but there ' 's such 0 diversity of £Grt(i?nf (ho(

say there should be something to suit oil 
tastes. 

for a start, we have the latest in our 
continuing series of supenests, this time concentrating on the 
fer vkko digitisers around 

judging from replies fo our reader surveys, roundups and 


supertesis meet with a mixed respond There ore (ftose - in 
fjftf ma/arify - who find them informative and a good com- 
parative study of an area, and a s mailer number of readers 
who meat the duplication of information inherent in such 
on article. 

Perhaps those with strong feelings on whether or nal 
superfesfs ore 0 good idea can write to ESP and let us knew? 

Those cpmms i/yera who rnig/if have been despairing of an 
interesting event in fter attowjse dull existences might like to 
cast a jaded telephonic eye over the Supra FAXModm review ; 


and 3D freaks con find in Aladdin 4D yet another excuse to 
spend innumerable hoirra rn franf of an ^migo screen, 

for the canvas-shy artist we have Personal Paint a new 
256<oiour package, and our hodgtt musicians can make (he 
most of shareware and PD offerings with our special feature. 

finally, take a look at the all-new Almanac section, 
which this month has been given 0 complete facelift and a 
name change. Cnsjghf, as we've chosen to call it f should 
hopefully continue fo offer insight into the whole spectrum 
of Amiga use,

AT LEAST 2,500 A12Ms have been sold in 
Britain with a fault that shows up only 
when the computers are connected to 
television sets. 

Commodores Amiga product manager 
Gary Lewis confirmed there had been 
problems and thought the fault might lie 
in the machine's sound chip. 

Technics experts consider this unlikely, 
however, because the machine works cor- 
rectly when used with computer monitors. 
They point the finger at the internal RF 
modulator. 

Lewis claimed that the problem 
affected only live per cent of the first

do not have the defect. 

But Amigo Compwring readers from ail 
over the country have called our office 
reporting the fault. In many cases their 
Amigas worked perfectly lor some time 
before failing. 

One user said that for six weeks his 
machine had been used heavily for his 
business and then stopped working 
through the television. Another said: "First 


the colours went, although you could still 
see the image, and then even the image 
disappeared. It was distorted and flicker-

And because several hard disk con- 
trollers are unhappy working at high 
speed, RCS are also supplying a free SCSI 
hard disk controller with the board, 

,V AL this level, claims that the A3000 is 
better value far money are unsound, as 
the F4G outruns it by 5GQ per cent/' said 
Hydra boss Graham Heggie. 

*lf you need this level of grunt nothing 
else will do. With an 040 you can do a 
week's rendering in a day/'

A500 repair 
centre opens 

5IDCUP*based dealer Silica Systems {081- 
309 1111) have extended their support to 
Amiga owners by opening a servicing a 
repair centre for ASOQ*. 

Amigas sent to the firm undergo a diag- 
nostic check to find the source of the prob- 
lem, and if the machine requires anything 
more than a standard repair then an engi- 
neer tails the customer. 

A 30-day warranty is given to every com- 
puter fixed, and Pen an extra charge this can 
be extended to one year. Machines are 
returned by an overnight courier 

Said spokesman Andy Leaning: "We've 
been able to offer Atari and PC customers 
servicing and upgrade facilities for some 
time. 

"Now our engineers are experienced 
enough with Ami gas and we've built up 
adequate components stocks,, so we should 
be able to repair most A5GGs within two 
days/

News 


The Disney 
DevCon 



The firs! worldwide Amiga Developer's 
Conference was held from January 26 to 
30 in Orlando, Florida, home of 
DisneyWorfd and Epcot Center, 

The -lOO-pi ub developers in attendance 
- from Australia, Austria, Belgium, 
Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, The 
Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, 
Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom 
and the USA - managed to keep their 
mind* off the local attractions (thanks in 
part to same very nasty, rainy, un-Florida- 
like weather during the first few days of 
the conference) long enough to drink in 
the latest developments from 
Commodore's hardware and software 
teams. 

DevCon is not usually an event you can 
report much news from. Developers and 
journalists are required to sign a non-dis* 
closure agreement that ensures you won't 
report on the company's secrets. 

However, -ever since Lew Eggebrecht 
has taken over Commodore's engineering 
department, there's been a new openness 
about the company J s future hardware 
directions, and there's plenty of hot news 
that's legal to talk about. 

Well start with some new hardware 
products that Eggebrecht mentioned 
would be shipping this year. Note that 
none of these products were complete 
when DevCon took plate, so any esti- 
mated shipping dates should be taken 
with a grain of salt. 

First there's the previously announced 
A4091 SCSI-1! card for Amiga 4QOD users 
tired □! the machine’s poky., processor- 
hogging, hard-drive-only IDt interface. 

The A4Q91 is a 32 bit Zorro ill card that 


supports the Wide SCSI standard and has 
full bus- mastering capabilities. The card 
should be available by the time you read 
this. There's one caveat, though - you’ll 
need an updated fluster chip to use this, or 
just about any other, Zorro III bard drive 
controller. 

However, the Buster chips are surface- 
mounted on all but the most recent 
A4000S, meaning that someone’s going to 
have to do surgery on your A4QG0 be! ore 
this card will work. 

It you've believed all the rumours about 
a. mid-range A24O0 coming out to replace 
the A1 500/A2000 series, it's time to see the 
light. 

Commodore’s true replacement will be 
a lower-priced Amiga 4000 equipped with 
a 68ECQ30 board instead of the 68040 
found in current A40OOs, which should be 
available soon. 

The EC030 Is a version of the 68030 
that doesn't have an MMU (Memory 
Management Unit), which is only a con- 
cent il you want to run developer tools or 
use a virtual memory product like 
CJigamem. 

The current plan is to ship this unit with 
4Mb of RAM (2Mb Chip, 2Mb Fast) and a 


Denny Atkin 
reports from 
Florida on 
the latest 
developments 
over there 

1 20Mb IDE disk drive. You should be able 
to replace the LCQ3Q card with 
Commodore's A36-4Q 68040 card should 
you feel the need for speed. 

Eggebrecht also mentioned that the 
A4D00T ft doesn't stand for Tower, but for 
"Floor-Standing Unit", thanks ta another 
company claiming ownership of the word 
tower) would bE available during the sec- 
ond quarter of 1 993. Details are still top- 
secret, but the unit is more than an A400Q 
sitting on its side. 

Headache 

An unexpected and very impressive 
addition to the high-end product line is the 
AGA Display Enhancer, due out In the latter 
hail of 1 993, If you’ve got an AGA 
machine, you know what kind of headache 
it can be sometimes to get mode-promo- 
tion to work with some applications. 

The AGA Display Enhancer deinterlaces 
screens m hardware, and will work with all 
the AG A graphics modes. This means you 
no longer have to have a monitor that will 
sync down to 15kHz to play your old 
games. 

It also means that all graphics modes 
will be shown at rock- solid, scan- line-less 


Scape escape 

Virtual Reality Labi have started shipping Vs St a Pro 3 0, an 
enhanced version of the popular landscape generator thai 
includes full support of the AGA chipset, so you can render 
landscapes in 256 colour and Mam8 modes. Even it you 
don't have an AC A Amiga, though, this upgrade is worth 
checking out. 

A new cloud control panel lets you create clouds using 
random fractal mapping or by converting a landscape to 
clouds. You get complete control of cloud densily, hardness, 
and! size, 

Tree support has been greatly enhanced, with both 2D 
and 3D trees, including pines, oaks, palms and catli, 

You get full control of ihe die and derail of the trees. For 
instance, you can make the pines nearest to the camera 
more dialled than the ones at the top of the mountain in 
the distance. You can even place trees and grass manually 
on the screen. 

The new Altitude texture increases realism dramatically, 
so you’ll never see a hint of a polygon. If you’re looking for 
the ultimate in realism, VislaPro 3.0 supports creating 
stereo images which can be displayed using Sega or Toshiba

There'* a lot more than J can fit In this column, bul suf 


fke to say that this program is well worth the 535 upgtade 
price. Retail price is still £ 99 . 95 . 



Amigo CempyfJng 


April 1 F 993 


DSP is coming! 

An alternative to the EC030 card would 
be Commodore's 6BQ40 card that’s also 
equipped with a D5P (Digital Signal 
Processor), Eggebrecht said that this 
card would include a module with audio 
input/output ports, and that a module 
with a phone connector, for modem 
use, would be available as well, 

While the details given out on 
Commodore's DSP during the confer* 
ence are still classified, I can say that this 
is a much more sophisticated setup than 
that in the Atari Falcon, and should 
answer the wildest dreams of Amiga 
audio nuts. 

This card is slated for release at the 
end of the first half of 1993, and should 
work in Ihe A4000/040, A4OQO/ECO30, 
and A3000T, 

high frequencies, even BOO x 600 mode 
Eggebrecht said that some new modes 
would be available at slow refresh rales, 
including a mode with greater-than 1 ,024 x 
1,024 resolution, if your monitor will sup- 
port them. 

Also, the Display Enhancer has a built-in 
24-bit frame buffer, which will give you true 
24-bil capability? A lot of power in one 
card, and it's- likely to be priced for the 
power user. The card plugs into the Zono 
HI and Video slots and rs designed for the 
A4QQ0 series, although Commodore indi- 
cated it will work on the A300Q series as 
well, with reduced functionality. 

Finally, Eggebrecht indicated that 
Commodore remains committed to bring- 
ing CD-ROM capability to all Amiga sys- 
tems, and that we J ll eventually see 
CD-ROM drives for all current Amiga 
systems, 

Of course, what's a DevCon without 
dreams? Developers saw a lot of future 
developments that aren't likely to hit the 
market this year, bul were plenty to keep 
them excited about the Future of the 
Amiga. 

Eggebrecht said that among the future 
technologies being, considered by 
Commodore for the Amiga line are lull- 
motion video support (the company pub- 
licly demonstrated a very impressive MPEG 
card with crisp, full-motion video, at the 
Winter CE5 show), hardware support for 
ultra-fast 3D rendering, and Rise processors. 

Of course, developers are a demanding 
bunch, and many asked if other technolo- 
gies were on the way, Lggebrecht's down- 
to-earth response was: "We do the things 
that Commodore can do best, and we let 
the developer community do the things 
that they do best" 

Commodore understands that third-par- 
ties are responsible for much of the 
advancement in the Amiga market, and 
DevCon provided many sessions to help 
those developers keep up with the latest 
Commodore developments so they could 
run with them. 




Buying an AMIGA was 
your first great decision. 

Now go even further: these Amiga periph- the versatility, speed and storage eapabili- 
erals and hardware products will maximise ties that your Amiga promises.

Fun School - 
Time 

Europress software 

Last month we gave away Letters, a mod- 
ule from the fun School range of educa- 
tional software, which is aimed at 
teaching children in the under fives 
bracket the alphabet. 

Fallowing, an from that, this month 
we've included Time, another one of Fun 
School's modules. 

Time teaches children how to tdl the 
time using colourful animations and 
sound. Once it is running you'll see a 
dock in the top left-hand comer and a 
row of boxes across the bottom of the 
screen. 

The idea is that the computer sets the 
dock to different times randomly and you 
child has to use the boxes in the bottom 
of the screen to match the time the com- 
puter has picked, 

All of this is done using the two mouse 
buttons, The right button moves the flash- 
ing box along to your choice and the left 
button confirms your selection. 

Once your child has answered enough 
questions, they will be rewarded with 
teddy bear animation, and then asked if 
they wish to progress to the next level. 
You can exit Time at any point by pressing 
the Esc button. 


Pacman 

Author: Edgar M Vigdal 

Pacman is probably the third oldest game 
around nest to Space Invaders and 
Breakout. Even so, this version has to be 
one of the best around. 

fust rn case anyone reading this has 
been visiting another planet for the last 15 
or so years, the idea with Pacman is to eat 
as many power pills as possibly taking 
care not to bump into the ghosts. 

This may sound quite an easy task until 
you actually try it. You see the problem is 
that the ghosts just won't leave you alone. 
You can get your own back on these 
beasts by eating one of the- special power 
pills which turn them blue for a short lime 
enabling you to eat them. 

Occasionally special items appear in the 
middle of the screen - eating these will 
give yau special powers, like extra speed, a 
gun, and even glue which makes the 
ghosts run slower. You can also collect let- 
ters which spell EXTRA: this gives you an 
extra life. Controlling Pacman can be done 


ments are up, down, left and right. The 
Fire button activates things like the gun 
and other goodies which you can collect. 
There are three levels which are 
selected by pressing the number 1 to 3 r 1 
being the slow easy level and 3 the ultra 
fast. 

You can also have a two- player game 
by pressing the F 2 Key or just fl for one 
player. The Fetter E during the game tog- 
gles between musk and sound effects, 
and FI 0 is the pause key., 

PowerTracker 
Author; Wai Hung Liu 

PowerTracker is a music module player 
enabling you to load and play modules 
from quite a few different Tracker 
programs, such as SoundTratker x.x, 
Noisetracker x.x, Pnotracker 1 .0-2.1 b and 
Startrekker (four-channel only), 

it you have music modules created with 
programs other than those listed here 
then try loading them, the chances are 
they will still work. PowerTracker will also 
load pgwerpacked files, When you have

AboutClock 
Author: Stuart Davis 

t • r e tired of looking at that same old Workbench clock 
T*rr -- s program is for you. AboutClock displays the time 
r words but in a very laid back manner, so when It is 
- 5-tarn AboutClock will print on screen "it's nearly five to

< . .‘Cock will appear near to the top of the screen in a 
~ i oar which automatically starts displaying the time, 
:t-. otis . it your machine has not had its clock set cor- 
? : * ■ men AboutClock wi| be wrong. 

' ■ set your machine's clock, load your Workbench, go 
ne Fiefs drawer and select Time. This will Fetch up the

time accordingly. One thing to note - rf you don't have a 
battery- backed clock is that the changes you make will 
only last until you switch off your machine, 

AboutClock can either be loaded manually toy clicking 
on its icon or by adding it to your startup sequence, which 
wi-ll then automatically call up AboutClock every time you 
reset or switch on your machine. 

The command Lo call AboutClock up in your startup 
sequence is:

the familiar file requester from 
Workbench. 

Now insert your disk with the music 
module on that you wish to listen to, and 
select the file you want. Once loaded you 
can then press the Play gadget and away 
you go. 

With this program running directly 
from Workbench you can also load other 
applications while still listening to your 
music, but you must not load any other 
music package at the same time as this 
will result in your machine crashing. 

The Complete 
Amos Almanac 


This will send the entire document to 
your printer. There's no need to worry 
about printer prefs as the CoverDisk has 
a Generic printer driver which will pnnt 
out on virtually any printer, although it 
will only be in draft mode. 

On the CoverDisk we use MMPP to 
display documents as it is capable of 
handling the PowerPaeked files which 
we use. MMPP has a help option which 
can be called up while viewing hies by 
pressing the Help key, and pressing the 
Help key again takes you back to your 
document. 

Because all of the Hies on the 
CoverDisk are crunched you will have 
trouble trying to load them into other 
text readers which don't have the facility 
to load crunched files. 


GIF Datatype I 

Workbench 3 only 
Author : Steve the G 

GIF is only for use with the new WorkBench 3 machines, ie A1 200 and the A4000. GIF j 
is actually a data type which enables the Multi view program on WorkBench 3 to dis- 
play 256-colour GIF pictures. It also enables any program which « datatype-aware to 

read GIF files. . . 

Belore yog can use GIF you have to copy it to your WorkBench disk or to your hard 

drive - it cannot be used di rectly 1 rom this disk. 

There are three files to the GIF program which are all in the ACAonly draw. These 

are the GIF file itself, GIF .datatype and the GIF. doc. 

The GIF program itself should be copied into your DEVS:DATATYPE$ directory and 
the GIF datatype must be copied into your 5 YS:CLAS5/ DATATYPES directory. Copying 
these files can be achieved by dragging them into the appropriate drawers or by using 

To copy the files from the CoverDisk to your Workbench disk using CU, first boot 
your machine with your Workbench disk, then open up cither a Shell window or a CL I 
window. Remove your Workbench disk and replace it with the CoverDisk, then type: 

£*py tlOiUtllitfltHflioidyKIF to ipilMiflitittfli 
Cep} oftklkLlitHsWGAdnl^GlF.iofo » sys :1m/ Pi titles 
tapi dfD:Util1tlti.'tGA<>nljJilF-(l»t*tm t* 

If you have a hard drive then simply (dIIow the same instructions as above but 
remember to boot Horn your hard drive. 

Once you have installed these files in their correct position, just double dick on the 
GIF icon to activate the datatype. You should now be able to load and display GIF pic- 
tures like those commonly found on the PC. 

If you wish to access this datatype automatically every time you use MultiView, you 
have to use the Adddatatypes command. This will permanently add GIF to ihe list o! 
datatypes your MultiView can use. To do this open a shell window and type: 


ndddmtrpss 


Using this command will update all the datatypes you have in your DeWDatatypes 

drawer. , .. u 

Unfortunately when you load GIF picture file it can take quite a while. Also it you 

load a 256-colour GIF file with MultiView set to display in a Window, then you will only 
get as many colours as you have set Workbench to, so if Workbench is set to four 

colours then you will only 
get lour! 

If you want MultiView to 
display picture tiles on it* 
own screen enabling 256 
colours regardless of 
Workbench settings then 
you will have to alter its 
scan. This is quite easy - 
just dick once on its icon 
then select Information 
from Workbench's pull- 
down menus- 

Y oil W I ' I find a ® I I ' 1 AfuJf I v/rw merr pQwrfut tfiih t W* Gff 

information about _ 

MultiView on screen. |ust find the line which says "(screen)", click on it, edit il lo say 

’'screen" then dick on Save, MultiView will now load picture files and display them on 
its own screen- 



This month we r ve included an Amos text 
file which contains all of the Amos 
Almanac pages from the last tfl months. 
To view this file simply double dick on its 
icon, and the ffle will be displayed in the 
same style as the usual docs which are on 
the disk- 

If you wish to print out this document 
then double click on the documents icon 
to load and display it, making sure you 
have your printer switched on, and then 

press: 


March CoverDisk 


Unfortunately people with Workbench l.T or lower 
machines arc having some problems with last month s 
CoverDisk. The problem was with the startup sequence 
on the disk and a missing IT statement from the "C" 
directory. 

Jo this month we have included a small script fife 
which will make the adjustments required automatically 
to the March disk- 

To use this Flu file simply Bootup your machine with 
this month's CoverDisk in and then double dick on the 


Fla It icon. Your machine will then copy all the files It 
needs from this month s disk Into Its memory, and will 
then ask for iait month's CoverDisk (make sure you do 
this with a copy and not the original). Finally, it 
will proceed to copy all of the files across which are 

needed - 

If you then reboot your machine with last man Hi s 
disk everything shtuild work as normal. We offer our 
apologies to anyone who has been affected by this 

mistake.

The Amiga Computing CoverDisk is designed to be as 
simple to use as possible. Follow these instructions 
and you'll be up and running in no time! 


readers may 
difficulties using 
CoverDisk, so we 
included this 
: age to help you out, 
* we explain 
*ow to copy files 
■n one disk to 


another, how to copy 
the entire CoverDisk 
and how to de- 
archive programs. 

One of the first 
things you must do 
when get your 
CoverDisk is make a 


backup copy, then 
put the original 
CoverDisk away for 
safe keeping. As a 
rule you should also 
do this with the 
majority of your soft 
ware collection. 



How to make a backup 


. I the entire CoverDisk, load up your Workbench 
j :ien either dick once chi the CoverDisk icon and 
. ft! -'jplicate, or select Copy from the Workbench 
: r open CU/Shell and type; 

illicin FfcQH OfO; TD gfO; 

- r rrompled, put your CoverDisk (the source disk) in 
r\ iod be ready to replace It with your blank disk (the 
athjm disk). Follow the Amiga's onscreen prompts 
'he disk copy is completed. Now put the original 
i tit . n a safe place and use your backup.

Copying individual files 


ti ght at some point want to copy a single program 
t ; - i CoverDisk to your compilation. Workbench disk or 
vour hard drive, 

do this you'll need the COPY command:. As most 
--D sk programs are stashed away in their Own diret- 
I ano, trie quickest way to copy a program is to copy the 
- e directory at once. Use trie command; 

t<3Pf idi riEtdrj} TO I ntud E £ k> ILL 

m ’ • *■ | directory} is the full pathname of the directory 
* y a jh to copy, and fnewdisk} b the name of the disk 
ir-1 directory into which it wifi be copied. 

: v example, if you wanted to copy a utility called 
from CoverDisk 27 J s Utilities drawer to a directory 
i -J FRED on your Workbench disk,, you'd type; 

:*i »MEtDISlC2r:l9TILITIE3JrFHEI T0 UHUERCHl*VFiEt HL 

\ cemativeiy, you can click once on the FRED directory 
i and drag it across to the new disk's window. This 
■ j. the advantage of creating a new directory for you 
: copying the icon as weTL 

Once you have moved a particular program to where 
equire it you could experience some problems am- 
" 'q 'he program,, This is sometimes caused by the pro- 
r*m not being able to find files which it needs to run, 
i good example is the teat files on the CoverDisk. 
“”rse hi^vi been crunched using PowerPacker^ so when 
Eiy to copy them to another disk and then try to read 
:nem you can't unless you have also copied the 
: : . .erpacker library into your LIBS drawer. 







_ 



So if you have copied a program from the CoverDisk 
to your Work disk or hard drive make sure you also copy 
any other files the program requires, ie fonts, libraries,, 
device drivers and C commands. 


De 



Occasionally we have so many programs to lit onto 
the CoverDisk that we have to archive them. 
Archiving is where we take the entire contents of a 
disk and compress them into one file which is much 
smaller, giving us space to fit more programs onto 
the disk. 

Dearchiving programs which are on the CoverDisk 
is a very simple task, If a program has been archived 
then you will need a blank disk to dearchive it onto, 

Say we have archived a program called FRED, Vou 
simply double dick on FRED'S icon, and will he asked 
if you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to. Type 
u y* or "n* accordingly. 

Your computer wiH then copy the archived file 
into its memory and ask you to insert your blank 
disk. It will proceed to format the disk, and will then 
de-crunch the archived file onto your blank disk. 

Once this has been done you can simpty reboot 
your machine with the disk which contains thE 
dearchived program on it and then use the program 
as instructed in the CoverDisk pages. 

Note that If you have a Workbench 2 or upward 
machine you: must boot with the CoverDisk write- 
enabled to perform the dearchiving process. 



Workbench 3 



If you have a Workbench 3 machine, don’t worry - 
most if not all of the programs an the CoverDisk will 
work on your machines. 

If the program is specifically designed to work 
with Workbench 3 then you may have to copy the 
program to your hard drive or Workbench disk using 
the process described earlier on this page.

producing colour pic- 
tures the image will need to be split into 
red. green Arid blue components before 
being passed to the computer For 
reassembly into a full colour image. This 
can be achieved in two different ways - 
colour filters or colour splitters, 

Colour filters are used with black and 
white video cameras and a separate scan 


of the image needs to be made through 
each of three coloured gels one for 
red, one For green and one for blue. 

Colour splitters perform an identical 
task to filters, but do it electronically. So 
in order to digitise a colour video signal 
a colour splitter would be required 
between the video device and the digi- 


are choosing a digitiser. 

Some digitisers are capable of accept- 
ing Y/C (SVHS-type format) and. rarely, 
even RGB inputs and the results are usu- 
ally noticeably superior to digitisers 
which only accept composite video - 
though this Isn't always the case.

tiser, passing each individual 
colour component for conversion to 
digital data. So™ digitisers have inte- 
grated colour splitters, others require an 
externals uniL. 

The need lor colour splitting is common 
to all models of digitiser, but there is 
another important factor - the '"speed" ol 
the digitiser. In this respect there are two 
types - slow scan and fast scan which, as 
their names suggest, do exactly that. 

Slow scan digitisers take a few seconds 
(or sometimes even minutes with certain 
models) to grab their subjects because they 
digitise one section of the image at a time. 
This requires the desired image to be com* 
pietely motionless,, whether it is in fionl ol 
a camera or off videotape. 

Fast scan digitisers have one simple 
advantage over slow scan models - speed.. 
This is because they grab the image into a 
digital storage memory called a frame 
buffer and hold it there throughout the 
ensuing digitising process. 

Perfect 

The grab usually takes place in the lime 
it takes to display a single frame of video - 
1 /25th of a second - and from then on the 
image is at your disposal to grab and re- 
grab until you are happy with it, and you 
don't need to worry about the cat walking 
over your copy stand as you adjust the 
lighting, for that final, perfect look. 

Mind you, frame buffer technology costs 
extra, as you will see from the prices ol 
digitisers which use this technique - 
though there's no denyiny that for profes- 
sional use this is probably the only way to 
go. 

Once the image has been converted, 
into computer-accessible code the software 
really comes into its own. Each digitiser 
comes complete with its own unique soft* 
ware and each package contains features 
which are exclusive to that model. 

Most software includes some degree ol 
colour balancing and brightness/cofitrast 
control, while others have animation fea- 
tures, line-art modes, special save formats, 
cropping, residing and so on. 

However a digitiser operates, its ultimate

aim is to convert images from outside the 
Amiga into pictures inside it. So once an 
image has been digitised it can be 
imported into any program compatible 
with its file format 

for instance, many IFF images can be 
loaded into Deluxe Faint for animating, 
others might be loaded into 24-biL systems 
fqr further manipulation - the choice is 
yours- Whether for DTP, animation, desk- 
top video, presentation graphics, games 
production or cataloguing, digitising lulfils 
an important need for many computer 
users. 

If you've ever used a digitiser you' IS be 
aware that the maxim "you only get out 
what you put in" doesn't generally apply to 
digitising. 

There are good, reasons for this. The first 
is that Lhe image resolution of a standard 
Amiga (or more specifically its monitor or 
display device) cannot hope to approach 
the fine quality whkh can be achieved on 
paper or in photographs and films. 

The second is that in most cases it isn't 
possible to provide enough colours to fully 
represent the digitised image. The new AA 
chipset in the latest Amiga? has gone a 
long way to redressing this problem, but 
24 -bit graphics are still the only way of 


achieving the highest possible quality. 

Some programs offer dithering routines 
which create the illusion that an image 
contains more colours than it actually does, 
while others such as DCW use special dis- 
play techniques to show more colours. 

Additionally, if your Amiga has only a 
limited amount of memory it may be 
impossible to digitise and display images in 
anything but low resolution HAM (or even 
less), simply because ol the sheer size ol 
most digitised pictures. Twenty-four hit 
images can easily take over a megabyte of 
storage because of the vast amount o^ 
colour and detail contained in the average 



scene.

The original trail -bluing Amiga digitiser 
dating back to the mid-19fiiOs and reput* 
edly developed in a garage - but still capa- 
ble of producing excellent results. 

By current standards DigiView is the tor- 
toise of digitisers, though in Lenms of both 


Digitising tips 


• If you use a video camera make su r -. 
that you use plenty ol light (preferably 
daylight) and that whenever possible yoc 
white balance the camera before 
grabbing. 

# if you are using a camera and slo 1 .-.- 
scan digitiser ensure thal your image 
your camera and your lighting remar 
perfectly static during digitising, other 
wise the result will be a weird, blurry 
psychedelic mess. Breaking the rules can, 
however, result in some rather artistic 
results. 

§ If you are digitising From video use the 
best quality tape and deck you can la) 
your hands on and make sure that it to 
a rock-steady pause.. Noise and otlu ' 
glitches will show up in the finishes 



software features and image processing 
controls it still represents good value. 

In addition to producing "normal" IFF 
flies, Dig i View can save 21 -bit RGB files 
(which are almost as good as 24-bit 
Images) and can also ust 
an enhanced display mod* 
called DynarrticHiRes te 
produce great-looking 
though almost completely 
impractical, grabs. 

Many of DigiView's fea- 
tures have since been taker 
on by other digiLisers. It 
has a full range of colour, 
brightness, sharpness and 
contrast controls, three lev- 
els of dithering and othe* 
goodies such as negative, 
line art and quick preview 
modes. 

Additionally, though 
there are several PD and 
commercial programs 
which are undoubtedly 
better suited. DigiView car-

After the unage has been grabbed, 
colour palette, sharpness and RGB balance 
are chosen and Ihe image is re- rendered 
accordingly. Up to 4,0^6 colours are avail- 
able, depending on resolution, and the 
palette can be lacked to force subsequent 
scans to use the same colours as previous 
ones, which is useful if you plan on animat- 
ing a sequence with Deluxe Paint. 

DigiTiger II has no animation grabbing 
facilities though, so no chance of sequen- 
tial digitising here - at least not with the 
software I had. 

Sadly, the manual is written entirely in 
German, but the software fs available in 
English and is quite straightforward to use, 
so after a few experiments it is possible to 
get very good results, DigiTiger If is fast 
and proficient, but I still don't know if any- 
one has taken it up for retail over here. 

DCTV 

Digital Creations E499 

DCTV isn't simply a digitiser - it's a graph- 
ics display and manipulation system which 
just happens to include a digitiser, though 
it certainly isn't the cheapest way of grab- 
bing images if this is your one and only 
desire. 

One part of (he DCTV software is dedi- 
cated entirely to digitising and it rs very 
clear and easy to use. By selecting Camera 
or Tape the software is informed 
what kind of video source is 
connected, then iLs a 
matter of click- 
ing on the 
Scan button 
to see a real- 
time display 
of the 
incoming 
video. A further 
click and the image is captured in 
around ten seconds - since the DCTV digi- 
tise r is yet another from the slow scan 
school of grabbing, 

Various speed and quality settings are 
available if the grab isn't quite right. Once 
it is* it can be saved as RAW, 24-bit or 
DCTV display format directly or first have 
adjustments made to its colour saturation, 
tint, brightness, contrast, sharpness or RGB 
feveh, 

The grabbed image can be Further 
manipulated with DCTV's excellent paint 
program or processed and output as a 
"regular" IFF files from the Convert 
module. 

In fact, DCTV provides high quality digi- 





H ardware 



tising which really cannot be faulted, 
though Its composite video output isn't 
exactly scintillating. 

One further point - Ihe special DCTV 
display format means that images - and 
animations can be displayed directly in 


VLab 

Macro Systems 
Amiga Centre Scotland 



several million colours on standard moni- 
tors with composite video inputs and even 
played back from "'normal*' programs such 
as Deluxe Paint 

The images and animations have to be 
rendered in the special display format, 
which is supported by some programs, 
such as Imagine 2 - a 3D modelfing and 
animation program. For low-cost video 
work the DCTV is a fair buy. if you can put 
up with a fairly naff composite video 
output 

Thanks to Yuri Large at Alternative 
Image for the loan of his DCTV - they 
being in short supply at the time of writing.

VLab Par £382 
VLab (Internal) £341 


VLab fast-scan digitisers come in two 
flavours, though both have exactly the 
same functions. VLab Par is an external vi- 
sion which, like its internal Zorr o-slol sib- 
ling, offers impressive quality at a 
reasonable price, 

Once again, this is German technology 
and li was equally impressed by both ver- 
sions, Speed-wise, VLab Par is the slower of 
the two as it .s connected via the parallel 
port, rather than directly on the Amiga's 

buss, hut th-e advan- 
tages are that VLab 
Par can be used 
with any Amiga (so

long as it has at least Workbench 2.0 
in^taifc&d), 

Botih VLabs use a new format called 
YUV For initially staring the image after il 
has been grabbed, though it most then 
be convefted io a display able format, 
such as 24-bll IF F P HAM or Ham8- 

Vlab does this through software and 
the process can take several minutes, 
especial^ with hi-res overscan images on 
non-acceie rated machines* 

The VLab software is extremely flexible 
and is quite user-friendly, It's possible to 
have a mini video -screen showing the 
incoming pictures in black and wFiite, 
though the Par version struggles lo keep 
op at times.. 

Once grabbed you can sec a Preview 
to make sure you got the picture you 
wanted before converting it, and there 
are lots of choices for filtering the video 
signal, adjusting the size of the grab, 
deinterlacing the picture to remove 
motion jitters, setting the save format and 
plenty of Afiexx commands. 

To top it off, Vlab can grab sequences 
of images - though not every consecutive 
frame in real time. These could then be 
converted and made into an animation or 
used as a basis for retouching or roto- 
scoping them into a cartoon. 

In short, both VLabs are excellent 
frame-grabbers which can be highly rec- 
ommended, although a hard drive and 
accelerated Amiga ate needed to get the 
best out of them. Expect a Y/C version 
shortly for even better quality and r at 
long last, an English manual. 

ColourPic Plus 

JCL Business Systems 
Limited £699 

The ColourPic Plus is undoubtedly Ibe 
Rolls Royce of Amiga digittaers - with a 
price tag to malth, It lectures a whole 
range of hardware connections, with 
fO, Y/C and composite video inputs and 
RGB, composite video and UHF outputs 
(all o! which can be in use simultane- 
ously) and with fail-scanning to boot, 
ColourPic Plus offers plenty of scope for 
£he creatively-minded. 

