If you’re an A30Q0 user, be particularly careful when installing that version, as the sockets for the two ROMs in some machines are labeled backwards; follow the instructions included with the upgrade, and all will be well. If you’re not comfortable with the procedure, though, you'd better let a dealer or technical friend perform the upgrade for you, as replacement Amiga motherboards are now rare. Why Buy? Should you upgrade to AmigaDOS 3.1? If you use your Amiga for more than just games, absolutely. How big an improvement you’ll see depends on which operating system you’re currently running. If your machine is now equipped with Kickstart 1. 3 or earlier, installing 3.1 will make it perform like an entirely new computer, with a new interface, better performance, and tons of new capabilities. AmigaDOS 2.04 users will see many new improvements, such as the ability to read and write MS- DOS disks, language support, PostScript printing, better font support in some applications, IFF Workbench backdrops, and more. With 2.1, the improvements are more subtle, but some of them such as dramatically faster Workbench graphics updates and support lor file datatypes will make the upgrade worthwhile. Users of Amigas equipped with the original chip set and graphics cards such as the Picasso II will find 3,1 well worth the money, as it will let them run most OS-legal programs such as Page- Stream 3.0, Professional Page 4. 1, Final Writer, and SimLife AGA in 256 colors. The decision is tougher for Amiga 4000 owners. The 3. 1 release does offer some improvements over 3.0, including built-in CD-ROM drive support, more datatypes (including ANIM and GDXL), and new monitor drivers that allow larger overscan values and eliminate black borders in most cases. There are also numerous fixes of subtle bugs. Amiga 1200 owners can use the disks with Kickstart 3. 0, thus taking advantage of many of the improvements, including the new datatypes and CD-ROM driver. But some ROM- based enhancements, such as larger screen sizes, won’t be available until someone releases a 3.1 Kickstart designed for the A1200. ¦ Denny Atkin is author of the hook Denny Atkin’s Best Amiga Tips and Secrets.

Watching horse races at bush tracks, you sometimes see some pretty poor events in which it seems the entire field is lumbering down the stretch wearing ankle boots of the kind favored by the late Jimmy Hoffa. Copy that thought for the “Commodore Derby” described in this column a month ago. Thirty days is short ii you're in the armv, short if you
- J 7 want to pay olTyour entire MasterCard bill, and short if you’re trying to select the jury in the O] Simpson trial. But considering where I thought we were last month in the liquidation proceedings, I can’t believe no one’s turned up in the Commodore winner’s circle by now. I guess lawyers don’t make good jockeys. So Who Are We Mad At? By their lack of haste, lawyers do, however, make my column appear almost timely. Let’s face it, when it comes to news, magazine publishing in its present format isn't ready for even the entrance ramp to the “I-way," nor is it even competitive with traditional-format daily or weekly newspapers. (You can’t believe, clear old reader, how scarv it is to send out an editorial column like this when I j know how many weeks later it's actually going to be before you read it in print.) So although I went out on a limb last month to make a prediction (that the former UK management team would win), thirty days later nothing’s come back (yet!) To haunt me because nothing was resolved in the interim. Even back in November 1948. When almost every newspaper in the country ran the headline "Dewey Wins!” they only had to wait eight hours to cat crow and run a new morning edition with "(Sorry) Truman’s Back!" Bahamian Bossanova AllegroI So, let's get the legal proceedings on the move. The fact that ihe Bahamian Supreme Court required the liquidators’ recommendations by October 15 (see “Overscan,”
p. 4) sounds like at least one step forward for Amigakind. The fact, also, that David Pleasance has already put the pedal to the floor to have all operations production, distribution, and marketing in place and ready to go shows that he’s ready to move imediatcly if his group wins the bid. And the fact that Alex Amor of CEI has conducted several online interviews recently lo outline his plans in m eat detail should he be the winner demonstrates that he O means business, too. Everyone is ready and waiting. Maybe with a little (slightly edited) ’60s Dylan-power behind us, we could exhort the legal eagles to listen to us: Come lawyers and judges Who decree with your pen. And keep your eyes wide The chance won’t come again; And please speak real soon For the wheel’s still in spin, And there’s no telling who that it s narnin’; For the I oser now may never get to win For the times they are a-changin’!

COYER ILLUSTRATION BY BOB SC MUCH MAN; COVER PHOTO BY EDWARD JU DICE; COVER SCREEN SHOT PROVIDED BY ADVENTURE SOFT LTD Amiga World 3 OVERSCAN Sound and Motion Let MetroGrafx add a little “bounce” to vour animations with two new Motion J Master utility collections (S 149.95 each). Motion Master Volume I, a set of four programs, includes Time Machine for LightWave 3D, which features a timeline- editing environment for fast and easy morph setup, automatic key setup on a common graph, and a set of phonetic mouth positions for easy animated lip syncing. The Extract Audio utility features speech synchronization with adjustable curve fitting, and the scaling and placement of audio data on any channel of a motion envelope. The Pathflock flocking program features a true behavorial flocking technique with collision avoidance, h includes controls for strength of flocking urge, minimum intraobject distance, distant “bird” convergance with the flock, and a chaos factor for mapping erratic flight. Finally, the Mouse Recorder utility provides a “scratch pad” to record mouse movement in real time, which it can then Telecom With Teeth Oregon Research wants to help you chew through telecommunications. Its new Termite terminal program ($ 49.95) supports data-transfer speeds from 300 to 115,200 baud. The program also allows multiple-line BBSs, a multitasking chat window, automatic call logging, configurable macros and button bars, and a flexible phone book with distinct configurations for each number. Plus, it has a customizable review buffer with cut-and- paste editing. Termite is fully Arexx-programmable and 100% Amiga Style Guide-compliant, and it operates on all Amigas with one megabyte or more of RAM and Workbench
2. 0 or later. To locate the vendors of products mentioned, see the "Manufacturers' Distributors' Addresses" list on p. 27. Apply to an envelope or motion file. Motion Master Volume II provides four new animation and motion-control utilities. If you work with hierarchically linked objects, the Child World 2 multiple-coordinate system translator may come in handy. It lets vou detach a child J j object, even one inherited from a parent, with all motions and scaling intact. Meanwhile, Wobbler adds wobble and spring to animated objects based on their motion and rotational velocity. It includes behavior controls such as damping and “blobbyness.” The Point At targeting utility makes it possible for an object to target another object. It takes source and target motion and produces a new source that has the same position and scale but a . Axis aligned with the target’s path. The last entry on Volume II is Volume Cube. You simply define a volume in space and specify objects, quantity, and velocity. From there, the utility builds a scene containing the objects bouncing around with a constant velocity inside that area. The Laws of Physics Einstein never had it so good! Opportunity With Learning (OWL) has just released its new educational physics software, Physics Laboratory in Mechanics. This multimedia program teaches kinematics, rotational kinematics, dynamics, statics, universal gravitation, work and energy, and impulse and momentum. An interactive lab notebook allows students to simulate 21 different physics experiments, offering instructions on how to perform the experiments using everyday objects. Also included are history, math, and unit reference sections. Requires Amiga- DOS 2.0 or later, 2MB of RAM, and a hard disk. Commodore Watch Developments in the Commodore liquidation proceedings took a new turn as this issue of AW was going to press when it was reported that another group had entered the bidding process. Although not officially confirmed by the Court-appointed trustees, it appears that a proposal was received from a German-based group comprised of former officials of the now-defunct Commodore Germany and Commodore Netherlands subsidiaries (with rumored backing from Australian financial interests). This eleventh-hour bid represents a somewhat bizarre twist in the legal proceedings, since the trustees supervising the liquidation were under a deadline of October 15 to make their recommendations to the Bahamian Supreme Court. The Court was then supposed to render its decision and announce the winning bid although no time limit had been set as to when that decision had to be reached. Meanwhile, the two groups that have publicly acknowledged their bids the former management team of Commodore UK, headed by David Pleasance, and CEI of Florida, under the direction of Alex Amor both remained confident of success. During two lengthy online conferences at the beginning of October, Amor graciously fielded questions from all comers and outlined in great detail his plans for Amiga development under CEI ownership. Pleasance, also brimming with plans, held meetings in half a dozen countries to discuss the relaunch of the Amiga spearheaded by his company. DS This month, Tyson Knowles wrote and compiled Overscan. Send your news and press releases to Overscan, Amiga- World Editorial, PO Box 802, 80 Elm St., Peterborough, NH 03458-0802, or via e-mail to record@dv.com. N e ws and New Pro ducts Automatic Backup How many hours have you toiled replacing lost or deleted information? With MultiVol Mirror ($ 45), data re-entry is a thing of the past. This new frle-back-up software from AugmenTek "mirrors" a file to one or more devices every time you or your software saves it. Then, you can retrieve it automatically if the original is deleted, overwritten, or lost due to system error or simply a mispressed button. Featuring a graphical interface with online help (and a command line), MultiVol Mirror works with any device, including the console. Thus, you can even record shell I O to document your actions for future reference. MultiVol Mirror requires AmigaDOS 2.04 or later. Guide to the Galaxy Trying to find the quickest route to the information superhighway? Dale Larson's Connect Your Amiga! A Guide to the Internet. LANs, BBSs and Online Sendees ($ 24.95, Intangible Assets) may be just the "map” you need. The reference book (ISBN 1 - 885876-02-5) covers the ins and outs of accessing the Internet, as well as advice on buying telecommunications software and hardware. It also takes a look at popular networking hardware and software to get your Amiga linked to Pcs and Macs. Net Results Canadian Prototype Replicas announces the release of TCP IP Internet Networking Software 2.1 (S150). Configuring and maintaining the TCPIP Base Kit is now just a matter of pointing and clicking, thanks to the package's new TCPIPConfig utility. And you can now specify choices using real names instead of the oblique IP numbers many other platforms require. TCPIPConfig creates and maintains all database and startup-script files and converts such things as host names to their IP host addresses when necessary. Version 2.1, which requires a SANA-ll device driver and Workbench 2.0, also includes an Rlogin command that supports Workbench, configuration files, function keys, and Arexx. Take Your Pics Photography comes home to the Amiga with Legendary Technologies* four-volume series of photographic clip art, ProPics. Available in individual 20- image volumes ($ 39.95), or as a complete 80-image set ($ 129.95), every digital image included is royalty- free. Each package also includes installation software, manuals with thumbnail previews of the photographs, and Proimage, an image-processing program. For textures with a twist (sometimes literally!), try Precision Computer Graphics* Moving Textures 100 ($ 249). Made up of 22 image sequences on a CD-ROM and a videocassette, this package lets you add to your animations realistic natural phenomena such as clouds, fire, smoke, and water. Each sequence contains 300, 600, or 900 ready-to-use IFF frames and can be implemented by any program that can handle image sequences. Moving Textures 100 has been tested with Aladdin Update Scan
4. 0, Imagine 3.0, Lightwave 3D 3.1, Real 3D, Art Department Professional, (using FRED) and ImageFX (using the IMP hook); of these only Imagine cannot use sequences directly off of the DC. OctaMED Pro owners will soon find themselves "back at the books," The music sequencer and composition program is already equipped with on-line help, but for those who prefer a traditional "hardcopy" manual, the OctaMED Professional Manual ($ 34.95, DevWare) promises to be the definitive tutorial and reference guide for OctaMED musicians. DevWare, by the way, is picking up distribution of Dr. T's KCS 3.5, Level II, Copyist DTP, and Tiger Cub music sequencers. Heifner Communications has just announced Pegger 2.0, an update to its JPEG-compression software. New features include a 200% speed increase in file conversion of IFF 24-bit files and the ability to relate the SNOOP function (which automatically compresses and decompresses files) to particular programs. Pegger 2.0 also works across networks and has been tested with ParNet, Enlan DFS, and Oxxi's Novell client software. IMAGETECTS puls the beauty of the world’s flora online with ImageCELs Hi-Res Botannicals. The 32-bit EGA liles provide alpha-channel masking for superior quality over fractal or procedural plants, l he collection now covers several hundred species of plants, ranging from trees to annuals to indoor plants, of all climates and through all seasons. Eventually, it will encompass all commercially grown species on the planet ImageCELs are available at $ 10 each through DesigNetwork, a free online service. (You can download GIF thumbnails of each file free of charge.) Each one comes with detailed information on the plant, plus the pixel height, the width, and more. MetroGrafx's upgraded particle-anima- tion software, Sparks 2.1, features motion interpolation, a pointable nozzle, animat- able velocity, moving targets, random rotations, explode models, and auto-parenting and -loading. Want more? There are also scores of effects, tumbles, and bounces. Besides that, the package includes new documentation and tutorials. Sparks 2.1 retails for SI79.95; current owners can upgrade for $ 45 plus $ 5 shipping and handling. Blevins Enterprises has added more dimensions to its 3-D digitizing system for NewTek's LightWave software. Verti- Sketch 1.1 ($ 2395) features new lofting commands to rapidly create polygons without splines or patches, point selection with the digitizer's probe (instead of the mouse), and a point-snap mode to automatically detect duplicate points and revert to the original. A free upgrade is available for registered users. ¦ Ainigtt 11 odd 5 ''-C *- 4 f ” Denny on DOS HINTS & TIPS FOR MASTERING THE OPERATING SYSTEM HP* j a By Denny Atkin 7 AmigaDOS 3.1 The Amiga’s biggest strength has always been its operating system. In 1985, it was die most advanced OS available on personal computers, offering multitasking years before it became popular on the PC or Macintosh. AmigaDOS 2.04 then introduced a more attractive user interface as well as manv much-needed J improvements, and all previous Arnigas could be retrofitted with this new version. When AmigaDOS 8.0 rolled around, however, it was available only on the new A1200 and A4000; owners of classic Amigaswere told they’d have to wait for 3,1, which would include some code to make the new operating system work better on machines with the original custom chip set. But before 3.1 could lie released, CBM declared bankruptcy. You can’t keep a good operating system down, though. The German company Village Tronic had made arrangements to sell a licensed version of AmigaDOS 3.1, and despite Commodore’s situation the company released the upgrade this summer. Expert Services picked up the North American distribution rights, and it’s now available to most Amiga owners, (Software Hut now distributes 3.1 upgrade kits, too.) I’ll deal here with what 3,1 includes and what’s involved in the upgrade process; next month I’ll go into more detail regarding some of 3.1’s new features. Chipping In The main components of AmigaDOS 3.1 are a new ROM chip containing Kick- start 3.1, the six disks that make up Workbench 3.1, and a very nice set ol maim- als covering AmigaDOS, Workbench, and Arexx. Because of differences in the ROMs for various Amigas, there are three different 3.1 packages: one for the A500 and A2000. One for the A3000, and one for the A4000. Amiga 1000 owners can use the A500 2000 version with a ROM adapter such as DKB s Kwickstart II. Mysteriously, there’s no Quick Tip AmigaDOS 3.1 supports synchronous SCSI transfers on the Amiga 3000. If your drive can handle these, you’ll see speedier disk transfers. If it can’t, however, you’li get a lockup when you try to boot your system. Before installing 3.1 ROM chips in an A3000, you should make sure you disable the sync-transfer bit in battery-backed memory. To do this, you’ll need a public-domain utility like Battmem or SCRAMmer, which are available on online networks and many BBS systems. ROM available for Amiga 1200 owners; t hey can use the 3.1 Workbench disks with Kickstart 3.0, but there’s currently no way for them to upgrade to Kickstart 3.1. Amiga 600 owners are completely out of luck; the only version of Kickstart ever created for that machine was
2. 05, and WB 3.1 needs at least Kickstart 3.0 to function. Installing the operating system is relatively simple, as long as you’re comfortable with replacing a chip on your computer’s motherboard. It’s not a difficult procedure. The trickiest parts are trying not to bend the pins on the chips and trying not to cut yourself when removing components. (I'll always remember upgrading my A4000, thanks to the scar on my linger from removing the processor daughterboard.) Hist follow very carefully the
• i instructions included with the upgrade, make sure that all the chips are oriented properly, and above all take your time and be patient. If you’re an A30Q0 user, be particularly careful when installing that version, as the sockets for the two ROMs in some machines are labeled backwards; follow the instructions included with the upgrade, and all will be well. If you’re not comfortable with the procedure, though, you'd better let a dealer or technical friend perform the upgrade for you, as replacement Amiga motherboards are now rare. Why Buy? Should you upgrade to AmigaDOS 3.1? If you use your Amiga for more than just games, absolutely. How big an improvement you’ll see depends on which operating system you’re currently running. If your machine is now equipped with Kickstart
1. 3 or earlier, installing 3.1 will make it perform like an entirely new computer, with a new interface, better performance, and tons of new capabilities. AmigaDOS 2.04 users will see many new improvements, such as the ability to read and write MS- DOS disks, language support, PostScript printing, better font support in some applications, IFF Workbench backdrops, and more. With 2.1, the improvements are more subtle, but some of them such as dramatically faster Workbench graphics updates and support lor file datatypes will make the upgrade worthwhile. Users of Amigas equipped with the original chip set and graphics cards such as the Picasso II will find 3,1 well worth the money, as it will let them run most OS-legal programs such as Page- Stream 3.0, Professional Page
4. 1, Final Writer, and SimLife AGA in 256 colors. The decision is tougher for Amiga 4000 owners. The
3. 1 release does offer some improvements over 3.0, including built-in CD-ROM drive support, more datatypes (including ANIM and GDXL), and new monitor drivers that allow larger overscan values and eliminate black borders in most cases. There are also numerous fixes of subtle bugs. Amiga 1200 owners can use the disks with Kickstart
3. 0, thus taking advantage of many of the improvements, including the new datatypes and CD-ROM driver. But some ROM- based enhancements, such as larger screen sizes, won’t be available until someone releases a 3.1 Kickstart designed for the A1200. ¦ Denny Atkin is author of the hook Denny Atkin’s Best Amiga Tips and Secrets.

