Hi, 

Two guesses as to what V m going to review (his 
month, You'll probably got it in one..,.. I he new 

Amiga CD32 

July 1 6th at the Science Museum in London, 
Commodore Launched 'CD32 to a very excited 
audiedte; and what a launch it was! We all 
expected, to see a very special! Amiga but no one 
(except Commodore) could imagine just how 
special 

In fact, only in June of this year did Sega them- 
selves quote 11 we could bring a 32 - bit console 
out tomorrow ir ,but the problem is the price and I 
don't think that problem will be solved this year 
or next year” Well Commodore have definately 
knocked that theory on die head with a retail 
price of 099.99, 

I won't go on about all the oilier breakthroughs 
this console hus made as l know the magazines 
are lull of reviews giving all that teekie stuff etc, 
but 1 really must say something about the stag- 
gering amount of software that's due for release. 
Somewhere between >0 and 1 00 titles will be 
available by Christmas and more importantly all 
the great software houses are now developing 
products, including Psygnosis, Ocean, Gremlin 
and many many more. 

As if all this wasn't enough there's still more to 
come from this incredible box of tricks.., Full 
Med Lon Video By the inclusion of a neat little 
gadget called an Mpeg Module you'll soon be 
able to watch films on CO and. that really does 
mean some really special products arc just 
around dip comer. 1 can't wail to sec and hear all 
my favourite bands on (’13 and the Amiga CD is 
just waiting to play them. 

Anyway I'm sure you're just as convinced as I 
am that this product from Commodore really is 
just a bit special and certainly changes the future 
for things to come the likes we have never seen 
before. Why don't you drop me a Sine and id! me 
what you think, in feet how about some sugges- 
tions as to what you'd like to do with the new 
Amiga and I'll get Indi to give one away for the 
best letter. 

See you next month. 

Cheers

DMA ENSURES HIGHEST 
PRACTICE 

As with most industries, the UK's 
personal computer industry has its share 
of cowboys operating in the mail nrek'F 
sector and at ihe receiving end a line up 
of despairing consumers who ha ve suffered 
at their hands, 

A personal computer is a sophisticated 
and expensive item and provided ihe pur- 
chaser is dealing with a reputable and 
accredited supplier, buying a computer 
by mail order can be a perfectly sale and 
cost effective exercise, The Direct 
Marketing Association (DMA) was set 
up in April 92 to set and maintain high 
standards for the sake of die industry and 
society at large, and to ensure dial we can 
continue to regulate our own activities on 
the basis of 

proper pnitessional responsibil ii>'- 
Membership of the DMA is not 
conferred lightly - it is a privilege which 
entails respond hi lilies,, to the consumer 
as well as to the industry, The foundation 
for this must he good practice, DMA 
members are required lo -abide by I he 
highest standards as laid down in the 
DMA's code, enforced on members bv 
fhe Authority of the DMA a separate 
body w ith an independent Chairman, and 
which is an assurance of vigorous self - 
regulation and professional responsibility 
DMA members also agree, ns a condition 
of membership, to abide by The British 
Code of Advertising Practice and I he 
Tlrixisli Code of Sales Promotion 
Practice: to apply the Mailing Preference 
Service tile when appropriate: and to 
subscribe to the Advertising Standard s 
Board of Finance iANtiOl-) and to I he 
Mailing Standard* 1 .evy as applicable. 
The DMA symbol can only be used by 
members, Prink-ii on stationary, advertising 
and other promotional material it demon- 
strates that these companies conform to 
the Association's high standards and are 
subject to the DMA's Code of Practice, 
thus enhancing she companies credibility 
with customers, suppliers and of greatest 
importance, the 
consumer., 

Since the symbol was introduced Iasi 
June, it has become synonymous with 
quality , professionalism and and respon- 
sibility. While it cannot be shown m an} 
way which will become a sign of best 
industry practice and of strict adherence 
to DMA codes of conduct, The symbol 
represents authority for members and 
reassurance for consumers. It lias been a 
high valued mark of confidence signifying 
to the consumer the truly professional 
edge of the industry.

T he DL1150 Colour and DU250 
are two smart masterpieces 
from Fujitsu - the second largest 
computer manufacturer in the 
world. Thanks to a unique design, 
these printers will save you a lot 
of valuable desk space. 

The DL1150 is the smaller model 
and prints in colour on a 
A3/portrait or A4/landscape If you 
need larger printouts, the DL1250 
is the perfect choice - it prints on 
A 2 format. 

The DL1250 is monochrome hut 
can easily be upgraded to a colour 
printer by use of an optional 
colour kit 

The 24-pin dot matrix technology 
offers high resolution. Many 


resident fonts provide a multitude 
of printout options. You can easily 
connect your computer with our 
printers, thanks to Fujitsu's unique 
D 1,-menu. Drivers are available, 
both for Windows and Amiga.

Games makers agree sex rules 


EUROPE'S computer and video games makers have agreed on 
sell regulation aimed at addressing pub <c worries about sexual 
and violent scenes contained in some software. 

Members of ELSPA (European Leisure Software Publishers 1 
Association) will consult the Video Standards Council to ensure 
games do not cause offence. 

The move is aimed at showing that the games industry has 
listened to public and media concerns and is willing to put its 
house in? order wilhout stncl laws being forced upon st 

The VSC was lomned as a video watchdog in 1 969 to admin- 
ister the industry's own standards in a bid to prevent further 
legislation. 

With new technology, an increasing number of games use 


film footage or realistic graphics, meaning that developers need 
to ce familiar with video laws. 

The regulation will mean that software houses wifi send some 
games to the British Board of Film Censors for video-type age 
ratings which will then be shown gn the packaging. 

An ELSPA spokesman said: 'The use in any game of cine- 
matic scenes of a Sexual or violent nature could result in Ihe 
game being legally required to be classified. 

"H is important lhat the games industry recognises this, so as 
not to risk either any breach of the law or the current exempt sta- 
tus of most games." 

A detailed plan specific to- Ihe conouier and video games 
indusiry will be in place by early next year

as commonly-used musical shorthand. 

The beginnings of musical form and composition

included. 

According to its developers, the software makes any instrument fun to learn 
and uses synthesized speech and click-to-play examples. 

Price: $59.95 from American Software and Hardware Distributors (01 Q 1 217 2CI50J

Planning for the future 

TOP software and hardware developers from around Ihe world are to moel in London 
soon to discuss She issues Ihai wiEI shape and create games of tomorrow. 

Speakers will cover everything tram the emerging compact disc technology to links 
with Hollywood hits. The possibility of interactive movies will be examined, and pro- 
grammers will predict Ihe type of games that could have big impact tn years to come. 

Among me companies represented will be Psygnosis, IBM, Philips and 3DG. the

news 


A llhough there hasn't been a lot 
of Amiga activity on the game 
design front here in the US, one 
company has been busily updating one of 
the best flight sims around to make it 


even better. 



Jaegjer Software's Fighter Duel Pro 2.0 
is packed with new features, answering 
nearly every complaint and reques? 
lodged about the earlier version. 

If vou're not familiar with Fighter 
Duel's predecessors, you should be- The 
original program, Fighter Uriel; Corsair 
vs Zero, was a one-on-one air combat 
tame where you battled a single oppo- 
nent (computer-con trolled or via serial, 
connection). 

It was fairly simple, but had realistic 
flight models and provided an amazing 
24 to 28 frame s-per- second screen 
updates in hi-res interlaced mode, even 
on 7MHz Amigas. 

Its successor, Fighter Duel Pro, added 
more aeroplanes and some truly innova- 
tive features, such as the ability to book a 
second Amiga up to use to display the 

view behind your plane! 

The program's latest incarnation adds 
nine of the "super planes" from the last 
months o£ World War 11, including the 
Mcssenchmitt 262 jet, the rocket-powered 
Me- 1 63 gurnet, the la- 152 Ian enhanced 
Fncke-Wulf 190), the Japanese Ki-84, the

without rebooting; and a Chat mnde Has 
been added so you car taunt your nppo- 
i%ents in ti’iulH-'player mode. 

The multi-player mode is where 
FDPro really shines. You can fly with up

ers, two in each location. You hook a sec- 
ond Amiga to yours and a friend flies as 
your wingman, and your opponent does 
the same thing.

■ COMMENT 


T he joint issue of pornography and violence in 
computer software, for long a subject on which 
AC has campaigned (see this year's May issue 
for our latest article on the subject) has finally come lo 
prominence to the extent that the games industry has been 
forced to self-iegulat*. 

In a move which seems aimed at assuaging sears 
prompted bv several recent TV programmes, the members 
of the European Leisure Software Publishers Association 
(Elspa), including, most of the big UK and European 
games houses, have adopted the guidelines laid down by 
the Video Standards Council (V$C) on what should and 
should rtc . >t be included in games. 

the move will have little impact on most floppy-based 
games, with the possible exception of those which make 
use of digitised images or particularly gruesome graphics 
(Elvira springs to mind), but the fledgling CLt games 
industry wilt have to watch very carefully its p's and q's 
over the six-month trial period until new guidelines are 
formulated at the beginning of next year. 

Games released on the capacious CD medium will no 
doubt contain more graphics than was previously possi- 
ble, and any which utilise Mpeg technology to bring real- 
life, full-motion video (FMV) to games will automatically 
be subiect to classification, as director James Ferman or the 
British Board of Film Classification (BBFO revealed to AL 

VOLUNTARILY 

Broadly speaking Elspa members hav# voluntary 
token on bctfld a set erf rough rules which, if followed, 
should ensure that no game will fell foul of the Video 
Recordings Act of 1984 . As the loophole in this law 
allowed any video game lo escape classification except 
where it contained acts of gross indecency., it 1 ms had little 
bearing on the games industry till now, but with the 
advent of FMV the situation is set to change. 

[f, for example, a CD game using digitised martial arts 

sequeiias and special effects shots of badly injured oppo- 
nents, bloody fights, an U so on was released tomorrow, 
the BBFC would drag it in and most probably slap an IS 
certificate on it as a video product rather than a video 
game. 

Industry figures Have expressed doubt as to whether 
such games will be available while the installed user base 
of Mpeg owners is very small, but the fact that the) are 
now possible and public concern is growing U reason 
enough to attempt sell-regulation. 

Thas action worked well for the video industry wher^ in 
1999 r ihe Video Standards Council was formed at the 
insistence of a government which was concerned but anx- 
ious to avoid further legislation, *ind it is to be hoped that 
it will work now. 

Where the system might mil down is in the duplication 



Foom* of the software pom merdumls who know just how 
far they lph go and how much money drey can make. 

Unaffiliated to Elspa and the mainstream industry, these 
cowboys are responsible for many of the underground 
pornographic CD-ROM discs presently available on the PC, 
and even for much of the pornographic material available 
on floppies and bulletin boards. 

police have enjoyed a measure of success recently in con- 
trolling the pom merchanls, but the danger that these peo- 
ple will tar the whole industry with the same brush Jnd 
drag us all into compulsory universal classification is still 

very real. 

H Elspa manage to convince the Home Office that self' 
regulation works, and a workable set of sensible guidelines 
are brought, into force next year r we should thankfully 
avoid she long and sometimes rather arbitrary arm of the 

law\ 

However,, should; CD-based games take off in a big way, 
a trend which many predict, and foreign companies with 
no allegiance to Elspa or European regulations begin to 
stretch the line between what is and i^ not acceptable,, our 
somnolent MFs will eventually have to react to public pres- 
sure. 

ho long as enough parents voice their concern, and 
enough sensaSionalistic headlines can be guaranteed, the 
tabloids and television stations are sure to return to this 
Issue over and over again. 

Without care and active monitoring on the part ot the 


As the games industry 
moves toward self- 
regulation, is the prospect 
of clumsy government 
legislation now less 
immediate? 

industry, the days when un<? could w.ilk into a software 
store and buy a same without the use of a driver's licence 
or other proof of age could soon he over. 

No-ore disputes that this ivould be a blow to the 
industry and an unwelcome development, but everything 
now depends on the good sense and propriety of the 
games houses themselves. 

For the next six to 18 months the activities of then? com- 
panies and the products they release will be well and truly 
under the microscope of the media as well as the myopic 
gjze of the House of Commons, 

The big question is whether or not we can all act to 
ensure that reports of nothing other than a vibrant, ^nlliu- 
siastic, fun Industry are the result tif all the scrutiny. If not 
you can kiss goodbye hi your grimes -buying freedom.

C aligari is a 3D solid model k j r capfr 
bit? of producing some stunning 
results The program has two fun- 
damental aspects: Object Design and 
Scene Design. 

Models arc built from simple prede- 
fined objects, known as primitives, which 
are glued together to make mum? complex 
objects. By drawing ZD shapes and tilling 
Caligari to process them., the user Is able 
to create his/ her own primitives. I wo dif- 
ferent algorithms can be used - the first 
rotates a user polygon around an axis 
while the second extrudes the shape. 

Once an object has been completed as a 
wireframe, colour attributes can be added 
tu its components and the mode! test- 
rendered. 

Finished objects are loaded into the 
scene designer where lighting effects are 
added and the composition process 
begins. Once that is complete, the picture 
can be saved as an IFF hle. 

Loxid up tiie program and we'll go on a 
more detailed tour. Click on the Object 
Design button and a window will open 
with a grid drawn in perspective, and a

menu strip, Click on the button labelled 
Prim, to provide a pictorial list of IN 
graphic primitives. These are sets of sim- 
ple building blocks that can be resided, 
manoeuvred and glued together to pro- 
duce more complex objects. There are also 
four buttons on this control panel labelled 
Load. Auto Load, Auto-Exit and Done. 

When Autoload is activated, graphic 
primitives will be loaded automatically 
without having to click on the Load but- 


ton each time a shape is selected. 

This is a handy time-saving device that 
you may like to use when you become 
more familiar with the package- The Done 
button returns you to the main control 
panel, while AutoEx.it is another labour- 
saving feature, ll will return you to the 
main control panel as soon as a primitive 
has been loaded. 

jn order to get a feel for object manipu- 
lation, we will take you through a few 


examples, First of all, load the cone primi- 
tive and the cylinder next to it. Both 
image* are drawn on the same point so 
that the cone appears to be inside the 
cylinder. 

We need tell the program which object 
we with to manipulate, so click on the 
pick button followed by the wireframe 
drawing of the cylinder.

w ih the exception of Perspective an? 2D 
*’ biects can only be moved in a maxi- 
auur of two planes. Having experimented 
* r h moving primitives, we are now 
to put our practice to use by joining 
the cone to one end of the cylinder. 

Working in the Side view, highlight the 


trams button. Ensure that both X and Y 
are also highlighted then click on Pick fol- 
lowed the tine drawing of the cone. Now 
place it on top of the cone. To aid accu- 
racy. you might like lo use she Zoom tunc- 
tion which is controlled with the slider. 

Because the side view is only a 2D rep- 
resenta tion of the objects* we need to 
check that they are aligned in the third 
dimension by selection she front view. Fhe 
chances are that you will need to align the 
cone and cylinder in this view to o. Once 
both objects are correctly aligned,, return 
to ihe Perspective view then click on 
Toots. 

As we are going to join our objects, 
click on Glue then on the cylinder so lhat 
both It and the cone are drawn in white- 
They should now be joined and it should 
be possible to move them as a single 
object. Notice how Callgari uses a bonding 
bo* to reprint the object while it is being 
moved. This allows a real-time response 
to be maintained while retaining a sense 


of the object size and orientation. 

Any object can be re-sized using the 
Scale mode. To simply enlarge or reduce 
an object,, click the Scale button and 
ensure that X, Y and Z are ail highlighted, 
then drag the object lo the size that you 
require. 

by carefully combining the direction 
buttons, objects can be made fatter, thin- 
ner, taller or shorten As an experiment,, 
scale our object with X and Y activated r 
then with just If you make a mess Df 
things, use the Undo function to restore 
the drawing. 

It is also possible to rotate any object by 
clicking on she Rot button and dragging 
the mouse with the left button held down. 
As with the transport object mode, the 
direction of movement is controlled with 
the X, Y and Z bu ttons. 

Up until now, we have only viewed our 
example object as a wireframe model, so

Mathematics is an area of education that often bores even the 
must entliusUistic pupil. However things don't have to be like 
this, as the 10 out of 10 Maths Number Demo from Triple R 
proves. 

Each of the six games is tiled closely to the National 
Curriculum and incorporate tests appropriate to given 
^ftainment Targets, 

To see what each module covers,, click on the Player 
Information box then move ihe mouse pointer 
over ihe section numbers. When the pointer is 
positioned over a number an interpretation of 
it will appear at ihe bottom of hie screen. 

The demo has been set up with an example 
u*e r that we have called Test. When a new 
player is added, an attainment record is pro- 
duced 

Attainment Earget (just as with our Test 
player), 

After playing a game, the box for the level 
played will change colour according to the 
score achieved. A score of Jess than 50 per cent 


Maths demo 

results in a red box, over 50 a yellow one, with 100 per cent being 
rewarded with a green box. If a player achieves ten green boxes 
for a game, they are awarded the status of Genius which is 
denoted by a blue box. 

Names are added by selecting the New C T lavfr option., and 
deleted using Remove Player. There is plenty of room on the 
unarchived disk for no less than 64 players so the chance are 
that you won't need the Delete option anyway. 

When a game is played for fhe first time, 
the level one questions will be used which 
are easy. Once this has been successfully 
completed, a player may opt to play the same 
level again or to move on to the next one, 
which will be slightly more taxing. 

Each game has a high score table which 
records the date, grade, percentage and over- 
all score plus, of course, the player's name. 

In the full vers ion, these details are written 
to thy di.sk to create an on-guing challenge 
but in our demo version they are Lost when 
you return to the main menu.

on the Render button. After a short delay, 
it will be drawn as a solid model. 

To invoke the render menu-slrip r dou- 
ble click the right mouse button. As you 
wiki see there are options to save the 
Image as an IFF picture, and to prim it 
out. The key function, however, is the abil- 
ity to alter the object's colour attributes. 

Clicking on the Color button lakes you 
tu the heart of the rendering facilities. Just 
above the slider controls, there is an out- 
line of a box which represents the screen 
colour. 

As this colour is dull, let's change it by 
clicking on the- box and moving the slid- 
ers- Unlike some packages, these do not 
allow RGB control and instead allow you 
to change Hue, Saturation and Value 
Space. Hue is fust another word for 
colour^ saturation alters the strength of 
colour, while value space changes its 
intensity . 

The colour of the example object can be 
changed in two ways. The first is to 
change fhe colour number, so that the 
object is shaded using a different logical

colour, while the second is to alter the 
colour itself. 

To change a colour range, click on a 
colour and use the sliders. Any objects 
rendered with the selected range will he 
changed too. 

It is also possible to change the individ- 
ual colours of the component parts of an 
object. To do this, dick on the Pick button 
followed by the down arrow. 

One of the component parts will be 
highlighted automatically r though another 
piece may be s&lected by clicking on it 
within the pick environment Having 
made a selection, return to the Colour 
menu and click on a new colour range fol- 
lowed by the Set To button, the change is 
not immediately apparent so return to the 
Pick menu and select the up arroiv 


to see it. 

Strictly speaking., th i s method of select- 
ing component parts is knnwn as hierar- 
chical access. With our simple example, it 
is not possible to examine the full poten- 
tial of the technique so it is time to take a 
look at an object created by Octree, the 


people behind the program. Ktfum to the 
main menu and click on the Erase button 
to get rid of the cone and cylinder exam- 
ple then click on Load. There are seven 
example objects that you might like tn 
examine but for now just load up the one 
called Robot. 

Just as a matter of interest, this model 
only took around SO minutes to 
design because tt went through a 
conceptual stage. In other words,, the 
designer decided it should have arms, 
legs,' head and so on, hut was not too con- 
cerned about what they actually looked 

like. 

Clearly, there is a substantial benefit to 
using this strategy so if is worth bearing in 
mind when you want to create an object in 

a hurry. 

Being a construction, the wireframe 
components of the robot can be accessed 
in isolation. Use the Pick feature of the 
main menu to select one of the robots 
arms then dick on Rot St should now be 
possible to swing the entire arm back- 
wards and forwards. 

By using the Pick facility again, the 
forearm can be selected and related 
around the Z axis in the same way. 

When creating objects, the predefined 
primitives will not always meet 
vour requirements. However if is possible 
to create your own using the 
Extruder tool. For the next example, we 
are going to play around with extruded 
polygons then create a sailing boat of our 
own. 

Click on the Tools button followed by 
Extruder. Moving the cross-hair cursor 
and clicking leaves a line on the screen. Si 
the Snap Grid option has been selected, 
these wiil be drawn to the closest grid 
intersection. 

Draw a senes of lines, using a combi- 
nation of Grid Snap and freehand draw- 

ing, to get a ft ‘ el for lhe two

button. A point worth noting is that the

Undo function is nested, making it possi- 
ble to repeatedly delete lines in the order 
in which they were drawn. Having 
drawn a polygon, it may be used in a con- 
sfrructscm by clicking on the button 
Labelled Flat. The polygon will then be 
drawn in the main object environment, 
parallel to the grid, and can be manipu- 
lated in the same way as any other 
primitive. 

Flat objects are quite limited, and it is 
more usual to generate ones created with 
cither the Extrude or Lathe options which 
have more visual impact. 

If you just experimented with the Flat 
option, go back into the Extruder and 
draw another polygon. Click on extrude

and the shape? will be transformed into a 

3D object 

The final way to genera to an object is tv 
use the Laths option. Draw another poly- 
gon, then select la lhe which will effec- 
tively spin your polygon around a 
user- 1 defined axis. 1 his axis may be 
defined as an existing line (edge) of lhe 
polygon or as a completely separate line 
The best way to see (he difference is to 
play around with the two options. 

With lhe lathe, it is easy to create 
doughnut-like rings which come in handy 
as tyres, though their use is only limited 
bv your imagination. 

^ To make one, draw a circle on one side 
of the screen, define a rotation axis well 
a wav trmn it then dick on Go. When it 
comes to rendering doughnuts, be 
prepared to wait a long time as they 
have a large number of faces. 

Now we have shown you enough 
to tackle a sailing boat There is a 
predefined one on the disk which 
you might like to load up so that 
you car see what we are aiming at. 
It is composed of just six objects: A 
hull, deck, mash boom and two 
sails. 

The: obvious starting point is the 
hut!, so erase the image and start 
up the extruder tool. 

Draw an outline of a hull^ ay U 
would be seen from the side, then 
click on Lathe. Using the Pick Edge 
as Axis button, select the tnp line 
(deck) as the rotation axis then click 
on Settings. 

From this menu the number ot 
segments can be changed as can the 
number of degrees that the polygon is to 
he rotated through. 

We only need to rotate our hull outline

b— it will make things easier, as will 
~ ikmg the top line of the hull parallel lo 
th# grid. 

Ha.\ ing dime that, go into side view' 
and dick on the Copy tool. It will 
s be immediately apparent that a 
: j plicate object has been made 
because it will occupy exactly the same 
co-ordinates. 

iNe will use the copy of the hull as the 
b a sis of ihe sailboat s deck. Rotate it 
tough 180 degrees, so that it is 
r fumed, then position it on top of the 
hull L:-e the Trans facility and checking 
how it looks viewed from ihe side and 
front, 

Select Scale w'ith only the Z axis 
ected and squa&h the top so that it 
looks triore like a deck. The next step is to 
.heck its position, correcting it as neees- 
fttry, before gluing -the two pieces 
together 

To make to mast, we can load the 

■ li.nd.tr primitive and change its shape to 


suit our needs. Make it: taller by scaling it 
in just the Z axis and reduce its diameter 
with only the X and Y axes enabled. The 
easiest way to position it on the boat in ht 
use the top view. 

We could create the boom in exactly 
the same way hut it is quicker to make a 
copy of the mast and alter that. 

Once the boom has been glued to the 
mast so that it lies to the stern of the 
yacht, we only need two sails to complete 
the modd . 

Both of these can be designed using the 
Extruder tool and turned into i lai objects. 
When gluing them to the model, be 
sore to check that they are correctly 
aligned by using the side, front 
and top views. Having completed the 
sailboat and adjusted the colour scheme, 


save it to disk before moving on to the 
Scene editor 

Manipulation of objects ;n the Scene 
Editor is essentially the same as in the 
Object Editor. The difference is that 
Objects cannot be created in the Scene 
Editor and lights cannot be added in the 
Object editor. 

Think of Cabgari as a film studio and 
you will realise that it does not make 
sense to add lighting effects to props in 
the workshop or to build props on the 
film set 

Objects are only moved from the work- 
shop to the set when they are complete 
Which is why Caligari objects need to be 
hived when moving from the design envi- 
ronment to the Scene Editor. 

Objects that have been loaded into the 


Scene Editor can only be manipulated 
using two tools: Copy and Lights. 
The first of these duplicates models, 
in the same way as the Object 
Editor, while Lights allows any 
number of light sources to be defined in 
30 spate. 

To tell Caligarl that we want to define 
a new light we have to dick on the Add 
Light button then enter some values for 
the Intensity, SoftSize ami the three axis 
that Indicate the position of the light 
source. 

Each of the values takes the form of up 
to four digits, followed by the decimal 
point, then three digits. Once these 
fields have been changed, click 
on the Load Settings to Indicate 
that you have finished entering the 
parameters, Once the lights have been 
added the final step is to render the end re 
scene and save it to disk as an IFF file. 
Have fun!

F117A Stealth Fighter 

I hi?, month sees the launch of a new flight simulator from Mieropmse in the form of 
F117A Stealth t ighter. Awgi? Computing has been giver an exclusive demo of this fabu- 
lous game which contains a mission that can be found nowhere else, not even in the full 
version. 

Enemy forces are gathering and it looks like a major offensive is about to be launched 
against you. The government have requested that Stealth missions be flown to destroy 
key targets, 

Your mission is to take off from Rhein- Main and obliterate the primary target of the 
bridge at E iberec Having done that, the secondary target is a Mobile SAM at Budejovice 
Vi hich you should destroy before flying to Gutersloh and landing. 

To take off, press the + key until the* thrust reaches the maximum of I0& coast along 
the runway and pull up at the end, Press b to raise the landing gear and you're airborne 

As you would expect, the Stealth Fighter is a complex beast and is packed with an 
equally complicated cockpit- Learning all the keyteMrd controls may take some time but 
si is definitely worth persevering,

to this one, click on the RealName field and enter the following 

text 

e;itpp 

WcrfkdLr Specifies- the default directory that the loot will use. 
For example if you were setting up a wordprocessor, you could 
get it to use a directory called Letters every time the ivondproces- 
sor was run. 

The stack is. an area of memory used by the Amur's operating 
system, Skime applications require this to be changed to a hfj>L'r 
value before being run. Tool Manager is capable of handling this 
/unction and will set the stack size automatically, according to 
the value in this field. 

Hotkey definitions are entered in the next field- As there is no 
definition for this tool we will define one as the key combination 
Right Amiga and S by entering the following text: 

rcDMind a 

Now, whenever we want to look at a file, we can just press the 
Right Amiga key and S at the same time. A full list of keys that 
can be used in hotkey definitions has been included in the docu- 
mentation. 

There are burtons to indicate whether Fool Manager should 
add the application in the Tool Menu. Workbench screen and to 
disable argument passing for programs that do nol require any, 
leonType allows the displayed icon to be either an icon, or as 
m IFF brush that has been created using an art program such as 
Deluxe Paint. 

Hither way. Toot Manager needs to know where the appropri- 
ate icon file is to be found on the disk, which is precisely what 
that IcorFile field is for. The final two fields are labelled X Co- 
ord and Y Cu-ord and control the screen location of the applica- 
tions icon. 

Having made some changes we need to clack the OK button to 
return to the list of available took then close this window by 
selecting the close gadget. Now when you dick on the Show Text 
icon, MuchfvforePF will open a window so that you can select a 
file to vlew E . 

Finally, there is an easier way to set up an program as a man- 
aged tool All that is required is to drag the application icon and 
drop it on the Tool Manager icon. This will result in the essential 
fields befog defined which makes editing them a doddle.

- utility allows programs to be called torn the menu bar or by 
-king special icons that are a inched to the Workbench Screen, 
he advantage of Launching a program by either of these meth- 
ds is that there is no need to clutter the screen with lots of open 
w indows, 

Tool Manager makes extensive use of Workbench 2 features 
sr.J allows programs to be run via commodity hotkeys. When 
-he utility k launched, by double clicking on its icon a number of 
• ols dre added to the Tools menu and a special program icon is 
idid to the Workbench screen. 

Because the Cover Disk has two large windows, this icon will 
be oNcured so reduce the* sure of the windows to find it. Notice 
Ant four more application icons have also attached themselves to 
the screen . 

Hrese have been defined in the program's con fig file and we 
1 we left them available for readers who decide to install Tool 
Manager on their hard drives. 

As thev stand, they cannot be used from the Cover Disk 
because they attempt to load programs that are found on the 
: -k-s supplied with your machine. Obviously, it would have 
-ren a waeto of space to put programs such as Icon Edit on our 
disk too. 

