Dixons dissent 


Dixons, owners- of the electrical chain stores, have 
pulled out of the Amiga market indefinitely. With the 
uncertain future of Corn mode re, it would appear 
that the retail company is wailing lo see the out- 
come of any potential buyouts before deciding to 
restock. 

The situation is up for review as with any range, 
but the situation with Commodore is somewhat 
unusual", said Nicola Marsden, corporate affairs 
officer for the retail company, 

On questioning Dixons about their future plans 
? or the Commodore home computer and! console 
range, Marsden added: “I couldn’t give any commit- 
ment either way at this stage." 

At Commodore's UK headquarters, David 
Plaasance, managing director, commented on 
Dixon's move:: “ll's very typical - Dixons have 
always been line when they're friends with any 
manufacturer. 

"Unfortunately, they have a nervousness about 
what is going lo happen to the Amiga, so they sell 
off what they have iin their stores and hold their 
breath, waiting until something happens. When the 


situation is good again, they return to the scene." 

While, in the immediate future, Dixons' move may 
not bode well lor Commodore's image in the eyes of 
the consumer, David Pleasance is confident about 
the eventual outcome: 'I can't say Tm happy about 
what they are going to do... but I think it's a short- 
term situation". 



David Ploa*»nco: “... ft'* i »hflrt-t*nn srtuMtion."

Following ih« downturn in Commodore's fortune? and its 
subsequent liquidation, it was revealed that Merfhi Ali. pres- 
ident of Commodore International, has left. While other key 
figures have been relieved of their jobs by the administra- 
tors brought in after ihe bankruptcy, many have been re- 
employed as advisors. 

According to David Pleasance of Commodore UK. Medhi 
Ali has left the company “because his services were no 
longer required”. The two individuals selected to replace 
him are Hock Tan and Ed Goss. 

There is also some speculaiion at the moment suggest- 
ing that Commodore's litigation 
against FMG and Steve Franklrn, 
the former director of the UK 
division, are being dropped. This 
however was strongly denied by 
David Pleasance.

After months ol waiting for a buyer to step in and res- 
cue Commodore. Computer Trade WeeKty, an industry 
paper, has revealed thal a surprise buyout 
package created by current and former Commodore 
management may well be the business' most likely 
future. 

The buy-out is said ip have been formulated by lead 
figures in management R&O employees in the US and 
a component manufacturer, if they succeed in buying 
the company, it is unlikely that that Commodore's sub- 
sidies will survive. 

The end result of such a deal is that the once 
American business would operate and be registered in 
Britain from Commodore's UK offices in Maidenhead. 
Hopes ere that the management buy-out would see a 
more stable and small company structure emerging 
from the ashes of bankcrupcty. 


Success for SlI&UESt 

SyQuest Technology, suppliers of removable 
Winchester disk cartridges and associated drives, has 
settled ils litigaiions with Iomega Corporation and 
Nomai SA 

Under a definitive selllement agreement, SyQuest 
will receive royalty payments from the two companies 
in exchange for a licence of certain intellectual properly 
rights relating to SyQuest 44MB and 85 MB 5-25in 
cartridges. 

Also, according to SyQuest, hardware produced by 
Iomega and Nomai is being passed off by certain 
resellers as genuine SyQuest cartridges. 

In some cases, Iomega and Norn a i resellers have 1 
advertised what appear to be genuine SyQuest car- 
tridges, sometimes with the logo or pictures ol SyGuesi 
cartndge packing. 

However, when customers examine the cartridges 
sold, they tern out to be Iomega and Nomai cartridges 
instead, 

To assist customers who have experienced damage 
to their SyQuest 5Q555 and SOS 1 1 0 doves caused by 
the Iomega or Nomai cartridges, Che company will hon- 
our its warranties on the drives if Iomega and Nomai 
pay for the cost of (he repairs. 

As a final sting in the tail. SyQuest will also sell its i 
drives and cartridges lo the two companies, who will he 
able, in turn, to oKer dissatisfied customers suffering 
from damage by Iomega and Nomas cartridges genuine 
SyQuest products as replacements. 

“We're pleased to setlle these litigations on such a 
favourable basis,' said David Everett. SyQuest's exec* 
utive vice president of sales and marketing. " Iomega 
and Nomai have clearly recognised the superiority of 
SyQuest's Winchester lechnology.mn 

“Our consistent legal positron has been thal manu- 
facture and! sale of cartridges by Iomega and Nomai 
illegally infringed SyQuest's intellectual property rights. 
Our position has now been vindicated."

PriuatB prosecution for piratq 

The Crime Unit recently created by ELSPA lo combat software 
Ihefl has bad its firsl success, with a private prosecution brought 
against pirategr Philip Richards. A private investigator working 
for the association discovered that Richards was illegally copy- 
ing and selling games software. 

The prosecution was brought following a visit by (he investi- 
gator to Richards' home in December 1993. There. Richard 
copied and sold the ELSPA man four programs for Ihe Amiga 
1209. Police later raided the house and seized both computer 
equipment and over 2900 computer disks. 

The magistrates at Kettering Magistrates Court in 
Northumberland found Richards guilty o! breaching section 107 
of the Copyright, Designs and Patent Act 1908. He was fined 
£75 for each ol the tour copied programs he attempted to sell, 
and was charged £250 costs. 

Other successes are ihree raids carried oul netting pirated 
CD software worth £10 million. 

John Loader, chief investigator for the Cnme Unit, said: "We 
warned that new low-cost CD-R copying equipment could 
potentially lead to huge losses for UK software producers and 
could lead to Ihe distribution of high quality pornographic mate 
rial on CD. 

"The retrieval of £10m worth of software on just 500 CDs per- 
fectly illustrates the enormous threat posed to the commercial 
software industry." 

Members of tha public with information on illegal software 
should contact ELSPA on 0386 B33B10. All calls wilt be heated 
in confidence,

Uideo toaster and 
Bobotop join forces 

The new television series detailing the contin- 
uing adventures of metal law enforcer 
Robocop has recently finished its production 
cycle of 20 episodes. 

Many of the visual effects within each show 
were created using a video toaster and an 
Amiga 4009. The graphics rendered and 
drawn include Ihe interactive computer read- 
outs on the monitors in Ihe Robocruiser, in 
Ihe Metro Soulh squad room, and in the labo- 
ratories, among others. 

“We also create the imaging in Robocop's 
visor for targeting, computer feeding and 
diagnostics,” explains Lee Wilson, visual 
effects supervisor for the production," as well 
as the backgrounds tor Diana's trip through 
Robocnp's neuro-nets, and the original com- 
puter animation of the helicopter. 

"In a merging of the two systems, the heli- 
copter was built and animated in Ihe compu- 
ter using the Toaster and Lightwave 3D pro- 
gram and flown over Delta City.” 

Stephen Downing, executive producer of 
the series, explains how the Amiga 4009 
ended up as part of Ihe crew on the most 
expansive series produced in Canadian 
television history: 

‘■Shortly into production Lee came to us 
and asked if we would buy this incredible 
place of computer equipment, tt was not in 
our budgel. but we talked il oul and SKYVi- 
SlON decided to support the departmeni. 
hoping the added computer would pay for 
itself. 

■A few days after the toaster arrived 1 came 
into work lo find the entire visual affects crew 
still in the department after pulling an all- 
nighler. The outstanding work they delivered 
saved Ihe production time and money, creat- 
ing elements wb didn’t have to sub-contract to 
other companies." 

The senes itsell has already been syndi- 
cated to 119 countries worldwide and, tor 
British Robocop followers, ihe intention at the 
moment is to release the series straight on to 
video and then to sell it to television.

Euolution of an image 


-w-T) 


ot on the heals of ASDG's major ADPro 2.5 
upgrade is ImageFX 2,0 from the folks at 
^ Nova Design. Although the program doesn't 
look that d efferent on tho outside, the underlying 
engine has been souped up considerably. 

H's like putting a 5.0 litre Mustang ■*“ 
engine under the hood oi an Escort 
- it doesn’t really look different, but 
it's likely to leave competitors in the 
dust. 

I've had the opportunity to play 
with a beta lest version ol the pro- 
gram and am quite impressed. 

Kaep in mind That as this was writ- 
ten il was still over a month from 
release, some of these features 
might change, and other features 
could be added at the last minuta. 

Memory permitting, you can now 
work with multiple image buffers, 

Thanks to ImagaFX's virtual mem- 
ory support, you should find it easy to work with multi- 
ple 24-bit images simultaneously.. 

Both common and esoteric graphics formats are 
now part of ImageFX's repertoire, including PICT 
(bitmap and vector!), PhotoCD. PIC, Sunraslcr, Silicon 
Graphics, X-windows, Wavefront, GL and DL anima- 
tions, and even C64 Koala! 

A Datatypes loader is also planned for AmigaDOS 
3 users. Animalors will be ecstatic to leam that 
imagsFX 2,0 will include an Mpeg digital video pla- 
yer, decoder, and encoder. (This is the formal useo 
by the CD32 FMV module.) Support is also planned 
for limited loading and saving of QuickTime 
animations. 

The program's painting abilities have been greatly 
Improved. Paper textures let you make it appear as if 
you’re painting on canvas or a 1 expired surface, similar 
to the effects available in Fractal Design Painter lor the 
Macintosh. 

This effect is heightened when using the new water- 
colour, crayon, chalk, and colour-mixer draw modes. 
The air brush is improved, with real-time response.

increased size and the ability to control fading in and 
oul, New gradient fills are also available, including brick 
tile, swirl, and wheel I ills 

You can previaw a number of el facts, such as 
Convolve. Twirl, Rotate, and Apply Texture using the 
new thumbnail feature. Other effects, such as Relief 
Map and Transform, have been greatly improved, with 
better interfaces and more ARexx contrqi 

New effects include Jiggle, Pebble, Rampbdge, 
Lightning, Spherize, 3-D Rotate, and Straw,

Selecting portions of an image is now easier thanks 
to the addition of moving. M crawiing-anl" outlines. 
There's a fantastic new autocrop feature - just select 
the edge colour and the program will crop the edges of 
the image until no more of lhal colour remains. 

Colour correction between NTSC and PAL systems 
is now provided, which will come in handy if you re cre- 
ating professional output to be sent over seas. 

Text capabilities are greatly improved. First and fore- 
most. you can actually enter multiple lines of text

instead of having to create text a line at a time, You can

The update should be available about the time you ■ 
are reading this. Pricing wasn't available as this went to 
press, but if you're currently an ImageFX user you'll find j 
this update worth whatever price Nova Design asks, 

You may remember that ImageFX 1 .0 and 1 .5 were | 
released by GVP. When the contract came up for 
renewal. Nova Design, who created ImageFX, and 
GYP agreed to let the rights to Ihe program revert hack i 
lo Nova. 

Novo will still support GVP buyers and offer 
upgrades to those users. Intact, Nova's Kermit Woodall 
promised that Ihe company will endeavor lo offer better ; 
technical support tor ImageFX, and that they have 
some hot plans lor the program's future despite 
Commodore's current situation, 

IFX 2.0 should be available soon after you road this. 
Nova hadn't firmed up UK distribution at pness-itme. so 
check with your local dealer, or contact Nova via e-mail

editorial 


•1- 


ver the yaars Amtga Computing has, 
■ always Iried to Keep Commodore at 
wr arm's length as far as editorial content 
i m noemed - unlike some of the opposition. 

Admittedly, during the first IS months of my 
i . - -?ment with the magazine Ibis wasn’l par- 
1 u arly difficult, thanks to Commodore's total 
r -iude In the PR department. 

>jnng this period we received a liny hand- 
* of press releases, no product pictures or 
transparencies, and certainly no machines or 
t - oal Commodore add-ons. 

t's true that with the arrival of Kefly Sumner 
and rhe ubiquitous Mr Pfeasance, the tide did 
ippear to be turning. However since the big 
&ang r Commodore seem happy to sit back as 
D«h users and third-party developers head lor 
i watery grave. 

As I write this particular piece Commodore 
“*ave already been officially oul of business for 
.grit weeks. As you’re probably well aware, 
xnng Ihis period the rumours have been tty- 
i g with Phillips, Samsung and Hewlett 
P ackard ail in the frame for a take-over. 
However not a single word from 


Bach 



basics 


Rs lormudore languish in liquidation 
Paul Rustin ashs why are the people who 
made the Rmiga being treated so poorly 


m 


Fund farewell 



before reading loo far into this particular 
oox lake a quick glance at the bottom of the 
page, If you've never really taken much 
nte rest in what's affectionately known as 
"'he flannel panel" it's unlikely you’ll notice 
dhything. 

However Shere’S one all important name 
missing among the molfey crow that make 
up thE Amiga Computing editorial team. Alas, sflor two years ot 
inspired leadership, Stevie Kennedy's name no longer gets a mention. 

During a period spanning almost lour years, Stevie has been the key 
player in I he development and subsequent success of the magazine, 
transforming what wag a struggling publication into the one by which all 
others are judged. 

Unfortunately lor us his talents haven’t gone unnoticed, and as a 
result he's been abducted and will now be editing one of our key PC 
titles, Obviously, it's always difficult to lose such an important member 
of any team, but with a little luck we hope to- maintain the tradition of 
quality that's been the trademark of the “wee mart” himself, 

On behalf of myself and the test ol the team all that remains is to say 
bon voyage to a great editor, an Inspired journalist and a true friend. Asl 
the best mate, and good luck - not that you'll need any.,, 

Paul Austin 
Editor 


Commodore. Obviously negotiations can be 
tricky, so it's not totally surprising the big C 
are keeping their cards close to their corpo 
rate chests. 

But oven so, what about the people who 
made the machine a success in the first 
place? Surely a bigger effort could be made to 
reassure the users and third-party developers 
who’ve earned the Amiga over the years. 

After all, who manufactures Ihe machine 
isn't really Ihe issue, it's the uncertainty that's 
destroying confidence. Since Commodore’s 
demise we've received just one faxed press 
release - and I can only assume the same is 
true fgr other magazines. 

Obviously, fgr those sitting in the comfy 
chairs at Commodora’s head office this proba- 
bly isn't of any great 'concern - especially as 
Mr Pleasance has stated that Ihera won’t be 
any redundancies. 

Great news lor the old boy network, but 
what about the people at Ihe sharp end, such 
as developers and retailers whq quite rightly 
arc terrified at tho prospect of continuing 
.Amiga development or investing in new stock. 

Once these sort of people start to lose faith 
in a machine we're all in real trouble. Any 
machine is only as good as the people who 
support it, and II confidence goes, the 
machine goes with it - the ST being a prime 
example. 

The really Infuriating point is that the 
machine itself wasn't even developed by 
Commodore. In truth, the basic technology 
was bought and subsequently marketed

under the Commodore name. 

In reality it is fair to say the Amiga made 
Commodore and not ihe older way around. As 
a result. I think It's high lime that the company 
who've made millions with ihe Amiga return 
some of the customer loyalty which has paid 
for so many company cars and executive 
lunches, 

Strange as il may seem I’m still optimislic 
about the fulure, and with an injection of cash 
and a fresh management approach I'm sure 
the future for the machine will be secure. 

The basic technology is stilt way ahead of 
ihe opposition and according lo Mr Pleasance, 
prior to big bang the AAA chipset was already 
on test. 

Combine the existing technology with the 
most enthusiastic user base on any platform 
and you have all the mein ingredients for con- 
tinued success. 

In fact, it’s a testament to Commodore's 
incompetence that they actually managed lo 
go under. In tho end I’m sure that the recent 
turmoil will be seen as a blessing. 

After all, if Commodore can take on the 
machine and make millions, the potential lor 
someone like Hewlett Packard or Samsung 
would appear almost unlimited

Provided you answer y, Ihe disk you insert will be 
formatted and the applicalion de-archived. 

Installing utilities 

You should first run the Make Utilities Disk_1 .3 to format 
a blank disk called AC Utilities which will be used to 
store any utilities you eventually install. 

Th>S disk can be used with future CoverDisk utilities 
until it becomes full. The MakeUtitities Disk 1.3 program 
will be a permanent feature of the CoverDisk. 

To install any utilities, boot your machine with your 
CoverDisk inserted in DFO. Utilities can be installed by 
clicking on their install icon lound in the appropriate 
drawer in the WB 1.3 Only drawer. You cannol specify 
their destination and any addilions to the Startup- 
Sequence must be done manually.. 

When installed the utilities are copied to a drawer 
called ACUtils on the ACUtilities disk,

lem wilh Amiga DOS displaying a "disk

Installing utilities 

The procedure for installing utilities is much 
the same as installing applications, except 
that you can boot from your hard drive or 
Workbench disk. As utilises doni need to be 
de-archived, you are asked to specify a 
directory on your hard drive or Workbench 
disk where you would like to install them. 

If you don't want lo install to the default 
directory you can change il by clicking on 
Change Destination. The Show Drives but- 
ton will allow you to select a new device and 
directory. You can create a new drawer for 
your utility to go in by clicking on Ihe Make 
Mew Drawer button and typing in the name. 

Ycu can also make a utilities disk by run- 
ning the MakeUtilitiesDiskf .3 program locat- 
ed in ihe WB_1.3_on|y drawer and installing 
your utilities to here, At times you may be 
asked if you wanl to install a utility's docu- 
mentation. A trek box indicates that the docu- 
mentation is selected for inclusion, but you 
can click on the box to ignore it or simply

elcome to Scroller 2 from The Soft 
Alternative. You now have the abil- 
ity to create stunningly attractive 
text displays which you can genlock onto 
your favourite video, whether it be a wed- 
ding, birthday party or home movie 
{interesting). 

Mot only does Scroller 2 allow you to add 
text to videos but also to scroll It in all direc- 
tions, as wall as add a wide mnge of special 
effects for that professional touch. 

The following tutorial will teach you how to 
use the interface, create a text display and 
scroll it, 

Once Scroller 2 has loaded you will be 
presented with ihe main options window. It is 
from here that you create scrolling taxi dis- 
plays which you can genlock onto your 
videos. 

ABILITY 

Every button also has a keyboard short- 
cut which is displayed on the button. El you 
would like to see what Scroller 2 is capable 
oW press the Fl key and Scroller 2 will run 
through the demo script which is always in 
memory when the program is first loaded. 

When you have finished watching the 
demo press the Esc key to get back to the 
main menu. If you press F2 you will sEe the 
Scroller 2 logo scroll on from the left and 
split into two sections. This is because Ihe 
demo script is not designed for u&b with the 
horizontal scroll option , 

in this flrsr tutorial we will produce a set of

press fhn F2 Key, Mow type Joe Bloggs and 
you will see that it prints in yellow rather 
than white. By pressing F2 we instructed 
Scroller 2 to use Colour 2 (yellow) for sub- 
sequent text. Before we enter the next credrt 
press Return twice to make some space 
beneath the first credit, and then FI once to 
select Cobur i (white). Now type in Sound

if anyone had to nominate ihe nest computer game on the 
Amiga there is no doubt that FI Grand Prix from Geoll 
Crammond would receive serous consideration. 

However, most players have shyed away from the higher per- 
formance levels of FIGP due to tee fact thal it's damn hard dri- 
ving with gears. Most are content to race on Ihe 
rookie levels with maybe the desirudeble function switched off. 

The only drawback of racing on rookie level is thal you 
eventually improve so much teat FfGP fails lo be a challenge 
anymore. 

This is where the FI Grand Pri* Editor steps in. Mimicking 
the look of the game. FlGP-Ed allows you to alter all the 
attributes associated with the game and save them as either 
a serrate file or into the actual FIGP program. Everylime 
you load the game the defaults will be the same as you crea- 
ted in the editor. 

You can Improve the skill of opponent teams and drivers, 
turn players on or off, change helmet designs and best of all 
adit the colours of the cars using a simple but effective 
colour picker,. 

Using the FIGP-Editor is very simple - most of the but- 
tons and windows are self-explanatory. Steve Smith has 
kindly included three example files which you can load into 
the editor and save to the FtGP executable.

The Amiga is a very powerful machine, so powerful 
in fact thar it can quite easily annulate other comput- 
ers, including the ZX Spectrum - that classic B-brt 
computer that really set the computer industry 
moving. 

There are two versions of ZXSpectrum on the 
CoverDisk - a 0OOOO version for the A5G0, A50Q+ 
and A6QQ and a 68020 version for A12Q0S and 
above. 

The good news is that if you own an accelerator 
ZXSpectrum will still function, taking advantage of 
any additional hardware, 

As it stands, the fi&OOO version will be very slow 
unless you own an accelerator. Even the Q£Q ver- 
sion can't quite emulate the Specimen speed, but 
with an D3Q you’ll be looking for tha rubber key- 
board and reminiscing about the goad old days. 

So that you can step back into Ihase funky 6-bit 
days we have also supplied you with a Spectrum 
game called Batman - an isometric 3D game in 
which Batman must collect parts of the BatmobNe 
in order lo save Robin, 

When you first Joad ZXSpectrum you will be 
greeted with Ihe familiar resei screen. By pressing 


down the righl mouse button you can selEcI a vari- 
ety of oplions from the main menus. 

Select Load and you will be able to load in the 
Batman snapshot file. You can even save any pro- 
grams you have written with the Save snapshot 
facility. 

There is a file missing from (he ZXSpectrum 
pack and ibis is Ihe help page. Unfortunately, there 
was just not enough room to gat this on ihe disk. 

When you press the Help key a picture is dis- 
played showing the Spectrum keyboard If you 
want this file write in and tell us and it will be inclu- 
ded on a Jatar GoverDisk. 

A slandard Amiga joystick can be used by plug- 
ging one into port 2 and selecting Kempslon as the 
control method in any games you play. 

The Settings menu allows you to load any 
Spectrum game through a sampler and store it as a 
snapshot fiia. You can load In games by connecting 
your data recorder to a sampler and playing the 
data through it and inlo the program. 

ProSound and Rombo samplers are directly sup- 
ported but almost all samplers lhat are capable of a 
least 20kHz and plug into the parallel port wilf work.

This is a intended to be a fun program 
which, when executed, displays the 
familiar MTV logo in (he lop-left Comer 
of your Workbench. Over lime the logo 
spins, flips and rotates, just like the real 
thing. 

The MTV program does not have an 
icon so you will need to run ii from the 
Cl! or Shell. Use Ihs CD command to 
change directory to the MTV drawer and 
thgn enter MTV. 

The program doos not interfere 
with other programs and can 
Gasify be switched off by holding 
down both mouse buttons for a few 
seconds.

LightWave 3D. the software we've all been 
or has finally been unleashed by ifs NewTs* 
masters in a PAL-lriendiy form without the Video 
Toaster or the need for expensive and quality-reduc-

For so long the exclusive property of those lucky 
North Americans, LightWave has quickly built its-elt a 
reputation in the US and Canadian visual media as 


one of the best and most cost effective graphics 
packages available on any machine. Now it's avail- 
able to videographers in Britain and Europe, and it’s 
even better than before. 

A host of improvements and tweaks have been 
incorporated at the request of users such as 
RoboCop's Lee Wilson and Ns team, the results of 
which give LightWave an impressive edge on the 
companion. Jus! about every menu and screen has 
seen some sod of change, small or targe, but proba- 


bly the most exciting for the future is Lightwave's new 
modular design, 

Referred to by NewTek as "Plug-In Technology", 
the modular approach means that third party develop- 
ers can integrate their own products with version 3,2. | 
Everything from display cards to new object fomnats 
can be catered for and, with the size of the US' 
LighlWave third party industry which has spawned am 
entire range of add-ons. it won't bo long before users 
are plugging in alt sorts of new fealunes.

The Bones feature is another which was

coupie of important changes have addressed 
■its shortfalls, When adding a Bone to an 
existing hierarchy it is no longer necessary to 


scale, position and group Ihe new bone - 
tedious task at the best of times. Light Wav 
now lakes care of this automatically, mak.r

Lightwave 3.2 incorporates several important 
changes over 3.1 . Some of them, such as the 
usa of sliders to control numerical values like 
luminosity levels, are cosmetic and designed 
to improve the program's user friendliness, 
but others are far more solid 

Values assigned to surfaces and textures 
can now be between -393 and +400 per cent; 
camera field of view is now represented 
graphically in the layout screen: motion 
graphs have been improved; Bones have 
been given a great deal more flexibility, the 
list goes on. As most, it not all, changes have 
been made through prompting from profes- 
sional users, they add increased flexibility 
and performance to many aspects of 
UghlWave 3.1 , 

Modelling from scratch has never been 
easy with any 30 package, but Lightwave 
3.2 makes rt easier to create smooth, realistic 
Objects Irom crude, faceted blocks through 
The mstaform option. This is a new method of 
subdividing existing polygons and is much 
mora effective than the old smooth option. In

FEATURE 


image Sizas range from 16 to 16.000 pixels, 
sc there should be a resolution in there to suit 
everyone, and PAL video settings (736 by 
566 on maximum overscan) have jumped off 
the wish list and onto (he screan. 

To improve preview rendering limes, 
there's a new limited region feature so thal 
only a small part of a scene need be ren- 
dered, The is very useful if one surface out of 
twenty or so has been altered and the user 
doesn't want to render every other object in 
the scene just to see how the changes affed 
the outcome. 

Pixel aspect ratios are fully configurable so 
that images rendered for print - rather than 
video - can use completely square pixels, 
and to speed up some animations the motion 
blur and depth of field effects will now work 


only with low anti-aliasing rather than 3.1 's 
insistence on the slower medium or high set- 



tings.

Effects haven't missed out on the fun 
either. Non-linear fog. one of the best tools 
for adding a touch of realism to a scene, is 
now much more configurable. Instead of a 
simple minimum and maximum fog distance, 
the user can now change log density using 
an envelope so lhal it can be made !o thin out 
during an animation, and the maximum 
amount of fog blending - previously set at 
I DO per cent so thal objects eventually disap- 
peered altogether at distance - can be set to 
any desired amount, 

Proper us© of the new fog features make it 
possible to create clouds of fog through 
which an object can fly during animations.

Visual effects supervisor Lee Wilson is the man behind the light fantasise on 
Sky Vision's BoboCop series, and ii was his long term interest in the Amiga and 
Video Toaster which resulted in the show's use ol Lightwave imagery lor much 
ct the 3D scenes we will see when the series opens in the UK. 

It was an introduction made by Lee and destined to become very productive 
Initial use of Lightwave on the two-hour pitot movie was restricted to a shot of 
RoboCop's helicopter flying over the city, but by the later episodes Amiga-gen- 
erated graphics had become a major part of the production 

By the time SkyVision shot th© "Heartbreakens" episode half way through the 
senes. Light Wave was being used to put together over 20 shots per show, 
including a continuous 3 1/2 minute scene from inside RoboCop's cyberspace 
-neuro-nef . “We gel a lot of bang for the buck out of this department," 


explained Lae. . . 

M is a department many Amiga enthusiasts would kill for, equipped with 14- 

Toasters, one of which runs the seventh Raptor accelerator to come off the pro- 
duction line. This new card utilises two R4400 Rise chips as found inside Silicon 
Graphics machines to give th© Amiga a rendering speed to match the best 
available anywhere else. 

"A frame which would have taken seven hours to produce would take only 
ten minutes with the Raptor," claimed Lee. “It’s like having forty toasters in a 
box. and wc can buy ten Raptors (at about SI 4,000 a piece) lor the cost of one 
big SGI machine." 

Lee is no stranger to the use of lop level effects in TV and movie produc- 
tions. His first use of Lightwave lor TV came in the Maniac Mansion show, but 


European readers will know him best lor his work with award-winning dineetc 
David Cronenberg. From being co-designer of computer effects on the eu 
movie Videodrome, he moved on to supervise ©Hects on The Fly and mos 
recently was in charge of the more subtle, less visible trickery employed in Dea 

Ringers. ..... 

However, though his background is in optical effects , Lee insists that the slot 

is everything. Despite the use of Lightwave plus th© Toaster's paint and charat 
t G r-generalion software, and even the employment ol Dpasnt and Brilliance It 
backdrops, he has a healthy disregard for effects which hog the limelight. 

1 don't want to watch a show where the story halts while you look at a coup 
ol minutes of effects just for the sake of it. In Dead Ringers we used a tot ■ 
effects which you never even notice. It's not the effects, it & the story. 

Th© value of the work is in the animator or artist and you see some pretty be 
stuff when this is forgotten. One of the most common mistakes and the easie 
thing to fix is bad use of lights and textures which people use just because thr 
can. This breaks the realism, and the only way to get good results is to use re 
world measurements and real world images as much as possible 

So what advice does h© have for aspiring animators? 

Thg besl thing you can do is watch TV and movies and ask yourscll how lh< 
bid that. I grew up with film and television and when I was 14 I got a Super 
camera and tried out the effects and techniques with no money or special trie* 
Just look and s#s what's out there and really pay attention. 

‘You can use a 35mm camera to take pictures ol a city street, have them ; 
on Photo-CD in high quality resolution, then drive your 3D car down a real sire 
You have to take measurements and think about camera pitch, angle, the re 
tiv© scale of objects and if you work with real images and real dimensions eve 
thing will look □ lot more realistic, tf you've got the passion for it there s rcc 
nothing to stop you."

PROCESSORS 

ScreamerNet software is sold separately 
with the Raptor card and is used across an 
Ethernet LAN to enable LighlWave to mako 
use of remote processors offering many mo-re 
millions of instructions per second (Mips) 
than the Amiga's fastest CPU, the 69040, 
could ever manage. 

Up to eight processors can be called upon 
to Cut rendering limes to a small fraction of 


I he original and boost Lightwave's perfor- 
mance on an Amiga up to and above that of 
Softimage, Wavefront, and Alias packages 
running on a Silicon Graphics machine. With 
this sort of performance and such a phoe tag, 
Lightwave only needs to break down The 
computer snobbery barrier to make the same 
impact here as it has in the Slates 
This has been a quick rundown of the most 
important new features found in Lightwave 
3,2, but there are so many improvements that 
it hasn't been possible to cany out our usual 
in-depth evaluation, particularly of a package 
which arrived just before we went lo print. 
Once wa've managed to drag Mr Austin 
away from the program long enough to draw 
breath, have a meal and a bath, we'll bring 
you an update of how the new features 
shape up to imc-nso use.