Time marches on, and we hope to see a resolution soon. Guide Your Way If you’ve been using your Amiga long enough to know the parent company is in liquidation, then you’re probably also aware of the handy hypertext system, Amiga-Guide, by David Junod. A staple with many users, .AmigaGuide serves as an all-purpose text handler, with exemplary online support in the form of accessory files. AmigaGuide’s simplicity masks its power. It works by linking together sets of related documents, which in turn contain references to other documents. When you open a document (either a text file or a database) in the AmigaGuide environment, it displays an Intuition window complete with a scroll bar, interactive buttons, and pulldown menus. .AmigaGuide uses Dynamic Nodes, a hypertext document that’s generated in real time for viewing and manipulating, The helpful documentation that accompanies the most recent version
(34. 11) of the AmigaGuide.- library and its related files (AmigaGuide v34.3 and A 1)2AG v39.2) contains sample code for adding an AmigaGuide interface to your own applications, as well as examples of controlling AmigaGuide via Arexx. There are several PD solutions that help in creating AmigaGuide documents and databases. One is Hed- dley vl.O, an editor by Edd Dumbill that uses an Intuition interface and Arexx port to speed the process along. You point-and-click to define buttons on the text, which greatly simplifies the otherwise tedious process. Another is Mike Yaunl&h's giftware program, HelpBook vl.O, which lets you create AmigaGuide documents without having to learn AmigaGuide programming codes. HelpBook also automatically alphabetizes all buttons a nice touch. Another helpful program in the public domain is Stephan Siiiken’s Text2- Guide, recently upgraded to v3.1. As its name implies, this CLI-based program converts text into AmigaGuide format. Its documentation is fairly cryptic, but as long as you know the basics of how the program works and divide your text document into r' units (separated by dots), it's a fairly straightforward process. Another text-to- AmigaGuide utility is AmigaGuide Writer vl.03. a shareware program by David McPaul that reads and writes a variety of AmigaGuide commands. A GUI interface makes it easier to use than Text2Guide. When von want to reverse j the process and convert AmigaGuide files into text files, the freely distributable Ag2txt by Jason R. Hulance does the job nicely. The archive consists of two files: Ag2txll3 for AmigaDOS 1.3 holdouts, and Ag2txt20 for
2. 0 and later users. The program is written in E, so you’ll need to gel your hands on an Amiga E compiler if you intend to tweak anv of 4 i the included source code. PrintGuide, a program by John j. Bolton, lets you print AmigaGuide files by filtering out all the AmigaGuide commands. There’s even an AmigaDOS 3.0-or- later AmigaGuide-based manual browser by Christian Stieber that lets you use t AmigaGuide to browse through a directory tree. You just click on a directory to enter it and click on a file to view it, all from within AmigaGuide. More AmigaGuide Online You mav have heard of The j Big Dummy’s Guide to the Internet, published by The Electronic Frontier Foundation. Now, two enterprising individuals, Adam GafTin and Joerg Heitkoetter, have taken it upon themselves to provide us with an Amiga- Guide version.

We needed cost-effective video encoding decoding, non-linear editing, as well as low-cost single-frame recording. Vlab Motion promised to do all this while delivering developer support features unavailable or cost- prohibitive on our OS 2, Windows, and Macintosh Systems, immediately after we installed our first Vlab Motion and booted up we realized we'd received much more than we expected. Since then we've learned that at Caribbean Multimedia Solutions, Inc., we can always depend on the Noahjis Customer Support ream.

2. X 3.x compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Accelerator compatible. MacroSystem; distributed by NoahJi’s, S1750; S2150 with Toccata sound card Full-motion JPEG video card. Installation: Easy. Minimum system: 2MB fast RAM, 20 + MB hard-drive partition. Recommended system: 68040 accelerator, dedicated 100 +MB SCSI hard drive, video input device. Even casual observers of the Amiga market have no doubt heard of MacroSy.stem’s J PEG video board, Vlab Motion. Coupled with software called MovieShop, it digitizes video in real time for playback from your hard drive. Vlab Motion inputs and outputs S-YHS, CVBS (composite NTSC) or PAL video signals via its RCA and S-YHS DIN connectors. Incoming video loops out and can be viewed and recorded to your hard drive or to videotape. Vlab Motion also imports and plays rendered 3-D frames, in some cases eliminating the need for a single-frame controller. JPEG Motions The early production version of the Vlab Motion package I received crashed frequently. Insufficient documentation (later corrected) led me to believe the problems were due to options and menus not covered in the manual. When maladies persisted, Noahji's sent another board. Although the new one digitized nicely, playbacks immediately crashed my A4000. I reinstalled the first board, tightened some loose chips, and, whenever it crashed, turned off my .Amiga to let it cool down, as the board seemed to be heat-sensitive. When Vlah didn't crash, the A4000’s stock IDE drive could sustain a remarkable eight l(> ten sec- onds of video playback or recording at 50% JPEG quality, using an 8MB RAM buffer and a 640x480 image. Coupled with a fast SCSI controller and hard drive, the board generates superb footage, with top-notch image quality. I would challenge anyone to distinguish the original footage from Vlab Motion’s digital-video output at only 50% |PEG quality. The board operates in YUV (4:2:2) mode, which To locate the vendors of the products reviewed, see the "Manufacturers' Distributors' Addresses" list on p. 27. Allows the software to do color keying of the incoming video, with the video being played back from the hard drive. A duo of U and V color sliders adjust the transparent color. Because it lacks any form of timecode, however, Vlab’s output doesn’t readily lend itself to seamless integration into professional editing systems. Back at the (Movie)Shop I he included MovieShop software controls Vlab and also provides editing functions for creating a Scene a series of frames. Multiple Scenes constitute a Project, and only one Project can be open at a time. All the Scenes for the current Project are written to a specially formatted hard-drive partition. Opening a new Project reformats the partition, thus creating space for new Scenes. Be careful, though: Unless you’ve saved the Scenes elsewhere, all stored footage is lost. You can save the Scenes on the Vlab partition to any Amiga DOS storage device as a file a nice touch. You can then reload any of these Scenes into your current Project, a process that writes the Scene back onto the special Vlab partition for playback. In essence, the partition works like a fast-RAM buffer. Because vou can store your Scene files any- where, the only ones that need to reside on the special partition are those in use. To edit with MovieShop, simply slide through the Scene to the first frame and click the Set Start button. Then slide to the last frame and click Cut, Copy or Delete. You can then slide to any frame and paste the copied footage. You can export or import the cut or copied footage (or any images you grab with Vlab) as IFF Deep, IFF II.BM, PPM, or Sunraster files. I like the simplicity of the editing system. You can rearrange whole Scenes in any order by using your mouse in the Scenes window (or in the Movie List) to grab their names and move them. Moving is also easily accomplished between the Movie List, the Scene window, and the Clipboard window. Furthermore, you can group Scenes, and even group groups of Scenes a second time into a hierarchy. Toccata Tunes, Too Vlab Motion plugs into any free Zorro slot and converts your Amiga into a JPEG-animatlon powerhouse. MacroSystem’s Toccata 16-bit sound board was included with my package, as the company claims you can create and play back digitized sound with digitized video. I installed Toccata, then tried to back up 200 LightWave frames to DAT tape, using my copy of Ami-Back, but my Amiga would lock up and crash, reporting illegal SCSI phase errors. Suspecting the Vlab board, I removed it. Three frustrating days later, still wrestling to back up the liles, I removed the Toccata audio board; the Ami- Back problems vanished, and my tape backups operated as smoothly as ever. When I later reinstalled the Toccata hoard, I could indeed digitize sound with the video, but the sound output was delayed when played back with the video. This could be attributed to the slow speed of my drives, but regardless of the cause, the machine always locked up midstream. On another note, the MovieShop program supports Arexx, but it neglects to mention this in the manual. There is an option called “FRED list (frames)”in the Import Image window that apparently uses Arexx to handle FREI) scripts from Art Department Professional. Best In Class Noahji’s new MovieShop version 1.2 of the software began shipping just as this review was going to press. With support for editing Toccata audio files together with video, this software breathes new life into Vlab Motion with character generation as well as new video special effects. While Vlab Motion is a little rough around the edges, hear in mind that no other computer product on any platform offers digitizing and playback of real-time 30-fps video, with flawless image quality for under $ 2000. As a new product, both the software and hardware suffer from some teething problems, but Vlab Motion shows enormous potential, and with Noahji’s helpful customer service and quick response to problems, this is a worthwhile video investment.

