Professional Draw
The Ultimate Drawing Tool.
Gold Disk introduces the first serious illustration program for the Amiga: Professional Draw. It has opened the door to professional quality, camera-ready color illustration on the Amiga.
And it is redrawing the boundaries of Amiga generated graphic art and design.
That’s because until now, Amiga artists have had to settle for bitmapped painting programs that leave you with jagged circles and "stairstep" diagonal lines.
Not Professional Draw. It's a si nut u red graphics program that smoothes out the "lassies", no matter how far you enlarge your pictures,
50 now your graphics don’t just look good on screen, they look good where it counts: on
4_r'
paper. And Professional Draw lakes full advantage of your printer’s resolution, whether it’s a 240(1 DPI phototypesetter, a PostScript laser printer, a color inkjet, or a dot-matrix model.
You’ll set access to over a
C-
million colors. A powerful assortment of geometric and freehand drawins tools. Reflection, rotation, and distortion tools. Full text capabilities. Even a built-in color separator. Best of all, you can import your drawings into the next upgrade of Professional Page and bring your desktop published documents to life.
So call Gold Disk, today, at I- 800-387-8192 and order your copy of Professional Draw for only

ZEITGEIST
Ho. That’s enough Xmas rambling for now. On to the good stuff.
“Think of this as our holi(l i
I
offering;'
IX THIS OVERSTUFFED issue you will find the ultimate, definitive, all encompassing, once-a-year, mundo-macho software buyers guide! If ii runs on an Amiga, it is in here somewhere, and if it isn’t listed in these pages, then either you don’t need it, the company never told us about it, or we made a mistake (highly unlikely, but stranger things have happened).
We spent a lot of effort pulling together this list of software. We created a database of every known company on the face of the planet, sent it off to our team of psychics who then divined which companies have people working for them who have heard the word “Amiga.” That list was promptly shredded.
We then translated the word "guide" into many diverse and archaic languages (not Swahili, though) and determined the panciiltiiral impact that tongue twisters have had on preschool teachers in the $ la- 25,000 income range. Those results we threw awav as soon
i
as they were generated (so that it didn’t effect the overall random skewing of the guide compilation).
In the instances where exhaustive statistical analysis re-
.
Vealed a correlation between fingernail biting and penum* bral eclipses falling in odd
years, we used a highly sophisticated and somewhat arbitrary AI (artificial ignorance) program to select the companies we actually called. If they answered on the third ring, we hung iip: if they answered on the fifth ring, they usually hung np, and if they didn’t answer at all, then we just guessed what they were doing.
Occasionally, we ended up in communication with a manufacturer who was actually
i
producing Amiga software (this kind of thing is almost unavoidable when you are in this business). If they couldn’t be put off with a barrage of insulting remarks and insisted on telling us about their product, then we asked a series of ycs-or-no questions to determine the exact nature of the software. “Are you drinking coffee at this moment',” “Do you believe in trans-channeling?," “What color is the rug
in vour office?” T hese and

oilier marginally relevant queries were usually enough to discourage even the most exuberant marketing person.
Despite our indifference (some might say incompetence), lists just seemed to appear. Perhaps it was fate, or Karma, or the hand of some unseen force, I believe the real reason we did this guide was that a simple list was much easier to put together than a hunch of articles with illustrations. Topics, and all those different words. Whatever the reason, we somehow managed to finish it, so here it is.
The Amiga World Software Buyers Guide. I.ike Speigel, Sears, and whatever the name of that catalog is that has ali the chocolate logs and cheeze balls that everyone gets but never remembers to order from even though they were only going to order something for themselves anyway, all rolled into one.
Think of this as our holiday offering. A hit of cranberry and some gravy on a turkey TV dinner. A few new buttered kernels strung on an aluminum tree. A wreath stolen from your door. A white plastic Santa leaning, flashing, waving to 110 one in your yard. Something new to read when the re-re-run Xmas specials on television have you on the verge of Santacidc. More than just another tie or pocket calculator. Beyond the Cl inch and Burley Ives, the Comos and the Scrooges. T his is the real thing. The true spirit of giving. Just have your credit card ready and happy, happy I10.

Comments, complaints, and concerns from, Amiga World readers.
And the Winner (Finally) Is. ..
EDITOR'S NOTE: We apologize to all our readers who have been following Amiga World’s Sunnier '88 Treasure Hunt over the past several issues. It must have been an unpleasant shock to read in last month s Contest Results arte cle (Nov. '88, p. 76) that where the winner’s name was to appear, the following line was printed: **That lucky person's name f and hometown."
Because we wanted our readers to be informed of the complete contest results as quickly as possible after the September 16 drawing, we made arrangements with our printer to patch in the winner's name as a last-minute change just before the issue went to press. Through circumstances beyond our control, the printer failed to execute our wishes. We are well aware of the enormous amount of time and effort so many readers put into solving the contest, and we deeply regret this unfortunate omission.
We did indeed have a Treasure Hunt winner Dick Newell of Billings, Montana whom we contorted immediately following the Grand Prize drawing. For more about Dick, and a list of the consolation prize winners, see “Notepad," p. 10, in this issue.
Again, our apologies for the disappointment this omission may have caused, and our warm appreciation for the support and enthusiasm shown for the contest.
Dear Santa. ..
I’M WRITING TO you early, Santa, to give you time to prepare for December 25th.
In my A2000, I'd like a 68030 with a 25 Mhz coprocessor, MMU and -I megs of 32-bii SRAM. Please, Santa, don’t make me wait till the next decade for such a board to be available for less than the price of my A2000.
Oh! And Santa, another thing, let’s not play IBM’s planned obsolescence game. The next chip RAM plateau must be two megs. And I’d like it next week- 1 can’t wait till Christmas.
This is the computer business Santa, and there are Mac I Is out there to contend with.
My chimney’s the third one down on the left.

Bring Back The 1000
I HAVE BEEN reading about the problems that Fred Kuhl- man and John Payne have had with the Fat Agnus chips in their Amiga 500s [“Fat Agnus on the Loose,” Repartee, May '88, p. 10, and “Another Ixmion," Repartee, Sept. ’88,
p. 8]. Boy do I like the Amiga 1000! I have had the A1000 for about three years, and I have not had one glitch due to the computer.
Commodore should start manufacturing the Amiga 1000 again. They should also improve (I guess 1 should say repair) the A500. If the bugs in the A500 can’t be fixed, then the Amiga 1000 should he the obvious answer,
Marc Hoffman
Julesburg, CO
I FULLY AGREE with Rick [ones [“New Motherboard,” Repartee, August ’88, p. 8]. I have owned an Amiga 1000 for almost two years and 1 wouldn’t trade it for any of the new Amiga models. 1 think Commodore made a big mistake by discontinuing the A1000. The gap between the 500 and the 2000 is too large.
Let them make a new A1000, a computer for the more serious hobbyist and artist. It should be specially designed for graphics, desktop publishing, animation, CAD, music, desktop video, etc. And with enough internal memory to cope with all this and the possibility for internal RAM expansion.

RAM-Disk Support For Games
[ HAVE AN Amiga 1000 with two megs and 1 like to play games on my machine as well as do real work. I would like to see the companies who develop entertainment software recognize the existence of machines with more than 512K. Simply, use a RAM disk for disk-intensive games, such as Destroyer by F.pyx. This could make play much more enjoyable, as well as faster. I would not mind paying a small extra fee to receive a version with RAM-disk support, or the command sequence required to alter the program myself.
E. Paul Austin

One More Button
I ENJOY PLAYING games on my Amiga 500. But there are times when I look back to my Apple II days wistfully. Usually it’s because the Amiga lacks a two-button analog joystick. One more button would add a new dimension to many games.
Isn’t there anybody out there willing to make a few bucks by selling a two-button joystick? If one is made and sold for S10-S15, I’d buv a couple, and I'm sure there are thousands of others who would do likewise. Once the hardware is out there in quantity, the software will follow to take advantage of it.

EVEN THOUGH WE failed to publish his name in time to appear last month (see “Repartee,”
p. 8, in this issue), and despite having to contend with such well-known headline grabbers this fall as George Bush and Mike Dukakis, Dick Newell still managed to become a household name throughout America. You probably caught the Billings, Montana resident on the Carson show or chatting with Ted Kop- pel, or perhaps you saw him on tlie cover of Time, and immediately recognized him as the winner of Amiga Worlds Summer '88 Treasure Hunt. (Actually, in next month’s column you will be seeing Dick and his wife Carolyn collecting their new Amiga 2000 at the Mark Hopkins Hotel in San Francisco.)

Shows and Games in the UK
THE PERSONAL COMPUTER SHOW, held at London's Earl’s Court, is the UK and Europe’s launching pad lor new hardware and software, and this fall’s show was no exception.
For a change, Commodore UK representatives were smiling. The company’s marketing has taken a major leap forward recently, with the Amiga 500 aiming for the top of the sales charts by Christmas. Commodore also changed its A2000 marketing strategy selling the machine within "complete solution packages” for such areas as CAD and desktop publishing. The company promised ail sorts of new peripherals, and there were encouraging reports about a working Transputer board.
With machine sales on the upswing, developers at the show made a large, but lighthearted, push for their new games. Rainbird (UK: 01-631-5373, US: 415 322-0900) hopes to make a big Christmas splash with Fish and Corruption. Following the success of its Batman game, Ocean Software (UK: 061-832-
6633) promises a follow-up that is just as corny as the comics and films. Other Ocean releases are Operation Wolf (handled In the US by Taito, 604
984-3344), WEC Le Mans, Typhoon, and Victory Road.
US Gold (UK: 021-356-3388), usually associated with marketing American products in the UK, is also offering arcade games programmed in the UK Out Run (handled in the US by Mindscape, 312 480-7667) and Thunderblade.
Psygnosis (UK: 051-236-8818, US distributor: Computer Software Services, 800 422-4912) lengthened its string of games with a shoot-’em-up called Menace.
Outerspace will be crowded. After landing Starglider II, author Jez San began the Amiga version of Afterburner for Mediagenic (UK: 01-431-1101, US: 415 329-0800). Domark (UK: 01-947-5622) is launching the sequel to Star Wars (handled in the US by Broderbund, 415 492-3200), The Empire Strikes Back. The Return of the Jedi will follow.
Closer to home, Domark presented the 1989 Computer Maniac's Diary. It’s software full of trivia, information, and puzzles, not a pocket diary, but as far as gimmick value goes, it can't be beaten.

MOST OF THE colors on my Okimale 20 printer are good. However, I found a way to make one of them excellent. Plain black usually conies out dark navy blue if
t i
you are using a color ribbon, or light black with white speckles if you are using a black ribbon. Here are two ways to make it as solid and pure as magazine print.
First, if you are printing an all black- and-white picture, just set your preferences graphic select to color, but use a black ribbon. This way it will make three passes of black instead of one yellow, one red, and one blue, which results in navy-blue-black.
Second, if you are printing a color picture. Go ahead and print it with a color ribbon, but mark your spot on the paper. Change all the colors in the color menu (except black, that is) to white, change your preferences settings to black and white, and then go back and print over the picture a second time using a black ribbon. This will make one pass of true black over the navy-blue-black color printing and give you a nice sharp result.

2000 Genlock
WHEN I BOUGHT my Amiga 2000, I was upset to hear that I couldn't use my Genlock 1300 that I had been using for my A1000. After many calls around town, I was happy to find out that a cable could be made to allow me to hook up the 1300 to my 2000, but I couldn’t manage to get a cable or Find the parts to make one myself. After looking at the 2000 and the 1300, I realized that 1 wouldn’t need a special cable. All I had to do was elevate my 2000 about I % inches off the desk, I tried it with a thick book, and voila! It worked like a charm.
I am now setting out to construct a stand that will support my 2000 a hit better, which will be cheaper than any cable or buying a new genlock.

