JhbI + -■■!.: rr^nths after the console hit 
thr *tri*ts ils software has taken more 

~ * 7 ’-r cent of the total CD games 
Tvirki ■ .stripping Sega Mega CD and 
K CD-ROM, 

c mmndore's David Plea sa nee said: 
Tt'i taken u> just a few months fo domi- 
- (. D software sales chart. 

Thai a testament to the quality of 
\miga CD32 and the efforts of the 
re publishers. 

“Programmers have only scratched the 


surface of 32-bit CD technology, The com- 
ing months will sec even belter games 
produced - and that can only increase our 
hold on the chart." 

But the news is not all rosy for 
financially-troubled Commodore,, with 
claims that disappointing Mega CD soft- 
ware sales rather than an increase in 
CD32's has caused the situation. 

Industry sources say that PC CD-ROM 
has increased its market share during 
recent weeks at the expense of the Mega 
t:i>, while the CD32 has been static. 

They also point out that combined 
software sales on compact disc still 
account for little more than three per cent 
of the entire marketplace.

THE cockles of visitors' hearts 
were warmed to the core by the 
sigh! of rack upon rack of broadcast 
video equipment at the Video 
Forum show held recently at 
London's Wembley Exhibition 
Centre, 

Tntac wens there with their Director

which looks like a soripus compeirtor 
lor the Amiga Centre Scotland's 
Harlequin. 

G 2 had their range of gen locks and 
Scala UK shared (heir stand showing 
off Scala MM300. 

But most interesting of all 
was DPS's stand, who had the 
Personal Animation Recorder (PAR) - 
basically a board with a last hard drive 
on it that emulates a digital disk 
recorder. 


PLONK 

Take your 24-bit frames you ren- 
dered in Imagine, plonk them on me 
PAR and record them out via compos- 
ite, Y/C or component video straight to 
any video> recorder. 

You no longer need a video capa-

baby will send out pictures at full 
frame rate! 

With an optional capture card, you 
can even digitise up to live seconds of 
live video straight onto the PAR. touch 
it up on the Amiga and send it back 
out.

Colour prints cost less 


PRINTER giant Siii' have ml the price of their S|-l44 colour ther- 
mal transfer printer and opened presentation centres aimed at 
giving better customer support. 

The firm say that although the machine was launched last sum- 
mer at £569, increased production has enabled the company to 
reduce it to £459 - less than many colour inkjet models. 

Put by using true colour pigments rather than liquid dyes, Star 
say the SJ- 1 44 'n output is brighter than that of inkjet* ami will nut 
smudge or fade, 

In developing the printer, the company claim they paid partic- 
ular attention to controls and paper handling functions to ensure 
the machine is easy to use, 

Fifteen LEDs give a summary of the printer's status, while 
zoom and two-page modes enable images to be printed at 100, 80, 
67 or 50 per cent size for better document formatting. 

Output is at T65 x 360 doth per inch and it has a print speed in 
colour of l A pages per minute. 

It is sold through a nationwide network of "strategically 
placed" presentation centres, made up of retailers who have expe- 
rience in dealing with computer users needing colour output. 

According to Star, the centres will guide customers to exactly 


the right printer for their needs and will give a high level of 
support. "Users now have a far greater choice of colour' pant- 
ing options available," said Star marketing manager Annette 
Tori ton, 

"The SJ-144 Presentation Centres will work closely with the 
end user and give them the best possible advice on the best 
value colour method to suit their needs.'"

range or hardware and software, 

Many leading developers of prod- 
ucts from around the world have 
pledged their support tor the initiative, 
and it has been given a huge backing 
from Commodore, 

"The Amiga Centre of Excellence

SEVERAL features have been added to A SI XTs Art Department Professional including a 
choice of two user interfaces and extra support for third-party products. 

Version 2.5 enables users to control the software through list or button-oriented graphi-

...or Can You? 


£? 113 BQ 





I t hasn't tween a month of very good 
news for Amiga users over here. Ah 
this article was going tu press. 
Commodore announced that the v were 
pulling nut nt the World of Commodore’ 
Amiga show, originally slated Ln take place 
in early April in New York City . 

Commodore have been a major sponsor 
of tire show (the only trade show dedicated 
to Amiga products in North America), and 
without the company's participation it 
wasn't viable io go on with I he show 
Even though the Amiga's populari ty has 
been waning tor a while in the States, the 
WOGA show's remained popular and uvlh 
attended, and always produced plenty of 
new-producl aimotwosments tci help keep 
Amiga users’ spirits up. It's unknown at 
this point whether the Fall show in 
Southern California wit I also be canoelkxL 
In another blow, a caller inquiring about 
products with major Amiga developer 
Cold Disk was told that Amiga develop- 
ment iv jh being dropped. 

After that user posted the information tu 
on-line networks, a Cold Disk representa- 
tive posted the following clarification: 
''Contrary to this information, Gold Disk 
has not stopped support of their Amiga 
products. Cold Disk in suspending devel- 
opment of new versions of software pend- 
ing further growth in Amiga's market 
share. To repeat, wo are continuing sup- 
port and will endeavour to wive problems 


Rays of sunshine 



On a brighter note. ASDG have fust 
shipped Art Department Professional 2,5. 
a major upgrade to their cutting-edge 
image processor; Soft-Logik is finally 
nearing completion of thair tong-awaited 
Page St ream 3.0 upgrade which promises 
to make Professional Page nothing more 
than a bad memory anyway; and a spec- 
tacular update to Oxxi's TurboTexl text 
editor is in the works. 

ADPrg 2.5 was mentioned in Iasi 
month’s column. Out it's so cool I just 
can't stop talking about it. The specifica- 
tion sheets just can't get across how 
much easier ihe program is to woik with 
nowadays, Check ou! Ihe new user inter- 


face running on a lb-colour Workbench 
screen in Figure I. A more dramatic 
usability improvement is shown in Figure 
11. which shows AD Pro's new compositing 
screen: you can now visually place ele- 
ments on a picture in a screen mode ol 
your choice. 

And the incredible selection of ARexx 
macros lor ihe included Fred utility give 
AD Pro batch image-processing capabili- 
ties unmatched on any platform. 

PageStream 3-0 has taken longer to 
wrap up than Solt-Logik initially esti- 
mated, bul the program will definitely be 
worth ihe wait. I've had a chance lo work 
with Alpha versions of tho program, and it 
has many capabili- 
ties that arc 
unmatched even by 
high-end Macintosh 
programs like 
Quark Xpress and 
PageMaker. A 
revamped user 
interface (see The 
accompanying 
screen grabs}, 
long-document 
publishing features, 
Panlone colour 
support, and full 
AGA support are 
only a few of the 
features added, 

If you do find any- 


thing missing, a very complete ARexx com- 
mand suite will let you add just about any 
capability imaginable. Professional Page 
users interested in upgrading will be over- 
joyed to learn that SofRogik is including a 
converter that will let you load your 
Pro Page layouls into PageStream. 

UPDATED 

Recent betas are looking very complete, 
and you should see the £395 package on 
shelves soon 

Finally. Martin Taillefer. who recertify loti 
his job as a software engineer al 
Commodore to go work for 3DO, (old me 
that he's hard at work on an updated ver- 
sion ol the TurboText text editor for release 


by Oxxi early (Ns summer. 

The fully-configurable editor was Iasi 
updated in 1 991 , and INOVAironics' Edc' 
and ASDG s updated CygnusED Pro have 
threatened to usurp its position as the 
Amiga's premier texl editor Tailrefer like . 
good challenge, though, and plans tc 
pack lots of new leatures into this 
version. 

IE's too early to list all Ihe features, turf 
among the new capabilities will be mull 
level Undo, faster screen opcralion, and 
this is revolutionary - the ability to use 
wildcards not only in search strings but 
replace strings as well! Look for a hands- 
on preview in an upcoming inslalment Q r

Sources close to Digital Creations (of

pany have switched to development for 
IBM-compatibles; we may still see 
Brilliance 2,0, which is reportedly largely 


complete, though. J he final bit of bad 
news hasn't been publicly confirmed, but 
was reported in the ViewPort on-line 
magazine and verified by a source within 
Commodore Apparently development of 
the A A A chip set has been suspended 
for the time being due to the costs associ- 
ated with continued prototyping and 
development. 

There arc reports that Commodore 
have been experimenting WLth a proto- 
type Amiga that uses an off-the-shelf 
Cirrus Super VGA graphics processor 
instead. 

This isn't as far-fetched as it sounds: 


Commodore has said it's focusing oi 
CD32 now, and the AAA chipseL is n 
high-end (read ^expensive 1 ') for a garrr 
machine, 

Also, since Commodore has been talk- 1 
ing about Rise Aminas running Windova 
N1 as j possible future, it would make 
sense to go with industry standard part^ 

AAA was revolutionary when it wa* 
first announced in mid-]990 (yes, it's bw- 
m development for over four year?!), he. 
at this point Commodore can find off-tht 
shelf parts that wilt allow them to create i 
superior graphics machine at a Iowl' 
price than a proprietary design.

■ COMM ENT 



y now most readers of the February issue of 
Arfljiffj Ctmputmg will have realihe-d that The 
Publisher CoverDisk suffer from a few prob- 
lem The reed tor a second floppy drive, and the pro- 
gram's demands on system resources have Left many users 
bewildered and feeling cheated. 

Though we admit to a few errors on Our part and hold 
our hands up Lo inadvertently not stating the program's 
requirements clearly enough, we have been reviewing the 
whole CoverDisk situation in an effort to avoid die same 
‘w’irt nictK/k-ijp happening Ln future. 

Those of you who have contacted us concerning The 
Publisher will hjvc already heard this but for everyone 
else's benefit, we'd like to offer our apologies. The 
Publisher was not what our readers expected it to be and 
we are straining to ensure that this sort of tiling never hap- 
pens again. 

Problem is, it was the pressure from readers which led 
us to use The Publisher in the first place. Survey results, 
for example, indicate that almost MO per eenl of you ,ire 
interested in DTP, and a huge number of survey respon- 
dents indicated the supreme importance they place on 
CoverDisks when considering which magazine to buy . 

In addition, the replies we received suggested that a 
sizeable proportion of readers [almost SO per cent) bad 
13Mb RAM or more and that just about every one of you 
had either a second floppy or a hard drive. 

Reader surveys, partly because only a fraction of read- 
ers answer them, are never an entirely accurate reflection 
of the market, but they are often the only hard evidence 
we have for our readers' preferences and level of 
equipment. 

U is an accepted faet of life in the Amiga magazine 
world these days that if you don't give the readers some 
free commercial software, they'll buy the competition 
more or less no matter what articles, features, and reviews 
are tt> be found in that issue of Lhe magazine. 

During the middle of Lasl year, ivhen if became appar- 
ent that the supply of good CoverDisk software was run- 
ning low, we were told, informally, that at Least one other 
major Amiga magazine would welcome the chance to stop 
using commercial software altogether. 

However, without the agreement of all publishers con- 
cerned it is impossible to impose this sort of voluntary 
moratorium. 

Fr^rn Eht/ industry's point of view, such a move is well 
overdue. For every CoverDisk containing a tree graphics 
package, one potential high street or mail order sale is lost, 
and if the freebie craze continues we can expect to see the 
Amiga serious software market strangled much more 
effectively than piracy could ever hope to affect games 
software 

This legal distribution of high quality commercial soft- 
ware for next to nothing is, of course, a bonanza for the 


The AC team 


A disk 
too farv 


The Publisher: stupid 
mistake or the inevitable 
result of disk-mania? 

readers, but if it kills the Amiga's still very healthy produc- 
ts LLv market by flooding it with gratis goodies we, and 
you, will suffer jn the long run, 

For the moment, diene is little prospect nf the CoverDisk 
War letting up. as ail Amiga magazines compete as fiercely 
as they can for readers, but as long as intense competition is 
married to over-reaching expectations, CoverDisks will con- 
tinue to pose a problem. 

Many of the packages given away last year - and this 
includes those of our major competitors - were advanced 
packages requiring extra RAM, a hard drive, or other hard- 
ware to run property. 

GIVEAWAYS 

Since the initial flood ot giveaways, programs which run 
on an anc-xpanded I Mb Amiga have become harder to find, 
and those which step forward as candidates are often of 
limited appeal 

This means that the programs most users could benefit 
from are not of as much interest to most readers as those 
which most readers wouldn't be able to utilise because of 
hardware requirements. Confusing, perhaps, hot a fact of 
life we have had to live with. 

Now that the situation has come to a head with The 
Publisher, however, we can ignore the paradox no longer. 
In future, we will strive to find software which must or all 
of our users can run without having lo upgrade their 
machines. 

ll this means we can't at times find a package which 
matches the requirements of our readers (powerful and 
interesting to use, but capable nf running on a standard 
1Mb Amiga) you may find that no major freebie is included 



with some CoverDisks. 

When this Leads you to buy another Amiga magazuH 
or not to bother at all that month, we hope the knowledge 
that you, not we, govern CoverDisk policy will ten : 
your disappointment. 


A tribute 



Brian Redhead, one of 
Britain's most popular and 
respected journalists, died 
on January 23 after a short 
illness. He was only £4 
years old, and tor 1b years 
had been the voice of Radio 
4's Today programme which so many of us treasured as 
our only friend in the morning traffic jam. 

We can say nothing thal has not already bean said in 
the numerous tributes and obituaries which have 
appeared for Mr Redhead since his untimely death. be' 
his loss was one which British journalism, under Ihreal 
from tabloid excesses, privacy laws, and a censorious 
public and governmental mood, coufc lit afford. 

He, his voice, his humanity, and his shining example 
of integrity and honesty will be sorely missed

advanced features. In the following sec- 
tion we will explain how lo personalise 
your copy of Kind Words 3, print docu- 
ments and alter the page style. 

Personalising Kind Words 3 as a simple 
matter of selecting the Preference? option 
in the Extras menu. From here you can 
toggle the rulers on and off, change the 
amount of colours Available and instruct 
the program to save at regular intervals. 

Using the Preferences is simple and 
requires little explanation, Remember,

As mentioned earlier. Kind Words 3 is 
not just a word processor, it can also han- 
dle picture files IFFs. which can be 
manipulated in various ways and printed 
out, 

Jn the Docs drawer there is a sample 
picture entitled hippy, iffpicture which we 
can toad into our Poem document. From 
the L Lj lilies menu select Place Picture and 
from the file requester select the image 
and then click on Place. You will then be 
presented with the Picture Requester. 

Ihis allows s ou to change certain 
effects when the picture is placed in the 
document. Text Flow specifics how text 
fits around it - None will place the picture 
directly over text, Vertical will force text to 
How straight down white Contour will 
mould it around the image, 

Colour 0 indicates whether or not you 
want the background colour to L>c trans- 
parent or opaque and the Stand Off 
dictates how densely the text flows around 
the picture. 

When the image is loaded ft will use 
the palette used by Kind Words 3 but you 
cat instruct it to use its own by clicking in 
the Use Pic's Palette box. However, this 
will alter the colours employed by the pro- 
gram and may produce- an undesired 
effect. 

Once you arc happy with the picture 
settings click on the OK button, the pic- 
ture will toed showing a cartoon man 
leaning against a wall. On each comer of 
the picture box are drag points. Pulling 
these will alter the dimensions of the box 
and either shrink or expand the picture. 

Holding Shift down while moving the 
drag boxes will result in the picture being 
-iced proportionally If you are unhappy 
with the original settings simply double- 
click on the picture and the Picture 
Requester will reappear, 

Fortunate 

The default page settings used by 
Kind Words 3 might not always be what 
vo u want- How fortunate it j* then that 
the program offers the ability to totally 
define your own pages. To enable page 
editing select Page Layout from the 
Document menu, A window will appear 
with various options for changing the 
page size and the margin widths* 

To select a new page size simply click 
on Hu 1 appropriate button. If the dimen- 
sions you want are not available as a 
default you can click on Custom and enter 
your own values. The margins, header 
and footer can also be altered by typing ill 
the required values in the boxes When 
you print out your document the margins 
dictate how snug to the edges of Lhe page 
the text is. 

The default measurement format for 
the Page Layout option is in inches but 
you can change it to centimetres by click- 
ing on the Measure button.

Kind Word s 3 comes with a help facility 
which explains the program functions in 
detail You can call up the help mode by 
selecting Help from the Extras menu. 
Simply select the topic you want more 
information on. 

Once you are happy with the presenta- 
tion of your document you can go about 
printing it Kind Words 3 makes printing 


your document a fairly straightforward 
procedure. 

To get to the [Vint Document requester 
select Print from the Project menu. The 
requester may look fairly daunting but it 
does cater for all types of printing and can 
force even a 4-pin dot matrix printer to 
produce some pretty spectacula r results. 

However, the best advice for produc- 


ing good quality printouts is to experi- 
ment with the Print Document settings 
until you are happy with the results. 

To explain in-depth about the printer 
options would take too long, but you'll 
haw noticed a brief description of each 
function in its own box on the previous 
pages, which should hi-lp you to produce 
some excellent results on paper.

CliVa is a utility' program that allows you to create a gadget- 
controlled interface from which you can load programs, copy 
disks and perform all manner of operations previously only 
accessible via the Shell. 

You will find the CliVa program on disk 2. Open up the 
CliVa drawer and inside you will see three files CliVa, 
Example and CliVa.Doc. CliVa. D ol- has been written by the 
author and explain* how to write CliVa config files. As an idea 
or just what is possible with this program, double-flick with 
the mouse on the Example tile. 

When the Example has loaded you will be presented with 
Ihe CliVa interface along with a senes of gadgets, by clicking 
on the gadgets you will be able to perform various tasks such 
as viewing CliVa.Doc and viewing the actual Example config, 

If you click on the Next gadget a new page will appear with 
a sol of different gadgets which are fairly self-explanatory. The 
Spare gadgets are purely there tor cosmetic reasons and will 
perform no action when clicked, 

6v holding down the right mouse button at the top of the 
CliVa display you will be prevented with a Project menu. You 
can flip between pages by selecting Previous Page and Next 
Pageant! shrink the window out of sight by clicking on tconify. 

But the most powerful option in the Project menu is Modify. 
By selecting this nnd then clicking on a gadget you can exiit the 


command that was attached to ii in the con fig tile. As an 
example, select Modify and then click on the View CliVa 
Instructions gadget. An edit requester will appear with the 
act miU a im i iwi nd th i s gad get uses - c: m mpp sysLeliva /e I lva.J< k . 

What this command effectively does is call MMPF (a text 
viewer) from the C directory and display the CliVa.Doc, Don't 
worry how nr why it works as we have provided extensive 
explanation of the most widely used commands in CliVa. To 
turn the Modify function off a El you need to do is select it again 
from the Project menu. 

In order to gain experience at creating CliVa config files IPs 
best you take a look at the Example. config. Load up the Ed text 
editor from your Workbench disk and from Ed load up the 
Example. config which can be found in the CliVa drawer on 
your Attugi r Computing CoverDisk. 

Now all you need to do Is study the print out of the config 
file on these disk pages and locate the appropriate explanation 
In the commands summary * 

Apparently, CliVa does work on WBl.3 but needs 
Utility. library, which we could not locate. If in future we come 
across this library' we will include it on the CoverDfek. 

To load up your CliVa config files from Shell type in' diva 
I pathname} /| CliVa config rameh And turn the page for a 
commands summary. 


Copying CliVa 

It you plan to copy CliVa lo a hard drive nr floppy disk you 
will need to make . sum' thdl you copy the files across that 
CliVa uses. These aie:

Any tiles in the CliVa drawer should also be copied.

COVE RDISKI 


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


Hew readers may have difficulties 
using our CoverDisk, so we have 
"•eluded 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. One 


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 


:.opy the entire CoverDisk,, load up your 
rk bench disk, then either click, once on the 
ZoverDisk icon and select Duplicate, or select Copy 
i ’ the Workbench menu, or open CLI /Shell and 
type* 


DlSKtfifT FIT DU DFft: TD 3F0; 

Wher prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source 
Jisk) in dfO; and be ready to replace it with your 
blank disk {the destination disk). Follow the Amiga's 
■• -screen prompts until rhe disk copy is completed.. 
Now put rhe original away in a safe place and use 
yogr backup. 



Copying individual files 


f ou might at some point want to copy a single program 
bom d CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or 
even your hard drive. 

To do this you'll need the COPY command. As most 
“ jverDisk programs are stashed away in their own direc- 
tories, the quickest way to copy a program is to copy the 
.‘.-mle directory at once. Use the command: 

CC*P T td I r Pi tor jf ) T8 tnevdisfcl ALL 

where {directory} is the full pathname of the directory 
you wish to copy, and [newdisk} is the name of the disk 
and directory into which it will he copied. 

p or example, if you wanted to copy a utility called 
■ RED from CoverDisk 27 r s Utilities drawer to a directory 
a ied FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type; 

EOPT [(Hi II D I SCi? : If T 1 Lift ESS FI Ef T$ HCHKBEICHl . 3 JIKD ILL 

Alternatively, you can dick once on the FRED directory 
an and drag it across to the new disk's window. This 
Has (he advantage of creating a new directory for you 
and copying the icon as wefl. 

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

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



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


De-archiving 

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

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

Say we have archived a program called FR£D, You 
simply double click on FfiCD's icon, and will be asked if 
you have a blank, disk ready to dearchrve to. Type "y^ 
or "n" accordingly. 

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

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

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

Workbench 3 

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

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

I r you cdH-t -i brief glance over the 
development of the (.'omputer game 
in the past five years, It is obvious that 
we are reaching a watershed which could 
see the end of video games as we know 
them. 

Though the chart toppers of today are 
still recognisablv descendants of the origi- 
nal Space Invaders game, the next decade of 
development is likely to push back the 
boundaries of what is possible until 21st 
Century games resemble science- fiction 
more than reality. 

The advent of CD-ROM, new super-fast 
processors, and early experiments with vir- 
tual reality promise a leap in technology 
which is more revolutionary than evolu- 
tionary,. and the benefits could be felt in lew 
than five years. 

Pick up almost any computer game you 
care to mention and it will follow certain 
basic principles The action takes place in, an 
obviously synthetic 2D world, regardless of 
whether or not the game 1 sinuiUtes 3D (the 


distinction in an important one). All Interac- 
tion Is via the relatively crude mouse or joy- 
stick device, and all situations which might 
crop up in the game have been pro- 
grammed in advance and can't easily he 
changed. 

Only sports and flight simulators cater 
for human responses which change the way 
the game actually plays, and even then only 
in a limited sense. 



Ten years from now, however, a "game" 
might bo nothing more than a louiteh 
sketched out world in winch the program- 
mer design* the parameters for the* sort of 
obstacles one might meet, and the player, 
bv his or her actions, determines which 
obstacles or challenges will crop up. 

Such open-tmded game design, a "vir- 
tual world" with or without live 3D head- 
sets, has been the goal of games 
programmers for years, as programs such 
as Elite and L'ltima Underworld show. 


Technology has never afforded the games 
industry a machine powerful enough yet 
cheap enough to carry this sort of entertain- 
ment to the public, but the moment for such 



We are convinced that 
digital media will change

a development isn't far off. 

Progress in the fields of Rise chip tech- 
nology, artificial Intelligence and alternative 
input devices mean that in ten years we 
could all be wearing body suits while 
standing in the middle of the living room 
with a headset tsJi, the latter doing its lev* I 
best to convince us wt ,r re deep in the mon- 
sters labyrinth. 

The damage this could cause to orna 
ments and domestic pets as Dad - blinded 
to the real world - takes out another imagu 
nary one with his broadsword doesn't bear 
thinking about, but fun levels should 
rocket. 

For the moment we are stuck with = 
halfway house, CD-ROM games which 
include oodles of high-tech 3D rendered 
imagery {Labyrinth and Seventh Guest 
spring to mind) but which am held back bv 
their linear natures. 

Current home micros arc nowhere near 
powerful enough to create tlmi-e 3D worlds 
in real time, so the player is forced L

edge of games development and

Gremlin 

At Gremlin Graphics Ihe subjecl of gaming in the 2 1st 
Cenlury isn't a topic taken licfhlly. Such is the commit- 
ment ot managing director. Ian Stewart. that he has 
invested in Iwo Silicon Graphics Indigo machines. 

To explore Ihe parameters and to discover exactly 
what can be done within the structure of a game on the 
Indigos. Gremlin have also taken on the skills of iwo full- 
time 3D modellers 

5yd Frgnkim and David Lewis, working with SGI 
machines, spend the majority of their lime rendering 
images and animations tor future projects, 

When we spoke Co David he was working on some 
sprites for a car game (which is being kept under wraps), 
and Syd had just finished converting an intro sequence 
forZool on the CD32, 

As Syd explained: "The Zoo! intro was something I'd 
done some time ago on ihe Indigo. When the CD32 came

Both of itie 3D modeller at Gremlin have an obvious 


leaning towards creating games teat feature tee type ol 
graphical reality teat the Silicon Graphics machines are 
capable of. 

However, Gremlin remain adamant about Ihe most 
important aspect of a successful litie. and David Illus- 
trates the point: 

"At the moment it seems that gameplay is giving way 
to Fancy graphics. In tee near future people will have go! 
used lo this standard: of display and insist on a fusion of 
the two." 

TECHNOLOGY 

David sees CDs as a major medium for storing infor- 
mation. but envisages teat areas of technology will split 
. "Games on a screen should graphics aside, slay the 
same, but now' interactive entertainment like Peter 
Gabriel's Xplora 1 CD will break off and create a whole 
new market."

opment stage. 

The second, Nintendo's Project Reality 
console, is due for an appearance in arcades 
Hiss year, but retail release is sliil not slahxf 
until late in 1995. 

froth machines have beet designed from 
the ground up to pack enough power for 
real-time 3D rendering, and many an 
Inflated claim is being made on both sides 
as the hyp? war grinds into gear. 

PROTOTYPE 

Neither company have been able to 
demonstrate games running on prototype 
machines as yet, hut the pedigrees which 
both Project Reality and PS-X can call upon 
are impressive. 

Nintendo's Project Reality is a joint 
project in conjunction with Silicon 
Graphics (SGI), whose lead in the world of 
super-powerful 3D graphics machines is 
undisputed. 

Using a hybrid of the R4P00 Rise chip 
found in the SGE mac hint's which rendered 
Terminator 2 special effects. Project Reality 
promises 100 mips (five times as fast as a 
65H40] and 100 M flops to generate complex 
shaded 3D scenes in real time. 

In keeping with these hyperbolic assur- 
ances, Sony t laim tfwi r I *>X am sole will be 
capable of 500,000 Gouraud -shaded 
polygons per second. At 20,000 
per frame in PAL mode this 
is enough to generate and 
animate a huge 3D 
object such as a tyran- 
nosaurus or a com- 
plete landscape in 

Hf M 


full smooth 25 frames per second (the sinir 
speed as a video or TV program). T he chips

those used in Project Reality. A cejitml pro- 
cessor is aided by a series of ASK s (applica-

circuits) handling ■-prile j w i . polygon move- 
ment, sound, and so tm in much the same 
way as the Amiga's custom chips (which 
we'll have to call ASICs now, 1 suppose) 
have for nine Wars, 

In combination with hugely fast data 
buses, the multi-chip line up should leave 
laws dragging the Hcxubw rds wherever it 
is shown to the public. 

So where will thus leave the video game 
lor "'gam«vidts> ,r as some are now calling 
itj? Programmers have moved from 
machine to machine for years in search of 
the most powerful 3D processing power, so 
when faced with systems which can create 
almost photo-realistic games in real time 
they'll jump on the bandwagon till its aides 
collapse, 

Pv(«- mainstream computer such as the 
Amiga or PC will be able to compete with 
dedicated ti4-bii consoles unless they use 
huge Rise-based central processors, but 
even then the general purpose machines 
will lack dedicated ASICs. If Sony 
and Nintendo manage 





Itepdtcs machines are creating will probably never see

dubiously low planned price ot $251), the 
traditional games market will see a squeeze 
to make Some the Hedgehog look 5 ike a 
gentle hug, 

Leading L \ig t : games such as Labyrinth 
on CD32 and Seventh Guest on the PC are 
forced to compromise playability to achieve 
their superb 3P graphics, but PS-X and 
Project Reality threaten to remove the need 
for fudges- 

All movement in Seventh Guest, for 
example, is limited to whether or not the 
programmers included a pre- rendered ani- 
mal ion for that movement and if not you 
can forget it, Tire result is a linear game 
which becomes more and more tedious as 
your admiration for the graphics ivea rs off, 

REALISTIC 

A hit like those old text adventures, in 
fact. Remember them? How many times 
did you type "get sword" only to be told J, l 
don't know that word' 1 ? Well, Seventh 
Guest is the modem equi valent. 