Amiga Computing resisted the temptalion to drool over Lightwave for a long 
lime because until last year there was no 'viable way of using the package 
on this side of the Atlantic. Buying the NTSC-only Video Toaster just tD usa 
Lightwave was akin lo paying $2000 just for the hardware dongle, but when 
the third party Light Rave dongle appeared and put (he first cracks in 
Lightwave’s NTSC armour, we knew it was only a matter of time before 
NewTak got the PAL message, 

We rave about this package because anyone who has seen il in action, 
enjoyed the delights of using H to create animations, or seen Ihe output of 
which it is capable, can fully understand why it has been one of the Amiga's 
biggest selling points in the US for the past few years. Put simply, the only 
way to better Lightwave as an animation tool for TV, film, or video ts to 
spend tens of thousands of pounds on a Silicon Graphics machine and 
another £1 0,000 or so on the accompanying software. 

No desktop software on any other machine, whether Mac or PC. can hold 
a candle to Lightwave, and when compared to Autodesk's powerful 3D 
Studio software - £2500 worth of excellent software hampered by a typically 
Windows-dominated front end - the Amiga's £600 package comes up 
smelling of roses. So there. 



I you haven't yet figured out what all the fuss is about, mention of this wonderful 
ijghtWava program might be leaving you cold, So a litlte explanation is in order. 

Originally released as one element in a package of programs designed to work 
* NewTek s Video Toaster TV studio on a board", LighlWave quickly grew into 
something of a legend, (t Is a 3D modolling and rendering package split into two 
main sections; the modeller and the layout screens. 

In the modeller, a range of advanced toots including taper, shear, bend and so 
re can be used to create 3D objects in stunning detail. It is here that certain parts 
1 the object are assigned ’’surfaces", the life btood of any Lightwave objoct 
Fmm the modeller the raw object, complete with named but blank surfaces,, is 

passed to the layout section 
where surfaces can be edited

to The heart's content. 
Luminosity (brightness), 
odour, bitmap textures, fens 
flares,, procedural textures 
(such as bump maps), and all 
the other paraphernalia of the 
3D world are added in layout.

animations are created and the final image produced. The reason Lightwave is a 
"must have" is the extreme ease with which animations can quickly be built up and 
previewed in real time using a system so elegant and easy to use Ihat making an 
aircraft go through a complex sequence of aerobatic manoeuvres, something at 
which one would baulk using other packages, is a complete doddle. Coupled with 
the program's excellent photorealistic output and speed of rendering, this ease of 
animation puls Lightwave ahead of any package in Its price range, and many 
beyond it. 

For years, Lightwave has run only on machines equipped with the Video Toaster, 
a combination of chroma- keyer, switcher, and video mixer which, though superb, 
has never appeared In a PAL-compatible form. Years of staring at US images and 
animations with green eyes and a grim smile are about tq end with the release of 
LighlWave 3.2, so il you haven't got the message yet, don'l worry - you soon will.

in real life wilhout every motion having to be 
set manually, DMM takes care of collisions, 
bounces, gravity and so on to produce a very 
believable real ■world reaction ta the effects of 
olftEr objects and global forces like wind and 
gravity. 

When the scene is completed to Ihe user's 
satisfaction it can be saved out again as a 
standard LightWave scene for later use in the 
layout section. The resulting scene appears 
much mere lifefike thanks to the invisible 
hands of those real-world forces we experi- 
ence every day of our lives but lake lor grant- 
ed. 

Simulating Ihe action of a cue ball hitting a 
triangle of reds on a snooker table would take 
an age using keyframe animation, but with 
DMM it is easy. Just set the mass and elas- 
ticity of ihe balls (you can do Ihis once and 
copy the attributes to the other balls), and the 
Initial velocity of ihe cue ball, then sit back 
while DMM does ail the work. 

The program's only real limit is that colli- 
sions are only delected where a point collides 
with a polygon which olten means that 
objects have to be given extra points in the 
area of the expected collision, but this is e 
small price to pay for DM M's performance. 
Again, previews can be very slow to gener- 
ate,. as can the tinal scene data from the in- 
progress work file, but the results are worth 
the wait, 

As angular velocity (rotation), drag factor 
and elasticity can be set for each object at 
the beginning of a scene, it should theoreti- 
cally be possible to set up any kind of real- 
world go 1 1 is ion you like before saving the 
scene to Light Wave. Any senous animator 
will want to get Ns or her hands on this soft' 
ware as soon as possible.

FEATURE 


Wave Writer 

Despite LightWave‘s excellent use of 
PostScript Type 1 fonts to produce 
smooth spline-based, rendered text, 
the use of fonts in the program is a little 
limited. In response to Ihis, DBA Unli 
Graphics have produced Wave Writer, 
a program dedicated to the sole (ask of 
producing three dimensional text for 
use in Lightwave scenes, 

The program has an easy-EQ-use 
interface and a simple approach to its 
task, bul there are plenty of options 
lurking below the surface. Users can 
add text by default as (he usual hori- 
zontal lines, but they can also fit the 
text to an arc of a user-delmed degree, 
pin lext lo a sine wave, write it vertical- 
ly, rotate the letters at varying angles, 
and all this in any one or more of Ihe 
three axes. 

Carrying oul this sort of operation in 
Lightwave would of course bo possi- 
ble, but much more time consuming. 
Wave Writer takes (he lime and the 
tedium out ot the process, and is there- 
fore ideal for those who create a lot of 
flying logo-style am ms. 

En addition to creating the text 
cbiects. Wave Writer can be use to add 
bevel elfecls and set the basic attribut- 
es of Ihe various surfaces on each let- 
ter, so by the lime a piece af text is 
loadad into UghtWave it can be ready 
to use straight off ihe bat, 

Fauly close control is offered over 
scene settings such as the number of 
tights used, their type, position, colour 
and intensity, and the same with back- 
drop colour. When saving from Wavo 
Writer, ihe user saves all these settings 
in a scene file which can be loaded lor 
instant rendering in LightWave. 

Wave Writer is a fairly specialised 
package and perhaps no! for all 
LightWave users, but those who make 
extensive use of lext, whether lor cor- 
porate logo or general animation work, 
would be weir advised to give tt a whirl.

Surface Pro 


This is one of those packages which, 
like Essence for imagine users, can 
transform the look and (eel of any ren- 
dered image. Surface Fro is a collection 
of pra-delinedl surfaces mostly based on 
images supplied with the package and 
augmented by various scene and object 
files to demonstrate their use. 

OK, so what? You can create your 
own surfaces after all, so what's differ- 
ent about this I6l? Well, anyone who has experimented with 
creating a new surface from scratch in Lightwave will know just how tedious the process can 
be and how much lime and effort is requited to get something looking just right. 

Surface Pro takes all the work out of this by offering 60 surfaces, all high quality, and all using seamless images 
so that when tiled the edges don't show. To use them you just load them up and slap them on an object. 
Particularly impressive are the work-a-day surfaces such as wood and brick, flagstones and so on. but there era 

also enough spaces hip textures to keep Trek fans happy, . _ , . 

Apart from a bit ol editing here and there to set scale and orientation to the proper levels for each object, Surface 
Pro surfaces work well and they work instantly. However, they can be even more useful with jusl a bit of messing 

around. 

As most surfaces use seamless images to create their effects, the use of texture velocity settings can give ani- 
mated fire or water without daft gaps appearing, and mixing some of the high quality image maps supplied with lha 

package can have interesting results, , „ . _ .. , 

Whether used as a bank of stock surfaces or as the starting point for experimentation, Surface Pro can add new 

life to animators’ work. 




Shareware bonanza 


Where do I start? The existence of a 
vibrant Lightwave community in the USA 
also ensmes the existence of a huge base 
of freeware and shareware objects, 
images, surfaces, scenes and just about 
everything else I he new Lightwave owner 
could want, much of it available through 
bulletin boards or shareware libraries. 

One collection which stands out ter clos- 
er examination is that put together by 
Thomas Dawson and currently doing the 
BBS rounds under the name TDTXTR.Iha. 
This compilation of four reflection maps, 
two bump maps, and 19 surfaces has 
obviously had time and loving attention 
lavished on it by its creator and the quality 
shines through.

Tom's textures are well worth a download editing is required to get the most from 

or a phone call to a shareware library. 

Most impressive of all is the fire texture m 

which uses simple techniques not unlike ^ 

* some of the surfaces, but they are inven- 

^ live enough to provide food for new ideas 

**■ as we || as being ready for instant use, 

Commodore s future shape may still be in flux, but 
one thing is certain : NewTek are going trom strength 
to strength. With the opening of another huge market 
in the form of Britain and Europe, Lightwave is sure to 
confirm its place as the premier desktop rendering 
and animation system, 

PC snobs can waffle all they like about the charms 
of the over-priced, over-dinky 30 Studio, but for func- 
tionality, ease of use, features and price point 

Lightwave simply has no match, RoboCop, Star Trek 
TNG The Movie, Star Trek VI, SeaQueSl DSV, and 
Babylon S are just the beginning, and as the ultra 
expensive world of videography and special effects 
wakes up to the potential of a Lightwave system used 
either as a modeller or as a rendering system with the 
Raptor card, you can expect to see Amiga outfits vie 
with the mighty Industrial Light and IVtagic for a slice 
of the big screen pie.

ong have l wished for some way lo 
I; beef up my Amiga 3QOOT s anima 
tion capabilities. I bought a Picasso 
card, but all hough \ could display 
pretty pictures in all their 24-bil glory,, t still 
. v-dn't gg-t them lo move. 

But now there is a shareware program 
tailed Main Actor, a sort ol ADPro tor amma- 
ters hut a lot cheaper. 

Main Actor follows AD Pro's principles of 
Loaders and Savers quile closely, with direc- 
■'jTies lor Anim_Loaders/_ Savers and 
: c Lcaders/_5avers. 

Also, like ADPro, MainActor has Universal 1 
Raiders for automatically sensing the type of 
m atig-n or picture to be loaded 
One importan! poinj to note aboul 
MainAclor's Universal loaders is that they 
come in several flavours to support the best 
* mown graphics boards, 

Thus there is a UniversaLRetma loader, a 
JniversaL_Picassoll loader and one for (he 
Merlin ca rC |. An EGS loader has yEl to be cre- 
ated, but il is on the aulhor's To-Do-Llsl, 

The reason for separate loaders for these 
boards is that, unlike the Amiga graphics 
. r-iipsat, these cards use the same sod of 
graphics chips that are used in high-end VGA 
cards, and are thus morn suiled lo chunky 
pot el animations (see bojtout). 

in lad, irying to play a normal ANIM- 5 ani- 
- ation fhal took ten seconds lo play back on 
Ihe Amiga took nearly 13 minutes to play 
back on the Picasso! 

MainActor supports several different ANIM 
■ rmais from AN IMS lo ANIM9. as well as 
. i'der variants such as ANIM3 and ANIMJ. In 
common with dariSSA, animation palettes 
can change from frame lo frame which cer- 
•ainiy will help animators on a limited colour 
budget. 

Other animation formats MainActor 


Do shareware! 



The author of MainActor has decided 
to make 11 a shareware package rather 
than a commercial offering, although it 
is good enough lo be one. 

As it comes from your local PD 
library, MainActor is not crippled in any 
way. You can still create, convert and 
play back animations in various for- 
mats, taut as you save an anim you will 
get a requester appearing every five 
frames asking you to register your 
copy. 

This, to my mind. Is the fairest way 
of ensuring registration of a shareware 
package, because although you might 
think that having a requester pop up 
every five frames Is no big deal, if you 
have a 350-frame animation to save it 
will be popping up often enough to get 
you realty frustrated, 

I know a lof of people complain 
about registering shareware, especially 
when It is of foreign origin, but it really 
isn't that hard. And in MainActor's case 
1 1 is definitely worth it. 


Hh 



antics 


supports consist mainly of Types best-known 
on the PC, including DL, FLl r FLC and AVI. 

DL is a pretty old format, bul there are 
thousands of FLI and FLC format anims 
available in the Public Domain. AVI is a much 
newer format developed by Microsoft, mainly 
To enable movies to be played in a window on 
The screen, 

The AVI format has several different 
favours, taut as yet MainActor can only load 
8-bit AVIs and canT copo with the sound- 
mack. 


Still animations are a — 
thing of the past — 
(RainRctar brings life and — 
meaning to gour screen, — 
Frank Hard explains how — 


SAMPLES 

Talkmg of sound, MainActor has the ability 
lo attach an IFF sample to each individual 
frame of your animation, Nolhing could be 
simpler. You just tell MainActor which Irame 
to attach the sample to, which channel to play 
it through and that's it. 

MainActor then creates a file called ami Mr 
NAME.snd where ANIM NAME is the name of 
your animation, and then whenever you use 
MainActor or MainView - Ihe standalone 
anim viewer - to show your animation, it 
automatically plays Ihe sample for you, 

The one slight difficulty is that only the path 
and name of the sample is kept with the 
anim, which means that you might have 


rn earn* you r* 
wondering 
how big 
thorn* E Mtaa 
from 
from* to 

(h»*n. 



problems if you move your samples drawer. 

Crealing an animation n MainActor from 
Single Frames is a very easy process . Just got 
all your frames generated by, say. Imagine or 
Lightwave, set your loader type lo Picture 
and IFF, hlrthe load button and get the entire 
picture list, Then choose Select AH from the 
menu and choose your animation savor type. 

If you are creating an anim to be played 
back on the Amiga select one of Ihe ANIM 
formats, and if you wanl to give your work to 
a Friend with a PC or graphics card, choose 
FLI or FLC. Then just hit Save. 

MainActor will ask whether you want a 
Palelte-per-frame animation or one with a 
locked palette and then it will start saving. 
And just as you can Save single frames into 
an animation, you can also save an anima- 
tion back ouf as single frames, in case you 
want to do some post-processing or just get 
that one Frame to keep as a still. 

Converting one sod of anim into another 
Follows Ihe same sort of rules and is just as 
easy. 

There is one additional animation format 
that hasn't yet been discussed. Because of 
the Author's close association with Village 
Tronic, the creators of the Picassoll graphics 
card. MainActor will also creale Picasso for- 
mat animations which can be in either 0-bit, 
16-bit or 24-bit. 

MainActor will automatically dither £4-bit

ANIMATION 


► 

images down to 16-bi:t if you want if 10 , but 0- 
tiit anims have to have their £4-bH frames 
rendered down lo 256 colours using some 
other package , such as ADPro. 

Playback speeds using this Picasso formal 
are very impressive and the quality is out- 
standing, The file size »sn'1 actually as oner- 
mows as you Urink it will be either. 

A 350-lrame anitn t created as a 256 
colour FLC is about SMB in size, white its 16- 
bit Picasso counterpart is only 5.5MB Not 
bad for all those extra colours! 

One of the bugbears wilh animation is nor- 
mally having to either draw or render heaps 
more frames if you want your animation to 
pause for a white an a particular frame. 

With MainActor this isn't necessary. You 
can sel the limeeode for oatih frame Individu- 
ally, showing the first frame for three sec- 
onds, for example, and the last for two sec- 


Are qour animations 
rhunhu enough? 


When the Amiga was first dreamt up, rts designers 
saw fit to use a bitplane method of screen representa- 
tion. That's to say, your four-colour Workbench 
screen is made up of two bitplanes and the combina- 
tions of the two bilplanes give four different colours. 

This is an extremely cost-effective way of doing 
things when the colour count is low, say up to 32 
colours (which is five bitplanes). Any more than that 
and things realty start to slow down, which is obvious- 
ly not acceptable for animation (or a dacont operating 
system, for that matter). 

Tha originators ol tha VGA standard on the PC 
decided to go another route and head straight for a 


256-colour screen formal. Now, as we all know, 256 
colours can be represented by eight bitplanes, but it's 
fairly stow as anyone with an AGA machine who has 
tried 1C run their Workbench In that many colours has 
found out. 

If 256 colours is eighl bitplanes, then each pixel on 
the screen could just as easily be represented by a 
single byte (or eight bits) r rather than representing the 
whole screen as eight rather unwieldy bitplanes. 

This has advantages and disadvantages. Firstly, it 
means that a two-colour chunky pixel screen is as 
slow as a 256-CQlcur one, and that it’s a lol harder to 
do things like parallax effects or scrolling, But by the 
same count it is a lot easier to do stufl like scaling and 
rotating. 

The advenl of the CD32, with its Akiko chip respon- 
sible for converting chunky pixel information to bit- 
planes, should mean that sometime in the future we 
should sea Amigas capable of dealing with both sorts 
of graphics easily. 


onds. 

This isn't possible with Ihe PC anim for- 
mats as they don’t have a provision tor time- 
coding, but it works just fine with all the ANIM 
variants and the Picasso formal. 

PLAYBACK 

Once you have made all these amazing 
256-colour anims, you might look at the fils 
sizes and notice lhat you don’t actually have 
enough PAM to load them back into 
MainActor and play thorn back. You can’t 
even play them back through MainView. 
What next? 

Well, MainActor has a facility to play anims 
back from hard disk, It mighl not ba a perfect 
solution bul how else are you going to play a 
40MB animation? 

And as a matter of (act, MainActor is no 
slouch when it comes to playback from hard 
disk. With most of the animations t have cre- 
ated, playing back from hard disk still gives 
me about to frames per second on average. 

MainActor has a host of olhar little features 
mart you might not nonce at first because of 
its amazing ability to make all these anims 
from your stills, but the fact that you can have 
up to live animation projects open at any lime 
is a boon, as is Marn Actor’s ARexx interface, 

In lerms of Information gathering, 
MainActor provides you with a size and Ume 
profile To help fine tune your anims. The size 
profile shows graphically just how large each 
frame of your animalron is. while (he lime pro- 
file shows where potential problems might 




lurk in the time taken to decode each frame 
of the animation. 

Any black bars in this graph show lhat 
those frames are taking too long to decode 
and noed to have changes made. 

In conclusion, I would say that MainActor is 
probably the best piece of software to go on 
my hard drive this year, ft has improved 
immeasurably since l first started using it 
when if was version 1.2 back in November 
last year, and I look forward to the same 
amount of Improvement when I get version 2, 
One man on his own has put together a 
package that beats various commercial pack- 
ages hands down, and has released it as a 
shareware product whose registration fee is 
less than most commercial pieces of soft- 
ware, and is worth a lol more, 

In the future 1 would like to sea the devel- 
opments that the aulhor talks about, such as 
Mpeg loaders and savers, along wilh 
improvement to the AHexx interface and ihe

1 would also like to see the ability to toad

more importantly, to he able to save them

All in all, this is an admirable effort by a 
superb programmer who deserves to have 
great success.

[RMTIUIIV 

The CES event was an open arena for 
ill involved in the gaming industry to 
how their creative muscle. Aside from 
ihe games software houses, there were 
oienty ot other companies trawling the 
show for business. Their products tend 
o be a little more generalised in so far as 
ey are targeted at multiple platforms. 
They say image is everything and when 
? comes to gaming software, nothing 
Quid be further from the iruth. In fact, 
he graphics have become such a critical 
part of the game design process that 
there are companies out there who either 
sell purpose-built equipment or provide a 
-.tv ice that caters for the game player's 
i hirst for graphic perfection. 

Two such companies include Alias 
Research Limited end Wavefront. Not 
jnly were they represented hy a phalanx 
il designers and PR people, the compa- 
res had set up shop on the floor end 
were giving slick demonstrations to spell- 
bound audiences, with the aid of their 
Jnix-based Silicon Graphics Indy work- 
stations. Within seconds the overhead 


screen was tilled with skeletal images 
being rotated, flipped, squashed and 
blown up, all at the flick of the wrist and 
press ot a button. 

This graphics manipulation technology 
has been around a while, but now with 
the addition of ray tracing, surface textur- 
ing and surface texture Interaction, new 
dimensions in graphics' development are 
now being realised. 

First the designer will create the skele- 
ton of the object they have visualised. 
Once deemed gameworthy, the skeleton 
will be given the digital equivalent of 
tendons. 

These are very similar fo human 
design, in which the middle ot one 'bone 
is joined lo the other via a line (tendon). 
This technique is important, for it dictates 
how the sklnAexltire covering a join will 
flex and move. 

With the tendons now in place, next 
comes the skin. Several more quick 
clicks and button presses instantly cover 
Ihe entity with a fresh coat of new. life- 
like skin. 

For those of you wondering whether 
your machine will do justice lo the many 
graphic masterpieces now possible, fret

reality 


Noie of interest; Wavefront's software was used in the making ol 
such Rims like In The Line of Fire. Lawnmoww Man. and Aliens Ell. 
Lucas Film's Industrial Light and Magic, the movie special-effects 
gurus, enlisted the help of Alias Research software in Ihe produc- 
tion of The Fli ntstones - keep an eye out for Dine. 

Ever wondered what it would realty reel like to be on ihe receiv- 
ing end of a 10,000 watt laser discharge. Now you can buy devices 
that not only help you beat up your on-screen opponent, but will 
happily beat you up too. Aura Systems Inc, taking the virtual reality 
concept to the extreme, have come up with virtual pain (although 
not quite so virtual). 

A device that wears like a ruck sack enables the plays r to feel 
every kick, punch and laser beam of their favourite game via a 
large speaker pressed against their back. It will work with any 
machine that puts out sound and 1 his masochist's fun factory is 
scheduled for release around Europe in September.

not. The software employed in the ere* 
ation of these pseudo-lifeforms is aware 
of possible target platform limitations and 
will effectively optimize the graphics pro- 
duced accordingly. 

The good news here is that since the 
optimization process Is all built in and 
therefore simple to apply, it will be a good 
while before your machine is not eligible 
for these visual assaults. 

Despite being a US show and not 
wishing to appear overtly nationalist 
(just a little proud), it was good to wit- 
ness a strong British presence. 
Pursuant to many conversations, it was 
clear that these companies rated the 
Amiga as strongly as Sega, Nintendo or 
equivalent, and had every intention of its 
continued support and development, 
regardless of its popularity in the 
States, 

Britain and its support for the Amiga 
range has for a long time been setting 
the pace in Ihe recreational computing 
world. The Consumer Electronics Show 
and its participants gave me cause to 
think this will continue for a long while 
to come, flfc

warehouses. Performance wise, the PCMCIA, 
adapter is fairly slow, mainly due to the iR-bit 
arc hi lecture, but il is adequate for mo?t 
users. 

As tor software, there is a wealth of PD 
disks lhat offor a wide selection of program* 
and utilities on a single CD. Unfortunately 
most of these disks are poorly put together 
and in tests carried out, many of she pro- 
grams crashed when run. 

CD3£ also offers a groat deal of softwarp 
although any that rely on I he internal ham- 
ware specific to CD32 will not work. Them is 
no auto bool option for disks, so running 
games can prove a problem. 

Users will need lo study startup-sBqusr*r#»c 
as it is necessary to run the contents of game 
dteks via Workbench This could cause prob- 
lems for lhase A 1200 owners not totally profi- 
cient with AmigaDQS. 

The fact that the disks do not auto bnn| 
moans that the contents ol game disks can 
be easily accessed and copied to a hard 
dtive. To test this we managed to install Body 
Blows CD32 onto a hard drive. 

It did take up 14Mb bul it ran successfully 
without the need for Ihe CD. Obviously, we 
deleted it immediately. /z'if

four Amige can understand the CD drive 
device and the excellent JukeBox program 
winch allows you to control music CDs with 
real ease. 

□bviousiy, any music CDs will not be able 
' be diverted through the A12Q0 and must 
’ e connected to an amplifier or stereo via the 
headphone socket on Ihe particular CD drive 
i ou are using. 

Using the Juke Box program you can play, 
{ iuse. forward, rewind, search for specific 
•-acks and shuffle tracks - In (act, all the 
*i r gs you can do wilh a professional perso 
nai CD player. 

Considering ihe poor documentation, (he 
a r jal installer software is very easy to use 
and contains all the programs you will need in 
: 'dor to gel your CD drive up and running. 

The main program is called FindCD and 
t u idmatically searches for a suitable CD 
: ve The user has lo do very little as Ihe 
:;-ogram performs all Ihe difficult setting up

3c what is Ihe major advantage of having 
a CD drive connected to an Al 200? Certainly 
the most important advantage is the ability lo

tantly a floppy disk. Files that take up larga

The bottom line here is whether or not it is worth forking out £&9 for the 
Controller and an extra £150-£2SD lor a compatible CD drive. There 
really isn’t enough Amiga application software on CD and the material 
that is available isn't of a great quality, 

The fact that you can now buy a CD32 with software for only £299.99 
really doesn't make the purchase of an A120D CD drive set -up a Tmarv 
daily sound investment - not at the moment anyway. 

If an AtJQQ CD drive is something you definitely want, il would proba- 
bly be wiser to watt for the Zappo Smart Drive from ZCl as it promises 
the compatibility ol the C012M Controller plus an external power supply, 
alitor the price of £199.99. 

The Zappo also uses software to emulate the Planar chip which 
should give A 1200 owners total access to all CD32 software, someth ng 
Ihe CD 1200 Controller doesn't otter.

SEPTEMBER 1994 












— jimnxB 





I'd like to utter a few 
words concerning 
Commodore and their 
future. Let's start with 
the hastes, will there 
be one? 

Looking abruptly 
away from Commodores corporate capers 
- which are worrying indeed - what are 
they doing lo keep the Amiga afloat? 
Their move of discontinuing their PC man- 
ufacturing was just a smoke screen 
wasn r l it? 

After all, Ihey don't really need it when 
they’ve got the Amiga department - which 
can be set to making PowerPCs running 
WindowsNT - do they? Ai the very least, 
Apple kept System 7 as the main OS of 
their PowerM ACs and left Windows as a 
software option. 

“We're developing a chip of our own" Mr. 
Pleasance blurted - ha! I’ll bet you what- 
ever you’ve got, CBM's thrown a few nick- 
els into Intel's and IBM's joint PowerPC 
project, That would certainly fit in with 
the “olher well known companies" he 
spoke of. 

So, when the new Power Amiga 
arrives next spring, it looks like 
Commodore's about to loose at least one 
user. 

I don't want a PC and I never wanted 
one. Tell you what, if CBM’s dropping The 
Amiga OS and all the other things that 
make the Amiga unique and i he greatest - 
if overpriced in the higher range - all-round 
computer ever built, why nol let me lake 
care of the bits they abandoned. I'll do il, 
no charge. 


As far as the Amiga’s future is con- 
cerned there's still no fresh news at this 
stage - check the news pages for late 
breaking info. 

But essentially the ball Is in the buy- 
ers court, in my opinion the best possi- 
ble outcome would be for the new own- 
ers to licence manufacture of the Amiga 
to anyone wilting to subscribe to a fran- 
chise deal. 

That way development could continue 
courtesy of the revenue generated, the 
word would be spread far and wide, 
third-party developers would be 
inspired, and the machine would finally 


How Swede i 





be given the opportunity lhat the PC 
has enjoyed since day one. 

The ability for anyone with the means 
to build PCs Is the only reason that this 
particular technological dinosaur has 
attained and maintained its position as 
the most widespread computer platform 
on the planet. 

As for your concerns about Windows 
NT, l think you're slightly confused, 

According to our 

sources, Windows NT 
is going to be an 
option and not a com- 
plete replacement for 
the Amiga's own OS. 

As for your hatred of 
other platforms, frankly I 
think you're being a little 
naive. As Britain may 
discover at its cost, 
European uninaturalism 
Isn’t a viable option 
in a rapidly shrinking 
world: - and the same is 
true in the microcosm 
of the computer industry. 
The one thing that s kept ihe 
Amiga in the minor leagues in a 
corporate seise has been it’s inability 
to assimilate easily into big business. If 
adding support for additional 
operating systems can remove this par- 
ticular obstacle It can only be a good 
thing. 


have you ditched a limeless logo for 
definitely mid-BOs one? 


As for the masthead fm afraid it a 
classic case of taste, you don't like 
most people do, that’s life! Democra 
in action. 

However it’s worth putting the ques- 
tion of design into contort. The end 
redesign of Amiga Computing wa 
achieved in less than a month 
Something which in my opinion was 
near miracle. 

Personally I think the men respons- 
ible, namely Tym Lecky - our resided 
art editor - can't be praised hlghl 
enough. I suggest you glance around 
the magazine and count the number 
unique design elements - the ESF 
logo being a classic example - then 
ask yourself was this petty criticism 
really Justified,

H readers opinion 



Concerning the new layout; so you've 
replaced the coloured boxes with coloured 
frames and added a few connecting lines 
(would you believe, I first thought that 
you'd included an electronics CAD pack- 
age on the disk?) Fine with me, but why 


I know that advertising makes a ma& 
component of Ihe stuff that flows through 
a magazine's veins, but do you real y 
warn any part with people whose ads sa 
things like; 

“Women should stay in Ihe k itch an" 
and here's a manual on how to gel 'err 
back in there. "How to gat a one night 
stand." "Better gel some muscles kid" cr 
"Hey, get hold of our totally opaque 
shades, with flashing tights on the 
inside - recommended by the Playboy 
magazine " 

These dubious messages are obviously 
created by people who have stereotyped 
Amiga users as pimpled teenagers who 
say a prayer to plumber Mario 
every evening before hanging up their 
anoraks. I for one don’t feel worthy of 


I am writing this letter to you because I far one would like to see a tutorial on 
Blitz Basic 2 In your magazine. 

Other magazines have had tutorials on Blitz Basic 2 but they wore 
on how to make games. What about Ihe other side of 
programming like application programs such as the one on last month's 
magazine PhonetL 

I know there are a lot of readers besides me out there who would like to 
see a tutorial on applications. 

Many would-be applications programmers have turned their noses up at 
Amos simply because it is not possible to write programs thal communicate 
with the user Ihrough Intuition windows and gadgets. 

During my attempls to masler Amos it's become clear chat all the books 
are geared towards putting games together. I feel I am the only one trying lo 
develop applications. 

Why are all books and mag tutorials on M How to put games together?' 


Also, are there going to be any books on Blitz Basic 2? 


K. Winspear, Hartlepool 


Your prayers are answered. In this very Issue we embark on the first of a 
six-pad tutorial hosted by Mike MUne and dedicated lo Blitz Basic 2. But 
perhaps more importantly, the new series is geared exclusively to the 
development of appEicatlons. 

