Welcome to another 
issue of Britain's best 
and only complete 
Amigo magazine. This 
is our biggest monfh 
for some time, and crs 
it's oujt Christmas spe- 
cial we've packed in 
as many reviews, 


views, and opinions as passible. 

Probably the biggest feature you'll all be 
looking at is our Protext v4 .3 free disk. Unlike 
some other magazines, we've held back from 
charging an extra £1 ort a regular basis for 
software which might be at limited broad 
appeal, and stuck ms read to offering rbe best 
possible deals. Superbase Persona/ was one 
such example - probably the most useable and 
friendly Amiga database • and vProtext 4.3 fs 


WHO'S WHO 


another. This powerful wordprocessor, though 
ageing, can still outperform mosf other Amiga 
packages in terms of raw wordprocessing 
power, a fact whrch our tutorials this month 
ond next will attempt to show, 

For those who wish to upgrade to the latest 
version of the software or purchase a manual 
to enable advanced application, we have a 
hard-lo-beat offer, so you can 't go wrong. 

Add to (hrs the mast feature-packed maga- 
zine around, with more serious editorial pages 
than any of our competitors, a games section 
which buzzes with a life of its own,, and cover- 
age of all new developments (see our author- 
itative A! 200 review), and you need buy only 
one magazine - Amiga Computing.

COMPUTING 



by John Butters 


Industry enthuses 


over 


i HE AT 200 met a warm welcome from 
the industry at its London launch 
recently, with leading games houses 
pledging their immediate support for the 
£ '199.39 computer. 

Most of its key specifications had 
already been revealed in last month's 
Amtga Computing, but Commodore mam 
-.ied to shock almost everyone with their 
Jra-aggressive pricing. 

We can now confirm that the 68020- 
cased machine will be supplied with 2Mb 
of memory a nd Workbench 3, but ft does 
not have a high density floppy drive or 
SCSI II interface., 

Around 60 per cent of the 3,000 titles 
■available for the Amiga are claimed to be 
compatible, and recent releases are much 
more likely to load successfully. 

At the computer's launch several firms 
unveiled software they had been develop- 
ing behind closed doors lor several 
months, and many promised A1200 
games before Christmas, 

Among the companies working on 



A1 


software are Electronic Arts who will 
release Deluxe Paint IV AA, and top games 
houses Gremlin, Microprose, Ocean, 
System 3 and Psy gnosis. 

Many of the first releases will be 


improvements an current Amiga or PC 
games, but most firms said they expected 
to release A1 200-specific products 
around next spring. 

Mo software is bundled with the com- 



AfHJ^a fiOO - wekQffttti with flpffrr nmi 


A600 - the C64 of the 90s 


FOLLOWING the launch of the AI2O0 
with its state of ihe art graphics. 
Commodore promise that the A600 has 
a safe future as "the C64 of the 90s - an 
entry-level home computer". 

The firm have ruled out Immediate 
pnee cuts, but because of limited A1 200 
availability has featured the A6QG at the 
■.entre of a £3,5 million advertising cam* 
paign running until Christmas. 

Targeting children and their parents, 
adverts will appear in several consumer 
magazines, national newspapers and 
television. Most feature the line "Have 
you got what it takes?" 

Said Commodore's national market- 
ing manager Dawn Levack: "Our 
research shows that youngsters see the 


Amiga as an aspirational machine with 
superb software, 

"But it also shows that it's mostly par- 
ents, of course, who do the buying, and 
they want a little mane for their money. 
The Amiga satisfies both." 

The software industry also says it will 
continue supporting the 16-bit Amigas, 
with many firms now planning to release 
two versions of their games.

Sumner denies 
console claim 

AN INDUSTRY insider's claims that 
Commodore are secretly working on 
an Amiga-based games Console have 
been vehemently denied by the firm's 
UK boss, Kelly Sumner. 

The source told Ajr?. : ger Computing 
that the £200 console would be based 
on a 68020 processor running at 
16MHz and feature the new AA 
chipset. 

A plug-in option would enable a 
motherboard to he added, effectively 
building the console into a full Amiga, 
with a keyboard, serial and printer 
ports for less than £50O. 

"We've said for a long time that we 
can sell as many Amiga s as we can gel r 



puter and although the AT 200 has an IDE 
interface, the manufacturer has decided 
against selling a hard drive version until at 
least next spring. 

And in an exclusive interview with 
Amiga Computing, Commodore boss Kelly 
Sumner said that a pnee rise for the 
A1 200 was a "real possibility". 

"Most international companies - 
including Commodore - deal in dollars," 
he said. "At the moment manufacturers 
are being hit by a weak pound, and the 
situation is likely to get worse." 

But he concluded; "The Amiga brand 
has been of the forefront of computer 
games technology since it was launched 
in 1987. The Amiga 1200 will keep it 
there." 



JlNUFIPf Amiga rnniuJV- o "dmun 
maMne* 

so why bastardise our price point 
to go into that market?" asked 
Sumner. 

He said that PCMCA costs 
would need to come down before 
such a machine could become 
feasible and said the Amiga con- 
sole was a '"dream machine". 

It was also claimed that future 
versions of the operating system 
will support Motorola's Digital 
Signal Processor, PostScript, net- 
working and printer and file shar- 
ing.

price Isee the order form). This package has long been regarded as 
the most professional BASIC on The Amiga - and, at this price, it's 
the best value as well!

E3USA News 


A s winter nears and the tem- 
peratures drop below freez- 
ing, more and more American 
Arpiga users decide to sit by the warmth 
of a glowing monitor rather than brave 
the ice and snow outside* 

Some of this time is usually spen t play- 
ing the hot new games released for the 
Christmas season t but It appears that 
Santa may not be as co-operative 
this yean 

More and more American game soft- 
ware companies are going PC -only, cit- 
ing relatively low sales of Amiga software 
compared to MS-DOS games. 

Sierra, Dynamic Accolade, Spectrum 
Hobby te, Broderbund, and Activision all 
used to be big supporters of the Amiga - 
now they either don't do Amiga versions 
of their games, or they release them only 
for the healthier European market. 

Almost all of the US game companies 
which do support the Amiga are simply 
importing games from the UK nowadays, 
Amiga users are hoping that the A1200 
will revitalise the US games market, but 
with Commodore marketing the Amiga 
almost exclusively as a 41 multimedia work- 
station", that doesn't seem likely. 

So it looks like while you'll see plenty 
of neat hardware and productivity soft- 
ware from this side of the pond, the sup- 
ply of games is slowly drying up. 

Hooray for 
HollyWare 

One company which is still producing 
games in the US i$ Hollyware

medieval land of zom- 
bies and magic (some- 
one tell David Bowie 
and Peter Schilling - I 
think they've been look-

You have to guide 
Major Tom through the 
land known only as The Reaim in search 
qf a human king named Tanar, who may 
have the key to returning Tom home. 

If you ever played Microlllusions' cbssic 
faery Tale Adventure, you'll be right at

It uses the same

are once again walking 
around a giant land in 
search of spells. This 
game has more options, though, as you'll 
run across weapons, !eam spells, and con- 
verse with other characters as you make

Also the land Is magnitudes larger.

Paying off credit cards 

You've got 2Mb in your cute littl-e A60Q., and you thought 
that would be plenty, After all, you're just going to use it to 
play games and pop on l the occasional letter to Mam, fight? 

Well, since you've discovered the joy of multitasking you've 
probably found th3l 2Mb just isn't enough, especially on an 
A60QHD. 

NewMcdia, a California company, has come out with two 
PCMCIA RAM cards designed specifically Tor the Amiga, 
Available in 2Mb and 4Mb sines, these cards use a custom 
dynamic RAM scheme called PS RAM instead of more expen- 
sive static RAM (SRAM), 

This allows them to fit more memory on the card (4Mb 
versus the 2Mb maximum of current SRAM technology} at a 
lower price, 

You can l use the PSftAM cards as storage devices like you 
can SRAM cards - they're usable as system RAM only - but 
not many people are going to use a i2S0 card to replace a St 
floppy anyway. 

I tested NewMedia's 4Mb card in both the A600 and 
A1 200. You simply plug the card in and turn on the machine - 
no messing around with PrepCard necessary, 

The card works well with both machines, but is a better 



bet for use on the A600. Unlike DRAM, PSRAM needs to be 
refreshed periodically, and when you combine the time nec- 
essary for this refresh and the overhead of only running on a 
16-bit but, adding memory in the PCMCIA slot can slow your 
A 1200 by over 30 percent. 

The A120O's tTaprfoor local-bus DMA slot is the best place 
to put memory expansions on that machine, since it s a full 
32- bit slot- 

On the A6QQ, though, the NewMedia card didn’t affect the 
speed at all. A 6Mb A6O0 certainly makes for a powerful little 
transportable machine, 

NewMedia's president told me that the company plan to 
release a whole line of PCMCIA expansion cards for the A6Q0 
and A120Q, including SCSI and serial port adaptors.

that the cities, objects, and dungeons m 
the land move each time you start the 
game, allowing infinite re -playability, 
However, after you send 35 or so 
hours solving this the first time, l doubt 
you'll want to dive in again, 

The game itself is entertaining, 
although 111 have to admit that I'd rathe- 
have spent more time solving puzzles 
and exploring than killing lire annoying 
spiders that kept following me across the 
countryside. 

not ground-breaking by an;* 
means, but there's enough here to 
keep the casual player occupied., It 
works fine on the A120G, although it's 3 
bit touchy on the joystick on fas" 
machines*

Be adaptable 

Have you ever wanted to use a Microsoh 
ff 0ove bar" mouse on your Amiga? Or 
are you looking for an analogue joystick 
to gain that extra degree of control in 
your flight simulations? 

DigiPrint has the solution. The DP Bus 
Mouse Interface and DP Analog Interface 
adapt IBM bus mice and joysticks respec- 
tively to work on the Amiga. 

These aren't your typical "built-in -a- 
garage" adaptors with screw- together 
connectors, either. These high-qualit 
devices have factory-manufactured 
moulded ends that won't come apart it 
you jerk the cable accidentally, 

The DP Bus Mouse Interface is elegan* 
in its simplicity - just plug in an IBM Bus 
Mouse ar trackball and then plug the 
interface into your Amiga. 

If you want to use a top-quality PC 
mouse, or save some money and buy a 
bargain-basement replacement mouse 
this interface is for you. 

The DP Analog Interface is a musi- 
have for flight simulator aficionados. 
Unlike simple analogue adaptors, which 
just rearrange the wires and add a capac- 
itor to increase the joystick's range, the 
DP interface has a switch that adjusts the 
joystick's precision* 

In the past, an interface that worked 
well with F-19 might not have offered 
much control with Birds of Prey, for 
instance. Flipping the thfee-posi;ion 
switch allows the DP interface to 
work well with all Amiga Night 
simulators. 

These interfaces retail for only JtS 
each, and DigiPrint says they should be 
available through UK computer shops 
thanks to the their agreements with 
major distributor. 

DigiPrint can be reached at PO Box 
13016, Richmond, VA 23225; (804) 
560-1 769.

visible, press Esc to remove it. At the top 
oi the screen you will see the two Status 
lines and beneath them, the ruler line. The 
status lines contain details- of the docu- 
ment being edited and also of the settings 
For various Pretext features. 

The ruler lire always displays the ruler 
which is currently in use in the document. 
You should see a flashing cursor on the 
left of the line beneath the ruler line. This 
is the editing cursor and always indicates 
where the next character will be entered, 
or where the nest action will take place. 

Depress and hold dawn the right 
mouse button and the Menu Bar will 
appear at the top of the screen in ptacE of 
the top status line. Move the mouse 


painter up to the menu bar and you will 
find that a menu drops down as soon as 
the pointer highlights one of the menu 
options. Move the pointer to right and left 
and you will find that different menu 
boxes appear For each of the available 
options. 

Now you have seen what the menus 
look like we can get down to creating a. 
document, Unlike some programs, Protext 
does not require you to name a document 
before you can start entering text, so you 
can start immediately. 

|ust type in some text and you will see 
It start to appear in the editing part ol the 
screen at the cursor position. When you 
wish to start a new paragraph you should 
press the Return key twice. The First press 
tells Protext that it is the end of the para* 
graph and the second one puti a blank 
line between paragraphs. 

You can move around the text by using 
the cursor keys to go up, down, left or 
right a character at a time, or by holding 
down the Shift key and using the left and 
right cursor keys you can move through 
the text a word at a time. 

The Del key can be used to delete any 
character which is under the cursor m 
addition to using the Backspace key to 
delete the character to the left of the cur- 
sor, as already described, 

In addition to deleting single cFiatac- 
ters, parts or a word, or complete words 
may also be deleted by holding down 
Shift and pressing Del to delete from the 


current cursor position to the end of r*l 
word on which the cursor is placed. M 
Shift and Backspace to delete From in* 
character before the cursor to the start fl 
the word. Experiment with these to sed 
the effects . 

You are now going to add a new 
Lence at the start of the current paragraph 
so move the mouse pointer over the ™ 
character at the start, of the paragraph a ■ 
click the left mouse button to move ‘M 
cursor to the start of the paragraph, 

Menu options J 

Alternatively, you could have used 
of the menu options. To 5 Ee this in acta 
we shall use another of Protest's features 2 
rcstorE the cursor to its previous posit -<t 
Click on the right mouse button and se*ecl 
the Move menu. Move the painter do*4 
to the Last position option and selec: 4 
The cursor will be restored to its forr-i 
position. This is a very useful option whaf 
you find you have accidentally mo.-i 
somewhere you didn't intend to! 

Now you can select the Move merl 
again,, but this time dick on the prevroM 
paragraph option and the cursor will h 
once again be positioned at the start 4 
the paragraph. 

This is one of many examples you 
find where Protext provides more (hn 
one way to perform a task. You could ** 
have made use of Frotext's spv:-i 
keystrokes, but we shan't concern mM 
selves with these in this tutorial If y€ 


S ince the first Amiga word proces- 
sors appeared, one name has risen, 
head and shoulders above the 
crowd as a standard for power, speed, and 
professional flexibility. 

Protext has been an icon in Amiga pro- 
ductivity circles for years, the target at 
which every other software house has 
aimed, and though some have surpassed it 
in terms of Wysiwyg displays and user 
interfaces, tew can match Protext for raw 
power and sheer number of advanced 
word processing features. 

Now every Amiga Computing reader can 
enjoy the benefits of this superb program, 
thanks to our best giveaway ever and 
Arnor's not-to-be-missed Protext 5.5 
upgrade offer. The disk an the Front cover 
gf this magazine contains a fully function- 
ing Pro Lex I 4,3 complete with spell 
checker and a selection of popular printer 
dhvers, so boot up naw. 

Absolute beginners should work their 
way through the Following user's guide, 
but experienced wardsmiths will probably 
want to just dive straight in. 

Editing screen 

Once Protext has loaded you are pre- 
sented with the normal editing screen, 
containing no text. Van may find a hori- 
zontal line containing the Protext copy- 
right message and version number about 
two-thirds of the way dawn the screen. 
This shows that you are in Protext s 
command mode which need not be used 
when mEnus are being used. Il this line is

V^w move the cursor back down to

MPd press Return a number of limes until

We shall now go to the starL of the doc- 
and insert a new paragraph. As the 
: ift: of the document has scrolled off the 
iftc of the screen we can no longer just 
|pM the cursor to where we want. 

fnslead, we can either use a menu 
or scroll the screen with the

► - menu and the To Start of Text

the screen) and dfck the Iteft button. Each 
lime you click on this line the screen will 
scroll a screen page towards the start of 
the document, until the start is on the top 
line, You can then position the cursor at 
the start of the line by moving the pointer 
to the position and clicking. 

We now need to insert a Wank line at 
the top of the document into which to 
start typing the new paragraph. Select the 
Line menu and the Insert line option. A 
new line will be inserted above the line on 
which the cursor is positioned- Now type 
in same more text, When you have fin- 
ished, press Return twice to end the para- 
graph and insert the blank line between 
paragraphs, 

Delete it 

Having learned how to insert new lines, 
we shall now learn how to delete them, 
Position the cursor on the tap line of the 
document. It doesn't matter where on the 
line the cursor is placed as we shalf be 
deleting complete lines. Select the Line 
menu and the Delete line option. The line 
an which the cursor was placed will disap- 
pear and the lines beneath will move up 
to fill the gap. 

Protext also has an Undelete feature 
which is capable of restoring the last 
block of teal deleted. As far as Undelete is 
concerned, a block is any section of text 
over three characters long removed in 


one go. This includes lines as well as 
mariked blocks of text (described later in 
the manual). To see this is action, posi- 
tion the cursor at the start. 

A useful tip is that the same block may 
be undeleted more than once. This can 
be put to good use when you have a 
number of lines which are similar which 
you want to enter, fust enter the line 
once, delete it, then undelete it as many 
times as you want. You can then go back 
and make any minor changes required to 
the other lines. 

YVe shall now go to the end of the 
document, either by selecting the end of 
text option from the Move mentis or by 
scrolling Lhe text with the mouse. To 
scroll to the end, move the pointer down 
to the bottom line oF the screen and click 
the left butLon repeatedly until the end is 
visibFe, then position the cursor by point- 
ing and clicking. 

It would be a good idea to save the 
document at this point, as it is always 
good policy to regularly save your work. 

Select the Pile menu and the Save as ... 
option. Note lhaL the option is followed 
by three dots, as also are some other 
options in menus. This is an indication 
that the option leads to a dialogue box. 
When Lhe option is selected, the dialogue 
box will appear, containing the message 
"SAVE filename:". 

This b the first example of a dialogue 


CoverDisk 



box that we have encountered. Protext 
has a number of dialogue boxes for differ- 
ent purposes and we shall come across 
further examples later, but in this case It 
is a Text Box, These are used where you 
are required to type in text, rather than 
fusl select something and always contain 
text describing what is required. Key in 
F f R S T OM E as the name and press Lhe 
Return key to confirm the entry. That's it. 
Your document is safely saved to disk. 

As you will have noticed, the Move 
and Line menus provide a number of 
other options in addition to those we 
have already used. 

the Move menu allows you to move 
the cursor to the start gr end of a sen- 
tence, or line, to the previous or next 
paragraph, or page as well as the start 
and end of a document. 

The Lsne menu allows you to not only 
insert and deFeLe lines, but also to defete 
parts of a line or sentence, from the cur- 
rent cursor position. 

As these options function in the same 
way as those which you have already 
used, we suggest that you Experiment 
with them now^ to see the results., using 
the document you have already created. 

File selector 

The file selector is automatically dis- 
played whenever you select a menu 
option to load or merge a file and in 
other situations where a file is to be 
loaded, such as a different configuration 
file. The file selector may also be called 
from the File menu by selecting the 
Catalogue files option. 

Pretext's file selector allows you to 
carry out various disk "housekeeping" 
tasks, such as copying, renaming, delet- 
ing files and creating new directories in 
addition to loading files. Other house- 
keeping tasks not available in Lhe file 
selector, such as formatting disks, delet- 
ing directories and so gn, may be tamed 
out from Protext's command line. 

Select the Load File option from the 
Files menu and a IF the screen, apart from 
the status lines, will be replaced by a 
large file selector with a menu of options 
at the bottom. Depending on how many 
files there are in the current directory, 
one or more columns of filenames and 
directory names will be displayed.

Directories are listed First, followed by the 
files in alphabetical order. 

Directories are always indicated by a 
entry to the right of the name, whereas 
Ehe available option 5 are displayed in a. 
two line menu at the bottom of the win- 
dow and may be selected either by press- 
ing the key indicated in square brackets, 
or by double clicking inside the square 
brackets- 

Loading files 

To load a file, select the required file by 
pointing with the mouse and double click- 
ing on the entry, or highlight the entry 
with a single dick and then double click 
on the Return menu option, this same 
procedure is used when the Merge Hie 
option is selected, but when you click on 
the requited file, it will be merged into the 
document at the current cursor location. 

Select and load a document now, then 
move the cursor to a suitable place in the 
document and use the Merge File option 
to merge a selected file into the existing 
document. 

It the current drive/directory is not the 
one containing the hle[s) you want to load 
or work on, you will need to change to It 
To change drives, you must select the 
;D]rive change option, either by double 
clicking on the D, or by pressing the D key. 

A dialogue box will open with the 
prompt "Enter path: H , and you should 
type in the name of the directory you 
want. The file window will clear and be 
replaced by the contents of the new drive 
and the heading at the top of the window 
wifi change to show the new drive and 
directory. 

Move the mouse pointer to a directory 
entry and dick on it to highlight it. The 
directory may then be selected as the cur- 
rent directory by pressing Return or dou- 
ble clicking on the entry in the menu. The 
list of files will change to show the iiles 
available in the directory. 

If there are a large number of Fites it is 
often more convenient to see only a range 
of the files. This can be done by changing 
the file specification. Double dick on the F 


inside the square brackets to select the 
[FJile specification option and edit the 
existing entry, using wildcards and charac- 
ters, to something which will match only 
some of the fries. 

The list of files will change, showing 
only those files which match the file speci- 
fication. To show all files again, double 
dick on the [A] Show ALLoption. 

Several options are provided to enable 
you to rename, copy or delete files. Select 
[G]opy file(s) and a dialogue bo* will 
request "COPY from (filename); 1 , this is a 
request for the name of the file, or files, 
you wish to copy. The filets) do noL need 
to be in the current directory, which is 
why it does not automatically use a high- 
lighted filename. 

Wildcards 

Copy will also allow you to copy a 
number of Files at the same time by speci- 
fying wildcards. Once you have entered 
the name of the filets) you want to copy 
and confirmed the entry, a second dia- 
logue box wJl request 'COPY to (file or 
path): 11 . If you have specified a single file 
name you may specify a different filename 
for the destination, but if you have sped- 
fled wildcards, you must specify a destina- 
tion directory. 

The final menu option in the file selec- 
tor is the [N]ew dir. option and allows you 
to create a new directory as a sub-direc- 
tory of the currently selected directory. 
Select this option now and a dialogue box 
will open, requesting MKDIR directory 
name:. Key In the name you require and 
press Return. 


Next month, we r ll he continuing our 
guide to Pretext 4.3. If you can't 
wait until then, full Protext manuals 
can be purchased from Arnor at a 
very reasonable price. See our 
Proiext upgrade offer for details on 
how to lake advantage of this

ShowSTD 



Andrew Harrison 


Once started this program presents you 
a map of Britain and a box to type in 


STD codes, All you have to do is type in 
the code and program not only tells you 
which area it belongs to but it will display 
it on the map as well,, 

ShowSTD is quite useful if you've been 
given a phone number from someone 
with an STD code you are unfamiliar with.

Grammar 

Author: R Sarna 

Grammar is a program used to check 
your grammar in text files you have 
made in a wordpnocessor, It can be used 
to check things like repeated words, split 
infinitives, the use of certain words and 
much more. To use grammar you have 
to enter CLI and type "grammar < FILE- 
NAME:* " where Filename is the full paLh 
and the actual name of the file. 

As Grammar is a CLI command, just 
copy it into the C: directory of your 
working disk for it to be readuly available. 

Batman 

This is a rather good version of the old 
batman tune from the original series. The 
tune Es completely self running so just 
click on the Tune-of-the-fvtanth icon and 
then the Batman kon to hear it. All that 
is left then is to put on your cape and 
run round the house shouting ROW! 
ZAP! and things like that.

Remember this 


EPSON won an Amiga press Gold 
Award for its GT6000 colour scanner - 
it became the first sub £1000 M' 
flatbed scanner for the Amiga ano 
offered scan rates Of upto 300dpi in 
both 24 bit colour and 256 grey 
scale monochrome. Now EPSON 
have done it again. They have 
launched the GT650C and 
prices start at £799. 


then SCAN THIS !!! 


With glorious 24bit, 
16.7million colour tech- 
nology, the new Epson GT- 
6500 and GT-8000 flatbed 
scanners produce high 
definition, professional 
colour images. 

Do you prefer him in 
colour or black & white? 

Yet they aiso handle line art 
and 256 greyscale images 
(for monoDTP, optical 
character recognition and 
computer aided design} with 
equal clarity and verve, 

"isn’t colour wonderful?.,.*.” 

Output resolutions of upto 
600dpi* are available on 
the GT6500 and 800dpi* 
on the GT8000. 

Transparencies as well ! 

With the optional trans- 
parency adaptor and 
automatic document

Hardware 


I he Commodore monster has always been a strange 
beasE but over the last yea t the/ve out done them- 
selves with more seemingly conflicting product 
launches in 1 2 short months than over the previous eight 
years. 

As release after release piled up the inevitable confusion 
and subsequent frustration began to build- One minute the 
A5QQ, then the Plus, then the A600, suddenly the 500 was 
no more - where will it all end, screamed countless shell- 
shocked punters* 

Well folks, after the chaos, the calm. Although the big C 
have pulled numerous fast ones courtesy of the A500, A50CI 
Plus and A60G fiascos, the A120Q should bring all that to an 
end. 

For those who Ve sunk hard-earned pennies into an MOO 
recently, the release of an amazing new machine probably 
won't be the best news yoii r ve ever had, especially consid- 
ering its price point hovers only a hundred pounds over 
that of the A6Q0, 

Tomorrow's machines 

Although irritating for some, it J s time to cast all confu- 
sion asr-de and usher in tomorrow's machines. 

In simple terms, the A 1200 is basically a cut -down 
A40QO Although the CPU is a 6BO20 as opposed to a 
63040, the basic structure ot custom chips remain rhe 
same. 

The aforementioned 6802Q isn't exactly state of the art 
in computing terms, but when combined with the awe- 
some AGA chipset the partnership is a real world beater. 

Because of the new CPU, and the full 32-bit architecture 
that comes with it r the new machine obtains speeds 
between three to five times faster than a standard Amiga. 

Carnes especially will undergo a revolution in the com- 
ing months thanks to the extra speed and incredible graph- 
ics potential of the AGA. 

The AGA is one of those computing acronyms bom to 
create confusion, especially when ir's already undergone 
two title changes prior to general release. First Pandora, 
then AA, and now AGA, or Advanced Graphic Architecture.. 

The power of the AGA system comes Irom a combina- 
tion ot factors. Firstly there's the aforementioned 32-bit 
design as opposed to the 1 6-bit system within a standard 
machine. 

In addition 300,000 transistors have been crammed in to 
handle the staggering amounts of graphic data required for 
the improved repertoire of colours and power screen modes 
- Standard 256 display, Hamft 1,280 x 58D resolution, and 


L Games will 
w undergo a 
revolution in the 
coming months A 

so on. In addition to the new screen modes, there is a 
24-bil palette which becomes 25-bit with the addition of an 
extra bit for genlocking. 

From the 167 million colour palette, the available num- 
ber gf on-screen has exploded from the 4fi96 of Ham and 
just 16 greyscales to the unbelievable quality of HamS 
which with the assistance of 64 colour registers makes 
262,000 colours on-screen second nature and up to 
700/000 possible in the highest resolutions. 

As well as the huge jump in screen colours, the 64 base 
colour registers drastically reduce the dreaded fringing 
which haunted Ham of gid. For greyscales there's been a 
similar quality explosion with 256 levels of grey as opposed 
to just 1 6 on a standard machine. 

Even without the new Ham format, the increase in the 



i 


o 


machine's colour power is still awe-inspiring, with 2 St 
offer in all standard Amiga modes. This instantly bnng 
machine on a par with the best any PC or Mac can oh- ■ 

As well as colour, eight diffErent screen modes await 
built-in software flicks fixing as standard. No more net J 
a Commodore or third-party flicker fixers. |ust like the 
on Lhe A5D0 Plus and A60O, all that's required for 
modes such as productivity is a monitor with a suitable 
rate - either VGA or multisync and you can kiss 
goodbye for good, 

32-bit architecture 

in short, the Amiga's repertoire as a productivity 
more precisely a DTP/ precis ion platform is complex 
more importantly available from a machine retailim 
under £4O0. 

With the increase m resolution and colour, an ol 
worry is that of screen update. However, thanks to the 
bit architecture as opposed to 1 6 there's an Immediate 
bling ot data transfer. 

This Is added to by the super fast AGA which effi 
manages 64 -bit transfer. Thanks to RAM technology 
makes two fetches per cycle transfer rates are effi 
quadrupled. As standard the At 200 is shipped with 2Mtal

. ‘up RAM - yet another bonus those nice Commodore peo- 
ple should be commended for, 

However, 2Mb is only the beginning 55 third-party sup- 
pliers are already offenng compatible 16-bit RAM expan- 
sions and perhaps more 1 importantly IDE band disks fitted as 
standard, ranging from 40Mb up. 

Although third-party hard disks are availably your official 
Commodore guarantee is invalidated by the installation 
process, so I strongly advise any would-be buyer to ensure 
that (he retailer in question offers a personal guarantee for 
^ny subsequent repairs. 

This being the case, it's again wise to ensure your sup- 
pi er is reputable and can actually back-up the guarantees 
on offer, If the prospect of invalidation is a risk youVe not 
willing to take, Commodore have promised factory -fitted 
IDEs during the spring of *93 ranging from 2 QMb right up 
to 200 . 

