This sounds great, but what if I can’t afford to buy the full A3001 kit now and all I need urgently is a hard disk drive for my A200D? GVP also offers an “a la carte" approach to purchasing the A3001 kit. For example if you are about to purchase a hard disk drive and controller for your A2000, for only a little more you could instead buy the GVP 25Mhz 68030 accelerator board with its built-in AUTOBOOTing hard disk controller and the 40MB hard disk (suggested list price for both is only $ 1495).

U. SA. S3.95 Canada S4.50 UK £2.50 An IDGC I Publication PLUS1 ? Quality Slideshows '1 Made Easy ? Maximize Your Amiga Memory ? Best Software of 1989 ? Reviews, Games & More “Finding the best paint program for your Amiga can be confusing,, but once you have the facts it’s simple. ” “What technical support does NewTek offer?” 3 has one other thing you won't find in any ordinary paint program: help line. If you should have any questions while using Digi-Paint 3, you're not on your own. Call Newtek's technical support team at 1-800-736-7617 Monday through Friday, 8 am -7 pm Central Time. Digi-Paint 3 is available now at your dealer or call or 1-913-354-1146. Digi-Paint 3 works in the Amiga's powerful Hold And Modify (HAM) mode, which allows you to paint using all 4096 colors simultaneously. By comparison, Deluxe Paint III (by Electronic Arts) operates in less sophisticated modes, restricting you to a maximum of only 64 colors. Advanced features available in Digi-Paint 3 including Colorizing, Variable Transparency Shading, Lighten, Darken and Range Painting- are simply not possible in DeluxePaint III due to its 64 color limitation. AMIGAWORLD warns, “Competitors may want to head back to the drawing board, because Digi-Paint 3 is hard to beat!” “What makes Digi-Paint 3 better than other HAM paint programs?” Digi-Paint 3 is the only Amiga paint program written in 100% assembly language. Although challenging to program (taking up to 10 times longer than other computer languages), it’s the only way to achieve the incredible speed found in Digi-Paint 3. AMIGAWORLD calls it “the fastest HAM paint program yet" and AMIGA SENTRY estimates it's, “6-10 times faster” than the nearest contender. Other advanced features found only in Digi-Paint 3 include: antialiased texture mapping, anti-aliased fonts. Arexx support, 1024 x 1024 super bitmaps with auto-scrolling and dithering to 30 bits per pixel (over a billion colors internally, giving you tens of thousands of apparent colors). COMPUTER SHOPPER magazine reports “Digi-Paint 3 is without a doubt the most advanced HAM paint program to date!” “Why is Digi-Paint 3 better than DeluxePaint III™ ?” “But is Digi-Paint 3 easy to use?” I’ve learned that no matter how7 powerful a program is, if it s not friendly it's not worth my time. We designed Digi-Paint 3 with all users in mind-from the beginner just starting out with computers, to the “power user” who demands the most advanced features possible. The spiral-bound manual contains a step-by-step Guided Tour, 11 hands-on tutorials, a color coded reference card, and almost one hundred example photos. Digi-Paint 3’s intuitive user interface was created by Digi-View designer (and NewTek Founder) Tim Jenison and renowned Amiga artist Jim Sachs. It features innovative “Dashboard" controls which AMIGAWORLD regards as “a joy to use” and “very easy to learn and understand”. INFO MAGAZINE says the new interface “iooks great and w7orks logically". “What is the Transfer 24 program included with Digi-Paint 3?” Transfer 24 is a separate program disk included in the Digi-Paint 3 package, allowing you to alter any picture’s brightness, color saturation, contrast, hue and sharpness, almost as easily as adjusting the controls on your television set. Transfer 24 also lets you modify7 the size, palette, and resolution of any picture. These powerful features, known as “Image Pro- ' > cessing”, give you incredible control over your final artwork. You can also save your image in any of the Amiga's 24 resolution modes (up to 768x480) making it compatible with all Amiga graphics software. AX MAGAZINE notes that “Transfer 24 gives you even more options as to the final appearance of your w7ork". AMIGAWORLD declares, “Transfer 24 is great for making overall changes.” Before you buy an A2500 READ THIS FIRST! Christmas Special Fme copy of Tmo Silver 3.0 with purchase ofA500l upgrade kit (or before you even add a bard drive to yourA2000) Upgrade your A2000 to an “A3000 (PLUS 1)” TODAY! With the 25Mhz 68030, A3001 Upgrade Kit from GVP .. What is the A3001 Upgrade Kit from GVP? The £3001 Upgrade Kit includes the following: 25Mhz 68030 accelerator board for the A2000.
• Factory installed 25Mhz 68882 Floating Point Processor.
• 4 or 8MB of 32-bit wide high performance 80ns NIBBLE MODE DRAM.
• Built-in AUTOBOOTing HIGH PERFORMANCE hard disk controller.
• Quantum 40MB or 80MB hard disk drive with an average read access time of 11ms j I9ms on write) and 64KB read-ahead cache. If you already own a hard disk, this item can be optional. What does the A3001 really do for my A2000? The A3001 provides the following, UNBEATABLE and UNMATCHED features:
• The world's fastest (and shipping in volume!) Accelerator board for the Amiga The 68030 CPU includes an on-chip MMU and separate data and instruction caches. According to a recent review in the German “Amiga Magazin," performance is between TWO AND THREE TIMES FASTER THAN THE A2500.
• One of (wc are being modest!) The world's fastest hard disk controllers. Measured with "diskperfl," data transfer rates of well over 700KB sec are achieved. Of course this is not surprising as the hard disk controller is built- in directly on the 32-bit bus of the 68030 accelerator board!
• The up to 8MB of 32-bit wide DRAM is fully DMA-able (can be directly accessed by any DMA device) and is automatically AUTOCONFlGurcd. The A2500 is limited to only 4MB of (slower) 32-bit wide DRAM.
• GVP's unique DRAM design uses state-of- the-art 80ns NIBBLE MODE DRAMs, which allows full support and advantage to be taken of the 68030's BURST mode. In fact during burst mode, this amazing design manages to achieve an average of ZERO WAITSTATES even at 25Mhz! This DRAM design is similar to that used in Steve Jobs' NeXT* machine, although that design (according to the BYTE magazine review) uses more CPU waitstates at 25Mhz!
• 68000 fallback mode allows the 68030 CPU to be disabled, to ensure full compatibility with timing sensitive applications (e.g.: some game programs).
• Sockets are included for 68030 BOOT EPROMs, allowing future flexibility for running other operating systems.
• GVP's unique ASYNCHRONOUS design means that the 68030 has its own dedicated oscillator and runs completely ASYNCRO- NOUS to the rest of the A2000. This means better GENLOCK compatibility (not as sensitive to motherboard clock source) as well as providing the ability to run at any clock speed completely independently of the A2000 motherboard, limited only by the access speed of the DRAMs being used.
• For the REAL, math intensive, number- crunching fanatics there is an optional oscillator socket, allowing the 68882 FPU to be independently clocked at even higher speeds (e.g.: 33Mhz).
• ZERO SLOT SOLUTION! With the fullblown configuration installed (25Mhz 68030 & 68882, 8MB of 32-bit wide RAM and one or two AUTOBOOTing 40MB or 80MB hard disks), the A3001 STILL LEAVES ALL THE A2000 EXPANSION SLOTS FREE FOR FUTURE EXPANSION!

If you can ai all i help it, never go to a computer show that focuses on the IBM PC. Don’t even go near areas where IBM-PC users gather. And. While we’re on the subject, watch out for new users of Apple's Macintosh. Both of these types wear hlancl suits, red ties, and throw around terms like data processing and information management. Listening to them talk about their machines will put you to sleep faster than the Pat Sajak Show. They’re the dull people in what is billed as die most exciting business in America. IBM owners are the worst. Their brains think in terms of rows and columns, and their greatest fear is departing from corporate standards. Macintosh users are pretty much the same, except they feel superior because their machines have the advantage of sluggish black-and-white graphics, and cost big bucks. Many are also sell-satisfied yuppies who drone on about vintage wine, Brie, and spreadsheets. Amiga owners are different. They are cool. They are smart. They have class. It’s simple, really. Macintosh and IBM PC users buy the machines to crunch numbers, store data, or produce documents, You can do all this, and still not have a creative bone in your body, or much of a brain. Amiga owners tend to have fully formed brains that include both logic and creativity. That is why they bought a machine that Apple and IBM dolts still consider to be obscure. Before joining imiga World, I talked to plenty of the PC types. They get all excited about simple little things like new spreadsheet macros and pull-down menus. I also talked to plenty of Macintosh types. They are even more excited about things like task switching and new programs that support color. Whoopdy-doo. 1 managed to survive, and with my health intact, entered the Amiga market. Now 1 talk to Amiga types who deserve to be excited. Their machines are not only fun to use, but are a perfect tool for creative expression. Words can pour out, and blend with graphics, which can be animated and mixed with captured video images. And if you just feel nasty, boot up a game and blow away some punks or blast away aliens in the outer reaches of space. Either way is alright by us. Amiga types also seem to lead more interesting lives. Many are musicians, and we know how wild a life that can be. Others are artists pushing images, lines and color around a screen while PC types push their drab numbers through mazes of rows and columns. And there are video professionals doing a job the majority of Americans would die for; working with stars and creating products seen by millions. Amiga professionals have an entirely different notion of computing. Rather than seeing the limits of their systems, they think in terms of potential. And when they show others what they've done, the common response is, ”1 didn’t think that was possible.” It is, on the Amiga. I've also met people who bought Ami- gas for the home. These are also special people. They realized that the machine can entertain, educate, process words, crunch numbers, all at the same time. Instead of writing letters and playing appallingly slow and ugly MS-DOS games, Amiga home users spice up videos, do low-level animation, compose music, produce wondrous graphic images, and play the most sophisticated computer games ever made. Yes, computers can indeed be fun. All these Amiga owners share one thing: They love their machines. They should, because the Amiga is a nearly pure extension of their creative thought And it’s cheap. Apple and IBM are trying to make their systems appropriate for creative applications. But they are only paying lip service to graphics, multimedia, and animation. Let’s face it. Some things can’t change, and the boredom factor of the Apple and IBM markets is one of them, u Attention: The Ultimate Expansion Tbol Internal Fan Dedicated Power Supply Connector Game Switch (enable disable Autol 0MB, 2MB or 4MB of FAST RAM Expansion SCSI Hard Disk Controller 20MB to 102MB SCSI Hard Disk Drive RAM Configuration Jumpers 86 pin Card Edge Connector luP»boo

Running Xenix I USED TO have two computers in my home one, of course, was the Amiga, and the other was a Compaq 286 XT. The Amiga was for games and all the “neat stuff," and the Compaq was for work. When the A2286D Bridge- board was announced, I hoped that it would allow me to eliminate the Compaq and use the Amiga for work. There was, however, one catch. For work, I had to be able to run Xenix (a port of Unix to the smaller machines). 1 was extremely pleased with the helpful people at Commodore; their customer-support line worked very well. The technical personnel were knowledgeable about Xenix, and assured me that it would run on the A2286D Bridge- board. I was also pleased with the ease of installing, setting up, and using the Bridge- board. The Bridgeboard was a success. I have now totally eliminated the Compaq. 1 have the Amiga 2000 running music, graphics, games, etc., and the Bridgeboard running Xenix. Although the rumors have been flying fast and furious about a Unix port to the Amiga, I was not able to wait for this to happen. With the A2286D Bridgeboard, 1 didn't have to. Hubert E. Samm, Jr. Belleville, IL Taking It Seriously PETER WESSON S response [“Joy of Computing," Repartee, Oct. ’89, p. 8] to a previous letter of mine [“Saturday Night Amiga,” Repartee, June ’89, p. 8] was well-taken; however, if Peter rereads my letter, he won’t find any direct references to Amiga game users. There is, indeed, no single use for a personal computer, but the highly touted Amiga was originally promoted for its ability to produce graphics and animation in a “serious" way. Clearly, you can buy games for the IBM PC, but few consider it to be a “game" machine. My problem is with the general lack of respect that the public has for the Amiga. To many, it’s just another game computer, and this is certainly not the image that people have of the IBM PC or the Macintosh, Mr. Wesson can play Pac- Man on the Amiga to his heart’s content, yet if the Amiga goes the way of the C-64 or Atari ST because of the growing dominance of the game market, then all who are interested in the Amiga for other reasons will suffer the loss. We’ll be saying: “There goes another great American idea. . Mr. Grove Chicago, IL The High Price Of Greed SOFTWARE COMPANIES always say that their prices are high because of piracy. I know, as everyone does, that a lot of pirates are out there, but if by some miracle all piracy stopped, I do not believe that the software companies would bring down their prices. Look at Nintendo (I know this is a bad example): They have little if any piracy to deal with, hut they still charge S45-S60 for a game. 1 believe that if all piracy stopped, prices would stay the same for one simple reason: People are greedy! 1 am not a pirate and do not support piracy, but I wish that these software companies would stop trying to cover up their greed by blaming high prices on pirates.

