Amiga sales 
in UK are a 
record 

* RECORD number of Amigas were sold 
- Britain Id 1 1 year but despite this. 
■ ilfucturlng and inventory wrfte- 
khwnif resulted in disappointing second 
! rter financial figures for 
Commodore,, 

The company reports that 340,000 
- were sold into the UK distribu- 
t network although some parts of 
•E^e performed less well. 

The US company reported a net kiss 
" £77,2 mil I ion for its second quarter 
■December 31, and during the period 
ufei ftU from $371*4! million to 1237.7 

tf the comparable quarter of 1991 
manufacturer posted a 540.1 mil- 

Koii profit. 

The lirm says £50 million was spent 
on restructuring their operation, These 
included redundancy payments 
n Germany and Hong Kong and 
viariing up a new Philippines 
factory* 


EC threat to budget 
software prices 


BUDGET software may cost more rf a 
European Commission move to slap a levy 
of up to 30 per cent on imported disks goes 
ahead. 

The directive follows an appeal to the £C 
by Diskmaj. a body representing European 
disk manufacturers, who are concerned by 
the number of Cheap far Eastern imports. 

According to trade newspaper C7W, the 
Commission has already reviewed the situa- 
tion twice, but the directive's implementa- 
tion requires the support of each member 
country, 

Some sections of the industry are now 
campaigning to split the support, and 
communication has begun with the UK r s representative, Sir Leon 
Brittan. One industry figure told Amiga Computing that the question 
of retail price rises depends entirely on how much is added to disk 
costs, 

if it was only a small increase most companies could probably 
absorb it, A high levy would make if necessary to pass rises on to 


the public, Meanwhile folio wing the report 
in March's Amigo Computing which 
revealed how buyers could save up to £500 
on the price of an Amiga by buying abroad, 
Commodore boss Kelly Sumner says there 
are good business reasons for the massive 
price differences between Amigas sold in 
Britain and other parts of Europe. 

Britons pay more, he said, because of 
higher retailers' margins - understandable 
bearing in mind that many have been hit 
by high interest rates. 

Other reasons include higher UK tax and 
better support, with a year's on-site war- 
ranty for faulty machines. Britain, how- 
ever, now has one of the lowest interest rates in Europe, and 
Germany's slightly lower tax makes a difference of about £10 on 
the price of an A 1200. 

And the fact remains that if you are looking for a new Amiga, 
and are not too worried about the level of support you receive, 
you'll save cash by nipping over the Channel.

A4000 BOOSTS CITY'S OLYMPIC BID 


MANCHESTER 2000, the body fighting to 
bring the Olympic Games to Britain In 
seven years' time, has bought an A4GOO 
and Scala presentation software to assis-t

end of March when a 16 -strong Technical 
Enquiry Commission visited the Northern

Mike Dytole ; international marketing 
director of Manchester 2000, stressed Lhe 


importance of quality presentation to the 
bid. "We belceve Manchester's arguments 
for hosting the games are very, very 
strong, So it's crucial Lo present them in 
the slickest way," he said,

choice, We can use it on the Barco sys- 
tem in the presentation suite or ship it off

"The excellent print quality and speed 
Ottered by the Stylus BOO has created a

and marketing boss Peter Turner. 

"Initial reactions to the printer indicate 
that Epson can expect to become a major 
supplier of high performance law-cost 
inkjet printers/ 



healtn care,, transport, security, architec- 
ture and other sectors to- put their presen- 
tations on the machine. 

Said Commodore's multimedia sales

Industry fights 


violence claims 

THE computer games industry has hit back against new national media claims about the £5j 
effects some leisure software has on its players. A World in Action documentary - /i*^ 1 
Welcome to the Danger Zone - claimed that video games could cause children to 
develop anti-social or violent tendencies. S&rL* 

The claims were picked up by several newspapers, and strengthened by criticism of 
video games Irom teachers, unions and parent groups. But computer trade body 
ELSPA took an exceptionally dim view erf an article published in The Daffy Star, react- 
Ing with a complaint to the Press Complaints Commission, 

Headlined breeding a nation of monsters 1 ', the story linked a violent society with the 
popularity of video games and ran alongside a picture of a murdered toddler's grieving rela- 
tives. 

ELSPA described the report as "utterly unacceptable journalism*. They are now plan- 
ning a campaign to help local education authorities and teachers understand the issue,

CUNNING COMPUTER CRIME 


PROTECTING computers from theFt, 
copying of confidential information and 
malicious input such as viruses is the aim 
of HF Computer Lock, a new device from 
Sweden, 

It consists of two plates which can be 
inserted into the Amiga's floppy disk 
drive and secured with a padlock. A wire 
can be attached to secure the machine 
to a fixed object. 

Depending on the level of protection 
needed 4 the lock costs between £60 and 
£B5, The British distributor is Scandum 
Instruments (0454 41 £850) 


More battles 
go on-line 

THE company behind several multi-user 
modem games, On-line Entertainment 
(081-558 6114) ha^e just added battle 
simulation Napoleon ics to their system. 

Waterloo, Borodino and Austerlllz bat- 
tles feature 3D graphics and each subor- 
dinate commander and captain has 
built-in artificial intelligence. 

Summer show 
date shifts 

SHOW organiser Westminster Exhibitions 
have re-timed the year's second 
International Computer Show to 
November 19 to 21. The move follows 
several years when the firm held the 
year's second event during the summer. 

It is claimed that more than 85 per cent 
of exhibitors have already booked space. 

"We have decided to go for a 
November show for the first time as a 
result of considerable pressure from our 



exhibitors,* explained Westminster's 
marketing director Julie Collins. 

'Their overwhelming response has 
been that our show provides the greatest 
opportunities and most enthusiastic 
audience of any exhibition in their 
calendar. 

"'Our first pre-Christmas show aims to 
maximise and take full advantage of 
this.' 


InfoChannef 
takes to sea 

CRUISE ship VIS Slatendam of Holland 
America Line has recently installed 
Seal a' s Amiga- based InfoChannel sys- 
tem and a specially developed map sys- 
tem that covers the world. 

The exact position of the ship can be 
viewed on TV monitors in all cabins and 
before each call, InfoChannel displays 
information on the port or city. 

It shows tourist attractions, shopping 
and other facilities on land. Several f er- 
nes in Scandinavia also use the system to

Looking for & way to get your favourite pictures into your 
Amiga? Your bet for easy scanning is a 24-bit flatbed 
scanner such as the Epson E580Q, hut that r s an expensive 
solution. 

If you J re looking for something more reasonably priced, 
check out Migraph's new C5-6000 colour hand scanner. 

This 1549 (£381) hardware and software combination 
will scan up to 26 2,1 44 colours at up to 400 dpi. 

It has a four-inch wide scanning window, so you'll need 
to run it aver a standard-sized sheet twice to scan in the 
entire page, Migraph sells a scanning tray which makes 
lining up the two scans fairly simple. 

The scanner, which attaches to the parallel port of any 
Amiga, has five scan modes - super colour (262,144 
Colours), colour (4,096 colours), greyscale, mono halftone, 


and mono line-art. According to Mi graph, it r s the only 
hand scanner for the Amiga that supports true greyscale 
scanning. Six scanning resolutions, from 50 to 400dpi, are 
supported. 

The scanning software works with Workbench 1.3, 2 
and 3.0, and lully supports the AG A chipset. It requires 
1 Mb ot RAM, but 2 Mb are recommended, 

If you're tired of re-typing text from paper into you 
computer, the C5-6QQC 1 scanner can be used with 
Migraph's OCR software to convert text in scanned graph- 
ics to .Ascii data, which can then be cleaned up in your 
favourite wordprocessor or DTP program. 

For further information on M (graph and its products, 
call (206) 838-4677 or fax (206) 838-4702, 


Cache in your chips 


Looking for a way to speed up that 
sluggish old hard drive? Do you yell 
fl tea-time! ri every time you try to 
load a large program oFf your floppy 
drive? 

If you've got a little RAM to spare, 
5ilicon Prarie Software has the 
solution for you, HyperCache 
Professional is a smart disk-cacheing 
program, similar lo ASDG's old Face 
II. Unlike that program, though, 
HyperCache Professional supports 
hard drives, CD-ROM drives, and just 
about any other device you can 
attach to your Amiga. 

HyperCache speeds disk accesses 
by storing recently read data in RAM. 
When you've read information once, 
it's stored in memory so it can be 
retrieved from speedy RAM If your 
Amiga looks for it again, rather than 
a slower disk drive. 

HyperCache uses an "N-way asso- 
ciative lookahead cache systems In 
plain English, this means that it not 
only keeps recent information in 
memory, but it also actually seeks 
ahead on the disk, so that it can 
actually read new information belore 
you need il. 

This mean that not only do opera’ 
tions like compilations and database 
searches speed up considerably, but 
so do first-time read procedures such 
as opening Workbench window or 
gelling directories of new disks. The 


speedup is considerable. On my 
Amiga 1200, rescanning a directory 
that took seven seconds to scan the 
first time takes less than one second 
with HyperCache running. Speedup* 
with disk-intensive operations such 
as compiling a program in C are 
even more dramatic. 

If you use a disk drive with your 
Amiga (and who doesn't?) you owe 
it to yourself to get HyperCache 
Professional It works on all Amigas 
with Klckstart 1 .2 or greater. You can 


even create a small cache on 512k 
machines, but you need 1Mb or 
more of 8AM to make the program 
really useful. 

HyperCache Professional retails for 
S49.95 (£35) and add S3 for over- 
seas shipping - in US funds. Contact 
Silicon Prarie Software, 2326 Francis 
Street, Regina, Saskatchewan, $4N 
2P? Canada; (306) 352-0358.

MotorollirT 

The veil has been lifted from Motorola''! next-genera 
tlon chip, the 6B060. This powerhouse wilt be con- 
structed from over two million transistors. 

Unlike the 6K040, the 68060 will be manufactured 
using CMOS processes and optimised for 3.3 volt 
operation; this means it should avoid the heat prob- 
lems associated with the 040, and will even be viable 
for use In laptop computers, 

Since the 060 is slated to around the beginning of 
1994, ahout the same time the next-generation 
CMOS Amiga graphics chips are to be unveiled, 
Commodore will have all the parts necessary for a 
killer Amiga laptop, 

The chip has a super- sc alar architecture, and uses 
a dual-pipelined Instruction scheme so that two 
Instructions can execute simultaneously. If the pro- 
gram also uses the floating-point unit (TPU) for 
math 5 work, three instructions can be started in a 
single processor cycle- 

The initial 66MH* version should run at about 100 
million instructions per second (MIPS); a 100MHz 
version is expected later. 


Progressive price 
reductions 

Jealous of the speed of the perky new AS20Os7 How 
would you like to leave the rapid new machine in the 
dust? 

Progressive Peripherals are blowing out their 68040 
accelerator beards for the A50Q, A1SGO/20OO, and A30G0 
at incredibly low prices. 

Some US mail-order dealers ate selling the boards (sans 
RAM) for only S550 (£382). So H you're looking tor a bar- 
gain method for speeding up your classic Amiga, check 
with your local Progressive Peripherals purveyor.

THAT BIT BETTER THAN THE REST 















Cover Disk A 



A mong video digitisers, Rom bo's 
Vidi-Amiga 12 currently stands 
head and shoulders above com- 
petitors ' products which cost twice or 
even three times as much, 

It's fast, smooth and produces out- 
standing picture quality with ease. And 
now it's become a whole lot more power- 
ful because of this special edition of the 
Vidi-Amiga 12 software brought to you 
exclusively by Am/go Crwrrpuf/flg, 

We asked Rombo to make a lew 
changes on your be hail and they came up 
trumps for us, improving an already excel- 
lent product just for your benefit. 

But if you don't already have a Vidi- 
Amiga 12 them's no need to worry, as the 
program on the CoverDisk is a special ver- 
sion that lets you access all of Vidi-Amiga J s 
powerful features except for the grabbing 
fun clio ns - which are disabled in this 
demo. 

New features 

So what's new in v2? For a start there is 
now support for almost every available 
Amiga graphics format, from two-colour 
IFF a!! the way up to HamB, and the ability 
to save in 24-bit as well as 12-bit and all 


Take a first step in 
video digitising with 
a new, improved 
version of 
Rom bo's amazing 
Vidi-Amiga 12 



Digital delights 


to change an image from one Amiga for- 
mat to virtually any Other, including aii 
AG A graphics modes. 

Palette selection and error diffusion 
have also been improved to once more 
increase the quality of Vidi-Amiga 12's 
grabbing and image conversions, More 
functions and image processes have been 
added to the Edit menu and sections of an 
image can now be Cut and pasted, 
Because of overwhelming user 
demand, time-lapse grabbing has been 
added and the user interface and load 


advantage of the Install procedure sup- 
plied by double clicking on the appropri- 
ate kon (Install WB1 ,3 for 
non-Workhench 2 users or Install for 
WorkBench 2 or greater], 

If you want to install the software by 
hand you must be sure to put the 
VidiAmigal2V2.coflfig file in your 5; direc- 
tory and the ARP. library in your Ubs; 
directory. Then drag the VidiAmigaT2

£□ go for it - click on Load and when 
the requester appears load the Stoat file 
from the floppy disk, Hard drive users may 
like to transfer this file across to save a bit 
of loading time later, After a brief pause 
(and a couple of different messages) noth- 
ing appears to have happened! 

But a click on the Carousel button will 
prove this to be wrong, as a new screen 
will appear with a small black and white 
image (which sort of resembles a stoat) in 
the top left corner. 


the regular ILBM (Iff) formats. 

Then there is the considerably 
improved Carousel. Both grabbed 
sequences and external tiles can be loaded 
and displayed (torn here - and the speed, 
direction and extent of playback can be 
easily determined. 

Conversion from one format to another 
is a brand new feature provided by the 
Mix function and the software re now able 


and Save requesters have been greatly 
improved. Now you know what's new, 
let's get going with the demo-. 

If you are running from a floppy disk 
just insert the CoverDisk into your drive 
and reboot your Amiga. Then find the 
Vidi Amiga 12 icon and double click on iL 
In a twinkle the program will be up and 
waiting for your commands. 

If you have a hard drive you can rake 



Grabber Control Panel 



The first thing you should see is a mes- 
sage window overlaying the main Vadi- 
Amigal2 window. Read it and then click 
on the front-to-bick gadget at its top 
rightJhand comer. The main Vldi-AmigalZ 
window should now become fully visible. 

Click on the box labelled Grab and 
nothing happens. That's because the grab 
function is disabled. But no matter, there's 
plenty mure to see.,.. 

However, before we can look any fur- 
ther the first thing we must do is load an 
image, and (surprise,, surprise) we've pro 
vided one for you to play with,. It's a pic- 
ture of your favourite editor, Mr Stoat (just 


Close to the edit 

What about Vidi-Amiga 12's image processing capabilities* Once again, make sure 
you have an image available and then select the Edit button to find out more, 

Now you should see a new menu selection with a number of different names, 
such as Mosaic. Emboss and so on. Each ol these buttons indicates what will hap 
pen to the Image when it H processed, 

Be warned though, some of these operations can rake quite a while to com 
plete, so hang on a moment before you gel too trigger happy! Notice the words 
Cut and Paste? These mean that you can dip a section from an image and paste It 
down somewhere else even on another Image il one is available. 

Use the forward and backward gadgets (marked <1 and !>) to move through 
the currently available images. Load a few of your own or use an animation to try 
this out, 


Picture album 

Although this doesn't look very impres- 
sive the Carousel is actually a very useful 
pan of the software, as we shall see later. It 
is like a picture album, but showing only a 
representation of each image which is cur- 
rently loaded into memory. 

Click on the image and the red border 
will disappear. You have just deselected 
the image. Click again and its red border 
will reappear and the image is once more 
selected. 

Now click on the Play button at the 
right of the tool bar. If you have an AGA-

permanently to disk if you wish. Return to 
the Carousel window and you II see no 
Immediate change, but if you look more 
closely you'll find that where before it said 
"640 x 51 2" in the panel it now says "320 
x 51 2" - the size of your new image. 

Try loading the original stoat image 
once more and press the button labelled 
120 x 51 2T It will revert to J, 640 x 51 2\ 
This is because Vidi-Amiga 1 2 splits loaded 
images up according to their size and res- 
olution so that they will always be com- 


Klondike 

Pete Wiseman 

People who love playing card games are going to love Klondike as it is an extremely 
good version of patience, Klondike has been on the CoverOisk beFore but this new 
version has been improved so much we had to put it on again. 

Patience, for people who don't know, is a card game played by one player. The 
object is to end up with four piles of cards at the top of the screen running from Ace 
to King, in the same suit. 

This version of Klondike allows you to create your own custom card laces and 
backs, using any kind of paint package. To do Hi is, simply load one of the card backs 
which are on this disk into say DPaint, where you can customise the card backs into 
your own design.

Ameko 

C A Revel I 

Ameko is a sort of screen saver but with a 
difference. When you call it up r a window 
will open with a small cat in it and you 
will be greeted with a meaow, If you then 
move yoyr mouse around the box, the 
cal will run after your mouse pointer. 

When you move the mouse pointer 
outside the window, the cal will scratch 
at Ihe edges to try to get to your mouse 
pointer. If you don't move the mouse 
pointer for some time the cat will then 
clean itself and go to sleep. To awaken it 
simply move your mouse. 

We have Included two versions an the 
CowDisk, Ameko_Lo which is the Ickes 
version and also Ameko which is the hi- 
res version. It's best to try both to see 


which looks the best on your particular 
monitor. 

You can alter certain parts by clicking 
once on Ameko's icon and then selecting 
information from your Workbench pull- 
down menus. From hern you can alter 
how large a window Ameko opens up 
into and also how long it takes for the cat 
to go Id sleep.

patible with their neighbours. So you've 
now seen how to load an image and Mix 
it to a new format. But what about 
animations? 

Obviously, since sve can'L grab an ani- 
mation sequence directly with this demo 
vercJan r we'll have Lo supply our own for 
now. 

Load a Deluxe Paint animation ol your 
choice. You should soon see a senes of 
small images in the Carousel - one for 
each of the animation frames.. Make sure 
they are all outlined In red (ie selected) 
and then press Play. 

The animation will play back. You can 
speed it up with the small vertical slider 


and change its direction with 
Forward/Reverse/Bounce. If there are 
more frames than will fit on one page they 
can be accessed by clicking on the red 
and grey triangles located on either side 
oi the viewing area. 

Incidentally, if you'd grabbed a 
sequence of images they would all appear 
in the Carousel * fusL like this animation 
does. Deselect a few frames of the anima- 
tion and press Play again. You'll see that 
playback is now jumpy because the dese- 
lected frames are no longer shown.. 

Press View and full continuity will 
resume, because View plays back all the

Fun School's Wordsearch 

Euro press Software 

This is our third and final module from the Fun School range of educational soft 
ware. Wordsearch Is nol only fun to play but is also educational. 

To load It, double dick on I he Fun School icon. Once loaded the computer ran- 
domly selects a group of words From a particular subject, ie months of the year, 
The computer will then jumble up these words and display them in the box on 
the right of the screen. 

The Idea Is to get your child to try and find all of the words which are hidden 
in the box, from the list on the left of the screen. 

If your child thinks he or she has found a word listed art Ihe box, all ihey have 
to do is click with the left mouse button on the first letter of the word, and drag 
the line lo Ihe Iasi letter of the word they have found. 

They then have lo select from the list on the left the word they think ihey 
have found in the box. 

If ihe child has chosen correctly, the word will be removed from the list. The 
game ends when your child has found all of the words he or she will then be 
asked if they want lo play again. 

If Ir yes" Is selected Iberi the computer will ioad a new sel of words and restart 
Ihe game.

Should have an image captured in your 
Amiga, ready for use as you wish, vidi- 
Amiga 12 doesn't limit you to jusl single 
imaqei - you can also grab sequences. 
To ensure that they are grabbed as 
quickly as possible (to keep the motion as 
fluid as possible) sequences are only 
grabbed in mono, even if the source is 
colour. 

Even so, the images make a good basis 
tor redrawing into your own, animations 
[a process known as ftotoscoping}. If you 
like to draw your original artwork on 
paper you could also use Vidi'Amigal 2 as 
a line tester, allowing you to get fast 
feedback on whether the character 
motion is the way you want it to bE. 

And now that time-lapse grabbing has 
been added it is possible to teil Vidfi-Amiga 
\2 how tong to wait between grabs - any- 
thing from a second to 30 minutes - so 
you can make your own animations of 
(lowers opening, snails racing and so oft, 


frames, regardless Df their selection status. 

I'll leave you to explore the few remaining 
aspects of the Carousel yourself . 

MLet's now examine the Mix functions 
in a little more detail. Make sure you have 
the original Stoat image loaded and select 
Mix. Now try out a few combinations o! 
buttons - hi-res, lo-res, HAM, 256-colour 
- whatever you feel like, 

If your Amiga can't display the results 
you'll be informed about it. Note the 
startling difference that using Error 
Diffusion makes to the quality of a con- 
verted image, especially when you are 
reducing the number of colours it 
contains. 

Remember too that you'll be able to 
keep converting to your heart's content, so 
long as you don't Store the new image, as 
the original is held in memory until it is 
replaced by issuing the Store com i na nd. 

OK, we all know by now that the Grab 
function is disabled on this special version, 
but aren't you just a tiny bit cunous about 
what it does? Good! Til tell you then. This 
is really the main reason for owning a 
Vidi -Amiga 12, because when you con- 
ned a video camera or deck to the Vidh 
Amiga 12 hardware it's possible to create 
great looking images yourseif.

composite or 5-VH5 video output 'S soii-

Free is a small program which keeps you informed on how 
much memory you have and also how much is »n use at any 
time. It will also tell you how much free space is left on any 

o I th e disks in your disk drives. 

With this program being so small, you can toad it every 
lime you load Workbench - you will then be able to keep a 
check on available memory and disk space at any time. 

If you hold down the right mouse button you will see a 
menu. From here you can change which drive the program 
is checking. Free will only check floppy drives, not hard 

drive*.

[The Amiga Computing CoverDisk is 
■tsigned to be as simple to use as 
possible. Follow these instructions 
land you'll be up and running in no 


i readers may have difficulties 
r*q our CaverDitk, so we have 
- ud*rd this page to help you out. 

‘ - ow we explain how to copy 
■e* from one disk to another, how 
in copy the entire CoverDisk and 
I w to de archive programs, none 


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 software 
collection. 



How to make a backup 


To copy the entire CoverDisk, load up your Workbench 
t •. either dick once on ihe CoverDisk icon and 
- ■ Duplicate, or select Copy Irom the Workbench 
men u or open CLI/Shell and type: 

DCSKCDfT FRDF bfO: TO &FG ; 

iVhen prompted, pot your CoverDisk (the source disk) in 
c d be ready to replace it with your blank disk [the 
■ align disk), Follow the Amiga's on-screen prompts 
tfitrl ihe disk copy is completed. Now put the original 
in a sate place and use your backup. 


m 



Copying individual files 


* , night at some point want to copy a single program 
from a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or 

I r*en your hard drive. 

To do this you'll need the COPY ■command. As most 
( : - f rOisk programs an? stashed away in their awn direc- 
tor«, the quickest way to copy a program is to copy the 
I e directory at once. Use the command: 

COPT {di re story} TO {ntudisD ILL 

ere \ directory} is the foil pathname of the directory 

* u wish to copy r and (newdisk} ls the name of the disk 
and directory into which it will be copied, 

for example, if you wanted to copy a utility called 
FRED from CoverDisk 27 f s Utilities drawer to a directory 
j ed FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: 

’ ECU EtDISlZ? i U T ILITI E Ki FIE D Tfl HDHKBEHiHl .3/IHtD ML 



So if you have copied a program from the CoverDisk 
to your Work disk or hard dnve make sure you also copy 
any other fries the program requires, re fonts, libraries, 
device drivers and Commands. 


De-archiving 

Occasionally we have so many programs to fit onto the 
CoverDisk that we have lu archive them. Archiving is 
where we take the entire contents of a disk and com- 
press them into one life which is much smaller, giving 
us space to fit mare 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 dearchrve it onto. 

Say we have archived a program called FRED. You 
simply double t ick on FRED'S icon, and will be asked if 
you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to, Type 
or “n" accordingly. 

Your computer will 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 simply reboot 
your machine with the disk which contains the 
dearchived program on tt 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. 







L 


Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory 
i n and drag it across to the new disk's window. This 
has the advantage of creating a new directory for you 
and copying the icon as well. 

Once you have moved a particular program to where 
u require it you could experience some problems run- 
ng the program. This is sometimes caused by the pro- 
gram not being able to find files which it needs to run. 

A good example is the text files on the CoverDisk, 
These have been crunched using Po we if acker, so when 
:i u try to copy them to another disk and then try to read 
them you can't unless you have also copied the 
P werpacker library Into your UBS drawer. 



Workbench 3 

If you have a Workbench 3 machine., don't 
worry - most if not all of Ihe programs on 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.

I t fs one of those ironies of life that, after years of 
printing articles on Che possible social effects of 
games software, the computer press should see the 
embryonic spark of mainstream interest in the subject turn 
into a bush fire of hypocritical hysteria and tabloid 
hyperbole. 

Though offset by some well balanced television cover- 
age, the main impact of press interest has come through 
the tabloids, an impact which has seen distortion of the 
truth and the instant creation of myth and superstition. 

So fast has the video game's image been transformed 
from one of a harmless form of entertainment an to one of 
a social plague that parents and Lhose who make their liv- 
ing from the industry have been left con teed and 
bewildered. 

Now, with the danger of every sort of regulation from 
certification to censorship looming on the horizon, there 
has never been a better time to examine the issues 
involved and attempt to discern whatever grains of truth 
there may be in the mountain of media mendacity. 

Time-consuming 

Computer games have been a growing part of our 
leisure culture for almost 15 years and, from the appear- 
ance of the first Space Invaders machines in high street 
arcades to the blest Amiga or Sega chart topper, they 
have gradually become one of the most popular and time- 
consuming childrens 1 hobbies of all. Children,, however, 
aren't the only section of society to have embraced com- 
puter game technology. 

Since the advancement, of graphics, sound, and afford- 
able processing power made semi-realistic simulations 
possible, organisations across the globe have used com- 
puters to train everyone from bus drivers to airline pilots 
using what are really just highly developed versions of the 
flight sims and other games we find on our home micros. 

"Games" of this kind, though hardly comparable lo 
those which are presently causing concern, save millions 


As tabloid hysteria 
threatens to turn the video 
games industry into a 
parental bogeyman, 
Stevie Kennedy goes 
behind the hype in search 
of the truth about our 
childrens' fastest growing 
pastime 

of pounds in training costs every year. 

In many other ways, we have become a computer and 
games-oriented society. School children learn otherwise 
boring subjects using a growing array of computer pro- 
grams and associated tods, town planning students play 
games oF Sim City, and even the police now benefit from 
CD-ROM: technology to train officers in not and crowd 
control procedures. 

In addition, role-playing and games outside the com- 
puter sphere have for long been a valuable tool in am s 
such as psychoanalysis and personnel training, areas in 
which no-one would suggest that games were necessarily 
a bad thing. 

Remember the scare in the early 80s over paper and 
pencil RPGs such as Dungeons and Dragons? 
Scaremongers then were ready to print articles which vir- 
tually labelled D & D players as Devil worshippers, and 
portrayed the RPG craze as a sinister underworld of fan- 


What the law says 


Though many would have us believe that computer 
games are entirely outside the law, they are in fact 
governed by several Acts ot Parliament, most notable 
among which are the Video Recordings Act, the 
Telecommunications Act (both 1984) and the 
Obscene Publications Act of 1986, 

Between them, these statutes cover just about every 
aspect of the leisure software field, including games, 
PD and shareware, and bulletin boards. 

However, this does not mean that loopholes don't 
exist. Under the terms of the Video Recordings Act, all 
video games are exempt from classification (the sys- 
tem of tagging them as PG, 15, 18 and so on) unless 
they contain acts of gross sex or violence such as the 
mutilation of humans or animats, rapt, and other 


offensive material found in the sort of video nasties the 
Act was introduced to legislate against,. 

This content is way beyond that of any legitimate 
commercial computer game ever released, and so classi- 
fication has never occurred except in circumstances 
where the publishers voluntarily waived their exemption 
as a marketing ploy. 

Games released a few years ago based on Jack the 
Ripper and other gory characters are to this day the only 
18 certificate computer titles in Britain. 

A worrying point to note concerning these games, 
however, is that though given 18 certificates at the time 
they would look positively Lame compared to some of 
today's chart toppers. Does this mean we might soon see 
a rash of adult-only computer games? 1 asked fames

work for idle hands. A certain amount of antagonism 
toward video garner has therefore always existed. 

Over the past five years, this situation has changed 
somewhat due to the phenomenal sales of computers 
such as the Amiga, and latterly the runaway success of 
Sc-qa and Nintendo n captivating younger games players. 

Computers ark! computer games have become a con- 
sumer commodity rarher than a minority technically-ori- 
ented hobby, and <is such haye seen their way into 
millions more homes to the extent that the latest census 
showed that a hom* without a computer of some soft was 
the exception rather than the rule. 

For many beleaguered parents, the presence of a 
device which would keep little Johnny happily blasting 
away at a TV screen in the safety (and relative silence) of 
his own bedroom rather than getting up to God knows

te vet the games have since become just another

the point is that leisure and leisure activities have been

j . lives, and this is a development which cuts light

ct mputer games, which neither serve to keep one physi-

Does this mean that games are safe for a while? "That

what down the focal arcade or shopping precinct was a 
blessing rather lhan a curse, but it now appears that the 
sheer success of the console games boom is likely to see 
the industry hoisted by its own petard. 

Increasingly, sophisticated and successful hard selling 
advertisements coupled with the growing popularity of 
the games have dragged Sonic and company into the 
limelight where all the snipers can readily draw a bead, 
Media interest started last year with the first national 
press coverage of the dangers of pornographic software, 
an issue which you might remember covered by Am/go 
Computing a year earlier, and continued with the hype 
over the release of Sonic the Hedgehog 2. What really 
started the ball rolling, however, and gave us our first 
taste of tabloid coverage, was the epilepsy scare. 

Premature fink 

Taking the singular tragedy of a young boy who had 
di?ed as a result of having a fit while playing a console 
game, and the understandable concern such an incident 
provokes, Fleet Street decided that, despite the evidence, 
computer games were killers. 

It subsequently became clear that games cannot cause 
epilepsy, though when played on TVs they can in rare cir- 
cumstances bring on a fit in enisling epilepsy sufferers. This 
effect, however, rs identical to that of glittering sunlight, 
ordinary TV, disco lights, and quickly passing road mark- 
ings, and is in no way exclusive to computers. 

The quite unnecessary sense of danger which initial 
reports must have caused parents to feel should have been 
a warning to anyone who wished to draw a premature link 


between video games and other social 
but on February 16 this year a breath- 
lessly tasteless and insensitive article by 
The Sfor left open the blatant infer- 
ence that games are "creating vio- 
lent kids* and that there was a link 
between violent games and child 
rapists. 

Interwoven between two short 
reports on children who had com- 
mitted sexual offences and over- 
shadowed by photographs from 
the story of murdered tootle tod- 
dler famie Bulger, The Star's Michael 
Hellicar covered a story first broken 
toy a World In Action documentary the 
previous evening. 

This programme carried out a very lim- 
ited pilot research of its own into the possi- 
ble links between violent games and 
aggression in children and concluded that there 
was enough cause for concern to make further 
research necessary. 

Only 148 children were involved in the pilot tests and 
the program's makers made no attempt to offer their Find- 
ings as conclusive proof of anything, but this was enough 
for The Star to make the link and to print the story along- 
side two disturbing reports about juvenile sr-xuai offences 
which had no connection to computers whatsoever, 

The implication was obviously that video games were in 
some way to blame, a suggestion which prompted the 
European Leisure Software Publishers' Association (ELSPA) 


/ It subsquently 
became clear 
that games cannot 
cause epilepsy y 


to register a complaint with the Press Complaints 
Commission, 

When consulted by Amiga Computing the psychologist 
quoted by the article. Professor Cary Cooper, confirmed 
that the test results - which seemed to show that a higher 
proportion of the children who regularly played video 
games were aggressive - were conclusive only of the need 
for further research into an area which has so far remained 
unexplored. 

When asked about the possible interpretations, Dr 
Cooper said: "This could just show that the kids who are 
aggressive in the first place are more likely to pfay violent

games rather lhan that the games made them aggressive _ 

Such ambiguity in combination with press inaccurac J 
carries the danger that the industry will retreat into t* 
faager, thus inviting the legislators to force a more flexi 
response. I asked ELPSA's Roger Bennett what the gair-; 
industry intended to do about the scare. 

"We treat this matter very seriously and ate taking siea 
towards voluntary selhregutation", he toPd me. These site 
include the drafting of a code of practice for all EL 5 P 
members (the organisation does not represent every ga 
company) similar to that used by the Video Standar 
Council, and the distribution to schools, retailers and El 
press of a Video Games Users" Charter setting out sensit 
steps to avoid eye damage, over-playing of games, and 


on.

dards of decency or

to be putting our house in order and the Home Office Lei I 
me they would welcome our code of practice." said Roger, 
Putting one's house in order, however, is an activity in 
which some areas of the industry seem very reluctant to 
indulge. 

Despite the fact that press and police interest in porno- 
graphic software either sold by PD libraries or distributed 
on bulletin boards intensified throughout 1 992, the indus- 
try failed to ad. until the first convictions were won by 
Manchester's Obscene Publications Squad, 

Since then, bulletin boards and PD libraries up and 
down the country have become remarkably "clean'' 11 , and 
the ready availability of everything From soft porn to be*- 
tiainy and worse has become a thing of the past 


Self regulation 


The problem was, of course, restricted in the first place 
to PD libraries and some bulletin hoards, but the hurried 
burst of self regulation we've seen since last summer serves 
to highlight how well a voluntary code would work if only 
those who paid it lip service were endowed with a suffi- 
ciently urgent sense of the danger of outside interference. 

Interest on the part of the tabloids may, ironically, turn 
out to be for the good if by putting the fear ol God (and 
Parliament) into the games industry it forces the Focus 
away from pure profit, long enough for concerted action to 
take place. 

A code of practice would be a first step, but the code 
presently being formulated by ELS PA is based directly on 
that used by the video industry, an industry more tightly 
governed by laws and not cushioned by exemption from 
classification 

For the games companies to be able to show a clean 
pair of hards to the legislators they must set out a code to 
regulate the content of new games so that the Charter 



ELSPA claims to be working on 
the benefit of parent 
can make solid 
promises about 
what little |ohnny 
will be filling his 
spare time with. 