Animation Reference
IF YOU’RE EXPERIMENTING with animation and you don’t know how long to time an action in frames, then you are lost. I found a $ 40 book from England called liming for Animation that is very helpful. Few stores carry it, but you can order it if you are serious enough. The ISBN number is 0*240*50871-8. Copyright 1981, Focal Press Ltd. Library of Congress 80-41303. This book lias everything for timing actions in an animation.

BASIC Search and Replace
AMIGA BASIC HAS one of the best editors around, but it does lack a few features. It would lie nice to have a find function, for instance, for those times when you wish to locale all occurrences of a variable. Well, it turns out that Lhis is not impossible you simply use a different editor that you already own.
Save your BASIC program as an ASCII File by using the ",A” option of the SAVE command. Example:
SAVE “Mvprogram.btx”,A
I add .btx at the end to indicate that the program is in ASCII formal when I later look at a directory listing. This ASCII listing can then be loaded into the ED editor from the CL1. And all of F.D’s functions, including Find and Find with Replace, can be used on it. You can then load the program back into Amiga Basic and run it as normal. No special commands are needed to load the ASCII version. Just treat it as any other BASIC program. When you resave it again, you restore it to its normal (tokeni .etl) form on the disk. Since the Amiga can multitask, you can just drop behind the Amiga Basic window and run ED from there without disturbing Amiga Basic one bit.
For those unfamiliar with ED’s Find option, you simply press the ESC key, then type:
f word
(where “word” is the set of characters you want to locate) and press Return. Using CTRL-G after finding the first instance will find the next, and so on.

8520 Chip Replacement
FOR THOSE EXPERIMENTERS who have blown an 8520 Peripheral Interface Adapter (P1A), the equivalent replacement is the MOS 6520 chip. I've heard rumors of certain dealers charging $ 70 for an 8520. That's a rip-off! The 0520 is available by mail order for about $ 12.50 from Kasara Microsystems, 33 Murray Hill Drive, Spring Valley, NY 10977, 914 362-3131.

Deluxe Photo Lab
A graphics triple threat that lets you put all your baskets in one egg.
By Roger Goode
ANOTHER ADDITION TO Electronic Arts' Deluxe Creativity Series, Deluxe PhotoLab combines paint, image-processing, and graphics-printing programs on one disk. The result is a well-integrated package that will interest artists, photographers, and those who dabble in arcane computer imagery.
The three programs. Paint, Colors, ancl Posters, make up a professional-graphics- applications workbench 011 which the Amiga artist can hammer out almost any problem to his or her satisfaction. While none of these programs offers anything completely new to the crowded Amiga graphics market (although each does have its share of neat little tricks), the intelligence of their design and the conve-
O o
niencc of finding them “all under one roof” should appeal to both professionals and amatuer artist photographers alike.
The first (unofficial) test I give to any new software package is the “Damn the manual.. .pop it in the computer” trial; while not very scientific, it will show you a great deal about a program. PhotoLab passed the test quite nicely. Although 1 was not able to master all the finer points of each program (especially Colors), I found them intuitive enough, or familiar enough from the use of other graphics programs, that I could start using them effectively without referring to the manual.
The manual itself is well written and thorough. It is laid out so that you can read as much as you need to get into the program, and use the rest as reference material, for those with less operational background, the manual is concise and easy to understand. Although I don’t expect to see it made into a movie or a prime-time mini-series, it can be read cover to cover with no permanent side effects. Each program has its own section with a short guided tour through the more important features, followed by a set of tutorials and then a complete reference section that briefly details every function and menu entry.

modes may he interlaced or non-inter-

laced. As you load the program, a requester box asks you to choose a screen format. It also asks you to determine the number of bit planes to be used (limited, of course, by which format you have already chosen) and whether you wish to use a full or three-quarter screen. Provided you have enough memory,

you can open a second screen that sits behind the first. The unusual thing about this is that the two screens may he in different display modes. You can swap the two screens hack and forth and work on both at the same time.

Sparse, its features are comparable to other paint programs. The small, space- saving on-screen palette is backed up by a full ‘1096-color palette on a separate screen that resides behind the active painting screen. T he palette screen features the 16-32 register palette from the toolbox, plus a series of sixteen large squares that make up a permanent display of all 4096 colors and a paint set of four rows with 32 colors each. You can use the paint set to create experimental color spreads and mixtures, and then copy them to the register palette for use in lo res, hi res, and HalfBrite mode pictures. With HAM pictures, colors can be mixed in the paint set and then used directly in the painting. Most of the more familiar palette functions are found here: color spreads, copy color, RGB and 11SV sliders for adjusting colors, and ranges that can he created for use with special gradient fills.
Most of the basic painting tools are represented in the on-screen toolbox display. For the great majority of these, and for many menu items, there are keyboard equivalents which Electronic Arts lias made as logical as possible (p for Palette, u for Undo, and so on). The basic tools are: Dolled freehand. Continuous freehand. Straight line. Curve line, Airbrush, Text, Fill. Filled and Unfilled rectangle, Filled and Unfilled ellipse. Freeform shape, Brush selector, and Magnify Zoom.
All of these tools work in any of the display modes, and many have special functions. T he Curve tool, for example, uses four points to make a curve, rather than the usual three, to allow for an added degree of finesse in creating smooth curved lines. Normally you would have to patch two curves together, to create a flowing “S” for aFrcnch curve, but this tool lets you do it in one operation. Another nice innovation is the use of the Shift key to constrain rectangles and ellipses into squares and circles, respectively. It's not headline stuff, but good smart design. The Oval tool provides the option to either draw the oval from the center out, or to fit a rectangle defined on screen.
There are also a couple of nice touches added to the Custom-Brush menu. One is Resize Draw, which allows you to take any custom brush attached to the mouse and resize it and paint it in one operation (simply by defining a rectangle regular or irregular around the space you want the brush to print). This can he done with a brush of rectangular or irregular shape. Another useful item is Grab Last, which will pick up the last thing drawn to the screen. If you depress the Shift key while selecting Grab Last, you can pick up a brush from under any custom shape last drawn to the screen (for instance, you can pick up a custom brush inside an ellipse).
The paint-mode menu contains a complete array of selections for effects that can he created using the custom brushes or paint tools. These include: Solid, Mix, Low Mix, Average, Blend. Shade, Sub Piet, Scale, Add. Max, Min, Or, Xor, And, Hlf, B&W, and Sub. Some of these are self-exlpanatory, like B&W, which converts any pixel it affects to a grayscale equivalent. Others are more esoteric and reflect some of the more exciting things going on recently in Amiga graphics.
Xor. For instance, will lean colors either toward gray or to their complement on the color wheel. For further enlightenment on these effects, do as the manual says and experiment. One point of interest about Paint, and the other two programs is that each is able to handle picture files that are limited, effectively, onlv by the amount of memory in vour
* j j
computer.
Colors
The dolors segment of PhotoLab an image-processing program that will add a whole new level of control to the images you work on. It is straightforward and easy to use. T he Colors command screen takes up about three-quarters of the screen, allowing you to load and view a picture over the top as you manipulate it. If you need to see more of the picture, you can pull the command screen down or push it behind the picture with one keystroke.
T he top section of the command screen is the color-statistics display. In this area you can see at a glance the exact RGB (Red, Green, Blue), HSV (Hue Saturation Value), or MCY (Magenta. Cyan, Yellow) values of any color in your picture. T he statistics display will also give the Pixel Population count and Percentage of any color on screen. T hat means you can find out exactly how many pixels in the currently-loaded picture arc of a given color, and what percentage of all the pixels in vour picture are using that particular color. Finding the Pixel Population might he the first step in deciding whether a color register can he cleared for other use or eliminated altogether to reduce the number of hit-plancs in a picture.
Beneath the statistics display is the Register Graph, which shows the relative content of a single color component in each of the 16 color registers. For example. If you select red, then each bar (representing one of the color registers) will show how much red is being used for that color register, relative to the other registers. This value can be displayed for each of the color component’s RGB and HSV.
The registers can he locked against changes, sorted out by color component or population, and then altered by degree so that the color content, say, more red or less green, can he adjusted to refine the overall tone of your picture.
This powerful tool will add a new dimension to the quality of your work. I he real beauty of it is how intuitive it becomes after a little practice.
Other Colors functions include Match Palette, which allows you to change the palette of one picture to that of another, while preserving the picture’s original appearance so that parts of each may then be used together. A function called Separate allows you to make color separations of a picture into its red, green, blue, magenta, cyan, yellow, and black components. Make BAY will do just that make a black-and-white image from a full-color picture. Negative will make a reverse, or negative, image of your picture.
If you’re not happv with the results ol any of these changes, you can select Revert to reload your last picture file without having to go through the whole loading procedure.
Probably one of the most valuable functions of Colors is its ability to change the display mode of a picture. With the Set To option you can change pictures from any display mode to any other display mode. Change low resolution to HAM, or change HAM to Extra HalfBrite. You can also select Resize to change the size of any picture to anything you want within your memory limitations. ?

AMIGA PROGRAMS are like rabbits lock a few in a room together for a year, and you will come back to find the room filled to bursting. Since last year’s software buyer’s guide, the program population has doubled. The Games were extremely prolific, practically tripling. The Graphics Video family had plenty of new additions; fonts begat more fonts, and video effects were quite fruitful. A number of editor librarian programs were created from the ribs of synthesizers, while composition programs created a number of riffs. The Music category swelled with new arrivals.
Before a program could be included in the buyer’s guide, we needed a permission slip from its parent company. Our FAX and telephone lines are still vibrating from all the checking, rechecking, and re-rechecking of prices, descriptions, company names, and product names. Despite the exhaustive (exhaustion being our current state) confirmation process, you may find some discrepancies between our listings and your dealer’s shelves. Prices, product names, and release dates are subject to change. Additions to and deletions from the market occur daily. We have tried to ease your frustration by fisting only programs that will be available by the start of 1989. (Watch our new products column, What’s New?, for future releases.) If a company had decided on a release date, but not a price, we fisted NA (Not Available) in the Price column.

Remember your first tune on the kazoo? Or your recital after countless piano lessons? Could they have used some fine tuning?
Welcome to the exciting world of MIDI recording. Now you can blend all kinds of synthesized, sampled and live sounds into one magnificent composition, Beethoven, watch out!
MIDI Magic is a MIDI sequencer, it helps you record, playback, edit, and organize the MIDI data generated by your playing. When you strike a key on the synthesizer, it is recorded, When you turn a dial, it is recorded. When you slide a slider, that’s right it is recorded. Want to change tempo? Add a melody? Switch keys? It’s a breeze.
MIDI Magic provides a basic studio setup without complexity and extra expense. It excels in four areas sound quality, features, Amiga utilization, and user interface.
Uninterrupted Music
To ensure uninterrupted music output, MIDI Magic gives top priority to the music. No matter what you are doing on the screen or with other multitasking applications, your music will always be rock steady.
Impressive Features
One sequencer cannot be all things to all musicians, however, MIDI Magic’s impressive list of features will provide a good, usable MIDI environment. Key features include multichannel simultaneous recording, 480 PPQN resolution, 4-mode quantization,
multiple time signatures, as well as realtime, modular or step modes. You can record any type of MIDI data onto 16 tracks with up to 26 sequences!
Truly Amiga
With color, windows, gadgets and pull-down menus, MIDI Magic looks and feels like an Amiga sequencer. You can use the mouse or keyboard for control. Screen resolution can be
ORDER TODAY
changed from medium to high, on the fly, if you want to show more windows on the same screen. And guess what the HELP key actually brings up help screens for any function!
Outstanding Interface
Most importantly, MIDI Magic’s user interface is outstanding. It works just like a tape recorder, with Play, Record, Pause, Rewind and Fast Forward controls. If you’ve used a tape deck, you can start using MIDI Magic almost immediately. There are lots of extra touches, too. Like the “Don’t Panic” gadget which will kill a stuck note on the MIDI device. Or the memory fuel gauge which will wam you of memory shortage. Then there’s the colorful metronome which moves across the menu bar in time with the beat. Best of all, the Magic Wand mouse pointer bestows upon you creative power!
Take a close look at MIDI Magic. Watch it improve your creative music making. Go ahead, have some fun.