Let's take a look at how to edit thew tools. Double dick on the 
loot Manager icon or press the Right Amiga and Help keys 
simultaneously. 

This results is a window being opened that displays all of the 
uj rent! 1 a liable tools. Select the Show Text tool by clicking on 

entry, then click the Edit button. A second window will open 
showing some details about the tool. 

The first field tells Tool Manager which environment the loot 
can be launched from. This can be set to the ttsuals of CLI and 
Workbench but also allows a dummv tool to he defined which 

*«r 

reives to operate entries in the Workbench menu. 

Alias ih used to define the text to he displayed with the appli- 
! Hons icon, in this case it is Show Text. The real name of the tool 
■md its path are entered in the next field. 

5he?ie two entries do not have to he the same and it is often 
more useful to define the alias so that the purpose of the Cool i*. 
instantly recognisable. 

As we have not Included the program More on tJic Cover Disk, 
we could change the tool to one that is. The tool that we use tu 
display text files is called MMPPfMuch More Poiver Packer) and 
it found in the C directory of the Cover Disk. To change the fool

complement of filing systems from the 
standard Ordinary Filing System fOPS) 
and Fast Filing system to the mure 
obsett re unes. 

By default, the program uses a best 
guess by examining the device and select- 
ing the closest filing system. 

When working with floppies, it is a 
good idea to make a copy of the damaged 
disk and try to repair the copy rather than 
the original. 

If you have a damaged floppy, insert it 
in a drive then select it from the Device 
For Scan window. There are two ways to 
restore files, Recover- by-Gcpy and Fix-i re- 
place. 

The former will copy recovered files 
from the damaged device to a second, 
user specified device. Fix-in- Plate, on the 
other hand, attempts to fix files hi situ. 

Salvage restores all files that it liifo-i, 
using recovcr-by-copy. Undelete is essen- 
tially the same as Salvage but allows (he 
user to interactively select files to be 
restored. 

1 1 is easy to accidentally erase files 
that you want, particularly when wild- 
cards are used in conjunction with the 
AmigaDOS Delete command. Assuming 
that you have rot saved anything to the 
disk, it should be possible to recover the 
lost fU^fs), 

Validate mode is used to fix disks 
that are not severely damaged, while 
the Repair option performs a similar 
task but is more powerful. Finally, 
there is an Un format mode which 
is not quite as powerful as you might 
expect. 

The reason is that it can only 

Jr 

recover a disk that has been formatted 
using the Quick option, SO if you 3 re 
in the habit of formatting disks 
in this way, you may bo able to 
recover files from an accidentally 
formatted disk.

CineMorph Junior 
WB1.3 fix 

We gave away Cine Morph Junk* with the August issue and despite much brain wrack- 
ing, we could not find any way to make it run on Workbench U machines. However, 
one of out readers, John Cook from Portsmouth, has found ate to make it compatible. 

On Ce [he program has been de-archived onto its own disk, the asl library must be 
deleted to make CineMorph Junior run. In order to do this, boot from your Workbench 
disk, open a shell window then enter the following line; 

ntl«U EiiirBprphjrtLflw/ttt.flfcrirj 

f lavine done that, insert the CineMorphJr disk in DFC:, reboot and you should find 
that the program now runs- Thanks for phoning up with the solution John, we are 

eKtiwty grateful- 



ABackup 

Author: Denis Gounelle 

Making a backup of J hard drive would 
bf a tedious affair if it w«re not for handy 
udlitLef. like ABackup, It is very simple to 


use and allows programs to 
be compressed using the built-in 
routines or with your favourite memory 
masher. 

Having selected the Backup function, 
the next thing to tell ABackup is 
which partition (or directory) of your 
drive to work with. 1 his information can

or by clicking on one of the displayed par-

found in the partition, allowing 
you to indicate which ones arc to be 
backed, up- 

There are options to include (or 
exclude) files by name, cfate, or according 
to the protection bits. All files can be 
included Ln one go and it also possible to 
reverse the selection so that the high- 
lighted ones lire unhighlighted and visa

To include sub-directories, the backup 
may be made recursive, and a particularly 
useful function is the ability to estimate 
the number ni floppies and tiTm.' required 
for the operation.

The Amiga Lomputmg uweruisk is 
designed to be as simple to use as 
possible. Follow these instructions 
and you'll be up and running in no 


'•rjden may have difficulties 
i»*i ) our CoverDisk, so we have 
m tided this page to help you out. 

- f»v we explain how to copy 
from one disk to another, how 
py the entire CoverDisk and 
10 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. 


COVERDISK 



How to make a backup 


T: copy- the entire CowDisI^ bad up your Workbench 
$ 1 then either dick once on the CoverDisk icon and 
j * «t DuplicatE, or select Copy from the Workbench 
* t u or open CLI/Shell and type: 

DISRUPT FIH BFOi TD 3F0f 

en prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source disk) in 
.jnd be ready to reptace Ft with your blank disk (the 
- stination disk). Follow the Amiga's on-screen prompts 
1 " the disk copy is completed. Now put the original 
■ ■ i> m a safe plate and use your backup. 


H^rhbfnrh Sttttfi 



Copying individual files 


' J might at some point want to copy a single program 
m a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or 
« your hard drive. 

to do this you'll need the COPY command. As most 
=. erDis-k programs are slashed away in their own direc- 
tohes, the quickest way to copy a program is to copy the 
“hole directory at once. Use tlie command: 

COP Y tils rector jfl T3 JILL 

“here {directory} rs the futl pathname of the directory 
■ hj wish to copy, and {newdisk} is the name ol the disk 
md director into which it will be copied. 

For example, if you wanted to- copy a utility called 
Fflt D from CoverDisk 27 ‘s Utilities drawer to a directory 
.. d II ed FRED on your Workbench disk, ycm r d type: 

CWT mm INUTILITIES/ Fill n UDHICBEHCHI -3/FRED ill 

Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory 
con and drag it across to the new disk's window. This 
t«as 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 Powerf acker, so when 
you try to copy them to another disk and then try to read 
them you can! unless you have also copied the 
Powerpacker library into your LIB5 drawer, 


I iiliMliili.il 



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

De-archiving 

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

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

Say we have archived a program called FRED. You 
simply double dick on FRED's icon, and will be asked if 
you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to, Type "y* 
or V accordingly, 

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

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

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

Workbench 3 

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

IF the program is specifically designed to 
work with Workbench 1 then you may have to 
copy the program to your hard drive or 
Workbench disk using the process described 
eariier on this page.

Commodore saved a few bob on the retail I 
price by cutting the odd corner. 

There's no tackiness involved, [ust ,il 
hint of the pile-'em-high, sell-'em-cheap 
manufacturing ethos which has seen Sega 
and Nintendo cut Iheir prices to the bone. 

Ports and interfaces are surprising^ 
numerous on this machine, and there an 
no fewer than three ways of send live 
CD32's video signal to the screen. Beside 
the usual composite video and R/ F (TV I 
output, there is an S-VHS port to enable 
higher quality pictures on the more expen- 
sive TVs or monitors with an 1XA input.

appears pn the control screen jf either of These formats is used 
Med ISO 9060 standard is supported, so II should be possible for users to 
i PC artwork Or clip art (not that many games pteyors will wanl to), but the 
; development has to be the adoption of a world Video CD formal. 

.Mined by CD32. \Adeo CD is a format already common in prolessional 
for The mixing gl video and music on a disc and centres around the MPEG 
mCD32’sFMVcard B 
ndustry is expected to fump in a very pig way on the possibility of putting a 
on a CD in full music video format. For music fans, (he chance to play music 
■ orfrof over the Qfder the Iracks are played in and toll CD quality sound will be 
so esist. Clearly, the future of the games industry is in CD and other mass stor- 


■- which alow (he combination of superb music, video and video games in one 
mm package. 

«sure opportunities are unpamlieled and the level ot fun we cart all expect Irom 
i*wi3pfnenl is not io be understated If Commodore can gel the marketing right and 
~ ■ : ooys and girls release enough good games CD32 should be m I he enviable 

*Kr i ■ Mning in an the ground floor with a working FMV option, proven lechnoloqy,

CD3£ is in a position to be boosted right into orbit.

•applied for our test was equipped 
T* Appropriate lead . Stereo audio 
I f leads are also included, so quick 
■ i h assured. 

ifcome addition to the ports is the 
switch, borrowed from the much 



loved C64 by the look of it, which sits on 
the rear panel between the power socket 
and the large interface slot. 

Power is supplied via a F5L of the 
smaller variety rather t han the bulky brick 

m* 

supplied with most A 1200s, so the 
machine should be easy enough to move

from room to room or house to house 

The interface slot, a 150-pin effort offer- 
ing full access to all CTO 2 processor func- 
tions , takes up alnNwt half the rear panel 
and is covered by a blanking plate . It is 
here that the FMV cartridge wlIJ sit once 
released r and here that third-party manu- 
facturers wilJ no doubt soon bo attaching 
floppy dri ves and so on. 

For the moment, Commodore are keep- 
ing quiet about their expansion plans tor 
CD32, hoping naturally to get the tbrng 
out of the door and on the shelves before 
la Iking about what it tun 
be turned into, but plans 
are afoot to give users the 
option of converting it to a 
computer using various 
add-ons, 

Any A, 4000 keyboard 
can already be connected 
to the AUX port sitting 
beside (he two joystick 
connectors on the left- 
hand sidv of the casing, 
and as the port doubles up 
as a high speed RS422 
serial port, it is to be 
expected that someone 
will find another u?,e for it, 

Though unlikely that 
serious applications will 
find their way onto this machine, with its 
price point and imminent FMV capability 
you'd be mad not to predict that it will 
sckfii be appearing In the multimedia field.

What » more intriguing is a hint that 
Commodore plan to add an expansion 
box, fitting the 15flkpin slot, wh ich would 
offer A 1 2CKJ facilities in one fell swoop, 
presumably including the usual serial, 
parallel, and floppy ports, but it i^ doubt- 
fiiil whether this would prove popular 
with CD32 owners. 

For the immediate 
future, it Would seem a 
much more sensible pol- 
icy to concentrate on the 
machine's excellent 
games playing possibili- 
ties than dilute the mes- 
sage with talk of boring 
old computers, which 
explains why, if 
Commodore have such

When turned on, CU32 
at first displays a very 
colourful screen showing 
a spinning disc and logo, 
at which point the device simply waits 
until a CD k inserted. If this Is a grime CD„ 
the system up, and if a music disc 
the audio control panel pops up 

Similar in design to CDTVh audio 
panel, the options on offer include all the 
usual controls found on a conventional 
CD player, including program function, 
shuffle, fast forward, rewind, pause, and 
so on.

Amiga Co m put in cj October 1993 











hardware 


tht-hok might easily turn out to be its 
planar chip- Designed to turn ''chunky 
pixels" - the name given to pixels under 
byte per pixel graphics - inta the Amiga's 
more usual bitplaiw graphics at high 
speed, the Planar chip make* il possible 
for games houses to convert PC games to 
the Amiga with ease 

COMPLEX CD32 

Byte per pixel graphics are stalled 
because each pixel on screen is held in 
memory as a single byte which holds the 
pixel's colour in formation. The Amiga 
utilises bit plane graphics, which means 
that a pixel is stored in a much more com- 
plex way as pari of a bitplane. 

In effect, it takes one write operation to 
a single memory address to change the 
cokmr of a chunky pixel as opposes! to the 
eight different memory addresses it takes 


to change a pixel stored in bitplane mode. 

(.fames such as X-lAing, Strike 
Commander and Ultima Underworld - all 
PC-only games at the moment - which 
make extensive use of huge pseudo sprites 
and texture mapping would not normally 
find their way onto a machine which uses 
bitplane graphics. With the Planar chip, 
this is now ea*y as pie. 

Storing the chunky pixols in memory 
then converting them at high speed before 
passmg them on tor screen display, the 
PUrnar chip enables l*C programmers to 
forget about complex graphics trickery 
when porting a pame and get on with the 
task of recoding the garnet main 
program. 

As this Is often written in the highly 
portable C language, we should soon so? a 
steady trickle of high quality PC conver- 
sions as the user base of CD32 owner* 
grows. As Bullfrog's Peter Molyneux said

when he first saw the Planar chip's inclu- 
sion in CD32: "Thank Christ fur that! 1 ' ^ 

it is perhaps ironic that one ot CD 32 s 
most appealing, feature's, from the devel- 
oper’s point ot view at least, could be its 
ability tn use old-fashioned graphics 
techniques. 

Commodore, in response to user con- 
cerns, have made announcements to the 
effect that CD32-eumpatibk drives are 


being developed for both the A 1 200 fli 
MU DO However, as more emerges abo 
just exactly what is inside the iu- 
machine, some of us are beginning 
wonder. 

Two main obstacles appear to stand 
the wav of a straightforward bolt-on ' 
drive for the AG A machines. First, 
CD-specific Kick-start extensions. 

Packed into the (TD12’s Kickstarl 5 
chip are several new libraries and exi 
functions which the A 12(10 does not shai

built-in lk of flash RAM in which gal 
high scores are stored, CD FileSystem fi

There is no reason lo believe these c<

Why? Everyone in the software busi- 
ness agrees, and we've spoken to fust 
about everyone on your behalf, that the 
machine is sufficiently state-of-the-art 
while still beeiig cheap enough for any- 
one to boy. 

Of course Commodore could have put 
an (J4Q in it and have MPEG built-in 
rather than having it as an add-on, but 
the machine would have cost about £700- 
£1,000, which is too darn expensive. 

Software people like l he CD32 for 
many reasons - its double speed drive, 
its price (although most said this would 
come down just like all Ami gas previ- 
ously) but what they liked most was not 
that it is a console, but that It's an 
Amiga. 

The Amiga, unlike both the leading 
game consoles, ts an open platform 
which anyone can develop for. You don't 
need permission or a lot of money to 
make games for it, just an idea and the 
ability to code in some language. 

After that all you need is the ability to 


get your code onto a CD. One of the 
things that people do like is the idea of 
big games with no disk swapping, no 
installation, and the fact that no matter 
how big your program you still only 
have one disk to duplicate. 

Then there's the new MPEG capability, 
the full motion \ iden adaptor due in the 
Shops later tn the year. Will anyone he 
developing for that? 

I he reaction was mixed, with some 
people saying that the MPEG and soft- 
ware side shouldn't mix, and they should 
be kept separate. 

But basically software people like the 
CD32 because ifs competitive. The more 
platforms, within reason, the healthier 
the market is. it promotes competition 
and allows more people to put things 
into the business. 

If you reduce the number of compa- 
nies you reduce the people who control 
what's happening in the market. On the 
whole everyone thinks Commodore have 
made thy right choice. 

All that remains is for the public to 
buy the thing in quantity and they've got 
it sussed, but what do the people in the 
know, the software producers, think?

Gremlin’s Janus North Hearn was in no 
doubt what he thought about it. "We 
really want the machine to succeed and 
we're willing to support it with product.' 

Have they gut new stuff ready to go? 
"'Producing CD product takes time. We r re 
aiming to have a few products out. Zoo! 
and couple of others. They'll be good 
products, but they won't represent true 
CD capability. You're really looking at 
next year when it starts coming through 
like that." 

What impressed them most about the 
tech specs of the new machine? "To 
Commodore's credit they came to us and 
we Literally got to write down what we 
w r an ted.

weren't implemented due to cost, but I

not happening at this moment. 

"The twin speed CD is really good, 
and 1 think that's a grtat improvement. 
Quad speed would have been nicer." 

And the price? "T think the price is 
good, again it would have been nice if it 
had been £199 or £25ft. But if it had come 
out at £250 or ElW we d all be saying 
wouldn't it be nice at £150!"

The Bitmap Brothers are famous for 
making graphically superior action

new engine? 

J ' We're wnrking out way through ihe

32-colour version like th+' origin and it

too many disks if we'd have done it on

intro with a voice over on it. 

"There are going to be things which 
make it better than the floppy version, it 
isn't going to be as appropriate as, say, 
graphic adventures-'’ 

Why aren't the capabilities of the 
machine suited to action games? What 
would be best for it? "Renegade are pub- 
lishing this game Flight of the Amazon 
Queen in the graphic adventure style, a 
Lucasfilm or Siena-type product. 

'"Now that is immediately attractive 
for the CD32 because you don't have all 
the hassle of disk swapping, also you do 
have the enhanced 2Pi^-eo!our mode so 
in that way you can see it's more obvi- 


ously the benefits of compact disc than

Ocean 

You'd expect one of the biggest and oldest 
software houses- to be in at the start oi a 
new format, and as Ocean's Simon Ally 
explained, this was true. "The truth of the 
matter is that we hope it succeeds, and 
we're very much behind it" 

But what about software? Well, Jurassic 
Park could have figured very prominently 
in the CD32's future, but for two things. 
"One is we haven't tied up the deal yet 
with Universal, secondly it's timing. There 
will definitely be no bundle, contrary to 
popular belief. We'd love tu do one. But 

it's all about who owns 3150." 

A little delving reveals that Steven 
Spielberg, via MC A/Universal, owns a

W hen someone tells you to 
into comma it isii t &n 
invitation to slip into some 
tight-fitting woolly pants. No sir, it“s a 
world of communications. 

This is the practice of using your 
Amiga with a modem to link up to 
another computer down a domestic: 
phone line. Ifs something which j lot of 
people do every day and don't even 
think about it* In feet once you're set up 
you can do comm* as easily as you 
would make a phone call, 

All you need to get started is your 
Amiga and a phone - which you already 
have, a serial cable, a piece of terminal 
software - and a modem. 

Modems are bits of hardware which 
you link to the Amiga via the serial con- 
nector at the back. You do this with a 
special serial cable that you would get 
from your friendly local computer shop. 

The serial cable is designed for modem 
use, and not what they call a null modem 
cable Which is differently wired inter- 
nally for connecting two computers in the 
same room directly via the serial port, tor 
machine-to-machine direct transfers or 
(or playing two-player /two-computer

So where do you plug your phone? 
Info the modem of course- there is a 
pass-through on the modem, allowing 
yon to use your phone normally when 
you're not using the modem, hut allow- 
(Tij* the modem to remain connected to 
the phone line. 

Once you're all connected up to a 


Amiga Computing’s 
communications columnist Phil South 
explains why we should all have a modem, J 
and how the diminutive boxes can be used 


phone line?, the modem is controlled by a 
piece of software called a terminal pro- 
gram, This is used to dial up bulletin 
boards and conferencing systems. 

The program usually stores phone 


numbers of the boards you use on a regu- 
lar basis, so you can just dial them up by- 
selecting them from a menu rather than 
having to dial the number-, manually. 

A bulletin board system, or BBS, is a 


Using com ms software 


Terminal software is easy to come by, and almost all the 
best programs are in the public domain. Term. NComm 
AZComm and jRComm are names which spring to mind, 
and almost ail of these have appeared on AC CoverDisks 
from time lo lime. 

1 use NCOMM because l find it to be the most useful, 
simplest to use, and the most powerful. Logging on to your 
lavounte bulletin board is simple. You just spend a tow 
minutes setting up your phone bock, a Ifet of BBSs arn 
their numbers and setlshgs, and save this to disk. 

Alter you've done that you only have 10 select the nano 
from a menu list and then the modem automatically dials 
up your BBS and allows you to log on . 

You must have a name and password to prevent other 
people logging on as you - especially usetut when you are 
paying for the service on the BBS 1 

Each session can be saved as a text tile, so you car, go 
back and re-read anything you read on the BBS, and any 
messages or electronic mail lor you can be stored on disk 


or ever printed out. Also any files which you get from the 
BBS, any programs for the Amiga wnich you got from the 
board can be saved to disk for use. 

You oould download NCOMM from a BBS, but o( course 
you'd need a copy of NComm to do H. Best get it Irom a PD 

software house then, 

Belore we taunch you into the world ot comms. here are 
some important points to take note of, On most BBSs mere 
will be message areas or conference top*c$ where you can 

leave messages to other users. 

Treat other board users with respect and they'll welcome 
you wilti open arms. The users are like members of a pri- 
vale club, so bear in mind at all times that you are a new 
member. Announce your presence and wart to be invited in. 

As in real life situations, listen lar a while before you 
start to talk. Until you talk nobody will know you're there, 
but keep quiet until you know what you're talking about. 

These again, dan t take ihis too tar and be silent forever, 
Someone who hangs about but doesn t speak is called a 


lurtcer 1 '. Be alert, but don't be s lurk. 

Another important point. Once you've locked around ihe 
system and want to leave, remember to log of property, 
You can cause all sorts of problems for the sysops (system 
operator if you just turn your computer off when you are 
online. 

You might suffer from power cuts or similar acts Of god, 
but don't do it deliberately. Leave the system intact lor the 
next user to enjoy. 

And don't just download a load of software and then bog 
o« again. The practice ol taking software but not contribut- 
ing anything is called ' trough! ng" or graphically Iwchintf, 

and it's generally not appreciated 

it you find a nice hie somewhere in your adventures 
across ihe Net that you’d like to share, check if it s on the 
system first and ihen upload it. 

IF you at least upload one file for every one or two that 
you download men that’s something. If you caolribute more 
than you lake, there will be place for you in BBS heaven.

tQuoncy of the iransmili&d sound, whereas at speeds 
1 sher than i^Oobcs the data ?s encoded by varying the 
n^ase of the sound waves-, encoding two bits of dHia per 
phase stiifl.

Puzzling 

protocols 

IF you want to send or receive files from a 
hp$t computer, ypu nesd fO icngw about 
protocol like X Modem, Y Modem, 
ZModem. and even JlVtodam! 

These are styles of transfer protocol 
used by host computers to sand and 
rggeive Files from you the remote termi- 
nal. If you don't have the nghi protocol! 
set on your machine the transfer will nol 
take place. 

The need lor protocols arises when 
you touch on the subject of line noiseT 
The signal to and From your computet via 
the phone Imk is sound, and so the kind 
of crackles you get on the phone line can 
affect the signal 

This doesn't happen as often as it did 
back in the old days now that most 
exchanges are digital, but it does occur 
occasionaly. Transfer protocols ensure 
that the file that left the host is the file that 
reaches you, so eadi bit u! data that is 
sent is given a checksum (I it doesn’t 
match at your end, the data is sent again, 

The chiei methods oF error correction 
are ZModem, Y Modem and XModem, 
although there arc packets ot others-. Use 
ZModem and you won't go Far wrong„ 

As Far as setting up your modem 
goes, read toe instructions which come 
with it and it in any doubt don't change 
anything or alter any settings unless you 
understand. 


I've never understood: the though! pro- 
cess of some people when they first start 
using computers; it seems they think that 
people who use computers have strange 
precognitive powers that enable them to 
guess how things work. 

So when they buy the computer they 
just type things into the command hne 
hoping that one or two of them wilF work 

As we all know this is not how it's 
done, so why do the $ame Ihmg with 
commg? Opening configuration screens 
and randomly changing settings are the 
comm s equivalent ot typing in HELLO 
WORLD ai Ihe CU prompt Just use the 
modem out of the box and it should work 
fine. 

The factory presets are usually spot 
on, and this goes double for Supra 
modems, which have very dear instruc- 
tions, and very intelligent factory set- 
tings. Balh ihe Supras 1 use have never 
t>een altered since I got them. 

One thing you do have to change, as 
it is probably been reset by you or a pro- 
gram, is the serial pref in your Amiga. 
Use ths serial program in your Prefs 
folder to set your serial port to twice the 
speed of your modem, so if it s £.400 set 
4,300. This makes- sure that rhe data 
iravellmg from the modem to- your com- 
puter isn't slowing up the process 
or causing a data bottleneck, and 
going at the fastest speed it can 
manage.

measured in “ baud" which is commfi 1 
speak for hits per second. Speeds yon 
will probably see mentioned are l r ZULJ, 
2,400, 9m> 14,400 or even HST- 
It is a good Idea to gel the fastest 
modem you c^n afford* 3 1 though it 
you're feeling a bit hard up you could 
ii<e a 2,400 nr 4, $00 model, as this is the 
best balance of price / performance, and 
2,401k can be picked up for as little as 
£50. 

The reason that the fastest modem is 
the best is the simple fact that the more 
time you spend on the phone line the 
more expensive the hobby becomes, 
faster transfer rates mean loss time 
online and more money in your pocket- 
Supra make a range of very good 
modems tor Amiga, ami their products 
would be a good place to start looking, 
Some feature MNP 5 data compression, 
which enables you to double the effec- 
tive speed of your modem use. On a 
2,400 modem this means that you can 
download files at close to 4S0 charac- 
ters per second. 

Files which are already compressed 
(archived using AR.C r LHAftC or simi- 
lar, or even JPEG or CJF files) slaw 
down, so trying to compress them 
again does nothing. This means that 
although the compressed files arc 
smaller, they transfer slower. So it 
you're getting text tiles, you might as 
well transfer them un archived, 

FAX OPTION 

!f you have a modem with MNP n, 
set your terminal software to twice the 
speed it should be to allow the fastest 
possible transfers. If your modem 
doesn't allow compression then il has 
to be set to the correct speed - the 
Supra V32bis Fas Modem for example. 

This model offers V. 32b is or 
1 4,400bps as its top speed. It is totally 
downwardly compatible with the 
slower baud rates, offers error correc- 
tion as standard and is Hayes compati- 
ble. Il also has fax facilities built in for 
both sending and receiving, 

St will answer the phone and decide 
if the caller is a fax machine or a 
modem and deal with it accordingly- 

The unit custs £26 L £ 

Supra alsci do the bupra Fax Modem 
at about £139. but this doesn't offer the 
higher speeds for modem use, jus-t for 
fax. HI be telling you more about this

the modems will reduce speed as in tailback. but 
will increase the speed back again il the -.me con.

This indicates that ST have tested the modem 
and passed. They have pat a stamp o! approval

O nce tire initial ex cite men! □! 
using a fast storage medium 
instead of floppies for the 
first lime has subsided, the poor old 
hard drive so quickly fades into the 
background Ihal it Is easy to forget 
what using floppies was like. Lets 
recap, shall we? 

Floppies are the most infuriating, 
stubborn, pig-headed, useless, rotten, 
nasty little SJ in terrorise this side of 
the PLO, and using them as one s 
prime method of storage is tanta- 
mount to a long drawn out suicide 
attempt. There - got it off my chest. 

For all our readers who wish lo 
escape Stalaglutt Floppy, and who 
might be considering a hard drive this 
Christmas or in Ihe near future, there 
are three main questions to be asked 
before any money changes hands;: 


SCSI-2 drive for virtual memory and 
graphics processing. 

Remember that if a peripheral is 
badly chosen and doesn’t suit the 
tasks to which it is put. if is a waste of 
money whether it was a bargain buy 
or not, 

A120Q owners, whose options are 
limited mostly to internal IDE drives, 
have tittle or no say over what sort of 
hard drive they fit, though they at 
least have the benefit of the cheapest 
MDs In the Amiga market. 

Owners of the ASOQ/SOD PlusHSOO, 
however, can choose from a much 
wider range of drives, complete with a 
variety of memory and even accelera- 
tor options. 

A BOO owners are in the best posh 
tion at the moment. The machine is no 
longer the flagship of the Amiga 
range, but it Is still present 



share of the market. 

Hard drive prices for Ihe ASO 0 have 
been falling over the past two years, 
and there has never been a be Her time 
to snap up a bargain for a machine 
which will continue to be a hard work- 
ing Amiga with plenty of software 
support for years to come,

i How much money can l spend? 

# Witt it do the job for me ? 

• What about expansion? 


Spending limits will vary from 
buyer to buyer, but the basic premise 
that a hard drive must be chosen with 
its job and future expansion plans in 
mind stands whether the user is 
after a 20Mb drive to store 
Monkey Island 2. or a 240Mb 


Drive type: SCSI 
Make: Seagate ST325N 
Capacity: 20Mb 
Fits: A5QQ. A5Q9 Plus 
Extras: SCSI through-port external PSU 
RAM expansion tor 2Mb 


Why are we still looking el this old sol- 
dier? The A59G was the ordinal and offi- 
cial Commodore hard drive lor the ASOth 
and thousands of them were sold 

Despite the fact that Ihe first models * 

were slow AT-IDE drives with silly price 

tags, it has survived as a viable alternative to faster bid more expensive modern drives. 

Due lo its age the A59Q can be found viciously price slashed In some of our mail order 
advertisements, and with Us proven technology, reliability and extra features, it makes a good 
buy for those with limited hard drive needs. 

In its official configuration, Ihe drive is a 20Mb model, a sire which is of use only to games 

players and those who use only one or two packages at most. 

However, if the user is a flight sim buff and simply requires a 

^ drive onto which FIT SuperVVombat IK can be transferred along 

Ik with a wordprocessor and some other utilities, 20Mb is plenty. 

As a peripheral, the A590 is finished to Commodore’s 
usual high quality, with superb manuals and reasonably 
good sollware. Workbench t.3 should normally be found 
ready in stalled on Ihe drive, bid this can be easily replaced 
with 2,04, as the formatting software will ask the user to 
L insert Workbench disks to copy to HD once Ihe drive has 
been propped and partitioned.

formal the drive after a couple ol tries with the 
rather confusing approach >E fakes, but any 
sane owner is advised Ed find some alternative 
HD toofbox software rattier than use the sup- 
plied disk, 

This is all a bit ol a shame, as tho drive is a 
perfectly good example of what can be 
achieved by putting a bit of efforl into a 
design. 