Physically, this digitiser is by far the 
largest in this round^up find can sit com- 
fortably beneath a normal Amiga monitor 
„ horn where it can be connected to the 
Amiga's RGB and parallel portS- 

There are also external controls pro- 
vided for adjusting the brightness, con- 


Behind the scenes 

All the digitised images in this article were produced from 
VHS videotape from a video deck with good freeze frame 
capability. In each case the best quality image format in 
the most colours possible was used and the images were 
then converted to 320 x 256 24 bit for publication 

For digitisers without integrated colour splitters a 
Rom bo Colour Splitter was used, featuring images digi- 
tised from Samurai Pizza Cats 61991 Saban International 
N.V and Saban International Services Inc, ’-1991 Warner

irasT, -saLuiratiDn and hue (for NT5C users) 
of the incoming video signal. Regardless 
of whether U Is In use or not, the 
ColourPic Plus passes the Amigos RGB 
signal through to the monitor, so there's 
do need to be continually disconnecting 

it. 

Software-wise, the Colourpic Plus is 
also well provided for. In addition to the 

standard Colour Pic software (which is 
certainly no slouch) there is the Cabaret 
Plus program,, which contains an exten- 
sive range of digitising, animation, image 
processing and saving functions. 

With ColourPic Plus you only need one 
monitor, as a simple press of the spacebar 
flips between Amiga and video images 
and although only 64 ,.000 colours are 
used for the video image it is certainly the 
best quality preview on offer. 

Hitting a hotkey freezes an image into 
Lhe frame buffer before it is downloaded to 
the Amiga for storage or manipulation. It is 
also possible to load mages into the frame 
buffer, so letting them be displayed in up 
to 64,000 colours. 

Animation grab- 
bing can be done auto- 
matically from video 
tape, but there arf seri- 
ous limits which requite 
more outlay on extra 
ColourPic Plus memory. 
Without this, it is 
also impossible to grab 
In hi-res interlaced over- 
scan (eg 7 3-6 x 5B0), 
which means optimum 
quality camera grabs 
are out of the question. 


Vidi- Amiga 12 

Rombo Limited £99.95 

The Vidi- Amiga 12 represents terrific 
value for money and works with any 
Amiga, though an extra lead is required 
for connection to some models, 

Incra dlWy r it not only features a com- 
posite video input but, For noticeably 
improved quality a Y/C 
one as welb It’s also 
pretty quick on the 
draw and you might 
just be fooled into 
thinking that it is actu- 
ally a Fast scan digitiser 
when in reality it is a 
slow scan device. 

With its direct-to- 

your-Amlga-screen 

black and white pre- 
view mode it is easy to 
see what's happening 
on your videotape 
before grabbing an 
image. Software adjust- 
ments are available for 
colour, contrast and 
brightness and there is 
also a hardware bright- 
ness control. Colour 
grabbing ! is simple 
thanks to a built-in 
colour splitter. 

Vidi«Amiga12 can 
also do sequence grab- 


An M mid for 
whrfefo never 


bing, tor instance from videotape, *■- 
only in black and white (far speed), IN 
resulting grabs can be played back as » 
animation direct from the software s 
Carousel feature, which also lets the use' 
edit the current list at images stored - 
memory - allowing for si ides how- 1 ike 
sequences to be pul together, 

There is some bask Image-processing 
software on board, though it can onb 
currently be applied to freshly- grabbe: 
images and not to reloaded ones. Th 
may be about to change though, as » 
revised version of the software is due a-- 
lime row with significant changes to the 
Carousel, the addition of lull AA graph* 
mode support and more. 

Incidentally. I know that Video Masttf 
claims lo being Lhe first combined Amiga 
sound and vision digitiser, but I'm alsc 
pretty sure that the Vidi-Amiga 12 w« 
available In the last quarter of 1992 as : 
version with MegaMix Master built in 
just thought you'd like to know. 

Video Master 

MiCTOdeal £69.95 

The good news is that it is a dual-purpose 
digitiser which tan grab both video arc 
audio and it only costs £69.95, whic- 
makes it the cheapest such unit on the 
market, bar none. 

The bad news is that Video Master of ■ 
works with Amiga 500 and 500 Plus mod- 
els as it is engineered to slot exclusive 
mto the expansion port of Lhese model- - 
though 1 understand that a version r;- 
other Amigas is in the pipeline. 

Like DiqiView, the Video Master gat- 
her is of the mono, s low-scan, variety ana 
comes complete with a set of colour f - 
ters, External controls are available *:•

compile presentations from individual 
"films" and sound can be separately syn- 
chronised to action a feature which no 
other digitiser has, as tar as I know. 

Beware that Video Master Is something 
of a memory hog, so if you want to multi- 
task with it you should load any other 
software you need be Fore running the 
Video Master software itself, 

While I can't say that Vkfeo Master pre- 
sents anything special in either picture gr

intriguing and this price it should sup- 


ply many first-time or would-be DTVers 
with a low-cost platform to get a taste of 
the action, Some won't like it, but for 
many Video Master will provide the 
opportunity to have a lot of fun, 

It must be said that this list ol digitisers 
is not exhaustive. Specialised {and some- 
times rather expensive) graphics cards 
such as CVP's Impact Vision 24, G2\ 
VD200I and one or two others are also 
capable of frame grabbing - to broadcast 
quality in some cases, 

And in case you're wondering, it's just 


possible that the frame grabber/genlock 
for the GpalVLsion card will he available by 
the time you read this. 

As always, what you choose will 
depend upon a myriad of factors - how 
much money you have, what system you 
use, how professional you wish your 
results to be,.. 

One thing is for certain, though, and 
that is that - more so than any other com- 
puter - the Amiga has a digitising pack- 
age to suit every pocket and set of

Software 


Paul Austin previews a brand new 
presentation package that could put 
the sensational ScalaMM200 on the 
ropes - or maybe even the canvas!

A ^ter the rise and rise of the 
Scandinavian sensation Seal a r 
the presentation market looked 
,2 Pv what is r without doubt, the 
■ r-sekage in Ebe business. 

*’ j'OJIy some serious competition lias 
•m ji-f resented itself in the form of 
a package that takes a dramati- 
z ^enl approach to the art of presets 
t cut nevertheless remains a direct and 
opponent to its all-conquering 
counterpart. 

the opposition. Media Link doesn't 
■ simple wipes and fades - in fact, 
kdla style, the package boasts its 
- n on q# Scala's EX modules known as 


external devices, the package can also* add 
its own touches to the overall effect via its 
page design section which allows the cre- 
ation of graphics and: text in all Amiga 
modes, including AG A, 

When the pages are complete yet another 
familiar Scala option makes its appearance in 
the form of a huge selection of wipes and 
fades including an excellent variation on 
Scales super- impose which effortlessly 
replaces the existing image in a very video- 
esque crossfade between two images. 


Impressive 


- 1 appb are In all but name pretty 
>ntical to £Xs enabling the addition 
m laser discs, ARexx commands, 

X . immands, sound modules and sam- 
; -nations, CDTV and more. 

* re from employing the abilities of 


Choose your level 

- Hlkularty well thought-out element of the package 
* ti relation lo the user. Unlike many power packages 
■- re not thrown in at the deep end. In fact, thanks to 
spired bit of design, the software can be operated 
r* accordance to the particular needs and experience of 
iv p^f too at the controls, 

Fur example, for the complete novice the "test drive* 
^xle is the ideal starting point allowing even |he most 
r Tfiophobtc user to create a script via a limited nuitl- 
of Xapps inch as the anlm player, sample/ module 
. : zr and static picture viewer. 

For this basic selection you can still create a pretty 
missive show without running the risk of becoming 
-■ oged down in the complexities of timetode, external 
ar*i <es and the rest of MediaUnk's power features. 

Once you've taken your test drive to its logical limits 
3 U can step up to presentation, multimedia and finally 
- From this lofty position you can take complete 
'^trol of every aspect of the show including the soft- 
ware and the machine's potential as a central or satellite 
-vttote presentation/ information centre. 


Like its opponent, the number and variety 
of effects is impressive and again like its 
■counterpart Lhese tricks can be applied to 
amms and imported graphics with equal 
skill. 

However there dues appears One afea in 
which the newcomer may fail short in com- 
parison to Lhe champ. Although special 
effects can be lavished on complete pages 
there appears no way to 
apply them to individual 
elements within pages - 
unlike 'Sola which offers 
almost as many Special 
effects for text and brush 
introduction as It does for 
the pages themselves. 

Hiving had my Obliga- 
tory wtringe it must be 
stressed that the version 
presently in my sticky mitts 
is firmly at the beta stage. 
Incidentally, I have been 
assured by Erik Van Eykelen 
- a Lop dog at MediaLink 
Inc - that more work will 
be going into the text han- 
dling prior to release, 

Due to the aforemen- 
tioned "work in progress", 
I'm afraid well all have to 
wait for next month's AC 
before coming to any 



ACA grtrphki iff nrUtwr... 


definitive conclusions. As you may have 
guessed we're planning a big splash for the 
finished package in the next issue - don’t 
miss it if you're serious about multimedia, 
presentation and quality DTV1 

Apart from the expandability of the soft- 
ware via the growing band of Xapps, it also 
offers the ability to combine elements via 
d>reciory-%le script building complete with 
loops and para lie I events Such as music, 
samples and Xapps all playing their part in 
the action simultaneously. 

Unlike Sea la, Media Link doesn't have a 
vested interest in the high- end corporate 
market like Stala's big brother 
InfoChanneL tf you thought $caJaMM20G 
was expensive, IrtfoChartnel is enough to 
induce heart failure, 

Although Info-Channel does offer a big- 


ger selection of whistles and bells than its 
5cala sidekick, its primary goal is to offer a 
centralised network for satellite machines, 
all of which can be controlled either via 
comms or direct hardware connections. 

Admittedly it does a blinding job in Lhis 
role; however, even lor a small network of 
satellites with their essential dongles you're 
literally taking thousands of pounds lor the 
software alone. 

The creators of MediaUnk have obvi- 
ously targeted this area of the market as a 
real money-spinner and as a result every 
Media! ink comes with its own comms and 
satellite control elements built-in to the 
basic package. 

In addition the software itself is com- 
pletely unprotected and shows no sign of 
the dongle essential to every ScalaMM20Q 
and InfoChanneL 

According to Mr Van Eykelen, MediaUnk 
Inc have no qualms about registered users 
running the package on multiple machines 
- while employing the software's built-in 
comms potential as a means of central con- 
trol with scripts and commands being 
issued as and when required, 

Alas that's all that space will allow, but 
don't forget that AC will bring you an 
exclusive and dare I say it definitive review 
in next month's issue. Tune in next time to 
see if the all-conquering Sea la has indeed 
met its match...

slructed by following the tutorials found 
in Aladdin's manual. 

The downside is that no central con- 
trol over all animation elements is possi- 
ble, a consequence of the way in which 
Aladdin treats all objects. 

Every polygon has its own set of 
attributes, including colour, texture, IFF 
brushmaps, and even its own individual 
shading method. However, fn ese are 
scattered across several very busy 
requester screens, making control of a 
simple polygon a lengthy process. 


Power 


Aladdin olters almost complete control 
of every aspect of an object, but the user 
must hunt around to make the most of 
the package's power.. 

The textures feature, about which the 
manual is justly proud, enables the appli- 
cation of multiple textures to each poly- 
gon. As everything in Aladdin is tied to a 
timeline, it is possible to animate each 
texture, slip smoothly between one and 
another, and mess about with its individ- 
ual attributes, giving Aladdin even more 
control in this respect than oflered by 
Imagine 2 ,0. 

To illustrate this feature, the animation 
tutorial includes a spinning cube which 
morphs into a bump map and back, but

Qnfy either a horizon-ex pandin g pack- 
E ;r or a program with very unique tal- 
can expect to survive in such an 
fonment, but Aladdin 4D from 
^::oec Programming is actually an evo- 
a_ j ion of Draw 4D, its name changed 
resumably to remove any danger of 
: -fusion with structured drawing, 

#nd as such is not 
*L4ctly a new prod- 
Luckily, it 
:oes have 


one or two unique talents. 

Aladdin 4D takes neither the primitive 
nor the spline approach to modelling. 
Real 3D, for example, relies heavily on 
the use of building block "primitives'' 
such as spheres, cubes, and so on to 
quickly and easily build the basics before 
complex point editing is earned out but 
Aladdin otters no solid primitives and 
does not utilise splines. 

Only rectangles and arcs can be cre- 
ated automatically, any other shape 
being constructed using either point 
editing af tools such as sweep and 
extrude. 

This is rather annoying at first because 
though primitives are only one tool 
among many and cannot be relied on lor 
mere complex jobs, l hey are immeasur- 
ably useful when beginning a project 
From scratch and can take some of the 
drudqe out of 3D work. 

Smooth 

Users of Imagine and later version of 
Real ID will find that spline curves,, 
whether paths along which cameras and 
objects can smoothly move, or the rouLes 
along which simple objects can be 
extruded to produce complex pipes and 
so forth, quickly become essential tools. 

They make the creation of

objects and movements both possible 
and easy and have become a central part 
of many an artist's working ways. 

With the omission of spline curves and 
primitives, Aladdin 4D immediately rele- 
gates itsell to a supporting role as far as 
most serious 3D artists will be concerned. 

5ome may find the program's creation 
process to their liking, but the restrictions 
placed upon basic object creation are too 
tight to allow Aladdin to compete with 
its contemporaries. 

Other drawing tools are good, with 
ample control over rotation, sweeps, 
extrudes, and so on, and control over the 
creation space is good. Cameras can be 
jj laced at any point and total control ol 
the camera is possible, including multi- 
e targets with their own ins, ouu 
and zooms. 

A direct result of the lack of 
spline paths is that setting up a 
camera Night path is actually 
a lot easier than in any other 
package, even if the fin- 
ished path is less smooth. 

Creating animations is 
fairly easy, more so proba- 
bly than in either Real 3D 
or Imagine, and simple 
examples are quickly con-

own shading requester must be sum- 
moned so that it can be defined as a 
phong shaded object. 

When one considers that a gas is com- 
pletely useless without all these options 
turned on, it would seem the obvious - 
and helpful - thing to have them all 
automatically turned on when a gas is 
added. At the very least, the gas object 
should surely appear with its own phong 
shading and transparency settings at a 
default tor a decent gas. 

When gases are used, despite the fussy 
way Aladdin treats them, I hey are easily 
the program's most stunning feature and 
enable the creation of images which one 
would be hard pressed to match 
with any other package, W hat's more, 
gases are treated in exactly the same 
way as oLher polygons, which means 
they can be animated, morphed, and 


so on.

which change shape arid gradually settle 
down, leopards which really do change 
their spots, and Klinger spaceships 
which "de-cloak* complete with gradual 
fade-in and wobbly bits. 

The number of textures which can be 
used at any time during an animation is 
limited only to the user's patience and 
requirements. 

Similar attention has been paid to the 
use of attributes. A requester similar to 
the textures epic allows for changes in 
colour, reflectivity, transparency, selt-i no- 
mination, and much more, all controlled 
by the usual timeline. 

Ease in and ease out values can again 
be set for each change, and even 


whether or not an object receives or casts 
shadows can be set from one frame to 
the next, 

This sort of control is handy where, for 
example, a general overlight might cause 
enough shadow to slow down rendering 
without any real benefit to the image. 

Brighter 

Turning off an object's sensitivity to 
shadows until such time as it is needed, 
perhaps when a brighter light is turned 
on half way through an animation, effec- 
tively gives the user a choice over which 
parts of the image will be rendered using 
scanline techniques and which will ren- 
der in true ray tracing mode. The latter is 


What a gas! 


Rather than treat a gas as an attribute o( 
an existing object, such as the fog 
attribute used by Imagine or the method 
of adding fractal tea Lures, Aladdin cre- 
ates it as a cubic container whose den- 
siiy and internal colour is altered by the 
transparency and strength of the gas. 

When fractal turbulence is added r 
which itself can be of varying colour, 
density, and definition, the number of 
possible variations becomes infinite. 

In addition, gases can be spherical or 
can seem to emanate from any side of 
the container, and the container itself 
can be resized, 

Alternatively, using a bitmap on one 



Amiga Co mpuliitf April }9?3 




side of the container, a density map can 
be applied which can then be animated 
to make I he gas flicker exactly as the user 
requires, making possible stunningly real- 
istic candle flames and other effects. 

The candle example is simpiy a matter 
of settling on a fliine-like gas of the cor- 
rect size and colour, then applying a 
greyscale brush made of concentric rings 
of colour from white (dense) in the cen- 
tre to black on the outer ring. 

By animating the brush to make it 
expand and contract, the candle flame 
can be made to llicker, an effect which is 
virtually impossible in any other 
package- 


much slower, SO Light control over how 
much ray tracing is used comes in very 
handy. 

Other packages will, of course; allow 
the user to specify wh ether scan line or 
ray tracing is used in a global sense, but 
only Aladdin otters, such abject-to-object 
control. 

To avoid having the user set up an 
image like this every time, there are 
global controls for shadows, phong r and 
so on In the rendering options requester, 
so the Aladdin user has the best ol both 
worlds. 

Where Aladdin rails down in this 
respect is that it offers, in a sense, too 
many options. Now, before you all groan 
about journalists who are never satisfied, 
let me explain. 

True, many programs are criticised For 
offering little or no user control over the 
finished output, and it is a valid criticism 
levelled at everything from drawing pack- 
ages to adventure games,. However, 
when a package has a long list of com- 
plex features the programmers must 
make an effort to combine complexity 
with ease of use. 

The way in which Aladdin is structured 
means that far loo many requesters and 
menu choices must be struggled through 
in order to make changes. A good exam- 
ple oi this is the otherwise superb gas 
feature. 

When a gas object is added to a scene, 
the user must select it, go to iLs attributes 
requester and add some transparency, 
then turn on the global transparency and 
phong shading hags. Finally, the objects 


Flexibility 

Larger gases, such as effective suns 
complete with blazing corona or explo- 
sions, are just as effective, but the 
fact that the user can evoke a full 
range of effects down to candle flames 
or the flare from starship engines 
speaks highly of Aladdin's flexibility. 

With a little more thought towards 
putting this flexibility in the hands of the 
user rather than deep in the bowels of 
myriad requesters, the program would be 
much more enjoyable to use. 

Qne niggle about gases i^the 
extremely long time it takes to render 
them when full image quality is required. 
A certain amount of time consumption 
is inescapable due to the complex 
nature of 3D fractal calculations of 
this sort, but I can't help thinking that 
gas rendering times are still way 
too long. 

Waves are treated In a similar manner 
to gases in that they are effects in their 
own right rather than textures applied 
to a single polygon. It is possiblE to 
create a wave, either emanating 
spherically from a central point or 
progressing linearly across the 
image, which will affect all objects it 
encounters, 

As each object can have its sensitivity 
to waves set from within its own 
attributes requestef, the ability to create 
ripples in liquids while leaving solids 
unaffected and all with a single wave is 
again unique to Aladdin 4D. 

Waves are applied to an area of space 
just as gases are simply fractal manipula- 
tions of density and colour in a certain

r“rtlive in these situations, hut a lot of 
j'f+yl tweaking is required if the gas is 
3 i^Ow up the wave at all, and this leads

Ordinary textures, relying on a selec- 
tion of tiles, waves, and zig-zags are less

mprehensiv# enough to challenge the 
” ght of Real 3D or Imagine, and unless 
..dated fairly quickly will be left far 
behind by the latest releases of these two 
packages,. 

However, it offers the best gas effects 
*e ever seen in an Amiga package and 
should find an audience among the 3D 
ommunity, if only as an extra package 
□ reduce effects not otherwise possi-

some users, but don't expect Id see

3D 



Attributes Each object in the 3D 
space has a list ol characteristics, such as 
colour, hardness and so on, which 
define its basic appearance. Collectively, 
these are referred to us the object's 
attributes. 

Bump map A special kind of texture, 
bump mapping is a mathematical 
method of creating disturbance on a 
smooth surface to give it a less perfect 
appearance. Very over-used since its 
Inception, bump mapping is neverthe- 
less a very handy effect if used sparingly. 

Extrusion By extruding a circle, one 
can make a cylinder, or by extruding a 
square, a cube is born. Extrusion simply 
adds depth to a 3D image, but can be 
very useful if a program enables the 
extrusion of a cross section down a 
pathway, which can save a great deaf oF 
time when creating objects such as 
pipes of a complex shape or walls which 
bend round a corner, 

Gaits Because af their hazy and 
imprecise nature, these are very difficult 
to reproduce using ray tracing packages. 
The only successful way to create them 
is using fractal mathematics, which 
means the user can often spend ages 
rendering them and tweaking them to 
get the right result. 

Inverse kinematics a hot new jar- 
gon phrase which is applied to the tech- 
nique whereby natural movements are 
recreated in 3D, By creating joint! with 
their own movement restrictions and so 
on, the use of inverse kinematics makes 
possible the creation of, say r a human 
arm which actually moves like the real 
thing.. 

Mapping Generally speaking, map* 
ping applies to any technique whereby 
an effect is mathematically applied to a 
virtual surface. This includes brush map- 
ping, bump mapping, altitude mapping, 
and so on and includes a wide range of 
techniques and effects. 

Organic modelling The better ray 

tracers offer organic modelling, which is 
a technique for creating more realistic 
looking human ^aces, animals, cars, or 
anything which had soft, sweeping lines. 
There are many ways in which organic 
modelling can be accomplished, but 
generally speaking it involves giving the 
computer an outline of how Ihe object 
is supposed to appear, then telling it to 
add a smooth outer surface or "skin rf , 

PaLhs A path is a route in 3D space 
down which an object or a camera can 
be toFd to move. The advantage of 
paths is that the user can set out a com- 
plete movement for animation with just 
one action rather than have to tell the 


modellin 


buster 

computer where the object will be in 
every frame. The more control a user has 
over paths and their creation, the belter. 

Point editing Creating polygons and 
manipulating them is a IF very well, but for 
really derailed work, point editing Is the 
only way. It involves editing the individual 
points in a polygon by adding or dealing 
them, moving them, or sea ling/ro tali ng 
small areas of a polygon. 

Primitives These are just primitive 
objects such as spFieres, cubes, cones and 
so on, which many programs will create 
automatically to save the user the bother 
of creating such basic shapes time after 
time. Relying too heavily on them is a 
mistake, but they do help speed up the 
creation process. 

Scanline A ray tracing method which 
cuts down rendering time by ignoring Lite 
effects of one object on another and just 
rendering the colour of the objects. See 
tracing. 

Shading Methods vary from wireframe 
(no shading) through colour shade (sim- 
ple polygon shading for previews) to 
gouraud (pseudo ray-traced) and the ulti- 
mate phong shading. The latter is a math* 
ematical method for calculating all 
smooth curves and leads to the most real- 
istic images. 

Spline curves Curves which are 
defined by their axes and a mathematical 
equation, splines can be any shape or size 
and are always smooth. They thus make 
excellent paths for objects and cameras. 

Sweep One of the most common draw- 
ing tools, sweep enables the creation of a 
cross-section of an object which is then 
swept round in any angle up fo 360 
degrees to form a solid object. Similar to 
the lathe technique, sweep is ideal for 
chair legs, beer glasses, and any other 
round symmetrical object. 

Texture A texture is any effect which is 
applied to a surface in order Id change the 
colour or appearance of that subject. 
Textures can be mathematical (such as 
bump maps) or based on existing IFF 
images (such as brush mapping). In addi- 
tion, a texture can be as simple as a dot 
patLern oi the by now famous black and 
white tiles t 

Tracing The most maths- intensive and 
time-consuming method, tracing renders 
an image by tracking the light itself, fol- 
lowing it through glass objects, casting 
shadows on walls, and reflecting objects 
in each other. Traced images take much 
longer to render than scaniine images, 
but in certain circumstances - such as 
those Involving glass or chrome - they 
are of far higher quality.

Announcing Lapcat... 


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


Lapcat was designed for the NCI 00. Amstrad’s new Notepad Computer. To make file transfer easy something new 
was needed; the difficulties in sending files via the serial port arc well known - the problems of 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. 

file Lapcat software is built into the Amstrad NCI 00. The standard package consists of the Lapcat lead plus 
software on disk for the computer of your choice. This will enable you to transfer files between an NC ' 10 and your 
chosen computer, Lapcat is not just for NC100 owners because you can buy software to transfer between any two 
of the supported computers. No technical knowledge is needed.

I :~i numbers represented in decimal

~-e way to indicate the type of a

■ j- on character after the variable's

>f ; used to represent 16-bit integers, 
l : ! <nEegers r single precision 1 looting 
i 1 and double precision floating point 
1 jr Oers respectively, 

■ tor example, you wish to declare a 
f integer variable, initialise it to the 
i * ye 32,000 and then print its contents, 
mj could do it like this: 


HiSoft BASIC 



Paul Overaa continues his lucid introduction 
to this powerful programming language 


U5fcr_riUiberT=lZ1]QB 
p-fiSIT u&*!-_EUibir! 

The use of an explicit type identifier, such 
e t., is useful in that it reminds you of the 
of a variable, but many feel that 
t*v code becomes slightly harder to read. 

To avoid this HiSoft and many other 
Basics provide statements LbaL allow you 
■ a pre define the types of variables begin- 
1 with particular letters. One alterna- 
way of writing the previous example 
™c*xiid be: 

lEFflrt u 

mcr s iiibit =12901 

PUNT UitfjtUibtr 

Type declarations based on #, %, K t 
nd I can override a general DEFtype 
slatement and so many programmers will 
_ : c DEF1NT a-z near the start Of their pfo- 
j-jms to ensure that all variables whose 
.pes have not been explicitly declared, 
t;w? set up as 16-bit integers, (because 
-ese Basic numbers use the smallest 
i mount of space). 

As well as decimal numbers, HiSoft 
Basic lets you set «up variables using 
ary, octal or hexadecimal constants. All 
ju need to do is prefix the number coiv 
--nedl with &.B, hOj &H but obviously 
ie number must be meaningful for the 
.nosen base. 

Programmers frequently use additional 
umbering systems but since binary and 
"evaded m a I are the most important III 
restrict my comments to these only. 

In the decimal number system, ten dif- 
‘erenL symbols (the 
digits 0 to 9 indu- 
live) are used to 
represent numbers. 

Each digit in a num- 
ber is ten times 
more significant 
than the digit to its 
A ight, and ten times 
ess significant than 
the digit to its left 
This "ten times'" 
relationship that 
exists between the 
digits of alt decimal 

HiSoft Bail f 
(/fflnlliijf cr varlnblr 


numbers n obviously a fundamental part 
of the decimal numbering system - if, for 
example, we consider the number 27$ 
and write a full description of what each 
digit means we can see that it is just a 
convenient way of expressing I his sum: 
Going one better than this and, bearing in 

(2 s HI) * (7 i 10) * 5 

mind that any number raised to the 
power zero is unity, you can express each 
effective digit term as a product of one 
digit and a power oi ten like this; 

For decimal numbers, ten is known as 

2 1 D 

Mid * M ID t S J 10 

the radix, or base, of the numbering sys- 
tem but many other hascs are possible. 
Computers use binary,, ie base 2, numbers 
which consist of strings of Os and Is and 
again if you think of a binary number in 
terms of its explicit radix - 2 representa- 
tion it r s easy to see the relationship 
between the binary and decimal number 
systems; 


Computers use binary numbers internally 
because the two digits 0 and 1 relate 
directly to the possible states of bits within 
the memory hardware of most computer 
systems. Binary numbers are then inti- 
mately involved with a great many com- 
puting applications but, since they are not 
that easy for us humans to work with 
(because long strings of Os and 1 s are eas- 
ily mis-interpreted) a related radix scheme 
called hexadecimal is often used as an 
alternative. 

Hexadecimal numbers use a radix of 16 
and the 16 symbols used are the digits 0 
to 9 plus the letters A to f . Each column in 
a base 16 number therefore represents 
some power of the base. For example the 
decimal number 16 itself is written as 10 
hex, because: 

1 0 

19 Iei = 1 r 16 * 9 i 16 

16 t 9 = 16 rftdtiL 

Similarly IF hex would be: 

1 9 

ID Ms = 1 i U 4 is i 16 

+ 15 - 31 detliil 

The fact that Lhe bases of the binary 
and hexadecimal numbering systems are 
power related (two to the power of four 
equals 16) produces a special, and very 
useful, relationship between these two 
numbering systems - it allows one hex- 
adecimal digit to represent lour binary 
digits. 

Best of all the binary to hex conversion 
process is very easy to understand once 
you've learned the relations shown in 
TaWe 1, 

Ho w let's try a couple of conversions 
using the HiSoft Basic-style notation. To 
convert a hexadecimal number into binary 
form you just replace each hexadecimal 
digit with its group of four binary digits 
so, to convert a binary number to its hex 
form, you peel oh (from right to left) 
groups of four bits and replace them with

Music A 


You don't need a stash 
of cash to write serious 
music on the Amiga. 
Phil Morse shows you how 
to develop music with out 
the financial headache 


Music:

i 




on a 


Lf 


shoestring 


Y ou might well believe that mak- 
ing music on your Amiga is a 
costly and difficult process. Well, 
it you buy a synthesizer,, sound modules, 
multi-effects units, a portastudio, a sanv 
pier, an 5MPTE timeco-de generator and a 
decent set of commercial software, it is - 
very. 

But you can make stunning musk for 
ne*t to nothing, and team a lot more 
about song construction, sampling, sound 
balance and all the other skills that no 
amount of money can buy you, with a no- 
frills set-up, as I am aboul to describe in 
this article. 

And before you decide that any musk 
made on a basic Amiga will be tacky to 
some degree, a certain dance band have 
recorded song after song using just two 
Amigas, set up in a very simple way - and 
if such songs can hike up the top ten as 
theirs have, then the Amiga is most deli- 
niteiy here Id stay. 

Amiga vs ST 

For many, the Amiga is not the obvious 
choke for a music computer anyway, let 
alone one to attempt to make music on 
for a pittance. "Buy an ST!" they'll cry r 
*»t r s got a built-in Midi interface, and 
everyone who r s into music uses the Sir 
Luckily for Amiga owners, this com- 
monly-held misbelief - that the ST is the 
only music computer worth considering - 
doesn't stand up when you consider the 
facts. Barring the Amiga's lack of a Midi 
interface there is nothing that the ST can 
do that the Amiga can't do - better. 

The Amiga can multitask (meaning you 
can switch between music programs 
already present in memory) and has lar 
superior internal; sound (a boon to the 
shoestring user who can immediately start 
to make musk without any extra equip- 
ment at all). Loss obviously but equally 


importantly, the Amiga's underdog posi- 
tion in the music world (the "ST is betted 
myth has fooled many) means that there 
is much cheap support from enthusiasts, 
rather than commercially priced Support 
from large companies - all of which adds 
up in your favour should you be consider- 
ing taking control ol your Amiga's sound 


potential. Your first stEp into the music 
world will require very little extra hard- 
ware. This is because the Amiga has four 
channels ol sound already built in to it. 

This means that it can play four sepa- 
rate sounds at the same time. It is subject 
to certain limitations - the sounds are 
recorded in "eight-bit", which translated 


means that the quality is pretty good, but 
not CD quality. 

A standard A5GQ, A50Q Plus or A6Q0 
will do for the computer itself. The more 
memory the better, and a hard drive 
would be nice, but I use an A6GG with one 
floppy drive (the one built in) and the 
standard 1Mb of memory, and ! do quite 


The essential guide to what to buy 


There is not enough room here to cover all the cheap 
music software available for your Amiga - the Amiga's 
library might not have reached ST proportions yet, but 
it's certainly pretty large. 

instead, 1 have chosen a couple of good examples of 
each type of software covered, and detailed major fea- 
tures along with (he price (If not PD). The box at the end 
of the article gives addresses of suppliers. 

Trackers/sequencers 

At this price level, and to control just your Amiga's inter- 
nal sound, you're best off buying a tracker. Sequencers 
tend to be designed with Midi in mind - a system for 
controlling external musical instruments beyond the 
scope and brief of this article. 

However, if you plan to expand Lo a Midi setup later, 
by all means buy a Midi-compatible sequencer, because 
nearly all also control the Amiga's internal sounds,, and 
can load and save samples. 

Probably thE mast famous tracker is Teijo Kinunnen's 
GctaMED, Distributed by Amiganuls, you can get a PD 
version - vl - or alternatively the much-improved and 
highly recommended OtlaMED Pro, which has only 
recently been released, but costs £30 with the manual. To 


buy it without the manual costs £22, but unless you are 
an experienced user the manual is a good idea, as the 
documentation that comes with it on-disk concerns itself 
more with the program's new features and hbtory than 
how to u^ it. 

