Certainly there was no shortage of support for the machine, with everything from an packages to 060 accelerator cards to networking to a new SCSI link to the Roaster chip for the Opal card to an A1200 tower system on offer. Companies from the UK, Gennany and the US were in evidence, and they were all doing good business: they came, they saw, they bought Amiga gear And if there were any A1200s to be had they loo would have shifted in numbers. People want the Amiga. They want the 1200 and they would have paid handsomely to get one. Industry paper Computer Trade Weekly recently released details of a poll they ran among 50 computer and video game specialist retailers from all over the country'. When asked if they would like the Amiga back, a massive 82% of those polled said they did. And the reason is simple: they can sell Amigas. And then they can sell .Amiga joysticks, mice, hard drives, accelerator hoards, genlocks, digitisers - you name it. Then thev can sell Amiga software. And we all know what a great Christmas it's been for the Amiga, with dozens of top new' games and quite a few stunning new serious applications to boot. In the poll, the Amiga was the third best performing format behind (unsurprisinglyj the Mega Drive and PC, but in front of (surprisingly) PC CD-ROM and Super Nintendo. So the writing is on the wall for whoever gains control of the fate of our favourite machine: the future is looking bright. All they have to do is make the machines: retailers will stock them, the public will buy them and third-party companies will support them. An example of this is the confidence-boosting story which reached us of the launch of Cannon Codder 2. Sensible’s game sold 45,000 copies in two days - the sort of feat normally equalled only by the massivelv-hyped titles from the Sega and Nintendo camps. Similarly, Sensible World Of Soccer shipped 64,000 units into retail and they’re already ordering more! Lucky for them that the Amiga's a dead machine otherwise they'd have problems keeping up with demand...

Welcome to Amiga Format. By choosing this magazine you have just made a very wise decision: this is the world's most popular Amiga magazine. And that means more Amiga users know us, trust us and choose to read us than anyone else.
Why? Because Amiga Format's readers know they can trust our judgment and buying recommendations. Because we thoroughly test products, for one thing, and because we're not afraid to tell the truth.
No matter how harsh it may be.
The proof? Commodore itself regularly chooses Amiga Format to prepare special editions of the magazine to be bundled with its machines. And surveys have consistently shown that retailers trust Amiga Formats reviews above any other magazine.
So you know you can read Amiga Format with confidence. Welcome to the world's biggest community of Amiga users!
Steve Jarratt, Editor I Z I H z 0 £ M X ?
This Month In View After an all too brief stay on the world's best Amiga magazine Steve Jarratt is off to pastures new. See ya Steve!
Considering that Commodore is in a state of liquidation, no new machines are being produced and there are about three CDS2s on sale in the UK (if you can find them), it's been a surprisingly positive month for the Amiga.
First of all, we had the World Of Amiga Show at Wembley which happily boasted a turnout of over 6,000 loyal Amiga users. As well as highlighting the Amiga hardware, the show also played host to dozens of third-party companies flogging their wares, nearly all of whom had a new release on display.
Certainly there was no shortage of support for the machine, with everything from an packages to 060 accelerator cards to networking to a new SCSI link to the Roaster chip for the Opal card to an A1200 tower system on offer. Companies from the UK, Gennany and the US were in evidence, and they were all doing good business: they came, they saw, they bought Amiga gear And if there were any A1200s to be had they loo would have shifted in numbers. People want the Amiga. They want the 1200 and they would have paid handsomely to get one.
Industry paper Computer Trade Weekly recently released details of a poll they ran among 50 computer and video game specialist retailers from all over the country'. When asked if they would like the Amiga back, a massive 82% of those polled said they did. And the reason is simple: they can sell Amigas. And then they can sell .Amiga joysticks, mice, hard drives, accelerator hoards, genlocks, digitisers - you name it.
Then thev can sell Amiga software. And we all know what a great Christmas it's been for the Amiga, with dozens of top new' games and quite a few stunning new serious applications to boot.
In the poll, the Amiga was the third best performing format behind (unsurprisinglyj the Mega Drive and PC, but in front of (surprisingly) PC CD-ROM and Super Nintendo.
So the writing is on the wall for whoever gains control of the fate of our favourite machine: the future is looking bright. All they have to do is make the machines: retailers will stock them, the public will buy them and third-party companies will support them.
An example of this is the confidence-boosting story which reached us of the launch of Cannon Codder 2. Sensible’s game sold 45,000 copies in two days - the sort of feat normally equalled only by the massivelv-hyped titles from the Sega and Nintendo camps. Similarly, Sensible World Of Soccer shipped 64,000 units into retail and they’re already ordering more! Lucky for them that the Amiga's a dead machine otherwise they'd have problems keeping up with demand... This issue sees another couple of tweaks to your beloved mag. Firstly, we've redesigned Demo Zone and PD Update. 1 never quite saw the
point of separating what were ostensibly two sides of the same coin, and so they now form the glorious new PD Select, which you can examine in detail on page 81.
Much as it looks like we've just redesigned the section for the sake of it, we have actually listened to your opinions. Hopefully, our Public Domain section should be easier to find your way around, thanks to headings for every new product and box- outs on the bigger better items.
Similarly, following your comments on the new look of the games pages, we have reintroduced the ratings for graphics, sound, addiction and playability, and dumped the uppers and downers in favour of a final, savs-it-al! Verdict.
Again, this should make Afs review pages just about perfect, although we haven’t finished yet. If you have any comment to make on Afs design, content, writing style or whatever, don't be scared of writing in and telling us. We aim to make the mag better by giving you what you want. .And if we don't know what you want we can't do that, can we?
And finally, I have to report that after nine glorious months at the helm of this esteemed organ, sadly, I'm off to pastures new. My time on Amiga Format has been a real eye-opener: I never dreamed that a collection of plastic and wires and silicon could engender such loyalty from its users.
And it's not the loyalty of people who simply enjoy using a computer. Amiga owners really love their machines - I could never see a PC or Mac or console owner having such affection towards their hardware. Perhaps it's the fact that rather than being produced by some faceless corporation, or designed by some far-eastern conglomerate, the Amiga is the product of a small group of dedicated people. People who made themselves available to the machine's users, and who pul their heart and . Soul into sustaining the
• Amiga and kept the faith
- when all looked bleak.
I've really enjoyed my tenure on Amiga Format, and although I'm back off to console land. I'll still be keeping an eye on AF to make sure standards don't fall. See ya! He Flight of fantasy?
No... with a Blizzard or Cvberstorm Accelerator, your Amiga will fly!
If you've ever sat and waited for your Amiga to catch up. You'll know that an extra boost of power would be just the ticket.
But. The only problem is the cost... isn’t it?
Well not any more. When you compare our cost per MIP with other boards you'll be surprised at just how little you'll have to pay to enhance the performance of your Amiga computer.
Then, the sky’s the limit!

This exclusive demo of Digita's Datastore will help you keep track of dates, games, names and Afi Indulge in a special slice of one of the biggest Amiga games of all time! If war is hell, polish your horns and get stuck in... Caainon Fodder 2 There's a very small
chance that you may not have played any of the Cannon Fodder games before. In that case, Steve Bradley barks the orders... Once upon a time, there was a game called Cannon Fodder. It sold over one hundred thousand copies and remains a landmark in Amiga games.
It has returned, this time including a variety of themed worlds such as Chicago and Alien World, and four tough levels of Cannon Fodder 2 are also on the menu this month.
If you are unfamiliar with the concept, it goes thus: you are in almost complete control of four men. Four men who have guns. Four men who BACKING UP YOUR COVERDISK WEAPONS Once again, Amiga Format has dredged the sea of software to provide the very brightest treasures for your delectation and, no doubt, delight. Turn on, plug in and enjoy... Walk over the the box and you pick up four bombs or four missiles. Once collected, these extra weapons can be activated by clicking first on the right mouse button, followed swiftly by clicking on the left. But move sharpish or you'll get killed by your
own bomb. Which isn't funny (unless you're watching someone else).
Huts are full of enemy soldiers, who come pouring out when you're near. Destroy the huts first and cut down enemy numbers significantly.
Copying your Coverdisk is very simple. Just follow the stages below... m Cl a»»l SNIPER This chap can cut you down from a long way off.
So tread carefully. And warily as well.
Iboot up with your Workbench disk, and find the Shell icon, in your system drawer.
Double-click on this to go into the Shell.

Readers, who live or die through your ability to control a mouse. The responsibility is yours. Of course. Cannon Fodder 2 is a computer game and therefore fun. So if the chaps do happen to get wiped out (and you were solely to blame), there are always more to take their place.
You can choose which level you want lo have a blast at by. Somewhat obviously, clicking on whichever one takes your fancy on the menu screen. Levels one and four are modern-day Middle East affairs, while levels two and three offer you the chance to pit your wits against aliens. And when vou die. Which is inevitable, you will be whisked back to the menu screen whereupon you can. Very much unlike real life, have another go.
Information is strictly on a need-to-know basis, and indeed, the challenge w ould be lessened if we were to offer you walk-through guides of the levels. So the word is 'mum'. Go to it.

* Sq.irrel SCSI! INTERFACE NEW If you’re thinking about buying a
new peripheral for your A1200 or A600 then ... don't... until
you’ve considered our brand-new, plug-and-play SCSI 2 interface
and our exciting range of modern storage devices.
Named after the famous storage-hungry animal, the Squirrel'" SCSI 2 interface simply plugs into your PCMCIA slot and allows you to connect up to 7 (yes, 7!)
SCSI devices to your Amiga at the same time. Just think of it, a triple-speed CD-ROM, a SyQuest™ removable drive, a DAT drive, a Magneto Optical and a Tape Streamer, ail on-line and all available at any time!
All this is a reality with the amazing Squirrel™ SCSI 2 interface.
The Squirrel comes complete with SCSI software drivers, a host of useful SCSI programs (audio CD player, CD-to-HD sampler etc.) and is also extremely compatible with the CD32 so that, with a suitable CD-ROM drive, you can run games like Diggers, Brutal Football, Liberation, Pinball Fantasies etc. etc. But there is much more to SCSI than CD-ROM; SCSI is an industry-wide standard which means that you can the neat Squirrel SCSI interlace plug any SCSI external device into the Squirrel interface and daisy-chain units together. No longer are you forced into a closed solution - with Squirrel, your
Amiga will grow with your needs.
Incredibly, the Squirrel SCSI 2 interface costs only £69.95 including VAT and is available now from all good Amiga suppliers or directly from HiSoft.
To complement the Squirrel interface we have released a number of quality peripherals - professional Squirrel Storage Systems" at nutty prices!

Daiasto a 66 Issue Me: ______ DEC 1994 PageNuder. [66 | STRATEGY GAME |Syn City 2800 Score: 9ei 1 Datastore Betal Oenonstration §1994 Digita International ES-flmga Fornat Guide HmneSuide ? Record Browser Fomr Record 1 of 18 Everyone could do with a database some time. Whether you want to keep track of your burgeoning music collection, maintain a list of friends' and relatives' addresses or you simply want to keep track of the articles in your back issues of Amiga Formal, you’ll be needing a decent database. And. As it happens, they don't come any more decent than Digita's new Datastore.
Tzl Zt Viewing record 1 of 18 J 1 1A There's a complete record of every game and serious review ever printed in AF on your Datastore Coverdisk.
For the uninitiated, a database is a program that acts as an electronic filing cabinet. That is, it lets you store and organise information on your THE AF DATABASE To help you get the very most from your AF back issues, Digita have provided a demonstration database that lists each and every game and serious product ever reviewed in the hallowed pages of Amiga Format. If you wish to use this database, however, you must ensure that the second Datastore disk is called DS-Files. Use with the Rename... option from the Workbench Icons pull down menu.
Computer. What information you choose to organise is entirely up to you - a database simply provides a quick and easy method of compiling complicated sets of records which can be accessed in an instant.
For example, if you wanted to maintain a mailing list, instead of having to manually search for a given record within that list, you can simply provide Datastore with the surname of the person you're interested in and the program then extracts that record in a jiffy'.
What makes Datastore so special is its sheer ease of use and friendliness. If you've ever used a database before then Datastore will come as something of a shock - put simply, it's the most straightforward Amiga database ever. Much of the program's friendliness can be credited to its superb user interface which is based around the same excellent front end used by Digita's popular Worilworth 3.1 word processor. For professionals and first time users alike, Datastore is ideal.
With Datastore, you can quickly and easily create complex database files consisting of a variety of different field types including dates, text.
Boolean switches and even pictures. What's more, you can customise the appearance of your database records using Datastore's comprehensive range of drawing functions. Once you've designed your database to suit your own particular requirements, you can enter records and then extract the information you want using Datastore s powerful VCR-like record browser.
• This is a demo version of the full Datastore program. The print
function has been disabled and you are limited to 10 records.
Continued overleaf ¦* UNPACKING DATASTORE Datastore is such a big program that it will not run directly from our Coverdisk. In order to run it therefore, it must first be decompressed on to a separate set of floppy disks. Follow these simple instructions and you won't go far wrong.
3 After a couple of minutes, you'll be asked to replace the Datastore Coverdisk. Remove your first formatted floppy, label it Datastorel and then reinsert your Coverdisk. When prompted to insert a formatted floppy disk, replace your Coverdisk with your second blank formatted floppy and press the Return key again. The second Datastore disk will then be decompressed on to your floppy disk.
4 Once this second disk has been decompressed, remove the disk from your Amiga's internal drive and switch off your Amiga. Insert your first Datastore disk into your Amiga's internal drive, switch on your machine and your Amiga will boot from this Datastore disk. When Workbench 2 Insert your Datastore Coverdisk into your Amiga's internal drive and then switch on your Amiga. After a few seconds, an AmigaDOS window appears prompting you to insert a formatted disk. Remove your Coverdisk and replace it with one of your formatted floppies.
Once you've done this, press the Return key. The first Datastore disk will then be decompressed.
This may take some time so be patient.
1 Before you even attempt to boot from our Datastore Coverdisk. Make sure that you have two blank formatted disks at the ready (if you don't format a couple of disks from the Workbench now). These two disks will hold the Datastore program and associated files.
Dabblin * with Data d e HOW TO FIND YOUR WAY AROUND GOTO: The Goto option lets you jump directly to a specified record by telling Datastore the relevant record number.
NEW OPEN SAVE: Fairly obvious these. Use Open to read an existing database into memory, New to create a new database and Save to save the current database to disk.
FIND - As its name suggests, the Find option lets you search for a given record within your database without having to manually wade through each and every record (the traditional method).
£| (re rtiti |ii IBIBI LIBRARIAN: This provides a quick and easy method of inserting text which you use over and over again without having to retype it each time. Use this function when entering record data.

H % QUERY: The Query option lets you interrogate your database for information.
What makes this option so special is that it lets you display records based upon a search criteria - all females over 18 who are single, for example. This option is not available when designing your database form.

SURNAME ADDRESS o! Untitled Designing Record REPORT: This creates reports that list the contents of specified fields. So, you could generate a report that lists the birthdays of every person in an address book. This option is not available when designing your database form.
FIRST RECORD: Jumps directly to the first record in your database.
LAST RECORD: Displays the last database record.
NEXT RECORD: Flips to the next record.
PREVIOUS RECORD: Flips to the previous record.
SORT: The records that you enter into your database are not automatically sorted into order. Instead, your database must be sorted en masse using the Sort tool. Datastore lets you decide which fields your database is sorted on and in what order. Note that this option is not available when designing your database form.
INSERT NEW RECORD: Clicking on this button lets you insert a new record into your database. Once selected, a cursor appears in the first field, allowing you to enter information via the keyboard. After you've typed something into the first field, press the Tab key to flick to the next field. Do not use the Return key until the last field has been entered.

If you're suitably impressed with our demonstration version of Oatastore, why not shell out some readies on the full package?
Retailing for £69.99, it can be bought directly from Digita on 01395 270 273.
WORKING RECORD AREA: This area of the screen is where all the action takes place.
Records are displayed and new records created by editing the contents of this area.
Iwhen Oatastore is first loaded, a new database is automatically opened for you. By default Oatastore opens your database in design mode - the mode used to define the format of your database and the form which is used to display each record within that database. At this point no fields (the pigeon holes that hold information) have been defined so we need to start by creating at least one field.
Click on the Field tool from the Design toolbar and then click and, while holding down the left mouse button, drag out a rectangle of approximately the same dimensions as the one shown. A window labelled Field Information appears on the screen. This window lets you define the appearance and the type of data that your field will hold. Use the Name gadget to change the name of your field to something more relevant - Surname, for example. Once you're finished, click on the OK gadget to accept any changes you may have made.
2 Now that we've defined one field, let's define a second using exactly the same method. Use the Field tool again but this time define a field of the same dimensions immediately below your first field. This time, however, call it Forename when the Field Information window appears.
JU CREATING YOUR OWN DATABASE Nuiit kui krotr.fi j1W4 Mi ifilS fn»bx |DT« llwpeiuse I fcj m DM inw '•«£_!a!_I yj tto Hw Sm b _J BaWn JU JSLl iem] Mnlrt htll hwatrXtw ifM Ml FoffBIRf JtVOfi tKrtlKI t«J CAPTION TOOL: This tool lets you place text on to your database forms using any standard Amiga font. Captions can be used as labels or titles which are repeated on every record.
3 Now that we’ve defined the format of our records, let's enter some information into our database. Select the Edit Records option from the Edit pulldown menu and the Design toolbar is replaced by the Oatastore Record Browser window. This window lets you move backwards and forwards through your database and even enter new records.
Our database doesn’t contain any records at the moment so let’s enter something useful into our database. Click on the Insert Record button in the Record Browser and a cursor appears inside the first field. Enter your surname and then press the Tab key to move on to the next field. Once information has been fed into both fields, press the Return key. You have entered your first record.
FIELD TOOL: This all-important tool is used to create new fields which act as pigeon holes for each discrete item of information you'd like your database to hold. In an address book database, for example, you'd have a field for surnames, another for forenames and so on.
ARROW POINTER: Use this tool to modify any of the objects (boxes, fields and so on) that you may have already created.
4 A database with just one record isn't really that useful so enter a few more records using the same method detailed in step 3. Once you've entered a few records, have a go at searching for a record using Datastore’s Find tool.
Click on the Find gadget and a window labelled Find appears on the screen. This requester lets you search for a given record by feeding Oatastore something to base its search on - part of a name, a street name or whatever. Worth noting is the In gadget which lets you define which fields Datastore will search. By default all fields will be searched but you can speed the process up by limiting Oatastore to a single field.
GOT A PROBLEM WITH YOUR COVERDISK?
CALL 0191-385 2627 Your Coverdisk should be working fine, but if not, these hints, tips and corrections may sort out the problem for you quickly and easily.
MUSIC-X AF58 A600 owners, and anyone else with only Chip RAM, should follow the instructions for A1200 owners, otherwise they will find they have little room for samples. Also, many people seem to be getting a message regarding missing fonts. The fonts are on the disk, OK! If you boot up from the Musii-X program disk, like it says to do in the instructions, there is no problem.
PAGESETTER 3 SOLUTIONS Although it is not actually a Coverdisk. Some of you have been experiencing problems with PageSetter 3, the upgrade to our great PageSetter 2 Coverdisk (AF63) The problem seems to involve people running this software from a floppy drive. It has to be said that Gold Disk's install script and documentation are less than perfect.
Firstly, you do not actually have to run the floppy install program to run the software, you can just boot from disk one and run the program from disk two (although the print option will not work). To solve these problems, the easiest thing to do is make some additions to a copy of your Workbench disk. Here are the steps you should follow: If you want to boot off any other disk, copy the fonts into the FONTS: drawer of your boot-up disk. This is not complicated it is bow the Amiga works (and the PC and the Mac).
PAGESETTER 2 AF63 There are no problems with this program, but a few people seem to be having difficulty with fonts.
I’ngfSrttrr 2 works with CoinpuGraphic fonts, but it needs an ate file. If your font doesn't have one.
PagrSrllrr 2 won’t recognise it.
Assign Fonts: PS Fonts:Fonts Assign CGFonts: PS3Fonts:Fonts Assign s: PS Page:
3. Now save the file (using Escape then x if you are using ED)
and reboot your machine with this disk.
4. From Workbench, select and delete the Tools and Utilities
drawers (or otherwise make room for the library files).
5. Open a Shell and type the following: copy PS3lnstall:s page«?
S: copy PS Instalklibs FontEngine.library Libs: enddi (If you
are using a GB keymap, the superscript 3 is obtained by
pressing Alt-3)
6. Reboot from this disk again. Insert the PS3Page disk and
double-click on the program's icon. It should now run. And
print to your selected printer.
7. To install more fonts, you should use the original Install
program, because this updates the special font list PageSetter
uses to tell which fonts are available.
THEME PARK AF64 Not a problem, but a cheat for this rather good demo of a rather excellent game.
If you press the C. key during the loading screen a message appears, informing you that the cheat mode is active. You will now have lots of cash to buy oodles ol rides and things!
LIBS, FONTS AND ALL THAT There are lots of files and commands associated with the normal operation of software. You may not see them until you try to install software: I IBRARIF.S - These are compact routines which are compiled as a separate library. They contain commonly-used routines so programmers can write new utilities without having to re-code all the basic routines all the time. Libraries should Ih- located in the I.IBS drawer of your start-up disk.
F( ) IS - Amiga fonts come in many varieties, but tbe most common are bitmap fonts. The majority of programs use the system fonts, but some use their own. In this case, the font must be present in the FONTS: drawer of your start-up disk.
ASSK IN' - The assign command is used to make pathname shortcuts. It does this by creating a logical or virtual device - one that doesn't exist, but points to a pathname that does. The usage is: Assign device names path names So.

It must have been a surprise for everyone that the World Of Amiga Show took place at all.
Not only did it take place, but it was a thoroughly wonderful gathering. Lasting three davs at the Wemblev Exhibition Centre, there were some wild, weird and indeed wicked things on display.
FREE TICKET TO COMPUTER FAIR Those of you who are still smitten with show fever should not worry. The Bruce Everiss All Formats Computer Fair runs throughout the year and there's plenty of stuff for Amiga users, and for those who want to look back on the nostalgia of the C64 or the Spectrum. To get you in the mood we have signed up an exclusive deal to allow you free entry to any of the shows up until the end of April.
We're really sorry, but the only way this can work is if you cut out the coupon below because no photocopies will be accepted. The venues and dates are all on the ticket so off you go and have a good time.
Exhibitors came from all over the world with representation from Europe, Australia and the USA.
It has to be said that it was not the biggest Amiga show ever, but it was certainly the most interesting. In spite of the question mark hanging over the Amiga there were an awful lot of new, exciting and groundbreaking things on display.
ALL FORMATS COMPUTER FAIR WINNERS!
Every day of the World Of Amiga Show. Amiga Format held a reader's raffle, the prize for which was a rather desirable CD" bundle In typical form, nobody who won was still there at the end of the day to collect the prize, so it looks like we'll have to post them.
Those ever-so-lucky winners were: Mr AP Payne of Basingstoke.