Circle 112 on Reader Service card. NOTEPAD Compiled by Linda Barrett Building Bridges to Classrooms AS PRESIDENT BUSH and the 50 state governors geared up for the education summit in Charlottesville, VA, Commodore's new Director of Education, Howard Diamond, led a roundtable discussion with school superintendents and other education officials at the Radisson Hotel In Valley Forge, PA site of the September World of Commodore show. At issue was the so-called 'training gap" left by computer companies that World-Class Show the day. Commodore reps from all over were in attendence: Mo* hamed Weston from Kuwait, llarry Thurston front the UK, Pierre Mizzi from Malta, Gregory Koler and Paul Maloney from Switzerland, Mikal Nielsen from Finland, Abdalla S. Al-Zayani from Saudi Arabia, Mike Onay from South Africa, and the ubiquitous Gail Wellington from the home office in West Chester, PA. Commodore's exhibition area was huge. Large color monitors and Amiga 2500s displayed high-tech imagery everywhere you looked. Graphics weren’t the only attraction. Commodore’s slick arcade clicked, snapped, and popped constantly with the sounds of joysticks, while in the music exhibit for MIDI applications, Music- X made its European premiere with full SMPTE implementation. Audio Visual Research showed a 16-bit audio sampler that will push Amiga audio to CD quality. While the show held no surprise products for Americans, the opportunity to discuss the Amiga’s future with the multitude of worldwide representatives was more than worth the trip. Joel Tessler FROM THE PLUSH V.I.P. headquarters to its specially designed viewing theater, Commodore made the September ’89 Personal Computer Show in London a world-class event for the Amiga. As an additional attraction, Commodore's International Distributors Conference paralleled the show. Meeting, greeting, and comparing markets were the order of Commodore intends to restrict its education push to the Amiga, and to approach the market differently than its competitors have. Diamond said that the Amiga will be presented as a creative tool one for developing critical thinking skills, not merely for programming and word processing. Sell high-tech equipment to schools and then neglect to adequately train teachers to use it. "Education is an integral component of our overall corporate strategy,” said Diamond, who previously served as a Higher Education Sales Development Specialist for Apple. "One of our goals is to help reduce the training gap in American schools by working to develop educational software and clrricula with educators, not just for them.” Just months ago, there were only two people In the Amiga education and marketing support department; the plan is to increase the staff to 35 by January. One project this expanded staff will tackle is a support program for third-party education- software developers. Diamond gave no details, however. When the discussion was over and the show floor opened up, developers and retailers displayed and sold their wares while show-goers oohed, ahhed, and wrote out checks. Some attendees gave their feet a rest at classes and seminars, the majority of which centered around the Amiga. While a few class topics complemented the education theme, others focused on animation, desktop publishing, and so on. The show was a tad small this year, but well-attended nonetheless. September's World of Commodore may not have received as much press coverage as Bush’s education summit, but for Amiga watchers, It was just as exciting. BGT IT BEGAN WITH a fictional murder in Saratoga, NY, and it ended with a real earthquake in the Bay Area of California. Rick and Terri Foster, Grand Prize winners of the 1989 Amiga World Mystery Sweepstakes, didn’t think traveling to the October 21 Awards ceremony at AmiExpo in Santa Clara would be any big deal. .After all, the Fosters live only 20 miles down the road in Los Gatos. But when the Great Quake struck less than three days before the start of the show, it turned out to be too long a journey to make. Super Sleuths The media was reporting heavy damage in Los Gatos, and Amiga World had not been able to contact the Fosters before the show. Although a message from them arrived at our hotel before the presentation, we weren’t able to get in touch with them because phone service was out. Come Saturday morning, we found ourselves with one Grand Prize (the Amiga 2000HD) and one Grand Prize presenter (Andy Drexler, President of GO AMIGA! In nearby Redwood City, who had donated it) but no winners. Fortunately, when we finally got through to the Fosters after the show, we discovered they were relatively okay, if a little shaken. With power and water out in their house, they had fled to the safer retreat of Rick’s mother’s home. Although it will be a while before they can power up even their toaster or coffeemaker, much less think about a computer, Rick and Terri do have plans for their new system. With both being involved in Santa Clara computer jobs (he with CMX, a videotape-editing equipment maker, and she with Versatech, a maker of electrostatic plotters), the Fosters are looking forward to using the A2000HD for numerous applications, including software development, video, and music. Dan Sullivan DESPITE AN EARTHQUAKE measuring
7. 0 on the Richter Scale, last October's AmiExpo In Santa Clam went off as planned. Numerous aftershocks hit, though none were large enough to wreak havoc wtth the computers or worry the many native Californians In attendance. The Show Goes On Participation of vendors and the general public was down as expected, but at some points the show was surprisingly brisk. AmlgaWorld, after some serious deliberations, decided to show. We're glad we did, because there were some Impressive announcements. We at Amiga Worid had our awn announcement we’re forming the Amiga Developers Association, an organization for those whose livelihoods depend on the Amiga. The Association will hold Its klckoff meeting March 15 at the Shera- ton-Washington, DC. This group will present a unified voice to Commodore concerning marketing and technical Issues, and will also work to convince the non-Amiga masses to explore this fine machine. ProVector, a structured-drawing program from the new firm Taliesin, was demonstrated, as was Scoti Anthony Studios’ structured-drawing package. Scott Anthony's package uses Adobe's Display PostScript, a fancy display language made famous by Steve Jobs' NEXT machine. Spirit Technology debued an inusual expansion system that allows boards originally designed for IBM PC Xts and Ats to run on A500s aid AlOOOs. This system allows the Amiga to use IBM boards under AmigaDOS, unlike the Amiga 2000 wtth a Bridgebo d, which can only use IBM boards In conjunction with MS-DOS. The C mavens from Lattice Inc. updated Lattice C V. 5.04 and will ship the ipdate free to registered owners. The system includes 50 enhancements, and some known bugs have reportedly been squashed. Never to be outdone, NewTek demonstrated DigiView 4,0, an enhanced version of the popular video digitizer. Among Its numerous new features are "Dynamlc-Res,” a hlgh-resolution 4096- color display mode. With this, the Amiga can have ail 4096 colors In Hl-Res mode, something that had always been thought Impossible. By using advanced internpt programming to change the palette on every scan line, this new mode Is capable of outstanding Imagery, but It does require almost the full power of the Amiga to maintain H. Imtronlcs is showing their 1.8 MB RAM board for the A500. What makes this extra special Is that It Installs In the A501 slot, creating extra address lines in order to maximize RAM capacity. One of the most fun parts of the show was a “KJJter Demo'' contest sponsored by the BADGE User Group, and sip- ported by product donations from numerous vendors. The point of the annual contest Is to create demo software that shows off the Amiga and entertains at the same time. Bradley Schenck won first prize with ‘The Sentinel," an Impressive Cettic-styte piece, assisted by by an Amiga 2000 donated by Commodore. Roger Curran picked ip second place with "The VAUX-KIIIer Demo," assisted by an A2620 donated by GO AMIGA. Sliding into third was “AmigaTrek” by Bill Koester, assisted by a fltekerfbeer donated by McroWay. Doug Barney REVIEWS Caligari PageRender 3D A glimpse into the future. By Gene Brawn CALIGARI AND PAGERENDER 3D each offer tantalizing previews of the future of 3-D modeling software. The near legendary Caligari from Octree Software is now offered as a more affordable, slimmed-down, and debugged version of Octree's original $ 2000 product, Caligari Professional, li is available in both NTSC and PAL formats. The innovative three-dimensional interface remains in this release, but animation and scripting are not included. Although the software now saves 2-1) images as IFF 1LBM (Interleave Bitmap) files, three-dimensional objects are still stored in Octree’s proprietary format. 1 found the non-copy-protected software easy to install on a hard drive and free of fatal bugs. The program did guru, however, when I tried to multitask with my word processor and the Shell. Fast and Smooth Perhaps Caligari's most outstanding feature is its speed: Complicated objects are rendered rapidly on the first display and redrawn almost instantly for subsequent draw commands. Another impressive feature is Caligari’s scrolling, twisting, turning, mouse-controlled interface, which responds at almost real-time speeds and is simple and intuitive to use, even for beginners. I here are no pull-down menus; instead, functions and tools are accessed from stackable rows of buttons arrayed across the bottom of the hi-res screen. .Although this system is unusual, it is extremely functional. Submenus appear above the current row and remain until you turn them off. Likewise, file requesters, color tools, and other items appear as windows in front of the button rows and remain open until you select or cancel them. The work area is available as a true 3-D universe, and in the more conventional top side and front views. A dis- play-onlv mode is also provided. It is the three-dimensional Perspective mode that sets Caligari apart from most other Amiga 3-D modelers. Here, by simply pointing and clicking, you can carry out almost any operation on the selected object. For example, if you want to rotate an object, click on its wireframe representation, select Rotate from the menu, then move the mouse in the direction you want it to rotate. While 3-D modeling programs are typically not fast enough for use in commercial situations, Caligari is. Despite its lack of keyboard equivalents to menu selections, Caligari is almost as fast as that 2-D speedster, Deluxe Paint III (Electronic .Arts). The Design Department You accomplish most of your work in Caligari in just two environments, the Object Design and Scene Design modules. In the Object Design module you can create, edit, and view individual objects. More than 20 basic 3-D shapes (primitives) are available to get you started. From there you can use the editor's tools to pick up an object and move it anvwhere in the coordinate svstem, ro- * late it on any axis, or scale it in any direction. You can also glue or unglue objects at any time. The usual method for controlling these functions is with the mouse, but more precise numerical control is available through the ETC menu selections. Caligari’s well-designed interface allowed me to run the program almost entirely without using the manual except when it came to creating objects from scratch. In the manual, I discovered that the editing tools are in the Extruder module, rather than the other way around as I had expected. To create an object, you must first draw the shape freehand. If it is a simple, enclosed polygon. You can extrude it (as with a cookie cutter) or spin it on an arbitrary axis (as with a lathe). If your shape is more complex, so is your task. Because you have the tools to design only two-dimensional shapes, you have to create all your object’s flat surfaces separately. Then you must go through a tedious process of loading each one into the Perspective view, orienting it properly and, finally gluing the piece in place on the object. I could discover no way to grab and move individual points in an object; if you notice a mistake in a completed object, you must use the extruder editor to completely redraw the part. This is unacceptable. I expected to be able to set lights from within the perspective environment, but was disappointed to learn that settings are strictly numerical, and must be entered through gadgets in a special menu an incredibly inconvenient process. Why Not? Because of its poor object-design environment, Caligari would serve best as a tool for viewing and modifying objects created in other programs. Unfortu- nately, this is impossible because of the program’s proprietary file format. This limitation goes both ways: You cannot export Caligari objects to a ray-tracing program to take advantage of superior rendering capabilities, either. A great interface is only one element of a successful program, and, regrettably, Caligari is unable to provide the rest of the tools necessary to make it truly useful. I cannot recommend it for serious work, but ril keep it around as an example of how I think 3-D interfaces should behave. More Than That PageRender 3D from Mindware is much more comprehensive than Caligari in its range of tools and options. It is script based, and all program functions are accessed either via the mouse or from the CLI style window, which displays and records the text equivalent of each command. One incredibly useful tool lets you reload a saved script and play it step by step. 3D) outline on 3D) hires on 3D) | PageRender 3D’s interface is not as slick as Caligari’s, but it is similar. For example, the bottom quarter of the screen is devoted to the command buttons and the text window. Instead of employing the mouse to control the direction and degree of movement, however, PageRender 3D requires that you select a directional arrow from the control panel and then drag a bar (similar to scrolling in a text editor) to determine the amount or degree of movement. A full range of controls allows you to move your viewing position or to move the object itself. My favorite feature is the animator. Unlike nearly every other 3-D modeler, this is not a separate mode, but part of G0|: it M O LF s Uk y Et‘ UD Di t|* A © Q X y z JL ir A Cl* = } PageRender’s basic design. To animate an object, simply open an IFF ANIM file, and enter the commands to move, rotate, or size the object. The absence of a path command is a major drawback and should be remedied if this aspect of the program is to be fully exploited. Although PageRender 3D does not directly support the playback of AN I MS, the application can run programs through AmigaDOS. Sparta’s ShowANIM player is included with the package for just this purpose. Creation. You can even print a larger- than-screen image in pieces and paste them together to create jDoster-size art. Screen resolutions and sizes range from a lo-res ' * page view to a fully overscanned hi-res screen. The number of colors can range from two to 4096, although Extra_Halfbrite (64 colors) is not supported. A seven-level dithering control lets you produce up to 224 colors in lo-res mode with five bit planes. PageRender 3D’s palette control, on the other hand, is somewhat spartan, making it diflicult to use the palette efficiently. Instead of a requester containing color choices, you get a single box and some RGB slider knobs. Another deficiency is the provision for but a single light source. Although the light’s wattage and type (normal, strong, or weird) are variable, the allowance for only one Big and Broad The introduction to the comprehensive manual declares that PageRender 3D is a broad and general program. It is. Its environment is flexible and the size of your 3-D universe is limited only by your machine’s memory. Full control of the viewing position and a scrolling function allow you to look at any part of your source severely limits the scenic variations possible. Making It Easy As with Caligari, PageReader 3D provides a library of basic objects and an object creator for custom designs. The object-creation module is rather conventional: You draw the design freehand and either extrude or spin it to give it depth. The object editor is another animal, however, unique in its power and simplicity. It lets you move single points to any spot in your universe either visually or by direct entry of the coordinates. You can subdivide faces (polygons) or entire objects into smaller groups of rectangles or triangles, and a number of transformation operations allow you to array, twist, stretch, or wave any group of connected objects. In addition, you can make the group assume the shape of a funnel, dome, arch, cone, crevice or cylinder. Unfortunately, PageRender 3D comes up short in its ability to render the beautiful, complex scenes you have so painstakingly created. Although there is a ray- tracing mode, there is no provision for adding texture or reflectivity to your objects. Couple this with the single light source and you will find yourself limited to some pretty basic renditions. While this may be adequate for Computer .Aided Design, I expected more. I'm surprised that the programmers of this otherwise excellent software chose to limit file output to a proprietary format, especially considering the decision to limit its rendering capabilities. As with Caligari, it would be a boon to be able to export PageRender 3D’s files to Sculpt- Animate 4D (Byte by Byte) or Turbo Silver (Impulse) for high-quality display. Whither 3-D? If manufacturers do not want to create the ultimate, all-in-one 3-D design program, they should at least offer a path to programs that complement their own. Although Syndesis is developing Interchange modules for both programs, I resent the extra cost I must assume in order to do something nearly ever)' other Amiga application does routinely. These two programs illustrate the current trend to real-world perspective displays. Caligari, although not suited for heavy-duty work, incorporates speed and an admirable interface design. (The package includes an instructional videotape as well.) PageRender 3D, on the other hand, shows a high level of innovation and attention to detail. Even the program’s shortcomings seem well considered and, in fact, are mentioned in the documentation as candidates for future upgrades.