That’s what the press wrote about Express Paint’s initial release. When version 2.0 shipped, it became the only paint program with PostScript and poster-size printing. Now version 3.0, with a whole new set of capabilities, deserves still another look.
Virtually Unlimited
Start with Express Paint’s virtual page. This lets you create a picture of any size and any number of colors, without running out of chip memory. Want to work on several pictures at the same time? Need some spare screens? Cut and paste from one picture to another? No problem.
Then look at the undo feature. While some programs let you undo your very last change, Express Paint lets you undo any number of changes. Experimentation gets a lot easier, doesn’t it? Express Paint can also redo what you’ve undone. In other words, you can undo many steps, make a few adjustments, and then step forward

rich collection of special-effects tools. First there is the 3-D perspective which transforms any 2-D brush into a 3-D creation. Then there are tinting and gradient fill tools. Since Express Paint lets you use many brushes in memory at the same time, you now can rotate, distort, stretch, mirror and fill them with text.
Speaking of text; no other paint program offers as much control. Express Paint lets you import text and place it anywhere inside images or around irregular objects. Fontstyies, size, justification, margins and line spacing can all be adjusted.
This version of Express Paint has so many features, you owe it to yourself to give it a look. For a limited time, PAR Software will also include a FREE Clip Art Disk ($ 29.95 value) containing hundreds of color images.

HardFrame 2000 8-UP! The Eight Megabyte
The Super-speed, DMA, SCSI Hard Memory Card with Amiga-specific
Disk Interface with 1.3 Autobooting DRAM Controller Logic
How fast is fast? HardFrame 2000 transfers data at Amiga bus speeds! It's actually faster than the hard disk mechanism itself! And even more important in the Amiga's multitasking environment, HardFrame 2000 has extremely efficient DMA circuitry to get on and off the bus in almost no time at all: 280ns to get on; 200ns to get off. HardFrame 2000 autoboots under AmigaDOS™ 1.3 and is fully compatible with the new Fast File System. The core of any DMA SCSI interface is its SCSI protocol chip and DMA chip. MicroBotics has chosen the new, high performance Adaptec AIC-6250 SCSI chip, capable of up to 5 megabytes per second raw transfer speed, and the Signetics 68430 DMA chip running at 12.5 megahertz. Then we added additional FIFO buffering and enabled 16-bit wide data transfers for maximum throughput. The sophisticated design of HardFrame 2000 provides for automatic SCSI arbitration, selection and reselection. The hardware supports either synchronous or asynchronous data transfer. HardFrame 2000 can function as either the SCSI bus initiator or the target and can reside in a multiple master environment. Physically, HardFrame 2000 is optimally flexible: the compact, half-size card comes attached to a full length, plated aluminum frame. The frame has mounting holes positioned to accept standard, 3.5" SCSI hard disk units such as those manufactured by MiniScribe, Seagate, Rodime, and others (hard disk mechanisms must be supplied by the user or his dealer as a separate purchase item). Alternatively, you can cable-connect to a SCSI drive mounted in your Amiga's disk bay or in an external chassis. As many as seven hard disks may be connected to a single HardFrame. There is no size limit on each disk. HardFrame 2000 includes a 50-pin SCSI cable and header connectors for either 50-pin or 25-pin cable connection. Also included is a current tap to power frame-mounted drives directly from the slot itself. HardFrame 2000 comes complete with
driver, installation, and diagnostic software. Available September 1988. Suggested list price, S329 (hard disk not included).
All the memory space you and your Amiga 2000 need -in a modern, highly integrated FastRAM
expansion board. In 8-UP!, MicroBotics went all the way to provide you with a truly Amiga-specific memory design to meet the special demands of the Amiga's high speed multitasking environment: The heart of any memory expansion is its DRAM controller circuitry. Rather than compromising with off-the-shelf parts, MicroBotics developed its own, custom controller design and built it into high-speed, Programmable Macro Logic chips (Signetics PLHS501). These new, super chips (each 8-UP! Uses two PML's) permit MicroBotics to employ sparse refresh technology to assure that your 8-UP! Is a truly zero wait-state minimal-refresh- eollision memory design. If you're putting eight megabytes in only one slot, that means that you probably have plans for your other A2000 slots. 8-UP! Gives you new freedom to do that planning since, unlike other ram peripherals, it is an extremely low- power memory card- a single, hilly-loaded, 8-megabyte 8-UP! Draws an astoundingly efficient 800 milliamps! That's less than tivo-fifths of the power "budget" for a single slot! Low power draw also means that the card is cool-running for reliability and long life (not to mention a cooler Amiga!). 8-UP! Offers you maximum flexibility in memory configuration: it is organized into two separate PIC's (Amiga-speak for autoconfiguring peripherals). Each 8-UP! PIC consists of four SIMM module sockets; these sockets accept either 256k-byte or 1 megabyte SIMM's (Single Inline Memory Modules). You can also purchase optional PopSIMM boards from MicroBotics; fill them with conventional RAM ; then use PopSIMM's to fill your 8-UP! The card can run with as little as 512k of memory or as much as eight megs -with many intermediate configurations possible (particularly the six megabyte configuration, most desirable for use with a BridgeCard™). 8-UP! Is speedy, efficient, custom memory technology for your Amiga
2000 and it S available now! 8-UP! Suggested list price is 5199 (0k installed). Optional PopSIMM's are S49.95 per pair.
The HardFrame 2000 pholo shows the product with a MiniScribe 20 megabyte hard disk installed. Hard disks are not included in the purchase price of HardFrame. Note that if placed in the first slot. HardFrame uses only one slot.
The 8-UP! Photo shows the card half populated with conventional SIMM modules and half with MicroBotics PopSIMM’s. PopSIMM's (without DRAM installed) are available as separate purchase items.

Tiger captured in 10 seconds from a playing VCR. Tiger captured in I 30th of a second from a playing VCR.
When you need to transfer images from a VCR to your Amiga, we have an edge over the competition.
Our on-board memory and flash converter let you capture pictures from a playing VCR while the competition, featured above, uses “slow scan” methods that just don’t work with most VCRs.
If you want to digitize color pictures, Perfect Vision has the tools you need. With Perfect Vision and a camera, color pictures are captured using traditional color filters.

Also available for Perfect Vision is our Color Splitter, which allows you to capture color images from a VCR, camcorder or any other NTSC color video source without having to use color filters.
Perfect Vision creates IFF pictures that work with most Amiga video, paint and desktop publishing programs.
Perfect Vision is backed by full technical support and a one-year limited warranty on all parts and labor.

DATABASE-PROGRAM MING
LEARNING FROM A “PRO”
With Superbase Professional’s powerful DML, you can still retain your amateur status in BASIC while learning to run, jump, and throw like a pro when it comes to sophisticated database programming. Here’s a simple tutorial to help get you over the first hurdle.
By Bill Catchings and Mark L. Van Name
To make use of Precision Incorporated's sophisticated data-management system, Superbase Professional, you need not do any programming at all. Many of its powerful features and numerous options are available to you straight off the shelf. Su- perbase does, however, contain its own BASIC- clerived programming language, DML (Data Management Language). With some rudimentary knowledge of BASIC, you can use the DML to tailor customized database applications to your own special business or personal needs.
To introduce you to Superbase programming, we have devised a simple "telephone contact” application through which we can take you on a quick guided tour of Superbase’s DML. We assume that you are familiar with the Amiga, a little bit of BASIC, and the basics of using Superbase Professional forms and reports. If you have never used Super- base, run through its tutorial lessons on forms and reports they won’t take long, and you need only the fundamentals to run our application. We won’t show you anywhere near the full power of the DML, but we will cover all the bases in each major area. (For a feature-length review of Superbase Professional, see "Big League Pro,” p. 56, in the June ‘88 issue of Amiga World.)
Our application is a very simple contact system that allows you to maintain information about telephone conversations. You can keep a little information (first and last name, one address line, and one telephone number) about each person, as well as some brief notation (date, time, and a comment) about each phone conversation. We provide only the skeleton of a full contact application, but you can use that skeleton as a base for your own, improved version.
Into the Starting Blocks
To test this application, select Edit from Super- base’s Program menu and type in the listing that accompanies this article (see Listing 1). When you are done, choose Save from the Program menu and save it in a file with a name such as "Contacts.” Do not add the Superbase program extension (.sbp); that will be done automatically. Then choose Run from the Program menu.
The application has two menus: Contacts and Calls. The Contacts menu lets you enter information about a person, edit that information, list all of the information about all of the contacts, and exit. The Calls menu lets you enter information about a new call with a person (who need not al- ?

ready be in the database), list all of the calls for a person, and list all of the calls in the database. To get the feel of the application, enter several names and calls, and try each of the menu choices.
Superbase, like most interactive application builders, is designed around a few basic application-building tools: database definition, menus, data-entry and update forms, reports, and miscellaneous functions, such as calculations and batch file updates. You can use all of these tools from the I)ML.
Superbase also contains a powerful form builder, but for the sake of simplicity and space we use only Superbase’s default forms.
The core of any application should be the database design. Our contact application lends itself well to two separate files, which Superbase calls databases. In one (Names) we keep information about people, while in the other (Calls) we record the phone calls. We connect the information in these two files relational!)', with a matching field in each. We use Superbase’s serial number function, SLR, to store with each Names record its serial, or record, number. When we enter a call to a person, we store that person’s serial number in the Calls record.
Before we walk through the code, we will need to examine a few DML basics, DML is a derivative of BASIC, to which the developers have added many database- and application-definition functions. Because we are assuming some knowledge of BASIC on the reader’s part, we will avoid the parts of the DML that come straight from BASIC and concentrate on the new functions.
Yet, even the most experienced BASIC user should be careful: DML is not completely compatible with BASIC. As old-time BASIC programmers, we initially felt right Lit home, but we stumbled quickly. For example, PRINT does not print to the screen it sends output to the printer. To display
information on the screen, you instead use
*
DISPLAY string>
You can also send your output to Superbase’s “current output device” by using
? string>
Any PRINT command makes all subsequent i functions send their output to the printer, while a DISPLAY command sends their results to the screen. The ? Function is a handy way to display reports, because it allows you to see them on the screen during development and to later switch them easily to the primer. You should use DISPLAY with messages so that they will always appear on the screen.
Building on a Solid Foundation
Let's dig into the code. We use many small subroutines, so the easiest way to understand the code is
to walk through its highest level and then spiral down into the details.
We begin by displaying a start message. We also use the SKT function to force our forms into Su- perbase’s RECORD VIEW format, which is both the default and the easiest to use to edit records. Because it is the default format, this step at first may seem unnecessary. If you run other Superbase forms before you start this application, however, the default would be whatever format you last used. For instance, if you last used a form in its FORM view, our forms would also appear in that format if you did not first use the SET function.
We then open our two files with the OPEN FILE command. Before doing so, however, we use ON ERROR to set an error-handling routine nonames and nocalls, respectively, nonames tells you that the Names file does not exist and asks if you want to create it. If you do, it calls the initnames subroutine to create that file. If you do not want to create the file, nonames stops the application, nocalls functions similarly for the Calls file, but it uses initcalls to create that file.
Before we get into the file-creation subroutines, we should mention a few other important points about programming with Superbase. First, we could not find a list of error numbers anywhere. You can get this list, however, by using the short sample program on page 5-50 of the Forms Editor and Programming Language manual. We recommend that you run that program and save the list.
Second, both of the above subroutines use an important DML function: REQUEST. This function displays an AmigaDOS requester. Its parameters ?
DISPLAY NEWLINE "Starting Contacts application."
SET RECORD
REM Open the contact names file, which Superbase calls a database.
REM IF that file does NOT exist, we get an error and go to nonames. REM That subroutine prompts the user and creates a new database file. REM The second ON ERROR statement clears the error handler.
ON ERROR GOTO nonames OPEN FILE "Names"
ON ERROR
REM Duplicate the same procedure for the file of calls REM (the CALL database).
ON ERROR GOTO nocalls OPEN FILE "Calls'*
ON ERROR
REM Create a menu for the names portion of the application.
REM Call it the "Contacts" menu.