OctaMED is famous because it uses an ingenious chan- 
nel-sharing method to simulate eight channels of sound. 
This takes a lot of memory, arid to use all eight channels 
to their full will require you to expand your Amiga by sev- 
eral megabytes, not to mention the near-essential pur- 
chase of a hard drive Eo store all of your samples on. 

But the capacity is there, and if you were to buy 
OctaMED Pro it's unlikely that you'd outgrow it. 

Provided on the disk as well as the program 
itself is a player, which is used to play any songs you've 
written,, independently of the main program, This 
can be freely distributed by you along with your songs, so 
you can release your tunes into the PD and provide the 
means to play them without gaining permission from or 
paying anyone. 

Also on the disk am demo songs and samples to show 
what OctaMED is capable of, although I have to add that 
t r ve heard far better MED songs than the demos 
provided! 

It's not the most intuitive program, and it looks and 


feels cluttered until you've worked your way around all of 
its various features, but once you're used to it it'll present 
few problems. 

All in all, if you an afford the £30, OctaMED Pro is a 
very worthwhile investment. If you can't, consider getting 
vl, which is available from most major PD libraries for 
very little indeed. 

Alternatively, try SoumJTracker, which is currently up 
to v2 r 6, and available from major PD libraries. Another 
famous tracker which has been constantly upgraded 
and is row almost unrecognisable from the first 
version released many years ago, SoundTracker 
is a very competent, bread -and -butter, four- channel 
tracker, and one which is used all over the world, just like 
OctaMED. 

Also like QctaMED, thEre are many song modules 
available for it, and it comes with full on-disk documenta- 
tion detailing all of Its features and providing you with 
plenty of information to get started. 

Both ol these programs can save and load files from 
disk, use various sample formats and have enough univer- 
sality atiouL them to ensure that you won't find yourself 
incompatible with the rest of the world having purchased 
one or the other. Take you t pick - you won't go far 
wrong with either.

ft; h also very worthwhile investing in a 
: - pier. A sampler is a combined hard- 
* ire soFtware package which gives you 


the ability to play sounds into your Amiga 
from any source (microphone, CO player, 
tape, even TV and video), mess around 
with them, save them to floppy disk and 
the use them like the sounds purchasable 
ready- recorded- This gives you a huge 
degree of flexibility and 15 something 
musicians even ten years ago would have 
paid dearly for, 

Vou can get PD samplers, but as a piece 
of hardware is needed, and as they're 
really pretty cheap anyway, it's worth buy- 
ing a commercial one. 

You need something to listen to your 
music on, and there are a number ol 
options available here. To start with, 
there's nothing to stop you playing you* 
music through your TV or monitor, just as 
you currently listen to Amiga sound in this 
way. 

in recording studios, they have tinny, 
crack ly speaker set up just so that they 
can hear what the music they're spending 
thousands recording will sound like on 
really cheap equipment! 

But they also have high quality moni- 
toring, and if you take your music (and 
your ears) even ha If- seriously, you should 
consider plugging your Amiga's sound 
output into your stereo system or d good- 
sounding portable, in this way, you'll 



A pngr from the AM/FM mu jr 


hear a far truer representation of your 
music than the speakers in your moni- 
tor/TV can even hope to give you. Vou 
also give yourself the ability lo tape onto 
cassette anything you compose - great 
for demos* 

I mentioned earlier that the Amiga's 
tour internal sound channels are subject 
to certain limitations. One of those limita- 
tions is the fact that two channels play 
through the left-hand speaker (the white 
socket marked l AUDIO on the back ol 
your machine) and two play through the 
fight-hand Speaker (the red socket 
marked R AUDIO), 

This means that when playing music 
back through a decent hi-fi with speakers 


set apart, the effect will be rather like 
those esriy stereo records from the 60s, 
where the guitars were all on the left and 
the drums all on the right. 

Although sometimes useful - games 
programmers have learned how to make 
convincing missiles whoosh from left to 
right, for instance this is on the whole 
an extremely off-putting "feature". If 
you're playing a piano, you don't want it 
to j ust come out of just one speaker or 
the other. 

The solution ~ and one which, due lo 
the incredible flexibility of the purchase, 
you'll never regret - is to buy a small 
mixer. A mixer is a hardware device

Sample disks 

.i- pie disks am what they sound like - disks containing 
*ts of sampled instruments for you to load into your 
acker and use to put together songs. 

There are hundreds upon hundreds of sample disks 
i i iabie, from the most basic sounds (drums, pianos and 
. on) to the most exotic instruments to sounds so con- 
fd they could not possibly have come from any 
1 %ment in existence!; You can also get vocal samples,

k of samples every issue - tor example, a complete set 
■ samples "borrowed" from the Roland 707, or a top 
Uwar synth, or a set entitled "horror samples". 

you look hard enough, you can normally find sets of 
inks containing most of the samples from new synthesiz- 
-v v«y shortly after they are released. 

Although only eight-bit and not a patch an owning

instruments such as bassoons and pianos, A worthwhile

Samplers and 
sample processors 

Here it is best to avoid the public domain, and to go for 
one of the cheaper commercial packages. Microdeal 
are a good name for value-1 or- money software, and 
their AM AS II hard ware, ''software package is well worth a 
look. 

Retailing at £9 9.95, AM AS II comes in two parts. First 
is a highly useful wedge-shaped box with two ribbon 
connectors attached for your parallel and serial ports. 

This is a versatile little box, because it can not only 
accept inputs from an the usual twin -phono plugs (lor 
sampling in stereo Irom a CD player, for instance) but 
also from T/Bin jack plugs - like those found on personal 
stereos and some portable tape players. You can also 


plug a small microphone in here to sample voices! If this 
is not enough, the box is also a Midi interface - meaning 
that should you wish to expand your system in the 
future, there'll be no need to buy a separate Midi inter- 
lace. Even if Midi is not up your street, this box gives you 
the ability to plug; in a “master keyboard". 

You might find yourself getting peeved at having to 
play music on a keyboard as musically artificial as the 
Amiga's, and a master keyboard - a set of keys in a box, 
basically - gives you a professional keyboard which you 
can plug in and use ID play your Amiga's sound with, 

A MAS Us software is a bit gimmicky and flashy for my 
good, but it does the job and admittedly looks very 
pretty. You can mess around endlessly with samples, in 
either mono or stereo, and save them out to disk in a 
number of formats, so there will be one to match your 
chosen tracker. 

Good as st is, AM AS 11 isn't the cheapest on the mar- 
ket, and if you don't need the Midi capabilities of the 
harrixvare, look out for cheaper packages such as City 
Beat's Beat Studio, which comes with simpler hardware 
and a correspondingly cheaper price tag. Or look at 
Microdeal's Stereo Master, which comes with a cut-down 
cartridge and costs less than £40,

reigned to take a number of sound 
inputs, give you control over them (on a 
bask model usually just volume) and re 
output them mixed together as either 
mono or stereo output. 

By a little ingenious wiring, you can 
mix your Amiga's output so that the left 
and inght speakers can carry both sound 
channels, to any volume level you desire, 
thus imitating a true stereo effect, rather 
than the all-or-nothing offered by the 
standard Amiga minus extra hardware - 
see the box "Realistic mixing' 1 ' for more 
details. 

Cheap 

Diagram 1 shows In detail how to plug 
this hardware into your Amiga. You'll 
notice from the diagram that various 
leads and connectors are specified - these 
can be bought very cheaply from any 
electrical retailers such as Tandy, or if 
you're a dab- hand with a soldering iron, 
and want to save even more money, you 
could make them yourself, 

So, you've got your system set up -

manuals, and taking as active a part in 
them as you can - load the demos, and 
don't be scared to press buttons and

Realistic mixing 

As mentioned, a small mixer is really a very worthwhile investment - Irom the 
offset it will give you a huge degree of control over the balance and volume of 
your sound output, and will become more useful as you discover more ways of 
setting it up, more things to plug into it, more things to plug it into - not to 
mention revolutionising sound on games and other programs too. 

By far the most popular small mixer on the market, and one which crops up 
everywhere from bedrooms to mixing microphones on-stage to professional stu« 
dios. is the smallest model available from the Tandy chain of stores, monikered 
with the brand name Realistic 

This little beauty retails at not much more than £20, and has four channels in 
and two out (for the twin Inputs on your stereo or portable), and absolutely no 
Iritis. 

Diagram 1 shows how to set up such a mixer to bypass the problems o( your 
sound channels being separated when they emerge from the Amiga. 

You'll need two single phono to double mono quarter- Inch lack leads, which 
you may need to make yourself, although by using adaptors, standard leads can 
be made up to this specification for a few pounds extra. Your local 
electrkal/audio retailer should be able to advise. 

Volume 

These leads plug from the L- and 8 AUDIO sockets on your Amiga into the 
inputs shown on the diagram. You then plug two single phono to single quarter- 
inch jack leads from the L and ft outputs on She mixer to the AUK, VIDEO, CD or 
TAPE 2 Input on your hi Ti, /portable, and your wiring is complete. 

The reason you should use the quarter-inch jack sockets on the mixer instead 
of the apparently simpler phono inputs is because the jack sockets provide a 
higher output volume - In practice you'd find the output from the phono, or Sine, 
inputs too quiet to hear or record properly. 

The mixer lakes a single nine- volt battery which slots into a compartment an 
its underside, and you must remember to turn It oH when you've finished using it 

do this and the battery should last for months. 

In use, you now have two options. Set the switch on the mixer to STEREO and 
the first i wo faders decide how much of your Amiga's L- AUDIO output (two ol 
your channels) goes to the left and right-hand speakers respectively, the next 
two faders doing the same far the RAUDIQ output. So you effectively have as 
much control as is passible over the balance and volume of your machine's sound 
output. 

Should you wish your output to be sent equally to both speakers, select 
MONO on the mixer and adjust the faders to your desired volume levels 

Incidentally , while set to MONO you don't need to plug each Amiga channel 
into two mixer channels one will do, which frees two mixer channels to allow 
you to mix anything you wish with your Amiga's output. Now you can play along 
with favourite tapes or CDs!

CD survivalist 


frwn a Commodore products 
+ 0f about ten years since 1 bought my 
“~odore 64 in 1383, to my new 
jO, and 1 have been following the 
= I “* i evolution with enthusiasm horn its 
■?*> t rrt steps, As an Amiga user, 1 was 
^ailing for a CD-fiGM player compati- 
■ se with CDTV titles.. 

V?w there are two competitors on the 
- i::ive multimedia market, Philips and 
l :^modore, and I still believe in CDTV 
; ne ai l know the Amiga has nothing 

* .^7 about I ram the PC, but I worry. 
r ~ ips have much more advertising 

T' in Commodore, the CO- 1 player can 
Kodak Photo CDs and is preparing for 
j ^otk>n video, whereas CDTV has none 
f ""ese advantages, 

^*1 ps are also claiming that they've set 
■ ■ world standard lor interactive multi- 
" ■ s There are also supposed to he 
: i": lor hardware modules to allow CD-I 
t ad both CDTV and CD-ROM lilies. 

* the- face of such an aggressive mar- 
rq strategy, CDTV may suffocate, and 
i a slow agonising death just like 

- jTiax when it was Crushed under the 
■eqht of VNS. 

1 ! .-ybe Commodore is already working 


on CDTV 2? If not, my message to 
them is wake up and preserve 
their golden child from eco- 
nomic strangulation! 

A new machine is vital, and should 
have the AGA chipset, Workbench 3.0j 
the ability to read Kodak photo-CD, 
MPEG, and full motion video. 

They could even make it CD-I ■compat- 
ible if this is really going to become a 
world standard, and it should definitely 
have an "Amiga inside" logo such as the 
” Intel inside" used on PCs. 

If such a CD player appears, i'll buy it 
even if it is twice the price of other play- 
ers and doesn't lit in my A40O0I 

Philippe Dachmne, Charleroi, Belgium 

That's quite a wish list! To put your mind 
at ease. Commodore ore seriously consid- 
ering Photo- CD far CDTV, but have 
derided to wait until there's o big enough 
morJret far it, a cautious move which 
might turn out to he a good one it. 
despite wildly enthusiastic press reports, 
the pubik greets if the same way they 
greeted LaserDist and DAL 

As for MPEG, Commodore should be 
implementing this, as well as full motion 
video, some lime this year < Haw they 
Intend ta develop CDTV u a bit at a mys-

tery at the moment, hut the company's 
repeatedly stated commitment to CD- 
ROM technology is at least a good sign 
for the Mure, 

CDTV-2 is a development about whkh 
many have speculated and, though 
Commodore refuse to folk about it, usmg 
the AGA chips or even the AAA chips an a 
new CD machine wou/d make a /of of 
sense os juch o move i+otrid leave CD I 
standing. 

Until o large number of software 
bouses write far the AGA chips, however, 
and the software base builds up, don't 
expect to see CDTV take an board the new 
technology, 

Cue to subscribe 

I have recently read through the January 
issue of Amiga Computing and I was won- 
dering if it would be at all possible to pur- 
chase a hack issue from you? I borrowed 
that copy from a friend, so could you 
advise me on how to go about getting 
my own copy? 

C Bradford, Lincoln 

ffarf issues have been in great demand 
recently, mainly because AC has said out 
in many areas of the country, so we 'H 



. : the Amiga 1 200 is the evolution of the species? What about 
■"e A600? Will its days now become numbered? 

After reading about the A12GG in the January issue, it does 
'^aund impressive and it seems that it is better than the Atari 
falcon, at least in pnee. It sounds like the A600 is being left 
niies behind, 

Will software houses stop making games for the A500/A600 
n the future and just concentrate on 32-bit games? Will 
‘om mod ore turn the A6O0 into an A60G Plus by putting 
1 -kstart 3 and the new chips in it then try to sneak it onto the 
' drket like they did with the A50G Plus? Or will they drop the 
scice and make it a console beater? 

I feel we might all have made a big mistake by buying the 
-600 when, for only about fJJO more we could have had a 
m j<h better machine. Will the A60Q last the year out? 

S Mctfethme, Armadafe 

’ «, the A6O0 will fjprobcrbiy) last the year. It h o sad reflection of 
the Commodore-induced confusion rife in the Amiga market that 


s t&frteuv* 


- 


such a new machine h already 
seen as a dodo by most users. As 
for an ACA-equipped A600 f ! 
wouldn't rule it out, though rumours about an Amiga CD-bawrf 
4GA console shouid be treated os just that - rumours. 

One cerfajjrrty is that gomes will continue to be produced for 
the A600/A5O0 range far a long lime la come, There are mil- 
lions of these machines out there and they wilt continue to con- 
stitute the backbone of the Amigo games market far years. 

The mosf rigafficant change we may see is that some gomes 
wrfJ he playable only on the A 1200 (such as the new Harrier urn 
AVSB) and that many may appear in two versions, one with 
better graphics for the A J 200 and one for the aider machines. 

How the software companies will play it is yet to be made 
dear, but we con expect them fa try to capitalise on the high 
expectations of A120Q users who are waiting for 2S6-coiaur 
games and are prepared to pay aver the adds far them.

Route finder 


Could you please give me the address of 
any company that may produce a disk or 
disks similar to GB Route that will either 
cover a country as a whole or as singular 
areas? 1 am interested particularly in 
Europe, is anyone else? Could make an 
interesting CowerDisk, 

l Gregg, Crewkeme 

l don't know of any other decent route 
finder program an the Amiga, but if 
someone wants to create a European 
road map for GB Route, we ll be happy 
to put it on the Cover DM.

Amos cookbook 

I write to you because 1 need your help. I 
am learning to program in Amos, and I 
recently found out that youf magazine 
has a special page devoted Id Amos, so I 
looked into some old Issues and I found 
an interesting feature by Peter Hickman 
on how to program a Patman game. 

However, the article was continued in 
other issues, and that's exactly the prob- 
lem! I do not have those issues in my 
■possession and 1 would really like to have 
the remaining parts ot the feature, I 
would therefore be very grateful if you

Lend an ear 

My wife and 1 have a large video collec- 
tion and we enjoy watching them often, 
belt being hard of hearing my wife does 
not get the full enjoyment from them, 

I would like to be able to put subtitles 
on them for her. Other than two video 
recorders, what equipment would I need 
and how much am l looking at? Would a 
simple genlock do? 

I am new to the Amiga scene and am 
very grateful to everyone at AC tor all i he 
help and information l have gleaned from 
your magazine, Keep up the good work. 

Peter Badn'di, Durham 

The titling process you describe will be a 
lengthy one. You don't hove any video 
editing equipment, so you’d have to either 
do all the titling of one silting or carry 
out o lot of start and stop operations. This 
can be tricky, and synchronising the (ilffi 
the video will be 0 mafor headache. 


If you're prepared to do every 
thing of once, simply buy a tiffing 
package and a standard genlock. 

The Jfocgen unit (Silica P8I-J09 1 1 1 i) 
and fifg Alternative Scroller (Alternative 
Image 0533 440041 > should do the trick. 

Next, watch the film from start to end 
and decide which subtitles you need and 
when, then input these into your tithng 

package. 

tost, but not least, run video A, tape on 
video S, and keep the Amiga between the 
two with genlock in action and subtitles 
ready to pop up at the touch of a button 
The operation is simple, though time 
consuming, but you must remember that 
commercial videos cannot he copied in 
this woy without the permission of the 
copyright holder. 

Forward planning 

In your February 1992 edition, you had a 
section on computer-aided design m 
which Stewart Russell reviewed a CAD 
package called Plans v2.1 , 

( have the shareware version 1.0 and 
would like to obtain the commercial ver- 
sion complete with manual. 

However, I have beer unable to find a 
copy or even anyone with knowledge of 
the package in Australia. 

Could you please supply me with the 
name and address of a shop or agent 
which I can write to and arrange the pur- 
chase of Plans v2.17 

Son field, Nundnh, Australia 

So try, Ron, hut f haven't a clue where 
Plans 2. I tan be purchased, or even if If is 
itill in circulation , The article you speak of 


Scottish footie 


was printed over a year ago and the 
Amiga CAD world has moved on since 
then, but if one of our readers with knawl- 
edge of a Plans dealer would write with 
the answer, we’ll gladly pass it on. 

Clever CU 

Having read Richard Wilson’s letter in 
issue 57, I fell compelled to write in with 
a pearl of wisdom gleaned from my time 
using the CU with only one floppy drive. 

II you are unsure of the usage of a 
command, just type the command lol- 
loped by a space and a question mark, 
This has the effect of loading the com- 
mand into memory and informing you ot 
its usage, and the command s parameters 
can be entered without the Workbench 
disk in the drive, 

Take the case of the install command. 
Entering ’Install V will elicit the reply 
•DRIVE, NOBOOT, CHECK", and at this 
point the Workbench disk can be 
removed as the command is now in 
memory. Putting a disk in the drive and 


After reading the review in your February issue on Premier Manager 
I would totally agree with your reviewer's decision that the game 
looks and sounds good and is about the best footle management 

ilni going, 

Hawewr, there's aoe good mason 1 won't be buying this one or, 
more to Die point, any other foots sim, Why? Because all the soil- 
ware houses believe that all Amiga owners are English! 

Every football game is based on English clubs or the English 
ieague, What about us Scots up here? Is our game inferior? 

All you programmers in the software houses - let’s see a Scottish 
football sim or at least one with the option to choose a nafiwalrty- 

And remember - it's still two points lor a win up here. 

Di/rtcor? Me WMoms, Dunfermline 


Our Scottish editor would like it be known that he heartily agrees, 
though he did say that anyone who wanted a simulation of 
Dunfermline fC has to be a bit of a masochist unkss it's set during 
jock Stein's time at the dub. 

This sort of feeling, if translated Into either a boycott of biased 
products foot a course of action I'd recommend) or a petition 
from as many disgruntled Amiga Tuba' fans as possible ought pro- 
vide the incentive needed by software houses either to tweak exist- 
ing games or to think about doing another version for consumers 

north of the border. 

row couid just stick with Kick Off 2 and try to take Scotland to 
the World Cup final, of course (good fuck, poll - fd) 


typing "DFO:" will carry out the Install. 

Now lor some reader interest - yes, we 
would like a compilation of your program- 
ming features, in one booklet! 

Philip Bfirs, London 

That's o clever way around a right roya\ 
pain for the overage single floppy user, 
though ft will only work for one command. 

As for compiling our Almanac pages, check 
oat this month's CoverOisk for the Amiga 
Computing Amos cookbook. 

Driven mad 

I was totally horrified to find out recently 
that some external disk drives won t work 
with the A1 200, 

l mean, it's all very well when 
Commodore change the operating system 
and upgrade the graphics, but such pid- 
dlinqly small changes to the voltage out- 
put on the disk drive connector, causing 
misery to so many users? 

if the company had any respect at all 
for its existing users, they would offer to 
exchange the drives or at least give us 
some technical support. 

G Horton, Presto 

you're probably not atone to Ihe Amiga 
community in your reaction to the toteJt 
Commodore cork- up. Why the change was 
made is bard to soy as there seems no 
technical necessity . The suspicion is that 
cost culling was the only reason for ihe 
change, but we'll probably never know. 

When our technical editor phoned 
Commodore's engineering division in fcfi Hon 
Keynes to find out what had changed and 
why. Ihe initial response he go! was have 
we changed the drive port?", so don t be 
100 surprised It Commodore are slow in 
coming forward with a list of peripherals 
which might be affteted.

Software 



i nee the release of Workbench 
2.04 and its Compugraphit out- 
hoe fonts, the Amiga's conversion 
kta Intellifont technology has contim 
mi apace. 

jjsi about every well-dressed produc- 
■ package now has support for Agfa 
mdard fonts, a great improvement since 
t* 3 ays when only a tew top-end DTP 
: *iges had knowledge pt anything 
: -**■ than clunky old bitmaps. 

-owever, Agfa themselves (formally 
- Compu graphic) were slow to 
>zn he the ground-swell of support for 
tv M-nts, and for long the only Agfa-style 
available were PD or shareware 
- — Dies, of varying quality. The real 
tfr: I:i> ts at last available in the shape of 
v- -jniga Starter Pack. 

Containing 12 typefaces from Agfa's 
^chttkhjs collection, the starter pack is 

- ;--.jed a "Simpler", and as such 
i » a fair variety of fonts. In addition 

" rn e& Italic, Times Bold, and 

- - /irate Condensed (designed to sup- 
: - “enl CG Times and CG Triumvirate 
u-., lied with Workbench 2.04), a Few 
• : *; er fonts such as Branding iron and 
T ■ Avenue have found their way onto 

- package's four disks. 

Invitations 

01 limited appeal to the general DTP 
j: - these can be of use for party iitvi ta- 
iiois and other design jobs and serve as 
amd examples of the quality of the range 
t: s whole. 

■ ithout exception, official Agla fonts 
" i - e been lovingly crafted by their 
c*rs gners, whether new designs or con- 

- oiw from old hot metal favourites, 

' ■’> U always add a touch of class to a 

: reduction, 

'he main advantage of Agfa fonts, 
*c Aft Irom their being one of the two 
^ j i standards in the DTP world, Is that 
- r are not tied to PostScript but 
ined to work with any printer. When 
/rut to a 24-pin dot matrix printer or 
: -lolejet^ therefore, print quality is 

- arkably good, and excellent results are 
> hie even with a standard $-pin r 

. nly hard drive users wilt, unfortu- 


nately, benefit much from these fonts. 
Unlike an Amiga bitmap font, an Agfa out- 
line Font is defined by a mathematical lan- 
guage of sizes, angles, and radii, and 
therefore rakes up a fair amount of space 
on disk - over 100k for some of the more 
outlandish members of the family. To 
build a font library of any size, a hard 
drive js therefore a necessity rather than a 
luxury. 

As far as gripes are concerned, l was 
unimpressed to receive the wrong installer 
disk, which tried in vain to install tom- 
pfetely the wrong typefaces, and the 
thought of novice users left in the clutches 
of the bugged 2,0 4 release of the 
Fountain font installer program makes me 
shudder with an angst-like sympathy., 

Those with a little experience of the 
Amiga will be fine, but others might find a 
rival to the printer driver in the nightmare 
stakes, 

for the future, I'd like to see profes- 
sional Amiga users offered the same ser- 
vice enjoyed by their PC and Mac owning 
colleagues. Rather than throw the odd 
floppy-disk based crumb to the Amiga fra- 
ternity, merely scratching the surface of 
what is a gargantuan collection of fonts. 


IS DPaint IV as slow 
as we feared? Is 
there room for 
Agfa's Amiga 
Starter Fonts Pack 
on your hard disk? 
We look at these 
and more revisions 

Agfa should hasten Lo release a CDTV disc 
containing as many fonts as possible. 

The approach taken for other formats, 
CD-ROM enables the user to buy loots as 
he or she needs them by telephoning Agfa 
with a. credit card order in exchange for 
[he code number whsch will enable the 
font in question to be dragged off the CD 
and onto hard drive. Without such serious 
support, official Agfa fonts will continue to 


be swamped hy their shareware shadow- 
ers. Price for the Agfa Starter Pack is £32 
and it is available from Megatype on 025$ 
SSS’BS. A second pack, Video unlimited 
containing 25 popular fonts for video 
titling work, is available from the same dis- 
tributors priced £45, 

Directory 
Opus v4.0 

The only commercial disk manager avail- 
able lor the Amiga, Directory Opus h still 
the best, and release 4,0 stretches its lead 
even further, 

Despite the claims of SID 2 users that 
for a shareware fee one tan have all the 
features of Opus, the program continues 
to offer more features than any other util- 
ity of its kind. 

Latest additions to its list ot talents 
include the inevitable ACA support. When 
viewing files or animations, Opus will now 
open any ACA picture and supports all 
new screen depths and resolutions, giving 
it an immediate appeal to A 1200 owners. 

Other enhancements include enhanced

ARexx support and a new hotkey function. 
The former wilt be of use only to ihe 
ARexx nuts among us, but the ability to 
deline single keystroke short-cuts and run 
other programs simply by pressing, say, a 
function key, gives Opus a whole new 
dimension, 

A variety of cosmetic changes have 
been made, but other than improvements 
to what was already a friendly interface, 
and a lew tweaks to the user configuration 
features, little else has changed- 

Hard drive users, lor whom Directory 
Opus would be an ideal birthday present, 
should tali HiQ Ltd on 081 -909 2092, 


Previewed months ago, the release version ol DPaint IV AGA 
has at last gone on sale, though little has been changed since 

its first press viewing. 

However, as initial impressions 0< DPaint IV AGA were based 
on an unfinished preview program, It was difficult at the Um* 
to make judgements concerning the speed el which basic ope - 
ations were carried out- These ranged from slow to snail s pace 
in the original version, and many hoped lor improvements 
before the package was released to the buying public. 

The bad news h that DPaint IV is as sbw as ever, especially 
in the new Workbench 3.0 screen modes. Even when running 
on an A4QOO, HamB animations are turgid at best, and screen 


DPaint IV AGA 

refresh leaves a lot to be desired. Menus, requesters and basic 
minting tools all slow down dramatically as soon as more than 
64 colours are used, and on the A120Q, there are times when 

the situation becomes unbearable. 

Having said this, DPaint IV AGA is still the only complete 
AGA paint package dealing with HamB and animations, but lor 

£99 99 it must Surely be there tor the taking. 

If in its HamB mode at least, this program survives as ihe 
most popular Amiga art package, it will be due more to us sta- 
tus as a sacred cow than to the author's skill at implementing 
the new screen modes. 

Electronic Arts can be contacted on 0753 549442, 






HotLinks vl.l 


SolllDgik's dynamic data exchange syi 
tern, HotLinks, has had a chequered life so 
far, 1 hough recognised by many as a well 
thought-out system and designed with as 
much open-endedness as possible, it has 
found support with only a hamllnl ol 
third-party software houses. 

Version 1.0 of the HotLinks software, 
though good enough at its job, suffered 
from several niggling faults, so the i weans 
and improvements made for 1.1 are 
important to the user If not major items In 
their own right. 

Probably the biggest changes have 
taken place in BME, the bitmap editor, 
Though still restricted to bitmap files, the 
program will now load and edit Tiff Hi s 
in addition to the IFF and GIF formats 
originally supported. As TIFF is a popular 
lormar in the DTP world, its inclusion 
makes BME much more useful to the 
professional. 

An auto-trace leature has also been 
added through which HotLinks users can 
create DR2D structured drawings from IFF 


bitmaps. Though a format not much sup- 
ported these days, DR2D clip art can be 
used in both of SoftLogik's flagship pack- 
ages, PageStream and Art Expression, 

Auto trace can be an extremely useful 
tool when converting sketches or maps for 
use in a drawing or layout, and its addi- 

ikati is very welcome- 

PageLinei, the HotLinks text editor, has 
also been improved with direct support 
for Page Stream font lists, What this means 
is that the user can now summon the font 
manager screen to directly charge fonts in 
a document rather than just change style 

tags as in release 1-0. 

Function key support has been added 
so that the user can change font or style 
tag with a keypress, or standard text 
strings - such as the glossary feature 
found in Wordworth 2 - may be inserted 
at any paint in a document. Though still a 
text editor at heart, these and a number 
gf other more minor tweaks make 
PageLlner a much more usable program. 

HotLinks itself hasn't seen much 
change. Some ol the requesters have been 
simplified and pop up menus have been 
added to keep things simple, but the pro- 
gram, on the surface at least, works in

It may have been just me, but stability 
seems to have been improved over release

Whether you cjalM them software authoring 
packages (5AVs) or automatic application 
generators (AACs - only kidding), pack- 
ages such as Hyperbook, Foundation and 
CanDo are designed to make certain pro- 
gramming tasks easy for the complete 
novice, and there was a flurry ol interest in 
them before everyone figured out that 
complex tasks still required a certain 
amount of programming. 

CanDo v2 is the latest SAP, and 
improvements over vl .6 make it probably 
the most usable of the three. Possibly the 
most welcome change, though, is ihe 
vastly belter manual. Instead ol ihe thinish

booklet supplied with earlier revision 
CanDo now offers a 400-page nng-bou 
manual complete with extensive index a 
masses of Information on the program 
commands and functions. 

Examples and lull syntax information 
supplied lor all commands, so learning 
use CanDo on a professional level is mi 
easier than belore, when fishing ihrouir 
the example scripts was often khe best wa* 
to figure out a command s use. 

The number of commands and ARe 
functions supported has also b«i 
increased to the (point where CanDo c 
boast greater flexibility than any olh 
authoring package, though its contmix 
lack of direct control of CDTV, LaserCua 
and the like makes its multimedia author™ 
status a little suspect. 

Unlike Foundation, CanDo will not 
erate applications which directly addr 
such external devices, though if they 

controlled by ARexx-compalible software 

CanDo should be able to talk to then 
through the other program. 

Though falling short ol Lhe over-the-tq

Software 


Personal services 


S ince the release ot Amiga, The Next 
Generation - namely the A 1200 
and A40OG - most people have 
-fn waiting for the PC invasion as the 
J ■- are houses cash-in on the 256 screen 
; i"jn now offered as standard on both 
./ the above. 

\n obvious target for would-be imports 
■bvious-ly the games market with the 
: ethora of PC simulations being an obvl- 
target. However,, much tp my surprise 
: productivity package appears to be one 
' ‘he first to put its foot on the evolution- 
ary ladder. 

Although there are several clues as to 
■? software's alien upbringing, perhaps 
■~e strongest hint of its dubious past is 
ejected in the maximum colour range of 
_56 - in other words no Ham 8, In fact, 
-■fre’s no HAM" whatsoever. 



■ rav berp things simple. 256 totoun 
l on lb# Oitufor 


OK, I admit it sounds a bit naff but 

- eve it or not Personal Paint does have 
strengths. However before we examine 

■T* hot spots 111 get all the bad news out 
: J the way early. 

Unfortunately, along with no HAM, I'm 

■ _ jid animation is also obvious by its 

?nce. As far as application and painting 
concerned the package is almost identi- 
. ii to DPainl with lew surprises and 

* dually few disappointments. Li ke its 
. .'•jnterparl it isn't particularly quick but 

st appears par for the course with some 

■ F ne new AGA modes. 

Unusual 

although PPaint may have noticeable 
' C Tendencies, it must be said the inter- 
iice doesn't even hint at its unusual 
upbringing - which incidentally is being 

* ■ y denied by MicroFace, PPaint's UK 
astnbutors . 

At a glance P Paint looks every inch a 
' : :unt repika with the only difference 
-- ig a rather sad attempt at individuality 

- the form of a shunted toot box which 
- lurks on the left side of The screen. 
Although seemingly identical to DFa?nt r 

- aforesaid toolbox does hold a few scir- 
:tes with perhaps the most impressive 

- g the program's built-in image pro- 
. rssmg options. 