Surrounded by heaps of product announcements, we unearthed new companies, tracked elusive distributors with address changes, and investigated rumors of new and innovative programs. We harrangued developers and publishers by phone and post until we assembled the list before you. For a “kinder, gentler buyer’s guide,” we extricated the entertainment group and gave it a name of its own the Games Buyer’s Guide (see the November '89 issue). The remaining applications programs to- talea nearly one-tnousanci 01 its own. Price and availability dis crepancies might appear be tween this list and voui dealer’s. Where prices wen unavailable, we placed a TBA (to be announced) in the price column. The "MEM” column was created to indicate programs requiring more than the standard 5I2K to run and was assembled from available information. Some programs may come with an extra memory recommendation, but may not require more. Questions about products should be directed to the corresponding company a list of Manufacturers’ Addresses is provided at die end of the Guide. Programming ..... .42 Databases ......

FOUR COMPUTER HACKERS ARE ABOUT TO RAID YOUR DISK DRIVE. No computer will go unscathed, as Ultra's version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles storms into your disk drive to duke it out with Shredder a maniac more menacing than an army of mind-altered Bruce Lees. But if they're to survive, you must command the role of each turtle, rumbling through a maze of Mouser" infested sewers, criminally polluted rivers and alleys patrolled by the fanatical Foot Clan? Along the way search for bonus weapons like the Triple Shuriken. You'll have to also think fast, switching turtle identities in order to match their karate skills with those of the enemy. So grabyourjoystick and nunchukus, then control every leap, chop, slice and dice, until you splatter Shredder senseless or get yourself hacked into turtle soup. Now featuring the ULTRA "GAME SAVE" command. PRODUCT COMPANY PRICE MEM DESCRIPTION Business Font Set C Ltd. $ 79.95 Two fonts in various styles.

Before you buy a hard drive, look around. Look closely. Compare speeds, but also look at Interfaces...Software...Value. We think you'll agree that SupraDrives are Simply The Best Amiga Hard Drives. Here's why ... Each SupraDrive for the A500 A2000: Autoboots directly from FFS partition • Interface allows super smooth video, sound, etc., with no rude interruptions for hard drive access • Compatible with Bridgeboard™, RAM, digitizers, other boards • Supports MS-DOS disk partitions with Bridgeboards • Installs easily • Pre-formatted & ready to use ¦ Includes 2 floppy disks of software & clear, thorough manual • Fine tuned assembly language driver software • Blind data transfers improve speed 3x
* Knowledgeable tech support * Interfaces also available separately SUPRADRIVE FOR AMIGA 500 with AMIGA BUS PASS-THROUGH for unlimited expansion • OPTIONAL 2MB RAM SUPRADRIVE HARD CARD FOR AMIGA 2000 with revolutionary new WORDSYNC™ INTERFACE Breakthrough Speed. SupraDrives give you access times as low as 11 ms. and data transfer speeds of over 500K sec. (Amiga® 2000) or 326K sec. (Amiga 500). Features like full support of Workbench™
1. 3, the Fast File System (FFS), and multitasking make these drives FLY. State-of-the-Art Interfaces. Supra's interfaces (included with every SupraDrive) give you innovative features no one else can match. The revolutionary WordSync™ Interface transfers 16 bits at once, which gives A2000 SupraDrives DMA speed without DMA hassle. The A500 interface passes the Amiga bus signal through to your other peripherals; without Amiga bus pass-through, your system is severely limited. And all Supra interfaces feature SCSI ports for easy daisy-chaining. The Best Software. After installing the drive, you'll be glad you have Supra's full array of powerful, easy-to- use software. SupraFormat makes formatting a breeze and lets you use up to 30 partitions and various file systems FFS, MS-DOS®, Unix, Macintosh™, and more! SupraEdit lets you access low-level Amiga system information, and other included programs make using a hard disk fun and easy. Irresistible Value. All this is available at a price you'll love. Look into it! Only Supra Corporation an experienced company with a proven commitment to the Amiga and its potential gives you such an attractive alternative: The SupraDrive.

- - With a little coaching and the right equipment, you can use your Amiga to create a high-quality multi-projector slideshow presentation at reasonable cost for almost any business or professional purpose. By Geoffrey Williams onsider the irony: Although the f Amiga shines as a tool to create top- 1 drawer video and interactive presentations, most businesses still rely on slide-show projectors for their presentations thus wasting many of the benefits of convenience, cost* effectiveness, and quality that this personal-computer solution has to I I offer. Result: If you need to create presentations for your company or professional organization, or provide such a service for others, you’re pretty much compelled to create a traditional slide show. Frustrating? Yes but no reason to throw in the towel and abandon your Amiga. With the right basic knowledge, you can put your Amiga to work to create excellent slide graphics and to help you plan and develop effective slide-show presentations. Multi-Projector Presentations: Sophisticated Power Using a single projector may still be common for small or informal presentations, but shows for larger groups use from three to several dozen projectors, all synchronized by a controller. The same audiotape that contains the musical score and sound track usually has a separate track reserved for audio tones that control each projector to tell it how long to show each image and what type of transition (bang, fade, dissolve) to use. The sequence of events is programmed on a special computer that converts the sequence information into such audio tones. This is a fairly sophisticated process, and although there is a hardware software package to do this on the Amiga available in Germany, as of this writing nothing similar exists in the US. You will usually have to go to a service house (found under “Audio-Visual” in the Yellow Pages) that will do the programming for you for around S50 an hour. They will type the timings and transitions into something very similar to a spreadsheet, and they usually have all the projectors set up so that the show can be tested with the slides (and with music, if you have it). It is well worth your time to look at the way the service bureau’s computer is set up before you begin putting your show together. You may be able to create something very similar in a spreadsheet, which will allow you to make changes and play around with it ? While keeping accurate track of timings. You can then print out the spreadsheet so that the programmer has an accurate and easy-to-follow list. This will save you a lot of money, as simple errors can take a lot of additional programming time to fix. Creating Slides on the Amiga Professional slide services usually create slides with very high resolution, far higher than the Amiga can display. The Amiga can produce excellent slides, but Getting Started Storyboarding Your Show sketches already created. PLANNING IS CRITICAL to the success of a multi-projector slide show, and It is common practice to create a storyboard that shows visually the sequence of events along with text describing the action. This is normally done by hand by an artist, but I have used the Amiga instead. I have my artist prepare roughs of the images we are going to create using DeluxePaint (Electronic Arts, $ 149.95). We also do sketches for the photographs we will shoot on location, again using DeluxePaint or digitizing from I have devised a storyboard template in Professional Page (Gold Disk, $ 395) with boxes for the images and boxes for text directly below them. I then add the text and import my images into the boxes. The printed result provides a very professional-looking storyboard, and because the printed images are much smaller than the originals, “jaggies” are reduced considerably. Changes are easy to make, and it also serves as a visual shooting script. GW you will need to use anti-aliasing, which is the same technique used in video to create an apparently higher resolution than is possible to display on a normal television set. By adding shades of a lighter color around the areas in which jaggies appear, the image will look smoother to the eye. You can anti-alias an image by hand, or use a program that will do it for you. DeluxePaint III will apply anti-aliasing to any brush when you use Perspective mode. Reduce the size of the brush with High Anti-Aliasing turned on in the Perspective mode. You may have to experiment a bit, however, because results can be a little unpredictable. (See Joel Hagen’s “Accent on Graphics” column, p. 42, in the February ’89 issue oi'Ajnigv World, for hints on several other DeluxePaint smoothing techniques.) Another easy technique to decreasejaggies is to outline a brush in different colors. Figure 1 shows two different outlines used to smooth out text. DeluxePaint 111 has an automatic outlining capability. Smooth-looking text is critical, as it is often the most important part of a slide. One of the features of Digi-Paint 3 (NewTek, S99.95) is its ability to automatically anti-alias any font, and as you can see j j from Figure 2 (top), it does a good job. The enlargement to the left shows how the extra colors are added (in this case, two shades of gray). This is currently the only paint program to offer this feature, making it very handy for slide work. Because anti-aliasing does require extra colors, using a HAM (Hold-and- Modify) program to create your slides may give you the best results. You can also obtain anti-aliased text by using a character generator. Ail of the professional versions offer this feature. Figure 2 (bottom) shows how Pro Video Gold (Shereff Systems, $ 299) anti-aliases text using a single, user-adjustable color. You can import IFF backgrounds and save the entire image with text as an IFF file although you can use only the program’s custom fonts in this way. .As of this writing, Broadcast Titler (InnoVision Technology, S299.95) has a similar restriction, although a module to transform any Font into an anti-aliased font the program can use may be available by the time you read this. D i Broadcast Titler cannot save images as IFF files and does not multitask, so it will not work with the Polaroid Palette. 1 would also suggest picking up the entire set of Kara Fonts (Kara Computer Graphics), as they are indispensable to anyone creating slides, and most of them are so well designed they need no anti-aliasing. From Screen Image to Finished Slide The next step in the process is to turning the Amiga image into a slide. The least expensive method is to take a photograph of the screen. Expert Jim Sachs recommends shooting in a darkened room from at least ten feet away. Using a zoom lens will flatten out the picture and reduce monitor curvature. Turn clown the brightness and contrast on the monitor to Out 11no no I or 7VUA OnUitte Ti UA OcdUtte. TOUAotU Octf£jut& Figure 1. Outlining a brush in different colors is one way DeluxePaint can anti-alias Images and text. Reduce glare (very bright colors will glow and bleed in the photograph). The basic camera setting is F- stop 4 and one-quarter second exposure. The real key, however, to getting usable results from this method is to employ a technique called bracketing. Use a range of F-stops and take several shots at each setting. Within each group, vary the shutter speed so that you also get a range of different exposures. You will go through a lot of film, but the odds of obtaining a suitable shot will increase greatly. Service. (A selection of these is contained in the “Slide Services” list accompanying this article.) Hammond Photographic Services, which uses a slightly longer lens to get full-frame slides, provided me with the following tips:
• Use only standard Amiga screen sizes (no overscan).
• Create a border at the top and bottom of the screen of 18 pixels in hi-res and nine pixels in lo-res so that You may find that in certain shots the image will appear brighter in the middle than at the center. This is more likely a result of the way the monitor functions, rather than something lacking in your shooting technique, but following the bracketing procedure will minimize the effects as much as possible, in a similar way, you might also have problems with getting even grays. Up and Running Animation and Special Effects The Polaroid Palette (Polaroid Corp., SI495) has become the standard piece of hardware for making slides from Amiga graphics. Used with the Imprint interface (Liquid Light, $ 495), it provides good output, although there are sometimes visible scanlines and strange dropouts. It also produces softer images, which are better for slides but not always what you want for print use. The more expensive FreezeFrame (SI995) from Polaroid does a better job, completely eliminating scanlines and recording directly from the RGB or NTSC (National Television Standards Committee) signal. It can even lake a picture of a genlocked image. Because it does not require any special software or interface on the Amiga, it can take screen shots from programs that do not allow multitasking. (For a review of the FreezeFrame, sec p. 44 in the June '89 issue of Amiga World.) If vou do not have $ 2000 to invest in vour own > slide-making equipment, you will need to use a slide Anti-aliasing Anti-aliasing s Ant i-ali as iny in D ism Paint 3 on a public donain font Anti-aliasing Anti-aliasing An11 -aI i as inu in Pro Video Gold in tli proaraii font Figure 2. Both Dlgi-Palnt 3 and Pro Video Gold anti-alias text by adding one or more extra colors to smooth out “jaggles.” USING MORE THAN one projector to present your slide show will enable you to add animation and a variety of special effects. Typically, three projectors are used, with each showing one slide while the others are switching to the next image in their slide trays. You will also need a controller often called a Dove to automate the projectors. Achieving a top speed of about two slides per second-depending upon the speed of your controller and the number of projectors you are using you will be able to create some very effective "animated” sequences. You can also have two projectors display an image at the same time, which allows you to create composite images combining photographic and computer-created slides. In a show I did in Los Angeles, the first projector showed a slide of an empty Dodger Stadium, while a second later the slide in projector two slowly faded up with a DeluxePaint image in the shape of a person but with bright orange, white, and yellow colors on a black background. A moment later, projector three slowly faded up with an image of the stadium with a real person standing In the same position as the DeluxePaint outline, as projectors one and two faded out. The result was a very convincing "magical” appearance of a person. With more projectors, we could have made the DeluxePaint image shimmer and twinkle as the person appeared. Instead of going to the expense of having special composite slides made up, if you are using multiple projectors you can project Amiga titling from one projector on top of a slide of people or any other live subject. Make sure that the titling slide has a black background (which is transparent when projected) and that the area on which you want the titling to appear on the other slide is also dark. A little bit of black tape or slide paint can also be used to black out an area of a slide. The key element for any of these effects is careful registration. Mount your slides in pin- registered glass slide mounts. All slides should be mounted in the same type of mounts. The cardboard mounts in which most slides come are so thin that the slides will shift forward or back in the slide trays, throwing them out of registration. The pins in the registered slide mounts ensure that the slides will be positioned accurately. You should also use a pin-registered camera, such as the Ricoh XRM or the Nicon F- 3, to make certain that each slide has the pin slots in the exact same position. GW the screen matches the aspect ratio of the slide. (Anything in these border areas will be cropped off.)
• Leave color 0 black.
• If you are using DeluxePaint, turn off the Stencil feature before saving the image.
• Do not make images and text too small (text should be at least 25 pixels high), and avoid crowding the screen.
• Avoid line widths ol one pixel.
• Keep colors rich and saturated.
• HAM and standard resolutions will reproduce, but do not use Extra_Halfbrite mode.
• Make sure that you paint underneath the title bars and menu strip in DeluxePaint. While most of these tips apply for other services, you may want to contact your local slide service before creating your slides to see if they have any special requirements. Most slide services use the Polaroid Palette system, with the notable exception of Philadelphia Video Lab. They use a proprietary process to produce the best quality slides available. Most of their clients are corporations and magazines, and their service is a hit expensive. They have recently inaugurated a consumer version of their service, however, at a considerably reduced price. Sound Advice: Adding Audio to Your Show You can also use your Amiga to score your slide show and add sound effects. You will need good quality recording equipment with which to tape your audio. Many slide-show controllers relv on the second audio Up and Running Digitizing Your Slides THERE ARE TIMES when you may want to digitize a slide, perhaps to make a composite slide with text overlayed, or to test the animation sequence as described above. An easy way to record a slide with a video camera is to tape the slide over a macro lens and aim the camera at a light source. This will work fine with Digl-View (New- Tek, $ 199.95) when working in black and white. For full-color track to record the tones that sequence the projectors. If this is the case, you are just as well off making a mono, rather than a stereo recording. Digitizing, mount a two-foot square piece of rear projection screen material (which can be purchased by the yard check the sources at the end of the "Slide Services" list) onto a free-standing frame and project an image onto it from the rear. The Digi-View camera records the image from the front of the screen, and you will not have to worry about even lighting.
- GW You can find a lot of digitized sounds on bulletin boards and PD disks, or you can use an audio digitizer such as Perfect Sound (SunRize Industries Micro- Search, S89.95) to record your own. There are many sample editors available to customize your sounds after recording them. We have used Audio Master II (Aegis, S59.95) to modify a car horn to make it sound like a ship’s steam whistle, and we combined thunder and an explosion to get just the right sound of lightning hitting an object and blowing it to pieces. An audio editor also lets you adjust the sound effect so that it runs the exact amount ol time you need. J We use Sonix (Aegis, $ 79,95) for music because of its ability to handle very high-quality digitized samples and to use them as instruments. It also allows us to incorporate sound effects in the score. We record the score directly out of the audio channels onto metal tape with Dolby B and get very good results. Music X (Microlllusions, $ 299,95) will let you control a MIDI synthesizer and play Sonix instruments on the Amiga side. Testing the Sequence Time is money when you go in to have your slide show programmed. The more you know about how you want things to look, the less time you will spend tinkering as the slide sequences are programmed. We use the Amiga to test slide timing and animation sequences before we go in to program. Using any animation package that animates IFF images and lets you set how long each frame is shown, you can create an animation that will look much like the finished projected version. We have used the storyboard graphics (see “Storyboarding Your Show” under Getting Started) to animate the live sequences, but you could also digitize slides in black and white and to get a good idea of what the live sequences will look like. It is a great advantage to be able to see how things will look when they are sequenced, even before you have your slides printed. It is especially important to see how animated sequences look, so that you will know if you need an extra image or two before going in to the studio. You can easily set in advance how long you need a text screen to stay up. You can create the projected overlay effects by using two screens in DeluxePaint and merging the back one with the front. In short, you will save hundreds of dollars in programming costs because you can do experimenting on your own time and not when you are being charged by the hour. It is amazing how fast the costs add up with even small changes. It is at this point that you should also consider whether you want a video recording of the slide show. The easiest way to do this is to make a recording when you have it programmed and tested. Trying tty shoot during an actual performance is chancy.

