DMA ENSURES HIGHEST 
PRACTICE 

A* with most industries. the UK,'£ 
personal cumpuier Industry has its 
share of cowboys operating in the mail 
nrder sector and at the receiving end a 
line up of despairing consumers who 
have suffered at their hands. 

A personal computer is a sophisticated 
and expensive item and provided the 
purchaser is dealing with a reputable 
and accredited supplier, buying a com- 
puter by mail order can be a perfectly 
sate and cost effective exercise. I he 
Direct Marketing Association (DMA) 
was set up in April 92 to set hind main- 
tain high standard* for the sake of the 
industry and society at large, and to 
ensure that we can continue to regulate 
our own activities on the basis of 
proper professional responsibility. 
Membership of the DMA ls not con- 
ferred lightly - ii is a privilege which 
entails responsibilities, to the consumer 
as well as to the industry. The founda- 
tion For this must be good practice. 
DMA members arc required to abide by 
the highest standards as laid down in 
the DMA's code, enforced on members 
by The Authority of the DMA a sepa- 
rate body with an independent 
Chairman, and which is an assurance of 
vigorous self - regulation and profes- 
sional responsibility. 

DMA members also agree, as a condi- 
tion of membership. 10 abide by The 
British Code of Advertising Practice 
and The British Code of Sales 
Promotion Practice: to apply the 
Mailing Preference Service rile when 
appropriate: and to subscribe to the 
Advertising Standards Board of 
finance (ASBOF) and to the Mailing 
Standards Levy as applicable. 

The DMA symbol can only be used by 
members. Printed on stationary', adver- 
tising and other promotional material it 
demonstrates that these companies con- 
form to the Association's high standards 
and are subject to the DMA's Code of 
Practice, thus enhancing the companies 
credibility with customers, suppliers 
and of greatest importance, the 
consumer 

Since the symbol was introduced last 
June, it has become synonymous with 
quality t professionalism and and 
responsibility. While it cannot be 
shown in any way which will become a 
sign of best industry practice and of 
strict adherence to DMA codes of con- 
duct. The symbol represents authority 
for members and reassurance for con- 
sumers. ll has been a high valued mark 
of confidence signifying to the con- 
sumer the truly professional edge of the 
industry.

INDI DIRECT MAIL 

Proudly Presents 

THE 

JAKES BRAMBLES COLUMN 


Hi, 

Ccwmodores decision to reduce the price of the 
Amiga 600 took everyone by surprise and really 
positions the A6Q0 as (he perfect entry level com- 
puter , 

Of course the problem with new technology is that 
something has to be left behind und in Commodores 
case it's the poor oid 500. 

Now Indi tell me that Commodore are taking back 
all old ASOO's when you buy a new state of the art 
Amiga 1200. So dust off that old A500 make sure 
that it is in full working order and you still have the 
mouse, modulator, manuals and power pack. Give 
Sndi a call on (1543 419999 and ask for M Amiga 580 
Trade in Desk 11 , Indi will send Securkor to your 
home and pick up your A5Q0 at their cost and then 
deliver a superb new Amiga 1 200 with £100 off the 
advertised price. Remember this is a limited offer 
What's a PCMCIA slot i ask L ? Indi explained to me 
that its Commodores way of ensuring that both the 
Amiga 600 and 1200 can remain future proof. Credit 
card style memory cards are already available from 
Indi but thats just the beginning, faxes* modems ana 
network cards are on their way and who knows what 
else. If you need to know more about PCMCIA wh> 
not drop me a line. 

On the subject of letters I have been swamped. It's 
absolutely great and I promise each one will be 
responded to and get a signed photograph so keep 
them coming! Last months winning letter came from 
Adrian Simpson of County Dow n Northern 
Ireland who gave a very well informed comparison 
between Amiga and less useful consoles. 

I was absolutely knocked out with ull the details he 
sent me concerning the music capabilities of the 
Amiga. Adrians letter was far too detailed to reprint 
but a big thankyou to him for writing it, Adrian the 
prize is on its way; 

WHAT DOES THIS SYMBOL MEAN 



Finally I received a few important letters asking 

what is the DMA and why is at important to con- 

■ 

sinners that Indi is part of it. On thai-s page you will 


Find a letter from the Chairman of the DMA, it's

on for special pricing and pro motional 
■ . vvances, restructuring costs and asset 
wnfedown. 

But at $42 million, the firm’s operating 
shortfall was more ihon expected for ihe sec- 
quarter punning and the total loss for the 
■ months ending March 3f was $273.6 
m*m 

During the quarter Amiga sales were down 
25 per cent, and combined with price-cutting 
■~r computer gave a revenue drop of more 
45 per cent. 

We are extremely disappointed with our

COMMODORE have an ambitious plan to 
use the next generation of Amiga graphics to 
springboard the firm into the mass business 
market, Amiga Computing can exclusively 
reveal 

According to Ehc manufacturer's joint general manager David 
PleaHnce* the first product using the technology :i? due next -um* 
mer and will combme an Amiga and a PC inside a single case. 

He says the "A^DOO" - wit] build on existing technology with 
graphics ten times more powerful than the AG A chips found in 
the A1 200 and A4000. 

The firm had already announced that future high-end graphics 
will include four custom chips, d tme colour resolution of l^OiXI x 
LOGO pixels and mu triple blirter support. 

RISC - standing for Reduced Instruction Set Chip - processing 


wilt make the machine five times faster than 
current models and PC compatibility will 
come through Windows NT. 

The new version of this popular front-end 
software can be run without DOS and be 
taken onto platforms other than traditional 8CTx&6-based PCs. 

Marketing details are yet to be fixed but according to David its 
price wilt be competitive with Pentium (586) PCs and it will targei 
the mass business market. 

He ridded that the machine will be all things to all men and,, 
unlike many development projects he has seen before, this one 
looks certain for release. 

Asked whether the machine would include a DSP and SCSI-1 1

COMMODORE knocked £100 off Ihe 
price of an A12QQ during a recent 
trade-in promotion aimed at encourag-

The deal was available through 
Independent dealers during June,

handed over a fully -working Amiga 
with its mouse, power supply and 
modulator, 

The manufacturer said the offer was 
"an opportunity not to be missed for 
thousands of enthusiasts and claim 
that the 32-bil computer already has 
70,000 owners m Britain. 

Commodore boss David Pleasance 
said: "Even though we launched the

Harlequin: How features more 


A SUBTITLING system suitable for pH and on-line production has jusl been released tor 
the Amiga by Manchester- based Zen Computer Services (061-793 1931). 

Many of Euro-TitleTs features have been developed for requirements in a broadce&t 
environment and have led to the system being chosen by Granada TV 

A video overlay card enables near-broadcast quality subtitles to be previewed over 
the source video for off-line work. 

On-line the output can be direct from the Amiga or downloaded to an Aston 4 caption 
generator. 

Timing comes from external VITtX LTC or Midi timecode via an external reader or 
internal VITC/LTC card. Alternatively, the Amiga can generate the timing reference. 

It features Ascii support, one or two- line subtitles, boxed or unboxed, anti-aliased font 
support, cue setting and editing facilities,, script printout and several limscode reader 
options. 

A broadcast version is also available boasting Aston 4 support and external keyer 
control. 

It costs £1 B0 for the standard version, £380 for Euro-Tiller Broadcast, £450 tor a VITC 
internal reader card and £530 for an LTC option. 

The manufacturer can supply and install tully-conligured systems or individual rtems 
for existing Amiga users. Complete system prices excluding VCRs 
start at £1 .300. 


Subtitles for video work 


Printing at high speed... 

SFEEDJET 300 U ihe name of Seiko&ha's new inkjet printer, a model the manufacturer 
claims offers high quality and low noise printing at up to TOO characters per second. 

The firm say high speed printing h available on plain paper, transparencies or 
envelopes, and is achieved by using a new high capacity print head. 

Its 16k printer buffer can be expanded with optional l2Hk and 256k expansions,, and a 
single-sheet feeder capable of holding up to 100 sheets of paper is supplied . 

Speed JET's fonts include letter quality Dutch 801, Letter Gothic and Courier in^arious 
styles. They can be printed in verti- 
cally or horizontally at up to 300 
dots per inch. 

It includes HP DeskJet 500 
emulation and costs 059.

Bigger Harlequin 
targets animators 

ANIMATORS jnd multimedia users are among those targeted 
for Harlequin Plus, a new version of the original 32-bit frame- 
buffer from Amiga Centre Scot Land (089 667 563), 

I lie board contains a line up of new features including a foil 
screen 4-bit overlay - 16 colours from a palette of 16,8m - which 
is fully independent of the main 24-hit display. 

The Harlequin standard 24-hit output can now he fed through 
a colour look-up table for real-lime gamma correction, colour 
cycling or colour transformation. 

And it also has a true colour 15-bit mode with 32 r 76ft colours 


and an tkbit mode with 256 colours, as well as a pseudo-colour 
H-bil mode with colour cycling. 

Other new functions are a built-in genlock, broadcast stan- 
dard output synchronisation and signal levels, revised screen 


resolutions and faster screen updates.

Supra speed accelerator 

SUPRATURBG 28 is a new aoceleratgr that increases line speed of A500 and 
A200Qs Iron 7MHz to 2BWIH*. without requiring the existing processor lo be 
replaced. 

According lo developer Supra Corporation, tests have shown that ttie board sig- 
nificant enhances disk-intensive processes, animations, compiling programs and 
displaying graphics. 

I| Is compatible with the Amiga's 68000 processor and although most software 
works alongside (he accelerator an external switch slows the computer for trouble- 
some applications. 

"The SupraTurbo 28 grew out ol customer demand," said Supra, boss John 
Willey. 

'Amiga customers have been lei ing us they want Itieir existing computers lo run 
faster without compromising either their already-installed peripherals or their pock- 
etbooks," 

The A500 version plugs into the external expansion, bus and a pass-through slot 
allows users to connect expansions such as hard drives and memory 

A200D owners plug their accelerator into the computer’s 86-pin expansion slot. 
Additional internal peripherals can be also be added. 

Supra's British distributor is Leeds-based First Computer Centre (0532 319057). 
Price: £1 29.99.

sales push 


SCALA UK have just signed a deal 
with ThornfEMl under which the latter 
will push the Amiga-based informa- 
tion system InfoChannei further Into 
industry as part of their product 
range. 

Some large companies are already 
using the system, an information and 
advertising tool that can schedule 
transmissions and update informa- 
tion to an unlimited number of TV 
screens. 

At its centre an Amiga uses a com- 
bination ol high quality graphics, 
photo-realistic pictures., motion, 
sound and interactivity to transmit 
and control information. 

Barry Thurston, director qf Scale 
UK, sakh Thor rtf EM I have consider- 
able experience and expertise partic- 
ularly in the corporate add hotel 
industries. 

'This gives InfoChannet IC4QD a 
strong foundation tor establishing 
itself as the number one multimedia 
communications and information sys- 
tem available on the market today." 

Meanwhile, Scale have announced 
details of companies who have just 
employed InfoChsnnel for the first 
time. 

At Denmark's Aalborg Airport II is 
used to update flight information and 
promote airport services white Hilton 
Hotels have installed systems around 
the world, - 

Other newcomers include the Bank 
ot Scotland. Co-op supermarkets, the 
Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland and 
several cable television companies. 

And even computer manufacturer 
IBM turned lo Scala on the Amiga 
when they needed to make a presen- 
tation to businessmen at a recenl 
technology show in Germany. 

But the package has also taken tc 
sea on board several cruise ships 
and ferries. It displays information or 
ports, tourist attractions and shop- 
ping facilities. 

Ships using the system include ihc 
i MS Statendem travelling between Bar 
Francisco and Fort Lauderdale anc 
DFDSt Scandinavian ferries sal line 
between Harwich and Denmark.

What 1 s

Denny Atkin on the latest realignments 
in the US Commodore market 


T his month I'd hoped to have a 
report for you on all, the neat 
Amiga titles shown at the 
Consumer Electronics Show in Chicago, 
Illinois. 

Unfortunately t although PC, Mega 
Drive, SutperNES, and 3 DO titles filled an 
entire building,, there was only a single 
bnoEh that even had Amiga? in it - and 
the nameplates were alt covered up by 
Video Toaster 4000 labels. 

A few US games companies did 
acknowledge that they still have some 
Amiga titles in the works, hut almost all 
of those were being developed in 
Europe. 

A notable exception were Interplay, 
who are developing the Amiga port of 
Star Trek; 25th Anniversary in the US. 

a 

Electronic Arts mentioned Desert Strike 
and an AG A version of Syndicate, and 
Psygfwsis said their recent acquisition by 
Sony wouldn't affect the 11 Amiga titles 
currently under development. 

NewTek's Video Toaster 4000 booth 
was actually one of the most crowded at 
the show, although how much of that is 
attributable to the Toaster JdOO's incredi- 
ble capabilities Compared to how much 
Could be credited to fascination xvi th 
IS'ewTek demo megftbabe Kiki 
Stockhammer could be debated. 

The Toaster 4000 has things like real- 
time 24-bat (OK. HamS, but who can tell) 
animated wipes, an incredible new revi- 
sion of LighlWave 3D. and more, 


However since it still only works on 
NTSC machines, J won't tantalise you 
any further. 

For American Amiga gamers, CE5 
was a truly depressing experience, Ihe 
American games market for the Amiga 
seems to have taken its last steps (mostly 
due to stores not wanting to carry lower- 
volume Amiga titles when they can 
devote the space to PC and console 
games). Almost all our titles come from 
the UK, and that doesn t look likely to 
change. 

SHOW STOPPER 

The Amiga's spiritual heir, the 3 DO 
"Interactive Multiplayer" designed by 
Amiga luc alumni R J Mica! and Dave 
Needle was a big attention-grabber at thy 
show. 

This CD-ROM based console has fast 
full-cotour graphics, and texture mapped 
3DO games ivere on display at about half 
of the booths. 1 1 Vs a hot little machine, 
and is probably what the Amiga would 
be had it been designed 10 years later. 
Technically it's nearly per feet r but it 
remains to be seen if there's a market for 
a S7DQ (£460) game machine. 

3DO was adamant that it was an 
Interactive Multiplayer, not a games con- 
sole, but 90 per cent of the titles on dis- 
play were games. 

Commodore were at the show, but 
they didn't have a public display. 
Instead, there was a small private room 


with a darkened window. Of course, this 
investigative reporter smirk a peek 
inside, but all I Saw was Commodore 
Engineering's Jeff Porter talking to a 
businessman with an Amiga 1200 against 
the wall 

Commodore were probably using the 
opportunity to try to find retail outlets to 
carry its upcoming 5300 (£197) CD-ROM 


games machine. The machine has lots of 
potential, w p Uli AC A graphics and 
MPEG video decompression, but with 
Commodore's recent $177 million loss 
on sales of only $120 million, it's 
unlikely they can mount a marketing 
effort lo compete with 3 DO, even 
though their machine is only half the 
price. 


Pegged picture 

You have a brand-new Amiga 1200 and you’ve been using a raytracer to create awesome 
AG A pictures. But now your 80Mb hard dnvs is crammed full ol pictures. 

What do you do? You could use JPEG compression to shrink your pictures, but your 
rendering program doesn't support JPEG, and neither does PPalnt. Heifner 
Communications has a solution m PEGGER, an automated JPEG compression program. 

II you create AG A or 24-bit graphics on your Amiga and you’re not familiar wilh JPEG, 
you should be. This format can shrink graphics files by a factor of ten « more, storing 
800k 24-bit files InodyBOK 

Now you can store 1,000 pictures on a 50Mb drive instead Of 60 or 70. JPEG is a 
lossy' compression, and does lose a bit ol picture resolution, but the results are rarely 
noticeable* 

PEGGER runs in the background and automatically compresses and decompresses 
pictures, so you can use it with program like DPaint IV AGA oi V*slaPro that don't have 
built-in JPEG support. If you're ARexx-sawy f you can use PEGGER '$ ARexx port lo con- 
trol compression from other appl -Gallons. PEGGER uses highly-optimised code, so ft can 
handle the compression quickly without bogging down your other process^ 

Be$t of alt, PEGGER works on small portions of pirturas. so you can process huge pic- 
tures witfi on an unexpended A1200 - something thal's impossible with image processing 
programs li ke AD Pro and ImageMasten 

Pegger requires ArmgaDOS 2 or 3, and will support Commodore's DSP lor even faster 
processing when Ihe chip is finally shipped, It lists for S95 and is available from Heifner 
Communications, 4451 L7Q Drive NW. Columbia. MO 65202 USA; phone (314) 445-6163; 
fax (3 14) 445-0757 


Mr Sulu, you 

With all ihe multimedia software creation toots out there - 
Can Do. Amiga Vision. Hyperfiook, Director 2, and others 
- is there really room for another one? When it's one as 
sophisticated: as Helm, absolutely. 

Helm combines draw, paint, and image-processing 



tttate a takirtator program tu/ng 


have the helm 

tools with a scripting fanguoge, a hypertext database 
manager, and an incredible assortment of objects you 
can use to create user- interfaces for your programs,, 
Among the objects you can use in your files are pages 
(which can be turned and browsejl through like Ihe real 
paper ones), forms, buttons, charts (bar, pie, line - you 
name it), paintable fields, ARexx "action" objects, and 
Amiga-style gadgets. 

The included tools aren’t just basic, barely useable 
hacks., The pains-program is full -featured, for instance, 
wilh features like Bezier curves and even chaos fills, 
Image-processing filters such as the ones included in 
AO Pro am available lor u$o when creating your presen- 
tations - this is one versatile package. 

It Fully supports IFF SSVX, ANIM5. tLBM, and even 
5MUS music fites. It works well in PAL as well as NTSC 
modes, and includes a very complet®, well-written 
manual. 

You'll learn lots, though, from looking al the 
megabytes of included demo applications. Helm ships on 



. rp (v n campicic Ei'.t C ■mwi'r 

seven disks, and most of those are packed with 
examples. 

tf you want to create "multimedia" applications (rather 
than shoot-'em-ups), you'll find Helm a wonderful tool, 
ft's a bargain at $129 (£83)= Contact Eagle T ree

hell 


A s this is the August issue of Computing, 
you should be reading it some fame in the mid- 
dle -of July, by which time the news of 
Commodore's Latest plans for the Amiga should be at least 
as hot as the weather. So will you Like what they have in 
store for us? 

Leaked exclusively to this magazine. Commodore's 
stated plans involve what looks to be the AAA chip set 
allied to a RISC chip with, prosumably r h8iK)fl compatibility 
to provide a machine which is both a super-fast, super- 
graphics Amigj and a "Pentium'' 506 PC into the bargain. 

The fact that Windows MI docs not depend nn existing 
PC hardware and can be used across a variety of machines 
means that it should theoretically be possible to write soft- 
ware entirely for an operating system rather than a 
computer. 

For the industry as a whole, this could mean increased 
flexibility, new sales opportunities and a welcome move 
towards standard Lsalioti.. 


Can Commodore unite the PC 
and Amiga in one box and expect 
them to co-exist in marital bliss? 



J *rV 


On the other hand., it could see the death of the Amiga 
and other platforms as distinct operating environments, 
and the ascendancy of the PC. An Amiga with a f K built-in 
might quickly be looked upon as a PC with an Amiga built- 
in. 

Can this affect the ordinary user 1 Probably not The 
A5000, as it is currently being called, is unlikely to be any- 
thing other than a very hi tgh end machine, and Lf as thought 
it is based on RISC architecture, the new Workbench will be 
radically different to its predecessors in any case. 

The most interesting aspeet of this development is that it 
might drag the inexpensive Amiga into a more corporate 
sphere, taking with it its knack for video, multimedia, and 
presentations. We have already seen a willingness on the 
part of the PC w r orld to use the Amigo where its talents are 
best employed . 

When IBM bunched us mil LH media extensions for OS/ 2 
(TBM r s own Windows, lookatike), they used an Amiga run- 
ning Sea la MM2 10 to control a video wall and various 
audiovisual sources. This sort of multimedia extravaganza. 


now an established fact on the Amiga, Is quite new to the PC 
world, though they are catching up fast. 

There is no reason to believe that Commodore can't 
recover from [heir recent lushes m long as the much-vaunted 
recovery really kicks off, so with their established experience 
in the PC market and, of course, the Amiga, they should be 
in the ideal position to make the most of the two machines. 
Theoretically,, the marriage might work, but there are serious 
practical dlfficulties- 

Companies which work in the massive VC market and 
develop products, especially software, depend on a wide 
base of compatible hardware. 

Microsoft, for example, know that if Word For Windows 2 
runs on the 4Mb 386 in one office, it should work on just 
about every one of the millions of other such machines- in 
existence. 

However, give Microsoft a weird hybrid based on RISC 
architecture starting from an Initially very low market base 
and they might decide that their development resources can 
be better applied else where. 

In this situation, the portability of the operating system, 
be i t Windows MT r Workbench 4.0, or a combination of both, 
will be crucial. 

Manufacturers around the world are developing ways of 
making the computer below the operating system more 
transparent tu the software. Workbench 4J0 ! s retargetabte 
graphics being a good example, so the portability should 
eventually arrive. The downside is that even if this mar- 
riage goes ahead, it Will not he an equal partnership. 

In his comments to this magazine, David Pleasance 
made it fairly dear that he was aiming to give the Amiga a 
free ride on the bock of Windows NT into the PC business 
market, and if this is the way the A 5000 works out, it will 


cease to be an Amiga, Put another way, why should t 
matter to the corporate user which machine is naming 
his copy of Qua tiro Pro so long as the interface, operating 
system, and software itself is identical to all the oihr" 
machines? 

Only if the Amiga's multitasking capabilities can r* 
harnessed by the software will any difference be noticed 

i sr 

but for this a separate version of Windows NT will K 
needed. 

Our problem is that at the moment, all thoughts on the 
future of the Amiga are purely speculative. 
Commodore's plans are still only on record as unguardt d 
comments by various officials and no long term strategy 
has been revealed, 

We know chat exciting new technology is only a v®f 
or so away, with the 6806G, possible RISC development 
and fast 24-bit graphics, but many in the market are 
unwilling to waif for another yean 

If Commodore think I hut third-party manufacturers 
and the huge base of expectant end users can be fobbt".! 
off with vague promises of what may or may not end up 
on the production line, they have a rude awakening in 
store. 

It is a good sign that many top company men seem 
much more open about plans than used to be the caw 
but we will need much more concrete assurances. 

Any information Commodore release about fhtHr mar- 
keting plans and where they intend to take the Amiga 
instantly stimulates debate from individuals, user 
groups, and developers alike, generating feedback from 
those who will be expected to buy new products. Study 
it makes commercial sense to encourage this feedback 
and listen to it 1

THAT BIT BETTER THAN THE REST 









■ COVERDISK 



O K, so you've got the disk and 
now you want to create those 
fabulous morphs you've seen in 
Terminator 2. What do you do now? Weil, 
Starting up the program's a good idea. 
Here 's haw to go abou t it. 

Start your Amiga and put the disk into 
your floppy drive. Double dick on the 
CoverDLsk icon, then lake a look at the 
window which opens on your Workbench 
screen. 

There should be a single GreMorph jr 
icon labelled MakeCineMorphjr which, 
when double-clicked upon., starts a de- 
archiving process designed to produce an 
auto-booting disk containing CineMorph 
jr and a couple of sample images, Anyone 
in doubt as to what is happening during 
the de-archiving process should take a 
quick took at our Getting Started page 
overleaf. 

Once the CineMorph jr disk has 
been created, restart your Amiga and 
boot from the new disk. Double-click on 
the CineMorph jr scon and after a brief 
spelt of disk whining the main screen will 
appear. 

Two large blank windows dominate 
most of the screen,, and it is into these that 
we will load our images for a quick warp- 
ing tutorial, hirst of alL we most decide 
what son of project we want lo work on 
and, as memory Is tight, which is the most 
economic. Move to the Settings menu and 
select ihe Mode item. 

Three selections should be on offer

Single [mage, Dual [mage. and Sequenoe. 
We will choose Single Image, as this i.s 
very efficient on system resources, so 
highlight (he item and release the mouse 
button. Next, go to Ihe Cell menu and 
select Load Image. A file requester will 
appear showing the contents of Ihe disk, 
so click on the samples drawer in which 
you will find two small compressed Jpeg 
flics. Click on the filed called TinyGaLjpg 
then on OK. 

After decompressing, ihe face of a 
young woman superimposed by a grid 
will appear in both of the windows. This 
grid is where all the action lakes place as it 
is by moving the points on the grid that 
warping is achieved, and where well now 
carry out a quick test of the technique. 

Start by clicking on one of the points 
around the woman's nose in the right 
hand, (destination) window. The point will 
turn yellow and can be dragged to a new 
position if you hold down the right mouse 
button, Let's make her nose a bit larger so 
pull nut the points on either side of the 
nose until they are half way towards the 
next point in the grid. 

For a quick look at how this affects the 
shape of the face, go to the Morph menu 
and choose Preview Single, A window 
will appear in the bottom left corner of the 


Crazy Sue Goes On... 

Authors: Hironymous Jumpshoe, 

MC Madbrush, Di Braincrack 


This has to be one of the best PD platform 
games ever, il not the be-si, It is mors 
playable than the original Crazy Sue m which 
Sue defeated the evil Wizard of Doom. 

Now hi s wile, the Mispress of Death, has 
bewitched the land of Ereanor and ils inhabi- 
tants, Strange things are going on but thal's 
not all, as the wicked woman has also done 
the mosl terrible deed to our heroine by 
stealing her teddy bear. Thus, the scenario is 
set and your task is to help Susi in her fight 
agarnst the Mispress ol Death, 

As the game begins, a message appears 
instructing you to visit ail the dows. There are 
at least three huge levels, (we coulrin'l get 


past the third one), and we found that it is not 
necessary lo collect all of Ihe ohjecls or visit ell 
the doors in order to o&mpleie each of these. 

Most of the doors are locked and require a 
ksy or magic spelt to Often them. Assuming that 
you have access to one rf these, pulling down 
on the joystick win allow entry lo new rooms. 

Spells give Susi bonuses lake extra time, 
lives and the ability to jump extra high, Once a 
Scroll has been collected If musl be taken lo 
the high altar where the spell may be cast by 
moving the joystick down. 

During long sessions, press P to loggle 
the pause, but before taking a break, he sure 
to test that the game has stopped otherwise 






screen and a requester will pop up with a 
generate button and a slide r which con- 
trols which frame or the animation we will 
preview. 

As we wish to see ihe final result; you 
should drag the slider all the way to- the 
right (it should go to frame 25) and dick 
on generate, CineMorph jr will now inter- 
pret the new grid positions and warp the 



the clock will keep licking which will result in 
the lose of a life. 