In addition to a hard disk, RAM expansion is equally 
important. Here again the A1200 scores well with two 
upgrading options. The simplest method is to employ the 
PCMCIA expansion port which will accept up to 8 Mb of 1 6- 
bit RAM. The PCMCIA cards employed are identical to those 
used on the A6O0 which as mentioned above are already 


Entering the game zone 


With the transition from a standard 
16-bit 6 SOOQ to a full 32-bit 68020 
there J s obviously going to be certain 
amount of incompatibility between 
formats. However compatibility may 
not be quite as big a problem as 
you'd expect. 

Commodore are quoting Figures 
that suggest around 60 per cent of 
existing software will still work per- 
fectly with the new AG A, and this fig- 
ure can be improved even further by 
holding down both mouse buttons 
on boot-up which produces a mode 
election screen which allows the user 
to specify which chipset the machine 
will employ. 

Both the 0C5 or old chipset and 
the EC5 or enhanced chipset are 
stored alongside thi AGA. As a result, 
mode selection \$ an invaluable tool 
in the battle against incompaLibility- 


ln addition to mode selection, addr- 
tional RAM could also play a part in 
the struggle as often many programs 
require a certain amount of last RAM. 

As the A! 200 ships Exclusively with 
2Mb of chip RAM, investment rn a 
suitable PCMCIA may well be worth 
the additional cost in order to resur- 
rect a few old friends. 

Sacrifice 

Although a problem, it's the new 
machine's gaming strengths that will 
make the sacrifice o( any old soFtware 
well worth the heartache, 

For example, although the A12O0 
offers only a 6S02O at 14.2EMH2 - 
roughly twice that of a standard 
Amiga - the increase in graphic: han- 
dling courtesy of the AC A will mean 
graphic update five Limes that of a 
" normal machine. 


IT is is a performance which in 
real terms will easily match any 
386SX PC for speed and totally anni- 
hilate it lor smoolhness thanks to 
2Mb of chip memory as opposed to 
the maximum of just 640k of base 
memory found on even the fastest 

Aside from pure update speeds, 
the animated images themselves will 
undergo a revolution with a leap 
from an average of 16 colours to 
anything from 128 to 256, providing 
the kind of gaming environment the 
average PC owner has been all to 
keen to show stuttering along in the 
past. 

As, if that's not enough, hardware 
scrolling has been dramatically 
improved while an additional Lwd 
16-colour playfields allows 
Hedgehori-style parallax scrolling.

Improvements 


A welcome planned improvement is lhal of a high 
density floppy as found an the A40Q0 and the vast 
majority of PCs. 

Although a relatively minor inconvenience the lack 
of a high density floppy is a strange omission as 
Workbench 3,0 - the shared OS of both the A4000 
and A 1200 - supports the option by default. 

With I he increase in file sizes prompted by Hamtt, a 
high density would seem an obvious choice from the 
off. Still, as with almost all the upgrades mentioned, 
Commodore have assured that high densities will 
appear in She A1200 during the first quarter of 93. 

However, I’m sure with the option already available 
to the machine it won't be long before the Amiga's 
army of S bird party developers begin to offer high 
density floppies with their 1.76Mb storage as an 
added Incentive to prospective investors. 

And before you lament the demise of your existing 
software, it's worth mentioning that the high density 
within the A4G0G is equally at home with a standard 
Amiga disk as it is with a high density, reading both 
formats automatically, 


> 

widely available In their 2 and 4Mb forms. Although this is 
an instant and easily accessible method of expansion it J s not 
the ideal approach for certain applications. 

The main drawback of 16-bit expansion is one of speed. 
Obviously employing 16-bit access on a true 3-2-bit 
machine involves compromise. A faster alternative is to use 
true 32-bit RAM which provides direct memory access or 
DMA for the CPU. 

Again like its predecessors, the Al 2bQ has a trapdoor and 
it r s here where additional 4Mb of 3 2 ’bit HAM can be 
installed. Alas the aforementioned upgrade like the Ci-licial 
hard drive option won’t be available until early '93,, but its 
an option which may prove invaluable. 

In order to get the best from any 32 -bit CPU additional 
and directly accessible fast RAM is essential especially when 
using power applications that require fast transfer of large 
amounts of data, such as DTV r D I P and so on. 

Another addition is an optional FPU or Moating point 
unit, The advantage offered by an FPU is again one of 
speed, but in the case of an FPU its primary concern is seri- 
ous number crunching. 

Once installed, an FPU takes care of the vast majority of 
the complex maths needed lor applications such as ray trac- 
ing thereby freeing more valuable CPU time. 

The option for either a Motorola 6S881 or 68832 like 
everything else won't be available until spring '93. 
Unfortunately there’s absolutely no option to upgrade at a 



later date. FPUs 


Basically I think the facts speak for themselves. Jmt H 
the Amiga was the successor to the 64, the new AG% 
machines are sure to supersede the ageing 16-bit tech- 
nology of their predecessors. 

As lor features, the A1 200 is nothing short of specta - 
ular in both its standard form and as a platform fotj 
expansion. 

For enthusiasts and game players alike the A12Q0 i 
ideal although a mid-range machine based around 
030 is certain for the middle of '93, bridging the q^: 
between the Al 200 and A4000. 

If you're looking for the next step up The evolutions 7 
ladder the A12Q0 is quite simply the only option un-~ # 
£ 2,000 worthy of consideration. 


are strictly 
factory fit- 
ted, and 
there's no 
way to 
upgrade later 
without upgrading 
to a faster CPU/FPU 
combination. 

The entire A 1 200 
chipset - with the exception 
□f the CPU - is surface- 
mounted, including the FPU,, so 
I'm; afraid there's no turning back, If 
you have ray tracing tendencies or a 
liking lor power applications, waiting for 
the arrival of the FPU option is worth very 
serious consideration. 

Another planned upgrading route concerns 
the CPU itself. Although a huge improvement on 
the original 68000, the AI200 boasts up-chipability 
built directly into the design. Here again the trapdoor 
adds yet another twist by allowing CPU and presumably 
FPU accelerator combinations to be fugged directly into 
the machine. 


Curious strip 

As a result, there's no reason why -030s, -G4Gs and 
beyond can’t be added simply as an old-style trapdoor 
RAM expansion. As you may see from the photography 
there's a rather curious metal strip on the rear of the 
machine, 

Could it be that this is a cartridge slot for the rumoured 
Amiga console? According to Commodore's very own 
Andrew Ball I'm afraid not. Apparently the aforesaid slot is 
designed with even further expansion in mind, 

Because the side of the machine is already taken up by 
the PCMCIA slot and the trapdoor potentially packed with 
a 32-bil RAM and accelerator combi nation, it’s here where 
DMA access take place. 

Apart from the usual profusion of gadgets, this small sil- 
ver orifice opens some very interesting possibilities. Far 
example, with direct 32 -bit DMA there's no reason why 
the DSP or digital Sound Processor promised for The 
A400Q won't be able to make a move towards the Al 200, 
especially as foster CPUs appear for the machine. 

On top af Lhat there's instant potential for standalone 
Zpiro boxes which could be independently powered and 
connected directly to the machine, offering the one thing 
that the Al 200 lacks, namely access to third-party Zarro III 
cards boasting 32-bit transfer 

Such cards are ideal for super fast SCSI-2 hard disks, the 
aforementioned DSP 16-bit sampling technology, graphics 


cards and so 
which in the past ha« 
been purely the domain 
larger members of the Amiga rai 
such as the A300Q and now A40Q0 
course, this is all hypothetical at the m< 
but the potential is there, ready to be taken advantage 
by third-party developers and perhaps even Commr 
themselves. 


s 

cours 


nhancemenfs to the Workbench 


As you'd expect,, all the new features of 
the AG A are supported by the new OS 
collectively titled Amiga OS 3.0. 
Although in many respects very similar 
to AmigdOOS 2.04 there are a number 
of new features an hand. 

Not surprisingly, all the enhance- 
ments offered by the AmigaDOS 2.1 
upgrade recently issued for OCS.'CSC 
machines await, 

These include language localisation, 
PostScript printer supports enhanced 
support for outlined fonts, an improved 
ASL file requester and the option for 
sampled alerts. 

Like its predecessor, v3-0 also includes 
a licensed version of CrossDOS which 


allows the machine to read, write and 
format 720k MS-DOS disks. 

This presumably will include an 
option for 1 ,44Mb PC disks - as is 
already the case on the A4&G0 - when 
the aforementioned high density flop- 
pies appear. 


Library 


Perhaps the most exciting addition is 
that of datatypes which work via the 
new dalatyped library. The end result Is 
that whenever a new datatype is written 
and added to your system, other 
datatype- compatible programs will be 
able to utilise Its potential. 

Far example, if a PCX datatype is ere* 


ated^ siny program which employs 
datatypes as an option, will instantly 
gain the ability to display PCX images. 

To illustrate the point, a program 
entitled Multiview comes with the 
machine which courtesy of datatypes 
already included with OS 3.0 has the 
ability to display standard IFFs in all res- 
olutions including HamB, view text files, 
hear sampled sounds and examine 
AmigaGuide hypertext files. 

Obviously with the improved screen 
modes and colour selection, Preferences 
has been improved to handle palettes 
of up to 156 colours via a new colour 
wheel. 

And In addition, an impressive new 


feature allows the user to specify If : 
pictures as backdrops far boll 
Workbench and windows. 

As well as Improving the environ 
ment, sprites have also had some lane 
overdue attention and no longer haw 
To suffer the indignity of lo-res. No 
longer the ugliest part of the 
Workbench environment, they're nov 
resplendent in the resolution of you 
choice and completely independent < 
the screen on which They appear. 

A small improvement perhaps but rn 
matter how trMal a 64 - pixel Super N-re 
pointer may be r it’s a lot more attractive 
than its chunky lo-res predecessors. A* j 
they say, the little things add up.

F or a year now, the big battalions in 
the Amiga's productivity sector 
have been sniping at each other in 
a fairly desultory fashion. 

The odd bombardment of fonts, a 
dawn raid in the form of PostScript sup- 
port, or sporadic gas attacks through 
magazine advertising pages have been the 
sum total of activity. 

The stakes, however, have just been 
raised and the comfortable phoney war is 
about to end. 

Months of propagandist outpourings in 
the Amiga press during which the WF 
arms race went into top gear saw compa- 
nies scrambling to support the new 
chipset with upgrades of existing pack- 
ages, and the stage is now set For a battle 
royal between the Wysiwyg warriors. 

for the winner, the spoils of war will be 
a large slice of the home productivity mar- 
ket, and for the loser, urn, a smaller slice. 

The opening shot was fired by 
Softwood inc r reversing the American 5 11 
normal trend of always arriving late for the 
war, but Digits and New Horizons weren't 
stow to shoot back. 

Final Copy I) is a product made for the 
instant appeal merchants. It is fast, colour- 
ful in the extreme, and very Mac-like in its 
user interface. 

ProWrite 3.3 and Wordworth 2, on the 
other hand, are more traditional 
word processors with excellent Wysiwyg 
displays and more powerful features, but 
neither matches final Copy 11 in the looks 
department. 

Whether one approach wilt succeed 
over the other is a matter for every 
reader's preferences, but the standard of 
Amiga word processing has taken a step 
Forward with all three packages. 

In some respects at least, the Amiga 
seems finally to be threatening compari- 
sons with industry benchmarks like Word 
5 on the Mac and Word for Windows 2 on 
the PC. 

Final Copy II 

Though we didn't see the original Final 
Copy in this country due to font copyright 
laws, v2 has been released at last after the 
Americans went bananas for its DTP 
qualities. 

If the hype is to be believed, FCI1 is 
"designed for people who need high qual- 
ity personal and business documents", 
and is thus the answer to both wordpro^ 
cessing and professional publishing 
problems. 

Tall claims though these may be to live 
up to, the program sets about the task

with verve and energy as soon as it ss 
booted, FCil has a dean, well-designed 
interface which immediately pleases the 
eye, and looks beautiful when used with 
the AGA-equipped A1 200 or A40EX). 

Of the three packages on test, FCli is 
the only one to properly display 
256-colour graphics, and what's more it 
does so with remarkable speed.

Same might point to the AG A chips and

manipulation is equally impressive on 
older machines. 

When placed in documents, text flow 
around graphics is handled welt, with con- 
toured left and right flow as well as the 
usual vertical options. 

FFow around both sides of an irregular 
object isn't catered For unless the object 
straddles a column bfeak r but this is iden- 
tical to the way the others work, so FCll is 
in good company. 

Picture settings enable the user to 
choose a border weight and colour, and it 
is possible to specify colour zero as trans- 
parent or opaque, handy lor flowing text 
around irregular bitmaps. 

In addition, the picture can be reposi- 
tioned either in the current document or

Graphic elements can also be layered

Other graphic tools include line,

has plenty of options For brightening up

Any square or ellipse can be filled 
a colour from the palette requester 
surrounded by a user-definable bor

Neither Wordworth 2 or ProWrite

One problem I encountered 
graphics was when margins became t 
around a picture. The program's m 
ten'ce on squeezing text around i 
obstacle, even if this meant cutting 
in two without hyphenating them, r 
in a mess which can be cleaned up 
by repositioning the graphic or by 
lengthy session of manual text editing. 

In general, FCll does a good job of 
formatting, but in this area at least it 
less than perfect. 

As a wordprocessor rather than a D 
package, FCll is not much better t 
adequate. There are many solid featu

Computers are all ahout data, and word processing is no excep- 
tion. How, then, do the three packages fare when importing or 
exporting data in a variety of formats? 

it is essential for the user that when an important document, 
perhaps passed on from the office PC P or sent through the post, is 
presented to his or her wordprocessor that the program doesn't 
turn up its nose or shrug its shoulders in ignorance. 

To this end, all three packages make a varying degree ot effort 
to support other file formats* 

All Lbree will load and save in Ascii text format, and all three 
can import any IFF format, including HAM8- and 24-bit. The simi- 
larities, however, end there. 

Final Copy IS is reasonably served by loader modules for 
Pro Write, WordPerfect, and Pen Pal, but its refusal to open clip art 
files is a blow to its flexibility. 

The uset need only copy new loaders to the FCLibs drawer cre- 
ated by the program's installation routine for Final Copy to recog- 
nise other file formats, but when and if SoftWood will release 
these modules is not known at the moment. 

Pro Write hits a home run with support lor Pro Draw dip art, 


but falls flat with its document importing restrictions. Only 
Pro Write and Ascii format are recognised with the addition of 
documents from New Horizons' Flow program, whose tiles are 
virtually identical to Pro Write's, 

The user with access to a PC or another wordprocessor is thus 
restricted in his or her File swapping activities. 

The program's separate file conversion utility will convert doc- 
uments from a number of formats, including Pen Pal, Final Copy, 
excellence. Kind words, and WordPerfect, but 1 would have been 
happier to see this sort of feature built in to the main program lo 
save a lot of faffing about. 

Word worth takes the impart/export challenge head on and 
stamps it into the ground like some mad bull intent on free trade 
lor all 

Graphic support covers IFF, PCX, BMP, EPS, and clip art, and 
document load/save options are available For no less than eight 
other WPs, including MS Word and WordPerfect (M5D05 only}, 
WordPerfect Amiga, ProWrite, and ProText, 

The Grits are obviously much more communicative than the 
Yanks in this respect. 


what will be an insatiable end-user 
appetite For more colourful, more power*

Unfortunately, tailing between two 
stools as it does, it hits targets which the 
word processing user might not aim at in 
the first place- 

ProWrite 3.3 

New Horizons and ProWrite have been in 
the Amiga wordprocessing business 
longer than almost anyone else, and the 
package has undergone a long evolution- 
ary process. 

It Is no surprise, then, that vl-3 has 
been released partly as one of ProWrite's 
regular upgrades, but mostly to take 
advantage of the AGA chip set. 

What is surprising is that New Horizons 
have failed to completely support 256 on- 
screen colours when ProWrite SJ is used 
with an AGA machine such as the A4Q0Q 
and At 200 on which our copy was tested. 

Instead, the imported graphic is 
dithered as a screen picture with a maxi-

> mum of eight colours. True, 25 6 -col our 
iFFs and the new HAMS format are recog- 
nised and imported,, but there is no visible 
evidence on-screen of the new colours. 

In terms of the speed at which images 
are imported, screen versions calculated, 
end then displayed,, ProWrite fails far 
behind Final Copy II. 

Ore HAMS image I tested with both 
packages was loaded and displayed by 
FCll in little more than five seconds, while 
Pro Write took over a minute to build a 
representation of the same IFF, 

When it takes this long on an A4QGQ 
using the fast AG A chips and a 68040, 
something has to be wrong with the basic 
approach taken by the package to graph- 
ics in general. 

Dithering using Eight colours is a useful 
way to save memory and represent the 
graphic more accurately to those using 
eight-colour dot matrix printers, but in 
the days of the AG A chips and colour 
PostScript output there should be an 
option to enable truer 256-colour 
displays. 

Attractive 

Paradoxically, this situation makes what 
is basically a less powerful wordprocessar, 
Final Copy li, look much more attractive 
to the Power users with A4000s and 
colour document requirements. 

When manipulating graphics,. Pro Write 
can keep up with the colourful upstart, 
though much slower when a picture is re- 
sized, and has the usual left and right ver- 
tical and contour text flow, 

Irregular text flow is handled in the 
same way as FCll in that small gaps 
around objects are used to squeeze text to 
the limits. 

The result, in common with the other 
two packages, h that words will some- 
times be split into their component let- 
lera,, one on each line. 

This is as far as Pro Write's graphical 
capabilities goes. There are no line draw- 
ing tools as found in FCll, though 
ProWrite will at least import structured 
drawings from other packages, something 
which FCll will not do. 

Text handling is another story. 
Pro Write is d fully-fledged word processor 
with to emphases firmly on the words, and 
this shows as soon as serious word 
crunching starts. 

The program has several powerful fea- 
tures not found in FCll and one or two 
which Wordworth 1 can't match. In par- 
ticular, I liked the Retain/ Apply option, 
which enables the user to choose the for- 
mat or style from a block of text, then 
apply it to another block. 

The usefulness of this feature when 
using large documents cannot be under 
estimated. Not as powerful as FCITs style 
lags, perhaps, but more flexible in use, 

There are also several text formatting 
commands, such as the column break and 
variable undo functions which, though 
less glamorous than full AGA support, 
become essential in the user's document 
■creation. 

Without such seemingly tiddly extras 
the ph of the writer can becoms tire-

processor that this kind of feature is avail- 
able. 

Text routing may be simple vertical 
flow from one to another or may be set to 
"snake" horizontally r useful for pages bro- 
ken up by ce rurally located pictures, and a 
bookmark may be placed at any point to 
Facilitate rapid movement from one part 
of a document to another. 

Unfortunately, only one bookmark per 
document may be placed, which limits 
this feature's usefulness. 

In reply to the master page system 
used by FCll, Pro Write li enables the 
user to set differenl headers and footers 
for odd and even pages, essential for mul- 
tiple page documents printed on double- 
sided pages. 

The master page system is more flexi- 
ble in that it makes possible the produc- 
tion of graphic folios such as the AC 
symbol used on most Amigo Computing 
pages, but odd /even headers and looters 
are better than nothing, When spell 
checking a finished document, ProWrite 


can mix it with the best ol them 
its 1 00,000 word dictionary and thi 
with 30O r fH)0cross-references. 

Cross-matching 

Checking is fast, efficient, and aca 
and the thesaurus has a more than 
quate system for cross-matching m 
adjectives and adverbs. 

A pleasant feature, given that this dj 
American product, is the dictiom 
acceptance of British spellings sur~ 
colour and labour. 

The only distinguishing feature ot 
spell checker is its capacity to chec^ 
spelling ol words as they're typed. 

While a pain in the neck at timei

world lo consider its lack of a dynamic data exchange (DOE) sys- 
tem similar to that used in Windows 3.1, 

Dynamic Data Exchange is the process where a program ere- 
ates a hoi link for a graphic or a block of text, then monitors it for 
changes. 

In effect, a hoi linked graphic is placed only temporarily in a 
document Che package remembers where it came from, and if 
changes have been made since it was last used, the new version is 
used. 

All three title contenders make their own attempts Id meet 
DDE needs, though only ProWrite implements the SofLogik sys- 
tem. Final Copy If and Word worth 2 make use of Workbench 2. Ox 
links, enabling the user to save the link to a graphic rather than 
the graphic. 

Final Copy II uses hot links alone, which automatically update a 
picture as il is changed, while Wordworth offers a more flexible 
choice between coot links and hot links. 

A cool link simply creates the link, then waits until the docu- 
ment is loaded at a future date before showing the changes on- 
screen. ProWrite lakes a much more thorough approach by 


completely supporting the SoflLogik HotUnkj standard. For a I 
review of this package, see ACs passim, but suffice to say it wor 
with both bitmap graphics and text, enables ProWrite lo "pur 
iish" text for use in, say, a DTP program or "subscribe" to tei 
and graphics created elsewhere. 

All updates take place simultaneously if both the subscriber 
for example ProWrite - and the publisher (DPaint) am running, 
at loading time if a document contains Hot Linked text or graph 
which have been changed since the last session. 

Hot Links has a much more sophisticated approach to hot Ik 
ing than the Workbench alternative, but it has the disadvani 
of being useless in the ProWrite context unless the user at 
purchases the system itself Irons SoftLogik, 

The major advantage for Workbench hot (inks is that they <n 
simple links to any type of graphic the package can import. Thcs 
Wordworth 2 users will be able to hot link a ProDraw clip, a PC' 
BMP, or even a 24-bit file for editing in Art Department 
Professional (ADPro won't load EPS files - only save them), 

Final Copy II users, until the program improves in the Impon 
department, will at least be able to edit IFFs, including Hit 
2 S6 colour and HAM 8 varieties, if they have DPaint IV AGi 
or ADPro.

~ 1 ikes at the end of the document, 
Overall, ProWrite has continued its tra- 
3‘ :.n of being the Amiga's most consis- 
" J - tly "almost there" product. It is 
perfectly capable of most wordprocessing 
(Mo and has excellent PostScript support 
However, with its failure to properly 
i -i port AC A and its lack of some features 
i in Word worth 2, it will be a second 
Choice for most users this side of the 
Atlantic. 

As a counterbalance, ProWrite can offer 
i k>ng histone of stable performance on all 
Amiga models and a regular upgrade 
poky. 

il the consistent New Horizons support 
r- me past is anything to go by r this is not 

1 program which will be left behind by 
r developments. 

Word worth v2 

t net its release fast year. Word worth has 
enjoyed its fair share of success, due 
mostly to a combination of full Wysiwyg 
! preen display, excellent font and printer 
: port, and solid wordprocessoi features. 
The latest release builds on what was 
m already sound base by adding many 
new features without losing the original's 
concentration on power, 

Like ProWrite 3.3, Word worth 2 will 
import 256-colour and HAMS graphics, 
but will not display them on-screen in full 
colour. The program has support for a 

2 S 6-col our pale tie, but Digita da im to 
h*ve received their 
AGA machines too 
m for the WW2 
launch, 

Plans are afoot to 
please a free 
upgrade disk to users 
as soon as the new 
graphics formats can 
be fully implemented, at which time 
Wordwortfl should look as good as final 
Copy U does now, 

Graphics flexibility in WW2 is aided 
enormously by its import options, which 
n elude not only ail IFF formats, but 
• Draw dip art, Encapsulated PostScript 
EPS), and the PC bitmap formats PCX 
*">d BMP, Neither ProWrite nor Final Copy 
:an handle this variety of graphics. 

Once on-screen, graphics can be repo- 
sitioned and re-sized as normal, though 
■mere is no crop function as in FCII. Screen 
update, when moving or scaling a picture, 
si 'aster than ProWrite, slower than Final 
C<Wi but at all times acceptable on faster 
machines. 

in common with ProWrite, WW2 cam 
not offer FCII's line drawing bools, though 
ts and ProWrite J s acceptance of previously 
reared clip art will offset this to a degree. 

Textual ly, Word worth 2 is far and away 
r ^ best of the three packages on test 
Not only does the program support more 
font standards than FCII (which has sup- 
port only for its own type), WW2 is sup- 
plied With two disks containing !7 official 
a Comp uG rap hie typefaces, and will 
so use the Adobe Type 1 fonts built in to 
tt e standard PostScript laser printers. 


File conversion utilities are available in 
shareware to convert Adobe fonts to Agfa 
standard, and a goodly selection of Agfa- 
compatible fonts is available from: aur 
advertisers (see under DTP in the Locator), 
so Wordworth users should have no prob- 
lems when expanding their font libraries. 

ProWrite users will also benefit from the 
ready availability of new Compu Graphic 
fonts, but with only seven typefaces 
shipped as standard, ProWrite suffers 
typographically. 

Printer drivers 

Word worth's usual printer drivers are 
supplied with the package, which enable 
the user to choose from a long list of pop- 
ular pr in tecs, install the correct printer 
driver and printer fonts, then use the fonts 
directly from within a document. 

In total, WW2's support for printers is 
of a far higher standard than either 
ProWrite or FCII. 

My one gripe with font handling is that 
alLhough WW2 includes Ay la’s In te Hi font 
technology, screen representations of 
fonts, both Agfa and others, can be less 
than perfect. 

At sizes below 12 point, the type 
become & almost unreadable, especially 
when using the PostScript printer driver 
and its internal Fonts. 

These are displayed using (airly crude 
one-size bitmaps,, which distort badly 
when used at low or high type sizes. 

Quick Screen mode will show printeref- 
fects such as bold and so on, but use a 

standard Amiga 
font such as Topaz 
for screen fonts, 
and this can be 
used to increase 
speed or enable 
the typing of, say, 
9-point text. 
However, with a 
Wysiwyg word pro cess or, I would have 
expected better screen fonts. 

Having said this, ProWrite is no better 
in the screen font department, its own 
fonts appearing scrunched and eye- water- 
ing at lower point sizes. 


Final Copy II scores highly in print tests, 
and has one of the most comprehensive 
printing preferences requester of any 
Amiga wordprocessoi 

Graphic density and greyscale thresh- 
old can be set, RGB colour correction and 
halftone or ordered dithering is available, 
and page orientation (PostScript only) 
can be toggled between landscape and 
portrait. 

The only major omission is the option 
to print a page at less than 100 per cent 


Final Copy II scores well here with its 
screen magnification option, enabling 
users to zoom in up to 400 per cent, but 
this can be a slow process when IFFs are 
on screen. 

Having perused the program's Wysi- 
wyg features, the WW2 user will quickly 
find when he or she moves on to large 
document creation, that Wordworth has 
several superb professional wordpmeessor 
features which elevate it above its com- 
petitors on the power curve. 

Automatic indes and list creation will 


Size, vital when proofing a page whose 
final destination will be a PostScript print- 
ing bureau, but whose dimensions make 
it impossible to fit onto an A4 page. 

Word worth and ProWrite both offer 
these options, and have full PostScript 
support. Initial tests with the office 
LaserWriter II NTX and a very expensive 
Phaser III PXi colour laser printer suggest 
that Final Copy's output has a slight edge 
over the other packages, but there is 
little in it 


do for a start. Index generation makes it 
possible for users to highlight any word in 
a document and include it in an index to 
be appended to the finished article. 

What's more, the process enables sub- 
items to be indented below the main 
entry complete with their own page 
numbers. 

Index generation 

for example, one could index Amiga as 
the main entry, then trawl through a doc- 
ument indexing every occurrence of 
A1 200 or A40Q0 as sub -items. 

The resulting index will have an entry 
under A for Amiga with the sub-items 
showing all pages where the text A1200 
pr A4000 occurred. 

Added Flexibility is included in that 
users can choose to de-select certain 
occurrences of an index entry or choose 
whether or not all occurrences will be 
listed. 

Authors of large documents will find 
this feature invaluable and it is in itself a 
reason for Students to type their disserta- 
tions on Wordworth 2. 

Lists are more or less simpler indexes, 
and may be used to create a table of 
contents or list of illustrations. 

Strangely, though indexes cater For 
only two levels of sub-entry, lists can be 
created with up to seven levels of indenta- 
tion, allowing for chapters, sections, 
paragraphs, and so on. I wouldn't like to 
put this to the test, but 1 fancy WWZ's list > 
generator could be used to produce a

Bookmarks are also included and are 
mare flextole than in ProWrite. The author 
can create as many bookmark* as required 
to make nicking back and forward 
through a long document a* easy 
as possible. 

Endnote 

Markers for chapters or indented 
quotes, or other places of interest such as 
the location of an illustration to be 
imported before the finished document is 
printed make any VM2 user's life immea- 
surably easier. 

Probably my favourite new feature 
though, is the endnote option. 

By simply placing the cursof immedi- 
ately after the word or phrase in question 
and selecting insert... Endnote from the 
Document menu, the user can sit back 
and watch as the program appends a 
superscript number then lumps to the end 

nratTt'r 3,X1tlK^ l*7 -92 n«-i 


of the document to type the same 
number. 

All the user need now do is insert what- 
ever note is required. Notes are automati- 
cally re -numbered if another is inserted 
above existing notes, and if the note is 
later removed in the main document, its 
attendant endnote entry is removed from 
the list. In conjunction with the index, list, 
and bookmark options this feature makes 
Word worth the only choice for author* of 
professional business, or legal documents, 
and certainly the only package worth con- 
sidering for student uses such as disserta- 
tion*, theses, and longer essays. 