are two lines of dialog and a type, and three options: a return code, a string variable that can contain a response, and the length of the string box.
In these two routines we use ans% as the return code variable. It is 1 if you click on OK. 0 if you click CANCEL.
The type field lets you choose from Superbase’s 19 different types of requesters. Only the first five of these really matter for most applications. Type 1, which we use in these two routines, offers OK or CANCEL, while type 0 offers only OK. Types 2 and S are like 0 and 1, respectively, except that they time out after two seconds. Type 4, which we use in the get name subroutine, lets you input a string before you click OK or CANCEL (in getname that response goes into the variable name$ ).
Finally, both of these routines slop the program by calling the same termination routine, exit, which displays a termination message, closes all of the open files, and then clears the screen so that you can start on your next task with a clean screen.
Back to the flle-creation routines. Both ini (names and initcalls follow the standard steps for creating a Superbase database file, initnames first displays a flle-creation message, and then CREATES an empty file called Names. We define each of that file’s fields with the ADD command. When we are done with the field definition, we use MAKE to save our work, and then we return.
The ADD command offers many options. Its first major part is the actual field definition, a quoted string with several components separated by semicolons. The f irst component is the field’s name, flie second is a list of attributes, the most important of which is its data type. Most of the fields in this application are simple text fields (TXT), although some are dale (DAT), time (TIM), and number (NUM). You can add other attributes as well, including whether a field is required (REQ), the basis of an index (IDX), a constant (CON), and readonly required (RDQ). (Superbase offers several other attributes as well.)
You then give further information about the field’s format. For strings this is simply the length. For numeric fields, such as our Link fields, you can give a mask, or pattern. We use 9999 for our Link fields, which makes them integers of up to four digits. You can also give a layout pattern for date and time fields, as we did for Call Date and CallTime. The final attributes in this section are the row and column at which the field will appear when you use Superbase’s Form view on those records.
The second major ADD parameter is an optional formula string. The formula string lets you control the value of a field. We use it for the Link, CallDate, and CallTime fields. We use the TODAY and NOW functions to fill in automatically the CallDate and CallTime fields with the current date and time. We also make them both read-only and constants. This combination of attributes lets us fill them in auto- ?
REM Make it the first menu and give it a choice to exit the REM whole application, as well as choices to work on records REM in the file of names. Note the space padding after the REM shorter choices to make the menu look neat.

REM This is the main loop where we wait for the user REM to ask us to do something. We activate our menus REM and then loop until we see that the user selected REM one of the menus.
REM We call the appropriate subroutine to handle the REM menu that the user selected.
Mainloop:

REM The contmenu subroutine handles the choice on the Contacts menu REM that the user selected.
REM The order in which the routines appear in the GOSUB statement REM must match the numbers of their corresponding choices in the REM in the original MENU command.
Contmenu:
ON itemnum% GOSUB listnames,entname,editname,exit RETURN
REM The callmenu subroutine similarly handles the call menu, callmenu:

Matically when we create a new record and then stops anyone from changing them later.
The Link field in Lhe Names database is also a read-only constant. We use the SER function on the Names file to get the record number of this record. This is a unique number that we use to link the files. We have to use tildes (-) instead of quotes around the file name because we are already inside quotes.
Choosing the Records to Pursue
Once we have defined the files, we use MENU to define our two menus. These are standard Amiga pull-down menus. We list their choices in order, with choice 0 being the menu’s title. We pad the length of each choice string in the menu to the length of the longest one, so that the menu will appear uniform and attractive.
Then we sit in a main loop and wait for the user to make a choice. When this occurs, MENU ON gets the numbers of the menu and menu choice selected and then turns off the menus. Note that DML menu access differs from the syntax used in Amiga Basic. You need to be careful about this loop, because it is a busy wait that repeats endlessly, not a good idea in a multitasking environment. We use the ON GOSUB statement to call the first subroutine contmenu) if menu 1 is chosen, or the second subroutine (callmenu) if menu 2 is selected. If you choose nothing (a menu value of 0 from MENU ON), ON GOSUB does nothing and we iterate.
Contmenu and callmenu both use ON GOSUB on the number of the user’s choice to call the subroutine to handle that choice.
The entname subroutine demonstrates how simple it is to set up a Superbase data entry. Because we opened two files when we started, we first have to make one (here, Names) the current file with the FILE command. Then we create an empty, or BLANK, record and use the ENTER command to get Superbase’s default form to prompt you to fill in the fields. When you exit that form, we save the record (STORE) and return.
In editname we change this procedure slightly to let you edit a record. Instead of a blank record, we need to bring up the one that you want to edit. We use th e getname subroutine to ask you which contact person you want. We make that record the current record and then follow the same ENTER STORE process.
Entcall uses still another wrinkle on this basic approach. It also asks you for the name of your contact. That person’s Names record becomes the current Names record. Then we use FILE to switch the current file to Calls, and create a blank Calls record. We fill in its Link field with the value of the Link field from the Names record we just got, thereby linking this new call to the correct person.
Getname is the longest subroutine, and one that ?

ADD "Note;TXT;255;4,10"

REM Then we bring up an empty names record and let the user fill REM it in with SuperBase's built-in forms handler. It will prompt REM the user for the individual fields.

REM The editname subroutine asks the user for the name of someone REM whose names record he wants to enter.

REM If no such person is in our database, we return.
REM Otherwise, we make the calls file the current file, and
REM then bring up an empty calls record. Before we let the
REM user edit that blank record, however, we fill in the correct REM link information and use SuperBase's form handler to get the REM rest of the information.
REM Note that the definition of the Calls file causes Superbase REM to fill in the CallDate and CallTime fields automatically for REM the user.
REM When the user is done, we save the new record and return.

REM If it does exist, we then check to see if it is unique.
REM If it is, we're done.

We use from several places. It has to handle new contacts and contacts with the same last name. We first ask you to enter a last name. We then use the query function, SELECT, to set up a query filler and see if there are any records in the Names file with that name, and then we SELECT the FIRST one that qualifies. We use LIKE rather than = so that the search will ignore case.
If SELECT FIRST returns nothing and leaves us at the end of the file, then no record matched the last name entered. If that happens we call the subroutine notfound, which asks you if you want to create that contact; if so, it calls entname to let you go ahead.
If SELECT FIRST returns one record, we see if there arc any other matches, because two people could have the same last name. If SELECT NEXT leaves us at the end of the file, then there was only one match. We go hack to the first record and return it. If SELECT NEXT yields another matching record, we ask you for a first name. Then we define a query filter with both the first and last name. If nothing matches, we once again call notfouud and give you the chance to create a new record. If there is a match, we return it.
We assume in this procedure that no two records have the same first and last names, an assumption that could he wrong. To make the routine handle that case, add the SELECT NEXT and test logic we used earlier, and then decide how you want to choose from the matching records.
The remaining routines (listnames. Listallcalls, list- call) display reports. We use ? In listallcalls and listen 11 so that you can easily send their outputs to the printer.
We use the @ operator to control the starting column of each field and text piece, and the & operator to give the column's length on the report.
We then use a basic set of building blocks to define the other parts of the reports.
HEADING lets us place text, such as a title or column headings, at the top of each page. UL turns on underlining, while ATTR OFF turns off all special display or print attributes.
The SELECT statement determines both what fields we will print and where they will appear. We again use @ and & to control field placement. SE- LEGT lets vou include fields from several linked files, as we do in listallcalls.
I he WHERE clause lets you enter a query filter to control which records vou want. In listallcalls we
J
print the records with matching Link fields, so that we can list each name with its matching calls. We do not print contacts for whom we have no calls.
In listcall we first call get name and then use WHERE to get only the calls for the single contact name 'and, thereby, the Link value) that you entered.
We use the ORDER command to sort the records we retrieve. We sort primarily on last name and then on first name. We conclude each SELECT ?
SELECT WHERE Lastname LIKE nair.eS SELECT FIRST
IF EOF ("Names") THEN GOSUB notfound:RETURN SELECT NEXT
IF EOF ("Names") THEN SELECT FIRST :RETURN
REQUEST "Give the first name of the contact", "",4,retcode%,fname$ ,20 IF retcode* = 0 THEN RETURN
SELECT WHERE Lastname LIKE name$ AND Firstname LIKE fname$
SELECT FIRST
IF EOF ("Names") THEN GOSUB notfound RETURN
REM The notfound subroutine tells the user that the name he entered REM was not in our names file, and then asks him whether he wants REM to create a new Names record for that name.
REM If he says yes, we call the entname subroutine so that he can REM enter a new name.
Notfound:
REQUEST "The contact " + name$ + " was not found","Create it?",1,retcode
IF retcode% > 0 THEN GOSUB entname
RETURN
REM The listnames subroutine displays a report of all of the records REM in our Names file.
REM We make some of the fields display closer together than the
REM default to make sure that there is enough room across one line to
REM fit all of the information in the record.
REM We sort on the contact's last name ar.d then first name.
Listnames:
SELECT @2&lOFirstname.Names,&15Lastname.Names,Phone.Names,Address.Names ORDER Lastname.Names,Firstname.Names END SELECT RETURN
REM The listallcalls subroutine displays a report of all of the REM calls for every name that the user has called.
REM While in the other report we used the default headings, here REM we define our own header of column titles.
REM The report will display a line for every name that has a call, REM and the first call for that name will also appear on that line. REM All of the remaining calls for that name will appear on REM subsequent lines.
REM We again sort the report by last and first names.
Listallcalls:

ON GRAPHICS

Ail occasional series of tips, techniques anil tricks for creating' more imaginative Amiga graphics.
By Joel Hagen
ONE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN painting with a computer and painting with oils or acrylics is line character. The com- putcr brush draws crisp, consistent lines while die “real" brush and paint create more controllable strokes with a certain random, organic quality. One way to approximate this character in the computer is to use the airbrush as a line tool.
The airbrush tools in most paint packages are similar. Although 1 will use terms specifically relating to DeluxePaint II, it should be easy to translate Dpaint terminology to other paint programs.
The airbrush simulates a paint spray.
'I'he brush you select any one will work) is randomly stamped onto the screen within a given area at a fairly high rate of speed. Although large brushes may he used, the real power lies injudicious use of brushes consisting of a single pixel or a group of individual pixels. When “sprayed" on a screen, these brushes produce the familiar soft areas of color you associate with an airbrush.
By setting the right-hand mouse button to the screen background color, you can use that button as an eraser while the left button lays down a foreground color. By setting the two buttons to different values of the same color, it is easy to produce subtle gradations by alternating buttons while working on an area. I his is an effective way to highlight and shade a form while you are drawing it. Using related colors, such as a blue and a green, for the two buttons allows complex mixing, giving the illusion of more than two colors in an area (1). (Note:
- ACCENT’ LOGO BY CHRIS SPOLLEN
Numbered references in the text refer to corresponding sections of the “Inspector" illustration accompanying this article.) Going into that area again with two new colors can build up an even greater illusion of subtle color changes (2). T his method characterizes pointillism, an offshoot of the French Impressionist school of painting, and is an excellent way to get more apparent colors from a lb- or 32-color palette. This mixing of color pixels is also referred to as dithering and is used by digitizing software to achieve realistic color in digitized images. Studying these images is a good way to learn effective airbrush color mixing.
N
For example, you can use Digi-Vicw to digitize an image with the sharpness control set up between five and 10 (there is also a dithering option in the Color control). Capture the image in 16 or 32 colors and load it into a paint program. Magnify different areas of the image to see how the limited palette can produce the illusion of more colors (3).
Specifically releveut to line character is the airbrush’s adjustable spray pattern. Selecting the too! With the right-hand mouse button causes a circle to appear on the screen. You can make it larger or smaller by dragging the mouse. Most people use a large pattern, perceiving the airbrush as a broad painting tool. In fact, it can be a powerful line tool by reducing its size to a very small circle and selecting the single pixel for a brush.
This makes a line with a rough character, somewhat like charcoal or dry brush (-1). The speed of your stroke effects the density of the line, giving you some physical control over it. Drawing in this mode produces richer textures than the more typical solid-color style of computer art.

