Colo u r 

Printing 



W* researched the colour printer market at great depth to find a colour printer good anough to cope with Amiga's powerful output, yet ait an affordable price. 

W<r found the perfect printer in the KX - P2I BO and KX - PI 1 21 quiet printer. 

We then considered that if you were going to buy- a Panasonic printer you would probably need a quality word processif^g package m use with it W? Found that too, with WordwonJV yet ac a 
retail price of £.\29 99 we thought that might he a iinle too expensive on top of yowr printer purchase! So together with Panasonic we decided to give a copy of 'Wiordworth' free with every 
Panasonic- pnntcr How's that for added value?

OWNERS of A5LMhh looking to move on to 
32-bit Amiga technology on now 
upgrade their existing machines to the 
latest standard for around half the cost of 
.m A1 200. 

The low-cost option comes from US 
firm Copperhead Technologies (01 0 l 518 
34b 38^4), a company thnt specialises in 
buying, selling and trading second -hand 
Amiga hardware. 

Their AG A Upgrade Kit comes with 
everything needed to transform an ARK! 
mto a PA L-com pat tble A 1 2CH.J, i ne hiding 
a replacement motherboard with a 60020 


processor, Ksckstart 3, 2Mb of RAM and 
IDE hard drive controller. 

An adaptor supplied in the pack 
enables the ASCliTs keyboard to be con- 
nected on to the boards while the 
machined existing internsl disk drive and 
power supply can also be used. 

The mater claims that even users with- 
out any electronics experience should be 
able to complete the project within an 
hour,, although they warn that a minor 
case modiBcation in needed. 

This involves cutting away the plastic 
columns that separate the ports on the 


back of the A 500 case and a small part of 
the plastic Lip that sticks up on the Inside 

Once the board has been fitted the 
mavhme is claimed to operate exactly the 
same as other A 1200s and has Lhe PCM- 
CIA slnt and trap -door found or that 
model. 

Copperhead Technologies do not have 
a British distributor, but they can supply 
by post. The kit costs §225 (about £1 49) 
plus postage, 

Enquiries should be sent to the firm at 
104 Jay Street, Schenectady, NY 1 230 5,

Playing safe with 
games fact sheet 


A CHARITY funded by the 
Government to develop and promote 
the herd technology tor learning has 
drawn up a fact sheet aimed at parents 
of children who play computer and 
video ga mes, 

The National Council for 
E d u i:a t i on a I Techno logy re p o r 1 on 
recent research carried out in the US 
on the effects of playing computer 
games.. 

It comes after media reports earlier 
this year alleging some games could 
cause epilepsy and anti-social 
behaviour, and includes advice from 
the British Epileptic Association. 

According tes the NCET, games 
offer several benefits to help children 
learn, and providing they are not 
played too much and are only one of 
the child's activities the dangers are 
limited. 

Advice is given to combat the possi- 
bility of any health hazards while fur- 
ther research is carried out and a 
checklist is provided to test whether 
children are addicted to games. 

The report says that children 


should sit at least two feet from the 
screen in a well lit room and avoid 
playing while tired. 

Other recommendations are that 
parents should help their children 
choose programs with an educational 
value, ensure games do not contain 
violence and encourage playing in 
groups. 

They should talk to children about 
what happens in the software and use 
games as a starting point for other 
activities such as painting, drawing, 
acting or storytelling. 

"There has been a lol of 
controversy around specific cases 
pointing to the addictive effect 
these games can have on young peo- 
ple, w said NCET spokeswoman Ann 
Logan, 

"Parents ought to be informed of 
the dangers and the possible benefits 
to children."

them back at 25 frames per second, 
makmg it ideal tor multimedia, presen- 
tation and games, 

Al] operations comply with industry 
standards, and animations created

ted with their own Mpeg cards, 

A built-in genlock gives users ability 
to overlay graphics rat their Mpeg video 
animations, making complex mixes of 


Amiga and video footage possible in real time without a video

games store 1 and claim it offers garms players thy largest range of 
leisure software any where. 

It has been named Level One and can be found on the hist floor 
of the firm's flagship store at 1 50 Oxford Street, London, 

Customers enter through a futuristic tunnel which opens into a 
huge floor featuring surround sound, a video games challenge 
area and mood-altering lights. 

The atmosphere of the store changes depending on the time 
and day of the week. 

During mid-week lunch tiroes, for example, the mood is soft 
and relaxing but on Saturdays when younger boxers visit the 
environment is "fast, brash and hypnotic." Customers are able to 


play latest games in a challenge area where up to four teams - 
eight players in all - can compete against each other simultane- 
ously. 

It is expected that around 20U major contests will be 
held every year, with each lasting between two and four hours. 
Anyone can play and then* am I -shirt prizes for winners. 

"Level One offers the greatest choice in the most fantastic retail 
environment/’ says David Terri LI, the company's marketing 
director. J, lt underlines HMVs commitment to this expanding 
market and clearly signals our intent h> become the UK's premier 
games retailer." 

The company plan to have games departments in more than 10 
stones - nearly half their chain - by the end of the year.

it is intended for use with graphics applications. Ascii texl can also be printed. 

The S995 machine needs at least 2Mb of memory and □ free driver is available 
Irom Jls American makers, Fargo Electronics {010 1 612 941 9470). 

The Introduction of an Amiga driver is part ot our continuing efforts to bring 
high qua lily low-cost thermal colour printing to a much wider user base/ said a 
Fargo spokesman, 

“We are excited to make this advanced colour printing technology available to 
such a highly graph ica-tniensive market." 

Fargo are trying to set up British distribution through at least one dealer. 



Speedy storage

company to sell directly to the public. 

Cilizen Direct will kick olf by selling 
the firm's first laser machine, the six- 
page per minute PnoLaser 6000. 

It has a resolution of GOO dots per 
inch and will be sold by Cilizen lor 
£559, Instead of Us usual recom- 
mended retail price of £998, 

According to spokesman Tony 
Byng, savings on distributor and 
dealer margins will enable she com- 
pany to sell products al highly com- 
petitive prices. 

Machines sold by C risen Direct will 
be different from Ihose distributed 
through third -party dealers and there 
are no plane to stock dot matrix 
models. 

“Our decision lo oiler the Citizen 
Pro Laser 6000 via Ihe direct selling 
roule is a first for the industry/

Edward Huggins. 

TMo other printer manufacturer in 
our sector has laken the initi alive to

■ NEWS 


T he latest World of Commodore 
Amiga show in Pasadena r 
California helped boost ihi- 
spirits of a depres^d American A m jga 
market 

After news that a number of well- 
known Coin mod ore engineers had 
defected to companies such as 3 DO and 
Silicon Graphics following the lay-offs of 
many of their compatriots, many of the 
attendees wondered whal Commodore 
would have left to talk about in their 
keynote speech. 

What Commodore talked about was a 
stripped down, "streamlined'” organisa- 
tion that would be abfe to make a profit 
in thf current competitive market 
Commodore US President Jim Dionne 
wryly joked that Commodore had "led 
the way 1 " by announcing huge losses and 
company restructuring before Apple and 





Denny Atkin brings the latest news 
on Commodore’s changing 
fortunes in America 


IBM, 

Some projects would be offered to 
other developers for licensing in the 
hopes that they'd he brought to market 
by other companies This includes the 
DSP board for the A4OG0, which is one 
of many projects that Commodore cur- 
rently have nobody working on, and I he 
AG A de-interlacer board. 

Commodore s already complete net- 
working software, Ethernet adaptor, and 
multiport serial board are also available 
for licensing. They 3 tan talked of releas- 
ing CD32 in the US at the Spring CES 
next year - ii won't be competing w ith 
the Jaguar or 3DO this Christmas here in 
the Stales. 

Lew Eggebrecht, always a font of 
information, did have some good news. 
The next-generation AAA chip set is in 
first-silicon for testing, and should be 
available as planned in mid -3 944, 
Engineers have the test chip set display- 
ing true-colour 24 -bit screens and blit- 
ting objects with its new high-speed 
blitter. 

An interesting - and unconfirmed - 
rumour was that the first AAA machine 
would use the same case, processor ca rd, 
anti slot riser as the A4DQ0, mean mg that 


you could upgrade the A4t!i0n to AAA 
by Simply replacing the motherboard. 
When 1 asked a Commodore engineer 
about this, he said it ivas a possibility. 

Al] in all, she news wasn't great - 
many projects people were excited 
about are on the back burner - but it 
was reassuring. Commodore were very 
straightforward about their current %itu- 
d Hon, and Dionne's outlining of the 
company's game plan showed that the 
company knows that it's going to take 
massive sales of LD32 to gel back on its 
feet in the US* 

Tioni RESIGiua- 

What show goers didn't know, 
though, was that as Dionne was outlin- 
ing the company's future, he was plan- 
ning Ins own future away from 
Commodore. Soon a Her the show ended 
it was confirmed that |im Dionne bad 
announced his resignation at the dealer 
meeting held at the IV OCA show ! , 

Jeff Stilley will move in as the new 
General Manager of Commodore US, 
and the position of president won ' 1 he 
filled, 

Soft-Logik's FageStream 3.U was a 
tug crowd -pleader. Although it was still 


a couple of months I rum shipping, the 
program Was coming together nicety by 
the show. It now sports a user-interface 
that's a perfect model of the Amiga 
Style 1 Guide, has lid I AG A support, and 
finally shows bitmapped pictures in full 
colour 

It exports formats as well as import- 
ing them. Even more Impressive is the 
typography support, which easily rivals 
that of PC and Macintosh programs 
surh as PageMaker 5 and Quark X Press, 
Everything from long-document pub- 
lish ing features to smart quotes and 
automatic ligatures is there. 

Creating ARoxx nut-ms to automate 
your publishing couldn't he easier - just 
turn on Reco rd , perform a series of 
macros, and turn Record back off. 
You've now got an AKexx macro that's 
ready io be run or added to. Company 
reps said they were hoping to ship the 
program in mid -November. Jim Drew 


was tfmn? representing Utilities 
Unlimited, and the software support for 
Ins Emplant board has seen significant 
improvements since 1 reviewed it in 
these pages. 

Emplant 3.15 now supports 24-bit 
video cards (KetiiiEi and Picasso at the 
moment, with EGS and other boards 
coming soon) and stereo sound under 
System 7,x r as well as a host of minor 
improvement*. 

Coming in the next version is "32-bit 
clean" support, which will let it work on 
systems with no MML" and allow you to 
devote more of your Amiga's memory to 
Emplant. 

Drew says the nexl module for 
Emplant will be the IBM emulator, 
although that wasn't shown. Strangely r 
an Apple II emulator was! 

ACCELERATOR 

CVP introduced the Turbo+ 
Ferformance Series 1L an upgraded ver- 
sion id their accelerator board for the 
A12d0 that now sports a full 6h030 (as 
opposed to an EC03QJ running at 
SOM Hz. It also has an option connector 
for further expansion, and the first thing 
provided for that will be the A 1291 SCSI 
module. 

Other products cm display included 
the first US shown ng of CD32, a number 
of graphics boards that l won't bother 
describing since they all originated 
on your side of I be Pond, a l2bMb RAM 
Card for Zorro HI machines from 
DKB software, and many products for 
Video Toaster users, who now make 
up a large portion of the US Amiga mar- 
ket. 

In retrospect, the Pasadena show ivas 
a sign of a shrinking, changing US 
Amiga market. But happily, it didn't 
seem to be the last hurrah. 


When is a toaster not a toaster? 


When It's a product from Warm and Fuzzy Logic called 
Ughftam This is a small box that plugs into the Amiga's jparallel 
port and allows it to run Ihe Video Toaster software - including 
LightWave 30, the rendering software that’s so good that ifs 
been used to create special effects lor Babylon 5 and Steven 
Spielberg's SeaGuest DSV. 

Normally the sollware won'! work without a Toaster mslailed, 
bul Lightravs emulates all ihe Toaster functions that LighlWave 
looks for, 

Not only does this mean lhat North American users can buy 
extra Amigas to use as rendering workstation bul, more signifi- 
cantly for Ihis audience, it mean® you can run UghtWgue 3D cut 
a PAL Amiga! Europe is no longer shut out irom using Ihe 
Amiga's premier rendering soFtware 

UghtravE is more ihgn a dongle, though. The software also 
supports rendering directly to 24 -bit cards such as Retina, 


Gpafvi&ion. DC TV, Firecracker EGS, Piccolo, Picasso, and 
Rainbow 3, as well as io standard Amiga and AGA screens. You 
can also rander directly to GVF's ImageFX software's buffer lor 
further processing 

Ligbtrave requires an Artuga with Workbench 2-04 or later and 
al least 512k of chip RAM and 512k of fast RAM, You'll also 
need Lightwave 2.0 or 3.0, which means you'll either need to 
purchase a Video Toaster board to get the sollware, or purchase 
the Toaster 3.0 sollware upgrade kit from NawTefc, which costs 
about $690. 

There’s no telling if NewTek will make purchasing thq Toaster 
3.0 software more diHicuit due to the existence of Lrghtrave: it's 
currently sold through mail-order deafer? in the US and is readily 
available

Show was as full of bright new' 
ideas as your average tin of beans. 
Where has all the originality gone? 








I n ihf (nr stj years of the computer games 

industry's short history, we have seen thousands of 
games from hundreds of software houses Covering 
scores of machine formats. 

Bright young things working from back bedrooms 
have, over the years, vied with large companies io pro- 
duce that elusive best selling game, and the results have 
often been spactaaiiflr. 

The proportion of competently coded hut dull and 
uninspiring games has always been high, hot every year 
we have two treated feu new game ideas or at least fresh 
rxd ting, approaches to old favourites, Even the seemingly 
played-out areas of flight simulation and sports games 
have taken a new turn from tune to lime. 

ThU year, however,, the progress gravy train seems to 
have come off the rails, and the complete lack of real 
excitement at thla autumns biggest European games 
trade show became increasingly worrying as the Auriga 
Com puling staff searched in vain for something which 
hadn’l been done 100 times before. Platform games, yet 
more flight &ims r and some ID Dungeon Master looka- 
lltes were just about the only items on the menu 

Unlike previous years, when games tike Populous and 
Lemmings have introduced completely new genres to the 
industry and spawned offshoots such as Syndicate and 
Diggers, there was nothing to stop the browsing crowds 
tn their tracks, 

Plenty of business deals were made and a lot of very 
well programmed games were on shim 1 , but the only 
stand sporting an excited little crowd of admirers was the 
one showing a new CP- ROM version of S he Lovers' 
Guide, complete with digitised video footage. Sad, but 
true. 

Part of the problem could be that there's nothing new 
under the sun, particularly when all the best ideas have 
been used up H bn! this is a pessimistic view and I am con-* 
vinced i hat there's plenty of life left in the computer 
game, 

>n“ 1 i ke ly reason is that the recession has forced com- 
panies to play safe and thaL the development of the indus= 
try as a whole makes the creation of risky new game 
types more difficult, 

PC games are a good case in point. Ef someone can 
name a ground-breaking PC game - and we're talking 
about ideas rather than graphical advances - then it must 
bn cm I 'vc m issed , 

With PCs ga ining more and more ground in the games 
world, the danger is l fiat big ifitros, lots of Colours, and 
visually attractive games with little or 
no gamvpLay could become the norm - if they haven't 
already. Some PC products are very good, of course - and 
Alone in the Dark 2 springs in irind - but there are w 
many dull rehashes of tired old ideas in the PC world that 
the gems are usually hidden under a mountain of d ross. 

It is so often the case that the screen shots look shin- 


ning but the game, when played, is unutterably drab, so 
that players must surely become dMlIiisioned with them. 

Nci amount of skimming across a 25b -col our fully 
shaded landscape can make up for the fact I hat the Latest 
flight siro, though nice to look at, is no more challenging or 
complex in gameplay terms than FIS Interceptor, one nf 
the first flight released on the Amiga, 

For £40, i could pop down I he local Starving Artists 
gallery and snap up a visual treat on canvas whose appeal 
would last a kit longer than the sinking feeling I'd get 
when realising that SuperLabido Steal thChopper VI was 
nothing more than a US-vear-nkl helicopter game with 
improved graphics. The fact that many more gamers don't 
is one of the great consumer mysteries. 

LARGE COMPANIES 

A second factor which may stifle creativity is the 
encroachment of large international firms. Huge Japanese 
and American companies, a time ted by the CD-ROM boom 
and the possibility of combining the music, film, and 
games industries into one huge leisure market, are jump- 
ing in with both feet, and if Hollywood is the middle 
ground of movie making, these guys wilt certainly be the 
same in our industry. 

big money means big games with lots of graphic artists 
working on them, musicians, programmers, and marketing 
beds, and they all have to be paid. 

The result is that as development costs for games begin 
to StW there will be a strong tendency to play safe rather 


than wing it with a new game concept 

Com panics will r ol course, launch a now game no mat- 
ter what idea it is based on if they think it will make 
money,, but grey-faced, grey -suited marketing executives 
don't make the same value judgements as the T-shirlcd 
brigades who run many of todays smaller games houses. 

While someone at, say, Bui I frog might think that a Cod 
game would be a good idea, Mr Suit might not, and pre- 
fer to allocate his development budget to Ninja Vixens % 
Pessimism, though, should only be allowed to go so 
tar. We might 5ee the industry shaping up In a way that 
makes it difficult for small independent software house* 
to Compete, but that doesn't mean we won't see good 
games. 

Electronic Arts, to take an example, have oflen been 
the medium by which small groups nf coders or new 
companies have reached the public. Populous, which was 
developed by the then fledgling Bullfrog, was taken on 
board by EA despite the fact that it was like nothing 
they'd ever seer, and it sold in bucket-loads. 

if this process carries cm, with the targe companies 
sucking in the best of the back bedroom coders' ideas and 
marketing them, then all is not lost 

If, on the other hand,, games houses continue to be fas- 
cinated by huge 3D intro animations and oodles of graph- 
ics to the exclusion of gamepJay, we might as well all lake 
up needlepoint, because there will be nothing 
to get those glands ghing in the computer games market.

Q uarterback Tools is a program 
which corrects af] kinds of prob- 
lems on hard and floppy disks. If 
you have ever seen this message (and who 
hasn't); 

Eirflf k'jHdaling c i 5 k 13 unrta dibit 
or: 

VdLuic itorkbiriih tas a ttidfurita error 

then you need Quarterback Tools! 

If you've used your Amiga for any 
length of time, you will have already 
Faced the problems that can occur ^vith 
floppy and hard disks. Quarterback Teds 
solves disk and file problems caused by 
unpleasant visits from the guru, unex- 
pected power failures, accidental file dele- 
tion^ disk formatting mistakes, 
mechanical problems, ageing and physical 
disk damage, 

Theru are really only three steps to run- 
ning Quarterback fools: Start the pro- 
gram, select a disk drive (volume) to

selected a validated volume you will be 
able to display volume statistics., go to the 
Volume Reorganisation menu, restore 
deleted /lost files and drawers, format the

Otherwise you'll be presented with the 
Bad Volume menu which lets you display 
volume statistics, attempt to repair bad 
volumes, restore files to a different vol- 
ume or seieci a different drive. 

If your disk is so badly corrupted that 
Ihe Amiga crashes every time you insert 
the floppy, you can direct Quarterback 
Tools to di sable Amiga DOS by selecting 
the appropriate option from the menu bar, 

It may then be possible to repair the 
entire disk or to restore some of its files to 
another volume. The worst case scenario 
is that no data can be recovered in which 
ease the disk can still be used once it has 
been formatted, 

Anyone who has owned their Amiga 
for some time will probably have noticed 
that it takes longer and longer for tiles to 
he loaded from or written to disk. ITiis is 
true whether you use a hard or floppy 
drive and will become worse as the disk 
becomes full. 

I he problem of decreased performance 
is caused by file fragmentation. Files are 


broken up into many pieces and stored in 
different places on the disk. 

Amiga DOS keeps track of this and puts 
alt the pieces back together when you loud 
a file. This technique allows the Amiga to 
use every bit of a disk but has an unfortu- 
nate side effect on access times, 

Usually this is not loo much of a prob- 


lem, but when a disk starts to fill up, files 
may be split into more fragments in order 
tea fit them on the disk. Because they are 
more widely scattered, access times can 
become tediously slow, 

M 

Quarterback Tools solves fragmenta- 
tion problems in two ways. First, it col- 
lects all the fragments of each file together 
into a single contiguous area of the disk. 
Nestl, it rearranges the files on the disk so 
that there an? no holes in the disk space 
Gne way to visualise this step is to 
imagine that the files are all pushed to one 
end ol the disk leaving the empty space at 
the other end. That way, when new files

back up your disk before 1 using 
Oii^irtorback Tools. 

An equally useful function is the ability 
of this program to restore deleted files. 
When files are deleted they are mil com* 
pleteiy erased. For each file there is an 
entry in a special table which tells the 
Amiga where the file U actually loaded. 

All that happens when a file is deleted 
is that the table entry is removed, The file 
itself still exists but the system no longer 
cares about it and is free to allocate the 
space that it occupies for other files.

Harmoni 

Author: The Disc Company 
Requires: Midi equipment and interface 


if you have access to Midi hardware and a suilable Interface, Barmpni could well become 
an Invaluable lod for any Midi musician - especially lor those of you who've spans your 
formative years learning how to write and record at ihe oonlrols o! the Amiga’s countless 
soundtracker clones. 

Once safely extracted and installed on a separate Floppy. Harmony should boot, 
revealing a rather complex and somewhat daunting interlace. However don t be pul off by 
Ihe program's harsh screen layoul. 

Although la r from pretty. Harmoni is m fact a very Iriendly package thal's simple lo use 
and can often out-gun many full price commercial packages when it comes to pure 
sequencing power. 

On initial boot-up you'll be taken direcHy into sequence mode. As the name suggests, 
ifs from bare whom the basic building blocks of any composition start out 

Unlike most sequencers, Harmpni doesn'l employ a linear approach to song construc- 
tion. In fad, each track is divided into as many or as few sections or individual sequences 
as your song requires. 

For example, to create e track within a song which wen! verse,, chorus, verse, chorus 
you'd only need two separate sequences whieb could then be appended in the correct 
order wilhin ihe program's song mode - thereby generating Ihe illusion ol a linear pro- 
gression with each section Following on seamlessly through the entire song. 

Although a little conlusing at first, the basic principle is very simple: You simply decide 
how many sections your song will require, record each unique section in a separate 
sequence and then string them together in song mode. 

When you first load the program, the sequence ielfer in Ihe top right-hand comer of the 
screen will be A and should be Untitled, Change this tg Intro. 

If you use the anew gadgets either side of the letter you can scroll through the 52 
sequences available lor each song If you now move the mouse pointer tg the very top ol 
the screen and press ihe right mouse button the various pull-down menus will be 
revealed. 

Along the right-hand side you'll find all the major track editing commands while the bot- 
tom provides access to the assorted recording options, time signature, metronome and 
environmental controls. 

Assuming you've already connected a suitable interface and inslrument - and checked 
all connections thoroughly - we can embark on a whistle stop lour of the recording 
process,. 

First click on ihe Midi Thru button - a pinky orange background should become active. 
Now move lo ihe numerical gadget alongside the button, press down and hold the left 
mouse button, moving up and down to adjust "the Midi channel selection. Qnge ihe chan- 
nel is defined, simply select the instrument vote# or preset of your choice and play a few 


notes. At this point you should hear your chosen voice - if nol, check alF connections and 
ensure you ve followed the set up procedure properly. 

It all is well, click on track 1 in the main window, Now move to the bottom of the screen 
and dick on the Count In button with the Hell mouse button - again this should change 
colour. 

Dace active. Count In will provide a lour-bar intro prior lo recording. IF Ihis isn't enough 
dick on the nght mouse button and a requester will appear allowing you to adjust the 
number of bars to your taste. 

