* y FIRST IMPRESSIONS “The worms crawl in, Ike worm crawl out I’ve been waiting until our print deadline to write this column because I was hoping that the news we’ve heard this week would turn out to be a molehill, not a mountain. Plus, I’m dying to be kind to my blood pressure. In case you hadn’t heard, things in the Commodore liquidation proceedings took the strangest twist in an already bizarre tale when it was reported that two very familiar reptiles had climbed back out of the primordial ooze possibly to play a role in the case. I say “possibly” because that’s what we were waiting to hear as this issue went to press. (For a full report on the re-emergence of dare 1 say it living Gould and Mehdi Ali in the Commodore case, see “Overscan,” p. 4. In this issue.) Now, if living and Mehdi wind up crawling back to where they came from without a ripple, that’s line it will have cost us only a week or two in proceedings where delays have become SOP. But if they succeed in throwing a monkey wrench into the resolution of this case, they may achieve something even they couldn’t cause when they were running the company (i.e., into the ground) themselves killing off the Amiga. The prospect of having even part of the liquidation come under the jurisdiction of US bankruptcy courts seems to be making our old friends just a little nervous. It makes a person wonder if the stricter, twelve-month liability period for the actions of former company executives under US law (as opposed to three months in the Bahamas) has some hidden significance. While we certainly wouldn't care to speculate in print about such a matter until the entire situation is brought to light and those involved get to explain their actions 1 bet there are more than a few Amiga owners, not to mention members of the Commodore Shareholders’ Movement, who might be willing to venture some conclusions of their own. If = and this is still a very big “if" as I write this) living Gould and Mehdi Ali succeed in significantly delaying the proceedings by filing an objection to the liquidators’ plans lor resolving tiiis mess, it would be a tragically ironic outcome to this sony affair. Legal representatives for the liquidators, Commodore’s creditors, and the parties seeking to purchase the rights to the Amiga were on the verge of working out a veiy difficult, hard-fought settlement to the case. Any further delay especially from the corner that brought us to this impasse in the first place may well have dire consequences for the future resurgence of the Amiga. Let’s hope the perpetrators of the decline of the Amiga will not be allowed to finish what all their mismanagement and shortsightedness failed to achieve. Long live the Amiga!

Game Bits ....34 Quick notes on new releases in the Amiga game market, OVERSCAN News, New Products and More Former Commodore Execs May Delay Liquidation Proceedings As this issue was going to press, AmigaWorld learned that former Commodore executives Irving Gould and Mehdi Ali may try to block a settlement proposed by the liquidators in the Commodore bankruptcy proceedings. In addition, it was reported that two new parties may enter the bidding process -joining CEI and the former management team of Commodore UK. In early February, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the liquidators had worked out an accord with Commodore’s creditors that would clear the way for the purchase of the company. Under the terms of the accord, part of the liquidation would be adjudicated under Bahamian law and part under US law. That, however, raised die possibility of a jurisdictional challenge from former Commodore company executives Gould and Ali. Lawyers for the two men were to appear before the Bahamian Supreme Court to discuss whether a formal objection to the proposed settlement would be filed to block further proceedings. That hearing, howrever, was postponed when one of the judges was fore ed to take an emergency leave. The court was to reconvene sometime near the end of February. The basis of the objection would be that since Commodore International was incorporated in the Bahamas and filed for liquidation under Bahamian law, US bankruptcy courts have no jurisdiction in the matter a point with which the creditors have disagreed since the beginning. The terms of the new accord have already been accepted by US Bankruptcy Judge James (iarritv. The underlying cause of this dispute may lie with differing provisions of bankruptcy law under the two jurisdictions. US law provides that former executives of a company filing for bankruptcy can be held liable for actions taken up to 12 months prior to filing. The more lenient Bahamian law stipulates only a three- month period. If some of the proceedings take place under US law, it could open the way for the creditors to file suit against Gould, Ali, and others for possible wrongdoing during the 12 months prior to Commodore’s filing for liquidation last May. The Philadelphia Inquirer also reported that two new parties may enter the bidding process. Present in Nassau on the day of the postponed Supreme Court hearing were lawyers for the German computer distributor Escom AG (previously rumored to be interested in acquiring Commodore) and an as-yet-unnamed "major American technology company." Regardless of the number of bidders, the crucial element in the proceedings now is how the Bahamian court will rule on the Gould Ali objection and whether this will cause significant delays in resolving the liquidation. DS DraCo: A New Life for the Amiga? A PREVIEW OF MACROSySTEMS’ ’060 WORKSTATION MacroSystems is a rare find these days. Not only is the German-based company a stalwart supporter of the Amiga, but it's also constantly redefining the market with innovative products, such as the Vlab Motion board, the Retina Z3 display card, the 16-bit Toccata sound card, and Xi-Paint, its latest paint package. In a bold effort to revitalize the Amiga market, the company is producing a Motorola 68060-based computer that uses the Amiga OS: the DraCo. Recently, AmigaWor d visited company headquarters in Witten, Germany, to find out just what all the buzz was about the DraCo. Son of Amiga?

Denny on DOS HINTS & TIPS FOR MASTERING THE OPERATING SYSTEM 11 Driving Miss Daisywheel The Amiga’s output has always looked good on screen. II you take the time to learn the ins and outs of the Amiga DOS Preferences printing system, you can make your hardcopy printouts look just as good. This month we'll take a look at the Amiga’s printer drivers; next time well delve into the Prefs editors that give von control over them. Although it’s now a common feature in computer operating systems, ten years ago die Amiga’s use of a single printer driver for all programs was revolutionary in the personal-computer market. The Macs of the day supported only Apple printers, while Pcs required ** different, printer driver lor every program. The Amiga's centralized system means you need only 4 J J one driver for all vour programs (with the exception of a few such as WordPerfect and PageStream 3 that use custom drivers in an effort to enhance printing capabilities). The drivers included with AmigaDOS support hundreds of different printer models; for those that aren’t included, there are a variety of public-domain, shareware, and commercial drivers available. What Is Your Preference, Sir? Your printer may be supported by a Preferences driver even if it’s not listed in the AmigaDOS manual. Check your printer’s manual for code-compatibility with a popular printer: Most modern dot-matrix printers are compatible with the Epson 24-pin standard (EpsonQ), while most inkjets and laser printers are Hewlett-Packard compatible (HlM)eskJet and HP Lasei Jet, respectively). If you’re in the market for a laser printer and you want PostScript for desktop- publishing purposes, try to find a printer that’s compatible with both PostScript and HP LaserJet (PCL) codes. Although AmigaDOS releases from 2.1 on do include a PostScript driver, QUICK TIP: If you’re using an Epson- compatible 24-pin printer, try the NEC_Pinwriter driver instead of the EpsonQ driver. This should work just as well for most applications, and will give you access to the 360-dpi resolution that the Epson driver doesn’t support. It’s not a very good one and may not work well with some applications. With a dual- emulation printer, you can use PostScript to get the best results from desktop-publishing applications such as PageStream and Professional Page, and shift back down to HP emulation for programs like Brilliance and Sbase. If you set out to buy a new printer, you may find upon investigation (and by all means investigate before purchasing!) That although it's supported by a Preferences driver, that driver doesn't let you use the printer to its full potential. For example, newer HP- compatible laser printers often support 600 dots-per- inch printing, but the Preferences driver supports only 300 dpi. Another example is Canon’s line of inkjet printers. While they understand Epson printer codes, you won’t get a good-looking printout if you try to use an Epson dot-matrix driver. Break out your modem and find a copy of Wolf Faust’s Canon Studio package online. A stripped-down version of the original Studio printer-driver software (more on this later), Canon Studio gives you much bet- O j ter control of your Canon printer’s features. For a small fee, you can upgrade to the full-blown version of Canon Studio, which features multiple dither patterns and more. The Studio II Advantage Or better yet, give Noahfi’s a call ancl pick up a copy of Faust’s Studio II printer software. This must-have package provides top-notch drivers for Canon Bubble Jets, HP DeskJets, LaserJets, and other PCL printers, most 24-pin printers, and the Epson Stylus series. This package includes last drivers that can not only take advantage of your printer’s highest resolution, but can also support 256 gray levels and 54 dither methods, as well as your printer’s built-in typefaces, Fhe Studio II package also supports 24-bit output to color printers and includes a program for printing 24-bit images at sizes ranging from thumbnails to multipage posters. There’s even a Color Management System (CMS) feature, with which you can precisely match your printers output to your monitor, eliminating dark, muddy printouts. (If you own a scanner, Studio II can even do its calibration automatically.) This package is not inexpensive, but if output quality is important to you, it’s well worth the price. Money-Saver Solutions If you’re just looking for a better printer driver and don’t want to spend much, there are still some good solutions, Endicor has just released its Epson Stylus Color driver, which supports the 720-dpi and Micro- Weave modes of Epson’s superb color printer. Hew 1 e 11- Packarcl owners can look to Creative Focus’s SuperDJ3 and SuperLJ4 drivers, which dramatically improve output on DeskJet and LaserJet printers. There are also numerous public-domain and shareware drivers available on networks and local bulletin boards. (To locate vendors of commercial drivers mentioned here, see the "Manufacturers' Distributors' Addresses” list, on

0802. A CD-ROM drive in lieu of an internal floppy drive and slots for all of MacroSystems' existing products, such as Vlab Motion and Toccata. Rather than 8-bit RGB output, DraCo will use the Retina Z3 for 24-bit output. More than just a solution to hard-to-find Amigas, Sprave believes that DraCo could well be a cost-effective alternative to the SGI Indy, offering lower-priced software and more power for 24-bit nonlinear editing. Pending the outcome of the Commodore 0 V E R S ; A liquidation proceedings, look for MacroSys- tems Noahji's to debut DraCo at NAB '95. More Irons in the Fire In addition, AmigaWorki was treated to a demonstration of the latest Vlab Motion board and its MovieShop software on a 40 Mhz Warp Engine-equipped A4000. You may recall that Vlab took some heat last year in earlier reviews, but the new hardware and software show marked improvement. Certainly, the documentation and beta software that accompanied our initial review copy did not do the system justice. According to Sprave, problems with the chips on earlier versions have been rectified since the chips are now soldered into place. Now MovieShop 2.1 totally controls Vlab Motion and Toccata, at last delivering on the promise of a complete nonlinear editing solution. With Y 'C video fed into the system, you can save, resize, and manipulate both the sound and video in real time. Features such as picture-in-a-picture, drag-and- drop editing, and time-line editing make the Vlab system a breeze. Any feature or button that appears on the screen can also he duplicated through Arexx commands. It would take a seasoned videographer to distinguish Vlab's MPEG output from the video. MacroSystems also demoed Xi-Paint software using its own Retina Z3 as the output device. Surprisingly, the 24-bit paint package seemed faster than most 8-bit paint programs on the market. (Watch for reviews of Vlab Motion 2.1 and Xi-Paint in an upcoming issue.) TW CD-ROM Gallery Need that extra bit of something for your animations? Amiga Library Services is offering a line of niultiplatform CD-ROMs for LightVVave users: Light- ROM 2 and Texture Gallery. Light-ROM 2 ($ 39.95) contains more than 650MB of scenes, textures, images, and objects. Texture Gallery ($ 44.95) is a two-clisc set of 24-bit textures from a wide variety of categories, including marble, skin, and rock, to name a few. Each disc includes a thumbnail directory for previewing images. Update Scan The CD 2001 ($ 2299) is a 20-inch display version of CD Solutions’ CD- I 401 desktop monitor. The monitor delivers .31mm dot pitch CRT* and up to 800x600 resolution on a non-glare screen with top-to-bottom display. The CD-2001 automatically syncs to a wide range of frequencies and has a wide video bandwidth ol 65 Ml Iz. Twist 2 ($ 149.95, Oregon Research), a relational database, will let you store any kind of Tile, including IFF, AN1M, and JPEG. It also offers full Arexx support for custom database programming, as well as various advanced options, such as External Sync Sync Trap ($ 29.95, PreVue Technologies) acids an auxiliary BNC to the Video Toaster 4000 on a separate connector plate; all four Toaster inputs can then be used for active video signals without any concern for the Toaster's sync reference signal. Sync Trap's connector plate installs onto an otherwise blocked expansion slot, thereby freeing input 1 on the Toaster 4000 board from being the dedicated sync input. (Note: a copper trace must be cut on the Toaster board in order for the Sync Trap to function properly.) Import and export capabilities, customized output, and a built-in editor. It requires a hard disk and one mcgabvte of RAM. Also from Oregon Research is Squirrel SCSI ($ 129.95), a PCMCIA SCSI-2 interface that lets you share up to seven devices between your A1200 and A600, including hard drives, CD-ROM drives, SyQuest drives, and tape drives. W hen you combine Squirrel SCSI with a CD-ROM drive you can even play CD-32 game titles on your A1200. Squirrel SCSI includes driver software, an audio utility to play Cds, and a CD- to-hard-drive sampler. AW Shucks! In the article “A Better Mouse” (January ’95, p. 18), I stated that I was unaware of any .Amiga programs that offered support for a third mouse button. It has been brought to my attention that several programs do indeed offer this support, including shareware utilities such as MMBShift (Preben Nielsen), MMB Commodity (Roland Janus), MultiCX (Martin Berndt) and Mouse Shift (Garrick Meeker). Most of these utilities can be found on Genie, CompuServe, or any Amiga-supporting BBS. On the commercial side, PageStream
3. 0 uses the third mouse button ro reposition a page within the view window. Also, Directory Opus uses the third mouse button as an alternative to the Amiga-M keystroke, which brings the Directory Opus screen to the front. Support for a third mouse button is becoming increasingly prevalent in many .Amiga applications, so check with your software vendor for additional information.

