he almost farcical fall and rise of the 
Amiga has to be one of the strangest 
episodes in computing h istory 
Claims, counter claims, rumours and an even- 
tual buy-out, spread over a whole year with 
not a single machine made or sold, 

And yet the fanatical user base remained 
toyai to the cause. At last, the basic A1200 1$ 
back in business, as indeed are the majority 
of the UK management team who headed-up 
Commodore UK - which incidentally was one 
of the few profit making outposts in the empire 
prior to the col lapse. 

At last some good news for the users and 
even better news for the Commodore old 
boys. But what's happened to Escom's plans 
for an Amiga renaissance, as revealed to the 
wohd at their Frankfurt press launch of the all 
new Amiga Technologies division. 

Like many olhers, I sat back and listened as 
the Escom hierarchy detailed their glorious 
vision designed to put their latest acquisition 
back in its proper place, The driving force m 
the revival was to be a pricing policy which 
effectively halved the price of the entire range. 
Although the men at the lop were careful not 
to quote a solid price per unit, they did reveal 
the number of units to be produced, projected 
overall costs, and the profit margin 
built into the business plan.. 

Given all of the above, if doesn't 
require a genius to figure out a 
fairly accurate retail price. Do your 
sums and contrast that with the 
real-world asking price and you 
soon figure gut someone at 
Escom needs a new calculator. 

Since that glorious day* Amiga 
Technologies have been keen to forget these 
initial forecasts, while third parties are even 
denying whal was ever said - which is guile 
ironic considering those who are re-telling the 
story didn't actually attend. 

Bui let's be realistic. The press conference 
was exactly that - a PR stunt designed to 
divert some much needed attention to their 
latest investment. Fine, However, the renais- 
sance is now wall under way, so isn't it time 
wouid- be investors and tong lime enthusiasts 
alike were given a little more than vague 
promises. 

Given that the planned pricing policy was 
no more then & tempore ry rush of blood to the 
head, what's happened to the other keys to 


The R[ team 


Paubach time 



ba a pricing polity 
halued tiie prirt at the entire range 


success in the Escom vision. Where's the 
promised redesign, come to that, where's the 
all new A4000 it was to be emblazoned 
across, 

The world did not stop revolving with the 
premature demise of the Amiga. PCs and 
Macs continued to get cheaper, quicker and 
prettier. Admittedly, the Amiga still blows both 
platforms away when il comes to a straight 
price and performance combo, but what arc 
Escom/ Amiga Technologies doing to promote 
the virtues of their machines. 

The men at the top may well point to Amiga 
Computing and others to wave the flag on 
their behalf. No problem, we've done exactly 
that for the duration. However, Joe Schmoe 
needs to be convinced the Amiga is. back (or 
good - and that's something that can only be 
achieved with real-world promotion and an 
obvious investment in the cause, 

The latest rumours involve a 
£850,000 Escom Christmas TV 
advertising campaign. It 
remains to be seen if any of the 
alleged cash is to be spent on 
the Amiga, or is it simply pro- 
moting the existing multimedia 
PC range. 

It has to be said that Amiga Technologies 
certainly aren't alone in taking the Amiga com- 
mumty for granted. WewTek are a prime 
example of a company whove made millions 
courtesy of the machine and have now seem- 
ingly forgotten the platform completely. 
Obviously, launching Lightwave on the PC 
and just about every other computing platform 
known to man is going to put pressure on any 
company, Having said that, an occasional 
i h aught (or their bread and butter business 
surely can’t be too much to expect. 

Nobody is asking for a handout here. To get 
the Amiga back on a firm footing, potential 
buyers and investors need reassurance. 
Amiga Technologies promised various follow- 
up events designed to keep people up to date 
with their progress and future plans. Needless 




to say, a vague promise is as far as it got. 

The same is true for NewT ek. Way hack m 
our May issue, Amiga Computing scooped 
an exclusive preview of Lightwave 4 and 
promised a full review would appear soon 
after. That was eight months ago and I'm still 
none the wiser as to when the promised 
review will appear, 

Come on guys, is it really that difficuh lo 
put the odd realistic press release together. 
That's literally all it takes - magazines like 
this one will happily do the rest, Amiga users 
aren't going to sell-up at the firs! sign ol 
adversity, Ihal’s already been proven, Whal's 
likely to kill the Amiga off faster than anything 
else is a tack of communication and confi- 
dence in the men and women who make it, 
and the products that help to make it special,

S DL, the largest distributor of hardware 
to the Iradtttonal computer retailer, is 
battling for survival having been forced by 
cash flow problems to apply for an 
Administration Order. Contrary to a report in 
VNU's PC Dealer, however, the company 
das net gone into receivership. 

The fortunes of Ihe company over the 
nexl few months are of particular signifi- 
cance to Amiga enthusiasts, since SDL was 
recently chosen by Amiga Technologies io 
distribute the new A 1200s and 4000Ts to 
retail. 

As was the case with ZCL earlier m the 
year, SDL's financial troubles arise from 
cash flow problems caused by the collapse 
of Commodore International. Attempts to 
make up for the 18 month absence of the 
Amiga by moving into Other markets have 
also been hampered by the erratic supply ol 
PCs from companies like IBM and 
Compaq, according to Marketing 
Controller John Arundel. 

Following the grant of an 
Administrative Order by the High 
Court on 13 October 1995, SDL is 
now protected for a minimum of 
three months against any action 
by creditors to bring the company 
down, This means that for the 
time being, the company's £8

SDl fight through crisis 


Jeftn fleneiwl 

Manager c>f Amiga 
Tc-chnaliygic 5 UK r hopes 
that SDL wit! survive 



million debts have been frozen. During this 
period the Administrator, David Nisbel, will 
attempt to keep the company trading and 
making profit for the creditors. As SDL were 
keen to point out, the firm's situation differs 
from ZCL in that ii has not been pul into 
administrative receivership, which usually 
leads to liquidation. At present, the major 
creditors are still supporting SDL, 

The crisis also puts the future of SDL’s 
Silica retail stores into question. David 
Nisbet has already said that the chain is not 
very profitable and that it will need close 
monitoring. 

Asked how SDL's fortunes 
would affect the Amiga, John 
Smith, General Manager of 
Amiga Technologies UK 
said: ‘‘Obviously [SDL's] 
survival is very important. 
They've been good 
ambassadors for 
Commodore products 
over the years and we 


hope Ihey'll continued Along with 
Leisuresoft. SDL are the only distributor tor 
new Amiga products, and of the two it has 
far more experience in ihe Amiga market If 
the worst comes to the worst and SDL 
disappears, Amiga Technologies would 
be forced to look to alternatives, "Don't 
forget," John Smith added, "we have 
Leisuresoft, so while 1 want SDL to 
survive we do already have an alternative 
distributor," 

It appears that SDL have yet to receive 
the Amiga bundles that could help revive 
fortunes because of supply problems 
Amiga Technology have been experienc- 
ing. However, John Smith expects the 
Solectron factory in Bordeaux to toe up to 
full capacity toy the second week of 
November at the latest. 

"We have been having discussions with 
the administrator and you will start to see 
products at the beginning of next week 
coming back into SDL” he toid A/ruga 
Computing. 


Ragin' Gaijin 


Although Gaijin press are better known for 
their Manga creations on paper than 
video, founder Josh Clark has embarked 
Upon an ambitious new project in which he 
intends to make full use of Amiga hard- 
ware and software. The plan is to make a 
motion picture of his comic book title,. Ariel: 
High School Devil-Girl. Enlisting help from 
companies such as Alternative Image and 
Magic Camera Company, it is hoped the 
projecl will be yei another animation coup 
forlhe Amiga. 

Clark explained why he has chosen the 
Amiga to work on: "The Amiga is Ihe best: 
machine for the job, it's cheap and easy to 
use." He intends to use packages such as 
Imagine. Real 3D and Cinema 4D and 
hopes this will allow him to create cartoon- 
5lyle graphics as dose to the Japanese 
standards as possible. 

He went on to explain: "WeTe trying to 
make a pipe dream into a reality and show 
that il your head’s in it then anyone can do 
it It's a case of The Amateur Strikes Back 
if you like!” 

The film is currently only in the planning 
stages, all hough it is hoped development 
will commence in February, 


UK gets Pawed 


Aflcr months of speculation, the world's first portable Amiga is ready to go on sale. 
Blittersoft have recently agreed exclusive distribution rights for Silent Paw 
Production’s products, and the Portable Amiga Work Station will be on sale in the UK 
this November. 

Developed by US company Silent Paw Productions, the first versions to go on 
sale will be the PAWS GOO and 1200. Versions based on the A3O00 and A40QQ will 
follow, although they will differ in that they do not have the ability to use battery 
power. 

Blittersoft are convinced there will be a market for laptop Amigas, all hough it will obvi- 
ously be a niche. "A lol of people are using portable PC notebooks for ihmgs like CIX 
and e-mail, * Bliftersoft's Paul Lesurf said. "But they say they’d rather be using Amigas." 

As far as the PAWS 3000 and 4000s aie concerned, the company expects high 
demand for the products from people who want portable Video Toasters. “It's a niche 
market,” Lesurf admitted. “It's too expensive for everyone, but certainly there is a 
market" 


Hmiga 40-405 

The Amiga is going to be sold in the Escom shops. John Smith told us at the 
time of going to print. We realise by now that we’re beginning to look stupid say- 
ing in one issue it isn't then in the next that It is. but it’s not our fault. Amiga 
Technologies just keep changing their minds. 

The latest report from John Smith says that the Amiga will be on sale in 200 
Escom shops by mid-November. Hero at Amiga Computing r we'll believe it when 
we see it.

CHRISTMAS 1995 


The city of Bradford in Yorkshire is hardly 
renowned as a place synonymous with 
new technology, but alt that could be set 
to change. Bradford is the home of 
Microvitec Displays, a company respect- 
ed for their high quality monitors, and fol- 
lowing a recent deal with Amiga 
Technologies worth £20 million, they are 
about lo put their name well and truly on 
the European map. 

Amiga Technologies have made a part- 
nership with the firm which allows 
Microvitec to produce the official line of 
monitors for the Amiga. It marks the 
beginning of a long-term deal which 
means the largest order ever for 
Microvitec from any customer. To cele- 
brate, the company held a high profile 
champagne reception to mark the first 
Amiga monitor corning off the production 
lme$. Among the local dignitaries, key fig- 
ures of Amiga Technologies also attend- 
ed The monitor, called the M1438S, 
includes amplified stereo speakers and a 
special Amiga-compatible video plug. 

The emphasis was on generating a 
European union wilh all parts being devel- 
oped In Europe. Microvitec Display's 
Managing Director, Tony Sampson 
stressed this: "This agreement is proof 
that European electronics manufacturers 
can mount a successful challenge to Far 
Eastern competitors and Amiga's choice 
ol Solectron, a French company, to man- 
ufacture the Amiga 1200 computer is fur- 
ther vindication that European companies 
are capable of producing quality products 
for worldwide markets," 

Retro Tyschtschenko, president of 
Amiga Technologies GmbH was invited to 
speak, and he revealed the partnership’s 
plans tor new products next year "For the 
first quarter, we will continue with the 14 
inch model," be said. But fgr the CEBIT 
fair in Hannover, we have a 15 and 17 
inch model on schedule. Our goal is also 
to replace the 14 inch by the 15 inch 
model as soon as possible, during 
the second quarter, and! this without 
increasing the pone." 

He cites the 17 inch as a breakthrough 
in ihe Amiga market because the monitor 
is able to adapt automatically to horizontal: 
frequencies tram 15 up to 64 KHz It can 



TTfi# Micrwifac factory in Bradford 
hik been ehosntt to produce (ft* 
officiaf Amiga monitors 


also be used on high-end Amigas fitted 
with 64 -bit graphic boards and wilt display 
video as well as high resolution VGA 
screens. 

The general mood of the conference 
was positive, with Amiga Technologies 
president looking confidently into the 
future. "For the coming year. I will not 
make any commitments but if everything 
keeps going as well as this year, we 
expect to ship 500,090 Amiga 1200 and 
50.000 Amiga 4000T. There wiM be new 
models available in the entry- level as well 
as in the mid-range " Plans are also in the 
pipeline to present their now A12QQ CO’ 
ROM drive at the Amiga fair in Cologne- 

Other members of Amiga Technologies 
were on hand to answer questions and 
they revealed that the choice of RISC 
chip for the next generation Amigas will 
be announced at (tie Video Toaster Expo 
Show. At their Cologne show, also in 
November, they will announce in-depth 
development plans for the future of ihe 
Amiga range 

John Smith, General Manager UK. tokl 
Am^ga Computing that he was pleased 
with Ihe reaction from retail, although 
Managing Director, Jonathan Anderson, 
expressed unhappiness with supply diffi- 
culties. Gilles Bourdin confirmed an 
Internet package is in development and 
mentioned that they are currently seeking 
a modem to go In the deal

Techno mouse 


Leisuresoft may be distributing 
the Amiga, but (heir contribu- 
tion to development is still 
pretly small. Supposedly to 
‘celebrate’ the relaunch of the 
Amiga, Leisu resort's subsidiary 
Technoplus have released a 
new mouse. 

II differs from other versions 
available for the Amiga in (hat 
(is contoured lines and carefu- 
lly moulded shape have been 
developed for both shod and 
extended periods of use. 

The mouse cost Cl 4.99 and 
will be available from most 
leading Computer stores.

Pleasante paus tribute 


David Pleasance i formerly Managing 
Director ol Commodore UK before the 
Escom takeover, is set to make a come- 
back with a new company called Tangent 
and an album created with and dedicated 
to the Amiga. 

Named 'Everybody’s Girlfriend,' ihe 14 
(rack CD is due for release in early 
December and will feature songs written 
by Pleasance himself. The CD fakes its 
name from the word Amiga which in 
Spanish means girlfriend. 

“The music is very diverse," he fold 
Amiga Computing, In addition to blues, 
ballads, fusion and pop, Pleasance him- 
self will be playing a flamenco guitar 
track. “All the tracks are inspired by the 
Amiga in one way or the other," he 
explained. "A song called 'I don't want to 
lose you' says H all, I think. 1 " The Amiga 
has been used for all the mrdi, composing 
and sequencing on the album, 

Asked if he thought there‘d be much 
demand for the album, he replied: "It's 
nut |usl Amiga created music, it's a cele- 
bration of ten years ol the Amiga. We're 
banking on the 



fact lhat the Amiga has a cult following." 

Pleasance already has a successful 
background in music, one of the high 
points of which was coming second in the 
Australian Opportunity Knocks. Tangent 
Music Design is now based in a ’state of 
the art' 32 channel, 24 track recording 
studio. 

It looks like Pleasance's long time busi- 
ness involvement with the Amiga might 
be coming to an end, however, after the 
album is completed Tangent will contin- 
ue to make music for games companies, 
but so far their are no further Amiga 
plans. "Thai's not where the growth is at 
Ihe moment,*' he commented. 

Until the buyout in May earlier this 
year. David Pleasance and Colin 
Proudfooi had been heading Commodore 
UK in a bid to take over the Commodore 
legacy. Escom did not buy ihe UK opera- 
tion after Pleasance's team pulled out of 
the running at ihe last minute. We asked 
David Pleasance what he though! of 
Escom s performance so far, 

"It's obvious that Jonathan and the 
other guys are working under very, very 
difficult circumstances at the moment," 
he said. "Escom have bought this thing 
and they're really doing it on the cheap. 
They're not investing in anything at all. 
which is why they didn’t buy the UK busi- 
ness and they wouldn't meel Culm 
[ProudfootJ and t on our terms." 

1 think their plan is to capitalise on the 
demand for the product until Christmas, 
then have a review of the situation and 
then decide whether they want to invest 
any further," he continued. “Frankly if 
they don't invest then t think they're 
heading for a fall,"

opposed to SCSI, however, which 
means that Squirrel interface owners 
won't be able to use it. However, il iviV 
work using BMttersoft's new 
ATARI, DEVICE reported in last 
month's news. 

Named the SCR-630, it has an 
average access lime of 220ms. a 
seek access time of 190ms. and a 
datn transfer rate of 702 Kb/s, which 
should make it well-equipped for 
animation and video playback The 
drive also supports multi-session 
Photo-CD. 

AH the usual external features 
should be available as well, including 
Iray-loading and front panel controls. 
The SCR-630 should be available

ESCOM HAVE OVER 200 STORES NATIONWIDE 













Extracting EouerOisK files 


HD 


efore you ever think of putting she cover disks anywhere 
near your computer you should make sure you writ® pro- 
tect them. By moving the black tab in the top comer of ihe 
disk, so you can see through the hole, you prevent your 
disks being damaged in any way, There should be no reason why 


* 


Ihe cover disks need to be written to, so even if the computer asks 
you to write enable the disks, don’t do it. 

To extract the programs off the second disk you must make sure 
you have booted your computer with Ihe first cover disk, oiherwise 
your Amiga will not be able to find the c : Installer program , and 
frustration will soon set in., 

To extract any single archive, simply double-click Us icon and fol- 
low the on-scrson instructions. If you want to quickly extract the 
program to RAM. select the NOVICE level on the welcome screen 
and press proceed once on the current screen, and then again on 
the next. The program can then bo found in your RAM disk. 

You also have the option of using, a floppy disk. If you pick this 
option, make sure you have a blank formatted disk at the ready, 
and if you only have one drive get ready for lots of disk swapping 
and a long wart,

Hard driue users 


Hard drive users do not have to boot with the first disk, but you 
must make sure you have Commodore's Installer program in 
your C drawer, This can be found on the first cover disk's C 
drawer by choosing Show All Files from ihe Workbench menu in 
ihe cover disk's window, and I hen opening the C drawer, You 
should than drag this over to your hard dove's C drawer. 

All your hard drive owners will find MulMExtracI very useful. It 
is a separate method of extracting our CoverDisk files- and allows 
you to extract a number of fifes in one go to your hard disk or 
RAM. 

When you run Multi Extract you wilt be presented with a num- 
ber of check boxes, each representing one of the programs on 
that cover disk. Just de-select all the programs you do not want 
extracting, and (hen press proceed. 

All the selected programs can now miraculously be found in 
the selected destination. 


This month you get the best of both Rmiga 
sound and image processing, along uiith our 
usual collection of ffmiga utilities

Image Engineer 


When I first tried this program I was com- 
pletely bowled over by the quality of pro- 
gramming, and also the range of features it 
has, The first thing that will hit you is how 
fast Image Engineer is - even on a plain 
A1 2M full cotour previews are done in sec- 
onds. If you think all processes are dorm in 
24-bits, this is pretty astounding. 

Before you can use Image Engineer you 
must install ihe SuperView libraries, also 
found on the this first cover disk, Please 
refer fo the separate box lor more details 
on the SuperView libraries. 

Once you have installed SuperView on 
your hard drive, you can extract Image 
Engineer into RAM or onto your hard drive 
It is possible so run IE from where it is, but 
you should use the installer script because 
rt sets up an assign which is used by IE's 
ARexx commands - otherwise il will not 
run correctly 

Once you have Image Engineer 
installed, when you first run it you can pick 
exactly what screen mode it should nun in. 
If you pick a colour preview mode you will 
have to wait a short time while it sets up 
the correct screen colours. Once this is 
done you will be confronted by a rather 
boring screen. Mow, before you try lo do

ences correctly which can be found in ihe 
Project menu, You will need Id set a num- 
ber of directones to toll IE where to find 
your own picture directory and its own 
ARexx and convolve file directories. 

I would recommend you read the docu- 
mentation that comes with image Engineer 
as it has a huge number of options, and the 
documentation has a number of tutorials 
that will let you get to grips will all aspects 
of the program with the least amount of 
hassle. 

However I will try to explain some of the 
more used parts of the program. Loading a 
file is a doddle. Due lo Ihe SuperView 
libraries you can access a good number of 
file types including any supported 
Datatype. Therefore any GIFs, Jpegs or 
PCX files you have will be handled by 
Image Engineer with no problem al all. 

Once you have a picture loaded you will 
see it in its own window. One of the best 
effects lo show off Image Engineer's abili- 
ties is if you pick the twirl effect from the 
Edit menu. This pops up a requestor which 
will allow you lo selecl where and how il 
will effect fee current image. The requester

is very straightforward and fairly seif 
explanatory, and as usual with these things, 
experimentation is the besl way to learn, 

If you've had a good play with all of 
image Engineer's functions, you should 
have Mane across Its convolve and ARexx 
options. If you've set up the preferences 
properly you should have a selection of 
around 20 example ARexx scripts, and 
Amen you choose Load from the Convolve 
window, there is a selection of 15 can- 
vdves which you can add to yourself at a 
laler date These two options can provide 
some of Image Engineer's most powerful 
functions. 

The ARexx functions provided by Image 
Engineer are potentially infinitely powerful, 
However, due tp the very nature of ARexx 
you will need a little programming knowl- 
edge lo be able to use this feature of IE. 
Luckily, there a good number of example 
functions ready for you to use and examine. 

It is possible to add and remove these 
from the ARexx menu through the prefer- 
ences. One function that 1$ initially not in 
rhe ARexx menu is a batch converl script 
which allows you to convert a number of 
pictures tp another picture format. Other 
good ARexx functions to try are the antique 
and motion biur ones which show what is 
possible with the ARexx functions. 

A little tip tor people using colour pre- 
views is (hat when you initially run Image 
Engineer if uses a standard colour selection 


which any lauded picture is dithered to. 
This means that potentially, you might nor 
be getting the best colour representation 
from your pictures. 

If, however, you choose the Re-calc 
Colours from the Project menu, this works 
out the best selection of colours for the 
loaded images which can greatly improve 
the display quality. If you do this, you 
should make sure you re-calcuJate the 
colours each time a new picture is loaded 
because the colours can go a little strange 
- especially a picture consisl of a single 
colour range.

SuperUieui libraries 

Author: Andreas Kleinert 

Workbench; 2.04 

The SuperView libraries are a collection pf Amiga run lime libraries 
l hat allow other programs I hat support SuporView to easily load, 
save, convert and process images wilh Ihe minimum of ease. This 
allows programmers to concentrate on perfecting their program with- 
out having to worry aboul supporting every different type of picture 
Tormal out (here, 

We have been given special permission from the author, Andreas 
Kleinert, to distribute a cut-down version of the original SuperView 
library. Please note: the archive found on Uhis month's cover disk is a 
special version solely for Amiga Computing users and cannot be re- 
dislnbuted by any other means - public domain or not. A full version 
of ihe SuperView library cart be lound on Aminet 
Installation of SuperView is very straightforward using the standard 
Amiga installer program. However, you must make sure you have Ihe 
Installer program in your C; directory. If you do not ibool up with your 
hard drive, insert the first cover disk in DFO;, open a shell and type 
copy dfO:cfinstatier c: - this will have copied Installer into your C: 
directory. 


[an I haue more? 


Image processing is pretty 
demanding when i( comes to 
memory and processor usage. 
Therefore, when it comes to 
what amount of memory and 
processor you have, the term 
Ihe more the merrier springs to 
mind 1 . 

All, however, is not lost, As 
Image Engineer is a very flexi- 
ble program, there are a few 
tricks you can use to save on 
memory and lo gain a good 
speed increase, A 1200 users 
wilh extra memory will be able 
to use linage Engineer on a 
Hi -res 64 colour screen with 
compare live ease. The only 
time you will be realty twiddling 
your fingers cs when the pro- 
gram is initially setting itself up. 

Even so. you can still very 


easily run out of memory, and 
if you have a few windows 
open you may want a little 
speed boost, The simplest 
way lo get both is to switch 
Image Engineer lo a grey 
scale preview screen. You do 
this from the project window by 
seleoling the Screenmode 
option, 

A dithered 16 colour grey 
scale preview wilt still give you 
a good idea of what the final 
picture will look like, and you 
have the advantage of saving 
memory along with a major- 
speed increase in the window 
redrawing, When you do want 
an idea ol whal the final pic- 
ture will look tike, just selecl a 
render by pressing the righl- 
Amiga R keys. 


fllf Alpha 


[«1 E 


The alpha channel function of Image Engrneer Is a 
completely invaluable function. The idea of them 
does, however, take a little getting used lo. 
Basically, you normally have a primary and sec- 
ondary image, which you select from the Alpha 
menu option. What the alpha channel then does is 
to blend the primary image on top of the secondary 
image, depending on the brightness of the alpha 
channel being used. The way this works is that Ihe 
black part of the alpha represents the secondary 
image, while the white part will only show the pri- 
mary image. Any shade of grey in between will 
show a mixture of ihe primary and secondary. 

If you look at the circular alpha example, the 
darker part of the alpha shows the secondary 
image through it, while in ihe white part of the 
alpha, only the primary image can be seen.

COVERDISKS 


SoundFH 


Author: Stefan Kost 

Workbench’ 2.04 


What Image Engineer is For graphics, SoundFX is 
to samples. Sporting the ability to load nine differ- 
ent sample types and do 49 different processes, 
SoundFX will keep you pretty busy trying out 
all ol its functions, However, as SoundFX is 
shareware ihe save function is disabled, 

SoundFX is a fairly large program, so you will 
need a hard drive to run it When yon first extract 
SFX off Ihe second cover disk you will only 
see twg install loons, The installation is very 
straightforward, copying all (he files and 
documentation into a single directory. 

Due to its modular design, each of SFX's func- 
tions, such as toad and process, are actually list 
views. This makes it much easier to handle any 
new modules that may be added at a later date. 
When you first start the program you will see five 
different list views which are load, save, player, 
buffer and operators. 

The load and save lists show what different 


sample formats can be handled. Currently. SFX 
can load IFF 3 and 16- bits, raw sample data, PC 
RIFF-WAV. VOC, SUN/NEXT and the AIFF for- 
mat, Luckily, you do not have to know what the 
sample you are loading is as SFX can automati- 
cally detect this. 

As you might expect, SFX has a few extras 
when if comes to sample playing. Along with the 
normal Amiga's B-bit replay, it will also manage 
14-bit qualify and can even play 16-bit sample 
direct out oF Fast RAM. 