New paint package exposed! Paul Austin 
reveals a cheap and cheerful that doesn't 
mind offering a few extras 


Among the usual array of D Paint icons 
come a collection of 14 image processing 
tools which include old favourites such as 
dithering, sharpening, tint, texture, dark 
to light, fight to dark, emboss, Wur r edge 
detect, randomise and watercolour, most 
of which are repealed in various formats 
to build up the repertoire., 

In addition to application via the filled 
shape options, all of the effects can be 
applied directly to brushes via a pull down 
Of hotkey combination which instantly 
produces the image processing tile 
requester for process selection. 

Adequate 

Although all the processing tools work 
adequately it must be said that few are in 
the AOPro, Image Mr or ImageFX leayue, 
especially when at comes to processing 
speed which in some cases takes on near 
ray tracing proportions. Aside from image 


processing, another notable is the pro- 
grams multiple brush option which allows 
up to nine brushes to be used simultane- 
ously. 

A small figure nestled among the 
default pen sizes allows switching 
between brushes - a process that can be 
achieved far more gracefully vfa the 
numeric keypad. 

Although PPamt is a little lacking in cer- 
tain areas, printing isn r t one of them. In 
fact above all else P Paint hard copy has to 
be one of the strongest selling points of 
the package. 

A little earlier, the big guns of image 
processing had Lheir superior special 
effects held up as a benchmark. However 
the power of the big three don't come 
cheap and as far as PostScript output is 
concerned, ¥ Paint more than holds its 
own. 

When the printing option Is active 



HUS 

STOP 


Two fcutfHNii faxes on thi rttavt^ buf u/ui, no wujr m animate 


The full picture 

With cm* thing 4fid another Personal Paint Adds up to something of a 
mixed bag. Us affinity with ihe PC will be an attraction to many with sup 
port fear Crypt, CIF, PCX, < and of course ILftM file formats, allowing very 
easy flic transfer between machines. 

As you can it# from Iho example images, even n 256 colour picture can 
be pretty impressive, alt hough it must be said all the examples have been 
very carefully chosen to get the best from the available range. 

Obviously the lack of HAM and animation has to he a turn off. If you 
want to access PC graphics, import your creations Into DTP software or 
print direct to a PostScript printer, PPaint certainly has H* uses. 

In short, pretty good hut there could soon he better software available as 
Ihe influence of the AOA spreads into the market. 



Good aid Sonlt UrrjwJi'ii? i I'rj.n ■. 

□f srriaui dithering 

you're presented with both standee! and 
PostScript options, the latter of the two 
providing fust about all your hard copy 
could ever need. As you'd expect there 
are positive and negative options plus the 
ability to output a mirrored image. 

Below this initial selection await the DP! 
and l PI figures, a set of 16 spot settings, 
plus luggable output which sends your 
creations either direct to a PostScript 
printer, serial, parallel and perhaps must 
important of all, as a file which can then 
be imported into the DTP package of your 
choice, 

As the DTP fans may have guessed, an 
EPS Option is also included along with 
crops and manual feeds plus optional 
compression. 


Processing 

Like the basic controls, colour process^ 
ing is equally well catered for with CMYK, 
CMY and grey output plus UCR and GCR 
definition and lest we forget complete 
control over separation angles - phew... 

As you'd expect, standard printing is 
just as impressive with well thought out 
page layout options adding the icing to a 
print repertoire that can I be matched by 
any other program which comes even 
remotely close to the PPaifit asking price.

Paul Austin gets some help with still frame 
recording, and sizes up the cost of 
getting your artwork into print 


bly all too aware, to achieve 25fps in a 
video resolution - 7^6 x SfiO - means sin- 
gle frame recording is often the only way, 
with perhaps the only exceptions being 
anims which make the artistic compromise 
d limned movement. 

For example you could use a sialic cam- 
era position with only a small area of move- 
ment between each frame. However even 
with these restrictions it’s unlikeliy you'll 
attain speeds approaching 25fps unless 
you're running on a particularly powerful 
Amiga displaying lo-res interlaced 
HAMs/HamSs or DCTV images employing 
three-bit planes. 

So video spec animation is at best a diff i- 
cult undertaking, but il single frame is 
indeed the only option,, how can we mere 
mortals get in on the act? 

it you're planning to set up a single 
frame system ol your own there are several 


essential items on the shopping list, first ol 
which is a suitably well-blessed Amiga..,

whole hog and are willing and able to

W hen HamS hit the scene 
many so-called expects 
began busily nailing the 
coffin shut on the prolusion of 24-bit 
boards. As time passed it became painfully 
obvious that, although a massive improve- 
ment on the HAM of old Ham8 wasn't the 
be-all and end-all as many had hoped. 

first and foremost, fringing is still a fac- 
tor which in effect means the format is near 
useless as a backdrop for titling or Scala- 
style presentation - although it must be 
said that the 256 colours offered via the 
AGA <1o a great job in such situations. 

On the animation side, HamS again has 
its limitations and no matter how much 
tweaking ensues it still won't outperform 
Old-style HAM when il comes to playback 
on similar spec machines - even when 
identical resolutions and interlacing options 
are applied. 

To he fair to HamS there is a ray of hope 
in the form of the new anim3 lormat which 
is about to make its debut within ADPro 
2 , 2 . Although the existing Animi format is 
ideal for Workbench 1 ,2/13/2 it obviously

preferred hardware. 

On the Amiga side, an 
actefertied machine is really a 
must - with at least <TMb of

board. Although not strictly

or otherwise - running into 
hundreds or possibly thou-

'after. 

Aside from the machine 
eeH, control software for the 
-ecofding process is essential, 

Dm that particular score there are two 
readable options. 

The first is Personal SF C - an American 
import retailed hy those affable chaps at 
Amiga Centre Scotland. Not surprisingly,, 
considering Alternative are one of the UK 
-^.•Liters, Simpatica - the second option - is 
"‘eon's particular choice. As you can proba-

Because of the -’feature in the making" I 
-won't go into detail but in simple terms the 
Dask dilFerence is that Simpalica uses a 
-rrnl track and 5MPTE while Personal 
SrC employs 5 M PTE atone. 

In a nutshell, the difference means shal 
jfthough slightly less accurate and flexible 
•ban SMFTE, the control track option 
dered by Simpatica can work out consid- 
erably cheaper. 

This is pri manly because the software 
and connections are cheaper Ed start with 
i~.i that unlike Personal SFC, Simpatica 
tees not necessarily need a tlmecode gen- 
• rtorfreader to operate 
in other words, If your edit/recorder 
doesn't come with a built-in SMPTE gener- 
■::r reader you'll be forced to invest an 
additional £600+ for a standalone SMFTE 
iterator in order id sync the Amiga, 
Personal SFC and recorder together

ll still lile is more to your taste, Alternative can again come to your artistic rescue by putting 
your creations in print. Although on-screen imagery is great for the occasional took it can 
never match the impact a framed picture has on the usually disinterested bystander. 

It's a strange thing but if you show an image on-screen most people wi\\ utter the 
usual "oh that's nice. smashing lovely, doesn't it do anything then?*. 

However if you show the same image blown up and silling in a classy frame, the 
same person will invariably be utterly gobsmacked and insist that it was either bought or 
pinched from someone else. Strange, the effect a glossy print can have on the average 
punted 

As far as output and cost are concerned there are quite a few alternatives, the cheap- 
est of which is to output via slides using the Polaroid palette system which allows any 
standard Amiga graphic to be output as a none pin registered 35mm side. 

The only restriction is that slides can only be produced from old style Amiga images - 
excluding extra-half b rue and ove rscan. Pnces vary 1 quite dramatically depending on bulk 
but at worst a single side will cost £1 1.75 wtiile 20 and above will set you back [ust 
£2.35 a time,,

It must be stressed that any prospective 
buyer must ensure the VCR is a edit/record 
unit and not simply a standard playei as 
these are effectively useless For single frame 
applications, 

Assuming you're now kitted out with a 
powerful Amiga, control software and VCR, 
it's just a matter of time and talent before 
you'll be up there with 
the best of l hem, /

young scallywags, Henri UtJit 1 “ ea /™ w * 


and Co are more than 
happy to come to your artistic rescue and 
put your images onto tape for you - lor a 
small consideration, ol course.., 

On average the single frame recording 
option will set you back £100 per 500 
frames which translates into 20 seconds of 
animation recorded on Hi-Batid 5P tape 
which can then be copied onto VMS and S- 
VHS on request. 

Obviously with the average video size 
image approacFung I Mb or more, transfer- 
ring hies numbering into the hundreds isn't 
exactly straightforward, 

In an ideal world a Syquest removable 
hard disk would be the perfect solution but 
for most o i us floppies are the only practical 
option with perhaps [peg compression 
squeezing I he best out of the available stor- 
age space. 

Image formats are of 
course another con- 
sideration, Although 
Alternative will hap- 
pily accept any for- 
mat, all images going 


to tape will have Ld be converted Id IFF24s 
at some point, as this is Simpatka's default 
■ile Forma L. 

With this restriction in mind you could 
save some cash by supplying your artwork 
in a "hassle free" format. If a lot of image 
processing and man hours are required 
prior to recording, don't depend on the 
SOD frames for £100, as this is almost cer- 
tain to increase. 

If anything short of 24 bit simply doesn't 
cue the proverbial mustard, ouiput via an 
Alternative pin -registered 4000 line 35mm 
trannie could well be the one for you, 

Or you could go the whole hog and 
splash out on a 5 x 4in 4000 line pin regis- 
tered spectacular retail- 
ing at a staggering 
£1 1 7.50 a time - as 
opposed Id £14.40 lor 
the 35mm option. 

Obviously the 5 x 
4ins are fur profession- 
als who require the ulti- 
mate and are will to 
pay for it. The 35mm 
alternative, however, is 
well within the reach oF 
most. But for commer- 
cial U5F it's not advisable to go much higher 
that an 6 x lOin from a 35mm trannie, 

Nov. 4 before hordes of people write in 
with countless *Tve got 35mm prints the 
size of the Post Office Tower and they're 
smashin'*" stories. I'm working on the pre- 
teart that the end results are heading For the 
glossiest oF glossy magazines who expect 
completely faggie-free output with 
extremely well defined edging within the 
image. 

However, if the end results are merely 
for personal or portfolio use r 
35mm pictures 
can be blown 
up as high 


as 20 x. 1 6m and still provide wry accept- 
able results. At such a size you'd expect 
horrendous jaggies but surprisingly 
ertougFi Ihh isn't usually the case, as trari- 
nies by default land to add additional anti- 
aliasing which means big prints tend to 
look softer rather than jaggier. 

If you lancy you pics as trannies. 
Alternative will do the complete process 
for you,, producing the trannie, developing

results, I or this complete service, £100 will 
get you a 20 x 16in framed picture from 
the original 35mm or a x 12in version 
complete and ready lo hang for £50. 

Alas t hat's about all that space will 
allow so it only remains to thank Henri and 
all those at Alternative image for the copi- 
ous amounts of coffee, sandwiches, advice 
and of course valuable time spent teaching 
yours truly the irrtrh

With the introduction of the ACA 
chipset, CDTV users may feel left 
behind graphically. Julius Alexander 
looks at a Commodore-approved 
upgrade path to thousands of colours 


Keeping up with the 

Joneses 



DOV Fftr cjTirphkl may Hat i pair yaii iJirf, feuf rflC f flw a wait imprvvtm+nt aver HAM 


T he COTV is an unbelievably pow- 
erful system, but Moored in one 
key area. No matter where you 
;ok the graphics capabilities ol personal 
computers are improving at a dramatic 
rate. 

Yet the CDTV with its old style Amiga 
graphics chips has been left stranded, 
■^igh and dry. if you're a CDTV user you've 
probably looked at the ACA chipset oF the 
rew Amiga and wondered what the future 


will hold for you. WeH rest assured, 
Commodore aren't about to forget you. 
Working in dose collaboration with a 
develuper, they are set to unveil the 
Advanced Video Module, 

The AVM will fake the CDTV back into 
the mainstream of the Amiga community . 
In one card, AVM enables your CDTV to 
display thousands of colours at once. 

Where previously pictures were com- 
posed of just 32 colours ant of a possible 
maximum c( 4,Q96, AVM raises this to 
more than you can physically see! And it 
gets better still - it's not just still pictures 
that are enhanced, but alio moving 
(CDXtyFMV) sequences! 

Praise 

The AVM card is actually bas#d on an 
existing Amiga product, the famed DCTV 
This peripheral, which gives normal 
Amigas similar capabilities to the AVM- 
enhanced CDTV. received widespread 
praise in the Amiga press and I'm pleased 
to say that the CDTV version is just as 
good, 

Quite why the name was changed is 
anyone's guess - one thing's lor sure, 
COTV DCTV would have been one hell of 
a mouthful! 

Pitting AVM involves opening the CDTV 
and shotting the card into the internal 
expansion slot The CDTV expansion slot, 
for those not already aware, has a remov- 
able back panel Lhat allows cards to add 
new ports to the back of the CDTV. And 
this is just what the AVM does. Once fitted 


a new composite output, port is provided, 
but more of this later. 

Also coming from this back panel Is a 
cabte with a through connector at the 
end This connector is plugged into the 
RGB port, while still giving a through port! 
This technique allows the AVM hardware 


to see everything going through the RGB 
port without preventing its use. 

AVM-compalible software makes subtle 
changes to the pictures sent by the CDTV. 
These doctor d pictures are then pro- 
cessed by the AVM hardware and 
expanded into a "full colour" picture and 
in turn output through the new compos- 
ite port. Hence the need to capture the 
output first with the RGB port adaptor. 

The results once litted arr spectacular. 
Supplied with the preview model were a 
number of sample programs which 
showed off the extra colours. If the first 
AVM-compatible games that appear are as 
good as these demonstrations the AVM 
card has a rosy future! 

Unfortunately there are drawbacks in 
using composite rather than KGB output. 
Firstly, most TVs don't have a direct com- 
posite input. If you've got a video you 
may be able to go through the video and 
then on to the IV, but lor those without a 
video... alternatively many Amiga moni- 
tors do have a composite Input. 

Another problem is Lhat when using a 
monitor you will immediately notice a 


considerable drop in picture quality. 
Composite pictures are not as sharp as 
RGB, with the result that users of AVM will 
notice a dramatic decrease in picture qual- 
ity compared to normal Amiga monitor 
displays. 

Having said that, litis loss in quality is 
easily made up for by the increase in 
colour. In fact, within minutes you'll 
quickly forget the difference even exists. 
The vibrancy that the extra colours bring 
make any loss easily worthwhile! 

Having installed the AVM card all you’ll 
need to as the software to support your 
new gadget. This is where the single 
biggest problem of the AVM card lies. Vet 
it r s also the biggest potential opportunity 
for not just this card, but the future of the 
CDTV. 

Extra codes 

Only software written especially for 
AVM will be able to use the extra colours 
and capabilities of the card. This is 
because only software lhat is designed for 
AVM will have the extra codes necessary 
to generate the extra colours. 

Unfortunately this means that, for now 
at least, there is little or na practical use 
tor having an AVM card. However, and it r s 
a big however, Commodore are behind 
this card, and Commodore hold more 
than a little sway among the CDTV devel- 
oper community. As such you can expect 
to see a. lot of future CDTV titles that will 
support the card. 

Iif the games developers start incorpo- 
rating AVM multi-coloured pictures in 
their games, CDTV will have a library o^ 
CDTV software really worth having! 
Imagine what a company like Psygnosis 
with their graphical prowess will be able 
to with a pallet of millions... 

This why Commodore are so eager to 
see the AVM take off. Philips CD-I already 
has trouble competing with the CDTVs 
graphics capabilities - fit CDTVs with AVM 
cardSj and Philips will have a real problem 
on their hands! 

In short, the AVM card will do wonders 
for the CDTV as a system, but for individ- 
ual users,, it currently holds little attraction, 
A case of one small step for you and me, 
one large step for CDTV!

SCSI or IDE? 

I am the proud owner of an incredible and 
awesome A 1200 complete with a 1960 
monitor and an BO Mb hard drive. I must 
jay, the fast hard drive (BSQk/sec) and the 
At 200 sure put my old A500+ to shame! 
Bui on to my question. 

I purchased my hard drive separately 
From my computer and installed it myself 
no warranty speeches, please). The hard 
dove is a Conner 80Mb, revision 2.3?. i 
bought it from Hobhyte, and they gave me 
an A1200HD officia! Commodore install 
iiisk, v3,0. 

After F installed the drive and turned on 
:he computer, I booted horn floppy with 
my copy of WB, and when the screen came 
up there were no icons at all for the hard 
drive. 

I booted with the install disk and it did 
not recognise the drive.. I went to Define 
New and there are only two choices SCSI 
or XT and not IDE. J clicked on SCSI, and 
then on the read Conflg From drive gadget, 
and it read the dnve and all the specs. After 
:nat everything went well. 

The problem is that the computer thinks 
i is a SCSI device. What is the problem? 
4m i doing something wrong with the 
ns Lai I disk? Everything works extremely 
veil, but I am worried that I might damage 
the drive or the computer somehow, if it 
*eeps thinking it is a SCSI device. 

The hard drive is currently at SCSI 
address 0. Could it be that I have a SCSI 
rnterface? 

feus Reich, RAF Alcanbury 

■Vf of AC recently had to install a hard 
i rive frtto or? A 1200 and encountered 
*aclly the some problem as you did. After 
speaking to Commodore I wos fofd that the 
Amiga A12O0 circuit board con to ini or? IDE 
ntedace but the Amiga itself thinks this Is a 
SC5/ interface. 

Apparently this h because the chip which 
talks to external devices on the A J 200 orrfy 
■ Si addresses far St Sis and not IDt drives. 

This means that telling the install s oft- 
ire that you have a SCSI drive instead of 
" IDE one will do no harm whatsoever .

Commodore do not have an official Install

New user 

I have just bough L my fust ever Amiga, an 
A12G0 r and so far have found it to be a 
Fantastic machine. Perhaps because I have 
never used the WIMP system before, or 
any WorkBench other than 3,0, 1 have 
found it quite easy to get into using the 
system and finding out what does what. 


A1200 install 

The Cover Disk which Included Protect is probably ihe beat 
value for money yet on any computer magazine and this is 
certainly the best word processor 1 have so far used on an 
Amiga, 

I have however encountered a problem- in getting iho pro- 
gram Lo load from the hard disk on my Amiga A 1200, and 
was wondering if you can offer some assistance. 

i have used the hard disk installation scrip! to copy all the 
files successfully to my hard disk and have assigned the 
directory correctly but on loading from Workbench I gel the 
message 'Failed to open window 1920 * 2SG'\ 

The same message also appears H I try to load ihe pro 
gram from the floppy disk from Workbench but no! if 1 boot 
directly from the Floppy, fs there a missing file that hasn't 
been installed correctly? 

Barry Cook, Leeds 

The problem you are experiencing h no! actually down to 
the Cover Disk but your Workbench. We have had several 


disk needed 

phone calls about Ibis very problem, and alter some trouble 
found the answer. 

When you purchase an A 1 200 you do nol get a hard drive 
install disk - this Fs due to be released by Commodore any 
day now, So it appears that people are form ailing their hard 
drives and then simple dragging all their Work tie rub I lies 
from floppy across lo ihe hard drives* 

This procedure does not Install the Workbench correctly 
and then leads to all sons of complications later on. Winn 
we at AC did was boot up our A 1200 with the AAGOQ's install 
disk. This worked perfectly and now our A 1200 can load 
Protext directly from the hard drive, 

Obviously If you don't have an A4OO0 just lying around lor 
you to scrounge the install disk Irons then you are going lo 
have some trouble correcting this problem. 

P suggest you take your machine back to where you got it 
from or if you purchased your hard drive separately con tael 
I he suppliers and ask For a suitable Instill disk most rep 
utahlc companies are supplying the 


Modem mysteries 

I own an A50D r and soon an A1 200, and 
one of my friends owns a IBM with a 
modem, so he tells me. My question is - 
if I bought a modem for my computer, 
would l be able to link up with 
my Friend with the IBM? If so, how, 
and would I need to buy a spec fa I 
modem? 

Also as I will be soon upgiadrng Lo an 
A 1200, es this a good computer for use 
with modems? Are there any good 
books out Fo r the Amiga on camms? 

Andrew fames, Northampton 

The simple answer is r yes, you can quite 
simply connect your Amiga to a modem 
and talk to your friend's computer, even 
though (he two computers are of different 
types. When computers are talking 
through modems they oil use o common 
language. 

Vou will need fo gel hold of some good 
comms software though, which includes 
the ability la emulate terminal communi- 
cation. You should try some of the PD 
libraries who advertise in this magazine. 

As for a good book on Amigo comms, 
you car) gef vwluofjy any book on comms, 
as it doesn T have la be Amiga related. 


I do however have a few questions 
which i hope you can answer for me. 

1. Is there anywhere with a list of A12D0- 
campalihle software yet? (serious and 
games) 

2. What, in layman's terms, would the fit- 
ting of fast RAM via the PCMCIA slot 
achieve? 

3. Is there anywhere that 1 can gel an 
internal hard drive Fitted without losing 
my five-year warranty. 

A. Why is there a trap door at the back of 
my machine instead of the metal strip 
whicFi was referred ta in your review. 

5 Dolphtn, Lossiemouth 

As yet no-one has released a list of com- 
palible software for ihe A 1 200, but From 
what I have heard the problems with 
incompatible software an very small 
Indeed. It's best when purchasing soft- 
ware or hardware to ask the supplier il 
the product is compatible with the A12G0 
fust. 

fitting fast RAM into the PCMCIA slot 
on the side of your A 1200 wilt increase 
the total memory ynw hove available this 
will give you machine a larger working 
urea fo pfay with and generally improve 
Ir 1 our rnacbmes capabilities, 

PCMCIA cards are onfy I6*bit and 
with pour mocftfne bring 32-bft ibis will 
slaw you machine down, so it 's better to 
upgrade your memory with 32 -bit mem- 
ory which goes mfo the ex pans fan under- 
neath your machine. 

By the rime you read thi s quite a few 
companies will be offering official 
Commodore hard drive upgrades wbj'rb

Clip 


_.. r Art 

, would like to make a comment about 
the new Amiga Radio Station on the Sky 
Sports Channel. The one 1 heard was issue 
3 and to be honest with you it was a bit 

basic. 

for one l have owned an Amiga lor 
only three months (I've got a A 1 200) and 
it was getting repetitive, so what's it like 
for people who have years ol experience 
with an Amiga? 

Being (air though, a good 20 minutes 
of the 30 minute program was devoted 
to hard drives and I haven't got one yet, 
but I listened to it anyway, The best pan 
of the program and what makes it worth 
listening is about the last 10 minutes 
which is the news feature - it was bril- 
liant to be up to date on the news ol the 

Amiga- 

But putting all that aside it's brilliant 
to have a radio program devoted to 
Amigas and I'll stay a listener. 

Now for a completely separate issue. I 
would like to use my Amiga far compil- 
ing dip art on disks but I don't know 
how to. 1 was intending to buy a hand 
scanner and a genlock so I could get 
video pictures and pictures bom books 
and so on. 

But 1 read somewhere that you could 
buy a second-hand security camera and 
it would work the same as a camcorder 
does with the computer. If this is true 
would it cost me more to set up that sys- 
tem instead of buying a colour hand 
scanner and so on? 

Finally, what software do you need to 
compile clip art? I have heard that there 
is some available on public domain but 

which is the best? 

Crisfioo Ingram, Southport 

fjrit of aii, genlocks ore used for Overby- 
frig computer graphics over video pictures

A D 


end not for putting video pictures onto 
the Amigo. 

you're right you con buy a security 
camera and then digitise pictures but ywi 
wifi ofso need to buy o digitiser. These 
cost from around £69 upwards depend- 
ing if you wont real-time colour digiustng 
- although if you use video pictures you 
might run info copyright prohfems. 

As for compiling your clip Off onto disk 
you can just use say GPalnt to load the 
orf into and touch up, then you simple 
save the finished work out onto a fresh 

disk. 

Disk! which usually con loin toltecfrom 
of tfrp art are not self booting, so it s a 
simple matter of formatting a disk and 
(hen fust transferring the tiles you woni. 

Modems 

l have recently thought about buying a 
modem for my computer. Could you rec- 
ommend a certain model that is relatively 
last, and won't cost loo much? I am 
looking (or something that will cosi 
around £70-£l 30' 

l need It for home use, not lor busi- 
ness or anything. I would like something 
that would enable me to get in touch 
with people all over the UK, not necessar- 


ily the rest of the world. 

1 would like to be able to use a bulletin 
board, I read somewhere that the Supra 
2.A00 is supposed to be good, it only 
costs £70-£90 and I was wondering If that 
was because it was no good - what is 
your opinion? 

' Is the Supra 2400 or 2400+ compatible 
with the COTV, if not what is? Is it expen- 
sive to use a modem once n's bought? is 
it cheaper than a phone call? and how 
would l gel it installed in my home? 
Would I need a separate line to the nor- 
mal telephone line, or would il work on 

an extension or something? 

Sheriff Af-Om, Comberfey, 

firstly the Supra 2400 only runs at 2,40 0 
baud rate which is rather slow - you 
should be aiming for around 9,600 baud 
rate as the faster the baud rate the faster 

you cent download tiles. 

A good modem rn this speed range is 
(he Suora Fax Pius which you cart pick up 
for around £J3d-£l60. This modem is 
also capable of sending 0 fax, 

A/f modems should be compatible with 
the COTV but you wifi have to moke sure 
that the comms package you use is com- 
patible with Workbench T,3. If you have 
trouble finding a suitable comms package 


WB 3.0 in 256 colours 


I owned an Atari STE but only tor a short time - with ’he lack ■.

with a 5cart RGB input and the picture is very good. Would the

ihey display the Al 20Q'i 256 colours? Thanks,

A iol Of people are getting extremely confused about the 
Al200's2S6-coiourmode. 

Weil the answer is quite simple - yau can display Z5 6 
ccfours in any resolution but you do need certain types ol mon- 
itor to display certain resolutions. 

If os you say you only p lay games then the two monitors you 

mentioned will be OK, (his is because when games arrive which 
use 2S6 colours they wilt nol be in the very hi re s modes clue

Speech 

I am writing to you to raise a query 
over your recent publication Mastering 
toe Amiga, free with the February ed 
tirni of Amiga Computing 
Unfortunately this book has raise: 
more questions than It answered f at 
me, perhaps you can help, 

t have iutt bought an Amiga 1200. i 
am new to computing and saw your 
free guide as a useful to the poor dot

I was amazed to find that all 

I i x-nigas have a speech synthesiser and I 
I I had to do was type in a I 
tilga basic commands or shell com , 

Unfortunately Commodore did not I 
:e fit to provide me with Amiga Bus". I 
>r the A 1200. GK l thought 1 will use 
ie1i but the “narrator. device' is noi I 
! the devs directory of my j 
VorkBench 3 disk, Nor can I find it on I 
he Extras locale or Storage disks pro 
Jd/d though l admit 1 hardly know I 
low to look for them other than I 
'showing all files" from the pull down I 
riemi*. 

So ih* ilru chapter of your boot, 
says 1 can make my new computet 
talk, and l Woody welt can'd perhaps 

you can advise me. 

A Cfltherow, N Oevtm l 

Yes you're quite right don ^ 
the narrator, device or the Say pro- 
gram which you get with WB 1 - 2 , 13 
and 2 . 0 - We tried copying the device 
from one of our WB 2.0 machine* to 
the a 1200 along with the say pro- 
gram hut It failed to load. 

ft appears that Commodore have 
left the speech tacillfy off tht 
WorkBench 3.0 machines - but you're 
not missing much.

Now in it's third successful year! 



JUST AMIGA MONTHLY 


Established in the Autumn of 1990. Just Amiga Monthly was Ihe first UK 
Amiga magazine to have the foresight to cut out ihe gloss and the colour and 
concentrate on the applications and productivity aspect of the Amiga. Our 
motto from the start has been Guaranteed No Games, our goal being to help 
Amiga enthusiast lo get ihe best hom iheir machine®, catering for the out- 
and out beginner as well as the more experienced user. 

Our readers tell us we are achieving this goal admirably month alter month, 
providing them wrih important information that other maga? ne& miss, 

It's impossible to sum up in an advert all that the magazine covers; Ihe best 
description is probably "everything except games', including up 10 date 
hardware and software reviews, tuloriais and programming. But the absolute 
best way to find out is to buy the magazine and see tor yourseLf, 

And we are not atraid to practise whaS we preach - Ihe magazine is 
professionally produced using Amigas and Amiga software! Best oi all, its 
your magazine. Many articles are written by cur knowleckjable readers, and 
we positively encourage you to contribute with articles, letlers and problems 
for u$ to solve, 

Full Money Back Guaran tee; You may cancel your subscription at any 
time, for any reason, even after jusl one issue, and we will refund the cost of 
all unmailed issues, no questions asked 1 What have you got lo lose?

When looking for VGA style monitory check that the horizontal scan rales (kHz) 
Support I he resolutions you want. Most VGA triple i can monitors can only han- 
dle the VGA resolutions and not the Amiga resolutions. For all Amiga resolutions 
you'll need a monitor that can h findle horizontal scan rales from 1 5kHz to 
75kHz. 


If you just want nor 
mal Amiga Productivity 
mode or a flicker fixed 
display you'll need

- lh A5G0s and A600s this was easy - 
re ^solutions that were available were 
. - i for by several low cost monitors. 

Kitchen syncs 

Sow you may have thought buying a 
‘or was fairly simple. Alter all what 
r - possibly be difficult about using a 
- -i tor? Well rhere are difficulties and 
* all a question of syncs. Nah, not 
r en syncs, but the syncs used to gen- 
- _-r the picture, 

■ Jeo signals include Iwo synchronise 
a n signals (vertical and horizontal) that 
I :ne monitor how quickly the screen is

-red in He Hz, in turn affects the resold- 
display able, lower horizontal sync

i simple terms, imagine the sync 


you'll need a VGA-type monitor. And this 
is where the problems start to creep in. 

While these VGA monitors are triple 
sync and thus able lo display a variety ot 
different resolutions, they typically don't 
need a sync low enough to handle the 
Amiga's lower resolutions. Hence you 
have either two monitors (!) or have to 
put up with just the lower or higher reso- 
lutions, but not both,,. 

And even if you opt for the single 
monitor solution - which leaves you 
missing out half the graphics potential of 
your Amiga - life still isn't 
straightforward. 

You'll run into some interesting prob- 
lems, for instance, say you opt for a VGA 
monitor. Hie Amiga's start screen is auto- 
matically in the lower resolutions. So 
you'll need to tailor the startup sequence 
to change resolution to the higher modes 
before you can see anything. 

But how can you do this if you can't 
see the screen on your monitor in the 
first place? Great! YouVe just bounced 
several hundred quid off your Flexible 
friend only to find you need a television 
or another monitor before you can start 
using it! 

Luckily ifs not all Shat bad. Unknown 
to most, there is a solution that allows

monitor that shouldn't technically be 
able to handle them, 

Buried in the Screen Modes draw is a 
soup res option which takes the lower 


resolution modes and increases their hor- 
izontal frequency. 

This is basically a trick on Commodore's 
part, and allows the VGA monitors to dis- 
play the Amiga's lower resolutions. 

Ft's not a great solution, and doesn't 
always work. You can't lor instance use it 
with most games as it's a software patch 
and most commercial games insist on the 
Amiga being re- booled, thus losing the 
setting. 

Alas it's the only solution at present 
and definitely a kludge on Commodore's 
part. The only other solution is to buy 
one of the seriously expensive and also 
rare monitors that have a wide enough 
range of syncs to handle all the Amiga's 
resolutions. 

Commodore are rumoured to be 
working on a new monitor which will 
offer this capability while also being fairly 
low cost. What this space for details,, AC 
will have the news first! 





to be the gears of a car. You can't 
* . eed certain speeds without moving 
a gear. The lower the sync rate the 
■'iff the resolutions, or first gear for 
kjvt speeds. And so on, 

\qw think about how difficult it is for 
;jr manufacturer to add new gears to 
a :ar. The more gears you have, the 
teter you can go but the cost also goes

The same applies to monitors. On

Typical VGA monitors,, which are 
' pie syncs (ie they have three set syncs) 
:m display many more resolutions, 
rhile multisync monitors (almost any 
. nc rate) can handle an even greater 
mg*. 

But how does all this affect their use 
the Amiga 1200? Well the standard 
w ei resolution* of the Amiga are sup- 
reme d by the normal Philips SB 33 and 
”e Commodore 1QB45, 

These are single scan monitors and 
t -y such can't handle the higher resp- 
_t ons of the new AA chipset. For these 



If you're after a monitor for 
your new A1 200, things 
might be more difficult than 
you imagine, Andy Baker 
assesses the problems and

D o you live life in the fast lane? Are 
you looking for a scanner that's 
big Enough for any occasion, a 
x * r -i' II ieaw clients and friends gasping in 
If so the Epson GT-6500 is defir 
’■**> for you. 