(617) 720-2038 or (617) 720-2355 may need to make several adjustments in order to get it on tape just the way you want it. You must plan ahead, as slides are fifteen percent wider than a video image. Graphics that go to the edge of the slides will he cut off, so design your slides with seven percent at each edge that can be trimmed without cutting off important information. After all your work is done, the best part is sitting hack and watching the show with an audience. You will also have the satisfaction of knowing that using the Amiga can save you hundreds of dollars on a slide-show presentation. While the Amiga is not the perfect solution for every situation, for most business applications it will give you very good quality at a very low price. ¦ Geoffrey Williams is Executive Producer for Creative Business Communication and head 0} the Amiga Video-Graphics Guild, a nonprofit group that meets monthly to provide information on, and encourage the use of the Amiga as a video and graphics machine.

Since 1981 Low Prices, Large Selection, Fast Service. Memory to the MAX Find out how much is enough and how to make the most of the RAM you have. ORE IS BETTER" says the old axiom, but with the Amiga, memory expansion is not that simple. Like assembly-line workers, the sections of an Amiga’s memory are each best suited Tor different tasks. If you have a labor shortage in the engine department, hiring extra hands for the body shop is no help. II' you need more chip RAM to store graphics and sound, buying several megs of fast RAM is not the answer. Just as a foreman must know the employees’ production capacity to keep the factory running smoothly, you must understand the various types (fast, chip, and slow-fast) of memory and their uses to make your Amiga as efficient as possible. While buying more is one answer, several system and public-domain programs will help you work around a shortage when the budget is tight. Chip Off the Old Processor The Amiga’s multiple processors are in part responsible for the memory segregation. In addition to the computer’s main processor, the Motorola fiSOOO, the Amiga has a number of coprocessors that control graphics, sound, and disk I O, among other things. These coprocessors can directly access a portion of the Amiga’s memory and can change its contents without the intervention of the main processor. Because the coprocessors are integrated into large custom computer chips (called Agnus, Denise, and Paula), the portion of memory that they can use as their work space is called chip memory, or chip RAM. The initial 512K of the Amiga 500 and A2000, plus the AlOOO’s 256K and 256K upgrade, are all chip RAM, accessible to the main processor or the coprocessors. When you add a memory-expansion module to the A500’s or the AlOOO’s external bus, or plug a memory board into one of the A2000’s expansion slots, you are adding another type of memory called fast RAM, or fast memory. Unlike chip RAM, fast RAM can be accessed only by the main processor, not by the coprocessors for graphics and sound storage. The main advantage of fast memory is that it does not have to be shared among the processors like chip memory does. When the custom chips and the main processor both want to use chip RAM, they have to take turns accessing it, most of the time without a wait. When there is a lot of graphics activity, the graphics chips may access chip memory so frequently that they delay the main processor’s access to chip memory, slowing down program execution. With fast memory in the system, however, the main processor may access program instructions from that memory while the graphics chips are using chip RAM. Fast RAM does have some disadvantages. Because it is not an integral part of the computer's memory architecture, expansion RAM boards require auto- configuration circuitry to tell the computer how much memory is on the board and to let the Amiga add that memory to the system resources automatically. Memory-board prices reflect this added developers’ cost. Although fast RAM does not have multiple processors competing to access it, it cannot hold graphics display or sound information. Even with eight megabytes of fast RAM, you may not be able to multitask a graphics-intensive program, such as Professional Page (Gold Disk) or DeluxePaint III (Electronic .Ai ts), because you still have only 512K of chip RAM available. Dormant Help When the Amiga 500 and 2000 were created, so was a new type of built-in memory, often referred to as slow-fast RAM. In most A20OOs, the second 512K of the computer's standard one-megabyte memory is slow-fast memory. In most A50()s, the 512K module that attaches to the bus on the computer’s underside is slow-fast memory. This portion of memory combines the worst characteristics of both fast memory and chip memory. Like fast RAM, it cannot be used for graphics or sound information. The main processor may have to wait, however, before accessing slow- fast memory, as with chip RAM. Because it is connected to the system in a manner similar to chip memory, it can be recognized automatically by the system ? WHILE BOTH HOLD data and are measured in units of kilobytes (K) and megabytes (MB), computer memory and storage are two distinct entities. You can think of computer memory as the processor's temporary work space, where it holds the instructions for the programs that are currently running and the information used by those programs1 Be- cause information stored in computer memory can be retrieved only by the processor, all of it is lost when the processor loses power or you reboot the computer. Without requiring auto-config circuitry, providing an inexpensive upgrade to one megabyte. Slow-fast memory’s latent power is unleashed by Commodore’s Enhanced Chip Set. While the original custom-chip set could address a maximum of 512K of chip RAM, the newly developed One-Meg Agnus Memory versus Storage Storage devices, such as floppy and hard disks, provide a permanent residence for program and data Chip Sense TO SAVE MONEY, you can purchase memory boards unpopulated (sans chips) then shop around for the best price on the chips. Make sure that the characteristics of the chips you buy match the requirements of your board. The safest way is to buy what the board's manufacturer recommends. Always make sure to check the:
• Memory capacity The current generation of chips is divided into 256-kilobit chips and 1-megabit chips. The next generation of 4- megabit chips is juststarting production, with 16-megabit chips to follow.
• Memory layout Not alt 1 -megabit chips are accessed in the same way. While the most common type are 1 megabit x 1 chips, a significant number of Amiga boards used 256Kx4 chips. You can use the latter to upgrade memory in 512K increments (4 chips), while the 1 meg x 1 chips usually can be added only a megabyte at a time (8 chips). Files, as information is inscribed on the disks' surfaces. The computer's processor can address storage devices only for reading and writing, however, not for performing calculations and other operations required to run a program. While adding 40MB of hard-disk storage to a 512K Amiga lets you store a multitude of programs in one place, it will not let you run a program requiring a megabyte of memory. Computer memory, then, is like the work area of your desk. Storage is like the drawers into which you sweep your papers each night, and from which you retrieve them each morning. ? SL nanoseconds and higher). Because the stock 7.14 Mhz Amiga is relatively slow by today's computer standards, do not feel obligated to pay extra for chips with a lower rating than 150 nanoseconds (unless the board requires them),
• Chip package The most common plug-in style of chips are called DIPs (Dual Inline Package). These are the little plastic rectangles that look like bugs with rows of metal legs on either side. Another plug-in module is called a SIMM (Single Inline Memory Module). SIMMs are like circuit boards that let you plug in a whole megabyte at a time. Other packages turn the rectangular chips on their sides, with all of the legs coming out one edge of the chip. These include SIPs (Single Inline Package) and ZIPs (similar to a SIP, but with the legs staggered like a zipper).
• Refresh type Most memory chips on the Amiga are Dynamic RAMs (DRAMs). The more expensive, but faster. Static RAMs (SRAMs) are used only for special applications, such as accelerator boards or battery- backed RAM disks. ? SL chip can address up to one megabyte of chip RAM. With the new Agnus, slow-fast memory turns into an extra 512K of true chip RAM. Whether you should upgrade to the new One-Meg Agnus chip depends on the types of programs you run and whether you want to fully enjoy the improvements AmigaDOS 1.4 will offer. If you use programs that require a lot of graphics and sound memory (such as desktop-publishing, painting, 3-D, desktop-video, and music software), the One-Meg Agnus will let you work with larger files and multitask. Installation requires modifications to the Amiga’s motherboard, plus the delicate removal and insertion of square-package chips. Play it safe and have a registered service center do the work. The entire upgrade typically costs between SI50 and S175. If you bought your Amiga after June 1989, it may already have the new Agnus chip. You can test for its presence in an A2000 or A2500 with the AVAIL command. From the CLI or Shell, type AVAIL. If you have a megabyte of chip RAM, the third item (in the Maximum column) in the first row (marked “Chip”) will read 1040152. If not, the number will he half as great. The situation is trickier for A500 owners. You cannot tell if you have the new Agnus chip without opening up the computer. (If you have the chip, you will see only four RAM chips oil the motherboard instead of 16.) Because the A500 comes with only 512K of memory, the computer is set at the factory for 512K of chip RAM. Even if you have the One- Meg Agnus and plug in a 512K expansion module, the RAM will not become chip RAM automatically. Your dealer must make internal modifications to the A500 before it will recognize the extra RAM as true chip RAM. Once the modifications are made, the computer will not operate unless the memory-ex- pansion module is plugged in. A1060 owners have no direct upgrade path to one megabyte of chip RAM, because the first Agnus chip is smaller than the new chips. A few third-party developers are working on adaptors that will allow the A1000 to accept the One-Meg Agnus. As of this writing, however, no details are available. Priority Ranking The type of memory the system uses first depends on the order in which the memory is added and the priority of the various blocks of memory. Normally, fast memory has a priority of zero, while chip memory has a priority of 10, This means programs will load into fast memory first, preserving chip memory for programs that specifically request it for storing graphics and sound data. While this is usually desirable, it can cause problems with programs that were written before fast memory was generally available. Some older software assumes that all memory is chip RAM, and does not specify the type of memory to use for graphics images. As a result, the program’s graphics and sound will not work correctly if you have fast RAM in the system. ? TR UMPCARD ON PERFORMANCE SHORT ON COST TRUMPCARD 500 (below)