Manuals are good, with hints and advice on 
living with a hard drive. Ihe hardware itsell is

ICD TVifecta LX 

This drive enjoys the distinct advantage 
of being supplied with tCD 5 HD Prep 
software, a slrong contender for the 
Best HD Software award. 

Setting up the unit for normal use is 
therefore easy and simple, with prop- 
ping, partitioning, and Workbench 
installation ail taken care of within a 
single user-friendly program. 

On the hardware front, Trifecta Is a 
huge drive styled to match the A50G shape, but overhanging by Iwo full inches at 
the rear, inside this cavernous space is a double standard interface which, in the 
more expensive LX version, accommodates both SCSI-2 and IDE drives. 

Connecting both SCSI and IDE drives inside one drive case seems a little 
strange at first, but the option to buy the cheaper IDE-only EC versson. then 
upgrade by adding a SCSI controller chip and cable at a later date is in appeal- 

frig one. 

Users with expansion in mind can start from relatively austere beginnings and 
add an extra drive, SMb R AM. or even a PC emulator via the GVP-style mini-slot

Alfa Power 


The AltaPower is cne of a few external IDE drives for the A5QQ P and is an attempt to

Housed in a Sightly packed tough plastic casing into which a second IDE drive 
can be dialled so long as both are hall height uniis. the AlfaPower is a workman- 
like litlie beast. 

Extra RAM to the lune of 8Mb can be filled alongside the drives, sc despile the 
lack of a ihrough-pcrt (impossible with a non-SCSI mechanism in any case), there 
is fairly generous room (or expansion.

Horses for cours 



As ever, the most impodani consideration when thinking 
about a new peripheral is the task to which the device is 
going lo be put. Users with ambitions on Ihe graphics, 
music or vkfeo side ol the Amiga would be barmy to buy 
only a 40Mb drive, and games players with the add word- 
processor are hardly hkely to need or fill a 21 0Mb 
SCSI-2. 

Generally speaking, the enthusiast will be in a position 
where Workbench a lew productivity packages such as 
Marian and Pretext, and the odd game such as Monkey 
Island 2, are becoming ]usl too much of a pain to load 
from floppies. 

For such people an 80Mb IDE. such as Ihose now 
popular on the A1200, would be ample storage, and 
40Mb would jusl about do it the budget is stretched 

Others who see ihe hard drive as a way to expan-u the 
Amiga's uses and wish to mess about with large sound 


samples, video digitised sequences, 24-bit graphics, and 
so on, would be adviced to go (or at least BDMb r with 
105Mb as a comfortable in-between, and 240Mb as the 
ideal. 

This may sound like a huge amount of storage, but it is 
barely adequate to hold AD Pro and a coupie of hundred 
decent 24- bi? files and soon fills up. 

SCSI EXPANSION 

In addilton, expansion-minded owners would be well 
advised to look at SCSI before plumping lor Ihe IDE stan- 
dard. A120D owners now have a choice with Ihe advent 
ol SCSI-RAM Irom GVP. and there are other interfaces 
on the way. 

With SCSI, the ability to add another drive when 
needed or conlrol an optical drive, scanner, or plotter, 
can be essential when the lowly A120Q begins to build 


over the years into Ihe centre of a powerful system. 

Most owners may never need !o look at another hard 
drive, and for those IDE is perfect, tut anyone with an eye 
for the horizon and a wallet to match, SCSI Is the only 
choice. 

Golden rule number one is not just to settle for what 
you can afford at the lime If you need a bigger drive, hold 
on to your cash until you can afford one ralher Ihan spend 
£200 on a peripheral which soon becomes a hindrance, 

Golden rule number two is to avoid buying more than 
you'll ever need. Don't splash out on an 80Mb drive iusI 
because the salesman tells you it's the most popular 
model and "you'll soon fill it up". 

Unless you have a tot of games you play at the same 
time, or a large number of expensive productivity pack- 
ages to install, larger drives can soon become money 
spent in waste.

Amiga Competing Octou^r - 



For long the title holder as far as A5O0 
hard drives are concerned, HD8+ has ior 
over two years been A touchstone for 
quality and speed. Though recently 
caught by drives such as the infecta, the 
GVP unit is still one of the very best buys 

around. 

Manuals and software supplied with 
the drive are of a high quality, and the 
FaaastPrep software is good enough that 
it shou Id n't confuse begi nneiS* 

There is sometimes a little too much 
technical information on offer for my lik- 
ing, especially for those confronting a 
hard drive for the first time, but with the 
help of the clear documentation, setting 
up, pnepping and partitioning should be 

a stroll for most of us. 

In use, the large and easy to reach 
fl ame switch, SCSI through-port, and 
8Mb RAM expansion capability give the 
GVP a smooth, well thought out feel, but 
the pace of the Quantum drive humming 
a wav below the casing is the unit's major

attraction. 




Most drive units within

Amiga Computing October 1993 


Al the moment, A1200 owners are 
faced with a fairly thin choice based 
mostly on the relative price of com- 
peting - and virtually Identical - 
internally fitted IDE drives. 

With the official A12WHO option 
now available, more and more own- 
ers wilt no doubt buy their Amigas 
with HD already installed, but for 
those who start with a floppy and 
wish to stiffen up their storage at a 
later date, the range of kits on ofler 
is bewildering. 

Something to remember, however, 
is that most kils are more or less the 
same. centring as they 
do around a limited number of 2.3 
inch drive manufacturers and all of 
them using the same hard drive 
Interface as built into the At 200 and 
A&GQ. 

So long as a drive unit is manufac- 
tured by Conner, Maxtor, Seagate, 
Quantum or IBM. you can be assured 
that its performance will not differ 
significantly from the 
others. 

For example, much of the differ- 
ence between the GVP HD&+ and 
slower drives which use the same 
Quantum drive mechanism is due to 
the clever Faaastprep ROMs and I he 
GVP SCSI interface. Take 
^^^Blaway I he interface variable 
■l and most drive units 
■ within a certain price 
yHMH range perform more or 
less the same, 


^ Software is the key. Any 
hard drive will be fine so long as a 
cable is included, but If the propping 
software is useless, the new owner 
is in for a hard time of it (no pun 
intended). 

The answer? A program called 
RDPrep, released by Microbotics 
as a freely distributibfe rigid 
disk block formatter. Rigid 
. Disk Blocks are blocks on a 
hard drive which hold all the infor- 
mation concerning how a drive is 
partitioned, what filing system It 
uses, end so on,, end are now e stan- 
dard on Amiga HOs. 

RDPrep simply and efficiently 
preps and formats any herd drive the 
user cares to prep, and does 
so with the minimum fuss and 
bother. 

RDPrep will be making an appear- 
ance on a CoverDisk in the 
near future, so keep you eyes 
peeled. Alternatively, just buy the 
cheapest IDE drive you can lay 
hands on and get RDPrep from a PD 
library.

would like to add my voice to those complaining about programs which cannot be 
installed on hard drives, A few months ago ! purchased a Virgin game called Lure of 
"he Temptress which comes on lout disks and uses manual protection, ft cannot foe 
nstslied on a hard disk. 

On page ton rot the manual iE lists system feqmremenls. and under MS-DOS version 
slates 'hard drive recommended" and Includes instructions on hard drive installation. 
Once again a software company has made the Amiga look like the poor relation. 

I have given up trying to complete the game because oi the large number of disk 
swaps, even with two floppy drives, and I now Iry to avoid like the plague programs that 
cannot be installed on a hand disk. Software houses take notel 

Nicholas Rodgra ve, Cfevedon 

Take note indeed! The more Amiga owners complain to software companies about toe 
hard dove frtoasvon the more likely we are to see sgmototog done. / suggest you wrrte to 
Virgin and toil them exactly what you think. 

To be fair, every software company, not just Virgin r i s guilty of ignoring the growing 
number of Amiga hard drive owners t something which should soon be impossible as 
more and more people boy upgrades or machines such as toe A 1200HD. 

The only way to make a commercial concern take notice of you rs to make a com- 
mercial protest If you feel so strongly about the lack of hard drive-compatible games, 
write to the games company concerned, tell them you am unhappy with their product 
and that you will not buy another non-HD game f then stick to buying games which do 
work on hard disk. 

Mtoen software houses receive a steady dribble of letters from aggneved owners and 
see sales of HD games picking up. ft won't be long before they change course and start 
to cater for the market. This, after all, is the onfy way to succeed in business.

Basic problem 

I bought my first ever home computer, an 
Amiga ftOl), Las! August, and l haw Mnct 
bought games to play on it and used vari- 
ous ut ill lies supplied free on your 
CoverDisk. 

I then felt it was time 1 attempted to 
write some programs for my self, so I pur- 
chased some books to assis t me, namely 
Phil South's Mastering Amiga Beginners, 
Amiga Made Eitty by Patrick Half, and Paul 
Fellows's Basic. 

AIL three books slate that J should find 
an icon on my Extras disk called 
AmigaBasic, but although I have searched 
the disk thoroughly I am unable to find it 

The Workbench I am using is v2.Q4., 
Am I doing something wrong? Could you 
advise me on where to get help? I 
desperately want to get j^olng with 
programming. 

Sue Standing, Epsom 

You are doing nothing wrong, rather it is the 
authors who told you to took on the Extras 
disk who m at fault AmigaBask hasn't bem 
supplied with AmigaDOS since Workbench 
j.3, haring been replaced in part by ARexx , 


zi'Ijjl'/j y^zr will find is supplied with your copy 
tf Workbench 

Unfortunately, there is no information on 
Altexx in pur Workbench tmmmk, and our 
monthly ARexx Insight column ha * long gone 
pmi the absolute burner's stage. You could 
try Bruce Smrflr BuoJfcs on 092d 894355 for 
informal ion on their excellent Mastering 
Amiga AKexx book. 

On the other hand, a back issue of 


Workbench icon! 

1 bought a copy of Lemmings 2 Patch 
from 17-bit Software, a patch written by 
Psygno&is and released into the public 
domain, which installs the game on your 
hard drive. 

Now a question. With Workbench TO I 
can use Multi view to view various test 
and graphics files. However, the manual 
states that [ can add other datatypes to the 


AUGIR disk 

A tew months ago you were kind enough 
to print a letter of mine informing your 
readers of a PD title l was putting together 
filled AUG IK, or the Amiga User Group 
International Register. 

This letter is to inform your readers 
that the said disk was released at the end

A500 lias lots of mileage left 


As a purchaser ol Commodore's products, l am one of the victims 
who bought an A50Q Plus, then watched il killed off after a couple 
Ol months I have rebelled by ignoring the A12GG, find instead pur- 
chased an A530 with which I am extremely pleased 

Alter reading tbe letter by J Farrar Irom Hayle, J would recom- 
mend Epic from Ocean and Frames ol Freedom if cm Rainbird, 
boih of which run at tremendous speed wish the accelerator 
enabled. 

On another note, l have a problem with PageStream vt.2. 
When loadmg dip ad I get a corrupted imago if the clip art is 
loaded as an object, but fine il loaded as a picture window.. Ot% 
and lhanks lor the G inemorph ji disk or the August issue - its just 

loads ^ ^ Paul Tompkins. Harrow 


j"m glad you liked the Cinemorph jr program and hope you find it 
fun for a good tong time to come. It's atso nice to hear someone 
who continues to have faith in the future of his supposedly out- 
dated A500 Plus 

As your investment in an A530 confirms, the older Amigas 
have a great deal of life left in them yet and should continue to 
render sterling service to their owners for years. That said, it is 
unwise simply to “ignore" the A 1200. 

In conjunction with the CD32 the At 200 constitutes the future 
of the Amiga range and is a landmark in that, so long as tt con - 
toes to set) welt, it leys the ground rules for future Amiga deveh 
Qpment: more RAM, faster 32-bit processors, and 24-bit 
graphics.

tutorial 


W hat have you learned SO far ? 

By now you should be able 
to format a bootable disk 
from AmigaDOS, have a basic undeistand- 
ine of the directories and the way commands 
work. This may not seem much - but you 
have absorbed a lot more than you may 
think. 

This month, you will need your working 
Amiga DOS disk and your formatted, 
bootable disk from last time. At the end of 
last month, you learned how to get a listing 
of ail the directories and sub-directories on 
any disk, Let's recap that command: 

1>P[R dFD: KIS ALL 

This command lists all the directories and 
sub-directories on the disk in drive DFQ: 
(provided the command has been made "res- 
ident 1 ' as explained before}. But what it wc 
wanted to specify a particular disk, and what 
if DIK was not resident? 

When you enter a command like this, the 
first argument tells It where to look- In this 
case we're using a drive name, but 
AmigaDOS keeps a list of all the drives and 
disks currently available to the user. 

When vou insert a disk in any drive and 
the system sees it (it appears on Workbenchi 
ft is *iid to be ''mounted''. At this point the 
disk's "volume" name is added to a list 
called the "assignment list”, Aflnig£DOS has 
a special command, INFO, to show the cur- 
rent drives and volumes on the assignment 
list. 

Open the Shell and enter: 

l»MFt 

Your screen may look a little complicated 
(and yours will be different because no two 
disks are exactly alike) so let s examine what 
it all means. 

The name of the device in question is 
listed under the heading Unit. Two standard 
drives are supplied with every machine - 
DR1: (the internal floppy drive) and RAM: (a 
RAM disk generated by Workbench), My 
machine has hard drives; yours may- 
have others shown such as a second 
floppy, 

Size is the sire of the disk in the specified 
drive in kilobytes, used tells the number of 
disk blocks (sectors) used, while Free dis- 
plays the number of free disk blocks - this 
depends on the formatted size of the disk in 
question, 

Full stows the peitetUage of the disk used 
- calculated from die number of free blocks 
Vf pi K .He number of used t mes. RAM disk is 
a] ways full because at expand;* and contracts 
accord ing to reqiiinemeitk 

Errs is the number of disk errors spotted 
bv the system since the -disk was List vali- 
dated (validation is a check performed every 
time you insert a disk or write something 
to it). 

Status can display <>tk of three possibili- 
ties; Kr^d only (the disk is write protected); 
Read / Write ( the disk can be written to); or 
Ko disk present (means exactly that), 

Validating means that the disk ii currently 
being validated. This process is performed 
very quickly and it is r ate to see this message 


Aitiiqa Computing October >993 



unless the disk has developed a tault. 

The disk's volume name is listed under 
“name", while Volumes Available lists the 
names of any disks AmigaDOS has seen and 
has a "lock" on. 

If a volume is marked as [Mounted! it is 
available in some drive and appears in the 
Unit list. If a volume is marked as available, 
without the [Mounted] message AmigaDOS 
is using it hut it is rot currently inserted in 
any disk drive- Let's see that in action. 

Rpmn up the Workbench d^k. Insert your 
formatted boot disk in the internal drive 
fDFOt) and open it on the Workbench. 

Remove your disk, replace the 
Workbendt disk and enter INFO again. You 
will notice that boot disk appears under the 
list of available volumes - but is not marked 
"[Mounted]". 

Nip back to Workbench and dose boot 
disk s window. Now click inside the Shell 
and enter INFO one* again. This time you 
will see that boot disk is no longer available. 
There if a point to this; AmigaDOS keeps 
track of disky in two different ways. First; if 
knows about the physical drives mapped 
onto the sy&tem and second it knows about 
the disks loaded {mounted) in those drives. 

This means you can access a disk b\ 
name rather than drive number - very 
important if you want to access a particular 
disk regardless of where it is. 

For instance if you replace DFG: in the 
DIR example with the name of your disk, 
vou can access it no matter where it is- Try it: 

jT 

b-ao-t tllst: t(Ka Ul 

Important The name of any volume must be 
followed by a full colon (■} or AmigaDOS 
wLU nut recognise it. 

You Will notice if your formatted boot 
disk is not already mounted in some drive, 
AmigaDOS will present a requester. 

This example will not do much, because 
your bool disk is still rafter empty. You can 
try the same example on any disk - get ite 
full name from the INFO command 
described above, 

[f the disk's name contains 
spaces, it must be sur- 




rounded in quotes - there is no barm in 
using them anyway. Here arc some exam- 
pies: 

1>HI "ysrfcbtnchE >1" DIRS ALL 
1>DE1 "YB 3,0" HIS ILL 
1>DSR "Py M Dint: 1 UtS *Ll 

DIR does not have to be made resident las 
described last month) when it is used in 
this way- That's because when you access 
the command it is first loaded from disk 
and held in memory until it completes, 

The technique of using volume names 
works with almost every AmigaDOS com- 
mand'- one notable exception is INFO, If 
vou give a command such as; 

1>]RFQ "tot distf" 

ii will not give any output unless the vol- 
ume is physically mounted in some drive. 

It's all very well knowing how to list the 
directories on a disk - but what does all 
this mean? As we have seen, the structure 
{organisation) of directories on any disk is 
hierarchical - like a family. Ltf s Look at a 
simple example. 

First make the RAM disk the current 
device by entering the following (your 
screen prompt will change to reflect this). 

Now let's get a Bating of the directories 
currently present in the RAM disk s root 
directory. Notice that in this example we 
do not have to specify the device or vol- 
ume name because the command lakes [he 


Current position as a default; 

1*0 0JR5- 
Clrpts-O^rdi Cdirl 
mx (dirl 
T Wlr) 

This disk contains three directories 
were created by an AmsgfdXTS progr 
on the boot disk when the machine v 
started- 

Strictly speaking these directories 
subdirectories of the root device, RAI 
hut such paths" are usua-lly contrac 
do-wn to something more reasonable. 

Directory paths art 1 a very import 
part of AmigaDOS and a basic undent 
ing of them is vital if you are to prog 
further (just to confuse matters, there 
another path called the “search path" 
well be covering later), 

A path is a description of the position 
any object on any disk. Paths can be 
order of complexity^ Implied {the cu

In Part 4 of our introduction to 
AmigaDOS, Mark Smiddy explains the 
background to disk volumes and drives 



directory;!; Simple (a device or volume 
rjjTht); Partial {one nr more Sub-directories 
I ^ver than the current directory); Direct: 
'•the complete path specification, including 
’ device or volume name); and Relative (a 
path referenced from some other known 
position). 

When we change the current directory 
by entering the name of some disk device 
'Uch as RAM:, wq are performing a simple 
directory changtc 

AmigaDOS has a command to perform 
function (CD - current directory) hut it 
- largely redundant in AmigaDOS 1 and 
higher, so you can ignore it. 

Paths can sound quite frightening, but 
ire controlled almost exclusively by just 
two special characters, dtmxibed below; the 
-vstem handles everything; else for you 
automatically! 

Indicate the root (base) directory of 
any disk device 

Separates SLih-d [rectory names. 

Now let's see how to use these to navigate 
around Ok dijxvtory structure. 

Check you are in the RAM disk (llso DIR 
it you like), and from the prompt enter 

umn 

That will place you in the RAM disk's C 
directory - the prompt will change to reflect 
this. Using DIR shows this directory is 
empty. A better command to use would be 
□ST -like this: 

ihjst 

Dlr*ct(srsf is eapey 

The message here shows the director j, H,,T 
(thecurreni directory) has no contents. T is 
a special directory used by some 
AmigaDOS commands lo store temporary 
items. 

Now enter this: 

1*; 

There’s no [mistake there - the "; ,r tells 
Amiga IXT6 to go back to the root directory 
of the current disk. You can check this using 
DIR or LIST. 

En a similar fashion,, we can change 
directories like this: 

l>m:; 


which takes us directly to the root directory 
of the boot disk (your working AmigaDOS 
disk) and: 

1>T: 

tn go directly hack to the T di recto A' of the 
RAM Disk. The table he low li^ts these 
directory assignments aud they are dis- 
cussed in more detail shortly 

Wc saw previously how we could return 
directly to the too t level by entering a colon. 
Similarly, she slash (/) character allows us 
lo move up a single level You should be in 
the T directory of the RAM disk now, so 
enter this: 

1 *1 

The prompt changes to reflect the fact 
you are now in the root directory once 
more we've gone hack one level up the 
tree. Now Lets select another directory: 

\>m 

!>STJ 

Don’t place a>]otis after these - it's not a 
mistake! This takes you to a special direc- 
tory in the RAM Disk - with a path of 
* r KNV:$ys' r or "Ram disk.:Env/Sys Jr 
depending on which way you look at it 
This is where Workbench stores the current 
preferences files - you can use DIR or 1 1ST 
lo view the names foryuumelf. 


Now let's move up one level at a time. 

w 

takes you to "Ram DiskTruV" and: 

!>/ 

return* hack to the root directory once more. 

From the RAM disk's root directory we 
can gel directly to "Ram Dtsk;Env/Sys like 
this: 

EH/Sjrt 

or: 

And iv e can go straight back to the root 
directory by moving back up two levels in 
one step: 

1>// 

or using the root symbol: 

For my last trick in this little series of 
directory patti jumping, here's how En move 
to the boot disk's root directory, to Ram 
Disk's T directory, then to "Ram 
DisfcEtiv/Sys" using four different methods 
- try to work out what's happening: 

lHHifcT 

TWErVSys 

1>;T 

ILs enough to make your brain itch. Don't 
worry - we've covered a Lot of ground here 
and you only need to know some of the 
basic moves to manage. The clever stuff 
comes with practice... 

The subject of directory assignments is 
something that can make even the most 
experienced Amiga users go pale - so why 
intmduce it now? because assignments are 
part of the essential ground -work - not 
some esoteric subject to be hidden under the 
carpet. Boot your Working AmigaDOS disk. 


open the Shell and enter this command: 

The list can look rather frightening at first - 
especially when you consider all that infor- 
mation came from a single command. This 
list can be Subdivided under its three head- 
ings. 

The Volumes; listing is the same as 
shown under the INFO command and 
requires no further description here. 

Directories \s the most important and the 
most complex part nf the listing and shows 
the logical directories assigned to the sys- 
tem. Sums? of these are required by any 
Workbench bool disk; others are used by 
specific applications. A list of required direc- 
tories are shown in below. 

Devices shows ail the hardware and soft' 
ware devices currently attached to thy sys- 
tem. At AmigaDOS level, then.- 1 is no need to 
differentiate between a physical device such 
as a disk drive (DFO:, DFl: and $o on) and 
the software devices (such as RAM: and 
Hl-H;). Device names are always followed 
wi th a full colon. 

Logical assignments (C:, DEVS:, L: r and 
so on) can be treated fust like volumes, All 
the AmigaDOS commands are stored tn the 
C directory on the system boot disk and 
AmigaDOS looks for them by referencing 
the C: assignment. 

For instance, you can look al the contents 
of the C‘ directory n n your working 
AmigaDOS disk by entering this: 

1 >D ] R Cl 

Which, if you had booted from a disk 
labelled "Workbench 2.1 is the same as 
entering 

1 >DER S?S:C 

or 

i>d:b bfikbinchMit 

• Next month ffl took st bow to crests the 
required directories on your own boot disk.

IV dally the latest 2.1 and 3.fl 
l It b by no mums perfect though, 
ifti '*■ custodsfag vnur system so that it is 
for you, more software b needed. 

That's ihe bad news. The good news i 1 - 
everything you need is free, Well, 
tree, YotTve guessed ii, I'm talking 
io«jt so-tailed public domain ur I’D soft- 
^ are, which should be more accurately 
i Y-d freely distributable software 
it isn't actually in the public 
tanain (no copyright, that means). 

There are many flavours of 
ranging from shareware 
i> j cut-down version of 
the software (cough up for 
*hr full version), to licence 
■rue that includes an 
juthors fee in the ensl; to 
twware where the author 
retains the copyright, sup- 
plies the full version, 
and does not want any 
money but may place 
restrictions vn how it can 
h? distributed, 

And there's a lot of it. 

The Amiga E ibrary disks - 
better known as Fish disks 
-Uter the surname of the person 
* ho compiles them - feature 
more than 4,000 programs o 
almost ^10 disks. 

There are other collections, 
though none as big, that enable the 
serious public domain library to provide 
i-itftLoguee sporting thousands of disks 


One US library proudly claims a library of 
almost lfl r TO disks. 

Much of this PD software is technical or 
very specific to particular setups, but hid- 
den among the dross are some real gems. 

Something every serious Amiga user 
should own is, for want of a better term, a 
directory manager - a utility tvhich £"‘es 
you a user interface for copying, moving or 
deleting files, creating and deleting directo- 
ries, renaming files and so on. 

As well as this, directory managers 
enable you to view pictures, play 
sound samples and modules, edit 
text fifes and just about everything 
else you can think of. 

The best known of this genre 
nt software is the commercial 
Directory Opus, and it is 
indeed a marvellous pro- 
gram, but there are FD 
al tematives, 

My favourite is DirWork 
on Fish 721, written by 
Australian Chris Humes, 
who is perhaps better 
known for PC -Task, the soft- 
ware EBM-FC emulator, but 
vou might also like to check 
out MegaD on Fish 7%, SID 
on Fish 651, and Browser! E cm 
Fish 843. 

Another type of program that 
can help you manage your data ls 
a disk fixer. None of us are as careful 
as we should be about backing up 
important data, and when that floppy 
disk or hard drive partition corrupts, a res- 
cue job is required. Forget Commodore's

■ HOUSEKEEPING 


Working with floppy drives 

For the first tew months after buying an Amiga, many new owners struggle along wilh just 
the built-in floppy drive. Frustration and confusion quickly set in as time after time they boot 
from Workbench, remove that disK and insert a program disk, double-click a program icon 
and then almost immediately get asked to replace the Workbench disk. 

Ether that or the program fails to run. They soon leam that bool mg from the program disk 

causes lewer problems . 

Bootabte program disks are cut-down versions of the Workbench disk. Many nan-essen- 
tiaf Workbench files have baen deleted to make room for the program. And if you are deter- 
mined to stick with using a single floppy drive, one way to make life easier is to learn how to 
cut-down Workbench yoursetf so that you can build lots of bootable disks to contain all your 

shareware utilities. 

There are four very different versions of Workbench currently in wide use - 1 .3, 2.04/05, 
£.1 and 3.0. Of these, only 2.1 has plenty ol space free on the Workbench disk, but ih£ is 
only because all the system presences programs are on the Extras disk instead of in the 

Profs drawer on Ihe Workbench disk. 

Much software, including Workbench software, will look for certain files in SYS :P refs - 
SYS: being the root directory of the disk you booted from - and rf those files not there the 
software ray fail or not run as designed . 

Workbench 1 .3 is the simplest system and, to be perfectly Irank, is the only one of the lour 
currently in-use versions that is viable on floppy disk, Almost ttve entice contents of ihe 
Utilities drawer can be deleted - you might like to keep More end Printline, 

This wMl make about 130k tree on the Workbench 1.3 disk, which is normally plenty 'or 
installing a shareware program, and even a good number or commercial programs. 

SAFE DELETIONS 

Because you Vo deleted the (awful) Say program, DEVS : narrator. device can also be 
safely deleted as nothing else will need it. And so can L: Speak-Handler. In the C: directory 
there are 64 files of varying sizes, and a lot of them can be got rid ok Check yoi^ 
S: startup-sequence file first, make a note ol all the commands used in that file, and make 
sure you don't delete any of them. 

Theros one quite big one that can go because you'll never need il: Edit (but not Ed; 
You can also delete the DiskDoctor program because it causes more problems than il 

cures. 

WUh the above deletions you should be able to make about 20Dk of free space. And 
that's about as far as you can safely go. 

Workbench 2.04/05 users can try the same idea, but as a Id of the system is in the 
Kickstart 2 ROM there are not so- many "non-e&sentiar files on the disk and it's very diffi- 
cult to make even 100k of space 

l think I can assume that everyone using Workbench 2.1 is also using a hard drive 
because that version of the operating system was sold as an upgrade kit and doesn l 
come as standard with any Amiga. 

Amig^ 1200 owners have a real problem. Workbench 3 is such a powerful boas: that n 
is not viable to run il from floppy drives. Install il on to a hard drive and il lakes up about 
4Mb Of space, and almost all ol that "system" is essential to the proper and productive use 
ol the Amiga. OK, it sounds like a cop-out. but after an afternoon of liying to use an Amiga 
with two floppy drives I wondered how on earth anyone new to the Amiga nanaget. 


DiskDoctof, what you netd is Dave 
HaynieV DiskSalv, Workbench 1,3 users 
will have to make do with vt .42 on Fish 
251 , which can only be controlled from t he 
CXI; the Twt of us can use the deeply won- 
derful y 2 „ which has not ah I write made it 
into the Fish collection, but probably will 
luve by the time you road this. Check out 
the high SOOti and low 900 s, or if you've go* 
a modem, pull it off your local bulletin 
board. 

Sadly, a virus checker must bo among 
your collection of essential tools. 
Although it i£ often awkward to have a 
vims checker running at all times, if you 
are putting lots of diskh into your drives 
you really should protect yourself, espe- 
cially if those disks did not originate in 

voui home.