As for your Amos comments, iVm true the language isn't particularly 
au fait with intuition. However, If you check out last month's Amos 
insight you'll discover an add-on for Amos designed specifically to 
incorporate elements from intuition into Amos programs. 

As for a third-party reference manual for Bllti Basic, I'm afraid the 
news isn't quite so good- As far as I'm aware there aren’t any plans, 
however the program does have an official UK distributor who may be 
able to help. Contact Guildhall Leisure Services onr 0302 890000.

waving such propaganda aimed 
K*arPs me. 

5*slcally I couldn't agree more. But to 
se honest there's little that can be done 
■ 5m the editorial standpoint. 

During my lime with the magazine the 
editorial content has always been 
, -larded fiercely end has never suc- 
-mibed to pressure from advertisers. 

As a result the magazine has lost a 
et of revenue In the form of ads and 
sromotions, With this In mind, it’s har- 
Ty fair or correct for editorial to sud- 
denly start dictating to the advertising 
apartment. 

Censorship isn't something to 
sprooch lightly, regardless of the 
-norai or intellectual arguments. A pos- 
able answer would be to abandon our 
inciples and adopt an advertorial 
preach to fill the pages. 

But that ain't going lo happen. So I'm 
ilraid you’ll have to suffer the Arthur 
Daley's until they realise not all Amiga 
users are pre- pubescent sexists. 

Freebie or not 
freebie. 

About the “full price packages" you 
include. I can see two options: either leave 
them out completely, or do so for a couple 
1 monlhs at a time and save up. 

Vou’see, we don’t really need crappy, 
:*cond, or evep third-rate software like 
r usion paint or Cinemorph. It's clear to all 
Ql us - or so I hope - that Cover Disk “free- 
bies" are jusl a way lo squeeze I ha Iasi 
trops of juice out of an obsolete or vasily 
nterior piece of software. 

1 can bul imagrne how many sales GVP 
osl to A5QG in the morphing combat, I heir 
effort was truly pathetic and rather compa- 
rable with VMorph - written in Amos. 
Admittedly there have baan many gems: 
Maxip!an4, SBase, Protoxf and 
Bars&Pipes2Jr spring lo mind. 

This is what we wanl. Even if these two 
are old versions (no l don't include B&P 
”iere) and Ihe upgrade offers usually avail- 
able make less than a diflorence from full 
price, it's too' bad the save-up option is 
unrealistic. 

Truly, the publishers aren't likely to let 
lf Q of their premium software, no matter 
what you offer them, bul il would certainly 
have boon a jolly one. 

This loaves us with dropping Ihe "free- 
-••es", or carrying on like you've done so 
far - mosl likely, since you've got a read- 
er's survey to lean back on. Bul at least do 



me one favour, Stop lavishing lousy soft- 
ware with astounding superlatives, prais- 
ing them and rising them, to ihe skies, 
stop printing what they sold 13 years ago 
and please, once you've had say a 


word processor on the disk, don't 
coma later with another one which 
is of ihe same, or even lowor 
standard.

possible. 

However your opinion does raise an 
interesting point. Firstly Commercial

there's no argument there. Ideally 
we'd abandon the practise entirely 
and return lo strictly PD end

moratorium on commercial software. 
Needless to say the response wasn't 
exactly enthusiastic - the reason being 
the masonry attitude of people like 
yourself. 

“■ The cause of occasional crap 
CoverDisks across all the Amiga 
i magazines is punter pressure, 
and an almost complete lack of 
reader loyalty from the majority 
of the buying public, 
if we dropped our commercial 
f software I can guarantee Amiga 
f Computing would be transformed 
from one of the beet-selling Amiga 
magazines to the worst almost 
overnight. 

Oft, so you like getting something for 
nothing - who doesn’t - but if this 
madness continues you'll get 
more and more golden oldies to 
run on a machine that nobody can be 
bothered developing for - after all 
what's the point the markets flooded 
right! 

I hope you like this months Scroller II 
CoverDlsk - it should completely Scup- 
per the market for video litlers for quite 
sometime., - 


I am trying to follow the tutorial for assembler by Mark 
Jackson, bul 1 am no! quite sum what it is I am sup- 
posed to do. 

Firstly, do I prinl the source code from the cover disk 
then type rt in to the assembler that I managed to gel 
hold of al the start of this tutorial, or can I load the 
source code from the coverdisk directly into my assem- 
bler? I have tried this but I just get a lot of jumbled 
letters. 

Secondly, where is the source coda located on the 
CoverDisk of June 94 issue? 

And for something completely different, the new look 
mag. My May issue came with pages 99 to 13Q upside 
down and back to front- Now that's what I call a new 
look I 

MrG Ufootf. Cheshire! 

As tor you source code problems there's no rea- 
son why you shouldn't be able to load the code 
inlo the assembler direct from disk - that's why ft's 
there. 

However, if you're printing the code first there 
could be problems. Like any programming lan- 
guage syntax is everything, and if the code is 
being reformatted prior to printing there's a good 
chance the syntax Is being altered end the subse- 
quent program corrupted. Now for a mixture of 


good, and bad news. The good news is that you 
shouldn't have any more problems with Mark 
Jackson’s tutorial - and now for the bad news - as 
it's being discontinued. 

The reason for this rather drastic step 
has bean the unreliability of Mr Jackson. 
Although we would fove to continue the 
series Mark has already missed one Issue 
entirely and has proved impossible to contact ever 
since. 

However, now for the really good news. As a 
replacement tor the assembler column, Paul 
D versa kicks off a six part Devpac tutorial. 

Unlike Mr Jackson, Paul is a professional jour- 
nalist and programmer who's already published a 
variety of programming reference manuals through 
Bruce Smith Books. 

As a result you couldn't be In safer hands. And 
better still, Paul has agreed to supply additional 
info boxes which should enable the tutorial and 
source code to be used on a variety of assemblers 
and not just Devpac, 

As for the unique design concept of your partic- 
ular copy. I'm afraid that's something of a mystery. 
If anyone else has suffered the same problem 
please get in touch - it could be time to -have a 
word with ihe printers.

Workbench worries 


I am fairly new to computing and only recently bought myself an A1 200 w4h a 
64Mb hard drive. I am extremely pleased with the machine and am feverishly 
lapping up y our Amiga DOS tutonai. 

My hard drive is partitioned into Iwo drives - Work; and DHO:, I have successfully 
dialled Workbench 3 onto irie Work: partition and am now busily installing games to 
DHO: 

Everything was working beautifully up until Iwo days ago when my Workbench 
‘ iCked gp an error requester displaying the following: 

Error villdttln) Ifnrktunch 
filar* 14142 J wild Cuiet 

The hard drive continues to whir for about another two minutes before stopping. I really 
don1 kriQw whal has happened but fear | may have broken Ihe hard drive, is there any- 
■hing I can da? 

P Whde, Cambridge 

>l"" \ 

I’m glad you are enjoying working with your Amiga and you needn't 
w M worry too much about the problem you have described as it is not per- 
manent - provided you have the right software to correct it. 

The program you really want is Quarterback Tools Deluxe from Centrai Coast 
Software. The is an incredible piece of software and has all Ihe functions you will 
ever need in order to keep your hard drive heallhy and functioning. 

TocA * — ELS tf you want more information an QTD 

you can call Meridian Distribution on 081- 
543 3500 who will only be too happy to 
help you. To avoid further problems such 
as validation errors, make sure when you 
are copying stuff to and from your hard 
drive that copying has finished before you 
eject the disk - the F.Disk light will go out 
when this has happened

r) J RAM expansion, maths co-pnoces- 
> * soc and 185Mb hard drive, I have 
successfully installed IHeimdall 2 AGA 
unto a partition named DH2. 

The game toads onto the first screen but 
when I move through to the next room I gel 
the fallowing message:

After this the screen goes blank and i gel a

Incpdentaily, I have checked with Directory

installed. 

A Bemascone, West Sussex 

r .. To test this problem t installed 
* Heimdall 2 AGA on my own 
'■■■■- A1200 and although it crashed 

my Amiga after installation the game 
played okay. The problem you describe 


Vet another mined bag of 
romputer worms comes

AMIGA COMPUTING ADVICE SERVICE 


could be a clash with your maths co- 
processor and it may be wise removing 
this and trying the game again. 

However, I find the AmigaQQS error 
report a little strange. Try checking the 
size of the midi dst file which should be 
225056 bytes. 

If ah else fails your best bet Is to send 


Elite hliteG5 out! 


I noheed in Ihe CoverDisk pages of a pre- 
^ J vious issue of Amiga Computing you 
> ware asking people rf they could send in 
their votes as lo whether a Blitz Bask: 2 
tutorial would be welcome, t have already sent my 
vole -yes! 

I have had quite a lew problems with Blrtz and 
constantly find myself coming up against prob- 
:ems 1 can't seem to gat round. The most frustrat- 
ing problem at the moment is when combining old 
gadgets with the new GadTools. They seem to 
work fine at first but crash soon after. 

The manual says you can combine the two 
together, so i can't be sure if this is an error 
in Blitz or a mistake being made by myself. If 
there's anyone who can help it would be greatly 
appreciated. 

0 Lavans, Comwafi 


— Qo you want the good news nr the bed 
i n &ws first? The good news is that the 

£"■ problem you heve described is not a 
fault of your programming skills. The bad 
news is that ft is a bug In Blitz Basic 2, 

This language seems fraught with problems, a 
sad fact considering It Is certainly Ihe best Basic 
programming language available on the Amiga. 

Acid Software are apparently having major prob- 
lems with the differences between OS 2 and OS 3 
and look likely to support only OS 3.6 AGA users 
in the near future. I'm not entirely convinced of 
these problems or that they would cause the kind 
of bugs Blitz users have had to endure. 

The GadTools stuff was a major cock-up and 
there are quite a few bugs in this library as well as 
In other areas of Blitz. The only answer to your 
immediate problem is lo avoid combining old 


i 

gadgets and the GadTools in the same win- 
dow. This means you won't be able to use 
ShapeGadgets either. 

Sorry I can't be more helpful, but only Add 
Software can clear up the bugs which doesn't 
seem very likely al present,

Installation frustration 




| have just finished writing a small pro- 
' v ** gram that allows users of Workbench 2 
•-!' and above to select a Mnd option in the 
Tools menu. 

The user selects the find menu option and a 
requester appears asking for a file lo locate The 
user types in the file name, selects I he device 
and clicks okay, at which point the program 
searches for a file with the same name as the 
one entered. 

The program works perfectly and I want to 
release it into PD with an option to register for a 
newer version. 

The program and necessary files are now on 
an auto-booting disk hut I am considering a hard 
drive installer program so that hard drive users 
can copy tha program with the minimal amount 
of fuss. 

I would really like to use the olficial 
Commodore installer bul don't know where I can 
get it and hew I should use it. Please could you 
shed some light on this program. 

J Darin. Barks 


The Commodore Installer is a wonder- 
.■'jjp. - ful program but Is fairly difficult to 
1 £■£ learn how to use. The actual program 
■ is called Installer and you can find it 
easily enough In the C directory of our 
CoverDisks, 

However, before you can use the program 
you must write a script tile using the dedicat- 
ed Installer language. This language Is not 
easy to learn and Is certainly not easy to 
debug, as it relies heavily on the use of 
parenthesis (}. 

Before you use the Installer you are 
requested to register with Commodore who 
will license you lo use the product. We had to 
do this at Amiga Computing although we 
never received a reply. With the problems 
Commodore are having at the moment 1 
would Imagine no one would pick you up tor 
using it without a license. 

The best way to learn the language, if you 
haven't got a manual, is to hack through 
other developer's Installer script files. You

} may even consider running a tutorial 
explaining the Installer language so that 
readers can become proficient with it in 
its entirety. I hope this has been of some 
help.

Ihey can shed any light on the problem. 


Surf defector 

I know this letter should raally have 
been addressed to Ezra Surf but I 
am desperate for someone to help 
with a problem - bugged Amiga games. 

I eagerly awaited the release of Beneath a 
Steel Sky from Virgin and as soon as il hil She 
store shelves I rushed eul and bought it. 
Imagine my horror when I realised il crashes 
every five minutes. This game is rendered 
totally useless to me due to ihe constant 
crashing. 

I know t can save the game, but by the lime 
I have switched my AtSQQHD off and then on 
again, booted the hard drive, located the 
BASK drawer and loaded the program my 
enthusiasm is severely denied, especially as I 
know it will crash in another five minutes. 

I also have Brian the Lion AGA which I 
have installed on my hard drive after much 
frustration, but whan I load it there is no Brian 
g raphic - he’s gone. 

I have hardly touched this game and feel 
very cheated by gangster software houses. 

I am desperate for a solution to these prob- 
lems. The software houses fobbed me off with 
a load of pre- written crap so I am writing lo 
you to see if you have any ideas. 

K Learner, Cardiff 

. v ( i’m sorry you have had such a 
poor response from Virgin and 
Psygnosis but I’m not really sur- 
prised. It surprises me that so little was 



yuu got problems too? then drop a line to Amiga Computing HduiiE? 
litunrp. lurppd IIouoe. lliilinqtuii Path, [flat tits fluid SHIEI Mllf 1 anti 
rue'll mnue fieauen and earth to help in these columns Hut scum, 
ijjp cannot refill person all q, so sane those SFIts 


mentioned about the bugs in Beneath a 
Steel Sky because on an A1ZOO the game 
is a total waste of time and money. The 
problem you described is the same prob- 
lem I had with my copy and indeed the 
System copy. 

I'm afraid there isn’t a solution, but in 
my opinion ! would be more wary of 
Virgin products in the future 

l do have some good news regarding 


Brian the Lion though. Only a few days 
ago a Mr Tim Hart sent me a disk on 
which he and his unemployed program- 
mer friend (maybe he should be writing 
the games) had written a patch for the 
missing Brian sprite. 

Tim states that the problem is due to 
Fast Ram which proves that Psygnosis 
simply couldn’t be bothered to test this 
product. 

ft you send a disk to ACAS marked 
Brian Fix, with Tim’s permission I will 
sand you a copy. My advice is, be 
wary of Psygnosis products as well as 
Virgin, 


Arm qoiralf! 


A friend of mine recently lost a lot of software 
due lo a virus that infected his disks and 

V - • damaged them. He managed to got hold of 
Virus Checker on your GoverDisk and subse- 
quently destroyed all the viruses he could at the 
expense of many commercial games. 

He can't understand how the virus infected his disks 
because ha always keeps [hem write protected. Can a 
virus infect a write protected disk? 

M McCauley. Glasgow 

There are only a few viruses I know that 
will write themselves to a copy protected 
disk. However, there are no viruses that can 
attach lo a write protected disk, therefore your 
friend can't have protected all his disks. 

I can't stress how important it is for Amiga own- 
ers to arm themselves with a suitable Virus 
Checker - John Veldthuis' being the most up-to- 
date checker there is. 

There are fewer viruses being written these days 
due to the excellent virus killer programs, but 


Amiga Computing 


there are still a lot of ancient disks floating around 
and these may contain viruses. You have been 
warned - arm yourself!

att-Logik's PageStream has come 
a. long way The desktop publish- 
ing program that started life as a 
buggy port of an Atari ST program at 
version 1.5, eventually grew into version 
2.22, a strong competitor for then-market- 
leader Professional Page. 

But Soft-Logik wasn't content to try to be 
the best on the Amiga - no, they seem to 
want to be the besl on any computer. 

The forthcoming release, PageStream 
3,0. isn't targeted at I he stagnant 
Professional Page. No, SofMoglk has its 
sights aimed at Quark XPress, the industry 
standard desktop publishing program that 
runs on the Macintosh and Windows. 

That's a lolly goal (or a small. Amiga-only 
company to sot for itself. But if the beta ver- 
sions of PageStream 3.0 iVs been working 
with lor the past tew months are any indica- 
tion, ifte full-blown program will give Amiga 
users a fool lhal will make iheir Mac- and 
Windows-using publishing friends green 
with anvy. 

PogaStroam 3.G has been delayed quite 
a bit from its initial release - I first heard 
talk of the program at Ihe World of 
Commodore Show in 1992. 

As this was written in early July, Soft- 
Logik promised they would ship the pro- 
gram in early August, so it should be avail- 
able by the time you read this, 

The initial release will be feature packed 
for sure, but (he company isn't going to slop 
there. As if a completely revamped inter 
face and hundreds of new features wasn't 
enough, Soft-Logik has some more ideas 



Help and more 


PageStream 3.0.0 includes a comprehensive help system that 
uses Commodore s AmigaGuide to provide con ten (-sensitive 
hypertext explanations of various commands. 

Everylhmq's there, from basic operation to full Aflexx com- 
mand documentation. There's also an introductory lour 
sequence, and a window that pops up when you load the pro- 
gram and offers various tips on using PageStream' s fesiures 

There are a number of other features in this lotahy rewritten 
program that are new lo PageSlream and unique to any Amiga 
esktop publishing program 

These include revision control numbering, timed saves that 
don t interrupt your work, automatic backups, undo and redo 
limited only by available memory (another lealure thai by itself is 
worth The price of admission), dot leaders, object nudging, and 
full support of the Amiga s clipboard. 



on how to mprova the program and promi 
ses a. free update with even more features 
a few months after the initial release. 

At first glance long-time PageStream 
users might not recognize the new version. 
The familiar floating toolbar is still there, as 
is Ihe page layout window. 

Bui (here's also a Quark XPress-like con- 
text-sensitive edit palette al the bottom of 
Ihe screen, a row of control gadgets al the 
lop of each editing window, and optional 
colour, font, style, macro, and page seloc- 
don palettes. 

GADGETS 

Three-dimensional elfects on the page 
outline and surrounding moveable rulers 
help set them off on ihe screen, and Amiga 
Usor’lntorfacc Style Guido -compliant gad- 
gels and windows make the program easier 
for new users lo pick up. 

The edit palette should help make you 
much more productive. It's context-sensitive 
and i(s functions change to fit the tool 
you've currently selected 

For mstance, if you select Ihe Oval draw- 
ing look the palette displays ihe X and Y 
coordinates of The centre of the oval, as 
well as Ihg width and height of the object 
Shift to Ihe text tool and the palette pre- 
sents you with gadgets for altering the cur- 
rent font, style tag. Text attributes size, 
width percentage, Tracking and leading. 

In addition, a toolbar at the top of each 
editing window lets you perform document- 
onenied commands such as Go To Page, 
Change Magnification, Undo, Redo, and 
clipboard operations. 

Mo more hunting through tho menus lor 
commonly used functions - now they're 
usually only a mouse-click away.

always been the ability to have multiple 
documents open simultaneously, each in 
their own window. In release 3 0, you can 
also open multiple windows on a single 
document. 

This comes in handy in a number of 
ways: If you need to move an article From 
page three to page 50, for example; or if 
you want to view a thumbnail of the current 
page al 33 percent magnification while you 
edit details at 200 perce nl zoom, 

When you're not working on a window 
but you plan to use it later, just hold down 
the Alt key and dick the close gadget - it 
automatically iconifies into a title-bar sized 
window that won't get in your way, 

The view inside those windows looks a 
lot batter, loo. PageStream now displays 
bitmap graphics in full colour, instead of as 
a muddy black-and-white outline. Graphics 
display in up to 25& colours if you have an 
AGA Amiga ora graphics card. 

You can open PageStream in any screen 
mode supported by your Amiga, including 
resolutions added by graphics cards such 
as Ihe Picasso II or EGS Spe-clrum; Che 
boards just have to add Cheir resolutions to 
the standard AnmgaDOS ScreenModas

requesler list. (You can also run 
s ayeSlraam on the Workbench or any 
:her Public screen.) The program locks 
lantaslic on a 1280x1024*256 Picasso 
screen on a 1 7-inch monitor, 

In addition to supporting higher resolu- 
tions, PageStream 3.0 also supports npen- 
ng screens larger than the current display, 
so you can work on large pages using the 
Amiga's ultra -speedy screen scrolling to 
move around quickly. 

VEIWING 

If your page is larger than the current 
window, holding down the right Amiga key 
and pressing the (eft mouse button turns 
the pointer into a hand that you can use to 
drag the window around until you're viewing 
the part you want to work on. (If you have a 
three-button mouse, you can use the mid- 
dle mouse button to do this,) 
in earlier versions of PageSiream (and all 
the other Amiga publishing programs), you 
treated your entire document as a sanies of 
pages. 

This was fine lor short publications that 
shared similar formats, but made long doc- 
uments that varied in format a pain to 



...but the wmit A d* Imm worth it 


ere ale - you spent much of your time just 
redesigning various pages. 

PagoStream 3.0 lets you divide your doc- 
uments into chapters, and those chapters 
into subchapters. You can have different 
format defaults at the document, chapter, 
and subchapter levels. 

Page-Stream 9.0's master pages feature 
lets you create basic page layouts - with 
objects like page numbers, headers, and 
repealing graphics - and have those lay- 
outs automatically repeat for ell pages that 
use that particular master page. 

Automatic table of contents and index 
generation macros further bring 
PageStream into the realm of professional 
publishing. 

Even tittle delails like page numbering 
are surprisingly powerful now. You can set 
the page numbering system at the docu- 
ment level, as well as whenever you insert 
a new page. 

Chapters can be numbered, you can 
defane chapter lengths whether you want 
chapters to begin on odd or even pages 
and can insert the actual page count as well 
- which isn't always the same as the page 
number.

If you're creating a magazine or newslet- 
ter, you'll appreciate the ability to view page 
spreads, Just drag two pages together In 
the page palette window, 

You can not only view the facing pages 
but also bleed objects across the pages. 
Beth horizontal and vertical spreads are 
supported. 

As I mentioned earlier, PageStream 
S.Onow supports display of both bitmap and 
structured graphics in up to 256 colours, 
Like earlier versions, PageStream 3.0 
imports a wide variety ol graphic formats, 
including BMP, EPS, GIF, IFF, MacPaint, 
PCX, Professional Draw, and TIFF- 

New to itiis version is the ability to export 
graphics as well. You could import a GIF 
picture into your document and save it out 
in PCX format, 

When placing bitmapped graphics on the 
page, you can toll PageStream to ignore 
the background, allowing you to automati- 
cally Mow text around irregularly shaped 
bitmapped pictures,

Under construction 

This preview was based on a late beta-teal version of the program, 
so (here's always the chance that some features could change at 
(he last minute and new features might be added before the 
program ships. 

The manual was in the final editing stages when we went to 
press; Soft-Logik promises it’ll be the best manual they ve done yet, 
with five tutorials, thorough topic coverage, and a complete index. 

We'll take a hands-on look at the manual and the other features 
included in the shipping version of PageStream 3.0 in an upcoming 
issue ot Amiga Computing, 


Ihem in TIFF (PC) or PICT (Mac) formats - 
PageStream can display bolh of these pre- 
view formats. 

Unlike mosl programs, PageSiream not 
only lets you display, reside, and crop 
graphics, but edil them as well. 

Outline graphics formats can be altered 
using the built-in drawing tools; bitmaps are 
sent using the builHn HolLinks protocol lo 
the bundled BME graphics editor, 

BME is greatly improved over the initial 
release which was pad of the now-included 
HotLinks Editions package. The new ver- 
sion supports colour display, has sophisti- 
cated AHexx capabilities, and does a great 
job automatically tracing bitmapped images 
and saving them in outline formats.

any plans to add support for JPEG graphic 
import and export, which is the only sane us 
omission in PageStraam's graphic support. 

If you’re going tp be creating professional 
colour output, you'll appreciate Page- 
Streams support for PAMTQNE process 
and solid colours. 

SUPPORT 

You can specify the angle and frequency 
for individual pictures and for each plate. 
PageStream supports user-definable trap- 
ping (spreads and chokes) for objects, and 
you can choose whether lo overprint or 
knockout a particular ink. 

PageStream supports Preferences print- 
ers, but includes custom drivers for Hewlett- 
Packard, Epson. Canon, and PostScript 
printers for better results. 

Dozens of PostScript Printer Description 
(PPD) files are included, so PageStream 
can taka full advantage of your printer or 


imagesetter's capabilities. 

Industry-standard PPD files are used 
so il you purchase a new model printer 
you can use the PPD file included for use 
on a PC or Macintosh, You can also out- 
put your pages as EPS files Of bitmap 
graphics. 

Along with the ability To load and convert 
PageStream 1 and 2 documents, 
PageStream 3.0 also supports loading 
documents in Professional Page 3 and 4 
formats. 

Gold Disk has suspended development 
of Amiga products, so Soft-Logik wanted 
to olfer ProPage users the option to 
upgrade lo a still-supported program, with- 
out losing access to all their old docu- 
ments, To aid in the transition, 
PageStream 3.0 includes an AmigaGuide 
help document that lists Professional 
Page commands and their PageStream 
equivalents. 


PageStream 3.0 supports the original custom 
PageStream font format, as well as Compugraphic 
and PostScript Type 1 font formats. 

Unlike Professional Page, there's no practical 
limit lo Ihe size of fonts you can usa in your docu- 
ments. (PageStream 's size limit for Compugraphic 
fonts Is 50,000 points - lhat's 57 feet tall!) 

Along with the usual text styles such as bold, 
underline, and italic, PageSiream also supports 
generation of small caps and reversed text. 

A particularly neat addition 10 version 3,0 is con- 
figurable styles. You can change the colour, thick- 
ness, and style ol an underline, for instance. 

Text characteristics are configurable as well. If 
you want to create a garish headline font with a 
three-point-thick outline and an orange-red 
gradient fill, PageStream will let you do it. 
PageStream 3.0 should ship with approximately 50 
fonts. 

Widow and orphan control lots you keep para- 
graphs from being split across columns, or make 
sure that a certain number of lines at Ihe beginning 
or end of a paragraph are kept together. 


Conditional breaks protect a section of Text from 
being broken across two columns. This is useful 
for keeping headlines from being separated from 
their articles. 

Various character-level improvements can make 
your lexi look a lot better. You can enable auto- 
matic ligatures, which can merge characters to 
create smoother-looking combinations. 

PageStream 3.0 can convert dashes and inch- 
mark quotes into en- and em-dashes and smart 
quotes automatically when you import rest. 

PageSiream supports placing text in defined 
frames on the screen, but it also lets you lype 
freeform on the page. Frames can now contain 
more than one column of text, This makes chang- 
ing page layouts much easier if you discover you 
need to increase or decrease the number of 
columns on a page. 

Just select ihe frame and change the columns 
setting - this is a lot easier than redrawing column 
guides on the screen and relinking and fallowing 
text boxes., 

Also, if you resize a frame, Ihe columns 


contained within are resized as well. Frames don't 
have lo be boxes, either - PageStream lets you 
draw any shape using its drawing tools and flow 
text into it. 

When you're editing large amounts of text you'll 
appreciate the fact that Soft-Logik is now bundling 
ihe PageLiner text editor with PageStream. It won't 
replace your word processor, but il beats trying to 
edil on Ihe page layout screen. 

The initial release of Page Stream 3.0 will import 
text from mosl popular Amiga word processors, 
including Final Writer, WardWorfh, WordPerfecl, 
and Pro Write. 

Although the formats may not be included at ini- 
tial release, Soft-Logik hopes to add support tor 
popular PC word processor formats such as 
WordPerfect 5.0 and Word for Windows, 

This will make life easier tor newsletter editors 
whose authors send in their work on PC disks. The 
word processor filters now support both reading 
and writing, so you'll be able to use PageSiream. 
lor example, to convert text (rom WordPerfect lo 
Final Writer format.

up and 
each based on 
the ability to be 
-expanded tn a logical man- 
" ner, without the need to discard 

previous purchases. 

So many mistakes are made by com- 
promising and buying a cheaper alter- 
native that ends up getting sold later. It 
is better to wait a lew months until you 
can buy the item you need, that is of 
course if you can rests! Ihe temptation 
to buy there and then. 

Another common problem area is 
monitoring. Do not buy cheap speakers 
and a cheap amp - it gives you a false 
representation of the music and subse- 
quently results in a poor mix, 

SPEAKERS 

A big studio wilt have very large 
speakers and a small cheaper pair as a 
reference, but all the main mixing will 
be run through the large speakers. 

This does not mean you have to buy 
a big pair of speakers capable of rear- 
ranging the furniture, but allow a 
decent amount of the overall budget for 
good monitoring, 

11 you can I afford the speakers you 
would like, buy a good set of head- 
phones for around CfQO to E150 lo 
cover you for Ihe short term. These will 
still be extremely uselul in the future for 
recording at night and checking the 
mix. 

My personal choice are Sennheiser 
headphones, such as the closed back 


l f 1 ihen 1 was \ 

' asked lo pro- \ 

1 ™ duce an article \ 
on selling up a home stu- \ 
die. my iniliai reaction was lo \ ^ 
wonder how much hale mail I 
would receive having sacrificed 
that sacred cow. the persona! opinions 
of every body who has bought an 
instrument or piece of equipment for 
(heir home studio, 

Eilher way here it is and no matter 
what I suggest, you should of course 
use the musicians best Iriend - ears. 
This particular slueho setup is based 
around Ihe Amiga 4000-30 in conjunc- 
tion with Bars & Pipes pro 2.5 and Lhe 
Sunrise Studio 16 hard disc recording 
system. 

However, most of the advice included 
is applicable for smaller Amiga selups. 
right down lo Ihe now humble A50CK 

The choice ol B&P pro as opposed to 
KCS 3.5 or Music X is based on my 
experience in using ail three systems. 
Of all Ihe systems I have used, and this 
includes Atari and Mac-based systems. 
B&P pro is the most powerful by far. 

If l had the space I would tell you why. 
but 1 do-n t so I won’t - here comes the 
first mailbag. 

I have put together four systems, in 
most cases a progression on the previous 




HD 250 linear 2 or Ihe HD S60 Ovalion 
2. though once again you should use 
your ears. 

I would also recommend buying a 
separate keyboard controller ralher 
than a keyboard with a sound source 
built In- Initially it may seem more 
expensive, but normally the big key- 
board synths are not the greatest con- 
trollers and if something should ever 
go wrong wilh the keyboard, you have 
lost both 

There are loads of Keyboard con- 
trollers available but at the lower end I 
would recommend the Roland PC200 
as a reliable controller for about E2D0 -

ond instrument you do. Therefore 

your first insirumenl should be a 

fairly hig one like the 

TG500 because the 

neiit purchase - 

will involve hav- 

mg to get a ' 

mixer and sub- v 

sequenlly wilt be 

fairly cosily. So \ 

the first instrument 

will need to last a 

while Mil you can 

afford the next stage. 