However, the Wakefield- based software house also receive the Northern Nonce award, because one of their number was seen to retire to bed leaving one-and-a-half pints of Guinness unattended in the hotel bar. Booo.
NEW CYBERSTORM On the slightly more useful side, GP Software had come all the way from the land down under to demo Directory Opus 5, due for release soon. They were also showing the latest versions of C.Pfax. and EasyLedgers, reviewed in Issue 66.
If speed is your thing then you should have popped along to the Harwood stand, where the prototypes of the Cyberstorm 060 accelerator were on display. This monster of megaflops was clocking up over 80MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second) without breaking into a sweat. The result is TOWER SENSATION!
To those of you with an A1200, watch out for a full review of the A1200 Tower from Ramiga. This rather excellent piece of kit was on display at the World Of Amiga Show and attracted much attention, as indeed it deserved to. The Tower concept is simple - take an A1200 motherboard out of its case and install it in a Tower- style box. This gives you the ease-of- use and sturdy construction you need, especially if you want to mount extra devices such as multiple hard disks and CD-ROM drives. More than this, the Ramiga Tower gives you four Zorro II compatible slots, so expansion is no longer a
problem.
The Tower will also have space for multiple disk drives and a connector for a PC-style keyboard. Emulation for Amiga keys is hard-coded to avoid any incompatibility problems.
An engine which can do anything approximately four times faster than a stock A4000 040. Unfortunately, the Cyberstorm will not be available until Motorola make some more 060s. At the moment there are only two in the hands of the German developers, but shipments in significant numbers should start soon.
Those of vou with printers will be pleased to hear that Jeff Walker, who was ? 1 Jeff Walker Column E3Ph “Although this wasn't the biggest Amiga show, it was certainly the most interesting."
Running the Just Amiga Monthlystand, has now got stocks of Studio Printer Software VZ This is a new version of the rather excellent printer utility developed by Wolf Faust, and will be reviewed in the next issue of Amiga format.
Frank Hoen of Communicator fame came along to the outrageously large and busy Amiga format stand to show us Communicator 2. A new and improved method of connecting your CD *2 to any Amiga, and transferring data at realistic speeds. Once again, we'll have to crowbar a review of that into next Issue. The outrageously tall (6’6~ at least) Mr Hoen also had a Helm update about his person, which he is hoping to distribute in the UK.
If anyone is really interested in emulating out-of-date operating systems, a new version of PC, Task was on display, which supports various memory options enabling you to run some rubbish called Windows and attempt to master slow and unwieldy "professional" software.
.All in all it was a momentous event, and rather like Agincourt, all those that missed it should forever feel accursed they were not there. Or at least make the effort to come to the next one. '5 If you didn't visit the World Of Amiga Show at Wembley, you missed the best Amiga exhibition there has ever been in this country. Never mind how many exhibitors there were or how many people came through the doors - although neither figure is actually anything to be ashamed of. I'm talking about quality, not quantity. Never before have we had an Amiga show where games took a back seat while Amiga
applications and hardware companies from around the world demonstrated their wares to eager audiences. For instance. Phase 5 were knocking people's socks off with their 68060 accelerator and a new graphics card that had people gaping at its performance and gaping wider at its low price. Phase 6 were sharing a fairly large stand with Gordon Harwoods, who had also roped in Canon to show off the new colour bubble jets printing from Final Writer.
As this trio was just across the way from me on the JAM stand I couldn't help but notice how busy they all were.
Next door to me were Blittersoft, who had pulled off the quite amazing feat of persuading Jim Drew of Utilities Unlimited to fly over and demonstrate Emplant with the Mac and prototype PC modules. Half an hour after opening time each day there was a crowd around Jim and Emplant. This crowd did not disperse until after the show had closed and they were (politely) threatened with physical ejection by security staff. Incredible to think that up until two weeks before the show Jim didn't actually have a passport. Bet he's glad he made the effort; I know his customers were, even if the PC module is
still not yet finished, although Jim did publicly give a definite shipping date of mid-January.
ALMATHERA LAUNCHED Photogenics at the show and it seemed to me that every other visitor was walking around with a copy. What a smashing package they've put together there. Each of their daily theatre sessions was packed out within minutes of them being announced. Even the 2.30pm Sunday session was busy - just two hours before the end of the show when traditionally the only people left wandering around are a few thrifty souls hoping for last-minute bargains.
I didn't get to talk to as many exhibitors as I wanted to because I could rarely get away from my own stand.
But when I did get away for 10 minutes here and there, everyone I spoke to was at least "happy" and mostly "overjoyed" with what was happening. There was relief in the air. While the doomsayers continue to shout loudly about the demise of the Amiga market just about every exhibitor at WOA will tell you a different story.
DON'T LET anyone kid you the Amiga is dead. Far, far from it. Everywhere I looked at WOA I saw distributors and developers from around the world in huddles doing deals. Ramiga International's comfy sofas were so packed with them that at times they outnumbered the visitors to the stand.
You showed us that you are happy - no, eager - to invest in your Amigas, and the trade is already responding by making even larger financial commitments to even longer-term Amiga projects. The companies that matter now have an unshakable confidence in the future because you have shown that you have confidence. There are certain US companies who say that the European market where in the past 85% of all Amiga sales were made, is lost and that the "untapped" US market is the future. Do me a favour, will you? Before you go to bed tonight get down on your knees and pray that none of these
flag-waving, shortsighted companies end up with a stake in what is still the best personal computer that's ever been built.

"The latest issue of A miga I’oioeris currently something of an enigma. As 1 write, although we've got a fantastic demo of Super Skidmarks, and some great cows on wheels on the cover, the actual game hasn't turned up for review yet. Will it arrive in timer Or will we have to endanger our lives once again, working around the clock to till those pages with something equallv exciting?
"Onlv by buying the new Amiga Power can you find out. What I do know, though, is that we've got lots of other reviews, a demo of Shadow lighter (the best beat-em- up on the Amiga), a complete guide to The Strange World Of The Amiga, and part two ol Cam's Cannon Fodder 2 tips.

Invaluable utilities and exclusive upgrades to existing packages.
Inside there's the same essential mix of reviews, tutorials and advice, but there's a whole new section dedicated to helping serious Amiga users get the most out of the Coverdisks (both the ones on Shopper and Amiga Formal). For instance, the new.
Redesigned issue has an in-depth feature on the AF67 AMOS Professional Coverdisk.
And to make room for ail these wonderful new items. Amiga Shvpperis Here's a computer joke. Is the Pentium sticker found on many computers in these modem days really there for information, or is it a warning? Thank goodness it's a new year that's all I can say.
Because I need a fresh start to cope with the piece of news from Intel regarding its flagship PC chip. It's going to take me a year to work out what Intel actually mean when they say that the bug in the Pentium chip will only occur once in every 27,000 years (or whichever other figure it came up with). Does this mean that the error could occur twice every 54,000 years? I would assume so. Because as far as I'm concerned this means that it can happen. Full-stop.
Well most Of us have a feeling about our luck.
Someone tells me that I've got a 50-50 shot of winning £100,000 and I think: "Great there's a 50 per cent chance of not winning". If someone explains that there's a 10,000-1 chance of me having a piano dropped on my head on a Tuesday, then bingo! I don't go out on Tuesdays. It's subjective... ? |TimSmith Column |P~1|i?-i Steve Bradley rounds up all of the latest news from the wide and wonderful world of Amiga games.
Too much Chaos So the notion that a bug has occurred in one of the prime pieces of hardware to have been thrown at us from every media source you can think of is not really as bad as all that honestly, doesn't really sit that well. Like I said, it's subjective. Bear with me.
Because I'm biased about this anyway. I'd like to make an analogy. What for example would happen if Boeing were to bring out a passenger aircraft whose artificial horizon only went squiffy once every 27,000 years? Would you get on it? Would anyone? I believe that they would and this would be a good thing. I am also sure that OJ Simpson will get a fair trial and that the Royal Family's problems affect my everyday life. And what does all this mean to the Amiga and its many ardent fans?
Well first of all, it means that this time, people can see that what everybody had taken as being a given Good Thing is in fact a Less Than Good Thing. In fact it's a Faulty Thing, People might start to think for a moment.
And they might realise that, for the average computer user, what you need is a cheap, reliable, expandable computer. Secondly, it gives Amiga users one more reason to feel a bit bloody smug.
OK, SO may bG Commodore have screwed up once or twice on their marketing, and on the fact that they underestimated the reality that 'a games' machine could do far more than the marketeers ever expected the guys who put the thing together were always aware that the architecture and software were more versatile than simple sprite throwers the Amiga has always done its basic job. And that is to be a computer.
The Amiga can, has, and will continue to live without the hype and the marketing budgets that claim that a £2,000 PC is the best computer ever... well for three years by which time your £2,000 has miraculously turned into £899.
The A500 and A1200 have provided the people who use them (many of them because they can't afford the prices charged for Pcs or for the 'people's computer1 the Mac) with more than enough power and more than enough expandability to create, equate and play. Of course I could be over-reacting to all this. Who really wants reliable computing when the Pentium not only brings you computing power but also a free gamble every time you use it?

Worms is described by Team 17 PR fellow Alan Bunker as. "a cross between lemmings and Cannon Fodder . He always did talk a good game. The action takes place over a multi-directional scrolling landscape where up to four platoons of four worms do battle using a variety of weapons. A multiplayer option allows up to 16 people to play at once. It sounds fascinating, but you'll have to wait till April before you can play it.

awaits you and your Amiga in the place they call Cyberspace.
Somewhere out there in the strange world that some people refer lo as Cyberspace, weird things are going on. In California, a PD author is uploading the latest version of his program to an Internet site. Within a few hours, it will be transmitted to similar sites around the world for millions of Amiga owners to get hold of.
In Ireland, an Amiga owner is answering a technical query posted by another Amiga user in America a couple of hours ago. In various places around the world, a group of Amiga owners are talking about a new graphics card that one of them has bought. They are talking in real The daily satellite weather map from the Metnet Bulletin Board. You can download it and study the weather at your leisure.
Time, despite the fact that they are many thousand of miles apart.
In Germany, somebody laughs out loud at the latest proposal on how to destroy the world that somebody has posted to a Usenet Newsgroup. In Bath, the editor of an Amiga magazine reads the comments of some of his readers in a Fidonet Echo and replies to them.
Does this sound like some weird science fiction novel? Something dreamed up by a crazy Californian visionary? Well, it may sound unreal, but all of these examples are true. Every one of the people mentioned is a traveller on the information superhighway.
There has been, in recent months, an unprecedented amount of hype about how Comms and the Internet in particular is going to change our lives. TV programs have talked about how it could revolutionise the way we communicate with each other, with information on an immense number of subjects available at the touch of a button. So what will this actually mean to you? As an Amiga user, you are already on the cutting edge of technology. In fact, .Amiga owners have been one of the first groups to get seriously into the Comms revolution. All around the world, thousands of Amiga owners are
communicating over vast distances and exchanging information and programs. This is the first part of the Comms revolution - E-mail.
Imagine writing a letter without paper.
That’s what E-mail is about. Instead of printing it out, sticking it in an envelope and nipping down to the post office, you type in your message, call up a local BBS or E-mail server and your message is sent winging its way across the globe.
Although there is no paper involved, it works in a similar way to a normal letter. At the start of the message is an address, and die computers use this to work out where to send the letter. For instance, to send messages to this magazine on the Internet, you would use the E-mail address amformat@futurenet.co.uk. This address identifies who the message is going to, and any computer on the Internet can look at this address and work out where to send the message. It's exactly the same as Continued owerleaf -» GETTING STARTED To get into Comms, you need three things: an Amiga, a modem and a
telephone line. I'll assume you already have the first and the last but the modem is often a source of confusion.
A modem (short for modulator-demodulator) is a device which takes the digital information (bits and bytes, a series of electrical pulses) which your Amiga sends out and transforms into an analogue form. If you pick up the phone when a modem is using the line, you'll hear a rather unpleasant screeching noise, which is the analogue signal being sent out by the modem.
This is sent down the telephone line and a modem at the other end takes this hideous noise and turns it back into digital form, which is then sent to another computer. This process works in both directions, so data can be sent and received by your Amiga. Because the information is digital, it could be anything from a PD program to a sound sample of a cow going Moo.
Many different types of modem are available, but the important thing to bear in mind is how fast the modem can transmit and receive data. In order to ensure that the different types of modem can talk to each other properly, several standards have been set up, which cover how the data is sent between the modems. These are the V standards. As the technology of modems has moved on, newer modems which can send data faster have been designed. To keep up with this, new standards appear every now and then. The latest (and fastest) standard is V.34 (also known as V-Fast).
Usually, the faster the modem the more expensive it is. However, a more expensive modem saves on phone bills, so it's a question of working out what sort of use you are likely to make of your modem before deciding whether to go for economy or speed.
For instance, you could probably pick up a cheap modem for as little as £40, but this would be very slow and would probably take around 25 minutes to download a 300K file, which would cost you approximately £1.25 if you were calling long distance.
A new V-Fast modem would cost you over £300, but it would download the same file in around 2 minutes, costing you about 15p in phone ou a few quid extra, but it could save you a lot in phone bills.
Calls. As you can see, an expensive modem can save you a lot in phone bills if you regularly call long distance and download large files.
A TYPICAL INTERNET WORLD WIDE WEB SESSION Connecting to the Internet World Wide Web is similar to connecting to a BBS, except that you can use the mouse to choose where you go. If a word or image is highlighted, clicking on it takes you to another World Wide Web page. Let's see what's out there.
Intangible Assets Manufacturing And this is what one of the companies has got to say for themselves.
THE FIDONET EXPERIENCE another and sends a single file containing all of the messages. Through this process a message typed on one BBS can spread around the world within a few days. Because each BBS only has to call one other, there is no central computer, and the phone bills which result are spread around the various different BBS in the network.
The Fidonet network carries a series of echoes, each of which is related to a specific subject. For instance, the echo called Amiga UK is designed for Amiga owners in the UK. Amiga Mags is an echo where people discuss Amiga magazines, including, of course, this exceptionally fine example of one. There are several hundred echoes on subjects as diverse as cookery, ancient history and politics. In fact several new networks have recently sprung up, including a rather interesting one called AmigaNet which is dedicated entirely to the Amiga. Ask your local Sysop if he or she carries it or if they
knows of a local BBS which does.
Fidonet certainly isn't perfect but it is a relatively simple and extremely friendly network.
Most BBS are run by people who are more than happy to help new users, so you can always ask for help if you aren't sure. If you are a newcomer to Comms. A local BBS which is a member of Fidonet is an excellent place to start.
FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH: THE INTERNET Many universities have placed the information on their database on line, so if you need information, you can probably find it somewhere. Many companies are also beginning to realise the potential of the Internet. For instance, Paramount recently set up a site where you can download images and sound samples from the latest Star Trek film. There are also a number of places on the Internet which hold several gigabytes of Amiga PD and Shareware, all of which can be easily downloaded.
However, there is a price to pay. Getting connected to the Internet is not simply a question of dialling another computer with your modem.
While connecting to a local BBS is free (except for the phone bill) you have to pay access charges to get on to the Internet. The only possible exception to this is students, because many colleges give them some form of Internet access. Several of the commercial E-mail services offer different levels of Internet access which include the ability to send and receive messages from Internet users around the globe.
There are several companies which offer a full Internet connection, but only a few offer support for Amiga users. To get fully connected to the Internet you also need some software to enable Way back in 1984, a man named Tom Jennings had an idea. He was running a successful Bulletin Board in California, but he was frustrated that the messages that his users typed in would go no further than his own BBS. So he got together with a neighbouring BBS and developed a way for both systems to exchange mail. Each night, one BBS would call the other and send all of the messages which had been entered
that day.
This meant that a user could type in a message on one BBS, and users of the other would be able to read and reply to it on the other. Within a few months, numerous other BBS joined in, and within a year, several hundred BBS all over America were exchanging messages. Soon, this network of BBS spread around the world and today there are somewhere in the region of 30,000 Bulletin Boards worldwide on the Fidonet network. Incidentally, Jennings' brainchild is allegedly called Fidonet because he named it after his dog.
It works in a very simple way. Once a day, every BBS in the network calls another BBS and sends the messages which users have typed in. At the same time, the BBS receives messages which have been typed on other BBS. Some of the systems act as hubs, or central points where a number of BBS call for their messages. Every night one of these hubs calls I would be surprised if there is anybody in the known universe who has not heard of the Internet. Sometimes referred to as the information superhighway, this global network of computers has recently been the subject of a media feeding frenzy. Even
News At Ten has had a few stories about how this network is going to change the entire nature of human existence.
The origins of the Internet go way back to the late Sixties, the US Department Of Defence decided they wanted to set up their own network, which should be capable of surviving minor problems such as a nuclear attack. The resulting network (DARPANet) quickly grew, and American universities and colleges were included.
In the mid Seventies, the Defence Department decided to build another network for themselves, so they handed over the old one to the universities and colleges. This quickly incorporated several new networks and became known as the Internet.
This is now the biggest network ever, with something in the region of 16 million people around the world with access to it. There is a vast amount of stuff on it ranging from information on the history of the abacus to discussion groups on zoology.
writing Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth St, Bath, Avon on the front of an envelope.
When you call a BBS or set up an Internet account, you are given your own address, and anybody can use this to send a message to you. But having an E-mail address is no use if you can't talk to a group of people at once. This is where the second part of Comms comes in: conferences. On every type of E-mail service, there are a series of conferences (called Newsgroups on the Internet or echoes on Fidonet) on an absolutely huge range of subjects.
And these subjects aren't limited to computers - most services carry conferences on everything from astronomy to zoology. If you write a message in one of the conferences, it is then spread to all of the other systems which participate.
So, if you have a programming query, you could put a message in one of the programming conferences, and within a few days people all over the world could potentially be reading your thoughts and opinions. They could then send helpful (or unhelpful) replies by the same route, which would eventually find their way back to you. However, everybody else who reads that conference could also read the message and the reply, so you could be helping any number of people if it’s a common problem.
These conferences are more than just problem-solving forums. Many are based around discussions on issues of the day, so you could easily find yourself discussing why it's a bad idea to put VAT 011 fuel bills with a group of people that you have never met and are never likely to meet.
The third thing which could make you a certified Comms freak is files. Imagine having the entire contents of all the world's I’D libraries only a phone call away.
Instead of hating to call a PD company and wait several days for the disks to arrive.
Your Amiga to talk to the other computers which form the Internet. This requires that every computer sends data in a certain form, called the Transport Control Protocol Internet Protocol (TCP IP). Software to do this on the Amiga is easily available, thanks to some nice chaps at a Finnish university. They have produced AmiTCP, which allows any Amiga running Workbench 2 to access the Internet. This software should be available from any good BBS or PD library.
You could have the latest PD and Shareware programs on your Amiga in a few minutes.
All you need to do is to call up your local BBS or Internet site, tell it which file you want and it is transferred on to your machine. Not only this, but many PD authors upload their stuff themselves, so you can always get hold of the latest version of a program. This is especially important if you want lo keep up to date in the never-ending war against viruses, because you can always get hold of the latest virus checker.
But it’s not just a question of getting hold of PD programs. Many universities and other educational establishments are also on line, so you can raid their archives for books, clip art or any number of other things. There are also a number of tools which enable you to search for liles by specific key words, so you don’t have to wade through epic lists of filenames. It's like having several gigabytes worth of disk space 011 your machine.
Have I convinced you yet? Well, it seems that many people have already been convinced, because somewhere in the region of IB million people now have access to the Internet, and many thousands of people regularly call BBS, Can you afford to be left behind?
If you are a newcomer to Comms, one of the first things you need to do is find a local Bulletin Board System (BBS) to call.
There are several hundred BBS around the country, and many of these are run 011 Amigas or have sections dedicated to ¦Amiga users.
Most Bulletin Boards are run by people in their spare time, although they are far from being amateur affairs. The people who run them (who are referred to as System Operators or Sysops) are invariably very dedicated people who give Metnet Triangle 01482 473781 01482 442251 One of the most colourful Bulletin Boards in the country, Metnet is also one of the best. And it just so happens that it's also the official Amiga Formal BBS, so you can send us all your messages, letters and questions 011 it.
Aspects 0161 792 0260 A very well respected Bulletin Board which caters for all types of machines. Aspects carries a particularly wide and diverse range of echoes 011 many subjects and is thoroughly recommended.
01 for Amiga 0171 377 1358 One of the oldest-established BBS in the country, this Amiga-only BBS has a vast amount of software on-line and an immense range of echoes. 'Zf Fancy entering competitions in Amiga Format? We are happy to accept entries by E-mail.
Message List... ;fcirfrr-TuiS’ir.SuaP Many people don't see the point of commercial services such as CiX (Compulink Information exchange) or CompuServe. After all, their argument goes, if you can get at all of this stuff free through your local BBS. Why should you bother with services which cost money?
The answer to this is very simple. Although many BBS are run in a very professional manner, the sysop doesn't make any money out of them, so he (or she) can't afford to spend lots of money on expensive equipment. A commercial service, however, can and does do this. For instance. CiX has somewhere in the region of 50 gigabytes of disk space, and most of the best Amiga Public Domain and Shareware programs find their way there eventually. What Sysop could afford that much disk space?
There are a variety of commercial services of this type. The biggest one in the UK is CiX (Voice: 0181 390 8446, modem: 0181 390 1244), which has several thousand users. There is a £25 setting up fee for a new account but the charges are a very reasonable £2.40 per hour (off peak). The other big system in the UK is CompuServe (Voice: 0800 289378), which began life in America. Although CompuServe now has a UK base, it is still heavily biased towards the US, with the billing being in The Amiga has two excellent off-line readers for the CiX service, including Lucy by Toby Simpson.
Answers) within minutes or hours as opposed to the days that Fidonet can take.
And there’s more to it than talking about computers. Most commercial services will have areas on any number of subjects, ranging from anatomy to hill walking via philosophy. CiX, for instance, had a grand total of 2,576 conferences at the time of going to press. And if you can't find one about your pet subject, you can just go ahead and create your own.

A newcomer to this scene is Rupert Murdoch's Delphi service (Voice: 0171 757 7150). Once again this has a heavy bias towards all things American, but at least your bills aren't determined by the exchange rate. There is a strong Amiga presence on Delphi on-line and it boasts a wide selection of other delights such as the opportunity to chat live with Net guru Dave Winder. There are too many billing options to detail here, so call Delphi for more details.
Although all commercial services cost you money, it needn't be an overly expensive business. For instance, if you use an off-line reader (a program which automatically calls the service, collects together all your messages and allows you to read them without having to stay on the phone), you could easily keep the cost down. Another reason why commercial services are worth investigating is that they are usually the haunt of the real hard core of Amiga users.
Post a technical query on a service such as CiX and you are likely to have an answer (or even several up large amounts of their own time to provide a service for others. At the risk of sounding moralistic, this is a fact well worth remembering when you call a BBS.
Most BBS are computers linked 10 a single phone line. Many have phone lines dedicated to the BBS, but some share the telephone wilh other occupants of the house, so don't forget to check if the BBS only runs at certain times before you dial, because there are few thing more irritating in life than having a modem squealing at you when you've just got out of bed to answer the phone.
Although we don't have the space for a comprehensive list of BBS telephone numbers, here arc a few which you may find useful. All of these run 21 hour services. If you can't find one in your local area, most of these also enable you to search through a list of BBS by dialling code, so you should be able to find one which is only a local call away.