In fact, many of Hamioni's buttons will produce a set-up requester when clicked 
on by the rig hi mouse button. A period example is the Meiro button which when 
clicked upon by the right button reveals a special requestor that allows a Midi 
channel and instrument to be assigned as a replacement for Ihe program's internet 
metronome. 

In addition you can also adjust Ihe melrpnome interval, and of course the tempo can 
also be deFmed via a small slider alongside She Metro button on the main sequencer 
screen. 

Assuming you're adjusted bolh the count in and metronome according - bolh of which 
should now be highlighted - it's time to reconp. First, simply practice a short melody and 
then when you're ready click on run - or press the spacebar. 

AS this point the recording process will begin, so simply wait fgr the count-in to end arvd 
play your melody When you'va finished press the spacebar or hit the Run button once 
more. 

Now the Keep button will be highlighted in red, 11 you wish to re-record, simply rewind

standard in all respects, To um? RDPrep on 
a non- Mic robotics inter face r simply 
change the tool type in the icon to indicate 
the name of the device driver you are 
u^ing. For example, the Commodore 
device driver name is scsi.device, 

Note that RDPrep is not a formatting 
utility. By deliberate design, MicroBotics 
have separated both low and high-level 
formatting from the creation of RPBb. It is 
their feeling that the possibility of making 
a catastrophic mistake is unacceptably 
increased by blending these different func- 
tions into one program, 

RDprep starts up in its least complex 
mode, called Standard mode. Most instal- 
lations can be made from this mode which 
requires less data entry on your part. If 


you have a peculiar drive or setup 
requirement, you can go to Complex 
mode by clicking on the Complex butlon 
in the upper right-hand corner of Screen 1 H 
but we recommend that, you don't use it. 

Screen 1 starts up in Standard mode 
and shows the drives that are connected to 
your disk interface, ft yon have more than 
one drive connected, RDPrep will start by 
showing you the default settings for the 
first drive in the list To show the defaults 
of any other drives you might have con- 
nected, just click on that drives line in the 
list, 

Once the values on screens 1 and 2 
have been set up along with the partitions 
you worth return to screen 1 and save the 
disk information as a MOUNTFILE This 
is a standard te*.t hie which describes the 
settings you've created in RDPrep for a 
given disk unit. The purpose of a mount- 
fi le i.s tn back up your disk settings so that 
you can easily restore them if an error 


occurs. A mount file cjn be saved (as a 
named fill 1 ) on floppy disk then later 
recalled and written to the 
RigtdDiskBlocks of the disk. It is impor- 
tant that vou take the time to create a 

j 

mountfile. Having created the settings and 
partitions for el disk in RDPrep, the final 
step Is. to write the RUB to the drive. 

A Drivel nit is a piece of program code 
tluit is cinbeddixi in the Rigid Disk Block 
and which loads and runs automatically 
each time a drive is booted. For example, a 
Drivelml could he a patch to the driver 
code on your interface. 

A Dfivdnit is made available for selec- 
tion. by clicking the Set Drivel nit button 
and selecting the file name from the 
requester box. The chosen file name will 
then he added to the list of available ones. 

Be sure that you establish at least one 
partition on your drive, and write its 
information to the Rigid Disk Block by 
selecting the WRITE RDB button on 



printer 

drivers 


Getting the most out of a primer 
requires installation of the right 
driver. You can get by wMh a substi- 
tute but obviously Jt won t be as 
good if it wasn’t created with your 
particular model In mind. 

As Hewlett Packard printers don't 
Lend to come with a suitable driver 
for the Amiga we have put a selec- 
tion on the Quarterback Tools disk. 


Screen 1 of KDRrep. Every drive must 
have at Jeant one partition in order to be 
recognised by the system. If you fail to do 
this, you will get an error message "Drive 
Not bound" when you reboot to do a soM 
format. 

After creating a valid RDB you must 
reboot your Amaga using an already 
bootable hard disk partition (not the one 
you just worked on) or a bonuibk disk. 

You must do this to mount the parti- 
tions vou ju£t created with RDF rep in 
order to do a high level (soft} Amiga DOS 
format of the disk. Click on the Shell icon 
and issue a format command to the drive 
of the form: 

FORMAT CRlYE <Gn i l« Nafte> HME

Tliis command will soft format a partition 
for the Fast FHe System. A typical format 
command would look like:

lighted in the main window will update with the newly-stored Midi data. 

You can now move along This new Track adding a name or perhaps changing the chan- 
nel, ediling she si art and end; times, transposing or even muting the track when 
necessary. 

To hear your creation again simply rewind using the arrow gadgets and click on Run 
once more - you should now hear your recording playback just like the original. 

If you now dick or> an empty track you can repeat the process, bul first select 
a different channel tor Ihe new track by repeating the Midi Thru procedure described 
above. 

IF you then select a different voice nn your Instrument we can perhaps add a lead 
instrument to the intro sequence, but first rewind the sequencer and play along with the 
existing track unlil you're comfortable. 

When rehearsals are over rewind once again, but this time after playing along click on 
the Keep button to store the new track permanently. Now rewind and listen to both tracks 
playing in concert. 

At this point it's probably wise lo save your creation by moving to the Sop of

Wl>en we put Caligari on ll>e October CoverDisk we could fiol find a way to make il run

It seems that pan of ihe problem lies in the loot that Caligan needs half a megabyte

models because they have at least 1 Mb of chip RAM, 

The two types of memory are physically the same and the distinction is made 
because the custom chips are only allowed to access part ol the total memory which 
has become known as chip RAM, 

FakeMem is a neat little utility which makes use of this fact and redefines Ihe area

COVERDISKI 


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


New readers may have difficulties 
using our CoverDisk, so we have 
included this page to help you out. 

Below we explain how to copy 
files from one disk to another, how 
to copy the entire CoverDisk and 
how to de-archive programs. None 


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



How to make a backup 


To copy jhe entire CoverDisk, I oad up your 
Workbench disk, then either click once on the 
CoverDisk icon and select Duplicate, or select Copy 
from the Workbench menu, or open C LI /Shell and 

type: 

Brtrcopr m* m: to dfc: 

When prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source 
disk) in dfO; and be ready to replace it with your 
blank disk (the destination disk), Follow the Amiga's 
onscreen prompts until the disk copy is completed, 
Now put the original away in a safe place and use 
your bac kup. 



Copying individual files 


You might dt some point want to copy a single program 
ham a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or 
even your hard drive, 

T 0 do this you'll need the COPY command. As most 
CoverDisk programs are stashed away in their own direc- 
tories, the qui-ckest way to copy a program is to copy the 
whole directory at once, Use the command: 

COPT tdifettnrjd TO Enehdilld ALl 

where jdirectory|i is the full pathname of the directory 
you wish to copy, and mewdisk) is the name of the disk 
and directory into which it will be copied. 

For example, if you wanted to copy a utility called 
FRED from CoverDisk 2Ts Utilities drawer to a di rector v 
called 1 FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: 

Wt {tHEtbtSUTMlIILlTIII/FHEI TO VlKBUCHl.HFILEl ILL 

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

Once you have moved a particular program ta where 
you require it you coukJ experience some problems fun- 
ring the program. This is sometimes caused by the pro- 
gfam not being a hie to find files, which rt needs to run,- 

A good example is the text files on the CoverDisk. 
These have been crunched using PowerPacker, so when 
you try to copy them to another disk and then tty to read 
them you can't unless you have also copied the 
Powerpacker library into your UBS drawer.

So if you have copied a program from the CoverDisk 
lo your Work disk or hard drive make sun? you abo copy 
any other files the program requires, te fonts, libraries 
device drivers and Ccommands, 

f ■ I 



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 ps much smaller^ giving 
us space to fit more programs onto the disk. 

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

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

Your computer will then copy the archived file into 
its memory and ask you to insert your blank disk. It will 
proceed to format the disk, and will then de-crunch 
the archrved 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 1 or upward 
machine you must hoot 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 3 then you may have to 
copy the program to your hard drive df 
Workbench disk using tFie process described 
earlier on this page.

With increasingly more powerful layout and 
illustration packages, the Amiga can now rightly 
challenge the Apple Macintosh in the field of 
publishing. Ben Pointer investigates the new 
generation of cheap and powerful publishing set-ups 


T here is nothing that cannot 
be published using Amigas. 
Even lhis magazine could 
be published using Amigas, 
We use Macs, not because they are 
belter but because the publishing 
industry has adopted Macs as Its 
standard. 

Macs were there first, and Pplac 
publishing software is currently 
more powerful than Amiga publish- 
ing software because ft has had

The 

Publisher 

First launched Iasi year 
bv Saxon Industries at 
£250 under the name 
4 Saxon Publisher, The 
L Publisher is now in 

The D isc Company 
stable and is essen- 
tially a slightly cut 
down version of that 
program as a very cut 
down price. 

Saxon Publisher 
never really caught on; il 
lacked a number of basic 
desktop publishing require- 
ments, and The Publisher suffers 
from exactly the same problems. 

Contrary to l he ""publishing made 
easy* claims on the packaging, the user 
interface is confusing and difficult to ge! 
used to, especially for beginner* to pub- 
lishing, at whom the package is aimed. 

All text must be tagged, a system 
whereby every different style of test you 

S!F ® 

use in your document must be 
completely described, from 
point size to texture, 
before you can type a 
single letter. While 
sryle tags have an 
important role to play in professional 
desktop publishing, burdening the begin- 
ner with such a technical concept is not 
sensible. 

Beginners want to load-ind-go, any- 
thing more scares them away. And 
it you buy The Publisher and 
decide that desktop pub- 
lishing is no I for you, it 
would be a shame 
because no other 
publishing software 
is as complicated a L 
this. 

The Publisher has a number of power 
Eli I features that even Professional Page 








DTP ■ 




imore Lime to develop, because St costs 
more, and because Ihere are more pro- 
fessionals using it, 8ut s if I hey wanted 
io they could do it on Amigas, 

Two of the Amiga publishing pack- 
ages, Professional Page and 
Page$tream, are very powerful sys- 
tems, Both require lots of memory 
3Mb or more) and a last hard drive if 
they are to put to proper use. 

Using these publishers on a system 
crippled by low memory and floppy 


drives would be unproductive. That's 
why a third package. PageSetler 3 r 
was developed, for people wanted to 
dip l heir toes into the publishing pond 
without having to spend a fortune. But 
even PageSefter 3 can produce 
leaflets, magazines, newsletters* 
adverts, you name it. and in fuiJ colour, 
Bui all publishing software, even 
the budget titles, are notoriously hun- 
gry for memory. The fact that they cost 
loss doesn't mean they use Jess mem- 


ory, It just means they can’t do as 
much as the more expensive software, 
Memory is a publishing program s life 
blood - without memory it will die. 

A comfortable minimum is 6Mth an 
absolute minimum, despite what it may 
say on the box, is 4 Mb. So when con- 
sidering what pubJisher is best lor you 
and how much you can afford, keep In 
mind that the price of more memory 
may have Iq be added to the total

TypeSmith 


TypofacQs are to a desklop publisher wfiat 
money is lo normal people They can't hv& 
without typefaces, and the more they have. 
I he more options will be open to them. 

There £re plenty of PD and commercial 
typefaces avajlabte in both Compugraphic 
and PostScripl Typo 1 format, but tor that 
ealra $pac*a! job there's nettling better than 
an original typeface,, one that no one has 
ever se^n before. For that you need a type* 
lace design package, and that's whet 
TypeSmith is. 

Alas, most people are using TypeSmith 
tor nothing more then converting typefaces 
between Compugraphic and PostScripl for- 
mat, which is a bit of a shame because if is a 
very good typeface designer* Of course 
typefaces need lo be designed on paper 
reaJJy, then transferred to the computer 
either by hand or by scanning and auto- 
tracing., 

Auto-tracing is one ol those inexact sch 
ances, and no matter how powerful Ihe soft- 
ware or hardware you use, at the end of the 
day you are going to have to gel ie then? and 
clean up the characters. 

There is no software, no! even on the 
Mac, that can auto-trace a bitmap and pro- 
vide you with a boautifuily dean outline, 
wobbly lines and loo many points around 
curves is what you always gel. 

So designing typefaces es not easy, bul 
TypeSmith makes it as easy a 9 is possible 
at this price. 

TypeSmith produces typefaces that can 
be used in PageStream, Professional Page. 
PageSetler 3, The Publisher, Professional 
Draw, Art Expression and any other pro- 
gram Ihaf uses either PostScript Type t or 
Compugraphic typefaces. 

Altering existing typefaces is probably the 
best way to gel slartsd, and TypeSmith pro- 
vides you with simple Jo operate tools for 
scaling, slanting, relating, and adding and 
removing points and fines. Version 2 ol 
TypeSmfth is imminenf, which will provide 
even more power. No Amiga desktop pub- 
lisher is fully dressed wilhout it,

DTP 


Professional Draw 


A publishing program alone iB not enough ter mm a beginner to 
DTP yon also nnnd an illustration package,, Professional Draw is 
the perfect oompaninn to Professional Page. 

Like the arbcte and graphics editor that come with Professional 
Page, Professional Draw Is hoUinfced to she publishing package, 
enabling you to pass structured graphics between the two pro- 
grams al a single keystroke. Because Professional Draw looks end 
feels so much like Professional Page, you sometimes lorget lhal 
you are using two programs 

Designing structured drawings, like designing typefaces, is a 
skill that must be learned. It is nowhere near as easy as painting in 
something like DeluxePainL but the benefits of drawings being 
rescale, which means they always print at any size with smooth 
curves and diagonals, makes il a skill well worth learning 

From a career point ol view, gond graphics artists are lew and 
far between, and are consequently among the higher paid workers 
in the publishing trade We writer get peanuts ki comparison. 

Uke Professional Page. Professional Draw has a small number 
of bugs in it that cause professional and hobbyist users alike to tear 
their hair out, 

Even so, i! you are using Professional Page it would be better to 


buy Professional Draw Shan another illustration package because of 
the hollmk capability, which is so convenient. 

Apart Irom the ageing Aegis Draw format, Professional 
Draw supports only its own structured drawing format, But 
because Profession^ Page tan import many other struc- 
tured drawing formals, including Adobe Illustrator, and 
because these can be sent to Professional Draw via the 
hollink* it is possible in a roundabout way to import and 
save alien Formats into and from Professional Draw, 

In its way, Professional Draw Is every bit as good as the 
si a I towed Adobe 
Illustrator (which isn't 
available lor the 
Amiga), and there are 
even a few things 
Professional Draw can 
do that Adobe 
illustrator can’t. As i 
said, if you've got 
Professional Page, gat 
Professional Draw too,

There an? many people who will tell you 
that FageStreflm is better than iWes-sinnal 
Pa^e H professionals among them, But it^ 
current; knock-down price and ihc fact that 
Soft-Logik are doing a complete re-write of 
the program tor v3 suggests that it istv't as 
good as thin*e people think it is, 

PagcSlream has more built-in features 
than any other Amiga publishing program, 
,-ind this is why people say if is better. But 
from a professional point of view, many of 
the more powerful features arc either 
mat quite powerful enough, or don't work 
properly- 

Onff of PageStreams strong suits is its 
typeface support, it is the only Amiga pub- 
lishing program that directly supports 
PnstSrnpt Type 1 typefaces without forcing 
you fco put hies through a conversion utility. 

PageStredm also supports 
Compugraphic typefaces aiui Soft-Logik's 
own outline typeface format. Typeface sup- 
port alone makes PageStnam a must-have 
for any Amiga desktop publisher, Version 3 
of Page Stream will ffaunt even better type- 
face support. 

Odour support in PagcStream is pour It 
doesn't yet support the AGA chip set (v 3 
will), so lh colours on-screen is the best you 
can do, It runs quite slowly in lh-colour 
mode, and most Pagi-Slream users I know

ning much, much faster, it crashes less in 
two-colour. 

It handles bitmaps quite poorly. 
Allhough there is support for bitmaps up to 
24-bib PageStresun insists on Loading every 
bitmap entirely into memory. Load the 
same bitmap twice and l^igeStream will 
have two copies of it in memory. 

So rageSlrvam consumes a lot of mem- 
ory when working with bitmaps, a ltd even 
bk'fh of memory is not always enough to 
escape the dreaded "not enough memory" 
rrquLStf-r when working with 24-bit files. 

Costing £70 or tese, though it Is difficult 
to criticise Page Stream, Et me,i ns the protes- 
sionaL user can buy both of the professional 
packages at a combined cost of less than 
£2CKh and white they are not compatible 
with one another, it does mean you can use 


whjdiever of them does the job in hand 
best. And for new comers to DTP, 
PagcStmam is definitely & lot easier to gel to 
grips w yih than Profess icn at Page. 


9 PageSetter 3 


Essentially a cut-down version of Ehofessdonal 
Page, PageSetter 3 is the perfect choice for any- 
one who wanks to get into desktop publishing 
but can't afford ils mure powerful big bmthet 
or doesn't want the immediate headache or 
learning a professional system. 

PageSetter 3 supports the AC A chipsei 
enabling you to view your docunumb in 2y- 
colours if you like, and it comes with te*t and 
gr.;ipliic^. editors that are "hull inked" to th- 
main publishing program. 

Tlik means, provided you haw eno ugh 
memory, you can send text and graphic h.i ■ 
and forth between the various editors wither' 
having to worry about saving and import io. 
files. 

Hot] inking from floppy is pmsibk 3 ,. but a b r 
jwkwand, so a hard, drive is reeommended if 
you plan hi uhi 1 E J agcSetter 3 in this way. An., 
you need at least 4Mb of memory; 2Mb ■ 
which should be graphics memory. 

Like Professional Page, PageSetter 1 sup

providing you with a program that conver.i

Amiga. Sott-Logik haven' I given Art Expression tha look and feel of PageStream. but it 
hut yet hotlinked to PageStream. There are plans to build this facility into a later ver* 
s»on of Art Expression in order for it to work with the next version ol PageStream. 

Now, while it is dangerous lo base opinions on soilware lhat doesn't exist, I can'i 
s:op mysoff wasaring al the mouth over the prospect pi Arl Expression combi ned with 
PageStream 3 On paper this combination would appear to beat the pants of any other 
publishing system on any other computer, 

Even the mighty Macintosh publisher. Quark X press (used to publish ihrs magazine) 
looks weak when compared to Ihe combined Art Expression and PageStream 3 fea- 
tures list. 

For this reason. If you are planning io get into professions publishing with your 
Amiga I must advise you to strongly consider buying Art Expression and PageStream 
now, even though the current versions combined are not quite as powerful as ihe 
p rofessional Page/Draw combination. SoH-Logik are providing low-cosi upgrade palhs 
that are available even to Professional Page users. 

I hale making statements like this m 

because they often sound soppy, but l really ^ 

do believe that if SoU-Logik gels 
PageStream 3 nghl - it it is fasi enough and 
stable enough I mean - il could propel the 
.Amiga 4000 into the professional publrshing 
market and make those sanctimonious Mac 
users in ihe DTP bureaux who lalk down to 
Amiga users eat their words.

DTP 


Professional Page 


Until the release of v4 s Professional 
Page was king of ihe Amiga DTP pack- 
ages. Then Gold Disk did something 
siupid» They released a half-baked 
upgrade that had more bugs in it than a 
rotting cwpse. II took another couple of 
rnonlhs to get a 4.1 bug-fixing version 
written and released Now the corpse 
has more bugs lhan Prolf ^sional Page 
does, but only in a photo finish. 

Bugs apart (you can always work 
around them) Professional Page is a 
powerful publishing package., a fact 
clearly demonstrated by it requiring a 
hard drive rather than merely recom^

mending one Lots ol memory arw a tasl Amiga is also a requirement unless you want to 
crash a to! or spend all oay laying out a couple of pages. 

This is nd a criticism of Professional Page, I just want to rake it clear lhal to use profes- 
sional software productively you require a professional setup. Putting fat lyres on a car 
won't make H go faster, only a better engine will do lhal. 

Professional Page's b-ggost assets are ils formatting genies, which ana essentially inter- 
aciiva ARexx senpts More than 50 are provided, and these extend the proymnff capabili- 
hes by enabling complex operations mat would normally take several menu items, mouse 
clicks and key presses to be performed tn just one or iwo mouse dicks Or key presses 
Leam how to write AFtexx senpts and you can build your own personal features into 
Professional Page. There are a tew dozen powerful genies on PD disks, some of which are 
so good that Gokl Disk has now inciLded them with Professional Page, 

Speed is important whero designing pages, and Professional Page is no slouch. Screen 
refresh is the fastest ot any Amiga pubi sner. Graphics are imported quic kly, even large £4- 
bil ones. In Uack-end- white mode Ptofessicml Page fairly whizzes along. 

Working in two colours doesn t prevent you from pnnting in more colours, ot course, and 
you can always flip quickly into colour mode (IB or 256) if you feel ihe need to see what 
your pages look i ike in colour 

Many Professional pi age users waste hours by instsling in working in 256-oo!our mode. 
White Itiis looks pretty, everything happens much more slowly. 

Professional Page 15 the only Amiga publishing package lhal supports facing page lay- 
outs where both left and; right naps can 
be worked on at the same time So you 
have complete freedom io run anything 
rrght across the gutter of the spread, and 
at print time the left and right pages get 

outpul separately, to dot matrix or 

PostScript. ■ jfff 

Despite the bugs, at the moment 
Professional Page is probably still ihe top 
Amiga publishing package. But when 
Page Sir earn 3 is released (due in 
Nowemb^r), it looks likely to lose its throne

A « mtrlmy at flint marble, uncuith p*nfc f (VfflJ r^i^of (OfllpIKf att rtbitifi 


G iven lime and a methodical bent, 
most modellers can producr 
large, complex, and often very 
. ... rate models of everything from the 
- : liip Enterprise, a tediously common 
lor devotod ray tracers, to a pip- 
.7 ru&ster. 

Complete control over the 3D envirun- 
nt and today s powerful, flexible mod- 
ng packages means that a host of 
* fiJ designed, cleverly constructed objects 
£'--t available in FD and on bulletin 
boards. 

However, no matter how clever or 
ntive the modeller, finished results 
pend on what the user can see rather 
than the mathematical accuracy of, say, a 
. *22 Cadillac., and this is where 
- rushmaps and textures come in. 

Surreal 

! he addition of even a common or gar- 
ZiTi hump map call give a medkKTe object 
j special something, hut add a couple of 
more surreal textures and a dreary lib 
spaceship can be made to jump out of 
screen at you. 

Essence Volume IE is the second batch 
s mathematical textures from Apex 
- >it ware designed solely for use with 
-ogine 2 , 0 / 3.0, and the two disk set 
"< ds 44 new ways to brighten up those 
■ r ed old scenes. Unlike the first volume, 


though, this one is designed for some very 
specific uses. 

Essence Volume E was a collection of 
fractal noise anti turbulence, altitude, gen- 
era I utility, and a few m Lscel Ian eo u s te x- 
lures which gave Imagine users a huge 
boost in the rendering stakes. 

Volume II improves on this by offering 
more textures, targeting them more 
Specifically, and supplying a huge number 
of pre-def lived attributes files which the 
user can assign to an object to save the 
bother of setting a Large number of vari- 
ables. The only let down with Essence I 


was that the textures, being mathematical 
by nature, were complicated beasts and 
required a deal of faffing around with 
hi 4 ■ m i vi g | y rnrdnm n u mbe rs to crea te 
effects other than the default. 

An easy to digest manual made life a 
little easier, as it does wjth Essence II., hut 
in the main the user was expected to 
experiment, 

This time-consuming, if ultimately 
rewarding, task is still the mainstay of 
Essence II, but a staggering 15b pre- 
defined attribute files make life immeasur- 
ahk easier. Simply select an object press 


GRAPHICS! 