UP TO DATE 

John Veldthuis' VirusChecker is by the 
far the most up to dflte system, and just 
about every batch of Fish disks lhal gets 
released contains a new version. You might 
also like to try Ceoig Hermann 1 s VirusZ. 
Any PD library should be able to supply 
you with the very latest versions of both of

An alternative to the M build your gwn boot disks" idea is to use a bailable RAM drive 


Commodore supplies one called RAD:, but there are 
shareware offerings a$ well, itie most welt known 
being RRamDisk (RRD:} on Fish disk 451. 

To use a bootable RAM drive you must alter your 
startup-sequence or user-startup to copy all She sys- 
tem tiles from your boot disk to the RAM drive, and 
then the next time you do a warm reboot (Ctrl- 
Amiga-Amiga) Ihe system boots from the RAM drive 
instead of floppy. The RAM drive becomes SYS:, 
and any program that is looking lor system hies will 
look in the RAM drive for them, leaving your floppy 
drived) tree for other uses. 

The disadvantage of using a RAM drive, of 
course, is that it consumes a megabyte □! memory, 
so iTs nol really viable unless you have 3Mb or 
more. 

The solution to all these problems is to buy a hard 
dnve. A glib statement maybe, because not every- 
one can afford one, but if the truth 

Even the smallest, cheapest hard drive you can 
find will make your Amiga a thousand times easier 
to understand because overnight the vast majority 
of those complaining and con I using requesters 
will disappear.

■ ’ t.s to load a file, the attempt will be lislfed 
m 'he SnoopDos Window, along with an 
i h K or Fail. Simply run Snoop Dew before 
running your errant program, and watch 
■■•r what the program was trying to do 
when it failed. 

]Mt was I making for a file called 
‘libscEimellysausage.library " and stopped 
Wter failing to find it, it dne^n't take an 
Hnstein to work out that the file 
smedysa usageJibrary rH is mining from 
Vtiur LIBS’ directory, 

rhene J s a another utility along these tines 
^iBed Dm! race. Written by Peter Sr lilt, Its 
™> l yet on a Fish disk, but it is well worth 
hunting down because it provides even 
more dues than SntiopDos, 

Funnily enough, DosTrace comes wLth 
-li cjmentaticm iii the Amigal iuide format, 
"•hfch is what 1 wanted to mention next, 
Jhi5 type of tex t flit? is interactive. You dick 
"ii key words to move around the lUtcu- 
rrient, and it makes reading te^t on the

Workbench 3 is compatible with 
AmigaGuide for mu I documents via the 


Multi View program, hut everyone else, 
including 1,3 users, can benefit from it too 
by getting hold of Fish H7il 

Something Workbench 3 users probably 
^von L have yet arv proper Monitor pro- 
grams for the new Commodore 1940 and 
I ^42 monitors. A small update has just been 
releas^i by Commodore bind wiJJ nodoubE 
be in the Fish collection soon. 

Look out for 1942Setup, which comes 
with new Overscan, IPrefs and S^tPatch 
commands as well as the new monitor 
serein modes. 

Jt s always best to look after your moni- 
tor, to make sore you don't leave it 
switched on and unattended for long peri- 
ods of time, which can result in an image 
being "‘burned' 1 into the soeun, 

There are many impressive and fon-to 
^■atch 1 screen savers" to choose trom F pro- 
grams which, after a specified period of 
time, either bfank the screen or put up some 
kind of moving display. My favourite is 
Markus Ulenseer's ASivamO on Fish 7%, 
but the Big Daddy of them all is Thomas 
Landspurg's SuperDark on Fish $58. 

RECOMMENDED 

Hard drive users with Workbench 2 or 
latter should not be without two programs 
I've recommended in a previous Amiga 
Survival Guide — Stefan Decker's 
Tool Manager on Ftsli £73, and,, if you 
haven't got a hard drive back-up utility, 
Den is GounelJc's A Backup on Fish 871. 

There are many, many more supeib took 
tp be found on the Amiga Library disks, but 
it's worth noting that the vast majority of 
PD authors have stopped supporting 
Workbench 13. If you an? still using 13, ore 
of the most important survival steps you 
can take is to upgrade your operating 

system. 

■ 

You will have to decide whether to stick 
with the machine you own and upgrade 
thflt, or sell -up and buy a more modern 
Amiga. 

And thai, as they say on the telly, is all 
we've time for. For another computer, the 
software I've talked about in this article, 
which is all of a very high ''pn>fessionar 
quality, will have cost many hundreds of 
pounds. We've spent about £2th£25 ail 
told, so even your wallet has 
survived.

Working with low memory 

Gone ana (he days when the Amiga came wi(h 51 2k of memory and the addition of anotoer

Nowaday® it comas with 2Mb minimum, and tike the 512k of oW, this 2Mb stilt isn't enouqh 
> )r senocis work because the applitaiians have grown with the Amiga.. 

TAiry applications, including shareware ones, require at least 1Mb of memory. By the iim* 
your Workbench has booted, which can easily consume 51 2k or mere depending on the oom- 
pie;,:ity 01 ^° ur Workbench, and you have run your application, you are left with well under a 

megabyte of free memory, which precludes multitasking or using any application Ihat requires 
lots of memory for data. 

Such applications include word processing, desktop publishing, video and graphics worts 
scanning,,, (he fist goes on and on. 

1 ^ 2-us all you have in your Amiga..,. Why? Even if you've got 1Mb. these days there is a 
ot of software you won't be able to use because Workbench and the application will consume 
slmost all of lhal memory, \$&mq only n few bytes for data. 

With 2Mb you'll be able to at least expenmenl with powerful software, ever if you might be 
wiled as to what you can achieve, 

There's not much you can do upon booting the Amiga lo conserve any amount of memory 
I -ii is worth conserving. Back hn the old days there was a lime hack that we used to forte 
v /or k uoneh to boot in two dolours instead ol four, (hereby saving a massive 32k of memory,

■P BW illd the SimRize range, fHrit 

■Rplmg appeared to- have had its day. 
#**wer, thanks to those illustrious 
hiles at GVP, 8-bit cun Id see a 
courtesy of D5S8+ - a hard- 
en d software combination which 
to Combine sampling, editing and 
if construction within a single interfere 
«h can slip into any one of its aforemen- 
r*d alter egos at you command. 

Kit hough multiple modules aren't 
| the same certainly can't be said for 
hardware. As far an connections are 
there's the usual array of twin 
phono-ins plus an additional mini 
fur a microphone - with standard cen- 
to (he Amiga via the parallel port. 
Vi? a particularly startling collection of 
p O options admittedly, however they are 
Complemented by a very stylish see- 
1 ■ .Jch plastic ease offering a unique wire 
; -w into the hardware itself. 

Although designer styling Is all very 
l*ce it’s the mind quality 1 that counts, and 
ir this department DSS8+ ls very impres- 
easily matching the best Efforts of alt- 
•Bmers in the 8-bit market. 

IMPRESSIVE 

Alas it's not all good new^ for GVP as 
tr^ accompanying software doesn't quite 
~va?ch the performance of its plug-in coun- 
terpart That's not to say it's had, in fact it’s 
pretty Impressive, nevertheless if does fall 
iritis the unfortunate trap of attempting to 
be alt things to all men - and indeed 
HomerL 

As a Consequence all the basics are cm 
hand while some of the more subtle aspects 
of editing and song construction have been 
overlooked. 

After highlighting the pitfalls it's only 
‘nr to mention a near perfect element of 
the system, namely the program's sample 
module. 

[hanks to this very well implemented 
aspect of live package you’re provided with 
» r - unrivalled degree of control and 
automation when recording samples. With 
*uch a glowing testament the sampler

module as perhaps the ideal place to start 
the tour. 

However before you can access any of 
the modules the program defaults to the 
sample list which is capable of showing up 
to 31 sample positions - whether they're 
stereo, mono or di ip-based tracker samples 

As well as a straight list of sound % it’s 
possible to play each sample wi thout access 
ing the editor. 3n addition you can also 
select the list podfiion for new samples - 
whether they be recorded or loaded. 

Accessing any sampler module is simply 
a matter of clicking on its icon in the tool 
panel - an element which is generic 
throughout the software - with various 
icons remaining active or passive depending 
on the editing mode in question. 

On access to the sampler the main screen 
will update displaying the various monitor- 
ing and recording presets. However on your 
first visit you're provided with the opportu- 
nity to fine-tune your particular combine-

tion of sampler and machine - 
a set-up which can then saved 
out as a default. 

Like any recording system the 
most important elements are the 
inputs whkh can vary between left or nght, 
stereo, mic or combined left and right pro- 
ducing a mono end result. 

Better still, both channels have indepen- 
dent gains - which can be set automatically 
if required - allowing live mixing of the 
incoming stereo. A* you'd expect, monitor- 
ing caters for both memo and stereo input 
as eitlvcr an oscilloscope or - mono only - 
spectrum analyser. 

For reasons best known to GYP, both 
displays can appear in three different sizes 
either within the main program window 
over a bLack - hi-fi play - backdrop. In the

case of (he spectrum analysis there's even 
an option to modify the Hz or resolution of 
the da ta on display. 

Assuming set-up and signal analysis is 
complete, all that remains is to set the sam- 


ple length - a useful addition if you plan to 
combine the new sample with an existing 
one or alternatively to ensure you don't 
starve your system of all its resources.

MUSIC 


Aside frnrn ^rnple length, most of iht 1 
remaining options concern the aLL-tmportont 
sample rale. This can 51,136 sps for 
mono and -IZjfcO tar stereo, the period - or 
system dock cydes and the samples pitch 
or note - shown as a note and octave 
combination. 

Although each has its own adjustment, 
thev're ill interdependent, For example, any 
changes m the rate automatically changes 
both the pitch and of course the period. This 
may seem a rather strange approach but it 
does mean samples can be adjusted allowing 
a generic pitch or sample rate ensuring com- 
patibility with other samples. 

Lastly comes our old friend the low-pass 
filter, which in the case of DSSS+ is pro- 
grammable allowing you to specify any one 
of 12ft settings. Alternatively you can leave 
the decisions to the software via an optional 
ju to- filtering feature. 

After setting up and checking the signal 
isn't being dipped or distorted via the moni- 
toring options, recording is simply a matter 
of hitting the button and waiting poised on 
\h.e left mouse button ready to initiate 
recording, 

SAMPLE LIST 

Once captured the program will ask for a 
title for the new sample and then add it to 
the sample list ready for editing or as an ele- 
ment within a tracker song, If you wish to 
continue sampling you simple select another 
slot in the list and repeat the process. 

When the sampling is complete, simply 
pick a sound and move on to the editor - or 
perhapn straight lo the tracker, if thf sample 
doesn't require am touch-ups. 

My only real complaint in the sampling 
department is the lack of an auto-record trig- 
ger which would kick in the record process 
whenever a predefined input level as 
detected - not essential admittedly, but quite 
useful on occasion... 

Moving on to the Editor Module life isn't 
quite as idvllic with relatively few feature 
in comparison to the better stand-alone sam- 
ple editors such as Aadition4, 

To be fair, all the basics such as ail and 
paste, looping, magnifying, freehand edit- 
ing, range marking, buffer control,, 
mo no /stereo and stereo /mono conversion 



amiliar 


IrorWirfl^g OUT af the hitiacivd ipeciot irflfrcU 


L I must admit 


to being very 
impressed L. 




await plus the essential sample merge. A 
reasonably impressive list, but it must be 
sflid some of the more subtle aspects of 
editing are at best difficult to achieve. 

Notables omissions include the inability 
to add additional workspace to a sample - 
a problem which tends to produce abrupt 
cut-offs w r hen one of the tew special effects 
are applied. 

Others include the inability to edit indt- 
^ i dual channels in a stereo simple plus the 
rather disappointing lack of sample 
sequencing, 

Even though direct point-and-dick isn't 
available for things like additional 
workspace and channel editing, it must be 
said that they can be generated by using 
the sample List as a multiple buffer - copy- 



ing and combining samples to produce the 
results you require. As ter playback there's 
the usual selection of play range, screen 
and the entire sample while markers and 
Imp points can be applied with the usual 
point-and -dick and then fine tuned with 
tape deck-style icon controls. 

Assuming your masterpiece is com- 
plete. savings out can be in either as a 
Sonix r IFF or Raw file in one, three or live 
octaves, And of course samples can be 
transferred to chip memory arid then used 
in the tracker directly - thereby being 
saved as an element within a song module. 

Even considering the ndd disappoint- 
ment in the software department, l must 
admit to being generally very impressed 
with a product that (liters groat sound 
quality phis a one-stop appro L =ich to sam- 
pling, editing and song construction. 

For those who take their sampling suri- 
ously l r d ha^'e no hesitation in recom- 
mending DSS8+, but it might be worth 
adding Audtiord to enhance editing 
and perhaps Med Pro5 for 
sequencing-

Like the editor, the tracker is froths; 
best described as basic rather (he 
spectacular. For those who've us# 
the innumerable tracker clones aw 
able both commercially and in the £ 
this one will be very much home fror 
home. 

Like the vast majority it boasts fo. 
tracks which employ a block sysir 
with which to construct tunes. Eac 
block consists of 64 potential samp 
locations across each of the foL 
tracks. 

At each of these points a samp 
can be added along with one of eig~ 
special effects which either direct 
affect the sound or alternatively al> 
the entire sequence - a prime examr 
being volume changes or perhaps L 
lump option which allows the resl 
the block lo be skipped, leaping 
directly to I he block of your ehoice. 

Llke the editor and sampler, to 
tracker boasts direct access to tt 
sample list via a small requester. T 
add a new sample to the song simp 
select the sound, pick a track and pi; 

In the notes, either via the Amiga key 
board or alternative by activating ii- 
programs Midi input option whir 
allows dipped input from the comfort c 
a real keyboard. 

Of course you'll require a suitab 
keyboard and a Midi interface befor 
the leafure can be applied, but if yc 
have the necessary hardware ih 
option works very well Indeed, prove: 
ing a big improvement on the bes 
efforts of its Qwerty counterpart 

USER DEFINED 

Another pleasant touch is the sete 
lion of a multiple input requester allot* 
mg any sample to be replicatei: 
throughout the entire track, wilt 
a user-defined offset for spacing 
ideal for drum tracks and genera 
percussion. 

As for the samples themselves 
octaves can he adjusted by clicking o 
the mini keyboard icon to toggle lhe f 
accordingly. Moving around the front 
is achieved by a combination c 
adjustable block counters end the 
large scroll bar on the left of the 
screen - which incidentally Is usee 
throughout the software to adjus 
numerically parameters so no tedioL 
typing guaranteed* 

The songs themselves can be savec 
out either as a simple sequences, a 
module for loading into other tracker* 
or alternatively a standalone run-lirm 
module which can be executed direct!, 
from the CLI or its icon. 

In short, the DSS8+ tracker is fim 
for the beginner but perhaps a lithe 
limited for the old guard who ‘w 
already invested time in MED and the 
other more advanced trackers.

This months 8-bit sampling extravaganza 
continues as Paul Austin offers sound 
advice on Technosound Turbo 2

EFFECTS iEiLIItE SYSTfft EE?HH m TIH 



Ifcf fwi bat 
rtd f J jfpc 


W ith the arrival of GVp"s 
DSS8 + r documented else- 
where in the mag, is there a 
place lor yet another 8-bit sampling system? 
The answer to that is really dependent on 
* has you're 1 looking for 

For those purely in teres ted in sound 
: Jjlity the answer is probably no. However 
there s more to sampling than ju&t quality 
and if you're in the market for fun and flexi- 
bditv TT2 is certainly in (he running thanks 
i an impassive array of fun effects alung- 
I -v power features such as direct-to-haid- 
recording, 

Like the opposition, TT2 attempts the att- 
ffHUe approach, with sampling, editing and 
H>ng constfuctkm all part of the package- On 
r h l" hardware side, little if anything has 
hange from the original release, with the 
sail le plug-n module as before offering two 
kCA/phano-ins on the rear providing either 
stereo or mono input - alas there's no mini 
.k k input for a mic as found on DSSS+. 

With the cmphasU heavily laden towards 
the software, now's probably a good time to 
hxsk at the power features that the program 
provides. Those who are familiar with the 
» TLgirval software will have no doubt already 
-potted the most obvious change - namely 
:he interfere itself. 



Courtesy of a complete re-design r the 
program n fiw offers customised pulkltmnb 
across the entire length of the main screen, 
and it' s from here where you can get your 
first taste of the new features. 

For many the most important of these has 
to be a feature unique to TT2, namely direct- 
h>ndisk recording, an option which as far as 3 
.im aware is unique in the world of M?it 
'Hirnpting 

Thanks to this innovation, memory 
restrictions can be a thing of the pant - 
-i--<suining, of course, you have a hard disk 
attached. 

Not only dues this mean you can record 
md play individual bits but also sample 
sequences, thank* to another new feature, 
namely hard disk sequencing. Thanks to this 
option you can append already sizeable 
samples into huge productions all con- 
trolled by a special, sequencer built in to ihe 
main program. 

Like DS5£+, TT2 also boasts a tracker 
clone as part of its repertoire. Alas the 
tracker provided isn't exactly one of the high 
points of ilie package, offering only five spe- 
cial effects and fairly limited potential even 


when compared to the somewhat less than 
advanced alternative within DSSb+. 

Again hke its counterpart TT2 provides a 
modicum of Midi support with the ability to 
play a LI four available tracks from a Midi 
keyboard - although each sound must he 

assigned to a separate 
channel. Obviously a 
suitable Midi key- 
board and interface 
are essential 
Although TT2 suf- 
fers quite badly as far 
as sampling and its 
tracker are concerned, 
it nevertheless scores 
well when it comes to 
editing, offering the 
majority of the fea- 
tures which DS5S+ 
managed to overlook 
or at least do its best to 


hide. In addition to cut and paste, splice t 
add workspace and so on, TT2 also boasts a 
much wider range of effects such as variable 
delay, variable echo, variable synthesis plus 
more traditional edit options like maximise, 
soften, amplify r fedHn/ouf ami so an. 

In keeping with tradition, the program 
also provides a variety of real time effects, 
which as the name suggests take a li ve sig- 
nal and process it - you can choose from 
echo, delay, phasing, pitch up /down, 
sweeps, synthesis or ramping 

Alas every sampling system Has made an 
unspeakable mess of res I time effects an the 
past and TT2 ss no exception. Aside from 
being mildly amusing for a few seconds 
they're almost entirely useless thanks to the 
horrendous amount of background noise 
which accompanies the processed signal - a 
feature which again highlights the lim na- 
tions of the attendant hardware. However, 
if you feel the need to exploit the option, 


real time effects do have the advantage of 
presets for each effect which can be saved 
out as a default. 

In a similar vein to the above comes Fun 
lime* - but unlike the real time offerings. 
Fun Time effects are all predefined and can- 
not be edited by the user. 

To give you a taste of what Fun Time is 
all about, the titles alone should be more 
Ilian enough to explain the basic principles; 
Pinky and Funky? Sex Change; Deep Sea 
Diver; Alien; Top Gun: Chopper: Dark 
Vader; Bruno; Awful the Duck and the 
Unforgettable Nightmare on Oa k Street.. 

As you've probably guessed, f'T2 is 
much more of a fun package than a serious 
attempt at getting Lite- best from h-bit sam- 
ples. As mentioned earlier, record quality 
doesn't match that of DSSB+ and isn't likely 
to with the existing hardware. 

The tracker again is a little disappointing 
but it must he said that the editor is mure 
than adequate. Combine this with the 
unique ability to record and play direct to 
and from a hard disk and it could have its 




Upgrade paths 

As you've probably guessed, all refinements fire strictly 
saftware-basecJ and as a consequence Mew Dimensions are 
offering ere fairly attractive upgrade path for existing users. 

Tb§ new software and manual can be yours for just £15 
plus £1 for postage and packaging - however proof of pur- 
chase must be provided. 

Alternatively the company are offering a sollwa re-only 
deal lo new users - which includes the manual - for £39.99, 
If however yog decide to go the whole hog and splash out 
on Hie complete system Including hardware, the price leaps 
to a rather alarming £49.99.

W hen a program i* delay «a as 
long as Brilliance (it was 
originally supposed to ship 
in November 1992) people's expectations 
have time to build exponentially . 

Usually a long delay means that it will 
either be a buggy disappointment, or an 
incredible feat of software engineering 
that was well worth the wait !'m happy to 
report that Digital Creations' Brilliance is 

an example of the latter. 

Brilliance is billed as "the new standard 
in Amiga paint and animation in millions 
ol colours". The program is so fast and 
flexible that it makes its Amiga predeces- 
sors feel like the old Doodle! program on 
lh£ Caimnodoit 64 

What maki*; Brilliance special? Is it w* 
full AGA support? The outstanding ani- 
mation capabilities? The multiple 
Undo/ Redo feature? Well, yes, all of those 
mines heir make it (sorry, have to say it) 


The future for 
Digital Arts’ 

long-awaited paint 
package Brilliance 
is so dazzling that 
Denny Atkin had 
to don his shades 
for this world 
exclusive review 


brilliant, but its biggest advantage over 
other pa im programs is speed: The pro- 
gram is more than five times fester than 
Deluxe Taint IV AGA at many operations 

In the Brilliance box you'll find three 
disks, a 175-page manual, a set of wrral 
number labels and a hardware dongle 
key. Before you can get started, you n 
need to enter your serial number in the 
Brilliance program icons to key the pro- 
gram to your dongle. 

There an? actually two Brilliance pro- 
gram files: Brilliance, the register-based 
version that supports up to 256 colours, 
and True Brilliance, the true-colour version 

that supports HAM modes- 

The interfaces of the two versions are 
nearly identical with only minor changes 


c\ particular tnmrc isn t 
ate to that graphics mode. The third d 
includes a few sample and tutorial [ 
tures, as well as a number of exam 
colour palettes. 

The program will run on all Ami| 
whether they're running Workbench 
2.04, 2.1 or 3.0- Although it supports 
AC A chips, it will work tine cm ong 
chipset and enhanced chipset machine 


on your keypad (except, rtwwusiy, on ».* 
A600), so you can group tools that you 

commonly use together. 

[f you're moving to Brilliance from | 
□Paint, you'll be happy to know that the 
keyboard equivalents for the gadgets are 
the same as those for their D Paint ■ 

counterpatls. 

Three buttons 

For instance, you can get nd ot the con- 
trol panel by hitting FiO. An easier way to 
g^t Ihe panel oil! of the way is to us# the 
spacebar, but by far the best way is to buy 
a three-button mouse and take advantage 
of Brilliance's middle mouse button sup- 

port , . 

It's easy to paint when you can hit the 

middle button, select a tool, hit the middle 

button again, and then hit the left button 

to paint, with one band staying on the 

mouse and the other free to hold 9 bever- 

age of pur choice. 

Although ibis panel Interface may take 
a while to adjust to, it works very well in 
practice, and you don't have to deal with 
the coolers of your picture being covered 
bv control panels and a title bar. 

' And If vou want to edit your picture 


gets at the left, and 24 paint and palette 
lool gadgets to the right of those- 

Thirty gadgets labeled with little sym- 
bols might seem overwhelming at first, 
especially considering that many of them 
have up to throe different toggleable func- 
tions and no labels, but Brilliance provides 

real-time help updates. 

A small blue box at the right side of the 
control panel always displays the function 
of the gadget under the mouse pointer, so 
you'll never select the anti-aliasing gadget 
in an effort to create a polygon. 

You'll need to get used to using the 
right mouse button in a non-standard wav

ART! 


Getting things moving 

The real fun comes with Brilliance's AmmlBmshes, These are brushes consisting of a series o! trames which 
can be used to draw with an object that changes as you paint it across ihe screen, stamping a changing object 
down on an animation, 

You can create animbrushes by picking (hem up from an animation (more on animations in [usl a moment), 
or by morphing one brush lo another. 

While Brilliance's Morph sheet isn't in the same league as what you'd find in a product like Morph Plus or 
ImagaMaster, it does produce significantly better results than DPaint. Brilliance morphs brushes in Iwo dimen- 
sions, while DPaim morphs in one dimension and squashes in another. 

The Twee riing menu is similar to DPaint's Move requester and is used for moving an object between a 
slatting and ending point on an imago, or more commonly for moving objects in animations. 

You can type in starling and ending X, Y P and 2 positions and rotations for a brush, or use She Adjust gad- 
gel to manua-ly place the object on the screen. 

The Adjust gadgel takes the irial-and-error out of object placement and makes creating smooth, precise 
object movements a snap. 

Unique to Brilanee are some dramatic special effects available on the Tween menu: You can assign differ- 
ent percentages of opacity to a brush at the start and end of an in-between movement $o that object will 
appear to fade in or out of the image as it moves; you can also have objects leave trails behind them, and 
choose to have those traits automatically decay, leaving a comet-like effect 

The Ease controls lei you chars ge the speed Df an obfed a$ it moves; for instance, you can make il appear 
to move faster as it gets closer. Brilliance lets you control Ihe level of Ease in the X, Y, and Z planes 
individually. 

You car also use Ease to control opacity level at particular points of Ihe movement. The Lens control lets 
you change the viewing angle of the camera pointing at the brush, sirriFlar to 0 Paint’s Perspective feature. 

Bril lance is as good a 2D animation program as it \$ a paint program. It he£ a full set of VCR-like animation 
controls and all Ihe animation features of DPaint (well, except for the LightTable onion-skin leature, which was 
so slow as lo be of questionable usefulness anyway). 

Whan it comes to animation editing, Brilliance packs incredible power. You can copy entire ranges ol 
frames irom one spot in an animation to another, 

Even better you can load multipie animations, appending one after another. Animations can tie saved as a 
series ol individual frames (in 24-bit IFF if saving from TrueBrilliance), or in ANIM Op-5 or Op-8 format, The 
Op-5 Format is compatible wilh older Amiga software and provides the best compression, but Op-B provides 
faster playback, especially on accelerated Ami gas. 



ujj 


and kerp the control panel visible, that's 
no problem. You can use the cursor keys 
to physically move the canvas around, so 
you can place the bottom of the picture 
[usl above the top of the control panel. 

Screen resolutions (and the number of 
colours available in those resolutions) will 
vary depending upon which graphics 


chips you have in your Amiga. 
Resolutions up to b 40 x 512 are supported 
on original chip sel machines, up to 1 ,, 2 $[) 
x 512 on ECS Ami gas, and up to l r 28 D X 
512 and SlXJ x 6 U 0 on AGA machines, 

If you're running Amiga DOS 2-1 or 
later, Brilliance uses the ASL screen modes 
requester Co select resolution which 


means you can even use the really bizarre 
modes such as lfiO x l r 024. 

Four different levels of overscan are 
supported, and Brilliance supports 
scrolling canvases Larger than the screen, 
the size limited only by available memory. 

One particularly handy feature is 
Brilliance's support for multiple buffers. 


Along with a main canvas and a swap 
screen (a fa DPaint), Brilliance also Lets you 
open any number id additional buffers, 
again limited only by available memory, 

I he only restriction is that all the 
buffers need to be the same size and 
colour depth. This is very handy for creat- 
ing collage effects by cutting and pasting 
elements from a variety of pictures,, and 
for trying different effects on various 
scrams to see which ones you like best. 

OK, you've got your canvas alt set up 
and your paints mixed, now it's time to 
create some artf Brilliance provides all the 
tools you'd expect from a professional

A tale of two versions 

As mentioned earlier, there are two versions of Brilliance included, each on its own 
floppy The register version ot Brilliance supports all the non- HAM colour modes avail- 
able on your Amiga, including Extra Haltbrite. TryeBritliance supports Harrfi (the orig- 
inal six-bit HAM specification) and Hama (the newer 8-bit HAM mode Sound on the 
A12D0 and A40QQ). 

TrueBrillianee will load regular IFF pictures with any number ot colours, HAM pic- 
tures. IFF24 true-colour files, and DC7V graphics. It will save pictures In HAM and 
IFF24 formats. 

Register 01-rhlli^.nc-e- will only load and savo standard IFF pictures with up to 25c 
colours. This means that you can load Brilliance pictures into TmeBrillianca (they'lt be 
converted to Ham), but you can't bring T rueBhllianee pictures back into Brilliance with- 
out using a thind-party conversion program such as ADPro or Rend24 to map ihe pic- 
ture down to 256 or fewer colours,

pain! program, along with some interest- 
ing new painting modes. 

Many pointing tools offer different 
inodes Click once on the Draw tool with 
the Left mouse button to choose a con- 
nected freehand line, dick again to chouse 
a filled freehand shape, or one more lime 
to choose freehand doited draw, 

Sonic tools have a settings menu panel 
that pops* up when you click the right 
mouse button on them. For instance, click- 
ing the right button on the Rectangle tool 
brings up a panel that lets you choose 
whether rectangles should he sized cor- 
neT-tMOnier or cen ter- to-eomer, 

if you've used other Amiga paint pro- 
gram*. you'll find the drawing tools work 
as you'd expect, but ma ny have additional 
teal u res. For instance, along with the stan- 
dard curved line r you can also choose to 
draw a four-point Bezier curve. 