There are plenty of nasties including gi^nl 
Spiders, snakes, armour-clad knights and 
escaped jack-in-the-boxes. Even tame 
objects such as hooks are decidedly deadly* 
Like all good games, this one is highly addlo 
five and sufficiently large lo keep everyone 
occupied for mocilhs.

take a while on standard A 500 Plus or 
A&00 machines, but which will be quite a 
bit fester on the A12DG- 

Gnce generation is complete we should 
have a much more puggish-iooking young 
lady screen. This is a very unflattering 
warp, however, so w e ll try- something a 
little less ugly. 

Make sure that the destination window 
is active by clicking on it, then go to the 
Point menu and choose Keset Points to 
restore the original square grid. Now well 
try a bit of multiple selection, a vital tool 
when manipulating lots of points 

Hold down the left mouse button and 
the Shaft key at the same time, then drag a 
box around the four points lying in a ver- 
tical line over the region of the woman's 
Left ear. The points will all turn yellow to 

indicate that they have been selected, and

should be abe to move them as one. 

To slim down our subject, move the 
four poinls slightly toward? the middle of 
the screen, then repeat the operation for 
the points on the other side of the face. 
Now try a quick sneak preview by click- 
ing on the generation button, at w r hich 
point you should notice how subtle

hidden features including multi- be I Is,

Traditionally, the object is to destroy 
all of the bricks before moving on to the

ball off the back wall eventually causes ii 
to crumble. The bail is ihen Irea to travel 
info the next stage. M you fail to move the 
bat to Itte ball quickly enough, rather than 
losing a life. Ihe ball returns to Ihe previ- 
ous slags. However, the screen will 
become mono and the gam splay

the resulting 25 frame animation should 
be less than 50k in size and should load 
in lo DPain! IV for later viewing. If you 
have an old version of DPaint which 
doesn't support HAM images, try ihe EHB 
(Extra HalTBrite, or 64-colour) option 
from the Render menu before generating 
the animation. 

Before rendering, notice that 
CineMorph jr asks you which should be 
the first and last images in the sequence. 
This is to avoid ihe lime consuming mis- 
take of generating any unecessary frames 
in a long sequence when a short section is 
required for preview. 

Of course, you needn't stop ivith this 
simple warp. Those wilh access to a hand 
scanner or video digitiser can upset all 
their friends and relations with a few 
choice morphs and warps, or can opt to 
carry out more complex fobs if memory 
permits. 

Experiment with, larger images, by all 
means, especially if you have 2Mb or 
more of RAM A 1200 owners should be 
particularly well suited to the morphing 
task, having both the extra memory 
and the additional firepower of" a 68020 
processor. 

To test the package's other talents, try 
morphing from the TinyGal image to the 

speeded up making It extremely 
drificult to calch the ball. Ultimately, if 
the first level! is re-encountered 
end ihe player fails to hit !he ball a life is 
lost. 

The game can be played by one or 
two players who may be eilher human or 
Ihe Amiga itself. It is even possible to 
select two computer players who battle it 
out while allowing you the chance to pick 
up some tips., There are five skill levels 
adjustable for each player so there as no 
reason for games against family and 
friends to become one-sided 

In order to take a break during a long 
game, press the spacebar. When suit- 
ably refreshed,, press M again and the 
game will continue. 


Tiny Guy image. This will not work on 
machines with only 1Mb RAM, but for 
2Mb owners i:t is simply a matter of choos- 
ing Dual Image from the Settings Mode 
menu item, Ihen loading an image into 
each cell. 

You can simply generate the animation 
as. it stands or experiment with tweaking 
it through moving points on the grid, a 
particularly useful technique to force the 
woman’s hair to murph down to the 
man's much tighter outline. 

jf at any time it is felt that there are too 
few points to the grid and that more pre- 
cise control is needed, say to make a face 
twitch its eyebrow, there are a couple of 
tricks w p e can pull to improve close con- 
trol, Holding down the right mouse but- 
ton, take a long look at the Point 
requester, where most of the editing 
action takes place. 

There are two important options in the 
middle of this menu. Add Row and Add 
Column. By highlighting a post and choos- 
ing either of these options, it is possible to 
insert a new row or column of points to 
effectively double the number of editing 
points available in the area where detail is 
required. 

Try a quick test on your own by adding 
these extra points around the area of an 
eyebrow - ihLs has been a common trick 
in TV dog food adverts recently, With a 
little practice the user can make a small 
section of a face move, a technique which 
is often far more effective than huge 
changes. 

When such dose work is required, 
choosing Zoom In from the Window 
menu and scrolling around with the cur- 
sor keys helps immensely. Hairlines are 
good places to play “’tricks"' with, because 
ihe motion and changes of hairstyles can 
be dramatic, yet it doesn't take as much 
effort to make them morph in an interest- 
ing fashion. 

Once the points are set in the mesh, you

can choose the way in which morphing 
takes plac^. The dissolve curve, which is 
the process of blending the colour infor- 
mation from one image into the other, is 
controlled for each individual frame. The 
t weening curve controls how last the 
motion of the points in the mesh is over a II 
o# the frames. With these curves you can 
have steady, even, transitions with a Linear 
curve, or a more surprising morph using 
sinusoidal, that starts slow l hen morphs 
verv fast. 

Find the Edit Tween ing option on the 
Cell menu and draw a curve with the left 
mouse buutton which starts steeply at first 
then flattens off towards the end. If the 
animation is rendered again,, it should be 
obvious that changes take place rapidly in

There's more too... 

While you can morph and warp in your heart's content, we've kept a few things 
out for those whi/ve purchased CineMorph from their local dealer- The menu known 
as Sequence isn't available in this version of CineMorph and it's absolutely crucial to 
morphing moving images, Purchasers also get quite a nice manual with the pur- 
chased version and they can get upgrades of CineMorph from GVT as well- Owners 
□f ImageFX. GVP's image processed /24-bit paint software, will also will find that Jfcieir 
copy of CineMorph has all these features and a few extra special additions of it"s own. 

What is a morph? 

Morphing, also known as pdytnorphirLg and metamorphing, L& a technique pio- 
neered by Tom Brigham of the New York Institute of Technology and demonstrated 
at the 1962 3GGRAFH film show, It took until 1987 for Doug Smyth, a program- 
mer/animator working for Industrial Light and Magic, to reinvent and improve on 
the original work for use in Ron Howard's film Willow. 

This software evolved and Improved through the years and was used in other films 
such as Itsdkm f& tg? and the Lasf Cmsade and Ttmintitor 2. This exact same Hollywood 
special effects technique in uiwd Ln CineMorph jir, the standalone morphing software 
from GVP and Nova Design, which you now have in your hands. You can turn raw 
software power, and your imagination and skill, into eye-popping morphs and warps 
to amaze your friends with!

Mmisola is a strategy game flayed 
against a competent computer opponenl 
II i& pfoyed on a grid and at each turn 
players move (heir counter to an adja- 
cent position, then destroy a square. To 
win, your opponent must be forced into a 
situation where a mgvg cannot be made. 

By default, the game is battled oul on 
an eight by six board but these dimen- 
sions may be altered, using the prefs 
opiton, to any configuration from four by 
five up to ten by ten , 

Winning, any strategy game is made 
easier by knowing whether the first 
player to move has ^n advantage, equal 


odds or a disadvantage. The game is 
made lair by alternaimg the lira! player to 
move but ifiis can be changed using the 
program's built in preferences. Of 
course, you do need to ligure out 
whether to go first or second in order !o

COVERDISK ■ 


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


v * * readers may have difficulties 
ng our CoverDisk, so we have 
■ r tided this page to help you out. 
Below we explain how to copy 
ftlw from one disk to another, how 
■ £0 py the entire CoverDisk and 
how to de-archive programs, none 


of the first things you must do 
when get your CoverDisk Is make a 
backup copy, then put the original 
CoverDisk away for safe keeping. 
As a rule you should also do this 
with the majority of your software 
collection. 





i 


How to make a backup 


t g copy the Entire CoverDisk, load up your Workbench 
X then either click once on the CoverDisk icon and 
elect Duplicate, or select Copy from the Workbench 
~ienu, or open C LI /Shell and type; 

DIHUFY FlflK IfUi TO |FD: 

hen prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source disk) in 
M: and be ready to replace it with your blank disk (the 
test nation disk). Follow the Amiga's on-screen prompts 
until the disk copy is completed. Now put the original 
-way in a safe place and use your backup. 



■ 


Copying individual files 


p ou might at some point want to copy a single program 

* r om a CoverDisk to your compilation. Workbench disk or 
even your hard dove. 

To do this youll need the COPY command. As most 
CoverDisk programs are stashed away in their own direc- 
tories, the quickest way to copy a program is to copy the 
•vhole directory at once. Use the command; 

tflPr (dtrf-itpryj TG (fi*ndisk> ILL 

where {directory) is the full pathname of the directory 
you wish to copy, and {newdi.sk} is the name of the disk 
and directory into which it will be copied. 

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

r&PT COYER DIM*?! mums /FIEF TO HREKMK1 JJFRED UL 



So if you have copied a program from the CoverDisk 
to your Work disk or hard dnve make sure you also copy 
any other files the program requires, is fonts, libraries, 
device drivers and Ccommands- 


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

Once you have moved a particular program to where 
you require it you could experience some problems run- 
ning 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 PowerPacker, so when 
you try to copy them to another disk and then try to read 
them you can’t unless you have also copied the 
Powerpacfcer library into your LIBS drawer. 



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 file which is much smaller, giving 
us space to fit more programs onto the disk. 

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

Say we have archived a program called FRED. You 
simpiy double click on FRED'S icon, and will be asked if 
you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to. Type *y ,r 
or "fT 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 Wank 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 « 
instructed in the CoverDisk pages. 

Note that it you have a Workbench 2 or upward 
machine you must boot with the CoverDisk writer 
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 on the 
CoverDisk will work on your machines. 

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

your business will certainly suffer. 

As any professional will tell you, good 
editing can make fairly poor material look 
great whilst the reverse will always make 
the best footage look absolutely diabolical. 

You only need to watch the average 30 
second commercial to see the impact that 
good editing tan have on a production, 
and like it or not, for that degree of profes- 
sionalism a dedicated editing system is

BLACK BOX 

As you can see from the photography. 
Videopilot is a fairly impressive pice :e of 
equipment that's come a long way from 
its first incarnation as a plain black box. 

Those who remember its predecessor 
may recalt that in the old days everything 
was controlled via the Amiga. 

Now however that’s all changed arid 
not just to improve the aesthetics. After 
quizzing the user base, the creators of 
Videopilot discovered that control via the 
keyboard wasn't always the best way to 
exploit the system. 

By design most video suites are fairly 
gloomy and as a result fumbling around 
for function keys wasn't ideal- As a result 
the new redesigned mimics the approach 
employed by pro edit systems offering the 
ease of use and friend [y ergonomic design 
offered by its infinitely more expensive 



rftr Vtdvapitot ttll scrrrrr y.i'fjp oti -ttnt hrtp If problem* appear 


broadcast counterparts. 

During the transformation, the bland 
black box underwent a complete overhaul, 
which as you can see now boasts large, 
well defined keys for all major functions 
plus a new jog shuttle feature for frame by 
frame advancement. 

In addition an assortment of ten mode 
Selectors run along the top of the unit 



which again work to consolidate and sim- 
plify control of the system. Aside from the 
somewhat awkward keyboard control of 
its predecessor, constant shuffling from 
the keyboard to Videopilot was also high- 
lighted as a problem. 

As a result the aforementioned buttons 
provide a men ns of controlling almost 
every aspect of the editing process with- 
out any need tor intervention via the key- 
board. 

From the buttons you can automati- 
cally switch between any one of the three 
player units or the target recorder. In 
addition you can initialihe assembly, pre- 
view edits before committing them, insert 
edit, audio dub, reset the counter and 
even link to external mixing desks 
equipped with an ICC Bus 

TERRIFYING 

Moving to the rear of the unit, ease of 
use seems to have been forgotten thanks 
to a terrifying array of connections span- 
ning the entire length of the unit. 

However looks can be deceptive qnd in 
fact the various elements are split into 
individual sections for each player the tar- 
get recorder and monitor, 

As for the players, each of the three 
allow connection of a Bcait for composite 
in /out, twin \ /C in and outs, a composite 
monitor out, an LTC - or Linear Time 
Code-in plus the essential remote control 
out- 

On the record side, the setup is pretty 
simitar with identical composite and Y/C 
I/O options plus remote conim] port. 
Aside from the player and recorders, the 
only other ports pertain to the monitor 
which again boast both composite via a 
Scartr Y/C plus the essential LTC out - 
used to strip timecode onto tape where 
necessary. 

a" 

IJue to the complexity of connection, 
cabling- up any videographic exploit can 
be tricky especially when up to hour VCRs 
and a monitor all converging on one 
point. 

However the whole concept of the rear 




■ VI DEO 


► 

panel revolves around ihe fact that once 
connection is complete there* no need to 
touch anything again - with the obvious 
exception being camcorders. 

Setting-up 

Assuming the appropriate audio /video 
connections are complete, the next task is 
to transfer transport control from the 
VCRs in tint? Videopilot. To achieve this, 
some form of remote control is essential 
which in the case n i Video pi lot means 
cither infra red or direct connection lo the 
remote edit options found on the better 
VHS, Hi8 and S-VIIS VRCs and cam- 
cordens 

Aside from pulling in the appropriate 
cable or alternatively placing the infra red 
sensor, the only other task is to select the 
necessary VCR and control combination 
from within the software. 

like the rest of the package, the selec- 
tion is a simple icon clicking procedure 
until the appropriate combination pop* up 


for the player in question. 

Unlike its predecessor, the new version 
doesn't provide the full infra red memori- 
sation offered in the past hut instead 
comes with a huge selection of presets 
covering all the major manufacturers. 

Admittedly this may cause occasional 
compatibility problems with the more 
obscure makes but this should be 
extremely ram and can be isolated prior to 
purchase by your distributor 

Assuming hardware selection, connec- 
tion and remote control have been set up 
and of course checked via the program's 
built-in test facility the final task is lo 

f r 

select the appropriate timecode option tor 
each player/ recorder. 

Apart from the obvious attraction of 
the new unit and the case of use inherent 
throughout both the software and hard- 
ware, it's the unit's timecode options 
which makes* special. 

Unlike most editing systems. 
Videopilot doesn't Mick to a single propri- 
etary timecoding system. In fact alt the 
major semi- pro and home formats are 


supported with the only exceplion being 
the broadcast standard of SMPTE. 

According to Videopilot"* manufacture 
ers, SMPTE may be supported in the 
future but for now well put it aside and 
concentrate on the four formats directly 
supported. These include V3TC, RCTC, 
L1C and counter - which isn‘1 strictly a 
timecode and a* a result isn't particularly 
accurate. 

However in the case of the VITC, RCTC 
and ITC the situation is a good deal better 
with frame accuracy at or between 1 to 3 

■4 

fps on better quality VCRs that have been 
set up via the software's inerts A control 


system. 

Once applied the software automati- 
cally takes into account the idiosyncrasies 
of each VRCe mechanism - and thereby 
improves performance 

In the simplest - and preferred - con- 
ligu ration,, the original tape or Jl rushes" 
will already be coded during recording 
either by VITC or RCTC, in which case 
Vide op slot will automatically read the 
existing timecode signal and still provide 
full stereo along with the video. 

If however the original tape wasn't 
recorded with timecode but is neverthe- 
less stereo. ETC come* into its own allow- 


CONFIGURATION 5 UMAHRV 



Internal titling 

In an obvious attempt to bake the perfect cake, the software designers have 
thrown in a final blob pf icing In the form ol a built-in titter. Although basic It does 
offer a very smooth scroll and crawl in addilbn lo a basic page by page flip 
As is the case with most fillers, It s only really al its best in combination with a 
genlock - which as a mailer of interest sits in-line between ihe recorder out and 
the player* 

As mentioned, things are pretty straightforward but you are given the option So 
mix up lo four different fonts on a single page, with each being any one of the 
lour available colours both with or without drop shadow. 

As is the norm, the colours can be adjusted via a paletle requester., while the 
text Mself can be justified either left, right or in the centre of the screen. As you'd 
expect, scroll speeds can be adjusted as required providing a useful if not spec- 
tacular addition to the overall package.

Excellent software 


Although briefly touched on in she main article,, Ihe almost 
forgotten software accompanying Ihe Videopilot is nothing 
Short of excellent, especially for those who aren't particu- 
larly au fail with the Ampga - or indeed video 

As you can see from Ihe screenshots, initial set-up is 
very straightforward with the prompt window at the bottom 
of (he display automatically diagnosing Ihe pos&ible cure 
lor any hitches you may encounter. 

In addition, a lest screen allows a complete rundown of 
Ihe control options in order to isolate missing connections 
or incorrect limecode protocols for each VFlDcamcorder 
on Ihe system. 

Once everything checks out, ihe entire configuration can 
be saved lo disk and recalled when necessary allowing 
inslant access to any set-up combination you might 
require. 

To begin the editing process you simply select the 
player of your choice and press play - all via the console of 
course. At this point the software will update its display 
with the appropriate player while the large counter displays 
the current frame counl. When ihe chosen in- point appears 



Amiga (omputiitQ

simply lapping on the insert key on the console will auto- 
matically add the firsl edit point which of course has to be 
followed by an out. Once the two points are added the soft- 
ware defauils io the description fieFd lo allow any com- 
ments to be added ll however you’re editing on the ily Ihe 



The ultimate in cat and poilc editing irr nl M i 


description option can be skipped by simply hitting return 
on the Amiga keyboard - at which point the software 
moves to the next edit line ready for a subsequent punch- 
in/punch-ouf. 

And of course you can swap (he input player al any time 
via the console - at which poml fhe software will automata 
cafly update. 

To continue simply press Play and hit ihe msert button 
where appropriate - a new edit will ihe join Ihose from Iho 
first tape or alsemate player 

This process can go on almost infinitely with numerous 
rapes from up lo three players ail involved in ihe production 
- regardless of format Better slid, when the rough editing 
is complete you can go back through the list fine tuning the 
edit points by typing ihe exact frame number inlo the iisl. 

In fad if editing on the roll isn’t to your taste you can use 
play, fast forward and pause to locate a specific shot - 
moving lo the exact frame with the console's jog shuttle if 
necessary. 

Then while still paused the frame can be added to Ihe 
list just like any olher. When edit marking is complete, 
there’s still more fun to be had via the program's cut and 
paste options,

option to avoid drilling. 

Although the prospect of in validating 
your warranty isn’t exactly attractive it's 
often outweighed by the power that LTC 
can provide in the form of accuracy and 
digital numbering of your timecodcd 
tapes. 

As a result, the software can even 
prompt you to insert the correct source 
tape iv hen required - something which 
can only be achieved with RCTC and 
V1TC by manually numbering the tapes 
and adding comments and control pauses 
during assembly. 

In short, for those who don't take their 
DTV that seriously LTC is perhaps some- 


thing that can wait until your warranty 
expires as mono audio is still available 
without the modification for those witl- 
ing to sacrifice a general ion. 

However if you take your videogra- 
phy seriously and perhaps more impor- 
tantly make money in the process LTC is 
a very templing option no matter what 
the implications. 

DOWN TO YOU 

Even with the problems, Vidcopilot's 
distributors claim that LTC modification 
can barely keep pace with demand, with 
over 90 per cent of the existing user bast: 
clamouring for the conversion regard Eess 
of the potential problems. 

As for a conclusion. Pm afraid it's very 
much down to you, Firstly there's the 
£1 ,300 investment in the editor itself, 
which may demand an extra £100 at least 
on modified VCRs - potentially invali- 
dating the odd warranty in the process. 

The obvious question has to be; 'Is it 
worth it?" In my opinion the answer is 
"Yes!" After fust a few minute? f guaran- 
tee even the most cynical videophile will 
lose any inhibitions about the cash or 
possible legal implications. 

However, if your videographic 


exploits rarely go further than the living 
rooms of friends and fa mil y Vd advise 
anyone you to think long and hard before 
investing in. a system that can, and 
indeed should, earn its. keep.

Better still, cut and paste isn't merely limited to single

VIDEO 


L aunched initially as a 12/34-bit 
display card, Ardra's AVideo24 
was one of the beet budget solu- 
tions to high quality video graphics until 
the release of the A 1200, at which point 
the bottom end of the 24-bit market was 
more or less wiped out 

To attract new sales, the unit had to 
evolve, in response to which the French 
designers added a couple of video connec- 
tors, a genlock, and a digitiser. 

The result is A Video Y/C, J product 
aimed much more at video work than 
standard Amiga display enhancement 
cards and, with its built-in genlock and 
digitizer, more a cut-price contender for 
the I V24 market than anything else. 
Whether Or not the competition is a dose 
one remains to be seen. 

A Video Y/C is an external device 
which connects to the Amiga's 23-pin RGB 
video port and provides a through con- 
nector for a standard monitor or TV mod- 
ulator. 

Unlike its predecessors, which relied 
upon the user prying the Denise chip from 



Ttrktit Itt f/Jiffrofll KflWt i grabi 

arc firctfVeflt, if a flttte on tk red snie 


ife socket, it should work with any Amiga, 
though upon connection the machine wdl 
need four inches of extra desk space at the 
rear. 

The cream coloured plastic box is fairly 
sturdy and sports a phono composite 
video and 5-pin mini -DIN socket for S- 
VHS (Y/C) connection alongside the 23- 
pin Amiga video through port. Other 
openings include five potentiometers for 
various hardware settings, more on which 
later. 

Software bundled with the package 
includes a variety of A Video utilities and 
the program A V Paint, a 24-bit paint pro- 
gram supplied in both normal and float- 
ing point flavours. 

Installation is easy and quick - though 
it assumes the use of a hard drive - and 
the user should be eagerly clicking on 
icons within five minutes of opening the 
box. 

Of the various programs found on the 


A Video disks, AVTools comes closest to 
forming a general control panel. From 
here, the user can choose to view picture 
or animation files, control the genlock, 
grab a frame from video, swap between 
lace and non- lace display, alter the video 
source RGB or YUV components, or con- 
struct an animation using AVRemap. 

There are no gain controls and the KGB 
sliders don't really provide as much con- 
trol over the source video as 1 would have 
liked, but given the adjustable poten- 


tiometers on the hardware Itself, users 
should he able to find a balance of his or 
her choice- 

These tiny pots can be accessed with a 
miniature screwdriver (not supplied), and 
offer the user direct control over lumi- 
nance (light) and saturation (colour) 
levels. 

Another three pots on the top of the 
box adjust the levels of output video lumi- 
nance, contrast and saturation, so there's a 
fair degree of flexibility in the system. 


Better design would have resulted 
software control rather than faffing abo 
with a screwdriver, but at least the cunti 
is there iti some shape or form . 

Of the software utilities -availat 
through AVTools, AVRemap was the o 
•which first drew my attention, promisi 
as it does to produce high quality anirr 
tiuns in full video overscan. 

This is rhe sort of claim one usua 
approaches with a healthy cynicism a 
which is usually blown away within m

VI DEOI 




The low cost 
AVideo board 
now has a 
genlock, digitiser, 
and S-VHS 


support, but is it 
a trade-off? 
::evte Kennedy 





Hit AVideo Y/C makes more of an 
►sr;- at it than most. 

If A V Remap, the user need only 

■tf We file from a sequence of, say,, 30 or 
* M'. traced images, select AVRemap, 
i &■. h'kc thy output anim file-, 
fc program then loads each image 
^ it in turn tn the anitn file. As all 
i!* -r np anims using the custom 

l &- -inimation format are 12-bit YUV 
** they contain less data and there- 
Penmate falter. For example, 30 files 


from an Imagine 24-bit render, each of 
which was over 700k in size, converted 
down to an anim file of about 1,2Mb 
which ran smoothly and at about IS 
frames per second. 

The amount of movement on this par- 
ticular anim was, admittedly, tar less than 
a full screen camera movement, but the 
sight of a true 12-bit image animating in 
anything like video speed is rare enough 
to be notable. 

Animations utilising more screen 
movement do not run with a speed or 
smoothness suitable for video work, but 
with a certain amount of experimentation, 
a reasonable medium is attainable. 

For work in presentations, the lower 
speeds achieved by some arums are still 
acceptable, so in this respect AVideo 
forms a viable alternative to the disap- 
pointing frame rates of most HamB efforts. 

One difficulty with animations at the 
moment is that a certain amount of screen 
clutter is caused by a hardware fault in the 
early AVideo Y/C units. This manifests 
itself in the form of ghostly lines in certain 
areas of the screen, but the board's distrib- 
utors have assured us that this fault will 
be corrected r 

LINKING IMAGE 

A second useful tool is A V Binder, 
designed to force other programs to use 
the AVideo display. This is achieved by 
loading the image which, say. Scala would 
normally display as a backdrop, then 
" binding"' this to a second image which 
AVideo will display instead. 

The user can thus create a lb-colour 
equivalent of a 12- or 24-bit screen., and 
when 5cala tries to load the 16-colour IFF, 
AVideo jumps in with ;ts own picture. 

What impresses most is when the bind- 
ing requester pops up to offer a selection 
ot eight transitions including dissolve, 
bloom, fade, and various scrolls, 

When the mask image is loaded into 
the user's presentation package., A V Binder 
wall not only show its own image instead, 
but will also use whichever effect chosen 
at the binding stage. Speed is controllable 
from 0 to 10, so using a PD slideshow pro- 
gram and a series of bound images, the 
user can construct a very respectable pre- 
sentations. 

AVBinder could work faster and with 
fewer quirks, but it adds a little something 
to the package's flexibility. Some presenta- 
tions wilt not reqmre the effect, and 1 
wouldn't trust it for important occasions, 
but for rolling demos and information 
screens AVBinder can bring extra colour 
and some custom flair. 

As AVideo works through an ARexx- 
Lompatiblc serve r r each and every tool can 
be controlled from within an ARexx script, 


* 

enabling the conversant user to build a 
wide variety of custom effects. 

Unfortunately, the Opera automatic 
A Hex* script generation software sup- 
plied with A Yideo24 is absent from the 
package, so only those w-ith the requisite 
ARexx skills will be able to make much 


use of the available facilities. 

This is a pity r as there are a number of 
transition effects, available to AVShnw as 
well as AVRmder, which can go together 
to make impressive slideshows and the 
like. The effects are available directly from 

► 






Basic paint package 


AVPaml, the bundled 12/24-bit painl package, >3 a fairly basic program capable of goad 
presentation graphics but largely unsuited lor complex painting tasks, 

Trie program opens a tier an initial selection screen from whicti the user can choose 
interlace or nan-interface. As video works in interlace or not af all, the choice seems a 
Strange one until it is noted that for interlace mode a whacking 2Mb ol chrp RAM is 
required, relegating users ol non-ECS Amigas to non-interlace. 

