by pressing fire. As well as the gladiatorial combat, you can race your opponent over a variety of courses and also shoot the hell out of him, her or it if you feel the urge to do so. Fun in a completely politically unsound sort of way.
All this philosophical pondering brings us nicely on to Stars And Galaxies (£5.50 from the Central Licenseware Register), which is a three- disk Licenceware voyage around the known universe, stopping off at such interesting places as the Spiral Galaxy Ml00 and the Black hole which is thought to orbit the star HDE226868. Stars And Galaxies uses a hypertext system, which means that you can access other parts of the package by clicking on highlighted words or buttons. For instance, a section on how stars are born allows you to look at an image of a protostar by clicking on the button. The
text is reasonably well written, although it is a little bit dense at times.
Stars And Galaxies comes on three disks, two of which are filled with various astronomical images Continued overleaf 4 oj Lys istrata:Texts LYSISTRRTR1 (line 251 of 594, 51X) LYS: Good, fill I ask is that you abstain totally Frew bedding your nen, He mist deprive then of all sex, Stop! Where are you going?
Hby do you turn away?
Why the baleful eyes, the trending lips, the Mostly pallor?
Answer ne now, will you or won't you?
MYR: Never! Let the war rage on,?
Kfll: Inpossible, you ask too high a price, LYS! But Kalonike, you said you'd cut yourself in two To bring peace.?
The wonders of the universe are manifold, and the Hubble space telescope is sending back lovely images.
Stars And Galaxies is not going to win any prizes, but it's a pretty good beginning for any astronomer.
Lysistrata sounds like it should be some sort of life- threatening bacteria, but it's a Greek play.
All aliens deserve to die. Especially when they are trying to drop bombs on my head in Overlander. The game is a clone of the old coin-op game Moon Buggy, and although it's good, it doesn't match Deluxe Galaga.
and diagrams. It’s a pretty good package which contains a lot of useful information, although the presentation leaves something to be desired.
Backgrounds. The play is held on disk as a standard text file, so you could print it out, but you should remember that it isn’t PD so you can’t distribute it further. There’s also some background information on the play and the playwright. It’s good to see the Amiga being used for such diverse purposes as presenting ancient Greek plays, and I’m sure that Aristophanes would be an Amiga user if he was around today.
Paranormal Investigations (Immediate Arts) is a disk mag which concentrates on subjects such as UFOs, reincarnation, the Loch Ness monster and why people still use Sts. It’s on two disks, but the first one is a boot disk which can be used for all future issues. It’s done in AmigaGuide format, and the text is liberally spiced with highlighted buttons which bring up images associated with the text.
The Greeks were great ones for looking up into the skies and pondering, except when they were watching bawdy comedies. Spookily enough, our next disk The Lysistrata Of Aristophanes (£2.50 from Immediate Arts) is a translation of Aristophanes’ play Lysistrata, which is about how the women of Greece refused to sleep with their husbands until they stopped making war. It was translated from the Greek by James Morrison, a noted Scottish poet and playwright.
Aristophanes was the Benny Hill of his day, and the poem is filled with rude jokes and smutty puns. Reading the text on screen is not easy, but it’s pretty nicely presented, with several digitised leaita I Ten More 1.lives to KgtWHbB, _ : . : Contents I I Help I BetPaeg 1 A1 Ien_Mope_Mw£S_to_ReiiC«ber Madane J, a soldiep's wife and Mother of one child, uas dolicate in health and as a gie-1 had 'hated history'. She uas regressed by Cttlortol de Rochas I to IB previous s lives, sone extreselv detailed.
In tho first she died at eight Months. She then lived as a girl naned IrIsee in the country of the Inondo near Treitse. She next becane a nan, Estus, aged 48, elm uas planning to kill Ewperor Probus | in revenge for taking his daughter, Fiorina.
The fourth life uas that of Carionee, a Frankish warrior chieftain captured by 8ttila at Chatons-sur-Harne In Bb, 449. Abbess Martha foltouedn born in Bb 923, who tyrannised young girls In a Vincennes conuent as, late as 1818. The Bbbess uas succeeded by Mariette Martin, aged 18 In 1388, daughter of a nan who worked for the king-'le beau Philippe'.
Hadane J. then becane Michel Berry, uho uas killed at the age of 22 in 1513 at the Battle of Pariooano I. This life was ext r ewe I v detailed, Michel's career developing iron his learning the art of fencing at 18, through his life as a page at the courts at Versa*ties and the Sorbonne an» sundry lovo affairs to his presence aged 28 at the Battle of Ouinegattc *n Hornandv. Lifter an eighth life as a ulfe and nether aged 38 in 1782, H»dan» J again becane a no«, Jules Robert. Juies uas aged 38 in 1776 and a 'bad worker in narble. Nevertheless one of his sculptures reached the Vatican.
Jules Robert reincarnated as Marguerite Buchesne, born in 1835, daughter of a grocer in the rue de la Caserne, Briancon. She uenbto school in the rue de la Gargauilte. Research showed that the school existed, hut there had newer been a grocer buchesne in the rue de la Caserne, otherwise Madane J's description of places uas accurate.
S: i • I i.«a For instance, the article on reincarnation in the picture at the bottom of this page has various images of the supposed previous incarnations of the subject. Unfortunately, most of these images have been somewhat shoddily scanned, and don’t really add that much to the magazine. Apart from this, there are a variety of’interesting pieces, and for £2 an issue, it’s good value.
The only mystery about MovieGuide (OnLine PD) is why it took so long for somebody to come up with the idea for a program like this. It’s a comprehensive and useful database of films, with about 14,000 entries.
You can search through these under a variety of categories, including title, director or cast.
Wildcard searches are also possible, so you can search for every film with Parameterisation in the title, or every film directed by noted director Ralph Scoggins.
It’s fairly easy to use, and the programmers (Simon Ravn and Svend Erik Poulsen) have done a good job of making the search fast. A search for all films directed by Spielberg (21 in this database) took 23 seconds on an A3000. Basic details about the films, such as year, length, country and category, are stored but there is no critical review.
Unfortunately, it's not bug free. MovieGuide repeatedly crashed my Amiga when I exited the program, which was irritating to say the least.
I wasn’t able to pin down the exact problem, but it did seem to be the fault of the program. Apart from this minor problem, it’s an excellent program which would be very useful for the film student or video buff.
Most classic coin-ops have made their way into the Public Domain in one way or another, but Overlander (17 Bit) is the first conversion of Moon Buggy that I’ve seen. The idea is to drive your buggy over a scrolling landscape which is filled with holes and lumps. Jump the former and blast the latter into moon dust and you’re off.
Every now and then a pair of aliens fly over you and attempt to bomb you, but you can also fire upwards, so that’s no problem. There are a variety of levels ranging from beginner (not many obstacles) to expert (more obstacles and aliens than you can shake a laser at).
It’s not the greatest conversion of a coin-op I’ve ever seen (that title belongs to the very wonderful Deluxe Galaga), but it’s not at all bad, although the collision detection is somewhat unforgiving. Programmer Mark Sheeky has done a good job of capturing the feel of the original in all its early Eighties glory. ® TOP 1© GAMES ARID UTILITIES Every month we peruse the bestseller lists of a prominent PD company.