By giving tht> new consoles a 3D map of 
the game world and enough bitmap tex- 
tures to create a realistic look, tire program- 
mers can let players just render their own 
adventures as they go along. Playability 
and presentation will at last begin fc> work 
together instead of competing for room on 
the disk. 

To achieve this explosion in 3D graph- 
ics, software companies who up until now 
have relied heavily on HP.iint and other 2D 
art packages have been forced to cal I in the 
professionals, and this has increasingly 
meant the use Lit SGS machines and wit- 
ware from one of Silicon Graphics's partner 
companies 

Wavefront, Alias, and Softimage have all 
developed new versions of packages 
already much used by the film and l'\ 
industries, tailoring them lo the specific 
needs of the games programmer.

Electronic Arts 


Looking into the future. EA producer Kevin Buckner believes 
nuany of the new technologies will play a huge role. Technologies 
such as multi-channel 3D sound will provide a good area tor 
development Cannes hava progressed visually, presenting stun- 
ning 3D graphics 

Electronic Arts, see a similar improvement in aural technolo- 
gies providing the player with ime spatial sound with reflection 
and absorption properties, thus exactly modelling the acoustics of 
any given environment 

At the moment virtual reality technology seems to be split so 
per cent hardware to 20 per cent software and Electronic Arts see 
plenty of scope for improvement in the software department. 

The multi-player aspect ol a game can transform something 
from being good to mind-blowing and Kevin Buckner realises that 
the main problem with most attempts is that the single- player 
game is designed first and only then is Ihe multi-player support 
added. 

For the mgfo-player aspect ol a game to truly succeed it needs 
to be fuWy designed and must receive the same amount of atten- 
tion as the single-player version. 

Electronic Ails see the future erf vaioe recognition technologies 
as having great potential lor them. They see Ihe keyboard as 
becoming less involved and Ihe way forward being to slap a 
microphone mlo ihe machine, add voice recognition to the hard- 
ware spec and tie this in with a multi-player feature 

Imagine the sort of game where you are stalking corridors and 


ca n hear your partner shouting for help in the distance. As you get 
closer, his screams get louder - did that scream come from the left 
or right? 

Electronic Arts intend to make lull use of new technologies, 
and promise pregf&ss in visual technologies such as the VR hel- 
met, larger, flatter screens, holograms and home theatre, and in 
tactile technologies, for instance. VR body suite and artificial 
motion. 

Headway will also be made in aural technology, in particular, 
voice recognition and acoustic environment modelling. 

When asked whelher increased development costs would force 
EA to play sale, they slate lhat it is crucial for them that they don i 
adopt a defensive or reactive mentality and that a cutting edge 
industry needs cutting edge thinkers and do-ers. 

Bearing this in mind they intend to be more careful with their 
selection process, ensuring that they pick winners. This will mean 
having to be tar more willing lo kill an idea when it looks like going 
astray rather than Irying to make a gem out erf a dull stone, 

As !□ whether the future will see gameplay sacrificed at the 
expense of graphics and sound. Electronic Arts believe this is cru- 
cial to keep effects and gameptey in balance, and lhat one without 
the other results in a pedr product. 

With more and more technologies coming on stream and 
more and more expertise coming info the industry Electronic Arts 
see the future as being a bright one, and that we are set for a fun 
end to the century. 


Fit sample, rather than create a bmad- 
cast-quality iin.-igv, live software enables the 
programmer la decide how many polygons 
a some can contain, given the power of the 
machine it will eventually run on, and pro- 
duce graphics which can be giLarant**ed to 
animate Jt the correct frame rate. 

Huge 3D sequences, such as those used 
in Psygnosis's Microcosm, can also be gen- 
erated with an exact "travelling matte" of 
the landscape, which can he used by pm- 
gra rumens ire a collision detector, In ibis

dreds of mips of pure processing power, 
can produce graphics many times faster

Ocean Software 


At present. Stephen Hey o! the Manchester-based software com- 
pany can't see even with massive improvements in the hardware 
that anything particirfahy now will happen because there are only a 
Unite number of game genres. 

Ocean believe the way toward Is via multi-player communica-

th inking its world has changed radically, the 
technology never having been available. 
The day is in sight, however, when that 
am id change, and ihe prospect of stepping 
freely between one world and another, 
though exciting, is also a little? worrying.. 

It is difficult to see how the Amiga's part 
in the future of games will develop. As one 
of the most important players in the devel- 
opment of the computer game, the Amiga 
has already pLayed a vital part, but if it is to 
continue at the leading edge it must bon sme 
more powerful. 

Later ihLv year, the true 24-bit AAA chip 
S 0 ( should he launched as the basis of a new 
Amiga, possibly powered by Motorola's 64- 
bit Rise PowerPC chip, The combi nation 
will be a powerful one and there is no rea- 
son why a new Commodore imde could 
not make use of this vast increase in capa- 
bility. 

Running at 66MHz with a big brother 
planned to run at 120MHz, the PowerPC 
chip will be as cheap, if not cheaper, than 
the current 680x0, but many times faster, 
and is already due to appear in both the 
A 51)00 rind a new range of Macintosh 
machines. Then? is no reason apart from 
lack of marketing muscle and devel- 
opment funds, then, that 
Commodore couldn't use the 
PowerPC/ AAA combina- 
tion as the basis for a con- 
sole to match Sony, 
Atari,, and the rest. 

Virtual reality 
games running on a 
new super- Amiga? 
Mow there'® a 
thought, eh?

tly the same way as real people - a 
•wmingly simple consideration which lends 
b hnished preduct an air of believability

laser scanners are also being used by

Models from real world objects. To create a 

' Rolls Royce exact in every detail and

- : d !- r the laser build a point-by-point map 
it which the Alias software then inter- 
prets. 

Scanner? sizes vary from shoebox to six

■termed then made to move with the motion 
Mmpk-r, resulting in breathtaking realism.

Combine tliis with a digitised 3D facial

Mil 

£ '*'neral trends of thought in the games 
r»r !-cn, today point towards the interactive 
Multi-player game as the w r ay forward, a 
prne in which the gamepUy is supplied by 


took part, 

By the turn of the century, using power 
gloves, headsets, and perhaps even body 
suits, we humans will be providing the 
game, and it will be the computer which is 
the passive partner, 

Virtual reality, as discussed more than 
once in recent issues of AC, may be an exci t- 
ing new technology, particularly in the 
games scene, but it also brings with it certain 
medical and social worries. 

The link between our senses ajid our state 
of mind is acutely sensitive, and to disturb it 
for long period* ot time might cause major 
problems. 

Ev idence for the damage you can do by 
massing too much in this department is 
apparent through the effects of sensory 
deprivation experiments, where trauma and 
serious psycho- soma tic side effects are the 
result if nature's only bridge between the 
human mind and its cnviremmcnt Ls broken. 

Carnes which contain graphics and sound 
SO realistic as to be indistinguishable from the 
real world pose questions of their own. Man 
has never been able to completely fool the 
brain into 


the human players and the stunning graph- 
ics by their powerful 3D computers. In 
other words, the wheel will turn full t'-in/le. 

In the beginning, the computer 
game revolution was castigated as 
an introverted solo pursuit 
w r hich robbed children of 
the play experience and 
of social intercourse- 
computers provided 
the game and the 
children sinv 


Annthrr Wameffonl 
frnnTT to the 

fWiy virtual game 



r^chine are merely convensions of existing tilles, As programmers 
< i^ofe the technology further, increasing steps are made to use il 
I? the full potential, In the eyes ol Ocean, il's not so much 'playing 
but more about becoming acquainted with the technology 
becoming adventurous. 

White the company hasn't exactly got the besl track record tor 
kayablq and original games, with their myriad ot licensed-based 
:■ irformers and other formula-driven work, the likes ot TFX and 


Intemo are rapkfly expanding their gaming portfolio, 
aiephen Hey believes many new CD titles have concentrated 
solely on the presentation aspects and lhal playability seams to 
have been added afterwards. 

To beckon in lha next generation requires a rebalancing of this 
problem so that the traditional games that we know and love today 
will become the games of yesterday that can be nostalgically 
remembered and not yea moo for.

DIRECTORIES 

Most people will probably use LT-IArc 
from within a directory utility like 
Directory Opus nr DLskMaster which allow 
the user to select fites and directories to 
archive at the touch of a mouse button. 
LH Arc files are saved with a file extension 
of .feh or ,lha- Mv archiver of preference is 
Liu by Stefan Bo berg. 

There are several other archiving pro- 


into either category, so 111 deal with them 
last. But first, archivers.,. 

We in the Amiga world are very fortu- 
nate lo have such an enormous amount of 
PD software available to lls. Comparing (he 
amount ul PD to owners of Amigas, there 
are probably more PD programs written 
per head dun for any other machine. 

Tli is puts us in the enviable position of 
being abfe to find almost any type of pro- 
gram, including archivers, for free (or a 
minimal shareware fee] hirst up in nur list 
are the L3 TArc family of programs. 

LH Are is probably the single most popu- 
lar format for archiving files on the Amiga. 
It appears in several forms including 
LHAre, 1 J. and Lha, all written by different 
authors. This. Like nearly all of the archiving 
programs, is designed to be used freon the 
Shell, which rather limits its friendliness, 
although you can get Workbench front- 
ends for LHAre which cut out most of the 
work. 


[This was the

prams available for the Amiga, these 
include Arc, Zoo, Zip and compress files, 
Arc and Zoo have pretty much been left 
behind now, and are very infrequently seen 
these days. 

Zip for PKZip, .is they are sometimes 
known) files are more common on the PC, 
where they are the standard format If you 
intend giving someone something fora PC, 
it is probably bvst to archive it in a Zip file 
rather than LHArc it 

Compress is a Unix tile compressor that 
you will probably only use if you have a 
modem and an internet account When you 
decompress a compress file iconfusing isn't 
it?) it usually overwrites Hie original archive, 
so make sure that, if you want to keep it, 
you have a copy of the original archive 
somewhere else. 

Arc files are saved with a file extension of 
jrc. Zoo files with .zoo, Zap files with .zip, 
and compress files with an extension of ,Z. 


How to compress 


The usual method for compression, especially in archivers, 
is one of redundancy removal tf you take a long sentence 
that repeats itself over and over and over you will see that it 
can be compressed neatly by representing the repetitions 
with a code and putting the key for the code somewhere in 
the archive file. Thus, as an example, this paragraph cam- 
pressed would look something like this; 


Encoding, Faxes and IFF files use this method to keep tiles 
as small as possible, ft works like this. Take a file that is 
mixture of zeros and ones like so:

Fun Length encoding changes the fife from being zeno : 
and ones and puts a code in their place- it ? s a very simp •: 
code, it just gives whether the sequence should be zero c- 
one and how long for; 


Now this example doesn't work very well because it Is 
loo short a piece of text, but the first paragraph is 393 char- 
acters and the second is 384. Over a much larger file - this 
article for Instance - the amount of compression can toe 
greatly improved. 

The other main method is known as RLE or Run Length 




The first paragraph gomes out as £13 characters, while 
the second comes out at 87, A massive improvement 
However, most files arenT as easy as that. 


If you're interested in crouching floppies., 
you can get a program called DM5 (or Disk 
Masher System). 1 his Likes ,i floppy and 
compresses il track-by-track to another loca- 
tion, if. your hand drive, or RAM:. 

You can't use fhiw archive as it stands 
though; you lived Lo decompress it back to 
floppy. DMS expects a disk (it doesn't care 
whether ur not it is formatted) in dflb t ind 
proceeds to decompress, Lrack-by- track 
again, unto that floppy. DMS files are saved 
with a file extension of , DM5, 

And vi on to compressors, The first thing 
(lia! should be pointed out about compres- 
5015 is that they don't usually compress files 
as much as archivers do However, 
ivhat you lose in disk space you gain in 
functionality, 

there arc two commercial offerings; the 


old but much-used Power Packer 

Professional and the new- kid on the block. 
Disk Expander Actually, when 3 say new 
kid on the block, it's not strictly true Disk 
Expander is v2 of a shareware piece of soft- 
ware called EPU. 

EFU (and [Disk Expander) takes advan- 
tage of a system of compression libraries 
called XPK libraries. Each of these libraries 
has g different forte. One might compress 
and decompress really quickly, hut offer rel- 
atively poor compression rates, while 
another might take a while to compress, but 
give outstanding compression results. 

The advantage of this system is immedi- 
ately apparent You sfart with a control pro- 
gram that watches for files being written to 
or read from the disk and thon applies the 
compression algorithm the user has chosen

What is Jpeg? 


The Jpeg graphics file format ns named after its creators, the Joint Photographic Experts 
Group, This is how it works, The Jpeg compression algorithm takes advantage of the fact 
that the human eye can’t distinguish between as many values of hue, saturation and 
brightness as a 24-brt display, and "smooths' shades together resuliing in a ampler file. 

It fien uses olher dala compression methods la further reduce the size of the file. 
Because saving a file as a Jpeg means that the original file is modified, line Jpeg image 
will never be the same as the anginal 24-bil file This is known as "lossy" compressroiv 

However, depending on the amount of compression, the differences between She origi- 
nal and the Jpeg will almost certainly be too small to notice. 


for files on that disk, It you decide that the 
compression format doesn't give you the 
results you wanted in terms of time saved or 
f i lesiJL', then all you need do is switch to a 
different compression library. If the author 
of a compression library brings? out a new 
version, that is all you need update, not the 
whole program, 

PowcrPacker doesn't look at your disk 
except when reading files, [f the file is a pro- 
gram, then Power Packer automatically 
decrunches it on the fly; the only thing you 
might notice about using a powerpaeked file 
is that the moose pointer, nr screen, jiggles 
and displays strange colours while loading. 
This is perfectly normal and ii a teal u re of 
Power Packer to show it is working. 

If your FowerFatked file is nof a pro- 
gram, but data, such as a DTP file or a pic- 
ture, then you will require some extra 
software to read that file. If the file is text, a 
Standard picture or animation, then the sup- 
plied PPMore, PPShow and PPAnim will 
display it with no trouble- 

DAXA FILES 

Otherwise you will need a program called 
FP {or Power Packer Pateher), which 
decrunches data files as they are being 
loaded in the same way that PowerFacker 
does when loading a program. 

You can also find a shareware program in 
public domain libraries called PowerData, 
This solves a problem with Power Packer 
and changes it into something more like disk 
expander, The problem with PowerFacker is 
that you pack a Hie- Fine, 

Then you load it into a paint package or 
whatever, and edit it. Then you save it back 
out The file is no longer packed because 
PowcrPacker doesn't get called to recotn- 
press the file. This is exactly what 
FowerData does. When you save a file that 
was PowerFacked. Power Data jumps in and 
recompresses 1 1 on. the fly. 

PowerFacker also comes as a shareware 
package with some of the Professional ver- 
sion's features removed, bur as it only costs 
around £15, why not get the Full version? 
There are plenty of other shareware or pub- 


lic domain compressor programs around 




best- known of which is probably Impioder 

Jy 4 


There is a package that doesn't real! 
into either category, and also some prografl 
that you wouldn't (him k of as tile compfgj 
sion utilities They all have to do wjl 
graphics. 

Pegger is an American product desi 
to watch over your hard drive for Ti 
Hr. lines ton si, 24-bil IFF or Kamb picture- 
when it sees one being written it auto 
colly catches it and converts it to Jpeg h * 
Similarly, when a program that can't 
malLy load Jpeg images, like Deluxe P. 
asks for an image that Pegger has c 
pressed, It converts the Jpeg image back 
a Toaster framestore, an IFF or Hamfl pi- 
er a DCTV 3 or -I bitplane image 

This process could also be achieved if \ 
have a program called tic-nd£T, or you u-* 
version of ADPro that comes with a prog; 
called Sentry. Both these programs can hr 
to guard a directory or disk, looking for 
to be written. If they see something then 
too can convert the image to Jpeg to 
space. However, they won't convert ?*i 
image back to IFF if a program like Dclu* 
Paint tries to load one of the 
converted files.

■GENLOCKS 



R ight from the very start the 
Amiga was a computer built 
with video in mind. In addition 
to providing a revolutionary graphics 
box, the Amiga's designers took care to 
ensure that it could he fairly ea.sil!y inter- 
faced with video equipment and provide 
suitable outputs for conversion to various 
standard video formats 

This meant that any graphics or anima- 
tions produced with paint, animation, 3D 
or video titling software could easily be 
recorded to videotape for posterity, But 
not always as easily as you might 
imagine, 

For instance,, while simply recording 
the Amiga's graphics to tape can be quite 
easily accomplished by .several models of 
Amiga ifhe Amiga 1200 has both compos- 
ite and RF video outputs, as well as the 
standard KGB port, for example) combin- 
ing graphics and Video Is a more compli- 
cated proposition which cannot be carried 
out directly by any present, or indeed 
past, Amiga. 

Which is a bit of a problem when you 
consider that video titles <and plenty 
other video graphics) are often superim- 
posed directly over video images 
themselves. 

So how is it done? What magic boxes 


make such TV -style visuals possible? 
How do they work, why would you need 
one, and how do you gut the best from ii 
once you have one? These, and more nag- 
ging quest tone, are the subject of this 
month's Survivor's Guide, 

This might surprise you, but you'd be 
wrong if you thought a genlock was a 
piece of hardware you bolt on to your 
Amiga in order to add titles and graphics 
tii vciLir videos. Not entirely wrong, but 
certainly misinformed, 

Genlocking per sc actually refers to the 
process of synchronising one video signal, 
or piece of video equipment, with another 
an absolute requirement if two video 
signals are to be successfully combined or 
mixed together. 

SYNCING 

I he term gen locking derives from 
Generate for General, according to some 
sources) Locking, which describes the 
function of syncing the signals together. 

Genlocking is only half the story 
though, since it A a process called keying 
which actually superimposes the graphics 
over video So we can now sec that a gen- 
lock must perform several different func- 
tions in order to combine video and 
graphics together Genlocks come in a 


wide variety of shapes, siws arid price 
ranges, and they vary in the number of 
different functions thal they can perform, 
but the bottom line U that they all enable 
Amiga graphics to be combined with 
video images - some more successfully 
than others, and with more bells and 
whistles - but combined nonetheless. 

Some genlocks have mixing control* tn 


determine the level at which the Am 
graphics will be mixed over video. Othrfl 
let you adjust the colour, brightness -ird 
contrast of the incoming video signal, 
Some have built-in RGB splitters u 
case you have an older, mono video did 
riser. All have some form of select. -i 
between pure Amiga, pure video srJ 
mixed video /Amiga signals. And all ha - 1

1X3 supply your genlock with the be&t quality video signals 
possible. One important step towards this is to use top 
quality videotapes if you am playing back from a video deck, 


DON’T expect broadcast quality from VKS video equip- 
ment and a cheap genlock. Qualify is usually (though not 
usively} related to cost , 


□ DON'T use unsuitable cables for the video signal. Thess 
include audio or telephone cables, bell wire or even mains 
cable. Use proper video cables (which you can buy Irom specialist 
shops). 

DO keep connections between equipment as short as is 
practical in order to avoid inlroducing unnecessary degra- 
dation or interference.

DO use a genlock with RGB pass-through and an RGB 
monitor if possible - your previews will be clearer and pro- 
ducing Amiga graphics will be easier. 


□ DON'T use very bright colours in your graphics, espe- 
cially bright reds and blues, as these are very prone to 
smeanng, especially in Ihe lower-end composite formats, particu- 
larly VMS. 


won't be possible to superimpose the 
graphics over video images. ait least the 
Amiga will keep cheerfully chugging 
away and you can record graphics direct 
to videotape, even if you can' t overlay 
them - which you might not need to do 
anyway One of the genlock's functions is 


to read the sync pulses which am present 
in all standard video signals and derive a 
new set of timing pulses from them 
which are used instead of the Amiga’s 
own, internally-generated, dock pulses 
These pulses are passed to the Amiga 
via one of the RGB-port connections This 



The genlock connection 



T ^ere are quite a tew different ways that a genlock car be 
incorporated into a video system; if all depends on what 
equipment you have available, and haw you plan on using it 
I came up with two different scenarios quite quickly, though 
she main differences between two of them revolve around the 
■jmber of monitors used, and whether the genlock provided 
an RGB passthrough to the Amiga, 

Figure I shows a fairly basic setup which would probably 
>uit many domestic (end even semi-protessiona!} users. The 
- (reorder can be substituted by a video deck, Laserdisc, 
cdtv or other video device, 

Some cost savings ere made by using just one monitor 
which could even be an ordinary TV), though producing 
graphics may be more difficult since the quality of the 
v-niga's screen display wan t be as good as when an RGB 
monitor is used. 

H's also more difficult Lo see everything that you're doing 
simultaneously A second monitor attached to the VCR output 


will help if you can stretch to ft 

The obvious difference between Figure I and Figure II is fhe 
increased amount of equipment being used. In fed this repre- 
sents jusl Ihe video side of things - I’ve not included sound 
kit (or some synchronising connections) for Ihe sake of sim- 
plicity - but this kind of setup wouldn't be considered unusual 
In a professional video studio. 

By placing the genlock downslream of the vision mixer it is 
possible to superimpose graphics over video while being able 
to add mixes, wipes and other transitions to the video 
unhindered. 

Of course, you could add another monitor to view the 
vision mixer output alone, uncluttered by any overlaid graph- 
ics, but it's not a bad setup as It stands!

GENLOCK 



figure It 


is one ot the genlock's most important 
tasks, because in order for the genlocking 
process to work successfully the Amiga 
had to take its timing signals from the 
genlock, and if these are at all unstable 
then the Amiga may not perform prop- 
erly,. resulting in all kinds of problems. 

Once the Amiga Ls successfully synced 
to the video signal - in other words the 
timing of the lines, fields and frames 
which constitute the Amiga's video dis- 
play coincide exactly with those of t ho 
external video signal - the conditions are 
right for superimposing the graphics, 

In order tor the Amiga's KGB output to 
be mixed with the external video signal it 
must first be encoded to the same format 
as the video ■ which generally means con- 
verting it to either composite, Y/C vr 
even YCrCh (a high-quality broadcast sig- 
nal I format) video formats, depending 
upon (he circumstances, and the genlock. 

INTEGRITY 

In order to maintain the signal's 
integrity various electronic processes far 
beyond the scope ot this guide art- 
applied, but suffice it to say that without 
them the genlock's output wouldn't be 
anywhere as good as it might be. 

Colour phasing, PAL phasing and 
Syncing the colour bursts are three func- 
tions which are necessary to keep every- 
thing on the straight and narrow, 

Some genlocks also automatically dip 
the level of the external video signal, 
which isn't always a desirable thing - 
though it does ensure that ''hot" colours 
such an bright reds anil blues don't eausL- 
the excessive smearing and "noise" prob- 
lem.i that they otherwise might. 

If you use a genlock then you'll know 
that it is usually the first palette colour of 
a graphic, known as colour zero, which is 
replaced by the video signal, leaving any 
non-colour zero content to be added over 
video. This is because the genlock reads 
the Amiga's lit it? video output, as well as 
a signal output called zero detect. 

Every time an instance of colour zero is

its output to be the incoming video signal. 
When no cotour zern is potent the out- 
put \- siv itched to Amiga graphics. By 
-witching between signals extremely 
rapidly, all incidences of colour zero are 
replaced by video, resulting in the non- 
colour zero graphic content appearing in 
be superimposed over the video images. 
This switching system is known as 
keying. 

Incidentally, you might be aware that 
Some genlocks also provide inverse key- 
ing. This is where all colours hut colour 
zero in the Amiga graphics are replaced 
by video, providing a through-the- key- 
hole type of effect, which is why this type 
of keying is sometime* called keyhole 
mode. 

5o we can see that synchronising the 
Amiga to the external video signal and 
then combining its graphics with video 
by keying are the two essential parts of 
genlocking graphics and video. 

But that' i- not necessarily the end of it, 
because some genlocks are created more 


equal than others and have an extra key- 
ing system based on something called 
RGBl (where I stands tor intensity) which, 
like zero detect, is an output from the 
RGB port used to send control signals to 
the genlock, this time based on the inten- 
sity of a colour, rather than specifying just 
whether colour zero is present or not. 

The RCBl keying system is often called 
foreground iruxte (to distinguish it from 
colour zero background mode). RGB! per- 
mits any colour other than colour zero to 
be used selectively as a key colour - for 
instance palette colour one could be 
green, and the keyer circuits in the gen- 
lock could be preset to accept this; as the 
key colour - so that keying would Lake 
place each time such a green was detected 


Buying a genlock 

Unless you re rosily strapped for cash, buy a genlock which has an RGB pass 
through - youl be able to use your Amiga RGB monitor then If you use S-VHS or 
Video 3 then go for a Y/C-capable model for improved picture Quality. 

Don't worry about extras like colour and brightness correction, they aren't 
strictly necessary. Quality is more important than Quantity, though I think you'll 
probably find the ability to fade graphics up and down over video useful - unlike 
the paltry selection of wipes which some genlocks provide.

Get down to 
some creative

by the switching eifeuite (this time driven 
by thf RGB! output). In most cases fore- 
ground keying isn't necessary, and regu- 
lar cotour zero keying should be quite 
sufficient fur must jobs, though if can be 
useful to have the choice sometimes. 

One last point to note is that genlocks 
can only work with Amiga display modes 
which are capable of being gen locked. 
This might stvtn like an obvious point but 
if you have an AGA-equipped Amiga (eg 
an ^ 1 200 or A40Q0) and a mul tiisvnc mon- 
itor and commonly work in UBLRAI- 
mode, for instance, you 11 find that you 
cannot genlock graphics over video. 

EXTERNAL 

This is because the higher display rate 
of the Amiga cannot be synced to the 
external video signal. If you want to find 
oui which display modes Can be gen- 
locked, open the ScreenMode requester 
from Workbench /Preferences and you'll 
find tlu- relevant information displayed 
there. 

And that's my attempt at explaining 
how a genlock works without using too 
many long words or too much obscure jai- 
gon. Because when it comes right down to 
it all you probably realty want to do is just 
to plug a genlock into your Amiga -md get 
down to son iv creative, nay even artistic, 
video work, 

How the genlock actually does what 
it does is probably the least of your 
concerns. But if the quality of your work 
important to you, read the box on dos and 
don Is. A few simple tips could make a 
vast difference to your output. 

Happy genlocking!

The VLabY/C connection 


Vorsprun 


Assuming you have a signal with 
appropriate recording levels, the nexl tusk 
is to activate the Toccata recorder, select a 
location and format for your new sample, 
and hit the Record button. The new sam- 
ple will then be recorded directly to hard 
disk or RAM. depending upon your partic- 
ular preference. 

Once safely recorded you can play hack 
direct from the recorder,, nr alternatively 
load up the Toccata jingle player and audi- 
tion your latest import from there along- 
side, any others you may have in the same 
directory. 

As you've probably guessed r basic set- 
up and recording are very straightforward, 
but how does lire board fare when it comes 
to sound quality? Weil as you'd expect 
from the creators of the VLab range of 
digitisers, Toccata's sound quality is 
exceptional, Indeed, after extensive testing 
I'd say it's probably the best yet for the 
Amiga. 

And better still, the default hardware 
also supports hardware compression 
which provides a very respectable disk 
space saving in exchange for a slight 
degradation in the slgnal-to-noi.se ratio, 

In the case of lb-hit samples, this trans- 
lates to an SNR of 70dB compressed, as 
opposed to %dli uncompressed. 

However no matter how impressive the 


As I mentioned earlier, the creators of Toccata 
already have an impressive hack record in Amiga 
video with their premier product, namely VLabY/C. 
a digitiser widely regarded as the premier video 
grabber. 

One ot thq major reasons tor such acclaim is 
VLabY/C s ability to grab sequential video images 
via IFR frame grabbing option which allows mu Ife 
pie passes over a defined section of video - 
thereby building up an entire, frame accurate 


adjust the mix, some form of monitoring is 
essential and this is achieved via the 
board's loopback feature which enables the 
selected signal/s to he monitored con- 
stantly, thereby allowing you to initiate 
sampling at the optimum moment. 

Lastly the overall output level of the 
board can also Lx 3 adjusted - however this 
shouldn't be confused with actual record- 
ing levels In order to avoid recording sam 
pies that are either loo quiet, or too loud 
(''clipped" l, close attention must he taken 
to the actual input levels. 

To assist this you're provided with a 
generic Input slider as well as a pull-down 
option, initiating a real-time stereo level 
indicator which operates just like an ana- 
logue VU meter. As a result, clipping or 
quiet samples shouldn't be a problem. 


sequence. 

Imprgssivo $lufl, but thanks to Toccata that's 
only the tip of the iceberg. Now, using (ho 16- bit tal- 
ents oF the board full 16-bil audio can also play a 
part in the equation. 

To combine the two, all that's required is a click 
on th? Toccata option within the IFR control panel 
and the process becomes totally automated, the 
end result being a perfect 16-bit soundtrack to 
accompany your 24-bit grabs.