Airbrush 

As usual Ihe airbrush tcwL will spray 
single pixels or splatter a custom brush 
onto the screen, but it will also spray 
down paint in the shape of the current 
brush,, using it a* a mask. 

Ah ys.ni experiment with the tools -and 
do goofy things to your picture - you'll 
come to appreciate Brilliances 
Undo /Redo feature. 

The program will undo multiple opera- 
tions, up to the size of a user-definable 
Undo buffer. So you can r for instance, 
dick Undo three times to remove the last 
three painting steps- 

If you've ever done something you 
regretted to a picture and then acciden- 
tally placed one 1 more pise! on the screen, 
ruining your chances to undo the first 
mistake,, you'll realise why this is a great 
feature. 

In addition to the usual Colour, Mix, 
Smooth. Smear and Cycle drawing modes 
you'll find some more sophisticated addi- 
tions. Fini will *]ter the chroma (colour) 
content of areas you're painting over; this 
is handy for colou rising pictures, and can 
produce spectacular results in 
TrueBrilliance- 

Cnlnurise Ls simitar, but it changes the 
colour content of areas that contain 
Chroma information, without effecting 
black r greys, or white- 

Biighten and Darken are self-expkmu-

tory. Two dither modes are handy for 
screening areas of the canvas, and for 
overlaying areas with a dithered pattern 
that allows the paint under to show 
through the pattern. 

Brilliance also supports transparency 
values of 0 to 100 per cent; you can create 
ghostly images, or *et a high transparency 
for a brush you stamp onto the back 
ground of an image to give it a distant 
hazy effecL 

Negative mode changes every colour So 
its opposite, giving the appearance of a 
photographic- negative- i’ve created *urm 
spectacular effect with this mode, I onh 
wish Digital had included one of the most 
useful modes trom their DC F\ Paint pro- 
gnim. namely Rub-Through. 

The text tool supports both bitmapped 
(normal find Colour Font) and 
Compugraphic outline font 1 '. Unlike 
DPaint you don't t> r pe text directly on an 
image, but rather into a text gadget. 
Brilliance creates a brush containing the 
text which you can stamp ort the image. 

Although this Can be quite tedious for 
multipit 1 lines of text, it does make it easy 
to use Brilliance's brush effects to enhance 
your text's appearance. 

Brilliance makes working with custom 
brushes a pleasure. Right-clicking on the 
Brush tool to bring up the Brush menu 
displays eight brush w r e 1 1 s, boxes that can 
store a brush or ftnim Brush until you 
need it next. 

You can grab a number Lit images from

,r ’ 1 -' picture, store them in the brush wells, 
d then select them individually to 
-imp down on another picture. Picking 
up brushes is a snap thanks to BrilliancV^ 
iuto BG future, which wilt treat the 
■'Iciiir around your brush as the back- 
ground colour if the four corners of fhe 
rush are all the same colour. 

That way you can pick up a brush off 
Jn orange surface without picking up the 
Mngc, ever if the selected background 
- 'lour is black. Brushes can be saved to or 
fcwded from the system clipboard; 1 used 
riris leature to transfer brushes from 



Brilliance to TrueBrillmnce and to DPaint 
IV AGA 

In keeping with the program's DPaint 
compatibility, you'll find the usual assort- 
ment of bend, outline, and warp operators 
for modifying your brush's size and 
shape. 

Brilliance is so packed with features 
ihat [ could probably fill this entEre issue 
with one long review of it, Suffice to say 
that if You've used DPaint., imagine a pro- 
gram that has a similar set of features, but 
does everything faster and with more enn- 
<rui and flexibility. 

r 

Like DPaint AGA, TrueBri 13 iance sup- 
ports loading 1 FF24 pictures. But when 
you load sueh a picture mto DPaint, it gets 
converted into a Hamft version and much 
of the detail and colour information is lost. 

When you load a 24 -bit picture into 
True brilliance, the program keeps a full 
24-hit (lb million colours!) copy Ln mem- 
ory if you're short of RAM. you can 
choose to store a 15-bit, 32,763-coiour rep- 
resentation in memory instead), 

Although you're viewing it in HAM. 
complete with the occasional subtle on- 
screen fringing, you can save the picture 
tn full 1 4- bit form a losing no detail or 
colour data, and with no fringing present 
in the 24-bit representation. 

This is handy for doing simple touch* 

□ P work or adding text to 24-bat images. 
While DPairit and Brilliance share a simi- 
lar interface for creating colour-fill range*, 
with Brilliance you on have up to 32,768 
colours in a range. 

Most of the other features are more 
powerful a* well, You can create Stencils 


Dodgy dongle 

T'is doriglG key plugs Into your second controller port and doesn't pass through the 
part, meaning you'll need to power off your Amiga to install it if you normally keep a 
joystick plugged in. 

It will work on the end of Scala's dongle, but if you're a Reel 3D 2.0 us$r you'll have 
to swap dongles when you change programs. 

Also, the dongle doesn't fit in ttie AGOO's pod, so if you have Commodore's small- 
est Amiga you'll need to purchase a joystick extender cable and plug the dongle into 
that. 

Unless you never use your second port for anything el&e. you’ll find the liny dongle 
to be a pain la keep track of. If Brilliance weren't so good. I d stick with DeluxePaini IV 
AGA Simply because ol this inconvenience, but the power of Brilliance is enough to 
make the dongle loterable- 


m Brilliance not only by choosing specific 
cobum or drawing the stencil manually, 
but also by lassoing a specific range of 
colours on your image, 

The Variance Settings let you include 
any m Inure within a certain percentage of 
your selected colour's hue, saturation, and 
value In a stencil, making it easy, for 
example, to select ail skin tones in your 
stencil 

Brilliance's Magnify mode is more easily 
adjustable - you can slide the magnify win- 
dow to the right or left depending on how 
much of the original tough- you need to see, 
and zoom in and out using gadgets on the 
bar at the edge of die magnify window, 

And while DPaint provides some con- 
trol over printing values. Brilliance gives 
you tire futt suite of Preferences -style 
printer control gadgets, so you cari select 
seeing, dithering, density, smoothing, and 
other settings without having to flip back 
to the Workbench- 

DCTV 

There's sbEl more to recommend this 
program. If you have a DCTV, for 
instance, you can use the register version 
of Bril fiance to assemble still frames into 
DCTV animations. TrueB rill lance will 
load DCTV pictures and convert them to 
24-bit format so you can edit tlrem in 
HAM mode. 

- ve saved the best feature for last, 
though -Brilliance's speed. Both the regis- 
ter version of Brilliance and True Brilliance 
are hlazingly fast. 

Other programs slow to a crawl in 
HAM mode, but TnieBrilliance in H-imS 
feels as fast a* DPaint does when you're 
only using 32 colours. 

The Real-time Prevfew Mode feature 
actually draws effects on the fly r so von 
can see what the results will he before vou 
stamp down a rectangle in r say, Negative 
mode. 

And you'll be amazed at how quickly 
you can mote custom brushes asm the 
screen. While DPaint may update a brush 
two or three times a second fat best) as 
you move it in HstmS mode, the brush 
smoothly follows your pointer move- 
ments in both Brilliance programs, no 
matter what mode you're in. 

Operations like fills are dramatically 
faster - a gradient fill with highlight took 
a minute and 52 seconds using DPaint 4,6, 
hut only 42 seconds in Brilliance. The pro- 


gram isn't without a few omissions and 
flaws, It would have been nice to see 
' magic wand" colour selection like in 
Photoshop and ImageFX, and a colour- 
mixing area like DPaint and Digital 
Creations' own DCTV Paint have. 

Although the 175-page manual has a 
well-written,, thorough reference section 
that will answer any question you have 
about a particular feature, many of live; pro- 
gram s major features are glossed over and 
ignored in the too-short tutorial section. 

And as mentioned early on, the inabil- 
ity to bring FrueBrlf fiance pictures back 
into the register version Brilliance will be 
a pain for those who don't own something 
like ADPro. 

There'S no support for display on third- 
parry 24-bLi graphics cards, although vou 
can save 24-bit images and use the software 
included with your card to display them,, 
And of course, there's that darned dongle. 

These minor gripes aside, if vou use 
your Amiga for professional graphics, or 
Amiga art is your favourite game, you'll 
want Brilliance, 


Nothing out there can match its feature 
set, and u's the one paint program I've 
used that's so fast that tl never gets In the 
way of your creativity. Digital Creations' 


biggest problem with Ibis program is likely 
to be figuring out what they could possibly 


add to come

TECHNICAL HELPS 


Beginners’ questions go/ore th/s month 
with advice on dodgy drives } A 1 200 
compatibility, using CoverDisks and more 



RAM and 
printers 

My sons have an Amiga 500 and a 
Citizen Swift 9 colour printer The 
frnnfor manual recommends that the 
printer driver should be Epson FX- 
350 oi LX-850. The printer driver they 
ire using is £psonX[CBM MPS- 
1 250]. Is this correct and would either 
of the other drivers give a dearer or 
‘aster printout, especially cotour 
graphics? 

I enclose a copy ol the DIP switch 
citings which I set for them. The 
0hn?er does work but would they be 
getting the bad results with the above 
driver and enclosed DIP switch 
settings? 

After using Bars and Pipes Junior, 
on your free disk, my older son 
wishes to upgrade to 2Mb. I have 
'ead all the advertisements and 
notice there are two choices. One is 
lo add to (he existing 1/2 Mb upgrade, 
(he other to lit a comp fete 1.5Mb 
board. 

I notice (hat to odd to the existing 
1 ; 2Mb upgrade il must be four x 
RAM-chip lype or not exceeding 9em 
■n length. I do not know if the existing 
hoard is 4 x RAM-chip but it has four 
chips and measures B.5crn by 9cm so 
would this be OX? The advertisement 
also states thai both expansion 
boards requrre Kick start 1.3. Is this 
tha same as Workbench 1.3? 

G Cook, Kent 

The printer output can bo improved 
by using the EpsonX driver which is 
supplied with your Amiga, Generally 
speaking, this driver should he used 
with 9-pin printers, using Epson emu- 
lation, white the EpsonG is used with 
24-pin printers. The settings that you 
sent are ting, so it is just a matter of 
changing the driver.. 

By the. way you have described 
your existing memory expansion, it 
has four RAM chips so it should be 
fine with the l Mb trapdoor expansion 
that you have seen, lAfortffrench is the 
front-end of the Amiga's operating 
system, the part that allows 
Jhe machine to be controlled fry 
a user - in other words , the window 
and icon environment that we alt 
use, p 

Kickstad is a ROM chip that con- 
tains most of the routines used by the 
Workbench. Therefore r tf you have a 
Workbench 1.3 machine, you witl also 
have KiOkstart 1.3. 

The Megaboard, which connects to 
the trapdoor I /2Mb expansion, is 
compatible with both Kickstart 1.3 
and 2 but not wvfh Amfgas that have 
1Mb chip RAM, 

tt Is available from Evesham 
Micros who can be contacted on 0336 
7 65500 and who have a technical 
supped line on 0386 769403 L

it isn' t. Please help! 

Also, in issue f>2 (July), you received a 
letter from David King of Markham stating 
a problem he had with his MFS 1270 
printer. This Ls easily wived as I did with a 
quick call to Commodore helpline. Just 
alter die DIP switch number 6 from what 
the reference manual says.

As a reader and a subscriber 
since issue number one, I was 
interested in the Idler from 5

of the Cribbage program to which he refers

ItITSC bug again 

F The enclosed disk contains a far 
better answer to Mr Ricketts's 
problem with thy old 
Workbench 1.3 hug - the one that causes a 
PAL machine to bwt NTSC every ten or so 
attempts - than the offhand one you gave 
him. It s the program NoPALReset 

Mrike it the first cal] in a WBl .3 startup- 
sequence and it avoids the time wasted 
grinding all the way through a long startup 
to finish with the wrong format, 

it's only 236 bytes long so there's room in 
even a very 5 tight c directory. 

The disk? Oh that's, your No $ Qun 90). 
Fve copied it for you as I get the impression 
you haven’t seen a]] your own CoverDisks. 

Perhaps it would he worth winnowing 
through them and repeating a few of the 
"can't do without It" programs - there 
haven't been so many lately!

Guru meditation 

I have recently purchased an ASfrO and. as a complete beginner, am keen to work my 
way through the Workbench and other tutorials supplied. However. I constantly get 
software failures which makes this extremely slow and frustrating. 

I was advised by foe Amiga helpline to buy a new mouse, which I did. but this has 
had no effect. 

Gan you give me any advice to stop Ibis happening every lew minutes as I am 
close to giving up. 

Lorraine Smith, Stockport 

By the sound of things, you may have a virus on one or more of your disks. To erad- 
icate you need to use a virus checker such as or Zero Virus, BootX or 
Virus _ Checker which are available from all good PD libraries It is vital to check at! 
your disks to be sure of killing it off completely- 

Viruses are malicious programs that are self repiicating and very annoying. They 
are written by sad people who have nothing better to do with their iives than find 
new ways to freaf virus checkers in order to do such things crash other people s 
computers and wipe their hard drives. 

ft having checked for viruses, you stitt find that your A800 keeps on crashing 
then it Is in need of repair.

Cine Morph 
Junior fix 

We gave away Cine Morph Junior with 
the August issue of Amiga Computing 
and despite much brain-wracking, we 
could not imd any way to make it run on 
Workbench 1,3 machines. 

However, one of our readers, John 
Cook from Portsmouth, has lotind a fix 
to make it compatible. 

□nee the program has been de- 
archived onto its own disk, the asl 
library must be deleted to make 
Cine Morph junior run, I n order to do 
this, boot horn your Workbench disk, 
open a shell window then enter the fol- 
lowing line:

may have a vims in my computer or is there 
another reason tor my difficulty? 

MrR Clarke, Doncaster 

F lhis has to he the most frequent 
problem encounter^ by our read 1 - 
ers. Every Thursday, when we man 
the CoverDisk hotline, a stream of battled 
readers ask us how to unarchive programs 
from ourdfsks. 

if you have just read the previous answer, 
you will know M the problem is caused by a 
Kickstart bug In alt Amigas running 
Workbench 2 or higher. 


Norm a tty, we 

wouldn't include two 
prohtams in AC AS that 
are so similar but we fefl 
that in tois instance it 
would be highly 
beneficial L 

in order to use our 
GavefDiSk. on Amigas 
running Workbench 2 
higher it is necessary to 
write enable ft (so that the tab covers the 
hole) before using it to boot your Amiga. 

We do. in tact print a special panel on 
the Getting Started page about de-archiv- 
ing. This includes the above information , hut 
it is surprising how many peopie fati To mad 
it 

Of course toe root of the problem lies 
with Commodore so if you find the dug as 
annoying as we do, drop them a line. Too 
never know, they may decide to fin it one

Normal^ this clears up after two days n 
to ihe computer and I thought it might £ 
connected to Ihe room temperature as 
only the monitor that seems lo be atfedea 
My lirst though! was that using a 
computer over long hours coukl affect 
memory even when given the boot up tin j 
My Workbench is v2 ROMs (37J7S) 
Should l gel a 1Mb expansion to upgre 
to 2Mb or is it related to Ihe monitor? 

I get this problem during the sumrw | 
when the weather is very hot and soflv 
limes when the road department are wot- 
mq outside the house so now how can I ge 
mis problem sorted out? The monitor wa 
serviced si x months ago and hasn t be* 
too much of a problem 

Mr G Barr. ftwr 

ijd The monrtof 

old and despite too fact that yo. \ 
have had it serviced, it is probab 
pm toe way oof. There's not an awful lot yo 
can do other than boy a new one. 



Moving along the upgrade path 


I've had my A500 lor around four years now, mainly using 
it (or wordprocessing - (bough I admit to hijacking my 
brother $ Alien Breed for days on end. 

However* though programmers are still trying to sup- 
port the ageing Workbench 1.3. I'm contemplating moving 

- ibe Workbench 2 print spooler on (he July CoverDisk 
ts the clinch. 

Like most people. I've spent almost as much on addi- 
tions as I did on the original unit. This means I'm quite 
reluctant to lork out for an A 1200 and start again - it 
doesn't gven have a battery backechup clock as standard, 
never mind a hard drive! 

An internal ROM upgrade appears to be my best (and 
cheapest) option, but I'm a little unsure about a few things 
and can't find exact answers in bade issues □! your maga- 
zine. I'm quite altached lo my hair and 1 hope you can 
save me leafing it out , 




To use Workbench 2. is Ihe Workbench upgrade 
chip and disk pack all I need or do I also have iq 
buy the Agnus and Denise chips found m my brother's 
A500 Plus? My current chips are: Agnus ECS 6372A (still 
at 1/2Mb due to a phobia of soldering irons) and Denise 
STD 3362. 


_ Memory stands at 2Mb via a series ol 1Mb and 
Z sis* trapdoor expansions. In the adverts for these 
boards (and others like them! I see lhal lhey require 
Kickstart 1.3 and point the reader in the direction of a 
ROM swapper. 

When 1 upgrade to 2.04. is Ihe extra memory compati- 
ble whan I'm using it or have they just omitted an "or 
above" in the ad? I can't see why the memory should be 
redundant but l can't afford to nsk it as even 2Mb is limit- 
ing - there's plenty oi space in my GVP though. 

_ Adding up the prices of whatever chips 1 need (and 
possibly paying for installation) would it be cheaper 
to buy a 2Mb Plus (or even an A 1200, which should be 
down in price by thg lime I save up) and use my current 
machine as a quaint door wedge** 

Somehow. 1 think the idea of simply swapping 
machines with my brothers wilt not go down too well (bul 
I'vb thought about it. believe me), so any advice or sug- 
gestions on these questions will be appreciated 

fan Hiles, Tyne $ Wear 


in order to use a ROM sharer to its fuff, you wiii 
need to buy a Super Denise chip 1,8373) - the 





Agnus chip fhaf you already have is fine Bear in mmo 
mat as well as the sharer Jteeff, you will also need to buy 
a Kickstart 2 ROM. The total (or Ibis little tof is likely to be 
in the region of Zi 00. 

if you chose lake Ibe ROM sharer path, the add- 

tional trapdoor RAM that you have siWd not 

cause any problems 

The A500 Plus is currently available tor around 

£200 and an additional 1Mb of RAM would set you 

bask about £30. The GVP hard drive that you have i#iVJ 
work with Sxith the A50Q arid A500 Pius. 

Add 10 that the cost of a 1-3 ROM sharer and it starts Is 
took very expensive when compared with the A 1200, par- 
ticularly when you compare fhe specifications. The Plus is 
not exactly slate of the art and you mmtf he defter off buy- 
ing an At 200 which already has 2Mb ot RAM a faster pro- 
cessor and superior graphics. 

Although at first sight this looks like the most expensive 
option, hear in mind that the A1200 now costs £300 an o is 
oniy likely lo cost £ 100 more when bought with a built-in 
hard drive. When this outlay is offset against the sate of 
your e.wsfjng system, we fhinfc this is the twsf option.

PROGRAMMING 


T his is the Amos product that's 
perhaps been more hotly 
debated and more eagerly 
** -= i ttrd than just about any other. The 
■ing i> that Amos as a development svs- 
^ rr - was pretty much perfect, and the only 
missing from Pro - apart from a 
good bug- fixed version - was the 
canpiler, 

\ow don't get me wrong, I know i r m 
■hv ays banging on abonl how Pro is buggy 
Put that's not because it r s completely no 
| ’ i No nu no. It's more that it's at the 
that Amos Was a few years ago when 
* hnsi came out. It just needs a tor of use 
all the bugs in the mew features cam 
be .Tuned not. 

Vou see Amos Pro is actually still the 
mate. Amn-s program you know and love, 
hr! there 's been a lot of augmentation, and 
* U take a while tor the code to settle down

all die additions have been used a lot 
iil the bugs ironed out. 

Bui it will happen, and truth be told Pm 
to start using Pro a lot mom’ now, I 
■w [ said it wouid lake a while to make 
witch from Amos Classic^ and I know 
still Have that to fall back on should Pro 
me down. 

Bui it r s time to start having a little faith 
the new program, and helping to iron 
a .■ bugs rather than just sitting hen’ grip- 
about them. 

The same things I just said about Amos 


Want to accelerate your Amos efforts? 
Phil South reviews the latest addition to 
the family, Amos Professional Compiler 


Pro an? true about Pro Compiler, IPs still 
basically the same engine under die hood, 
just a new bud v and few technical 

enhancements which affect the way the 
thing drives - a bit like a Murid eu The face 


Bulging files 


- □gram sizes were very different with a shared library; 61 k including library plays' 
* without. Not bad, but not totally portable to any machine which doesn't run the 
-TiDs.library. so not really as good as a fully optimised comparer which would not 
:1udeany com mauds not used in the program itself. 

The program comes tree with an updater to make sure you have the latest 
?rsion of Amos Pro on your machine. I must admit I found Ihls a little bit odd. I 
-MlTed the Amos Pro program about ter seconds before I tried to use the 
daier, and I got an error message saying 1 needed to use the correct path. I 
* 31 using the correct path, dammit, and 1 couldn't get It to change It's tune, so 1 
cd il and installed to lloppies, then reinstalled the new version to hard disk. 
■ !i£ got Up my nose more lhan a little, but f still can't figure out what the prob- 
?m was. 

Despite all these niggles and quibbles 1 do think the release of this program 
■5uld be applauded, for no other reason than it enables us serious Amos users to 
' our backs into it and see if Amos Pro reaily has what it takes lo be ihe Amiga 
ant system of the 90s. 


is different, that is to say that the front end 
program is much altered, and it runs from 
an icon rather than being Loaded into Amus, 
but f guess this just means that the program 
has been compiled. 

The compiler works with previous ver- 
sions of the Amos program like Amos and 
Ee*y Amos, so you can buy the new com- 
piler even if you don't yet have thy newest 
version of the language. 

NEW COMMANDS 

The compiler obviously copes with ail the 
new versions of Amos Pro and ail the com- 
mands which have been added to the lan- 
guage since the East compiler was built This 
obviously tikes in all the Anim and music 
player commands too, and the library fur 
compiled programs to share means small 
programs if I he target computer for your 
programs is running the correct 
amosJibfaiy. 

Even though you should use the shared 
library setting if you want to be sun? people 
can run your programs, this is a big saving 


on size and so should be considered if VQU 
know ev eryone whoU be using your code. 

Vou can do the usual Squash command to 
compress the tiles, but every rime ! use this 
something goes wrong - not just in compiler 
Fro bur in the old compiler loo. | tend to for- 
get that and use PowwPaeker for online 
compression and decompression. 

The remove default screen problem is still 
there Eon. il your program uses an unpack 
CO mmand t ben l he Screen is a u tomatica 2 1 y 
created into your default screen, right? But if 
Llu-re is no default screen the screen can't be 
created, so no go. 

You can also load in Ascii files for compi- 
lation, which is handy if you want to 
develop your programs tin a laptop or palm- 
top wmrd processor and transfer them for 
compilation (I could use my trusty Portfolio, 
even!). 

There is talk, too, of this compiler being 
even taster than the original. That ?s very 
hard to test, and really 1 couldn't see any dif- 
ference (if anyone at Europryss can send me 
a reliable benchmark program, III be happy 
to run il, if not print it in the next issue!). 

Obviously seasoned users will see that 
this is not anything new, but rather an 
upgrade of what lias gone before* It's a tool, 
it does the job, hut E is my old man would 
Sayi J, lf 1 wanted something to write home 
about I'd have been to the rifcusT 

Funny chap, my old man.

The all-new Quarterback Tools Deluxe 
has finally arrived. Paul Austin takes a time 
out to look at this new player in the field 


W ith the recenL release of 
new updates hi the Ami- 
Back range of m Linage- 
men L and back-up uNlitifji.. the race tor 
supremacy in the security business is 
hotting up. 

Not to be outdone by the A mi -Back 
challenge. Quarterback rejoins the field 
as the all-new Quarterback Tools Deluxe. 
Quite what makes ihe package "deluxe" 
is Something of a mystery, 

However, this newly -gained prestige 
could well be due to the suite of extras 
which accompany the main program, 
Before mov ing on to the mam repair and 
maintenance program, a brief pause on 
this rather peculiar collection is well 
worth the page space. 

Starting with the silliest first - 
Keystroke Finder leaps forward tu claim 
the honour. As the name suggests, the 
aforementioned utility will find any char- 
acter available to the Amiga. 

Simply clicking on the character's icon 
will reveal the alter egos offered when 
used in concert with Alt and Shift. 


Admittedly the utility works per feet Ly, 
but considering lhat Show Key within 
Workbench can provide exactly the same 
information, the question has to be, why 
bother? 

On a brighter nnte comes an infinitely 
more impressive utility entitled Locator, 
[n my opinion this in the one that 
Workbench has always lacked, namely 
an automated Hk 1 finder. 

With the assistance of Locator, finding 
files lost in th£ bowels ol a bottomless 
hard disk is simply & matter of adding an 
appropriate string and instructing to look 
for files employing filtering such asj 
begins wi|h r ends wlth r contains, isn't, 
doesn't contain and so on. 

Once the fitter is defined, the disk cho- 
sen and the string added., hitting OK ini- 


tiates the search with a pair of baby blues 
swivelling from side to side during the 
search. 

As each occurrence is found the file 
list updates, revealing reveals the file 
into, location, plus its first lew hundred 
bytes, To access the particulars of any 
file, simply dick on its name and at! will 
be revealed - ever while the search is 
still in progress. 

SECURITY 

For the security conscious, two utili- 
ties arc provided, entitled Enrryptor and 
Brain Cloud. Not surprisingly consider- 
ing its tide Ennyptor, will scramble any 
file rendering it useless without ihe 
appropriate password to tin scramble 
your secret data. 

However be warned, Enuyptor does a 
particular thorough fob, scrambling ail 
the data within the file. When applied to 
big flies it can mean a long wait while 
encrypting and decrypting. And of 
course if the password is mislaid there's 
no way to retrieve ihe data. 

The second security utility is directed 


specifically towards floppies in the form 
of Brain Cloud a program which tem- 
porarily renders any disk out of action. 
Once a bram cloud is applied I he disks 
appea rs permanently busy and will not 
submit to any Amiga DOS Operations 
whatsoever* 

In order to use this disk for any reason 
you must un-cloud it first. Although not 
the sort of utility you'd employ every 
day, Brain Cloud does offer the ultimate 
in software protection, Admittedly the 
lack of a password will mean the disk 
could be un-clouded by others - but 
that's where Encrypt or comes into its 
own, 

Continuing in the search for the ulti- 
mate in security come yet another two 
utilities entitled Disk Eraser and File 
Eraser - again pretty self explanatory as 
to their use. 

However, unhke the majority of 
erasers both the QBTD utils boast the 
unique ability to use an erasing method 
endorsed by the Ub Department of 
[defence. 

Whether you pick this method or the 
program's default selling, the process is 
the same with the machine making a 
user-defined number of passes over disk 
- thereby Completely obliterating any 
data - and chance of recnx'ery. 

the final two util die 1 - are Replicator

and System Mover. The first allows a 

■ 

disk image to be created from any 
Amiga DOS floppy which can then be 
saved to disk, creating a replica which 
can be downloaded to all the drives on 
your system simultaneously either 
before or after saving to disk. 

Lastly conies System Mover - a pro- 
gram which automatically locates and 
copies the essential elements or the 
operating; system ready for duplication 
onto another device

A o in- location includes fonts, print-

CLl commands And CLI scripth. Once 
hsted , clicking on any file reveals the 
version number, revision date, si^e and 
creation date of the belated file read) 
fur easv comparison with your existing 
versions. 

Although system duplication and 
indeed many of the functions offered by 
the QBTD utils can be emulated by the 
more advanced directory managers such 
as Directory Opus and SID, they are 
nevertheless very handy lor the seriou* 
user and an. excellent freebie. 

The main program again follows the 


modular approach inspired by the- afore- 
mentioned utilities Once loaded-up 
vou'rc offered four alternatives which 
include Analyze and repair, Recover 
Lost /Deleted Files, Optimise and 
Volume Edit. 

With this arsenal at band you can scan 
disks for a whole range of problems and 
apply thy repairs automatically. In addi- 
tion, any bad blocks found on the hard- 
ware can be spotted and hidden from 
AmigaDOS- tWreby avoiding repetition 
caused by errors on the disk itself. 

Aside from repair and preventative 
maintenance you can also salvage lost or 
deleted files, even when the di&L itself is 
badly damaged or a quick format has 
been accidentally applied - of course in 
the case of physical damage this is often 
A case of picking through the nibble 
rather than restoring everything.

On a less dramatic note, QBTD also 
offers an optimise option which will 
defragment your drive, thereby provid- 
ing the optimum storage and access,

position ol enjoying Quarterbacks as part of their 
software siebi$. 

Although the title Is deceptively similar to its 
tool-oriented counterpart, QB5 is a ti&rd drive 
back-up system that’s become something at an 
industry standard whan it comes So Isrge scale 
data storage. 

Like Arm- Back, QB& Is capable of floppy back* 
ups but also as a file on another volume or alter- 
natively d it eel lo a laps streamer. However, it 
must be said that GB5 doesn't offer the schedul- 
ing: option available to A mi -Back — its mam 
opposition. 