VISA ? ACCESS ? CHEQUE ? PO’s ? _____ ____ ___1 What have a
squirrel called Amy, the Renault Twingo, and Beavis And
Butt-Head got in common? We don't know either, but young
Stephen Bradley says he's got the answer... Not an everyday
sight, a squirrel beating up an Amiga with a spanner. Sparky
little minx has gone nuts. Amy, for that is the squirrel's
name, is just one of the Schwartz characters on Girls Of
Eric.
Summer is upon us, Christmas was only yesterday and it’s nearly Autumn. Spring was last week. But the Demonstration Zone remains as solid as a rock, impervious to that most fickle of beasts, the seasonal cycle. Ahem, so off we go with the - some might say - enticingly-monikered Girls Of Eric (Telescan). Not the lasses of Messrs Cantona, Idle or Morecambe, rather those of the famous animator Schwartz.
This, however, is not an animation but a slide collection (although it claims to be a multimedia demo) of Eric’s characters of the female persuasion - and they’re all animals too. Amy The Squirrel and Rachel Racoon appear though it’s a dreadful shame that the fox isn’t called Samantha.
Missed opportunities aside, the collection includes profiles of the characters - Amy is a red squirrel, £51 per cent sweetheart, 49 per cent bitch’. Phew! It’s nicely presented and a gentle introduction to the world of Schwartz.
Considerably less clement is Mr Schwartz’s latest anim, Morphy The Magic Man (Telescan), an incredibly brief tale of conjuring and theft presented by a woman with gravity-defying breasts.
Morphy entertains and transfixes a small chap by changing the shape of an object at will, before Wow, check out the grin. Although Eric Schwartz's new looping anim is a tad on the short side, Morphy The Magic Man is worth a look. The hand under the block belongs to the unfortunate onlooker.
"Hey, who moved my furniture on to the sidewalk? Sorry, er pavement." Twingo is without any doubt the best Renault-inspired demo to reach the Amiga Format Demo Zone desk this month.
These guys from Fatal Morgana are pretty cool huh? Da dadada, dadada, dadada - to the tune of Paradise City.
Mind, I’ve never heard of the Twingo before.
Backing up the visual extravaganza is a quirky song with a thwacking beat and some jolly pleasant humming - rather reminiscent of the stuff you heard on Seventies Polish cartoons.
Crash Test (Telescan) says everything it wants in three minutes and is backed by a rather punky guitar track which makes a pleasant change.
Although it’s the usual mixed bag of effects, the 3D rotating dots and original glass vector are nicely performed.
Parental Advisory - Explicit Demo warns the opening credits to Fatal Morgana (Yorvik PD). Yet, after watching this demo some seven times, I cannot trace any abusive language, or sexual innuendo. Anyway, it’s a fairly standard rave affair with a Naomi Campbell lookalike dancing in front of a clock. It resembles the ones you used to get before Picture Box on school telly when everyone counted the seconds down.
The picture flickers tremendously (deliberately) toward the end of the first section and an epilepsy warning would have been more instructive. However, the twist comes at a break when suddenly Beavis And Butt-head appear and engage in their usual inane, amusing banter and best of all exclaim that, “this demo sucks, a huh huh huh”. Great stuff. • neck. SM hits the ground with a delightful thud, bounces back up, whereupon his head departs at the neck. Sponsered by Live Life Assureance (sic) and filmed by a TV cameraman, old SM has hit the big time. It’s not the smoothest, nor is it the slickest
anim you’ll ever see but it’s funny in a sick, horrendous way. Not for the squeamish though.
Creating a concrete block which then topples on the hapless chap. Our Morphy half-inches the bloke’s cash before performing the sort of evil grin that would have left Terry Thomas shaking his head in admiration. Morphy The Magic Man looks great, and there are some splendid biff, bang and pop sound effects. If only Morphy could have conducted further trickery.
This’ll have you squirming in your seats.
Gloriously gory, and strictly for over eighteens, Suicide Man (17 Bit Software, 3908) is back for his third adventure. Death, as usual is the main item on the menu and Suicide Man really has really surpassed himself this time.
The set-up is elaborate: he charges along a platform many metres above ground, grabs a rope from a pulley which he then wraps around his Rather less gory (mercifully) is the rather oddly-named Cuzco (17 Bit Software, 3108) by coders Oxygene. Visually, this demo is quite a feast: there are some excellent fractals and colourful cubes, and at one point, a slab of cheese makes an appearance - which somewhat breaks the mould. The soundtrack plinks along merrily in the background although it is but a minor accompaniment to the main course. Short, but quite sweet.
If Radio Two remixed Pump Up The Volume to make it palatable fare for their audience (which includes me, sadly), it would sound not dissimilar to the track from Electronic Knights’ Rampage (17 Bit Software, 3109). Kicking off with a speeding spaceship (green thing) shooting across a fractal landscape, we are then treated to the usual crazy mix of effects, some dull, others tremendous.

7. Cuzco, Oxygene 3108________________ The morphing cube is quite
spectacular and the two-coloured dotscape resembling a flag
blowing in the wind looks... like a flag blowing in the wind.
Interesting, although you can’t help feeling you’ve seen a lot
of it somewhere before.
Rampaging through a fractal landscape, the Cuzco spaceship-type-thing discovers some exciting visuals.
Well here’s an oddity. Tuhngo (Yorvik PD, AN0213) is an anim about the Renault car of the same name. The imagery is very simple - line drawings - but heck, it’s really very effective.
Other, lesser, cars are portrayed as mere grey boxes, straight from a simple mould whereas the totally fabulous Twingo is red, fast and environmentally friendly (that’ll be £25 Monsieur Renault s’il vous plait).

It is likely that the contacts in your joypad are broken, probably just from overuse. You can buy a replacement via mail order from Indi Direct. This replacement pad also has auto fire and a slow motion feature and costs a reasonable £14.99.

IMAGINE THAT Wow! What a Coverdisk that Imagine 2 was. Most excellent! I've been using it practically night and day since I managed to get my hands on it, but even with this amount of experimentation, there are some things I just can't grasp, so I was hoping you could give me some advice.
Is it possible to load an Imagine render (rendered in HAM) into Dpaint IV7 If so, what file format should I select within Imagine to make this possible? I only have 1Mb of RAM and would like to assemble rendered objects in Dpaint.
Finally, would it be possible to give a complete run through of all the gadgets in the Object Attributes requester including all the buttons, such as Filter, Skinniness and Index Of Refraction because I'm having trouble with mirrored or reflective surfaces. Could you suggest a Chrome Attribute that could help me?
Andrew Knight, Devon To load Imagine HAM renders into Dpaint choose ILBM-12bit and HAM in the rendering preferences.
You can render to HAM8 mode in Imagine 3.0 if you choose to upgrade.
The Imagine tutorials come to a close this issue, so check that we haven't covered what you want to know in a previous issue. If not it will have to be questions through Workbench.
A decent chrome attribute is: Has your joypad already taken a beating? Indi Direct are now offering replacements.
LIFE OF GAIVIES OIU HjES oceaiu waves I am a seaman and three months ago I bought an Amiga CD32 in Amsterdam. I have spent many happy hours with this machine, but now the joypad control button is damaged.
I don’t know when I will be in Amsterdam again because the ship is running all around the world. Please advise me where I can buy a joypad button or a complete joypad.
Roman Galuszewski, at sea IUO WANDS PLEASE I recently purchased an Amiga 1200 and I am very impressed with its many features and its performance. The Amiga was bought basically for my wife and I to improve our Scrabble playing (we have bought the US Gold game of Scrabble with which we are very pleased).
My reason for writing is that I also have a Canon Starwriter 80 which I use for all my correspondence and records. As you will be aware, this incorporates a bubblejet printer which is excellent.
Is there any way that I can download from the Amiga to print on the Canon? I have an IBM conversion disk which enables me to pass on and receive data from friends and colleagues with IBM computers which I think could be of use.
Knowing of your similar sense of humour to my own I will forestall your suggestion that I should wave my magic wand!