F7, and load the attribute list of 
your choice from a se Sec I ion which 
includes everything from lea fen liras * to 
Pink Vomit and Allen rhocritatc 

Apart fronii the sometimes unhelpfully 
bizarre names given these attributes, tiwre 
is n lot to he sHfiid for NUrh an easy short- 
cut. For example, a satellite's fifilnr 
panels die the ideal object tor the hull 
plate texture, but it would take a lot of 
p rev ie vv rend e rs. t o attain K he results 
Achievable by fust loading the Cool Plate 
attribute, 

Steve Worley and his coding crew must 
have been inundated with requests 
for space textures if the profusion 
of useful textures designed with space- 
ships and planets in mind is anything to 
goby. 

Well -designed 

In particular, the Hull Plate, Machinery, 
and Gas Plane! textures are quick and 
easy to apply, and the results can be seen 
in ihe batiks tar Calactica image shown 
here. 

Starting with a well-designed PD nhpT 
whose creator had no choice but to use the 
old Camo and Checks textures to simulate 
surface detail, il woa an easy matter to 
Slap the Essence II Machinery texture on

texture from Essence E 
and it was a disappoint- 
ment not to see some sort 
of easy load-and-go 
flame texture or attribute 
list 

In tact, this and a 
Standard space engine 
gas flume feature are just 
about the only omissions 
from Essence 11. They're 
inclusion would have 
been a bonus for space 

funs, but the rest of us 

will be especially 
delighted with the new organic and water 
textures. 

Three types e L ich of Crush Fleck, and 
Vein can be used in conjunction with the 
bumpy Things (altitude to you and me) 
textures to create incredible - and often 
tola! I v weird - results. 

J 

For example, the marble arch in our

results which 
would be impossible 
any other way A 

temple image relies on a single organic tex- 
ture, t‘rust3, to produce the complex pat- 
terns of colour and depth which relieve a 
fairly simple object of its plain appearance. 

Ore major drawback with mathematical 
textures is that some of them have a dra- 
matic effect on rendering times, slowing 
Imagine down to a crawl on even an 

A 4000/040- 

This is an inevitable trade-off for the 
sort of quality results Essence 1 1 can pro- 
ducer but users should be wary of some 
p re-defined attributes as several of them 
use two, three, or even four textures at 
once to produce their effects. 

Others, such as the Gas Planet and 
Cyclone textures, an,; slow by nature of the 
calculations they force Ihe computer to

carry out, but this is partly offset by Iht 
surprising speed with which some of the 
altitude maps render. Many of these, Such 
as Flagstone and Crumpled, seem to have 
almost no effect on rendering speeds. 

En all, Essence 9E is an essential buy for 
anv Imagine 2.0 user who has always 
yearned to create the ported crazy- pithed 
garden path or a spaceship of Star Wars 
realism on his or her Amiga. 

Its combination of flexible textures and 
easy attributes lists nuke it a big improve- 
ment over Essence I, ami as ti is capable oJ

other way it is bound to he a 
huge hit.

ul hi hin^; agjfy a flicker fixer on 
it* own would hav<? cost GSl or 
muro, Ami |h*» cheapest 24-bil 
card would have bL^n around £500 - a 
costly combination which mm red dial only 
the professional or rich and very enthusias- 
tic Amiga u*er reached this plateau of dis- 
play excellence 

These days,, however, the price of Up 
market boards is tumbling, and Village 
Tronic's Picasso is I he latest low coal add- 
on, offering 24-bit and a deinterlacer tor a 
penny leys than GOG, 

The board is designed to utilise retar- 
getable graphics (RTG) so that Workbench 
and many other Workbench-friendly pro- 
grams run on thu 24-bit high resolution dis- 
play rather than the usual Amiga screen 
mode*. By intercepting the Amiga's display 
database during buOt-up r Picasen inserts 
itself in the system and tries to go as unno- 
ticed as possible, 

Picasso is a Zorno-based card which will 
fit in any spare Zorro U or til slot, leaving 
the video slot free, Slightly larger than its 
direct competition, the Retina card from 
Miakm System, Picasso consists in thn main 

j 

of a bank of fast 45ns VRAM chips and the 
flicker fixer circuitry.. 

a 

These VRAM chips ensure that Picasso is 
capable of fast screen refreshes and that 
many programs, particularly screen-inten- 
sive utilities such as DTP and CAD, rim 
smoother and quicker than on a standard 
Amiga display, With a solid flicker fixer 
display into the bargain, Plcas$o makes for 


a pleasing work environment. 

The near end of the card h ports two 15- 
pin RGB connectors, one which feeds sig- 
nals in from the Amiga, the other passing 
Amiga and Picasso video signaled the 
monitor, Once installed, which is a simple 
matter of slotting the card In a vacant slot, 
the user can route the Amiga's RGB output 
to Picasso using the lead supplied with the 
IxkifiJ, then plug a VGA or multisync moni- 
tor to the other 15-pin connector. 

As a result of this setup and the two RGB 
ports, Picasso can be used eLther as the 
main display device or as a pass-through 
for Amiga signals, thus negating the need 
for two monitors ora switcher box, 

PASS-THROUGH 

In addition, the board defaulLs to acting 
ok a pass-through unfil IPrets or the user 
selects a Picasso screen mnde r which means 
games and other self-booting disks will can- 
tinue to work as normal 

LiSing the Retina card is more hassle in 
this respE-ct, as si has only one input and 
w r il! not display any picture whatsoever 
until Ihe Retina Emu program kicks in 
through the WBSlflrtup drawer. 

As Retina, will not display 15.5kHz PAL 
signals, the user is forced to switch from 
Retina to Amiga displays when using such 
software, and this involves physically mov- 
ing the monitor lead or using a switch box, 
Picasso's advantages in this area are 
obvious, though how important they would 
be to the user with a single application in

Poor painting 


mind (DTP or CAD, for example) remains 
to he seen Such users would be unlikely to 
wan 1 to s w i tell be t wee n D y n aC A D and 
Zoo]., so although the home user will find 
Picasso a Sol Jess hassle than Retina, the leal 
lest comes in long term use with the sort of 
software which would benefit from Picasso 
displays. 

At first sight, Picasso is a rather binlpte- 
tic board with I i tile in the way of configura- 
tion software, I lowever, it isn't long before 
one discovers ih is impression is created 
only by virtue of the board's extreme 
smoothness of operation. Several Picasso 
programs do in fact control the way the 
board works, but because the piug^and-go 
installation requires almost no tweaking to 
begin with, the fimt time user can be for- 
given for thinking that nothing ts going on. 

When the installer is run, Picasso pro- 
grams are sent to three different locations 
on hard disk, hirst, the Village.! ibrary is 
copied to the SysiExpansion drawer, and 
two important fifes are copied to 
WBStariup 1 iiese are ChangeScreen and 


the Picasso monitor driver^ accompanied by 
the less vital Styxblank 24-bit screen 
blanker. When these programs are ini- 
tialised during startup, I 1 re-assn screen 
modes becomes available through the stan- 
dard Workbench Screen Modes profs pro- 
gram, and thu ChargeSt rivn program htarb 
to monitor every newly launched program. 

II, say, Lhe u^r tnes to load IVg^tler 5 
for the f i r-.» time since installing Picasso, 
GiangeScreen will pup lip on Workbench 
ami offer a choice of whether Or nut to 
change screen mode to a high resolution 
Pfcaseo display, and whether this should be 
done permaix'iitly or newer. 

If the user wants to swap modes, a list of 
possibk resolutions appears and a simple 
mouse click effects the change, which is 
saved in a prefs file so lh.it the question 
need never be answered again. 

Pressing a hot key combination pops 
ChangeScreen's main window up on 
VVor]dwnch„ offering a number of choices 
for screen resolutions and the way in which 
Picasso displays programs. Every time a 



Like mosl olhui display cards,, Picasso is supplied with 
a bundled paint package so that users can create art- 
work using their new graphics modes. The quality of 
these packages varies from the high of DC TV Paint to 
the exlreme low of the first MacroPaint release. 
Personal Paint Lite, the program found in every 
Pcasso box, hovers an appreciable distance below the 
average mark. 

Guile apart horn anything else, this is the first bun- 
dled paint program IVe seen which is incapable oi ham

dllng its own board's best graphics mode. PPainl Ule is 
a register mode paint package, which means it can han- 
dle no more than 256-KJtour graphics and doesn't have 
any truck wilh 24-bit images. 

For a tot Of artwork, 256 colours is fine, as anyone 
who has seen Jim Sachs's Brilliance examples will 
agree. Unfortunately, the Lila version, which Picasso is 
stock with, seems incapable of utilising more than 64 
colours in higher resol u lions than 320 by 200, so is aboul 
as useful as an erotic dancer at a wedding reception.

WILDCARD 

Selecting the program"* name in the list 
v, typing an Amiga DOS wildcard (the 
. question mark combination.) into the 
■ gadget below will ensure that all 
- “vena opened by the main program use 
rv same screen mode, saving a lot of trou- 
" * wiih ADJ/ro and Sts la. If this is inappro- 
male for one or other erf those Screens, it is 
J simple matter to change them individu- 
ally. 

It is also possible to create a general 
mode protnoimn group by shuffling screen 
across to a central window then 


moted screens. 

Programs which arc coded fadly and go 
straight past il-at- normal Amiga system func- 
lions to directly access chip RAM would 
normally refuse to open on a Picasso screen 
because die board wouldn't be able to inter- 
cept them at system level. As a compromise, 
though, the ChangcScrcen program has a 
Copy Continuously facility. 

If tills l* 1.1 low. *n for a, particular program, 
il will be opened in chip RAM as a back- 
ground screen then copied to Picasso as 
many limes per second as the user requires, 

I laving said that, well over L| ^ percent of the 
packages t r i4-ci on our test board worked 
perfectly. 

Some screen corruption is evident on a 
few, and Drain 1 still has problems, but oth- 
erwise there have been few insurmountable 


Massive monitors 

The moulito watering Picasso screen modos are all well and good, but some very spe- 
cial monitors are needed il many of them are to be usable, hlgns of She higher resolu- 
tions will display on a standard SVGA monitor, and a decenl multisync is the minimum 
display device lor Picasso to be more than a 24-hit I rams butter for static image dis- 
play. 

Far instance, the most popular PC screen mode is 800 * 600, a high resolution dis 
play used by most Windows packages to give a clean, steady signal which is readable 
oo 14in monitors. These monitors can usually scan up to about 38kHz vertical fre* 
quency, and the 300 x SCO screen mode would product: 

A]P Lino % e>i = JAiHl 

This is comfortably inside the 38kHz frequency llmil and would therefore be accept- 
able. Many cheaper VGA monptors. however, stop short of this vertical frequency, and 
none ol them would stretch to the higher resolutions starling at 1 .024 by 768.

Continuously compromise, 

All this talk of screens, modes, and reso- 
lutions con sound tuke gobbled ygook, bui in 
practice sitting in burnt of an Amigo,, Picasso 
is very easy to use. In the majority of cases, 
ivliere users might have one main job for 
the Amiga, it is conceivable that once a 
screen mode was chosen, it would be easy 
to forget that the card was in place at all 

Users of the Emplant Macintosh emula- 
tor can use Picasso as their primary display 
board to make use of higher resolutions and 
more colour thanks to a Picasso driver now 
available with the Em plant software. 

Suon to be upgraded to enable true 32-bit 
Mac emuta(ioii r the Em plant and Picasso 
combination works much footer than using 
the Amiga display and alone and is sup- 
plied by Elitiersoft who can be contacted on 
09082201% 

The comparison between this card and 
Retina is a difficult one to avoid, so Jet's 
make it., Retina is a better quality display 
card, and has a maximum resolution of 
2..4LK1 by 1,200 - far in excess of Picasso's 
L ,280 by 1,624. Bji addition it has a better 
paint package in VDPatnt and seems to 
have a steadier signal. 

Picasso, nn the other hand, is j List as good 
at its own resolutions and is far simpler to 


install and use. Its through -port enables 
easy switching from Amiga to Picasso dis- 
play, and there should be no need fora sec- 
ond monitor or switcher box as required by 
Retina. 

As a low no-hassle display device, 
then, Picasso has an edge and should sd| on 
thiiri strength it not on Its higher end quality.

■ MULTIMEDIA 



Would you put your Amiga on the 
stage? Stevie Kennedy sits back and 
takes in a show with highland 
multimedia thespians, Zoom Theatre 



M ol many nf US would be sur- 
prised these days nt the use of 
Atnigas in the video and TV 
wuild to produce graphics., animations* and 
fLLi the role of budget desktop video work- 
station, but if an Al^KJ was to pop its mon- 
itor screen round the curtain nf a live 
theatre performance, it might raise a few 
py throws. Take a trip north to see Zoom 
Theatre at work and that's exactly what will 
happen. 

Zoom sire a small Scottish company 
based In InvergordtM, tar lo the north of the 
theatrical heartland that is f-d inburgh, yet 
in this unlikely Setting a quiet revolution in 
multimedia theatre is taking place. 

With only their Amiga* and a range of 
video and Midi equipment Zoom have cre- 
ated, find toured with, what is possibly the 
world's first live multimedia play, and cer- 
tainly the first produced on the Amiga;. 

The company was formed in 1991 as a 
sister of the long established and popular 
Clcnvn Jewels, who have been touring wilh 
a vanety of children's shown since \ %5. 

When John McGeoch and a few others in 
the group became intrigued in the possibil- 
ity of using video, computer graphics, and 
animation during shows, they came 
together as Zoom Theatre and were soon 
on the road with their first production. The 
Present. 

Using only limited cartoon computer 
graphics with little interaction between 
these, the actors, and the audience, The 
Present was a precursor to the group's next 
and much more ambitious project Exhibit 
A, which was shown recently at the 
Edinburgh Fringe and billed as a "multi- 
media show". 

Containing over 20 solid minutes of 
computer animation displayed on a huge 
video projector screen, the production was 
a major exercise in the practical application 


of A mi bias to live entertainment 

At the company's base in Invergorden, 
an A 4 000 with 20Mb RAM and an 
Opal Vision board produces most of the 
graphics with the help of Imagine, Scenery 
Animator and APTro, while a mure modest 
ASM Hue deals with the Korg Ml synthe- 
sizer and ETH simpler responsible tnr the 
soundtrack and special sound effects. 



Once scripted, story -boarded find ren- 
dered, the animations Arc laid onto lli-8 
video using a G2+ genlock, and an S-VHS 
working tape made for use with a. large 
LCD video projector which sends every- 
thing to the big screen live on stage. The end 
result is ti mixture of digitised images, ren- 
dered animations, hand -drawn graphics,

FT GZ- grrtJock. r'rnn 1 

projected during the 
thotc oi a rrniffr video 

and a show of a unique nature 

When the live action starts, an A 1 500 
with genlock, VLab, and a concealed video 
camera (more of which later I takes care of 
the various real-time Amiga functions, and 
the actors do their best to act in conjunction 
with a lively, but very stupid, video sercm 
This is not as easy as it sounds, and leaves 
very little room fur fluffed lines. 

"You hare to time yourself exactly with a 
video over which you have no control/' 
John McGeoch told me, "And Sitting is a 
big problem too. " 

As it would be impossible to see the 
images on the video projector screen it light 
were to fall on it, the company has to work 
in completely blacked -out venues using 
Cunningly placed lighting for the human 
actors and any other stage elements but this 
is only one of many problems John and 
friends had to overcome to get Exhibit A on 
the stage. 

Using animations wilh over 10,000 
frames, digitised video grabs, and hundreds 
of megabytes of raw graphics is all very 
well, but John was often faced with prob- 
lems the solutions to which were tedious, 
timeHTonsunung, and unproductive. What 
many Amiga Owners might find surprising 
is that it was mainly the AWfJ s fault. 

"We had big hopes for the A4GO0* and 
we bought one of the first released;" said 
John, *but iifs useless." 

The A40GO, flagship of the Amiga range 
and multimedia maestro, useless for exactly 
the job it was designed to dp? What did he 
mean? 

H W(ll Opal Vision won't work at the 
same time as our genlock, so we use the 
A 4000 with Opal Vision to do most of the 


Musical lynchpin 

The Amiga 500 Plus, if you can still find one, costs less than £250, A Korg Ml syn- 
thesizer costs Upwards of £800, yet with lhe hE, P off KCS sequencer. Zoom Theatre's 
Ml, allied to an expensive EPS sampler, slavishly obeys the Amiga s commands to 
produce the music soundtrack and special effects needed throughout the show. 

"We will get a professional musician to come In to lay down the music Itself/' 
John said "but whereas before we had to toke it as if was finished on tape, we can 
now mess about with it after he’s gone 

Everything s on Midi files so we can experiment, and using Ihe Amiga in the first 
place means we pay less. These guys charge- by the hour, you know, 1 

And what sort of samples do you use? 

"Mostly 1 5-bit, as they tend to be Instruments like clarinets and so on, but we re 
looking at using one of the better 5-bit samplers lor special effects. These don t 
really have to bo 16-bfrL quality, unlike Ihe music-" 

Oorrt you find 16-bit samples a little unwieldy? 

""With our present setup we can only have eight In memory at once, which is a bit 
limiting when you use so many in a show. If we could use more 8-bit samples or find 
a 16-bit sampler with better facilities, it would make life a lot easier/ 



Ci| *1 1 1 Ifl 


graphics, then transfer them to the A 1900 fro 
be put on tape. 

"With no SCSI interface we couldn't 
drive our optical disk, su wt were forced t-. 
transfer lOjOOO frames of animation plus all 
the other graphics using floppies. If we 
didn't have the Splitz V Join/ program that 
cocnes with ADPro, we wouldn't hare been 
able to do it 

**' We've only just managed fro get our 
hands on Commodore's SCSI interface. so 
things should improve, though it's been a 
long wait/' he said. 

"Hbw they can release a machine for 
professional use, especially one that - 
aimed at graphics, without a SCSI interface, 
is beyond me " 

Another problem. John claimed, was that 
of memory fragmentation on the A4CHN):

; uickly and swap between pmigrams a]] the

Amiga's huge advantage in multitasking 
cwTPcanments. 

Si! how long, 3 wanted to know, had 
Z»m been using Amigas, and how long 
: j at take to prod uce the graphics for the 


realty used them on. I suppose it must have 
been about two or three months with two 
machines running full time to create our 
animations for the show.* 

And wliat software d id they use? 

Imagine 2.0 was used for a Lot of (he

graphics, and Scenery Animator for 
scape fly-through*, because it s a lot easier 
than Vista Pro. DPaint is handy foe adding 
touches Jater, and for finishing the animat 
tions bv adding backdrops. 

Producing a show iike Kxhihir A then 
touring with it is a la bur of love and not a 
career designed to make fortunes for the 
actors involved. 

Zoom Theatre, Like so man 1 ! of its kind, 
relies for its production monec on the 
Scottish Arts Council, with additional help 
from the Highlands and Islands Enterpri^ 
Council. 

If a project is judged suitable for funding. 
a gran! is made and the comp am can go 
ahead with the lengthy process of putting 
the show' together, stretching thu funds as 
far as they will go, then it's off on the road 
where touring can be anything but easy. 

" We do about five shows a week when 
we tour, and it takes four hours or so to seE 
up each show, so most of nur time is pretti- 
much taken up," John told me. 

How long do the tours last? "Sis. weeks, 
normally, so by the time they finish we re all 
ready for a break." 

Do you make much from the shows? 
"'The aim is to break even, so we have to 
attract decent crcnvds and that's only puts si - 
ble with children' s shows.* 
Using the Amiga live 
back-stage gave John and 
Zoom Theatre the ideal 
opportunity to give inter- 
activity a whole new 
meaning. By placing a 
video camera in a hidden 
location at the side of the 
stage, then hooking it up to

m A 1500 with VLab video digitiser, John's 
team were able to select a member of the 
audience at random and include them in the 
pla; "We d raise the house lights enough Eo 
^et a grab, then snap someone with VLab, 
The Amiga operator just sucks the image into 
\DProand TV Paint, and the result goes into 
Sea la,' said (ohn, 

And wh.it happens to the unsuspecting 
victim then? 

"WelL we put their face on a Fashion 
Police warned poster which appears on 
screen at a certain point in the play, and the 
Fashion Police go and arrest the person for 
having bad dress sense. 

"Then we run the Sea la screen through 
the video projector and re-dress them bv 
swapping brushes of clothes from the year 

aar 

You mean like the old game where you 
swap cardboard legs, bodies and head* until 
you get a whole character? 

"A bit like that, yes, but this way we 
involve the audience directly in the show," 
Sound* tike a lot of fun r but l hope it never 
happen^ to me! 

Finally* I wanted to know where the 
future lay lor this sort of show: 11 'When we 
get re-writeable CD-ROM storage we can 
bring a really huge show to the audience, but 
tor the moment we're working at making it 
even man? interactive, 

‘“the next show will, be based on a restau- 
rant idea where the audience choose from an 
on-stage menu of show element*. If they go 
k>r a song, we do a song, and so on. It's a bit 
tike an ad venture game on stage, with every- 
thing coming together in a broadly set out 
plot/ 1 

With shows of this nature in the pipeline, 
the Amiga and Zoom Theatre look set to 
enjoy the applause of delighted audiences for 
some time to come

High density 





rip-off? 


,g l am ■writing to hnd out ii users of high density (HO) (loppy 
y drives are being ripped off. I was recantfy in desperate need of 


some blank disks, and visited my local computer shop where l saw 
normal 680 k double density (DP> disks at £6.95 for ten and HD disks 
at £12,95 for ten. 

Not having my bram in high gear at the lime I asked ihe assistant 
-Hal the difference was, and explained that I had an A 400 Q/ 03 D- 

He replied that unless l had an HD drive the disks would be useless, so I bought 20 DD 
: skg for £13,50 When I get home ! realised what an idiot I had been and what an idiot 
^ne assistant had been. The A4000/030 comas complete with an HD drive in it (er„. yes, 
we know - Ed )1 

Then I recalled reading a letter to a magazine about putting a hole in the top left-hand 
comer of a normal disk, thus converting it to an HD disk, sg I tried it Lo and behold it 
* i rked. Not only could I get two disks' worth of data on one disk, I could buy the cheaper 
D disks and, armed with a 3/Sths drill, convert them to HD. 

I looked very closely at ihe two different disks, and they both have 135 hacks par inch 
r 60 tracks, so why are we being asked to pay an extra £5 for a hole? is this a rip-off or 
s shis $ rip-off? 

S F Malfiom Hove 


' tw practice of drilling holes in DD disks has been around in the PC world tor years now, 
jnd there are marry who wit insist that there ts no difference between HD disks and their 
reaper cousins apart from the extra hole. However, it's not as simple as that 

Inside each floppy, there is a disk coated with a layer of magnetic materia/, and this 
coating is completely different on the more expensive HD disks. 

White it is possible to "convert* a DD disk to act like an HD disk , the conversion is a 
crude one and the magnetic material of she disk will haw problems with the bit depth of 
me information hei&g stored on it and me way in which that information is read and 
written , 

High density drives work faster f/ian ordinary dnves and use different magnetic flux 
rates to lay down and retrieve data, and ait this places a great strain oh the DD fifth 
:olumnists. The resuit is Shat data soon becomes corrupted, and may disappear alto- 
gether after about a weak, 

Using converted DD disks is not recommended, but could be an economical method of 
short term storage, and if you're going Jo do it at ail you should ensure that you use only 
good duality branded disks. 




Drat 

those 

dongles 


Having read your review of 
Brilliance m the October issue, l 
had planned to buy the product, 
hut my decision changed slightly 
when I heard it had a hardware don- 
gle fitting in the joystick port. 