Exploring AmigaDOS 1.3*
By Mark L. Van Name and Bill Catchings
Team info.phile concludes its five fart “mini-series” on new and improved commands and features in A migaDOS 13 by exploring RAD: I3’s innovative recoverable-RAM disk. In this final episode you may not leant who really shot J.R. or whether Krystle is actually Alexis9 half sister by the last czar of the Romanov dynasty but you will discover the secrets of “The HAM Dish That Wouldn't Die.”
* Editor's Note: To get the information on version 1.3 to you as quickly as possible, the authors have had to use a “gamma" version of AmigaDOS 1.3. A gamma version is one that Commodore circulates to developers and a feu) other groups so that those groups can see what's coming and help shake out any bugs. It is supposed to he the last unofficial release before the software hits your dealers shelves, although Commodore reportedly has released an “omega" version. Most likely, the final version will have the same new CLI commands as this gamma version, but Commodore still could make some changes he fore it releases the final version. To he safe, when you buy a copy of version 1.3, plan to spend a few minutes verifying that everything works as it is described here.
IN OUR PAST four columns we discussed most of the new features that AmigaDOS 1.3 offers to CLI users. This column finishes our coverage of 1.3 with a look at a particularly useful new addition, a new RAM disk.
A New RAM Disk
Yes, 1.3 includes a driver for a new RAM disk, RAD:. Because AmigaDOS already offered the RAM: RAM disk, this new facility obviously raises several key questions:
First, what was wrong with the old one?
Nothing well, that’s not quite true, as we will discuss in a few paragraphs, but the fact is that RAM: worked reliably for most of us. Fortunately, it’s not gone. You
can still use RAM: just as you did before. You can even have both RAM disks available at once, if you have enough memory to spare.
So, why bother creating a new one?
The answer comes from the Guru we all li ate to see. When your Amiga crashes and the Guru visits, you lose everything in memory at that time including everything in RAM:. This is RAMfs big failing;
even if you can reboot your system with-

out turning it off, the contents of RAM: are history. When you reboot your system you have to reload everything you put there. If you were unlucky enough to be temporarily storing a program’s output there, you will have to run the program all over again. You also lose everything in RAM: any time you manually reboot.
RAD: solves this problem. Unlike RAM:, it is recoverable meaning that its contents survive manual reboots, even if they follow a Guru visit. Several Amiga software and hardware vendors, notably ASDG, have offered recoverable-RAM disks for some time. Now Commodore has followed suit by including one as part of its standard AmigaDOS 1.3 software.
There are two limits on the ability of ?

RAD: to recover data after a reboot.
First, nothing in main memory survives when you turn off your Amiga's power, including the contents of RAD:. If your Amiga crashes badly enough to force you to turn it off so that you can reboot it, RAD: will be lost as surely as RAM:,
Also, the preliminary Commodore documentation warns that it is possible for a crash to trash the contents of RAD:. Theoretically, this can happen even after a crash that lets you manually reboot your system. This problem, however, is likely to be very rare. We could not get it to happen; we induced crashes and man* ttallv rebooted several times, but RAD: survived intact every time. Should you be unlucky enough to encounter one of these rare crashes, don’t give up. You can run DISK DOCTOR on RAD:, just as you can on any disk, and it might be able to recover your f iles.
The fact that you can run DISKDOC- TOR on RAD: is a clue to just how much like a real disk Commodore treats it. RAD: differs greatly from RAM:, both in how you set it up and how AmigaDOS manages it.
Getting RAD: Ready to Roll
You have to go through a little more work to set up RAD: than RAM:.
In part this is because RAM: is so extremely easy to establish. Copy a file to RAM:, and it’s ready to go. It is always exactly as big as it needs to be to hold its current contents, and no bigger. This means that RAM: never consumes more memory than it has to use to hold its current contents. To see its flexible size in action, copy a file to RAM:, run INFO, copy another file to it. And then run INFO again. You will see that the size of each of your real disks is fixed, while their percentage in use varies with what you put on them. Check RAM: and you will see that its size varies, getting bigger after each file you copy to it, but that it is always 100% full.
RAD: behaves very differently. Basically, it acts like any other disk. You give it a size when you set it up. And it stays that size. No matter how much free memory you have, you cannot put a file into RAD: unless RAD: is big enough to hold it. Also, no matter how little you have in RAD:, it always consumes its size in memory. This stable size makes it easier for AmigaDOS to make RAD: recoverable. Fhe cost to you is that you must make sure that you can spare enough memory at all times to hold the full size of RAD:.
To set up RAD: follow the same procedure you would use to set up any new disk that you attached to your Amiga.
First, put an entry for it in the file DEVS MOUNTLIST on your Workbench disk. MOUNTIJST entries can be daunting, so this requirement is not good news for most of us. Fortunately, AmigaDOS 1.3 comes with the following sample RAD: entry in MOUNTIJST:
RAD:Dcviee = ramdrive.device Unit = 0 Flags = I)
Surfaces = 2 BlocksPerTrack = I 1 Reserved = 2 Interleave - 0 LowCyl = 0 ; HighCyl = 21 Buffers = 5 BufMcmType = 1
Because we will discuss MOUNTIJST entries in detail in our next column, let’s skip the explanation of most of these lines for now. You need to understand only a few to control RAD:.
The first line gives the name of the device and the name of the piece of software the handler that manages it. Although Commodore gave it the name RAD:, you could pick your own device name if you wish. We recommend you stick with the given name because standard names make system discussions easier. You must not, however, change the device handler, RAMDRIVE.DEVICE, which is a file in vour Workbench disk’s
j
DEVS directory; you must leave it there if you ever plan to use RAD:.
The other relevant line is:
LowCyl = 0 ; HighCyl = 21
The HighCyl number in this line ultimately controls the size of RAD:. You can calculate that size with the following formula:
size = (block size) X (BlocksPerTrack) x (Surfaces) x (HighCyl - LowCyl + 1)
This formula is basically the one thai
*
you would use to figure the size, or capacity, of any disk. (If you want to know exactly how we got this formula, either consult a hook on disk drives or send us letters demanding that we tell you in a future column.)
This Formula may at first appear to contain a lot of variables, but it really doesn’t. AmigaDOS uses 512-byte blocks consistently, so the block size is a constant. The other variables all come from the MOUNTLIST entry lines of the same names. You should always leave Blocks- Per Track. Surfaces, and LowCyl as they appear in that file, so most of the rest of the equation is also simpler than it looks.
Thus, when we plug the numbers from the standard RAD: MOUNTLIST entry above into this formula, it becomes:
size = (512) X (11) X (2) x (21 -0+1)
= 512x11x2x22
or, 247,808 bytes, which is 242K. (Think of 512 as half of IK, and the formula is even simpler: 0.5 x I I x 2 x 22, or 242.)
Because all of the other numbers in the formula are fixed, HighCyl is the key to your control of the size of RAD:. Change HighCyl and you change RAI):’s size. For example, if you cannot afford the fixed overhead of 242K of RAM tied up for RAD:, try a smaller HighCyl. Set HighCyl to 10 and you get:
size (in KB) = 0.5 x 1 1 x 2 x 10
or. 11 OK.. Experiment with different HighCyl numbers until this formula gives you a RAD: size that makes sense for your Amiga.
Final Preparations
Once you have chosen the size and updated the RAD: MOUN TLIST entry appropriately, you "re almost ready to go. You still must prepare it for AmigaDOS just as you would have to prepare any other disk.
First, mount it with the command:
MOUNT RAD:
This command makes AmigaDOS aware of the existence of RAD: and ready to use it. Next, format RAD: so that it can hold AmigaDOS files. To do so, use the standard FORMAT command, as follows:

FORMAT is fast; you will only have to wait three to five seconds to format the standard 242K RAD;, If you pick a name other than RAD: for your recoverable RAM disk MOUNTLIST entry; you must use that name in place of RAD: in the above two commands. Also, the NAME in the FORMAT command can be anything you want, and the NOICONS keyword is, as in any other FORMAT command, optional.
By the way, it might seem like a good idea to put these commands in your SI STARTUP-SEQUENCF file, but don’t do it. AmigaDOS executes that file every time you boot or reboot your Amiga, and FORMAT destroys the contents of any disk it touches, so you would be forcing AmigaDOS to wipe out RAD: every time you reboot. That would defeat the whole point of using a recoverable RAM disk. We suggest instead that you put these commands in a batch file that you can execute anytime you power up your Amiga. This approach stops the system from ever automatically erasing RAD: for you.
Once you have executed these two commands, you can treat RAD: like any other disk, except that it will run as fast as RAM:. It will also give you the comfort of knowing that a visit from the Guru will not trash its contents.
If you run INFO now, it will show RAD: with the size you picked. This size will not change whether you leave RAD: empty or fill it with files. INFO will also show RAD: as having two blocks used, even if you have not yet copied anything into it. Don’t worry those two blocks should be in use because AmigaDOS uses them to contain some of its standard control information.
In addition to treating RAD: as a very fast disk, you can also use it like a disk in other ways. With the AmigaDOS 1.3 KickStart software you can actually copy your Workbench disk to RAD: and re-
i
boot from it as if it were a Workbench. If you have the memory to spare, this can greatly speed rebooting.
You can also make RAD: a bit faster by formatting it to run under the new AmigaDOS 1.3 Fast File System (FFS). To do so. Add the following line to the RAD: MOUNTLIST entry;
DosType = FFS
If you choose to run RAD: under FFS, however, you cannot reboot from it. To
make your Amiga behave correctly, when you add the above line to the RAD: MOUNTLIST entry you must also add either:
BootPri = - 127
or
Flags = 2
Because RAD: is already so much faster than a floppy or even a hard disk, we prefer to use the old file system with it and be able to reboot from it, rather than going with the slightly faster FFS.
Too Recoverable?
One problem remains with RAD: if you need to get back the memory it is using, what do you do? Commodore initially found that RAD: was so hard to kill that the only way to get rid of it was to turn off your Amiga, a less than ideal solution. Commodore offered an alternative answer to this problem with a late addition to AmigaDOS 1.3: the RFMRAD command.
RFMRAD deletes all of the files in RAD: and gives you back all but about 512 bytes of the memory that RAD: consumed. REMRAD takes no parameters; you just enter:
RFMRAD
and RAD: is gone. Actually, if you run INFO it will show the line:
RAD:Not a DOS disk
RAD: will vanish completely the next time you reboot your system.
The recoverable-RAM disk RAD: and the many AmigaDOS improvements that we discussed in our previous four columns make AmigaDOS 1.3 a “must have" for frequent CLI users. We plan to upgrade to the official release as soon as it is available, and we encourage you to do likewise.
Next time we will examine the Mount- list file and how you can use it to control everything from the RAD: RAM disk to a hard disk for your Amiga. Until then, we wish you fun and good luck as you experiment with AmigaDOS 1.3! ¦