At lirsi, this seems a damaging Imitation, but as the AVLace loot (available, as usual, 
through AVTools} 'will add the extra field without messing around with pixel aspect ratios 
the less well-equipped user can negotiate the obstacle with a little extra eltort, 

internal bitmap sizes are kept at 736 by 566 to correspond with maximum overscan, 
so any images saved will automatically be of the correct type for video work. 

Painting and drawing toots are Ihe familiar DPaint-style collection, including freehand, 
filled polygons, aretes, end so on. with little or nothing at note about them, but Ihere are a 
couple at extras which stand out as nice touches. 

The text requester is a good example. 11 enables the selection of any tout, including 
CompuGraphic Intel if onts if available, and will type the text directly on the screen 
However once visible, the text can be positioned with ease anywhere on screen. 

Us ng the cursor keys, or Shift with cursor keys for faster movement, it is possible to 
find the best site lot a logo or title, then stamp it down. If the anti-alias toot has been 
selected, any stamped lexl will assume a smoothed appearance, though this <s less use- 
lul 'or graphics which are to he overlaid on Irve video. 

It is also possible to control gen locking and grabbing irom within the program, making 
it easy to preview any graphics, be iney titles or animations, which will eventually find 
their way into a produelion. 

Any videogrepher will tell you that (he facility to check lhat tiites wiln not disappear into 
the background when laid ov^r a similarly coloured piece at video is invaluably and a 
great time saver. 

As AVPaint directly addresses the AVideo hardware, any images grabbed using the 
grabbing facility are the same quality as (hose taken through AVToois, but with ihe added 
advantage that (hey are mere or less instantly available for retouching and the addition o! 
graphics using the painting tools 

Gradient fills are availably for producing backdrops and so on, but !hey are trickier to 
set up than they might be. Rather than produce a requester specitioaity for the use of gra- 
dients, AVPaint offers a single colour indicator wito a second button to select toe direction 
of the colour change The method is usable, but fussy. 

Other good Features include the use of slencii masks which can work over a spread of 
colours, and universal colour blending Using a slrderon the main AVPaint control panel. 

any amount of 
colour blend from 
zero to 100 per cent 
can be set and 
applied to any 
effect, from simple 
drawing to brush 
operations.

CL1 using a utility called AVCmd, but 
some ^ort of script building utility for the 
ordinary user would havebei?n a welcome 
addition. Typing command lines with 
multiple parameters and tricky syntax just 
to scroll An irrnge down the page is hardly 
what the 19%s user expects. 

Last of AVTods's bandy buttons is the 
AVCrab control, through which the user 
can exercise live control of the on-board 

Black box 
blues 

Unlike IV24, which now boasts a com- 
plete video splitter and switcher in th# 
shape d tea V1U black box, AVideo must 
make its way in the harsh world of video 
with only sis composite and Y/C video 
inpuls for company. 

One each of these grace the rear of 
the unit and through them AVideo 
recedes an its vitieo signals from the out- 
side world 

In eflsct, however^ the A^exx port 
from which AVideo is controlled can be 
used to reproduce some of the Junctions 
of a switcher unit All AFtexx commands 
which address the video ports, such as 
AVDigit (for grabbing) and AVGenlock 
can take a parameter to select either of 
Jhe sources. 

This enables AVTools to control which 
video port rs used for genlocking and 
grabbing, so two video sources can be 
connected at once without the user hav- 
ing lo faff about with cables or $oftware 
settings. Switching between the two is a 
matter of issuing an AFtexx command, so 
external programs - so long as they 
speak ARexx - can foe used. 

01 course. A Video used in Ihis fashion 
is nowhere near as flexible as Jhe IV24- 
VIU combination, and it has tee disadvan- 
tage ol not allowing ter an external fceyer 
or reference source other than the 
Amiga's own sync pulse, but users wite 
simple video requirements will nol need 
the GVP card's added power. 


digitiser. A small control panel with tog- 
gle gadgets lo select live video, freeze, 
lace /unlace, contrast, and cleanup, offer 
plenty of user input cm the grabbing front. 

Grabs are taken very quickly, in 1 /23th 
of a second, frozen images being stored in 
the unit 4 * 13 Mb framebuffer for instant 
snapping. Quality seems not quite as good 
as VLab or IV24, and there is slightly more 
interlace judder than on either of the other 
iwo units, but the finished images are Itu^ 
24-bit and of a high quality. 

At time of going to press, the first pre- 
release batch of A Video units suffered 
from red saturation problems in the grab- 
ber circuitry; but this is due for a hard- 
ware tweak before the public set eyes on 
the card. 

The screen grabs accompanying this 
article will look rather red in places and 
not up to scratch, but this situation should 
improve provided the proper alterations 
are carried out by the developers. 

For the moment, users will have to fid- 
dle with the AVTorfs KGB slide™ and the 
hardware settings, or perhaps reprocess a 
grab using ADFro to eliminate the red 
imbalance. Check before buying or keep 
an eye on our Updates column for the lat-

esl revisions. A Video's genlock suffers 
from no such problem. It is software 
switchable between the composite and 
Y/C inputs and provides a steady lock for 
overlaying Amiga animations or titles, 

to use, it: can offer 1 2 -bit animation 
from the AVShnw utility over the top of 
live video with dean edges which speak 
well of the unit's keying abilities. 

LOT OIU OFFER 

Comparing tills with the IV24, it is dif- 
ficult to see which is the better unit, and 
after several tests including graphic over- 
la V and titling, neither seemed to have a 
distinct edge, though die GVP unit's con- 
trolling software is undoubtedly better. 

This, assuming the minor hardware 
problems are rectified, is my only real 
complaint with A Video. As a package, it 
has a lot to offer, and as it is fully AR-exx 
conversant can offer varying possibilities 
to videographers and presentation profes- 
sionals alike. However, the accompanying 
software hide* much of its potential away 
behind an interface which could be 
friendlier and is in need of cosmetic 
surgery- 

A Video deserves to succeed as a low

Bits and 
pieces 

Many users who struggle with basic 
video concepts (most of us, if we re 
honest) will probably find the AVitteo 
12-bit siandard somewhat confusing. It 
is a hall-way bouse identical to that 
offered by IV24, in enable the use of 
animations which move at a reasonable 
speed, but for most other uses can be 
surprisingly useful. 

When dealing with TV graphics in 
particular, 16,7 million colours (as 
offered by 24-bit) is a bit over the top 
on most occasions, and when titling or 
adding the odd animation if is deciti- 1 
etUy an embarrassment of riches, lin 
such cases, I he 4,0% colours ottered 
by true 12-bit mode can be a mote effi- 
cient answer to the problem. 

As 12-bif Images contain a much 
smaller amount ol data, ihey are easier 
to store, animate faster, and are gener- 
ally easier lo work with than theft 
higher qualify but much bulkier 24-bit 
brethren. 

(n addition, there will often be little 
perceivable di (fere nee between 1 2-foil 
and 24-bit images once they have bnen 
recorded to videotape 

A Video's use of a decent 12 -bit cus 
tom animation format and its paint 
package’s icon-drive 1 2/24-bit switch 
leaves it the winner as Far as implemen- 
tation ol the format is concerned. 


cost multi-purpose video and mulfimedu 
tool, but whether it does will depend tm 
where it is taken from thus fair but still a lit 
tie shaky start. 

If developed in the user-friend linn-! 
department and cured of its irritating m\m% 
ailments, AVideo Y/C could knock a bu

M ulti tmedia as to the Amiga 
what petrol Ls to cars - with- 
out it the high end of the 
market would grind to a halt. It was there- 
fore a surprise that when GVP decided to 
move into the video and m ultimedia mar- 
kets, the company^ first attempt was less 
than completely successful, 

Priced at £1^800 and hampered by some 
truly appalling software r the first IY24 
package was given short shrift by review- 
ers across the industiy F a reception from 
which v2.Q is presently trying to recover 
Rebnxcd, repackaged and rehundled, 
TY 14 has shvd £8lM) from ib overweight 
price tag and gained *1 lew lean mean 
muscles in the form of additional hard- 
ware and software as A faces up to the 
challenge prised by a long list of excellent 
video cards including the Toaster 
I fariequin, and Opa [Vision, 

The result is a much stronger contender 
for the lucrative flesh pots that are the 
semi-professional and professional video 
markets. 

To banish from the outset rV24"s unfor- 
tunate heritage, GW have made efforts to 
improve the deficiencies highlighted as 
those of most concern, leading to 
improvements in three key areas: soft- 
ware, speed, and video- friendliness. 

Taken in combination, the improve- 
ments give this particular La /a r us not 
only new life, but a cut and blow dry into 
the bargain. In. essence, IV24 is a combirui- 



AVPaint h uUrful fw IMIf Itlf tiflrflcri 





GVPs IV24 has been brought back 
from the dead, but is it a shining 
resurrection or a walking corpse? 
Stevie Kennedy examines 

its full title, is a card for the Amiga 1500 


lion of 24-bit display card, framebuffer, 
genlock, digitiser, and flicker fixer in one - 
a multi-talented act which on the face of 
things should make it a steal at its new 
E&Ki asking price, 

Throw- in a video splitter and a copy of 
Caligari 24, ore of the Amiga 's most effec- 
tive and easy to use model ling/ animation 
packages, and the IV 24 begins to become 
on a very appealing prospect. 

However, such all-on-a-card solutions 
to video and multimedia often suffer from 
compromises and there are now so many 
superb cards cm the market, that not even 
this seemingly value-packed peripheral 
can be guaranteed an instant hit. A thor- 
ough look under the bonnet seems in 
order- Impact Vision 24, to give the board 



and upwards which makes use of the 
video slot found in those models. 

On the A3000 and A 4000, the unit fits 
snugly into the newer full length slots, but 
when using the more diminutive video 
connectors on the A] 51)0/ 2000, 3V24 takes 
up a Zorro slot and utilises a small card 
with a ribbon cable to lalk to the video slot, 
Users of already cramped Al 500s are there 
fore advised that TV24 needs a bit more real 
estate than certain oilier leading brands. 

Once fitted, the beauty of this card is 
that at the hardware level it is virtually 
transparent to the user, and when in 
bypass mode (selected via a 
small three-way switch on 
the rear of the card} the 
Amiga ignore tl altogether 
and will connect as normal 
to anv ordinary IDS*! -like 
15kH/ monitor. 

For those with TlkHz or 
multiscan monitors, Master 
mode enables the connec- 
tion of the monitor and the 
use of the card as a flicker 
fixer, but for most infers, 
the middle ground soft- 
ware-selectable mode wall

Doing th< 

The biggest hardware enhancement offered by the all 
new IV24 package over the first unite to hit the street 
is the Video Interface Unit (VIUJ, which is really a< 
RGB splitter and video switcher in a smooth btecl 

box. 

On the outside, the unit sports an impressive arra 1 
of video inputs. Including Iwo composite ports. Y fi 
(S/VHS). component RGB. external reference (for tin* 
base correctors and such like} and externa 
keyer. 

Outputs are slightly more restricted at one compos

MAIN MENUS 

>*ttware control of the board is virtually

rr v- inn to control all aspects of ]V r 24 in 
■< Most ust4ul of the three main menu 
wl n- is the screen controlling the VJU 
ftei r. enabling the user to select video 
' r e Sources, alter red /blue gain, bah 
luminance, and even sync timing. 

V IV24 has two buill-in keyeis (digital 
md analogue composite), an RGB to 
Mz posits encoder, and the VI U splitter for 
I Rvertsng composite video bn its red, 
p - ti «md blue components, the system can 
t- a wide variety of video setups. 

For example, either of th# VlU's two 
itc inputs Or the Y/C input can be 


used as an RGB source by IV24. and any of 
the above cun be used as a sync source if 
the external reference input is not in use. 

After a short and smooth teaming curve, 
therefore, and prompted on by the man- 
ual's excellent troubleshooting Q&A sec- 
tion, most users should find the system 
provides a rock steady video signal with 
plenty of options for 
either post-production or 
multimedia work. 

With inputs for two 
composite, one RGB, and 
one Y/C source allied to 
outputs for composite or 
Y/C taping, the IY24-VIU 
combination provides a 
very (lex i ble sem i-p rotes - 
siojij] base of operations. 

The card itself is a

includes a gix>d quality composite encoder 
which also supplies Y/C sign a Is, digital 
RGB keyer,. and analogue composite keyer r 
so there's a Ini crammed in there. 

In use, most of this trickery goes unseen 
by the user except when IVCP settings 
need to be changed. The digitiser is proba- 
bly the most impressive feature on offer, 
and works as well as, if rot better than, the 
usual VLab yardstick. 

Grabs are taken in 1 /25th second and 
there is tittle of the interlace judder some- 
times encountered with other grabbers. In 
addition, image clarity Is crisp and colours 
appear as they should without imbalances 
or bleed ing. 

Desktop Darkroom, used to capture and 
process images, is rather clunky and not in 
the usual GVf 3 house style for software 
such as that supplied with G-Lock, but 
there arc a fair number of filters and opera- 
tions on offer for users to retouch or com-

Painful 

painting 

Macro Paint 2.0, unlike iis predecessor, 
can actually be used for painting without 
the user risking severs sanity toss, As an 
upgrade, it is an admirable improvement 
with completely redesigned toolbox, 
greatly increased speed, and a distinct 
lack of bugs. Unfortunately, It still fails \o 
shine when set against its mam opposi- 
tion, OpalFaint, 

The basic painsing features are all 
catered lor, including lasso brush cuts, 
polygon fills and gradient fills, but little 
else jumps out of the screen as tar as 
advanced options go. Basic is as basic 
does, and everything MactoFaim uoes is 
just that - basic. 

It s not all bad news for IV24 user^ with 
a desire to wax creative, though, as a 24- 
bit pamt package will always suable the 
production ot impressive looking screens, 
even if the fancy perspective and brush 
effects of other programs are missing. 

Text coni ml is one particularly good 
area., The user can choose from any 
Amiga font and type in his or her text, 
Ihen before stamping it down caji move it 
around the screen using the cursor keys, 
This makos proper positioning very simple 
and c5 especially useful for titling a screen 
grabbed from video when, for example, 
plonking a red title over a very red part of 
the image would not be a good idea. 

Few other touches Spring tg mind., but 
there is at least a fairly good selection of 
effects for the application of paint or text 
and brushes 

AIRBRUSH 

Users can choose on a slide gadget to 
apply all new paint in tints from 0 to 10Q 
per cent, or by double clicking the air- 
brush Icon lo summon the paint melhod 
requester. 

A choice of tint, shade, smear and 
mono is on offer, along with Boolean 
operations lor basic special effects. In 
addition, Ihe FX icon contains luminance 
and contrast controls. 

In general technical specification, 
MacroPaint runs out quite wolf, with spare 
page rub-through, ARexx support, and the 
ability to apply effects and processes to a 
region of the semen rather than She full 
image. 

Most importanlly, perhaps, painting 
takes place in real time, and the colour 
which is chosen from the palette i& the 
one which will be seen as the user 
paints. 

With its improved interface and 
increased speed, MacroPaint is now a 
usable package which complements 
rather than damages the IV24 as a 
whole. Just don't expect it to win many 
medals. 

Without brush gradients and feather- 
ing. and b wodge off the now almost stan- 
dard special effects offered by other paint 
packages, MacroPaint still has a hill to 
climb.

or a fancy effect, the IV24's 

Achilles heel tear*; its ugly head as the user 
saves the picture to disk for use in 
Macropaint 

Now at vlQ, Macropaint hah progressed 
quite a way -from the unusable rubbish dis- 
tributed with the first lV24s. but it stiLL has a 
fair old way tt> go. It will no w draw in real 
time with the correct colour and speed has

associated with the latest versions oi

Other software supplied with the pack’ 
age includes the My LAD (live action direc- 
tor) utility i used to produce transitions 
between two live video sources. For 
My LAD to function, one must be connected 
to the V1U RGB inputs, but once the hard- 
ware is set up. My LAD will utilise the 
lV24'h keyers to produce an "cm the fly' 
transition from a selection of 52, any of

Probably the best 
general purpose 
video card for 
less than £l f 000 

which can be instigated by pressing die rele- 
vant key. 

Of limited use in some environments. 
My LAD would nonetheless be of assistance 
in those semi-professiond video producers 
wishing to edit two source tapes down to 
one while adding a little something extra. Its 
dependence upon live timing and Amiga 
key presses will no doubt nuke it a program 
whose use has to be mastered with practice, 
so those with unpredictable or inexpensive 
VCRs might nut find much use for it. 

IVPIP 

Possibly the roost talked about feature of 
the original TV24 at the time of its release, 
and still a feature of the second package, is 
TVFtP, ihc pkture-in-picture display utility*. 
This little program throws a window over 
the Workbench into which IV24 projects a 
1 2- bit display of the current video source. 

The window can be resized, zoomed out 
to full screen size, or the actual image sated 
in the X or Y axte r but though initially 3 
good idea, IVPIP is one of those clever utili- 
ties for which it is difficult to find a practical 
applkatiufi. 

No doubt a few ingenious owners will 
want lo monitor a camera input from 
Workbench or something like hut, but mOGl 
of us will take one look, say "'ooh, that's

Marvellous modelling 

Caligari 24, lor long one ol the most capable aid most under-promoted 3D modelling 
and animation programs cm the Amiga, is by lar and away the mosl exciting piece 0' 
software in the IV24‘s suite. 

In its IV24 version it is identical to the latest lull release ol the package except lhai 
rather ihan use a joyslick porldongle. Caligari24-IV24 uses me IV24. 

Since its lirsl review in this magazine, Caligari has undergone a great deal ol change 
and now cfteTS what must be the most elegant 3D inierlace of any package allied to sev- 
eral new and very powerful features. 

The old single object animation system has gone, replaced by a hierarchical system 
controlled through a simple timeline facility. Using the new features, a user will tied am 
mating a number of objects much easier Ihan before, but the ability to pick any pait o’ 

the object hierarchy and move it independently is a dream. 

Whim a complex object made up of several component parts is loaded into a scene 
the animation module can treat the component parts separately and give each of them 
its own limeiine, movement and path. The result is that wilhm minutes, very complex ani- 
mations can be produced with minimat fuss, 

Other new features include the excellent organic deformation capability, which makes 
the creation of smoolh natural objects much easier; vastly improved point editing, anc 
32-bit rendering, allowing lor an 8-bit transparency mask. Using Caligari 24, IV24 users 
should be able to produce everything Irom fiying logos to space battles with relative 

ease. 

Look out for a full in-depth review ol ihis package next month.

Printers can cause more trouble than 
any other piece of computer hardware 
Ben Pointer shows that with a little 
understanding, you and your printer 
can live together in sweet harmony 


there being only two types of printer - 
those that plug into the serial port and 
those that plug into the parallel port. 

The differences between the serial port 
ami the parallel port are not complicated. 
Data sent down the serial port goes one 
"bit" al a time. One Ascii character is dghl 
bits big - one "byte" - so to print a letter 
A, for example, the eight bits that make up 
the Ascii code for that: Setter have to be 
sent one after the other. 

RAPID TRANSIT 

If you could send all eight tills of a 
character at once, printing would be 
quicker, yes? And this is what happens to 
data sent down the parallel port - all eight 
bits that make up the Ascii code travel 
together down eight separate tint parallel 
lines, and ail arrive at the printer at the 
same time. 

Most modern printers have a parallel 
interface, some have both parallel and 
serial (or the option to fit cither J, a few 
still have only serial interfaces. [ can 4 
think of a single good reason why an 
Amiga user should buy a serial printer. 


Next there are the different ways that 
printers actually make marks on the page, 
impact dot matrix printers work by mak- 
ing tittle pins strike an inked ribbon, thus 
transferring a pattern of dots on to the 
paper on the other side of the ribbon. 

The cheapest type of impact dot matrix 


printer hay only nine pins in its "print 
head" and consequently the quality Ls not 
high because the characters it produces 
are made up of only a few, quite large 
dots. 

This type is good when printout quality

Amiga Computing August 1993 












Troubleshooters' guide 

If you select the Print option from a program and nothing gets printed, 
there are five basic things that you can check... 



Is the printer broken? Look in your printer manual lo find 
out how io execute the machine's softest fi the aeli-tesl 
wgrk$, obviously Ihe printer i$ not broken, 

0 1s the printer cable broken or incorrectly wired? The easiest 
way to check this properly is to connect another printer to 
your Amiga using the same cable. It would be best if you got 
someone who knows how to properly sel-up the Amiga (or printing 
to check Ihis. 

Is the printer's parallel/senal port broken? The easiest way 
to check this property is to connect Ihe printer to another 
Amiga, using a different cable II possible. 

□ Is the Amiga's paraHel-'serial port broken? The easiest way 
to find: oui is to connect some equipment lo your 
parallel/serial port which you know works because you've just 
seen it working on another Amiga. 

There are three peripherals that commonly use Ihe parallel 
port: hand scanners, sound/video digitisers, and printers. A 
modem Is the most common peripheral Thai uses the serial port. 





Is the software setup correctly? The most common problem 
people have when printing is that a requester peps up say* 


n*g that the-prcjgram can't print to* one reason gr another. Almost 
art of these error requestors get displayed because the 
Amiga can't find one or more system files that is required; for 
printing, 

These files are expected to be in certain directories on the 
disk from which you booted. It you haven't booted from the 
Workbench disk as supplied by Commodore - rnany applications 
are supplied as "bootable" disks for example - Ihe chances are 
That there are important files missing, or there might be old or 
new versions of files on the disk that are not completely compati- 
ble with the older or more modem version of Kickslart in your 
machine, 

No matter how awkward il may seem to you, the Amiga was 
designed to be booled from ihe Commodore Workbench disk, 
not from anyone olse's version of a Workbench disk. So if you 
get an error requester when printing, boot from a proper 
Workbench disk, Leave thal disk in the internal drive, run your 
applicasion from a second floppy drive, and try again, WhaS? 
You've only gol one disk drive? So buy another one! 

Remember that many printers contain more than one printer 
emulation, and if the machine is set to IBM mode, for example, 
and you use an Epson printer driver, you wifi probably gel 
garbage. The emulalion and the printer driver have to be 
matched. 


■ PRINTERS 

> 

i ti n. ' t important. Many businesses will 
ha vi? * cheap 9 pin printer hooked up io 
their client databases ready to print a few 
thousand address labels. Or hocked up to 
their invoking system, wh ere fancy qual- 
ity isn't important. 

But if yuu want to write letters that 
don't Look cheap and nasty, you need bet- 
ter quality. The next step up is a 24-pin 
printer; the pins In these are smaller, 
which memi 1 * that the dots they produce 
are smaller, and so the characters they 
produce are of a higher quality. 

These generally come with a few built- 
in fonts and produce so-tailed "letter 
quality rJ output. If you need a printer 
mainly for writing letters, a 24-pin impact 
dot matrix printer will be good enough. 

BANDING 

But if you want to print a lot nf graph- 
ics, especially if you want colour, think 
again. Every impact dot matrix printer l 
have ever seen suffers to one degree or 
another from J ‘ bar ding" when printing 
graphics. 

Because of very small inaccuracies in 
the paper feeding mechanism, the paper 
is fed through a little bit too much, or not 
quite far enough, which results In thin 
white or dark Lines across the printout. 

The main problem w r ith all colour 
impact dot matrix printers is that the rib- 
bons, which ate quite expensive, gel dirty 
very quickly indeed, so you ran print 
only a few decent colour pictures before 
everything starts to look * muddy' 1 
because Ihe ink from the black part of the 
ribhon is beginning to mix with the other 
colon rs- 

If high quality graphics are important 
lo you then forget impact dot matrix 
printers and start looking al ink jet,, hob- 
bit 1 jet und laser printers, 

Jnk jet and bubble jet printers use dif- 
ferent methods to spray Ink from a reser- 
voir or cartridge on to the paper. Both are 
also dot matrix printers because the char- 


acters they print are constructed from a 
matrix of dots, just like impact dot matrix 
printers, except ihw dots are a lot smaller, 
which means that the characters are of a 
higher quality than impact dot matrix, 
even though the claimed dots-per-inch 
(dpi) resolutions may be the same or 
similar. 

Be warned that some cheap ink jet 
printers arc not high quality, emulating 
old 9- pin Epson printers. Look for a 
graphics output resolution of at leawt 300 
or 360 dote per inch. Be warned also that 
because their paper mechanisms 
works in exactly the same way as impact 
dot matrix printers, some of the cheaper 


If you need a 
printer far 
letters, a 24-pin dot 
matrix will do„, A 

bubble jet printers also suffer from 
banding. 

The only w jel l! printers I have seen that 
don't suffer from banding are the 
Hewlett-Packard DeskJets and the Canon 
BJ-2W and BJ-230 bubble jets. And even 


l hen you need to use special "coated 
p<iper to gel the best results, which is j 
quite a bit more expensive than the ordi- I 
nary varieties. 


For printing colour graphics, the first 
printer you should consider is the 
Hewlett-Packard DeskJet 330C, which 
costs about C31R1 »£j 60£L This printer can 
produce superb results on the proper 
Hewlett-Packard paper. Nothing cheaper 
is able to produce decent printouts of 
25&-colour, HAM and 2-T-hit graphics. 

Believe it or not, laser printers are also 
dot matrix printers, for exactly Ihe same 



HIGH QUALITY 


Understanding CMD 


CMD is one of the most useful tools provided with the 
Amiga, yel is probably the least understood and used o! 
the Workbench utilities. 

According to Commodore the letters stand lor Change 
Main Device, which doesn't describe rts function particu- 
larly well because the program does nothing more compli- 
cated! than enable you to direct printer output to a file 
instead of a printer. 

Printing fg files has various uses. An obvious use is il 
you don't ‘havo a printer, but a friend does, and he says 
hell do your printouts lor you. 

So you could format your document in a word proces- 
sor, set everything up perfectly in whatever fonts and 
colours you want to use, toad and position any pictures 
you want to include, them before selecting the Print 
option, run CMD. 

By default, the output from whatever program is doing 
the printing will be directed to a file in RAM 5 called 
“CMD Jile\ It will print using the printer driver you have 
selected in Workbench printer presences, so before 


starting you musl have selected the correct driver for the 
printer which will be used. 

After copying Ihe CMD Tile from Ft AM: on lo a floppy 
disk, you trot round your friend's house, slip the disk into 
his dnve, open a Shell window and type: 

COPT ^f0-CBD_F!LE TO PM I: 

Note that the file is sent to PAR:, not PRT:, When you 
originally printed the CMDJile to disk, The output went via 
the PRT: device, and Ihe pnnler driver inserted specific 
printer control codes in the fife tor the pnnter(s) that driver 
was intended to be used with. 

Because all (hose printer-specific codes are in the file 
m cton'l need the printer device to do it again, so we can 
send it slraight to Ihe printer dawn the parallel (PAR:) port, 
completely by passing Ihe PRT: printer device. 

