any amount

quits 



iumapri leaving after ten Uifratfui matnh% 


IN 3 surprise move Kelly Sumner has 
cuit Com mod ore after spending rust 
sen successful months in the num- 
ber one UK seat. Two senior execu- 
tives are taking over in his place as 
am I gen oral managers. 

Sumner took control Iasi summer 
m his thirteenth year at the com- 
pany, and since then sales have 
soared to record levels and a mew 
generation of Amigas has been 
introduced. 

His move lakes hfm to Gamete k, a 
large US-based games company, 
where he is lashed with opening a 
UK office and selling up distribution 
across Europe, 

The software house supports a 
range of consoles and computers 
including the Amiga, and has plans 
to move into CD technology. 

David Pleasance rejoins 
Commodore, after spending time 
working in the US and Greece, as 
general manager for sales and mar" 
keting. 

Former finance director Colin 
Proudfoot heads operations and 
finance. 

Both general managers are well 
known to the customer base and 
their joint roles should significantly 
enhance the strenglh of our UK 
operations," said a Commodore 
spokesman.

John Butters reports 
from Hanover 



THE gunt CeBIT technology show held in Germany was the 
launch pad for two new Amiga platforms and announcements on 
sound and graphics improvements fur the range. 

Commodore used the exhibition Id unveil the 68030-based ver- 
sion of the top-end computer, which has been exited since the 
release of the A4000/C40, 

Externally, the A40Q0/G30 looks identical to its older brother, 
but lift its lid and there are a couple of extra changes to be discov- 
ered. 

3 hey include slightly les* memory, with this machine coming 
with four megabytes instead of the A4000/ 040's six, and the 
maths coprocessor is optional 

For a model fitted with an 80 megabyte hard drive it will sell in 
Britain for £99*1 including VAT, and a version with a 120Mb drive 
will cost an extra £100. 

The other new r Amiga unveiled was the A4000T, a tower ver- 
sion of the 6H044I machine. 

It has a couple of enhancements over the Desktop version such 
&& a SCSI-1! interface and higher capacity hard drives. 

Commodore also confirmed a report in last month's Amiga 
Computing that a digital signal processor (DSP) upgrade will be 
available later this year for their A 3000 and A 4000 serieS- 

The chip is under development by the American giant AT&T, 
and the board will have built-in stereo Codec to provide digitis- 
ing support for the chip. 

Fully multi-tasking, in addition to it* own two megabytes of 
memory will manipulate the Amiga's main chip and fast RAM. 

Ir will run DCQ5 r an operating system licensed from AT&T, 
and feature microphone in /our for mixing. 

Eventually the firm wit] add DS3 J s lo all Amiga*, and have 
plan* for Amiga speech recognition. 

Details of completely redesigned Amiga graphics were also 
revealed,, less than six months since the launch of the AG A set 


Two sets are under development one for high end use and the 
other for low-end. Il is claimed they will be compatible with each 
other and earlier graphics. According to the manufacturer, the tow- 
end chips have a resolution of l ft)0 k 600 pixels, operate at 72 IT/., 
include 16Mb of chip RAM and have an extended colour mode. 

The other version - which is further into development - will 
have four custom chips, a Lruc colour resolution of 1,000 x 1,000 
pixels and multiple blitter support. 


CD Amiga denied 


A CD- BAS ED system using 
the latest Amiga graphics will 
be launched by Commodore 
before Christmas, it has been 
claimed. 

According lo irade newspa- 
per Computer Trade Weekly, 
software developers around 
the world have already been 
given full details of she 
machine's specifications. 

It will be powered by $ 
68020 processor, have the AA 
graphics chip set end include 
expansion ports to enable a 
keyboard, 3.5m disk drive 
and other peripherals to be 
added. 

The manufacturer denies 
the plan. a$ they did when 


Amiga Computing exclusively 
revealed details of a machine 
with very simular specifications 
in January's issue. 

Kelly Sumner has, how- 
ever. confirmed that there will 
be a new machine later 
this year which has the poten- 
tial qI lifting Amiga 
sales higher than test year's 
record. 

There are fewer (hart 
30,000 GDTV's in the UK and 
Sumner recently said lhal 
Commodore got three basics 
wrong with the machine; 
price, specification and 
support. 

"I think CDTV's time has 
bee-n and gene’ he said.

AMOS The Creator has brought programming within the 
reach of over 50,000 Amiga users. Now it has been given a 
complete overhaul and the result is a vastly enhanced 
product - AMOS Professional - designed for all experienced 

Amiga programmers, 

AMOS Professional has 200 new commands, taking the total to 
over 200. Included in the package is a 650-page manual 1_ written by 
Mel Cruncher who wrote the highly-praised hasy AMOS manual, 
and Stephen Hill w ho wrote the original AMOS manual. Programs 
written using earlier versions of AMOS and tasy AMOS can be 
loaded into AMOS Professional for amendment or enhancement.

Kl ot ds well known in this coun- 
VKH t ,1 ilr-mus to lx\ 1 r 

I comes to you courtly of The 
Disc Company and ts a product of the 
na m e stable that brought you E'en Pal, 
Final Copy, and Tina] Copy II. 

It is unique in that it offers nol only tra- 
ditional database record keeping, but also 
the displaying of picture files and playing 
of sound samples. Combine this with the 
program's extreme ease ot use and you 
have a database which offers something 
Spec La I . 

The version found on this month's di^k 
is complete in every way and identical to 
the Infofile found in shops except that 
there are fewer example databases 
included on our disk. 

Once the main Infofik archive has been 
unpacked onto another floppy, u^ers wit! 
have a complete auto-hooting database 
program with enough space on the disk 
for a number of their own records. 

Start the process by booting from the 
Cover Disk and double clicking on the 
AOil disk icon, then on the tnfofile icon. 
We r ve archived the contents of the origi- 
nal Info file disk in order to fit It onto our 
own disk, so a window will appear and 
some text will warn you that you require p 
blank floppy. 

Once you have confirmed that you 


With this month’s 
free database 
program , 
everything from 
addresses to 
sound samp/es 
and graph/cs can 
be brought 
together under 
one organ/s/ng 
umbrella 





wish to proceed, the process of formatting 
a disk then unpacking the archive onto It 
wilt begin. 

This can take some bine, but is the best 
and most reliable method we have four wi- 
lt does, unfortunately, require 1Mb RAM, 
bui as no Amiga has been sold with less 
than this amount for well over a year, 
there should be few problems. As soon as 


the Info file disk is ready, reboot the 
Amiga and start the program. 

Initially, the screen will be fairly blank, 
with a completely empty page which 
looks like .s page of A4 ruled paper We'll 
start to fill out the database by adding 
some columns, but first lei's consider 
what kind of data we arc going to store. 

To keep track of, say, dub membership 


levels complete with names,, addressed 
telephone numbers, and subscription 
paid, we will need six columns with thi 
titles Surname, Forename, Address, Fih 
C ode, Phone and Subs, 

Creating these one by one is easy, and j 
matter of simply selecting one of IN 
define options from the Column menu. 

Start with Define Data, which is u*i 


Scala HVT 

From Scala UK 

The Scala HVT archive on this month's disk includes a 
fully functioning version of the package minus Save (unc- 
tion and with a built-in limit of ten pages in each script. 
Within these kmtt$ r every reader should be able to set up 
his or her own presentation scripts and run them a-r use 
them with a genlock lo overlay live video. 

To prepare Scala HVT for use, you must go through Ehe 
same process as used with Fnlofile by clicking on the 
Scala HVT icon and unpacking ils contents lo a fresh 
floppy 

Once the disk <s ready and you have been given ihe lin- 
ished message, reboot wilh (he second floppy. A message 
concerning (he demo will appear, shortly followed by the 
standard Workbench screen. 

For a quick mo through of some ot Scale HVT's superb 
features, double click on (he disk icon, then on Ihe 
Scroll. scrip! icon, This will load the player program, whose 
icon you can see in the disk window, and the Scroll. script 
itself which is a smooth and well presented set of tales for 
a lypscal home video. Once ihis has played a few times,

the Example, script icon. This is a very diMerem script 
showing a few of Scata's wipes, scrolls, and special 
effects for use in presentations and rolling infonnalion 
screens. 

On* viewing of this and ils companion script should 
be enough lo whet any users appetite, so lei's quit ou( 
of the script and load up Scala HVT proper. 



The main control screen is Ihe first to appear, an*

A requester appears asking Ihe user to chop 
background image for the page. This can be any I

with (hose supplied on disk. 

Click on the Piclure* directory, then on T@sl Pietu 
then on OK and our background - the familiar TV ! 
card - should appear. 

The bollom quarter of the screen will be obscun 
by a control panel, but Ehe user can flick to a f 
screen view and back again by clicking the rig 
mouse button. Here is where most of Scale's easy 
use features are accessed, so take a close look al th

Virus Checlcer vG-22 

Author: John Veldthuts 

0 m Of Ihe mosl univer- 
sally recognised virus 
kilters In she business. 

Virus Checker has mads 
several previous anpear- 
ances on the Amigs 
Computing CovwDtek, and 
we make regular efforts to 
keep our reader up lo 
date with Ihe besl system 
protection software. 

Version 6.22 is the lat- 
est version al time of writ- 
ing, so for those of you 
who have u&ed This pro- 
gram before, just drag the relevant Files Iroiu the CoverDi^k to your system disk and 

carry on as usual 

Those new to Virus Checker will need a little more tuition, but not much more, 

First run the program by double clicking on its icon, A thin bar will appear on the 
Workbench screer and the CoverDisk wilt be automatically checked lor viruses. Please 
noie that il this is the first checker you've ever used, il is highly likely thal you already 
have a virus. 

In this case, the CoverDisk may already be infected, which means Virus Checker will 
alert you. Do not mane the mistake, as so many have done in, She past, of thinking that 
the virus originated on our disk! This happens every time we giv* away a checker and 
it’s becoming ledtous . 

Right, rants aside, the CoverDisk should check out clean as a whistle end you 
should be able lo access the menus, Click on ihe Vims Checker bar with the left mouse 
button, than hokt down, the right mouse button to reveal menu options to scan a disk for 
link viruses or damage caused by Ihe Saddam virus, scan memory, and so on. 

In addition, usem nl Workbench 2.04 or greater can click on me window zoom gad- 
get to bring up an intuitive interface with more control over scanning options and default 

configuration. 

For full details on now to use Virus Checker v6 .22, see the on-disk documentation,

field. Please note that because the repeat 
data entry option, on the Options menu ih 
selected, pressing the Return key will skip 
to the next record- 

This is a useful feature when Inputting 
.1 large number of names in live same field 
over a range of records, but it can be 
turned off for now if you prefer to use the 
Return key rather than 1 ab. 

As the form view showy the data more 
or less as it will be printed, it ih important 
that the user is happy with how the fields 
are organised, and In that end Infofifie 
offers several incredibly easy to u* for- 
matting features 

For esarnple^ to alter ihe position of a 
record, simply click on the name of the 
field, hold down the mouse button, and 
drag ii to its new position on-screerL 
To change the size of ihe field, fust 
place the mouse pointer on the right edge 
of the field boundary and drag it in a simi- 
Lar fashion to when we altered the width 
of columns in the list view, 

Field names which are too long to fit in 
the boxes can be given more room by 
dragging the line separating them from 
the data area, but users should be aware 
that the names of fields will not be printed 
and are for on-screen use only, 

Complete control of the printed area is 


possible through the print menu. Choose 
Print Options fr ni this menu and a 
requester will appear nntainlng a number 
of variables which can be set to alter the 
printed information 

The default setup k for a print area five 
lines high and 30 characters wide, multi- 
ple records on each page, and no tabels r 
but by changing th-se v alues, the user can 


now, accept the defaults and click on OK, 
then select Page Setup from the same 
menu, 

This requester enables the setting of the 
more usual print options, such as length 
of page H margins, draff/ letter quality, 
pitch, and lines per inch. EL is preset to the 
best values for an A4 page, so leave it

At the moment there is no designated affect, but we 
can quickly find one we like by clicking on each icon then 
choosing the Show option. 

Personal Favourites will vary from user to user, but 
some effects are obviously designed to be u&ed on 
entire screens or very large brushes and so are inappro-

found, click on OK to return to the control panel.

This can be any combination ol background, test, and

real purpose at the moment is to show the transition

When the second page is ready and we're back at

Sefow we explain how to copy

* - might at same point want to copy a single program 

* - a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or 
wn your hard drive. 

To do this you'll need the COPY command. As most 

rerOisk programs are stashed away in their own direc- 
$ ‘ « r the quickest way to copy a program is to copy the 
whole directory at once. Use the command: 

CflFY (directory} T& fp-iwdlll} ALL 

* ^re [directory) is the full pathname of the directory 
> wish to copy, and fnewdisk} is the name of the disk 

directory into which it will be copied. 

For example, if you wanted to copy a utility called 
F-ED from CoverDisk 27's Utilities drawer to a directory 
- 1 ed FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: 

-■ :r (DfEINSIZbunilTIES/FREI Tfl WRCBENCHl. 1/FIE* ELL 

Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory 
•con and drag it across to the new disk's window. This 
has the advantage of creating a new directory for you 
*nd copying the Jeon as welt 

Once you have moved a particular program to where 
you require it you could experience some problems run- 
r n g 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 PoweriP acker, so when 
} - - try to copy them to another disk and then try to read 
them you can't unless you have also copied the 
5 . wenoacker library into your LIBS drawer. 



5o if you have copied a program from the CoverDisk 
to your Work disk or hard drive make sure you also copy 
any other files the program requires, ie fonts, libraries, 
device drivers and Ccommands. 


De-archiving 

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

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

Say we have archived a program called FRED, You 
simply double dick on FRED'S icon, and will be asked if 
you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to. Typ»e "y* 
or 'V 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 it and then use the program as 
instructed in the CoverDisk pages. 

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




Workbench 3 

If you have a Workbench 3 machine, don't 
worry - most if not all of the programs 00 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.

T hanks to the unri- 
valled success of 
the Amiga games 
market it's been a long hard 
■ tog for the Amiga to gain any 
reputation as a serious 
machine - even though hard- 
ware llk^ the A4000 can liter- 
ally outperform any PC on the 
markei when it comes to 
ics and general 
multimedia. 

You only need to mention 
the word Amiga to the aver- 
a ge technolog lea l] y- i l,] i tera te 
media p-seud to see the bigoted 
aftermath of the games years 
seeping from every spritzer- 
soaked pore. 

Thankfully some of the 

industry's more forward- 
. 

thinking companies am finally 
seeing the light and beginning 
to Let the Amiga play a leading 
role in their productions. 

At the forefront of this new 
wave come Broadsword 
Television Productions, the 
creators of K nightmare. 

Cyberzone, and TlrntbusEvrs - 
the UK’s leading virtual reality 
and adventure game shows. 

Before delving into the tech- 
nicalities of production I spoke 
to the creator of Knightrnare r 
and Broadsword's leading 
light, Mr Tim Child. 

Although 46 years young, 

Tim sriLI proudly claims to be a 
games player at heart, and in fact it's 
exactly his interest in games and comput- 
ers in genera] lha! inspired the creation of 
Knight™ re and indeed many of the other 
VR games shows In the Broadsword stable. 
Although firmly entrenched in the TV 
establishment Tim was once a member of 
(he oldest profession in the world - 
yes folks, a journalist! 

And it was during these formative 
years as a news hound that he first 
came into contact with the newly 
emerging games scene 

Way hack when the Amiga was 
merely ^ twinkle in the eves of a 
bunch of Californian hippies,, Tim 
was happily blasting baddies with 
the best of 'em, courtesy of a com- 



plete collection of early micros. 

Al though Fm painting a classic picture 
of a games junkie, Tiim's interest in the 
finer things wasn't merely tor fun. In fact 
he was one of the first people ever to 
grace the small screen as the Dominic 
Diamond of his day - admittedly a 
slightly insulting comparison, but thanks 
to these early exploits as a TV games pre- 


within such classics as Manic Miner 
screamed out to be taken a stage further, 
thereby providing a whole new strain of 
TV show for the ever-eagpr video kids of 
today. 

r 

VR EXPLOSION 

Although heading for its seventh sea- 
son, Knightmare was by no means the first 




Broad sword productions, The 
Satellite Came was almost 
entirely Amiga generated, tak- 
ing advantage of an accelerated 
Amiga 2000 an concert with 
designer software from 
Freese ape - a duel which com- 
bined lo complete thy illusion 
of a futuristic version of ihe 
familiar Dungeons fir Dragons 
scenario. 

Although slightly out-gunned 
by the mor<? technically 
advanced shows of today, this 
now long-forgotten show will 
always hold the title of the 
world's first YR gptnes show - 
and mark Tim's first steps on 
the road io a virtual success 
story. 

With die history lessor com- 
plete, it' s safe to move on to I he 
creation of the show itself. As 
you may have already guessed, 
the programme is by no means 
an Amiga-only production - in 
fact (he Amiga element Is com- 
bined with high-end dedicated 
graphics hardware such as 
Matisse and Silicon Graphics 
machines. 

Due to the format of the 
show, everything Involved is 
very much part of a layering 
process with the aforemen- 
tioned dedicated graphics sys- 
tems providing I he 24-bit 
backdrop while the Amiga pro- 
duces the Live foreground 
imagery such as scrolis f minor monsters, 
quest object* and so on. Amid the grow ing 
digital chaos comes the travelling human 
contestant, sandwiched within a sea of 
computer graphics. Of course in the studio 
our p re- pubescent hero is merely -Mum- 
bling around on a plain blue background 
onto which the various effects are 
applied via an advanced chroma- 
keying system which can even gen- 
erate shadows on the imaginary 
backdrop. 

On the Amiga sidy things are 
slightly simpler with the resident 
A2000 being plugged directly into 
a genlock housed in the studio's 
edit suite. Then the various

scrolls, trolls and assorted graphics are 
applied in real-time., 

Tim stressed that the game must 
remain exactly that - a game, in which the 
contestants can really become immersed - 
otherwise no matter how much technol- 
ogy was thrown at the screen, the kids 
would destroy the illusion with indiffer- 
ence when forced to hang around for 
hours between lakes slowing losing the 
"Alice in Wonderland" feeling that makes 
virtual reality so appealing. 

Due to this need to maintain the illu- 
sion, the Amiga is the perfect tool for real- 
time changes inspired by the actions of the 
contenders. If instant alterations are called 
for they can be edited from existing mate- 
rial on disk or, if necessary, generated 
afresh by the program's resident Amiga 
artist Jan Thwaites. 

In order to discover more about the 
Amiga graphics involved, I approached 


the voluptuous Miss ThwaLbes with a few 
probing questions about her past experi- 
ence. graphic creations and involvement 
in the wacky world of broadcast TV, 


in the best traditions of Amiga graph- 
ics, [an started her career generating game 
graphics, but this was by no means the 
beginning of her artistic exploits. 
Originally she followed the classic artistic 
mute of art school then the Koyal College 
of Art. 

On entering the wide world of graphic 
art, the inevitable letterheads and logos 
ensued , followed by a chance meeting 
with the aforementioned Mr Child who 
through various means convinced her to 
join the Broadsword team as an in-house 
graphic designer responsible not only 2 or 
the Annina elements but also many ot the 
real world praps seen in the show. 

As is the norm with profess inn a l 
Amiga artists, 1 was fully expectag a long 
list of expensive hardware and associated 


software to be quoted when the inevitable 
question of kit was asked. However, much 
to rny surprise there was no mention of 
Harlequins, ADPro or in fact anything of 
that Ilk. 

In fact Jan creates all the Amiga graph- 
ics on perhaps the lowliest setup imagin- 
able - just a bog standard A5IXI along with, 
the inevitable copy of DPaint- 

SOLID TALENT 

Amazingly enough there isn't even a 
hard disk on hand, and as a result all the 
graphics created for the show are ported 
to the studios on floppies and then 
installed on the edit suite's resident A2000 
read V for incorporation into the action , 

Although quaintly old-fashioned, the 
lack of expensive hardware only goes to

Although Knightnwe Is one of the most innovative 
applications of the Amiga In television, it s by no 
means the only one. In fact a whole host of well 
known shows employ the machine at the heart of 
their v ideographic systems. 

Catch Phrase 

Catch Phrase, the ubiquitous pat 
'jmsled by Me genial himsell, Roy “H’s gaoode bud its 
net right” Water, is almas* certainly the most Amiga- 
intensive shew around. Wilh literally every animation 
us-od em a rioting. I ram tfto bowels of s bank 61 net- 
worked A200Qs. 

Due to the number of anims required, ail of the ani- 
mated -creations are fairly bog standard DPaint jobs Tun- 
ning a! a round t& frames per second. 

Obviously with hundreds of individual anims going into 
every series, stretching the machine to il$ graphic limits 


would be too time-consuming atftTexpensive lo 
contemplate within the commercial constraints ot 
broadcast TV. 

However even under such restrictions. Catch Phrase 
BtilS manages to be one 0 ! tho most papula s ^i-r i^b ^hoivs 
in the business, once again stamping the Amiga's aultior- 
,ly as the most flexible, affordable and creative computing 
formats around 

Catchword 

According to our illustrious editor, the Amiga's influence 
isn't restricted south of the border, thanks to Catchword, 
which although similar in name to Catch Phrase, was in 
(act a slightly more oarebra! Celtic game show. 

Unlike many ot its contemporaries, Catchword 
employed the Amiga on a much higher graphic level, with 
ray-traced graphics running in real lime with the assis- 
tance of a Harlequin 3£-bi! board, and dedicated idling to 




bool. The titles were all Amiga generated via a custom 
package while the ray-traced elements appeared cour- 
tesy of Fteal3D. in short, almost the entire graphic output 
of a commercial TV show From what many still consider a 
games machine. 

The Chart Show 

Although a link between Knightmare and one o! the UK & 

leading music shows may seam a little tenuous, they both 
share a similar mixture ol dedicated graphics hardware 
and Amiga imagery. 

In a similar vein to Knightmare. the Amiga element 
takes the form of foreground graphics that appear in ihe 
form of icons from which specific infofmalion on the artist 
in question i$ revealed. 

Although vary reminiscent of the normal Amiga 
environment, the actual interface is a eustom-butll 
software package designed specifically lor the snow.

(ha ( ne matter how high profile a 
r' may be, nothing - n of even state- 
V- the- art Sjoftwaie - can replace solid, no- 
ftpftj^frise talent, 

[has seemingly idyllic production pro- 
O '- may sound prelly straightforward 
put nothing b ever that simple, and in fact 
Ian spends the entire four weeks of (he 
Kjughtawe shoot on hand in the studio 
n i d % to generate fit- 
ti" e graphic for the 
«* ernevotving plot 

Ofciv inn sly much of 
the groundwork can 
fee done beforehand, 
wch as empty’ scrolls 
arid assorted trea- 
iKiivs r but when needs 
dictate Jan can be 
IP ven as little as five 
minutes to produce a 
feraphk to suit an unforeseen twist in the 
fk*. 

After the revelation surrounding the 
lowly beginnings of many of 
h nightmare's graphics, the obvious ques- 
rien was when - if at all - will the new 
AG A graphics available on the 
AKMXJ/040/030 and 1200 make their way 
onto the silver screen? 

Not surprisingly Tim already has an 
At 200 and is busy experimenting with its 
inclusion into Knight mare - and indeed 
i r . w shows - already in the pipeline, but 
(or now at least,, old-style graphics will 
lufice. 

With the apparent profusion of expen- 
sive dedicated graphics systems already 
playing a major rote in the show the ques* 
taon had to be asked; Whv use the Amiga 

at all? 

Not surprisingly one of the main fac- 


• as little as five 
minutes to produce 
a graphic to ^ 

suit the job ... / 


tors Ln the Amiga's favour is cost. With the 
average Matisse or Silicon Graphics work- 
station approaching and indeed passing 
the £7C,£tOO mark, a couple of hundred for 
a standard Amiga obviously has its 
benefits. 

However it's not merely a question of 
cosh and in fact there would be little or no 
advantage in using such expensive hard- 
* w m ware for the kind of 

Jan can be given the Amiga 

already does all too 
easily. 

Admittedly l he re 
may be a difference 
in qualify but if such 
a small improve- 
ment became essen- 
tial, a cheap 24-bit 
board or AG A 
machine could eas- 
ily make the grade. 

Although the once-humble games 
machine can t as yet match the perfor- 
mance in pure .speed terms when com- 
pared to dedicated graphics engines, 
there's no doubt that the gap is dosing 
while the huge price difference continues 
to advance the Amiga's cause. 

The only question isi Can the machine 
stand up in an ever- mo re vicious mar- 
ket? In my opinion at least, the answer 
has got Eo be a yes - no matter what the 
cost. 

THE ULTIMATE 

Considering the increasing popularity 
nf (he consoles and a threatened new’ 
wave of head-held Nintendos and Segas 
on the way, Che Amiga ! s future has to be 
in what it does best - multimedia, static 
graphics, animation, ray tracing, music - 


A question of convenience 

With ihc- apparent success ol Kplghlmare, the obvious question was: Why had 
Broadsword chosen She PC as its vehicle to The virtual world for il$ next creation. 

Gyberzone? 

T he choice to plump to* PCs was even more strange when you consider that the latest 
VR arcade games Irom Virtuality - tbs company responsible for normally sensible people 
developing an insatiable urge to sport silly hals - are poweiod by wall-hidden Amiga 
30QOs deep within the crash bars and pointed plastic of the hardware. 

After quizzing Tim about this slightly curious choice* he openly admitted thal the deci- 
sion was purely om qI conventehoe. and binged around availability of suitable software. 

By chance* PC software ideal lor the Cyberzone concept was literally ready and wait- 
ing. All that remained was To network five 4£6 machines together and the show was rn 
business. 


in short, the kind of roles that have 
made it the ultimate productivity 
mathme- 

With the promised arrival of the 
AG Alius and AAA chipsets in Autumn 
of 93 and Spring of 94 respect ivety r it 
appears that Commodore have finally 
learned the lesson that simply sitting 
back and tenanting the profits doesn't 


make for good business* 

And with the new formats promising 
enhanced graphics and sound - 24-hit as 
Standard plus lb-bit stereo sampling - 
along with an 060 processor, the fulure is 
Looking better than ever for the serious 
side of Amiga computing.