L. x 2.x 3.x compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Accelerator compatible. Installation; Easy. Minimum system: 512K. Recommended system: 1MB, sound utilities, stereo amplifier. Low-cost Amiga sound-enhancement device. There’s nothing wrong with the Amiga’s standard 8-bit stereo sound. It holds its own when compared to some other computers and requires no investment in additional hardware. When you’re ready to give Amiga music a little boost, just add a sound card or cartridge a piece of hardware that improves the sound and provides audio- digitizing capabilites and the results are usually exemplary. That raises die next question: Which sound device is right for you? For an alternative to low-cost sound cartridges, consider Contraption Industries’ Audio Expander for the Amiga. Not exactly brimming with either technology or options such as sound digitizing, the low-buck Audio Expander is an external box that improves the sound output of your Amiga. It connects using a custom serial-port adapter and requires that you supply your own two-in and two-out phono-jack sound cables. Connection Details Although three disks of software accompany it, this is a stand-alone product: Other than some sound files, no special software is necessary. Getting started involves plugging the Audio Expander’s combination serial adapter power cable into the Amiga’s serial port. Right away, two issues arise: One, turn the adapter around and it plugs into the parallel port as readily as it does into the ? R k v i r: w s serial port. Second, whenever any device occupies the serial port, I worry that other serial devices may he ad- vcrscly affected. Thankfully, my external modem connected to the pass-thru end of the Audio Expander remained oblivious to its presence. In my haste to use the Audio Expander, I inadvertently plugged its serial adapter into the parallel port and the printer cable into the adapter’s pass- thru. The unit’s red activity light didn’t illuminate, indicating all was not well. Fortunately, no Fireworks resulted and nothing was the worse for wear. With the serial adapter in the proper port, I connected the ends of two phono cables to the Amiga’s left and right audio-output jacks and the other ends to the audio-in jacks on the Audio Expander. The unit’s two outputs were routed into an amplifier, in this case an old Quasar boombox reserved for beach days and just such occasions. Because the output is boosted a fair amount over slock, you should heed Contraption Industries’ advice not to use a monitor. While they seem to work well, monitor speakers can’t handle the boosted wattage from the Audio Expander. A 15-watt or higher boom box or an old stereo receiver works wonders. Beautiful Music Once you’ve made all the connections correctly, you’re ready to put the unit to the lest. Left- and right-gain controls on the front let you adjust the amount of output on the two channels. For best results, I found that less truly is more; i.e., the lower the gain, the better the sound quality. The three accompanying disks provide some MOD-format music modules for testing the Audio Expander’s sound output. A digitized Elvis parody, where he’s singing his favorite song as if he forgot the words, is particularly entertaining. Ihe sound quality is improved quite a bit, with powerful bass and note clarity. On the negative side, the first unit I received arrived sans any documentation (the two-page manual arrived later), which accounts for die mistake I made in connecting the unit to the wrong port. A sticker on the serial adapter itself with connection instructions would help. Your favorite MODs, games, music, and system beeps get a powerful boost that’s sure to anger eveiy parent in the household. Ihe sound is clear and crisp, providing an improvement over the stock audio output. Tis the season to be holiday gift shopping, so you might want to consider this inexpensive, useful little device for the Amiga enthusiast on your list. Tim Walsh TypeSmith 2.5 Soft-Logik Publishing, $ 199.95 All Amigas.
2. X 3.x compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Accelerator compatible. Minimum system: 2MB. Recommended system: 68020 or faster processor, multisync monitor, hard drive, 2MB chip RAM, PostScript laser printer. Font-design and-management software. TypeSmith 2.5 is the latest incarnation of the sole commercial font- management package for the Amiga. A most useful tool in any Amiga graphics- art ist’s grab bag, TypeSmith 2.5 provides some of the features most often requested by users of the original package. New Fonts The big news is that 2.5 includes new Mac and PC TrueType font support. Another new format is TypeSmith IFF RFF, designed for use in creating your fonts. Continually saving and reloading TypeSmith 2.5’s work area Is logically arranged. In CompuGraphic or TrueType formats is slow and can double the number of points used in each character. Using IFF RFF format eliminates this problem. Converting fonts from one format to another can add points as well. Some fonts have so many points and are so complex that many programs can’t print them. The new Reduce Points feature, which replaces the Arexx macro of 2.0, eliminates excess points. TypeSmith 2.5 also lets you convert whole directories from any combination of supported formats to any other format through an included Arexx macro. Though the feature works as promised, it can be a tad slow. As it works unassisted, however, you can set it up to convert a large directory while you sleep. New Paths Another new feature prints complete character sets. Selecting Print Preview from the Project menu in the Overview panel dumps an entire character set to your printer, complete with ascii character labels. In addition, you can now edit the actual character names. Whereas some large-scale fonts were originally designed in em-squares too large for earlier versions of TypeSmith to load, 2.5 now scales such fonts to fit in its em- square without any loss of image quality. In some fonts, correcting the path direction for character fills used to be a painful process involving the Clockwise and Counterclockw ise commands. Now, the Correct Path menu items perform this automatically for a single character or a complete font. TypeSmith 2.5 also offers a global control over the “blue zones” of PostScript fonts, and the hinting algorithms for all of the other formats have been improved. You can select between PFB and ASF. Encoding when saving a PostScript font. Other Improvements TypeSmith 2.5 includes a utility for convening ProDraw structured drawings into the IFF DR2D format that TypeSmith recognizes. Also, the online help system works on any Amiga with 2.04 or later. Just hit the Help button on the keyboard to access it. If you have AmigaDOS
3. 0 or later, the help system displays the file corresponding to the location of the mouse and offers status-panel prompts at the bottom of the screen. Otherwise, you get the main help screen and have to select the appropriate item. You can now change the composition of many characters using the Next and Previous buttons from within the Edit Compositions w indow without having to close the window each time to select a different character. You can import both PostScript PFA and the more common PFB files. Since Final Writer converts NimbusQ files to PostScript PFA files, TypeSmith 2.5 now lets you convert NimbusQ fonts to PostScript fonts and, from there, to the other supported font formats. Despite improvements, you still cannot use the PostScript driver included with AmigaDOS 2.x. Most programs don’t seem to have a problem with the admittedly quirky driver from Commodore, but TypeSmith 2.5 still trashes the system if you attempt to use it. Continued on p. 42.