This assumes you are using a punter connected to the 
parallel port. If <F$ connected to the serial port simply 
replace PAR: with SER:, CMD works lor both text and 


graphics. You could print a picture to disk from Delude 1 
Paint, for example, lake the CMD Jlo round your friend's 
house and print it on his printer by Copying it lo the PAR 
device. 

But remember, before printing at your end you must 
unsure you have a printer driver selected that works writ' 
your friend's printer. 

The path and filename for the CMDJile can be 
changed via Tool Types. Click once on the CMD icon and 
select information from the loons menu. You'll see five 
Tool Types in there - DEVICE, FILE, SKIP, MULTIPLE 
and NOTIFY.. 

DEVICE will be parallel or serial, depending on which 
port you have your printer plugged into, FILE i$ the path 
and filename of the Hie that gels created. By default it is 
ram:CMDJile, but you can change il to anything you like - 
DFO’Mypidure, Work:Prifller/cmdtile^report. or whatever. 

SKIP tells CMD to skip any short initial write the soft- 
ware makes to the printer. This is normally a punter reset 
code, and if you don't want the printer to be reset before

LASER PRINTER 
Laser beam traces a pattern 
on a photosensitive drum creating 
a static: charge on the exposed areas 


j Charged wire neutralises any 
remaining charge on the drum 


Any toner stiff stuck to drum is 
removed by a blade 
5 


Drum rotates and 
toner is attracted from 
a cartridge to the 
charged areas 


An electrically charged 
wire pulls toner from the 
drum to the paper 


Heated rollers fuse 
the toner to the paper 

Discharge brush removes the 
electric charge from the toner and paper 


INK JET PRINTER 

Microscopic nozzles on the inkjet cartridge 
sprays fine jets of ink onto the paper. A 
metal plate in the nozzle heats the ink which 
creates bubbles. These bubbles merge together 
to form one large bubble which expands, 
forcing a drop of ink from the nozzle. The 
vacuum formed when the bubble contracts refills 
the nozzle from the reservoir.

nary paper. Banding is almost ron-ex La- 
tent with I a Her printers, but like every- 
thing you buy, the qua Illy of lasers 
varies with price. 

Some of the cheaper models use a 
quite coarse grain uf loner, which means 
the di>ts produced will be that much 
larger, and this can sometimes result in 


something that looks similar to banding. 
But there are no bad laser printers, only 
better ones. It you are thinking about a 
laser printer, keep in mind that many of 
them come with only S 1 2k or 1Mb of 
rrtemoTy. 

Neither of these amounts of memory is 

■ 

enough to produce A 4 -sized graphics at 


3U0 dpi, like pages from desktop publish- 
ing programs for example; you need at 
leant 1.5Mb. If the laser printer has an 
even higher resold t ion - like the 400dpi 
Ricoh LPlZtH), or the new 600dpi LaserJets 
- then you'll need more memory still, at 
least 4Mb for 400 dpi and 
6Mb for 600 dpt. 



set this to TRUE, otherwise leave Ft as FALSE, 

- default CMD works wilh one print job at a lime. After 
printed something, if you want the next prrnt job tg 
reeled I o a file you need to run CMD again. The 
' & LE Tool Type set to TRUE enables CMD to redi-

CMD is also useful for getting programs that are notari- 
^ r slow at printing to print more quickly Because print- 
a lile in RAM': can be done much quicker than

the time. The trie CMD creates is computer independent - 
by that l mean that any computer that is able to send a file 
direct to its parallel or sorial port will be able to print your 
picture, document or whatever, even though it has bean 
created on an Amiga, 

Many people I know who have a PC and a laser printer 
at the office use this technique tn print all their Amiga doc- 


Carice l | 


uments at their employer's expense! 

Of course, if you warn to do this you'll have to copy the 
fite(s) on to a disk that is readable by the computer that 
will be doing the printing. If it's a PC you can 
use Cross DOS or the shareware MultiDQS to create MS- 
DOS format disks which are readable by both PC 
and Amiga.

Dream 

machine 


Reference your regarding wishes tor a favourite Amiga, I confess to 

upgrading to an A5LXI Plus shortly after its. release hut was not caught out again bv the 
A600. 

I am still wilting for a 32-bil machine with a built-in hard drive (preferably SCSI} and 
sufficient memory to run my latest upgraded WP and DTP software which al present l 
cannot use due to wasting for sudi a machine. 

The computHT ^hunld be complete in one casing and not need endless plug-in items 
such as power packs, second floppy drives, hard drives, accelerators, and so on to make It 
a worthwhile combination. 

A composite and complete unit seem?, commonplace in the PC world, yet the 
Amiga continues to rely an additional plug-in units lo achieve its true potential:, even 
though this involves an untidy mess of interconnections which Is unreliable and space- 
consuming. 

How about a 32-bil Amiga A2400 laptop with choice of CPU and memory size to suit 
the individual's taste, requirements, and pocket, complete with built-in PSU, floppy, and 
hard drive to really compete with the PC laptops? 

R C Payntar, Worcester Park 

An? you listening, Cmmadm? The USfts judging frvm the number of letters we'ue had 
truer ike past year from ihose of you unfit? E>wy a partible or laptop Amiga. there's a fai r-sizeA 

mrktf of mobile Amigp users. 

Commodore, of course, have a long an$ proud tradition of listening closely to every suggestion 
and criticism made by the buying public and acting m them, so toe should see some progress on 
this one soon, shouldn 't m? fly the wsy, did I ever tell you ffhotrf my flying pig? 


Good old A2000 

Can you tell me how many times t will 
read about the A 4000/03(1 before socneooe 
points oul that it J s slower than my A200CI 
wttih GVP combo, less expandable, inca- 
pable (due to its crippled &IEC03O chip) of 
some of the tasks my M old -fash ton ed * 
Amiga can carry out, and useless for ray 
tracing in its basic form because there’s no 
maths chip? 

Call me a traditionalist, but I'm 
unlikely to give up the joys of using a. 
SCSI drive controlled direct from my 
40MHz combo card for a cheapo IDE 
dnve, and the advantages of AGA graph- 


ics seem a little less glamorous when I sit 
smugly before my monitor displaying 
a high res 24 -bit Retina display 
with 00 flicker and no faffing 
about with mode promotion and all that 
gubbins. 

Commodore have taken a good chip set 
and hedged it in with garbage Storage, 
terrible CPU Support, a cut down 
system box with fewer expansion 
slots, and a Workbench which 
doesn't know whether it's, coining or 
going. 

t can w r ait just as long as It takes with 
my “outdated ,r machine until the bozos in 



Having read a couple of 
months ago of Infocom's 
adventure game collection 
entitled Lost Treasures of 
infocom, I have contacted 
numerous software distributors 
with the intent of buying this col 
lection for my Amiga, 

Unfortunately, every single com- 
pany told me sillier “it s ncL been 
released yel", ,p we‘ve never heard of 
it"* or “we can't get hold of if, 

l would be very grateful Indeed If 
you could supply a phono number or 
an address of a company who can sell 
me this collection. 

David Young. Oswaldlwistie 

Despair no longer ! Lost Treasures of 
tnfocom, a collection of 20 classic text 
adventure games from the superb and. 
sadly, now defunct Infocom range, is 
available from Eagle Software (03 f -889 
9172) and costs £29.99, 


charge decide to release a decent Amiga 
which offers new technology throughout 
and doesn't compromise on the extra bits. 

Jason McCamgks Aberdeen 

I've rro efoubf there are a lot of A2OQ0 f A 1500, 
jfii A30G0 comers out ihete who Rgr& with 



you on the advantages of the older 
machines if they have already been expanded 
and hfflf fflOflfy spent m accelerating them or 
humping up their graphics. 

However, you can't deny that though 
flawed ui wnic ways, the A4GQGJD30 is a defi- 
nite mpmvmmt over older Amigos as far as 
price to power mhos are concerned. 

True , ii beefed-up A2000 ml! often be far 
too useful d machine to drop m fctvaur of the

Price hike 

I have boon buying Amiga Computing since 
issue 31 which was j round the time I pur- 
chased my A50Q, I think the mag has 
always been good, and the new look it has 
been given recently is even better, espe- 
cially the Gamer Globe part. Please keep 
up the good work. 

Recently I have noticed at the top of 


l\lo more demos, please! 



I am writing in response to G H Jones's letter on page 56 
of your June issue as I have almost a totally opposite 
view to that forward. At tha end ct yogr reply you asked 
for the letters to keep coming in, so here goes. 

One of tha main reasons lor buying your magazine as 
I have been doing every month since May 1991 has 
been your CoverDisks. 

They have, in my opinion, bean vastly superior to 
those of another magazine I buy in that instead of having 
the whale disk full of a demo for a new game which only 
keeps me interested for about live minutes, ifiey have 
been full ol a range of shareware programs from tunes to 
games, Workbench hacks such as Ameko, and serious 
utilities like virus killers. 

I feel that Ibis style of disk should be kept in every 
issue, and any extra full programs you choose to add 
should come cm a second disk, While !„ like G H Jones, 
lind it annoying to pay an extra 96p for a disk containing 


a program \ don’s use, i offset this against an excellent 
program such as Protext which saves me many pounds. 

I use this program all the time and if easily out-ctoes 
Kind words 2 which II was using before, and Scribble 
(given away by your competitor). 

\ do, however, find il very annoying when I’ve paid 
£2.99 for a magazine with a CoverDi$k and tfiere is noth- 
ing on it thal I'll aver took af again. This month’s 
CovarDisk (June) was jusl saved by Virus Checker v6.22. 

The gist ol this letter, I guess is to say please don't fill 
the CoverDisk with demos or lull programs. If you do 
have a full program, Ihen please pul it on another disk 
even if it costs an extra 9Gp. After all, an £00 wordpro- 
cessoF f or 96p can't be bad 

Nick Burton. London 

Your letter reflects a strong current of opinion among 
readers of the magazine who have been with us for a 


couple of years in that you find out old 
style of CoverDisk an attractive buy. 

t¥e appreciate this sentiment shared by 
so many readers, and as a result have resisted the temp* 
tabon to indulge m playable game demos and have , 
where possible, always tried to squeeze shareware pro- 
grams onto the disk beside the commercial software, 

June's disk had very little space left, which is why only 
Vims Checker found its way on, but the July disk. cofr-fain- 
ing the Superb Bars&Pipe s Jr f had three useful extra pro- 
grams carefully selected to appeal :o as broad a base of 
readers as possible . 

We hope that this format for the disk - one commercial 
program accompanied by two or more popular shareware 
titles - will be adjudged a happy medium by old and new 
readers alike, but the possibility of doubling up and going 
for two disks is still there. Again, we would urge any 
reader with strong i/ieivs on tht$ one fo drop us a line.

Elusive old floppy 

Help! IVe been trying to track down a 5 25m disk drive lor the past Ihree weeks without 
success, Thlogic had them, but unfortunately no longer stock them, Do you know of 
anywhere l can lay my hands on one, even second-hand? 

Also, is it sensible to change my A5QQ Plus to an AGQQ or A120D so that I can buy 
one of ihe cheaper IDE hard drives? 

S E Burns, Co Down 

You Should be able la buy a 5.25*n floppy from ZCL (0543 414817) or Silica (081-309 
11 11), as either of these distributors should still be able to supply the Commodore 
5,25m drive. 

As for upgrading, t wouldn't bother with the A600 unless you're only interested In 
games . If you really want to upgrade from your ASiG'u 1 Pius, go for an A 12QQH0. 

You can either purchase cm? with a Wang warranty or opt for one of the third-party 
kits which have less extensive warranties hut are cheaper, Most will he advertised in 
this issue, so sit back and do some armchair shopping.

ER Benton, London 

You don't need to spend any extra 
money on a data disk in order to make 
use of Maxipfan4 - simply format a blank 
floppy and use ft as your data disk onto 
which all new worksheets can be saved. 
Refer to the manual if in doubt as to how 
to do this or what to name the disk.

LETTE RS ■ 


CD tom my rot 

The currant argument for games 
being priced at £25 and in many 
cases well over goes something like 
this: Programmers' wages + musi- 
cians wages + artists' wages + pack- 
aging + marketing + overheads = 
price. 

In addition to this there's the dam- 
age done by the chaps (Mr Booths 
own words were loo picturesque to 
prlnl - Ed) called pirates. I am not 
knocking the current prices, as oven 
all I think it a lair sum in comparison 
to wasting loads of dosh for a film 
you'll only watch a couple of times. 
However, can someone please leli 
me how CD prices are calculated? 

If a CP game uses, say, 6Mb ol CO 
space (ie 6/7 normal disks), and Ihe 
bigger the program the more expen- 
sive ihe costs of programming it, 
then it'll cost more than a floppy- 
based game. How then can compa- 
nies mnke a profit from charging just 
£29 for CDTV games? There are 
three possibilities; 

1. Pirates are blatantly killing their 
own games scene and that ol every- 
one else who can’t afford a CD drive. 

2. CD games will make no profit and 
are really produced by a bunch of 
software houses doing a lot of good 
work for “charriddeee" but they 
don't like to talk about it. 

3. Present disk-based games which 
have 4Mb or less of sound and 
graphics - much lass than many 
cheaper CDTV games - are being 
produced by a bunch of software 
houses who are taking the piss end 
l hey don't like to talk about it, 

I hope l haven! offended anyone 
as I've no Intention of doing so. I Just 
went an answer to this interesting 
question. 

Daryl Booth. Eamsgafe 

ft is an rnt&resting point that, though 
CDTV games are virtually unpirat- 
ahle, they often contain a great dent 
of coding and information over their 
floppy-based rivals while remaining 
in most cases either the same price 
or cheaper. 

No software house which still has 
att its marbles is going to answer a 
question as loaded a s that which you 
posed above, but /f is to be hoped 
that the repeated airing of genuine 
disillusionment such as this will 
prompt the industry to adopt more 
realistic pricing. 

In the opinion of Ibis humble pun- 
dit, the quicker we can alt convert to 
CD the better. CDs don't suffer from 
readfwrite errors, they can t he 
pirated in the usual way, they negate 
the need for disk swaps, and carry 
infinitely more information. 

in short . they make floppies look 
the way floppies made tape storage 
look - sad and out of dale

TUTORIAL* 


I ri the first part of this series you en> 
red a working Amiga DOS disk, 
Mmad how to open the Shell and 
fc . ~. d upon the raw basics of how to 
®*di the Mjmmands. Now let's take a bet- 
tor ek .it the Shell. 

Bwt the machine with your working 
AtegaDOS disk. Locate the Shell icon (if 
y* - M towed last month's instructions, it 
• B be nil the Desktop already) and open 
: - belore, (he Shell window will open 

it L : splay its default prompt - ready for 

i u to enter something. Now enter the 


ten Press the backspace key (marked with 
an arrow, to the right of Del) a few times. 
Letters at the end of the Line, to the left of 
tile cursor, are deleted. 

Now press the Jelt arrow on the cursor 
pad. Notice how this time the cursor 
moves along the line without disturbing 
anything Press the right arrow and the 
cursor moves the other way. 

Keep the right arrow held down and 
the cursor will move to the end of what 
you typed (including any extra spaces! but 
not beyond that point. Mow hold down 


Amiga DOS will dutifully execute the com- 
mand - hopefully correctly this time. 

Now- lets try a couple of different com* 
m ands 1 L doesn't matter at th is stage w ha t 
the commands do, and Shell's output is 
not shown tor clarity - but the**: are delib- 
erately difficult to enter.., 

a 

MHWiEEHSKPRI PECCE5S-E 1>LtST £Tf: 

LF&RPHT^Filf i y, U*s r 

Now lets add an extra argument to the 
last command: 

1 > L 3 S T STS; LFOR^T^FIU is: 2&Ls" 

ILL 

[3 id you remember to press the up 
arrow and just type the rest of the line? If* 
a Eut less typing and much faster thal way’ 
Just suppnse you wanted to Lice that 
ADDEiLTFERS command again. Press the 
up arrow a few time*; you wiJ see each 
command you hive entered appear again 
m reverse order - including any Hoopers. 

I his is fine if you have just typed a few 


entire line - alternatively, you cam use 
Ctrl-U- 

Now type the single letter A r then hcsLiJ 
Shift and press the up arrow. Shell nips 
through its history buffer, locates the first 
Line starting with A and display* it ready 
to be edited. You can also do this using 
Ctrl-R. 

Shell reads the entire string from the 
prompt, ho you can narrow the search by 
L-nteriuga more specific string: say "ADD*' 
in this case. You II learn more of this as 
your experience grows. 

Pres* Skill- Down to clear the line and 
return to the end of the history buffer. 

a’ 

Now locate the command UST, , r ALL you 
entered earlier using the Shift-Up short* 
cut. Now watch what happens when you 
press Ctrl-W. 

Go back through these steps and prac- 
tice them. You'll soon find they come rat- 

JT 

orally - especially if you are a poor typist: 
like most computer programmer* for 
example. 

Now let's shift our attention* to disks 
.ind disk formatting, Disk formatting is 
quite a complex process achieved by some 
clever electronic trickery - a basic ground- 
ing of which is given later in this article. 

Before proceeding any further though, 
make sure the wriEc-protection notch on 
your working Amiga DOS disk - I be one 
you booted from - is open. You wilt also 
need a firesh blank disk - preferably a new

In the second instalment of 
his AmigaDOS series, Mark 
Smiddy looks a little closer 
at the workings of the Shell 


line below. Don’t enter the prompt

*5*d of I tv line- tust try it once

p-t this line right firet time, go straight to

i berate spelling mistake like the one

■in pie 'word pre^'essing 1 '' prop- 
and can remember the 
b*- few commands you

’■*’ * •• Notice how the command you 
Uh reap pea red on the line? You 
M'e the cursor positioned at the 
the line be vend the Last rteirac- 


eilht-r Shift key and press the left arrow. 
Huh time, the cursor moves to the start of 
the line, 

Du the same with the right arrow and 
the cursor moves straight to the end of the 
line (you can get the same effect by using 
Ctrl- A; hold down Ctrl and press A tu get 
tu the start of the line, and Ctri-Z tu get to 
the end). 

Position the cursor at the point where 
you made the mistake and use the 
backspace key to removed the offending 
Setters. Now enter the correct ones, 
and continue this way until the A 


commands, but what if you 
Want fo get to- a specific com- 
mand quickly? Hold either 
Shift key and press the down 
arrow. This will delete the

one- straight out of the bo*, 

From the Amiga DOS prompt, enter the 
M Living command: 

1> FQRHA.T DtlYE HO: mi 'BgrtPisk" 

Insert the disk to be formatted sn drive 
DFO: and pres^ Return. Motive how 
AmigaEHDS loads the format command 
from disk then the message appears. 

If you move the AmigaShell window 
out of the way you will also note how the 
disk's icon has charged to UFOiBuay. If 
you have more than one drive, you can 
replace this command with; 


IHORPAT D LIVE Hi: Ml It "Matt Disk" 


or if you have an A2LXH3: 

l>F&KiIT DRIVE DF2s HUE "SUfllDlik' 


Place the new disk in the internal drive 
(second drive if you have ore) and press 
the Return key (Enter does the same on 
extended keyboards}. 

Amiga DOS will now start the format 
displaying some useful progress- milages 
as it goes. If the formatting process finds a 
dud track the formal will be aborted and 


/ The Shell 

W has some 
simple word 
processing n 
properties > 


you will be prompted for a different disk. 

Thankfully,, this sort of error is quite 
rare - even for unbranded disks - but if 
you get the same error on two or more 
disks then either change brand or get the 
machine tesled, When the format is com- 
pleted the icon changes back to say 
BootDisk, 

Disk formatting is a process whereby 
certain timing information is constructed 
or the disk's magnetic surface. The Amiga 
formats disks with Iftfl tracks (SO each 
side) each containing 1! sectors of 512 



bytes, This gives rise to the- SWOk formatted 
capacity. A couple of things are worth 
mentioning at this stage, although 
they are beyond the scope of what are nor- 
ma Sly considered " beginner's topics '. 
You do not have to understand a lot 
of what follows, but if is useful 


Amiga can only get 8B0k of data on a nor- 
mal disk rather than the full 1Mb unfor- 
matted capacity usually quoted. 

The sectors have to be separated by a 
small gap so the machine can determine 
where one stops and the next one starts. 


The " invisible' data and seel or gap b 
what accounts for the extra 1 2flk of wasted 


storage. 

Now the crunch; You cannot store 880k 
of user data (your stuff) on a disk 
With the traditional Amiga filing 
system - one of those well use - it is enh 
possible to get 837k; and even then, onh 
at a pinch. 

A tiling system (often abbreviated h 
FS) is the Software which determines tbin 
wav information is laid down on a format- 

J 

led disk. As far as a Workbench user L 


concerned, a disk could use any one oi 
four filing systems and they wouidnT 
know the di ffonmee. 

A I though the filing system has little to 
do with the way disks are actually format- 
ted (apart from a single ED byte) it is 
worth knowing the difference. 

Amiga DUS will always choose thi. 
most appropriate format (or any particu- 
lar device - other options such as FFS, IP's 
and DCFS must be switched on when the 


format takt>s place. You can change a disk 
from one F5 method to another by simpl 1 , 
"quick" 1 formatting il: but this will irrevo- 


cably destroy all the information it held.

groundwork. 

In days gone by r disks had a senes oi 
sector holes arranged around she hub ring. 
As the disk spun, the holes passed over a 
light sensor - rather like a burglar alarm - 
and triggered $. sector pulse for each of the 
seven or eight sectors. Later systems 
(5.23in) used a method of soft-sectoring 
where a single hole was used to trigger 
the start of a track. 

The 3 Jin disks usod in ihc machine use 
an MFM or Modi fied Frequency 
Modulation format. Using ibis system, the 
stari of each track is determined entirely 
in the format itself. The start of each track 
is dynamically encoded in the format 
using a "magic number" that could not 
normally appear under the MFM coding 
system.. 

r 

This makes the disks much faster 
because an entire cylinder (pair of trades) 
can be read or written in one go Without 
having to hang around for the sector 
marker. This also helps explain why the

HiSoft BASIC 



PART 6 




Basic learning curve hurdles. 

One ol the good things about HiSoft 
Basic is that its syntax is closely related to 
the original Amiga Basic and other 
Miaoeoft-styie Basics This means that con- 
verting programs to and from these various 
farms is usually straightforward. 

HiSoft Bask dov£, however, have its 
share of enhancements and, as with most 
Basics, these include a number of less 
important language extensions. 

For example there are 3ncr and Deer 
instructions that provide an alternative way 
of expressing increment and decrement 
operations, bu, instead of writing x=x+1, 
HiSoft Basic allows you to write incr x. 

While this latter shorthand form might 
sometimes be useful when dealing with 
long variable names or expressions it dues 
rend to make code less portable and so Is 
usuci ity best avoided . 

One of the things however which makes 
HiSoft Basic ^tand out from the competition 
is that most of its enhancements, rather than 
being of tiie trivial "bells and whistles'' vari- 
ety, have centred an the needs of tlie serious 
programmer. 

For example the language supports 
recursion (allowing sob-programs to call 
themselves) and it provides good error trap- 
ping and break handling instructions which 
enable your program to branch to special 
routines when error/ break conditions are 
encountered. 

The usual type of machine code calling 


Paul Overaa finds no 
boundaries to this 
powerful language 
as he winds up his 
programming series 

facilities are available but as well as this a 
powerful Calls statement exists which 
allows sub-programs to be called md erectly 
fusing an address held in a variable). 

HiSoft Basic also provides specialised 
Amiga goodies including links to the 
Amiga system libraries and a Systab func- 
tion which allows access to a range of sys- 
tem variables (Intuition's message port the 
Workbench startup message screen bit- 
plane date). 

The end result is that although the core 
facilities of HiSoft Basic make it an ideal 
language for the beginner, advanced Amiga 
programmers will find that there is little 
they cannot do with the W" r J 
languor * * -

Icky disks are a problem that 
affect even the most careful 
computer user air one time or 
another. As a result, software safety - 
fc nether it he on ii hard disk, or floppy - is 
^ essential part of any system,

ems like Fixdisk leading the field when

- ■re such as Chopper provides a means

■ -:-up, hard di*k partitions. 

Although still excellent, many of the

M >rizons with their Quarterback and 
Quarterback Tools duet offering similar 
features to the new Ami- Back range with

pries and hard disk partitions 
respectively. 


Ami-Back 

Tools 


Although A mi- Back comes in two forms 
* ' probably the Tools - or maintenance

* Could you fall in Jove 
with this twin collection 
of hard drive tools and 
back-up utilities? You 
might do when your 
drive next crashes, as 
Paul Austin discovers..* 


modem hard di*k controllers do a very 
good job at optimising performance and 
as a result only when the disk is full will 
optimising have any major benefits. 

Disk Analyst comes next providing a 
find-and-fix procedure for problems 
within the disk structure itself Common 
i a ults such as validation or checksum 
errors will he found and fixed - although 
ifs possible to vary the programs opera- 
tion so that faults will be simply located 
and added lo an error list, repaired im me- 
diately or reported prior to repair. 

RESURRECTION 

After analysis comes the software's 
very own resurrection program in the 
form of Reviver. As the name suggests. 
Reviver is designed to restore deleted 
files. 

However like all such software the pro- 
cess will only work effectively if the vol- 
ume in Question hasn't been rewritten to 
since the files where deleted. An added 
bonus is that e^en a Quick Format can be 
reversed breathing life back to even the 
most sickly software, Continuing the

theme of reincarnation w=e have the next 
utility, namely 91 h Recovery which as the 
dramatic title implies can be the last hope 
for an ailing hard disk. 

if the unthinkable happens and your 
hard disk disappear* without a trace, no 
longer appearing as a valid AmigaDOS 
volume, 91 1 -Recovery can be used to sav- 
age lost data by backing-up the contents of 
the ailing volume to another, or alterna- 
tively on to floppies-. 

Next comes the curiously- titled 

a 1 

Antiseptic which unlike the re*t of the col- 


lection has been designed to destroy data 
rather than recover it. 

In certain circumstances deletion of 
data can be just as important as recovery - 
prime examples being sensitive informa- 
tion you don't ivant to fall into flic wrong 
hands or perhaps prior to resale of exist- 
ing hardware. 

As experienced users will be aware, 
simply formatting a volume doesn't 
destroy the data and in fact it's this very 
principle that allows the vast majority of

recovery software to operate. 

As a result, Antiseptic has been 
designed to totally eradicate any trace of 
existing data whether it be hidden in the 
free space of visible. 

Once selected the space selected will be 
complete Ly over- written and to be really 
sure up to five passes can be made over the 
volume which means only very advanced 
technology would be able to recover the 
information - and there's certainly nothing 
commercially available that in that league 

To dost* the collection. Lab Test offers 
the chance to generate a CRC database, or 
Cyclic Redundancy Check Code which 
simply snapshots alt the in formation per- 
taining to live volume in question. 