To find out about all of SoundFX's operators, 
you really need to read the AmlgaGuide that 
comes with it, as many of them are very sophisti- 
cated. Ft would probably help to have a sound 
engineer at hand for some of them, There are 
many strange and wonderful effects such as 
sample morphing. 3D cube parameter modula- 
tion, AM.-'GS synthesis, 64 band equaliser, com- 
pcsite/additive/sublraclive sound synthesis along 



SoMndfX'r simple interface 
Wrfm rttinjf p owmrfut features 

with 2D and 3D spectrum analysis. See what I I 
mean about that sound engineer! 

You should be warned, however, that some of 
these functions c^n take a long time to complete, 
as SFX does its processing with 32-bil Heating 
point operaligns for the highest sample quality.

Iconian has been around now for a good while and (his latest incar- 
nation adds some major new changes to its interface, You may have 
come across its new multi-window Formal before, and initially this 
may seem a little cumbersome, but once you have sized and snap- 
shotted the window in place it works very nicely indeed. 

The major change comes in the form of a new gadget class, 
Called pop-up it allows a large number of graphical options to be hid- 
den behind a single button. Click on the gadget and you can then 
choose from a selection of options 

The main us# for this is to allow you to choose from any one of ils 
15 drawing tools. Along with ihe normal draw and fill functions, you 
can also create various bevel boxes and different dithers. The type 
of bevel box or dither is again chosen using this new pop-up gadget 
- a great improvement over the old unwieldy menu options. 

Other handy features that Iconian has are the unlimiled undo and 
redo functions, Full on lino help, a full ARexx port, and you can have 
multiple projects open. 

For people who use them, Iconian has full Newlcons support, 
allowing you to create and change both the normal and Mewicon 
parts of the icon, in up to 256 colours. Please remember that Iconian 
is shareware. The registration fee is only 315 dollars. Well worth it 
for probably the best icon editor on the Amiga.

It is always nace to have a little relief

Obviously, you are going lo draw

comparisons to Teiris, as you have vari- 
ous shapes falling down the screen and 
each time you get a line it disappears 
and you score points. 

However, this version was written by 
the author because he was getting 
bored with the original game being loo 
easy. To make the game tougher he 
recreated (he Tetris game using hexa- 
gons. This allows you to have mom 
shapes, len in fact, and it now lakes six 
turns to Fully relate an object. 

As it runs on the Workbench the 
game is very system friendly and wiil 
happily multilask alongside any other 
programs you have running. It supports 
AG A and will adjust its window colours 
to get ihe best look. Also, check out the 
great statistic screen so you can tell if 
the game is cheating by holding back 
those long blocks lhat you need.

releasing a good Few of them, One side 
effect of this is that varying Datatypes 

Started lo allow the user to adjust certain parts of how the datatype worked. The Jpeg 
Datatype is a good example, and also the C++ Datatype is another one. 

The Jpeg Datatype is quite good because you gel a nice GUI through which you can 
adjust [he various aspects of the Datatype, but the C++ Datatype can only be changed 
by adjusting its environmental variables, via a text editor. 

Well DTFrefs gives you a single interface through which you can change a large num- 
ber ol your Amiga's Datatypes. Currently supported are ihe binary, executable, fonl, 
postscript, icon, Jpeg and photoCD Datatypes. All but the Jpeg Datatype can be 
adjusted within DTPrefs, while all DT Prefs does for the Jpeg Datatype is to run ils own

To use the following program 
you need to have I he Magic

II yen need io save space, your only 
option when it comes to pictures is 
io Jpeg them - the space saving 
Over more conventional formats can 
be phenomenal A file can be anywhere from 5 to 50 times smaller than conventional 
picture formats. 

What do you do if you ihen warn io toad a Jpeg into DPaint, or another program that 
does mat accept the Jpeg format Well, So save you from having to manually convert a file 
each lime you warn lo edit a Jpeg file, Auto PEG is here to save the day, AutoPEG will fool 
any program lhat iries to load a Jpeg into thinking it is actually loading a 24-bit IFF file. 

Once you have extracted the archive you Should install AutoPEG using Ihe supplied 
Install script Before you can actually see AutoPEG in action you need to set up its prefer- 
ences beforehand. Instead of just patching every program that tries to load a Jpeg, you 
can specify exactly which program should be palched. This allows programs that can 
handle Jpegs to use their own routines. 

To add a program you should first run that program, then start up the AutoPEG prefer- 

ences. You then need lo locale 



lhat program in the left lisl view 
and add it lo (he program patch list 
in the right Its! view, If you now try 
to load a Jpeg there will be no

Ynu may have noticed that ihe standard 
Amiga trashcan is pretty garbage. That 
is probably why there are a lot of 
replacement ones knocking around 
such as Blackhole. 

AjjpTrashcan works alighily differently 
from these others as usually they only 
allow you lo immediately delete any file 
you drop into them. The difference with 
AppTrashcan is that it works in the 
same way as the Mac’s Wastebasket, 
without having the limitations of the old 
Amiga's trashcan. 

When you run it you should see an 
Apploon appear on your Workbench. If 
you drop any programs into this, they 
will be moved to a temporary directory 
on your hard drive. If you then want to 
gel rid of these files you select 'Empty 
Trash' from the tools menu and every- 
thing will then be deleted, if you 
went you can change the trash icon 
and its name in both the icon and menu 

entry.

When it comes to manipulating icons 
they can be a little bit of a pain. Whgt 
do you do if you want to copy an icon 
image to another icon, there is no sup- 
ported way of using Workbench. So 
you either have to mess about loading 
up an icon editor such as fcoman and 
(hen do all your chopping and chang- 
ing, or revert to using the shell to copy 
ihe info files across, 

Well IconCopy gives a really simple 
way of doing just that, By having an 
Appwindow if you want to copy an 
icon's image to another icon. You just 
drop the new Image on the left side of 
the IconCopy window, and then drop 
the other old icon into the right side - 
couldn't be simpler.

ariier this year Amiga animators 
were treated to Animworks 2, a 
package that provided them with 
a reasonable amount of power for 
the price. So why do BllftersQft think 
MainActor Broadcast i$ worth so much 
more, fhgn? 

The answer according to the designers 
is that MainActor Broadcast is virtually a 
new program, with a more powerful inter- 
face and greater versatility than any of ils 
rivals Thankfully a closer look at the new 
features included in the program show this 
claim at least has some grounding. 

To give anyone unfamiliar with 
MainActor an idea of what the program is 
about it's important to realise it's more of a 
modular animation processing package 
rather than an animation maker in its own 
righl. It's a program where sound, anima- 
tion and transitions can be added together 
to make an overall project, which in turn 
can be converted to a format of your 
choice. 

Having installed the program using the 
standard installer method, the user will find 
Main Actor Broadcast has a simple inter- 
face that can run purely off menus qr, as 
will be more commonly preferred, by using 
the various windows that open up on 
Workbench. It all has a clean, accessible 
appearance in contrast to she function 
crowded front-end that accompanies 
Animworks2, 


CONVENIENT 

Essentially the program is controlled! by 
three mam windows, chough eadh of these 
provide access to other windows within, 
The most commonly used one will be the 
newly designed project manager, since it 
shows the animation currently activated 
and allows users to edit it in a variety of 
ways, It can also handle up to a hundred 
projects, which should keep even the 
busiest animator catered for. 

One of the first small but handy additions 
is that it’s possible to choose where 
MainActor Broadcast will access data 
from using the radio buttons in the project 
window. This gives you a convenient 
choosing between playing animations hack 
from RAM - the smoothest and fastest 
option - or from a storage device that will 
be slower but won't limit your animation by

The project menu allows users to 
access the sound editor, a window in 
which its possible to overlay your project 
with music ot sound effects, Incidentally, 
MainActor Broadcast's sound support is 
module independent, which means users 
can use the same sound information 
on every animalion or picture formal the

Since MainActor Broadcast is in part aimed at 
professionals working across different computer 
platforms, il$ worth considering how it shapes up 
□gainst rival programs on PC or Mac 

Adobe Premiere is probably the most powerful 
animation rival, boasting a pretty and tool-proof 
interface that makes MainActor Broadcast look 
dull, difficult and outdated A$ is often the case, 
however, this costs the user dear in terms of 
speed, and full-screen playback of animations is 
impossible without an M PEG card. 

The range of effects available, on the other 
hand, is wider, more impressive and easier to 


implemeni than is the case with MainActor 
Broadcast. Combining animation with sound, tran- 
sitions and effects proves more of an instructive 
process than is possible with the Amiga rival. 

Turning to the issue of money, however, Adobe 
software is always prohibitively expensive, and 
Amiga users don't mind losing gloss on the inter- 
face to get faster programs at a much more afford- 
able price. Add to that the fact that MainActor 
Broadcast is unrivalled in its ability to convert files 
between PC, Mao and Amiga platforms, and it 
does seem to hold its own. It's just a shame if s not 
as affordable as some may have hoped, 


While we're on the subject of affordability. users 
without a RIG board are not going to be able to 
lake full advantage ot MainActor Broadcast any- 
way, and many of the effects can be achieved 
when creating the animation, so you should take a 
look at MainActor Pro before you pay for this much 
more expensive version. 

MainActor Pro tacks support for some of the 
important formats available in MainActor 
Broadcast, it has an inferior interface and it lacks 
the ability to overlay effects on your projects. Thai 
said, it will make more sense for most people who 
just want to work with Amiga animation formats. 



CHRISTMAS 1995 












GRAPHICS 




Theatrical effect 




I Here's the full list of MainActor 

I Broadcast's new effect modules you 

I CaA overlay on the animation: 


3D stars: Creates a moving starfield 
Background; Makes one project a 
background for the main project 
Fade To Colour: Fades selected 
project to desired colour 
Fade To Image: Fades one project 
into another 

Four in One: Combine four projects 
into one animation 

Rotate: Rotate your project on the 

K.y or i an is 

Scales Rescale project to a new size 
Scroll In: Scrolls project in from any 
side ot the screen 
Scroll Out: Opposite of Scroll In 
■quencer: Puls up to five projects 
together to make one new project 
Text: Overlays project with text 
lines in various colours 
ipe Squares: Fades in another 
project using squares 


lo begin. Just as important as far as the 
program's audio capabilities go, however, 
is the fact that MainActor Broadcast has 
19 sound modules for all the mapr types 
of sound files, 

One ef the biggest additions to the pro- 
gram is found on the effects side of the 
project window. This allows users to over- 
lay a range of instant effects on top of the 
animation they’ve imported, ranging from 
various wipes to sequencing, rotation 
and star bursts. In fairness some could 
fce achieved in D Paint just as easily, bul 
others are a real bonus. 

It's particularly useful to be able lo scale 
animations down within Main Act or 
B'oadcast, allowing users to downsize iheir 
an mahons until they can run smoolhly 
enough lor their system. 

The demonstration disk gives some 
idea of how these effects can be used, 
afcert Chat its not the most impressive use 
of che program’s potential f can imagine.. 
What is for sure is that the effect descrip- 
tons and adjustability made available in 
ibis particular window make it an especial- 
ly accessible and attractive area of the 
ppgrarn. 




Perhaps most important of the main 
gadgets, however, is the control window. 
It's here that you begin to gain a sense of 
Main Actor Broadcast's unn vailed versa) ili- 
ty, lhanks to the inclusion of over 2d load 
and save modules for animations and pic- 
tures. 

Animators working to capitalise on the 
Strengths of different computer platforms 
will find the program's support for Mac and 
PC formats like Quicklime and AVI an 
absolute must. The same window also 
allows playback of the active project and 
viewing of individual frames. A third button 
opens an information box with all the 
del a its on the current animation you’re 
likely la need, including size m bytes, num- 
ber of cotour palettes, loop flags and flags 
for any special attributes. 

PROFESSIONAL 

Mam Actor Broadcast's suitability tor the 
professional is further increased by its 
support for any graphics card with up to 
IS. 7 million colours. This means, for 
example, you’ll * 1 be able to make anima- 
tions from Lightwave using 24-bit frames. 
On the olher hand, the program’s flexibility 
means you r l! be able to convert 24-bii ani- 
mations for viewing on a low res monitor. 

An ARexx port has been added to the 
program; which will allow users to control 
the whole package from within, say, AD 
Pro - a feature that can only help to max- 
imise the speed and convenience of the 
program as a whole. 

Criticism has to be aimed, however, at 



Pimy itTiinMlfMS, *hpw 
specific frames and 
wse the impressive 
support for animation 
formats in the control 
wrndoM 



Curtain Fall 


Despite being hilled as the multi -media 
and animation player tor Amiga users. 
Main Actor Broadcasl doesn't immediately 
induce a frenzy of excitemenl in the first 
time user. In fact, those who haven't 
experienced the value of the program's 
previous incarnations might he left won- 
dering what all the fuss is about. 

None of which changes the fact that 
Main Actor Broadcast is an important and 
useful advancement tn Amiga animation. 
Basically, there’s no alternative for many 
of the professional animators who need 
flexibility and processing power. 

Increasingly, professional animators 
are producing work on more than one 
hardware platform, and MainActor 
Broadcast will give such users more flexi- 
bility than ever before. Using Blittersoft's 
package will allow them, for example, to 
produce an animation in DPaint on the 
Amiga, then save it as an AVI file to 
incorporate it into a PC-based project. 
With the addition of built-in effect mod- 
ules and a more versatile interface, 
Main Actor has been given a complete 
overhaul. 

The only problem is that comprehen- 
sive support tor file formats and a limited 
range of effects won't justify the radical 
hike in price, and unless you've got a 
RTG board you're probably best opting 
for its older and cheaper sibling, 
Main Actor Pro, As it stands. I suspect 
only very serious animators will pay out 
for this flexible but pricey program, 

the manual, both for it's shoddy 
construction and, more seriously, its 
unhelpful layout. It takes a lot of knowl- 
edge for granted, there are no tutorials 
and what there is could have been a lot 
clearer than it is in places. Digrta and 
Softwood knock out well-written manuals 
with software selling at a third of the 
price, so there's no excuse for not sup- 
plying more helpful documentation with 
Main Actor Broadcast.

REVIEW 


f you re one of the tew who missed 
" f9j I our preview and subsequent 
[ review cl the Air Works master- 

piece, ihe next page wilt be music to your 
ears This is because the uninitiated Tune 
Buiidter'Aipeggio Now! provides an rnterac- 
r,E method of tailoring pre-reoorded music 
to your requirements. If you need a change 
of mood or want to add a dramatic crescen- 
do. the ideal slice ot music can simpiy be 
slotted in the correct spot. 

The whole process hinges on multiple 
edit points which have already been insert- 
ed into the 1 6-bit data on the accompanying 
CD. As a consequence, it's possible to take 
only what is required from the target tune 
and cut, copy and paste it to build a new 
lune of your own design. Tune Builder 
actually works by impeding the original 
16-bit dala from the accompanying CD 
From this it creates a more manageable 
8-bit dummy. And It's this 8-bit clone 
Wfoich is used Tor previewing edits durrnq 
assembly. 

Once your designer tune is 
complete, the software ~~ 
reverts to the imported 1 6-bit 
data on your hard drive- and 
compiles your master tune 
ft the format and quality ol 
your choice. 

From a father bland 
main screen the first port 
Of call is the Library sec- 
tion 'where you're free to 
Tiler and audition the 
tunes on offer. 

Obviously, with the sin- 
gle CD taster its useful- 
ness isn't particularly 
apparent, however as 
ycur Collection grows its 
airily to filter the available tunes soon

Assuming you've isolated a particular 
tune, the next step is to audition it, and to do 
sc you'll need To Tire up your CD-ROM drive 
l?y selecting the CD Player preview from the 
puS-dovms, At this point a tape deck control 
pops -up ready to preview your chosen tune 
or audition others. Once the Player Preview 
e active, amply doubleclicking on any track 
will automatically locate it and start playback 
direct from the CD in 1 6 bit stereo. As you 


The bass line 


select each track, the software provides a 
brief overview m the form of an editable 
note, the ID of the track and the CD on 
which it’s stored. Assuming you've found 
one or more tracks you want they can be 
tagged and then it's time to head off for the 
project builder to import your selection 
That done, the software sets about spook 
mg the 16-bit data Tram the CD from which 
an 8-bit preview sample is created. 
Assuming you've imported all the tunes 
you require, simply select one and it's off 
to the Tune Builder adiling screen. 

Once safely entrenched In the edilor, 
you're presented with a 
waveform of the entire tune 
segmented into numerous 
individual snippets - It's 
these seamless cuts that 
are ihe key to the whote 
process. 

To audition the tune simply 
click on the Play Original. If 
you're happy wilh things as 
they are you can export the 
tune in the rate and file format 
of your choice. If things aren't 
ideal you can adjust it by speci- 
fying a user-defined length. If 
you (hen dick on generate. Tune 
Builder automatically interpolate 
the existing track lo produce a 
customised version. 

If you don't like this initial mix, clicking 
on generate again will produce a com- 
pletely new version, if this still doesn't pro- 
duce perfecliort, the next option is lo use a 
combination of shift and mouse clicks lo 
select individual sections. The selection is 
then played in sequence lo generate a 
new custom-buifl lune. If you like it. again 
a simple dick on the Export will generate a 
new master. 

The final and most flexible method is to 
opt for a full edit session by employing ihe 
Assembler Bar to build a tune block by 
block. To use it you simply click on the 
block you like, drag it across and drop it on 


'Irl'f- 




4l| the major sampling formats, 
options and rates are supported 
icross Amiga, PC, Mac and others, 
And as you d aspect, there’s direct 
uppert for the Amiga family of 
dirocMO-disk sampling systems. 

Noi surprisingly, output quality is 
uperb. ranging from 8-bit mono to 
lull CD qualily stereo. The tracks 
themselves are generally excellent, 
offering a mix of styles with vocals 
and guitars blended with brass, 
strings, keyboards and percussion. 


Basically, Arpeggio NowT is a clas- 
sic example of power marketing. 
You get Tune Builder in its entirely 
plus an eight track taste of its 
potential via the single CD, 

If you like what's on offer, expand- 
ing the system is simply a matter of 
investing in more CDs. Essentially a 
no lose situation that provides a 
window on a development in Amiga 
music. Need I say more. Don't 
be cheap, give it a go, you won't 
regret it.

was a balmy day the day t went 
down to Bedfordshire to visit the 
premises of Hi Soft, the company 
behind such well-known products as the 
Squirrel SCSI Interface and the Agra sound 
sampler. 

HiScft’s history started way back in 
1980. even before the Amiga was a twinkle 
in day Miner's eye. The first product oft the 
Ha So It development line was a Pascal 
compiler, appropriately enough named 
HiSoft Pascal, and an assembler package 
for the Nascom 'home' computer. Like 
most computers of that era. it was really a 
hobbyist market with very much do-il- 
yourself products. 

It was in 1983 whan the first real home 
computer boom hit the UK with the release 
of the Spectrum, and HiSoft were in lihere 
fast, converting their Pascal and assembler 
to suit the Spectrum's nOn-CP/M environ- 
ment, It was at this point that the assem- 
bler gol the name it was to keep through all 
its incarnations to the present day: 
DevPac. 

By 1 985, Z80 machines were starting to 
become old hat, so Hi Soft's head 
hodCho, David Link, was looking 
for a new direction. He looked 
very seriously at the PC market, 
but as he comments: “We 
looked at who we would be 
competing with [in the 
computer language 
publishing field], of 
course the answer 

Borland So we said 
'Forget it', at that 
point." The obvious

conclusion that HiSoft 
came to was to deve- 
lop for the new S300Q- 
baseeE machines lhal 
were emerging, like 
the Atan ST. DevPac 
was swiftly ported, 
helped by the prior development of a ver- 
sion for ihe Sinclair QL r and a Pascal was 
worked on. although not to fruition. At this 
point, the obvious language to work on 
had to be BASIC, David Link recalls: 
"At the time it [working on a BASIC 
compiler as opposed to an interpreter] was 
innovative.' 1 

It was, in fact, an interactive, incremen- 
tal compiler; one which behaved like an 
interpreter but was actually a compiler, a 
fact that most magazines seemed to 
ignore and as a result HiSoft BASIC suf- 
fered in comparison with GFA Basic and 
the others that were around. Over the 
years, HiSoft, in search of other comple- 
mentary products for their line, took over

Until about 1990, HiSoft resolute

machines, the Amiga became a lot

Cinema 4D is one of the two

gram with a wide range of unique 
facilities not readily found in 
eilher Lightwave or Imagine, 

Features like accurals sunlighl, where the direc- 
tion, angle and intensity q 1 your scene's 'sun 1 are 
governed by latitude,, longitude and lime settings. 

Cinema 4 D also provides easy inverse kinemat-

actors within a scene, their 
motions, the animation of their 
textures and eflects to apply to 
them. Bui Cinema 4D also has 
the same ease of use as 
Lightwave when it comes to 
actually setting up a scene, with 
freely positionable objects 
shown in a variety of 3D views 
When it comes to texturing an 
object in Cinema 40, all the 
guesswork is taken out of the process by using a 
mesh which you can see wrapped around 
the shape you are texluring, and which can be 
adjusted lo suit your needs.

a moot point, because at ihe end of the

according to HiSoft 


O asked David Link whal he would 
tike to see happening with Ihe 
Amiga over the nest year or so. “I ihink 
that the A 1200 as a base machine is 
very important because it’s competitive 
when com pared to a PC. To be honest, 
although you can build your own PC, 
and; it can be cheap, any like for like PC 
system is going to bo more expensive, 
not cheaper, because the entry level 
system specification has gone 
up and memory is always 
going to be expensive. 

"Therefore, I think we 
are going to find that the 
entry level PC is not 
going to become any 
cheaper and might, in 
fact, become slightly more 
expensive. Consequently, 
the A 1200 is going to be per- 
fectly poised to S-ucceed in the 
entry level market, with a higher 
spec than an entry level PC and 
much better performance, even with the 
current A1200. 

“I believe that what the man on the 
street wants is a machine that can run 
all his word processing, general home 
stuff, comms, CD. plus the odd graphics 
program, He could probably comfort- 
ably do that on a 6Mb A 1200 He won't 
be able to get away with less than a

it for IB months. In a market which 
wasn't dearly defined, coming in with a 
cheap machine to try and take on the 
console market would have been the 
wrong way to approach the marketing ot 
the machine in my view, The Amiga 
1200 Is not a console, it’s not a games 
machine and it has never been put for- 
ward as such a machine; it's a home 
computer, 

“People have only just started talking 


about home computers as more serious 
toys, if you like. People are actually talk- 
ing aboul the reality of using a home 
computer for various subjects, CDs. for 
instance, have done a lot to firm up peo- 
ples' views of a home computer, and the 
A1200 is perleclly poised to fulfil all 
those requirements. 

"No. t think ihe bundle is well-priced. 
I'm sure there are many people who 
would liked to have seen it cheaper and

O follow-up to the phenomenally suc- 
cessful SCSI controller for the 
A120Q, the Surf Squirrel gels it appella- 
tion from ihe fact thal it also includes a 
high-speed serial port. The SCSI con- 
troller chip in the Surf Squirrel itself has 
been changed for a faster version, so 
you can now expect transfer rates of up 
to 3, 2Mb 'sec on an accelerated machine 
with al least 2Mb/sec on a standard 
A1200. 

The design of the Squirrel remains 
similar, but the size of Ihe casing has had 
to be enlarged to accommodate the extra 
circuitry required for the 9-pin serial port, 
The serial port will happily operate at 
speeds up to 11 5,200 baud (the standard 
Amiga port is only rated up to 38,400) 
and Hi Soft have managed to push it to 
double that. Stand by for a serial network

O h is little box might well be HiSoft's biggest seller to date, when 
il finally hits the streets. The Squirrel Mpeg is an external 
case, much like the one your CD-ROM drive slls in r and it is 
designed to sit in your SCSI chain What it does is take an Mpeg 
stream from CD. or any other suitable source, and play it back. 

HiSoft are busy working on all the tools necessary to fast for- 
ward, rewind and so on, but even in Its raw state, the Squirrel Mpeg 
provides a far superior picture lo the best that the CDi's FMV car- 
tridge can offer Where Ihe CDi’s. output has odd vertical lines down 
the screen as though it were on laid paper and definite artifacting 
on areas of aim ost-$ ingle colour, the Squirrel Mpeg is as silky 
smooth as a silky smoolh thing 

The other great benefit to this box is the tact that il is not limited 
in which machine il can be used with. Because it sits externally in 
your SCSI chain, it means that any machine from the humble AGQ0 
to the mighty Draco can use it. HiSoft even showed me the Squirrel 
Mpeg unplugged from an Amiga and taken with a CD-ROM drive 
downstairs to the telly and plugged straight into it, 

This means you will have a fairly portable, standalone VideoCD 
player for the same money as you paid to have a computer depen- 
dant Mpeg playback device. What’s more, the Squirrel Mpeg will be 
supplied with a remote control device, so you won’t even have to 
get up from your chair lo fiddle with controls. 




L 


link, everyone l One of Ihe disadvan- 
tages thal everyone agreed on was Ihe 
lack of autobooting on the original 
Squirrel HiSoft have gone 
some way to eradicating 
this problem, although it 
can never be overcome 
entirely owing to the limitations 
of the PCMCIA port. 

They have added a program ihat 
sits in memory, even when the machine 
has been sofl rebooted and allows the 
Squirrel lo- autoboot. 

Obviously, the program has lo be run 
before this can happen, so when the 
machine is switched on the first time, a 
boot floppy has to be used. Thereafter, 
when the machine is reset using the Ctri- 
Amiga- Amiga combination the Squirrel 
will autoboot.

case you missed it, here's the low down. DiskMagic is HiSoft's oniry into ihe

by Diskmaster, but is a lot more configurable than its distant ancestor. 

One of DiskMagic's unique features is the fact ihat it treats archives as fhougti 
they were directories. That is lo say, should you have an Lha file on your hard drtvil

C arrying on with their tradi- 
tion of putting their enhre 
PD collection onto CD, this 
is 17 Bit's fifth bumper CD. Access 
to all the files on the disc is through 
an Aminol -style Amiga Guide which 


has got to ha (he best way of 
organising such an index, and 
makes finding any file very 
straightforward. 

In 17 Bit's case, all their disks 
have been categorised into a num- 
ber of sections, with a separate 
specific AGA section. One interest- 
ing point is that (here are only 
throe ECS demos compared to the 
very large selection of AGA 
demos. Time lor all you demo 
freaks to upgrade to an A120O I 
think. 