It’s the inevitable Sex and Romance issue!
SoftWood Software will go down in history, the best there’s been... for ages.
T I he way we all communicate today has evolved through centuries of development and change.
Prehistoric man set the ball rolling when he used cave pictures as a means of describing his hunting conquests. Probably the most famous of all 'picture writing' techniques was that used by the Egyptians.
Known as Hieroglyphics, which means ‘sacred carved inscription', this ancient form of information technology quickly spread to all parts of the Mediterranean region.
Gradually pictures were rationalised and both numbers and letters were eventually formed.
The Greeks were the first to use these letters in a way that is familiar to us all, and they in turn passed ihis knowledge on to the Romans. It was then that an alphabet was formed using only capital letters: the basis of most of today's languages. Inscriptions in stone, often filled with lead or bronze, eventually gave way to clay tablets, papyrus and ultimately parchment Itreated animal skins). By AD 100 parchment and papyrus books were being created. Another 600 years passed before books began using capitals for headings and small letters, known as half unicals', for the main body of lexl.
Although still made by hand, pages were easier to produce and became far more legible in the process. It was the mid 15th century before sets of small interchangeable metal letters were arranged, inked and pressed against paper to form an impression. The start of a printing process that was a less labour intensive way of spreading the written word was here. It was so successful, that with continual refinements, it remained the industry standard until the 1950’s. Since then, the process of offset litho printing has replaced 'hoi melal type'.
The biggest leap in the presentation of languages has probably been achieved in the last ten years. With the adoption of computer generated text as a new standard, complicated layouts can now be designed and printed at the touch of a few keys.
And it doesn’t stop there. Archiving and record keeping works hand in hand with these new methods of processing lexl and allows far faster methods of data retrieval than ever before. This latest technology has revolutionised the world of print, and has opened the door to an explosion of communication possibilities.

Steve McGill waxes lyrical on the history of the one-on-one beat-em-up before reviewing two of the latest bone crunching games of the genre to be released.
You might argue that beat-em- ups represent a contextualised adolescent rite of passage that focuses on theoretical and experiential exploration, symbolic enactments and relational gendered oppositions realised through a synthetic anima which strikes a chord with the ingressability and internality of the human psyche.
Then again, you might argue that the above is a load of pretentious tosh, written as a cheap joke, about a game genre which, despite being overdone for the last few years, still represents one of the most enjoyable and rewarding game types that can be engaged in with a computer, a friend, and a joystick.
W » ?
Tt 3 tt a IU Ik But it wasn't always so. The beat- em-up first saw the light of day in 1984 with a peculiar affair called Kung Fu Master. It was from Data East and it was a left-to-right scrolling game, where your character could kick and punch, or duck and kick and punch a load of people who rushed toward him. He knocked them away, and if the player made any headway, they'd find that there were several villains to sort out and a level structure. In all, a promising beginning. But that was still a one-player game and not the face-to-face, one-on- one beat-em-up that we're used to now.
The first one-on-one to appear in the arcades was Karate Master. It took place on a log spanning a ravine, and although it was popular, it never really hinted at the explosion that was about to take place in the blossoming home computer field. (If you want to check out what Karate Master was all about, contact F1 Licenceware, they have a decent PD version in stock.)
There's some controversy about what ignited the beat-em up explosion.
AF reckons the first beat-em-up that could be played at home was Kung Fu.
Released for the ZX Spectrum in 1984 by Bug-Byte, it featured unusual vector graphics.and took quite a bit of playing around with to get used to. Incidentally, it cost £6.95. It was a pre-indicator of what was to come and a commendable effort that deserves to be remembered as the first home computer beat-em-up.
SMASH AND GRAB The first game to smash the games playing public in the face and alert them to the new order in game genres was Way Ol The Exploding Fist. Designed by top software house of the time (1985), Melbourne House. It featured two identical fighters (one dressed in black, the other in white), several different backgrounds and 16 fighting moves; each one corresponding to the individual positions of the joystick with the fire button pressed or released.
Some people, myself included, let it take over their lives for weeks until, eventually, they started dreaming about the best combinations of kicks and punches to pull off against human opposition. Very sad indeed. There was a one-player mode, but it was too easy.
The computer presented little opposition - a problem that still hinders many latter-day presentations.
Batiis of the But the floodgates were opened.
System 3 released International Karate in early 1986. Though not as successful as Exploding Fist (it looked and played too much like a clone) it sold enough units to encourage System 3 to try again.
1987 brought International Karate +.
Considered by many to be the best release on any platform ever, IK+ added the novelty factor of an extra computer- controlled fighter on screen at all times.
This meant that, even if you chose to play a two-player game against an inferior friend, the result couldn't be guaranteed every time. The computer player was the wild card.
1987 also witnessed the worst year for takings in the arcades since the Space invaders revolution. A combination of waxing interest in home computer games - 16-bit platforms such as the Atari ST and Amiga 500 were beginning to catch fire in the imagination and sales stakes - and Government legislation restricting the age of persons entering arcades left the coin-op industry in tatters. No one was interested in what the arcades had to offer. And then Street Fighter II from Capcom appeared Featuring a standard arcade stick with six fire buttons, there were 12 characters and 12 backdrops to boost
the atmosphere. The inclusion of a plot of sorts was a first for a one-on-one beat-em-up. You had to choose a character and through him her become the Warrior Of The World by defeating all of the other characters: four of those being bosses who demanded real skill and cunning to beat.
This couldn't be done by hand eye co-ordination alone. The player had to discover hidden secret moves, invent and implement move combinations and generally try whatever came to hand to take an opponent by surprise. All in all, the biggest, most influential coin-op beat-em up to hit the arcades Since Street Fighter II exploded into the public's consciousness, no other beat-em-up has had quite the same impact. Commendable mentions are Mortal Kombal II and Virtua Fighter.
Virtua Fighter probably represents the future of the beat-em up 3D polygonal characters, multi-rotational zoom views, beautiful backdrops with millions of colours, and a square playing area that fighters could be pushed out of for a ’ring out’ (they lose the bout no matter what their state of health).
The special moves have to be seen to be believed, stomping on prone opponents after indulging in six-foot jumps, bicycle kicks, rapid punches Couple this to a projection screen almost six feet wide with stereo speakers that don't miss a bone stomping crunch or a flesh rending tear and you're talking extreme violence city. O Continued overleaf Steve McGill challenges beat-em-up Shadow Fighter to a bout against Shaq Fu. But which of these new contenders will match the mighty Mortal Kombat 117 dow Fighter As surprises go, beat-em-ups don't come much more surprising than Shadow Fighter.
Programmed and designed by an unknown, unheard of group of Italian ex-conscripts, this beat- em-up rates as one of the best available on any 16-bit platform. It incorporates all of the features that make a computer combat simulation enjoyable.. Sixteen characters that are player- selectable. A control system that's easy to get to grips with. Special moves that make sense and can be pulled off 90 per cent of the time that the combatant demands them. Backdrops that feel as if they're part of the game rather than just a bit of lushness tacked on for the sake of appearances (a la Ellmania). And
finally, move combos that not only look good but also become intuitive and are repeatable by a skillful player.
Add to all of the above a manga- esque, cartoony look to the characters and you're looking at a presentation that's not only going to delight you visually but will appeal to your atavistic primeval urges and keep you playing until you've mastered the special moves and intricacies of every character.
The special moves make more sense, because the actual combinations of joystick action required relate to the movement on screen and so feel natural. Unlike the more mechanical responses needed for Mortal Kombat II.
Shadow Fighter Publisher: Gremlin Graphics 0114 275 3423 A500 600 1200 System requirements: Release date: Out now VERDICT: Good enough and different enough from MKII to make it worth buying.
OVERALL SCORE 89% To add icing to the cake, there's a training mode which, while helping the player to learn special moves and combinations, teels more like taking part in an horrific, hallucinatory cartoon.
Hurrah for Pupazz the demonic vengeful spirit of all shop dummies!
While the training mode is hilarious, the two-player option is the most fun. It doesn't offer anything unusual in terms of structure, such as the extra fighter in IK* or the tag teaming of Body Blows.
But it's passable The players choose a character each and fight a duel. Best out of three bouts wins, and that's it.
Meanwhile, the one-player tournament is pleasing while at the same time being a bit less predictable than normal.
To earn a bout from the Shadow Fighter himself, medium or hard must be selected and a certain number of bouts fought; 10 and 16 respectively. It's a good idea, because it discourages the temptation to play through and win all the bouts at easy level and then never play the game again.
So, to sum up, Shadow Fighter is one of the favourite contenders to take the Amiga Format beat-em up crown. O Shaq Fu is one of those beat- em-ups that could have been good. Very good Unfortunately, because it's been converted from the SNES it suffers from some rather nasty side effects, verging on a hangover.
For a start, it comes on six disks and demands an inordinate amount of swapping every time a new character or bout is opted for. This would be just about acceptable if the game was as good as Mortal Kombat II or Shadow Fighter (lour disks) But it isn't.
The characters are horribly small.
Much smaller than on the SNES, to their detriment. You never feel completely in control even though the controls are easy to get to grips with.
The software even makes allowance for owners of two-button joysticks, which is a good thing.
Inertia-laden contact sound just about perfect. But it's to no avail.
Still on the plus side, there's a cookie plot that just about manages to carry the game. It's sort of like We Ar Kurg Fu with a pointlessly silly map thrown in to cover up the fact that it's just a simple selection screen.
You take on the role of Shaq and you've got to fight your way through all of the fighters until you meet the demonically evil Sett. Kill him and you've completed the game.
Shaq Fu won't set the beat-em-up world on fire, but it's competent and proficient enough and if that's what you're looking for, you've got it.
The whiplash of the morning star sounds fantastic. Check it out.
Shaq Fu Publisher: Ocean 0161 832 6633 Price: £25.99 Versions: A500 600 1200 System requirements: 1Mb Release date: Out now Shaq Fu has been translated from the SNES and has lost definition and colour along the way, but can it give the rest a run for their money?
Shaq Fu The special moves are inventive and novel but you never feel as if the damage being handed out is really making the opposition suffer. And if there's one thing that's important in a beat-em-up, it's the feeling that you're handing out max hurtage. It's a shame because the sound does a good job of backing up and complementing the onscreen action.
Whooshes, aarrghs, and skull- fracturing VERDICT: The translation from the SNES hasn't done the Amiga any favours.
It's a knockout!
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the contenders for the beat-em-up crown of the Amiga world... 891 • . AF Quarter Final ELFMANIA V RISE OF THE ROBOTS.
Aesthetically, it's hard to choose between these two.
Gameplay-wise, Elfmania draws first blood with a believable, novel structure.
Despite a pathetic attempt by Rise Of The Robots to fight back, Elfmania keeps its finger on the fire button while looking elsewhere and reduces the robots to an entanglement of anodised anodyne aluminium.
WINNER: Ehmania.
SHADOW FIGHTER V SHAQ FU Shaq Fu is a tried and tested conversion from the SNES. But the fighters are smaller and the backgrounds less detailed.
Shadow Fighter, however, has large, cartoony fighters and the colourful backgrounds look as if they're part of the action.
It could have been closer but Shadow Fighter is every bit as speedy as Shaq Fu. First and second round knockout.
WINNER: Shadow Fighter MORTAL KOMBAT II V DANGEROUS STREETS It's sorrowful, but the challenge is over in a couple of seconds.
Despite the Dangerous Streets' fighter trying to defend herself with a move that makes her look like a lead grey slab of fridge (or something) Mortal Kombat If s Mileena brushes her off with deft and deadly use of her Sai swords.
Too pathetic to watch.
WINNER: Mortal Kombat II.
ULTIMATE BODY BLOWS V STREET FIGHTER II The meatiest, closest, most vicious of the first rounds.
Street Fighter wins the first bout with its instantly recognisable characters, but UBB has a superior control system that doesn't rely solely on context-sensitive special moves. And UBB has 21 compared to Sfirs 12, which sees UBB float through to the semi-final. Hurrah!
WINNER: Ultimate Body Blows.
Semi-Final ELFMANIA V SHADOW FIGHTER Graphically there's not much in it. But there are more backgrounds in Shadow Fighter, and they feel as if they're part of the action. And Shadow Fighter is meatier. Kicks, punches and special moves, when they connect, make the right sort of max hurtage whump. But the killer blow is the control system. Despite a one-button joystick being all that's required, special and standard moves are in abundance.
WINNER: Shadow Fighter.
ULTIMATE BODY BLOWS V MORTAL KOMBAT 2 UBB outnumbers MKII in choice of characters end threatens to push the chari-topping MKII off its pedestal. But MKII hits back with sheer malice. It's got blood. More blood than you could drink in a lifetime of Satanic worship. It’s got inertia, the characters may be shorter in number but they look real.
Battered and weary, MKII takes the bout, but boy was it close.
WINNER: Mortal Kombat II.
SHADOW FIGHTER V MORTAL KOMBAT II MKII doesn't have as wide a selection of characters as Shadow Fighter. And MKII is grungier, dirtier, more real. Despite the fact that Shadow Fighter only offers a one-button joystick, in a way, this is a blessing. Most beat-em-up fans only own a one-button joystick, so why should they lose out? MKII isn't too enjoyable using only a one- buttoner; some of the special moves are too difficult to pull off.
MKII takes the advantage. It's the most politically incorrect.
While failing to land a knockout blow on the proficient gameplay of Shadow Fighter, MKII was higher up the charts this Christmas, which makes MKII the undisputed winner.
WINNER: Mortal Kombat II.

And Steve Bradley discovers that Dream Web is pretty bonkers too. Or is it just the stuff that dreams are made of?
DreamWeb write a bizarre diary which contains a few clues, and a lot of squiggly writing.
Seven evil people are wandering the world. Or are they? OR ARE THEY? It's a nightmarish world, a murky, ill-lit world where Bladerunner meets EaslEnders. A world of criminal activity, of plimsoll theft, of drug taking, of illicit sex in hotel rooms. Ryan, the deliverer, is the man to assassinate the magnificent seven, and you are he. But can you deliver?
You have a girlfriend. She's called Eden, and last night she let you stay at her flat. From here, your adventure begins, so be prepared to wander about, observing and picking up objects as you wend your merry way to the first cold-blooded killing.
The mouse is the tool through which you manoeuvre your way through this nightmare world and the screen portrays the particular room or area in which you currently reside. Quite why we need to look at an alarming profile of Ryan at all times remains a mystery A mystery, dear reader, which your correspondent can clear up, once and for all, for in fact you are Ryan so therefore you are looking at yourself. AT YOURSELF. AT ALL TIMES. In a, ahem, self-analysis sort of way. Probably. So, that's that solved.
With but a door code and a network password, and the vague feeling that something rather odd is going on, you must travel from flat to flat, from bar to Euil tfcot has bee* chowrteled flow* to the tltowghts owd flftQHs of the h«HQ« race.
A horse walks into a bar: the barman says "Why the long face?". It's a cracker.
Hotel to pool hall, collecting snippets of information, more door codes and weapons for the kill. Travel access areas are located at the edge of groups of map screens which then despatch you, Star Trek-style to the location of your choice. But certain locations are only revealed if you have accessed one of the various computerised network screens which are operated with cartridges - you can trip about for ages not knowing somewhere exists. Which it can't, if you don't know about it.
DreamWeb is a fiddly game. The puzzles are not wildly difficult to solve, but some of the objects are so tiny as to be virtually invisible. A zoom option allows you to search the rooms in detail, but you have to be eagle-eyed.
The scene: I'm at the hotel and I've safely negotiated the room-booking situation. I take my eye my off the screen for a millisecond and miss a vital animation sequence, (which I might have missed even if I had I been glued to the monitor). The hotel receptionist had punched in my details and a keycard, the size of a baby ant had slipped out of the machine on to the desk. I need this card to use the lift, but I failed to see it. Much brain-wracking later (OK, so I asked the friendly chap in sister mag, Amiga Power), the pixel was located and off we go again.
¦***, M il m Outside your friend Louis' house you suffer the indignation of plimsoll theft.
Yet despite these reservations, DreamWeb isn't at all bad. It ain't as sophisticated as it pretends; depth-wise it's way off Monkey Island 2, but then, aren't they all. The real excitement is in the confrontation of your foe, only the problem here is that if you don't reach into your inventory, pull out the weapon and do the deed in the winking of an eye, it's game over. Teeth-gnashing.
Footwear fetish Yet, other puzzles are very easy to solve.
You have a pair of plimsolls, but are zapped by a pink, laser whip-wielding lunatic who steals them and jumps into a waiting getaway car. Seconds later, you are inside your chum's flat and he happens to have a pair your size lying on the floor which you promptly slip on and, hey-ho, you're on your way.
DreamWeb Publisher: Empire 0181-543 7337 Price: £29.99 Versions: A500 600, AGA System requirements: 1Mb, AGA This game contains scenes of violence not suitable for small children'.
Readers, this adventure is adult- orientated, which means there is a rather blurry 'sex scene' and some heinous axe-wielding. It isn't as exciting as it sounds. DreamWeb, for all its bluster about nightmares, madmen and plimsoll theft, is very much a traditional point 'n' click adventure game. It does have atmosphere, but droning music and ill-lit back streets can only be atmospheric for so long.

Ainoj ir. All you need lo peoXxe p»o'esve al OTP' With a
bellowing roar and a few verses of Hakuna Matata, Steve
Jarratt pounces on Virgin's Aladdin-alike and wonders how
something so cute can be such a pain in the... The Lion King
Like Aladdin and the forthcoming Jungle Book, Virgin's The
Lion King is a conversion of the Mega Drive game. But, sadly,
The Lion King has not survived the journey intact. Mega Drive
players were treated to nine levels, whereas we get a paltry
seven (plus two bonus).
Somewhere along the way levels Can’t Wait To Be King and Hakuna Matata have been lost. Which is a shame because they both sound really jolly: Can’t Wait features Simba bouncing off rhinos' heads into the trees and riding an ostrich (pictured above), while in Hakuna Simba traverses a waterfall on logs while dodging some itinerant gorilla’s coconuts.
So why the omission?
Well, it would appear that Virgin simply ran out of time prior to getting the game out ready for the yuietide shopping season. Doh!
The Disney animation studios have at last stepped, Mad Max-like, from the howling desert of their wilderness years. First with The Little Mermaid, then Aladdin and now with the rip- roaring Lion King.
And, sure enough, where 'ere Disney go, Virgin are sure to follow.
Like the Amiga version of Aladdin, The Lion King is a platform game. Like Aladdin, The Lion King features stupendous Disney animation. Like Aladdin, The Lion King boasts sprawling, colourful levels. Unlike Aladdin, The Lion King isn't terribly good fun... Aladdin was a spritely young fellah who could perform leaps and swings with acrobatic aplomb. Little Simba, on the other hand, is a chubby, floppy-pawed lion cub with all the airborne grace of a sodden sponge. The collision detection is also terribly vague, whether you're trying to pounce on a lizard or seek out a platform edge. These factors
conspire to make The Lion King a really frustrating little game. Instead of romping through the levels, reacting instinctively to hazards as they appear, you have to tip-toe along as if every step might be your last, wary of impending doom.
THE LION KING: LOST STAGES Hyenas, vultures and panthers always seem to attack when you're in an enclosed space, making defensive manoeuvres (like 'jumping out of the way') more difficult than they ought to be. Aladdin did at least have a SIMBA'S STUNTS - THE ANIMATED ANTICS OF A LION CUB In a temporary gravity-defying move, Simba launches himself skywards. This is known as ‘jumping’.
GAME REVIEW a rock blow to his furry cranium. And it's not your fault: you just can't interrupt the animation sequence.
I'm not saying the game should be made easier - otherwise you'd finish it in one sitting - but it could have been a damn sight friendlier.
Considering the age of those who might want to join Simba on his travels, the play mechanics don't seem to be particularly well judged.
Flashing scimitar with which to despatch his foe; poor Simba has little more than the ability to land on things, plus a weedy roar which does little but scare porcupines upside- down, enabling him to squash them.
A reasonable mode of attack, admittedly, since a 751b lion cub is more than a match for the soft underbelly of any quilled creature. But if you're a pixel too far either side when making your jump, instead of flattening said up-turned porcupine you end up getting pricked and losing a swatch of energy.
Rocks and hard places Later stages (which I've had the good fortune of sampling) are equally tricky and even more frustrating.
Level four - Simba's Exile - sees the young cub traversing a rocky landscape littered with tricky platform jumps. Like in Aladdin, Simba very often only just spans the gap, and is left clinging to the edge, scrambling for a few seconds before clawing his way to safety. On this level, though, Simba also has to contend with rocks which plummet down the screen.
But not at random, oh no. They fall wherever Simba happens to be - and if he's in mid-platform-edge- scramble, then he inevitably receives Buy it, if you must, but don't expect too much in the way of Hakuna Matata.

.ONLY £4-99 ANALOG JOYSTICKS liiiMfMTiinsniiii JOYSTICKS 36 HOPE ST, HANLEY. STOKE ON TRENT ST1 5BS Kilmarnock supporter Steve McGill investigates why, if the game of cricket had never been invented, we would all be frustrated footballers.
Battle For The Ashes Make sure your bedroom door’s open when you waggle the joystick harder for an extra run.
1 Si ** Whipping oil his bails was easier than slicing through butler with a hot knile.
Pace, aggression, stamina, dexterity, sharpness and judgement are all required of anyone wanting to play that most dangerous and exciting of white trouser-clad games - cricket.
Since the inception of Graham Gooch Cricket into the Amiga market, the cricket simulation sector was wrapped up. Nothing else could compete against it in terms of feel, play mechanics, statistical accuracy and fun.
You could play limited over matches, Test matches, against a friend, against the computer or, for stat heads, you could even have the computer play against itself.
The players that made up each team were up to date with their performances in the real world too. Batting averages, bowling averages and fielding averages were all taken care of and it meant that, rather than feel that you were playing an arbitrary computer game, you felt involved with current cricketing events.
Further improving on most of the cricket sims that had gone before it, Graham Gooch Cricket offered a first Battle For The Ashes Publisher: Audiogenic 0181-424 2244 Price: E9.99 Versions: A500 A600 A1200 System requirements: 1Mb Release date: Out now person perspective view of the wicket - the part of the field where most of the action takes place, apparently.
Fielders could be positioned according to the preferences and idiosyncrasies of the type of bowlers used and the ability of the batsman at defending the wicket. These positions could be swapped around if fine tuning was required. All in all it contributed to the feeling that Graham Gooch Cricket was a sim rather than just a game. You could edit all the names of the players too.
And, just like real cricket, the batsman's job came down to positioning, reactions, timing and instinct. And just in case you were wondering, eight different types of shot could be played depending on the type of ball being fired in by the bowler.
The embarrassing part of all this of course was the inclusion of the wiggle waggle factor, both for increasing the amount of spin or pace of the bowler and the speed that the fielders ran between the wickets. Not only did it decrease the lifespan of your joystick drastically, it also lead to an undeserved reputation if people weren't aware of what you were doing.
In the googlies Anyway, that was Graham Gooch Cricket which we awarded 78% in AF47.
Not Battle For The Ashes. So why have we spent the whole of this review referring to it?
Well, Battle For The Ashes is Graham Gooch Cricket with its wings clipped - because in Battle you can only play a five-day Test match between England and Australia and you can’t edit the teams.
But on the plus side, Battle For The Ashes will only set you back a tenner and it can be upgraded with a 94 95 data disk.
So, there's no longer any excuse not to involve yourself in the heady world of willow and leather spanking.