* mnng iheir oilier virtues, Amiga com- puter owners are extremely easy to shop lor. Computers always seem to A W> need a new piece of software, some hardware enhancement, or that absolutely necessary accessory. Since Amiga products come in all price ranges from a two-dollar mousepad to a iwo-thou- sand-dollar icleo Toaster board it’s pretty easy to lind a gift that will be appreciated. We’re sticking to the lower end of the price spectrum to help you find something that’s affordable as well as useful (almost all of our gift suggestions are under $ 200, with most SI00 or less}, but you'd be surprised at how much is available to the budget-conscious shopper. Prices of computer peripherals and other products have fallen dramatically during tlie past twelve months, which means that this year your gift dollar will go further titan ever before. While some items listed in the guide are quoted at tlie manufacturer's suggested retail price, others reflect “street-price” costs and require some fairly easy comparative shopping among local dealers, mail-order houses, or other equipment sources. The developers of all products in the guide are included in the text; to contact them, consult the “Manufacturers' Distributors’ Addresses’' list on p.
27. Mail-order outlets for Amiga products can be found in advertisements in AmigaWorld and other Amiga magazines. ? Hardware Upgrades any of the most startling price reductions have come in this category. If you’ve checked in the past on the price of adding, say, more memory, a larger hard drive, or a faster modem and found them too expensive, it may he time to check again. Many items vou mav have con- n sidered extravagant before might suddenly seem more practical now. Memory Upgrades Is your favorite Amiga owner still struggling with one or two megabytes of RAM? These days, RAM is selling for about $ 40 to $ 50 per megabyte. That means you can add four megabytes to a system such as the A3000 or A1000, both of which have sockets for additional chips, for well under $ 200. Even if you have a machine like the A1200, which doesn’t have sockets for additional RAM, you can find expansion boards like DKB's DKB 1202 and Para- vision's 1200Z for a little over $ 100 without RAM, and well under $ 200 with a megabyte of RAM. In (act. You can buy the DKB 1228 accelerator board, which adds a 28-MHz 68030 processor as well as RAM sockets for under $ 200. Most A2000 and A500 RAM cards are Paravision 1200Z still available, and they are more affordable than ever. GVP's A4008 card for the A2000, for example, provides both a SCSI drive interface and RAM expansion for about SI50, while Expansion System's DataFlyer RAM card sells for under $ 200 with 2MB of RAM. For A2000 and A500 owners who need more chip RAM, DKB still sells the MegAChip board, which adds a megabyte of graphics memory for under $ 200. Hard Drives Most of the original Amiga hard drives were in the 40-100MB range, but these days large hard drives are so cheap that it is almost impossible to find one that small! With 500- megabyte IDE and SCSI drives selling in the $ 300 price range, I've seen some good closeout values on 300-meg drives for around $ 200, and you may still find 40 100MB drives for as low as $ 100. I hat spells an inexpensive storage bonanza for Amiga computers that come with a hard-drive controller (such as the A600, A1200, A3000, and A4000). For models that don’t (like the A2000 or A500), it shouldn't take more than about $ 150 or so to add a controller such as Expansion System's DataFlyer SCSI or IDE, or GFP’s A4008, mentioned above. Printers Not too many years ago, the least expensive 9-pin dot-matrix printer would set you back almost S300. Lately, however, such printers as the Panasonic KXP-1150 and Star NX-1001 have been selling in the $ 120 range, with sale prices dipping below $ 100. These days, no Amiga owner need exist without a printer. If you are willing to spend between $ 150-200, the choices expand rapidly. Vou can move up to a 24-pin dot-matrix printer like the Panasonic KXP-1123 (with the option to add color later on) or a laser-qualily inkjet printer such as the Epson Stylus 300. (Don’t expect, however, to find a color inkjet printer like the Cannon BJ- 4000, or a laser printer like the Oki- data 400, for much less than $ 500.) Modems With so much media attention focused on the “information superhighway,” many computer owners want to find out what all the fuss is about. Multifunction modems make a great gift because not only do they open the door to bulletin boards, information services, and the Internet, but they also function as highspeed fax machines. Last year, an external 14,400-bps modem with fax capabilities cost almost $ 300. Currently, however, name-brand models from companies such as Hayes, US Robotics, and Supra (such as the 144LC) are selling in the $ 140 price range, and you may be able to find lesser-known brands for under $ 125. Even if you spring for fax software (which is currently in the $ 60 range), your entire purchase will remain well below $ 200. Higii-Density Floppy Drives Although high-density 3.5-inch floppy drives have been the computer- industry standard for a couple of years now, only the Amiga 4000 comes with them as standard equipment. You can remedy this situation, however, with the gif t of a high-density floppy drive. DKB sells external high-density drives for all Amiga models, and internal drives for the A2000, A3000, and A4000, for under $ 150. In addition to doubling your floppy storage capacity (to 1.76MB per disk), these drives allow your emulator programs to read and write IBM and Macintosh high-density floppy disks, making them an absolute necessity for those who wish to exchange data between the Amiga and other computers. CD-ROM Drives CD-ROM drives are becoming more and more popular on the Amiga as a way of distributing mass quantities of sof tware and data for a very low price. While the newest triple-speed and quad-speed drives cost upwards of $ 300, older single- and double-speed drives have really dropped in price. About the only thing these drives won't do well is to play movies oil’of the CD. Since there are almost no programs for the Amiga that do that anyway, what is a liability in the IBM world is a buying opportunity for Amiga owners and their cost-conscious friends. 1 personally use a single-speed NEC CDR-25 drive and am quite satisfied with its performance. These drives (and other single-speed models) are currently selling in the $ 125 price range, and fve seen external SCSI CD-ROM drives at computer shows for as little as $ 70. In fact, at least one mail-order house offers the NEC drive with Amiga driver softDKB Power XL High-Density Drive ware and a couple of Cds for $ 130. For an Amiga owner whose computer already has a SCSI interface, that's a gift bargain almost too good to pass up. Audio Digitizers Every Amiga has the capability of playing back high-quality digital sound effects and music. In order to record them, however, you need an audio digitizer, an interface that allows you to plug in a microphone or stereo system, 't hese handy little gadgets have never cost much more than $ 100, hut lately, prices have dropped even further. You can pick up GVP's DSS8-F for about $ 70 or Oregon Research's Megalosound for only S40. Both include the software needed to record sounds on the Amiga, Software Galore z here are many great bargains « y on the software side of the scale, too. Software of all kinds from ope rati ng-sysiem upgrades to to graphics and productivity programs to CD-ROM collections- is available at very attractive prices. Workbench 3.1 Upgrade When Workbench 3.0 first came out, it was available only for the A1200 and A4000. By early ’94, however, Commodore had completed a 3.1 version that lets owners of most Amigas upgrade to the latest opcrating-system version. Expert Services obtained a license to distribute this upgrade, and is selling complete kits that include a new Kickstart ROM, Workbench disks, and manuals. Pricing for the A500 2000 version is $ 125, while the A3000 4000 version sells for $ 150. Software Hut also provides 3.1 upgrades, with packages for the A500 2000 at $ 159.95 and the A3000 4000 at $ 179.95. Applications Software Graphics software has always been popular on the Amiga, and now there are a couple of outstanding values in that category. Black Belt System's Imagemaster R t, widely acclaimed for its powerful image-processing functions, is available for about $ 70. Digital Creations' Brilliance provides a powerful alternative to long-time paint and animation champ DeluxePaint, and, with the recently released version
2. 0 priced at under $ 80, this powerful package is about 40% less expensive. One category of software that scores big during the holidays is genealogy software. All those family get-togethers probably stir an urge to find out just how all of those people are related. Norris Software's Norgen program is the low-cost leader at about $ 50, while MVP1 s Your Family Tree, for about $ 80, offers optional GEDCOM support. Personal-record-keeping software also goes down well around New Year’s, as computer owners make resolutions to become more organized. Checks Sc Balances from AmiSoft promises to keep its owner’s finances in balance, and, at about $ 40, is kind to the gifi-giver’s checkbook, as well. Legendary Design Technologies' Address It! (also about $ 40) manages all the names and addresses you can throw at it and produces mailing lists and labels in many formats. Know somebody with a yen for home improvement? HomeBuilders CAD from DevWare is a mere $ 35. And for a Real Saver ., , The holidays are also a time for programs that don’t do a lot, but are a lot of fun. Screen savers fall into that category, and one of the newest ones is D esktop Magic, a $ 30 animated screen saver and sound manager from MediaDesk. It not only comes with a number of customizable screen modules, but it also allows you to assign sound effects or music tracks to system events such as inserting or ejecting a disk. CD-ROM Collections For the biggest software bonanza, look to the many software collections on CD-ROM. Walnut Creek's Aminet Amiga CD-ROM at $ 25 (a collection of freely distributable software from the Internet) and the Fred Fish Collection (available from HyperMedia Concepts for $ 75) are two outstanding software libraries available in lliat format. Each volume contains literally thousands of the best noncommercial games, utilities, and applications programs. For the avid game fan, the Lock-n-Load disc from Northwest ? Public Domain (about S20) has almost every freely distributable game you can think of. For the demo enthusiast, the Euroscene and Demo Cds are loaded with flashy animations and wild music. If you know an Amiga owner who is interested in music, the Ultimate MOD Collection CD from Sunset Productions (about $ 25) includes more than 700 songs. For the 3-D enthusiast, Syndesis has come out with a second 3D ROM disc filled with noncommercial 3-D objects in a wide variety of formats, and it has dropped the price of both the First and second discs to SI00 each. A Holiday Miscellany booking for a lower-priced gift? There’s a multitude of small accessories that won’t set you back a lot but are still useful or at least fun. Of Mice and Mouse Accessories In addition to spawning a lot of bad jokes, the computer mouse has also inspired an entire industry. There are replacement mice in the $ 20-30 range, including Alpha Data's Mega Mouse and Alicro R&D's Pyramid Swifty. Or try a mouse substitute, such as Alfa Data's Crystal Trackball (about $ 50). There are also switch boxes that allow you to plug in your mouse and joystick at the same time (the Alfa Data automatic switch is about $ 20). How about acessories lor accessories? Staticide makes a mouse- cleaning kit for about $ 11, and you can
o > also get a mouse holder for about $ 5. There are even covers that allow you to disguise your mouse’s appearance from l he ACI Mouse House (about $ 5), which makes it look like an actual felt rodent, to the Auto Mouse (SI5), which converts it into a model Corvette. A mousepad, too, makes an inexpensive but useful gift. On a recent trip through computer chain stores, I turned up a couple of dozen types from a $ 2 plain pad to a $ 4 pad with my college logo on it, and all the way to a deluxe $ 14 Star Trek model. Safe and Clean Since computers hate dirt, there a lots of cleaning products to consider, from a $ 6 floppy-head cleaning kit to a 520 battery-operated vacuum cleaner. Or you can avoid dirt with a plastic dust cover, ranging in price from a S5 generic square model to more expensive custom jobs like the Safeskin (Merritt Computer Products) covers made especially for Amiga keyboards (under $ 20). II 0 I. I D A Y G I r I f, li I I) E Another popular item is the surge protector, which ranges in price from a $ 7 basic model to a $ 29 deluxe model with phone-line protection for a modem. For the security minded, there are disk-drive lock kits (under $ 20), while the environmentally concerned can be satisfied with a solar- calculator disk for just a couple of bucks. Reading and Watching Books, magazines, and videos always make welcome gifts. Former Commodore networking guru Dale Larson has just published a new hook entitled Connect Your Amiga! A Guide to the Internet, lANs, BBSs and Online Services ($ 25, Intangible Assets Manufacturing). For Arexx programmers, there’s Merril Callaway’s Arexx Cookbook ($ 50, Whitestone). You can even get a signed copy ofthe Amiga DOS Reference Guide, covering all AmigaDOS versions up to 3.0, directly from the author (me), for $ 12 postpaid less than half of the cover price (170 W. 12 Mile Road, Madison Ills, MI 48071). And just about any Amiga owner would appreciate a gift of one of the British disk magazines. Titles like Amiga Format, C.U. Amiga, Amiga User International, and Amiga Computing, complete with a disk or two of software, are available on many of the larger US newsstands or from mailorder houses for about $ 10.

Omi y iHtnck& Impulse's 3.0 version oe Imagine is our, and it sports some elegant new features. Here's a tutorial that leads you through some of tile INNOVATIVE, STATE-OF-THE-ART PRESTIDIGITATIONS OF THIS POWERFUL PROGRAM. By Steve Worley A few rare pieces of software have a certain quality ZJ that instills a sense of wonder in their users. Jl JL l'he program might be tricky to use or have quirky behavior, but it rewards those who persevere with a sense of accomplishment. Impulse's Imagine is this kind of program. Its three-dimensional modeling and rendering capabilities have evolved over the years, gathering a loyal following of artists and animators. This evolutionary process has now produced the long-awaited version 3.0. Magical States While the entire program was reviewed in the Sept. 94 issue (p. 18), it maybe useful here to examine in depth some of the new features and see how they work. These new abilities are proudly termed Imagiuc’s new “magic” features, but, as in mastering any new sleight- of-hancl move, it takes knowledge and practice to make it all seem effortless. Amiga World 19 New methods to deform and texture objects dominate the list of changes in this newest release. This most impressive new conjuration is the development of a feature called “States.” Previously, Imagine tended to manipulate a 3-D object as a static model with a painted surface; polygons defined a rigid structure, and most animation was performed by linking these rigid forms together with joints. This was adequate for many types of mechanical motion, but for liquid, organic movement, a different animation method was sorely needed. States represents Impulse’s solution to part of this problem; it allows you to change a model’s structure and appearance in ways that were formerly difficult or impossible for Imagine to do. ? Specifically, States provides you with the ability to create basically different configurations, or “poses,” of the same object. This might he as simple as two versions of a fishing rod. One straight and another bent. The two “states” of the rod are stored in a single file, and during rendering and animation you can choose which you want shown. You can also define animated transitions between states. Simply changing the state over time would create an animated bend in the fishing rod. 3 . 0 i s i (; i m a a i k A state not only describes the object’s geometry (the shape of its surface), hut can also define the way its sub- objects are assembled. Some objects are hierarchical, with a variety of sub-parts, and States can define the position, orientation, and size of each of these elements. This allows for animated changes such as the rotation of the crank on the reel attached to the fishing rod. In this case, the shape of the crank does not change; it just rotates without any deformation. States can describe both kinds of change, either independently or simultaneously. Realizing the Illusion Another aspect of States is perhaps even more important. This new Imagine feature allows what is usually known as “texture tacking.” When a material object changes shape, its surface obviously must move with the bend or distortion. When certain surface attributes, such as a texture or image, are mapped onto an object, it is essential for these to move with any alteration of the suiface in order to preserv e the viewer’s illusion that the object is real, and not just a computer construct. Seeing bamboo knots spaced along the surface of the fishing rod, for example, helps convince you that you’re seeing a bent rod and not a melting bar of plastic. Texture tacking is cleverly integrated into the States paradigm. Because an object remembers different versions of its state, it can use one to define its geometry, but can refer to another when specifying its surface features. For example, it is easy for Imagine to add the bamboo knots to the fishing rod when it is straight; it’s a standard surface effect (a cylindrical image wrapped about a long, narrow cylinder). It can then use its knowledge of the correspondence between dilferent states to render the surface features in a way that’s consistent with the original definition. Imagine must render each small area of the bent rod by asking itself, “Where is this same area on the straight version of the rod? Now what color is that corresponding area on the straight rod? I’ll color this little part of the bent rod the same way.” Imagine’s texture-tacking feature lends realism to the image of the rippling flag. Flapping Flags In practice, it is not difficult to use this wonderful feature. By applying surface features in one state (often the simplest configuration), you can change the object geometry any way you like, and the surface appearance will remain consistent. A useful example that is easy to perform is the appearance of a rippled flag. It is trivial to make a “perfect” flag: Merely use an image map to apply a logo or graphic to a simple rectangle. It is also easy to add ripples or waves to the flag fabric, but without texture tacking the image won’t follow along, and the effect looks wrong. The new version of Imagine enables you easily to achieve a convincingly real effect. Imagine defines deformations and surface attributes in its Detail editor. Building the fiat flag is very easy, as the program has a set of primitives that include a flat rectangle made of many small triangles. This is exactly what you want, since the small triangles let you bend the surface to make the ripples in the fabric. To produce the basic fiat flag, you use the Add Primitive menu command to tell Imagine to build an object with the properties you want. A plane of size 150x100 with 30x20 segments produces the desired rectangular shape. Mapping this with a logo image (or whatever you like) is also very easy (and identical to the way previous versions did it). Just enter the Attribute requester and add an image map (specifying your image filename). Imagine’s default image options happen to he exactly what you need in this case; the program colors the surface of the flag and even autosizes the image to lit neatly over the full surface. You can then use Imagine’s Quickrender routine to preview the object and make sure the basic setup is correct. Now think of this basic object as the “main” state of the flag. In adding ripples to the flag, you want to make sure Imagine looks at the Hag as it is currently defined when ii colors the surface, even when the fabric is later wrinkled. By selecting the option labeled “States...Create” on the States menu, you tell Imagine that the current pose is one it should remember, as there will he reference to it later. Imagine asks what information the state should store; you can have it remember the object geometry, the surface appearance, or the hierarchical pose. You want it to remember the shape and appearance, so you select the first two options. Imagine also asks for a name for the state (you might call it “Main”). Once a state is defined and labeled, you can tell Imagine to refer to that state by name when applying the image to the flag. This is easy to do. By going back to the attribute requester, you can select the applied image and click on the Info button to view (and edit) its definition. A field in this requester labeled Lock State instructs the program to use a saved state (like that you just defined and called Main) on which to base the surface attributes. By simply typing “Main” into this field, you instruct Imagine always to tack the surface attributes to the object, even when the geometry is manipulated. I S ! I t; I M A (i 1 K II . 0 Making It Fly Now that you have the basic state saved and Imagine knows to use it for the applied image map, you need to make the rippled version of the flag. There are several ways to do this all of them equally correct. Anything is allowed in manipulating the shape of the object as long as it doesn’t add or remove points to or from the object. You can manually change the position of vertices, use built-in functions to taper, twist, or shear the object, or use a new feature called Applique, which can he quite useful for certain kinds of deformations. The Applique function lets you use an image map to perturb the surface of an object, the grayscale of the image determining the amount of perturbation. To make the ripples for the flag, I used a paint program to draw some irregular gray stripes with very soft gradients in between. Drawing the “height” of the ripples in a paint program is a lot easier than manually moving vertices in Imagine’s editors. Luckily, the Applique function is simple to use; there are several controls (defining the mapping Imagine uses), but, as with the logo image previously added to the flag, the default values Imagine defines are perfect for this application. Imagine has to think for a few moments (and read the image from disk), but then a waved variant of the flat flag is produced. Again, anything you do to change the shape of your object is fine; Imagine offers a slew of manipulation methods, from magnetism to jittering, and all will work. The beauty of using States is that any shape changes you make to the geometry are acceptable, for Imagine remembers the state that it will need to properly map the surface. Surprisingly, this is all that's necessary to produce the final flag. When you defined the Main state, Imagine was told all that was needed in order to produce the correct output. You can use Imagine s Quick- render function to preview your surface. Imagine’s abilities have been refined in the 3.0 release, and the addition of States is just one of several enhancements. The evolution of this software continues, polishing the program with each iteration. Imagine dominates the hobbyist niche of 3-D graphics on the Amiga, and with the addition of new features such as States, it compares favorably in many respects even to LightWave 3D. Even more promising, Impulse has begun a new policy of quarterly software updates, which promises a regular supply of new magic. ¦ Steven Ivorley is president of Apex Software and author of the popular hook Understanding Imagine 2.0.