As usual, all the files are in the 
DMS format, so if you want to 
extract a large number of disks it is 
going to take a long time. One plus 
point is that you can choose the 
destination device, so if you have 
two or more drives, or use the FMS 



As usual this is up lo 17 Bit's 
standards, with the contents 
aging lo cover every aspect

Fresh Fish K 


Cleil Mohr takes a look at some t Os that 



might be filling a fern stockings this Christmas 


□ red Fish is one of those 
Amiga institutions you just 
do not seam to find any- 
where else. Lord knows how long 
he has been pulling compilation 
disks together, but the huge 
amounts of programs he was deal- 
ing with made the inevitable move 
to CD d necessity. 

The Fresh Fish CDs provide you 
with a large selection of 'serious' 
ready-to-run Amiga software, as 
opposed to the Frozen Fish CDs 
which are designed for BBS use, 
and have everything archived, 

The bulk ol the software is 
organised into the same direclory 
hierarchy as Aminet, making 


locating a specific type of program a 
doddle. However, if you have any 
problems finding a program, AKwick 
is available, or an AmigaGuicfe 
index for you to peruse. 

As I mentioned, this CD is really 
aimed at (ho serious user because 
along with the normal utilities there 
is the full, ready-lo-run distribution 
of all the Amiga Ports of the various 
GNU programs, You can also find 
the full Commodore developer 
include files for version 37,39 and 
40 Of Amiga DOS, Another excellent 
CD aimed for the more serious 
Amiga user.

The Global Amiga Experience 



— i his is a good idea for a CD. 
Instead of the usual picture or 
ulalrly collections, (he Global 
Amiga Experience is a compilation of 
line besi commercial and shareware 
c-rograms available, ready for you to try 
out. When I say fry out, what l mean is 
1h©re are demos of commercial pro- 
grams Well, this is not quite true as 
mere are full versions of Imagine 2, 
Scala 1.13, VistaPro 1, Distant Suns 4, 
Carissa 1.1 r Edge 1.72 and X-Copy, 
Th s is quite a tot of stuff for you to use, 
and included are upgrade discounts for 
inese programs. 

All the programs aro grouped into 
whal sort of type they are - databases, 
camnna, programming, DTP. ray tracing, 
video, painting, image pro, cad, anims 


and music. Just a small selection of the 
programs you can try out are HeliOS. 
Blitz Basic, CanDo. WordsWorih, 
Pagestream, ProWrite, TurboText, 
Super Jam, Octamed 6, Deluxe Music 2. 
This is not to mention the huge number 
of available graphics programs 
This is a great CD. Straightforward 
Workbench organisation makes it easy 
to find whatever program you are look- 
ing for. and icons are available that set 
up any necessary fonts or assigns for a 
program to run. Therefore, there is no 
hassle in getting to use programs, if 
you want to try out some of the best 
commercial Amiga programs then this 
CD will delianlly be of great interest to 
you.

inally, a CD dedi- 
I cated to AGA 
users. When you 
fir si open ihis CD'S icon 
you are presented with a 
very nice selection of 
MagicWB icons, each 
directory category having a 
very nice MagicWB image 
corresponding to whatever 
is in there. 

Pretty much every area of 
Amiga PD is covered here, 
from Eric Schwartz’s 
Morphy the Magician to a large collection of AGA demos. If you 
have collected any of the PD AGA slide shows that have been 
dished oul by ihe boat load, you couldnj have missed one ol the 


NFA produced ones - Ihe notorious BodyShop series springs to 
mind for some reason. Well, as NFA put this CD together there are, 
of course, a few slide shows, and other exclusive NFA productions, 

Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Big Girls Special and a faytracing 
slide show all make an appearance. As you may have guessed. Big 
Girl Special has a few bare breasted ladies in there, bul it does 
seem strange that they bothered at all because there are only 
aboul ten pictures. 

A reasonable selection of games and demos are ready to run, 
even though many will not run straight oh an A400G. One unusual 
feature is that demos or Ihe full versions of every Amiga Doom 
clone are in the games section, all ready to run.. There is also a 
good selection of utilities, ail of which are also ready to run. 

Other things include various programming examples and pro- 
grammer-type stuff. The last year's worth of Amiga reports are also 
included which are always good reading, along with other electronic 
Amiga magazines. 

Along with the ready-to-njn programs, you can find a lol of extra 
archived material in most of ihe directories, with demos included, 
as many of these need to be run off iheir own floppy, Luckily, all 
these files have icons with 
ihem, (hat are set up to 
unDMS the fifes onto disk 
for you. 

Overall, Ihis a reason- 
able disc. It is completely 
full, so has plenty on it for 
you to play around with. 

Any problems with running 
ihese demos ,or games is 
not the fault of the parson 
who put the CD together 
as the use of the MagicWB 
icons and Ihe good layout 
makes the CD very nice 
and easy to use,

REVIEW 


If 


resting a dirt cheap local area, 
rework between two Amigas can 
hardly be described as a unique 
concept. Numerous attempls have been 
made with varying degrees of success, 
most notably being (he Pa met approach, 
Line Flexi-Link the Parnet system employs 
a custom parallel cable which delivers 
roughly 40k per second in ideal conditions, 
with somewhere between 20,' '30k more 
often the norm on most systems 
On Ihe plus side, Parnet is Freeware and 
hence completely gratis. All you need is the 
software, a soldering iron, and she neces- 
sary odds and ends courtesy or Maplins to 
construct ihe cable. On the downside, fid- 
dling with cabling and soldering irons is 
rover as straightforward as it looks on 
paper, In addition, the actual software is rel- 
atively basic and fairly slow in comparison 
Mir the Flexi-link alternative. 

Once a Parnet fink is established 
between Ihe two machines, a network 
folder Is created containing the various 
items that have been mounted from the 
rencte machine. Remote volumes such as 
floppies appear as drawers, and although it 
doesn't automatically support items which 
have been left out on the remote machine, 
JTs stilt possible to leave them out manually, 
Crude but effective. 

Now you're aware of the ultra cheap 
Hive, it's time to put the slightly more 
expensive Flexi-Link option to the test. 
Needless to say. speed is at the heart of 
Iny network and in this area, Flexi-Link 
scores- well with an average transfer 
delivering between 50/60k per second. 

In real terms this means a 1Mb file wilt 
traverse the net - using the standard 
Workbench drag and drop technique - in 
approx Innately 20 seconds Quite 
respectable considering the asking price. If 
that's still noi fast enough you can opt for 


Whistles and bells 


Aside from the basic and Turbo trams- 
r modes, Flexi-Link also ships with 
an nice collection of utils. A simple 
Speed Test util reveals all in reference 
lo transfer speeds between the two 
machines. Another excellent addition 
s Flexi execute, a program which 
allows you to run software on one 
machine from its partner in crime. 

On a lighter note, the Flexi-Link 
nackage also ships with Naughts & 
rc&ses and a battleships done enti- 
ll&d flexi-Ships. There's the curious 
addition of a mouse sharing utility, so 
you can use a remote mouse - quite 
. Jhen this would prove a necessity is a 
mystery, but it’s there if need arises. 

Back on a more serious note. Flexi- 
Link also supports Ami-FlleSafe for 
those who Lake their OS and file stor- 
qo seriously. However, the makers of 
Flexi-Link do recommended you con- 
tact them prior to purchase lo ensure 
ihe version of Ami-File-Safe you're 
using is fully compatible 



Air you orf ip rp-irf and save your conf^i 



she Turbo mode As the name suggests, 
this dramatically increases transfer to 
between S0/9CK per second, 

Needless to say, there is a downside 
which takes the form of screen blanking 
on both machines. However, if you have a 
large amount of data to transfer and can 
live with the inconvenience of the 


Point and ciich mown t 
a«Je£rJaiM. Your 

choice to decide what 

wilt appoar pr.^rirun 
from (he romolct 


blanking, it provides the fastest cable con- 
nection transfer available. 

Improved basic transfer of between 
2Q/3Qk per second may not be enough to 
tempt too many people away from its PD 
alternative. Fortunately for Flexi-Link, 
there's a lot more to effective networking 
that raw speed. Unlike its counterpart. 
Flexi-Link does support icons that have 
been left out on the desktop including both 
floppies and hard drives - which appear in 
their original form on the remote machine. 
Better still, volumes from the remote 
machine are treated as if they're actually 
hard wired to the host. As a result, you can 
oven format a remote (loppy or hard dnve 
when (he need arises. 

A nice much is the auto assigning ot 
directories between the linked machines. 
Any commands not found on the host 
machine will automatically be searched for 
on the remote End result - seamless file 
Sharing and assignment requiring in mini- 
mal duplication of system resources. Why 
have two copies of a program nr directory 
you only need once In a blue moon?

no competition 

The big question is, should you stick with Parnet or opt for Flexi-Link? 
in my opinion there's no contest. When you've bought the necessary 
cabling and gone through the hassle of soldering it all together lo 
construct a Parnet cable. £30 tor Flexi-Link is too good to miss. 

Apart from the ease of lj$c. Flex I- Link offers a whole host of 
fairly advanced features which Parnet simply can't match - fully 
implemented file and hardware sharing being the most notable. 

As you can probably see, courtesy ot ihe screen shots, user 
defined set-up is extremely well catered for with various options for 
customising which volumes am mounted and how they're accessed 
via the remote machine. 

My only complaint is that the software does not allow you to shut 
down and restart the network, or alter your initial configuration via a 
commodity, Leave this minor knit picking aside and you arrive al one 
Of the cheapest and best ways to bring two Anmgas together.

REVIEW 



ractal landscape generation 
was one of the 30 tools that 
made the Amiga great before 
any of the other popular platforms were 
really powerful enough to do it, Vista Pro 
and Scenery Animator wore responsible 
lor making people know whal the 
acronyms USGS and DEM actually stood 
lor, a teat only previously available to car- 
tographers and geologists. Vista Pro and 
Scenery Animator seem to have faded 
somewhat into obscurity, but there's no 
excuse not to keep up with your e preform- 
ing tasks now that World Construction Set 
is here, 

WCS is not that new to the Amiga, but 
wo haven't reviewed it before and with a 
new version coming out after Christmas, it 
looked like a good time to be reviewing 
the current version. As il stands, World 
Construction Set arrives in a hefty box 
containing five disks and a very meaty 
manual Indeed, Weighing in at over 650 
pages, this is one lomo that really couldn't 
be ring bound The mangel is very well 
written with a light tone that conceals 
so me of the more complex topics Shat it 
covers. You never feel like you are trawl- 
ing through some turgid textual treatise, 


FORMAT 


As for its organisation, it isn't too bad 
at alt. There's a well-specified index and 
the tutorials are near the front, with refer- 
ence material at the back. All the eco-, 
geo- and cartological terms (yes. alright. 

I know 'cartotogical' isn’t a real word, but 
it did make a nice piece of text, How 
about Photo-, Geo- and Cartographical 
instead) are very well explained in lay- 
man's terms. 

The software itseif is easy enough to 
install using the standard installer 
process. Once you have installed World 
Construction Sot and double-clicked for 


luhoeq? 


* 


World Construction Set uses MUI. 
otherwise known as Magic User 
Interface, as the basis for its GUI. MUI 
is provided with the package, but If 
you are a regular reader of Amiga 
Computing, you’ll remember that we 
put a full copy of MUf on our 
Cover Disk back in Juty 1995, Without 
ft, although you’ll still be able to make 
full use of World Construction Set, 
you won't he able to change the way 
World Construction Set looks, or, at 
least, save those changes, 

More and more shareware pro- 
grams use MUI as their basis, hut 
World Construction Set is the first 
commercial application (that l know of 
anyway) to make use of this handy 
Interface tool. Stefan Sfuntz. the 
author of MUI, has promised a new 
version will be ready by the time you 
read this with even more features and 
hopefully more speed.

I second that 


World Construction Bet's motion paths con be slightly 
awkward to manipulate, but if you have LlghtWave 
handy you can always use Layout motion paths from 
that program in World Construction Set, The same is 
true the other way, which means you can match up 
your camera's paths in bnth programs and arrange 
your animation for easy composition. 

World Construction Set also supports proper Z 
buffering, LightWave doesn’i yet. which can be used to 
en$ure (hat things that ought to be behind hills stay 
behind hilts. A Z buffer is a bit like an alpha channel in 
that it is a greyscale pseudo representation of your 
colour artwork, but instead of each shade of grey rep- 
resenting a different level of transparency, each grey in 
a Z buffer indicates a different distance from ihe cam- 
era, with darker shades moving progressively further 



WCS 's feature* are 
of LighiWave'i 


from the lens. 

You can still use the Z buffer image that World] 
Construction Set creates in LightWave, it'll just take] 
more work. Because you know that each grey is a dif- 
ferent distance, Hie first thing to do is nun Ihe Z bi 
image through an image processor ol some sort. 
Select each of the level ol grey in turn and create 
new image just containing that particular level of 
which should then be brightened until it is pure white. 

Then you will need to save out each of the rev 
images with a suitable extension; 1.2km. iff would 
one idea for a plane of grey lhai is 1 .2 kitomelres from 
the camera. Once you have done Ihis, you will need i 
set them up in Lightwave as clip-mapped, single 
gon rectangles, front projection mapped with the ce 
image, al the appropriate distance from the camera. 


the first time on its icon, you will be pre- 
sented with a window asking for a screen 
mode. World Construction Set works in 
any screen mode including those offered 
by graphtcs cards and opens a 16 colour 
screen. Once World Construction Set 
has opened its screen you'll only be

REVIEW 



ing This definitely teeis contrary to the 
GUI principle, but comes in very handy if 
yflu are only running World Construction 
Sel on a low resolution screen. In fact, 
even on a screen measuring 1024 x 768 
there isn't enough room to have all the 
windows World Construction Set pro- 
duces open at the Same time. 

So, anyway, we've now opened the 
■71051 important two windows in World 
Construction Set: the map view* and the 
camera view. These two are where you'll 
spend most of your time, tweaking the 
wav your landscape looks, tint you card 
open them on their own. As soon as you 
open the map view, the necessary Map 
View Control window also appears And 
rages the camera view up and running, 
you’ll need to open ihr Parameter Modulo 
window, open the Motion Editor window 
Iran that and then open the Camera view 
widow from there! 


WINDOW VIEW 






It doesn't slop here though folks. 
Once you've clicked on the camera view 
button at the bottom of the Motion Editor 
prctow, two further windows will appear 
in addition to the camera view. These 
are a fairly redundant compass (redun- 
dant unless you don't have the map view 
open, that is) and a further last of settings 
pertaining to the camera view Phew! 

All these windows don't stop World 
Construction Set from being a joy to use 
-just make sure you are running a com- 
modity that allows you to click on any 
part of a window to bring it to the front 
like the one supplied with Workbench or 
MutfSCX. Then you won't have to worry 
.atroul anything other than the aesthetics 
cH windows overlapping one another. 

World Consiruction Set is definitely a 
complex package, and one that can get 
a bit complicated and unfriendly al times, 
tut in Ihe same way as Imagine, this rs 
oni^ because Of the vast array Of Options 


Rnd the uiord liras... 


World Construction Set is a fine program. II can be 
a little complicated end unintuitive to get into at first, 
but the learning curve isn't too stoop. Once you 
have grasped the basics, you'll seon find yourself 
thinking of all the possibilities it offers and that you 
couki achieve given enough tmne and patience. 

The Tenderer isn't as fa si {in my subjective opin- 
ion) as VistaPro's and it doesn't yet offer reflective 
water or clouds. However, given its superb compati- 
bility with Lightwave, the clouds shouldn't pose too 
much of a problem. ! would like to see more 


example DEMs with the product in future, perhaps 
distribution on CD or at least with a CD would be a 
possibility. 

Finally, if you have even the slightest interest in 
geology, geography, ecology or even political hist- 
ory and you teach these subjects, then World 
Construction Set will be an invaluable tool if you are 
willing to put in the hours. If you don’t have the 
slightest educational bent, other fractal landscape 
packages are cheaper, but World Construction Set 
beats them all hands down for features,

open to the user. Unlike Imagine, howe- 
ver World Construction Set is presented 
with a logical interface that has a bit 
of panache. It's also friendly 
towards graphics cards, unlike the 
aforementioned program. 

Some of its features do need a little 
reworking to make them lop notch 
though For instance, it your program is 
going to work with lightWave, it's 
probably a good idea lo try to conform to 
some of the ways Lightwave works, The 


particular example 1 am thinking of is tho 
Arc view setting in World Construction 
Set, This is equivalent lo the Camera 
Lens setting in Lightwave, yet the 
two share little similarity. You’ll need 
to experiment before you will be 
able to match ihe two lo your tastes. 
A simple change lo World Const ru cl ion

indicating Ihe conversion between the 
two would be enough to cheer me up no 
end, /TW

Q uropress's spelling package 
provides six exercises ihemed 
around a fairground II is designed 
tor children to practice around 4,000 
commonly misspelt words in a 
variety of different exercises. 

Games include Mechanical Grab, 
where a child must recognise words 
such as choosing the correct ending, 
or Haunted House, where the player 
has to deal wiih homophones, and it 
also allows the parent or teacher to 
add their own words, Furthermore, a 
special databank has been, provided 
for children with dyslexia and mild 
learning difficulties 
Ore exercise sets the child a 
crossword to complete, which can 
be quite challenging due to the 
nature of the clues. However, it's a 
groat way in letting them get to grips 
with words and their meanings, and 
disguises learning as a fun game. 
This is true of the other exercises 
too, and for the younger player, 
there is always some incentive for 
their persistence - a good ploy with 
educational packages. 

It's all very nicely presented with 
colourful graphics and cheery music, 
though I doubt it would really stretch 
its appeal to the 16-year old 
However, for the 7 to 12-year old 
it wilt work vary wall, with a

CL’s Micro German gums to take the novice language learner nghr 
through lo GCSE. it has 24 programs which cover whiten and spo- 
ken German and prepares the user for the oral and written exam. As 
well as suiting Ihe school learner, il is also tailored for the businessman 
as it generates business letters, and if also covers verbs and grammar. 

LCL used lo include a tape with their language package but now they 
have incorporated speech into ihe actual program. Although this does 
sound rather robotic, it does work quite well in giving the user an idea of 
the correct pronunciation, 

Overall, the content of the package is quite commendable with alt 
necessary aspects covered. However, it's the actual presentation which lets the package down. The interface 
looks unpleasant and is not intuitive to use, and this is likely lo frustrate, especially in a title- like this where the 
user should be able to concentrate solely on the learning and not how to make the thing actually work. It also 
looks extremely dated and is hardly likely lo make 'street-cred' conscious teenagers want to use it.

his German package includes six games 
which children aged fl to 16 si u dying attain- 
ment targets 3 + 4 can enjoy. The whole point of 
the package is lo enable you to improve on your 
German speaking, reading, and wnting. 

10 out of 10 covers all these features in vari- 
ous forms, although all the information from the 
National Curriculum is there and can be printed 
out. For example, you can keep permanent 
records of your success, achievements and, 
more unfortunately, what you need to improve on. 

With all these excellent ways to display the data in a record- like form,, it helps teach- 
ers and parents get an idea of how their pupils and children are getting on and where, 
exactly, Ihey require help. 

The games are fairly basic ones - there are six in all. The first is The Cat, which is 
basically a quick multiple choice game with a 
novelty addition The faster you are the more 
points you get You can team quite quickly 
because you can instantly recognise the 
correct answer by a simple process of 
elimination. 

Overall, the German package contains 
some important subjects 1 hat are mosl 
common for GCSE, School, Family and 
Sport, as well as all the other seme nee and 
grammatical sides.

O Q ouf of 10's Spelling tutor differs 
from most of the other packages 
because it is aimed at nine -ye fit olds 
and younger, not to mention catering for 
children with special needs such as 
dysl&xia. 

As with the entire series of 1 0 lout of 
1 0 educational packages it contains six 
games which all differ from each other 
Most of the games must be completed 
to a reasonably strict time limit, so not 
only musl you know ihe ins and ouls of 
the subject you are studying, you must 
also be quick on the mouse 
What the 10 out of IQ series feature 
so consistently are the bright colourful, 
chunky graphics which really makes il 
appealing to the child. It's mouse dri- 
ven, making it the easiest way lor chil- 
dren to get lo grips with the games, If 
the child cannot use the mouse proper- 
ly. il may be an idea to practice i occa- 
sionally until they are fully confidant and 
comfortable. 

The package covers phonetics, 
rhymes, word matching and sy tables, 
not to mention all ihe basic grammatical 
rules, 

Not only is the package specially 
developed For ihe under nines, it also 
caters for children who have earning 
difficulties. Not many packages can 
boast all these features as well nts serv- 
ing the underdeveloped. If ym.tr child 
does have difficulty with spelling, this is 
the simplest and most effective package 
available.

O be Micro English package from 
LG has to be the mo$l simplistic 
and of fee live available, mainly because 
of the extensive features the Micro 
package contains. 

When you purchase Micro English, 
ngi only do you get the two disks con- 
taining programs that will undoubtedly 
improve your grammar, pronunciation 
and vocabulary, you will also receive a 
book, entitled 'Countdown to GCSE 
English.' This happens to be one of the 
most informative books around, It'll give 
you tips on managing lime, how to 
answer I he questions, sample exams 
and the oral exam ft truly is the 
most useful book you could read in 
preparation for your exams. 

The disks contain many programs to 
help you revise all the topics concerned 
in Ihe Matronal Curriculum - English 
grammar, figures of speech, words 
commonly confused, punctuation, irreg- 
ular plurals, and if none if ihese turn up 
in (he GCSE exam 1 will be extremely 
surprised. 

Whai makes Micro English enjoyable 
and easy to u$e is the fact that the 
computer actually speaks A series of 
speech samples are included on Ihe 
disk and they regularly appear. 
Basically, the idea is to improve your 
spelling, wife the computer mentioning 
fee word and you spelling fl. Obviously, 
this coufd possibly ignite some major 
flaws, the quality of (he speech being 
an example, With so many samples 
you can't really expect them lo cram in 
as many high frequency ones on disk 
as possible, so although the pronuncia- 
tion is a little muffled they are still 
understandable. 

Overall, LCL's Micro English is fairly 
reasonable, H may not have the graph* 
ics and presenlation other packages 
have but it is still, none-the-less, good 
value for money.

These days, all the educational packages for the Amiga are sold in shops all 
over the country - afl of them boasting good value for money. After noticing 
how technology has advanced educationally, you can t go far wrong by Intro- 
ducing fun games for children to play while they unexpectedly learn far mor 
than they realise. 

The Amiga is one of the most user-friendly, easiest, cheapest and effective 
computers to date, and very young children can only learn faster and far mart 
efficiently, whereas Microsoft's Windows 95 poses many problems for adults, • 
not to mention young infants. 

What makes the Amiga educational market far superior than many other for- 
mats is the wide range of topics and age groups covered and it only remains k 
be seen whether schools will now introduce Amigas into part of their learning 
process.

|^Vhat kind of affect does electronic leaching have 
w on parents, teachers and more importantly the 
children^ For instance, how could you stir children 
away from playing the latesf games to using 
education packages for extra-curric- 
ular learning. 

I spoke to David Hirst, the 
Commercial Director from 
Europress Software, the comp- 
any responsible for the excellent 
Fun School packages. I wanted 
to find out more about their 
products and how and why they 
are used lo improve children’s 
learning capabilities. I began by 
interrogating him about fee software, 

Firstly, when children are studying the National 
Curriculum up to eight hours a day at school, how 
can companies such as Euro press Software make 
their packages appealing enough for the children to 
come home and pursue the subjects electronically? 
Hirst believes it's all aboul talking to the right people: 
it's just getting to grips with what the NC aclually 
wants, by discussion with (hose professionals who 
are doing it every day and then by taking traditional 
game techniques and putting the iwo together,’’ 


it is important to pitiii the Isuel ol 
ftultit (orreitk mil to bring in. aMtali such 
appnurate [Mews that befits the 
age group 


There are many differenl arguments as to how 
dren concentrate and achieve more., Being left !c 
work out the games lor themselves and learning Irom 
self- 1 union and experimentation could be (he most 
effective. Hirsl outlines the computers benefits; 
the most important thing is to mix teaching, ex. 

mentation, and reinforcement. 
Computers are better at 
last two." 

With this m mind, f asks 
David what he thought the e 
rest ways of teaching childre 
were, and the best ways vf 
maintaining their concentration 
and interest, especially with ll 
different age groups to cater for. it rs important 
pitch fee level of drfficulty correctly and to bring 
additionally, such appropriate challenges that befit 
the age group. A child of 4-7 will require large a 
colourful graphics, presenting simpie and reeetn i 
problems to solve, whereas at 5-1 1 some fast act! 
dexterity, and logic are required, plus tha inlroductioi 
of traditional gaming techniques, At 15-1 6-years, tl 
emphasis must be on results, so the gameplay 
toned down and clever leaching methods ar 
employed." If a child was left alone with the g

Magic Machine and Weighty Weapons. 
All these imaginatively named puzzles 
are basically jazzed up versions of old 
mathematical exercises such as out- 
puts, number recognition and simple 
adding, subtracting, multiplying and 
division games. 

The Fun School series has achieved 
the status as the UK's top-sefling range 
of educational software and it's quite 
easy to sea why. The graphics are 
excellent and imaginative along wilh pol- 
ished presentation and a superb range 
of sound effects. If your child is strug- 
gling with maths, then the Fun School 
package should be top of your list. 


and happened to be troubled! withoul parental super- 
[ vision*, don't you think the child may get flustered or 
■Even bored. Hirst refers lo the mam aims of the pack- 
ige: h .„ if this is the case, Ihe software has failed. It 
should bo intuitive," 

One of the problems that 
may occur if students go home 
every night and learn an extra 
section of a subject using *he 
computer is that they would 
lose the benelit of teaching 
because they would quite 
dearly not be a case that 
requires help. The pupil would 
a-so gain advantages over 
other students. 