1988 Amiga World Readers’ Choice Awards
DEWEY WINS! No, wait, that’s the wrong headline. But the results are in for the 1988 AmigaWorUi “Readers’ Choice Awards.” Voting was heavy and the campaigns spirited (George and The Duke would be envious). While some inevitable ballot-box stuffing was attempted (it's rumored that nearly half a million entry forms are still floating around somewhere in Cook County; Illinois), we feel that the results are a lair and honest representation of our readers’ opinions on the best and the brightest among Amiga products.
We entered the ratings from each ballot into a staff-written Amiga program (ineligible for an award so it would not skew the results in its favor) that calculated each product’s ratings and the number of votes it received. Products were ranked by their Overall rating from I (the lowest) to 10. Some products that received very high ratings from loyal users were not eligible for an award because the number of ballots they received was far too small to represent a meaningful sample; we apologize for such omissions. The top-rated product in each category received the prestigious Readers’ Choice
Award (with selected bon mots from our readers); the First and Second Runners-Up will receive lovely consolation prizes.
T he seven categories (Creativity, Games. Productivity, 1 lardware. Utilities, Home, Programming) arc broader than strict program types (database, graphics, educational, and so forth). Creativity includes graphics, video, music, and desktop publishing everything you need to bring your imagination to life. Games is packed with fun diversions. Hardware includes memory expanders, hard drives, digitizers, genlocks anything you can attach onto or plug into your Amiga. Home covers educational, home inventory, and personal finance programs. Productivity outlines software to make your business more efficient spreadsheets, databases, word processors, accounting packages, and telecommunications programs. Programming includes languages and utilities that let you write your own applications. Utilities is a catch-all category for useful programs that accomplish a variety of tasks.
Without further aclo. The winners are:

- 4« Flight Simulator's second 3D window view is an extremely valuable flight aid, yet many of you who don't fly a real aircraft may not use it to best advantage. I personally like to set it up as a left-window view almost every time I use Flight Simulator. This is partly because pilots are accustomed to flying a left traffic pattern at non-tower airports (all turns to the left unless otherwise specified) but also because, if you think of yourself as sitting in the left seat, it is your best side view. If you’re used to what a normal field of view looks like, you can “cheat" and set the second window to a wide-angle view to give yourself the most information on what’s off to your left. This can be an invaluable flight cue. Whether you're in an airport traffic pattern or flying cross-country. It can give even more valuable pitch information when performing aerobatics. Coming next month in this column, we ll begin an introduction to aerobatics.
- 41 Wrapping Up Europe - The deadline for entering our "Find Red Square” contest was November 15th, 1988. Current plans call for a mid-December drawing to determine the contest winner. This contest, requiring you to use Right Simulator or Jet to locate Red Square on our new “Western European Tour” Scenery Disk, was as much fun for us as it was for you! Watch for another Scenery Disk promo contest next year.
"Western European Tour" Scenery Disk provides a unique international adventure, encompassing a wide variety of cultures in a rather concentrated area. You can fly from the Tower of London, past the Eiffel Tower to the towering skyscrapers of Munich in a matter of hours with Flight Simulator, or in just 30 minutes with Jet. The disk includes a radio nav-aid chart that lets you plan a complete European flight tour; detailed sectional area charts keep you on course to your specific destinations. Europe's concentrated scenery also provides good navigation cues, making it an ideal challenge for the beginning pilot's navigational skills. If you can hold a general heading you will eventually locate your destination. This disk's combination of scenery details and navigational challenges should appeal to just about everyone.

Posters
PhotoLab’s Paint program includes an option for printing your work, this feature is difficult to understand because PhotoLab also includes the full-featured Posters print program. Having played with Posters, I think I’ve already been
J
spoiled; I don’t want to use any other print program. Posters can prim out any picture file at any size, from one inch by one inch, to ten feet on a side.
Although I have not yet tried printing anything as large as ten feel. I am very impressed with the quality of the printouts I made using a Canon PJ 10N0A printer. The interface for setting up the printouts is simplicity itself. The size of your printer paper will already be set by Preferences (if it is not or if you want to change it you can do so with a few clicks in the appropriate sizing gadgets). The size of the finished printout is represented on a grid by a gray box; von drag the box out across the grid to enlarge it. Or hack u> reduce it. Each square on the grid represents one sheet of printer paper. When you have the approximate size you want, you then fine tune with a couple of up and down gadgets that will increment or decrement it in inches.
A menu item allowing you to turn off the aspect ratio enables you to size your picture to whatever dimensions you like. Without this you would he constrained by the program to the proportions of the original picture. Be warned, however, that turning off the aspect ratio can cause distortion in the finished print as you get farther away from the correct proportions.
All told, 1 really like Deluxe PhotoLab. Although it does not offer any major breakthroughs that I know of there are other paint programs, image processors, and print packages with similar capabilities Deluxe PhotoLab offers them all in one place and, more importantly, in a format that is easy to learn and to use.

EXP-1000
Fill up the inside to make more room.
By C. W. Mann
EASY TO INSTALL, the EXP-1000 from Progressive Peripherals & Soil ware is a dedicated one-megabyte internal mem* ory-expansion board for the Amiga 500.
In a Snap
The EXP-1000 kit contains a well-written installation manual. The illustrated text guides you through the necessary steps of disassembling your A500, installing the hoard, and reassembling the machine. I lie only other tools you will need are long-nose pliers, a chip puller (available from electronics stoics), and a screwdriver. You can use a flat-blade screwdriver, hut a Torx (L-formed) screwdriver (available from Sears) makes disassembling the A500 case a breeze.
The EXP-1000 mounts in the A500*s 68000 CPU socket. With the chip pullers, remove the 68000 chip from its socket on the main board. Plug the EXP-1000 into the CPU’ socket, then plug the CPU back into the built-in socket on the EXP-
1000. Be careful, the 68000 pins are very soft and delicate. 1 completed the project in 30 minutes, but had to bend two upright capacitors to the limits of their leads to properly seat the expansion board.
With Commodore’s A501 internal clock calendar board in place, the EXP- 1000 yielded nearly two megs of memory, double the usual amount. The operating system recognized the extra RAM without hesitation. I tested several programs on the expanded machine, and they all ran without a hitch.
Stable Ground
If you plan on moving your Amiga any distance, you’ll want to remove the EXP board. About eight inches long, the EXP- 1000 connects to the 68000 socket on one end, while I lie other end is supported by a rubber foot. The board’s short, thin interface pins are all that hold it in place. The consequences of the EXP-1000 breaking loose during ship-
EXP-1000 fits comfortably in the A500.
Ping conlcl be disastrous. A firmer anchoring systen
O
improvement.
Chorine system would be a welcome

The EXP-1000 is no small investment. Unpopulated (without memory chips), the board costs $ 299.95. At this writing, the 32 memory chips needed for a megabyte cost from $ 1 1 to $ 13 each, bringing the total price into the $ 651.95 to $ 715.95 range. Progressive sells the populated hoard for S549.95. Watch the chip market carefully before you decide how to purchase your memory. No matter which configuration you choose, the EXP-1000 is a top-notch product.

X-Specs 3D
The future of computer displays? By Louis R. Wallace
X-SPECS 3D look as if they would be more at home on a Star Trek set than in your computer room. Using stereo-vision techniques, these exotic-looking gogglelike glasses let you sec Amiga images in three dimensions.
Stereo vision combines two different images into one picture. A child’s ViewMaster toy and old-fashioned stereop- ticons both use the stereo-vision technique, Each employ slides with two different versions of the same picture; when you took through the viewing len
ses. Your brain combines the two pictures into one realistic 3-D image.
Because separate Amiga monitors for each eye would he bulky and expensive, X-Specs divides your eyes instead of multiplying the screens. The glasses plug into the joystick port and use a liquid crystal display (LCD) to allow only one eve at a time to receive information. When the electric current supplied to the crystal is varied, the LCD crystal changes from clear to black. X-Specs' companion software sends a current to black out one LCD, and shows the first version of an image to the eye with the clear LCD. Then the software sends a new current to the crystals so that the opposite eye can see, and shows it a slightly different image. The changes happen so quickly 60 times a second that your eyes are unaware of the process and are fooled into combining the two images into one 3-D picture.
The process works well on X-Specs sample 3-D scenes, producing pictures that seem to have real depth. Some parts of the pictures appear to he deep inside the screen, while others look as if they are protruding eight inches out of the screen.
The X-Specs disk also includes a molecular viewer and a set of 3-D molecules. While a viewer program is simple, the stereo-molecular models are visually
J
impressive as they rotate in and out of the screen.
Mashed Potatoes
The wackiest piece of sof tware is Space* Spuds, a 3-D arcade shoot-'em-up. You must shoot all the potatoes that are floating in space, without smashing into them as you move. While spuds will explode with one shot, flying cakes and potato chips blow up only after several zaps. Watch out for the sun, which shoots green halls at your ship; get hit and you are snuffed out. While not an award-winning game in itself, the combination of the action and SpaceS puds’ intense 3-D imagery is sufficiently novel to hold your interest for a while.
The documentation (one double-sided page) very briefly discusses the X-Spec glasses and software. Information about creating your own 3-D stereo images is sketchy at best. While it describes a method of using the supplied picture ?

As a gadget lover, I was fascinated by X-Specs, until 1 grew tired of looking at the few supplied pictures and demos.
The documentation does stress that other software will support the glasses, although little is available currently. 1 hope that future software releases will have information for programmers. Until then, while X*Specs 3-D is a very interesting gadget, it is too expensive for what little you can do with it.

WordPerfect Library
A five-piece set of desktop-utility programs xoith a designer label to top off your WordPerfect collection.
By Denny Atkin
LIKE CLOTHING DESIGNERS Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, WordPerfect is a trend setter when it comes to word processing. And like its counterparts in fashion, WordPerfect is beginning to spin off a whole line of accessories to complement the basic “threads." Think of WordPerfect Library a set of desktop utilities as the perfect ensemble of shirt, tie, cuff links, and cologne to go with the $ 500 sport coat.
WordPerfect Corporation bills WordPerfect Library as the key to getting organized. It consists of five programs; Calculator, Calendar, File Manager, Notebook, and Program Editor (P-Edit).
The question is: Do you really need all the extras? The Amiga system software already includes an editor, calculator, and notepad. Powerful editors, calendar programs, calculators, and directory utilities are available through shareware and the public domain. Can WordPerfect's advertising claim that “at $ 129, you can’t find a better value” be justified?
If you have used WordPerfect on die Amiga, learning to use the Library programs should be easy. While Library takes full advantage of the Intuition user interface, commands are also available through use of the function keys. Where possible, the same key combinations are used for functions that overlap between programs. Complete function lists are available through the Help key in the P- Edit, Notebook, and Calendar programs.
The programs arc well integrated.
While the clipboard is not used to cut and paste between applications, the programs douse compatible file formats. Calendar. Notebook, and ProgramEditor flics can all be read by WordPerfect. Additionally, the package includes the Print program from the WordPerfect word processor, an independent task that allows spooling of multiple Hies for background printing.
Notebook
Although billed as a “mini-database." Notebook is a surprisingly capable list manager. Geared primarily toward the creation and organization of WordPerfect merge files, Notebook handles only text fields. While it has no math or sophisticated reporting capabilites. The program is ideal for keeping text-oriented databases, such as mailing lists, phone lists, or recipe lilcs.
You can view a Notebook file in two ways. The initial display is a columnar listing that shows selected fields from each record, with one line devoted to each field. From this display you can search for specific records, choose records for printing and merging with WordPerfect files, and sort and delete records.
The record display appears when you edit or add a new record, presenting individual records in a file-card format. This window can contain labels, instructions, lines and boxes, and of course the data fields. All changes to individual records take place in this window.
With Notebook's powerful search function. Vou can conduct a search on all rcc-
i
ords in a file or marked records only, and vou can search all fields or inclivid- ual fields in each record.
For modem users. Notebook also includes a sophisticated phone-dialing function. Simply mark a field as a phone
field when setting up the database. You can specify up to 26 special dialing strings, such as area codes, long distance services, or dial-out codes within the setup file. These can be applied to specific records or to the entire file, allowing you to dial a special access code only if the phone number is long distance. Calling is then as simple as clicking on a record and selecting Dial.
L. ikc WordPerfect, Notebook has powerful macro capabilities for automating repetitive tasks. Macros can contain keystrokes and menu selections, and can call other macros.
Notebook saves its files directly in WordPerfect merge format, so records can be merged easily with WordPerfect documents. You can mark specific records for saving in a separate merge file.
If you use WordPerfect for mail merge operations. Notebook is a must.
Program Editor
Designed for editing text and program files, P-Edil has sophisticated block commands and macro capabilities similar to those available in WordPerfect. P-Edifs features are geared toward creating structured documents, such as program source code. Along with such standard block functions as cut. Copy, and paste, P-Edit features some useful new commands, including CLONE, a combination of copy and paste, and MOVE, which combines cut and paste into a single function. These functions allow a programmar to easily duplicate or move blocks of code within a program.
Text blocks can be defined using either mouse or keyboard commands. A unique feature of P-Edit is the ability to highlight several pieces of text as blocks simultaneously. This is handy for copying multiple sections of one file to another without having to block and copy each part separately. Like WordPerfect, P-Edit allows you to have up to 62 flies open concurrently.
There are many other programmer- oriented features, including hex edit, which allows editing of non-ASCII characters such as control codes; auto-indent for use with structured languages such as C and Modula-2; and case convert, which allows you to convert blocks of text to all uppercase or lowercase letters.
One major weakness in P-Edit. However, is the lack of a word-wrap option.
If you edit text files for uploading to displayed either by physical name (df'O:, RAM:) or logical name (Workbench 1.6:, c:). You can move through the file display using the scroll bar or cursor keys, or by typing the f irst few letters of the file you are looking for. Typing PRE, for instance, would find Preferences).
Deleting, copying, or moving files and directories is as simple as highlighting the files in question, clicking on the desired operation, and selecting a destination directory. Unlike many directory ?
Bulletin board services, word-wrap is a very useful feature.
File Manager
File Manager allows users to manipulate files without using the CLI, Similar in concept to many public-domain directory-utility programs, File Manager has some unique features that make it stand out for WordPerfect users.
The program displays files sorted by name, date, or size. Device names can be
c
Consider this. Sound Quest Master Editor Librarians are now available for both the PC and the AMIGA
The Master's "Musician Friendly" editor librarians are used to store, retrieve, modify, and create sounds to be used in particular synthesizers. Features include: global editing of combinations of similar parameters, simultaneous editing of multiple synthesizers, Help! Screens for each Master window, ability to generate patch variations or random voices, 3 ways to mix voices, and eight specific bank editing functions. ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN says "These are all intelligent, great looking, feature packed and easy to use editors..."