2. If your second instru- Vk i 

merit has no on-board \ 

effects, such as Ihe 

Proteus i or a Roland RS 

drum machine, you will 0 

also need to buy effects 

units. Once again you 

will ideally need to 

buy a good quality 

unit first time round. 

Such as a Sony 
R7 Or Yamaha 
SPX99D. JHP , 

Cheaper 
units can bn 
very useful 
but generally 
handle multi- 
pie sound 
input less well 
I h an ihe bigger units. You 
can think ol it like the CPU m 
your computer a BSfltHl pioces- 
sor can handle a lot less riaia than

however Ihis does not have after! ouch. 

Yamaha have a similar keyboard for 
about E30U which has a slightly higher 
spec either of these would br ideal. 

PLANNING 

Yet another rule is to give yourself a 
long-term plan, Create your system so 
that you can huild «t in stages. Draw a 
map ol the llnal long-let m studio 
from here you should be able to decide 
ihe order of buying I have given below 
an example of such a plan, but first 
here arc a few Ups 

l One instrument does not need a 
mixer, but the moment you buy a sec- 










MUSIC 



a 68040. 

3. When you buy a milter you may only 
envisage needing six inpuls (three 
stereo inputs) plus two band EQ and 
maybe two effects sends for that K7 or 
SPX 990. However most people, when 
setting up a studio, end up having 
between three and four instruments and 
at least two effects units. 

In theory Ihe six input mixer seems 
okay. However, if you have a good drum 
machine you will want to EQ each 
sound individually, i.e. cymbals snare, 
bass drum etc, so you wilt use the indi- 
vidual outs of the drum machine, which 
will have up to eight outputs - the same 
applies to the synths. An example is 
listed below: 

Rfl drum machine - eight outputs; 

TGSOO - six outputs; Korg Q5W - two 
outputs 

Total Inputs needed = 16 

So once again we have to plan ahead 
This will, at limes, make ihings seem

OIW. 


A, It is very important to decide what 
your musical aims arc. If you are build- 
ing the studio around songs, you will 
have to choose a mixer capable of han- 
dling tape returns to go to the Sunrise 
board or at least calculate the inputs 
needed including the Sunrise option. 

A typical mixer of this type would be a 
Mackie 8 bus mixer, which range from 16 
inputs to 32 inputs, and have eight 
record sends. These motors are expen- 
sive for the home studio, going up to 
£3999 for the 32 input desk, 

However, if you want to produce 
music thal does not need live recording, 
then perhaps something like the Yamaha 
01 Promix would be more applicable, 
giving 16 inputs with three band para- 
metric EQ, two dedicated effecls units, 
three compressor/li miters and full midi 
controlled auiomation (£1699 inc VAT). 

These prices may seem expensive. 


but if your synths are costing up to and 
around £1000 and are of excellent 
sound quality, doesnT il make sense not 
to degrade them with inferior mixers 
I hat may add noise. 

That said. Mackie do make a superb 
16 input mixer for £699 celled the 1604 
and if has an automation upgrade sup- 
ported by Bars 4 Pipes pro 2.5b, but on 
the down side the automaton does add 
a lot of noise. Anyway back to Ihe plan. 

Below is the basic plan in five stages. 
Each of these five stages is sub- 
grouped with suggested instruments, 
effect units, speaker options etc: 

1. Your Amiga, B&P pro. Sunrise Board 
and leads etc. 

2. Synth 1, headphones, controller key 
board. 

3. Synth 3 and 3, mixer, effect unit 1, 
microphone (optional), 

4. Good speakers and amp maybe 
another synth. OAT recorder (optional). 

5. Effect unit 2 maybe 3, single-ended 
noise reduction, graphic EQ 

In turn this should be accompanied 
by a diagramatic of the current section, 
with the Inclusion of the previous 
stages and a financial plan and budget 
of each section. 

It is important to read as many 
reviews as possible to give you a gen- 
eral idea of what to look for. However, 
reviewers do not always get it right, so 
at the end of the day trust your ears. 


Stage tiuo - part three of the plan 


impossible, bul if you go in blindfolded 
you will simply have to sell some of 
your equipment al a large loss, making 
the overall plan all the more difficult to 
achieve. 

As mixes gel bigger EQ is needed 
more and more to make different bits 
stand out against olher bits, I recom- 
mend a minimum of three band EQ ide- 
ally, with mid sweeps {what the hell is a 
mid sweep I here you cry, well believe 
me If I had the space 1 would explain it. 
however all I can say is you neod if - 
trust me).

wvrprHfaQly «eur*i*. 


This Is the really heavy bit - lots of cash needed here. You should choose one of 
the mixers highlighted below, along with one of the effect units listed. 

I have also put down a few suggestions on second synth modules. You could 
of course pick an instrument from ihe list in stage one. However, try to buy a dif- 
ferent make of instrument than the one purchased in the earlier stage. 

Individual makes tend to have their own sound, i.e. most musicians can tell an 
EMU Proteus sound or a Roland sound- 

You may wonder why I recommend only one low -cost microphone. Well ds 
simply because it stands out as particularly good value against the rest, though 
olhers, such as the Shure 5M57/SM5B, might suit you better for stage work 

Mackie 1202 4 Mackie 1604: these mixers are extremely good value and will fit 
most peoples needs. They are true sludio quality and in the case of Ihe 1604 It 
offers 16 line inputs, three band EQ, six studio quality balanced XLR micro- 
phone inputs and a great multi-functional aux effects system. 

The Mackie 1604 has a good EQ but no mid sweeps - however, 1 would still 
highly recommend it. 

Price: Around £500 for the 1202 and £899 for the 1604. 

Mackie 8 bus series; this mixer would be the mixer of choice - however, its cosi 
may be too prohibitive tor most home studios. That said, its specification is 
astounding in a mixer of this price. 

Specification: between 16 and 32 micfffne inputs, lour band EQ with Iwc mid 
sweeps, six effecls sends and 12 returns, optional full meter bridge, stunning 
noise specification, up to 32 tape returns and a mix B oplion which doubles Ihe 
number if inputs on mix down. 

The desk also features full in-place solo and individual channel mules, along wiiti 
really smooth faders and of course an eight channel recording bus - stunning. 

Price: 16 - 6 - 2 = £1 600 approx; 24 - 8 - 2 = £2400 approx; 

32 - 8 - 2 = £3500 approx.

jlputs; two multi effects units built in. 
ice: RRP £1099, can be purchased for 
i $ low as £799. 

iniment: Great as a first instrument 
>d as part of a bigger set up. As with 
most instruments rt will take a while to 
arn bow to use, but with 64 note 
olyphony it should enable you to put 
■■gether multi-timbral pieces without 
nmng out of notes. 

<org 05W Specification: 32 note 
olyphony; 16 part mutti-timbral; two 
ulputs; two multi effects units built in. 
3 rice: RRP £599, 

omnnEnb Excellent sounding half rack 
mil with really big sounds. However, 
he 05w has only two outputs which 
Quid be a bil limiting in the long-term, 
[hough as part of a bigger system 
would not cause too many problems. 
The 32 note polyphony may be a little 
miting for those bigger pieces. In 
oir»e ways I prefer the sound of ihis 
unit to the TG5D0, but the Yamaha 


instrument gets ahead on multi-timbral- 
ity and the six Outputs and Ihe sounds 
ore still very good, 

Proteus F X Specification: 22 note 
polyphony; 16 part multi-limbral; two 
outputs; two multi effects units built in. 
Price: £500 

Commcni: Wow the proteus - still here, 
still cool. This new version, updated 
with inbuilt special effects and sounds 
from the Proteus 2, has about Ihe best 
sound samples around - ideal for reaf 
instrument sounds, though it includes 
synlh typo sounds as well. 

In a big multi-timbral setup it is a fan- 
tastic asset, offering a certain realism 
to the mix. However, the proteus has a 
unique sound and may be a little easier 
to recognise when its stand alone. 

This said, I have a Proteus 1 & 2 as 
part of my set up and would highly rec- 
ommend It, They are also the easiest 
synth modules to program I have ever 
used. 

Overall stage one comment; This Sys- 
tem is very basic, but gives you a good 
base on which to build your studio. 
There are, of course, other instruments 
worth considering such as the Roland 
Sound Canvas and Yamaha TG300. 
{Also included in this set up Is the 
Roland RC200 and Sonnhoiser HD 560 
Ovation 2 headphones). 

Stage one budget {excluding Amiga 
S&P pro and Sunrise Studio 16 & MIDI 
porl & P-1IOI leads) Includes one sound 
module, a controller keyboard and 
headphones, totalling around £1 1 10,

Yamaha Promix 01: for the musician who does not need the live 
recording flexability of the Mackie, Ihis mixer represents absolute 
slate-of-the-ari mixing at an incredibly low price. 

I would go as far as to say this is a revolutionary mixer lhal is 
going to change 
Ihe face of home 
studios for ever. 

An absolute must 
lor anybody who 
wants total midi 
control over all 
mixing parameters 
On mix down. 


Specification: 16 
channel inputs with 
six balanced micro- 
phone inputs, full 
digital internal pro- 
cessing and 1 05 db UMcktm jM-w-A ffi# parted 
of headroom to 

work in. 36-bit three band parametric EQ. 

Four effects sends built In, two ol which arc hard wired to two SPX 
990 quality effects units all working in full 24-bit. Three dynamics 
processors built in. Full motorised faders on each channel. 

A digital output lor masiering to DAT. All inputs use 20-bit A to D 
converters with 64 times over sampling and 20-bit eight times over 
sampling on the way out - in a word gobsmacking. 

Price: £1899. 



Sony R7 reverb unit: opinions on reverbs vary dramatically but Ihe Sony R7 really 
is an excellent unit. Thrs reverb is mcradibly smooth and powerful and is my first rec- 
ommendation for a major reverb. 

Tho Sony R7 has been overlooked by many people in preference for more estab- 
lished manufacturers in special effects, such as Yamaha and Lexicon, However, 
having used rt fairfy extensively in the last year, i would say flat it is quieter and 
more flexible than other similar-priced unils. 

Price: £900 approx. 

Lexicon LXP15: a classic reverb sound at a reasonable price. Also included in this 
range is Ihe LXP1 . the predecessor lo the LXP15 Either of these would be a good 
choice, Ihough they are both nqisiar lhan the Sony. 

Pace: Approx £799 for Ihe LXP15; approx £399 for the LXP1 . 

Cheaper alternatives- could include Ihe Boss SE7G or perhaps the Alesis range of 
reverbs, including the classic Quadraverb. 

Microphones: well actually microphone, because I will only recommend one, the 
AKG Cl 000s, While (here are many microphones that are better, such as the Beyer 
MC74Q, the AKG Cl 000 has the most accurate sound of any microphone under 
£600 and subsequently has lo be the overall microphone of choice, JT is great for 
vocals, speech, and even acoustic Instruments 
Pace: £229 RHP. 

Other instruments worthy of recommendation are the Alesis Quadrasynth, Korg 
X3R, Roland R3 drum machine and the Ultra Proteus, all of which I do not have 
space fo write about. 

Price: Wavestatarr SR approx £990; Roland R& approx £499.

Choosing an amp and speakers is 
always a difficult thing - should I buy a 
Quad, or should il be a Yamaha or per- 
haps a Carver, Weil hem goes another 
sacred cow. 

My choice of amp is based around 
two factors. Firstly, the amp does not 
need to be extraordinarily powerful tor 
the home studio and secondly, it does 
need to be flexible and accurate in 
sound. 

For this reason I have chosen the 
Audiolab 800D A amplifier. It of course 
can lit-:- used as part of a HiFi sol up, 
but more imporlanlly it gives a superb 
sonic performance in the home studio 
set up - incredibly accurate, 

For the speakers 1 would choose the 
Alesis Monitor One, a great sound at a 
good price point and they are very welt 
made. 

While these would bo my choice for 
a home studio, the more ambitious stu- 
dio might look towards ihe Acoustic 
Energy AE1, or the low end Gcnelec 
speakers. 

1 would not on the other hand recom- 
mend Yamaha MStOs. They might be 
alright as secondary speakers, but 
they are unsuitable for main monitor- 
ing. 


Amplifier and 
speakers 


Alesis Monitor Ona- price: approx £399 
a pair. 

Audiolab 800D A amplifier - price appro 

E4&D 

As for any further instruments, I wouli 
recommend any Of ihe sound modules 
have mentioned earlier. DAT players or 
the other hand fall into two categories - 
those with 5CMS (Serial Copy 
Management System), these are general 
1y designed for the home market, ant 
those without QCMS. that are primaril 
designed lor the pro market. 

If you read a lot of HiFi magazines 
your opinion might be that DAT is nc 
that great - these magazines even sug 
geat that it is not as good as CD - wrong 
DAT is used for mastering most of th- 
CDs you hear today, so that scupper: 
that argument, The only thing wrong will 
DAT is that it will show up any hiss in the 
audio chain, as it is inherently silent. 

My choice would be to go tor a Son*, 
portable DAT iike the TCD DU of D7, i'

Sony TCD D3 - price: £499 

As for part five of the plan, this really is 
'he luxury department. Once again I 
would choose one of the effects men- 
'ioned earlier, but for critical equipment 
vtill needed, 3 would have to recommend 
she following items - Symetrix 511 A or 
Drawmer DF320 Noise Reduction Units 
Boih of these units are absolutely 
essential finishing touches to the home 
Studio. They are both single-ended 
noise reduction systems and subse- 
quently do not need any decoding, 
unlike Dolby A,B.C and S noise reduc- 
tion systems. 

Both are fairly easy to use and make a 
massive difference to the finished mix, 
p rice: between £300 and £450 

Atals MEQ 230 due] 30 band EQ. 

Qflen. even with the best ot equipment 
and control rooms. EG is still needed and 
can be great for adding that extra bit of 
punch and sparkle. As with the noise 


reduction units. I would highly recom- 
mend one of These units lo be used at the 
end of the recording chain, just before the 
DAT player, 

Well that's it than - my recommendation 
for the perfect home studio (if there is 
such a thing). As with ail these items, per- 
sonal preferences will play a parr in your 
buying decisions, but hopefully this article 
will serve as a guideline and, it nothing 
else, get you thinking. 

No one person's view should be treated 
as gospel, so try out these suggestions 
and don't listen too much to the salesmen. 
Finally, whatever you do, remember to 
have fun, because al the end of the day. 
that is what II Is all about. 

All prices are based on magaiine prices 
and not necessarily on RRPs. 

All items should be found in most good 
music Shops around the country. Bars & 
Pipes pro 2,5 and the Sunrise AD516 & 
Studio 16 hard disk recording system are 
available through Premier Vision on 071- 
721 7050. 

For a limited time only, the Sunrise 
Board will be offered al £999 Inc VAT - its 
RRP is £1299. Bars & Pipes Pro 2-5 can be 
purchased at £199 inc VAT - its RRP is

fs a regular and unfortunate busi- 
ness practice - glossing over the 
truth. On the edge of ban kru ploy? 
'Never mind, just a setback, sales are 
tfcellent, we've achieved record figures 
•us year,™ 

White viewing sales figures publicly 
trough rose-tinted spectacles is exception- 
ally important for the PR success of any 
ndustry, there's always one group of pen* 
: 9 who ere left behind in the aftermath of a 
'a led company, licking (heir wounds and 
wondering what can be learnt from the 
ei pensive experience. 

This group, a sometimes overlooked and 
-"•de rest! mated clan of different genders, 
colours and creeds, are the buying public. 
B might a CD32 recently? Foaling a little 
worried that your hard earned cash might 
■ 3 v e been more useful flushed down the 
toilet? 

When any company sinks into financial 
obscurity, it has a knock-on effect through- 
out the industry - customers lose faith and 
decide that the original nagging doubts 
about buying a pricy piece cl hardware 
were well placed after all. Subsequently, 
they don't want lo invest any more and 
everyone loses out. 

Gut in Commodore's case, what If you're 
a potential buyer of a 1200 and a CD drive - 
is it really a wise move to buy one oflhe 
company's machine? 

What about existing owners? Have they 
really waded their money on a computer 
with no future? The Devil's Advocale 
winged its way down to Ihe company's 
headquarters to talk to the UK's managing 
director, David Pleasance. 



David Pfaaianctr WO of Commodore UK, fhft 
flWflfll pprlmift “IV* fc«n ffircjmjfi IMW ftad 
frjnfls fff wail ■■ goad and for HW, IflJi tS A 
imall hsatut ~ ft'* rrol A itlj^or setback" 



With lammodare filing for 
bankrupts. euergone is wondering 
what wifi happen to the owe great 
lompang. ffdam Phillips talks to 
Bauid Pleasance about the 
past, present and future 

Q After the recent collapse of 
Commodore, can 1200 and CD32 own- 
ers feel confident in buying future 
Amiga equipment and receiving full 
support from the manufacturers? 

A ! don ‘I think support is an issue because 
we do have very good arrangements, par- 
ticularly with the likes of ICL who are doing 
a iremendous job of supporting our 
products. 

As we stand at the moment, it is our 
belief lhal Commodore will be purchased 


as a going concern. Therefore, if anything, 
the prospects lor Commodore will be infi- 
nitely better than they have been for quite 
some time. 

Q What do you feel brought about the 
downfall of Commodore? 

A I believe we should never have gone into 
the DOS market and the decision lo get out 
of it came after we had had two years of 
really losing money I think we needed to 
have a more logical and coherent product 
development strategy than we had. 

By that I mean the launching of products 
like the 500+ and 600 virtually on top of 
each other were not good decisions. 1 think 
it was The general direction of Ihe company 
and also the investment made in trying to 
enter markets that were not ideal tor 
Commodore - these have all contributed to 
the position where Commodore losi a lot of 
money, 

Q Do you feel that Commodore UK 
played a part in the company's financial 
demise? 

A The UK markat for Commodore has 
been a profitable operation for several 
years now - in fact, one of the most buoy- 
ant markets for Commodore. □ unrig peri- 
ods of last year and six months of the year 
before, the UK branch was Ihe biggest con- 
tributor to Commodore wo rid -wide. 

So, in terms ol us playing a part, I'd say 
definitely not, 

Q What are your plans now for 
Commodore UK? 

A As far as I am concerned, it’s business 
as usual, I’ve had the fortune of being with 
Commodore for virtually 11 years now and 
I’ve boon through some bad limes as well 
as good times, I see Ihis as a small hiatus - 
it's not a major setback. 1 genuinely believe

SEPTEMBER 1994 













interview 


that si Commodore is purchased il will be 
the besl thing far Ihe company, because 
there is no doubt that we are now signifi- 
cantly leaner and meaner lhan ever before. 

If the right partners are involved in 
Commodore and are prepared to listen ta 
the people in the subsidiaries that have sun 
vived. Ihen I think our opportunities and 
future prospects are particularly bright. 

My personal belief is that the UK compa- 
ny is currently in the best shape it's been in 
for many years. 1 think we are poised for a 
tremendous Christmas period and it really 
all depends on getting a company to buy 
Commodore as a going concern and to 
enhance Che manufacturing facility. 

Grvce that happens, I will be very confi- 
dent. As far as the personal situation is 
concerned, at this moment in time - 
foolishly or otherwise - I’m not looking for 
other work, 

Q Who are the potential buyers for 
Commodore? 

A There are three or four serious cen- 
to ndars. My belief is that one of those is a 
dear favounte and it could even be in the 
next 40 hours or so. I can’t possibty com- 
ment on who it might be - it’s very unfair to 
any potential purchaser to speculate 
because <1 can definitely have an adverse 
etfecl on any negotiations. 

The last thing I want to do is upset any 
opportunity for this company to be bought 
which will therefore secure thB jobs for the 
people who work here. 

Q Who would you like to see buying 
Commodore ideally? 

A Me, I can’t afford it, but I would love to 
be able to run il though. Ideally, I'd like to 
see a company that is in the consumer 
electronics business but not in our marker 
Ons that has good manufacturing facilities, 
good R&D and that has some chan 
neis to market. 

I think the benefits that any 
company would get from the 
purchase ol Commodore 
are (a) adding a whole 
new range Of producls to 
Iheir portfolio and (b) 
taking advantage of 
whal is probably the 
best distribution chan- 
nel in Europe. 

Take the UK alone. If 
you walk down Slough 
High Slreel - that's len 
minutes from here - you'll 
find Commodore products in 
30 shops. That's the kind of 
marriage i would be looking for in 
terms of a buyer of tha company. 
However, that’s the ideal position and 
we may not always gel our ideal situation. 

I really believe Ihe Amiga technology is 
lar too good and far too well supported to 
be lost over the next few weeks because of 
a company that's gol itself inlo financial 
trouble.

Q If there is a buyer In the pipeline, 
how long before 12DQs and 4000s are 
back in production? 

A They would get back into production 
very quickly. I would envisage us getting 
supplies in time lor the September season, 
There is a pool of products available to the 
subsidiaries at the moment - you’ve got 
Commodore UK, Germany, Italy and 
Scandinavia. Between all of us, we’re look- 
ing after all the European cou nines. 

We also have a pool of products avail- 
able and are selling as and when we need 
them. My belief is that we can last until 
September when new product supplies 
arrive and, ai present, we're taking advan- 
tage ot Ihe fact that this is the quiel period. 

1 think we'll be okay... 

Q How do you feel about the new 1 200 
CD Drive? There have been rumours 
that you're not entirely happy with the 
lack of FMV 

A While I'm still not happy about the lack 
of FMV. il's something which is technically 
not possible to do. The PCG on the 1200 
doesn't have the gate array that's on ihe 
CD32 PCB, so there is no way of running 
full motion video. My concern has always 
been that while, at 
present, most 1200 
owners will say "it 
doesn’t matter about 
full motion video", 1 
believe that as soon as 
the first lully-inre mo- 
tive game is released 
that uses FMV 1 ihe 
owners of the CD1200 will lhan say “hey, 
this doesn’t work, we're not happy" 

Q Do you feel that FlViV-s pacific game 
development will be hampered because 
of the GDI 200? Why develop for FMV 
which is a relatively small market at the 
moment when you can develop for both 
the CD32 and CD12O0? 

A I agree with whal you're saying except 
wo already know what is under develop- 
ment. I’m certain some companies are 



already starting to port their PC develop 
ment on lo CD32 because, unlike 
mosi Amigas, Ihe machine was designee 
to be able to lake the graphics from 
a PC and display it in the chunky plana 1 I 
mode. 

These products under development will 
become more and more available, but 1 
guess, in some ways, it could be per- 
ceived* a drawback lo the developers thai 
the CD1200 doesn’t support full motion 
video, 

I think they will realise that the CD32 is 
a big market in its own right and FMV, 
even without the interactive games con- 
tent. is going to be a huge market. 

It's going to be a bigger market lhan the 
games market anyway - we believe very 
strongly that music video CDs will be an 
enormous success, 

Q Finally, are there any promises 
you’d like to make to existing 
Commodore machine owners? 

A The only thing we can say to them is 
that we are totally aware of the develop- 
ment schedule that the software publish- 
ers are currently undertaking. Il’s pretty 
extansive - between now and September, 
there will be 60 more titles absolutely 
guaranteed. 

This is not just h ear-say like when we 
first launched ihe CD32. We’ve actually 
seen work in progress and there are defi- 
nitely 60 titles coming Out plus an addition- 
al 40-Odd FMV titles, 

From these products which have been 
developed specifically for the CD. 
there are some super 1200 products 
coming as a direct derivative. I guess the 
only promise I can make is lhat the 
software support has in no way abated 
and I don’t see it abating for quite some 
time yet 

Thank you for your time.

PROGRAMMING 


-Hi 


H there h&we been few 
lo bring a powerful yet 
uage to the Amiga - the 
mast widely known being Amos, But up 
until now they alt seemed lo have good 
poinls and plenty of bad points, such as not 
supporting Workbench windows. 

Thankfully there is a new competitor on 
the scene and although the developers 
behind il are not widely known, this new 
contender has caused such a stir to (he 
extent of being accepled world-wide by 
Amiga users with outlets in America. 
Europe and Australia. 

Because of this, and your response lo 
last issue's insert, we are going io bring you 
as much support for Blitz Basic 2 as we can 
muster, and at tha same time spread a little 
light on the rather incoherent yet necessary 
manuals, 

BASICS 

Throughout this tutorial I will be working 
on the assumption that you know how to 
load up Blitz, load and save programs writ- 
ten in Blitz and compile them. If you are 
unsure about any of these or have prob- 
lems following this tutorial then please write 
in. 

In this first tutorial I will go through the 
basics of programming the Workbench 
screen, addressing the subject of screens, 
windows, gadgets, menus and events. 

The principal behind (he Workbench sys- 
tem is a complex system of libraries, mes- 
sages, ports, packets and devices. Nearly 
everything you program that makes use of 
screens, windows, menus or gadgets will In 
some way interact with ihts system, 

Thankfully Blitz handles all but the simple 
things for you, thus allowing you lo concen- 
trate on making your program professional 
and worthwhile. Lets open a window in our 
first program (please refer to ihe Ref 
Manual! if you are unsure to the syntax or 
use of any of the commands):

then choose the CormpHe/Run option from

Hey presto? Your window 'will appear on 
the Workbench screen and wilt slay I here 
until you click the left mouse button on the 
close gadget! 

The first seven commands set up our 
program to work in the Workbench screen 
without any interference. It does this by 
pulling the Workbench screen lo the front of 
ihe display and assigns it with a screen 
object number (see Chapter 7 of your User 
Guide about objects). 

After this we make sure that our window 
will appear on the Workbench screen by 
Selling our program lo use it (note how we

address the relevant screen with its objec 
number we gave it earlier!). We are non 
ready to open our window (Bee your Ref 
Manual P.25-1 lor the synlax!),. 

Notice that in the flags parameter we 
have pul: S1C0QI$9 The T operator i? 
known as The logical 'AND' operator anc 
basically acts m the same way as adding 
the two values together, i.e.. SlMOISG = 
$1 008. All the flags are listed in your Re - 
Manual on P 25-2 and you can ‘AND' as 
many as you like, 

After the opening ol our window, we then 
needed to know when the user usee 
the close gadget so that we could close 
the window and terminate the program 
We can determine whether or not the user 
has closed our window hy the use of 
events. 

EVENTS 

Events are basically messages sent from 
Workbench when a user does something lo 
interact with a program, The 'WaitEvenf 
command allows us to wait until 
Workbench has something to report to us 
(fsIB: it is important to remember that the 
value returned from Workbench through 
'WaitEvenf is a long’ value which is why 
we have lo declare ev' as 'ev.IT). 

From looking at the event codes table in 
the Flat Manual (P.25-5), we can See that 
$200 ts returned when fhe user has closed 
a window. Therefore we continue looping 
until $200 is ratumsd. alter which we can 
Close our wmdaw and terminate our 
program? 

Now that we can open and close a win- 
dow let's add some interaction to our pro- 
gram - lets do an adding program. 

Again we will tirai need to set-up our pro- 
gram to run in Workbench and we will also 
want a window. So let's use the above 
code and add the extra code below to han- 
dle all our input and output

This time we cannot accurately find out if 
the user has used the close gadget on our 
window or no!. This is because the com- 
mand 'EditS' holds up your program while 
we are getting an input from the user. 

During this time all we can do is wail until 
the user has hit return, therefore we have 
no way of testing whether the user has hit 



our close gadget. That's why we also didn't 
need to pul a close gadget on our window 
(represented by SB). 

As you probably know, the above pro- 
gram is a simple adding program which 
continuously picks up two values from the 
user and then prints out tha sum until the 
user enters a ‘q\ 

The first two commands simply dear the

message to the user and wail for the user 
to put In ihe first value. 

If you are unsure as to the difference of 
the 'N Print* and ‘Print’ commands, the 
*N Print* does the same as a ‘Print’ but 
returns the cursor to the beginning of the 
next line after printing. 

Notice Thai in the Ref Manual there are 
two 'Edit 1 commands, and that the normal 
‘Edit* command is ideal for only accepting 
numbers. We haven't used this because we 
stilt need lo check whether the user wishes 
to quit. 

it is easy to do this by obtaining their 
input in a siring formal ('Edit®’). Check 
whether the user wishes to quit - exit it the 
user does - and then, If it is a value, con- 
vert it to a number and continue with the 
sum. This is why ws have two sals of vari- 
ables to hold both the strings and the 
numbers. 

The 'Forever' in the loop does just as il 
says - repeals the loop forever! 

It's time lo wrap up this first tutorial But 
remember, the only way you are ever 
going to be a competent programmer is to 
practice, so try playing around with the 
window - even try opening two or 
three windows (don't forget lo close 
them al!F). 

Look out for the next issue where I will 
explain opening ydur own screen and menu 
programmfng to add that professional feel 
to your programs,

R brief description 


The screen - the scre&n is the very found alien oi the 
Workbench display. It acts like Ihe draw ng board for air your 
visible operations which the user will see. The screen is used 
to display all your windows and gadgets, without which there 
would he no display. 

Unfortunately screens are not very flexible. They can only 
be pushed to the back of the display* but are nonetheless 
very important,, 

Blitz allows you to make one of three choices when pro- 
gramming screens - use Ihe Workbench screen, open your 
own screen or grab someone eise's. 

Once you have done one of these you will have a screen 
number assigned to that screen which can then be used to 
reference il tor your various operations. 

Tfie window - although you can use a screen to do ell your 
input and output on. the window is the much preferred friend 
of the system programmer, This is because it allows for a 
more stylish and easy-to-use display, allowing tor the use of 
gadgets and menus. 

The window, as the name suggests, is like an opening, giv- 
ing Ihe user a view. Of what? Well, whatever the programmer 
wishes the user to see! Sut unlike the screen, the window is 
completely flexible and with the right programming it can be 
re-sized, moved around, pulled to the front and pushed to ihe 
back. They can now even display pictures inside themselves 
(As long as you have OS 2,00 tw higher!}. 

Just like screens, each window has their own unique 


number and because of this you are allowed to open more 
lhan one window on any one screen, addressing each one by 
its identifying number, 

The gadget - gadgets are the next simplest inpyt/cutput from 
basic text input. They can display messages, hold text strings 
or numbers, be used as scroll bars, even cycle through a list 
of different options! 