Once stored the file can he used to com- 
pare the database with what is actually 
contained on the volume with primary 
purpose being the defection of viral 
activity, 


Ami- Back 


Although fust as feature-packed as its coun- 
terpart, Ami- Back is a much more dedicated 
package restricting its field of interest to 
bard drive back-up as opposed to salvage,, 
optimisation or whatever else, 

Above all, the program's primary claim 
to fame is speed and after testing against 
Quarterback - its main commercial opposi- 
tion - the seemingly inflated claims of the 
Ami-Back marketing department seem to 
bold true, It took just 47 seconds to hack up 
a 930k directory, while Quarterback dod- 
dered along at a rather embarrassing 77 sec- 
onds for the same operation. 

In addition to speed, Ams-Back also offers 
Jlexibilitv in the form of support for not only 
floppies but HD floppier hard drives, SCSI 
tape devices and even DAT - not that you'll 
come across many of those in the average 




Amiga .setup. 

Better still, the aforementioned SCSI 
tapes - or tape streamers as they're more 
often called - don’t require any special soft- 
ware in order to be driven. And, tape back- 
ups themselves can he stored not only cm 
single tapes but also multiples when neces- 
sary. On lop of that, multiple fixed and vari- 
able block mode adds the finishing touch to 
tape streamer flexibility. 

On a more traditional note, the program's 
back-up options also allow storage direct to 
a single Amiga DOS file or partition along 
with a spec La S image back-up unique to 
Ami-Back. Thanks to the a foremen toned 
image feature even MS DCS, Arnax or L'nix 
partitions can be saved any restored. 

However, such back-ups ate restricted to 
the entire device and as a result it's impossi- 
ble to selectively restore files as is the case 
with a standard Amiga DOS fife system. 

However even with the "all or nothing" 
approach A ms- Rack still remains unique 
and very attractive to users playing host to 
alien emulators or DOS system s. 

Regardless of what or w here you choose 
lo store you daia r Ami-Back also allow!; 
password protection for those sensitive files 
you don' | won't anyone else to get their 
mucky mitts on, 

In addition to the back-up -specific 
options, the program also shares some simi- 
lar features to its tool-laden namesake. First 
up is a version of the 911 -Recovery software 
mentioned above. Although not identical it 
works in a similar manner by salvaging 
essential files from the wreckage of even the 
most terrifying hard drive disaster. 

The next option is fairly reminiscent of 
CRC offered bv AB-Toob. However in thia- 
case of Arm- back the option is entitled 
Compare Mode, This simply checks backed- 
up data with the present system information 
in order to spot any potential loss or senility 
on the part of your archive. Aside from j 
selection of storage options, hand ting

Asset sharing 

Both package share an extra scheduler program allowing them to became totally auto- 
mated, and as a result when active the program will Fire up and apply the desired proce- 
dure at the month, day and hour you chose with accuracy down to five-mlnule 
increments. 

Obviously For toppy based back-ups this isn’t particularly useful as someone still has 
lo he on hand to swap the disk. “ ^ 

However lor the pro user with perhaps a tape streamer or back-up partition Itte- option 
is invaluable and vividly illustrates the markel thal the Ami-Back range has been tar- 
geted towards. 

Alongside the scheduler both packages also share a common affinity with ARexx 
plus all versions of AmigaDQS.

Arguably the 
most flexible 
backup program 
on the market ... 


* 


and archive management can often he jusl 
as important and here again Ami-Back 
scores well with an impressive and often 
unique range of filters and intelligent file 
haiKlling options. 

At the forefront of lls intellectual options 
come die program's exclusion and inclusion 
filters which can be applied during both 
back-up ami restoration allowing the tiller- 
ing of file names, directory names, com- 
ments, protection bite and date stamps. 

FILTERING 

It s even possible to apply a touch of 
Boolean logic with AND/OR combinations 
allowing even more subtle filtering of the 
files heading either to or from the chosen 
device or fife. 

Continuing in an intellectual vein, the 
program thankfully provides the ability to 
skip mining disks during restoration as 
well as advanced individual file handling 
options which allow existing data to he 
either skipped, overwritten or renamed 
when necessary. 

As ever we’ve arrived at the inevitable 
potted opinion, for not one but both Ami- 
Back and Ami-Back Tools- A* For overall 
appear I think tine features speak for them- 
selves bill as is the case with most power 
software, there's a price lobe paid. 

tn the ease of kith packages the price in 
question is a rather krfty £69.94 which lo be 
frank Ls quite a bit more than the average 


user would k 3 willing Eo part with consider- 
ing the proliferation of acceptable if not 
spectacular products in the PD or as 
shareware. 

1 laving said that it must be stressed that 
nothing in the PD comes even remote!;, 
close to the power offered by the Ami-Back 
duel- As a result 3 can still envisage 
respectable safes lo the pro and semi-pro 
market. 

The aforementioned sates will probably 
he besl reflected in the turnover of Ami- 
Back Tools which easily out-guns the exist 
ing version of Quarterback Tools (although 
the imminent release of QB Deluxe could 
alter the situation) bet it would have lo be a 
very dramatic upgrade to better AB-TV 
excellent collection of utilities. 

As for Ami-Ekufk. - the situation is preth 
much the same with an array of feature 1 - 
thrit make it arguably the most flexible and 
certain !y the fastest hard drive back-up pro- 
gram on the market 

However it must be said it 's not all gotxf 
news for Ami-Back as it will have a very 
hard fight against the massively popular 
Quarterback HD back-up system which - 
although slower - has a strong position as 
the industry standard when it comes lo 

J, 

large scale file transfer.

■ TUTORIAL 


Striated ikies and choppy iem 


that an install script has been provided. 
Because the third disk contains Lhe French, 
German and Italian sound samples, less 
fortunate users do nnl need to access all 
three unless they are language gurus, 

All the usual routines for drawing tines, 
boxes, circles and filled areas are present 
but these have been extended to produce 
some zany effects Each toot has an array 
of attention grabbing styles and options 
plus an associated sound sample that is 
played to further retain a child's interest, 
There is a rubber stamp tool that has a 


Amiga left wanting 

Sadly, the Amiga version lacks the full complement of routines found on personal com- 
outers. With the IBM version it is possible to triple a stomp size as it es pasted There are 
also facilities wiihin the editor to rotate and Hip pictures. The inability to do lhe later on 
lhe Amiga reduces the number of available stamps ijy a factor of eight, 

Strangely, an addendum la the manual puls shortcomings down to technical differ- 
ences between the Amiga and PC. 

A really glaring omission is the inability to load any hies other Ilian those originally 
created using KidPix. 

Hie special file format used can be read by Deluxe Paint but any permanent changes 
to the file will render it unreadable by KidPix. The PC version uses PCX files, which are 
the standard format on lhal platform, Thereby permitlmg pictures lo be exchanged 
between packages. 

These are not lhe only features to be omitted. The IBM version has lealures such as 
keyboard short-cuts, a toggle between sound effects gnd playing a song; plus the ability 
to stop drawing geometric shapes before they are completed 5 . 

There are no obvious technical reasons for These differences and they could well 
appear as the product is developed. 


Amiga Computing August 1393 


Electronic Arts set the standard in the nursery with 
a paint package designed specifically for children, 
Colin Yarnall turns back the years... 


total of 132 brush pictures 
thiil; can be doubled in size. 

Although they follow 
themes including people, 
animals, transport and 
food, it is possible to 
design your own from 
scratch or customise the 
existing one*. 

User-generated stamps 
are saved to disk for use in 
the next session and can be 
restored, at any time, to the 
ores originally supplied. 

The great thing about 
the default stamps is that 
they have been designed to 
be used together, to create complete 
scenes, without the need for any compli- 
cated drawing. 

For example, it would be a simple task 
to create a complete train carrying zoo ani- 
mals on their way to a teddy bears' picnic 
Hats and glasses cjti be combined with 
faces, 70s smilies, snowmen, cats, dogs and 
even a wide-eyed frog! 

Sections of a picture can be captured, 
using the moving van tool, then moved to 
another position. A variety of rectangles 
may be used to define the shape of the cut. 

Alternatively, the user can deer to use 
the magnet in order to grab an area of any 
size thev choose, Rather than remove a 

a 

large chunk, leaving a conspicuous white 
oblong, screen sections can be copied 


A s everyone knows, children love 
p E untmg and now they can do it 
on the Amiga without having to 
negotiate a package designed for grown- 
ups. The likes of Del uxe Paint are just a bit 
too youngster unfriendly for the average 
child, which is precisely why Kid Pix 
came into being. 

The package was originally designed 
by the father of a three-year-old as a sim- 
ple, fun to use, computer paint pad. It was 
further developed, on the PQ, to become a 
commercial product suitable for children 
of all ages. Mow it has- been transported to 
the Amiga to fill the gap in the market left 
by the more traditional art programs, 
Apart from the disks and user guide, 
the box contains a sheet of six colourful 
sticky badges. Rather than being aimed at 
children, the- manna I is written tor par- 
ents. Let's face it, kids will want to get 
straight into the program and younger 
ones won't be able to read anyway* 

H a 

It isn’t necessary to look through the 
user's guide before launching into Kid Plx 
as discovering how to use lhe package is 
an extremely enjoyable experience. 

The package comes on three disks and 
hard drive owners will be pleased to hear 


A teteetton of wacky Aruih effects 

using either the edit option of the 
menu bar nr the mouse /control key 
combination. 

Fantastic effects can be produced with 
the wacky brush tool which has no less 

Jr 

than 28 styles. One of these can be used to 
produce bare trees that w'Ould odterwise 
be beyond the abilities of a child. These 
aro no ordinary trees mind you, they’re 
fractal, which makes them more varied 
and realistic than pre-drawn outs could 
possibly be. 

Forget complex equations, and 
overnight rendering times, because these 
fractals literally take no more than t\ ooto 




TUTORIAL* 



!r<T!ttpi altatv ramplfj picture* fp 5r created quicbtf 


pie ot' seconds to produce! They are ran- 
' 1 n 1 |y generated at the click of a mouse 
button. The only brain work required is 
Jedding whether to make large or small 
ones. 

By default they are little, hut, by press- 
ing the Ctrl key at I he same lime as the 
mouse button, larger triers can be gener- 
ated. Adding the finishing touches, an the 
Mrm of leaves, is a simple matter of select- 
ing a colour and using the spray paint 
nrush. 

I hick ID Lines may be used as just that, 
■r to create backgrounds. For example, 
■mbming blue paint with the 3D brush 
an result tn striated skies and choppy 
-eas. Pressing the Ctrl key at the same 
time changes the white 3D highlight to a 
selection of randomly-picked colours 
maiti from a pastel palette. 

In fact, pressing lire <_!trl key with most 
wacky brushes reveals, a hidden aspect. 
The additional paint effects vary from 
brush to brush but generally involves 
hanging the colour,, toggling fill, enlarg- 
-g die brush or altering the shape of the 
affected area, 

For younger children, who are more 
.' V'ricernedi with the process of painting 
rather than *he end product there is a 


/ A variety of 
snowflakes are 
created at a flick 
of a button ^ 

drippy brush that si mu lutes excessive 
amounts of paint. 

As a line is drawn, blobs of paint drip 
down the screen, Similarly, a leaky foun- 
tain pen is available which continually 
allows ink to flow even when ihe pen has 
stopped moving. This remits in drip trails 
as lines are drawn, and pools where the 
pen pauses. 

Problems could be en countered by 
young children if they discover she menu 
bar and begirt to experiment. This is where 
the file options are located, together with 
facilities to change the native language 
and silence the sound feature. 

Making the program kid-proof is 
achieved by entering a special mode 
which removes these routines, leaving ail 
of the remaining tod options available.

The package doesn't stop at emulating 
real paint but provides effects that could

example, there is a caterpillar pen which 
creates a paint trail that follows the mouse 
pointer around the screen. It is a cross

be drawn separately with the number

The completed series of dots can then be 
printed out as a DlY do No-dot 

Oval 


An amusing tool that goes by the name 
of Electric Mixer manipulates drawings to 
create instant patterns and effects., The 
night and day option inverts the palette; 
wallpaper extracts a rectangle from the 
picture and pastes it to create a tiled effect: 
broken glass fragments the drawing into 
large triangles,, while the nutliner draws 
around all of the lines in a picture, 

The weather is almost always a feature 
of children's pictures and has been welt 
catered for. A variety of snow flakes are 
created at the click of a button and, by 
holding down the Ctrl key at the same 
time, they can be melted to form rain 
drops ! 

A snowman, streaked lightning and the 
sun am all included in the set of stamps 
for added effect,

EDUCATION 

Although the package was intended 
so tel V tor playful drawing, it contains an 
element of education in the form of the 
text tool. When a letter or number is 
stamped onto live screen, a sample spying 
that character is heard. The voices are var- 
ied and provide a painless introduction ro 
learning the association between these 
fundamental sounds and symbols. 

There is also a wacky brush that paints 
consecutive letters of the alphabet or a 
oyer-defined text string, 

Experimenting with lots of options can 
result in a complete mess. Simple mistakes 
can be corrected with the L'ndo function 
but more complex ones usually mean that 
it is time to start again. 

The task of clearing the screen has been 
animated in a variety of imaginative ways, 
from a simple fade to an engulfing black 
hole. One of Ehese exciting methods is 
called firecracker which explodes a bomb 
and sends shock waves irrosh the screen 

Hidden pictures can be revealed using 
the special mystery eraser. As the rubber 
is moved across the picture, it slowly dis- 
appears to be replaced with a black and 
wh itc d ra w mg. There a re arou nd 15m y ar- 
tery pictures including a lion, hori^, lady- 
bird, shell, eye and an elephant. 

They are mainly composed of dots, 
giving them a grainy appearance, so a 
couple of pictures lack clarity, The deci- 
sion to use this stele of clip art was proba- 
bly due to the fact that the paletre is 
limited to lb colours and cannot be 
altered. 

Unfortunately, there is no facility to 
import your own dip art so this feature is 


The Onda Cuy 



likely to lose its appeal quite quickly. 

Despite the shortcomings, KidPLx is an 
exceedingly enjoyable and well designed 
paint package that will am use children of 
all ages for hours at a lime. 


At the moment it is the only commer- 
cial art program we know of that is aimed 
specifically at a youngsters. It will there- 
fore set the standard for its genre and, 
judging by its inventiveness, will con- 
tinue to do so for some while 
to come.

TUTORIAL! 


A fter a month of solid tinkering 
there's a good chant*? that Eh? 
hard core have already spotted 
iE legist some of tlio amazing power features 
within R&F Jr. 

However, with the program's plethora 
of sliders, buttons and assorted gadgets, I 
.in guarantee even the most enthusiastic 
"luso will have ovedwWd at lot of what's 
m offer. 

If you can cast you mind back to the last 
—Lie you'll recall the mandatory whistle 

j j 

vtLjp tour of the software, highlighting the 
--^-'ntial set-up and basic editing optkTO- 
This month we'll be going quite a bit 
ieeper with a detailed look at the prt> 
gram’s multi track editing, flags, and group- 
ing options. 

Before we stiil, please ensure you make 
i copy of the demo wng on die GwcrDisk. 
T he reason for this is that we'll he using it to 
provide a common point of reference dur- 
ng the tutorial which you may wish to save 
m its edited form later on - under no cir- 
imstances save over the original! 
Obviously tor Midi users the internal 
sounds offered by the demo aren't exactly 
ideal. As a result, let: I free to replace the 
*pare key 5 and Amigcphone tools with 
Midi-tn and Midi-Out respectively. 



Tools can be removed by simple mouse 
-■kct ion followed by hitting the Delete key. 
Tiv i>dd a neiv tool simply drag a copy from 
mother track or the tool box.. When in posi- 
tion, double-click to open the tools 
nxpeSter - if available - and then adjust 
the various parameters where necessary'. 

i ou may remember from the last issue 
Ehat the editing of individual tracks was 
covered - at least in brief. This month it's 
- lilt Lira ck editing that comes under the 


spotlight giving you the power to editing 
across the entire composition. 

Thanks to the proliferation of flags scat- 
tered across the top of the track window, 
actually spotting tfie multi-rack edit mark- 
ers can be a tricky business. If you lake a 
dose look you should be able lo spot a pur- 
ple triangle which can be split into two 
halves between which becomes the edil 
area 

If you click on either half you should be 
able to drag it across the top of the track 
window. Obviously because the two mark- 


mnvt' die right-hand marker to the left of its 
counterpart, and as a result attempting this 
wilt rejoin the two halves of lb? edit sand- 
wtdr. 

Before we go any further it would be 
wise to take a quick trip to die preferences 
window highlighting the Align With option 
which should reveal the flag alignment 
default iietting^. - ^ 

If you've already experimented with the 
various flags you may have noticed that 
they tend to snap to a bar or measure aufo*- 
mdticaQy. Although confusing at first this 


for cut and paste operations. 

For our purposes select the measure 
option - a check mark should appear 
alongside. \'ow return to the track window 
and try dogging Ehe edit markers and you 
should see the flags snap into position as 
defined. 

Before we perform the first edit, open the 
flag window and position it as shown in the 
screenshot You can now either drag the 
edit markers as described above or alterna- 
tively type the figures directly mto the flag 
requester. 

For (mr example, set the markers so that 
lire flag window reads 0001 .til .00 for the 
input and Otitifl.Ol.OO In the output - 
thereby selecting the firet eight bare of the 
piece. 

Due to tiw size of the sequence area you 
can only see a three-bar section at any one 

r tr 

time — 3s & result you'll need (he assistance 
of the sequence drag bar at the bottom of 
the track window in order to set the appro- 
priate edit points using the mouse, Finally 
move to the edit pull-down menu and 
select the cut option, blow rewind the 
sequencer, hit the play button and - sur- 
prise, surprise - the first eight bars are miss- 
ing. Feel free to experiment with the 
various generic edit options available in the 
pull down* - but remember the flags stay 
active and will automatically move to the 
next ?ight bare ready for additional editing, 

Tn addition to the ixiit flags, another ten 
icons lurk alongside. Assuming the flag 
window is still open we'll work from top 
Opening with the punch-in and punch-out 
flags. 

As the name suggests these flags are 
used to temporarily drop the sequencer into 
record mode and then back out at a pie - 
defined point. Punch recording is a popular

Now move back to the track window

that the ^appropriate input and output tools

the metronome.

Although not as dynamic as the punch-

each flag at the appropriate position for 
the section ensure the track is set up to 
record and move to the transport window. 

If you now click on the Loop button 
alongside tbe record! burton the sequencer 
will pause momentarily while setting up 
the loop and then return with a small 
requester. To continue simply dick on the 
Flay button and the sequencer will begin 
the first of eight passes over ttre looped 
section. 

You now have eight opportunities to 
either try variations on a theme or perhvt a 
solo. When the final pass is complete the 
requester will he replaced by another 
showing each attempt as a number which 
can be selected and thereby auditioned 


Become a groupie! 


Just above the flags you'll notice a bar lull ol assorted icons and but- 
tons, the first of which is the sokVmula button which toggles the 
selected track or group ol tracks between solo performance, a 
muted state or back to Ihe ctoiault with all tracks playing in 
concert. 

The following eight numbered buttons all belong to the group 
oplion. Tp create a group dick on any of Ihe number buttons fol- 
lowed by the group button rtseff, Now dick on two off three tracks - 
each should light up in turn. 

Click on the group button to de-select and then dick on a effer- 
ent number. Ycui previous selection will now disappear - however if 
you new ng-selecl Ihe new group by clicking on its number, it should 
reappear. 


Try clicking on the solo/muie button and you'll see the power of 
the grouping options in action, in order to assist grouping and tool 
connection the two jp/down arrows alongside the group button can 
be used to move a selected track up or down the fel. To tty the 
function de-select the group, pick a track at Ihe bottom of tfie win- 
dow and hit the up arrow. Simple but etfedive... 

Finally we've arrive at the loolize option - which you'll find sand- 
wiched between Ihe sola button and group numbers. To use the tea- 
lure, drag $n appropriate loo! into the window, select ihe track or 
Iracks to be processed and execute the toolize option from the edit 
pull-down menu. Although generally used far quantising, applying 
more exotic effects such as echo can produce some unusual and 
pleasant results. 


with. ihe real of lire song. 

When you've picked your favourite, dim- 
ply dick OK and that version will be written 
to the track while the rest arediscarded- 

Betrer still, merge can also be used in 
addition to basic record, so if you onEy want 
to add a few embellishments to an existing 
section, replacing the R with an N in the 
track's input will give you the same etghi 
attempts at perfection without destroying 
tbe original notes. 

Bringing the flag coBectwrn to a dose are 
arguably ihe least dynamic of the dozen 
namely the song position and stop flags 
Although both can be dragged just like all 
the others, it's likely you'll use them more 
often via the flag window. 

In the case of the position marker, typing 
or dragging simply chances the current song 
positism and as a result it's from this new 
point where Ihe sequencer will kick in wlton 
the play button is hiL 

As for the stop flag things are even sim- 
pler. To use it simply drag it to or type the 
position where you want to stop the 
sequencer, whether it be in play or record 
mode- 

Alas thal's all that space will allow for 
this month, however next time we'll take a 
d<*se look at the various tools and how to 
Use them, the mysteries of the pull-down 
menus phis a guide to the liner points ol 
individual track editing.

■ SOFTWARE 



Phil Morse looks at a whole 
host of shareware programs that 
won’t cripple the family budget 








11 Bit, CLE12 


Using the infant-friendly mouse as a control m el hod. Ihis program 
teaches go-ordinai ion, vocabulary and (tie letters of the alphabet to 
younger children, 

There' 9 a useful parent-'teadier preferences screen, winch allows the 
setting of Ihe number of spellings per session as wet! as The ability to 
toggle the colourful backdrop - great lor those with fuzzy TV sets 



instead of monilors , ■■ 

The preferences screen can be disabled with a password should this be 
required after which il will cease to appear cn the menu accessible to the child 
- a mce louch. Preferences can also be s^ved. 

Selecting leach me" from the dunky. easy-to-use menu displays a crude but 
recognisable picture of an object, together with its name {van, for instance) and 
Amiga speech spelling the word out (V... A... N... ), 

Sampled speech would have been better - the Amiga's dulcil tones have 
always reminded me of the old Texas Instruments' Speak and Spell games - 
but it's recognisable enough, 

I found it hard to escape once I'd entered an exercise; although I spacilred 
five questions, they seemed la ga on loravor. Maybe ! did something wrong, 
but il points to a bit of tuning in the user-friendliness department, or alterna- 
tively, a bit of debugging! 

The game involves the same pictures yau see In the Teach me" practice 
mode, but wish the fust letter of each word missing. The child has lo enter this 



letter to move on, or face 
the wrath of the on-screen 
down who fooks decidedly 
miserable when an answer 
is found 1o be incorrect 
It's a nice lithe pro- 
gram, marred a little by ils 
simplicity and the apparent 
bug. Wonh a look.

for your rMd to 
/turn hi Alphabet Tenth 




17 Bit, 2204 


A value- tor- money double pack 
here, containing two programs 
on the one disk, the olher 
being fractions (see Junior 
section). 

Silhouette tests shape recogni- 
tion abilities, and its six levels are 
both colourful and intricate - a marked 
conlrast from the simplistic, clunky feel of 
a Iqi of such software. 

A number of silhouettes of 
shapes appear around the edge of the 
screen, with shapes appearing one 
by one in the middle, which you 
"grab” with a realistic -loo king, 
mouse-controlled hand and pul Into the 
correct holes. 

It's rather like shape puzzles for 
infants, but this version is timed, 
with 60 seconds being allowed on each 
level (the levels get progressively more 
difficult). It's simple bul well wntlen and 
attractive. 



E ducation is a broad concept 
Limiting a feature such as this 
to lacking at programs 
designed to teach younger children 
only - the kind most people think of 
when education is mentioned - would! 
be to rob the concept of its true mean- 
ing, for education is not ageist. 

So in this feature. I've looked at 
some of the better programs on the 
market for all ages, and divided them 
into three groups: tnfanl, for pre-sec- 
ondary school children; Junior, for 
those up lo and Including GCSE can- 
didates, and Adult - training and 
tutorial programs far hobbies and 
skills. 

All the disks featured here share 
one thing In common; they are not 
commercial. They have been written 
by and large by enthusiasts - parents 
with children of their own or 
schoolteachers with first-hand expe 
rience of those at wham they are 
aiming the programs. 

Often the children themselves are 
responsible tor some excellent stuff; 
computer literacy is being learned 
earlier and earlier by the youngsters 
ol today, to the ooint where many are 
writing their own programs to teach 
themselves. 

The programs reviewed are either 
free or "shareware which means 
you pay the author a nominal fee - 
stated in the on-disk documentation, 
normally - should you find his or her 
work useful. At a time when many 
arc complaining that free education 
is becoming paid-tor training, here 
are a group of programmers who are 
involved in the pursuit of knowledge 
for its Own sake. They deserve our 
support...

Fractions 

17 eft, 2204 

Fractions is an involved but clear and well written program aimed 
presumably, at GCSE students. Hie Help option details dearly and dragra- 
maticslly what fractions are. explaining such mathematic obscurities as divi- 
dends and divisors, and me program itself allows exercises on addition, 
multiplication and division, as well as fraction simplification and a full 
score chart 

It uses the annoying Amiga voice synthesiser again, but you can turn Hoff 
(or turn the volume down) and you're fell with a wo If- written, clear, involved and 
use! til program that teaches one oi the stickier sides of maths with style and 
confidence. 




Monarchs 

17 Bit, CLE 16 A /8 

One of a senes documenting the history of England, these two disks actually 
run independently - the first contains royalty informal ion covering the 
Saxons, Normans, Plantagenets, Stuarts and Tudors, while the second con- 
cerns itself with the House of Windsor and the complete line of accession. 

Selecting a period produces a pageful of text with a scroll bar; daunting for 
some, maybe, but the medicine is sweetened by a number of additional 
screens, containing coats of arms, pictures of the kings and queens in ques- 
tion, and the judicious use ol well-chosen sound effecis. The text is very well written 
and interesting. 

The problem with trying to bring history alive is that it feels very lar away to the 
virgin student - teachers and leaching aids need to make it "come alive'’, 1o empha- 
sise the human angle and Ip instil the ccuntin- 
nous timeline into the student’s mind. 

While basically digitising a book doesn't 
do this, it does allow a greater degree of eon- 
trot over what is read-looked at and in what 
order, meaning that the child can follow a line 
of interest much more easily than grappling 
with a conventional index. 

I used to have a kings end queens 
wa Icharl on the back of my wardrobe door; 
this is, I! suppose, the wallchart for the older 
chihj of the 1990s, A useful little mullimedia 
package.