At Amiga Format we aim to answer as many questions as possibly, and hopefully to sort out all your problems.
Of course there are always more questions than answers, so we have to prioritise queries according to the following factors:
• Frequency. If a lot of people seem to be having problems with
their Supersonic KY3000 printers then we will print one letter
and the definitive answer, encompassing all the most frequently
posed problems.
• Difficulty. If the problem is actually something which only
someone with some insider technical knowledge would be able to
solve, it is more likely to be answered in these pages than a
problem which arises simply because you haven't read the
necessary documentation.
• Impact. Quite simply, a question which involves you not being
able to use your machine or some peripheral or software will be
given priority over a difficulty which is little more than a
slight inconvenience.
Unlike some magazines we won't just concentrate on the areas of expertise we are most familiar with, we will take on any problem (as long as there is an Amiga involved). We have even enlisted the help of Commodore's Chief Engineer for those particularly tricky questions.
As you will appreciate, we do get a lot of questions. If you want to get yours noticed, here are a few tips: DO
• Be concise.
• Detail the actual problem as best you can.
• Where applicable, describe the sequence of events that caused
the problem.
• Give details of the equipment you are using (including which
version of Workbench and which model of Amiga you have).
• Make sure your question is relevant and wouldn't be more easily
solved by the dealer from whom you bought the goods.
DON'T
• Spend three pages telling us about your Aunt Ethel and only
then explain your problem.
• Write in with questions such as 'I added a hard drive to my
machine and it doesn't work.
What can I do?' (Which machine? Which drive?)
• Send an SAE expecting a personal reply.
The chances are extremely slim.
Please bear these points in mind and remember that we are trying our best to help you.
Well, you’re going to like this - not a lot - but you’ll like it. Firstly, unlike the Starwriter 85 and 95, you cannot connect the Starwriter 85 to a computer through a standard printer port. The good news is that you have an IBM conversion disk. I’m not sure what form this takes, but it would seem likely that you can also use this process to transfer Amiga files and print them out.
The A1200 is equipped with a system called CrossDOS which enables it to read and write PC disks. All you have to do is say the magic words and save out your files on a PC disk, and use the same conversion program.
Again, I don’t know if this conversion program will handle anything other than straight text.
Remember that the Amiga can redirect all printing to a file, using the CMD program (see your Workbench manual). This file could then be saved on to a PC disk and transferred using your conversion program.
One final word of warning; try not to sprinkle too much pixie dust about, as it damages drives.
A500 QUESTIONS AMD ANSWERS I own an Amiga 500+ and have a few simple questions I would like you to answer: II use my Amiga for games, graphics and DTP.
How much would a side board accelerator such as the Supra Turbo 28 improve the performance of this type of software, and is it good value for money at £130?
2 Can you tell me what OCR software is when related to using scanners?
3 What hardware do I need to enable me to use video titling software?
4 Have companies stopped producing A500 and A500+ hardware? There seems to be a very small amount of it reviewed in your magazine.
J Blair, London Ian accelerator such as the Supra Turbo 28 would improve the performance slightly.
Theoretically, your machine would be running twice as fast, but because a-lot of the tasks are undertaken by the custom chips (which are not affected by a processor accelerator) you will only see marginal benefits. I think you would be better off saving up for an A1200.
2 OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition.
It is a means of turning scanned text pages back into a text document, to save you having to type it in again. See the scanners feature in this issue on page 88.
3 None. You could title videos just using Deluxe Paint. If you want to overlay your titles directly on to a video image, you will need a device known as a genlock. There are plenty advertised in the pages of this magazine - exactly what features you get depend on the model.
4 There has been a downturn in A500 hardware.
If you think about it, it would be a little limiting for companies to develop new hardware for a machine which is no longer being produced.
Some hardware such as printers, samplers, genlocks, digitisers and so on, may still work on the A500, it’s just that they’re not designed specifically with it in mind.
Is there a program I can use to design my own fonts?
Q A If you are talking about bitmap fonts, there are several PD programs available. The best system though is Personal Fonts Maker from Cloanto. For scaleable fonts, you want to get hold of Typesmith reviewed in issue 56. Both programs are available from Meridian on 081-543 3500.
What is the RAD device?
Q A The RAD disk is a recoverable RAM drive. In operation it is similar to the RAM disk, apart from three things. Firstly, it has a fixed size - it will not expand to use up available memory. Secondly, it is usually configured to behave exactly like a floppy disk. This means that you can format and duplicate it in exactly the same way as a floppy.
Perhaps most importantly, the RAD device is recoverable. After a soft reset, you will find that the RAD device is still there and all of its COMPACT DISCS AMD ACCELERATORS Accelerators such as Mtec speed up your machine, but what about your memory requirements?
I recently purchased an M-TEC T1230 28 accelerator for my A1200, which is fitted with a 68030 CPU with an MMU. My financial status doesn’t quite stretch to the extra hundred quid for another 4Mb of memory and so, while flipping through some of my older Amiga Formats, I came across GigaMem, the virtual memory program. The number provided - 0753 686000 - was incorrect.
Could you give me the correct number, or suggest any other similar programs which are just as good.
Also in issue 59 I noticed this CD32 connection kit, and although I have been waiting for something like this for some time I was a bit disappointed with the transfer time of approx 10K a second. Now that somebody has released one, do you think it is likely that another company might supersede it with a more advanced and faster version?
Stuart Barker, Cleveland GigaMem will work with the Mtec card and is available from Meridian on 081-543 3500. It used to be distributed by HB Marketing, who unfortunately went bust. As regards the CD32 connector, the difficulty is that such devices work via the serial port.
Contents are still intact. This means that you can even boot-up from a RAD disk.
What is a NoiseTracker clone?
Q AnoiseTracker is a very old music program for the Amiga. It uses standard Amiga samples which can be simply put together to make a tune. It was very popular because tunes were constructed in an easy way - you didn't have to know anything about music.
Probably the best known NoiseTracker clone is OctaMED - which will be on AF's Coverdisk next month, so make sure you get a copy!
What is a mouse-switcher?
Q A A mouse-switcher is a simple device which plugs into the mouseport of the Amiga. You then plug a mouse and a joystick into this device and it switches between whichever is in use.
Basically, it saves you from having to swap them all around when playing with two joysticks.
Which can only reliably handle data transfer at relatively slow speeds. You would be better off waiting for the SX1 module (which will apparently have a parallel port) and using ParNet.
ALL FULL UP I have a 1Mb Amiga 500 with Workbench vl.3. and I am having problems with your April issue ProVector 2.1 Coverdisk. Having followed all the de-archiving instructions, the program wouldn’t run because the Arp library was missing.
In the May issue you suggested copying the Arp library across to the Workbench disk. I have tried this, and each time a window pops-up and tells me that the Workbench is full.
I have deleted the empty drawer, the trashcan and trashcan info, but to no avail - my Workbench is still full. Please help, I have a program I desperately want to run, but cannot. Any advice would be most appreciated.
Phil Deed, Cheshire You can remove some of the utilities on your disk that you don’t use. Things like the calculator, notepad and so on, are probably not much use to you. Ditch them, copy across the Arp library and all your problems will be solved.
IS THERE ANYBODY DDT THERE?
I have designed a set of pictures which can be clipped to design and print scenarios for the Space Hulk board game. Basically, it is a set of IFF files which are cut out as brushes and put together to form different layouts. Obviously, I am only able to do this via Dpaint.
What I would like to do is to be able to cut and paste them by use of a mouse click as this would speed up the whole process.
I am totally inexperienced at programming.
Do you know of any PD program available that would enable me to do this. Alternatively, could you put me in touch with prospective program- GE 4t If all you want to do is display static pictures, f it doesn't really matter which card you choose to buy. The Retina card is pretty good and quite cheap, try The Amiga Centre Scotland on 0896 870583.
Mers who would be interested in assisting. My ultimate aim is to perfect the program and put it on to the Public Domain.
Peter Wood, Isle of Wight I haven’t come across such a thing, but I’m sure if such a thing exists, the massed hordes of the Amiga Format readership will write in to let you (and me) know.
TEACHING AIU OLD DOG NEW TRICKS Having bought an Amiga, and assuming that the instruction books would be written in a simple language (for new owners like me), I find this is not the case. Fit leads, use the mouse, play simple games, do simple things, turn it off and that’s about all I know, apart from how to go slowly mad.
The instruction book does not seem to cater for people who have never used a computer before. So, as you seem to be the people who know everything about this machine, please tell me where I can get any books for idiots. I’ve gone through the Basically Amiga PD disks, but even they do not give a lot of information on some things which I need to know. The fact that I can send you this letter using Text Engine means that I JARGON BUSTERS Buffer - A memory cache used by the computer to regulate and speed up access times with storage devices such as hard and floppy drives.
FPS - Frames Per Second. This is a measurement of how fast an animation plays. Traditionally, animated films run at 24fps and video at 25fps. A speed of at least 20fps is needed in order to fool the human brain into thinking it is seeing real motion rather than just a series of still frames.
FPU - A Floating Point Unit, or maths co-processor, speeds up many software programs. It works by intercepting mathematical operations on their way to the CPU and doing them itself.
Since it is optimised for this sort of work the result can be a fourfold speed increase, depending on the application you are using.
Amiga 24-bit graphics cards vary greatly in price and quality - basically you get what you pay for.
Il've been thinking about buying a 24-bit graphic card for my Amiga 4000 040 with 10Mb RAM and a 120Mb hard drive. Please tell me which you consider to be the best card.
2 I just love to render in Imagine 2.0 and Real 3D version 4. Will a graphics card have any effect on the rendering time?
Am not a complete moron, but swapping files, requesters that say Argument, and that type of thing, means that I cannot really use this machine.
Perhaps the saying ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ is correct. I’m 45 and just cannot get to grips with this Amiga.
Mr L Nash, Bath There are a lot of people like you, and we are here to help. We try to cater for all Amiga readers, but if all of the magazine was at a really basic level, people who know the simple stuff would stop reading.
I hope you have been reading the Workbench tutorials in the magazine. You can also buy informative books, such as Get The Most Out Of Your Amiga (see page 138), or the BSB titles such as the Insiders Guide series. Our own video introduction to the A1200 will also be a big help to you (see the promotional card with this issue) and there are also two AFBeginners’ Specials (see page 136).
It may be worth seeing if there are any Amiga clubs in your area. Stick with it, it gets better.
IVIUSIC PLEASE I’m having a bit of a problem with Music-X 1.1. (Amiga Format Coverdisk 58a) on my A1200.
Having decompressed it, I tried to create a buffer HAM - Hold And Modify. This is a software kludge, which enabled pre-AGA machines to display 4,096 colours on screen at once.
RGB - This is a video signal format consisting of separate signals for Red, Green and Blue, from which it gets its name. This is the best signal for displaying images on a monitor, because there is no chance of the signals interfering with each other. Because the monitor actually needs these three signals to drive the guns in the tube, any system which uses less than three signals for the picture information is a compromise.
SCSI - Small Computer Systems Interface. This is a popular interface standard used on the Amiga, PC and Mac. It enables the addition of many devices, but is used mostly for mass storage devices such as hard disks and tapestreamers.
No. Using a graphics card will make no differ- to the rendering time. (In fact, it may make it longer, because you will want to render in true 24-bit.)
3 Lightwave has been unbundled from the Toaster package. See this issue's news pages for more details.
Please can you help me as I do not know much about computers. My son has an A500 with Workbench 1.3 and a 512K memory upgrade giving 1Mb, but he tells me he wants more memory.
I am not working, therefore I cannot afford to buy a new computer, so he has asked for the RAM unit with 2Mb fitted for £129.99 from Evesham Micros on page 124 of Amiga Formats May issue.
What I want to know is will it work all right with his computer? He also wants Workbench 2 or
3. Where can I get it from and how much will it cost? Should he
have the extra power supply for the RAM unit too?
M J Oliver, Dorset I think you and your son would be a lot better off saving up for an A1200. It comes with plenty of memory (2Mb) and Workbench 3. It will cost you another £200 to get 2Mb RAM and Workbench 2 on your present machine, so in the long run you’ll be saving money.
DRIVE WORRIES I have been having a few problems with my new- hard drive. I have an A1200 and the hard drive was fitted by Indi and was installed using the Microbotics program supplied.
First, it doesn’t seem to want to boot-up when I switch on; it just spins up and then the insert disk screen appears. The only way I can get it to boot up is to hold down both mouse buttons and click on boot.
Also, History Line 1914-18 won’t install properly.
Tt installs but when vou load it the graphics are according to the instructions, but I couldn’t. In fact, the screen I get when I select Information in Workbench is totally different to the one shown in your magazine.
There are only two icons - Save and Cancel - as opposed to four in the AF screen. Also there isn’t a Tool types window, only a Default tool window in which it says SYS: System DiskCopy. It also seems to think that Music-X is a volume, and not a tool as shown in AF. Please help!
Tom Proctor, Bristol You are clicking on the disk’s icon, not the program’s icon. Double-click on the disk icon and a window will open. Inside the window, you will find the icon for the program itself.
BUY1IUG ADVICE distorted. It works with no problems from floppy, but not from Workbench.
Tom Billyard, Worcestershire Firstly, you may have a drive which takes a while to initialise itself. This means that it won’t boot up initially, but it will probably work if you turn your machine on, leave it for about a minute and then do a soft reset (with the Amiga keys).
Your second problem sounds like that old favourite - the Max Transfer Rate. You can adjust this by running HDToolbox. If you select Partition, choose Advanced Options and press Change, a screen will appear with the Max Transfer Rate gadget. Just make this (hex) number smaller, deleting the first F for instance, and continue to make it smaller until it works.
IT ALL ADDS OF* Is FMV essential to CD-ROM? See below and check out David Pleasance's comments on page 169.
I’ve got an A1200, 80Mb Seagate hard disk and a PC1208 4Mb expansion. I was hoping to add a CD- ROM drive to all of this, but in your CD-ROM article in AF59 it says that you use the expansion under the computer. This is already being used by the memory expansion, therefore is it possible to connect the memory to the CD drive through a port of some kind? If this is not possible, please explain why.
Also, I was planning on buying an A1230 to speed up my Amiga because it’s too slow at the moment. Will it be possible to put this in (obviously getting rid of the memory first).
About the CD drive - I’m not too bothered about FMV. Is it just me or won’t it be annoying to change the Cds halfway through a film? 74 minutes isn’t long enough for full films, is it?
M S Sony, Kent The proposed CD-ROM expansion for the A1200 does not have a throughport. It does occupy the U'apdoor slot and you will not be able to put anything else in this expansion. However, you will be able to add a SIMM module to the board to increase your RAM capacity. You can put in an A1230 accelerator card, but not at the same time as your existing expansion or the CD-ROM unit.
Yes, you do have to change discs halfway through. If you get annoyed at having a small break in the middle of the film, I can only imagine that you must miss out on a lot of films on TV.
Dual scan monitors such as Commodore's 1942 have a limited frequency range, and thus are a cheaper buy.
Ithe output from your Amiga can be displayed on three different types of display device - the common domestic television (you'll need a TV modulator if you own either an A2000 or an A500), a composite video monitor, or best of all, an RGB monitor.
RGB monitors are considerably better than composite monitors because the output from your Amiga is split into three separate signals (red, green and blue), whereas a composite signal is a composite (mix) of all three.
2 If your finances can't quite stretch to the cost of a monitor, but you're lucky enough to own a television capable of accepting a video signal from a Euro SCART connector, get yourself an Amiga SCART lead. Most SCART-equipped televisions will actually accept an RGB signal through the SCART connector resulting in a sharper picture.
3 By far the most common type of Amiga RGB monitor is the single scan monitor (Commodore's own 1084, for example). Single scan monitors are a little long in the tooth tliese days, but they still provide a cheap and cheerful method of getting a good quality display without having to spend too much money.
The only real disadvantage with single scan monitors is that - as their name suggests - they can only handle a single, fixed scan rate (15KHz).
Unless you want to use a flicker fixer card or the DBL (double) screen modes offered by the AGA chipset, however, a single scan monitor should suffice.
4 If you work with a lot of programs that open interlaced screen modes, then a dual scan (the 1942 monitor, for example) or multisync is a much better bet.
Dual scans are cheaper because they have a more limited frequency range. These operate in only two frequencies - for example, a monitor such as the Commodore 1942 operates in 15KHz and 31 Khz, or the Microvitec 1438 in 15KHz and 40KHz. These two frequencies are more than adequate for all current Amiga screen modes including the high resolution de-interlaced DBL (double) screen modes available on the A1200 and A4000.
5 It is possible to use a cheap VGA monitor on the Amiga if you own either an A1200 or an A4000. Because of the very limited frequency range of a VGA monitor, however, you cannot display standard 15KHz Amiga screen modes unless the application can either be mode promoted, or it will allow you to select its default screen mode from the Workbench display database. This only applies to programs that run through Intuition. However, games, for example, hit the hardware directly and cannot have their screen modes modified.
6 Mode promotion is a new feature of Workbench 3.0 that has been specifically designed to make it easier to use pre-AGA software on higher rate, non-interlaced monitors. If the application attempts to open a standard 15KHz screen, the mode promoter steps in and forces the program to open in a higher rate screen mode. You can turn mode promotion on by selecting it from the Iprefs preferences program.
7 In order to use a multisync, VGA, or dual sync monitor with the Amiga, you'll need to invest in an adaptor that is manufactured by Commodore (part no. 39068201). This connects between the 15-pin D connector used on these types of monitor and the Amiga's own 23-pin D plug. All Commodore multisyncs and dual sync monitors come with this adaptor, but you will have to buy it separately if you buy a monitor which isn't from Commodore.
8 The quality of all televisions and monitors can vary quite substantially between different monitors of the same make and model. Television engineers quote an acceptable variation in picture quality of about 10 per cent either way, which means that you could end up with a monitor that is either 10 per cent better than most or 10 per cent worse!
9 The most common problems with both televisions and monitors are purity (variable brightness levels producing blotches on the display), convergence (colour guns are not lined up correctly producing ghosting), pin cushioning (the edges of the display warp inwards) and striations (vertical lines caused by time base problems).
If your new television or monitor has an unacceptable level of any of these problems, you should demand a replacement from your supplier I Uorkhench Icontrd Preferences Ryu id Flickers j J Preserve Colors; i _U (SHIFT) 1 CTRL | ALT _y(J A (L£FT ill Cl) Screen Menu Snap; j J NTe: t Badge!