Inc Circle 54 on Reader Service Card Expansion ACCELERATOR BOARDS THAT use 32- You can temporarily disable all fast memory with a program called NoFastMem. Located in the System drawer, NoFastMem allows programs that run correctly only in chip memory to work in a machine with fast RAM. Click on the NoFastMem icon, then run your problem program. When you are finished, reboot and the memory returns. The public domain offers some more permanent solutions. StealMemBoot (found on Fred Fish disk , 150) installs a program on a disk's boot block that automatically disables all last RAM when you start up ,j» Irom that disk. If your software uses boot-block copy bit processors, such as the 68020 or 68030, raise their own memory issues. Although such boards can access all kinds of Amiga memory, they are fastest when used with their own 32-bit memory. This designation does not refer to a special kind of chip or more chips per megabyte. Rather, it refers to the way in which the chip is connected to the 32-bit processor, allowing the processor to read and write more information at a time. When buying, you should consider:
• Auto-configuration Most memory boards auto-configure, which allows the system to recognize their memory automatically. The auto-config address space has room for only eight megabytes of expansion RAM, however, even though 32-bit processors can address up to 4096 megabytes (four gigabytes) of RAM. You can add boards that do not auto-configure on top of the eight megabytes of auto- config memory, but you must run a configuration program before the system recognizes them. Also, the Future Memory SOMEDAY YOU MAY not have to buy a memory board to expand your system. Newer accelerator boards contain a chip called a Memory Management Unit (68030 processor chips have an MMU built in) that lets your Amiga use storage devices such as hard drives as if they were very slow memory devices. When a program runs out of memory, it can read from and write to the disk instead of memory may be incompatible with some software, such as Amiga Basic.
• DMA support Some 32-bit memory boards (such as the ones from IM- tronics and C5A) do not allow DMA devices (such as hard-drive controllers) to directly read from and write to this memory. If you are using a DMA hard drive, non-DMA expansion memory will usually mean slower hard-drive access times*
• Burst mode Some memory boards (GVP's) for the 68030 processor support that chip's special "burst mode," which speeds up memory reads.
• Priority Auto-config memory boards usually put the 32-bit memory at the top of the memory list, while others (such as Imtronics' and CSA's) do not. If you are using a RAM disk, for example, you may not want this "faster" fast RAM used right away, however. Some public-domain programs such as MemPri (available on CompuServe) allow you to temporarily change the order in which such memory is used. ? SL RAM. Version 1.4 of the operating system will lay the groundwork for this development (called Virtual Memory), but full support will probably be a little farther down the road. In the meantime, software developers take note; If your programs ask for 32 megabytes of memory, someday they just might get them. ? SL protection, however, do not use StealMemBoot. Writing to the boot block could render such a disk unusable. Another alternative is Fixhunk (Fred Fish disk 197). Fixhunk changes the offending program so that it requests to he loaded into chip memory without disabling fast memory. Because Fixhunk alters the program’s code, use it only on a copy, not your original program disk. The priority situation is more complex if you have both slow-fast and fast RAM. Slow-fast RAM has the same priority as fast RAM, and because it is added to the system before any expansion RAM, it is used before fast memory. For optimum performance, your system should access fast RAM first. Located in Workbench’s System drawer, FastMemFirst (formerly Slow Mem Last) changes the priorities of the memory blocks so that the system will use expansion RAM before slow-fast memory. If you use Workbench’s default startup-sequence, you are all set. The startup- sequencc runs Fast Mem First automatically when you boot the computer. Accelerators and Memory Get It Together On a multitasking machine such as the Amiga, free memory is not always located in one solid block. Let’s say you run three 100K programs that load one after the other. If you close the first program and the third program, you free up 200K of memory, but it is fragmented: The 200K consists of two blocks of 100K each, separated by the second program, which is still loaded in memory. As a result, you may not be able to load a 150K data file into a program even though you have 200 K of free memory. The AVAIL command will show you the size of the largest chunk of contiguous memory. Although you should be aware of fragmentation, you cannot do much about it unless you have two or more memory-expansion boards. Even if the addresses of the two chunks of memory are located next to each other, the boards are considered separate. If you have a pair of two-megabyte boards, the largest chunk of fast RAM that a program can access is two megabytes. The MergeMem program in Workbench’s System drawer will combine the boards’ memory, however, so that a program can access them as a single chunk of memory that is four megabytes in size. Simply click on the icon. The complexities of Amiga memory result from the flexibility and power of the computer itself . Because of its multitasking, graphics, and sound capabilities, the Amiga can make use of all of the memory that you can supply. By the same token, any memory that you add to your computer will expand the range of possibilities open to you. The key is to expand most in the areas where you have the greatest need. ¦ Sheldon Leemon is the author of Inside Amiga Graphics and other hooks, and he is a frequent contributor to many computer publications.

MUSIC M Intelligent Music, $ 200 M is the first program to allow truly interactive composition, letting you and the computer make meaningful contributions at the same time. The interface is excellent for governing random pattern generation of musical sequences. AudioMaster II Flexible sample editing and a Hi-Fi play inode that exceeds the normal playback rate of 28K arc this program’s biggest assets. PROGRAMMING BASIC HiSoft BASIC Professional MichTron, SI59.95 An integrated compiler and editor, HiSoft BASIC produces compact code quickly. Your old programs won’t be outdated; HiSoft is almost completely compatible with Amiga Basic. It also gives you easy access to ROM Kernel routines. GFA BASIC 3.0 Antic, SI39.95 A rich assortment of commands plus inline C and assembly language capabilities enhance this speedy interpreter. Amiga Basic incompatibility drags it down, c Lattice C 5.02 Lattice, $ 300 This year’s winner of the C war is version
5. 02 of the Lattice compiler. Added options (such as registered parameters) and the global optimizer improve the code produced. The variety of compilation options, flexible linker, extensive library, and source level debugger round out this reliable package. Aztec C 3,6 Manx, $ 199; $ 299 developer’s version Like Lattice, the Manx C compiler generates fast, efficient code, but a relatively inflexible development environment relegates it to the number two spot. The source- level debugger is an additional SI25. MODULA-2 Benchmark: Modula-2 Avant-Garde, S199.95 Benchmark: Modula-2 lives up to its name, creating small, fast programs reasonably quickly. The integrated environment makes life easier as do the optional libraries and symbolic debugger. M2Sprint M2S Inc., $ 385 I'his fast single-pass compiler is accompanied by ARP, IFF, and Arexx libraries. You’ll appreciate the good manuals, as the program is still a bit buggy. UTILITIES Arexx William S. Hawes, S49.95 The standard for inter-program communications, Arexx is a programmable command language with extensive string options. It is compliant with Amiga programming standards and uses system capabilities effectively. As the list of supporting programs grows, Arexx will only become more useful. TxEd Plus MicroSmiths Inc., S79.95 A fast, small, politely multitasking text editor, TxEd Plus makes code entry and ed- iting efficient. SPREADSHEETS Superplan Precision Incorporated, $ 149.95 In addition to all the conventional spreadsheet capabilities, Superplan sports project management options and extremely powerful (but arcane) graphing functions. For the connoisseur, it also offers two types of macros, Lotus 1-2-3 file compatibility, and an Arexx interface. MaxiPlan Plus Oxxi Inc., SI99 Extremely easy to learn and use, Maxiplan Plus is a powerful number cruncher with beautiful graphs and database capabilities. TELECOMMUNICATIONS A-Talk 111 Oxxi Inc., $ 99 Very user-friendly, A-Talk III gets you on line without getting in your way. The extensive script language lets you customize almost everything, while the expansive list of protocols assures efficient downloading. Access Public Domain Straightforward and easy to use, Access gives beginners quick entry into the online world. While it lacks the multitude of protocols and options of commercial programs, the experts can’t pass up a good bargain. UTILITIES DiskMaster Progressive Peripherals & Software, $ 49.95 The intuitive design makes DiskMaster easy to run and simple to customize. The program combines common and some specialized file-management functions in a single comprehensive control screen.

By Jot*l Hagen I AM SO accustomed to the mercy of the UNIX) button when painting on the Amiga that 1 unconsciously reach for it in day-to-day life. Jab as I may, however, bread remains jelly-side down on the cat and fingers stay smashed between wrench and water pump. Fortunately, in the more easily governable world that is the subject of “Accent on Graphics,” 1 can explore with you, in this month’s installment, a variety of Amiga options for correcting mistakes and cleaning up images. UNDO at least in DeluxePaint and some other paint programs is the major panacea for most problems. Remember, though, that UNDO affects only your last action (although it is my understanding that Express Paint maintains a history of actions that can be successively undone). Get used to using the U key in Dpaint instead of the mouse-oriented toolbox. If" your toolbox is turned ofi with the F10 key and you need to undo something, turning it back on to find UNDO becomes your most recent move and you are stuck. Using the U key gets around this dilemma. Changing Colors in Midscene The need to change an area of color is a common painting situation. For example, you may have spattered several colors into a landscape to give the effect of sand, and you now need to replace the orange with brown. Or, perhaps, you digitized a black-and-white portrait to translate into PostScript for printout. To avoid any glaring, blank shapes caused by pure white, those areas must be one level darker the lightest PostScript dot pattern. Obviously, you can always go into the palette and adjust any color while looking at the painting to judge the result although this eliminates the color completely, replacing it with your new choice. For instance, in the PostScript problem posed above, it is simple to go into the palette and adjust color 15, white, to match color 14 by clicking once in its Value slider. This is a global change, however; while no longer exists. Thus, if later on you are going to need pure white in a border area or a text box, you must now selectively replace color 15 with color 14 without altering the palette. In Dpaint, under the Picture menu, you can use the option "BG to FG“ (background to foreground) in Change Color to solve the problem. Make the background color 15, and the foreground color 14. Clicking "BG to FG“ makes the color change over the entire picture, but does not affect the Palette. You can fill or repaint any areas you now want pure white. You can also pick up an area as a brush, use “BG to FG” in the Brush menu to localize the change, and then stamp it down again on the picture. Changing the white areas pixel by pixel would have been possible, but tedious. There are yet other ways to change colors. For instance, you can make a Stencil under the Effects menu. Select the color you wish to change, either from the Stencil window or directly from the screen. Click on Invert, then on Make. The color is now the only one that can be affected. Select a replacement color and paint with an appropriately sized brush. This is a good method to selectively change color within a complex area. In Dpaint III. The Stencil feature also allows you to pick up as a brush only those colors not locked by Stencil. This means you can create a Stencil and then use the brush tool and right mouse button to remove color from any area, replacing it auto- matically with the background color you have selected. The smart money is on these cleanup anil eorreetion tips when it comes to saving time and mess in making revisions to your work. Project Cleanup Let's explore other techniques as I describe the steps of a specific cleanup situation in the accompanying Iceland map illustration. Using Digi-View in Lo-Res Overscan mode, I captured a black-and- white image from a postcard map and then loaded it into Dpaint for cleanup. Working in 16-color Lo-Res allowed me to manipulate large areas of the screen. I used “BG to FG” to change all white in the picture to the next darker shade. I then made the vacant Palette position blue for good visibility. Under Effects, I selected Freeze Background, and using a small blue brush, I traced around the edges of the map. With the + and keys, I sized the brush up and down to get into fjords or cover broader areas of coast. When I made mistakes, Background Freeze allowed me to erase back to the original map with the right mouse button. I also kept my left hand on the keyboard, using the U key frequently until 1 was happy with a line. When the outline was complete, I unfroze the background. Selecting Fill and using blue as the background color, I filled the ocean while holding down the AIT key. In Dpainl III, this allows fill to cover all colors until it reaches the boundary of the current background color. In one move, all the black-and-white digitized dither was replaced writh blue. Selecting gray as foreground color, I picked up the entire map from the background with the Brush tool and then pressed SHIFT-K to clear the screen to blue. When I hit F2, Color mode, the digitized map became a clean silhouette in the foreground color, which I then stamped down in the ocean. 1 then adjusted the vacant Palette positions to more useful colors, making the map light green. With foreground green and background blue, I used the postcard for reference and touched up details, using both mouse buttons and Magnify when needed. Selecting a darker green foreground color, I removed the map from the ocean with the right button and hit F2 again to make the entire map a dark green brush. I extruded the map from lower right to upper left with the straight line tool “v.” Without moving the mouse, 1 hit FI to restore the brush to its original color and stamped it down in place over the extrusion. After saving the result for safety, I went to Screen Format to switch to Hikes Overscan in order to add text. After Dpaint stretched the image to the newr format, I typed the title. Text always looks better in Hi-Res, but I worked on the actual map in Lo-Res so that 1 could cut large brushes. Feeling at ease wFith a variety of cleanup techniques let me finish the project neatly and quickly. Putting the time to good use, I wras able to wash the jelly off the cat, ¦ Joel Hagen’s credits include work in art, astronomy, science fiction, and software development.

The sample we gave, however, provided only a way to avoid typing a fixed set of commands over and over. This month we will show you how you can make your scripts much more powerful by letting them work on many different sets of files and input options. You add this power by defining parameters. Info.phile Scripts For Success Part 2 They cast their characters and gave you the intro last month Now our AmigaDOS directors will set you the task of learning your “scripts and discovering the powerful work they can do when you add more complex parameters. By Mark L. Van Name and Bill Catchings A parameter is a placeholder that you use instead of a fixed filename or other string. You declare a parameter with the special script-file statement .KEY pararneter_name which you can also abbreviate as ,K parameter name This statement should be the first line in the script. You can then use the parameter anywhere in the script. For example, to create a simple script, BACKUP, that makes a copy of any file, you need only the statements .KEY file COPY file> file>.RAK Notice the and > bracket characters that surround file. You must place them around the parameter’s name every time you use that name in the script except in the initial .KEY statement. When you execute the script, the EXECUTE command replaces the parameter with an actual value that you supply as the script s argument, just as you would give an argument to any AmigaDOS command. To run BACKUP on the file my_data, enter EXECUTE BACKUP my_data The result will he a backup file, my_data.BAK. One is Fun, But Lets Pour on More In many cases, a single script parameter may not be sufficient to perform all the operations you want your script to accomplish. For example, you may wish to control the disk on which BACKUP places the .BAR copy of the file. Fortunately, a script can have many parameters. Just list them, with commas between them, on the .KEY statement, as in .KEY fi!e,disk COPY file> disk>: li!e>.BAK Do not leave a space between the parameters you define. If you do, when you EXECUTE the script you will get the message EXECUTE: Parameters unsuitable for key “file, disk” (where the string in quotes will he the text of your .KEY statement.) If you have more than two parameters, as in .KEY pl,p2,p3 and you leave a space between the second and third, EXECUTE will never see the third parameter an error that obviously can hurt your script file. Regardless of how many parameters you define, they must all appear in the same .KEY statement. If you try to EXECUTE a script with two or more .KEY statements, you will get the error message EXECUTE: More than one K directive You must, of course, supply an argument for each parameter. EXECUTE then matches your arguments to the parameters.