Home users looking for a good letter- 
writing package will find the extra features 
less useful, but given that Wordworth has 
excellent fonts, a spell checker and the- 
saurus as good as the next package, and 
will soon completely support 256 colours. 

On®-.’ DTP fans and those looking for 
very glitzy graphical documents will be 
tempted to buy another word processor.

I .s always been suspicious of so-tailed 
miraculous musical tuition courses since 
the days when, Les Paul copy in hand, I 
struggled and failed to master the arcane 
' playing Stairway To Heaven with the 
If p of a dodgy fingering diagram and a 
| fay akw*g*g*Max flexi-disc. 

' was with a certain amount of cynicism, 
thenelon, that \ approached Mid scape's 
li rade keyboard tutor. If the marketing 
tt*b was to be believed, I would be play- 
rg me piano in three weeks and reading 
tneei; music "within weeks". 

Apprenticeship 

Sow, if 5 a well known fact that "weeks" 
l^rai can mean anything up to ten years 
LS2G "weeks' 1 } and beyond r but the hinted 
K three week timE period for my keyboard 
ri-rfntkeship was a definite figure I could 
jft rny doubting teeth into. This in mind, I 
lounged a keyboard and sat back grin- 
iwg smugly, fully anticipating another real- 
“ ;.jo between marketing claim and; cold! 
truth. 

-ive minutes following the simple instaJ- 
tot Dfi procedure and a few hours at the 
Irenes was enough to turn cynicism into 
astonishment as my first rendition of 
Dvorak's Largo (the Hovis tune to you and- 
me), complete with left hand chord 
changes, floated serenely from the Miracle's 
tereo speakers. I sat back with a grin which 
had been magically transformed from 
~ ug cynicism to gloating pleasure. 

Miracle is a hardware and software dou- 
ble act combining a standard 4 9-key key- 




own musical idiot

board and software written by the Blue 
flabbon Soundworks people. At the heart off 
the system is a simple cable connecting the 
keyboard to the Amiga's serial port and 
three disks' worth of extremely clever 
software. 

When the user strikes a key on the 
Miracle's pressure-sensitive keyboard, a sig- 
nal is passed down the connecting cable to 
,J -t software, which displays the key press 

graphic form using an on-screen key- 
board. Data transfer is virutally instanta- 
neous, and as the user progresses from toe 
■ : r sections detailing proper keyboard 


posture and how to use Miracle to the 
lessons themselves, the software begins to 
show just how central this interaction is to 
its operation. 

Over 40 types of error are checked for, 
grouped into seven categories, and two 
phrase oanks are used to generate reports 
on the user's performance. This means that 
messages coming from the "tutor" to the 
pupil are varied and tailored to each indi- 
vidual performance with the result that the 
Miracle owner has, in effect, a captive 
piano tutor in a box. 

Hypertext is used for most reports and 


MIDI options 

Miracle is basically a MIDI keyboard, so it can of course be used in conjunction with any 
MIDI sequencing package and MIDI interface , However, as the Miracle software is written 
Blue Ribbon Soundworks, Bars and Pipes Professional is particularly useful. 

This top end Amiga sequencer has a Miracle keyboard driver as standard, and selecting 
Mirade during Bars and Pipes installation wilE enable the user to directly address the 
Mirede's patches by name rather than MIDI patch number. 

No MIDI connector is required when using Bars and Pipes, as the diwer software will

Professional without also paying the £20 or so for a MIDI interface, but the feature is a use- 
ful one nonetheless.. 


information screen, making it possible for 
the user to simply click on the word 
"Beethoven" for example to summon a 
screen of information. All musical: terms 
used bavE their own hypertext screens, so 
the software can be very educational in the 
more traditional music education sense. 

Fingering 

Lessons are grouped into chapters, each 
dealing with one complete tune, and start 
with a blackboard containing details of the 
phrase, chard, or notes about to be prac- 
ticed, When first introduced, all new notes 
are indicated an the keyboard using 
fingering numbers to encourage 
correct technique from the start, 
and a variety of tuition games are 
used to stave off boredom. 

These include Ducks, where the pupil 
attempts to shoot ducks moving across 
musical staves by pressing the corre- 
sponding key, Ripchord, where a 
correctly fingered chord 
results in the safe landing 
of parachutists (failure 
can be messy), and 
Aliens, where one 


attempts to follow a sequence of notes 
played by a Close Encounters-like flying 
saucer. Belter still, though, is hesitation 
mode. 

Where everyone begins, hesitation 
mode is used to display a piece of music in 
standard notation but without the 
metronome and with a box outlining the 
next note ta be played. 1 11 e user then plays 
at his or her pace until confident with the 
tune. Miracle will not move on tp perfor-

mance inode with the metronome until the 
pupil tan finger the melody more of less 
correctly,, so there's plenty of room for 
error. 

When errors begin to multiply, repre- 
senting a basic and repetitive failing. 
Miracle will skip backwards to simple one- 
handed practice or to rhythm-only mode, 
The really clever bit, though, is that the 
software can tell exactly what is going 
wrong. 

If the user continually messes up a 


chord change or can't gel a 
handle on quarter notes,, 

Miracle's musical brain will 
sort out what's going wrong 
and devise a lesson to rem- 
edy it. This can range from 
right handed melody prac- 
tice, to left-handed chard 
changes, or Even a trip back 
to the duck shooting range. The latter is 
particularly humiliating tor the budding 
keyboard jockey and prompts my only 
criticism of the software - it can be very

Future proof? 


Budding pianists will be able to progress with 
Miracle as far as about grade four in standard 
piano tuition terms, but at this point the 49-key 
limit will be reached. 

A full piano keyboard covers at least si* 
octaves, while the Miracle can handle only four. 
For the advanced stages of tuition, therefore, a 
larger keyboard will be required, and unless 
Mlndscape produce another version of the pack- 
age, users will have to part company with Miracle 
and hunt pul a decent full size Synth or piano. 

Before this stage is reached, however, a selec- 
tion of add-on song disks and advanced lesson 
disks will be available, the first of which should be 
released after Christmas containing popular mod- 
ern songs by Madonna and others. In addition, 


the miracle manual makes every attempt to point 
pupils In the right direction, 

Suggestions are included concerning the best 
places to go in search of a decent professional 
tutor, which artists to listen to for keyboard 
ideas, and even what sheet musk to opt for. The 
authors make no hones about Miracle's beginner 
status and recommend that ambitious users 
study musical theory and technique with a quali- 
fied tutor. 

Of course by the time the user moves on to 
such advanced tuition. Miracle will have per- 
formed Its task, and may have been developed 
further, Mindscape say they are looking at fur- 
ther developing the whole system, so keep an 
eye on our updates column for the latest news.

picky. Very picky, that is, when the pupil is 
consistently fingering the wrong note, or 
coming in early on an upbeat, but the 
built-in ,v near enough will do" approach 
compensates for this when a nearly cor- 
rect performance is acceptable enough to 
allow advancement to a new lesson. The 
authors have obviously given a great deal 
of thought to the problem of computers 
having a much more finicky ear for Liming 
than the average human, and the com* 
promise works admirably. 

Evaluation 

At no time during my own lessons did II 
have cause to complain about the soft- 
ware's evaluation of my progress. I did, of 
course, swear vociferously at the machine 
when it asked me yet again to go through 
the fourth measure (It could have been 
the fifth measure) of forgo and get that 
chord change just right, but the machine 
was correcL and ! eventually mastered it 
properly instead of in the 
cobbled up fashion I 
would have found accept- 
able. 

In less than three days 
□f fairly intensive practice 
(! couldn't be dragged 
away from it once I’d dis- 
covered how much fun it 
was), I progressed from 
being unable even to play 
Chopttkks to playing a 
tune with both hands 
involving three chords 
and a tricky thrice-in-one- 
measure chord sequence. 
As far as I was concerned, 
the last note fading away 
to the accompaniment of 
rhythmic banging from

Although there are 40 chapters in 
Miracle learning curve, each based 
one song, there are in fact hundred!: 
songs available on the disks supplied 
every keyboard. These range frci 
America (using the same tune as oji 
national anthem) to John Lenna-- i 
Yesterday and the Be a tie s J YtUi 
Submarine, and any one of them can ‘

tine user is presented with a file requev er 
and, once a song is chosen, with a ran 
of practice options. He or she can cht 
to practice right, left, or both hands! 
rhythm, the notes themselves (as in hesi- 
tation mode), play a solo with tf * 
metronome, o fa duet with another compi 
puler-controlled pianist. 

Once happy with the song, popping 
into the performance hall enables prac- 
tice with a full orchestral backing, which 
will be in a style to suit the piece. At th s 
point, the warm glow of satisfaction from 
having practised a song lo performance 
standard without the help of the tu&ftt 
is not to be underestimated.. 

my Irritated neighbours at one in 
morning, Miracle had lived up to its ni 
m no uncertain fashion, 

For the parent or teacher, never mi 
the thousands of us harbouring o 
dreams of musical success, Miracle is I 
of the most educational and enjoyal 
pieces of hardware yet released for if 
Amiga. Its simple design, superb soflw< 
and open ended potential for add- 1 
disks, MIDI sequencing and so on, wt 
make it a good buy at the price ev« 
before the cost of piano lessons was tal 
into account. 

Value 

When the £10+ per hour fees, mu! 
plied by one Lo two years and possii 
more than one child are calculate* 
Miracle shines as much on its value fi 
money merits as it does on its musical and 
technical abilities. This product is already 4 
success on the PC and Nintendo sysif 
and can hardly Fail to be a big hit on 
Amiga. 

Now then was that a G7 or a 
pended Cl And how many times do 
have to practice that triplet 
octave stretch?

An in-depth guide for Workstation 2 users 
to operating and customising TDM 


B efore we delve into TDM's con- 
figuration editor, a brief tour of 
the program's more subtle fea- 
tures h in order. Perhaps the first and 
most vital port of call is TDM's attendant 
p files which instantly leap to your aid if 
confusion or disaster strikes. 

If you hold down the right mouse but- 
'on and move to the TDM Utilities menu 
■ will be revealed - simply release the 


button on Help or alternatively hit H on 
the keyboard to execute the burl! in hot- 
key command, when the requester 
appears simply click on the subject of your 
choice. 

If you then exit the Help system and 
move to the central 1 device lilt another 
hidden feature will be revealed. At present 
the list will read ,r DF0:, Dfl:, 0F2:, FLAM:* 1 
and sg on, If you move the pointer to the 



top of the list and click 
just above the first device 
the selection will toggle to 
an additional five device 
names. 

At present all of the 
additional devices will 
read simply SYS;. Later in 
the article HI explain how 
to configure these extra 
source devices to suit your 
specific system. 

if you now move to 
the bottom of the screen 


famtfkir fare Qf TOM rlaor me? At rhtf Cl.f a IJUni? rhc pan 


we'll run through the 
options available on the 



ATdfetf TDM all 
pavr otiffl by 

addiiitf ±ifra 
aptiam in 
secattdi 


lower control strip, 5ome of the features 
are fairly sell explanatory, such as IconJfy 
and the arrow gadgets, while others are 
slightly more mysterious. 

To apply the File Info option simply 
select a file - denoted by an arrow along- 
side the filename - then hit the File Info 
button. 

This is particularly useful when applied 
to directories as they can be scanned to 
reveal their total size - extremely useful 
when copying large amounts of data from 
disk to another, 

Alongside the file info lurks the essential 
command button. Before you click on the 
button itself first run through numbers 1 
to 4 on the keyboard - this will reveal the 
built-in commands already configured to 
work with TDM. 

Within the T-DMConEd section I'll 


expiain how to add additional commands 
of your own, but for how simply list the 
Workstation 2 disk and highlight the file 
entitled AC. IFF, 

Now press 1 on the keyboard and click 
on the command button. TDM will now 
use an external IFF viewer and display the 
AC backdrop image. 

To the right of the command button 
you'll see the Zoom option. This is used to 
provide detailed information on the contents 
of specific drives or directories. From here 
you can examine the state of protection bsts, 
comments, creation dates and so on. 

Now exit the Zoom option and either 
select the TDM Con Ed from the TDM main 
screen or alternatively return to the 
Workstation 2 main screen, highlighting 
the general pull-down and ■r~T F J 
releasing on TDM Config. r ^ 


TDM Configuration Editor (TDMConEd) 


Device gadgets 

We r ll start the editing extravaganza with the ten Device 
gadgets on the upper left, in this areas you can add or 
modify the devices you wish to appear in the devices 
section of the central control panel. 

To add or change a name, simply click in the box 
and add the appropriate sting. When you return to the 
TDM main screen the new device will be ready and 



Commands gadgets 

In this area you can add or modify the commands that 
appear in the External gadget in the lower centre of the 
screen. These commands must be in the C: directory or 
: amatively have a path assigned. For example: 

p 

If 1 :||t1 Lt/UrdpLiytr 

Archivers gadgets 
(19 characters max) 

n this ares you can add the archivers you want to 
-mploy when you press die letter V within TDM. These 
. mmands must be in C: if no paths are defined. 

To discover the required syntax for your particular 
sr Oliver copy it into your C: directory, open a shell and 
'.pe its filename. At this point a list of commands 
' ' 1 ■ Id appear which can then be added to the Extract, 

. vt and Add gadgets. 


Auto Floppy Directories 

Selection of this mode (on or off) will cause TDM to automati- 
cally load a directory when a floppy is placed in one of the 
floppy drives. This will only take effect if either of Che display 
windows contain the appropriate drive as the directory listing. 

Hot Keys 

This function allows you to switch the hot key function on or 
off. When set to the off it doesn't mean the hot key operation 
is totally disabled, it simply means that a key combination of 
the light Amiga and the key Setter needs to be depressed 
simultaneous iy. 

Full Paths 

if you wish to have the FULL path displayed in the source win- 
dow for the directory you are currently using (ie: C: would be 
displayed as Bench ;C/ in my case), then select this option. If 
you select off, then the display will show what you type. 

Palette gadgets 

To edit one of the Screen Colours, simply dick on one of the 
boxes containing the colour you wish to edit. You can then 
use the sliders marked % G or B to adjust that colour as 
required. 

TDM External Files Path 

To give you more freedom in using TDM, you can tell it to 
toad the TDMConEd and TDMHeip programs from whenever 


you like. This feature has already been implemented for 
you, but feel free to move the files and reset the path if you 
wish. 

T'ie External files path offers an excellent opportunity to 
free some space on the disk. You could copy both fifes onto 
a separate disk and then use the path name to access them 
when required, for example: 

Dll : T E*H St u f f r 1 

This would simply instruct TDM to took for the TDMStuff 
draw on drive DFl while searching for help fitos and the 
tDMGonEd program. Movng bath files instantly Trees over 
60k of valuable disk space allowing you to add even more 
utilities, to the system., 

TDM External Read Font 

You can now define the font you wish to use for reading 
files within the fteadf He option of T DM. Simply type in the 
name o- the font you wish to use and press Feturri. 

You do not have to type .font at the end, as TDMConEd 
will automatically do this, however, if you do, TDMConEd 
will not add it. 

Minimum Memory 

This option has come about so as to give yog warning 
when your system is becom*ng low on memory. You may 
entEr any value between 50k (50,000 bytes) and 500k 
(500,000 bytes) as your warning level. This must be 
Entered in k rather than bytes.

Y es folks, Am/go 
Computing investigates 
the hottest craze since 
the space hopper. If you've 
switched on a TV or watched any 
selF respecting 5ci-fi during the 
last year or two you've almost 
certainly experienced morphing 
and warping in action. 

in the past magical FKs of this 
magnitude were strictly the 
domain of the Hollywood 
moguls^ but now thanks to 
ASDG, CVP and Black Belt, the 
ultimate in movie magic awaits us 
all. 

Before the three ring circus of 
Morph Plus, Cine Morph and 
ImageMaster step out to the roar 
of the grease paint and smell of 
the crowd a brief description of 
what a morph and a warp actu- 
ally are is well worth recount. 

The First thing to keep in mind 
the difference between a 


is 


morph and metamorphosis. We'll 
start with the latter. When the 
phrase metamorphosis is used in the com- 
puting sense it refers to a transition of one 
three dimensional form into another with 
both elements sharing an equal number of 
points. 

Mind blowing 

If you J re not into ray tracing or 30 mod- 
elling this has probably done little or noth- 
ing to clarify the situation, as the technique 
is almost exclusive to such applications. 

Although a truly mind-blowing effect in 
the right hands, metamorphosis tends to 
fall woefully short when it comes to believ- 
able real, word emulation. 

for example to create a convincing 
metamorphosis a seemingly real human 
head into another would be a difficult if not 
impossible task on even the most powerful 
ray tracing package. On the other hand 
sudi transformations are second nature to 
any self respecting morphing program. 

The essential difference between both

methods is the number of dimensions 
employed. Unlike ray tracing, morphing is 
strictly Two dimensional. In other 
words, morphing software has no 
concept of distance or perspec- 
tive, ifs only priority is the manip- 
ulation of a flat 2D image. 

Because of this its perfect for 
manipulating real world imagery 
that's been captured from video 
tape or alternatively scanned From 
existing artwork. 

The owl to baby examples are a 
perfect example of morphing in 



action, just two scanned images manipu-* 
lated to create and unlimited number of 
"Tweens" which gradually trans- 
farm the ultimate in mouse mur^ 
derere into mother's pride and joy. 

To initialise the effect the promi- 
nent features are linked by either 
vectors or alternative^ a mesh sys- 
tem, the outlines set, the transition 
and dissolve parameters applied,

The basic difference between the 
methods is that warping operates or a 
gle image producing a single or se 
transition of the specified features. 

For example, a simple eye bulge 
consist of encircling or defining the 
around the eyes, adjusting the fin 
positions of the target, then either r 
ing a single image to produce a strai 
ward before and after, or altemat 
entire series ideal for animation. 

This last reference to animation is 
clarifying a little before you road on 
animated or moving warps and rr 
mentioned below. When a series oi 
images arc morphed or warped over a 
of frames the resulting images can 
combine to produce animation. 

However, this is not an animated 
morph. The end result may indeed 
as an animation, but the process is

Although the title is new, the soft ware 
itself was the first to bring morphing to 
the Amiga, Formerly known as Image 
Master but recently renamed for legal rea- 
sons the software is now shipping in its 
9,20 revision. 

At its release the software offered mor- 
phing was one of its many image process- 
ing options. Now Black Belt have added 
warping to sweeten this already sugar- 
coated package. 

Like its rival MorphFlus, Image Mr 
offers both animated as welt as static 
morphs and warps, which again like its 
counterpart from AS DC, employ point 
editing as their desired processing format. 

Like CineMorph the package uses a 
double window display for the before and 
sifter images and boasts a new zoom 
option allowing accurate editing of fine 
detail, 

In addition the morph panel offers the 
option to employ an optional skin overlay 
similar to that used within Morph PI us enti- 
tled Arc vectors. Unfortunately the Image 
Mr option is noticed hly slower and lacks 
the instantaneous image mixing options 
and separate blending controls found 
within its counterpart. Nevertheless it's yet 
another string to the bow. 

The morph and warp interface benefit 
immensely from the main program's film 
strip option which when active instantly 
creates thumbnails of the new^-generated 


Moving morphs and warps 


Before the inevitable techno- jargon that goes along with any com- 
plex computing procedure I'll point out perhaps the perfect exam- 
ple ol an animated morph in action. IF there's an advert of recent 
times that's expiated morphing more than any other it's sporting 
example offered by fteebok. 

For the benefit of those readers who r ve missed this particular 
masterpiece in marketing the advert features sev- 
eral lycra-clad sporting types running, jumping 
and generally extolling — in graphic terms at 
least - the virtues of their expensive designer 
footwear. 

On the face of it nothing particularly 
unusual - apart from the amazing transfor- 
mation of the vanous athletes during the 
action. As the assorted Olympians stride 
across the screen they seamlessly flow 
from man to woman, black to white 
and back again without even breaking stride. 

I'm sure those of you wha J ve seen the ad will agree 
the effect is spectacular and never fails to produce the inevitable 
"How do they do that" query from the suitably impressed buying 
public. 

The answer to that particular question is simple - animated 
morphing at its best. Although it may be hard to believe anyone 
with an Amiga and suitable software can now create exactly the 
same results. But be warned, creating animated morphs is a very 
time-consuming procedure. 

Unlike static morphs their animated counterparts require a 
source and destination image for every frame in the sequence. So, 
for example, a 30 frame sequence would require 60 frames for a 
true animated morph. 

Obviously digitising, scanning and processing this amount of 


imagery takes a long time and a sizeable amount of disk space. Alas 
this is only the beginning due to rhe differences between each 
image pair in die sequence. As a result il r s impossible to simply set 
the paints on the beginning and end frames as you would with a 
static morph, allowing the software to generate the tweens. 

As you may have guessed automation can take a back seat when 
it COmes Lo truly animated morphs and warps. Because software has 
no concept of what you're trying to achieve, ideally every one of the 
60 before and after frames should be adjusted manually. 

Although this may sound about as appetising as a broken glass 
barm cake it's not nearly as painful as the initial description sug- 
gests, thanks primarily to key frames and the option to 
save points from one image and then load or carry 
them to the next Frame. 

Because of point carrying, editing time is vastly 
reduced, as the original points need only be moved 
rather than added from scratch for ever frame in the 
sequence. 

In addition Lo canying points, adding key frames to 
the sequence can make Itfe much easier as in affect 
you are adding target point positions within the 
sequence which allows the program to tween some 
of the frames for you — at the expense of a slight loss in accuracy. 

Obviously key frames can save a lot of Lime but if must be 
stressed that key framing i$ basically a compromise in disguise. If 
you only apply a few key frames in a long sequence the end results 
will obviously suffer badly in relation to a similar sequence with a 
key frame at every other frame. 

A similar key framing and point carrying process applies when 
dealing with animated warps within MorphPlus and Image Mr. Alas 
animated warps aren’t directly supported with CineMorph - a real 
pity - 


The only downside is that is can become a 
little confusing a* tp which points on each 
image relate to each other. 

Like the twp other packages in the 
round-up, the program also boasts defin 
able transition and dissolve options. An 
added bonus shared with MorphPlus is 
the ability to define separate settings for 
selected groups which means,, un ike 
Cine morph, individual elements within 
morphs or warps can be transformed <\t 
different rates, 

As you'd expect, Image Mr also boasts 
key Ufa me options for animated morphs 
and warps plus the option to save and 
load points as required. As for speed the 
package fails

frames. And when all the f ramies are com- 
plete the film player built into the warp 
and morph control panels allow syou to 
play back your creation in miniature at the 
frame rate of your choice. 

It there's is one area in which Image Mr 


scores particularly well it is in 
speed of editing and ease of 
use. Urtlike both the oppo- 
sition packages, the pro- 
gram defines before 
and after points as sim- 
ple crosses on the 
source and target 
images. 

To morph or warp 
a feature means sim- 
ply adding the points 
to the source image. 

These are then instantly 
generated on the target 
where you then simply 
move the target points to 
the position of your choice,

somewhere between GneMorph and 
MorphPlus and like all three packages it's 
surprisingly quick considering the com- 
plexity of the subject. 

As far as quality is concerned again 
Image Mr falls roughly between its coun- 
terparts. Like CineMorph the program is 
particularly strong when morphing ele- 
ments within a fairly uniform background. 
For example bulging eyes and features 
with soft or undefined edges morph 
extremely well 

Alas, like CineMorph, the program does 
suffer in comparison with MorphPlus in 
that hard edges tend to ghost. As you 
probably see from the Image Mr baby-to- 
owl example, when the head shrinks the 
edges do tend to fade and ghost rather 
than transform. 



erdict 


Although sfs easy lo knock the output, 
both the morph and warp options are 
extremely well implemented and are 
only out-gunned on the flexibility and 
output stakes by MorphPlus. 

For the enthusiast looking to make his 
or her debut in serious image process- 
ing, Image Mr is the ideal choice. It 
must be stressed that morphing and 
warping are only a small pad of the 
Image Mr repertoire, which in total 
offers image processing and special 
effects numbering in the hundreds. 


CineMorph 


Unlike bath MorphPlus and ImageMaster 
this particular chestnut takes a totally differ- 
ent approach to both morphing and warp- 
ing. Rather than umq the point approach 
of its counterparts the program employs a 
mesh system which allocates areas with 
each square of the mesh which are then 
moved during the morph or warp to the 
position of their counterparts on the target 
imag«. 

The software itself will product both 
static morphs and warps plus animated 
morphs - with the assistance of key frames. 







rt 


tf 


Unfortunately there appears no automated 
method of producing animated warps. 

Given a little effort, it's possible to simu- 
late the effect by splitting a sequence ot 
frames intn numerous sections which can 
then be processed individually using the 
static warp option. 

The results could then be appended 
together to form a pseudo animated warp. 
It involves a lot more effort than is neces- 
sary with the other programs, but at least 
animated warping is theoretically possible. 

The interlace employs the duel window 
design similar to that offered by Image Mr - 
but thafs where the similarities end. For 
example there's no built-in zoom option, 
instead close inspection requires the win- 
dow to be stretched via the sizing gadget 
in the classic Workbench style. 

Obscured 

Although the aforementioned resizing 
technique is quite usable, it does mean that 
close inspection of one image inevitably 
means that at least part of the second 
image is obscured. Another minor gripe is 
the inability to adjust the contrast and 
brightness of the source and target images 
- particularly useful when you're dealing 
with dark or complex artwork. 

Actually adjusting the aforementioned 
mesh is a simple case of dick and drag, 
with group point selection taken care of 
courtesy of shift and click combinations. 
Additional rows or columns can be added 
to the mesh by hot key or menu selections.. 
Actually specify-

simply a matter of placing an area of the 
mesh ewer the desired point and then re- 
arranging the same points on the target 
image. 

As you can probably see from the 
examples like Image Mr, this particular 
approach to defining transformation is 
extremely good on soft areas such as eyes, 
but unfortunately suffers quite badly, 
especially in relation to MorphPlus - when 
applied to hard edges and outlines. 

The problem of ghosting haunts 
CineMorph as it does Image Mr, 
Admittedly this does sound rather damn- 
ing, but it's not an insurmountable prob- 



lem 11 you are willing to put in a little a ^ 
tional effort.. 

For example when a sequence or stiis 
complete there's no reason why tl

‘rengths. 

Above all, the package's strongest asset 
nas to be it's price, which, at literacy hall 

I n at of MorphPlus must make it an attrac- 
tive option to users who already have a 
Tiage processing system and merely wish 
■o add the ophon to morph and warp. 


However, if you're planning your first 
■ntative steps Into image processing the 
Iditional £70 required for Image Mr 
vould be a very vwse move consideong 
Tie huge collection of additional effects 
:.nd composition tools that come in addi- 
tion to the program's morphing and 
warping options. 



MorphPlus 


As you may already be aware MorphPlus is 
the latest addition to the ADPro image pro- 
cessing system. Like its predecessor Fred - 
ADPro'i frame editing and sequence com- 
positor it works as both a stand-alone 
package as well as seamlessly integrating 
into the ADPro environment. 

For example, if any would-be user 
already has ADPro on their system installing 
MorphPlus In the same drawer means that 
all the loaders, savers and operators from 
each become a shared resource. 

While we're on the subject of operators, 
this is a perfect opportunity to mention the 
"Plus" in MorphPlus. In addition to static 
and animated morphing and warping the 
package offers a selection of new ADPro 
style operators including warp, rotate, rip- 
ple, .sphere, twirl and perspective 

Firm grip 

By now you should have a firm grip of 
what can be achieved with the warping 
operator but some of the others may need 
a little more explanation. 

Rotate, for example, allows circular areas 
La rotated to the angle of your choice while 
the ripple option allows you to add slash 
points from which an unlimited number of 
user-definable ripples emerge. 

AN the user needs do is define the splash 
point and assign the intensify and general 
dynamics of the effect. Next on the list 
comes the sphere option which allows total 
control over the familiar wrap-la- sphere 
feature found on numerous paint packages. 




Twirl, the penultimate operator on the 
list, works in a similar manner to rotate but 
adds a definable twirl by twisting a preset 
circular area. 

Lastly we come to perspective scale. 
Again a rather self-explanatory effect, but 
ike all the new operators it's been imple- 
mented beautifully via the now familiar 
ADPfO-Style grey Scale operator screens 
which accompany all the effects listed. 

Ihe interface of MorphPlus at first 
glance is almost identically Id ADPro with 
the only noticeable exception being the 
parent program's separation controls and a 
slight ^-arrangement of the various screen 
gadgets. A pointer to the similarity of the 


two is the requester which appears if you try 
to bad ADPro in addition to MorphPlus. 
The aforesaid requester instantly informs 
you that a copy of ADFro <s already running. 

In addition to MorphPlus - the program 
- the package also supplies Fred as part oF 
the bundle and, of course, Morph itself, the 
program that automates the sequent i at 
warping and morphing options. 

Morph, unlike the MorphFlus program, is 
not stand-alone and requires that 
MorphPlus oir ADPro be active before any 
processing whether animated or otherwise 
can commence. 

Unlike both its counterparts, Morph

Graphics 


defaults to & single image window which 
employs a definable onion skin effect to 
show both source and target images simul- 
taneously, The mix of the two can be 
adjusted to provide the perfect mi x via a 
slider which determines the relative trans- 
parency of each image. 

in addition to definable image mix, the 
interface also boasts the option to adjust 
brightness and contrast on each of the 
images within the display. For complex 
warps and morphs this is a real godsend. 