I f# been a long time coming, but at 
Iasi AC can provide the definitive 
review of the very latest European 
import Although the necessary Toccata 
hardware has been in the office for some 
time, the lack dl any documentation has 
kept it firmly at the back of the goodie 
cupboard. 

Thankfully, poslie has finally come 
good with English documentation I nr the 
Toccata sampler and its accompanying 
Samplitude editing software. However, 
before diving into the aforementioned 
software a brief introduction to the hard- 
ware might be wise. 

As is rapidly becoming the norm in the 
world of lfebit sampling, a Zono slot is an 
essential for toccata which obviously 
puts the A 1200 arid below out of the 
picture. 

/Assuming you have the necessary slot, 
adding the various I/O connections in 
pretty straightforward with the back of 
the board providing a stereo line-in, an 
iux input plus a single stereo line-out 
f lowever the story doesn't end there, as 
the board also provides a microphone 
input alongside a second auxiliary. But 
strangely enough, both these additional 
ports -il uppioviiiL.itL-lv half-way along the 
board and therefore require connections to 
be trailed into the machine. 

SET IIP 

Assuming you supplied the necessary 
cabling, inputs, outputs and amplification, 
it's time to boot the control software and 
set up the board. Fortunately initialisation 
is taken care of on boot-up via W B Start- 
up /User Start-up so all that's required is 
adjustment of the odd slider plus selection 
of the required input. 

As you've probably guessed I/O is one 
of the board's strengths and this is 
reflected in the control panel which boasts 
both tt and In bit sampling in both stereo 
and mono, plus the essential sample rate 
slider which offers rates between 5, 5 la Hz 
and the ultimate ot TSkHz whu h is the 
standard for DAT recordings. 

Not surprisingly you're provided with 
Line, Auxl, mic and rah options, with the 
East two being particularly notable in that 
the mix feature allows both aux inputs to 
be combined and recorded simultaneously 
as part of the same sample, 

Although mike input isn't particularly 
unique, unusually it dws benefit from a 
very useful gam option which means 
there's no need to pre-amp] icy the input

MUSIC! 


"tube Pro II comes as a upgrade 
. ' on and provides much improved 
Ifttin functionality including Midi-based 
fttple dumps and access to Ihe 
M -vsiro DAT backup system, which not 
>n»y allows system backups onto OAT, 
-ii also pure digital recording and 
- tsiering via Toccata, 


‘ ird than a traditional Midi-friendly 
daccl-tD-disk recorder. However consider- 
ryt its target user base it appears curiously 
hr king in some basic multimedia require- 
m#., the most notable of which is the lack 
- Jirtvt ARexx support, As a result, its use 
r Sc a la or Modi a Point productions 
i appear tricky at best, 

Wither curious aspect is its affinity -or 
prrhjps lack of it - to Midi. Although an 
to Samplitude I’roll makes its pos- 
*-c i,* dump Midi data to a suitable sam- 

pt keyboard,, the basic version has no 
Midi connection, so alas there's no 
pw y to transport or trigger samples via 


Midi, 

As a result there's also no way of using 
the card under direct sequencer control, 
and even if this were possible, there's no 
means of pitch- shifting existing samples. 
As a consequence, anyone in the market 
for a pseudo-sampling keyboard had bet- 
ter took elsewhere. 

Add to this a lack of support tor that 
videographic and musical essential SMFTE 
timecode, and Toccata's place in the mar- 
ket becomes rather difficu lt to pin down. 

In its defence comes the accompanying 
sample editor Samplitude. As you've prob- 
ably spotted, the basic- Toccata software 
suite has a drastic lack of editing options 
and as a result Samplitude plays an essen- 
tial part in the overall Toccata equation. 

As you can probably tell from the 
screenshots, Samplitude is essentially very 
Similar to the vast majority of 8-bit Amiga 
sample editors, and of course there's no 
reason why you can't operate Toccata as 
an 8-bit sampler if you w ish. 

Fur ihe old guard .Samplitude will be a 
very familiar with the usual cut and paste 
operations, mixing, fading and .special 



The speed of sound 

Lika most power exploits, Ifr-bit sound makes heavy demands on both disk space and 
your CPU. In the case of disk space the equation obviously varies according to the sam- 
ple rate and format you require, but to give you an idea the average stereo sample 
recorded at 4l kT \z - otherwise known as CD quality - wiU require approximately 11 Mb 
of RAM per minute. ' r 

As for Live CPL”, j f$(EU is tl*c lower limit. Using this you could expect to record a 
Stereo sample at T2kl \/ but that would be the upper I i m it For full CD or DAT quality an 
030 processor would be essential, while quadra samples really reed an ikttl. 

Basically, with its various limitations, toccata is very much a matter of taste, The 
actual sound quality ri exceptional which could carve it a niche as a direct-to-disk mas- 
tering system, 

Obviously the hnk with V'Lah will ensure at least limited success in the multimedia 
department courtesy of existing VLabY/C users, while the convoluted approach to 
ARexx - via Samplitude - could make it an appealing investment for the hordes of Scala 
fans. However, with the strong market position of the SunJUie boards and their existing 
links to all kinds of Software, it's difficult to see how Toccata, will successfully break tnto 
the mass market. 

Basically the problem boils down to software. If Macro Systems can continue to sup- 
port and build nn their existing hardware. Toccata could well become a world beater - 
the question is, will they? Watch this space to find out 


effects alongside sample shifting, ampli- 
tude control and so on, In short all you 
need to manage and edit your creations. 

On a more glamorous note, Samplitude 
also offers the odd power feature, such as 
very advanced range control- Hunks to 
this feature you can select an infinite num- 
ber of ranges within the sample and then 
employ the program's playlist feature to 
sequence the various ranges together. 

To do this you're provided with a mini 
single-track seq Lienee from which any one 
of the ranges can be elected and dropped 
into the sequence along with a userndefin- 
abie repeat. Once all your ranges are in 
place you simply hit the play button and 
the playlist kicks into life, leaping around 
the sample to run the sequence. 


additional editing if necessary. 

ARexx is another added bonus of the 
Samplitude environment. Although ide- 
ally Toccata should have an ARexx port ail 
of its own, at least Samplitude can prov ide 
an alternative window into the world of 
multimedia - if by a slightly 
roundabout route..

can be either mono, stereo or quadro

LETTER S ■ 


Cut out the 
middle men 



fort! r* After rcad[tl s y oxir 

news story about 
Citizen selling th-eir 
ProLasnr 6G0U direct to Lite 
public, I had a thought. Why 
don't Commodore selL direct to 
<"* r mlic? Maybe then they could sell the 
CD32 at £m or £149, the A 1201 1 at £249, 
and the A 4000/030 for 6699 or even less. 

This would allow their machines to sell 
M very competitive price*;, could easily 
drop below PC prices, and could blow 
*■■■ m bfiga and Nintendo! 

■'.ties would rise and Commodore 
o>,; id still make a healthy profit, Dealers 
could still sell Amiga hardware and soft- 
ware, so it wouldn't be that much of 

• problem for them to lose Amiga 
aafes 

If there are more Amiga users, sales of 

* jrdware and software will increase, 
■unking up some of the difference Ihe 
dealers would lose by not selling thy 
Amiga range, 

At first it would cost Commodore lots 
money to start a sales division. They 
•wild have to build Commodore shops 


and advertise extensively, but they would 
gyt their money back. 

Finally, can people stop complaining 
about Commodore and the new chip sets? 
Enjoy your Amiga! E paid £1,500 for my 
A4QQO/030 with 240Mb hard drive and 
6Mb RAM only to find ihe same machine 
after & few months would have cost me 
only £1230. 

Do 1 feel ripped of bv Commodore and 
feel the urge to buy a PC? No way. My 
A 4000 is still a great machine and I enjoy 
using it. It's obvious that the A120Q and 
CD32 are going to remain the same, the 
A 4000/ 030 is going to be replaced by the 
AA+ chipset, and the A4000/04I.) is going 
to be replaced by the AAA chipset, but l 
don't care. I'm Looking forward to the 
day, actually. 

The Amiga ha* a future, no matter 
what model you owru 

Stewn Brrww, Camheriey 

Commodore IK didn't pul you up to 
this letter, did they? Seriously, though, 
I'm glad you haven't been swamped by 
the wives of gloom encouraged by some 



sections of the Amiga world since 
Commodore's financial figures 
were announced. 

Yes, the Amiga has a very bright 
future, and yes it will develop as it 
goes on, wilh a AAA chipset machine 
appearing some time this autumn {we 
believe! to be followed by the much 
vaunted Rise-based Amiga with 
Windows NT capability. 

However, your idea fur selling 
Amigas direct to the public stinks. Sorry,, 
but there you have it. 

Commodore's success has been due in 
no small part to the efforts of third parties. 
Everyone from the small high street cum- 
puter store lo the peripherals manufactur- 
ers have supported the Amiga by building 
businesses around it I making money in 
the process, of course), and if Ihe intricate 
dealer network was damaged Ihe Amiga 
would suffer. 

Cutting the high street man with his 


technical support 
and advice out of the 
Commodore chain 
would reduce the 
machine's presence on the 
high street and lower the 
standards of service we 
receive. In addition, the dealers 
would probably drop the Amiga 
altogether if the biggest chunk of business 
was taken away from them. 

Direct sales are, more or Less, available 
through the mail order companies, and if 
Commodore were to invest in a chain of 
shops, they would be forced to sell the 
Amiga at a higher price than present to 
recoup the investment, bony, but as busi- 
ness plans go, this is a concrete rowing 
boat. 




alogue woes 


» ^aue an Amiga 1200 o-n which I play 
Rentier Elite H and Knights of the Sky. 
u - irnlly, I purchased an analogue pyslick 
i J nd that it will not work, on these games. 

Can I Tix" this or is there some way I can 
WO The software to my joystick? The games 
-• brilliant but the digital joystick I also 
fta , e is driving me to drugs and drink. 


Andrew Cvn&n 


r m afraid lhal If a game does not contain 
t“e code to accept analogue joystick 
r'cut. there's nothing you can do about 
fc The number of Amiga games which 
bort't accept analogue joysticks is a 
S ection of the fact that most Amiga 
: ^sticks have always been digital, 
'■-?reas most PC sticks are analogue. 

On most games, you can get round 
the digital controls by selecting mouse 
control, then plugging in a Gravis 
t-'oiisestick, but these are expensive and 
-iy tor the dedicated flight buff. 

Write to the games companies con- 
^rr»ed and express your preference tor 
-alogue control if you want to see it 
included in future games. 

You might also ask Digital Integration 
wriy their superb Tornado game accepts 
■iiugue joysticks but has no facility to 
-jiibreia them, making the option about 
ts much use as a chocolate teaspoon. 


Game over, man! 


lust tin 1 other day, I finished a rather long and arduous compute] 
game (1 Won't say which Line, as must of them are culprits these days) 
which rewarded mv perseverance and dedication with a load of rub- 
bish. 

The final screen, at which I had expected a groovy animation, 
some enthusiastic "well done" back-thumping, or even just a nice 
Lane, was no more than a static, badly drawn picture wilh a few 
words on it. Anti-el i max or what? 

Tf seems to me that the biggest problem with the games industry 
today is that iliey have forgotten the basic psychology of game play- 
ing. We don't do it just to spend some time - there has to be an objec- 
tive or series of objectives and we should be prompted towards them 
and rewarded when we achieve them. Otherwise, what's the point in 
finishing a game? 

All right, you gel that inner glow of self-satisfaction, but this is 
dampened by die feeling that the programmers didn't think finishing 
the game they themselves programmed worthy of congratulation or 
even much note. Es this another indication of the get-rich-quick atti- 
tude so many software people have these days? 

Whatever happened to good old-fashioned games fanatics writing 
the sort of games they'd luve to play themselves? It's by writing from 
this motivation that classics are bom, not by marketing men with 
slide rules and calculators where their pleasure centres should be. 

Would Lemmings, Populous, Manic Miner, or Elite have been halt 
as good if the authors hadn't written from a sense of fun and love of 
gjsmcsf, as they so obviously did? No! 

So the message is; tire the marketing men and hire some of us 
unemployed games players - well keep you right, and lower the 
unemployment figure at die .same time! 

Afffn Gftmty, Portsmouth 

Hmm - this is a little extreme as reactions go. Why should yuu get 


so het up about an end-of-game screen? I suppose your criticisms 
are valid, hut most of the classic games you mention had no 
decent victory screen either. 

On the other hand, modem games design dues seem to con- 
centrate too much on graphics and sound lo Lhe expense of playa- 
bility, but the game players, encouraged (perhaps) by the games 
magazines, are as much to blame as the software companies. 

When a preview appears in an Amiga magazine, all you see of 
the game arc some screenshots, and if the graphics displayed by 
these static, miniscule representations of the game are colourful 
and well drawn the public responds by upping its expectations. 

The games companies, regardless of whether they are partly 
responsible for the expectations of their customers, respond to 
what they feel people want from them. 

Orly when people remember tha| design and playability are 
the most important aspects of any game will the situation 
change. L util then, games houses will feel free Lo create beautiful 
looking games with little or no depth to them, because that's 
whaf th e publ tc d eroa nd&, 

Hollywood has been phoning potential customers for yeare to 
try out movie ideas on (hem before investing millions in actual 
production, resulting in bland but spectacular films such as Die 
Hunt and furdSiic Punk 1 heavy on dinosaurs, light On plot} and it 
can' I be long before the spiralling costs of games production 
starts to force games companies to play even safer. 

If we all want CD-ROM games with masses of graphics and 
music (both time-consuming and expensive to produce), we'll 
have to accept that the games houses will be more and more cau- 
tious about which projects receive the thousands of pounds of 
development cash. 

Your own tastes and demands are, in large pari, the key to 
what the software houses wilt produce, so it's up to you. ^

Piracy sucks 

I'll get straight to the point Piracy - it 
sudtsl E used to be the owner of a Mega 
Drive and Mega CD. but after paying t4fl 
to LfrO for a game 1 thought J sod that. I'll 
sell up and buy an Amiga''. So J bought 
an A 1200 and it's superb. 

HowevfcTr since buying it, E found that 
people are getting "cracked." games from 
bulletin boards. Why do they do it? Can't 
these people see that they are ruining the 
best computer in the world? 

II I can't afford to buy a game I don't 
I list think J, uh, 111 just copy it", it would 
Lx: easy to do so., but Amiga games are so 
much cheaper than console- games any- 
way. and much better (especially the 
AG A ones). 

I say to the Amiga- owning world 
please, please don't let the Amiga games 
scene die. Buy the game, don't copy it,

so long as there are ille- 
gal copies selling for 
less or even freely 
available through 
cracking networks, 
there will always 
be people witling 
and eager tu fake 
advantage. 

We will never

Scion-ara? 


As l am interested in tracing my family 
tree, the Scion program on a recent 
CoverDisk seemed just the thing until I 
noticed that il only works with WB2 and 
better Can you tell me ji there's a 
Workbench 1 .3 version so I can use it 
with my A5Q0? 

0tiri$ Butcher. Romford 

Scions author, Robbie Akin, 
neglected fo include his address in 
the main program's About screen or 


in the main manual, but Scion 
has been around for a while and 
there should be an older WB1.3 
version, 

Formerly known as Arjay

if anyone out there can suggest 
where older versions might be avail- 
able, or if the author can contact us, 
we ll pass on the information. Failing 
this. try one ol the PD houses Who 
advertise in this magazine. 


RISCy business 


Having read of Commodore's plans to use RISC in their next generation Amigas, and per- 
haps even the PC Power chip from Motorola, I was wondering if we can look forward to a 
period of cross- machine compatibility. Ef so, it wouldn't be before time, 

The Amiga and the Macintosh already use the Same CPU, yet Mac emulators are still 
more expensive than Macs themselves once you've bought a hard drive and some extra 
RAM to dedicate to the Ma< *ide. Now if everyone's taking a step forward, why can't they 
all take roughly the same one? 

I was one of the early A max. usd's but have recently switched to Em plant, and I can 
recommend the emulation road to anyone. I know it isn't the panacea sometimes claimed 
for it, hut running two computer from the same box makes life w much easier when, like 
me, you use a variety of computers at home end at work. 

The Amiga has the advantage of cheap and highly efficient software, especially in 
graphics and 3D, while my Mac side runs expensive professional DI E 3 and design pack- 
ages I've borrowed from work. If I can put aside enough for an optical drive or a 
Syquest, I should be able to transfer work from home to office and back again with 
supreme ease. 

Don't the major manufacturers see the benefits? Why don't they open their eyes lo the 
flexibility we the paying public are asking for? 

G Btnedtn, Dumbarton 

the Rower FC chip is indeed planned for use in the next range of Macs and has been 
mooted a* a possible CPU in the A SOM, but don't expect the PC world to take it on 
board. 

Windows N I' has been mentioned as a crossover point between the Pentium Sfifi and 
the A5000, hut again this, is only an early speculation fuelled by unguarded comments 
leaked from Commodore before the company's finances sank into the doldrums. In 
short, don't hold you i breath. 


ger threat, perhaps because 
the Amiga press and the law-abiding 
sections of the Amiga community have 
made such a big issue of piracy over the 
years, 

The bitterest pill to SW allow is that 
our reward for continually assessing the 
threat from software ihieves is to be 
treated as thieves ourselves. 

Why else should many games be hard 
drive installable on the PC but not on 
the Amiga if not because the software 
companies think we are thieves and PC 
owners are 100 per cent hones!? 


AG A upgrade 

I was reading in one tit your magazines 
about a conversion to nuke the A 5 00 into 
an A 1 200 for Ich-s than l! 50. I don ’t know 
whsch magazine it was, but I m very 
interested. 

Apparently, you fit a motherboard to 
the A 500 which tun all the 32-hit. AG A, 
and CPU chips to go with it, and 1 would 
be grateful it you could give me as much 
information as possible. 

A At Teasdale, Middlssborough 

The conversion you write of was offered 
by an American company called 
Copperhead Technologies and is 
a straight motherboard replacement 
where all Ehat is saved of the 
original A3CI0 is the power supply, 
plastic casing, keyboard, and floppy 
drive. 

We hear that Copperhead are a little 
difficult to contact by phone, so for fur- 
ther information, write tu them at;

Having read your CD32 suppleme"’ 
November issue I must complain 
Video CD comment on page lour. 1 
cle stales that movie butts 'will be the 
jump on Video CD, 

How false and misleading! An> 
intoensd person has to know that the 
respecting Him lover wouldn’t even 
the Video CD option nol to mention 
donmg the amazing Laserdisc ' 
because Video CD's picture quality 
slightly superior to the ageing VH$. 

I moan, who would be stupid er

Oh, I torgol to mention the incr

A Laserdisc player (getting cheery- 
better every day) can otter tnamando,.- 
ture and sound quality with full wide 
and Dolby Surround Pro Logic sup 
combined with a huge availability of 
operas, and music videos. This includes 
very latest blockbusters, and not |us1 
movies. 

It's all quite clear, I tnink, and the 
between Laserdisc and Video CD was 
say the least, unlortunato, I'm fully

A)cx Poiedouns, A: 

Well, so far the only people who've 
stupid enough invest heavily in Videc

player in the film and music business 
There's no guarantee, of course, 
those poor misguided outsiders are 
informed, but I think we can sa?f 
assume they won't hang back from 
ing the most of their investment. 

Laserdisc Is now, and always 
been, a fringe format and one which 
always been an overpriced resort 
movie snobs and fanatics. The film 
we mentioned in our supplement, air 
to a person, will never even have see^ 
Laserdisc in action, never mind knew i

Agreed, Video CD isn't of hugely 
ter quality than VHS in absolute k 
but it is still far better. The digital sti 
sound on a Video CD will never si

and no need to fast forward or rewind. 

Remember ihat audio tape can sor 
just about as good as a CD when fir 
bought, but try the two after six me 
and hear the difference. 

With the convergence between me 
music, and games industry settled on 
Video CD, Laserdisc can have all ft 
technical advantages it wants and 
still be superseded.

HARDWARE 


W hen the Small Computer 
Systems Interface (SCSI) 
became an industry stan- 
a w as only a matter of tune before the 
fo of a baying populace forced the 
hi produce a successor, 
content with SCSI's speed, ability to 
ami up to bevien devices including scan’ 
» P ri nters and cornu rniical use of pro- 

■w fame, the market wanted more. 

the Tefal men came up with was 
«r imaginatively named SCSI- II, a new 
- ' s interface with maximum data 
•hh rates up to a theoretical ceiling of 
xl - r ' per second and access times which 
• ■ Hir brea th away, 

- ■ now, SCSI-II was unavailable on the 
but the release of DKb r s A 4091 M 
f- the gap. Originally a project hatched 
\miga in-house development team, 

‘ 4 "'1 was farmed nut to DKB when 
ludore halted the project to coficetv- 
nr the pressing task of survival. Only 


Lap record 


The A409l's speed is. of course, Impressive but if Is difficult at the 
momenl to gauge exactly how fast the card will work as no good 
SCSI-1 1 testing software could be found in time for the test. 

Most existing benchmarks tail to stretch the interlace to its limits, 
and some even crash during the test procedure. As a result, any 
speed ratings we have are strictly provisional, but it doesn't take a 
minutely accurate test to show up the huge difference between this 
and older boards. 

For example, writing a 6.5Mb file jo hard drive using the A4Q9! 
takes 14.5 seconds, and a slaggerirg 73 seconds using the 
A40QQ's built-in IDE Interface, This in itself is □ slow result for the 
A4091 , as the limited DisKPerf and OiskSpeed tests earned out 


indicated a transfer speed well in excess of 8Mb per second. 

Drive fragmentation and She vast differences between SCSI-11 
and IDE pul the test in perspective, but A4000 owners should 
have no ctoubts that adding SCSI-N is tantamount to boosting ibo 
Amiga's foase^peed. 

Access times are similarly blistering, working out at around 
4ms. though for some reason the read and directory scan results 
from our test programs did not accord with the evidence of our 
own eyes, 

Much slower test readings suggest that the software itself is at 
fault rafher than the A4091 , so if anyone out there can provide a 
reliable SCSI-1! test program, stick it in (he post. 


by putting everything into making and sell- 
ing Amiga* could Commodore keep afloat, 
and lo the relief of those who had been 
waiting for the A4091, DKB stepped; in. 

bitting in the 32-bit Zorro III slobs found 
in A3000 and A400G machines, the taut! has 
no accommodation for extra RAM of sts 


own, but offers a SCSI-1] through port ami a 
set of n.-.ir mounted dip switches for setting 
the board's various SCSI options, 

Different switch bettings cater for inter- 
nal and external drive mountings, the new 
fast bus mode, and the host ED number to 
facilitate the addition nt a drive to an exist 
big system. 

Mew active termination technology is 
also offered in the shape of a terminator 
pack which the user can attach to the end of 
llic SCSI chain, thus avoiding the old fash- 
ioned method of (in my case,, anyway) flick- 
ing little resistors across the room with a 
screwdriver Lo the accompaniment of much 



Stevie Kennedy 
takes A409 1 , the UK's first 
Amiga SCSI-11 hard drive card, for a test drive 


profanity. As the terminator pack dangles- 
wonyingly from the end of the SCSI cable, I 
was a little worried about wliere it might end 
up, but the small FCB ifi almost entirely 
encased in glutinous insulating plastic, so 
there should be no chance of a disastrous 
short circuit, 

Due to the lack of spate in an A41XW Zorro 
bay, a handy length of cable is supplied to 
enable thy connection of a drive mounted in 
die second 3.5 in floppy compartment, and 
with the dip switches it should be relatively 
easy lur inexperienced users to add extra 
devices. The manual, though, could he a little 
more expansive on some poi ruts, 

Hard drives, and SCSI drives in particular, 
are a source i it much confusion (even among 
main so-called experts) and the4l>odd page 
manual doesn't help much. 

EMPHASIS 

There are good, dear instructions on fit- 
ting the card and any accompanying hard 
drives, but with a little more on why tilings 
work and more emphasis on trouble shooting 
would make things easier fur nervous users 
(or most of us, in other words). 

One note for potential buyers of the A4091 
is that many of the older A4000 machines 
contain an early version of the Busier chip 
which, while not ruling out Lhe use of 5CSI-II, 
negates a great deal of the speed benefits. 

Without an upgrade from Wang, entailing 
the replacement of the motherboard if your 
Buster is surface mounted, transfer speed will 
be tittle more than 2Mb per second. 

This aside, I have no hesitation in recom- 
mend mg the A4091 to ail those involved in 
productivity work, particularly direct to disk 
sampling. 24-bit graphics, and other storage- 
in tensive activities. Bung an A4091 in an 
Amiga used fur soch purposes and life will 
never be the same again.

«™ urtegrfli part of attaching an icon to a 
•mpr/i/e. 

feurtX is present in the C directory of 
pr*r Jrjinf drive jiflef basically interprets 
’* script commands much irr the way 
A<t rftc SfteJJ does. 

I -appose the first thing to do reoufd be 
9m design /in icon for your hard drive 

* ■■•iiier script . Design the icon using 

'if if if in the Toots drawer of your 
W fA.riiw.rj and wake sure the Type Jjaenr/ 
#*> Project selected - a script file is 
in* ribed jis a Project 

Srre tire icon ifl the same taoitrcu-j tf.vjf 

* rtfi tire same mime as the script 
W.. Locate the icon T click it once and 
•hr* select information. „ from the icons 
menu. 

1 window will appear telling you 


everything about the script file. 

However, trying ta run it from the 
icon will have no effect until you give 
it a Default Toot „ With the Informa- 
tion window hack up, click in the 
Default Tool: window. Type in Icon X, hit 
Rffjirrr rurd then click on Save. 

Now when you click tin the icon you 
should find that your hard drive installer 
script has been successfully executed. Yon 
cerjy then leave fljjf the icon so that it 
appears on the main IVoriduuj ckt window. 
Easy, ch ? 

What a picture 

All disks have a disk icon 
attached to them but is it possi- 
ble to create one for the RAM

I have Lried copying a disk icon across 
but jt obviously is lost when I furn the 
machine off or warm boot.

It is possible to attach a disk 
icon to the JRAAf disk hut you 
can't simply copy a disk icon 
into it. There is a sneakier miry loiricif 
will guarantee yorir RAM disk bunts up 
with pride. 

Design the itm* and save it to the S

User-Startup, also in the S directory, 
using Ed ami type in:

Gag those 
drives 

I urn King driven mad! 1 It's rot a 
lack of RAM, it's not a lack of 
hard drive space, it's not even 
the lack of hard drive installer 
programs in computer games, Mo,, this 
problem is serious - dicky drive 
syndrome! 

Is there any way 1 can stop my 
bloody disk drives from constantly 
clicking all the hme? I regularly boot my 
A590 with blank disks in the drives 
iust so the incessant clicking stops. 

The down side of this is that it mere 
ases my haul drive access time. I've tried, 
music, meditation, everything, to no avail- 

It doesn't matter what the cost, there 
nuist be something out there that will 




Why fas* 
RAM? 

I have read many artistes- 
regarding RAM in yours and 
it other Amiga magazines. Bui 
still cannot appreciate Iho ditiorence 
between chip and fast HAM I don I 
want a thorough breakdown of the 
thing, just a simple this is why and this 
is why rsoL 

A friend has told me that adding 
fast HAM greatly speeds up the Ami 3a 
but I imagined this was the job of a 
processor. Does last RAM really turbo 
Charge the Amiga? 

Jamie Dome , Isle. of Wight 

1 The truthful answer to 
whether fast RAM actually 
^ furbo chargers the Amiga 
Is not However, that's not to say 
that there isn't a noticeable differ- 
ence in speed when it is available. 

If you have no fast RAM and you 
load a program it will dump itself in 
the chip RAM. This is used by toe 
Amiga's chips to perform calcula- 
tions and if there are too many pro- 
grams in chip RAM the Amiga 
begins to slow as the chips strug- 
gle to find space in which to per- 
form their calculations. 

When there is fast RAM the pro- 
grams will use this Instead, thus 
leaving the chip RAM to toe chips 
themselves. 

(f you are considering using your 
Amiga seriously I would strongly 
recommend that you purchase 
some fast RAM - 2Mb at the mini- 
mum with 4Mb recommended. 


turn the clicking off - why docs it happen 
anyway? 

FrCcr Sibbs, Northampton 



In my experience, every hard 
drive owner eventually falls foul 
of the dreaded dicky drive syn- 
drome as you so perfectly pul if, but there 
is a program out there and the good news 
is it won't cost you a beam 

The program you're after is available 
from most reputable public domain 
houses for just tor price of a disk and is 
called NCHck. Unfortunately, I cniTf 
remember the programmer's name but if 
does tL'0rfc u Fr cf brings sweet relief 
instantly, It not only disables DF 1? bnt 
also DFl, DF2 and DF3 ,

After selling my Archimedes

feel confident that I canid write a game of 
my own. 