1Mb (A500) 2Mb (A1200) Release date: , Out now Way back in the
Summer of '94, at the height of World Cup fever, Kick Otf 3
was released to a somewhat mixed reception. Despite the
plethora of other football games hitting the shelves at that
time, the strength of the Kick Off name ensured that it would
be a high profile release. Anco, obviously deciding that
Sensible Software had the top-down view perspective game
firmly sewn up, opted for a sideways-viewed pitch and the
results were, while aesthetically pleasing, rather patchy.
Kick Off 3 returns, this time wearing the cap of European Challenge, the package including five countries' premier sides and a miscellaneous VERDICT: A competent, if flawed game.
Looks great, but lacks playability.
Bunch from a variety of others. Oh, and 24 international teams, too, as well as league and pre-set cup competitions.
Again, Anco in their wisdom are releasing a game when the competition is at its strongest - this time, nicely coinciding with Sensible World Of Soccer's airing.
So, what's new? Well, the overriding feeling is that of a game which has undergone minor tweaking and not much else. The players now sport a delightful ring around them when in possession of the ball, they appear to move with more fluidity than their predecessors, yet their behaviour remains as erratic as ever.
A scene: ball rolls off toward corner flag with not a player in sight.
Desperately, you keep your thumb on the pad stick, in the vain hope that one of your men will scurry after the ball, and while this only takes seconds, it seems an age. In general, the game lacks polish - who is this team that plays in England called City? And why can't they get the colour of the kits right?
Team work Interestingly, one of the options is the Team Talk. During the game, you can pause the action and offer the lads advice. One suggestion is that they 'sit on it', while others include, 'get stuck in' and, 'relax'. Quite how their behaviour is affected remains unclear. Must be me, I guess. Alan Hudson sat on the ball on his England debut against the Germans
- my lads were not so controversial.

Graphically, it's a pretty affair. The sprites are huge and well-animated - one major plus point is that the players wear Charlie George-esque sideburns with aplomb, and this is surely the only footer game where every participant bar the goalies sport sweatbands.
But Kick Off 3 finds itself on a crowded shelf - the competition has wised-up since Kick Off 2 ruled the Amiga and although this is by no means a bad game, it wavers in the face of Sensible, Empire Soccer and its direct rival, FIFA International Soccer.

silly little creatures to safety while simple, was completely revolutionary and could only have turned up on a home computer such as the Amiga.
Despite thousands and thousands of converts, myself included, some of the criticisms aimed at the game were pretty relevant and made sense in the way that a fluffed note in an orchestra makes sense - you tend to ignore them because you are too busy listening to and enjoying the harmony of the rest of the symphony.
The All New World Of Lemmings In Lemmings 2there were 12 tribes. Here there are only three.
It's a whole new world, and it's full of lemmings. Steve McGill gets to grips with the little fellas but comes second in the battle of wits, skill and timing... But now seasoned gamer and novice alike are more versed in the art of game design. Especially Amiga gamers, because over the past six years or so, we've almost had a monopoly share of the very best games on the market.
So that's why, if you're a die hard fanatic of Lemmings, you might as well ignore everything that's about to follow.
It is heresy, and for that crime the writer freely admits that he should be burned at the stake and his ashes cast to the four winds.
For, despite the overall improvement in game mechanics and the inclusion of genuinely nice, though not novel, ideas, The All New World Of Lemmings is incredibly, incredibly, incredibly irritating. It can be installed to GAME REVIEW FEBRUARY 199S LEMMINGS ARE NOTHING WITHOUT CONTROL accessible after your lemming has picked them up. Good idea.
Is the ability to up by using force a change the walker of direction. Command Very handy. (see left).
But that still doesn't manage to stop the occasional lemming or two from craftily hiding behind a selected lemming. And, yep, you guessed it, you usually only find out that the stalking horses are there when you need them to be there least. Aaaaargghh!
So, you might have concluded that I, Stephen Nomiddlename McGill didn't like this game very much. And you'd be right. I hated it. But in terms of objectivity and professional reviewership, it has be admitted that it isn't a terrible game.
In fact, many Lemmings converts are going to love the various changes such as the inclusion of animals, the extra tools, and the larger command boxes. Good luck to them.
Hard drive, but even the installation routine is frustrating. So much so that I didn't bother with it and played the game from floppy instead.
Why the game should be irritating isn’t immediately obvious. This time round though, unlike Lemmings 2 - Tribes which had 12 different types of lemmings, here there are only three varieties. So that's slightly irritating.
More are promised at a later date, but in a calculated move that's going to cost you more money. Irritating.
World domination Each type of lemming - Egyptian, Classic and Shadow - has 30 levels respectively. As is to be expected, they start easy, in a nice introductory kind of way and get progressively more difficult with frightening rapidity.
By the time the increasing difficulty starts to bite, some of the old conceptions of the original should hopefully have died off. No more waiting for lemmings to reach an obstacle before they turn back. You just command them to do so.
Now, there are five basic commands to be issued to each lemming rather than different types of lemming (check the boxout to find out more). Two of these commands, the pick up and drop, make up for the loss of the different types of lemmings.
Presumably, this feature has been implemented so that the player has more to aim at on screen so that the game can still be played accurately with Lemmings 3 Publisher: Psygnosis 051 709 5755 Price: £29.99 Versions: A500 600 1200 System requirements: AGA, 1Mb machines Release date: Out now a mouse with a resolution lower than 180dpi and dirty rollers.
In theory, it's welcome. In practice, it isn’t such a good idea. At times, you have to use the right mouse button to switch between different lemmings that have picked up different tools. If timing is crucial, this leads to uncalled for confusion, and ultimately, irritation.
Fortunately, it doesn't make the game unplayable - just bloody, bloody annoying. 3ust as annoying in fact as one of the old bugbears of the other two Lemmings games - selection of one particular lemming from a whole bunch of other little fellas.
Admittedly. Psygnosis have met the problem half way by making the user- selectable lemmings highlighted in red.
Lemming up are stored, tools over the jumps over the Can become side of nearest confusing crevices and obstacle. When there are follow them too many, later on.
This command now be freed it's issued, the that you pick lets you drop the same function as before.
VERDICT: Nice touches to please fans of the original, but more of the same, really.

It returns, this time wearing the CD32 cap and priced some £10 more than its floppy pal. For
the extra money, you receive, on the same CD, mind, the original Alien Breed 2 and a seven minute 3D intro sequence which, if you can suspend belief for a brief moment, resembles the cast from Emmerdale remaking Star Wars.
If that sounds somewhat derisive, apologies, for it's most entertaining fare, in an odd sort of way. Former AF editor Marcus Dyson plays a starring role as the chap who decides whether the other chaps in the spaceships can shoot things. But, of course, you do not buy a computer game for its intro sequence, unless you bought Microcosm.
So, the game. It's a viewed-from- above shoot-em-up. You are in possession of a gun, and you're invited to wander corridors and shoot the inhabitants. And with over 50 levels, there is many a corridor to walk.
New features include dark levels where you feel your way by torchlight and a retreat facility allowing you to walk backwards and still shoot (woooh) the fiends. Tower Assault is extremely difficult, particularly in one-player mode
- aliens proliferate blasting you from all angles, and you kind
of get the feeling that it's unfair.
Play with a friend and the difficulty level is rather less painful. Missions must be completed on every level - computer terminals contain the mission info, while maps offer limited assistance for navigation around the many rooms. But you often find yourself hopelessly lost, stumbling around searching for the exit from the level. If you're a fan of the Breed series, then chances are, you will enjoy Tower Assault. Mere mortals though, may find it frustrating. The original Alien Breed 2 is excellent, but a bit tough to begin with, too.
Continued overleaf ¦ MARVIN'S MARVELLOUS ADVENTURE 21st Century B 01235 851852 B £29.99 There it a problem here. Marvin, the star of the show, is quite possibly the least interesting character to appear in a platform game. He’s a small, blond chap who apparently delivers pizza. But enough of the plot You can jump on things, collect other things and run along ledges. The scrolling is smooth, the backgrounds colourful but it is linear, tedious and adds absolutely nothing to the genre.
Competently dull, and rather easy.
Marvin can kick things, occasionally shoot things and ride on the hack of glum caterpillars Super Stardust it one of Ihe most spectacular- looking CD12 garnet to date, and it has the playability to match. But then, it would be tome feat to make a mess of an Asteroids clone.
«- SUPER STARDUST Team 17 B 01924 201846 B £29.99 So shouteth the Super Stardust box.
"Fear is for the weak Mercy is for Ihe foolish. Power, strength and victory are the only words which can mean anything to you... Have you got what it takes?" Erm, can I go to the toilet, please?
You may be too young. You may be too old. But if you're the right age, then you will have played Asteroids in sports centres, or perhaps arcades at some point in the early Eighties. Super Stardust is Asteroids, albeit an extremely posh version but, of course, if you've played Asteroids then you will know that this is no bad thing.
Gameplay extraordinaire, if you will. You have a ship. The ship is placed in the centre of the screen and a variety of unfriendly objects head towards you.
You can shoot the unfriendly objects, and if you wish, move your ship to other areas of the screen, thus avoiding the attentions of the unfriendly objects. It’s a simple idea, but by jove it’s fun.
So, Super Stardust, are you worth purchasing, or should we just get a copy of the PD version of Asteroids: a version which remains faithful to the original arcade affair? Of course, computer games cannot speak for themselves, apart from Valhalla which might suggest that, "it doesn't fit", or "it doesn't work".
But Super Stardust has much to offer. For starlers, it looks quite fabulous. The ray-traced alien craft are quite possibly the finest you'll ever see on the CD52 while the end-of-level tunnel sequences perfectly complement the main attraction. Yes, complete a few screen's worth of flying boulders and you get to shoot through a splendid tunnel, 'a toute vitesse' as they say abroad somewhere. And in these end- of-level delights are an unfeasible amount of objects to avoid and power- ups to collect. The whole tunnel shebang happens rather quickly so one's wits must be present.
Yes, 30 knicker for an Asteroids clone is a bit pricey, but this is one of the best games available for the CD32.
And you get an intro sequence involving spaceships on this version too. O 'P'teMuen ’TtCail &tden Please Send Cheques PO’s (made out to Premier Mail Order) or Access Visa (Switch + Issue No) & Expiry Date to: Dept: AF02 9-10 THE CAPRICORN CENTRE. CRANES FARM ROAD. BASILDON, ESSEX Ssi4 3JJ.

£14.95......? Amiga Gamers Guide @£14.95.. Stephen Bradley looks at the latest trio of budget games to be released. But are they just three of a kind or could they be six of the best?
Spend money on better mining equipment (to get more spice) and weapons, then take over the world.
If it weren't known as Dune II then strategy would be the name of the game. Despite the concise mission objectives (such as mine X amount, kill Terry and Dune), the means of achievement can be complex indeed.
As strategy action games go, Dune II - Battle For Arrakis is atmospheric, addictive and playable.
What more could one want?
Ift ft ft ?
Ft 3 ft ft HI Ik REALMS Hit Squad 0161-832 6633 ¦ £12.99 ¦ AF3269% Now some three years old, Realms returns on a budget outing. The box suggests that there are, " 125,000 square miles of fractally-generated landscape". Well I'll go to the foot of the stairs.
Realms is a strategy game which looks a bit like a god game. Trying to rule the world can be very trying, particularly when there isn’t a great deal of action to be had and the graphics are a little shabby.
But try you must, in this isometric-viewed 3D affair.
Financial allocation plays an important role as you attempt to keep the people fed while expanding your city and build up the arsenal.
Realms isn't bad, it's just that Populous 2 and Powermonger are better.
DESERT STRIKE Hit Squad 0161-832 6633 ¦ £12.99 UAF46 87% The AH-64 is your craft of war; a developed tool; a coiled spring; a helicopter with guns and other things.
Desert Strike preceded big brother Jungle Strike and impressive it remains.
Your task - to negotiate your way through four huge missions before tackling the fearful General Kilbaba.
Despite unnecessary Gulf War overtones, Desert Strike is one of the best Amiga shoot- em-ups with-flight- sim-elements-in-it around. Tasks include destroying radar installations, airfields and anti-aircraft missiles and tactics play no small part.
A methodical, clinical approach to the game works best. And you have to rescue your own chaps who wander across the desolate plains - they shout; "over here", just to help you out. Hover above them and into the chopper they trot, just like in real life. Look at the map to check your position, slap the space bar to change your weapon selection then fly around and shoot things showing no mercy.
The 3D isometric view works mighty fine and the graphics and DUNE II - BATTLE FOR ARRAKIS Hit Squad 0161-832 6633 ¦ £12.99 ¦ AF50 90% Tribes battle for the fine spice Melange in lands far away. Those that can produce the most spice will control the planet sound add to what is a most polished number. Despite the relatively short number of missions, the terrain differs and the tasks vary. A worthy addition to your software collection, indeed.
Dune. But not Terry. Dune II - Battle For Arrakis is not an easy game to label - it has elements of the god genre while there is enough artillery to sink a large ship. A god game with guns. And spice. That's it. The idea - mine spice, get money for spice, it wii swum tie smi... CWTIIIS TIE WNIISI.
Behold Ihe planet Arrakis, known as Dune • land ol sand and home of Ihe spice 'Melange'. Ihe spice controls Ihe empire • whoever controls Dune controls Ihe spice. Ihe Emperor has proposed a challenge • The House that produces Ihe most spice will control Dune, there are no lerrilories...and no rules ol engagement.'
Vast armies have arrived. Now three Houses light lor control ol Dune. Only one House will prevail. Your Battle lor Arrakis begins NOW "Gorgeous graphics, incredible music & sound effects... frantic and exciting.'

Format readers have sent us sackloads of gaming hints and
tips. Steve Bradley sorts through the latest batch and adds a
few of his own.
1. Start off with Halifax Town - they have the best strikers, so
you should score more goals.
2. It's best to always play your best striker in the number nine
shirt. It gives you the MSO or Maximum Scoring Opportunity.
3. Ensure defenders are on Long Shooting - they never score
anyway.
4. Put your midfielders to Long Shooting, too.
5. Strikers are best on Medium Shooting, except the chap in the

Gremlin (0114 275 3423) Trouble at Town? All is not United?
Have the Rovers disappeared? Not feeling Athletic? Does Wednesday feel like a Monday morning? Never fear. Help is at hand.
0) Q ~ z I I 3 ' El 2 | I 2 II ZEEWOLF Jon Smith of Radstock,
Somerset imparts some words of wisdom on our fabulous Zeewolf
Coverdisk (AF66). When the game is loaded, choose the joystick
as preferred control method but keep your mouse plugged in.
If you ever need a quick burst of speed, bash the mouse button and off you go.
And there's more. As luck would have it, there is a tank placed on one of the islands.
Hover over the little feller and press the H key. You can now pick up the tank and drop it in one of the danger zones and it will blast the enemy while you take the money and run.
And Binary Asylum supremo. Bob Wade, suggests that if you type FRAMPAGE, you can then fly the Kestrel - that's the little aeroplane. Oh, and if you're using mouse control, here's a handy hint for landing. Before touch down, switch to joypad control - this allows you to fly earthward at any angle, yef land smoothly.
Ground rating = 70% League seat price = £14 League terrace price = £8 Cup seat = £21 Cup terrace = £12 Overdraft loan = £5,000,000 E500,000 Premiership Ground safety = 4 stars Ground facility = Excellent Gym = Average Ground rating = 80% League seat price = £16 Cup seat = £24 Overdraft loan = £8,000,000 E750,000 Division Three Ground safety = 2 stars Ground facility = Average Gym = Basic Ground rating = 50% League seat price = £8 League terrace price = £5 Cup seat = £12 Cup terrace = £8 Overdraft loan = £750,000 £100,000 Division Two Ground safety = 3 stars Ground facility = Good Gym = Basic

Apart from Gordon Strachan.
15. Use the Player Loan facility as often as possible. You can
abuse on- loan players till the cows come, erm, off the
field. Also, reserve players in higher divisions may be
better than your star players.
16. The better the gym is, the better the coaches perform.
17. The following list (split into divisions) is what you should
aim for to allow you to maximise your revenue and support,
while minimising fines and penalties.
Conference Ground safety = 2 stars Ground facility = Basic Gym = None Ground rating = 40% League seat price = £5 League terrace price = £3 Cup seat = £8 Cup terrace = £5 Overdraft loan = £250,000 £50,000 400040 - Gives players a higher fitness rate and better moral. They will also be two-footed (you know what we mean), so the folk you couldn't sell before are a much more attractive proposition. And there's more. The directors' debt is cleared so you can re-apply and the 'votes of confidence' are wiped. It also helps with insurance. Good number, eh?

WIT PREMIUM - FREEZERS Welcome to the new-style PD section of AF. We hope that we're able to engage your interest with the new retina-massaging bite-sized chunky box design. Not to mention the superfluously overinflated wordsmithing... (Freestyle PD) From the start. Wit Premium establishes itself as something al least a bit different, verging on entertaining.
The music is a little pompous, but in the way that Wagner's Hide Of The Valkyrie could be considered pompous.
It declares the demo open and then proceeds to take you on an accelerated journey through demo land. The music Is fast, high-energy stuff that doesn't manage to grate through constant repetition. It changes enough to be listenable to all the way through.
What's more, when the first major polygonal rift journey through an imaginary set of buildings starts, the music complements the visuals in an intense burst of manic syncbronicity.
Very effective, if not very impressive.
Admittedly, Wit I'remium doesn't have a great deal of engaging narrative to hold it together in the way that, say Mina Omislan does. But they're completely different kinds of demos and deserve to be judged differently.
It's the energy of Wit 1‘remium's music and visuals that carry it so that it is entertaining from start to end - no swirly vector patterns or starfields or other effects that have been seen since the dawn of creation.
Even more engagingly, the credits and greetings are all stuck on at the end. So it doesn't feel as if the designers and coders are getting in your face.
Medium to high recommendation for this one.
OPERATION FIRESTORM (FI Ijcenceware) Like many Amiga owners, I harbour a secret obsession for classic H-bit games.
So much so, in fact, that my home still plays host to some of the classic H-bit micros the (164, Spectrum, Oriel and even an Atari 800. My aged Spectrum still sees quite a bit of service thanks to one game - Orem llereL Originally released by Ocean, Green Beret is one of those 8-bit games that - although technically very simple - has bucketloads of gameplay.
And PD programmer P Ruston has , attempted to relive the glory days of Green Beret with the launch of his brand new Licertceware release. Operation Firestorm. Available for just £3.99 from FI Licenceware, Operation Firestorm features some of the best graphics and sound yet to be found in a PD game.
Like Green Beret, the idea is to glide a lone Rambo-like soldier through five massive horizontally-scrolling levels, blasting any enemy soldiers that are unfortunate enough to get in your way.
Armed with just a simple single-shot rifle at the start of the game, our hero can pick up all manner of power ups, such as flame throwers and missile launchers. You'll certainly need these power ups too as the game is very, very tough. In all. Operation Firestorm is £4 well spent.
SUPERVIEW (KEW-U) It's very rare to find a picture viewing utility that offers anything particularly new - AGA. 24-bit support and fancy fades and wipes have been done to death - so you can imagine my surprise when SuperView drop|x-d on to my desk entombed in a jiffy- bag from KF.W-II Public Domain.

SuperView has a wide range of additional loaders to handle such image formats as GIF, PCX, JPEG, BMP, TIFF and TARGA. What's more, new loaders can quite easily be added at a later date making SuperView a truly modular program.
SuperView can do a lot more than just display pictures, however. Once you’ve loaded an image into the program, you can then save it to disk in any one of the supported loader formats. You could, for example, load an image in PCX format and then save it off as a JPEG file.
Amiga Formal subscribers will be pleased to learn that SuperView is on this month's Subscribers' Superdisk.
LOTTERY WINNER (Onl ine PD) If you're one of the millions of Britains that have gone National Lottery bonkers then you simply have to get your hands on a copy of Online PD's Lottery Winner (alternatively, AF subscribers will find it on this month’s Subscribers' Superdisk).
Since the country went lottery mad back in mid November, we've received loads of utilities designed to generate numbers suitable for a National I-ottery game card. Big deal - how hard can it be to write a utility that generates seven random numbers?
GRAPEVINE Issue 20 (17 Bit Software) If Grapevine is your first foray into the underworld of disk magazines, then prepare to have your eyes opened with all the subtlety of a rusty crowbar opening a box of spent matches.
Grapevine comes on two disks and is packed with very useful and illuminating information, contacts, and insights into the elitist arrogant but intelligent with it sub-culture of the demo, coding and modem scene.
Although it's easy enough to navigate through the various pages, it is very text-heavy which will be a trifle tiresome for all but the most enthusiastic lovers of the Amiga.
Despite the word blindness that set in after browsing through the magazine for an hour and a bit.
Grapevine should be checked out by anyone with more than a casual interest in the Amiga. Recommended.
I jittery Winner, on the other hand, is an entirely different ball (lottery?)
Game. OK, so it too can generate numbers for your lottery cards but - unlike its lesser rivals - I jittery Winner also analyses winning numbers from the past to predict the most likely combinations. Simply feed it each week's lottery numbers and I jittery Winner does the rest.
I jittery Winner also lets you view the frequency of numbers over a set period of time so you can see at a glance what numbers keep cropping up time and time again. OK, so you could quite easily do this yourself with a bit of graph paper, but hey - using your Amiga is a lot more fun.
F1GP-ED (All good PD libraries) If you're a fan of Microprose's Formula One (Wand I Six then you'll love Oliver Roberts’ new editor utility. Available from all good Public Domain libraries (the author sent us our copy direct), version 2.3 of FICP-FJ) is all you need to customise your copy of Microprose's brilliant 3D racing game.
Running from a friendly Workbench-based front end, FICP-FI) lets you design the look and performance of racing cars and customise pit crews and helmets, plus you can alter how the computer- controlled cars drive and respond.
Also included is a sample data file which converts your copy of FI (Wand Prixso that it plays like the real-life 1994 season.
Using Oliver's data file, you can compete against the likes of Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher - who knows, perhaps you could rewrite history so that our Damon wins the world championship!
Oliver has put a great deal of work into ensuring that the modified game is as close to the real thing as possible. As a result, the computer-controlled cars achieve much faster lap times so you'd better be blessed with the driving skills of Nigel Mansell if you want to be in with a chance of winning Oliver’s modified FI (Wand Isix.
WORKBENCH 2 3 SYSTEM UTILITIES (KEW-U) Barely a month goes by without yet another compilation of Workbench 2.0 and 3 utilities landing on my desk. This latest compilation contains five of the best utilities released over the past couple of months. Here's a quick run down of what's on offer.
NewAlert2 - This utility (which AF' subscribers will find on their free Subscribers' .Superdisk) is designed to demystify those dreaded Guru messages that your Amiga displays when something goes wrong. Simply slick it into your WBStartUp and whenever a Guru number is displayed, NewAlert2 tells you exactly what went wrong.
Simple but very useful.
SIP 2.18 - SIP is a quick and very easy lo use system monitor utility similar in design to the infamous ARTM.

SnoopDOS 3.0 - The star of last month's Amiga Format Subscribers’ Superdisk, SnoopDOS 3.0 is the most powerful DOS monitor available. It provides a simple way of monitoring what files and resources a program expects to find when it is loading.
But SnoopDOS really comes into its own when you are installing software on to a hard disk because you can see al a DEADLOCK Issue 9 (Ground Zero Software) While Grapevine magazine is simply loaded with information that's interesting, if not fascinating, the majority of it is a little dry and takes itself more seriously than it should. Deadlock, on the other hand, could be called Deadpan due to its tongue-in-cheek sense of humour and pacy narrative.
Deadlock is rude, crude, crass, sexist, puerile, disgusting, unclean and infantile. But despite all that I love it. It’s the first time for simply ages that I have been close to tears with laughter.
Oh, and as a last warning, if you are under 18, don't buy this and show Syslnfo - No compilation is complete without Nic Wilson's Syslnfo, a utility that lets you examine the innards of your Amiga. Syslnfo displays all manner of useful specification-type details, such as how much memory you possess, which Operating System version you have, the type of graphics chips and processor and so on.
SystemGuide - This is a database in AmigaCuideformat of the Amiga DEADLOCK: Slow in parts but the rest grabs your interest and hangs on.
It to your mum. Amiga Format wouldn't like parents to think that we were peddling corruption.
So hey, be careful out there and remember to keep shtoom.