If the most 
important peo- 
ple in all this, the 
parents who 
spend their hard- 
earned cash to 
assuage the materialistic 
little beasts who are today's 



children, find their fears are not 
calmed by industry action, they 
may well turn to their MPs 
instead. 

Its image tarnished by scan- 
dals, beset by those who think 
new laws are the answer to every 
problem, and sitting on whal is a 
real problem despite the hype, 
the video games industry must 
show that it can take a positive, 
collective, and responsible atti- 
tude to its products, an attitude 
which goes beyond the normal 
profit motive. 

After all, can soul searching 
really be such a painful exercise if P 
as most would claim, the industry 
has nothing to fee! guilty about? 

Possibly the greatest threat, in 
terms of its ability to bring about 
government action, comes From 
the concern being demonstrated 
by teachers. This group of professionals work closely with 
children day after day and, subsequently, their views nor- 
mally carry weight in Westminster. 

More specifically, the 4 0,0-00 strong Professional 
Association of Teachers^ which worked with Granada 
Television in the making of the oiiginal World in Action 


What the 
politicians say 

"Video games are already covered by 
the law and we don't see the need at 
this point for further legislation. We 
are, however, willing to review the sit- 
uation if necessary/ 

Nome Office spokesman 

"We would be happy to see the for- 
mation of a watchdog body and 
would welcome further research/ 

Tony Shadow Nome Secretory

information ate a good thing, but to attempt to "make 
ents aware of the pot-entral danger" as PAT puts it P is to 
forward a point of view rather than open up the debate. 

However, as PAT's Deputy General Secretary Jackie Mil 
told me: "As a professional body with a responsibility 
children, we have a duly to act, even if there is a d i 
that the press will sensationalise the issue " 

When asked if she thought computer games were 
only culprits., she said: "This is not the only cause for o 
tern, There are many desensitising influences on child! 
and a great deal of advertising pressure on them and tl 
parent/. 

So isn't there a danger that video games are being mi 
into a fall guy by media coverage? 

"How the media covers such an important an 
shouldn't have a bearing on how we look at the probk 
and I've been surprised when talking to teachers and 
enls till over the country thaL no-one denies there ts 
problem/ 

What, then, is PAT's solution to the problem? 

"We see classification as the answer. You can't exj 
people to be their own watchdogs. We will be pressing 
action at the highest level in the Home Office, and nt 
that we've decided to act we intend to carry on until 
see a result." 


Pornography 


documentary, has nailed its colours to the mast and 
demanded that a senes oF radical steps be taken. 

Wonyingly for the software Industry, PAT has a reputa- 
lion as a vociferous and effective lobbying organisation, so 
would they be happy with ELSPA's proposed moves? 

PAT'S original statement called For four initiatives, 
demanding that the government tarry out research into 
the effects of video games or children, set up an indepen- 
dent body to monitor the content of the games, "curb and 
monitor" advertising, and mount a publicity campaign to 
warn parents of the dangers. 

Now, some might think it strange that r although the 
first demand accepts that a lack of research makes conclu- 
sions difficult, the following Lhree call for strict and definite 
action. 

Surely the "curbing" or otherwise of advertising is 
already a matter for the Advertising Standards Authority? 
And isn't the BftFC in a position to monitor game content? 
Publicity campaigns to supply the public with relevant 


Since Amiga Campufmg last covered the subject 
pornographic software, a combination of press interest ar 
police action have served !o clean up what was threatens 
to become a blot on the whole industry. 

this time last year, hard core pornography was readi 
available from a number of PD libraries, and disks con tar 
ing the most explicit digitised snuff video animations ar 
one in this office had ever seen were on sate to adults ai 
children alike. 

However, despite the vagueness of the obscenity la> 
and the difficulty often encountered by the police ol cat 
vincing a jury that material rs obscene, arrests were 
stocks confiscated and convictions obtained. 

The result is that a problem, the seriousness of whk 
most industry Figures had failed to appreciate, was nip| 
in the bud and Lite pom merchants either forced out of 
computer business or underground. 

If, using existing. Saws and a responsible response fi 
the industry, such a positive result can be reached, there 
no reason to believe LFial the same cannot be achieve 
today.

Power Scan Colour 



AlfaScan Plus 

Caste in er r s ottering is capable of scanning at 400dpi and up lo 256 greyscales which 
makes for much more detailed and clearer images. AlphaSca-n plugs into the parallel port 
so it can be used on any Amiga, It also has a parallel pass-through enabling both scanner 
and printer to be used at the same time B 

Because older Amigas can only display 16 greyscales, the AlphaS can Plus uses dithering 
to produce the effect of more colours on screen than there really are. However, an AC A 



chipset machine will display the lull 256 
greyscales with ease. 

The excellent software allows afl 
the usual editing features, and also allows 
you to import and export different 
graphic formats so that an image can be 
scanned in and then exported to a PC or 
Apple Mac. 

One thing that really impressed 
me was the accompanying Merged soft- 
ware which facilitates scanning an A4 or 
larger piece of paper in two sections and 
then splicing them together, This is 
exceedingly hard to do if you don't have 
the proper software. 

The greyscale images produced 
are some of the best I have seen out of a 
budget priced model. Coupled with good 
software and a well built unit this has to 
be one of the best quality greyscale pack- 
ages around. 

Alpha Scan prices start bom £99 



This hand scanner can be used on all 
machines in the Amiga range excepL l he 
A6QG and the A12GG. 51 is capable of 
2D0dpi resolution in 4,096 colours in 1 2- 
bit colour. With it comes quite compre^ 
hensive software giving total control over 
the manipulation of images. 

When you remove the Power £ofour 
scanner frgm the box the first thing you 
notice is how well made it feels, an 
impression backed up by the excellent 
software and manual. 

We reviewed the A500 model which 
plugs into a small interface which goes 
into the expansion port on the left side of 
the computer, Different interfaces are 
supplied by Power for the same price. 

Scanning an image is quite easy 
although it can be quite slow on the 
A5G0, and the software keeps you 
informed at all times as to what is hap- 
penmg. The first operation is to set how 


large a scan is required is by typing in 
figures in millimetres. 

The software then indicates 
how much memory is required and 


for unit plus scan and save software to £1 1 9.95 for the scanner and Touchup and Merge- 
software - the package used lo produce the images illustrating this article. 

Optical Character Recognition software available for this scanner can recognise text, si 
a page of text can be converted to Ascii format and loaded into any wordprotessor. 

1 his scanner performed well and produced some really good results, although the sol 
ware tended to crash when we tried to touch up pictures scanned on a 1 Mb machine. 








Scanners 



gfi n available. The scan; size set l^l 
an scan and away you go. A red 
on the unit helps you keep going 
aor^r- the image aL the correct speed, as 


if you move too fast the light begins 
to blink. 

The scanning speed was not too criti- 
cal, although this cannot be said about 
the greyscale version, which calls lor 
much slower operation, The image 
scanned in,, you wait a couple of minutes 
or so while the Amiga renders the image 
into HAM and displays it on screen. 

That done, you can make any changes 
Lo the image you want. The software 
allows you to scale, crop, flip and adjust 
the palette of your image via easy-to-use 
pull-down menus. This can call for latge 
amounts of memory - we worked on an 
A5QO Plus with 2Mb chip and 2Mb fast 
RAM and still had some memory 
problems. 

£239 gets you probably the best bud- 
get colour scanner currently available 
with friendly software and a well buili 
scanner unit. 


/ To scan a full-colour A4 
® image at 200 percent 
zoom you would need well 
over 500Mb of RAM! 




Sharp's 200dpi 18-bit model differs 
from most as it looks like a square bo* 
with no buttons, rollers or anything 
else apart from a cable leading from it. 

in operation you place the picture 
to be scanned do a flat surface and 
position the fX over it, looking 
through a glass panel to position it 
correctly. 

The scanner has to make three 
passes over the picture to produce the 
final colour picture, although you can 
mate a greyscale preview - displayed 
in the top left-hand comer of the 
screen - in order to make any neces- 
sary adjustments, 

This is the only scanner apart from 
the Epson GT to give such a preview 


option, and it certainly comes in handy 
as you can waste quite a lot of lime 
scanning things in only to find out you 
have missed out part of the image. 
Images can be rendered in any reso- 
lution required and the usual rotate, flip 
and other features are available. 

The ]X1 00 gives really good images, 
far better than any hand scanner, but 
there again is nearly twice the price. If 
you want professional results the JXlOO 
is certainly worth serious consideration. 

One other extremely good point 
about the JX10Q is the fact that there 
are no external moving parts Nte rollers 
or flaps, which means it is quite robust. 

The machine and software cost £399 
from Silica Systems.

Hints and tips 


scan someone's face from a picture but 


This flatbed scanner is capable of operat- 
ing at an impressive 600dpi with foil 24- 
bit colour capability (16.7 million colours). 
It is operated much like a photocopier, as 
you have to lift up the ffap on the top of 
the machine to place your picture on the 
scanner glass. 

Owning a GTS 500 will prove expen . 
sive. We are talking mega bucks here, and 
not only because of the unit's price, for 
you will also need a driver and Pots and 
lots of memory for your Amiga. 

We used the GT on an A400Q with a 
total of 6Mb of RAM and still managed to 
run out of memory just dealing with the 



Epian'f t¥ A m±pan'ncy iianntr ftt at linn 


F40 in the example picture. If you tried 
scanning a fufl colour M image at 600dpi 
with 2GQ per cent zoom you would need 
well over 500Mb of RAM! The F4Q was 
scanned at 320 dpi and still managed to 
gobble up 7.5 Mb of memory. 

OnJy two software packages are avail- 
able. One is the Epson driver, a stand- 
alone program. The other is a loader 
specifically designed to be used from 
within AO Pro 2 fr&m A5DC. This add^oo 
aliows much better control. You can also 
fake advantage of the many features 
ADPro has to offer. 

The cost of af! this truly professional 
equipment, whh scanner,, software and 
extra memory thrown in is well o^er the 
£1,000 mark. The GT also has a big 
brother, the GTS0OQ, which can scan at 
up to SGOdpi. 

The major advantage the Epson GT 
range enjoys over all other scanners fs its 
ability - through a hardware add-on - to 
scan transparencies. To add this feature 
wii'l set you back £565 on top of the cost 
of the scanner which is £799, 

Software to use the CT from ADPro 
costs £1 1 0 f while the Epson software costs 
£129. We used 1 the ADPro software for this 
review and found it easy to use and giving 
excellent results, 

5o if you want the best, and have a 
bank balance to match, contact HB 
Marketing. 


Whenever scanning pictures or text, try 
to make sure that the paper you are 
scanning from is as flat and crease-free 
as possible, If the picture is on £ not flat 
then when you try to scan the image 
you will see small lines where the light 
from the scanner is deflected incorrectly. 

Also when using hand scanners try 
not to let the scanner suddenly ferk, as 
again you will see little lines appear run- 
ning across your final image, 

If you try scanning a small photo- 
graphic picture the scanner can catch an 
the edges of the picture so It's worth 
using La pc to sti ck the picture Lo the sur* 
face of you desk or table. 

ff you want to scan say an A4 piece of 
paper and your scanner is only half the 
width of the paper, you can scan on?- 
hail of the paper first and s^ve it then 
scan the second half, but scan sILghtfy 
over the haff you have already scanned 
and then save the scan again. You can 
then load the two images into an art 
package like DPaint and splice both the 
halves together again. If you want to 


you don't have a lot of memory avail- 
able then try to only scan the minimum 
amount of the picture you require, as 
this can save a considerable amount of 
memory, 

No matter what krnd of scanner you 
use make sure the scanning head or 
glass is always kept dean as even the 
smallest speak of din can show up 
when scanning at hrgh resolutions. 

If you do have to dean the scanning 
sudacc then use a soft cloth with no 
■cleaning agents, as these can damage 
your scanning head beyond repair quitf 
easily, 

AJways experiment with the software 
you get with your scanner as making 
small adjustments to settings can make 
a big difference in the quality of your 
final images, 

ft's also a good idea to see if the soft- 
ware included with the scanner can 
save out in any other format other than 
IFF, as then you can export files to other 
machines.

When using some colour scanners a faster processor will 
come in handy but is not essential, Also some scans when 
saved can be well over 1Mb in sl/e so ,1 hard drive would be 
a good iidvarltag^.

The verdict 

If I had to pick the scanner I was most 
impressed wfth then it would obviously 
be the Epson, but rot everybody can 
flttofd that kind of money (me included). 
The Power unit is probably the best 
colour scanner for the home user to con- 
sider as it's (airly cheap and gives good 
results without too much effort. 

in the greyscale department the 
AlphaSean 256 gave good results and the 
software was well laid out and easy to use . 

The fX1(K> was also good if you want it 
for semi serious use, but I consider it pos- 
sibly a brt too highly priced for most 
home users.

M r. programs are more easily 
written if the various tasks that 
they have to perform can be 
feral#* down and coded as separate, 
code blocks. 

amplest way of creating an isolated 
in Basic is to define a subroo- 
in 1 s ^ a piece of code that starts with a 
jw *-..j finishes with a Return statement, 
m easiest way to explain the ideas is to 
ifeK an example. 

. pose you were writing a stopwatch 
iqp'sm that was to count a user-specified 
v ber of seconds and display a second 
: moving around a clockfac? making a 
H*e<p* ooise every time it moved. 

ould define a variable called seconds 
to l d tile number of elapsed seconds, one 
Ad position to hold the position of the 
1 = nd hand, another called g_count to 
In ■ j ’be number ol seconds to be counted, 
jnj one called g.exiljag used to indicate 
the program should terminate. With 
ry elapsed second the program would 
* -i to do these things.., 

* Undraw the current second handl 
section 

• Make a beep sound 
• alojttate the new position of the second 

bjod 

• ‘ time is complete then set an exit flag 
■ sfi able 

• Draw the new second hand position 

’ -ese tasks, all related to the updating of a 
econd hand, are a typical example of 
pre a subroutine might be written and in 
■ s case some of the above jobs are quite 
I- asy to code. 

To start with Hisoft Basic contains a 
sound statement and a beep none can be 
made just by using the command. 

SOUND 540,2 

Similarly, updating the seconds variable 
would just mean adding one to it like this. 

5tc4nfis*se«iirsdrtl 

How do we relate the number of elapsed 
•seconds to the position of the second hand? 
If time intervals equal to, or longer than, 
one minute are going to he allowed then it 
is necessary to remember that atter 60 sec- 
onds have elapsed the position ot the sec- 
ond hand will be the same as the starting 
point (1 2 o'clock). 

Sasic's Mod function can be used to get 
the position of the second hand after any 
number of seconds. 

cd 5 i M«n=sE[afidr HCb bO 

Mow, if the above Ideas are collected

whose outer second hand position at any 


Simple Basic subroutines, such as the one 
we are currently designing, can be exe- 
cuted by using a Cosub statement but for 
our present purposes we’ll use a condi- 
tional form that Forces the subroutine to be 
executed at one second intervals, namely 


given time is given by the co-ordinate {x T y), 
With flasic we can draw the second hand 
using this scut of statement..,

hand using the same routine. This mates it 
easy to write a PispkayHand sub-program 
which can then be used to complete the 
UpdateHand code outlined earlier.

| J ve put a completed example program on 
this month's CoverOisk so that you can see 
the above subroutine and sub-program in 
action.

Subprograms 

Hisoft Basic also provides a new style ol 
subroutine, called a sub-program, that 
allows parameters (arguments) to be 
passed to a routine. 

Hisoft Basic variable parameters are, by 
default, passed by reference, but by plat- 
ing Var in front of any variable name the 
calling mechanism changes and the sub- 
prog ram works with a true copy of the 
parameter and the original variable cannot 
be changed from within the sub-program. 

Let's suppose our stopwatch program 
will use a circular clockface whose centre is 
the point (X. ORIGIN, Y_ORlGIN) and 


This display hand task is a good candidate 
for writing as a sub-program. In fact things 
actually work out quite well because by 
choosing a complement drawing mode we 
can both draw and undraw the second 


(Sy the way - don't worry too much if 
i me of the areas seem confusing. Next 
onth I'll fill in the remaining details with 
,me discussions on loops and array 


ri. - 3 . t-v I c> C I 




Keep up with the commands 


Command: COLOR 

iyntdx: COLOR [foreground_eoiour] [, 
tftkgmundjxslourt L draw jnodej 
’urpflie: Sets colour and drawing mode 
iharacteristic^ Two useful modes are 0 
;the (AMI mode where foreground pen is 
jsed) r and 2 [Lhe draw once to write and 
aqain to remove Complement rrmde).. 


control passes- to the speeded routine al 
the appropriate time (eg if an error is 
detected or if the user selects a menu 
item). Timer events use a slightly different 
syntax in that the time between events can 
be specified - see this month's code tor an 
example. 

When a variable name is used Bask calls 


the X F th value in a list and so the 
statement; 

DR l ftkiin SU&Zf SUB3, SOB* 

would, if X had a value of 2 in the show 
example, result in subroutine SUQ2 being 
called 


Sub-programs 


Command: LINE 

Syntax: UNE{x, y1)-(x2, y2) 

Purpose: Allows a line lo be drawn 
between (wo points whose co-ordinates 
are (xl ,y 1 )and (* 2 ,yZ), 


In their simplest form sub-program dell 
nitions look like this... 

SUB nut (com deUtiim! piMHter L:r<! 


STATIC - used to introduce local vari- 
ables (hat are initialised when the pro- 
gram starts running, but which are not 
re-initialised between successive sub- 


Command: MOD 

Syntax; enumber or number variables 

MOD <toase> 

Purpose: Returns the remainder left after a 
number has been divided by some base 
value as many times as is possible. 

Command; ON COSUB 

Syntax: ON <X> GOSUB Eroutinel> l, 
<routine 2 J >,.„ <roUftwN,>] 

Purpose: With this statement <X> may be 
either an integer variable name, or a 
Menu, Error, Mouse, Break, Collision or 
Timer keyword. When a keyword is used 


Variable declarations 

<real sub-program tode> 

END sue 

Variables within a sub-program may 
be declared as being one of three 
types: 

SHARED - this allows a sub-program to 
access a value from the main program 
without having it passed as a parameter. 


program calls. 

LOCAL - local variables which are ini- 
tialised to zero each time the sub-pro- 
gFam is executed. 

Sub-program variable parameters can, 
and in most cases should, be passed by 
value to protect the original variable 
from being inadvertently altered. 

This can be done using the VAL key- 1 
word as illustrated In this month's 
example program.

A s the title suggests, this pro- 
gram h firmly aimed at the pro 
user/ enthusiast who requires 
broadcast-quality results and isn't put off 
by the prospect of having to invest heavily 
in the software and power hardware to 
attain it. 

As you've probably spotted from the 
examples, Pixel Pro Isn't simply an extru- 
sion tool, - although admittedly this Is a 
large part of the package. In addition to 
this particular function, format conversion 
is where the program really starts to earn 
its keep. 

Before the inevitable stroll: through the 
software, a brief pause on the^rogran\'s 
conversion options is a must. In totol ?he 
package will handle 14 different ID model 
formats. 

The beauty of this multi -form at design 
is that as well as loading, the package will 
also save in any one of the 14 formats. 
This means that a mountain of objects are 
ready and waiting to be either down- 
loaded or bought from the huge pool 
already out there., 

Thanks to some smart programming 
the software will auto-sense the format of 
the file to be loaded - In this particular 
article the majority of the models are for- 
mer Sculpt creations mixed in with the 
occasional example from Lightwave. 

Original colours 

Courtesy of the program's Config 
options it's possible to retain not only the 
structure of the original but also its colour 
information - of course this has to be part 
of the model structure rather than a brush 
map. 

A good example is the RoboCop II 
model which clearly shows the original 
colours defined within sculpt. 

Although extremely smart when it 
comes to loading models it must be said 
that glitches can occur when saving out 
into another formal. In this particular 
example all the images used in the piece 
have been re-rendered in imagine. 

In the case of Imagine the success rate 
for objects was around 65 to 70 per cent. 
Although this doesn't sound too good it 
must be Stressed that the program never 
fails to convert the object. 

However it does make mistakes which 
results in holes where they shouldn't be 
and more often solid areas where holes 
are meant to occur... 

As a result the job of conversion is often 


Dimensional 

doodles 


3D or not 3D? That is the question. 
Paul Austin takes a close look at the 
Amiga's ultimate modelling utility, 
Pixel 3D Professional 



Turn sCitTpr CPHJflans in futJ flight within 

only hglf-way done when the process is 
complete as editing is necessary to clean 
up the object in the ray tracer or modeller 
of your choice. 

However even with this additional edit- 
ing, Pixel Pro is the only effective, if rather 
hit-and-miss, method of converting 
between formats. 

In order to simplify the process of pro- 
ducing models, several filtering options 
allow you to reduce the number of poly- 
gons and faces used to create the model. 



This can occur prior to saving via the 
polygon reduction option or alternatively 
as the object is saved - thankfully this is 
optional. Although polygon reduction has 
its uses it also has its risks - usually in the 
form of missing polygons on the saved 
model which may need to be replaced. 

OK 1 think that covens the loading, sav- 
ing and conversion of models, now it's 
time to look at the generation of originals 
from bitmapped beginnings. 

Importation can take several forms, the 
most basic being a mono import which 
loads any bitmap ignoring its colour infor- 
mation. As a result Pixel Pro will simply 
show the outline of the 2D graphic as if 
treated as a simple black and white 
image. 

The next and most often used variant 
is to import the bitmap complete with its 
colour information. The only restriction 
on importation is that they are neither 24- 
bit or HAM images. 

Once loaded in you can simply extrude 
the object to a desired depth or specify 
that the colours be extruded according to 
their relative brightness. This relative 
brightness option is worked out from the 
brightest colour in the range. If for exam- 


ple you specify a figure of 1 00 units, that 
will become the measure of the brightest 
colour which all the others are judge 
against. 

It however you require more accuracy 
than a relative extrusion can provide the 
package also offers the option to specify 
each colour in the bitmap individually - a 
rather painstaking process, hut if you 
need real accuracy it's just about worth 
the effort 

The final choice is to use the grid fea- 
ture which operates in a similar manner to 
the colour option,, but rather than you 
setting the scale the software does the job 
for you by analysing the incoming image 
as it is loaded and then automatically 
extruding it for you. 

This "sit back and let the software do 
the work" approach can be taken to the 
ultimate with the assistance of the pro- 
gram's excellent config option which 
allows you to specify all the techniques 
you wish to apply to a bitmap prior to its 
importation. 

For example, the extrusion depth can 
be set, the level of smoothing, the bevel 
to be applied and whether or not the 
object is to be spun in the process. 

Specifying effects 

Although it’s easy to apply all of the 
above after the image is brought in, I 
often found that specifying the effects in 
the config prior to the great event often 
produced better results than applying 
exactly the same effects latter on. 

Tor example if you try to smooth the 
edges of a resident model after it has 
been extruded the end result is invariably 
disastrous. As a result, smoothing is 
always best applied on the flat import 
prior to any other effect being applied. 

Although a methodical approach will 
mean generally equal results, it's often all 
too easy to get three nr four steps down 
the line and then make the fatal mistake. 

It's true that the package does olfer a 
very effective undo, but nevertheless 
errors can creep in and then lt J s back to 
square one. 

However, with the config approach 
you can apply all your guesswork in one 
go and see the results instantly. IF things 
aren't perfect a slight tinker with the con- 
fig presets and you can reload the hicmap 
for another attempt. 

In the above passage a few new ele- 
ments have sneaked in to the equation, 
such as bevel r smooth and spin. Take a

Into 4 imoafh ID model 


Smoothing 


Once a bitmap is loaded, the [aggies inherent are all to apparent, and as a result,, 
smoothing is often essential. This is particularly the case with when using the program's 
option to impart text direct from a ftandard Amiga font. 

Even when you take the advice of the manual and import text at 1 00 points plus, the 
liggies are often still too much to bear. As a consequence, smoothing is the only option 
and if applied carefully, the improvement can be dramatic. 

Like all the effect requesters, the smoothing option is fit to burst wrLh special user 
definable options guaranteed to keep the average anorak happy for months while the 
basic controls are often more than enough to get the fob done. 

These consist of preset small, medium and! large degrees of effect which can be 
adjusted for better accuracy by percentage and then applied to the object either as a 
whole or alternatively to just to a selected pert of the object. 


Extruding 


Unlike smoothing, extrusion is pretty basic with just three simple options including 
regular, colour and list. The first allows a default extrusion to a set depth for the entire 
object while the second follows the relative deptFvto-coloui ratio mentioned earlier. 
Finally comes the rather curiously titled List option which conceals another element 

mentioned above, namely the option to set the extrusion depth for each colour individ- 
ual ly, 


look at the box out for a further explana- 
tion of Pixel Pro's additional power 
features. 

As you may have spotted, the software 
not only offers a perspective mode but 
also full 2D viewing from either the front, 
side or top of the object. 

2D viewing 

This option only really comes into its 
own when point-editing imported 
bitmaps prior to extrusion. A series of 
options allow all the usual cutting, inser- 
tion and movement ol points on a singu- 
lar or group basis allowing even smoother 
end results when finally extruded and like 
all the program's environment controls 
the mouse is all you'll need. 

To help visualise the object, a whole 
series of preview modes await including, 
solid, shaded, wireframe and colour each 
of which can be combined with one or 
more of the others to provide the best 
results. 

The package also offers extensive 
mouse or Icon-con trolled movement and 
zoom in both 2D and 3D with various 
icons allowing you to lock axes as 
required. 

Finally, a default button allows you to 
define and save as many corifigi. rations as 
you require ready to be imported for simi- 
lar tasks in future, while the final icon sup- 
plies basic on-line help when required. 

After my first few adventures into the 
package I was slowly becoming convinced 
that it hated me and to be honest the 
feeling was mutual, However like Imagine, 
Pixel Pro suffers a classic case of crap man- 
ual syndrome. 

Behind the facade of badly explained 
techno-jargon and a total omission of 
tutorial lurks a package that gets better 
and better the more you experiment, 

If you're serious and don't mind taking 
time to experiment. Pixel 3D Professional 
is the only viable answer to several thorny 
3D problems. If you're working commer- 



A famous Ift ■tpBc fare from fioboOsp II 
rourte if of fommt nomm/ani 


dally with the Amiga it's the kind of pack- 
age you shouldn't be without even 
though it can be unbelievably slow, eats 
RAM like mad and needs at least an 020 


to operate effectively. ,, 




In addition to the big three, X/V offsets allow you to extrude at a specified angle 
while yet another option allows you to specify the colour for the front, back and sides 
faces of the object when stretched into 3D. 

Arid just like its predecessor, options await to apply the effect to the entire image or 
simply a part. 



Ot all Uie available effects, bevel has to be the most impressive, as it allows you to 
soften the edge of an extruded object either by a specified degree or alternative by 
using what the software calls a router bit to add a predefined curve to the front and/or 
rear of the object. 

Ihe aforementioned router bit, although sounding complex, is really just a basic 
curve simulating a cross-section of the edge to be created. These routers can be gener- 
ated and saved to disk as required. 

If a router bit isn't required, a regular bevel can be employed to produce a softened 
edge, Although much more basic it can nevertheless be very effective taking the form 
of a straight chamfer of the reading and trailing edge of the object. As usual both router 
and regular bev^s can be applied either to a part or the whole image. 


Spin 


Due to the rather self explanatory title I doubt this option needs much introduction but 
although it sounds simple in fact Spin holds a few surprises by ottering the kind of 
extrusion options only usuaFly available within packages which employ spline paths as a 
modelling tool, 

As you'd expect, the requester boasts variable degree settings,, offsets, destination 
lengths and colour options in a similar vein to the extrusion requester, and yes you've 
guessed it r the effect can be applied to just part or the whole.

Why then do you actively promote piracy 
by allowing pirates (thieves) to advertise 
for free irsyour magazine? 

These adverts are blatant in stating 
that they wish to swap ''cracked 1 ' soft- 
ware. I wrote off to a couple of the peo- 
ple who wanted contacts and on both 
occasions l was asked to send my list of 
latest "stuff" to them so that they could 
see if there was anything I wanted off 
them. 

if t had supplied enough blank disks 1 
couid have had hundred* of pounds 
worth of software! What I want to know 
is, are you going to stop these advertise- 
ments or are you going to aJi&w these 
thieves to pass on their stolen data? 

A Concerned Amiga user 

Out Omitted advertisements, to which you 
refer, are netted every month and my ille- 
gal advertisements are removed. We also 
remove commercial gtfs posing os free 
reader ads and any which might cause 
offence. The problem is in deciding which 
are illegal and which are genuine pleas for 


dated as a reader ser wee from which we 
make only enough money Jo cover our 
casts, and fo withdraw [he service or 
severely hamper it because of a few poten- 
tially bad apples would be to allow pirates 
to attack every reader who sends us an ad. 

Having said this , your concerns are per- 
fectly valid, and we will be happy to check 
up on any dodgy entries you come across. 

Remember that we have the names and 
addresses of all who send aoWjtriemenfs 
us f so if a reader is offered pirated software, 
they should try fo get if in writing -perhaps 
in the form o f a list - and we can then pass 
this on to PAST for immediate prosecution. 
Piracy - together well crack it ( geddit ?}.

With the Amiga being as flexible, power- 
ful, and easy to use as it is, I am encoui- 
aging my son's junior school to invest in a

from using the Amiga? I would also like to

Mania Wyatt, Ashford 

if there arc any educational networks cat 
there or just any teachers who'd like to pass 
on their Amiga experiences, here is Martin's 
address : 

Old Stores, Holhfield Common 
Ashford TN26 1 HB 

Networking the Amigo is not as simple a 
job os it would be if you were using,, s ay. □ 
PC or o Mac. There are few Amigo network- 
ing systems around at the moment, but you 
could try talking fo Graham Heggie at 
Hydra Systems (0203 4?W J), suppliers of 
the only UK Amiga networking system I 
know of. 

Word swap 

I purchased my first Amiga a couple of 
months ago for purely leisure use, Since 
then I have become impressed with the 
speed With which my AT 200 handles 


I bought my AT 200 back in November and apart from the usual 
teething troubles when some games software failed to work I 
am very pleased with my machine. It is a definitely 3 step up 
from my old A5Q0, which is becoming dated. 

With the increasing popularity of the A600 and [tie growing 
market for peripherals I thought it was a necessity to move onto 
newer and better things. ** 

I could not have made a better move. All my important busi- 
ness packages such as Wordworth, DPaint IV, and Amos still 
wort, and they work much better. 

By this I mean I don't spend my time waiting for programs to 
take ages on basic functions and I can continue to wardprocess 
without being interrupted. My art work is faster and I can't wait 
to get my hands on the new DPaint IV ACA. 

In a recent letters page you said you wanted to see some 
support for an additional pass-through slot on the A67Q for fur- 
ther expansion. I would fike to give my support for such a slot. 
A Ceiman PCMCIA card expansion is already available for the 
PC machines, but it does have a huge price tag, I already have a 



2 Mb ftAM card in my PCMCIA slot 
and if I plug in a CO-ROM drive I 
wiil most probably lose the use of the 2Mb. Please Commodore, 
will you bring out an A67Q with a PCMCIA pass-through slot? 

Chris Handley, Truro 

Vdur inter must surely represent the tip of the icebefg os for os 
PCMCIA womtes ga Haw many A60O and A 1 200 users out there 
are warned about the possibility that their ftAM expansion! will be 
redundant when other Commodore devices ore released? 

Such doubts con only damage sole s of PCMCIA cards os users 
hold off from investing £100 or more in a star which might become 
redundant or which might be incapable af accessing more than one 
cord or device. Commodore have lolled so fat to make much of 
PCMCIA other lhan hot air, so let's hope they can improve some- 
what an their track record. 

At the moment they're not say mg much about the A670, never 
mind releasing tech specs, jo we ll just have to wait and see - os

graphics compared to the computers I 
use at work (PCs by any chance? - Ed) 
and I would like to use my Amiga for seri- 
ous uses. 

In particular I would like to work on 
scientific documents at home that I have 
been writing using Word 5 on Apple 
Macs. 

Could you please tell me if there is a 
document processor for the Amiga which 
tan import such documents or, failing 
that, if there is a Mac emulator Salable. 

If compatible document formats do 
not exist across different formats, I think 
it would be a good idea since it would 
make life a lot easier and remove the 
need for having various computers each 
with expensive monitors and hard drives. 

R j Levett, Cambridge 

The inlernational document format you 
refer to exists to a certain extent in the 
shape of Ascii text To gel this son of text 
out of Word 5, just iije Save As and choose 
the Text Only format. 

Ascit is fine for unformatted documents 
but as jf doesn't carry ony format informa- 
ban regarding bold text , underline, and jo 
on, It j's less than ideal If you wish to trans- 
fer a more or less finished document. 

Luckily, Wordworth v2 tor the Amigo witf 
load a wide variety of documents , including 
Microsoft Word (though onty the MS-DOS 
version) and Rich Text format (RTF), which 
Word 5 refers to os interchange Format , 

Using the latter, it is possible to transfer 
o document from Word $ to Wordworth v2 
white retaining all character formatting 
commands. 

To do so r users of the A 1200 will have 
to take advantage of the CrosiDos utility 
huiit into Workbench 3,0. Use this to for- 
mat o PC disk for [he Merc to read jq 
read K disks formatted on the Mac, as this 
is the only way sfro/j of buyfog the ram- 
meraol Mac- 2 -Do s package to make an

Wish list 


J have a mixed bag for you, but first 
something for the powers that be at 
Commodore. Who in this day and age in 
their right mind refeases a computer 



> 

without a hard drive option? \'m talking 
about the A1200 of course. 

It r s a joke! Surely it's not difficult to 
source the hard drives, and though you 
might want to keep costs down on a 
machine like this, don't you realise that 
people want a hard drive and will pay for 
one? Why doesn't AC print a question- 
naire for Amiga fans to fill in giving their 
views on the specs for a decent Amiga? 

The Amiga is an established computer 
that can only get better, but when are 
Commodore going to become customer- 
friendly by accepting some feed back from 
users? Like, tor instance, I would like a 
through-port on my A670 when it 
appears. 

Now it's ACs turn, I think you turn out 
a good varied interest magazine, but how 
about in the comm* column a couple of 
months devoted to things like robotic 
control reading sensors, communication 
by short wave radio, receiving weather 
satellite signals and so on? There are 
other things to communicate with other 
than BBSs, you know! 