E'n be quite honest, I don't- want to 
have to swap dongles every time J load a 
serious package and had hoped that after 
X-C’AD we had seen the Iasi of th^ things. 

I mcan r it's really quite ridiculous and 
the disadvantages far outweigh the 
advantages. What happens if you want to 
multitask two such programs? 

[ enjoy playing the odd game, but as 
the dongle plugs into the joystick port, 
you can imagine the headache it's going to 
be swapping between one dongle |o 
another on top of swapping the stupid 
things with the joystick.. I presume my 
port's going to he in for a tough time too. 

Do software manufacturers really think 
they are going to gain from including 
these useless plastic things? What hap- 
pened when Ocean released Robocop J 
with a dongle? The game gut pirated to 
death, that's what! 

The dongle may stop a few pirates, but 
the game would probably sell less than 
usual because, I presume, many people - 


Stop the PD pirates 


I am writing this letter as a plea to all your readers to help 
In the fight a gain si pirated software. 

As a PD library with around 4,000 disks we are con- 
stantly being sent new PO software for Inclusion in 
the library, and from time to lime wo receive commercial 
software from enthusiasts who have been given a copy 
from a friend and who genuinely believe It to be public 
domain. 

This happens quite frequently with new dip ail which, 
being reedy to use, and cut straight from the page, is eas- 
ily doctored to remove copyright notices and credits. 

11 someone otters you software that you haven't seen 
before, please inquire as to its origins before re-distribut- 
ing it to other users. If you have any doubts you can 
always contact us and we ll be glad to help you out. 


Remember most software, either PD or commercial, will 
have some sort of copyright or distribution notices, per- 
haps as a read.me doc rile somewhere on the disk. 

P Topping , Your Choice 


OH, folks . you heard the man. Just because a piece of 
software appears to be PD doesn't mean its author isn't 
being ripped off, 

This covers both commercial software and 
shareware < which is often sold as free or public domain 
rather than under the try-before-you-buy intentions of its 
author. 

The Simple message is that you may unwittingly be a 
party, innocent or otherwise, to theft so keep your eyes 
peeled tor dodgy disks r 


me included - don't 
want the stupid things clutter- 
ing up their rooms, h this situa- 
tion going to change? [t better, 
because if ii doesn't software compa- 
nies are going to watte Him* and 
rt^imrcKj and the consumers are going to 
end up with collections of worthless 
lumps of plastic.

Tutorial vote 


I am writing in support of Franceses 
Shearc roll's letter in the October issue 
regarding your tutorials. I loo think 
that tutorials are tops and would like 
to s$e some on games programming 
using Amos and DPainl III. 

As I'm writing, I might as well ask 
about Amos, i received a copy free 
with a magazine and so don't have Ihe 
manual. Is there any way to break from 
Ihe program once it is running? 

Many's the time I have spent hours 
on pari of a program and am eager to 
get it going, but once it is running I 
can t get back lo the editor lo make 
changes or even save it. 

Mark Lamb, Co- Antrim 


Amiga Computing has the longest run- 
ning Amos tutorial in t he world in the 
shape of our Amos Insight column. 
You can find towards the back of 
every issue, and earlier this year we 
distributed a collection of these 
columns on the CoverDisk in the form 
of a complete guide to programming 
your own Pacm&n game. That should 
be tutorial enough for most folk 
Your Amos proO/em is a simple 
matter at pressing the Control and C 
keys at the same time. This combina- 
tion will break any Amos program run- 
ning under the interpreter, returning 
the user at once to the edlfort and wilf 
often work to exit from complete com- 
piled programs as weft.

Your fun ns afoMf the hassle and irritation 
caused by this method of copy prataJuw is 
Jkujgfc, and is is probably LUi/y this reac- 
tion from customers which has stopped games 
CCTHfwnies from making more extensive use of

involvement, if course.

[ ha tv magazines th^t can't decide on their 
address! 

Having returned home with Issue 65 in 
my hot little hands, I carefully removed 
the two disks, made a cup of coffee, and 
sat in my favourite chair to read my 
favourite magazine. Until, that is* 1 
readied page 24, the prize survey. 

Unfortunately, I didn't get to the line 
that said "turn to page 31 for derails", and 
without turther ado booted up my trusty 
steed, made a copy of the disk, and com- 



This month s club mention goes lo

Jiffy bjg, which I duly 
addressed with the

Caligari fix 

Who says Caligari doesn't work with the 
A 1 200? It does* Just use a PD program 
called FakeMem to fool the Amiga into 
[funking it has 2k less chip RAM, con- 
verting this into 512k fast RAM instead of 
l Mb chip RAM Caligari looks for this sort 
of configuration, so with this simple little 
PD utility all is well. 

The only problem is that the Workbench 
cursor shows up on the Caligari screen, but 
I've redesigned it to he a four dot square 
and at doesn't cause problems. To change 
Caligari screen colours, you coo change the 
Workbench colours, as Caligari uses these 
for die screen and icon strips. 

As I own an A 1200, I don't know if 
using the FakeMem program before run- 
ning Caligari will work on an AG0Q r hut if 
you've got 2Mb ol RAM It might.

Traditional 

disks 

Ln response to Nick Burton's letter in the 
August issue and your request for more 
views, I agree entirely with him in his 
request for old style CoverDisks 
and would not mind paying a 
little extra for a second disk 
with ail excellent pro- 
gram like Interfile on it. 
What has disap- 
pointed me most b 
the fact that there 
have been no music 
samples on the 
CoverDisk since 
February 1W3, and this 
was one of my main rea- 
sons foe buying your excel- 
lent magazine.

As for music dimples and tunes, m

I was looking for some help with hard 
disks ns E have just bought an A 1 200 with 
fcFMb hard drive and have been buying 
ytnir magazine for the last few months. I 
notice that you have many useful utilities 
on your disks, but 1 have had trouble copy - 
ing them to my hard drive. Net -n i I the u ti l- 
rfies work when I drag the icons across. 


1 would like to tell everybody about the 
recent service which E got from Mhtdscape 
International, when l returned a Miracle 
keyboard to them because three of the 
keys were not pressure sensitive The key- 
board had been bought for mv second- 
hand so I lud no idea of its- age or if it was 
covered by the warranty; When J 
explained this to Mindscape, however, 
they just said not h> worry and asked me 
to return the unit for investigation. 

I returned the keyboard by courier lo 
arrive on a Monday before close of busi- 
ness,. and I wo days later I received a 
replacement free of charge which had 
been dispatched the same day they got the 


original! All I can say is that either the 
engineers at Mmdscape work miracles in 
finding faults to determine whether a 
replacement is required, or !hat 
Mind&capo's after sales service is second 
to none. 

Well done Mind -scape, and thank you. 

A G tiiuelitiffe, Norwich 

Hmm.,. you don't happm to have Mntdscape 
shares or a relative rtf the company, do you?

Long live 

biitd^et! 

Well done to the likes of Team 17 and 
Blood house for not only bringing us 
excel lent qua Iffy software, but also 
getting the message about prices. 
Alien Breed Special Edition is only 
£11, and Stardust is only £1 3. 

Being a mere student t can usually 
only afford a game every two months 
or so, but with prices this low 1 can 
indulge myself every month, Add to 
this the excellent gameplay of these 
games (can't wait for Skidmarks) and 
many of the other big software 
houses are put to shame. Long live 
high quality budget! 

On another point, why have you 
started doing phone-in competitions 
such as the 0391 numbers? At least 
with a postal competition the entrant 
has the choice of spending only 30p 
to enter, and! can enter more than 
once for less. Besides, il gives you 
the opportunity to colour your post- 
cards In bright colours, so why the 
sudden change? 

Daryl Booth. Ramsgate 

Budget software has become on* of 
the most rmportajil sectors of l/ie 
games industry over ffre pasf few 
years, and hardly a fop ten chart 
goes by without one or more budget 
releases riding high. 

Perhaps this is a message lo the 
software houses that many more 
users - even impoverished students 
- would buy rather than pirate games 
if the price was tower. As you say. 
tong live gtrafrfy budge/ games. 

Our competitions are organised so 
as to be as easy to enter as possible, 
which is why the phone-in compos 
were introduoed. Mfe appreciate, how- 
ever, that some readers begrudge 
using these phone line s thinking, 
wrongly, that we make a mint out of 
rhe phone charge s. We are looking at 
the situation and may begin to offer a 
choice of phone or postal entry (or

iTib-tions to prepare the machine- for

Workbench, and Amiga DOS too. The

This creates two directories in the RAM

The final part of 
Mark Smiddy’s 
introduction to 


AmigaDOS explains 
the ins and outs of 
automated startups 


here is a solution 

Two Amiga IX>5 commands control the 
execution of scripts. EXECUTE runs a 
named script and FAIL AT sots the Shell's 
sensitivity to errors. Therefore you can 
run the boot disk's startup scrip! like this; 


Or altered by F AFLAT, the default level 
set by AmigaDOS is IC3 r sy the following 
command will allow all rum-serious ernins 
ro pass: 


can try booting the machine. In dire cir- 
eumsLma-s. this command may be added 
to the head of the just 

like any other command, fur instance; 


WAILAT 11 


> EH CUT |p^tDlilc;5 Star tuirirqumcE 


If a startup script contains a bug (some- 
thing Ls wrung) the script will usually stop 
harmlessly. However, in some circum- 
stances it is necessary to execute the script 
regardless of previous errors: by ignoring 
them. There are fog r possible error "'lev- 
els" returned after every command and 
only fatal errors will stop a script. The 
emirs are: 


Similarly, you can raise the failure level 
even higher to force the script to continue 
after anv error like this: 


FJUUT 21 

lm EHVIK: IflfliEnv ALL 4UIC1 
tssiirt IHV: MM: In it 

etc,.. 


1>f AlLAT 21 


Once done you can test a 
like this: 


script 


but it should be removed, once the scrip! 
has been ! Lilly tesEed and debugged. 
Commodore leaves this command in 
place, although that is to 


1 ? £ Ic r jr e “ijd t f i e x : S 7 5 t a r t l w - s e qu ea : e

encountered: fatal

If a script passes this test (warnings from 
the imrs daemon are normal) with 
the normal failure level of 
1CX then you

provide compatibility with a wide range 
of machine variations. 

Three of the possible returns have sym- 
bolic names that you will see referred to 
from time lo time. These art":

Every time you enter a command 
Amiga DOS looks for it in am# of many 
directories. Most commands live in C:, of 
courst 1 , but a large number do not, FOR- 
MAT Lind DI5KCOFV usually live in the 
System drawer (an ancient compatibility 
issue) and other commands in SY3:TooLs, 
SYS:Utilities and so on. AmigaDOS 
searches something called the ''path" that 
iis actually ^ lis-1 of directories to be 
searched 

The default "path''' looks in the Shell’s 
current directory and the C: assign rm-nt: 
nowhere else. If Amiga! X IS fails to find the 
command there it returns with an error 

However, you can lull AmigaDOS to 
look in other places by specifying addi- 
tional paths, lor Instance, the following: 

1MATH Si m 

adds the $: assignimtfit to the current path 
lis|. In other words,. AmigaDOS will look in 
the S: assignment if it cannot find the 
requested command (verb) in either the 
current directory or the C assignment. 

PATH is usually only executed once 
from the Startup-sequence and multiple 
directories can ho added at unci'. It Is 
important lo note, however, whenever this 
command is called, the ADD switch must 
be used (as above) to prevent the existing 
path settings from being overwritten ^ 

Bool your Working AmigaDOS disk and 
call ED hi edit your Rootdisk’s SlarLup- 

Siipte ZrOA startup 


sequence as described earlier. Add the fol- 
lowing immediately after IFREFS; 

Pith rai; it i: ST 5 : HIS tit tup STSiSjfStfi 
.1 rid ; tfifllp,- 

This means the search directories for that 
disk are RAM, SYS:C SYS:S, 
SYS:WBSiartup and SYSiSystem, 

You may have noticed that one of the 
directories in that specification has not yet 
been created. That's because this directory 
is usually only used from Workbench, and 
there tori', should have an icon associated 
with it. 

What is the besl metbHid to create theM a 
icon i bed" directories - drawers in the 
Workbench sense? Well, that depends on 
how you are going to access them, If a 
directory is created from Workbench, it 
automatically receives an icon, but it one Is 
made from AmigaDOS It does not: saving 
time and d isk space. 

I he fastest and most convenient way to 
mgke the WBStartup drawer is lo use the 
Workbench "'New Drawer" function. You 
cannot do this for directories you have 
made from AmigaDOS though, because 
Workbench will think there is a naming 
dash - trv it with System. 

i- J 

This problem is an easy one to salve: 
there are two methods. You urn either cre- 
ate a new drawer icon for 6m directory In 
question using lam EdK or (more simply) 
copv an existing drawer icon into the 
vacant Space. Icons are suffixed ".info", SO 
you could copy the System drawer icon 
from your current Workbench disk like 
this: 

1 >WT ET i:SfsHI-i nt p f( flontDllk: 

When the disk's window is closed and re- 
opened the drawer icon appears - although 
you may need to selecl "Clean up" to see it. 
If you want to use a different existing 
image,. you must unsure it is of type 


DRAWER: l> onEdil will set the correct type 
for you. 

Workbench 2.04 ha s L i nagging hangover 
From the earlier veilpiotvs: keyboard I, mint* 
From Workbench 2.1, keyboard selection is 
completely automatic - it's handiiHi by die 
II 1 refs daemon, up until then it is lhi j 
responsibility of | he Startup-sequence to 
select the correct oth 1 . Workbenches of 3.1 
and higher have a compatible facility hut 
this Ls left for programmers only. 

Actlvaiing the correct keyboard layout 
on Workbench 2.D4 startup disks is accom- 
plished thus by adding the following Ijjm? 
so the startup -equence anywhere between 
IPREFSand LOADWB: 

51E:3fitH^itlUp £B ’ 

flic GB key map is correct for LK machines 
- you may have to change it for your coun- 
try. You should also copy the command 
into the System directory (after booting 
from Workbench ) tike this: 

1>C0 PI STSifysten/SdRaCi TO BQfltGilriSyriEl 

Now is the ume to get a program to 
boot We'll start with something small - 
since there's nol much room left on our 
self-hmllngdiskl 

Before going any further, you might 
want to make a copy of your BootDisk and 
keep it hiindy for occasions where you 
want a quick bootable disk. 

Decide for yourself what program you 
want to boot. Look through your 
Workbench disk set - or even some recent 
Amiga Computing Cover Disks - and find 
something that runs from a Workbench 
icon. 

Drag copy the icon from its listing disk 
on Id your bool able disk. Let's say you 
chose a fictional program: 
Super DuperClock- 

Edit the Startup-sequence as described 
above and insert the ruime of the program 
just before the J, 'LoadWET command, fur

Save that, and bml the machine with l 
new disk. If everything went according 
plan, you should shortly see your clur 
program light up on the screen 

But w- hero's Workbench? Mo 
Workbench programs assume they hav 
been started from Workbench (almost evs 
thing can be started from AmigaDOS) 1 
they do jyoi return contnil straight away. 

En mosl cases you will have to quit t 
program, whatever it before you can 
Workbench. This is not acceptable b' 
AmigaDOS provides a solution: A Co 
manil which actually multi-tasks your p 
gram m total harmony with Workbenc 
called RUN, 

First of all We nfied to copy the cumrUcti 
onRn our Bootable disk tike so: 

1>C6PT C : RUN tP loplDiskiC 

Now make it available to the command 
the startlip-»*|tienoe script; 

RUN dJL: >l¥ll: 3 uc e r D jp k- r Cl u 1 1 
Loa riN R ; s tar t thv lafkbeqtN 


lain 


That’s all there is to 0 T The two extra b 
<N1L: nind > N E L: Lire some 1/C J redirection 
it's rather fcK> advatwed to explain here, 
is required su llial the initial Shell proa 
Chin close its window when ENTX. U 
encountered, You can use ihis method 
complete safety with over 98 per vent of 
Workbench-based prngrams. 

Well-written programs will compli 
something is missing iintj tell you what 
need - all yuu have In do is supply it 
cases where things get really tricky, \ 
might find a utility like SnoopDOS {a\ 
able from good PD libraries) is a g 
debugginig aid. 

To conclude thisi series, two compli 
ready -to- run startup sequences are p rev id 
which highlight the differences between 
two systems, A disk designed to boot or 
version 2 machine (such as an A-^H) w 
work fine on a later model such Nis an AJ 
- but not the other way around. 

The scripts are modified versions of 
supplied by Commodore - so if you w 
compatibility wilh all other models y 
should study the Unmolested versions. 

The special string >N1L: has been hiJ‘ 
to some commands - this prevents the c 
mand generating output in the event 
some error - that ha.-s the side effect of o - 
ing a Workbench screen with a console 
dow Lind clashing w’ith ll J refs. 

The -C':^ tn front of some command 
indicates they are to be stored in the C di 
tory - not eLsewKere. This provides a sr 
performance increase over the path se.i 
ing system and can shave a second or 
off the startup tune. More importanlly, 
shows which commands you need a 
where to put them! To use these scripts \ 
will also need thu following comma nd^ 
your G directory; PATH, VERSION, St 
PATCH, ADDBLIFFERS and 
MOUNT.

. buT the irHau^ bui/nni ib -raJpm/E' to 


ackmg has a simple definition: 
The aft of gaining unauLhorij^ed 
acce&s to information held on a 
computer or computer-based system, 
whether that computer is connected to a 
modem, Lir similar communications 
device, or physically located in the same 
place as the hacker. 

Computer hacking has nun 1 ed on since 
the phrase first came into common com- 
puter industry usage in the early 70s, 
Then, the phrase was common I v applied 
to a computer nerd who spent most of his 
spare time playing around with electron- 
ics to produce a VHF radio from (seem- 
ingly) an empty com flakes packet, a tube 
of glue and some wire, 

It took the arrival of modems on to the 
computing scene in the late 3 ^ 70s to 
change the image of the hacker from 
benign to slightly malevolent, with the 
nerd turning into a computer huff gaining 
unauthorised access to an online sy stem, 
as seen in films such as War Games and, 
mure recently,, Sneakers. 

Computer hacking has its origins in 
phone phre&k- 
ing, a hobby 
that also star- 
red in the US, 
when electron- 
ics enthusiasts 
of the 60s and 
70s discovered 
they could use 
special control 
tones over the 
phone net- 
work to switch 
calls all over 
the world - as 
ope ra tors do - 
without paying. 

The first phone phreaker who shot to 
prominence in the 70s was John Diaper, 
who became known as Captain Crunch 
after the breakfast cereal in which he 
found a free penn y whistle I hat generated 
the 2,601) cycles per second {hertz) signal 
that AT&T used to Control its phone net- 
work at the time. 

Using the whistle, which effectively did 
the ^ime job as an electronic bo* of tricks 
costing thousands of dollars in the early 
]97fls r Draper was able to call around the 
world free nf charge. His much-publicised 
activities (he got caughl several times) 
prompted other electronics enthusiasts to 
built the electronic equivalent of a penny 
whistle and phrcak calls around the world 
free of charge. 

AT&T and other telecoms companies, 
BT included, gradually upgraded their 
networks to the point where any audio 
activity on the local loop (the name for the 
link between the phone exchange and the 
subscriber's phone) was carefully moni- 
tored for “ unusual" tones, so putting the 
phone phreakers out of business 

It was natural then, that when comput- 
ers and modems arrived on the scene, that 
the p breakers should migrate to the online 
world and start applying their knowledge 
of the phone networks to the modem 
world. 

Pretty soon* electronic bulletin board 


Whether it's done 
by smart schoolkids 
or professional 
cartels, one thing’s 
for sure about 
hacking - it can 
cause untold 
damage. Steve Gold 
introduces the 
subject and 
presents a 
brief history 


gave us some vital information about 
Other, non -public Prestel access nu mbers. 

by dialling these other numbers, I dis- 
covered one new PteSlel computer that 
had an ID and password on its welcome 
page. After keying in these details, T was 
welcomed! as a system manager - an short 
I have top level access to Prestel. 

Along with a fellow computer enthusi- 
ast /contributor to MLcronet, Robert 
Schifreen, 1 spent several days looking 
around Prestd, exploring the nooks and 
crannies that 1 had never before had 
access to. 

Then, being (reasonably) honest, ti 
*Luptd, citizens, we told MLcronet of our 
findings. Micronel fold Prestel who, per- 
haps surprisingly r merely closed the loop- 
holes we had found, thanking US into the 
bargain. 

bi* months later, in March TOT after j 
lot of anti-hacker publicity in the national 
prL'hSr we were arrested, by Scotland 
Yard's then fledgling computer crimt 
squad, and charged with offences under 
the Forgerv Act, It wasn't difficult to see 



< 


systems (BBSs) sprang up around the 
world, and one of the first topics of discus- 
sion was (you guessed) phone phreaksng 
and related activities. 

It was equally natural that information 
on phone numbers, IDs and passwords 
should be exchanged on these early BBSs, 
Back in I9fl4, this writer, having played 
with phones since the 60^ decided to 
invest in & modem for my computer. I 
joined Micronet, a computing information 
provider for Prestel, the BT online view- 
data network 

Password 

Micron et has several thousand pages of 
information online on Preitel- Pres tel, 
which still operates as a business informa- 
tion service today, had around a quarter 
of million of leletext-style pages held on 
its databases, for whieh users needed a 
computer, modem, l D and password to 
access. 

Unfortunately, because Prestel was 
then a trunk call away from my parent's 
house,, the phone bills that arrived at the 
end Eif the quarter stretched into the hun- 
dreds of pounds. Yours truly was forced 
to improvise and start writing about com- 
puters - on Microtek 

By the end of 198-4, 3 bad full editing 
rights on PtasteL Along with other editors, 
in the course of our alnc ironic meander- 
ing^ we came across some pages that 


why - we didn't dispute that we had 
obtained unauthorised access, but we did 
dispute that it was illegal. That's wh 1 . 
Schifreen and I pleaded not guilU 
Looking back, we had nothing to lose - wi 
both lost out gibs, so w-h.it the hey? It too* 
several eourl appearances spanning more 
than three years before we cleared our 
names mice and for all. The courts thcr 
ruled that the application of the Forger 
Act was a misapplication of the Jaw. 

Of course, had we been prosecuted 
under the Theft Act, charged with the tup 
pence- worth of electricity we had stolen ir 
using Prestel illicitly, we would have beer 
found guilty and probably fined £100 iw 
so. 

Bui BT insisted on testing the law. M 
well as costing BE an estimated £L8 mi- 
linn, the case of The Crown vs Cold anc 
Another went into the statute books and 
presented The Crown with a need l 
change the law to take account of com- 
puter hacking - specifically, the gaining of 
unauthorised access to computer systems 

The result was The Computer Misu 
Act, which passed in law in 1990. T 
was then, this is now. 

While the British Government pass 
the Computer Misuse Act in the liite su 
mer of 1990, it took the first real prosec 
Eion under the legislation almost thr 
years to percolate through E 
Magistrate's Court and up to t

According to Richardson, Bed worth 


Misuse Act 1 lie defence seemed to per- 
suade the jury to acquit Bed worth, 
although most now agree that the unnec- 
essary violence displayed against 
Bed worth at I he time of his arrest was the 
Police's undoing in this cast* as it set the 
jury against the Police from the earliest 
stages in the case, 

According to Peter bom me r, a com- 
puter security Consultant and the author 
of the ,! J.totiT " Hurnikod:, written under his 
pen name of Hugo Cornwall, said he was 
surprised at the not-guilty verdict, given 
the nature of the defence, 

"1 think it was successful because the 
jury is looking to let the guy off, due to 
their heavy- handed behaviour when they 
arreted him,' r he said. 