But there is a limitation of using gadgels - they can only 
be displayed from wrthin windows, This is because the oper- 
ating system was designed lo handle them this way, so you 
can have multiple windows open and find out which gadget 
was hil m which window, thus allowing for more flexible and 
open programming. 

Gadgets also have their own unique identifying numbers 
so that you can determine at any time whether or not a 
specific gadget was used. 

The menu - menus are another way of obtaining interaction 
wilh the user. They can sometimes be preferred to 
gadgets due lo their simple orderly composure, but can also 
be used in coni unction with gadgets to produce flexible 
applications. 

When programming menus Ihe+e is generally one purpose 
for which to use them, and that is lo offer the user a selection 
of options. Thankfully the system will handle most of Ihe inter- 
ad ion, allowing us to pick up the users choice and crack on 
with the request.

GRAPHICS 


Seeing 





R Si-bit graphics card 
compatible with all applications? 
Franh fiord grasps his specs - 
and peers into Retina III- 


1 was with great delight that 1 
opened the parcel containing my 
review Ftelina BLT Z3. I though! 
"Great! Zorro I If performance, 4MB Display 
RAM and Workbench emulation." 

Now, I already know a bit about 
Workbench emulation courtesy ot my 
D cassoll card, where selling a screenmode 
an absolute breeze Picasso creates new 
standard Intuition screenmodes that can 
be sel in any Screen mode requester, so, 
is you can see, I was- hoping ihat 




Retina's would be as tran spa root and easy 
to set up, 

i opened the box that Retina came in and 
'■ eady i was frowning. MacroSystems 
"ave a deserved good reputation for creat- 
ing solid hardware, vis VLab and I had 
' ::ped Ihat this was going to bo no excep- 
' on. I have to say I was disappointed. 

First off, Ihe Retina isn't a full length card 
- t's |us( as long as it has to be to plug into 
“ho Zorro slot. I would much rather have 
seen a full-length card that was easier to 
. jg in, because it was guided in at both the 
"ent and back of my machine instead ol 
" ;bbling around as I pushed il in. 

MONITOR 

Next. I know that the original Relina only 
"ad one monitor output port on it, so if you 
wanted to see Amiga screens you had to 
jt two monitors Side-by-side, but I had 
r eard that the Retina Z3 was going to be 
equipped wi|h two instead of the single port 
I lound (most of the other RTG graphics 
: vds on the markei have a monitor input 
Wft to pro vida a passdhrough of the slan- 
cird Amiga video signal when the card is 
ot being used). 

i had also heard thal video outpul was to 
included as standard, and looking at the 
:oard it seemed that my suspicions were 
:znfirmed as there were two video ports, 
ne composite and one Y/C, on the back of 
the board. 

But it turns out that To use them you are 
q uired to buy an extra PAL encoder card 
w h ich fits onlo the Reiina board, So why 
.iher going to Ihe expense or putting ports 
•- Ho the card that potentially few people are 
going to make use of? 

My third initial complaint concerns the 
ither skimpy manual thal is provided, 
'.'aero Systems are wefl-known for writing 
Tense, harcMo -under si and manuals, bul 
*> ey usually have some depth to them. 

The Retina manual is only 43 pages long. 

■ doesn't ge into enough detail on a lot ol 
bios, and leaves out any details whalso- 
iver about I he rather dire paint package 


included called VDPaini. There are no 
warnings in the manual about the Retina Z3 
only working in machines equipped wilh 
ZorroMI slots flhs 3000 and 4000 
series) and as I haven't got a machine with. 
Zorroll slots to check if in, 1 couldn't find puf 
d it automatically detected the difference 
between Zorroll and Zorro 1 1 1 slots 
and changed its method of working 
accordingly. 

Retina's method of relargeifing 
Workbench is not exactly friendly, Firstly, 
there is a program called Reiina- 
ScroenMade which opens a window show- 
ing a whole load ol different monitors, I 
would say you are fairfy likely to find 5 your 
monitor, or at leasl one very like it, men- 
tioned in fhe I is!, 

Once you have selecled the monitor you 
own, a list of screen "groups" appears on 
Ihe right-hand side ol the window 
These groups can be expanded to show all 
Che various screen modes ccmiained 
therein. 

Thanks lo the execrable manual, I am 
still not overly sure what relevance these 
different screen modes actually have in the 
running of the Workbench emulation, as 



Spot crypt rc intariaiflJ 



RTG is an acronym for R&Targettable 
Graphics, a mythic Commodore standard for 
incorporating other people's graphics cards 
into the Amiga system 
The idea is that a user can plug a graphics 
card inlo the machine and then use all Ihe 
soflware on Ihat card as though it were 
norma! Amiga graphics. 

To be able to do this several things need 
to happen first. One is that software design- 
ers have to obey the rules when il comes to 
creating the interlaces for fh sir programs. 

Requesters and windows should be fonl- 
sensitive and programs should offer the user 
a screenmode requester lo choose the mode 
most suitable for his or her needs. 

The other is ihat Commodore needs to 
define an RTG standard so Ihat the software 
and hardware developers have something lo 
aim for instead of all Ihe cortf lief ing systems 
that ere currently in use, 


they are ail also listed in the program called 
RelinaEmu which you run next. 

Retina Emu is really the heart and soul of 
Retina’s RTG effort. When you run a pro- 
gram you haven’t run since you got fhe 
Retina, it makes a nole of il in its fiat. You 
can Ihen pick that program's name from the 
fist and choose a Retina screen mode to 
run it under. 

Few programs seem to mind this rather 
cavalier attitude lo their screens, but pro- 
grams like VistaPro and DelUxePaint, thal 
have custom interfaces rather than sticking 
to using proper intuition screens (naughty!), 
don'i really like promotion at all. 

Ones you are satisfied thal all the normal

software you (end to run works OK under 
Retina's aegis, you start to want to play 
about a bit with the programs that come 
with Retina. 

There’s a whole bundle of stuff to look at. 
First up is Ihe ralher cryptic MakeRACE 
program. IT has a massive six and a half 
pages of manual devoted to It and is an 
animation creation tool. 

It can create anims in S-, 16' or 24-bil 
and will automatically dither your frames 
down to the required number of colours 
using the Floyd-Steinberg technique. 

METHODS 

Personally, I would rather have seen it 
use the Random method as used in 
ADPro, which stays in the same place 
every frame giving you less deltas than 
Floyd-$leinbeTg, 

As with the rest ol Retina's software. 
MakeRACE seems over-complex, but its 
complexity ensures (hat you will be able to 
create the basi possible animations with it 

Anims lhat are created with MakeRACE 
can also have a soundtrack applied to them 
which can be in 85VX format or 
MacroSy stem's own Toccata or MaesiroPro 
formats for 16-bit sound quality. 

Once ihe animation has been created (a 
rather drawn-out process even on a 4000) 
you will need to load one of RACE'S ancil- 
lary programs, PlayRACE or CopyRAGE. 

PiayRACE plays back the animation from 


There is a wide range of graphics cards avail- 
able fc-r the Amiga, from AV^eo and DCTV 
Uiiough lo Harlequin and G2'& Imsgica sys- 
tem, but probably of most interest are the so- 
called RTG cards. 

There are three main offerings; the Re'ina 
in Zorroil and Zorrolll versions, Picasso ana 
the wide variety of EGS hoards i have played 
wilh them all in my lime and I currently own a 
Picassoll card, 

The reasons for my purchase were lhat 
Retina's system for RTG was unwieldy and 
(unnecessarily i complex and ! didn't fixe the 
fact that EGS seemed !o be happier replacing 
Intuition rather fhan complementing it, 

Certainly there are boards that give the 
extra speed that Zorrolll confers, and some 
have 4MB of display RAM to allow you higher 
resolutions, but none is as easy So configure 
as Picasso and none is as transparent as 
Picasso when in everyday use. 



RAM and Copy RACE does the same bul 
from bard disk. 

Next up is ArtCoS Jr. which is a sort-of 
patina version of FRED the frame editor 
that comes wifh ADPro, 

No graphics card worth its salt is wfthoul 
soma sort of picture viewer and Retina is no 
exception, if you own a copy of 
ImageMasier or ADPro Ihe mslalter will load 
viewers for those programs onto your hard 
disk. 

However, there is also a standalone tile 
viewer lhat, lhanks lo Retina's multipic.- 
library (a sort of Universal loader used by 
all the Retina software), will show files In a 
wide range of formats including all the IFF 
variants, VLab (obviously!), BMP and JPEG 
amongsl others, 

Li has an Appwindow interface allowing 
you to Just drag and drop picture icons onto 
its window to show them. It can also be run 
from Ihe Shell and thus is suitable for inte- 
gration inlo file managers liks Directory 
Opus or DiskMaster2, 


What else 
is out 
there? 


TWEAKING 

In case you weren't confused enough by 
RetinaScreenMode and RetinaEmu, we 
now coma to a little utility called 
DefineMonitor that allows you to tweak the 
screenmodes so that they Rl nicely on your 
monitor. 

Qnce you have messed around with 
them all, you can then append your newly- 
tweaked list to the original list, resulting in 
twice as many screanmodes to choose 
from! 

To finish off the complement of pro- 
grams, there is a Retina screen blanker lhat 
doesnT do anything interesting Ilka putting

all 16.7 million colours on the screen Dn#| 
after the other, it just shows a black scree* I 
which is obviously the best way to keep I 
your monitor from burning out - but it is » 
bit boring. 

Retina's Workbench emulation is actuary 
outstandingly fast once you get past 
hassle of setting il all up. Even running t 
256-colou.r Workbench at 1024 x 768 wafl 
zippier than a four colour Hi-Re^

Besl of all, MacroSystem have gol

lams that plagued Ihe original Retina M 
rtoing pretty much -everything using Retina 
23's built-in bliller, which leaves your CRT 
RAM Ires for more important things. 


CONCERN 


l think it's a shame that a product wito 
such potential should receive such a poc f 
overall review. If MacroSystem had bucket 
their ideas up a bit and given the Retina Z: 
iwo monitor ports, a decent manual, 
readme’s in English as well as j 
German (especially worrying when I recog- 
nise words like Achtung! in them), inductee 
the video encoder in the price and most 
importantly, completely revised their sys- 
tem of RTG, I would have been a lot 
happier. 

I first saw the original Retina card as a 
prototype In Germany in 1992 and was 
amazed at what MacroSystem were trying 
to do: a 24 -bit graphics card that could be 
used with all applications, nol just pair'

However, it seams lhat they have nc: 
realty looked at ail ihe competition that has 
sprung up around them in the shape of 
EGS and Picasso which offer better 


usability with comparable facilities.

TUTORIAL 



verthe next six issues i'll bE using 
Devpac to build an Intuition pro- 
gram lhat is able to display text 
' los. This may not sound like an oarth-shat- 
‘.-ring goal, but you will be learning about a 
-imola range ol useful things like using Lhe 
ASL file requester, detecting menu events 
and so on and it’ll all be done using 
Release 2 (and upwards) compasible code. 

I’ll be spending quite a bet of time explain- 
ng the underlying ideas and first on the 
agenda are some details about how you 
■jctually create an assembly language 
program, 

Step one is to use an editor lo prepare 
something known as a source code file All 
this means is 111 at you use a text editor to 
create a plain ASCII lext file containing the 
program instructions. 

Devpac has its own editor and the editor 
window appears as soon as Oevpac starts, 
Cnee l he program instructions have been 
written, the next stop is to convert 
tho source to the appropriate 690x0 
mstruclions. 

With Devpac there are two ways of doing 
this but the easiest way, which is ideal for 
simple programs lhat involve just ora 


If you are heen to join the — i 
euer -increasing number of If mig a — 
BBBhB coders, then this nem — 
series from Paul Bueraa is sure 
to set you on the right track 


source file, is to let Devpac produce an exe- 
cutable (run able) program directly. This is 
what we shall be using during the early 
instalment, 

The Amiga s multitasking Exec supports a 
library system that exists quile separately 
from the applications programs which run, 
Since our program will be making extensive 
use of a number ol these libraries, some 
preliminary explanations are m order. 

Programs tell Exec lhal a library is needed 
by attempting to 'open' it using an 
OpenLibraryQ function, it's important to 
know that the QpenLibrary() call was 


Assembling and running the cods 

I actually wrote this example with Devpac 3, but armed with an advance copy of the 
de-archived Devpsc2 cover disks (which by now you also will have) 1 was able to 
test the code with the Devpac 2 package as well. These Devpac 2 instructions 
should work with all machines (even single drive ones). 

First, copy this month's ACl.s example code to the ram disk. Insert the Devac 
AMI disk into drO: and make ritOre the current directory by typing CD dfOic at a Shell 
window. 

Now type Genam2 to load Devpac and then use the Project menu to load the 
source from the ram disk. Select Assemble' from the Devpac Program menu and 
choose the Output lo memory' option to assemble the program (because then you'll 
be able to run it directly from the Devpac2 Program menu). 

Once you're happy that it works you can reassemble it using the ‘Output to disk' 
Option lo store a permanent Copy. 

The example code should also assemble withoul error with other assemblers but 
do noie lhat, al the momenl, the code MUST be run either dtrecliy from Devpac or 
from a Shell window - it will NOT run from l he Workbench because we've not added 
any startup code (this comes later in the series). 



successful and this is done by checking that the 
relumed address is ngn-NULL (ie non-zero). 


Function Name: OpenLJbr&ryQ

Return Value: base address - the address 
of the base of me library. If ihe library can- 
not be opened a NULL (zero) value is 
ra fumed

Return Value: None 

OpenLibraryO is an Exec library function and 
having said lhal the first stage in using a library 
is to open it by using the Exec OpenUbraryf) 
function - you may be wondering how you 
open I ha Exec library in the fins* place. 

Tho simple answer is that you don't need to 
- (he Exec library base address is perma- 
nently available and stored in the long -word 
at memory location 4 (called AbsExecBase). 

Amiga library functions are accessed using 
indirect addressing coupled with an offset 
vafue called a library vector offset (LVG) - 
this identifies which library function is 
involved. 

By convention we place the base address 
of the library in register a6 so the code for qn 
Open Lib rary() call will look like this:

I 'El be using a macro called CALLSYS to create 















tutorial 


a tiigh-level' code unit lhai I'll use for all library 
calls. CALlSYS al&o preserves and reinstates 
register a& (so that its contents are no! overwrit- 
ten) but the best nows is that it allows ihe 
above type ol operations lo be written in Ibis 
simple form: 

£ AL LET i QoriiLi tl r iry, Jbi tienNse 

Incidentally, LVO values can be acquired in a 
number of ways bul lor the moment I will be 
putting LVO definitions al the start of the pro- 
grams because Ibis is oasiesl. 

What happens as far as Ihe indirect subrou- 
tine call with displacement is concerned is that 
the address in the specified address register 
gets added to Ihe specilied LVO function call 
displacement and this produces a destination 
subroutine address that leads us to the right 
library function. 

It is, of course, necessary lo sel up the para- 
meters needed by the library function before 
making the call. If, for example, you look at the 
OpenUbraryO function box out you'll see Thai it 
needs a pointer to a library name in register al , 
and a version number in dO. 

I'll bo setting dO to zero because this tells 
Exec that any library version will do. 

Closing a library is ]us( as easy as opening it. 
You use the same type of indin&et subroutine 
call, but specify the Close Lifer ary () function 
instead

At the moment our program is relatively short 
and consisis of these five sections:

4, A subroutine which handles the library 
dosing operations. 

5. Space for library bases, names, and a 
library name pointer list. 

Incidentally, I have included a couple o! 
instructions in the program which make an 
Intuition DisplayBeepO call so that the pro- 
gram does something visible when run. 

# Next month I'll be adding some window 
opening codn to this framework, 


We'll be explicitly opening the DOS, graphics, intu- 
ition, gadtools, and asl libraries, so the appropriate 
text strings representing Ihe name of Ihe libraries 
need lo bo included in the source via dc.b pseudo-op 
statements. 

Note that NULL (zero) bytes are used at ihe end of 
the reat text characters to identity Ihe end of Ihe string 
(a common convention), like Ihis: 

Uhl dc.b 1 Bps . UhriryU WU 

We also need some labelled long word locations lo 
store the base addresses of the libraries we open and 
here we use the ds.l pseudo-op in this fashion... 

jqSBisp ds.L 1 

As far as opening libranes is concerned wave got to 
load the address of the Exec library into register a6 
then, for each library we wish to open, set up library 
name pointer and version details before making an 
OpenUbraryO call, 

If tba values returned In dO are not zero then the 
libraries will all be open, How do we test dO lo check 
whether it contains a zero or nol? It's easy - we use a 
move instruction lo copy the contents of dO to the 
location that we've set up to hold the library pointer, 
and as the move occurs the processor’s zero flag will 
be sel to reflect the jtertVnon-zero status of Ihe result. 

If the libraries do open successfully we'll need 
these pointers in order to perform Ihe CtoscUbraryO 
operations before the program terminates. 

Because of the number of libraries being opened I 
havE coded (he opening and closing operations using 
loops. Pointers to Dae first library name and base are 


loaded into registers a2 and a3, and d3 is loaded with 
a count one less than the number of libraries to be 
opened (this is because the automated dbeq instruc- 
tion counts down lo -1 if the loop goes to completion). 
Here are the setting up operations: 




In 

Itl

and here is ihe corresponding loop code that actually

Notice how I've used indirect addressing with autoin- 
croment instructions when copying the library names 
and returned library base pointers, With al for 
mstance, which starts off holding the address of ihe 
first library In the list of library names (dos library), 
this is what happens. 

The move.! i&2)+ t a1 instruction copies the DOS 
library name pointer to al (this is in readiness tor Ihe 
OpenUbraryO call}. After this occurs register a2 is 
auto incremented by 4 so that a2 then paints to Ihe 
next library name to be used. The same autoincre- 
menl idea is used when storing the returned library 
bases. 

The loop terminates either wilh dO holding the las! 
valid open library pointer and d3 holding -1 or, if an 
OpenLlbraryO call failed, with dO holding 0 and d3 
holding a loop count value between 4 and 0. 


1 11 1 1 


The important point with al! tills, which you'll see il 
you tiace through ihe loop code, is that as soon as a 
library open error occurs Ihe loop quits with register 
(a3> pointing to ihe base of the library that failed to 
openl 

To cIose any previously successfully-opened 
libraries, all we need to do is use a backward reading 
loop to collect thg valid library painters already stored 
in the library baso variables. 

When you examine the code on the cover disk 
you'll see that the library closing loop has been writ- 
ten as a subroutine. 

This is because the code can be called under two 
different situations - when the program has run with- 
out error and all Itve libraries need to be closed, or 
when ihera has been a library opening error and four 
or less libraries need to be closed. 

By tasting the zero flag at the end of Ihe library 
opening loop wc can tell whHiber an error occurred, 
so a conditional beq instruction allows us to select 
either a normal or an error pathway like Ihis:

nothing to do with the horror movie or for that matter little to do wilh the night, with the 
subjects varying considarably from strange lizards to cacti. 

Most of Ihe pictures use reflections in some way to create soma brilliant effects, One 
of J |he most outstanding is of what looks like a piece of bronze with the outline of a face 
moulded into it. Other pictures include the Terminator, a car with a beach scene back-

Hung Fu Mies 

Available from: Scribble PD 

Disk No G093 


Another simple idea well executed, Kung F u 
Charlies is a mixture between a platformer 
and a boat-'em-up. You are a Kung Fu ninja 
character (as tho title suggests! ) and must 
make your way through the levels of plat- 


forms white defeating the many enemy ninja 
characters that appear, 

You are able lo carry out quite a few 
moves to effectively dBleat the baddies, 
such as a crouch -down kick, or a straightfor- 
ward front kick. 

Graphically, the game is rather primitive 
but the cartoon-slyle characters are quite 
appealing and reasonably detailed The 
amusing Ninja yells add appeal and work 
well, Two-player mode gives the game 
another angle - the second; player takes the 
form of a strange clown-looking ninja, and 
you both take Ihe same side against Ihe 
ninjas. 

This all adds up lo some very basic but 
fun beat-'em-up action. It certainly isn't First 
Samurai or anything of that quality, far from 
it in fact, but rt does have gams play and is 
fun while it lasts... for however long that 
may be!

The Incredible Fining 
Bambini Bros 

Programmed by: Tom Werber 

Available from: Jorvik Public Domain 
Disk Mo ANO 217 

Although this offering by Tom Werber is 
nothing complex or particularly ingenious, 
it is a nica demonstration of how some- 
ihing so simple can work so well. 

Drawn in a style similar to Bob 
Godfrey's Henry's Cat, Ihis animation 
shows the attempts of the Incredible 
Flying Zambini Brothers to perform their 
flying Gimus lucks. 

The comedy is based around tho fact 
That the smallest member of the troupe 
always ruins the trick. All hough none of 
the members have features or even faces 
(they are in fact blobs of colours with a 
vague body shape) they do seem lo have 
a fair amount of character. 

They convey Iheir characteristics merely 
through body size and how they move. 
The green Zambini brother is the smallest 
of the bunch and you can't help feeling a 
certain amount o! Sympathy for him as he 
fails all the tricks the others manage so 
successfully 

This is a surprisingly long animation 
containing Ihrae separate stones. The first 
is Perilous Parachute Problems and the lit- 
tle green character again falls victim lo the 
trick going wrong - the others safely fall 
out of ihe plane and open their para- 
chutes. When it gets lo his turn Ihe chute

Demos are hardly lew and far between 
these days and wilh mosl verging heavily 
on tha mediocre side, it's not surprising

that whenever another demo arrives in Ihe 
post rt's usually met with moans and 
groans and a cynical chorus ol *ha, ha 
spinning cubes agarn," 

So on Ihe rare occasion we gel some- 
thing a little different then it is a joyous day 
in the Amiga Computing offices, 

Fatal Morgana, brought ic us by 
Tragedy, is a mixture of Ihe two — it would 
have been a pretty fine demo but it was 
spoilt with the obligatory spinning cube 
sequence, 

Starting off with your usual ravey tune 
and swirling zig zag patterns, the demo 
then moves on to a circle orbiting a smaller 
circle. Mol mind-blowing stuff admittedly, 
but still rather effective, 

The next image is of a woman dancing in 
front of a moving flowery backdrop. The 
dancing looks smooth and flowing and 
•works well with the rave tune. 

Next up is a stippled picture of a swans 
head and then the swan starts raving - 
yes, a raving swan - unusual and creative. 

Things then get really wild when the 
sequence repeats ifself, the music speeds 
up and the images gets (aster, flashing 
across Ihg screen at a fair rate. Everything 
builds up into a crescendo and then it s all 
■over, well almost. 

Alter recovering Irom all this mind-warp- 
ing stuff you are treated to an animation of 
the headbanging' duo, Beavis and 
Butthead. The usual antics of Ihe twosome 
are included, such as a tow seconds of 
headbanging and Iheir manic laughs H r s all 
finished olf with one of them stating “This 
demo sucks” 

Well, it doesn't, especially if you like 
Beavis and Butthead and fast rave demos.

The Haing Oaq Dish

Gina Means seems to have a knack for creating groat 
disk compilations lor children. The last one I had the 
pleasure ot reviewing was her Pick 'M 1 Slick game - an 
idea similar to Fuzzy Felts, - and this one is of the same 
high standard, 

Included is a Word Search game where Ihe child must 
find the words relating to a particular topic hidden in a 
scramble of letters. These have been well-chosen and 
would ell be fa miliar to a child. 

The Scribble Pad is basically a blank note pad which 
enables the child to create as many pictures as they like 
~ it saves searching round for scrap paper and Ihe 
messy paints every lime. 

Different thicknesses of pens are available and a vari- 
ety of shapes can be used to create the patterns. 
Different colours can also be chosen. 

The next section is a collection of stories including 
Henrietta Hen, Frank Frog, Bertie Bee and Ferdio Frog. 
Thase short stones are accompanied wilh some nice

a young child to read 

Anolher pad tg this disk is the oolcuring-in section, This 
is your usual line drawings left blank for the diild to colour 
in using the pain! box icons ai the top of the screen. 
Overall this is a great, entertaining disk ideal for a 
young child.

involves flying along a vertically scrolling 
screen shooting baddies. 

The levels are based rather nicely 
around themes. For example, the back- 
drops ara made up of sweets and the bad- 
dies are lollies and the like. 

As well as avoiding the nasties and fir- 
ing at Ihem, you have to find your way 
through small gaps In the platforms,. This 
is moro difficult than it sounds as 
Ihe screen is scrolling vertically and 
quite fast - if it touches then it causes 
damage 

Although this is fairly basic gameplay 
the graphics are of a particularly high 
quality Many colours have been used to 
create ihe background, making for a very 
professional-looking game indued. 

Turbo Hockey is another lairly simple 
idea but works well Two-players compete 
on an ice rink with goals ai either end and 
the idea is to get conlrol of the puok and 
blast it past your opponent's goal, it won't 
astound with great graphics or anything 
but It is vary playable 

The third, and by lar Ihe best, is Brain 
Damage, a puzzler which requires you to 
move the various objects into a pattern 
aroundi a chequered board. 

The board consists of 6x6 squares, 
some containing objects that are moved 
around using the arrows surrounding the 
board. This makes it incredibly difficult as 
you have to move an entire row or col- 
umn. 

You can set the difficulty from Moronic 
lo Average. (The registered version goes 
on to include more levels plus an 
Ingenious stage - it also contains a save 
and load game option.) 

The more difficult Ihe level, the less 
Ume you have to comp lets the puzzle in 
and the less moves it musl be done in. 
The game is also affected by being able 
to Rotate, Transform and Bomb certain 
parts of (ha pattern. 

This is all very taxing and if Rubies 


Cubes and the like didn't appeal ther> 
steer clear! This is a more sophisticated 
brain I Baser- style game thal requires a 
great deal of logical thought, A vary 
entertaining puzzler.

Daze on the ball 

On The Ball is the UK version of an extraordinar- 
ily successful German football game called 
Anstpss, which has been at the top of the 
German software charts for practically the 
whole of this year, 

A development team of 20 took on 
the task of creating the game, including 
such features as live running commen- 
tary and a four-player mode. 

One of the key factors of On The Ball 
is its strong graphical presentation, The 
animated TV-style coverage was produced by 
two experienced Illustrators from German 
television, 

Together they spent over three months illustrating the action sequences. 
Over 420 individual animations sequences, including shots at goal, corners, 
penalties, fouls and goals, all viewed from different angles were produced. 

The final result is over 45 minutes of "live" animated action, compressed 
onto one disk so that no disk swapping is needed in the middle of a match. 

On The Sail World Cup Edition should be out by the time you read this, 
while the League Edition will be brought out at the end of August. 

This will be completely updated for the new season and features the full 
Premier League and the First Division, The pruce is still unconfirmed, but Da?e 
says it wilt be around the £29.99 mark. 





Going for goal! 


The World Cup rs row over and I bet you've been as surprised as System at 
the amount of football games sitting cm the shop shelves. You'll not have 
been able to afford all of them, but Empire have come up with what is surely 
the best -ever football compilation pack. 

Empire World Cup Year "94 contains Sensible Soccer, Goal, Championship 
Manager '93 (plus it's J 94 data disk) and Striker. For football aficionados this 
is surely a compilation sent from heaven, but I suppose the majority of games 
players have got at least one out of the four games. 

If you haven't got any of these games then this is your lucky day, because 
Empire World Cup Year ‘94 costs only £25 99 which works out at about £6.50 
per game. 


A dip in the Ocean 


Electronic Arts has just signed a deal 
with Ocean that enables the 
Manchester-based software house to

back on the right trad 


Beneath a Steel Sky 


Revolution Software has surpassed the amaz- 
ing Lure of the Temptress with their latest 
adventure and i congratulate them on mak- 
ing such a fine adventure game. 

Everything about it just oozes quality and 
over the last couple of weeks rt's been a real 


pleasure to play, The graphics are good 
enough to marry and" have children with and 
the game play and actual storyline are first- 
rate. If it doesn't go to the top of the soft- 
ware charts then I think there is simply no 
justice in this world. 


Darkmere 


This must surely rate as one of the best 3D 
isometric adventures ever to appear on the 
Amiga. It possesses a haunting style that is 
completely unique and seldom achieved in 
many computer titles, 

Darkmere really is a pretty dassy title, The 


graphics create such a mood that it gives the 
adventure an immediate head start over 
everything else it competes against. 

It's contained in a huge playing area and 
includes objectives and puzzles that will hold 
your attention fora good while. 


Arcade Pool 


Arcade Pool can now be added to the list of 
Team 17 budget successes, 

The game may have very nice graphics, but 
it's in the playability department where it 
excels. 

There are so many different game styles 


that you'd be hard pressed to become bored 
with this piece. 

For just under a tenner it is an amazing 
bargain, especially when you consider that it 
has actually been in development longer than 
most full -price games. 


James Pond 3 


Highly original it might not be r but fans of 
the previous games and platform lovers will 
be absolutely besotted with the third instal- 
ment. For sheer enjoyment and lastability, 
you'd have to go far to find a better platform 


game than Millennium's tasty third fishy 
adventure. If you're yearning for some fast, 
frenetic platform jumping fun, then I suggest 
you splash youf cash on name? Pond 3 . You 
will not regret it! 


Benefactor is the bast thing Psygnosis has released in a long time. 
It feels like a montage of Flashback and Psygnosis' very own 
genocidal pets, the Lemmings. Both the graphics and sound have 
been implemented very well. The variety of both location and 
puzzle aspect of Benefactor make it an engrossing challenge. 

Benefactor is the type of title that will keep the most dextrous 
platform freaks and puzzle lovers alike twiddling well into the 
wee hours. 


The scores 
on the doors 

System has a different scoring system than any 
of our competitors, so before yon continue 
reading tta mag, glance at the words below t 
0 find nut enactty how it works. 

I'm sure many of you are now familiar with our new 
scoring system, but for those reading Amiga 
Computing for the first time and those who might 
have forgotten exactly how it works, here is our 
guide to the System scoring, err system. 

In our opinion, review scores have lost their con- 
text as a percentage; some products receiving scores 
which were only a few percentage short of being the 
"perfect" game, when in truth they were only 
marginally above average. 