That's life” he said. This is not a communist soci- 
ety. Thankfully, we don’t work to the lowest common 
denominator. The kids with the benefit of interested 
parents will bring on those without, so everyone 
flams," 

A problem that can also arrive from these 
sequences is that when the child advances In a 
ticular topic, they will return to school and learn 
exactly the same things. That surely would 
become repetitive for the child - losing the benefit of 


. it is 4 uisll-kniip fat that she «f 
the prime mm intm ramputEis enter tie home is 
it tin belief that tlieir uresen ini 
benefit the (hildren 


education itselt. Hirst believes it could be a problem: 
it could be. but we maintain that teachers teach, 
computers reinforce, so teachers can teach The 
next level with a better foundation on knowledge in the 
Children," 

If parents should happen lo buy themselves a com- 
puter for business work or per- 
sonal use, the majority of children 
would obviously see it as a 
games machine rather than a 
working computer. Hirst dis- 
agrees with ihe fact lhai the com- 
puter is looked upon as a form of 

entertainment: "... it is a well- 

known fact that one of the prime 
reasons why computers enter the home is in the belief 
that iheir presence will benefit the children." 

With the Amiga being relatively cheap, compared to 
anything like PCs and Apple Macintoshes, would it be 
the perfect computer for children to learn with at 
school, especially with its ease of use, Hirst dis- 
agrees: "although the Amiga scores tor its graphics, 
particularly when price is taken into account, In my 
opinion the new Windows 95 interface is much belter 
and the Apple Mac has been better for a nearly a 
decade." 



O Q oul of 10 maths follows exactly 
the same principles of ail the other 
packages, ihe only difference being the 
content. Although consistency is one of 
their strong points, their presentation 
and user-friendliness are even stronger, 
Once again, the series contains huge 
colourful graphics and a nice big menu 
screen which makes Ihe information 
stand out by far. The package contains 
all the topics covered in Ihe latest 
National Curriculum syllabus like proba- 
bility, graphs, observations, interpreta- 
tion, average and all basic statistics. 
There are throe sots of age correlated 
graphics you can alter, so the package 
will appeal to a six-year old as well as a 
16-year old The latter will want more 
emphasis on information and assess- 
ment detoiis rather than fun graphics to 
keep them amused. 

Overall, the package contains all the 
information you need, along with nice 
colourful graphics - and it is very simple 
to use. AHtiough statistics is one ot the 
easier topics, many people will still need 
pointers on how lo display I heir course- 
ware and use correct values and so on. 
If your child is studying maths, this may 
not be an essential purchase but it'll 
certainly come in handy for revision,

I have read many tetters concerning the future of 
the Amiga and comparisons between the different 
computer platforms, it is true that now the price of 
a standard Amiga, when fully-equipped, will buy a 
far superior PC system, but there are other things 
to consider. The PC is an ongoing concern, that 
is. the user has to continually invest money to gel. 
the best out of the machine and its software. 
Then there is the initial investment and the cost of 
the software; you cart buy a. basic Amiga and add 
to it over the years, similarly you Can buy a basic 
PC (a 386 with 4Mb RAM) and discover that 
nothing will work on it. 

The Amiga is also unique in its software pric- 
ing; the closest competitor to Organiser, for 
example, is In Control on the Macintosh which 
costs double the price of Organiser. You can buy 
a new Amiga with Photogenic® for the retail price 
of Photoshop. Word for Windows, as another 
example, stilt costs more than a second-hand 
A 1200 with a copy of Wordworth 2. Wordworth 
and Final Writer may presently lack the advanced 
features of Word and WordPerfect, but how many 
people actually push these Amiga packages to 
their limits - I know I do, but I am doing a degree 


in graphic arts management. This leads onto 
another area of discussion, Many Amiga users 
have complained that they want Word for 
Workbench, but how many people would actually 
buy it? The requirements that this package would 
place on the hardware coupled with the price 
would limit its appeal dramatically. 

Amiga users tend to complain if they have to 
invest in their machine - Sim City 2000, TFX and 
PageStream 3 are just three examples. Because 
of these factors, companies such as Microsoft 
would never be able to compete effectively in the 
Amiga market. The Amiga can be a highly cost- 
effective and productive system for small busi- 
nesses, heme users and graphic applications if it 
receives the correct channels of distribution and 
marketing. At the moment, Eseom seem to have 
bought Commodore's marketing policy along with 
their technology, 

One last point I would like to raise is the future 
of Amiga technology, I have read that the next 
generation of Arnigas will have a RISC processor, 
retarge tabte graphics and no custom chip set 
Does this mean that the Amiga will lose it$ hidden 
power and individuality? Will it also mean thal the 


Amiga will have the power to display 
graphics Without the dreaded, ham fringing 17 

What about software? News on this front 
been non-existent. The nutti- threaded na? j 
Opus 5 puts Workbench to shame and 
serves to display Us weaknesses. 24-b i data 
support, on the other hand, would give A 
applications professional results and the abil 
support every conceivable file formal. Am. 
Safe boasts idiot-proof hard drive security - 
this become the standard? What about Cr 
and CrossMac? 

The news ol the next generation Worxbe 
has been virtually non-existent and this is 
area that will greatly rip peat to the industry 
current Amiga users. I hope that future rovisi 
of Workbench are not going to become few 
tar between, with a high cost. 

Ryan Morse, Milton K 


Let s get this straight. It doesn't matter 
machine you buy* whether it be a P 
PowerMac or even an Amiga, you will sii 
need to spend money on It, Whether 
spend that money when you first buy 



Plain English 
campaign 

This tetter is a plea lo the people who 
make the utilities for your CoverDisks and 
would also apply lo everyone who makes 
any kind of software that does not incorpo- 
rate a good manual, l don’1 expect you or 
a PD operator to supply manuals to all and 
sundry, but why do they make their 
instructions so damn hard to understand. 
Nine times out of ten I have lo print these 
documents out, but even then, 
sitting down with a drink, I stilt cannot 
comprehend them. 

I am not alone in this because I have 
friends who think the same, and I am sure 
there must be hundreds if not thousands 


Bue to the lack of positive information ranting — , 
from Rmiga Technologies, me haue had an au/fui lot — 
of Setters about the future of the Rmiga. Rather — 
than print them all. Hi just sag thanks for ail — 
gour suggestions { perhaps uteil be able to run a — 
‘Future Workbench' feature ) and here's a sample ■ —I 

of your readers who think likewise. In the 
end I get so fed up with loading and 
unloading the software, trying to do this 
and that with it, that ( must have dozens of 
CoverDisks that never get used. If some- 
thing has to go in the C: drawer or if 1 have 
to amend my user-startup, why not just 
say so? Why write tines arid lines of use- 
less text I have to fight through to get to 
the information 1 need. All I want to know is 
how to gel the thing to work., not how the 
structure of the software is put together 
(who the hell gives a damn?). 

If people complain because no-one is 
sending them their shareware fees, ri's 
because most people have become ted up 
trying lo understand how to got the thing 
on their hard drive or floppy and have 
thrown the disk back into the shoe box in 
contempt, 

Ken Walsh, London 

t understand your frustration. 

However, there are some things you 
can do about the problem. The first is 
to be aware that most good PD and 
shareware is written in Europe these 
days. This will mean that English is 


not the author's first language, 
Secondly, because there are nol 
statutes for shareware and most 
shareware authors work on their own,! 
they write documentation, to suit! 
themselves. This is quite often, as you I 
say, not good enough for a wider 
audience. Thirdly, most shareware I 
authors are only too pleased to be 
contacted by a user of their applica- 
tion and you can confront them with 
your problem' that way. E-mail is usu-l 
ally the quickest way, but most! 
authors also include a phone number I 
and address.

machine or do it over a period of years, you 
will still end up spending a fortune on your 
machine if you are at alt serious. 

What you said about Amiga users com- 
plaining if they have to upgrade their machine 
is perfectly correct, and I think it is really sad 
to hear people asking if they can run 
Lightwave on their ABOO, or whether their 
rase A 1205 is powerful enough to run Doom 
under PCTssk. We have to face facts. Unless 
you are willing to spend a wad of cash on 
your Amiga, you won t get anywhere near the 
performance you can get from a £1000 PC, 

There is no easy way out. Escom them- 
selves are in no easy position. Where do they 
position the machine they have bought? Is it a 
games machine. No. if all you want to do is 
pipy games, then a PlayStation can do things 
Hlal the Amiga will in all likelihood never be 
able to do. Is it a productivity machine? Not 
unless your users are willing to get a hard 
drive, monitor, extra memory and preferably 
an accelerator ( bang! there goes your grand). 

The solution lies in a new. slightly more 
expensive, hard drive-only machine. If the 
A1200 had only ever been available as a hard 
drive-based machine, a lot of the problems 
facing serious and games publishers would 


be eased. There would be no question of hav- 
ing to trim down the software to make it fit on 
disks, and users would be much happier run- 
ning from a hard drive. The next step would 
be to ensure that every Amiga came equipped 
with a CPU that had an MMU. This would open 
the way for a system for virtual memory and 
ail that that would entail. With only a few 
minor changes the Amiga could be a powerful 
machine. 

With reference to your last point about a 
new generation of Amigas, you ask whether 
the Amiga will lose all its advantages. To be 
frank, what once was revolutionary is behind 
the times now thanks mainly to the lack of 
R&D carried out by Commodore because they 
were happy to sell ASOOs. Other things are 
happening in the larger world of computing 
that Escom are almost certainly taking notice 
of. One such Is CHRP (Common Hardware 
Reference Platform), a cooperative effort to 
create one single platform conceived by 
Apple and IBM. Perhaps Escom should take 
the Amiga In this direction by porting 
AmigaDOS to the PowerPC processor. After 
all, it will probably be the only RISC chip of 
any power that is made in sufficient numbers 
to become a commodity Item. Amiga 


Technologies would then also have some of 
the weight taken off their shoulders in terms 
of having to design all the hardware that goes 
into an Amiga - third-party peripherals would 
take care of that. 

Almost everybody in the know agrees that 
Workbench is one of the most fluid operating 
systems on any platform, but il is woefully 
specified when compared with the Macintosh 
or Windows offerings. No support for net- 
working, security, memory protection, virtual 
memory, no multimedia support (and no, I 
don’t just mean being able to play anima- 
tions). And software publishers aren't consis- 
tent or open-minded enough either - pro- 
grams that don’t offer screen mode selection 
are particularly old-fashioned - as on-line 
help, localisation and optimisation for particu- 
lar processor types (where necessary) are all 
bugbears. 

As it stands, the future is only average for 
the Amiga. What we need are concrete facts 
from Amiga Technologies before any hopes 
or fears can be confirmed- But Amiga 
Technologies is a small company that 
has only just started up and in my opinion 
we won t hear anything until Easter '96 at the 
earliest. 


■wilhout problem. Bui. when E come lo 
tuch of the Material you give out on 
pur CoverDisks. 

There are problems. 


If the programme i$ Deleted, and 
Reinstalled, then it seems that not all of 
ihe libraries are overwritten, or deleted, 
leading to a consequent failure to 
Reinstall, or more commonly, a failure to 
bad, once installed. 

I no no! know enough about the writmg 
■:-f programmes, but obviously, when 1 
select a programme «con, and select 
Delele Not all of the programme is then 
actually deleted, Some parts remain, 
snd problems occur 


I have just spent two hours attempting to 
irace all of the files to Virus Checker 
VC. 34. Deleting them, one by one So 
Ml I can then install the latest version, 
October 1995 

h ihe end I gave up, and will some day 
i y lo Reinstall the old version! 


to! a good way lo proceed. Badly writ- 
ten programmes tike this- have caused 
me more computer headaches than any- 
thing else. And il i$ not good enough. 

It is a major problem which in the year l 
have been buying your excellent 
Magazine, has not been addressed 
once! * 

l sometimes wonder il you actually load, 
delete, reload, the programmes you 
give. Testing. And I wonder what Crap 
you are left with on your HD. Afterwards. 

One final question which I am sure many 
readers would like the answer to; 

When I run any Interlaced screen, on my 
Commodore Multisync 1950b all I get is 
severe flicker. Split Screens. 


Yet when I run the programme Fractal 
Worlds, AC, Freebie. 

I can choose and run successfully any ol 
Ihe screen modes. Superb igh Res, 
Interlaced. Etc. 

All suggesting that this failure to run 
similarly in Wordworth. Brilliance. 
Workbench, 

Is a WB Software failure. Is this so 
What do you think, 

Andrew Brown 


E think this letter is best read aloud in 
a declamatory tone of voice, so that it 
sounds like the poem it is. As for 
your problems Mr Brown, I can 
assure you that we do indeed check 
Out every piece of software to see a) 
whether we like it or not and b) to 
check that it does work properly. 
Some of the software we put on the 
CoverDisk might be a little buggy, 
after all most of it is shareware writ- 
ten not by a large software company, 
hut probably some guy in his bed- 
room, but all of it works to a satisfac- 
tory extent We have also found that, 
most of the time, there 3s no need to 
remove old versions before installing 
a newer one as a sensible installer 
script will take care of that for you. 

Yours is the first letter we have 
received about Virus Checker T so 
obviously there haven’t been 
too many problems with it. 

The problems you are having 
with your monitor definitely 
sound odd, but we really 
need more details to be able 
to firm up a response (exac- 
tly what screenmodes you 
are using, what other soft- 
ware you have running and so 
on). 


Amiga Computing 


CHRISTMAS 1995 




Having just purchased a second-hand 
Amiga 1209 for the kids to learn on, one 
of the first things I did was to purchase 
a copy of September's Amiga 
Computing for the tools disks, 

l pul in the disks, did as I was told, 
but still no joy. The disks aren't faulty, 
it'$ my fault for being dense when it 
comes lo computers. So \ carried on 
reading the magazine and came across 
the 'Newbie Nightmare 1- letter m ESP. 
Ah, l thought, good letter. I read it, then 
read Ehe reply. Aghf Utter amazement 
arvd disgust in what was written. Your 
reply about wasting space on beginners 
must be in very bad taste. If you think 
about it, not only have you got lo hold 
onto your more experienced and no 
doubt die hard Amiga users, but Ihe 
beginners who will be buying second- 
hand Amigas. If you're mag can't help 
newcomers, then God help the kids and 
me. 

Hope that hurt, 

M Sh&fdon, Leek 

Ouch! OK, I know there are new 
Amiga owners out there every day, 
but even so, we certainly wouldn't 
want to turn the whole magazine into 
a tutorial and lose our more experi- 
enced readers, Owing to the finalisa- 
tion of the new Amiga pack, yes, we 
will be having a beginners section 
back in Amiga Computing , starting 
next month. In the meantime, keep 
persevering with your CoverDisks 
and I'm sure you'll see the light...

This intriguing 20-disk package 
covers a broad range of subjects 
including alleged abductions by 
aliens, crop circles, and mind 
control to name but a few. 

The first three disks contain bub 
lelins from a group called the Bay 
Area Sceptics, dating back to June 
1982, and a newsletter called 
Echoes Of Conspiracy from the mid 
eighties. There are also issues of 
Inside UFO logy and Saucer Smear, 
which contain material of interest to 
those who believe the Earth has for 
a long time been the destination of 
all manner of alien explorers. 

The next nine disks contain the 


fascinating Aliens Confident! 
Multimedia, This is essentially 
multi-disk Amigaguide extravanzd 
text documents, with the occasion 
image thrown in to enliven the pr 
ceedings slightly. Cattle mutilation 
an alleged encounter Apollo ' 
astronauts Neil Armstrong and Bu 
Aldrin had with alien spacecrn 
whilst walking on the moon, and 
sorts of other mysterious incident 
are chronicled here. There are ah 
plenty of accusations ol a conspii

There are also three issues nl 
Out Of Space, an inexplicably AGA- 
□nly disk magazine from NFA h 
which offer still more evidence to 
uppert UFO theories from behind 
an attractive and highly config- 
urable interface. Finally, there" s the 
ihrce-disk UFO: Finding The Truth, 
which consists of yet more text 
documents written by people who 
claim to have conclusive proof of 
ike existence of alien species 
:eyond our comprehension, 

There is a degree of overlapping 
n terms of subject matter covered, 
and some more imaginative preseni- 
lation and greater use of pictures 
night have been a good idea in 
ome cases. However, considering 
this twenty disk package costs a 


pretty reasonable twelve quid, I d 
have to recommend it to anybody 
who's open-minded about the pos- 
sibility that humankind Is not alone

you consider worthy of review. Whether 
it will be freely distributable public

you fee! it's of sufficient qualify to meril 
coverage then slick fI in a jiffy bag or 
padded envelope and send it in with all 
haste. I promise fit at least look at your 
work - even it it's yet another Lottery

make my job a lot easier though it disks 
are clearly labelled Please also include 
a cover letter detailing the disk contents

; formanmg Since the printouts use your 
printers standard in-bmil fonts, these 
formatting commands simply consist of 
bold, italic, underline, sub- and super- 
scripts, and so on. However, since pro- 
ducing lengthy, flashy documents is not 
Test Engine's primary function ihe com 
mands on offer are perfectly adequate 
Actually producing, a document using 
Texl Engine is a breeze thanks to the 
‘ high speed of operation and The general 
j tuser-friendliness of the design It's ideal 
I lor editing ASCII files of one sort or 
another and seems quite stable, 
| unsurprising given its lengthy history as 
a popular shareware text editor. 

This latest version of the program 
includes a fully font-go native Gad Tools 
[ GUI, and the Workbench AppWindow 


simultaneously on the Workbench screen, 

Whilst f don't really know enough 
about the subject malter to be a good 
judge of the program's power it certainly 
appears lo boast a wide range of fea- 
tures. The example files included sug- 
gest that some complex designs can be 
created using this software. 

The attractive WB2 interface makes 
program operation pleasant, and the 
inclusion of keyboard shortcuts is very 
welcome. The whole package looks to 
have had a great deal of time and effort 
lavished upon it. and whilst it might have 


facility is supported allowing files to be 
dropped onto the program window lo 
load them up. 

If Ibere is one criticism I would make, 
it is that whilst cursor movement can be 
achieved using the mouse, pressing 
shift and an arrow key does not move 
the cursor to the end of the current word 
or line - it merely inserts some bizarre 
character. This can be a little frustrating 
when you’re used to other word proces- 
sors, bul it's forgivable in the light of 
Text Engine's many redeeming 
features, 

If you make regular use of the pro- 
gram, you ought to show your apprecia- 
tion by sending Mr Harvey the £S 
shareware fee, That r s a small price to 
pay for such an excellent product. 


There really don’t seem lo be many top- 
quality e-mailing programs knocking 
around on ihe Amiga; most are let down 
by bugs and generally poor design. 
Fortunately ADmail does not seem to 
have fallen into this trap. 

Installation is relatively straightforward

PD and SHAREWARE 



Programmed by: Werther P Irani 
Available from; Ammet 


in the moutcf of Toolmanager and Toolsdaemon, this 
is one of those programs that could revolutionise the 
way in which hard drive owners use the Workbench. 
It creates a scrolling list of programs cm the 
Workbench screen which can be clicked on to load 
them instantly, without having to wade through 
endless drawers. 

It runs as a eommodily. meaning that it is accessi- 
ble at any time from Exchange or using its own 
hotkey combination, Once you've selected a program 
from the list, Lazybench vanishes until the next time 
you call upon its services, leaving the Workbench 
screen uncluttered in case the program you have 
launched requires the screen space. 

Configuration is achieved by simply creating a text 
file containing the path names of the programs you'd 
like to appear in ihe li&tview, with Lazybench then 
displaying just the name of the program file itself. 


If you have any experience of mailing 
packages, although an installation script 
might have been helpful for newcomers. 
However, the accompanying Amigaguide 
document does -explain the installation 
process quite well and with patience Net 
newbies should be able to get things up 
and running relatively smoothly. 

AD mail does not include its own text 
editor, relying instead on programs like 
MEmacs £or even Text Engine, reviewed 
in these very pages). Selecting "Send New 
Mail" or “Reply" within ADmail launches

Alter a decent enough debut issue 
(reviewed in AC86), disk magazine 
Movie-Zone 15 back with basically more 
of the same. The numerous shori and 
snappy articles include reviews of recent 
and classic films, features, and general 
rants about things which the authors feel 
strongly about. There are also now 
plenty gl digitised pictures from some of 
the films covered, most being of a rea- 
sonable quality. I’ll forgive the fact that 
the writers couldn't remember my name 
when discussing the writeups the first

MovieZone to cinema buffs everywhere. 
It’s available from Philip C Swales and 
costs E2.20.

Lazybench features a nice font-adaptive GUI, and 
supports virtual and public screens meaning that you 
can have it pop up practically anywhere you desire. 
It’s only 16472 bytes in size as well, making it a great 
deal more friendly to tow- memory users than some 
applications of this kind. If you don't have Ammet 
access, by the way, don't worry; it won't take PD 
libraries long to appreciate the potential of 
Lazybench, Highly recommended,

the editor, and then once you've finished 
composing a message selecting "Save 
and Exif from the MEmacs hie menu will 
return you to ADma.il flawlessly, 

ADmail's more impressive features 
include the option to create a list of alias- 
es, so, for instance, instead of seeing 
simes ©amdev. demon, co.uk as the 
sender of a message you would see 
Simon Brown. The list of aliases pops up 
whenever you want to send or forward 
mail, although of course you could always 
select "Someone else’ if you don't want to 
communicate with any of these people. 

In summary this is something of an inter- 
net essential, and whilst there are no fea- 
tures disabled in this version, the ten 
pounds the author is requesting as a 
registration fee is definitely worthwhile. /T*¥

A mouse-driven adventure game. Emotional Conflict 
boasts some attractive graphics with a cartoony 
flavour, and some interesting puzzles to solve, not 
ail of them immediately obvious. 

The scene is set with some atmospheric music, 
and the fairly wacky story so far is explained m text 
and pictures at the start of the game. Then it's 
straight into pointy-cficky mode for what turns out to 
be a fairly enjoyable little offering. 

There do appear to be plenty of limitations 
imposed on your actions - for example, conversation 
with your mother is limited to a sort of J, Who are 
you?", “I’m your mother". “Oh" affair, and you can't 
leave your house until you've found a map. 
However, this approach does ensure that you’ve 
afways got a definite target and you won't be wan- 
dering around wondering what on earth is going on. 

Whilst it won't win any awards for design or origi- 
nality, Emotional Conflict is a competent graphic 
adventure ail the more impressive considering it was 
written in that most maligned of programming lan- 
guages, AMOS Basic. A couple of spelling and

Screwed screens 


T Ptease help. I have an A1200 with a Commodore 1925 MultiScan monitor. 
k .. The problem is that whien I use any of the Hi-res no-flicker modes, i.e. 
Mu Hi Scan Productivity, with the Workbench screen and Final Writer, the 
visible screen is offset from the left by 1 to 2 half inches, depending on the setting of 
ine width and horizontal controls, 

Having ihis wasted space all the time is really bugging me. I have tried to follow the 
Instructions in the Workbench and AGA user guides, but to no avail. I have no 
jlem& with the modes I do not want to use, so where am I going wrong? 

B Edge, Sheffield 

t Monitor settings vary slightly from monitor to monitor, and as the 
„ monitor drivers supplied by Commodore are set on a different monitor 
14 from yours, you are going to get variance on both the screen's position 
and sire. 

The only proper and safe way of adjusting the screen's visible size and posi- 
lion is to use the overscan preference program. Unfortunately, it is only until 
Workbench 3.1 that you can actually adjust the global screen position. The 3,1 
overscan preference lets you move the screen around using the cursor keys. 

Now. it's not too cost effective running out and buying OS 3.1 just so you can 
change the screen's positioning. This leaves two options open for you. Firstly, 
ihere have been a number of extra monitor drivers released by people into ihe 
)ublie domain that are set-up for specific monitors. Unfortunately, these are 
formally just for the 1942 monitor, so probably would not help. 

The only other option is to get hold of a program called MonEd. This allows 
you to adjust various aspects of Lhe monitor driver while the screen is being 
displayed - one of the options is the screen's horizontal and vertical position- 
ing, You do. however, have to be careful when using this program, because if 
you adjust some of the values wildly you could damage your monitor. So only 
da smalt value changes if you do use MonEd.

an inch oft the bottom and printed it on a

Also, the pages from Wordwonh 3 do 
not obey the border or ruler settings and 
shift to about a tenth of an inch left margin 
and a wide right margin. The same is true 
of Final Writer, in my Workbench prinler

I have a very annoying problem with my 
^ ^ A40OO. and this only occurs with people 
* who have two high density drives. I have 
two genuine Chinon 3.5 HD disk drives in 
my A4Q00/Q4O. and the problem is as follows; 

If two HD Amiga disks are inserted at the same 
time, one in DFG and the other in DF1 T then only 
one drive will be recognised as a HD disk and the 
other will then be recognised as a standard 380k 
disk, making it unreadable. 

The only way to cure this is to insert the two 
disks separately, wailing for one to be recognised 
before inserting the other. Is this a bug in the OS? 
It is very frustrating for making back-ups and the 


like. Has any made a software or hardware patch 
for this? 

Dirk, Belgium 


a* Thus is something I haven! come across 
before, One possible solution to your 
problem is that il is necessary lo change a 
jumper on your A4000 molher board The one in ques- 
tion is labelled J531 and «s located just in from ol ihr? 
parallel port. 

If il is leh open, wilh no connection , then the second 
floppy drive will be sol for a high densily drive 
However, if it 15 dosed then it is configured for a double 
densily drive. Hopefully Ihis will solve your problem,

along with a description of your Amiga

in your manual that the dip switches 
are set up properly for the standard 
US letter size. 

The problem with word processors 
Is that they use their own margin set- 
tings, and do ignore the Workbench 
settings - which are only worked out 
as characters anyway. Final Writer 
and the like use inches or centime- 
tres to determine the page and paper 
size. 

It is worthwhile taking halt an hour 
out and working precisely what the 
paper size and page size should be 
for each program. You should adjust 
the margin size to your own tastes, 
the easiest way being to use two 
large boxes, one outlining the entire 
page and the other marking where 
the margins should be. You can then 
adjust the paper size to take up as 
much of the paper as possible, and 
also find out the correct margin posi- 
tions. 



Software failure 

I have an A50Q with a 1Mb 
upgrade and have an irritating 
problem Frequently, when I 
am using my Amiga I get an error mes- 
sage, 'Software Failure - Task held fin- 
ish ail activity select cancel to

kfi$@brfze demon- col 

r Unfortunately, there Is no way you can connect more than one flop 
of the internal floppy connector. It is simply a fact that it was aril 
designed to take a single floppy drive, and any extra have to come 
the external connector. 


This is very annoying since I have to 
reset my Amiga, thus losing all my 
work. What does this the message 
mean and is there a way to prevent it? 