The public domain oilers a variety of Amiga utilities lor accessing the Internet' - so many, in fact, that the sheer number caught me by surprise when I tallied them up. Applications such as Amiga Mosaic, PPP, Amiga I CP IP (Transmission Control Protocol Internet Protocol programs) and an assortment ol other necessarv Amiga-specific utilities are readily available on traditional online services. One of the first items vou j need to get onto the Internet is Holger Kruse’s PPP
VI. 30, a SANA II-compati- blc PPP device that's needed for use with Ami'TCP I P. (SANA II is an Amiga network devicc-driver specification.) You'll need Kruse’s program, which usually appears as PP130.LHA, to enter your IP number (assigned to you when you obtain a PPP account). The device also provides a way to connect two Amigas via a PPP link. Another file that’s necessarv for newbies is HOW2 LSEPPP.LI LA. As its name implies, this is a text file describing how to get vour O O w PPP driver and connection configured. You’ll find (his file on both Aminet and Genie’s Amiga Roundtable, Amiga Mosaic and Other Alternatives Next, you'll need a copy of Amiga Mosaic and a copy of Ami TCP that’s compatible with your version ol Mosaic, of which there are four: 1.0,
1. 1. 1.2, and a demo version that's used for practice purposes, Briefly, 1.0 represents the basic, no-frills hypertext front-end to the Internet, while 1.1 oilers AmigaDOS-
3. X support, and 1.2 offers World Wide Web (WWW) browsing capabilities. All three non-den 10 archives should come with corresponding copies of Ami I'CP. Ami TCP is also available as a stancl-alone TCP IP Network package. AMITCP- B1N-22.LHA, a large (580K) archive, provides you with version 2.2 of the AmiTCP 1 CP IP network software. Fhe package also includes SANA II drivers for SLIP and for the A2060 and A2065 boards. .AmiTCP works with any network board that oilers a SANA II- compatible driver. Another file you might want to retrieve to improve your newfound surfing prowess is Archie 1.32, which commonlv appears as .ARCHIE 132.LHA. This utility by George L. d o Coulouris provides an Archie client for AmiTCP 3.0 and lets you query anonymous FTP databases. Another version, which appears as ARCHIE
38. 1 .LHA, is an Archie client for versions of AmiTCP earlier than 3.0. .Another useful Internet utility is the archive DIALUPV3_0ELI-IA, a SLIP PPP dialer that lets you get a connection using a SANA-compatible device.

I've always preferred Black Belt's I mage master as my Amiga image-processing program of choice. After seeing ImageFX 2.0, however, with its many paint, image-conversion, morphing, and effects tools, I'm impressed. What really sets it apart is its interface; it is the first Amiga image processor with an interface that yon need not merelv tolerate, but can actually enjov. The paint tools and effects gadgets behave more like a traditional paint program than those of either ADPro or Imagemaster, both of which seem n 7 unnecessarily complicated by comparison. Virtually all of the gadgets are “rollover” buttons that expand to a list of options when double-clicked. As a nice touch, context-sensitive AmigaGuide help is always a click away. Painting for Effect Although ImageFX lacks the sheer number of effects found in other image processors, you’ll find all the essentials and then some. The Transform menu, for instance, features 2-D and 3-D rotation, including a sophisticated tool for rotating radial strips of an image bv specifying different inner and outer radii. Video and 3-D artists will appreciate effects such as shear, roll, interlace, and deinterlace, as well. The Distort menu includes a variety of special effects that bear descriptive names like Warp, Swirl, and Dream (as in the traditional TV-style fade-lo-dream sequence). Uncommon tools like Finch and Punch lei you squeeze and distort images from a specified point, and Spheri .e maps an image around a sphere, complete with variable luminosity and an optional hotspot. The Effects menu contains many simulated painting effects such as Oil Paint, Roughen, and Straw. PaintFX applies thousands of cumulative brush strokes to an image and creates an infinite variety of eye-catching, natural textures. Radial Star, Lens Flare, and Lightning provide dynamic effects and like other tools in ImageFX provide a thumbnail of your image for a preview of the effect before execution. You can even use the mouse inside the thumbnail to configure most effects, such as where they occur and how much area to influence. Unlike real lightning, you can draw the exact path of ImageFX’s virtual bolts on screen. On the down side, in order to make previews occur quickly, the thumbnails are small and difficult to see. Built for Expansion A Hooks menu gives you access to expansion modules available through Nova Designs, third par- ties, and the public domain. Hooks included with the program invoke such external programs as CineMorph (bundled with ImageFX) and Opal- Paint. Many programs boast Arexx support, but here the Arexx button calls up a list of more than -10 prebuilt Arexx scripts that do everything from priming PhonePak faxes to creating Mpeff animations. In addition, vou can n , record your own Arexx macros from within ImageFX by telling the program to record your keystrokes and mouse scurries, making macro building ridiculously easy. Whether painting or processing, you can act on specific regions, brushes, or even the whole image at once. Like- wise, each paint-ancl-llll tool has a seemingly unlimited number of settings; paint modes can be dark or light, or done in relief, chalk, or crayon. You can also set that same painting tool for rubthrough, pantograph, or fade effects* and feather the edges to boot. There are a few things that ImageFX could do better. When creating regions, it requires you to get it right the first time. Imagemaster, on the other hand, lets you use the right mouse button to move regions around the screen as you are creating them. I missed this feature, which lets vou easily create precise masks. Stwl&i | Tmp«: S1 Light Radius: Briylitiwnsi C nt*r: | 6&7 RGBi r~Zgy| .

Lightning was added to the other wolf’s image, spherized, and pasted as a brush with slightly feathered edges. Though the control panel (bottom) is your primary interface to ImageFX, the program has a host of requesters that offer easy access to the program's expansive toolbag. Batching Two batch processors complement the program. In addition to tlie original Multi Processor, which required writing your own execution scripts, there’s now AutoFX. AutoFX is simple to use with a variety of prefabbed scripts, but it does lack power. Considering the wealth of effects available in ImageFX, it's disappointing that there’s no simpleway to create complex, multifaceted animations based on those tools. You'll have to be satisfied with AutoFX’s library of stock effects like rotating spheres and animated lightning unless you plan to pen the scripts yourself. A variety of graphic operators (illustration on opposite page) complement ImageFX 2.0. Converting the User The 400-page ImageFX manual is thoroughly indexed and fully illustrated, although the black- and-white screenshots sometimes fail to make the intended point.

Mere are two edit controllers, Nucleus Electronics’ Personal Editor and Future Video’s V-Station 3300, that both promise a lot of bang for the buck. Personal Editor If you've produced 3-D animation on the Amiga, chances are you’ve heard of Nucleus Electronics’ Personal Single Frame Controller, which lets your Amiga replace a dedicated single-frame controller for animation recording at a fraction of the usual cost. As the first product of its kind for I lie Amiga, it made single-lrame recording affordable O o for many animators. Now Nucleus strikes again with its Personal Editor, an edit controller that lists for an unbelievably low S645, The software uses the Amiga's serial port through the supplied cable to control two RS-422 VTRs (a source and a record deck) with timecode capabilities. Besides acting as an edit controller, the Personal Editor offers all of the Personal Single Frame Controller’s functions. Without needing an external GP1 connection, it supports a variety of display devices, such as GVP’s IV24, Impulse’s Firecracker 24, Digital (heations’ DC I V, and even NewTek’s Video 'Toaster. Connecting the cables and installing the soft-
o o ware takes about five minutes. Flie software communicates with the VTRs and reveals their model numbers a feature not found even on expensive edit controllers. From the main screen, you can control either your source or your record deck. Spoiled by very nice (and expensive) edit controllers equipped with jog shuttle controls, I was apprehensive about Personal Editor’s mouse-controlled software shuttle slider. But I was pleasantly surprised to find my decks operating with extreme precision. The Editor also uses the cursor kevs to control the t VTR mechanisms. Moreover, it took advantage of the precise and smooth transport system on my Mil decks an important consideration, because a well- V-Station 3300 For Toaster Future Video. S1295 System requirements: Two VTRs for Personal Editor; Video Toaster-equipped Amiga for V-Station 3000. R E V I K w s designed edit controller that’s easy on your equipment can save you a lot of money on YT R maintenance. Liom the main screen, you may perform a simple edit or move to other modules. From the Edit List Manager, you log source tapes by marking the start and end of shots and adding any pertinent comments. After logging is complete (you have up to nine lists), you move to the Edit List and import any shots you wish to include. The assembly process takes place automatically, with the edit controller prompting you to change tapes when necessary. You can export the Edit List to the industry-standard CMX format for assembly on another edit suite, and you can also import CMX lists. The main screen also lets you access the Animation Sequence Editor, which you can use to record a series of frames to tape, one frame at a time. Another option is the Time Lapse Recorder, which lets you use the Amiga to record time-compressed sequences, such as a whole day happening on your screen in a few minutes. You can record these i imc-delaved frames directly to vour edit j deck or to disk. One further handy feature is a SMPTE calculator with drop- frame and nondrop-frame operations. Taking into consideration all its line features and low cost, it’s hard to see how you could do better than the Personal Editor as long as you don’t need an A B roll- edit system. (Even if you’re an unregistered user of its Personal SEC, give Nucleus a calk You may easily be able to upgrade to ihe Personal Editor.) V-Station 3300 For Toaster If you do need A B roll editing, the V-Sta- tion 3300 may be the system for you. It uses Future Video’s Edit Link hardware- based controller to control two source and a record TR. Edit Link may be fully configured to work with professional decks, prosumer VTRs, and even camcorders not supported by the Personal Editor. The system I tested came configured for Mil broadcast Y’TRs and included all necessary cables. "Lite suggested price varies f rom $ 1295 to $ 1945 depending on configuration. Four disks for every option are available for free by request. The edit software also controls the Toaster internally, but you must trigger transitions through an external CPI connection (cable supplied). You must configure the software manually to work with your particular decks, but once this is done, you can save the configuration and not have to worry about it again. While VTR control is not as smooth as with the Personal Editor, it is perfectly acceptable, and the system handled Llie Y7TR transport mechanisms very well. Moreover, you can select from any Toaster source and designate which source is going to transition into another. The V-Staiion system includes plenty of editing options ordinarily found on high-end systems, and any experienced editor should be able to master it in just a lew minutes. Conversely, inexperienced users should be able to handle more complex systems with very little trouble after learning to edit on the V-Station. Experienced pros might be Continued on p.38. V The V-Station software lets you log n your scenes and aulo-assemble them from the edit list you create. While you cannot import or export lists, the Y -Sta- tion includes nice features such as Park and Perform that allow you to edit without having to worry about entering in and out points. It even lets you perform a GPI transition manually on the fly and enables you to tag events automatically so that you can perform match-frame edits.