According to Sommer, although the 
defence of computer addiction was an 
unusual erne, it was able to beat the 
charges involved, 

■"In law, to make a prosecution of this 
type work, you have to ensure that there

has clearly happened in this case/' 
Sommer said, Despite the publicity sur- 
rounding the case, Sommer said that there 
are very few re a I hackers, such a* those 
portrayed in W a r Ga mes and Snea kers. 

"These cases axe always very interest- 
ing hut a distraction from the more mun- 
dane/' he said, adding that the bottom 
line for many companies wa»- a massive 
build-up of defences against the perceived 
threat of computer hackers. 

barrister Kelman, meanwhile, said thai 
the significance of the case was nothing to 
do with the wrongful acts its sought to 
punish, 'but the realisation that maybe 
what is. required is a little more under- 
standing and a little condemnation.'" 

Kelman admitted that Bed worth was a 
second generation "anorak", but pointed 
out there are now large numbers of third 
generation anoraks at large, all of whom 
are well vetted in computers. 

" i he chi id. whose best friend is a com-

Misutte Act, 

Nei! Woods, aged 24, a computer sci- 
ence graduate and later computer sates- 
m,m, as well as university researcher Kjrl 
StrickJiirid, aged 22, had pleaded guilty lo 
the charges and so beeunie the firsl hack- 
ers to be piled Under the Computer 
Misuse Act, 1490,, in the UK. 

During the brief trial, the court heard 
how the pair caused an estimated 
£123,(300- worth of chaos while breaking 
into an estimated 10,000 on-line systems 
around the world. The list of hacked sys- 
tem reads like a who's who in the on-line 
world, ranging from NASA through to a 
European cancer research organisation. 


No country seemed safe from Woods and 
Stricklands' exploits. Systems in France, 
Germany, Italy, and Sweden were hacked 
in Europe, along with systems in the US 
and Canada, ns>l forgetting Russia, India, 
Singapore and Australia, lhe prosecution 
said in court that the list read like an atlas, 
rather than a list of offences. 

Woods and Strickland were charged 
with conspiring to obtain telephone ser- 
vices dishonestly over a two-year period, 
as well as publishing that information rm 
BBSs for other like-minded individuals to 
read. 

Presiding over the case, Judge Michael 
Harris said that, white he accepted their 
activities were not designed to cause dam- 
age, it was absolutely essential that com-

"Computers now form a central role in

financial details, confidential matters of 
companies and government departments 
and many business organisations. Some, 
providing emergency services, depend on 
their computers to deliver those services."

hackers known as the "eight-legged

Widespread 

In the US, modems have been in 
widespread use since the early fiOs, Ln 
1982, a typical US modem cost less than a 
quarter of the cost of its UK equivalent, 
thanks to a more liberal telecommunica- 
tions policy across the Atlantic. Tin? result 
was that the US experienced Its first 
Widespread hacking problems in \%2 t 
while UK computer users were more con- 
cerned with playing Manic Miner on (he 
then-new Sinclair Spectrum 

S he US legislature is fax more complex 
than in the UK, however, with petty inter- 
state squabbles resulting in criminals 
being able to drive over the state Ime and 
escape in true James Cagney style. 

In the late 80s, several state legisla- 
tures, notably those of California and 
Texas, passed specific anti-hacking laws. 
St took the case of Robert Morris in 1968 
to bring the US powers that be round to 
the fact that specific anti-computcr crime 
legislation simply does not work on its 


The Computer 
Misuse Act 

Ttie Computer Misuse Act came into force on August 29, 1990. The legislation, intro- 
duced in a private member's Bill by Michael Colvin, me Conservative MP lor Hornsey 
and Waterside, introduced three offences to (he statute boons 

The first level otlenoe ol obtaining unauthorised access to programs or dale hold on 
a computer is tryable only summarily by magiskaies and carries a maximum penalty of 

sik months' Imprisonment or a E2.00D fine, or both. 

An ollendpr is only be guilty of this first level of fence if ho intended to gain access 
and knew at the time that such access was unauthorised, or whore an insider know 
mnly exceeds the level □! authorisation to which s/ho is entitled 

Hackers face prosecution for a more serious, second level, offence if they obtain 
unauthorised access With intent to commit or io facilitate the commission ot lurther 
ottences, such as theft, Iraud or blackmail This ohence is triable either by magistrates 
or in Crown Courts, where it is punishable with up to five years' tail or an unlimited fine. 

Tho third level olfence involves the unauthorised modification ot computer data, 
This ohence isMas aimed at virus program creators and/or propagators, This offence 
is triable by magistrates and in the Crown Court, where it carries a maximum penalty o 
five years’ jail and an unlimited line. 


own, just as anti-drag legislation does no* 
work on its own, Merely making some- 
thing illegal does not eradicate the prob- 
lem. In many cases It can actually make 
thtf problem wonse, 

Robert Morris Junior (bis father was a 
retired figure in the US National Security 
Agency) created a worm program that 
masqueraded tfs a message file that 
whined from user to user on the Arpanet 

educational network. 

The Arpanet is a world-wide network 
of computer systems. The idea behind the 
network is that user 1 * ean communicate 
with each other with simple notes and 
programs. the Arpanet is really a free- 
form nottceboard- 

Ai Morris' worm program was read by 
its recipients, so it duplicated itself and 
posted copies to other users. hi addition, 
the program sat on the computer it was 
read on, running program loops, effec- 
tively paralysing the computer system. 

The Morris worm paralysed more than 
Sim Arpanet linked mainframes around 
the world- Faced with the million -dollar 
clean-up operation, and with red faces all 
round, the US government acted swiftly

Amiga Computing December 1993 


to form CERT - the Computer Emergency 
Resource Team - to ael as a SWAT -style 
learn to move in, analyse and, hopefully, 
solve computer crimes as they occurred- 
CEftT was set up in December of 1988. 
The group, assembled from more titan 
100 experts in several fields of computer 
expertise, is available around the chick, 
and operates under the control of the 
Pentagon and the Software Engineering 
Institute at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon 
University, where a six -mem her core 
team of CERT staff are based. 

Today, CERTi operations are 
shrouded in secrecy. Ultimate control of 
the team is, presumably, the task of the 
US President CERT staff reportedly have 
no legal powers. 

UERT's original brief was to amasa a 
central resource of information, based 
around an expert computer system pro- 
gram, that any citizen in the US can call 
upon. The concept is that cti a

team, able tn answer questions on com-

Serious Hack 

Today, CERT is called into action 
whenevef a serious hack occurs. Its 
actions are never reported. CERT is 
thought to have been involved in the 
banking industry’s first full scale ATM 
fraud a few months ago, 

Shoppers visiting the Bucktnnd Hills 
■ihoppinK mat! in ConnettKUt one week- 
end in mid-May of this year were not sur- 
prised to discover one of the mall's two 
AT Ms out of action. They were pleasantly 
surprised, however, to find that the bank 
had spotted the problem and thought- 
fully installed a temporary machine - on 
castors - to help them wi thd raw cash . 

Sadlv, after they inserted their cards 
and tapped in their PINs, they discovered 
that it had run out cash. The machine dis- 
appeared shortly afterwards. Within 
days, cardholders found that their cards 
had been used to withdraw S?0 r (ll)li worth 
of cash from acros* the US- 

Aecordin^ to the police, the whole 


affair was a scam. After stealing a second- 
hand ATM, fraudsters reprogrammed tht 
machine to accept cards and l’l Ns, but not 
give any money out. 

But while bank ATMs con be compro- 
mised, there is little evidence to suggest 
that hackers are posing a major threat to 
civilisation as we know it- 

When asked about the problem of com- 
puter lucking, Barrister Kolmar said thai 
hacking - as portrayed in the film 
Sneakers - is wildly overplayed- 

"The hacker has been the whipping boy 
for problems in companies since the cur- 
rent recession started. It's vital that people 
realise that teenage hackers are not 
responsible for all the ills of the computer 
society/ he said. 

peter Sommer (Hugo Cornwall) agree- 
with Reiman, tie said that he monitors at. 
hacking activity through the media (as hi- 
job as a computer consultant entails). He 
fold me that the incidence of hackere t ans 
in g problems for the an thnrities is remain ■ 
ing static in terms of numbers. 

J This means that, as a percentage, suet 
cases are actually fatting, when oner 
realises that the numbers of viruses and 
other simitar incidents is rising- There it 
absolutely no sign of growth at all/ he 
said. 

Obi the increase 

□tie? thing that Kelman and Sommt’ 
Are in agreement or. however, is that coo- 
puter-rekited fraud is on tho as 

witnessed by the A 1 M scam in the US. 

This problem is bound to grow as th* 
teenage hackers of the 1981k group up Ha 
become technically aware computer users 
The US ATM scam has caused etmstem* 
tion among banking officials, who a 
now scrambling to create new technolot 
card protection systems, ranging from i 
use of etched photocards [as seen on 
fSiSiP Visa and Royal Bank of Scotia 
plastic cards in the UK) through biometre 
scanning technology- 

tiiti metrics involves the use ot elec 
tronic images of the cardholder, his/ lie* 
fingerprints and even retinal Stans, 
ensure that the card user is the cardholdi:/’ 
Sources in the hacking community sue -I 
gest that the banks' actions are being cane 
fully observed by technology hacke 
genera I ly. 

This use of technology by hackers 
track the anti-hacking technologists i 
something that the authorities cann 
stop, It requires them to continually 
out new anti-hacking technology, in o 
to stay one step ahead. 

The ironic thing is that, as technol 
generally progresses, so the anti-hacki 
technologists will have to work e* 
harder to beat the hackers, whose a 
of technology to attack electronic sys 
is Improving all the time. 

Where the film War Games portrayed 
teenage hacker (Matthew Broderic 
Sneakers a decade later shows a group 
grown-up hackers strutimg their st 
Although tinea kerti was less than tec 
cally correct in its approach to portray 
hackers, it shows where the 
future lies.

V ideographv has always played a 
major note m the Amiga market 
but .since the camcorder explosion 
.f ~e last few years the floodgates, have 
■6i \k opened on countless videographic 
s : -ons, From simple tltlers to high-end 
-£tng sytfcms, 

However no matter what new gadgelry 
. pears, the heart of any DTV setup wi 
, f» jvs be a genlock. Over the last year the 
. nlock market has been pretty quiet. 
~i *fVL'r r iJiLs month ill that's wt to change 
Mil two brand new units in the same issue. 

in this review the spot ligh t falls tm a big 
• ’ -ther for the Mini Gen genlock which 
it pea red in last month's Shop Window, 
* Med MiniGen Professional, this latest 
i Jeavour from Lola Electronics is 
'-signed fro offer n challenge in the 
c w mid range - an area currartly 
: minated by the RocCen Plus, 

To help stake its claim, MiniGen 
ro is set to retail for |usl £111 more 
an its RocGert counterpart. For I his 
: Jitional investment you gel quite a few 
- nncmenth, the rmsst notable being a built- 
■ tader, ais opposed to the knob control 
— .Hovod by the RocGcn. 
to fact it's fairly obvious after a brief lour 
MiniGen Pro that the designers have had 
dose look at the expensive end of the map 
i l‘ t and have attempted So emulate at least 
ftte of the more desirable features. 

Chi the rear of the unit awaits a familiar 
array of composite and KGB D-ring porta. 

■ - you'd expect - considering the price - &- 
■ HS isn't on the agenda. However for a 
fc mposite VI IS source the MiniGen Pro is 
aeal, with both in and oleI hsgn.iis conneCt- 
"g up via pro-style composite video BNC 





Alongside these sit the 23-pin RGB com- 
peter Video In and ite associated 3?GE pnss- 
i rough - an option which allows the 
riginal computer output to be passed to 
our monitor untouched, while the outgoi- 
ng video signal displays the chosen oornbi- 
liition of computer graphics rind video.

refit as Lola s MiniGen 
turns professional 


Thanks to the pase-through option - also 
available on the RocGen - you're free to 
continue setting-up and ad jusl i ng even dur- 
ing mix-down as the Amiga display 
remains constant. 

Unfortunately however, the MiniGen 
Pm isn't "without its faults - especially in 


relation to AG A machines. Although the 
RGB computer output can be fed into the 
genlock via a supplied 23-pin connection, 
die pass-through signal cannot be used in 
conjunction with a hi-ies VGA/multisync 
monitor. 

While a physical connection between the 
23-pin pass-ih rough uml 1 S-pcn monitor 
cable can be made via Com modores' moni- 
tor adaptor, tlie signal simply will not sync 
regardless of the screen mode.

the orightai 
MfafGen 


As a result, pass-through monitoring on 
AtA machines will require a medium res 
monitor such as the Philips CMBB33-1I or 
perhaps a Commodore 1 0H4S. If neither of 
the above are available the only option left 
is to invest in another Lola product, namely 
their LAI TV adaptor, with the assistance 
of ivhich even a humble FV could he 
pressed Into service as a pseudo-monitor 
With ihe exception of the various I/O 
ports and nt course the solitary fader, the 
only other notable elements are the three 
buttons on Ihe front of the control panel - 


each of which toggle the output of the 
MinK ii k i\ Pro hehvwTi one of three keying 
states 

Following in the t UHSfre genbeking tradi- 
Hon, the three basic modes start with a 
fader-con trolled dissolve from video to 
computer graphics, or visa versa. Next 
comes the most famous effect of them all, 
with colour ot being replaced entirely by 
the incoming video creating the illusion of 
computer graphics floating above incoming 
video. 

Last and no doubt least comes a basic 
pass-through option which simply sends a 
clean video signal direct to the tar- 
get recorder, 

Aside from the various connec- 
tions and controls, the oniy other 
thing worth mentioning is the rather 
strange orientation of the D-ring con- 
nections, each of which is upside-down - 
something which could cause no end of 
fun in a dimly-lit editing suite, 

As for the actual keying quality, the 
MiniGen Pro is probably best described as 
average. Both the fader control and the 
transition between keying states have been 
well implemented with the output leaping 
between modes and sliding between mix 
levels very smoothly, 

Al as the actual keying quality isn't 
quite as impressive, Although much 
improved In relation to the MiniGen, the 
overal output in certainly no better than 
that of the RocGen. As a consequence, the 
choice between the two units is a rather 
tricky ore. 

On one hand yon have the extra keying 
rmide offered by the RocGcn, while the 
MinjGen Pro counters with a built-in fader. 
Given the choice I'd probably opt for the 
MiniGen simply because the better fad i ng 
it hi tn pI wtHild, for me at least, outweigh the 
need for an invert option.

ical keypad, Running along the toy are a 
series of keys which read FI up to F10; 
these are called function ktws. I hey are 
used in many programs ranging from 
business to games titles. 

By pressing on them, they will perform

provided with the hardware, 

On turning the computer round 
to look at the back, don't panic - it r s 
not as had as it looks. To start with 
you only need three of the ports 
present: The mouse socket situ- 
ated on the far left; the aerial 
hole,, labelled RF Modulator; 
and finally, the power socket itself - the 
furthest to the right, t ake out the plugged 
power adaptor and look at the end with 
the five-pin plug which refers to the num- 
ber of pins that it has (like a normal 
household three-pin plug), 

You'll see the word TOP marked on it 
which in the way up the lead should be 
when slotted into the computer, Slip it 
into the appropriate socket 
and stick the three-pin plug 
into a power point, but don't 
turn the adaptor on yet. 
Fetch the aerial lead and 
slide that into the FT modu- 
lator and the other end into 
the telly, 

Finally, get the mouse out 
and fit it into the mouse 
port. Turn on the power 
adaptor and flick the televi- 
sion on. Meet A channel that 
you don't need and tune it 
in to the computer's fre- 
l| ueney. 

After a while, the com*

This is the Amiga's subtle way of telling 
you |n put a floppy disk in the drive 
before st can do anyth ing. 

From here, a gamt- can be loaded auto- 
matically but make sure that you have a 
|oy stick (it plugs in next to the mouse). 

For people who want to Ioann as much 
as possible about the basic use of the 
machine, 1 recommend grabbing 
Workbench 3,0 from the selection of utili- 
ties disks included and slipping that into 
the drive, labelled side up and with the

that lets me set it to new screen /standard

hope is a simple problem. 3 have several 
programs that do not tike my Power

plus dock). 

If I could place Workbench's

done? U so, how? Please again assume that 
I know nothing and lead rno through step

some of your 3.1 -shy C over Disks. 
According to thv docu mentation, Helokkk 
3.3 will also work with tht 1 AMO Plus and 
AbOO though 1 don't know if this is so. 
What it does bring in backwards compati- 
bility to the A 121X1- 

I had the de-archiving problem with 
your CaMgafi C over Disk, so did a boot 
with Relokick, put in Caligari and success- 
fully de-archived from there. 

If you are still with me, pleats allow me 
to state tlrul Relokick. is slightly awkward 
for the fir si time user. When l first used it 3 
thought l had a hugged disk, so do the 
following: 

1, Boot your machine with the Rein kick 


2. The title screen will appear. After a 
short time the screen will go blank. Be 


patient - in a while the title screen will 
appear again. When this happens 
remove the Relokick disk from the disk 
drive and then warm boot 
(Ctrl / Amiga /Am iga ). You shou Id now 
be looking at a Workbench ] .3 screen. 

3. Put the disk to be de-archived into 
external drive and proceed as nnrmaL 

4. When the de-are hiving is done remove 

the disks and switch off vour machine 

■ 

to get rid of Workbench 13 
3. You should now be able to load your 
.Il'-.i ivh: v -. '.I disk from your normal 
Workbench. 

I hope the above is of help to those hav- 
ing problems. I stress that I have not tried 
it on any other computer but my own but 
E don't see why it should not work for all 
of your render having de-archiving prob- 


lems and unlike myself going bald in tl ■

F Many thanks lof an excellent magazine and 
some equally excellent CoverDisk programs - 
the reason I slanted buying AQ 
Some comments Icllow thai other readers mighs be 
interested in, plus an enquiry lo bool (hah hah). Reading 
your September issu^ your ACAS pages commented that 
soma readers have had problems with li-mite-d capacity 
using Ihe inlotile program. 

I suffered equally: Even alter changing the memory set- 
tings I could only produce a 50-record database 
Den'l ask me how I remedied this, but somehow 
the situation righted itself on rebooting - 
my 250+ album collection with associated info 
fits easily onto the unarchived disk alongside the 
program. 

I did have dearchiving problems initially - the 
machine refusing lo accepl my blank disk as 
being wrste-enabled, until I bunged the disk-validator 
and replaced i! with another one. Congratulations, 
Ihough. on the choice ol Iwo ace proQrarns on 


one disk. Could you perhaps help with the Following? I 
read with sympathy the !ett$r from V Notion who seemed 
to be having problems running Fountain on his AfrOQ. I 
have an identical problem, but your solution does ncl 
help. 

The actual bugbear lies in Ihe Fact that for some reason 
the disklont.lib supplied is v3BJ6 {fettling with c/version). 
Why? - everything else seems lo be v37 (except 
Workbench!). 

It doesn't matter how mucti I assign or cd< it's still 
only v36.66 - will l have lo huy a PD Workbench 
2.x gr 3.x to upgrade? Is there an easier path to scalable 
fonts? 

Thanks, by the way, tor Bars & Pipes, Triktrah and 
Poing. Keep up the good work. Hows about Word worth 
1.1 complete, or a non-saving demo of Wordworth2, Final 
Copy 2, Pro Page 4, Pages iream or Pagesulter? With fol- 
low on support in subsequent issues lo keep me buying .. 
please, grovei. ele.

T hings I hat people get hung up 
about when they start really get- 
ting into their computer are hard 
disks,, faster processors and of course mem- 
ory . The lack of any of these items in a sort of 
notional wall you slap into when you start 
poshing the boundaries of what your 
machine can do. 

Ray- tracing, 24-bit graphics, dLrect-to- 
dLsk recording- all vrrv nice ideas, but in 
order to attain these dmy heights you must 
lay some cash on the table and Improve 
your machine, and that's for definite, 

Rut once you take that bold step, you 
realise it J s not quite as simple as slapping 
your dosh on the counter and saying 'Td 
like a yard and a half of memory, mate''' like 
you would in any other shop. 

Buying memory is not sit much like buy- 
ing doth as buying a stereo. How much do 
you need? How reliable is the circuitry? 
How much can I gel for my money? 

And before you know it r it's another one 
of lluxse minefields with you in the middle 
of it, and damn it if you didn't leave lhat 
pocket mine-sweeper at hero In your other 
pants. 

Buying brain for your Amiga is actually 
very simple, but you have to peer through 
the marketing speak to gel to the basic 
things you need to know, People are always 
talking about the speed of the memory 
chips, SIMMs, ZIPs, PCMC I A cards, and 
nobody ever explains what it's aM about I o 


Phil South reveals the uses for - and 
routes to - a larger quotient of 
RAM chips for your Amiga 


cover Ihe real basics, memory is like 
workspace in your computer, llhe more you 
have, the more stuff you can load and run in 
your machine. In (he Amiga it's a tiny piece 
more complex, in that you have essentially 
two types of memory: fast and chip. 

Chip memory is usually the amount of 
memory you get in your Amiga when you 
buy it. Originally the Amiga only had 256k, 
but of cour* j modem Amiga* ship with up 
to 2Mb of chip. 

The significance of chip RAM is that it is. 
the area of memory by the main processor 
and Amiga's custom chips, or graphics co- 
processor. 

On newer Amiga* with Workbench 2 or 
X this is also called graphics memory and 




the size of this is shown at the top of your 
screen in bytes. 

Ehis RAM is shared which means some- 
times die main 60000 for better) is using it, 
and other times the custom chips like Agnes, 
Denise or Paula are using it. Most of the. 
time this sharing is not apparent to the 
naked eye for anything else) until you gH a 
real graphics payload into your memory 1 . 

Then, because the custom chips are bog- 
ging the graphics memory r the main proces- 
sor can/t get at much memory, bo 
everything starts to slow down at this point, 
as the 60000 waits for the odd slice of contin- 
uous RAM to work with. 

If chip memory is all you have in your 
machine then you problems are double 
because all your programs and sound and 
everything else is crowded into memory too. 
Ihe pnJv solution is to buy more fast mem- 
orv P as this is usable only by tho main pro- 
cessor, and so it doesn't have to compete for 
cycles with the custom chips. 

You can expand chip memory with 
something like DKG'S excellent MegaChip 
2000/ 50CX although for the most part this is 
an expensive luxury for real graphics heads

only. Expansion memory, ur fast memory, o 
anv additional RAM you bdl onto your svs- 

r a v 

tom other titan the base memory the machine 

came with. 

This is useful as not only does it provide 
the graphics chips with more leg room in then 
precious chip RAM area of memory, hut it 
also allows you to load bigger programs, and 
not only that but more memory hungry pro- 
grams t(K 1 . 

Getting more RAM into your computer i> 
easy once you made the choice. Then- are a 
fairly limited number of ways you can physi- 
cally attach RAM to the system and have it 
work. Chief among these for your AblKl or 
500 Phis user as the trapdoor underneath 
you r machine or the expansion slot under the 
cover at the left cheekplate of the machine 
Both these orifices have covers you remove to 
engage the board with (he new memory on it 

EXPANSION 

In the trapdoor you can simply up the 
level of your memory using the A 50] mem- 
ory expander, or you can even insert a full 
8Mb. The expansion slot enables you to ettfvT 
slap on a full 8Mb or add it through the use os 
expansion devices -uch as the A 590 ur A57t 
drives. 

Both these devices allow 2Mb of fast mem- 
ory to be added to the system as wet! as the 
hard or CD-ROM drive. The key question 
here is: When you buy any device for the 
expansion slut, is there a through port? Thh 
means: Is there another port on ihe side of the 
RAM expansion it to allow you to fit more 
devices? Some 1 devices terminate the link and 
don't allow more expansion. 