Let’s Learn v IJ 

17 Bit, CL Ell 

Aimed at five to seven-year-olds, this program is gloriously simple to use. thanks to m 
its reliance for all input on the toft-hand mouse button; no keyboard, no remember- mm 
ing to hit Return, no complex interlacing. 

It's a large and comprehensive package. Modules include Maths, which covers 
simple sums, and Tunes, which presents a keyboard that lights up as the computer P 
plays a tune., encouraging the child to learn how to play il by clicking an the keys. 

There are 17 pieces of music on the disk, so it would take a new Mozart to speed 
quickly through ihis tot. 

Moving on. Codes involves the child "decoding” a series oF words, based upon ihe age- 
old code □! A-1 , E^2 and so on up to Z-26 B while Opposites Invites the child Id enter the 
opposite of a word displayed on-screen, an example being '■Good" where She child has to 
enter "Bad-' 

The most interesting part ol this program for me was Squares, which presents two grids 
on the screen. One contains an assortment of coloured squares, the other is blank for the 
child to till in a copy of the first gnd, using an easy to use, point-and-click QFarnt-$tyle 
interface, It Teaches spatial relationship, apparently - shapes ig you and me. 

AH bul one of the subjects have live levels. If the child does well enough (three oul ol 
live) a simple animated farmyard scene, wilh an animal added each time, is displayed, 
and ihe program moves to ihe next level, Finish all live and you gel a “grand finale" - 
exciting stuff. 

The package is clear and simple, contains same nme pieces a! music, effects and ani- 
melton, but shines for Ihe reason mentioned at the beginning of this review - easy mouse 
enlry which won't cause confusion like the keyboard frequently can You can even enter 
text, via an on-screen alphabet. 


Pictures and Letters 

17 Bit, 2226 

Aher entering your name (the computer speaks to you - unfortunately - 
in The ever-popuiar Amiga synthesis speech) and setoclmg keyboard or 
mouse control you re presented with a representation ot a simplified 
qwerty keyboard. 

Selecting any letter brings up a piclure ot an object which slarts with 
that letter - U lor umbrella, for instance - bul Ihe actual word is not dis- 
played. so the child must know what an umbrella is already. 

It gels cuhouser and curtouser; the next section shows you the same key- 
board - although For some inexplicable reason, ihe mouse cannot be used to 
selecl letters in this part - which plays a sample when you click on a fetter. 

The samples and letters are in no way connected - they’re things like a stab 
of eleclric guilar, a water drop and so on - and the program invites you to 
Remember where your favourite sounds ane H . 

What's strange about it is teal, apart from some bask: computer-literacy, the 
program doesn't actually teach the child anything. There are no exercises, no 
testing, no progress reports: jusi clicking, watching and lisle ning 1o digitised 
Amiga speech. 

Halt-baked and clumsily programmed, this would nevertheless keep a young- 
ster occupied tor a while, but it : s hard to see much value in it beyond that.

The Little Traveller 

17 Bit, 24S1 

After a rather convoluted loading period,, fh&s program presents a map of the 
world, with continents ghosted into boxes for selection. 

Not surprisingly, clicking on a corrtinenl gives a sub-section - for instance, 
clicking on the box surrounding North America allows you to choose horn Ihe 

USA as a whole, east and west USA, Canada or a map of the whole lot. 

The maps would benefit from an interlaced monitor as the program switches 
resolutions quite regularly.. 

Each sub- section contains a description of the area, vita! statistics such as area 
and population, travel information, airports and tnvia. Thera aro comprehensive 
menu options, providing information on currency rates, holidays, fmrias and so on. 

Obviously good for geography students, this would fascinate any child who's dis- 
covered the joys ol browsing through an atlas - and come to that, il would help any 
adult blighted by trying to decide where to go lor Ihis year's holiday? 



The History Book 

Asgard PO 

Anolhcr Df the muftimedia-styte packages showing fust how much a com- 
puter can bring to life a lost or mundane subject for an older child, 

This lime it's to the Second World War. and another Hyperbook-created 
disk which documents, in ait their terrible details, ihe horrors of wartime. 

The usual maps,, explanatory text and curiosities are there (I for one had 
never seen the apparently famous picture of Hitter just before ha died), as 
well as hard facts, including grisly details of the casualties in the bomb«ngs 
and battles featured 

As is normal in such programs, topics, keywords and other associated informa- 
tion are all linked, so there is the choice of tutting the program guide you logically 
through itself - or rather, lilting your mind instruct the program which oath So foltow 
through its database. 

The ability to print out information is a godsend too fever thed typing and reading 
off-screen at ihe same time?) and barring slow disk accesses, this is a particularly 
painless .way to familiarise oneself with a very important period in Europe's history. 
It's the best background reading I've ever done.

Horse Code Tutor v2.2 

p*|a Vii* UIOI 

Many people sHli find a vital need for Morse Code, Yachlsmen, ama- 
teur radio enthusiasts, phonetics students - all have a use for dots 
and dashes even in the days of ultra-modern sound and vision 
communications. 

This program's highly comprehensive features include control 
over the pilch, speed and volume of your code, the abillly to select 
which combinations of letters you wish to be tested on h and full 
reporting of your progress. 

Preferred program configurations can be set and saved so that the pro- 
gram always boots exactly how you like if, end these files can be individu- 
alised. so a group of people could all learn a! their own pace, with Ihe 
computer keeping track of each of them. A successful and origin af idea. 


Touch Typing Tutor 

CLR CLU03 

Sec rela rips do it on demand, writers do it through the night. I do it 
clumsily and without much finesse. I'm talking about touch typing, of 
course, that bane of ihe journalist's profession. Oh T for Ihe ability lo 
input information without following my fingers on the keyboard with 
the eyes oi a hawk. 

For those bent on self-improvemenl in this area, this tutor t% one of 
the best I've seen. While it's not quite Mavis Beacon (the world's 
most popular typing tutor) it doesn't cost anywhere near as much, and is 
almost as useful, if Hot as flashy. 

Clearly and colourful I y presented, the tutor has comprehensive menu 
support, with 19 different exercises to load and master. There are error 
statistics, the ability to toggle key “clicking through the monitor (helpful at 
first to assure you that you've pressed a key - though not necessarily the 
right end), and automatic word highlighting. 

Far cheaper than custom typing tutor hardware or the other Amiga soft- 
ware equivalents, this program is both a novel use o! ihe machine and a 
successfully implemented practical tool for the budding typist. 

Chess Helper 

Pathfinder PD 

An original and ambitious disk containing demos of a number oi ^ 
chess programs, as well as the part which concerns us - the Chess 
Tutor, a 

This contains a brief description of the rules of the game, then a 3 
sequence of positions from which you are encouraged to work out ^ 
the best possible move. 

The positions reflect those likely lo be found in the real game, and 
as the author is an Australian player of some repute, you can trust that com- 
puter-generated randomness is not the order of the day herel 

A time limit can be selected, from a five-minute blitz to a five-hour 
marathon. There are checkmate Jests and other questions and puzzles cov- 
ering most aspects of the game. 

All in all. this disk pre- 
sents a real chance for the 
beginner or Ihe chess fanatic 
to learn a great deal easily 
and cheaply from an accom- 
plished player.

Execute, 
Rebooting and 
Kind Words 

I have ibree problems: 

1 . When using the Workbench 
1 .3 Execute command to exe- 
cute a script 1 get the message “Execute 
failed. No K directive". I nave tried Run 
executing Ifte script, which works, apart 
from one problem: the script asks for input 
using (he ask command, but when I run it 
does not wait foe input, but continues with 
the execution. Please tell me how I can 
avoid the error. 

2. When I boot up my machine, it occa- 
sional ly toads in NTSC instead of PAL. 
moaning that the bottom pari of my screen 
is unused, which is very annoying. I can- 
not see any reason why rt does this,, nor 
conned its timing to anything else. Ptease 
tell me why this happens, and whet I 
should do about it r 

3, When using KindWords 3 and print- 
ing docs with graphics in their headers, I 
sometimes get an ampr message when 
the printer starts printing the graphics on 
the second time through, on every page: 
Printer error: Check paper and cabling". I 
click retry and it carries on as normal until 
the next page. Why dongs this happen and 
is there an easy way to avoid it? 

Michael Ricketts, Cheltenham 

1. The problem does not lie wir'tfi 
either the execute or run com- 
mands,. it is to do with your 
AmtgaDQS script or the way m which you 
are calling it Assummg lha r you do no? 
wanf fo pass parameters to your script, the 
syntax that you should be using is: 

mejtf fheftaii 

where filename ts replaced by the name of 
your script Tq pass parameters, you need 
to know n/hat are expected If it ts a script 
that you have written the parameters 
should he specified (On the first tine) using 
the .KEY command, 

2. There are two ways to reboot your 
Amiga: you can either switch it off for 30 
seconds or press Ctrl and the Jwo Amiga 
keys (one at each end of the spacebar) ail 
at the same time, tf you reset too quickly 
the machine does not always reset prop- 
erty and can result In an NTSC display 
instead a PAL one, Also, some games 
automatically set up an NTSC display so 
Shat they will run on both NTSC (American) 
and PAL (European) machines. 

3. When the printer runs out of paper it 
sends a message to the Operating 
System. A copy of this is sent to 
KuidWords which responds with its own 
message, displayed as a requester. 

Some packages allow you fa* speedy 
She length of a page. If this is longer than 
the actual page length the system will 
receive an unexpected paper-out mes- 
sage, The solution is to adjust the page 
length from within KindWords, or from 
Workbench via the preferences editor, fo 
match the physical page length,

I've goi this hard disk drive dungy, bought 
it ft™ Asheorn a few months back and it 
works great. But Itis getting on for quite 
full now so that's about IBOMb (210 model) 
and 1 would like to do a ildy up of the hies 
etc. 

The only shing is. the opt i miser/ renr- 
ganteer programs ] have are public domain 
and neither of them work. So I would be 
silly to buy a commercial program at great 
expense only to find out it didn't work 
either. 

1 did telephone Ashcom and they said 


"sorry we don't know, never tried it rJ . The 
drive i bn ' ? partitioned, as there was no 
setup software with it when It arrived, so I 
just charged on and used it as a big 
floppy.

Wen disk space is limited the operating sys- 
tem wit! split a fik in aweral chunks and zr'Nh- 
them u farmer space h mailable, If this hap- 
pens to h>t$ of files there wM hr a noticeable 
decrease in system perfirrmanoe and the disk is 
sard to be fragmented. 

Disk optimizers will not greatly otter the 


rrrnujmf of disk space used by oil your files, so 
ymt lire p/nAfitfJy to notice flitlf difference in 
that dqxirtmiml. The purpose of an optimizer 
19 iV'i speed up fragmented drives by rrarjjjipzzs' 
-i?Ey to>?r so thnt they are stored in contiguous 
chunks, thereby improving efficiency, 

If you want to increase the amount of free 
space, o?Zf zitfy is to delete some of your files - 
you might like to copy them across to fhpfiy 
first though! 

Alternatively' you could invent in a 
cruncher (file compressor) which will reduce 
file sizes. These are available both in the public 
domain ami commercially, the rtjnsi 1 [piYftffy 
used being Power Packer.

Fancying a game of Cribkiage 

I am writing to find out iho programmer ol a game of Cribbage which appeared on the 
disk which was given away wilti the magazine in November Or could you tel me 
ol any PD library la which it was sold? 

This game was one at the best I have soon. Same time before last tfmslmas my 
Amiga developed a severe virus which pet two or three disks out of operator! I would 
be grateful lor your help as I need \o buy this game. 

$ U foclan r Stowmarket 

Unfortunately, Amiga Computing doesn't keep disks that date that far tack and we 
don't kmm the programmer's details. If there was an associated document you might 
stilt be able to find out 

Falling that, try writing to targe PD companies - someone is bound to have a copy 
of the game that you need or a similar cribbage program.

a question mark as l not wed that they were

This time 1 got all the way to the end, 
but iv hen l booted up from my hard drive !

Conner drive 

I have just purchased an Amiga l2lXl r and 
also an b4\1h Conner hard drive (revision 
237), The problem is I can't seem to install 
anything successfully on it. 

] used Install 3.0 and the A 1 200 re- 
organises the drive OK. I also tried to 
install WB3 on it with the Install WB3 ulil- 
itv, but it oflly go| as far as 12 per cent and 
the HD lighl just stayed on for ever. 

Nothing else was loaded from floppy to 
Ihe HD (l was installing if to the 
Workbench partition that was created with 
the install disks HDSetup utility), Anyway 
there were a few things tluit had been 
installed - one was the dock utility - but 


Hard drive hitch 

Sometime ago I purchased 
an Omega Bernoulli! hard 
drive From □ company called 
Burocare who now soem to 
have ceased trading, t wish to obtain 
a replacement cartridge for it. Would 
you know of a supplier and one who 
might also repair Hie drive in case of 
fautts? 

Des Price, Pantypoot 

A Unfortunately, wo don't 
know of any companies that 
J could help you out Perhaps 
one of our readers may be able to 
assist - wajfch this space. 


nothing else worked, 

t also tried to formal the partitions from , 
the pull-down rm-nus on WB3 but it would 
not format past cylinder 2 on my j 
Workbench partition and cylinder 2% on 
my work partition - I just get a format fail- 
ure and then I am left with two icons with 

???-> 

■ r iif 

When I tried HDSetup it gave me two 
partitions as described above and when I 
double-clicked on the icons they opened 
up the windows to tell me I had 8Mb for 
WB3 partition and 73Mb for my wort- 
partition. 

So then I tried installing Wing 
Commander Id my work partition, it 
installed the three disks to the HD but 
when I clicked on the Wing Commander 
icon I got the message: "Checksum Error 
ON Disk Block 95Q56" or some similar 
number. So il seems my partitions are full 
of bad blocks. 

[ also have QBTools and there is an 
option on it to count bad blocks and mark 
them out of sen 1 ice. Would this solve trn 
problems? Also on QBTcols is an option to 
repair had Jraxvers and fifes or directories 
and when I run that option it tells me I 
have serious root and checksum errors but 
it seems to fix them. 

So pfea.se could you give me a guide to 
successfully installing my drive as 3 
couldn't live if I have broken if (it hasn't 
had a bad knock}. 

Yoimgy. Atloa 

The next thing to try is a law-level format, U 
riuTl fails then you have bought a defective 
drive. Rather than lop yourself, yau should 
return it to your supplier nrfa ask them fa 
replace if, brand ncrc.' tianfriw . 1 ;-

have drawn the shod stem.

which AG A? 

1 would like to upgrade the Amiga 50U to either an A 1200 or A4QDD. plus a 
laptop computer that could "talk T to the main computer. 

At present I do a tot oi DTP, wordprocet&sing and have a large database 
(Prodata k I also uso a spraadgheei quite exlensrvely. 

Now to the question. Do I go lar an A12)OD or an A4OQ07 You see. what puts me oh 
mostly Is the lack of a SCSI-2 interface, which means transferring all the Irisa from my 
A59Q to an IDE harddnve. Is Ihis going to be easy? 

Do I hang on untit the eud of the year and go For an A40BD. when the price might 
have dropped? I rather like the idea of having a computer that is hardware upgradable, 
but on the other hand E2.20G is a fet n( shekels to shell oul in one ga! 

I have a lot ol games and almost as much serious software - would they be compati- 
ble on the 12QQ/4(X>Q? Could I use my modem on the new machine? 

S F Mallion, No va 



Transferring your riles wogitf ^vo/ve them op to floppy then restoring 

them to /DE drive on your new macrijne. A/te™riwe(y, yw couW buy the 
mid-range A4fflQeQ3Q t add a controller 10 your existing drive unit and plug if 
into a Zorro slot The tatter option would also leave scope tor further and-ons. 

As tar as games are concerned, you may experience problems wtth older games 
that did not follow Commodore's programming guidelines. 

Having said that, the AGA machines riavio boot options friaf allow emulation of origi- 
nal and enhanced graphics chips that can be used to solve incompatibility problems. 
Finaliy, you should be able fa use your modem on the new machines.

■ COM PETITION 



Your favourite Amiga magazine 
and First Computer Centre firing 
you the chance to win a Star jet 
SJ-48 bubble jet mono printer 



with a 38- 
page auto 
sheet feeder 


The 

StarJet 

SJ-48 printer could 
he yours for a quick phone 
call which should cost you under £1 
at cheap rate. To keep the cost of 
your cail to a minimum try to avoid any 
background noise, which may necessitate 
the repetition of answers 


The Star jet SJ-48 non-impact 
printer is great value for 
money, giving crisp, high qual- 
ity, quiet portable printing . 
Using the latest ink jet tech- 
nology the StarJet can pro- 
duce draft print in economy 
mode , using less ink which is 
ideal for draft printing and the budget- con- 
scious user. 

This tightly-designed unit weighs just under 
two kiios and only needs the same desk space 
as an A4 folder, so it's easy to slip into a brief- 
case. in operation the SJ-48 is quiet and fairly 
quick, turning in a respectable 100 characters 
per second tetter quality text. 

Roughly translated, an A4 page of mixed text 
and graphics will print in around three min- 
utes, though a page of text using one of the 
built-in printer fonts will appear in half this 
time. Print quality is superb for internal fonts 
and almost as good when using scalable fonts

U P D ATES 


T his month well open with yet 
another update to the 
immensely popular Imagine? 
ray tracer which has already benefited 
from Steve Worley's excellent 
Understanding ttmginel reference manual 
well as the equally impressive Essence 
range of mathematical textures, 

This time however the update doesn't 
concern textures or literal explanation of 
the software, In fact the update in ques- 
tion is an object,, or more accurately sev- 
eral variations on a theme. 

With ImagineZ's success, the bulletin 
boards are fit to burst with various cre- 
ations that will cost you no mnrv than the 
price of a phone call. With that in mind 
the release of a commercial collection 
may seem a little hopeful, 

UNIQUE 

However it must be said that 
Cydejnan is pretty unique. As the title 
suggests the collection isn't simply a sel 
of inanimate objects hut rather a selection 
of walking and running cycle objects in 
addition to a single- jointed static that can 
be given a new cycle of your own design. 

Alternatively, the aforesaid static can 
be dissected or manoeuvred into ativ 
pose,, and of course you also have the 
option to redesign any aspect of the fig- 
ure ready for either Commercial or pri- 
vate applications. 

In addition, editing Isn't simplv lim- 
ited to the main structure of the figure. In 
fact, if say the head is isolated, much 
more subtle effects such as swivelling the 
eves or manipulating the lips and jaw can 
enhance realism even moce dramatically. 

To drive the point home, the eyes - or 
in fact any part of the figure - can be 
mapped with a suitable image or texture 
to further enhance the illusion, of reality. 
As for the cycling variants, life 
couldn't be much easier as application is 
a simply matter of adding the object to 
the scene, applying the required path and 
rendering the anim. Thanks to the repeti- 



animation 



Amiga Updates continues its monthly 
round-up af the latest software 
updates and upgrades 


five nature of a cycle 
object, our hero will 
never slop jogging or 
strolling through the 
scene, pausing only to 
be replaced by his 
modified or static counter w r hen 
necessary. 

In the case of an animation, the overall 
effect is particularly effective its the 
already impressive figure can be clad in 
the textures and attributes of your choice 
while walking, or running effortlessly 
across the scene.. 

As any ray-tracing enthusiast will tell 
you, modelling a believable head never 
mind a complete figure can be difficult 
enough, as a result even at £39.99 I'm 
sure Cycloman will enjoy reasonable 
sales - especially to those w r ho need high 
impact imagery but don’t necessarily 
have the time to create it from scratch, 

Keep you eyes open for endless Corpo- 
rate videos featuring the shiny men from 
Imagine?!

Wordworth 
for Panasonic 

For would-be Word worth investors, there's 
an added attraction for anyone thinking of 
investing in a printer at the same time as 
a W P, 

Courtesy of a tong-standing collab- 
oration with Panasonic, the creators 
of Wordworth have just released a 
special version of the package 
which provides extended support 
for the entire Panasonic range 
with much improved support 
for the internal printer fonts 
over the entire range

Digita and Agfa get it together 


After the emergence of WB2 and indeed WBS, I was 
among the many who expected something of an explo 
sion on ihe font front Alas the typographic big bang 
never really happened - until now. 

As regular readers will be aware, Agfa Compugraphic 
have already lit the fuse with ihe release of their 
AgfaType oolleelims which consist of a starter pack of 12 
fonts for around £30 with a follow-up video pack of 25 
typefaces for a rather pricey £45, 

Although of excellent quality, it must be said that when 
compared to the Digita/Agie collection the aforemen- 
tioned duet do look a little exsodionate. 

The strange thing is that both sets share a very similar 
collection of fonts which often provide identical typefaces 
to those in the initial Agfa release, 

However in the case of the new collection there are 
fairly dramatic differences in price and variety. 

Like the original series the new fonl$ come in several 
volumes - in this case three - entitled Pride and 
Presentation, The Classic Cof lection and finally The 



Reference Library, fn descending order the each volume 
provide 20, 25 and an impressive 50 fonts respectively, 
which as you'd expect build into an impressive library of 
36 publishing-quality typefaces. 

Tho only drawback is, of course, cost - if bought as a 
job lot. they’d set you back a knee Gambling £139.97, 


However the figure becomes a good deal less terrilying 
when broken down into its component pads of £29.99, 
£39.99 and £69.99 respectively. Although stilt not exactly 
cheap. 1 think you'll agree there's a fairly dramatic Irnan- 
cial improvement on Agfa’s initial release. 

Quite why Agfa have decided to combine with Digria to 
challenge their own product is a mystery, but if the end 
result is better value, who canes? With the dominance ol 
Wordworth in the Digita product line an obvious worry 
would be compatibility with other products. 

However any worries in that area are totally unfounded 
as the typefaces are generic and can be used with any 
package boasting support to* (he scalable font technology 
of WB2 and above. 

Even so, Digits have made their mark on (he collection 
via a special Oigila Font Disk Creator which allows the 
user to build up (heir own font libraries specifically lor use 
with Wordworth 

In addision lo these fonts, Dkjita have also released a 
collection of clip art designed specifically lor Wordworth 
which build into a Ibrary with titles including Cartoons. 
Mora Cartoons, Sports and Nature and Geography and 
Transport, with each retailing at El 4.99 a lime.

„ AS I CAM-- 


T he usual wide selection of 
disks received this month 
has reflected the trend 
towards more useful and usable 
software as opposed to mindless 
vector demos and tame music disks, 
prompting a slight change in the lor- 
mat of these pages. 

Replacing the Jukebox Jury and 
Dreams and Visions sections, which 
wore dedicated to music and art 
demos respectively, are Music and 
Art Demos of the Month - the most 
outstanding disk In either category 
received since last issue gels □ 
review. 

■Music means anything from 
Tchaikovsky to techno, and art 
encompasses slide shows, cartoon 
animations, still artwork and so on, 
so there's tote of scope to get those 
creative urges down on, erm, silicon, 
and send them to me aL the usual 
address. So on with that bumper pile 
of non-demonstration software... 


IPD and SHAREWARE

From the most serious utilities to the 
silliest of demos, it's all happening in 
the cut-price world 

of the public PUBLl 

domain. Phil Morse

The most artistically outstanding piece !

a series this one is turning out to be! 

Alter Snow Joke, this latest anima- 
tion sees Charly Cal - whose bite is 
“worse than a shark's", so ihe author 
informs us, attending the -cinema, wm 
some incredibly gory bite. Apologising 
for his sick mind, the author has 
awarded it a PG classification! 

H’S all healthily longue -in-cheek.

HDM vl.1 

CLR 

This ik a multitasking menu system, 
jj med at user*, with Workbench L3 and 
2-0 machines-. Basically such a system 
allows the user to specify a number of 
programs * say your favourite wordpfo- 
ccssor, spreadsheet, a couple of games 
And o database plus vour favourite utili- 
ties - and set them, up so that by simple 
selection from a menu or pressing of a 
key, the program will load automatically, 
possibly running concurrently with any 
Other program you're using at the same 
time {this is where the multi tasking bit 
comes in). 

This system operates by mean^ of a 
menu which rat can have across the hot- 

■r 

h?m of your Workbench screen, vertically 
down the side or in a shrunken form at 
the top. It can display h j n possible pro- 
gram choices ~ selectable via 1 unction 
keys - and as many swifchable banks of 
ten programs as you have the memory for 


The CDjfbrrJon flfCo*W*£ CfljtWft b B tr . fflt CWPpMctxit tl 
ftltf (nhuduT (Hid defflnitetp 

(to - td t w HDM about 50 programs uses a 
mere 23k)~ 

This type of program is nothing new, 
of course, but HDM particularly well 
thought- through and programmed, thus 
making it infinitely more useful than 
some efforts. 

It is happy working in all screen 
modes, has keyboard short-cuts for just 
about everything and even comes with sts 
own hard drive install program, although 
for some reason Workbench 2_l) owners 
still have to do a tittle bit manually to get 
It up and running. Neat. 


The PD concept 

Two main types of software are reviewed and available through these pages. PD, or 
public domain, is software which Ihe author has released for Iree. Mass copying is 
encouraged, and ihe aulhor expects no raium — this i§ whiten for ihe love of it! PD 
libraries will send you such stuff for very little more than the price ol the dis k and 
postage costs. 

Shareware follows the same concept, but asks you to send a fee - normally speci- 
fied in the on-disk documentation - to the author, should you find the disk useful. ITe a 
kmd of Iry before you buy" cancepl, although the fee you finally pay is invariably lar 
lower than the cost ol nusl one piece of commercial software. 

II. is Important thal users send any fees requested, not only (or their own sates 
(you'll probably receive a heller version of the program, and regular updates) but also 
for Ihe sate ol the author, who'll be unlikely to write further programs if he or she sees 
their software in use without having ever receded a penny for it 1 It's a case of giving 
back what you take out, and without this attitude, shareware would die, to the detri- 
ment of us all. 

Licence ware, beerware, charityware and the countless others- you II no doubi come 
across are different only in what Ihey ask you to send in return lor the program, or 
where they ask you to send it to. The concepl ts exactly Ihe same as shareware. 


Comic Clipart 

Highland PD, 593 

Here's something that's nice to see - 
some quality clip art, which for those 
who are perplexed refer* to pieces of art- 
work, usually small and simple, used to 
brighten up anything from company 
notepaper to newspaper and magazine 
articles.. 

The use of a little diagrammatic tele- 
phone instead of the abbreviation ""Tel:" 
when giving a company phone number is 
a classic example of clip art making infor- 
mation easier to ingest. 

This collection concentrates - as the 
title might suggest - on cartoons, with 
superheroes featuring highly. So if you're 
after Spider man to brighten up your 
spreadsheet, the- Human Torch (three 
versions!) for your tetter headings, or 
Thor and Captain America for your new 
underground magazine,, this is the place 
to look. 