.... Which
computer(s), if any, do you own?
Your choices will effect the screen resolution (shown in this box). You can specify an image larger than the display size by entering values into the lower boxes.
Clicking on these buttons reverses the numbers, effectively switching from portrait to landscape.
Paint colours and so on is out the window. The Amiga-generated picture on a TV or monitor is made up of three light components: red, green and blue (RGB). These combine to give white.
Any colour you display on a screen is therefore made up of different levels of red, green and blue light, or to phrase it in computerspeak, each colour has a red, green and blue component.
FINE TUNING THE COLOUR PALETTE If your whole palette looks a bit green, too dark or it's lacking in contrast, you can change the whole lot at a stroke.
In the beginning, it was sticks and berry juice on the cave walls. But mankind has progressed quite a bit since then, and now our art tends to be generated by using slightly more advanced technology. There are acrylic paints, synthetic canvases and now in the age of computers there’s painting with pure light.
That’s all very well, but the techniques of art have changed. Computer art has made the nature of art itself both different and more accessible.
This means that there is a learning curve both for experienced artists who have never used a computer and complete novices, who have never tried their hand at art Whichever category you fall into, we hope you will find this tutorial, and the ones which follow, informative and useful.
PICK A COLOUR The first crucial difference between art on the Amiga and more traditional methods is that with the Amiga you are effectively painting with light.
This means that all your experience with mixing lUick Veitch sketches out the basics of getting started with Cloanto's Personal Paint, the new paint package in Commodore's A1200 bundle.
CHOOSING YOUR DISPLAY MODE The appearance of your artwork will depend greatly on the screen mode it was drawn in. Here's how to get the right one.
These components combine to give the desired colour when displayed, so colours in an RGB system are known as Additive Colours.
This is almost the complete reverse of traditional paints. They work by absorbing some components of light and reflecting others.
Because they effectively remove components from light, they are known as Subtractive Colours.
The colours produced are not entirely dissimilar, but it is important for you to grasp this basic difference because it could well effect the results you obtain.

This slider adjusts the brightness across the entire palette and is the equivalent of moving all three RGB sliders up or down.
This slider adjusts the colour saturation across the whole palette.
? Color! +8% Brigftt.: +0% Contrast! +0% These sliders just affect the individual RGB components of ail the colours.
Proceed 1 | Keep I Cancel The contrast setting will increase (or decrease) the dynamic range of the colours in the palette.
This image shows how you can alternate colours in a crosshatch pattern to give the impression of there being more colours on screen than there actually are.
The image above shows what can be obtained with just five colours - there is a light red and a light green made from the pure red and grey (or pure green and grey) and a murky yellow made, believe it or not, from pure red and green.
The point of this demonstration is that it shows you can often make do with fewer colours (if you are designing Icons for example) and also that sometimes you may get undesired results from combinations of colours.
EDITING THE COLOUR PALETTE An at-a-glance guide to how you can set up and use the Personal Paint Colour Palette.
Cloanto Personal Use this button to copy the current colour to the position next clicked on in the palette bar, The palette displays all the current colours available.
This shows the current colour for reference.
These two buttons sort the palette in order of increasing or decreasing brightness.
These two buttons create a graduated range between the two selected colours.
The first uses the RGB system, and the second uses the HSV system.
This button will reset all the colours to their original values.
This button undoes the last change made.
Use this button to hide the requester, so you can see what's underneath.
Third slider controls the Volume or overall brightness of the component.
You should also check out the special controls in the palette requester, which can be used to create a range of shades between two existing colours. It is a good idea to fix the palette before you start.
REFRESH YOUR PALETTE Deciding how many colours you are going to use is important. It is no good starting off with 16 colours and then deciding that you really need 32 because you will quickly lose control of your idea and end up with an effect you don’t want. It’s always worth taking time to plan your artwork before you boot up your paint package.
Of course, you can always change the palette you have created using the palette edit selection from the menu. As we discussed before, the values are entered using red, green and blue sliders, which give ranges of 0 to 255. This gives a total colour permutation of 256 x 256 x 256 which equals 16.78 million different colours.
In practice, the human eye cannot distinguish between that number of shades, so 16.78 million is more than enough to be getting on with.
In Personal Paint you’ll also notice that there are three more sliders at the bottom. These are marked H, S and V and can also be used to select the colour required. These use a different colour model. The top slider controls the Hue, or wavelength of the colour; the middle one controls the Saturation, or how strong the colour is; and the This button exchanges the colour selected with the next colour clicked on in the palette bar.
The HSV sliders can be used to select a colour instead of the RGB sliders if you desire.
The RGB sliders determine the colour of the currently selected palette position, with up to
16. 78 million combinations.
MIX AND MATCH Something to be aware of right from the start of your experiments with paint packages is that problems can arise when you combine two separate images together. More likely than not the two images will have different palettes which can be extremely annoying, especially when one or other of the images doesn’t use very many colours on that palette.
However, it’s easy enough to check an image’s colour usage by using the Colour Statistics option from the Personal Paint menu. This particularly useful function counts all of the pixels that make up the image on your screen and then displays a bar graph which shows the percentage usage of each colour.
You can merge the palettes of two images or brushes using the Merge option in the Personal Paint Colour menu. This useful operation works out which colours are used the least in both of the images and attempts, as far as possible, to remap all the colours to keep the colours used in both images the same. The statistics function shows which colours you are using, and how much use you have made of them.