O Gosling, Huff 

What you are getting is the 
^ dreaded Guru Meditation, 
* well, that Is what it used to 
be called - now we just have 
the much more boring software fail- 
ure. Normally, this means that some 
program you have been running has 
done something naughty and 
crashed your system. 

Depending on how bad the crash 
was, you will either get the requester 
on the screen - which means that if 
the program you are using has not 
crashed you can normally save off 
your work - or you have a cata- 
strophic crash which takes your 
whole system down and you just get 
the blank screen with a flashing red 
alert message smirking at you. 

The worrying thing is that you say 
you are continually getting the 
Guru message. This usually points 
to a more serious problem than a 


I5 k 


: 


software error, particularly if y 
cannot reproduce the same cm 
situations. By that I mean if soflwat 
has a bug in it that crashes h 
system, you should be able to do 'r- 
same things over and over again iw 
cause the machine to crash, U 
choosing a certain menu selection 
a certain situation. 

If this crashing is occurring at ran- 
dom times, i would suspect you hat 
a more serious problem than just 
software bug or incompatibility. It 
more likely that something has g 
wrong with the hardware In ya 
machine. Normally, the problem 
with memory, because even a sli< 
problem with your memory will cau 
program errors and so crashes. 

Having said that, the Amiga is fairl 
complex on the old chip front, rely I 
heavily on its custom chips lo pi 
form vital operations, so problem! 
with them will also cause pt obtei 
Crashes. The old CIA chips are prii 
suspects hare. If may be the eas 
that you will have to get you 
machine checked out by a prop 
technician. 


'*m I own an A5GG with a 1Mb memory 
J extension, would like to fit a hard drive 
for speed and. was wondering if 
you could help me? I mainly use 
my machine for games, house accounts, 
college assignments, teaching programmes and 
document layout lor school purposes, I am a 
teacher and use my Amiga for weekly and termly 
planning. 

Also, our black and white monitor really needs 
replacing. I hope to get a colour monitor - can 
you recommend any? Finally, could you 
comment on any advantages of these 
TV/ Monitors as opposed to a monitor? Is it a 
case of it only being worthwhile buying a TV 
monitor if you want another TV? 

Andrews, Bromhem 

A good old straightforward upgrade 
^ problem, again. Firstly, with regard 
to buying a hard drive, the only 
options for you nowadays with an A500 is to 



buy one of the external expansion port IDE 
hard drives, which normally cost around 
£200, and Siren seem to be One of the few 
places that actually sell these anymore. 

If you do purchase a hard drive, you really 
should think about getting extra memory 
along with it, because every hard drive parti- 
tion you have will eat a little extra memory, 
and you really should have two partitions - 
one around 15Mb for your Workbench files 
and the other for all your work files. The 
other inevitable thing is that because of the 
speed of a hard drive, you will end up adding 
lots of extra programs to your system, each 
of which will eat up a little more of your 
precious memory. 

E think you should give good consideration 
to upgrading to an A12Q0. Second-hand ones 


with hard drives and extra memory can be 
picked up quite cheaply, and you should 
remember you will have OS 3 which makes 
quite a difference over 2.04, and a huge 
difference over 1.3. 

If you want to get a monitor, the A12G0 will 
also allow you to take full advantage of all its 
high resolution screens, which you would 
not be able to do with an A 500, 

With regards to TV/Monitors, I have been 
using a Philips Cube TV/Monitor for a good 
few years now because I never really needed 
high resolution modes, even though they 
would be nice. The picture quality you get 
through the SCART connection Is very good, 
even though not quite up to monitor quality. 

If you want to get a monitor for use with an 
A5G0, a TV/Monitor is more than enough, and 
you can always sneak a look at the TV when 
you get a bit board* If, however, you do get 
an A12G-0, than the new Amiga Technology 
monitor is as good as any other.

can subscribe to PD Soft's excel loot service arid have

If you really want to get pumping 
bass blasting out of your Amiga, 
then besl not rely on your monitor's 
Speakers. A groovy alternative is 
this sei of aclive speakers by 
Goodman's. With 30 watts of music 
muscle powered from the mains, 
these speakers represent better value 
for money than most of the so-called 
multimedia speakers made by 
computer-oriented companies, The 
only thing to watch out tor is the fact 
that they are not shielded, so don't put 
them too close lo your monitor,

Part of the reason for this is that Studio II is ___

only provider to offer Amiga support, 
which is a must if you've never delved 
into that side of comma before. 

The Internet is actually relatively 
cheap to access, costing only about

REVIEW 



ig Ron Thornton is far and away 
the most famous and prolific 
name in Amiga 3D Thanks to 
(lilalenis combined with the power of 
jghiwjpra, the Amiga has been placed 
well and truly at the forefront of computer 
3tion, s 

Courtesy of Babylon 5 and various 
&r.plorts on the small screen, Ron has 
built a reputation for realism which sets 
jylonian Productions apart from the 
dding crowd in 3D TV and film pro- 
duction, Combine an obvious gift for 
Tgdelling with his unrivalled talent for 
curing and dirtying down models and 
you arrive at the Ron Thornton look, 
which effectively has become a style in 
itself. 

Given Ron's success, the really amaz- 
ing thing is Ron’s willingness to share his 
secrets, but that's what the latest duo of 
v dec’s from Desktop Images are all 
about. Over the two tapes, running 
approximately 90 minutes a piece, Ron 
deftvers all the tips you’re every likely to 
need lo produce the perfect space craft. 
To illustrate the process, Ron takes us 
ugh the complete production run for 
one of his first Lightwave creations, a 
model which originally took him almost 
three months lo put together, [stow, 
(hanks to lots of prac- 
tise, Ron can churn 
wt the same ship in a 
I 'lid under four hours. 

Allhough the two 
lapes are sold as 
separate entities, the 
reality is that they're 
aretty much insepara- 
ble if you really want 
to know what made 
Ills man ihe besl in 
Hie business. The first 
tape, entitled Spacecraft Model Design, 
doesn’t leave much to the imagination, 
with the va$( majority of the instruction 
laking place 3n the Modeller. Il takes you 
Ircim the basic storyboard stage, right 
through to ihe final design complete with 
surface names and all the other essen- 
tials itiat any model needs prior lo mak- 
ng its appearance in Layout. 

In essence, the process is a simple 
one. Basically, you're offered a window 
into years of expertise as Ron reveals not 
just how to do various modelling takes 
but more importantly, why they're being 
done in the first place. 

For the experienced user, many of the 
modelling methods being used will offer 
r 'D teat surprises. However, as with most 
3 r 1 forms, the real skill isn't In the 
Complexity of individual elemenls but 
alhgr (he combination of simple building 
blocks inio a bigger, better and. most 
importantly, believable end result. 

In short, it’s the little wrinkles, hints and 
tips that make both tapes nol only 
inslructional but also insightful. You're sil- 
ling back and picking big Ron's brains as 
he drags, drops, points and clicks his 
way threugh the process, narrating Ihe 
how and why 1 as it happens. The Space 


His master’s 

unite 



Ran has built a 
reputation for realism which sets 
Babylonian Productions apart 
from the madding crowd in 3D III 
and film production 


Bon Ihorntnn reueals all as 
Paul Bustin looks on in awe 

Craft Surfacing tape is perhaps the slight- 
ly stronger gl the two. Although the 
design tape does offer lots of ideas and 
tricks of the trade, it’s Ron's ability to tex- 
ture and dirty down models that has real- 
ly made him Ihe main man in 3D model- 
ling. Unfortunately, there's one aspect of 
tutorial lhat does make it a little unpalat- 
able for hard core 
Amiga fans. Like 
many others, Ron has 
made ihe move to the 
PC in the endless 
search for speed. As a 
consequence, the tex- 
turing tutorial revolves 
around Adobe Pho- 
toshop, a program 
which is widely 
regarded as the besl 
paint program on any 


"“rJ CTST®*"*” 






Ihe function- 
ality differs, there's nothing that 
Ron does via Photoshop which couldn't 
be emulated with a bit of additional effort 
on the Amiga. The basic principle behind 
Ron’s award-winning texturing skills is 
the combination of separate lexture 
maps for the colour specularity and 
defusion. 

By producing variations on a basic 
theme all mapped onto the same axis, 
Ron achieves stunning realism, and it's 
this basic technique which is the key to 
high quality texturing and dirtying down.

CHRISTMAS 1995 













FEATURE 





Future tups 


o the Amiga is back, and in a 
more serious guise than ever 
before. Once sold as the ulti- 
mate gamepfayer's machine, Amiga 
Technologies know it can't compete 
against the super consoles this Christmas, 
so Jonathan Anderson's team are 
gunning for a much more mature market. 

The trouble is it's going to be tough per- 
suading companies to think of the Amiga 
as The ideal multimedia solution after the 
huge advertising campaigns staged on 
behalf of the PC in. its various forms. The 
enthusiasts may know how powerful the 
Amiga is, but you can hardly expect large 
organisations and public services to 
choose rt over systems more common in 
the commercial sector, can you ? 

Well, maybe this story will change your 
mind, because on 23 October 1995, 
Cleveland police force went online with an 
IT network that pushes multimedia tech- 
nology to a new level, And yes, you 
guessed it, the Amiga is behind the whole 
operation. 

FORCED NETWORK 

Every police station in Cleveland has 
now had Amiga-based information kiosks 
installed, all of which are networked 
together and controlled from the force's 
multimedia department. Like Amiga 
employee information systems used by 
other major companies, the System will 
provide a wide range of services to the 
policemen and women who use it. 
Nothing we know of, however, is any- 
where near as far-reaching or advanced 
as the Cleveland project, 

The system allows 
PCs (as in police con- 
stables rather than 
personal computers) 
to access on-line 
training, advice on pro- 
cedure and crime

updates, along with a whole range of 
social and entertainment services. The 
depth of content is astounding, which is 
probably why it took three years ol full 
lime development to complete. 

Each of Ihe information kiosks contains 
an Amiga 4000, alt of which are networked 
together so they can receive regular 
uploads of new intomnation from the multi- 
media centre. Not surprisingly, the soft- 
ware used is Soaia's top -of-t he- range 


aulhonng software. 1C 500. 

Tom Keagan, head of the 
and AV department, explained ihe role 
new network performs. The ethos of 
system is that we've wanted to get 
the barriers of tech nof ear," he said 
believe the last thing an officer 
do., having been on a case, is 
facing with a computer. So we’ve 
this technology on touchscreens so 
can easily access information 


With the Amiga leading the way 
toward a more modern, technological- 
ly friendly police force for fhe 21st 
century, what other developments will 
affect the way they work ? 

“Information technology in general 
is becoming one of the most vital tools 
the police have at their disposal. 4 ' 
Keagan comments, Once again il 
seems Cleveland is leading the way, 
with a new microwave communication

purpose: | 

"We had a large fire on Tyneside 
the beginning of the week at a lar 
petrochemical lactory, The potential 
a major disaster there was huge - ■ 
was a large fire that could havr gay 
a major incident.

tures back to headquarters whi 


Going public 


It s not just the police workforce to benefit from the Amiga’s 
presence in the police stations. Two weeks after the phase one 
launch more touchscreens will be installed in reception areas, 
and each of Ihese will feature new packages tailored for the 
public 

People will be able to go info stations and instead of talking 
to the clerk on the front desk, they can get information from 
the kiosks. There will be information on documents they have 
to produce if they've committed a particular offence* careers 
advice, and public relations material, all of which will make it 
faster and easier (or the public to make general enquiries.

a role to play in this field, however. 
Using the kiosk network, it will be 
possible to take that video footage, 
Mpeg encode it, and send it over 
the Amiga network down to the

FEATURE 


Keagan Is quick to point oul it's not a 
case of 'big brother is watching you' how- 
ever. Because they car evaluate whether 
a service is being used, they can tailor 
packages far users at each individual 
kiosk, and if a package isn’t being used 
they can change it to suit them better.. 
“That's what we've sold the package as/ 
he argues. "It’s not a management tool, 
it’s about giving the workforce what they 
want to see on the system." 

There's no denying that the technology 
will increase the efficiency of the 
Cleveland police force, however. Using 
Mpeg encoded video, they can now dis- 
play intelligence information instanta- 
neously In all the police stations. This 
means they can download colour photos 
of suspects, videos from security cam- 
eras. and other briefing material. 
"Traditionally, intelligence would be pho- 
tocopied and faxed around the force," 
Keagan explains. "You’d be relying on 
black and white photocopies where you 
couldn't point oul details like a scar on a 
suspect's face. Now we can do that in full 
colour." 


WORK-TIME TRAINING 


The system also boasts a huge amount 
of training including sections on every- 
thing from logistical updates io incoming 
legislation, all of which can be accessed 
whenever a PC has ihe time. This, inei- 
denially, avoids the need for the PCs to 
be off duty for training courses so often. 

The advantages of being able to deliver 
training directly into the workplace are 
matched by iheir ability io more closely 
monitor individual PCs' progress. 
Touchscreen quizzes have been 
designed to test users' understanding of 
the training, and their results can be 
uploaded back to HQ so their training can 
be re-evaluated. 

Policy information will be one of the 
most important packages the Amiga 
kiosks are making available, Everything in 
the police torce is done according Io 
standing orders, and procedures must be 
followed In the event of each crime or 
incident. In Cleveland, however, all the 
policy information has been incorporated 
into the system in Ihe form of a fully 


I Scala InFoihanmiri 


Scala 1C 500 is the software that 
makes the Cleveland kiosk scheme 
possible. Better known as Info chan- 
nel, 1C 500 is Scale's multimedia 
authoring system for networks, and 
it's already been used to great effect 
as an employee information system by 
Ford. 

The package includes specially 
designed backgrounds, drawing tools, 
over 200 wipes tor professional transi- 
lions and intuitive image control. It's 
appeal is that despite its power, no 
programming is required to create and 
control Interactive scripts. 


So uilm the Amiga? 



Keating is an electronic technician by trade, and has 
had many yeans experience waiting wilh video, audio, 
multimedia and informal ion technology. Whal made 
him choose the Amiga as the basis for the kiosk 
scheme ? 

'Traditional IT systems rely on a client-server net- 
work, and the more people you have on that network 
the slower It gets/ Keating told Amiga Computing. 

Now all of out kiosks have their own A4GG0 which are 
networked for updating information and keeping it cur- 
rent. So we can have one person or everyone on (he 
kiosks and the speed is not affected." 

The AV team had been using Amigas long before 
the inception of the kiosk scheme, however. An A40OQ 
with an onboard PAR card was being used for video 
briefings and they used Scala for slide-based presen- 
tations. In fact, it was this latter application that con* 
vtnced the team of the Amiga's potential and economy 

"We found that rather than producing 35 mil slides," 
he sad, “we could do a complete Scala package with 


photos and text, etc,, on a simple A1200 which 
ihen be given to a police officer for presentation 
youth dubs and in the community. All they tisd ta 
was connect it up to a telly. From there an things 
kept developing and developing." 

But had he considered other platforms, we 
"Obviously we looked at the whole range, from 
MAGs," Keagan replied. "While everyr>ne was 
different ihings, the Amiga's graphic capabilities 
absolutely phenomenal compared to the cth 
systems/ 

What's most impressed the team, however. 
fact that shey’ve got the whole kit, including all 
A40Q0s, the touch screens, Ihe Mpeg encoder 
control system insiafled at the cost of £150,000. 
may sound like a lot of money, but Keagan insists 
good value. “Compared to the cost of most IT syi 
that's peanuts/ he says. "We think we’ll have reeu 
ated that investment by selling our software in 
lime." 




ImpiESSiue 

ttanii it is at 
this stage, the (Maud 
uperiment could he just the 
beginning, item a: he fine in 
the caiintm uias inuited to the 
launch, and son have already 
Enpicssed interest in setting 
ut a similar tmiga-based 
system 


The Mtiondl crime stoppers campaign 
pubJrcp*od on TV i« ju*t fmothmr *arv<c* 
rJitFi brought anlln* 



indexed electronic book. The benefit of 
this is that if an officer is on duly at 2am 
and needs advice on the procedure tor a 
domestic burglary, he can access 
this information immediately from the 
touchscreens, 

The developers have gone to great 
efforts to ensure it's an Interesting sen/ice 
as well as a useful one, however, and 
most employees who have to make do 
with a boring weekly news sheet can feel 
justifiably jealous. In Cleveland's police 
force, the in-house printed magazine has 
now been put on to the network with elec- 
tronic clips, and there's an electronic bul- 
letin board which announces all types of 
social events. Officers can even gel 
involved by sending in messages or news 
aboul events, all of which can easily be 
put on-line. 

The national crimestoppers campaign 
that you may have seen on TV has also 
been incorporated with ait the teletext 
reports and video bulletins. There are 
even competitions, an on-line telephone 
directory, news on staff discounts, and 
information on training courses available. 

Even when they're not in use, the 
kiosks play a hol-ioop of key news and 
messages, and everything gets updated 
so regularly, it's a full time job tor one of 
the development team's operators. While 


Keegan rightly sings the praise ol 
Amiga and Scala, without which the 
tem could not have been made, fie 
make the point that they've pushed 
hardware and software further than a 
one has taken it before. 'When S 
themselves came to visit they said 
never seen a script that was so 
plate, or seem so much don® 

IC500," he claims. 

"Some of the things like the uploa 
of informatron from the kiosks, e 
cally flagging alt of Ihe pages, things 
that, IC5O0 doesn’t tel you do it. We 
io write software bridges, design all 
artwork, all Ihe content for the pack 
the lot." 

Impressive though it is at I his siage. 
the Cleveland experiment could be ji 
the beginning. Every police force in I 
country was invited to the launch, am 
some have already expressed Interest 
setting up a similar Amiga-based syste 
Because of the years of work it takes in 
develop the software i many of the 
hope to save time and labour by buyi 
the completed product from Tgm 
Keagan's team. 

In fact, it could be that they've enty 
begun to mine the Amiga’s potential in 
this field. There's every chance the 
Amiga kiosk scheme will be adopiec 
nationally by the police, but other large 
organisations could find such a system 
equally useful. "The council and othei 
organisations have already approached 
us - like the fire service, for example 
Keagan enthused. “At the moment I'm 
having Io hold people off until this ones 
gone live/ 

Today Cleveland, tomorrow ihe wortef 
might be exaggerating things to a ridicu- 
lous degree, but there can be no dou:-l 
that the Amiga's credibility as a multime- 
dia workstation will benefit enormously 
Irom its success in Tyneside. Thanks tc 
people like Tom Keagan, maybe some- 
thing will come of Amiga Technologies 
multimedia ambitions after all. m

f you're a power user and you 
think the 6804G is looking a little 
on the slow side these days* 
then you'll have an eye on the 68060 
chip with its mouth-watering 00 mips 
sciential.. On the other hand, there are 
an awful lot of A2O0Qs in use as work' 
noises for everything from presentation 
to video and 3D work, and many of them 
get by on the 68030 or even the original 
68000- 

Upgraders have seldom had the 
choice to take a gradual speed upgrade 
(ram one chip to another because boards 
Af? usually built around a specific type of 
CPU. which can often leave users stuck 
wish what they've got Wtlh the new 
Power Computing A 2 00 G-040/060, the 
opportunity is there to go for the 046' then 
bump up your power to 68060 standards 
ai a later dale. 

Griginally a GVP project and now 
manufactured by TekMagic, this particu- 
lar card is a flexible and sensible design 
which can be configured in a number of 
different ways, CPU choice extends to 
the 33MHz and 40MHz versions of the 
68040 as well as the 50MHz 68060. and 
there are no less than eight SIMM slots 
in two banks of four. 

Why eight slots? Well, as any GVP 
:wner wifi tell you, the American Amiga 
giant's memory modules are non-stan- 
dard in size. To retain compatibility with 
nny existing GVP cards, the A20OQ- 
640/060 has four GVP slots and four 
nduslry-standard 72-pin slots, This 
means I hat if you already have a GVP 
accelerator such as the old 6B030 mod- 
els, you can use your old SIMMs and mix 
them with cheaper and more readily 
available standard modules. 

Mounted in pairs, the SIMMs can be 
configured for anything between 2Mb 
and 128Mb of 3 2- bit RAM, and as the 
pairs are mounted across the two types 
of slots, the pick n‘ mix principle applies. 
Only four of the eight slots can be occu- 
pied at any one time, but this can include 
two 72 -pin SIMMs and two GVP SIMMs, 
pr any other combination - as long as 
the banks aren't split across the two

The mu 


typos, If tho fir si bank of Ihe 72- pin 
slots is used for a 4Mb SIMM, then the 
first bank of Ihe GVP slots cannol be 
used, the GVP SIMM being placed in 
bank 2 instead. 

This sounds a little confusing, but it's a 
simple enough rule to follow and the 
manual, though brief, has plenty of detail 
on configuration and jumper sellings to 
gel you through. Further expansion 
comes m the shape of the built in SCSI-2 
inlerface which has bolh an internal and 
an external pass-through connection. 
Driven directly from the on-card CPU, this 
is a blisteringly fast inlerface with a theo- 
retical maximum of 10Mb per second 
transfer speeds, 

Our test model - due to Ihe manic 
demand for and short supply of 680605 - 
was supplied with a 88040, so we can't 
bring you the board’s Eastest timings. 
Previous Amiga Computing tests of 
50MHz 68060 chips have confirmed the 
new GPU's 90 Mips lop speed, though, 
and the chip will perform fust as fast On 


board as on any 
other. 

With its flexible 
upgrade options 
and SCSI-2 inter- 
face, simple jumper 
settings, and solid design 
pedigree, the latest card 
from Power Computing is one slot- in 
rejuvenation we can recommend to any 
A2OO0 power user, Just wish they'd let 
us keep it... J7W 


Pipelining and 'superscalar' arc two jargon terms 
you'll see being applied lo the 68060 and; olher 
modem chips, but though they cover very complex 
and advanced techniques in microprocessor design, 
iney are simple concepts at heart. Just don't ask a 
chip designer to explain Ihem to you, 

In a traditional CPU. the stream of instructions 
arriving to be processed are taken one at a lime and 
processed completely before the next one is dealt 
with. As this entails many smaller steps within ihe 
CPU itself, each part of Ihe mscroarchitedture sits 
around waiting for the nexl instruction once it has 
done its bit and passed the instruction on. Think of H 
ns a dumb ‘pass tho parcel ' game where only one 


parcel circulates at a time. In a pipelined CPU. there 
can be as many parcels as you have people pass- 
ing Ihem on When an instruction has gone past tho 
first stage in the pipeline Ihe second instruction can 
be started on. which means that the various parts of 
tho CPU are working much more of the lime and 
efficiency increases. 

Superscalar is a term applied to chip architecture 
and goes beyond simple scaling down of the size of 
a circuit. In effect, a superscalar chip makes use of 
parallel processing to give Incoming code two or 
more execution paths so that more than one instruc- 
tion can be processed at a time. When combined 
with pipelining, this approach has been responsible 


for much of llie incredible speed increases we've 
seen since 1930, 

The 68060 has separate paths for data fetch and 
operations, with Tour-stage pipelining on each 
backed up by two fik caches which use the 
advanced (maximum speed with minimum cache 
misses} four-way self associative mol hod. All this 
breaking things down and juggling two or more 
Instructions at once demands that the CPU has a 
great deal of internal intelligence, but the beauty oi 
ihis system is that ihe software doesn't have to 
worry too much about traffic control. As tong as the 
hardware keeps a careful eye on timing and pipeline 
organisation, everything moves along smoolhly.

REVIEW 


layout, 


he battle for Ihe best lexE editor 
has been fought long and hard 
on the Amiga. While there migbl 
be a tew die hard Unix freaks that love 
Memacs, nobody will admit lg liking Ed. But 
Ihe people who have hought a commercial 
lent editor have always fallen into two rival 
camps those that think Turbotext is ihe 
tops, and those poor deluded fools that 
believe that Cygnus Ed rules the roost. 
Well there's a new she oil in town, one 
who’ll put down that dirty CED dog and no 
mistake. 

Some of Turbotext's main advantages 
over CEO have always seemed cosmetic - 
the fact that the menus are standard 
DOS menus, the more logical menu 
the keyboard shortculs - while oth- 
ers, the ARexx support particularly, have 
saaned more obvious advantages. 

But some of Turbotext’s real power lies 
under things like the standard menus, The 
deftnrtk?n for Ihe menus is kept in a simple 
text file which can be edited as you like. 
So you want to add in a monu that Jets you 
select the scripts you most often have to 
, like ihe startup-sequence and user- 
nup? Go ahead, add the text file. You 
want |g change a keyboard shortcut to 
match another program? Go ahead, You 
want Turbotext ig automatically perform a 
on when it starts up? No problem. 

This flexibility also means that if you are 
a die hard CED fan trying to wean yourself 
onto a superior editor, you can always set 
tp the menus to emulate CEO’s oddly laid 
Oji ones (of course it would have to be 
without the silly fonts and the menu that 
has two starting palms on the menu bar). 
Turbotext actually comes supplied with a 
nee range of menu definitions to help you 
|i your task, including; emulators for CED. 
Wordstar and a special layout for users ol 
he Northgate Amiga keyboard (which is 
Equally a PC keyboard especially 
igned for Ami gas, if you know what t 
mean;.. 

These definition tiles don't just include 
Ihe menu definitions., which could, of 
nurse, be in any language, they also con- 
bin other information such a$ dictionaries 
and templates For Turbotext's word correc- 
tion and template completion functions

which are absolutely vital to programmers 
in a hurry, 

Another nice feature of Turbotext's defi- 
nition file is that not everything has to be 
bunched in the same file, You can have 
links inside your definition file that tell il lo 
look elsewhere for further definitions. This 
means that you won't need lo keep editing 
a dictionary file for each definition you set 
up, you can simply link to one main file 
from each of your defined definitions. 

Turbotext’s manual is somelhing of a 
disappointment, Oh, the manual is fine. It’s 
clearly laid out, well-written and logically 
organised. It's also exlramefcy out of date. 
The manual supplied with every copy of 
Turbotext v2 actually applies to Turbotext 
vl ,0, This isn't a complete balls up howev- 
er, as Turbotext 2 now comes with a corn- 


manual which, is as up to date as possible. 