Arguments with their corresponding parameters. The first is by position: EXECUTE matches the first argument to the first parameter in the .KEY statement, the second argument to the second parameter, and so on. In our new BACKUP script, the command EXECUTE BACKUP foo DFO matches foo to file, and DFO to disk. (Note that you need not enter a colon after the disk name as you would normally do with other commands; the colon is in the script.) You can also use the names of the parameters to identify their arguments on the command line, as in EXECUTE BACKUP file foo disk DFO or EXECUTE BACKUP disk DFO file foo When you use parameter names, you can list the arguments in any order. You can also mix these two methods. For example, to give the disk name first, enter EXECUTE BACKUP disk DFO foo EXECUTE matches DFO to the parameter disk because you used that parameter’s name. It then matches the other argument, foo, to the remaining parameter, file. In general, EXECUTE first matches arguments with preceding parameter names to those parameters. It then matches the remaining arguments to the remaining parameters by position. No Arguments from Us Although we have stated so far that you must always supply an argument for every parameter, this is not entirely true; technically, you can omit any arguments you want. When you do, EXECUTE replaces that parameter in the script file with the null string (“ ”) everywhere it finds that parameter’s name. The problem is that when you omit an argument, errors can easily arise. Leave out either argument to our BACKUP script, for example, and the COPY command will fail and give you the error messages Bad arguments copy failed returncode 20 Some scripts, though, will work perfectly well without one or more of their arguments. Consider a simple script, NEW DISK, that copies a file to another disk, optionally with a new name for that file: .KEY file,disk,ne v_name COPY file> disk>: new_name> Run it with EXECUTE NEW_DISK my_file DFO frecl and it copies my file to DFOdred (the file named fred on DFO:). Run it without the third argument, as in EXECUTE NEW DISK my_file DFO and it copies my_file to DFO: retaining the filename mv file on that disk. J You should also be careful to type parameter names correctly. If you get a parameter name wrong, EXECUTE will assume that the name is an undefined parameter and replace it with the null string. Thus, if we wrote NEW DISK as .KEY file,disk,new_name COPY file> disk>: newname> (inadvertently substituting newname> for new_name> on the second line), EXECUTE would replace newname> with the null string and always copy file> to disk>: without a new name, regardless of the third argument. Two special “switches” let you control whether you must supply an argument for a parameter. These switches follow the parameter’s name on the .KEY line. The a switch makes a parameter mandatory. To force users of NEW DISK to supply at least the first two arguments, change the .KEY statement to .KEY file a,disk a,new_name (Again, remember not to leave any spaces between the parameters.) If you try to EXECUTE NEW-DISK without supplying either of the first two arguments, you will get the error message EXECUTE: Parameters unsuitable for key “file a,disk a,new_name” On the other hand, the k switch makes the parameter optional; if you do supply an argument for it, however, you must use the parameter name before that argument. Thus, if the .KEY statement in NEW DISK is , KEY file a,disk a,new_name k then to give a new name argument you must run it with a line such as EXECUTE NEW_DISK mv_filc DFO new name fred If you oinit (he parameter ncw_name, you will get the familiar message EXECUTE: Parameters unsuitable for key “file a,disk a,new_name k” Greater Value-By Default It is sometimes useful to give a missing optional parameter a value other than the null string. You can define default values for such parameters in two ways. The first is with the .DEF statement, as in .DEF new name “fred" This statement makes EXECUTE use the value fred whenever you run NEW- DISK without a new filename. Notice the quotes around the default value; always use them in .DEF statements. You need one .DEF statement per parameter. You can have more than one .DEF for a single parameter, but the value in the first .DEF is always the one assigned to the parameter. Thus, the two lines .DEF new name “fred” .DEF new_name “joe” are equivalent to the single line .DEF new_name "fred” The other option is to define a default value when you use a parameter. You do so by following the parameter’s name with a dollar sign ($ ) and then the default value. In the COPY statement in NEW DISK, we could enter COPY file> disk>: new_name $ fred> When you use this method, do not put quotes around the default value. You can mix these two styles if you j j want, but the first .DEF statement will always define the default value. It will over- ride any later .DEF statements or parameter_ nameSdefault value> usages for that parameter. And, of course, any argument that you supply for a parameter will override the parameter’s default value. Additionally, there is one special way to use the dollar sign that has nothing to do with default values. EXECUTE will ? CHOOSE THE RIGHT PATH!

If you want to use an angle bracket ( , >) or a dollar sign in a siring in a script, three dot (.) Commands allow' you to change the characters EXECUTE uses for those functions: .BRA .RET .DOLLAR (The first two get their names from the BRAcKET characters they define.) By default, EXECUTE acts as if you had entered the commands .BRA .RET > .DOLLAR $ Here you must insert a space between the command name and the character you are defining. Also, the dot (.) Must be the first character on the line. You can change these characters, as in .BRA [ .RET] .DOLLAR 8c With these changes, our previous de- fault-parameter value example would he COPY [file] [disk]:[new_name&:fred] You can use a . With no command name to enter comments in a script, as in . This is a comment. You must, however, leave one or more spaces after the . And before the comment’s text, or you will get the error message EXECUTE: Invalid directive You can also follow a . With a new line to put a blank line in a script. Although these last two features might seem useless at first, they can prove helpful, A script is a kind of program. While many scripts are simple, some may get quite complex. By using comments and blank lines, you can document your scripts and make them more readable, just as a good programmer will document code in any language. We said previously the .REY statement should be the first statement in your script. While that is generally good practice, it is not an absolute requirement. What is mandatory, however, is that if you want to use parameters in a script, some dot command must be the first line in that script. Also, the .REY command must precede all .DEE commands. We have now covered how to enter and execute scripts, and ways to pass them parameters. In the third and final part of this series, we will explore several special CLI script commands that allow you to make choices based on the values of parameters.

REASONS WHY YOU SHOIflD SHOP AT CREATIVE COMPUTERS: 5° SSI Last Minute These late arrivals are right on time for the shopping rush. By B. G. Hunter * THE END OF the year always puis me in a desperate and reflective mood; I get desperate for gift ideas as I reflect on all the game suggestions I’ve already given out. If you're still searching for the perfect present too, take heart. Several new games have arrived on my desk and beat out my old favorites. Grab your shopping list (or your wish list) and take note. Tee Anyone? Winter temperatures make me yearn for the sun. A round of Jack Nicklaus’ 18 Greatest Holes of Championship Golf (Accolade, S49.95) isn’t a trip to Jamaica, but it'll do in a pinch. The game is a lot more fun to play alone than my previous favorite, Mean 18 (Accolade, $ 44.95). Now, you can choose up to three computer-controlled opponents ofvarying ability. Top of the heap, of course, is the Golden Bear himself. .As you play, keep an eye on those opponents; they can teach you a lot. From Jack I learned to gamble and overswing. Just let your back-swing enter the red danger zone, then let it rip. Sure, your swing is more likely to be wild, but the resulting longer shots may get you on the green in fewer strokes. Don’t worry about making a perfect swing and clicking the mouse button at exactly the right moment tin the downswing. You'll probably be consistently a little late or a little early. Don’t fight it; just position yourself to compensate for your natural book or slice. A few clouds do darken the game’s horizon. Playing with the computer opponents lengthens the game, and detailed graphics slow play further. Putting is also tougher than in Mean 18. Most annoying was when one of my computer opponents (not Jack) got Authorized COMMODORE COMMODORE (AMIGA) SPECIALISTS SINCE 1979 Authorized Service and repair COM PUTERS Dealers Authorized Amiga Graphic Design & Desktop Publishing Specialists HARDWARE SOFTWARE Master 3-A External Disk Drive

Restart Your Engines The roadways are more crowded than the fairways, boasting two new arrivals. Stalled for two years in development. Turbo (MicroIllusions, $ 24.95) has finally hit the streets. You race up the screen through cities and countrysides, past an endless stream of cars and motorcycles. Your goal is to reach the finish line before time runs out. Another vehicle in your path? Knock it out of the way or shoot it but don't let anybody else get you. Pedestrians? Run them over and listen to the screams. You can even pick up such valuable supplies as faster tires and weapons. Be forewarned, however, that the scoring is oddly inconsistent: You get 5000 points for shooting a vehicle, but only 10 for knocking it off the road. I ran over and around (ahem, and into) a lot of obstacles but never made it close to the finish line. You won't find any beginner levels to make the task easier, either. If you don’t gel too frustrated, the long playing life coupled with the low price could make Turbo the holiday bargain. For a less bloodthirsty, but no less thrilling, ride, try The Duel: Test Drive II (Accolade, $ 44.95). You speed along country roads, racing either another car or the clock, winding your way through the traffic, all the while avoiding the ubiquitous police. To simplify the learning process of steering, shifting, and cop watching, Accolade has added several skill levels. On the first few, I fie car shifts itself. The road is easier to navigate at first, as well. As you drive, the road becomes less forgiving, more twisting, and more traffic infested. Of Smokey doesn’t hassle you until the third segment. The game’s biggest disadvantage is the limited selection of cars: a Porsche 959 and a Ferrari F40. For more variety, you can buy additional car and scenery disks (SI9.95 each). The key to learning The Duel is to start out at the Manufacturers5 Addresses lowest skill level. When you can complete the course, move up to the next level. You’ll have more fun, and your scores will increase as the levels get harder. To rack up the points you’ll need a fast car. The Lotus, with its top speed of about 160, just doesn't make it. Race against the dock. You won’t have to worry about the computer-controlled jerk crashing in your path and slowing you down. Also, pay particular attention to the course’s first segment. While it’s the easiest, it’s also crucial if you want a high score. If you finish it with the pedal to the metal the whole way, and never crash, you can average over 130 mph and score over
60. 000 points at the highest difficulty level. The Duel may not be the ultimate racing game, but it’s my present favorite. Let me know if these hints help you top my score of slightly under 130,000. The Jet Set If jet fuel flows in your veins, you'll want to find Falcon (Spectrum Holobyte, $ 49.95) and it’s Operation: Counterstrike Mission Disk ($ 24.95) under your tree. You fly Falcon’s F16 in basically the same way you fly other simulators. It even uses some of the same keys press the G key and, sure enough, the landing gear retracts. It isn’t quite as much fun to fly as F A- 18 Interceptor (Electronic Arts, $ 49,95), but it is very dose. Don't make the mistake of thinking you can get by strictly on your knowledge of other flight simulators; Falcon is a very complex game. To be an ace you must read the 140-page manual. Missions are the most fun. In the original game, 12 missions progressively lead to your enemy’s total destruction. As you complete each mission you get ribbons and medals. You can fly the missions at different difficulty levels and ranks. As a first lieutenant, for example, you don’t have to worry about crashing. If you want all the medals, however, you can’t avoid high rank and responsibility: Some medals go only to high-ranking officers. The dozen Counterstrike missions are better and more realistic. If you blow up a tank factory on one mission, for example, in succeeding missions you’ll have fewer tanks to fend off (until they rebuild the factory). ?

While the missions are more challenging, the flying is easier in Counterstrike. The F-I6’s landing gear is more forgiving, and the cockpit instrumentation is a step forward.

W S M E R E V I E G A Times of Lore By Patrick Quaid THE BELOVED HIGH King of Albareth has been missing for several years, and the kingdom is going to pot under the ineffective leadership of his steward. Through a series of quests you must investigate the disappearance and restore the High King to the throne. You gather information by talking to people. Select the mouth icon and choose to chat with or question nearby characters. If you decide to ask a question, the game provides a list of topics. Topics are added to this list as your character finds out about them through conversations, and removed when all the related information has been uncovered. T he interesting part of Times of Lore is that the auxiliary characters live their own lives. If you walk into a fellow's (1 never saw a female character) house at night, he is likely to be in bed. If not, he's probably up to something. In the morning you can watch him get up, putter around the house, then, for example, spend his day in a bar. The map is drawn from an almost overhead point of view, using shadows and well chosen colors to give it a feeling of depth. The design of the individual squares and their layout make the map seem tike a continuous sheet, rather than the familiar grid systems. This effect is further supported by the way the characters move in small increments, ignoring the implementation of the map. Reality sets in, however, when you try to walk through a doorway, around a table, or up some stairs. Until you get used to it, these obstacles can be quite a puzzle. Times of Lore comes on a copy-protected disk with a well-written game hook, a poster-sized map, and a computer-specific reference card. The hook begins with a narrative about the kingdom, (hen describes game mechanics and provides several clues. Times of Lore injects new life into a game genre that definitely needed ii. Although some aspects, such as conversation and combat, seem too simple, the foundation of the game is solid and refreshing.

3360. No special requirements.) Kingdoms of England By Patrick Quaid IF YOU’VE EVER thought about conquering Britain at the head of a massive army (and who hasn’t), Kingdoms of England might be your cup of tea. It combines a simple strategic challenge with a clean, useful interface to make a very 4 entertaining game. You start with one province, a small army, and a deep antipathy for your neighbors. You spend your tax money on troops, catapults, or castles (not many social programs in
1421) , and try to wage campaigns without being waged upon. You manage your empire almost entirely with the mouse, scrolling around a well-rendered map that includes Scotland and Wales. The game’s methods for indicating troop movements, geographical features, and castles convey their messages clearly and effectively, and entering orders is intuitive. This efficiency is complemented by touches that enhance the atmosphere of the game without slowing it down. Twice every game year, for example, you compete in an archery tournament. It has almost nothing to do with the rest of the game, but it’s fun and a welcome change of ? Fight to free your compatriots. Merry Diskmas from Sdof A Ho! Ho! Ho! Save Dough, Dough, Dough.

If you create the proper set of circumstances (I never have), you can attempt a daring rescue of captured comrades. The background string music fits well with the feel of the game. A detailed combat mode allows you to form and place units on the battlefield, then guide them during the fight. This mode is so detailed that the computer players aren’t bright enough to manage it instead they opt for a simpler summary mode. In fact the computer players aren't much competition at all. They have little sense of important positions and no long-range plans, much like teenagers. Deja Vu II: Lost in Las Vegas By Bruce Jordan BATHROOMS ARE QUITE popular in the Vu series of graphic adventures. In The game comes with two copy-protected disks and a short manual that could use some serious revision. It will run on 512K but requires one megabyte to support detailed battles and the music. Kingdoms of England has its problems. It doesn’t always recognize mouse clicks, for example, and huge battles can cause a nasty bug that makes the attacker nearly invincible. Generally, however, the game works smoothly and quickly, with little fuss and plenty to keep you interested. ($ 44.95, Incognito Software, 34518 Warren, Suite 149, Westland, MI 48185, 313 937-1850.