Authority 


When such a high degree of controf is 
combined with the freely interruptible 
screen refresh and instant zoom. 
Morph Plus begins to stamp its authority as 
the Amiga's premier warping /morphing 
environment. 

To actually set up either a morph or 
warp, points are added via a mouse click 
and keyboard com bin at ion. Each point 


appears with its counterpart appended via 
a connecting link which can then be 
stretched to the desired point on the tar- 
get image. 

Once a series of points are complete 
they can then be linked via another dick 
and keyboard combination to form a 
group. These groups can then be selected 
as individuals, moved around the screen, 
cut, pasted and deleted as required. 

In addition, once selected, groups 
become separate entities within the pro- 
duction and, like Image Mr, MorphPlus 
allows each group to have its own Fade 
and transition settings within the overall 
project 

As a result any element can transform 
or fade as and when required. If s even 
possible to specify that selected features 
should remain the same, so, for example,, 
the beard of a source subject could be 
grafted on to the face of its dean-shaven 
target image. 

As with all three packages, points and 



When all pi the above, plus the whole host of subtle additions and, superior outp £ 
quality are added together, Morph Plus can rightfully claim the LilSe as the best in thl 
business. 

However, as usual there's a price to be paid. Firstly like Sts parent program ADR- 
MorphPlus is a mat memory monster, needing at least four megs of Ram to operate * 
addition Workbench 2 is an essential as indeed is an accelerated machine and a ha : 
disk, although the manual implies the latter of the two are optional -ho, ho.,.. 

As the price tag and system requirements indicate, MorphPlus is a professional 
age and proud of it For those who fall into that bracket and consider perf orman 
rather than price their pnme consideration, there's only one choice. 

But for the semi-pro/enthusiast building a system Irom scratch Image Mr al just £l“> 
has to be the obvious choice, as to build an arguably belter system with a comhinat:. 
of AD Pro and MorphPlus would set you back a staggering £5&G plus - and tha‘ 
before the hard disk, accelerator and other image processing essentials. 


groups can be saved and loaded as 
required but in addition the program 
offers the option to carry specified features 
on to the next frame of sequential pro- 
jects, thereby avoiding any time wasting 
incurred "during the load and save process 
employed by the opposition. 

Other editing Features include the abil- 
ity to hide points and group selections in 
order to further clarify what on a complex 
project can become a very confusing col- 
lection of inter connected points and 
vectors. 

Fastest 

As you'd expect, key frames also play 
their pari, so with the combination of 
group carries and key frames, Morph plus 
h easily the fastest editing environment of

Evesham

internal Drive 

I (Evesham Micros £39 .99 ) 

Problem: internal drive on Amiga 500 starts 
choking on everything you teed rt, munch- 
ing disks, or just plain not working, 
Solution 1: suck you brains out with a 
vacum cleaner and drop your Amiga in the 
bin. Solution 2; take it to the menders and 
get an estimate of the damage. 

Wait till he says the drive needs replac- 
ing and say right-O, pay him his fee for the 
estimate and go home el quicko. Get on 
the blgwer and order an internal drive from 
Evesham and ft it using the simple instruc- 
tions, labour costs = 0, and it doesn't Lake 
an electronics genius to do it either. 

The drive is good quality, in my opinion 
better than the native Amiga one that it 
replaces (they are generally pretty ropey as 
•3 rule). The button to pop the disk out has 
been altered to lit the oddly positioned 
hole on the side of an Amiga, so yes, it's 
supposed to look all wiggly like that. 
Lovely job,

Dual Drive 

(Power Computing £125) 

This is the real king of the external drives, 
killing Several birds with one very large 
store. More like a brick actually. ff J s not 
what you might call a slimline drive but 
then it does contain two complete disk 
drive units and delivers twice the punch in a 
package only a tad larger than the old fash- 
ioned fatline single drives. 

The drive contains the same features as 
the company's popular PC830B single 
drive, which is to say theit is sold with Blitz 
Amiga hardware, -'soFtware Combo enabling 
you to back up disks at lightning speed and 
it has a virus blocker and anti-click 
mechanism- 

Amiga Blitz is part software and part 
hardware. On the back of the drive is a 


Hardware E5 



T here comes a time in every Amiga owner's life when he discover that although 
the Amiga has a nice neat little disk drive inside, life ain't so sweet when all you 
do ss change disks all day. An externa I drive is what's needed, and dang me 
poem if there aren't about 68 billion on the market. 

If you don’t have a second drive you should really get one as il adds a lot to your enja^ 
men! of your machine. Imagine copying a disk without having to swap the disk a few 
times? Or how about loading a btg game simply by putting the first two disks in both 
drives and sitting back? 

There are various types to choose from, some with little LED track displays, some thal 
click and don't click, some are thick and some are slim, but which is best for you? Well the 
best one is really always the cheapest one. 

Drive technology has really come on in recent years and almost all the standard slimline 
drives are the same in reliability and function give or take the odd few duds. Generally the 
drive mechanisms are from the same lew manufacturers, with the casings and interfaces 
bolted on by the retailer. On with the reviews! 



Phil South looks at the pick of the new 
floppy drives on offer and asks: 
"Can you have too many floppies?" 


function switch which selects anti virus 
mode, normal mode, or Blitz mode, and the 
latter is used in conjunction with the soft- 
ware to create one of the Fastest disk copiers 


ever devised. There are small drawbacks to 
this function, however. 

You have to re-boot before using the 
drive in any of the modes, and you can't 
use the drive normally with Workbench 
when in Blitz mode. 

To avoid any problems with power 
overheads, the unit has its own power 
supply, though 3 r d have thought for use 
with the Al 5 DO / A20 00/ A 1000 this 
wouldn't be a problem, There's a port on 
the back for daisy chaining and a disable 
switch so you can turn the drive off when 
a program doesn't like external drives, I 
think this is brill, and I hope Power

Micros 

External Drive 

(Evesham Micros £47.99) 

If there's such a thing as a good bog stan- 
dard external drive, then this rs probably it. 
Slimline design, disable switch, through 
port for daisy chaining, it's all there, and 
the price is right. 

This is the same unit that Evesham have 
been making for years, and comparing it 
with the one I bought about five yeara ago 
I notice that it's identical. Why change any- 
thing if it does the job, eh? No frills, but 
then who really needs them? 

This h the unit on test that I can really 
comment on the reliability of - five years 
without a single screw-up. Not bad. Not as 
slim as the Zappo, or curvy as the Cumana, 
but drop dead solid.

C AX 354 

(Cumana £56) 

As I recall back in the old days, Cumana 
were the people who used to make disk 
drives for everything, BBC, Acom r Sinclair

Snouty and get Lo the point! Ed) Sorry. tL r s 
nice to see that they're still around, and so

Daisy chaining 

The act of chaining another drive on to 
the back of another one. Some disk doves 
have another drive port on the back and 
you can plug another drive into it. The 
name comes from the way the drives look 
when fixed together resembling a daisy 
chain. 

Device name 

All drives on an Amiga system have a 
name, and to make rt easy the names arc 
device names, that is to say they have a 
colon Jr : w on the end. The internal drive is 
called DFO:, Lhe next external drive is 
called DF1:, then DE2r etc. Interestingly 
enough, if you have a A-Max II Macintosh 
emulator, the First external drive ts the Mac 


Jargon buster 


drive, invisible to the system, and so the 
first Amiga drive is always 0F2;! Strange 
but true. 

Drive Click 

Amiga drives dick every few seconds or so 
because they ate looking for a disk in Lhe 
drive. Some PD programs exist to stop 
this, but some drives actually have a hard- 
ware solution to the problem. 

Mountlist 

On your boot disk or hard drive partition, 
the list which describes all you* devices 
and drives which are mounted to the sys- 
tem. The list describes the amount of sec- 


tors on the disk and what the drive 
number is. 

Power overhead 

Daisy chaining drives together cs a little bit 
hazardous on the ASOO, The power over- 
head (the power left alter some Is drawn 
by each device down the drive port) 
decreases to very low levels as more drives 
are added. One or two external drives is all 
you can really get away with, and it's 
always safer to add a drive with its own 
power supply. 

Slimline 

Drives used to be big lunking great bug- 
gers, and then came the slimline drive 
mechanism. We said at the time "some 
time all drives will be made this way" and 
we were nghl as usual.

has a short throw. The Zappo is in fact lhe 
slimmest drive of the bunch, although I'd 
say there's only about 3-5 mm in it. 

It's visibly smaller, and it could be my 
imagination but Zappo feels a lot more 
robust than the other units. The slimness of 
the thing means that the drive button is 
narrower, and could be a little harder on 
the finger, 

Lovely bright LED though, which gleams 


out even the sunlight is pouring through 
the office window onto the drive. Good 
solid job.

Drives to look out for 



This is a very clever unit designed tor use 
with Lhe KC5 Power PC Board, available In 
the UK through Bilcon Devices. The unit 
functions normally as a dual drive on the 
Amiga side, but the trick is thaL it can be a 
normal si^e or high density drive on both 
units. 

However, the really smooth part is that 
it can also be a high density and 
normal density drive on the PC side 
tao, meaning that you can read and write 
1,44Mb PC disks and run the programs 
from them. This makes windows applica- 


tions accessible to the KCS user, although 
First you 11 have to have a partition on 
your hard disk capable of holding 
all the files from the Windows master 
disks. (Okay, so you'll be running V-E-R-Y 
slow, but you can't have everything, eh?) 

If the KCS drive has the same build 
qua lily and reliability as its PC emulator 
then this will be the drive everyone will 
want to own, It'll be pricey but then of 
course you are getting a very high speci- 
fication product. 

No more details at the time of writing 
but by the neat issue of Amiga Co/rrpuong 
we should have at least some pictures of 
the thing, So keep a weather eye open. 


Amiga CDTV Drive 

(Commodate, £42) 

A cool black drive to go with the cool 
black CDTV. Just your basic 3,$* compact 
drive but in a nice satin finish black case 
to match the CDTV, Add a keyboard and 
a mouse in the same finish and you've 
miraculously turned your CDTV into a 
Fully functioning Black 1,3 Amiga with an 
internal CD ROM drive. 

Wow. Power Computing sell the entire 
k if n "caboodle with CDTV, mouse, key- 
board and disk drive for £599, which is 
extraordinary as this is cheaper than the 
CDTV used to be for just the unit alone! 


And the 
winner is... 

1, Power Computing 
Dual Drive 

You've got Lo love a product whkh a 
big and strong, The Range Rover d 
disk drive world. 

2, Zappo 

Slim and neat Good value. Not a 
more a sort of MR2, 

3, Evesham Micros 
External Drive 

Small, neat, cheap, IL does the job an 
messing about. ford Sierra, I'd say. 

4 Cumana 

Very posh if a little pricey in this f 
Dead good though. Think BMW. 

5, Evesham Micros 
Internal Drive 

Few circumstances when you’ll war i 
change your internal drive, bul when m 
do this is your man P following the me A 
ing analogy I guess this must be a kit crl 

Although the very best deal in exlf # 
drives is always lhe cheapest you can * 
at the time, I really like the Po*H 
Computing Dual unit. It's simple to 
and install and yet powerful in use. 

A tad more expensive than I per ;i. 
would like, but you get a lot lor y .* 
money t two drives worth £50 each, r 1 J 
virus checking and fast disk cop'. 
thrown in. You can do all these thing: * 
software (virus checkers and XCopy pm 
haps) but having them online in hardw 
does seem a very attractive option,

A s the pages of AC regularly prove 
Vlab is undoubtedly the best 
standalone frame grabber in the 
business, However, in the past it's suffered 
One major drawback as far as mass market 
appeal is concerned. 

Until now the system has been strictly an 
internal option for the AI50G and above. 
Fortunately lor A5Q0, A6Q0 and A12G0 
users all that has changed courtesy of the 
new Vlab/Par which consists of a slimline 
vanilla box with a connecting cable direct 
to the Amiga's parallel port. 

As tar as aesthetics are concerned we're 
not exactly talking awe-inspiring, as control 
of the beast is handled exclusively by the 
accompanying software. 

The only visrble sign erf life is a small LED 
on the rear of the unit which sits alongside 
a basic on/off toggle switch. Like the origi- 
nal internal version two female phones 
await the composite only input - again on 
the rear of the unit. 

Three-pronged 

In addition to the parallel cable the only 
other connection is the power supply 
which on the version tested consisted of a 
Europeamstyle block which required a two 
to three-prong converter prior to use. 

However, it must be stressed that the 
unit tested was a direct import from the 
German manufacturer. As a result it's highly 
likely units intended for UK distribution will 
boast standard plug connectors. 

In addition to the hardware, an all-new 
version of the Vlab software itself is supplied 
with the package, The new software is now 




V tah v. ?, fTfflNr totflfm* 
that fust keeps yf-ITrriy Eitlftr 

at v2. T „ offering several bug fixes and 
enhancements. 

These include support for Workbench 
J.O screen resolutions, transparent control 
of both internal and external Vlab formats, 
an option to save 24-bit files in the IFF- 
D EE P 'ormat as well as normal Iff 24. 

More subtle enhancements include 
improved support for the Harlequin graph- 
ics card plus an optional "Hue" slider a well 
as a whole host of new and updated ARexx 
commands, 

The software itself looks and operates 
just lake ail! previous versions with a senes of 
individual requesters available via pull- 
downs that allow a combination of cus- 
tomisation, image capture and processing. 

Although rather intimidating with its 
vast array of requesters actual operation is 
very straightforward thanks to a combina^ 
non excellent interface design and logical 
operation. 

Assuming youVe set up the system to 
suit and imported an image - either live or 
paused - conversion is usually the next task 
although if ultimate image quality is 
required the complete 
24-bit itself can be 
saved direct to disk in 
the format of your 
choice. 

ft conversion is 
required Vlab offers sev- 
eral unique features 
including the option to 
convert the 24 -bit cap- 
ture into any standard 
Amiga image including

This month the AC spotlight falls once 
again on Vlab, the Amiga's premier frame 
grabber - a product that's just found a new 
lease of life in its external form 



256 greyscales, 256 colours, or the ultimate 
quality of HaniB.. 

This alone makes Vlab stand head and 
shoulder* above the opposition, as creation 
of such images on other grabbing plat- 
forms would require the assistance of a 
dedicated image processing software such 
as ImageFSC or AD Pro - both of which 
weigh in at well aver £200. 

In addition to the impressive selection erf 
image formats the software also boasts a 
few primitive processing tools, not least of 
which is the essential de-interlace which 
automatically strips one of the interlace 


The ADPro connection

source and so on. Strangely there* 
no option to monitor the Incoming 

1 video signal necessitating the con- 
nection of a separate monitor or 
TV to the video source. 

Only when the grab has been 
made can the preview option be 
employed. However, even with the 
monitoring limitation the loader 
can and does save a lot o! time lor 
both you, and a hard pressed CPU, 
which previously would have to 
contend with a memory-hungry

field* producing rock solid results., With all 
the enhancements plus the option to grab 
sequential images from a live video source, 
what r s the catch? Welt in reference lo the 
internal version none at all, bur for the exter- 
nal system there is a compromise or two. 

Because a parallel connection \i unavoid- 
able slower than a direct Zorrc II, image 
transfer from Live Vlab to the Amiga does suf- 
fer. For single frames the difference between 
the two formats is negligible with tile only 
difference being that de-interlacing on the 
external tends to be a must rather than an 
option. 

In addition, the delay between the moni- 
tor window display and what the grabber 
actually captures does tend to increase on 
the external, requiring a certain amount ol 
guess work lor accurate capture. Not an 
insurmountable problem but nevertheless 
mildly imtatng. 

The only area that suffers badiy in relation 
to the internal is sequential grabbing, i^ain 
because of the limitations of the parallel link 
the grab rate is noticeably slower than that 
of its internal counterpart

external Vlab/Par and/or the update to the

loaders - contact The Amiga Centre

Announcing Lapcat... 


a new easy-to-use transfer solution for sending 
tiles between different types of computer. 


Lapcat was designed for the NCI 00. Amslrad s new Notepad Computer. To make file transfer easy something new 
was needed; the difficulties in sending files via the serial port are well known - the problems ol different 
connectors, different types of leads, baud rates and the software at the other end. Lapcat is a combined 
software/hardware package that transfers files quickly via the parallel port. 

The Lapcat software is built into the Amstrad NCI 00. The standard package consists ol the Lapcat lead plus 
software on disk for the computer of your choice. This will enable you to transfer files between an NCHX) and your 
chosen computer. Lapcat is not just for NC10D owners because you can buy software to transfer between any two 
of the supported computers. No technical knowledge is needed*

4D con trick? 


When I picked up your November issue 
54 from the newsagent's shelf, I read 
the Cover Disk label, thinking to mi-self 
"that looks good* Model 4D, a complete 
4D modeller and Tenderer." 

However wt>en I got home and reached 
the CoverDisk pages, I realised I had been 
had. The disk pages state "being a complex 
package, and one into which the author 
has invested a great deal of time and men- 
tal sweat, Model 4D doe^ not come r o v on 
in its complete form*. 

Please make your minds up! Is it com- 
plete or is it incomplete? I car apprec ale 
that shareware authors work hard and 
should receive donations, but at the same 
time I think you should make things dearer 
gn your front cover or disk label. Most peo- 
ple would, I think, resent paying for some- 
thing then finding out that ft wasn't what u 
said it was. 

I hope you can remedy this problem, as I 
do enjoy reading your magazine. I will jus? 
have to open it before I buy it in future. 

Mr Motley, Worthing 


label. Model 40 is complete in that 
none of its functions are disabled, and 
it saves your work to disk, 

What we should ftaitf s aid in the

Good point, Mr iVforiey l T m sorry it you feel 
cheated, but the mistake was nof on the disk 


am v. ruing with two requests for articles 
n sour magazine. My nine-yea Mild son 
uses our Amiga 500 in many different 
ways, including DTP, programming, and 
games playing. 

He also enjoys writing simple pro- 
grams in Amiga Basic and would like to 
oe able to encode a games program. Is it 
possible to print an article containing a 
sample program which would teach the 
reader about Basic programming and 
result in an executable file?

Aliens return 


The problem with Amiga Basic is that il is no 
longer supplied with the Amiga and il rs loo 
old and clunky ro qualify as a modem pro- 
gramming language. True many coders sut 
their teeth on this ancient language, but we 
tend these days to concentrate on mare 
popular packages such as Amos. 

Our regular Amos A/monac column caters 
for most ability levels, and os Amos is es sen* 
daily Basic with lots of added extras, I would 
advise you hoy a copy far your son. With 
diligence and persistence, he could be pro- 
ducing full colour arcade games within 
months, 

Dungeon Master is on old chestnut and 
has been covered extensively by most maga- 
zines. When still a current game , several 
complete gome guides were printed, so if 
you can hunt out on old Amigo mag you 
might be in luck, I'm afraid W€ con 'l devote

P, : teller 


I have noticed that there have been a number □! letters 
recently from Amiga users considering changing the r 
machines to a PC. 

Having seen Links Pro on a PC, I was very impressed 
The graphics are outstanding to say the least, and rt this is 
typical of all games or prospective games for the PC, then 
this is what I want. 

However haVmg read PC magazines for the last tew 
weeks, I believe that operating one isn't quite as straight 
lorwand as operating an Amiga, i mean, a mouse driver to 
run a mouse? Why can't you just plug in and go? 30Mb 
disk space fora paint program? Sounds incredible. 

I use my A500 Plus with hard drive for wordprocessing. 
Home Accounts, and playing games, but I want a 
machine which can give me the graphic quality of Links 
Pro. The Amiga version is nowhere near as good and is so 
slow in screen updates that ft is unplayable. 

The sort of graphic quality I want is that of the 
PlanetsFde demo produced by Psygnosii for CDTV. II this 
was available, I'd buy a CD-ROM drive and put up with 
having to swap it and my hard drive every time I wanted 


to use one or the other. 

However, after speaking to Psygnosls I am informed 
that the demo program will go no further. Why not? 
PPanetsidie is the sort of game \ thought CDTV was 
intended lor When CDTV was first announced I was going 
[o be one- pt i he first to purchase one, but having seen the 
software available and the lack of hard drive through part 
on the AS 70 I will wait a bit longer, 

When can we expect to see Flight simulators in the form 
ot Ptenet5*de? 



letter 


Furry fullbrooK Highbury 


You soy you've seen Links Pro on a PC, but you obviously 
haven't placed it, or the game's mind-numbing sfowness 
would have put you oh, Whai f z mure, the present batch of PC 
games are unkkefy to improve for a variety of reasons. 

First of ail, PC game programmers have encountered the 
dreaded and rrwjfi prehistoric 640k barrier. Due to the PC's 
obsolete design, single executable programs can never have 
more than 640k base memory in which to run, and there ore 


several gomes already which 
depend on the user fuming 
off many standard PC startup programs to free as much base 
memory as possible. 

Can you imagine having to edit your startup-sequence 
every lime you wanted to play a game ? 

Secondly, the VGA graphics standard has a fair number of 
colours and decent screen modes to offer, tool these wort 
fornpnfaWy stowiy when animation Is called for. The Amiga’s 
buik-in graphics chips work much more effectively than most 
VGA cards, (/lough the PC owner prepared to Spend hum 
deeds of pounds on a graphics accelerator could dose the 
gap. 

As for the future, AA chips offering lightning-quick 256 
colour animation, faster and bigger sprites, and more power- 
ful CPUs should keep the Amiga well ahead of any competi- 
tion, be it in the shape of PC clones or tiddly little cansa/e 
roys. 

Again, your objections to CDTV are valid, but don't be too 
surprised if CDTV software starts to look a tat more attractive 
over the next six months.

All washed out 


I have recently taken out a sending order for Amigo Computing and look forward to a 
long association with it. 

I have a problem perhaps you or one of your readers could help me with, I pur- 
chased a copy ol Magnetic Scrolls' 1 Wonderland game for my daughter whilst at a UK 
Amiga show, but have since spilled white spirit on the instruction book, ruining most of 
the contents. 

Can you tell me where I can get a replacement? I know Magnetic Scrolls have the 
copyright to the game, but I can't find any mention of them in AC If required, I have 
the original book which 3 can produce if necessary. Any assistance would be appreci- 
ated by an Alice in Wonderland girl. 

0 F Goodyen Caii Magvsa, Turkey 

Magnetx Scrolls pomes are distributed in the UK by Virgin Gomes (OS ? 960 2255). if you 
contact their customer services people and offer to send your original book or pay a nominal 
fee for the replacement, I'm sure they'll be able to help you. 

ft nol try our Qassifieds, found in the Amiga Market A smart ad mighi turn up o helpful 
fellow gamer. 


> 

Not tempted 

l r d like to air my views on Virgin's lure of 
the Temptress. This is the first virtual theatre 
game dm the Amiga, and it scored highly in 
all the reviews, 

I completed the game today and overall I 
found it to be very good. The graphics and 
sound were certainly a cut above the rest, 
and the concept of virtual 
theatre makes lor a very entertaining game. 

The only problem is that I only purchased 
the game six days ago! I don't consider 
myself to be a parti cularly good gamer, just 
a very dedicated one, To complete a full 
price game in only si* evening sessions, well, 
to bE honest I felt quite cheated. 

I'm sure that there are other readers who 
have completed this game even quicker 
than I have, and the problem with games of 
this ilk is that when you finish them you 
rarely go back ft/them, | bought Monkey 
Island 2 and Eye of The Beholder II almost 
three months ago, and ii am nowhere near 
completing either of them, 

What do you think? Are my complaints 
without foundation, or do you think as 3 do 
that Virgin could have done better? t hope 
to see more virtual theatre games in the 
Future, but I hope they will offer a bit more 
challenge. 

Ferry Edge, Hornchurch 

Your commits are not wi (tout foundation if 
the number of letters we receive from disap- 


pointed gome players is anything to go by. 
With the increased emphasis on graphics 
these days, it is becoming dear that some 
games offer little else. 

Monkey island 2 is a perfect example of 
o product which incorporates both superb 
gameplay and superb graphics , tbougb I 
mast admit I finished it in less than two 
weeks with the help of the Gamer cheat 
page. Other games have enjoyed less suc- 
cess, but given that we are in an early stage 
of the heavily graphic-based adventures , 
and that a standard has already been set 
by the lucasfilm games , we should see a 
gradual improvement, 

Gur Gamer editor ; Paul Roundel!, assures 


me that we will in future indicate the lasting 
appeal rating of fbrs type of adventure. 
Hope this helps you when the next virtual 
theatre (whatever that is - Ed) game is 
reviewed. 

Flopped Falcon 

I am sure you will be aware of Atari's latest 
computer, the Falcon. Jt is obvious that 
none of the existing Amigas can even 
hope to rival it* and what I want to know 
is what da you intend to do about it? 

I've got quite a few games for my 
Amiga and I would prefer it if I could buy 
a new computer which would still run 
them, but If the Amiga cannot offer the 
quality of games and programs that Atari 
can, I will definitely consider leaving the 
Amiga for the Falcon. 

If this Falcon is all that It's cracked up 

to be it should be able to emulate the 

* 

Amiga anyway. 

F mean, how can the Amiga 500/600 
compete with over 65,000 colours on 
screen, a palette 262,144 colours, Over SO 
video modes, high quality gen locking, a 
blitter, and CO quality sound! 

Neil Hudson, Bailey 

How can falcon compete with J 6.7 million 
colours , 265,000 on screen in any resolu- 
tion, a built-in flicker fixer hard drive inter- 
face, massfve base of existing software and 
developers, true multitasking, incredibly fast 
graphics chips, 2Mb chip RAM, and the 
Amigo nome ? 

Atari's wunderkind is yet to appear in 
the shops, yef the AI200 i$ already on 
sale , hocked up hy Commodore 's £4 
million advertising campaign. First ship- 
ments of ihe machine sold auf he/tire they 
had been delivered and a number of major 
software houses have already pledged their 
support, 

In short, giver? the 5Fs terminally ill mar- 
ket and the delays in production, it is dear 
that the Al 200 will wipe the floor with 
falcon. 


In praise of PD 


I am writing to extol the virtues of 
purchasing PD software. Last year I 
purchased Footbal League 
Manager, a brilliant program hy 
Tony McManuy deigned to keep a 
record nl any fooLb.ilI league I able, 
l duly sent off my L5 fee and wav 
delighted In receive this year's 
update* 

The program now has Ihe facility 
So update and print out any league 
together wish goal scorers, squads, 
man of the match* and match 
cum menu. In I act, a complete 
record of all that is relevant in the 
league 

Mr McManus even went to grt^s 
lengths to help me wish a printing 
problem I was having. When I told 
him Ihe disk wouldn't print to my 
i.C-200 printer, a great deal of 
postal toimj and Irg inrj eventually 
led to him configuring the disk for 
me. 

The point h f would I have got 
the same service il I had paid £80 
for a commercial program of this 
type? The answer Is no, because 
there is no com inertia I program 
of this type, and the majority of 
companies don I ant to know 
anyway. 

I have had similar help from Paul 
Hobemhaw of Mental Image* 
and in both cases Paul and 
Turly, realising I was new to com- 
puting, didn't treat me as if I was 
thick and gave me loads of 
expert help. 

To anyone reluctant lo try PD I 
would say go ahead and do it. 
Provided you pay your shareware 
fees* you will be surprised and 
delighted with the service you will 
gel, 

Brian Ball. Ipswich 

4j you pojnt oaf. paying the small 
shareware regiilrafron fees normally 
pays off many times over, as many 
authors will be more than happy fa 
discuss their programs with you , keep 
in touch, and supply upgrades. 

Your letter is an excellent reason for 
all our readers fo nofe where one of 
our CoverDrsk programs ?s iharewore 
rather than P£f or freeware. 

One pciifJl I would raise is that 
you're a hrffe hard on commercial 
companies, many have efficient user 
registration and upgrade services, 
some supply regufar newsletters on 
their products, and a growing number 
are realising trie importance o/ offers 
mg quality ci/sfomer support 


Fly by night 


My copy of Airbus A 3 20 did not load* so l returned it to Thalion in Germany, "hat was 
on 9th September and despite another letter on 28th September \ have still heard 
nothing, When I bought A3 20 F registered with Uialion using the postcard supplied. 

How do I get a replacement? Have any of your readers come up against a foreign 
software supplier which ignores complaints and il so, what did they do? The program 
is rather pricey to write off r so please help, 

Crahom M Ross, Largs 

If a product fails fo function, the consumer should always first return it to the retailer from 
which it was bought, as this person rs legally responsible under Jow. Assuming you bought 
■4T20 direct from Thalion (you dan? slate whether you did or not), the company should 
have replaced it, especially as you are a registered user. 

A more direct method would be to phone the company in Germany. While this would be 
expensive, it is more likely to produce resort j. If art else fails , try your local Trading Standards 
Officer.

M'-r 


trouble with modem computers, especially the Amiga, is their dependency on 
RAM. The base level machine ts capable of a lot, but it's only when you try to 
push things a bit that you realise a lot more RAM is needed to really make the 
machine sing and dance, especially if you are looking at mid to high-tevel applications. 