And because of the fact that Turbotext 2 
is only really improved and net actually rad* 
really changed, you could stilt read the 
manual provided on the train and make 
sense of it. I do think, however, that for the 
money you are paying for Turbotext, you 
ought to gel an up-to-dale, printed manual, 

EW 


The final iuard 




ol t!is

like the standard ifienui Ihe

The only problem with Turbotaxi, gr 
indeed CED. is getting people Id pay for 
its superb features. I think there is a per- 
ception in the Amiga community that pay- 
ing money for such an everyday tool is a 
bit odd (file managers seem to tail in Ihe 
same category). Nobody has a problem 
with paying oul fifty quid for a word 
processor, but no-one seems to want to 
lash out the same kind of cash fora high- 
powered texi editor. Turbotext's added 
speed and increased compatibility with 
WB2 and 3 mean lhat it is the besl choice 
for a modern text editor. Buy it.

rflsE CnRrEcIiDn - uiMal FOR? 


( 

..rbotext includes a superb feature tor typists who accidentally leave the caps 
utk key on, fur programmers working in a language which is case dependant, 
nd For people who regularly spell the word the leh. What it does is compare 
ach word with a list of words in its definition file (suitable definitions are set up 

£ 

ar ARexx, C, Modula 2, COBOL, BASIC and Assembler) and change its case or 
polling if necessary. 

The beauty of this is that a huge dictionary of words that are never going to 
M used when you are programming doesn't have to be loaded. If you have 
■■<> r d s which you regularly misspell (for me It’s always chnago instead of 
hange), then this feature is a godsend and much faster than having to 
spellcheck the document, 

Turbotext also offers a more manual method of dealing with character trans- 
position and case correction in the two macros assigned, by default, to the F3 
and F4 keys. Hitting F3 toggles the case of the letter under the cursor, and hit- 
ling F4 swaps the letter under the cursor with the preceding one. Much faster 
ihan having to backspace and retype.

REVIEW 


I 


ppointments, time schedules,, 
reminders of tasks to be done - 
these are things most of us 
don't want to think about as Christmas 
nears,, but nevertheless that's what On 
the Ball is all about. Still, instead of the 
standard stocking filler of the 1996 diary, 
it's worth considering buying Hi-5oft's 
new organiser tor your best loved 
AmigaptiHe, 

Like Digital Organiser, On the Bail 15 
a calendar, address book, to do list, 
appointment reminder and notepad all in 
one. Unlike the Digits rival, however, it 
bears no visual resemblance to a physi- 
cal tilcfax, so you can forget all about a 
glossy GUI, 

On the Ball does, on the other hand, 
have a competitive range or features, and 
the interface has some advantages 
despite its lack ot glamour. The program 
is all accessed from a tiny calendar win- 
dow you can constantly have in the cor- 
ner of Workbench, making it convenient 
iq access in the middle of working on 
another task. 

Clicking on a date opens the multi- 
application window from which all the dif- 
ferent sections of the organiser are 
accessed. It's at this point that the pro- 
gram can seem most unattractive thanks 
lo the rather old fashioned appearance of 
the interface. However, moving between 
(he sections or backwards and lorwards 
ihrough dates is very simple, although it’s 
net so instinctive a process as is is in 
Organiser. 

The Appointment utility is one of the 
most useful features in the program. As 
you'd expect, it allows you to plan your 
week out, but the at-a- glance schedule 
gives users a visual breakdown of their 
•appolnimenis that is more detailed and 
nelplul than Organiser's approach - even 
if it is less pretty. 

TIMESAVERS 

There are timesaving features such as 
the option to automatically repeat regular 
appointment entries, and the reminder 
function works better than on other pack- 
ages, With On the Ball, messages will 
appear on Workbench accompanied by 
sound samples to jog your memory, and 
you can set the time of reminders very 
precisely. There is also a snooze option 
so the reminder will come up again, and 
you can set it to launch programs 
automatically at a particular lime. 

The to do list includes its own text edi- 
tor for cut and paste jobs, and again, 
reminders can be attached to each item. 
The address book features a convenient 
Rolodex layout and has mail merge plus 
search and sort capabilities that will 
make it a handy area of the overall pack- 
age. Finally, there's the notepad where 
you can jot down other forms of informa- 
tion, though in appearance this is On the 
Bali's most scrappy element. 

Customisation is possible using the 
labels or Tags', thus allowing you to cre- 
ate new categories like birthdays or busi- 
ness and identify it with a unique colour 



iunutt«ht*d ui an ni^-gunco vi0w inere are a to i 01 preference option* 

Ball control 



or symbol. This might not be as 
fancy as Organiser's supple- 
ments, but it's probably more 
useful 10 your average user. 

To be honest, using the 
interface can be confusing 
until you get used to it 
There are lots of fiddly 
buttons an odd places, 
making what should be 
simple tasks more 
complicated, and 
though the manual 
makes sense of it 
all It still seems 
unnecessarily 
awkward. 

Another moan 
arises from the 
fact that it's not 
fully font sen$iitive. 

A final point to note is that there's not 


flo not another football - 
management game, - 
but rather a commercial — 
organiser to take on — 
Digita's Organiser. — 
theaper it mag be, but is — 
it ang good ?— 
Gareth lofthouse found out -

REVIEW 


ll|— 


E 


very one knows that file man- 
agers and databases are indis- 
pensibie components in the 
Amiga's software set-up, but they're not 
-he sort ol things to stir ihe blood. Most ol 
us would rather spend serious money on 
creative packages, so it's not surprising if 
we refuse to pay the asking prices for 
sc-me ol Ihe Amiga's more mundane com- 
rnerael utilities. 

Fortunately, we may now have access 
ic d decent file manager and a database 
=1 ihe surprisingly low price of £30. 
Optonica's Info Nexus 2/Data Nexus 
package is undoubtedly cheap, but the 
Question remains; does il have the power 
lo da the job? To start with Info Nexus, a 
major challenge for the designers has 
been to persuade Amiga owners lo aban- 
jon the long-time acknowledged leading 
file manager, Direclory Opus. Version 5 


they warn which will remain highlighted 
for mistake-free batch processing. The 
interface incorporates "pop and roll' 
menus that will come up anywhere in the 
screen on pressing the right mouse but- 
ton - a feature that works reasonably 
well once you're used to iL Another new 
addition, however, is a feature called 
Dynamic Typing, 

This new option displays each tile with 
an icon, giving users an instant idea of 
what their contents are. Thus, picture 
Mies are indicated by an artists palette, 
info files with a question mark, and 
sound files with a waveform, making 
searching and sorting more of an instinc- 
tive exercise, 

Like Opus, users can configure Nexus 
so that il will perform preset actions 
when a particular file type is double- 
clicked on. a feature that makes using 



A dull interface, but miity ot tn wffl 
wvfcQins it* siruphcity and spaed 

the program seem easier and more nat- 
ural. Add lo that powerful networking 
support ir> the form of Envoy, and a 
point-and-click help function, and Info 
Nexus begins to look like a decent little 
performer. /J»y 


Power management 


Directory Opus 5 ms so different it 
mas hardly recognisable as a file 
manager, but the big changes didn't 
suit eueryone. flow Uareth tofthouse 
reports on Info Oenus 8, a program 
with more of a traditional appeal 




of that powerful program, with its multiple 
iv«r>dows and quirky innovations, was not 
lo everybody's liking, however, and 
Optomca seem set to capitalise on this. 

In contrast to Opus, Nexus 2 has the 
same du 11- looking interface as its prede- 
cessor and is divided into the traditional 
teft/dght windows we've come lo expect 
Irom the standard file manager. It looks 
more basic, and indeed is more basic, 
lhan its rival - but to be honest it's also a 
great deal easier lo use, a fact that will no 
dgubt prove to b© a key selling- point. 

It's also only fair to say if has all the 
essential facilities you'd expect, plus 
some powerful new additions that make it 
attractive regardless of the bargain price 
it seems f tor example, to have faster 
directory access times than its rivals, and 
it will play soundfites, display pictures and 
launch programs with a double-click of 
the mouse. 

New for this version is the Image 
Browser function, a facility that will search 
out all Ihe picture files in any given direc- 
tory and automatically display them as 
thumbnail sized previews. Users can then 
click on any of ihe thumbnails to gel a full 
size viewing, and they can select files 

Freebase 


Desphe the fact It's been thrown into the pack for free, the file manager's database 
companion, Data Nexus, is another surprisingly powerful program, Using Ihe same 
kind of bland but usable interface, if can handle all the usual types of fields indudi 
□number, time, text and data. More advanced calculations can be performed allow- 
ing, for example, serial numbers to be automatically generated for club memberships 
pr summary fields for totals. Data can be imported and exported and there's the same 
type of networking support as found in the file manager. Searching power isn't bad 
either, thanks to a tool thal allows users to add things like search criteria with a click 
of the mouse. 



Final count 

The price on this package is remarkably 
low considering the features each of Ihe 
programs offers. Ironically, this could prej- 
udice people against the quality of ihe 
software, despite the fact it's really quite 
impressive. True, Info Nexus is hardly 
good looking and it Jacks the power or 
configurability of Directory Opus. Similarly 
□ala Nexus can't quite malch up to data- 
bases like Twist 2. 

It you're looking for a reasonable 
amount of worthwhile features in pack- 
ages that will do the job perfect !y ade- 
quately, you'll be hand pushed to beat this 
winning team from Qptonica.

should speed up OS 
operations such as 
Window redraws and 
gadget operations. I can 
never tell (he difference 
between the two, and 
it also means you 
lose 1/2Mb, so I have 
never bothered with such 
functions. 

When if comes to 
actually choosing what 
type of expansion memo- 
ry you want, you really 
should get at least £Mb 
when you purchase any 
accelerator. Otherwise, 
any speed advantage is 
all but lost due to 
programs being run out 
of Ihe much slower chip 
RAM. 

Firstly, any size of 
SIMM; is catered for, from 
1 Mb all the way up to 
1£8Mb - when they 
become available and if 
you could actually afford 
one! Nothing unusual 
there, but the Blizzard 
also supports the use of 
FC 36- bil SIMMs. Now, 
normal computers only 
need 32-bit SIMMs — 
these are ihe ones nor- 
mally used on Amiga 
accelerators - but the 
PC needs extra bits for 
parity checking its 
memory. Hence the extra 
4-bits. 

The advantage of 36-bit SIMMs is that 
they are normally a tittle cheaper due to 
the higher demand tor them, so you might 
want to use one ot these instead of the 
usual 32-foif SIMMs, Now don’t go thinking 
you will end up with any extra memory as 
the Blizzard just ignores these exlra bits. 

One final memory-related feature the 
Blizzard has depends on the speed of 
memory SIMM you are using. The mini- 
mum SIMM speed the Blizzard can fake 
■s 70ns, due (o the high clock rate of the 
processor. If, however, you gel hold of a 
60ns SIMM you will be able to gel up to a 
further 10 per cent speed increase by 
fitting a jumper on Ihe board. 

Finally if, for whatever reason, you need 
1o disable the accelerator, I think compati- 
bility with Some tiresome programs would 
be top of the list. You can get ihe comp- 
uter to ignore the entire expansion boards, 
including ihe processor, memory and 
SCSI interface by simply holding down the 


yet another 
accelerator joins 
the fraif in the R1E0B 
speed battle. Beil Ulohr 
chechs out the wind speed 

kin 4 i 


2 key when you boot your computer - this 
is potentially very useful. 

The Blizzard is a good 030 accelerator, 
and with the recent price drop is very com- 
petitively priced- You should remember, 
however, that though the plain board may 
seem initially cheap, if you end up buying 
a 4Mb SIMM, Co-processor and SCSI-2 
module, this adds a fairly hefty E300 plus 
to the initial price of the board. fcjf

O he never-ending quest for 
speed. Whatever computer you 
have, no matter how fast it is, 
you are always gong to end up drumming 
I your fingers on ihe desk staring al a 
slowly growing percentage bar, or tire- 
I sumely spinning watch pointer. What is 
he answer 1 ? Buy an accelerator 
Now. no-one is saying an accelerator 
I is going to banish all that waiting about, 
even Captain Picard has to wait a short 
while tor the Enterprise computer to 
reply, but it sure does help. 

This latest incarnation of the Blizzard 
sports a full SOMhz 030 including the 
MMU - no messing around Ihere. If you 
do your sums, this will make your tired 
old A1200 up to seven times as fast - 
just under half the speed ot an A4000. 
Having the MMU is also a bet of a boon 
gs it allows you to use virtual memory, or 
Enforcer if you are a programmer. 

When you first see the Blizzard it looks 
like someone has cut a big chunk out of 
tbe side, due to an edge connector which 
is used to fit a SCSI 2 interface. I have not 
Ttad the chance to test this yet. but would 
assume the end result would be a new 
SCSI connector out of ihe back of your 
computer similar to the DataFlyer and 
Falcon. This extra space does make the 
Blizzard easy to fit because you have 
plenty of finger room to angle rt into place, 
The Blizzard does have a number of 
extras built into the board that are a little 
unusual The first is a MAP ROM function. 
It you have extra memory installed, by 
placing a jumper on the board the 
Amiga’s Kickstart ROM will be automati- 
cally copied into this extra FagtRAM. This 
allows altof Kiekstarl's operations to be 
executed from RAM which is usually 
faster than when run out of ROM. This 


Speedophita 


'or all you speed junkies out there, 
!his Blizzard might not be fast enough 
lor you. As 50Mhz is as fast as 030s 
go, there is currently only one other 
option available in the form of 
Power's Falcon 040/060. which comes 
with ihe SCSI 3 interface as standard. 

If is also worth considering that if 
you do add a Co-processor and the 
SCSI 2 option, the total price is only 
v7Q short of the base Falcon, which is 
i.vicc a& fast. 

There is an 060 Blizzard on the horF

news 


By Andy Mad dock 


Dungeon 

doom 

Before you even think it, this 
game is not Doom of any 
description. It's merely a 
Dungeon Master clone by 
Block Legend colled Evils 
Doom. Basically, it will be 
Dungeon Master with better 
graphics and more depth. It'll 
run at Hi-Res- allowing spec- 
tacular ray^traced enemies, 
objects, screens and anima- 
tions. Also, there'll be many 
different scenarios to battle 
through accompanied by on 
atmospheric novel. Evils 
Doom is due out quite soon 
and could offer something 
new to the market - along- 
side all the tiresome Doom 
clones. 


Lost in the Amiga debacle 


n imbo of the Lost is finally making its debut on the 
Amiga, and it's absolutely packed to the rafters tool 
It will either come on o standard CD for the CD32 or 
15-20 floppy disks depending on your own set-up. 

Thankfully, the disks are hard disk installable. 

The CD will boast real-time speech and atmospheric effects 
along with special cinematic sequences enhancing the original 
gome graphics, 

Umbo of the Lost Is a point and click adventure in which you'll 
meet o series of people and places. It's oil to do with the famous 
mystery ship, the Mary Celeste, Obviously the game is half fic- 
tion, although all the dates,, names and map co-ordinates are 
completely true. 

From what I have seen of the Welcome levels, the animation 

and the sound effects in 
particular are looking 

and sounding superb There is a range of sampled dialogue I 
which accompanies the game and it adds that little bit extra Ini 
terms of playability. 

Unfortunately. Tri-Logik Studios, the developers, ore still looking I 
for □ publisher after Rasputin's unexpected departure from the 
Amiga world, However, when fhe actual quality of Umbo of the 
Lost is revealed, I can't see Tri-Logik having any problems 
finding □ publisher.. 

The presentation In Limbo is superb, it should 
set you on the rood for a fourney of a lifetime 




This is the second level from Limbo 
of the Lost, and although you can't 
hear them, Tri- Log tk hove added 
some excellent sound effects 


Virtually gone already! 


No sooner had Virtual Karting made an appear- 
ance on the Amiga, than author Fablo Bizzetti 
and fellow publishers OTM are already penning In 
some details for their future release - Stat fighter. 

It's an epic shoot- em-up which will take 
advantage of fhe At 200 s chipset by using a true 
3D perspective, not to mention asteroids, space 
stations and planets. There are two game modes 
to follow, The arcade option allows you to play 
single mission and travel freely around the 
game, and the other es an adventure whereby 
the action takes place as if in a storyboard - 
following a plot. 

It will recognise a joypad, digital and ana- 
logue Joysticks, and also any accelerator boards 
or FastRAM This will be another game published 
by OTM, which exploits the Amiga's hardware to 
the maximum. Finally although it wilt come on 
five disks, they will all be installable, keeping the 
disk access down to a bare minimum, 

Star fighter is set far release at the start of 
January '96, with a CD32 version to follow The 
developer, Fablo Bizetti, has turned down offers 
to program far the PC and the Playstation 
because he believes the Amiga is the best 
machine - with commitment like that, Starflghter 
can't possibly go wrong. 


Sign on, here 


OTM have signed two new development teams, 
who are currently working on two brand new 
games. 

Weather mine Software are the first team and 
their game is called XP8. It's a vertical scrolling 2D 
shoot- 'ern-up with 256 colours and runs at 60 
frames per second - taking advantage of all the 
Amiga's infernal and external hardware, 

The other product is called QP-Tennis and Is 
currently being worked an by an Italron develop- 
ment team. Not only does it contain an arcade 
mode for up to four players, but also a full career 
out ion for up to 32! All the major competitions 1 
are involved, namely the ATP tour and Davis II 
Cup. There's also a Crazy Tournament where you II 
can ploy against seven of the world's best play- 1 
ers and execute some Impossible shots, and also 
ploy on some ludicrous surfaces. 1 

GP-Tennis will include 300 frames of animation I 
for each player, 1 28 colours for each television- 
style view, different referees, linesmen, boll-boys 
speech, and the players will even argue with the , 
decisions. If it plays as good qs it sounds, tennis 
fans will be in far a real treat next Spring. 

XP8 will be released early next year with QP- 
Tennls following suit later, We'll keep you | 
informed of their progress, 











3 enguins was planned to be released by 
Alternative Software, although, the programmer, 
Scott Hayne has decided to go soto and publish 
it himself. Apparently, he'd rather keep the 
copyright for the game so he can add bits to it 
and release data disks as he wishes. 

The idea behind the game is fairly Lemmings- 
esque, You must guide two small Penguins to the 
sxlt which is booled somewhere on the level - 
as well as collecting some eggs against the 
dock. 

You take control of a Wolf who can drop 
bombs, flick switches and open doors. Although 


P-P-P-Pick one up 


You control the Wolf, and the Idee is to 
fuide those Penguins to sofnewtiare safe 


Platform games have completely disappeared 
during the last few jri on (7is„ hope fully well see 
a resurrection - beginning with Penguins 

It may sound like it's a simple game that just 
requires on ounce of logic, the Penguins both 
have special attributes that can only be used in 
certain situations. Therefore, the Penguins are 
assigned tasks to complete, and with 60 levels, 
you con bet there are some in there that look 
damn near impossibie. 

The first Penguin can collect all the keys for 
the opening of doors, while the second is used to 
dispose of beasties. Therefore, forward planning 
and on extreme sense of problem solving is 
required. 

We'll be able to see how Penguins is shaping 
up when we give ft a full review next month. 


Extra time 

Player Manager 2 has 
already become one of the 
successful games since its 
release. It's rated very highly 
In the charts and adding to 
their success, Anco are 
releasing the first in a long line 
of data disks. 

Player Manager 2 Extra - 
Chase for Glory is basically 
an enhanced version for the 
A12QG. There ore now real 
players and teams, not to 
mention new graphics, sound 
effects and many more 
thrilling features. It should be 
coming your way very soon, 
look out for it.

management simulator. After the success of 
Sim City and Theme Park, the world was crying 
out for a new 'sim’ game, and now your 
prayers have been answered. 

Yes, you have to fake control of what you put 
on your pier, whether It's stalls, shops, attrac- 
tions, parks or even shows. You piay a vital part 
in being the seaside's manager, responsible 
for booking gigs at the local theatre to attract 
the crowds, and generally making the money 
and pleasing the visitors What could be sim- 
pler than organising o few Donkey rides? 

The characters themselves are programmed 
to be as intelligent as possible so they will act 
■accordingly to what you do and how you do 
Consequently , you certainly won't get away with cheap, sugary ice-cream and worm soft 
drinks far £1.50 a throw - like in reai life, 

The graphics are looking excellent, especially with a vast array of sprites and animations of 
the British public trying to get to grips with the attractions.

r/ie cartoon Style of the graphics works The ‘Pinnacle* offers an unusual way of 

welt with the tone of Jfi* game mowing between the different locations 



e first reported on this gome way 
back In December 1994. many 
months ago. It looked great and we 
all looked forward to rt coming in. We 
waited and waited And we waited. 


Finally though, we have the final version and it 
was worth the wait In fact it's a miracle you're 
actually getting this review this month because 
I've only just been dragged away from the 
game out of fear of the wrath of our sub-editor 
getting irate for not having any copy in this 
month. This does actually benefit you because 
we're nearly at the end of the game and if all 
goes to plan you should be getting the cheat 
mode very soon - well, thats our excuse, 

So as you've probably gleaned already, this 
is □ highly addictive game that's likely to keep 
you glued to the monitor until you finish it. it's an 
adventure game that follows the exploits of Joe 
King, He r s a pilot with a mission to take the 
glamorous film star, Faye Russell off to an exotic 
location for a film shoot 

Disaster strikes even before take off and Faye 
Is whisked away by one of Joe's rivals. Joe even- 
tually rescues her and they continue their jinxed 
journey. A storm brews, lightening strikes, and 
the crew end up stranded In the Amazonian jun- 
gle. They then stumble across an evil plot Involv- 
ing a kidnapped princess, a mad scientist, and 
la den hose n. Well. It gets more involved than this 
but I won't spoil it for you because the game 
has a great way of revealing the plot as you go 
along. 

There are many more good points and whot 
Is particularly successful is how well the puzzles 
run together, This is probably why I've not left my 
computer for so long because unlike some 



The glamorous film star looses

Comparison 


Cruise for a Corpse 

Dolphins r s point W click adventure is anott 
title among the top Contenders. Reminiscent of. 
an Agatha Christie-style plot, you played tt 
character of Inspector Dussentier, trying to fir 
the murderer on a cruise ship. Some of the di 
however, were a little strange and FOAQ wo t 
far better with more logical puzzles. 

The Secret of Monkey Island 

As mentioned countless times before. Monkey 
Island surpasses all other games in this genre. 
Due to the style of humour and the exceltef 
puzzles, it became a classic. FOAQ is near 
there - It certainly plays as well However. It jus 
doesn't have guile that many gags as Ml. 

You could also compare this title to Indiar 
Jones because of the film-style plot. But 
you'd expect, graphics have come on lea; 
ond bounds since then and FOAQ certainly? 
looks the part. 


adventures, you're never left stuck in one plaa 
- you con go around, collect other clues ant 
then come back, which ail works exceptional 
well. Another aspect which makes you keep of 
playing is the fact you don't die for stupid rei 
sons. For instance, if you're in a situation whei 
a fight breaks out. some games leave you for 
dead and onto the restart level Here thougl 
each part just leads on to the next and if yen 
get a kicking then It's only to form the next clue, 


Dialogue is usually relevant and adds 
la the theme of the movie-style plot

The clues are very logical too, without 
orrsing overly simple, so they still remain 
challenging. For example, you have to find 
me milk to get a magic potion from the Witch 
tor. You have a coconut and a knife, ef 
valid - coconut milk. Firstly though, you will need 
to actually get the coconut from a monkey by 
swopping a banana with hirn, It's all a matter of 
eprvg your eyes peeled and using the logical 
of your brain Another safety catch against 
oing wrong is that it won't let you give away 
your carefully collected possessions to the 
ong people at the wrong time. The only prob- 
lem this might have is that hardened adventur- 
ers might find it a little on the easy side. Saying 
■hat though, it does get particularly taxing 
towards the end. 

The presentation is also top notch, with a 
;user-friendly Icon system and well set out 
screens. Graphics keep to a cartoon style with 
some nice animations, and they all manage to 
•conjure the atmosphere of the plot brilliantly, 
The character can wander freely between 
foreground and background ond It works well In 



When you are in engaged in conversation you 
must choose cue a f the multiple choice answers 


providing realism. Another innovative touch is 
the way in which you can use the pinnacle to 
move to each location. Tnis gives you a bird's 
eye view of your surroundings and you can then 
click on the place you want to go to next. The 
music, though, can start to grate, although it 
does change according to location. Sound 
effects are a little sparse but they ore at least 
relevant. 

Each of the game's many characters has 
been imaginatively created, Joe is the stereo- 
typical cocky hero and Faye, the haughty 
actress, which Is perfect for the 194Q's adven- 
ture theme, This provides for some entertaining 
dialogue, 

Speech aims for witty repartee and despite 
some obvious double entendres, it works well, 
However, whether it would suit the younger 
player, I couldn't say.

Kartin 


fter □ promising preview two or three 
months ago. Virtual Karting is now 
ready to fill up the rather blank look- 

ing Amiga shelves In games retailer's 

stores 
everywhere. 

Fabio Btzetti, the 
author of Virtual 
Karting, has some 
very strong views 
an the Amiga and 
issues that surround 
It, Icon quite read- 
ily agree with a 
number of the 
points he makes 

□bout the much debated issue of piracy, 
among other topics. What he does 
mention Is that as certain people abuse the 
Amiga Industry, such as pirates, he himself 
would much rather develop and produce 
games that only he and his friends could enjoy 
personally. 

When you think about it, he's actually mak- 
ing a reasonable and perfectly valid point, Why 
should developers produce games for pirates 
to abuse and ruin? But anyway, OTM, the pub- 
lishers, have managed to squeeze Virtual 
Karting into the market for the Christmas 
crowds., and with Leading Lap just finished it 
looks like it's going to be a festive fight, 

In the preview, as said before, Virtual Karting 
looked very promising, I've been trying to think 
back to the early days, attempting to recollect 
another karting game, but I'm afraid I keep 
failing miserably. As this is the only one in Its 
particular genre, any karting fans out there will 
only be too happy to receive this cleverly 
wrapped present nestled snugly under the 
Christmas tree. The idea Is to take on a series of

Go karting 


Karting is becoming more and more popular 
across the globe. Only recently I have noticed 
the world championships broadcast on satel- 
lite television. It" s looks quite ridiculous 
because there are all these countries fighting 
it out just as seriously as in Formula One 
Having said that though, karting is becoming 
even more popular than FI. Most people will 
never live to race around Silverslon© In a 
Williams Honda, but you can quite readily 
race around a karting track somewhere in the 
world for a nominal fee. 