I know there are a lot of scanners 
O' but lew if any can match the perior- 
-i~ce of this wolf in wolf's clothing. As 
. > ‘ rm go the CT-6500 ain't cheap, but as 
- r* quality costs. In this case there's not 
change out of £1,000 for the scanner 
an additional £130 tor the necessary 
* jOG Control software, 

As far as control is concerned you can't 
i ■ 'or much more than the services of 
’ ->G. As you'd expect from the creators of 
OPro, the Aft Department Scanner 
n (roller has been designed to integrate 
" 3 the overall APPro environment. 

Of course not everyone has ADRro so an 
additional stand-alone direct-tondisk version 
' package has been included for those a 
1 “I* tacking in the ADPno department. 
Although there are two versions, thank^ 

- y both are identical when it comes to 
iteration. The only difference is that the 
-DPro loader assimilates into the AD Pro 
environment allowing you to scan and pro 
rss newly acquired images directly. 

After the new loader takes its place 
among your existing repertoire, a quick re- 
root reveals a new Epson_ES3Q0C loader 
Surfing among your old favourites. 

Although the title Epson ES3MC doesn't 
-spire confidence, this one loader will oper- 
ate the entire range ol Epson scanners 
deluding the ES300C, ES6GOC, SESQOC, GT- 
5000, GT-65DQ and GT8000. And of course 
*nsi applies equally to the stand-alone 
software. 

Assuming the scanner is on and all con- 
nections are complete, the software will 
ocafce the scanner and default to the pre- 
■ «ew panel ready for initial positioning. 

Unlike most loaders the E5300C works 
along the lines of an ADPio Operator with 
the top of the panel displaying the size and 
offset of the scanning area. 

Below these await a togglable metric or 
mpenal button plus the final output size in 
uixeli - obviously this can vary considerably 
in relation to the chosen resolution and scan 


Colour correction 

first on the colour correction list comes 
a six position - plus or minus three - 
brightness toggle button, followed 
closely by a selection of five different 
Gamma presets. 

following this come four display 
options designed to give the best 
results on the specified display medium 
whether it be screen or paper. The 
options include CRT Display - alias 
screen display - dot matrix, thermal 
transfer and ink jet respectively. 

For mono exploits, lour halftone set- 
tings also await your command, with 
the Accept or Return To Preview 
option* adding the finishing touch. |ust 
hit the button,, si I back, and marvel at 
what a real quality product can 
provide. 



area. Next up comes the essential resolution 
adjuster plus yet another toggle button 
which switches between Keep Pixel and 
Keep Size. 

The latter simply retains the chosen reso- 
lution no matter what the scan area while 
the second reverses the process, tailoring the 
number of pixels to the specified resolution - 
effectively shrinking the scan area as the res- 
olution- increases, 

fieneath sits the current aspect ratio- fol- 
owed swiftly by yet another toggle which 
either Fixes or frees the scan window into the 
specified aspect thereby locking the existing 
scan rectangle in its present shape. As a 
result any subsequent scaling will operate 
simultaneously in both the X and V axis. 

As for the remaining buttons, things are 
pretty selt explanatory with options to open 
the scan area to its maximum A4 size plus a 



separate brightness control being 
the only notables. 

After image placement and scan 
area are set up r all that remains is to 
scan for a preview and if you're 
happy with that, accept the present 
settings and move on to the fine 
scan panel. 

After transfer to the finer side of 
the software things look pretty 
much the same but after a closer 
inspection the power of GT-6500 
socmi starts to become apparent. 

At the lop of the requester a few 
old Favourites from the preview 
screen make a second appearance in 
the form of the output pixel size in 
both, height and width. The afore- 
mentioned resolution toggle button 
makes another showing, ranging 
from 50 to a staggering 600dpi. 

Alongside this sits the scan mode 
toggle button which allows you to 
specify either full colour, grey or mono, 
scanned as 24-biE, S-bit and 1 -bit images 
respectively, 

Below sits yet another newcomer In the 
form of the zoom button which in effect 
auto-scales the image between 50 per cent 
and 200 per cent in increments ol One per 
cent. Although very handy for squeezing a 
scan into your available RAM, the scaling 
procedure doesn't interpolate the new 
image but merely throws away unwanted 
pixels. As a result you're generally better off 
using ADPro's more accurate scaling opera- 
tor whenever possible, 

|ust beneath the zoom, awaits the 
dreaded memory needed display which 
jumps dramatically as you alternate 
between scan modes and resize the scan 
area. 

As the desired RAM exceeds the actual

amount available the figures change from 
white to black with the record request top- 
ping half a gigabyte for a full colour, 
600dpi, A4, 24-bit scan! 

Obviously nobody will ever match a 
request of such magnitude but it does 
illustrate one prerequisite ol serious scan- 
ning, namely RAM and lots of it— 

To use the GT-6500 effectively you 
need at least 4Mb and in order to really 
take advantage of the scanner's potential, 
eight to TO Mb isn't unreasonable. 

For the very serious The GT-6500 
doesn't stop there, as an optional trans- 
parency scanner, automatic sheet feeder 
and OCR can be added as required. 


Paul Austin drools 
over the GT-6500, a 
scanner that sounds 
like a Ferrari, 
performs like 
a Ferrari but alas 
doesn't look quite as 
good on a key ring... 


Perhaps the biggest compliment that can 
be paid to the GT-6500 is the fact that on 
arrival, the first reaction was one of horror 
at the asking price. 

However after less than a hour in the 
sticky mitts of the AC team the word "bar- 
gain" was flying about like confetti. 

If you can afford it, buy it, but don't for- 
get you'll need a system that can match

T he usual post -Christmas quiet few 
months haven't stemmed the 
incredible How of PT> in* 0 lhli 
office. The sheer diversity is staggering - 
Ifom education to subversive literature, « 
seems that someone, some whefe is pre- 
pared to pul it out on PD- So tor a fresh

Lunchtime 3 
Edward's 
Revenge 

Lunchtime (Amiga) 

This is a highly irregular disk magazine 
with a crazy intro featuring some 
extremely dodgy Latin genus and *P«te 
names, which lead up to an original, Iresh 

and challenging disk magazine. 

Gloating over the fact that nothing m 
their magazine has anything at a' 1 l « ri{J 
with computers, Edward's Revenge's com- 
pilers have put together a set ot articles 
which - in both presentation and content 
- are very different from your usual user 

group-style magazines. 

Who could resist a short poem entitled 
Dark Thoughts on Hamsters? Or a tale 
called The Further Adventures ol God. 
When you start to read the story of 
Abdullah B Perkins, who comes to 
England to look for Salman Rushdie and 
ends up in what one can only assume is a 
mentally compromised position m the 
Magic Roundabout, you know that some- 
thing untoward is going on! 

Dunk's DTP 

Virus Free PD, 2970 

Short lor Dunk's Typing Programme, this 
is not a typing tutor, rather a very simple 
and educational DTP package, aimed 

squarely at children, 

n immediately reminded me of the 
Business Card Maker reviewed last issue, 
but with the emphasis firmly on fun. Like 
the Business Card Maker, it limits you to a 
number of simple, predefined layouts, 
Qivmq you control over the text you input, 
which typeface you use, what your illus- 
tration* look like and so on. When you ve 


A trio of top quality educational 
releases, some great animations, 
a dash of acid house and 
some

designed a number ol pages, you can 
assemble them to make a D1 P '’book . 

Presumably, having spent time and 
effort designing a number ol pages, it 
would be extremely rewarding for a child 
to see a book made up of his or her scrib- 

blings and ramblings, 

in keeping with its young/ educational 
slant, the program is peppered with 
runes, Space Invader-style noises and 
friendly, informal comments. 

The presentation is certainly very ongi 
nal - lor Instance, one of Lhe menus, enti- 
tled Musical Menu, lets you select Spare 
Me or Yes. Should you select Yes, you II 
asked whether you'd prefer pongs, pangs 


or pings! The major omission as far as I 
could tell is that you can't print a hard 
copy of anything you do, but you can 
save your files to, and load from, disk. As 
a practical DTP package, it's a failure, but 
as a well -presented, lun and educational 
introduction to DTP, it's the business. 

Tell the Time 

0«j& Vu L/122 

No prizes lor guessing the reason that this 
educational package exists! It starts with a 
very colourful, cartoon-like rural pictorial 
menu (phew!) which features a duck who 


flies rather unconvincingly to the icon 
the level you have chosen to play, ,r 
one to five. 

Level one, lor instance, features a si 
pie. analogue, 12-hour dock, whci 
hands turn for a while before stopping 
a certain time, which will be on the tw 
hall past, quarter to or quarter pas- 
hour from one to 1 2. You then se e 
using the mouse, a number from one 
f 2 for the hour, and then the correct 

lion of the hour. 

It's all very simple to do, all the nr 
things happen when you're doing * 
(the Sun smiles and shines a bit bright 
for instance) and when you've finished 
congratulates or commiserates with ■ 

personally - yes, this is one ot those 
grams that asks you foe your name belt 
you do (anything. 

On its owl this would have beer 
worthy little package, but the other 
conceal more, different games. Level tl 
contains Lhe classic 'If the train left 
station at 7.10pm to travel an BS mim 
journey..." -type questioning, but Chi 
actually is a train, and it actually mm 
chuffing out steam in a very Ivor t 
Engine-ish way when you gel the a™" 
right- 

' Which brings me to a gripe. It is ui 
ceptable lor a program which purport; 
teach the time to refer to nme mini ' 

past seven as "7:9"!

and at the worse, a child might be*

LCD Dreams 

17 Bit, 2356 

. ‘-aight outta Australia, a compilation of 
V r games presented with the usual nice 
r Efface, music and opening animation, 
.-■ever, this compilation is slightly drfler- 



ent, because rather than repackag- 
ing other people's games, all of the 
games here are written by the same 
pair of programmers. Gut whal are they 
like? 

Well, Octopus involves you trying to... 
no, ifs not with even telling you, 
because, due to its incredible simplicity, it 
is totally unplayable. Not an auspicious 
start. 

Parachute - an equally simple game 
which would appeal to the very young - 
is, although similar in design, a lot mote 
playable, involving you catching in a boat 
a number of parachutists who are jump- 
ing from a - presumably stricken - 
aeroplane, 

fire Attack and Oil Panic follow 
the same course, with varying degrees 
of success. These games actually 
reminded me of those early LCD 
hand-held arcade machines all right 
for what they were, but hardly 
likely to engage you for any length of 
time. 

As | say r a couple of these efforts would 
be quite good for children, but that's 
about the extent of it.

Deja Vu, L/119 

the trick with really good educational 
programs has always been to leach some- 
thing useful while fuoling the child lhaL 
he or she is doing something fun - a 
unique combination which computers 
have arguably embraced mare than any 
other teaching med ia oi recent years, 
this program continues that tradition 


in line style, offering a truly compelling 
platform -style game which on its own h 
quite enough to keep anyone (ie me) 
amused, before the educational bit has 
even kicked in. 

The gamers world is, in fact, a jungle, 
complete with waterfalls, trees, rocMates 
and general wild jungle greenery. You 
control a rhino who is extremely well 
drawn and animated. He must be, indeed,

Varied and variable are certainly the best two 
terms for this month s collection of demos, 
slideshows, animations and all things hands- 
otfy from the PD sector. 

And they don't come much weirder i 
than The Land Rover Slide Show Part 1 
(Mike Hillerby) which features an assort- 
ment of pictures of the farmer s tllX 
favoured mode of transport, all digi- 
tised from original photos using The Complete 
Colour Solution. 

What could have been an extremely sad, second- 
-rate idea Is, in Fact, quite a curiosity, mainly due to 
the high quality of the scans used and the interesting 
models and angles of the original photography, Mike 
includes an advert for his digitising service, loo, the

It s highly insubstantial Huff, but it only costs

ment of MED tunes, sound samples, Amos programs 
and graphics hies with every order - but can we for* 
give his dedicating the entire disk to "all the guys of 
Megaderh r 7 The jury is out... 

If It's finely detailed but unconvincingly animated 
superhero* you're after (see, 1 knew PB .) then 
Spider man (Virus Free PD, 1050) could be what you're 
looking for. 

Although this animation is not particularly life-like 
(can Splderman ever be life-like?), the graphics cer- 
tainly bear an uncanny resemblance to the afore- 
mentioned superhero. 

(It's got quite a neat system self-destruct 
sequence at the end, and a well-chosen set of 
colours which reflect the urban feel of 
Spkferman's patch pretty successfully. But 
ifs a bit long-winded, and is likely to appeal 
oniy to Fans, 

From spiders to frogs, butterflies and killer 
cars! The irreverantly tilled Savings Certificate 
Animation (17 Bit, 2172) follows in the foot- 
steps of other Bad Taste-style animations such as 
the quite wonderful Hedgehog cartoon from a 
couple of months ago. 

This time we're treated to a complete rip- take of a 
certain insurance company's advert on TV. It starts

with a tastefully-drawn 
cocoon developing 
into a caterpillar, 
growing wings and 
flitting away as an adult 
butterfly - only lobe har^ 
pooned by a predatory frog and his unfeasibly large 
tongue. 

I suppose there’s some kind of perverse natural 
justice going on there, but you can forget the ‘"natu- 
ral” and the “justice* 1 bits if attempting to explain 
why a car drives in, f Filing the whole screen and 
squashing the frog instantly. 

Doncha love animations? Saving the best till last, 
the Spacebars Demo (17 Bit f 2171} is a slab of pure 
class. To an inoffensive (which Is certainly not to say 
bland) left-field dance track, this animation shows 
various people in silhouette, outline or just plain 
weird effects, dancing themselves to oblivion against 
Increasingly weird backdrops. They ' J morph JP into 

shapes and colours, and 
the range of effects and 
techniques used in pro-

are large.

the largest sprite I've seen in a game tor a 
long time, 

The ba&ic aim is to wander around the 
world collecting letters which mate up a 
word. The word is given before you start 
a round, and the letters can be scattered 
anywhere in the jungle, 

OF course it r s not that simple - there 
m certain other animals, such as bats in 
sunglasses and killer birds - who are hell- 
bent on stopping you, and sap yauf 
energy should you come into contact 
with them, 

It's the nice touches which really make 
this program stand out. The capital letters 
are all hidden In a large cave, which is 
where you'll encounter the aforemen- 
tioned cool-dude bats. 

The sound effects are truly wonderful, 
with a triumphant "Yippeel" (hence the 
game's title) when you complete a word, 
and a disappointed (rather Ehan terror- 
stricken) ■"Qhr when you lose some 
energy. It is a little bit slow, but then it is 


an Amos game, and to be honest this is 
probably not a hindrance lor young chil- 
dren p who might struggle faced with a 
sprite who shifts around at Sonic the 
Hedgehog speed. 

I can't praise this program enough, tf 
you want a cheap, worthwhile and fun 
time-filler for your youngster^ you'd be 
mad to- spend money on a lull-priced 
package it you hadn't already ordered a 
copy 1 of Yippee. 


Oblivion 


17 Bit, 2364 

ll's defender! The hardy arcade classic 
gets re-born for about the three-hun- 
dredth time on the Amiga- However, this 
ii a rather sparkling and special version, 


ivn a 


Two quite different musk disks are 
before Lhe jury this month. First out of 
the bag is Sky board Music 1 (17 Sit, 
2352). Written by ice Cube (one would 
guess that it isn't the ke Cube!) this 
demo ha 5 thrown its card fight down 
on the table by the time you've reach 
the menu screen, 

With titles like Acid Snap, Rave Mix 
2, Crave -4 Rave and Total Rave ness, we 
can safely conclude that it's analogue 
synih samples and chopped up kiddies 
TV programs aplenty, No, we're not 
talking Barbara Streisand, 

What we are talking is some pretty 
interesting, if ultimately a little bland, 
reworidngs Of some famous Stuff, Best 
of the bunch Is Acid Snap, which is a 
stripped-to-lhc bone acid bouse 
remake ol Snap s radio friendly rave hit 

Rhythm is a Dancer. 

Crave-4-Have, with its terminally 
uncool moniker and age-old samples, 
does actually attempt to do something 
at least not copied with them, and the 
other tracks all contain at least one 
sequence or sample which prkks up 
your cars. 

So - the jury have weighed up the 
highly unoriginal concept and the old 
samples against the obvious spattering 
of good ideas which run through this 
demo like words through a stick t>l rock 
and decided - yes! It's a hit! Yippee! 

Ahem. And so to the second disk, 
Anarchy legalise tt 2 (17 Bit, IJ8M/S ■ 
two disks). U might sound under- 
groundy and ravey, but maybe the title 
is misleading. 

1 remember the last Anarchy collec- 
tion - It was all slick presentation, 
friendly user interlaces and nice if sim- 
ple graphics, but musically? Naah, it 
was wishy-washy nonsense. 

This, though, is a lot better. All eight 
tunes display a definite leaning towards 
jazi, a musical form which by its free- 



form nature must be rather hard to 
reproduce on coni p liters. 

However, with lhe help of their 
influences - the James Taylor Quartet 
and Brand New Heavies among others 
- Anarchy have put together a very 



QfcMtton; a ^¥0l rMfllifan 9/ ^ 
dat$k Effffld* ifame ptfcmler 


due to a rather stricter adherence Lo the 
look, sound and teel of the original than 
most of its predecessors. 

indeed, the authenticity stretches from 
(as far as my experience-battefed memory 
serves me) ail the right alien ships to the 
correct sequence of dots turning into 
your ship at the start oi every life, to the 
wonderful (at the lime) sound effects 
when you hit things and get hit. 

There's the map showing you what's 
going on off your immediate bit of the 
playing area, the mountains you can fly 


pleasing disk indeed. 

You are struck first by the sheer 
quality of the samples. They go to 
show just what B-bil is capable ol il 
handled correctly. The reverb on the 
snare drum has to be heard to be 
believed, and the guitars - those most 
devilish things to sample - are abso- 
lutely spot-on. 

However, the music nods towards the 
high-tech medium across which it Is 
being played by displaying a harder, 
technology-riddled lldc, lull of digital 
sound effects and unnatural weirdness. 

The result? A hybrid of jazz and elec- 
tronic music, well presented and 
sounding like sweet harmony from 
beginning to end, The jury say... a 
great big improvised ’hil!" 

If It's X Sin across, floppy, and plays 
music when you click on the right icon, 
1 want !u see It for consideration for 
this column, so keep those music disks 
coming in,

Colour free zone 


Problems can occur with some packages when creating faxes 
i J the printed page is generated with anything Other than a 
transparent background colour, which usually happens when 
the package's default colour scheme has been changed. 

In such cases the fax will have a solid light grey dithered 
pattern as its base colour, thus taking an age to transmit, but 
care with the colour palette can avert this danger. 

DTP packages such as PageSetter or PageStream are best 
suited to fax generation as the printed page will have zero 
background colour and can use [aggie-free Agfa fonts in 
combination with graphics, but wordprocessors should be 
perfectly acceptable. 

DP j in t and other art packages with a print option will also 
be intercepted if they print, making the transmission of 
maps, charts, and other graphics much quicker. 

The advantage of typing a fax, "printing" it, then sending 
it without leaving the keyboard lends a whole new aspect to 
electronic business communications. 


simple, and can be either 
automatic or manual. For 
automatic fax reception, 
the cJuLG-answer option 
musl be selected from the 
CPFax options screen and 
the modem itsek must 
ideally have a phone line 
of its own. 

Auto-answer works 
on a shared voce/fax line, 
but the prospect of pick- 
ing up the telephone and 
hearing the screech of a 
fax machine several times 
a day U enough to 
prompt most business 
us era to dedicate a line to 
the fax. Manual reception 
of faxes is accomplished! 
by clicking on the receive 


fa* button on CPFax's main screen, so there 
are no problems if a shared phone line Is 
used. CPFax will stay in receive mode until it 
hears another tax machine’s ID signal or 
until the user aborts. 

Once a fax has been received it can, of 
course, be printed or can be viewed from 
within GPFax if the user hasn't a printer or 
the time to commit the fax to hard copy. 

Utilising the scheduler option, the GPFax 
user can take advantage of an advanced fea- 
lune whereby any number of faxes can bg 
created and given their own transmission 
time. The scheduled faxes wiM Sit quietly in 
the out basket until the Amiga's dock tells 
them it J s time to go, at which juncture they 
automatically send themselves to their pre- 
determined destinations, 

As CP Fax's environment requester 
enables the user to decide how many retries 
will be made if a line is busy and how long a 
delay willl be left between each retry, it is 
possible to ensure that no fax will ever back 
up into another's Lime slot. Even in this 
unlikely event r however,, (he second fax will 
wait until the first has Finished before it tod- 


dles off on its own electronic voyage. 

Supra's FAXModem is neat, compact 
eminently usable, and lor the price is superb 
value for money, With a minimum of set-up 
hassle it worts cleanly and smoothly and 
offers the Amiga user a cost effective solu- 
tion For both Email and fax,

THE UNSTOPPABLE GAMES MACHINE. 




















Remember don't phone, it's Just for fun.. 


Captivating stuff? 


Captive was voted game of the year in 1 990 and is still remembered 
today ai one of the best role-playing games ever, Tony Crcwther, 
the game's creator, has been hard at wortt developing new technoT 
oqy to allow Him to create a segue). 

imaginatively tided Captive 2, it is based in the Z9th century anti 

is described as Cyberpunk role-playing. 

Apparently the graphics and gameplay have been improved ten 
i/rocs over, plus it? all be in 64 colours. That's almost twice as many 
as a normal Amiga game! Cori 

The world is now under the control of huge state corporations 
which have been abusing its resources and grinding it into a state of 
decay. Hey, that sounds more like modern day. never mind the 29th 
century. 

Anyway, one of these corporations is called BioCorp. BioCorp has 
a number oF droids which have become unreliable, ft was just sim- 
ple things tike going out and killing innocent civilians instead of 
computing data 

BioCorp decided that this would be bad publicity and could dam- 
age the business, so they have Falsely accused and imprisoned inno- 
cent people for the murcHef s that have taken plate 

You play the rate of Trltl from Captive I , You are once again in 
control of four droids, but this time you use them to rescue the peo- 
ple who have been imprisoned. 

The game is based around huge Futuristic cities with interlinking 


road systems It's like Blade Gunner, but m an RPG stylee. There are 
4,096 randomly generated cities to cackle, so it should keep you at 
your computer until you're old and grey. 

IWindscape say that It's scheduled For release in March 1993 and 
will probably cost you around £.30 There could also be a A1200 
specific version, but then again... 








Better the Divil you know 


Gremlin are in the svorks again, this ti with 
a Fiendrsh game called Util Divil. Three years 
in development, Litif Divil promises to be 
one of the most innovative and challenging 
interactive game quests ever devised. 

The game's star is known as Morris or 
Mad Mo to Ns friends. By chance, Morris 
finds out that the Lost City of the Under- 
world! is in hK cellar 

Mo, being quite inquisitive, decides to 
check it out. but is stopped when he comes 
across a granite door which Is covered in 
hieroglyphics. The door won t open until he 
decodes it. As he settles down to translate 
it. he nonces a pool of water and decides to 
take a quick, drink 

Whoops, probably the worst drink in the 
world. Morris begins to change into a myth 
tea I Divil, As the Divil, Morns can read the 
words ‘Those drinking from the pool will be 
doomed to roam the Lost City of the Under- 


world' on the door. Morris has to enter the 
city and find the Fountain of Normality to 
change Nmseff back. Hey, sounds like a 
good idea for a game. 

To achieve your gwi you have to negoti- 
ate dark tunnels and solve riendish puzzles. 
The game is split into five distinctive levels 
each containing ten puzzle rooms. If Li til 
DwrJ takes too long rn solving puzzles, he 


will be pursued by a creature known as the 
Entity araJ then tortured to death, Gulp 1 
Graphically Litil Divil looks very much in 
the style of Heimdali, but will probably be 
tons better. To be honest it could well be 
one of the hits Of 93 Gremlin plan to 
release the game in April and the price is 
still to be announced, but hey. I bet its 
£25 99, Go be a devif. 


EA and 
Ocean in 
tie-in 
shocker! 

Electronic Arts have Just 
announced a tie-in with Ocean. 
The Manchester-based software 
house are now allowed to re-pub- 
lish a number of Electronic Arts 
titles on their Hit Squad label. The 
titles involved will be repacked by 
Ocean and sold at between £7,99 
and 114.99. 

Mark Lewis, President of Elec- 
tronic Arts Europe, commented: 
‘Ocean's expertise in the area of 
re-release publishing is unrivalled 
in this industry. 

This is a significant move for 
Electronic Arts that acknowledges 
that budget publishing is becom- 
ing more specialised." 

Expect to see such hit titles as 
Populous, Budokan and The 
Immortal on the shelves very 
soon.

Toadly Excellent 


As well as releasing Captive 2, Mindscape are jtitt a-bout to release Battle 
toads - the game they promised vs way bade in September 1992, 

The screenshots you see here are the newest yet and it Ieohs as though 
it II he worth the wait* Uattletoads f a firm favourite with Nintendo Fans, 
feature* err, battling toads and hot platform and shoot- em-up action. 

Jf its half a* good as the Nintendo version At if be in contention For the 

coveted Gamer Gold award. 























Coming soon 

II are beavering away on the sequel to Project X* Provision- 
illy filled' X2.it \s Initially to be written for the A12Q0 with 
^ut-diiwn versions for the 500/600 arriving later* It will he simply 
.^believable say Team 17* Hmm r we shall see. 

Gremlin have afro announced plant to release a sequel to their 
-umber one hit smash Zool - Ninja of the Nth Dimension, Expect 
~t in the latter half of the year and probably humorously named 
Zool 2. 

More elasticated fun is on the way thanks to the boys and girls 
*i System 3 because Putty 2 is on the horizon. It seems that 
quel madness has gripped the whole computer industry. 
Probably the biggest sequel this year is coming at Christmas? 
Sensible Soccer 2 is going to render ail other soccer games null 
and void, or so Sensible Software supremo Chris Yates says. 
Apparently the new game Is going to have a play er/mari age f 
igle and will have a more global feel to ft. I can t wait. 

Rumours are flying around that the forthcoming Undiurn 2 
which Is due for a release in the next few months will feature 
music by top ambient dance band The Orb. 

iut The Orb are not the only stars to have their musk featured 
m a game. Its also rumoured that those cheeky jesters AJtemB 
are to appear in a computer game. Put do we believe them? 

Probably the most outrageous rumour is that Stourbridge sen- 
sations Pop Will Eat Itself will feature in a computer game entirely 
based on their top ten hit smash single Get The Girl, Kill The Bad- 
dies. I ll believe it when I see it. Grr. 

One of the most eagerly awaited games ever must be Apoca- 
lypse, The helicopter shoot- em-up was sent down the tubes when 
Mr Maxwell took the big dive into the iky, thus sending Mirror- 
soft down with him. 

A clever person at Virgin saw it and promptly snapped it up. 
h i been on the go for two years now is expected in late Febru- 
ary/early March. This could well be Virgin s best game yet. 

Not content with the char idee fund-raising Sleepwalker,, Ocean 
are on the warpath with will be the two of years biggest games - 
The first, Jurassic Park, is based on the film of the tame name. 

The film which is currently being directed by Steven Spielberg 
is believed to be the most expensive ever made, and is all about a 
safari park on a tropical Island where the animals are not pot-bei> 
Ned pigs and parrots, but gene! ica fly-engineered dinosaurs. 

Details are very scarce, but ocean say that it s not going to be 
just another platform game. 

The second game is called Lobo. Any decent comic fan will 
know who he is. Lobo is a superhero who for a certain price will 
bump off anything anywhere including other superheroes. 

For instance, he once took a disliking to Superman and almost 
Hilled him. Lobo is incredibly violent, and Ocean assure the world 
that the violence will not be toned down. Great stuff.

ically delivering a hefty tubbing to a 
small defenceless object before 
moving on to the dub house and dis- 
cussing the price of leaded windows

GRANDSLAM • £25.99 - 1 

flying around everywhere,. Defla- 
tion? No! No! The place is absolutely 
bloody packed! 

Men, women, children! All dressed 
in waterproofs! All dragging their 
clubs! Through puddles. Over fallen 
trees. Each one determined to com- 
plete a round of golf regardless of the 
possible cost to personal health or 
safety. So addicted are they to their 
sport that nothing else matters as 
they chase that elusive handicap 
lowering score, 

n is sad sights such at these which 
convince me that golf is a game 
played by obsessive maniacs, and my 
own prowess on the course would be 
best restricted to clicking a few but- 
tons in the comfort of my own home - 
a view shared by many It would seem, 
as the popularity of the many golf 
sims over the last couple of years has 
proven. 

In fact, with two truly excellent 
jolfers in the shape or Microprote 
Golf and PGA Tour already firm arm- 
chair favourites, it seemed a strange 
decision by Grandslam - not, in ail 
fairness, noted for their big name 
titles - to launch an attack down the 


meg * Mouse ■ Out now 

back nine (that's golfing jargon, that 

HI* 

But launch one they did, and with 
a name the site of Nick Faldo backing 
them up, there's no doubting the seri- 
ousness of Their challenge. 

Let's stop and chat about the 
graphics for a while. They re smart, 
Not much of a chat that, was it? I lf 
elaborate then. For the first time on a 
non-PC golfing sim what we have is 
actually a very reasonable facsimile of 
a course, complete with blades of 
grass, beautifully detailed trees, 
sandy bunkers, a clubhouse that looks 
like a clubhouse - the lot. 

In short, more - far, far more - than 
the usual "different shades of green 
and brown" approach adopted previ- 
ously. But where Nick Faldo's Champi- 
onship Golf really scores maximum 
points for presentation is in the 
sprite. 

Yes, the sprite - old Nick him set!, 
sporting an impressive array of tank 
tops, and basking in all his digitised 
glory. Such is the smoothness and 
realism, that when a shot is taken It s 
as though you are watching a piece of 
video footage, Very impressive 


indeed, and on seeing this shortly 
after booting up I really began to look 
forward to playing what seemed like 
a real contender for top spot on the 
Fairway Hit Parade. 

Ga me pi ay is where it's at though * 
never more important than in an 
affair such as this * so does NfCG hit 
a straight drive, or is it a bag of balls? 

Nobody s perfect, not even the 
master himself, so the best thing to 
do straight from the off is to have t 
bit of a practice- The coaching section 
j$ very comprehensive indeed, it 
needs to be - after alt, you're posing 
at Nick Faldo, and it just wouldn't do 
to go flubbing and whiffing your way 
around the course would it? Not good 
for the image, you see. 

In a practice session you have the 
option of tuning up your putting, 
bunker play, and several other poten 
tialJy problematic areas. As with the 
other sections, each situation is pre- 
sented by Nick, and additional infor 
■nation and advice can be gained at 
the click of a button. 

When you're happy with your 
prowess it s time to shoot a round for 
real. Up to four players can take pan 
in either stroke play |the person with 
the lowest overall score after one fuJi 
round is the winner} or match pN»< 
(competing hole by hole). 

If you have a bad case of BO ane 
are consequently friendless, don't silt 
your wrists just yet, because there it 
the choice of competing against com- 
puter opponents, or indeed playing 
on your own. 

The eight compo opponents rang; 
from the dodgy Davey Divot to Nic» 
Faldo - not a bad guy to have on your 
side in the matchplay model 

One disappointment is that there : 
only a choice of two courses, at 
opposed to the four and six in PGA 
and Mtcroprose respectively. We are

Presentation during a round is,

-aur ball and dub selection. These are 
: smething of an innovation - far 
-'ore effective than previous 
methods. 

One thing I haven't mentioned yet 
■ and it is quite a drawback - is the 
antral method of the swlngometer- 
‘*\nq. for some bizarre reason the 
: r og rammers have implemented a

eft, its a bugger to get to grips with!

arrows - another innovation], the 
power bar appears, sporting two 
shaded sections. 

The first - tiny - section is for wrist 
map, adding a few extra yards to a 
successful shot, and is advisable for 
experienced prayers only, 

The second, all -important shaded 
bit is the accuracy point, and in order 
to carry out a true shot the erstwhile 
golfer needs to click twice within the 
con fines of this miniscule port ion. An 
error to either side results In excess 
hook or fade, and a near certain trek 
into the rough. 

Sizes of his accuracy point vary, 
dependant upon club chosen, per- 
centage power, and whether or not 
the player is in professional or ama- 
teur mode. 

This method was apparently 
decided upon to add realism, and I 
guess it succeeds, since anyone who's 
tried first time to drive straight down 
the fairway will know it isn't very 
likely. The realism factor Is carried 
throughout the game; 
for instance, when in 
heavy rough, nothing 
but a very low iron or 
pitching wedge will 
see the ball safely back 
onto the fairway - 
unlike in other games 
perhaps, where a fQO- 
yarder could be 
achieved even from the 
sand. 