For 1500/ 2000/ 3000/40W there is the 
good old Zorro slot. This is the standard 
expansion slot in all big box Amiga*, am: 
usually these are attached hi the motherboard 
inside the machine, although on the 300 0 and 
4JHO they arc on a daughter board sticking up 
at right angles. 

A RAM card can be stuck in any available 
skit, although you may have to alter a jumper 
un the board to teU the computer how much 
RAM you have installed. 

Some hard drives and accelerators have 
RAM cm them, although like as nut this is 32- 
bit rather than the standard 16-bii RAM. For 
most normal Amiga* the regular lb-bii RAM 
is easily fast enough for your needs, 

Once you up the speed of the processor 








MEMORY 



you would do belter to have some 32-bii 
R AM as well, dimply because the faster pro- 
cessor would be held bade by not being able 
to access memory as fast as it could. Divides 
like this fit in the processor slot so if you 
already have some fast RAM fitted in a 
memory caret you can k mp that in there, 
Hnsving g tester processor also means the 
upper limit of how much RAM you can 
hove is expanded, On a normal system 
you're 1 looking at 0Mb being iJie upper limit, 
whereas -a A&G30 can address up k* 64Mb 
On all machines yon can boost ihe 
amount of chip RAM with a device like the 
MegaChip 2003/500, This inserts into the 
socket occupied by the Agnes chip. You 
have to take it out first of course and it's not 
a game for the fa ini hearted, believe me. 

A new avenue of expansion has emerged 
recently with ihe advent of the PCMCIA or 
card slot in the AGGG/A12U0. PCMCIA 
stands for Personal Computer Memory 
Card International Association, and this is 
the name of the body which developed and 
supports Hus standard. 

It was originally made for use with lap- 
tops and electronic musical instrument^ Lull 
smee the Amiga s were fitted with a PCM- 
CIA interface, it now becomes possible to 
use PCMG A memory cards, 

This iift-pin slot isn't just a RAM card siol, 
as it is a fully functioning interface to the 
tomputer, capable of supporting a number 
ot peripherals. But it's primary use will be to 
expand the RAM of your machine, or as a 
nomrs you can even forma! the card as a 
disk. A sort of removable BAM drive with 



its own battery backup" Obviously jhe best 
advice is to just buy as much RAM as you 
can afford and leave it at that. Bevond that, 
you are actually fairly limited in the kinds of 
! things you can buy for each machine. 

Memory cards for the A 503 an? all much 
Alike, and realty you can just go out and got 
the first one which matches your price 
range, Obviously the best configuration Lb 
SMb of memory and a hand drive, but who 
am ] to stretch you budget? 

The is still a good deal, but there are 
a number of expansion port options from 
CAT which break the memory barrier with' 
out breaking the bank. In the trapdoor you 
can get options from Power Computings 
Silka Shop and Ashcnm which are all reli- 
able, cheap and easy to fit. 

There are also some wackier options like 
the Blizzard Board from Micro PACE which 
adds 8 Mb of memory along with a faster 
6BG(3l) style chip. This to installed into the 
actual 68000 chip picket by first pulling your 
68000 out and inserting this board. These 
units are tor people with a few more quid to 
bum and no fear of trashing their Amiga 


when they putt out the hfWKlO. 

On the A2000 your options are also mani- 
fold. You could simply poke a MiCrobotics 
8 Up board in and rack up BMb of Ih-bit 
memory. You could use a combo card of 
some kind to add a SCSI hard drive con- 
troller which also has a sack of memory on 
it. Or you could go the whole I vug, and get 
something like the GYP G- Force 030 card 
with 32-bit memory and an {#030 chip all 
fs*r a meagre £399, 

The A3G0G Is a little more dccoTrumidat- 
tng, as you can actually insert your memory 
chips right there onto the motherboard, up 
to t SM h nd ng 4megabit SI MMs, 

You can of course add more it you stick a 
memory card into cue of the Zfuro slots, but 
you have far fewer to play with in an A3000, 
so this isn't perhaps the best option. 

The A 1200 and A600 obviously have thei r 
PCMCIA cards, but for the A 60(3 there are 
variations or the trapdoor units for the A5O0 
specially made for the machine. These are 
made by the same firms - Power, Silica and 
Ashcom - who make the A5GG units, and 
run out at simitar prices of £20 to Ettl 

The Al 2(1(1 has a lot more exciting 
options, with of course accelerator boards 
and 32-bit memory being top of the wish list.

VIDEO ■ 


F or regular AC readers, the name 
Hama may already be a familiar 
one, especially if your primary 
computing pastime involves video, Hama 
have a lung and iUushious history when it 
comes to videography involving the Amiga 
which they no doubt hope to maintain with 
thei r in test release. 

Like many German companies, Hama 
Lire synonymous with quality. 
Unfortunately the aforesaid attribute is 
tn variably reflected in the price, which in 
the past has made I lama hardware almost 
exclusively the domain of pro .md semi -pm 
i, ideogtaphers- 

Hbwever., in somelhirvg of a break from 
tradition the company have now launched 
the new 2 L J2 genlock which offers a combi- 
nation of compromise and quality which 
targeted squarely Lit the videographic mid- 
dle ground. 

Even at the 2^2 still hovers danger- 
ously close to if not above - the upper 
limit of the average home budget. 
However for this you do gel both compos- 
ite and £A P H$, Am jga colour control, hard- 
ware fading and four keying to mints. As 



you car see, the new 292 is quite a looker. 
Lin Lho back of the unit awaits a single 
KGB 23 pin- video-in which is Liken 
directly from the Amiga via a supplied 
liable- 

Moving from back lo from the control 
panel is dominated by twin Scart ports 
which handle all the Hama's video input 
and output, between these sits the 
Composite / S-VJ ES switcher white to the 
:ii;hl l 1 waits another switch whit h toggles 
between an A3000 and Amiga's that don't 
proi’idea built- in flicker fixer. 

Aside from the aforementioned I/Os 
and mode switches, the only other ele- 
ments are a pop-up fuse alongside a 
rocker switch for the optional power 
supply. 

THROTTLE 

Towards the from of the unit a single 
snltle-stvle tader the must striking 
feature f offering L i smooth and well 
dampened method of moving between 
r>bck and Live chosen keying mode 
Al ting side three R C I B colour control 
-nobs are used lo control the incoming 
\miga graphics. Colour saturation can he 
real problem with excessive levels caus- 
ing serious blending as the Amiga colour 
ppears to seep into the surrounding 
v kieo. 

lo avoid this you can always ensure 
■at the colours within the Amiga ele- 
vnt of the image are at or bdow 12 or 
-2 in the Amiga's colour register. 

However, thanks to the Hama's bu ll 
- Colour control no such precautions are 
quired as I he knobs provide complete 
■nTml over each component in the RGB 


Completely in control 

Along the Iront of the urirt are the four key control buttons. Working from left to nght. itie 
collection opens with a basic Amiga pm-lhrough mode which simply sends the Amiga sig- 
nal untouched to the output video. 

Next up comes the Video button which serves exactly the same purpose but sends a 
clean video signal to the output recorder/monitor as opposed lo Ihe Amiga signal. 

Next up comes Ihe koy dr invert button which as the name suggests makes odour zero 
solid while the rest of the palette becomes iransparent - thereby producing a keyhole 
effect with ihe video appearing through gasps in a colour ^ero foreground. 

Last bul iwt least comes Hie mis option - otherwise known as overlay. This is by far the 
most Famous and useful mode of them, all with the Amiga display appearing above the 
incoming video as colour zero is removed iron the equation. 


signal- A truly excellent feature which all 
■serious genlocks should offer... 

With the glamorous styling,. S-VHH 
support, hardware fading and four keying 
modes, success wOrus assured fur the 2^2. 

Unfortunately however, although impres- 
sive on paper in reality the new Hama 
isn't all it cou Id be. 

Whirling from the rear the most damn- 
ing omission is. the lack of an RGB pass- 
through. Apart from bargain basement 
genlocks the a fore mentioned feature has 
become widely regarded L is an essential 
element of any self-respecting gents* k. 

NIGHTMARE 

Without a pass-through it s impossible 
to set up new Amiga elements during pro- 
duction, As a result using different pro- 
grams would be a nightmare while even 
simple page transitions using programs 
like 5cala would be hit and miss at best. 

Even worse than the hick of a pjiss- 
Lh rough Is the very linufced fader control . 
w Util ike the vast nirijofity of genlocks, the 
fader simply transforms the output from 
black to ihe desired eJtect. 


In other words, there's no wax- to fade 
between, the video and Amiga signal. So 
il's impossible to slowly fade up the over- 
laid Amiga graphics over a live video sag- 
nal - arguably the most usable and 
attractive gen Locking effect of them all 
In short, flexibility is a real problem, but 
if you simply want to use a single mode 
throughout your production or alterna- 
tively don't mind being forced lo hide Edo 
and from a solid black there's no problem 
- personally rd find it far too restricting. 


Lastly comes the 292 ‘s Scan connections. 

Unforhjnatelv .the unit doesn't come with 
■ 

any connectors apart from the ..iforemein- 
tioned 2Tpin RGB cable. As a result you're 
forced into further expenditure on addi- 
tional non-standard connectors, not to 
mention a Scar Loom pa tlble VCR, 

in short, the 1 Hama is by no means as big 
a bargain as it may firs! appear, although 
to be fair the actual keying rind image qua I- 
it\ is excellent in both composite and 

s-vhs. 



I i you need high quality S*VH5 output 
but don't necessarily require flcxibLe con- 
trol it's .-] good investment. However if you 
don't fit perfectly into this particular niche 
in ihe market it's Well worth shopping 
around or saving up for the 
higher spec I lama unit,

the iynchpin of the dance scene and

absent from the Jurassic, big names

Combine this purists love of the 
music with the lad thal computers, 
sequencers, electronics, Midi and 
digital recording fill have their pari 
to play in the making of virtually all 
dance music, and t think we can 
finally explain why so many 
so-galled “rave’ 1 demos come my

Trouble is, most are pap. It's no

Spectrum 
Emulator vl.7 

Valty PD 

Nut as the title might suggest simply one 
version of this program, but a number, M 
configured to run correctly on any Amiga 
ft™ a bug-standard 1,2 A500 to an A40QQ 
6004ft 

This is the kind or PD I realty like. I 
mean, who would release a Spectrum emu- 
lator commercially? No-one. but who r d 
pay a couple of quid to re-live their old 
times on {heir Amiga? Lots of people, me 
included. 

On selecting and loading the correct ver- 
sion for your Amiga, all that's left is to sir 
back and watch the black border turn white 
and then display, tn that much cherished 
calculator-style font the *© 1982 Sinclair 
Research Ltd" message. 

It's all there and all the wme; The flash- 
ing K for keyword, the one- touch com- 
mands (although these are almost 
impossible to use on an Amiga keyboard - 
maybe the inclusion of a file to prinL out 
showing where all the words are would 
help?) - even the error messages are 
identical. 

Which isn't too Surprising really, as the 
writer, who's written the whole thing in 
assembly language, has duplicated the 
complete Spectrum ROhl inside the 
Amiga’s memory lo simulate the idk ver- 
sion to perfection. 

The most interesting and potentially 
useful thing about this emulator is that, if 
you have a sound sampler plugged into 
your parallel prut which can sample fit 
20kHz or aboye, it quite possible to 
attach a tape recorder to if and load 
Spectrum games in from cassette. 

Ye^ that's right, all the oldies can be 
Loaded and run (well, most of them any- 
way), Looks Like it's up into the loft to dig 
out that old portable cassette player and 
bag of dusty games for a bit of a reunion, 
don't you think?

Join the 
CLUBBS 

it's not alien- that an original concept lulls 
onto my desk In a brown envelope, but 
that's whal happened this month, in the 
fom of some information, a convincing 
statistics sheet and a disk entitled 
CLUBBS. 

Ever wondered what H must be like lo 
be a comms user? To have your computer 
linked in to the outside world, and to be 
able to "speak' by receiving and sending 
electronic data to anyone wilh similar 
equipment and ideas? 

Comms makes ail of this possible - 
comma freaks spend 1 hours (and pounds) 
dialling bullelin boards, teavimg messages 
in topic areas, receiving any messages 
meant For lhem p and generally keeping in 
touch with debates and in Formation on 
fhmgs as diverse as world politics and 
dreams (a quick look through Ihe list of 
conferences available on possibly Britain’s 
biggest bulletin board, CIX, conlirms the 
diversity of inferesl covered). 

However, good, fast modems are not 
cheap, and if is very, very likely lhat you'll 
end up running up a pretty horrendous 
phone bill, which can take the glamour out 
of Ihe whole thing rather quickly, 

CLUBBS aims lo change all of this. A 
system designed ta duplicate the above 
scenario tor those without modems dr sec* 
ond mongages, it is described as a “simu- 
lated computer network, of varying ideas, 
opinions and specialised information*, 
updated and despatched monthly to 

subscribers. 

It works like this. You receive, each 
month, a disk containing ihe latest mas- 
sages from all of Ihe other subscribers, 
which will include answers lo your last 
contributions alongside other messages 
questions and statements, all divided into 
folders, just like real BBSs with their con- 
ference areas 

Fndeed, as the ‘feel" of a bulletin board 
is governed more by the software you 
choose to use on your machine than any 
individual board, this system feels some- 
what like you're simply using a proprietary 
piece of comms software on a real BBS! 

You send In your replies in Ihe Form of 
text messaged which are then included 
on the following disk. And as ihe system is 
open to PC users too, you can be guaran- 
teed a large and varied selection of sub- 
scribers from ail over the counlry and, 
hopefully, the world. 

This is a refreshing idea, and judging 
by the response CLUBBS have had 
already, looks set to become a storming 
success. What I want lo know is; What will 
Ihey do when it expands to such a poinl 
where they'll be mailing you dozens of 
disks each month r > I suspect well soon 
see!

Lemmingsbench 

Pi 24, MBS 

This is by lar the most original animation this monih, 
which is not to say ii s outstanding in any way, fust lliat 
what it does it does well, and ii doesn't include polygons 
bouncing off Hie side nl the screen whiii doing 17 more 
in credible things, all to the I one ol some sexed-up 
teenager's rumblings across the bottom of Hie screen. 

Of course, t could bo being more than a trifle cynical, 
but when you sea Lemmingsbench and chuckle at the 




gentle humour of it all. vector madness seems all but a 
distant fading bad dream... 

The screen is a typical Workbench jetty, except it has 
an «con on the desktop, which just happens to look 
remarkably similar to the one which the Lemming* jump 
out of In the game of the same name, and an open win- 
dow containing another icon - home. 

Our I'ttle chums appear Horn the first icon, only to splat 
themselves in their tall. However, Mr Pilot Lemming is 
already building a bridge to save them, and this is a start 
ot a journey which will take our pack of intrepid and fear- 
less explorers to ifte bottom left ol the "Workbench", up to 


the side of the window, through the roof, along Hie click 
bar and safely into the home icon. 

This has all the graphics and style ot the real thing , 
except all you do is sit back and watch our normally clue- 
Suss friends having a goad go at the whole she-bang 
themselves. 

IMow what would be good would be a game whereby 
the lemmings do their own thing... until you interfere. Then 
you cautd spend you time deliberately hindering a set ol 
creatures determined to make their way to safety. Anyone 
feel up to it?

commercial houst-s seem highly slow in 


► 

Assassins series has carried on where 
others have failed nut least because of the 
exwllertt presentabonH of their product*. 

On loading, vou are invariably faced 
with a slick, function key-activated 
menu, and are almost guaranteed that at 
least one of the gamo will be well worth 
your time and effort. 

However^ A 1 200 owners who've 
upgraded from a Workbench 2.0 nr ear- 
lier machine may well have been di^ap- 
pointed to find that - along with many 
commercial releases - the Assii*sins 
games do not work on their machines or 
at least some of them. 

This is where A120O Fix comes in. 
Containing mrt one but a plethora ot pro- 
gram* designed to get i nearly) a l! of the 
Assassins releases working, this is essen- 
tia] for anybody with more that a few of 
their disks and an A 1 2110. 

It comes with comprehensive on-disk 
documentation, a very colourful (as 
wove come to expect) Workbench, and 


doing supporting their product s user* 
after the p ant of purchase.

CLR CLU14 

It's a while since I’ ve reviewed a PD 
wordpruccswr, basically because r with a 
few exceptions, if you've seen one,, you've 
seen them all - cut-down version* of com- 


mercial offerings carrying some but not 
all of the functions available for a little 
more of your hard-earned cash. 

However, 3 feel that this new wordpro- 
cessnr deserve* a mention, if only because 
it is a CLR program, which means even 
though it costs a little more than usual 
E'D r you can be sure of something special, 
and that it is just that - something special. 

Should you wish to get you r hand on a 
word processor which duplicates nearly 
all of the functions you're most likely to 
find on a commercial offering., then this is 
definitely the one for you. 

You can load, save and merge (nice) 
Ascii and the program s proprietary tor- 
mat, and delete file* m disk (good for fry- 
ing to to a full floppy); there's full 
Find and Replace, including the ability to 
count the number of occurrences of a 
word; the Cursor Go lo not only lets you 
go In the start or end or a page, but also to 
a percentage - if you know the pa ssage 
you're 3 to is about two-third* of the way 
through your tux I, 67% should do the 
trick here, for instance. 

There are to help you with your 
actua l text creation, too. Want to insert the 
current date or time? The program will 
add it for you. Want hi put ten of your 


most-used phrase* (the cheque's in the 
post being a fave) scane where where they 
are easily accessible? The function 
key* can be assigned to handle the lot of 
them. 

As well as the program you get a 
guide, a summary, a tutorial a liard disk 
install - in short, practically everything 
you could pay £30-£50 or much more for 
It can even use the Amiga's speech facili- 
ties to read your text to you - although 
this option is not recommended. 

AH in all, this is one of the be*t PD 
(well, nearly f J D) wordproces*or* on the 
market, and would be ideal if you have a 
printer with self-assignable fonts (font 
handling i L - not Powertext's strong point i 
t K'erall., a great value program.

this hand scanner has tour modes ot 
operation: TextflJne Art, Dithered Colour, 
Greyscale, Colour and Supar Colour All ot 
these modes can scan up to a resolution ot 
403dipi with (he exception of the later two 
which have a maximum resolution ol 
200dpi. 

There is also a switch to set (he resolu- 
tion of the scanner to between a quarter 
and one times the maximum possible lor 
the current mode. 

As an optional extra Ihe Migraph OCR 
Jr software that is bundled with the 
M, graph OCR mono scanner is available. 
The standard scanning soltware is very 
basic and allows you to do no more than 
digitise in colour, select the display mode 
and save your pictures, in order to get the 
most out of this scanner an image manipu- 
lation program will also be required.

Amiga Computing 




Getting real life photographs and drawings from paper onto 
your computer screen need not be difficult or expensive. 
Colin Yarnall opens up the scanning market 


T he mos-l obvious us£ for 3 scsinngr is. to digiti&& picii-ir&s 
lor use in desktop publishing However, scarfed 
images can be employed as texture wraps and 

backdrops in ray-lcaoed pictures and aiwnahons 

They can even he used as the basis lor sprites m home btev, 
computet games but a growing use takes the form ol pictorial 

databases 

Mosl Amiga databases are now able lo store images 
text which is an ideal way of camming your photos so ihat you 
can easily find a negative 

Any factual mtormal«on thaf you require can be associated with 


a picture whether it is a family history database pop star portfolio 
or Top Tfiimp^siyle card index 

Theta are iwo lypes of scanner: mono antf colour A ^ with it\e- 
visrons, colour is more expensive than black ana wh to because ol 
more complex hardware Apart from thecosl ol a scanner, boar in 
mind lhal you may also need some extra RAM in otde^ to use the 
hardware So its full capability 

Desktop publishing will need a tosa* ol seven or eight 
'Megabytes lor logout work and tour or five for mono li possible 
to digitise images with less memory hut li will become fiusirating 
and unbomfodable. 


AlphaScan 



four different packages are available in the 
AlphaScan range of mono scanners. Each one 
contains the same 400dpi hardware but i> 
bundled with a different selection of 
software. 

The basic AlphaScan costs and Is sup- 
plied with Scan £: Save software': AlphaScan 
] 'Ills is £129.95 and comes with Touch-Up; 

AlphaScan OCR costs £139 and is supplied 
with Scan & Save and OCR, and AlphaScaii 
OCR bins, at 069, is supplied with Touch- 
Up and OCR. All models haw Merge-It soft- 
wan' as standard. 

Mergt-It is included in each package and 
allows two partial scans of a large image to be joined together. The 
program displays an edge strip of each image, allowing them to be 
mowd around and overlaid, saving the resulting image directly to 


While it is certainly a useful utility, it is possible lo produce an 
image- that is so large tiut it would require more' memory than you 


have to display it. This is particula rly annoying because there is no 
warning that an attempt to generate an oversifted image is being 

made, 

Both Scan & Save and Touch -Up contain the scanning routines 
and are essentially the same program. The key difference is that 
the integral paint package and mosl of the image manipulation 
tool* have been disabled in Scan & Save. However, dto should be 
no great loss to users with access to a standard paint package 


The scanning routine performs its fe^ well but is let down by Wx 
image size gadget which does not work properly. This usually 
causes the software to produce images of the wrong size whid 

wastes a lot of hme. 

The scanner has a setting for text scanning which produces i 
closer facsimile of documents than the other image settings, The* 
images can then be processed by the special OCR software whir*| 
has two modes of operation. 

In manna] mode, the program makes a best guess at unrecogius- 
able characters and displays 







The other differ- 
ence is that Touch- 
Up is Workbench 3 
compatible while 
Scan & Save is not. 
Clearly, if YOU own 
an A 1 200 or are 
thinking of getting 
Line you should 
make sure that you 
buy a package that 
includes Touch-Up. 


(hem together with the origi- 
nal portion of the scan. 1 he 
user may then enter the cor- 
rect characters or confirm 
that the program's best 
guess was right. 

In automatic mode, the 
opportunity to correct the 
program's interpretation is 
left until the whole docu- 
ment has been processed 
and stored as an Ascii file. 

It may then he loaded into 
ci word processor and 
further scanned using a spelli

Pyramid Mono 
hand scanner 


As with the other mono scan- 
ners in this article, tht 1 
Pyramid model tan scEin at 
resolutions of 100, 200, 34)0 
and 400dpi It also has thi? 
Usual three modes for pho- 
tographs and tine for text, 

The soffware performs the 
basic function of scanning 
and saving and that's about 
Lilt il Inis been designed to 
do. however it is easy to use 

j_nd appears to be well written. 

As with the Pandaol scanner there is no software support for 
ptkal character recognition. Apart from the obvious uhv Lit the text 
kiltie for digitising the written word it can also be il^ for digitis- 
ing line art so it is not as useless as u might ritsi appear, 

Whml really stands out about the hardwnre is that the scanner 
interface has an integral switch that allows a printer be cumnectod 
' 1 vour system at the same tirin' as the scanner. This saves on both 



cable swapping and time 
wasted powering down to 
change the connections. 
Ultimately it will save 
wear and tear on the parallel 
port for users who own both L i 
printer and scanner.

Power Colour Scanner 


! this product looks vaguely familiar it's 
probably because it consisis of the same 
scanning hardware ag the Migraph 
CcfarSurst but is badged differently and in 
another colour. However, unlike its rival, 
ihe Power model does not plug inte Ihe 
parallel (primer) interface. 

Instead A5D0 and A50G Plus users 
have to plug the interface unit into ihe side 
of Iheir machine. Hand drive owners and 
jserg of other A500 side expansions will 
be pleased to hear lhat Ihere is a pass- 
Ihrough interface so that they can use their 
exiling peripherals concurrently, 

With the exception of Ihe A8QG and 


A 1200, which are incompatible with the 
Power scanner, the interlace unit fils into a 
Zdrra slol oti other machines The suppled 
software is more comprehensive than that 
ol its rival and can save in resolutions of up 
to 24-bit.