Brian Larkman concludes his series of Imagine tutorials by casting some light on one of the ray-tracing program's most dramatic and powerful effects... You may be wondering why it has taken so long for us to deal with lighting in this series of tutorials. The trouble is that although realistic lighting effects are possible using Imagine, they are difficult to set up and they can take a long time to experiment with - especially if you need to create shadows - because the rendering times are very long.
At first sight Imagine s lights seem very limited by modern standards. Three light types are offered: Spherical, which casts light in all directions, Cylindrical, which casts a narrow spot in one direction, and Conical, which also throws a beam in one direction, but spreads it like a torch. All three types can be set to cast shadows or not, and the intensity can be set to diminish with distance.
They can also be set to any colour. And that’s it!
Next month’s tutorial will be about... No, only joking. As you might expect there are a number of tricks that can be used to improve the look of your image and we’ll examine some of them here.
Most of the techniques are fairly simple and the scenes are mostly indoors because that is where the greatest degree of subdety is required to simulate man-made lighting set-ups. Outside, the simple combination of a high ‘sun’ and perhaps some fill-in close-to is usually enough.
Anyway, if you can master these interior effects, everything else is easy although the atmospheric effects of light are difficult to achieve in a program that does not support sophisticated light diffusion effects.
Imagine's lights are always single point sources.
This means that shadows are always hard-edged, unlike real shadows where the edges become progressively softer the further away they are from the light source.
To make up for the hard edges, Imagine allows any object to be made of fog which is very useful for bulbs and other sources of light that you want to be visible. Imagine also enables the user to map bitmaps on to any object. As well as normal colour wraps the image map can represent degrees of transparency, allowing varying degrees of light to pass through. *2?
BASIC LIGHTING SET-UP Everything that our eyes perceive is visible because light from some source has struck that object and bounced off in every direction, some of it into our eyes. To make an object visible in an Amiga model the same thing must happen.

Cancel Imagine's ambient light source simulates natural light and is controlled from the Global Time-Line in the Action Editor. A setting of 50-80 for each of the red, green and blue sliders gives a low level of this background light,
but no shadows are cast and the whole scene is extremely flat and dark.
SETTING LIGHT INFO In practice the Ambient colour is best set after the rest of the lights have been added, to decrease contrast and give a little detail in the shadow areas. Several other lighting-related parameters can be set in the Global Time-Line such as Background and Fog Colour.
SETTING THE STAGE LIGHTING If you want the objects to have reasonable shading and moderate contrast, but retain a daylight effect, a spherical light should be placed high above the scene, perhaps 2 to10 times the camera- to-central-object distance. To place a light in the Stage Editor, select Object Add Light Source and a light object (a circle with a control point at its centre) is placed at the centre of the scene. This can be Picked and Moved like any other object. If you set the light to cast shadows (see Setting Light Info) they look better if the light is positioned above the camera
and to one side.
Some of the sun's natural light bouncing from objects illuminates other objects before it gets to our eyes. To simulate this effect, place a second, duller, non-shadow-casting light below the object and on the opposite side of the camera to the main 'sun' light. Light parameters like type, colour, shadows and diminished intensity are controlled from each light's Time-Line in the Action Editor. To use this:
• Save Changes in the Stage Editor and move to the Action Editor.
• Find the required Lightsource (the first, main, 'sun' light is
called Lightsource, the second one added will be called
Lightsource. 1)
• Make sure the Info button is selected on the user strip and
click on the red (Actor) Time-Line.
This will display the Lightsource Info requester.
In this example, notice that the light colour has been set to 80 each for R,G and B. This reduces the brightness of the light to give the 'fill-in' effect. Cast Shadows should not be selected. For the main Sun, RG and B should remain at 255 each and Cast Shadows should be selected.
UP-LIGHTER EXPERIMENTS SIMPLE SPHERICAi LIGHT: DIMINISHED INTENSITY OFF Here's a simple wall 'up-lighter' effect.
If you place a simple Spherical light close to a wall, its illumination diminishes very gradually with distance.
Often - when other lights are having an effect on the scene as well - this effect is too gradual to be visible.
(5. 0) and the other with a higher length
(50. 0). More on how this works below.
LIGHT BULB OBJECTS shade. Obviously here the result is the same because we have only used one light - and worse, by using shadows the rendering time increases greatly.
UP-LIGHTER: MULTIPLE SPHERIC LIGH WITH SHADOWS because they have no shading of any kind, they just display their Colour Attribute at its brightest. As long as this is set to a bright colour the object looks lit from within.
BRIGHT AND MAPPED SIMPLE SPHERICAL LIGHT: DIMINISHED INTENSITY ON If the Diminished Intensity button is selected (box has cross in it), the light behaves quite differently. In the central region it illuminates evenly but at the edges the intensity diminishes rapidly.
This effect is much more visible in renders with other light sources, though it would be better if there was more control over it. In this tutorial. Diminished Intensity has been used for all examples except where stated otherwise.
SIMPLE CONICAL LIGHT NO SHADOWS The simplest way to get an up-lighting effect is to place a Conical light close to the wall with its Y axis pointing almost parallel with the wall. Cylindrical and Conical lights are quite similar. The length is set by the Y size on the size sub-row of the light in the Action Editor. For a Cylindrical light, this can be set to a very large number to ensure it reaches everything you point it at (assuming you want a spotlight or beam). The radius of the Cylindrical light and the radius of the end of the Conical light (the wide end) are set by the X axis.
CYLINDER LIGHT LASER EFFECT Laser Beam effects can be produced using a Cylindrical light, but the beam itself does not show unless you make it pass along a semi-transparent or fog object. In this case two cylinders are used, one with a very low Fog Length The direction a light is pointing is shown by a thin line pointing from the on-screen icon. This is often difficult to see and does not grow bigger when you zoom in. For this reason it is often better to make an object cast light - its Y axis is quite obvious and grows with zooming. The trouble is it's then visible. But is that so bad? Most
domestic light sources are visible, so why not make a bulb object that illuminates what is around it?
If you look carefully at a bright light bulb you will find that you cannot see the glass of the bulb, just its glare.
In this case the glass part of the bulb is made a fog object (while setting its Attributes in the Detail Editor). All you need to do is set the Fog Length to about the diameter of the object and do a test render. To make it less dense increase the Fog Length, to make it more dense decrease it.
WATERY SUN Although it's possible to place a light within global fog to get a watery sun effect, it's much easier to make the sky a vertical plane object behind your scene and then place a small fog sphere close to it to get this sort of graduated sky effect.
UP-LIGHTER: SINGLE SPHERICAL LIGHT WITH SHADOWS As we have seen, the simplest way to get the up-lighting effect is to place a Conical light close to the wall with its Y axis pointing almost parallel with the wall. The trouble is, as with this image, the edges of the light are very hard right to the top whereas a real light would become diffuse at the edges.
One possible cure might be to place the light casting the shadows inside the To get the effect we want we must use more lights. Here we have used just two so the hard edges are still visible.
If we used four or more lights spaced around the surface of a sphere, the edges of light beams cast from the uplighter would be soft. This is, in fact, what happens in nature. Most light sources have a size or width, so beams cast from one side reach places beams cast from the other side could not reach and vice versa, so only the centre region illuminated by the whole width would be bright. In Imagine, such an effect can only be achieved with a truly massive rendering time so this two- light version will have to do.
UP-LIGHTER: SINGLE SPHERICAL Ll HT WITH SHADOWS AND FILTER There is one other possible technique to use and that involves applying a Transparency or Filter map to the light- shade as a mask in front of the light. To get soft edges the map (created in Dpaint in lo-res mode) is a white (transparent) disk blending progressively into a black (opaque) background. The lightshade used here was rather complicated to make, but if you just create a cylinder closed at one end, then place a disk of the same diameter over it, the disk can be mapped on to and a light placed inside will project out
through the transparent hole in the map.
THE BRIGHT EFFECT Many objects can look effectively lit just by making them Bright. The Bright effect is added as an Attribute in the Detail Editor by selecting the Bright button. Bright objects look illuminated Unfortunately, removing the shading makes the object look very flat so you may find it useful to map a pattern or lines on to the object to enhance its form. Here, a simple repeating brush was produced in Dpaint and Wrapped on to the object using the Attributes Requester in the Detail Editor. One of the joys of Imagine 2.0is that it almost always gets the placing of Brushmaps exactly
right. Here the brush is Flat on the X axis and Wrapped on the Z to give a good 'cylinder' wrap.
TRANSPARENT LIGHT SHADE While creating the transparency map used for the mask above, make some other maps. Use a range of grey tones to create a variety of patterns. When mapped on to a lampshade they produce transparent areas through which light of various intensities can shine creating different levels of shadow.
FILTER AND COLOUR MAPPE1 LIGHTSHADE Here the shade is mapped with a trans parent Filter Map and a normal Colour Map. By making the Filter Map Brushmap 1 and the Colour map Brushmap 2, the transparency effects take precedence.
Structured drawing packages such as ProVector are ideal for creating logos because bitmap images can be blown up as large as you like with no loss of quality. This means you can use the same logo whether you want it to appear on letterheads or advertising hoardings.
Most logos involve some typography. There are a few exceptions to this rule, like the Mercedes Benz three pointed star, but a company or organisation has to be really huge before it can risk a type-free logo.
So, let’s take a look at how to get the most out of some of ProVector's text handling abilities.
S imp le_Stroke
1. ENTERING TEXT ProVector s text gadget is the capital T symbol.
Click once on this, and then on the place on your drawMarcus
Dyson takes a look at Projector's text handling capabilities
and how they can be used to produce logos.
Clicking on the Change icon 4j (left) renders the type in the newly- ™ selected style (below) This is the basis of a logo. Of course, logos consisting of type alone can be boring, so we need to come up with a simple pictorial device to add a bit more impact to our logo to make it stand out and get it noticed.
Ing where you would like to place your type. A box opens and you can type the words you wish to display in to the requester. If you then click on OK your words will appear on screen like so: Enter your text in here
2. EDITING TEXT If you are unhappy with the text you have
entered, you can edit it by simply clicking on it with the
selection tool active (the little hand). Remember that if you
wish to display different words in different sizes or
typefaces, you must enter them in their own separate text
requester, so that they become discreet objects.
3. CHANGING THE STYLE ProVector text is displayed in the default
face, which is Simple Stroke, a clear and easy-to-read
typeface, but not a very attractive one. So we need to select
a better face.
While your text object is selected, go to the Style menu, and select the typeface option. You will be presented with this requester box.
Clicking on the typeface gadget brings up a window showing what fonts you have available.
S Imp le_Stroke The Amiga Format ProVector Coverdisk came with a program called PSImport which can convert Adobe Type One fonts for use in ProVector - refer to Tutorial Two in AF59 for details of how to use this if you have access to Adobe Type One fonts.
Select the font you wish to use from the ones on offer, then click on OK. And... nothing happens. With ProVector, to see any change take effect on the rendered image you must click on the Change icon.
To change the colour of a piece of type’s outline and infill, you have to use the Style menu’s Fill and Border options which were covered in more detail in AF58.
Adding a few wavy looking lines to give the impression of water, and a circle to act as a focal point, turn our two words into an (admittedly crap) logo, but hey we’re trying to teach you how to use ProVector here, if you want to learn graphic design, go to college.
DOWN THE GARDEN PATH One of Projector's more advanced text manipulation abilities is that of attaching text to a path. A path is just a fancy way of saying a line, but it is also a simple but effective means of adding interest to the type on your logo. Here is a simple example: ProVector.828 v2.1:~Copyrlaht ® 1989-1991 by Stylus, Ii o I Coords ProVector.020 v2.1: Copyright © 1989 o( icat pi unfitted" Enter text Down the garden paths 2 While the path is selected, create some type. When the type requester appears, there's a new button, called On Path. Check this is on before you press OK.