Where the Hewlett-Packard 500C had the Held to itself just a little over two years ago (at a list price of nearly $ 1000), the market now sports a slew of excellent printers in the S500-S600 street-price range.

But Fargo and Epson have introduced we looked at the I IP DeskJet 550C, the Star Micronics SJ-I 14, the Canon BJC-600, and the Fargo Primera.

Do(oi' JSI it (aS +&AOII K OlOl' Jllj I X THE EARLY days of personal computing (that’s 10 to 15 years ago), Epson was the name in printers. No one else came close in features and pricing on tractor- fed dot-matrix printers. But recent years haven’t been as good to Epson. For one thing, it stayed at the dotmatrix dance too long. But the company is back in a big way with the new Color Stylus (S699). And we mean big, literally. Compared to the small footprint of the Canon BJC- 600 (13.7 inches wide by 6.3 inches deep), the Epson is huge, measuring a hefty 1872X20'A inches (including front paper-tray extension) Epson Color Stylus COLOR PRINTERS At A OUNCE Please note that prices given are manufacturer's suggested retail prices; almost all of these models have lower street prices some several hundred dollars less.

* This model is no longer available from manufacturer. Fthe dye-sub model of the original Primera lists for SI 245. XI Although HP claims 600x300 resolution for its DeskJet 560C (via software enhancement), the usable resolution for Amiga users remains at 300x300 dpi. And weighing 16.3 lbs. (the Canon is less than 10 lbs). This is not a small printer. The heart ol the Epson Color Stylus is its Multilayer .Actuator I lead (MACH) print head. Unlike the Canon, which uses heat to force the ink from its print head, the Epson mechanically forces ink from its -18 color-ink and 60 black-ink nozzles. This eliminates the need lor printhead replacement, as is required on die Canon. Unfortunately, Epson elected to use a tri-color cartridge much like the 1II* color printers along with a separate black cartridge. Iliis means that when one color runs out, all three get pitched a feature that can significantly raise your cost per print. Canon uses four individual color cartridges, a much friendlier and efficient scheme. A word here about resolution: The Epson features true 720x720-dpi resolution. True is the operative word since some manufacturers notably HP feature software-enhanced resolutions, or dot-addressahiliry schemes, which are useless to Amiga users. While the newer HP 560 may claim 600x300 resolution, its usable resolution is still only 300x300. Pretty Bu i Nor Perfect The Epson Color Stylus in 720x720 mode puts our superb, near-photographic quality prints. But the machine does have a few wai ts. First, 720-clpi mode is vtny slow. With four times the image information to process, the printouts take nearly four times as long as a 360-dpi print. For example, a one-third page 720-clpi color print of the girl with the red hat (see “Printer Test Comparisons” sidebar on p. 16) took 1 hour and 23 minutes on an nonaccelerated Amiga 1200. That translates to nearly P j hours for a full page print! Your driver and CPU speed will greatly affect those times. Occasionally, we also ran into handing problems with the Epson, hut not in a consistent manner. A cross-check on a PC-compatible platform, with Epson’s own driver, revealed no such handing. Printer guru Wolf Faust, who developed the Studio driver we used for testing the Epson, commented that the problem seemed to appear more often on slower Amigas such as the A1200 -where the print head had to wait long periods lor each hatch oi information. To gel good results in 720 mode, the Epson requires its own coated paper (and it recommends special paper for 360 dpi, as well). The good news is that Epson’s paper is reasonable coming in at about 13 cents per sheet compared to HP’s special papers. Colors on the Epson tended to he warmer and somewhat richer, hut not as vibrant as those of the Canon. But at 720 dpi the fine color shadings and detail from the 2d-bit images we used were truly outstanding. In the final analysis, the Epson Color Stylus is an excellent piece of work, turning out color prints that are very close to photographic in quality. The negatives of the unit include its large si e, very slow printing in 720-dpi mode, occasional handing, die need for special coated paper, and its single tri-color cartridge. But if you want superb text output at a reasonable price and are willing to put up with those admittedly minor disadvantages to achieve near-photographic quality output, then look no further. The Epson Color Stylus is the machine to have.
N. n j- ntnrra ]~ ro SO WHAT’S THE difference between the Fargo Primcra we looked at in May ’94 and Fargo's new Fargo Primera Pro ($ 1895)? Physically, not a thing. In terms of output, however, it’s a whole new enchilada. The original Primera handled both wax-transl'er and dve-sublimation printing with a maximum resolution oi 203x203 dpi. W hile that sounds low compared to inkjets or lasers, there are distinct benefits to the dye- sublimation process (in which solid dyes are converted into a gaseous state and then absorbed by the paper rather than being applied to the paper’s surface). The dithering in this process is so subtle that even at a rated 203 dpi, the images appears nearlv identical to a 1200xl200-dpi laser print in other words, almost continuous-lone photographic quality. In our original review we found the quality of the output nothing short of amazing, particularly when we considered that the Primera’s price was nearly $ 8000 less than its closest rival! But, as with the Epson, quality was achieved at the cost of speed. Fargo accomplished its breakthrough in printer technology by eliminating the on-board RISC processors common in high-end color and laser printers. All image processing was done inside the Amiga and that took awhile. It still does even with the Primera Pro. The difference, however, is that now the output- upped to (>00x300 is not simply “almost” photographic in quality . . . Primera Pro prints cannot be differentiated from continuous-tone, professional color-lab “c" prints! Working with 16-and 24-bit photo images in the Primera’s dve-sub mode, we achieved output that was astonishing in its clarity lacking am discernible dithering and possessing a high degree of subtlety in the shading. A Few Important Caveats The dyc-sublimation ribbon, however, is three-color ((A M), and. As with the old HP 5()()('., this can lead to some problems when it comes to reproducing true, rich blacks. Compounding this problem is Fargo’s such as Wolf Faust. With Faust’s Studio L)S driver, or those included with software such as Art Department Professional, Amiga users of the original Primera had a veiy full set of controls for color correction, gamma, contrast, brightness, and soon. While adequate to the task, the factory-supplied driver for the Primera Pro oilers little in the way ol control heyoncl lightening or darkening the final print. There .v a hidden set ol controls within the driver, hut absolutely no instructions on their use We opted therefore to use Primera’s default settings, and the slightly greenish tones you will notice in the test panel (see the “Printer Test Comparisons” sidebar) reflect both the absence ol such correction and the type ol blacks you can expect with a three-color process. On the other hand, we noted in our original review that the Primera’s major weak spot was its handling of text. Because of the printing process used and the relatively low resolution, type had a jaggv, rough appearance making the Primera quite unsuitable for critical text work. Readers will note from the test panel that this is no longer a problem. The type sizes represented there (8-, 10-, 12-, 60-, and 84-point) are all well formed and the equal of any inkjet and even most laser printers. Unfortunately, type output from the three-color dye- sub ribbon does exhibit a veiy noticeable greenish tint, just as with the photographs. A black-only dye-sub ribbon, however, is available for text-only work. Although this review has focused primarily on the Primera’s dye-sublimation mode, it should be noted that the printer performed equally well using the wax- transl'er method. Colors were bright, well-saturated, and veiy close to the Epson in overall quality. But, again, lack of suitable controls limited our ability to tweak and fine-tune the images. Also, those using n ' o switchbox setups will be happy to learn that Fargo apparently has corrected the original machine's tendency to balk at such arrangements.

Es That’s exactly what 3-D THE AMIGA WAS a true pioneer in the area of 3-D landscape generation on personal computers. Almost as soon as researchers had figured out the algorithms for generating 3-D landscapes, public-domain software showed up that allowed the Amiga to create them. Commercial software followed shortly thereafter, and the Amiga has set the pace ever since. Only recently have other platforms begun to catch up. The Real, the Unreal, and the Surreal Landscape-generation programs can create very realistic images of actual locations by reading and interpreting Digital Elevation Model (DEM) files, which are developed from data gathered by the United States Geological Survey, (For more information on DEMs, see the sidebar on p. 20.) Once you have loaded the DEM data into your landscape program, you can then modify the parameters that determine how your finished rendering will look. You can change lighting, point of view, insert tree lines and snow lines, and more. Some programs even let you edit the landscape data, so that you can J I i flatten the top of Ml Baldy or cut a gorge the si e of the Grand Canyon into the Iowa plains. If you’d like to generate landscapes that have nothing at all to do with reality, these programs will do that, too. You can make your own by hand with the appropriate editor, or you can let your program do the hard work for you. You can generate random fractal landscapes by taking a triangle, dividing it into three subtriangles, and pushing the center point up or down. This process is then repeated on the subtriangles for a set number of iterations. Depending on bow may triangles you use and how far you push them up or down, you can end up with a subtly rolling landscape or mountains higher than the Himalayas. These so-called “random” landscapes are not really random; they are usually generated from a seed number you supply. II you type in the same seed number, you gel the same landscape. However, with millions ol potential seed numbers, you’ve got millions of potential landscapes available to explore. It’s also possible to take an IFF image and translate it into a 3-D landscape. The color of each point on the x-y plane of the picture is interpreted as a different height, and that is plotted as a 3-D landscape. Of course, you can end up with some veiy strange landscapes this way for example, a mountain that's based on a digitized image of your face. (Stand aside, Mt. Rushniore!) The Grand Canyon, rendered by Scenery Animator. Apply Yourself .All this may sound like fun. But what is it good for? One 7 o answer is, “What's wrong with having a little fun?” But there are real-world uses for these programs, too. If you’re into computer graphics and animation (you do own an Amiga, don’t you?), then you can use these programs to generate realistic scenes for your illustrations or movies. If you're a digital artist, for example, you can generate an image of your local landscape, then finish it ofl by adding buildings and roads in their
o n actual locations; or you can create a totally new landscape of your own. If you’re an animator, you could try this trick: Generate a scene of a fiat plain, then generate successive frames, increasing the heights of mountains rising out the plain. Played back, this sequence is like the dramatic mountain-building scene from “Rite of Spring” in Disney’s Fantasia. Even more spectacular is a high-speed “fly-by” of a mountain or a deep gorge, complete with barrel-rolls! You can even pick a high, straight-down viewpoint and step sideways from frame to frame, simulating the view from the window of your own Space Shuttle mission. If you're a photographer, you can generate images of a real-wor ld mountainscapc from clilTerent vantage points and under differem lighting conditions to find an interesting view before you hike 20.000 feet up a mountain, only to find that the view would have been even more spectacular from the next peak over. Scientists and environmentalists can study the topography of the earth from many angles and under a variety of conditions, supplementing field work from the comfort of their computer terminals. In other words, as with all Amiga creativity software, the usefulness of landscape-generalion software is limited only by your imagination. Rolling Your Own Landscapes Creating a fractal landscape with any landscape-gen- eration program is a step-by-step process, with many variables to consider and lots of potential pitfalls along the way. But if you start out small and work your way up to more complex projects, reading the manual as you go, the process is relatively painless. The first step in the process involves creating or loading some form of terrain map. This can involve loading a DEM file, creating a DEM file of your own using a terrain-map editor, generating a “random” landscape, or translating an I EE image. Once a terrain map is created or loaded, you can make a multitude of adjustments to it. Fractal detail can be added or taken away: You can usually select a small section of the terrain map and zoom in on it, or place a border to limit the area rendered. Scaling lets you adjust the amount of rise or drop, effectively turn in ir mountains into molehills or vice-versa. After you have adjusted your terrain to your liking, vou can add anv of a multitude of details. You can usually set a tree line and snow line to determine the aid- ¦ 2) twA,fuirtvvtirt JjHvui&cayw THERE ARE MANY good PD and shareware landscape programs available for the .Amiga, as well as some fractal-generation programs that produce natural-looking plants, trees, and clouds that you can cut and paste into your landscapes. The following are all available on Fish disks. You can also look lor them online on Aminet, commercial online services, or an Amiga BBS near you.