The Sharp JX 1 00 is a flatbed colour scan- 
ner which as capable of digilising images 
up lo a maximum ol TOG by ibDmm. All 
lhal is required is to place il on top of a 
picture and align it wrth the viewing 
window. 

Three passes of ihe scanning window 
are made - one lor each ol the primary 
colours lhal define each pixel The passes 
and are automatic once (he process has 
been slarted. 

Because the scanning is automated il 
leads lo mong accurate digitising by elimi- 
nating the possibility of the head wobble 
which can occur with hand held scanners. 

Apart from being: able to digitise in its 
highest resolution o! 18-bit colour it can 
also be used in three-bit, six-bit and mono. 
The results are lar superior to those 
achievable with hand scanner, yet thg 
price does nol put rt oul ol reach ol the 
home computer market. 

Photographs are just Ihe right size lor 
Ihe scanning window but there are times 
when a smaller area is lo be digFtised. The 
software permits the size ol image to be 
defined hurt does nol appear to handle pic- 
tures that are larger than the scan window. 

Brightness is controlled by the program, 
rather than via hardware* as is the colour 
balance. Once ihe onworic has been set 
up. a single pass mono preview scan can 
be made which will save time when the 
final colour scan musl be aligned 
accurately. 

Net only can the software handle both 
portrait or landscape and images with 
user-defined sfre reduction, but il also has 
no less than five types of dither to further 
enhance the linal output

The Panda ai hand scanner is exactly the same 
device the Alphastan but has a different 
badge. As with its twin, there are three photo 
settings, one text, a density control from 100 to 
400dpi and a contrast wheel. The software, 
however, is distinctly different to that of the 
AfphaScan, 

It consists of a single program which is eas- 
ier to use but does not allow the option of A 
scanning in portrait or landscape as its rival j 

does^ This part of Ihe program Is simply ^ 

designed to allow images to be scanned and 
saved . 

A paint studio has been Included so that pic* 
lures can be tidied up as well as clipped, rotated 
and flipped before being saved, In this respect it is 
better than Migraph s Scan & Save and equivalent to 


Simple tips for quality scanns 


Hand scanners suffer from an Inherent problem of 
wobble which shows up \n finished images as 
skewed lines. The problem is exacerbated by ihe 
original artwork slipping and sliding as you try to 
pass the scanner over it. 

The simplest solution is to break out the masking 
tape and mount the work on a plain background- 


Stick this to a firm work surface then use the Yellow 
Pages and a phone book as edge guides to prevent 
wobble. 

Rather lhan risk damaging the original work by 
using tape, a sheet of thick clear plastic may be laid 
over it and the phone books held down with Blu-Tac. 

If you can't get hold of and sheet plastic you could 


spend a few minutes carefully dismantling a trained 
picture and borrowing the glass for a while, 

□f course it pays to treat shoe! glass with respect 
(and a pair of gloves) so don t attempt this if you are 
at all accident prone, Amiga Computing will not be 
held responsible for any accidents - j 1 you attempt 
this you do so entirely at your own risk!

Power Mono Scanner 


Epson CT-6500 


Did we say that the AlphaScan and Pandaa* scan- 
ners were (wins? Well it seems there are triplets! 

The mono Power Scanner is exactly Ihe same in 
every respect as the Last two except that it has 
been badged with a different name - someone in 
Taiwan must be raking it in. 

Ot course the software side ol things is com- 
pletely different to that supplied with the other 
models, Apart from being able to scan, the pro- 
gram includes an integral art package with the 
obligatory Undo (unction. 

Images may be rotated and resized with program 
options available from the menu strip, as keyboard 
short-cuts and icons. 01 the three packages containing

ware it is the largest and most robust - resembling a

through all the memory you can throw at it. 

Power Computing supply (heir own software called PowerScan 3 which has support for 
AGA machines, Images may be rotated, flipped skewed, inverted and cropped as well as 
being touched up using the integral art facilities. Scans can take quite a while to produce 
because of the amount of detait involved so the Inclusion of a quick scan preview option is 
particularly welcome, In order to accommodate limited RAM. images may be reduced by up 
to 50 percent, OOP is not catered tor which is e pity as the scanner is the only one in this

W ho! can ym toy about leam 17% 
Wei! from wch smdl beginnings, 
the Indi and la&ses from 
Wcke^eld hove risen to become 
one of aur tattmg gomes publisher*. 

You only have to look crt rheir bock coitiiogue to 
reabs-e how impoiani they've become to ihe 
Amiga market Alien Breed, Projed X, Assassin, 
Body Blows, Iwperfrog and Fi7 Challenge could 
all guile happily 90 on my list of deserl istand 
disks. 

Each contained slate-of-ihe-an graphics and 
sound end m ost irnportqrlly displayed 0 wealth of 
plgyab lily. The sheer doss of these products have 
yet to be rolled in my opinion, 

!|r might sound lib Ym indulging) in a ail of 
buH-kissing, but when you have to ploy and review 
us many games as I do if 5 olwayi nice Id see a 
piece of software from Team 1 7. 

You know as soon m you lead if up lhart you' re 
getting a hgh-qudity product. If only alKi- r bigger 
sofewote houses cauld tote note d whal Team 1 7 
□re actually achieving theft ihe Amiga gomes mar- 


ket might be □ safer and letter place. 

Just recently, Team 1? have moved mio the 
budget market wirh immense iweo&ss :he recent 
re releases d Alien Bred end Project X hove shot 
up to the top of the budget charts and hove hardly 
moved hr ten months. Bath gomes have nol strictly 
bean re-neleoses, but instead hove been enhanced 
and improved. 

Team 1 7 J $ ne^t move wg$ to release on original 
game at □ ourjgef price of E*2.P9 FI 7 Challenge 
was by no means a iub-stoncbrd product s*mplv 
beCOvsje it was cheep in fed it received a much 
coated Gamer Gold, 

BUDGET

ed to rdteasi emataer engine: ol a budget price 
So now we hove tar yevr odiberation ond enlep

Qt this screens the ab|Gd is io cample the level

Ai the end at each world, you'll ; ace a

and big bonuses, You can complete it as u&ua by 
colteding all the keys and open mg the door, but 
some keys won’t apoear unless special baddies 
have been disposed at 

I met Team 1 7 suprer-fto Mariyn Brown recently 
and he Idd me that he thought Qwofe was one 
of the best and most playable pannes they had 
ever dprw. 

Nd unusual ym might hear someone horn their 
own company pluggiftg their gums, but never 
before hove Team 17 said anylhing about <he-r 
games - they r d much rather we bund oul how 
mod they are by ploying them ourselves

So when Mortyn soid it wo? gcod I was 0 ittfe 
wory f l?j\ os per usual ^epm 1 7 astounded, pra^ 
cfiicing 0 tittle gem of a budget game. 

Qwak might not amaze you on your first go, 
bul on ypuc second play you'll be totally engrossed 
os that dangerous addictive factor kicks in. Indeed 
this is perhaps one of the mosl additive games I 
hcfve played m my hfe, aver the last few weeks I've 
payed nothing else 1 

It is very similor to Bubble Both e a^d you 
couki LibriDiP accuse Team 1 7 of ripping it atf, but 
then again mosi gcod :oeas come from other mRu- 
ences. it may dp Bvbbb Bobble Ft, but it H s done to

a hoppy-go- lucky Iwvc that hlcrally hounccs along 


whrli you're ploying. The playability is spot on 
with an easy control method and on excellently 
graded tevel of d^Ffe-culiy. 

Qwak <s, most of a I. a fen gome, ond one that

Tunioans 1 ml 2 r alter all this time, itill mete

sic, contefairvg some of the best platform/ shooi- 
'efft-up action I'Ve ewer played 
The gameplcry was basic, but incredibly era* 
im and highly playdble, Your mission was to get

but they were pretty damn hot in the hrsi two 
Turricani arhenteres 

Tunioan 3 Carrie* an where the other gam® Icfl

gamepfay coaled with fancy graphics and sound. 

There are Few differences between 13 and ih 
predecessors. Gone is the ever so useful, enr 
extended laser thingy fhad you could swing around 
your body (yes, you |uil try and explain it in 
words) to be replaced by a rope, 

This raw handy rope helps you reach 
higher platforms with the minimum of fass 
and dso lets you swing across large 
chasms, if you're really dever you 
cun swing up to the roof to avoid 
parliculary nasty buddies and 
then shoo* at them from above 
The weapons and 
power-ups are still included 
and so is the function to turn

This next bit is the best bit The slaves screamed

This scream carried horn cm side of the uni-

Bren quickly strapped on his assault suit and 
loaded his weapons. Now a lean, mean fighting

This, of course, is where you come fa. You loha con-

surprisingly of all have never produced a

Since those days, racers have steadily pro- 
gressed from being incredibly basic to being infri*

Team \ 1 seem ta hovg contyiered every genre

Overdrive features four diluent sJyfo vehi-

A fot has a I read/ been said abou 
Diggers, if being ihe first CD32 
relecHe fo reach the computing maga- 
zines and ane af the firsf fo feature in 
a package for th* launch of Ccfnrnod&re's new 
console 

Many things were said of Diggers by the com- 
puler pros*, nal all of fhem very fair. Far be if fot 
me- to be loo opiniongl&d an the subject of afoars 
feelings an ihis product, but having read some of 
fhe reviews I can't escape a certain fee-ling of 
wariness. 

It saerns fo me shot many reviewers either 
didn'i have ihe Nm* to examine its merils proper 
ly or wiere *00 busy bokmg for relatively superfi- 
cial tricks that the CD32 machine is capable of. 

Normally I w&Jdn'i broach a Sub eel I ike fois 
during a review, but in ihn case I foe il relevant. 

It makes you wonder who! rype of marks Diggers 
would have generated if if hadn i been the scape- 
goat for people who wanted to see lonlastic 
sprigs and graphics on fhe CD 32 I dI&o mokes 

C think wha* type of response it would have 
greeted wilh had it come out on disk prior 
to compact disc 

Having played Diggers extensively, 1 wonder 
exactly what some people ore locking for in o 
htie. How many times have all and sundry duped 
ad suckexed Into falling for great graphics aid 
I (hie or obwfafely no gameplay? 

Haw many do we have to mention to make the 
point? Space Ace cud Dragon* Loir are two fine 
examples and there are dozens more ot ihem 
which lie redundant af ihe back of a dusty 
wafdrdbe - money dawn the drain, 

The point of al' ihis is that Diggers is bloody 
brillian I and while seme magazine shols don't 
make it look like ihe proverbial bee's knees, lei 
me leh you lhai il ii. 

The other fhing lhai needs addressing is the 
number of comparisons that have been mode 
between Lemmings and Diggers. Anyone who 
comes to this conclusion has pfbbahly not even 
played ihe game at all and has looked at it and 
said something along ihe lines of comparing foe 
rdalrve- sizes of sprites. 

Fair enough , both sets of characters are simi- 
lar in height, buf that's where the comparison 
ends. In Lemmings one is pneseniod w-lk a prob- 
lem -and a sol of characters which can be 
assigned a duty, with the goal being to discover 
ihe way through various obstacles. Once the levd 
has been worked out there's little or no point in 
returning to it ever again. 

Dinars is so very different lo this idea lhai il 
leaves Lemmings tunnelling in the dark For one, 
in Digged ihe re are no sir id guidelines for 
achieving swots*; you can go ofcod your busi- 
ness in a combination of ways 

More important though is. the fact lhai you can 


continual* y return to the same level and investi- 
gate different areas lo achieve your goal. 
Conversely you coo vis4 the same bcahon ond 
employ a different strategy, This gives the game 
an everlasting durability and on untold quantity 
of possibilities. 

The whole point of ihis exercise is to soy foal 
Diggers is a very high quality product and hasrv I 
deser^d some of the comments mode about il 
More impartontfy far you, don't be put off by 
superficial comment on graphics (which are pret- 
ty good anyway], as Diggers is brilliant It's a 
masterpiece of programming and geing to go 
down os an absolute dassk- 

Anywoy. I'md my soapbox - I've venled my 
frustration and can now tell you something about 
this new Al 200 version 

Stories of the planet larg's mineral wea th 
wespread for and wide throughout ihe known 
galaxy - a planet so vastly rich in mineral 
resources and ores that it hod become a miners' 
haven. 

However, due to enormous volcanic activity 
nrvd subsidence caused by blatant ovenmining gf 
vast areas, foe plo net's surface had become 
increasingly unstable. Huge chasms slartoa to 
appeal and many lives were losl 

Subsidence end volcanic activity weren't the 
only problems encountered by the Zarqcm gov- 
ernment Lawlessness and greed had resulted in 





fighting and killing between rival factions of

The planet's authorities decided to adto con- 
tain foese problems. Sn so doing, foey decread to 


allow jusl one single month's digging o yetar^ 
leaving she remaining 1 7 months of the year' free 
from foe hurtle and bustle miners and freight 
ships. 

During foil period - foe glorious 41 2th - of

the squad. 

By nine o'clock training's well under way,

from the rest of the squad.

within five minutes he has caused a brawl by 
vomiting at the Salvation Army's Warcry

As the dust settles the last of the squad are 
ejected end lie prostrate on the pavement, 
However, being the keen hardened pros they 
ore, the lads vow to train on and the Dog ond 
Lamp Post is only around the Comer. 

As dosing time looms the team push them- 
selves lo the limit with a range of interesting 
exercises. These range from Last One to the Bar 
is a Girlie Puff, through to Fiiz-Buir and Two

Finally, it's time to reward themselves with the

Sunday morning whan 
a 1 7- slon e abattoir 
worker is beorrng 
down on me. 

The other 
thing Id mention is 
that to alt intents 
and purposes EC is 
two gomes,' 
because you can 
iew play from an 
overhead view or ihe 
can lem pur dry horizontal 
IefHvght view. 

The ploy itself takes a littfe com- 
ing la- terms with, iiuro Chomp uses a slightly dif- 
ferent system lo other fooly titles you might have 
come -nto contact with pmio usly. 

For one il contains on automatic corner, 
ihraw-in and shoot system, which tokos you a 
little by Surprise al first. This may sound a littfe 
odd, especially shooting, but it does produce 
some spacloaJor finishing, Its alia worth point- 
ing aul that oirto^shoot can be overridden, 

With on oulo- throw ond comor system it also 
means that while a computer player is String the 
throw,, you can control a player the throw will be 
directed al. 

Passing also hois some rather fresh approach- 
es to it. For exempt “ping-passing" enables you 
te pick ouk a player,, an or off screen, for a ptreh 


Wharf man menus? 
¥es 1 know, but 
they all fa to make 
it a more rti&Ultk 
game of (jompuler 
foofy... If lh*f« is

5 ion pass, When you do finally manage to con- 
vert the boll into the bewk of the net, you also 
have a fell video replay at your disposal to view 
your triumphs and analyse your mistakes on. 

Once you've mastered the control system 
which al Krsl renders the play o little alien and 
gives a slight feeling of being oul ol your contra 
EC is really very playobfe. 

The graphics ore smart and when you 1 re 
accustomed to the conlrol system European 
Champions is a really enjoyable joystick jape 
&gg ins-1 males or the computer . 

If i always gseng to be tough io compare EC 
with such legends as Sensible Soccer and mae 
slras like Goal,, but it has to be said that while 
Euro chomp has only just turned pro, it's straight 
in the firsl team mid quite capable of holding rh. 
place. 

With the variety of options and different com 1 
petitions available at your Fingertips Eutopetr 
Champions will keep you on the- attack welt into 
injury time,

and con give yourself loads of skill, 

After yovve pondered over the plethora of 
choices On offer you might actually get to the 
touchline. 

The play itufclf is- very reminisient of Emlyn 
Hughes' Intarnahcmal Soccer - this b because il 
too was programmed by Audiogenic,

Thfl evolution o f fee second singe of the Cybrc&n happened when it was felt that the Un-ion could

Over a period of sin years the Alliance's 
defences were eroded away ond defeat was 
imminent However, during this period 
tybercon developed mto iis third stoae of deveh

The rest is fairly straightforward; you go into fee Cybercafes

than done os it's protected by o wide range of defence droids

These include things like fee collection of paw- keys in ihe right order. 

It definitely a case of a dirty jab but someone's got to do il, because feis. is a rltossive htfa to

Set in the future, Drcomweti is wt to to nten-

autonomous control over the mOS*®!,' instead, 
the force that drives the pwple 11 the influence 
of the Onepnvwcb. 

The Dream web is on endless dwelling af 
thought j sounds a trifle like us at Gome* - not] . 
Its central tore is occupied by seven powers 
whose influence dictates the sway of the 
Dreomwrfsp 

If ib web hs dominated by evil, then lb

You have the rather unenviable task af 
destroying the seven hods before they reach

Dream f dr^niti, dream..* Well that's what

HUNTED DOWN 

IYt no easy ride though unarmed and unpre- 
pared, the plot thickens os the struggle te restore 
the web ID neutrality ensues. Mare murder* 
means police involvement arid been hunted 
down by farmer Friends.. 

Having seen an early version, if ha* la be 
soid that things look good. ft throws together a 
mixture flf sfience^fiction and adventure in a 
very dark and moody manner. 

Development team Creative Healify admit

such as ifaderunner and Mongo dank Akira 
While you can spot these influence*, they only

Another feature is a unique Pick Up Object 
option. This will render every single item u*«We r

hundreds involved and each con be observed

thing about this option is that when you come to 
examine object*,, other smaller items will he

With mere lhan 200 rooms to explore in over 


30 locations, Dreomweb will hove □ lot of depth 
to it. IPs extremely moody and atmospheric and l 
for one am looking forward to falling into its 
mysterious ethereal wadd.

e have already seen that the key to 
ARexx r s dynamic pntenrial is its ability Do 
create new variables nn-tbe-fly,. csr under 
user control, thus effectively blurring the distinct ton 
between what is *pF«gram n am I what ls “data" 

This feature sets it apart from more traditional Ian- 
guages like Basic; C and Pascal, where the distinction us 
pretty dear 

We have seen liow variables on Ik- created in niid- 
program with CQmprjund symbols and second level suh- 
ri-Ei tut ton, and also how they can be created by 
INTER FRET mg a character string erf valid ARexx code, 
t’or those of you familiar with Basie, this is like l lav- 
ing the so-called "direct mode' available at all limes. 
For instance in Basic direct mode you can <k> something 
ilke: 

> a » 5 : PIIHf 1 * a 

and you should get a result of 21 printed out. However, 
you cannot enter the same string in mid-program and 
expect a result. In Altera, any input 
data passed to the INTERPRET 
instruct ion is immediately interpreted 
and, in a sense, added to The 
program - like m the mini-inierpreter 
routine: 


tialLsed state by using die instruction DROP, 

This time, we will have an in-depth look to see just hern 
ASexs handles the symbols that represent its variables, ^ ■ 
will also lcx>k at some of l 3 ie functions provided which arc 
helpful for dynamic programming, as well as some functinn 
for analysing data. 

A dear understanding of these ideas will help you avoid 
many of the common pi i falls of Ahcxx programming, and h 
extremely useful for the practical application of ARexx. 

Now, we all know that AKera is a “typelesT language - 
that is, you do not have to declare beforehand whether vnui 
variables will contain single characters, strings., floating poini 
decimals or wJiatcver. The language, takes cue of this auid- 
matlcilly. We also know that all Altera data are handled 
strings of characters. 

How does this affect the symbols that represent variables 
After all, we have just seen that data can be used as fxut of 


Flexibl 


/**/ OPTIONS PROMPT ? 

M FMEVtR UNTIL dtt 4 = 'h ft' 

PARSE PULL da la 
JhTFfiPIFi dits 
END 

we can enter ihe foRiiwing string as data, and we will 
get the expected result; 

1 i - 3 ; sat 7 * I 

In this wax- Altera can pfewide a mini-AKera calculator 
at any time. Nine that any existing variable called h a" in 
the program wilt now Ik rnodifted, so while tills tech- 
nique ss very powerful^ ii is also potentially tkngen>us! 

Of course, ax w-ell as being able to create variables at 
any time, AKexx can also reset them to their unini- 


new variable names, and that the supposed g^p between dau 
and program variables is easily brulged. 

Does ibis mean that any string can he the name of a vari- 
able? Well actually no,,, there are some rules to be followed 
which we xvill set in a moment. 

Intuitively then, once you liave used ARexx for a while, 
you might guess that there ure four different "types' - ot sym- 
bols. As well as quoted strsugn i which are enclosed in either 
single or double quotation marks), there apf^ear to be; I 
uninitialised variables, L variables with assigned values, 3 
numeric variables, <a special case of 2) whidi allows antle 
nieiic operations, and 4. compound symbols, such as those 
used for arrays, rabies, and so on. [si actual fact, the dawifica- 


Power LOGO 

For some time now I neve been watching, and occasional- 
ly an interesting Ireeware Amiga anguage called 
Po^etlOGO. It Is written by American author Gary 
Teacboul and has been coos^tently hn proving; now, in 
ve^smci ^ 3. 1 was pleased to see that ARexx support has 
been added. 

LOGO should not be dtemissad as a language, its fea- 
tures tor list processing, recursive programming, and turtle 
graphics can teach prospective programmers a loi 
Rowe r LOGO has gone fat in addressing many of the 
weaknesses of the original language, and adding many 
powerful new ideas 

Languages I ke LOGO and its parent, LISP have a con- 
cept cal ec a 'daemon", which is b^sicalty a tost loop that 
runs iny-s^y and monitors events which may nappen at 
any time, m a hign-eve! interrupt. This is useful fCNr getting 
nput from thi ngs tike moused iCks. hot-keys and The like 
You can now a -so hnk your tovoume ARexx-coitTOfible 
text eotor .v th LOGO so. that you can run prog tans 
o rectfy, uv> Shout having to go ttirough the save load cycle 
If you have a I Ttte LOGO piogrammmg experience, and 
some suitable documentation, such as Commodore's 
Ar: Q 2 RQ\f K&M& manuats, you ca^ even see how to 
implement a message receiving loop in LOGO. Thts is a 


standard technique for the Amiga, no matter what lan- 
guage you use. 

PowerLOGO is a very capable language, diawmg on 
many USPTike features, and far superior io the "schOOk 
room" LOGOs usually avaitabte. It supports Amiga sound 
and graphics, and would be very useful fu r prototyping or 
experimenting wilti software. The author also recom- 
mends some excellent hooks on the subject 
While usijng PmerLOGO to write an application frtghl 
be dtsadvaniageous because ol the interpreter size and 
(sack of) speed, there are some deltmle advantages, par- 
ticularly the simplicity and tniegraiion ot she system. 

Many of the Intuition features {such as windows and 
menus} are aval able without having to resort to trie corr- 
pfexitos of system programming, so it is a good way to cut 
one's teeth on some of the mam Amiga principles with 
minimum bother.

[ion system lilac ARexx uses ls qiLiLc. 1 HimilLtr Eo ibis Four riiLim 
types of symbols Lire recognised. 

Simple symbols 
Fixed Nymhnls 
Stem s>TqbdIs 
Compound symbols 

Simple symbols are those we most usually think of as names of 
variables, although theue is no particular reason to do other 
dun convention. They can lie made up c ?J Liny combination of let- 
ters (tipper or lower ease), digits and the lour characters ! ? _ and 
S, Tl tey may not sum with a numerical elij4.i1 or contain a full stop. 