Even with She lack ot scheduling, QB5 remains 
Ibe moss popular back-up formal in She profes- 
sional market which means It's often the preferred 
medium when nansleiring largo amounts ot data 
to others lor commercial use.

In addition to the point- and -dick par- 
adise offered by the majority of the px 
gram, you're also provided with a lecfur 
editor enabling experts to edit the infor- 
mation on the di*,k directly - not rcco 
mended for beginners, 

ARexx afiriotmdoa arc also catered for 
with ci selection of ten programmab 
macros plus an up lion to launch add 
banal scripts directly. 

FULL SUPPORT 

Finally like all the hotter recent 
releases support is also provided fof 
Amiga DQS 2.0 and 3.0 with special atten- 
tion being pel sd to the hard and soft Hrikfr 
provided by both of the above. 

The obvious question is: If given 
choice between Ami- Back Tools* an 
Quarterback Tools Deluxe, which would 
be ihe better buy? 

Well apart from the flight price differ 
euce in QBTD's favour there's very little 
sn it. Both programs offer seeming I', 
identical performance when it comes tu 
reviving the dead and general disk 
organisation. 

Perhaps a better question would bt 
What would you prefer? The flexibility 
and easv automation of Ami-Back 1 col- 
or the impressive collection of addition^; 
bits which accompany QB l D? 

Personally Td opt tor the QBTD sim- 
ply because for me tlie utilities would be 
of more use on a day-to-day basis.

UPDATES* 


W hen Roluia fa rsl landed on 
the AC test bed it was a 
promising low cost 24 -bit 
high resolution display card with early 
aoilware which was a little buggy and 
unstable in places. 

What should have been a perfect cheap 
Million lor CAD, D1 (\ and high quality 
Artwork was held back ai the Iasi fence by 
reluctant code which wasn't quite capable 
ot making the distance. 

Since the first boards were shipped, 
however, Makra System have made sev- 
eral changes to both system and utility 
software, and ihe situation has taken a 
marked change tor the better. With release 
03, Retina is now capable of fulfil Ling its 
promise as (he best low-cost Amiga dts- 
riay card. 

Possibly (he greatest disappointment 
when we first looked at Retina was the 
failure of the M .ike Race animation soft- 
w are to actually function. Double buffered 
24-bit animation was on the menu, but it 
appeared that the Chef was of the sausage 
ind egg school. 

INTUITIVE 

Make Race now* works flue, and has the 
mmeasurable benefit of an intuitive front 
* nd to make using it .i great deal simpler 
lhan the CLI-d riven utility it once was. 

1 Opening on a clean gadget-filled window, 
dif program immediately offers the user a 
Hide Rtngje of controls Affecting the quality 
<4 the finished animation. 

Three buttons are used to select 
between 16, and 24-hit results, and when 
"^-bit is thosned, the user has a palette slider 
at his or her disposal to define tin- number 
of col ours j. up to a maximum of 256, in 
which the &-biE anim will he rendered. 
Defaulting to 16-bit, a compromise 
between speed and quality, Make Race 
won't produce 25 frames per second in full 
overscan, but it does make for a very 
handy preview utility. 

If is easy to select a range of animator 
rames and render them as a Race anim for 



The low cost Retina 24-bit card now 
has software to match its hardware 


preview - much easier and quicker than, 
say, converting them io HamA or scaling 
them down to a more manageable 

In addition, there is a real benefit in 
previewing an animation in exactly the 
quality at which it will he transferred to 
frape, even if it will run at only 12 frames 
per second. 

The Newton's Cradle Animation, a 
frame of which is shown here, was ren- 
dered a * 25 frames And converted using 


Make Race to a 5 Mb 24-bit anim playing At 
a respectable 12 ur so frames per second. 
Animations with camera panning involv- 
ing a lot of full screen movement crawl 
along at less than ten frames per second, 
but even at fhh ■speed, full 24-bit previews 
are very useful Videographers who need 


to see how an an a mat inn will appear 
before committing it tea tape will find 
Make Race much more useful than anv 
quarter-screen HAM preview. 

Other changes in software are mostly of 
the clean up and bug- fix variety, but mo^f

Take 2 comes 



■ flfct if Fawerful and practical 

The first release qI Take 2 offered a package wilh more 
power features than its price lag would have indicated, 
ocluding four- level animation of the kind used by proles* 
siional cartoon animators; direct GQiitroi over the Vidi 
Amiga digitiser; synchronised sound, and so on. 

However, whirling users a$ we all are. a flood ol 
reed back from users has resulted in a much augmented 
and tweaked program which ps now more practical than 


ever, Take 2 is designed as a “Fine tester’ for use in 
COffimeTCial studios or users' back bedrooms into which 
The animator imports, either from a paint package or by 
digitising directly From hond-drawn pictures a senes of 
frames from an animation in development. 

By providing tools for The usar to test and 1 edit the 
rough anim, usually simple line drawings (hence the 
term line tester). Take 2 makes completion ol The final 
drawings and final animation much more exact. 

5AVING TIME 

Line testing is a vrtai part of every commercial cartoon 
studio's production process, and as it is such an edit and 
experiment-intensive procedure, the software which con- 
trols Ft has to oe very flexible and practical 

Most ol The changes made for ihis latest release ol 
Take S have been prompted by users who require as 
much functionality and time-saving as possible, so it's no 
surprise that Rombo have made only solidly sensible 
improvements Of most interest to user will be the new 


again 

editing features found in the X-Sheet Take 2's exposure 
sheet where most cell manipulation lakes place. 

By grving the mouse a great deal more power (o its 
elbow, even the smallest editing moves can now be 
made without recourse to menus and less intuitive 
actions 

For example stretching a cell's timing so (hat it 
appears on screen far a greater amount ol time is now 
simply a matter ol clicking and dragging the cell lo its 
new length. Similarly, sound samples can be made to 
stretch oul in She same way, (hough Itie results can otten 
distort the sample. 

in addition, merging severe! levels of animation into 
one lave! tor previews of a complete animation has been 
added to (he X-Sheet's arsenal of tools. By choosing 
Merge from The X- Sheet menu, users can combine all 
four levels into one animation quickly while retaining lull 
colour and resolution. This is ideal for previews for 
clients or for a last minute proofing exercise before final-

are welt thought out and sensible, For 
example, Retina Emu, ihe heart of the 
Retina system and the program which 
enables the display of Workbench and 
most legally coded padcagtson the Retina 
itself, has been enhanced and improved, 

The Ifrcolour limit imposed by early 
versions of the software has been 
removed, and Retina is now capable ot 
displaying a Workbench screen an up to 
256 colours, (hough operations can slow- 
down quite a bit when this option h used. 

If the limit is adhered to, users will 
notice a marked speed increase over some 
earlier operations, especially scrolling 
through large pictures. 

Retina's documentation claims a seven- 
fold speed increase and, while ife is diffi- 
cult to check, the improvement certainly is 
impressive. Working w r ith very large 
images on a standard Workbench-size 
screen is thus a great deal easier as mov- 
ing around the picture is faster and 
smoother. 

Hamft is included for full AGA emula- 
tion, and it is possible to display these files 
as if using a new Amiga, but the code 
involved needs a I it lie more work. As 
soon as a HamS IFF is displayed, the 
board grinds almost to a halt, and speed is 
compromised to such a degree that it is far 


quicker to use ADFro and the Retina 
saver to view such images. 

For easier and more effective use with 
different monitors, the ReHnaScreenMode 
program has been introduced and a new 
De f i neM on i t o r p rog ram i nd u ded . 
Monitors are now grouped together 
under broad headings, making it easier 
for a user to find a screen mode to suit his 
or her VDU, and adding a new monitor to 
the fairly long list of models catered far is 
easier now that a separate program deaLs 
with the pnxess. 

QUICK TWEAKS 

By inputting the monitor's vertical and 
horizontal scan rates and so on - taken, 
hopefully, from the device's manual - the 
user can tell Retina just how to talk to its 
cathode friend. However, if the manual 
Jala is not available, simply choosing a 
group and messing about with the set- 
tings makes for a quick solution, 

The program's test mode will send a 
test card image to the Retina board at the 
click of a mouse button, and if the image 
doesn't appear, or is hopelessly nut of 
svnc, the user can just experiment with 
monitor settings until a rock steady pic- 
ture is achieved. Now just plug the mon- 
itor into Retina's video connector and go. 

There are a number of smaller tweaks.

such as the Retina Display program* 
willingness to show Sp^g Mlee without 
thfm first being decompressed in APPnp r 
and the odd minor upgrade, but in 
essence the package has seen a tightening 
up m areas where definite improvement 
was called for (such as MakeRace) and 
the addition of sensible new utilities 
(such as Define Monitor). As an end 


result we have a display board whk 
continues to offer the best low-cost nij 
resolution CAIT and DTP solution whi 
being easier to use and having a littl 
extra appeal for artists and videogr- 
phtirs.

wng Ihe production, Control of the Vidi Amiga 12 hard- 
ware has also been implemented, and irtdudes software 
control over the incoming video signal. 

CLEAN PICTURES 

Sliders (or brightness, contrast, saturation, and offset 
will, when used with the new hardware, enable the ani- 
mator to choose exactly how Ihe line drawings or other 
artwork appear on screen. This can be important to 
ensure that a clean picture results in as accurate a pre- 
view of an animation as possible. These are the impor- 
tant or biggest changes, but (hey are backed up by a 
clutch of minor tweaks to everything from the way in 


which the Flipper preview player i$ controlled To fhe file 
requester and the Info panel, which now informs the user 
how many pictures will lit in the available floppy or hard 
disk space. 

In all what was always a very useful and cost effec- 
tive line tester for commercial or home use is now a 
more productive and usable package The changes 
made by Rombo are Ihoughtlul and well targeted, 
prompted by those who use the program every day and 
aimed to Improve rather than change for ihe sake of 
change.

■ PD and SHARE W ARE 


With a truly huge selection of PD 
to choose from this time around, 
this month's column will con- 
centrate on some of the utterly 
unmissable stuff that's been 
coming in from individuals or 
from libraries - usually smaller 
ojies - about whom we hear lit- 
tle. 

There's op music demo this 
month, partly due to the high 
quality of the rest of the soft- 
ware, and partly due to the lack 
of much originality on the music 
scene at ffie moment. So if 
you've created a dazzling Amiga 
music disk, send it to me! 

Next month the big boys in the 
field get their revenge, but tor 
now, settle back and ready your- 
self for some of the most inno- 
vative, amusing or just plain 
practical PD this page has seen 
In a long while. 


Lunchtime 4:

Lunchtime 

Describe as toe "weirdest magazine on the 
Amiga", just the kind of claim you get with 
.my of a number of sprawling and unfunny 
disk magazine*,, but in this case - as with 
Lunchtime's last release - the team do not 
disappoint. 

Described by themselves as the result of 
"seven ugly people being nailed to desks 
for ten months without food, wafer or any 
other facilities apart from being allowed to 
run around a wheel occasionally and 
maybe given the odd bottle of cider 1st 
drink by sucking a wet sponge, the maga- 
zine comes on two disks: An amusing bool 
disk and a second one containing the arti- 
cles, 

And what a set of articles they are! 
Controlled by a pleasingly original inter- 
face (including a "shush-" panel to shut off 


An amazingly high quality selection of 
programs that you can't and won't find 
anywhere else but in 

that oasis for idealists, PUBLIC 
the public domain.

witty, funny, interesting and invariably

twisted. 

With titles like "The Furtlier Adventures 
of Q, J II - Jesus 1 Story" and "Memoirs of a

nities for the many deft touches of subver- 
sion Iked throughout. 

And so we have a boy who "goes

short play "Lost in Studio 2 IT, a superficial

environmental section which manages to 
jT^t the surely com mon-sense messaged it 
contains across without sounding toffy- 
nosed, heavy-handed or right-on. 

All in all, it you’re after a disk magazine

a fool not to get the back issues too...

KBE Software 

Billed as file best 8-bit sampler available in 
the public domain. Supersound IV cer- 
tainly appears to be the part. Coming pro 
fessiorally presented with the ability to 
install it to bard drive thanks to a dedicated 
installer,, and happy working with any 8-bit 
sampling cartridge,, it promises all of the 
power but none of the gimmirkery. 

Indeed, if this guarantee of no gimmick- 
try had been fully carried through, this 
program would have been near perfect. 

[be interface, it must be sal d r does look 
very nice. It's got a professional button-like 
look about it. tasteful and functional use of 
colour, and the impression of enough fea- 
tures to sink the Titanic! 

There are numerous numerical parame- 
ters on display at the bottom of the screen, 
snd the menus hide a large number of 
sophisticated functions, 

The res a seek zero at start /finish set of 
operations whkh basically make it easier to 
Start, stop and loop samples without that 


annoying electronic click you can often hd 
left with, 

There ate 15 effects, each of whkh 
three to seven different options afetaclicd 
it, so (here's no shortage of sample process 
mg power, either. 

As well as all the usual editing tools, 
preferences are impressive (you can sav 
and toad set-ups, too), and the genera 
impression is of a piece of software writl 
by art enthusiast who is UXl per cent sure 
what s/he needs- 

Unfortunately, this particular progiti 
met also felt the need to make window 
open in an annoying scrolly kind of wai 
which, due to the short amount of time " 
effet takes, becomes extremely ■lnnoyii 
after a while. 

1 he inclusion of a non-standard U\i 
requester contributed to my general fea& 
of antagonism towards the interface w hen 
used it. 

But I’m me d to a commercial coimti 
part, Audition 4 F which is a picture of ft 
{tonal ease of use, so maybe Em asking t< 
much. 

At the end of the day. this is an mered^ 
bly powerful piece of software whir! 
stands as an example of the head-on chi!

General Midi 
Patcher vl.1 -

Christophs Carvajal 

The problem with using the Amiga as a 
music computer is nor its power - we all 
know where the Amiga stands versus I he 
ST m that area - but its lack of available 
software. 

1 don't mean sequencers or samplers - 
there are plenty of those for both machines 
- but rathor the little bits and pieces that 
prove essential in using a computer to 
make music.

mg out for for the Amiga js a General Midi 
patch editor, 5. program allowing the user 
to acres? all of the parameters which go to 
make up the sounds within a GM sound 
module and mess around with them. 

Currently available for all Roland 
GM/GS synths, this little program is just 
that It comes complete with the ability to 
save parameters out to disk, a very easy-to- 
use interface and a decent size - Less than 
200k - which means il should be easy to 
run it alongside your favourite sampler or 
sequencer ( something the ST definitely 
can't do). 

Once you have saved out the default set- 
tings - those your synthesis was supplied 
with - and stored the disks very safely 
somewhere, you can mess around with 
vour sounds to your heart's content. 

Programmed by an unemployed French 
author, this is exactly the kind of area 
where die public domain excels - filling in 
areas not covered by the commercial world. 
It's as good as any, so if a GM/GS patch 
editor is what you're after and vou own a 
Roland synth, you'd be a fed to go for any 
other.. 

By the way, the author is working on 
making this program compatible with other 
synthesizers, the Korg C rM - com pat i hies 
included* so watch this space. 


Card Reader w3

Ooh, tarot! A taste of the mysterious. 
Written by the equally mysterious Delos 
(actually a rather more down-to-eaitii Terry 
A Edwald] this program comes complete 
with lengthy but informative documents- 
Ron. 

Griming to be good for newcomers to 
the Amiga (what about newcomers to 
tarot?) it is a suitably sensalinnalised and 
ghmmed-itp affair, quite reminiscent of a 
television magic show. 

However it is also slick and well done, 
leading the user painlessly into a full read- 
ing. You "pick" a card by clicking A mouse 
button as the deck in question flashes 
quickly from card to card. The program - 
mysteriously - has you flicking from left to 
right to left buttons all the way through the 


Starbase 13 

Magnetic fields 

An Amos Pro game (the first I've seen - maybe 
(is not quite so hard to program in this new 
Amos update as the moaners would have use 
believe?) and a very good one al that. 

Set in space, but apart Irom that pretty remi- 
niscent of Monkey Island, Star base 13 is nicely 
done with some really atmospheric graphics, 
and a convincing central character who walks 
around the locations depicted on-screen al your 
request. 

There are the usual commands like take and 
examine, all laid out in a neat set lo the left of the 
screen, 

In tact, tram Its la sty semi^a nimated prologue 
to the inclusion of a hard drive installation pro- 
gram (many commercial games positively don't 
have one of these) this Is a game which would 
not look out of place with a large price lag on the 
front of It. 

l don't know how big the adventure is (I'm still 
trying to take off in my spacecraft) but it’s very 
welt done and worthy of any adventurer's 
attentions.

cance on the proceedings, 

Having completed your choice-*, ihc pro-

A bit of a break from the Assassins crew, 
turning their backs on games to put out an

Thref ftame-s are presented in usual high 
Assassins standards. at least as regards the 
colourful ^elections menu. 

First up is a simple sums game called 
Counting Fun, Suitable for the child who 
has just started teaming about maths, you 
can choose one of three difficulty Levels

There is a large number of categories tor 
you to choose from as regards the subject 
your words are all to be connected with 
(don't choose junk food if you're hungry!) 
and three options depending upon how- 
patient you're feeling - the computer can 
,mlv tell you die first letter of each word, or 
not even that should you be feeling particu- 
larly genius-ridden today. 

Indeed l have only one complaint against 
this program - why can't you gel it for the 
Apple Macintosh? 

Finally, Style is the classic "pains" game, 
where you have a number of cards down- 
side up and have to turn them over in twos, 
remembering what you saw where and so 
matching up paim, ivhich are removed once 
identified. 

Here each "card" has a cute scon on it, 
and the user interface is nice and transparent 
leaving you to work out where that second 
Sun card was.. There is the option to choose 
any number of players between one and 
tour, too. Simple, but surprisingly good - a 
little like that first mouthful of Kelloggs' 
Com Flakes after all these- years.

Yes, the hero of this one is a stick. A delightful cartoony platformer 
with a difference thanks to the skilful hand of Core Design 

Drawing Board 2: Blob 121 

Another bouncy platformer, but this time it's got a unique angle 
to it. Simon boings over to Core Design to take a squint...

Brutal Spans Football came ta lie in my sw&jiy 
pdm.„ 

If* n w-arm July evening, il's Idle and hub 
Keithy Smith Lies in hts Sydenham love nest 
wrapped in a troubled slumber 

Sam^'here outelde there's a commotion, a cert 
screeches and several duifen lids cfolter lo the 
ground. There's a large bdi of static and out of the 
night two hunched shadow* materialise.. 

Without effort they snap the lock on Keilh's 
bade door Hissing and snarling the two shrouded 
figures shuffle upstairs to where an unwitt ng Mr 
Smith lies dneamirg about becoming a rock star. 

In ans gruff inslant Keith is shaken rather 
alarmingly from his I angled encounter win 
Morpheus. 

'You! Are you Keith Smith, man for 
Millennium Software?* Hiises one of the figures.. 
' r Yei/ squeaks Ke«lh. 

"Good, you lillle runt Now listen anti listen 
good. I'm Bob Tanner and, this is Jim Skinner.., 
and you're cornin' with us/ growls ihe other. 

Through sieep-crusledi eyes Keifri -stares inta the 
half light in cm attempl ta recognise the unknown 
adversaries. Bui it's too loin,, in a blinding Ifosh all 
Keith's burning pupils register is □ while piercing 
glare. 

The next thing Keith is aware of is noise. Ihe 
noise of a crowd, a very forge crowd. As his 
burned^ouf ■eyes open and look around "nr 
answers he ftfilisei he is no longer in suburban 
Sydenham. 

Ifillead, he stands in a large brightly lit room, 
Keith, mouth draped open, slowly traverses his 
head ta tale in ihe scene. Around him people 
hurry by dressed in strange clothe carrying weird 
equipment. 

Then, out of the corner of one eye Keith notices 
two figures pointing in his directs laughing hys- 
terically, 

^Hq4iq. look at you, punk!" points the one who 
called himself Bab. 

Keith slowly stares fborwotds and is aghast ta 
Find he is standing clad only in a pair of white 
Y-ftcflts and a pair of slightly holey AA&5 socks. 
But, before he can contemplate [he uwfjestwnabfe 
lass of credibility of the situation, or question what 
hen happened ta a nan of §uch natty itm code, 
he is wrenched right bads ifllo his dilemma. 

* Right, Mr. PR man. We've rat just five minutes, 
ta explain this ta you so yaud Better listen,' bolls 
Jim. Wide-eyed. Keith tries ta weigh up this inened-

Conversely, hove you ever found yo unelf

So, imagine my surprise when a preview boats 
its interstellar -wings towards my desk daiming la

dimension. 

Imagine my confusion when I find this alien 
Tpe entity k called Bleb. Now, I den i knew how 
many oi you are 70s children, but as far g* I 
remember a Blob was a hard-boiled sweet. Thesa 
Came in a number of surreal flavours like cola and 
peanut or raspberry und Silk Cut. 

Anyway getting bock to on alternative reality, 
Blob is a spherical life farm who speeds his exis- 
tence bouncing o: r ouf*d a world, neigh universe 
where in the physical realms result in a 
bouncy nirvana of spiritual paradise in the 
after- lite. 

Whai alt thdS wil' mean to the uninitiated inhab-

Blob ;$ vr-ewed jjn □ form d - 3D, with the play 
either coming at your s erw or dropping awgy 

from it At firs' glance it 
doesn t look much, but cs 
they say, don't judge- a 
1 book by sts caver 

The bask object is to 
gufde your blue globular 
guy through a series o a 


tiles abowe and below him until he reaches the rel- 
evant exit. This is acieved by ut lising bleb's out 
standing lalertl - bouncing. 

^lay consists of rfiree different goals, to get the 
boll -shaped one into the back of - metaphorically 
speaking. First is the oferementioned reach the 
exit' scenario, collecting a certain quantity of 
spodsp] and a number of bonus-type points for 
prizes stages. 

The puzzle aspect of Slob centres around d'fler 

iiylei of fife. Different !i es hm^e varying effects 
an Biot's- foriuna Far example, there are such 
things as squares which give Blob estro bounce to 
the ounce Conversely, there are also give files 
wfoch reduce the elastic energies o' the rotund 
one. 

As Otways there ore a number of pilfolb within 
the doily life of Blob. For one if he drops too far off 
a ledge he will lose energy and be in dire need of 
a couple of paracetamol Also, one slip af your 
nimble fingers on the joystick and the poor circular 
Ortfc rolls into the depths of vacuous space. 

To make a disc-shaped existence an even more 
perilous paslime, there are also o number other 
things to avouch These comprise of a right set of 
nasties which do their be*t ip hamper our orb-

Included in this bunch will be spinner balls who 
chase Blob around the place^ bouncers who

While we were at US Gold we hod the

irvol you use a set of cards in conjunction wilt 
loads of tithe counters. In the computer versicr 
you don't have to bother fiddling with therr

U S Gold had phoned up and invited 
Gamer down to iheir Birmingham 
offices to take a sneaky peek at 
their kites! piece of saftame called 
Kingmaker. This was the only titte- 
menHoned in the telephone amvenation and it 
never downed on me to ask wt-ct type of game 
it wo*. Oh well, ho hum. 

Being o Ion of indie music I was rather hop- 
ing it was aboul the band Kingmaker. Oh yes if 
could wdl hove been an oroide adventure of 
epic proportions featuring one at the hordesl 
working bands on the road. 

Yeah, perhaps l could’ve hod a faw heebies 
- even belter, the band cou Id be there pbying c 
short set. Alas it was not to be, my imagination 
had run away with me once more. 

Kingmaker is, in fact, a strategy boord game 
that apparently has sold hundreds of thousands 
of copies since if was released in 1974 Wmey, 
that was a Ml year before I was even bom and 


Monopoly? Neh. Scrabble? Ptooey. 
Trivial Pursuit? Sigh. Kingmaker? 
Cheer! Jonathan Maddock looks on 
as US Gold convert the '74 classic 
to the small screen. 


because it s an done tor you. 

There ore several instances where the com- 
puter version mokes for o more complex 
gome. For example, lef 5 take c look at the bat 
nes between the two rival farces. In the boom 
game, the battles ore won and fast on the turr 
of o cord and this type of bottle is incarporateo 
in the compute* conversion. 

There is an □! her way la fight the battles 
though, which is to select the Advanced Ploy 
optkwi. Then youll hove direct control over you r 
army in buttle, This is a brifent option because 
you then find the strategy port of the game 
which could get a bit monotonous spfr up by 0 
great arcade section. 

The gome is 100 per cenl mouse-controlled 
and uses o completely intuitive icon system 
that gives the player eosy access to all of tht 
game functions. A I you nistonans out there' I 

be pleased to know thcr 
Kingmaker will be 
accompanied by a 120- 
page manud Featuring a 
wealth of information on 
the historical background 
and anafysis of the War 
of the Roses conflict. 

As I've confessed 
before, Tm not particu- 
larly fond of strategy 
games and I bet other 
ptaple hove the same 
sort of opinion, but 
Kingmaker could well 
change a few minds 
when it arrives. I tan 
guarantee that strategy 
tons are noinq to be in 


apment fw over 1ft months which for a game 
at this nature is □ long time. IK* been pro- 
g rammed by Graham lilee whose previous 
projects include Heroes of the lance and 
Shadow Sorcerer, with the graphics by Kevin 
Buhner who was responsible for the artistic 
delight! seen in Corporation and mare recently 
legends of Vofaur. 

Accordinq to US Gold, it offers an abstract 
recreation of the chaos, war and intrigue that 
epitomised the period of the War of the Bases., 
end hey, if lhal doesn't sound Ifke an exciting 
board game, then you con cal me Hilda, 

Products such as Powermonger, Civilisation 
and Defender of the Crown hove oil teen theft 
successes. The weakness in these titles is that 
tteir artificial intelligence :AI| is weak and the 
strategy player loses interest in the products, 


going to do the same. 

It is set in the period of British history known 
as the Wat of the Roses, where the Lancastrians 
irepresented by a Red Base- fought against the 
Yorkists [represented by a White Rosef- The

piece und so become ihe undisputed King of 
England. 

MANY FACETS 

The pkryer controls o taction df nobles repre- 
senting historical personalities from I5lh

the chang es in strength* of the factions as they 
are decimated by bottles, plagues orwt failed

In the past many softwc

T his month if s the turn o t Gametek, q 
brand new name Iq th* world of 
Amigo software. Gamer interviews 
Gometek supremo Kelly Sumner and 
takes a keen look at their releases that will 
be arriving an your shelves before 
Christmas. 


GAMETEK 


The 

Interview... 

Q , GameteJe seems to be a refalwfy new name to 
software py Wisfrmg on foe Afffiga Where fieri if sprung 
from? 

A, Actually, iP* one of the longest established 
Nintendo publishers in the world ana its holding com- 
pany, Gabco p has been ground foe 17 years, It started 
in ifie selfoth rough video business and was once lbs 
second largest sell-through! company in the US, behind 
Disney. 

Q » So wb&n did foe interest In software start? 

A. In about 1987 the firm decided it would be a 
good idea la get involved with a company colled 
Nintendo and f at r s when it set up Gametek Inc. At the 
time consoles weren’t anything like die success they ore 
now Gametek saw the opportunities early and became 
are of foe very first Nintendo licensee*, 

Q*SowV haven't we heard much about the firm untrf 

now? 

A# For a while. I suppose you could say that the oper- 
ation was guile Iqw key. The firm concentrated on NES 
products and also published game show licences such 
as Jeopardy ond Wheel of Fortune which, white being 
huge in America are only successful in a handful of 
European territories. 

Q. What brought about the sftr ft through the gears 
ffiot we ‘ye witoesarf (otefy^ 

A* I think you con trace it directly back to the appoint- 
ment of a gentleman named Bruce Lowery No years 
aao, Bruce was one of ihe founding member! of 
Nintendo of America. He helped set the fern up in 
Europe and has also had a spell as the presides o 
Sega of America. You could soy he's got a pretty good

The first in aa occasional series where Gamer 
takes a look at the companies behind the 
games. Jonathan Maddock asks Who? 
Where? What? How? and Why? 


h 


track record 

At about the same time Gametek got a licence to 
publish Sega product in the US, tho^e two final hop 
p&ninn more or iess simultaneously awakened tne firm 
to its potential. 

Q* h fhot when tbs thought of branching out into 
Europe aimed? 

A* More or less, yes. The thinking wa* that Garnet 
had to expand pretty rapidly. Hid meant increasing the 
number of territories we we?e represented in and also 
the number of formats that we published. 

As for os the European offices goes, some big US 
companies seem to still believe that you can control ij 
km across the Pond, you can’t. Bruce knew that and 
that's when he started talking to me about establishing 
a major European presence. 

Qi At that time you were head of Commodore UK 
.Moving to an unproven publisher touW hove seemed 
to many like a step in foe wrong drrecn&n vVibpi 1 per- 
suodec? you to tacife ft? 