The Colour Paielie jncrru 






i's probably fair to say that the origi- 
ns] Big Alternative Scroller (BAS to 
■is friends), which was the precursor 
Scrolled, m<*de more than a favourable 
tf revfitm on domestic and sembprofes- 
iKTyal video producers - and perhaps even 
■ irw pros. 

Who knows how many holiday and 
•adding videos it has captioned? I expect 
I e rather more than a few, 

Since BAS was launched several years 
%0 a lot of Amigas have flowed under the 
hndgp and Alternative Image rightly felt 
*hat a new product was needed to bring 
a* old faithful up to date, So enter 
Scroller! aloflg with a host of brand new 
inhires. 

FLOPPY DISKS 

It has been designed with the most 
■popular Amiga* in mind. Only a 
r* eg j byte of memory is required (prefer- 
ably as Chip RAM), which means that all 
but Ihe most witless Ami gas can us e it, 
However, hard drive users will be dis- 
appointed that Scrolled can only be used 
fitun floppy disk and power users like me 
may be a little cheesed off that it falls over 
the least sniff of an accelerator (at least 
1 * did with my normally placid GVP 
C ombci card). Still, not being in the major- 
itv I suppose 1 shouldn't complain too 
loudly. 

So how does Scrolled shape up in 
actiurn? The first thing to do is to reboot 
your Amiga with the supplied Scrolled 




Program disk. Being a non-standard DOS 
disk (and nonrcopyabte, though a backup 
is provided]!. Scrolled cannot be run from 
either Workbench or Shell, and neither 
will it multitask. 

The reasons for this are both historical 
and practical, since bypassing AmigaDOS 
provides an improved scrolling perfor- 
mance and makes better use of those 
Amigas with limited memory capacity. 

Once running, the main menu screen 
presents a set of choices. I he beauty of 
Scrolled is that every aspect can be easily 
accessed using either the keyboard or the 
mouse. Function keys provide quick 
access to each of the major sub-menus or 
operations And clicking the mouse on but- 
tons also gets you to the same places - so 
the choice is yours. 

In fact, once you've learned the ropes 
you'll very quickly adapt to miking func- 
tion keys and mouse action to speed your 
way around ScifrlleriL 

Furthermore, many of the sub-menu 
screens include additional sub- items. For 
instance, the Font Parameters menu con- 
tains shadow settings ami several spacing

A REVIEW 

ALTERNAWfC 





Gary Whiteley enjoys a sneak 
preview of the scrolling successor to 
the Big Alternative Scroller, the aptly 
and originally-named Scroller! 




5 wJkot fdiv Hwpptrr wbfrr you gni/KJr tjraphk 1 over video 


commands, while the Video Parameters 
menu has settings for the number of 
colours (four nr eighth genlock mode 
(on /oft and Auto) and a test pattern 
loader. Again, keyboard or mouse com- 
mands make every choice simple and 
efficient. 

Helpful as ever. Alternative Image 
have made sure that a well thought-out 
demo is included to show vdu just what 
Scfollcr2 can do. And this is an ideal place 
to start. Simply by pressing the FI key, a 
whole scrolling demo Spring* to life, 
demonstrating all the features of Scrolled 
both effectively and, at times, humor- 
ously. 

EMBEDDED COSTS 

After You've watched it go through its 
paces a couple of times youTI be itching to 
have a go yourself. But wait! A little study 
at this stage could well bear fruit Jalcr on. 

'] he demo is also an ideal illustration of 
how Scroller 2 uses embedded control 
codes These -can easily be seen by editing 
the Scroll ustng the Escape key - which, 
incidentally, i* probably the most useful 
key in the whole package, as it is used to 
halt or exit almost every operation and 
return to the previous or main menu 
screens. 

By subsequently moving into Test Edit 


mode (key F3) and pressing the Control 
key, a horde of strange little boxes appear 
among the more familiar words and 
letters. 

lust like text, these codes can be 
inserted or deleted at wilt and provide a 
direct way of controlling various aspects 




Making 
life easier 

As a bonus, several extra programs are 
included on a tak^lhem-as-you-find^tbem 
basis so provide a means of converting 
Amiga fonts into Scroller fonts, .standard 
Ascii text files into Scroller-compatible 
text and bitmapped graphics into font 
objects which can be used within 
ScrpIterS- 

Admiltedly. the programs tend towards 
the nou§h-and- ready , but they all manage 
to do their intended jobs without too much 
hassle, 

There are limits, however. Converted 
fonts should have no letters wi der than $4 
Hines (otherwise they will not display cor- 
reclily) and graphics can only be eight 
colours maximum - though in hi-res these 
certainly look crisp enough.

as shadowing, colour and tout 

You can team a lot about Scroller! just 
by watching the demo and bearing in 
mind just where and how I he different 
control codes are uwl, 

But it's all veiy well watching someone 
clse's work. How do you go about making 
your own? By first applying A bit of plan- 
ning. If you can decide in advance what 
you want to achieve then everything 
becomes easier. Write out what you want 
lo say on-screen in the order vou want to 

■ •f 

say it 

LVbaps, for example, you need to make 
a set of end credits; so list who did what, 
who gets credited first, the sizu r colour and 
style of lettering that will tie used and then 
start work in the text editor. 

Don't worry if you don't include every- 
one first time around, because Scroller! is 
quite forgiving. Words can be added, 
deleted and easily changed at any time - 
and that goes for the font as well. 

The editing sewn is, somewhat unsur- 
prisingly, where text editing takes place. 
Entering text is very similar lo using a sim- 
ple word processor and at itb most basic 
involves just typing words onto the screen. 

But of course this will probably look 
rather dull, so there are umpteen ways of 
sprucing the text up and turning the really 
mundane Into the relatively marvellous. 
Through the use of a simple pop-up 


control pane! « which is good news for 
Amiga 600 usem who don't have the stan- 
dard numeric pad on their machines - and 
function keys, every aspect of ScrolEerZ's 
text functions can be utilised to make 
interesting titles and captions. 

Font selection, colours^ justification 
speeds, pauses, dissolves, changes from 
vertical to horizontal scrolling (and vice 
versa), shadow placing, graphics symbols, 
access to "exotic'" and foreign characters 
and several other miscellaneous functions 
are all at the user's fingertips. 

INDIVIDUAL FONTS 

In addition, further tweaks can be 
made to the way the text plays back by 
changing the spacing and shadowing of 
each individual font which is loaded into 
memory. 

Once you think you’re getting some- 
where, it's easy to check your progress by 
jumping to Scroll mode and seeing how it 
bill looks. This is also a good; time to try 
adjusting ihc scrolling speed and judge 
how fast the text may need lo go to be 
easily read. 

Speed can be instantly changed by 
pressing keys on the numeric pad (unless 
you are an Amiga 600 owner, which 
means you have to use control codes 
instead) or stopped altogether by Kilting 
the 0 key. As and when you feel like it, 
work can be saved to a spec tally -lor mat- 
ted text disk. 

I'm not entirely sure how many fonts 


Those new features 

To whet your appetites, here's a selection of some 
of the new goodies which are buiit in to Scroiler2: 


• Horizontal crawling a 5 well as ver- 
tical scrolling 

f Can use standard Amiga lorMs, as 
wall as CotorFonts. 

# 22 quality fonts, provided in a vari- 
ety of styles, 

# Mix fonts, colours and shadow 
sty les in words, lines a no pages. 

• Adjustable margins and crawl 
positions. 


• Increased number of speeds. 

• A variety of transitions, including 
TeleText and fade. 

• Embedded control codas lor com- 
plex visual scripting, 

• Smoother scrolling. 

4 Up to eight colours available from 
4.096. 

§ Both mouse and keyboard 
support. 


It's easy to 
check your , 
progress by jumping 
to the stroll mode 
and seeing how 
it works 

can be held on the system at a lime^ as 
this is governed by the amount of Chip 
RAM available on the Amiga in use,, 
though a megabyte should hold at least 
ten. 

With some though L system fonts can 
be fairly easily managed by making up 
custom font disks with which to replace 
the default fonts, something I'm sure 
many users will be anxious to do. Then 
its a relatively simple task to load your 
favourite set when you need it 

CUSTOM FORMAT 

Speaking of disks. Scroller! uses its 
own format for both text and font disks 
(which, incidentally, are not inlerehange- 
able) and though it is possible to copy 
these disks through Amiga DOS (though 
currently only with a copier like X-Copy 
ur D-Copy under WB2.X or greater) there 
is no way to monitor how full a disk 
might be or to fix it if something goes 
wrong, 

And if anyone believes that nothing 
ever goes wrong where computers sire 
concerned then they are very foolish. So 
some non-DOS disk management pro- 
gram should really be included - unless 
the data disk format can be changed to 
UO£, of course. 

Let's be dear,. Scroller! is not without 
its problems,, due mainly to its non - 
AmigaDOS operating system making 
disk management something of a battle 
and the Scroller Utilities also contributing 
to the confusion. 

There are also areas of Scroller! which 
need completing, particularly the help 
areas, and a few bugs need fixing, hot on 




Who needs 


Although programs such as Deluxe 
Paint IV can fulfil many ol she Amiga 
videographer's tilling n^eds. there air 
times when it cannot successfully pro 
vide functions such as smooth vertica 
scrolling or horizontal crawling, not K 
mention special screen effects. 

While Scrolled offers little in the wa;« 
□f wipes and other effects - in contras: 
to much more expansive programs suefi 
as Broadcast Titter - if does provide 
easy access to scrolls, crawls and sev- 
eral other effects, making it an idea 
companion to Deluxe Paint, even for the 
more accomplished video maker, 


the whole the benefits, easily outweigfc 
the drawbacks and in any case ih 
Scroller Utilities are included more 
tools which users may find useful rath 
than completely user-friendly progra 
i n their own right. 

Alternative Image are the first i 
admit that Scroller! requires some tid\ 
ing up but they report that so far m 
users have been more than satisfied with 
the product, warts and all. 

To sum up, Scroller! provides smooth 
scrolling and crawling text with plenty 
speed and other controls, a generous 
range uf presentable fonts and a simple- 
to-use Interface. 

It has its idiosyncrasies of course, but 

r 

on the whole it works well and most pur- 
chasers should find it good value for 
money - especially if they are upgrading 
from BA$- 

And if you think that eight colours isn 
enough for a titling package just make a 
note of how many colours the profession- 
als use n^xt time yon watch the box. You 
might just be surprised!

MUSIC 


A lthough the title points towards 
an upgrade rather than a revo- 
lutionary new release, don't be 
deceived. The name may be similar, the 
graphics fartiUkr and the interface seem- 
ingly identical' however it's under the 
skin iv here the real beauty of B&PFroZ 
starts to show, 

Before the guided tour begins, now 
might be a good time to explain the basic 
concepts of the package before newcomers 
become hopelessly confused by what can 
appear to be a combination of mu sic r 
plumbing and DIY, 

Unlike the majority of Amiga 
sequencers. B&Ff’ro is a true Amiga pack- 
age - bom and bred - as opposed to a sim- 
ple port-over from the ST and PC market. 

Although not necessarily a fatal prob- 
lem - as Dr.T’s often prove - porting does 
mean a lot of the Amiga's natural talents 
are often overlooked or ignored. 

However this particular accusation cer- 
tainly can't be levelled at B&FPro - no 
ugly green screens, full multitasking, 
ARexx, colourful point and dick controls, 
pop-up requesters and mouse control 
with everything- In short the stuff that 
makes the Amiga the mobt flexible and 
friendly machine on the market. 

If you’ve used sequencing software in 
the past you’ve probably already noticed 
B&PFmZ isnT exactly standard, Rather 
than assigning a simple track to each Midi 


channel the software allocates a separate 
pipe which sandwiches the trjck or 
sequenced section between *m input and 
output pipeline. 

The whole idea is that the package 
works like a sausage factory but rather 
than processing porkers those same princi- 
ples are applied to Midi data,, interna! 
Amiga sounds and multimedia events. 

For now we'll stick to the program’s 
primary concern, which of course is Midi, 
To set up a pipeline you first pick any one 
of the lb default tracks or alternatively 
create a new one - which of course can bo 
renamed when necessary' 

Due to the program's Midi tendencies, 
every track has a Midi In tool by default - 
Without which you can't even squeeze a 
solitary note into the sequence courtesy of 
your keyboard. 

TOOL SELECTION 

This is a prime example of a tool in 
action - in this case an input tool, if you 
were to select the ARexx real-time tool 
and drop it Into a pipeline it would then 
automatically replace the Midi In as the 
input and from then or process incoming 
ARexx rather than Midi data. 

Due to the immense potential of tools 
the whole section will be devoted to a 
more detailed examination later on, but 
for now well continue into the sequencer 
itself, bypassing the tOgglable play, mute

Experience state of the art music and 
multimedia in concert courtesy of Bars & 
Pipes Professional 2. Paul Austin explores 
the most exciting software release to 
hit the Amiga in months 


and record buttons in the process. It's 
within the confines of the sequence win- 
dow where you can examine and edit the 
results of the recording process. With the 
assistance of a well- placed mouse click 
each sequence opens its own unique edi- 
tor complete with the entire passage for 
that particular track. 

This can then be view, edited or printed 
as either classical notation, hybrid not.i- 
tion, piano roll, or using the "latest addi- 


tion of tablature - note* displayed as fin- 
gering positions on a guitar frtt board. 

If one display mode isn't enough, <1 
combination can be used to suit any taste. 
In addition, a whole host of les* tradi- 
tional musical information can be added 
including volume, pitch bend, mono and 
polyphonic aftertouch, control change, 
program change, chords, rhythm, lyrics, 
time signature, key, scale and even 
dynamics, In short, it you want to view,

Through the edit window... 


In the top right-hand corner sits the only 
permanent feature ot the B-SPPre>2 inter- 
face. namely the 16 ■edit windows, each 
of which deal with a completely sepa- 
rate aspect ol the editing and produc- 
tion process. 

Without this modular design, working 
with the package would be almost 
impossible due to the huge variety of 
available windows. 

Even In its present lorm the screen 


can still become very cluttered and as a 
result a hl-res display, whether it be 
Iticker fixed or productivity. Is a real 
bonus, However Blue Ribbon have done 
their best to solve the problem by imple* 
meriting double height and width dis- 
play on WB2 machines 

The result Is that elements can be 
left out while the screen scrolls around - 
in eflecl providing a scrollable window 
on the entire interface. 




For here you can implement 
the program's expansion 
options by in effect plugging 
additional software into the BSPPro2 
interlace. 

By defauli id basic accessaries come 
as standard allowing connection to both 
software and hardware, but it's also here 
where other elements ot the Blue Ribbon 
Range can be added including Superjgm!, 
Patchmeisier and SyncPro. 

Once installed each becomes pal of the 
BSPPro interface sharing its particular tal- 
ents for the common good with perhaps the 
perfect example being SuperJam! which 


automatically places its musicians in the 
form ot tools directly into the Icol box ready 
to be slotted Into your chosen track tor 
recording alongside your original 
creations.

first or edit any aspect of ih*- piece it ^ 
-imply m matter of selecting the option 
Tom the pull-down, 

Assuming the environment is now to 
your taste, editing car begin, and to assisi 
the process each window contains a Com- 
plete set of point-and -dick edit modes. 

The available options include a magni- 
fying glass allowing access to specific note 
information, a pencil for note addition, j 
magic wand for altering existing notes, a 
oand for dragging notes, an eraser for 
deletion, a todize option which applies a 
specified tool lo any selected notes, a 
hounding host to make the aforementioned 
multiple selections and finally a step time 
option allowing note entry via predefined 
‘iettings. 

OUTPUT PIPE 

The nest four icons allow adjustment ot 
the note settings and as a result any note 
length and volume can be set for additions 
both in slop-time or during free-hand 
editing 

The final four buttons further enhance 
display and editing via twin zoom but 
Eons, a playback option - cither with or 
without additional tracks - and finally a 
cngglah]? measure-tp-SMPTE time 
display, 

Assuming editing is complete, next up 
comes the tap at the beginning of the out 
put pipe. From here you can cither cut the 
output completely, play prerecorded 
notes or select the default thru mode to 
hear your live input in concert with the 
existing sequence and any additional 
tracks. 

From here, the pipeline flows out and 
enters the Midi Out tool ready for input 
into the chosen module or kev board CDUf- 

jf 

tesv nf thr channel selector at the very end 
of the pipe. As you car see from tbv 



Clipboard 

In the best traditions of cut 
and paste recording, 
BSPProE nol only edils 
individual clips but also stores them 
sequentially in Iho clipboard, and as a 
result tfls simplicity itself to share elements 
between tracks, 

A particularly nice lo-udh is the option to 
specify what aspect ol the clip is used. As 
a result you can paste only, say, the pitch 
bend information from one track lo I he 
next. 

In faci ^11 the elements mentioned in 
the editor section can be included or 
excluded as required, and lo finish the joo 
clips can even be saved to and loaded 
from disk.

.^T^en&hots^ ihc pipeline and sequencer 
aren't the only elements within the Track 
window. 

Above the tracks themselves come the 
program's group, playback and multiple 
edit features. 

From left to right: E lie options, start 
with the solo election button which tog- 
gles the output oi the sequence dependent 
on track selection. 

So for example if just one track is 
selected the sequence will cut L =md re-con- 
ncct the valves to either solo the selected 
or cut the selected completely. 

The same situation applies to group 
selections and as a result it's possible 


place all the percussion track m a group, 
select them by their group number and 
then solo or remove the percussion instru- 
ments as required. 

The next option takes global editing to 


ils logical extreme by offering a toolize 
feature allowing a specified tool to he 
used across all the tracks in the sequence - 
quantise being a perfect example. 

After toolize comes the aforementioned 
Croup feature Allowing up in eight differ- 
ent groups to be defined and then played 
hack or edited as independent units. 

EASY EDITING 

Yet another organisation option along- 
side allows the track position to be 
adjusted meaning individuals can be 
moved up and down the list thereby pro- 
ducing logical groupings of related tracks 
for easier editing and cross-track 
connection. 

Next up come the transport controls 
and tempo option, although in reality the 
permanent controls offered in the Track 
window are really only a cut-down ver- 
sion of the f<ill transport options wt?T! lunk 
at a little later. From here all the basics are

Song construction 





U_ 


In this particular case Ihe 
title tends lo give the game 
away. In shorl It’s hare 
where the finished verse, chorus and in 
facl anything else can be knocked into the 
shape of a complete song be employing 
She same editing techniques mentioned in 
!tie track editor This time the various cut, 
paste and duplicate options operate on a 
bar-by-bar ba$i$ 

However, in addition there lb one major 
difference in the Form of Ihe A-B-A editing 
system which when combined with the pro- 
pagate option in the pull-downs allows any 


edits which occur within a named section to 
be automatically cop Ed to all identical pas- 
sages throughout the song - automation at 
its best. 


Informat Boat 

■ ~i Again yel another rather 

sei1 explanatory fBalure 
I. ■ which simply relays the 

appropriate Information on the select track, 
plus song position and length, notes allo- 
cated and available RAM - whether it be 
chip or fast. 


Tempo map 

just as you can edit notes 
you can also edit time itself, 
a rather grand concept per- 
haps but in reality it simply means the tempo 
of Ihe track can be altered at any point via a 
selection ot four transitions curves which like 
all the edit options are applied and edited by 
the same tools tound in ali the etfrt windows. 



Master parameters 

In addition to being the 
place to add such things as 
lyrics, chords, key signature 
and rhythm, the Master Parameters have a 
more subtle side which provides a rale ranee 
point for various tools and accessories, 

For example Ihe time signatory will 
affect the printing of notation while chords 
and dynamics directly affect the cbpFd and 
phrase shaper tools. 

Tempo palette 

AEthough overshadowed 
slightly by the Tempo map, 
the palette window offers a 
selection of four preset tempos which 
selected direct from icons as required. >

possible with mouse-driven tempo adjust- 
ment plus point and dick tape deck con- 
trols for playback, record and rewind 
alongside a counter showing present song 
position. 

Although single track editing has had a 
brief mention it by no means offers the 
powerful multitrack cut and paste that 
sequences are famous for. As a result it's 
here where the programs fairly unobtru- 
sive multi-edit options come into their 
own. 

CUT AMD PASTE 

Admittedly mult] track cut and paste is 
probably the most important function on 
offer of the total collection of 12 assorted 
flags, which allow up to four definable key 
song positions, definable punch -in and 
punch-out points, looped vretmns., edit 
markers for the aforementioned multiple 
cut and paste plus a stop button ready to 
terminate playback at any point. 

Even though a rather confusing selec- 
tion initially, all 12 flags follow exactly the 
same principles of placement. As a result & 
simply click and drag to the appropriate 
point is all that's required to set up the 
option of the your choice whether it be a 
key position, looped section or a cut and 
paste area. 

Although closely linked to the transport 
window mentioned earlier, the so cal Led 
* flags" have their own window allowing 
numerical adjustment while activation of 
ihe specified punch-in and loop sections is 



handled by the main 
transport. 

And of course accord- 
ing to your preferences - 
again set via the 
pull-downs - the place- 
ment of flags can he 
automatically aligned 
with measures, heats, 
seconds or frames 
thereby snapping the 
particular flag to the 
nearest occurrence of the specified event. 

Although rather innocuous wee beasbes 
it's the 79 tools supplied with B&PPro that 
make it really special. Due to the numbers 
involved a complete explanation of each is 
out of the question however it's pretty sale 
to say that if there s a specific need either 
an individual or combination! of tools wilt 
fit the bilk Obviously with the addition of

/mj t a imfrf/ weiection of the Immense number 
of tools that os port of rfr# package 

vast majority remain musical fitting very 
roughly into three basic categories. 

First comes the fairly familiar special 
effects such as echo, delay, reverse, liar 
monise, chord builder and so on. In shor! 
the sort of effects you'd expect from a sig- 
nal processor. 

Next come the splitter effects which - b\ 
reading either the velocity or pitch - filter 
Certain notes to another track or perhaps 
replace one sound with another after a spe- 
cific volume. 

Alternatively tools such as counterpoint 
actually Hi*- your notes to generate original 
accompaniments or chords. 

Lastly come the pipe-orientated tools 
such as branch out, merge, transpose, feed- 
back and so on. Although out usually 
responsible for altering the sound ehrectlv 
these channelling tools provide an invalu- 
able link to other tracks in the sequence. 

As a result it s possible to build huge 


IVIed ia madness 



in many ways the Media 
Madness window is almost 
identical to the hue k window 


with the only real difference being that the 
latter is designed primarily to record and dis- 
play multimedia events alongside musical 


ones. 


So for example, if an IFF is assigned to a 
specific key on a track, the event when 
recorded wilt appear within Ihe Media 
Madness window as perhaps "carPIc' - 
assuming that's what you've called it. 

The same applies to ell the program's 
multimedia options - you simple assign a 
key and then while recording any depression 
of that particular note will activate the event, 
even though within the track window this 
N speaal note' appears ju&t like any other. 


By this inpen idus approach to multimedia lit- 
erally anything can be controlled by what 
appear to be a beg standard bits of Midi: 
information. 

Well look a little closer at ihe multimedia 
side oS BSFPrgg' taler but in essence the 
Media Madness window is merely a multime- 
dia reflection o! the track window, compete 
with all ihe edit options you'd expect from a 
Midi graphic editor - although the edits them- 
selves are usually media rather than Mi<S. 


Time-line scoring 

Although timing keeping 
appears ig have been 
■“" almost flogged to death 
elsewhere in the package, lime-line scoring 
offers yef another option, but this time it's 
whole songs that come under the micro- 


scope - or should f say metronome. 

Via the now familiar selection of edit tools, 
complete section can be dragged around in 
SMPTE time to provide the perfect synchro* 
nfesing environmenUor DTV and film. 

M etronome 

IMoie surprisingly it's here 
where the human side of Ihe 
lime keeping gets a hand 
with options for internal and Midi counts 
either with or without the flashing assistance 
of the interlace itself. The almosl embarrass- 
ingly friendly point and click continues with 
mouse control for everything from selecting 
the channe* and patch for playback, the num- 
ber oi intro bars prior to record and 'Aether 
or not the count continues after the lead in. 


Toolbox 

Although the tools them- 
selves will enjoy an entire 
section to themselves later, 
It's from here where they emanate. 
Depending on how you set up the window 
the various tools either appear as icons or 
icons complete with their names appended 
alongside. 

Although the icon-only option may seem 
slightly stupid it's wilh good reason as an 
incredible 79 tods come as part of the 
BfiiPPro^ package. 

As existing use re ol its predecessor will 
be well aware this is a huge increase and a 
major selling point for the new version. 
Fortunately tor both memory and space 
you're given total control over installing and 
removing tools as required!.

goes un and on, 

In short, although not strictly a presen- 
tation package r B&FFro offers arguable 
the most comprehensive multimedia envi-

they even throw in a standalone Media 
Madness player to round things off. 

Although noted for my less than 
enthusiastic closing paragraphs I must 
admit I'm at a ioss to knock what in my 
Opinion is One of the best releases in 
months, if not years. 

NEAR FAULTLESS 

On the musical side the package is near 
faultless and with the much improved 
printing and of cuurse the incredible 
Media Madness option BAPPro2 is with- 
out doubt the hottest item in both the 
sequencing and multimedia markets. 

It's true that you'll need a bell of a

but to be fair that's the case with ail the

Mix Maestro 

Although not a new feature 
automated mixing is a sure 
sign of a modern power 
sequencing package and as you’d expect 
form software in the £20 0+ bracket, 
B£PPra£! isn't found warning when it comes 
So the mixdqwn. 

Aside from offering simple control 
change information within the tracks them- 
selves, Mix Maestro provides real-time pan 
and volume control which in effect mean 
the window operates just like a automated 
mixing desk but on-screen rather than in 
rhe studio. 