A quick peek at some of the artwork in 
DPatot confirmed the quality of this nice 
little selection.

Calling all PD libraries... 


...and individijals wilh skill freebie and cheap software. Whether it's a great new utility 
you ve written, a hazzing little arcade game that Gran comes around especially to play, 
or a left-field political satire animated to the strains of underground German techno 
music, I'd like to see it. 

Just bung your submissions into a Jiffy bag with a note explaining whal they are and 

how 10 use thorn, not forgetting to label your disks dearly too. and I'll guaranies to at 
least give Ihom a look. 

Unfortunately, due to ihe volume of submissions, many don't gel reviewed, bul if 1

boredom low. Before you start, you get to 
choose - among other things - the tnertia 
of your character and Ihe number of lives 
you have, and then it's full-on to the 
game proper, which as well as the usuh 
ally platform y bits, has great pin ball -style 
bonus stages and lots of cutesy graphics. 
VVdl worth the dosh. 

Do you remember the electronic mem- 
ory game Simon? The one shaped like a 
flying saucer with four coloured seg- 
ments which flashed a sequence that you 
then had to copy 1 Well the picture on this 
page should remind you. and if it docs 
you'll need no introduction to thES com- 
puter version.. 

Retaining the flashing lights/ bleeping 
noises of the original, you use the mouse 
to "‘push ' the segments in order. ! here's 
a strange feeling of satisfaction to be had 
when you're remembering 16 and 17- 
long sequences (well that's as good as at 
got for me, anyway) and the FCB-style 
backdrop to this computer version 
makes M look attractive as well as addic- 
tive. A blast from the past and no 
mistake. 

Finally on this disk is Skect, which is a 

Ihe only non-PD bit of the animation, 
meaning the author claims copyright), 
and like Snow Joke, it coniains good 
atmospheric sound effects too. 

A wonderful addition to yoyr collet- 
lion, and if you haven't got ihe olher five, 
Order ihem at the same time. 


i.bnfiy Cut itw o/ Jfwo^ an animation 


Atter an unobtrusive but neat and stylish 
opening screen. The J Edgar Hoover (17 
Bit) ptosenls you with a menu from which 
you can choose to play one of three songs. 

Firsi up is RavEvil,, which is a simple 
and somewhat typical computer^undrng 
lune containing nothing offensive or far- 
ring in any way, but with nothing to really 
grab the attention eilher. 

Shallow Bay, the nexf tune on the list, 
is a remake of New Oder's classic Blue 
Monday, and highly impressive it is loo, ll 
sounds nice, and this rs an extra special 
achievement since it's built Irom the bot- 
tom up from fresh sounds, and still man- 
ages lo sound like the grigmal. 

The lunal lune, Get the Rolls Royce, is 
a Thunder birds remix which most dafi-

Utilitarian 

utilities 



|] 


LSD Legal Tools #99 
Roberta Smith. UT500 

An incredible value compilation of ulili- 
ties, ranging from the useful and not so 
useful to some so bizarre- thal you'd 
imagine only about three people in the 
enline universe could ever find a use for 
them! 

However 


IB utilities on one disk is 
great value for tt .SO- and you'll no doubl 
find at least one of them useful. 

Chopper Is designed to split large files 
or blocks of data into bile-sized chunks. 

I he obvious application being when 
backing up a hard drive, or maybe lor 
importing information into the Amiga 
Iron a lape streamer or opticai disk, 
Simple and useful, although most hard 
drive owners will have acquired some 
kind ot disk utilities package at some 
point which will probably have a more 
automated and user-friendly utility on it 
customised purely for Ihat purpose, 

PGC is a data encryption device tor 
sending files securely between consent- 
ing users. The application o! such soft- 
ware in the United Stales has caused 
revealing and disturbing rumblings from 


the FBI. paranoid ihat people will be able 
to send data which they have little hope 
of ever untangling and so reading. 

Anyway, this is one of a later breed ol 
encryption device, designed to allow a 
■ key code (to allow the other user to de- 
encrypt the file} to be sent across unse- 
cured channels'’ from the message 
sender, Qoh, sounds like mystery and 
inirigue afoot to me! ll also sounds 
totally unfathomable. 

QuickGrab is the utility for me on this 
disk. A reliable, user-friendly, feature- 
packed frame grabber lor 2.0 machines? 
Yup. and about time too. 

Total iy PD, this grabber can save mov- 
ing pictures, has up lo a 99-second delay 
after activation (go for racing to your 
favourite bit in a game} and allows you to 
deline the hotkey combination used to 
activate iL 

You can even Install it in your 
I WBStartup f older, meaning that it will be 
perpetually activated. Definitely the one if 
you’ve been looking in vain lor p way lo 
consistently and reilably grab screens. 

All in all. this is a crammed, well docu- 
mented, no-nonsense disk of well written 
and useful . if at times pretty obscure, util- 
ities. Worth a took.

17 Bit, 2450 

One can't help testing one's suppressed 
cynicism break loose and take over 
sometimes, and I've got that 

Cycling Mileage Recorder did just that to 
me. How in the world could anyone 
extract any use from such a program? 

However, it's a mistake to judge a 
book by its cover, so just to get some evi- 
dence with which to slate ibis ch^k,, L 
booled it up. 

Well, it's not that bad really. It's a 
nicely presented program which allows 
vou to enter lots of fttattshcat information 
about bow far and for how long ¥Du r ve 
cycled each day, presenting a number of 
overall statistics at the touch of a button 
about your cycling activities. 

Hang on* I'm sorry, hut 1 can t see 
anyone past the junior stage of unques- 
ti oning -en th u s la sm-fur- mad ca p-idea-s 
extracting any use from this whatsoever. 

A good example of a program that really r 

really didn't need to be written. Strange-

This rather seminal arcade game in imic of 
the more original I've seen in recent 
weeks. The presentation is all sophisti- 
cated sci-fi H Aliens^ tyle, and the game set* 
its scene beautifully with a full description 
and pictures of all the aliens you're likely 
to encounter. 

Although the playing area ss a well- 
shrunken part of the screen, it's a very 
compelling idea comprising a crosshair 
controlled by the mouse which leaves 
tracer trails. 

You use th ose to trap the blob-like 
aliens before they reach the edge of the 
screen, by which point they J ll have 
become extra powerful and a graver dan-

j>er to your safety - 

Should you touch the edges of the play- 
ing area, your energy drains at an alarm- 
in- rate, and so the game becomes a battle 
between speed and accuracy on the 
mouse. 

An ambitious and well-presented cross 
between Tron and Light Cycles l.sort til), 
this is mental ly stimulating but in the end 
limited Ln the excitement stakes. 

Fun House 

Roberta Smith, SGA195 

A wry nicely presented set of three pnv 
gran»y of which two are games and one is a 
demo. The first of the games is entitled 
Enigma, and is a Hie game based around 
varying shapes of board. 

Your task is to unite simil- 
iarly coloured tiles, at which 
point they disappear. When 
you've cleared a whole level in 
this way, you get a more com- 
plgx board to play on. It’s sim- 
ple, well realised and 
addictive! 

rhundertmn is - yes, you've

evergKicn arcade ,r cLassk"- I'm 
sorry hut it's getting a bit 


much. I got a disk the other day with five 
versions of this damned game on it' Say n« 
more, 

Finally Imagine 3 is a demo, which b.i^

tasteful drawn ait, hut unless yuuV.

don't know wtat it is, but ever since I'vfc b*n 
V wp’ding lily weary wuy to At Tower* - which 
is no mean feat, as it's in the middle of 
no where, seren mils up 0 pig' s colon - I keep 
getting ihewgr gores. 

Ptaose, don't get me wrongs I' m nd moonkg, It's 
just Ihot until r^cervriy I was the iyp& of goy who'd 
trip through blossomed nwcdows, and go around 
preaching lore., peace and generally nonviolent 
admfe. 

Now look uf me, fhey'^e turned mo into a child 
eating, bcta-bufdwring, warmongering mamac, 
But enough of my frfcalems, let's see whoKs on 
today's ram. 

War in the Guff is a tank sire hum ihs some 
people who brought you award winning Pacific 

blonds and Team Yankee. Now before you off jump 
to the wrong condusicns, HI ptycu right 

Tcnks ere not those outdated, large, lumbering 
Pisces of metal, They re no longer fce Tony Adams 
of the military wodd. Not If lb* American Chiefs of 
Staff are to be beiip-'d. In fact, a lame proportion of 
the wcw of the 1990 Gulf conflid was down to the 
armoured divisions. 

This brings me rather nearly an to my second 
point This is nert-as most of us thought - based on 
the original flare up in the Mktdte East. 

Insteod, we are swep \ forward in time to 1995. 
As always with this renamed hot spe* here's hw 
ble. Following a maelstrom of violence and pdified 
unresi, Iraq, ted by Mr personality Saddam Hussein, 
decides to wota :jack into Kuwait. Is it me or have S 
experienced deja vu? 

Well there's no prizs* for guessing wba» job it 
is to take control of motors rmd free Kuwait. 

Funded by the extremely wedMiy Emir, you and 
youf mouse mcnipulrfe the deshny of eon Kuwait 1 , 
Team Kuwait comprises same of the latest hard- 
ware to grace the front drive of the US nrulihory, 




Ever landed getting tanked up and 
kickin' up yuur own desert storm? Well 
here's your chance to cause armoured- 
gedden in Empires' War in the Gull 


including the lelhal M-l Abrams main battle tor- 
You take command of fou tank units, simultaneous 
ly controlling a total of 14 vehicles. 

following some nice intro screens, the hrsl lask in 
hand is to set your far® an objective. Empire m 
boosting 25 battle zones - so there's plenty 1 to 
choose from o campaign . the action begins 
on one particular island and moves inland as you 
become more adept. 

Now ifs lime to deploy your (orats. This h whsn= 
the first element ot strategy shows ib tac* 
Ohvtousi^ dtffwwl vehides hare varying capobili 
hs, but there's 'more to ift than that, Afeneybogi 
himself, the Em if of Kuwait, controls the purse 
strings, giving you pocket me^ey to buy the hard 
ware to do the jet. 

Sounds simple enough? Unfortunately he onl> 
counts up on results and doesn't like it when you 
blast large hotes in ancient monuments w other 

Kuwaiti tniRures 

Next pphof : at your disposal is whether or ntf to 
set artillery support. Having pondered that one 
fhrou^, afi on to the main gome screen, t should 
really hare used the plural there because the mam 
ftre^i redly consists of "our; each one of the tank 
units occupies a quarter of the screen. 

All of Jiese areas am be indeperatently accessed 
by mouse-driven icons. 5o it's possible to vkw oil of 
yout yurts at ihe same lime 

However, it's highly unlikehr that you'll utilise this 
option too often, as its hard to determine whqfi 
cping on and this manoeuvre genffolfy results ri aU 
of your tenks being ripped open like so many tins d 
sardines. 

Instead it's a lot more canny to operate Iram a 
full screen view. Here, both lank and externo 
g? uphks gain dciity and good old user-friencunevs. 

The toetkoi aspects of WITG are all decided 
within the battle mop- ticking on to this screen div

Typical Sunday m&rmnu, Every ?*** down

This dF odds to im realism whudi is generaterl Hie 
enemy ore ei^emdy intelligent and show no mercy 
when it comes to the crunch, Sodden's Reaubltogn 
Guard being partkulnry ruthless. 

The sound involved throughout is spartan hut 
effodim But let’s face it, whm yoO’re crammed into 
0 spore the size of a Sling ct±inet you can badly 
hear much. 

Whol reolly grabbed me about Empires' 
endeavours is toe realism. tfs not so much the v^sud 
quality - which has to be said k -excellent - so much 
as the speed. The game plays of □ Veal-time* pore. 

This gives the player rime, if no time to rood to 
surprise oHodcs. There're plenty of occasions I sai 
there perplexed, pulling my hair curt,, wotehkig my 
vehicles being decimated by unseen foe. 

The relative cunning of the Iraqi forces mates 
this an sncnstSbly tough nut to and, There’s little 
point in sending your forces out willy- nilfy. You have 
to have a strategy. This dement of affairs add to the 
overall addidivenow of War m he Gull 

I know the Gulf conflict is a hit of a touchy sub- 
ject m same areas. I also can't help feeling that 
there's something a mite sad atwut the mooting 
strategy employed - riding m the back df a war to 
sell gomes. 

Howevw, ifs been done before,, and no doubt 



ipiU aeu i slwt fft mj hoy* starmiag

H'SS he done again. So, mofdkmg apart, il has to be 
said that War in the Gulf is a quality product It will 
appeal to bath actem and strategy punten d ike, and 
it tricky *tough to render it both compulsive and 
oddktive. 

So if you're c budding stormin' Norman, this is 
definitely the game for you. Should keep the trooas 
amused far months.

now is regarded as one of the best texts on milk

Anyway, on with the game. You're in charge 
of on airforce Full of First World War bombers and 
fighters. The net result is strategic air conflict, with 
your successes and failures having an effect on 
the ensuing land bottles. The ultimate obfediw is

Microprose are back 
again with more

action 


from the side. This sounds a very ampiislK in- 
tern to employ for a strategy-based game, bui 
it s extremely affective and great fan trying to 
blast the brotwurct off the Sonon, 

The graphics are nothing auhtard-ng for the 
Amiga, but are presented: well enough. The ani- 
mation techn-q a is pretty clewr though,, wilh the 


plane able to replicate most of the ckiiiit aero- 
batic manoeuvres, from Immdmans to a hall 
Cuban eight - sounds add staff that! 

The other nice touch is that Are expertise of 
the enemy pilots varies, ham the 
killer instinct of fcnf on Richthofen 
relative in competence of Helmut von Spike. 


tied philosophies vary - ol your choice. 

Having chosen the campaign that tickles your 
fancy, you ore presented with the main game 
screen. This is represented using on overhead 
view of the battlefield. 

You control on icon which when dragged to the 
edge of the screen scrolk ihe game through six 
screens, enables you to vww any feature relevant 
to the gome, as wdl as plotting the flights c# your 
flimsy bombers, 

k the first thing you're going to want to do is 
ta fetch your Handley- Page horn she hanger and 
gel yourself airborne. This b a simple enough task 
- just click on one of your awfi airi itSd± as>d a 
menu prompts you to sefect pilots and aircraft. 

The next priority k to set your flight orders. 
These include such choices as altitude, speed, 
flight formation and of course the target 11 oil 
sounds easy enough and in terms of operation it 



AfcfcT There" S naming quite like It... 
[ir^pplritj your IdhI all mf Ike uim ny 

is; the compltoaheins that arise are purely tactical. 

For example, rfs ch-so-eosy to set your alti- 
tude incorrect^ then tom time far the wild blue 
yonder and your Ibrnve boys plough into the s»efe 
of the Alps, 

So having selected whkh part of the from you 
have design! an decimaling, ifs over to your 
Amigo, which au tomatic ally handles all of the 
action unless yew wish to intervene and decide 
your pitot's fate. 

This b redly whore the game transcends from 
ooe genre to another, Hwmpi so far being totally 
strcttegy-baic-d wHfri little action, the dog lighting 
and bombing wqueoret are definitely in (he 
arcade vein, 

Dcwg fighting aw the skies of France is viewed

Dependent upon the of the fracas, with 

your fighters, the rtoil arcade sequence puts you 
in consol of the rear gunner m your bomber, 
fending off those pesky Fokkers. 

This works using the some side view os dog 
fighting and to oil intonis, and purposes has fhe 
■.□me feel to it,, the only difference being that 
your bomber \% rather more clumsy and vuhwrci 1 
Ue. 

Assuming you ve done well enough to fight 
off the rete-nrfess enemy triplanei then ir's bombs 
away, In this sub-game you are presented with 
the bombardier 1 1 view looking down at terra 
iirma through your 

bomb-sight. 

This aspect of die action is very lough. Mat 
only ore circumstances made difficult by cloud 
and wind r but also ground -based anti-aircraft 
weapons ore perpetually peppering your balsa 
wood bombers 

Mailer? one mode worse by the fad that your 
bombs have a skit mug tendency to drift- in my 
case noun ally away from the target - making it 
rough if not impossible to successfully destroy 
enemy Kffalofaftt. 

In most cases during a campaign, if success is 
what you'd iik* to toiler "ft probobty belter to let 
the computer take charge of your destiny. 

However, W % a sweet feeling when you fill the 
opposition with bulets from Nighty and see them 
nose-dive dawn into no man's land. 

Overall, War in ihe Skies is rather successful. 



w*l| ihoughl-wt strciipgy game. The enemy don't 
lie down easily, they react with guile and aggres- 
sion, making far difficult, yet addictivefiy compul- 
sive war gaming. This is nicely transposed by the 
arcade sections whkh are, guile frankly, spiffing 
good fun! 

The downside of oil this - like most good 
things there has to be one - is thcil the sound k 
rather limited and a lifrir puny. But far more 


annoying is the number of disk swops one h sub- 
jected to during loading. 

That aside, War in the Sktes Es a fine faniy 
into aerial st^oiegy and combat, For all would-be 
tacticians out there it's sure to he a winner, but 
there's denfy mugh within the game to keep us 
lesser mortals, who like blasting things into small 
pieces, quite satiated .

This it the only spell you pottos* at the beginning 
of the game, ft never runs out and has ability to 
turn enemies into frogs. 


Fireball; 


Spell of medium power only, still it does provide 
you with straight, rapid fire. 


Spell of medium power, fires into the air and 
bums the ground upon landing. Would came in 
handy if you ever decided to go to o riot. 

Bowling boll: A powerful, but slaw spell. Con be used to neu- 
tralise strong enemies and also handy for play- 
ing ten pin bowling. 

Magic ^dflfcse- Allows you to create steps. You can ihus grab an 

useful object or find a raised exit. Steps disap- 
pear after a few seconds. 

Boir b' Big black thing that goes boom! Weapon of 

medium strength, but highly important in Hie 
gome. It will help you to reach places that at first 
seem totally inaccessible. 


Teleportation: Spell depicted by a coin which you threw to the 

area to which you want to be transported. Good 
for getting out of difficult situations. 


Multiplication; Thing you did in maths. With this spell you con 

done yourself and thus gang up on particularly 
difficult enemies. 


Circular saw; 


You can buy them from B&Q. Once thrown it fol- 
lows the contours of the scenery and will elimi- 
nate everything in its way. 


A highly powerful spell that will destroy every- 
thing on the screen. Uses up a lot of energy, so 
use it sparingly. 


Metal me (tears A weapon with little power which nevertheless 

allows you to destroy all metal doors. Handy rf 
you're stuck in a mom with surrounding metal 
doors I suppose, 


Mogk bridge A spelt with no power at alt, but very useful as it 

allows you to build a temporary bridge.

cutesy gomes i hale, so what happens when I dehe

what type of game iv is, 

A flight simulator? Nope A hard-edged Wl af

cutesy skkfy happy platform romp? Yep, you got it. 
Oh dear. You ploy the part of Zmira,, a bnrre little 
witch. Now you can sue me if Fm wrong, but ever 
since [ saw the Wizard of Oz I 
was brought up to bd+M that 
witches were horrible hags 
with green face* and warts 
who cackled a lot and were 
generally not nice to know.

Oh well, Tw get o cutesy sickly sweet plar

before. 

Zmira has 10 discover ond conquer four world*

Huere are four different types of screen that go

V, 















Ow for rfiose you out there who hov# 
looked at ihe title of this game and 
thought "hmm that sounds familiar*, 
Wgll, for (hose of you ore old enough 
Bo remember, Apocalypse wos originally going to 
be produced md rtmeted by Mirror soft. 

Well, of course I don' I need to tell you ony more 
because you will plmndy know iho* i^imocsoh were 
once port of the Mirror Group. 

You will gl» in-hjm know thot the Mirror Group 
wo s run and owned by RaWi Maxwell who 
impressed us oil with his twiited |hmmj treble pike 
into the ocean off hi; luxurious ygiht 

This lutn of tverrts eventually brought down ihe 
□J«e on Mirrorsoft and also on their forthcoming 
releases including one of the biggest and most 
hyped gomes ever, Apocalypse. 

Now one de^ cm employee at Virgin Gomes 
wos looking through some "whatever happed 
tow.* files and up pepped ApoccJypse Being astute 
business types, Virgin promptly snapped it up. 
Hands were shaken and there were smiles dl 
round. 

Apocalypse is almost hens. The gome wall be 
released ihis Summer and it i$, in my humble but 
ev?r accurate opinion, going Id be absolutely mas- 
sive. 

The game borrows a lot of its ideas and looks 
horn the film Apocalypse Now which is regarded 
by many as the definitive war picture thanks Ic ils 
amazing seme of realism and groat acting 

You take to the skies m a super sleek helicopter 
and prepare io take everything the enemy can 
throw at you, h term? of gumepby it's basicaHy q 
SfraightfarwunJ shoot em-up h but in terms erf sight 
and sound it looks like being heralded as o Project

vertkafly os well tit horizontally which makes it □ 
lot mare interesting,, as «ell as making ihe ploying 
area that bit more expansive and none realistic. 

Il comes complete with a whole range el dun- 
rung sound effects such os heavy machine gun 
fire, mwlli- layered explosions, roarmg flames and 
SCrwns, 

II il also littered with pgralfox effects thai

Mi rode Games are handling its development 
and prodkiclion, and their aim vm to creole o 
product For rhe Amigo that would be worthy of an 
arcade machine. Having seen a demo of ihe 
game I con confidently say that they have indeed 
achieved that aim. 

Apocalypse will blow you minds when it 
orrrves on the shop shelves in a couple of months.

find yourself in a world of mayhem where you live 
in seconds, not y errs, Although you are surround- 
ed by madness and action, ihe game stifl com- 
mands o bit of order to make the game playable', 
As mentioned before^ it is loosely based on 
Apocalypse Now which of course was about ihe 
Vietnam War. The game isn't what you'd call

the muddle of Vietnam, the movie stored Martin Sheen, Robert Duvall, Morion Brando and Dennis 
Happer. 

It was directed by Francis Ford Coppola who was more recentfy responsible for the bo* office hit Bram

One of the best quotes from the movie is when, just alter on air strike, Lieutenant Colonel Kilgor*

complete ihe level you hem to kravel to the nexL 
This i$ perhaps- the mosl impressive thing I hove 
ye I - to see on the Amiga. 

Ifs o super fest, super ^rolling shoal 'em-up 
which left everyone in the office doing impres 1 
iioflis of guppies. The screenshots look OK., but 
when this boby moves it is jost incredible. Yon II 
s« what j meani when the gamfi starts to reach o 
few CoverDisks you can check i! out fer 
yourself. 

Probably the best thing about Stordust is the 
price - if'fl only set you back £14,^9. Bbodhovse 
ore stressing shot ihe gome ii not on budget, bat 
they felt ihal gamers are getting o bit of □ rough 
deal at the moment - and what better way to get 
■every one to buy your game? 

Bfeodhoure hove gofl o couple of other games 
that are skill ot the development stage. Qrce & an 
arcade adventure that cleverly combine* p«*ygw 
ond bitmap graphics and ihe olher is a plot- 
fgrnteir which uses a unique full-screen onimohgn 
technique. 

At the moment they are looking for new dii- 
tfibuiaf s r wholesalers and retaifers J sc I suggest 
that atiyone mtcfested give them o coll ond damn 
quick too. 

Bloed^auss are going Fa be massive 1 can 
guarantee it, ond Team 17 are going, ko have to 
icok over their shauWers now and again because 
the competition ft here. All I need la do now is 
brush up on my Finnish. 


new, though, is who on this earth is going to 
challenge them for the till* of all-round top 
gpmes-producing heroes? 

Welj take a look at the screenshots on this 
very poge and the game could be mistaken fee a 
Team 1 7 product, but it's nok. Sloodhouse are a 
software com pony hem Finland end ihey mast 
definitely are the next big thing. 

Stardust is Bloodhouse's first ever product 
and has been created entirely in-house wilh no fe SiM has decided ho destroy 
outside help at all The Bloodies, m they shall the whale galaxy md kid- 

be krww, say thal Stardust is one of the m p beautiful Princess 

\n games ever y 0 j r fulfil his evil 
scheme he uses his dour 
ggraus agents cunningly 
disguised os meteors to 
clear the galaxy of all 
human life. 

You play the pan a( 
the hero with the targe 
mwilomy wha just hap- 
pens to own a heavily- 
armed irto r gdaclic star 
ship. If you succeed 
everybody will cheer and 
buy you pints., bat if you 
(oil everyone they II come 
round to your house, heal 
up your dog end nick your 
teHy* 

Bock to the graphics, which 
in this cose are worth mentioning 
twice. They were produced usiogi the 
roy-lracing technique to an extent as yet 


Better watch out, there's a brand new 
software house about. Bloodhouse are 
here to amaze and entertain you... 


unknown in the world af 
computer gomes. 

■, Stordusl also uses 32 
‘i colours in rhe overscan 
mode and a new 
si*-tbannel stereo 
\ sound routine., 

The disk routines 
\ have been made as 
\ foil and simple os 
possible. It's almost 
as easy OS using a 
console and leading 
time has been 
reduced to an 
absolute minimum. 

The gome has token 
a whole year to devel- 
op and benefits bom 
the chief programmer

it is loosely based on the old pub favourite 
Aitotoids. but has been given, a whole new lease 
of life thanks to the latest Amigo technology. The

fr *xt Script JUn 1 + 3 



nc of the more significant uses of AK^xx - 
derived from Its parent language Rexx - is 
the ability 10 extend the system's command 


language to create custom commands, 

Now, you may think that writing your own com- 
mands for file management is too difficult, but remem- 
ber that ARexx can already use the existing Amiga DOS 


commands. 

This combination of AmigaDOH and! ARexx allows 
you to create your own custom utilities tu do exactly 
what you want, when your existing uii lilies do not 
quite make ft. 

Our example this issue deals with the management 
of directory trees. This is not a critical issue when you 
are using i\ system without a hard dbk drive, but ii 
becomes increasingly important as hard disks get larg- 


er. 

The kind of iobs that we are most likely to 
encounter include the locating, searching and identify- 
ing of hies. I recently used a script similar to the one 
presented here for extracting information from several 
CD-ROMs 

Our program uses rhe standard Amiga DOS command 
“list", along with an ARexx program that checks all the 
subdirectories in the given directory; it returns the total 
size of the directory, including subdirectories. As far as 
t know there is no AmigaDOS command that can do 
this useful job. 

In order IQ lie abb to traverse (scan) an arbitrary 
directory tree to its full "depth” and check for all subdi- 
rectories, it is necessary to use the programming tech- 
nique known as recursion. 

Recursion is a method of programming, where func- 
tions can keep calling themselves until a specified con- 
dition is met. ft is useful when exploring structures 
(like lists and trees) whose size is not known before- 
hand. We had a brief look at ARexx and recursion in 
the April issue. 