You can set sea level, and watch the land recede into the depths; river and lake options let you fill in low spots to create lakes, or start rivers Mowing downhill, following the contours of the terrain. Some landscape generators allow you to place a variety of individual trees, buildings, or other objects into vour image. And you can add clouds to the sky, O * or even call up a night sky full of stars. Once all the details are in place, you'll want to set the values that determine how you'll actually see the landscape. First, you pick your camera position. Next, you set a point at which your camera is aimed. You might want to preview how your scene will look in a preview window. After the shot is set up. You can adjust lighting by moving the sun. Some programs even let you adjust haze settings that determine how much objects blur as they recede. Finally, you can define camera settings, from lens type to field and depth of view. You can even lilt the camera! Once you have set everything to your liking, you can select the type of image you want to render. Screen size, color depth, and overscan are all user-selectable. Some programs even support third-party graphics hoards. At litis point, you can choose the degree of detail rendered. Which also affects rendering speed. You'll want to render test images with less detail and at lower resolutions to save time, then set them higher for a final rendering- which may take all niglu, depending on your system. If you want movement, you can create animations. Some programs let you define movement paths, and will generate animations automatically. I lowever, vou O 4 r may have to use an additional program, or even save individual frames that you can then assemble with the help ol DeluxePaint or an Amiga animation program. Amiga Landscape-Generation Programs Now that von know what’s involved in generating vour ' O n v own 3-1) landscape images, here’s a quick rundown of the landscape-generation packages available for the Amiga. Currently, you can get three excellent commercial programs: Scenery Animator ($ 99.95, Natural Graphics), VistaPro ($ 99.95, Virtual Reality Labs), and World Construction Set ($ 250, Qjuestar Productions). (To locate the vendors of these programs, see the “At anufacturers' Distributors' Addresses ” list o)i p. 58.) A fourth, Hollyware's Genesis, is no longer being sold, though it lives on in a freely distributable demo version. I here are also many PL) and shareware programs available (see the sidebar on p. 18). Scenery Animator (reviewed in the Dec ’93 issue of Amiga World, p. 21) made its dehut years ago as a PD program called "Scenery" on Fish Disk 155. It evolved into Scene Generator, then became Scenery Animator. It is the easiest to use of the three Amiga landscape generators, with an intuitive, button-based interface and an integral 3-D preview screen. You can "drive" around the preview screen using on-screen arrow buttons, and can swap over to a map screen for the whole "top-down" view. Scenery Animator also has excellent built-in animation features. Though it is powerful enough for serious users, its ease of use definitely makes it the best landscape-generation program for the casual user, artist, or animator. VistaPro 3.1 (reviewed in the Jul. ’93 issue of AmigaWorldy p. 20), gives you an incredible amount of control over a generated image. The main screen presents you with an almost overwhelming array of buttons and options, and clicking on almost any button brings up even more buttons! Fortunately, the user- friendly manual can lead you through the whole process with little difficulty. Though it might he somewhat daunting for the weekend dabbler, VistaPro is an excellent choice for the graphics professional. There is. However, no wav to edit DKMs in VistaPro, so you’ll ? The Vista Pro main screen (left), and (right) a scene generated by Vista Pro. Also need TerraForm 2.0 ($ 25), a 2-1V3-D terrain editor that lets you create your own VistaPro maps. II you want to create animations, you’ll also want MakePath ($ 25), which creates animation paths. Both are available from Virtual Reality Libs. World Construction Set (reviewed in the Jan. ’95 issue of Amiga World, p. 42) is the newest of the three Amiga landscape generators. Aimed at a slightly different market, its forte is creating higli-view DEM maps that look like photos taken from space. It allows you an incredible amount of control over esoterics like ecosystem definition. However, it doesn’t generate “random” fractals at all (though that is promised for a future version). It is also a complex program to use, with a plethora of buttons, windows, and screens to wade through before you can generate an image. I be manual is in what I would call a “state of transition,” and rendering times are long. Still, its images are impressive, and it is constantly being improved. Although it doesn’t publish a landscape generator of its own, MegageM makes two support programs.Cue of these, Fractal Pro ($ 149.95; reviewed in AW, Oct. '93), can compute ten different fractal equations (including the Mandelbrot set) and save the results as DEM Files, which you can then load into VistaPro or Scenery Animator to create 3-1) scenes based on fractal data. The other, Scapemaker 3.0 ($ 49.95), converts IFF images into VistaPro format DEM files. It can also logically combine landscapes, enabling you, for example, to seamlessly merge Mt. Fuji into a pastoral Iowa farm scene. Scapemaker features dual on-screen DEM displays and Arexx support. Now that you know more about what is possible in landscape-generation on the Amiga, you can use these programs to create rich images of real locations or to fulfill your visions of imaginary worlds. ¦ Mark R. Brown authored Aws article on fractal imagery in the Feb. ’95 issue. Write to him do AmigaWorld. Editorial Dept., PO Box 802, 80 Elm St., Peterborough. NH 03458. A DIGITAL ELEVATION MODEL (DEM) consists of a sampled array of elevation data for ground positions at regularly spaced intervals. The 1-degree DEM data available from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) covers, in blocks one degree square, all of the contiguous United States, Hawaii, and most of Alaska. (The USGS also distributes 7.5-minute, 15-minute, and 30-minute DEMs.) The basic elevation model is produced by the Defense Mapping Agency, but is distributed by the EROS Data Center in the DEM data-record * ViM ilis format. One-degree DEMs are also referred to as “3- arc second” or “ 1:250,000-scale” DEM data. The majority of the 1-degree DEMs are produced from cartographic and photographic sources. The topographic features (contours, drain lines, ridge lines, lakes, and spot elevations) are first digitized and then processed into the required form and spacing. An ascii DEM file is organized into three logical records: types A, B, and C. The type-A record contains information defining the general characteristics of the DEM, including the DEM name, boundaries, units of measurement, minimum and maximum elevations, number of type-B records, ancl projection parameters. There is only one type-A record per DEM file. Type- B records contain profiles of elevation data and associated header information. There is a type-B record for each profile. Type-C records contain statistics on the accuracy of the data. If you have anonymous FTP access to the Internet, you can download DEM files from edcftp.cr.usgs.gov in the director)' pub data dem. This directory contains the 1 ;250,000-scale DEMs for the contiguous United States. The files have been compressed with the GNU “gzip” utility', which is available for the Amiga from any Aminet site on die Internet. A complete explanation of the 1 ;250,000-scale DEM format can be found in the USGS National Mapping Program Technical Instructions, Data Users Guide number 5 (known as “Digital Elevation Models”), a v a i 1 a b 1 e for a small fee from the Earth Science Information Center, US Geological Survey, 507 National Center, Reston, VA 22092; 783 648-6045 or 800 USA-MAPS; FAX: 783 648-5548. If you have access to the World Wide Web (WWW), you can also obtain information about the DEM data set at the following URL address; http: edcwww.cr.usgs.gov giis hyper guide 1 _clgr_dem Commercial DEM Files Scenery Animator, VistaPro, and World Construction Set all have their own DEM formats, although the)' can also load and translate USGS DEMs. Each vendor offers DEM data for major portions of the United States (and, in at least one case, parts of Mars, too). Though it’s hard to heat the price of the free USGS data online, it can take hours to download even one DEM file. For example, just one of the two DEM files for the Denver area is almost 10 megabytes in size, and over 3 megabytes compressed! Natural Graphics offers dozens of floppy disks full of DEM files for Scenery Animator at $ 10 each, and Virtual Reality Labs also sells dozens of different scenery disks for VistaPro at $ 34.95 each or five for S60, Questar Productions has gigabytes of DEM data for World Construction Set on floppies or on Syquest removable cartridges. Sets of two floppy disks (the same scale as the others) are $ 35 each. Many other resolutions are available on request. D mrb f you have mastered some of the basics of a morphing program such as MorphPlus, but can't seem to achieve the kind of results you see on TV, mavbe vou with MorphPlus Check out these expert tips plus sample project designed, to get MorphPlus users morphing and warping like the pros. J 4 need to hone your techniques a little before moving on to the next stage. While this article is not a tutorial, it will outline some basic guidelines that you can use to make good-looking morphs. The examples provided here refer to MorphPlus (Elastic Reality), but you can apply many of the concepts presented to other morphing packages, such as Imagemaster (Black Bek Systems) and ImageFX (Nova Design). We’ll assume you are familiar with the basic tools of MorphPlus (vectors, points, and edges), but it's a good idea to keep your users' guide handy for reference. (For a complete review of MorphPlus, see May ’93, p. 83, Also, consult reviews of other morphing packages, including Imagemaster R t, Jan. ‘94, p. 14; ImageFX, May '93, p. 19: and ImageFX 2.0 in this issue, p. 8.) First Things First The first thing you need to decide is what kind of morphing effects you want to perform. These can range BY CHRIS EDGIN M 0 R P II P I I S from a simple cross dissolve to a complex morph where different areas of die image change shape and texture. Y mr next step is to choose your source material. In some cases, you may lind dial the efiect you want to perform is just not feasible with the source material you have. Generally, it is better to decide upon the ellect to perform and obtain source material to match. The example used here is a classic (ace morph, in which we morph tin* face of a woman into die lace of a man. While this does not really show some of the fancier effects you can achieve, it will illustrate how to obtain a smooth-looking, believable morph. Keep in mind that the morphing program cannot create data that does not exist; it can only transform the material you provide it with. Once you have suitable source material, you can now go about the task of defining the morph. In our MorphPlus example, you accomplish this by placing vectors around key features 011 the subjects’ faces. Figure 1 illustrates how the vectors are defined. Basically, you must place vectors on corresponding features in both the source and destination images. In this case, notice how the overall shapes ol the heads are outlined, as well as the nose, eyes, and other more specific character lines 011 the subjects’ faces. Keep in mind that the most effective morphs are achieved when the source and destination images are veiy similar. In fact, in many productions that you see on television, the creators have gone to great lengths to assure that their morphing materials were similar. Once the main features are outlined, you can perform a test render to see what you have so far. By doing this, you can see what areas still need work and what areas vou can leave alone. One trick that Hollywood 4 r professionals often employ is to use relatively low-res- olution versions of their images so they can spend more time working on the morph and less time rendering. This is critical when a deadline is near and you have to render images at film resolutions that can be upwards of 4000x4000 pixels. It becomes quite clear that it is better (and faster) to use images that are much smaller (say, 640x480) for the design and testing stages of your morph. .As long as your smaller images have the same aspect ratio as your larger ones, MorphPlus will scale vour vectors to match vour larger images when the time comes to do the final render. The Morpher’s Edge When placing your vectors and defining edges, it is veiy important to remember a few key things. First, think of the entire workspace as an elastic sheet of rubber. When you pull on one portion of it, the effect is not limited to that area, but will affect the entire sheet (just as in real life). If you are not careful, you could get unwanted stretch marks in the morph. These can he avoided, however, through the use of a strategically placed set of points connected by an edge. Points act as nails or tacks placed in the sheet of rubber to prevent the effect from spreading to other regions of the morph. The edge extended between the points acts like a hunch of little points in between the main points. Edges are a veiy important factor in making a good- looking morph, as an edge acts like many little vectors or points between the main vectors or points. Basically, edges save you from having to draw literally thousands ol vectors to define your morph. Instead, you need only ?