A* Garnet isn't just muddling along from product to 
product. It hds a. very dear vision ot where thus market 
t 5 going ond l happen to believe that they are spot on. 
Gametek of course, has plans to be a very big opera- 
tion hut bring in at this stage means that I can directly 
affect how it gets there, it s also goi some products that 
ore going to mote my jab a lot easiei 
On the console side, games like Hu mam already 
have a proven track record on home formats and, if 
anything, ore mare suited to □ console audience. And 
we're strong on home formats too ond don t forget 
we've got home format lights Id ail Konarr.i games, 
things 'lute Batman Returns, 

S . How are fofngs going now foot foe UK aft ice is h 
ice? 

A* Very well indeed. As ol May we were up and i un 
nina. We've got Gerry Tuder, who you may remem- 
ber from Virgin and Acdaim t on board as find ice 
director cm3 Gary Lewis who was with me at 
Commodore as Soles Jiteotm. 

Adrian Cole who previously worked at System 3 has 
taken the position of Marketing Manager (here oik 
still a number of key rales to till, but we won t rush 


We're going to hang on in there until we gel the very 
besl pei sonnel possible. 

Qi Will the UK See effectively be foe European HQ? 

A* To a certain extent It will be the hub ot the 
European operation but there will a ! so be offices in 
Germany and France opened up later in the year 
because we feel that only local staff can guarantee us 
fie best performances in those territories. 

Qi 5o when wj|lJ we see some Gometek product arriv- 
ing m Europe? 

A. There will be o handful of products released this 
side of Christmas but they il make quite an impact In 
1 994 we've got some really spedacufer stuff 

Qi What foe schedule going to be /ike on the home 
computer fronf? 

A * That's actually very busy. We've got about a 
dozen lifles due in September and October. Obviously 
our ranks have been swelled by affiliate deals with top 
names lib Konomi and Spirit of Discovery. 

We'vfl gat things like Batman Returns, Bill Elliot's 
Nascar Racing, American Gladiators and Humans 
A 1 200 arriving before Christmas. 

Q* How would you sum up foe Gometei product that 
we're going Jo see aver foe next 1 2 monfos? 

A. Well what l wouldn't want to do is try and cate- 
gorise us. The only factor fai deter mines whether or not 
we develop Of licence a game is quality, Thai's the only 
way to secure long term growth and that's what 
Gametek is interested in. 

There s a major shake-up going on in publishing at 
the moment, With people like Sony joining in, you'd 
better befee it. Out of the 100 or to publishers around 
f e world now, possibly only 20 will be left in a few 
years' time. 

You'll have to be a major player to survive and I con 
assure you we intend to do mare fan ust survive, Our 
qualify of product and staff will see to that. At Gometek 
we don't want to be known as a niche publisher or any 
particular formal or in any particular genre, weVe f e 
complete publisher.

D ast month we looked :if some of the Ixi^ic ideas 
behind the remote control uiieraticm of a com- 
puter; we saw that three things are basically 

invnlvLii: 

1. A terminal program to allow receipt of signals Ifom 
the serial pon 

2. A script fitciliry to allow ihe intelligent processing 
of the alKjvcmentioriLsJ signals 
J. A link between the 1 terminal and die machine, so 
that the script ran control other programs running on 
the computer 

We have already seen how well AJtexx fulfils the two 
fimciions. 

Now, there is also another type of program tliat allows 
remote control of computers, (he so-called hulletin board 
systems, or BBSs A BBS is essentially a very' specialised 
terminal program. BBSs allow your computer to become 
host to anyone calling your number, and will allow callers 
to upload'download files, maintain postboxes and so on, 
just like the commercial networks. 

Popular Amiga BBS programs include Ami Impress, 
Baud Bandit and TransAmiffi. and more are appearing all 

B 

die time. 

Any BBS worth its salt can provide privileged users with 
some control over the system (as well as excluding unau- 
thorised users). 

ALso. since AHexx has been making such an impact in 
die world of Amiga comms. there is hardly a single UBS 
which doesn't support it. 

In other words, you should lie able to control your 
Amiga remotely (including launching programs and getting 
results) by running a BBS on it. However, BBSs are large 
programs, and can lie very demanding on memory and 
resources. 

'Ihey have a special purpose - to lie a forum and an 
information point for many users. Using a BBS for a small 
remote control operation may lx? gross os'crkill. 

There is another way. Any ARcxx-compaiible terminal 
can he adapted as the engine fnr a mini-contml centre, or 
even a mini-BBS. if you like. All you need for this Ls a suit- 
able ARexx scnpL To try this approach, you will either 
need to find a ready script, or write one yourself. It is not 
as difficult as you might dunk at first. 

The distribution of the VLT terminal provides an exam- 
ple mini-BBS, which would be suitable for an experi- 
menter, The terminal and the program are small enough to 
run on a 1Mb Amiga, and the code can be studied be 
adapted for your own requirements. 

The script program is called F1FQBBS.REXX, because it 
uses Matt Dillons excellent FIFO; pipe device, This is not 
necessary, hut it is very elegant, if a bit confusing for a 
newcomer, since you need to know what a pipe is in the 
first place. 

The advantage of using pipes is that you can have a 
“proper" CLi on your remote machine, without having, to 
write a script to decode the incoming command strings, as 
we do in the DIY examples below, 

The easiest way to obtain VTT is probably from Fred 
Fish library disk *455. By the way, vlT has many, many, 
more features, including a version with Tektronix emula- 
tion, for use by academic establishments! 

Its hill doaimentarioti is available from the USA. free for 
the asking. The VLT project was actually funded by the US 
government, and was developed for use at: the Stanford 
Linear Accelerator Centre, so it’s nice to see the Amiga 
being taken seriously, 

Willy Langevdd, who wrote VLT, has also made other 
substantial contributions to the ARexx scene, including the 
extremely popular ResciArpLib and RexxMatnLih Mwiiet. 

So, with a setup like this you can run a remote Amiga 
CL1 from just about any computer, as you can see in the

illustrated example. 

However, you don't nerd a fully-fcatured CL1 to control the 
Amiga from a distance. Arty package that allows commands to- 
be sent to the CD or to ABexx will do, 

The popular NCOmm package, for instance, provides the 
commands CD and SPAWN, for (hc.se two tasks respectively; 
most other terminals will have some kind of equivalent 
command. 

As we saw in the last issue, a remote-control script for your 
terminal is simply composed of a few loops that check ihe inpul 
from the serial port. and lake appropriate action, 

You will see dial die actual number of commands provided 

bv the terminals is rather .small, since ARexx can do so much of 

■ 

the went tedt 

Most of the commandb will simply duplicate the menu func- 
tions, control the terminal settings and so on, In addition Lo 


Sampling t 


It is nice to see books on ARexx starting to appear on book- 
store shelves, and from time lo time we will be reviewing 
them here. Today we look at a book Irom the United Slates, 
The ARexx Cookbook by Merril Callaway. 

The Cookbook is noi meant to be a complete AFlexx manu- 
al, and Ihe author says so, right from Ihe start- Instead, it is en 
interesting blend ol ideas and examples, which makes fre- 
quent cross-references to the ARexx manual, in order to 
avoid duplication. If you are looking for a book from which to 
learn Ihe basics of ARexx, look elsewhere, This book is strict- 
ly a supplement. 

Having said that, l found that, the book dealt quite nicely 
with concepts like parsing and the use of macros, and the 
reading was leisurely and ideal for beginners. 

There were also several hypolhelieal examples, which 
although not very useful in themselves, will give a good 
understanding of Aflexx programming when worked through. 

There are sorting examples, recursive problem-solving 
examples, and some uwfU text processing examples. In all 
of thess. the author's enthusiasm lor the language spills over. 

I felt that there was not sufficient coverage of using ARexx 
with AmigaDOS,. and there is no mention of the rexxsupport 
library, or of setting up loops to receive ARexx messages, 
Then again, these subjects may be a bit beyond the scope of 
a book like this. 

On the other hand there is good general discussion on how

these, you will find some commands to .send and receive character 
strings, delect a phone ring, and reset an interrupted connection. 

Even if a tenninjj has no explicit facilities for execuiiog CD or 
ARexx programs - so king js :i can nun ARexx scripts - there is no 
real problem; with a suitable script, die machine can be controlled 
directly from ARexx. bypassing die need for special terminal com- 
mands, As always, there's more than one way to skin a cat when 
using ARexx. 

So, your script could contain a Uxvp that checked each line com- 


ing in from the remote machine, 
most likely by using the Parse 
instruction. A Select statement could 
then look out for keywords which 
you had predefined, eg CLIit, 

AREXXit. SendToProgram or 
whatever,.. 

Q iintnands lor the CD would lx: 
handled by the standard ARexx 
ADDRESS COMMAND mx Insmie- 
|k>n. Their output or results could 
ix* redirected to temporary fifes, nr 
pipes, and then seni hack to the 
remote machine via your terminal's 
SEND command, as we saw in die 
last issue. An expensive diseuwinn of 
redirection can be found feck an the 
July issue. 

If you needed access to ARexx 
facilities you could use the J ntcrprci 
Instruction, which allows arbitrary' 
strings to be processed just as if they 
were pan. of the ARexx program 
Itself. In this way, not only could 
you control remote ARexx-compatible appllcarEons, biit you could 
also run little ARexx scripts on the fly, without even having a CD 
window to run them from! 

Interpret is one of the more important and powerful ARexx 
instructions* and since it has not yet got all the attention it deserves, 
we will fe looking at it next time! 


Distant voices 


Rexx cookbook 


to use ARexx to enhance applications which have ARexx inter- 
faces. Coverage is also given to certain specific subjects, and if 
your interests coincide with these subjects, then this book could 
be for you. 

There are a couple of good examples given tor using ARexx 
with Art Department Pro. as well as some programs to oeat 
with aspect ratio scaling. There are also scripts for the 
TuitoText editor. 

1 particularly enjoyed the section on using ARexx to control 
PostScript devices, which has some useful suggestions. 

Two Cookbook companion disks are available at extra cost. 
The first one contains the example code from the book, as well 
as some useful freely distributable libraries. The 
Rexx Arp Lib. library in particular is a very handy piece oC ARexx 
kit, and allows you to use the Amiga system graphics. 

I was pleased to see that it was the latest version, which is 
compatible with Workbench 2.0. There are also some macros 
for FinalCopy, and other programs, 

The second disk contains code for an ARexx Index builder 
for DTP {useful), some utilities tor viewing 24-bit pictures with 
Directory Opus, and some stuff for exploiting the jpeg compres- 
sion of AD Pm. All pretty specialised stuff. There Is al so some 
amusing code for producing “starfradEis" using PostScript or 
MathVisson. 

At £35 including the disks, the book is pney - but perhaps 
this is Inevitable with US Imports. If it cost half its current price, I

I would also recommend it if you have a PostScript laser

so on... 

Courtesy of tht feet ycxi're already reading AC it's a safe bet you 
already have a machine. However for those contemplating an 
upgrade I strongly suggest that you consider a desktop-style 
machine such as the A WOO. A300Q or A4000, due entirely to the 
expandability that Zorro slots provide. 

Thanks to the nature of DTV. the add-ons never seem to end - 
and to employ them effectively extra RAM, extra storage and tledi- 
eated add-ons plus acceleration is often a must. 

For basic lifting neither Zones nor excessive speed are essential, 
but if you're planning to take your IMA' further an 030 is really the 
minimum for effective animation, presentation and post-production 
work. 

Lastly if you're planning to add ray-tracing to your repertoire 
ensure that an FPU comes as pan of you new machi ne nr accelera- 
tor. Ray-tracing without an FP1 * can lx? incredibly slow - as indeed 
cut all heavy tiumlxT-oundiing applications. 

Despite the fad that DPainl can he painfully slow in its AG A 
form, it nevertheless remains the key animating tool ftir any sys- 
tem. If however ytxir aspirations go further than spinning logos, 
title scrolls and backdrops. 3D is probably your next move, 

IF .so, the choice falls between Imagine? and Real 31) Classic. 
Although there's a vast array of programs available, this duo offer 
by far tiie best performance-toprice ratio. 

SUPERIOR ANIMATION 

Both packages retail at roughly the same price with Seal 3D 
providing a simpler window into 3D, while Imagine? offers superi- 
or animation and photorealism 

.Although noi essemfal for basic DTV, the flexibility and added 
creativity thal image processing offers can pul die Amiga alongside 
even tile most powerful digital video systems. 

As far as image processing is concerned there's one package 
duit quite literally blows the npjiositiofi away. If you've not already 
guessed, the software in question is the all-conquering ADPro. 

Even though ADPro has suffered stiff competition lately with the 
arrival of ImageFX and Image Mr Master - both of which offer 
impressive performance - it holds its position as the premier 1)TV 
image engine thanks almost entirely to ProCnntml 

Courtesy of this die latest member of the ADPro family, auto- 
mated multi-frame image processing is a simple matter of pointing 
and clicking. Even highly complex DVE$ can be simulated with the 
aid of the program's built-in incrementing variables. When this is 
combined with its composition and special effects features, its 
quite simply unbeatable. 

If you're a regular to the glossy folds til AC. there's a strong 
chance you've already been exposed to one of the leading con- 
tenders in die title race, namely ScalaHVT— which appeared in the 
June issue. The aforementioned HVT is far from alone in die hud- 


The future... 

With the arrival otthe Amiga CD32, the Mpeg revolution is 
only [usl around the corner. Although not shipping with 
the CQ32, the Mpeg module is planned for release In the 
autumn. Speaking from experience I can tell you the full- 
motion video or FMV ottered by the module is nothing 
short of spectacular. 

When - as promised - Mpeg technology spreads to the 
A 1000 and A 1200. DTV could see the biggest change in 
the history of the machine. As yet It's unclear whether the 
Mpeg chips will be accessible by the Amiga itself or sim- 
ply as a spooling medium ior the CD-ROM. 

If as expected the technology will be a shared commod- 
ity, animation could be spooled to the chips direct from 
hard disk thereby providing full frame digital video and at 
reasonable cost of space and expense 


VIDEO 


get market being hotly pursued by BAS2 
from Alternative Image, However for thy 
power players ihflfr’s again a choke of two 
power programs in the form of Broadcast 
Tiller II and Sealu MM2flQ. 

Even though the former offers excellent 
titling and extremely smooth scrolling If 
badly lacks the flexibility offered by MM2QG - 
;i program which can not only lisle video but 
also provide animated backdrops, link* to 
other media including display boards. CD 
acid CD-ROM, Midi and much more besides. 

Besides the footage itself music is perhaps 
the most important aspect of any production. 
And again there p sa huge array of sequencing 
and sampling combinations with w hich to 
build a production. 

However in the best traditions of out "not 
much expense spared guide eq DTV" she ulti- 
mate combination has to tie B&FPro2 and 
the SaiiKize range of 12 and L 6-hfci direct -to- 





disk samplers. 

As for sequencing. MPProZ simply can’t be beaten. It's last, 
flexible and incredibly powerful while acting as a centre-pin for J 
wltole family of add-ons such as Superjaml.1 - a program that can 
generate perfectly acceptable background music in the style of 
your choice in seconds. 

B&PPro also has the added bonus of Media Madness - an ele- 
ment of the program which provides control over external devices 
such as genlocks and laser discs in addition to direct ARexx control 
over -other programs such as the aforementioned toil a MM20& 

On the sampling side the SunRize 12 and l6-bdt boards win die 
day not only because of quality but also their affinity with B&PPro2 
which can control both of them, thereby adding frame-accurate 
soundtracks and special effects to live Midi output while wnokig 
Seda titling and animation at the same time. 

However be wanted - you'll need an AAb>TX with a sizeable 
RAM and hard disk to achieve such a high degree dl automated 
co-ordklaticm 

As far as plug-ins go the list is- endless, hut In my opinion the 
hottest item al ihe moment has to be VLab Y/C. Although merely a 
humble high performance full-frame grabber in the past, this latest 
y/C mvfetofi has revolutionised DTV by providing access co accu- 
rate sequential grabbing. 

Once processed with a oombfetatlofi ol ADPro and PmCtmirok 
these sequential creations mean apparently live action DVEs arc- 
now within the reach of anyone. 

On the playback skk n DCTV still remains die only method that 
comes close to 25 frames per second full-screen playback - 
although when large areas are animated even DCTV suffers badly, 

In addition, the unit also lack* the ability to genlock with live 
video due to its composite-only output. As a. result the talents of a 
fast AG A Amiga arc often mote useful - especially when smaller 
scale animation is require

ascal was designed as a teaching Language way back in 
1971 by Professor NLc-klaus Wirtb. Consequently, it is. 
exceedingly good for teaching the fundamentals of com- 
puter programming and developing a structured, methodical 
approach to writing code. 

Over the year^ Pascal has lieen implemented on die majority of 
computers and numerous derations have I wen made from die ISO 
specification by ctjtnptlcf writers, 

TTiis has hud the effect of making the Language less portable than 
it once was, although the key features have always remained intact. 

The must popular version lias set a de facto standard on the IBM 
PC in the form of Turbo Pascal, This lias been implemented as 
Highspeed Pascal on the Amiga by HIS oft in conjunction with 
D-House 

As you would expect, this dialect allows access to all of the 
Amiga's opt rating .system routines as well as providing compatibili- 
ty with Turbo Pascal. 

■ 

In Amiga circles, there are two kinds of Highspeed Pascal pro- 
grauuner - those who already know the Pascal language, but need 
to learn sortie Amiga specifics, and those who are complete 
novices. 

Because the more experienced programmers are quite capable 
of learning ail about the inner workings of the Amiga by them- 
selves, we must ask them to do just that for the time bring. 

1 realise that this will leave one or two Pascal-literate renders 
wondering where to start, so let's point them in ibe right direction, 

Anyone eager to take on the Amiga s operating system will need 
to obtain the ROM Kernel Reference manuals wttich are avail alike 
from all good book shops iw directly from HiSoft buying the com- 
plete set in one go i.s an expensive business so you may find it use- 
ful to buy them one at a time, as finances permit This begs the 
question: Which one should J buy first? 

Without a doubt,, the most useful starting point is with the 
Libraries RKBM which covers topics such as screens, windows, 
menus, gadgets and ail tlie tubers needed to give your programs 
die Amiga, look. After that you will soon find that you want a copy 
of the Devices RKRM 


START FROM SCRATCH 

Although the manuals include example code written in C, the 
accompanying tutorials provide good explanations anti sufficient 
detail to convert them to Pascal. 

I would advise you nut to attempt a straight inversion, but to 
start from scratch as this will give you a letter understanding of 
what the programs do and how they do it. 

It is not absolutely necessary to know how to program in C in 
order to understand the manuals, though this is clearly M 
advantage. 

Once you know- the names of the routines tliat you need, look 
through die Units to find out whether they have been implemented 
as procedures or functions. Having done that, you should lx. 1 well 
on die way to writing some nice-looking programs. 

For die time being, this column will concentrate on teaching die 
ftinda mentals of Pascal programming and will tackle the Likes of 
Intuition, Devices and so on some time in the future. 

Traditionally, the first program anyone writes with a new lan- 
guage is die Hello World example. In Pascal it tools Like this: 

Erevan Nil loHgr id; 
teqir r 

HritELnCMiLLc itorLd. 1 ); 

mi, 

The first Line indicates that you are looking at a program, rather 
titan any old text lile, and that it b> called HdloWorld. By Conven- 
tion. the program is stored in a rile of tin: same name Ixit with a fife 
extension of .pas:, for instance

Tlie word begin indicates the start of the program while the end 
of the program is marked by the word end., Tlie bod)' of die pro- 



grain is that part of the program that lies 
between these l>egin-end brackets and in 
this case takes the form of a single 
statement. 

In Pascal, each statement is terminated by 
a semi-colon ( : ) with the exception of the 
final end statement, which is fallowed by a 
full stop to indicate the end of the program. 

\ his allows king statements to be split over 
several lines to make tlie program more 
readable, 

Having produced the simplest of pro- 
grams, we are now going to take a closet 
look ai text output. Hie writeln procedure 
follows its output with a carnage return and 
Line feed so that subsequent output will 
appear on die next line down. For example, 
if we wanted to out put die text: 

a 

I? tint hs;ai croqrai ii laUfd: 

Utile idrld. 

we would add a writeln statement to the 


■tf h i.' 


y m ft. 





Pascal for 


beginners 

program: 

Prn^il Hflt&Horld; 
big in 

•HtflflCHy tir&t Pinal pT^grai is- tailed?*}; 
nHtilnriiLlo World. 1 ).; 
cniri 

The writeln procedure is very similar to a procedure called write, 
the only difference being dial vi rile does not move the output pota- 
tion to die next line. 

To demonstrate this, change the first writeln into write and run 
the program again. In order to make the output more readable, you 
might like to add a space after the colon in the diird Line, 

1 laving done (hat. we now will alter the output to read: 


Colin Yamall 
says “Hello 
World!" in the 
language of 
the academics 


Tlris is first ?bicj 1 prgf"ift,, It's <iUtd:

Notice diat we need to use an apostrophe which is the same charac- 
ter trial wc use to mark a text string. If we were to use tin 1 line: 

irrl til n< N Tits is firs? pfdgnt, it's called : 1 J; 


the compiler wrouid be confused because it is expecting a pair of 
delimiting apostrophes I mi set's a line w ith three of them. To work 
around diis, it is necessary lo use a fourth apostrophe to tell the 
compiler exactly what we mean- 

MriteLoC'Th-is is i? fi nl progm, ir'i ciklid:'!;

A 


s you're probably we[[ aware, the AD516 16 dsrm-n.H 
dj:sk sampler has tel around for some dme. However 
with me DSP still mining on the Amiga, and (he lack of 
any serious competition from other diirdparty developer, il still 
remains die only tree CD-quality mastering system on die machine. 

Regardless of oilier Factors, the AD516'5 specification alone 
makes il an attractive route to true digital recording, Eight-track 
mono -four-track stereo, vutual memory r direr [-to disk storage, CD- 
quality recording and simultaneous play hack plus a £400 price 
drop allow the Ixiard to retail at a new' bargain price of appnsxj 
irately A1 ,000. 

Before delving into the hardware itself, it’s perhaps worth 
explaining why 16-hit sound is so special, In short, the whole 
equation revolve around die .SNR. or signal-to-noise ratio of the 
various format*. 


At best, 8-bit sampling has a theoretical maximum sine wave of 
•kSilB - roughly that of AM radio. Twelve- bii manages a much 
improved " r 2d0s, or more of less FM quality, while the 16-bit 
reproduction of die AD516 stretches die sine wave to (he limits of 
the human ear at ^fxIPs, or CD quality. 

Assuming you have a sound source coming in and an output 10 
some form of amplification, sampling 1* simply a matter ot loading 
the software and opening the Meier window plus either the 
Transport or Recorder windows - either of which can start the 
sampling process. 

Prior to any sampling you must first specify the destination for 



ed, the program's excellent sample .sequenc- 
ing capabilities more than make amends. 
Unlike it* counterparts. Smdiolri has a pn* 
f ess tonal and flexible approach to the 
problem. 

Thanks to the SMPTH-In tm the rear of the 
beard and the Cueltsi within the software, an 
unlimited number of samples can be 
assigned rci- specific dmeonde positions. 

As a result, anyone - whether they be a 
musician or videographer - need only strip 
their tape with SMFTEl (LTC) timecode and 
send the subsequent signal to die board, 

My only complaint is that the board and 
software romhination can only read rather 
than write SMPTE timecode. 

Th is is particularly annoying as the pro- 
gram generates its own internal Timecode In 
order to sync the Cuellst and as a source 
with which to communicate directly with 
Bar* & Pipes professional 2 - the only 
sequencer supported by the board Because 




die sample via the Master preferences - which can of course .save 
out default settings. If the monitor option is selected the incoming 
signal will be displayed on the analogue, digital and grupliiea] di*- 
plays within the meter windows, 

From within Record Transport or Mixer you can adjust the gain 
of the incoming signal to provide die perfect input and output 
level for the board. 

When satisfied with the various levels, filter settings, and of 
course sampling rate, you can hit record, instantly capturing the 
incoming signal. 

iTie captive can then be renamed if necessary and assigned to 
an appropriate channel for playback. From then on. adding more 
samples is simply a matter of repetition. 

POWERFUL CONTROLS 

Obviously it won't lx: long before die samples start to- pile up. 
and it's at this- point when the power of the transport controls 
comes into its own. 

If you've ever used a four-track, or almost any analogue equip 
inenl, the phrase "ping-pong recording will be a familiar one. 

Basically, "ping-ponging" allows you to mix any existing sam- 
ples with each odier or as part of a new sample. Once mastered 
this technique mom an unlimited number of samples can be com- 
bined into a new super-sample, thus freeing the original duiu^ls 
for fresh recording 

Using this approach, huge sounds Gin be bulll up in stage*. 
And because you're working with digital rather than analogue 
there's absolutely no sound degradaiion. 

The only restriction is that ad ping ponging operations are 
destructive, so- if a remix is required the original component sam- 
ples must Ik: put in storage until you're absolutely happy with the 
mix - the question is, will you I tave any space to store them? 1 

Once a sample is recorded - stereo or mono - ii can lie high- 
lighted within the Openlsst and ediied via its own sample editing 
window. 

The usual array of cm, copy and | are all on hand with a 
few more advanced features such as scale, flip, lade anil freehand 
Unfortunately f although well implemented and easy to use, editing 
is pretty basic and does suffer badly against even some 8-bii edit- 
ing system*. However even though riie ediling and effects are limit- 


of this annoying omission, you're almost forced to invest in an 
SMPTE timecode generator - assuming you r source cannot generate 
its (mn - in order to strip the tape prior to synchronisation 

he ?r strictly Mkih based systems the problem is compounded, ns not 
only is an SMPTE generator essential, but also a MidHo-SMFTE can- 
verter - unless of course you're employing the direct link with 
B&PProZ 

A* mentioned earlier, Bar* & Pipes Pro can sync directly with, the 
"cuelisU, Consequently the output of the board and MPFrofi can be 
direedy synced without the need for an external SMPTE signal. 

Thus it's possible to cue samples to specify Midi note* allowing a 
perfect combination of samples, music and video - assuming the 
sync Is provided from the video source. 

Another option is to sync an entire (rack or even tracks to the Midi 
output, thereby allowing analogue specialities such as guitar solos, 
acoustic instruments anil vocals to Ik 1 added to the Midi output - pro- 
viding a pure digital recording from start to finish,

ITO Amiga Computing 


October 1 993 







longisih time ago I joined a new exciting service 
olltrd die Dirtxc Connexion. It had a lul of tiling 
which my cHher services didn't have ~ Usenet read 


and write, Fax gateway, on-line news from Kews bytes and 


other sen ices too numerous to mention 


Then CIX got all these things, plus Internet too, and my 
interest in TDC laded a little. Sine I si\\l logged on once in a 
while to pick up my messages, flick the news and write to 
Usenet, but it wasn't where I lived. 


Resides I could gel mostly what 3 wanted via OX and other 
sources so there wasn't really any need for me to take on 
another service But this may change soon. 

Last week I logged on to pick up my mail and T got .1 bit of a 
surprise. The board lias got itself a new took, n also has some 
more muscular facilities. Not only does it now have Internet 
access, but also FI?, Gopher, Archie and other on-line Internet 
utility programs. 


Read/write gateway 


The layout of the internet staff is much more logical than the 
rather more open CIX Internet gateway, giving you a range of 
choices rather than just a prompt. The Usenet: ready is a trifle 
complex, bgl it is a genuine read write gateway, not unlike the 
one that CIX rested on its beta machine a few months ago. 

The organisation of the board Ls good, and most functions 
are available from the command line, like GO MAIN, GO MAIL, 
GO KM 3 . 10 save time Flipping from menu DO menu. Mail is sull 


COMMS 


a trifle cumbersome, and in a lot of 
menus you can t use short-cuts like GO 
MA for mail. Rii for read like you can on 
OX. Still, fair's lair, I wouldn’t tike this 10 
Sum into a competition between CIX and 
1DC Both have their good side, and bodi 
have things which are devilishly 
annoying. 

One thing I do like very much at the 
moment is the FTP access, which is great, 
allowing a number of oft-used FT? sites to 
exist on a menu, helping to avoid exten- 
sive keying in. 

OK, you can arrange for .scripts and 
macro keys, but then again you can also 
spend a lor of time keying stuff in and 
waiting for the next menu ixforc you hit 
the macro key 

I don't know why but it also seems to 
me dial the link at TDC is much faster, 
Ijess people on line';' I think perhaps there 





Lagg/ng on to the Drraet Conociion 


might he, but all the same the speed seems fester to me. Might be 
my imagination but try it yourself and see... 

E like the new look, and I think you will too. If you comm M 
rates between 2 P 400 and R-tOO \'S2, vjibis, V42 MNP and so on, 
then you can use TDC 

Membership Ls cheap too, vv ith - as least when 3 pined - a sim- 
ple monthly charge. Don’t get me w rong here. CTX is still my main 
man, but now if the lines are busy l have an alternative...

bil of an odd edition of the column this month, 
as it's almost entirely composed of listings. 