One problem is that memory can mean a lot of things. RAM stands for Random Access 
Memory, and although there is a really important reason for it being called this, forget it 
and concentrate on the word RAM. RAM Is the name for the temporary memory space 
Qti [he Amiga computer, into which programs are loaded before they are run, 

Any memoiy you add to your Amiga is expansion memory Of fast RAM, unless aeded 
through the A5Q0 Plus or A600 trapdoor, in which case it is chip RAM, Fast RAM is distinct 
from chip RAM, which is a preset amount ol memory used by the computer lor the graph- 
ics and sound used by the custom chips. The more memory you have, the less space in 
chip memory is taken up by programs, giving you more leg room for graphics and sound. 
Chip RAM is usually the base ievd dF RAM you have in the machine when you buy it. 

The original Amiga 1000 had 256k of chip RAM and In all could address 6Mb of RAM 
maximum. The 500 and 2000 had the same 8Mb upper limit, and although later versions 
of the machines had the fatter Agnus allowing 1Mb ol Chip RAM, most of them were 
SI 21c. Chip machines. 

Chips for alt 

When the 500 Plus was released, the chip RAM limit was lully and finally fixed at 1Mb, 
but the AejflO soon pushed that up to 2Mb. The A 1 200 also has 2Mb of chip RAM., as 
does the A4OO0, and we can look forward to between 4Mb and 3Mb of Chip RAM 
machines in the not loo distan t future , 

One thing to bear in mind is that even when you have a certain amount of RAM in 
your machine some of it is eaten up by the system, so when you say you have 1 Mb ol 
RAM in your machine, only about 800k of that will be available to you once the machine 
is hooted and ready to rock and roll, So if you have a 2Mb animation which needs a clear 
2Mb ID run, then you need 3Mb to run it. 

It's best to ignore the first 1 Mb of any RAM you might have, and think only in terms of 
l\)f expansion memory as your free memory. T his is why Amiga 2000s fo eitar i .1- ■ wit ■ 
“3 Mb" really have 5* Mb on board including the base memory. 

There are many different types of HAM expansion. FirsL the traditional apdoor type, 
which fils under the trapdoor in the bottom of an AiQQvSQOPIus. Next there is the moth 
erboard type, of which there are very few r which fit into a socket on the motherboard, 
fsome trapdoor expanders use a tead plugged into the Gary chip on Lhe motherboard to 
allow for the extra RAM). 

Mejti there are the DMA slot units which use the slot on the end of an A50G or Plus. 
These are easiest to fit and give you the most memory. Finally a new beast on the scene is 
the misnamed "smart card" type, which is a card designed to fit into the PCMCIA slots 
on AGOG and A1 20G machines. These can carry memory or even programs, although very 
lew of these special uses for the slot have been revealed. 


Phil South examines memory expansion, the 
first upgrade most Amiga owners require 


AMRAM 
Megaboard 
A500 1Mb 

(Evesham Micros £42.99 

The Evesham 1Mb Megaboard is a trap- 
door model with a white flying lead con- 
taining a small daughter board with a 
socket far your Cary chip. 

Adding RAM to your A50G was always 
easy, but adding more than the regular 
512 k upgrade is a little harder. 

The Gary chip has to be circumvented 
in some way, and this is commonly 
done with a little (lying lead and a 
daughter board which fils into the Gary 
socket. 

You pop the Gary chip out and insert it 
in the daughter board. The daughter 
board goes in the Gary chip slot, o: 
course the main board goes into the trap 
doer expansion slot. 


The trick with this board b that it 
tures a pass th roughs allowing you to 
another board to the circuit, although 
the main you are limited to addii 
another RAM board, possibly a really 
one with a battery backed clock on 
bringing the tola! memory to 2 1 
(5 1 2K+51 2K+1 Mb=2Mb!). |usl 512* 
the HAM in the final configuration is 
RAM. 

A good route to add just a little 
'RAM to give your old Kkkstart 13 
that extra little push over the cliff tor 
tfcmal graphics capability. 

This isn't the best idea for heavy 
animation or 3D rendering, but it 
give you access to one or two gra| 
modes otherwise closed to you as a 
level user.

AM PLUS A500+ 
1Mb 

(Evesham Micros £37.95) 

This card is a simple trapdoor alternative 
to the official Commodore RAM upgrade. 
No dock or any unnecessary frills, apart 
from the cut-off switch, which is an easily 
accessible switch for disabling the RAM, 
should you need to do so. Easily accessi- 
ble means that if you leave the trapdoor 
off you can tilt the machine up and reach 
■n and flip the switch. (Remembering of 
course to turn the Amiga off before you 
start to reconfigure the amount of mem- 
ory it's looking for; a quick way to crash 
and buml) 

Once fitted you have a 2Mb chip RAM 
Amiga 500 Plus, sufficient to allow Lhe use 
of more RAM hungry graphics modes but 
not really enough to go for large 50 ren- 
dered objects-, or OTP for that matter, 
other than simple single or double page 
documents.

A 500 
1 .5 Mb 

(Evesham Micros £69.99) 

An alternative to the 1Mb Megaboard 
and additional board b the 1 5Mb solu- 
tion including the extra memory and 
clock. The board is similar to the 
Mega board but is longer and with a black 
flying k-ad terminating in the same 
daughter board for me Cary chip. 

The board has no through port but 
then as e: already has rht capability which 
a through port would provide, it doesn't 
need one ft does however ha-.'e a disable 
switch, which like the unit for Lhe A60Q 
mentioned just now means you can turn 
off the extra RAM physkaJly to allow the 
execution of software which takes excep- 
tion to being run in m expanded 
machine. 

Once the unit is fined you have the full 
2Mb of RAN!, of Which 512K is Chip RAM, 
This means you have more teg room, but 
the 512k chip limit still means you will 
experience some problems with out of 
memory errors, although certainly less 



Memory 


than with 512k or 1 Mb, 

(Note; this board is also available 
unpopulated with clock for £39\ 95.) 




AMRAM A500 
512k 

(Evesham Micros £22.99] 

This is a tiny board, which can be used a 
simple stand-alone 51 2k upgrade for 512k 
Amiga 5005,, but also finds use as an addi- 
tional dock and RAM upgrade for systems 
using the Megaboard 1Mb card with 
through port. 

On the back edge of the card is an 
on/off switch to switch out the extra RAM 
for the benefit of programs which can't 


No matter how much memory you 
have you will be prey to memory 
fragmentation. Imagine lhe 
Amiga''! memory as a big round 
pizza. (Slurp, Ed) You cut a quarter 
of it but replace it without eating 
it, then you cut another quarter of 
It and replace it. It looks like a 
whole pizza but the largest slice 
you can cut from the remaining 
pieces Is a half or a quarter. 

Slices 

Next you cut another slice 
amounting to a third of the total 
pizza, and again replace it on the 
plate and; go on to cut a quarter 
from the piece which was a third of 
the total area, Now if you try to cut 
a slice which is a third of the total 
area, you can t find a piece big 
enough to do that. The biggest 
piece of memory pizza you can cut 
For use in programs is a quarter 
(think about it - Ed). 

This is what the memory of Lhe 
Amiga is like; apportion a piece ol 
memory for a big piece of data and 
you can replace it after use, but 
you'fl never re-lntegrate iL with the 
rest of memory, unless you re 
boot. This is why having a lot ol 
memory is a good thing, because it 
allows you lo go for longer before 
the frag monster catches up with 
you, or you run out of sufficient 
continuous (all In one slice) avail 
memory.

handle it. This is part of a interesting 
modular system, and it seems to me that 
Evesham have gone out of their way to 
ensure that there's an upgrade path tor 
everyone along the way from a simple 
51 Jk doubler right up to 2Mb mini-mus- 
cle machine. 

The A500 really needs the extra RAM, 
but as previously stared the 51 2k Chip 
RAM limitation will get in the way of real 
power user computing. (Also available 
without dock for £1 7.99.) 



AMRAM A600 
1Mb 

[Evesham Micros £44,99) 

The A6GG version of the AMRAM for 
A500 Plus, with the same benefits, A 
neater construction to fit the more petite 
A600 trapdoor, and the same disable 
switch as before, but this time mounted 
underneath the circuit board as there isn't 
any clearance for the thing to poke out 
like it does on the other designs. (Most of 
the internals in a A600 are so closely 
packed you r d have trouble sliding a 
cigarette paper between them!) 

The only real difference between this 
and the A5Q0 Plus version is the shorter 
and fatter edge connector, but again this 
brings your machine up to 7Mb chip 



RAM. The unit has an on board clock, so 
you can set this and the battery will keep 
the time ticking over even when the com- 
puter isn'Lon. 



Power 
Computing 
A600 1Mb 

(Power Computing £49.95) 

A slimmer board than the Evesham 
Micros job, due to the use of a Lithium 
coin-sized watch battery rather than the 
bulky cylindrical Varta jab. A 1Mb 
upgrade for the AGOO giving you 2Mb 
chip. 

Board construction is excellent, and 
the FCB itself is a cool blue colour rather 
than the usual green. 

The documentation in almost all the 
Power Computing stuff is very 
nicely printed and readable^ although 
confusingly the docs lot both this unit 
and the A6Q0 Automatic Kickslarl 
Switcher are in the same book. The A600 


Ppwrr CampErling 
Aet-00 1*Wb 


instructions take up a single page, so 
wouldn't it have been better to use a sin- 
gle sheet of paper? It's a very nice little 
book, though. 



Power 

Computing 

A50O/A5O0+ 

2Mb 

(Power Computing £109) 

This unit daps onto the end of 
the A500 using the expansion port 
designed for Lhe A590 hard disk/memory 
expansion unit. It doesn't give you a hard 
disk, but it does give you the full 2Mb of 
memory. 

Along with the 51 2k base memory and 
the 5 1 2k expansion memory which you 
may have in your machine already, this 
gives you JMb in total, 2.5Mb of fast 
RAM and 51 2k of Chip RAM. 

The unit is a big flat metal box contain- 
ing the familiar blue circuit board and 
room for 8Mb of fast RAM, The test 
Unit was a 2Mb unit and so only four of 
the upright memory chips were fitted, 
and it doesn't take a mathematical genius 
to figure out that these are 512k RAM 
chips. 

Loose 1x4 ZIP chips {£14.95 each) 
tor the user to add themselves to the 
system are available from Power 
Computing, That's four per Mb, and so to 
completely populate the board to 
3Mb you'd need another 12 chips (16 in 
total) costing you an extra £179.45. The 
amount of RAM on board is set by a cou* 
pie of jumpers on the circuit board and 
these must be changed when you add 
more RAM. 

This is one route for the real power

those porky Varta Jobs, and the overall 
construction of the board is good 
although it doesn't have an on .'off switch. 
(This is possible in software anyway, but 
this isn't as concrete a solution as a h ■ rd - 
ware switch.) 

The docs give details on installation 
and the steps required for a machine 
packing a fatter Agnes to be expanded to 
1Mb of Chip RAM, once the 1.5Mb board 
is installed.

machines will not be fitted with the latter 
^gnes anyway, so this may not be an 
option for you. 

With the modification in place the first 
I Mb of any memory configuration you try 
will be Chip memory.Fulil instructions 
about the solder job are included, and the 
bit of wire and jumper pFug you need to 
do it, phis a disk of RAM Utili as well! Nice 
one, Power. 




Power 
Computing 
A500 1Mb 

(Power Computing £45) 

Similar idea to the Evesham 1Mb 
board, with the same type of through port 
and Cary board. This model has the 
added bonus of the same instructions for 
upping chip RAM on fatter Agnus 
machines, and the same little lead for you 
to do it with. 

No battery backed clock here, but you 
can easily add 1 one using the through port, 
bringing the available memory to 1.5Mb if 
>ou just add this unit or 2Mb Including 
additional ST 2k with clock. The Chip RAM 
will be just 5 1 2 K_ unless you make the 
previously mentioned tricky and danger- 
ous hardware mod (on Blue Peter they'd 
tell vou to get an adult to help you). You 
ger a disk of RAM utils to add to the value. 
Can you spell value For money, boys and 
girts? 




AX601 A600 
1Mb 

ijAshcom £44.95 

Another tidy [ob irom Ashcom, this 
time the A60D version. .Also available in a 
version with or without clock (again the 
sans clock version being 12 cheaper) the 
review unit sported the clock md big flab 
tened cylinder Varta battery. No switch on 
this version, leaving you to switch the 
RAM out by software means 4 you need 
to. This k a good basic 1Mb unit, taking 
you up to the magic 2Mb with 1Mb of 
that being chip memory In the A60Q. Nice 
tidy design and good construction.

ADDAX 

A500/A500+ 

2Mb 

(Ashcom £115) 

This is a 2Mb external device which can 
also be expanded up to &Mb, Basic ton- 
liguration allows for use with other 
peripherals by way of the through port 
and comes fitted with 2Mb of RAM. 

More chips can be added to bring the 
coni igu ration tip to 3Mb, but each Lime 
more RAM IS added jumpers have to be 
altered on the main board ot your 
ADDAX, You can buy the box with more 
RAM on board from the start, with ihe 
4Mb version being £165 and the hilly 
populated 8Mb version running out at 
£265, 

Construction is very solid, though the 
casing is plastic and takes a bit of prising 
to get into. Undoing the screws doesn't 
release the cover, you have to bend the 
plastic, which I have to say I wasn't at all 
happy about. On the upside, though, the 
unit is the same size and shape as the end 
of an A500 and only about 1 ,5 inches 
wide, and so it's certainly more sleek and 
good looking than the functional but 
frankly pug-ugly Power Computing unit. 



ADD501 A500 
512k 

(Ashcom £19.95) 

This tiny unit is a 51 2k expander for the 
A$00, either for stand alone use or f or 
augmenting a 1 Mb board with through 
port, There is a clock on board (the ver- 
sion without dock is L2 cheaper) and a 
disable switch lor killing the RAM should 
you happen across a program which 

doesn't like fast RAM. 

Unlike the other boards which have 
cheap slide switches, the Ashcom unit has 
a nice positive stem switch. The battery is 
the by now familiar Varta job used on 
most of the other units with clocks. 
Constructions quality was very good on 
the review unit and the board design very 
tidy, 



New Media 
Corp PCMCIA 
2 Mb 

(Calculus £129.99) 

A new idea, at least they've not been 
available until now,, is the RAM card for fit- 



AJcw 

Catp PCHCM 
2Mb 



ng in the PCMCIA slot in a A6QQ (and 
jcently of course the Amiga 1200). In a 
tunningly tiny package the size of a credit 
ard you get a full 2Mb of extra memory, 
nd it's installed in a second without even 
ouc hing the rest of your machine, 

IT is is the future of RAM expansion, to 
je sure, but don't lean on It when it's in 
>r you'll snap it! (lust kidding!) There's no 
iced for a disable switch, because il you 
Jon't want to use it you tan simply yank it 
?ut . 

Power must, of course, be off as the 
;afd is slotted into the motherboard and is 
part of the circuit. Ripping it out without 
powering down is like doing major 
surgery without anaesthetic. Yup, crash 
and bum, with possible permanent dam- 
age. A 4Mb version also exists, priced at 
£199,99.

Panasonic 


Quiet Printing 




We researched the colour printer market In great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga 's powerfu I 
graphic output, yet at an affordable price. 

We found the perfect printer in the Panasonic KX-P 21 80 + KX-P 2 1 23 quiet printers. 

We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer, you would probably need a quality word processing 
package to use with it. We found that too, in 'Word worth', yet at a retail price of £129.99 we thought that might be a little too 
expensive on top of your printer purchasel So together with Panasonic we decided to give a copy of Wordworth free with 
every Panasonic printer. How's that for added value?

£ 139 - 

The Rendaie range of Amiga Genlocks begins with the 8802. This is a Genlock, which, when 
attached to an Amiga computer and a suitable video system, will allow you to mix video and 
computer graphics, It offers all the functions that you need, such as: 

* RGB feed through, allowing for a preview monitor, 

* High quality output video, which in default mode provides video with overlaid computer graphics. 



£178- 

It can be supplied with a device which will allow you to fade between computer graphics and the 
video source, and also a mode control unit so that you can move between Amiga only, video only, 
background mode and keyhole modes t & 2. 

nvmikiE 

SUPER-8802 

£ 499 - 

The Rendaie Super-8802 is a development of the basic 8802 unit, it performs the same functions, 
but has the added capability of also working with Super-VHS signals. The unit will allow the user 
to cross fade between the Amiga and video signal. In addition, some basic wipe patterns are ; 
provided, and also a fade to black option. Mode control is also provided via hardware. 1 

NEW] 

RI4DALE 

8802 FMC Unit 1 

This is a brand new piece of kit which will improve the capabilities ol the popular Rendaie 8802 
Genlock. This unit allows you to cross fade between the Amiga and video signals, so that you can j 
gently fade computer titles in and out, Also, the ability to switch between the various modes 
offered by the 8802 is provided. The required mode Is selected by a push switch, giving smooth, 
flicker free transformations. 

The FMC unit does need to be soldered into the 8802, we can do this at our factory if required,

UPGRADE PATHS 


UPGRADES 


Rendaie Genlocks are designed to be flexible, and the ability of your Genlock to grow with your 
system was deemed to be of paramount importance in our design process. 


£45 


As a consequence, existing 8802 users can follow one of two upgrade paths. The fade and mode 
control unit (FMC unit) can be purchased independently, and fitted to your $802 genlock by our 
engineer. We would only require your unit for around two days. 


£400 


The other upgrade path is the move from a purely composite 8802 to the Super-8802, This can 
also be done simply, although we do have to perform the upgrade work at our factory. We would 
only require your unit for around two days,

f ev; S j 


|^H dutotion is never out of the news these days, and it's only 
L natural that parents have become more concerned than 
ever about the standard their children are attaining. At 
Euro press Software we hove responded to that concern 
by putting together a complete range of educational software to 
Complement children's education at school, in line with National 
Curriculum guidelines. 

Our Fun School range caters for children aged 3 to 1 1 years, 
covering a comprehensive range of topics from learning to 
recognise shapes and colours for the younger user to science 
questions and keyboard skills for the older child. Each subject 
complements what children are learning at school. 

In response to demand from teachers and parents we 
recently launched the Fun School Specials which concentrate 
on three important areas - Spelling, Moths and Creativity - 
where parents wanted more support. 


Our brand new ADI range is primarily used as a learning 
aid to prepare students for GCSE exams. ADI covers 
Maths, English and French for first to fourth year students, 
featuring a friendly extraterrestrial who provides some 
light relief from studying. Each subject has been 
extensively researched and adheres to the National 
Curriculum requirements. ADI is already being 
incorporated into some schools timetables, proving the 
benefit of such high quality educational software.

Workbench blues 


Help please, I .am relatively new Ip Amiga 
computers, but have an A5GD upgraded 
to a Plus with Workbench 2.0, 

I got the Virus Checker off October's 
Amigo Computing but can't seem to drag 
It into my startup-sequence. I get a sys- 
tem message: "Workbench is fuir. 
Perhaps I am doing something wrong - 
any ideas?. 


T M Dodd, Northallerton 

The simple answer is that your 
Workbench disk is full, so there's no 
room for Virus Checker on the disk. 
What you'll have to do is remove some 
less useful programs like Graphic Pump 
and CMD. 

If this doesn't work, remove the 
printer drivers you don't use from Ihe 
printers drawer and that should give 
you enough space. Then all you have to 
do is copy Virus Checker into the Ci: 
directory and add the line "Vims 
Checker" to your startup-sequence. 

NEh Make sure you are using a copy 
disk of Workbench when you do this! 

Sounding off 

Having recently purchased m A6M l was 
disappointed to find that my A600 would 
not produce sound on my Commodore 
108^ (not 10B4S) monitor. The monitor 
was fine on my C64 and the A6G0 
worked well on a borrowed protable TV. 

The 1084 has no 21 pin O-port, so I 
purchased at great expense from CPC a 

6 -pm linear to 23-pin D ring, This has 
giver me a picture but no sound. 

As a soldier in Germany I have Found 
German Commodore retailers 'less than 
helpful, but would like to thank Gordon

AMIGA COMPUTING 


ADVICE SERVICE 

Write to ACAS, Amiga Computing, Europa 
House, Adlington Park, Macclesfield SK10 4NP 

Save your saes - we can 't repfy personally 


Harwood Computers for putting me in 
contact with CPC. Is this an upgrade 
problem, or can you let me know where I 
can get a cable to do the job? 

5 Prowse, Germany 

We are afraid you've been sold the 
wrong cable. On the back of your 


monitor is a socket called a Start con- 
nector which takes care of both pic- 
ture and sound, 

What you need is a basic Amiga to 
Start cable - your best bet is to pick 
one up from Phoenix Mail Order 
(0532 11 1932) for about £!G plus 
p&p. 


i need help with the Zoom piogram Irom 
d Workstation menu which I use to speed 
up the mouse. 1 would like this to be acti- 
vated automatically on booting up, 

When I move the Zoom program to a 
convenient directory and call it up from 
Lhe startup program it crashes the boot 
sequence. 

I think it actually runs Zoom and then 
rtFuses to proceed out of Ihe end of it Is 
if possible to modify anything to achieve 
thiij bearing in mind that the Zoom pro- 
gram seems to be in a fundamental 
non-English type code and I am 
only a computer user, not a 
computer buff? 

A second problem rebates to an HP 
LaserJet III printer which I currently drive 
only from my Protext word processor wi th 
its own appropriate driver. 

F would like to have a suitable printer 
driver in the Amiga's drivers drawer so 
that I could drive the printer for other 
applications by setting the driver from 
there (the Laser|et driver supplied is too 
rudimentary). Do you know if a suitable 
driver is available to enable me 
to do this? 

D Price, Pontypaot 

You are right about your first prob- 
lem. When you call certain programs 
from your startup-sequence the pro™ 
gram runs and then does not return to 
the startup-sequence. 

What you have to do is teN your 
startup- sequence to run the program 
and then return to the next line after 
the pro-gram you have called. To do 
this put Zoom in your " , C^ directory 
and add the line:

Memory switching for the brave at heart 


I have an Amiga 500 fitted with a fatter Agnus and a 
512k RAM expansion and a fnend of mine had ihe sane 
setup. Then he wanted 1 Mb of chip RAM pnd sent off his 
Amiga to have it fitted 

Eut he was then stuck with the 1Mb configuration. 
This seemed a bit off to me, so I decided to do the con- 
version myseFF to enable me to switch between \ Mb chip 
RAM and 51 2k chip/fast RAM, 

Those readers who feel confident enough to do as l 
did should follow these three simple instructions after 
opening the Amiga's casing. A steady hand is essential: 

* locate J R2 next to the ROM chip and JP7A next to the 
internal expansion port. 

• At 1 P2 cut the link between tracks 2 and 3 and solder a 
wire to each track.. Take them to a 6 - pin toggle switch, 
making sure the wire from track 2 goes to the centre 
pin. 


# At (P7A, cut the link between tracks 5 and 6 and sol- 
der a wire to each of these tracks. Take these to the 
switch, making sure that the wire from track 5 goes to 
the centre pin on the opposite side of the switch to the 
track 2 wire. Also-, the track 6 wire must he opposite the 
track 3 wire (see diagram).

And there you have it - instant selection choice 
between 1Mb chip RAM and 512k chip/fast RAM 
configurations. All you need to do now is find a suitable 
place for your switch. This conversion will only work For 


Amigas fitted with the fatter Agnus chip and a suitable 
512k memory upgrade.

Thanks for sending this tip in. Do make sure that you 
always turn off your Amiga before flicking the switch 
and that the RAM expansion you use Fs chip-memory 
compatible, 

If you have any useful tips you consider worthy of 
printing then send them in and if we think there of 
use well consider printing them. Send your tips to 
David Pibnah, ACAS, Amiga Computing, Europa

This should run Zoom and then return 
to the startup-sequence to continue 
the boot sequence. 

Several PD houses have a new 
driver for the HP Laser jet HI printer, 
but if you have difficulty give HP a ring 
on 0344-369222 and they should be 
able to help you. 

Missing software 

With my Amiga Class of the '90s pack I 
got a Da tel Electronics Midi Master 
Interface with one Midi in port* three 
Midi Out and one Midi Thru without 
instructions and software. 

Do you know how to use it? If I am 
allowed to sell it l will do so for £12, so 
can you please print my address? Finally 
will the Amiga Action Replay cart MK III 
wort with 5Mb via a thru pert?. 

D Eyre, North Humberside 

We presume that you bought your 
Amiga new, and if that Is the cast you 
should have received some music soft- 
ware and instructions with it. 

The Midi Interface is a way of con- 
necting an Amiga to a musical instru- 
ment like a keyboard. It translates 
computer signals into signals that the 
musical instrument understands, so you 
end up with the computer playing the 
instrument. 

As for selling your kJt, you'll find a 
classified ads section at the back of this 
magazine in which you can advertise 
unwanted items. The first ten words 
are free. Fill in the coupon and send it 
in. 

As far as we know the Action Replay 
MK III cartridge requires extra mem- 
ory,. so check with Datel first before 
buying one. 


I have a 1,3 Amiga 500 mathEfboard 
version 6A holding a Fat Agnus 
8372A, a 512k memory upgrade 
(trapdoor), external disk drive and 
also an external ROM sharer on the 
expansion port fitted with Kickstart 
2.04. 

Why Is it that when using Kicks!? rt 
2.04 I am not able to access 1Mb of 
chip RAM? With the memory upgrade 
switched on I have 44l r 232 graphics 
memory and 360,176 other memory. 
With the upgrade switched off I have 
277,152 graphics memory and zero 
other memory, 

Is something wrong in the system,, 
or must l undertake major surgery on 
my computer? I know this is not a 
drastic problem, but it's annoying

PAL to NTSC 

if\ about Lwo months' time i J m relocating 
to Texas and am thinking about taking 
my Amiga 500 with me. Now the mains 
voltage in the Netherlands is about 220 
while the United States is on 115 volts. 

Will my European-bought Amiga still 
work in the United Stales, and do you 
have any useful addresses in the United 
States where I can buy a new power 
transformer to fit the 115 voltage over 
them? 

Finally, I must say I really enjoy read- 
ing your magazine every month, as I find 
it one of the best around for the Amiga. 
Thank you very much for your time, 

5 Abraas, Maastricht, Netherlands 

The main problem you are going to 
have is with the different screen for- 
mats in the States, if you have an 
Amiga with a fatter Agnus you’ll bo all 
right because it Is capable of displaying 
PAL or NTSC. Once you are over there 
you should have no problems picking 
up a suitable power supply from most 
Commodore dealers. 

You may have to invest in a new 
modulator if you wish to plug your 
Amiga Into a TV r hut you would proba- 
bly be better off buying an American 
monitor. 

memory 

knowing I have 1Mb RAM which I 
cannot fully access. 

R Hardy , Bad Lippspwge, Germany 

You cart only perform the chip 
memory upgrade on version 6A 
upwards motherboards with a fat 
Agnus fitted - which luckily you 
have - but you also need a memory 
upgrade which is chip memory 
compatible. 

Once you've sorted yourself out 
with a RAM expansion which is chip 
RAM compatible (if you have prob 
Jems finding one then contact 
Power Computing on 0234 &431B8) 
you will need to make a small alter- 
ation to your motherboard.

A piece of pie 

A while ago I bought a Pen P? I VI .4 wordprocessor. Et is perfect for my needs, giving 
high quality documents and graphics. However, one other Lfting I was hoping to be 
able to do on my new "toy" 1 was to create graphs and mathematical charts (Hoe 
graphs, bar charts, pie charts.), but to my huge disappointment this was not possi- 
ble. 

I have scanned every Arrifga Compute magazine from cover Ld cover, but am 
unable to find any software Lo suit my needs. I need somthing relatively cheap - PD_ 
shareware or cheapish commercial - that can create the diagrams I stated above 
simply by typing in the relevant statistics, 

1 am more than happy with Penpal’s documental and graphical capabilities. I also 
have a Citizen Swilt 24E colour printer and my computer is an A50Q with 1Mb of 
memory (I am hoping to upgrade to 2Mb in the distant future, money permitting!). 
E hope yau r ll be able to suggest something before my head explodes from reading 
so many PD lists! 

T Shorrard, Sussex 


This is a difficult one. Now if you had a PC the answer would have been simple. 
As Easy-As, which is a PD clone of Lotus 123 r the best spreadsheet available. 

However, here are two suggestions, first try a Shareware program from 17 
bit called Alpha Graph (con lad them on 0924 366982), Failing that you might 
like to take a look at Mini Office spreadsheet, database, wardprocessor and disk 
manager available through Furopress Software on 0625- 859333 


Business 

accounts 

I have owned a 500 Plus Amiga since 
lone and have found it a wonderFul 
machine except for one thing - I have 
tried now for 1 2 weeks tg put my simple 
business accounts on to a floppy disk 
and still had no luck. It is driving me 
crazy. 

1 have read and re-read the manual 
and followed the instructions step-by- 
step, still without success. 

Can you please supply me informa- 
tion as to how I can accomplish this sim- 
ple operation and advise me what book 
to buy? 

M Bunion, Nanis 

You haven't laid which accounts 
package you are using, but they alii 
work In a similar way. 

The answer to your problem proba- 
bly lies In you saving your information 
into the default path* that is the 
same directory as your accounts pack- 
age.. 