Like any decent mixing desk, track 
groupings can be assigned to make the 
process simpler - in this case four, so For 
example percussion grail ps, strings, brass 



or whatever can be locked together and 
thereby faded up and down as a complete 
unit. 

In addition panning f$ again ail dona via

click and move the mouse *o send the

Footsteps could pan From speaker to

growing crescendo oF percussion - during 
which you simply sii back and watch 
the automated sliders do all the hard 
work. 

Even better still, various mixes can be 
saved either to the clipboard or disk for 
later comparison or the inevitable remix - a 

feature worth even more then a pair 
of six-inch platforms on the dance 
scene. 



As you’d expect from ihe 
title, it’s here where the 
track window is revealed. 
This area has already been explained ear- 
lier so it’s sale to skip it and move on to the 
last two elements, in the window section.. 



Although recording is well 
catered for in ihe track win- 
dow the Record option offers 
the useFul ability to filter out unwanted or per- 
haps unnecessary Midi information by allow*

Transport control 



Even though transport con- 
trol is offered within the 
track window and via a 


pop-up mini transport, this foll-scaie version 
adds ail the whistles and bells in the Form 


of icons which automatically jump the 
sequence to any one of the 12 Rag posi- 
tions while also allowing access to the 
punch-in and loop optfons. 

in. addition you also have full time dis- 
play in both measures and SMPTE plus ihe 
present tempo settings and an invaluable 
half and Ihtee-quaner time playback option 
which makes tricky recording much easier 
by temporarily slowing the sequencer - 
and iheieby the record process - without 
the need to adjust the overall tempo oi the

Hard drive 
horrors 



Ezi 


P 


After being an AMO Plus owner for over a year I decided 
that it was time to upgrade my system, and have pur- 
chased an A] 200 with 1 20Mb hard drive. 

Mow that 1 have a hard drive I wish to use the thing, 
■ind it is only now dial I realise how tew Amiga games 
«ire not capable of being installed on this much more con- 
. enient medium. 

The software houses may well reply with the gripe 
that it Ls the piracy problem which leaves them no option 
but lo opt for ocHdisk protection, hut this protection has 
often been accused of damaging floppy driven by forcing 
them to make very irregular disk accesses. 

It is in my view criminal behaviour to distribute a 
product which they know is likely, with repeated use, to 
damage the purchaser's computer system. 

Phis is totally unacceptable. Owners of PC compati- 
bles, where piracy is though! (o be 50 copies for each 
original, do n<.rt have to put up with this sort of treatment 
and it is about time that software publishing house? were 
brought to book for this treatment of Amiga owners, 

From now on, I will not spend hard-earned cash if the 
program will not install on hard: drive, and if other 


Amiga owners were to follow- my 
example the publishing houses 
would be forced to take notice 
and change their current 
policy. 

Nigel Spence, Lmton^m-Ous€ 

You fofltw put your finger on n problem utfrick has confronted a 
growing number of Amiga owners nnj which, despite regularly 
attracting criticism from renders such as yourself the software 
companies seem determined ft? rgMiirt'. 

Le f sitae it, on-disk copu protection is a bout as effective as a 
chocolate teaspoon. From the lists of cracked games we receive 
now and again from anonymous hackers, it is dear that the oast 
majority of popular games con and will he cracked and snapped 
almost as soon as they are released. 

It begins to seem strange that although the ajfhrttrc cmnpa- 
nks have S3t'iT7? by UtHfet profectron jfcr years ns the only effee- 
tree method for combating piracy, they still suffer as much from 
tin : software thirties despite the fact that copy protection is zznzL' 
much more sophisticated than it used hi be. 

'fltts m itself should Ex' enough to emwbtte f/rern that to airni 




on fighting a losing batik at the cost 
of upsetting a growing section of the 
user base is in the long nm suidddL 

The ultimate insult is when a game oh 
the Amiga will nrt mstalf on hard drive despite 
the fact that the PC version of the same game 
dm. 

There haue been several recent examples of tilts, 
amt the apparent difference hetivem Amiga and PC owners rn tire 
eyes of th e games companies - one is a potential thief, the other 
isn't - is probably the most insulting and patronising aspect of the 
whole copyprotection debitte 


Old fogies abandoned 


Disk helper 

Being new To the Amiga, or any other computer come to that. I'm really grateful 
thal your CoverDjsks have been including items which help lo educate my chi I- 
dren, the Fun School programs for example. 

Now to help educate me! Could you run a lutorial on how I can get the individual 
programs off the Cover Disks and on to a spare disk which will self boot? 

Richard Nichofls. Newton Abbott 

IVe plan to run an Amiga DOS series tor beginners soon which wilt be aimed at 
new users and attempt to take them from the first basic stops to creating auto- 
booting disks and other practical tasks, so keep your eyes peeled. 

For the moment, try copying a CoverDlsk, deleting everything oft it apart from 
the Fun School module , then dragging the Fur r School icon from another disk into 
the same window as the first module. This might involve you in several disk 
swaps, ftirt should be the easiest way to gather the three modules together on one 
disk . 


i hj i of seven or eight Amiga magazines in 
Mew Zealand, A miga Computing is the only 
one which gives value for money, even if if 
does cost S! 6 (about £535) a time. 

Being a games type person, I found 
your Absolute Beginners section ideal for 
getting more in depth advice, and found f 
could "repair" some of my non-booting 
disks. The CoverDtsk is grout too, espe- 
ctalEv Cvbemebx (hr level 62 and 596,452 
points on for size), but my one gripe is that 
both the disk and the magazine seem to he 
veiy biased towards Workbench 2.04 and 
above, 

1 only have Workbench 1.3 and was 

* 

wondering if you could keep it: M/M? 

Oh yeah, when you ship out demos 
such as the Home Accounts 2 disk, maybe 
■m extra month before the timebomb acti- 
vated would be a good idea. 

We pick up our December 1992 issue in 
mid February 1993, so we can't try pro- 
grams like this for a full calendar month. 


That's it, I r ve had my moan. Keep up the 
great magazine- 

fate & Yvmte Horn , Nriv Zealand 

I'm sorry that you think m T re biased against 
Workbench 1.3, fajf the fact is that it hasn't 
been supplied with any Amiga other Urn the 
CUFV for about 18 months in our mam raider 
base, the UK and Europe. Since the release 
of the A500 Plus, Workbench L3 has 
been superseded by versions 2.f?, 2iJ4, 2 . 3 , 
sand 3,0, 

Our ^bsoEuld. 1 Beginners series, as you 
probably kmw r mass pitched at faif/r 1.3 stud 
2.04 risers, fad as all new Amjyiz cm?mrs for 
flfltfT ti yea r 1 heme, been 2.04 ur 1.0 users, it is 
highly unlikely dial wt or any other Amiga 
magazine will have the space to carer all three 
visions of the operating system. 

We have never missed an opportunity for 
urging ns jwtffly people as possible to upgrade 
lo Hie latest Derating system, especially those 
with tiny UtfrieiiS uses for their Amigas, and 


we won't rwzss if now, Workbench LI is 
dead, long live Workbench 2/3 tub, oh - Edh 
Your ti&rrcem over the timebomM demo is 
one that tw store, which is why export copies 
[i f the Maine Accounts 2 disk had an extra 
month of life granted to them. However , we 
didn't count orr our magazines tomg trims* 


ported (o New Zealand on some sort of 
BoolitHean Giant Sea SrtniJ rather than hy 
more conventional - and faster - means. 

Poor showing? 

I recently visited the 7th International 
Computer Show in London and have a 
few comments to make about it. 

Firstly, Lm surprised that AC them- 
selves didn't have more of a showing than 
they did. I think that you should have had 
all the products you sell on show as some 
of them were not sold by any other stand 
in the show. 

I don't think you did yourselves justice 
by having just a few back issues for sate 
and an advice desk. The gam? chosen for 
the challenge wasn't exactly brilliant 
either, but that's just my opinion. It may 
ho that there w^ere more products available

Name that tune 


Having read in the April issue of Computing about your 

views and recommendations on the music side of the Amiga, I 
was intrigued to read about the CoverDLsk music. The article said 
that "when you'v? got some tunes you are truly 
proud of, why not send them to Amiga Co?r.rpNfirr£ for the 
CoverDisk?*' 

I way wondering what sort of music you accept and what con- 
ditions or rules you make for people who send music in, I hav** 
spent a large amount of time making music and [ would be grate- 
tul if you could give me the necessary information, 

Ddnrjfrn Warner., Harrow 


IVi? will consider my type of rtf jisic, from acid house to classical P for 
inclusion n?z the CouerDisk. The only pr^eijuisitc is quality. 

Rules we use are i/ttf usual musk copyright laws, sc complete rip-offs 
of recent songs arc out, ns are 6omjjf sequences of samples from ftlms T 
videos , cr CDs. 

Of course, original music is always the besl r and though a ireJ/ pre- 
sented and produced fair uninspiring piece cm sneak err, we always pre- 
fer a reader's awn work 

This aspect of the CoverDisk js, after ail , deigned for the thousands 
of musk-makmg Amiga mr-wrs whose creations might otherwise never 
see the light of day.

in the first two days as I went on the 
Sunday* It so, you should been consistent 
over the three days. 

r 

Secondly, there were only mail order 
companies at the show except tor the 
Acorn, Atari, and Virtual Reality stands, 
whereas I think companies such as 
Commodore should have been repre- 
senfced. Also, the show could have been 
spread out a bit more, as it was fairly 
cramped despite the apparent abundance 
of sp^ce in the rest of the hall. 

However, it's not all whinging. It was 
good to see so many mail order outlets 
slashing their prices for the show. I picked 
up some Sound blaster speakers for C25 
which was pretty good. The cost of admis- 
sion was also low at only £4 for students, 
and all in all I had a good day, seeing 
some products running which l had never 
seen before. 

I would Like to pass on some advice to 
people considering the next show. Do 
check your products before coming away 
from the show if possible. 1 he speakers 3 
bought had a faulty 33mm plug, but luck- 
ily a friend of mine was able to fix it for 

i* 

me. The headphones were also missing 
but this wasn't a major problem. 

1 do have one question. Where can I, get 
the addresses of the stand holders? 1 
would like to contact a company called 
Connect International and also a stand 
which was offering a cleaning solution for 
spectacles which was right in the comer, 
Sceff Wright. Aberyshaytk 

The s/iotu organisers, Wssf mins ter 
Exhibitions, can he contacted lift 033-545 
3444. They should be able to provide addresses 
and phone numbers far any of the rx/tibifors 
present at the show. 

As for the Europress Enterprise stand, uv 
were offering; back issues, subscriptions, cur- 
rent magazines, technical advice and a gaming 
challenge - If there ht35 a stand of the ^tat 1 
offering more for the money [for me didn't

I'm sorry you didn’t approve of Sensible 
Soccer os a choice for tmr Gunter challenge, 
but aw had to km a popular, recent game 
with the potential for good two-player compe- 
tition, and we could only choose one game. 

Your advice to buyers at computer shows is 
sound and m would urge anyone to follow it, 
if only because returning faulty equipment fti 
u company half my across the country js so 
mud* more hassle than doing it at the s/tffu?

Double 

trouble 

1 have refrained Irom buying your 
magazine recently as I object to 
paying lor double CoverCiska which 
I do not wanl. 

Looking at my present colled i on, 
there are hardly any thal are in regu 
lar use. A Sot of them need other 
files to run or request disks which 
are not included, or simply Sail 10 
load or run. so much so Shat I have 
decided to make a stand before the 
front page breaks up under She 
strain of all Itie disks stuck to it. 

1 dad think that Prolexl was going 
So be useful, but have found it more 
hassle than it is worth, 1 still cannot 
prim out a half page letter wilhouS it 
scrolling to the bottom of the page 
and tripping the Paper Out switch, 
despite marking out a block and 
asking it lo print block. 

The time taken for me to get lo 
grips with Pretext was eating Into 
other activities and as l usually 
need a word processor only for w ril- 
ing Setters . then Ed is perfectly ade- 
quate and using aliases from the 
Shell enables me to quickly set mar- 
gins, prinl sly le, and so on. 

If your policy of extra Cover Disks 
and price rises results in improved 
sales figures, then good luck lo you, I 
but lo do that you need to sell an ! 
extra two to make up ior my lost 
purchase each mcmlh T 

Q H Jones, Leicester 

I'm sorry you don't think our double 1 
disk issues arc good va/ue lor 
money and that you are having 
trouble with Pretext, hut we can 't he 
nil things to all men every month. 

indeed, parity because we don 't 
like to hike t he price of the maga- 
zine foe often and partly because 
double disks are very expensive to 
publish these days, we are 
presently putting our special offers 
, on a single disk. 

This will please those like you 
who don t want to pay the extra tor 
another disk, but may annoy people 
ivho like to see as many shareware 
utilities as possible crammed onto 
our CoverDisk , 

We ivr// then receive letters from 
enraged readers who way to rather 
see the latest virus killer than a 
commercial spreadsheet package, 
tor instance, and the debate wilt 
swing round again, 

fn the end. whichever approach 
satisfies the greatest number of 
readers will win ouf. so keep Jho* _ e 
teffers coming.

DTP ■ 



e Sieve it or not Professional 
Page has boon with us since 
1987 in one form or another, 
=md boy has it changed over those five 
■ ears! Blit then again, the Amigas that it 
'■.ms on have changed significantly too. 

Now comes Professional Page 4.0 to 
-ike advantage of the new AC A chips and 
put yet more publishing power on your 
..esktop, 

hut AG A compatibility is just a small 
7 of the new features which have been 
ranked into Professional Page 4.0, There is 
5 teo support for a wide range of graphics 
and text formats, improved font and page 
management more text styles and Genies, 
pattern fills, custom magnification and 
zdenty more, all of which justifiably 
• e serve the new program revision 
clumber 

FOUR DISKS 

Another departure is that Professional 
Page 4 is now r only accessible from bard 
driver-equipped Amigas, though this was, 
l suppose, inevitable. With four disks 
Packed full of LHA'd archives there's little 
chance that floppy disk users would have 
been very productive {or even happy) 
continually swapping disks. 

floppy u.sers can always find other 
solutions,, such as sticking with 
Professional Page 3 or PageSetftr i, bur its 
“ecoming increasingly evident that hard 
drives arc now* a more essentidil part ol 
H'nous Amiga life than ever. 

I've been using Professional Page 4's 


predecessor, Professional Page 3, for quite 
some time, so Pm very familiar with it, but 
['m afraid I can't make any comparisons 
with Soft Logiks PageStream 2 , which is 
Professional Page's only serious rival, as 
I’ve never used it 

But from conversations with users of 
both packages it seems that most a re 
polarised either one way or the other, and 
likely to remain so. 

There are quite a few nice touches in 
Professional Page 4. In addition to sup- 
porting AGA graphics (for 256-eolour, 
near photographic quality images 
on-screen) possibly one of the best addi- 
tions is its new ability to set up kerning 
pairs tor a font, which means that com- 
mon letter pairs such as T and o and A 
and V can be tucked together correctly, 
instead of retying on the old kerning 
method to .space the lei ten* out according 
to just one distance setting, which wasn't 
particularly successful. 

Now it is possible to adjust any pair of 
letters you wish, in any font, and save the 
new spacing* so that they will always be 
uh^d each tame the font is kerned. 

What's more, the kerning pair 
requester is very flexible and easy to use 
and letters can be aligned simply by drag- 
ging them with the mouse. iVew pairs can 
be entered simply by typing them in. The 
result - much more professions [-looking 
text. 

Another thing that struck me was that at 
Iri* t Pm^Jussiona] Page has the ability to add 
shadowing to fettering as a style, rather

than as a duplicate set ol text in a different 
colour. * 

OK, there's presently no adjustment for 
where the shadow is placed, but its a start. 
And now it's p^sible to properly outline 
letters and have their faces filled with a 
different colour (or even pattern] - some- 
thing which previously required a fiddly 
trip to Pro Draw. 

Two mare new sty les - Superscript and 
Subscript - have also been incorporated. 

Patterns, and shadows are something 
which PageSctter (Professional Pages little 
cousinp) has had tor yea rs-, so it's a bit of a 
relief that Professional Page 4 now has 


them as well. Their inclusion is welcome 
bemuse they add another creative tool to 
the DIP designer'!; collection and letters, 
boxes and drawn shapes can all be pat- 
tern-filled. 

The only snag is that any modified pat- 
terns cannot be directly saved and recalled 
for later use, though they will be saved with 
document files (but not page*), so at least 
they 'll return the next time you load the 
document. 

Cold Disk have also finally got around 
to incorporating irregular text flow around 
clip art and EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) 



A new version of the original Amiga DTP 
package. Professional Page, is now 
upon us. Gary Whitley takes a look

graphics, again another vital addition, 
which has been far too long in arriving. 

Another new feature which may not get 
the use it deserves is the Paragraph Indent 
function, making for easy setting of nor- 
mally indented or hanging paragraphs, 
and for adjusting the width of the indent 
itself. Alt selected tent will then be auto- 
matically adjusted at every paragraph 
break 

Previously if you needed to shuttle 
pages around in a document, Professional 
Page had you using a numerical requester. 
Mow there's an kon-based Page Sorter 
which miniaturises each page and displays 

them all in a window. 

Pages can be re-ordered simply by 
dragging them to a new position, which 
makes DTP life a lot easier - and you can 
even get a rough idea of how the final dtx- 

uiruerLt will balance up. 

I'm not sure exactly who the Stick-i.hr 
Notes feature is aimed it, but l gue^s it 
must be useful to someone. It works very 
simply - click on the yellow bar in the tooh 
box and a smalt yellow box appear*. Type

addressing mure than one printer at a time 
with more than nine print jioh- Since I only 
have one printer I can only assume it works 

QIC. 

A remaining major omission is that 
Professional Tage still has no text squash 
and stretch abilities - meaning thiit the 
widLh/height ratio is still maintained when 
text is resized an d, short of a visit to 
Protossional Draw, there is as yet no way of 
making even the most basic of height ai.d 
width-only changes to 

text. 

If r like me, you cus-

assigns r lhen you could 
be in for an unpleasant 
shock if you are upgrad- 
ing to Professional Page 4- 
When E first tried 
installing the program 
neither the PageGenies 
nor the Text and Graphic 
Filters were properly 
installed and the program 
was not updated from the 
version of Professional 
Page % which waft already or my hard drive 
- instead a new drawer was created for the 
new program. 

The installation really caused me a lot of 
trouble and it took me a couple or days and 
some detective work to finally figure out 

what the problem was. 

It turned out that the Instai! program 
was looking to see if and wh ere PPage was 
assigned - but as my 
Assigns were slightly 
different to what the 
Installer wanted it disre- 
garded everything and 
went its own sweet way. 
Hence the problems.

This all means less visits to a graphics

easier access to lots more image data 


text in tbt new font - so 
if vou don't like what 
you see you can. pro- 
view others until you are happy- It's * 
small touch, but it's a nice one. 

The Graphics Editor holds some initial 
promise - especially for AGA users - until 
you find out that it is only used toe editing 
bitmaps and the maximum number of 
colours it can manage is just 32, regard It** 
of chip set design' 

Certainly, it's useful if you dun t have 
Deluxe Paint or another bitmap graphics 
program but for most users it will probably 
Tiot last too long on the hard drive, though 
it does have the hut-link advantage of 
being able to send and receive images 
directly to and from Professional Page 4. 

There are two other additions which l 
was unable to use - fAlSload and 
ProSpool. FAlSload is described as being 
able to convert fonts bought directly from 
Agfa (presumably Intel I i fonts) into 
Compugraphie fonts understand able by 

Professional Page- 

Great, l thought, 1 can convert my Agfa 
Video fonts to Com pug rap hie fonts. 
Wrong’ FAlSload wouldn't recognise the

font - so long as ttw supplied Fir 
Manager software is used to convc- j 
it to a lormal which the program ca 
understand. 

With hundreds of fonts out be-

just wonder why Gold Disk didn t imple-

AC continues to keep its finger 
firmly on the pulse of the 
ever<hanging world 
o f the Amiga 


F irst up comes perhaps the prime 
example of evolutionary soft- 
ware in the form of TVFaint, a 
I program which still holds the title as the 
I Amiga's premier 24-bit paint package 
r ^en though it's been around almost as 
1 rig as the Amiga's very first graphics 

I cards. 

Now in v2,0 x the quest for the ultimate 
-4-bit pointing environment is almost 
I 'mplete, but as ever it don't come cheap 
" especially if you're the proud owner of a 
Harlequin, 

However there is a slight glimmer of 
lope for the financially hard pressed 
Harlequin owners courtesy of a £U>0 
upgrade offer, but a 1 as fo r any no w 
Investors the Harlequin version means a 
pretty bleak fiscal outlook even though 
p* package has been reduced from a 
wart -stopping £900 to a miserly £64K?. 

THE ULTIMATE 

Although the ACS board is widely 
regarded as the ultimate in commercial 
I hardware, such a figure is still pretty hard 
t accept when lesser boards such as the 
A Video happily retail at about the same 
f rice for the board with IV Faint thrown 
* M no extra expense. 

However it's very unlikely that v2.0 

■ J nr 

* 41 be part of the aftwmen boned budget 
h-nJJe, If we can leave the financial con- 
**:.= ints of the Harlequin and TV Paint 
nation aside, the fact remains that

of let s say 1,024 x 1,024 and then select 
either 74(1, 832 or 91 0 x 576 interlaced or 
otherwise as the working area using the 
numeric keypad to scroll around the screen 
at will. 

At though this may no| seem exactly 
earth-shattering, the option to scroll can be 
a real timesavyr given that you have suffi- 
cient RAM to handle the image, and of 
course if RAM is a problem the big edit - 
alias hard disk image storage - still awaits 
to save the day. 

Another dramatic improvement comes 
in the form of a mu ch-imp roved magnifier 
which at last has detached itself from the 
control panel — in older versions this meant 
that using the magnifier meant obscuring 
large sections of the image with either the 
magnifier Window or the control panel

with the two working together you have 
arguably the ultimate Amiga-based 
graphics System. 

No doubt the most striking physical 
change has been the ubiquitous dongle 
which in this version has thankfully and 
finally migrated to the joystick port rather 
than being stuck into the external disk 
drive port. 

This not only makes an external drive 
accessible but also means compatibility 
with the A4CKM). 

Vet another AG A -friendly addition is 
the addition of Workbench 3.0- style mul- 
tiple window S which means several 
requesters can be left on-screen ra ih £r 
than having to reactivate them every time 
minor change become necessary, 

Although seemingly unspectacular, 
this small change can speed up the experi- 
mentation process tenfold. On a more 


dramatic note, scrollable screens have 
been added so at last it F s not necessary to 
open a big edit file every lime a non-stan- 
dard file Size is req u ired. 

For example*, you can specify an image

usually requiring cure °r the other to be 
shunted off and on screen as and when 
required. Now however everything has 
changed and the magnifier appears within 
its own window which can he moved, and 
resized just like a standard Workbench 
window. Better still it can be used to zoom 
right out to show images that are larger 

than the screen area. 

Along with resizing and zoom, 
placement has been improved with arrow 
gadgets for minor adjustments or alterna- 
tively a small hand icon can be applied to 
produce a placement rectangle attached to 
the mouse which when clicked on-si icon 
instantly updates the zoom window with 
the new location. 

Aside from the improved interface and 
therefore speed the organic feel of the soft- 
ware has been enhanced immensely. As 
UPV freehand artist will tell you, the major 
problem with the transition from real 
world art to computer-generated images is 
the loss in feel that pen on paper provides. 

In an attempt to compensate, TV Paint 
2,(1 takes full advantage of pressure-sensi- 
tive tablets and indeed pressure in general. 
Obviouslv not everyone can at f < rrd sto te-of- 
the-att pressure-sensitive hardware but if 
the money is available it would be well 


spent, Whether or not a tablet is at hand the 
program can still express the touch ol the 
artist at the controls. For those without a 
tablet, adding feeling can be pretty basic as 
the software can only apply preset pressure 
values at the beginning and end of a stroke, 
moving between the two levels as the 
stroke is applied- 

This new attention to feel can be 
enhanced further courtesy of two new air- 
brush effects entitled chalk and pencil. Hie 
names pretty much speak for themselves 
but the effect when combined with pres- 
sure can produce startling results. 

DIFFERENT NOZZLES 

Both of these new painting options 
await in the airbrush requester, with all 
three sharing an improved spline control 
allowing different nozzles to be fitted to 
any one of the three brush types. 

As before, the size and power of the 
brush can also he defined in percentages 
and tested in a small window at the bottom 
of the requester. 

It's fairly obvious that TecSoft, the cre- 
ators of TVPaint, have had a long hard look 
over their shoulder during the redesign 
and picked up a few tips from the other 
contenders in the 24-bit paint marker such 
as OpalPaint, which offers scrollable dis- 
play and effects such as chalk and pencil as 
part of its repertoire for some time. 

As well as simply painting with the new' 
brushes, cutting has also been added and 
as a result defining brash transparency is a 
dream. Once a brush is ait from the can- 
vas, simply adjusting the power of the air- 
brush defines the overall density of the 
brush when stamped - and of course pres- 



tfjntftPWl Iff 
action ffiEfAJ 

on ipecd 


sure control can also be applied. Although 
a big improvement, better brash manage- 
ment doesn't stop there, In feet TVPaint 2.0 
is to the best of my knowledge the only 24- 
bit paint package to offer classic DPaint 
perspective to brushes, 

Just like its predecessor, the twisting and 
turning of the brash is all handled by the 
numeric keypad with a DPaint style bound- 
ing box showing the transition of the 
brashes orientation in real time, 

HIGH POINTS 

Although packed with improvements, 
this has to be one of the program's high 
points which in one stroke will remov e 
hours of tedious image processing from the 
creative process, In short its the finishing 
touch tf> what is becoming a perfect it 
slightly overpriced package. As well as 


basic artistic modifications, ARexx is 
playing a bigger role with much bet 
Interaction between the package and t 
target AFcxx scripts with on-screen e vi - 
rtually sending relative data to the u 
program, 

Finally we've arrived at the final 
long-awaited improvements, namely a 
eranctf limit for flood fill operations pill? 
auto-resize function within the VI 
requester which re-scales the image to 
the screen - something which irritat 
many professional usem in the past. 