OK, so the scores might seem unnaturally low at 
first but that's only because other scoring systems 
tend to be on the high side and perhaps not as com- 
prehensive or honest as they could be 

In the long run you 1 II receive a more concise and 
reader-orientated review that's geared towards the 
consumer 

0-20 This is given to the lowest of the low 

21-30 An all-round poor game that 
may have a single saving grace 

31-40 Just below the average, perhaps 
let down by a few indiscretions, 

41-55 Games of this score are roughly average 
with 50 being a perfectly average score. 


56-66 This is an above average game 
and is worth buying. For this reason 
it would be awarded the BRONZE 
award. 




67-77 A game of high quality that 
you as a reviewer would have no 
reservation in recommending 
Anything of this ilk would he 
awarded the SILVER award, 


7&-B9 A brilliant title. Definitely 
worth buying and almost the defini- 
tive of its kind, This type of game 
would receive the GOLD award. 


GOLD 

. IK 11. 


90-100 The best in its genre, This benchmark title 
receives the PLATINUM title.

I do like this game and the weirdest bit is, I've never been 
d fan of shoot-'em-ups! They usually bore me to bits, but 
Banshee has that elusive quality that drags you in. Each 
level demands new challenges which are genuinely tough, 
and the learning curve is just right. 

This is an intense and extremely satisfying game that 
should tempt any games fan with an ounce of adrenaline 
in their veins, The Harvey Keitel of shoot- 'em- ups.

ou start as Heimdall himself in the Hall of 
Worlds, so the first thing you should do is 
switch to Ursha and walk over to the bow 
and arrow. 

After you've equipped her with the bow 
and arrow, remember to use Ursha especially on dan- 
gerous tasks because if she perishes you can continue, 
whereas if Heimdall is killed the game is over. 

Move to the only entrance that darkens when you 



The first (rf fivm pifru of Hs* ftc'Gtld is disto 


approach it and begin the 
search for the first part of 
the quest. 

Once through you'll see 
two obelisks. If you release 
an arrow at the obelisks 
then one of the following 
will occur.. The one on the 
right materialises a Hakrat, 
which will only add to the 
difficulty of your quest. 
Conversely, the obelisk on 
the left reveals the rainbow 
bridge onto which you can 
walk. 

At Rurick's village, the 
first thing to do is to enter 
all the huts and search for 
equipment. On entering a 
building that looks like a 
store room, open the bon 
towards the rear of the room arnd you will find the 
circlet inside. 

After this, proceed towards Rurick's hut and speak 
to him. He'll tell you about Eadric and ask for your 
help. From here, leave Rurick's village, head to the 
map screen and steer a course for Eadric's village, 

Go to Eadric and offer him the circlet as a peace 
offering He'll give you a letter to return to fiuriick, 
confirming the peace. Now, enter the pub for some 
intoxicating conversation 9 bout your quest and re-live 
a moment from the original Heimdall game. 

Return to Rurick's village and give him the letter 
offering peace. In return he'll give you a pass which 
will allow you entry past the guard into the king's 
castle. 

Give the guard the pass and! enter the castle, Once 
you're in the main hall take the right exit and enter 
the kitchen. Climb the stairway and talk to the serving 
girl - shell tell you what to do next. 

Follow her instructions and go to the corridor with 
the large picture whose eyes follow you- Push the 
painting and the door should slide back to reveal a 
passageway. 

Go into the bedroom, collect the rune book and 
press a fairly well-hidden hutton on the right-hand 
side of the four-postEr bed.. The button will release a 
catch which opens a secret hatch :n the wall that 


contains a signet ring. 

Take the ring and go to the guard who is blocking 
access to the stairway. Give him the ring as formal 
identification of the King and walk down the stairs, A 
Hakrat, who stems especially awkward to kill, waits 
in the next location. 

At this point in the proceedings you have two 
choices - attempt to kill the Hakrat using some cun- 
ning, or travel to the Giant's Isle and use a little bit of 
cheating to strengthen Heimdall. 

If you wish to use this technique, jump ahead to 
the sub- section dedicated to the Giant's Isle. The cun- 
ning way to defeat the Hgkrat is to fire an arrow into

the room beyond. Hopefully ne'll follow it in, and, as 
' n e room is booby trapped, he'll be minced. 

However, if for some reason your arrows miss and 
he bears down on you into a position where he'll 
■ever follow the arrow, you'll have to slug it out with 
him, and that could he dodgy. 

Once you've killed him (by whatever means}, 
approach the two prisoners, One of them is the King's 
brother - he'll give you a letter to take to the King. 

When you visit the King's chamber his adviser will 
vanish as he realises that his deception has been 
jncovered. At the same time a forcefield blocking 
,-ccess to a passage at the top of the stairs will 
d sap pear. 

A little warning - don't drink the bottle of beer 
’hat's left cm top of the King's table as it's poisoned. 

Climb the stairs and enter the next location. You'll 
>ee that the path is missing and access is blocked, 
shooting your arrows into the three holes will fill the 
path and allow access to the next room. 

Touching the statue releases a skull which is the 
nrst piece of the flo'Geld. leave the island and sail to 
the Fisherman's Isle. 

Once on the fisherman's Isle, enter the fisherman's 
hut and pick up all the objects available. Walk to the 
rear of the hut and open the wardrobe door. You'll 





discover the fisherman who'll tell you about the 
plight of his daughter, 

At Loki's shrine walk in to the portal when it's the 
correct colour - the fisherman will inform you which 
is best, so pay attention to what he says, 

When you've rescued his daughter she will give 
you a talisman which will grant you access to Utgard. 
the second world. 

Once in Utgard, on the Dwarven Isle, speak to the 
dying man at the foreground of the battlefield and 
he will tell you to meet him in the half- world. Shoot 
an arrow into the circle of fire by the standing stones 
arid you'll enter the half-world. 

Return to the man and talk to him again and he 
will tell you how to get into the castle using his 
armour and will give you a letter. Go back to the cir- 
cle and shoot another arrow into the fire - you'll 
now he back in the normal world. 

PROTECTION 

Walk to where the man hes and pick up the 
armour that sits by his side. Put it on and enter the 
castle. Find the King's chambers and give him the 
letter. In return the King will give you another 
letter. 

Search the castle and pick up the Rainbow ring 
which is on a table at the top of the stairs. Find the 
shop and buy yourself the large axe as it's the best 
weapon available presently for hand-to-hand 
combat 

Leave the castle via the main lobby's tar-right exit, 
rather than the one which leads back to the battle- 
field, and you'll reach the Utgard map. 

If you read the earlier part of this guide then 


you'll remember that I mentioned travelling to 
Giants Isle to strengthen Hetmdall 

Being extremely brave you must attack the giants 
that guard the rooms. They are very difficult to kill, 
but do up rate your attack strength. 

At this stage of the game your attack strength 


ThQ world 
of Uty&td 

should be about nine or ten, but by continually striking 
blows with the axe at the giant you can 
eventually reach the highest achievable strength of 99. 

If at any point your own health bar drops to a risky 
level, leave to the safety of the previous room (he 
won't follow) and cast a healing spell on yourself. 







Q Anyway, you should benefit from this 
extra muscle from here on. Ta get past the 
Giant's tile you must first enter the ice god's 
room and fill your flask with water. 

Then, go back into the fire god's room and throw 
the water into the fire - an ice bridge will appear 
across the water in the ice god's room. 

Kill the second Hakrat (be careful, everytime you 
kill one they return, but you should make mince of 
them by now with your enhanced brawn} and throw 
the cygnet ring into the sphere of light. 

Be careful when throwing that you get it right, 
because if you don't the ensuing Hakrat could pick it 
up. 

In the giant's Hq, use your dexterity to avoid the 
fire-balls as you make your way along the path. Once 
over, push the candle over, pick up the talisman and 
return to the Hall of World's.

When your boat docks at Dalti village ignore 
the Dakta who stands at the jetty and walk on - 
while this might seem pointless now, it'll be 
vital when you come to be judged. 

Find the armoury and kill the Dakta who is 
giving the prisoners a hard time. Then, speak to 
the man who is crafting a sword and he'll give it 
to you. 


Find the pub and kill the Dakta who is sitting 
around. Then, move on to the next room and 
kill the two Oaktas who are in charge of the vil- 
lage. After the carnage is over, return to the 
map screen and proceed to the Dakta HQ,

you yet another letter.

Small details show the care with 
which the graphics have been made. 
For example, in each scene there is an 
animated object or character in the 
background. Doors open and specta- 
tors blink, or move slightly. 

Although only subtle details, which 
at first do go unnoticed, they work 
well, and unlike some games that try

Many beet-'em-ups have been released for the Amiga and in my mind 
Body Blows Galactic still reigns supreme. Granted, it may be more vio- 
lent, but you do have a good choree of moves and characters available 
and graphically it looks superb. 

Mortal Korn bat, employing a different style altogether, also has 
more to it than Elf mania with regards to the action. Elf mania doesn't 
seem to pack quite the same punch as other games of this nature or 
give the same sense of satisfaction after a round well fought. 

It does have a certain charm though, and if you're looking for a 
beat-'em-up that has a strategic angle without the blood and guts 
then it's definitely worth buying 



Music accompanies the fight scenes 
but it isn't particularly astounding - 
rfs not one of those irritating, grat- 
ing tunes but It doesn't really con- 
jure up any atmosphere either. 

A more fitting choice of sound- 
track could have really enhanced 
the theme of the q a me and evoked 
more erf an atmosphere, 

The usual shouts and yells that 
fit in with the moves are included 
and quite realistically convey the 
action. All the characters have catch 
phrases which they use at the 
beginning or end of a fight. These 
work well and do create the feeling 
of the tournament spirit.

While it is a nice idea having a 'less violent' beat-'em- 
up by using cute elf characters, it is at times a bit too 
twee and everything is a bit too nice. 

Beat-'em-ups bring out the more aggressive style 
of playing and when your opponent is a smiling elf it 
can become rather frustrating. The game redeems 
itself when you meet the tougher fighters later on 
and gets the real fighting feel back into it. 

More moves would have oenefited the game as 
they are quite limited. All the characters have very 
similar moves and although this results in a simple 
control system that is easy to get to grips with, it 
does become rather repetitive after a while. The spe- 
cial moves also take a fair amount of joystick bashing 
to get to work. And what can't be forgiven is all the 


disk accessing The game is not hard disk installable 
and unless you have an extra drive you will be con- 
stantly plagued with swapping between disks after 
each fight, 

It's not all bad though, far from it in fact. The 
game does have a lot going in its favour, such as an 
artificial intelligence system which means you can't 
just find one successful move and use it throughout 
the fight because the computer susses out what you 
are up to and will avoid your hits. 

The control system is easy to get the hang of and 
the coin idea is excellent. When you nit your oppo- 
nent he releases coins - you can then hit them back 
at your opponent to cause additional damage. 

Two-player mode is also quite fun and you can 
choose from a If of the six fighters available fin a one- 
player game they only become available when you 
have earned enough coins). The strategic angle is a 



nice touch. The country is 
divided into 36 counties 
and via the mapseneen 
you must conquer six 
counties in a row to 
win. 

But it's up to you 
whether to go straight 
ahead and try for the six 
in a row or build up your 
cash by defeating the easier 
opponents and going on to the 
Bonus Stage. 

So, despite its 'cutesy' appearance and hmited 
amount of moves and characters, this is a surprisingly 
playable and addictive tide. The sprites are solid and 
well animated, the backdrops absolutely superb and 
the extra features add a novel aspect to it.

other footy games clamouring for

At least you do if you're the cheeky tinkers who gave us Brutal 
Sports Football. Polish down your swords, load your guns and take to 
the pitch for a match that would even make Uinoy Jones flinch. 




Good and bad in this department, The progression from Brutal Sports Footy mani- 
fests itself most obviously in the isometric viewpoint, which gives the game a much 
more flesh ed-out feel. 

There are also improvements in the addition of pictures of whichever player has 
control of the bail. The more bartered they get, the more their portrait bleeds from 
its nose and mouth, 

Icky, tasteless but very handy when you want to finish off a weakened opponent. 
The violence is nicely handled as well, with showers of blood coming from every col 
I i sion, and the occasional decapitation from a well-timed flying tackle giving a new 
meaning to taking a header. 

The downside comes when you try and actually control what is going on. The 
viewpoint counts against the game when you try and carry out anything even 
remotely involving precision or skill, as the ball is often lost in the midst of the 
players.

Qopj. This is where the game falls down a bit. The marriage between sports game 
and beat-'em-up is a bit shaky, with neither aspect coming out any the better. 

The sport gets m the way of the violence,, and the violence gets in the way of the 
sporting action. Too often the game degenerates into a frantic waggle-fest as you 
just hit fire repeatedly to duff up the opposition. 

Every now and then there's an opening at the goal (usually if the otherwise 
invincible goalkeeper is clobbered) and you remember that there's a ball involved 
m this game and hoof it goalwards. 

There's just no feeling of control over the action. Every time you score you know 
it was down to sheer flukmess rather than any premeditated tactics paying off. 

The isometric view also causes problems by making it difficult to see where other 
players are in relation to yourself, SO- any precise passing is ignored in favour of the 
"boot it up the field" approach. 

There are also some power ups to be collected, usually by accident, and matches 
that are drawn result in a penalty shoot-out using real guns. 

The trouble is that there are so many good ideas and neat touches struggling to 
peek out from beneath a rather unplayable game, and this gives you a glimpse of 
just what the game could have been like. 





Sound is, for the most part, func- 
tional, There's a pleasant enough 
tune that somehow sounds like 
every other football-related tune 
you ever heard. The in- game sounds 
are just your bask ticking noises 
and some crunches when players 
thunder into each other. 

With the violence aspect I 
expected some more excruciating 
sounds to compliment the breaking 
of bones, but chances are you won't 
notice the sounds anyway as you'll 
be too busy scrabbling for the ball.

While violent sports games are a 
pretty obvious idea, there are sur 
prisingly few that spring to mind - 
unless you include rugby. The most 
obvious, and probably best, are the 
Speedball games by the saucy 
Bitmap Bro's. 

Viewed from above, it's a sort of 
basketball with fists combination, 
As with Wild Cup, you can collect 
power-ups to cripple the opposition 
and then punch your way to their 
goal before hurling the ball in. 

The simplicity works in the games 
favour and* it's easy to get straight 
in there and start scoring even for a 
begin ner. 

Otiher contenders include Smash 
TV which was more in a shoot-em- 
up vein. The original Brutal Sports 
Football follows very similar lines to 
Wild Cup, but it looks rather flat 
and suffers from the same sense of 
"what is going on?" that marrs its 
follow up,

OPINION MU! 


It's all a bit disappointing really. The idea is sound and the implementation almost 
pulls it off, but the clumsy controls reduce the game to a random mess of punch- 
ing and occasionally making a run for goal. 

The most annoying aspect is that there is so obviously a very good game lurking 
in here, but all you ever get are tantalising glimpses of how good it could be. 

For example, the players not under your control are aggravaiingly useless. You 


make a run for goal with another member of your team in tow. Ideally he would 
sort out the goalie while you score, but what tends to happen is that he stands by 
while the goalkeeper smacks your head in and the opposing team thieve the ball 
and leg it 

All in all, a good game that suffers due to it's annoying quirks, Practise might 
well allow you to get past the obstructive melee of frantic joystick waggling, but 
the sad truth is that you shouldn't need to practise just to enjoy the game. 

With so many other footy-related games out at the moment, there's no need to 
struggle with this one, which is a pity.

they amazed the gam es-p laying 
public. 

Then Cambridge-based software house, 
Sensible Software, came along and 
Started off what tan only he described as 
a fierce battle between these soccer 


Anco have really developed a good- 1 poking game and 
with regards to pitch view and sprite size they have come 
up with a winner. Viewed from a side-on, slightly ele- 
vated position, the game is dearly seen with none of the 
action being missed. 

Sprites are in proportion to the ball and the stadium, 
giving an overall impression of realism. There are some 
nice animations, such as when a player scores, and the 
crowd and stadium are very detailed and nicely dirawn.

So mi- players will hiw Higher attributes than 
o then from W*™* to flair, pace or agility 




Abysmal is one of the more polite 
words I could use about the sound. 
The poor excuse for a 'crowd noise' is 
hardly worth mentioning - unless of 
course to stress how atrocious and 
annoying it is. There is no cheering 
when you make a break with the ball 
and when you actually score it is met 
with stony silence. 

One crowd chant is. used through- 
out which is pretty much indecipher- 
able and is merely a half-hearted 
mumble. And as for the necessary 
sound effects that should convince 
you that you J ve given the ball a good 
wallop, or that you've skidd Ed at full 
pelt down onto the pitch, well they 
too are a sorry case. 

Enough said, I think. Buy it and 
play with the volume switch down by 
all means but then you'd miss the 
essential atmosphere, the build up of 
match tension, the euphoric cheer Df 
the crowd as your shot hits the goal,,.

INTRODUCTION 


INTRODUCTION 


legends and 
their hot new 
offering, Sen- 
sible Soccer. And now, when all the 
wounds are barely healed, the war is 
about to Start up all over again with both 
companies intending to bombard 
the shops, promising even bigger 
and better games. Kick Off 3 goes into 
battle. 


Fouled by football? 
Want Id give soccer 
a sending off? H not 
read on as Tina 
Hackett referees 
the latest 
contender in the 
computer football 
world cup 


ititnunvii 

















A game of many, many options, Kick Off 3 really js exceptional in this respect. 
You can change almost anything and unlike some similar titles, these options 
really do alter the game. 

For starters there's a Simulation or Arcade mode, ideal for either the serious 
followers of soccer or for those wanting a simple kick -a bout 

There are Game Speed and Ball Control options and a great 
tactical element is brought in by changing players according to their 
abilities, deciding formations, and even playing manager by issuing team 
talks throughout the match. Practice mode comes in very handy for 


improving your skills and you can even have an overall assessment 
made of your abilities. Test your nerve in a penalty shoot-out 
or practice your dribbling around a set of cones and then shoot at 
the goal. 

The many competitions you can take part in will ensure lasting appeal Play in 
an international friendly, the World Cup, Anco Cup Of Anco League, or test your 
playing skills in The Challenge. 

You can also replay some of your finer moments and see the match facts to 
accurately keep track of your progress. 

This is a more than proficient footy sim but you should bear in mind that a two 
independent button joystick is essential and if sound effects are high on your list 
of priorities then it may not be for you. 


Kick Off 3 gives you the choice 
between a fast arcade kick- 
about or a more realistic simula- 
tion. In this mode you will find 
all the rules included and every 
aspect of the real game closely 
adhered to. 

Many moves can be achieved, 
from the usual headers and tack- 
les to the high kicks and after 
touch, resulting in a satisfying 
playing style that is close to the 
real thing. 

All the countries involved 
have their own playing methods 
and each one brings its unique 
national character in to the 
game. Players also have differ- 
ent attributes. 

Some may have vision - play- 
ers who will read the game and 
do long passes mto space - 
whereas a player with high flair 
wilt take the ball towards the 
opposition half instead of pass- 
ing it and will also tend to shoot 
at the goal from distance. 

Different levels of difficulty 
can be chosen so both the 
expert and novice are catered 
for. 

The ball ccmtrdl setting, for 
instance, deter mines how easily 
you can turn with the ball, At 
international level you'll need a 
fair amount of experience to do 


Would you be at all surprised if 1 men- 
tioned Goal and Sensible Soccer here? No, 
you probably won't so I'll go ahead and 
Compare Kick Off 3 to these footy greats. 

What more can be said about Goal 
though, it has everything - atmosphere, 
playability, great graphics and high addic- 
tion levels. 

Sensible Soccer again has all this and 
I'm afraid Kick Off 3 is the sweaty sock 
among this collection - it doesn't conjure 
the atmosphere, and it certainly isn't as 
instantly playable or as addictive. 

Playability-wise it does kick some of 
the other recent releases we've seen 
lately in to touch though, and if you want 
to go and fork out on a two independent 
button joystick then you will gel a pretty 
fine footy game wilh a wealth of options 
that could teach other footy games a 
thing or two.

INTRODUCTION 


o there's this rabbit, 
see? And as all his 
woodland friends have 

suddenly turned into slavering beasts, he's feeling a 
bit put out. So he StbfK day-dreaming about the foxy 
she rabbit from the Cadbury's Caramel advert and hops 
off to dispense the long ear ot the law to his violent ex-friends. 
It's a platform game, obviously.

As befits a cute rabbit game, the 
tune is all bounty and Cheery. It 
probably wouldn’t sound out of 
plate on a kids’ TV programme, 
like those quite terrifying Tiny Tots 
creations. 

However, as is the case with 
pretty much every game tune ever, 
it has the ability to irritate you to 
the point of violence after about 
10 minutes, so thank goodness for 
the chance to prod 'M‘ and switch 
it off, 

Unfortunately, this shows up 
how sparse the sound is, A f ew FX 
for the enemies would have added 
greatly to the grooviness of the 
game. A squawk from the birds or 
a howl from the coyotes would be 
most pleasant, Inoffensive, but

There are two sorts of platform games, the nor- 
mal sort and the cute sort. With a blue rabbit as 
its main character and various other furry animals 
as baddies* guess which sort Quik is. Yep, it's a 
cut#-o-rama. And it looks realty rather pleasant. 

The scrolling is smooth enough and the back- 
grounds and platforms are clearly defined and a 
pleasure to jump on. The best graphical aspect of 
Quik is the great variety of enemy sprites., all 
suited tD their respective ^ones, and each ani- 
mated with individuality and flair. 

It’s also one of those games where bonus 
rooms and secret routes are tucked away but eas- 
ily found. You know the sort of thing - conspic- 
uos walls just begging to be jumped through. 
Some you'll find by accident and others you can 
unearth by using g a mesp layer's intuition. 

All in all it looks good and solid. All the plat- 
form requirements are there and it handles like a 
dream.

Make your way from one end of the level to the other, jump- 
ing on pi it... stop me if you've heard this before won't you? 
To bE fair though, despite it's generic appearance Quit is a 
very playable little game. 

He can spin into enemies to kill them in a quite hedgehog- 
tastic kinda way, and then collect whatever power-up is left 
behind. Being a rabbit, Quik requires constant carrot and 
water refills to prevent a trip to bunny heaven. 

You can also collect hearts to keep your energy up and 
potions to enhance his natural bunny skills (no, not those 
rabbit skills). The potions come in two flavours, red and 
green, and allow him to jump extra high or to zoom along at 
thunder-like speeds. 

While under the influence of the super speed beverage, 
our hero is impervious to damage from enemies but can eas- 


ily lose his power by trashing into a wall. 

At the start of each level you'll be told what you must do, 
Some levels simply require & speedy exit, whereas others 
demand that you find a clock before making an exit. 

Clocks tan be found through spooky doors that 
take Quik back in time to a sub-game where you 
must clamber to the top of a themed screen (prehistoric, 
medieval etc} platform by platform to claim the 
dock. The only trouble is that there are rolling boulders and 
a fiendish bird that keeps dragging him back down the 
screen. 

Trampolines, secret passages and ladders are all present 
and correct to assist him in getting to the sub-game, and at 
the end of each zone there's a labyrinth section in quik J s 
burrow where you must first locate and then destroy an end- 
of-level baddie. 

Three similar, but refreshing gamestyles, all wrapped up in 
a playable chocofatey coating then.

Casting aside all previous platform games, Quik is really 
a perfectly funky little game. Admittedly, my first reac- 
tion to a platform game about rabbits was not print- 
able in a family publication, but I was won over by the 
sheer prof esronal ism of it all. The difficulty level is spot 


on, so with just enough effort you can get 
through the first three or four levels, Probably 
more suited to younger players, due to it's simplicity 
and cuddly approach, but despite every aspect 
of it screaming " cliche"' it comes across as a very fun 
game. 

It even stands up well alongside the competition. 
Highly recommended, much to my surprise. 



Quik may very well be a speedy lit- 
tle chap hut by far the coolest rab- 
bit ever was Bugs Bunny, created by 
Bob Clampett in 1938 for the car- 
toon "Porky's Hare Hunt”. 

He was not, however, very funny 
until Tex Avery came along and 
transformed him into the epitome 
of wisecracking, sarcastic Brooklyn 
attitude, 

Sy I9&2 he'd appeared in a stag- 
gering 159 cartoons and received an 
Oscar for "Knighty Knight Bugs" 
His characteristic Hew York drawl 
was provided by Mel Blanc, who 
sadly died recently, Mel was also 
responsible for pretty much every 
cartoon voice ever, as well as Twiki 
the robot from Buck Rogers. A veri- 
table star. 

Cl assic Bugs Bunny moments 
include his frequent cross-dressing 
(thus proving himself to be a rabbit 
in touch with his feminine side), his 
immortal routines with Elmer Fudd 
and Daffy Duck (which always 
resulted in Daffy's beak being 
blown off by Elmer) and one bril- 
liant cartoon where he goes head to 
head with Wile E, Coyote. 

With Bugs you always know that 
he's going to outwit everybody, and 
as such he remains a super-cool, 
suave sex symhol with more star 
quality in his teeth than all of 
Disney's sickly efforts put together. 
Bugs, we salute you.

The tale of Princes, Princesses, Kings, 
witches and dragons is being spun out 
once again. The King's Quest series of 
games have all been very much like a set 
of fairy-tales and I guess that's why 
they're so popular. 

In these times where games must con- 
tain violence or aliens or both to succeed, 
King's Quest makes a nice refreshing 
change.

The seas began to turn vio-

with bits of ship strewn about

Sierra were planning to do a 256-colour version of Kings 
Quest &, but they were so pleased with what the 
32 colour version looked like that they shelved 
the idea. 

I'm in agreement with Sierra's decision because 
the graphics look absolutely gorgeous and the 
256-colour version might have slowed the game 
right down. 

The introduction to the game is rendered in 30 and fea- 
tures some excellent morphing techniques, The sprites, 
which range from guard-dogs and mmotaurs right down to 



the devil himself, are well-drawn and very well animated, 

The icon bar at the top of the screen is very basic, but 
helps the game flow along and makes it easy to understand 
for first-time adventure gamers. 

The only quibble I have is that some of fhe 
objects are just too small for the eye to see and 
you quite often find yourself walking past them. 
The backgrounds in King's Quest & are almost too 
good! They set the atmosphere perfectly and you 
could almost believe you are walking around in d 

fairy-tale. 

Sierra's adventure, graphics wise., is on a par with Monkey 
Island 2 and The Fate of Atlantis. You can't get 
a higher recommendation than that! 1 ]

Vou'd obviously have to compare 
King's Quest 6 to adventures like 
Monkey Island, Simon the Sorteror 
and Beneath a Steel Sky. 

At I these games contain some 
high-quality graphics and have an 
almost unrivalled amount of playa- 
bility. King's Quest 6 is as good as 
just about every other adventure i 
nave ever seen, 

This is the sixth King's Quest 
adventure and although it is 
undoubtedly the best I'd also sug- 
gest you try and get your hands on 
a copy of some of the previous ones, 

They don't quite match King's 
Quest 6 in the graphics depart- 
| ment, but the playahility and addic 
tion is stili there in abundance.

What surprised me the most about 
King's Quest is its brilliant little "olde" 
medieval tune that plays while you play 
More often than not, adventure games 
suffer because of their abysmal tunes 
that play throughout your quest and 
have you reaching for the volume 
switch on your monitor. 

There are a number of sound effects 
within the adventure and even though 
they're fairly sparse, the quality of them 
is worth shouting about. If you could 
only take a listen to the waves lapping 
onto the heach on the very first screen, 
you'd know just how good they are. 

Sound -wise, I can't really fault King's 
Quest 6 because what's in there is ade- 
quate enough to please the average 
gamer,

There have beeo a lot of famous "Kings" over the years. I'm not talking about monarchy, but 
here are my two favourites. 

3B King is a US hlues guitarist, singer and songwriter and was one of the most influential elec- 
tric-guitar players of the 1960's His albums include Slues is King (1967), Lucille Talks Back (197l>) 
and Blues 'n' ten (1933). 

Martin Luther King Jr was a US civil-rights campaigner, black leader and Baptist minister, He 
was one of the organisers of a protest in 1963 where 200,000 people marched to Washington DC 
to demand racial equality. 

An advocate of non-violence, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 King was assassi- 
nated four years later by James Earl Ray in Memphis, Tennessee. 



Adventure fans will be delighted that Sierra have 
finally decided to release the sixth adventure in 
the King's Quest series onto the Amiga 

After such a long time away from 
Commodore's machine Sierra might have been 
weary of going back to it. but they needn't have 
worried because, hopefully, King's Quest 6 
should get the recognition it deserves from the 
general pub ic. 

The game comes on 10 disks, so you'd think 
that a hard drive is pretty much an essential piece 
of kit. Well ft is, but for those non-hard drive 
owners the disk swapping is kept to an absolute 
minimum and for this little factor 1 applaud 
Sierra, 

As far as adventure games go, they don't get 
much better than this. With its brilliant graphics, 
a fairy-tale of a plot, superb playability and a 
level of addiction that will keep you coming back 
for more and more. King's Quest 6 is an adven- 
ture that should have a place in everyone's 
games collection. 

Buy it or you'll regret it, maybe not today...

coking back at Bullfrog's softogrsphy, all I can 
tee are high-quality pieces of software. Games 
like the Populous series, Powermonger and 
more recently Syndicate, have all been tremen- 
dous successes, but coming your way very soon is per- 
haps Bullfrog's finest creation yet. 

Along with Ocean's TFX and Inferno, Theme Parit is 
being tipped, by those in the know, for the game of 
the year award. Who knows* perhaps if there was one 
Bullfrog could even walk away with a game of the 
decade award! OK, I could be blowing Bullfrog's trum- 
pet too soon, but I have high hopes for Theme Park. 

HYPE 

It could just be a case of good 'ol fashioned com- 
puter industry hype that's making everyone go Theme 
Park crazy. I cite Street Fighter 2 as one example which 
had an advertising campaign that was better than the 
actual product. 

Bullfrog haven't advertised Theme Park though, so 
why is it scr eagerly awaited? The answer is simple 
Word of mouth. The only game an everyone's lips 
within the games industry is Theme Park- 

Take a look at Bullfrog's first software sensation. 