Could you p lease ex flam what the best 
programming languages are and what 
software I would need in order to create 
games ? 

Lance Richards-, London 

r VVrlf Lance, if uroirM scefFF to rrtf 
that you haven't realty dabbled 
iuit.fi computer programming 
much in the puiid. Writing games to match 
those flPflp/ufiJe sow would fate a greet 
deai! 0 / t/mc ami patience. 

Gawies programmers inpdriabfjr use 
Assembly language to Tonic their games. 
As the Amiga is such a complex piece of 
hardware fJieir are frnifrv facet s to pro- 
gramming it that nm$! he mustered. 

Fortunately, there area cvupte of excel- 
lent programming packages that would 
allow ytm to create vent respectable 
games without a degree in mathematics. 

turopress Software are responsible for 
the KJOr/d-nfincwflerf Amos programming 
language. It is similar in many respects M 
ftftsic; but is far more pciycrtitl. fijit if it is 
really only games that you want to create 
you would probably be better off getting 
Isold of Acid Software's superb Blitz 
Basie 2 . 

Blitz 2 has been designed with the 
beginner in mind and offers complex 
graphics and sound handling which while 
powerful, won't have you tearing jftfMr

Missing printer 

After saving long and hard my 
two children purchased an 
P Amiga 1200 which was fire until 
Christmas. 

As a surprise I bought them an Epson 
LQ10O printer- Wf spent time reading the 


manuals and magazines but couldn't get 
the printer to work, The Workbench 3-0 
software was installed and everything 
went fine until we came to the point of 
selecting a printer driver from the printer 
prefs program. 

Can you please help? 1 wrote to 
Commodore several weeks ago but have 
had no reply as of yet. 

Airs L Wright, Sheffield 

r lVbcn 1 ton say you irif ta lied 
Workbench 3,0 I presume fftnf 
ycju aisn ouw n hard rfripe. If the 


software is installed carrrrTlg 
using the ojfjfrciaf Commodore imta m

If you can't find the Generic driver {

Shell short-cuts 



After tampering with the Shell and finally getting 1o grips with it I would like to 
add some, hot key definitions so that ! can speed up my typing of 
commands, 

At present I am personalising my Workbench and have installed (he excellent 
MagicWB PD program. Nowall thal is left is to personalise the Shell. I understand that 
creating hot keys is possible in tho Amiga but \ can't fathom out exactly how it is done. 

David Holden, Southampton 


r Danger! MagicWB may took very attractive tout ive Installed it or the 
Amigas here at Amiga Computing and if ceuseto quite a few problems. 
My advice would toe to defete it immediately and personalis# the ioons 
yourself - a far more satisfying and safe option - rather than risking your 
Amiga's health. 

Anyway r on to your point about personalising your Shell, When you load the 
Shell up if reads a file in your S directory caited Shell-Startup, This text file con- 
tains Information about hot keys, catted Alias in Amiga DOS . and various other 
attributes of the Shell window. Take a look at by typing: 


1 C i:sF*U-itartup' 


from the Sheil itself. 

Let's say that you wanted the Shell to print ' hallo’' when you typed "hello”. 
You would need to type in: 

'lUas hftio echo "heLLo" 

and then save it by pressing Esc toen x and then Return. All you need to do is 


attach a command to the alias. 

The neurit time you toad up the Shell, type in hello' and see what happens 
The Alias command is more powerful than explained here but this should keep 
you going for the moment.

INTERVIEW ■ 


M uch of what goes on 
Ihe computer industry 
warrants a closer lock 
- dissatisfied customers, promises 
rade and nol kepi, fickle attitudes 
awards social issues and many other 
■reasane ripe for investigation. 

-ach month, we'll he bringing you 
Concise interviews with the wheelers 
i dealers of the industry for you to 
wake up your own mind on how you. 
■s a customer, are being Healed. 

"ne series kicks off with David 
? e-asance, MD of Commodore (UK), 
ipeaking about why iheir new wun- 
jerkind rg not receiving the good 
7 sponse they expected fiom some of 
our readers. 



tion left these people <1 little bit sinned. So, 
while they were telling us on thr one hand 
that they were doing thirty, thev put 
themselves on hold tojiee what was going 
to happen to Commodore before they 
committed iheir resources. 

I can't really blame them but at the end 
of the day, I'm obviously nol happy that 
we were given lots of commitments which 
were not fulfilled I i-hji honestly say now 
that I don't know of any company that's in 
that position now - they're putting their 
resources into it 

In fact, the levels of sales al firnt, even 
for standard ports as you rightly call 
them, have been quite staggering so far a 
l‘m aware. I don't know of any major 
company that is not committed to produc- 
ing on Its own... 


j , iJ r what can you say to 
buyers of the CD32 who 
let down and disap- 
|W ''led with the lack of origi- 
*4 software that was 

pi io them bv the end 

•f 93? Straight port-overs 
ru A 500 games with extra 
■K^nd and colours are hardly 
tfrte-uf the-art 32 bit CD tech 




While your recent double 
page spreads qiioting lead- 
ing games makers con- 
firming their continuing 
support is encouraging, 
when are we aclually 
going to see CD32-specific 
games other than 
Liberation ? 


gaming we were led to 
'-'t sfMvn after the launch,,. 

' jii fairly simple question 
answer - to manufacture 
produce a standard inter- 
nment product, by that 1 
m a floppy disk or car- 
cc-based product, tikes 
ornately nine months, 

To produce a CD-based 
-Uct using all the technol- 
and facilities that are avail- 
on highly-specified 
based machines takes 
1 lh months. The product 
only released to two [com- 
because we had a very 
g requirement to keep Lhe 
secret- 

he prod uct was given to a 
ful of developers three to 
months prior to its launch 
the realities of it are that 
re are a targe number of 
good products under 
'opnient hut the timescale 
it lakes longer than the 
lues been on the market, 
m essence, the answer is 
patient". 

« do you feel about the 
tware houses thal made 
mises and subsequently 
’’fd their deadlines? Do 
like the Consumer, feel 
down? 


there am certainly a

made commitmefits 
ly that they were v 
•ri various projects , 
k in all honesty 
mod ore's .financial 



Microcosm is due nut at 
any time and that is pretty- 
da run good, Rise of the 
Rabat s is due out, they're 
telling me, at thiE* beginning 
of March and that's 
hintanbc, 

So. it's very imminent - I 
mean, we're in early 
February now but my belief 
is the best titles will come 
out probably in the pre- 
Christitnas period this year 
because there reallv is 12 
months' development in 
these products and they 
can't be done any faster.,, so 
much to use-, you know. 

Industry sources have sug- 
gested ihal there are maybe 
AS Hltle as 50,001} CD32 
uriils in ttritish homes at 
present. Is lhi>. figure wor- 
rying for the future of the 
CD32 and therefore for 
Commodore as a whole? 

We have not achieved the 
level of sales that we 
would've liked and 1 think 
that there are a number of 
reasons for that, Certainly, 
the lack of software of any 
description was a definite 
negative m terms of people 
committing to buy the 
mrirhine and 1 can’ll blame 
them for that. 

Also# the reality of it is 
that the console market is 
considerably down on.,, 
everybody's estimates. I 
would suggest to you that

ipirting April 1594 


mn 


CD32 comes 
under close 


f scrutiny in the first 

V 

’ of many inquisitions 


into the kind of 

rgfe, ,, 

treatment you, the 
l?^customer, receive. Adam 
^Phillips asks the questions 









■ I NTERVIEW 


Sega and Nintendo m- at least 4D per cer t 
down cm tlvcir estimates We believe that 
we still have made ihe linn's share of CD* 
based hardware sales but obviously, the 
numbers are down on what we predicted. 

However, what 1 can say confidently is 
that there is no question in my mind,, and 
Vw been at Commodore for ten years, 
that in the ftimel the CD32 ha^ been 
released, we have had a better sales pene- 
tration than any other previous product, 
including the Commodore 64 and the 
Amiga >Ufl. 

I ihink it bodes very well - my bebef is 
that the Cl >32 will most definitely be the 
product for this Christmas, 1944. 


To truly make ihe CD32 a success, 
America is the market to be conquered. 
Apparently, the release Stateside was a 
tow profile affair which again 
leads to Ihe question - are 
Commodore doing enough? 


Well, it's no secret that 
Commodore don't have huge 
resources at this moment in 
history. The press launch in 
the States during the CES 
show was extremely well 
attended with over 200 jour- 
nalists and extremely well 
received - and I'm not just 
saying that because i like mak- 
ing all positive notes, I'm abso- 
lutely genuine about that. 

IVe been very critical about 
what the Stateside people have 
done in the past but this par- 
ticular launch went very well 
and I think the reason why il 
went down, so well is because 
there is such a down feeling 
and an anticlimax regarding 
3 DO - everybody though it 
was going to be wonderful. 

Ihe 3 DO shipment figures 
I've been told are 32,000 units 
shipped to retailers and less 
than 10,000 have sold through 
since September. The 
American journalists are very 
disappointed and believe the 3DO m a 
disaster and are really looking for some- 
thing hi fill its void. 

With the launch, we've shown what 
the CD32 can do and what the potential 
is They are very excited about it and ] 
think you'll find that we will have had 
within the last week or two and the next 
two tn three weeks, a great deal of 
coverage. 

The product isn't shipping until March 
- we are not in a position to do a massive 
campaign. I mean it costs millions and 
millions of dollars to do that but our plan 
is tn launch in a very similar way to that 
which Atari have done with the Jaguar; to 
launch in a couple of specific areas and 
promote within those areas, and l Lhink 
that the potential is very large. 

We actually genuinely believe that we 
can do somewhere between 2fl0 and 
300,000 units in a 12-monlh period from 


live date of launch 
in the Sta tes. 


In the future, how 
do you reckon 
your chances are 
against the 3DQ, 
Jaguar, Saturn 
and other high- 
spec machines 
that are coming to 
our shores at 
some stage this 
year? 



realises. I'm not 
so sure about 
tine end user, but 
if-, not a 64-bit 
product. 

The other thing 
about the Jaguar 


oa 


ib th.it obviously 
. +■ 

at the moment 


I think we have a 
big advantage in 
terms of 3FX1, Saturn and the Nintendo 
alliance, and that is we have a product 
that already exists. You know, when 
Saturn flits the Slates or Europe, its going 


ifs a cartridge- 
based system and 
the CD doesn't 
exist tor it. 

My informa- 
tion is, and I 
don't think that 
you'll disagree, 


graphics, but they were showing 
a monitor that cost S5,(XKJ. 

There's no way on God's eni-th 
kid at home is going to see thm 
his home without paying 55,tX ■ j 

monitor to give that resolution. To 
think that's a scam, never mind 
anyone thinks. 

So in terms of our technical sp 
lion, the projects we have under 
opment can certainly keep ahead .* 
competition. 


that the majority of software publishers 
are desperately trying to get out car-

The C Ll 32 Mk II is in developin' 
present. Can you tell me about 
nological advancements from tbi 
sent model and when it is goine 
released? 



I can't and I won't because the 
thing in the world is publishing ■, . 

ware which stops 
buying my product 
can't afford that - I 
have people conti to

won't comment on Lh, : ’ 


Should customers be

obsolete by the end oJ

No it'll never become

scam 


to be much later this 
year if it hits this year 
at all; I suspect it will. 

They are going 
through the same 
problems that we are 
going through in 
terms of product writ- 
ten for it so I believe 
that we have a head- 
start - we launched in 
October.,, to hit the 
shelves first, 

My belief is that 

having this year headstart is definitely 
going to be advantageous to us - there i 1 * 
nothing that the Saturn product spec 
delivers that is exceptional in regard to 
our specification. 

Jaguar in terms of its specification is 
somewhat of a scam - it's not a 64-bit 
product as everyone who looks at it 


"The Jaguar, in 
terms of its 
nation, is 
somewhat of a

Concerning the CD3 
there are a number 
very high profile arc* 
companies currently

Dav id Pleasance 


end of the day, we 
all know it's 
the software 
that drives the 
hardware. 

Having said all 
of those things of 
course, we have a 
number of prod- 
ucts under devel- 
opment which I 
can absolutely 
assure you will 
compete in terms 
of specification with any product that we 
know of or can potentially be promoted. 

Listen* I'Ll give you a very good exam- 
ple, this project from Nintendo with 
Silicon Graphics. They were showing 
what the potential will be at the CES 
show in Las Vegas straight from a 
$40,000 machine with thesv fantastic 


the machine. 


Finally, is it true that you once a 
second in an Opportunity fCrmt'-G-sh 
show in Australia for playing ihe fl 
menco guitar?

hanks to the ever growing nuin- 
ber of hard disk users, the back- 
up business has become ore of 
1 1 r growth areas when it comes to 
software. As a result, Central Coast 
ire have enjoyed something of a 
period, 

frwever, improved sales have a ten- 
5o attract file imposition, which in the 
• software security has meant a much 
■ ed revision to the Ami- Sack range of 
up and utility programs, 
bch (Quarterback and Ami -hack have a 
-mi Ur approach to the subject with a 
ted back-up package in the form of 
. k .and Ami-back alongside sepa- 
disk management package entitled 
aerbaek tools and Ami-back tools 
rwely, 

4ofc‘ever after years as the dominant 
n disk management, Central Coast 
recently found themselves playing 
as Ami-back Launched their latest 
■- with the Addition of back-up 
trig - something which the new 
Itk Couldn't match. 

- unpleasant surprise obviously infu- 
the boys and girls at Central Coast,

their latest version of Quarterback.

As a consequence they've non, retaliated 
with the release of Quarterback v6 only 
months after it? predecessor. However, this 
time scheduling is high on the agenda with 
a standalone utility appended to the basic 
Quarterback package. 

To be fair the authors have taken the 
opportunity to do a ittle tidyirtg-up as well 
as adding the aforementioned scheduler. At 
the forefront of the new enhancements 
comes much improved data compression 
which can write to floppies al normal 



speed. Support for mn triple tape back-ups 
has also been included, allowing large vol- 
umes to be spread across several small 
tapes, Tape support has also been 
improved to cater for more modem lape 
streamers which offer hardware comprcs- 


llltlng uuJyni a mi i^nthr backupc oft ail a port of Itte ihiV package 


sion, fa-t tape Advance and quick eraser 
features. 

On top of that come several new ARexx 
macro commands some ut which have 
been designed specifically for the sched- 
ule r, white many of the existing macros 
have been updated and expanded to fur- 
ther improve Quarterback's automated 
operations. However useful, much of the 
above is basically king, while the real 
Appeal has to be the program's impressive

Sinpfuved dirioAtErNENf Courfeipf of the atl new FRFD 

newly supported third-party hardware includes DPS PAR, 
EGS, Retina Z-lll and Retina, and the Video Toaster 
Image format support has been improved with the addi- 
tion of six new file formats in ADPro and three in the 
optional Professional Conversion Pack. 

In the case of ADPro, support has been added lor 


Commodore's CDXL animation format. Digital Broadcaster 
JStraam tiles, FlC and FLI animations. ICO files and direct 
reading and writing of Workbench icons. 

The PCP has grown to support files in the SGI, Alias, 
and Wavefront, both the RLA and RLB formats. Owners of 
the PCP should note that, as in the past, their PCP mod- 
ules will be upgraded as part of the ADPro upgrade. 

SUBLIMATION 

ADPro 2.5 directly supports the Fargo Primera printer in 
its dye sublimalion mode - its thermal transfer mode was 
already supported by ADPro's P ref Printer saver, “The 
Primera is a breakthrough due to its low price,’ said Sales 
Manager Gina Gemiglia, 

"We've adapted our slate-of-the’art printer support to 
drivo the Primera in dye-sub mode, including the ability to 
print huge posters in amazing colour." 

The new package also includes more than 100 pre-writ- 
ten ARijo; programs, many of which are interactively cus- 
tomisable by the user. (J&ed in conjunction wrth the latest 
version of FRED these ARexx programs can be combined

new scheduler. Obviously the scheduler's 
primary concern is unattended back-ups via 
Quarterback blit thanks to the generosities of 
the programmers, scheduler can turn its 
hand to much more besides. 

In fact the program can be used start any 
program or AKexx script at a particular time 
or according to .1 predefined regular - or 
even irregular - schedule. As if that wasn't 
enough, it can also provide on-screen 
reminders using the same process, instead of 
adding a program or script you can type in a 
message which svili pop-up on the year, 
month, day and time of your choice, 

Actually setting up scheduler with any- 
one of the aforementioned events is simplic- 
ity itself -you simply bool the program,, add 
a new event, define the start time and 
whether il should be yt^sarl y, monthly, or 
daily Basically any perceivably combination 
of time and date is possible on either a repet- 
atiA e or single-event basi v 


In order to activate the process y L iu simply 
add the new event - w ith an appropriate title 
- and save it out Basically that's it Assuming 
you do the sensible thing and add the pro- 
gram to vnur Workbench-stisrtup draw r er - 
with the appropriate tool types - it will hoot- 
up every time you start the machine, deposit- 
ing an Appleon on the Workbench ready to 
receive new events and activate existing ones. 

tssentially that's about it. Not exactly a 
major revision but for any registered users 
out their it's definitely worth the extra 
investment. And for any would-be new 
investors the latest revisions certainly go a 
long wav to reaffirming Quarter bat k's posi- 
tion as the leading light in soft- ■ t 'T 
ware security. W ■ ^ 1

The third 
word 

Word processing has to be one of the 
hardest fought markets on the Amiga, 
with constant revisions and updates 
prompting more of the same from !fie 
hard pressed opposition, 

Over the last tow years Digrta have 
- on the whole - managed to retain the 
high ground courtesy of Wordworth, a 
package- which in its day set new stan- 
dards for Amiga word processing. 

However in recent months the tide 
tias turned with the arrival of Final 
Writer, a package which made a very 
serious challenge lor the Title of the 
Amiga's premier word processor. As a 
result Digila have now bounced back 
with the third revision of Worriwarth. 

Obviously Digits had to pull some- 
thing special out of the bag. and with 
the arrival ol Auto Correct they could 
have done exactly that. Thanks to this 
new feature, minor typing errors are 
automatically corrected for you without 
the assistance of the usual spell check. 

For example it you inadvertently 
typed 'W instead of ‘the", the error 
would be automatically spotted and 
replaced with the correct spelling as

the process is completely configurable 
so you’re free to add your own definitions 
to the list. For example by simply adding 
the toilers AC and the appropriate defini- 
tion the software would replace it with 
Am/ga Computing every lime that letter 
combination appeared. 

Cuslomising in general has seen a lot 

Ol attention with another example being 
the arrival of new user-definable interlace 
which enables you to 
specify the typeface, 
the gadget sizes and 
group tilles. It's even 
possible to tail the 
pop-up requesters if 
required.

UPPER DISK TOOLS 

This am airing new program gtters a great new concept in ihe 
recovery ol deleted or lost liles from either corrupt or normal 
disks. Files are recovered from disk through a new virtual 
AmigaDOS device Called RED: that is mounted! by recovery, Each 
scannable disk drive has a directory within the REC: device with 
the same name. These can be floppies or hard drive partitions, 
Including those formatted with the newer file systems Direclory 1 
Cached or International. 

Once the user scans any of those dire dories, the program 
analyses ihe respective AmigaDOS disk drive and builds lhat 
disks directory tree. The files found during the scanning process 
are placed in directories according to Iheir category, either nor- 
mal deleted liles, deleted files without parent directories or files 
without headers. 

The brilliance ot this concept is that users can retrieve trie riles 
wilh a simple copy procedure from the REC: device to anywhere 
el$s, using the DLL Workbench or their favourite directory utility 
program’ 

Everything is so transparent that it is even possible to read or 
execute a file from me REC: device’

F E AT U RE 


I t's quite a owing. to see how much the 
computer industry has evolved since 
the very early days of the Sinclair 
Spec!™ rn and Commodore 64. How limes 
have charged since those etching days 
when quality was all-important and the 
sales of games meant little against the enter- 
tainment value they offered 

Nowadays the purchaser matters little, 
entertainment matters less and the incredi- 
bly wealthy software industry runs with a 
narrow criteria based on money and self* 
promotion, and all at the expense of what 
used to be the singularly most important 
element in the industry - the games player. 

As Amiga owners you may think that 
you have been welt supported by the soft- 
ware publishers, venting your anger and 
frustrations at Commodore's often perplex- 
ing marketing strategy but you'd he 
wrong. 

Commodore have made mistakes, but 
thvinn an 1 a far cry from the often cut-throat, 
uncaring attitudes (hat exist within the soft- 
ware industry, What I am about to >;ay is 
not intended to shock, but to inform the 
reader of the unprofessional attitudes that 
often exist behind the glossy exterior that is 
the software publisher, 

As the popularity of the Amiga home 
computer grew, so did the software indus- 
try as a iv hole, What were tJflM family busi- 
nesses very rapidly evolved into corporate 
giants and with this evolution came the 
inevitable distance between publisher and 
purchaser, 

! 1 k once all-important guy at the end of 
the line had now been forgotten amid con- 
tracts worth millions and an industry which 
often no longer caned about quality, sacrific- 
ing it tor quantity. 

Of all the various tribes of home com- 
puter and console owners, it is the Amiga 
fraternity who have suffered the most. The 
biggest bone of contention between Amiga 
owners and software publishers is piracy - 
something most people know exists but 
know Little about 

As far as software publishers are con- 
cenmedr piracy is to blame for every shortfall 
with Amiga software - poor packaging, 
bugs, lack of after-sales support and non- 
hard disk installable software are all cited. 

And now r piracy has become the excuse 
used bv software publishers to avoid what 
is considered hassle from purchasers the 
same purchasers who were and still are

responsible for rite growth of the computer 
industry, especially Amiga owners! 

Only by uncovering the many ways in 
which Amiga owners have been short- 
changed can we gain a good Impression of 
the real truth behind the threat of piracy. 

Probably one of the most successful eom- 
p antes who have declined to property sup- 
port Amiga owners in the past are Ocean 
Software. Famous for their unimaginative 
and uninspiring movie licences which have 
sold million* to the younger age group 
arguably due to their titles and subject mai- 
lers, Ocean's F-29 Retalintor and Epic are 
two of the most bugged garnet; around - 
and this from one of the biggest software 
publishers in the world! 

HELD BACK 

.And when MirrorSoft were in business a 
few yean, ha, k, they deliberately lie Id back 
their Turtles game from computer maga- 
zines because they knew full well it won Id 
be slated. 

It is this kind of skulduggery that has 
helped shape the software industry we 
know today. Put the problems don't end 
when a game has been purchased. 

Bugged software rarely causes an uproar 
- pa rtly due to the appeasing nature of the 
British public - but it is bet oming more and 
more common. 

It is true to say that nearly all software 
houses have some kind of bug-testing team 
and to all intents and purposes they do 
their best to ensure that software hits the 
shelves '"bug free". Unfortunately due to

self-imposed deadlines, and sates and mar- 
keting teams who care little tor quality, the 
quantity of software dial is actually released 
bugged is phenomenal 

The sales and marketing team will 
invariably admit the existence of these bugs 
in their products, although they will skate 
over the 1 problem whenever they can, 
putting it down to (seU-impoeed) deadlines 
and the fact that you can never totally free a 
game from bugs. 

OK, that's a fairly valid point, but where 
are the numerous bug patches that grace 
the PC? A tremendous number of bug 
patches are available for this machine on 
bulletin hoards, m the public domain and 
from the actual companies concerned,

towards their

few and far between!

ATTITUDE 

indeed, 1 was personally so disgusted 
I th the contemptuous attitude uf home 
» ftware publishers towards their loyal buy- 
that 1 decided to help Rowan Software 
their Reach for the Sku^ game for 

Vagin. 

On average, T reported twice the number 
if bugs that Virgin's team spotted. After my 
- nd report J did not receive later versions 
md subsequently the game was released - 
included, some of which i had even 
x- 1 ifmed them about. Then? you go, a prime 
linple of the ignorance of software 
•uuses. 

Combat Air Patrol (CAP) from Liverpool- 
t^ygnosis was indeed bugged, again 
«* the most crucial moments in tlu- game, 
fust who is testing this software? When I 
t tanged Psygnosis about the problem 


they didn't appear particularly concerned 
and nothing more was sa id. 

There are others that I could mention and 
they know 7 who they are. it Digital 
Integration can produce excellent and com- 
plete games why can! other software com- 
panies? Digital Integration, famous for their 
flight simulations, have released only twxs 
within the last three years - FI 6 Combat 
Pilot and Tornado, 

Both are exceptional games that look 
good .irid play well and which have sold 
deservedly well - you need only read the 
manuals to realise that you're dealing with a 
company who care about their user base, 

Digital Integration have also announced 
that they are planning to release an 
enhanced, version of Tornado, all previous 


bugs removed. This is certainly a first, and 
congnatulaliffli-H must go out to PI for taking 
the initiative. 

If software publishers refuse to release 
bug patches there is an alternative -an inde- 
pendent committee employing a specialised 
team of testers set up especially to monitor 
software and help the software pubtislj^rs to 
Clean up theif products, 

Anyone who ignores the advice of the 
committee would have a sticker slapped on 
their software informing the public that it has 
no! been properly tested and that it may con- 
tain errors. 

Retailers would undoubtedly refuse to 
take unchecked software which would force 
software publishers to spend more time 
making sure their products were working 
correctly, 

Unfortunately, tl is not just bugged soft- 
ware that causes problems, Ocean recently 
re leased their movie conversion of Steven 
Spielberg's Jurassic Park on the A12U0 and 
although the program came on four disks it 
was not hard disk -nsfa liable (something 
they have rectified with the release of Ryder 
Cup). 

ABYSMAL 

The loading time is abysmal from loppy 
and you spend more time waiting for game 
sections to load than playing the bloody 
thing - as far as hard disk installable soft- 
ware govs, Hit- Amiga has been left out m the 
Cold- 

Software publishers justify their lack of 
support for Amiga hard disk owners by 
insisting that piracy is too big a problem and 
that few Amiga owners actually own hard 
drives, 

VVell, l for one feel deeply put out when I 
have to suffer a four-disk floppy swap just 
because software publishers can't or won't 
protect their games adequately. 

What's wrong with manual or code wheel 
protection? Sure, it won't stop the big-time 
hacker, hut then you never will. What it will 
do is reduce the chances of the small-time 
pirate copying software and distributing it. 

Although snftwa re publishers will tell you 
otherwise, PC piracy is becoming just as 
much of a problem as Amiga piracy, yet all 
IK? games are installable and very few have 
any form of copy protection. In 1993 more 
than TiXUKX) CD games were copied! 

Action should be taken to reduce piracy 
but not at the expense of law-abiding Amiga 
owners who art- paying £25 to £35 a game 



Debbie Durrani is public relations 
manager at Digital integration. I 
spoke to her about Tornado, and 
after-sale support for purchasers 
"if there are any Tornado Amiga 
owners having problems or they sim- 
ply need help they can of course ring 
our helpline. We are also updating 
the master disks in which we have 
cured as many bugs as we possibly 
can," 

As for Ihe future. 01 have much 
more to offer as far as Tornado 
Amiga goes Debbie explains: 

“We are definitely releasing a ded- 
icated A120Q version of Tornado, 
scheduled for release mid to end 
March 94. This version will have 256 
cotours and PC standard graphics - 
and hard drive mandatory.” 

Registered users will be able to 
upgrade from the A500 version of 
Tornado to the dedicated version for 
a nominal charge, 

Digital Integration are 3 1 so devel- 
oping the Operation Desert Storm 
data disk but unfortunately it will 
only be compatible with the dedi- 
cated A 1200 version. This is sched- 
uled for May 94, 

This kind of after-safes support is 
fairly rare but hopefully other soft- 
ware publishers will take notice and 
change their rather blase attitudes. 


und expect bug-free, hard disk installable 
software. 

And tn insist that there are tew hard disk 
owners in totally untrue - and with the 
advent of the A1200 there are more hand 
disk users now than ever before? In a recent 
survey in Amiga Computing, 10 per cent of 
readers claimed they owned hard drives. 

It's about time software publishers 
stopped treating qs Amiga owners like 
brainiest! morons who have nothing better to 
do other than play arcade games and then 
copy them. 

Most of us have second disk drives, yet 
some companies still support only one drive 
with tw'o disk games Many own hard 
drives yet mosl Amiga software is not hard 
drive installable, 

And all of us want to be entertained with 
high quality, impressive software, hut still 
games are released that are bugged and 
lacking in originality. If the software pub- 
lishers have a problem with piracy, then 
they should sort it out, instead of making 
the rest of us loyal Amiga owners suffer. 