In Figure 2. Notice how edges are used to define the O O outer regions of the face and the key areas of the morph, such as die nose, eyes, and mouth. It is important to keep the outer edges (particularly the ones outlining the head) as close as possible to the subject’s features. A tearing effect may occur, for instance, if a portion of the subject’s hair falls outside the edge or if a piece of the background is included inside the edge. You may have to add more vectors to eliminate this problem. A Group Approach .Also, when placing vectors and points, remember to place diem on corresponding features on I lie source image as well as on the destination image. You may find it easier to view your vectors as source only, place them, and then switch your view (and vectors) to the destination image, where you place them accordingly on corresponding features. In addition, you will probably find it easier if you deal with your morph on a fea- ture-bv-feature basis concentrating on a particular spot (such as the eyes). When you've finished with each individual area, hide that group of vectors and begin work on the next feature (say, the ears). Grouping is a convenient way to handle large numbers of vectors and points. Grouping your vectors allows you to hide or show them as a batch. In addition, i grouping allows you to take advantage of MorphPlus’s group-motion and transparency controls. By grouping your vectors, you can save them as separate files to use in other projects or to simplify the current one. If you save your vector groups to disk, you can avoid having to place an entire new set of vectors if you want to use the old ones (somewhat like a pattern) in other projects. Figure 3 demonstrates how Morph Plus’s Group editor can group different sets of vectors.

Part 1 Five-Minute Arexx DON’T START YOUR timerjust yet exploration. But how? 'Uteres a lot of talk, but little a little preliminary groundwork is nee- by way of practical example. And why Arexx, anyway t essarv first. Everyone probably knows Because Arexx is a programming language for the something about Arexx, has at least Amiga, an expanded version of REXX, the "Resume- heard that software with an Arexx port tut eel Extended Executor” language coined at IBM. It is desirable, and that Arexx is wort hy of is often labeled a scripting, macro, or even “inter- BV [WARD ). CORK proccss-communicaiion” language: such terms just skirt the edges, describing subsets of Arexx’s capabil- itics. It is all of those things, and more. It is a full- fledged, extendable language, and as delivered it is an "interpreted” language. This simply means that Arexx programs are retained in ilieir humanly readable form, with each line read and translated into computerese every time die program is run. Such translation takes time, of course, making for slower operation in comparison with “compiled,” or machine-language, programs. As this is true of all interpreted languages, don't let it bother you: just be aware of it. Arexx, then, is a tool a powerful one. It is symbolized bv the REXX: device, which you may have noticed in listings of system assignments. II you know that Arexx is already running on your machine, that’s great; the first step is done. If you’re not sure, use the “Quick Tip” below to find out. Handling the Tool As with any tool, the proper use of Arexx requires thought and planning. What do you want to build using vour Arexx hammer? I lere are some possibilities:
• Nail an opening lile requester to a program that doesn’t provide one. So that you can easily search for and select a work lile.
• Before starting a desktop-publishing program, reassign FONTS: to a different location so you access a specialized set of fonts more quickly; then, when the program ends, set FONTS: back to its original location.
• Enhance Abcxx-compatiblc commercial software bv adding commands and functions of vour own invention. Prime candidates are TurboText, Art Quick Tip h REXX There? IE YOU DON’T know whether Arexx is up and running on your system, open a Shell or CLI window, type assign REXX: exists and hit the Return key. You should get the response REXX System2.1:Rexxc or something similar. If you get a “ . . . Not assigned” message, try typing SYS:SYSTEM RE XMAST, press the Return key, and try the "assign ..." command again. If you still don’t get the above response, then Arexx isn’t available and it’s time to contact an Amiga-knowledgeable friend, local users’ group, or bullet in-board system (BBS) for help. Department Pro, Imagemastcr R l, and even the Video Toaster software.
• Launch that “Shell-only” program by simply doubleclicking an icon you know, the program that required you to First open a Shell window, make an obscure assignment, type in a deeply nested lile path, and then type cryptic command-option codes before finally hitting Return. And on and on; these are just what came quickly to mind. 1 know they’re possible because they, plus a lot more, have already been done. But what about exploring Arexx? How can you gel your head around this language? One wav is to start with the seven-line OCT a “heart” of a program a code fragment. You write Arexx programs using a text editor or a word processor. It must be capable of saving straight ascii text (maybe labeled "text only”) and must create a Project icon upon saving a lile. Commercial products (TurboText or ProWrite, for example) or public- domain editors (e.g., 1)ME on Fish disk 530) will senc very well. I will assume you know how to manipulate Workbench windows and how to open a Shell (or CLI) window. You should also have Arexx version 1.15 (dated Nov. ’90) or later properly installed and up and running on vour machine. Your Arexx documentation n gives its version; if you’re running AniigaDOS 2.x or later, you’re all right. Ready? Start up your text editor or word processor. Start vour five-minute timer. Type the following, and don’t worry about indenting and blank lines. Such formatting helps make it easier to read, but leading spaces and blank lines are ignored by Arexx. I* OneLiner.codefrag.rexx * greeting = "READY = >" options prompt greeting do forever parse pull line interpret line end Save it as rexx:OneLiner.codefrag.rexx Remember to save it only as asc ii text, so no hidden word-processor codes get added to it. Bring Workbench to the front, open a shell, type rx rexx:OneLiner.codefrag.rexx and hit the Return key. (In subsequent instructions, [RETURN] means press the A R E X I* A K I I Return key.) You should see a new “READY= >” prompt appear in the Shell window, with the cursor waiting right behind it. You do?Thenvou are now a programmer! Or ¦ I o at least you ve taken that first tiny step to becoming one. Now type in X = 128 [RETURN]. Then type SAY X [RETURN]. ‘*128” should appear on a line by itself between the last prompt and the one you’re at now. If it does, you’re doing fine; if it doesn’t and you get no error message, end the program by typing EXIT. [RE 11 RN], and you should be back to your normal shell prompt. If you do get an error message, you've already been dumped back to your original shell. Go back into your editor and recheck your typing. Use any error message as a clue to what might be wrong. The first line, die * . . . * stuff, must be there; check spelling, quolation-mark pairs, and so on. This one should be easy to debug (famous last words!). This little program creates a fully interactive environment. Allowing real-time experiments with Arexx instructions and functions. It accepts one line of input, up to 255 characters, then performs Arcxx’s magic on it when you press RE TURN. “Interactive” means that the program keeps running, remembering all variables created and any adjustments you’ve made unless you make an error or type EXIT. Enter .ARexx instructions, assign values and strings to variables, manipulate them to your heart's content, and then perhaps use the SAY instruction to examine the results. Probing Deeper I et’s open the door a little wider. At OneLiner.code- frag’s prompt, type SAY ADDRESSQ [RETURN]. The reply tells you what Arexx port is currently being talked to; it should be “REXX.” Type ADDRESS COMMAND [RETURN|, then type SAY ADDRESSO [RE TURN] again. The reply, “COMMAND,’* says that you can now talk directly to AmigaDOS. Try typing LIST [RET URN]. Your current disk directory should go scrolling by. When that finishes, type just ADDRESS (no parentheses this time) [RETURN]. Type SAY ADDRESSO again to see where you are now. Back at “REXX.” right? You’ve just discovered that Arexx starts with a default port, REXX, and if you change that a few times with the Address instruction, you can use the Address function (the one with the parentheses) to tell you which is current. You get the idea. Pick other Arexx expressions and explore them in the same manner. When vou’re ready to quit, type EXIT [RETURN]. Now for some interesting fun! We’ll adjust One- Liner.codefrag’s icon for launch with a simple doubleclick of the mouse. At Workbench, open the RAM disk and find the document icon for OneLiner.codefrag.rexx. Click the icon -just once this time. Select Info . . . Or Information . . . From Workbench’s Icons menu to open the icon-informalion window. Go to the Default Tool text box, delete whatever is there, type RX in its place, and then click on Save. Back at Workbench, the RAM disk should still be open and the OneLiner.codefrag.rexx icon should look the same. Double-click the icon. You should again see the interactive window, with the now-familiar “REA1)Y=>“ prompt. You do? T hen you are now an applications programmer! Or at least you’re on the way. A few notes on usage of OneLiners: First, instruction groups like DO . . . END, or IF . . . TI1EN will work, but they must also lit the one-line limitation. Use semicolons to separate the pieces; for example, try: DO 5 ; SAY "Hello, AmigaWorld!" ; END You should he able to guess what will happen. Second, to experiment with any of the functions in the Rexx Support Library (such as DELAY, SI IOWDIR. SHOWLIST, etc.), insert a line in the OneLiner.codefrag.rexx program immediatelv above the "greeting = . . . ” line: j n n call addlib("rexxsupport.library",0,-30,0) If there are other libraries’ functions you want to play with, such as rexxarplib and rexxmathlib, initialize them in the same way. Add additional “call . . . ” lines to the base program, replacing “rexxsup- port.library” with the appropriate name. Then restart the program. T hird, OneLiner.codefrag.rexx is a bare-bones program. It has no error-trapping or problem-reporting features. II you make an entry or programming error, the program will exit. Upon restarting it, you'll have to reinitialize all needed variables. Experiment and learn, and next time we’ll explore further Arexx program elements. ¦ Edward . Dorr, a self-employed engineer and consultant, uses his AMIGAs extensively for business find pleasure.

By Joel Hagen
• -o 2 April 995 WHEN YOU TRAVEL, do you bring back little souvenirs of the journey that were too interesting to throw away, yet later just wind up occupying drawer space? I’m thinking of things like ticket stubs, sugar packets, maps, menus, corks, pebbles, and other odds and ends. If so, this month's column explores the idea of incorporating such memorabilia into a digital scrapbook using your Amiga with a scanner or video digitizer. This can be a fun post- travel project, and you can effectively apply the techniques to professional illustration. As Time Goes By On any Lrip, save all the little things that catch vour interest. Bring them j O back to your Amiga and arrange them on a scanner or under a digitizing camera. Capture and save images of these compositions, and they become digital scrapbooks of your travels that you can share with friends as easily as snapshots. This seemingly simple idea has more potential than might at first meet the eve. J You need not limit your scanner arrangements to flat items. Small three-dimensional objects such as pins, stones, arrowheads, shells, fishing lures, or any other intriguing debris can be scanned fairly effectively. Ordi- narily, you save a pebble or a wine cork because it has associations for you at that moment with certain other things or experiences. Months later, out of context, the cork is often just a cork, the pebble just a pebble. It can be especially difficult to convey the original associations to others who did not share the experience with you. The creation of a digital scrapbook gives you the opportunity to preserve associations as well as images of objects. The wine cork, perhaps a memento of a special celebration, could be arranged on a scanner along with a menu from the cafe where the celebration took place. Add to this composition a page torn from a calendar, an autumn leaf pocketed that day, or anything else that seems appropriate, and the image preserves an entire experience. Digital journals also can be great family projects. After an outing, let the kids put together a digital scrapbook of the clay’s experiences. Have them save leaves, pebbles, bones, maps, and sketches. As they create the scrapbook, they can add text and labels if that seems desirable. In working on such a project, von should protect the glass bed of the scanner with a sheet of clear acetate before littering it with rocks and foliage. Before scanning, you can lay a piece of heavy fabric over everything as an opaque background. You may be surprised at how well three- dimensional objects scan. You will probably get some colored ghosts or auras around the edges of objects that are raised from the scanner surface, but these color artifacts are interesting and can be accepted as part of the look of the technique. If you are using a video camera and frame-capture board to input images into your Amiga, you have even more freedom to incorporate 3-D objects into your scrapbook. You may find it most effective to aim the camera straight down at a framed region of a table within which vou make all vour j arrangements. That frame is the area the computer will capture. If you work within those boundaries, you will not 7 need to take time to adjust your physical setup for each image. If you are using a scanner, you can usually create a bounding box in the preview window tliat is the size of a full-screen Amiga image at whatever pixel resolution you like. From then on, that box can be positioned on any scanner preview to capture a screen-size image for your scrapbook. Easy Does It Freedom from fussing with equipment is one of the most important aspects of the digital-scrapbook idea. These arrangements should be fast and fun. You see immediately in the computer image if the composition is what you want. If it is not, you simply rearrange the elements and try again. This is a of mementos or other odds and ends into an interesting digital composition. J o playful way to encapsulate a trip, to refresh your memories, to retrace a journey. The arrangements should follow your whims, and die mechanics of capturing the images should be free of bother. II this kind of project becomes a major undertaking, you will probably never try ii more than once. Oil the other hand, if you keep the mechanics simple, you may begin making digital journals as casually as you take snapshots. Your digital journals are not intended to replace snapshots. They are a way to make use of a different medium to communicate in a different way. You will find as you do more and more digital assemblages that you develop a visual vocabulary quite different from your style of photography. In fact, you may hud this a way to salvage a photo that holds an important memory for you, hut is otherwise unremarkable. In a digital scrapbook, it becomes a new compositional element and takes on new life. It can reflect new meaning bv
o t the way in which von associate it with
* other images or objects. The photo of the Vostok rocket in the accompanying illustration was an underexposed and basically uninteresting snapshot. It has greater interest, however, in this digital-scrapbook page by its association with other memorabilia from a trip I took to Russia. 1 used ImageTX 2 (Nova Design) to brighten the photo within the overall scanned image. Cycling the Region Selector to Poly made it easy to outline the photograph with a few mouse clicks. In the Fill Requester, I set Edge to Feather In with a Radius of 3. This allowed soft-edged color correction within a limited region by using the 0 0 Balance controls. I also raised Gamma until the image of the rocket brightened and showed better detail. You can use similar techniques to reduce color ghosts at the edges of scanned objects. ImageFX 2 has a nice color- scan preview with excellent controls and effects options that make it a perfect scanner interface for projects like this. Its painting and photo-manipulation tools give you everything you need for touch-up. Your digital scrapbook can he as simple as a series of pictures viewed with a directory utility like Diskmaster or Directory Opus. At a more complex level, you might use authoring software to control the display of the images in the scrapbook. This gives you the opportunity to add sound clips, transitions, and other effects. My choice is to J keep it simple. Anything that adds to the effort of keeping a digital scrapbook takes away from its spontaneity and reduces the odds that you will stick with it and find a style within the form. There are many professional opportunities for artists who have developed a fresh look in digital illustration, especially in the emerging multimedia industry. ¦ J Joel Hagen's credits include work in art, astronomy, science fiction, and software development.