I knew you folk wouldn't disappoint me! No 
sooner do I mention that there's a compo here in the 
Amos column than we re up to our collective butts in 
disks. Now after much deliberation we've come up with 
the winder Yes, it's Mandelbrot Explorer by William 
Creasy of Hawthorn. Victoria, Australia. 

He says "i come from afar, and so hopefully noi too 
late! Hope you like my effort ’ Well, Will far from just 
being us: an effort, yours is a rather good effort. Let's 
take il lo bits and see. 

Fractals are all maths and little magic really, but Will's 
program does some very clever stuff, Clever particularly 
how the ipnogram matches mouse zones with subrou- 
tines, also using a IFF picture of a fractal as the initial 
drawing and then using that to redraw (he zoomed areas. 

In order to make She program work you must load the 
bank 5 and bank 6 abk tiles from the CoverOisk into bank 
5 and 6 (easy), and save them with the typed-in program 
i:he source code is on (he disk too!). Then the IFF files 
can be UnSpacked as it were. 

Mice one, Will. Big prize to you. Back to our regular 
service next issue,

qw that we have the design concept of the individual 
elements char make up our company or “corporate" 
im:agu clear in our beads, we need to look at applying a 


structure to them. 


PUBLISHING 


It's one thing to have chosen all our dements correctly t but 
unless there h consistency in she way the main elements are kill 
down on each individual piece of stationery, the end result will 
come olji looking like a dog's dinner, 

An example of this would be when the company logo is 
placed on die right-hand side of the letterhead but on the left- 
hand side of the compliment slip. 

Even worse than this would be to place the company name 
vertically down the page on the letterhead but then place it 
across the top nf the compliment slip when you realise ji won't 
'it down the side, 


around- One Ls reserved for the IxkIv copy 
of the letter, and the second is for the 
name and address ol the letter s recipient, 
especially important if your company uses 
window envelopes. 

Once you have marked out these areas 
you can start work on the compliment slip 
anil see if there are any areas on it that 
may conflict with any ideas that are start- 
ing to form after the design nf the letter- 
head, 


The way to avoid making these mistakes is to make sure that 
the placement of the main elements on each piece of stationery 
Is consistent. If you place the company name in the centre of the 
page on one piece then if should be placed in a .similar position 
on the ocher two pieces. The company name Is visually promi- 
nent in the design that makes up the “company image", 

One dement lItjii you can get way with placing in a different 
position is the text for the name and address, which may have to 
he placed in a different [josirion to fit in with the different sizes 


An ideal size for a compliment slip is 
one third of an A4 page, in a horizontal, 
or landscape aspect Choosing this size 
enables you to place three on the one A j 
page, so will keep costs to a minimum. 
There are two areas that need to he 
looked at that are common to the compli- 
ment slip. The first is an area of the page 
tor note* to be scribbled This can Ik- any 


of stationery. 

So while still in the design 
stage pul in some thought as in- 
flow the elements can be 
arranged on all the pieces s o that 
they appear as one element and 
not a number of individuals. 

You will need to look ai die 




different pieces of stationery and 

the limitations they impose on your design. Once you have gone 
through this process you are within sight of finishing your sta- 
tionery pack. 

With this in mind we can now turn our attention to seeing 
how we cto place the company image m the first of the three 
pieces of stationery we need to produc e, the letterhead. 

Typically die size of this will lie A4, but there is the option of 
placing the dements for the letterhead on the top two thirds of 
the page, producing a short letter, leaving spare for a compli- 
ment slip on the bottom third of the pyge which will be cut off 
after printing. 

After having settled on a page size you can now look at your 
options for placing the elements that make up your company 
image within the boundaries of that page. 

There are two areas on die letterhead that need to be worked 



The essential togr#dtonf in efl fhres of pieces of 
stationery is Chat the Company image remains 


?jize r although I be smaller i! is the more cramped die compliment 
slip starts to look. 

The second addition is a line containing the words "with com- 
pliments'’, These should be in a contrasting typeface so they do 
not merge with the test of the text. 

IE your text for ilie address is in a modem srins serif font like 
I i iumvinite. then you have the option of placing the "with com- 
pliments" in a traditional serif typeface like Times. 

This principle needs to applied to the text which will be used 
or the business card for the name of the person the business 
card will represent. 

The danger when reducing all the elements From your design 
to a size to (it on the business cart! Is that when you place the 
recipients name on there it will Ixr last amid die other text. 

Instead of placing it in a contrasting typeface you can make it 
.stand out from the rest of the dements merely by enlarging it 
and setting it in bold, making sure you have plenty of white 
space a round it. 

The size of your card is dictat- 
ed by die spaced allocated for it 
sn holders designed especially 
for business cards. A good size 
to go for is 90mm by 60mm, 
which will enable you to gel 
four on a A5 page. 

Once you have looked at 
ibe three pieces of stationery 
you can take your design and 
Set about laying it out in your 
publishing program 

You're on you own now. 

Publishing at this stage h 
easy, it's the design process 
that’s bard work, but next 
month we '13 look tit turning 
your software layouts into 
piles of stationery. 



Ben Pointer 
converts 
concepts into 
reality in his 
continuing look 
at a stationery 
pack 



^.6df when your design changes in each of the separate pieces 
of stationery, the who to image comes across as amateurish

Hi-res monitor for At 200 And A4000 
Supplier : Silica Systems 
Phone; 081-30$ Wi 
Price : £399 


ased in creamy plastk, and physically identical 
\ except for 3 swivel stand to the medium resolo 
0 - tion I0&4S. Commodore's 1942 monitor is an 

jr 

attempt to sort out the confusion ,and meompatibility 
currently rife in the AGA market 

In itself, it is a welcome attempt to meet the demands of a 
growing user base with Hide or ng idea which monitors will 
work, and as this one assuredly does work k will succeed, but 
it must still be judged as a monitor. 

Clocking in at a respectable .2Smm dot pitch, the 1942 is 
good for up to about 800 by 600 resolution screens wsthout 
blurring or eye strain. 

Dot pitch, for those who haven't encountered the term 







With confusion over screen modes and 
monitors reaching fever pitch, Commodore 
have at last come to the rescue with the 
1942, a monitor for AG A Amigas 


before, relates to the size of each dot used on the monitor 
screen, so the smaller the better, and .2Bmm is the standard for 
moss PC WGA monitors.. 

The screen, with its E4in CRT and I3in visible area, is hardly 
vise, and couldn't be accused of implementing Flat square tube 
technology, but it is adequate 

Supplied with each monitor is a brief user guide to setting 
the thing up and attaching the swivel stand, a Commodore 
AGA monitor adaptor, and Wang warranty card. There is no 
software, chough as users will soon discover, it is badly needed 

On booting the oFFice A4Q0G, the 1942's display was badly 
out of centre, with about two inches of useless gap on the left 
hand edge of the screen 

The impressive bank of knobs behind the unit's front panel, 
including homoncal and vertical shift and size opttom, helped a 
little, but the visible area was too far askew to be of much use. 


preferences programs and a list oF monitor drivers with later 
versions designed to work property with the 1942, and after a 
fairly tedious session of faffing about wich overscan settings the 
problem was solved. 

h is to be hoped that this, disk will be distributed with future 
monitors, as not many users have access to bulletin boards. 

Sound is the ate in the pack as far as this VDU is concerned, 
as ft is one of the very few VGA standard monitors m existence 
which has a built-in stereo amp and speaker^ Given the market 
at which it is aimed, this is a very sensible decision, and as the 
sound is perfectly good, even at maximum volume, users 
upgrading from the I DS4S will find no cause for complaint. 

Offered a chance to try it out, many PC game players and 
enthusiasts m-.gjht plump for she 11942 rather than the monitor 
with speakers and cables flying around nil over the place which 


A quick trip to our favourite bulletin board furnished us with 



Hove Wt findlJy 
seen th e en d of 
iereen confusion? 


is more the norm in the deaf world of the mute IBM, 

With a little hassle and the proper setup software, the 1942 
is 1 good answer to what has been 3 very boring problem since 
the AGA machines were released, and if nothing else will make 
liFe easier by providing some sore of choice. 


Fun Colour 


256-colour enhancement module for all ECS Amigas 
Supplier; Power Computing 
Phone; 0234 943388 
Price: £39 


Fun Colour is an external digital colour modulator for the 
Amiga 500/6W. In other words, if youTe i graphic artist who's 
tired by the slight fringe co colours that HAM regularly pro- 
duces and want near photographic quality images that are good 
enoi^gh for presentations^ tape slides and are genlock compati* 
ble with video, then this package: offers an ideal solution. 

By using the hardware module Supplied which fits into the 
Amiga's monitor port, Fun Colour is, able to convert colour 
data through Workbench or CU into i crisp true colour 
image. 

It also Caters for several different Image formats which 
include EFF, EFF-B, IFF -2 4„ HamS and GIF so compatibifity 
shouldn't be a problem 

The program itself is simple to use and offers various graphi- 
cal enhancements Such as dither, lacing and overscan to suit the 
exact specifications of the picture you want. After this, it's a 
case of loading in the image and Fun Colour will Lake care of 
the rest. 

My only gripes with the package are the odd pixel glitches 
present on the final image which only disappear when you 
move the mouse. This can lead to irritation when you have to 
wait for the picture to load in all over ogam because you want

the besc ire-su It. Also, the ’’quick 1 ' and "besc" options which 
refer to the quality of the end picture seem for some unknown 
reason eo take an equal amount of time to dnw_ 

The fast problem lies with the hardware module itself there 
is m way of connecting it Co the monitor cable securely with- 
out the use of scieky tape, so subsequently if you* move che 
computer at all during operation, chances are that the lead wid 
slip out slightly and you'll lose the picture which isn't too 
healthy for the Amiga. 

These grumbles aside. Fun Colour offers excellent v^lue for 
money and delivers an affordable seep Up co ASiOO-qualscy

AlfaScan Plus 




AJfb CoJoor software h wallobl* for the new colour modd 


256 greyscale hand scanner with Touch Up 
and Merge It software 
Supplier; Golden image 
Phone: Ott-365 1102 
Price: £1 19,95 


Alfascan is an affordable and easy co use black-and-white scan- 
ner system which is compatible with all Amiga* with one 
megabyte of memory and above, The package offers a scanner 


which is able co optically read anything from a photograph to a 
newspaper column and Touch-Up, a graphics program used co 
refine and enhance the images read by the scanner, 

The hand-held device has Sis areas of interest: the DPI set- 
tings switch (103, 200, 300 and for best results 4Mdpi); a con- 
trast thumbwheel for controlling the difference between the 
lighter and darker areal of the 'mage; and a text-to-photo swicch 
with four settings which enables a clearer dtTnkion for either 
text (solid with no halftones) or photographic (tonal variation) 


based material. Once these options have been adjusted to 
your exact requirements, she scanner can be made ready for 
operation via che Touch-Up software- A green scrip light 
comes on to tell you it's ready co go and all that needs to be 
done is co line up the reader head with che material and press 
the Start button. 

The item co he read muse be on a flat and even surface to 
ensure chat the scanner can get the best reading possible. 

Keeping chis button pressed down, it's simply a case of 
moving the scanner horizontally or vertically (portrait or land- 
scape) slowly along your chosen picture, up to and including 
che maximum size of A A While you're doing this, the image 
will be printed up onto the screen. 

Once che reading is done, you are free to ad| ust the picture 
with the various tools offered by the Touch-Up graphics 
package 

The fronc end of the program is similar to other arc pack- 
ages hut in black and white A bar gf icons run down the left 
hand-side with the main graphic* area caking up the rest of the 
screen. 

At che top are che pull-down menus which include projects 
management, le loading and saving in a variety -of different file 
formats (IFF. TIFF, IMG and PCX); viewing options: editing,, 
including mirror, re size, slant and Hip facilities for the clipboard 
[more of that later) and a process menu for outline, masking 
and cleaning up the sunned image. 

The program itself is split up into three sets of "work- 
shops"; che scanning, dip and pamung cools. 

The scanner tools are where the parameters for the scan- 


OCR and OCR jr 


Optical Character Recognition software for use with 
AlfaDaia and Mtgreph hand scanners 
Supplier Ga Steiner 
Phone: 031 -365 1151 
Price : £99, &r can be bought 
with scanner for much less 


By setting one of the controls on the scanner to text, 
characters can be scanned and analysed by the Migraph 
OCR software. The object is to transform digitised 
text into an Ascii file so that it may bt used in * word- 
p race? s or, thereby removing the need for 
copy-typing. 

The program split? the digitised image into lines 
then character and word segments. These are analysed 
against mathematical definitions for characters and the 
text is finally output. 

Migraph OCR has been pre-trained to recognise a 
number of fonts which indude 1 among others. Courier, 
Elite, Helvetica, Pica, Elite and Times. 

Images scanned from magazines and books usually 
contain graphics a? well as text. To make things easier 
on the computer, boxes may be drawn around 
unwanted graphics, text and any glitches that may 
have crept into the digitised image- If only one or two 


areas contain test that you are interested in, those can 
be boxed and analysed. Occasionally* graphics may be 
inset into text at the start of a column. Ab welP as rect- 
angular boxes, Migraph OCR allow? composite bOJOH 
to be drawn which is useful in such situations. 

There are two modes of character recognition: 
interactive and automatic. In interactive mode, 
unrecognised characters from the digitised 
image are displayed together with the program's best 
guess. 

The user can then opt to accept the guess, if it is 
correct, to enter the right characters or ignore the 
offending section of the scan. 

In automatic mode, the process It the same except 
that where a best guess cannot be made, an ampersand 
(Sr) is inserted* Once the text has been output to a file, 
it may be loaded into i wardprocessor and corrected 
there. 

Like the Merge-lt software, Migraph-OCR works 
best when the scanner is used in conjunction with a 
commercial scanning tray. In the absence of one of 
these, any improvised gadget that prevents wobble will 
do. 

Mlgraph-OCR does the job it was designed for but is 
not as accurate as the average typist. However* if you 
are a one-flngered typist with a burning desire to trans- 
late the printed word into Ascii files* this package will 
come in bandy. Be advised that a minimum of 2 Mb 
RAM and a hard drive will soon stretch to 8Mb RAM for 
larger documents

ning device are set up. Il Is possible Through the Settings menu 
to alter the amount of width ar>d height that the scanner will 
record of che subject If you wane a small grab then there is no 
point of wasting memory by sunn ng a page of A4. 

The clip tools cover the many different functions of the dip- 
board which is a buffer storage space for cut and paste images. 
Parts of a picture may be scored on the clipboard and adjusted 
with the various effects at your dlsposai. 

Like other art packages, this is achieved by the user select- 
ing che area, drawing a dip box around ic and then selecting one 
of the effects items they want If it'# Mirror, then you're offered 
a menu of reflections to choose from - from the left right, cop 



^■UJltii ft FtSTFtF to

or bottom of the image. 

The small hammer icon gives you access to the 
Miscellaneous Tools menu which offers a vanecy of page 
options from clearing and turning the clip box into full page 
sire to inverting the black and white image to its negative 
councenpan. 

My only grumble is that you can't undo an efect once it's 
been applied. This means IF you're not happy with the result, 
it's time to bad or even scan the image aga?n. 

Nexc up are the painting cools which control the drawing 
devices used to touch up your picture. On offer are spray can, 
pencil, circle and rectangle construction tools, fill, line type, 
eraser, sketch, curves and lasso options among other#. 

The Curve# function creates either a S-spine or Bener 
curve which are constructed from, in the former cast, several, 
and in the latter, four individually user pbtted points. By press* 
ing on each point and moving ft the Curve follows and is able to 
become a multi-curved brush that can be painted with. 

The Lasso tool lets you create a freehand brush co be used 
onscreen. Simply draw around the part of the image, Sift ft off 
and use ft 





Textures 

To enhance these last two options is the Pattern palette 
which g-.ves you access to 34 different textures in three differ- 
ent sites. These can be used as “paint" for backdrops or sur- 
faces of scanned pictures. All the tools you create can alio be 
saved on to disk for later use 

The Zoom option offers four different views; full, hi, 2:1 
and 4:1. This magnification is adequate but unfortunately, I was 
only able to paint on the image on 1:1 and none of the others. 
This defeats the purpose of having a Zoom facility in the First 
place... 

For extra fine work. Fatbits gives a fixed magnification 
on a small section of your image that you want to work 
on. By clicking on a black pixel, it wih become white and 
vice-versa. 

This can prove to be annoying because the pointer is not 
IOC per cent accurate ail the time and it's difficult to slap in a 
change without having to go back over It, correcting the 
wrongly coloured pixels. 

It would've been better to leave the pa'ette so that you're 
able co swap between the two when you wanted, 

Once the image has been doctored* 
manipulated and played with, it's time to 
move onto one of the packages most 
impressive features; the 256 greyscale 
conversion 

This tool produces a near-photographic 
quality Image incorporating all che changes 
made. Simply choose the screen display 
wanted from lo-res. interlaced and so on, 
the formal of die file it is co be saved onto P 
and the size of the area to be reproduced. 

The greyscale rendering works extremely 


well and took my oh so skghdy feeble aettmpa ac being an artist 
and mace them look professional. 

Touch Up is a reasonable program overall. A Few mora tools 
such as a. stencil option and a 16 shade black-to-whlte palette 
wouldn't have gone amiss; it's a real pain iryng to create a simi- 
kar colour to grey with just black and white at your disposal. 

Also. I found that the system would just lock up on its own 
sometimes either to release itself a few moments later or 
remain locked up until I reset the machine. 

All these criticisms may not matter if you have a copy of 
Deluxe Paint or other file format-compatible art packages 
because the images can be downloaded to them for the finishing 
touches before being transferred back across for greyscalmg. 

The scanner itself is excellent; clear images and enough 
options to create solid pictures for use in the office or at home. 
My only criticism is that ft's difficult to know exactly whac the 
paraimeters of che scanning window ire when actually using fct; 
some kind of marker would have made life a Iktlc easier. It's a 
Case of lining ic up roughly and seeing wfriat happens, 

Affascart j* a quality product and offers value for money which 
even If you don't have an essential need for, is worth buying 
purely for che pleasure of using it.

ie put, hard disks were strictly for the serious, 
blit wich the ever- increasing number of instal- 
lable faster machines and punier-friendly 


r products, the tables have turned and the 



fester, bigger and beaer storage. 

For those who never wander much further than the games 
section, the apparent complexity of the subject - and the rai>ge 
of hardware - can seem rather daunting. However, the move 
from floppies doesn't have eo be as traumatic as you might 
imagine. 

One oF the biggest misconceptions about a hard disk is chat 
somehow it will; transform your machine from an old friend 
into a iota! stranger set to scotch any attempt at usability, or 
alternatively create an all -singing, alhdancmg automated answer 
to lrfe r the universe and everything. 

In fact. if approached from the right or wrong angle both 
arguments hold water. The angle in question is your level of 
understanding of how a hard disk operates. This could quite lit- 
erally mean the difference between bliss and misery, 

In effect a hard disk is simply a very big, very fast floppy If 
you can keep this concept in mind, managing the beast is a 
whole Ibt easier For example, a hand disk has to have all the 
basic elements the Amiga expects to find on a floppy, 

Essentials 

if the machine can't find essentials such as the C directory it 
won't perform even the mosc basic CU commands as aJmost all 
the CW essentials must be resident in the C directory of the 
system disk, just, as they are when the floppy boots the machine 
- thereby assuming the role of a floppy system disk. 

Whenever the machine is eurned on with a hard disk 
Installed and no floppy present the hard disk immediately 
becomes the system disk and as a result the machine will 
attempt to boot from it and from then on look to it for all the 
fifes asked for either by you, or your software - unless 
instructed otherwise 

The point being that you must he able: to manage your hard 
disk properly by making sure that what the Amiga requires is 
iivailable and in the riglht place. For this reason atone a direc- 
tory manager is essential. 

Fortunately there s a toe of choice in this area with several 
programs in the public domain plus the odd commercial alter- 




To complement this 
month's hard drive 
round-up, Hard Times 
provides a few hints and 
tips on avoiding the hard 
sell when buying 
a hard drive 

native. Notable PO programs including TDM and 5ID2 - both of 
which have been on past /iC CoverDisks - while commercial 
offerings include Directory Opus and Directory Manager. 

For the beginn er a PD program should be more than enough 
as it simply makes the process of copying, moving and managing 
files much easier. 

If however youi feel confident to handle the process via the 
CU or She! feel free. In addition to file management it's essen- 


tial you become comfortable wich the AmigaDQS assign com- 
mand as it becomes invaluable to any hard; dusk user, 

Before handmg over any cash, here's a list of essential ques- 
tions you should put to you supplier. First and foremost, ask 
whether the unit is IDE or SCSI. If it is an IDE. ask if the drive - 
minus the controller card - would fli into either an A&QQ or 
A 1200. 

This is worth knowing even if you're pfenning 10 use the 
drive externally, simply because if you decide eo upgrade your 
machine later on you won't need to invest in a new drive. 

When buying an ASOfr'BQG Plus external, ask if memory can 
be added to the drive, and if so can me machine still use this 
additional RAM when the hard disk is turned off? 

If the unit operates without a power supply, inquire if there 
is an option co add one if necessary. This may be essentia! if you 
plan to use the drive with additional peripherals as the strain on 
the Amiga's internal power may he too much. 

In the same vein, check If the drive offers a DMA Pass- 
through- If noE„ it will be impossible to use additional DMA 
devices such as scanners ar RAM expansions unless they offer a 
DMA through option — ^hereby allowing the drive to be 
appended to them. 

Daisy-chaining 

If you opt, for a SCSI device and wish to take advantage of its 
daisy-ehairung potential ensure that the drive has a SCSI 
through-port. If not you won't be able to expand later on - 
unless you buy another controller card. 

Remember to ask about the speed of the drive, Query the 
drives access time in milliseconds. The fastest drives run at 
around B/l I milliseconds with 17 being the norm for IDEs - 
anything above 20 is pretty sluggish., _ 

If you're pfenning to buy a second-hand unit, make sure the 
drive's original formatting and prep software comes as part of 
the deal. If disaster strikes and you're forced to re-format your 
drive, finding appropriate software can be very difficult - espe- 
cially on older models. 

Finally, wh-en buying a drive make sure you have at least 2Mb 
□f memory in total. As Commodore found out to their cost 
with the AfiOOHD which shipped with only I Mb. many games 
won't run simply because a certain amount oF RAM is required 
to boot the hard disk and Workbench - thereby rendering I Mb 
games unusable. 


SCSI OR IDE? 


Assuming you've decided to take the plunge what's next? Should you go for A 
SCSI or an IDE? Oo I have a choice, and if so what's the difference? 

Well although a slightly complex subject, here are the basks. If you own a 
machine that runs on Workbench 7 or below you have the choice between both IDE 
or SCSI with the essential difference being that SCSI devices are generally a little 
faster and more expandable while IDEs are often cheaper, 

intelligent 

Unlike IDE, the SCSI standard is much more intelligent and as a result can be 
employed to control other devices besides just hard disks. 

In addition, a SCSI controller is moth more self-sufficient than an IDE and won't 
overburden the CPU of the machine when reading or saving data - often the cause 
of apparently slower read/ write times when running an IDE. For the average user 


the difference in speed is barely noticeable^ especially if you*ve just upgraded from a 
floppy system. The thing to bear in mind is that speed in relation to hard disks is 
totally different to what you’re use too. 

For example, in floppy terms speed is usually gauged in minutes while hard disks 
are compared in milliseconds. 

In simple terms* this means that software load-ed on a IDE drive will take longer 
to load in relation to the average SCSI with the effect of increasing when writing to 
the disk. 

On the expansion side, an IDE will support a maximum of two drives 
from one controller while SCSI stretches up to sevem Although a real 
advantage to serious users, these benefits aren't really an issue for the average 
punter. After all, tan you see yourself lashing out for expensive SCSI add-ons or 
extra drives?

c ct> I h rat o rs aren't of any particular use in 
, ^ Amiga Animation, but a hard drive cer- 


CO 

t-amly is. Large animations, especially if 
treated in HAM mode, will consume huge 
swathes of disk spate and should always be 
given the freedom of a hard drive to gallop around 



in. 


Memory is also crucial, but only Up to a point, The 
sort of animations created by most animators not 
using ray tracers ars demanding on chip memory 
{you'll need I Mh chip RAM For sure) but usually 
don't require more than about 2Mh to run in, and a 
lot toss during the creation process. 

If the intention is to produce five-minute long 
demos Stretching across three or four floppies, then 
4Mb RAM would be better, hut for most purposes 
2Mb is ample. 



Coming from the past makers of animation, you'd think this pro- 
gram would be the best arourd That it doesn't quite make Ic to 
the cop of the ladder,, however, shouldn't put off the potential 
animator. 

DAS is made up of three programs, one for treating pencil 
drawings, one for colouring the finished animation* and another 
for synchronising the amm with Sound ejects and other clips of 
animation, In effect, It works in a siml nr manner to the real ami- 
mater*, a fact that the manual is at pains to point out, 

In terms of features, DAS can stand up there with the likes of 
□Paint, but it is most definitely a non- HAM package designed for 
cartoon drawings. 

The onion skin feature, enabling the artist to see the last 
three cells through the present ce I u ideal for creating snsooch 
animations, but if you want a s^mmn^ logo or a HAM animation, 
try another package* 

A* a pfint package, DAS does we enough f not brilliantly, 
but where it scores very highly is in u dedicated nature. Budding 
Disney's can learn a great deal about the animator's art From this 
package, helped by some wonderful Disney demonstration 
aniim* so it is easily the best package for the educational 
environment.

Though a little slow as a HAM paint pat" age. DPum has been 
many things since the release of v3, not the lease of which is 
probably the best animation program ava ar on tN Amiga. 
Version 4‘s "improvements to the already powerful animation 
section have simply reinforced the package”* pmrjon 

Animator? can now use a ‘Tghit table" sum lar to Disney 
‘"onion skin" to enable the creation of smootr- m n- -.!,ons and all 
animation controls, such 3 ? frame advance a r ? frame, h.we 
been gathered together on a VCR-stylc pand fc easier control. 



Put life into pallid pixels 
with some of the Amiga's 
best animation software for 
everyone from beginners to 
Walt Disney 


In addition, there is now a morphing feature which can trans- 
form one brush into another over a series oF frames, and 
though painfully slow, this Feature can he a great aid when 
animating, 

As usual, the D Paint perspective controls and move 
requester are still available* the latter of which has given birth 
Ip countless rotating, tumbling logo animations. As an overall l 
package for the animator, DRamt 4 is number one.

Basically a HAM paint package. Spectracolor was the first Of its 
kind to oFfer animation, and has a few extra features which 
help the program grve DPaint a run for Its money. 

Morphing Is one, a feature which Specctacolof boasted 
many months before DPaint 4 was released, but the brush 
wrapping is Spectracdor's most unique tool. 

This enables the user to pick up a brush then "wrap" it 
around a sphere, tube, or on a of the seven basic shapes sup- 
ported, 10 produce quite remarkable effects For a program in 
this pne-e bracket. 

There are a few drawbacks with Spectracolor, of course, 
and the main one is that it is HAM only. If you warn to pro- 
duct an eighc-coiour anim you tan, but n will just be an eight- 
colour HAM anim, which means slow refresh rates and wasted 
memory. 

To add to this, the animation controls are a lictie difficult co 
come to terms with, so unless thE unique features are desper- 


ately required, Spectracdor is best used as a static image 
generator.

Take 2 


A recent produce and one which is designed more as an ani- 
mation fin^her than something in which to- create the enmre 
arum. For this reason the paint Facility is limited. 

Instead, the .animator creates cells and, more importantly, 
plans which key cells will be used more than once in another 
package, then pons them across to Take 2 for editing. Once 
Ehg cells are available. Take 1 can go to work on them using 
its powerful dope sheet and video scripting utilities. 

The former enables che correct timing of when a frame will 
be played' and the setting up of complex routines co mix and 
match Frames, use them more than once, and generally 
harangue them Into a sequence. Video Scripting enables the 
correlation of scenes and sequences as one large anim ready 
to be taped to video. 

The moic powerful Feature of the program, however, has 
to be 'ts ability to run four level line tests- This means that the 
animator can have up to four separate animations going on at 
once in the same screen, and can edit or cut any one of them 
at any time. 

It rs the sort of Feature usually found only in professional 
packages costing hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds, and 
could lead to Take 2 making an appearance in commercial stu- 
dios as a valuable an d very cheep line tester.

A package with certain similarities to Take 2 . Animation 
Station manages to sit on its own as an animation editor and 
special effects generator. 

Like Take 2. Animation Station is designed to be used once 
all animation cells ire complete, At this stage, the user bads 
the sequent* into Animation Station, and uses the power of 
the package to combine animations, tack others on at the end, 
swap Frames around, and assign times for the exposure of indi- 
vidual frames. 

Special effects, such as wipe?, resting,, strolling, and others 
can be added across a user-defined number of framed making 
it possible For the user to create professional cuts and edits in 
a computer cartoon. 

Animation Station supports all Amiga resolutions and 
screen modes, including interlace and overscan, so it is a great 
tool For use In conjunction with one of the more traditional 
paint and animate packages.