Well that's about it’ All very good ne

ADPro goes rollin' on 


In keeping with this month's trend of expensive software, 
we'll continue our quest with ADPro2.2, Ihe latest incarna- 
tion of ASDG's workhbeaiing image processing software. 

After installing the new version, the biggest surprise on 
tre*t-up is the interface itself which has forsaken the old 
style layout and adopted Ihe MorphPlus look - no doubt In 
an attempt to standardise operation for those users who 
are lucky enough to own both MorphPlus end ADPro, 
However uniformity isn’t the only reason for the new 
look as many of the features previously only available m 
MorphPlus are now within the reach ol ADPro owners. 

The aforementioned additions primanly involve display 
of the rendered data opening with monitor selection 
whether it be PAL. NTSC.VGA or DFLT - alias your 
default Workbench monitor - AGA compatibility in action. 
Assuming the correct monitor is in place, the next job is 
to choose from one of the eight available dithering meth- 
ods which now include Sm Ord and Lg Ord - each ol 
which were only previously on offer within MorphPlus, 

In addition to dither selection, both the new modes and 
the Random dither can be further enhanced thanks to a 
new dithering amount requester which allows the level of 
effect to be set from anything from 0 to 256. 

On the load and save side, things are pretty much the 
same as before with the exceptions being an improved 
Vtab and loader plus and YUVN import as standard Or 
Ihe save side only one addition appears in the fo f n of an 
OpalVision saver. 

Moving on to the operators, OpalVision makes another 
appearance with an OpalPaint operator which auto-loads 


the OpalPaint program complete with the Haw 
image data from ADPro waiting on the 
OpalPaint edit screen 

After any tweaks and edits are complete, 
quitting OpalPaint immediately produces a 
prompt enquiring ri the changes should be 
reflected within ADPro. Next up in the now 
operators list comes a variation on the warp 

operator entitled collapsa. 

As Ihe name suggests, ii collapses the 
image towards the centre of a (Wh able circle 
with an optional blur effect ava^ible to soften 
the overall effect The idea is to provide 
instant caricatures, 

Displace Pixel comes next and unlike most 
operators is only at it& best in combination 
wilh another ADPro option, namely composi- 
tion. When trie two are brought together huly impressive 

dissolves aw&ii. 

Steve Tibbet - an Amiga programmer already tamous 
lor tils X series ot utilities - adds trie next operator entitled 
Intensity Range which generates a 256-level histogram ol 
the image which can then be (rimmed to remove erro- 
neous data or perhaps brighten or darken the image - n 
good lip is to save using the temp saver before you begin 
10 experiment,

PUBLISHING 





Ben Pointer demonstrates that for a very reasonable 
outlay you could be producing desktop-published 
pages to rival the quality of this one you’re reading! 



A 


Imo-st 3 1 3 professional desktop 
publishers ply their trade on 
Macintosh computers, and have 


done since desktop publishing was 
invented. 

Even a small Mac-based DTP system is 
going to set you back a few thousand 
pounds. Those who can't quite afford ,H the 
best" are almost always directed towards 
buying FC-bjsed systems, where both the 
required hardware and the software are 
cheaper. 

Can I tell you a quick story? A publish- 
ing firm I know well recently wanted to 
move from, traditional publishing to desk- 
top publishing. 

They brought in a firm of consultant* 
who told them what they needed and 
gave them an estimate for 65OJW0 based 
around Macintosh equipment. For lhat all 


they were getting was a couple of comput- 
ers, a large networked hard disk, a scan- 
ner, high resolution laser printer and 
software. 

So thev brought in another firm of con- 
sultants, who got the eo*t down to £20,000 
using PC-based equipment. 

Now this publishing firm is also a 
printer and dues a lot of work for me. 
They knew my stuff was desktop pub- 
fished, so thev called me to ask what 1 
used. 

N Oh? What's an Amiga?" 

Using Amigas, the setup they wanted 
would have cost about the same as the 
FC-bssed system, hut I did quickly show 
them how they could build two high-pow- 
ered Amiga D1 P workstations for under 
£4,1X10 each, workstations that could pro- 
duce publications indistinguishable from 


anything produced on die Mac, 

This gave them food for thought, and a 
year later they 3 re stlU ihinking, 

But you don’t have to spend L4,IX1Q to 
produce professionally quality publica- 
tions on the Amiga - it can be done fm far 
less. 

Take one cheap Amiga. An A 1200 
would be an idea! foundation to build 
upon because it has a Easter processor than 
earlier "low-end" Ami gas, but any old 
Amiga will do. 

Why is a faster processor better 7 
Because many of the functions performed 
internally by desktop publishing pro- 
gram s, are highly complex and tan take a 
while to complete. A faster processor 
means vou won't have to stare at the dock 

m 

or "sleep v'" pointer for so long, If you are 
publishing to deadlines, time spent drum- 


ming your fingers is money down il 
drain,. 

Next, get a bard drive. It doesn't hj- 
to be a fast hard drive or a big hard dm 
although as it is an important piece 
equipment it might be better lo steer ct 
of "bargains". Why do you need a bar 
drive? 

For several reasons. Firstly for spe- 
again. You 'll be loading and saving El 
all the time, and these files can get quil 
Large, so a hard drive will cut down 
waiting time- Then there's the question 
typefaces, 

Having hundreds of them spre^ 
across lots of floppy disks could make ai 
particular face difficult to find. Havii 
them all in one place on the hard dm 
makes life very much easier. Same thii 
for dip art and the many templates yi

Bui if you are prepared to suit out a 
floppy filing system for your vari- 
r«W so that any particular file can he 
\&h[ to hand quickly,, and if you can 
with slower loading and saving times, 
you can get by without a hard drive. 
You Can't, however, get by without 
Itnory. fust about everything to do 
desktop publishing eats memory 
it's going out of fash ton. The 
'lute minimum amount vou need 
1Mb. 

W ilh this you'll be able to produce sim- 
Jocumcnts of one or two pages, pro- 
led you don't go too crazy with 
tflics and typefaces. A more comfort- 
ngure is 4Mb, The more memory,. the

The nest step is software. Choosing

You have to keep in mind that desktop

pared to learn how- to use it 

There are a few word processors that 
come very close to being DTP programs. 
They work like word processors, which 
makes them quicker to learn how to use,, 
but thev contain manv DTP features like 

I s f 

the ability to import pictures, draw lines 
and boxes, use many different scalable 

id 

typefaces, formal text into columns, and 
so on. 

So you don't have to- buy a ' DTP"' 
program in order to publish from 
the desktop, one of ihe so-called 
"document processors'' may be more up 


your street. 

The two mo&l important features you 
need to look for are typeface support and 
graphics support Typefaces and pictures 
are the materials with which the desktop 
publisher ,, 'paiuis" , r so if the program you 
choose limits you in any way as to what 
you can and can't do with typefaces and 
pictures, yuur creativity V»‘:i beta ged- 

Ideally you want some kind of support 
for PostScript Type 1 typefaces - either 
direct support or some means to convert 
this format of typeface into that used by 
your program - because Type 1 faces are 


the desktop publishing "standard ", 

Compu graphic Intellifont support is 
a iso useful because this is the Amiga's 
"standard" scalable typeface format. What 
you don't want is "bitmap" font support. 
Amiga bitmap fonts are not of a high 
enough quality for desktop publishing, 
not even on a shoestring. 

As far as pictures are concerned you'll 
want to be able to import standard IFF- 
ILBM files. But these aie bitmaps, and just 
like bihnap fonts they will print nut with 


The essential guide to what to buy 


There's nol much OTP software and 
Hardware that you can call *cheap'\ so 
what follows Is a discussion of the 
easl expensive options, keeping in 
mind Shat quality is impo riant to desk- 
top publishing. Alas, there are no PD 
solutions for DTP programs, only for 
typefaces and clip art. 

PublisHing software 

01 (he so-called “document processors 
on I he market only Word worth 2 and 
Final Copy II are worth investigating, Bui 
as both of ihese packages cost twice as 
much as PageSetlerS, which is a dedi- 
cated desktop publisher that cornea wilh 
•in integrated wordprocesspr and painting 
program, If doesn't make much sense to 
consider anything else. 

PageSellerS is essentially a "little 
brother" to Ihe famous Professional 
Pago. I| directly supports Compugraphic 
scalable typefaces, and comes with a util- 
ity that can convert PostScript Type 1 
laces info Compugraphic format 

it will import any IFF- 1 LB M graphic, 
and also supports the Pro Draw clip for- 
mal of struclured drawing. 

Professional Page is being sold for just 
over twice the pnee of PageSetter3 r bu! 
you do need a hard drive. If you don’t 
have a hard drive and you want more 
power, then you must turn to 
PageStream, which is more expensive 
again. 

Typefaces and clip art 

Jusl about every PD library has many 
disks full ol dip art and PostScript Type 1 


and Compugraphic typefaoo$. For the 
most pan these disks are poorly com- 
piled olten With corrupt or mining files 
on them, and you will have to sort out the 
mess youfseli. 

A few libra ries take more care, for 
which they generally charge a little bit 
more. 

Almost all the PD typefaces you'll 
come across started life on the Macintosh 
and have been converted by various peo- 
ple to MS-DOS format files, otter which 
various other peopte have collected Ihem 
on lo Amiga lormatted disks, 

A lot of ihem have charade rs missing 
from the character set, corrupted charao 
ters, only upper ease characiers and 
numbers punctuation marks missing* no 
kerning information, and so or and so 
forth. Like a lot ol ofher PD material, it 
isn't up to prolessional stand atds. but 
then it costs peanuls in comparison. 

If you want to “fix" any of these dodgy 
typefaces you'll need TypoSmilh. which 
costs FI 35. 

But ihere are plenty of typefaces that 
are good enough to use as they come, 
and at about £10 per 10D typefaces you 
can t really complain. 

Clip art usually comes In ail her IFF- 
ILBM formal, which any DTP package 
can handle, or llluslrator Format, which 
only PageStream (at the time of writing) 
will import. There are a few PD ProDraw 
clip art disks, bul nothing to get excited 
about. 

On Ihe commercial front there are 
thousands ol professional typefaces 
available in eilber PostScript Type 1 or 


Compugraphic Formal, but expect to pay 
between £30 and £50 per typeface, 
sometimes more. 

And femembsr r Italic and Bold ver- 
sions of a type Face are separa te type- 
laces. so a full “type family" could cosl 
you a few hundred pounds. 

There are cheaper options ( like E M 
Compulergraphic's range of Computer 
Safari typefaces, which work out to 
between £3 and £5 each. These are 
mainly "lancy” typefaces, not the sort 
you'd publish a long body of lex! in. bul 
shey are Of a much higher quality than P D 
equivalents. 

Commercial clip art is thin on Ihe 
ground and generally quite expensive tor 
what you get. In the end you aro probably 
better of! with a hand scanner and a clip 
art "source" book. 

Hand scanners 

There are three choices lor hand scan- 
ners: ihe DaataScan Pro p the Power 
Scanner and Ihe AlfiaScan scanner 

DaataScan Pro is the cheapest and 
easiest to use, but lacks some ot the 
more powerful features lhai the olhers 
have. The AllaScan scanner comes with 
the superb Touch-Up software, which, as 
well as being scanning software, is a sod 
□I black-and-white DPaiut-eum-ProDraw. 

It's brilliant lor working with line art 
scans and produces excellent greyscales 
from scans of photographs. However, 
because of lis many powerful features, it 
can take quite a while lo learn how io 
u$e. 

The Power Scanner is a good comp no 


m^se between performance and price, ft 
produces excellent greyscales and has a 
fair number of drawing fools for touch ing- 
up and working on line art scans.. 


If you want fo enhance the graphics out- 
put from your printer then the choice of 
software is between TurboPrinl and 
Studio, 

Both wilf enable you to alter para me- 
ters like dilher patterns, brightness, con- 
trast and gamma, and have whatever 
program is doing She printing use those 
settings. 

They are about the same price (£50), 
but the difference is that TurboPrinl uses 
its nwn lyce □! non- standard printer driver 
whereas Studio uses 100 per cent 
Am ga- compatible printer drivers. 

Studio can also output in up to 256 
greyscales dr 16.7 million colours 
whereas TurboPrinl is limited to the nor- 
mal Amiga restrictions ol ?6 greyscales 
and 4,096 colours. 

Sludio comes with drivers that enable 
it to work with all models Of DeskJet (and 
compatibles) including the 5QDC and 
55GG, all LaserJets (and compatibles) 
including the new 400/600dpi models, 
and most Epson-campattbla 24- pin and 
49-pin dot-matrix printers, including a 
special made for ihe popular Star SJ-46 
bubble jet. 

Canon bub bln jets and laser printers 
are nol catered For by Studio because 
Ihere is a separate “Canon-Studio" version 
of the program (actually commissioned by 
Canpn) availabse al a cheaper price.

So for graphics with smooth edges (like 
the scalable typefaces’) you 'll want support

a cheap hand scanner.

grams., ■‘clippings" from newspapers and 
magazines and cartoons don't require a 
big flatbed scanner. You can get compara-

Which one? Well* 24- pins really aren't 
good enough for printing your creative

quite a few small inkjet printers available 
for about the same price as 24-pin dot- 
matrix printers. 

But beware, the word "inkjet" doesn't 
mean "high resolution".; there are some 
cheap inkjets that are the same low resolu- 
tion as 9-pin dot-matrix printed. Look for 
300 nr 360 dpi resolution, nothing less is 
good enough. 

You want colour? Teh, difficult, You

printouts, particularly if they contain 
colours or shades of grey, can be enhanced 
by special printing software. 

Keep in nund that no printer software 
is going in be able lo turn a mediocre 
printer into a good, one, but you can turn a 
good one into a great ocw - it's certainly 
possible using special printer software to 
get better looking output from a cheap 
inkjet than from an expensive laser 
printer. 

So, adding up the cost of all the hard- 
ware and software discussed above, not 
including (he cost of the Amiga (which I 
assume you already have) we've spent 
less than £1.000 and have built a DTP 
workstation from which you can produce 
documents that will hold their own with 
the best. 

Take away the cost of the hard 
drive and the hand scanner which 
aren't absolutely essential, and it's 
less than £500 - basically the cost of 
the software, some memory, a few 
typefaces, lots of blank floppy disks, and 
the printer.

M ost journalUtB can't type 
properly. Nt» r 'ti$ true, and 
it's the case from the lowlu 
t-t reporter to editors in Fleet Street. 
Those high enough don’t worry or don't 
care, and those not quite there yet **re too 
busy struggling up the ladder to take 
lowly typing lessons. 

All of which is, of course,, pig-headed 
stupidity. As the majority of us know, 
once you've used a keyboard for any 
length of time at ail, you speed up consid- 
erably and reach a stage where you can 
easily forget that you're physically typing 
when you re using a program requiring 
extensive keyboard use. The trouble is 
that Lf you attempt to up your speed r mis- 
takes creep in with alarming regularity. 

Which is where the catchily titled 
Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing conics in. 
Whether or not the stylish woman on the 

r 

cover of the bos is actually Mavis, she Is 
currently in the homes of over a million 
people worldwide in her previous incar- 
nation, And this new r updated version 
kicks set to continue this impressive on- 
going lesson, 

The program has two aims - to increase 
vour typing speed, and to improve your 
accuracy. It has a myriad of features and 
ptions, explained both in the very useful 
tutorial guide to the package and as you 
are actually using the lessons. 

Indeed, if never asks you to do any- 
thing without explaining exactly why - a 

Word games 

In the Arcade section, you race 
against a merciless driver, but this is 
a racing game with a difference. 
Much like childrens' education soft- 
ware, Mavis Beacon utilises the 
fun to play while you learn' 1 ethos. 

And judging by the number of 
grown adults I've seen In this office 
plonking pssudo-Fuzzy Felt cartoon 
bears onto backdrops with every 
happy click of the mouse, the con- 
cept indeed Is as applicable to adults 
as to younger people, 

Basically you go ahead or behind 
depending upon - you've guessed It 
- Ehe speed and accuracy of your typ- 
I n g r speed showing on the 
speedometer and accuracy repre- 
sented on the RPM counter on your 
dashboard. 



great quasher of bored frustration (your 
personal level of which you can set, inei- 
dentallvr depending on your degree of 
interest And your temper!). 

Before you can. begin, the program 
starts by asking you for a few preliminar- 
ies. As well as the usual name, it wants to 
know how old you are (presumably for 
choosing relevant pieces of text lor you to 
practice on) and what your level of 
expertise is. 

Choose Beginner and you'll he taught 
which fingers are used to type what and 
generally lund- led into the lessons. I 
started on Intermediate, which drops the 
"which keys, which fingers" bit but is still 
bearably paced. 

PRECIOUS TIME 

Most of the typing is done In the 
Classroom. This ^s represented on-screen 
by a keyboard, and a piece of "paper" on 
which some sample text will appear. Von 
must type underneath die sample exactly 
wha! is written , including all the correct 
spacing* and so on. 

You have access to the usual delete 
functions should you make any mistakes, 
but you're looking for a respectable 
wmrds-per-minute count, so corrections 
eat away valuable seconds 

a 

At the end of a lesson, you're told your 
words-per^minule, your level of accuracy, 
and given a comment from Mavis - you 
can even control how talkative the w oman 
is! 

The Workshop is similar to the 
Classroom, except there are meters and 
gauges showing you all the time how 
you're doing. There's also a metronome 
tor stopping yourself getting earned away 
and making mistakes. 

All the text you practice ss sourced 
rather than written by the programmers, 
and includes what the manual describes 
as "fascinating passages" from the likes of 
the Guinness Book of Recoids- 

lt also seems to have an alarming ten- 
dency to contain letters which send your 
fingers flying all over the keyboard - not 
too surprising, really. New for ihis issue of 



Typing correctly will add speed and accuracy 
to any keyboard user's inputting sk/fls. Phil 
Morse stretches h/s pinkies over the latest 
incarnation of the world-famous Mows 
Beacon Teaches Typing tutorial package 


the software is the 10-Key (numeric key- 
pad) teacher, which is great for prospec- 
tive accountants or ambitious cashiers, but 
not so good for poor A 600 owners. There's 
a game tied into it too - a checkout with 
goods passing which you have tn type In 
as quickly as you can on the keypad. 

As far as monitoring your progress 
goes, as well as graphs showing exactly 
how well, key by key, you're getting on, 
you can get Mavis to take account of 
past lessons when advising a n«J comment- 
ing, and utilise this and more comprehen- 
sive statistics to customise vour own 

F 

lessons, realty testing where you. need 
practice. 

CONCLUSION 

This really is an impressive package.. 
It's clean, dear, colourful, intuitive end 
above all, one does not feel crippled using 
a computer to teach oneself typing r as you 
might suspect could happen. 

It's a tribute to the programmers that 
one can easily get lost in practising and 
come out a damn sight faster and mure 
accurate - a classic ease of using your 
computer as a means to an end. 

With the ability lo "save" multiple 
pupils, meaning lots of people can be 
recognised by the same copy of Ihe pro- 


gram on the same computer, and well 
thought-out touches - the ability to choose 
sparing after full stops, for instance - this 
tutor deserves to go on and teach another 
million willing pupils bow to type. 

Who knows, maybe behind closed 
doors somewhere there's even a journal ist 
typing to banish his ur her self from the 
dreaded "three-finger typist" 
svndrume!

If you've been tempted to get into ARexx 
programming but hove not known where to start, 
now is your opportunity , as Paul Overaa provides a 
lucid introduction to this useful language 


TUTORIAL! 


D espite t he fact that the ARexx language forms part 
of the Amiga’s operating system software, many 
Amiga users still do not use it 
Fart of the trouble, from the newcomer's viewpoint, has 
clearly been the Jack of beginner- level tutorial documenta- 
tion, and the purpose of this article is to hdp you take some 
important first steps. 

Its obviously not possible to deal with everything in a sin- 
cJe article, but Awugta does, of course, provide reg* 

-Lar more advanced help through its ARexx Insight pages 

J |»e page ] 26 ). 

What do you need to know about in order to jump on the 
\Rexx bandwagon? Il is an interpreted high-level program- 
ming language which shares with Basic «a number of impor- 
v-nt characteristics, including the fact that it is very easy to 
•.am, ARexx, like fki*ie r is also a convenient tool as far as 
pnagjam development is concerned. 

it ix possible to sit down at an Amiga, type a few lines of 
A flout code, execute them and see the results, make a few 
iunges, and immediately re-execute 
“ne program. If there are any bugs in 
■-our code, AReast will usually stop 
me program and fell you without the 
’‘Vstem crashing. 

Before you can run an AKex* pro- 
gram you need to have the language 
installed on your Amiga, This brings 
us to r3 piece of software called 
Rexxmjsi which is the part of the 
ARexx system that must be up and 
running before any ARexx program 
can be executed. Because of this, the 
RpufXmast command is usually added 
to (he startup-sequence, 

REXXMAST 

What foxes a lot of people about 
Refcxmast is that it run* 35 a back- 
ground process so there are no visi- 
ble indications that the program is 
active. Rexxmasl does, in fact, open a 
■*rnail window to introduce itself as it 
starts up, hut this window disap- 
pears after a few secundy- 

In reality Rexxmast, despite the 
absence of any visible signs, hangs 
around in memory waiting to exe- 
cute any ARexx programs that come 
along. 

Although Rexxmasl acts as 
^Rexx's "master controller’" it does 
not work completely alone. For rea- 
lms of efficiency much of ARexx has 
been implemented as a !H shared 
library” called rexxsyslib, and one of 
the finjf things that Rexxmasi does is 
to look In the current LIBS: directory 
ttj make sure its library is available. 

To create an ARexs program you 
use a text editor ARexx doesn't pro- 
ide a specialist editor because it has 
^n designed to work with ordinary 
.Ascii text files, the ones written by all 
conventional text editor 

You can use AmigaDOS's ED program, MEM ACS, or 
■-our favourite word processor providing it can create plain 
\soii text fih^ without embedded control characters. 

So to create an ARexx program you simply load your 
favourite text editor, type m the program, and save the text 
tile. From this moment your program will be ready to run. 

There are two basic ways in which ARexx may run its pro- 
grams. Firstly some other application may talk to ARexx and 
effectively say "please run this ARexx program for me'". Such 
program* could be ARexx scripts you have written or they

■ TUTORIAL 


► 

could be scripts provided as pari of some 
other package, 

Either way, these program?; are called 
ARexjt macros and they are used to add 
new facilities to some main applications 
program, such as a spreadsheet, database 
or word processor. 

It is, of course, also possible to create 
standalone A Rex* programs, that is ones 
which can be executed independently. In 
these cases a separate ARexx system com- 
mand called RX is needed to kick off the 
program , 

For this reason RX is usually placed in 
the Amiga's command (C:) directory so 
that it is available along with all of the 
other Amiga system commands.. To run a 
script file from a CLI /Shell window you 
just type RX followed by the program 
name, For instance; 

t> FK tEE-t.rtll 

would cause AKi?kx to load and run the 
program called test.rexx, It is not strictly 
necessary to type the .rexx filename exten- 
sion when running ARexx programs via 
the RX program because RX itself will, if it 
fails ro find the program name as given on 
the command line, re-try to find die pro- 
gram after automatically adding -rex* to 
the end of the name. 

Standalone ARexx programs are not, 
incidentally, required to have a -rexx 
name extension but it is a common prac- 
tide because it helps such sen pis to be 
identified from ARexx macros and pro- 
grams written in other languages. 

Macros, again by convention, tend to be 
given names which relate to the applica- 
tions program* that they Are used with, 

Let s assume then that you have 
Rexxmast up and running, have loaded 
vnur text editor, and are now ready to 
start programming. As you read through 
the following examples try typing them 
in, saving the text file, and then using the 
RX program to run them from a CLE/ Shell 
window; 

tjEiip'lfl+rm M t 

m 1 T^ss is IJf fi'rit 1 Reus E^pa^n 1 

ARexx programs must always start 
with a comment enclosed between /* and 
V character pains. Since a comment must 
he present, use it for something useful, 


Powerful extra fe 


VVh^t otee does ARexx offer? Well, lor 
starters it allows you to write Functions 
with their own local variables, offers a 
whole range of arilhmeiic/logic opera- 
lions and provides both simple and com- 
pound variables which allow arrays and 
other dale structures to be created. 

Error-trapping and in-huiil interactive 
tracing via a separate trace window is 
available (making it possible to keep pro- 
gram (race messages well away from 
normal program output) as well as inter- 
rupt mechanisms, powerful string han- 
dling and string parsing functions, 

There's no way we can even begin to 
list all its facilities let alone give examples 
of them but here's one more snapshot of 
the language . 

ARexx. like Basic, provides easy lo 

such as the name of the program. 

Say is a keyword which is roughly 
equivalent to Basics Print statement and 
in this case I've used le to print some static 
text (delimited by single or double 
quotes). 

The ARexx equivalent of the Basic 
Input statement, which can be used lo col- 
lect some input from a u^er, is Parse Puli, 
and so if we wanted the program to ask 
for, and print, the user's name we would 
do if like this: 

I* Eisipiti.mx - another riiDle ARers 
pnjgrgi *i‘ 

uy ’Hhit is yc ur mi t 
p* ff Et pyLL nan 
tvy r-m 

Despite some general similarities between 
Basic and ARexx it's obvious that differ- 
ences do exist. To start with even though 
we are dealing with text strings we have 
not had to explicitly indicate that the 
ARexx variable name ss used to hold a ted 
string. 

The reason for this is that A Rex* vari- 
ables are essentially fypdeft and so do nol 
have to be declared. If in fact and you 
wrote these ARexx statements; 

i=U 

H2 

iiy itj 

ARexx would know that it was dealing

use loop facilities and iho Fprogram shown 
above Examples, rexx, u&es a loop to col- 
lect input items from the- user in order to 
identity the location of an item stored in a 
compound variable. 