ARexx is not ease sensitive, so any mixture of upper and lower 
case characters may be used In fact, ARexx promotes any lower 
case characters that make up the symbols to uppercase, so that 
MyVar" is ihe same ;is "MYVAH" then 1 are two different ptad-

Along yvith the INTER PR HI 
induction* the Value!) Function is 
ork of the more powerful tools for 
dynamit programming - in a way 
1 hey are compli^wtary tu each 
other Whereas the funner allows 
new variables to l>u created while 
j program is running. I lie taller 
allows the value of the variables to 
be accessed in mid-program Thfc 
is again similar to having a “direct 

mode" avail- 
able at all 


times.

hiliEies here. If die symbol represents a variable dun has already 
been initialised (for instance vart = ’siIm:'? tlven its value Is obvi- 
ously the one given to it- However, if il has not ye! been mu 
a.dised, then its value is its name in uppercase, 

fixed sy mb: 1I1 may lxgin wid* ,1 digit or a full sn«p If; ■■ 
mainly used by ARexx for representing numbers N<ne thal they 
are not restricted feo digits only, and may contain letters, as for 
example in engineering notation , 200 E- 1 . 

Tiding to assign a value to Iked symlxiLs Ls usdess and will 
luive no effect on ARexx, even though it will he accepted. So a 
statement like “labc * is; siu labc" will merely give you 
H IABC"- 

Finally we have stems and compound symbols which we will 
not look at in detail, since we already did so m the last issue. 

The only things [ will stress once again, are ill at if you DROP a 
stem you DROP all its associated compound symbol, and that - 
unlike simple symbols - the nride 3x1ns of li compound symh il 
are case sensiii^e. and may even lx: composed of stnngs dial arc 
riot legal symbol names (see November Issue)! 

When an expression is evaluated in Ata, all the symhoK arc 
finst evaluated or "expanded ' Ln a strict left-foright order. You 
can see ibis in detail by using ARexx's excellent tracing facility, 
with the 1 ( intermediates) option. 

Add the line TRACI I to your program, and as it runs, it will 
pause al each line, waiting for you to press Enter before it contin- 
ues. AKexx supplies three functions to keep track of symbols anil 
variables - SytnbdK ). Value! and Datatype! ). 

Suppose we Want to tind out whether a particular symbol has 
t>een initialised as a variable. The Symbol 0 Function will return 
one ot three values depending fin the status ol ihe supplied sym 
Ixil. II rite symbol has already l'»een initialised ax a variable, the 
function mums the string 11 VAR" 
if the symbol has not been in il ia Used, or is a fixed symbol (that 
is, if is meant to lx: taken literally), the function returns “LTT , If 
the supplied value is not even x legal symbol in ARexx iken die 
value 11 BAD r is returned. 

The following lines (typed at the CU) iUuttrjte this: 


fuse you total lv 1: 


ValueO func- 
tion returns 
the value of 
the given sym- 
bol, The following should illustrate (or con- 


f * vi liHdtKtcms/* 

a * 111 

fa - 1 a 

BAY 3 & V a L uf t 1 b 1 I V a I y f t b i 

The result is 111 a a 111 . 

The first and second printed values, “Hr and \i" are * ibvtuus. 
since they are merely tile values of variables. "Ull- third one, . i is 
the value ol the string ~b n which is ihc variable in "h , |i>t like the 
second one, 

Finally, the last one is Ehe value of the variable in 'be in other 
words the string 'a; whose value is “111" since it exists as an ini- 
tialised variable. Pbewl 

Don't worry r if you don't understand this at once, it is more difil ■ 
ail i to describe than to grasp. With a little practice you will si»on 
gel the hang of it. Here is another. simpler example 

>n H i = 1 apitats 1 i HT a ifalyriri 1 

> capital CAPITALS 

Here, Value! a) gets promoted to capitals, since it is an uninitialised 
variable. Note that ValueCaM means exticdy foe same thing as a. 

Finally, ARexx provides the Daiuiypcl ) function, predictably 
enough for analysing data. When used with one argument this 
function return s’one of the two values "MUM or UHAKL depend- 
ing on whether the data is a number or not 

However, the function can also he used wiLh a second argu- 
ment, which is a keyword to determine whether the data belongs 
to a certain group. The function then returns either "lTTfuei or 
'IT! False). 

The following keywords are recognised, and mai lx: ablirm isiicd: 

Alphanumeric - mixed letters and numbers. Liny case; Binary - (is 
and Is only; Lowercase. Uppercase; Mixed - i.e. upper and lower 
case: Numeric - valid numbers (any notation); Symbol - valid 
ARexx symbol; Whpie - whole numbers only; X - hex digils ((> K k 
For instance; 


In this, the 
second part of 
our discussion of 
dynamic code, 
we look at the 
way ARexx 
handles the 
symbols which 
represent its 
variables

these data types or groups arc meaningless to ARexx, since

OGRAMMING

this until later ort in the senes 

For the present kTs take a look a! computer logic so that Wt 
may build on it Lind use it in decision- making and program 
loops. Yon may already be familiar with the concept til Boolean 
logic, in which case this tutorial should not he too alien. If ikjl, 

■ » .tr with us, js understanding computer logic is an essentia] 
i"pet1 of the pcugrammi ng process. 

Boolean variables can only hold two values, Tme and False, 
h; opemhoEis slut may lx applied are NOT, AND„ OH and she 
result of one of these will be a IxxJean value, Traditionally, these 
-.rations ure illustrated using truth tallies: 


NOT 


A 

NUT A 

False 

True 

True 

False 


The result of NOT h is the opposite of A. 



- unsigned a value is by using comparison operator 

- equal

Imagine a stock control system whereby an item of stock is re- 
■fcrt.'d I i 1 >l numlvj '.-I in -ms i.iiTentk in -crock i?. Uss lhan a 


threshold value. A Boolean variable cm lit' set 
according to (he amount of items currently in 
stock and used to indicate whether more 
mxids should he ordered. 

\\ e w ill also assume that the stock room Jus 
a maximum storage space for III) items and 
lh;il if there are more than this an siix'k its tinte 
h if a sale! 

h m ?k je listing 1 . Apart from showing how 
Boolean values may lx used, we have also 
introduced a few more statements to our pro 
grim which need mu ne explanation. 

Hie first ol these idtrjduces the concept ul 
constants As the name suggests, li con si. ml is j 
sLicn. value which will not change ihmuglmul 
the execution of a program. The keyword 
. msi used to indicate that what follows is a 
Ih i T constant definitions 
In nuf program we have defined two of 
these - MSN Lind MAX.) whose values we will 
refer 1 1 1 ait never change We could have just 
used die facial values I % and 100 thmcighouf

the program However die Ix-neiit of using constants b tltat all reftr- 
ena s lo these values cun lx 1 changed in one go by altering die cod- 
-.Lmi definiEicxrvi This is easier than tracking down each occtlitilL'e ■ -I 
the numlvrs IS and h o i? ilk- nanmium anil maximum s hick levels 
are changed at a later date. 

Imagine the chaos that would result if we used I item I values m a 
large pritgram and had to figure out whether a number realh did 
refer to stock levels or whether it represented some other value used 
fi ir another purpose. 

As a general mle cil thumb use constants wlkmever \y issiMe It 
will make malntaimnee ol your programs much easier. Going kick 
lo Boolean optTitofs again, we have used Iwo statements to del e r- 
mine the values ol the Boolean variables reorder and sale?. I In.- way 
that these work is that the expression in brackets Ls os jJilllll I with 
the result of either True or False being assigned to the variables. 

These statements car look quite daunting to a first lime pmgram- 
mer blit all that is required b to interpret the assignments in the cor 
red way. The first of these is: 

reorder := ^tucllnfcl <= H 3 H 3 ; 

If the sock level is less than or equal to MIN the result is True, 
otherwise False*. 11 ie result Is then stored In the Boolean variable 
reorder. Oi course the actual result will de fiend upon the value Ltd 
tite slock evd which is entered at the .stun erf iJ>e program. 

hmlh wv luve introduced a simple form of the if statement - 
which will lx? the subject of next month's tutorial. 


Colin Yarnell 
continues his 
Pascal tutorial 
by introducing 
a bit of logic in 
the form of 
Boolean 
variables

C-oC-«!C-<aCoC<C^ 








I though nmsivdy popular in its day, the question is: 
Can the new DMCS really stand up to the onslaught of 
power products which have taken die high ground dur- 
ing its absence? 

All hough the new Vision I k KL. sts some major Lrnpnowiix^nis, die 
f Kisk‘ concept is pretty much iikmticsal to that ol its praJeces&ur As 
dder nusos may recall DMCS was - and indeed still Ls - strictly 
dedicated to nutuiun, 

Unlike the big names in such as FJara&Pipes Piu and KCS, DMCS 
does not double up as a seejuera r. As .l result, .ill noiL-> within w 
-Lore need lo he added ! . ia the mouse., or alternatively loaded in .is 
a SMLjS file - assuming your sequencer or tracker laipports SMI > 

HlCpIlL 


Thankfully hlectronk Arts have thrown in a third optioci in the 
tbmi of limited Midi support Unfortunately the program won’t 
accept Midi files directly but ii will take jwne jiifamoatkiii fiom a 
Midi keylxsard. As li result you can luxik up j Midi keyboonl via d 
standard ifflerikt- anil play notes directly into die sc ore. A particu- 
larly pleasant aspect of tills approach is die ability of the software to 
iiL.th'ic tin 1 duration of key depre.sstons - thereby varying the nttft 
i-ngih as liny enter* the stave. 

Tiie programs audio feedback can also tike advantage uf the 
dtili LXinnection by assigning the output of either single or multiple 
staves to die Midi channels and presets of yxiur choice. 

The only restriction is dim each Stave must rewiain im itv original 
channel (although die presets - or voices - a in lx: altered at any 
[Mint within die piece), .it winch point the program change will 
appear in the score as a raw-definable voice name. 

Obviously like any self- respecting Amiga package, internal 
si mnds can also play a jian when called upon. En tael to nuke ihi 
X'st uf the machine's internal lalents a kiiriy impressive collection o! 
pimples cadie as part of the program's support software, 


MACRO GENERATION 

Olwfeiusly inifjnjved Midi support and n facelift for the interface 
.iren'l die only changes. In (act one of the mast notable improve- 
ments is the addition of a new macro pu I down menu. 

As the name suggests, macro generation and playback are the 
primary concern, which in practice allow 1 you (0 first initiate a 
wording process, apply as many edit functkmH as you wish and 
then halt die recording This new macro can then be appended to 4 
unction key and executed whenever iieres^iry 

Although not exactly earth-shattering, macros - like a Midi key- 
board - can .save hours of tedious repetition, and of course the) 
can lie saved and recalled on demand, while yet another innovation 
brings Aftexx into the DMCS equation, 

When it conies to editing, most time is spent pointing and click- 
ing on the accompanying tool window which prmsdes instant 
acres* to fust about every oombdriaticure of note and rest imaginable. 

Better still, the window uill evolve depending ujxin which edit 
mode is active, allowing resdutkai up to the 64th note and a lull 
range of dynamics, which can Ik: applied cither individually or 10 
entire groups of notes, Lyrics um also lx 1 added where necessary 
while existing notes and nests can be moved or erased at will 
wliedier they lie double dots, 64th notes. se|itupleis or wluiever 
eLse. 

As ft ir riv j interface itself, things appear pretty similar to the origi- 
nal with the main score window dominating die vast majority of the 
h rcen accompanied by a miniature mouse-driven keybotud lor on- 
screen note addition. 

t nlike some of the combination sequ e nter/ nt Ha [ ion packages, 

1 1MCS offers a constant Wysiwyg display of the printed page, Like 
.my printing job this requires a certain amount of setting up to co- 
oidinaie berth primer and screen but once defined you 're guaran- 
teed perfect output every time. 

in general DMCS is fairly impressive with easy editing and 
impressive ■ printouts, apparently all you could want from a notation 
package. However five years is a long time, during which the 
Amiga music scene has really hlussomed 

Hie Eimin hurdle the program has to face isn't ats own faults hul 
rather the power and flexibility tif the opposition. At the forefront 
untie KCS and Ifcii^hpus Pro - both of which offer incredibly 



powerful "equeneing alongside impressive 
] 'mi, 1 lion printing. 

However it you're quite happy with sour 
existing sequencer DMCS could prove an 
inialiubJc add-on for those who feel the 
need to gel their creations in |xrint, althcxigh 
it could ix- worth investigating The Copyist 
and The Copyist's Apprentice - PostScript 
and non-Po^Soipt respectively - from Zone 
Distribution on O'? 1-924 Q9W before you 
make ii 1 ?ur final decision.

here can't he .1 serious ctimms user who isn't on 
surely. OK so some ol yon aren't, you'd rather use some- 
thing which doesn't lxjsI a packet to use Yes ] know 
using services which «. 1 1 . 1 rge In 7 the Jmmlt is very tiresome, and cun 
lead to pome sury BT hills, hut ii needn't lx 1 like lIilu. 

Off-line renders make life on BBS much more fun, us they cui 
die amount g( time you're on the system down To an inhuman min- 
imum. By (he use of carefully designed scripts ihey allow y on m be 
m. do what you need To do and get off in the smallest time possi- 
ble. 


All the compaction of messages and replying to email, down- 
loading of files and file Lists is automated. So if you want to leave a 
message for someone you dcirfr need to come up with something 
witty them and ilnm, You can take tin hour or so to think it up. 
w hich would of course lx- silly anti expensive on-line. 

Set for ihe price of |he shareware lee you can save money on 
your phone bill, make ecli while you're < inline, und make all your 
cortfeiunce and email messages sound like tiiey were written hy 
Bertrand Russell. 

The Nicda off-line reader, or OLR as they are eommonh called, 
is the luiesi in u lung line of good> hud and indifferent Ai niga QLfts 
for C3X Some haw liern pretty bad 1 3 can promise you, hu! even 
though Nicola Ls far from perfect. It's functional and is constantly 
Iving upgraded. 

]t even lias its own conference on CDE, which nukes vend won- 
der what would happen if ynurOUi wasn't working and you want- 
vd to leave a message on the BBS to complain?! 



Nicola's off-line conference facilities 

Anyway, the system is really simple to own and use First you 
are a OX user, so you download the file from the nicoEa confer- 
ence. This is t!ie program you need and everything Ls complete. 
This isn’t a crippled version oi the program... but (and as ytm will 
notice , iJlls j> a big hut 1 in order to nun the program you need a 
sort of software dongle tailed a "licence". 

"IIlLs is a file you get from the author of the program (tockytfciv) 
wImt sends you a time, limited file which has checksums and so on 
to ensure that once the file expires you can't use the Nicola pri> 
gram before you \%i\ him for the it. 

Sort of Twisr-your-ann-wa re (I'm kidding, tricky) Hie fee is 
something like ,E35 or similar, and For that you get a non-tijne-Umit- 
ed licence. 

The program allows you to do all the tilings you would do with 


BBS watch 

Those of you wilh fast modems and sick minds might like to 
check out Private Idaho BBS in the US. It’s lull of bad taste 
humour (mostly about religion it has to be said) and 
although there’s nothing actionable there, it 1$ strictly 
□eooJe with a heatihv disr^soect for other D^oole's 
Apart from that It does have some absolutely 
features, ofl -the- wait programs I've never seen els 
and one of the best chat with the sysop modes ever 
The Reverend Idaho is the funniest auto-sysops, 
Psycho-Op, and has to be seen lo be believed. 

To get Private Idaho call 010 1 



the dumpster diver s BBS ", t th 
your own mind. 




OX. but kiscd on whai the program cull-, a 
*kxal cblftoe 1 '. that is lu .say a small I mul- 
ed version 4 HI OX on your own hard di.sk 
or floppy, 

If Li message doesn't exist ii'll get ii next 
lime, and 6m is the omly real drawback to 
the system, Everything is deferred until die 
nexi time ;iiilI eJiLs means dint if you've got 
.i lot (if hack and forth work to do you will 
Heed lo kig on Two or ihree Times to get ir 
ait soiled out. 

Bui you wilt only need to Jo this very 
infrequently, To lie honesi. such wasteful 
on again, off again activities are the product 
of old-think. Your habits will change when 
using Nicola and so any stuff you need to 





do will change too. For example lIicr-'II Ik* no random schlepping 
around new conlereiU L^. You'll luive to pin diem and wail for the 
messages to come an. And Usenet? Well you ran forget about that 
my lad although lm sure with a bit of collusion between CIX and 
tricky Nicola could lx.- made to parse and store Usenet messages 
lot i or is dial all too much? 

Perhaps. There are specialist newsreaders fear L sentu peritip 1 ' it 
would be better lo use one ol ihuSc, Anyone got a plan fur an 
OLR lor l senet on OX or wherever? 

Nicola revolutkmises- your CDC usage, not just simply changing 
the way you tise the system but making ii easier to enjoy yourself 
Messages are raj longer a chore to do, binmails no longer fraught 
with tricky problems. 

II you binmail someone they automatically get due file and a 
message saying it’s lureat sent. None ol the "upload iL and forget 
Lu bin it syndrome which I for one suffer from all i\w time. In fact 
i's die reverse, sometimes Its til so auEomatie you occasionally 
forget you uploaded everything. No pfublnti. El (heft's no work lo 
do, Nicola won't let you gr> on-line Ef ytm can't get undine to send 
it, you've sent ii already, 

I think despite the odd niggles (w hich I'm talking through will 
Tricky as we ’ipeakJ Nicola is the best and most reliable OLR for 
(L\ ever built, arid ,1 shall certainly stump up die dash when ihe 
licence run 1 ' uut, th il's undoubtedly siving me a small fortune in 
plK mu culls. 


Phil South tries a 
new off-line reader 
for the CIX 
conferencing 
service which

Amos, like DRAW and BAR, a bkw.lt of colour looks 
very nice un the screen, but its u hit dull, 

Vt'hat s needed is n hi I more Ecxiure. Well fortunately for all of 
us there Lire some hn lilt- in patterns Lm Alitor which tan enhance 
your programs and bring, universal hiirrnony to the planets, u bit 
like Bill and Ted\ music. 

lliLs month's program hdp$ you to try out the various pattern 
types, and display them in all manner of different colour 
combinations. 

We siait in a familiar fashion:

this particular screen is square. Cursor is out and flash is oil, so 
no distractions from [lie main event.

The subroutine begins with a dear screen command. This turn.

Lcica if. 1,1 : Input "Seisct Patltrii D to U 1 ;PI 


The locate command puts the cursor on column - sine - an*.] 
prints a row of spaces - ot them in fact. This is called a blank 
in (he trade, and it ensures that the line containing the test is free 
of text to slarE with 


P^sttPt) 

Now this is where it gets interesting. VAL convert a string : - j 
numl>er. The reason for using tlii.s rather than a simple INI 1 t i l J 
is i I lk if the user inputs a number or letter th <en ibis filters n out

You v ullcl test only for the F. or the Enter key (.look up St.AN-

You could make this whale program more sophisticated by 
using mouse control to s(>ccify lire area you wanted it> draw a 
| K .\ around, and using cdour palette selection winrkiws for the 
Ixu k and foreground colrnirs. This is all done with mouse Doties, 
but then you know all i&L If you don'i E’K be delving into build- 
ing vour own requesters in a near future Issue of this column. 


If a tricky but it can be done. Can you write a program 
which lets you load your own patterns into Amos? You 
can? Can you alter the program to display a pattern and iet 
you try different colours on the pattern? 

Well don't just sit there patting yourself on the groin, 
flippin' well send it ini Usual address buf mark your enve-

Amiga Computing December 1993 








eetlng deadlines cnn be li tough job, especially 
when a layout eon mi ns 1 1 els of fiddly I jits thal are 
repeated page after page. What you need is to get 
your publishing program to do the nasty bits, leaving you 10 get 
obi with the creative side of tilings. 

The two top' Amiga publishing programs incorporate two dif- 
ferent tools For this - PruFage employs AKexx in the form of Its 
genies* PageStreum Ills a macro system using its own seiipiLng 
language 


OF the two, the ge flies are more powerful* but macros 
require much le^s effort to program. Both systems can be 
assigned key presses. 

Although initially quite technical looking, ProFagc's genics 
arc lirtle more than scripts containing embedded ProPage and 
AKexx commands. There is a notion that unless you are an 
expert in the Afiexx programming language* creating geuies is a 
dilli cult task. Not so. 

Gerties can lie as simple as a single ProFage command or as 
complicated as rite genres that come with the program. The 
more you want die genie to do. the more commands you are 
going t o have program it iu carry, out rind the greater knowl- 
edge of AHexx you will need. Let's uke a kxjk at two examples 
oN bow geuies tan do the work for you. 

A document that Mima ins many pieces of text that have to be 
styled differently to that of the main copy can take a while to 
lay om. The M> can he made easier by creating a set of tags for 
cadi style. 

Then, to enable you to apply these lags to the text using a 
key prevs, you will need lu make a genie. This would contain a 
comment M the first line and then the ProPage command to 
apply the tag, which in this case would he "call SecSryleTagitj^:- 
namer. 


RAPID WHITE-ON-BLACK 


But you car do more than just: charge texl, as we will see 
with our second example, A task which could take as lorg a 4 - 
ten minutes to create ts a panel thar contains a heading that h 
while texl on a black background. 

by using the commands that ProPage has for genie v it is 
possible to write a scrip! that creates the Ikjx, li hks you for the 
text to lie placed in there and then goL^ off and does all the fid- 
dly bits like adding margins and setting the text colour 

At the end of it you have genie that converts a ten-minute 
job into one that takes $0 seconds, ami all at the stroke of a 
key. 

PageSrream dtie* not support AKexx, although this is likely to 
lx 4 added lor v.J, What PageStream does tune are mucros ilu: 
can l>e run by pressing a function key, These can be pro- 
grammed manualh by typing in the commands, or you can use 
Page stream's a mo-record function. 

To create a macro to change a piece of text on a key press, 
you would first create a tag for that text and then sun 
PageStreu ms auto- record process. I se the keyboard ro select 
die necessary lag and, onee finLshed, stop the record process. 



Pri?Pijge F s geuies can be assigned 0 hotkey, enabling 
you to change a piece of text with one Keystroke 


PUBLISHING 


The macro is now ready to be used on 
even piece of text that requires thar tag to 
be applied to It 

Macro* can do more than change text 
and, unlike ProFages geuies, complicated 
procedures can be auto-recorded, 
Dropped capitals that can lake many min- 
ute-* t; 1 design can be Created by a macro 
in second 1 *. 

Firmly you need to create a tag for the 
dropped capital to limit rhe number of 
keypresses needed to apply the text attrib- 
utes fat the capital. It is abg advisable to 
us«. a large amount of baseline shift io 
move the capital to the bottom of its box. 

This enables the baseline of the capital 
E" I ale U]i with a baseline of Lite main text 
wishnUT pushing the next line of text out 
oi pb.ee js wdl 

Once thy tag is in place, set auto-record 
in action Stamp the text tool on the page 



One touch 

DTP 


and lype the diameter for the dropped capital, using the key • 
txxtfd iu select it. Apply die tag to it, select the object tool and 
then text runaround. 

Select a horizontal offsci to push tile text away from the 
opiul and then ibe type of runa round to be used. Again, all 
■hi stL’ps should lie done using the keyboard. 

bod the auto-record process and the macro is complete. 
\ow w ften you want a dropped capital you stamp the text tool 
on the page, type the character and then hit the function key 
for the macro. 

in j lew seconds Lite dropped capital will hr in the correct 
typeface and size with text runaround on, All that is needed i^ 
to place ii on top of your text The rime that can fse saved 
when, hiving to create many dropped capitals is enormous 
s . whether you use Professional 3 -age or FageStreani you 
don't hive an excuse for having to put up with those repetitive 
tasks, as the power of the program is on the end of your 
fingertip* 


Why waste time 
creating documents 
when you can have 
your publishing 
program do the 
work for you?