Inc HIO JOC.RAI‘11 III) BY Kl) 11 DICK 22 Di'cnnber 1994 ''Find' Touch The latest release of the leading Amiga word processor sports a host of impressive new features (see side bar for detailsj some of which make Final Writer 2 the rival of many full-fledged desktop-publishing programs. Here’s a hands-on DTP newsletter project to help prove the point. “M( )RF. THAN | US'I a word processor” is a description that has always characterized Softwood’s Final Writer. V With its ability to create multiple-colunin documents complete with pictures, indexes, paragraph styles, and many other elements ii approaches the power and flexibility of many Amiga desktop-publishing programs. Following the release of version 2 earlier this year, Final Writer lias staked an even greater claim to that “more than” cachet when it comes to DTP capabilities. (For a rundown of some of the new features in release 2, see the sidebar mini-review on p. 25.) Although the newsletter project outlined in this tutorial will work with any version of Final Writer, it was specifically designed with release 2 in mind. If you have an earlier version, some of the operations covered in the tutorial may not function properly. Also, while this tutorial will work with any Amiga having at least 2 MB of RAM, if you’re using an Amiga with only 2MB. You may have to run Final Writer in a lower resolution i with fewer colors in order to access all the features mentioned here. In addition, the project assumes that you’ve installed all the fonts and clip art supplied on the Final Writer distribution disks. If you have access to CompuServe or Genie, you can download the files used to create this newsletter and employ them in conjunction with the tutorial. If you don’t have access to either of these services, you can still substitute a few generic text files of your own creation. Now for our sample project: We’ll use Final Writer’s tools to create a simple four-page newsletter for a fictional company, Cheyne’s Nautical Supplies. Mr. Cheyne distributes a monthly newsletter to all of his customers, informing them of sales, promotions, and other new information. The purpose of the tutorial is not to fashion this particular newsletter in its entirety, but to give you a solid understanding of how to create any newsletter or other multicolumn publication using Final Writer, That said, feel free to improvise and change the newsletter as you wish. Laying the Foundation: Master Pages and Paragraph Styles Start Final Writer, and when the program has finished loading, select the View | Paragraph Strip | Font Style Strip menu option. This will replace the standard Final Writer tool strip with the new Font Style strip. Next, turn on the following program options: View | Show Tool Palette, View | Rulers | Top and Left, View | Page Guides j Header Footer, View | Page Guides | Columns and View | Page Guides | Edit Area. Once you’ve selected all these options, save your document under the name “NEWSLETTER.” .After you’ve saved your work, select the Lavout I j * J * Page . . . Menu option.

In the Line Settings requester that appears, select a black line with a thickness of I point and then click OK to return to the main document window. Using the left and top rulers as your guide, select the Horizontal Line button located on the tool palette to draw a continuous line starting 1.25 inches down the page at the left margin, and continuing across to the 7.5- inch mark on the top ruler. This line should stretch from the left margin to the right margin. Now create another line just under the text. Move the cursor F [ N I down the page to the 2-inch mark at the left margin, and then draw the line so that it is parallel to the line we created earlier and ends at the same location. (See Figure 3 for these results.) W Now edit the footer ol your right master page. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and draw another I- point black line, starting at 9.25 inches down the page and continuing across to end at the 7.5-inch mark the right margin. .After doing so, insert your text cursor directly below that line at about the 9.5-inch mark and type: Cheyne’s Nautical News [TAB]. Immediately after the tab, use the Edit | Insert Item | Page Number menu option to insert a page number, and then manually type another tab character. Highlight the text, assign the I leader Text style to it, and then right-justify the text. Having finished with the right master page, select the left master page and repeat the above steps. The only difference between the left and the right master pages will be the location of the page number and accompanying text in the footer. Use the format [TAB] Edit | Insert Item | Page Number, and then type Cheyne’s Nautical News. Instead of right-justifying the text, left-justify it. This will ensure that the page number will always be on the outermost edge of the page, regardless ol' what page the reader is looking at (see Figure 4). Once your work on the master pages is done, return to the main document editing screen. While you will see your editing changes for the master pages on this screen, note that you cannot do any editing here. The results of vour editing, however, appear automatically on every left and right page in the document, regardless of the document’s length. For the publication’s masthead, you won’t want to type the text directly into the document. Instead, use Final Writer’s Text Block feature to create a separate text object. To do so, click the Text Block icon found in the floating tool palette. In the Text Block requester that appears, type the words Cheyne’s deal News into the Content edit field. Then click the left button under the text-flow options. Because you want to create a distinctive masthead for the newsletter, you can use a unique size and style of font. Select die Define button to bring up the Type Specs requester, and then click (he Select button to bring up the Select Font requester. For your example, now choose the font called Quadrat_Bold_Italic that’s located in the FinalWriter - FWFonts SWOLFonts Serif directory, Returning to the Type Specs requester, enter a value of 36 into the Size edit field and then select blue as the font color. Click OK to accept the changes and return to the main document window. The text will now appear on screen, ready to be moved into the correct location. To do so, select the A* % Final Writer, Release 2 The latest version of the Amiga’s top word processor is better than ever. SO WHAT DOES Final Writer, release 2 ($ 199.95) offer that die original Final Writer didn’t? For starters, Softwood has heeded the advice of software reviewers and customers alike by adding an Undo Redo feature. You can now experiment with your document without having to worry about destroying your hard work through an ill-timed deletion or other mistake. The Redo option adds yet another layer of protection, allowing you to return to your document at the point where you were prior to selecting Undo. As mentioned in the accompanying tutorial, Softwood has also added tool palettes and a Font Style strip to the new Final Writer. With the Font Style strip, changing fonts, point sizes, and styles is as simple as pointing and clicking on the appropriate button. Instead of having to burrow through multiple menu layers to add bold, italic, or underline effects to your text, three clearly marked icons on the Font Style strip provide immediate access to those features: Simply highlight the lext you want to alter and press the requisite button. Tool palettes are movable, resizeabte program windows that allow you to add a multitude of user-defined icons without having to worry about running out of space on the main toolbar. The user-button palette can contain user- defined buttons connected to macros and other program elements, making it even easier to customize your word-processing environment to suit your needs. Palette windows will prove particularly useful because of Final Writer1 s ability to remember the size and location of any palette windows after you exit die program. When you return to the program, the palette windows will be restored to their original locations, ensuring that you’ll have a consistent program environment in which to write your Pulitzer-winning publication. Although master pages and paragraph styles were included in die initial release of Final Writer, Softwood has made both even more useful and easier to access in release 2. You can now easily select bodv, left master, or right master pages via a handy submenu in the revised View menu. Similarly, paragraph styles can now be selected more easily using the new Style palette or Font Style strip. The View menu has a number of other new additions, including menu options to hide reveal page guides, rulers, and button strips. Given the aforementioned new features (along with a few bug (ixes), it’s clear that Softwood intends Final Writer to be an evolutionary product meant to take on such PC word-processing goliaths as WordPerfect 6.0 and Microsoft Word for Windows 6.0. The fact that release 2 improves significantly upon what is an already superlative Amiga product demonstrates that Softwood is well on its way to achieving that goal. ?

To add some extra visual flair to the masthead, use the line-drawing tools to draw a pair of black lines underneath the masthead, with a space for the descending “y" to poke through (see Figure 5). Text, Pictures, and Bullets Now that you’ve finished the master pages, styles, and masthead, you can begin importing the text and graphics that will 1111 out the document. To begin with, import an eye-catching graphic for your cover, something related to the publication and the audience you’re attempting to reach. Select the Graphics | Import . . . Menu option. Double-click the Totem drawer, then select and load the anchor.epsf image. Once the image has loaded and appeared in your main document window, double-clicking the image will bring up a requester entitled Imported Graphics Settings. In this requester, change the value in the distance field from 0.125 to 0.3 inches. Select the left Vertical Text Flow button, then click OK. Move the image to the upper right of the page so it fills the top of the second and third columns. There! You’ve just successfully added a graphic to your newsletter. Now you can import some text to go along with the anchor graphic. To add text, place the cursor in the upper-left corner of the first column on the first page. Select the File | Open . . . Menu option, then use the Open Document requester to find the text you’re looking for. If you’ve downloaded the necessary7 files for this tutorial, select the LOBSTER.TXT file. Another Final Writer document window will open containing the text file. Copy the text from this new window using the Edit | Select All command, followed by Copy and paste it into the first column. When finished, close the LOBSTER.TXT document window. Now that the text has been imported, you need to format it correctly: T his is where the paragraph styles come in handy. Highlight the headline “Cheyne Nautical Wins Lobster Fry!” and then select the StoryHeader j style from the Font Style strip. Now, apply the By Line style to the byline and then the Body style to the rest of the text. (See Figure 6 for the finished result.) You’re now ready for the next piece of text. Lsing the File | Open ... menu option again, select and load the SALE.TXT text file. After the document has loaded, copy it from the SALE.TXT window and paste it immediately after the end of the lobster story on page 1. After the text is pasted, highlight the words Christmas Sale! And assign the StoryHeader style from the Font Style strip. This article consists of a short list of sale items, followed by the sale amount. Since Mr. Cheyne wants these items in a bulleted list, highlight all the items in the list and select the Layout | Effects | Bullet menu option. Congratulations! You’ve successfully completed the first page of the newsletter. With the skills you’ve learned, you should easily be able to finish the remaining pages of Cheyne’s Nautical News or any other publication of your choosing. ¦ Jeff James is Assistant Editor of the digital magazine Interactive Gaming.

While previously we looked at physical display ideas for sculptures and “installations,” now let’s focus on the computer presentation itself in such pieces. Even if you have no exhibitions planned, von mav find useful tricks to try with i your presentation software. If your computer installation is sculptural, it can be effective to repeat elements of that physical sculpture on the monitor in digital form. For example, in a recent show several of my sculptures of imaginary skulls were arranged with old photographs, chemical bottles and other details around the video viewer illustrated in “Accent” 69. The Amiga display that ran on the viewer occasionally showed close- up digitized details of the skulls. This helped unify the exhibit and added to the mystery of the physical objects. You can use image-processing software to enhance details from the sculpture or even nearby paintings. If you move vour installation to a new location, it is 4 also easy to incorporate site-specific images into the display. These techniques can control the attention of the audience to your advantage. Breaking the Rules There are many effective yet unconventional ways to use computers in an installation. Because your artistic soals J o may require techniques that are contrary to conventions about conveying information to a viewer in a corporate presentation or an information kiosk, vou mav want to reach vour audience 4 4 4 at a more intuitive, less literal level. To do this, you might simply use the computer to display sequences of fullscreen color that are seen only as re- j fleeted light within a sculpture. Or, you might just use the computer to drive an old daisy-wheel printer in an endless rattling printout. Or maybe you could play sampled sounds to add to the atmosphere of a piece. Even your image display may depart from conventional expectations. You might find that blurred images and animations best convey your idea. Don’t feel so j bound by the power and clarity of computer graphics that you lose sight of the scope of artistic options available to you. « Change and motion are two of the most powerful tools to hold the attention of your audience. A person is more likely to keep watching your display if the images move than if they are simply displayed as a slideshow. This doesn’t mean that they need to be animations in a conventional sense. They just need to change or move. For example, you can use image-processing software to create a blurred version of an image. In your installation, use your presentation software to slowly dissolve from the blurred image to the original version. This simple trick will hold the attention of the viewer as the image seems to gradually come into focus. Another trick is to have the image move across the screen as though a camera was panning it. One way to do this is to create an image larger than the screen. Lse your presentation software to grab screen-size chunks of that image from a hidden memory buffer. The accompanying illustration shows this idea on an orbital Mars photo. Each blue rectangle represents a 640x400-pixei block being grabbed from the larger image, then displayed. To someone viewing a smooth and rapid succession of these screens, it feels like an animation of the planet's surface passing across the field of view. Revealing an image gradually instead of all at once heightens the curiosity of the viewer. A Random Sense of Order For conveying a feeling of change in a display, perhaps no tool is as handy as the random-number generator in your presentation software. I employ random numbers in nearly every aspect of my computer installations. At the simplest level, you can display images in a random order to take away some of the predictability. Once you begin working with randomness, you will find more and more interesting applications. More presentation techniques for creating integrated and interesting display possibilities for your computer art. In the illustrated motion across the Mars image, each of the blue rectangles can be specified by its x and y coordinates. To achieve a straight horizontal pan over the image, you need only add a constant such as 1 to the x coordinate each time you grab a new rectangle. For a more interesting motion, you might try randomly adding -1, 0, or 4- 1 to both the x and y coordinates before each grab. This creates a meandering drift. Were you to simply add any random number to the coordinates, the changes would lack continuity- and there would be no illusion of motion. You need to constrain the randomness to a chosen range of numbers. In this case the trick is to generate random numbers zero through two, then subtract one from the result before adding it to a coordinate. Suppose you want to stack the deck in favor of having +1 crop up more often than 0 or -1? One way to do this is to generate -1,0, +1, and +2. Alter the number is generated, use a conditional to evaluate the result. Make any number greater than + 1 equal to +1. In this way, you can create movement through an image that wanders around interestingly, but travels predictably in a certain direction. You can also use a conditional to prevent moving off the screen in the course of a random walk (if x is greater than 639, then x equals 639). These techniques are very economical in terms of file size and storage space. You can create a ten-second or ten-minute random animation within an image that would be unthinkable as an animation file. This makes richer presentations possible in limited environments. You can randomize any aspect of a display that gives you access to its parameters. You can randomize color, transitions, wipe direction, text, and so on. One of the more powerful display elements you can randomize is sound play. For example, you could enhance the atmosphere of an installation with the sound illusion of a continuous storm. You might draw randomly from a pool of several wind samples, frogs, rain sounds, and so forth. Layer these 7 into the Amiga’s four audio channels at random intervals with an occasional thunder clap, and you have created a nonrepeating storm that can play for days. Sampled voices can produce very spooky results when layered randomly into all the sound channels. If you have access to sound-play parameters, you can even randomize the pitch and amplitude for infinite effects from a few samples. If your presentation software lacks some of these features, you might try using Basic or Arexx. In any case, Amiga installation sculpture can he a great option for gallery exhibition, and random numbers can break up the predictability of your display. ¦ Joel Hagen's credits include work in art, astronomy, science fiction, and software development.