TOP HAT WILLY (Ground Zero Software) The 8-bit home micros have a lot to answer for if this new game from Ground Zero Software is anything to go by - which, incidentally. Amiga Format subscribers will find on this month's Subscribers' Superdisk. Top Hat Willy draws its inspiration from the classic 8- bit platformer. Jet Set Willy.
Jet Set Willy may be rather long in the tooth these days but veteran computer owners are sure to love the similarities, like Software Projects' platform classic. Top Hat Willy is filled with weird and wonderful objects such as scissors, razor blades and knives, all of w hich roam the haunted castle that Willy must explore.
Dotted around the castle are a series of shimmering bells that Willy must collect in order to complete the game. Using a combination of baddy- dodging and platform jumping skills, Willy must avoid the baddies while collecting all the bells.
Nostalgia fans will delight in Top Hal Willy.

Name: Company: Position: Address: Postcode: Photogenks Almathera's great new graphics software gets the full scrutiny of the ever image conscious Mick Veitch.
The obvious design philosophy behind Photogenic* is a simple one - lake ihe besl of the image processing programs on other platforms (preferably ones which also begin with ihe word photo) and reinvent the best bits in a super Amiga-friendly piece of software. For the most part, this h;ts been very successful indeed. If you were frustrated with ADPro's lack of effects on user-defined areas or with mage 'X*s disappointing display, then this is the pac kage you actually meant to buy.
Before we get into the details, now might be the best time to talk about system requirements. AGA is not a necessity, but it is highly recommended. If you have an older machine, you will only be able to preview your work in greyscale mode, which is a bit of a limitation. Realistically, the rest of the restrictions mean you will have AGA anyway, because you also need WB3.0 and 2Mb of Chip RAM.
The most notable ihing about these restrictions is how easy they are to comply with - a basic A1200 fits the bill. You don't need huge amounts of memory as you do with AI)Pro. This is mostly due to the running buffering systems involved.
I he program is object-orientated. You ran have multiple images loaded at once (which is necessary for the Alpha and Rub Through modes anyway) and each image has its own window. These windows can be dynAMIGAlly resized. This is all the more THE INTERFACE IN ACTION Budding artists can experiment with a variety of madia without ever getting their hands dirty This is my interpretation of an apple by the way.
& FIND YOUR WAY AROUND THE TOOLBAR Freehand Mode: Standard freehand drawing, as seen the world over.
Continuous Freehand: An incredibly fast freehand drawing tool.
Polygon Tools: Draw squares, elipses and other polygons, filled or not.
Filled Area: The area that you draw in freehand is automatically filled.
Magnify: Zooms in on the window. There is no separate window for the zoom, the current window contains the resized image.
Zoom Out: Returns the image to its initial view size with the correct aspect ratio.
Cut Brush: Creates a new image from the defined Fill: You can fill with defined tolerance and use any paint mode you like (including Clone for some weird effects).
Smear Just like rubbing your finger over the image when it's still wret.
Pipette: Selects the current colour from anywhere in the Photogenics image.
Mode: Selects the painting mode. Choose from a huge cast of thousands.
Mode Parameters: For use with the modes that have adjustable features.
Brush: Choose your weapon, there are 13 brushes in the release version, with the promise of more to come.
Brush Preferences: Adjusts the transparency, pressure and sire of the brush.
Fill Paint Layer: Fills the current paint layer.
Amazing considering how fast it happens - resizing an average window takes about four seconds on a HAMS display. Speed characterises most of Photogrntis operations, from freehand drawing modes to JPEG saves. The flexible requester system means you can have many windows open at once, including the requesters for brush type, paint mode, palette, loaders and savers.
So finally we get to paint something.
The first tiling to do is to choose a brush type. Rather like Opalpaml, the brushes can emulate different types of media, from ballpoints to watercolour, and most conventional drawing implements are there. Because of the modular idea behind die brushes newer (and probably more bizarre) ones should be available soon.
After you have chosen your weapon, you should decide how to use it. .All the brushes can be fine tuned to your requirements by indicating their size, pressure and transparency ratings. Then you can draw what you like, widi either the freehand tool or one of the polygon tools.
Anything you paint isn't permanent until you choose Fix. This means that you can undo anything you’ve painted by clearing it all. Or painting with the right mouse button. So you can paint in one effect, say Negative, and then decide that you’d rather the effect was Brightness - all you have to do Ls select the new mode from die lisL It is also possible to adjust brush characteristics - basically you can change anything until you fix it. This gives an PHOTOGENICS Fix: Makes current paint layer permanent. You can undo if the undo feature is enabled.
Amazing degree of flexibility because you can paint the effect and then adjust it to suit your needs at the end.
Photogmia can take a while to gel the hang of, particularly if you are used to one pixel on the screen representing one pixel of your image. Alpha channels are used in quite an unusual way in that they are actually images themselves. To use any image as an alpha channel, it is dragged to the Alpha box in the Images toolbar. Then all painting modes, including composition.
DISTRIBUT Almathera 0181 687 0040 PRICE £54.95 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS WB3.0, 2Mb RAM Undo Painting: Gears all painting since the last fix.
Are determined by this channel. If you can't create your own superb alpha channels, take advantage of one of the custom loaders which generate effects for you, such as ripples, streaks and patterns.
The scope for updating and adding to the program at a later date make it an almost timeless piece of software. The only notable omission is Allexx support, which means ADPro will probably remain the favourite for batch processing - at least until the next version of Photogmics... The only thing really missing is Arexx, and a couple of effects such as spherize and twirl.
VALUE ••••• Affordable and excellent - this must get the best value Amiga Format score in recorded history.
MODULAR CONSTRUCTION All the loaders, savers, brushes and paint modes exist as modules, rather like ADPro. This is a very good idea because it means that new features can be added at a later date. If someone suddenly launches a new graphic format or you desperately need one that isn’t covered in the release version it can be added without having to update the whole program.
Even better than that Almathera are making the format of the modules publicly available. Unlike ASOG, who charged people to develop stuff for ADPro. You can now do it yourself.
Even if you are not a top coder, the PD libraries are sure to be awash with PD loaders and paint modes before long.
SPEED •••• Superbly fast on the redraws, and many of the processing effects. The Fill Mode is a bit slow.
MANUAL • • • • • An impressive ring-bound tome complete with examples, tutorials and reference sections.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • 1 After about half an hour, using this software is second nature. If you can use Workbench, you're an artist.

Staff initials Video AF video expert Steve McGill checks out the Videopilot editor, which has taken a drop in price since being picked up by Ambervane. But is it better value than before?
Every computer-based video editing suite lets the editor execute a pre-prepared edit list of video clips or FX. Much like a word processor, this list can be cut, pasted and generally swapped around to your heart’s desire. This gives the editor incredible flexibility.
Most of the price of an Amiga-based edit controller depends on the machine protocols it can handle, the number of machines it can control and the extraneous features it's capable of, such as reading and writing time code and controlling external video equipment such as video or sound mixers.
The Videopilot from V3i costs just pennies under £1.000, and at first, the price might make you balk. But before you make your mind up, it’s worth considering what you get for your money and comparing it to similar units.
The editor can control up to three source video machines, one recorder and a remote accessory. The Videopilot also reads all of the current consumer time codes on the market and reads and writes Longitudinal Time Code on to blank and pre-recorded tapes.
Il comes housed in a snappy-looking, functional, beige box which is a mite taller and a smidgen shorter I ban an A1200. It sports 10 rubber function buttons, five large transport mechanism keys, a huge jog shuttle dial, and an Enter key. Support is provided for the four main consumer control protocols: Infra-Red, Panasonic 5 pin, Sony's Lane or Control-L and JVC's
3. 5mm socket.
In other words, the Videopilot integrates into just about any video set-up. Be it as simple as a camcorder and video recorder or as complex as three video sources, a video recorder, a video mixer and a genlock. The software is simple to use and easy to set up. It can be run from floppy or hard drive and it multitasks. Little or no conflict is experienced when oilier programs are running and it works with any Amiga with 1Mb of RAM. Connection is made via the serial port and the software doesn't function without this connection.
EbiT One of the main criticisms of the Videopilot is the software. In an attempt to simplify its use, certain control functions have been disabled. So, if you want to cue up one of your source decks to a particular spot on a tape for an edit-in point, you've got to use the transport keys on the Videopilot console itself.
Furthermore, you can't even use the transport mechanisms on the source deck directly. Only the Videopilot console controls can be used and although this may make it easier for the novice to use, for anyone who knows their way around desktop video, it's an inconvenience and feels like a restraint on the true potential of the machine.
And while we're talking about restraints, unlike other computer edit decision lists. Cue In and Out points can't be entered directly into the list via the Amiga's keyboard. Instead, you have to highlight the cue point on the list and adjust the value using either the keyboard plus and minus keys or a software adjuster.
This slows evervthing down considerably, especially if you've already created an EDL (Edit Decision List) using the burnt in time code option (check out the Burnt In Time Code box to the right) Continued overleaf • TOTRL TIME I i mn NU M595B * A W HMNSEC B tn-o KSCRIPTIflh toiffa Farnat Edit Bloc}: UMC| 5H0T | EFFECT [ Plfflf [ CUT IH j CHHHII | TIME ¦¦ mm mm , ¦¦ mm

B u3 Reaction Hs CONTROL PLRVER USING UlOeOPILDT CONSOLE KEV5
PRESS ENTER TO MRP.K SHOT In order to create an executable EDL,
all shots have to be logged in using the Enter key on the
Videopilot console. While limited manual adjustment is
possible, it would have been much better if figures could be
typed in directly from the Amiga.
BURNT IN TIME CODE One of the incredibly powerful features of the Videopilot when combined with a genlock is the ability to bum in a visible time code on to video footage. At the same time LTC can be written on to the linear sound track.
Burning in and writing time codes on to second generation tapes opens the floodgates for creative experimentation and offers power to the adventurous editor previously undreamt of with consumer equipment.
It means that figures shown on-screen could be entered directly into the Edit Decision List (EDL), played around with, tweaked and experimented with until a satisfying playing order and duration has been reached. Unfortunately, figures can't be typed directly into the Edit Decision List which more than hampers the potential and convenience of the feature. Hopefully Ambervane will change this in the near future.
BI2E3 TIME CODE There are four types of time code that Videopilot makes use of: Counter Pulse: Not strictly a time code. It is the counter pulse that keeps the video picture stable and synchronised. Unfortunately, counter pulses can never be as accurate in editing as time code because there's no way of differentiating between one pulse and the next. Counter pulse information is transmitted along the control line connected to the source machine and the Videopilot. It's perfectly adequate for carrying out simple editing jobs that don't require a high degree of accuracy.
RCTC Rewritable Consumer Time Code is Sony's time code protocol that can be written on to Hi8 and 8mm tapes after the footage has been shot without losing a generation. The time code information is transmitted along the Lane control wire and read by the Videopilot. Of the three real time codes, Rewritable Consumer Time Code is the only one that can be read while the source machine is in pause and search modes.
VITC: With Vertical Interval Time Code the time code is embedded in the vertical blanking interval of the video picture. Consequently, the picture information is read by the Videopilot.
Although VITC is potentially as accurate as LTC or RCTC with consumer equipment it is rarely reliable enough. The Videopilot lets you check the dependability of VITC encoded tapes.
LTC Longitudinal Time Code, unlike VITC or RCTC LTC is an audio signal. It’s recorded on to the mono linear audio track of a source deck.
Besides reading LTC Videopilot also writes LTC.
This means that any video machine with audio dub can be 'striped' with this code. Assuming that Test the reliability, integrity, and line placement of Vertical Interval Time Code from here.
The record machine is hardwire controlled, frame accuracy is easily achieved.
FEBRUARY 1995 VIDEO EDITOR Each deck will have a slightly different figure from similar models. Adjust from here.
TRANS-CONNECTABILITY If you study the figure on the right you'll notice that the type of video signal going into the Videopilot is homogenous.
If there is a mi* of composite and Y C, you end up having to use the lower grade composite signal.
The Videopilot does not transcode between either type of signal.
Ambervane's spokesman said that to do this would add too much to the retail price.
We disagree. At this price, transcoding should be standard.

And want to adjust a couple of the cue points before committing yourself to creating a master copy.
And it's this that makes reviewing the Videopilot such a conundrum. It's a fantastic piece of kit that grows and grows in its power with every additional piece of compatible equipment added to it.
If the software was tweaked and made easier to use with ihe keyboard, if it had an Altexx port added lo il. Possibly some sort of sample-playing utility so that sound FX could be triggered and synchronised with the video picture as it was being copied, it would be just about perfect.
As it stands, this is a top piece of kit that's been hobbled by the software driving it. If it cost a couple of hundred quid less, it would have earned a Format Gold. But there are too many niggly omissions for that accolade al this price.
However, AmlH-rxane are committed to upgrading and improving Vidropilot. It's worth checking with them if they're upgrading the software. Because, if they do. Video iilol will Ik- an unmissable piece of equipment that'll see you editing well into the new millennium.
Themlo.«tu)esol rMia itn«olhe»roe(ii-v«sion*sito PRE-ROLL AND POST-ROLL When the pause command is issued to a video recorder in recording mode, it typically backspaces in the region of around 25-40 frames.
Then, and only then, does the tape come to a complete rest. This is known as the post-roll time of the deck. When the recorder is unpaused from this state, the tape is then allowed to roll forward and reach the proper servo lock speed before the recording circuitry of the deck switches in. This is known as the pre-roll time of the deck and it typically lasts around 20-25 frames.
To edit without taking the pre-roll and postroll times into account would mean the potential exists for losing between five and 15 frames every edit - an unacceptable figure for anything more ambitious than editing together a collection of Top Of The Pops videos. To counter this, and ensure results as accurate as the recording equipment used, adjustments can be made through the software. It's called inertia, but it's really an adjustment for pre and post-roll figures.
FEATURES • • • • Bristling with them. Lots of potential for professional work to those who can afford the gear.
VALUE • • • Not great value, but not bad either.

Direct Plug-in Replacement Amiga 500 500plus ' GOVAN ROAD, :ENT0N INDUSTRIAL ESTATE, FENTON, STOKE-ON-TRENT, ST42RS, ENGLAND 01782 744707 2jJ Paint 6.1 What could Cloanto have possibly added to make Personal Paint an even bigger draw than before? Nick Veitch gets right to the art of the matter... Cloanto Personal Paint H 11 Effects.gif There have been a great number of paint packages produced for the Amiga. We've had DigiPainl, Speclmcolour, Fantavision, Deluxe Paint in all its various shades. Rpaint.
Brilliance and far loo many derivatives and Public Domain hopefuls to mention. One day, someone will produce one that has it all. And Cloanto hope that Personal Paint will be that one.
Well, they haven't got there yet, but the catalogue of additions over recent months is certainly very impressive. Ppaint is very much of the Deluxe school of paint packages, even to the point that many of the shortcut keys are the same. More of the shortcuts have now been added for the itu 0jgoiJ|Aiaa2j • ehi ’ Personal Paint's impressive storyboard feature displays snapshots of each frame.
SEEING IN STEREO c 1 o a n t o p e r s o a 1 p a nil i n t I m 5L g 0 p T o G z' •
- v*' s S ~‘k JL n g major addition to this latest version of
Personal Paint - animation.
Advanced feature) it does have a rather excellent storyboarding feature. This displays little snapshots of each frame of the animation and allows you to perform many useful functions, such as cutting and pasting blocks of frames, copying them and gradually changing the palettes. One of the features of the Anim7 fonnat is that each frame can have a completely different palette. Timing can be adjusted on each individual frame too.
This is incredibly useful - instead of having 100 frames of black at the beginning of an animation, you can just have one frame which is displayed for 100 times as long as all the others. This not only saves quite a bit of effort, but a significant amount of disk space as well.
The storyboard also features a full undo, provided you have enough memory, something that is missing from any other paint package.
The image processing filters have always been a central aspect of Ppaint's success.
Ppaint has always seemed to me to be a jobbing paint package - one that you load quickly to create brushmaps for Imagine or knock up a quick icon for something or other. But with the addition of decent animation features, it becomes an altogether different proposition.
Personal Paint now supports both the Anim5 (made popular by Dpaint) and the Aninw (made popular by A Image) file formats, which means you can have the choice of animations optimised for size (AnimS) or playback speed (Anim7).
Although Personal Paint lacks some of the advanced animation tools of Dpaint (the move function really - you can't call Dpaint's pathetic attempt at morphing an If you have wandered past a bookshop window recently, read the Mail On Sunday or looked at certain types of wallpaper in a funny way, you have surely come across that amazing technique of visual trickery, the stereogram.
PRINT THAT!
One of the many added benefits in this version of Personal Paint are the great enhancements that have been made to the printing routines. The printing routine now includes direct support for 24-bit colour printing, so all you Fargo Primera owners can get decent quality output without having to resort to using DTP packages.
The print quality of the 8-bit greyscale mode has been significantly enhanced too, to make this the most flexible and best quality print engine on any of the Amiga art packages.
If you have used Personal Paint before, then you will know all about the image processing filters.
These have been extended greatly, and now include, among other things, filters to turn your lovely pictures into evil images from hell that make you go cross-eyed and give you headaches.
Two general types of stereogram are supported - the random dot variety, and the one which uses brush patterns, like those seen on cans of Pepsi.
If you reckon you can make out the picture hidden in the mass of grey dots on the left you'll win one of those unspecified prizes that get decided at a later date. Send your answers to me at the usual address and I'll announce the winner in Serious Intro in two issue's time, so you'd better be quick.
Qitherinv: Ol Halfton* An integrated player is provided, which can display Animo and Anim7 files, and which can also be used to play files in screenmodes not currently supported by Persona! Paint - I lam and I lamb.
Why doesn't Personal Paint support these modes? Although they give you many more colours, they are slow screen modes, both to display and to draw in. For most work, people don'l need them anyway. You aren't going to design HAMS sprites for your next game, are you? HAM animations are generally too slow. A good 256-colour animation appears to he of better quality, because with less colours it runs at a decent speed.
Special v OFFER 1 A you to construct M bitmap fonts.
Another new addition since we last perused the menu bars of this software is virtual memory management. Virtual memory is used when you run out of conventional RAM, which can easily happen with large animations. This memory can be of two types: it can be a RAM buffer on a hard disk, or in the RAM disk. The point of using the RAM disk is to enable your Fast RAM to act as a buffer for your Chip RAM - very handy on older machines, which don’t have as much Chip RAM as newer Amigas.
When the RAM disk is full, the program then stores information directly to a hard disk file. Actually, you could use a floppy disk as a virtual disk, but this would be a very slow solution.
Personal Paint is a very integrated and Amiga-friendly program. It supports the datatype standard for loading images (a JPEG datatype is included) and it also fully supports retargetable graphics, which enable you to open the program in any screen mode available on your Amiga.
This includes any graphics cards which support the display database (as most of the EGS ones do) - at last, a paint package which can take advantage of improvements you make to your system!
This and the frequency of updates (and great upgrade deals) means that Personal Paint is certainly a package that you can believe in. ¦2 COMPARE AND CONTRAST PERSONAL PAINT 6.1 With all the paint packages to choose from, it can be confusing deciding exactly you want, never mind which particular package can give it to you. Certainly, in recent versions, Personal Paint has overtaken Dpaint in terms of flexibility and, some would argue, ease of use.
Personal Paint still lacks some of the advanced features of Dpaint such as lightables, HAM modes, and the Move function.
However. Personal Paint adds a whole range of image processing features, plug-in datatype support and display database support which means it runs fine with 24-bit cards. It is genuinely a very Amiga-friendly program.
But how does it compare with the other art program reviewed this month. Photogenics? We decided to review them separately rather than look at them head-to-head because they are really aimed at different users. If I wanted to touch up my Lightwave renders, or paint an object with realistic brushes, I would use Photogenics. But if I wanted to make an icon for a disk, draw an interface for a program, create a simple bumpmap for rendering, or create any sort of animation l‘d probably use Personal Paint.
There is room for both these programs, and judging by the number of Personal Paint updates we've seen in the last year, it will keep on getting better.