utilities. File Manager will automatically create the destination directory you specify if it does not already exist.
File Manager allows you to search for a file or group of files by file name or by using a wildcard pattern. You can also mark files created between specific dates, or containing a certain text string.
While File Manager has some unique features, it lacks many of the extras available in other directory utilities. The program’s primary advantage is its capability to print both ASCII text files and formatted WordPerfect files. There is no way to run a file from within the program, and you can copy or delete only one directory at a time. Considering the sophistication of the other programs in the package, I would have expected File Manager to be more powerful than the public-domain and shareware directory utilities.
Calendar
Calendar is a liineorganizer program that allows you to view a monthly calendar for any date, and to add memos, appointments, and to-do lists for specific dates. It also includes a separate alarm program to notify you of impending appointments.
Calendar opens four windows on your Workbench screen: Calendar, Appointments, Memo, and To-Do. The first window displays a graphics-oriented calendar for the currently selected month. The appointment window not only lets you set alarms notifying you of upcoming meetings, but also alerts you if appointments overlap.
Oilier Calendar options allow you to carry To-Do items over to the next day if they arc not marked as completed, and to remove old information and append it to a separate archive file. A Day Count feature will calculate not only all days between two dates, but any combination of days of the week between two dates.
Alarm is a separate 7K program that will pop up and display appointment text a set amount of time before the appointment. If you wish, the program can also speak the appointment text and alert you with a buzz or any IFF-sainpled sound. Alarm also has the option to display the current time in a small title-bar window.
Calculator
The final Library program, Calculator, emulates a scientific, programmer, or financial calculator. Calculator will operate in either algebraic or Reverse Polish Notation (RPN).
The program displays a large window that looks much like a hand-held calculator. The program accepts input either through the keyboard or by clicking on the graphics-oriented “keys."
Calculator has all of the standard operators associated with each calculator type. The most exceptional feature of the program is a 100-register memory that can be saved when you exit the program. The Financial calculator also provides registers for commonly used variables, such as interest rate, profit margin, and present value.
Unfortunately, Calculator is the only program in Library that does not have printing capability. When using the program to calculate a long list of numbers, it would be nice to have a “rolling-tapc" capability so you could check your input.
Like WordPerfect, Library comes with a very complete manual, function-key overlays for the various programs, and transparent keytops for the A1000 keypad. Bound in an attractive three-ring binder with matching sleeve, the documentation is over 600 pages in length. There are learning and reference sections for each program, and comprehensive installation instructions. The Learning sections provide tutorials and practical examples, while the Reference sections contain alphabetized listings and descriptions of each program command.
If you have a problem not covered in the documentation, WordPerfect maintains a toll-free telephone support line.
If you report a bug that has been fixed, you arc entitled to a free upgrade to the latest-release version. Overall, WordPerfect Corporation provides excellent support.
How should we answer the question “('.an you find a better value at SI29?” posed at the beginning of the review? Library’s strongest components are Note*-

book and P-Edit and they deliver on most everything they promise. Much of the functionality of the other programs, however, can be found in public-domain and shareware programs. With many calculators and directory utilities available free from public-domain sources, this part of the package does not represent great value.
Yet, despite a few weak areas, I would still recommend Library to anyone who needs a good program editor or does a lot of mail-merge work in WordPerfect. While the other programs in the package are not outstanding, they are well thought out and easy to use, and WordPerfect Corporation has expressed plans to continue to develop and upgrade the programs in the future.
While $ 129 may not seem an exceptional value at first, WordPerfect products generally sell at a healthy discount, and the street price of the program should be under S100. Considering that works out to less than $ 20 a program, I would rate Library a good value.

Ultra DOS Utilities, Module 1 DiskMaster
Back up and rearrange to your disk’s content.
By C. W. Mann
WITH ULTRA DOS Utililies Module 1 and DiskMaster, you can mass-copy files among mounted Amiga logical devices and volumes, including hard drives and CD-ROMs. Both allow you to preview certain types of files, rename files, create directories, and perform several other standard AmigaDOS functions using the mouse instead of typed commands. Before you start backing up your chock-full 80-meg hard disk, be warned that both uliliiies use a file-by-file system rather tha data compression techniques. They are significantly slower and bulkier than dedicated hard disk backup programs.
Ultra DOS Utilities Module 1
The simpler of the two programs, Ultra DOS closely follows the lead of the popular public-domain program DirUtil, offering graphic display of files and directories, copy, delete, and create functions for files and directories, plus easy transportation up and down the disk or devices’ file tree. Ultra DOS goes a step
further by letting you enter file names with wildcards and mark batches of files for fast copying and deletion. Two directory windows display the contents of both the source and directory disks at the same time. An optional window shows statistics such as file size (in bytes and blocks), creation date, and which protection bits are set. You also can add or edit file comment lines. An adjustable file-copy buffer enables you to shorten disk access time if your system has a little extra memory. For traditional commands, the Exit To DOS gadget sends vou to the CLI.
If you are new to file maintenance operations. Ultra DOS Utilities is an excellent program. Unfortunately, it is unstable in close quarters. Maybe it was an unexpected stack size requirement that prompted the Guru Meditation error when 1 multitasked Ultra DOS Utilities, DiskMaster, and Amiga WordPerfect 4.1.
The manual is written as a beginner's tutorial on the AmigaDOS functions that the program automates. Though thorough and concise, the manual lacks one important feature: the address and telephone number of Free Spirit Software. Don’t lose the box.
Although Ultra DOS Utilities Module 1 claims to be a full-featured hard disk back-up utility, iL is simply a beginner's file and directory manager, like DirUtil. Unlike dedicated hard-disk back-up programs, Ultra DOS makes no visible pro- ?

DiskMaster puts you in control.
Vision for file selection by wildcard or creation date. It saves transferred files in strict AmigaDOS format, rather than using the flle-compression routines of the heavy-duty back-up utilities,
DiskMaster
DiskMaster by Progressive Peripherals and Software is a more polished and refined version of the DirUtil theme. You access the features through two pulldown menus and the central column of selection gadgets. Keyboard equivalents, however, would be a helpful addition. Though a nice command shortcut idea, DiskMastefs six programmable (and saveable) Hot Key gadgets would not work for me. The maximum command siring length, eight characters, is too short to program useful operations.
You can customize the screen in several ways. DiskMaster offers two interlaced and one low-resolution mode for full-screen display, plus a half-screen interlaced display for multitasking. The color palette selector gives you complete screen color control. For text, you can use Topaz-80 or a narrow' 132-column font.

let you bend the program to match your learning curve and taste. You can rename any or all device selection gadgets and use wildcards for selecting files. Although you must supply a copy of ARC! Yourself, DiskMaster lets you automate the file preparation process, a big help for heavy modem users. The program displays IFF graphics and ASCII files and plays digitized sound files at a click of the mouse. The Info Copy feature copies icons automatically along with the actual data file. DiskMastefs smooth-scrolling ASCII-file reader was a delight to use. It displays ASCII and WordPerfect files cleanly, even the control codes.
One deviation from the standard disk- handling theme was unwelcome. Unlike Ultra DOS and the AmigaDOS Format command, DiskMastefs format routine produces a totally blank disk, lacking the standard disk.info file, Trashcan.info file, and Trashcan directory. While this leaves the maximum space on the floppy, I would rather have the standard features on freshly formatted disks.
DiskMastefs documentation, a large reference card, assumes you understand AmigaDOS, but want to use the mouse

GAME SHORTIES
Death Sword
By Lou Wallace
IF VOU LIKE electronic gore, you will be suitably impressed with Death Sword, a one* or two-person battle game featuring a pair of Conan The Barbarian look- alikes.
The object is to rescue a princess kidnapped by the evil Drax. To get to her you must fight a series of warriors, using your sword or body to strike at your opponents. Each one can withstand only so many blows, eventually collapsing and dying. As you defeat each warrior, you proceed to the next-most-difficult of ten different battles, finally encountering Drax himself. If you can heat him you win; if not you die.
Dying is very much the name of the game. This is violent, hand-to-hand combat between two humanoids. They strike deadly blows even chop off each other’s heads.
Controlled by a joystick, Death Sword has over a dozen different fighting and defensive moves. The warriors are large, detailed animations; consequently, with a little practice you can become proficient at the art of fighting like a barbarian.
Brandish your sword and fight to the death.
Digitized sounds make the game more realistic and enjoyable: Swords clang as they strike each other, warriors yell while fighting and cry out when injured. If you chop off a head, it bounces with a disgusting, squishy thud.
Backgrounds for battles include a forest, lava pit, dungeon, or throne room. Battles in one-pi aver mode are always to

the death, while in two-player mode they are restricted to a certain time period. Although the opponent for each successive level has a different style of fighting as well as increasing skill I found that the same fighting technique was effective most of the time. Just keep rolling and knock over your opponent with an occasional well-placed kick or chop thrown in and you should he able to win. On certain levels, however, it does seem easier to behead the enemy than on others (a 5000-point bonus is added to your score each time you cause a head to roll).
One problem I have with Death Sword is that you can too quickly learn to reach the higher levels; this is not the type of game that will hold your interest for a long time.
A different kind of problem for some people may be the graphic realism of the violence. When you behead someone blood spurts as the body collapses, and the triumphant gladiator always gives one last kick to die defeated opponent. Bodies are carried away by a little green ghoul. Parents may decide this is not the kind of game small children should be allowed to plav.
I do have to admit, however, I had fun playing the game. The gladiators are easy to control and the animation is impressive. Death Sword is a good action game: It does what it was designed to do, and it does it well. ($ 24.95, Epyx, 600 Galveston Dr., Redwood City, CA 94063, 415 366-0606, joystick and 512K required.)