If You've never fried it, l suggest you find 
the nearest track and get racing. It's one of 
the most action packed and exhilarating 
sport ever - in my opinion. 


each race, you are shown a fly-by view of the 
entire track. Here you con plan out which cor- 
ners are the best for overtaking, and check out 
any 

chicanes that may prove a problem. Also, iden- 
tifying the pits is a must because stopping to 
rejuvenate your kart is essential If you want to 
be In with a chance of winning. 

One of the finest touches included In VK is 
that when you press down on the accelerator 
you see your foot actually act - it's the same 
with the broking too Instead of just a still pic- 
ture of a kart on a moving track, these touch- 
es actually moke that small difference in the 
realism. There are two karts to choose from. 
The lOOcc is the less powerful of the two, 
although because of this the actual handling 
is far better The I25cc kart is by far the faster 
of the two, so use of the brakes in all of the 
tracks Is a necessity, 


Paris, The Eiffel Tower is clearly lurking around in 
the background detail. From this you can see 
I what great lengths the developers have gone 
: to to oroduce the detail, Before you begin 



SPEED AND PLAYABILITY 

There are two main angles from which you 
con view the action. The first is 3D which looks 
as if you are actually sitting in the kart. The 2D 
view is from above, much like a bird's eye view, 
and although it is far easier to handle the karts 
in 2D, It s difficult to see which corners are com- 
ing next, 

If you would like to know what kind of 
technical specifications have been made to 
accommodate the speed of detail of VK, on an 
accelerated machine.. Virtual karting runs at 50 
frames per second which, to be honest, is quite 
spectacular. If you're running It on a standard 
1200. It Is slightly less impressive - running at a 
steady speed of 25 frames per second 

Fa bio Bizelti pointed out that speed and 
playability was his main concentration during the 
development and although this seems like a fair 
point I can t help feeling that Amiga games- 
players will be wanting more In terms of graphics. 


Final word 


Overall, this product moves very swiftly, plays 
extremely well and certainly doesn't lock 
presentation. The only grip© is the manner in 
which it moves. Although technically it sounds 
far more superior to that of other racing 
games, the graphics become so annoyingly 
irritating, a headache is the only inevitable 
outcome, especially after a good half hour- 
staring into the screen 





^ One of the 
finest touches 

included in VK 
is that when 
you press . 
down on the 
accelerator 
you see your 
foot actually 
act - it's the 
same with the 
braking too j

includes all

the 24 textured 
tracks, and wait 
for it - three 
soccer 
pitches! j 


Street 




By Andy Maddock 


van- 


his particular racing game 
was released on the 5NES 
about a year ago and with 
the Meg ad rive version 
recently following suit, it was 
highly likely that an Amiga version would 
follow. Street Racer on the Amiga is set to 
be released just in time for some festive tun 
courtesy of UBI Soft. 

Vivid Image, the developers, are previously 
known for their past products, namely First and 
Second Samurai both of which have proved to 
be very successful during the last year or two. 

On the console formats. Street Racer gained 
respectable scores in most magazines, It featured 
fully textured tracks and a whole host of charac- 
ters to choose from. If is said that Street Racer will 
push the A1 200 to its absolute limit by including all 


VS 






the characters, the 24 textured tracks, and w 
for it - the three soccer pitches! 

Yes, that's right, not only is Street Racer a 
dard racing game like Gremlin’s Lotus trilogy, 
you can actually play football as well as baft 
the hell out of each other in the Rumble Arena, 
There will be eight characters in all - Sumo 
Hodja, Raphael, Surf, Biff, Helmut. Frank a 
Suzulu. Not only do all these differ from eoch 
by coming from different sides of the globe, th 
also boost many different abilities and s 
attributes, 

There's the split screen option to r 
head-to-head if you're particular 
popular, or the standard one-pla^ 
championship trophies if your soci 
ising abilities aren’t what th 
should be, 

If you can cast your minds 
to when you used to be at school, 
you remember pfayrng football in t 
playground? I’m sure at some point y 
hove taken part In what we called, l One- 
Wembley,’ Well, Street Racer gives the op 
unity to take part in this world-beating Invei 
a game. 

For those of you who are completely b 
will explain, There were no teams you see, Tl 
was one goal and the idea was to pr 
through each round by sticking the ball in the net. 
The last person to score is out! I can remember tl 
gome really well because I was always in the 
(boast, boost) and we’d often miss !e 
because of it. I’m telling you this because Sti 
Racer includes this game, only here it’s Twoh 
Wembley' where two players play os a team 


You can see tram these Meg arrive 
screenshots that street Racer is a 
very professionally designed preduet 


The spfil screen option should 
hopefully he as fast as the single 
virts ion in Ifre finished product 


We've only actually seen the Megadrwj 
version, hence the screenshots. However, if rhe 
Amiga version can match the graphics and 
playability of the Megadrive version, UBI Sort 
will be on to a sure winner. 

Street Racer will hopefully be in the shops by 
Christmas, and as a present it will certdWj 
inject more excitement than slippers,

hints & tips 




Ckrtilni l||$

Cup of tee? 




©lore you begin any hole, always hold 
down the fire button to see the over- 
head map view, This is probably the best 
way of guiding your ball through the hazards, 
What you must not do Is just look for the hole 
and aim for It - unless it's a par 3, 

What you must do is look at the yardage for 
the entire hole. If it J s say, 324 yards. That means 
It's 324 yards to the pin If you are using a 1 
wood then the ball will travel 240 yards only it 
you hit it at full power without any wind assis- 
tance. Now you can work out., using the over- 
head screen, where roughly 200 yards would 
be- You can then select a particular position to 
place it Obviously if you want to know where 
the bafl will end up, it wilt probably finish around 
Just under half-way between the tee and the 
pin. 

This might not be much us©, but if you want 
to know where roughly the ball finishes, helping 
you avoid bunkers and frees then this is 
undoubtedly the best method- 



Bent clubbers 

his is probably the most invariable tip thoj 
will undoubtedly solve many of your 
lems. Before teeing off, the most i 
font thing is to check the yardage, but this 
rarely correct. The yardage that appears ie 
posed to be how far it is from the tee to the 
without any actual wind assistance, This cert 
isn't the case, ft would probably be correct if 
were using a cannonball and a tank, but pure 
not, so If you understood the sarcasm you 

need a ne 
club, It will pro 
bly be just a 
accurate if v ! 
use one 
above tne orffl 
compute 
selects. This mast 
be altered to 
or even three 
you are stuck 
the rough. 



It’s a fairway to the top 



fter your first four or five 
holes, if you're ploying 
a tournament, keep 
switching to and from the 
leaderboard to get an Idea of 
the positions of all the other 
competitors, If you are lead- 
ing, the best idea is to take 
things slowly and concentrate 
an each shot. If you have aspi- 
rations of hole-in-ones, you 
won't get very far. Even if play- 
ing safe Involves playing the 
ball In a different direction to 
where Ihe pin is situated, it will 


almost certainly help you in 
the long run. 

If you are on the edge of 
your seat and you really don't 
want to mess up. especially if 
you are in a position Ilk© rn a 
bunker or behind a tree - you 
will have the tiniest slice of red 
to press fire in, If this is the case, 
just reduce your club until it 
goes wider, until you know you 
can definitely react quick 
enough, You will lose out in 
yardage because it won't ga 
as far, but it will give you an 


edge by setting you up per- 
fectly for your next shot - this Is 
a far more effective strategy 
than hitting and hoping, 

If you happen to have hod 
a bad game on the first few 
hales, the best escape route is 
to see who Is ahead of you 
and see what score he's on, 
that way you will know what 
particular target you are aim- 
ing for and how many shots 
you can get away with ■ with- 
out dropping below the rest cf 
the pack.

HOLE T m I 


uuhfmt 
P«R 2 











Sensible G&ti can always be relied upon to bring 
you the most simple and realistic holes ever 


This should he no more than a simple putt - it you 
just move the pointer a little to the rfghl 












Sliced bread 


n f you are attempting a hole that is either 
surrounded by trees, bunkers or other 
water hazards then these must be nego- 
tiated most carefully. For instance, if there's a 
huge fairway with a bunker an each side, atm 
your shot straight down the middle, don’t try 
any fancy hooks or slices to gain better angles 
unless you are perfectly sure you won’t end up 
In the sand or water 

The best idea is always to play it simple - 
don't take any risks whatsoever, the chances 
are they probably won’t came off. 


Aim for that flag thing 

There aren't really any hard and fast rules about 
putting in Sensible Golf, but many people find the 
directional arrows on the green extremely deceiv- 
ing. Don't look at the arrows as If the are repre- 
senting uphill on d downhill. The arrows mean the 
ball will travel in that particular direction. 

One of the most awkward putts are the ones 
which have arrows pointing in one direction and 
then are reversed in the apposite direction - like a 
zig zag. All you can do here is Just hit the ball 
straight and reasonably slowly, this way the arrows 
will have an equal effect on the bail 



Having trouble with your swing? Not to sure 
where to putt it? Going round in circles? Then 
let Andy Maddock iron out the problems 


p ere we have a typical par 3. It is 219 yards to the pin, and the 
computer selects a 2 wood,, which at full power will reach 220, 
This sounds quite reasonable, again however, always knack the 
club up one, in this case, to a one wood. 

Although you have knocked the distance up to 20 yards, still 
make sure you are aiming for full power. With luck, it will drop just 
past the hole. If you can get the direction correct, a hole-in-one 
will almost certainly be yours. 

Tins is a latrly easy hole. 

Although it says par 4* you c an 
probably make the green in 2 










Note the arrows on the green, you must allow tor 
the extra direction if you manage to lilt the flag 


Vou must be careful not to clip the top ol the trees 
when you attempt to get the halt cm to the green 


Practice makes 
money 


hat's about all the 
possible advice I 
can give, although, 
if you're still having trouble 
then I suggest you select 
’Practice Holes" and try 
and Improve your timing, 
reactions and accuracy, 
Hopefully your confidence 
will grow and you' It be able 
to take on the cream of 
the crop.., good luck.

feature 



intersect Development look to 
break into the limelight with 
their first game 



s some of the bigger developers 
move over to other platforms, smaller 
companies start to come to the sur- 
face. This is no bad thing, It gives rise 
to undiscovered talent and new teams take 
up the challenge to keep the Amiga games 
market alive. This has a positive effect on the 
industry as fresh plans and innovative ideas 
come to the surface. With this in mind, we 
believe that these companies should get the 
coverage they deserve and each month we 
find out how they attempt to lead the revival 
for the Amrga, 

This month we talk to Intersect 
Development, the team behind new AG A 
shooter; Atrophy. 


Trevor Mensah and Frank Tout are the partnership 
behind the as yet unheard of company. Intersect 
Development. Started back in 1992, the two 
created the label to develop new games for the 
Amiga with the mission to program the ultimate in 
Amiga gome engines, something that would be 
technically superior to anything else that had 
gone before it, Mensah explains, "Our ethos is 
firstly to produce the best Amiga games and sec^ 
andly to encourage and recruit talented Amiga 
enthusiasts into the business. We feel using new 
talent in this way will inject much needed life 
blood into the trade and help to revitalise the 
market with fresh ideas," 

So what's all the fuss about? Why are a team 
that have been around for three years now seek- 
ing a spot in the limelight? Well, It has something 
to do with their forthcoming game a ground 
breaking shoot- 'em-up that promises to push the 
Amiga to its limits and make proper use of the 
AGA chipset. Mensah claims that the Amiga is 
the only computer capable of their gome. 


The story so far... 



The game makes full use 
o t the AGA chipset 

Atrophy. "It simply could not be done on a PCI 
Ho, not even a lQQMhz Pentium! In fact if votk 
own an AGA machine your looking at hardware I 
that the top of the range PC owners would set! 
their right arm to have. We ore using 35 and ?0| 
nanosecond full-screen hardware scroll™ 
which for the mentally sane among us equate* 
to quarter and half a pixel scrolling which is ultra] 
smooth." He continues. "We feel both the Mac] 
and PC have restrictive fixed address screefJ 
hardware architecture. They cannot scroll •he] 
screen without it shearing and generally looking] 
like a dogs dinner,' 

But the fact remains, the Amiga games 
market is suffering a decline and the bigger corns 
ponies are running in the opposite direction 
towards the sure fire money makers, so why do 

• We want the Amiga to 
survive and we hope we 
can help rebuild it back t( 
its former glory days with 
some good solid games «| 


Atrophy is only a few weeks 
away from review, but in the 
meantime here's the gomes 
storyline, Involving a mad psy- 
chotic, "Saxon Priest', medical 
experimentation and doctors it 
has all the ingredients for a 
rather nasty Hammer Horror 


style plot. The doctors enter the 
patients mind and attempt to 
control his madness, Intersect 
describe It as 'pretty surreal' 
and Incorporate the theme of 
fear Into each level, for exam- 
ple, fear of underwater and 
even fear of fear itself. Mensah 


explains. "There's an accumu- 
lation of a I! his fears which 
makes Saxon Priest what he Is, 
there is after ail a very finite line 
between sanity and insanity. 
That was how the plot devel- 
oped and the game was 
designed with the plot in mind." 


Atrophy revolves around Mi# 
plot of a doctor trying to 
control a psychotic by 
entering his mind 






There hasn't been an arcade shoot- 'em- up tor 
a while attd this certainty look s tike infecting 
some fresh ideas into the genre 



the end 


humble beginnings 


Trev'.s story: His original Interest In Amigo 
games came from when he used to chat and 
visit friends, such as programmer Jules Burt 
and graphics artist Jon Law at DMS * they 
released such games as Trained Assassin, 
Shockwave. Drlvin' -Force and Colditz. "Our 
friends In the industry suggested we should 
stop coding for fun and get down to writing 
some decent Amiga games. W© did Just that 
and are u$ng all the knowledge and tricks 
discovered in our time spent coding on the 
Amiga scene and on the old 8-bit micros." 
Frank's story: He started programming games 
on the CM and once wrote a game for 
Destiny Software but before he was paid any 
royalties the company went bankrupt! He 
wasn’t very happy to say the least - but this 
didn't stop him learning to cade games on 
the Amiga, 

Intersect still have so much faith in the Amiga 
market? Mertsah is keen to point out, "Yes, 
the Amiga market is in a transitory period and 
currently at the weakest level It has ever been, ,„ 
but we feel that the direction the Amiga will take 
now will be that of smaller more independent 
developers such as ourselves. Once companies 
like us firmly establish ourselves, the Amiga will 
once again see high quality commercial games 
Rowing at a healthy level." 

They are undeterred by the prominence of 
other platforms and cite the price of the PC as a 
reason "The PC still looks pale to the Amiga In its 
price to performance ratios. You're looking at 
£1 ,499 to get you a decent specification Pentium 
PC. Even then It still cannot adequately handle 
arcade games and many of the things Amiga's 



unnel 

Following on 
from last month's 
interview with 


have been breezing through for years." They feel 
that even the super consoles don't pose a threat, 
“Sure, the Sega Saturn and PlayStation do look 
impressive graphically but they are not reai 
computers, Perhaps things would hove been 
different if the PlayStation had been upgradable 
to a ’real 1 machine - then things may have 
looked a little different.’ 

However, it's piracy they see as the real threat 
and believe that this has played a large part in 
the machine's downfall, They believe that con- 
sidering the si 2 © of the userbase, the Amiga 
games sales should be a lot healthier. Mensah 
again, "The Amiga no longer has a fat cat' 
status so the argument that one little copy won't 
hurt is shallow. Every copy re oily does make a real 
difference, If you play a game you should buy it * 
So far the company are quite impressed by 
what E scorn have achieved with the Amiga. They 
point to the fact that Arnigas are going to be 
back in the shops before Christmas as one rea- 
son, "People have been giving E scorn a bit of an 
unrealistic time scale for things to happen," "Sure,

Intersect describe 
the process of 
making {Ire gam* 
as great fun 




Smooth scrolling realty 
makes this game 

> 

they are selling A4000's at an unusually high price 
but for the market it's aimed at multimedia and 
broadcasting, this ts quit© normal/ 

When we get on to the subject of the actual 
game Mensah describes it with all the fervour of 
a double glazing salesman, eager to point out 
all the benefits over its rivals, 'Due to our techni- 
cally superior AGA specific game engine we are 
able to offer much improved smoother scrolling, 
silky 50 frames per second movements of both 
screen display and bobs, faster gameplay pace, 
higher resolution graphics and inevitably from ail 
this better gamepiay r He goes on to explain 
that the game engine was originally formulated 
using MC68000 assembly and standard OCS pro- 
gramming techniques for use on A500/A600 
games. "When the AGA chipset was released 
we began to move the game engine towards 
the faster MC68020 and AGA architecture 
capabilities,’ He complains, ’Many A 1200 
games fail to deliver because the code has not 
been significantly updated since its original 
inception on the A SCO's. Usually the cheap trick 
of a few nice AGA copperbais and 256 colour 
static pictures. Occasionally the extra odd bit- 
plane of colour is added, but the games bob 
movement and scrolling generally looks no 
better for the AGA treatment," 

If comes as no surprise to learn that Guildhall 
Leisure will be publishing the game - they have 
shown themselves to be firm supporters of the 
Amiga over the past few months with a great 
number of releases including no less than two 
Doom-type games and Super Skidmarks. All titles 
that were well received by the Amiga press and 
public alike. As Mensah points out. "Guildhall 
have a sensible down to earth approach to 
publishing so we chose to use them. Their 


Impressive end of fevef guardians 
fill the screen inviting attack 


Hopes for the Amiga 


Intersect hope to see Escom get the Amiga 
back on its feet and hove many a word ot 
advice for them. They believe that if Escom 
decide to push the Amigo away from Its roots 
of well rounded design end custom chc 
accessible hardware. It could prove fold, 
They also have ideas for their dream Amiga 
"An idealistic Amiga from our point of view 
would be one with some more hardware 
sprites, perhaps □ nice DSP/ 16 bit. 24 channel 
sound along with Hardware rotation/ vector 
polygon chip and upgraded 32-bit blitter. Ths 
would completely transform the Amigg to 
dizzy heights way beyond the PlayStation or 
Saturn toys of this world - and it would be a 
real computer too! All this without even mut- 
tering the word “RISC'." 


business strategy is formed from past experience 
and Judging by their publishing successes of the 
past, its been well founded. Their Managing 
Director, Giles Hun- tec has obviously seen 
gaps in the market forming and is eagerly awa 
ing the chances to plug them with good soli 
releases,’ 

Intersect are already very pleased with th 
new game and describe the process as being 
fun, "In the end we are quite different to oth 
developers who don't enjoy what they ore 
doing. We love programming... and because of 
this we are not just going to slap together gomes 
of low qualify for quick easy money," * We want 
the Amiga to survive and we hope we con 
rebuild if back to its former glory games with 
some good solid games."

Bizzetti s tovc p f go-karting ted 
to this 3D driving game 


• A great 
future for the 
Amiga 
philosophy is 
still possible - 
Commodore 
had engineers 
that were 
ingenious in 
their job • 


□ 


ow did you come up with the idea for 
Virtual Karting? 

I am extremely passionate about karts 
so it was a must to do an extremely 
realistic and playable karting game, 


Wow fang has it taken to develop Virtual 
Karting? 

Well, more than a year, but i also made my HLA 
programming language which is like on expert 
system. Because of this and my knowledge from 
Virtual Karting, the next one should take less 
time, the next one even less, and so on - every 
time with considerably improved quality My 
next project, StarFighter, is a massive jump 
ahead from Virtual Karting already. 

How did you first start programming on the 
Amiga? 

tike every hobbyist I think, I bought an obsolete 
Vic2Q when I was 13-years old and learnt the 
Assembly language. A year 
later I bought my Amiga 500 ,* 
and continued my hobby { 
from there. This would have j 
been impossible if I had 
bought a console and I 
believe it would have been 
inconceivable to learn 
Assembly programming on j 
a PC, I would have needed j 
thousands of books just to / 
learn about every sound 
board that comes out.

gets his views on the Amig< 
the market and his game. 


publishers. I think the Amiga games market 
still promising. If you want to make a hob tv ondf 
a good job at the same time, it can be yc 
future. 


j'?s FcstC W/amn9evieri& ^ 

OTAf 


What do you hope to do 
next? 

Simply to use my know- 
how in programming to j 
make the Amiga great, 

It's not a hope, it r s defi- 
nitely possible. My next ! 
project is StarFighter. a ' 
game with features I 
haven't seen on the 
PC or consoles yet - £ 
and It's only for the 
Amiga. StarFighter is still a game idea for 
an un ex ponded A 1200 and I will continue to 
respect the hardware standards of the Amiga, 
but an upgrade of fhe machine would be a 
very wise move, I believe fhe only thing the 
Amiga lacks to compete with Pentiums Is some 
FastRAM and a faster CPU, The Amiga architec- 
ture has no rivals - it needs less resources to do 
a better job. 

Irtfhaf advice would you give to people trying to 
break into the industry? 

If they are hobbyist programmers, the advice I 
can give them is to aim at the best qualify 
possible and then approach some reliable 


Do you think Amiga Jechnalogtes will lead 

tn fk — — revivai for Amiga? 

Wings , "" ---J I really hope so but 

the moment I am a 
ileus about giving 
reply. Surely they wi 
need to upgrade 
future machines; In 
next era of PowerPC a 
puters. the Amiga 
get a respectable market 
only If ft is a high perfor-. 
mance computer at a low) 
price. It would be □ 
idea to sell only 
Operating System of tt 
Amiga to PowerPC users. 
Amiga philosophy could sf 
J have a great future 
Commodore had engine® 
that were Ingenious in th 
I job, Its all in the hands 
i 1 E scam - if they give the 
and the money to invest in 
next generation of RISC Amlgc 
(I hope using an evolution 
Hombre project, but very 
J expandable), then we con 
begin to smite 



Do you think enough has been done to 
piracy in the industry? 

Nothing will ever change the mind of the crock* 
ers. In Poland the price for programs and: 
games are really unfair The best crackers are 
Polish people, so you can imagine they fed 
‘justified' for their actions, and i won't orgudj 
about this, But the same cracked programs 
come over to the rest of Europe, where many ; 
people that could easily buy the originals prefer 
to buy the pirated one.

Alien Breed is full of excefient explosions which 
add realism to the ^rne immensely 


corridors leifh beasts at the end* That's 
what it ait tends ip boil down to, unfortunpietY 



his happens to be the only first-person 
perspective game I've heard so much 
about but never seen any real con- 
crete evidence to confirm what the 
final version would be like. In the light 
of other magazines reviewing unfinished versions, 
we waited absolute ages for the final version to 
appear so that you. the readers, would 
know exactly what you were putting 
your hard-earned cash towards. 

After the prequels, namely Alien 
Breed. Alien Breed '92 ond Alien 
Breed... something, it was quite a 
shock to hear that the one of the 
most popular overhead shoot- 
'em -ups was going to be relegat- 
ed to the division of the Doom 
clones. However: after looking ot 
Team 1 7's past successes, it would 
be naive of me to knock it after they 
have been so consistent with their 
extremely healthy contributions to the Amiga 
world, 

To be honest. I've yet to see a Doom clone with 
a plot. Well, a decent one at least. What the pro- 
grammers do is spend all their man hours tweaking 
graphics and gameplay and about a week before 
the game is due to be released, the whole team of 
developers spend 1 5 minutes thinking up a suitable 
plot, You can put money an the fact they r II all 


The only downside 


If I have to point out a major flaw in all these 
games, then if has to be the system require- 
ments. Although you can quite happily ploy any 
Doom game on a standard A 1200. don't 
expect it to run at a realistic rate. If you really do 
insist on playing Doom on the Amiga, there is no 
doubt that you need an accelerator. Without 
one, Its frustration factor increases tenfold, 
especially as you will find It difficult to control. 
These games can only be played properly on 
an expanded Amiga, trust me. 



come up with "Right, you're stuck in a big dura; 
and this evil man is coming after you. Okay, 
now? That's it. You've to get out - blasting v qi# 
way through hoards of ugly monsters!' 

What really gets me is the fact that If you 
to get out. why did you go in there in the fidj 
place? Doh! Why don't developers make a gar 
which is called The Reaims of Darkness - f 
not going in. I'm frightened. 1 

I apologise. I had to get that off my] 
chest - I'm only just getting over af 
lethal overdose of Doom games. 

The first thing I noticed as 
began walking around is 
screen - it's smaller than Gt 
and Fears, although bigger rhar 
Citadel, it does look more 
Doom than any other efforts ond 
the speed could be matched then'] 
would be unstoppable. 

The main thing that really affects the 
game Immensely is the specification of yc 
Amiga. If you've got an accelerator then ft 
games are absolutely brilliant. If you haven't.

games are slaw ana uncontrollable and can 
often cause more frustration than you can 
humanly imagine. 

One good thing about Alien Breed is that there 
is a plot.. And although it only really makes 
on appearance in the manual It still gives an 
atmospheric introduction into the gam© itself. 

All the features that were included in Fears and 
Gloom have been incorporated into Alien Breed 
3D - the sound effects, textured floors, gouraud 
shading, and other game features such as 
weapons, beasts and health bonuses. What 
makes the second games lack variety, though, 



This screen may confuse most of you, 
although actuall iV s just a close- up* 


Reviewed by Andy Maddock 

□re the really badly drawn, almost cartoon-like 
beasts which really do let the game down enor- 
mously. Although this is the same sort of problem 
Fears suffered from, they didn't look quite as unre- 
alistic as in AB3D. 

The mazes are huge with plenty of rooms to 
explore. On your way through you can collect 
keys- open doors, gather mod -packs to replenish 
your energy, and ammo to top up your current 
weapon, 

The major problem with Fears was the fact it 
was too easy and you could continue quite 
easily get to level five or six without losing a life. 
Alien Breed will frustrate you enough to make you 
lose a life on the first level never mind five or six. 

As for the war of the Doomers, top of your list 
should be Fears because of its wonderful look and 
control, closely followed by Alien Breed -3D 
because it's aosolutefy brilliant to play. In third 
place Is Gloom - a goad solid shooVem-up, 
although missing the depth and challenge Fears 
□nd AB3D feature. 