Jon Sf-ewart, 5*ft«rtand 

If Commodore are reading this page, i hope 
they realise just how barking mod their 
orrrissroa of an AI2QQHQ was /rom the 
launch last yeor end how baffled the baying 
public are by E he derisJort. 

As for a questionnaire? we receive 
eitough feedback from reader* nol to have 
to 05* them precise questions about their 


favourite Amiga, However, if you'd oil like to 
send your wish Ssfs to me, Vd be glad to 
keep track of the ESP perfect machine. 

We haven't printed any hardware pro- 
ject* for a while become we've found that 
they are fairly unpopular? but if a hidden 
ca&e of the soldering iron brigade makes 
itself Jfoown among our readership we moy 
bring them back . Thu, t might add r rs highly 
unlikely? but it's a pcsjiiwfify. 

Kickstart cure 

Could you please tell me rf there is a pro- 
gram that will make the old A50Q games 
work on the AS 00 Plus and AG007 1 have 
already got the Degrader program but 
that Just takes the memory down to 51 2k. 

1 5 there a program that will change the 
Kickstart to 1.3 from 2.04? 

1 read in your issue SB news section 
that there was such a prog ram. Could you 
tell me where to get hold of it? 

floss WametC Hornchurch 

The program Eo wfaJch you ore referring rs 
RefoKidt hi a PD software ROW switcher 
which has been EouEed wr some pa a rim os 
the be-all and end-aJf of AI2Q0 canrpat/hi. 1 - 
fty prohfems. However, fhe method has a 
few drawbockSr 

First of all A120Q compatibility problems 
are more offer? frhan not caused by the 
68020 or the AGA chip set father than Erie 
Kickstart chip portkuiarfy where fames are 
concerned , and the options available 


through [he boot menu are [he best cure 
for these problems. 

Secondly, RetoKick, like all software 
Kickstart switchers, requires that the user 
already has a copy of the tfri^stPri ROM on 
disk. This software is Commodore's copy- 
right and has only ever been released on 
disk to developers and the original AJ000 
owners. 

Some companies are distributing this 
and other Kickstart switchers with oil new 
A? 200s, and rumours are that some are 
actuary suppJ>inc? the tfjcJfcsfari flOM on 
disk as well. 

If Commodore Jrnow about Ibis and are 
turning a blind eye, they haven't EoW us, so 
my advice to ur?y user in doubt would he to 
enquire about the legal position before 
accepting what might be Miaf software, 

Hard cash 

I'm writing in response to the article in 
your March issue where the A! 200 is 
compared to 1BM-PC clones. The article 
made interesting reading, especially 
your views about Ami gas not having a 
hard drive as standard. 

The question I would ask is why are 
hard drives for the A500 Plus so expen- 
sive? The average price of a 42Mb drive 
with 2Mb RAM is £350 to £400, yet last 
year Commodore cut the price of the 
A600 by £10 Oj which priced them at 
£399 with 40Mb hard drive. 

Naw they've brought out the AJ2Q0 
which sells for about £550 with 40Mb 
hard drive. The point I am making is that 
I would like to buy a hard drive for my 
A 500, but when you consider the price 
and the advantages of Ihe A! 200 it 
makes yau wonder which items are 
priced correctly, 

P Cole? Braintree 

Mast of the products to which you refer 
are hampered in any price war fay the fact 
that they are external devices and because 
the A500 Plus, unlike the A600 and 
Al 200 , doesn t have a hand drive interface 
built in*

Right to reply 


On reading Ihe letter entitled "Air crash" in our March issue, 
Thcilion Software's UK representative, Tony King, has exercised his 
right to reply with the fallowing; 

1 was very concerned to hear of a customer who had returned his 
product to Thalton Germany and who had not yet received a 
reply. While you wen? quite correct in printing the UK contact 
number and my name, 1 felt the tone ol your reply left something 
to be desired. Thalion, being i German company, operates a quite 
adequate customer services depart ment based in Germany. 

It should be remembered that Airbus A 320 is essentially an 
imported product and has been on release for ewer a year. With a 
new agreement in place, all future releases of Airbus will have UK 
registration cards and points of contact. 

Finally, remember the following important fact, As of February 


1 , 1 993., A32Q Airbus on all formats across Europe had sold in 
excess of 147,000 units, and while I am not offering excuses for 
what happened to Mr Cooper or Mr Rose, that is an awful fat of 
registration cards. 

There are updates and mailshots in preparation, including new 
products and so on, and as these become available, customers 
who have returned their registration cards will be informed. 

Tony King, Thollon 

On a final note, Ezra Surf would like to apologise to Thalron for 
the unnecessarily sarcastic tone of the reply to the letter in our . 
March issue. 

I'd also like to point out that this shows how concern from 
customers, if voiced rather than bottled up, can prompt the 
responsible software companies to act.

less expensive business. 

On the ASOO series r however? the user 
must pay for the drive unit, the interface, 
the external casing, and often a power 
supply as well. Any price differences 
between the fwa upgrade patf?s are only 
wfaaf one would expect* 

Selling the A500 Plus to buy an A1200 
with hard drive is a drastic step which will 
intiolly prove more expensive? but in the 
long run yau mufd find that to keep up 
with Amiga technology yaw will have ra 
trade up at some point 

Gently does it 

Am \ the only Amiga owner who 
doesn't (urn into a raving lunatic every 
time an opinion is expressed on the 
future of the Amiga or the PC threat? 

I read with interest your comments in 
the Title Fight article about how most of 
us Indulge in "My computer Is better 
than your computer* arguments, and 1 
agree whole heartedly. 

I regularly go down to a local com- 
puter cSub {no - we don't pirate games} 
where all sorts of users can be found,, 
some of whom have Ami gas, some have 
PCs, some even have Archimedes. 

They are mostly older,, mature peo- 
ple, but as soon as someone hints that 
the Amiga might be better than the PC 
or the Archimedes, a ridiculous argu- 
ment breaks out which is made all the 
worse if it carries on in the pub after our 
dub meet. 

Grown men squabbling like children 
over the relative merits of the Amiga's 
custom chips or the fabled Falcon's DSP 
make for a fairly sad backdrop to any 
evening, especially in a room where the 
television in the corner is showing pic- 
tures of bombed-out Sarajevo, images 
of profound concern which rank below 
the difference between SCSI and IDE in 
importance to these poor people, Can't 
they just get a life or something?

band that performs beautifully, whether 
it’s Mozart or Motown. And with the 
Extras Disks for SuperJAM!, you can

If you’re into MIDI but don 't need 
full power, checkout Pipes, music 

software made simple. BarS&PipES

fresh musical ideas, or the Pro Studio 
Kit for complete control of your MIDI 
studio. The Internal Sounds Kit elimi- 
nates the need for MIDI altogether.

your computer! To round it off, we pre- 
sent Rules for Tools, documentation 
and C source code for writing your

G ra p hie s 




W ith the advent of the ACA 
chip sel, most of us won- 
dered what would become 
of the Amiga's third-party 24 -bit market. 
The high resolution and 262 r ftQ 0 colour* 
of HamE seemed good enough for many 
of the static images previously only possi^ 
hie using hill-blown 24-bit cards ranging 
in price from £600 to over £2 r 000 r Why 
then should the Amiga enthusiast or low 
end video producer spend more than the 
£199 price of an A 1200? 

Only budget 24 -bit boards can hope to 
continue to appeal to the mass market, 
but the quandary here is that most of 
these boards are so stripped dawn as to 
be useless for video work, leaving them as 
high qua illy but decidedly non-standard 
display devices. Peripherals of this kind will 
still appeal to those who want or need a 
24-bit display tor artwork only, but most 
users Will take one look at the problems of 
software supply and give such devices a 
body swerve. 

Any new 24-bit board therefore has a 
hurdle to climb, For it to he viable, it must 
offer either professional capabilities or 
enough low cost power and compatibility 
to entice users into buying it in preference 
to the AG A upgrade path. Retina, from 
VI ah manufacturers Mac roSy stem, takes 
Ihe latter approach Id bring Amiga users a 
true 24-bit board from as little as £350. 

Flicker fixer 

Remarkably, and without stretching 
reality too far, the board can also claim io 
be a flicker fixer and graphics accelerator 
Into the bargain. This is in no small way 
due to some very clever programming 
and a suite of Workbench utilities supplied 
with the hardware. 

The Mina fits internally in any A2Q0O, 
3000, or 4000 Zo rro slot and is a fairly 
basic looking piece of kit, comprising of a 
couple of custom chips and a bank of 
VRAM in the shape of 70ns ZIP chips. For 
output it depends solely on a VCA-style 




15 -pin D-plug of the type used by Innu- 
merable monitors, but which offers only 
RGB signals. For use with most video 
equipment, the board's output will there- 
fore have to be passed through an 
encoder costing a further £1 50 or so. 

Restrictions in this area 
are the most Common 
problem with cheaper 
boards, and Retina is no 
exception, Serious video 
enthusiasts would therefore 
be advised either to look 
elsewhere or include the 
costs of a PAL or y/C 
encoder in their calcula- 
tion s, especially as Rerina 
has no on-board genlock or 
frameg rabbet 

Coming From the same 
stable as VLab, -Retina Sup- 
ports grabbing from within 
the bundled parnt package, 
VD Paint 2.6, but the inter- 
nal version of VLab casts 
not far short of £300. In 
combination, the two 
would make a Formidable 
video graphics Loot, Ehough

Hitting the target 

Rrtmj is ihe first budget board to make use of a technique known as retargetable graph- 
ics, a buzzword which will eventually see a revolution m Amiga displays, Pul simply, at 
means that instead of having to go straight to the Amiga's graphics chips, any display 
device will be able to use a go-between In the shape of a software library. 

Software which has been well designed will automatically look for such display- 
libraries, and ihe screen display from, say, a OTP package, will automatically be retar- 
geted dl whatever board is plugged into that particular machine, Suppliers of new 
devices such as Retina will therefore have only to write a library for their card for the 
Amiga and my OS-legal software to use it as the standard display. Retargetable graphics 
are due to be incorporated into Kickstart 4.0 and should encourage more manufacturers 
to make their own display cards. 


emulation. By running the ReLinaEmy pro- 
gram, either from Workbench or during 
start-up through the WB Startup drawer, 
users can have the card intercept all stan- 
dard Workbench display functions so that 
Workbench and most programs which 
work with ihe system will display on 
Reims's screen, When this happens, the 
user is effectively using Retina as a flicker 
fixer, 

A second program, ReiinaScreenMode, 

> 


total cost of the system would soar 
towards the £800 mark for a fully config- 
ured sebup. 

So where does Retina find its low cost 
market ? Unlike most 24-bit cards. Retina 
attempts to act as a general purpose dis- 
play enhancer raLher fhan a dedicated 
framebuffer. To this end, several utility 
programs supplied with ihe board pro- 
vide, among other things. Workbench

otters the user a choice of dozens o-t popu- 
lar VGA and multisync monitors including 
most of the NEC, 5ony, and Philips ranges 
and, if a specific monitor is not listed, to 
add his or her own model's specifications 
fcg the list. Once this Important job is com- 
plete, running the ReisnaEmu program will 
send the correct ’signal tor the monitor 
attached to the card's VGA port. 

II the user has or% one monitor it is an 
easy \ob to save the RetinaTmu settings 
then just pop the program in WB Startup 
for the machine to use the card's display 
on bool up thereafter, The advantage of 
this mode of operation is that the user has 
a rock solid flicker fixed display lor most 
productivity packages and, in general, any 
package which multitasks with 
Workbench, In addition, the card's quick 
32-bit VRAM and fast graphics library 
lends a speed boost to many packages, 
especially DFaint IV in HAM mode and 
Workbench in 16 colours, but there is a 
downside. 

Retina can be made to output at 
IS, 5kHz and even has a Commodore

1 064 monitor setting, but this sort of out- 
put is only possible after Workbench has 
loaded and the emulation program has 
kicked in, Until this time, the board has no 
output, and in any case defaults to a 

higher frequerlty VGA 
output. The result is 
that if using only one 
monitor it must, be a 
VGA or better, so that 
most popular Amiga 
games which auto- 
boot rather than load 
from Workbench will 
not be displayed. 

By far the best 
Retina setup is a dual 
monitor situation 
where the Amiga 
screen is displayed on 
the user's standard

Amiga monitor - 1084 or I960 - and the 
Retina display sent to anything from a 
cheap VGA to a 21 in multisync depending 
on your budget, in this situation it is possi- 
ble to retain compatibility with all existing 
software while displaying 24-bit images In 
the best passible resolution. 

The two disk supplied with the card 
include, as well as the RetinaEmu and 
screen mode programs, a display utility, 
loaders and savers for ADRro, and VDPaint 
2.6, the latest version of a package which 
first appeared on the VD2Q0Q graphics 
card. Additionally, there is a Harlequin 
library' to enable the board to roughly 
emulate the much more expensive 
Harlequin card, and an Afiexx script for 
Black Belt's Image Mr package to enable 
this powerful image manipulation pro- 
gram to use a 24-bit Retina screen., 

ADRro has become such a de facto 


standard for Amiga graphics processing 
that it would have been surprising had 
MacroSystem tailed to supply a saver, but 
this does not detract from the fact that 
they have and that it does the job. Once 
installed, the AD Pm user can select the 
saver from the usual list within the pro- 
gram and any image saved is then re- 
routed to- the 24-bit display. 

Display control 

A choice of raw image or rendered 
data is available, along with B-bit grey, 
but there is none of the sophisticated 
control over the display as that offered 
by, lor example, the Harlequin saver. 
Users cannot choose screen offsets or 
whether to centre an image in the 
screen, thus robbing the saver of much of 
its usefulness. Of ah the software supplied 
with Retina, this is the routine I would 
most urge the programmers to 
reconsider. 

A particular headache with the AD Pro 
saver is that because it flips display to the 
Retina buffer, it isn't possible to hick back 
to ADPro using a mouse dkk. One must 
instead use the lett-Amiga-IM route, and 
this is a real pain when viewing a large 
number of images. 

The ImageMr ARexx script is much

Bundled paint package is a bonus 


Retina's bundled 24-bit paint package, VDPaint 2 A is an 
evolution of a program which first appeared on the 
VP2000 display card a few years ago, and were it not for 
the appearance of DCTV and IV24 its mere presence as a 
freebie would have been good enough. However, the 
sheer quality of DCTV's bundled paint program and the 
relatively poor MacroPaint on the IV24 have set out a 
standard (one high, the other low) by which we may 
judge. 

Though not a competitor for the still unequalled 
TVPaint, VDPainL stands up well as a paint package in its 
own right, and does most of what is required of it. 
Images In either 24-bit IFF (3LBM or DEEP), or any of the 
AGA picture formats can be loaded, and the package will 
save images in JPEG to save on hard drive space. This can 
be a life-saver lor the user with a passion for 24-bit but a 
hard drive with limited capacity. 

Other formats supported indude VDPaint'* own for- 
mat, PPM, and separated RGB hfes. A nice touch i* the 
minipic appended to all files saved from the paint pack- 
age. This is similar to the previews offered by OpalPaint in 
that it appears in the load requester window whenever 
the user re- loads a VDPaint file and is very handy when 
scanning a drawer full of hies for a particular image. 

In action, all painting features are accessed from a sin- 
gle floating Loolbox which can be easily popped up on 
screen with a click of the right mouse button but whose 



Minor font h upJ fo ffffrffPPff Imafci m paiithfc 

design is simple and comprehensive enough to take the 
user into a productive groove after the first few hours of 
use. 

One sensible feature is the way the program controls 
painting effect!* Rather than utilise Focal control of effects 
like gradient Fll and Forcing the user to select them when 
a tool b chosen for use, VDPaint provides a global setting. 
A bank of icons at the bottom of the toolbox otter a vari- 
ety of paint application techniques including gradients, 
rub-through, smoke, and smear, but those once selected 


stay on and work with all tools until another effect is 
chosen. 

It is most often the case that when painting, the user is 
continually switching Irom solid paint application to per- 
haps an airbrush, then text, back to painting, but this 
time with the smoke effect, then maybe a bit of smear- 
ing. When a single dick at the beginning of the process 
can turn on an effect for all future operations, increased 
usability is the result. 

The tools themselves work 
very well, and on the most 
part with a Fair degree ol 
speed, despite the latt that 
this is a bundled freebie. 

Speed degradation occurs 
under certain circumstanteSj 
especially when brushes are 
used as fills or when large 
gradient fills are used, but 
otherwise everything zips 
along nicely on accelerated 
Amigas, 

On 68Q0G equipped 
machines, speed of opera- 
tion can become painfully 
slow, but at least the pack- 
age makes a good attempt

Genlock problems 

Rttlflri's only citflput Is a Tj pin VGA port, which means It Is virtually impossible to 
hirfc ihc board's oulput for use wilh a genlock. Normal Amiga display modes 
oolpuE from the buili in 2] pin port on every Amiga use ihe Amiga's unique 
video Friendly signal lo make gen Inc king both easy and cheap. 

Tfie reason for this is Ihe sync pulse generated by Amiga 1 . lo which any genlock 
can synchronise itself Id produce rock steady images on tape. Wilhoul such a solid 
reference signal, inking two video signals from different sources h Impossible, 
iind it is Ibis sort of output which makes the more expensive cards such as 
Harlequin hy far |he better buy I nr the video professional or enthtnlasl 
Other popular cards, such as GpaIVKfon, either have genlocks which are 
designed specially lo lil lei Ihe card, or provide 1 heir own syru pulse and a range 
ol video outputs such as Y/C or composite. In this respect, NcHna Is tar behind, 


more useful, though of course only so 
long as the user has access to this pro- 
gram. Simply by selecting the ARexx 
script as the redraw screen script in 
ImageMr's display preferences, the pro- 
gram's output is redirected to the 24-bit 
buffer whenever a redraw is ordered, lo 


effect, this means that any of the pack- 
age's advanced Image processing tools 
can be applied to a graphic and the true 
results seen immediately rather than as a 
rough HAM preview. 

Probably the only drawback for 
Image Mr users is that the program flips 



IWflfar i h 
iapabte of 
producing 
HffWoir 
pretfritalian 
graphic i 


back into standard display when any 
screen interaction js called for, such as 
when a brush is cut out or an area, 
marked for a specific effect. As the image 
loaded is more than likely a 24-bit image 
(why else would one need Retina?} the 
screen representation of the graphic is, to 
say the least,, difficult to work on. This 
aside, I would certainly prefer refuse 
ImageMr with Retina than without. 

Slideshows 

Macro System's supplied screen display 
program. Retin a Display, is a fairly basic 
utility, but it does have the ability to dis- 
play a number of pictures m sequence 
with user-definable delay and speed 
between each for very simple slideshows. 
Other than this, it is restricted to display- 
ing images on the Retina 24 -bit screen, 
though it makes use of AppFcon tech- 
niques to enable Ihe user to simply drag 
an IFF file's icon into the RetinaDi splay 
window rather than use CLi 

The utility purports to provide double- 
buffered animation on the Retina by run- 
ning a series of images from the hard 
drive then buffering them in RAM for a 
faster animation the second time round, 
but every picture I've tried so far has been 
refected by the program as unsuitable for 
buffering. F am therefore unable to judge 
how well animation would work on this 
otherwise fast card, though by the nature 
□f Farge 24- bit files it is Unlikely to be any- 
thing other than slow, despite any 
amount of buffering. 

Re tinaDis play's reluctance to buffer a 
series of images is probably a simple bug 
- the review card was Fully populated to 
4Mb VRAM - but giver the fact that 
quarter screen 24-bit files will animate at 
only about the speed of a slideshow, to 
hold one's breath in anticipation of 


smooth full screen 24 -bit animation at 
long last would be to invite suffocation. 
Retina is Fast, but not that fast. 

Retina is a splendid 24 -bit option for 
the budding artist who needs 24-bit qual- 
ity and either isn't interested in multime- 
dia or has access Lo another machine 
equipped with a more video-friendly dis- 
play board. 

For the enthusiast looking to move up a 
notch and who isn't concerned about the 
restrictions Retina places on the use of 
standard auto- booting Amiga software, 
this has to be the cheapest combination of 
video accelerator (oF sorts), 2 4- bit card, 
and flicker fixer, but for ihe video or multi- 
media user Retina will hold 
little appeal.

at running on 16-brt platforms. This, as one would 
expect, is a bit of a problem for a paint program which is 
operating in 24-bit, so MacraSystem supply both a 63000 
and a 680x0 version of VDPaint, the fowlier version opti- 
mised Lo use standard CPU instructions as quickly 
as possible. 

Drawing fools are, as usual, not designed to stun and 
amaze and wouldn't look out of place in QPainL, but they 
function as expected and furnish the user with enough 
power For painting purposes. Painting effects, on the 
other hand, are about as exotic and varied as in any other 

package. 

The most simple effect is the 
much vaunted gradient, an 
effect which, though as com- 
mon as the flu, is still the most 
usefuF For general 1 purpose back- 
grounds and so on. In keeping 
with tradition,, a simple 
requester enables the setting of 
gradients from any corner or 
side of the screen, and up to 
lour colours (one in each comer) 
can be used in the blend. 

My one grouch concerning 
these blends was that to set one 
up required the use of three 
requesters, first a trip to the 
colour swatch to choose some 
colours tor the range, then off to 


the blend requester Lo choose which ol the ten or so 
blends to use, then finally a visit to the gradient requester 
to set up which corner or side of the screen the blend was 
to progress from. Alter all this* one gradient combination 
is available for use. Not a particularly smooth operation. 

Text handling is much better, and by clicking on the 
style icon the user can access all Amiga fonts, including 
Agfa outline fonts such as CGTrmes and those supplied in 
the Agfa, starter pack reviewed last month. These are the 
ideal typefaces for use in 24 -bit images as they are almost 
jaggie4ree on screen and require little in the way of anti- 
aliasing to create a smooth finish. However, even when 



ffu b-thrfHtQh fOW br a ifnrrtfpgfp efftctlYt technique 


using bitmap fonts, the style requester's variable anti- 
aliasing control makes life a lot easier. 

Other stars in the paint line up include the mask func- 
tion, rub-through, and VLab support. Masking is one of 
the most important techniques of image creation on any 
machine, and as such it must be properly implemented. 
Luckily, VP Paint has a fulsome mask function which 
allows masks defined as hue, saturation or value of the 
selected cofour. AH of these can be set from zero to 255, 
making very gradual masks tor blending a picture info a 
background and so on. 

Smiling planet 

Rub-through^ the technique of rubbing away part of 
one buffer to reveal the picture held in the background 
buffer is available on Retinas with 2Mb of VRAM or more 
and, when used in conjunction with masks and the air- 
brush, makes some very useful elfects possible. The smil- 
ing plane! Earth is a good example of how combining 
one image and another in this way makes for a com- 
pletely different effect. 

Finally, direct support for the VLab 24-bit video digi- 
tiser usmg an Identical monitor window to that used by 
V Lab's own software gives Retina a much needed video 
link to the outside world. The images captured by VLab 
are stored directly in the card's VRAM for immediate 
touefi-up or saving to disk, and the benefits of being able 
to immediately view a captured video frame in full 24-bit 
cannot be understated.

Update 



AG A gathers 

new d isciples 


Wordworth 2 becomes the latest major 
package to find a seat on the AGA 
bandwagon, Final Copy fixes its font 
problems, and OpalVision software gets 

a boost. Read on... 


T he initial release- of WoncJworth v2 
contained few disappointments 
for reviewers, but it did have two 
major weaknesses. 

AGA file formats, including HamB and 
256-coloLir IfFs, could be loaded lor inclu- 
sion in documents, but they were not 
displayed on screen in the glorious colour 
available through Final Copy FL 

This meant that though Wordworth v2 
was far and away the more powerful fn 
terms of its wordprocessing features, it 
had a distinct disadvantage when compil- 
ing for the A 1 200/4000 market 
In addition, the package's handing of 
all graphics was sfow and in need of 
improvement. Dig it a announced at the 
time that an upgrade to enable screen 
display ol AGA graphics was on the way, 
and though a couple of months later [han 
at first promised, it finally arrived this 
month. 

Too many supposedly ACA-frrendh 
programs continue to offer simple choices 
between high and low resolution or “open 
on Workbench" variations rather than 


deaFing directly with custom screens in 
Super hi-res or Productivity modes. 

Wordworth v2 at last brings AGA users 
the choice of any screen mode currently 
possible through the Workbench prefer- 
ences settings, which means that those 
with high quality brgfr resolution monitors 
can word process in any resolution. 

Users choose a screen mode using a 
simple Wordworth preferences requester. 
Screen width and height are displayed 
and there is a slidEr for the user to specify 
the number of screen colours, so there 
can be no complaints about the overall 
implementation. 

Unfortunately, this cannot be said lor 
the use of the graphics themselves, 
importing large pictures is still a tortuous 
exercise resulting in long delays while 
screen pictures are built up, so there is still 
an urgent need for Digital programmers 
to improve on things as they Hand 

Wordworth may now be complete In 
terms of its AGA compatibility, but it still 
has a way to go in usability, at least where 
graphics are concerned.

OpalVision vl.7 

Australia's answer to the Video Toaster, 
promising to bring PAL users the same 
sort of power features as the NTSC-only 
NewTek unit, has been available for about 
eight, months and the hardware upgrades 
we were given a tantalising hint of at the 
board's launch are still a white away. 

However, the bundled software pack- 
age has improved steadily since it First 
appeared, and now offers several major 
?m prove men ts over vl „Q , 

Consisting in the mam of MakeAnim24 
and flayAnim2^ r these utilities offer a rare 
chance to see real-time 24 -bit animation. 

The catch, of course, is that playback 
speeds are less than smooth [frame rates 
of between 20 fps for 1 2-bii and 4 fps for 
full 24 =bit are the norm) and high resolu- 
tion animation is just not possible, but as a 
preview method for sequences which will 
eventually end up on tape the AnimMATF 
Suite is a solid addition to OpalVision, 
Improvements to Opal Paint 1 J include 
the addition of a property functioning 
Alpha channel and the inclusion of a 
Magic Wand feature. 

The Alpha channel is an extra 8 -bit data 
channel which can be added to any 24-bit 
image and used for effects such as linear 
keying, What this in effect means is that 
an image can be gradually faded in or out 
over 256 leveFs of brightness and the 


background image, be it live video or 
another graphic, will seem to fit smoothly 
;into the foreground. 

When Alpha painting mode is selected, 
the user is given a paint selection of 256 
greyscales,, with black representing 
complete transparency and white opacity. 

A transparency mask can then be 
designed so that various parts ol the 
screen are mare transparent than others 
to allow keyhole effects or r if desired, a full 
screen gradient from black to white 
enabling linear keying, the smooth transi- 
tion from graphics to five video. 

A major drawback is that these sort Df 
live video effects can only be used in 
conjunction with the OpalVision 
gen lock/ Frame grabber module which 
not yet available, but once lully equipped 
the OpalVision should be a 
useful video production tool Fl

Final Copy II fonts 

Final Copy II was a product whose almost universally smooth passage past the reviewers 
was marred by only a couple of faults, the most criticised of which was the program's 
complete reliance on its own font format. 

The resulting inability to make use of either Agfa intellifonts or Adobe Type I 
PostScript fonts restricted Final Copy PI users to the small collection of typefaces sup- 
plied with the original program. 

Since the general murmur of disapproval, however. Softwood have been hard at 
work implementing both Agfa and Postscript-compatibility and the result is a much 
more flexible package. 

In addition to the Softwood fonts supplied with the original release, FCll now has 1 6 
typefaces covering four popular fonts as used in most PostScript laser printers. 

This includes Helvetica, Schoolbook* r irres, and Courier and gives the user the abiiity 
to out pul high quality documents with better Wysiwyg than that possible with the "best 
guess" method employed when a document does not use Adobe fonts. 

As a ? uH-colour wordprocessor for the non-professional market of home users. Final 

Copy II is now a more complete product, and still beats Wordworth v2 hands down on 
graphic

A600 memory 


F have an A600 which I use 
mostly for games and wordpro- 
cessing. E am cons id Eiii ng buying 
either an external 1Mb RAM upgrade for 
the credit card slot or else a second disk 



drive. 

Which would improve most the overall 
performance of my computer? Would an 
upgrade help to cut down on the number 
of disk swaps necessary during a game as 
much as a second disk drive would? 
Finally, does the external RAM upgrade 1 
have some sort of a through port in case 1 
ever wanted to upgrade again? 

Min GaOugher f Co Tyrone 


B interesting problem, but wffb a 
simple answer, Buying an extra 
disk drive will help considerably to 
reduce disk swapping when using commerc'd 
packages but games don't always rake 
advantage at extra drives. 

When it comes down to memory this foci 
Js a worthy add-on and wit: help with most 
games and definitely improve the perfor- 
mance of commercial packages. 

There are two ways to add memory to 
your A600. One js through the PCMCIA stay 
on the sid? of the machine, but these cards 
do not have any kind of pass-through and 
ore expensive. The second way n to odd a 
memory upgrade to your trap door expan- 
sion . 

If you take into account bow much a 
PCMCIA card costs - sfroui i J 29 hr an 
extra 2Mb against a I Mb trap door expan- 
sion costing around £2S - Eherr you fl be able 
to buy the trap door expansion and a second 
disk drive for £90, which is less (hen just the 
PCMCIA card . This will give you the best of 
both worlds. 


1200 compatibility 

Recently I bought a copy of your maga- 

H zine r the first in almost... well a 
very long time. IVe recently 
taken up computing again, and I 



Sound advice from our experts, this 
month on upgrading to an A1200, 
adding a hard drive to anA5G0, 
installing Maxiplan - and much more 


plan to write software on the Amiga like l 
did on my C64 and Vic 20 (remember the 
days you could... no r had to tty to fit a 
game in just 3k of memory?). 

Currently I'm the nol-so-pfoud owner 
□f an ASOO, which I bought a long time 
ago, and never bothered to upgrade to 
newer chipsets or Kickstart versions. What 
I did buy was a second floppy drive, some 
additional memory and a Midi interface, 

5g now f think it's time to sell it, and 
purchase an A 1200 model, so I can finally 
get fid of the load disk drive, lots and lots 
of guru messages and so on. 

However, after reading about it in your 
magazine, | have some questions which I 
hope you can answer for me. Here they 
are; 

1. Can l connect my external drive to the 
Al200 r or do I have to buy a special 
A 1200 version? 

2. Same as above, but now the apparatus 


in question is a Midi interface, 

3. As I dm very interested in (and use a lot 
of ) music soft warn, I would like to know if 
Bars and Pipes Professional will run on an 
A120Q and if it will run faster. The reason I 
ask is because I've read in some test that 
because the A5GQ is slow, you can't use 
too many modules to change Midi data in 
real time. 

As the A 1200 is about five times taster 
than the A5QO, you should be able to use 
(about) five times as many modules as 
with the A5G0, Right? 

4. is there a special version of Amos 
(under development?) for the A 1200, that 
can use the new graphic modes? Or is 
Amos flexible enough so that you can use 
the new modes with the "old" version? 

5. And, speaking of Amos, does Amos sup- 
port external devices, such as a Midi inter- 
face? Do special commands exist within 


A600 printer driver poser 


I am a new owner/user of an A6QGHD and bought your 
magazine (February) issue; In the free book Mastering the 
1 that came with the magazine there is a section on 
printer driver installation page 31 p which states that when opening 
the Utilities window in the Workbench window there is an item 



called install printer. 

No matter how hard I look! can't find this program, I have stud- 
ied the manual Using the Amiga Workbench. Is there i mistake in 
Mustering The Amiga or am I doing something wrong? 

Please help with this problem as. I am slowly going out of my shell

wiif hove to copy the driver from the disk with it on and place in 
your printers drawer which is in the Devi drawer on ySur 
Workbench. 

You then have to go to prefs and select printer again. This time 
the new driver should appear in the available list of printer driven. 


Protext poser 

Q l Thank you for the excellent 
f wordprocessof Protext, with 
- the January issue of Amigo 
Computing, it really makes my amateur- 
ish efforts look very professional indeed. 

i am using an Amiga 50G Plus, 
enhanced by a "“plug in" 2Mb chip RAM 
upgrade. Despite using all the com- 
mands from Pretext s help facility and 
your very good CoverDisk article, l can- 
not get the program to save documents 
or files to my external drive. 

If I try to save from the menu, the 
massage "disk full' 1 appears on the 
monitor. 

F Davie s, Evesham 

A lt you try pressing the Esc button 
you will then enter the command 
mode - s imply type in *iqvf 
dfl .-filename" filename being the name

Amos for sending, receiving and altering 
Midi data? 


6. if you update an Amos version by 
using, for example, D-Sam, will the Amos 
compiler automatically handle the new 
commands or does the compiler need to 
be updated as well? 

7. Specs for the A12QQ state that a maths 
co-processor (6flE81/68d82) is optional. 
Can Lhis be fitted directly onto its printed 
circuit board, or does i t come as an 
extension? 

8. Are accelerator boards for the At 200 
already under development? and what 
about SCSI interfaces and CD drives? 


9. Does the A 1200 have a built-in clock 
(with battery backup)? 

Den l/Vaflerfong, Netherlands

Normally we don't cm a we r so 
many questions from one person, 
hut as these are related to such a 
new machine which a large number of our 
readers have or are going (o upgrade to m 
the near future f here 


L Most new drives sbaufd worir wftb the 
A12QQ, but n's best to ask the supplier 
before parting with your cosh as some drives 
are not compatible due to power differences 
between the aider Amigos and the 4 J2QQ, 


2. Ye s r yoar existing Midi interface will oper- 
ate quite happily on the At 200. 

3. Yes, Bars and Pipes wifi run better on

menf/orred prefer Jo run from fast memory 
which can be mumpufofed faster than chip 
RAM. 

4 . Yes and no, The new version of Amos w/'r 
mn faster on the A I 200 hat os yet A will not 
lake advantage pf i/re Al200*s new AGA 
chipset, although this may appear in the 
fete jammer. 

5. Amos does support externa! devices 
through atl of the ports, tot to program it to 
control a Midi interface will take consider - 
able knowledge of Midi devices and Signals. 

6. Nq, the compiler will flat need updating. 

7. Yes there is space on the motherboard of 
the AlZOO for a moths co-processor, hut you 
have to hove it fitted by Commodore 
through Wang. You can also get trap door 
boards to upgrade to a moths co-pro. 