Ports of Call
SHIPPING WORK IS is a continuous strategy' session. You must match loads to equipment, and equipment to personnel. Loads change, prices change, accidents occur, and all sorts of uncontrollable events disrupt your strategy. Make it succeed, and the satisfaction is enormous. Fail, and your job maybe even your company is suddenly on the line.
In Ports of Call, you assume the role of a “tramp ship” owner. Tramp ships, the manual explains, compete for freight not handled by vessels registered to the countries involved. With five million dollars, you buy your first rig (or two) and start operations by chartering a load of freight.
Delivery rates depend on competition, freight value, traveling distance, and a sizable random element representing (he world beyond your control. If you deliver the freight safely, you get paid.
Income can be high (you can earn over two million dollars in a single trip), but expenses are high as well. Fueling a ship can cost $ 200,000; repairs and maintenance can cost more than that. Tugs will charge as much as $ 10,000 to help you dock, and the same to tow you out. You must also consider canal charges (Suez costs $ 70,000 one way), and if you mortgage ships or extend your credit, monthly costs will mount. Also, cargo can he stolen, rats and disease can strike, your office can he robbed, and you can collide with reefs or with other ships.
Up to four people can play Ports of Call. Each ship owner has an office, and all can can visit the Ship Broker, where ships are bought and sold, at any time.
The main screen is the World Simulation Display a stunning, flat projection map of the world, on which all ships are displayed. Here, a calendar tracks passing time; the game proceeds in increments of one day. As events take place, the World Simulation gives way to other displays. Each time a ship enters or exits port, the fug screen appears. Once in port, the Port screen appears. Refueling brings up a separate screen, as does repairing, and at sea, mini-arcade games and occasional other displays demand the screen as well. The displays arc graphically excellent, and many have very good sound effects, hut each requires disk access. With four players, the game can become extremely lengthy.
The only other negative is the arcade element. Ports of (kill is so well designed as a shipping simulation that the exercises for steering through reefs, rescuing life rafts, and avoiding collision seem counter productive; they quickly become tedious. If there were a way to toggle the arcade elements on and off, the game would improve significantly. Also, a simple selection menu to control port access, refuelling, and repairing could replace the respective full-screen displays. An otherwise first-rate game, Ports of Call is strategically addictive.

PROGRAMMING AND MATHEMATICS MADE EASY
BY JOHN KEMENY AND TOM KURTZ
The True BASIC Language System
You don’t have to be a programmer to use True BASIC. You can be designing simple programs in no time at all. That’s what BASIC means, and always has meant.
True BASIC is a structured language that’s easy to use. A compiler, editor and debugging tools rolled into one, True BASIC gives you speed, great graphics and power that lets you get the most from your Amiga. Our optional toolkits allow the more knowledgeable programmar unlimited extensions. . .Use the 3-D graphics toolkit to add depth in a picture; Or, the Developer’s Toolkit to launch sprites and bobs, add pull-down menus, and get at all the intuition and Kernal features. Soon you’ll want to build your own external toolkits!
Find out why True BASIC is the BASIC of choice for thousands of students, and developers.
Visit your Amiga dealer or call 1-800-TR-BASIC.

Optional Toolkits $ 69.95 each
Back in 1964, Drs, John G, Kemeny and Thomas K. Kurtz created BASIC, the most popular computer language in die world. Their latest creation is True BASIC, an amazing version of BASIC that is powerful yet easy to use. In addition, Drs. Kemeny and Kurtz pioneered the use of computers in mathematics education, and have received numerous awards for their work. They developed the Kemeny Kurtz Math Series, a full range of stand-alone software applications for high school and college-level mathematics.
The Kemeny Kurtz Math Series
The Kemeny Kurtz Math Series is software that knows mathematics. It’s designed by experienced teachers, class-tested, and used in hundreds of high schools and universities. These best-selling math packages help you organize your thoughts, understand key concepts, step through examples, and solve real problems. You can actually see the steps to the right answers graphically.
The Math Series provides a full range of stand-alone (does not require the True BASIC language) packages lor secondary school and college-level mathematics. Choose from Arithmetic, Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre- Calculus, Trigonometry, Calculus, Discrete Math, Probability, and Statistics. Each package lists for $ 49.95.
Let the Kemeny Kurtz Series lead you to real insight and understanding of mathematics.

WANT TO DESIGN your own peripherals? You need a prototyping card!
The AM-200A Prototyping Board for the Amiga 2000 provides both Zorro-2 and IBM- AT card edge connectors with gold-plated fingers. Also included arc a hole pattern for D-pin connectors and two 13 x 13 pin grid arrays. This board is $ 49.95 from NES,
6805 S.W. 8th Ave., Portland, OR 97219, 503 246-9311.
If you want to build expansion devices but don’t have extensive system knowledge, check out the A2000 Auto-Con- fig Proto Card. Because the Proto Card contains auto-configuration logic, prototypes install into the system automatically. You can determine board characteristics such as the number of wait states, address space up to two megs, free memory pool linkage, and interface buffer direction control for on-board DMA controllers. Patterns for headers and various D shell connectors are included, and the system bus is fully buffered. The complete package is $ 139.95, but you can get the Proto Card without auto-con fig logic for $ 59.95.

Video Direct
CAN YOU GET broadcast- quality video direct from Amiga graphics? Magni Systems answers “Yes!" With their
4004 (NTSC version) and 4005 (PAL) Video Graphics Systems. The Magni 4000 series systems consist of twin Zorro-2 cards. The genlock encoder card combines the usual two-step graphics-conversion process into one; it contains sync and blackburst generators, an input genlock system, a broadcast encoder, and a system clock for graphics. The genlock function lets you synchronize encoded graphics with a reference input. Encoder output is switchable between a number of inodes. The Magni systems include an interface card to pick up Amiga graphics and feed locking signals to the Amiga, The 4004 is $ 1695 for the two-card set; $ 1995 with an optional control box;

SubSystem 500
is a two-slot expansion chassis for the A500 that uses cards designed for the A2000.
An optional 3.5" floppy drive may be added as an “external" drive but is, in fact, more convenient than any drive available for the A500 (including the A500 internal drive). The 100-pin “Zorro II" A2000 expansion cards are less expensive, more uniform in design and more available than pure A500 peripherals. (For example, try to find a DMA controller designed specifically for the A500. How about an A500 Bridgecard?) Rather than take power from the A500 power supply, the Subsystem comes standard with a 54-watt power supply.

OverDrive
is the first "hardcard" design DMA SCSI hard drive controller for the A2000.
Mount a 3.5" SCSI drive to the OverDrive and save your drive bays for other uses...like the Konica 10 megabyte floppy drive. (See below.)
¦ The OverDrive uses a two-channel Motorola 68440 direct memory access chip to guarantee exceptional speed and compatibility with the Amiga’s Motorola 68000 microprocessor.
¦ The OverDrive is autoconfig and compatible with Workbench
1. 3 and 1.4, Fast File System and autobooting.
¦ A total of 7 devices can be added in various internal or external configurations.
With all of the above, you get the easiest to use software on the market. It is completely mouse driven, making the formatting process almost automatic.
Pacific Peripherals offers Seagate 30, 50 and 62 megabyte drives as well as the Konica 10 megabyte floppy. The Konica drive operates as a 75ms hard drive using high density (480 TPI) floppy disks giving you the speed of a hard drive and the unlimited capacity of a floppy drive. Exceptional error correction capabilities make your data safer than it would be on a standard 5Va" disk.

He’s making a listing and checking it twice, so your Amiga is not naughty but nice.
Keyed Up
Q: IN MY AMIGA Basir pro- gram, I want the user to have the choice of using the keyboard or the mouse and menus to control the program. I would prefer to use the function keys, but so far I haven't been able to find out how to do this from Amiga Basic. Is it
J. McGover
Youngstown, OH
A: Assigning special values to the Amiga’s function keys from within Amiga Basic is extremely difficult. You can read them quite easily, however, using the values returned by the keyboard when you press a key. Try this short program:
Loop:
AS = IN KEYS

GOTO Loop
When you run the program and press a key, you will see a number, the ASCII value of the key you pressed. Press the FI through El() keys; you will see the numbers 129 through 138, the ASCII values for the ten function keys. In your program, you can read the keyboard in this way and determine if a function key (or any other key) has been pressed, and react accordingly. If you press CTRE E 1, CTRL* F2 or CTRL-F4 through CTRL- F10, you will get the values 1 and 2 or 4 through 10. CTRL- F3 will give you the same re-

RGB or TV
Q: Is there an interface that allows you to use a composite monitor or TV with an Amiga? If so, is it worth buying or should I just get a “real" monitor?
C. Conyers Mt. Laurel, A!J
A: For $ 49.95, the C-View I. a RGBA-to-composite adapter from C-Ltd 723 E. Skinner, Witchita, KS 0721 1, 316 267-
3807) , hooks your Amiga to a composite monitor and gives you a readable color display. If you have a choice, get the RGB A monitor. You owe yourself the full effect of the Amiga’s graphics. You owe your eves as little strain as possible.
Tick Tock
Q: I am writing an Amiga Basic program, and need to have a clock on the screen showing the current time. I know the TIMES function will print the time, but I want updates every second or two. Is there a ROM Kernel or Intuition routine can call using the LIBRARY command that will work?
T. Shrinshi Parma, OH
A: Save yourself some work and use the ON TIMER(n) GOSUB routine name command, which tells Amiga Basic to jump to a subroutine that will print the time at regular intervals. This is a form of event trapping; Amiga Basic monitors the computer auto
matically for the declared event and performs a designated task at that time. The ?

Crash Course
Q: I understand that some multitasking-related system crashes occur because the Amiga does not protect its memory from being overwritten. I add a 68851 memory management unit (MMU), will it help prevent system crashes?
I have been told that the Amiga's Holdand-Modify (HAM) mode will work in all resolutions, but I have never seen any examples in 640 x 400 mode. Can I get 640 x 400 HAM mode on the current or future video chips?
J. C. Clement Quebec, Canada
A: With multitasking, one common reason for crashes is that some software does not follow the proper rules for using system resources, including RAM. Sometimes this results in more than one program accessing the same area in RAM, corrupting programs or data. A 68851 will do little good. The Amiga’s operating system was not designed for hardware protection of memory, and therefore it will have no direct provisions for using the MMU. Even if Commodore rewrote the operating system to support RAM protection, it would probably slow down the computer to the point that multitasking would work no better on the Amiga than it does on a MS-DOS machine.
The Amiga does not support HAM mode in any of its high rcsolution (640 wide) display modes. HAM will work in Interlaced mode (320x400) as well as higher resolutions that use the overscan (border) areas of the screen. The Amiga design engineers all agree that HAM will not work in high resolution.
The enhanced chip set can address a full megabyte of RAM for graphics and sound and has programmable horizontal and vertical resolutions. The chips also will support larger blitter RAM moves (8x11 bits) than the current chips. The new chips will have a 640x400 non-interlaced (four-color) mode that will require a special 31.5 kHz multiscan monitor.
Pass It Along
Q: According to The Amiga Basic Manual, when you use the WINDOW function (7101 the command syntax) with a parameter of 7 or 8, it returns information about Intuition and Rost ports. What good are these functions to Atttiga Basic programmers?
J. LeFon Quebec, Canada
A: In rudimentary Amiga Basic programming, these functions do not have any use, but they are quite useful if you want to access the functions and commands available through the LIBRARY statement. Many ROM and Intuition routine calls require you to tell them where they can find the structures or information lists that describe the current window or custom screen. The WINDOW( ) function can tell them the address of this information. Without these pointers, many powerful ROM and Intuition routines would be unavailable.
All in One
When instructing the computer to execute Amiga Basic, then load and run a BASIC program, you must enter the command all on one line, not two lines, as shown in "Get Started” (Oct. ’88 Help Key). ¦