Also, the more Suc- 
cess you enjoy with a 
particular club, the 
longer the accuracy 
point gets, allowing 
you to "improve' as 
you would with prac- 
tice In the real thing.. 

Putting is easier lo 
come to terms with - 




Pulling caujd 
fr* better, bin 
true pop-out 
menus are lop 


simplistic green contours appear 
when aiming for the hole, and a much 
simpler power bar conies into opera- 
tion. 

Nick Faldo s Championship Golf 
was always going to have to do a hell 
of a lot to become the best in its 
genre. It nearly does enough. The 
graphics are amazing, and new fea- 
tures as mentioned Ipl'us the option lo 
choose your own caddy, and drop 
him/her at wifi} make for a very enjoy- 
able experience indeed. 

The realism is undisputed - as a 
realistic golfing experience it can t be 
bettered - but there are a couple of 
quirks. Although the accuracy point 
does grow with success, it actually 
diminishes with the reverse, resulting 
in early frustrations. 

When these are overcome, you'll be 
delighted, but the fact that they are 
there at all means that in my opinion 
its a sudden death play-off for joint

board. The cursor keys |or certain letter 
keys) are used to move big W back ware 
and forwards, while the mouse come: 
into play to manipulate the weapons. 

The Walker itself is a pleasure to 
watch. A massive at frames of animo 
tion ensure that every move it makes is 
impressively smooth as it stomps Its way 
to destruction. Enemy characters are 
contrasting - most [with the notable 
exception of the level guardians| are 
quite small and plain in colour - but the 
animation, both of these and of the 
atmospheric backgrounds, are such that 
the two styles complement each other 
well. 

The backdrops also change in accor 
dance to the time frame, and the num- 
ber and speed of the enemies ensure 
that boredom will be a long time in set 
ting in. What helps Walker really stand 
out from the crowd though, is the 
sound. Seldom are you likely to hear 
more realistic or fearsome in game sam- 
ples as these, and tlte pumping intro 
tune [seven minutes longfj does an 
excellent job of creating an atmosphere 
conducive to killing. 

When we previewed Walker a eeupk 
of months ago, it was thought that 
there would be the option to actually 
control the machine from inside the 
cockpit There isn't, and having seen the 
game it becomes obvious that an 
attempt at implementing this would 
spoil the game. 

Developers DMA have managed to 
combine the best elements of several 
games in coming up with Walker - a 
tough, fun, addictive and original 
shoot-em-up that oozes quality ane 
spews out action like there's no tomor- 
row. Power-ups would have been nice 
and a pause option wouldn't have gone 
amiss, but this is a great release from 
Psy gnosis - a real tension reliever. 


C omputer games are loved for 
many reasons, hot the over- 
riding attraction is that while 
engaged, the player is transported to a 
place In his or her mind where just 
about anything is possible, 

Wartime Germany or modern day 
middle east can be bombard utifiiing 
period technology to the full, new 
worlds can be explored in the Space 
Shuttle, mythical lands exorcised of 
demons at the wave of a hand and the 
cast of a spell, and motor racing circuits 
can be created and raced around at 
break-neck speeds. 

Shuttle, Wing Commander, Legend 
of Kyrandia, Project X - the names are 
afi strongly suggestive of action, 
intrigue and adventure, which is pre- 
cisely what we gamers crave. Call a 
game Puddle or Cheese Plant and it 
just doesn't conjure up the same image. 
Similarly, if its a crazed and frantic con- 
test that you re after, then an affair 
called Walker isn't necessarily going ini- 
tiate an adrenalin flood, because lets 
face it - unless you own a pair of stout 
shoes and a durable nylon rucksack, 
walking simply isn't very interesting, 
Names can be deceptive though - I 
remember shortly after beginning high 
school, I picked a fight with a lad called 
Hillary; he gave me the drubbing of my 
life and taught me a valuable lesson in 
presumptuous ness. By the same token, 
far from being a dull and boring one 
leg^n-f ront-of ■the-othen em-up, Wa Tker 
is in fact a shoot- em-up, and a bit of a 
Honker at that, 

Sometime In the near future. Jaw 
and order throughout the world have 
broken down. Due to rapid technologi- 
cal advances, enemies are able not only 
to destroy each other with what have 
become coventional weaponry, but cant

Jove! 

The flagship or this curious clock- 
defying army Is the AG-9 Walker, a ten 
metre-tall heavy duty tank on legs that 

- if tanks broke sweat which they obvi- 
ously don t but if they did - could ani 
ahilate a city without spilling a single 
salty bead. 

You take charge of the Walker at it

One stage; space-age vehicles take over 
the mantle on the Future level, and a 
whole array of semi^odern pieces of 
kit comprise the middle two levels - the 
Urban and Industrial time points. 

Having mentioned it earlier on, you 
may now be wondering quite how a 
shoot-em-up featuring a tank on legs" 
could work. Very simply, is the answer. 
Unusually, the screen scroiis from right 
to left, and the Walker is controlled by 
a combination of the mouse and key-

carmons bofted on the front We are talking 
total destruction here, kids, 

J 1 1 let you in on a little secret, but onty if 
you don t tell anyone Most flight sims claim 
that they are accurate down to the tiniest 
detarl, but they are not that accurate m the 
control department. 

Planes as a general rule are a right pain 
in the botty to fly - ask anyone who's been 
on the Krypton Factor, To combat this fact 
most programmers make flight that bit eas« 
ret, Out this is not the case with Harrier 
Assault The flight model is very realistic 
indeed so if you want a challenge, youve 
gat one. 

Hamer is very good fun ante you get

The story behind a game has

The players must battle through

there Is a shop. This is where you 
choose your focal friendly p sy- 
chopafh. When you select one of the 
volunteers, measurement bars show 
health, intelligence skill am i speed. 

On these measurement bars Is 
shown the potential maximum of 
that particular aspect and the actual 
level. The potential level of the 
navvy's intelligence, for instance, 
will be ref alive low but this can be 
increased by "buying" him some 
intelligence when you have the 
option to go shopping. 

Also on this shopping screen are 
facilities to buy extra fives, increase 
any of you attributes and buy other 
special shills like monster repellent 
and the like. 

After you have chosen the charac- 
ter you want you have to choose one 
for the computer, assuming that you 
aren t playing with a friend. The 
amount of intelligence the character 
you choose has dictates how much 


ver sets of keys which will open 
doors and passageways. 

Just because there if a natural pro- 
gression through the game with the 
existence of the silver keys, thfi 
doesn't mean it becomes uninterest* 
ing, Gold keys open up different sec- 
tions on the games revealing money 
and special powers. 

At the end of the level you are 
shown an appraisal screen which 
tells you how much of the level you 
discovered, what percentage of the 
gold you picked up and who did the 
most work, How much you do on 
your particular level decides how 
much of the treasure you get, 

There are all manner of beanies 
from trolls to gigantic hands which 
follow you around but on the whole 
they are pretty easy to dispatch. 
Remember to hang around after you 
have bumped them off, though, 
because they always leave a bit of 
money lying around. 


off-screen* 

If you leave your partner well 
behind he will materialise next to 
you after a couple of seconds, This 
doesn't apply if he is a human char- 
acter - if he wanders offscreen, you 
have to wait for him to catch up. 

To get through the levels, not only 
do you have to find all the stiver 
keys but you have to activate the 
nodes. These are large monolith-like 
things which seem rather uninterest- 
ing until you shoot them a bait Then 
they turn into massive pulsating mar- 
ital aids. 

You have to activate all of these to 
get the exit open to the next level. 
On later levels there is more than 
one exit so it can get a little 
confusing, but this doesn’t detract 
from the fun.

The xiar vi Ifie show, Jfs Krusty 

I 've g ot two words to iay to you and 
[hey are.,. San Simpson That yellow 
haired tok has got a tot lo answer for. 
OK. so Lhe Simpsons is still the funniest car- 
toon I've eve* seen in my Jife. That's fine, but 
we the general public were constantly bom- 
barded with hype and merchandise, 

Merchandise Irke Bart alarm clocks. Bart 
bubbie bath, Homer hair spray, strekers, 
badges. T-shirts, etc etc. I couid go on for 
about sbe pages. The mischievous one even 
brought out a single and an album, both of 
whfch wete absofuteiy abysmal, The tom 
puter industry fatthed on to the fact that 
anything to do with the Simpsons was sell- 
ing like hot cakes, thus ensuring plenty of 
software for your home computers and 
consoles, 

The first effort to mw it's ugly head was 
Bart vs the Space Mutants and apart from 
the amazing cartoon introduction there 
wasn't a tor to be said about it apart from 
that it was a fairly standard platform romp 
and quite a sony affair. 

Then with a crack of thunder, the Simp- 
son phenomena died down. No publicity, 
no news, no nothing, The kiefs had turned 
their beady Irate eyes to something else as 
they so often do. 

The gaming news had also gone to an 
early grave, but slowly and surely there was 
a revival starting to happen, Bart's Night- 
mare had made a few waves and caused a 
big splash with its outstanding graphics and 
sound on the Super Nintendo Meanwhile 
on the Sega Megadrrve, a cartridge had 
started to sell very weU It's name? Krusty’s 
Super Fun House, 

The game wasn't as much to do with 
Bart Simpson as (he others Krusty's is more 
a spin-off, rather like A Drfferent World 
when compared to the Cosby Show As die- 
hard Simpson fam will know, Krusty is a 
clown who looks similar rind is just as psy 
chotic as the clown out of Stephen King's k 
He’s also Bart's hero. Krusty has his own TV 
show and appears alongside Itchy, Scratchy 
and Sideshow Bob. The plot behind the

April 1993 


Welcome to the house of fun,.. 


ACCLAIM ■ £29.99 ■ 1/2 meg ■ Joystick * Out now 


card pies. Very lethal 

Will Krusty s Super Fun House fail down 
or has it got good foundations? Overall, ft's 
an excellent puttfe/platform game. The 
graphics are great and to tdf the truth I 
can t tell any difference between [he Amiga 
and me Megadnve version, The same goes 
for the sound Those with a musical ear 
should, err write [0 Esther at That * life. 

Krusty's is very simple, but some of the 
levels are downright fiendish. Control 
method is no problem - even my dog could 
play it ft's quite addictive for the first few 
days, but a month after purchase if you hacf 
a choice between Kju sty's and something 
else you might just pick something else 
instead The price is a bit steep at just under 
£30 - perhaps Acclaim still minks it's the 
Sega version. 

If you re looking for something to m 
your brain a bit and you re feeling pretty 
flush then look no further than Krusty's, well 
at least until Lemmings 2 comes out. Aye 
Carymba dudes,

game is simple, Krusty is in trouble because 
rats have invaded his fun house and are 
begmnmg to run riot. He has to guide the 
rats to the deadly traps controlled by Bare, 
Homer and other such Springfield

back iss ues of youf Amiga maga- 
zines. Not just this one - check 
them air. Scan throughout the games sec 
lions, payrng particular attention to the pur- 
ity efforts of the last coupJe of months. Just 
for a giggle, count up how many times, a 
reviewer has said something along these 
tines.,. 

'All in afl it's a good game, and should 
keep you satisfied, at least until Lemmings 2 
arrives/ 

Have you done that? What? Twenty-six. 
No - just a minute - what about that one 
there, and the one just past the - oh, and 
don't forget that one, and.. 

Everyone, ii seems r has been waiting 
■with bated breach for the second coming fif 
you don't count Oh Mof\ of the green-haired 
stage d/vers since about welt since before 
J arrived, anyway Tne dozy little beasts 
delighted the entire gaming nation first time 
around, setting a new standard in the 
puzzle genre that has never quite been 
matched 

Such was the impact; the payability 
and the plain, simple bare-assed fun of 
it aJI, that the question havering on the bps 
of, J guess, almost everyone, is how could 
DMA possibly come up with something 
better? 

Rumour have circulated of course. First 
there was speculation mac the sequel would 
contain a massive 8,000 levels. Then it was 
said that Lemmings 2 would never come 
about and that Psygnosis, m keeping with 
the theme, had plans ta release a game 
about Oxford University students. 

There were even those who ventured 
that L2 would be the first virtual reality 
game for the home computer whereby play- 
ers wandered around spooky rendered land 
scapes, sufferrng actual death by electrocu- 
tion should they fair to complete a level. 

These proved unfounded - Lemmings Z 
has indeed arrived In ail its glory, sporting 
new Lems, new skrlfs, new revels. But lei's 
start atthebeginnrng... 

When we reff them, the Lems - having 
clambered, clomped, jumped and fallen 
iherr way through level after frustrating level 
- were comfortably and deservedly settled 
on their new island home. 

Of course, like any civilisation, they had 
varying ideas as to the way they wanted to

PSYGNOSIS ■ £29.99 ■ 1/2 meg ■ Mouse ■ Out now 


Ee, you remind me of meirH when I wai yo ur 
Age - ug ly lirtJc bugger I was 

lead tfw lives, and being a friendly - if not 
particularly intelligent - bunch, decided to 
split into tnbes and inhabit separate parts of 
the island. 

The cute animated intro features a grand- 
pappy Lem faking up the story, relating it to 
a young pup Lem. He explains how a magi* 
cal talisman - their protector - was split into 


ll might not bt San Trap*!, but in heme for our green-haired chums 


Hey - that «r David Vine- with a wig on, that is! 

1 1 parts when the lobes went stw sepa- 
rate ways, so that each group could rest 
easy to the assurance that they would come 
to no harm (they come to plenty of harm 
when ! play - believe me!|. 

Now for some reason - Judith Chalmers 
Is on hei way with a film crew probably - 
the Lems must move again; they can't go 
anywhere without their talisman though, 
and not surprisingly perhaps, the pieces 
have become lost throughout the fair lem 
ming Isle. 

That's the story, and its up to you as 
usual to guide the creatures through the 
levels to safety, it s a bigger game this time, 
and more thought has gone into the way 
in which it's structured 

There are 1 2 tribes of Lemmings, each 
inhabiting their own little piece of the 
island. Every tribe needs to complete ten 
levels, upon which they are rewarded with 
a vital bit of the talisman to fit onto the 
others, 

If you were delighted by the animation 
of the original Lemmings, then wear an old 


pair of trousers or shabby skirt because s r> 
chances are you'll make a mess when y:-_ 
feast your eyes on tne new extravaganza. 

Animators Gary Timmons and Dav : 
Osborne have really gone to town on the 
loves of their Jives, creating dozens of ne« 
comical situations. As we hinted in our 
view in February, the sprites are the m 
srze as ever, but the whole shebang is r jusr 
full to busting with brand new abili ties. 

Whereas previously there were a total 
eight attributes to aid the cause, the Le - 
now come complete with a stonking gre.^

any one time, for practical reasons as well 
programming ones, - instead it depends or

hen I firtt started writ- 
ing an computer maga- 
zines i worked for a PC 
magazine whtch has long since disap- 
peared* At that time games for the 
PC were more or less unheard of. 

There were the usual frogger and 
space invaders and there was plenty 
of shareware around hut it was all 
pretty dodgy. The only game worth 
playing then was Wing Commander, 

It came on about ten disks and 
tooh about an hour to install - and if 
you didrt t have a hard drive you 
could forget It, because playing from 
disks was nigh impossible. 

And it wasn't a bad game. If you 
had a fast enough PC and a sound 
card you could really get into it- Now

The packaging, manual* and so on 
are identical to the original, only 
instead of ten di*hs there are two. 
Even io I still installed it onto the 
hard dish juft so I could get the most 
out of the game. 

It begins with a conductor and his 
orchestra doing their stuff, hut it 
doesn't quite pull it off. What stood 
wing Commander apart from the rest 
of the ihoot- em-ups on the PC were 
its interactive characters. 

You could saunter up to people in 
the crew bar and get useful informa- 


tion about the missions you were 
about to fly. Not only were the peo- 
ple In the bar friendly but you flew 
with an intelligent wing-men (or 
womanf who would attach the 
enemy ships with as much vigour as 
yourself. 

They might not always have been 
as effective as you, but they did usu- 
ally get to fhoot down at least one 
baddie per mission.

make WC as film-like as possible, so

full burial - in a space suit with a 
later salute. 

You begin your career as a very 
lowly officer flying pretty crappy 
ships. But as you amass more and 
more successful missions you are pro 
moted and you get to fly better and 
bigger ships on missions even more 
suicidal than the last. 

Graphically WC fails miserably. For 
some reason the converters have tried 
to Keep enaetly the tame style of 
graphics as the PC. This doesn't work, 
mainly because of the different nature 
of the machines. Amigas simply can- 
not handle the amount of information 
needed to zoom in on and show 
details of the ships you are flying 
against- 

The result is painfully slow, itadly 
drawn graphics which resemble larger 
brown smudges on the screen when 
you get top close in. 

Controlling your pilot around the 
barracks is simple - everything is joy- 
stick driven - Out my main moan is the 
control of the craft itself. 

Maybe lm being a little snotty but 1 
have played Elite and all Ihe millions 
of clones that it has and never come 
across a flight model as unreal as 
this, 

When you are flying you have the 
normal joystick movement down for 
up and vice versa - no problem there. 
Now moving the joystick left or right 


you would think would give you so- 
sort of pitch in your chosen directs 
or even a circular spin as with Elrt 
but no. You move steady as a rack t 
the left or right which complete 
destroys the whole effect. 

Vtft does actually play, quite wt 
apart from the discrepancies in the 
control. The battle sequences are we 
set up and don't take too long. 

You are equipped with last* 
which you use most of the time. The 
are generally pretty effective so y». 
don't need to waste you missile 
unless you are getting a really go* 
stuffing. 

For the section when you are no 
actually doing anything of any us 
you can just puts on the autopilo 
which takes you forward to the ne> 
battle or meteor storm. 

At the end of the day though, Win: 
Commander is nothing more than n 
quick diversion and definitely ne 
worth the asking price.

Why bother with ecological disasters, 
space aliens who have travelled for millions 
of light years looking for a home, and the 
like? 

Instead, why not have three intelligent 
rats mutated by an explosion on board a 
supply ship, n?ime them after famous scien- 
tists and let them go round wreaking havoc 
tn outrageously heaviry armed vehicles? Why 
not indeed? 

As you have already guessed, the three 
psychotic, not to mention badly named, 
rodents are there to do your bidding. They 
have to hack, grind and splatter th&ir way to 
the sixth level to shut down the self-destruct 
sequence which rs to blow up the planet. 

The six fevers are maze-type affairs 
crammed full of baddies. Your ship is a sort 
of circular looking thing which skims around 
Not very fast, I might add., 

GWfl presents nothing hew to the sea- 
soned gamer, it's just another angle Oh the 
genre of plan-view shoot^m-ups. You con- 
trol all three although not all at once - and 
rt is you job to go around the maze shooting 
anything and everything which should come 
your way. 

The only new additions which set GWf? 
apart from the run-of-tho-mdl budget mate- 
rial are the m-game computer jnow a 
compulsory addition for these 
type of games] amd the wide 
range of power ups. 

With the destxucbon of 
the suspiciously stupid 
minions comes money 
for you to spend on 
more boti^on goodies. Ar 
the beginning and end of a 
level you have the c 
to buy things for your ship. 

This section is mainly used 
fw buying bigger and better 
guns for yourself but there 
are also energy pods and 
‘orbits' to be had.

there’s no sub game - always 
a nice littfe touch. 

One of the best thing 
about the power-ups is that 
you can have a different com 
figuration of weapons on all three of your 
ships. Of course you can only buy what you 
can afford. The bigger the price the bigger 
the weapon. 

There are six levels to the game, each oi 
which is pretty hard to say the least. The vast 
majority of the al*en force are a- pushover but 
as the levels progress they become a fol 
tougher, shooting more homing missies. 

That's one aspect i really drd find 
attractive - die aliens aren r as badly 
equipped as they usually arc Most 
of the time they have what might 
as well be a pop gun compared to 
your whacking great cannons and 
homing missiles. 

Some of the tugger roving alien 
ships possess homing missiles 'which 
can be a rear paun in the backside 
but your main worry are the gun 
turrets in the floor of [he maze 
These can throw all sorts of nasty 
things at you, 

GWR isn't what you'd call a com- 
plete stonker of a game, but, the excel- 
lent gameplay does tend to make up for the 
weak points in nther areas. If you like budget

it s about a wizard and his tat who by 
icme strange happening have found that

They both have to collect paint that is

The wizard transforms himself into a little

The W\ z has to then fend off lots of

Takmg into account how old the game 
actually is the graphics are astoundmg and 
would even put some of today's products

Vou can't fault Wizhali, simply because it 
is so orrginaF. The sound effects and music 
aren't that hot when compared to today's 
games, but way back then 
they sounded amazing. 

The control of WizbalF is very 
clever too, because when in

like a ball would. 

Wizbalf is more addictive

Is Jimmy Hills chin 
really that big? 
Jonathan Maddock 
provides the 
answer while he 
takes a sneaky 
peek at Soccer Kid 
by Krisali s 


I n my humble, but ac curate opinion 
there are now enough football genres 
Sensible Soccer and Kick Off 2 are more 
than adequate for my footballing needs. 
What footy fans really want is something 
different. 

t think Krisalns, the company behind such 
great football hits as Manchester United, 
Manchester United Europe and John Barnes 
European Football, have been thinking 
along the same lines 

Soccer Kid is something different, 
because for starters its a platform 
rgfliparama. I bet other software companies 
are kicking themselves. 

Soccer Kid was going to be entitled Foot- 
ball Kid, but was changed at the last minute 
because it was felt that the game would 
appeal more to overseas buyers when con- 
verted to the consoles with its new moniker 
Hmm, bloomm cheek if you ask me The 
great game was called Footbalf and that s 
the way it's going to stay 

The provisional story behind Soccer Kid U 
like this, The cup has been stolen by an 
extra-terrestrial 1 . This alien, though, doesn't 
want to phone home, much preferring to 
cause Chaos. The cup has also been broken 
into six pieces and dropped in different to 
tions around the world. 

Soccer Kid. being the conscientious chap 
that he is. has taken it upon himself (0 travel 
the globe to collect the pieces and deliver 
me reassembled cup to America in time for 
the 1 994 competition. 

If you are a bit of a cynic, you're probably 
already sneering in disgust and mink-rig that 
the game will be your bog standard plat- 
form romp. Well Mr/Mrs Cynical Reader, you 
couldn't be more wrong, and thinking like 
that will get you nowhere, ioccer Kid -s 
totally unique and very original indeed I

know this because I've already played a 
demo and it looks excellent. 

To start with, ne's got a football, and 
they haven't cut any corners either The 
actual ball is as realistic as possible and In 
many ways its movement is similar to the 
ball in Pinball Dreams. 

IT Krisalls 'were slackers than they'd just let 
Soccer Kid kick the ball along the levels, but 
they're not Mot only can he kick the ball, he 
can head it, play keepy uppy, trap it, 
balance on it and even overhead kick it. 

The ball is not put in there for sheer nov-

-e Oinl, Atour tft lakv fcoty 
v fit by storm yet again 


i:oEbaJl game of Its time - its successor 
v:0rte the drfficuJty in mastery expen- 
ded by many beginners, has now 
: dome damn nigh legendary for its 
^eef controllability. 

In fact these two games were to all 
rents and purposes the oniy real 
nffltes we had if we wanted a fast, corv 
*: liable, realistic footy game. 

Until about nine months ago that is,, 
i-nen Sensible Soccer arrived on the 
.:ene. Sporting new options, a different 
spective and a sense of fun, it won 
rdles of followers straight away and 
<rked off a Mario versus Sonic-kke war 
^mong the two sets of fans. 

Jt/ell Dino Oini has become used to 


being king of the castle over the last cou- 
ple of years, and he s not about to relin- 
quish that crown to a bunch of young 
upstarts from just up the road. 

He's been working flat out for about 
I a months, and in just a few weeks time 


his labour in the form of 90 Minutes. 

Don't be fooled by the name - 9Q Min- 
utes Js the third game in the Kick Off 
series, and no mistake. Dino has recentiy 
parted company with Anco though, who 


published the previous Kick Offs r id team 
up with big boys Virgin, and due to 
some internal wrangling that I was too 
polite to ask about, the Kick Off name 
stays with Amro. 

Dino has compietely re-written the 
game using more efficient techniques 
than previously, and although it was still 
incomplete when I saw it, several new 
elements are in evidence. 

Inertia, or acceleration, has been 
applied to the players, meaning that 
rather than beginning a run at full tilt, a 
player wiil now need about half a pitch's 
length before he reaches top speed, 

Perspective has changed also. There is 
still the option to play your game wrth a 
view of only a smalJ part of the pitch 
(now one sixth instead of one twelfth), 
but you can also vjew from a much 
higher angle which gives you an outlook 
on over half of the pitch. 

These views can be switched at will 
throughout the game at the tap of a key, 
which is a nice touch - handy for cor- 
ners, free kicks and the like, 

Speaking of these, Dino has eliminated 
the need for guesswork in such matters 
by including a, ertn... trajectory planner 
thingumajig which generously indicates 
the line your kick is going to take. 

A criticism JeveJIed at KOI was the 
sheer infallibility of the goalies - it was 
as if they'd never heard of the Dave 
Beasant syndrome [Dave who? - 
exactly!]. Not only has this been 
amended, but the whole game displays a 
greater intelligence. 

An example of this is in the referees, 
who discriminate between red and yel- 
low cards not only in severity of the foul, 
but also as to whereabouts on the pitch 
the incident took place, 

The crowd are far rowdier than ever 
before, and rightly so too as there are 
loads more variations of teams and kits 
to choose from - though Why On earth 
they'd want to cheer along with "Albion" 
Js way beyond me, 

Couple all of these elements with the 
existing playability of Kick Off 2, add a 
couple of new pitch options and a few 
more skill settings,, and what you get is a 
potentially stonking game that seems set 
to take footy fans everywhere by storm. 


With the war for top footy game as hot as ever, Dino 
Dint - not one to rest on his laurels - is determined 
to knock the sense out of Sensible Soccer once and 
for a/f, Paul Roundell kicks off to Cambridgeshire 
to try and make sense of it all

iash TV 

Hit Sqi 

uad ■ £7.99 


Kill.ng people - that's a very interesting concept for a 
game- shew; I II bet Noel Esmonds and Les Dennis both 
tvive stiff necks from constantly looking over their should 
ders at the mere prospect of it. 

Well that's what Smash TV is all about, and although it 
does carry limited appeal, i'd much rather take up the Noel and Les option, 

On entering a TV studro in front of whirring cameras and an ecstatic audience pumped with the 
promise of ‘total carnage', your job for the night is simpfe - stay alive 1 

You are provided with a gun to make the job that much easier, but the mam problem are the dozens 
of crazed loons who chase you with case bail bats, intent on cavirty in your skull and upping off your 
limbs. To make matters worse the perimeters of the studio are patrolled by gun-toting self destructive 
guards, and there are more than enough trip mines dotted around to 
ensure mat you il be scraping your brains from (he roof should you Step 
on one, 

Loads of power-ups are available to make matters more interesting, 
but really there just isn t enough to do in the game at all - even the 
shooting bits are very... weft . dean fooking. its a laugh for a while, but 
cill the screens are alike, and the gameplay becomes monotonous quite 
soon Any mare than a tenner would be an insulting price to ask, but as 
it is Smash TV is reasonably good value for money. 


Bignose the Caveman 

Codemasfers ■ £7.99 


Not every game that comes from the 
Code masters stables is a classic, and 
some rire even quite poor, but one thing 
l like about the Codies rs che fact that 
[fray toe their feet on Erte ground. 

They know their market the games they like to pfcy, and the price thtey ran afford to pay. and i hey 
cater to this. Bignose the Caveman es familiar territory for platform fans. 

The large conked one and his mates are rooking fcuvvard to a slap up Thanksgiving feast, but unfor- 
tunately they seem to be experiencing a few problems in the culinary quantity department; in that they 
have bugger fill to eat. 

Undeterred, Bignose picks up his trusty club anO sets off in search of some g^ub in the torn- or a 
large and tasty looking pterodactyl which inhabits the other side of the island 

Needless to say it won't be a cakewalk - there are toads of creatures on several levels tn bludgeon 
before you reach the goal. Banes and rocks can be collected as 
power ups, and there are one or two secret zones to discover as 
well. 

Graphics are colourful and dear, sound Isn't too bad, and 
although Bignose The Caveman is far from a gaming breakthrough, 
pe‘s got enough to keep the younger prayers happy for a good while. 






Pit Fighter 

Hit Squad ■ £7.99 


1 was arways under the impression that 
pit figh&ng was something to do with 
big mean dogs - the krnd that eat kids 
- ripping each others faces off after 
being fed on a diet of raw steak, 

Appdt entry nut though You have [he choice of three different fighters, you lucky 
blighters, whom you pit against all manner of mean opponents in on attempt to 
become the world champion, or something. 

Ty. Kato and Buzz are the Chippendale rejects turned fighters, who like nothing 
better than to orl [heir chests before implementing their allegedly extensive repertoire 
of moves on unsuspecting adversanei everywhere, As you fight through the rounds 
you will find a few items scattered around that might 
save your fists - far example, far some bizarre reason 
you can throw motorbikesf 

Graphically the game is far from impressive - dodgy 
looking sprites flickering around on even dodgier back- 
grounds. There area good number of moves to make, 
it's true, but when success or failure hinges on what 
amounts to guesswork, this in my book makes the 
whole affair a bit of a turkey.

Terminator 2 

Hit Squad • £7.99 


The big man said TB be backl" and by golly Miss Molly he 
was right Terminator 2 did not farewell with the review- 
ers when l was released way in the dark ages of Decem- 
ber 

Gamer gave it a very respectable 40 per cent because 
chats all ie deserved. Despite this it still flew up the charts thanks to a big advertising campaign backed 
up by lots of hype. 

The game irseff is a mixture of three element. It's ,1 beat-'em-up, a puzzie-'cm-up, a shoot-'em-UD 
and, m a chase* erbup. if there is such a thing. 

The plot of she game is loosely based on the plot g# the film, J have to admit that when it first arrived I 
was quite impressed by the presentation of, hut that all stopped though when I started to play it. 

The first level is a straight fight between Arnold khwanenegger 
fT-FDI | and the TF IKK) and It's no< exactly stirring Stuff. 

Second level and it's the chase- ! em-up between the TP DOO and 
John Connor on his motorbike. There are various obstacles in your 
way such as burnt out cars and, err water puddFes The difficulty level 
of i tie chas^'em-up does vary a lot On one go you might last a fuFl 
minute, others you might onry live fa* five seconds. 



Robocop 2 

Hit Squad • £7.99 


Cor iumme r it's anathei film tie-in. This time dd 
metal bonce is back. The first fiobocop was 
excellent at the time and sold loads due to the 
fact that the arcade version and of course, the 
firm was extremely popular. 

Robocop 2 the film was a brt ot a disappointment to say the least and the same 
goes tor the computer version The first game was new and interesting, whereas the second was 
lust seen as a standard platform game arvd a desperate cash-in before Robocop lost alJ of its 
popularity. 

The idea behind The game is that Robocop has to save the City of Detroit from crumbling into 
rum Trie reason for this disaster is a te&h.Hi drug called Nuke. 

Ihe police are on strike and the citizens are easy targets For gangs jf armed hoodlums and their 
reader Cain. The washing machine with legs has to destroy Cain 
and his lethal supply of Nuke, 

Like Terminator 2 it's goc good graphics, but rs Jet down by 
poor playability. Robot op 2 is a very hard platformer and even the 
most experienced games player might have trouble rn completing 
the rarer levels. 

It wifi keep you entertained tor a lot longer than Terminator 7, 
but doesn't quite make the grade

What's going on? is it that sequel

that you can buy for your computer. 

Forget the opposition because there isn't any. 

Why is it so good. I hear you ask? Fey starters it's actually quite easy to hit the 
ball This always seems to be a major problem with basebalF srms. They look nice 
and are well presented, but when it comes to the realism, there isn't an y

sheer playabifity and addiction 

Every aspect is easy to understand and easy to 
play It doesn't matter whether it's batting, pitching 
or fielding One of the best touches is the electronic 
scoreboard which comes up with amusing htde ani-

He discovered Bob in the home of Fred

boot sale in Wigan The couple were saved 
just before they met an untimely demise. 

’When we First bought Bob. we had no

play on him well into the night. 

Then about two months ago we invited 
some Frrends around for a game. 

■We reft them to it for a few minutes and 
when we came back they were dead as

It took us a while to convince the

upposc a long und involved luncdon has to be 
ft called several times by a program. It would make 

more sense if its result was stored in memory, and 
recalled every time it was needed, rather than having to ho 
recomputed each time. If you have evef as nuicii as uwxl a 
pocket calculator with a memory, you know tlut tliis makes 
sense. 

In iTieiiMHSiltiO'ii we create a table, and each time a func- 
tion is called with specific arguments, the result is stored at a 
crmespofuling position in the taitle (a memo). 