TypeSmith 2.5 could benefit by having more menu items selectable from the keyboard. The program also assumes that the only place you would store Amiga bitmap fonts would be in the Fonts: directory, so it provides no way to select another directory. Iliis is unfortunate, for many of us would like to store scanned fonts in a work-iii-progress location separate from our main font drawers. Conclusions The major changes to TypeSmith 2.5 make it an even more valuable tool for font users. Most of the bugs have been fixed, and the interface has been refined and polished. It's hard to fault the program. It does everything it’s supposed to do. The addition of TrueType and IFF RI7F support and the ability to print character sets are alone worth the price of admission. If you don’t tit ink you have a use for a font-management program, you’ll be surprised by TypeSmith 2.5. It’s a powerful tool that can simplify things for the desktop publisher, videographer, or graphics artist in you. Rick Manasa Live!2000 Update Argus Associates, $ 595 A2000 A3000 A4000.

Updated software and hardware for Live 20001 When the Amiga was launched in 1985, the late Andy Warhol used an eye-grabbing product called Live! (A- Distributions) to perform real-time video processing, effects, and image capture. I he product eventually fell out of development and quietly faded into oblivion. In recent months, however, .V’s former jack of all trades, Obert Sonsten, has resurrected the Live2000 hoard, some of its associated software, and software called Invision Plus (Elan Design). Amiga Trivia Time Live!200Q is a Zorro II card with two composite inputs and pass-thms. It performs a range of real-time effects such as color map, strobe, fade, and chroma key, all without the need for time-base corrected video input. It also digitizes still images or sequences as animations, and it performs a few image-processing operations. The system is limited to the Amiga’s native display rates and HAM, interlace, overscan, and high-resolution (640x400, 16-color) modes. The software part of the equation is Elan Design's InvisionPlus (S299), a graphical interface for the Live! Effects. Using interactive programmable mouse control, InvisionPlus maps selected effects of images and animations to kevs on InvisionPlus nicely complements the Live2000! Hardware. The Amiga keyboard. L sed in conjunction with Live!, InvisionPlus can capture images and animations. Numerous Updates T he hardware update for the Live!2000 board allows it to now be used with all versions of Workbench and in Amiga 3000s and 4000s. A necessary fix con- sists of replacing one socketed chip (an easy procedure), cutting the leg of one chip and soldering a jumper from there to the leg of another. The cut-and-soldcr work, while not especially difficult, does require rather fine tools and a steady hand. II you’ve never attempted this sort of precise work, take Argus Associates up on its offer to do the update for you. The Live! Software update and the InvisionPlus patch are available on disk. Argus Associates is continuing to update the Live! Board and the InvisionPlus software, and is exploring the possibilities of selling updated packages seperatcly. It would also like to produce updates for Focus Video (image processing) and Mondo Stereo (3-D stereo- image creation), as well as for other products that were under development at A" but never released. Live! Performances The Live! Hoard plays host to a number of other interactive software products that use its real-time video-processing power to create interactive environments. Two of these, Mandala (Vivid Group) and Cyberscape (Tensor Productions), have been used extensively by performance artists, dancers, television producers, mechanical and structural engineers, and environmental artists. The performers or participants can interact in real lime with the Amiga, producing music and sounds, showing pictures and animations, and in general having a great time. The best part is that putting an interactive system like that together is quite affordable. My hat is oil to Argus Associates for bringing Live! And Invision- Plus into the market again and making them available to users of the latest versions of the Amiga operating system. Michael Han ish Image Mirror Seven Seas Software, $ 149 All Amigas.

Basic image processing. Seven Seas, the makers of MathYision. Has introduced a new entrant in the field of Amiga image processors. While linage Mirror offers only a limited number of tools, it sports a unique, icon-based, drag-and-drop interface. Its tools are mainly of the composite variety, including few of the standard adjustments (such as gamma and contrast) one would expect to find in an image processor. Moving Icons Just about every function in Image Mirror works by dragging one icon onto another. After you have loaded an IFF image onto the Table window by doubleclicking the LoadPic icon, you drag the image’s icon onto a tool to perform the desired operation. When done, you can drag the image to icons that discard, save, rename, or print the file. To view the image, just drag its icon onto DrawPic, which displays it in HAM6, HAMS, OpalVision, or the Toaster, depending on your hardware. Image Mirror loads any kind of IFF image, though it saves onlv in the IFF24 format. While you can choose to work with regions inside an image, the Continued on p. 46. Commodore IBS rf.1 ;:s4.

CD-ROM CDTV CD-32 SALE These Movies work w properly equipped CD-32, CDI, A PC CD-ROM R E V I E W S From p. 42. Program supports only rectangular areas. Two other icons, Story'Line and Animate, are animation utilities. Storyline creates a set of thumbnails that snapshot the frames of an animation (typically at incremental points in an image-processing effect), and Animate generates 24-bit IFFs that von can combine into an ANIM file with another program. You can use Image Mirror can enhance even the most beautiful image. Different tools in the same animation, thus facilitating complicated creations. Image Mirror’s tools are configured in a nontraditional fashion: Instead of sliders to adjust a tool's effect, you’re presented with a variety of thumbnail images that show a range of effects; you then click on the image that most closely approximates what von want. The manual contains a few excellent tutorials and a limited reference section, and you'll probably need to scan it before Image Mirror’s unusual interface makes sense. Processing Tools 1 performed a simple rubthrough operation with the same two images in AD Pro, Imagemaster R t. And Image Mirror. 1m- agemaster just barely edged out ADPro’s eight seconds, but it took Image Mirror about two minutes and forty seconds to perform the same task. Other effects took similarly lengthy times to process. On the plus side, however, Image Mirror includes some nifty effects, including one Fvencver seen before: Man del, a function that swirls your image into a variety of fractal patterns. Image Mirror also includes about two dozen tools for rotating, warping, compositing, and morphing images. A Slightly Obscured Mirror The user interface, while novel, is not well implemented. When you start a process, for instance, there is no bar or dial to indicate progress. Also, the program’s requesters are aesthetically crude, displaying messages like “Busy_Busy_Busy." And avoiding sliders for the convenience of processing effects by the use of pictures doesn’t work well. The thumbnails’ 16- color grayscale screen is insufficiently detailed to figure out what is going on. With its few unique tools, Image Mirror might he a reasonable choice, were it not so costly. In addition, the program is surprisingly slow (even on an A4000) and has a decidedly unfinished look. Dave Johnson Cochlear Consciousness Pierceptron, S1S0 All Amigas, I,x 2,x 3.x compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Accelerator compatible. Minimum system: 1MB. Recommended system: MIDI output device. Music and ear-training software for the Amiga. 1 ochlear Consciousness (CC), a set of J aural-training programs that helps you develop relative and absolute pitch and the ability to recognize chords and harmonics, is ideal for budding piano tuners and musicians. Using a graphical interface, CC’s built-in quizzes remember your errors and improve your weak areas. CC includes six programs: Chords, Harmonics, Beats, Just, Temper, and Absolute, each designed to focus on an aspect or method of ear training. Chords teaches how to identify intervals, chords and chord progressions, while Harmonics shows how to recognize the individual harmonics of a tone. The Beats program helps you recognize the coincident harmonics of two tones and the beat rate. Just teaches you how to tune so the harmonics of a rone don’t beat against each other. The Temper progr am puts it all together, allowing you to create or modify tunings and identify the differences between two tunings. Finally, Absolute helps you develop perfect or absolute pitch, without reference to an already identified pitch. Some of the programs build on skills learned in previous sessions, so taking the lessons in order makes good sense. The manual's technical language is understandable and shouldn’t impede the serious student. It gives a good overview and an in-depth discussion of each program, as well as a section on psychoacoustic and sound theory for those interested in the concepts on which the program is based. Program Parade Each program offers a different twist on ear training. The Chords program lets you design and save your own chord database as well as transpose and limit the range of chords presented by the quizzes. You can also load and save different tunings and toggle MIDI access. The Harmonics program lets you think of each note as a combination of its harmonics, and most of the features in the Chords program are duplicated here. Beats teaches not only intervals and harmonics, but also the subtle beating patterns. The Absolute program doesn’t follow the logical progression of the others, requiring a familiarity only with the Chords program. The three modes ask you to tell whether the pitch is the tonic or above or below it (Binary mode); to identify the note correctly, regardless of octave (Chroma mode); or to identify the exact note (Note mode). Unfortunately, the program uses nonstandard requesters, and in the quiz sections, if you accidentally click the J wrong key, you have to accept the error ancl the consequent lowering of your score. Also, there are no safety nets such as save or record. As a largely unschooled musician. I've always been suspicious of people who could tell notes and chords without audio or visual clues. Many of those same musicians, however, felt intimidated by my ability to play by ear. Cochlear Consciousness helps both camps get a better understanding of what the other is doing.

If you’re looking For a cheap emulator so that you can rake your clailv PC word-processing work home with you, then PCTask may fit j the bill. If you’re looking to run Windows or play Wing Commander II, however, you need to invest in a good 486-33. Slow Boat to DOS Getting tip and running is straightforward, PCTask installs quickly, then opens its own Amiga window to display the number of physical disk drives it can use as PC drives (these can be any internal floppies connected to your system). In addition, hard-drive owners can simulate having a C: or D: drive by setting up a special PC file on the .Amiga hard drive, or by partitioning a portion of the Amiga drive to act as a PC drive. As for the display, you can select whether to emulate a monochrome, CGA, EGA, or VGA graphics adapter. In order to use SVGA or MCGA graphics (640x480 or 320x200 in 256 colors), you must have the AGA chip set. PCTask seems to emulate only 256K of video memo! An almost-forgotten limitation Getting started is easy with PC Task. That precludes running most current PC] graphics applications. If you leave the set-up screen, PCTask immediately tries to hoot up into its PC-emulation mode. Note well that you must have a PC] system disk handy; it's not included with the program. You need ready access to a PC (or know someone who does) before using PCTask. Bottom Line Most PC-XT-compal ible programs work with PCTask. I ran WordStar, dBASE III. And several other productivity programs without any problem. Amazingly, WordStar seemed more responsive than the Amiga’s own Pro- Write and Final Writer. Disappointment set in, however, when I tried to boot up games or any application that involved graphics, with the exception of Electronic Arts' DeluxePaint II Enhanced for the PC, I his program, however, was painfully slow. And almost every old XT game I i O tried to load resulted in either an out- of-memory error or a system crash. I’m annoyed that DevWare supplies no printed documentation for a $ 50 program; instead, you list rely on a disk file. Although the best performance requires an accelerated Amiga, I still found operation slow on a 40-MHz, 68030-based system. In conclusion, if you’re anxious to inn today’s mainstream PC] programs on your Amiga, there’s still no substitute for hardware. PCTask is strictly for those i budget-minded Amiga users with a need to access older X4 -compatible databases, word processors, and other applications.