216B J Maff Evans gets on to the more complex areas of MIDI sequencing - continuous controller messages.
PREPARING THE SEQUENCES Load up I Music-X and then load in the tutorial track you created in the last issue's tutorial.
Select the next free sequence in the list and select a sustained pad sound on your synth. Assign the sustained pad sound to a new MIDI channel and make sure that your keyboard is playing on that channel.
2 Play back the sequence from last month (listening to the bass line in particular) and rehearse an eight- bar pad sequence using single, sustained notes.
Make sure that all the sequences except the Metronome Sequences are set to Off and click on Record. Play a note on the keyboard to start and then play your eight-bar sequence after the two-bar count in. Click on Stop when you've finished.

MUSIC-X Sequence: Fade In CONTINUOUS CONTROLLERS After going through the first two tutorials in this series, you should now be able to record and edit sequences and string them together to provide full music sequences. This month we’ll go a step further and take a look at one of the more complicated areas of MIDI sequencing - using continuous controllers.
These are special MIDI events that affect synthesiser sounds and are usually used in continuous streams (hence the name). In this tutorial we’ll discover how you can use two of the most useful and important continuous controllers while sequencing volume and pitch bend, and how to use them for special effects such as gating (or strobing as it is sometimes known) and fades. To be able to make use of this tutorial, your MIDI syn- thesisier must be able to receive pitch-bend and con- tinuous controller messages.
First of all you need to work your way through the guide to preparing the sequences, then you can start to put in your effects .
Good luck!
PUTTING THE EFFECTS IN A SEQUENCE 1 MUSIC-X Select the next free sequence in the list and click on Edit. Go to the grid and set the values to full notes (the left-hand symbol). Choose Add-Play Sequence so that it's at the start of bar 033. Add a sequence at the beginning, stretch it out so that it's six bars long (using right cursor and shift) and use the up cursor to make it the Kick and Snare sequence.

Snare sequence (at bar 007), make it Fill 1 and stretch it out
one more bar so that it's two bars long.

bars, otherwise the pad won't get to its full volume).
Bar editor q g Go to bar 029 and add another sequence.
Use the up cursor to make this sequence Strobe- Gate and then use the right cursor and the Amiga's Shift key to stretch the sequence out another three bars (it should end at exactly the same time as the other sequences to give a good effect). Now play back the sequence you have created.
HUSIC-X Sequence: Untitled MUSIC-X Perf: First Song SEQUENCER The drums and bass should play normally, but the pad sequence should fade in slowly until after the fill. This is because the volume is gradually being increased using MIDI con- .1 . trailer 007. At the end of the sequence, the pad chord will cut in and out rapidly, creating a strobe effect. This is due to the MIDI volume messages being switched from maximum to minimum. Experiment with this to create your
own gated rhythms. Select Exit and Store and call the sequence Verse.

RECORD PITCH BEND Pitch bend messages are best recorded live
from a keyboard, since it is quite difficult to judge their
effect when entering with the mouse (it can also be a slow,
laborious process). The best method is to get your main backing
sorted out, select a lead line sound on your synth and record
it with all the pitch-bend played live.
Events can be sculpted, added and deleted in the same way as other controller messages, but the nature of their effect means that you have to be able to hear what's going on.
One point to note about pitch bend is that you need to make sure that the last value is at zero, otherwise any subsequent notes played with a pitch-bent sound will be horrendously out of key.

As you’ve probably already realised Blitz Basic is an incredible powerful programming system even though it’s based (rather roughly) on the easy-to- learn BASIC language. What makes Blitz such an impressive programming tool for Amiga users is that it includes some specific routines to make the most of the machine’s excellent hardware.
Blitz is particularly good for writing arcade games, so let’s jump right in and knock out a quick classic. A Breakout-style game is a good one to start with, but I can assure you that Blitz is easily powerful enough to duplicate just about any arcade game you can think of. I’ve already got plans for converting some of my favourites, and I’m sure you have too.
Wow - retro time. You can write your own arcade classics with Blitz Basic and this month we'll show you how to create BlitzOut, a Breakout-style bat, ball and brick extravaganza. Nostalgia, don't ya just love it.
We’ll call our Breakout game BlitzOut. The listing for BlitzOut is reasonably short for a game, which is partly due to Blitz s compact structure and partly because the program isn’t terribly complicated. However, there’s plenty of scope for adding as many of your own features as you want to the basic BlitzOut game structure.
Both the bat and ball are what Blitz refers to as shapes. A shape is a small graphic image, which can be displayed anywhere on screen using the Blit, Qblit and Bblit commands. The simplest is Blit, which only needs a shape number and an X and Y co-ordinate to work.
In this program we’ll use Bblit, which is slightly more complicated. Bblit automatically stores the data underneath the shape, which makes erasing it rather simple. The rest of the pro- CORRECT PROCEDURES PROCEDURE NAME PURPOSE PrepareScreen } ....Sets the correct screen mode, and loads in the background picture and shapes from disk.
MakeBricks } ..Display the coloured bricks on-screen.
PrintStuff } .Blit the Bat and Ball on to the display.
MoveBat } ...All the code for reading the joystick and moving the bat.
MoveBall } ..Updates the ball's position on the screen, and checks that it hasn't touched a brick.
Game } ..The Procedure which calls all the others.
Gram is split into separate parts called Procedures.
Although it is completely possible to write a program without using a single Procedure, they are a very good way of adding a little structure to your code. Generally you should try to include all the lines of Blitz Basic particular to a current task in separate Procedures.
The Procedures are defined using the words Statement EndStatement and they aren’t actually executed until the Procedure name is used by itself. In the listing, I’ve created six different procedures, as shown in the table below: When writing a program from scratch, it’s a good idea to plan it as though the code for the Procedures was already written. Write down all of the Procedures you think you’ll need, and only then start to write them. You might be wondering where the graphics for the BlitzOut game come from. Well, there are two ways of getting graphics into your game. The first way is to
incorporate them direcdy into your program, perhaps as a list of Plot, Box, Circle and Draw statements. The advantage of this method is obvious: your program is totally self-contained.
The second method is to create the graphics elsewhere, and then load them into the program when it is run. Blitz deals with pictures stored as IFFs (the standard supported by every Amiga program) without any bother.
The disadvantage off this method is that you need to keep track of where the files are: if you don’t get the file paths right, or if you rename the floppy disk, the program might fail in a particularly non-user friendly way.
It’s therefore a good idea to keep all your data and program files in a separate drawer. On the plus side, if you are free to load graphics you can make use of dedicated drawing tools. If you have a digitiser you could even include pictures of yourself in a game.
I created the graphics for BlitzOut using Deluxe Paint. The background is nothing more complicated than a 16-colour picture, and there are only two important features. Firstly, the Dpaint Grid- Lock option was set to eight in order to get the dimensions right, and secondly the blue background pattern was made by repeating the same 8x8 pixel pattern. This repetition is important when the program comes to erase the bricks which have been hit. Of course, you can create your own background image - as long as you make sure it’s a low-resolution (320 x 256) picture in 16 colours, it will be
perfectly suitable.
Creating the hat, ball and bricks is a little bit trickier. Again, they were originally drawn in Deluxe Paint but then converted to shapes using Blitz Basic's Shapes Maker program, which is a particularly clever sprites editor.
The Deluxe Paint bricks were eight pixels high by 16 long, the ball was 8x8, and the bat was 32 pixels long and 8 high. Try to keep to these dimensions if possible. The reason that the BlitzOut program is particularly simple, is that there are only two moving objects on the screen: The graphics for BlitzOut were created using Deluxe Paint in low-res, 16-colour mode.
The bat and the ball. The static bricks are all drawn in at the start and then you can just forget all about them. When the ball hits a brick, the brick is erased by overdrawing it with the background pat- tern. Handling the animation is done automatically by Blitz using the Buffer command.
Buffer reserves some space to store the background when a Shape is displayed with the Bblit command. Simply by performing an UnBuffer command every loop, the graphics are refreshed and the background is restored.
This technique works particularly well when there are only a few things moving about on the screen, which makes it ideal for BlitzOut and means that we don’t need to mess around with dual playfields or sprites just yet. But next month we’ll look in more detail at the code, examining in particular the various Blitz commands which make it all possible.
Hopefully by then you’ll have been able to get BlitzOut working yourself, and will soon be in a position to start adding your own features.