8, The M&X 1200 is the only hoard to offer a 
speed increase for tber A1200 of this time, 
although several companies are planning 
much faster boards in the near future and 
there are rumour tJwt CD7V wilt be avail- 
able for the A 1200. 


A500+ hard drive 



I need a hard drive, but am con- 
fused as to their differences and 
which is most suitable for my 
use. I want to run programs like Final 
Copy and Protect, and probably a paint 
package such as DPainQ* although I don't 
use graphics very much, 

Obviously the GVP HD8 it an option, 
but what about the others? I noticed 
Evesham Micros are selling a reference 
1 DO for £229 - why is this unit so much 
cheaper than a GVP? 

The Ascom Addhard is another possi- 
ble, but it has no SCSI port. What's a S.CSI 
port and do I need one? Roctec have a 
unit at £289, is that one any good? No 
wonder I'm contused] 

Secondly all these units talk of extra 
RAM. Will I need RAM, and if so, how 
much? I appreciate you can't recommend 
a maker outright, but I really do need 
some advice as to which unit would be 
the best value, without going for the most 



expensive and getting lots of functions I 
don't need, 

Pete Southey, Chichester 

You sound as though you really 
■* w are in a pickle so we 1 // keep it s im- 
* pie, For what you need you will 
hove enough storage i pace with around 40 
to 52Mb hard drive, and your 2Mb of RAM 
should also be OK tor most tafogs Oi'Cbougb 
fitting a hard drive wifi reduce this slightly. 

The mom difference between all the 
drives on the market is whether or not [bey 
are 5C5J or IP f drives. As a rule SCSI drives 
arc quicker T hat the speed difference is not 
enough for a home user to worry about. 

Good frotures to foofc oiri for are ability 
to add extra memory and a DM 4 side 
expansion pass-through. 

A/so if you p/ay games ft's a good idea to 
see if the drive has a switch to disable it 
while playing ■, As you said, ifs hard far us to 
recommend outfight a specific made/, but 
aver the nexr few months we wftf be review- 
ing some hard drives in the Shop Window

Maxiplan hard 
drive installation 

I have just purchased a copy of 
IHJ Amiga Computing (issue 58, 
9^4 March 98). The spreadsheet pro- 
gram runs all fight from the disk, but 
when I attempt to run it when I have 


booted up the computer from another, it 
says exphdeJibrory not found , even though 
it is on both disks in the libs directory , 
Could you please inform me what to 
do, as I would like to install it to my hard 
drive. \ am unabie to contact you on the 
hotline, because 1 don't have access to a 
phone, neither am I able to purchase 
your magazine on a regular basis to find 
out the answer because of unemploy- 
ment,. 

D Bartlett, Swindon 

r Quite a few people ore hafong 
the same problem as you so we ll 
explain what you need to da. 

First copy the entire drawer colled 
Maxiptan to your hard drive , them make 
sure you have the expiodeJibrary m your 
hard drives llhs drawer, if not, copy it 
ocrusj- 

Therr you have to add the following line 
to your startup-sequence: 

assign Hllipllli; dh0:Hai ! pltfl 

Tb/s fine can be added using either Fd from 
Workbench ar arty text editor. Once you 
have added this line and re-saved your 
startup - sequence you mast then reboot 
youf machine for this command to take 
effect . 

you should now be ubfe to /oad

Those 'cheap' American Amigas 


in your magazine recently you were comparing Amiga 
price differences in Britain and Europe,, Last summer I 
was teaching kids Animation in the USA. 

1 managed to convince the camp director that buying an 
Amiga would be a good idea:. So It visited the local computer 
shop and picked up an Amiga package for less than a fifth of 'he 
cost in Britain. 

Getting swiftly to the point,, in an earlier mag you gave details 
of various changes required to a US Amiga to enable it to work 
in the UK. What changes would you need to be made lo an 
A1 200, assuming it wouldn't be used with a TV, to make it waft 
in the UK. 

Darid Thomson, Dundee 


H lf your using the A12Q0 on either a monitor or a TV 
through a scad socket you will have no trouble with the 
display , once you have s el the screen prefs from 
Workbench fa PAL As lor as power goes you fust need a British 
power supply, either an A50fl one ora A1 200 wilt do. 

Why you s/ioufo want fa do this is beyond as, os the Amiga 
A 1200 is roughly the same price in the States at the moment due to 
the failing value of the Pound against the Dollar. At the moment it 's 
hr cheaper Jo buy an AJ200 from Germany - quite unusual, as the 
A1200 is munafoclured frr SctXW^ 

tf you do buy an Amiga from Germany, some ol the keys are in 
different places. Getting round this just invokes swapping the Key 
caps and then setting the heat lo English from Workbench , 



Power Patch 

A 1 am writing with reference lo 
the letter printed in your 
March issue from John Gray, 
who was experiencing trouble with 
placing the power patch program in 
his startup sequence. 

i had the same problem with error 
104 being given when run from the 
startup sequence, on my AT 500 run- 
ning under Kickstart 2, However I 
found that it Is possible to run PP 
from ihe startup sequence by running 
it in the background using; 


or alternatively using Ihe public 
domain program called RunBack, 
Unfortunately I don t know whelher 
this will work under Kicks tart 13. 
However I see no reason why it 
shouldn't. I hope this helps Mr John 
Gray or anyone else having trouble

desperately trying to use the 
Multiview program in Workbench 
to load a picture and use it as a background 
for my Workbench 3.0 window, or any win- 
dow for that matter. 

I know this can be done as J have seen a 
picture ol it in another magazine. Also, is 
there any way of getting programs to think 
I am using fast RAM instead of chip RAM? 
Some programs refuse to work unless they 
can work in last RAM,

Software 


Paul Austin continues his voyage into the 
virtual world with an exclusive review of 
VistaPro 3.0, The question is, can it beat the 
impressive efforts of Scenery Animator2? 


A s you may have spotted, this 
month's issue is something of a 
fractal spectacular with land- 
scapes and spirals, Mandlebrots and 
clouds, alt emanating Irom what is usually 
thg arid artistic plane of pure 
mathematics. 

Thanks to the aforementioned maths, 
Vista Pro 3.0 takes the already impressive 
talents of its predecessor and expands on 
them with a whole range of added fea- 
tures which without doubt make it the 
most flexible fractal generator on the mar- 
ket- 

Bowever flexibility alone doesn't make 
VistaPro3.0 the only choice. If you're in 
the market for a fast results and a totally 
self-contained system, Scenery Animator 
2.0 certainly puts up a spirited fight. 

For existing Vista fans, the all new 3D 
interface will come as a pleasant change 
but beneath the initial front end lurks a 
collection of new screens dealing with the 
improved graphic range of the Amiga, 
additional tree rendering control and 
perhaps most interesting of all, the pro- 
gram's new feature placement options, 

It's really on the mam control panel 
where the fun starts. As you can probably 
see, the top of the screen is dominated by 
the program's orientation controls for 
both camera and target. 

Basic setup couldn't really be simpler 
with placement of both camera and tar- 
get being a matter of clicking on the map 
which instantly reads the data into the 
appropriate display with a 30 metre verti- 
cal offset for the camera.. 

Between the relative data tor both 
camera and target lurk the essentia ; axis 
control buttons which allow you to spec- 
ify whether or not a particular axis should 
be locked - a useful option as accidental 
repositioning can and does happen. 

Immediately beneath basic orientation 
come a selection of more subtle effects 



The eye tfffect of on lilr™ wide angle ieiii

including numerical bank^ heading, pitch 
and range controls, the first three of 
which are pretty self explanatory. The 
fourth defines the distance at which the 
software will ignore features within the 
scene. 

Assuming the basic pointing of the 
camera is complete, the really enthralling 
part of scene design can begin. As you'd 
expect bask feature control comes first, 
with sea level, tree line, snowline and haze 
being the first steps on the road to real- 


ism. 


Clicked in 


Like their counterparts in the orienta- 
tion section, l he necessary data can be 
input either via typing or more likely by a 
well placed mouse click which when com- 
bined with the desired feature button 
defines the relative height for the chosen 
feature. 

Below these essential elements come a 
whole host of optional features all 
activated by their own button. Depending 
on the complexity of the option the 
action will either produce a more involved 
control panel or simply operate as a tog- 
gle, The first four burtons definitely fall 
into ihe first bracket with the exception of 
the lake button which simple reports the 


A inner 17 

ewsfr 
ifrv Vhta 
tnrtd%inpe 



specified height of the new lake, draws it 
□n the affected area and then asks for 
confirmation. 

On the other side of the coin come the 
tree options which five on easily the most 
complex option screen within the pro- 
gram. As the screenshot shows, the avail- 
able options are Immense but in short 
they boil down to various levels of detail 
for the trees and grass within the scene. 

In addition its from here where you can 
define which, if not all, of the four tree 
varieties will appear, their density and 
height plus whether they’re to be ren- 
dered as 2D or 3D objects. As if that's not 
enough, texture can be applied to further 
enhance the effect. 

Although the full complement of 
options are shown in the grab, things 
aren't quite as complex lor the beginner 
as only when the Expert option is chosen 
will the detail settings for the four tree 
styles within each variety become 
available. 

Due to this style within a variety, the 
actual number of different tree "looks" 
leaps from four to 16. 

The next button - namely stereo - 
offers another unique feature allowing you 
to specify the generation of a left and 
right view of the scene which can then be 

K1 — |t ■ n.,.i- .j*. - .. i 1 Lui-e . » | IHm + i 


combined and viewed with the 3D shutter 
glasses. 

Alas this doesn't mean you can use 
red /green gel lenses as dedicated hard- 
ware is essential for viewing - a nice touch 
but probably useless for most people. 

Cloud control comes next, again pro- 
ducing a designer interface allowing the 
generation of random clouds or alterna- 
tively cloud formations derived form a 
DEM file but alas there's no anim option 
as found in Scenery Animator 2.0. 

Remaining options 

Fortunately for the majority of the 
remaining options things aren't quite as 
complex with an assortment of on/ offs 
coupled with accept effect features avail- 
able for roads, rivers, landscape smooth- 
ing/enlargement and shrinking, buildings, 
stars, cliffs, valleys, palette locking and 
horizon definition. 

As for the rest, a little mare detail might 
be handy, especially for the new place 
function. This allows you to zoom into a 
specific area and manually add grass, 
trees, buildings and roads as required. 

To further improve quality, an option 
to lock out random features can be 
employed allowing only user defined ele- 
ments to appear in the scene. And of ►

< course, what you add can also be 
removed when necessary, There's even an 
option to roughly edit the landscape itself 
with a draw option allowing basic re-scal- 
ing of the immediate terrain. 

Assuming your scene is now complete 
with designer trees, lakes, river, building, 
roads and Cod knows what else, if s time 
to make those finally quality control deci- 


sions before hitting the Render button. 

fn the final portion of the main screen 
awaits a series of icons allowing yog to 
specify just how photo -realistic - and 
thereby time consuming - you want your 
latest creation to be. 

The first step is to select the polygon 
size. In the highest setting a single poly- 
gon can be the size of an entire mountain 


side while in the smallest you achieve the 
kind of quality shown in our screen shots 
with the compromise being one of time - 
although it must be said that VistaPro3.0 
is easify on a par with Scenery 
AmmatorZ.O tor speed, especially consid- 
ering the additional detail offered. Next 
on the list comes the transition dithering 
which rather than dithering the entire 


image simply controls the lade between 
elements. The higher the figure the 
smooth the overall look. 

The texture option is in a similar vein 
but rather than smoothing it adds more 
d eta FI to l Fie polygons closest to the 
camera thereby adding additional detail 
to the image. As you progress through 
the four available settings quality 



The improved, function-filled pull-downs 


As before the package has a full complement of pull downs menus opening as ever with 
the Project menu which allows you to specify the sue of the overall landscape varying 
between small, large, huge and auto sizes. 

In praetke this simpy means that either single or combination DEM landscapes can be 
loaded allowing mnger animation sequences or even more vast panoramic stills. 

The available load options allow the import of four different types of OEM including 
giant regkan landscapes created via the Farge, huge and auto options. 

In addition you can also import clouds (whkh are in fact automatic OEM to cloud 
conversions), Cmaps (otherwise known a* colour maps) plus standard and 24-bit IFF- 
images. 

As For saving, a' I of the above await plus an option to output both RGB fries and Turbo 
Silver/ Imagine objects with the only limitation being that landscapes can only be output 
as standard or extended DEM files. 

Within the next pulf-down comes one of the most striking updates to the package in 
the form a full WB 3-compatible image control panel which when active presents all the 
existing 1 ,3 screen modes plus; the Fatest options available via WB 2 and 3, 

These Include Ham8 and 256 colours, plus the complete range of AGA productivity 
modes including super hi- res which means the program's maximum Dn-screen resolution 
will now extend right to limit of the new chipset - but only if your machine is already 
operating in the specified mode. Fo supplement the screen options the package benefits 
from a collection of automatic overscan settings for all the available screen modes, and 


like its counterpart the 24-bit buffer can also be defined to any size you require. 

As well as Amiga screens the package also has the ophon to write directly to either 
DCTV, Ham-E or the Firecracker 24-bit board. In the case of the DCTV Virtual Reality Labs 
have cured a shortfall in the previous version by finally offering both three and four-bit- 
plane output, 

Within the same pull-down some old favourites reappear in the form of the fore- 
ground and background options whkh allow the user to Import existing graphics and 
place them - not surprisingly - either in the foreground or sky area of the image, thereby 
lessening the need for additional and expensive image processing soFfware such as AD Pro. 

Next up on the pull-down trail comes the program's script options and built-in anima- 
tion control. Unfortunately standard animation within VistafTgS.O is sadly lacking in rela- 
tion to Scenery Animator 2.O., 

In fact svithout the assistance of MakePath, the program's optional anim generator, the 
best that can be managed From within the software is straight line from A to 8. 

Although animation is limited, all isn't lost concerning scripts, in fact an additional 
^manual comes as part of the package and goes into great lengths explaining the potential 
*of controlling the program entirely franrscript hies. 

In addition, scripts can be very handy for defining default setups complete with all the 
detail settings, tree densities and so on, which otherwise can really slow down the genera- 
tion process if carried out manually every time you boot-up the package or wish to re- 
define the end result of a render. With the assistance of pm-saved scripts, literally any

Is it with having? 

As mentioned way hack Vista Pro 3.0 is definitely the more flexible 
of the two fractal generators but on the other hand It isn't as 
complete a package as Scenery Animator2.0 which unlike Vista 
comes with complete anim CC/ltrol as standard. 

It s true that Virtual Reality Labs try their belt to address the 
problem by adding 30 OEMs as opposed to just lour with Scenery 
Animator?. 0 plus a complete MakePath fly through script for 
each. 

Basically it all bolts down to what your requirements are. If your 
needs are for the occasional backdrop or anim for video or 
multimedia, Scenery Animator is both easy to setup and contains 
all you'll need for high quality if rather basic onims and statics. 

If on the other hand youVe looking for a more artistic platform 
which can do more than simply generate backdrops or basic 
anitns, VistaPro3.Q Is the only choice - but be warned, setting 
It up is definitely more complex and re-renders are usually more 
frequent.

improves but again at the expense ol 
rendering speed. 

Last of this particular quartet comes 
another version of dithering but in this 
case it's of the sort found on many Amiga 
packages designed simply break up the 
uniformity of the image in an attempt at 
added realism. 

Framing your scene is the next task and 
to help the process the program otters a 
variety of lens controls Starting with twin 
wide and zoom settings plus a user 
definable option responsible tor the ftshi 
eye effect seen in one of our examples. 

Yet another new feature also makes its 
appearance here in the form of a port, 
starboard and forward view point which 
as yet another example shows allows three 
images to be generated from the same 
point which can then be appended in an 
image processing package producing a 
widescreen effect. 

The penultimate option takes the farm 
of the program's internal fractal 
generation avowing you to create your 


own landscapes or OEMs as either islands 
or solid land mass by simply specifying 
which you prefer and then entering a 
seed from which the fractal is produced 
In addition the panel also otters a series 
of tour fractalising settings whkh define 
the relative roughness of the newly cre- 
ated landscape white the final stretch 


option allows an increase 
in depth of the DEM to 
be set and applied by the 
user - both of the last 
two options can be 
applied to existing DEMs 
to add additional fractal 
detail to the image. 

Lastly comes one of 
the most important 
mood-making element of 
the program, namely 
Lighting. From this you 
can either opt for a 
selection ol preset 
lighting angles of aUema-* 
Lively define your own. 

To enhance the effect, an exaggeration 
option can be applied to deepen the 
mood while a quick but 
effective shadowing button adds that final 
touch of realism to your creation.

setup can be loaded and applied instantly, a graphic example of this coming from the 
final pul! -down which otters four such scripts as toggle bie options which kids the package 
into various quality inodes. 

Alongside script control within the same pull-down comes the program’s animation 
output options which include normal anim5 H RGB, IFF24 and Vanim which is the pro- 
gram's own proprietary direcblrom-disk anim format, which although useful is limited to a 
maximum of 12 FP5- 

With lack of animation control but abundance of output options the package does 
seem a little lopsided, but in fact this variety isn't quite as peculiar as you might imagine 
as with the package comes 30 pre-designed scripts designed specifically For individual 
DEM files. 

The aforesaid scripts are obviously the work of Make Path which AC will cover along 
with Terraform in the Update column next month. 

This dependence on MakePath is the real reason tor such varied animation support and 
with that in mind it seems strange that both it and Terrafofm2.0 don't come as part of the 
Vista Pfo5-Q package. Unfortunately to get hold of this almost essential software you'll have 
to contact Virtual Reality Labs direct. 

The last remaining pull-down holds another Vista favmirite which like full AG A support 
is unique to the package. From the JmpExp pull-down comes Vista's excellent colour map 
and IFF loading and conversion tools. 

From here you tan either import or export colour maps or save maps as 2D EFFs which 
can then be edited and re-imported complete with the new features ready for re- render- 
ing in 3D. In addition, existing 2D images can be brought in and converted into DEM files 


according to colour or intensity. So for example, it's possible to digitise images such as 
real-world maps, apply the appropriate colour map, and import them ready for rendering 
as virtual reflections of their real-world counterparts. 

This above ill else makes Vista ProT.O special and a potentially invaluable artistic tool 
and with the addition of the new Turbo Silverttmage output options, its potential is 
stretched even further,

F ractals, and more often fractal gener- 
ators, tend to gel a hard lime in the 
press, primarily dye to their led ions 
operation and equally boring exponents. 

No matter how hard you try, fractals by 
nature lead to dreary conversations abouL 
chaos theory, super strings, ley lines, Pink 
Floyd, The Prisoner and all things pseudo- 
mtellectuar - invariably rounding off with a 
side-splitting recital of the parrot sketch. 

With this sort of reputation it's a tricky 
business trying to convince any normal per- 
son that fractals can be interesting and more 
importantly useful 

As you may have guessed t r m not particu- 
larly fond ot anything that maintains the fury

• •• 


Paul Austin spotlights Fractuality, a program 
that's guaranteed to send anoraks into 
ecstasy and turn artists into insomniacs 



live aspect of the palette is that you don't 


collar image of the average computer user 
and as a result I must admit to exploring 
Fractuality with a healthy degree of cynicism. 

Much to my surprise - and that of the 
equal y cynical AC staff - Fractuality is unbe- 
lievably addictive by being blissfully simple to 
operate while producing stunning results. 

Although fractal creation has a reputation 
for complexity, within Fractuality this 
couldn't be further from the truth as the 
entire procedure is controlled by simple 
mouse clicks and toggle boxes. 

Actual generation and definition of frac- 
tals is simple. To create your first image alll 
you need do is rhek cm the generate image 
buttons which instantly computes the basic 
building block of ^actuality's endless reper- 
toire, the amoeba within the primordial! 
mathemaiic soup being the good old 
Mandelbrot set. from this familiar image an 
unlimited variety awaits either via ever closer 
examination ot the Mandelbrot itself or alter- 
natively by adventures into its alter ego, 
namely the Julia sets. 

This new breed of fractal awaits through- 
out the basic Mandelbrot and by simply 


clicking on any point a completely new and 
radically different selection of images can be 
created. 

This option, to eattier zoom into the basic 
Mandelbrot or diversify mo the Julia sets, 
means infinite- variety awaits. The option to 
zoom into the fractal landscape is taken to 
its logical extreme in the form a! animations 
which can be generated between two pre- 
defined locations within the fractal of your 
choice. 

Animation is achieved by first saving an 
IFF Of Fractuaflty Pa rams file to diik then 
continuing deeper into the fractal. When a 
suitable finishing point is found the image 
already on disk can be used in conjunction 
with the present one to generaEe an entire 
animation with all the tweens being auto- 
matically produced by the software. 

The number of frames and amount of 
zoom is completely at your control As each 
new frame is generated it J s saved direct to 
dijk r As a result, the size of anims is limited 
only by available disk space. Ibis is especially 
useful when working with Fractuaiity's 
optional 24-bik output. 

Obviously with the varied needs of poterv 
tial users, flexible output is 
essential and here Fractuality 
scores well with options to 
render hi-res 16 colour IF H f 
Extra Half Brite, 32 colour lo- 
res or 24-bit IFFs in a selection 
of standard, interlaced and 
overscan ned screen resolu- 
tions, However, there's no 
AGA support as yet. 

Although this seems a well 
varied selection I must admit I 
would prefer an option for 
the screen resolutions of your 
choice. Although fine for cer- 
tain applications, this rigid 
structure will often mean 
some form of image process- 
ing will be required in order 
to supply the exact output 
you may require. Admittedly 
this is a small point but never- 


theless a bit annoying. 

In addition to sizing and file types, palette 
control is equally important. Fortunately this 
aspect of the program has oeen particularly 
well designed with a selection of 16 prede- 
fined colour gradients/com binatians r 

If you prefer a totally original look, 
DPaint-style colour pots, sliders, copy and 
swap options allow a new palette to be built 
from the ground up. 

Something 

In addition to the bask 16 colours addi- 
tional options allow rendering in both two 
and four colours plus a definable 2 4- bit 
range which in effect limits the smoothing 
between each colour component - a process 
which can often detract from the image 
rather than enhance it. 

The final, and definitely the most mes- 
meric aspect of the program, Is the built- in 
colour cycling whkh, with the aid of defin- 
able speed settings, allows the already beau- 
tiful fractals to pulsate with colour. 

This feature above all sold the final die- 
hard AC cynics on the software as conversa- 
tion. slowly became embroidered with the 
kind of phraseology usual reserved for 
Woodstock or Glastonbury. Another attrac- 


need to re- render to experiment as palettes 
can be interchanged; on an existing image as 
required. Only when a new palette is decided 
upon does a re-render become essential. 

QK, I admit that apart from the occasional 
artistic or DTV application Fractuality has 
fairly limited practical appeal however they 
don't come much more cynical than yours 
truly and 4 must admit to being completely 
hooked. 

If you're into serious maths, hardcore 
music, mind-blowing art or equally mind- 
blowing substances, Fractuality W J Y~ J 
is simply a must. FjIl.'. *

w 


I got the power 

As the techno-bods may be awar^ a true fractal Is an infi- 
nite entity and by definition should allow a limitless amount 
of zoom while retaining the same degree of detail. 

In the case of Fractuality this isn't strictly the case as for 
the sake of speed the maximum zoom allowed is 
0 . 000000000001 , 

For maths purists limiting a fractal's mathematical per- 
fection can be considered sacrilege but this tiny trade does 
make Fractuality the fastest fractal generator IVe ever used 
- it r s ideal For 68000 machines. To put the maximum zoom 
into perspective it's worth plagiarising the manual a little. 

Assuming you r re working on a 25an screen at maxi- 
mum zoom the unseen area of the Mandelbrot you are 
within would be roughly 2, 500,000,000 kilometres across - 
an area big enough to contain the complete orbit of 
Jupiter. Impressive stuff! 

And of course if you employ the program's dwell feature 
this tiny particle of fractal space will be just as clear as the 
entire Mandelbrot prior to your mammoth zoom..

A lthough largely ignored due to 
Vista Pro 2, Scenery Animator 
v2. 0 is making a comeback with 
a combination of good value and solid 
performance. 

tike its contemporary, the package 
employs OEMs (Digital Elevation Models) 
to generate reatecenes, four of which come 
with the package with an additional 32 
available as add-ons. 

As the name suggests, it is heavily 
geared towards animation and as a result 
boasts options to create both standard IFF 
and DCTV arums direct, as well as general 
ing single frames in both of the above for- 
mats plus IFF 2A s and 24- bit PCX images. 

Incidentally, Ml 24-hit anims can also be 
created on a single frame basis. Thankfully, 
all animations can be rendered either in full 
or in part. 

Although the main screen tends to be 
where most time is spent, the package is 
actually split into three separate areas. 
However, before wandering too far 111 con- 
centrate on the main screen's primary func- 
tion of finishing touches and fine tuning. 
The screen itself is dominated by the 
preview window which updates automata 
tally to show the present camera position 
and subsequent landscape whenever alter- 
ations are made. 

In addition, the window afso has a dual 
purpose as an optional rough anim viewer. 
Whenever an anim path is complete the 


Flight profile 

Although 4 separate interface, the 
program’s Profile screen is really part 
and parcel of Lhe anim options as it s 
only really ol any use when a p.ith is 
complete. 

From this unbelievably boring 
screen a lew essential changes can be 
applied, the first of which is the rela 
live altitude at each key frame, Often 
the software doesn’t make me perfect 
choice as far as altitude and indeed 
pitch are concerned and as a result a 
bit of minor editing does a great deal 
to enhance lhe over ill effect 

its here where the a lore mentioned 
5 button really comes into its own. 
Like both the map and main screen, 
the animation controls are on hand 
allowing you to scroll through (he 
existing keys editing the pitch and 
altitude as required.

software will generate a useful but admit- 
tedly rather jerky preview prior to the 
lengthy rendering process, 

In order to enhance the performance of 
the window, good camera control is essen- 
tial, and to this end Lhe software boasts an 
impressive array of orientation, zoom and 
pitch controls. 

For basic orientation the window again 
comes into its own as pointing the camera 
is simply a matter of clicking on the desired 
point within the window. 

Icon controls 

Actual movement, however, can be a fit- 
tie more involved. In the right-hand corner 
ol the screen awaits the program’s co-ordi- 
nate controls in the form of singular and 
combined X,Y and Z icon controls, 

These work exactly as you’d expect with 
the various options either moving Lhe cam- 
era back and forth, up and down, left to 
right or a combination of two axes simulta- 
neously. 

In order to control the effect, a crosshair 
box allows directional information to be 
input via the mouse. 

Although a usable method of naviga- 
tion, I must admit it does tend to be a little 


clumsy and ass a result basic camera place- 
ment is often much easier elsewhere in the 
package. 

Alongside the aforementioned box 
comes the final selection oF positioning con- 
trols, As mentioned earlier,, camera move- 
ment is well catered tor elsewhere but the 
main screen is definitely the best place to 
adjust banking. 

Once active this particular function 
replaces the crosshair with an artificial hori- 
zon which can then be adjusted via mouse 
dicks. 

Finally we come to the 
rotate and zoom options, the 
first of which emulates mouse- 
driven rotation within the 
crosshair - why this has been 
added In addition to the 
mouse option is a mystery. 

Zooming, however, is a 
much more useful feature, 
allowing the camera to 
remain static while altering 
the local length of the cam- 
era, producing a telephoto 
zoom which can vary from tfi 
degrees for ultra-wide angle 
to 400 for maximum zoom, 


On the lows* left of the screen awaits the 
program’s anim controls which well look 
at in detail at tittle later, while above these 
come the all-important Features which add 
the reality to your creations. 

First up Comes arguably the most impor- 
tant of all the parameters Land control 
From here you can add snow, rock, vegeta- 
tion and soil, all of which can be given 
default elevations. 

In addition, it's possible to adpust the

overall height of the present landscape by 
simply increasing or reducing the V I 
factor. 

This doesn't actual affect the D£M file 
but does produce either an extruded or 
compressed image when generated. 

For the more advanced user there's also 
an option to adjust the offset of landscapes 
which are to be appended but don't origi- 
nate from the Natural Graphics library ~ 
Vista Pro files are a prime sample. 

Alas,, due to the constrictions of the 
Amiga's standard palette only three of the 
four ground features can be applied simul- 
taneously within standard IFF output, while 
the program's 24-bit alternatives can ail 
display the full complement of four. 

Turn up the lights 

Next up come the Light settings, which 
can be adjusted manually or via the mouse. 
While not a perfect representation, the pre- 
view mstantly reflects any changes by 
updating the window with fresh shading 
where appropriate. 

Although a simple touch, it J s neverthe- 
less very useful when trying to avoid con- 
stant re -renders simply because the feel 
isn't quite right, 

The next duet add the water and sky 
elements to the image with the first of the 
two allowing the addition of a default sea 
level, either with or without waves or ocean 
parameters. 

Alongside come the very impressive Sky 
settings which allow cloud altitude, density 
and blending to be defined but perhaps 
most important of all, animation. 

For example, an entire stop-frame style 
anim could be produced by simply plonk- 
ing the camera in a pleasant spot, defining 
a number of frames and then animating 
the clouds floating gently by. 

Below these gadgets above await the 




Hh matter Aan pnriJiurdf OPT Nl* -nulpuf Jj pre Uy EftlJffh to forflf 


I cheap arid qufrJr fcoAdfl ) 1 f(wrt«f of art tail cuit I&kt 


Fractal and Tree settings with the first 
option allowing up to 65,000 seeds to 
choose from when rendering a random 
fractal landscape. This can then be offset in 
any direction for appending Lo others. 

Although a small requester, the Tree 
option hides perhaps one of the most 
impressive aspects of the package. User 
definable settings allow you to specify 
default levels for the top and bottom of the 
tree -line, plus its relative density and make- 
up - whether that be oaks r redwoods or 
perhaps a mixture of the two. 

Next up come the Screen controls 
which let you alter the palette, resolution 
and bi-tplanes. From this screen one of the 
few irritating aspects of the program 
appear in the form of the very limited num- 
ber of screen modes - at least for standard 
Amiga graphics - which means you're lim- 
ited to full screen images only, and to make 
matters worse there's no AGA... 

Admittedly there are options for hi and 
io-res, either with or without interlace and 
overscan. Nevertheless for serious applica- 
tions a totally user-definable seating system 


Animation options 


Although the program's anim controls are 
shared between the mam and map 
screens, the fatter of the two is definitely 
the best place to experiment, especially 
when dealing with looping anim 5 . 

As you may have already noticed, the 
software relies on a key-frame system to 
generate its frames. Although a little 
daunting at first, the process is really 
quite simple. 

First the required number of frames 
are added and then with the assistance of 
the mouse, various "keys’'' positions can 
be deFined. 

The software will the automatically 
interpolate the flight path of the camera 
using splines to produce a smooth anim 
which can be further enhanced by a 
definable degree of pitch during the 
turns. 

To give that fighter pilot feel the cam- 
era can be set to point as if following the 
nose of the imaginary plane, courtesy of 
the Dtan and curve options. 

Actually building a path is very simple. 


thanks to the tape deck- style controls 
which move you through the various 
keys. When a new key is required the 
camera is si-nnply placed at the new co- 
ordinates and the + hutton clicked to add 
or alternatively - to delete. 

To add user defined changes, the £ 
button allows you to apply and save 
manual chances to an existing key while 
the G button will delete an entire unsuc- 
cessful sequence. 

A final and invaluable option allows 
the automatic creation of looped anims 
which smoothly join the first and last key 
frames - something which is almost 
impossible manually. 

To avoid any errors on your part, the 
program also often the option of auto- 
matically avoiding collisions or alterna- 
tively warn if one is imminent 

For the real Tom Cruise types, a sepa- 
rate low option automatically glues the 
camera ten metres above the ground - 
often a rather bumpy ride, but if you 
have a need for speed it’s a must.,. 


* 



A fractal 
fly-through 
isn t exactly an 
everyday event 

would be a big improvement 

It's not all bad news, especially For those 
with quality image processing software 
and/or a 24-bit display board. From here 
the program's 24-bit buffer can be defined 
to the resolution of your choice so literally 
any size is possible. 

In addition, DCTV users also have a boost 
in the form of both three and four-bitpfane 
rendering modes, both of which take on the 
chosen Amiga semen resolution. 

The next four icons all provide a selec bon 
of on/off functions which include a view 
button for re-displays, an anim button to 
start multiple frame generation and finally 
its alter ego, the essential render button for 
statics. 

Better quality 

A detail button is the penultimate option 
which when active adds additional poly- 
gons - and m turn detail - to elements in 
the foreground of the image. 

Although the function does dramatically 
increase rendering times, the improvement 
iri image quality more than makes up for 
the sacrifice. 

After clicking on the final Map option, 
the familiar main screen disappears to reveal 
- not surprisingly - the program's map 
screen which depicts the current landscape 
via an topographical or overhead view. 

From fie re you can oversee the entire 
landscape with Lhe present camera position 
shown by a pair of converging red lines. As 
yau J d expect, the angle of convergence 
provides a rough graphic guide to the pre- 
sent focal lengdi/zoom of the camera. 

Again the mouse comes into its own with 
clicks on the left button hopping the cam- 
era around the landscape while a right click 
and drag reduces or increases lhe zoom fac- 
tor or camera position depending upon 
subsequent mouse movement. 

Mouse control is pretty much a I you'll 
ever need, although fine adjustment can be 
added to all the positioning and zoom 


param eters m anually when necessary. 

To adSRttWiftouch of realism, the map 
screen also offers the chance to add lakes 
to landscape which spread across the seen? 
according to laws of gravity - fortunately 
you are given the option to cancel the lake 
if you suddenly find yourself swamped. 

As the grabs show, the output quality of 
the program is on a par with anything 
especially concerning cloud and tree gener- 
ation. Another bonus is that the potential 
of the program can be exploited without 
any additional software something which 
isn't strictly possible within YlstaPro2, 

On the downside, the package isn't as 
flexible as Vista concerning the importation 
of bitmaps for the creation of designer fea- 
tures and landscapes. 

In addition, animation also falls a little 
short in relation to Vista but admittedly this 
is mostly due to the MakePath animation 
add-on. 

In short, lor the occasional user - and 
let's face it, a fractal fly-through isn't 
exactly an everyday event - Scenery 
Animate* is pretty good, if perhaps a little 
lacking in relation to the Vista/Makepatfi 
combination, 

For those purely interested in statics, 
however, it's on. a par with anything 
presently on the market - although before 
investing it might be worth taking a 
close look at our Vista Pro 3.0 
exclusive...