We are all responsible for the growth of 
this industry Ln some form or another and 
the sooner software publishers realise this 
the better. They are only damaging their 
own image and chances uf success in the 
future. 

bo, guilty parties, please take note and 
change your attitudes or expect to see more 
articles of this kind in future - something 
none of us want to happen

nyone who owns an A 1200 can't 
have failed to not ire that, even 
though it boasts an 020 processor, 
-rwd increase often isn't much better 
that of a 68000-based Amiga. 

'rkitig in AGA mode can prove a 
ire, especially with a measly 2Mb of 
RAM, raped, plundered and pillaged 
Sfw machine itself and any programs that 
■a nning at the time. 

The obvious upgrade L$ a Fast RAM 
ibn to relieve the strain on the chips, 
•is're still left with an Amiga that drags 
: and doubles over at die mere sniff of 
Tpllex 3D project, animation or game. 
Fortunately, GVP have the hardware that 
make even ait A400U owner turn green 
th envy - the A 1230 Turbo+ accelerator 
: RAM expansion with FPU (Floating 
*nS Unit). 

The hoard offers 4Mb of Fast RAM, 
pgradable to 32Mb using 32-bit Simm 
an 030 processor mnmng at 50MHz 
1 ait op tional FPU 6S882 [capable of per- 
lung decimal arithmetic calculations 
is times faster than the main processor), 
hatfery -backed clock and an expansion 
lector for modular additions to the 
pl230 Impressive, eh? 

1 >n first inspection the unit appears fairly 
•bust, complemented by a manual that is 
firth clear and concise with instructions 
• rrtlen with the novice in mind- An 
feproved trapdoor cover is also supplied, 
•moulded in order to compensate for the 
1 and shape of the A123D. 

The most arduous task in fitting the 
is getting it into the bloody expansion

I've 

get 


the power 


-lot beneath the A lift!. This is not a fault ot 
GVP but Ls instead due to poor design by 
Com mod me. 

Once the A123Q is in place and snugly 
connected to the expansion bus the driver 
software must be installed. As with all 
recent GVP products the installer disk is 
neatly designed and simple to use. There are 
.several programs on the disk which allow 
you to test the Fast RAM and view informa- 
tion about the board itself. 

Certainly the most important part of ilw 
- uH ', Y.ire is the Kickstart ROM remapping 
program which resides in the WBStartup 
drawer. When the software i- installed the 
A 1200 Kickstart i.s allocated an area of 32-bit 
Fast RAM, normally 512k which it can 
reside in . 

REMAPPING 

As the A123Q's memory 7 can be accessed 
far quicker than the ROM chips in the A12Q0 
this greatly speeds the Workbench up and 
the accessing of programs. However, the 
board must haw at least 4Mb of Fast RAM 
in order for the ROM remapping to succeed- 

With the board fitted and software cor- 
rectly installed the speed difference is 
instantly noticeable and quite shocking! 
Using a reliable benchtest program running 
the infamous Beach hall tcsl in which a 
beach ball is rendered on the screen, the 
accelerated A 1200 was 65 times faster than a 
standard A 1200 with no Fast RAM. 

Other tests produced similar results with 
the accelerated A 1200 far out-pacing the 


A 1 200 owners can turbo-charge their 
Amigas with the A 1 230 Turbo+, the 
most advanced accelerator and RAM 
expansion to date, says Steve White 


standard machine and simply wiping the 
floor with the A5QQ Plus. 

I [luvl'ylt, bench tests are erne thing - the 
true test comes with applications software, 
more so graphical applications which 
require extensive rendering times and rely 
heavily on processor power. 

The tests were performed using Imagine 
and Imagine FIT the latter utilises the FPU 
in the A 1230, A complex 3P image Was ren- 
dered using both programs and the time 
differences noted- Although the standard 
Imagine program performed relatively well, 
rendering the image m 14m 34s, the FPL 
version made swift work of the image ren- 
dering it in an amazing 2m 35s 

Apart from testing out the customary 
graphical rendering times the A 1230 was 
also tested with a variety of games, mainly 
Tornado and Formula l Grand Prix, 

Tornado, which is virtually impossible to 
play on a bog-standard A 1 200 performed 
admirably under the A1230. Even on maxi- 
mum graphic settings it was fast and 
smooth in every department. The same w as 
true of FIGP w r ith the cars hurtling around 


the tracks at hair-raising speed The A 1230 
Turbo* is a fairly expensive piece of equip- 
ment but the increase in speed is worth 
every penny. As a standalone machine, the 
A 121X1 i L fairly basic and somewhat lacking 
when it comes to rendering complex 3D 
shapes and rurgaing 3D intensive games. 

But the addition of the A 1230 turns it 
into a speed demon with unparalleled per- 
formance which even the A 41)01) has trou- 
ble matching. Once installed it will change 
your life forever and m.yke the impossible 
possible.

Image Engine brings 
professional features and 
a professional price tag 
to Amiga video.

Amiga Computing' April 1994 


posite or Y/C, and as 
Image Engine is 
designed with an exter- 
na] sync in mind, a time 
base corrector is essen- 
tial when using domestic 
VCRs. 

Our test was carried 
out with a Panasonic 
F590 S-VHS video 
recorder, one of the bet- 
ter household units, and 
though the card's real- 
time digitiser would 
grab "on the fly"; the 
sync signal from the 
VCR was not to Image 
Engine'* t iking, Using the Panasonic's 
perfect pause for grabbing reduced h oc 
levels to the point where the picture 
startrcl to roll, and only with the correct- 
ing influence of a IRC was Image Engine 
Comfortable with the input. 

In total, then, the ideal minimum set-up 
includes EH 00 worth of TBC or a svnc gen- 
erator, and £28? worth of RGB splitter (G2 
supply the Sony YR-10Q0 for this pur- - 
posek bringing the equipment budget in 
over £3,000 and putting the card well <wt 
of the enthusiast's price bracket So what 
professional benefits did we get for our 
money? 

Before using a TBC, grab quality from 
Image Engine was, if anything, poorer 
than the £300 VLab card and certainly no 
better than Rom bo's Vidi Amiga 24. Once 
the system settled down, however, and a 
higher quality signal was being used. 
Image Engine started to shine.

appreciable interlace flicker started to roll 
onto the bard drive for use with the Inuigica 
software, and before long I was able to start 
working in a productive fashion. 

Imagica's ease of use helps the process 
along quite nicely, and as paint packages 
go it is a smooth performer, though not 
quite up to the standards of IV Paint or 
TVPaini fr. Designed for the professional 
user, Imagica shamelessly apes the way in 
which Quan lei's Paintbox software oper- 
ates, with alt menus available from a pop- 
down pane], 

The package is divided into Several 
parts, each concentrating on an area such 
as Draw , Brush, Video, and Stencil, and 
without using the manual it is easy enough 
to get to grips with most functions. 

One surprising observation was that 
despite the 8Mb RAM and 3Mb VRAM

he whole thrust of the Amiga 
\ video market has always been 
to cut the huge price tags out 
f ‘"puter video work, and to this end 
-“ T .am of c heap and cheerful digitisers, 
■Socks, and 24-bit cards has flowed 
the manufacturers into the 
if hands of thousands of Amiga 
UrogTSphers. 

There have always been high-end 
fe ga add-ons aimed at the semi-profes- 
■ ind professional markets, though, 
*b i.l2 Systems have been responsible for 
t»eraJ of them, 

Starting with the successful 
Center range of high quality gen- 
•c>- keyers, and faders, G2 have 
Jed their range of products to cover 
** a bout everything the % ideo u ser might 
’ tf A gap in the range was left when 


the MasterPiece 24-hit caul was discontin- 
ued, and G2's respond is Image Engine, 

Fitting in any Zorro slot, linage Engine 
is a 32-bit graphic* card with on-board 
graphics processor, 3Mb VRAM to enable 
double buffering and the use of an b-bit 
alpha channel, and an optional 8Mb RAM 
The on-board processor is theTexas 
Instruments 34020, a dedicated graphics 
chip which can run at high speed, hut 
which requires software to be specially 
coded to take advantage of it. 

PROFESSIONAL 

Other system requirements soon put 
Image Engine well beyond the enthusiast 
market and into the professional domain. 
The board'* only video input in in the 
form of a component RGB port, so a video

► 

coupled to the TI34IJ2Q, Imagica couldn't 
be described as Lhe world's fastest paint 
package, and compares poorly in some 
respects with ECS Paint on the Spectrum 
24 / 38 - 

Most operations are smooth enough, 
but when flood fills or area filters are 
brought into play - never mind the air- 
brush feature speed suffers badly. To 
compensate for this, brush handling is 
vwy good. Sealing and rotation in particu- 
lar .in' easy and quick, and the skew fea- 
ture is also pleasingly- fast- 

Disappointingly, soft edged brushes 
aren't directly supported a sin FV Paint, 
though a sort of soft edging can be 
achieved through the stencil tool. Thus lat- 
ter Ls probably the best and most fully fea- 
tured tool himgiea can boast, and lends the 
videographer a fair degree of flexibility- 

Stencils can be set up using solid 
colours in the usual fashion, but with the 
use of three tolerance settings a great 
many more effects can be pressed into ser- 
vice. Sliders on the stencil window can be 
used to select chrominance (colour), lami- 
na nee (brightness), or difference as a per- 
centage of the area being masked so that 
the user can soft edge the stencil itself 



This won 3 work with the standard sets 
up, but when a linear keyer i>- used in 
combination with Image Engine, the sten- 
cil feature works with the alpha channel to 
provide 25b layers of bleed for on-screen 
graphics of all kinds. 

With the full kit i t is possible to produce 
finished video sequences to match many 
FV stations, but only digiLid keying is 
catered for internally, and this is much less 
effective. 

Text support is an area where Imagica 
at oqce impresses and disappoints, both 
bitmap and outline CompuGraphic fonts 
are supported, so the user can take advan- 
tage of the many superb typefaces sup- 
plied by shareware libraries, font handling 
is fait, and any oner-defined gradient can 
he applied to give the finished titles a 
snazzy appearance, but there are a couple 
tit bugs in the way text is handled. 

Typing directly over a live video signal 


is easy enough, a fact which enables the 
correct matching of colours, but once the 
first I me of text has bf’yn stamped down, 
all subsequent text suffers from screen 
corruption- 

The hug is an infuriating one and limits 
the use of text over graphics and video, 
and one can only hope that G2 sort it out 
as soon possible. 

Beyond this annoying glitch, text han- 
dling is actually very good. The user can 
set varying levels of anti-aliasing, and as 
all text is treated as a brush, it is possible 
to rotate, flip, and skew titles before 
stamping them down. 

In conduction with the varying rub 
through and transparency controls avail- 
able for all functions, it would he possible 
to create advanced text effects if only the 
bug were eradicated- 

On the main control panel, three sliders 
are used to set the speed at which a paint- 
ing effect is applied (of most use with the 
airbrush}, and the weight of paint to be 
used, 

In effect, this slider simply makes use 
of the board’s alpha channel to produce 
transparency effects which can he applied 
to all features from flood fills to text. 

Rub through is the most impressive 
option to use transparency, and works by 
"rubbing through" the foreground image 
to partly reveal the background image 
held in Image Engine's second 24-bit 
buffer. 

As a full screen effect, rub through can 
be used to blend two images, and when 


used with a text brush or Other complex 
shape it is capable of producing pretty 1 
snazzy results. 

Unfortunately, E magic a doesn't have a 
direct equivalent of lVFaitil's density tool, 
so soft edged text brushes and flood fills 
arc not possible. This is perhaps a tool 
which nnh' a minority of videographers 
would at first require, but it adLfs a new 
level of flexibility and should have been 
included in a package with profess Lnna.1 
aims and a price tag to suit, 

POWERFUL 

Another disappointment was the tex- 
ture feature, potentially the most powerful 
brush related tool in Imagica 's arsenal. 
Texture is used to grab a brush, then tile, 
fit. or map it to any shape the user vhnnms. 

In this way, TVPamt is able to give the 
impression that a brush (someone's face, 
for example] has been wrapped onto a 
sphere by simply fitting the image into a 
circle. imagica has this feature, but it was 
not implemented in die torrent version of 
the software. 

Only the tile method of texture map- 
ping works, a crude fill feature which can 
be used to create neat backgrounds from 
small brushes but which is nowhere near 
as flexible as the oppositions' luxLures. 
When the Fit and Map options are enabled, 
Imagica will have more of an answer to 
TVPamt, but for the moment it is Jet down 
in this area, 

I he remaining paint features, including 
smooth and smear, are impressive and fill 
the package out, but the filtering option is 
of most use. Using a rectangular filter or 
the gauss option any video grab can be 
cleaned up automatically to partly remove 
any inb’dwe jitter, and the Spbel f Liters cre- 
ate very nice embossed effects. 

In context, Imagica Isn't really good 
value for money when compared to the 
twwly priced TVPamt, but in combination 
with Image Engine's hardware features it 
does make for a good video production 
took 

For professional users looking to buy a 
complete system or a card which v. iU tit 
smoothly into an existing professional 
setup, Image Engine and Imagica make for 
a solid team. 

I hose mi a budget or who use mostly 
Y/C or composite video will probably 
want to sai'e a small fortune and go for one 
the Amiga's much cheaper. If W i T — J

W ith powerful graphics and 
sound facilities there was 
never any doubt that the 
Amiga was going to make an ideal plat- 
form for multimedia presentation work. 

Now heavyweight packages like Scala 
may have already set the standard at the 
top end of the marketplace. Cut as t.ir as 
multimedia authoring systems in general 
are concerned, the field is sta 1 1 wide open 
and some interesting new products arc 
beginning to emerge, 

One such offering, from Eagle 1'ree 
Software, is called Helm It's a complete 
multimedia authoring system that allows 
users, even I hose without programming 
experience, to create fully-fledged multi 
media presentations. 

Helm can also be used to build certain 
types of applications software such as 
simple database or interactive question- 
naire programs. Its approach, to the cre- 
ation of its electronic hooks is "object 
oriented' 1 , 


GRAPHICAL. 

This may sound oil very fancy hut what 
it really means is that you set up and 
define thu- pages of these books by creat- 
ing various graphical objects and moving 
them around using the mouse. 

The u^ual first step is to set up the 
overall framework by creating a Form def- 
inition. A Form is the name given to a 
book's master page and this can contain 
objects which are Inherited, ie shared, by 
all other pages of Hie hook. 

If, lor example, you wore creating an 
address book database, you might set up 
the form with Name, Address, and 
Telephone Number textfields so that these 
items appeared on every page of the book. 

flight basic types of Helm objects are 
available: Selectors, charts, shapes, but- 
tons, image fie Id -i, textfields, timers, and 
PlPfields (a specialist I v 24 Videographics 
card field). 

Within these basic categories all man- 
ner of parameters can he adjusted and, as 
you'll see from the example screenshots, 
there is plenty of scope for variety. 

Selectors are ready-made groups of 
buttons and text. There's a calendar, radio 
box, some sliders, a pop-up menu, clock, 
file selector, multiple choice requester, 
and various other ready-made units avail-

Paul Overaa 
takes a look at 
Helm, an 
impressive new 
piece of 
multimedia

software 




able. Charts let you display values graphi- 
cs llv using bar graphs, seattergraphs, pie 
charts and so on. Imagefields are used for 
picture type graphics and can be linked to 
either II bM pics/ brushes or ANIM-S tiles. 

Timers objects are useful tor creating 
kiosk-type automated books that move 
from page to page ot their own accord- 
Even the humble text field provides a bit of 
a surprise: In addition to the expected 
characteristics, such as being able to link 
them to Ascii files and use any font or 
colour, Hypertext link* can be added to 
words or phrases. 

Helm, has its own integral art package 


which provides all-common types of 
drawing modes and effects (gradient fills, 
adjustable ait brushes and so on). There 
are some nice extras like reduction of 
pictures to black/ white and antique 
(sepia I tow thrown in as well. 

Once images are incorporated into 
imagefields the facilities become rather 
different irorn conventional drawing 
programs like DFainl because the objects 
can then be moved around as separate 
entities 

Object creation and editing is 
extremely easy. Suppose on every page 
you want two Identically sized button 
gadgets labelled Last Page and Next Page 
to allow the user to move between the 
various page* of a book. 

Select the Edit Form menu option, 
choose the button gadget tool, and then 
use the mouse to mark out a rectangle of 
a suitable size. Helm automatically cre- 
ates a button gadget of that size for you. 

When this gadget is selected control 
points appear which enable you to move

within seconds. 

Once created. Other characteristics, sud 
as colour and gadget text, could then hi 
changed by double clicking on the 
and altering the parameters in the int 
maticm requester boxes that appear. 

These types of object creation steps 
continued until both the form and 
individual page layouts are deemi i 
satisfactory. At this stage you've bask 
created one or more pages of objects i 
the next step is to program' any obn-J

■ - if:-, dissolves, scrolls And wipes and 
a jn ever make various [>agv layers 
4 Ejects visible or invisible. 

case you're wondering why you 
it want invisible objects in a book try 
- idea for size. You could have a picture 
e map of the world on a page and 
* irregular polygon* around countries 
if nteresi 

■j then attach goto actions to these 
■I 5 ti objects that Muse a page of infor- 


mation about that country to be displayed. 
Render those polygons invisible sn that 
only the map itself is displayed and the 
not effect is that as a user clicks on various 
countries they'll be sent to the appropriate 
pages of information. Nuat eh! 

Hypertext link actions are treated in 
just the same way as other object actions. 
So,. Links created in text files can not onLv 
he set lo move to a different area of text 
but can cause other actions to be 
performed as well. 

All these things give the non-program- 
mer the ability to hook up different tasks 
to objects simply and easily. Needless to 
say these facilities on their own are, for 
many applications,, more than adequate. 

Helm has plenty of other goodies as 
well. There are menu creation options, 
genlock and CDTV commands. Books, 
pages, images, and re-ports can be sent to 
the printer or a PostScript device. A talk' 
ing people facility allows the narrator to 
be synchronised to animated figures. 

Five user levels are available which 


allow a book creator to limit the w r ay m 
which a book is used l these include a nav- 
igate., that is view only, mode for multime- 
dia presentations). Password protection is 
also available to keep end users from 
changing the user level. 

Helm's approach to book creation is a 
bit like the object-oriented interface used 
by, say, Inova ironic's. Power Windows, 
although far more powerful. 

There are a lot of facilities available 
and, as with all packages of this sitfe, vou 
call easily got .1 bit overwhelmed initially. 
During the first few days I got lost more 
than a few times and once even managed 
to reset the user level of one particular 
project to a browse -only stale which 
prevented further editing. 

The manual is tflrite good in this 
respect and there is a chapter that deals in 
some detail with common problems and 
their solutions. OK, so I panicked a few 
times, but overall the whole learning 
process was enjoyable and within a couple 
of day.H Helm had become both fun to use 


and a productive tool. 

But is it good bye or good buy? Well 
the latter, If you haven't guessed already 
I'm impressed with Helm. Pm not saving 
it's perfect in every respect but it is a well 
priced, clever, and very capable piece ot 
software. 

Equally important, there are no 
dongles or other multimedia um 
restrictions to contend with so r once your 
multimedia masterpieces are complete 
they are yours to do what you want with. 

In fact Helm provides a separate 
browser program that can be distributed 
freely to enable other Amiga users to n * ll lI 
Helm-created books. 

Helm runs on any Amiga with 1Mb 01 
more of memory and KLckstart 1.3 or 
higher but you need Release 3 and tht- 
AGA chipset to use all of Helm's features. 

The package comes supplied or three 
disks along with a fairly plain looking- 
but comprehensive and useful, A4 
manual. The files on the disks are packed 
but both floppy and hand disk installation 
(using the now standard Amiga installer 
program) is straightforwa rd. 

The version of Helm that 1 reviewed 
£vL44) did have a few bugs but let me 
emphasise that there w r as nothing 
bug-wise that I would describe as serious. 

WINDOW 

t found that an uncloseablc oulpui 
Window can occur when attempting, 
via A Re xx, to open books that do 
not exist, I also found that some of 
my external ARexx control script- 
were returning errors for no obvious 
reason, 

It turns out that the ARexx error 
indicator w r as not being set properly b^. 
Helm itself but having spoken to Eagle 
Tree Software I already know that thesf 
bugs, along with a few others that I hadn't 
beer able to find, are being fixed in the 
latest release. 

As with all multimedia authoring 
packages, the results you'll get from Helm 
will he proportional to the effort put into 
your w r ork, Make no mistake though; 
Helm itself will not hold you back - ] im- 
perfectly good enough for serious multi- 
media applications and as such it 
deserves to do very well 
indeed. 



Running on auto-pilot 


**elm has a definite feather in its cap in the form of its own 
v"yuaga, which allows you lo program objects to perform 
■rtiitranily complex sets of actions. 

The language is a rather strange mix of Basic, ARexx 
■'d an English phrase-styled database language, but it is 
: . mprehensive and provides a reasonable selection of 
ntrol structures. If-then testing, while, do-while and for 
: jps and even multiple choice case statements are all 
r^ovided. 

The language doesn't use variables as such; it uses things 
:ailed containers that can be used to store anything from 
■ umbers and text items to graphics images and music files. 

Container arrays are supported and the language com- 
" inds cover everything from dedicated book manipulation 


and multimedia actions, maths functions and disk I/O (includ- 
ing a posihonal file seek command), So specialised Helm sys- 
tem functions. 

At times the language, at least with simple scripts, looks 
almost like written English, as this loilowmg page movement 
example shows; 

fcfi feLtCUlp ' ri ah t array 
btgir 

3 D td flext pagt 
end 

You wouldn't, incidentally, actually have to write scripts lor 
performing these type of simple page turning operations 
because Helm has pre-programmed actions available for this..

■ EMU L ATI O N 


W hen A- Masi shipped lor the 
Amiga in 1989, it was am 
amazing accomplishment 
There was a litlle cartridge you could plug 
into the hack of your Amiga and turn it 
into ‘in almost completely compatible 
Macintosh, 

Sure, you were turning a multitasking, 
colour computer into a single- tasking 
black-and-white computer, but tor those 
who needed to bring home work from 
Mac programs such as PageMaker or 
Word, the cartridge was a godsend. 

For others, though, the Mac was pretty 
unexciting compared to the Amiga, and 
A- Max was just one of those devices that 
you bragged was available for your 
Amiga ho I never really considered buy- 
ing. Cut to 3994. The formerly boring-hut- 


case Macintosh has burgeoned into the 
colourful machine for the arty elite. Sure, 
Us latest attempt at learning to multitask Ls 
still rather pitiable, but the two colours of 
the original Macs have exploded into l& 
million. 

Mae software has gone from something 
that was great it sou wanted to write let- 
ters with so many fonts that they looked 
like ransom notes to some of the most cre- 
ative stuff available for personal comput- 
ers. 

Programs like Fractal Design Painter 
and Kai's Power fools are fascinating 
enough to entice even the most jaded 
Amiga user into wanting to run 
Macintosh software. 

Until recently, the only options for run- 
ning Mat software on your Amiga were 


A-Max II, an enhanced version of the orig- 
inal A- Max that took over your Amiga 
and was still limited lo black-and-white 
emulation, or the far more impressive 
f mplart hoard from Utilities Unlimited, 
which not onlv supported lull colour hut 
also let you run Mac programs concur- 
rent! y w idi Amiga software. 

Obviously, Km plant has been thf emu- 
lator of choice tor mo si users since its 
release. Well. Ready Soft's Simon Douglas, 
the first h 1 successfully emulate the 
Macintosh on the Amiga, didn't jus! sit 
htk k and let his product get passed by 

He's been hard at work, and the result 
is A -Max ]V r Colour, ReadySoffs competi- 
tor in the multitasking, colour Macintosh 
emulation arena. 

A-Max IV Colour is a Zorro IE card th.it 



Overshadowed by 
Emplant, the A-Max 
Apple Macintosh 
emulator returns with 
1 6 million colours, 
new software and an 
upgrade path. 
Denny Atkin takes a 
closer look 


will work in the A 1500 and higher I 
actually identical to the old A-Max 11 
board, except for new- software and n 
GAL chip which is replaced. You . 
upgrade an A-Max 31 Plus to A-Mu 
colour. However, the new software wn 
work on the older A-Max and A-Max 
cartridges, so A5W&OD/120G ow 
won’t be able to use the product- 

A-Max IV is available as a comp 
package, or as an upgrade to the A-Max 
Plus board. Note that once the boar : 
upgraded lo A-Max IV level, the older 
Max. II Plus emulation software will i 
longer run on it 

HIGHER 

On the Amiga side you'll need at teas* 
68020 processor (all colour Macs have i 
least an 020), 2Mb of tree RAM, an 
Amiga DOS 2-1 or higher. To ger decei 
performance you'll really want at te« 
■I Mb of fast RAM, and a hard drive ;» 
must - a Mac without a hard drive 
nearly useless. 

If you have a Commodore high-den? 
disk drive you'll he able to read and v> 
.Macintosh 1,44Mb disk 1 ; while running 
emulation - a handy and sometimes 
ess ary feature. 

Or the Macintosh side, you'll need 
secure a legal copy of the Mac's opera t r 
system. You'll need a set of 12S 
Macintosh ROM chips as found in the VU 
512Kc and Mae Plus; these should 
readily available for less than LllK). 

Although the emulation will teehni 
work with .Macintosh System 7, which 
be found on the on-line networks, it's v 
limited under that OS. requiring you

,„flj rfecj running profrsfinnnl inttmrr like Adobe rhulodllDp 

Amiga Computing April 1994 


A-Max iV is the obvious choice for owners of earlier A-Max equipment, since it's a ta 
inexpensive upgrade But what if you re buying a Mac emulator for the first time' 7 Shg| 
you buy A-Max IV or Utilities Unlimi1ed'& Emplant? Each board has advantages, bo 1 
depend on your emulation needs. 

As of ft is writing Empianl wins in the compatibility department. Because il use:' 
Mac l! ROM chips and duplicates Macintosh sound hardware on ils board, it does a 
o-ettc-r job running hardware-intensive applications like games. 

SimCrty 2000 runs fine on Emplant, while it only brings up a Wank screen on A-Mai 
Star Trek: 25th Anniversary, packed with digitised sounds on Emplant, is silent on 
IV - and it runs at about 1/5 speed on A-Max. EmplanTs graphics updates are taste: 
A-Max's. but otherwise the emulations run a! similar speeds. Emplant benchmarks 
remarkably taster in gome floating-point operations using the Mac Speedometer hr-* 
mark, but in actual operation the emulations feel about the same. 

And while Emplant s screen updates are faster it doesn't otter the really impressivE- 
useful multiple-monitor support thal A-Max IV does Also, A-Max IV offers large, sc 
virtual screens as an option: Emplant doesn't. 

Utilities Unlimited an? promising advanced file transfer capabilities for a future Errq 
update, but as ol this writing A-Max wins in that department. 

Both emulators allow you lo copy files between the systems, bul A-Max is capat* 
copying entire directories at once while Emplant lorces you to select each file individ .,1 
Algo. A-Max's clipboard support is a nice bonus. Emplant lorpes you lo manually choa

;rn off system caches- System 7.1 or 
| - is a better bet, and it should be 

*v ,ible from any Macintosh dealer. 

Installing tJu 1 board is fairly easy. First, 
9i course, you'll need to plug the Mac 
ROMs into your A -Max board. Tlien open 
»v>ur Amiga's case, remove the disk drive 
fable from your motherboard and attach it 
I the A-Max IV board. 

Attach another cable to the mother- 
Iwird, slide A-Max IV into a free slot, and 
dose your case. Installation of the vino la- 
■ ■ n miftware is effortless, as ReadySuft 
Uses Commodore's standard Installer 


application. Once everything's installed 
on the Amiga side of tilings, it’s time to set 
up your new Macintosh- First, you'll need 
to set up a hoot drive. 

You have three options for your system 
disk. The easiest way to get up and run- 
ning is to connect an actual Macintosh 
external SCSI drive to yoair Amiga’s SCSI 
controller Apple dealers sell these drives 
with System 7 l already installed, making 
it a p I ug-a nd-go proposition. 

Another option is to dedicate a parti- 
tion on an Amiga hard drive {SCSI or IDF) 
to the Macintosh emulation. Finallv, you 


can create a file device - a file on din 
Amiga drive that looks in the Macintosh 
like a real hard drive -but this i* ihe slow- 
est available option, 

Whichever option you choose, it"* 
much easier to get up and running with 
third-party controllers as A-Max IV now 
uses the Amiga operating system tolal^ to 
the drives, so you no longer oil'd to find a 
special .AMHD driver for your hard drive 
controller, Farliei versions of A-Ma* 
couldn't utilise Amiga DOS since they 
threw the operating system out when run- 
ning Mac emulation. 

If you have a high density floppy drive, 
installing the Mac operating system soft- 
ware works just like w r ith a real 
Macintosh. If you have only an S80k 
floppy drive, though, things will he a little 
more complicated. 