There's not the space to go into detail 

wish numbers an d would provide 49 as 
the answer. If therefore you wished to 
write an ARexx program that converted 
feet into inches you could do it like this: 

j* EuipleS.rm - cervrti feet to inches 

V 

sif "Npi 1 any fee t 1 

pine p y LI net 

sa? ‘Ihli Is ! fett*l 2 1 inchN ! 

ARexx does not however always react in 
the way you might expect Consider these 
two programs: 

hnpiLi4.TtXK *f 
1 H e L 1. 0 r 

/* E:iBipLtS. rtsx *1 
lay HeLLq 

Exaniple4.re*x prints the Hello text as 
written but with Ex&mpteb.re** the result 
is that the uppercase HELLO is produced., 
Why? it's because quotes were not placed 
around Ji Hello' r so ARexx assumed that 
Hello was a variable rather than a text 
string.. 

Now you might think that since ARexx 
has regarded Hello as a variable, and since 
thi.s variable was not initialised (ie explic- 
itly set to any initial value) that ARexx 
would either report some form of error 
saying that an uninitialised variable had 
been used, or would possibly print a null 
string, ie nothing. 

Fn fact ARexx docs something com- 





aniuLa . tebra = 'iebm e f g u r Ugi 
and thiy cannot fly 1 

cptinns prnipt ' Uhftt iftft at anilaL d-:

ghoul how compound variables work sc 
just am the program and think about fhc- 
potontial benefits Of a language 1 1- a ' 
allows you lo use lexi string variables to 
idanlify elements in array type struc 
tures! 



initialises the variable to the name ot thi 
variable itself! ARexx uses uppercase 
characters for its keywords, variables and 
Other labels, so the program's Hello var 
able, as far as ARexx is concerned r is the 
variable HELLO. 

You can easily prove that AKex\ .s 
treating Hello as a variable by setting i: ■ 
another value and redisplaying its cen» 
tents. for instance, the program: 

jf* tKiipliti.riKi *1 
53 f H ilia 

HeLLo' =, R fteu Tpit String 1 
say HtLlfl 

would produce as output the tie x 1 
"HELLO" followed by J 'A New Text 
String"! 

A Res* always looks at the contents ot 
its variables jiust prior to using them ar. 1 
providing those contents are valid for the 
type of operation being performed A Re* 
wilL carry mil the specified operation. 

It cannot however do the impossible 
and so l f r for example, you attempt ! 
earn/ out an arithmetic operation on a text 
string ARexx will stop your program wiri 
an "arithmetic conversion" e rror message 

These errors can easily occur if you 
inadvertently fail to explicitly initialise \ 
variable which i# subsequently used i 
hold a number: 

'* -xanpl't? . texi - a [DiBcn slip *J 
say x+2 

Because x v/as not explicitly initialise 
ARexx set it to the uppercase string X 
Since adding two to a text String is not a 
valid operation ARexx reports an error. 

There is of course fcir more to ARex* 
than wc've mentioned in this article 
including a whole range of in-built func- 
tions. Powerful external function librarii- 
which can add Intuition window link- 
extra maths functions and so on are 
available and the language itself has 
whole range of other advanced goodies 1 . 
offer, 

For now though we've just got time i«

My diffcrefU from any language you've 
ever seen. 

There is believe it or not, an area of 
ARexx programming that involves pro- 
gram statements that have no meaning to 
ARexx [(self which has arisen because of 
the way A Rex* behaves when finding 
such statements. 

In short it assumes I hat they are com- 
mands intended for another application 
and transmits them to a program whose 
destination has been determined by speci- 
fying a current host address (this is a pub- 
lic message port managed by the hutrt 
application). 

All programs that provide ARexx 
interfaces set up their own, uniquely 
named, ports and it is through these enti- 
ties that data gets passed. ARjesoc contains 
an Address command that allows the cur- 
rent host address lo be specified. 

Why is it useful to have this type of 
inter-program communication? One rea- 


son is that it allows vou to create ARexx 

j 

macro programs for adding extra facilities 
to other programs (thereby increasing 
their power). 

More to the point you can do it, if you 
learn how to write your own macros, in a 
wav which suits vonr needs! Here's a $im- 

j j 

pie example. I he SAS test editor provides 

an ARexx command ret. 

Some of the commands mimic menu 
operations; EM for instance selects block 
Menu operations and since a UCk com- 
mand refers to character x, transmitting 
EM UCE Ls like selecting End in the Block 
Menu, and transmitting EM UCB like 
selecting Beginning. 

The commands mentioned above just 
cause the editor to do a particular ph but 
other commands, such as the GL (get line 
number) and GT (get text line) produce 
results that can be sent back to an ARexx 
macro. 

In this case it is the responsibility of the 
macro code to collect those results and the 


SAS editor uses the standard convention 
of providing results in such a way that 
ARexx can place them in its RESULT vari- 
able (the A Rex a OPTIONS RESULTS 
instruction is used to force ARexx to look 
for these results). 

f'u ask the editor to send the current 
tine of text to a macro we might use this 
type of code; 

option results- 
■GT 1 

t Ei:t = r« 541 L t 

Used in con^nctiori with the Block Menu 
commands even these simple editor com- 
mands can achieve a lot. Vou might for 
instance use a loop to read tines from a 
block of text into a variable and add line 
numbers to them in such a way that 
empty lines get disregarded. 

Such a macro could be tied to an Amiga 
function key so that if, for example, I had 
marked out this text block;

tion key in order to intelligently number

Packages like Pro write use similar ideas 
when tying macros to function keys but 
the commands themselves are of course 

totally different to those used bv the SAS 

■ ■ 

editor! 

In fact it is just this sort of variation that 
con fuses many ARexx newcomers - they 
think that a package's ARexx interface 
facilities should somehow follow Aftexx's 



Let's get some historical stuff out of the 
way r ARexx Is the Amiga version of 
REXX a programming language -to 
gped a lithe Over ten years- ago by l| 
chap called Mike Cowiishawat IBM. 

To cut a long story short Bill Hawe-i- 
took the REXX language definition a* 
produced an Amiga version called 
ARexx. Five years later Commodore 
added their support by including ARexx 
as pars of the Workbench 2 system 
software. 

syntax rules. They don't - the syntax d 
the commands rent to other programs 
little or nothing to do with ARexx its. 
and in fact all AKvx* really needs to knoid 
when it encounters commands an^ 
decides to transmit them to an extei 
host is where those external command* 
should be sent. 

The important point about all of this a 
(hat every ARexx product will in tact luwej 
its own specialised set of commands 
which it only will understand. More toft 
point, the extent of the facilities offered 
wi 1 1 depend on what the originator of fiw 
product decided to include. 

The bottom line is that being told dial 
piece of software has an ARexx interface 
means nothing unless you know exact h 
what facilities the developer has provide 
How do you know what types of ARexa 
goodies will be offered with parti cul 
packages? 

You have to consult the manuals of the 
products concerned. Meed less to say ih:* 
information will not mean that much 
unless you arc reasonably ARexx com mu 
motions- literate. This is one very goo.,t 
reason for jumping on the ARexx band 
wagon ds renin as possible!

This book is aimed at the more ambitious ARexx program- 
mer artf, since you will not find the usual introductory-style 
lists ot ARexx instructions and function definitions, access to 
other ARexx literature is essential. 

Content-wise the book scores hi^Jily and there are good 
accounts of all the standard topics including file handling, the 
use of ARexx 's powerful string functions and the use oi 
ARexx's sophisticated string parsing facilities. 

There is also a good chapter on using ARexx and 
PostScript, and a useful appendix on using ARexx with Art 
Department Professional. There ane a great many examples 
and as an added bonus the author makes a point of gelling 
across lots of useful programming style tips. 

Not for complete beginners but an excel lent hook for com- 
petenl coders moving to ARexx from other languages! For 
details contact Premie rVision on 071-274 4407.

This recently published hook is 
my own ARexx ottering 'and is split into three 
main sectrons. Part one provides a tutonal introduction tc; 
the languages part two covers the ARexx communications 
issues Irom a pure "user's" viewpoint; and part three tackles 
some of the underlying technical issues, 

The First two parts (which constitute the bulk of the book 
are aimed at anyone, including the begin n-er, who wants to 
loam aboul AFlexx. 

Part three, which has been included for the benefit ot 
more experienced programmers, provides details of bolt 
how the ARexx communications mechanisms work and how 
ARexx interfaces can be added to your own programs. For

night-clubbing in New York. 

Even trekking in Tibet, or A 
pottering around the 
Pyramids. Literally, the 
world is your oyster ! 

It could be a holiday 
for one. Or for a whole - 

family. Just as you wish 
- providing the total cost 
comes to no more than £3,000.

fantastic invitation? Simply by completing 
the coupon opposite and handing it in to

Amiga Computing June 1993 


This month’s brace of sil-back-and- 
walches takas us flrsl to Japan, and 
the Japanlme Motion Picture from 
Pathfinder PD. After a quite amusing 
dig at the Amstrad CPC computer 
range in its opening segment, it 
moves on to a 5 tides how/ani matron 
featuring Ihe characters from, pre- 
sumably, a comic or cartoon. They're 


ell well drawn, colourful, and pre- 
sented originally and engagingly. 

The camera moves from one part of 
a still to another, people turn their 
heads to look at you, and generally it’s 
been constructed to try and relieve the 
tedium of watching completely static 
slide after completely static slide. 

The characters are coherent in 


Atom

Paul Matthews 

This multimedia presentation, which 
comes on two disks and really does need 
two drives to run with any degree of flu- 
idity, is an educational look at ihe devel- 
opment of atomic physics, from the early 
19th century pioneer* who laid down the 
foundations to the current day, taking in 
the horrors of Hiroshima - among other 
things - on the way. 

Very well presented, with a couple of 
atoms spinning around an electron a* a lit- 


accuracy. There are pictures of the pio- 
neers, diagrams, even an animated 
nuclear explosion, and it's generally 
extremely well put together. 

In some place* there are a lew too 
many pages of plain text, but overall this 
is a bold and successful attempt to bring 
an involved subject closer to the pupil. 

As the program takes no moral stance 
{something which would be all too easy to 
do considering the tens of thousands who 
died at Hiroshima) It couldn't be accused 
of bias in either direction, so would be a 
good educational tool for schools and 
colleges.

Arcade Classics 2 

Carl Harper 

Vit as prolificaliy populated with oldies 
is the first volume, this disk does never- 
theless contain some gems, FOn- prizes for 
messing what Squamhlc is, and this Ver- 
sion has the added attraction of a musical 
sound track composed by Tesjo Ktrmumen 
■I OctaMtilJ-duihnrmg fame. 

Rather crudely put together despite 
that, it manages to retain some of the feel 
ol the original horizontal scroller, 

The same can be said of Donkey Kong 
:fd this disk's version of Frogger - both 
are actually poorer than the arcade origi- 
fiaJ$ (if my memory serves me well) yet 
both bring back memories of those days 
when games were, well, simple.,. 

Tables Test 

Charles Denison 

i lands up if you can guess what this one's 
ik mt! We ail have to learn them at some 
-tage, and this program might just make it 
easier for any young children in vour 
;fe to get through those dreaded tables 
tests. 

it's a simple, colourful educational 
game - the computer asks the child which 
table is to be tested, and then poses a 
"umber of questions- simple What is 5 x 
•T" types, which, depending upon the 
answer given, elidt a sunny, balloon-filled 
summer scene, complete with jolly music 
and sound effects, or alternatively a dark 
screen peppered with ugly frogs 


and finished off with the "Quack quack!" 
from Radio Ts ''Quack quack oops!" jin- 
gle - punishment indeed! 

I'm not sure if this would hold a, 
child's attention for long enough to do 
Some real teaching, but it'd certainly be 
great for last-night revision before a tables 
test. 

A little more variety in what is to be 

■ 

questioned would be nice, as would a 
slightly more comprehensive statistics,, 
but as if stands it's a useful li ttle tutor. 


S S Teague 

This is a really clever little game. The best

simple idea, and nowhere docs this phi-

Basically there are two baseball bats, 
made a tittle cuter by the addition of a 
pair of eyes on each, which you have to 
use to hit balLs - of which there are plenty 
dotted around - into nets. 

If there is only one player, the com- 
putLT will take over the spare* bat, but this 
game really should be played with two. 

It's akin to the kind of frantic games 
you see on children's action shows, 
involving lots of frantic shouting and bar- 
rels of laughter - or at least it was when 
we played il! 

The net a move up and down e.ich side 
of the screen to makes things a little awk- 
ward for you, and there are the usual 
selection of power-ups and bonuses to 
help stop you getting bored-

this is one of the best Amos games I've 
seen in quite a ivhtle. 


Supersound 

v3.2 

KBE Software 

This packed (99 per cent full} disk con- 
tains what is claimed to be the very best 
PD sampling software available for the 
Amiga. It certainly looks thorough before 
you"ve even loaded it, with a proper 
installation program and documentation. 

It continues to be impressive after load- 
ing, ditching the polished, sleek but ulti- 
mately counter-productive flashiness of 
programs such as AM AS, and instead pre- 
senting a nomonsen sl' interface packed 
with useful features and arranged in as 
uncluttered and functional way as 
possible. 

All the usual features are there - you 
can sample in mono or stereo, load and 
save samples in a variety of formats, enjoy 
full cut and paste editing - even keep 
track of how many hours you've been 
bunched over your monitor fine-tuning 
that elusive sample by virtue of the clock 
and alarm! 

It has not one but two effects menus, 
positively bristling with goodies such as 
an effect called Metallic and another (no 
guesses what this one dews) called Bass 
Boost, There are more effects here

Two music disks particularly stood out this month,. fcoth 
very different tram each ether 

Let's start on the mellower side of things, with 
Quadriga Acoustic Silence from Pathfinder PD, This 
disk, which is very nrcely presented, starts with a menu 
which - among other manly superfluous options - allows 
you to choose which of the six tunes contained therein 
you vv«sh to listen to. 

The quality o! presentation shines through in such 
things as bars to tell you how long until a file is 
dearchived and ready to play, or the timer telling you, 
CD-style, how much of the track currently playing is left, 
and even a cheeky little Garfield whose appearance 
frankly baffles mo. but there you have it. 

The sound quality is well up to standard, £nd the 
tunes themselves - although far irgm original - are well 
put together and pleasant, it decidedly ’computery" in 
their feel.

It's a great program, but remember, 
unless you simply want to mess around 
with previously recorded samples, you're 
going to need some sampling hardware to 
plug into your Amiga. 

Sitllj at this price you're probably best 
buying a sampler ((hey always come with 
their own software) and trying 
Supersound v3v2 against the software sup- 
plied - you might just find yourself 
switching.

On the plus side, there are some ami

with some practice and a modicum ol talent, be able to

They'd also have voted “Yes!" lor the next demo, and in 
fact they probably did,, bui the mechanical onslaught of 
Continental Tech Dance ~ Mayday Resistance {Bus 
Slop PD) droned out all their mumblings good and proper. 

Musically this disk contains deep, uncompromising 
European lech no, as fresh as it is exciting, and of an 


extremely high standard. The author compares his pro- 
gram to Jesus on Es. the now maHegendaiy dance dou- 
ble-disk demo, and the similarity is certainly there 
although this is arguably even better. 

The graphics are pretty stunning - all last-moving, slro- 
boscopic and generally mind-altering stuff. There an: 
touches of humanily in there too (dancers, the way the 
boat is indicated as being about to change tempo on- 
screen) - what more do you warn? 

It's well mixed, the graphics are excellent, so gel s

Drive rip-off 


Recently, i accidentally danv 
aged the internal floppy drive on 
my four-month old Amiga AGOD. 
md as the damage was caused by myseT 
repair is not covered by the warranty 



scheme. 

I have telephoned numerous dealers 
fof a replacement but have been informed 


fiat one is not available. 

My biggest shock was ye! to com-e, 
however, when 1 telephoned the 
r.ommodofe spares desk Id be to Id a 
e placement was available from them for 
1181.66 plus VAT I could not afford this 
>jm and on principle wouldn’t pay nearly 
£214 for a drive when the compute? itself 
B retasling lor about £250. 

Unless you,, your readers, o t your 
advertisers can help, I am slunk wilh a 
lundant computer. 


K Shaw Wigan 


CovetDtik in my drive, double dick on the 
disk icon, the jj i frag the Maxipitm drawer lean 
to the hard drive partition in which you'd tike 
to store it, 

Qnff this is accomplished, odd the fbBomng 
Assign statement to your startup-sequence: 

ASSIGN RUIPLUI: DHDr 

where we assume that DHO: is the partition 
into \drich the Mnxipkn drawer has fust bm 
dfagged ObviouMy, if you dragged ri! info a 
partition called \\ J QRKt r the itssf^i would go 
something like; 

A S3 1 5ft. KMIRftNft? mil 

just make sure that MAXIPLAN4; is the 
directory or partition containing the Mnxiplan

You seem to have bean told a 
toad of old tosh. The dove fined 
to toe A6Q0 is usually a standard 
GNnon 3.5in of exactly the same type as 
that Med to toe rest of /be range with the 
■ voeptior l of toe A400Q. 

This means that you can buy a replace- 
ment floppy from toe usual sources and fit 
t yourself in five minutes flat. 

Total cost should be a lot less than you 


ape been quoted, a typical example 
‘ceing the Power Computing replacement

Instalment plan 


Q 


After buying issue 56 of your 
excellent magazine II was very 
pleased to see Maxi plan 4 on the 
CovexDisk- 1 already had a very old copy 
of the program which, annoyingly, 
niildnT work on my accelerated A5DD 
Plus., 


I eagerly booted up ready lo install the 
newer version 4, up came Workbench, in 
•went Maxiplan, Wha| r no install script?

Baffled by the PCMCIA cards 


Q 


I'm very confused about the use of PCMCIA cards on 
the CDTV. After reading your reply lo D Made ley in 
issue 57 I phoned Commodore Gamiany. I reached 
iheir technical hotline and they confirmed your answer - yes, the 
credit card slot on the CDTV is a standard PCMCIA slot. 


This in mind I phoned Silica and ordered a 4Mb card After 
receiving the card it did nol fit into my CDTV's slot because it was 
too thick at the back, so I contacted Silica again and they tofo me 
that the COTV can only use Personal Memory Cards and CDTV 
software must be specifically written to support them, so they 
refunded my money, 

I phoned Commodore again and this time I reached someone 
whg claimed to be responsible for the technical aspects of the 


CDTV. She told me that the credit card slot on the CDTV was 


developed earlier than the PCMCIA slot on the A6Q0 and there- 
fore couldn't use cards developed lor the A600. 

The only possibility to upgrade to more RAM was an internal 
expansion from a company in Berlin which mats £250- 
However, a lew days ago I saw a 256k RAM card in a shop. II 
had the same connector as a PCMCIA card and the shopkeeper 
insisted that it would work with CDTV. Sadly, there was no way of 


testing it as he didn't have a CDTV. Please tell me if there is any 
way to get these PCMCIA cards to work on Ihe CDTV, 1 want lo 
upgrade to more memory and I don’t want to pay £250.

Having been wrongly informed that new CDTVs were 
being shipped with standard PCMCIA slots, we 
trudged off on a telephonic trek in search of the truth 
about CDTV, First stop Commodore, who seemed reticent about 
toe whole thing The technical department scratched their collec- 
tive heads for a while then confirmed that the CDTV slot is an old 


pre-j PCMCIA Fujitsu slot and has not been changed. 

Wext it was off to Fujitsu, and after going through two different 
offices and two of their btggesf dealers, the answer was that we 
were talking about an old formal which noone knew anything 
about As far as the outside world is concerned \ if its not 
PCMCIA . then it just isn Y kosher. 

Silica eventually furnished toe oniy positive help though you 
might find it a little expensive. The Personal Memoiy Cards for 
CDTV come to (wo flavours, 54k priced at € 75 and 256k for a

AMIGA COMPUTING ADVICE SERVICE 



I have an A500 Plus with GVF 
hard drive and until recently 1 
have been designing custom 
pointers changing default fonts, mucking 
about with the palette and so on using the 
Workbench 2.04 pref* programs. 
However,, every time I now load the 
palette, pointer, or WBPattem programs 1 
get a recoverable alert. 

If T boot from the original Workbench 
floppy I can load all the pref* programs 
from my hard drive. Do E have a problem 


with my .mart up -sequence, or have the 
recent changes that I have made to my 
DHC: Font* drawer had a detrimental 
effect? 

Oh, and in reply to John Gray of 
London in issue 58, if he places W as the 
line just prior to the Endcli command at 
the Hid of the starhip-s^uence, preceded 
immediately by the line:

Fattie returns 

Further to a letter in Ihe January i&sue, you say a Fatter Agnus chip is needed 
for an Amiga \o operate In the USA due lo the difference between PAL and 
NTSC. 

Does the A500 Plus have a Fatter Agnus fitted and it not hqw complicated would one 
be lo install? Would (here be any advantage in an A5CH3 Plus in fitting the Pro Agnus or 
Obese Agnus chip? Is the A 1200 PAL to NTSC compatible without the need of extra 
Chips? 

I have been wailing patiently for months to see this question answered in. magazine 
letters pages. 

W Ford [ Kim Dunoon 

Your wad appears to be over. The A50Q Plus i$ filled with Agnus chip number 
&372B, which is otherwise called Super Agnus and is superior to the Fatter 
Agnus chip found in older machines. 

There is therefore no need to install one or to bother with the Pro Agnus to as the 
tatter type of peripheral simply involves tiffing a Super Agnus and an extra o. odge of 
chip HAM, 

The advantage in having a Super Agnus is that ihe A500 Plus can address 2Mb ol 
chip RAM as opposed to the 1Mb limit of the Fatter Agnus. Chip RAM is the area which 
the custom chips store their data. As chip memory is thus Ihe only place in which sound 
and graphics can be stored, it is always a good idea to more of it. 

The A 1200 has an altogether new graphics chip called Alice , tyfoch is 32 -bit and is 
responsible tor many of the enhanced graphics to be found on AGA machines 




Monitor mayhem 

I recently bought an A12EX1, and 
borrowed a VGA monitor from a 
friend so that I could try out the 
screen modes I'd heard so much about. 
When 1 finally sorted out a connector, how- 
ever (and this took long enough), 3 was dis- 
appointfd to find that many of the screen 
mode* don't work. 

Why? Is il the monitor - an unbadged 
PC SVGA type - or the A1200? Can my 
third party monitor adapter be at fault? 

Kevin Gmecock f Norwich 

r Tbc VGA monitor you are using 
probably fas a mmwband width and 
syncs In only ii no mm? range of sig- 
nals. The VGA siaudardfits this, fort many qf (to 
Amiga's scram uio^s - and it has many more 
thin the PC - vary gmtiy fern the 31 -35kHz 
arm fri which most VGA signals cau befeund. 

For complete compatibility, the expensive 
Commodore monitor is a goal bet or you 
could hang on fit rone of the ihirdywly monitors 
Hjfticft should be appearing hlu'p?. easterner T for 
example, are releasing a range of AHfXFsperifk 
monitors, and o new range of Commodore multi* 
syncs is mi the uvto. 

If you persist with the VGA monitor for the 
moment try experimenting with the different 
monitor types found hr fto 1 EjfrasJrOrS 
torage/Monitors drawer. VCAJMulliscan is a 
good start, but there art' others which might yield 
better mult* with a bit of experimenting. 

CLI (again) 

Over the past few years since 
buying my WB13 A500, a few 
problems seem to crop up regu- 
larly, mainly when using the Q .1. 

First; do the examples in the PD C 
Manual EE compile using North C vl.3? 1 
have the original C Manual and was con- 
sidering getting the new version, hut 
Amiga nuts state in their catalogue disk that 
there are difficulties- compiling the exam- 
ples without Lattice/SAS C. 

Can you redirect output from a 
QJ/Shefl window loan existing CLL/Sheli 
window? 

Is ii possible lo put two command & on 
the same line, say, by using: 

Dir &?□: tCtrl-i (ntv Line] LD DFD; 

Thjs would be very helpful for certain

One thing that is quite pleasing is the Fad that Alien Breed 2 will be pri- 
marily developed fof 5 +iq A 1200 and cuhdown versions fev the AM0/6D0

This means that the game will be Gechnkcdly amazing, much mete so than 
anything ever piwously released by Teem 1 7. This wilt ultimately mean more 
colours, more enemies, more graphics, more sound died* and much more 
action, than ever before. 

It will be about three to taut times bigger than Alien Breed. The screenshots 
you can see ore some mods graphics - they're 128-colour backgrounds 

and ore usi □ small

U Basing a game el tfratefy on Ifie 
terrible F»rjt Worid War is a daring 
enlerpriie^ claims the instruction 
manual proudly. Quite a strange state- 
ment i thought r nal personally being 
able to depict any particular evidence erf 
derring-do in simply cashing in on one 
of the bloodiest conflicts the world has 
ever seen. 

IWi I revised where developer blue fiyte haul 
From,, ami was able to appreciate hKot a WW1 
strategy game b y 0 German company is indeed a 
risky ^ttura, 

The USA. is wd) known for its stout refusal to 
accept that the Vietnam War was anything but o 
■complete shambles, earning the country nothing 
-more ihoft tens of thousands of pensionable 
teenagers and woridwide h^nJkstion, and my ini- 


tial reaction to Historylme was thqt il was a simile* 
refute from the natives of fce Fatherland^ intenfl on 
justifying their failure in combt* as a successful 
contribution to the great patriotic rouse. 

6ui apparently not - ifs made perfectly dear 
right from the stort that the gam is precisely rfn c* r 
a game, end thd no attempt has been made to 
gloss over fat realities of whgt oduaKy look pfoce. 

So what did lake place then? Basically,, two 

iing parlies sp* 1 ^ the besl part

manner they saw Fit, Great; sounds 
good - pfeny of soap h-re to inie- 
gnate a few grisly scenes oF camoge, 
one would hove thought. fkrl again, 
no. 

Blue Byte bdiew? - and not ti»rea 
Hmably so - that of utmost impor- 


tance in an affair such as this is todioal planning 
and, above all, pijoymait. It is to Iris end the* they 
have devised Historyline in such a wgy os to he 
instwtly aecfissifck,, imwirrling cud educational. 