By Roger Goode QIX INDUCES THE same white-knuckled, nerve-jangling frenzy in me that blast-fest games produce in my rastereyed pals. 1 never shoot anything; however, I draw like a demon. The game begins with a colorful, constantly moving helix (the Qix) bouncing inside the large, square playing area. With your joystick you move a diamond-shaped marker, drawing boxes inside the square until you trap the Qix in a confined area by boxing the rest of the screen. Control 65 percent of the screen with boxes and you win. For everv j controlled percentage over 65, you receive a bonus of 1000 points. Boxes completed entirely in slow-draw mode are worth twice as much as those using the fast-draw option. Thev are also twice as risky if J • the Qix is nearby. You only have four lives, so be careful. If the Qix touches your marker or line, you get zapped. Sparx travel in ever increasing numbers around the perimeter of the screen, always following the lines of the boxes you've drawn and com- ing from both directions at once. The Fuse lives at the end of every line you start to draw. Once you begin a line, you are committed to finishing a new box. Should you stop or hesitate, the Fuse races down the line toward the marker. Your only hope is to complete the box before the Fuse catches vou. Turn left into your box too many times and the Fuse will chase you down the Spiral Death Trap you created, That’s your last life, Bunko, have vou considered an easier game? The pace gets faster and nastier on subsequent levels. Two Qix bounce around for starters. Close them into separate sections and your subsequent points are doubled. Level five brings Spritz, deadly snowflakes that float with the Qix. Capture one in a box and you get 500 points. .All in all, the game is an ac- ? WATCH OUT FOR FALLING BLOCKS Be Careful!

But something is missing you want a Batman computer game. Data East's uninspired port barely qualifies. Batman is short on action and long on needless complication. Even simple object-grabbing requires you to shift to a cumbersome icon screen, where the only thrills are those of inventory management. Except for the costumes, there is no recognizable Batman ambience. Batman does have an agreeably spare look, with decent, though unoriginal, graphics. Its two separate scenarios allow you to square off against die archvillain of your choice. Makes you pay extra. ($ 49.95, SportTime, 3187-G Airway Ave., Costa Mesa, CA 92626, 714 966-1311. Joystick required.) These pallid virtues, however, do not offset the shortcomings of this careless port. Despite having four Amiga sound channels available, it cannot play its sound effects and theme music at the same time. The obsolete interface is clumsy and unforgiving, and when you try to quit, the DOS-based copy-protection causes your drive to emit scary, unfamiliar noises that don't stop until you switch off' your computer. Worst of all, the game regularly requires you, as Batman, to pick things off the street and eat them a nasty piece of business that young Bat-fans might imitate.

When it comes time to print, you can select draft or NLQ mode without having to go into the Workbench’s Preferences screen. (Scribble! Uses a pulldown menu for this option, while Protext uses typed commands.) Finally, both programs can tally the word count in a document. Protext displays the total along with other statistical information on its Status line, located at the top of the screen. With Scribble! Platinum, you must select Info (equal to Status in the original Scribble!) From the Project menu, to see the word count, page length, margins, and other format information. Only You, Protext While these programs share capabilities, each has a number of features that differentiate it from the other. One of Protext’s strongest points is its time-saving macro capability, which lets you save a series of keystrokes and recall them by pressing one key. For example, you might design a macro that types your address and phone number at a designated place on the screen whenever you press ALT-R. Protext provides some predefined macros, as well, including one that swaps inverted characters. If you accidently type “wya” instead of “way”, simply place the cursor on the y and press CTRL-A to correct the mistake. Protext's Place Markers, which you imbed in a document, allow you to move between sections of text with one keystroke. Multiple Markers insert text into a document at print time; other markers ignore the spelling of a particular word, or index specific words and phrases. Foreign language accents and characters (umlaut, tilde, and so on) are available for characters supported by the IBM character set. A special Line Drawing Mode lets you produce Line Graphics with IBM compatible printers. In addition to the regular Lab function, Protext lets you select Decimal Tab for aligning numbers to the left and right of a decimal point. The Decimal Tab function can be configured to accommodate the use of the comma in place of the decimal point. Although Protext lacks a complete auto-hyphenation feature, it does supply a Soft Hyphen. This you enter manually to show where the formatter mav hv- > phenate a word if it is reformatted to appear at the end of a line. There are also provisions for Non-Break Spaces and Non-Break Hyphens. Just Scribbling A big plus in Scribblel’s corner is its Thesaurus. Invoking it brings up a screen displaying the word you want to replace, its part of speech (adjective, for instance), the first of its definitions, and a number of possible replacement words. Selecting Next lets you view the second definition (if there is one) and lists the possible substitutions for that meaning. The thesaurus can suggest replacements for each word on the substitution list as well, making your list of choices almost endless. One of Scribblers handiest features is Quick Save, which allows you to update documents simply by pressing F4. Because Quick Save writes over the existing tile, you'll still have to call up the Save screen if you wish to keep different versions of the same document. Scribble! Platinum employs a typed Dot command to insert IFF images into documents. Graphics will not appear on screen, but will be included in vour hard copy, provided you are using a graphics- compatible printer. If you spot an error, use the Abort Printing command (ESC) to stop your printer in its tracks. You can customize Scribble! Windows by selecting up to eight screen colors, horizontal or vertical overscan, or interlaced mode. Also, vou can choose 7 > whether or not icons arc generated for each document. Whatll It Be? Scribble! Platinum and Protext are two powerful word processors geared toward different audiences. If you prefer the CLI environment, the straight-forward, no-nonsense Protext is probably for you. MichTron states dearly that you will get more out of the program using it in Command Mode. Protext’s 300 4- page manual is very detailed, hut it rarely refers to the pull-down menu commands. It also lacks diagrams of any type, and is often difficult to follow. With time, anyone could learn to use Protext, but it seems best suited for more experienced users. Scribble! Platinum, on the other hand, is a good choice for less experienced and younger users. Operating in the Workbench environment, with point-and-click commands, it is easy to learn and use. Scribblel’s manual includes plenty of screen diagrams to complement the written explanations. The graphic elements such as a camera for Copy mode and scissors for the Cut function make it difficult to perform the wrong operation. Experienced typists will appreciate Scribble!'s many keyboard equivalents. Both programs do their jobs quite well, and neither will let you down. Scribble!

By Wayland Strickland PROGRESSIVE PERIPHERALS AND Software, makers of ProGEN, now offer another genlock for the Amiga. MiniGEN, a tiny 61 , x PA, x 274-inch box, has only three connection points. On one end of the unit are two female RCA connectors through which the unit receives external video (from a camera, VCR, or some other source) and sends a composite video signal for use by a VCR or monitor. On the other end, a female 23-pin D connector joins the genlock directly with the Amiga's RGB port. This setup eliminates the need for cables, but may present problems in tight quarters, as it requires you have a seven-inch clearance space behind the computer. It can also make for somewhat awkward switching between output modes: A toggle on the top of the unit lets you select graphics only, external video only, or mixed (graphics ovcrlayed on video). The unit lacks the usual RGB port loop-through, which sends video directly from the Amiga to the monitor. While a loop-through (or a second video output) would probably increase miniGEN’s cost, its absence renders the RGB monitor virtually useless. One way around this is to connect the genlock’s composite video out to the monitor's composite video in. This allows vou to see what vou are doing, but is not a cure-all, as the Amiga monitor does not have a loop-through, either. To record under this arrangement, you must disconnect the video line 7 and reconnect it to vour VCR. Lasting Impression 1 had some doubts about miniGEN when 1 removed the unit from its package and the top half of the plastic shell came off in my hand. You cannot judge a genlock by its cover, though, and 1 am pleased to report that miniGEN performed remarkably well. Without an external video source, miniGEN’s output video is unusable, so you must connect a camera, VCR, tuner, or blackburst video signal to the external video input. This configuration will shorten the life of the tube in a tube-tvpe video camera, hut has no other detrimental effects. 1 tried miniGEN with all these sources and had no difficulty. The results you get from a genlock depend greatly on the reference signal. If you use a videotape with oversaturated chroma, for example, the genlock will ?

CO 110322*8804 20AD6 adjust the Amiga’s graphic output accordingly. The same is true for video levels and sync. (To get the best reference signal from a videotape, record in the fastest speed possible.) Lo test miniGEN, I input a blackburst video signal from a Grass Valley RS170A reference sync generator, which provides a stable video source. (Consumer cameras and videotape machines without time-based correctors tend to drift.) The input consisted of sync -40 IRE (a videolevel measurement developed by the Institute of Radio Engineers), burst 20 to
- 20 IRE, setup 7.5 IRE, and chroma 40 to -40 IRE. I used two sets of color bars for die tests. With a waveform monitor and vectorscope, I created one set based on the composite video output of Super- Gen (Digital Creations). The other set came from the disk packaged with miniGEN. The genlock’s performance changed slightly depending on which output mode was selected. .All modes reported sync (which sets the stability of the video signal) at -35 IRE. While sync should, as a rule, be -40, this is not too far off. According to FCC ruling, the setup level (similar to the brightness control on a television set) should be 7.5 IRE. Some situations may dictate that setup be higher (setup in both Picture and Mixed modes is 10), but the only time it should be lower is when a video signal is to be keyed via a switcher. This is not the case here, although setup in Graphics mode comes in at 5 IRE. The remaining levels were within tolerance. Graphics mode yielded burst at 23 to -23, white bar at 90, and chroma at 40 to -40. In Picture mode, a slight horizontal phase shift appeared and the reference blackburst video was altered a bit from input. I measured burst at 20 to
- 20, and chroma at 40 to -40. In Mixed mode, wherein the reference video becomes a background onto which Amiga graphics are overlayed, miniGEN produced these results: burst 20 to -20, white bar 90, and chroma 40 to -40 IRE. Support Crew The disk packaged with miniGEN contains several lest IFF pictures, and a program called Set Lace, which triggers interlaced mode when the genlock is attached. (A 1000 models interlace automatically when you connect a genlock, but A500s and A2000s do not.) The 14- page manual describes how to connect and operate miniGEN, and includes some technical information and tips to help you deal with any problems you may encounter. The output signal from miniGEN was surprisingly good, and ringing occurred around hard edges only when I used a second-generation VI ES tape as reference video. MiniGEN does have drawbacks, the biggest being its lack of an RGB loop-through. Nevertheless, it is a good deal for a very reasonable price.

Digitized voices and sound effects accompany each graphic image on disk; simply click the mouth icon to hear the current picture’s sound. Drawing and coloring is done with the mouse, which should not be a problem for any child able to draw with crayons. Children can draw and color with either the small brush, which draws a fine line, or with the big brush, which renders a thick line. The mirroring option mirrors whatever is drawn. 1'he Fill-em-up tool fills a selected area with color and guarantees staying within the lines. Flashing colors cycles the palette colors on the picture. Kids can save their pictures in IFF format. Pressing the Help key starts an arrow circling the screen, explaining the functions of each icon and object both verbally and in text form. Once the help process begins, however, there’s no stopping until it is finished. Because the old Elizabeth experienced no problems with MyPaint, beyond arguing who would use it first. Both found the digitized sounds entertaining and the large icons easy to use. Elizabeth’s biggest complaint was the lack of a bright orange color on the palette.

As with Elizabeth, he experienced no major difficulty in using Dinosaurs Arc Forever, but tended to ask for more assistance in accessing its features than lie did with MyPaint.

(617) 244-6954 Dr.T’s No function was particularly difficult for either child to master. Familiarizing myself with the program before turning it over to them was beneficial, though, and something 1 would recommend to other parents. Beyond Extinction By the same token, previewing Dinosaurs Are Forever will make a pleasant experience out of teaching your kids to use it. This educational coloring program contains images, names, and descriptions for 26 different beasts. Digitized sound, reminiscent of frenzied pigs being herded with cattle prods, accompanies the loading of each black- and-white low-resolution drawing. The 24-color palette has provisions for mixing and adjusting individual colors, and coloring is done with the mouse. Each image is saved to disk as the next image is accessed, so when a previously colored image is loaded, the colors are applied once the image appears. Because of this rather odd procedure, it's an absolute necessity to work with a copy of the program disk to prevent unintentional coloring of the master images. Dinosaurs Are Forever does not allow children to create images of their own design for coloring. Unlike MyPaint, there are no brushes available for detail work; the coloring function works in a delayed fill mode. Once the child selects an area to fill and a color and presses the mouse button, there’s a brief delay. Then the selected area instantly fills with color. A pull-down menu offers various print options. You can output an image by itself, above a calendar (stickers are provided to mark special days), accompanied by a personalized message or a description of the dinosaur, or as a banner (a variety of fonts are available for text). The program includes a transparent color printer driver for output to a color printer. Here Come the Judges Based on her expressions and level of attentiveness, Elizabeth found Dinosaurs Are Forever less exciting and more complicated than MyPaint. Its physically smaller palette and smaller pointer make the program more difficult to use, and without animation, there’s not as much happening on the screen as in MyPaint.

Better programs exist for making calendars and banners and for painting, and I cannot recommend Dinosaurs Are Forever as an educational tool because the information on each animal is so brief. For fun and creativity, MyPaint is the better of the two programs. ?- Level MyPaint Prism Computer Products Distributed by Centaur Software 14040 Tahiti Way, Suite 528 Marina Del Rey, CA 90202 213 821-5995 S49.95 No special requirements.

By Louis R. Wallace PACIFIC PERIPHERALS’ OverDrive is an internal SCSI harcl-disk controller for A2000-series machines that allows daisy chaining of up to seven hard disks. The company sells OverDrive either by itself or in hard-card format with a hard disk attached (several configurations are available). Based on the TrumpCard (Interactive Video Systems), OverDrive is enhanced by a faster Motorola 68440 DMA controller. Also, it now supports direct autobooting on Amigas equipped with 1.3 Kickstart ROMs. To update OverDrive models not equipped with the autoboot feature, Pacific Peripherals sells a daughterboard ($ 25) that mounts on the card without blocking the hard-drive space. On and Up If you buy an OverDrive hard card, installation is as simple as inserting il into a slot. Even if you buy the card separately (purchased this way it comes with mounting holts and plastic standoffs), getting il together is fairly straightforward. Once you have installed OverDrive, hoot with the supplied floppy disk and specify the type of drive you are using and its device number via the menu on screen. Then format the drive, have the software check for bad blocks, and finally, write data to the drive. The installation software, somewhat a hybrid of Workbench 1.2 and 1.3, modifies the mountlist automatically. While this is not the best harcl-disk installation software I have used, it is not the worst either, and if you follow the documentation, the process is not difficult. I tested a daughterboard-equipped OverDrive and found that it autoboots as This ad was created at twice this size, printed by PlxelScrlpt vt.1 on an HP LaserJet, and reduced by half.