First of all. you'll have to special-order 
System 7.1 on low -density disks like 
most newer Macintosh software, Apple 
ship the operating system on high-density 
disks. 

Then you'll have to use the A-Max IV 
disk transfer program to copy all of the 
installation disks to temporary files on 
your hard drive and use those to install 
the operating system. As you can see. 
you'll save a lot of headaches if you hm a 
high-density driv e- 

Once the operating system is installed, 
you're ready to gel up and running, ’I our 
system will be essentially equivalent to 
whatever Macintosh model uses the same 
microprocessor as tn your Amiga 1 he pri- 




m..irv difference is that the A-Max IV 
board uses the old I2bk ROMs, a mixed 
ble.es ing. The 128k ROMs are less expen* 
sive and me ire readily available than the 
more recent 2bbk and ^ 1 2k ROMs, hut 
you II pay a bit in compatibility 

These ROMs don’t include Colour 
QuickDraw', so Ready So ft had to add soft- 
ware emulation of the Mac's colour graph- 
ics routine- to the A-Max software. A few 
applications, such as Adobe Photoshop 
2.5. require Colour QuickDraw in ROM 
and mnv be difficult or impossible to get 
running under A-Max IV. 

One of the biggest improvements over 
ear lint versions of A-Max is that this one 
doesn't take over your system completely 

you can run Macintosh and Amiga soft- 
ware simultaneously. 

PRIORITY 

You can ,v. ! ju-t the task priority and 
how it shares time with the Amiga side of 
things when running in the foreground or 
background. Von allocate a certain 
amount of memory (2,100k total 
hv default) to the Macintosh system 
software and INlT*, but after that the 
emulation dynamically a lie"- ales RAM 
from the Amiga's free memory pool as it 
needs it. 

You can now exchange data between 
the Mac and Amiga sides of your com- 
puter in a number nt ways. I he A-Max 
File I ransfer program runs under the Mac 
emulation and will copy individual files 
or entire directories between Amiga and 
Mac hard disks. 

Files car be copied without modified* 
tinn, or you can use one of the translation 
options. Text and PostScript options will 
translate text line ending* tor the appro- 
priate computer, while the less useful 
MacPaint translation Option will convert 
between MacPaint pictures -arid two- 
colour IFF images. 

Finally, MacBinary translation allows 
you to transfer Mac files you've- down- 
loaded using Amiga programs to the 
Macintosh side, using the MacBinary 


-_w much memory to allocate for Mac emulation; if you ailocate all your last RAM to the 
llac side of things and need it laler on the Amiga side, you'll have to shul dawn and 
restart the Mac emulation to change 1 the memory setting. 

A-Max IV allocates most o! its memory as il needs it automatically, so you can Just quit 
. articular Mac applications i( you need more RAM on the Amiga side 
T ho serial pods included standard on the A-Max board are only useful unde* Macintosh 
emulation Emplant's optional expansion ports also enhance the Amiga side of the com- 
; jter; you can use the serial ports for Amiga communications software, and you can 
■nach Amiga storage devices lo Emplant's SCSI controller. 

A-Max IV is the clear winner if you need to access low-density Macintosh disks, even 
■~ough that capability is more limited in this new version. Right now Ihe hardware adaptor 
needed lo read and write SOOk floppies using Emplanl is unavailable, and the only option 
to allach a real Macintosh BQOk. floppy drive using an old A-Max cartridge or a home- 
- jilt interface The ROMs needed for A-Max IV are more easily found find lass expensive 
man Ihe ones necessary lor Emplanl, but ihey don't seem lo be quite as compatible wilh 
colour Macintosh software despite Ready Soft's patches, 

Finally. Utilises Unlimited are promising new emulation modules for Emptant, whereas 
^-Max IV Colour is a Macintosh emulator only The Apple II emulator lor Emplanl is com- 
plete (see last month's issue), and Utilities Unlimited is bard at work on a 496 F*C emula- 
tor. However, always use caution when making a purchasing decision based or promised, 
rather lhan shipping, capabilities.

Does it work? 


A- Max IV is packed with new fealures, but how well does il work? Any program so radi- 
cally upgraded is hound lo have a few kinks to work gut, and A-Max IV is no exception 

Initial releases of the software have been somewhal flaky on Ami§a 4000/040 and 
other 68040-baaec machines, locking up inexplicably on same systems and causing 
errors On ihe SYS: pa ni lions of glhgr&. ReedySoft are hard af work on finding the rea- 
sons for these problems and should have them corrected by ihe time you read this. 

Of bigger concern is graphics compatibility. Of all Ihe serious applications that t tried 
only Photoshop 2.E had any problems (the older v2.0 works line). But the same couldn't 
be said for games, \ was unable to get SimCity 2000. Maelstrom, or Star Trek: 25th 
Anniversary to work aropely under A-Max fV, allhough all worked fire under ihe Emplant 
emulator Star Trek adually did load, but was unpl&yably slow. Then again if you have 
an Amiga, who needs Mac games?

informs don to make sure the Mac s infor- 
mation forks are retained. 

New IQ A-Mftk IV is the ability to trans- 
fer text between the Amiga and Mac sides 
of the computer using the system clip- 
board. Just make sure that the Finder is 
the active program on the Mac side and 
you'll be able to copy Lind paste between 
your Macintosh software and ary Amiga 
programs that use the standard system 
clipboard. 

Note that this capability works only for 
text: graphics and other data can't be 
transferred via I he clipboard. 

Along with multitasking, the most 
attractive improvement in A -Max IV is 
full colour support. How much colour 
capability you gel depends on how your 
Amigj H equipped graphically. If vour 
Amiga has the original ECh chip set. 
you'll be able to run in up to lb colours - 
not a huge improvement, 

RETflIUA 

AGA -equipped Amiga 4IM1 machines 
support 2, 4, la, or 256 colours, It you 
have a Gf xBase video card, Picasso 11, or 
Retina board plugged into an EX Nor AG A 
machine, you can run in 256 colours or full 
24-bit, 16 million colour mode. 

If you need Macintosh emulation for 
applications such as Fractal Design 
Painter that benefit from 24-hit colour, 
you']] definitely want to add a video 
board. E-'nr -tuN like desktop publishing 
and Excel, though, you'll find 25b colours 
sufficient, 

One really neat feature that real Macs 
have is support for multiple video boards. 
If you plug two video cards in a real 
Macintosh, you can run two dr more mon- 
itors off one machine and move the mouse 
pointer back and forth between them, 

A -Max IV implements this useful fea- 
ture on the Amiga in a couple of ways. 
Firs t of all, if you have two monitors one 
for standard Amiga video and one for 
your graphics card - and you can set them 
up to work just like a real Macintosh, 
moving your pointer and dragging win- 
dows from one monitor to the other, 

But even if you don't have multiple 
physical monitors attached to vour 
Amiga, you can open multiple Mac 
screens on the system. One setup 1 use 
fairly often is to ere rite an 800 x 600 
Super72-mode 256-colour screen to hold 


my Photoshop 2,1) editing screen, and a 
second 640x480 16-coiour Productivity- 
mndc screen to hold all the Photoshop 
tool windows* 

That way 9 can have my editing win- 
dow unobstructed, but easily and quickly 
access all my toob. A-Max thinks the sec- 
ond screen is a monitor to the right of the 
first one, so to change tools 1 just move- thv 
pointer off the right edge of the screen. 

The second screen instantly pops to the 
front, 1 select my tool, and drag the 
pointer back off the left side of the screen, 
retu rnin.g me to my ed iring screen. 

Video speed is only fair using the 
native chips in the standard, Accurate 
refresh mode The Optimised mode is 
faster, but it achieves this speed by skip- 
ping some screen updates when il falls 
behind; it's not suitable for Quicklime ani- 
ma lions or games. 

Finally, there's a Paranoid mode that 
improves compatibility with some appli- 
cations that write directly to video hard- 


ware, but when it's turned on it dramati- 
cally slows screen updates. 

The A- Man IV board includes two KS- 
422 serial ports Thr-e can be used to 
attach Macintosh modems and printers, or 
to connect the board to a Localialk net- 
work, SANA-ll-compatible Ethernet 
boards are also supported for connecting 
to Ethernet networks. 

Unfortunate!) . no drivers are included 
for the Amiga side, so you can't use the 
RS-422 ports as extra serial ports for vour 
Amiga when you're nut running the 
emulation, 

A -Max IV can also use your Amiga's 
built-in serial and parallel ports. 1 had no 
problem printing to my parallel printer 
using the public domain DeskJet 
3.1 driver, but 1 experienced occasional 
lockups when using the Amiga's serial 
port with Macintosh communications soft- 
ware. 

Communications were flawless when ] 
used a Mac modem cable to connect the 
same modem direct])' to the A -Max 

Old versions of A -Max would translate 
Image Writer printouts to Epson format for 
printing tin dot matrix printers, but the 
results were poor at best, 

If you can't find a Macintosh printer 
d rivet for your printer. A- Max IV gives 
you two options- First, you can select the 
ImageVVn ter driver from the Chooser 
and have A-Max create an IFF 7 image of 
the bitmap that would have been sent 
to the Image Writer; you can then load 
this, into an Amiga pirtnt or desktop 
publishing program and print it from 
there. 

Although A-Max IV has much better 
hard drive support Shan previous ver- 
sions, floppy support suffered with the

upgrade. Apparently the hard 
isn't capiable of reading the oddly io 
ted Mac SOGk disks when mu It ha-, 
Amiga and Macintosh progrj 
so Keadyboft only supports n. • 
1,44Mb high density disks under 
emulation. 

Not only will it not read Mac-fo 
HCHJk disks under the emulation, but it 
can't handle 800k disks formatted 
earlier versions of A-Max. 

To transfer software on 800k d 
you'll have to use the A-Max TV 
Transfer program, which copies flo 
to virtual disk files in your Devs: d 
tory. When you boot Hie emulation 
Files appear on your Finder screen just 
if the actual disks were inserted; you 
then run the installation prog re m* or 
the files to your hard drive. 

High density floppies can be trn r 
entiv exchanged between A-Max \\ and 
real Macintosh. For directly accessing 
density disks created with A-Max IV 
have two options, 

UNIQUE 

The first is to format 800k disks in 
unique format that can only be read K 
Ma>, IV equipped Amigas. The second 
to use a special 720k format that can 
read by any Macintosh equipped vm 
1 ,44 Mb SuperDrive, 

The latter option works well in 
situations, unless you need the C’ 
80k of storage. In that case, you'll h aw 
copy the files to an 800k virtual d 
file, then use the disk transfer progr 
to copy that to a Mac-format 8 
floppy. 

As mentioned Libove, hard disk su 
is improved, Also, tin- SCSI frefere 
feature can Fre used to mount other 
devices on the Macintosh side, i w as 
to use this feature to run various Mat n 
timedia titles using an NEC CD-R 

drive, 

A-Max IV does an admirable job 
rung Mac applications, and hope ft 
ReadySuft will be able to address som 
the graphics incompatibilities in a tu 
update, 

This is a worthy contender r 
new eniuiatin purchasers (see f 
"Competition" box though), L ^n.d is a m 
have for those who own 
A-Max II Plus boards.

s you csn see from the price, 
VidesjSean is definite;^ a pro 
product which justifies the addi- 
in vestment courtesy of several 
r features such as video mixing and 
<i ted transitions - the like of which

Although the VideoBlendcr was primar- 
so ft ware eon trolled, VideoSean is 
ty hardware* based. However if you 
the control differences both prod- 
are surprisingly similar. 

L Ik*- the Video Blender, VideoScan often, 
simultaneous input and mining ot two 
signals, S-VHS and VH5 transcoding,

jives,. 

Better still, transition between tire vari- 
states is given added glamour via a 
'Bn special effects generator which pro- 
‘c-s horizontal, vertical, circular 
inverted wipes either singly nr in 
bination. 

As you can see from the photography, 
bming and fading between the various 
ils is handled by assorted Aiders on the 
1 panel of the unit. 

! Eowever thanks to the special effects, 
hardware control is supplemented by an

Input and 
output 

As you've probably gathered 
VideoScan Isn't exactly short in 
the WO department, As mentioned 
both composite and S-VHS are 
supported on all Video ins and 
outputs via high quality BNCs and 
5-VHS mini DINS. 

In addition the ability to 
transcode between 5-VHS 
arid composite - allowing a com- 
posite input lo be combined with 
Amiga graphics and output as S' 
VHS, Of vice versa is prelty 
impressive. 

Monitoring the various signals is 
always important and here again 
VideoScan scores well with both 
VGA and med-res monitor ports 
for the Amiga display, in addition 
composite and S-VHS loops 
provide separate monitoring 
of the Video 1 input signal if 
required. 

Add to that a separate hey MO 
connector which will accept or 
supply a key signal to or from an 
external video system and you 
have a very comprehensive video- 
graphic environment suitable 
tor amateurs and professionals 
alike. 



Paul Austin examines the latest in 
Amiga videography as VideoScan 
arrives on the scene 


Mixing 

musts 

Unfortunately combining both video sig- 
nals Isn't as straightforward as jusl 
plugging a composite or Y,'C cable into 
the second Video In. 

In order to initiate mixing both video 
signals must first be passed through an 
external video mixer or TBC (time* 
based corrector). Unfortunately both 

I methods require heavy additional 
investment which in Ihe case of a TBC 
will leave little change out of CSOO. 

Assuming you have the necessary 
hardware, connection becomes slightly 
more invoked with either the composite 
or S-VHS signals connecting to video 1 
as normal. 

However the signal must then be 
passed onto the TBC via the loop out- 
put option At the same lima the second 
video signal is passed to the TBC 
directly The two are then combined 
and passed onto the Video 2 input. 

If all's well you should be able to dis- 
solve and mix between the two signals 
using the same faders and mixing 
effects as previously employed during 
basic genbcklng operations. 

The only limitation in the mixing 1 
department is the inability of VideoScan 
to transcode when mixing 


so adjustment on the fly isn't really on the 
cards. 

Due to the entirely hardware-based con - 
fro! system, actually setting it up is very 
straightforward, I ike aft genlocks its pri- 
mary concern is connection to the Amiga's 
23-pin RGB nut. 

Once safely plugged -in you simp I \ 
select the Amiga as the power source via a 
small flip switch which toggle* between 
bypass or off. Amiga, and external 

'The external option requires a stan- 
dalone pow er supply 
which isn't included. 

However this 

shouldn't be necessary 
unless you 're running 
a smaller, heavily 
expanded machine. 

Aside from the 


Amiga's RGB and power, the only other 
essential is at least one Video In, In this 
slate you have a basic genlock setup which 
with the assistance of the fader* can pro- 
duce all the standard genlock effect* for 
titling, animated logos and dissolves - 
either full or partial - between the video 
and computer signals. 

in order to general*: the required combi- 
ng bon you simple select composite or S- 
VHS input and choose Key on the output 
control panel Now if you move to the d is-

more exotic effects you'll icqum.- the assis- 
tance of a second video input, Once 
installed you horizons expand consider- 
ably with access to all the initpul options - 
sole output til the first or reference video, 
Amiga only output, nr a combination of 
the v id eo and Amiga outpiti 

] fnwever most important of all is the 
fourth option which enables you to mix 
directly between the two incoming video 
signals. In this state the dissolve faders 
and mixing effect* apply to the two video 
signals rather than the genlocked combi- 
nation of Amiga and Video 1 •

COMPETITION 


There’ll be six lucky winners who'll each take 
home a set of the first game from each of the 
six series mentioned here, all from the new 
Kixx XL Sierra range of titles. 


Get your Kixx 
out of this! 


SIERRA 


The new range includes the Space Quest, King's Quest, Hoyle s Book of Games, 
Police Quest, Quest for Glory and Leisure Suit Larry series. The first and second 
releases of all these series are out now, 

The Kixx XL series has grown from the original Kixx series aiming to provide a range 
of top quality, licensed titles at affordable prices, providing premium branded 
products from various well known software houses costing from £1 2.99 to £16.99. 

This selection bridges the gap between premium, full price games and budget 
software. The motto is 100 percent quality, 100 per cent value, nothing compro- 
mised, and the brand has continually dominated the top slots in the Gallup charts.

fuming to the trusty pages of 
d Computing, you continue your

There's a wealth of games and utilities 
there in the public sector that unldrtu- 
require a little more work than just 
mg the tiles to the hard drive. 

H'ilh all the files installed in their own 
r and the assign lines written, there 
’.till problems that mav arise Thesim- 
ract is that there can be certain es.wn- 
- vs tern files on the original disk that 
'E transferred over and reed to be 
manually, 

WORTHWHILE 

To make the next process easier or 
df and for future disk and directory 
agement, it's a worthwhile invest- 
■ Lti hu\ a disk and directory manager 
' will help you sort and transfer files 
ten different directories {as in hard 
f. floppy and optical, but I'll save that 
lanation for a later date...). 

You can pick one of these up from 
reputable PD libraries for a very rea- 
ble price and if, like us in the office, 
want the best then Directory Opus is 
ideal choice.

Don't panic, these simply contain cer- 
tain files for running the various pro- 
grams already cm the hard drive Once 
both have been brought up, first of all 
compare their Libs files. 

As with ..ill the drawers (Devs and the 
like), certain files may be present on the 
original: disk that aren't on the hard disk.

This can easily be rectified by copying the 
file acrciS:-, |0 the matching d .rawer and 
thereby installing it, It's usual for many 
games to have particular libraries essen- 
tial to their operation and without them, 
they won't run, If this doesn't work then 
st's a case of ploughing through the other 
drawers looking for the differences 

You can avoid a potentially disastrous 
situation bv making sure that you never 
replace the same file with what seems to 
be another identical file if you decide to 
move a large section across. 

WORKBENCH 

Some of these seemingly identical riles 
are in fact written for earlier versions of 
Workbench and if put in place of die cor- 
rect one, could seriously mess up other 
programs that already Work quite success- 
fully as they are.. 

After all this is done and you've reset 
the machine, try clicking on the game or 
utility icon to sir if it now boots ir^with 
all the tiles in place. It the pesky little 
sucker still insists on not budging then it 
may well only be possible to boot up from 
Shell - move your pointer over to the 


Shell Icon and open it up. 

Type in CD DHO I The dhO refers to the 
volume where the game or utility is 
stored); and DRAWER (which drawer the 
software is in) and hit the return key. 

Type in DIR (directory) and the con- 
tents ot the drawer will be listed. Look for 
a file name that appears as if it could be 
executable (as in run) such as RUN 
(LAME. Once spotted, simply type it In 
and the software should at last boot up 
ready for you to play Of use to your hearts 
content, 

If you're having problems identifying 
the required file, type in e<J 
DHIW .startup- sequence and look 
through which files the computer needs 
to get the program going. 

Finally, when exiting Shell, don't save 
what you've done - it's not necessary to. 
Simply hold the right mouse down and 
go to the pull-down menus at the top of 
the screen Select Quit and you'll exist 
Shell without saving anything you 
shouldn't just in case you accidentally hit 
a few wrong keys. After that, fingers 
crossed and away you go ...

Don't Go Down into 
the Cellar 

Available from PD Soh * Dte* Mo 3509 

After last monlh's Commodore plug 
thanks to the ray-traced delights of 
Craig Callings 1 ? Wean CD Machine. I 
wasn't expecting to see such an 
ambitious animfllion for rather a long 
time. 

As usual. I'm happy to eat my words 
with this offering from the US of A, 


Coming on a substantial nine disks 
and requiring a mere 7Mb to run. this is 
a colourful anim about a shorl trip 
down in lo the cellar. 

Seen from the point of view of the 
victim, we creep down the basement 
stairs and have a good poke around 
with horrific consequences. The end 
result is 15 seconds of 24-bit graphical 
excellence that, while lacking in the 
plot department, yet again shows what 
can be achieved with a high-end 
Amiga.

Presented in a scries of menus, the user 
is able to access information on the Allies, 
the Nazis and the event itself, Using text 
and maps, these categories are split down 
further into more options to give a solid 
overview of the battle where 2,500 Allies 
lost their lives. 

Ideal fur students wanting to find out 
more on the subject in a simple, easy-to-

explains instead of exploiting. 


Morton 
Strikes Back 

Programmed by: 

David Parsons 

Available from: David Parsons 

Colourful, well-defined graphics are the 
first thing to hit you when booting up 
Morton Strike* Back - a fun, professional- 
looking platformer program in the vein o3 
James Pond. 

Taking elements of jump-'em-ups from 
across the ages. Mnrfon is a cute character 
with a large green nose, slick legs and 
arms and little else. The action revolves 
>implv around leaping from platform to 
platform, grabbing coins and other such 
bonuses while trying to make it to the exit 
at the end of each level. 

Along the way, various beasties in the 
shape of snakes, Birds and ut her parapher- 
nalia obstruct your path which can mostiv 
be dispatched by jumping on their heads 
(ahh, that old chestnut). 

The gameplay is addictive and fun and 
contains a fair challenge with sixty levels 
for you r money set in different areas. Vv ith 


D-Day 

Programmed by: AM Cooke 

Available ham: AM Cooke 

With Schindler's List on the way,, the topic 
of the world wears and their remem- 
brance. or more so how they should be 
remembered, has raised certain questions 
about turning what was an horrific time in 


world history into entertainment. 

One thing that has always struck me 
about tire PD are the various educational 
packages that handle this kind of material 
with an intelligence and responsibility 
that informs arid keeps the events that lost 
millions of lives in perspective. 

D-Day w a Hypertext-created guide to 
the famous day when the ALSies landed on 
the shores of Normandy to drive the

Taking vour robotic "'bat' 1 , you have

Animal Land 

Programmed by: Mick 
Wilson 

Available from: Mick Wilson 

The key element to any educational pack- 
age on a computer is that it has to be fun 
above anything e I se . No matter h n w 
much information is crammed onto one 
disk, if the proceedings aren't actually 
enjoyable to play then there is little hope 
for any toddler ever gleaning and retain- 
ing knowledge from the whole experi- 
ence. 

Animal Land is definitely fun to play 
and is presented as a series L if logic prob- 
lems. Fhe user is presented with a land- 
scape or farmyard and a series of 
numbers are dotted round the screen - 
one on .1 branch, ihc other in the pond 
and so on . 

The computer asks in a flat and emo- 
tion less voice where a particular animal 
would be such dh an owL In this case, 
press the number that is on the right place 
on the sc roe 1 . VouTI then be told if you're 
right and the owl appears sitting on the 
branch. 

After a couple of these- scenarios, the 
program, moves onto a memory test 
where the pupil has to remember which 
number Corresponded to which animal. 
This is difficult but again useful tor sharp- 
ening [he young grey cells. Attracting an

Humungous 

Adventure 

Programmed by: 
Matthew Woodroof 

Available Inam: Matthew Woodnocf 

Willy, for everyone's information, is a float- 
mg bodiless purple head who's spent an 
age and a half hovering in front of his tele- 
vision screen vegetating quite happily. 

Hu I things have become just n tad con- 
fusing. Apparently., the government has 
banned public transport and makes the 
good citizens of whatever time, place and 
era walk through bomb -Laden mazes on 
their way to work.,. 

lTm. suffice to say [ threw the plot out ot 
the window and focused on the actual 
game itself. The premise Is simple enough - 
guide Willy, said hum of ihe title, round the 
screen with the mouse, grabbing diamonds. 

Bombs am laid out to make life difficult 
and indeed, stop Willy permanently. 
Fortunately, power-ups in the form of easier 


The Discovery

Available from Jotvik Public Domain 
Disk Mo UT0272 

Another educational package for this 
month concerns itself With the scientific 
facts and history of the atom and its 
subsequent misuses and achieve- 
ments. 

A multiple choice quiz is presented 
at the end of the entire session to see 
how much ihe user has managed to 
soak up. Disk accessing and swapping 
is a little annoying but fortunately, it s 
possible to install both disks on hard 
drive. 

Packed with text, digitised stills and 
animations illustrating most aspects of 
the broad subject from the likes of 
atomic structure and nuclear fusion to 
isotopes and the hydrogen bomb, The 
Discovery of Ihe Atom is ideal for the 
older students

Demos must be a difficult thing to do

and tighter steering, extra lives and even 
level clearance aid the player towards vic- 
tory. Presented in a series of increasingly 
difficult screens, Willy's Humungous 
Adventure is a taxing piece ot software 
that's a real challenge hut immensely frus- 
trating at limes - there's a time Limit to 
comph'tL' each screen and the controls 
using the mouse need time and patience to 
make for steady steering and the clearing 
of obstacles. 

The net result, though, is a addictive 
and off-the-wall idle - special merits have 
to go to the sound FX. Willy lets out a loud 
"yeah" whenever he grab* a diamond and 
a smile creeps across his face, A drum roll 
also accompanies every dec is ion made on 
the Options screen which all adds to the 
off-beat effect. 

There's a definite Jeff Minter-ish fed to 
the whole affair and for tk.it reason plus 
the enticement of a truly challenging game 
lhat ever comes with its own comic, 
Willy's big one is definitely worth a long, 
hard look.

Regular reader* of this column will proba-

no doubt be pleased that the pack has now 
been increased to 11 disks with a few new 
programs to feast the eyes L md finances on- 
For example. Share Manager allows the 
user to keep a track on your share portfolio 
- the only problem being that prog can 
only handle numbers up to $1(1,000,000, 


Then again, it you had that much mtaf 
you wouldn't need !li look after \ 3

Feature: Gremlin Profile..,-*-. *-,108 

We see what makes the Sheffield based software house tick 
and take a sneaky glance at their forthcoming release 5 





Gremlin in 
the works 



though he was in a bit of a huwy at me lime 

Jfm wb managed ro catch the industrious Ian 
Stewart and sal him down for a chat about i J e 

• M the universe and everything. 

Ian first sladed out working for Laskys a h*gh strset 
rEtail outfit that stocked computers, Making his way up Ihe 
ladder to become group manager anti In change of five 
slores Ian noticed that there was a definite lack of support 
scftwane-wse in the sleety expanding computer martel 

Ian got some cash together and decided lo set up a 
shop selling software called Just Micro He ihen saw ihe 
massive cpportuniiies in actually predue ng the games 
software He quickly fourd people lo produce the games 
and thus Gremlin Graphics was horn, 

Gremlin's first ever game appeared on the good cl' 
Commodore 64 in 19B4 and was called Monty Pigeon 
which was incidentally programmed by Tony Growth* 
who more recently has made Ns name wilh games like 
CapPve and Liberation, 

Compiling against the likes ol Ocean and Imagine 
way back in ihe mid-80s was something Ian en|oyod. He 
look a ve?y active role in producing most of Gremlin's 
produds back then and luckily slid manages to do the 
same new, although obviousJy he's not as involved as 
he was before. 

Ian lists Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge, ZddI and 
Premier Manager as games that made Gremlin step up a 
gear and move into league wtlh the big boys of She com- 
puter software industry, 

He doesn't actually have a favourite game although 
tie's happy to mention Zoo! simply because it was and slill 
is Gremlin's biggest selling game. 

When asked about ihe tuture of ihe games industry, 
fan predicted that most convenes will start to lighten their 
belts. He also foresees that larger groups will pin forces to 
make the best use of up and coming technology such as 
the CD formal, plus there will be lols more corporate 
lie-ins. 

Gremlin's MD also says lhat they have no desire to 
slop developing for the Amiga simply because the 
machine has proved to be so successful for them. He also 
deems the GD32 to be a very good prospect. This is 
hacked up by Ihe fact that Gremlin have some CD tides 
currently in development although it's a i very hush-hush 
at the moment and he wouldn't tell me anything aboul 
them. 

Whon asked about his what he likes aboul the games 
industry Ian said he appreciated the challenge and cro- 
aftwenoss ol ihe job. When asked about the other sde of 
Ihe con he said rhal he doesn'1 like ihe numoer of comput- 
er mags available and could walk into a shop pick up six 
magazines and couldn't lell wh ch one was which - 
although he did say that he liked Amiga Cvmputmg 
because it Iries lo be that ftte bit different from ihe norm, 
so a big slap on the back lor us methinltf. 

My final question to Ian was about the future of Gremlin 
Graphics to which he simply replied 'Our commitment 
towamds the games industry speaks for fself." 


Gamer gives yon yet another 
low-down on what makes a 
software house tick, Jonathan 
Maddock talks to two of 
Gremlin’s prime movers about 
the past, the present and the 
future, while Simon Clays takes 
a sneaky peek at two of the 
firms forthcoming releases, 
K340 and Hero Quest 2

Gremlin Previews 

Since the major success of games like Zool, Utopia 
and the Lotus titles you might think that the 
Gremlin Graphics team have been sitting back and 
resting on their laurels. This couldn't be further 
from the truth! Simon Clays investigates two of 
their forthcoming releases 

K240: Utopia 2 


1 ecl 
Zool 3 
fVsmrer Alpnogef 


Back in 1991 Gremlin released a title in ihe God gome 
br-acltei. Somewhat of a fusion of concepts from Sim City and 
Populous,. Utopia sal you in command of a smuggling planet 
colony in llw frontiers of space. 