Dwelling not » much on the war, but on the 
gemtog aspect OS U daas, none of the campaigns 
in Hister^ine are exod recreations irf v+oi acteah 
ty took place, dhhough the basic atm obviously 
remains the some, AHer a gorgeously presented 


SET 


but lengthy intro whfah seems to narrate 
every event boding up to the war, cud 
decided os to whemer you wish to pit 
against a friend or the ever -wiling eo-ipifcr 
which side you wbh to represent), the game 
finally c*rives, and il is here where a pfaasan! 


pnse 0X1*1- 

Unlike most game* of this ilk, where the 
control Dphrxi eonsisb of a combination of 
dkfe and keyboard controls,. HI con be 
solely ty a single joystick, proving Blue By* 
ck]i m regarding its oaw al use. 

Two multi- scrolling maps make up the 
screen - one youn and! on* your oppon-*-' : 
which in tom combine to fenm a larger, 
map of the boil* arao. 

On every map each ride has its awn 
hold, the idea being to take up ocropanq 






maps Esr'& quite small, range of movement is 
extremely limited eorly on,, and it lobs many min 
ate before the gome begins to lake shape. V4«n 
the op nosing sides finally meet an am moled 
sequence accompanies each head-on botffla r all of 
which are well drown,, and « accompanied by 
realistic sound dfech 

At Fir Sil ihse seem like a nice addition, but as 
the game progresses I found them to be increasing- 
ly more tiresome, portiailqrly for ihose wiii singfe 
drive machines, which is the vast majority, 

The prsLilem is that when in extended battle 
mode - ihdl is fighting out Ate whcfa war - a huge 
amount of disk swapping is required, and pm on 
on AI 2CO, which is what \ used for the mosl pari 
of the ravimv, a single animated sequence can take 
ihree or four minutes to complete. 

Not only that, but as the gome progresses, a 
lew individual battles may he hiking place al once, 
meaning several minutes of nothing hut disk 
swopping- 

The animations con be 
dipped, once loaded, bui there 
is no action to toggle them cff r 
and the resulting tedium 


detracts bom the game in a big way. 
On some of the battlefields there 
are factories, in which you can 
rebuild or repair vehicles and 
weaponry. Depots cor, also be bu It, 
whkh on completion become cm extra 
J [.tro^nhokl that doesn't need to be 
tnptored. 

The depth in, and: tbou^tf behind 
Nisknylirw is undeniable, and it is 
presented in such a way os to bear art the pro- 
grammer* doim im it is one of the most accessi- 
ble gomes of 11s type, 

ll can virtually serve as a history lessor, in its 
awn right fhn-M to the massive intro and octtr 
siOiicJ m-gome snippets. Throughout its course the 
game concentrates beatify on skutegy and ladies 
and steen purposely away from the bloodshed of 
Awconftd 

A brave step - coromenduble too, sine® there 
are any number of gomes Oft the shelves which 
am easily quench ouf thirst lor gore. 

Much ol rhis gore is unnecessary though, 
whereas any bloody scenes in Historyline would 
simply serve as a stork reminder of reality, and 
leave the gomfr minus an element with then 
exclusion. 

This is not to soy that who! we have here is a 
half-hwted product, far horn it. The level of infer 0 
motion and depth of gomepfoy, topped off by 
excellent yaphics and atmospheric tones make for 


a real value-faf-money pockaeje. 

Due to its slew progression and tedious loading 
processes though , what could so easily have been 
m outelard^ng product instead finds itself standing 
shoulder to shoulder with the rest.

I t's been strange to watch the 
changes in certain types of gomes 
over tfra lost year, Flight rims espe- 
cially hove undergone o drastic 
shift in the way that the programmers 
construct the games, 

In the middle of I ash yea r I mode several joke} 
about fee laborious process of getting into a flight 
iims. Il was hopeless if you just wonted to have 
quick Hy about and shoot dawn a couple of 
pinner 

That aspect or facility no longer exists in 
rhit genre. They hove become progressively more 
strategic as the months haws gone on It is not 
uncommon lor you to he able to conlraf ground 
troops or artillery, and the attribute? of the staff 
with wham you fly the craft hove became more 
and more complex as time has gone on After a 
hard day at work you tWl want have to listen to 
your co'pilof s I ife aioryi 

There ire also different ways of getting around 
the problem? encountered when playing such 
gomes. Instead df there being o training mode for 
inexperienced pilots it is net u am a non br the 
gtpne to indude q simulutor - a simulator within 
□ simulator , ds rl were 

But the evdurion of the flight simulation isn't 
necessarily a bad thing, it's just the fad that wo 
hove fast the old style - the flying has become 
almost poriphertil to the gome, But enough of my 
moaning, \ shall hell you aboul G 17. 

To start with I was mast disappointed with the 
compatibility level I much prefer ta ploy flight 
tims on a last. occelwaled machine so I instaili-.: 
it on an A4000 - fee software did not like of all. 
So I installed it on on A1 500 with an 030 occeb 
erntor and il Ripped out again. 

hfext i tried on A30QG with an 030 accelerator 
and an<e again I hod no jay. I finally gave up 
and ran the game off disks on on A 1 200, 
encountering no trouble al alf. Still, it wot quite 
slow even on the A 1 200 which does not bode 

well br A500/600 users, 

You have control of on eight-man team who fly 
the aircraft. Each different man has o particular

job whether it be radio man or bomber. You 
don't have to control them oil at arty one time - 
you just have to assume different roles as and 
when needs dictate. They will quite happily get on 
with their jobs at other times. 

You con shoot down enemy planes from any 
of the gun turrets ard there is a setting to deter- 
mine the speed crt which the turrets move - obvi- 
ously planes built in

IFs a very person-

you have to choose 
your bomber, you 


have to choose the ortworl which goes on tta

After you hnve the plane sorted you can 
have a photo taken with you and you crew, 
Graphically it's very effective but it r s not 
much use! 

As with most other flight sims, you hove to

guns* Gory Roberts, the guy 
responsible for the conversion of 
John Madden's Football to the Amiga 
has been beavering away in o dark dun- 
geon to bring you Desert Strike. 

A massif hil on tho Mega Drive, I can already 
gitircmtee Desert Strike is going to lake ibe Amigo 
games world by storm, 

Hgw con I be so sure of this fad? Well, if is just 


simply brilliant. I could quite literally enthuse about

it's, my favourite game on the Wsgodrive, tx/l now 


starters fm probably biased because 


iKs out on the Amiga 1 can safety stick little broth- 
er's Mega Drive in the cupboard 

Desert Strike is excellent the hast thing since 
diced brood, the bed, the tops, the best game in 
the universe. Sllllarappp. Phew, I flipped out there 
for a second. 

HERE WE G0.<* 

Right m slort the review properly new, ifs just 
one of things I hod to get out of my system. ! 'll ask 
a question- What particular subject makes a good 
computer garnet 

If * <ea$y, The answer is war. Death and destmc 
Hon is what the kids want. Everyone loves a good 
war game. (fill some foreigners a>d then go and 
have your tea end go to bed. H'j just a bit of fun 
isn't il? 

It's recently beer reported that violent computer 
games influence how kids behove end react. 
Personally I think it's all a load of rubbish. The 
thing that influences kids to do what they do is real 
life. 

They see war* between nations, they soe peo- 
pie stealing co#s ond property, people taking and 
selling drugs, violence on the streets and racism 




Take control of a big chopper in this Gulf 
War arcade simulation, Saddam Hussein 
and Stormin' Norman are not included*,. 


□no semm among a whole list of other things I 
could mention. Kids ‘want to ad like otMlS- This, h 
the example being set to them by others. How do 
they see dl this tool is corrupting toe world? It's 
$g&y - they only have to watch the news on televi- 
sion ar read a newspaper, Computer games are 
just a scapegoat, so that people don't have to 
accept the truth about tha world we live in. 

Oh I was getting a bit serious there wasn't I? 
Whai was I talking about? Enr, I remember it was 
Desert Sir b- Dwarf Strike is about a return to the 


Gulf. Without warning a madman has mode htm 
self leader and threatened to start Armageddon. 

The mod man calls himself General Ki bo Da 
□nd looks nothing like Saddam, honest! Very little 
is known about him, although he has been known 
to watch Les Dennis on Family Fortunes and 


laugh. As I said before, completely and

mess of the convert ion and actually improved the 
game. 

h ust goes to show that ihp^ consoles aren t 


icJdter* ond features in comedy duo with Bobby 
Bail The Hydras are used far almasi everything 
dse except the big buildings. 

Tbe Hellfires are particulary impnesyve and can 
be used to blow up anything big or if you m c sodisi 
you can use them to obligate hdpfes enemy sol- 
diers, Yog con Hid between the weapons via a quick 
swift stab of the spacebar. 

One cf the mosl important features when pfeytng 
Deserl Strike is the mop option. You use the map to- 
call up information on campaijp targets. The mop 
also tells you where the fid, ammo. MJAs and tor- 
gets are and keeps o careful check on wher* the 
enemy is. 

Keeping 0 eyi on how modi foal ond ammo 
you've gci is essential if you want to be any ipod tJ 
Desert Strike - although I have to hold my hands ip 


everything they're tnxbd up to be and the Amiga 
can compete with them . 

Desert Strike is probably Electronic Art's finest 
moment since Populate. You ai-rndy know how l fed 
about the game, so what on corth are you waiting 
for? Go and get h and be emightenedr Ju$l

Of cp in tk sprawling rnttopoll* 

I hove very mixed feelings about 
trains. On several occasians r I've 
been more than happy la sit back 
in relative comfort, drinking a cup 
of funny tasting coffee and munching my 
way through a suspiciously plastic-like 
burger while a guy in a blue uniform 
takes me to London ar somewhere 
simitar 

This saves Hie hassle of driving to g pfoce grin:- : ■ 
and takes care of the even large’ and more expen- 
se Headache of finding a pfoce to part once you 
airive - so trains ore good, in iwt rasped. 

On the downside,, I live di reefy behind what was 
fomnefy m irduStffo railway line, now converted 
into the sa-relled Jurist attraction* of ftie East 
lanccdwe Steam Railway. 

At the time of writing this (Sunday afternoon at 
heme, in case unyone important is reading^ I con 
hcrdly hear myself think, mainly because there we 
between 80 and 100 people dtoltafing excitedly 
direefy below nry widow erwQihrg the arrival of the 
Flying Scotsman, an apparently very famous train 
which ihe managermit have hire# for a month 
This has been the cose every weekend for ihe Iasi 
three weeks, end I would just like- to say that if you 
ore one of those people who stopped you* cor in the 
middle or our rood, or tripled on my mum's rose- 
bush, or |u$t generally made a nuisance of yourself 
during 'his hallowed Flying Scotsman nertod, dwn 
you ought to get yourself a god-damn tit. There - I 
fee! better now. 

A-Train is brought to us by Maxis - those strata- 
i responsible fo * the epic Sim games lor 
ore toys' as they like to call them), end it 
would be yery easy to compare it to any d their 
previous products, so I won't, 

POWER PLAY 

The basic aims are pretty much fcHe same though 
- oops, ihere I go, a comparison afraafy - the idea 
being lhal you muU earn yourself as much power 
□rtd money as possible. 

Sporting the name it does r it's, a reasonable 
assumption that A-Train will contain fairly hefty 
tram-like overtones, but it isn't all railroading - in 
fad this b just one pari -of what is offeciivoly a 
muH-chdlenge game 

Of course it's important to create Oft etf ■ 
amt and wefi patronised rail network, but 
equally imporlont are developments 
around il “ industrial r housing and 
reef eation d. 

Without these, there would hi no 
point or attrodion in people travelling 
to o destination,, so die inc^6 ottroctive 
a location the better 

ApflftfIWfirte r houses, offices, sky- 
scrapers, golf courses and amusement 
porks al contribute to (he value and attrac- 
tion of e sito, and all give more reason for 
potential visitors. 

Gut these all need to be built first - 
therefore factories must be erected,

Vision Software claims this is the largest 
platformer ever developed for the Amiga. 
Jonathan Maddock takes charge of the 
He detector and investigates 


V ision Software are relatively 
unknown by anyone's stan- 
dards, but are already making 
big waves in The sea of 
Amiga gaming. Cast your minds back 
to November 1992 and Amiga 


Com p wring’ i Cover Disk, 

What wc 


was on that fabled CoverDisk i bear you 
ay? Well,, it wqi nothing more than Cyucrnetix, 
nuite simply rhe world's, grease if shareware 
shaoKenvup. 

Vision Software hod treated a modem day 
masterpiece - a Defender done with visually Stun- 
ning graphics and marvellous gumoploy.. 
Cybernetic could easily have fceon released at 
folk-pries utkJ made pots of cash. 

The year is now 1993 and som* dever person 
at Digital Marketing International I DM! lor short] 
snapped up the bays at Vision Software. Looted in 
a cupboard for seven months, they re-appeared, 
some disks clutched in their hands, Woody's 


World had been bom. 

Tbe lads at Vision had noticed that there were 
bads of platform games around, and that unfortu- 
nately many of them were rubbish. 

They decided to make the best plglformer the 
Amiga world hod ever seen, The ingredients were 
to be amcsinr: graphics, brilliant sounds but most 
of all unmatched playability 

One thing you notice about Woody's World is 
that ft's JMb Only, W increasingly popular move. 
Pgul and f?ad, she game's programmers and 
designers, commented on the decision 1o make 
Woody's World 1Mb: 

*Wa‘'ve decided la take the 1Mb Amigo stan- 
dard and Fit as much gcvne into this conflation 
as possible." 

They go on to say that: '’Without paying too 
much attention Id the current batch of Amiga plal- 
form games, wo ve tried to develop a unkf-r style 
in Woody's World, 

'From the graphics and music through to ihe

layoul of (he levels, all of our design 
decisions were aimed at creating an 
expansive unique game environment to 
challenge the Amiga gam* player." 

Woody s World features mere than 
60 levels to explore and each takes up 
6d serpent, ll also features over 20 
graphical styles, more than one hour of 
background music, super smooth 
scrolling and maisfis of secret rooms 
and hidden bonuses. 

The platform adventure is set in a 
mysterious land where six castles hove 
been overrun by menacing baddies. 

Woody, the hero, mv$J fid each cm- 
He of ils evil inhabitants ond free the 
land of all evil. 

Woody is not normal. During the 
plglfc rm fun and action he changes his 
idenlity more often than I've had hat 
dinnefs. Woody can change into Prince 
Woody who hu& the ability to ili Jb 
through gaps and kick hadcies or he 
can change into King Woody who can 
enter special rooms and access even 
more levels. 

We received a preview version of 
Woody's World and iFs almost finished 
except thnt it slill has a couple or bugs 
ond elements of gameplay ta tidy up 
before DM| release the product, 

Even (bough ir's the preview version I 
con tell that Woody's World is going to 
be a r* Amiga chart topper 

The reason ii iimple Ben, Gamer staff writer 
and boy genius, is not that fond of platform gurie& r 
but Woody's World has kept him captivated for 
□tmosl a full week 1 

This is unheard of in Gamer circles - the words 
Ben and platform just do not go together. I was so 
shocked ! had to go and lie down in a darkened 
roam, so you can see why I'm so sure il'-s going to 
be a classic 

Woody's World not Only ployt like a dream, 
but also looks like one with delghtU oanocn -like 
quality graphks displayed in 32 colours. The musk 



With a flask of stm Wa&dy changes into the prince. 
Hf can now slide fkreugh gaps -and kick The baddies 



Steam Castle - tit* first level. Find those chest* and progftto 
in the world's biggest Amiga platform game... *lh gutty 


\% dso ^ a very high standard and gently etc;-. 
around in the background while you waggle yo. 
joystick furiously. 

Rod ond Paul say they have created the biggs > 
and best Amiga platformer to date and 1 belie* 
them. Vision hove already made o name foe 
selves v»o Cybemalix, but Woody’s World is gt 
an?eed to shoot i>em up mto the big lime. 

ll wil be available on DMFs Global label in ihi 
next month or so aod *will coil you £25.99, to 
much So ask for ihe world's greote&s Amiga 
platformer

aliens. The game is 
actually more like 
ihe original Aliens 
than Alien 3 - 
The plot is very 
simple indeed; the 
alien si have taken 
aver the colony 
and iurned it into 
o breeding ground 
by ussng the prison- 
ers os hosts for alien eggs. 

Rlpley has to rescue the prisoners - by fwHing 
Itfiem out of their pain ond misery - ond waste oil 
the aliens. 

This is basically □ simple platform and blast- 
'envup, bul il works much better tkwr average 
vimly uocouseyOu con already relate to it. Whot 
Alien] has which mas! do not is atmosphere - and 
bags of il to bool. 

Ripley can flidk between four s*& of weapons 
| see below For details! but unfortunately they 
are all rather limited. Tim means you have 
to be cartful otherwise you I « be weaponless 
ond help -ess. You can replenish your armoury 
if you're lucky enough to hnd the appropriate 
icons. 

Alien] is a complete and utter gorefost wilh 
blood and, in the aliens' cases, acid flying ail 
over the place. Graphically it is qrita impressive. 
The main Ripley sprite adudlly doe 5 look like 
she heroine of the Films, bat unfortunately she 
could dso easily be mistaken for Irish pcfslrel 
Sinead ffConnar. 

The alien sprites are just os impressive, very 
mean and menacing. The backdrops are 
well drawn and odd to the daflt and interna 
ctewspbiTE. 

There is a choice to be made on the sound 
Front hafween music Ofld sound effects - you con- 
have both! The sound effects are fairly naff 


and dauwnrighfl 
h .id breath as well 

uuart from □ nice squishing when you blow 
oiien to bils. The oontroli are easy enough 
from the annoying fod that you hew; to press 
spacebar to charge your weapon. 

If's not original by any means, but other p<? 
former* pule in comparison thanks lo the 
moody graphics that generate such a spo:-** 
atmosphere. 

Alien] is os good as the Mega Drive versk* 
and any Amiga-own mg Aliens fan is game 
woftf to rush Oul to buy it. 

I would heartily recommend it to anyone, r. 
as jt's basically a bog-standard platformer 
comes dawn to persond preference, if you worr p 
cutesy platform game take c peek d Superfrog b A 
if you wont a violent, dark and moody one, iW 
AlienS is definitely your cup of 'ea Hwlson, -*

Ellen Ripley is back, but so is the bitch,

very bloody* Hudson, we are leaving*** 


M M M hen i first heard about 
1 Af Alken3 \ was as excited as a 
wU pervert in a whipped cream 
W V factory. The bottle between 
Ripley end the alien has raged on far over 
14 years now, You would hove thought 
(hot o software house such as Ocean or 
US Gold would hove signed up the licence, 
The only piece of software I cut remember ii a 


Nothing compare* 2 U, Ripley starts otf a le§* than success hil pop catw 


dreggy aid very sad attempt which appeared on 
Ihe god old Spectrum. Thanh lo Probe Software 
Alien] is now on ihe Amiga,, so lit bock, absorb 
the almosphera ad enjoy. 

\i dees nol follow the exad plot, the T&ason 
being that the film would not moke an 
entertaining bit of software. As -ans will 1 
know, All end doasn‘t feature any weapons 
because it is sel in a prison colony ond 

that in itself would 
moke the game a bit 
boring. 

A second reason 
is the fact that 
Alien] only features 
one alien and 
even a -supe^ dien 
woulddi lost long 
against Ripley 
What Probe have- 
done is added 
loads of w«pom -

♦.and they tike to walk off cliffs. A bizarre tie-in between those 
suicidal lemmings and the producers behind the KIF is 
about to yield a record. Ben Styles went to find out more r 


T ie-in* between software firms and 
record companies ore the in -thing 
these days. Wane,. Tetris r Mega-Lar 
Mania and So m the Hedgehog all 
neve records on sole or well on the way. 

blest in tfie long line of cotnptFter-tjeneral- 
d music maters is lemmings 2, so we wen! 
down to Food Records in London to see 
what's coating there. 

Behind ihe prodiKfion are ton Richardson 
und Nick Oder, whose company is famous 
mainly for the discovery of Jesus Jones, 


the >ua who get*, paid far 


t* 


whose lead singer coincidentally owns half of 
the studio. 

The person mostly responsible for their 
involvement in the Lemmings record is the 
gomes- playing A&ft man Miles who was 
approached by Psygnosis and decided it 
would be a hi! of Inn. Money is definitely no! 
their motivation far the record - ihey don't 
expect to moke much cut of if erf all. 

The studio itself is quite small, and no! 
really trowing the workings of such a place, 
1 was baffled by the presence of a large TV 
which was suspended above the mix- 
ing desk. 

"What's that lor?' ! asked inno- 
cently thinking il was going to be a 
key part of some technical video- 
mating process. 

Til show you/ and so Nick turns 
cm the TV showing me today's edi- 
tion of Yogi Bear, "and the horse 
raring's pretty important/ he says. 

So much far the high-powered 
world of pop! This is not the first 


record that ton and Nick have been involved 
in. Remember the fun but nevertheless ridicu- 
lous Doctorin' the Tordis that got to No 1 a 
few years ago? You will be relieved to know 
that it was produced by the KLF team under 
another name. 

Those early successes got Nick and 
Ian on Top of The Pops wearing silly 
costumes ond the like. Possibly the most 
remarkable thing about the fame wos the 
acquisition of a brand new Jaguar XJ5 
from Freddie Starr [honest] fallowing a bet on 
the record. 

About the only thing tan ond Nick had in 
common in the first place was that they both 
hod on interest in music ond hod worked in 
mental institutions at some point in their life. 
They didn't reveal whether that wos a help or 
a hindrance! 

The record itself will no! just be son^rhing 
you listen to r far on the 12in mixes will be 
solutions to various levels erf the game. We 
are noi entirely sure how they plan to incor- 
porate ihem onto thf vinyl - let's hope it's not 


a backwards message or they will probably 
end up being blamed for another teenage 
suicide!

TUTORIAL* 

i 


oops “ sections of code which 
I Lire repeated until some exit con- 
-33) d i t ion is satisfied - are extremely 
common in computer programs, 

HiSoft Basic provides a number of 
loop- related statements but the particular 
^ne used this month is the For/JSlext loop 
because il goes hand in hand with the use 
n a multi-container type of Bask variable 
known as the array. 

The variables we've talked about in 
the series So far have all Stoned single y al- 
lies. It is often useful however to be able 
to work with whole sets of related 
\ Jlues,, 

Suppose lor trample thai we wanted to 
usi- collections of x and y variables to hold 
the k and v axis components of three 
points on a graph. One approach would 
be to name the variables as xfi f yQ* xl, yl,

It for example,, we then wanted to ini- 
'iali.se each X stem to a value of 20, we 
could doit like this: 


write loops like: 

m 1-0 Eg r. 

de &5»e‘hln»j with thf i ' t h if itei 
NUT i 

This need was solved many years ago by 
developing the idea of an indexed or sub- 
scripted variable. With HiSoft Basic, as 
with most high-level languages, these 
enti ties are called arrays cmd each item in 
the array is known as an ehwnt 

An array then is a collection of objects 
of the same type arranged in such a way 
that we can access any element of the 
array by specifying its Index position. 

Array names follow the same rules as 

j 

those for ordinary variables but arrays 
which contain more than ter elements 
need to be pre-declared using Basic's DIM 
statement. 

To dimension a string array called :■;$(} 
and set all of the elements from *$(0) to 
x$(99) to the string "Empty" we would 
therefore use this code. 


KlliZti 

u-.io 

Three values are easy enough to code 
but try this approach with IDO such slate- 
merits and you'll realise that there must 
be a belter way of handling these 
situations. 

What Ls needed is a way of declaring 
collections of items in a way that allows us 
to uniquely identify an item by virtue of 
its position, because in that case we could

Similarly to prim the contents of the 
above array we could use this loop; 

m M ta 91 
FUJI Mi) 

NEXT i 

I've used subscripts that start from 
zero so the string array shown above con- 
tains one hundred elements, ie 
x${0) up to x$(99). Some people 
find working with zero indices 
awkward and It is worth men- 
tioning lhat HiSoft Basic provides 
an Option Base statement which 
allows the programmer to force 
array index values to always start 
from one. 

Multi -dimensional arrays or 
tables, eg x$(20 P 20) are easily set 
up and with HiSoft Basic it is 
even possible to use arrays which

are local to subprograms. Another power- 
ful HiSoft extension is the ability hi ^'di- 
mension an array without loosing existing 
date. 

You do not incidentally have to use 
simple array subscripts. Expressions can 
be used and the dock program that I pro- 
vided last n^xnth is a good example. 

The second-hand had lo he able to he 
displayed In any one of 60 positions and 
since a complete sweep of a circular clock 
face involves 360 degrees it was not hard 
to figure out that each new second hand 
position was six degrees lurl her on from 
the last. 

By using a hi tot high school trigonom- 
etry I was able to precalculate the loca- 
tions on the circumference representing 
those second- h&n d positions. Here's the 
x() and y() array-based loop w r hich chd die

loop range you'U see that they just corre- 
spond to the numbers 0, 1 , 2 r 3 r 4 rP 60. 

In other words, the right-hand side terms 
provide a way of specifying the x() and y() 
array subscripts whilst the left-hand-side 
expressions produce the second-hand posi- 
tion co-ordinates which get stored in the 
array. 

The result is that for any value of i from 0 
to hQ the array elements xlj) and yft) end up 
holding the x/y co-ordinate data for the 
outer- most point of the i r th second-hand 
position. 

It is because I pre-calculated these second- 
hand circle point values that I was able to net 
up the initial clock display by using a loop 
which plotted all 60 second-hand positions 
using Basic's Pset instruction., The loop 
added the x() and y0 co-ordinates for each 
second hand position to an arbitrary: 

FOR f=0 Ed £[T ia t pr etch second 
PiET£XJtIEJN*rilt # TJRIElltytm 
if IT t 

The same pre-calculated x() and yO date 
was of course also used in the routine that 
updated die position of the second-hand! 

Trying to write a similar program with- 
out using array-based code would be a 
nightmare and the moral of this story is sim- 
ple: Loop-based array constructs are well 
worth teaming about because, one you are 
used to the underlying ideas, they can make 
your life a programmer significantly eas- 
ier!