Populous. An original and 
addictive title that arrived 
amongst a sea of mediocre 
shoot-'em-ups and platform- 
ers, It completely changed 
the way games were perceived by the people who 
bought them and more importantly by the people who 
created them, .. 

Theme Park could welt have the same effect over the 
computer games world that Populous achieved five 
years ago. The software industry is leaning slightly 
towards the production of licensed platformers and 
shoot-'em-ups because these types of game sell incredi- 
bly well with the general public. 

I know it is hard to tome up with ideas for original 


products because everything seems to have been done 
before, but it's still no excuse. It's this originality that 
will, hopefully, turn Theme Park into a raging success 
story, 

You take the role of a nephew who has inherited a 
fortune from his rich, but eccentric Aunt, However, 
there is a catch involved - he must build the world' 1 , 
biggest and most profitable theme park. 

SIMULATION 

Bullfrog have combined all the fun of creating your 
own theme park with a business simulation, Theme 
Park is the first game in Bullfrog's "Designer Series" 
and the aim is to broaden the traditional appeal of sim- 
ulation programs by combining accurate simulation

technology with gaming elements. 

Top dog it Bullfrog, Peter Molyneux, explains why 
Theme P^ric is the beginning of a new era in gaming 
"While the Designer Series has its roots in techniques 
refined and honed over our previous releases, the busi 
ness simulation side is a new direction for Bullfrog. 

"We are confident that it is better than anything 
comparable currently on the market, so we intend to 
use it as a basis for a series of programs." 

Your theme park must compete against 40 other 
parks and as your park becomes more profitable, these 
competitors will attempt to buy shares in the park and 
try to take ft over, thus finishing your career.

Theme Park is, not only do you have to decide on

entrance fees and salaries, but you have to determine 
things such as how much salt to put on the chips in the 
chip shop. 

There is a reason for all this seasoning mslarfcy 
because the more salt you put on the thirstier the visi- 
tors will become, therefore they will start to buy more 
of your cola. 

Theme Park is 3 highly original product and for me 
that counts for a lot in today's current games climate. 
It's already received an abundance of high review 
scores from the PC games magazines and I'm in no 
doubt that it'll achieve the same kind of success on the 
Amiga. Theme Park wifi arrive in this office next month 
and already I’Ve got a smile op my face. 


Park life 

There are a couple of different ways to play 
Theme Park. The first, Sandbox, is the most 
basic. This involves the creation of a park and 
all you have to do is make sure the visitors are 
happy and safe. 

For those who fancy a bit more of a chal- 
lenge there is the Business Simulation option. 
This full-blown business simulator challenges 
you to not only build a park, but run it as a 
successful business, incorporating marketing, 
forging contracts and negotiating staff 
wages. 

There are 32 purpose-built rides to choose 
from, and six user-definable rides that include 
race car and helter-skelter rides. You can add 
corkscrews, laop-the-loops and decide on the 
speed of the rides. Each rid c will have its own 
"wow" factor and the visitor's reactions will 
give you a dear idea of how successful your 
rides are. 

Positioning a chip shop too dose to a ride 
that is too fast could end up with visitors 
regurgitating their last meal, or even being 
thrown off the ride. 

If incidents like the aforementioned one 
continue then the park's reputation will suf- 
fer and it'll start attracting hordes of thugs 
These vicious louts will beat up the visitors 
and vandalise the rides. However, to combat 
this menace, security guards can be employed 
to evict any unwanted visitors. 

As well as security, you can hire mainte- 
nance men ta repair the odes, handymen to 
pick up litter and entertainers who Can be 
dressed in a variety of costumes to keep the 
queues happy and contented. 

I guess this is one of ThEme Park's biggest 
attractions. There is no blood, no evil aliens 
from the planet Zarkfon, no platform jump- 
ing cutesy creatures - there is only the job in 
hand of keeping your visitors merry. 



Oh no, disaster strikes! The run has gone 
away and so have your Theme Park visitors

increasing decisions you'll be set to send the bulldozers 
in. Some of the first operations you'll |2 
perform are to make sure your would-be city has an 
ample water and electricity supply. 

As you build different industrial complexes and 
housing estates, each has to be connected to your main 
grid - f si I ure to do so wlJJ mean that little will be bnift. 

As well as ensuring that power reaches your lucky 
Populace, you'll need to ensure that a road or rail sys- 
tem is in effect so that your population can move to 
work and back (rat race syndrome reaches computer 
games). 

As you've probably gathered, Sim City 2000 is going 
to capture just about every reality conceivable to city 
life. But r it will begin to speculate about society once 
you proceed past the year 2500. 

The game should then start featuring massive city 
blocks which house thousands and include their own 
environment and feature waterfalls and forests. 

Also included should be the disaster option. This will 
give you an option of including natural and man-made 
disasters into the equation. These could vary as widely 
as floods and tornados, through tD plane crashes and

alien monsters attacking your city, 

Viewed isometrically with the illusion of the player 
looking from quite a height the Amiga versions should 
differ very little to their PC or Macintosh counterparts. 
The graphics on the latter machines were small but 
incredibly sharp and accurate, with many animated 
sections. 

EFFECTS 

For example, trains should trundle towards their 
destinations and the cars wiN swarm up and down the 
highways like many ants. 

The games control is entirely mouse driven with the 
user clicking on and off icons and menu bars. This 
should make play easy to manipulate and quick to 


respond. It seems from other versions that have 
been released that Sum City is shaping up to be a 
massive hit with Amiga owners, CD32 owners 
could wet! be in store for even dizzier heights if 
the conversion features the footage that the CD- 
ROM version includes. 

I r for one, am looking forward to creating 
sprawling condominiums of the future and wait 
with industrial gloves and builders jeans sliding 
down my rear quarters for its imminent release, 


One of your tasks is to keep your populace 
smiling. Their feelings are reflected through 
newspapers, which as well as informing you 
of events occuring in neighbouring towns, 
will keep you abreast of feelings in your Own 
metropolis. 

To keep a 
grin firmly in place 
you'll be able to 
build parks and 
small wooded areas 
of land to create a 
feeling of space. 
You'll also have an 
option on parks, loos 
and other stadium- 
orientated pastimes. 

But, how are you sup- 
posed to encourage people tD 
move to your new town to play in the parks 
and zoos and work in your factories? Well, 
you'll be able to connect yogr city with other 
cities via road r rail and eventually via the air. 

Once your population starts to boom and 
your central business districts begin to take 
off, you'll have to start injecting money into 
educational institutions such as colleges, 
museums and libraries.

res pend well. The body of the joystick is slight . 
longer than most sticks- and the fire-buttons seem u 
be further away, but the Cruiser fits snugly into you* 
hand dnd after a while you forget it's ever there. A 
highly recom mended buy and one of my favour^ 
" sticks' * of aft-time. 


The Cruiser is rapidly becoming a firm favourite 
with games-players. There are two styles of Cruiser; 
one is decked out all in black while its brother is 
perhaps the brightest joystick you could ever buy. 

Pastel shades of green, yellow, blue and pink 
cover the joystick and even though it might make 
the average gamesp layer regurgitate his/her last 
meal, it certainly performs well. 

This is down to the unique three-way power con- 
trol dial situated at the bottom of the shaft. This 
makes the shaft looser or suffer and can be varied 
depending on the type of game you're playing. The 
stick and its buttons are fully micro-switched and

the moves more precisely. 

Also available from th e Competition Pro Series is the Competition Pro Extra. This 
■of the Pro 5000 which, normally, is coloured the standard 


is a transparent version 
black and red. The Pro Extra contains the additional feature of an auto-fire button 
giving mega- blast rapid fire, short rapid burster single shot. 

The two large fire but- 
tons provide ease of use 
for both right and left- 
hand operation. For 
some with smaller hands 
though, it becomes quite 
a strain to keep your 
thumb stretched onto 
the stick. Both joysticks 
are good all-rounders 
that promise durability. 


Quite possibly the most papular joystick ever created. Just ^ 
about everyone I know has got one and that's simply 
because if handles like a dream. 

No matter what type of game you're playing, the 
Zpst-k puts n a startling performance Whether ,► jHgagJ

Cruiser Turbo 


This is very much like its cousins, the Cruiser Multi- 
Colour and the Cruiser Black, but it has one dis- 
tinct advantage and that is the turbo/rapid 
auto-fire option, 

This tittle beast is only really useful when play- 
ing shoot-'em-ups for that little bit of extra and 
faster fire-power, but for this type of game it 
really is a god-send, 

The Cruiser Turbo is very comfy, fits in the hand 
nicely and responds very well, thanks to its eight- 
way micro-switches. The Cruiser Turbo also has the 
evec-so useful three-way variable tension control, 


Apart from the auto-fire cption r this Cruiser isn't 
much different from its counterparts, but if fast 
fancy firing is your "thang" then I guess this is the 
joystick of your dreams - but bear in mind that rt 
does cost you a little more. 



ISlTii 




Cheetah Mach 1 £10.99 


This IS quite a large joystick but very easy to 
use nevertheless. The long, gripped handle 
fits nicely into the palm of the hand, with 
comfortable ridges to place year fin 
gers round, The two fire buttons 
are located conveniently at the 
very top and around the side of 
the stick. 

An additional two buttons are 
provided on the base and the 
eight directional micrOSwitChed 
control feels light and very- 
responsive. 

The auto-fire button is placed on 
the base but it sometimes seems to fa 
halfway between the two without even 



touching it. The joystick also makes a worry- 
ing. metal on plastic clicking noise when 
you're playing a game that requires fast 
joystick work. 

Games that require a fast response but 
don't need absolute precision Will benefit 
from this joystick as it is very light on the 
controls, it is comfortable to hold but 
doesn't really feel as though it will last. 


Navigatir £15.99 




Perhaps the most unusual looking joystick out of this little batch and even 
though it looks like something out of Star Trek, it does work surpris- 
ingly well. This stick has been specifically ergonomically designed so 
that it ensures a perfect fit, no matter how big or small your hands 
are. 

It is unlike your average joystick and it will take a while before 
you get into the swing of controlling it. It as perfect for shoot-'em 
ups as the fire- button is placed right next to your trigger finger, 

The Navigator is fully micro-switched and has a, and I quote, 

"unbreakable 


robust steel shaft, it cer- 
tainly won't appeal to 
every gamesolayer, but l 
expect that most of you will be 
pleasantly surprised at how well it 
performs, 

The Navigator is one of those 
sticks that you're either going to 
love to bits or hate to death and I seriously recommend 
that you try it out before you buy.. 



Along with the Navigator, the Speed King has its joy- 
stick shaft placed directly on top of its main body. 
This style of joystick might not go down too well 
with the computer purist, but 1 think you'll be more 
than happy with its overall performance. 

The Speed King is ergonomically designed to fit 
snugly in your hands. It's fully micro- switched and 
thus responds well to your joystick movements. The 
fire-button is ideally situated on the side of the joy- 
stick body and can be easily accessed whenever it is 
required. 

The Speed King won't suit everyone's tastes and it 
isn't the most beautiful joystick out on the mar- 
ket but it's so easy to handle and has such a bril- 
liant name that I heartily recommend it

ames characters aren't exactly the first 
things that spring to mind when contem- 
plating the mysteries of the universe, put 
they are really quite an intriguing subject to 

explore. 

Have you ever wondered how programmers 
develop a sprite for a game? Have you considered 
why some characters become almost household 
names while others fall into the pits of failure, or 
even worse, insignificance? 

Wonder no more as System probe the minds of 
some of the best programmers, designers and artists 
from so^e of the country's top software houses. 

Perhaps the first aspect to consider is the appeal of 
the character, but this is an indefinable value that is 
hard to judge. It is obviously a very difficult thing to 
pin down and a lot is down to personal taste. 

If software houses knew a set formula for what 
guarantees appeal then there would be not one duff 
game on the shelves and some very wealthy pro- 
grammers! This is obviously not the case, so what do 
software companies look for? 

Millennium's PR manager, Keith Smith, gives these

Q 


guidelines: “The audience 
must be able to believe - no 
matter how far they stretch 

Q their imagination - that this 

character identifies with 
them. 

"For example, Zig and Zag 
are aliens, but they have the 
attitude of two boisterous 
young boys. Beavis and 
Butthead are two teenagers 
M who have slightly more adult 

WW appeal. You have to look at 

the intended audience and 
say 'Does this have natural 
appeal?" 1 

Simon McCormack of 
Codemasters sees it like this: 
"for a game aimed at 
younger players, the character 
should be simple and fun, 
more magical than streetwise. 
Characters for older 
players need more 
about them, elements of humour, slap- 
stick, pie in your face, the way 
enemies are disposed of, a 
hip attitude, a hit 
of destruction, explo- 
sions, speed, a 
guest. Hopefully, the 
player sees him/her- 
self as the character 
-identifies with it." 

Whatever shape 
the character takes 
on, from simple 
blobs to beauti- 
fully animated 
creatures, they must 
be believable and have a 
personality. Whether it is 


a cool, streetwise attitude or cute and loveable, pe j 
sonality is vital. 

"Character is the fundamental basis for a good 
design - unless you actually want something blar; 
and two-dimensional. Stance and expression have t: 
be explored to show the qualities you want to po r 
tray," explained Toby Card of Core Design, 

This is one way in which bought licences have a* 
advantage- their personality has already been estab- 
lished, usually in a cartoon, for example. 

They also have an established market hut cost the 
software house a great deal of money in royalties 
and can restrict development in trying to stick 
closely to the original to keep fans of the 
character happy. 

Getting back to humble begin- 
nings though, it's the ease of 
the Chicken and the Egg - 
well, more precisely the sprite 
and the game. Which comes 
first? Where does a company 
start on the road to designing a sprite? 

Is there a strong character in mind from the 
start or is it built to fit the concept of the 
game? 

Core Design's Guy Miller states; "Invariably, 
the characters evolve as the game progresses, 
sometimes so much so that the original 
character sketches bear little or no 
resemblance to the finished product," 

Paul Green, -designer and graphic 
artist for Gremlin points out; "'You can't just produce 
a game based on a few sketches of the main charac- 
ter, neither can you have a game idea and plonk any 
old character into that realm. It's a fine blend of 
both, which must be refined and sorted time after 
time until you've got the mix completely right."

MARKETING 

Even when the end game is looking good, market- 
ing is crucial and could make the difference between 
success and failure. It's obviously easier to market 
an existing character like the cartoon characters, 
but for a new character it is important that they 
are strong enough to sell the game. 

“A good, strong character can be an excellent 
hook on which to market the game and I think 
it's vital that the game has goad, strong charac- 
ters because, initially at least, the punter may 
only have these to go an - the characters as 
shown on the box cover," explained 
Guy Miller. Once a company has the suc- 
cessful character - the vital ingredients 
that make it a winner 
and the game has 
been well mar- 
keted, then what? 
Should they sit 
back in the satis- 
faction of a job 
well done or 
go further, 
stretching 
their character and

give us their insights on what they believe to 
be their big success stories, 

'todemastBrs' Dizzy is a simple character, 
yet very Successful, and has been adapted to 
play in every type of game. He has a personal 
tty and a background which help to bring him 
alive in the game, yet his. simplicity means he is 
adaptable to many forms." - Simon 
McCormack, Codemasters. 

"James Pond obviously was successful. Here 
we have a game that stars a secret agent that is 
a Cod, In James Pond 3 he is running around 
the Moon, which stretches the realms of belief 
right to the limit. Pinkie has already proved 
himself to be a good property, because he 
reflects nineties values." - Keith Smith, 
Millenium. 

"'The Battletoads were incredibly successful 
in the states - probably because they rode on 
the backs of the Turtles phenomena., which was 
much bigger in the US than over here. 

'It was just a matter of being in the right 
pFace at the right time with the right well- 
designed characters in their own we 1 1 -designed 
game. Success in this business is largely down 
to Fuck - that and having lots of money to 
begin with - to get the product to as wide an 
audience as possible, - - Guy Miller, Core 
Design. 

"Rick Dangerous, well, I'm pleased with him, 
he made it to a sequel and across six formats, 
He was likeable, funny and the game had 
plenty of twists and turns that made you go 
back to it for just one more go." - $imon 
Phipps, Core Design.

The unlikely dijMttfr of a 
fish has proved incredibly 
tucrnjfvl for Millennium 

pushing it into other fields? 
On the one hand, if you 
a good character and 
another company want to use it 
to endorse their products then 
al I is wd I and good - both pa r- 
tSes reap rewards from the 
deal and sell more of their 
products. But on the other 
hand, in the extreme it could 
have a detrimental effect on 
the minds of the young. 
Views within the industry on this 
are mixed to say the least. Simon Phipps of Core 
Design stated: "We must make the choice as to 
whether we wish them to grow up as individuals, 
capable of making informed choices, or whether they 
will grow up the eternal prey of the marketing men," 
According to Paul Green from Gremlin; "You have to 
capitalise On the market. It may sound cut-throat but 
after all, every company is in existence to make 
money. 11 

'Why can't game characters become commercial 
property in other fields? Twelve years ago you 
couldn't move for p Six million dollar man' merchan- 
dise, and eight years ago who could ignore the 
Smu rfs or the Womb les ? 

"Everyone is up in arms because we are guilty in 
their eyes of polluting children^ minds but 
rt r s only the medium that's changed. Instead of cereal 
packets ifs now computer games," said Keith Smith 
of Millennium, Taking all these aspects into account 
it is apparent 
that software 
houses have huge 
obstacles to over- 
come in design- 


ing games characters. They are up against an 
increasingly choosy public and have to 
compete against all the other releases 
that hit the shelves. They have to be 
spot on every time, especially in a 
market where mistakes prove 
very costly, and must move 
with the times ahd 
with current trends 
which change con- 
stantly. 

Giving an inani- 
mate picture a personality 
and making it come alive is 
fundamental in producing a 
good character and they must achieve this in their 
design. All these are pretty tall orders and take great 
time and thought to get exactly right. 5 q, next time 
you pick up a game it's worth considering just what 
has gone into the design of the character.

Hot on the tail of the floppy format (reviewed Amiga 
Compute Issue 76} d Core Design have pressed the 
play button on the £D32 version. 

The storyline remains the same - it's the age of 
Ragnarofc. Odin tells of a place called the Hall of Worlds 
where you can travel from one dimension to the next via 
portals. 

While in one of these worlds, 0dm is presented with a talisman which freezes the 
wearer. Unfortunately, Odin smashes the talisman and throws it into four different 
portals. 

Heimdall, hero of the piece, is selected to try and find the pieces, and thus freeze 
the ever mischievous Lola 

While the storyline's the same, the graphics have been spruced up. Now resplen 
dent in 256 colour, the CD32 version rather obviously outshines it's floppy counter 
part - and this is saying something because the normal A5QQ version is colourful 
enough, The other significant difference is the musical accompaniment. This has been 

totally revamped for CD

Eye of the Beholder 2 


Treading down the precarious RPG dungeon-type foot- 
prints of its older brother comes Eye of the Beholder. 
Obviously a sequel, Eye of the Beholder starts where its 
relative left off. 

The story places you at the foot of a forest on your way 
to a temple controlled by a religious cult. Once you're 
inside the temple of Darkmoon the cult send you on a mis- 
sion to find someone in the forest 

The forest section is well animated and gives your 


format and sounds brilliant 
It's a kind of movie mon- 
tage where Spartacus 
meets Robin Hood {Kirk 
Douglas meets Errol Flynn, 
interesting - Ed) and adds 
loads of atmosphere. 

Heimdall 2 is filled with 
playability and blends a 
nice combination of puz- 
zles, combat and magic 
with Norse mythology - 
which makes a pleasant 
change from ores, hobbits 
and all Tolkein's other 
Middle- Earth bores. 

If l had a criticism it would be directed towards the control system. You can't really 
single Core out as responsible for this though. I'm afraid the guilty finger points 
towards Commodore. 

In designing a joypad all pad and no |0y — that would have Punce Charles 
screaming carbuncle, Commodore have rendered it impossible for software houses to 
produce easily playable g^mes, 

Anyway, that aside, Core Design have released a highly enjoyable, if tricky, 3D iso- 
metric adventure. CD32 owners haven't had much to shout about yet,

why? 


characters chance to build i 
their strengths up a little, 

Once your four adventurers 
have completed this little 
task you can go for a romp in 
the dungeons that lie below the 
temple. 

So far as play is concerned. Eye of the Beholder 2 is lit- 
tle different to many other RPG titles. It employs similar 
systems to Dungeon Master for magic, combat , view and 
just about every other control you could think of. 

This doesn't make for a poor game though, because 
Eye of the Beholder 2 is a quality bit of slashing and sway- 
ing. The graphics are very well drawn, if a little juddery, 
and the effects, while limited, are extremely clear and 
concise. 

Perhaps a minor criticism might be that It's a little lin- 
ear and restrictive, and doesn't really allow you to explore 
without finding something and knocking hell out of it. 

But, aside from this. Eye of the Beholder 2 is a classic 
investment for any lover, neigh admirer 
even, of this genre.

office 


Frequently 

asked 

questions 


Q How do you arrange a PO &o* 
number? 


A The first step is to call your local Post 
Office and ask for the munber of the local 
district Customer Services Dept- They 
give you the number and you can then call 
Customer Services and get a run down of 
the current conditions and charges It used 
to be £M per year. 


Q Is It worth getting VAT registered? 


A, Ydu are not liable for VAT until your 
ean^ngs have reached a certain level, snd 
quite a high level at thai You can register 
for VAT before you reach that level but it's 
not advisable as you then have to charge 
VAT to your customers and get VAT receipts, 
plus, you have to do your VAT returns every 
three months 

It's a messy business and best left alone 
until it becomes necessary Your accountant 
can advise you on this subject. 


o should you get ah accountant? 


A Yes They cost very little and save you 
huge amounts of tax money. Not only that, 
the tax office is more likely to beliwe your 
accountant that you haven't earned- any 
money IN* year fran they are you. 

Getting an accountant costs nothing, 
you only pay when they do your accounts, 
and all through the year before and after 
that they are on hand to give you advice 
whenever you get a scary letter from the 
TAX w DHSS peopte- Accountants are worth 
their weight in money. 


O Where can I get advice on 
designing my business plan? 


A Any high street bank will have a financial 
advisor who will be happy to advise you on 
any aspect of starting and running a 
business. 


Setting up 


O . he world is changing every 
ft day and more people are 
f taking the hint that new 
technology could transform: theif 
lives. Some of them are setting up offices at 
home, so they can spend a more relaxed 
time working from home once in a while It 
lakes the stress out of high pressure jobs 
and boosts productivity. 

For those in high pressure jabs which 
don't allow working from home. The option 
to go freelance (and the hell with emf is an 
nice way out Bui can you do this using 
your Arraga, and how do you start to pur 
Together a home office? Well. I can tell you 
because I did it. 

Working from home sounds like such an 
idyl fie thing to do. doesn t itT The fridge is 
only a few steps away, full of cod beets and 
that nice ham you got from Samsburys the 
other day which would sit beautifully on 
that crusty bread. 

You can step out in the fresh an for a 
second if you like, sit with your feet up on 
the desk, play NucrearTrooserpress Invaders 
until the cows come home, right? Weil, 
ctoy so you ha-v« to do work too. but you 
can choose when and where you do it, 
right? 

The thing is that working from home is a 
blessing and a curse. You can do all of the 
above and more, but you also have to find 
work, do work, issue invoices, chase money 
and then start the whole degrading process

over again. Plus you have to find the time to 
do your accounts, pay your m and national 
insurance, maintain your equipment figure 
out how much you >e getbng paid and if 
thafs more or less Than your outgoings, 
think about the future of your business and 
how to make rt grow, and occasionally you 
might get a weekend off 

So let's take this slowly. First question 
What dD you need? 

Well a computer 'would be nice Oh look, 
I've got ah Amiga, wilt that do? Of course it 
will, meathead It's the finest (and cheapest! 
graphically stunning, fast multitasking 
computer that money can buy 
Well, that 1 s that then, job done. Now 
where s the newspaper Hold on, what if 
someone wants to send me a fax? Offices 
have them, you know. 

Fan modems are all over the place, and 
this kills two birds with one stone. First it 
gives you fax capability very cheaply, 
Secondly it gives you a nice fait modem, 
whrcti is the key tool »f you wish to be a 
work-ac-home bod or a telecommuter. 

Fax modems are just like normal ones 


except they have a special chip set which 
allows them to be used (with appropriate 
software) as a fax machine 

Tlbe two really worth looking at are 
cither the US Robotics Sportster 1 4,450 of 
the Supra 1 4.400 Fax modem. Ydu get a 
brilliant fax plus a sprightly r 4.400 baud 
modem, and both are now under £ 1 50. ir 
is definitely worth shelling cu t the extra, as 
slow moderns cost you money rn the long 

Tldrt, 


UOIlt (T1H11 


It's worth mentioning the GVF 
PhonePak, as this solves a number of 
problems in one easy card that slips into a 
Ion o Slot. It's a fax machine, but it's also an 
answering machine and a folly configunadic- 
votce mail system. With it you can create 
voice mail boxes, or a fuiy-autornated help 
line, for use with touch tone phones. 

One of the next things you will need is a 
printer for sending letters, printing out 
headed paper and doing artwork for 
business cards etc In this day and age a 
dot matrix Just doesn't cut it as the all round 



If only I knew then 


I ve been running my own business r*ow for about five years and I had to learn all this 
stun from scratch So what advice would I pass on if asked? IR hard to knew where to

Workout a monthly budget. Write down on a sheet everything you need

pennies left over id buy essentials I ke food and compact discs.

OK, $0 they aren't too bat:' in Colour., but 
-v the price of colour mlyets is coming 
: xvn you really don't Kwe to think about 
them. If you want a black and white prrnter, 

- ' for either a Canon Bubbldet HJ20 or 
Hewieti Packard DeskJet 55.0 

In colour go for either the Canon BU Or the 
HP DeskJet colour inkjets, or even the A3 
""■'rdefs from the same makers. After that 
(Wu're in Jaser printer territory, and J hate to 
say t but the Appre Personal LaserWriters look 
■fry nice for the price. 

Ah. but is a big box machine necessary? A 
ot of this stuff seems to run on Zonro cards 
and the tike. so do you need a 2CKKL 3000 or 
’•000 to run a home office. No, not really. 

Most of the applications a re just as happy 
>n a base level Amiga as they are m a topnDf- 
tbe-range workstation, you can run just as 
good a business on a 1 ZOO as you can on a 
4000. 

Once you get started wrth software it's 
Paid to know where to stop For example, do 
you need a DTP program like Professional 
Page, or wl! a word publisher like Wordworch 
or Pinal Copy do? 

It depends realty on what you have in 
rT iind Most word publishers wilt be okay for 
correspondence |esp«iaJly with a nice inkjet 
orinteg, and perhaps a simple newsletter, but 
for .magazines and more advanced textual 
ff po f ng and jiggling, you'fi need the services 
of a DTP program. 

One bp. if you do use a DTP program, limit 
yourself fo two fonts - one for headline; and 
one for main texts. [This is an Amiga 
Computing Instant Design Sense Tip: just add 
water . } 

On the more serious side, spreadsheets 
and databases are used by a Jot of home 
based businesses to keep tabs on the 
accounts and products, if indeed you actually 
make something to keep tabs on 

Both the major pieces of software, Kipcead 
4 and Superbase 4, incorporate the ability to 


import and export files to and from the 
industry standard program; on other 
platforms, like Lotus 1-2=3, dBase and Excef. 

This means whatever systems are 
installed at the site you are working for. 
you can pretty much send and receive data 
from them. Obviously the level of 
compatibility only extends to a limited 
range of commands, but for most purposes 
tin; won't oresent too many emblem;. 

Gome nn-LifiE 

For example you don't use EVERY word 
in the English language arl the time, do 
you? So why would you use every SQL 
term or 1 -2-3 command? 

So (S it worth being cm GX and 
CompuServe? Berng pan of an on*fine 
service rj invaluable for two reasons - being 
abfe to talk to peop le when you're stuck at 


home working all day, and for getting 
contacts for work. A/though CompuServe is 
a trrfle more expensive than QX, it's worth 
being on CompuServe if you are in business 
consultancy, PS or marketing, because of 
the wealth of up-to-date infottnatiDn you 
can buy on all these topics. 

CompuServe costs SS 95 per month |as 
it s based in the USf, and there are on-line 
charge; during the day until after 7pm 
when the basic connect time a Free, and on 
fop of that you have to pay for anything 
other than oasic services on 3n hourly rate. 

CIX has a LZ5 registration fee, plus a 
connection charge of E2.5Q per hour off 
peak and G 60 per hour peak rate. 

It's worth being on Deiron internet too. 
as this has a registration fee of E I Z 5 plus a 
flat rate of E f0 per month This allows you 
full access to ail the internet resources and 


Phil South iDohs at 
the perils and 
pleasures, the pitfalls 
and problems of 
taking all gour work 
home to an Amiga 


Up and running 



Usenet News in a fnendfy and cost effective 
way. 

Qnce you've got ail the hardware and 
software together, the rest is up to you. The 
business you are in can be anything, but 
your Amiga wifi be able Co help you stay 
efficient and cost effective. 

It costs you nothing to Feed your Amiga 
and allows you to produce a huge amount 
of productive work That’S the basri of a 
sound home office, 


what I know now 

month to hi t your target Ignore this advice at your perif. as you wilt go under in a couple of 
month; unless you are hitting those rargets 

Make work pfans. Figure out how much time each jidb will take and Stick to i t Don [ leave 
jobs till' the last minute. Keep everything, especially receipts for stuff you buy for the 
business. This wll stand you in good stead when you come to do yOUf accounts, 

Write down an your rdess in a b*g notebook If you don't wrrtc them down you wirl forget 
them, and nJeas are money fn the bank 

Get an answering machine and use it’ if peop*e cam get hold of you they won’t give you 
the work, 

And fmaify take notice of health issues. Srtting at a computer arl day is bad for you. Take 
regular breaks, make sure you're sitting comfortably at the computer and that there is 
enough l#ght m the room so you don't develop a squint .

TUTOR 1 R l 


O ast month we looked at the 

Amiga and some erf Ihfi software 
tools needed for desktop video 
production. Now aur attention 
turns to those peripherals which are essential 
for getting images in and out of ytxif Amiga. 

I m fully aware that the Amiga I 200 we 
are taking as our example machine has both 
composite and RF video outputs available, 
and pretty good they are too. 