Every time a value is needed for the function, we first 
check tire table, and only proceed 10 calculate it if (Jtere is no 
memo for it, In certain cases this can result in wwimous time 
savings! 

Meitioisaiion is used a Jot in mattien Lit real and algebraic 
software. However, this is not the place to explore arcane 
computing °r scientific issues. We merely use simplified 
fumes of these sulujects as an interesting context or Iwkdrop 
to show off what AKexx can do practically 

So if you are a iieginner. there Ls no need to lie confused. 

A Hew Is there to simplify your computing chores, as 1 hope 
that this month's subject will amply dumunstTfle! It is certain- 
ly an appiicaiiod area tailor-nude tor ARexx, and It sliuuld 
give you ideas for many other uses. 

Most itf you already know that AKexx is a recursive lan- 
guage, ie its functkms can cull themselves. Recursion is a nai- 
unilly elegant way n> deal with rrtiny computing problems, 
and if you do Liny pmgrainmmg at ail you will come across 
ft, sooner or later. 

Vi e w-ill illustrate tire recursive programming style hy using 
the Fibonacci series. This Is a very well known scries, snot? it 
appears in many natural forms, including the spirals uj shells 
and the arrangement of sunflowers and daisies. Here are the 
first Few numlrers in the series: 

1 , 1 ,2.3 ,W, I3iU-i ,55,89. 144,233-. etc. 

It is obvious that every dement in this series is simply the 
sum ol the previous two elements, and its definition Ls pre- 
cisely that 

HboNumfn) = F£boNuiri( n-1 ) + KiboNumtn-2 1 

iTuH is, the nth number is tire sum of die (n-l )th and (n-2Hh 
numbers This is exactly how we think of it, so it is reason- 
able to want to write a program for it in the same way 
(notice rhai the first and second Fibonacci numbers are 
defined to lie 1 ). 

Here Ls a very simplistic recursive ARexx pn>gr.im to find a 
Fibonacci numlier:

However, the above is an awful way to compute hihumcci 
numbers. Even the relatively low numbers will speedily 
exhaust both your patience and your machine's memory, 
look at die following figures, obtained from a standard A 500:

AEexx offers an extremdy efficient and simple media

There Lire a few points 10 dole. Firstly, setting the fust pan iU 
die compound symbol ^FibTable " (known as the siein) to 
\ n known \ sets ALL the uninitialised values of Fiblahkvxxxx 
until they are specifically changed 
When this value Ls tested in tlx table, we can imnkdiately see 
whether it Is already known or not, If il is not kin ywn, we calcu- 
late it and place il in the table before we Return. Tlx next time it 
1*1 called (tested) it w ill Ik* known! 

It k not even really necessary 8 to assign "Unknown” to the 


horn this program are much more acceptable, '[be l^th number is 
found in 0.6 seconds, [lie l6tli in 0.64 The lOflih number is found 
in 4.3 seconds and even die 500th (> |.;WHlC>ij is found in 26 
seconds 

Tills Ls soil about a third ul die speed of the iterative meiliod. 
hut there me many i';iM r s. where ease is mure imporiani dun 
speed. Tile reriinkjiie is also quite demanding in terms ui space, 
since all ihe values Lire kept in jnentury during computation. 
Nupc. Its not ebdp hui it's worth il 

11 ic usefulness of ill is method will not take long 
to sink in. For instance, we can easily metiiuise 
functions with more that one parameter, using a 
compound symbol ol the form Table, a-b.e.d.,. etc. 
We could even maintain s|xxial informLitkiU alxiui 
[Rir memo table such as the nunilier of entries, or 
other special properties in variables like

old variable. 

Naturally, memo tables are not resirieied to 
numeric information; funcikims that generate sym- 
IxjUl data can use them just as effectively. Finally, il 
you want your stored duLa to per si si beyond the 
lifetime of your program you can store it in the 
ARexx H djp H system, But we will have to look al

* icsn't sound very 1 promising, due* it? However, a direct cmv 
smMtfi Ijctween Adorage and existing animation .software is in

A more accurate appraisal would he to blxH the package as

One of the best Adorage effects in action as the 
Enterprise waves its way on screen 


le shortcomings 


OK. you've had the good news, now it s time tor a tittle bad. 
Firstly like almost ervery package aimed towards animation 
Adorage has a veracious appetite for RAM and In turn stor- 
age space. 

Although neither excessive RAM or a hard disk is strictly 
essential, practical application really demands both of the 
above to produce a usable end product. 

Secondly, as mentioned earlier, the package is (airly lim- 
ited as far as available resolutions and screen colours are 
concerned, with only hikes 16 colour or low-res 32 colours 
available - both of which require interlace as a prerequisite, 
Alas, none of the new AGA modes are supported 
although a new version has been promised! for the hugely 
expanded palette of the A1 200 and 40001 
Another curiosity of Adorage is its fondness of the 1200 
and its total hatred of the 4ttQ0 - a machine on which the 
package won't even load, never mind animate 


Lum itself with [ 111 : generatat of original 
images, but rather their tmrdpuMofi Lind 
asmblruljon wilhin llti Lmim. 

For example, if you have a number ui 
static images all sharing a common resolu- 
tion they on lie combined sequentially and 
transformed within Adorage from a less 
than inspired collection of siatics into a 
swirling. ever-Llianging presentitai which 
pauses momentarily on the original image 
prior to kEroducsng die next. 

In wime ways (lie animations generated 
by the software ;ixtf very reminiscent of die 
wipes and Fades offered by packages such 
as Saiia r Media link, ShowMaker and she 
numerous presentation programs that gome 
as pad of the more multimedia oriented 
24-bit systems. 

The big difference offered by Adorage is 
tit ii i List over " hj possible effect cnmbina- 
lions frani an initial selection which Include 
k)go diamonds. blinds, splinters, fire, wild 

I wanna 
be adored 



diamonds., spins, pixelise. peels, lines, pieces, scrolls, windows, 
waves and wind. 

Each effect in lum then offers a variety of effect styles which 
allow the user to specify die size/ complexity and style images to 
Ix 1 generated. Although several of the listed effects may sound 
familiar such as Winds, scroll and span, it's worth bearing in mind 
tint although not unusual as special dfetia, Adorage is unique in 
Am li allows you to define exactly how you warn the died lu 
progress, 

Whetlier it is to be arampanied by a background image and 
perhaps mure importantly how the Finished results are to he 
saved - either an SSA or Anitin k>niLiL 


Paul Austin puts the 
latest in animation 
to the test as 
Adorage struts its 
artistic stuff 


Although familiar even tliese simple effects ure armzlllgly pow- 
erful. Hot example, imagine hying to build a simple fotir-colunin 
blind effect animation form an existing stalk via DPaiiu. Altiutigh 
achievable, the time and planning needed 
io match the quality of an Identical 
Adorage effect would takes itours if nut 
days to produce. 

As for the metre complex Adorage 
effects, it's safe to say they're well beyond 
esen the most experienced DPaim onima- 
lor, a fine example Ix-ing tine helix effect. 

In this particular example, the image is 
either broken or recombined from a 
definable number ol facets which swirl 
(be entire image or brush Into die hi miliar 
spiral of a helix before reforming the 
original image- or dispersing it altogether 
- not only impressive hut impossible to 
duplicate w ith any other Amiga animation 
system. 


Controlling the action 

With a package aimed squarely at the busy semi-prtrfesskml, 
ease of use, compatibility and flexibility have- to be high priori* 
ties. To tills end, Adorage does well with options to save its eras 
: attonx both as JFFs and SSAs - alios SufXT-Smtxith-AiiLiiiatLofi - 
a format which animates much faster slam standard Anting but 
in turn sacrifices compatibility in tite process. 

User preferences can be defined and saved plus anim 
sequences ean lx- saved in a script form as a start and end effect 
which can then 1 x l saved into a lihniA of favourite effedb and 
applied Tu new images as required.

[i Incursion window is like ;i program wafting for an 
event to happen, si ^ that IT car lake die necessary 
action. Two of the* programs on the CoverDlsk 
hrmonstrate features of Intuition windows to new assembler 


j C programmers. The third program is a public domain ulil- 
n a *r docunterifing source code. 

ft hen an event occurs In an active Intuition window, an 
-formation;! I message is generated. Blocks of data tor data 
^niLtunes) called message pc >rts can he used to communicate 


- ith these messages. 

Vn Intuition window has two separate message ports, for 
mdow events and for IPCMP events, Farh Window flag rep- 
re^ents an event that could send a message To the window's 
^TindowPorT. 

For example, if the window depth flag is set, the window is 
generated with the gadget in The upper right-hand corner 
SThen the mouse clicks on the gadget, tile window is 
l arranged relative to other on-screen windows, no inter. en- 
■ i: -n by the program is necessary. 

F,ich 1 1 Oil 1 Jla^ represents an event that a program could 
e informed about by a message in the window's tiserPcm. 
Hie main feature of in Intuition program is usually a polling 
.op which waits tor an event to occur and interprets the 
t’jcssage. 

Instead the demonstration program takes a short-cut, and

assembler, for a New Window structure 
with address in register AO, the address of 
tile screen pointer is nw_Screen(AO). 

The CnvtrDisk contains, the program 
source code listing in C Ewin.c) and die 
object code twin). The source code 
includes iniintion intuitional for the 
Intuition window md screen .stmeiures 
and definitions used in the program 
source, and exec/iypcs.h for datatypes 
used by the intuit ion.h header file. 

When tile object program (win) is run, 
the program opens the Intuition library, 
and opens a low resolution custom screen 
imaginatively titled custom screen, A win- 
dow called the small window will open - 
it can be moved using the drag bars at the 
trip, or be resized using din- gadget ill the 
lower right-hand corner. 

It could be rearranged relative to any 
Other of the screen s windows Ed there 
were any) with the depth gadget at the 



Intuitive 



The main compiler Eur assembler) header directory contains 
j subdirectory of header files for each library, containing useful 
macros and definitions lor some of the library functions. 
Relevant header files can be included in the source code. 

These header files also contain definitions of structures tor 
blocks of information) used by die system and by the library 
routines. 

Each structure has a unique name, Rich separate piece ol 
mfom atton, or structure member, also has a unique name Hie 
^ructure dfffLnitkm contains the names Lind datatypes oi all its 
memliem 

Header files excre, 1 types.! and exeo^types.h contain informa- 
tion on the si/e of each datatype. This enables the compiler to 
calculate die offset or each structure member from the ^Lurt of 
she block of information. 

For example, in € source code, the screen pointer structure 
member of a New Window structure called TheHewWincbw is

including all the long intuition/ intuition i header files, 3 have 
isolated the relevant structure definitions, and pur them at the 
end of the code section of the .source code. 

Header files tx-en included with datatypes and definitions 
used by these Intuition structures. When the object program 
Escreeusand windows is run, tile program opens the Intuition 
librae., opens a low resolution custom .screen, and a small 
window that can be resized, moved, depth arranged and final- 
ly dosed. The program doses the screen and exits 

When a program is being written, priority is given to pro- 
ducing i working version before the deadline. Ideally each 
function in the source code should have a meaningful name, 
and J description of the task it Is trying to accomplish. 

Each variable should l x accompanied by a helpful little 
comment, A few words al the start of the scarce ctxle can give 
a due to the purpose of the program. 

Comments explaining tlte “clever bits" ot the code are a 
nice touch. All this documentation can be a real godsend later 
on, when chunks ol she source code are to lie recycled in 
another program 

by the time the .author gets round u> it, too much time has 
elapsed, and some of the subtleties of the code have been 
forgotten. 

A newly discovered public domain utility, Docca 1 can reme- 
dy die situation, ll can tidy up source code loop indentation, 
and add comments to any standard data structures Global 
variables are given comments, and cross references to the 
functions that use them. 

A brief summary of each function is added, and a short 
description of the program's purpose. The utility wiU even 
attempt to document some of tile more obscure lines of code, 
but success cannot be guaranteed 

This utility has Iwen included on the Cover Disk - simply 
type in docca and the filename oi' the offending source code, 
and all your dotumraiution problems will lie solved.

A 


Ithough Last months Clarity feature did much to 
explain the bastes of the Amiga's latest adventure 
into Ifi-bit sampling, th is month's Almanac pits ns to 
ok j little deeper at the more subtle aspects of the system. 
Obviously a primary concern to the serious musician is 
Lniiy's compatibility with Midi hardware. As mentkmed in Iasi 
month's issue, Midi is surprising]} well catered ftn\ 

However the existing options do have their problems. As you 
may remember, when Clarity is combined with a Midi key- 
hoard, an entire sample map can be applied to the keyboard 
With up to four individual samples playing simultaneously, pro- 
viding the host machine can match the ptrft i nuance of a AIJ^) 
t ir above 


In practice this works perfectly when the connection 
between Clarity and the master keyboard is a direct one. 
However when the combination of Clarity and the keyboard is 
made via a sequencer problems can arise. 

As you may mall, Clarity's Midi vocabulary- is a very- simple 
me with just a simple Midi On Midi Oil [icing all that s required 
in trigger sample playback. 

As a result and in an ideal world, triggering rite sampler via a 
Nequencer should l«r a simple nutter of connecting up a Midi 
cable from tl w sequencer to the sampler 

Alas, in practice dungs are a little more complex as Clarity 
can, and often is, easily confused by a complex flow of Midi 
data. The end result can be thit suddenly you find youreelf with 


MUSIC 


to run the Clarity and sequencing software 
simultaneously on the same machine. If 
possible! employ ;t second Amiga or more 
Likely your keyboard's internal sequertcer 

Qn a final mote of gloom we come to 
Clarity's Midi dump function which allows 
samples created with Clarity to be 
i Ill]ii| hl'i.I to either a sampling keyboard or 
module In early versions the J foremen - 
honed dump function didn't work with 
certain setups-. 

Fortunately, thanks to the efforts of Dan 
Lennard the author of the Clarity, the 
Compatibility problem could be resolved 
as the finishing touches have just Ikren 
added to a new version which will hope 
fully cure the dumping problem twhai an 
unfortu nate expression’ ), 

If you've suffered such problems con- 
tact Microcfed - or a doctor - Jor further 
information on obtaining an upgrade. 



one sample during playback as opposed to the four you had 
planned tor. 

Fortunately there are a few methods of Commuting die prob- 
lem. First and foremost check your chosen protocol and bit 
transfer settings anti tn experimenting with a few vu rial ions - 
you can always reload you r defaults so any mistakes can be 
easily rectified. 

Secondly when connecting up uy to ensure that Clarity 
receives as clean a Midi signal as possible. There are two 
methods of achieving this. First make sure the connecting lead 
isn’i excessively lengthy, make sure it's well insulated, and 
secondly, try connecting a Midi Out direct so the sampler rather 
than daisy-chaining a signal through numerous Midi Thru ports. 
This is often the cause of degraded signals - and m dte case of 
Clarity they can lie fatal. 

If at all possible, use a direct line out from your interlace or 
junction box. thereby insuring a crystal clean signal for the sam- 
pler. in addition try making a lew subtle adjustments to the fast 
Amiga settings in the Options menu. 

Fortunately the authors of i he manual have been kind 

B 

enough to offer some presets for an A1200, l se these as a 
guide while adjusting to suit your system. 

Finally, no mailer how last your machine is, don't be tempted

■ elephonc lines were not originally designed to 
cany precise digital information, whore every bii 
and byte is essential. Crackh fines are [he bane of 
comms world, so reliable file transfer is as trick y as il is 
MCnthll. 

Nowadays modems exist which can correct errors by “talk- 
_ interactively with each other, but long before such teelmi- 
- wizardry had evolved, the now legendary Xmodem pmto- 
< system) managed to solved the problem - with 
or ^promises. 

The bask idea is very simple. Instead of sending a file as 
■ long, unchecked, string of data, Xmodem splits the data to 
- sent Into 3 28-byte chunks. At the end of each chunk the 
i mfiurer sends a “checksum" - a number based upon the val- 
-■- of the previous chunk of data, 

]\ the checksum is the same at Ixrth terminals, the data must 
— * l" been sent correctly, and the computer continues with the 
■r Hock. If there is a mistake, ir simply sends the offending 
* k again Obviously the worse die line, the longer such a 
-lem will take, 

Indeed, this is where the compromise lies with Xmodem* 
ind why - although most comma packages .still support el - it 
-o been superseded by more modem protocols. The problem 
s that, because it sends data in .such small blocks individually 
etify ing each one, even with a clear line it can take a while 
transfer a file of any length. 


CO 





square one - i f there’s no error correction 
facility and the modem as sending a file 
in one go, surely the system is chronical- 
ly prone to errors as soon as the line so 
much as crackles a little? 

Well, yes and no. Firstly, thanks to 
hardware advances allowing modems to 
utilise built-in MXE* or V42 error correc- 
tion , transfer errors can be avoided a lot 
more easily than a few years ago. 

Secondly, \ Modem-G utilises error 
detection rather than error correction. 
This is an all-or- noth ing safety net to 
catch a irrupt files if MNP or V4 2 have 
failed. 

Basically, it aborts a download if there 
has been any data corruption, rather than 
attempting to re-load an offending block. 
Obviously this is as real pain if you're 
hall way through downloading a huge 
graphics file, but in practice it happens 



This is compounded by the 
ici that, as baud rates have 
ncreased, the gap between 
Xmodem and other protocols 
us grown even wider - it 
jkes the same time to check 
whether the last 128 bytes 
intved correctly whatever baud 
'ite you're running at! 

Along with other disadvan- 
tages, such as problematic 
hecks urn technicalities and an 
fubtlity to append extra infor- 
mation such as the filename 
onto Xmodem files, Xmodem has become somewhat dated, 
md even with refinements, ir was dealt a deadt-blow by the 
nival of Ymodem. 

This protocol adds the ability to send data in 1,024 byte 
"lock as well as UK, avoids Lime-consuming extra data 
appended io the end of blocks, and provides the facility to tag 
i file with an individual date, time and filename. 

You can choose, too, whether the computer stilt acknowl- 
edges each individual block or - using a hybrid called 
nuKlem-Ci - speeds through the whole file at once. 

this would, at first glance, seem to l>e putting us tack to

very rarely Most recently, however* Xmodem has appeared 
on the scene. More evolution than revolution, Xmodem is 
currently the fasiest and most modern protocol available. 

As well as being fully backwardly compatible with the ear- 
lier systems, it uses a system called CMC ICytjk Redundancy 
Checker) to ensure that data is arriving successfully at the 
remote machine, and should some blocks be sent incorrectly, 
It ran go hack and send them again later. 

Thus it keeps the fine-toothed comb of Xmodem, but - 
nodding towards better hardware - utilises the "data stream’ 
characteristics of Ymodem. 

The lull utilisation of more powerful computers, better 
software* faster baud rates and the general rise of spohlslica- 
tion in tlie developing cumins world all mean that /.modern 
Ls highly user-friendly a.s well as reliable and fast. 

As well as being lully capable of adding filenames, time, 
date, file sizes and other important information to files, 
Z modem can transfer groups of files in one download and 
can react intelligently to w hat the other computer is doing, 
setting itself to receive or .send data accordingly, 

For argument's sake, should the line go completely dead in 
the middle of a particularly long-winded download, ii is pos- 
sible for you to phone back the other computer and start 
downloading again from where you left off. 

■fthh /modem, eomms protocols have reached the point 
where they are fast and reliable enough to deal with most 
line noise and other obstacles put m their way* while keep- 
ing the user fully informed about what's going on. 

It's a far cry from [he arduously tested 128-byte blocks of 
alt those years ago! 


Avoiding muddled 
files is a must in 
the comms world.

ampler than ordinary B asfcl. 

And finally you can limit the mouse 10 certain areas of die 
sri-m with tin 1 LIMIT MOUSE command Obviously once you 
■ j . e the mouse bdflg read fft im the Amos program, you can 
< js easily pass ibe info from the mouse to a sprite and relate

The mouse can’t move outside the coniines of an invisible 
- ■•x on the screen p which is good for the kind of game where 
,n attack wave is coming onto the screen from the right-hand 
'■■Je and you might smack into a few hobs as they appear 
If you can't reach that side of the screen your player will be 
safe, until they start shooting at least 
So the riling to bear In mind with object control is die differ- 
ence lietween hardware co-ordinates and screen ctt-ordiiutes. 
The X MOUSE and V MOI ISK comnttnds reium hardware CO- 
■rdinates sri yinr have to convert ihem to screen tXHirdinates 

■ irihe position to Ik; right - die same with LIMIT MOI : SE, 

In order for the oo-ords from X Lind V MOUSE to he correct 
• hi have to convert tliem using X and Y SCREEN respectively, 
Many games require more controls than the simple up, 
L >ivn, left, right and fire - flight simulators Lire a gcxkJ example 
4 this. 

Flight sims usually IlSVe u numhcT of controls. Obviously a 
‘V stick is a good start, btiL for things like setting your tl a ps , 
■nroldjng the engine, launching rockets and mi on _i lew more 
■nirol keys are required, I hts is where rfu/ keyboard comes in, 
The simplest method for controlling things using the key- 

■ .ml U i 1 1 ex.ii hi rie individual keys and check i! iliev re equh ■ 
i ent to certain Asdi characters. 

AscEf is a standard code for computer* where every key on 


AMOS 


the keyboard has a number, and although 
these numbers ate usually only used inter- 
nally for the computer to identify certain 
characters, die codes do have uses in 
computer programs. 

Commonly the computer language you 
use has a sort of translation of the codes 
buill in, so you can say: 

If fi-'-i 4 Then J0THE6U 

kind of thing. This means dial if a key you 
I lave pressed is in fact the capital “N" key, 
the Proc called JX5THERIZ is actioned. 
To grab ihe key in lhe first place you have 
a few options the simplest of which is the 
INKEYS statement: 

Id 

Zl-liikert : It l%<* aa Then Print It 
imp 

IN KEYS waits in the background until a 




key is pressed. and then when it is the value of that key is 
stored m the variable you assign It to. Testing lhai variable 
allows you to check which key it was that was pressed. 

To check the Ascii codes of keys you can test them with the 
ASC and CHRtO functions. A SC generates the Ascii code of a 
character and CHR$0 converts that code into a character on die 
screen, 

A more sophisticated fund ion is the SCANCODE keyword, 
which allows you to check for keys which don't actually print 
on the screen like Help, Del or the function, keys FI to F10, 
This means that all the keys cm she keyboard can he trapped 
and used as control keys for your program. This short program 
gives you the basic idea:

Please state Amiga or PC 







he argument about which is rhe cop Amiga DTP pro- 
grain is never ending, The only certainly is that die 
battle is between Soft-Logik's Pagc&team and Gold 
Dtaii % Professional Page. Probably. 

Both have strengths, both have wtakniMseSp but something 
Stream can do that Professional Page cannot is adjust the 

- reen frequency" of bis map graphics, and inttpuf (he m at this 
fcquency to dot matrix printers. 

Normally this screen frequency feature is restricted to 
r ^Script output, and even then a single frequency is specified 

- the whole document, 


PageStfeam lets you adjust the screen frequency of each 
5sLmiip graphic individually, enabling you to print each bitmap 
.• ks optimum Frequency. 

The lerm screen frequency is often misuncfeistood. It has 
2 'bang whatsoever to do with the screen you are looking at - 
: e display, I mean, the TV or monitor. 

It s got nothing to do with that. And while it affects the reso- 
kjuon of the printed output, sneer frequency is not the same 
-mg as output resolution. 

The term Ls a hangover from traditional publishing where 
Sophies are photographed through a fine mesh or screen in 
rder to turn the continuous umes of the graphic into patterns 
‘ black dots 



The frequency part of (he term describes how fine b> ihc mesh, 
»- willed as a lines per inch" value. Do not confuse "Ones 
;:er indT dpi) with "dais per indv (dpi)- they arc. 1 not the same 

thing. After the graphic has been 
screened (photographed through 
the screen), you ate left with some- 
thing calied a. halftone, and ii is this 
halftone that is published, not die 
annual graphic. 

Look closely at any black-and- 
white photo in any newspaper 
and you'll see an example of a 
halftone. 

Screen frequency in desktop 
publishing is roe quite the same 
tiling, but it has the same effect - 
it enables you to simulate continu- 
ous tones or shades (colours and 
solid greys') as patterns of different 
sized black dors with while gaps 
between* or white dots if you like, 
although black is the only colour 
that actually get printed, of course. 

The finer the screen, the higher 
the apparent output resolution, 
but the fewer shades can he simu- 
lated because the "dither matrix" 
- the number of pixels available 
in which die patterns -can be cre- 
ated - is reduced in si£e. It may 


The iawer the screen 
frequency, the more 
cotours esn be simulat- 
ed, but f#w* less 
information is printed, 
*o the tower the effec- 
tive output resolut ion 



The Screen Frequency gadget to fmmd in the Edit Co- 
oril/jiflfts ri quester, Bach bitmap graphic m ay have 

its own screen frequency 



sound quite technical but It’s really dead 
simple, and is probably best Illustrated 
wish an example 

Let's say we have 300 dpi pnnter and 
we am printing a graphic at a screen fre- 
quency of 100 I pi . The 10D Ipc means that 
in every inch across and down the printed 
graphic ihene will lie J00 opportunities to 
create 3 pattern of black and while dots 
that simulates one colour or shade of grey. 

Now, as our printer is a 300 dpi device, 
a[ this screen frequency each sliade can 
be simulated in a dither matrix that is 
three dots wide by three dots high - out- 
put resolution (dpi) divided by screen fre- 
quency dpi) equals the number of dots 
wide and high Ls the dither matrix, m this 
case 300/100=3, If the matrix ls three dots 
wide and three high, then there are 3x3=9 
dots in all in the matrix. If one of those 

Behind 

the lines 



nine docs is black and the rest are left white, we have simulated 
a light shack; if two ant : hlack and the rest white we have simu- 
lated a slightly darker shade; and so on up to ail the dots hring 
black, in which case we have simulated black or a very dark 
shade. Nine dots, so nine shades can he simulated. 

II we reduce the .screen frequency to 60 Ipi, each dither 
matrix can be 5x3 does (3QG/6CH5}, so 25 shades are possible. 
Get the idea? But this is only true if you are printing at 300 dpi 
(DeskJet* LaserJets). If you are printing ai 360 dpi (24-pin dm* 
(matrix, bubble jet), then each dither matrix at 60 Ipi is 6x6 dote 
(360/60-6), so 36 shade* ran be simulated 
if you are stilt confused or worried by the maths* go hack 
and read the explanation again* slowly this time - there's only 
H One division and one multiplication. 

But die price you pay for more simulated shades is less infor- 
mation [kt unit area of paper. Or in other words. Fewer dots per 
Inch. Or in yet other words, using a screen to print more sliades 
l ias the effect of reducing the apparent output resolution. 

A good compromise for 300/360 dpi printers is a 60 Ipi 
screen, which produces 25/36 shades. But if the graphic you 
are priming contains only 16 colours, 
l hen or 90 Ipi will simulate 16 shades 
[on 300 and 360 dpi printers respectively) 
and give you a higher output resolution. 

[f the graphic contains only 8 colours, 
then 100 nr 120 Ipi will simulate all of 
diem and give you a higher still output 
resolution 

If it is a 4-cdour graphic, then 150 or 
180 Ipi will handle that. But keep in mind 
(hat the higher the lines jjer inch figure, 
the smaller the dither maLrix, so the more 
difficult it will be to simulate any particu- 
lar shade. 


Understanding what 
goes on when you 
print a graphic can 
help you to choose 
the correct 
parameters for 
pristine printing. 

Ben Pointer grabs 
his magnifying 
glass... 


Perfect posters 

Panting a number of shades at the expense of some of your 
output resolution can work to your advantage when enlarge 
mg a picture. 

Enlarging means that there are more dots to work with, 
which offsets the loss in resol ulion caused by a larger dither 
matrix size. 

This, added to the benefits to be had by being able to 
reproduce more shades, means that enlarged graphics 
printed with 3fllpi (ish) screens will look quite good when 
viewed from a few lest. Perfect for posters, for example.

aM month we looked at .some oi l he looLs that can 
fx Lisi_xi to create multimedia and CD-ROM applica- 
dons, lilts month, I in continuing this with a more in 
, -ih look lie two of the easier to use development packages 
j[ jpc now available, Amig^\ ision and Scala 
^Sfien Commodore originally released the A3000 f their tJien 
up of the range Amiga, they gave away Amiga Vision as an 
zis\ to use multimedia authoring loot. 

It certainly is easy to use, working by placing icons on a grid 
r -ugh which the program flows. Each icon represent an inJi- 
. dual action such as playing sotmil and Speech, showing pic- 
jjies animal inns and cmtToiling external devices such as laser 
disks. 


There is iilso the facility to control the flow of the program 
rough the branches, ie rather than just following a series of 
-t-ps your program can have two different routes and being 
. ’ie to chose which one to take depending on die state of a 
enable. 


Given these i.i;Mhilities, Amiga Vision can be used to create 
some impressive multimedia applications with support for a 
aide range of hardware peripheral input and replay most types 
Amiga data. Unfortunately it has two serious drawbacks 
Firstly, there is no way in which you can create a program 
: at dotsn'l need Amiga\ is ion to tx; Used, Otherwise known as 
a run-time module. 

Secondly it swallows memory like Vampire brain surgeon. 
One megabyte is needed simply to load the program? Still if 
tou can live with these shortfalls, AimgaVision. is Tecommended 


MULTIMEDIA 


for its ease of use and peripheral control., 

A rival to Amiga Vision for ease of use 
and power Ls ScniLt. Originally available in 
one version, Scala is now in two forms - 
llie original Scala, called Scala 500, and its 
big brother, Sea la MM (for multimedia). 
Due to limJiatkwi.s of space, HI lie look- 
ing at Scala MM in a future issue and con- 
fine my soribbhngs just to Scala for this 
month., 

The program itself set the benchmarks 
for ease of use when it first appeared, 
allowing presentations to be created 
ridiculously easily, Originally developed 
for creating presentations. Scab can also 
Ix l used for simple appl ications. 

it works by creating scripts. Eads script 
v- a lisi oi pages and the associations 
between these pages Each page consists 
of an IFF backdrop onto which you place 
text,, and brushes 

['ext can be in any standard Amiga 
bitmap font each of which can have 
numerous different lext attributes applied 




Full- screen FMV for CDTV? 

As I finish this column word reaches me of some interesting 
developments on the FMV front Word is probably already 
creeping through concerning a new CDTV, 

What form this will lake is unknown, but associates tell 
me that it will include full screen FMV. How, you may ask 7 
The answer comes from a new compression format known 
as MPEG. 

This fermal reduces the space required to store moving 
pioiures, But why should a strangely named what-d'ya-cali-it 
affect CDTV and FMV? 

To explain, moving pictures are made up of a number of 
still frames displayed one after another, each changing 
slighlly. The result is a moving picture. 

Each CDTV full screen occupies a fixed amount of space. 
To display even a half decent moving picture the CDTV 
would need to display 1 6 of these a second (Ihe more the 
better) and thus need to transfer 16 times this amount of 
data every second from the CD disc - and we all know how 
slow CDs are at loading, 

Currently it simply doesn’t have the speed. However, 
reduce the amount of data to be transferred (ie compress 
the data while it loads and then uncompress il once it has 
loaded) and Ihe transfer speed suddenly becomes a smaller 
problem. 

Unfortunately the technology hasn't been available to 
uncompress these images quickly enough, Until now that is. 
Several American companies are now producing chips that 
do exactly this, and Commodore should be able to incorpo- 
rate this into the next CDTVs - and hopefully, produce an 
update card for existing unite! 

This isn't expected lo happen for a while, bul sources tell 
me we should expect to see something appearing mid-sum- 
mer 93! As they say, watch this space. 


rixild, drop shadow and so on\ and there arc a number of very 
high quality fonts supplied. 

Hdping to break ihe monotony of static text, there are 
roughly ^0 text effects that can be used to .scroll, faded j.nd 
dropped into place. 

Switching between different pLsgcs is fedlitated by buttons, 
clicking on which will take the user in a different page . Each 
page can he simply displayed on the screen or introduced 
through a transition. 

These consist of fades, scrolls and wipes and are fast, even 
on die lower end Amiga*. 

Its major failing is that it lacks proper CD-ROM support, with 
no CD audio or CBXL playing capabilities. If however, you r 
application consists of |ust screens, its worth a look. 

"Next month ['ll lx* looking at some ftjcenj developments in 
the field of Amiga multimedia and ask where is it all going? 


Two programs 
dominate the 
multimedia 
creation scene. 
Which will be the 
best for you?

Locator 

Find any product sold by our advertisers, anywhere, at a glance* with the 
Amiga Market product Locator - a new concept rn home shopping 




As company after company goes down owing money or goods to 
their customers, Amiga Market asks “why do they get away with it?* 1 


... oofc iL the scenario - a new advertisement appears 
die computer press from a bright young company 

/of aggressive retailers* low on prices andi long on 
promises of next day delivery, arid its a two or three page 
extravaganza. 