W hat better way to while 
away a few hours than 
with an absorbing game, 
and what better place to find your 
games than in the public sector, where 
you can try before you buy and get a lot 
of stuff for nothing anyway? 

Before we start, though, some good 
news. If you remember last month's 
review of Tell the Time from Deja Vu r 
you'll recall that my only gripe with this 
excellent education program was the 
fact that its digital clock told the time in 
a very non-standard way. 

Luckily, the author has re-jigged the 
program and now it tells the time as we 
all do, so no more confusion lor young- 
sters who could have got the wrong 
impression from the previous program. 

The new version is available now from 
Deja Vu, and should you have the older 
verston, send your dFsk to Mike Austin, 
10 Birch grove, Pane Avenue, Caerphilly 
CFB 3&G and he J ll update it tor you, 
Remember to send him an SAE, though.

After last month's education-dominated 
section, this time it's leisure ahoy as some 
of the very best PD games kick off the 
bargain pages of the magazine 


ASI Games 
disk 43 

Waily PD 

One of a pretty huge series of games from 
this group, ASI 43 concentrates upon nan- 
arcade games of the absorbing, puzzle 
type. 

First up is Octathello, which you've 
probably worked out is a variation on the 
classic Othello. But what a variation it 
turns out to be! In Octathello, you can 
choose a board of up to eight sides and 
numerous sizes (although normal Othello 


PUBLI 


is also playable by selection of the right 
parameters) so there are literally hundreds 
of different boards available to play on. 

The computer plays a pretty wicked 
game, and there are constant online help 
and rules available,, so you're never far 
away from a helping hand. 

It's impressively implemented, but a 
two-player option and the chance to 
select how well the computer plays would 
be nice. Still there are details in eluded on 
the disk as to how to get a full version for 
a meagre fee r so complaints aren't justi- 
fied here. It r s absorbing and fun, and 
better than the PC Windows version, too,,. 

Neat up is a computer interpretation □! 
the casino classic Roulette, It's a full and 
colourful version, and includes a "pot" of 
money for the player, full gambling 
control and a proper grid. 

There is a red and black roulette wheel 








in the top right-hand corner of the 
display, which is where my only real disap- 
pointment lies. If the programmers could 
have animated the wheel properly, includ- 
ing the ball whizzing around, it would 
have made It far more exciting.. 

As it is, the panels of the wheel just

graphics at all, and 
A the only thing this 

\§Lg 14 k 1 disk shines for Is, 

unfortunately, Iti 
enthusiasm. A regret- 
f M "miss ', I'm afraid. 

f Better by far 

Is the enigmatically* 
titled Friend i of Paula. 
Vo! II (Chris Wright) 
which, apart from 
being extremely welt 
presented, contains 
five OctaMED -created 

Mggg -. 

tunes which shine for 

the originality of 
their arrangements 
and production rather than for stun- 
ningly original sounds, 

A lot of the stuff has a loose New 
Order feel to It, and I here's no deny- 
ing that on first listen these tunes 
are very similar to a lot of other 
stuff that's knocking around, but It s 
the quality - especially On pieces like 
the plaintive Moscow with its weird 
effects, and the upfront Thh Must 
Be Heaven - that separates this disk 
from the crowd. 


Certainly none of these tunes 
would look out of place accompany- 
ing any game, which must be the 
ultimate compliment. An emphatic 


We span the country with this 
month's selection Of mulk disks, 
from the highlands of Scotland to 
Manchester to the beautiful South, 

Starting in the north, however, 
and Bagpipe Frenzy (Highland PD). 
At first glance these five tunes seem 
tike the perfect nightmare, hut 
they're actually better than good - 
they're brilliant, 

A lot of care has been taken over 
this, and it shows, The authors 
advise connection of your Amiga to a 
hi-fi (always a good idea anyway) 
and some sensitive tweaking of the 
bass and treble controls, and they're 
not far wrong when they say that 
It's hard to tell the difference 
between Amiga bagpipes and: the 
real things. 

The quality of the tunes Is 
furthered by the fact that they 
authors have bothered to sample 
and use the all-important grace 
notes - tiny frills which individualise 
playing and add greatly to the feel 
of naturalness often lacking in com- 
puter musk. 

The tunes are also written by a 


genuine piper, and

awesome "hit" for 
this one. 

Not quite So ~ 

accomplished^ I'm 

afraid, is the Prodigy 
Remix from Adam 
Smith (no, not the raving capital- 
ist...), This disk takes bits from all 
over the rather wonderful Prodigy 
Experience HP and mixes them with- 
out any regard for beat-matching, 
volume or, it would seem, anything! 

It’s as If a CD player has gone a bit 
haywire and Is playing few-second 
chunks of the CD version willy-nilly. 
Call me cold and calculating, but Tm 
bound to ask who got a sampler for 
Christmas, then? There are no 


I want your musk disks, so in the

flash slower and slower in a 
clockwise direction unul 
filially one is left highlighted. 
Stilt it doesn't detract from 
the playing, just dulls the Ion 
a little. A good version, 
Crossrrwe is the next 
game, and opens rather 
disconcertingly on a blank 
screen, A bit of judicious 
poking around, though, and 
you discover some menus 
hidden at the top, 

Basically, Crossmaze is one 
of those crossword-type 
puzzlers where you are given 
an assortment of words 
(rather than dues) and a grid 



you have to fit them dll In. 

You can initialise unique games, load 
and save games ygu r rc already in Ehe mid- 
dle nl, and you can even print out your 
puzzle' There is a very impressive Full he-lp 
facility, which can start you off, show you 
the finished puzzle (tut, tut) and various 
other serious to not-so-serious cheats 

Add in a two-player option arid the 
ability to time yourself, and you -e goE 
every puzzler's dream - a challenging 
word puzzle Where you don't have to wart 
until next time for the answer if you gel 
really stud. 

The other games on the disk did not 
want to load on my machine - perhaps 
they r re not Plus compatible? - buL they 
are Gameboy Tetris, Leapfrog (previously 
reviewed) and interlock. 

Even so, this is a games compilation 
which would prove more than enough lor 
any rainy day, Recommended,

magazine far where to get one?) there are 
interviews, "conceptual maps", complete 
listings and descriptions oF the plats af 
every Star Trek episode, and many other 
things scMl generally and Star Trek 
specifically. 

The magazine dties contain a few "nor- 
maT bits too, such as a couple of game 
and ‘'scopus" reviews - there are even PD 
reviews (watch it, lads!). However, on 
selecting PD reviews you're faced with the

It s a well-produced and attractive

Jason P Dunning 

Stardated February 1 991, it soon becomes 
clear that this is a disk magazine dedicated 
to that much-maligned group of social 
outcast, the Star Trek Fans, orlrekkies. 

As well as an editorial section and some 
bizarre adverts (fancy a tailor- made Star 


Creenies 

Deja Vu - i/126 

Gimbkig a dark lower to wreak revenge 
on a sorcerer as one is wort to do in this 
type of game - you find that things start 
to go terribly wrong. 

First, he manages to take your weapon 
from you as if it never really existed, and 
then he turns you and your two fellow 


players, Incredible Hulk-style, into big 
green undesirables - Green ies! 

As the sorcerer laughs, sounding suspi- 
ciously like Ming's Friend from the End dF 
Flash Gordon, you realise what lies ahead 
of you. As one of three players an ogre, 
a goblin and a troll - you have to enter a 
huge and foreboding maze, only leaving 
when the other two players are d^ad. 

Each player has his good or bad points. 
For instance, the ogre is by far the 
stranger af the three, but he's also the 
slowest and clumsiest. 

Various attributes within the maze can 
be used by various characters, and there 
are grenades, mines, bombs and baseball 
bats, all put there to help you to pop off 
your maze mates. 

Add speed,, healing and invisibility 
potions and a toilet should you "soil your 
loincloths" as the program puts it, and 
you have the basics of a top quality, three- 
player maze game. 

Each player has a window of his/her 



JvftryrJlJrkjT'.l gu-nfc' yrtrn 


own, which shows the view from your 
characters' eyes. All you have to do is seek 
out the others before they find you and, 
erm, kill them. 

Full of humour, atmosphere and Fun, 
thus is a great Amos game and one which 
deserves to do well. 

Superprix 

MBS 

This game is up-front from the start. A 
good, old-fashioned race around the track 
it says, and that's what It is. Viewed from 
above, and with the familiar small cars, 
you have to race against another player or 


the computer, in a clockwise direction, 
around a track.. 

It's one of those games where pushing 
the joystick up afways accelerates your car, 
no matter which way you're facing, It's 
the same principle as the control sets 
which come with radio-controlled cars, 
and is easy to get used to, 

Nice touches include the ability to 
enter your players' names, and a growly 
sub-bass embedded in the music which 
frankly disturbed me. Good stuff. 

Writers' 

Directory 

Immediate 1 Arts 

Compiled by Glaswegian writer James 
Morrison, Lhis is a catalogue of small and 
independent magazine and book publish- 
ers. It is intended for writer, music jour- 
nalists, illustrators, graphic artists and 
photographers who are eager to find out- 
lets for theif wock. 

Among the hast of magazines and 
book publishers covered I can guarantee 
that you won't have heard of a lot of 
them. All you do is select the category 
you're interested in - ie Music - and up 
pop a whole list of addressES and salient 
information regarding each publication. 

Sections include such things as comics, 
poetry, films and videos, and there is also 
useful information littered throughout, 
Such as the warning to be wary of Vanity 
publishers,, who are out to make a quick 
buck from naive writers. 

Also available In book form, this is a 
highly useful and readable directory for 
anyone with a creative bent and nowhere 
to release theif penl-up artistic urges! >

* Tower Hall 

Deja Vu-L/128 

Opening with an atmospheric 51 simple 
pklure of Tower HiN an a dark, thundery 
night, this graphic adventure is simply but 
colon rfu fly presented and packed with 
atmosphere, B 

Totally mouie-dfiverip the pictures are 
good, if A little small, and the words add 
enough without being too w-atfly. 

There are all the usual puzzles and cam- 
mands, people to meet, locations to 
discover and the like, and even when the 
game has to load a location from disk, 
you're hardly kept waiting at all. The 
atmosphere created was good! enough to 
persuade me to grab a pen and paper and 
get mapping! 

At one point l started wondering 
whether there might actually be a place 
called Tower Hill, because the program 
had started going on about the tact that I 
was in Snowdonia National Park and that 
the M0Q6 was Lwf sting away into the 
distance! 

Steals some of the romance for me r 
that, but there you go. This one's 
definitely worth checking out,

Cot any 
good PD? 

If you're a library , a programmer, 
a dosser - t care not r for l judge 
people purely by Cite quality of 
the PD they send me. So why not 
get those Jiffy bags out, get 
those drives a-copylng and lob 
the lot In the post to me, Phil

Particularly in demand at the 
moment (and so more likely to 
be reviewed) are music demos, 
good games and original applies 
lions, so if you've any of those 
you wish to publicise, you know 
where to Send 'em. Remember, 
the world is I isle ring,.. 



Slideshows and demos dominate this month's "sit back 
and watch" column. First is a highly colourful disk called 
Comic Arts Vo I It from MBS. which contains several exam- 
ples of the comic-oriented artwork of one Jason 
Newington, 

Starring Captain America, the Fantastic Four ("old but 
tough') and that old perennial S pi derm an, these pic- 
tures are all of an extremely high standard. Than os and 
Spiderman Is my favourite, which shows old web fingers 
In a right pickle, make no mistake! 

It's all accompanied by a tune which stars from where 
Technotronks Pump up the |um finished off, and is an 
impressive disk. 



Cuplaln America rfMJMjijr eelre, mety hemic 


Not as Impressive but definitely weird Is FI Girls, also 
from NBS, This features cartoons showing a number of 
varying ly- cl ad (but never Indecent) women at various 
places around a race course, draped across Formula One 
cars and their drivers and in all kinds of strange poses 
and places. 

Apart from a love of these girls and a penchant for 
the sponsorship of Camel (the brand appears on cars, 
backgrounds and clothing all the way through) | simply 
can t see a reason for this bizarre disk s existence. Still, 
why are any of us here?...

and Visions 



Ahem, Less of the half-baked philosophising and on to 
Lethal Exit from Wack PD, This demo starts with an 
unnerving oscilloscope-style heartbeat monitor before 
moving on to some seriously mind-blowing, and quite 
original In places, graphics^ 

There are not enough vectors to have you reaching for 
the double Amigai and Control key, and although it Is 
an old school-style demo, we are mercifully denied juve- 
nile credits across the bottom of the screen all the way 
through. 

A good place to see some graphical effects which E can 
guarantee you won't have set eyes on before.

Finally we have HMTV Home Security, a "humorous" 
demo loosely based around how to ensure your home 
doesn't get robbed. After the Hit Man TV logo (which 
looks, no doubt deliberately, very similar to the DtTV 
logo) the demo begins, accompanied by some lovely 
Flamenco guitar musk which frankly is itl best part. 

Still, If you like extremely elementary pictures of peo- 
ple on wheelchairs being blown sky-high and spoof 
Remington adverts where the razor does indeed shave as 
dose as a blade (a very big blade...) then you'll like this. 

"Better than nothing, but only just/ r the program 
self- depreciatingly Jokes near the beginning. It Isn't 
lying. 

As always, if you think you can do better than this lot, 
get those disks In the post- The sky Is the limit if you 
open your mind,..

Psygnosis leave their Lemmings behind and head on 
down the adventure path with their old buddies DMA 


s there someone who really gets 
up your nose? Someone who's 
limbs you wouldn't mind sepa- 
rating from thdr forso, or 
whose eyes you feel would look 
muth better hanging down their 
cheeks on thin tendons? 

Maybe there's more than one? 
Invite them round to your place then,, 
and boot up Hired Guns to relieve 
those tensions. 

Everyone has their own style of reviewing □ 
game. Personally, I he to begin with an introduction 
(he that one up there) ond overview, then talk q lii- 
tie abotri what it hot to cffer, before giving iy. opin- 
ion as to hew well there options ore implemented - 
with reference! to other products id applicable 

Tawerds the end of a review I will describe g& 
I con T# graphed ond audio quality and dis- 
cuss its contribution to ihe gproeas a whole. 

Well sock that 1 I know (here's on old adage that 
we should mu# the hnl till fost, bul really - why 
bother? if something stands- up and shouts Tm □ 
very cood thing indeed ' at the top of it! voice then 
the wodd! should hten 

In ewe you're wondering what Tm gelling all het 
up abouh if's the sound. Ye& - that which usually 
comes towards the back of a review - the phonefocs, 
the intonation, she dioc&idics, the sonarific reso- 
nance (con I have my thesaurus bock now? - Ed). 

At the outset, ond before eoch level there ore 
several intro lunes whkh are by far and away the 
best tunes I have ever heard in a computer gome, or 
cm likely to db for some time I susood. 

Brian Johnston, brother of HG proyammer and 
designer Scofl, has done an obsdutefy luperh job of 
setting the perfect mood with his fostmovfog bassy 
synthesised music; canned your Amiga to the stereo 
and onnoy the neig'-uourj - its great! So now you 
Strww.. 

The game then. Well Hired Guns is an adjure 
at the core, but nothing quite so common as jutf 
that, tfs o first person perspective 3D adventure, 
and very bndly eaten forip to four players. 

Set in, 2707 when is watched by Big 

Brother and work is carried out by robots, there 
wish a band cf merenpries who specialise in bump- 
ing people off,, taking on any job at the right price. 

One such pb Is to blunder brainlessly into the 


attract vely named town of Graveyard w*d rescue a 
number of hostages who unwillingly became 
masoned on their way to Budins in Skegpess 
One, two, three or four p-oyers choose their 
character! hom a cost ef 1 2 f all sporting different 
attributes in lernis of stamina, fimess. brainpower 
and the ab lily to juggle a forge variety of smoked 
cheeses. This done iKs off into the wild blue yonder 

- or rather, ddl brown landscape - in search of 

hostages. 

Ot course, it's no coincidence that Gmsfyard is 
so nemd - s peaky beasts and skeletons stoik 
around tooled up to the eyes with all manner of 
weaponry, just begging to be blown away.. 

And if 5 here where he first disappointment 
occurs, When a nasty - or a friend,, for that natter 

- it shot, oil we see are a few red ‘mes sloshed 
across the new corpse that resemble a naughty 


child's homework more than a death scene, 

The soiled effect! ore gnod though - Jlhough 
rtan, fh eyre realistic, and odd a Ne depth to 
bckluslre 3D graphics, The profcfem is Shot the 
screen is divided up into four parts la accomodate 
the lour players, making each individaS play ng 
area very small. 

Fair enough though - Hired Guns is a rarity in 
that it caters for this many simultrr ^.15 players, but 
is would hove hwn great if when in one or iwo- 
player mode the size of the play area become 
ledger 

Instead, if only you enter the game P h is you 
who takes charge d the lour characters. They can 
be linked to follow each other, which makes control 
easier, but I can's hute thinking this pari could have 
been honied better. 

dues to the whereabo^s of the hostages kf< be 


found scattered throughout, a : ong with e^Sra 
weapons, medical packs ond various ultra-modern 

0*di. 

H red guns can be spfe into two definitive sec- 
tions; the campaign part - nearly two million cubic 
metres of playing arm, where a clever strategy and 
lots land lots and bts..„] of paiiam is required, 
and the action part - 20 stand abne leuds that ccr 
be treated as individual "quick ie fl adventure blasts. 

It's evident (worn piaying tens that a hell of 0 let 
of time and effort has been put into making it one 
very forge gome. And indeed, it is forge - so large 
in fact, that despite the individual levels, ultimately 
the tiny ploy area, dork graphics and the large 
gaps bpween action make it 0 product locking iv 
any mass upper: I - a gome ihot will become o 
chare bng before completion.

JONATHAN IflADDOOC 


liouheirt in hit tpare lime likes In ran up 
for na apparent reason 


H ow many times have we, the 
gomes buying public, seen 
products arrive at the shops 
with omoiirtg graphics and! 
unbelievable sound, only to find that 
they play like a damp squid? Yep,, 
far toe many times far my liking. 
Psygnosis are normally the culprits - 
take Shadow of rhe Snast 1 and 1 as an 
example. 

Now Thallon, the company behind 
such hits as A32Q Airbus, have produced 
Lion heart, offering amazing graphics 
and unbelievable sound - but does if 
have the playability? 

Destiny is a funny thing bn t it? Do ycu bcheve 
in being in ihe right place at the nghl time? Well, 
the hero of this platform hoct'envup mast definite- 
ly bdiev ?5 in destiny. His name is Valdyn, other- 
wiss know as lianhearf because of his reckless 
cou^oge and fierceness.. 

FESTIVITIES 

Vuldyn might be feave, but that didn't shoo h im 
being put in prison for no reason whatever. 
A few days poised and he was taken Iron 1 hit call 
and presented to the King whp explains that the 
Shewing 1 Festival is on in less 4ian three deys_ 

A! laid festive the King has to skew □ holy 
jewel to his people to prove hit righi to rule. Of 
course the jewel has been stolen, end the < ing 
wants Valdyn to bring h back before the festival 
start!. Why Voldyn? Destiny diat s why. The name 
of the jewel is The Lionheorf, 

Ytt r unfortunately it's yet another platform 
gome, bvl you never know, it could Ik differs I. ! 
have to admil the greahres are truly e*celfent. Ypjr 
hero is really well animated and drawn, ahhough 
he doe* tana to bek like a cress between Lion-C 


out of Thundarcals and He-Mon [and indeed, 
Bifta himself. It's the hair - Ed). 

The backgrounds ore superb and the pare? a* 
really gives everything that look of quality - main- 
ly hecoi'ie it is d ployed in intedrce, this looks 
nealfy good on a monitor . bul c-oufel be 0 bit dif- 
ferent on a television se\ 

in the tunes department there are a 
whole batch of top high quality Amiga mimical 
ditties, but there isn't much to report on 
the sound effects front, although whcl there is k 
adequate. 

Now an ta the real y important bit, Payability, 

I was quite surprised, because I thought it would 
be exactly like Shadow af she Beast and suffer 
really badly. However this is much man? playable 
th<in P&ygnasis overrated effort. 

Thera are a few mg- 

gles, because the Ha r drown like the evil 

controls don't respond 
m well as they shouH. 

Nevertheless 
you can''! really fault the 
playability. 

Lion heart h fairly 
addictive, but no great 
challenge on the easy 
level. There are two 
more difficulty settings, 
hut instead of your 
enemies getling harder 
la kill, the whale set 
changes completely, 
which is ii o really 
good idea bacavse you 
actually get two 
games for the price 
done 

Lionheart ii a great 


platform hack- em-up - one of the best af its type. 
Tap mark! -go to the graphics and 
music, and thankfully ihey managed lo 
make it playable, In fact ihe only reasons 
I mark it down is that for some reason ii 
slows down in ports end then speeds up really 
quickly. 

Also if you take the graphics and sound away 
you're left with a fairly bog standard platformer ■ 
and some gamers might not ue willing ta pay for 
yet another one 

Lionhearr is goad, bui if* not Gamer Gold 
material. However, this might igm out to be a 
dark horse and shoot right up to the lop of the 
charts. Then again, we all know how rightly picky 
seme of you are. 

So r my verdict - LianhecH i$ worth it if you'^ 


load th i n ny that yew arc 


A bug in the system 
b no matrl for the 
mighty Li on heart 


Adventure and action all the way 
in this swashbuckling slash-and- 
hack-'em-up from thallon 


IV.^E 









C avemen eh - who'd be one? The 
hours are long, conditions poor, 
wages low, and you ccn't even 
have □ nice hot both when you 
return home from slaughtering u 
Dipilod«us for Sunday It rich* 

There 1 3 no Easttnders, ten pin bowling, onemas 
Of kebab houses, and the only form of recreasiof^il 
xirswir a to dress your kicfe up os plants and take 
:els cn h ® w lofvg Iwyll survive in the Brontosaurus 
pen. 

It was into this cold and hostile world of just a 
few Ir II an years ago that Mr and Mrs Chuc* and 
Ophelia Rock brought Chuck Jr - the heir to his 
'other' s n^wfy built car manufacturing fortune. 

'tes then's right - the formerly gormless master 
of the belly butt hos sharpened up his image since 
the dosiog sequences of the original game, a r <d 
new Finds himself as sde proprietor of the world's 
second largest cur manufacturer. 

Sounds good., and il is - but not for bog , as the 
inevitable enemy |this time it's Brick Jogger, owner 
of rival company Datslone) tak® it upor himself to 
make the Rocks lives a misery by spiriting away 
Chuck and holding hrm to ransom, lor his 
company. 

BRILLIANTLY ANIMATED 



Tlunt'i always a way to scrvrnp apices tor 
a resourceful young «vt b.^tpy 



Allegedly ttw largest ever Amiga 
sprit# - A real headache ! 


Chuck Rock 2 


This. is where *he gome begins., and through a 
brilliantly animated comic infra we see Chuck bun- 
dled away and his faithful son listing intently as 
Hie demands ore made to Ophelia over the phone. 

Without further ado, the pint-sized caveaaby 
breaks through the constraints of bis primitive 
playpen, picks ua hit dad's best dub and sets off 
an his, rescue mission. 

Nothing you hove read up to now is likely to 
have convinced you that San of Chuck is a radical- 
ly different and innovative coficepl - and ifs not. 
As far as platform games go, they don’i come with 
□ much more traditional presentation than this; but 
il is the underlying quality thrOughcM which sets it 
apart bom other Goon fat hvot Great efforts such 
a* Risky Woods, James Pond rjnd Core's own 
Doodlebug. 

Junior iso i a particularly large sprite - I mean, 
he's a baby, offer all - but he's animated perfectly, 
right down to the goofy toothless grin, and 
tantrums when all his energy is gone. Three lus- 
cious layers, of pafcJlax m silky s-nooth through- 
out I'M? six main levefo; combine this with the stun- 
ning colours and detail of the backgrounds and 
you have a game that really begins to show off the 
capabilities of he Amiga. 

The first level is The Suburbs, and it’s everything 
you'd expect hem the team who brought us Chuck 
Rack, and more besides. It's broken down into 
three sub levels, and features many of the items 


SON OF CHUCK 

Chuck and Ophelia do the wild thong and are 
blessed with a beautiful, bouncing baby hoy 


one might expect to find in a Stone Age lown 
Also included is what Cora cfoim to be the largest 
sprile ever seen on ihe Amiga - it's a huge 
dinosaur, only she feet end lower Ieg 5 of which 
are visible, and it has to be avowee os it stomps 
across the screen. 

All the fevfllf are set out in similar way to the 
first - apart from level two which contains a sole 
ntaidve slumbering dino whose back you must 
make your way across in the face of an onslaught 
of unfriendly neighbours and overgrown insects. 

Humour is the main ingredient of the game, 
and the expressions of many of yow chagrined 
adversaries as they find themselves thumped or 
barged nff-screen almost alone make il worth 


Loot dtfl too far the small dinosaurs, who when 
hit suddenly lose their disguises to reveal the 


slightly dozed dressed up caveman inside 
Whereas Chuck Snr u»d his excessive stomach ta 
fight his way to he captorod Ophelia originally, 
Junior relies an foe man-sized dub to rescue his 
dad, which he drags doggedly behind him 

Some of she characters within the gome pro 
interactive, in that they will help you overcome cei" 
tain obstacles Fur instance, a long row of spik® 
■on the third level is seemingly msurmountabte until 
you enlist the help of a friendly giant ant who 
apparently doesn't imatf tcrfeiing a few sharp pokes 
in foe batty 

MIDI-GAMS5 

T he colour, animation and fluidity of movement 
on the level guarciems is equal to anything Team 
17 could offer, and |ust in cose anyone should 
become red up with the platform action premature- 
ly, there ate four mini -gam® with in the levels to 
provide Few extra chuckles 

It's difficult to foult Son of Chuck in any specific 
area since Core hove given us an ex cel font sequel 
to o well iked gome. As for as platformers go if 
hos e-rerything you could wish for and I for one 



won'? be content until I've finished il legitimately, 
Unfortunately this may be sooner rather than 
laser, because despite the manic nature of the 
game, those determined enough shouldn't find it 
too much of o problem to guide Junior safely to the 
Datstone car pail, 

Hoviing said foot, there ore three difficulty set- 
tings to choose from, and the humour, colour, cute 1 
ne?s avd fen ■ net to mention the tunes, some of 
which ore very reasonable - mean that Chuck 
Junior is the worthy successor to his dod's title os 
Kingof theCpvefiien.

There's no lei up from Merseyside os 
Psygnosis take to the skies for a belated 
bout of Saddam bashing 


F rom Psygnosis, the people who 
brought us Lemmings, Beast 3, 
Sill's Tomato Gome and more 
recently Walker and Prime 
Mover, comes Combat Air Patrol, yet 
further proof - if any were needed - 
that few car match them for consistent 
quality. 

You might have thought it was p bit kite fa 
bring out a simulation based on the- Gulf War, 
but then again. we are tfill getting product relai 1 
ing to the two World Won, so I guess it Isn't too 
badly timed 

In fad, Psyonosii ore cheekily lumping in 
ahead of Electronic Ant, whose bdiconter-bosed 
version of the war against Saddam is about to 
moke ihe leap from console to Amigo. Bui more 
about that next month 

EXPULSION OF FORCES 

Sc the Gulf Woj it h iKw - the primary objec 
tive being tha expulsion of tragi fortes from within 
the bound ories of Kuwait, The action begins 
around Autumn 1990, shortly after Soddom and 
his motley throng overran Kuwait but before 
Desert Storm got under way. Of course. if you 
achieve this objediue it doesn't have to stop there, 
ond you can cany out as many retaliatory mea- 
sures as you like. 

It seems the programmers were unaware of 
British involvement in the conl-licl, since you take 
pant of an American stationed on the battleship 
USS Theodore Eoosevdr. # 

Combat Air Patrol happily follows the trend of 
several recent flighl 51 ms in that it ir> easy right 
hem the outset to jump into 0 plane and enjoy a 
quick f ighl without consulting several dozen 
pages-wofih gf manual beforehand. Thai's all 


very well - o very good feokre indeed, to Fad - 
but it is the tong term challenge of any game o» 
tfib nature which eventually determ toes its success 
- and here CAP doesn't disappoint 

From the menu at ihe start you are led into the 
briefing room - a nice picture of several burly 
men gathered around a projection screen - to 
soled a mission. The one you choose determines 
whether you will be dying an FI4 Tomcat, or ITS 
bigger but less tmpnessivefe named brother, the 
r ll Hornet. This done, it's, off to the VideoDato 
machine I he ]uri made that name up - Ed| to 
choose which pilot you d like to be, making your 
decision based an experience, temperament, 
physical fitoess and any aversions to heights or jet 
engines they may hove. 

What then - gel that tend up in the air? Hell 
no, we need weapons, and what bettor place to 
gel some than the handy weapons select screen? 

li isn' t pediops surprising that the Yanks began 
to lake out British troops in the Gdf when y&u 
take a look at these - every kind of armament any 
intrepid pilot could even need, and br too many 
to ewer run short 

The Tomcat's ore limited to air-to-air mi-Hiles, 
ranging from dose range cannon to lon*| range 
rtossifes, while the hlomete con carry the dearly 
accurate (it says here) AGM-62 Walleye air-to- 
ground glide bombs 

Wiih weapons attached! it's time to take to the 
skies and kid some proverbial bottom. Getting 
your plane airborne couldn't be easier - it's up 
and away from the flighl deck at the touch of just 
two buttons. 

Even if this proves too difficult there is on 
option to start your mission from a mid air posi- 
tion above the target, though 0 sltcmge quid here 
is that the engines slill need la be started, and ony

O Kj » you're stropped for cash 
and you wont some really 
good games* H r s far too 
embarrassing to buy a bud- 
get, so what on earth are you going to 
do? 

Well, onfl of the best ways al getting more br 
your money is to buy a compilation^ which is risky 
because you almost always get an awful game in 
your throe-pack. 

Mm™, well nul ihij time because &eou Jolty 
hove deeded lo release o package called The 
Greatest ord by golly they are all really greai fef a 
change. 

Lei's staid for safety' s rak in reverse alphabeti- 
cal order. Pint up is lum el the Temptress. Lure is 
an interactive adventure game with a difference,, 
the difference being ‘Virtual theatre’. I can hear 
you all now; 'What's virlud theatre then, Mr 
Gamer chap?” 

Well, in normal adventure gomes, the charac- 
ters tend to appear once and then you’ll never see 
them again. In lure eodh of them lead their own 
lives. 

For instance, if a chofactws soys: I'm going 
d own to the tavern br a swift jar, * then ycw"ll find 
that character there. 

This makes Lure one of the most realistic adven- 
tures t have e*er played Ifs aute little ideas like 
•virtual theatre that separate good from average 
gomes. 

You play the pari af Demerit, o rather reluc- 
tant hero who has to sewe his world from dribbling 
and videos creatures known a? Skod and discover 
who the Temptress k, 

Another goad thing about Lure is thol yea slort 
the game wi thoiit knowing exody what to e4o. So, 
ch you progress you hnd out about what's 
going on and what your task is. 

The Graphics are excellent with some wonderful 
backdrops. It's all is controlled via the epod old 
mouse and is SO simple even TVry Christian would 
be abb to play it. Err, then again maybe not. 
if you're looking ier an adventure game to keep 

E hj occuptfld for q couple of months then look no 
rther than Lure of the Temptress 

WHIRLWIND 

Next gpme up for quest’onsng is Jimmy 'White's 
Whirlwind Snooker Before Jimmy's I personally 
thought that playing snooker m my computer 
would be cm incredibly sad thing to do. 

I mean you might as well go down the pub, 
have a few beers and challenge your mates at 
snooker rdher than si! at home and be lonely with 
the mouse as your only friend. 

Raw wrong can someone be! Jimmy White's 
Whirlwind Snooker is the best snooker game br 
any computer ever. For starters it's jitil so realise

By golly it's Beau Jolly and they've just brought 
out a new game* It's called Lure of Jimmy White's Dune 
or something and it's the greatest, err apparently 



Lure of the Temptress - -in

game 


thtf you con almost be there, except you hew to 
chalk up yewr mauie rafre p than your cue. 

Ik's also the fastest smoothest snooker game 
e^r, plus all the belli oel like proper snooker 
ball s for a change- 

If you're a snooker bn or even if you're not 
then you limply must have Jimmy White's m your 
games collection. It's a modern day dassic. Last 


up is Dune - on adventure based on the book 
and film d the some name which incidentally 
starred Sting )ho ho). 

Dune is guile a bit different from Lure of the 
Temptreii which is a good thing because you 
wouldn't warn ta put than logether in a oompib- 
tion pack. Unbss of course il was called *Tfie 
Greater - Three gomes which o'e very alike, bui 
all have different names”! 

Dune is a blazing hoi desert planet which is 
populated by a tribal-race colled die Fremeri. Tta 
plane! is ihc source of the mosl precious Jub- 
ilance in the whole universe, a jpice ca'led 
Melange. 

Melange lets space navigators see into the 
future, so that *«r can safely find other planets 
Also it makes you live longer. 

Dune features some af the best graphics I hove 
ever seen and boosls quite o moivelkji sound- 
track to boat - on entertaining adventure game. 

OK, there are yowf thrw gomes and os you 
can see ol af them are classics in their awn rights. 
If you don't own any of them, I strongly suggest 
you buy this corfipilahon. if you think aboul it, 
ym/re getting each game for a tenner anyway, 
it’s, a bargain, guv.

Another 
couple of 
golden oldies 
to tiring a 
lump to your 
throats, 
perused by 
Paul 



TURRICAN by 

Rainbow Arts 



There are any number of plarfonmers knock- 
ing around as we al» know; and although 
f ewer in number, shoot-'em-ups aren't exactly 
a ranty ttther, One game that manages to 
combine the best dements of both is Tumcan, 
an ecms-old affair from the where are they 
now?’ German company, Rainbow Arts. 

There is some story’ about evil warlbcfcs, ref- 
nbie nightmares and a general threat to 
mankind, but ft all pales into insignificance 
when the action begins and you proceed to 
make your way through the \ 3 levels of vio 
fantastic platform ery. 

Looking for all the world like 3 metallic psy- 
borg-type person (whkf i indeed you an?], you 
nave an impressive choice of weapons with 
which to dispense of your foes. 