AMIGA 


Expert views 
on the latest 
applications 


Many Amiga users are drawn 10 teaming ARexx, so as to 
get the most out of multitasking' but a. few shy away 
from its "minority language' 1 image No point In putting ^ 
lot of investmeni into something that wont l>e very use- 
ful Ln the future. 

Dent worry. If you team AJfcxx you probably won’t 
have to learn any other macro language, at least not on 
tlve Amiga. All major software packages are now using 
ARexx as their automation language The ARcxx core is 
the same regardless of which software uses it. 

AKesx is also simple enough to be picked up very 
quickly if you already know' another language, like 
Basic, and not too difficult even if you know no other 
programming language. 

The most interesting item of new r s that 1 got this 
month,, however, is that IBM will Ixr releasing something 


called VISUAL REXX with the latest version of its new 
OS/2 2.0 operating system. This appears to be RKXX 
with a graphic interface ro OS/2. 

Now RKXX, (the language on which ARolx is based), 
has 1 seen around for some lime on large computers, and 
a is even, available under MS-DOS. There it enjoys .i 
small following of users who like its excellent parsing 
facilities, and use it as* a Laillity language. 

Of course, you get nothing like the multitasking con- 
trol that ARexx gives, but since PCs have never had true 
multitasking in the first place, this has been irrelevant. 

With the appearance of modern multitasking systems 
like OS/2 2.0 and Microsoft's Windows NT, it won't take 
long for someone to realise that all these tasks could be 
usefully linked. All they have to do is look at the 
Amiga. 


E o you know that feeling you get once in a 
while, when you see a really excellent piece 
of software, or for that matter any really well 
thought out and effective product? 

You kra*w the feeling I'm talking about - it is like a big 
grin inside you, a reassuring feeling thai there are still peo- 
pfe out there who love wliat they do. Someone, some- 
where, Isas actually taken the trouble not to dish out just 
any old slop. 

For me these moments reaffirm the fun philosophy of 
computing so often obscured by today s commercial 
onnsidcTatiuns. 

Now when programs like these are shareware, with 
registration coses so low that they an 1 practically free, I 
think we should all really take notice and support diem. 
After all, it doesn't take only expensive packages to draw 
tjur attention any more, does it? At least, t hope not. 

Yes d.c p.aLge I am talking altout b leiilh dial gi-:>d. 
It is a cel animation engine called XI from Software on a 
Shoestring (it ready isl) in the USA, and Lusts only $30. 

If you do any animation at all, and it s been some time 
since you experienced the feeling we mentioned above, 
this package could well make your day.,. 

For those who havenT come across it, cel animation U 
the process by which drawings are produced 'on succes- 
sive layers of transparent material (cds) h so thai the eye 
ran see the w hole sequence of movements at a glance, 

XI simulates the transparent cels by using successive 
shades of grey, so ibai the more recent frames, are darker, 
and the older ones are paler. 

This is a fairly standard technique and is used in many 
animMion programs, including Disney Animation Studio, It 
should be obvious that die animated cels are in black and 
while (line drawing) only; if you want to paint them in 
subsequently, you must import them into a paint package 
When a scripting language is added to any drawing 
program, it automatically adds a new dimension to it, giv- 
ing it some of the qualities of a mini-CAD package. 

This kind of automating power is invaluable where a lot 
of precision is necessary, and would come into its own 
when animating such tilings as machines, moving compo- 
nents and so on. 

All this is usable directly from ARexx. In fact, you could 
create a whole animation without as much as touching 
your mouse or graphic's tablet, simply by programming it. 

By using (he programming side of ARexx for calcula- 
tions, a lot of possibilities are opened: With a bit of work 
you could accomplish goal-directed animation, ie repre- 


XI has after* variety Qf features, including 
control of rfra bfitter 

stilting the movement of linked or articulated uhjecis. 

Alternatively you could take 3D (x,y,?J co-ordinates, 
haps from a modelling program, and convert them Mi 
screen representations, either isometric, or even pers| 
Program the change needed in each ceL and let your mat 
do the animation for you. 

The ARexx interface is very simple. It is Invoked with 
mouse click which prompts you for your pre-written pro 
You can also enter single line commands directly at 
requester. Naturally. XI cm be linked to any other ARexx 
patible program. 

The program proved itself extremely quick to use and 
on with. There are intelligent keyboard shoit-cuts for evi 
tiling - a feature often neglected on the Amiga

aring an animation sequence, making use of the turtle:

Take a trip with turtle power 


One of the nwwt well thought-tjul features 
of X] is the inclusion of scxalfed 
graphics’' as found in the educati ™l Lin* 
guage. LOGO, 

Turtle graphics is u way of drawing 
specifying a direcrion and a heading tr< m 
your current position on die screen, ratter 
limn using the traditional ix,yi Loordinaie 
system 

The name is historic:! tlv derived from a 

a 

little pen-cam mg rnedianical buggy, or 
turtle, which was used to create drawing 1 ’ 
in the early versions of LOGO. On screen 
the "turtle" is only notional - a pixel that 
moves and draws js you instruct it. 

The program control flow is provided 
by A he xx \l provides- only the graphics 
commands* such as FW x (forward x pix- 
els), RT \ (turn right y degrees.), PENL'F. 
P0TOOWN,, SETFOS x y (set die pticsiiion 
of tlie turtle), GETH I get the" direction the 
turtle is heading) and so on. 

'Hie conventional graphics commands 
like BOX, CIRCLE, POLYGON and l he like 
an lx.' freely mixed with turtle commands. 

For instance, to draw a square in LOGO 
you go forward and turn right a total of 
four rimes. This is what it looks like in Xf 


using ARexx.

For the purposes of this article I have 
-idnpted the convention of having all the 
ARexx commands in lowercase, and all the 
\! commands in capitals. This is not nec- 
essary \ it is only done for the sake of 
readability. 

Here’s another example, that gets and 
stores die airrent turtle position and head-

Just like LOGO, complete drawings can be 
described by a hi net ion or procedure, and 
can lie called whenever needed. 

The importance of the turtle graphics is 


that they ears describe a drawing fully, 
independently of the direction in which it 
is facing, 'his is a very elegant solution 
and .spares us the effort of recalculating 
the LCM>rdiruie.s. 

Tl>e turtle graphics built into XL togeth- 
er with ARexx, combine to form an inter- 
e Sting version of LOGO. I can easily see it 
being used to teach kids; the animation 
Ixtnus will certainly liven up any class. 

Regular LOGO does not have anything 
like die facilities ur speed required to dis- 
play animations, so Xl provides a really 
good perhaps a better* alternative. Ideas 
can he visualised very quickly, and errors 
are spotted instantly and can be corrected 
interactively. This is a vital part of the 
learning process. 

Relieve me, this product Is full of 
schoolroom potential It has chat special 
ability to capture the imagination instantly, 
and the quick and visible results are great 
for motivation. 

Whether* H will actually ever be used in 
this wav is another matter. Call me a cynic 

u j 

if you will, but I suspect it won't. Oh well, 
at least the smart hobbyists anil keen ama- 
teurs will benefit™

many home studios, As a result two new units In™ 


FJectionfer Design an: hot news - especially as they seem to be 
jffofdaljle while retaining quality msulis. You can chooe ftfom the 
cheaper composite version t w the prider Y/C jimJ S-VHS unit 
As you can see from ihe photograph; y T they aren't exactly anv 
tendeis for the Miss Genlock awards, bui if you can overtook the 
less iitm spectacular acNtlietits and cast the Volvo-esque styling 
side the inimrr hides the odd pleasant surprise 
Although not pretty, both unto certainly sew wefl cm ihe func- 
tionality side with the son of robust design and build quality whkh 
tpiiouuscs Gen nan atientiuii to detail. 

each serve* a djffbenl sudor of the nurkti the f%isk. 
design is all hitt identical, with the only difference appeanng on 
the rear of the units. 

As you'd expect from an S-VHS genlock, both Y/C in and out 
•iff there r plus the added attraction of iIk-et UHitptssiie jIilt egos. A 
partkiibirly ptosanl aspect ol the Y/C option are the standard 
5-VHS mini DINs is opposed id the split male phonos st^rnetiiTK's 
offered on S-Vf IS gear - a form of connection which all loo often 
needs addiiiouJ cabling to assimilate die hardware into certain 
i <iups r 


Although pretty self explanatory ~ courtesy of the photography 
(here's very llittk" physical difference litfween the two. As a result 
there's nm much point in dealing with their basic 
pltysklpgy separately. 

On the front of the near bomb-proof easing sals the ubiquitous 
control panel complete with a fairly standard my of control 
knolis pliLs a single invert switch ready in generale a keyhole 
effect - colour zero is foreground, video as l he background - 
when necessary. 

Of course this can be Higgled to the standard setting of video as 
J luphccmenl tor cokiur zero as required. Alongside the ulore- 
meniioned flick switch await a total of no less than five knobs, 
each controlling their own dement of the final outpuL 
Hie fust three deal specifically with the tjveial image quality by 
ilkming adjustment of cotour, contrast and brightness ittpertvdy* 
The penultimate knob adds ihe essential lade allowing control 
twer the isit reduction and fading of ihe overbid Amiga graphics 
w title Ihe I cftli and final defines the degree of supwirtipuse applied 
tiuhe video signal 

All pretty standard stuff, however it must be .sad thul ihe knolw 
tlieniselves do leave a bit to he desired Although is sturdy as they 
tome, they fed a bit slack which in practice means thai silky 
smooth fades can become a little pttky. 

There's yd another imlaEing aspect uj- [le control panel namely 
.svaifcihle apace. Being a fairly sizeable chap P t like many tubers 
suffer from unfcasibly big mins and as j result actually turning the 
knobs under the cramped vurdiiions can cause real pre Weans on 


Ivxh units. 


Moving to the Mr of the units ihings are again pretty standard 
^ 3th die necessary I/O options ontfinfied earlier plus the essential 
j(GH Tluu, enabling connection of a innanilor. 

Although a fairly standard feature on must modem gerifcxks, its 
importance canT he stressed enough. If you're toying w iih ihe idea 
>f a cheaper genlock, think very carefully if this particular ft jtim 1 
l-’U'e implemmled, as an apparent initial saving can prove costly in 
ihe long term. 

In addition In I/O and the ihru-pott, Ixxh units also offer an 


Get connected 

in the classic tradition of almost every genlock on the 
market, both Electronic Design models connect up to 
RG8 Out on the Amiga by a suitably lengthy cable while 
the actual power is supplied via a joystick connector. 

Although seemingly the ideal answer to the power 
problem, the aforesaid connector can be Iricky when 
connected to an A 150 CM 2000. 

Admittedly the connection can be made but it s a pret- 
ty close call and it constant removal and reconnection is 
required the wear and tear could cause problems in time.

When the object program (block) is run, 
the program opens the Intuition and

module must support a minimum of 16

cannot guarantee 24 voices. ’Whichever way you view it, die 
GMX-l does not conform To GM in this area. 

Politics aside, comparing playback of a Midi Pile on the 
GMX-l and a Sound Canvas .shows that Dream appear to have 
incorrectly set the initial levels of the 128 bask minds — the 
mix balance is poor. Additionally, long sounds tend to he cm 
off due lo the lack of sufficient polyphony. Inability to edit 
sounds, no effects, insufficient polyphony, and poor sound 
quality... 

If you're a games player who wants to improve on the innate 
quality of die your Amiga ami who owns games that support 
playback on a GM module, then the GMX-l might be worthy of 
consideration. If you're after a multi-llmbial sound module that 
will help you to create music, you'll probably want to look 
elsewhere - possibly at Roland's SC-7, a cut-down Sound 
Canvas for £259.

Setting up your own BBS need not be expensive, anti just

If you're into setting up your own BBS. try die Rapport system 
• Big Bang Enterprises h £50), which is one of the fastest and cheap- 
est ways around to end up with a fully- featured colourful ANSI 
BBS from scratch in an afternoon. 

Few things ate as much fun as the Big Bang Burger Bar, die BBS 
running under the Rapport system, ll's fun value is due in no small 
part to the slick and colourful software that the system runs on. 

It comes on a single disk and is easy to install on your system. 
Be warned if you want to set up a BBS of your own you will need 
j hard disk.

The name comes from the Hitch-hiker's Guide To The Galaxy, in 
case you hadn't guessed, and the Sysops are Sian ilia rtfasi and 
Gargravarr. The board is liberally seasoned with references to the 
radio series and books, and recognising the queues and all chat is 
almost the mast entertaining tiling alxjut it. 

There is even The Guide, an on-line magazine for BBS travellers 
to get their bearings in die Galaxy. Gn-lme games, Files to up and 
download, it's all there, and all in fwofesssum] machine code. Fast 
and stable. 

The system practically installs itself and even Ices you tog onto 
your own board from die computer it’s running on. meaning you 
can test out the system without having to log on using a phone. 

If there was just one tiling I'd change I'd say die documentation 
isn't comprehensive enough, but apparently this is all due to

himself and sorted it < >ut for me 
My system has been all over die place for

nal software problem. J reformatted the turd disks and checked 
all the library versions. I used Snoop Dos to find out wlut was 
going wrong and it said there wasn't anything wrung. 

I told all this to Gary Whiteley just betide I blew my brains out 
with a .44 Magnum and he said don't do that, just rum off the

Yes it's true. Turns out It's not so much either a Inig in DOpus 
or NComm, more of a clash. If you use a modem, the CPL moni- 
tor on DOpus messes up die timing etc, which explains the inter- 
mittent nature of the problem 

I sometimes have DOpus iconified cm my WB when I'm work-

don't knew about you, but I’ve always [iked tho«_ j hori- 
zontal meters you find in games or application program* 
which se rej] I across the screen smoothly to Indicate the 
amount of a task which is completed, 

Also in pme programs you can have a bar reading of air in 
your tanks, ammo in your gun, or energy in your role-playing 
characters 

As well as being just a meter which goes up and stops at the 
■*nd. you can do stuff to if to make it go up and down ai will, 
limply by reversing the process with drawing in black ink 
1 thought it would lx: a challenge to try and implement one of 
these in a short Amos routine, and here it is. 

The first .step is id tide the program, which I wtckc, using these 
words: 



Hci « mi itittr « 

Reb ** 1993 Snout « 


1 )K, substitute your own name if you want, Vm not proud, I m no 
prims donna. Next we sidd all die usual guff to dean up the 
screen and make it ready to use: 

■r 


tur* Off : Hide : Paper D : DLs D 

lurn off the cursor and the pointer, set the paper tn Hack 
i colour 0) and dear die screen. 

Nexl, by way of explanation of what’s going on in this pro- 
gram, we put a title up there at the top of the screen: 

(inLfp *- fill 'ir up! - H 



Nothing fancy, Well be overwriting this with other tides as the 
bar progresses across the screen. Next a bounding box to sur- 
round the liar to show roughly where ir is in its path: 

]nfe * En. 31,1* To 243, 32 

leaving a one-pixd gap around where the bar will be, Next we 
set the colour of the ink for the bar, in this case red: 


Any plotted points will be red Now we set up the initial plot 
point. This is the dot on-screen where the top left part bar will 
begin: 

t-4fl : £-20 

Right fhafs all the .setting up, so let s draw our bar We do this 
using a pair of nested loops, one going from 0 to 200 the 
length of the bar, and one going from 0 to LO, the height ol 
the bar. 

The bar is drawn one dot at a time from 40,20 down ten dots, 
then we start again at 4 3 ,20 and draw it again. As we progress 
across die screen the dots all merge producing a solid bar: 

Idr J-0 In ZCC 

[f j?JC Then BeU s Ctrl in Sjirtir Full! 

Ef J = 1 C D Thsn Celt : Cent r* liiUmf tisr t! -*

The finished mfitir in aJt its (mh&mf glory 


After 50 little lines the bell sounds and the message Quarter 
full Is printed over the title. At the halfway point, or 300 lines. 


AMOS 



the title reads half full. At the three quar- 
ter stage, 150 lines, the title reads Three 
Quarters. Wiven die bar is finished we get 
a final bell and: 


Ctnue

The program then waits to be terminat- 
ed by pressing any key on die Amiga 
keyboard. Phis is a dassit routine and 
one which 1 vc uxed on almost every 
Basic interpreter I've ever encountered. 
You can adapt this routine to do a 
vertical bar by simply changing the 
carder of the loops and reversing the co- 
ordinates so the rather than drawing the 
bar from left la right you fill 'er up from 
the bottom to the top, or even right to 
left. You could even accompany the 
drawing with a little calculation to see 


Pleased 


to meter 


bow much of a thing is actually [eft. Also you can do a 
reverse drawing of the line in black,, erasing it as something 
in your game runs out, like oxygen or time* or even allowing 
it to go up and down as you need it to. 

The beauty of this routine is that it is totally independent 
of any other routines and will quite happily whiz the bar 
along at any speed. If unchecked by the WAIT 3 command 
you will see it all happens very quickly, so if you have some 
complex calculations to do at the same lime you’ll still be 
able to inc and dec the bar up and down and maintain a 
resectable speed.. 


Phil South looks at 
on-screen meters 
and tosses in a few 
hints and tips 
about using 
sprites and bobs 


Although Amos Pro Is said by some to be 99 
per cent bug free I figure that this moans that 
in a lOOk program only Ik of it Is buggy. 

In any event we are inexorably being 
drawn down the Amos Pro road, as the very 
final version of Amos Classic is 1,35, due out 
as update disks and files on your friendly 
neighbourhood BBS by the time you read 
Ibis. 

The Amos Pro Compiler is rumoured to be 
ready around now too, which finally makes 
Pro usable for more than just programming 
exercises. 

Some see this as the end of an era. but I 
see it being the start of a new phase. I can 


foresee Amos use being polarised into two 
camps in the near future, with people using 
the Amos Classic program for serious pro- 
gram development and building their own 
extensions to make up for any shortfalls, like 
Ihe intuition and ARexx ideas l r ve heard 
about recently, and Amos Pro being the pub- 
lic’s introduction to the sport, as it were. 

What with PCOS only a few mifes down the 
road now, I can see program support being 
stretched as a flood of new PC users come 
into Ihe frame, so support wilt be more 
reliant upon the old Amos users and the 
Amos Club, in any event Amos Classic is 
dead. Long live Classic Amos.

Amiga Computing June 1933 




ose ProPage and ProDraw users will have played 
with them. Many will have scratched their heads 
and wondered what all the fuss is about. Some 


will adore them but will have got a bit hot under She collar 
after discovering that a few of them don’t appear to work 
properly. 

I fall into that last, class of user, and the "broken'’ ProPage 
Genie that really upset me was AutoSave, the one that prompts 
you every so often to save your work. 

Rather than wait for Gold Disk to fix ii (fat chancel.) 3 decid- 


ed to have a go myself. 

Hie first job was to find out exactly what the program was 
^apposed to do, and this I did by “reading" the program, With 
the Commodore AKexs manual and the ProPage 3-0 
Supplement Manual by my side I followed the logic of the pro- 
gram line by line* immediately discovering that the 
Auto$ave,pprx" program calls a second program named 
r PPage Au toSave. resx " . 

This secotid program is the meat of the AutoSave Genie, the 
code that actually puts up the prompts and saves the file, and 
because the ARcxx language is so English-like l very quickly 
worked out that the program puis up a file requester if the 
document is stili untitled, otherwise it simply saves the file 
with Che existing filename. 

To work property the program has to strip the actual name 
of the document away from the path- So, for instance, the 
siring “Work:DTP/PPage/Docs/MyDoc H has to be turned into 
lust u My Doc". 

By experimenting with the Genie 1 discovered that if the 
path and file name of the document was just 
" Dev it e ; Filen a me * or “Devi ce : D i recto ry / F i l e na me " - 
“Work: My Doc " or “ Work: PFage/My Doc" for example - then 
Che Genie worked perfectly, 


Bug located 


Rut if there was more than one directory between the device 
and the filename, die * AutoSave?" prompt would come up after 
Che first waking period, but clicking Yes didn’t save it and ihe 
prompt would never return. 

Aha? I’d found the bug, It musi be In the code that strips the 
filename away from tile path. 

Luckily this code was easy to find as it is a separate proce- 
dure called splUpatbQ, Little clue there in the procedure name, 
The first thing this procedure does is use the pos( ) command 
to look for the first occurrence of a backslash in the complete 
path and filename string, 

If it finds one, It remembers where it is in the string in the 
spas variable, if there's no backslash it sets .spos to zero, and 
goes to looks for a colon (in order to strip the filename away 
from the device name) and remembers the colon's position in 
the vpos variable. 

If both variables end up being set to zero, it already has a 
filename without a path, so there's no splitting required, and 
the procedure sends the same string that was passed to it back

Lifting § r Ahawin^ trie changes made 


PUBLISHING 


to the main program. 

Otherw ise it uses the larger of tiie two 
numbers held in spos and vpos to strip 
the name away from the path. 

The problem lied in the very first line 
of the procedure, which was linking for 
the first occurrence of a backslash in the 
path and file name siring. If there was 
more than one directory, the routine 
passed on a filename that was headed by 
one or more directory names, 

Thus, when the file came to be saved, 
the directories in ihai siring didn’t actual- 
ly exist within the current directory, so 
Amiga DOS could not save the file as 
requested. 

What the procedure needed to do was 
look for and remember the position of 
the last backslash in the string, and a 
quick flick tli rough the ARexx manual 



Magic in 
the air 


revealed that there was a laflposD command which did just 
this, E altered the code, rebooted and ran the AutoSave Genie, 
It didn't work. 

I stared at the code on the screen, The logic was perfect 
right up to the actual subsirQ command That did the string 
splitting, This command first Itxiked to see which of the vari- 
ables. spos and vpos, held the largest value, added one to that 
and used that number as the starting position in the whole 
string from which to start stripping. 

Ah, But would it? If spos is non-zero the code which looks 
for and assigns a value to vpos is never executed. And the 
maxQ command, which returns the largest value from a list of 
values, according to the ATiexx manual, must lx- supplied with 
a list of values of the same type. ]f vpos was not being 
assigned a value it had no type, so the maxO command was 
not executing properly., 

[ added li line it? the start of die procedure that assigned a 
value of zero to vpos. It there was no backslash in the string 
then the code that looked for a colon would lie executed and 
the value of vpos would be changed accordingly* or set again 
to zero if no colon was found, 

If the code the sets vpos i,s not executed this means that 
spos is non-zero (a backslash has been found) so setting die 
value of vpos to zero at the start won't matter because 
will be a higher value than this anyway. 

So now, when the max() command was executed vpos 

alwavs had a numerical value, and therefore was of die same 

■ p - 

type of variable as spos. and so the command would work 
properly. 

1 tried again. It worked. And it works perfectly every time, 
Bliss! 1 now have an AutoSave feature in ProPage.

r 


his month we re looking ui si rapidly gnjwing rrew 
Dedmology lhat will have a dramatic impact on the 
hitun? of Amiga multimedia development. Not top- 
ping, FH be looking at two new developnients in CD-ROM 
drive i et hnology and the possible future of Amiga CD systems 
With the coming of the A600 and later the A HOD, Amiga 
owners have a nos inierface medium, PCMQA This provider a 
kiw cost, conifKict interface ihat can lie used for a wide variety 
' >t input mediums and will dins have a considerable effect on 
noc just Amiga, bin industry-wide multimedia applications. 

But just what is this new interface anti what will it offer to 
you and me? In short, it is a H j t of standards, laid down in 
August 1990, which cover the physical aspects of a range of 
credit card sized devices which bring new levels of power to 


All PCMCIA cards feature a fiH-pin connector. There are dif- 
■crent heights for the cards, with the various PCMCIA version 
numl^iTs determining the height. 

Thus Version 1 cards are 3.3mm thick. Version 2 <as found 
on the Amiga) 5mm, while Version 3 art 1 10.5nun. The recently 
announced Version i are 16mm thick. 

The need for different heights comes from the ever-increas- 
m need to cram more into PCMCIA cards, 

The earliest cards were designed simply for memory 
upgrades. The latest release (l6nim> was implemented to Pacili- 
late, and I jest not. the emerging range of credit card sized hand 
drives. Other developments on the format include modems, 
adapters and fax moderns. 

More interesting however, for us at least, is the range of 
interfaces now- appearing on PCMCIA cards. One of the prob- 
lems of the lower end Ami gas for development of multimedia 
applications ss that they are limited m the what peripherals you 
can use. 

While you can get hardware upgrades to provide different 
types of input,, many go inside, and you can only fit one or 
possibly two at once. 

Still, it's not so had, you can unplug then, but do you fancy 
constantly having to open your Amiga just io "grab" a different 
type of data? 

With PCMCIA you'll 1>l l able to chop and change between 



say a Iramc grabber, SCSI -based scanner 
and sound sampler simply by dropping in 
a different card - what could be simpler, 
These and other cards are* already on their 
way. They are also scheduled to be fairly 
low cast 

The long and short of this is that PCM- 
CIA should spur on :i whole new genera- 
tion of Amiga multimedia software. Ef 
you're an Amiga owner PCMCIA will bring 
you immense benefits. Eiut there are prob- 
lems. 

There are already some developers 
releasing upgrades that are not compatible 
with the PCMCIA slot, and even worse 
require you to disable this expansion card 
firar! 

Hie Amiga has enough problems as it =s 
without the hindrances from developers 
who take shon-euis. The message is dear - 
check when buying an Amiga peripheral 
or upgrade. If it isn't fuiiy compatible with 
the PCMCIA interface don’t buy it! 



Bright 

future 


Julius 
Alexander 
reports on 
the latest 
PCMCIA 
technology 



and even 
faster 
CD-ROM 
drives 


CD-ROM gets a dose of speed 


As Amiga users, we are more than aware of the 
speed at which computer technology develops. 
Look al how, for instance, the shape of home 
computing has changed in just si* months with 
the advent of 32-bit systems from both 
Commodore and Atari. 

But what can you do with CD-ROM drives? 
How cart you make them faster? You can't 
increase the speed of a CD-ROM drive can you? 
After all, how fast can you make a sliver of pFas- 
tic spin? 