If you simply want to -record graphics from 
your Amiga to video tape - or just watch 
them on IV- then there's no reason to start 
worrying about buying a genlock, because 
you obviously don't need one. 

It s when you want to start putting 
computer graphics over video images that 
you should start thinking about gentocks 
and, short of investing in a pretty heavy-duty 
vision mixer and timebase corrector |TK| 
setup with good keying facilities, there's no 
easy way to overlay Amiga graphics onto 
video without one. 

In order to mi* graphics with video it is 
essential that the timing of the .Amiga's video 
display is matched exactly to that of the 
incoming video signal 
This rs a major part of a genlock's I’short 
for Generate Lock} function, and works by 
extracting timing information from the video 
signal and then sending corresponding 
puher to the Amiga via its external clock 
mput in order ta synchronise the computer 
to the video signal. 

Many better-constnxted genlocks don t 
necessarily require a video input to be 
present |a genlock can also be used to 
encode' the Amiga's RGB output into a 


Connecting up a genlock is easy, but 
you need some extra video 
equipment to use one- Obviously the 
kind of genlock you bay depends as 
much on what you have to spend as 
the quality and features you with to 
obtain. 

Of the cheaper, composite video 
genlocks, the only one f would 
recommend for less than EIOO 
would be Lola Electronic s LSOO 
MlnIGEN, if you need something 0 
bit more flexible take a look at the 
€t49 LI 00 MiniPftO (again from 
Lola], 

a know that the RocGen genlocks 
are quite popular, but t wouidrt t 
personally recommend them as I ve 
always found their quality and 
operation to be inferior to 
comparably-priced (or sometimes 
cheaper!; devices. 

As far as YfC genlocks go, check 
out GVP't G-Loch (around E?40| or 
Electronic Design s Y/C Genlock 
[E399], both of which offer pretty 
good value for money nowadays. Of 
course there are also other models 
available. 




Picture 


in 


Canj UJhitelM continues his 
home uideo escapades 
bq showing qou 
how to min in 
the graphics 


signal which can be recorded by a VCR| 
because they have what rs known as a ‘free 
run' mode. 

However, it is usually better to feed the 
genlock with video so that it really does get 
the proper timing signals Cheaper, and less 
weikJesigned genlocks requrre a video 
signal to be constantly present - which can 
be a pain rf you don't otherwise need to 
have one available. 

Once the Amiga is locked to the video 
signal me next operation a genlock 
performs is to overlay the Amiga's graphics 
onto the incoming video images. 

HIV tOlOUR 

This is done by 'keying' - in 
other words by replacing certain 
areas of the Amiga graphics with 
video images - usually by using a 
designated cotour as the key 
COkHir. 

The most commonfyHJsed key 
colour is palette Colour Zero - the first 
cotour in any Amiga colour palette. Tiki 
Is the default background colour in 
Deluxe faint and most other graphics 
and presentation programs, and is often 
black or dark blue (though the actual hue 
doesn't matter in the Peast| 

A genlock reads the information coming 
out of the Amiga's Zero Detect line, and 
every time it finds that a pixel contains 
Colour Zero it quickly switches the output 
signal to the video image. rather than the 
non-Colour Zero Amiga graphic which 
would otherwise be output from the 
genlock. 

This swrttblng occurs very rapidly as the 
complete video screen is scanned from top 
to bottom every I /25th of a second, and 
results in the Amiga graphic being keyed 
(or, more correctly, key switched} over the 
video images. More sophisticated genlock 


effects are also possi ble, and circuitry can 
be incorporated to produce inverse Keymg 
(video only shows where nornColour Zero 
graphic! occur|. user-controlled fading 
between graphics and video, and also Che 
ability to select palette colours other than 
Colour Zero to be the key colour. 

Some genlocks even incorporate simple 
wipe patterns, but to my mind these are 
mostly relatively expensive gimmicks which 
have Fiftte or no real artistic value. 

One important aspect of choosing a 
genlock is to ensure that it is compatible 
with both your Amiga and your video 
equipment, As far as the A 1 200 goes, it is 
only possible to use external-mounting 
genlocks with it, ruling out those models 


which mount internally into the box-shaped 
Amigas - the 1 500/2000/3000/4000 
ranges, 

If you have S-VHS or Video 8 equipment 
you should obtain a genlock with Y/C 
connections in order to obtain the best 
possible quality If not you’ll probably end 
up with a composite-only one which will 
tend to degrade your video images, making 
them muddier and hence somewhat less 
viewable 

t guess there have been times when 
you've wondered how you can capture an 
image and then use it m an Amiga graphics 
or animation program. 

In fact, there are a couple Df different 
ways of doing this - namely video digitising 



I U I □ H I fl L 


and picture out

do M«d m go ad video enure*, part icularty 
urban timing ilow mean digitrsorv, 


and irnage Manning As we are particularly 
Interested in capturing from video 111 just 
mention that scanning involves reading a 
printed' .image with a device somewhat akin 
to a reversed photocopier which converts the 
image into digital data that a computer can 
understarid. 

A good flat-twd scanner, along with the 
software to drive it, can easily cost over £800, 
so scanners aren't likely to be a popular Item 
amongst stony broke video makers, 

DIGITISERS 

On the other hand, while quite cheap, 
hand-scanners are unlikely to provide either 
the image size or quality needed tar video 
work, so the only viable alternative is a video 
digitiser 

Like genlocks, digitisers come in a rarige of 
flavours and prices, The cheapest ones start at 
well under £ too and offer reasonable-looking 
grabbing jas it rs often knownf, put at the 
expense of qua% and speed - and they 


require a video deck with a rock-solid fnwze- 
frame. 

However, not everyone needs cop-quality 
images and with an AGA machine such as the 
A I ZOO me results can stifl look excellent. So Jf 
your budget is tight, and you want Y/C 
compatibility. Consider Rombo's Vidi Amiga 1 2 
as a good bet 

! f you want better quality 'and you should 
think about adding more RAM to your Al ZOO 
if that's the case - (hen a fast scanning, high- 
quality digitiser should do the irrcfc. 

Fast scan digitisers can grab a whole frame 
of video in real-time because of special 
memory incorporated into them, whereas 
srow scan models only grab a chunk at a 
time. 

Rombo offers two fast scan models - she 
m Amiga 1 2RT [£ 1 99| and the 24RT f£299f, 
the mam difference &emg that the 1 2RT 
cannot g rab in interlaced modes. 

Again, with an Al 20fl this probably 
doesn f matter much and you'll save £1 DO by

buying the 1 2l?T, There rs also an external 
version of MacroSystem's VLad card ,|tfie 
VLab PAR - £302| which casts a bit more 
than the Vidi Amiga 24R7 but doesn't have a 
Yj'C input. 

The better digitisers can also grab 
sequences of frames, though not at full 
speed, so if you want to do effects such as 
automatic ume lapse then these are for you. 

The Vidi software includes image 
processing and format conversion routines 
to help knock the images into the size and 
look you require. Once you Ve grabbed an 
image you can incorporate if into any of 
your g.mpbrrs work, provided it rs saved m a 
suitable- format 

Al the digitisers mentioned above can 
save IFF files as standard, so this shouldn t 
be a problem. You could import the image 
into DParnt and incorporate if into an anim 
Ithough this will most likely requite extra 
RAWf, or use if as the basis for a video tide 
screen. 

If you have a program like ADQRagp you 
can make a neat animation by choporng the 
image into kttie Ms and reassembling them 
automatically after potting them through 
sotw very fancy moves. 

Captu r ed urages can also be used in 
desktop presentations and DTF [maybe you i, ! 
want to print some vrdeocassette sleeve 
inserts for your finished tape). as welf as 
output through your Amiga/geniock setup 
back to tape as part of your video 
production. 

Well thars all far tints month Next I Jl be 
looking af what you need to get started on 
the home video trail.

ne of the greal thkngs about word- 
| processors and rexr editors which 
n have ARexx interfaces is that it's 
possible to create sophisticated 
search and replace facilities by build ng the 
appropriate macros. 

Yw might for instance have some 
documents that contain dimensions and 
werghts which need! to be converted to their 
metric equivalents, weights in fbs to kilos for 
example and this would mean n^t only 
changing the lbs' units to 'kilos' but also 
altering the numerical values by dividing each 
weight by 2.20S |since 2 205 Jb = I kilo], 

Feet/inches to centimetres, pints to 
millilitres etc., there are hundreds of Situations 
where similar types of conversion can be 
useful 

Moreover, when you have documents that 
Include, say. tables containing a whole set of 
values that need converting, then it is 
obviously better to have the process 
automated because the chance of errors 
being introduced is eliminated once a tried 
and tested conversion macro .s available for 
use. 

It is, however, only worth creating macros 
to do this sort of thing if you ca'n write the 
macro quickly enough to make it an economic 
proposition ume wise. 

The trick here is to have ready-made 
fragments of code available that you can copy 
and modify- to do particular jobs and the 
example code thrs month is just such a oiece 
of code. 

PRTIERfl 

It s a procedure called ModifyBtockg that 
can be given a block of text along with the 
units to be changed, the name of the 
replacement unit and an appropriate 
conversion factor, and it will return the block 
with the deseed changes m place 

Once you've got the general idea, crearmg 
your own specialised procedures for do.ng this 
type of th-rig is not hard because the guts of 
the routines tend to follow the same pattern 

Split the text up rnto words, sea rch for the 
word or words that you are interested m, 
convert them, and then reassemble the text 
block. If the conversion to be performed is not 
straightforward enough to be written with a 
few lines of code, it as probably better to write 
a separate procedure for the conversion 
function and then call that from the 
generalised code that isolates the individual 
words, 

Don't forget that compound variables, such 
as wordS i and wordS .j in the exampre routine 
can always be used as parameters for other 
procedures. 

Too could, if desired, extend this month s 
example code by passing and collecting the 
isolated number and unit values usmg these 
types of statements: 

i. ■ d5 . i ^ t h a - .q tV ii r d 1 tuordi. i> 
uordi. j*th BngeliDrd 2 tuordi. j I 

isolating the conversion-specific code is 
actually quite a- good idea because you don't 
then have to make any changes ro the 
structure of the parts of the routine that 
identify the required words in the text. 


macros built 
for change 


If you were a teacher wirh a whote series of 
maths tests on disk involving conventional 
base I D arithmetic and you wanted to create a 
macro that toulcl automatically convert all the 
test paper sums and answers to base 2 or 
some other base, the idea would be to pass 
the identified numbers to a specialist routine 
that returned the converted value like this 

uordt J*Cemr(Hiu*berlvordJ.1 J 

For illustration purposes I've just couoled 
the ModifyBlockilj orocedure to a short test 
program that passes some example text 
containing a couple of lbs' values and gets 
the values converted to kilos 

In your own programs you would, of 
course, use your editor's for word -processor's} 
own ARexx-speefie nstmctions to collect fines 
or paragraphs from- the document being 
edited 

Incidentally, don 't get thrown by [he doJlar 
■|S I signs at the end of some of my variables - 
this « just a convention that ( use on those 
occasions where variables are dearly used for 


text strings The variable used to hold a brock 
of texL sS therefore labelled block S, whereas 
the variable used to hold the value for unit 
conversion ^conceptually a number} rs called 
conversion_fartor. 

ARexx variables are, of course, typefess 
and internally ARexx treats ail such values as 
strings anyway. Nevertheless, I find that 
adding a little pseudontype information serves 
as a useful purpose during the development 
Of ARexx code and you'll see this convention 
used rn all the code 1 write, 

Talking of code, you 'I see that I've chosen 
a very obvious way of look.ng for values to 
change in this month s example. Look for a 
number and then check to see whether the 
subsequent word indicates the correct 
units 

it works but there is one improvement that 
can cut the execution time of the routrne in 
half, if you Jike puzzles then nave a chink 
about the current version of the code and 
see if you carl spot the change to be made 
before the next issue lets you in on the 
secret!

SEPTEMBER 19^4 







[||1 pit videograpbers assume that if an 
I im^ge rs to appear on video it h^s fa 
LUJ ^ animated. In tact, like dny other 
artistic exploit D7V productions can always 
frenetic from a little light ana shade. 

If a project is solely composed of a constant 
stream of ever-changing animated images, it can 
become rather monotonous - a brief glance ar 
che average tow-budget muirt video is testament 
to that. 

if you're tryjng to make a point, during a 
documentary for example, strlfs are an excellent 
way of adding an authoritative news feel Also, 
if you're an animator stills can be a very 
convenient method of stretch ng the production 
without forcing your system to expend a huge 
amount of effort on additional animated 
sequences. 

Another obvious bonus is that stilus often 
provide the only opportunity to display your 
creations as they realty are, rather than being 
forced into a compromise - as is often the case 
when imagery is compiled into an amm format. 

if you're the lucky owner of one of the many 
24-bit display boards, stilus may be the only 
method you 'll ever have to show your work at its 
best 

Obviously some of the modes offered via the 
AG A come pretty close, but even with the best 
efforts of HamS there's stilJ a noticeable 
difference between the two. 

As I'm sure you're aware there are countless 
methods Of importing images into the Amiga 
bur basically the process, invariably boils down to 
either scanning or frame grabbing 

in the case of frame grabbing the conversion 
from live video to a still Is relatively painless. As 
you're already dealing with a video legar image, 
there's no palette adjustment necessary to avoid 
the dreaded colour Weeding so often associated 
with composite video 

This fs a regular problem when you re 
employing scanned images which contain colour 
saturations that exceed 3 97 or approximately 12 
within the Amiga 's colour register 

in Simple terms this means you must be 
careful during selection. If you suspect an 
element of [he image is over saturated check it 
our in a paint package and make tne necessany 
adjustments before you compile 

ideally it's always best to run rendered or 
scanned images through an image processor 
such as ADPro or JmageFX. Both packages allow 
you ro appty broadcast saturation control 
operators which will ensure perfect results, 

Even though the saturation levels are within 
the correct levels rt’s sometimes worth adding a 


keylmc - especially to brightly coioured logos 
and texr to ensure they don [ bleed in later tape 
generations. 

this can be done very easity via Dpainfs 
outline function which applies a user-defined 
outline in the colour of your choice around the 
selected brush. If you do decide to use this 
option always out for a da r k preferably black - 
outline colour 



Even though vrdeo grabs are " colour legal' if 
daesn t mean they re completely free bom harm 
One of the most frequent grabbing disasters is 
image blur, a phenomena which is usually 
accompanied by a horrendous amount of 
interface flicker, 

This happens afi the time when dealing with 
fast action. Fortunately there is an answer, 
which although not idear is a lot better than the 
mrgrameiriducing effect of a particularly flickery 
grab. 

Ail the mam image processing programs such 
as ADPro. Image Master and ImageFX offer a 


de-inferlace option as standard - and it s also 
fairly likely that rhe software used to grab the 
image will offer a sim.lar feature 

Because all video images use two alternating 
fields to effectively double the resolution of the 
image, interlace flicker something you have to 
come to terms with. 

in affect, deinterlacing divides the two signals 
mfo their respective fields. As a result the flicker 
between the two JS removed - but alas this 
inevitably means you lose half the original 
resolution. 

Therefore, always remember to double the 
height of a de-interlaced image before addmg -r 
into a sequence, 

If we assume the images are ready for video 
and in the correct proportions - interlace with 
maximum overscan - it's time to add them to the 
production There are several ways to achieve 
trips, wifh perhaps the most impressive being 
Scaia which can introduce stills with a varreiy 
of wipes and fades. 

If your finances won't stretch to Scala you 
could employ a FD picture viewer or, even 
better, load them into Vrew 3.6 - an excellent 
anim player and picture wewer which is widely 
^variable in the PD 

With this program it's possible to compile 
several images into an anim and ptay them back 
frame by frame thanks io the program's single 
frame advance feature. 

When a series of stiJis are comb.ned with a 
genlock the results can be stunning especially if 
the stills are from the actual video on display. 
Mow you can employ the classic TV trick of 
'echoing'. How often dD we see a stifl frame 
flashback of an athlete frozen for posterity white 
field or information pop-up on-screen, .. 

You can do the same, constantly flashing back 
to the high spots of any event, perhaps with a 
voice'over adding to the atmosphere. 


Listen to me 

Narration i* another great reason to employ stills if you have a mixture of live video, 
computer graphics and music it's very difficult to add a voice-over without confusing the 
viewer. 

Once again the still can provide a quiet moment where an important voice-over can be 
introduced and, more importantly, absorbed by the viewer. 

Apart from sporting flashbacks, perhaps the beat place for such effects if within 
documentary-style productions, If you re working for a client who wants to establish a 
corporate ID. nothing impresses more than the occasional still of the boss or a panoramic 
wide-angle shot of the new offices. 

Finally, no matter what the subject or style of your Show, a genlock is a near essential 
for a professional finish. Although direct exposures are useful - echoes being an example 
- the option to fade stilts up or down through live video really adds to the production.

and percussion 


that’s rattling 
some ITIidi 
users 


ercussron instrurrenG indude 
everything from bass drums and 
lamtxHi/irtes, night through to the 
'Ttore obscure instruments such sj the cabasa. 
ftamely everything you 'bash' to play! 

One might think that creating a drum 
*:oQtmpaniment far a song played on a mulfr 
t mbrai synch would .just involve selecting 
suitable drum sound voices 
rn fact it isn't quite Thar straightforward 
because, set up in the conventional way, a muln- 
timbrat synth wouid onfy he able play one voice 
ber channel. 

Even if you onfy wanted a bass drum, a snare 
"urn, open and closed hi hats, a couple of toms 
and a cymtfjl, you'd use seven channels and a 
i srge chunk of your mulrj-timbrai capabilities 
The solution rnvoh/es adopting an 
Orangemen t whereby all percussion events are 
sent on just one channel, with the note varoe 
being used to indicate which particular 
percussion voice should sound. 

Same syntheses and expanders have a 
aerial drum channel assigned for this purpose 
but if you lake Che hardware that can do this, 

•*dd some touch-pads which act as drum keys., 
(-corporate meirt&ry for storing drum patterns 
'ltd finally add some software which permits (he 
ireaticm and editing of rhythm patterns, you end 
up with a uni t called a drum machine 
Why mention these? A great many 
synthesizers, especially chose slightly ofdEr 
cadets, do not have any special 
drum/percussion Facilities- Because of this, you 
might need a drum machine in order ro add 
: r um/percussion sounds to your song 
arrangements, 

As far as the recording and playing back of 
percussion tracks is concerned, it is much the 
ame as receding or pfaying back w dinary 
jynih«teer dao. although there are a couple of 
things to bear in mind. 

iRHnsposmc 

Firstly, you must not transpose drum channel 
(feta because if you change the note values 
you'll change the actual percussion voice being 
played. 

The effect of inadvertently transposing a drum 
pert wiil sound desirous on playback - 
warded bass drums might turn- into cymbals, 
die snare drum might vanish and so on 
Obviousfy it rj something that is easily fijced by 
‘^transposing the data back into its original key, 
‘hereby restoring the original note values. Some 
sequencers (Dr T s KCS for instance] allow you to 
protect" a specified Midi channel from 
’-ansposmon fo# chrs very reason 
The second thing which needs to be pointed

Bulimy

SEPTEMBER 1994

out is that drum machines lor integral synthesizer 
percussion facil. ties | vary enormously in the 
number of different percussion sounds they can 
provide. 

Up until fairly recently, there was little 
standardisation between different manufacturers 
as far as whrch note number s would represent 
which drum sounds 

General Midi |GMj has improved matters here 
because it has defined a set of standardised note 
drum-voce correspondences that are always used 
cm Mien channel 1 0 (the GM designated 
percussion channel/. 

ff you'vE been invoPved with Midi far some 
time and have bj It up a large library of sequence 
material, theresa potential problem looming 

In order to make the most of commercially 
arranged song and sequence library material, you 
need to have your drum machine set up for the 
GM drum note correspondences because most of 
dws material is provided in GM compatible Midi 
file format nowadays 

However, in order to play your existing 
material, you will still need your percussion unit 


tJr Tt KCS allow* you to 
protect ■ 6 p*citl«d Midi 
gtwrm+l from rnnvwliiidA 

set up to provide the drum note correspondences 
that you originally used. 

What can you do? Firstly, you can opt to keep 
changing the drum note correspondences you 
use. Secondly, you can remap all the GM 
sequence material that you obtain so that it 
corresponds to your original drum note 
mappings Or lastly, you can remap all your 
existing sequence data so that it then conforms, 
as near as possible, to the GM arrangements, 
Obviously the best long-term solution is the last 
one because this wilf bong your Midi Wt-Up into 
Irne with what has now become a firmly 
established wxing scheme 
Incidentally, many older drum machines (such 
as the Yamaha RX2 ] | have fixed note drum-voice 
correspondences which you cannot alter. 

Avoid these Inke the plague when searching 
for second-hand bargains and whatever you 
decide to buy, do make sure that the drum 
machine's noledrum -voice settings can be re- 
configured. 


Can you help? 

-lose Amiga sequencers provide editing facilities that can be used to remap notes on a particular 
nannel, but when you ve got prasitUj humtu-cb of sequence files this sequencer editing approach to 
drum part remapping is both i^nte consuming and error prone 

Moreovt'i many people nowadays lend io store rne<r sequences in Midi file form, so what wt ■ realty 
need is a ‘configurable' drum track remapping utility that can wor- directly on Mid' files using source 
tnd destination drum map informai-on suppiied by Che user 
I've never been able to find a utility like this, so at rhis point I'm isking two favours Firstly, wme cwxl 
ft me know 'f you ve ever come across such a utility |so that l can fell everyone else about it/ 

Secondly write and let me know if you would find such a utility useful f there s sufficient interest 
! l write one 3nd put it on the cover disk

gets lost from rime to time. At such 
times you really need something fa 
reach for - a Ducket waufri be nice - especially 
if you've been on the Usenet a [.tasteless 
newsgroup for too !0ng\ 

No, I'm thinking of a reference guide, 
something which would reli you arl the stuff 
you need to know and fill in the gaps rn places 
where you learned only what you had to know 
to get the job done 

Okay, so there are some on-Jine ten ts, like 
[he Big Dummy's Guide to the internee from 
fFF and Brendan Keyhoe's Zen and the An of 
(he Internet. buL they are pretty technical, and 
if you don't know where they reside how can 
you get them and read them? 

Forumatety for you and I there are some 
books around which give you a comprehensive 
guide to whai s what, and I've been scouting 
around for some good ones 

Most Internet books, m common with d lot 


Which to buy 

If you only buy one of these books 
then go for the VtlJow Page*, but If 
you want technical info and tun find 
your own resources, then go for TICP. 
If you're rich and want to have 
everything that s the best in irs field, 
then buy both.

DUPLICATED 

I did happen across two books which were 
readable, even funny in places, and full of 
information Sadly, as they are 'written by the same 
guys, a lot O# rbe information is duplicated in each 
book, so it's an either/or situation Buy one or thy 
other. not both. The books >n guesncn ate The 
Internet Yellow Pages and The Internet Complete

For those of you that don't have, or intend to buy, the internet Yellow Pages, ipoor misguided 1 souls; 
here is thrs .month's drp into the Internet. I've been spending the last month looking up friends I only 
ever talk to via e-marl. One such figure is Sreve R'oOerts, tech nomad You know, the guy who used to 
ride around America on his recumbent bike loaded down with Sparcstanons and Macs? 

Weil, Steve's ne*t project is the MitroSbip, an ocean-going version of his computer bike. To get 
updates on the Microchip project, which is drawing to a close, use a Worid Wide web server or client 
program to access;

Steve has pu t some text and pictures of the project for ail to see. 

Our second service station on the rnfobahn is outer space Yes folks. if you need to know how to

and go to the d. rectory:

There you will find all the info you need tD make your own mode of transport that not only gets you 
from A to d faster than the speed of light, it also makes nifty crop circfes as it takes off. 

And finally, do you have a question on a range of subjects as diverse as lock pickingL comics, 
Disney, rofier coasters and how to make Vodka? You need a frcquemiy^sked questions fisting. All the 
FAQ lists from Usenet can be found either by joining the-

and about an ,*neh and a ha;f thick. It looks like the 
sort of book you wouldn't like to enter without 
stout walking boots and a foil pack of sleeping 
gear and nosh. Surpusingty however, from the 
first page you are drawn in HairTey Hahn's little 
world within the Internet. The style is warm and 
frfendly. and yet not lacking in technical detail. 

This is the tec hnirar m*A book, and is where 
you can learn ra hot-wire the Internet from scotch 
using only a simp's terminal program 

QOviOuJty things have moved 1 on since then 
with a lot of graphic user interfaces com. ng along 
in the fast six months, so a lot 0# (his stuff is 
academic. 

But you know. I nke to know thrs stuff in case I 
ever rind myself without my Amiga and a copy of 
Amiga Mosaic You never know. And it is the 
complete reference after a! I so A you ever need to 
know now to set the maximum number of hits in 
an .Archie search, and don't want to look a dork 
on the Net by hav.-ng to ask, you can look it up 
here. (Chapter l ? p337, if you must kmow.f 

As for The Internet Yelrow Pages, now thrs is 
where it gets interesting. The second half of TO 
is a catalogue of resources on the Internet, and 
some bright spark thought -t would be swell to 
oeei tfiat off the book and sell it as a new bedfc - 
suitably rewritten and augmented Of course, 

This, like most bright spark ideas, was a flipping 
bfinder. as rtus (i one of the best books about the 
internet you can buy. Its funny, nteresting,, 
occasionally mind blowing, but always readabfe 
and useful. 

It's solved a few of my immediate problems 
afreatfy like how to find an email address when 
you can remember it \p l 59|, where is the 
locksmithing newsgroup on Usenet 
I'alt.locksmithi ngj 1 , and where can you get a lugh 
grade source of dirty limericks 
[quanj.rutgers.edui 

it's a grear book and one which is never far

aking fin ios programs that really sing off 
the screen at you has always been 
problem numero unc- Regular 
correspondent and Amos hacker Malcolm La very 
has come up w?rh this neat idea which deserves a 
look, and rt s an about the making and using of 3D 
buttons. Let’s go through hrs lisrmg with a fine 
toothed comb. 

Firstly we round up die usual suspects, setting 
up the screen and palette nonsense:

The limit mouse thing is to stop the mouse co-ords 
screwing up, and if you intend doing any mouse 
CO-ftfds Stuff i r ecommend you reset them first 
before use Ne*t we need to reserve some zones : 

R«s«rMt Z.n r -e ID 

ObvTQusty there is one zone for each button you 
wish to create Then we call the 3D Button 
procedure to create our buttons.

The tests check each button and tf the test is true 
[hen the te*i o*> the button will change Usually a 
belf wifi sound to Indicate chat your button hais 
been pressed. 

Finally we have rhe procedures which create 
and use the buttons 3DB L.TTDN gives you a 
zone number. *,y co-ords for the top left corner, 
height and Width from that corner, itv_OUT which 
is a flag to see if the button rs tn or out. the test to 
be inserted on Che button, and the background 
and ink colours It's a comprehensive httle Dtoc. 
and very wefJ eftr^ to Malcolm for figuring it out.

Andr there it ts. A ample program, illustrating a 
few cardinal rules of Amos. Make a small program 
which automates e task and work outwards from 
it. Although I'm still not sure about Frocs from the 
standpoint of larger programs, in small programs 
they are no slower than raking tne suiwoutine 
route, so it's good either way. 

Once agarn a neat proqqy from Malcolm, and 
thanks for that. 

Any more brirlo Amot code heads out there 
want to Wind us wrth their genius? Hnun, I 
thought so.

You can have as many of each type of tab as you

Beneath the typeface name gadget is the colour 
list. You'll probably want the mam body to be black., 
but tor other styles you may want to select a colour, 
tf you don't own a colou' printer you wilt need to 
experiment with these colours to see how they prmt

m mono. Despite what they say, size is important. 
Body copy is normally anything between eight 
point and f I point. Magazines, for example, are 
generally set in 9 or PQ point, books are usual fy 1 f 
point or perhaps 1 2 pernt if the lypeface is a small' 
one, 

For good readability leading should be about 
>20 ': of the point size - so 1 0 point text ,s good 
with f 2 pant leading (Written down as I 0/l2pt(. 
Mote that the leading size includes the size of the 
typeface, so 1 0 point re# with 1 2 .point leading 
means there n two points of space between me 
fines. 

m siflms 

The WxJth gadget enables you to condense or 
expand a typeface For body copy it is better to buy 
a typeface which has been specificaiy designed as 
condensed or expanded, but for quick special 
effects - in headings for example - make good use 
Df the WMti gadget. 

Likewise the Oblique gadget. You shouldn't 
ready use thrs as a replacement for a proper 
itaiiO'Sea typeface, bus it is very useful for adding a 
new slant to your document 

Over an the right of the type specs requester 
you can select superscript or subscript from the 
position dropdown menu, and beneatti that you 
may sdect All Caps or Smaii Caps. 

Smalt capitals are upper case letters 

-I whose height matches the height of 

the lower case fetters in that point 
size Jthe >-height'l If a word has an 
initial capital then that is left at its foil 
— height and only the subsequent 
fetters are put info smaif caps. 

Finally we come to Style, which is

■ A good dmimuit' for 
ioodina it about

a rather confusing name for what is merely a drop 
down menu that enables you to select some 
underline oplfons. Underlines make a document 
look amateurish: use them sparingly. 

Everything selected, hrt me OK gadget in the 
type specs requester, then the OK gadget on the 
main styles requester. Our style is now set up. 

If you select Parsgraph/FontAtyfe Strip from 
the view menu, the body style should appear in 
the gadget at the top reft of the screen. Select 
View/Show Style pafette fg get the body style 
gadget 'nro a fioabng window if you prefer. 
Remember, to save the style you must save the 
document. 

To the casual user this must alf seem Irlse a heil 
of a Jot of wcuk just to get some text on the 
screen in a particular typeface and size. Indeed it 
is And you don't have to do it thrj way 

However, the advantage is that you only have 
to set up your styles once, after which any style 
is literally one mouse click away Without styles 
you would have to manually set air the 
parameters every time you wanted to change 
style, 

Once you get used to the idea, J'm sure you IF 
find it a much more productive way to create 
documents, particularly if you want your 
documents to have a consistent look to them