Mines, forcefieids, mufti-shot cannons and 
a huge laser mean that even the saddest of 
gamesplayers es ensured a least a few manures 
o# mindless violence before one of the many 


enemies turns you into dogmeaL 

Contemporary games of Efts ifk offer poetty 
much the same thing, but a feature that 
stands out in Tumcan is the ease of use: an 
weapons can be implemented using Just the 
Fire button 

ScnofJing throughout is top notch, and can- 
kering it's nearing the ripe old age of four, 
Turrican's asnumadon of the levels and sprites is 
not to be sniffed at, A different tune accompa- 
nies each level, and agam LheyYe not half 
btfd. 

There is barely a break, in the action all the 
way through, and should you find it too hard 
going, you can always fell back on the option 
of turning yourself briefly into an indestruc- 
tible gyroscope. 

Add in power-ups aplenty and the odd 
secret level and what you have is a trury fun 
and addictive game that shows only the 
slightest signs of to pensionable age-

What a strange thing to do - feature a 
game in Blast from the Past when the 
sequel is reviewed elsewhere in the mag. 

No \i isn't - not really. You see, there 
wiii be loads of you who prayed feat, 
drank, breathed, slept...] this a couple of 
years ago, but probably Just as many agam 
who hove since entered the computer 
game world and are wondering what afJ 
the fuss Is about. 

Since one idea |money aspect aside] of 
a sequel is to provide further entertain- 
ment for fans of the original, then what 
better way to point 1 2 fans in the direction 
of more fun than by featuring the classic 
Lems? Makes sense, dunnit? 

What's new then? Well nothing - I 
mean, Jfs the original isn't it, hut that 
doesn't mean there isn't still plenty o£ fun 
to be had. 

The Lemmings have just eignt skills in 
this prequef - they can climb, jump, float 
downwards using an umbrella, explode, 


block, bui/d and dig across, diagonally or 
down. Whereas in L2 the difficulty of the 
revels varies from tribe to tribe, the skill level 
here can be chosen, ranging from the 
beginners-only Fun level to the tooth-rtch- 
rng Mayhem, and the 99 levels are divided 
equally into the four categories, 

The chaotic music is here, as are the 
hilarious sound effects and brilSarrt anima- 
tion, as you would expect and more care- 
ful thought needs to be put into many of 
the more difficult levels due to the “lack" of 
Lemmings' skflls, 

The Tribes is undoubtedly a dassrer 
product - the programmers have had h,jn 
years to come up with new idea: 
but those who discover Lemmings by first 
playing the segue! and frnd themselves pin- 
rng when all the levels have been com- 
pleted would be well advised to check out 
this oldie. Better still, get your hands on the 
double pack with the data disk and all your 
Lemfoneliness wrll vanish. 





T he whole world has gone puzzle 
mod. Humans, Lemmings, 
Kru sty's, Sill Tomatoesi up lad- 
ders, down mountains, across 
piles of bricks and into traps. I thought 
that just about every avenue of the 
wildly papular pastime of manoeuvring 
things around a monitor screen had not 
only been driven down, but also 
reversed bock up, had a three-point 
turn performed upon it, been 
re-macadamised, token up and had a 
vegetarian hypermarket built an it. 

But apparently nol, because up pop Edipre, 
w+kj evidently, not content wilh n iverefy busying 
themselves wilh the kind of intengatodic warfare to 



Hello - I'm tk here of the game. I! don't 
have a name and I'm noi nearly » cute 
in ml life 


be bund elsewhere in ibis iesve. have noticed i+kii 
somewhere hock in a hidden vortex of time ihere 
is □ little dnagan, which for some reason ex other 
needs rescuing from a cove. 

II isn \ an) 1 aid cave Ok sure, it's made af nock 
bob quite damp, but it i$ at the exit to this 
subterranean hollow where the strangeness 
begins No sooner has ihe dragon mode his way 




Grands I fun's answer to the lemmings - 
it's a little German dragon tost in time 


through it when another cave appears - and 
another, n-d ormthef, A hundred gf them, in fact 
I realise you know what's earning nest, but ill 
explain it anyway because I am the granc mailer 
of ledium. Yes - each cave constitutes a level 100 
in all - a 100 level gome [you're not jaksng about 
ihe tedium - Ed). 

The levels consist of various formal- ons af 
aquore blocks, on 000 “the cave enhance - the 
dragon appears. Sony to keep referring to the 
mythical Kre-b en+iing bwtf as "the dragon', hut 
ii wosn'l me- who Jiegletted lo give- it a name 
Where was I? Square blocks - yes, the cave ii 
foil af them and most ore put there just to hamper 
your progress. Others are movable though, some 
in bur directions, others in two, and some in just 


one. and the idea is to transport ihe nameless 
dragon la the cave s exit by wuy of these movable 
black? 

Not an easy task. The most important piece of 
kit ii a logical mind- On first mspsetien some of 
the levels seem impossible. Is's □ nice against ttae 
like most puzzler*, with a password a or each 
Wei. 

A different tune accomoanies each level a^d 
we ore given the option to change the back- 
ground. But apart from this Stone Age relies on 
gameplay alone, which is oddkHve in an "oh god 
this i* just ridiculous* j type fashion. 

As puzzle games ga this is a very competent 
effort, whh Igstobilily in the difficult later stages. It 
does look very blond though, and could have 


done with a cute/larger main sprite 

Several people in our office were hooked, but 
ii may slturejle to assert itself in 0 market 1 dread? 
crowed with quality products.

ABANDONED PLACES 2 


ICI continue their buy^'em-up policy and 
bring us the second instalment of the 

spooky D & D tale 


L ondon Zoo isn't the imfy one to Fed the cur- 
rent Financial pinch. Publishers of API 
Electronic Zoo, unfortunately went tally up 
bte last year , but noi before they finished 
the coding on the seoud. ICE bought up the lights, 
civd hen? d is for your ctelsctohon. 

It's oil put together by the team who did API , 
who incidentally mast recently brought us Piracy, 
Continuing from the original, ws are led to believe 
that ' the 'world has nwed on ' - 400 yeari cm in 
fact, and that 1 the Pendugmalhc creator of the once 
evil [but now dead) Srefiagh, has decided to take 
out his revenge on the wwld. 

Now the world isn t tee keen to be the recipient 
of Kiid vengeance, and to cut a fang story short, a 
selscl party is sent to cordrofti the vengelul 
Pendugmalhe and to save al and sund 7 . 

if you played API - and who wouldn t after the 
sparkling review afforded it by Gcsner? - you can 
iron 5 for your saved characters, otherwise [f$ c 
scratch start. 

After □ becmtifol animated inno, what we find is 
basically evarylhing one could expect in a 
Dungeon Master done, namely, dungeons, mon- 
sters, swords and spells, Dodgy control method 
apart, there really isn't a huge glitch at all. 

The gome is very large indeed and far ffom 
easy lg Finish., but products of this . k are old, and 



they look it. 

Fmding your way around a too familiar maze 
and lacking monsters may be marry people's idea 
of enjoyment, nrd quite right too, but the concept 
and novelty wore ihin long before now And 


although AP2 is a beher-than some representation 
of the genre the fact that we one m 1 192 means ii 
tads iirelf, unfairly perhaps, in the Fanatics Only 
zone.

seeing os computers art ani of the fosteil growing

in the industry every year. 

If you buy Sleepwalker, gv$r £4 will go b help 
fund projects in Africa and the United Kingdom 
If s iwt a big percentage of the £25 ode mg price, 


but every little amount helps. 

Normally Gamer is sent all software for Iree, 
bui in our cast we were Wing rather guilty, so 
out come the Gamer wallet and we decided to 
buy it, just so we con say we did our bit. 

In Sleepwalker you pfoy the port of Uolph the 
dog and the idea behind the game is probably the 
simplest since Space Invaders. 

Going walkabout 

Lee, your young master, has had been having 
problems in the sleep department, While he J i 
□deep he decides to go walkabout. Now, this isn't 
tea bod - normally he just wo*:* around his room 
for o bit and gets back into bed. 

"his time someone has left his bedroom win-

As if by chance Ralph has suddenly found him-

being squashed, run over by irucks and even 
roosted.

Sleepwalker is my favourite game of 1 P93 so 
fc cr ll combines bn liant graphics and sound with 
cool playability and is very addictive. 

Hey, it's also an original idea and original

Well all I can say is there must be a lot 
of desperate gamers ant there. | don't 
like saying it, but I told you so. Belitvedl 
all the hype, that's what you did. Taken 
in and spot out* Well, da you want to 
put wrongs to rights? Ail you have to do 
is buy Body Blows and maybe HI for^

Str&f rfighter 2 was the number one gome over 
Christmas and that! was oil down ho mass market 1

game was good or bed - Streehnghter 2 was des-

there are a lot of silly people aul there who don't 
i&ten I could see it coming □ long time ngg. in fact 
I said In ihe news pages when Gamer first heard 
about SF2 that it would go to number one.

Don't ge< rue wrong hero, I like StreefSghter 2. IVa 

K it more times ihon I oan rem&nber on my 
oAisr^i SNES Haw any Amigo gamer could 
expect the Amigo version to be os gK>od as ihe 
SNES version is beycad me |corefai! - Ed] OK, so 
it had fairly goud graphics, but there's wasn't 


much in the way of playability, 

Toam 1 7 haven't released as many games as 
U5 Gdd r bul they go for quality not quantity. So 
far dipv've managed A ien Breed, a classic ggunlfel 
runaround shoaKem-up, Project X, the Amiga's 
best sere- ing shoot- 'em-up by far, gnd Assassin, a 
realy amazing pfetfarm game which was knocked 
by many. Now then's Body Blows which Team 1 7 
promises will be the definitive beat- Wup on the 
Amiga. 

Also on the way is Super Frag, a cutesy humor- 
ous platformer which could well be one of the 
biggest games on the Armgg since Zbol. \H future 
is looking bright for Team 37. While other compa- 
nies eoniinve pumping out their bog standard 
games, Team 17 *eep on producing top quality 
arcade titles far the Amiga. This fat r*e smart and 
anyone who disagrees can step outside right now. 

Beal-’em-ips are not the eos tsl thing to write 
about. When you’ve seen one you've seen them 


Streetfighter 2? "Pah!" say Team !7 f

you can now choose Kossak Mike, Maria, Dug,

own options, so far instance you con change the 
time limit, decide how many rounds you wanl and 
fight character against character. 

Another option is (he tournament and ir's only 
far people with loads ond loads of Friends, This 
mode allows four or eight human players to take 
part in a massive Body Blow* knock-out tournament 
to compete far the prize of the champion's bolt. This 
will definitely cause actual fights if you don't gel ihe 
you want, 

In Streerfightev 2 there were quite a few moves, 
but jwf as many as there ore m Body 6faws. tad 1 
fighter con perfam 21 moves, ' 
so- important special moves, but these 
which fighter you want to be. 

You might hove five special moves if you play 
the part of Dug, ibut you'll only get two if you 
choose to be YihLf.

would soy lhat ifoe game would be incredibly bard

playing body Blow is so easy that even those who 
don't know whgr computers ane could play it. 

However, though it is easy to ploy. Body Blow 
will take q fab amount of lime to master. Players 
will ultimately gain a lot more satisfaction Irom the

Body Blows is the best Amigo beat- 'em’ up

could Fault them. Will Sale you a couple of 
seconds to play, hut a let longer to master 

The caniTol method is fluid and very easy to use 
t*>d it doesn't require gamers la use a combina- 
tion of joystick moves to set oF the speed moves. 
All you have to da U hold fa Fi e buhon down 
and release. This a a very addictive game, espe- 
cially in two-ployer mode because you just have to 


beat your male's head to the fbor once more, Of 
course you could always use the joystick instead. 
Liles mast bool- Wups Body Blows i* much better 
when you hove a few friends around end doesn r 
have ihul iame air gf excitement when you're sot

I coo t fault Body Blows unless of course you're 
not fond of violence, In whtdi cose you definitely 
won't want it Body Blows has oyerything ihul you

Hftovnky Safari Park, I don't think 




T he peer « 2022 ord ifs Chnshnas Eve. The 
worfd has been rareged for many years. by 
the Greenhouse Effect and is slowly dying. 
As aver the pcpulotfon have completely 
ignored the warnings given to them by sciolists,. and 
Earth's days are severely numbered unless something 
gets done pretty sharpish, 

5a scientists devised Gperaton Blind, an experi- 
ment designed la save us hom pgr untimely demise, 
"wo large nudeor devices hare been planted at the 
pales of the earth. These are set lo expfade, Growing 
up dirt, steam and other debris which will block out 
the rays and cool ibe world (mm}. 

But as 50 frequently happens, the scientists inisoal- 
aibte and far too much earth and steam is thrown 
up, The word is plunged into on inte r se nuclear win- 
ter, oil civil isaiian hreqks down ond the ground 
freezes. 

Centwies later ■here ore still some survivors, who 
live in cites and towns. The only form of transport am 
nwmnwths who hove re-evolved and huge trains 
which span the frozen wastes 

The Viking Union hold complete monopoly over 
the rai system - they are very dodgy organisation 
who tend to kill anyone or anything that stands in 
their way, 

MYTHICAL BODY 

Bociuse there is a massive- dbud and debris foyer 
in the Earth's atmosphere, the wn has become a 
mythical heavenly body. People who have read 
about il want Is see it ogo.n ond have set out to find 
mm about if. 

Of course the Viking Union is rwe hoa cWlfod 
□baa* this and so kills them c- 4 but the resistance 
who, for wont of a better word, are called The 
Ambvaients, hove stolen the Viking Union's biggest 
train,, the T ran^cfeo . . 

Because trains are the only thing that work any 
more, the currency has changed. Coal in two differ 
eni forms is now the way m which 
people trade. 


What have trains, global warming, and large nuclear 
explosions got In common? Read on,,. 


Ligmte is the base form of currency used for buy- 
ing goods and tradables. Anthracite o riche form 
which i$ used for miming the trains on. 

Just because you've got this massive train doesn't 
mean you haven't got a care in the world - them are 
plenty of things you should be worried about. 

Great hordes ol wolves roam the icy wasiei look- 
ing for trains, a bit I ike a timed meal for them realfy, 
anc gs yw con imagine- the Viking Unicnt aren't too 
chuffed at the fad that you have stolen their best 


Indeed, ibeir bottle trains are out on the rails after 
you Also when yog are going through underground 
tunnels you must watdh out for Mde Men, cannibals 
who hove adopted to living underground. 

To progress you must trade with the various towri 
and cities and build up the Tnanrardioa into a big- 
ger boost Ithon it drecidy i$ r ond you must put out 
your spies to find more about whal rea y happened 
erd what the rumoured Operation Sun is 

Tronsordko is controlled entirely by the mouse, 
dirking on icons around the screen, fre first screen 
is the engine room. This is where the soeed and gen- 
eral movement k can trolled from. You have to carry 
out all the usual tasks that ym would m a normal 
slaam, train like bui ding the fire, bu;ldiirg up steam 
and keeping he coal burrung, hut remember you 


only Korea limited cxnounf of Anthracite 
The other carriages contain the 
rest of your small bortd af me** and 
more importantly a scale mop of 
the entire area you can co^er with 
the Tnonrarctico. 

At first I thought the gameplay 
was a ifffo slow but lien ( discov- 


ered that the dock in the comer of the screen is to 
speed up the play - if you dick on it, it will moke 
everything in the game nm quicker including the 
train, so there's w hanging round.

At 206 mph this Mon*U-r i ft must.., 



...but it dfMsiTt stop kh tcutiimji last 



P sygnosis hove built up o real 
head of steam of late - their last 
half dozen releases have all 
been excellent, and I must admit 
that Gamer fea led that record was coni’ 
mg to an end when we learned they 
were dabbling in the motorbike busi- 
ness again* 

Thankfully though if% not another sim but a 
tradifonol racer - and moke no b ^ rinju f it, rfi 
Out be number one. 

Prime Mover wo* developer: by Danish boffin* 
interadivision, end if the prerelease hype fuelled 
by ihomsdve* end Psygnosfe f* to be bdieved, 
we're faced with the fastest bike gone ever. I J this 
a Hie cose then why the ritfe? 

Surety an exciting barnstorming speed king of 
p game should be rewarded with a decidedly 
more catchy name. I mean, I uersondly can't think 
of onj#iing suitable, but then that isn't my job b it? 

But net to worry - Prune Mover it is and Prime 
Mover ifa -going to stay, and beside*, it's how the 
game ploys which matters most So without farther 
ado. Id's investigate. 

Armed with your best fealhers and sporting 
yogi favourite taHco& f you are very courteously 
prodded with 12 tracks on which to race, erd any 
ane of these can be chosen al random when in 
another generously added feature - *be practice 
made, First though, a choice must be made os to 
which of ihe 12 defers you want to represent 
Now | dor*'l know whart it is with gome* at this 
wrt, bui whenever this kind of choice is offered., 
the medley array cf riders always seerr: to cpmpu se 
of on assortment of gertdicalty mutated, inebriated 


As a kind of apology for Red Zone, 
Psygnosis get fheir motors running once 
again to bring us another helping of 
two-wheeled action 



Arrows indicate where a

digress, ,, Choice of rider mode - personally pre- 
fer the woman with tho muscles and toe purple 
hair! - and \h off to the fake shop to select your 
machine from a choice of *ix, 

All the bike-s are quoted as having different 
weights, lop speed* and handling abilities, 
although trsfe Is »ihle advantage or disadvantage 
to detect when out an the track, Full r«e mode 


entails toking part in 12 races in 
various locution* ground ihe 
globe, with points far the winners 
and an overall accolade far the 

fast! Nol suf- 
ficiently so to be hailed autiighl 
os im dl-oonquering, fastest ever 
fake racer , but plenty fast enough 
to coax the odd v oah ’ c x ,v aoh v 
from onlookers. 

The race locations range from 
the deserts of Austro ia and the 
rainy shraeis of England ml Sweden to the cities 
0 J Mexico and the USA, -oikI the programmer* 
have done an excel ent job in maintaining the 
game's speed while managing to pack a Fair 
amount of detail onto the screens. 

Cne of the best features of tap gomes such as 
RV'F Honda, No Second Prize, and even Road 
Roih to some extent, wo* that the nvmbe r of com- 
Dshtor* cm the track mode the whole aiftor o real

manoeuvre went right, and it i* on this point where 
Prime Mower loses marks. Only seven campetitors 
take part in each race, and although races are 
reasonably short - around Four laps usually - rein- 
lively Jong period* of time can pass without 
enoounteringa soul. 

Admittedly, the speed of the passing landscape 
and looseness of control ensure thtf complete con- 
centration is a necessity far the most part, but it is 
the one-on-one ■competition m any race that raises 
excitement fey el ^ and Prime Mover could and 
should have contained more, although the chal- 
lenge h instantly doubted by selecting manual 
gears, 

A qukk menial calculation wiH con Firm the fact 
that there are a good number ol bike sims and 
racers already on the market, though the good 
ones can be counted on the fingers of one hepd, 
and innovative ones are rarer still. 

For example, it would be nice to hove a gen 1 
yine selection of tracks, including hill climbs, 
motorways and others, and a two- player split 
sawn option, if done property,, would really *ef a 
game apart. 

SVime Mover is undoubtedly a quality product, 
sure to provide race fans with another few months 
al entertainment, but Ft will take anchor release of 
this kind, including same of the feature* mentioned 
abawe, before I sit up and begin to drool.

wailing for for some time - quite a change of 
direction foe Grandslam who, it would 
seem, are making a real effort te break 
into the big league of late. 

The ship is a fairly slam 
dard affair - just your average inter- 
luctic cruisei with the usual blend of 


ads of destruction, and although the game, as o 
concept, represents nothing particularly new, the 
power-ups are well thought aul. 

i here are seven upgrades., all introduced 
proudly by a digitised voice proclaiming "trkmr 
gfo!' H '‘drone!'' and, uh, Viper*, among others. 
Once you ve collected a power-up, look out 
more of the same, as each PLI can itself be 
snbanced by amassing a coPection of identical 
pods, making for an awesome weapon. 

Such erwesomeness is a necessity, actually, as 
the game is far from an easy ride. Even on easy 
mwfe the baddies come flying thick and fast, and 


bable shapes, large guns and strange 
men in the engine room, 

You beam your voyage into mindless

Enemy sprites increase, as does the difficulty in 
destroying them, and towards the end of the game 
only a huge weapon will do if you ore to achieve 
any success in saving the earth, or whatever it is 
the manual tefis us we should do. 

Five levds - yep not many it it? Fortunately, 
al of hem are a decani length, and the shee r

E verybody knows how Ocean juit

Arnold Schwersenegger, Bruce Willis, Me) 
Gb&on, Kim Basinger ano more Have all had the 
pleasure of wimesi ng their pimBofled farms won- 
dering ormind an artificial world on our monitor 
screens, and all la varying degrees of success, 

Now Ocean are moving in □ ific^ l:y di^eneni 
direction, 


“What - leaving ihe licensing malorkey?" I hear 
you cry. 

Oh no. In fact nay, nay and hrice nay, as Dick 
Emery or someone like that used !o say, because 
they have m he* done just the apnosile. 

Instead of purchasing the rights of expfoilalion 
for o sing'e movie, they've taken a trip to 
Hollywood, parted with huge amounts of wango, 
and walked away widi the gome rights to all of 
Universal Studios’ monsters. 

Yes, monsters - you know, like Dracula, and 
Frankenstein, and his bride, and the Wolfrncm* nnd 
the Mummy and ihe Creature from the Black 
Lagoon [you mean Ben? - Ed) AH six nave sold 
thetf collective souls end app^r fln masse in this 
nostalgic isometric adventure. 

ihe story goes that Famous vampire hunter 
Professcv Von Helsing has d :eu , bequeathing his 
thankless job to grandson Ales 

The aforementioned ghoul es have lor.g since 
been captured and banished to another dimension 


Ocean own more dodgy licences than a 
cowboy taxi firm, and they're about to 
add some more. Or are they? 



JUu enters 
Hit ilun-gecms 
o# doom. 

WHHHtOfl., 


from where they cem infhcl m forther harm on 
two-bit Tinseltown script* nter? but m order for 
them I q remain thm a ceremony must be per- 
formed every so often - the Rile of the Bfoodtfar. 

What with the foneraS and el- ihough F Alex 
mils eg the number 39 bus to Other 
Dimensiansville to perform ihe cerwwfiy. and the 
monsters begin to enter our world through Von 
Hebing 1 ’* costfe. Not only that, but by some myv 


terious and unexplained circumstance, the 
B'oadslar has been broken into six pieces which 
are spread around the casNe. With grandpops 
dead, it's uo to you as Alex ha find the six pieces 
and return the monsters lo their limbo. 

Considering the limitation* of this type of 
game, the graphics ore very nice indeed. The 
Alex sprite is large and chunky, and the back- 
grounds, while not differing a great deal horn 
each other, are colourful amrf reasonably well 



detailed. 

Each Universal monster commands his or her 
(or own domain within ihe castle, and in each 
domain you will find - or at least you should 
unless you' re daft - one piece of the Bbcdstar 

Find the oil -important hit cmd you are in a 
good position to kick the beasly bad to where it 
come from, A good position, but not a green one, 
because each monster has to be confronted with a 
particular item before ihey can fin ally be 
vanquished, 

"he obvious example is Dracula, who will only 
be sJxbed by a crucifix. The Creature from the 
Block Lagoon lakes a harpoon and Wolfman a 
silver bullet and so on. 

An isometric perspective prevails, a* you con 
lei! from he screenshots, and the rooms d the 
mansion scroll smoothly throughout 

Apart from ihe obvious problem of avoiding 
the monsters long enough to enable you to per- 
form the ritual, HiK-re one pitfalls, ord booby traps 


‘Frankie, dm you remember me.,," Alex <j#ts uauvn to the new-lrafc Sister SMg* 



Is that Suggs out of m.i lines* with the sunglasses amf Hueirartk 



throughout ihe castle where it's easy to come a 
cropper, 

Minor monsters roam freely in all the levels: 
unlike the main characters! these con be killed, 
□ though if* o lough task since Alex doein t carry 
any weapons 

Ag you would expecl of o rich person, your 
grandfather didn't trust people with his troaures, 
and consequently kepi most of the rooms in his 
home locked. 

Therefore keys ploy on important role in the 
game, not only for access to rooms where the 
monsters- may kirk,, but also in enabling you to 
find treasure and mogic portions^ which provide 
you with temporary powers of ESP and 
iimndfcilily. 

Hidden platforms, huge remote spikes and a 
hosl of other nasty surprises are littered around 
t r» place; usafol Herat are the teleporters which 
transport you from one end of the castle la the 
other. 

A menu can be accessed from any point in the 
game,, giving detoifs of your potions,. Bloodster 
cavn 1, and ihe remaining strength of your 
adversaries. 

Universal Monsters is o forge enough gam*, 
ond ifs important to keep on your tees at all times 
for threats from oil 1 kinds of places, 

Due to ils size thowgh, there are occasions 
when little or nothing happens for minutes at a 
time, and tedium begins to creep m. 

This type af gam* w® populor about five 
years ago when Spectrums were still in demand, 
and Universal Monsters will not be looked bock 
upon as a gaming milestone. 

In all fairness thowgh., the programmers have 
worked ha-d at bringing the game up to date, 
and have succeeded to a point., Universal 
Monsters doesn't make my list of all-time favourite 
gomes - in foot it doesn'l receive a rrominotion - 
but its easy so gel into, easy to pfoy, and pro- 
vide* a real challenge for anyone prepared to 
teke a step bock in lime.

Conrad is studying the molecular density of individuals, and finds to his horror that 
many world leaders are in fact aliens planning to take over the world. When the ET‘s find 
out about him he is captured, escapes... and the game begins.

Beast Ball 

. M or is it Psycho Boll? Millennium haven 1 '! b&en abb to make up their minds yet as to 
which title best portrays the intrinsic manic violence of the game. Having seen it 1 might 
venture that "Thud! Squelch! Ho ho hot Aaargh my head! Decapitation festival! is an apt 
description if not a particularly memorable name, because this just about sums il up. 

Reminiscent of The Running Mon movie in terms of pfot, Bteast Ball is 0 futuristic Sport 
devised to satisfy the viol en urges of □ nation of psychos, 

American footbalbesque, it r s played by teams of genetically engineered mutants more 
interested in the maiming their opponents with the variety of weapons on the pitch than 
they ore in scoring gaols. 

And boy can they maim! In fact, you can if you wish ensure victory in the match by 
methodically murdering your opponents until none are left. It seems to work as well - 
Wimbledon are still in the Premier H ague, after dL 

Viewed from the side, the game play is astonishingly easy - passing, running and scar- 
ing ore basically h - and a full league system complete with promotion and demotion will 
give lasting appeal. 

Add to this the foil, large, colourful sprites and more than □ smattering of tongue-in- 
cheek violence, and we hove in the offing what may very well become a classic sports 
gome.

The Ancient Art of War in the Skies 

Consider the fife of the gome, and the fact tfiat iTs published by Microprose* arid a nol too 
unreasonable assumption would be tfiat ibis is a Right sim. But it's not - at least, not strictly 
sped ting, 

A A W S is a sfralegy /action-type affair, with the emphasis placed firmly on the strategy 
aspect^ arid has been doing very well thunk you in the PC market for a couple of 
months now. 

As the leader of a crack airforce, tbe objective is quite similar to mast flight $ims x in that 
an enemy land must be entered, their factories destroyed, airfields captured and the lender 
{arced to surrender, 

Many Microprwe releases in the pest hove relied on this type of scenorio r but from this 
paint on if s all a bit different as we concern ourselves with tbe actual planning behind each 
campaign and sortie. 

Over 40 campaigns - both fictional and historically correct (the red ones being taken 
from WWF| - are built into the gome, with a campaign editor and numerous training mis- 
sions, which seive to make A A W S more accessible than many other similar games. 

The basic id™ is to decide how best to implement the goad of # bays at your disposal in 
order to bring about the fall of the enemy, after first talcing a look at just how he is 
positioned; 

By targeting key areas of hostile territory such as power stations and bunkers, you are 
guaranteed some action, and it is here where you can if you wish jump into the cockpit and 
get involved in a dogfight. 

The action is more of the arcade kind though, as you view the lights from a removed per* 
spective. It's a reasonably small part of the game and a nice break. But A A W S is first and 
foremost a strategy encounter - a large one - and it's looking goad.

Arrival: May

James Pend 3: Operation Starfish 

Everyone knows about James Pond - ho'* a fish-like person along Ihe lines of Billy 
Thompson in Vix, only James doesn't Root in mid air an d make incredible point blank 
saves while surrounded by improbable and badly ^ drown characters spewing forth 
a barrage of bad language and sexism. But he is a fish, nonetheless. 

And what' a fish! Gone have the days when James would gasp far breath like a smoker 
up the Cairngorms al the mere sight of dry fond; apparently this placed far too many lim- 
its an the gameplay, and now James, m tombed g ills and all, is back to thwart the evil Dr 
Maybe once more |becouse he's done it before, see]. 

FISH chiefs suspect the Doctor is setting up a lab on Ihe moon offer a Space Shuttle 
disappears, and James is sen! there in a similar craft to check what's what. 

Operation Starfish is shaping up into one of Ihe largest platformers the Amigo has seen 
- iKs q 100 - stage run Y jump caper and sees James sporting a couple of new features. 

for starters he J s dressed in a funky RoboSuit 2, complete with gravity boots which 
d low him: to ding to and run along just about any surface he encounters. 

James can aha pidk up items and use them against the large enemy sprites, and far

colours, gome stxe and speed of the sprite himself fno boring references to a certain lap

ome time ago I was asked the following ques- 
tion: If AEexx has an Lpperi 3 function 10 convert 
siring to uppercase, how conic it doesrit have a 


Loweit ) function to convert them to lowercase? 

A good question - after all. since ARexx is used so 
much for formatting and DOS interfacing, you'd think such 
a function would Ixr absolutely essential.. 

Even a trivial task such as convening all the filenames in 


a directory for neatness's sake would use it. and there are 


many other more serious uses. 

As a matter of fact, ARexx dues have a simple equivalent 
to the Lowell) function, hui it is hidden. So well hidden, in 


fact, that it is only obvious once you've had^ome experi- 
ence with AResx, Now, concealed Features do not make 
for happy programming, so let s sec bow it works. 

The only thing you wilt need is a table of Ascii values, 
and you can easily generate one using [he ARexx code 
below lvalues less than 32 are control codes that do not 


concern us for now). Type the program below, Lind save it 
in RAH; as ASCI!_TABLE.rexx. You can ger a prinirntt by 
typing rx >prt: R. W ASCn_ta b! e ai the kbell,

END 


To convert to lowercase we will use ARexx s bitwise 
operators, which we have encountered from time to time, 
notably in the Nov. '92 issue. 

I assume that you already know what bitwise operations 
are, but even if you don’t, you can work it out from the 
examples In a nutshell, bitwise operations convert strings 



For some time there was a very noticeable absence in 
the area nf ARexx support utilities there was no easy- 
to-use graphic pmgrmmning utility that worked proper- 
ly under Workbendi 2.0, 

Thi'i was quite discouraging, especblb to all the new 
Ai0!'i+ A6(J0 owners who would have liked to some 
ARexx graphics programming. 

Sure, there are some excellent tools available like 
Rxgen. library and APIGJlhrary, but they required a fair 
grasp of the \iruga O/S programming in general, and 
Intuition In particular 

The nice and simple libraries (like RxJmuLltbran 
and RexxAiplJb.library), which made it easy for anyone 
ro open windows and put graphics on the screen. !iad 
strong disagreements w ith Workbench 2,0. They 
worked fine with 1,3, but most 1.3 users don't have 
ARexx. 

However all that should now change! browsing 
through CompuServe the other day I found the latest 
(release 3.0) version of RexxArpljbJibraty, now fully 
compatible with Work!>ench 2.0, 

RexstArpOh.Kbiary is not the easiest library to use - 
Kx^tnluLlibraiy holds that position - but a is still vm 
easy T . 

It will allow you to do most basic graphical opera 
lions from ARexx; as well as use the system menus, 
requesters, gadgets and so on. Wherever possible il will 
use Workbench 2M features (eg the tile and font- 
requesters), .md the public screens. 

I ’haven't had time to test it fully vet. but all the new 
features and Improvements look excellent, [i is interest- 
ing in note that this software is developed under l> 
Government funding at the Stanford Linear Accelerator 
I am sure we will lx- looking at it extensively in the 
future. 


of characters to their binary representation, and fterEonu 
logical operations on diem in this form 

The basic bitwise ope radons are the logical AND - 
BITANQ( ), the logical OR - B1TORO and the logical 
exclusive 0R (ie either/or) - R1TXORO. ARexx also offers 
various other functions for setting and testing individual 
Sues, which we will not look at this time. 

Let s look lh an example. The Ascii value for the upper- 
case character A is decimal 6>, or hex il, or binary' 
OltKJOOOl. Similarly IS is 6u. C is 67, and so on. Lowercase a 
Is 97, b l-. 9B, and so on. Consider the two strings a be and 
CBA- 


il = 'aiu 11 ; Cl 1DOOD1 01 1D0C10 flltQDDII 
si = ‘CBr = OT0MOH 01D0001D 31000001 

BITM PM, 5?) = QIDOBDai OtODOOlO D10DMR1 \t m 
BiT 0 R(ri,i 2 ) ^ OIIDMli DltOODIO tllCMH it ihc 
= mmm ooioopoo oqimio i.a/ h 

Notice tlus^ the difference between tile uppercase and lower- 
Cijse value of the characters is 32, ie hex 20, or binary 
00100000. Ibis means that uppercase and i owe reuse diflcF by 
only one hit. and if we set this bit in an uppercase character 
we will convert ic to lowercu.se! You probably iilscj noticed 



that the Ascii character for hex 20 is the blank spu e. 

To set any bits in a character we must BiTORl) the 
atier with rhe bits we want set. Try this; 

j 

rs 'say BITfll( J aB G V ') I* i^r seatts *; 

the above is equivalent ro: 

011OD0D1 DtflDOQlO DO1DCDO0 OlCDOlPO 
OR 00103000 OD1DOCDQ OStODDOD QDTDDDQD 


fllicni OtlDDDlO 0 D 1 QD 0 QO OllOOlOO 

Ah you can space and lowert ascr cluraciers are unaf- 
fected by the OR operation, while uppercase* get convert- 
ed. 