If you are familiar with a language like C Pascal or 



Logo you w ill already know about recursion. But if you are 
coming from classical Basic, where only iteration is used 
the concept may at first seem a little foreign. 

However, recursion is arguably the single most useful 
computing technique, and it is now being supported by sev- 






Read through and run our program, 
treesize.Tex^ on the CoverDi&k- 
There are a law things to bear irn 
mind;: 

Our main program calls a second 
ARexx program(macro) called 
file Jotah rexx. This macro finds the 
size of each individual directory 
can he used on i(s own, eg: 

rt ")sy Ifle.tfltlU'libll') 

You should copy it to your rexx: direc- 
tory. Make sure that there is a valid 
assignment for rexx:. At so make sure 
that the rexxsupport library is avail- 
able. The following two lines should 
he somewhere in your startup: 

rilit rsmiuppotl.l Ib'Sry 3 -!C i 

assifn r*n: jyjiiBii 

Now the main program. First Ihe 
command line is checked to make 
sure that Ihe specified directory is 
legal. If no directory is specified, the 
program assumes we want the cur* 
rent directory. Pragma! ) gives us its 
name. 

( have also added a quiet option, 


The program 


which onty prints out the total size, 
instead of printing the complete sub- 
directory structure, This is a bit of a. 
Iasi minute add-on, but that is the 
charm of ARexx - it can be as ele- 
gant, or as 'quick and dirty" as you 
want. 

After ell the initial stuff, we call our 
tteesize function. Before it descends 
to the next level, the function per- 
forms the following actions: It prints 
the name of its current level and then 
generates a list oi all its subdirecto- 
ries. It there are none, it just gets me 
sizes of the files at that level, and 
returns. 

If there are subdirectories, it enters 
a loop, where it processes each one 
in lum, The names of the directories 
are placed in a list (subdirs) which is 
processed by the expression: 

RlRSE HR sufcdin n«»dir subdir* 

You can see that this expression 
uses a loan of recursion! Each subdi- 


rectory from the list is men passed lo 
the function. Also, every time the 
function is called, a bit of extra tab 
space is added, to make for prettier 
printouts. 

Every time the lunction returns, the 
size of the subdirectory is added to 
the total until there are no more. Then 
the size of any files at the current 
level is also added to the total and the 
loop is exiled. 

Then the total is printed and the 
function exits. Simple but very power- 
ful. The Basename() function simply 
extracts the name we want to print 
from the lull pathname, and highlights 
it 

Finally, a few words about the 
file, total macro. Alt that it does is 
direct the output of the “list’ to a tem- 
porary file. This file is Ihen read and 
alt the numbers are added up. That's 
all there rs to it! ■ 

The only peculiar thing about it is 
that we reverse each line before we 
parse it. This ensures that very long 
lilenames. or names with blanks in 
them will not upset our parsing, If 5 
weird but it works very well.

AREXX 


Frjl modem Rasies, including Amos. A Rex* * provides a quite a 
good platform from which to learn ahcnii it. 

To ge< the basic idea have j look at the example tree in 
Diagram I. Mere is a simplified model of y function that traverses 
such a tree recursively: 

T1AVER5K a directory ) 

Do ACTIONS BEFORE nesi level 
LOOP WHILE there art more subdirectories 
TRAVERSBC next subdirectory ) 

END of LOOP 

Do ACTIONS AFTER returning 
RETURN TO PREVIOUS LEVEE 


Notice thai when the function calls itself* any effects o\ the 
Actions Before' (including the values of any variables] are pre- 
served, and are nut affected by the actions ai the next level 
down; once the function return* from that level, it can earn' on 
working where it had left off", so to speak. 

The trade-off for this convenience is rhe size of the memory 
required. If you are traversing a tree with many levels, you can 
leave quite a backlog Ik 1 hind you, and it all has to lx? kept in 
memory until you return to deal with it. 

Now let's look ai our example tree in Diagram 1 again. 
Suppose that we traverse tr, printing the name of each level as 
soon as we enrer it (ie as pan nf the "Actions Before" in. our 
pseudo code }. 

Then, predictably die directory names will lx printed in the 
following order; abcilcfgh, On the other hand if the name 


was printed as part of the 
"Actions After ', the order would 
be: c d h f g h « a . Follow the 
arrows on Diagram I, and you w]]| 
.sec that this is .so, 

II the name was printed both 
'before" and “after" dealing with 
the next lev el down, the sequence 
would look like this a b c c d d b 
cfgghhea , or ro look at it 
more graphically, by adding the 
appropriate spaces: 

a a 

b be e 
cc dd ff gg hh 


You can see that what 
happens ss a series of descents 
and ascents into the tree branches 
which make a son of “bracketing" 
effect. 



t his property is exploited tu gnud effect by our example pro- 
gram Tht 1 name of the directories are written on entry p but the 
sire in only written when all the sublevels have Ixen checked 
and counted!

lifrciugh Media Madness has already had a brief men- 
dan in AC'S four-page Elam it Pipes Prf > 2 special m 
June, it si ill warrants closer attention especially for 
iber vklcaphilt who wants a silky smooth comhination of Midi, 
video and assorted multimedia elements - whether they be 
hardware or software. 


] ; or those who missed the June issue, Media Madness - as you 
may have guessed - r< an element within the overall B&PPro2 
environment,* offering the unique ability to control multimedia 
events via Midi information. 

As you're no doubt aware, B&PPro2 is primarily a Midi 
sequencing package which in normal riK-umsu rices would lx* 
much more at home within the Insight music column. 

However with the addition of Media Madness die horizons of 
Midi - and sequencing in general - have been broadened by an 
almost infinite degree, 

[.ike any self-respecting sequencer, B&PPro2 and in turn 
Me ilia Madness are strictly Midi-literate and as a result take their 
Instructions .solely from Midi information already present on tin. 1 
track or played live 

|ust like normal Midi music, multimedia events can also be 
interpreted in real-time and as li result images, arums anti even 
hardware control can l>e fired-up and recorded in real-time. 


In the case of normal Midi data, the Information is simply 
read E>y the sequencer and assigned to as specific channel, 
which then emerges as a voice whether it be from a synlh or 
sound module. 


Tile clever part about Media Madness is tiiat it follows exactly 
the same pnncipEe as the main sequencer hut rather than assign- 
ing lone Lind pitch to note data ti applies a multimedia event. 


VIDEO 



equipment. On the genlock side tools are 
provided for both tine SuperGen 2000 and 
GVFs I «- Lock. Continuing in a GVP-fnend- 
ly vein, support has also been included for 
the IV 24 - with a tool designed specifically 
for i he board's PEP option allowing auto- 
mated freeze Frame control from inside the 
sequencer, 

Better still, even more video-esque tools 
allow access to the Media Phile Desktop 
Videts System, the Panasonic Optical Laser 
Disk Player. The Video Toiler and hstlv 

j i 

the SunRize 12 and 1 6 -bit sampling 
boards. 

When all til the above is added to the 
incredible power and flexibility of the 
B&FProl sequencing environment you end 
up with arguable the best multimedia con- 
trol system on the market. 

If you have a yearning to add Midi to 
you creations and boast a system that can 
lake advantage of what the new B&FPro2 
ran provide, even the Ji299 asking price 
seems cheap. For more information on RSPfTo2 and 




Madness contact Meridian Software Distribution on 
0Slo43 3SOO. 





This is achieved be using a Hit List which simply appends a 
specific event to any one of die 12ft notes available within each 
Media Madness track This is done by opening the specific 
Media Madness tool and then simply defining the event which 
will occur whenever that note is encountered during playback nr 
recording 

Better still, the Midi information used by Media Madness isn't 
restricted to simple Midi-on Midi-off information, and nowhere 
is this better Illustrated than within the Last Slide Show - other- 
wise known as an IFF picture view. 

Aside from simply displaying die image on request, any pdich 
bend or modulation on the note also affects the image with fad- 
ing and colour cycling being added live or edited in later via the 
program's graphic note editor. 

Most of the tools listed in the box on this page - widi the 
exception of Sea I a - don't require any specific software, 
However for hardware the .situation is completely reversed 
with a number of tools dedicated entirely to specific bits of 


Bars, pipes

audio-video blues as Media Madness

For the average Amiga 
videophile animation,

most important elements of any produc- 
tion. As a result ANIMal - alias the anim

you choice allowing completely automat- 
ed anim handling - all perfectly synced 
to a Midi backing track. 

As for statics, all the 
essentials have already 
been mentioned with 
basic set-up following the same format 
of opening the requester and assigning 
the image to the note in question. 

Wrth the wide variety of 
options on hand, manu- 
al addition and editing 
of every event would be a real pain. As 





Those soft tools... 


a result the Punch Bag tool has been 
included offering a live recording and 
testing device which srts on the input to 
(he track ready to instantly translate live 
input from the keyboard into the multi- 
media even) of your choice, 



On a technical note 
comes the Command 
Performance foot allow- 
ing the software to control olher software 
or hardware via AFtexx or Te>rt sitings. 

Next on the techie list 
comes the MM 
Recorder which pro- 
vides an alternative method of recording 
files that can then be used in conjunction 
with the stand-alone Media Madness 



Player. Although useful - according to 
the manual - ihe same effect can be 
produced by simply using the record 
option within Ihe interface. Strange bui 
apparently handy on occasion. 


t 7 


Although samples are 
supported within the 
main sequencer the 
SamplePhone offers the unique opportu- 
nity to assign a different 8-bit sample to 
every one of the 128 available notes, As 
a result a potential production could 
boasl animation with synchronised sam- 
ples plus of course a Midi sound track. 



In a rare show of com- 
radeship, Blue Ribbon 
have learned up with 


Sea la to produce a link which allows 
B5PPro2 and in turn Media Madness to 
control Scale by assigning the loading 
and playback of pre-defined Sea la 
scrtpls. 

This tool above all others shows the 
one downfall of the Media Madness 
environment, namely the huge demand 
on system resources required to run the 
software. In order to operate the Scala 
and S&PPro2 combination effectively 
you'd require at least 6Mb of RAM 
hgused inside an 030 or belter. 



Last and most definitely 
least comes Yak - a 
tod that hke it or not 


offers the chance to employ the cheesy 
talents of the Amiga’s internal speech 
to add that certain something to your 
production. Funny rather than particular- 
ly functional is probably the best

THE GENLOCK PEOPLE 


Do you want to overlay computer 
graphics or titles onto your videos? !f 
so. you will need a Genlock. 
Rendale Genlocks are built to a very 
high standard, and are used widely 
in the professional environment.

8802 

£ 139 - 


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

functions that you need, such as: 

* RGB feed through, allowing for a preview monitor. 

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

computer graphics. 


life 




£178 


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

keyhole modes 1 & 2, 


k| e The Rendale Super-8802 is a development of the basic 8802 unit, it performs 
| \ j the same functions, but has the added capability of also working with Super- 

VHS signals The unit will allow the user to cross fade between the Amiga 
and video signal. In addition, some basic wipe patterns are provided, and 
also a fade to black option. Mode control is also provided via hardware. 



£499 - 






FMC 

£45-fitted 


8802 FMC Unit 

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

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




UPGRADE PATHS 


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

I 1 £ £ design process. 

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

unit for around two days. 

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

two days.

I Ithough t]it Amiga Li on a real musical high it's still 
» * ij suffering .something of a credibility gap in pro dr- 
I t Its., This lias been due in part the htrud start 
enjoyed by the ST but also some of tile power options the 
Amiga Jta.s overlooked in the past. 

I nnuiuiely blue Ribbon have spotted the gap and taken the 
long-imtiespaied step to dose it with the release of Bars tk Pipes 
Pro2 now Triple Play Plus - a -iH-channel Midi interface 
that could add the final nail to the lid of the ailing ST coffin 
A 1 - tar as plug-in hits ol plastic are concerned the new Triple 
Play Plus doesn’t exactly leave you gasping for breath - at least 

not on an aesthetic level However beneaih the bland exterior 
lurks real Innovation 

On the taie of it this unassuming black box simply provides 
i he usual selection ol three Midfouts, one Midi-in and a singu- 
lar Thru-port all connected to the machine via a generous 
length of cable. 

MIDI SWITCHING 

l! used wiili packages other than those in the Blue Ribkm 
stable, the unit's humble appearance is reflected m its jjerfor- 
mance - operating pretty much along the lines of a bog-stin- 
tlaid lb-channel tniertatv with the only real difference being 
the ability' to switch between the three available Midi-outs via a 
small tt>]hvarr utility, 

How ever, when our anonymous-looking peripheral is 
employed in concert with elements from the Blue Ribbon 
range, [III humble black box takes on a whole new persona. 
Crime are the constraints of the standard Midi environment, to 
I*.' replaced by an amazing aH channels all eager for simultane- 
ous application, 

By selecting one of three outputs - courtesy of add-on rod* 

- the relative data is sent to the chosen Midi-om on the rear of 



older elements in the blue Ribbon range 
l ; or the vast majority. Triple Play will be 
destined for Bars* Pipes |>m in any one of 
its various forms. However, even ageing 
members of the Blue Ribbon user base 
aren’t ignored courtesy of dedicated tools 
designed specifically for the original 
ftarsfiPipes program. 

fortunately all the necessary drivers and 
loo! variations come as standard with the 
Triple Play support disk. As a result poten- 
tial upgraded shouldn't be left stranded - if 
and when they decide to invest. 

In the case of both Rars&Pipes and 
its predecessor installation is a -ample mai- 
rer oi copying the appropriate tools from 
die support disk and installing (hem just 
like any other in your collection. 

flic only real difference is that the origi- 
nal Midi-out fool must lx- removed to make 
room for the first of the three Triple Play 
outputs. 

Fortunately [flue Ribbon have been 
careful while designing the new toois and 
as a resuli once installed the program uses 
1 riplePlay- 1 tool as a generic replacement 
for the default Midi-out on hoot-up. 

Thankfully this stretches to existing 
songs (hat have been written using the old 



Triple 
play spectacular 


the interface, As a result, set-up is a simple mailer of plugging 
in the interface, adding the hardware of your choice and copy- 
ing the appropriate driver fit loot to your sequencing software 
Obviously a proprietary combination of hardware and soft- 
ware is great lor designers and .suppliers hut not always good 
news for we punters However In this case I must admit to 
being pleasantly Surprised as Blue Ribbon have succeeded in 
prosiding tompaiibility with not only the new, hut also the 



e One Stop 

connection 


Regulars may remember Iasi month’s feature on yet 
another release from those industrious souls at Blue 
Ribbon, namely The One Stop Music Shop, 

Although fully explained in the last Issue, it's worth 
mentioning that when used In conjunction with Triple 
Play, the available Midi channels are boosted even 
further. 

When the hardware and associated software are 
added lo the overall Bsrsfi, Pipes environment, the avail- 
able Midi options expand even further with full access 
to the Emu-Proteus within One Stop in addition to the 
48 channels on offer from the Triple Play. 

And of course, if money is no object you could 
always add the talents of either the 16 or 12-bti SunRiw 
direci-to-dtsk samplers - both of which are supported 
by B4PPro2 as standard. 


I hi h.) nnc I formal. Fortunately the software autortia tic ally 
updates- the song to reflect the changes within the new environ- 
ment - again replacing Midi-out with TriplePkiy-J - thereby 
avoiding a tedious trek through the track list applying the new 

EOol.S. 

With the recent upgrade tu Superjam U, ir’s not a total .sur- 
prise to find Triple Play sup[*.m in the form of a special Triple 
Flay “paccess" which can be dropped into the Superjam acces- 
sories drawer anti subsequently loaded into die Superjam mvi- 
run mem when required. 

OUTPUT SWITCHER 

However due to Superjam s limited number of performers 
Blue Rihbon have side stepped the -ttklunne! option offered 
wnlun the Bars & Pipes range and opted for a Superjam replica 
of the Triple Play output switcher provided for other 
sequencers. 

Just like its Workbench counterpart, die Superjam accessory' 
simply toggles Iretween the three available Midi outs, Although 
n thoughtful, add-on Superjam support isn't exactly a strong 
selling point, which further confirms the units appeal to the 
professional rather than the amateur marker. 

Obviously with an asking price tiiat hovers ominously close 
to *170. the Triple Flay may Ire q little rich for the blood of most 
enthusiasts. However if you take your Midi seriously - or more 
to the point professionally - it's a relatively small price to pav 
for the added flexibility on offer. 

4 

For those lucky enough to lx heavily burdened with assorted 
ilnjir. machines and sound sources all sharing die same charnel 
preset*, it offers j beautifully si mpic 1 method of combining them 
all on the same channel while avoiding the inevitable dashing 
experienced on a standard 16-channel systems.

revolutionary Midi 
interface that could 
finally make the

o 


nee upon a time there was a magical kingdom, popu- 
lated by people who lived tor adventure, These peo- 
ple lived ordinary lives during the day hut at nighi 
they became wizards, fighters and monsters, trekking through 


uncharted territory, meeting Interesting people from all walks c»f 
life... and killing them 

These people I've mentioned aren't homicdal maniacs, they Ye 
fust ordinary Joes like you or 1. But they do use their modems to 
join others in computer-driven multi-user games, games that bite 
hack because the opponents arent simulated artificial intelli- 
gences, they're real thinking,, breathing humans. And like 
humans, if they don't like you you’d better watch your ass. 

Multi-user games used to )>e called multi-user dungeons, after 
the first such game which had that name. MUD was written by 
Richard Barrie and was launched by DT in the mid-SOs, 
Eventually, much like Micionet later, the service was run down 
and dtsappeastd 

The game then went over to the US where it went crazy under 
d>e name of British Legends, The creator of the program contin- 
ued development to the degree that now we have MTJD 2, hut 
more of that in a moment. 

In a time well before the word, let alone the concept, of 
cybeispaoe became a fashionable thing to talk alojL, real people 
lived an electronic life in addition to their real one 


Late lamented Micronet 


BT were the first to really do something about this in the UK. 
First MUD, then Eludes on the late lamented Mtcrunet, closely 
followed by many others, half as good and a third, as .short-lived. 

Then an allied .stream of games turned up - online ones, 
which although not necessarily featuring multiple user 1 ;, did 
enjoin users to use them online. 

Such games only have limited popularity in the UK - unless 
die call Ls local you can only really play for a very short time, 
unlike in die USA where local calls are free and unline-‘muEti-user 
games run riot over the Net, 

Now in tlx 90s we have a lot of more sophisticated games on 
computers, and multiuser games have hud to be more sophist i 
rated to keep up, 

One system in the UK which exemplifies this approach is 
Online, The system operates via die Tymnet and Dialplus net- 
works across Europe, enabling users all over the EC to dial it up 
via a local phone call. Costs are just £2 per hour network 
charges, plus Online s charges which are &2 per hour for non- 
memhers or £10 a month all-in if ytra subscribe to the system 

If you're in (he London area it's a local rail and you don't pay 
the network so that works out at about Wyp per hour instead of 
the k2 you'd pay if say you called from Europe or culler far-flung 
places in the UK. 

Fhe games on ibe Online system are Air Warrior, a multi-user 
flight combat simulator; Federation, □ multi-user adult apace fan- 
tasy: MUD 2, the sequel to the original MUD; and finally 
Internecine, a futuristic battling game run hy Email. This is just 

And there’s more... 


CIX has its own online game run via the Internet, based 
on the Discwofld novels by Terry Pratchett. Many other 
MUOs and MUGs are run on the Internet. 

For example Lee Bohan {at least I think that's his 
name, hohanf@cs.3stOHiac.uk is his Email address and 
he signs himself as Lee), told me in a recent Email mes- 
sage: “It you like multi player games, but are sick of the 
delay of the ones in the USA, there is now one here at 
Aston, called Magic Moo. 

"It can be accessed by telnet on dougaUston.ac.uk 
port 7777. and although not the busiest in the world, is 
fun." 

• For more details about Online, call them on 
081-553 61 14. 



tike the play-by-mai] RPG games but being 
played by Email it runs that much faster, 
h is is like a futuristic game show, much 
like Stephen King's The Running .Man, 
where die contestants fight each other in 
an arena using all manner of weapons. 

Although some of the games are text- 
based, most these days are graphic. Air 
Warrior is a graphic simulation of flying in 
an attack aircraft, and all the other player, 
are seen as other aircraft. 

.Although Federation is a text- based trad- 
ing game, originally written by Alan 
Lemon, it now has a graphic front end 
railed PedTerm, so it’s now more of a 
graphic role-player. 

Hie games, especially the graphic ones, 
arc specially designed to work despite the 
great distances involved. Air Warrior, for 
example, will work on a 1 200 baud 
modem upwards, and has been carefully 



Glorious 

MUD 


optimised Do make sure that the action never stops despite die dis- 
tance between you and the game. 

This works in much the .same way as games which operate in two- 
player wuHiiachme ajnfignratsnres over a serial null modem Jink. 

As well as all the games, the Online system also lias Forum, its 
own conference service ami Email system. The PC and Amiga are 
served as far as graphic remiiree programs and ways of playing the 
game are concerned but of ctmr.se you ran log on with any machine 
provided you want to use text-only game 1 : and .services.

A 


lot of attempts to tell you about Dual FlayikTds Hlih 
been cropping up in recent magazine articles and 
books on the subject ol Amos, and 1 Thought it was 
about time we covered ihb subject in this column. 


As far as the Amiga's display system is concerned, a dual 
play field is where two screens are visible at the same tune, 
overlaid one on the other, where one is clearly visible through 


the other. 

This is ia handy effect for what they call in the game review- 
ing business "parallax scrolling*, like in the game Shadow of 
the Beast, There Is an Amos demo which shows off thLs effect. 


called “Madness Week " by Syntex (get it From the Amos PD 
Library today 111 

For good parallax scrolling - contrary to what you might 
read in other mags - you need to observe certain restrictions 
and keep your mind on what you warn out of your scrolling 


screens. 

If what you are looking lor is high speed and pure hardware 
scrolling, unfortunately you have to ligurc out ways ol making 
dual playfidd work properly. 

This is awkward because one of the playfieids will always go 
haywire once you scroll the other one. jusi like some demos 
I've seen which supposedly show how it should be done. So 
this method is only recommended if you care to sit down and 
experiment with it for a few weeks... 

Following this reasoning to its logical conclusion, slower 
dual play field is better as long as you don't need a major I urn 


AMOS 


effect is very clean and smooth. The 
other way of doing it is depicted in the 
Sttubtazer done* also on the TOME disks. 
The beauty about that is thai it's all done 
wifh simple screen copy commands, and 
because SCREEN COPY is so fast, you 
can do other things and not have it all 
slow down as soon as you move a sprite. 

Bear in mind that you're probably 
going to compile it all anyway, so it'll go 
faster than it does when it's interpreted, 
ie Iseing run by Amos, and keep it sim- 
ple* If you're going to do parallax 
scrolling don't use a huge sprite, for 
example. 

Apart from parallax effects, you tan 
also do a number of other effects which 
require some form of transparency and 
two effects moving in sync, as shown in 
Listing I. 

That should give you something to 
write home about. Yes sir, dual play field 
mode is good for any time when you 




of speed, or if you scroll single pixels very slowly. 

The best way of doing this is to do an overlay from another 
screen using get and put block. The best parallax scrolling is 
where you are doing what we call “band parallax " where 
you're not overlaying. 

Moving bitmaps 

This is simply a case of setting your screen copies up for 
scrolling different hands on the screen, which is the simplest 
and fastest way to Jo it. You must keep the scrolling itself very 
simple, so whereas some demos only use hah the vertical 
height of the screen, they scroll the entire screen. 

The proper way to do it is only scroll tile areas of the screen 
which have the bitmaps in them. This way you're not wasting 
processor time scrolling bits which aren't actually part of the 
action. 

The best examples of this technique that I know of are to be 
found on die demo disk which comes with TOME -t The first 
good example is the Velcro Gruh game, where there are two 
bands of screen scrolling, although the effect is of parallax 
scrolling only - (he bottom two are actually moving, but the

want to have two .screens in motion on the screen at ihe 
same time, and obviously the best applications are going to 
be games and demos, 

but I can see an application in video titling with a little bit 
of thought and imagination . Employ a bit of text scrolling 
and you can flip text around in two pLanes at once. 
Experiment with the possibilities,, but always remember to 
keep it simple if you want to keep it smooth.

ostScnpi is a pleasure that many don't get 3 chance to 
experience because qf the expense of hi lying the neces- 
sary hardware The way around this is to use a software 
interpreter. One .such program is the freely dhlribufahle Post. 

Hie advantage d using a program tike Post is you can take a 
PostScript file and check for errors shat may cause the (lie ro fail. 
These errors can prove expensive, especially when dealing w ith 
print .shops. 

IF you hand them a PostScript tile that has ro be debugged, you 
are eicJn.T going to have to pay id the time it takes them ro do that, 
or take lL home and do it yourself, 

Essentially, a PostScript file is an Ascii file which, if you like, can 
be loaded into a text editor, from where you will suddenly realise 
that debugging a file in litis manner is something best left unci I you 
become an expert. 

Luckily, there is another way of reducing rite risk of failure, in 
order to make sure there are no unexpected problems when the 
code from that file Is interpreted, you can take a PostScript: fiJc From 
;i program like ProPage and am it through Post 

A common problem, for example, is text dial is pan of a graphic 
- a caption perhaps - and at prim time the font for that text isn't 
available. Another one is with graphics that you have loaded from 
your storage device, but the output device at the print shop can't 
find the graphics because it doesn't have access to your storage 
device. After creating a document in your DTP program you would

save the pages as PostScript files. These can 
become Surge. Sizes of a megabyte are not

in the file, so PostScript Tiles need to be 
saved to hand disk. 

Once .saved, you can check for errors 
Troubles like files not being found and 
problem Encapsulated PostScript files [EPS) 
can be highlighted by Post. 

Although with experience some prob- 
lems can be spoiled by glancing at the 
PostScript file, often glitches are hidden. 
EPS fifes, For example, can be a constant 
source of problems, especially when they 
originate from many different sources. 

With Post it is possible to “run" your file 
and watch for where it fails. The program 
interprets and executes each command, 
eventually displaying a representation of the 
page. You need to pay close attention 
because once the file foils the page will lx-

jn a nutshell, Posl enables you lo output PostScript files to 
non-PostScript printers, H does this by taking She place of the 
PostScript interpreter inside a PostScript output device. 

instead of a page being imaged in the printer’s memory, ft is 
created as a bitmap in your Amiga's memory,, which can then 
be printed via Preferences as normal. 

The great advantage of Ihis is that it enables those who 
canl afford a PostScript printers to still lake advantage of the 
enhanced oplions available to PostScript. 

Allhough the author of Posl, Adrian Aylwad, stopped devel- 
oping it at vl .7, enthusiast Robert Poole has taken up the chal- 
lenge and has recently released an enhancement, version