2. X 3,x compatible. Minimum system: A1200. Recommended system: Same as tn illinium. Accelerator and RAM expander for the A1200. For the A1200 owner who feels the need for speed, but also wants to practice a little fiscal responsibility, DKB may have come up with just the right answer: the Cobra accelerator board. Its performance isn't breathtaking, but for the A1200 owner still plodding along at 14 Mhz with 2MB of slow chip RAM, the Cobra comes as a revelation. Open Wide and Install The Cobra is designed for the A 1200’s bottom-side expansion slot, and the manual savs you'll have it installed in a minute or less. Not likely. The Cobra is a snug fit and requires more than a little jiggling just to gel the computer’s male card and the board's female connector lined up. T hen you have to figure out how to push the board onto the male connector with no finger space at the far end of the Cobra card. There are two small boles into which you can get a very small screwdriver to use as a leverage device, but DKB does not recommend doing this. Rather, they advise that a push on the 150-pin connector should help. The Cobra conies with a 68030 chip (the full version with MM I ) running at 28 Mhz. It also includes a socket for an optional math coprocessor and a single SIMM socket for RAM expansion that’s designed to accommodate the 72-pin SIMMs available at any computer store in sizes of 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 megabytes. (If you can afford them, 32, 64, and 128 megabytes arc also supported.) I used a 1x32 SIMM, which translates into 4MB of last RAM. Promised by DKB, but not available at the time of this review, is an optional SCSI adapter that mounts to the Cobra. Double Your Fun Once the board is in, the lid closed down again, and the power on, the performance-standard testing program, AIBB. Reveals that the Cobra provides integer performance 1.97 times faster than a stock A1200 with 4MB of fast RAM and
2. 6 times faster than a stock 2MB machine. My test unit didn't come with the optional Floating Point Unit, but if you use software that supports a 68881 or 68882 math chip (3-D rendering, CAD CAM, and some 24-hit graphics programs), you can expect an improvement of 8 to 10 times in floatine-math calculation speed! Along with the board, DKB supplies a software program that moves Kickstart into fast RAM if you’ve installed a SIMM chip on the Cobra. Although DKB claims that this further increases performance. AIBB revealed little, if any, improvement. DKB has enjoyed a fine reputation for turning out solid hardware at reasonable prices, and the Cobra accelerator is no exception. With a street price of around Si60, its ability to at least double the working speed of most A 1200s, its industry-standard SIMM RAM-expansion capability, and the promised SCSI- adapter add-on, the Cobra deserves a very high rating indeed. For speed demons on a tight budget, I recommend the Cobra highly. And for those with a few more bucks to spare, stay tuned for some new, faster A1200 accelerators from DKB.

2. X 3.x compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Minimum system: IMB, WB 2.0. or later, hard drive. Recommended system: Accelerator. 4MB, PostScript printer. Option-laden word-processing software. When Soft-Logik recently started distributing Digita International’s Wordworth 3.1 (WW3.1) word processor, there was cause for celebration. Along with Softwood’s Final Writer 3, it’s one of the only two major commercial word processors that remain available for the Amiga market. Designed in the UK and sold there for years, Wordworth is a full-featured, j 7 professional word processor that many Amiga users on these shores have longed to enjoy. With so many recent Amiga products exhibiting an air of hasty programming and packaging, it's refreshing to receive a serious package with a high-quality, bound 340-page instruction book and separate Print Manager booklet. In Place and Running To create this review with anv other word j processor would be blasphemous. I therefore wrote this review with Word- worth 3.1 installed on both an A4000 using 053.1 and an A2000 operating under OS2.1. The four disks comprising the package use the standard Amiga Installer program, making installation a relatively speedy process. The Installer places numerous items on your hard disk, including the program, a thesaurus, a spelling checker, AmigaGuide Examples of text and graphics in Word- worth 3.1. Help Files, additional disks of TrueType fonts, and a welcome assortment of such programs as memory and disk-drive utilities. Once everything is in place, you can configure WW3.1, including PostScript printer options. In either AGA or standard Amiga configuration, the program provides an attractive but busy interface that’s a tad intimidating due to its many buttons. A series of configurable buttons appears on the left side of the screen, making menu selection just a mouse click away. Some of the functions and “rollover” menus appear entirely different under 053.1 than under 2.1, which is evidence of hooks that take advantage of AGA operating systems. You can tailor the interface to include as many or as few buttons as desired. By default, WW3.1 operates under its own custom screen, but you can configure it to run on the Workbench on both AGA and standard Amigas. Wordworth proved ?

Long-time Amiga users will quickly notice that WW3. 1 *s file requesters are of the ASL variety, with similar speed and functionality, but display some slight differences in appearance. Many keyboard equivalents complement the menu system, using the universally accepted Ami- ga-x, Amiga-c, and Amiga-v sequences lor, respectively, Can, Copy, and Paste functions. The Save As function uses the Amiga-a sequence. Wordworth offers a unique Amiga- Guide-based help system. Calling up the Help menu at the top of the screen or clicking on the question-mark button at the left activates AmigaGuide. The primary menu option called “How Do I . . . ?" Displays an AmigaGuide document providing an exhaustive interactive list of details on how to perform everything from adjusting page margins to using document templates. 'Hie program’s graphics capabilities are iirst rate, arguably better than those found in some DTP programs. WW3.1 lets you import TIFF, GIF, IFF, and several other graphics formats. To place an image within your document, you simplv use the mouse to position it, and then press the mouse button. Eight included pieces of dip art install along with the the program, and you can also easily import your own. The Printed Word Well-designed touches include PostScript and non-PostScript printing options worthy of any word processor on any platform. Kerning and tracking adjustments let you give your text a professional layout. There's also a variety of
• drawing tools at your disposal for creating lines, boxes, ellipses, and freehand designs. L he Save As option allows for six different text formats, including WordPerfect and plain ascii text. I found the latter option somewhat disappointing, as it converts the soft returns created by WW3.I into hard returns. There is an option for either hard or soft returns when saving ascii files, but it creates two spaces wherever soft returns occur in the original document. Regardless of die option used to save ascii files, you should plan to spend time performing an extra step or three if vou use* WW3.1 as a text editor for your terminal program. Curious Conventions The included thesaurus, like the spelling checker, is fast and accurate, hut filled with British, rather than American, word usage. Adding new words, however, requires just a click of the mouse. While it does a commendable job of rapidlv listing synonyms using either the mouse or hotkeys the process seems incomplete in that it does not offer even brief definitions. Also, some colorful artifacts mysteriously appeared around buttons when running WW3.1 on the A4000 040 using Amiga DOS 3.1; however, they seemed to have no effect on the operation of the program. The A4000 did lock up on occasion, hut I attributed that to importing colorful graphics with Magic- Menu running in the background.

It is a remarkable product, most welcome in a market that sorely needs more applications of this caliber. Tim Walsh Personal Paint 6.1 DKB, $ 99 All AMIGAs. !.x 2.x 3.x compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Accelerator compatible. Mi n i m u m sys te m: AmigaDOS 1.2 or later, 1MB RAM. Recommended system: 1+MB chip RAM, hard drive, accelerator. AGA>compatible paint program. Personal Paint 6.1 (PP) is an update to the version 2.1 that I reviewed in the September 1993 issue of Amiga World. PP now provides AGA support, while retaining compatibility with earlier Amiga chip sets. It also supports multiple ANIM formats, additional image-processing filters, and alpha-channel capability. Virtual RAM, autoscrolling, Amiga Datatypes, and 24-bit graphics support are but some of the improvements. Easily Customized PP not only looks and (eels much like DeluxePaint, but shares many of its keyboard equivalents. Basic tools, brush operations, stenciling, palette, remapping, and spare-screen functions are similar to Dpaint’s. PP's menus are available in English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Dutch, and Swedish or you can create your own custom menus in any language. You can modify preassigned keyboard equivalents in the menu or add custom ones of your own. Much of the program’s environment, the virtual-memory usage, and even the Toolbar graphic are also custom i able. While the program now loads GIF, HAM, and HAMS files, as well as PCX and IFF-ILBM in up to 24-bit color, it displays only register-based images, so it converts graphics files to a register-based palette format. It now supports image datatypes and saves images in IFF-ILBM, GIF or PCX, an Encrypted format, and in C source-code format. And PP now supports the Picasso. Retina, Piccolo, Rainbow, EGS, and Talon graphics boards. Animation Possibilities Personal Paint’s animation tools are basic at best, with no Move or Tweening requesters, and no animbmsh function. Tt does, however, provide individual- frame playback speeds and multiple palettes. Setting the playback speed of one frame for sixty sixtieths of a second eliminates the need for 29 extra frames for a one-second still animation. A slider on the Go To Frame requester flips through the animation in real time, and it s fun to use. The Storyboard requester displays thumbnails of fifteen frames at once, with a slider gadget for scrolling through the thumbnails. Editing tools let you cut, insert. Add. And delete frames, and create color spreads between multiple palettes. PP supports Aniuifi, combined Anim5 Anim7, Aninw short- or long- word, and AnimS short- or long-word formats. While it can take advantage of all optimization options built into the ANIM standards when saving to disk, you can (urn off this feature to keep your animations compatible for playback with older programs that did not use optimum compression. Image Processing and Stereograms Personal Paint has many other features, such as palette merging, color statistics, color reduction and Flovd-Steinberg dithering. The new image-processing functions and variations bring the total to more than fifty. They include blur, sharpen, emboss, negative, watercolor. Edge- detect, lighten and darken, randomize, and even more. The Edit Filter requester lets you define your own filter matrices and modify existing ones, and you can apply image processing to brushes, the whole screen, or to such smaller, user-defined areas as rectangles, freehand shapes, or brush objects. The new Transparency filter provides partial rubthroughs and transparent brush application. Although you can use the new Alpha Channel transparency capability only when applying brush objects to the image, it provides custom transparency control of the brush area. New processing filters produce two types of color stereograms: SIRDS (Single Image Random Dot Stereograms) and SIPS (Single Image Pattern Stereograms). Stereogram combines grayscale 3-D patterns loaded into the swap screen with any colorful image you load into the main screen. It can also combine a brush tile pattern with the 3-D grayscale image to produce stereograms. It’s fast and easy to use, taking only a few seconds to combine the images to create a fascinating stereogram. PP’s palette requester produces color spreads based on liue or luminance, and it sorts the palette from light to dark or dark to light. You can flash any color on screen to show its location throughout your image. There are also contrast, brightness, saturation, and red green blue adjustments in the Adjust Palette requester. PP also supports Colorfonts, scalable fonts, and even scaled bitmapped fonts, and non-destructive text entry keeps text off the screen image until you turn off the text-entry function or reposition the cursor with the mouse. Personal Paint supports PostScript and Preferences printers, and it includes improved Preferences printer drivers for four-color printing in HP DeskJet or HP DeskJet 550C. There’s also an interesting brush Shear tool that behaves like a combination of shear and perspective, and you'll find a Curve tool that produces Bezier curves with movable end points and two control [joints for adjusting the curve’s shape. A Bit Lacking As with most programs, there are a few shortcomings. For instance. Personal Paint still lacks a Symmetry tool, and the fill patterns remain limited. Furthermore, there is no Arexx support, and the Floyd- Steinbcrg dithering calculations tend to he slow when remapping or reducing colors, even on an A4 000 040 with 18MB of RAM. It is also excruciatingly slow when Q loading and converting 24-bit or 1IAM8 images into the current screen format, hut I must admit that the eventual result is excellent. Personal Paint 6.1 is nonetheless a solid performer. Users of ParNet can now rest easy with Personal Paint 6.1, for the earlier problems have been solved. Its unique features and special abilities with 2-D animation should make this improved Personal Paint a fine addition to your graphics arsenal.