We can in fact simplify the process even more. The 
general format for the bitwise functions in 
HITFYNG string l.stringi.pad 3. Hie shorter string is padded 
with the optional argument "pad*. If we specify a zero 
length "string2", and a fiad of is space, then w r e do not have 
to know the length of “.si ring T beforehand: 

% 

rx "sjy enORCCcmrt aLL tHUV',' ') 

And this can be made even simpler - "sfringT and "pud" 
are optional arguments. If they are not specified they 
default in the value of a blank space. In our case thus is 
extremely convenient, as Vic can dispense with All the 
optional parameters. 

rx H say Bl fORCCtAATn aLL tHaS 1 > 


Yes. to Loweri string) all you have to do is Put ori string)! 
That’s alt there is to it. I trust the explanation makes it a bit 
less of a mystery than it was &i die outset. 

Interestingly enough, it is not possible to use a similar 





technique to convert lowercase to upper. The function 
B ITANIK strin g ' D K~x) will convert the charatieix. Imt will lose 
the blanks, This is due to the structure of the Ascii table. 

\ will leave it as an exercise for you to why this is so, Hmt: 
'DFx is the bitwise inverse of r 2ffx ) ie T1011 1, 1 lb. The binary 
inverse nf j ny character is obtained by XGRing with a mask that 
has all the bits set. eg: 

BlTWR( p MlOO»% B tni1llVh) i, 

ARexx makes extensive use of uppercase, and therefore has built- 
in supfvjrt for uppercase conversion.

Over the next few issues we jre # 'ing to lie looking 
at interfacing with ARexx Before We even start, let 
me say that this can mean a whole tot ot different 
things - we will be looking at some of the main ones. 

Perhaps the only common ground between them is 
that they involve more than me prenress, that is they 
link more than one task or program together. Here Is 
a brief summary of the subjects involv ed:

or Languages tiias don't support ARexx. 

If there is sufficient interest, I will also cover the 
basic principles of adding an ARexx interface cn C; 
however this is an advanced subject and [ will not

start it If there Ls ru demand- 1L there is j particular 
ARexx Interface that you would like to see reviewed, 
nr any ARexx software related subject, fed free to 
write to me c/ti 'ARexx Feedback, Amiga Computing", 

if. Hardware 

1 still Find prevalent the miser .inception that ARexx is- 
a special language for controlling hardware attached 
eo the Amiga. There is no such tiling of course - any 
language that can write to memory locations or regis- 
ters can control hardware. 

ARexx gor this repuialton because it is used as the 
control language by a lot of video-related equipment, 
and for a large class of users the Amiga is synony- 
mous with video. 

However the reason ARexx was chosen was the 
superb way it fits in with the system multitasking. 
The level of control provided is so good it is almost 
silly. Can you imagine controlling your video camera 
from within your wordprocessor? 

Essentially, any device that can lie booked 10 the 
Amiga's [Mnls can be controlled by an ARexx script, 
Tiie serial port is most likely to he used in communi- 
cations-related work, whereas the parallel port is 
more likely to be used lor remote control devices 
such as door-openers, warning systems, robots and 


the like 1 he beauty of ARexx is that each port signal 
can have its own sc ript if need fx\ and can easily be 
added or removed from the system. A central script 
can then co-ordinate the whole operation. 

This is a significant advantage over a non-multi- 
tasking system,, where the complete control program 
would have to he altered to .accommodate any 
changes. 

Furthermore* all this cars be happening in rhe back- 
ground while you continue with your regular use of 
rhe machine. 1 hope to lx.* looking at some interest- 
ing ARexx -hardware projects soon. 

Finally, if Is interesting to not^iiiat all the good 
communication programs and terminals have exten- 
sive ARexx support ARexx will allow you to set up 
you i machine to respond to any event, such as a 
phone link, so that you can operate it remotely. I 
have seen more than one BBS system written in 
ARexx, even if they were Fairly basic. 

With clever use of an ARexx -compatible terminal 
i such as VLT or VTKIQ) you can even run more than 
one computer from your keyboard, each one w ith its 
own CL1 window, 

And they do not even have to be Amiga* - any 
machines tan be linked like this, with an ARexx 
script controlling their communications.

A 


s regular readers of Insight may remember, RocTecs 
latest creation lus already made its debut within the 
glassy folds of AC However, due in the limbed space 
available in the average Insight column only the basics of setting- 
up and the additional hardware vital for effective use have made it 


into print. 

Before we ] no yc onto the imagery axailablc, a quick recap of 
the necessary kit might be wise. Firstly, a standalone composite 
genlock is essential and although RncTec recommend their own 
unit almost any genlock ^ ill do the jnb, 

In addition, the genlock lighting is equally important and in 
order to get anything approaching decent results a plentiful sup- 
ply of lights including at least one back light plus an additional 
tw in array of frontal floods is a sensible setu p. 

Apart from the obvious addition of a camcorder and a selection 
of suitable cabling, that’s about ft on the kit front. Like most video- 
graphic hardware, RocKey doesn't need any specific software to 
Operate so lifter connecting up the only filing left is to boot-up 
with your favourite paint package and start experimenting. 

Although a basic weatherman effect is likely to be your primary 
reason for investing in a chroma-keye, it must be stressed that 
there's a Jot more to RocKey than this one effect. As you am see 
from file selection of images, a little imagination can produce a 
bucketful of special effects. 

Sol surprisingly I've opened the Pandora's box of RocKey FXs 
with our old favourite, the weathemnan chroma key (Example 1) 
Although I airly impressive as a static, the effect is enhanced ten- 
fold by a little animation, which in this particular case placed 
yours Emily on a pulsating fractal backdrop. 

As you may have already' spotted, a dose inspection reveals the 
image isn t exactly perfect due 10 the fairly prominent blue key- 
line on file left of lhe image Even with lhe best possible set-up 
tills edging effect is very difficult to eradicate completely. 

This alone is perhaps file best indication as to Ret Key's place 
in the market. 

For the professional broadcast user such a fault simply couldn't 
be tolerated and as a result RocKey abs fells firmly into the semi- 
pro bracket. 

The next image (Example ID, allhough perhaps not an every- 
day option, still tends itself to suitably wacky applications very 
well -again particularly impressive when animated. Although rad- 
ically different to the weatherman, in fact fixe [nmsidon between 
fixe two is a simple cute. 

All that’s really happened i- a basic inversion, with file fore- 
ground of the Amiga signal replacing the foreground of lhe keyed 
video signal. Simple Nit effective. 

Next up (Example HI) comes a much more complex combina- 
tion of signals which build to ti urn one variant of RocKey s range 
of sandwich effects. OK. here* "lie in-a-nutshdl explanation of 
wl tit's happening, As you can see. the foreground video lias once 



again been eradicated by the foreground 
Amiga graphics. However colour zero of the 
graphics has been placed as the first image 
layer, thus providing a window for the 
graphics that have teen key inverted on the 
foreground video while the background key 
signal itself remains dear. 

The overall effect is a keyed silhouette 
w hich picks up on foreground Amiga graph- 
ics while apparently sliding between a sand- 
wich of the key itself and colour zero. OK, I 
know that sound uemfusing but it’s very easy 
to achieve in practice - htmest! 

As you've probably guessed, the next 
image (Example IV") is yet another sandwich 
! nil in this case the foreground video is back 
as a weatherman wbfle colour zero remains 
as before. However the foreground Amiga 
graphics haw taken on file third background 
Layer which in effect produces file familiar 
mradxerman but this time through definable 

RocKey 
revisited 




window* Finally we arrive at my personal favourite which pro- 
vides a perfect example ot what a little expenmeniatirjn and role 
bending can produce. In this example inaccurate keying actually

OWING TO PROPOSED LECI ELATION PHI<E$ MAT INCREASE WITHOUT NOTICE 














PROGRAMMING 


liLyl" (niuiiiufi wirsduws coa^rimuiikrace with incoming 
input events via two separate message ports - a 
WindowFort tor window events (is demons tinted last 
month) unri a UserFoit for IDCMP events. 

Each IDCMP Hag in the New Window data structure repre- 
sents an event dial a program could hr informed about, by a 
message which includes the ev ent's class and code. 

The main feature of an Intuition program is usually a polling 
loop, which waits for an event to occur and interprets the asso- 
ciated message. 

The demonstration program looks at four event classes - the 
cltHing of die window, the pressing of a key, the pressing of a 
mouse laitinn, and the passage of Time. 

The main polling loop of the demonstration program 
processes each signal in the UserFort; if a message has not 
been received, a background activity can take place. If a mes- 
sage has been received, tile program must store the message 
class, and its code, in its uwn variables. 

The program can then reply to the messag-.. 1 . and release the 
memory for the nexl Incoming message. Each class of event can 
trigger a different activity. The % INDOWCLOSE event class trig- 
gers the setting of a flag to inform the program to break nut of 


Intuitive 


RAWKEY event will have key code Ox-lS, 
Other KAftU'V events result in a line of 
text in the background window; 

Intuition has its own interval timer. An 
INTUITICKS event occurs about three 
times a second - counting these events 
loii Id measure the passage of time 
between other activities. 

Competition 

There must be many readers who can 
write a better screen saver program than 
the one featured below, the program- 
ming page is running a competition to 
find die best screen saver written by an 
AC reader. 

The winning program must lx. j economi- 


communication 


the polling loop and continue with the rest of the processing. 

The MOUSEBLTTON5 event class occurs when a mouse but- 
ton is pressed. The demonstration program just registers the 
event, displays some text in the DOS window and continues 
prcK'esstng. 

Keyboard events occur w hen a key is pressed; there are two 
classes. VAN1LLAKKY and RAWKEY. For a VAN1LLAKEY event, 
the code returned in the message IS the Ascii value of [lie key 
dial has been pressed For a RAWKEY event die internal key 
code would be given. 

The program tan detect when the Escape key is pressed, the 


l;'j! will i disk space, so dial it car lx: published on ihe CoverfMsk. 
The screen saver should be a short standalone executable pro- 
gram, written in any computer language for the Amiga, 

The winning program will be jnduded on the next available 
Coverfhsk, and the author's name will l>e published in the mag- 
azine. Ait author who sends in the most tasteful, or the most 
original, or the most irritating, screen saver will also Ik- “men- 
tioned in dispatches 11 . 

Please send entries, on disk, to me via Amiga Computing by 
May 31 1993, and watch nut for results at later date. If you want 
me to return your disks, Indude a stamped addressed envelope. 


Margaret Stanger 
takes a look at 
Intuition window 
events for new C 
programmers, and 
presents a screen 
saver program 


Save our screens! 


When the same bright, non-moving image is 
regularly displayed for any length of lime 
(months or years), it could damage the moni- 
tor screen to some extent. 

Screen saver programs have been created 
to give the screen a rest from displaying Ihe 
current window contents, il the window has 
no input events for any length of time. 

The demonstration program uses some 
commands from the Amiga Graphics library 
to change the screen background colour, plot 
a few stars, and clear the screen. 

The WniePixelO command plots a point in 
the foreground colour at ihe chosen position 
in the window's RastPort, the SetHastfl com- 
mand fills the whole window with the given 
logical colour, 

The address of the RastPort can be 
obtained irom the Window structure. The 
command SetRG04() will change a logical 


colour in the screen's ViewPort to new red, 
green and blue values, The ViewPort address 
can be obtained from the Scren structure or 
from Ihe ViewPortAddressQ command, 

To make sure that Ihe program does nol 
always plot the stars in the same place, and 
wear out the same bit of screen, the star posi- 
tions must be random. 

Fortunately the C library has a pseudo-ran- 
dom number generator that produces ran- 
dom-«sh numbers. 

The C library routine randQ returns pseu- 
do-random numbers in a range between zero 
and the maximum long integer value. The 
routine does some arithmetic on the last num- 
ber it generated, and returns a new number lo 
the calling program. 

The new number is Ihe basis or seed when 
the routine is next called. When rand() is 
called for the first time, the seed has the 


value 1. To avoid Ihe same sequence ot ran- 
dom numbers each time the program is run, 
tie C srandi) command can be used lo seed 
the random number. The input to srand() is 
quite often the number of seconds or micro 
seconds from Ihe system qtock. 

When ihe main window is ignored, the 
screen slides down, revealing the previous 
window. A borderless window wilh a black 
background is opened, and slides up into 
place. Random stars are plotted on the 
screen - after a short time Ihe screen is 
cleared and the foreground colour changes 
for the next batch of stars. 

A new star is plotted for each 3NTUIT1CK 
even!, but they could have been produced as 
a background activity, II a key or mouse 
button is pressed, the second window is 
instantly closed , and the main program 
continues

CIS I can download it to my computer, 
which is very handy for getting the latest 
Fish Disks. There is one Internet FTP sire 
called wtiarchive.wusll.edu which lias a 
pile of Amiga software so big ji would 
choke a killer whale.. 

There s even a site called 
uxl.cso.uiuc.edu which allows you lo 
download individual files hom Fish disks,

not the whole disk, this can save you a lot 
of time and money.

So anyway, I'm totally besotted, and 1 
can't wail to get hack on to do some more 
exploring. All this Internetting does come 
with a public wealth warning, though, 
spending up to :m hour exploring the vast 
untrammelled wastes of the Internet can

andom numbers can be very useful things to harness 
if your games are a hit more than shooL-’em-ups 
What if you're an adventure game huff, and you 
need to create worlds and people which even you don'i know 
about? 


The trouble with writing games is that you get very little 
pleasure yourself from playing them, unless the experience can 
be randomised in some way, so that you enpny it as much as 
tht next man. " 

If a game like F.lite. for example, was the same each time it 
wax played, the writers of the game would lie able to play and 
finish it pretty much in an hour or tw o. As it is (he L'in imi- 
stances change each rime the game is run, so anyone can play 
and have the same chance of winning. 

Similarly, tn any kind of simulation game, unless there is a 
random element, you won't have any kind of chance in the 
game, and the product ol such a venture would be a very bor- 
ing simulation which ran along similar lines every time it was 
played. 

So this month let’s look at ways of making the initial circum- 
stances of your simulation and role-playing games as different 
as possible. 

The standard random number generator in Amos is the 
ENDOO statement. ThLs means dial a number, usually an inte- 
gen is created within she range or between 0 and X. Random 
number sequences are seeded at the start by using: 


hrsdaiiie Tiier 

which feeds the randomised numbers with a seed value equal 
to the value Of the system variable TIMER. Timer clocks the 
elapsed time that the computer has been on, and so you can 
reset it with: 


AMOS 


Ascii code of the letter „ 

This program shows you all the Ascii 
codes from 0 to 255: 

For A-C Id 255 
Print ChrHJtlj* 

Wait I 
Hnt A 

Obviously feed the CHRS command with 
a random number and you’re into it Hue 
the letters don't start until CHR$(65), 
which is capital "A", Easy, just add 65 to 
she random number within the CHR 
brackets, and you're away. 

Live 




T 1 1 r =Q 

and then anything after that ( if divided by SO) can lie timed in 
seconds, deeding random numbers with Timer ensures that 
each time the random number is created it is different. 
Otherwise your random numbers ^tand li chance of I icing non- 
random. 

Random numl>ers are needed in a whole load of game types 
from card games to full-blown graphic adventures. You use the 
standard formal, bur obviously you have to be creative and 
adapt the amount or range of numbers to suit the 
circumstances. 

Probability comes into it a lot and in a dice game for exam- 
ple you can make it just totally random, but pairs of dice are 
weighted (in a probability sense) towards producing seven, so 

you have to simulate that loo if you want a true simulation. So 
■ * 

die origin;] I idea is something like this: 

1 Os 

' 3=!rrt(?2 J 

Inc A 

Ppirtit 

Loflp 

but in this there is an equal chance of getting a seven as get- 
ting, say, 12 or one. To trim out the chances of getting numbers 
which are too high or low you can add a hit of weighting to it 
like this; 

D« 

D*ind( 5 )UtatfSH 

Int K 

Print 

LOflp 

which cluster* the numbers produced li round the seven. Roll 
playing games which use dice can be easily converted to Amos 
using (his technique. 

Random numbers are one thing, hut what about random 
letters? One of the quickest and dirtiest ways of cranking 
out random text is using the CHR$(x) where x - the 


Try rills for size: 

*ap*r D i C L 3 0 
h 

Print ChrSHiMi(25)t4S)r p ; 

Halt l 
Leap 

To get all lower case letters, you simply have to change the 
numlTer 65 to 97 - the Ascii code for lower ease V. 

You can combine this knowledge into the following silly, 
but sometimes funny, program which randomly creates charac- 
ter name- tor sci-fi role playing games:

Phil South proves 
that not only can 
you create 
random numbers, 
hut also people 
and planets for 
your games 


There's much more to random numbers than just pure ran- 
domness, and with a little thought you can simulate any natu- 
rally occurring phenomenon. Adding a litiie bit of fractal maths 
here and you !uve the option of adding graphics to these ran- 
dom events and allow you to produce some startling graphic 
effects, which I'll he going into a bit more next month.

T 


he release of PageSertier3 has opened up the world 
of forth colour and mono professional desktop pub- 
lishing to the Amiga user on a tight budget 
Pageffelter II, For its age and for the price, wj- j pretty giw nl 
mono DTP package, but this new version has seen many 
advances, not all of them as obvious js tin- abilm u* i ; s*r 
colour, 


Tills month I'm going to discuss some of the may* changes 
lo rhe program that might he causing both new users and 
upgrades some sleepless nights. 

Lets get fbe hidden change imi of tire ■way hr-' - the wa\ 
Pag.eSetc.sfr5 handles Compugniphk: typefaces. 

For each Compugniphic typeface, PageSetter 11 req irvd 
three files to (>e present In the CGFonts: logical dev .« * r n 
the CGFonts floppy disk - typeface, lib, type face .metric and 
typeface, ate. 

The program recognised what typefaces were available ^im- 
ply by reading the contents of CGFonts: upon kiadmg. 

PageSetter3 no longer requires die typdhcc.aic file, hut n> w 
needs a rypefao&dart tile. It recognises what type feces aitr i\ .1 
able by means of 3 file called if.fnt, which, in effect, is a list nf 
available typefaces. The old CG Cache: device is no longer 
needed, and neither is Ibe CGT file, 

With PageSetter II you added a typeface to the system sampK 
by copying the three required fifes into CGFonts: - Page Setter ; 1 
requires two of those files to be present tall except the .ju 
file), plus a .dal hie, and the if.fnt file lias to be updated each 
lime a typeface is added 

Tlie program that maintains the if.fnt file is called CGJJpdne 
and \s on Disk 2. When you run this prog-ram, it reaefc the con- 
tents of CGFonts: - which could he an assigned directory or 
simply a disk of that name - and then updates the If.fnt file 10 
reflect the typstaces n Fouivd in CGFonts:. The if.fnt. file gets 
saved to CGFonts:, in w ith the typefaces. 

So ex- PageSetter LJ users will need to delete from their 
CGFonts disks for CGFonts device) the CGT fife* any CGCache 
directories, all the *? jic files , and then run OGjJpdaie once 
for every CGFonts d isk yi w hn e 

Files needed 


If you don’t have .dat Bie% 1 r y or typefaces, you won't lx: 
able to use them; these shimM have o atte with the typefaces 
when you bought them. 

There arc several other ttk-s rh.lt need to be on each 
CGFonts floppy - the #?.chaniiia fib;- (used for Post Script print- 
ing) and the if.ss file that you'll find on D14; 3 in the CGFonts 
drawer 

FageSerter3 also maintain^ a lilt in the S directory called 
fondjst.ps that lh an Ascii list of available typefaces so ihat it 
doesn't have to keep reading the 1 < if mu- directory every time 
it bis to put up the Typeface requester, if this fife isn't iIkmv. 
the Typefaop requester will lx crrifHv 
Despite the impression given by Lhc FloppyJ>rive_SciUp 
program on Disk 1, using the ‘Update your current CGFonts 
disk" option isn't guod enough 10 get your old PageSetter 0 
CGFonts disks wtuking with FagcScaer3 - all it does is copy an 
updated if.ss file [a CGFonts:, 11 doesn't create Lhc necessary 
if.fnt file; 10 do this you need to run CGjp&ire 
The Lf.ss file K in case you were wondering, is a kind of char- 
acter look-up table rhal tells PageSctterJ the characters that are 
available in standard Com pu graphic typefaers 
Apart from colour, the other new p^fvious additions are the 
Article Editor (AE) and the Graphics EdknriGrl 1 
When using the hotlinks from Pa gc Se n e rj to these separate 
programs, tlie editors arr muluusked fegeSenerJ is siill mm 
ning. So if you haven’t got much memory, chances are the 


Easier fonts 

The FnmManager program pruvaJcd. which converts 
PostScript Type l Typefaces to Ompugraphit format, automat- 
ically updates t he if Jnf file after every conversion^ so there’s 
no need to run CG_1 pda re a her using FdrttMamgvr. 


PUBLISHING 


hot! Inks won’t work or the machine will 
suddenly crash. 

PageSeiterJ alone requires 1.5Mb of 
RAM, and I've found that 2Mb is not 
enough to successfully multitask with GrE. 
With 2 Mb (he hot! Ink to AE jim about 
works,, but to use both hotJinks comfort 
-Lbty 3Mb is a more sensible minimum, 

A feature of GrE is that it was designed 
to he used with screen-steud graphics, .so 
1 1 your picture is. wider or higher than a 
standard .Amiga screen size fa tall scanned 
image for example), GrF may import it 





* h 11 s he won't he able to get at any areas off to the right or 
below she bottom of the display, and when you send it back 
("- I 3 agebetter3 these areas may well he corrupted, So its 
be^r 1 1 ■ uh j GrE only for simple screen-sized tor smaller) 
graphics 

AE has a spelling checker that can only be used if you have 
enough memory into which it can copy its dictionary, Again, if 
memory 2 - tight ^pell-checking in AE may fail and/or the 
machine may crash. 

Even the apparently simple job of transferring text from 
PageSetter3 to AE and kick again requires memoty, so IFs theo- 
retically pn^bfe to ^-nd some text to AE t add tons more text, 
and then nut Ik- a tile to send it back to FageSeitetf. 

■■■'v hinge not ai PageSetter3 or AE - if more memory is 
required, more memory is required.

need we say more? 


Probably the finest Font Collection in the U.K. 








after your 


F like me your CDTV softwartr cditxihm gnaw* every 
month, yoLE'll have quite j pile of discs now, As the aver 
age price of CEfrV dries starts at mound £19- 4 J9, you'll have 
a fdiHy expensive pile? 

Comrary to popular belief however, CDs, laser discs Lind 
CDTV discs are not invulnerable. Early reports on CD techoolu^ 
stated [hat CDs were almost bullet-proof, capable of sustaining 
drops, scratches and lcj stains. 

E even reraem xT nne article saying discs could he broken and 
glued (sick together! Now we know of onurse that this wasn't 
Strictly true. 

CPs can be easily damaged and your once proud CDTV soft- 
ware collection can easily become nothing more than a pile of 
replacement beer mats. 

As the saying goes however, every cloud has a silver lining. ]n 
this ease, it i.s that Cf>s are more resilient than most other foetus 
rtf storage media. You need have no fears about touching the 
surface of discs or handling them. 

So what cail you do w Llll [hem, and IS there any way to recov- 
er your faulty discs? Well to start with,, treat them with respect 

Don't love idem lying amund outsit. Ee thetr casing or caddy, 
don’t clean them with anything corrosive. You should also watch 


MULTIMEDIA 


out for touching them when wearing jew- 
ellery, such as rings, that might catch them 

[f you do appear lu lx- having problems, 
all is nut lost. A quick clean often yields 
marvellous results, with previously mmi pi- 
ed data returning to normal and audio 
soundtracks that jumped and repeated play- 
ing as normal. 

Never, ever, move the cleaner tn a circu- 
lar fashion amund the disk. Unlike vinyl 
IPs. you should move across the surface 
from ibe centre to the outside or vice versa. 

But wh.il can you do to repair your discs? 
Most CDTV instruction manuals make IMe 1 
if any reference. 10 inaimairimg your discs. 
And none of them, at least none dial I've 
come across anyway, give any solutions to 
re'itiJytng poreniuil problems. Strange effects 


Looking 


Where the grass is green 

Firstly, and of particular interest to a great many people, 
the AVM card, which could do lor the CDTV what bungee 
lumping does for And rex toilet rolls. 

For those who don't know, the AVM card takes the stan- 
dard CDTV colour palette and knocks it for six. Straight over 
the fence m fact, to where ihe grass is greener. 

Much much greener, because with an AVM card fitted 
you’ve got several million colours to play with instead the 
usual 4.095; you can now see the grass in God knows how 
many shades! Basically the AVM card increases the avail- 
able colour palette and the number of colours that the 
CDTV can display at once. 

Even bolter, it can do this noi just with still pictures but 
also CDXL Irames, Although full motion colour feature films 
are still a way off, Ihe AVM card takes the CDTV one giant 
step in tie right direction. 

What’s even better is that Commodore are actually work- 
ing to promote this product. One small step for CDTV, one 
giant step for Commodore? 

Another product bobbing around on the horizon is a new 
SCSI interface. With the aid of this produel you'll be able to 
plug in hard drives to the CDTV and have a high capacity 
writes ble storage medium. 

While this has lew obvious benefits to most users, with 
the aid of the "multi media' CDTV kit (a keyboard/mouse) it 
makes the CDTV an interesting potential developer system. 

Through the well shaken hands of a distributor this prod- 
uct should make it to a lot of developers. The result will, 
hopefully, be a tot more CDTV software? 


in a program, faulty disks and corrupted graphics are all symptoms 
of din, scratches, marks, scuff* or possibly manufacturer failing*. 

Such glitdttrs on [Ik: surface of (he disc cause die laser to miss- 
track. Tills in lum results in the wrung data being read. For normal 
audio CDs it was Ixid enough with tracks repeating, skipping and 
jumping. 

Strangely, scratches that run across lie from centre to rim) The 
disc can often go undetected and have no effect on the data. Marks 
more likely to cause problems are scratches around disc or those 
rake the shine off the plastic - the outer coating of CDs helps con- 
centrate die laser beam. 

Many problems can be cured .simply by Liking a damp clolb 
with a smudge of washing up liquid and wiping the disc. Ibis w ill 
do wonder* in many t irciim stances, removing fingerprints and 
smears that previously caused the laser to 4; ip. 

For more serious problems, such ax foreign substances stuck to 
the surface. Like a weak but abrasive cleaner and apply in small 
quantities. Typical cleaning agents include toothpaste and Brasso, 

But only use such agents when all else In* failed. These are alter 
all abrasive substances and not recomux-nded for cleaning delicate

If all is lost and your CD simply

Increasingly developers are jumping on tSe back of COTV and 
Amiga CD ROM bandwagon. While writing this column I heard 
of no less than five CDTV hardware releases. All were slated 
for release “soon" - more Information on some of ihese later, 

Meanwhile, multi media and CDTV software announcements 
continue. More games and authoring titles appear almost 
weekly. 

Philips CD-I is progressing, but not as quickly as CDTV. Will 
1993 be the year when the Amiga CO- ROM formal and CDTV 
take off? The answer lies here and in 4Cs news pages over 
the coming months.

undrew of thousands of Amiga users through- 
out Britain am in the position of having bought a 
machine Iron a mail order house and most of their 
software either from the same source or from one of the 


many software supermarkets in our larger town centres. 

They might never have wandered into one of the focal 
dealerships which were the backbone of the early com- 
puter boom, and would therefore have missed the plea- 
sure of shopping in these havens of friendly personal! 
service. 

We refer to them as high street dealers, but in reality 
they are almost always found either just outside the main 
shopping area or hidden away on a back street, their pres- 
ence betrayed only by a small ad in the local paper and a 
narrow shop front crammed with as many monitor 
screens and games promo posters as possible. 

The legend above the door will almost always read 
something like "Computer Cabin", and the proprietor will 
usually took like the twin brother of Kev who funs the sci- 
11 shop on the next street. 

Inside, the smell of pipe smoke from the bearded bloke 
in the back mingles with the acrid tang of the soldering 
iron he's using to breath a little more life into a veteran 
Commodore 64, and the softly muted sounds of a promo- 
tional games video running over and over on a monitor 
above the counter forms a backdrop to the intense con- 
versation a prospective customer is having with the sec- 
ond shop assistant. 

The customer wants la buy a hard drive for his Amiga 
and he's not convinced that the one on display is worth 
the asking price. 

It is. the assistant admits, £50 more expensive than the 
same model m the magazine ad being waved about by 
the reluctant punter, but goes on to say that if the drive 
isn't up to scratch or fails during warranty, he can come 
back to the shop for an instant replacement 

In fact, If sir would like to bring his A50Q Plus down to 
the shop on Monday, the assistant would be happy to 
prep, format, and install the hard drive, 

Cher at the counter, Kev"s twin brother is trying lo sell 
a joystick to a young punter who just can't make up her 
mind- 


Should she go for the simple, old-fashioned stick cost- 
ing only £9.95 or splash on the 07.95 blaster master

Local dealers are a breed 
threatened by recession and mail 
order competition, but are still 
the best place to go for service 

and advice 


with LCD display and lour Fire buttons? To solve the 
Conundrum, the shop manager decides to load up a 
game on the demonstration Amiga and give Miss 
Undecided a hands-on test. 

Just then, a regular comes in. "How are you Bill? 
Busy?' 1 Bill (Kev's twin brother, for it is he) looks around 
at the empty shop and shrugs, "Bit quiet today, mate." 

Fred the regular has dropped in to take advantage of 
Bill's £5 Swap Shop, a scheme whereby customers can 
bring in old games and swap them for another at a 
charge of only a fiver. This makes Bill a few quid without 
hitting sales of new games. 

Lunchtime comes and the shop fills out. School kids 
mingle with office workers around: the racks of games 
and, though the majority are there simply to browse, the 
till begins to rattle a bit more frequently. 

Everything from the latest shoot-'em-up to printer ri£> 
bo ns and blank floppies leave the shop In plastic bags 
and Bill starts to look a littEe more cheerful Even the 
bearded bloke comes out to the counter to help djring 
the busy period. 

An hour passes and things calm down. The hirsute 


repair man disappears back in La his hole to take care Of an 
ailing Amiga, Bill goes off for a sandwich, and thE assistant 
slumps into a chair behind the counter wEth a Came Gear. 

Ten minutes later, a very confused Amiga owner wan- 
defs m with a "please help me, I'm drowning" expression 
on his face. Having installed a new wordprocessor he's hav- 
ing problems with his printer and can r t get any hard copy. 

Despite his annoyance at having been dragged away 
from what was looking like a Sonic high score, the assistant 
scribbles dawn a few commands on a sheet of paper, 
copies what should be the correct printer driver onto a 
floppy, and a happy and relieved customer hurries home 
with one less Problem than when he left 

The day ends with the usual rush of browsers around five 
o'clock and Bill prepares to lock up for the night once the 
repaired machines have been collected by their owners, 

He's made less today than a big mail order outfit might 
make in an hour, but the satisfied printer user will probably 
become a regular customer and at least the latest 
budget games are shifting well Another unsung hero 
of the consumer computer miracle shuts up shop 
for the day.

DOS Lab 


The reaction that a priest gists when he hold? up a crucift* to n. 
vampire is similar to somebody holding an Amiga DOS manual 
up to a games player. 

Of course this is unnecessary angst and it's in every Amiga 
user's interest tD learn a hit of technical stuff — you never know 
when you might need it. Even installing a game to your hard 
drive can sometimes entail you doing a hit of mudsinjE around in 
Shell. 

But this Isn’t just a DOS manual - its an interactive disk 
manual that mites advantage of the Amiga's capacity to multi- 
task, so while you are learning the various 
aspects of the Amiga's Workbench in one window 
you can practice them at the same time In another 
window, 

It also teaches the reader small tricks that everybody even- 
tually picks up but are really handy in the first pUcfi. like using 
the arrow keys to stroll through the history of commands chat 
you use quite often.. 

This is all well and good but the programmer really hasn't 
taken into account that although he might find DOS very inter- 
esting., other people don't. 

The way the texc is written is fine - Ids direct and to the 
point wichouc baffling the reader yet not so slow as to treat the 
pupil like an idiot. 

The main problem is the font - it's the standard Workbench 
issue Topaz and the background cobur is deadly boring Had it 
been set in a good readable font then it would have been a 
winner. 

A good buy if your really want to learn - look out for later 
versions*

Analogue Mouse Port 

Haw many times have you overheard a PC owner talking 
about using an analogue joystick? Well I have bads of times 
and never really thought about using one on the Amiga - until 
we got a smart little gadget into the office from DigiPrinc, 

As you probably already know, analogue joysticks for the 
Amiga are few and far between. For the PC they are xen-a- 
penny so we decided to nick one of theirs. 

What we actual received through the post was a cable 
which has a. standard nme-pin port on one end and a 15-pm 
female plug Into which you plug the analogue joystick. 

And they really do work! The one drawback Is that only a 



Now us# PC Joyitfeftf c?n fhu Amig? 

few games such as MS Strike Eagle and Birds of Prey can take 
advantage of this technology. 

Even so it's a fantastic feeling and you get a lot more out of 
flight simulation. On the top of the 15-pin plug there is a three- 
point resistance setting which, allows you set the joystick to the 
resistance you want, and it's quite possible that some of the 
games you will try it with will only work on one setting, I can't 
chink of anything mare annoying than when the controls over- 
react an a game. 

From the same company there is an adaptor for a Bus 
mouse. This basically means you can plug a PC mouse into your 
Amiga. 

What's the point? i hear you cry. Well ff you have anything 
to do with image processing, a good PC mouse might be worth 
a try because many of the higher range mice go up to about 
100dpi - that's a goad 150dpi more accurate chan any Amiga 
model, 

The ;pgrt has been- cried and tested thoroughly and ft works 
with all the games and application software chat che manufac- 
turer tried it with.

It** about time programmer* completely gave up on 
the idea of teaching children using parrot fashion learn- 
ing programs. The new 10 out of 10 series takes a 
totally different approach, and one that everybody 
might not agree with. 

The entire learning process is done through games. 
What more could a child want but to learn by games? 
The first is a. type of duck hunt. A question appears at 
the top of the screen with the numbers you have to 
work with displayed in the middle. The pupil most 
shoot the correct number as lit passes along the con- 
veyor belt. 

You can make it a bit more awkward by speeding up 
the belt, limiting the shots that can be taken and set- 
ting the pupil a time limit for the exercise. 

This pressure on the pupil Is designed co speed op 
his or her reactions. It just a shame there isn't a feature 
in» the program to test reaction time. 

Next is Cover up, a simple similarity game where 
the pupil has to match up sets of numbers* There is 
very little maths actually involved but again it's timed 



so the child is under pressure to finish the exercise* 
As the program moves on T the set op becomes 
more sophisticated. The third game has a ther- 
mometer that steadily gets hotter and hotter* To 
prevent it from blowing its top the questions must be 
answered correctly. 