Surety such a btygjht, obviously expensive advert could only 
tome from a tig company? And just look at the huge number 
of products on offer.. This outfit must have a warehouse the 
size of Wembley! 

Now look at the other side of the conn. Joe Bfoggs Is a shark 
with a greedy streak a mile wide and scant regard for the pub- 
lit, He sits at an Amiga with a copy of RageStream and con- 
cocts an advertherwent backed up by a company widi all die 
substance of an oral promise - hot ai r. 

He knows a few distributors and can get his hands on the 
peripherals he is advertising, but has no stock to speak of and 
won’t order any untH he sees which products are going Co be 
popular. 

Two possibilities from the opposite extremes of the spec- 
trum, but either one of whkh can be lurking behind an adver- 
tisement from a company the customer has never before used. 

The problem is that there fa '/try little one can do to sort 
the good companies from the bad One can phone them and 
do some fishings ask around, or simply wait six months and see 
rf they’re still trading, but in die end usually the only way io 
test a mail order company's mettle is to order something from 
them, and this fs often when the innocent customer's night- 
mare begins. 

Though the majority of Amiga mail order outfits are genuine 
and make ail efforts to ensure prompt delivery, efficient techni- 
cal support and refunds where required, a minority of disrep- 
utable, dishonest companies will take orders and money even 
when they know they are going down the tubes* or - rurety, it 
has to be admitted — wHI trade from the off as the equivalent of 
mail order thieves. 

Too many companies take orders by cheque and credit card 
only for the goods ordered not id turn up, and the first thing 
many customers know of this is when the company goes bust, 
at which time they take i back seat in the queue of creditors 
waking for payment 

Shouldn't the government be doing something ah*uc this sit- 
uation? Time aftef time, it seems, the sa™ dodgy businessmen 
(to award them an undeserved accolade) crap up in industries 
across the economy to start companies which trade for a few 


months, then go into liquidation -owing thousands to creditors 
and customers alike, 

If a motor iit consistently breaks the rules of the road, he or 
she is banned for a period, sometimes for life, yet there is no 
requirement for business people to pass tests before they are 
set lopse m the unsuspecting public* nor do they lose their 
right to trade if they show dhey are incompetent or dishonest 
When a company fa taken Into liquidation by its own direc- 
tors, those directors will often escape personal liability for 
debts occurred by the company, and while this is a protection 
which is vital for entrepreneurs to be encouraged to cake risks, 
those who gamble irresponsibly with other people's money are 
too often allowed to escape scot-free. 

Only when a company’s directors are taken to court and 
declared personally bankrupt do they have to prove them- 
selves worthy of the right to trade once more. 

In the vast majority of cases,, this does not happen, and 
when a company is registered as a limited company the direc- 
bon have little or no liability in my case- 

What is dear is that some government agency, such as a 
Department of Trade and Industry ombudsman or the existing 


Offke of Trading Standards, should be appointed to check up on 
existing businesses md to examine the circumstances of a failed 
company when asked to by creditors or out-of-pocket 
customers. 

If these circumstances showed that the directors acted widv 
out due regard to ethical business practice (assuming such a 
dhing exists in the TOs) or to the interests of their creditors and 
customers, both of whom invest money and trust in a company, 
then the directors' licence” to trade should be withdrawn for a 
punitive period or until such time as they can show themselves 
once again fit to warrant the trust of the public. 

Encouraging private industry and the entrepreneurial spirit is 
one thing - allowing crooks and thieves to pose as genome trust- 
worthy business people is quite another. Only by tightening cht 
present JnisEtr-jftim attitude to business regulation, will ehu situa- 
tion be changed. 

Gnty through che continued pressure of disgruntled cus- 
tomers - perhaps writing to their MPs, perhaps complaining to 
the TSO - wdl such regu lation be introduced. 

You know what to do the next t*ne a feox-shiftir takes your 
money and runs, don't you?

ADI French 


Anyone who's three million yean old ts bound to know a 
thing or two unless they've been comatose for the past 
couple of million, and it appears that friendly eatra-terres- 
trial ADI knows quite a lot. 

No matter that he originated in a large grey asteroid 
called ME 23 - this rather cute, ET type character whose 
animated head appears near the top left of the screen has 
knowledge of a great many earthly things, too. 

Ore thing he knows - and what we're concerned with 
here - is how to teach French to English kids aged from 1 1 
up to } 5 (and adults, too, I've noticed!). 

ADI French applications come in four age groupings - 
11 to 12, 12 to 1 3, 1 J to 14 and 1 4 to 1 5, and are in har- 
mony with National Curriculum French lor secondary 
school children. 

Rather than the no frills, let's-get-omwithdhe-iesson 
approach of some educational programs (and teachers'), 
there are rewards in the Form of animations and games 
which make the learning that much easier 

ADi provides an inventive and entertaining interface. 
He occasionally gets angry if you click your mouse pointer 
on him too many times, falls asleep if he gets no input for 
a while, and ticks you off if he suspects you're being 
sloppy in your response to his questions. Eut most of the 
time, tie's very helpful and informative. 

When you buy an ADI application - and the range, inci- 
dentally, also includes English and Maths for similar age 
groupings - you get more than the average education 
package otters. 

There are two disks - one containing the API "environ- 
menl" and the other the application, or lessons., First, you 
load the environment. This in itself provides many facili- 
ties, including a pop-up calculator, notebook and diary, 
and facilities to write a letter to disk lor a friend who also 
has ADI, or to read a letter from a friend, using passwords 
for secrecy. 

I mere are also several documents that can be brought 



A large and varied selection 
of equipment comes under 
scrutiny from the AC team 


to the screen, complete with animations, ort a variety of 
subjects like computing, proverbs and sayings, the water 
cycle and volcanoes, and, Initially, one game that you can 
play purely for entertainment. 

The number of games to choose from increases as you 
earn points during application work, up to a maximum of 
nine. * 

The ADI environment has a J1 control strip ,r of icons 
across the bottom of the screen, through which every- 
thing can be accessed. For those who prefer, function 
keys can be used instead. There is an environment for 





each of the age groupings (which, as you may havc- 
guessed, correspond to secondary school "years"' seven to 
ten), and you can use as many available applications as 
you like with each environment. 

If you click on the first icon, or press FI, you will be 
asked if you want art existing application, or if you want a 
new one. - unless you're using ADI for the first time and 
you haven't installed an application yet, in which case the 
only option is a new application, 

Vou r re then prompted to change to your application 
disk - though hard drive users will not have this inconve- 
nience once applications are installed. 

So much for the environment - what are the actual 
lessons like? I dipped into french for all Four age group- 
ings and found the programs remarkably good. 

Not being noted for my linguistic ability, l made 
rather heavy use of the help system (as ADi kept telling 
me, that's what it's there for) and was soon able 
to move parts of jumbled sentences around to form 
proper ones, chooses correct sentence endings, answer 
"vrai" or Taus" (true or false) to English translations of 
French sentences, and click correct meanings of 
given words. 

Each application is divided into chapters, 
which in turn are divided into sub-c hapten, For instance, 
on the french 13/14 disk, Chapter 6; Services is divided 
Into At the Post Office, Making a Telephone Call and At 
the Bank. 

The lessons are easy to follow, and well-geared to the 
National Curriculum for the years they are aimed ah 

Sound is not a particularly strong point - there's little 
apart from the odd whistly noise from ADi - though that's 
hardly important in an educational program for older 
children. 

However, one would have thought a subject like 
french would lend itself to some sampled or recorded 
speech. Perhaps this wilt come in time. 

The ADI character is fine for younger children, but a 
15-year-old I asked to try It out was not terribly

Al 200 hard drive 

vVilh the new A 1200 having an internal IDE hard drive 
controller built in, several companies are now marketing 
compatible hard drives. HiQ are one of these compa- 
nies. They have three sizes of drive currently available 
which are 60Mb at £199, BQMb at £249 and 130Mb at 

n 49, 

Unfortunately due to size limitations inside the A 1200 
you can only fit a 2 .Sin hard drive in and as usual the 
smaller something is the more expensive rt is, the drives 
which HiQ supply are made by Western Digital who are 
about to release a new improved version al their drive. 

When you purchase one of their drives you get the 
drive, a ribbon cable, instructions and hard drive instal- 
lation software. Fitting the hard drive is a reasonably 
easy job if you can use a screwdriver - all you really have 
to do is remove the case, connect the ribbon cable to 
the pins on the motherboard and to the hard drive, and 
away you go; 

IDE interfaces ace capable of controlling two driveSj 
but you would need a different cable which shouldn't 
be too difficult to get hold of. 

The mam problem with fitting two drives is the lack 
of space inside the machine, but it would be possible Lo 
connect a longer cable and run it through the unused 



Click on the arrow until

port on the back of the A 1 200 to an external drive fitted In 
a box, 

The only problem you will encounter in fitting the hard 
drive yourself Is the fact that it will invalidate your war- 
ranty, By the time you read this though there should be 
several companies who are authorised to fit hard drives 
into the new Al 200 without invalidating your warranty. 

Most companies at the moment are offering lo lit their 
drives for you and then give you their awn warranty, but 
this does not include on-site maintenance. So if your 
A 1200 then goes faulty your will have to return it to the 
dealer you purchased the drive from. 

The drive we had from HiQ for this review was a £0Mb 


version with a transfer rate af about 400k per second and 
an access time of aFound 14 to 16ms. As mentioned earlier 
Western Digital are about to update their drives so this 
could mean a speed increase an both access times and 
transfer rates. 

Once you have youi drive lilted it's time to prepare it 
and formal it. This can get a little confusing if you're new 
to hard drives, but the software provided with HiQ's drive is 
quite easy to operate. 

The main problem you will encounter on the prepara- 
tion side of the hard drive is the fact that every time you try 
telling the software you have installed an IDE drive it refuses

to recognise it This is caused by the fact th^t the A1200 
thinks its IDE interface is really a SCSI interlace. 

So when propping a drive in ihe AT 200, simply tell the 
software to look for a SCSI device and not an IDE one. After 
lotting that out you then have to decide how many parti- 
tions you want. Some people create two partitions - one 
about 10Mb for the Workbench, and the rest of the drive 
for the second partition,. 

Once you have it prepped .ind formatted* you can us? 
the install software on the disk you get with the drive to 
install ail your Workbench, 

lt r s one of the easiest drives to install and excellent value 
For money, If you're after one for your A1 200, you won't go 
far wrong with this. 


sion, but includes much more detail on individual plants. 
The Botanical version would be more suited io people 
who are in the plant oi flower trade such as garden cen- 
tres and horticultural clubs. 

To run this program you need at least 1,5Mb of RAM 


and two disk drives, although we ran the program on an 
ASOO+ with 3Mb RAM and a GVP hard drive. 

it has to be said that using it from floppy drive can 
become rather slow, so a hard drive is definitely recom- 
mended. 

To install PFA5 onto hard disk you simply create m 
empty drawer and rename it as anything you want* then 
copy all the files from the three disks which Pf AS comes 
on into your new drawer: 

You then have to add three assign statements to your 
startup-sequence. The assign statements tell PF AS where 
to find all of Its files. You can add the commands with 
almost any text editor - this procedure is explained in 
great detail in the manual. 

Once you have added the assign statements you have 
to reboot your machine to make the statements active. 
Running the program is then a simple matter of double 
clicking on its icon. 

Even though we ran it from hard drive it still took sev- 
eral minutes to toad. The main reason for this ii that the 
program has to load all nl the different page layouts into 
memory first. 

Although this takes more time than just loading one at 
a time it makes it much taster when actually searching for 
individual plants. 

Using Plants for all Seasons, you can recall files on 
plants by either their common or Latin names - this makes 
recalling files quite easy for someone with very little plant 
knowledge, ie me! 

Once you have typed in the name of the plant you wish 
to look up r its main details will be displayed on-screen. 
You can scroll around the window viewing such things as

Plants for all Seasons 

Plants for all Seasons is, as you have probably guessed, 
aimed at gardeners, garden centres or people with a horti- 
cultural interest Its a database program used to store vari- 
ous information on plants Ol all kinds. 

The company who produce this program also produce a 
botanical version which is similar to this, the Gardener ver-

the plant's height, width, classification and a small 
description of how looks. Some plants have other files 
associated with them like pictures, environment, growth 
and cultivation. 

If a plant has a sub-file connected to it, simply click 
on the appropriate box like Cultivation - you will then 
be presented with all the information about cultivating 
the particular plant. If it didn't have such a file attached 
to it you could then add the information for future refer- 
ence, 

PFAS has 1 P 0Q0 plants indexed with ten pictures - 
quite a few of these files contain sub hies as mentioned 
earlier, it was written using SuperBase 4, so it is possible 
to buy SuperBase and customise the layout or even add 
fields of information which you require but PFAS does 
not already have. 

When loaded it has an easy to understand layout, 
which means that learning how to use this program 
Lakes very little time indeed - that's a good thing as the 
manual spends more time explaining how to use your 
Amiga than the program, going into such detail as how 
to upgrade your machine and explanations of error 
screens. 

One of the most unusual things about PFAS is the 
way it is an on-going project, that is to say it's not fin- 
ished nor can it ever be. As new strains of plants appear 
they will need adding to the program to keep it up to 
date. 

The writers are asking people who buy this program 
to send in information which is not already included in it 
and in return if used the person responsible wifi receive 
royalties according to how much information they send 
m and hew important it is. 

This makes buying this program more like joining a 
massive library of plant-related information. Once you 
are a registered user you will be sent information on 
data disks containing fifes on plants which are not 
already included. These disks cost L7, not including 
postage and packmg.. 

As well as storing ail this information about plants, 
PFAS also has the facility to store names and addresses 
of garden centres, and even gardening books. All in all 
this program has been well designed making it easy to 
use and update, although you would have to be an 
extremely keen gardener to want it.

Studio Printer 
Software 

Ever created a master piece of Amiga art only to see 
your picture turned into a muddy mess or worse? Well 
Studio Printer is designed to help. It is a software pack- 



AftuVi Market 


April 1993 




age which when installed creates a custom printer driver 
suited to your particular printer which is not only much 
improved over the Workbench drivers but is also more 
controllable. 

The driver is designed to replace the existing 
Workbench one, so it can be used by other applications. 
But the new driver offers greater features and flexibility 
when used directly from Studio. 

Studio offers features like the ability to print pictures in 
up to 16.7 million colours, load and print virtually any IFF 
file like IFF 24 bit, HamB and EHB. .Also you can print in 
256 greyscale which at present is a vast improvement 
over the existmg 16 greyscales that the Amiga can print 
in. 

Before you can use Studio you have to install it. This 
can be done virtually automatically, with the software 
making most of the decisions. 

When you start, the software will ask what kind of 
printer you have - it will create a driver and place it in 
your printer's drawer. It will then put the main program 
in a specified drawer, 

Studio has drivers for virtually all dot matrix printers, 
DeskJets and laser printers, although it doesn't eonLain 
one tor the Canon Bubble|ets, If you have a Canon then 
you must contact Canon lor their standard driver for an 
Amiga, 

As well as being a good program for printing graphics, 
Studio has a special driver for use with the PageStream 
DTP package and the HP LaserJet which offers resolutions 

up to 600 dpi. 

Once installed you should have the printer driver 
Studio has created in your printers drawer, a Studio prefs 
program in your prefs drawer and also the main Studio 
program in the directory you specified. Now you simply 
select the new printer driver from your standard 


Workbench printer prefs program. Judging by the number 
of letters we gel about printer problems, software like- th 
should do well. People struggle to find the correct printi- - 
driver for their printer. Also packages like DPaint give little 
control over printing, which can lead to very poor images 
being produced. If say you have an HP Deskfet 500C them

after instiling 5tudio you can select the new driver in you 
printer prets then load DPairt or any package which you 
wish to print from and produce a printout as usual. 

Studio's new driver should produce some improved 
picture quality but it's best to print out pictures directly 
from the Studio software as then you will be able to take 
total control of how your image is printed. 

Whin you load Studio you will be presented with a life 
requester asking which file you wish to print out, You will 
then be presented with a screen containing a large grid 
with a small box in the Lop left-hand comer. 

This small outlined box is your file - you can drag the 
box to almost any size enabling you to print a standard 
A4 size picture on several pieces making your picture into 
poster size. 

When you adjust the bo* to print the picture as a 
poster the soltware will work out how many pieces of 
paper wifi be needed and then proceed to print each part 
of the picture on a different piece of paper - you then 
stick all the pieces together. 

As already mentioned, Studio can print 24-bit images if 
they are saved out as FFFs, but the trouble with tiles of this 
kind is their size. 

If a picture file ii 5Mb and your machine only has 1Mb 
then Studio wifi still be able to print it as it can print files 
without having to load a If of the file in at once. 

Once you have your image loaded and have set how 
large you want your printout, you can then start to make 
any adjustments to dither patterns, colour correction, DPI 
and paper dimensions, Once you think these are set cor- 
rectly you just press the Print button. When Studio starts 


printing ft only loads in part of the image and 
prints that section, then it moves on to the next section 
and so on. 

This sounds as though it would make the printing 
slower but it doesn't probably because as it is loading arid 
processing the printer is printing the previous 
information. 

Although I didn't find the printing over-fast it was defi- 
nitely farter and much better in quality than you would 
get printing from a standard Workbench printer driver. 

You can obtain best results when you own either a 
laser or Desk |et printer as most of the Workbench driven, 
around for these are rather poor and don't take advan- 
tage of their more advanced features. 

If once you have printed an image you think it r s too 
dark or too red then there are plenty of buttons and slid- 
ers to help you fine tune your printer driver. All of the 
more advanced options are well explained in the manual, 
which goes into great detail on some sections. 

Using this program will not give you bn 111 ant printouts 
straight away as line tuning it to your printer can take 
same time, but with a good read through the manual and 
a bit of trial and error with the settings your prints should 
start to improve quite considerably, 




Pro Punter 

How do you make a Irowoed-upon vice into a perfectly 
acceptable computer aided hobby/investment scheme? 
Easy, make it into a computer program and flog it as a 
high brow professional package - exactly whal they've 
done with Pro Punter, a very well respected horse racing 
predictor program. 

first created in 19B7, Pro Punter has risen to 
be the biggest and more or less only predictor program 
available. For the first time ever it is available on the 
Amiga. 

After booting up you are fated with several mouse- 
driven menus. They alL Itook fairly baffling, and a quick fid- 
dle results in confusion! 

Referring to the manual, the light dawns lhat the vast 
majority of the program entails nothing but the entering 
of Figures and facts about the horses themselves - form, 
weight, age, uncles,,, the list is endfess. 

There is also a database into which you have tu input 
the physical characteristics of all the race courses which 
your horses are going to be running on. 

This entails inputting no less than ten different fields of 
information for each course. This is jusL the beginning » 
win history, overnight data, sire and dam history.,, the list 
is endless. 

Don't get me wrong, Pro Punter is a very clever peice 
of programming but you must have some conviction to 
keep the endless typing of Figures up. 

Obviously this inputting of information get easier and 
less frequent the more comprehensive your Pro Punter 
becomes but it is tedious to start off with. 

&ul there is dual effect - yes, Pro Punter will give you 
estrm aliens on races based upon the lacts but by the time 
you have the program up and running to some degree of 
sophistication, you'll practically he Lester Piggot anyway. 

II you are going to go out and buy Pro Punter to make 
cash fast, don't bother. You will have to get into typing, 
reading the Racing Post and various other things. 

There are so many outside factors that it r s hard to 
believe that it's possible to make that much money off Pro 
Punter. It can't give you luck, it can only give you a well 
educated guess based upon the facts. 



Word Construction Kit 

With the growing concern over the number of illiterate 
school leaven this might be a welcome addition to many 
parents' software libraries, 

it's been quite a while since we've seen an education 
package that deals with older primary school and early 
secondary school rather early primary school kids. 

As you already gathered, Word Construction Kit is 
aimed at one particular point in a child's career instead of 


Amigo M\ rk«i Aprit 1993 














Word Conduction Kit

being tinned at general learning like Noddy and other 
such recent releases. It is also geared to support the UK 
National Curriculum and several other English speaking 
country's standards. 

Word Construction Kit aims to help word recognition 
and vocabulary. The programmers believe that the learn- 
ing process is a lot quicker when the student has either 
the word groups or sounds or patterns to identify. 

5o the program goes through the process of repeating 
similar word groups and phonetics. Eventually this should 
build instantaneous recognition. It also enables the stu- 
dent to make up imaginary words from phonetic groups 
like Lcwjs Caroll's Bflllig. 

lt J s split into the construction of seven buildings, each 
needing a different mixture of phonetic and recognition 
skills. Each of the different blocks in the building needs a 
word to be formed for it to be Said. 

The fits! major pitfall is that the title is given to each of 
Lhe sections. They all h<w very daunting names such as 
Consonant Condominiums or Homophone Observatory. 
That alone is enough to put off many a student. 

The last thing a pupil needs is to be baffled from the 
off. Once the fear of the long words has been overcome 
the student will realise that the exercises are very simple. 

The only typing necessary is the entering of the pupil's 
name right at the very beginning, from then on Is a case 
of choosing letter groups with the mouse pointer. The dif- 
ferent construction sites are shown on It a map from 
which pupils may choose at will the Exercise they 
wish to do, 

After this has been chosen the pupil is faced with the 
bare bones of a building - scaffolding and so on. At the 
bottom of the screen are listed the tool icons with which 
the building is to be built, if the pupil gel a word right 
then a section o! the building wilt be built 

l know it sounds mundane but it is actually quite 
rewarding, and there are also some good speech samples 
that encourage you when you get it right. 

The first tool available is the construction icon which 


will launch you straight into the group selection. The next 
is the rebuild option. This allows you to knock down com- 
pleted sections and do them again, and Is designed to 
make the pupil a bit more confident. 

The rest of the toots listed at the bottom of the screen 
are for helping the pupil. The test option allows him or her 
to test out the word he or she has created; If the word is 
correct then it is accepted as part of the report if not then 
they can go on to change it with out a burnish on the 
record. 

Obviously this can be abused by students - they may 


just keep guessing until they get the word right, but hon- 
esty isn't something that an English program can teach. 

The sound option makes the machine pronounce the 
full word once you have created it. That's all well and 
good but the Amiga version uses the awful Workbench 
voice synthesizer that rarely pronounces the word 
coherently. 

Throughout Word Construction Kit the pupil is being 
assessed - how we'l he or she actual did is presented on a 
report card at the end. 

But this is an on-going assessment. If it was oniy one 
particular section which dragged the pupil down then 
would be possible to go back to the rebuild section and 
try and do better, this would in turn up the scoring. 

After the pupil has successful gone through one or 
more of the exercises it is possible to print out a score 
sheet - the perfect reward for children who are using the 
program at school. It would also be an easy way for the 
teacher to keep a close eye on the child's progress without 
having to write reports and so on. 

As the program progresses the word that has to be 
constructed get harder, going from two phonetic groups 
to three requiring the pupils to make such words as "mil' 
anthropic" and other words of scary length. 

Word Construction Kit isn't a half bad education pro- 
gram* There is a lot more depth than usual and a better 
range so it doesn't pigeonhole itself. Also it doesn't patro- 
nise pupils - a very off-putting aspect of a lot oF education 
soFlware.

DTP 


Professional Page 1.0 


In In I ate it version, Gold Disk's Professional Page *s an 
extremely powerful package offering both flexibility to the 
advanced user and ease of use to the beginner. 

Its AEexx-based: Genie functions make possible xbe auto= 
mated design of pages and quick control of box and text effects, 
and iu direct hot links to FfroDraw 10,. the Article Editor {a 
bundled text editor), and ProCalc give it an integrated power, 
albeit wicjh mostly Gold Disk products. 

Drawbacks indude the program’s sometimes fess than intu- 
itive keyboard abort- cuts and Its strict adherence to boxes, 
which can restrict design flexibility a little. 

In addition, Pro Page continues to rely exclusively on 
CompuGraphic fonts, despite the abundance of excellent Adobe 
Type I shareware fonts, and although Gold Disk have tried to 
address this problem with a font converter utility, the conver- 
sion process will not work with fonts which have .PFM files, 
insisting instead on the ,AFM files found in ofTKial (and expen- 
sive) Adobe forts, 

These grumbles aside, FroPage 3,0 is a powerful top-end 
Amiga DTP package which always deserves long and thoughtful 
consideration before the user plumps fora package-

PageStream 2.2 1 


SoftLogik's ugly duckling has, over thE last year, swanned Its way 
to the top in The battle with ProPa^E due to several bug-fixing 
revisions and a totally new look and feel with v2.2. In Terms of 
features, little now remains to choose between the top pick- 
les, hut in terrain areas, FageBtream has a definite edge. 

User friendliness is the program’s first advantage. VErsion 2.2 
has been thoroughly designed with a Workbench 2.04 look and 
feel, leading to very intuitive keyboard controls - everything 
does what you’d expect it to do - and dean, simple requesters 
All these design shenanigans, though not a big issue with 
prospective buyers, tend to renlly hit home once the package is 
used for any length of time. 

PageStream is also rather more flexible dhnn its main rival m 
the range of fonts and artwork It will accept- Both 
CompuGraphic and Adobe Type I fonts art instantly usable, and 
the package has a font converter to enable the use of Apple 
Macintosh non-standard Adobe fonts. 

When purchased with The Hot links Editions package* 
PageStream has instant Dynamic Data Exchange capabilities to 
match those offered by PraFage's Aftexx Genies, with the added 
advantage that the system is open ended, 

Hotlmks has still to be taken on board by other major soft- 
ware houses, but if it does Cake off. POgeStream's support for it 
will give the SoftLogik product a whole new dimension, 



Saxon Publisher 1.2 


$axon Publisher is a rather unique product in that It has a very 
different approach to the user Than the other two mam pack- 
ages. The interface e$ not based on Workbench 2-04 standards 
and doesn’t have the standard easily recognised icons used by 
FVoPage so it is initially a more difficult program to get into. 

Saxon does* however, have a few unique tricks up its 
sleeves, It will* for instance enable the use oi some very 
colourful gradiaied fills, both on boxes and as text effects, and 
has superb irregular box control 

Unlike ihe other contenders, Saxon frame? and boxes tan 
be polygons of any number of sidles and) decidedly weird 
shaped text boxes are therefore possible. 

This £ives Saxon an edge when designing high impact one* 
df documents such as posters and flyers, hue the package is 
not as suited to multi- page documents as the ocher big two. 

Recommended for the colour fanatic and the user with 
advertisements or posters in mind, Saxon is probably best left 
alone when the user is considering marine or new&Lecter 
design. Screen refresh rate is a lot quicker than in either 
FroPage or PageStream. but Saxon insists on interlace mode, 
making a flicker fixer and multisync monitor compulsory 
purchases 



PageSetter 2 

An old, non-,PostScript: program for the amateur user, 
PageSetter 2 ri restricted to simple documents and has few of 
chg powerful features found on the high-end packages. 

It is affordable and easy to use, but for anything other than 
low quality famines or the ubiquitous parish newsletter it ts a 
□TP no-go. 

PageSetter is best looked upon as a purchase- for those 
wishing to dabble in DTP or who want better layout options 
than those offered by their wordpracessors. A good introduc- 
tion to Amiga DTP but not a package with which to make 
your fortune.

PageSetter 3 


The first AGA-compacible DTP package, PS3 offers a ProFage- 
likc interface with the basic DTP tools and a very colourful dis- 
play, The result is a slick, easy to use package capable of i 
variery of simple DTP tasks, 

Though not one For the professional or those look mg to pro- 
duce multi- page documents, PageSetter 3 should be pcrfeaU 
adequate for the needs of most home and enthusiasts users.

The range af shareware PostScript fonts offered by EMC has 
expanded rapidly from a good selection of SaftLogLk-style font 
exclusively for use within PageStream to a large collection of 
Type I and CompuGraphk fonts for use in all packages. 

The quality of fonts can vary, but as each fcwe disk selectior 
costing only £ 12,50 can contain dozens of typefaces, there are 
usually plenty to suit all tastes, 

Some exceptional general purpose fonts can he found amor ?

The GTS range af fonts is nat as wide as that Offered by EMC, 
but the quality of what is on offer is every bit as good. The 3? 
fonts available on the first GTS fort pack, available 
in Compu Graphic or Adobe Type I format, can be used 
within all the major DTP packages, and contains, n, couple of 
useful standard fonts as well as the more whacky 
occasional typefaces. 

More font pack? are on the way as the shareware fonts war 
heats up, so the ne*t few months should be a good time for 
Amiga DTP users, especially if the quality of future releases 
matches what we've seen so far. 


Ray tracers

The Impulse offering Is a contender for the crown as king of 
the tracers, and would probably win were it not for two areas 
m which the program falls down. It's not the easiest to use {a 
fact not helped by the badly organised manual),, and it still has 
problems with dodgy anti-aliasing which can mar the otherwise 
excellent output. 

In the program's favour, it has a superb, easy on the eye 
interface and a modular approach which, once mastered, 
makes the process of creating objects, scenes, and animations, 
very simple. 

in particular, the organic modeHei* (called the Forms editor) 
is excellent, as is the Action editor, where animation are set 
up and controlled. 

With its interface, special effects, and modular approach. 
Imagine? 2.0 is the first chotoe for 24-bit animators, though per- 
haps not the best for static images.

Real 3D 

In its latest incarnation. Real 3D is the best choice both for 
banners and those in need of the best quality static images. 
The program has none of the anti-aliasing problems associated 
with Imagine 2.0, and is much easier to use, though slightly less 
flexible than its main rival. In an attempt to steal Imagine's 


thunder, the latest version of Real 3D now has object morphing 
and organic modelling, though the latter feature is not os goad as 
Imagines Forms editor, and it still has by far the best approach to 
texture and brush mapping. Animation is a little less easy than 
using Imagine s Action and Stage editors, but once mastered i$ 
capable of producing excellent results. 

A rrjendly program with a manual to match and superb output. 
Real 3D just pips Ima^ne 2.0 as the best all-round tracer, though 
the dedicated 24-bit artist will probably end up buying both. 



Caligari 

Rather more of a 3D modeller than a ray tracing package, CaHgari 
is adopt at producing clean, scan line images of great detail, chough 
not as goad as Imagine or Real 3D in the organic modelling or ray 
tracing departments. For producing futuristic, clean cut Imagery at 
speed, though, the Caligari interface is ideal. 

Although emptying the orthographic display used by most, 
Caligari * main screen is a ID plane over which the user positions; 
objects. Ths approach makes getting one's head round 3D a>-Qcdi- 
rates somewhat easier* and is a great help when buildup scenes such 
as complete rooms where the relative positioning of objects i$ crucial 

For animation, the program has path tneaiion and camera con- 
trols to match the other top packages, and its output can be 
found on many a German cable TV screen, but as a tracer for Che 
artist in search of weird effects and original visuals, Caligari is 
probably not the best choice. 

Available in professional variant with an animation module, or a 
consumer version without many of the power features, Caligan 
nan be either a very expensive TV cool and 3D GAD package, or a 
goc-d budget 3D modeller for the enthusiast.

Aladdin 4D 


The limitations inherent in Aladdin's object creation tools make It 
less of a mainstream contender than a specialist in its field, which 
is the creation of unique gas** and superb texture control. 

Using Aladdin, it is possible to generate images which no other 
ray tracer could produce without the aid of a paint package to 
retouch and add gases. The only big drawback ii speed, which tan 
be slow when the package’s more advanced features are brought 
into play.

Monitors 


For most people computing invariably starts with a portable tde- 
■ ision as their window into the virtual new world, Although fine 
for games, there comes a point when a portable simply doesn't 
do the machine or the user fustice. 

Literally any productivity package is taken co the next dimen- 
sion of usability with the addition of a monitor. Wordprocessing 
for example becomes a pleasure rather than a blurred, squinting 
exercise in sado-masochism. 

In short* a decern monitor is worth every penny and in moni- 
tor terms they don’t come much better than the Phrlips 
7CM32D9 multisync. This particular unit is ideal for new owners 
equipped with either A60D or A 1 200s, as both machines can take 
advantage of the productivity modes offered by the ECS and 
AGA. 


Although you may be tempted to plumb for a med-res monl- 
tor such as the Philips CMEB33 or Commodore 10845, don't 
even consider It! There's literally no comparison between a med- 
res and multisync and after you've used a multisync having to 
endure a med -res. mon icor is a real pain. 

And for the first time ever a quality multisync - alias the 
7CM3209/Bniliance - actually comes in cheaper than its med-res 
alternative, and stranger still, both units are from the same com- 
pany - weird... 

If you're working on an older machine which doesn’t boast an 
option to employ productivity my personal choice is definitely 
the new style Commodore IM45 - at j.ujft £19$ its easily the 
best value - and in my opinion the best med-res regardless of 
cost