Issue of D.V. is ft ¦%-sT *f jfaj55: £A:‘a Kl 5: Game Preserve By Peter Olajson, AW Games Editor Tower Assault WITH TOWER ASSAULT, Team 17’s Alien Breed series oi action games at last begins to come into its own. These overhead-view maze shoot-’em-ups have always been fun, hut a rather basic brand of fun. They got bigger and prettier over the course of three games, but never moved beyond the Into the Eagle’s Nest Crackdown foundation on which they were built. Bottom line: They fell like a bunch of levels. Tower Assault doesn't. The 65 large areas both indoors and out have been knit into a careful, coherent whole, and the result seems almost like an adventure game. Well, OK. An action-adventurc game. You’re the only survivor of an attempt to retake an alien-infested human base on Arazin 2E, built around seven great, interconnected towers. And you’re still running around messy hallways the best- looking messy hallways yet greasing the Breed and collecting keys, ammo, first-aid kits and money. (Everybody who lives here may look like last night’s chicken dinner, but you still have to pay for your guns.) The main instrument for this new approach is the “smart- cards” strewn about the landscape electronic text messages that keep you posted on your position and what needs doing in a given region. They’re plentiful, concise and poignant, and nicely supplemented by entries on the familiar INTEX terminals. The story, which so often seems an afterthought (or a neveri bought) in arcaders, is always a step away. Another major plus is a new open-endedness. Ibis isn’t another ladder of sequential levels. 'Team 17 reports that there are more than 250 paths through the game, and I believe them. Any given area may have several exits, and that also lends itself more to a sense of place, (The game’s more rational in other respects as well. You can now fire while walking backward, and, indoors, summon a map of your surrounding at the press of a button.) Finally, there’s a level of spectacle and charity here normally associated only with IBM games. The CD32 version opens with an amazing 7-minute movie created with the Raptor which is better seen than described. And Alien Breed II is included on the CD as a freebie. On the other hand. I’m disappointed that the CD32 version doesn’t use more in-game speech it could use a human voice or a conventional save mechanism in lieu of the 16-letter passwords. And the enemy AI is almost nonexistent. There may be more types of aliens here, and more ways for them to appear, but they always to make a beeline for the player, like idiot linebackers after a ball carrier, with no consideration for either personal longevity or a larger alien agenda. They never open a Tower Assault: Team 17’s latest adventure in the Allen Breed series, KB Z.U w'

Consequently, since you’re basically fighting drones, no sense of bug-yoLirsell danger accompanies l ower Assault, and occasionally die bunch-ol-levels, shoot-’em-up feel comes Hooding back. Then again, each of the AB games to date has represented an incremental step forward. But a step to where? Perhaps the next game Alien Breed 3D- holds die answer. 3-D Free-Scrolling Update (Editors Note: This update to “Special Report: 3-D Free-Scrolling Action, ” Dec.

The first bona fide Wolfenstein-style Amiga games have arrived yes, with monsters, weapons and everything- in the form of a commercial olfering from England and a shareware game from France. And that’s not all: The authors of Doom-style demos have in many cases created advanced versions of earlier designs, and some new players have entered the scene. Death Mask (Alternative) It isn’t Doom by the longest shot. It's not even really Wolfen- ci stein 3-D. But, taken on its own terms, Death Mask is not a bad beginning. ? O o A Wow! Exquisite. A must for your games library. C Average. Nothing special, nothing awful. B Great fun. Plenty of entertainment value here. D Disappointing. Lots of room for improvement. F A real stinker.

For one thing, you also have to complete a mission blowing up reactors or disabling a mine, for instance. A split-screen, two-player mode (either competitive or cooperative) gives the game a hard edge. (Fhe game is really designed with a second player in mind.) The wall graphics change with every level (only to repeat later), and developer Apache Software has done a good job using shadow and light fixtures to give a sense ol texture lo ceilings. The sound effects are good especially the crisp “clack” ol newly collected ammo and the hollow spin of the slowing mini-gun and the enemies are well drawn. O O But those touches need a compelling game engine to bring them all together, and it's here that things go awry. The game lacks Wolfenslein’s basic freedom of action: You can move only in the four cardinal directions and in a style more closely allied to the incremental movement in Fleclronic Arts’ Space Hulk and Psygnosis’ forthcoming G2. The rotation just doesn’t feel like rotation; it doesn’t seem that there’s a 3-D place around you so much as a view of a place. (Doom may have used coding trickery to make a 2-D world appear 3-D, hut the trickery was well concealed.) An atilomapper is included, but it gives away the game (it shows everything) and is activated in the disk-based version only by waggling a joystick frantically up and down a technique that can gel you good and confused when you return lo the action and realize you're no longer facing in the same direction. (The CD32 version allows you to summon the map by bitting a butlon.) Blood flows freely in combat, but, oddly, explosion animations have been omitted. (Objects (lash when struck and vanish when destroyed.) Enemies often appear at higher elevations, but never react lo your presence and, when encountered later, prove to be on your level. And there appears to be a bug that sometimes prevents you from hitting enemies separated from you by an open door. Some of these shortcomings were probably concessions to keep the pi ay field level for Europe’s not-insignilicant I-meg A500 crowd, willi the happy result that Death Mask runs at a healthy dip on any Amiga. 1 lowever, an unhappy side elfect is that it feels more like an arcade game than its obsessive model. (G + ) Fears (Bomb) At its heart, this shareware taster from Bomb Software is much closer to Wolfenstein 3-D in feel than Death Mask. This AGA- only action game really scrolls, at a good speed and in any direction. It looks good, it has a solid automapper and plenty of secret doors. (Even secret doors behind secret doors!) The “feel" is on the mark. But it doesn’t exactly set the teeth on edge, fhe range of O “ wall tiles, enemies, and sound effects is quite limited, the design of the sample level is mundane, and not everything works quite as documented. Then again, it is a shareware game, and a demo at that, ( l eu bucks gets you the full package of 10 levels.) (C + ) Robinson’s Requiem (Silmarils) Properly speaking, this free-scrolling game ol sumval is much more RPG than action game. But this breed is increasingly rare O n these days an English version ofAmbermoon never appeared and it may well appeal to devotees of this genre who want more challenge than pointing their gun in the right direction. I lie challenge is formidable, and “requiem” proves to he just the word. Death hangs over the game like a cloak.

It's well worth the time and thought you'll have to put in. (Don’t worry you’ll eventually reach an epiphany at which it all begins to How together.) There's nothing quite like Robinson’s Requiem for sheer intensity and detail in maintaining one’s physical well-being. It’s also a genuine 3-D environment. You can climb on top of the surrounding hills and peer down on the leafy plain you just left. Alas, the game’s speed is wretched. Even on a 40-MHz A1200, I had to knock the view window and detail for the AGA version down to the lower settings to achieve something resembling smooth movement. (There’s also a standard Amiga version.) And you can’t talk to other characters. They just talk at yon. (B + ) Alien Breed 3D (Team 17) After quietly dropping the project in the shadow of Doom some months hack, England's most dedicated Amiga game publisher is again forging ahead with Alien Breed 31) lor Easter release using the game engine devised by Andrew Clitheroe (and featured in December’s .111). It will be for AGA machines only, and will support hard disk and accelerators. (The game should run 7-8 times faster on an A4000 well supplied with RAM.) Features will include multiangle walls, light sourcing, more than 18 objects on screen at a time and an optional full-screen display. Also, unlike Doom, Alien Breed 3D will offer a true three- dimensional environment in which more than one object can occupy the same vertical plain. In other words, it allows you to have bridges, and rooms on top ol other rooms. (Doom's creators won’t be implementing that feature themselves until Quake, slated for release in late ’95.) Brown said Team 17 has seen a number of engines that run Cl faster, but not with this level of texture mapping. "We could speed things up,” he wrote in a message posted to the Internet, “but we want detail!” (Note: AB3I) may not be the last of it. The rumor mill suggests at least two other major Amiga developers are contemplating Doom-style games.) Poom 0.3b (Jussi Salmi and Janne Juhola) In this beta, at least, the basic rules of Poom 0.2 still hold true. To paraphrase Shirley Jackson, walls continue to meet at right angles. Hoot s are firm and Hat, and whoever walks in Poom, O 1 walks alone. The good news is that the much-anticipated third incarnation of this great, forbidding demo is finally game-bound. A roughly drawn hand and pistol now adorns the foreground firing soundlessly via the shift kevs but there doesn’t seem to O J be anything to blow away in this version. However, you roam this new level (which contains a number of striking new wall graphics) in resolutions up to a full-screen 320x256 at decent speed on an 030-equipped A1200. The 3-D portion of this four-disker is significant, but amounts to an exercise in animating wall tiles. Some nice effects, too, blit the tiles themselves don't seem quite connected to one another. (It’s rather like looking at splayed playing cards.) And that’s with textured floor and ceiling. Now, how about a little sound? TextDemoG John Hendrikx) In which the author makes the transition from a Wolfenstein engine with Doom graphics to a real Doom engine. Raised platforms, textured floors, and a Doom-like bounce in the player’s steps are among the pleasant additions that appear in this unreleased beta. Nice floor and ceiling textures, but, like YD’s earlier full Moon demo, this segment a scant few seconds of a three-disk epic is over almost as soon as it begins. (And actually, the 3-1) part is the least interesting of the effects here.)*- Of course, the thing about betas is that they aren’t done. 1 ext Demo is slated to include multiple-height walls (which make things like staircases possible). And monsters? Also still to come, A skeleton hangs across a doorway in this version, but doesn’t do anything. However, I’m told the final version will have critters, and that you’ll be able to whack them with fireballs that illuminate the room as they fly bv, DENTAKU 26 (SlLLTUNA) Alex Amsel’s game engine has come a long way from the original Den lA Wolf demo. I his AGA game-in-progress is now called Dentaku 26. And it’s among the best pure Wolfenstein- type games Eve seen even in this early, unpopulated form. The version sent to me last fall was brimming with graphic detail, with see-through walls, textured ceilings and lloors, a vivid viewscreen, and even a few corpses on the floor for good measure. (The monsters that killed ’em were evidently all on break.) It all runs briskly on a ’030-based A1200. Too. A level editor is slated to be included when this surfaces in spring. .And Amsel reports that Amiga musician extraordinaire Allister Brimble has signed on to handle Dentaku's sound. Warp S (Oliver Groth) Groih’s [abberwocky Texture Mapper has likewise undergone a metamorphosis. Warp S, as it’s now called, lias moved indoors, in the process gaining speed and monsters (who trundle about on fixed routes and pay no attention to you). But it also appears to have lost some of its definition and its fine. Doom-like effects. And it may wind up as an IBM game instead. (Like the IBM needs another Doom-style game, right?) Amiga-Wolf3D 1.1 (STL Damage) It’s a shame this Finnish demo has seen only limited distribution, for it captures the Wolfenstein feel almost perfectly in its effortless flow and array of simple objects and hot colors. A few German soldiers running abouL, yelling "Achtung!” and “Luftwaffe,” and we’d be all set. (There’s not much collision detection, though.) Motion (Bomb) A worthy followup to Origin’s Complex. Motion migrates through the usual polygon rotations and overflights of Conianche-style voxel landscapes to a Doom-y tower climb all the while running speedily and in full-screen mode on an ’030-based A1200. The kicker is that, just before it ends, it turns the control over to you, allowing you to explore this stony landscape at will. Not to mention taking a fall off the lower an effect we haven’t seen to date. Really excellent stuff, (Unfortunately, it does have a glitch that turns up when you walk too close to a side wall.)