I introduced you to the realm of arcane delights that is the Internet, a place where satellite images of Mars happily rub shoulders with 1,500-year-old stories. There’s no denying the sheer amount of information on the Internet, but finding your way around it from a CLI-style interface is annoying at best and infuriating at worst. Fortunately, there is now an alternative, called the World Wide Web.
Although it is still being developed, the World Wide Web is designed to bring the Internet into the hypertext era.

Rwanda Rwanda - Travel Warning April 8, 1994 The Department of
State warns U.S. citizens to defer all travel to Rwanda. There
are reports of widespread violence in Rwanda following the
death of the president in Kigali., Rwanda, on April 6.
The U.S. Department of State has ordered the departure of all U.S. Government dependents and employees from Rwanda. U.S. citizens in Rwanda have been instructed to be prepared to depart the country This means that instead of specifying a long and tedious path to get hold of a file, you can download it to your machine by simply clicking on it from a list. With WWW, you can also find your way around an Internet site just by clicking on highlighted text.
The World Wide Web also has multimedia capabilities, so clicking on a highlighted name could get the machine to transfer an image of that person from the site to your Amiga. By clicking on a button you can also transfer sound samples V Liilll ¦!

As you'd expect, travelling to Rwanda is not a particularly good idea at present. Advice about whether it's safe to visit the world's troublespots is constantly updated by the US State Department on the World Wide Web.
Down the telephone line and play them on your Amiga. All this with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Sounds good? Well there is a catch. In order to use the Internet, you need to have a direct connection to the Internet through any of the Internet access providers (such as Demon Internet, 081 343 3881 or ExNet, 081 244 0077).
Because the connections provided by services such as CiX and some Bulletin Boards are not suitable.
A pretty fast modem -will also help, because the WWW involves sending a lot of data to and fro.
You also need Workbench 2 or above and you have to install a piece of software called TCP IP (short for Transport Control Protocol Internet Protocol), which handles the flow of data between your machine and the Internet. This software k PD, and should be widely available from any gooc Bulletin Board. On top of this, you need the soft ware which actually deals with the WWW, which k called Mosaic. Again, this is PD and should be available from a Bulletin Board or Internet site.

to: Letters To The Editor, Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth Street, Bath, Avon BA1 2BW.
Me most while wading through AF's mailbag were those from people who have 'come out of the piracy closet', so to speak.
Having read our piracy special in AF54, these people have done as we suggested - they've formatted their illicit disks and decided to actually buy the programs or games they want.
This impressed me on two counts: giving up free software is worse than trying to give up smoking; and if Amiga Format can make just a handful of people see sense then we've done a good job.
But let's not leave it there: the Amiga market won't stand up to this constant erosion by parasites who only care about their own personal gain.
Don't put up with it. Your Amiga's going to look a pretty sad machine when the software runs out. If you don't want to be the owner of a 32-bit paperweight, stop playing pirated games. Stop receiving pirated software. Stop going to shops that you know copy disks (I was in a store recently where a furtive assistant was running off copies using an 1200 and X- Copy) - or better still report them to FAST (0628 660377) who can act on your behalf; who can act on all our behalf s. OK so you may not end up with the biggest software collection in the world, but you can at least feel good about
yourself. And you just may help make the Amiga a machine worth writing for... CONSPIRACY THEORY Chris Cowan’s article A Secret Service: Privacy In Peril (AF59) about the Pretty Good Privacy program described how PGP not only gives the user military-standard encryption, but also gives the FBI, CIA, MI6 or KGB a few million Dollars, Pounds or Esso tokens worth of useless decoding equipment.
You may be interested in hearing what happened to the author, Phil Zimmermann, who lives in arguably the most democratic of democratic countries, the good old US of A. Well, he and his friends are being charged under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), because in his fair land, encryption devices are classed as weapons and it is a felony to sell his weapon overseas without a permit (I wonder if the US Government had the correct permit when arming Iran?).
By putting the derice on to the Internet he must have known that it would be distributed overseas, and this means he is being charged under the same regulations as an arms dealer. By the way, other felonies include arson and murder!
With the US Government saying that they will allow competition for the Clipper Chip (their new decoder chip which allows all forms of electronic communication to be democratically listened to by the FBI, if the correct warrants are obtained), this business of cracking down on PGP may seem to some people like taking it out of the ball game.
Why does the expression ‘Land of the free and home of the brave’ seem to smell a bit like bull?
Benjamin Nicholl, High Wycombe Just goes to show: it’s a free world - as long as you do what they tell you to.

Voyeur, would the CD-i version be better than a CD32 one? We think not.
Thank you for the article on Full Motion Video in AF58. Amiga Format is easily the best all-round computer mag, by the way.
The article was well presented and said that games using FMV will be introduced, but you didn’t mention if CD-i titles such as the excellent Palm Springs Golf, Voyeur and the improved version of Microcosm were comparable. Could you please enlighten me, because this will help me (and possibly others) to decide whether to purchase the product.
Mark Alan Smith, Essex For starters, Palm Spring Golf and Voyeur are neither MPEG, nor ‘excellent’: Palm Springs is the least controllable golf game Eve ever played, and Voyeur is as interactive as the name implies; that is, not very. No-one has seen CD-i Microcosm as yet, but while the Philips MPEG version may look slightly better than the CD32 version, it’s very doubtful it will play any better.
If by comparable you mean will these CD-i discs play on a CD32 - no. Sadly, the CD32 is far too powerful to run skanky old CD-i software... CD32 WET DREAM The CD32 already appears to have a firm foothold in the CD market, but Commodore need to keep upgrading their hardware to stay ahead of the competition. I suggest the following add-ons for the CD32:
1) An upgrade to include: 1Mb of Fast RAM to allow the CD32 to
run at full speed. A Floating Point Unit and Polygon Draw Chip
(similar to the SNES Super FX chip) capable of drawing one
million pixels a second and a Super Sprite Chip to scale and
rotate sprites. We could then have games like Wing Commander
and Virtua Racing with arcade-quality graphics and animation.
2) A widget similar to the (failed) Konix Multi-System from a
couple of years ago which gave analogue input from a steering
wheel, motorbike handlebars or aeroplane joystick (all
Continued overleaf THE BITS OM THE SIDE.. If you peel off the
bits of Sellotape from the AF Coverdisk bags, you can use them
to stick the Backstage subscribers' newsletters into the
inside front cover of AF, thus saving the Sellotape, and
keeping Backstage neatly with the correct mag.
Patrick, Inverness Does anyone else have any more top tips? If so, send them to Viz.
I have been trying vainly to pay a shareware fee to Tim Martin for the full version of his excellent SID II utility. Do you know where I can reach him?
Terry Kirkham, Bergen, Germany Tim now works for Innovatronics in the US (0101 214 340 4991), but you'd be better off buying Directory Opus (which he helped write) from Meridian Software (081-543 3500).
How's the new job then? What does it feel like to be in full-time employment? What Amiga do you own? Do you wish you had a SNES like all those other sad people? Are you going to stop putting too much stuff on the Coverdisks? Are you safe unlike that Dyson kid? Do you watch Brookside? Can you roll your tongue, stand on your head, wink with both eyes and write the Lord's Prayer on a stamp?
I would appreciate it if you could answer these interesting questions, before they put me to sleep, thanks.
Chris D, Bedfordshire it's great. I dunno: I've never been in iess-than-full-time employment. I haven't got one (I always borrow one from the office). I already have a SNES (haven't touched it for yonks, though). Nope. Define 'safe'. Yes - but I'm not addicted. And yes, yes, yes and no. Loony.
I read an advertisement in a recent issue of Amiga Format for Complete Amiga C, and would like to know if the package is still available because I am hoping to enroll on a programming course in C. Could I avoid buying a PC by using Amiga C on my A600? Is Complete Amiga C still available? If not, is another type of C available?
P Reece, Crawley MOT ESPECIALLY SPECIAL What a rip-off the AF Specials are! How can you justify charging £3.95 - the price of your excellent magazine - for an editorial which simply reprints many of the articles? And how come the price is the same as AF even though it doesn't have Coverdisks? I think it's a cheap way of weening more money out of readers.
Why not concentrate on the real AF instead of half-baked spin-offs!
David O'Conner, South Yorkshire
* ** The idea behind the specials is to introduce the world of
the Amiga - and Amiga Format - to people who might not
ordinarily buy the magazine. I agree that regular AF readers
don't really benefit, but a lot of the editorial was either
rewritten to bring it up to date, or produced especially for
that mag. The specials are designed to cover specific topics,
such as games, beginners or hardware, so at least you get all
that information in one place - which has got to be worth four
quid of anyone's money.
Dispel those fears: the AF book Complete Amiga C is still available, and contains everything you need to start programming in C on your Amiga, including the software! Turn to page 138 and bring some C into your life.
I recently moved from the PC to my A1200 and I am a great fan of RPGs like Ultima VII. Could you tell me the best RPGs on the Amiga (excluding Hired Guns because I already have that).
Andrew Harris, North Devon The Amiga Format Specials: are they totally invaluable reference guides or a complete and utter rip-off?
Rob Mead has kindly collated a list of the top Amiga RPGs. So, in reverse order, we have: with tactile feedback) to give games players more ‘feel’.
3) A hydraulic chair to go with this widget, that moves in
response to inputs for the ultimate games-playing experience
and to make the long walk down to the arcade unnecessary.
With these add-ons, I feel Commodore would leave the Japanese consoles choking on their silicon dust. Long live the Amiga!
Christopher Hine, Cleveland Well, Chris, this sounds more like a complete redesign than an upgrade!
Certainly to keep up with the new machines from Japan (which will be on import later this year), Commodore will have to revisit the CD32 at some time - CD64 perhaps?
1) The problem with upgrading hardware is that the new chipset
needs to be able to talk to the old chipset - and it’s
generally these lines of communication which slow down the
whole system. For optimum efficiency, it’s better to design
all the silicon and chip architecture at the same time -
hence, a completely new machine.
2) Analogue joysticks are all well and good, but ‘tactile
feedback ’ sounds expensive to produce and, let’s face it, a
decent joypad does the job adequately.
3) Ah, no. That’s where I draw the line.
This hydraulic chair idea has been knocking around for years - and I still Liberation: Captive 2 (9 10) Mindscape 0444 246333.