Well, several of the world’s leading CO-ROM 
drive manufacturers have announced new CD- 
ROM mechanisms which do Just this, and in the 
process slash access time by half. 

Last year NEC announced a CD-ROM drive 
that spins twice as Fast as normal. Pioneer have 
announced a mechanism which can spin CD 


discs at four limes faster than normal speed! 
This generates a sensational transfer rate of over 
1 Mb/second at limes, compared to the measly 
153 Kb/second of the existing A570, 

Obviously these high speed drives have to 
slow down for normal audio data, which requires 
a rate of 153Kb. but for interactive movies.,. 

And Ihere s more! New developments from 
Nimbus means that the amount of data that can 
be stored on a single CD disc has been almost 
doubled. 

Currently the maximum length of movie lhat 
can be stored on a CD (as set by SonyfPhllips 
ruled Red Book) is fust 75 minutes - nothing 
given an average cinema film is now around 120 
minutes. But by mid-summer, a suitable MPEG 
compression chipset should also be widely avail- 
able - see previous columns. Combine the above 


three, and you can easily get a full length inter- 
active movie, with CD quality, stereo sound on a 
single disc! 

Thus the biggest problems lhal have prevent- 
ed such movies appearing on CDs have been 
over come. So how does all this affect Amiga CD 
technology? 

Well, Commodore are rumoured to be working 
on new Amiga CD systems and J predict you’ll 
see at least one of these new technologies 
incorporated into these new products. 

The only question remaining Is whether 
Philips or 3DQ, which I It be looking at next 
month, get there first. 

Philips have already put back their FMV 
release date until Autumn 93. so they are unlike- 
ly to make it - but 3DO with its mid-93 launch Is 
more of a threat,

Hard times 

Our latest foray into the hardware jungle returns, 
bringing a full reconnaissance report on the strengths 
and weaknesses of the ever more popular hard drive 



S \ ince the A4000 was released last year, we've 
/been waiting for the machine to make the AG A 
Amiga line-up complete, the mid-level machine to 
! ill the gap between the corporate A4000 and the base 
level Aim 


We finally got it this month with the A^OQO/030 and, 
though much more realistically priced than the A4Q0Q, it 
is still more expensive than its competitors, the cheap 486 
clone and the Mac LGL 


The question this raises is that although confirmed 
Amiga enthusiasts and serious users will no doubt see it as 
an affordable ACA platform for multimedia, DTP and 
video work, the A4 000/030 could find convincing the rest 
of the world a somewhat more difficult task. 


Competition for sales of any machine is intense in 
Every market from games to education, and for 
Commodore to succeed with a non-mass market machine 
they must price it aggressively. 

Arguments put forward by Commodore to support 
their marketing strategies for the A300Q and A4O0Q/Q40 
are that the machines are designed to appeal to a corpo- 
rate market which is more interested in results and quality 
than cutting costs, a sort of "no-one ever got fired far 
buying an A400O" approach. 

To a certain extent, this Is a sensible policy as it allows 
dealers and consultants to hike an impressive mark-up 
with the more expensive products, taking more money 
from the same percentage margin. 

However, the cheaper 68030 version of the top level 
Amiga is unlikely to reach this strata of big-spending mul- 
timedia men, at least not in its basic configuration with 
flQMb hard drive and 4 Mb RAM, 

In this machine's case, expansion through the CPU 
slot, by adding either a 68040 or 6S040 with DSP, gives it 
extra appeal with its upward expandability, but for the 
average enthusiast user the price of the base level 
machine will be the vital statistic. 

Predictions as to the nature of the A2400, a machine 
which will now never appear r were for an ACA machine 
running a 6S030 in a pizza-style box containing perhaps 
two Zorro slots with one doubling as a video slot. 

In addition, the inclusion of a PCMCIA card would have 
given such a machine more upgrade options for the aspi- 









A high end Amiga, the A4Q0O/O3O, 
has finally dragged its weary body 
below the £1,000 mark, but is it still 
overpriced and under-powered? 


rant A1200 user. What eventually marched through the 
gates of Commodore Towers was a cut down version of 
the A4QD0 with a 68030, full desktop case with four Zorro 
slots, and no PCMCIA. 

Bask specification for hard drives seems to have been 
sensibly raised to the 60Mb level, hut RAM has been 
reduced to 2Mb chip and 2Mb fasl* figure which will be 
strained quite quickly given the nature of Workbench 3.0 
and 24-bit or Hamfl graphics, 

Commodore's policy of never supping * monitor as 
part of the standard package, a policy which - funnily 
enough - they don't apply to their PC division, is contin- 
ued, so the cost of the A4O00/03O system is really some- 
thing around L\,2S0 when a cheap VGA-only monitor is 
added, or £1,400 with a Commocbre multisync. 

At this price, many will decide that a PC clone or one 
□f the 68030-based Macintoshes h a better all-round buy. 
Of course, we all know that the PC done is a dinosaur 
barely disguised by a lew tacky go-f aster stripes and that 
the Mac is restricted in the tasks to whch it can be put 
without access to funds of almost defence budget proper- 


lions, but preaching to the converted will never expand the 
Amiga's user base. 

We cannot afford to let the Amiga become the domain 
□f a tightly huddled and anoraked group of fanatics who 
communicate only between themselves, nor can we expect 
the machine to succeed when other platforms offer per- 
fectly good solutions to productivity requirements for less 
outlay. 

This magazine has never faltered in Its assertion that for 
long term survival the Amiga must not only succeed in the 
rarified high-end multimedia field, but must also compete 
in the ultra-vicious middle market where the cheap PC 
clone has gained the high ground and the Macintosh has 
become Increasingly entrenched. 

The A4Q0Q/G3O meets most of the requirements for such 
a machine with one important exception: Pride. 

An A400O/O30 with VGA monitor for £999,99 rather 
than the same machine on its lonesome would present to 
the non ‘Amiga world [much the greater part of it, in other 
words) a machine which for value and power simply could 
not be matched by either the PC or the Mac,

mono hand scanner 


t doesn't take long for the computing companies at 
large to start knocking out bolt-on goodies for new 
machines but Power Computing seem to have a knack 
for bringing out hardware that is a cut above the rest, 

This particular piece is a 4Mb RAM expansion for die A 1 200, 
and for a change the features that it boasts are for real and not 
just marketing bumf. 

Crammed on to the neat little card which slots Into the 
Al2Q0*s CPU trapdoor are a row of fast ZIP chips 
giving the user that alfr important extra fast RAM, a battery- 
backed dock and a socket for the addition of anything up to a 
SOM Hi 6B882 floating point unit (FPU)- A separate osdlator 
socket stands ready to accept the timing chip suppled with each 
FPU. 

Ip h$ standard configuration with 4!ib RAM but no FPU, the 
PC 1 204 pve the office A 1200 a surprising little speed boost, a 
result no doubt of the fast zero wart state design of the board 
and the availability to the system of its 70ns fast RAM 

Screen refreshes *n particular were faster and the general 
operation of the machine ns a whole was improved by the addi- 
tion of the board. One gratifying area in which performance was 
bettered was when playing huge and memory-hungry games 
such as Wing Commander or B 1 7. 

When a 60802 FPU chap is installed, the speed improvement 
is more marked, but users will really see some action when a 
maths-intensive application such as Imagine is used. Ail such 
operations become smoother and faster, especially where a ver- 
sion of a package exists which is designed specifically to use the

As soon .is you clap eyes on Sc an- King you think it r s 
going to be a real waste of time, The scanner itself rt 
packaged in one of those really naff shrink wrap-type 
hard plastic covers, (he kind you would expect on realty 
cheap child's toys made in Taiwan. 

And the name doesn't really instil you with confi- 
dence. I mean come on, Scan King? What next, Monster 
Modem? 

Aside from that, the actual gear itself seems to be 
very sturdy if a bit bog standard and software is only on 
one disk which is a bit of a relief, but (he packaging 
really does leave a lot to be desired. 

I couldn't read the manual because we were sent the 
German one by mistake, Luckily the software was in 
English so I struggled on. On loading the package you 


3re presented with a list of icon tools down the left- 
hand side of the screen - just your average art pack- 
age tools, spray can and pencil facilities but it stuck 
me as being very jerky and inaccurate- Also, the kons 
arc very big and clumsy. 

To remedy this 1 went to Screen Format, put the 
screen into interlace and made the blip lane value 
higher. This had a dramatic effect - it made all the 
different gradients of shading smooth instead of half 
tone dots and the tools looked much better. Why the 
programmers didn’t set (he program to run in inter- 
lace in the first place is beyond me. 

Actually making a scan is really easy - don’t worry 
about all the buttons and switches on (he scanner, as 
the only one you really need to bother with is the 
brightness control. You can control what DPI you will 
be scanning at, but it's best to just get yourself 
started first and concentrate on such things later. 

When you choose Scan from the menu bars you 
will be asked how wide and how long you want to 
made the scan. Thk is fine but the software doesn't 


limit you to the width of the scan. This is a bit Skill 
really because the scanner is only i 00mm or so wide. 

To scan, you must place the scanner at the top a 
the piece of artwork and slowly pull down. Once I hac 
an image in RAM I was most pleased with the variety 
of effects and tools that were available. There wen 
various flips and image filters - but they do take a hc - 
uf a long lime to work. 

The most handy Were the 90 degree and 180 dugr^? 
flips which you use quite often because it is not always 
possible (o scan your Image the right way up. 

Bear in mind (hat this equipment is designed espe- 
cially for the A % 00 - there b no way you can run it on 
any oilier Amiga. Also you will have to put up with tb« 
sometimes painfully slow screen updates and be pre- 
pared to wait a lung time for some of the tools to 
work. 

Itr scans up to 400dpi which is good enough for any 
sort of work you would be doing at home unless you 
wish to scan transparencies, in which you're looking as 
spending no less, than £ 1 ,000,

Tfc* Disney 
— dil 
Sy*f and 
n« content 


Mickey* 123's is one of a series of American releases devel- 
oped by Disney Software. As you've probably already 
guessed this is the Same Disney of cartoon 
fame $q aN the characters in 
the programmes are the 
more famous cartoon stars 
like Mickey Mouse, Goofy and 
so on. 

The package ooies quality - it 
is the type of program you could 
quite happily take off the shelf 
and thinking you would be all right 
in buying, k looks wonderful!, com- 
plete with faunty Mickey stuck on 
the cover, But a$ the program 
unfolds it seems that more time has 
been spent on che bo* than on the 
game. 

For starters, it comes on two disks 
and is not hard drive 
installable. As a colleague of mine 
pointed cut, If this program had been 
on the PC no-one would have touched it 
because k is not hard drive installable so 
why should we have to put up with pro- 
grams Such as these which boot from 
floppy? 

When h open Mickey is asleep in his liv- 
ing room chair First you must wake him up 
and choose where he mutt go and what 
he will do. At this point I was seconds into 
the package and alarm bells were already 

ri n&*g- 

I was working with the manual beside me 
□nd following it to the letter but the action was incredibly 
slow. The machine tends to access the disk For some length 
oF time then the Screen will burst Into frantic movement for 
a second of two then it will go dead again while it's accessing 
the disk. 

In any other type of software this would be 
tolerable but because it's chiFdren's software you can't afford 
to have long gap where the child is not entertained. 
Everybody knows that children as a rule have an attention 
span of about half a second and they must be kept engaged. I 
really don't think that Mickey's ABC would stand up irv a 
classroom. 

Another thing which I found very unusual is the lack of 
educational content. Most of the sub-applications don't 
actually demand anything from the pupil, 

To me the program Is directed at p re -school chiFdren 
because a lot of the time it is dealing with concepts instead of 
actual numbers. It tries to introduce the child the ideas of 
more or less and quantities. 

There are some nice reward sequences when you finish 
levels and some good sound effects to keep the children 
engaged but there is no long lasting appeal.

The ADI Environment - 
A w&rfcbenrh 

fw thildrtO 


world where clicking on anything interesting elicits some k " : 
of response? 

The place where the package! differ, however, and the 
where the "rear learning and assessing goes on, is in 
Applications. Each package comes with two unique disks c< 
taining its Applications. 

These are the hits that are tailored to suit the age grou;^ 
mentioned, and each contains weh over a dozen activities which 
are assessable by the parent 

To u=se the Applications, the mer pots the correal 
Application disk into the drive and clicks on the door in ti c 
Environment Then a "book" showing what is available for loa: 
ing appears, and you simply select the chosen Application, 

Here is where I have a gripe wiih the packages. The manua - 
are shared between PC and Amiga users,, which l can put up 
with, even if they do become unclear in places (why dta I need ; 
Microsoft mouse?).. What l don't like is the fact that - as far as 1 
could tell - there is no way of ^stalling the Amiga version c* 
the program to hard disk. 

Wot only is this a pain for the increasing number of Amig: 
owners who have hard disks, but we are snubbed further in the 
Instruction book when it boasts about how, if you put all your 
applications in the same place on your hard drive, you car 
choose from a huge Nbrary every time you go to the 
Applications selection sheet. 

As it is, wu Armgans are limited by the number 
gf activities which can be held on one floppy disk, with all the 
waiting and disk switching which this entails for the serious 
education-package user,. Come on Europress, we buy hare 
drives too! 

The younger Reading package is based around the idea of a 
storybook - something familiar to most chihdrer 
of that age s one would hope- The child's vocabu- 
lary is strengthened in key areas such as the 
home. Food, animals and so on. 

There ire games to be discovered ^nd exer- 
dies to be completed - I particularly liked AD 
Junior's Gymnastics, which is similar to the 
Simon Says games 1 remember from my 
childhood. 

In this variant, the child is encouraged to cop* 
what ADI junior is doing, by maJklryg a robot do 
the same things - a fun activity requiring a Jot of 
thought. This is something I can personally 
testify to! 

This particular set of Applications; cover a 
good deaf of National Curriculum Attainment 
Target Level I s requirements, touching upon 
the requirements for Level 2. as well. However 
ADf Junior Reading far Six. and seven-year-olds - 
being naturally more complicated and advanced - 
complete^ fulfils level l H touching on all areas of 
Levels 2 and 1 too. 

Here, the Applications are based in a farm- 
yard, and the package aims to improve reading 
and writing skills, Using difficulty levels which tan 
be changed by the child as well at the parent or 
guardian,, it is possible for children of varying 


Amig a Market June f 993 


ceedir^s and will make the package feel far more user-friendly 
to a computer-shy child (does such a thing exist*). 

For your money you get three disks, a manual, some colour- 
coded copy protection booklets, a concise list of the games and 
exercises contained in the package, and a registration card, 
which as always is wonti sending back to the manufacturer in 
order to ensure information regarding upgrades and the like. 

Loading the program i$ simply a case of slipping the disk 
marked "f I" (For "environment") into your drive and turning 
the machine on, The program will bad automatically, asking 
you for some identification from one of the copy protection 
booklets at some point in the procedure. 

Correctly input and you are led into ADI's Environment - a 
unique land which forms the centre of ADI h s worfd for the 
duration of any playing session, 

The Environment is best described as a kind of pictorfa1 P 
child-optimised Workbench, from where y s ou can access any 
number of functions 

When the mouse pointer changes into a beige pointing hand, 
whatever object it Is positioned over will, when clicked upon, 
perform some kind of animation, For instance, the tortoise wilt 
rolt over and laugh, before running off, when "tickled". 

When the mouse pointer hs a red hand pointing, clicking on 
the object cant cried will initiate an activity of some k nd. This 
could be a tile puzzle or a simple racing game; an infants ' paint 
package or a time -telling exercise. Whatever is selected!, 
though, Is simply for the child's amusement, and does nqt 
'"scone" anything measurable. 

The idea is that the child gets comfortable with the use of 
the machine and The software - what better way for a young- 
ster to become initiated than through an appealing pictorial 


ADI Junior - Reading 
and Counting 

Supptfer? Eufopreis Software 
Phone: 0625 659333 
Price: £ 1 9.9*5 each 


Fallowing on from the highly successful Fun School educational! 
software range (with which regular readers will be familiar 
thanks to modules given away on recent Amigo Computing 
CoverDisks) are ADI and ADI Junior from EumopreSs Software, 

Four packages arrived for review - ADI Junior Reading for 
age groups four to five and six to seven, and ADI Junior 
Counting, for the same two age groups. 

The ADI packages contain a number of features - many of 
them unique - which stand diem apart from much educational 
software, and help the child! using them to do so more easily and 
successfully. 

The AD3 character himself is a prime example, Inherited 
(downwardly!) from the ADI packages aimed at older children, 
ADI Junior is a cute and cuddly al cn who will guide your child 
through the package, popping up at relevant points to scold or 
smile and generally poking his nose in to Find out what's going on 
just at those moments when a child might appreciate hrs being 
there, 

For instance, click on Quit from something and ADI will 
appear, nodding his head at the "Yes" icon and shaking it at the 
"No'’, His presence adds a comfortable coherence to the pro-

abilities to Pirate an equal amount of use from this and. 
Indeed, all cht ocher Applications, 

Exencises fine-tune and develop essential skills such as 
recognition of common I utter groups, reading with under- 
standing and vocabulary, while still worfilrg on more general 
development of skills such as observation* logic and 
lodgement. 

Judicious use of digitised speech from ADI as well as 
sound effects and the user-friendliness described earlier 
ensure that, tf the child needs help it the beginning, he or she 
will soon be happily hashing away at the keyboard unat- 
tended. 

The younger of the two Counting packages is set in ihe 
rather cosy environment of a rabbit's den. The rabbit - who 
bean more than a slight resemblance to Bugs Bunny - is as 
carcocmy and appealing as the rest of the characters who 
appear in the packages, 

Spatial, number and algebra skills ^re all developed 
as is, of course, the ability to count, When the child is confi- 
dent at counting pictures, they can be replaced with real 
numbers, and a calculator helps to develop practical number 
usage. 

The use of everyday objects such as marbles, 
seeds and clowns in the IS activities present help 
to make the child comfortable, and any child who scores well 
on all of these will have fully satisfied Attainment Target 
level I and a si tea bio chink of level 2 in the National 
Curriculum. The more senior counting package expands 


upon these skills to the point where a parent couid Expect a 
child to be fully up to the standard of the contentious -vs* 
Stage I Standard Assessment Test (SAT i and reahsticalh to be 
able to pass Stage 1 The more advanced exercises - such as 
The Candle Game, where the child is encourages to match dt* 


right sums to given answers - exercise skids to the standard of 
SAT Level 1 Set in a fairground, the package develops observe 
tion. memory, site and shape comparisons, and how shapes 

take up space. 

Overall, the ADI packages are as useful as they are Fun. 
From a child's point of view, they're colourful, noisy and com- 
pelling. and from the parent or guardian's viewpoint, highly 
accessible by means of a function key-activated "scorecard'* 
containing detaifed results which allow the parent to advise the 
child's teachers as to which areas he or she may be in need of 
extra help - or the opposite. 

There ire gripes. As mentioned-, the inability to 
install to hard disk is a frustrating decision by the program- 
mers, and also the password protection - which feek like one 
of the exercises when you're playing it - could have been far 
more user friendly. 

Personally | do not agree with distracting tfiE user from 
what he or she has bought in order to access an obscure code 
from a booklet, but some say this is a necessary evil. Still, it 
wol d have been nice if the colours asked for on-screen 
matched those In the printed booklet! 

But on the plus side, the programs are able to save to disk 
i^^ils of a child's progress^ meaning that the use of ADI is an 
intelligent, developing get of lessons rather than .a simple load - 
from-scratch affair. 

This ability, tied in with the intrinsic learning value present in 
2 well presented and tJwught-chrough package of this type, adds 
u? to a sec of programs of immeasurable value to the diligent 
parent

Some hard facts 

Using a sequencer needn't be a hardware nightmare on 
the Amiga side, nut it will he on the music side. Two 
megabytes of RAH should be enough for most uses 
unless the user Is fanning Oil using lots of gigantic sam- 
pies, and a hard drive would be best, but the Midi 
equipment requirements are as expensive as your bud- 
get and ,i mbit ions will allow. 

Fur any kind of serious work,, a Midi interface apid 
Midi compatible keyboard with its own built-in voices 
are essential. After this initial investment the user can 
start to look at mixers, four-tracks, monitors,, micro- 
phones and 50 on, right up to 16-bit sampling equip- 
ment and near -studio quality modules such as the 
Roland CM range. 

A member of iht AC staff, who shall remain name- 
less, recently spent £650 in one hour at an Amiga show 
on just this sort of kit* 50 don't say we didn't warn you. 




Bars and Pipes Pro {BBP) is easily the most modern and easy to 
use Amiga sampler around. its interface is designed to take the 
software hassles out of the mussc creation process and leave the 
composer to get on with the job at hand. 

With release 1 and die inclusion of direct control over multi- 
media events, BPP is now also the most powerful and Flexible 
Amiga sequencer. 

As the name of the package suggests, the BPP interface is 
controlled via bars and pipes which represent the channels going 
into and out of the sequencer through which all Midi data passes 

To alter the Midi data as it passes through, the user simply 
selects one of die cools available And drops ll into the pipeline 
rather like adding an ingredient to a neOpe. Unlike most recipes, 
however, these ingredients can be shuffled around or dispensed 
with at the user’s discretion, encouraging experimentation more 
than any other sequencer. 

Under the colourful interface, BPF is a powerful sequencer 
with a full range of 5MPTE options and system exclusive com- 
mands, so it is ideal both for the inexperienced composer look- 
ing For a “suck it and see ' sequencer and the seasoned user 
alike

KCS Sequencer 3.5 

One of the most powerful sequencers available! on the Amiga, 
KCS [from Dr T's, one of the oldest music companies in the 
Am^ga market) does just about everything, and in a very profes- 
sional way. 

The program is not ideal for the beginner, however, as both 
the software and the manual make assumptions about the user's 
knowledge of Midi and musk: in general. 

The package has a modular approach which it calls the Multi 
Program Environment (MPE), including the Tiger software for 
graphical editing, the Auiomix mixing program, and Ouickscore 
For generating traditional sheet muiiL On the 51 side, over 30 



Making music the modern 
way is a doddle with an 
Amiga, We look at some 
packages designed to 
help you 

such modules exist, though the package has eno^ to be fit- 
ting on with, so we could see many more ad - ~ ~ > to MPE 

appear in the future 

Overall, KCS is ideal for the profeswjnil or **ry nn«s 
home Midi enthusiast as it packs in a *»t v* tf erf ptmmM 
Mid i features, but is not recommended for the begww*fcr or 
occasional songster. It could use some friendly front-end 
graphics, but apart from this there'! very liitft that the 
package lacks.

tion in any one section of the son^ which means there is a 




total of 16 million potential backing tunes- When the user is 
ready, he or she |usc jumps in with the selected Instrument. 
Not best looked upon as a full-blown sequencer, Superjam! is 
great fun and a handy tool for those In need of a little 
Inspiration. 

As a standalone musac package, however, it has its limitation, 
and can't offer the more advanced Features found in the dedi- 
cated sequencers.

The Gad|iu sequencer is a fairly new product, and the Plus ver- 
sion a major revision, so it’s not surprisingly one of die most 
modern, easy to use sequencers. Fortunately, Sequencer One 
P?us is also one of the most powerful. 

The “Diamond Drag" editing system used in the package is 
probably the easiest graphical editing feature around, and gives 
the user total control over the finished sound. 

Using c the novice or seasoned user can simply drag a point 
on screen with the mouse to alter existing sounds or create 

new cries. 

There are plenty of powerful Midi features packed in under 
the surface as with the other modern glitzy sequencers* such as 
Midi system exclusive commands, very flexible Midi timing and 
pin/volume controls, and a track and cue sheet screen with 32 
tracks. 

Allied to the tape deck-style controls provided for many 
standard operations, the Sequencer One Plus combination of 
power and ease of use is hard to beat.

Having been spawned by a shareware program known and loved 
by thousands of Amiga musos, QctaMED should need little 
introduction, It is an eight-channel sequencer with basic graphics 
and Jots of powerful features given the price, and the first stop 
for anyone thinking of making a start in Midi . 

Buying OctaMED won't break the budget, but it will give the 
user some idea of Whether or not they have the talent to pro- 
duce original musie. 

QccaMED does everything a beginning muso could ask for. It 
supports Midi, can be used as sampling software with sampling 
hardware, there's a built-in sample editor, synch sounds can be 
created from scratch 

The program is good enough to keep the beginner going for 
a long time while the exorbitant askmg price for the power 
sequencers Is saved up, and is a very cheap way to find out if 
you have K in you. book out for earlier versions which are now 
available in the public domain.

It arrives minus a PSU, but it doesn't appear to suffer from 
any power problems, even when equipped with a fol comple- 
ment of flMb of RAM. 

Both the drive and RAM are extremely economic concerning 
power but. Even so an option for an external RSU has been 
added, The reason for this seemingly unnecessary option is the 
drive's DMA-ihrougjh port 

This option allows the conneciion of CD-ROMs and other 
side slot peripherals without the need to remove your drive ■» a 
problem which haunts a tec of the opposition.

offers aff the basics at a very reason- 
able price. The unit can vary 
between 40 and 1 10Mb while hous- 
ing up to 0Mb of RAM courtesy of 
cheap and cheerful Zip chips. 

In order to keep costs down to a 
minimum the AlphaPower comes 
with an IDE ns standard with the 
option to go for either a lull aiie or 
2.5fn drive. The advantage of the 
2.5 in is that, it's ideal if you decide

to invest Fn an A 1 200 later on. 
Although fairly basic with simple 
onfoffs for the drive and any addi- 
tional RAM, a DMA thru-port has 
been provided plus a ribbon cable 
pass-thru on the rear allowing addi- 
tional drives to be appended to the 
controller. Like most of the drives 
on offer, power is supplied by the 
Amiga, however an input for an 
external PSU is available if required 


■ in our tests it wasn't. As for speed, 
the AlfaPower is quite respectable 
and matches up well to the other 
IDEs in the roundup. 

All iin all this is probably the best 
basic hard drive on the market with

and a price that puts it at the top of