The low-res scroll through a lit-up town in the irrelevantly titled I Shot Kurt Cobain is rather pleasant even without much depth of field. However, the 3-D segment in the Quartex demo is utterly nondescript. Lots of people are pushing this technology now, but if they’re not going to do something new, why bother? Game Bits Rise of the Robots (Mirage) is just the name lor this beautiful beat-’em-up. All chrome, no gameplay (D). Bubble 8c Squeak (Audiogenic) is an utterly charming platfonner that at once reminds me of Mindscape’s unpretentious .Alfred Chicken and the Calvin 8c Hobbes comic strip. It has heart, this one (A-). Bubba ’N* Stix (Core Design) is a tough, inventive arcader in which you’ll have to sort out how to use Stix it’s a weapon and a tool to further the doofy-looking hero's progress (B). Naughty Ones (Interactivision) is cute Danish platform fun that manages to evoke the feel of Micro Prose’s Rick Dangerous games without looking like them (C+ B-). Ocean's Mr. Nutz is a style-to-spare Super Mario World clone a mix of angled-down adventure and side-view arcade featuring a feisty squirrel trying to free a Wolf 3-D (Terence Russell) An omission. This Wolfenstein-style demo has been around at least since last summer, but, due to space constraints, it was left out ol the December roundup. Itty-bitty in scope (some of these demos cover less territory than a suburban duplex) and less attractive than the competition it uses black-and-white wall tiles against a harvest-orange backdrop this moves OK. But, by now, it’s likely to seem quite dated. Chicken-dominated world (B + ). And the more recent Kid Chaos is a classic Sonic the Hedgehog-style platfonner that even goes on hard disk (A-). Banshee (Core Design) looks like Capcom’s 1942 with Chaos Engine graphics, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. This is the best vertical scrolling shoot-'em-up in ages. Possibly ever (A). Raiden would be a merely respectable translation of the delightfully combustible, vertically scrolling shooter had it been released for the A500. On the A1200, in the company of Banshee, it’s positively pathetic (D). Winter Olympics (US Gold) includes a decent speed-skating sequence and a pair of so-so 3-D bits (bobsledding and slalom). But the remainder is given over to the same joystick-toggling, third-person sub-games that were tired (and tiring us out) five years ago (C- D-F). ¦ USED AMIGA HARDWARE COPPERHEAD TECHNOLOGIES: The 1 dealer In quality pre-owned AMIGA hardwarel Looking for a fast & easy way to sell your Amiga computer or accessories?

BY TIM WALSH Upgrade Anxiety same results. Is it a defective chip, or is something wrong with my copy of WB 3.0? James A. Garrett Peoria, Arizona
A. Let’s hope the problem is not a had chip. With the exception of the A!20() s Kickstart ROM, all the motherboard chips are surface-mounted and soldered into place, and you cannot swap them easily. When a surface-mounted chip dies, it’s cheaper to replace the motherboard, providing you can locate a replacement. Check Amiga mailorder companies lor such a hoard. It may not, however, he a had chip. It could he a virus or a weakening power supply. Get a copy of a virus utility such as Virus Checker and run it. If it detects no virus, see if you can borrow a power supply to use with your machine. Leave it plugged in fora while and see if the problem continues. If it doesn’t, vouVe found the culprit.
Q. want to upgrade my Workbench 1.3- e( = nipped Amiga 2000HD, and Amiga- World is my only remaining connection with this ever-diminishing pursuit. I can't walk into an Amiga shop any more, as they no longer exist in mx area. Can you help? First, can I upgrade directly [ram Amiga- DOS 1.3 to 3.1? Will my old software work under the new OS? Not. Will it he able to read mx old files? And. Can you tell me where I might find a real Amiga guru ? Diana Probus Mr Cook, Nebraska
A. Software compatibility is a common concern in jumping from 1.3 to 3.1. It’s probably safe to assume you could install I he new OS software and swap die new kickstart ROM chip for die old, and, provided the installation goes well, all your current software should work line. However, insufficient chip RAM could cause problems with the new OS. First, you need to he sure that your A2000 has at least I MB of chip RAM. If you're not sure, open a Shell window, type AVAIL, and press RETURN. The amount of chip and fast RAM will appear. If your system has only 312k of chip RAM, you might he able to use AmigaDOS 3.1, hi it n n may run into problems running some graphics-intensive applications. Several of the larger Amiga distributors might n n n he able to upgrade your system with more chip RAM at a nominal cost. Finally, it’s tough for me to he objective, but I thinkAmigaWortd remains your best source of information. If anyone is aware of a better collection of gurus, please let us know! Dissolving Icons
0. I recently purchased a)} Amiga 1201). After the machine has been on for 15 minutes or so. The icons on the Workbench start to "tear." And after about 30 minutes, the entire screen tweaks up. I've tried different multisync monitors and screen modes, all with the Anniversary Surprises
0. My Amiga 4000 is equipped with 18MB of RAM, OpalVision and Implant cards, a CD-ROM drive, and three hard drives. One year after purchase, the motherboard died. Or at least that's what the technicians who fixed it told me. At the time, it had 6MB of RAM, OpalVision, and the original 120MB hard drive. One year later, the computer bus seized up again, and the motherboard is deemed responsible. Have you heard of any design flaws on the A4000? Che technicians from two different dealerships discounted the items that I've added as causing the problem. My machine's serial number is 000821. Abel Rodriguez (den Oaks, AT
A. I’ve checked with numerous sources, but no one seems to know of any problems with motherboard failure in early versions of the A4000. I also have the original, early-revision motherboard in mine, and (knock on wood) have swapped all manner of cards and devices in and out of it without any ill eff ects. Although it's unlikely, the Opal- Vision card might he the culprit. More likely, it is power related. Power surges, static in the carpeting, or unplugging and plugging in components while the machine is on are all possible causes. II you don’t have one already, get a surge protector. Amiga Newsgroups (J. Do you know of any Amiga newsgroups or World Wide I Veh sites on the Net. I would appreciate any info. Wes McCoy wesmacCq hooked, net
A. On the Usenet newsgroups, computers are broken down by type. If von go to comp sys and list the major newsgroups. You’ll see four Amiga newsgroups: a 11 .soi i i ces.am iga, comp.I)ina- ries.amiga, comp, sou ices, am iga. And comp.sys.amiga. The first three are conference areas, while comp sys am iga is a true newsgroup. You'll see that it’s broken down into 17 conferences, ranging from advocacy to reviews. The one that seems to get the most traffic is comp.sys.amiga.misc, which is a general discussion area. .Another interesting conference is comp.sys.am iga. Marketplace, which lists Amiga hardware and software for sale a lifesaver if you’re seeking a particularly tough-to-finc! Component. There are roughly a dozen popular Amiga FIT sites, and a WWW' site is reportedly under construction. Don’t overlook the Internet’s Aminet site as a source of Hies.

Jay Miner designed a computer dial was truly a user-friendly machine. Now, the Amiga has made possible advances in animation and special effects that have expanded the boundaries creativity into realms never before imagined. From the bouncing ball to Deep Quest, from the juggler to the Lion King, the Amiga’s combination of simplicity, cost-effective hardware, multitasking, and graphics firepower has made it the most widely used computer in media today, fay Miner would be as proud of his offspring as are we Amiga users. Daniel Rush Camp Pendleton, California Honestly, Now, Mac and IBM ... As a longtime Amigan, I find myself constantly defending my computer to Mac and PC users who denounce Amigas without really knowing much about them. My explanations of what I’ve learned from Amiga experts featured in Amiga 11 arid totally fails to impress them. So I would very much like to know what Mac and IBM authorities would have to sav about the Amiga. O Could you invite an expert from each of the other two camps to thoroughly and honestly evaluate our computer and operating system? Hopefully, that would give us all a little more ammunition to use against those people who think the sun rises and sets on Windows and System 7. Eric T. Anklin Tecumseh.

Patrick Ketlum Beatty, Nevada Hanging In There In my increasing frustration with the 4 O Commodore debacle, I decided it was rime to do something. That something, of course, is to stop sharing mv cowork- I expect that this dithering has shot the Bahamians in the foot and that it will cause bankers to pressure companies to avoid this quagmire by not registering there. Er's copy of Amiga Wortd and to express my support, in dollars, for your line publication. I grieve along with you and ask vou to hang in there with all of us. J o I am a professional video producer, and I have learned most of what 1 know about the Amiga from your pages. You have been an excellent teacher. In these times of trouble, you have also been very informative with your hotline. Please accept my subscription as another devoted Amigan putting his money where his heart is! Paul Lara Temple, 'Texas It's remarkable that AmigaWorhl is hanging in there, still publishing nine months alter Commodore folded, weathering the reduced advertising, and si ill giving readers good value. The Final Deal must be just around the corner, and alter the dust settles, il would be interesting to read some anec- dotes about the whole scenario of living in “Bahamian time.” I expect that this dithering has shot the Bahamians in the foot and that it will cause bankers to pressure companies to avoid this quagmire by not registering there, even though there may be legal advantages. Keep up the good work ... 1 plan to renew my subscription. Boh Evans St. Thomas. Ontario Heartfelt Wishes In response to your March editorial requesting suggestions as to the Amiga’s future direction, my most urgent hope is that the new owners continue to support the A500 and 3.1! Granted that we live in a world of bigger, better, and faster, but getting caught up in this mentality means constantly plunking down more and more hard-earned dollars to upgrade to the best of the newest. I operate a home-based, custom grapliic-ans desktop-publishing business. We bought our first A300 in 1988 and our second in 1992. With the addition ol only a hard drive, these machines have met all the needs of our home and my business. Unlike mv husband’s IBM-PC ar work, our Amigas 7 O have never needed a service call. The A300 is an extremely reliable workhorse that pumps out my brochures, advertisements, graphic designs, bookkeeping, correspondence, and more. Granted, it’s not as fast as the A4000, but it does everything I need -and its low maintenance costs and affordable quality software allow me to keep my prices reasonable. I love my Amiga! Please continue to produce Amigas, support them, and improve them. It would be a giant step backwards to let this wonderful machine die.