When you go to save your accounts 
you should see a window called 
"Drawer", Simply change this to 
"dfO:^, (drawer) being the name of 
your directory 

As For an Amiga book, you should 
take a look at Mustering Amiga 
Workbench, by Bruce Smith Books.

Cybernetix 

1 recently got Cybernetix off your 
CoverDisk and unfortunately it faib Lo 
run on my ASOO Plus. I've he?rd this 
is due to the game using fast mem- 
ory. I have an A500 Plus with no fast 
memory. 

Is there any way of making my 
Amiga more compatible with older 
software which was not designed For 
the Plus machine other than having 
to buy fast memory and a ROM 
switcher? 

Robert 5ote, 


We've had a few enquires about 
Cybernetix not working on the Plus 
machines. The problem is that this 
program was written in New 
Zealand and they don’t have 
the Plus machines there yet. 

As ■you've already said, one 
answer is to buy some fast memory 
but this only works with programs 
which specifically use fast memory. 

One other solution is to get hoEdl 
of a PD program cal fed Dograder. 
Apparently this program Is able to 
degrade the A50b Plus and the 
A1.3 600 into an old Amiga, which 
in thoery will make your machine 
more compatible with existing 
software. Degrader is available 
from most good PD libraries.

PD and Shareware 


W e've a wider selection of qual- 
ity, affordable software this 
month than possibly ever 
before. Who could argue with the range? 
From the Nutcracker Suite completely 
Amiga- ised to an involved Antarctic-based 
strategy/arcade game, the public domain 
can boast more than ever that it provides 
something for everyone. 

Some of these programs are shareware, 
which m>eans that should you find them 
useful, you should send a small, specified 
fee to the author. 

Do it - only by people being honest will 
shareware five on for the good of us all. 
Anyway, you usually get a manual, a better 
version of the program and news on 
updates as and when they happen, so ift 
worth It from an economic as well as a 
moral standpoint 


Nutcracker 

Suite 


17 Bit, 2238 A/B, by Hugh 
Gammon 



As tar as Romantic classical music gae^, 
Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite must be one 
of the most famous pieces of all time. 

All seven movements of the suite are 
included, and can be selected individually 
from an opening menu - a little like select- 
ing tracks from a CD. 

The instruments were created using 
Synth ia U and E-2FM- but it is with the 
instruments that this program's shortcom* 
ing is exposed. 

Classical music is obviously a much big- 
ger job to program than a pop or dance 
number - it is much more complex, the 
arrangement will almost invariably be more 


A huge variety of software is available that 
will cost you little or nothing. Phil Morse 
looks at this month's offerings from the 
Amiga public domain 


l 


j 


Involved, and it relies a lot more on subtle 
nuances and expertly composed changes 
in feel which mark out the true genius 
composers from the crowd. 

While Hugh has managed to quite suc- 
cessfully port the essence of the music to 
the Amiga, it does sound more like a 
Lemmings soundtrack than an emotion- 
moving masterpiece. 

However, as an exercise in computer 
music, this is good stuff indeed, It's well 
presented, with some nice touches (the 
mouse pointer turn* into a conductor who 
actual conducts while the music is playing) 
and will appeal to anyone who is interested 
in the actual mechanics of Amiga music 
programming.

Lyponov 

Space 

Generator vl .0 


17 Bit, 2237, by David Head 

Fractal generators really are old news 
nowadays, I had one on my ZX61 „ so that 


shows how long computer programmers 
have had an interest in the little random 
beasts. 

While the graphics and speed of genera- 
tion have both improved with computer 
hardware over the years, the basic formulae 
and patterns have remained pretty much 
the same. 

However, the Ly panov (who?) fractal 
generator claims, with some justification, to 
be different. To quote the programmer, it 
creates plots which "have a more organic 
feel than normal fractals". 

Quite what this means is only apparent 
when you see one of the Lypanov-ge Der- 
ated fractals - they are undeniably differ- 



ent, and taking into account the ovi 
we've witnessed with the other van 
much more attractive,. 

Once you've generated a fractal, 
can zoom in and out on it and impro\£ 
looks in a number of ways. Selecting 
Contour feature will embellish your pal 
with a myriad of colours, while Coh 
while not allowing you to define your 
colour palettes - will allow you to cl 
one of three different p re -programs 
ones. 

When you are happy with your dfa 
you can save your fractal out as an IFF 
Ly panov custom file, for loading into 
program or any paint package wh 
accepts IFFs [ie any worth having). 

The programme! has also include 
slideshow which contains a selection 
very different but equally impressive fr; 
generated using the system. 

If yauVe a penchant for this kino 
thing and are getting bored with the 
favourites, Lypanov could be right up 
street.

Skyflyer 2 

17 Bit, 2221 

Written with SEUCK (the Shoot- 'Em- Up 
Construction Kit), this game looks.,, well, 
similar to every other SEUCK game. This is 
not to put it down, just to say that there Is 
a little element of "you've seen one, 
you've seen them air about SEUCK 
#orts. 

Anyway, Skyflyer is a little like 
Thunderblade, but with (surprise, surprise) 
a permanent aerial view of the proceed- 
ings - oh, and yo u control a biplane, not a 
hdicopter r 

The idea is (sur- 
prise, surprise) to shoot 


Dreams 


everything that moves/shoots things at 
yau/gels In your way. The planes fly in 
diagonally bom both sides, while tanks 
will attempt to shoot you from the roads 
below. 

There are also power-up style bonuses 
which float around in a bubble-like fashion 
waiting for you to pick them up and add 
to your score. 

The graphics and movement are^ well, 
SEU-CK-like, with the scrolling a tad dodgy 
and the icons of a suspiciously familiar 
$ize r but the game itself is actually quite 
difficult and addictive - even if it fs ulti- 
mately a little out of date. 

Intrepid 

PD Soft, 2674. by Peter 
Gage 

This is a slickly presented arcade/st rategy 
game, in which you must guide your tank 
through the Antarctic to rescue a scientist 
who has befcn taken hostage by dastardly 
terrorists. 

On booting, the computer executes its 
"pre-drop procedures" (!) And you're off 
into the snowball- ridden wastes at the 
bottom of the world. What a lucky soul! 

The game is basically strategy with 
arcadey bits thrown in. There's a naviga- 
tion computer which displays the position 
of your tank with regard to the enemy,, 
the ammunition dumps (what your scien- 
tist was doing with those well prob 
ably never find out), fuel 
depots and so on. 

You will find: yourself

selecting the navigation computer quite 
regularly, because this is the part of your 
tank which you use to move yourself 
around, by a system of arrows and a grid 
which straddles your map. 

When you're ambushed by the enemy, 
you are presented with a bleak* snowy 
backdrop on which the enemy appear 
from behind rocks and the like to take 
shots at you, Arid it's not snowballs 
they're dropping, either. So you must rap 
them before they fry you, 

Control is via the mouse, and you sim- 
ply move the target to the enemy on the 
screen and press the button. Easy! 

Only they appear with alarming regu- 
larity, and you need some pretty deft 
mouse-to-mouse mat co-ordination to get 
the lot of them without them hitting you

The Pure Fantasies Slideshow { 1 7 


111

space based and futuristic pictures. 

I presume they've been 
k scanned and then retouched, 
but the end certainly justifies 
' rneans - The accompany- 

mg music fs spacious if a lit- 
tle disjointed. 

My only complaint is the artist's propensity 
to digitise scantily clad women - a cheapening 
quality, but one which fails lo distract from the 
disk's overall air of an exciting technological 
future. 

The next disk is the Shining 8 Slide Demo 
(17 Brf, 2220). Wonderful atmospheric music 
and a dog wearing shades (obviously had a 
long night) introduce this slideshow of seven 
picture, which range from magic spheres lo 






biplanes. 

One picture, 
called Presir has what I 
think is an Amiga disk or magazine in a 
press and rather squashed by all accounts. 
It's bizarre and comically coherent and is 
my favourite on a disk where all of the pic- 
tures are of a high standard. 

Nothing else really jumped out this 
month, but hopefully a. dedicated column 
will encourage you libraries to send In 
more slideshows, visual demos and graph 
ICS to me at the usual address.

Enter the mystic world of Norse mythology in tfagnarok R^gnarok is a rndepth strategy board game and appar 
entiy offers- a greater depth of gameplay and more visual appeal than chess. Adapted from the ancient Vikmg 
Game’, the two sades of good and evil must do battle to the death . Each srde has a different goal. Good have to 
guide Odin from his starting square in the 
centre of the board to one of the four corners 
whereas evil must prevent this from happen- 
ing. Each piece has different strengths and 
abilities restricting rt '& movement and power 
over other pieces. Ragnarofc can be played 
against a friend or you can play against one of 
the twelve computer controlled opponents. 

Ragnarok has been programmed by Fmagitet 
Design and should be reviewed rn this high 
quality magazine very soon, It wjN cost you 
09.99 and should be out either just before or 
just after Christmas. Don’t forget no norseing

fappa 

The king is grateful or your offer - so 
grateful in fact that he promptly presents 
you with a few magic pencils and various 
other pieces of brightly coloured stationery 
to assist you on your quest 

A tong-handlecf sword, a pocketful of 
grenades and the odd automatic weapon 
would have been nice, but hey - you got

Toyiand is your first port of call, and very 
mce it is too. Jack-in-thf boxes, aeroplanes, 
downs, and that's just the nasty elements, 

Things are moving around everywhere, 
and Doodle Bug can even get help from 
one or two of the nicer people In town 
who'll talk to him and give him advice. 

It's here where you realise that the magic 
pert-cits aren't quite as useless as they first 
appeared. Foe instance, when thrown, the 
blue pencil turns into an umbrella which will 
slow down your descent should you, say. 
fall off a doll's house or something. 

Other pencils wiN turn into balloons |to 
take you to higher places), potion bottles 
ffor temporary invincibility) and itopwarcnes 
(freezes the enemies for a few seconds). 

Don't despair if you find yourself in a 
tricky situation - Doodle Bug carries a rub- 
ber at all times ’which rather handily cfouhfes 
as a kind of smart bomb for instant disposal 
of hostile creatures. 

Other levels are in a similar vein - bright 


colours and cute creatures asunder

Fortress df Doom to name but, erm... 

What else then? Well, Doodle Bofl 
quite a nifty spin attack with which he 
do away with hrs adversaries, and 
loads of stuff to collect such as mone. 
and power-ups, all of which add a

Sen 


A sure sign of a misspent youth ss 
a good pinball player, in which 
case I think our resident 
H?nage deimquent/old man Da??a had a 
\T dhood SJmiFar to that of Oliver Twist.

- . -.t'f Biff wasn't born, as he is a genetic

Alas there rs no escaping the simulation 
bandwagon, and one must put up with 
such things. All right, I admit il it's very 
, jod. in fact as far as simulations go this is 
one ot the most realistic Jve seen.. I m more

On starting the game you have the 
hoice of four tables. They all act like the 
eal thing, and none is easier than the 
r^hers. 

Tour playing screen is the view you 
would normally have of a real table You 


can t see at! of it at once as you could in the 
older console-type pinball games, but this 
means you get a closer, dearer view of the 
part you are concerned with. 

The table scrolls with the ball when you 
knock it up the table with the flippers You 
might think that this ‘would be a bn conf us- 
ing to watch, but the scrolling is silk smooth. 

Graphically the game is fantas&c and an 
the illustrations on the bed of me machine 
are colourful. The Pairs movement is per- 
fectly smooth, even though on some of the 
tables it gets flung around at a mi of a race. 

I played first on cable two. 7 no theme 
here is rally driving and an unusual feature 
is extra flipper which involves a heir of a lot 
of skill to use it e^etbvety When using the 
other Flipper it was almost as though you 
were playing independently of the lower 
i<ib e - you rat'd get massive scores at the 
cop. 

Tfct me of ine other tables are a game 
show horror setting and theme park, all 
with the? Side quirks. A lot of the time you 
not only control the flippers but also small

very simple but very effective. 

\ think the only thing lacking is a multibaiJ 
sequence with two or more balls on the 
screen, but it’s understandable why they 
didn't do this as multiball scrolling would be 
a nightmare. 

To polish off their product 21st Century

you think of him. A bargain, Revive the war 
without any chance of getting blown up or 
shot at. 

Computer games - 1 love 'em, You can be 
transported to space one minute and then 
off ro the Middle Ages and then win the 
k war and strif be back home in time 
h for tea. 

There are two types of war 
game - the run around, shoot 
lots of soldiers and watch the 
blood fly everywhere type, like 
Frreforce, and the climb into a 
tank of plane and strategically win 
the war that way by looking at 
maps and deciding which tactics 
to use against the enemy type. 
Campaign Is of the latter 
kind ar>d is Dilfed on the box as 
the most comprehensive military 
simulation of warfare in World War 
II Wei l it could be true, but you'll just 
have to wait until the end of the 
review to find out. 

Basically Campaign is a pure 
strategy game, but it does have a cer- 
tain "arcade'' efement to it. Thfs so- 
called 'arcade' bit is where 
you take control of the 
tank platoons and 
choose any tank to

run around in blowing

Job-w^e, Campaign is very 
flexible. Indeed, if you want 
to be a lowly tank driver 
then that s up to you, bui 
you can take the position of 
a General or even take the 
top job as Field Marshall - 
or you can do 5ll three! 

As General, you control the fighting of an 
individual battle with tanks plus artillery and 
air support. As the Field Marshall, not only 
do you stay about 35 miles away from the 
battle supping tea and scoffing biscuit* with-

HpC: for me though, going wild in a nice big 
pnfc with a nice brg gun blowing away the 
mem/ for King and Country and shouting 
boo sucks" to the Hun. 

Iis much more exciting than sitting 
>.n nd a desk Foaking at maps, hot that's 
fnty a persona* opinion 
To be perfectly honest lm not a huge fen 
c proper strategy games, but l liked Cam- 
psgn For two reasons, One. it had a bit of 
icuon in it, unlike some other strategy 
..-hes 1 could mention, and two. it is so 
damn authentic. 

For starters, included in the package is 
re user guide which gives a historical back- 
pound to the war You also get two World 
pat II propaganda posters and postcards, 
plus a D-Day landings battle plan map - you 
M gel an authentic wartime newspaper 
repflnt 

You certainly feel more involved with the 
game than you would with just a couple o f 
and a flimsy manual Obviously a la* of 
irork has gone into Campaign in trying to 
it as real as possibfe This must have 
alien a lot of research ana also a lot of time. 

For instance, you get another manual 
with air the tanks, aircraft and sNpi in It 
utiith it gives you all sorts of information on 
each one. ranging from speed to weight to 
I he date it was first available As well as 
teng informative it also serves as the man 
ual protection. 

Everything js just » accurate and abso- 
L:eiy huge. For instance the playing area 
covers up to an amazing ten million square 
yometre 5 and features detailed towns, vil- 
lages. rivers and woodland 

You can take full command of up to 
iOOO vehicles of which there are over ISO 
feilcte types on over 20 historicalfy accurate 



maps. Locations of the maps range from 
the desert wastes of the Sahara to the deci- 
sive D-day landings. And if that isn't 
enough there is a map editor which allows 
you to modify the existing maps and create 
new ones of your own, $o the possibilities 
are endless 

In fact if you fancy it you can even swap

sides and take control of the German army 
Just think you could he a Hitler reincarnate. 
Guspt 

Right, back to the "dftKfe“ tank driving 
bit. if any of you have seen Pacific Islands, 
also by Empire, then you’ll realise by looking 
at the screenshots that the lank bit of the 
game looks very similar. 

Well, yes it is, but that's not a bad thing is 
it because Pacific Islands was pnefty good as 
weN The actual driving of the tank is really 
easy and simply involves nine keys of the 
keyboard After a few plays of the game it 
becomes second nature. Oh and I can rec- 
ommend biowing up some houses in the 
town, just for laugh 

So is Campaign going to be as victorious 
as our good old British Tommies- were, or 
will it end up growing a smalt moustache 
*nd shooting itself in a small bunker in 
Berlin? 

Weil overall this js a really good game, 



but fm afraid a lot of people tend to ignore 
this type of thing. They probably think that 
strategy is for incredibly boring people, but 
it’s not true - chat's just stereotyping strat- 
egy fans. 

Right, if people get over their strategy 
fears then I think that Campaign could 
become a good seller and could be up ihe 
chants before you know it. 

The only niggle that I have is that after a 
few hours play it tended to get ^ bit boring, 
- no, not boring exactly, but F started losing 
interest. 

Other than that I can t really complain - 
top marks go to the actual presentation of 
the game, plus I forgot to mention the excel- 
lent introduction disk that comes with it. It 
features some great graphics and some sam- 
pled speech and is a good, err, introduction 
to the game 

So, if you feel lake you want to go and 
bash the Bosh and defeat the evil tyrant 
Hitter, Campaign could well be the game for 
you. Tank you and goodnight

C <t$[ your rntncfs way tack to April's 
issue of Gamer and you might 
remember ShadowJands, a brilfianl 
adventuring rote playing game reviewed by 
yours truly. I gave it 94per cent and a 
Gamer Gold, 

Well hold do to your bits and pieces, 
because here for your enjoyment and enter- 
tainment ij Shadow worlds by kri satis 
It’s a sort of a sequel - I say 'sort or 
because it doesn't fallow the storyline from 
the original, although it does use tf*e same 
game routines. Saving grace ii (bat it has dif- 
ferent graphics because it's sec in space 
Spate, the final frontier and afl that busi- 
ness. but in Shadow Worlds things have 
changed. There is no need for Captain Kirk 
to run around chasing Klingons or far fjuke 
Skywalker to battle with the Empire, 
because now there is universal peace 
Yep, aliens hold quiet and pleasant coffee 
mornings and every man, womaa chiid and 
squidgy bfab are happy in the knowledge 
that they are united as one There's » ’ bur 
coming up very soon. 

Peace, love and happiness crusades 
across the universe, but jthere it iSi| mysteri- 
ous farces are at wort in the outer reaches 
of the galaxy. 

Someone in the government decided to 
open himself a n.ce littfe weapons develop- 
ment centre. Everything was quiet, in fact a 
littfe too quiet - last week ail communication 
with the centre dropped off and the crew 
working there have disappeared. 

This event is definitely hot good news for 
the authorities who are trying to keep the 
peace, and a centre full of unguarded 
weapons is a bit like giving a camera to 
Madonna and asking her to take pictures of 
the landscape., 

So they decide to send in an expendable 
task farce. That's you and four companions. 
They are a bit of an odd bunch, ranging 
from dribbling psychotic serial killers to 
beautiful ‘wouldn't hurt a fry' clairvoyants. 

There you have it. Shadow Worlds story 
all told. But what about the actual game? 
You control your four warriors using the 
mouse At the bottom of the screen 
are graphics of youf four brave warrior 
and a icon of a figure 

This is used to control the movement and 
actions of your men/Women. Clicking on the 
legs means you can move either an individ- 
ual cnaracter or all of them at once 
Clicking on arms allows you to pick up 
and drop objects and also manipulate

Talk about leaving people In the dark. 


ohjects white cricking on the head allows 
you to look at objects and enemies and also 
read the computer monitors which are liber- 
ally dotted about the place, 

Your view of the playing area is at a 
funny angle, but works well. You actually 
look dawn and across at your warriors, 
which enables you to see everything 
around them. 

What I’ve forgotten to mention is the 
light No, I've not turned into a American 
evangelist, I'm talking about light as in torch 



Ah, letT throw * bit of light on the subject.

for instance, the light on your helmet

move your man It is powered by batteries 
and as they aren't Durat-dls they only last

As your batteries run out the hefmet light 
gets dimmer, which makes the game that lit- 
tle bit more interesting You also have to use 
the light to solve puzzles and problems 
along the way.

impressron and ask Hots of questions and 
queiy the quality of Shadow Worlds. H H 
any good? Is it let down cy bad playabirity? 
is it Fun to play? Does it whiff of stale 
cheese? 

The answer^ would be yes, no, yes and 
definitely not. Shadowortds is more or less a 
director's ait of Shadow-lands, Tiny bits and 
bobs have been added, and it does vary

ot only offering we've had 
this month that is having an 
identity crisis. This one thinks it's 
?n arcade run jure p-and -shoot game, but ‘i> 
iie does it know that it s really a strategy spe 
ciality that will have you tearing your half 
out with startling regularity. 

For those you who don't know what a 
Satire Team is, I shall explain. It is one of the 
formations that the SAS use to diffuse many 
political flash points, diffuse meaning killing 
everyone who looks a bit threatening. 

The team is a group of four crack com- 
mandos who have at their disposal 3 vast 
array of armaments - guns, bazookas and 
machine guns that look like they belong on 
the top of a tank. 

AH the gear's there, hut what about the 
game? Well, all kitted out you have to 
parachute your men into the action zone. 

That's simple enough, you just choose 
where they are going to iand and off you 
go. You view the playing area at a 45 
degree angle with quite a high perspective 
similar to Shadow Lands or Space Crusade 

After - you lave chosen the four to carry 
out the mission you have to equip them. 
This is where the strategy kicks in. Vou must 
choose weapons that aren't going to slow 
your men down too much but still provide 
enough firepower to do the job. The job 
usually being to turn lots of foreigners into 
sieves. 

As l sard before you have a pretty awe- 
some weapons package, everything bom CS 
gas and stun grenades to pistols and 
machine guns of all shape and size. 

Each of the characters you control has a 
certain amount of points which allow him to 
move and do anything he wants to do, 
which is shoot people. 

This action points setup is one of the few 



Klrfc la Scotty, beam me up 

things i disliked about the game - it's a 
good iden which doesn't work very well in 
practice. For example, if you were to walk 
five paces m a northerly direction it would 
cost you five action points. 

Fair enough, but sometimes just turning 
round can cost you several points, so once 
you've ,ust turned on the spot to shoot 
somebody you might not have enough 
points left to shoot them. I don't like this 
because it takes away a littfe or the arcade 
action. 

But rf that's not what you're playing the 
game for then fair enough - it takes a more 
strategic mind to uses your points more 
carefully 

Along the bottom of 
the screen are icons 
which depict the 
actions that your char- 
acter can carry out such 
as pick up. drop, 
throw, and you have a 
graphical representa- 
tion of each of the men 
which shows the state 
of their health. 

There are other 
things to keep an eye 
on, for instance if one 
of your compass points 


Thii tells y»U wh»l your 
enemicJ art doing. 
Thafrt getting Idol molt 
ot the lime 


goes blue Ji means that the 
character you are control- 
ling has heard something 
in that direction. 

you move each of your 
characters in turn, I heir 
action points depend on 
how healthy they are and 
how weighed down with 
equipment - so make sure you don t have 
them carrying five machine guru at once as 
I did. 

There are five scenarios - an embassy 
siege, a hostage situation on a boat, a 
ground hostage situation and two other 
search and destroy missions Some of them 
wili be marksmen and some of them will be 
totally bogeyed like me, 

Sabre team is one of the best arcade/strat- 
egy crossovers I've seen, infinitely playable 


and great fun if a little politically incorrect.

Right: Dinosaur steak*, 
dinosaur steaks - it i all Wt 
ever have. What about same 
chicken or a rue* veggy 
bugger? 



J [n the few short months during 
which it has been my humble privi- 
lege to Serve the mighty Gamer, 
barely a couple of days have gone 
by without some desperate souJ dragging 
him or herself over to the damp and rancid 
corner in which my Victorian sthooldesk 
nesdei lopsided ly, and asking - imploring - 
open mouthed and eyes agog, as to 
whether Humans had yet arrived. 

I'm not a sick man by any stretch of the 
imagination |our survey disagrees - Ed) but I 
have to admit to feeling a dark satisfaction 
at the look of anguish and emptiness that 
sank deep into their faces as I pressed my 
lips together and glumly shook my head 
Frankly. I couldn't understand why these 
ptjopfe were getting their undergarments in 
such a twist - we've got literally cupboards 
full of games to while away those dull 
lunchtimes. And Friday afternoons And 
Monday mornings 

Then I saw a demo version and the 
scales were lifted from my eyes: I became 
one of those sad people, carrying out my 
duties with a heavy heart and tortured soui 
- knowing that my life would be incomplete 
until the day of arrival. er„. arrived. 

That day is now here, so with nerve ends 
a-tmgling and eyes lifted gratefully to the 
heavens, tec ui wrthout further ado boot up 
our collective Amiga and see if it's all been 
worth the wait. 

Humans is an BO level puJiiy platform 
affair along the fines Of - dare I say it - Lem- 
mings. You control a small tribe of some of 
the very first human Inhabitants on our 
planet, and the idea rs very simple - you 
have to evolve. 

Easy enough to do when you have a 
good few million years to spare - simply 
exist and produce a few babies and the job s 
a good 'un, but it's a bit more tricky than 
that when you work all day and have to do 
Che evolving ar night on a Computer- 
Beginning with just a few paltry pot-bel- 




Longer in production than they were in evolution - finally...

Ho open air hath! In Ihdse day*, bul a dip in tilt iAVA pool may prow stimulating 


the idea r reel 

Once you are in possession of any 
wiFI stay with you throughout the 
game: your collection of discoveries 
grow as you progress - each one is 
to solve the levels you reach after 1indtf0 
Geddit? 

You will begrn the game with oni> 
humans in your tribe. The sprites ther 
are very small hut brilliantly detailed 
pot bellies, flyaway hairstyles, a big 
and a great expression or perpetual s< 

Obviously only one human at once 
be controlled, requiring much toggNng 
the cursor keys in order to shift all the 
chaps to their destina tion This can be 1 
□f a pain, but is offset by the muftidirecE 
scrofling as different humans are locate : 
screen. 

More tribe members can be added by 
cuing fellow cave dwellers who r. 


lied mofonic cavemen, you must help them 
to complete certain tasks before moving on 
to the nest level 

Many of the tasks simply involve moving 
your tribe to a different section of Ehe 
screen. Sound easy? Don't you believe it - 
remember, this, is 20 trillion or so SC and 
there isn't exactly a lot of help available rn 
the form of implements and the like. 

You see, it's ail very wet! if one happens 
to be, say, that Super Mario chap; any prob- 
lems he comes across can usuafly be solved 
by finding a magic laser gun or some such 
nonrense, but the time in which Humans is 
ret is just a rittle bit before laser guns and 
hoverbfkes were invented. 

Puzzles are solved by using whatever you 
happen to "discover"'. For example, the first 
discovery you 3re likely Lo make will be a 
spear. This is very handy indeed for stabbing 
things, hut could it have more uses do you 
chink? Well you IF have to find out - thacs

tittle more than dinosaur steak for tea - 
something a little more tender, if you're 
getting my drift 

Speaking of dinosaurs, keep your eyes 
open for any you might encounter - it's 
worth sacrificing one of your tribe mem- 
bers just to hear the hilarious gobbing 
sounds it makes as he is devoured piece 
by piece. 

Looks like it's time to Sum things up 
then: lets talk about the graphics first - 
they're brilliant One thing I haven't men- 
tioned so far is that the game js spread not 
only over 80 screens but also rn srx differ- 
ent scenarios - cave, deleft, summer, win- 
ter, forest and swamp, in which the detain 
are brilliant. 

As it alf this wasn't enough, whenever 
your trite completes a particularly impor- 
tant task you are rewarded with a funny 
little anrmated sequence. The onfy draw- 
back to thrs is that it involves a lot of disk- 
swapping: best idea Is to see these a cou- 
ple of times and then turn the animation 
off. (Another little option from your kindfy 
chums at Mirage]. 

You are given the choice of music or 
FX The music comes in the form of 
numerous /aunty/joUy tunes that I think 
make the game more fun. All rhe FX are 
clear and funny r but a good few more 
would have been very welcome. 

As for the game itself, ( can't say 
enough about it The humour, easiness to 
play and progressive difficulty of the puz- 
zles should appeal to Fans of just about 
every genre - even the strategists among 
you who may be happy for a welcome 
break from the norm. 

Buy it soon, and If you re not happy 
send me a cyanide Man Bar through the

another body of a ravaged child is polled from

Angry defiant women converge on news

kind of person would do this... and why? The 
camera pans around to reveal the remains of 
an army barracks an the Ulster border that still 
smoulders as the dead and wounded are

unfashionable state of the USA 
mourn the relatives and friends lost

get on with the task of producing murderous

You will be informed at the outset by the 
excellent sampled speech that the evrl Mitten,

Well, that doesn't bother you much - after

brainless hardeaSe should, hanging casually off 
the bottom of a chopper and chewing a match 
while tattcomg yourself with a rusty spoon, 
Once behind enemy lines you are alone 
with only the aforementioned boomerang to 
ward off hideous death by a hundred various 
methods. It's actually quite a good weapon -

race than 
dirty books from 
a library. 

Although quite weedy to 
begin with, plenty of power- 
ups are scattered around the 
levels that give it extra strength, 
speed, length of travef etc. 

Beginning in the for^i .after 
dropping From the chopper, 
your assassin £ met by gunn- 
ing nasties who seem a little 
confused as to where the trig* 
ger on their weapon is. After 
approaching angrily and look- 
ing just about ready to use your 
leg as a toothpick they seem to 
lose all enthusiasm For their task 
and proceed to prod you 
meefcty with the barrel of their 
guns. 

Its a different story with the 
dogs though - (hey just won't 
let go and are absolutely deter- 
mined tn make your trouser leg ' 
their own The sounds are de^d 
realistic too- toud harks and 
nasty Flesh- wrenching noises 
(hat made me want to go and 
hide behind my mum like I 
used to do when I saw a dog 
down our street. 