2. 1 CB Ne.v 4.3 GB 5 1345 tq S 3395 available for sale $ Call for PficilK prtc Ambitious Trrlmnlnvies Why do you need a Toaster Oven for your Flyer system? A big problem with the A4000 is its deficient expansion capability in adding cards or peripheral drives. Its power supply is equally weak. Peripheral Cards A4000 LIMITATIONS - Although you have a video slot, four Zorro and three PC slots, you can add only four cards: e.g., the Video Toaster (which is a double-width card) occupies two card positions (two Zorros and one PC), leaving two card positions available; adding the Flyer (a Zorro card) takes up another position, leaving one remaining card position (PC Zorro); and since your Flyer system requires a TBC, that takes your last card position. You need more expansion than that for pro video production! TOASTER OVEN ADVANTAGES -* Other cards you'd most likely want to add to your system display cards like the Picasso II or Retina, the SunRize 16 for better audio than the Flyer supplies, or an Ethernet card can be added to the Toaster Oven. Because the Toaster Oven gives back three Zorro positions. In the Toaster Oven the Video slot is separate from the Zorro slots, so when adding the Toaster card the Zorros are left free. This gives you back two of your Zorro slots. The Toaster Oven also has six power-only PC slots, one of which can take your TBC. This now frees up one more Zorro! So your ultimate Flyer system now has: Toaster, Flyer, Sunrize AD516, Picasso II or Retina, Ethernet card, TBC, plus five more slot positions for power-only cards; five PC and two optional Zorro cards. Peripheral Drives A4000 LIMITATIONS -? Another limitation of the A4000 is how few bays for hard disks, CD- ROMs, tape drives, removables, etc. are available. It has one 5.25 inch bay and one extra 3.5 inch bay, and a 3.5 inch internal mounting bracket. And definitely no room for full height drives. TOASTER OVEN ADVANTAGES The Toaster Oven has 11 drive bays. There is one 3.5 inch floppy bay, plus another suitable for a Syquest 270Mb removable. There are five 5.25 inch half-height bays to accommodate NEC triple-speed CD-ROM drives, Exabyte 8505 8mm tape drives and other storage devices, or two full- height 9Gb Elite drives for the Flyer with one bay remaining for another device. There are four internal 3.5 inch Low Profile (LPC) bays. Power Supply A4000 LIMITATIONS -? Weak, barely adequate to power a minimum system. TOASTER OVEN ADVANTAGES ¦-?300 Watts and a big fan. Powerful enough to accommodate any load. Say no more! The Most Powerful DeskTop Video System In The World! JustGot More Powerful!!! The ToasterOven CT has been Completely Redesigned.

Shatter BlowLIp Swarm LAYOUT: Snake New features include automated scene creation of true 3D explosions (not flat polygons), swarming behavior through the use of Attractor Repeller techniques and morphing objects along a path. Three Energy macros will easily create moving swarms by fragmenting objects and animating the pieces along motion paths. Adjustable velocity, inertia and frame delay parameters control natural- seeming interactions of the elements. With the Layout macros you can render unlimited scenes sequentially to any combination of destinations; transfer scene files with all elements; automate creation of focal distance envelopes; morph objects along a path using bones; create a constant velocity for existing motion paths. Modeler macros will streamline cloning objects and surfaces; control the angle as well as position of mirrored objects; make it easy to join a polygon to the surface and angle of another; and load an entire scene into Modeler with all objects.

Well, chances are, it can’t touch Doom for the IBM. What makes Doom and its clones so unique? In a nutshell, Doom allows the player to move smoothly, in first-person, full-screen mode, through large, dark environments rich in stairs, secret places, push-button puzzles, and monsters. It is realistic, intuitive and supremely scary. And addictive. All this makes for great gameplay, hut as you’re probably asking, is the Amiga capable of this kind of 3-D free-scrolling action? Yes. Anyone who’s tried out the RPGs Legends of Valour, Ambermoon, or the forthcoming Robinson’s Requiem, or hacked a path into the 3-D hits of Jurassic Park, knows that even a moderately fast Amiga can simulate a texture-mapped scroll with some panache. All the same, it may be a while before the first commercial 3-D freescrolling titles actually appear 011 the shelves, but we’ll take a look at what’s in store. Early Arrivals Apache Software is finishing off Deathmasque a two-player Doom-style game which, at this writing, was expected to he released by England’s Alternative Software before Christmas. Imagitec's Freelancer 2120 is planned for the Amiga, hut probably won’t appear until sometime in 1995, and one large Amiga-specific publisher has been offered a third-party Doom- derived game. A number of designers are at work on games or game engines. An Last Coast coding outfit is exploring the idea of porting Wolfenstein 3-D itself. Trick or Treat (shareware available via CIS, about S10) is a split-screen, two-player maze game from England that sends you and a pal cast as a pair of rotund, gun-toting wizards roaming about a texture-mapped stone village until one of you is reduced to a bloody pulp. It’s quite basic hardly a Doom "deathmatch” but the scrolling is respectable on anything Faster than an 68000, and ducking into the many doorways fixes you up with special equipment (a magnet to mess up your opponent’s compass, for instance). The most promising of the lot, though, is a joystick-driven, Doom-style engine being developed for AGA machines by a young Englishman named Andrew Clitheroe. His game world (as yet unnamed) isn’t very large or well-populated. No guns, no butter, no sounds, no tale to teli. Not yet. What it does have, nevertheless, is trace elements of the rich and ragged atmosphere spun by Doom that feeling of corners best left unturned, that sense of haunted darkness and that a near-empty game world can generate any reponse beyond clinical interest is a good sign. I he texture-mapped walls, displayed in delightfully grainy resolution, effectively suggest janitorial neglect. At the same time, in extreme cioseup, the colors did tend to messily smear together. Here’s hoping Clitheroe includes a high-res version for fast machines in the final release. (The version I looked at was for a stock A1200.) Bear in mind: The game wasn’t done. Not hardly. Collision detection wasn’t in place. You couldn’t kill the monster. (Holding the firebutton down and maneuvering the joystick did allow lateral movement, though.) It wasn’t hard to crash the program or corrupt the graphics. But it would be hard not to be excited about the engine’s potential. No, this demo’s not on the nets. You probably won’t see Clitheroe’s work until it’s ready for release. (He’s planning to shop the demo with publishers.) The basic technology, however, is on display in a wide range of demos many modestly interactive, most AGA-only, and none (alas) representing genuine games available from FTP sites and commercial services. Virtually all of them can be found on Aminet and Portal, and a few have also drifted to services like CIS and Genie. (I’ve limited the Following survey to those that feature texture- mapping and rotation within a game-style environment.) Bring on the Demos! BSP John Fehr BSP 1.0 allows you to stroll through the empty hallways, cellars and sniper nests of the IBM version of Doom on your Amiga. It’s a fascinating experience not to say a discombobu- lating one to see those familiar wall textures and rooms flowing by on Big Beige. The speed has been improved for this release. Unfortunately* floor and ceiling textures aren’t included (just the walls), so you’ll have to walk through doors, and there’s not a beastie or object in sight. It may offer more work than reward, however, because you’ll need either the shareware or registered version of Doom, as well as access to an IBM. Chunky Maze David Bryson A solid, effective interactive Wolfenstein demo, this features flickering torches and paintings on the walls. (Is that Jane Fonda?) Resolution has been dropped somewhat in the interest of speed, but it’s not at all a disagreeable compromise. If we’re lucky, the first full game we see may look something like this. A Wow! Exquisite. A must for your games library. C Meets expectations. Good, solid performer. B Great fun. Plenty of entertainment value here. D Disappointing. Lots of room for improvement. F A real stinker. DonTt waste your time. $ You may encounter some problems under this operating system and or require a PAL NTSC adapter. By Peter Olafson, AW Games Editor DentAWglf Alex Amsel Silltuna Software This should look familiar; ihe graphics in this AGA-only demo were ripped f rom Doom. Unfortunately, the resolution here is less than VGA, and the familiar texture maps, smushed into a central window, don’t have quite the same oomph. But this demo does blaze along on a fast A1200, the screen layout is nice, and Anise I indicates lie does have his own graphics. He also mentions (without specifics) that there will he more to the game than its models, and he'd like to include a serial link for two-player deathmatches, as well as a map editor. Dogenstein 3-D Jason C. Doig You may note the absence of a floor, and observe that the walls are oddly warped. (The water-damage curvature is substan- BSP “interprets” the IBM version of Doom for your Amiga. Dally repaired in the most recent version.) But the gun-in- gloved-hand in the foreground and the computer terminals and blood-spattered walls make this Wolfish in spirit, and in terms of speed, it fairly cranks. Works with a joystick, too. (Most of the others use the mouse.) Doomed Pearl Surprise; This Australian demo works on an ordinary A500 running 1.3. Bigger surprise: It’s full-screen. (Many of the other demos run in a small window to keep up the speed.) And it uses a nice array of colors. However, while Lowest Common ? Special Re poke CD32: The Next Generation Thirteen months after the CD32 was released in Europe, most of the software available for the machine isn’t really CD32 software. It’s Amiga software, converted to run comfortably under Kickstart 3.1, with support for the new controller and, sometimes, to the accompaniment ofCD-quality sound. But, as we enter the CD32’s first full Christmas buying season, the situation is showing signs of change. Some big games are inbound. By the time you read this, we should finally be seeing Gremlin's much-awaited Litil Divil (a charming amalgam of 3-D arcade exploration and puzzle room); Guardian (Acid Software's answer to Starwing); and Mirage's sculpted beat- ’em-up, Rise of the Robots. Talkies Some incremental changes are already kicking in. We’ve seen the first “talkie” CD-ROM game for the Amiga: Simon the Sorcerer (about $ 45). A couple more are planned: Cyberdreams is bringing over Dark Seed, and Interplay is doing Star Trek: 25th Anniversary, (in French only. Qitel dommage.) Simon is about a young magician’s quest to recover his missing master from the clutches of the bad wizard Sordid. It's a LucasArts clone from England’s Adventuresoft (the folks who did the Elvira games for Accolade). The difference here is that all the lines are read aloud by about a dozen actors. Adding speech continues to be a common practice in disk-to-CD conversions in the IBM world, and it naturally lends the game more personality. And yet there are risks associated with this addition. Playing a good adventure is like reading a good book: After a while, you begin to hear the characters’ voices in your head, filtered through your own experience, even without the benefit of a ¦'talkie” version. Having someone else’s voice superimposed atop the one between your ears can either complement that feeling ... or utterly violate it. Chris Barrie and the nine other players here do a pretty nice job while not staying entirely clear of this trap. (To be fair, no one could.) Barrie doesn’t have quite the voice I had in mind for Simon’s little magician the first time I played the game, ft’s a little too grownup. But it’s not totally foreign, either, and the game’s tenor improves discernibly with real people standing behind it. Compilations The voices are made possible by the CD’s immense storage capacity. (Simon’s includes some 350 megabytes of data the equivalent of about 420 Amiga OFS disks.) This permits all kinds of interesting possibilities: back catalogues of out-of- print commercial software; shareware games compilations; and the simple bundling of parent games and their data disks. The first of these has found ultimate fulfillment in Emerald Mines (.Almathera, about S22). A bit of history: Emerald Mine and E II were a pair of legendary' Boulderdash clones released by the German label Kingsoft in the late ’80s. They were charming enough to entice you in and excruciatingly difficult enough to have you tearing your hair out in great handfuls before you got through if you ever did get through the game. A devoted following sprang up. Thousands of levels were created, along with new graphic sets and sounds, and more than 110 Emerald Mine-based games were placed in the public domain under a wide range of names. Almathera has roped all 10,000 levels under one umbrella and added a menu system that allows you to play any of them (as well as the original games) with graphics and sounds of your choosing. The graphics are still straight out of 1988, but the Continued on p. 62. 3-D Construction Kit 3-D World Boxing SIDELINE SOFTWARE orders 1-800-888-9273 only 840 N*W. 57th Court, Ft.

Buried within other neat gamelike effects in this superb, two-disk Kurodenio is a substantial Wolfenstein-cum-Doom segment, with giant rotating wall fans, detailed doorways, and tiles on ceiling and floor. It's a bit balky, even on a last machine and no wonder, given the detail level. PHOBO.S Cyadonia Borrows its name front Doom’s alien-infested base, but otherwise nothing to write home about. This rolling demo lias a range of wall tiles, but practices on them the same strange warping effect of the first version of Dogenstein (see below); it's rather like peering out a peephole to see who's at the door. POOM Jussi Salmi andJanne Juhola An essential download. Simply the closest we’ve come to Doom Amiga, and the recent version 0.2 is an staggering improvement. It's in 256 colors (Pooin is AGA only), it’s huge, it runs like a deer on an 050, it has lexiured ceilings and floors not to mention effects like steam pipes, see-through walls, blinking lights, and doors that open.