Equipped only with the bare minimum 
of equipment and resources, youc aim 
was to expand the society on your planet, 
while opposing potential! ih rents from 
edwf lifeforms. 

Utopia was an extremely popular title 
on il$ initial re ease and hos entered 
many a gamer's half of fame as their __ ftemier Monoaer 2 
number one title m this genre. Wed, twe UisposaWe H&r C 
years on Utopia is about to spawn o ” 
sequel in the unlikely tided K2J0, 

Set m the year 23SGAD, the Terran 
Empire has expanded into the majority 
of the known galaxy, ond controls over 
50 star systems 

The story develops with mankind 
encountering several alien species and 
eventually combining technologies in 
a quesl to reach the stars 

However, ihe Empire has run into 
hand times, with intercolonial argu- 
ments erupting throughout the star 
systems, escalating into minor wors. 

following these minor skirmishes, 
communication networks began fj 
break, down and natural resources 
got scarcer because of overmining cn 
inhabited worlds. 

As this situation magn ifietf. so the corporate-controlled 




worlds began to hoard their resources and the breakdown of 
the Empire started. 

Solvation come in th# form of an imperial exploration fleet 
iha* hod departed for the Larger Mggdlenic Ctaud [a small 
demi -galaxy that orbits out own I some dO yean earlier. On 
its return it reported the discovery of hundreds of star sys-

Of most impartBfKi lo the Empire was the fad thgt ritese 
sttif groups were danyrly populated with vduable nesaunss 
that were much needed by ine Empire and could wWy see 
than into the next millennium. 

Aho, there were a whole host of new wnknqwn exes that 
hod never been torched by human hands that could enpand 
the technology of hum cm kind 

With the pc craped of billions of tonne* of ore waiting to bt- 
mined, cokmies started to pop up oil over this once uncharted 
regton ol space. 

Wilhin ten. years the corporations hod established major 
fields and were shipping bock large quantities of ores. But, as 
well as the major company. licences were granted to inde- 
pendent traders. 

They were etoOuraced to futitd colonies with the under 
slondirvg (hot they got to keep 30 per cent d d*y revenue that 
wo* generated from are sales. 

It's at ’his stage that you're going to enter mb the foray. 
When K240 s completed you'll lake on the rale of one such 
independent who has recently established a paneering colony 
In an uninhabited sedion of the Magellanic Cloud 

Your missions are all going to plan, until one of your scout 
ships disappears. At first you're conviriced just a system tail 
ure is to blame for rhis phenomenon, until another one of your 
ships is prated by cm alter* cnah. 

As the commander of the colony you will be sal severed 
objectives, which will have to be managed and scrutinised 
very closely if you ore ta be successful 

First and most important will be the exploration oF the 
Cloud for ores and the expansion of yOuf colony and yevr 
mining operation. 

Also, you will have to maintain the day-ltxday running or 
your colony, investing time and money mto developing scisv 
iifk research into new inventions. 

These breakthroughs ta technology will encourage batter 
productivity, which will in tern boost the supply rate to the 
workforce. 

As wdl Qi the Missive workforce you employ, there is also 
the development and deploy ment of your colony's militia to 
take care of. 

K240 is set to test yc^r strategical abilities and si ills 0* 
people management, On the one hand you'll hove over 40 
different stytes cf bu Iding to manipulate, while you juggle 
your exploration of up lo 2d asteroids per sector with be 
other 

You'll also have to dispense with gr control he six different 
alien races ihot inhabit the region around you. To do this 
you! have to exuund your technology hose and improve your 
munitions plants to facilitate the diherenl ships and missiles 
you II be oapobfo of manufacturing. 

K24G will also include digitised speech., exospheric sound 
effects ond o very impressive cinematic opening sequence, but 
it is not going to be a game for the faint hearted, and you're 
going to hove your work cut Oul for you with the fovd of intel- 
ligence and strategic qualities the enemy are to be pro-* 




about to give birth to a sequel in the shape ol the He" 
Masters series. First to see the light of day wJ be the

ous two efforts were viewed from (he side untf 
Krisalis thought that they weren't going fa gain 
anything by producing yet another gne 

Unashamedly inspired by Sensible Soccer, 
Krisalis have created o football game that is 
mewed from above. You might thin It rhal there's 
nothing new about foal because Sensible did it 
first end did il best, but you would be wrong 
because Manchester United Premier League 
Chpmpsions is the game which Sensible Soccer 
should ve b«fl: arid never was-, 

Whereas Sensible Soccer was e eartom-like 
and mare arcade -based game, K'isolis.' new 
piece of software is a true football game for true 
football fonalics, It could almost be called a 
management simulator and this is because it has 
a huge strategy element to it. 

"nis is all thanks to Krisalis's Tacti-grid sys- 
tern The grid lets you decide where and hgw you 
want your players Id play, for h stance, you can 
moke up any formation you want nnd unlike 
most fooiball games (hey wi! slick la ihiy

You could have all your team in alrgck which 
will leave massive gaps in your defence, hul at 
least your team will slick to lhi$ system until you 
decide to change it. That's just one way of play- 


ng topi perhaps you d never use, but it i iustrates 
foe pa ml foal your ieoin will do exoelfy what you 
fell (hem. 

A much better and more practical example 
would be to tell your full hacks what they should 
do. 5houd (hey stay back in defence or do you 
want them running up the wings to put crosses in

is yours.

■each one of these players has his own defined 
skill levels.

Ryan Giggs, as on example, hw most oF bis 
ratings at foe maximum level whereas players 
from foe lower divisions will have lower dull rql- 
ngs, Most other football games tend to have all 
the players at the some skill level., but by giving 
individuals differed ratings Krisalis have man- 
aged to make Premier League Champions as 
realistic as possible. 

As a rule prevnjus football games have had 
foe option of making your own league nnij cup 
competitions and Premier League Champions is 
not an excepiian to this Tufo, but it does give you 
foe chance to play on entire football season or 
seasons if you're a dedicated enough gomes 
player. 

You stori off with your fresh squad of players 
and lake part in foe League., foe Coco Cda Cup 
and foe FA Cup. As you progress your pfoyers

when shooting down because you missed mosl of

GameR 


rectified this problem because when a nasly 
laede goes in it actually tells you what state your 
player is in, this makes those important manage- 
rial decisions a Id easier. 

Another interesting little feature ii the ability 
to name who takes the defensive and attacking 
free kicks and more importantly who fakes tha 
Rallies. OK, so it's maybe not that important, 
ut it's □ lot more realistic than having the player 
wiso got fooled lake them. 

It's oil these nice touches which turns a very 
good game into a brilliant piece of software and 
the only thing which I noticed that was left out 
was the ahility lo transfer players, but hey you 
can’t hove everything can you. 

Although I detest Manchester [tailed I have to 
say that Krisalis' Memehosler United Premier 
League Champ'ons would make it onto my top 
ten Amiga games ever. I've thrown away my 
Copies of S-ensible Soccer and Goa because 
Krisol s have created an ultimately mare satisfy- 
ing faotbci I gome that will appeal to ihe frue 
foolba !l fon. 

The graph cs ore nicely presented and highly 
realistic. Couple this with its level of playability 
and addiction and you've go4 a hell of a game 
an your hands Tire monagernenl element is 
what reaily makes the game for me because it 
makes tag product for more interactive than fme- 
viaus football software. 

You might have o problem in controlling your 
players at first, but over o sknt period of time 
you will start to masher rt. 

Krisalis have produced some damn fine footy 
gomes n the past, b.i this surpasses them oil. I 


don't know how ihe games-buytag public will 
take lo rt, bul I've not been able to pul it down 
Ond I'm off to play it again as soon as I've scrib- 
bled these last few wards down 

I could enlhuse for most of the magazine 
about haw good if is, but space forbids me 
doing that. I put my hand on my heart I advise 
you ta buy if. I promise you will not be 
disappointed.

Simon the Sorcerer

magical-type sayings as we find out 
whether Simon the Sorcerer weaves a 


spell or gets stuck in 

I f s net often iM e pere of software wings 
its way by carrier pigeon lo the Game/ 
solitary confinement cell. In fact come lo 
think of it it's quite o rarity far anything at 
oil to tome into the office by (hot means. 

That aside, it's not often that something 
arrives and you find some strange mystical con- 
nection, Somehow, you fee! intrinsically drawn 
towards it. In the case at Adventure Soft's new 
. title Simon the Sorcerer there were two uncanny 
connections that sent an icy chill dawn my spine. 

For one, the main character and I both share 
the some namesake, and secondly, well l‘m not o 
sorcerer, but when I was in Greece an holiday 
this girl sod I was magic.,. 

No, seriously, not only do we share the some 
namesake, but we also have the misfortune ol 


his magic circle 

coming horn the some region of the world, 

So knowing that Adventure Soft draw their 
experience and rich sense of humour from that 
halcyon hen Hand of Birmingham, 1 decided to 
jump in and give ihem a fair whip of ihe pr over-

Ifi not that this reviewer is particularly senti- 
mental about the arm he grow up in. bul he 
knows the prejudice that mid landers hove to 
endure horn the res! of the mocking public. 

Due to the nature af the accent everyone 
thinks that Brummies have the IQ of o toothbrush, 
and it doesn't matter if you're the Dean of Aston 
jiai Saunders you understand! University, people

Anyway, it's very pfwsinp to see that the

R ighl, hands up who knows someone 
who owns a Super Nintendo or a Sago 
Mego Dr we and is always bragging 
aboul how "good'' the games ora. I 
guess ir's just about every Amiga owner oul there. 

fc bet you've always wantec to give them a good 
smock in the tace and show them thm your Amiga 
can keep up with the so cdiled super "consoles'' 
Well, now you can! 

I don't mein you am actually hit them because 
you'o go ta court and get done on a ABH charge 
and you'd probably sue me tar telling you to do il 
and f'd Ul out with you and counter sue and - well 
ii'd all gel out of hand. 

No, instead of using your fist, use Brian the Lion 
os your haymaker. Published by Psygnoiis and 
developed by Reflections (pcrsvious credits include 
all three Shadow of the Beosl gamesl, Brims the 



Now Amiga owners you can have super duper revolving and 
topsy turvy platforms just like your SHI ES- owning chums 




III 




Lion is o pkdfarmer then shouts on 'rjvyfhing you 
dan do T warning to all th-use pesky Sega and 
Nintendo ownen 

Brian is a new kind of hero who wears u wild 
pair of beach shorts and has an awesome quiff rfoat 
even Elvis would be proud of, il he hadn't of died 
on the toile* that is. Brian may look o^te, but under- 
neath that character lies o pair of sharp daws ond 
a fearsome roar. 

SubtiHed Rumble in the Jungle, and □ year-and- 
a-hall in the making. Reflect ans's. platformer is a 
tale of friendship. One day while Brian was chat' 
ting with his best buddy Chris the Crystd., they were 
suddenly interrupted by a big, ugly monster called 
Geezo. 

PRISMATIC 

Geeia, who likes listening to dodgy guitar- 
based nock bonds, has kidnapped Chris and is 
ing to use his prismatic powers to hypnotise all 
te jungle creatores and crown himself king of the 
beasts. 

So Brian is senl forth on o quest. CV ''mane" 
man musl take or. wave after wave of Geezo's tal- 
lows and crass the island in order to save his pd 
and nsetaim his t : tie of King of the Beasts 

On the surface Brier the Ucfi boks lor all the 
wodd like a bog-standard ploltonner, but I person- 
ally don' t think it is thanks to the gab- mockingly 
good graphics. 

It features tall multMayened parallel scrolling. 
152 colours cm screen at once ond 5D original 
tunes., and is the first game la introduce 
the fancus Super Nintendo Mode 7- 
style effects onto lf» Amiga. These 
□fleets, are used to zoom, iaae r ond 
ralute the graphics and can even map on 
Ttncge « torture onto a cylinder

Roaring good platform fun from 
Psygnosis. I'd be lyin' if I said it was 
rubbish! Geddit! Lion? Lyin'? You see 
they sound the same, but they're 
spelled different, oh just forget it 






all platfoim action though because halfway 
through, the game mutates into a left !o rignf 
scrolling shoot 'ern-up that is very reminiscent of an 
old Gremlin game called PegasuS. 

This break in ita constant pslatform tan is most 
welcome ond stops the gamesplayer bom getting 
bored. 

Reflections'! platformer contains some real- 
ly nice touches, especially Brian's roar. Ttas 
con he used to kill smaller creatures and 


machine con achieve. The graphics and sound art 
jaw-droppingly good, the gdd clian levei is ju=s1 
about right Pfoycdsility-wise you can't go wrong 
and Brian the lion has so many nice touches that 
Miikki't possibly list them all one |

Stifle your cynisism for yet 
another cutesy platform effort 


The alien world - looks rather nice to me. Here you can «vtsH yo«r past locations 


T l hes-S doyS platformers are churned out 
(osier lhan a whipped on speed and 
they hove to be pretty darn 
spcclacular to attract more =< 

Hhon O glance from your average 

gamesployer. 

An unusual angle or puzrle 
elemeni is not enough any more to 

5 in interest and I 'm afraid Puggsy 
Is into ihai same desperate block 
hole d hopelessness. In fact it maybe 
worse than lhal... much worse. 

Puggsy is your usual 'aoh, isn't he cute" -type 
of ch trader who adds to the sickiiness factor. He 
is an alien (yes. very original | bur looks uncannily 
like a pickled oman with a condom on his head. 



He h« lost his way and has shaped at another 
world to ask directions bul unferlunalely same 
^ racoons have decided b sieal his space- 
ship. Oh what a story Ime, lira powers 
d genius, Key? 


I Puggsy's only hope is to bailie 
through the 1 7 different locations,. 5 
end of level guardians and b finally 
reach the anciisnl city of Radantis to 

face the ultimate grwrdian and ev&v 

tually resa# his spaceship.. 

Controlling Puggsy 4 by joystick and 
is clumsier them a drunk elejdiant an fuller skates, 
The ccfltrds feel chunky and unresponsive and 
become very tedious. 

Ggmeploy involves your character picking Up 


ihe many objects that con be found and using 
them in some manner la solve he puzzles Within 
ihe level there are switches, locks and teteporls 
which can be activated (or deactivated! by throw- 
ing various objects at them Throw keys al (ocks 
to open things, for instance. 

Each object has its own weigh 
modelled on real world grotty sa far 
example, h siding a heavy object 
would 5 top Puggsy being blown 
around by a fan enabling him to 
walk easier. Objects can be stocked 
up to get to higher levels. 

JUMPING 

Puggsy can also hook objects onto 
plalfarms that can't be reached by jumping. 
As the objects act under gravity, same can 
float or bounce. Puggsy can moke use d uc loons 
which he floats on Bonus points are 
awarded for any objects carried through to the 
next level. 

His speed and jump ability can be increased 
by picking up training shoes and by using sun 
shades he is temporarily protected, 

On ihe plus side, lyes there is onel the 
end-of-level guardians are huge and relatively 
appealing. The map screen is a nice touch. 
Puggsy con travel back and fro to ail 



the previous levels he's been to. 

Graphics ore your usual nice, colourful 
thing, well drawn but they would hardly moke 
gasp in amazement. The soundtracks are 
enough and cheerful which only mckn| 
more irritating. 

The gome would be ideody 
to a younger games player k* 1 
hardly rings true when you 
sider that moji of the kidi 
are demanding the latest 
most bloodiest beffl-'em-ups! 

A lot of effort has obwausly 
into ittis game especially in de 
the pzzles. bwt rt really is neHsina 
ArvotbiHf platter Tier, which piods along a" o 
pace, hardly up to Psygnosij r i usual

Ski, skate, shoot and jump your socks

bobsleigh is presented in two sections. 

The first is viewed from (He side and involves 
you- getting your team into the iloigh The second is

of view. The 3D section is quite good, but fve seen 
belter. 

Although Winter Olympics is 0 multi-player you 
hove to take it in turns to compete in the event 
except br the speed skating when you can com- 
pete against «nfo other. 

It is an elimination event, so if you get left at foe 
bock of she pack you're oul. Like many ol tfre 
sports in US Gold's sports simulation speed skating 
is a joystick wogdef 

Aporl from foe subtle innuendo, I wish that 
there could be some way of getting rid o! foe wog- 
vf? because they da lend to weaken your joystick 
and., ahem, leave you wilh a sore wrist. 

But waggling does seem to he the best control 
method for this type of game, so until someone 
invents something better well just hove to put up 
with.

U S Gold have always been

The Olympics this yeor are

games will be both an inlemoliongl

Er. yes.

Seek & Destroy JM 




The rni 55 ion screen informs you of who you will have to blow into ffttfe Iwrlmufd pieces 


U nder normal circumstances o CD lirle 
should command more space than we' ve 
■granted it here, However, as you pro- 
ceed further into (He review \f\\ become 
: . re apparent to you why we have resisted the 
'■srnpfatign,.. 

What you howe in Serik and Destroy is basically 
: Desert Strike clone without the desert Or the 
tfr ke! Seek and Destroy is a fairy straightforward 
helicopter Gulf-'em-up 

Your overall mission Is to lake control of like 
^rwche gun ship, fly into enemy territory end teach 
•’em o jolty good lessen. 

To Kelp you achieve ihe unenviable task of 
Curling every Arab nation ihmugh virtual genocide, 
you have the normal, rather obvious armoury of 
weapons. 

On bac'd Ore □ full range of machine guns and 
sir to ground missiles, all of which can be pirl to 


greal effect. By far ihe best weapon wilhin your 
lame arsengl is ^>e Air Strike. This allows you to 
calf up an immediele heavy missile strike. All you 
have to do is fly over the area you want Rattening,, 
press the button and gel your chopper out of there. 
Five seconds ater the whole area is toto-iy torched 
in a most effective way, 

lr foci, by far the most impressive aspect of 
Seek and Destroy aro the sound eNects. Improved 
by ihe virtue of CD technology, ihe sound is e*cd- 
leni. from the whipaing rotors of toe Apache, 
through ta ihe grind of the heavy machine gun 
chewing through buildings, 

Like Desert Strike, Seek and Destroy is viewed 
from an overhead perspective Graphically, the 
eorthbound views are pretty average- and seem as 
though they were created far m A5Q0, although 
’he way the Apache's shadow cash ih pkelled 
image m to the landscape below is particularly 




Li 

-■ 




well handled. 

ki the final analysis Seek and Destray isn't real- 
ly that bad in its essence it moves quite slickly ond 
there's plenty of adion within the strudure of the 
missions. 

However, there u-en'l that many missions in 
total, and more d sapoc- nting is the kick of variety 
involved. Far exomp e m the najenty at coses 
yau'N either be destroying oilier helicopters, or 
ground- based tanks and bui Idir-gs. 

After the first Couple -of missions, Seek and 
Destroy soon becomes frustrating and a lids dul 
Part cl the reason is because of 'he grass lock of 
verify in die odion erd the enemy's reliance on 
dawning your Apache by a war of attrition 

It's nod ns if they vary loo greally; you just seem 
to get more enemies on your screen al orre time, 
ond rl becomes neigh-on impossible 1c co ordinate 
your 'weaponry among lho“ sevd of confusion. 

To be honest I'm a in c di sap pain ted with 
Vision software After the auite excellent 
Cybermetix W their cracking little platformer 
V/codie's World, Seek and Destroy is well below 
par, 

Given the type of product Seek and Destroy is, 
it ml ght well have proved popular on ihe A50Q 
and A6QQ on floppy ctrive, end did indeed moke a 
brief appearance. But, os a practically flJ-priced 
title for Commodore's 32-bit ! ..Q-driven prodigy, 
it's extremely herd la justify. 


SIMON CLAYS 


Ooh, no. One of those overmanned 
Arab types has dipped my tail 
rotor with a lucky strike from hn 
camel-mounted Biro and blotting 
paper tumhinalion 




Chargrilled indigenous desert 
Bedouin - you gut it 


It's realty hard to 
justify a title of this 
nature w what is 
Commodore s f ! ng- 
thp console. If II was my money that 
had teen flushed mro ihe maeislrom 
of Ihe It-bend on a CD32 title Of this 
quality. I'd probably wont to ftissh 
rmyseii down o'lerwoids

wherever another futuristic world or planet is portrayed rn a computer game, it's always 
as a gloomy or dismal place to be. 

I mean, nobody has ever shown images of future worlds being nice cheery places, 
where houses art made of no-calorie chocolate, or Saturday night television actually 
shows something intelligent. 

Sul hey, I guess that wouldn't make For a very exciting plot for the various films, 
books and computer gomes then take up this futuristic theme, and Another World is just 
one of the some. 

Gloom, doom, mystery and all things nasty combine to became this highly atmospher- 
ic adventure game and hey, does it work well, I was engrossed after merely seeing the 
story screen, 

A young scientist, while experimenting with sub-atomic policies, has his laboratory 
struck by lightning, teleporting him into another dimension. 

It's o world completely different to earth, and you, taking on the role a# scientist Lester 
Chaykin, must draw upon all your resources and intelligence to survive. 

You must explore your new surroundings while avoiding, For 
instance, dangerous siug-type creatures with their instantaneous 
death bites, or deadly panthers. Subhuman creatures found in the 
World will either help or hinder you,,. 

Another World combines excellent graphics, panoramic back- 
drops nnd superb sound effects to moke a stunning atmospheric 
game. You'd be one pint short of a booie up to miss out on this 
one, especially if you didn't catch it first lime around.

And here we have Mir famous 
tourist attraction, a local 
beauty spot it remains as 
serene and tranquil as always. 

Mute the panoramic view and , 
err, deadly Panther 


Police Quest 

Kixx XL • £16.99 

Men in uniforms sounds like o good idea for a game to me, and Police Quest certainly 
isn't a disappointment. Slnrsky and Hwtoh it a in') (which is probaMy good because 
Storsky's dodgy haircut left a lot to be desired) hut it is a pretty entertaining police 
adventure gome. 

As a typical Sierra back-cataloguer it isn't exactly haf in the graphics and sound 
departments, but the idea is rather novel which mokes for some unusual gameploy. 

You Start the gome OS a lowly police officer (celled Sonny bond, hmml! and must 
work your way up to the diuy heights of going undercover to tty and bust the notorious 
Death Angel and his gang, wanted far dastardly crimes oF murder, drug IraFFicking and 
robbery. 

Routine duties such as handing out tickets nnd attending briefings must be undertoken 
before you' ll get to the top. Personal hygiene raid keeping a smart uniform must become 
part of a police officer's daily routine. All procedures must be followed to the letter or 
else it's bock to code) school for you! 

Points ore awarded for each pmde or due you con pick up cm. Reading newspapers, 
clipboards and the like can provide vital clues so remember that, however insignificant 
something may seem, it may prove credd. 

Attention to detail within the game provides o realistic simulation of American police 
life, OS for OS I can tell anyway, but having never been an American police officer I 


Eye of Ike Beholder 

Kixx XL • £ 1 6.99 

Scared though I am of rule books thicker than War and Peace and whether 1 actually 
know the difference between Lawful Neutral or a Chaotic Good, I delved into the mystery 
world of Kixx XL's latest RPG-er, Eyo of the Beholder. 

The action tokos place in the sewers beneath the City of Wotedeep rn Till's Forgotten 
Realms game world. It is rumoured that evil lurks in these sewers, and it must be found 
and dfesttoyed- 

Te begin you need to develop your party, choosing lour characters oil with various 
attributes, strengths and weaknesses which can be altered. Race, class, alignment and 
ability must be decided upon far oil characters; these attributes will hove a marked 
impression on the outcome of the game. 

The clearly set-out Adventure screen allows you to keep track of your team, their cur- 
rent states and any objects they may possess, The 3D View Window enables you to see 
the action. Movement is through the arrow icons and a compass shows your party's 
direction, and will help you to mop the lower levels. 

There are a vast number of spells whkh will help you on your guest such a$ Cloud kill 
0 close range spell which billows a doud of dead y vapour end can 
like leeches. 

There seems to be a vast amount here to keep your average RPG- 
er happy. The goad graphics and easy controllability make this n 
good example of its genre .

fairly simple. 

The Restore Gome function is a great help as it would become 
extremely frustrating to have to start from scratch each time just 
because you'd made o small mistake. 

Although rather dated. Police Quest is a really playable game 
and mokes a nice change to your usual adventure.

anjunciion of She two moans, the sun and 


the pip nei Ishar. This is where you're set to come 
into (he action r Tflking the role of a parly of 
adventurers, you must destroy the dragon before 
Shandar can perform the ritual which will 
transform him into the mast powerful 
entity an the face of the earth. According lo Daie 
Marketing who handle die UK promotional 
activities of Silmarils-, the key to success in 
Ishar 3 is lime. Though you will not directly race 
against the clock, you'll have lo travel through 
various lime portals which will lead you to 
varying historical zones in the development of 
Ishar. 

SIGNIFICANT 

In order to achieve any significant progress 
you'll have lo moke sure your team appear al all 
the salient points in lime, and affect history in the 
corned manner. 

The main overriding feeling you're left with 
after Ishars I and 2 is the attention to detail, 
accuracy and distinctive look that Silmarils games 
have. 

Fans of, or indeed newcomers to, the Ishar 
tides will be pleased to hear that Silmarils are 
keen to maintain that image, and are packing the 
game full of enhancements lo add even more 
realism. 

While it's too earfy to determine exactly what 
the final product will contain, this progressive 
french software company are boosting some fair- 


ly impressive additions. 

One of the areas that they're paying extra 
attention to is character generation and selection. 
In Ishar 3 you’ll be able to select from over a 100 
different characters and assign your party with a 
whole host of personality trolls. 

Also, like in many gomes of this genre, yew'll 
be able to re-bad teams you've used in Ishars 1 
and 2, giving your adventures on extra dimen- 
sion of realism and a history that you yourself 
ore Familiar with. 

As well as Ihe rich array of weapons your 
dwarves and barbarians can 

yield, there'll be a wide vocabulary of spells to 

cast, conjure and recite at your enemies. 

While your not slaying and hocking yw way 
around some forest oc wilderness, there’s a 
whole host of indoor locutions to hong your 
sword up in. These will vary from dunk caverns 
through to brigh tly lit inns and lavemi- 

There ore also a large number of other 
buildings which you'll be able to explore 
and mop during play, So, rather 

than traipsing around swamps oil day 
and night, you might find your 


'Stii! 


party researching same arcane myth in a library. 

Something new lo this new addition to the 
Ishar trilogy will be animated film sequences of 
events, which will add a whole extra dimension 
of reality and atmosphere to the title. 

With oil these and more Features 
included in Ishar 3. the game looks as ihouc^i it 
could well become a benchmark adventure title, 
and set a new standard in first-person role-play 
gaming on the Amiga, 

Silmarils have always hod a reputation for 
producing intelligent and visually 
stunning games. While we r ve yel to see 
the finished product, both the screenshots and 
early demos look set lo give role 
players a very large, very involving 
dip into the world of Tolkien, But 
remember, too mony jaunts into this 
fanlasy world could become Hobbit- 
forming...

I n Llif last few issues we have had an introductory 
look at programming Intuition graphs with ARexx. 
enabling ns to leave the hounds of the GJ and to 
write programs with a true Amiga look and feel, We will 
now look at a subject ilut is supposed to lx- exceptionally 
daunting, namely, interfacing with ARexx. 

Before some readers run off, let me say that we will not 
lx presenting reams of cryptic axle here, hut rather ‘-tudy- 
ing live basic principles involved i hopefully the code will 
lx clear too!). 


Even users who never intend to w rite an interface in 
their lives will be able to gain an insight into ARexx’s inner 
workings which will allow them to get the most out of 
their own favourite ARexx applications. 

in fact, some of our first examples w ill lx presented, not 
in C or Assembler, not even in Basic, but in ARexx itself 1 
This, I hope will make everything as dear as possible. Like 
so many other things in computer programming, our sub- 
ject is not too bad once you break it up into manageable 


bits. 

By the time we reach the end of this study you will be 
able to add an ARexx interface to your own programs, 
either by designing it from scratch, or by grafting it on 
using one of the several available utilities, 

To understand the ARexx interface we must first kxik at 
its basic building I ’■links. In a hare-bones ARexx system, 
there are three of them: 

First is the Interpreter (libsLrexxsyslib.lihmiyi. you 
probably already know, the interpreter is implemented as a 
shared .Amiga library . 

There are two advantages, to this approach: it makes for 
easy multitasking, since several ARexx programs running 
simultaneously can all share the same interpreter (try doing 
ihar in Basic.. ! and certain of the mechanisms used by the 
interpreter - especially those used for interprocess commu- 
nication - are available to the programmer as functions, so 
they don't have to lx- reinvented every time an interface is 
tic-signed.. 