Mow that I'm on the subject — 

I must say that all the sound effects are good, 
as indeed are the graphres - big bold-as-you 
like sprites, on colourful and detailed parallax 
backgrounds. The end of level Posses are 
awesome, using some of the best graphics 
you're likely to $-ee in this type of game 
Assassin-dude is a pretty impressive guy

thing ihat sticks to walls realty well 

As welt the crusty boomerang, you can coi- 
lect Mega Weapon power-ups throughoul 
the whole game which *dlow you to wipe out 
hordes of gits at one go. 

Each leve^ is sec progressively Further into 
Midan's lair, until you eventually find yourself 
in the horrible labyrinth. People to watch out 
for in particular are the doctor who just 
wants to give you a little prick the skeleton 
geezer and probabty the last working mmer 
in Britain, 

You are probably aware by now that 
Assassin is Far from an original concept in 
gaming; however, with top notch graphics, 
nice FX, difficulty settings and a choice of how 
many lives to begin with. It's an extremely 
appealing product nevertheless and should 
make fans of arcadey adventure-style shooty- 
uppies very happy For a good while.

ave you noticed jusl how many

knocking about noways? in 
*se you haven't I'll tell you - blooming 
* thats how many, and a happy tact is 
fiat the quality seems to be getting better 
and better. 

Actually,, if you're anything like me then 
t*S isn’t always good news, It's veiy easy to 
which product to buy when there's 
tniy a couple of decent choices on the mar* 
but take a look through the rest of 
Gamer - there isn't a bad mark to be seen. 

If I were a punter [to use a technics? 
.-ml I'd probably spend hours dithering 
yju which game looked that little bit better 
and then end up buying two or three* thus 
scuppering my Friday night beer feast 
because all my money was In the till at the 
■ ?mpo shop. Am I waffling? I trunk l proba- 
cy am. Let's get down to business. 

Coktel Vision - the team behind Ween - 
have a slightly chequered past if previous 
3dmer reviews are anything to go by [and 
Of course. Gamer reviews are the ONLY 
r^ng ro go- by, as you all fcnowf, 

GobNirns was an excellent interactive pu 2 - 
r»e-type thing, and we eagerly await the 
sequel which you should see next month, 
fhdr most recent offering Fascination* how- 
* • er, wasn't quite as well receftfl, to say 
the least. Since I have seen very^irtie of

opened up the box and inserted 'rirsk 1 into

On dorng this I was met almost immedi- 
ately by a funny looking old man with a 
heard who, it transpired, was Okrham the 
master sorcerer, and great-grandfather of 
Ween, the character you pfriy, Wow it was 
pretty obvious that this guy was a bit agj^ 
tated about something, as he began to 
explflm... 

Ten years ago Okrham was saddened by 
the change in his understudy Kraal, an 
excerrent sorcerer who had a big future 
ahead of him - Paul Danrels had been in 
touch and everything - but he began to 
realise that far greater power awaited him 
on the dark side of magic, 

Eventually Okrham was forced to banish 
him from the kingdom of the 
Blue Rocks, which is where 
the acbon takes place, to 
whatever strange place 
is reserved for such 
spooky people. Milton 
Keynes probably, 





Hhhht what in ttename 
Beb Hairvtrt is Itatr 


Anyway, the 
boot's on the 
other foot now 
Okrham ps 



very old and his magic is fading This 
wouldn't be a problem usually, and he'd be 
happy in gracefully retire! trouble Is, he 
knows land don't ask me howl that Kraal is 
planning to return to the Blue Rocks on the 
day of the erripse to fulfill his ambition of 
ruling the kingdom from whence he was 
banished 

Since Okrham's powers are weak he wall 
be unable to defend the Blue flocks from 
Kraal's evil r so surprise surprise., it's up to 
you. as Ween. to do the decent thing 
The eclipse is only three days away and 
the one hope you have of defeating Kraal 
ties in the power of the Revuss, or magical 
hourglass. According to some prophecy or 
other, all evil wild be banished from the B^ue 
flocks only when the Revuss is furnished 
with three grams of sand 
To manage this you II have to overcome 
three major obstacles, bang rewarded 
with a smgie grain of sand for every 
success, luckily and somewhat pre* 
dirtably, the Revuss Jies deep in 
a hidden temple* 
the entrance to 
which can be 
found in 
Okrham's 



house. Its a pojnt-and-cfick, pick-'em-up^nd- 
use-'em adventure, viewed from the eyes of 
Ween, or you. Several strange inhabitants 
of the Blue Rocks will show their faces from 
time to time to either help or hrnder you. 

Most helpful of these is Urm the frutbat, 
who wifi perfrom certain tasks for you rn 
return far a snack. Petroy is a friend of 
Okrham's and frequently communicates lefe- 
pa thickly, deciphering ancient text and 
other such things you might expect of a 
wrse old man with psychic powers 

There are certainty plenty of purges and 
obstacles in Ween - not all of them iogical - 
and the screens are detailed enough, it's 
true. Unfortunately the colours are very 
monotonous and in certain instances you 
could be forgiven for believing that you 
were using a monochrome monitor. 

Sound is in the fonm of a very forbidding. 
Omen-like tune that f think enhances the 
game by providing an atmosphere which 
the graphics lack. There appears to be a fair 
brt of depth to Ween, and despite my gripes 
I enjoyed playing it very much. 

As I mentioned at the start* there are 
oodles of RPGs on the market and although 
Ween is not a poor relation by any means, it 
doesn't exactly stand head and shoulders 
above the rest either. 

pr you're an adventurer with a cupboard 
full of RPGs then Ween rs worth a try 
because if s a good adventure - but those 
looking for their first game in this genre 
could very well be dissapointed by the way 
in which Ween is presented. 

Unfair perhaps, but a fact of rife.

ello, good evening and wel- 
come to circled Introductions, 
p^n one. Are you ready? Then 

I II begin,,, / 

Once upon a time far r far away in EFG 
kind, there erased the kingdom of Kyrandia - 
a green and pleasant place fulf of beautify! 
trees and flowers, and inhabited by happy 
people who loved each other and were 
always doing some good deed or 
other Creeps . 

The ruler of this land was Kkig WiFlianx a 
nobfe and just man who cared For his people 
and was respected by them. 

Kyrandia derived res beauty from the 
Kyragem, a powerful gemstone whose mor- 
tal spell held sway over the territory it pro- 
tected. White the magic of the Kyragem pre- 
vailed, no harm could come io Kyrandia, 

Right, that's the SFCkly but over with, so 
where did it all go wrung |rt had Co do really 
didn't \i? 

During his reign, William had cause to 
order the imprisonment of Malcolm, the evil 
jester, for murdering the parents of Brandon 
fthats you]. 

Now I m sure you've guessed the next bit 
but PH tefl you anyway just in case - Malcolm 
has escaped incarceration and stolen the 
Kyragem, placing Kyrandia under an evil spell 
whereby the beauty has been replaced by a 
withered, desolate and barren landscape 

On a visit to his Grandad KaflaK who just 
happens to live in a tree. Brandon arrives 
only to find that to hrs horror Kaflak wifi today 
he even less interesting company than old 
mean usually are, due largely to the Fact chat

A dark shape emerges from 
the clouds and all conversation 
rn the hangar ceases as the 
static front the loudspeakers 
threatens momentarily to 
drown out the roar of the

'Bandits approaching? Ban-

Coo, Jet's find out more. 
Reach for the Skies is a flight 
sim based around the jerry 
shooting action of the Battfe of 
Britain. Designed and written 
by flight sim supremo Rod 
Hyde, Reach promises to be a 


massive hit with alf fans of the 
genre. 

A big plus as far as im con- 
cerned is the ease with which 
you can enter the whole affair. 
Boot it up and simply choose to 
fly as a good old boy of the RAF 
(silly callsigns optional], or as a 
Luftwaffe nasty intent on kick- 
ing some British bottom and 
faced with the not inconsider- 


able task of altering the whofe 
outcome of the war. 

At the time of writing, the 
sound and explosions are still a 
trifle weedy, and the control's 


just a bit wobbly, but Rod 
assures us /and we believe him 
because he s got an honest face] 
that these will be tweaked and 
beefed up on the finished ver- 
sion. 

As a simulation it's just about 
as accurate as they come - 
there s a real feeling of speed 
even on a standard machine, 
and the added smoothness on 
an accelerated model is brilliant. 
For the real sky hogs among 
you, even greater speed can be 
achieved by sacrificing a little 
detail. 

The Gamer night sim dept 
assure us that the external 
scrolling is top notch clobber, 
and that the options and 
touches, such as shooting bits 
off the enemy planes, bode well 
for one of the best flight sims 
for yonks,

as you can never find the TV page in 
your dad y newspaper - it had to hap- 
pen. 

We ve eaten their burgers, we ve 
been patronised by their bored, 
spotty teenage staff, and weve writ 
ten letters to their complaints depart- 
ment And now, God help ui all... we 
can play the computer game. 

if you haven't heard of McDonalds 
then you're dead- I'd lay odds that 
there's not one person reading this 
review who hasn t at one time or 
another sampled the delights offered 
by these emporia of healthy eating. 
There wifi be very few parents who 
haven t been dragged down the high 
street by their screaming offspring 
who genuinely believe that their 
world will come to an end without 
the intervention of a Ronald McDon- 
ald Happy Meal. 

Get your wallets out mums and 
dads - this one s for the Suds, Virgin 
tell me the game is aimed at pre-high 
school bids aged between about five 
and ten ffhe ones who are old 
enough to know what they want but 
still young and shameless enough to 
damn well cry their heads off until 
they get it). 

ft's a platformer as you d expect, 
with the intrepid gamester taking the 
part of Mick or Mack, two of Ronald's 
young chummies. 

The Ham burglar - h e* the fat one 
with the stripy sweater on the adverts 
- has run off with Ronalds magic bag* 
Ronald has really only got himself to 
blame however, since he was showing 
off with said bag at one of the many 
picnics such an ambassador as he 
must attend: 

Although not mentioned in the 
story, we in the Gamer office believe 
the importance of the bag lies in it's 
power to transform a dead dog i 
tongue into a 100 per cent ham- 




Erin,... rtSW he is an a blftCH. The 
block is. ill the sky. Yes 


burger in a sesame seed bun". Out 
don't quote ui on that- 

Ronald i got a heavy schedule, so 
he enlists the help of daring duo Mick 
and Mack in his quest to recapture his 
pilfered saKhef, insisting for no obvi- 
ous reason that they gather all the 
puzzle cards he so carelessly scattered 
around the various levels as they go, 
The levels then - there are seven in 
all, each watched over by a different 
one of Ronald s bizarre friends, and 
each containing about half a dozen 
sub revels, making around 40 in total, 
plus the odd bonus level here and 
there. 

The idea is to avoid the cute little 
nasties and generally bounce and 
jump your way to the end of the 
level, your pockets bulging with the 
all-important puzzle cards. 

There's a theme to each one too - 
for example Birdies Treehouse is, as 
one might imagine, set up in the 
trees, with clouds and 5 other sky (ike 
objects providing added obstacles. 

Other goodies that need col reeling 
are the |injfamous golden arches, 
McDonalds' trademark - these sus- 
pend in mid-air and if memory serves 
me correctly provide bonus points at 
the end of the level, 

A nice touch is the way in which 
Mick - or is it Mack? - can run upside 
down on certain platforms as long 


and the pockets of their dads - is r 
fts versatility. 

For starter* there is a two pi: 
option, whereby Mick and Mac ft c 
ate not in a competitive way, but jo 
forces to foil the evil Hamburg 
together jaaahh). 

At the beginning of the first le* 
a simplified map shows the vant 
levels within Ronald's tlubho 
Using the joystick you can guide y 
geezer to whichever level you wan: 
tackle first. 

Once the first main level has k 
completed, you are given the cht 
again with level two. 

But that's not all - oh no. Wh* 
you are on a subsequent level, r 
only are you given the choice 
attempting any suHevel therein (r 
read this carefully because if get: 
bit muddledl but can travel bar 
using the map r through any of 
levels you have already completed. 

So for example when on the 
level, you can choose between abc 
40 places as to where you want to c 
Well l think it i good p anyway. 

Now be warned - don't buy i

Cheetah 125+ 

I remember when this joystick came 
out. At t hat time ! still owned a Spec- 
trum and the Quick Shot II was the 
best, even if it was as brittle as an ici- 
cle. And what a winner it is - every- 
thing a classic should be, boring, 
unadventurous and above all reliable. 
Yes it won't tall to bits even if I play 
decathlon on it. 

The Cheetah 1 25+ is nothing spec- 
tacular. with bog standard ergonomic 
grip and the usual Tire buttons. Like 
all today's kit it uses micro switches 
instead of the old terminal switches, 
which rn all honesty were usually 
knackered in about three days, 

It performs admirably when used 
on racing games and the like because 
it is not too sloppy - it was inva> uabie 
on Stunt Car Racer when Biff insisted 


on beating me. The major down 
point is its stiffness, ft isn't so fesi and 
you don’t get that satisfying click 
sound when you move it, 

The auto fire as suitably placed 
between the front two fine buttons - 
unlike a lot of the competitors who 
try to put them in the most awkward 
place possible - and there's no dan- 
ger of you flicking it on by accident

Crystal Turbo Clear - Powerplay 

Hiis joystick made by Powerpiay is similar fn style and feef to ttw 
Cruiser and the lipstick, although the shaft on tins joystick is com- 
pletely different to the ones mentioned previously. 

it is In fact moulded to fit your hand better than other joysticks 
and it gives you quite a firm grip which is very handy if youte 
playing a driving game like Lotus Turbo Challenge 111 The unique 
feature on this stick is chat it is completely clear, so that means you 
can actually see how a joystick works, how very interesting - ,notl 






Cheetah Mach I 

Another early Cheetah joystick, this 
one came out a little later than the 
1 2S+, but in my opinion the 125+ had 
a far superior design. 

it's biggest let-down is the 
ergonomic grip, which is slightly less 
detailed than usual and the shaft team 
forward at a 20 degree angle which 
feels comfortable at first but gives you 
wrist ache in the long term. 

Biff and I gave it a good seeing to 
on Cybernet!* when it proved very 
responsive, but it was a Tittle too light 
on car driving games - you couldn't 
get it to hofd nice and steady on the 
bends.

My only real beef is with the tire 
buttons. They are so heavy you 
have to exert a good amount of 
pressure to move them - the last 
thing you need when playing Pro- 
ject X unfess you want your finger 
to fell off very quickly. 

This fs not the joystick I would

Competition Pro - 
Powerplay 

Ahh, it's my old. friencT the Competition Pro - 1 
remember the d<tys when 1 used one to play 
Spectrum games with it it's [hat old. In fact 
my little brother still uses it for playing Kick Off 
2, \t is a pretty simple device, for rnstance it 
hasn't even gor an Eiuto-hre, so you can't 
cheat on shoot- ’em ups. 

The latest Competitfon Pros now have 
muen^itttres, which make the joystick twice as 
good as it was. It is very similar to Che Zipstick, 
but tends to fit rnto your hands rather better 
You wont attract members of the opposite 
sex with this particular joystick due to its 
rather boring black and red colours, but you 
can get luminous green and pink versions. 


While I'm on the subject of colour, I personally 
would like to- see some other joysocks bright- 
ened up - most of them are either very drab 
or boringly black. 

Verdict? The Competition Pro is a classic 
joystick and a lot of games players would not 
swap it for anything.

Intuition 


B efore we begin, rhere ire a few com- 
ments on Intuition programming that 
should be kept in mind. Intuition, the 
Amiga's Graphic User Interface, consists oi a collec- 
tion of routines which reside in ROM, These rou- 
tines are used to create the typical Amiga windows, 
menus, gadgets and so on that give the Amiga its 
distinctive look and feel. 

They are available to anyone, provided their lan- 
guage can access therm. Because oJ the Amiga's 
design and history, it is assumed most program- 
mers will be using C or assembler, but Intuition can 
be just as easily be accessed from Basie, Pascal, 
Modula and soon. 

We ought to make it dear though, that just 
about all good documentation on the workings ot 
Intuition is described wflh examples in C. This 
means that if you want to understand them you 
must have at least a reading knowledge of C. 

On the other hand' if you are planning to do 
any Amiga programming at all, it certainly won't 
hurt you to understand the basics of C. 

A good read 

The best book on Intuition is probably the 
ROM Kernel Manual (Libraries), which now 
covers Workbench 2.0. There are other good 
books too r but they probably do not cover 
Workbench 2-0 yet, so check what you buy! 

We should also mention Amiga C Encyclopaedia 
by Anders Rjerin of the Amiga C Club. The first 
four disks of this excellent PD 1 2-disk set have a 
very good explanation of Intuition. System struc- 
ture browsing utilities like S Browser, Xoper, and 
ARTM will also be very useful, and can be obtained 
from PD libraries. 

However, back to our subject, which is pro- 
gramming Intuition from ARexx. There are certain 
distmet advantages to this. Firstly, it is much easier 
to do interactive work, and make changes last, 
since there is no need to compile, assembly fink 
and so on. There ire also far fewer initialisations to 
be made, and hence less code to confuse things. 

The library we are going to use is Ronnie Kelly's 
ARlG.library, which, despite its name, is actually 


The ARexx Library 

Calling all ARexx programmers . . . 

If you've recently written an ARexx 
masterpiece and want the world to 
know about it, send it in to AC. 
Continuing to support ARexx is a high 
priority and as a result wc are opening 
the AC ARexx Library. 

This new source of ARexx software 
will be redistributed free of charge on 
the AC CoverOisk every month. 

If you want to play your part in the 
ARexx explosion, send your scripts and 
additional programs to: AC ARexx 
Library, Amiga Computing, Europe 
Mouse, Adiington Park , Macclesfield, 
SKI 0 4NP 


Alex Gian shows how to 
design attractive and 
practical front-ends for 
our ARexx applications 

quite good. APIG stands fpr ARexx Programmer 
Intuition and Graphics library, and this ts exactly 
whit this library does - it makes most intuition and 
Graphics calls (as well as some of the Exec lilt func- 
tions) directly accessible from within ARexx, 

ThE version of AJPIG used is 1 J and is available 
on Fish disk 55 9, with many excellent examples, 
although a copy should be on the CoverOisk 
Alternatively an updated version (33) is available 
on Fish disk 634. i have found APIGJibrary, along 
with ragen, library, to be quite sufficient for any 
programming job. 

Of course, for mathematical calculations 
assume that everybody is using WCfs rex* mar 
lib. library, which was also included on the 
CoverOisk a while back. 

Dispatched 

The way that APIG works is fairly typical o' 
many ARexx. utilities that support Intuition. 
Essentially, any IDCMP everts (mouse dicks etc 
occurring at any particular window are "tians- 
feted" to ARex* messages containing the sarr^ 
information. These messages are then dispatched 
to an appropriate port for processing. In most suet j 
utilities, including A PIG, the port must first b 
specified by the user. 

For those a bit more familiar with the Arnsq^ 
system, hem Ls what happens. Any windows you j 
open with APIG are themselves separate tasks, an 3 
even have their own .ARexx port, called apig.tftkJ 
apig.task.2, etc. These "window"' tasks interce^ 
the IDCMP events, convert them to ARex* mes- 
sages [RexxMsgs in C) and dispatch them to the J 
specified port. An Arexx message has sever - 
fields, and their full description can be round in the 
documentation. 

The port apig.task,n accepts only one AReMj j 
command, 'DIE'. If it receives this command, k j 
will close the window, and deallocate all tl t 
resources used. This can be useful if your ARe*. 
program hangs, leaving unwanted windows ope^ 

Our program 

Here is a brief description of our program 
APIG jest. rexx, shown in Listing L You should ab*| 
find it on the CoverDisk, to save you typing it bM 
You can run it by typing rx APIG Jest at w.r 
shelf window. When you are finished, clicking oi 
the close gadget will shut everything down. j 
do not need to understand the program to run it 
Now, inevitably in describing this program, w*| 
are going to have to make same detours awjf 
from pure ARex* into the workings of Intuition m 
general and APIGJibrary in particular. 

We stress once again that rf you ire a beginnd 




program 


you should take some time to study at least the 
basics of Intuition. The description of the program 
assumes at least some familiarity with Intuition.. 

I think that this type of programming Mill be 
most useful to those who want to do some "quick 
and dirty" Intuition work, perhaps to try out an 
idea interactively, without having to drag out the C 
compiler. 

The first section of the program does some ini- 
tialisations. First, it opens a port - this is essential to 
APIG - and thgn calls a function which creates a. 
whole lot of global variables. These variables are 
mainly Hags, as defined in the system's C header 
files. 

This is very convenient, since most programmers 
already know the flag names, and they ate much 
easier to remember than their numeric equivalents. 

The flag names are still in their old 1,3 form, for 
example WINDGWCLQSE rather than v2.0 p s 
wf LG.CLOSEGADGET, but this should be no great 
problem, since the actual value (8) is unchanged.. 

We then open our window by calling the 
OpenWindowO function with all the required 
parameters. The parameters are very similar 
(though not exactly the same) as the Intuition 
library call. 

Note that when the arguments are null pointers, 
ie J GDOO GGOG\ can be left out altogether, pro- 
vided the comma separators are in place. 

APIC assumes that you know what you are 
doing, and incorrect parameters are practically 
guaranteed to crash the machine. 

You should also remember that if a line is too 
long in ARexx and you want to split it on to two 
lines, they should be separated by a comma. APIG 
has quite a lot of potentially long lines, and if you 
are not careful you w-ill get a ""wrong number of 
arguments* error. For example: 


V B r ® 1 !*n c t on gn aif , L n n>] e r n iiE , 1 1 ( ! 


hs the same as: 


■rarafaneUenpiai* 1 , 

, .&ngfrnaif r ete) 


Next we create our gadgets. Notice the 'link" 
argument in each function (refer to the APIG docs).

which links the gadget to the one before it. This 
creates a LIST of gadgets, just like Intuition wants 
it 

We then add the list of gadgets to our window, 
and refresh it so that everything appears as ft 
should. The APIG functions used lo do this are 
exact equivalents of their Intuition counterparts. 

Remember that Intuition's refreshing system is 
not as smart as it could be, and the toggled 
Boolean gadget will do weird things on occasion, 
especially if the window has been resized. This is 
not a fault of the program, hut a weakness in the 
Intuition refresh routine. 

The standard way Lo implement a gadget with 
alternate images is by using the C ADC HIM AGE flag 
and pointers to image structures. Any good refer- 
ence text on Intuition will explain this, 

The string gadget is quite straightforward. Note 
Lite 64S argument in the proportional gadget. This 
is so that our slider will have 101 positions rather 
than just 1 00 {85535/W&). 

Once the gadgets are all set up we enter the 
loop where we wait for messages at our program's 
port We have dealt with this at length in the past 


and w?n not repeat it here. Our program uses the 
standard method see the November 92 Amigo 
Computing for full details of receiving ARexx mes- 
sages at ports. 

Having received the messages, we can now 
interpret them. We have used a very simple 
approach in our program. The Hags we have speci- 
fied for each gadget ensure that the Boolean gad- 
get only sends a message as soon as it is clicked 
down, while the other two only when they arE 
released. In (act, if the string gadget is selected, 
according to Intuition convention, it will only send 
its message once return is pressed. 

Therefore for each gadget there is only one case 
where it will send a message. We can simply check 
the gadget ID (since there is only one window) or 
the gadget address. This approach is a bit simplis- 
tic, but it works. 

tven though our program is perhaps Oversimpli- 
fied, it shows how we can use the Intuition inter- 
face to send an ARexx message at the dick of a 
mouse. There may be many cases where this is 
much more desirable than having to type in the 
whole lists ot instructions,

I 1 If you've already perused She A 1 200 r s fea- 
tures you'll no doubt be aware that the AA 
chipset and more precisely the A1 200 itself 
marks a revolution in the home computer market 
on a par with the release of the Amiga itself way 
back in 1985. 

For the hordes ot budget-conscious DTV peo- 
ple. this new machine is like manna From heaven. 
At the recent Commodore launch even the most 
cynical Amiga hacks were hard pressed to hold 


With the A1 200 on the scene and designer software 
following close behind, Paul Austin lights the 

fuse of the DTV big bang 


AA software spotlight 







back a smile. 

Now before you sign the cheque there are a 
few points that any would-be Speilfoerg should 
consider. First and foremost has to be a hard 
disk. At the moment the A12DQ will be shipped 
exclusively without a hard disk. 

Obviously for any serious use especially with 
the inevitable increase in file size a hard disk is 
essential. There are two ways around the prob- 
lem. First you could take the DIV approach and 
invest in the IDE hard drive of youf choice and 
then fit it yourself. 

Although this may sound like a rather daunt- 
ing prospect it s realiy I very simple e*ef£i$e t The 
only problem is the immediate invalidation o! the 
guarantee which popping the lop off the 
machine ensures. 

Replacement 

The second alternative is to have the hard disk 
fitted by the supplier. Again this invalidates the 
standard Commodore warrantee but more often 
than not the larger suppliers offer their own war- 
ranty agreements as a replacement 

With this method it can work put slightly 
more expensive but at least your peace of mind 
is ensured. 

As yet I can't offer any specific details as to 
which companies will be offering a hard drive 
option, but it's a near certainty that Power 
Computing will be leading the field alongside 
ZCL and Silica. 

If you do take the second method please bear 
in mind that suppliers' warranty agreements are 
only as good as the company that issues them. 

As a result, sCs often well worth spending a lit- 
tle more cash with well established 1 companies 
such as those listed rather than taking a risk with 
a lesser know company who may well be cutting 
their margins to the bone in order to offer seem- 
ingly spectacular reductions. 

Finally we come to the RAM options which 
again are vital for serious DTV applications. The 


As some famous person almost certainly once 
said, r 'A machine is only as good as its soft- 
ware..,'". Fortunately for the new breed of 
Amiga the future hraks very good indeed. 

At the forefront of the mad scramble to 
take advantage of the new 256- colour si an 
dard display and of course the 262,000 colour 
HamS mode Is our old friend DPalnl, re-born 
under the new title of DFaint IV AA. 

As the name suggests the new release 
boasts full support for the amazing variety 
and quality the AA chipset can provide In all 
screen modes. 

Although I've only used a Beta copy at the 
recent A 1200 launch the software already has 
the makings of a monster. Alas, 
the Beta version wasn't In a 
fit state to animate so 


agonising question of HamS animation speeds 
may have lo remain a mystery for another 
month at least. 

As you may be aware thanks to our 
American correspondent speeds of 25 FPS 
interlaced and 50 FP5 non -Interlaced are 
already being claimed on the A4QG0. 

Only the release ol DPafnt IV AA or 
Brilliance from Digital Creations will answer 
the speed question on the A 1700, (test assured 
I hat AC will he the first to bring you the facts 
the minute either package crosses the pond in 
a finished form. 

If like me you can't wait to apply the power 
of the new machine and more precisely its 
amazing chip-set ell is not tost - both AD Pro 
and Scala MM 200 already take advantage of 
the AA and the machine's 2Mb of chip RAM 

which means the new wipes which refuse to 
work on anything but an A3DQ0 are

Co-pro pointers 


The optional co-processor is factory fitted as required. If you're plan- 
ning to employ the A12GQ For power applications such as ray tracing 
and other such number crunching marathons, an FPU or co-processor 
will save a lot of valuable rendering time. 

As mentioned above, the standard machine comes without an FPU 
and unfortunately there's no option to add one later - it you're thinking 
about this it must be fitted at the factory. 

The FPU itself comes in two Forms,, either a Motorola 6S8SI or 
6^882 with a price point reflecting the difference in speed. Like all the 
chips within the machine these wLJI almost certainly be surface 
mounted, again making a future upgrade a difficult if not impossible. 




machine, like the 
A 3000, will offer up Lo 2Mb 
of chip RAM, 

At present it's still unclear 
whether the 2Mb will come as slan 

dard or whether 




there will be 1Mb fitted 
internally with the second 
added via the trap door. The 
question is, will Commodore 
add the expansion at the 
factory? 

On the fast RAM front the 
future looks equally rosy 
with up lo 4 Mb of 32-bit 
RAM in the CPU slot with an 
additional 4Mb of 16-bit 
RAVI available via the 
PCMCIA slot. 

Again the option for addi- 


Ilona! 
RAM Is an 
important point for 
D TV and specifically anima- 
tion, To get the best from the 
machine's 32-bit architecture, the 
4Mb of 32 -bit RAM is a must with the 16- bit RAM 
being a useful addition but by no means as fail - 
as we're all too aware when animating speed is 
everything. 

The mention of the CPU slot also raises another 
interesting point. One ui the machines strongest 
selling points is its built-in up-chippable design - 
030s, 040s, the sky's the limit.

PROGRAMMING 


Designer 



T he picture on an Amiga screen can be in 
up to three independent layers. The fore- 
ground is made up of sprites, small 
graphic elements 16 pixels wide, Ewo bitplanes 
deep, and of any height. 

The Amiga library routines use a ^impleSprite 
structure that holds data for each sprite - the 
height, horizontal and vertical co-ordinates, sprite 
number and a pointer to a data array in chip 
memory, This array contains word pairs with the 
sprite's bitplane data (labouriously typed in). 