Again the game gets harder as the pupil pro- 
gresses - the temperature begins to rise faster and 


the questionsget harder. 

It doesn't actually let you win at any time - no mat- 
ter how good the student, the thermometer will even- 
tually heat up too fast and blow up. I thought that this 
would be a bit demoralising to the pupil - it's not very 
good psychology. 

The version of the software geared at the English 
side of the curriculum has pretty much the same 
games fncoru orated into it. This is bit of shame - it's 
all very well having a familiar user interface but the 
same games over and over again will just result in 
boredom. A bit of variety wouldn't have gone amiss. 

The programs are entirely mouse driven and gen- 
erally easy to use, A popular aspect that seems to be 
cropping up in a lot of new education software is the 
score card* 

As the pupil progresses through the program he or 
she will amass a score that can be improved upon 
later, and to keep good track yau can print out a 
score card. 

As a “reward" feature, at the end of each section it

AlfaPower hard drive 

Upgrading to-^a hard drive can be- Quite an expensive and 
bewi dering fob, with to man y different makes and varieties 
□r> the market today. 

Gasteiner have recently reduced prices on the^r 
.AlfaPower rang* of hard drives for the A 5 00 , AMJG Plus and 
AI 50 C* making owning pne a more affordable Experience 

The new range can be purchased with a variety of capaci* 
ciei between -40 and 1 20 Mb, and also includes the facility do 
n del extra memory between 2 and BMh using reasonably 
priced Zip chips. 

This extra memory is added to the memory already fitted 
internally on your mach-ne. So it is possible DO take an A 500 
Plus to a total 1 of 1 0 Mb - 2 Mb chip RAM and 8 Mb fast RAM. 

The hard drive we tested was the 40 Mb model with no 
extra memory, AlfaPower hard drive units are fitted with a 
full size hard crive as standard, but if requested can be fitted 
with a 2 , 5 in drive instead for a small additional cosl 

Having the ability to fix the imaRer 2 , 5 in drrve is quite a 
good idea, because if you ever upgrade to either an AW or 
A I 200 you can rhen remove the drive unit from the 
AlfaPower case "nd fix ii internally into your new machine 
with no problems 

There are two main type^ of hard drive available, which 
ire IDE and SCSI - there ts also, incidentally, SCSI ll r but this 
is not as widely uaea Ou£ :o in cost 

SCSI hard drives r £ - : t0 faster than IDEs but can cost 
almost a third p r « Generally an IDE interface 

will suffice for the home user or tenw-prefessponal. but if you 
intend to use the drive for man^ting large files all day tong, 
Chen the speed difference between IDE and a SCSI will be 
noticeable. 

The AlfaPower drr*c «cr the A 500 and A 5 G 0 Plus comes 
in a smallish mecaJ box wfich q the nine colour and almost 
the same ihap* as in A 5 O 0 

It has two switches on top ^ fi^abiing the drive or the 
memory. The ability to 5 **tch i off without unplugging il is a 
good idea as not all gams lice taring drives on at the same 


h possible for the Iticher to add encouraging len- 
tences if the child has done wN v a right good slag- 
ging If he or itw has hied to tome iqp to scratch. 

There Are plenty of other aspects that can he cem- 
trolled by the teacher - t— if the mold off or mak- 
ing an access code Co itap tita dW changing any of 
the information m the program, for bHtance. 

AH the gam» haw «io Mt-*i grades, each aiming 
at a higher National fWi iudtan Attainment Target. 
When a pupil loads a game it mm be *e on levol one, 
and will progress as he or dv Utwni more able. 

Overall the packages half bad- Therms a lot 

uf content and a vast tnmm* of i-A l i im atfon for the 
child to plough through i fcc h oiwii the fact that the 
overall pn?wntats«i ti a bit Mmd - not really colour- 
hil enough to hoW a ddff for a very long 

time. 






Economy ii 
of the 

gam* with the 
AiphaPower 
hard drive 


time- On the lack there a hofe m feed a ribbon cable through 
for you to control mother drive externally, The AlfaPower unit 
can control two d trm i required but if you have the Full-siied 
drive fitted she- dw enn dr we will hive to go externally. 

There is aha a plug on the back for you to use in etiOTiil 
power supply wh <ch tan be bought separately. We used the unrL 
qci i IMb A 502 Bu; one extra drive and found iE worked 
qu«ce happily *nh . -ji the external power supply, but d you have 
more than on* c*tn drive, extra memory and any other 
devices, you m-ght find your machine struggling to- supply 
enough: power. 

Connection <s ach-e^-td by removing the cover of the port 
on the left-hand snje of the A 5 QG and simply plugging die drive 
unit into this porr 

You then boot your machine with the supplied install soft- 
ware and begin the xepping. The software will dq most of this 
for you without you ha*, ng to have any in-depth knowledge. 

Along; with the software you aha get several utilities 
which help you to eftedt the performance of not only the drive 
unit but the extra memory added is well . 

On test it worked wcl! with very little noise even when 
accessing, and managed to transfer data at around 494 k a sec- 
ond which is qurro reason be for the low price. 

As already mentioned you can add extra memory internally 
by buying Zip chips which Gasttiner can supply for £69 per 
2 Mb. One qf the mqre rrooceable features of this drive is the 
fact that it has an expansion bus pass-through, which many 
don’t have. 

Having a pass-through enables you to connect other devices 
such as hand scanners, d posers and sound samplers to the side 
without having to unplug; the unit 

Certainly for the money, it offers a cheap solution to anyone 
who wants a hard drive but can't afford some of the more 
expensive models around- 

One thing to note if you have a I Mb machine and ynu install 
any hard drive is that you Will lose a fair chunk of that memory 
far use by the hard drive.

! dread reviewing software such as this because once upon a 
time I was a PD reviewer and programs such as these had two 
things in common - one, they were ten a penny, two they were 
invariably crap. But. once again I have been proved totally wrong. 

The first program from the series is called Home Brewing. 
Unfortunately it's just about wine and not beers, nevertheless 
the amount of information that been cammed onto the one disk 
is awesome. 

The program is clearly set out with no naff frilly bits. It s just 
a case of clicking on each of the different menus to get to the 
sub menu then the listings beyond. The best Feature by far is the 
ease of use - the icons and labels are nice andl big, which is an 
unusual surprise,

With the arrival of the new A 1 200 
and A3 000, more and more people 
want to uw VGA or multisync-style 
monitor?, htit tQ enable you to do 
this you have to have a special 
adaptor* 

Commodore up to now have 
been the only people producing 
such an adaptor* but now a com- 
pany called ftPS Connections are 
also producing one. The connector 
RDS produce enables an Amiga to 
be connected to either a VGA ora 
multisync monitor* 

This is where a lot of people are 
getting confused because if you 
connect an Amiga to a monitor 
which doesn't sync down io 15kHz 
then you won't be abie to display 


the 5 witch is bleed in a certain direction. The switches are 
placed at equidistant points so that they will be: triggered if the 
wheel is moved in that direction. 

So imagine yourself sat holding the wheel in front of driving 
sim. Posh forward to accelerate, pull back to brake - this cakes 
a bit of getting used to, but it's a good system 

Next we tried the pedals. This realty took me back to when 
I used to have to play Project X with a mouse on the floor 
which I had to tread on every time 1 wanted to select a 
power-up. 

Of course they are very handy For driving games - the 
wheel and die pedals together make a formidable Force. I thing 
most of the office tried them out at One time Or another. 

To look at r the pedals look like something from Mothereare 
- very big and chunky wiih bright primary colours for the 


A must for 
driving *Jl<f 
flight tim fun s 


Its amazing that such a blindingly obvious product has taken 
so long m hit the market. There was always someone in the 
office who said it was about time we had a steering wheel of 
some tort to play racing games. So we wont and got one. and 
what a laugh we had. 

To Complement the wheel we also got a set of 
Spettravideo pedals - If we were going to be b i« kids about 
this we were going to do it properly. 

The first thing that baffled me about the FreeWheel was 
the fact that It wasn't attached to anything - it is literally 3 
wheel with a cable coming out of it. So how does it work* 

Inside the wheel are mercury switches. With mercury 
being a liquid it will only make an electrical connection when 


Epson Stylus 800 

Epson have for some time been the market leaders in the dot 
matrix printer sector, but have not psLd much attention to 
irekjets - until now, that Is. 

The Stylus, according to Epson, is aimed at the mid IO high" 
end of the inkjet market, offering excellent pnnt quality at an 
affordable price. It uses Epson's new Piezo Print Technology, 
which is supposed to offer far greater print quality and speed 
over existing inkjet systems. 

The Stylus 800 5s quite small and certainly weighs far less 
chan its nearest rival, the HP DeskJet 500. It has nice, easy to 
understand controls on the front, and no messy DIP switches at 
the rear (which arc always such a pam to set correctly). 

When you First remove it from the box you don't have to 
worry about assembling any of its parts like with some printers. 
AH you do have to do before using it t$ insert the ink cartridge, 
which isn't very difficult at all, 

As far as paper handling goes, you can put up to 100 sheets 
of M paper into its paper handler at a time, and you can even

three controls. Set in-between the first and second pedal is a 
control panel. Five sliding switches each correspond to a move- 
ment on a joystick and the Fire button. You can assign my of 
these would-be movements to any of the three pedals, so pedal 
one can act as the Fire button and pedal two as a forward push 
on the joystick. 

My one problem with the pedals is dm they don't look very 
strong. Mind you. they got a good wdlying »n the office and 
stood tip very wel - they just look a bit limp. Apart from this, II 
think they're a smashing piece of kit.

and get hints and tips from the professionals. Each recipe has 
the method, ingredients and measurements, all of which are 
excellently set out, After you have used this package for a 
while you realise that it really is very professionally put 
together. 

The second program is The Stock Controller. A cracking 
little program, basically it's a database but it's specifically 
designed for keeping stock in a shop. There are some really 
mce touches, including an auto-save option to prevent you 
losing records if you leave the machine on and it crashes. 

The programming style Isn't consistent throughout the 
programs which 1 find unusual but It's not really a blow to 
their competence or usefulness. 

For the pnee there is no excuse for anybody io be caun 
tious - £3 .SC to have a bash and possibly find a program that 
will suit your iveeds well into the future is worth it. 


VGA or multisync monitor. 
According to RDS this adaptor 
allows people to use their Am if as 
on VGA monitors In hi-res or 
Productivity modes when set up. 
but it can also be used on a multi- 
sync monitor which can scan down 
to I SkHi and up to around 33kHz. 

Using such a monitor with will 
enable you |o access all of the new 
Ami gas' screen modes.

Because of the ^y the inkjet printers work,, which is, by 
spraying very umll unotmu of mk onto the paper, you have Iq 
tie careful which of paper you use. 

If you use ?iper *hpch is *ery shiny or has been coated then 
when the ink s sprayed omo it it wjII not dry before che next 
piece of paper n placed on cop, which will cause the printing to 
smudge. 

Also if yoy use «*ry rough paper, you won't be able to get 
sharp edges to you characters. as when you try printing the 
paper will absorb t he ?r.k and spread it slightly making your 
images blurred 

Its best t& try seieraJ ddferent types of paper before buying 
In bulk, as the dffcreflce between some papers when used for 
printing can be vast 

Unfortunately Epson have not yet produced 3 specific printer 
driver for use from Workbench for the Stylus,, but you can use 
the EpsunQ drwer and still obtain quite good results. Hopefully 
soon the company will get this sorted out and start producing an 
Anuga drwer speech ly for this printer. 

On test we used the EpsonQ driver which comes with 
Workbench We also tried EpsonQId but this didn't do a very 
good job ac a i Using EpsonQ gave very good graphic printouts, 
which didn’t surfer from that dreaded banding which you get 
from a dot matrix printer. 

We used True Print 24 to print our sample picture and it 
managed to produce some rather good results. Although the 
paper seemed co get a 1 t too damp when receiving pictures with 
a lot of decal this #as probata y down tp incorrect paper type. 

The Stylus has five bitmap and four scalable fonts built-in. 
Unfortunately you can ony use the scalable fonts if you have a 
printer driver which can utilise the newei Epson commands 




Na ciif for J SkHi modcr, the 4CM4170 at feast doer .good hi-rej scans 


called ESC/ PI 

Wordworth 2 if set up correct 5 / an use both the bitmap and 
the scalable fonts built itn to the Stylus with very goad results,. 
Also Wordworth 2 can also produce its own scalable fonts for 
use with any pnnter - these coo give good results with this par- 
tkular model. 

The Stylus has 32k of RAM on board for buffering, which can 
be split into two sections - one for text and the other for graph- 
ics. One thing that's missing is any kind of expansion port for 


extra fonts or 1 larger buffer, although the need for extra inter- 
nal fonts is not essential’ as most new word processors include 
scalable fonts nowadays anyway. 

With the Stylus being, art inkjet there are no messy ribbons 
co contend w?th, |ust a small black box, When you want to 
remove the ink cartridge you simply switch She primer on hold- 
ing down the Alt and Pause keys - this will cause the cartridge 
to move to the replacement area. 

Then you pull the damp which -covers the Ink cartridge

Now you will have enough ink to print 700,000 characters

are not reliable. 

As yet Epson don't have plans to produce a colour version 
but they do say they are going to release a colour inkjet Jn the 
near future, although they have no specific details as yet. 

The styfus certainly offers good quality printing at a reason-

Philips 4CM4270 
Monitor 

The newer Amiga* now have the Productivity screen mode, but 
unfortunately it cannot be used: on the two most popular mom- 
torsrthe Commodore 1 084 and" the Philips Mkll 8H31 

The Productivity mode is supported on the A 500 Plus, 
A.600, A I 1 200 and the A^OOQ. Productivity is mainly use d by 

> 


Amiga fAarkvf M ay f 993

commerciJil software such as word processors, spreadsheets 
□r d some graphic packages. 

It makes using Workbench much less stressful on your 
eyes. Unfortunately monitors which support this mode cost 
considerably more than lo-res models, These monitors can 
also be quite hard to find. 

Generally if you wish to use ah of the new modes, you 
should look for a multisync monitor which supports scan rates 
from 1 5kHz to around 33kHz, but these cost In excess of 
£450. 

So if you only want to use your machine for work purposes 
and not games or anything else that ui.es kvres then it may he 
worth considering, the Philips 4CM427{i extend ed VGA moni- 
tor, which costs over £100 less than the cheapest true mufti- 
sync currently available. 

The 4CM4270 is a colour multisync which according to 
Philips can sync between 30 and SSkHz, it has a I4in. 0,28 dot 
pitch colour screen, stereo speakers and a earphone socket 
cm the front, 

All controls are situated on the front of the monitor ror 
easy access, giving you control over audio level, contrast, 
brightness, horizontal size, horizontal shift, vertical size and 
vertical shift 

When used in Productivity mode the monitor gave good 
picture quality with very little bending of images near the 
outer edges of the screen, 

When using this monitor on the new A L 100 or A4000 you 
can put the VGA^only icon into your monitor's drawer which 
will enable -you to display nearly all Workbench screens with 
very reasonable quality. 

One drawback when using A 1 200 or A40OQ in VGA mode 
is chat sometimes the display is slightly larger chan screen. It 
can be a pain having to scroll around, although this mainly hap- 
pens with graphic packages such as ADPro. When used with 
either wordprocessors or DTP packages however, the display 
is fine. This monitor may be quite a good buy for someone 
who has a PC bridge board fitted internally into either an 
A 1 50Q. A2000, A3Q&G or A4G0Q as it will give them the ability 
to use their monitor as either an Amiga display or for the PC 



in SVGA mode, 

For the price it's certainly a good buy — if you aren't going 
to want to play games. All Fhalips monitors have a one year, 
on-site warranty included in the price too.

TypeSmith 

Font editors have been common on the Amiga since FED first 
made an appearance on the Workbench Extras disk, but they 
have hitherto been capable only of editing and creating Amiga 
bitmap Fonts, Softlogik's TypeSmith is the first outline font edi- 
tor on the Amiga and neady fills a gap m the DTP market. 

It is capable of loading and saving fonts in four formats - 
Soft Log ik's own PageStream format, Adobe Type I, Adobe 
Type 3, and Agfa Iniellifont, and is thus capable of dealing with 
just about any Typeface available for DTP and video tilling 
work. 

in addiuon, logos produced m a structured drawing package 
can be converted to fonts of their own thanks to TypeSmtth's 
ability to load DftlD drawings, 

Creating a font ft, however, no easy matter, A range of 
standard structured drawing tools have been included to 
enable the construction of characters from lines and Bezier 
curves, but unless the user hai a good idea of what he or she 
wants this It not a good place to start The old fashioned

Amici a Market May 1993 


method of panning a design cm graph paper is probably best to 
start with, as anyone who- has built up a complex object from 
structured drawing tools will confirm fust how difficult ft can 
be. 

TypeSmith will, luckily. load an IFF bitmap as a background 
template over which the user can trace the finished, characters, 
so it ee possible to draw a set of characters, scan them in. then 
import them one at a lime as twnpfetes, 

To make the designer's job easier, the package offers a vari- 
ety of time-saving tools. Composite characters, for Instance - 
those consisting of more than one part such as the dipthong 
(ae) - can be bulk from existing characters through a screen 
which enables the user to put together as many as he or she 
hkes then set the X or T offsets for each composite member. 

The resulting character is saved as a small table oF informa- 
tion which is then used to reconstruct it as needed rather than 
waste duplicate disk and memory space. 

There is also a print preview screen into which the user can 
type any string to be displayed in the current typeface and a 
typeface overview panel, 

This feature gives the user an overview of a complete char- 
acter set with all chose characters present in the currant set 
printed in white, but the characters themselves are displayed in 
the default system font. 

Previewing an entire font in Topaz £ is hardly the most 
effective way of judging how the characters look together. 

On the plus side, the Edit- Metrics menu option enables the 
loading and real-time editing pf kerning pairs such as VO and 
AV. When the preview option b selected, the kerning pair as 
displayed on screen and the user can change the amount of 
space between characters using simple mouse clicks or by 
assigning a specific value. 

As custom fonts will often have need of their own kerning 
pairs, the ability to add as many as required then save the kern- 
ing information with the typeface is invaluable. 

One pleasantly surprising feature when saving Incelllfonts is 
the option to specify that the font is saved in a Gold Disk 
friendly format. 

Since the early releases of ProRage. Gold Disk have insisted 
on using Agfa fonts with separate outline (.dai} and metric 
(.metric) files, making necessary the use of the Gold Disk font 
converter 

TypeSmith's acknowledgement that ProP^ge exists and has a 
fair old. share of the Am^ga DTP market Is both a refreshing 
change from the usual lack of communications between 
Seftlogik and their arch rivals and a feature which greatly 
enhances the package's appeal. 

TypeSmith is a superb package For what it does, and there is 
precious little that could have been added to make It any bet- 
ter. It wouldi have been nice to see the ability to create Amiga 
bitmap fonts from their outline cousins, but as this is a program 
designed for the professional market the omission is not a 
serious one. 

Full marks to SoftLoglk on a clean, elegant, workmanlike 
product, if a little overpriced. 



Paint packages 


DPaint 4 

DPaini needs no introduction,, as it has for long been the Amiga's 
number one am package. However. Electronic Arts made a fete 
entry into the HAM pamting scene only last year, and it hasn't 
been a particularly inspiring one, 

DPaint 4 has, of course, all the excellent features of DPamt 3, 
hut when considered as a HAM package it is incredibly slow and 
virtually unusable for freehand or even reasonably flowing work 
The speed of screen update is quite pitiful,, despite several 
enhancements in DPamt 4. 1 , and will discourage any exclusively 
HAM -based artist from the outset 

Still the best buy For general Amiga artwork and animation , 
DPainc 4 is a no-go For HAM fens.

Spectracolor 

This is probably the best all-round HAM paint package at the 
moment, if only because Et is smooth in operation and has a thor- 
oughly modern interface. Not as well established as DPaint, 
5peccracolor nevertheless mannges HAM painting with little fuss, 
quick screen updates, and a healthy supply of extra Features. 

The obligatory palette mixer is there, but in addition the pro- 
gram offers morphing, blending, smoothing and a wide range of 
colour controls. 

The animation function are easy to use, if a little slow, and 
selecting and creating p i octes ranges is a simple job. A weil bal- 
anced all-round package and recommended for the HAM artist, 
chough not as appealing as DPaint for general use.

DigiPaint III 

Developed from the Amiga's first ever HAM paint program* 
DigsPaint III is looking a little long in the tooth these days. It has 
some nice touches, such as the colour swatches and gradient 
ranges,, bur for features the package can't match the others. 

In the same way as Photon Paine, Digsffeint is a good choice for 
those with an eye to economy, but with its slightly quirky inter- 
Face ic fells short of ihe mark as a modern program, It has speed 
en its favour, something you'd expect from die HAM specialists,

Personal Paint 

A fiew produce for the AGA machine*, Personal Paint is a 
bask package with no animation facility and Linde in the way of 
frills. It is. deshgned purely with 254-colour images in mind and 
cannot load Hamfl File*, so users might find it of limited 
appeal, 

The tools included are perfectly capable of producing 
decent artwork, -and a fear selection or D Paint-style tools and 
pull-down menu selections provide enough Flexibility and 
power for drawing. 

However, the built-in image processing functions which 
are supposed to Send the package a unique attraction are 
often too slow to be usaHe. 

Definitely only of interest io the A 1 200 or A4QG0 owner, 
Personal Paint is best looked on as an alternative to the even 
slower DPaint 4 For basic drawing.

TV Paint 


Quite simply the best 14-bit paint package available for the 
Amiga. TV ffeint made its debut on the Harlequin card and 
has since made appearances on the Avideo and FV24 boards. 

Dedicated to producing high quality output For TV graph- 
ics, TV Paint does the job with the minimum of fuss and 
bother. All controls are accessed from 3 single floating cool 
box, and most icons bring up their own requesters. 


At n Hi times the interface is dean, simple, and easy to use, 
wtth speed and the necessity to avoid interfering with the artist 
so obviously of prime importance to the program's designers. 

The range of gradient tills, stencil effects and airbrush con- 
trols is unmatched, and. as the package has undergone constant 
revision over the past year, support For new developments 
seems certain to continue. Look out for TVFairiiL v2 in the near 
future.

Imagica 

Produced to run on th£ VD 2001 board, Imagica 's interface 
looks ssmkfar in many ways to that of Paintbox, the TV indus- 
try's standard 24-bii art system. AH controls are made via a 
large, smooth looking gadget screen which drops down when 
the mouse printer is moved to the top of the screen. 

Control Is mostly via gadgets which are big enough to read 
at distance, making them more readable than TV Paints diming 
tive tool box, and all main menu gadgets allow access io lurcher 
screen for the manipulation of colour, brushes, and special 
effects. 

The features available in imagica aren't quite as comprehen- 
sive as TV Paint, but the package can still produce images to 
milch its, rival. 

For the budget artists, Imagica is available- as a [wo module 
set; so it is possible to buy the basic painting functions in mod- 
ule 1 and spend the extra money later to get the more 
advanced features of module 2, or to |uvnp right in and buy both 
at once. 

No matter which course is taken, Imagica is a Fast, smooth, 
easy to use package which deserves to be running an a better 
board than the ageing VD 2001,

This software is bundled free with the GVP IV24 card, and it really

ably slow, difficult to use with ks minute control icons, and not

Pretext 5.5 

For long the Amiga's pre mier word processor, Protest is 
still the most powerful, though lacking many of the fea- 
tures found in Wysiwyg packages, 

Protest is tat, contains a powerful built-in macro and 
command language, can produce invoices using its line 
drawing mode and has many of the features you'll only 
otherwise find in a PC package, such as auto numbering 
and sett-incrementing variables. For business users it is the 
only choice. 

Disadvantages include its limited display (definitely not 
Wysiwyg}, its less than completely friendly interface, lack 
of graphics support and overall complexity, so it is per- 
haps not the ideal choice for home users. 

Ideal uses For Protest include invoking, mail-outs (due 
to its powerful mail merging options}, and the rapid gen- 
eration of huge amounts of text - its simple display lends 
it the fastest typing speed of all Amiga WFs. 



Wordworth v2 

Another British- produced program, Wordworth is a 
smooth, user-friendly word processor with fewer power 
features than Pretext but superb document design 
options and a finished output that's better than most, 

Wordworth is one of the easiest WPs with which to 
generate PostScript documents, as it has full support for 
the standard and is supplied wiLh 17 superb Agfa Fonts. 

It also comes complete with support for 140 individ- 
ual printers, enabling full control of built-in printer fonts 
from within a document. The spell checker and the- 
saurus used is the Collins Linguibase (as used by 
Protest}, so British spellings are the order oF the day. 
Goth work very well. 

The program's disadvantages are that it can be mem- 
ory hungry, offers no macro facility, and can sometimes 
run very slowly when memory is tight. 

Not. the best WP for the office, Wordworth 2 is better 
suited to the production of high quality PostScript docu- 
ments including graphics. 

Ideal uses Tor Wordworth include letter writing, 
important documents which have to look just right, such 
as CVs, simple DTP tasks (its graphic support and 
PostScript options give it a definite advantage) and gen- 
eral home correspondence. 




excellence! 3.0 


excellence!, which for iome reason doesn't have a capital 
letter aL the beginning of its title, is a huge sprawling 
package including a 140,000 word dictionary complete 
with definitions, a thesaurus, grammar checker, and 
Post Script support. 

It sounds like great value for money, and in some ways 
it is, but excellence! is in many ways over the top and suf- 
fers in the basic areas as a result. 

Advanced features include the ability to use multiple 
columns of text in a document, PostScript support using 
its own versions of popular fonts, automatic contents gen- 
eration (of the others, only Protext does this), and graphic 
support. However, text scrolling speed is poor and the 
program uses a lot of memory. 

For users worried about their presentation, excellence! 
is a good bet as the built-in grammar checker is powerful 
enough to spot most of the mistakes made by amateur 
wordsmiths.

Final Copy II 

Probably the most attractive looking wordprocessor around, 
FCH is fast, colourful, and slick. HamS graphics and DTP are 
the program's Forte, and it has a number of features specifi- 
cally dimed at making good presentation easier. 

Like its predecessor, Pen Pal, the program has drawing 
tools available lor designing page elements from within 
the word processor,, but in line with the main competition, 
all AC A graphics modes are supported. 

Uniquely at time of writing, FC II also displays 256 
colour graphics on screen, making it the best WP for 
colour printing, particularly PostScript printing,. 

For basic word pro cessing and superbly colourful 
pseudo-DTP, Final Copy H is a good bet, but don't expect 
to write a magnum opus with it. 



ProWrite 3.3 

Having recently been price-slashed, ProWrite is a rather 
attractive buy for those in need of a general purpose WP 
The problem with ProWnte is that it is just that - genera 
purpose. 

It is similar to Wordworth in that it is a full Wysiwyg 
package with direct PostScript support and a lot ol icons 
For standard functions. 

However, the PostScript option isn't as neatly imple- 
mented as the Digit* ottering, the program doesn't sup- 
port built in printer fonts, and it is slower, especially when 
Hamfi graphics are included in a document. 

Having said all this, ProWrite is a perfectly usable pack- 
age and has the advantage of its ten user-definable 
macros which can be very useful with a bit of thought on 
the user's part. 

Like Wordworth, it has a good, though American, spd 
checker and word count, but it will also carry out calcula- 
tions and automatically sort a list of words in alphabetical 
order. 

ProWnte is best suited to the home user who prefers to 
save a few bob and isn't too bothered about speed oi 
scrolling. For those people it represents a bargain at its pre- 
sent price and should serve well in its general purpose role. 





Scribble 

Scribble is one of the Amiga's golden oldies and is usually 
supplied as part of the Works Platinum home office pack- 
age, It is a basic, norv Wysiwyg wordprocessor and has 
few, if any, whistles and bells. 

Most of the standard options are there, including 
search/replace, spell checker, and word count, but its tea- 
tures are usually in the most basic form. 

Its dull-lockiny interface, with no gadgets and all option* 
restricted to menus rather like Protext 5.5 r doesn't score 
highly in these days ot prettified software, but thousands o' 
staunch users would no doubt agree that this leads to an 
easy-on- thereye environment for hashing out text 

There's little to commend Scribble other than this and 
its low price, but it's still an attractive buy For those with a 
need for a basic text engine. 

|l you want to produce documents with lots of text 
effects and different fonts, the print preview mode makes

\ n the past Iwd disks were scri-ctJy for the serious but 
, | /' with the ever in tress ng number or installable: gam«, 

./ fester machines and puncer-friendly power produces, die 
tabfes have turned and the anorakj ol old are no longer alone in 
the quest for faster, bigger and better storage. 

For those who newer wander much further than the games 
section* the apparent complex ity of the subject and range of 
hardware on the market must setm richer daunting. However* 
die move from floppies doesn't have to be as traumatic as you 
might imagine. 

One of the biggest misconceptions about a hard disk is that 
somehow it will transform your machine from an old friend into 
a total stranger sec to scotch any attempt at useabilicy, or alter- 
natively create an all-singing. aJI-dandpf automated answer to 
life, the universe and everything. 

Bliss and misery 

In feet if approached from the right or wrong angle both 
arguments hold water, the angle being your level pf understand- 
ing <jf how a hard disk operates. This could literally mean die dif- 
ference between bliss and misery 

In effect, a hard disk is simply a very big. very fast, floppy if 
you can keep this concept in mind,, managing the beast is a 
whole lot easier, For example, a hard dish has to hive all the 
basic dements the Amiga expects to- find on a floppy, 

If the machine can't find essential such as the C directory it 
won't perform even chi most basic Cl! commands as almost all 
the CL! essentials must be resident in the C directory of die sys- 
tem disk, just as they are when the floppy boots the machine 
thereby assuming the role of a floppy system disk. 

Whenever the mach ine is turned on with a bard disk installed 
and no floppy present the hard disk immediately becomes the 
system disk and as a result the machine wdS attempt to boot 
from it and from then on look to it for all the files asked for 
either by you or your software unless told otherwise. 

The point is chat you must be able to manage your hard disk 
properly by making sure that what die Amiga requires is avail- 


HARD 

TIMES 


With hard disks becoming 
ever more essential, it's 
time to cut through the 
technological red tape and 
unravel the myth and 
mystery of perhaps the 
most expensive add-on 
you'll ever buy... 

able and in the right place For thu reason alone a directory 
manager h essentia! Fortunately there’s a Joe of drake in this 
area with several programs in the public domain plus the odd 
commercial alternative. Notable PD programs including TDM 
and 5ID2 - both of whmh have been on past AC CoverDiiks - 


+ 

# 


while commercial offerings include Directory Opus and 
Directory Manager. For the beginner a PD program should be 
more chan enough as it simply makes the process of copying, 
moving and managing files much easier. If however you feel con- 
fident to handle die process via the CLJ or Shell feel free. 

In addition to- file management, it's essential you become 
comfortable with die AmigaDQS assign command as it becomes 
invaluable to ary hard disk user. Assuming you've deeded to 
tek-e the plunge, what's next? Should you gp for a SCSI or an 
IDE? Do you have 3 choice, and if so what's the difference? 

WeH although a slightly complex subject here are Che basic*. 
If you own a machine that runs on Workbench 2 or below you 
have the choice between IDE and - SCSI with die essential drier- 
ence being that SCSI devices are generally a little faster and 
more expandable while IDEs are cheaper. 

Unlike IDE the SCSI standard is much more intelligent and as 
a result can be employed to control other devices besides just 
hard disks. In arfdstipn a SCSI controller ii much more self suffi- 
cient than an IDE and won't overburden the CPU of the 
machine when readif^g or savi ng data. 

Gauging speed 

For the average user the difference in speed is barely notice- 
able, especially if you've just upgraded from a floppy system. The 
thing to ear in mind is that speed In relation to hard disks is 
totally different to whai you're use too. For example in floppy 
terms speed is usually gauged in minutes while hard disks are 
compared in milliseconds. 

In simple terms this means that software loaded on a IDE 
drive will take longer to toad in relation to the avenge SCSI 
with the effete increasing when writing k> the disk. 

On the expansion side an IDE will support a maximum of 
three drives from one controller while SCSI stretches up to 
seven. Although a real advantage 10 serious users the advantages 
aren't really an issue for the average punter. 

After all. can you see yourself lashing out for expensive SCSI 
add-ons or extra drives* 


Learn how to ask the right questions 


Before handing over any cash here's a list of essential questions you should pot to 
you supplier. 

First and foremost ask whether the unit is IDE or SCSI, If the unit it an IDE 
ask if the drive - minus the controller card - would fit into either an A60Q 
or A I 2 or:. This is worth knowing even if you're planning lu UiSe the drive 
externally because if you decide to upgrade later on you won't need to invest in a 
new drive. 

When buying an A SOC/5 00 Plus external* ask if memory tun be added to the drive, 
and If so can the machine still use this additional FLAM when the hard disk is 
turned* off? 

If the drive you want operates without a power supply, ask if there is an Option to 
add a power supply if necessary, This may be essential rf you plan to use the drive 
with additional puriipherals as the Strain on the Amiga's internal power may be too 
much. 

In the same vein* ask if the drive offers a DMA pass- through, If not it will be 
impossible to use additional DMA devices such as scanners ur RAM expansions 


oniess they offer a DM A- through option allowing the drive to be appended to them. 
If you opt for a SCSI device and wish to take advantage of it? daisy-chaining poten- 
tial, ensure that the drive has a SCSI through-port. If not you won't be able to 
expand later cm, unless you buy another controller card. 

Remember to ask about the speed of the drive. Query the drives access time in 
milliseconds. The fastest drives run at about 1 1 milliseconds with 17 being the norm 
for IDEs - anything above 10 is pretty sluggish,,, 

IfynuVe planning to buy a second-hand unit make sure the drive's original format- 
ting and prep software comes as part Of the deal. Jf disaster Strikes and you’re foi ceil! 
to re-form at your drive finding appropriate software can be very difficult - t specialty 
□ n older models. 

Finally when buying a drive make sure you have at least 2Mb of memory in tot.il 
Commodore found this out ED their cost with the A6QQHD which shipped with only 
I Mb and as a result wouldn't run many games simply because a certain amount of 
RAM is required to boot the hard disk and Workbench, thereby rendering tht rn 
unusable.

Digiview digitisers

consistent and have the 
edge on quality !" /A

results for anything within 
£200 of its price. ...Forget 
the competition. If you

If you can't afford it, 
borrow it from someone 
who can ! ' '