5699. 95 with 40-meg drive No special requirements. City Desk 2.0 Save some for laser. By Nancy Devitt BECAUSE IT OFFERED a level of control previously unavailable in Amiga desktop publishing, the original City Desk made a big splash. Its heyday was short, however, due to its lack of a word processor, its rudimentary graphics editor, and most importantly, the fact that it did not allow you to see on screen what your printed output would look like. Now, City Desk is back with version
2. 0. Like a friend you haven’t seen in years, you will find that although it has been through some changes, it is still the same in many ways. The look is similar and some of the old faults are there, but Citv Desk 2.0 includes new tools that make it especially useful to owners of Hewlett Packard-compatible laser printers. Laser Luck A shortcoming of most Amiga desktop- publishing software is difficulty in accessing either the Hewlett Packard cartridge fonts or the widely available and more economical “soft” (downloadable) fonts.

In addition, this utility generates PostScript fonts front fonts in your existing directory in different sizes, or in hold, italic, or bold italic. One bad trait left over from its original incarnation is City Desk's non- WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) screen display. All font selection and formatting is accomplished through embedded text commands, an awkward process that seems primitive compared with other methods. Dot-Matrix Mayhem While City Desk solves problems for laser printer owners, it presents difficulties for dot-matrix owners. PostScript and other laser fonts follow the typographical point-measuremeru system (one point equals Zr, of an inch). In the case ol 'bitmapped Amiga fonts, however which are your only option for printing on a dot-matrix device a point refers to one on-screen pixel, whose height and width are not fixed hut determined by screen resolution. To produce the standard spacing of six print lines per inch using laser fonts, you Print: on trial. Point bitmapped font. This presents a potential problem in terms of memory, as a 30-point font set occupies approximately 68K. The 90-point font required for a half-inch headline at this resolution would consume more than half a meg. Another problem related to printing is that while most recent desktop-publishing software provides an easy means of scaling the printout relative to screen resolution, City Desk 2.0 does not. Font resizing must be done from within the body of the text using the Mag command, which can involve some fairly complicated mathematics. T he results of this process are sometimes unpredictable, and because City Desk 2.0 does not show text on screen as it will output on paper, a number of trial printouts may be required. NO IS ARP City Desk 2.0 comes with a loose-leal manual and four disks. A tutorial videotape, which comes packaged with two clip-art disks, is available for an extra $ 29.95. The software is not copy-protected and a hard-disk installation file is included. .Although the program requires the file arp.library, the manual warns that if you are already using ARP (the AmigaDOS Replacement Project) commands, the installation utility will not work. In spite of the widespread use of the ARP commands and the fact that Lhis constraint could cause difficulty, no tie- tailed instructions for manual installation are given.

3499. 95 PlotPrint (Hi-Tech Graphics) BACKTALK CANDID RESPONSES TO AMIGAWORLD REVIEWS I agree that the documentation For PlotPrint (reviewed by Stephen El- lerin in the July ’89 issue) is very hard to understand, but feel that the program itself is excellent. After much reading of the manual and quite a bit of experimenting, I can now produce an excellent plot of any drawing with virtually no distortion. Edward H, Haskell Escondido, CA PlotPrint provides far better print resolution than what appears on screen: It can deliver up to nearly 5000 dots across on a wide-carriage printer at 360 dpi, and 3120 dots on an Ep- son-tvpe printer. While it is true that you must experiment with scaling factors, it is impossible to automatically scale HPCL output for printers. Furthermore, when PlotPrint takes 12 minutes to output the same drawing Draw 2000 (Aegis) prints in 10, PlotPrint is outputting at least twice as many dots. Michael J. Keryan Hi-Tech Graphics PageStream (Soft-Logik Publishing) PageStream (reviewed by Chris Dickman in the July ’89 issue) has been designed to support the complete range of printers from 9-pin dot-matrix to downloadable and built- in PostScript fonts.

On my one-meg A500, attempts at dot-matrix printing caused repeated guru visits (with my HP compatible, however, the program worked fine). Pages are limited to standard letter size, and the program does not support color printers. A utility is included to convert any color IFF graphic with 64 or fewer colors to 16 shades of gray. The manual recommends processing pictures of more than 64 colors with various commercial programs. MicroSearch is to be complimented for being the first to recognize the popular and affordable Hewlett Packard lasers and their compatibles. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a trend. Compared with other Amiga desktop-publishing programs, however, and with those available for other computers, City Desk's embedded formatting, its lack of color capability, its non-WYSIWYG text, and the limitations regarding page size are unacceptable.

More modules can be added without rewriting the program, and these will be distributed free when completed. In our opinion, PageStream’s import capability is limited only by the modules available. M.W. Kazmaier Soft-Logik Publishing While PostScript does not rate a mention in the PageStream manual's index, the documentation does state that ‘You must use screen and printer fonts specifically designed for use with PageStream (or those converted for it)." There is no further mention of this, but a Soft-Logik technical support representative told me the program supports the resident Times-Roman and Helvetica fonts of PostScript printers. To test this support, I created a PageStream document with Times-Roman type and wrote a PostScript program to output the same string of type. The results reveal PageStream’s approach to driving a PostScript printer is non-standard. There is apparently also an optional font disk that provides support for other resident PostScript printer fonts, but again, there is no mention in the manual. The Soft-Logik representative said there was no support for industry-standard downloadable fonts you must buy Soft- n t 1 n u e d Logik’s own versions of these fonts. 'The conversion program reportedly under development will add greatly to PageStream’s functionality. Chris Dickman M2Sprint (M2S Inc.) I was disappointed in David McClellan’s review of M2Sprint in the September '89 issue. It is inappropriate for Mr. McClellan to run benchmarks on a system with M2Sprint’s minimum configuration. That he included a disk swap is unforgivable! His comparisons were onesided. The difference between M2Sprint and its competitors, and the cause of the disk swap, is that M2Sprint is a development system, not just a compiler. The reviewer is silent about the fact that we supply over 170 library modules, in source form, with M2Sprint. Mr. McClellan’s primary attack was on our post-mortem debugger, which is standard with our package and not available from our Modula-2 competitors. It was unfair then to compare it to a debugging product for another language. Jeff V Range M2S Inc. In response to David T. McClellan’s review of M2Sprint» Mr. McClellan failed to list the configration of the Amiga on which the tests were performed. To criticze that M2Sprint’s compiler and module definitions and libraries are sizable is not realistic. I feel the timing comparison was poorly done. How can the compile and link times represent a true comparison when one includes an unavoidable disk swap? His comparison to Lattice C’s debugger was also unfair. Rob Lockie Burlington, Ontario, Canada I did not mention every feature of M2Spnni, but concentrated on things that matter to me as a developer, including size, speed, and quality of the tools, and problems that occurred when bringing up programs that run under other compilers without major hitches. Most readers who write to me have no more than IV2 megs of memory and two floppy drives (this was the configuration of the test system). The fact that a compiler running on such a system requires a disk swap does matter. Comparing a Modula-2 package to a C compiler is not unfair because C, and every other language, is competition for Modula-2! For a major project I worked on, we chose C over Modula-2 and Pascal on the basis of tools available for each. David T. McClellan ? HIGHER PERFORMANCE...AND CHEAPER TO BOOT!

Compiled by Tim Walsh Closing Troublesome Windows WHEN ACTIVATING public-domain utilities such as GOME 1.0 (Fred Fish disk 95), from a startup-sequence or CLI, the CLI window from which you started it can’t he closed. Consequently, you end up opening another CLI or Shell because the original window no longer recognizes or responds to any commands. The easiest solution involves activating the unfriendly utility from a CLI using the following command: Run >nil: nil: Gomfl.O As an equally effective alternative, include the following commands in your startup-sequence: Run >nil: Gomfl.O Either method will redirect the output to NIL: and close the CLI window. (Incidentally, this process also works well with higher versions of Gomf, such as Com FLO.) Those troublesome CLI windows will now become a thing of the past! Ernie Millan Downey, CA Hard-Drive Woes AS A NEW owner of a hard-disk drive, 1 had a problem where no matter what I did, 1 simply could not drag icons from my floppies into the hard-disk drive windows. Faced with a lifetime of intensive CLI file-copying activity to transfer files to my hard disk, I knew there had to he an easy solution. Sure enough, there was. Poised in my startup-sequence was a call to Mach (Fred Fish disk 130). A public-domain mouse enhancer, Mach instantly activates the window that the pointer is currently positioned in, without a press of the left mouse button. While this is otherwise a time-saving feature, it prevents dragging a file or drawer icon into the hard-disk window. When the icon reached the destination window, it transferred control from the source disk and over to the hard disk, thus losing the source icon. By removing the startup-sequence call to Mach, dragging icons to my hard-disk drive worked flawlessly. If other Amiga users experience similar problems, always check for the presence of Mach or similar step-saving utilities on your disks before placing the blame on the hardware. Gary Ludwick Huntersville, NC Keeping Tabs via FreeMap GRAPHICS PROGRAMS, such as New- Tek’s Digi-Paint 3, Microillusion's Photon Paint 2.0, and Electronic Arts’ Deluxe- Paint III, all devour enormous amounts of Chip RAM. For instance, with Digi- Paint 3, Workbench, and a typical word processor running simultaneously, you’ll usually have only about 200K of Chip RAM available on an Amiga equipped with 512K of Chip RAM. Open several windows or start some serious multitasking and without a doubt, the infamous "You are getting low on Chip memory" messages will start to appear. When you least expect it, you might suffer a non-re- coverable system crash and possibly lose whatever you’re working on. There’s an easy way to keep track of how much free Chip RAM is available at all times. In the Tools drawer of the Extras 1.3 disk, there’s a utility called FreeMap. Activate it by double-clicking its icon and it will reveal how much Chip and Fast RAM is available. Toggling the front hack gadget will hide it from sight when you don’t need it. By keeping you informed of how much Chip RAM you’re using, FreeMap can help you to avoid disaster. Ronald J. Elliott Washington, DC Faster File Access IF YOU HAVE one or more megabytes of RAM and no hard-disk drive, you probably think you’re out of luck trying to save data to RAM if there’s a RAM: option missing in the application software’s file requester. Just include a statement in your startup-sequence, such as Assign DHO: RAM:. Then, when saving data to the RAM disk, select the DHO: option as the destination drive. Your files will then be saved to RAM and can be retrieved for later use. For permanent storage, though, just he sure to copy them to floppy disk before powering down.

Wallace Wrong Dimension Q: When I dimension 2-D Amiga Basic arrays with more than 70 elements each DIM A%(80,80), for example I get an “out of memory” error message. I assume this must be the limit of Amiga Basic's memory, because my Amiga has over three megs of FLAM. Is there any way to get around this? Do other BASICs allow larger arrays?
B. Cozad Ann Arbor, MI A: The limitation you mention is caused by Amiga Basic's default memory configuration. When Amiga Basic first starts it only allows 25K of RAM for programs. To access more, vou must begin your programs with the CXEAR command followed by the amount of memory you want Amiga Basic to use. In the following example I allocated 200,000 bytes and was able to dimen- sion an array of 90,000 elements. If you need more, just clear a larger amount. A good practice is to free that memory when the program is finished by issuing the CLEAR command again. Allocate memory CLEAR,200000k 'declare large array DIM A%(300,300) ’your program’s body ’would be here ’restore memory on exit CLEAR, 25000 END .As for other BASICs offering large arrays, both the AC- BASIC (Absoft) and Hi-Soft BASIC (distributed in the U.S. by MichTron) compilers allow you to use very large amounts of memory in your compiled programs. 32-bit Future Q: I want to add memory to my Amiga, but I want it to be compatible with future hardware upgrades. Should I buy 32-bit memory ?
J. Williams Mann ford, OK A: Unless you already have a 32-bit CPU (a 6S020 or a 68030), 32-bit memory makes no sense. For now, install a conventional memory board. .Although it will not be 32-bit wide memory, the RAM will still be usable if you upgrade to a 32-bit CPU. You can decide then whether to add a 32- bit RAM board. Currently, the Commodore A2620 68020 hoard comes with two megabytes of 32-bit memory and is expandable to four. Other boards (such as Great Valley Product’s impressive 68030 accelerator card) can contain up to eight megabytes of 32-bit RAM. RAMDOS Rescue Q: I am having trouble with my file RAMDOS. The listing is: makedir ram:c copy df0:c copy ramx ram:cfcopy dfO:c cd ram:c ram:c copy df Ox delete ramx ram:c copy df0:c info ramx ram:c copy df Ox dir ram:c assign c: ramx df Ox path dfOx After executing this, all the files I need are in RAM: and work perfectly. When I leave the CLI by executing an ENDCLI command, I can no longer return to the CLI. I point and click on the CLI icon and nothing happens. According to Workbench's Last Error option, no error seems to occur. Help!
C. Abbate Oak Park, IL A: The simplest solution is to replace the last two lines of your RAMDOS hatch file with: dfO:c path ramx This command will give you high-speed access to the above commands from the RAM disk, and will allow you to exit the CLI via an ENDCLI command and return by clicking the Cll’s icon. A far better method is to use AmigaDOS 1.3's Shell instead of the CLI. With the Shell you can make the above commands resident, available to all the Shells you open. Try adding the following to your Startup-Sequence in the S: directory of your boot disk: j v resident dfD:c info resident df0:c cd resident dfDic delete resident dfD:c dir Make a List Q: I am a new Amiga owner and want to use this wonderful machine for some very large databases. As owner manager of an international toy distribution facility, I need to keep a record of all the possible recipients of my products. The database would contain important information such as the person's name and address, what kind of products they requested, and, most importantly, meaning]id information describing the individual's behavioral patterns during this calendar year. It would be nice if I could keep a picture of the person in the file too. I also need to keep track of such things as the amount of reindeer chow I buy, as well as a small-employee personnel file. What do you think would work?
S. Nicholas North of Canada A: I suggest either Superbase Professional (Precision Incorporated) or DataRetrieve Professional (Abacus). Both should be able to do what you need. ¦ WE DON’T CLAIM TO HAVE