The two sprites on the CoverDisk were 
designed using DPaintll. I saved each sprite as a 
separate brush, taking care to make the brushes 
16 pixels wide. The height of the sprite did not 
matter. I used four colours (two bilptenes) for the 
brushes, but the first sprite colour will be trans- 
parent, 

Interpret 

DPaintll produces a short IFF (International File 
Format) file for each brush. The file reader module 
readsprite.c can read and interpret this file, or a 
similar file produced by another artist 
program. 

The routine readfileQ has been adapted from 
the general IFF picture file routine that has graced 
these pages in the past. Sprite bitplane data is 
only two bytes wide and is not usually com- 
pressed, so a routine to decode compressed data 
has not been included. 

A sprite uses one of four sets of four colours. 
Sprites 0 and \ have colours 1 6 to 1 9; sprites 2 
and 3 have colours to 20 ■ 23; sprites 4 and 5 


Margaret Stanger explains how to use a program 
like DPaint to produce your own sprites 


have colours 24 to 2 7; sprites 6 and 7 have 
colours 2§ to 31, The height of the offending 
sprite is returned by this routine: 


tpritfhplght " n?jd* i UflSr0i?,iprdata r uieiipflri r pairS 


The inputs are : 


name 


sprdata 


viewport,' 

pair 


Pointer to the name of the file 
containing the data 
Pointer to the chip memory array 
to hold the sprite bitplane data 
Pointer to the current Viewport 
0,1, 2,3 depending which of four 
sprite pairs is to be used for the 
sprite 


The output is spriteherght Height of the sprite 
contained in the file. 

The routine will look for the usual chunkhead- 
ers in an IFF file. The GMAP chunk will be 
decoded to give the sprite height; the other data 
is either known (width and depth) or irrelevant 
(data from the screen the brush was saved on). 

The CMAP contains the colours used, and 
BODY or ABIT the bitplane data. The calling pro- 
gram allows space for a maximum height of 256 
pixels - this may be over-cautious. IF the file to be 


read is missing, (or not an IFF picture ILBM or 
ACBM hie),, the routine returns a sprite height of 
zero, the program will be stable but not attempt 
to display the missing sprite. 

The demo program on the CoverDisc con- 
tains two source modules, rsprite.c and 
spritemadx, which can be compiled and linked 
together in the normal way. 

Chip memory 

the object module, sprite, opens a Screen, 
and a Window in that Screen, tach ILBM picture 
file (DPaintll brush), with the filename specified 
in the calling program, is opened and the sprite 
data read into the appropriate array in chip 
memory., 

The colour data in the file determines the 
sprite's colours. The file is closed, and control 
goes back to the main program, which updates 
the sprite height in the Simple Sprite structure. 

I he sprites are displayed an the screen until 
the user closes the window, or clicks a mouse 
button, Ihe sprites are freed, the window and 
screen closed, and the program exitL 

Although I can now design sprites and read 
them in to a program more quickly, their quality 
has not improved as much as I had hoped. I vtili 
need an artist! 


there are several Amiga Libraries, 
each containing routines for use in 
your programs. The main libraries 
used are Exec, DOS, Graphics and 
Intuition. 

Exec library routines handle the 
multitasking and the lowest level ol 
interaction between the hardware 
and the software. DOS library rou- 
tines handle input and output 
control. 

Associated with each library is a 
special file with extension .fd. These 
files are usually found on the Extras 
disk in their own directory. 

An '.fd' file contains a list of the 
routines in the library, together with 
the input parameters that each rou- 
tine takes, and the corresponding 
registers used in assembly language. 

Any value returned by a routine 
will be in register DO, but other regis- 
ters may have been overwfitten,espe- 
ci ally AO, A1 and DL 

To access a library routine you 
must First open the corresponding 
library. In assembler, when a library 
is opened, the pointer (or library 
base) is stored by the program- If a 


library routine i$ declared as an 
external reference (JtRtF), the linker 
can calculate its offset from the 
library 1 base. The linker knows where 
to Find the routine, and can link it to 
the rest of the program. 

The 'QpenLibrary' routine is 
found in the Exec library, but the 
Exec library base is always available 
to us from the same location ( 
_AbsExecBase}. Once a library is 
open, its routines can be called as rf 
they were subroutines or your own 
machine language routines. For 
assembly language the correct 
library base must be in register A6 
when crneol its routines is called. 

The short demo program on the 
CoverDisk uses Five library routines: 
OpeniibraryQ and Close Library Q 
from the Exec library, DelayO, 
OutputQ arid WriteO from the DOS 
library.

The Devpac Assembler has 
Macros available for calling 
Amiga library routines. Using 
my usual assembler, I would call 
the Delay routine jsr _V VO Delay 
To call the same routine in the 
DEVPAC programming environ- 
ment, use CALLDOS Delay. 

The macro CALLDOS would 
save the contents of register A6, 
load A6 with the library pointer, 
call the required DOS Library 
routine, and restore the original 
contents of register A6. 

It would not be necessary to 
declare each library routine as 
an external reference, but the 
header files exec/exec JibJ, 
Ilhrartes/dosJ, and 

libranes/dos liib.i may need to 
be included.

that, even more additions are required to the 


MKk fter a lot of speculation, and a whole 
host of rather misleading leaks from 
# ^countless third-party developers, the 
Format for the new breed of machines has finally 
hit the streets. 

Although both the A40GG and its pint-sized 
counterpart the A12QQ are truly wonderful 
machines they do lack one feature that casts a 
rather grey shadow over the earlier launch. 

Alas, the tong awaited Digital 5ound 
Processor or DSP is obvious oniy by its absence. 
In addition there's no built-in Midi ports as 
widely suggested earlier m the year, 

With the average plug-in Midi connector 
retailing for as little as £20 I can understand why 
Commodore have sacrificed built-in Midi ports, 
perhaps in order to save space or alternatively in 
an attempt keep costs an check. 

The missing element 1 can't understand is the 
DSP itself. Why, oh why have Commodore let 
the ailing ST Off the hook yet again, when even 
the Atari top brass are openly admitting the 
problems with their dying product line. 

In defence 

To add insult to injury, the bug -rid den Falcon 
boasts a DSP as standard, so why not the A4QOO 
and A1 200? 

In defence of Commodore the DSP situation 
isn't quite as bleak as it may first appear, 
Although neither of the aforementioned 
machines ship with a DSP at present, plans are 
afoot. 

To clarify the DSP position I spake to Andrew 
Ball* the man behind the infamous Commodore 
press machine. After a fair amount of verbal 
jousting he finally confirmed that the A4GOO will 
indeed feature a DSP in the future. Unfortunately 
the time scale for the launch was at best rather 
sketchy, 

Even after my best efforts as an investigative 
reporter, Mr Ball wouldn't commit himself to a 
specific date other than to confirm that the 
upgrade will appear sometime in 93. 

The good news is that the addition of a DSP 
will be an upgrade and won't require replace- 
ment of the entire machine. As you may be 
aware, courtesy of our A4G0Q feature in last 
month's issue, the A4QOO has been designed to 
be upchippabie. 

Jn other words in theory anything from a 
680020 to a 68060 - when they become avail- 
able - will slip directly into the machine via the 
CPU daughter board already built-in. Apparently 


side a replacement CPU. 

As yet it's impossible to stats how Commodore 
will handle daughter board upgrades but ifs 
highly likely that they’ll implement a trade in sys- 
tem, so existing usem with 040-based A4QG0s can 
send their existing boards in exchange for an 
identical or faster CPU/DSP combination. 

Not so rosy 

"his is all good news for A400Q users but alas 
the situation far A12QQ owners isn't quite so rosy, 
in shop Commodore have no plans to add a DSP 
option to the A12QD range... end of story. 

The reason for this decision is two-fold. As you 
may be aware, the A1200 like the A4000 is an 
upchippable machine - due to the machine's lim- 
ited expandability, implementation of a DSP via 
the trapdoor CPU slot is a best a tricky business. 

Although Commodore themselves have no 
plans to offer the option, Mr Ball was very careful 
to mention that the addition of a DSP is by no 
means impossible and is very likely be taken up by 
third-party developers sometime in 93. 

If the hoped for 
third-party DSP systems 
do indeed see the light 
or day during 93 it 
adds yet another twist 
to this already complex 
tale. As youTe probably 
aware the AI2QG ;s a 
true 32-bit machine 
and as a result is only at 
its best while using 32- 
bit memory. 

In order to do exactly 


ever-expanding CPU daughter board. Like the 
A600, the A 1200 can lake advantage of PCMCIA 
cards as a source ol additional RAM. 

Unfortunately additional PCM RAM is strictly 
16 bit, and as a result can’t by definition fully 
exploit the potential of the A1200 is 32-bit archi- 
tecture and aiiendari CPU- 

To counteract the problem, the daughter 
board comes to the rescue yet again by allowing 
the addition of up to 4Mb of 32- bit memory 
directly onto the board. 

32-bit memory 

It you're planning to take advantage of the 
proposed third-party DSi systems if and when 
they arrive, a certain amount of 32 -bit memory 
may become essential, as any DSP system is very 
likely to be married with a direct-to-disk record- 
ing system in such situations fast transfer 
between the CPU, DSP and hard disk is essential. 

Even if the proposed DSP releases fail to 
appear a certain amount of 32-bit RAM is a real 
advantage no matter what the application. 

For example if you plan to employ the A12G0 
as a platform for power sequencers such as KCS 
and Bars h Pipes Professional with therr accom- 
panying army of add-on modules, and almost 
limitless selection of windows and screens r addi- 
tional 32-bit RAM is highly recommended. 

This becomes even more important if such 
software is to be teamed with presentation and 
titling software to produce a complete multime- 
dia production. 


Compatibility across the range 

As far as compatibility is concerned it's highly unlikely problems will arise 
on existing sequencing software, as the majority of the enhancements 
offered by the AA chipset are dedicated to improving the graphical out- 
pul ol the m^chFne. 

If the unspeakable happens and incompatibility does rear its ugly 
head all is not lost, as both the A4GG0 and A 1 200 have a fall back mode 
built in to the AA chip-set which allows the machine to boot using ECS 
emulation • a format that's already been tried and tested on the ASOG 
Plus and A6G0 and should ensure complete compatibility across the 
range.

Reading at 


T here are two methods of keeping dawn 
costs when using bulletin boards regularly. 
One is lo invest hard-earned cash in a fast 
modem while a cheaper method is to inrest about 
half an hour of your time to set up an offline 
reader, 

Reading and replying to messages online both 
costs you money and also clogs up the board, 
making other users wart to get through. If you've 
ever tried dialling in to a popular board in the 
evening you'll already know how frustrating it can 
be. 

Most sysops encourage the use of offline read- 
ers as it allows more people to call in, without hav- 
ing to go to the expense of installing extra phone 
fines. 

So what does an offline reader do? Basically it 
unpacks and sorts a bundle of messages, presents 
them lo you in whatever order you choose and 
allows you to make replies or write original mes- 
sages yourself ., These replies are then bundled up 
again ready to be sent (uploaded) to the BBS. 

At the BBS end, the sysop will have set up a 
lv door* where you can choose which messages 
you want to read, have them bundled up and 
compressed, then downloaded to your machine 
for the QLR to work on.. If that all sounds terribly 
complex, (don't worry - it's really easy. 

This month I've been looking at the Blue Wave 
Mail Door, and an QLR for use with it, Q-Blue. 
Each of them takes about ten minutes to set up, 
one while online at the BBS and the other at home 
on your Amiga. 

From then on, the only time you will spend on- 
line b the line it lakes lo bundle your new mes- 
sages, download them, and upload yoL.r prepared 
replies, This also has Lhe advantage ol giving you 
more time to download files, instead of spending it 
all reading messages. 


as you like them, This 
includes the message area* 
you want, how many mes- 
sages are to be bundled in 
each area, which particular 
messages you want from 
each area and so on. 

For instance you can 
choose to receive just those 
messages which contain the 
word ■“amiga" from a busy 
area whkh covers many dif- 
ferent machines. Or if there's 
a particular person who 
annoys you, simply set the fil- 
ter to exclude all messages to 
□rfrom that person. 

Another handy option Is 
the password. This can be set up to operate both at 
the BB5 end and on your machine (with different, 
passwords for each). Thus other people using your 
machine won't be able to read your message bun- 
dles. 

Once everything is set to your liking, simply tell 
the program to bundle up all the messages you 
want, and download them. Then log-off.

Configuration 


Important 


Looking at the BBS end ot things first, some- 
where on tf>e main menu there will be options far 
she various mail doors the board supports, 

Once selected you'll be presented with another 
menu, the most important option pf which is con- 
figuration. The Blue Wave Mail Door is extremely 
flexible and allows you to configure things exactly

Back on your machine you will have a compressed 
File which you've just downloaded, Now comes 
another period of configuration lo prepare Q- Blue to 
your liking. First of all you need to make four new 
directories - downloads, uploads, work and reply. 

These can go anywhere you like, but you nEed Lo 
specify the complete pathname to them in the con- 
figuration option, You also need access to a text edi- 
tor of some kind. I use a small Freeware program 
called Texira, which is in the c: directory, renamed 
as ed. 

Q-Blue offers several ways of sorting and display- 
ing messages such as by number,, age, name and so 
on. There are also several compression methods to 
choose Hrom r with the facility to set up others if you 
wish. 

Once everything is ret up, and the configuration 

saved, the next step is to 
load in the packet of mes- 
sages you downloaded ear- 
lier, Q-fllue then 
uncompresses the file, a 
nice touch being that it 
doesn't simply fall aver if 
you have selected different 
methods at the two ends, 
but corrects your mistake 
for you IF it can. 

Now you can read all 
the messages you down- 


loaded in whatever order you choose. Options 
include hopping from area |p area, skipping back- 
wards and forwards, writing new messages, replying 
to old ones and even sav ng particular messages to 
disk. 

Messages tan be displayed singly, or as a list, and 
bath mouse and keyboard may be used, with some 
of the common menu options duplicated at Lhe bot- 
tom of the screen for quick selection. 

All your replies are collected together, bundled 
up and compressed at the end of the session. Then 
the next time you call the BBS this file tan be 
uploaded, in Lhe same session that you download 
your next batch of new messages. 


Messages 


Q-Blue understands both QW'K and Blue Wave 
style message bundles. It can read messages pro- 
duced by any mail door compatible with either of 
there, and create replies that they can understand. A 
BBS neaf you is likely to have at least one door avail- 
able which you can use. 

Ask the sysop lor guidance and he or she will tell 
you what to do on that particular board. A BBS 
which supports mail doors will almost certainly have 
Q-Blue available for download. 

The unregistered version is slightly disabled in 
that no more than Five replies may be uploaded at 
any one rime. If you register ( J20) this restriction is 
lifted. Meanwhile you have a month to try it out 
before being obliged to register.

AMOS 



T he Amiga is a WIMP system, and hy this I 
don't mean it backs may from a fight. 
The idea of a computer interface contain- 
ing Windows, Icons, Mice and Pointers was origi- 
nally developed by Xerox at Palo Alto Research 
Centre, 

When the Amiga was designed in 19S4-S GUIs 
were all the rage, so the designers incorporated a 
mouse and a GUI called Workbench in the new 
machine. Only with Amos cart we get the real 
power of windows and menus. Although they're 
not the kind of windows you're used to in 
intuition, they are as functiona. 

If the kind oF programs you want to write are 
more utility or productivity type, then yau r ll have 
to use the windowing functions of Amos. A win- 
dow js basically an independent little area of text 
and graphics on the scteen. To open a window on 
the screen you must employ the WIND OPEN 
command, like so: 

vfnd Dptn UtJ, 10,50,10 

This, for example, would open us a window on to 
■ n e screen (window !) # which would have its top 
eft corner at screen location 10,10 and would be 
iQ characters wide by 1 0 deep. The point of this is 
that you can have two or more windows on the 
screen at the same time, all with their own text, 
and graphics, like this: 

StfEpr Open .Hires 

CLs 0 
Flssl Off 

Piper 7 s Wind Opt^ 1,0,0,411,211 : Print H T!i5 is 
p i r d :« ■ n jr b ■=• r V,,. . 

& lpFf i \ Wind Dptn 2,320,^40,20 i Print %,,jnd 
ills is flUl Ur 2!" 
ill t Key 

Each window acts like a little version of the 
=.:reen and anything you can write to a screen you 
an send to a window, 

Picture windows 

".Though the windows you get in Amos aren't the 
imi as the kind of thing you are used to In 
Amiga DOS r they still have a range of styles and 
■ jpes, and can be made to act like real windows 
v th the minimum of tweaking. 

: qf example, you can re-size them and even 
i-Jd gadgets like Intuition, but aFI this must be 
tfone manually as Intuition is not loaded when 
**10$ is running, alas {all this is changing with 
Amos Professional, of course). 

Re-sizing is a good example so let's look at that, 
j t p s make a window on the screen which you can 
pull at the bottom right-hand corner by clicking 
" ii with the left mouse button. The window can 
■f ■* -sized on the screen^ and when you let go of 
outton the window snaps to that shape, 
n order to grab anything on the screen - unlike 
very convenient Intuition code which does It 
* 1 For you - you have to draw a window and then 
'"he d Zone around it to sense the presence of 
i mouse dick. 

"nen once you've sensed it you have to see 
w* it moves, and then resize the window with 


Phil South opens out the Amos windowing 
system, and sheds some light on the subject 



WIND SIZE. In this example program we first open 
a hi-res screen and set the colours as normal: 

Scree- Opsn M4D,2Sfr,1MifU 

Piper 0 : CLj 0 

Then we activate WIND SAVi, which means our 
windows are smart and don't screw up anything 
we might have on the screen below it. This is really 
groovy because it means you can open a window 
ovef a game screen for example, like an IFF File, 
and nothing on the screen will be erased when 
you dose the window: 

iiiftd 

Next we RESERVE ZONE, which is what you do 
every time you are about to SET ZONE. What this 
means is that if you Reserve Zone 1 you are basi- 
cally saying "look, Tm going to define a zone later 
on in the program, so allocatE some memory for it 
and I'll get back to you": 

■le5**V6 l 1 

Now we set up all the characteristics of the win- 
dow we'll be defining, in this case Window 1 is a 
20 x 20 character window, whose tap left corner is 
positioned at location 1 0,50 on the screen, After 
that we set the BORDER and TITLE TOR functions 
to describe a little bit more about the window, like 
the title tex{, in this case "Grab my comer, man I", 
and the colours of the border: 

ifind tipm 1, ID, It jlQ, 20,1 
tardtr ,0,4 

TitU Tup " Grib ly earner, (Ian] H 
Set Zone 1,10,50 Ta 10*110,5(1*141] 


The last bit is the interesting part. Next w§ 
open up the Zone we promised earlier. It covers 
the area taken up by the window, and does this by 
specifying the Zone number, in this case 1 r and 


the co-ords of the top left and bottom right cor- 
ners of tl>e Zone. Bottom right ra set here by lazily 
multiplying the top left figures by 160, that is to 
say S x 20, 8 being die number of pixels in a char- 
acter, and 20 being the width of the window. 
Then weTe into the main loop of the program: 




]f Hem cer-i an i Faj.se lane*!

USD 


This checks for the MOUSE KEY and MOUSE 
ZONE functions to see if the mouse is within the 
zone and if it has the left mouse button pressed 
down. If rt does then the PflOC called RESIZE_ME is 
activated. 

The PRGC then does all the work, creating a 
rubber band effect to show you where the sides of 
the window are, altering the variables containing 
the window co-ards, and checking to see if the 
mouse button has been released yet with the 
WHILE WEND loop:

Once the button is released the window is 
redrawn to the new size. When the new co-ords 
have been stoned the old Zone is cancelled and re- 
drawn to the new size* and it's all ready to start 
again, 

.And there you have it, perfect windows, and not 
a single patch of putty in sight, Now you can create 
multiple-windowed programs and multi windowed 
games too! How about a dungeon master done in 
the PD, then eh?

D esktop publishers car never have 
enough typefaces, particularly if they 
design a lot of leaflets or advertise- 
ments. In past issues we've looked at shareware 
typefaces from George Thompson Service and 
Ihe commercial Computer Safari typefaces from 
EM Computergraphlc. 

Both were extremely goad value for money, 
but neither car top what PD-Soft has come up 
with - 300 typefaces on 15 disks lor a penny 
under £40. That's about 1 3 p each. 

The faces are all in Adobe Type 1 format. For 
PageStream 2.1 and 2.2 users these can be used 
just as they are. The Font Manager part of the 
program needs to he used to add the new type- 
faces to the ProPage system, hut after that it J s 
just a case of selecting the typeface you want to 
use, and then using It 

Mo bells and whistles are provided on these 
disks. In order to give you as many typefaces as 
possible for your money, in most cases just the 
Adobe Font Metric (AFM) and Printer Font Binary 
fPfB) files are supplied*. 

Just typefaces 

There are no icons to drag around, no auto- 
matic installation programs, no readme files, no 
example pictures... just the typefaces. On a few 
Of the disks there are unnecessary files, like a 
200k BMAP file on Disk 4 that is of no earthly use 
to Amiga owners — a little oversight that PD- 
Soft will no doubt rectify. 

Installing them for PageStream isn't difficult, 
just a simple file copying job from the original 
disks to your PageStream fonts disk(s) or 
Page St ream /PS Font 5 directory on your hard 
drive, 

By far the easiest way to install the typefaces 


where you want them is to use a file manager 
utility like SID or DirtVork, PD-Soft is a PD library, 
so if you don’t already own one, it might be an 
idea to ask about a file manager at the same time 
as inquiring about Ihe ivpefaces. 

Now I've not had time to test all 300 faces 
with PageStreami, but IV toed a couple at ran- 
dom from each disk and have had no problems. 

Professional Page 3 and Professional Draw 3 
users can also use Adobe Type 1 typefaces by 
running them through the FpntManager pro- 
gram and converting to Compugraphic format 
Alas, not all the lypelatEs in this collection will 
convert. FpntManager complains that some 
"can’t be read", other times the program just 


hangs half way through the conversion. 

it’s a problem that other libraries have 
addressed by converting as many as will convert, 
and making up special Compugraphic collec- 
tions, PD-5oft may we^l do the same with this col- 
lection, but that 300 may come dow ! n to as few 
as ISO or 200, 

Once converted to Compugraphic, of course, 
these files can be converted a further time by 
Founta in for use with Workbench 2.

Despite the "exclusive" claim by 
PD-Soft and the copyright mes- 
sage cm the disk labels, all of the 
typefaces in this collection have 
been generated from Macintosh 
public domain and shareware 
typefaces. 

If you have already bought 
shareware Compugraphic or 
Adobe Type 1 typefaces from 
companiei like George Thompson 
Services or EM Computergraphic, 
then you will already own a fair 
number of the faces In this PD- 
Soft collection - perhaps as many 
as hall of Ih em, maybe more. 

Studying the AFM files I can see 
that they have all been altered 
from how they were originally dis- 
tributed, and each now contains a 
comment to the effect that the 
J ile has been “Converted /fixed for 
Lhe Amiga"’ by B0 Track Software, 
the Stateside company from 
which PD-Soft has licensed the 


disks, Missing from sill these AFM 
files are the Original copyright mes- 
sages put: there by the original 
authors, 

Also missing are the readme hies 
that originally accompanied these 
shareware faces, the text files that 
identified the authors and specified 
the distribution and usage rights. 

5-ome typefaces have had an 
,H R5 ,J prefix added to their names 
and appear to be newly -genera ted 


versions of older typefaces. 

Mi ami Mights might be a type- 
face name you recognise? Or 
PoluSemiScripl perhaps? How 
aboul LowerEastSide? Well, these 
and about 30 or 40 more faces are 
present in the Collection as 
R 5 MiamiN Ights, R SPokjSemtScripl, 
and so on. 

The PFfl Piles are different from 
the original generations ol Ihe 
same faces without the 'W prefix, 


and the copyright messages of ihe 
original designers of the faces are 
not in these files. Bui apart from the 
fontname being different, they 
appear to be exactly the same 
designs as the originals. 

Mow I'm not trying to dirrih on 
to the high moral ground here, I'm 
simply reporting my findings, And 
what Tve found is a typeface for 
almost every occasion. 

if you want something for the 
body text of a fanzine or newsletter, 
then you'll find serif and sans-serif 
faces here. Including a few small 
type "families" like CKasska Roman, 
Cl a-ssica Italic and Classic Heavy — 
normal slanted and bold versions of 
the same basic design, 

Handwriting or Curstve'faces 
abound, and there are a fair number 
of black letter' faces, including one 
called Manage that would look 
good on wedding invitations.

MULTIMEDIA 







Amiga Computing January }993 


T he new Kodak CD-ROM based initiative 
known as PhotoCD is a new storage tech- 
nology created by Kodak (you'd never 
have guessed!) for everyday 35mm photographs. 

In the veiy near Future you'll be able to take 
your snaps to a local shop and have them trans- 
ferred to a gold-coloured PhotoCD disc. You can 
ihen wander home, slip this into your PhotoCD- 
compatible player and view your embarrassing 
party snaps on the television. 

You need never worry about your photos fari- 
ng, smeared with fingerprints or spoiled by spilled 
drinks again! 

A £4,99 PhotoCD disc will hold roughly TOO 
images. Your photographs can be transferred to 
disk for £8.75 For 25 exposures, {I believe your 
existing negatives can also be converted) and a 
nationwide chain of shops to convert films is now 
being set up. 

To view PhotoCDs you'll need a special player. 
Much to Commodore's embarrassment CDTV can 
not, at present, handle the PhotoCD format. 
Embarrassing because, as older AC readers witl 
know. Commodore originally announced that it 
would be compatible? CD-I ^s compatible, and 
there are also several PhotoCD specific players 
wath prices starting at £299. 

Rising safes 

The advantages of PhotoCD far CDTV and CD<I 
are pretty obvious. In a fairly short period there 
will be a large number of people wanting to view 
'heir pictures, and sates of CDTV and CD-I prod- 
ucts as potential viewing systems should rise 
according^. 

Most interesting, however, are the advantages 
to multimedia users. As anyone involved with the 
production of MM applications knows, one of the 
more difficult areas of production is getting colour 
;or even black and white) images into the 
computer. 

With the arrival of PhotoCD, however, you can 
■■■■aider around taking photographs, run the film 
down to a local shop and in a short time have 
|h em back in a digital format on a CD disc ready 
lor use. This is a lot cheaper than traditional scan- 


New technology 

Another new technology is the Sony Mini Disc, which could well 
end up overshadowing both CDTV and CD-3 systems Why? Well 
suppose I described a technology that offered compact cassettes 
(smaller than CDs), capacities of roughly 220Mb and fast access 
time but which could also be written to - wouldn't yon want it? 

Given this specification, Mini Disc s could easily replace CDs. 
Alternatively it could fust become a rival, but I can't see Sony set- 
tling for that. 

Another new technique to appear is the CD based gear called 
CD R Unlike normal CDs, which are WORM systems (Write Once, 
Read Many), CD-R can be written to many limes. Currently CD fi 
is limited in that you can only write an entire CD at a time, raiher 
than Jumping in and recording tracks, then play other parts and 
go back and record another track. But it's a step in the right 
direction, and has an interesting future. 


Julius Alexander looks at new technologies that will 
affect Amiga CD and 
multimedia 


ning and 
much more 
convenient. The 
result will hopefully 
be an increase in the num- 
ber of MM applications and a pos- 
sible drop in their price. 

Another development set to have an impact on 
the Amiga is the Philips DCC - Digital Compact 
Cassette. Unlike normal cassettes, DCC is digital, 
which means that it will provide far superior quality 
- effectively CD-type sound reproduction. 

But while having CD sound quality, it has the 
advantages of traditional tapes, in that you can 
record on DCCs, and compact size. 

How can DCC technology squeeze enough 
information to reproduce 
high quality 1 6-bit sound for 
two hours play on to a cas- 
sette only slightly bigger than 
existing analogue magnetic 
types? The secret lies in a 
new compression system 
developed by Philips known 
as Precision Adaptive Sub- 
band Coding (PA5C to its 
friends). 

What this does is to watch 
the recording signal and 
record only what can be 
heard by the human ear. By 
doing so it can vary the bit 
rate being recorded and use 
a quarter of the space that 


16-bit systems 
require. While access 
times are too slow to be 
used in real-world applications it is 
likely to have a tremendous impact on a back-up 
device with a cost of just £499 for recorder and 
player. 

To finish off this month, I've just received news 
that the CD disc version of Sensible Soccer is going 
to be priced at a rock bottom £19.991 More inter- 
estingly, Commodore are actively promoting the 
idea of budget CDTV software (sub £1 0 is the fig- 
ure being handed around). 


Acceptance 


So what, you may ask OK, it's great news if you 
want that particular title, but what does it mean for 
the rest of us? Well consider that currently CDTV 
applications start at prices around £29. Also con- 
sider that the acceptance of CDTV depends largely 
on the applications that are available for it and their 
price. 

There are roughly 1 1 0 applications, so no short- 
age there. It's merely a matter of price, and if, as f 
expect, other companies follow the lead and drop 
their prices accordingly, CDTV could soon have a 
mass of low price discs that will make CD-I look 
very expensive. 


# Next month 1 11 be discussing Commodore s 
approach to CDTV,