AMIGA 400 AMIGA l» COJJ STAB LOO SUItS PBIMUI STAB LC24 HUES PBINTEB MON no* INOVAtronics claim that with their new CanDo 3.0 authoring system, you can create just about anything. Jason Holborn puts that claim to the test... Despile the availability of many user-friendly languages such as AF67s fantastic Coverdisk program AMOS Professional, programming is still something of an elitist pursuit. The fact is. Programming is damned difficult.
Most of us can manage to wile a little BASIC program that prints Hello World on the screen a thousand times, but try to write something big and complicated like a database or a game and you'll soon discover that, no matter what your chosen language is. Programming isn't as easy as it first appears.
If all of the hype surrounding die release of INOVAtronics' CanDo 3.0 is anything to go by, you don't have to be a great programmer to produce some impressive programs. What's more, INOVAtronics claim that CanDo programs (or decks as they are called) can take full advantage of the .Amiga’s powerful audio and visual capabilities including the AGA screen modes.
There'* no restriction on ihc type or complexity of programs that you can create either - CanDo has already been used to create Workbench utilities, interactive presentations, games, educational software and even tools for scientific research.
Authoring systems such as CanDo 3.0 remove the drudgery of programming by substituting the programmer's text editor with a friendly mouse-driven front end that screen or window full of gadgets and all the code required to make those gadgets function. Getting used to working with such an alien system takes some time but you'll be surprised just how quickly you catch on to the idea.
Automatically generates all the code necessary to handle the framework and user interface that your application needs.
Once this basic framework is in place (its skeleton, if you wish), all that remains is to add the meat - that is. The code required to make your application actually do something useful.
I. ike all good authoring systems, CanDo is based around a system
of cards (hence the reason why CanDo programs are called
decks), each of which holds a Take an address book utility,
for example. In CanDo terms, all you'd have to do is to break
the utility down into a series of cards, one for each major
function - a main card which acts as a main menu, a card for
adding new addresses, another for searching for addresses and
so on. If you like, each of the cards represents a major
sub-routine.
THE CANDO MAIN PANEL At the heart of CanDo 3.0 is the program's main panel which, as any existing CanDo users will have already worked out for themselves, has undergone a considerable facelift over previous versions to give it that extra sparkle of professionalism that was sadly lacking before.
This main panel forms the heart of CanDo - from here you can test your deck, add and delete new cards and so on. You can also create all manner of CanDo objects (buttons, scroll gadgets, pull-down menus and so on) using the scrolling objects toolbar on the right-hand side of the panel display.
To help you define your programs, CanDo provides a comprehensive hierarchical system of menus and requesters covering just about every' aspect of program design - there's a set of requesters for defining buttons, another for pull-down menus and so on.
This front end has remained relatively unchanged since the release of CanDo version 1,0 but. Bowing to considerable pressure, INOVAtronics have now Continued overleaf 4 CANDO PROGRAMMING If you're one of the many Amiga users who shudder at the thought of having to learn to program, an authoring system such as CanDo 3.0 may appear to be an ideal alternative - after all, those icons and requesters certainly look a lot easier to handle than a programming language.
Unfortunately, even CanDo 3.0 isn't completely free of coding. Although CanDo's comprehensive set of requesters take the drudgery out of designing your application's front end, you still need to tell CanDo how each and every gadget pull-down menu option and scroll box that you define should behave. Without this all-important code, nothing happens whenever you attempt to interact with your CanDo Deck.
Every CanDo object that you define can have a script assigned to it. Indeed, some objects can have two or more scripts attached to them which are performed according to how you interact with that object - a button, for example, can have a separate script attached to it that is performed Each and every object that you create must have at least one control script assigned to It.
When you dick on it once, double-click on it and so on. Cards can also have scripts that are performed when you activate or leave that card.
CanDo's scripting language is a fully-fledged programming language capable of handling just about any task you care to throw at it. Like a real language, CanDo's script language contains all the CanDo scripts look no different from the code you’d generate with a dedicated programming language, usual decision making and program control constructs that you'd expect from a structured programming language. It also fully supports all manner of variable types (including arrays) and has a built-in subset of database management commands making applications that need to maintain complex lists of data
easy to create.
F" overhauled many aspects of the interface. The most striking changes have taken place on CanDo' s main panel which now looks far more professional.
Clicking on any one of the many object icons available from CanDo's main panel brings up the editor for that particular type of object. If. For example, you click on the button icon, CanDo asks you lo define the position and size of the button. Once you've done this, the button editor requester appears on screen. From here you can fine tune the appearance and operation of the button to suit your particular application.
As well as attaching scripts to the button. CanDo also provides a fair amount of cosmetic control over the buttons - you can. For example, assign a brush image to the button, change the button’s border image and even control what happens when you click on the button.
Creating an application in CanDo takes time but it's a lot quicker than writing an application from scratch using a traditional programming language. Don't expect to dive into CanDo and immediately start churning out top-notch applications and breath-taking games straight away - although you should be able to get to grips with CanDo's interface design tools fairly quickly, it's unlikely that you'll find CanDo's script language as accessible. Like all programming, languages learning CanDo's scripting functions takes a considerable amount of time and practice.
CanDo 3.0certainlv isn't aimed at users who want to create great programs but are afraid of coding - whether you like it or not, you're still going to have lo be a pretty mean coder to produce a complex application like a database.
For simple training systems and even small utilities, however, CanDo 3.0 (and its brilliant manual) still manages to take most of the pain out of program development. Indeed, the only major spanner in CanDo’s works is its price - £170 is just too expensive. Cj ROOTING OUT THE BUGS Developing an application in CanDo 3.0 may be very easy but that doesn't stop bugs creeping in to CanDo scripts.
Debugging any programming language can be both frustrating and time- consuming and so INOVAtronics have developed a separate utility called CanDebug ($ 199, about £130), a dedicated CanDo debugger utility designed to take the pain out of finding and removing bugs in CanDo scripts.
CanDeBug lets you examine CanDo scripts while they are running so that you can see the effect of each instruction on a CanDo deck. Like all good source level debuggers, you can step through scripts a line at a time or even use a system of breakpoints to define stopping places in scripts. CanDo automatically traps syntax errors but CanDeBug comes in really handy for logic errors - bugs that are introduced due to errors in the design of the code.
WHAT'S NEW IN VERSION 3.0?
MAIN PANEL CanDo's main panel has been overhauled to make it cleaner and much easier to use.
OBJECT CURSOI Edit the size and position of objects at any time by dragging out control points. Object alignment is much easier too thanks to CanDo's all-new Snap To Grid and Alignment requester.
IMPROVED SCREEN AND WINDOW HANDLING: As wall as full AGA support CanDo 3.0 provides improved control of screen and window attributes including better public screen support.
OBJECT BROWSER Shows list of current objects in card.
PALETTE BRUSH FX EDITOR: 50 brush and 27 new palette and genlock effects, all of which can be edited. Supports AmigaDOS 3.0's palette protection feature.
IMPROVED OBJECTS: Virtually all of CanDo's gadget types have been improved. The field object for example, is now fully font and colour sensitive.

MANUAL • • • • • A massive ring-bound affair that is almost too detailed.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • Despite that friendly front end, CanDo's script language still takes time to learn.
FEATURES • • • • CanDo is a very powerful authoring system which uses the Amiga particularly well.
VALUE •• INOVAtronics should take a long, hard look at their pricing policy - CanDo 3.0 is just too expensive.

Programming games in C or Assembly doesn't have to be painful.
Jason Holborn shows you how to avoid distress with help from HiSoft's new games development system.
While BASIC programming languages like AMOS Prafessional and Blitz Basic 2 have made games programming less of an elitist profession, even the most ardent AMDS fan will admit that they don’t provide the same raw speed as pure Assembly language code. However, programming a game from scratch in Assembly language is about as easy as tightrope walking in snow boots.
C jneSmith But with HiSoft's new GameSmith development system, games programming could be within the reach of us mere mortals. Designed for Assembly language and Cprogrammers. HiSoft claim that GameSmith provides everything you need to write any type of game you could imagine.
Shoot-em-tips. Platformers. Adventures- even Sliadmi' Of The Beasl-siy e parallax arcade games could be within your reach.
And you don't need either an assembler or a C. compiler to use GameSmith - HiSoft even include special (IS versions of Dice G and its own Devpnc J assembler (minus the Man Am debugger, however).
The heart of GameSmith is a library file attached to the object file generated by your assembler or compiler using a linker such as Blink. Cprogrammers will find GameSmith most accessible because all the various demonstration listings and syntax definitions in the book are listed in C. The registers required for passing parameters in Assembly language are also listed.
To help you use GameSmith. HiSoft include some demonstration listings which are backed up by a tutorial in the manual which shows you how to use GameSmith to create a simple tank battle game. But very little coverage is given to the actual mechanics of games programming - if you don't already know how to write a game, the manual isn't going to help.
The range of functions offered by GameSmith covers just about every hardware level call that a games programmer could ever need. GameSmith provides commands that let you define multiple viewports and bitmaps (with full AGA support), load IFF graphics into a bitmap, access the .Amiga audio system, hardware and software (blit) scroll a bitmap and animate blitter objects and hardware sprites with ease.
In many ways, GameSmith is like a low- level version of AMOS Professional - it's not quite as user friendly (assembler listings tend to crash more than AMOS programs), but you get that same feeling of being shielded from the complexities of the Amiga's unfriendly Operating System.
GameSmith is a very powerful (and OS legal) package. Although it removes much of the drudgery of writing handler code for sprites, screen scrolling and so on. It isn't as accessible as HiSoft claim. Unless you have a solid working knowledge of Cor Assembly and a rudimentary knowledge of the Amiga's system structures, you're likely to get bogged down. But if you're not afraid of getting your hands dirty GameSmith is worth investigating.
DISTRIBUTOR HiSoft 01525 718181 PRICE £99.95 SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS C compiler or an assembler.
SPEED • • • • Like most programs, GameSmith code requires optimising to get it running as fast as possible.
MANUAL • • • • • A comprehensive and well-written manual detailing each and every function perfectly.
ACCESSIBILITY • • GameSmith is definitely for the more technically capable user.
FEATURES • • • • A powerful and complete development system. Some form of map editor would have been nice.
VALUE • • • • Bearing in mind that you also get a free C compiler and assembler.
GameSmith is very good value.

stylish modem has to go to the X-Link 288 from Wizard Developments, a 28,800 baud modem that performs as well as it looks. If you're a bit short of desk space, the X-Link comes complete with an attachment which allows it to stand on its side or it can still be positioned on its belly. Even the X-Link's status display is stylish with little red icons that light up when the modem is in operation.
In terms of specifications, the X-Link 288 is a giant killer.
Although - like the Speed Conn- - it isn't V.34 compatible, it fully supports the V.Fast Class standard for full 28,800bps data transmission. Its fax capabilities are equally impressive and.
Although it doesn't come with fax software. Wizard sell TrapFax for £35 (a fiver cheaper than the recommended retail price) if you buy the modem from them. Like its major rivals, the X-Link fully supports Group 3. Class I and 2 fax modes. Feature for feature, there's little to separate the X-Link from the Speed Com* which is its closest (and cheaper) rival. Comparing it to the USR 28,800 is a little unfair because the US Robotics model is fully V.34 compatible. But the X-Link 288 is BABT approved so that extra £35 may be worth spending.
80% Depedie You've read our feature on communications - now get on-line with one of these high speed modems. Jason Holborn rides the wave.
Sportster USR USR 28,800 £279.99 ¦ First Computer Centre (01532 319444) BABT approved US Robotics' modems have always been a firm favourite in the Amiga Format office and this new model from the American modem manufacturer certainly isn't going to tarnish that reputation. Modelled in the same rather tacky casing as its V.32bis forerunner, the USR 28,800 certainly isn't going to win any prizes for either beauty or design. Indeed, it's possibly the ugliest modem I've ever encountered!
As the old saying goes, however, looks can be deceptive - look beyond its grotesque styling and you'll find a perfectly respectable modem. The USR 28.800 is the only 28.800 baud modem on test to fully support the new V.34 standard. This means that it automatically slows the transmission speed if the line quality should suddenly deteriorate, reducing the chances of the modem suddenly dropping the carrier.
As you'd expect from a modem of the price, the USR 28,800 provides full fax support when used in conjunction with either the TrapFax or CPFax programs. Although it may be a bit on the expensive side, the USR 28,800 currently represents the state-of- the-art in modem technology and it's still the only 28,800 modem to fully support the
V. 34 standard. Like a can ol Heinz baked beans, you get what you
pay for.
88% Speed Com+ 28800 £214.99 ¦ Siren Software ¦ (0161 796 5279) The award lor the cheapest 28.800 baud modem has to go to die Speed Com+ from Siren Software. Officially endorsed by HiSofl for use with its Termite Comms package (see boxoul). The Speed ( 1111+ is also the smallest modem on offer. Looking more like a radio alarm clock than a high-performance modem, tile Speed ( )iii+ has a small but functional status display on its fascia and little else.
Unlike the two other modems featured here, the Speed Com+ is not BABT approved so - in theory at least - it should not be used on a Iff telephone system. The Speed Com+ is very well endowed. Boasting full V.Fast Class and V32.terbo support, it can communicate at a rate of 28,800bps. Surprisingly, however, it is not fully V.34 compatible (despite the fact that the V.34 standard has now been finalised) so bear this in mind when making your buying decision. On the fax side, the Speed Omit performs admirably. Boasting Class 1 and 2 plus Group 3 fax support, it can send and receive faxes using any
common fax programs. In all.
The Speed Com* offers tremendous value for money. The lack of BABT approval could prove a problem if the man from BT turns up on your doorstep... 85% PROTOCOLS EXPLAINED The three modems featured here support data transfer rates of up to 28,800 baud. As is the case with all new technology, however, the introduction of this new breed of modem has brought with it a whole new bag of protocol jargon that you'll need to be aware of.
If you want a modem that supports the very latest protocols then make sure that it is fully V.34 compatible. Some older 28,800 baud modems do not support this new protocol but - like the Supra 288 - can be upgraded. Not only can a V.34 modem transfer data at very high speeds, but the V.34 standard also allows the modem to slow down if the quality of the phone line deteriorates.
The V.FC standard does not have the automatic quality checking that V.34 offers but still allows data to be transferred at a rate of 28,800 bits per second.
The V.32 terbo standard is based around the same technology as V.32bis but it has been improved to allow data transfer at a rate of 21,600 bits per second.
V. 32BIS MODEMS Since the release of high-speed V.34 modems such
as the US Robotics model featured here, the price of V.32bis
modems has dropped faster than a lead weight. Although V.32bis
modems are no longer the fastest modems available (they offer
a maximum transfer rate - with data compression switched off -
half that of a 28,800 baud V.34 modem), most Comms users
should find their performance more than adequate.
Without doubt the cheapest V.32bis modem we've encountered is the X-Link 144, which is now available through Amiga Formats Readers' Offers pages (turn to page 120 for full details). Retailing for £139.99, the X-Link 144 supports data transmission up to 14,400 baud but this can be increased still further when the data compression and error correction facilities are switched on. Like all good modems, the X-Link 144 also comes complete with full fax capabilities (although you need to buy separate fax software to take advantage of this facility). Group 3 (class 1 and 2) fax transmission up to
14,400 baud is supported.

© DIAL m 2 W & a s Boasting a full Workbench 2.0 front end. Termite is a feature-packed Comms package. Here it is seen logging onto the Amiga Format bulletin board system. Spong2!
There's a lot more involved in getting on-line than plugging a modem into the serial port of your Amiga. In order for the Amiga to interpret signals from a modem, some form of communications software is required. Surprisingly, there are few commercial packages available due mainly to the widespread availability of PD Comms packages such as Term and Ncomm.
PD Comms packages are all very well but the lack of documentation and technical support can be a problem. If you'd rather pay a bit extra for a commercial Comms package, try HiSoft’s new Termite. Written for all 1Mb Amigas with Kickstart 2.04 (or greater), Termite provides everything you need to get your Amiga on line. Supporting speeds up to 115,200 baud, Termite can handle standard Amiga XEM terminal emulations and its own built-in ANSI and VT-102 emulation modes. Like the PD program Term, Termite uses external XPR file transfer libraries. As standard. Termite supports Xmodem, Zmodem, Ymodem
and Kermit protocols. But there's nothing really to separate Termite from the PD package. Term 4.1. A division of SOFTWARE PLUS Britains's largest independent specialist retailer of computer games.

AMIGA DTV CD "The Amiga DTV CD is an absolutely invaluable source off video-related Public Domain and backdrop images."
82% ¦ £19.95 ¦ Almathera Systems ¦ 0181 687 0040 This new compilation is aimed directly at Amiga desktop video fans but should also find favour with Amiga users who are interested in multimedia. Top of the contents list is an impressive collection of DTV-orientated utilities sourced from a variety of Public Domain libraries. The utilities on offer include ImageStudio, MainActor, Vtimer and a wide range of lesser known PD video ones.
The range of DTV support files is equally impressive with the usual selection of 3D objects (in both Lightwave and Imagine format), scanned backdrops (in AGA and ECS formats), bitmapped (colour and mono) fonts, outline fonts and clip art taking centre stage. Highly recommended.
"A veritable treasure trove of original Amiga PD software. This disc is a must for all serious Amiga Public Domain fans."
80% CAM COLLECTION ¦ £24.95 ¦ Almathera Systems ¦ 0181 687 0040 CAM is a French-Canadian Amiga Public Domain collection put together by the Club Amiga Montreal (CAM). Although many of the files on the disc can be found in other Public Domain collections (notably the Fred Fish library), most of the material is original. CAM have tried their best to concentrate on disks with a specific theme (music DTP, games and so on).
Running from a friendly AmigaGuide-based menu system, over 950 disks have been archived on to the two CAM discs. Some of the programs show their French-origins just a little too much with many of the instructions in French but CAM have tried their best to provide English translations too.
SW1 CLUB AMIGA de MONTREAL Contient 2 Disques Compacts Almathera NEXUS PRO "A very professionally produced and well designed collection of extremely high-quality backdrop images."
84% ¦ £TBA ¦ Videoworld Multimedia I I 0141 641 1142 CD-ROM discs packed with scanned images are hardly a new concept but few are as polished as this offering from Videoworld Multimedia. Aimed at multimedia producers, the disc contains hundreds of high-quality scanned images in a variety of different formats and resolutions including full 24-bit JPEGs, 256-colour IFFs and GIFs.
Taken from the Nexus Pro range of background images (which were previously sold on floppy disk), all the images have been designed as backdrops for both multimedia and video work and, as such, are hardly works of art in their own right. That said, the scan quality is second to none making this one of the best collections of images ever compiled for the Amiga. Also on the disc are 470 CompuGraphic outline fonts and 100 assorted sound samples.
PD GALORE "With this collection of programs you can have your own PD library without breaking the bank!"
78% ¦ £19.95 ¦ Express PD ¦ 0116 2559711 It seems that virtually every Amiga PD company is dipping its corporate toes in the murky waters of CD-ROM these days. 17Bit PD Soft and Virus Free PD are just three PD libraries that have taken the plunge in CD-ROM technology. Hot on their heels is Express PD with their PD Galore compilation, a CD-ROM containing the entire range of PD disks from this premier PD supplier. Most of the programs on the disc can be accessed either via a nicely produced menu system which decompresses PD to floppy disk or directly from the Workbench.
There’s the usual selection of games, demos, animations, music modules and fonts. None of the files are particularly original - if you already own a PD compilation, the chances are that you'll already own most of the files on offer.
For first-time CD buyers, however, PD Galore is well worth considering.

D I P package to do they are: not crash, and print. Tor is an improvement in both these vital areas. The improvements in
5. dr's printing are too numerous to mention, but they include
fixing crash problems with the preferences prinler driver,
implementing a Stop Printing gadget, improved Epson support,
and improved PostScript lout printing.
Problems with text importing have also been addressed. Where 3. 0 had trouble with Final Wriirc text files overlapping column edges. 3c now has different, and far less serious bugs with Final Writer text import.
General improvements like improved snap to grid, faster menu scrolling and autoscrolling of the screen window when you are dragging a box lo re-size it all add to the program's usability. The BME image processor bundled with I'agrSlream 3.0c is also improved, with added features and greater stability.
All in all. PagrSlrram 3.0c is beginning to be the program many of us hoped it would be. There is still much work to be done on the package, but by the time you read this two. And maybe more, new updates will have been issued. 1i lllllH iW(|W Now that the program does not crash (at least not often) you are free to investigate the numerous included Arexx macros.
PageStream 3.0c has got improved support for fonts, making it capable of using more PD fonts.
Improved functions in 3c also help update your font list.