In AF59’s Gallery there was a picture titled King Tiger by Colin Hemmings. The picture in question was actually painted by the very talented fantasy artist, Rodney Matthews, and was used as the cover of the 1981 album Crazy Nights, by rock band The Tygers Of Pantang. I hope you will make it clear to your readers where the credit really lies.
Chris Lay, Bournemouth Credit where credit's due; still, it does takes some small degree of talent to copy something that accurately. I guess.
Think it’s dreadful. Too pricey, too much of a novelty, and no-one will write games for it, because only a few more-money-than- sense people would buy the stupid thing.
AMIGA IN EXTREMIS I have an idea for the ultimate Amiga meetings. We could get user groups to buy an old, abandoned outdoor movie theatre, and replace the movie projector with some equipment to project the Amiga’s display on to the screen at the front of the theatre and use the theatre speakers for sound.
The ground might be a bit muddy, but the area could be paved.
While we’re at it, we could put in one of those really big tents around the whole thing, so people could have meetings in the day.
The meeting place would become an Amiga convention centre with connections for each individual Amiga to hook up to the main Amiga system. This way, people could put their demos on the big screen, and everyone in the area would see them.
If we built such a centre, there would be a market for a new Amiga that would take advantage of all this new power. It would have zillions of colours, with a screen size of a million by a million pixels and about 1,000 sound channels. All this data would have to be stored somewhere, like on
CD. Better yet, it could interface directly to the brain, via a
neural connection. Then you could save files in your brain,
as long as you didn’t delete anything important.
The Amiga would have artificial intelligence too, so it could write its own programs. The Amiga would market itself, and everyone would be so impressed with it that they would get one. The Amiga would eventually have enough money to buy the entire universe, and build the Amiga (version infinity) using all of the matter in the universe.
Think of the kind of power you would have then! The entire universe would be an Amiga, and since the universe is expanding, it would need lots of expansion slots. Now doesn’t this sound really neat? No no, I’m serious, we should really do it.
Pete W Storonskij, Nebraska, USA But we don’t have outdoor movie theatres in the UK... GALLERY GRIPE I’ve been a faithful follower of Amiga Format from the days of ST(!)Amiga Format and never before have I ever felt the urge to put pen to paper.
But while glancing through AF58, I came across The Gallery section (page 183). Why did you give the winning slot to Neil Wilson?
I am referring to the fact that the picture by Neil, in my opinion, is not artwork and is in fact a ray-traced picture. Anyone with a couple of hours to spare can learn to use a ray- tracing program. I myself use Real 3D and Imagine V2.0 nearly every day.
In my opinion Mr Rhodes of Peterlee should have walked away with the prize. I thought his picture of the Battle Ork was far superior.
Why not have two sections in The Gallery: one for skilled artists and one for skilled ray-tracers?
Kicky, County Cleveland A ray-tracing package is merely a tool and in itself cannot generate good artwork: that still requires the skills of the person using it. However; I do sort of agree - ray- traced images have a special quality that endears them to the viewer, even though the image itself might not be that amazing.
However, the idea of two sections and two winners isn’t at all bad... COMPLETELY DRAB32 I recently went into an Allders shop where a person was deciding whether to buy a CD32 or a CD-i. When he commented about the ugliness of the CD 2, the salesman agreed, but did point out the superiority of the CD32.
The person walked out with a CD-i.
I know the CD32 is cheap, but does this mean it should look cheap?
Commodore urgently need to redesign the casing of the CD32 now.
Commodore also desperately need to bundle some decent software with the CD32. The only good game at the moment, is Wing Commander, and even this doesn’t show off the possibilities of CD storage. Games such as TFX or Rise Of The Robots would make a perfect bundle.
Finally, I think the name CD32 should be changed. Saying it’s 32-bit could damage sales in the light of the 64-bit Jaguar. Maybe Commodore should re-name it the Amiga MGS, which stands for Multimedia Games System. What do you think?
Steven Brown, Camberley So, apart from the casing, the games and the name, the CD32’s great? Seriously though, I agree. The CD32 casing was met with universal loathing: If you look up ‘drab ’ or ¦unsightly ’ in the dictionary it says ‘see CD32, Commodore’. Let’s hope Commodore’s new owners see fit to tweak the design slightly (like ditch it completely and start again). The name’s not so bad: most new games systems are 32-bit, and Jaguar’s only claim to 64-bitness is a very wide bus bandwidth. In reality it has two 32-bit processors (and it’s still crap).

THE MAM AT THE TOP The AF postbag has been packed with letters asking what's happening with CD32, the CD1200, and what the best option is for upgrading to CD.
Here Commodore UK Managing Director David Pleasance lays his cards on the table and explains exactly what the future holds.
Wsa THE FUTURE OF COMPACT DISC Well, I guess it's finally time to address what must be one of the most controversial subjects raised on these pages: the issue of CD1200 - to be or not to be? That is the question.
Firstly, let me correct a widespread misconception. We at Commodore UK have NEVER denied the existence of CD1200 to anybody at any time. Rather, we have been very vocal about our concern as to the benefits to you, the end user, of a product which takes computing into the very latest media format, but which does not provide for further technological development.
Let's get one thing straight, CD1200 is good, very good, as the news story in last month's Amiga Format fully endorsed.
If your desire is to be able to utilise the handful of programs such as the Fish Discs and Public Domain discs that are currently available, then the CD1200 will unquestionably fulfil those requirements. It will, of course, also play all CD32 games with no problems.
The CD1200 (contrary to some reports) will be released in all countries simultaneously, probably before Christmas, and it is estimated it will retail for £199.99. Now, I ask you to be aware that CD1200 does not support Full Motion Video, and it cannot be modified in any way to support it.
Perhaps you believe today that this will be of no consequence and if so, that's fine, the product will serve you well.
If, on the other hand, the idea of fully interactive games, with more depth and the realism of movie footage incorporated in the plot appeals to you, then I urge you to rethink your position.
The current Amiga CD32 pack. Spectacular Voyage, retails for only £249.99 and does provide for Full Motion Video through the optional module. For as little as £29.99 you can buy an interface cable (from Brian Fowler Computing) which connects your CD32 to your A1200.
Although the data transferrate is somewhat slower than CD1200, you do get the opportunity to upgrade later, when you can afford it, to utilise the exciting capability of Full Motion Video.
For those A500 and A600 owners who are wondering which way to upgrade, there is an interesting alternative worth considering: The Amiga CD32 Expansion. This is the base unit on which the CD32 sits (like a hi-fi stack system) which converts the Amiga CD32 into a fully- fledged 32-bit AGA computer. It has both serial and parallel ports, an IDE hard drive controller, an internal floppy drive and a separate keyboard and will come with a mouse.
This product will also be released simultaneously in all countries, probably before Christmas, and it is estimated that it will retail at £199.99. Either way, now you know all the facts, you can see that Commodore are providing all possible permutations and the choice is most definitely yours.