It's good enough that its creators dabbled with the idea of turning it into a full-fledged game, hut most oilers of help fell through and now they don’t have the time. (If you do, the Aztec sources are available on the Aniinet.) TextDemo5 John Hendrikx Very nice! T his raycasting demo has come quite some ways from the tidy, spartan, T 1)4. The dungeon features true light sources, and, occasionally, moving ones. The walls actually curve. The frame rate is fine, even in 256-color AGA, and is close to full-screen mode on an ’030-based 1200. The map (thoughtfully included) is quite large: there's actually someplace to go in this demo. Versions are also included for KGS and OCS machines. And I lendrikx hints, delightfully, at a game in the works. TmapDemo Chris Greene Next to Rot, this AGA offering is probably the best-known among the Wolfenstein-style demos. Written by a former Commodore graphics engineer, it’s best described as “Night Gallery” a shadowy hi-res scroll past cubes with illuminated paintings for sides. The only thing missing is old Rod. Vciy stylish, and atmospheric in a spooky way that could he the start of something interesting. Walls Mats Knip Not detailed at all this uses plain old rectangles hut the speed at which they whip by fairly defies belief: allegedly about 50 frames per second on a stock A500. The author started this with a view to a game, and while lie indicates he’s dropped that idea, he’s still improving the engine with filled-vector objects, windows, and floor patterns. Wolf Chris Column The first version of this AGA demo was incredible, mainly lor its data compression a 7K LHA archive file blossomed to 422K but it also had a nice smooth scroll. The newest adds depth shading and toggles between indoor and outdoor mazes. And the smooth scroll has gotten smoother; Wolf gets 22 to 25 frames per second on a stock A1200 and 50 to 59 on an accelerated machine. Slick. Game in the works. From p. 61. Game is as riveting as ever. (You can tell by the pile of hair next to my chair.) 1 his is a wonderful idea well implemented ii runs on CDTY, A570, and Amiga CD32 as well and while the execution may prove a hit tricky on NTSC machines (EM is in PAL), it’s worth it. You'll literally never he able to stop playing. The Humans (Mirage, about $ 35), a Lemmings clone from Imagitec, is a far mure modest comp, hut a good one. H now incorporates the Jurassic Levels data disk, and, free oft he incessant swapping and murderously long loads of the disk- based game, becomes the charming, gorgeously-appointed puzzler it always wanted to he.

O o On the other hand. I'm not sure I get the point behind The Classic Lotus Trilogy (Gremlin. About S35). They’ve cobbled together Lotus Turbo Ksprit Challenge, Lotus I m ho Challenge II and Lotus 111 three licensed racing games that, in their respective days, were all quite good. (Lotus 111 still holds up well.) 1 lowcver, rhev weren’t so much three different games as one n game in progression, and the family-reunion thing here is rather like having three takes of the same scene. A CD32-spe- cific version of Lotus 111 with more built-in tracks and extra features would have been a better idea especially since
F. uropress has dropped plans to bring its texture-mapped racer. Rally, to the Amiga. Lock-N-Load’s thousand-game bonanza was, for the most part, a sterling example of a shareware and FI) games compilation. Games, Vols. 1 and 2. And Games 8c Goodies (Multimedia Machine Better Concepts, about $ 35 each), which predated it, are the “Don’ts" side of this picture. It’s a nice idea. The compilers have planted 100 PD and shareware releases 107 on G&G on each of three Cds and allowed you to hoot them via a more-than-prcsentablc interface. There’s good to decent stuff strewn across all three especially on G&G, which is by far the most up-to-date. However, 100 games is a drop in the bucket on Cl); the organization (PD and shareware sections) is unhelpful: a number of the games (50 on Vol. I) require either mouse or keyboard to work properly; and the selections seem generally indiscriminate, Come on now : Space Attack? Space Attack 2? Download Dungeon The only thing knights 2.-1 doesn’t provide is another person to play w ith. This two-player, top-down dungeon crawl offers a lovely range of options and professional graphics that had me wandering around happily even on my lonesome . . . Green Five is a classic arcade puzzler firmly grounded in Out-of-th is-World territory, with perhaps the most dazzling intro ever to adorn a shareware game ... If you ever wondered what became of Mother Lode author Joe Rmnsey. Well, lately, he's been full of Hot Air, a nifty puzzle-platformer with your Mother Lode-sized character conspiring to free balloons from puzzlesome environs. A new version with bigger and better graphics is in the works. (Joe’s also the prime mover behind the Paradise version ol Netrek for Dnet.) Incinerators followup is Castle Incinerator, which puts a medieval spin on the original’s great Missile-Command- goes-3-D concept. (It’s available only to registered users of the original.) Nothing really new here, save for the graphics, hut I’ve been messing with this even more than author Pete Storonskij’s new game: the demo derby Mangled Fenders. Next up for Pete: a puzzle game called Conundrum . . . It's rare enough that we get a sophisticated. Breach-like strategy game like Ad oi War 1.4. Now there are two A() V data disks for the registered version . .. Raise the 1 Uanic is among the best adventures built under Virtual Reality Studio, with intelligent puzzles, a quasi-serious approach and, most particularly. A wonderfully murky underwater atmosphere . . . Ordinarilv I don't go for color-matching contests like The Pyramid Game there are just too many of them but this one has a beautiful simplicity (not u> mention a great Middle Eastern score) and plays a lively game , . . The new deluxe version of Psycho Squares takes a simple strategy- Upgrades An intermediate category, between reinvention and reissue, is The Upgrade: a CD32 revision of a disk-based game that adds significantly to the atmosphere or playability of (he original. ’Ihe best of these to date is Gunship 2000 (MicroProse, about $ 40) coded by Bob Koon, who did the Amiga conversion of Dune II. I can’t say this feature or that feature is different, and I confess 1 don’t much like flying by joypad. But the feel is great; you gel bombarded from every direction, and then there’s the enemy as well. Whether its the aggressive intro, or music that hursts out at you. Or the plentiful use of voices, or just the disk-access screens, Gunship 2000 never fails to let you know that you’re onto something cool and
* > n CD-specific. Sabre Team (Krisalis. About $ 35) was released lor standard Amigas a ways back, and the (.1)32 and A1200 versions have gotten the benefit of the subsequent IBM conversion: The VGA graphics look great, and the controls have been lightened up. The original version of this Breach-like isometric strategy game, in which you run an antiterrorist squad, had problems with its interface; you never knew quite what was going on. 11 ere, you almost always know . . . And get killed anv- tid y C* way. (Love the animated icons!) Then again, ambient sound should be more plentiful on a CD game. I miss the mouse control (which should have been an option). And 1 ran into graphical glitches and imrequested mission-rest arts especially from the map screen even when running in PAL. Sabre Team’s not X-Comm, but it's not bad. Game idea and implements it so deftly that the machines just float away, leaving you alone with the game . . . Global Thermonuclear War adapts a Scorched Tanks conceit to the War Room maps from the movie War Games. Fun, but how about a nice game of chess? I didn’t know what I was getting into when 1 opened this Pandora’s box of AGA games. Another base touched: Ooze (widely available, with a companion ECS version) is a pleasant 256-color Othello variant rather in the style o( TTR’s Thromulus. It's the work of Josh Farley the principal architect behind a sparkling Shadow of the Beast Il-like action adventure called Monster Hunter (which appears doomed to remain unfinished, but is available in playable- dcmo form). . . Zombie Apocalypse II is a gruesome Op Wolf- style blaster (and an exceptionally well-done one, at that), which shows to great effect what can be done with Blitz Basic II . . . The two-disk Masquerade is basically Boulder- dash AGA, while Slider gives an elegant AGA twist to the old sliding-block puzzle game. (An ECS version is also included.) Keep an eye out for Slider author Joseph Carlson’s and Randall Richards’ joint production of Carnage, which sounds like Alien Breed or Mean Arenas with modem play . . . Speaking of Breed, Cyber'Fech is a line clone of Team 1 7*s maze shoot-’em-up. Alien Breed . . . Mad Fighters II is basically a continuation of the original licenseware lighting game, but what seemed like crude art seems just plain sloppv here. Much better is To the Death, which has commercial quality graphics, but. Alas, only one enemy in the PD version . . . Evil Insects is yet another Space Invaders, with one small contortion: Vour little man lires at an angle to the ceiling, where stones then drop on encroaching insects. Wouldn’t an aerosol can be simpler? ¦ Amiga CD-32 $ 259 1349 CDN$

2. 800 fants Type, Bcrrap. Cotor. It's ai here' Over 1000 EPS Ciparts' 24.95 THE LAST WORD Kudos, complaints, comments, concerns, and contributions from our readers. Come, Get Together Now that we have this time of suspended animation, there is work to be done work that Amiga World is in an optimal position to help organize. Someone needs to get the various interests together to help forge the future of the Amiga. 1 am convinced that no one is going to singlehandedly “save” our machine. The Amiga’s salvation will come from the work of a group of intensely interested people who will start by coming tip with a vision of where the Amiga needs to go from here in marketing, product development, interaction with wholesalers and dealers and perhaps most of all with the hundreds of thousands of Amiga owners. Here are two of my own ideas: First, a most significant event lias occurred and is waiting to be snatched like a ripe plum the development of the PowerPC chip. After all, if this chip can switch between the IBM PC and Apple operating systems, it’s got to be able to be adapted for the Amiga. Second, surely someone can finally come out J d with an Amiga-compatible laptop. I gave up some time ago and bought a ¦186, and 1 can now state from personal experience that trying to read an MS- DOS manual is like tackling a poor translation of original Sanskrit. Gregory L. Pittman, MD Ijmisville, Kentucky Market It Well! Some marketing advice for Amiga- USA, whoever you are:
1. Immediately announce through ads in appropriate magazines, press releases, and so on, that the Amiga is not dead, but is back and healthy.
2. Play up the Amiga name, not Commodore.
3. Use Commodore’s erstwhile marketing as a reverse role model for future advertising. (The verbose, archaic-looking ads in Amiga magazines were a waste of money and amounted to “preaching to the choir.” Win some much-needed friends at multiplatform magazines by spending ad dollars with DV Magazine, THE Journal, New Media, Computer Pictures, and others and don’t forget the pro and consumer video magazines.
4. Use NewTek as a positive role model for advertising. Highly visible, slick ads in video magazines made (he Video Toaster a household word and a respected item in video studios everywhere almost overnight. The Amiga’s salvation will come prom the work of a gro up of intensely in terested people who will start by coming up with a vision of where the Amiga needs to go from here.
5. Take advantage of Hollywood’s use of the Toaster as a cost-effective tool of preference to market the Amiga. Spotlight those little-known but seen-all-over-the-place uses of the Amiga, such as ballparks, Vegas light displays, TV series, InfoChannels, and so on.
6. Keep the low-end product low- priced. There should always be a stripped-down, bare-bones version for entry-level users, designed to be upgradable so you can keep selling them addons as they come to afford them.
7. Target the Amiga’s strongest higher-end product to its strongest thicker-wallet users the corporate, educational, cable, broadcast, and serious, free-lance video-production market.
8. Amiga World could help by soliciting and printing Amiga-user success stories to give the faithful some ammunition with which to convince their bosses or other potential purchasers not to squander their money chasing ever-changing mainstream “catch-up” technology, Ken Sauer Greeley, Colorado Phoenix, Arise! As I watch the Commodore liquidation process, I praise Amiga World for doing whatever is necessary to stay in the black (e.g., cutting back the number of pages or whatever) and providing a positive forum for the Amiga community. Whoever turns out to be at the helm, let’s support them directly by inputting what we want to see in the next generation of machines. For myself, I know I’d like to see the fastest, most affordable RISC processor, capable of sustained 100-300 MIPs, full 32-bit color (8-bit Alpha), 16- bit stereo sound, a stable power supply, full 1.3-3.0 DOS emulation built in for software compatibility, and expandable chip RAM. Gary Poole Albuquerque, New Mexico Be Tiiou Upbeat! Commodore is dead, but the Amiga is alive! Waste not your thoughts on where support will come from. Care not that you are now an orphan computer user, but revel in the fact that your Amiga is still king of the video hill. Sweat it not that Amiga- World shrinks in size, but renew your subscription as I recently did, because it is a good magazine and deserves your continued support in these difficult times. Lastly, congratulate yourself. While others wallow in the lugubrious World- of-Windows, while others shell out thousands lor video-processing power substandard to the Amiga, while only a few expensive Macs and IBMs start to catch up to your Amiga, you have it now. Use it. And fret no longer. Steve Randall Yuma, Arizona ¦ |f I V P ?Bill Me ?