WorkI ench Do you need guidance with your Amiga-related problems? Then turn to Nick Veitch for comfort, advice, reassurance and the occasional gratuitous insult. Write to Nick at Workbench, Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth Street, Bath, Avon BA1 2BW.
JUST THE FAX PARNET WORRIES First let me say welcome to the Net. It’s big, exciting and hopelessly disorganised. Good to see you there. Anyway I have a slight problem.
This year I bought a CD32.1 also acquired an SX-1.
I had hoped to connect these with my old A500 which has a hard drive. I got hold of a copy of Pamet, and made the cable. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work.
At the moment I'm running Workbench 3 on the CD32, from floppy, and Workbench 2 on the A500 from the hard drive. Is the problem with the hardware or software do you think? Will I have to upgrade my A500 to Workbench 3? I have already tried running the set-up with Workbench 2, but I have not tried downgrading the Kickstart on the SX-1.
Roland Ward, E-mail There shouldn't be any problem running Pamet over different versions of Workbench. We have used Pamet successfully between a 1.3 and
2. 0413.0 machine with no problems.
Check the cable. Try testing all the connections with a multimeter to be sure that there are no shorts or dry joints. Make sure that the software is set up properly, and that the correct client and host configurations are made.
In your September issue, Jason Holbom reviewed the ACEEX 1414 fax modem. I have the ACEEX 1496 fax modem, probably Ihe model before the 1414, and the TrapFax program, all linked lo an A4000. Unfortunately, 1 cannot (after more than two months of testing) receive or send a fax.
Did you use Ihe ACEEX 1414 with TrapFax and what were ihe settings you used? As a modem my machine works perfectly well with Ncomm but if I transfer these settings lo TrapFax nothing works. If, after an unsuccessful attempt with TrapFax, I switch to Ncomm, I can make a connection to a BBS or the Internet, but everything enters as garbage.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Guy Weyens, gweyens@ziub.ac.be Although we don't have any information on the 149ti. I think you'll find that it has Class 1 fax capability'. Unfortunately. TrapFax onlv works with Class 2 lax modems, so this is probably where the problem lies. The best thing you can do is gel hold of a program called CPFax, which handles Class 1 fax modems, and is available from First Computer Centre on 01 111 2319444, priced £49.99. The problem with the corrupted Comms calls is probably something to do with ihe initialisation ol ihc TrapFax software. Make sure your Comms software does an AT initialisation
siring to reset the modem.
AN INCH TOO FAR I have a basic A1200 and I want to add a hard drive, i have found one at a reasonable price but the problem is that it is an IDE 3.5-inch IBM drive and I am unsure whether it will work or not.
DS Pulleiz, E-mail Ah, the perennial question, h should work. There is no reason why ii shouldn’t, hut there are two problems with ii. If it isjusi a mechanism - will ii lit inside the A1200 case? This varies from Continued overleaf 4 IF YOU HAVE A QUERY... “ t At Amiga Format we aim to answer tas many questions as possible, and attempt to sort out Of course, there are always more questions than answers, so we prioritise queries according to the Nick Veitch 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
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). As you will appreciate, we do get a lot of Workbench questions every month. If you want to get yours noticed, here are a few tips: DO
• Be concise.
• Detail the actual problem as best as 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 getting in touch with 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 like: 'I added a hard drive to my Amiga
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.
1. Yes. If you do not have Workbench 3.1 though, you will have to
get hold of the CD filing system to be able to access the CD
drive properly.
There are versions of this and other CD utilities available in PD libraries, although if you are buying an IDE CD-ROM drive, you should ask if you get these utilities with it.
2. Quite a few CDTV games work on any CD- ROM drive properly
connected to an Amiga.
3. Such a device does not unfortunately, exist
- mainly for practical reasons.
4. It depends what they are. You can certainly use four IDE hard
drives.
5. Because it rots your brain. Just look at Jason Holbom -
Depeche Mode are his favourite group and its turned him into a
bumbling, saliva Gasteiners CD1200 is CDTV and CD” compatible.
See dribbling wreck. Be warned! Our cd round up in AF66 for
more info.
mechanism to mechanism. Almost certainly you will have to modify your machine to accommodate it - you will at least have to cut the metal shielding. Secondly, if it does work, you need to get a power cable for it. Unlike 2.5-inch drives, the larger ones require a separate power cable. You can get around this by connecting it to the floppy power point.
In short, the answer is that you can do this if you know what you are doing and don't mind bits and pieces of your Al 200 being left out of the box when you put it back together.
Or you could try getting a hard drive from someone who specialises in such things, such as Gasteiner (0181 345 6000) or HiQ (0181 909
3885) , who will offer to fit it and also give some sort of
guarantee.
PC DOWNLOADS I read with interest Scott Bovey's letter (PC Downloads, Workbench AF66) about the problems he was having downloading Amiga software from the Internet with a PC. I used to be plagued by this problem when I was at university and found that you have two choices:
1) Get an MS-DOS version of LHA to split the archives. They do
exist - try using Archie or posting to an MS-DOS group on
Usenet.
2) Better still use the Backup command on the PC to back up a
directory of files you’ve downloaded to 720K disks, and use an
Amiga version of Restore to get them back to your Amiga.
The latest version of Restore for the Amiga can be found on Aminet: pcres880.1h.amisc emu40K+PcRestoreV2.
80. (This should be on one line.)
Try ftp.doc.ic.ac.uk. EF Pritchard, efp90@nuke.dircon.co.uk Thank you very much. I hope that the subject is well and truly dealt with.
IMPROVED SIGNAL A technician repaired my standard A600 and he said that there are three ways to connect a TV to the Amiga and that I was using the third best.
I have got the line to the aerial socket in the TV but he mentioned that the best way was to go through my VCR. Can you elaborate on this and tell me what leads I need?
Scott Macdonald. E-mail If you have a video with a composite input (which virtually all of them do), then you can connect the Composite Out from the A1200 for a much better SAD MODE I have several questions about CD-ROMs and IDE interfaces for you.
1. To use an IDE CD-ROM. Can I just plug it into an IDE interface
(such as my Alpha Power)?
2. Will I be able to play games for the CDTV and A570?
3. Can I buy an expansion port splitter and use an A570 and my
Alpha Power with the expansion port?
4. Because I have two IDE-controllers can I use four IDE devices?
5. In your October issue you advised readers not to sample direct
from digital audio if listening to Depeche Mode. Why? I do it
all the time and it works fine for me.
Johan Ostberg llagmarksi'dgen 11 S-69436 Hallsberg Sweden picture. The lead you need depends on your video. The output from the A1200 is a single phono for video, and two phonos for sound. Your video has either phono connectors for all of these (if it is an older model) or a SCART socket. So, the connectors you need are either phono-phono x 3 or Phono-SCART.
Almost any High Street video store should have these cables, and you can expect to pay between £5 and £8 for the SCART, and significantly less for the straight phonos.
RENDER WONDER I have an A1200, which 1 am thinking of upgrading, mainly so I can use it for ray-tracing. I am currently using Imagine 2 (the AF53 Coverdisk version), but I am seriously considering getting hold of Lighters.
1) 1 have been planning on buying a Viper accelerator, there are
a number of versions available, so would I be better off
buying a faster accelerator and no FPO, or getting one of the
slower ones with an FPU? Would this depend on which program I
decided to use?
2) I will be adding 8Mb of memory to the board, so do 1 have to
buy two 4Mb SIMMS, or will one 8Mb one be OK?
3) Can you recommend a different accelerator board, or would the
Viper be my best choice? I am not planning on spending much
over £450 on the board, including the SIMMS, because I am also
going to have to get a hard disk, so please bear this in mind.
4) Finally, on a different subject, is there an ADA compiler
available for the Amiga (preferably PD)?
I am doing a Computer Science degree and have to use the language, but I am forced to use the university Pcs to compile my programs, even though I can write them on my Amiga.
I would be very grateful if you could answer this. I have been getting this magazine since about issue 7 of ST Amiga Format, when I got my first Amiga, so I think I deserve it.
NT Alford. E-mail
1) It would depend on the speed of the FPU.
Certainly using Imagine, a 16MHz 030 with a 50MHz FPU would render faster than a 25MHz 030 on its own. However, generally speaking, faster processors give you a faster machine, which is useful, and usually they have FPU sockets, so you could get an FPU later on for a further increase.
To sum up the rest of your questions, go for the fastest processor and save up for an FPU at a later date. The Viper takes an 8Mb SIMM (in fact it will take a 128Mb SIMM too), so it is probably best to go for one of those. The Viper is a very good choice. If you are unsure, check out our recent round-up (AF63) for more information.
ADA compilers. Hmmm, there used to be one years ago, but 1 don’t know of any currently available. I’m sure someone will write in to correct me though.
POWER PROBLEMS I am using a CD32 with an SX-1 board. Added to this are two floppy drives, a hard drive and a 4Mb SIMM. My problem Ls that the normal CD32 powerpack isn’t providing enough power and so the whole set-up either crashes horribly or simply won’t start up. Do you know where I can get hold of a higher rated powerpack?
Daniel Parkington, E-mail The simple answer is call HiQ on 0181 909 3885.
MEMORY MADNESS Hi, of late I have been regularly visited by the legendary Guru Of Meditation himself - an occasional visit is inevitable I suppose, but the regularity on my system at the moment is beginning to get me down. I live in fear every working moment that he will pop his head through the window any moment.
He doesn't seem to mind which program I’m using. I’ve had him visit while using Directory Opus, Ncomm and a few others though there is one program that never fails to get his attention. When I’m playing Legends Of Valour, he waits till I have been doing exceptionally well then pops up and tells me it’s time to reboot.
The errors he has quoted seem to be different every time though, to be honest the language he speaks seems foreign and garbled... 80000003.008E0488 80000004.00884810 80000004.002B3620 80000004.00341090 8000000B.00019250 I’ve tried reinstalling my hard disk with a back-up from a couple of month’s ago when my life was free from his visits, but to no avail. I’ve also tried playing Legends Of Valour from floppies but still the Guru seems to find a way in.
My system consists of: A2000, GVP HC8 with 52Mb hard drive and 2Mb of SIMMS, Pro ROM Swapper with Workbench 1.3 and Workbench 2.04 ROMs installed and an A2286 Bridgeboard (though I don’t use this any more). Also until recently I had an extra 2Mb on a Supra RAM board which I gave to my brother-in-law who also has an A2000. But my troubles began before its removal.
Since the system behaves normally for ages then crashes for no reason. Could this be caused by some sort of hardware failure? Is there any other possible cause for this behaviour?
Simon Kaye, E-mail The Guru messages are all almost certainly to do with memory I’m afraid. Whether this is a faulty chip, or one that has just become unseated I wouldn’t know. The best thing to do is to take everything apart and push in, wilh a reasonable amount of force, all the socketed chips.
If this doesn't work, it could be a thermally damaged chip, which goes faulty when it warms up. The only way to find out which one is to use a special electrician's freeze spray, which you can get from Maplins and most electronics stores.
CUSTOM SCREEN SAVERS Is it possible to use a Dpainl IV animation as a screen saver on an A1200? The system is fitted with a 130Mb hard drive and Viper accelerator with 4Mb of Fast RAM. If it is possible, what software do I need and where can I get it from?
MikeJones, E-mail The popular customisation program, Maxxon Magic, (80%, AF62) does not allow you to do this directly, but you could do it via an Akexx script. Or better still, you could just write an Arrxx script to sit in the background and play your animation when nothing else is happening. Either way, you should brush up on Arexx.
HARD PROBLEMS I noticed that in AF65 Workbench in reply to the letter Hard Disk Hassles, you put the problem SX-1 QUERIES I own a standard CD32 with an SX-I expansion block and a Zappo floppy drive connected.
1) Can I fit a 180Mb 3.5-inch hard drive from a PC or do I need a
2.5-inch drive?
2) Where can I get the cable?
3) Will I need a new power supply?
4) Will the hard drive have a higher priority at boot-up so that
I need to disable it to boot from CD in the same way as the
floppy has a higher priority than the CD?
5) Can I use the hard drive prepping software that came with the
SX-1 or do I need the Workbench HD disk?
6) What kind of SIMMS (what site) does the SX-1 take, and where
do I get them from?
7) Why doesn't CD0: appear on the boot list when you press the
mouse buttons at reset?
NOT FAST ENOUGH I find my Amiga A4000 030 isn't as fast as I would like it to be. In fact waiting foe the screen to refresh or opening up a new page in Final Writer for example is a real pain.
I want instant results I don't want to wait minutes for a print out from my HP 560 to be processed. I would like a faster machine but finances being as they are I'm stuck with what I've got.
However, and to my question, is it possible to swap my existing 68EC030 processor directly for a full 68040 processor? I think this may tide me over until the RISC processors are available for the Amiga 4000 if this ever comes about.
Andy Gunn, Middlesbrough, Cleveland No, the 040 is not a pin for pin replacement in that way, so you can't just replace it for a faster down to installation problems. I think the problem is that when the A1200 boots up the AGA chip set is not enabled as far as new screen modes go (a CBM compatibility feature).
On the hard disk startup the SetPatch command enables these modes. Older software runs perfectly well if the new modes are not in effect (AGA chip set is on - no adjustment of the boot prefs needed) but refuse to run after the AGA chip set is fully operative after the SetPatch command. The utility KillAGA is very useful for solving this problem. HisloryLine is one game that works in this way. AGA games enable the new modes themselves.
Hope this clears it up.
Derek Piper, E-mail Thank you. With complicated hardware software configurations it is not always possible to test our solutions, so it is nice to get the occasional helping hand from a clued-up reader.
PREPPIE I bought a 2.5-inch IDE drive for my A1200 at the FES. I followed the instructions from AF46 to put it into my Amiga. The drive seems to be in working order - the light comes on and I can hear it, but when I try to use RDPrep to partition it I get a No SCSI Disks error.
Help! Thanks.
Richard Jones, Glamorgan Make sure that Rdhep is configured correctly. If you select the icon and choose Information from the Workbench menu, a requester appears. One
8) Why does adding the SX-1 make the CD12 think there is a CC0:
When there isn't?
Gary Wilson, gu’ilson@teak.shu.ac.uk 1, 2 and 3. A 3.5-inch drive should work, but the internal connector is only for 2.5-inch drives.
In the A1200 this isn't a problem because the power supply can be taken from the floppy port.
If you want a 3.5-inch drive, it would be better to get an external one for the 5X-1, with its own power supply.
4. You can set the priority of the hard drive when you prep it.
It is usually set low by default.
5. If you have software, it should work with the drive - most
software, like RDPrep. Is generic.
6. Standard 72-pin SIMMS in sixes of 1. 2 or 4Mb. Look in the ads
in this issue for a good deal.
7. Possibly because the CD autoconfig hasn't completed by the
time the boot menu is called.
8. Because the SX-1 fools the CD31 into thinking it is an A1200.
Which should have one.
Machine. The best way to accelerate your machine is to get a Warp Engine card from Premier Vision (0171 721 7050).
Of the tool types will be listed as Device = xxxx.
Make sure that the xxxx says scsi.device, because this may be set to something else depending on where you got RDPrep from.
Note, although it is an IDE drive, the Workbench driver is called scsi.device. BAD GAMES I recently renamed a disk icon. Now I seem to get many problems related to validation. The following error messages appear: Error validating Games Block 128093 bad header type Volume Games IS not validated Games is the new name for the disk icon. These problems occur when I load a disk, try to rename or move or copy drawers, try to get a Snapshot and at various other limes.
Saavan Chavda, London The disk has become invalidated when something has been writing to it. This means that AmigaDOS is no longer entirely sure which parts of the disk are being accessed. And in order to prevent any accidental loss of data, it will not let you write to the disk.
Usually Workbench sorts out these problems itself - you may notice some pretty frantic, constant disk activity for several minutes when you boot up. If it is unsuccessful, however, you need to use a disk salvage program such as the PD program Disksalve2, or find a commercial alternative. O Wordworth ihw Wordworth J. Word Proonor for tHe AMIGA Q

VIEWPORT When you want to resize a screen. AMOS Professional works on the screen's viewport rather than the screen bitmap information.
When you load AMOS Pro, it automatically opens a screen for you which can be used to display a maximum of 16 colours in low resolution mode. If this screen isn't to your liking (you might want more colours, for example) then you need to open a screen using the AMOS Pro Screen Open command. Here's a quick rundown of the Screen Open command.
Screen Open N,W,H,C,M N - The N parameter holds the screen number you wish to allocate to a screen. The screen number (a value between 0 and 7) is a value which AMOS uses to distinguish between screens.
W - The W parameter defines the width (in pixels) of a screen. A low-resolution screen should be 320 pixels and high-resolution should be 640.
H - The H parameter defines the height (in pixels) of your screen. The value you use depends on whether the screen is interlaced or not and whether you wish the screen to be in PAL or NTSC mode. See the box on screen combinations.
C - This parameter tells AMOS Pro how many colours you wish to make available to your screen.
FUN WITH PALETTES When a screen is first opened. AMOS Pro automatically allocates a pre-set selection of colour settings to the screen's own palette. If these don't suit your needs, you can quickly and easily change them using two palette- related commands that AMOS Pro provides.
Palette - The Palette command enables you to define a palette en masse - all the colours are defined with a single statement. The format of the Palette command is simple enough, just enter the command followed by a string of three-digit hen numbers (representing RGB values) that define each colour in order one after another (such as colour 0 first colour 1 next and then colour 2). The following example would set colour 0 (usually the background colour) to black ($ 000), colour 1 to white (SFFF).
Colour 2 to red (SFOO) and so on.
Palette SOOO.SFTF.SFOO.SFOF Colour - The Colour command lets you define any single colour register Simply tell it the number of the colour you wish to define followed by a three-digit hex value that defines that colour as an RGB value The following example would set colour 12 to red.
When covering a programming language like AMOS Pro lhal has been specifically opiimiscd for writing games, it's always tempting to dive in at the deep end. We'd all like to become proficient games programmers overnight but that isn't going to happen. The fact is that professional games programmers spend years honing their skills so you're being unrealistic if you think that AMOS Pro is suddenly going to enable you to give Sensible’sjon Hare a run for his money.
Don’t be put off, though. After all, you have one major advantage that Jon did not enjoy - you have a copy of AMOS Professional, probably the easiest to use and most powerful games development language ever produced. Most Colour 12,SFOO games programmers have lo spend years developing routines that handle sprites and bobs, scroll screens, check for collision detection and so on but with AMOS Professional all the work is done for you - you just have to concentrate on the mechanics of your games.
We're not going to dive straight into games programming, though. Instead, we'll be taking a less direct route by concentrating on individual aspects of game design - screen scrolling, how to animate blitter objects, checking for collisions between objects and, of course, the nuts and bolts of writing games.
One of the most fundamental aspects of programming is the screen. Without a screen, a program can’t display anything on the Amiga's monitor. As an Amiga user, you probably already know just how powerful your machine's screen hardware is - not only can you create screens in any one of a number of resolutions and colour combinations, but AMOS also enables you to mix and match screens so that the display you see on your monitor consists of several independent screen zones, each of which has its own colour depth (how many colours it can display), resolution and palette. In all, a maximum of eight
screens can be displayed at any one time.
SCREEN COMBINATIONS AMOS Pro may not support the A1200's extended AGA screen modes but it does handle the full range of non-AGA screen modes.
Screen Format ... Resolution .Colour Combinations ..Screen Mode PAL Low Resolution .320x256 ..2.4,8,16,32 .Lowres PAL Low Resolution Laced ...320x512 ..2,4,8.16,32 ......Lowres*Laced PAL Medium Resolution 640x256 2,4,8.16 ..Hires PAL High Resolution 640x512
2.4,8,16 ......Hires.Laced Note - NTSC vertical resolutions are 200 and 400 pixels respectively.
Tutorial ORIAL FEBRUARY 1995 LOADING AND SAVING SCREENS Once you've opened your screen, you'll want to display something on it. One of AMOS Pro's most useful facilities is its support for the IFF ILBM image file format which, as any Amiga user should know, is a common file format supported by just about every Amiga paint program. What this means is that you can use a paint program such as Dpaint or Brilliance to design graphics for your AMOS Pro creations.
AMOS Pro provides two IFF-related commands - Load IFF and Save IFF. The Load IFF command needs only to be fed the filename of the IFF image you want to use and it loads that image into the current screen. The screen automatically inherits the image's palette too, so you don't have to redefine your screen's palette.
Here's an example: 1 J STATION maattcan ISHWI
- ptRsrtonvt SO' I AMOUNT | All Amiga paint programs support the
IFF file format so you can use them to prepare graphics for
your AMOS Pro creations.
Load IFF "EAM:MyPicture.IFF You can also force AMOS Pro to automatically open a screen for your IFF picture by adding a comma followed by the number of the screen you'd like opened. You can save the contents of an AMOS Pro screen too using the Save IFF command. Simply enter the command followed by a file name and AMOS Pro saves the current screen off to disk as an IFF file under the filename that you specified.
Low-resolution screens can use a maximum of 32 colours and medium and high-resolution screens can use 16.
M - The M parameter tells AMOS Pro what type of screen to open - Lowres opens a low-resolution screen. Hires opens a medium high-resolution screen and adding +Laced to either of these interlaces the screen.
Every screen you open needs its own unique screen number (die S parameter) for AMOS Pro to keep track of it when other screens have been opened. You'll find that virtually all of AMOS Pros WIN UP TO £1,000!

Screen-related commands need a screen number value so they know which screen to work on.
Some commands (such as drawing commands), work on the current screen so you need some way of telling AMOS Pro which screen (if more than one is currently open) it should use.
In this case, AMOS Pro provides a command called Screen which, when followed by a valid screen number, forces AMOS Pro to change the current screen lo the one that you specify - entering Screen 2, for example, would change the current screen to screen number 2. AMOS Pro enables you to move the current screen around on your monitor display so that it is no longer centralised, using a command called Screen Display. This may not sound particularly useful but it comes in handy when you have more than one screen open because you can use the Screen Display command lo position the screens where you
want them - you might want a screen with the player's score and lives below the main screen.
The Screen Display command also lets you resize a screen without reopening it. In reality, you're not resizing the screen but its viewport - the window which the Amiga generates to display the screen's bitmap on your monitor. Because you're resizing the viewport, the screen bitmap data is not affected so you can shrink a screen without the data being lost. Stretch the viewport to iLs original size and the data reappears. Here's the format of the Screen Display command.
Screen Display N,X,Y,W,H N - The N parameter holds the number of the screen that you'd like to work on.
X - The X parameter is a value between 112 and 432 that controls where your screen is displayed on the horizontal axis on your monitor. These are hardware salues so you may need to experiment to get the value you want. The Amiga automaucally rounds these alues up to a multiple of 16.
Y- The vertical position. Values lie between 0 and 312 - a salue over 300 makes the screen disappear.
W - W defines the svidtli of die viewport. This salue is rounded up to the nearest multiple of 16.
H - The height of the screen's viewport.
Once you're finished with a screen, you need to be able to close it and free up the memory diat was allocated to the screen to hold its bitmap information. After the screen has been closed, the memory it occupied is made available to your AMOS program so that you can open further screens. The command to close a screen is Screen Close followed by the screen's identification number (Screen Close 1, for example).

Joining the world of periodical publishing is nowhere near as
difficult as you 1 ‘ might think. Not with your trusty Amiga
and a desktop publishing package at hand. Marcus Dyson
explains a few of the tricks of the trade.
W- - Despite his occasional 'loopiness' his antics under the influence of psychedelic drugs and his preparedness to make some pretty uncommercial recordings, it cannot be denied that Julian Cope is producing some of the most passionate and We often hear about the power of the press. But what is this mythical power? It is the power to inform, educate and entertain people, it is the power to disseminate information. And since the invention of the photocopier, it is a power that virtually everyone has, to some degree.
If you do have a scanner, or know someone who does, there really is no way of stopping you. The power to create professional-looking publications is well within your grasp.
Punk art and literature of the late Seventies made good use of the advent of affordable High Street photocopy shops in their fanzines, flyers and posters for gigs. Indeed much of punk's cutup style, pioneered by the likes ofjainie Reed and Malcolm McClaren was driven by the 'stick it together and photocopy it' ethos.
Now that cheap photocopying has been augmented by cheap home computers, the power of the independent press is greater than ever. Your thoughts and passions can now be expressed in a way that is also powerfully designed, and easy to read. Bui sadly, when I go to a gig these days it's very unusual for anyone to try to sell me a fanzine.
In the early Eighties, there were at least three different fanzines on sale at every gig. These were brief flares of creative ambition which rarely, if ever, made it to issue three. But they were wonderful things, unfettered by the pretensions of the self-styled rock press.
The passing of the fanzine is sad, but sadder still is the fact that the few that are produced these days are often the same sellotape-and-typewriter affairs that were on offer 14 years ago. Hey, I know that many of these are produced by students, and most of them don't have much of a budget, but if you have an Amiga, a copy of PageSeller 2 and a few hours to spend, you can spread your own particular brand of sedition. Here's how.
CHOOSE THE SUBJECT OK, it's a bit obvious, but if you hope to sell a few copies of your rag, it should be about a subject (T, DTP TUTORIAL FEBRUARY 1 995 Cxaoog Ahatory Rsviswa Bad.
Covar font and size you want to use. Cut off the text at the bottom of a column, and do a word count.
This tells you how many words you can get on a column. Multiply this by the number of columns on a page, and you have a word count per page.
You can now calculate how many pages each feature should have. Don’t forget to allow for pictures and headlines. There is no set rule for page planning, it depends on the way you intend the feature to be designed. If you are planning lots of full-page pictures, an article takes up more space than if you intend it to just have a headline and text. It’s something you get used to with time.
MAKE A FLATPLAN A flatplan is a document that forms a diagram of your whole publication. As if you had taken it apart and laid it out on the floor and photographed it from above. Of course, you can’t make one by taking your whole publication apart and photographing it from above, because you have to do it before your publication is even started.
Your flatplan can be done in one of two ways, either straight, starting at page one (the cover) and working through to page 16 (or 8 or 32). The back cover. Or in pairs.
What are pairs? Imagine how you will create your mag. If it is to be A5, you will probably photocopy it on to A4 paper, and then fold it and staple it. This is called saddle stitched in the trade, 1 Word count [5IF that people are interested in and one which you have some knowledge of. So, if your hobby is sucking your head down toilets, a fanzine on the subject may not be a good idea.
If a more mainstream (but not entirely so, or there will be reams of professionally-produced magazines on WH Smith’s shelves) pastime is your passion, or you have a completely different angle on an already well-covered subject, such as the idea of doing a music magazine that can recognise a good tune when it hears one, or a PC magazine that can tell a good game from a semi-interactive graphics demo, then you have found your window.
PLAN THE THING It’s easy to write too much, especially when you are writing about a subject that you are very interested in. An eight-page fanzine on the godlike genius of Julian Cope is a very worthy publication, but not if it comprises of just one huge eulogy to him.
Variety is what makes a mag interesting, so before you even put mouse to mouse mat, write yourself a features list. After every feature put down a word count, and estimate how many pages it should occupy.
COPY FITTING If you don’t know how many pages a feature needs, you need to create a copy-fitting table. Plan your column size, and How a text file into it in ihe dolore te leugait nula facilw.

Sigma ggmgg agggggji Jlaava aztarnat Han* Basertptton r t tanana| by the way. Now take a few sheets of A4. Put them together and fold them to make a 16-page booklet. On page 1 write the number one. Now flip the page and write 2, then 3 and so on until every page is numbered. Now pull your booklet apart and look at the numbers. You will find that 1 and 16 are on the same side of the same sheet, so are 2 and 15, 3 and 14. The only logical coupling is for pages 8 and 9, the centre spread.
So you could make your flatplan up in a logical sequence, or in a printers' sequence (as described above). It is probably better to do it in a logical sequence, because it is easier to see at a glance how many pages each article takes up and to see how they relate to other articles. But it is wise to create a printers' imposition plan too, using the method described above, because when you come to design the thing, you will know which pages to lay out next to each other.
It’s even more important that you refer to your book dummy. Turn page 1 16 over and page 2 15 is on the flip side. Flip page 3 14 over and you'll find 5 13 on the other side. It's vital that you make a note of what pages have to be on die back of each sheet, as well as on the front!
WRITE IT!
If you're creating a whole publication yourself, you probably won't want to write all of it. Sure, if it is a one-off, and not lime sensitive, you might be able to. But if you hope to get one done every month or two, or if the subject matter would suffer if it were not distributed quickly, then you have either saddled yourself with a hell of a lot of work, or you are going to need some help.
If your publication is going to be the newsletter of a club or society, dien you have the membership to turn to for articles, letters and ideas. Otherwise you will either have to rely on some friends, or actively seek the help of others. If you are editing the publication as well as designing it, then you should commission someone to write your articles.
Make sure you commission them in writing with a description of what is required, and get them to sign it. Check die commission has a deadline date on it too, and enforce the deadline strictly.
If you want to include pictures in your fanzine, you'll be pleased to know that you don't have to have a scanner. If you simply create a box (with a border) as part of your document you can add pictures later.
Simply photocopy the pictures to size, using a half-tone screen which you can obtain from good stationers or graphics supplies shops. Then paste them in to the boxes you have left for them, and photocopy the result to produce your finished publication. .