However, since the interpreter is a library, it cannot he 
used on its own, but needs a process to call it up. 'I hi" 
brings us to the second element, the Resident Process 
i.S vs System/ RexxMasi ) 

The resident process is the controller at the core of the 
system. It ss launched with the RexxMast command (which 
regular ARexx users will already have somewhere in their 
startup). 

The resident process does two jobs: it opens a public 
port named REXX by which it may be accessed; and it 
keeps track of all global information about the ARexx sys- 



tem - The number of ARexx programs running, the libraries 
that are available, and other information about ARexx 
resources. Once launched, the resident process remains 
available until it is specifically shut down. 

All communication between ARexx units, regardless ci 
its nature, is performed by ARexx messages sent to ARexx 
ports, and by the replies posted back at these ports, ante 
the messages have lieen processed 
The details contained in the messages may determine 
the specific behaviour of the system, hut there is absolutely 
no ARexx activity if there isn't a port and a message 
involved. 

So, for instance, whenever you run an ARexx program, 
what you are actually doing is sending a message with the 
details of the program to the RF.XX port of the resident 
process. The process then loads up the program, oversee* 
its interpretation, and returns the relevant code or result 
back to you. 

The command launcher (SysiRexxcrx) is the most com- 
mon way to launch an individual ARexx program. The rx 
command sends the information about the program you 
want to run to the REXX port, as described above. 

It will also determine details like whether your program 
K a file or a quoted string typed at the CLL and receive any 

Out o 

messages, returned from R1:XX port, printing their details at 
the console. 

Et is useful io remember that rx is not the only way of j 
launching an ARexx program. Most applications programs 
with advanced ARexx interfaces allow you to launch ARexx 
scripts without leaving the application environment 

There are also third-party Shells that can bunch ARexx 
programs without rx, and even some tx clones. Gt course 
you cun also launch a program from within another ARexx 
program simply by giving acs name on a line. 

ARexx treats all unrecognised lines as external com- 
mands and sends them off to the current port, which i- 
REXX by default. By now you should be able id see dearly 
that all the above cases are equiva-

lent - all they do is send die details

run to the resident process! 

\\'e have said that every applica- 
tion program with an ARexx inter- 
face. must have (at least) one port to 
receive and reply to ARexx messages 
The name of the port is selected 
by the application. Each application 
obviously also has its own set of 
meaningful instructions to which rt 
can respond. Such an application, 
with a port and a set of instructions 
is officially called an ARexx host, 
Suppose we want a host applica- 
tion to do something automatically 
such as getting a drawing program id 
draw a line, a text editor to perform 
a search or formatting operation, a 
communications program to scan t

Figure I: Sending messages 





AREXX 


..Lila from rh n modem, a test utility to beep, or \s liatevef... 

In order 10 make the host perform the desired action, we have to 
make sure (hat a relevant ARexx message gets to the host s pon 
i we will see how to do this later). 

This message wilt contain the instruction we wish to send, any 
extra arguments, as well as certain other details, which we will look 
ji soon. Once die host receives die message, it is responsible for 
extracting the relevant information, processing it- and sending back 
the return code and any reset I Ls. 

By now it should lie clear that the resident process itself is a 
k isr. \\ l.’ could say that there are two broad cases of ARexx mes- 
sages travelling around die Amiga environment 

Firstly, there ate those messages which are going to the RRXX 
port; these- in turn may either lx. 1 launching programs, or otherwise 
acting on the resident process Secondly . we have those messages 
directed to [III- pons of specific hosts requesting an action. 

At tltis point, we should make it dear that ARexx supports two 
different types of host, known ,i> command hosts and function 
hosts. 

Although they Ixtth obey all the rules chat we have outlined 
above, they differ in die way ihey are called from an ARexx pro- 
gram; they also differ in the way they receive any arguments and 
return any results. 

When adding an ARexx interface, we musi first decide which 


Even though the two types may- 
hosts appear (juice different from 
within ARexx, they are very similar 
in their inner struciure. All that is 
involved is a port and a mechanism 
to get and process the message In 
filer, there is no reason why a host 
could not lx both a command host 
and a function host. 

The differences lie in the con- 
tents of the ARexx messages, richer 
than in the ports The ARexx mes- 
sage is a lZS-l>yie structure that has 
several data fields, 

These tell us what type of mes- 
sage it is. what instruction it repre 
suits, what arguments it may have, 
whether it wants a reply, and much 
more. Il is (indirectly) possible to 
get all tire information about tire 
current state of the ARexx system 
from any single message. 

When, designing an interface for 
an ARexx host, the important thing 



your interface 


one to use. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. 

Commands are .sent to a command host's port by specifying ihe 
port's name within the ARexx program (using the ADDRESS 
Instruction). 

It is the ARexx programmer's responsibility to make sure it is set 
correctly, although some applications may sei it automatically. 
Commands sent to a command host are ail in the form of a single 
string, and :uiy arguments are -e pa rated by blank spaces. For 
instance: 

ORlsS 1 For ttliii 1 ■CoHisjrdltar.e 1 I -gunentl JOguntnll Arguient! 

There is no limit to the number Of arguments, and the whole 
command string may be up lo ink long.. Results front Command 
hosts have to be requeued specifically by setting OPTIONS 
RESULTS instruction and checking the special variable called 
RESULT, Command h( ists are the more common, and in some ways 
simpler to implement, 

Functions hosts' pons do mu Have to lie Specified, since they 
add themselves to the ARexx system as soon as they are launched 
(by sending a special message lo ihe REXX port of the resident 
process). 

From then on all the functions defined in the host, are available 
as if they were part of ARexx. When searching for a function, the 
system follows the standard order of functions defined in the pro- 
gram itself; huilt-in ARexx functions; libraries and function hosts;, 
and external programs, 

One of the problems with this system is that all function names 
are treated as global by the resident process, so you have to make 
sure that your function host is not subject to name dashes. Host 
[unctions are called just like regular functions, For instance; 

Funr*«» = HsU Fum Drgjinsntlr HrjmEntS* AfgunentJ) 

There is a limit of 1> arguments, aJiliough each one may lie U]i 
to 6-tk long. You are more likely to use function bosh when you 
want results returned more efficiently, 


is how you recognise and treat incoming messages. Some of this 
work is straightforward, and some less so. but there is nothing 
realty difficult. 

Figure 11 shows wliat the message structure looks like in C; note 
that die name of each field begins with "rnt_": 

Don't panic if you don't understand the C notation. Next time 
we wiJJ explain these fields more folly, and also write a small pro- 
gram to demonstrate their use - without using any C! 

We will li I so see how die system allows you to mix pure ARexx 
code with ‘host code by passing messages back and forth, We 
have already given some hints on this today. 

We will also lx: including a small utility that monitors messages 
sent to the KLXX port - a great help for visualising what es going 
on, See you then.

quotes .you receive, the stronger the urge to slam down the 
phone and call it a day 


“It'll cost AdOOh "A 230', “A2SU an hour with the Avid system, 
sir." Feeling numb, you replace the phone and start to reconsider 
your future career, 

Post production is the nest stage lo filmaiic perfection where 
the v ideo can lie made or broken by the pressing of a few editing 
buttons. As you prohabk discovered tor yoursdl I x 1 1 ore the shoot 
started, professional editing suites cost a rather healthy amount of 
money to hire, 


A far wiser idea is to invest in your owrt editing system to he 
LLsed in conjunction with your Amiga - a very versatile machine 
ideal for video use because of cheap genlocks and all the acces- 
sories available. Check out the two editing suites reviewed else- 
where in this guide for further derails. 

Once over this hurdle, die job of finishing die film can begin. 
First of all it's advisable to sit down with all the rushes and log- 
ging sheets and go through each tape, Chcxise ihe takes you want 
Lo use for each shut and mark them down on ihe logging sheets. 

This saves you time while editing and if you ever do decide to 
go fur die full professional suite, it'll save money as well. 

The editing process Is split into three significant stages - the 
rough cut, tile second cut and the final cut. Imagine an out-of- 
focus shot and through tin- editing the image slowly comes into 
shape to create the final picture. 

The rough cut is simply an opportunity to grab the shots that 
you want to use: and slap diem down on tape in the right order. 
No attention needs to he; given to the exact timing of the cuts at 
this stage. 

The main concern is to simply see it in the order you initially 
think is right which may highlight any changes that need to be 
made Remember, as with the shoot, you don't have to stick to 
the storyboard rigidly - if certain shots look better in another 
place, try it now Lind experiment a little 

for die .second cut, start to lighten up the shuts and clip away 
at the frames. You’ll be surprised even after this stage that you'll 
spot places where the video can lie tightened further. 

The final cut is where everything comes together, all the mis- 
takes made right and corners cut as finely as possible, Then 
music is laid and the title?, put in their beginning and end posi- 
tions. One of the main principles of editing is to always cut on 
the action whether it js physically or dialogue based to carry the

aiul pace that involves the audience more. 

Secondly, it's necessary for one piece of action- shot to art 
together accurately with the next The Tendency among begin- 
ners is to try and exactly match the point which is cut horn with 
the proceeding shot. 

Fur example, imagine a fist pulling back to hii someone and 
just as it launches forward we cut to it from a different position 
as it makes impact on the victims nose. For the best method in 
most cases for getting ihe perfect edit, cut as the Mm lias started

Then, instead of trying to find the exact point that matches in 
both shots, advance the second image by a few frames past the 
point. When cut together, you'll see dint this slightest of "jump"

If" the question of choosing between good acting but dodgy 
camera work and vice versa should arise, go tor the acting - a 
solid performance can carry a film more than fancy shots.

When the editing has finally 1 been finished, it s 
important to make the packaging and credits as 
polished as (he contents of the laps. 

Investing in a colour printer and a DTP pack- 
age such as PageStream 2.2 (v3 to be released

either using a basic paint program to creels flick

As you ve probably gathered by now, the busi- 
ness of video creation Is an expensive one even

- to find oul if you actually enjoy the experience 
before ploughing money into Videopitot. 

Videopilot 

Supplier: To be a no u need soon 
Price: approx £1,000 

For the budding professional videomaker. 

Videopilot is an excel ent system (or achieving 
solid results. While the cost may bring tears to 
your eyes, the machine is worthy of the price 
tag, 

Coming in a smartly designed casing with full 
tape manipulation facilities, ii also boasts a 
highly useful shuttle facility which enables (he 
user to flick through the frames on at a time for 
optimum accuracy. 

Up to four VCRs can be attached lo the unit 
and once hooked up, can be operated solely 
via the Amiga and Video o lot The software that 
comes with the package is simple to use and of a high sian- 
dard and includes a basic tiding system as the icing on the 
cake. 

Vtoeopilot is also com pal ib e with the different timecode 
systems found on VCRs. When taping, many video 
recorders lay down a running time on the tape as they 
record., These come m vanous formats - VITC (Panasonic), 
RCTG (Sony) and L.TC iused by many home videos and 
camcorders). 

While having many features to tempi the potential buyer, 
there are downsides. The Video pilot cannot perform cross 
fading between iwo images and can't even achieve a fade 
to black. To lay your hands on these extra capabililies will 
require another handout for toe appropriale hardware. 

The other problem is that some recorders donT lay time 
codes and therefore editing with tapes used by them are 


useless because the editing machine has nothing to read 
and align wilh. 

There are two solutions to this problem - either copy the 
tape on another machine that does lay down a time code 
which leads to a loss in generation (Ihe quality of the picture 
suffers) or have your video recorders modified so that it 
becomes LTC-compatible. This will cost you £100 for the 
conversion and make any warranty that you have 
redundant. 

If this all sounds like technical [argon then make sure that 
you contact the dealers to get solid advice about your partic- 
ular requirements. 

Overall, the financial sacrifice is worth Ihe end results - 
with editing accuracy being between one and three frames, 
this -;s the best system that money can buy within the price 
range.

Amiga Computing April 1994 








he Amiga collects Midi data via the .serial pori hut to gut 
die right electronic and cabling connections you have 
to use something culled a Midi interface, the cheapest 
of which as you'll probably know cast around £20 and are avail 
able from many Amiga dealers, 

With simple systems you take one Midi lead from the Midi Out 
terminal of the synthesizer tor whatever it is that you 
are using) and connect it to the Midi Jn terminal on the 
interface. 

Assuming you also want to play hack your recording, you then 
need to take a second lead from the Midi Out terminal of the 
interface and connect u to the Midi In Terminal on the synthesizer. 

Recording is simple. You just load vour sequencer program, set 
it into record mode (every sequencer has a different way of doing 
this) and play. Whenever you touch tile keyboard, or alter a con- 
trol, your synthesizer will transmit digital messages (Midi mes- 
sages) - and it is these messages which the sequencer will store. 

Songs can lx j created piece by pLece using multiple .sequencer 
tracks and by selecting the sequencer's play option (again all 
sequencers have different ways of doing this) copies of all of the 
recorded messages can lie sent hack to the synthesizer. The result? 
The synthesizer will use that Midi data to recreate everything 
you've played, 

ll is also possible to Iniild Midi systems that contain many more 
instruments (extra synthesizers, druin machines and .so on) and up 
to 16 different unit' can lx* linked together on a conventional 
system. 


SELECTIVE 



mmm 


delays are eliminated su there's less chance 
of any com mimical ions problems arising, 
Philip Rees specialist in these types of 
unit 1 - and now provide an extensive range 
of boxes. The smallest device offered pro- 
vides three Midi Out terminals, it’s called die 
V3 Lind is battery driven Further up the 
scale comes the mains powered V|0 which 
has ns own 1 milt-in transformer power sup- 
ply and drives ten Midi Out terminals 
There’s jvrf a lot you cars say about Midi 
Thm boxes themselves, other than the fact 
that they work Basically you plug them in 
and forget about them, it's as simple as that. 

'Jbe same company also produce many 
more specialised units for merging and rout- 

The 





tsa 


The 3W merge unit and the MLD 
lino drivers are fust two of the 
more advanced Hems available 
from the Philip Pees range 


litis is because Midi recognises the existence of 16 separate 
channels and certain messages, called channel messages, contain a 
channel number embedded within diem. Each piece of equipment 
can therefore be selective shout the messages they' respond to, 

It T a bit like someone writing a letter to you, sticking it in an 
addressed envelope inri posting it I he letter, along with a great 
many others.. ger> moved around ihe postal system but the con- 
tents are essentially ignort i until the letter arrives at your door. 

You know the letter i> lot you because it has gin your name 
and address on it - a Midi unit will know when a suitable channel 
message arrives because n will have a channel number identical to 
the channel number the unit has been set; up to respond to, 

This select win mean? that, in theory at least, a Ls possible to 
have say your Amiga sequencer, a dozen synthesizers, plus a few 
drurji machines arid sound effect units, all linked together i v id, 
their Midi in and Midi Thru ports! using what is effectively a giant 
Midi cable loop I say in theory because there's a snag in dial 
every time a message passes through a piece of Midi equipment a 
slight deterioration in the signal quality (and a small time delay) 
OCCUR- 

Some Midi interface^ provide mu hi pie Midi Out terminals 
specifically to solve this problem but another solution is to use a 
device known as a Midi Thru Hos. These allow you to turn a sin- 
gle Midi Out connection into any number of outputs sc? that each 
instrument can then get its own copy of the Midi messages comi- 
ng from I in- interlace The result? Signal qua lily is 1 setter and lime 


Midi jungle 


The ¥3 Thru box can convert a 
single Midi Out connection into 
three separate Outputs 


Confused about 
channels and Midi 
equipment links? 
Paul Overaa explains 
what's what 


ing Midi signals. Even merging tv:* streams of mconiing Midi 
day into one is not quite as simple as it might seem but Philip 
Rees's latest 3M merging device can actually combine up to 
three input streams. 

.Midi line driver (MLD) units that can support Midi links of up 
to one kilometre (the normal cable length limit is about !5 
metres) are also available, 

Why would you need to use such long cable lengths? Welt, 
unless you use Midi professional b you wouldn't but these gad- 
gets do get used by live bands in recording studio control 
rooms, theatres, and in ocher situations where the sequencer 
equipment lias to be situated a long way from the actual Midi 
gear being controlled, 

You never know - the musicians among you now happily 
building home recording studios might also find that MLD units 
come in bandy!

he email boxes him- iiecn fair buzzing themselves off 
the wu.ll This month, and so \ thought I'd lake another 
opportunity to check out the mail 1 ve lietn getting 


electronic;! II y. 

It' you want to send me some email then feel free, hut do try 
not to clog up the airwaves with ‘hello. ] just thought I say hello 
as I've got nothing letter to do. hlah blah waffle". 

Think about email ns if it were a letter or a phone call, 
Inlroduce yourself briefly., ure you ll reader, what computer you 
use: mainly, and then for goodness sake get to the point. 

[in gening tired of huge messages about all the computers that 
you've ever owned, w hat you mate said about me tile other day 
and who you're going out with Lit the moment. 

This is a waste of bandwidth, run 10 mention my time, if your 
email is bigger than a scree n's-worth of text, then most people's 
eyes start to glaze over unless it s really very interesting. 

Don't also cross-post, huge documents from other sources 
Send them on disk il you must. Right, that's the eomms style 
guide over with, Let's dive into some post. 

Hichaid Borrett <R,BorretE®herts;,ac.iik> says: 


"E have just started to use the computer systems at the 
University of Hertfordshire and currently I am lust playing 
around with tile system, albeit carefully. 1 just happen to write lo 
you because you happen to work for my favourite computer 
magazine. Amiga Computing Lint! you are the only address [

using the system. Next is Christopher 
Brid ge <C K.L5ri d ge tites , su I ft ird . a c . u k > 
who wants to know: 


“At Salford University all the students 
are given the use of Internet and FTP like 
most Janet Sites Mainly I am striving to 
get useful ftp and exciting Internet num- 
bers or addresses. Useful, being for ritt 
Amiga obviously 

What 1 am looking for is a good site to 
get GIFs BMPs PCX, New Utilities., New 
Music Modules anti also one with a sim- 
ple file structure so that I don't have to 
spend half mv rime roaming around. 

■ [ have got several hundred addresses 
from an Ftp site but I don't have the time 
to go through them finding tile best as 1 
go. t A lot of essays to do you know!) 

"A good she which 1 do know is 
<grind.istti. uiowa.edu> Do you know of 
this one? Is it possible for a [ft ! ere u the 
University to call up an Amiga-specific 



Net surfing 


“1 am currently using the FTF system, and I am wondering 
whether t can usl- direct phone numbers to contact various bul- 
let in boards i appreciate that you may he busy. Lind sending 
messages is expensive, bui a reply would lie most helpful." 

Well, replying costs virtually' nothing most of the time, so Ins 
happy to talk to you ahout BBS. You can't dial up any external 
BBS. unless of course v a i ave y< > tr ow n Amiga phi incline and 
modem. 

Unless a BBS is pan of a network. Like Fidonet, you generally 
have no way in from the outside, and even if you did it wouldn't 
lie the same as logging on. 

Some HI SS-, like U.\ a Hi iw you to log on from external systems 
hy TELNET, Hut mod systems which allow this charge you for 



Many images ate avail&bte. an sight from the Net, 
but none are more diverse than thos on the Otis 
system „ 4rtrsfs ca^tribwie to the system from aif 
aver the world, and the r^nge of works goes from 
the sublime to the positively stupid 


bulletin board, ic one mm on lui Amiga'' I think the answer is 
obviously no but you’ve got to try. 

“What is the average weekly cost of your phone bill? All the 
magazines I read only tell you ahoul ihe price of the modem, 
tlte best ones to buy etc, but none answer the most Important 
question that of phone hill costs What if you're on the modem 
and someone is trying to call y< lur house?" 

As far as good sites, there an Istc rally thousands. I use the I S 
sites <wuarchive, wiLsil.edu> and <wcarehive.cdKmcom> a lot. 
and also <ftp.fimet.fi> which Is in Finland. 

Most of these I picked up the addresses for from recommen- 
dations from other Nil users. A little hit of detective work, you 
see, a good skill to develop if you want to be a really useful Net 
user. 

Ail these sites have FXTENSIYT files from Aminet and other 
Amiga related stuff, as well a^ lots , ,| other cool stuff. You might 
also tike to trv Imperial College, on <ftp.duc.ic.ae.uk> as they 
also carry a lot of useful stuff. 

Second question, yes you can dial up the Amiga BBS with 
your E'C. You can even download programs but of course you 
have to transfer them to the Amiga l>etbrc you can run them. 

Weekly costs for my phone bill are greatly reduced since I 
got a li. tOU baud modem, and besides I work from home and 
so my phone fulls are about IKK! a month anyway, whether I 
use ihi- modem or not. 

Off-line readers arc a boon if you can gut one for systems 
that you use, They reduce on-line time to the minimum, If you 
Lire using the modem and someone calls your house it cull 
give an engaged tone the same as if you were talking on die 
phone, * 

Itie phone doesn't distinguish between speech and data, as 
thev Lire both .sounds being sent down the line Unless you've 
got multiple lines you will lie holding up the phone whenever 
you use the modem.

rogramming in Amos isn't so much j hit of coding, more 
a way of life. Once you first start meddling about with 
graphics and sound, and crack your first bit of maths for 
collision detection, you're off. Nothing can stand in your way. 

t recently umk delivery of a mail sack from the AC office. 
Wow. All those hits of paper and disks, nil of them cither saying 
what do 1 do from here with this buggy bit of code that I'm cur- 
rently hanging my head on, or look at what I've done, isn't it 
brilliant? The two groups really wight to get togeiher, I think. 

Someone who Mongs to the latter category' is most definitely 
one Steve Bennett, who sent me a number of excel lent routines 


for you to see, some of which I've included in this issue. 

Steve has grasped a fundamental truth about Amos, It's the 
computer programming language for people with imagination, in 
Lite same way that C is the language for people with calculators 
hard wired to their foreheads, and assembly k the language for 
people who if you look closely you can see little Os and Is in 
the pupils of their eyes.. 

Steve has .some very useful routines that he uses and be'-’ 
given me permission to reprint some of them here, The first is a 
way of doing something in Amos Classic that you formerly could 
only do using Amos Pro. 

As Steve said in his letter: "One of the few tilings that t Like* 
about Pro is the way in wfiu h you on create outline text, which 
I think adds a lot to die look of buttons, etc. 

■] was thinking if it would be easy to create the same effect 
using Classic. As it turned out, it is very easy tu do,..":

Routine 
stuff 


I particularly like die sine wave motion of The bobs as they 
move across the screen Can you think of a way of making the 
bobs move further apart and have their own sine wave motion 
as t hey move along the sine wave path? A sort of wiggle within 
a wiggle! Try it and see. and why not send in your best ideas? 


Phil South exploits 
his connections to 
bring you some of 
the very best Amos 
routines 


Keep in touch 

tt you have an Amos question or even a routine or two 
you've written which might be of interest to other Amos 
coders, then why not send it In to: Phil South, Amos 
Almanac, Amiga Computing Europe House. Adlinglon 
Park, Macclesfield SK10 4NP. 


Too big to print! 

Now as you can see from the above, Steven Is a very good Amos coder, which is why - I'll come dean 
- he's a constant contributor to Totetty Amos, and why he’s produced Understanding Amos 2, his own 
book-on-a-disk. 

This program; shows you how to do certain basic things like using joysticks, bobs, the mouse, and 
it s available from all your usual Amos disk dealers, Get il now and complete your Amos disk tutorial 
collection, It answers all the most frequently asked questions about Amos. 

Steve has also written a utility program to create Zones, as l asked an a previous edition of AC. Even 
though this is too big to print in the magazine, I’ll endeavour to put il on a forthcoming CoverDisk, 
along with the source code of (bat and some of Steve's larger and more impressive code. Well done, 
Steve, and thanks again lor letting us see this great work,

Amiga Computing April 1994 







tic keeps telling me E’m hetuming an ill-icmpcretL old 
so-and-so, Enough of the old. ] growl Hurting abuse at 
the poor defenceless monitor is the cause of her 
accusations, but I do hate goi.nl reason. Oh yes E do! 

Like anyone who uses their hard-earned money to buy 
software, when I discover this software isn'i all ft should he l 
get just j mite upset And ropy outline fonts are no exception. 

] suppose f shouldn't complain, as you do get what you pay 
for. and these fonts don't cost much Lit all, but more than once 
I've bought a shareware font, got it home, installed it, and 
wlien I’ve gone to use it I've found the spacing between the 
characters is all up the creek. Or it’s missing some characters. 
Or its just plain knackered. Not the sort of font you want for 
producing profession: 1 1 looking documents! 

But I have a secret weapon to sort out these wretched 
critters, an outline font editor called TypeSmith. Armed with 
TypeSmith 1 can quickly make corrections to the font anti then 
get back to what J was doing, I have found this to be more 
productive than hurling abuse at my monitor, which hasn't 
done anything wrong. Vet. 

You, too, will no doubt have taken advantage of the wide 
variety of PD and shareware Fonts. Ah, hut there’s nothing like 
rolling your own, Or, when a font doesn't look right, having 
the tools on lund to dean ii up. 

[f you're working with outline fonts, you need TypeSmith. 
After having ii at my beck and call for more than a year now. 
I’ve grown to depend cm ii being there 

CONVERTING 

TypeSmith* uses are manifold, The obvious use is for 
converting between font foimats ft you own PageStream you 
wiU have probably bought a load of PostScript fonts for it. E-kit 
what about all those programs that use Compugraphic fonts! 1 
Buy a load more in that format? Safi, TypeSmith will convert 
them, 

You can also convert Cnmpugraphic to Compugraphic, 
Confused? Well, say you have both Pro Page and VV’otdworth 
and you've bought a volume or two of Digita's Compugraphic 
fonts to use in Wondworth. 

When you install them and see how useful they are in 
Word worth, you decide you want to use them in ProPage, but 
you can't because ProPage uses a slightly different format, 
TypeSmith to the rescue 

TypeSmith will also enable you to create bilniap fonts from 
PostScript or Compugraphit "lies - useful fur awning fonts for 
use in programs that don’t support outlmts, like older versions 
of EkduxePaini lor example. 

Something I use TypeSmith for quite often is to create bitmap 
fonts for PageStream, ir you've used Pagetoream with PostScript 
fonts you will know how long Lt takes to display them, but 
FageSlream can also make use of the ABF. the bitmap 
equivalent of a PostScript font, which it can display much, 
much faster. TypeSmith does ii again, 

But enough of converting fonts. How about we got a little hii 
more ambitious and create some fonts of our own? Come back 



PUBLISHING 


here you chickens! Tin not talking about 
sitting down at a drawing hoard and 
painstakingly designing a whole new 
typeface, I'm talking about special purpose 
fonts. 

For example J recently need some fancy 
dropped capitals for a document I found 
the best way forward was to create the 
capitals in Art Expression, save each leitcr 
as a DH2D drawing and then import these 
into TypeSmith, where f was able to add 
some finishing touches. 

There's more. Reading through 
mag a Lanes you may notice selective use of 
symbols — things like arrowheads, end of 
article markers, question and answer 
symbols, and many others OR, There are a 
plenty of these types of fonts available, hut 
it's so easy, why not draw your own? 

They can then be used in all your 
publishing work and will be like hidden 



Typecast 


Signatures. Why use what everyone else is using? Bo original! 
just he sure to keep the symbols very simple and no-one need 
ever know you can’t draw lor Tolfees. 

Logos are another example of a special purpose font. You 
might for instance have Is different clients who will all have 
different logos Using TypeSmith these tan he placed together 
in a single font So having to go looking For them all over 
the place, all there in the one font, just a single keypress 
away. 

ft you find drawing on the screen a little difficult you can 
lake die easier rouie of drawing something on paper, scanning 
it at ii high resolution to get a large bitmap of it, and then use 
TypeSmith to a moan ice the bitmap, 

Now , 1 don't generally recommend amo-tracing as it can 
make a right cock -up of things at times, and I m not fust 
referring to TypeSmith y auto-trace feature but any auto trace 
program However 1 have been known in mo men is of 
desperation to use auto-trace to get things like signatures from 
paper to font 

No doubt there are a whole host of other uses for TypeSmith, 
Like any drawing or pLiinting program, after you become 
experienced at operating ii. the only limit is your imagination. I 
wonder sometimes how I ever did without TypeSmith. 


Whether it’s dot-to- 
dot or point-to- 
point, Ben Pointer 
puts you in the font 
editing picture 


By using a drawing 
program like Art 
Expression you con 
create a series of 
fancy symbols and 
then import them 
into TypeSmith to 
create a fontfut of 
them 



TypeSmith is 
what you need 
to patch up 
those ropy 
fonts, tike this 
one where the 
spacing bps 
gone to pot