I Pied ¦ "Stopped - T Synthetic sounds (or synthsounds) are a simpler, less memory-consuming alternative to samples, and heaven for those stalwarts addicted to squelchy C64- type sounds. Sadly, though, the sheer complexity of CktaMl'Jfs Synthsound Editor is more than enough to put off all but the bravest.
Well, you’re going to lie particularly brave this month! But first, a word about switching octaves.
As you know, just over two octaves are available on the Amiga's keyboard. But samples can use three octaves, and synthsounds five. So to get at the higher octaves, use keys FI to F5. FI sets the lower octave (keys 7. To M) to octave number I, the middle octave (Q to U) to number 2; F2 sets the lower octave to 2, the middle octave to 3; and so on for F3 to F3.
The current octave numbers are shown in a cycle gadget (such as upper screen, fourth row, far right). Now on with the show... STEP 1 Click F.dit SynthS (lop-right). Now you see why everyone avoids it. But be strong, and kick off by selecting Project menu - New Synthsound.
So just what does everything mean? Well, the two speckled boxes (both currendy empty) are the waveform displays. The left-hand box is the real waveform, the other box is used as a copy buffer and a doodling area. Waveforms are just like blocks in a song: there can Ire more than one of them in a synthsound, and they can be strung together in any order using a playing sequence (the square area full of numbers). We’ll stick to using just the one waveform for now.
STEP 2 Click on the left-hand box, then fill it with a sine wave by selecting Presets menu - Sine Wave. Set keyboard octaves 3 and 4 using the F3 key, then play the sound (use the space bar to stop it). Bit low? Halve the waveform's length by sliding the length Slider from 128 to 64, then select Sine Wave again. The sound is now one octave higher.
Now, keeping the synthsound playing, select the other five presets in turn (using the Presets menu). Then reselect the sine wave.
STEP 3 Next we'll mix the sine wave with a ramp up wave.
Copy the sine wave to the right-hand box using Copy (top-middle): this sets the box’s length to
64. Now click on the wave in the right-hand box, and select
Presets menu - Ramp Up. Finally, click Mix and play the
sound.
Right, time to embellish. The square area full of numbers is in fact home to a simple programming language, used to add volume changes, pitch slides, vibrato and much more to the synthsound. It sounds daunting, but fret not, it's actually pretty easy once you know the basics.
As you'll notice, the program area displays four columns of numbers. The first two columns are line numbers (in decimal and hex), then we have the program instructions for volume and pitch respectively, each terminated by END.
The Volume Program's 40 instruction means set volume to 40 hex (64 decimal which is full volume). The Pitch Program's 00 means play waveform number 0 (the first waveform). A Set Volume and Play Waveform instruction must be present in order to hear the synthsound. Other instructions consist of a three-letter abbreviation, usually followed by a number (always in hex).
For example, a CHD 03 instruction in the volume program means change the volume down (fade out) at speed 3. Let's add this instruction.
STEP 4 Firstly, switch on Edit Mode (you'll need to drag the window downwards to reach the main screen's Edit check box. Or use Edit Mode's keyboard shortcut: the Esc key). Now click inside the window to activate it, and to insert a new entry at the end of the volume program, press down and Return. Press D to insert a CHD instruction, then change the 00 to 03 by pressing right and 3.
Switch off Edit Mode, then play the sound using the keyboard. Notice the fade?
STEP 5 Next we'll add exactly the same instruction to the Pitch Program. Switch on Edit Mode, then move to the pitch program's END by pressing up OTHER SYNTHY FEATURES You can mark a range just like in the Sample Editor (click the Pixel cyclegadget twice before dragging the mouse), or use Range All or the three Cursor buttons. The eight range buttons (bottom-left) should be self-explanatory (remember that the copy buffer is the right- hand waveform box): use Double with Range All to shift a waveform's pitch up an octave.
In the Waveform menu, use Change Volume as in the sample editor (50 halves the waveform's volume). Stretch is weird, haven't found a use for this one guys, but bear in mind that a positive number stretches right, negative stretches left. An interesting pitch program instruction - ARP (use the A key to enter) - creates an arpeggio (a rapid change between given pitches). Specify the pitches after the ARP instruction, then end with ARE (use the E key).
For example, the instruction ARP 00 04 07 ARE creates a major arpeggio (00 0307 creates a minor). As always, experiment!

Now switch off Edit Mode and play the sound. So a CHD in the pitch program causes the pitch to be lowered rather than the volume.
STEP 6 Let's remove the Pitch Program's CHD 03 and add a vibrato instruction instead. Move to the CfID using up (twice), then press Del once. To set the vibrato depth to 4, we'll use the VBD 04 instruction. Press V. right and 4 to insen it. Now we'll use VBS 32 to set the vibrato speed to 32 hex (50 decimal). Press Return. Shift-V this time, and type 32. Finally, turn Edit Mode off as usual and play the sound. Sounds better already.
STEP 7 For the final touch, we'll change the volume program again. How about making the sound start sofdy, gradually louden to full volume, wait a moment, then fade away? This introduces the CHU (change up) and WAI (wait) instructions.
Turn on Edit Mode, then use the up , lefl and 1 keys to change the 40 at the start of the volume InsertJ_DMete_ | Iransition Range |8 | | End [0 j | program to 10. This makes the sound start at quarter-volume.
Now move the cursor to the CHD (make sure the cursor is over the C), and press Return U right 3 to add CHU 03. Next, add a WAI 20 instruction using Return W 2. Now switch edit mode off and play the sound with your eyes closed... a violin? Cello? Try changing any of the numbers in the program (except the 00) to different values, and see what happens.
Now, we’ll start a new synthsound. This one uses 11 different waveforms instead of one: a triangular wave in waveform number 0 slowly changes into a pulse wave by number 10. You'll see what I mean.
STEP 8 Select instrument 02 and choose Project menu - New Synthsound. Click on the left-hand waveform box and select a triangular wave (Presets menu).
Now keep clicking New Waveform (on the left) until die current waveform becomes number 10.
In waveform 10, select a pulse wave.
Now the magic. Select Waveform menu - Start Transformation to mark the start of the change at waveform 10. Now use the button just below the left-hand box to return to waveform 0.
Finally, select Waveform menu - Do Transformation. Nothing appears to have happened, but use the button to display the other waveforms and notice that (hopefully) the triangular wave smoothly becomes the pulse wave.
Inst Paraws Edit _| Spact _| Chord &| On Off I I I I I I I I I I I I I I | l ll*tKlr Our lovely new waveforms won't play yet, though: the pitch program only contains a Play Waveform 0 instruction. We need to tell OctaMFl) to play waveforms I to 10 too. So we need to enter numbers 01 to 0A (hex) into the Pitch Program.
1 low boring.
But wait! There's an easier way.
STEP 9 Move to the Pitch Program's END (remember to turn on Edit Mode), press Return, and change the new number 00 to 0A. Move back up to the 0A, and click Transition (on the right). Use «lown to confirm that all the intervening numbers have been added. Now we'll create another transition from 0A to 01. Move to the END. And add a number 01 (use Return). Move up to the 01 and click Transition again. Finally we need to jump back to line 00 at the end of the program, causing a repeat. So move the cursor over the E in END, press Return and J. Switch oil Edit Mode and play the sound. Spooky... Try
changing how quickly the pitch program is executed using the Wave arrows (bottom- middle). And use Volume for the volume program.
STEP 10 Finally, close the window and save the synthsounds if you wish, use Instrmenu - Save Instrument, eidier format is fine since they’re saved its neither. 'li HUNGRY FOR MORE?

Etaosa cootocr our Iva.ham Sranth for rhasa products 3D MODBLLINO FEBRUARY 1 995 Every 3D user warns new models or textures for their collection. But, unless you are a member of the 24Bit Club, where can you find the vast amount of 3D material available?
Answer, an Amiga 3D Bulletin Board.
The UK has a good number of 3D BBSs where Imagine and Lightwave users can download new material. We recommend Acdva International: 0181 986 5964, The Black Hole: 0121 421 4835 and Mostly Harmless: 01705 614 824.
These boards operate a flexible upload download ratio system, which means to get access to the items featured on this page, you might have to upload something if you do not already have an account with them. If you do not have anything to upload, all the BBSs offer unlimited download access for a small fee.
Rich people can contact the following international BBSs whose main support is for Lightwave 3l Grafix Attack: 0103 110 474 1062; Ughtwaved 3D: 0101 510 228 0886; Obstacle Illusion: 0101 616 791 2109; Studio Amiga: 0101 817-557-2111; Media Zone: 0101 305 821 0455 NEW ARRIVALS Looking for a good Earthsccne object for Lightwave- Erik Flom's impressive Earth 4000 was selected by Newtek for inclusion as a Toaster 4000 switcher effect and includes an installation script with instructions if you want to use the object commercially. (One disk by post, Elf4000.LHA by modem).
James Hasting-Trew has released a superb collection of organic trees for Imagine and Lightwave. This set has high and low resolution versions of four different trees. A combination of colour and transparency mapping and simple object framework for these true-colour image maps produce highly tietailed foliage. Commercial use of these objects should be negotiated with the author. (Six disks by post, Treekit.l.HA by modem.)
Club member, Alex Kcwin has released a disk called Lightwave Towers. It contains two objects and a complete set of Bump, Colour, Luminosity and Specular maps, to give you amazing looking futuristic towers.
(One disk by post, Towers.LHA by modem.)
(annen Rizzolo is one of the most prolific supporters of Imagine anti OfialVision and his latest release. Part And Particles For OpaU’amt. Has features such as circular, hexagonal, septagonal. Octagonal, nonagonal or decagonal lens Hares enabling you to create your own lenses. Particles can emanate from a dynamic (movable) coordinate in your animation, or from any side of the screen such as rain falling from the top of the screen. Particles can have motion blur, they can wiggle horizontally and or vertically and cast a shadow.
Pari And Particle costs $ 99 (approx £62), and can lie ordered from Carmen on 0101 619 573 0285. Or contact him via Internet at: CarmenR@cup.portal.com. He accepts credit cards.

RISCY BUSINESS I noticed you drooling over the PowerMac (AF6S) and was interested in particular by the comment: 'Just think what a RISC-based Amiga will be capable of.
The fact is that the birth of a RISC-based Amiga will mean the death of everything we like about the Amiga: there will be no more one- disk operating systems; games on floppies will be next to impossible to find and there will be no compatibility with existing Amiga software. Everything will have to be piped through a software translator, or be re-compiled for the RISC chip
- take a hard look at how few Mac or PC programs have been
re-compiled for that wonderful PowerPC RISC processor (in a
market a lot bigger than the Amiga's).
Oddly enough, you can get RISC performance out of an Amiga just by using a Motorola 68060 (a hybrid chip which converts 68K CISC-code on-the-fly to feed its internal RISC engine), with no change to our favourite operating system or most applicauon software; and this would allow R&D resources to remain focused on the AAA chipset, where they belong.
Keep in mind that the 68060 was designed for Apple to improve the Mac’s computing performance without a new operating system, and has since been steered toward embedded applications, where tiny operating systems are a big advantage. Because these embedded applications demand faster, more agile processors to lie programmed by self-admitted 68K nuts. Motorola will continue to develop exactly the sort of CPUs the Amiga needs, no matter where the PC world takes their particular lunacy.
Think about it: If your next Amiga is a RISC-based machine, you'll be looking at 8Mb of RAM just for system requirements. And do you really want to have to install Workbench 4.0 from a CD-ROM?
Mr Challeron, London I appreciate what you 're saying, but if progress is to continue, you have to start somewhere. You are almost completely technically accurate, but the future of high-end applications on the Amiga does not lie in CISC technology any more.
Motorola have abandoned the 68k series, primarily because for the increase in production and design technology, they are not achieving a great deal more in performance. RISC chips are simpler to design, cheaper to manufacture and can result in greater performance. The downside of RISC is an increased memory overhead and more complex system software. I would be surprised if a 68060 accelerator for the Amiga did not appear in the next few months.
Rut to design a new machine (which will be a year in the making) around a chip set that is all but discontinued would be a little foolish. Also, I see no reason why the new machine shouldn't be a hybrid, including a 68020 (which are dirt cheap) for a fall-back Amiga-native mode. The first RISC machines will be in the high-end league, so games compatibility is not immediately important. What could be very important is the ability to run software designed for RISC-based Macs and Pcs.
Hopefully, in a couple of years' time, 8Mb of RAM will not be terribly expensive. I remember a 16k RAM Pack for a 7.X-80 costing nearly £100 and that was only a little over 10 years ago. You should be pleased al the prospect of a base machine with 16Mb of RAM.
I'm afraid progress is not always painless and not always worthwhile, but it happens anyway.
WHAT'S MY BEST MOVE?
Soon our family is going to move house. I don't want to, so my parents said they will make it up to me by buying me an A1200, I’m writing to ask you what to buy (I want to use CD technology and FMV). Should I get an A1200 with a 127Mb hard drive and a Zappo or Commodore CD drive, or a CD32 with an SX-1 expansion module, a 120Mb hard drive and a keyboard?
Bearing in mind that I do a lot of creative work (music, graphics and AMOS programming) as well as playing games, is there any way anybody will conjure up an FMV- compatible A1200 add-on, or will the A1800 have this option (or built-in FMV compatibility)? Please help an Amiga-crazed A500 owner longing for some speed to help me write you letters in PageSetter 2.
Andrew Bruce, Chester, Cheshire It depends on how much you want the FMV compatibility. I don i think you 're going to see an FMV-compatible A1200 for some time - so the CD32 SX-1 solution is your only answer.
But! I do think you 're over estimating the uiorth of FMV. All it does is show pictures, and you can already do that from CD to a reasonable quality TO THE POINT... I know the Zappo CD drive can run most CD” software and Amiga CD-ROM programs but how can I save CD1' games?
Neville Hearn, West Sussex The Zappo has a built-in library called non-volatile which can be used to re-route data destined for the flashRAM to any file on a floppy disk.
Could you mention in AF reviews whether CD32 software is compatible with the Zappo CD-ROM Drive, and possibly include a list of software for the CD32 that is already compatible.
R MacDonald, Warrington, Cheshire Funnily enough, we have already instigated this very feature - turn to page 65 to see it in full flow.
After receiving my copy of Imagine 3,1 was disappointed to find that the manual and Read Me files were so poorly written. Come on AF how about running more Imagine tutorials on how to use textures and understanding the manual.
Greg O'Connell, Liverpool This is just one of the many letters I've received about Imagine. And you'll be happy to hear that we'll be having a new series of tutorials starting soon!
I'm thinking of buying the Canon Ion still camera.
I intend to transfer images via a digitiser on to a
3. 5-inch floppy disk producing a slide show effect with music or
basic sound effects. Is it possible? If so could you please
tell me how and what I need to achieve it.
The PageSetter 2 Coverdisk (AF63) is brill I But it won’t import anything from Wordworth - is there any way around this? It's the spell checker I really miss. Perhaps there's a PD word processor with spell checker that you could recommend?
Bill Andrews, Northern Ireland You certainly can take grabs directly from the Canon Ion camera - buy any video digitiser that accepts a composite signal (99% of them do) and has an integral RGB splitter. We would recommend the ProGrab 24 (reviewed AF65, 92%) from Harwoods (01773 836781).
As for the slideshow, why not use the AF67 AMOS Professional Coverdisk? It can load pictures and replay sound samples and music modules PageSetter 2 won't import Wordworth documents because the file formats are different. But you can use Wordworth to prepare raw text for PageSetter 2 documents. Simply save the text within your Wordworth document out to disk as an ASCII file and import it into a text box.
THE MAN AT THE TOP Write to Commodore UK managing director David Pleasance do Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth St, Bath BA1 2BW.
AND NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS I would like to comment on the letter written to you by Anthony Gallagher in the November issue. Firstly, if the 'insignificant few' who support the Amiga are dwindling and turning to the PC why are several large companies fighting to buy Commodore? Even after months of bad news about Commodore and the Amiga's uncertain future, publishers are still developing games and utilities for what they know is a loyal band of users.
These are people like me who bought the Amiga because it can do the same things as a PC but is much cheaper and doesn't require extra sound and graphics cards to run some games or applications. Although I am disappointed about the lack of an FMV CO drive for the A1200 I don't see myself as having been "shafted" by anybody at Commodore.
Graham Spratt Betties. Suffolk Well, what a nice change to have such a positive letter to respond to, after what you aptly describe as months of bad news about Commodore. The computer and video games industry is going through a transitional period right now. For a number of good reasons. Firstly, it is certain that end users, just like you, want more. No longer are poorly animated stick-like characters with mindless object ollecting tasks to complete, satisfactory methods of stimulation. If you want a challenge, with the right level of realism, the 16-bit systems are capable of delivering
this.
Secondly, MS-DOS Pcs are, as a direct result of power-hungry software releases, increasing in price, reflecting the massive amount of RAM and higher powered chips necessary to provide an acceptable level of performance. The A1200 provides the best of both worlds, it is perfectly capable of running the best games and excels in productivity and multimedia applications. As far as FMV for A1200 is concerned, there have been some major developments in MPEG1 chip technology, and it is our intention, once our management buy out is completed, to re-evaluate the ability to provide this feature. I will
keep you posted through these pages.
K The amazing AFS3 Imagine Coverdisk.
Look out for more AF tutorials soon.
Without the expense of the MPEG add-on.
If you can live without EMV (and, let's face it, what are you going to do with it al the moment?) I think the A1200 and Zappo drive is the more elegant system.
A WORD FROM DOWN UNDER Life here in Australia can be so hard at times. Amiga machines are not very popular down here we brought ours over with us and it's difficult to get games - even PD games. We are months behind getting AF, and when we do all the competitions are out of date.
Could we have a special competition for Antipodeans who stay faithful to the Amiga in a country full of PC snobs?
I need a hard disk drive, if you're looking for ideas for a prize... Mark Whitecross, Onkaparinga Hills, South Australia The real problem is that if we did that the people who had entered in the UK would have to wait ages for the winners to be announced. Sorry, but we have to appeal to the majority.
A nd look on the bright side: at least you don V have to live in the UK where it rains every other day.
CONCISE, CLEAR AND PERTINENT I’m an American and I’m also a prospective Amiga buyer who was impressed with the capabilities of his friends' wimpy A500.
1) How can you afford to give away such completely fabulous and
expensive Coverdisks? Are they all company-sponsored promos,
or factory leftovers? Some are great (Imagine, G2, OctaMFJ),
ClariSSA), but unfortunately some back issues are sold out.
2) The A1200 is cheap, has up-to- date technology, and is very
expandable - sounds like the A500, only five years on, so why
doesn't every Amiga fan save up a bit and buy an A1200? It
will catapult the average Workbench level to 3.0, boost the
stability of the newly- owned Commodore, and improve the
Amiga's reputation.
3) An A1200 with a 340Mb +50MHz Blizzard accelerator (with a
33MHz FPU and 4Mb RAM) and loads of free sof tware costs less
than an A4000 40 with a 250Mb hard drive (prices from AF62).
So unless you're a movie producer with an extra $ 2,000, why
buy an A4000 40?
4) Finally. I love AF, but it costs £111 to subscribe (or $ 200)1
I could buy 2Mb RAM with that! I live in Hawaii, which is as
far away from F.ngland as you can be and still be on dry land.
Could you offer alternatives? Is AF cheaper in the US? Do you have a US relative you could recommend?
Brian Sturm, Kaneohe, Hawaii, USA
1) The exact mechanism of how we organise our wonderful
Coverdisks must, I'm afraid, remain a secret. But rest assured
they 're not going to stop for the foreseeable future!
2) I'm sure everyone who can afford it has already upgraded!
3) The A12IMI isn't as expandable as the A4000 - the A 4000 has
four Zorro slots instead of one, and the A4000T has seven!
But, yes, they ’re a bit pricey.
4) Sadly, the only way to get a genuine Amiga Format in the US is
to subscribe. It's expensive, but it's worth it.
And, like said to Mark Whitecross of South Australia, I find it a little difficult feeling sorry for someone who lives in the blissfully tropical climate of Hawaii.
ASKING THE IMPOSSIBLE Is there anyone who can put me on to a piece of hardware or software that can read IBM and Mac programs and convert them to Amiga style so that I can use them in my A500? It seems that there is little coming out in the games area for the Amiga but quite a lot for IBM.
Also, is there any way of doing a similar thing with games written for the A1200?
If I get a CD drive, can my extensive library of over 600 games be transferred to CD? Can back-ups be made of Cds? I have back-ups of all but two of my games.
It is obvious that the Amiga is alive and well in the UK but we need a lifeline because there are few new games coming this way.
PhiUebrand, Sydney, Australia Well, if there was a program that could make IK!games run on an Amiga, the writer would make themselves a small fortune! Unfortunately, the code that sits on a Mac or PC disk is written with the processing capabilities of the Mac or PC in mind and simply will not run on an Amiga, even if you could read the disk (which you can with MS-DOS disks using CrossDOS).
You can already emulate Macintosh hardware with the F.mplant hardware (Bliltersofl - OI9t)8 220196), and the PC version was launched at the World Of Amiga show in December.
Similarly A1200 games use the Amiga's 32-bit architecture, and no amount of fiddling will get the game to run on an A300.
Backing up your software to (J) can 'I really be done without some very expensive CD-writing equipment. So unless you have a couple of thousand pounds and lots of technical knowledge, that's a 'no'. Your best bet would be to upgrade to an A1200 - this would solve all your problems in one go!
MORE CDS, PLEASE I am writing to you about the lack of cover Cds on Amiga magazines. The only ones that I notice are for the CD32. What about owners of A570s and CDTVs? I have a CDTV Pametted to my A1200 with which I use the PD collections on CD.
There are probably quite a few people like me who would like to see a cover CD each month becaiLse without it these machines don't really have any support. You can’t say not enough people own CD drives because you only have to pop into WTI Smith and see that PC and Mac magazines all have cover Cds and 1 bet only a fraction of people who own these machines also have a CD- ROM drive.
Darren Noyce, Stowmarket, Suffolk At the moment, the ratio of floppy drive owners to CD-ROM drive owners is only about 20:1, and so a cover CD would be useless for about 93% of our readers. The ratio amongst Mac and PC users is much, much higher: almost every new Mac and PC now comes with a built-in CD-ROM drive.
However, we are constantly looking at CD and I don V think it will be long before we recognise the CD format - perhaps we'll have lo do a split run of AF with a few thousand carrying Cds while the bulk carry floppies. Stay tuned! 5 A worth £54.99 for A the bast ¦L Gallery picture.

ARABIAN KNIGHTS By Nathan Powell, Manchester This picture proves that you don't need an AGA Amiga to create fantastic artwork. It was drawn in Dpaint IV on an A500. Nathan wants to work in the computer industry as a graphic artist.
HELL BLAZER By Anthony Carpendale, North Yorkshire Anthony sent us a disk of 12 images but this rather disturbing one was undoubtedly the best. Drawn using 32 colours, the illusion of many more colours is achieved using a variety of dither patterns.
LA By Darren Barwise, Doncaster Drawn exclusively in Cloanto’s Personal Paint 4, this effective image from DarTen Barwise demonstrates perspective (and how difficult it can be to get right).
Worth examining is the perspective of the building on the far right of the picture.
DEATH STAR ASSAULT By Wei ho De Wit, Holland Since the release of NewTek's Lightwave 3.5, the quality of rendered images sent to the AF Gallery has increased enormously. This image was rendered on an A4000 030 and took almost six hours to render with full anti-aliasing turned on.
SEE THE FUTURE By Edward Moyse, London This moody 16-colour image was drawn completely by hand using just a thick brush and Dpaints powerful Blend tool (Edward's favourite drawing function). He is particularly chuffed with the highlights on the crystal ball.