Alien Breed 3D is, and always will be, one of the 
finest Doom clones on the Amiga, Most people, 
including me said it couldn't be done - I have just 
been proven wrong..., twice 






^ Alien Breed 
3D is, and 
always will be, 
one of the 

finest Doom 
clones on the 

Amiga ^ 



As it turns out my prediction 
was correcl. Although Alien 
Breed 3D isn't quite as 
action packed as the first 
series was. especially where 
lasfobility is concerned, it 
still adds up to be an 
extremely worthy purchase. 
This is one game that you 
would never be forgiven for 
missing.

which includes Pinball Fantasies, The 
Chaos Engine, Nick Faldo's Golf and

am in", oc canin', whichever. 
Here we n, r e Again with useful 
Urdu and tip* for getting hie 
most from your workbench. 
Seeing that we are being joined by readers 
new to the Amiga, having just bought one 
df the new Magic Packs. I thought we 
might well took m some hints for first- 
timers. 

Let's begin with the anatomy of a disk. 
Disks basically come in two varieties, 
floppy or hard. White floppy disks these 
days might not seem so floppy, they are 
ifius named because the recording 
material itself is a disc of magnetic material, 
which it quite floppy, encased jn hard 
plastic 

A hard drive consists of similar, but 
definitely suffer disks, stacked one above 
ihe other with reading heads between, a 
brtlike a stack of record turntables. These 
nre all then encased in metal to prevent 
nny shifting of the disks, known as platters 
The reason for this is that each platter is 
only separated from its neighbour by a 
matter of millimetres, and the reading 
head is only microns above each platter 
So much for the physical aspects of the 
cM. what nbout the mechanics as regards 
computers? 

FORUtfltlED 

Well now you re talking All disks, 
whether floppy or hard, have to be 
formatted. This is like |l hope I'm not being 
too patronising here| teaching the disk 
how to speak Amiga-esc for should that be 
Arnigan?]. The formatting operation sets 
L, p the 8(} tracks on an Amiga floppy 
Inumbered 0 to 79) in about a minute and 
a half, although if you have already used 
the disk as an Amiga floppy and merely 
want to dear all the information off it, you 
can do a quick format which onty takes 
about ten seconds. 

The reason lor this js that all a quick 
format does is tell ihe disk it ts empty, it 
doesn't reformat ail the tracks, so whatever 
information is on the disk is still on there 
lyoujust need special software to see it}, 
it's j ust that it can be overwritten with new 
information Of course, if you have had 
ead/write errors on a floppy, you 
shouldn 't simply quick format it as this will 
not usually resolve the problem A hard 
drive is a bit different and can take a lot 
.‘onger to format, although a quick format 
will still take about Che same time as a 
iloppy disk. 

If you could only afford to buy a floppy- 
based A1 200. them I would save your 
pennies for a hard drive as soon as 
:x>5iible. II you have struggled with 
swapping Workbench Floppy disks 
continuously' |i hope you are using back-up 
copies of your Workbench diskslj, then 
! booting from a hard drive will be like 
going from crawling on your belly to being 
able to fly. the reasons for this are nnr onry 
ihe increased capacity of a hard drive, but 
ateo a massive Increase m the speed at 
■which the data can be read A floppy disk 
will give you about 20k per second -

compare that to about I Mb a second for a 
stow hard drive, a speed increase of 
50009;:. and you'll see why hard drives are 
a necessity on other platforms. 

Sue Jet's go back for a mo'. Earlier on I 
said that you need to format a disk before 
it is usable, but what of the attendant 
options in the format requester? Let's 
cover them one by one. The first option is 
what td call the disk. This defaults to 
Empty , but can be changed fo anything 
you like. Try not to put spates nto the disk 
name if you can help it as this will only 
cause you problems later. 

Onto the next option - the trashcan 
the trashcan js a bit of a holdover from 
Workbench 1,3 anti was stolen from fhe 
Mac. in my humble opinion the trashcan 
is hardly ever used by anyone and takes 
up space on your floppy. The way it works 
is that instead of files being deleted 
directly from the drive, you move them 
nto the trashcan. Then, if you are really 


sure you want to get rid of them, you can 
simply use the Empty Trash menu item 
from the icons menu - a two-step process 
only really useful for the really indecisive. 

Well now, we seem to have run out of 
Spate for this month, so next month we ll 


go onto those other options in the format 
window and cover them. In the 
meantime, if you really feel the need to 
format a disk, don t use the trashcan, do 
turn on FF5 and FFS international, and 
don t put spaces in your disk names 


What's in a name? 

Naming a disk Is a thorny topic for Amiga users because of the problems 
inherent jn using a name with spates in it. You could capitalise the initial 
letter of each word you use; ThistsMyDiik', which is perfectly readable and 
transparent to AmigaDOS, or you could use the underscore character; 
this Ji_als®_ mydlsk, which is also Time, hut l think looks a bit niminy- 
piminy. 

So that's the name sorted out. If you're wondering why having a space in 
your disk |or directory, or fife) name can cause problems, the reason is that 
the shell doesn't understand spaces. If you were to type CD this is my disk:' 
the shell would pop up a requester saying Please Insert volume this' in any 
drive.' If you really want to use spaces then it means you have to type CD 
"this is my disk;"' instead. Much more hassle, I think you'll agree.

Paul Austin continues his eas *\ guide 


to funhii lookin' fillin' things 


continuity as the individual elements become 
exactly that, individuals, all doing therr own 
thing rather than being an integral part of 
the overall production. 

The solution is to employ object dissolve 
cm the wayward elements, the result being $ 
transition which stiN retains continuity, 
transition speed, and the overall fluidity of 
the anim, while defrvermg the essential black 
screen end frame essential few looping 


the hard graft in the rest of the scene gets 
overlooked. 

One of the simplest rules rs to make 
copous use of sprtne paths to add ease-in 
easeout to motion paths. This helps to make 
a simple linear motion into .3 much more 


natural and stylish transition. The cardinal sin 
of logo design is to let elements simply slam 
into position Obviously, a little additional 
effort is required, especially within scenes 
that contain a tot of objects, but believe me 
it's time welf spent. 

Another trick employed to great effect in 
our example was the addition of object 
dissolves when required. During the outre 
section the camera angte meant that certain 
objects had much further to travel m order to 
clear the frame 1 he simplest solution would 
be to just move them further away. 
Unfortunately, this results in a Jack of

delivering the final chapter in 
he Amiga 3D guide to flying 
logos, Last month left off with the basic 
camera and object motion already in place. 
This time we'l! be looki ng at fine tuning the 
motion paths plus the odd tip cm object 
design. 

When it comes to motion paths, attention 
to detail is all important. Even though the 
object in question may merely be gliding 
along & straight fine, there’s soil plenty of 
scope for some much needed styling If you 
neglec t the wary an object moves, all the 
effort invested rn modelling and surfacing 
can be wasted. Perception erf movement is 
something which we humans ace particularly 
sensrtive to. In short, if something looks even 
the tinniest brt peculiar or unprofessional it 
will be spotted and roomed -in on, while all 


Modelling options 


One of the keys to any successful animation is variety nt 
movement Simply flying one or two objects on screen 
simply doesn't cut the mustard when it comes to 
effective corporate productions The key is variety and 
to achieve it you need to start implementing your rdeas 
right from the off in our example, copious use of layers 
was essential to achieve proper scale and placement, 
while retaining the Independence for the individual 
elements that eventually bring the animation to Irfe. 

The first step is to define the basic design of the 
logo, a process which is often done for you by the 
actual subject matter - in thrs case the IDG logo. 
Having said that, the logo itself may not always have 
enough impact in itself to really make for an exciting 
image The basic IDG masthead falls into this category, 
therefore the bevel bars were added to breath a little 
extra into the design 

The actual logo was originally imported via Pixel Pro 
If from an ESP file, extruded and then segmented into 
the individual objects required for the animation. The 

L 


assorted bits were rut and pasted nto new layers and 
then saved under separate file names. 

Remember: it's important to keep renaming the 
surfaces in order to get the appropriate texture and 
surfacing in Layout. Once the IDG logo and emblem 
were in place, the word Media was added, scaled and 
placed in a separate layer. 

Next the bevel bars were added using the logo n a 
background layer to define the appropriate scale and 
placement. The bars themselves, consisting of a simple 
box, was mirrored according !y. The front faces were 
then selected and the bevel option applied Again it's 
important to remember to re-select these faces and cut 
and paste them back into position otherwise 
smoothing m will round them off in layout. 

fn most productions involving text, bevels are almost 
a prerequisite for adding that final touch of class to a 
production, Although simple toots of the trade, their 
addition often adds that touch of class which elevates 
the whole production. Aside from giving the text a 


more sculptured look, bevels actually generate 
highlights and can therefore provide some much 
needed sparkle to the production. 

fronically enough, bevelling hasn't been applied to 
the text in our example, the reason being that the anfm 
was designed to run as a 160 x |j?0 Quicktrme/AVi 
movie within a computer-based marketingyad sales 
presentation. In such a small resolution, finite detail 
would probably have detracted from the overall took, 
appearing as a rather odd pixelated artefact or error 
rather than a specular highlight/design point 

Assuming your design is complete and the various 
elements are already neatly stacked in the various 
layers, simpfy saving them out m situ would mean 
perfect positioning when the complete logo appears in 
Payout. 

The final task rs the manual re- positioning of pivot 
points for the objects that require complex motion 
paths. Basically, that's all you'll need for perfectly 
respectable funky flyin' things. Have fun

Assembler Pa 


Q n some machine, runnable 
programs are always loaded 
from the same starting 
□cation In memory. On the 
Amiga, as you'll probably know, the 
situation is different and programs can be 
loaded into any area of free memory that is 
available at the time. Because the 
AmigaPOS scatter loader takes care ot the 
job of modifying any absolute addresses 
used within a program, the Amiga coder is 
therefore able to write position-dependent 
code, i.e code containing absolute address 
references, knowing that AmigaDOS wrll 
take care of all the relocation issues when 
the program is executed, 

There are. however, a few occasions 
where it is necessary to write truly 
relocatable code, l,e. code that f without 
any address modification! can be placed 
anywhere in memory and yet still remain 
runnable Boot sector code is one such 
example Another is when say you ace 
writing an assembler routine to be used in 
conjunction with Amos jand some other 


Paul Dueraa outlines the basics of writing 
cade that is trulg relocatable 


Basic type languages,! 

A tess important use rs in speedi ng up 
the time it takes to load a program. With 
large programs you may have noticed that 
it takes much longer [a .'Dad a program 
pnor to execution than it Likes to simpty 
copy the same program file to memory [try 
it and seell This is the relocation overhead 
showing Itself and, if you write code that is 
faify relocatable you 'I find that not only 
doei this time overhead disappear but the 
executable file on disk wiS ateo be smallest 

In order to be truly relocatable, afl 
absolute address references within a 
program need to be removed and the way 
to do this is to use pcielative addressing. 
Thus is very similar to the 680x0 s register 
indirect addressing except that tine address 
of the operand u specified with respect to 
the program counter rather than wnh

There are no real difficulties involved in 
creating relocatable code as such., but there 
are a roupfe cl things to bear in mind 
concern ng I he differences between 
loading data via pc-reiative instructions, 
and the reverse process of storing data vw 
pc-rclative instructions- Basically, the 660x0

Afi ctxample translate 


To give an illustration of position 
independent rode. I’ve translated the 
assembler example that was provided In 
the (November issue fif you missed it - 
shame on you, but you can find a copy 
of the original source on this month's 
CoverDtsk). 

The program opened the dos library, 
obtained an _ : :tdout handle for wriLing 
data back to the Shell, and then 
displayed some text using a macro called 
WRITE DOS which made use of the dos 
library's Write]] function This macro, 
along with rhe GALLEYS and LIWKUB 
macros used withrn the November 
program, is snown in listing I . and the 
thing to notice is that both WTNTED05 
and LINKLIE mdude statements which 
lead to absolute addresses being 
produced. For example LfNKUB includes 
this line: 

isvc.L V2 r a6 
which in a call such as: 

CALiSYS Hhtl,J03EiSB 

results in this instruction being 
produced: 


nave. L J&SEaie,aD 

In other words the macro generates 


an absolute address reference and;] 
needless to say,, this must be removed] 
we want to produce relocatable tode.] 
Listing 2. which comes from the 
named blocs' which you'll also (if 
the CoverOisk, contains the ecu vale 
macros rn relocatable fonm. >f ve -.idc 
an R" to each of the names 
emphasise that these changes have 
been made]. You'll see that I ve cnangs 
the offendmg UNKilB macro imp to 
pc-refative form: 

iov«.t k£tpc) f i6 

and you II find similar changes ha 
been made to the WRITEDCS mac 
[now named WR1TEDQSR) in order fj 
ensure that it too then general 
position independent code. 

Despite the fact that convert* 
existing code to relocatable form 
task that should be fair 
straightforward, its still easy so mak 
silly slips fnameiy forgetting to rt 
the add absolute address referent 
Nowadays, many assemblers 
protect you from such mistakes 
Devpac. foe instance, includes an optic 
to check that program code ■ : ..mar 
independent, and with this optic 
activated any instructions that arc 
relocatable will oe flagged as errors!

SteuE White explains hnw mqu can mafce 
Hour 2D pictures realtg stand out with depth 
ordering and 3D emulation techniques 



This city skeleton Jn 

Imagine using wireframe. By ediHblnJrtg 
the power et several graphic 
application* you can mp emd up design 
tinea dramatically 

some way to visualising the finished 
rmage. Laying cfown the colours in depth 
order Is also very important if you are to 
use anti-aliasing (captained fast issue! If 
you anti-alias an image onto another that 
hasn't been coloured yet you Tl have to 
erase aif the aliasing effects, and redo the 


procedure later on Obviousfy. with the 
city scene the primary base colours are 
the actual texture and colour of the brick 
work on the foreground building - rn 


tVsign the ditie rent layers of your 
pic lure individually. Yen can than 
odd affects without interfering with 
other layers 


this example a dark grey, To add 
texture, use sJrghtfy darker shades of the 
base colour Don't make the colour 
change between the base colour and 
texture to apparent otherwise the effect 
wiif be lost and may overshadow the 
more important elements of the .image 


3D or not 3D 


ly scene that features depth, creating realistic looking objects is vitally 
irit. The problem with 2D image design is exactly that - its 2D and 
>re flat. Giving your image elements a 3D feel is extremely important if 
If shed piece is to look realistic. So how do you go about making 2D 
t look 3D? 

¥ are several ways to add a 3D feel to an Image and while most paint 
s can wrap, distort and stretch brushes in all directions, it is probably 
to add the effect by hand. One way is to add transitional colours much 
ni-a basing, if you fake a look at the road bridge and budding entrance 
II notice they have a 3D curved effect. The trick is to understand which 
lie light and which are dark - the road bridge base, for example, starts 
ght brown but as we move to the underneath if changes to a dark 
i indicating shadow and therefore creating a 3D feel, 
same effect has been applied to the actual building entrance. If no 
v effect was visible the entrance would look flat and dull but because I 
arkened the near side edge It actually looks like a structure jutting out 
he main building. The addition of a shadow cast by the road bridge 
ie structure enhances the effect even greater. 

a larger sct.le, you can emulate a 3D feel to your entire design by 
g the foreground detail sharper than the background detail. An 
mt way to achieve this is to use your paint packages Smooth effect, 
e filled rectangle tool with the Smooth tool switched on and drag a 
ross your background image. Any area covered by the box wifi be 
hed creating a blurred effect. Combine this technique with the one 
led above and you should be able to create realistic 3D looking Images 
Ime at all. 

irtunately. that s all J have time for this month but In the next issue f 
explaining how you can add special effects to your finished artwork. 



Here it (it# finished 
dly Keene, you can 
aea how the different 
layers whan c omb/ned 
add a («ni# of depth 
and realism 


Anti-aliasing 



Sometimes. antkaJiaslng doesn't always create The effect you want, if This Is the case 
you can simply emulate the effect yourself by adding colour spreads between l he two 
objects you are aliasing together. Toy can see this effect rn action m the screenshots 

shown. 

The white strip along the road 
bridge is drawn using the line tool 
and then filled. To smooth its 
appearance with the road, two 
transition colours have been added to 
the edges of each step that make up 
the strip Whether added by hand or 
by your paint package, the end result 
fS extremely effective. 


Jn tJii* picture you can see the 
aliasing affect. The two tmti 
images have no aliasing while 
the two right images have 
aliasing added by fs.-i.nd

s we might expert, quite a few Amiga 
I rwdware and software compart have 
I been working hard during the last few 
months in order to get new products out 
as Amiga Technologies bring then new machines 
into the shops. On the music front. New 
Dimensions, few example, brought out an updated 
Pro* version of their popular TechnoSound Turbo 2 
sampler and, since I've had the chance to play 
around with this package for quite a few weeks 
now, I thought it was time to fifi you in on some 
details! 

The first thing you'IF notice is that the program’s 
display layout hai been re-styled to make it easrer to 
use. The software itself rs as comprehensive as ever 
and as well as the main range of digitizing, sample 
editing and manipulation functrons, there's a 
rarnscan option for grabbing samples directly from 
memory, and 'edit test 1 arrangements for 
maintaining sets of samples in memory for 
immediate use. Of course, the integral sequencer 
and tracker facilities are still there too, as is the 
useful Mrdi module whxh enables samples to be 
triggered using a Midi keyboard or external 
Sequencer. 

One improvement Is the move to 1 2 -bit sample 
processing on many internal routines. Although this 
reduces potential quality loss when manipulating 6- 
bit samples, the main reason for the higher 
accuracy routines is to alfow the software to be 
used with New Dimensions own ] ? hrt sampler, 
H^dware-wrse, the new sampler unit looks 
pretty much Hke the 8-bit version except for an extra 
lead and connector - needed because the unit 
attaches to both the parallel and serial ports |the 


TechnoSound 
Turbo S Pro 



■ ft* w JDintanileo’i I.tIbiI 
fJ-M Hmplm; cirt/iiffd 

seraf port connector has a built in thru-port to 
allow other serial devices to be connected white 
the device is in use) The 1 Z-bit sampler does 
provide a noticeable improvement in sample quality 
but it's performance in terms of sampling rates will, 
of course, be affected by the processing speed of 
the Amiga bemg used. The maximum mono 
sampnng rate for a standard 6SOQO machine, for 
example, is 30576 Hz - on a 66020 machine it is 


Digital filtering 


The Pro version now boasts some very powerful digital filtering routines and a facility for editing 
individual channels. Digital filtenng essentially means applying certain mathematical transformations 
to the digitized waveform - you can, for example, use a row pass filter effect to remove unwanted 
hfss from a sample TechnoSound Turbo can apply low pass, high pass, and band pass filtering 
using either the Butterworth or Chebyshev filter equations. You can view frequency response 
graphs that show predicted amplitude attenuation and even get a display called a Z-Transfer ptoL 
Now air this, unless you are actively involved in the world of digital Signal processing techniques, 
is likely to sound a little high powered fthe theory behind it certainly isj. I found that the best thing 
to do in practice was to just experiment with the various settings, and in this respect the digital filter 
arrangements do seem quite impressive In the mam, however, f stiN believe that it's far better to 
concentrate on getting a good quafity sample rn the first place than to rely on digital filtering to 
improve things!

it ought to be pomted out at this stage that not 
alf processing carried out by the new software is 
being performed using 1 2-bit calculations. You've 
still got 8ftt direct to hard disk, recording, and real 
time effects Irlce phasing, echo, delay and the 
special Funtime 'novelty' effects feg Pinky 6 
Perky, Dalok and so on| are also performed in 
S-bit mode. So too are the tracker, sequencer 
and Midi module functions. 




Putting it on 
the line 


The TechnoSound Turbo Pro 2 software 
alone, with its new higher-resolution 
internal routines, makes an excellent 
basis for &-bit sampling and, in fact, the 
new Software is being bundled with 
8-bit hardware for users who just want 
an up-to-date 8 bit Amiga sampling 
package. Better still - existing 
TechnoSound Turbo users are, for a 
modest fee, able to upgrade just their 
software and this is clearly a 
worthwhile pathway for existing users 
to follow. Those who want to go the 
whole hog will, of course, need to also 
buy the additional hardware in order to 
get 12-bct sample recording capability. 
Although the new TechnoSound 
Turbo Pro 2 can t sample directly to disk 
In 12-bit mode, it does have advantages 
In other areas, namely that you do not 
need a PCMCIA port and this of course 
makes the package accessible to a wider 
range of people fASOO users for example! 
than, say, HiSoft's 12-bit Aura package.

I [S amazing r.nf if? One minute you 
I don't know what a Web is, nex t 
minute you re stuck m one and a 
spider is sitting next to you potting an his tab 
The Internet is *t big place and rf it wain r lor 
the likes of me trawling around it in my guise 
33 the Amiga Computing Comms columnist, 
people wouldn't know that, for example, there 
is a tot of Amos Action out there. Oh yes, we 
know about this whofe CIX Amqs conference, 
and good as it is, it can t compete with the 
whole wide wodd of the Web. 

The first port of call should always be 
Aminet because not only has it got a large 
collection of Amos programs for you to 
download, It afso has a huge range of other 
Amiga utils far you to snag. Primarily though, 
there are at least three sites on the Web which 
specialise in Amos, and if you have a Web 
account then this wouto be a good time to 
navigate to them and check them out. 

Amos Playfield

■ Although this site is run by enthusiasts, these 

no ordinary enthusiasts They produce the 
FLAYFJELD newsletter, one of the few 
remaining paper-based Amos life forms The 
ate is maintained by Ryan kott 
frs 0 ottd 9 Mi.net}, Paul Hickman 
(ph0doo.ic.ac.ufej, and Andy Church 
fachurrhSt-gogber. mbhs.edu). As well as 
information about Amos and PLAYFlELDf 
iTiagazine, there is a What's new in the scene?' 
page for news and views. [Ar the time of going 
Eg press this was under construction, so I haw 
no Idea what it looks like?} There rs also the 
^mas People page, which gives you email and

■pee the other Amos site}, Gareth Edwards, 

■ l *gei Harding, Christer Johansson, Seumas 
(J'lfcNally, Ben Marty, Hugg Ramses, Moreno,

The site also contains programming 
rmation. and commercial 4 PD software for 
dading, There are afso links to other 
a/Amos pages like; 

Productions Home Page - Commodore

■fchaei Witbroek. 

Aminet home page - ARexx Home Page, 
ntained by Robin Evans. 

Additionally there is a link to Amos City, but 
fJ go into that in a minute. There is also 
H&tensive coverage of the Amos Mailing List,

You do not have tojorn the fist to marl to it, 
but if you have not joined make if dear that you

available for the Amos marling list ah

A/I in alJ this is a good site, and if you want to 
stay in touch with the core of the Amos 
community, this is the place to be. Unless of 
course you want to go to: 

Amos Cfty 

http :/Avww . cee , hw.ae.uh/-Ceebdh/amos/ 

An extensive web site containing 'what you 
need to know about Amos on the Internet,' It 
has the necessary links to help you around. Also 
featured here are some helpful Amos files, from 
Bob banks to the Latest Amos extensions Chech 
out the Amos Projects page to see if anyone is 
working on anything similar to you. You can 
find this page at: 

h ttp://www.cee. h w . ac. u k/- ceebdb/amotf 
arrtospraj.html 

You can also download Ben Marty's 
programs: AmosFont, Rotate, Spnte View, 
Capitals. Scrofler, Guru and Stairs, and there is a 
direct Jink to the Aminet section on Amos You 
can also download the extensions Easylite, JD 
Ub. Ldos. Lserial. arid Stars 


This is a very nicely laid out site, and unlike 
the PlayfieJd site which- has a few broken links, 
all the buttons on this site go somewhere 

The Amos Web Site 

http://m m m .mbh5.edu/-achurch/ametf 

Finally a little site This first one is a good 
source for Amos information and products, 
Although it is basically a home page with 
some Amos stuff on it, it is actually very 
good. Andy Church turns up on The Arnos 
mailing list quite a lot, and is afso featured on 
the other two sites an this page. 


If you'd like your own web site so that you 
can feature your own Amos programs, why 
not contact Web Wizards at

possible make them use no external graphics, 
or if they can't be used without them then be

ost Amiga users are aware that 
ARexx scripts can communicate 
with other programs by 
transmitting external commands to 
the currently logged in ARexx. host' But did 
you know that a script can act as a receiving 
station For ARexx: commands sent by other 
programs? Best of ail, it's surpn singly easy to 
do because the rexxsupport library provides a 
whole range of functions that handle air the 
hard work. The roam thing that is needed is 
an appreciation of the basic message 
handling framework and., needless to say. 
this is what this month s instalment is all 
about. 

For a script to act as a receiving station for 
messages, it must have an ARexx port 
available. This can be created by making a 
call to the rexxsupport library's OpenPortfj 
function and, providing this call is successful 
(indicated by a non-NULL return value], the 
main communications scenario can then 
begin, Message collection starts with a call to 
a WaitPktJ] Jwait for message packet] 
function which puts the serrpt to sleep until 
something of interest happens, namdy the 
‘arrival of a message From another program. 

As soon as a message packet appears at the 
message port, WaitPfctf} returns and the 
address of this message can then be obtained 
via a call to a QetPkt|| function in most cases 
this will indeed provide the address of a real 
message but because there are occasions 
where the function can Fail, it is safest to check 
that the returned address is not zero. 

Providing all is well the text assorted 1 
with the message |which will be the real data 
sent by the external program! can be 
extracted The function which does this is 
tailed GetArgf] and just nequ res the address

oF the message packet and a parameter 
number which, when dealing with simple 
commands, will always be aero. Once the texf 
has been extracted from the message, the 
program which sent the message needs to be 
told that the block of memory associated it iis 
no longer required, This is done by executing 
the support library's iteplyfl function 
The basic scenario then goes irke this’ We 
set up an ARexx communications port and 

!* itsSiqt^Sfntf.rfis *i‘ 

Address 'import' 

‘Just soar miptt tut! 1

Listing 2; A limpit script mud to 
lunimit font# ex inapt e iMuisigus 


then wait fora message to arrive, When this 
happens we collect the message, extract the 
data, and then indicate that we no longer 
need access to the message by replying it 
Normally programs use a loop, often called 
an event handling foop. to carry out these 
sort of operations, and a typical piece of 
event handling code is shown in listing one 
In this fragment, which comes from one of 
the examples you'll find an disk, I'm just 
printing the contents of each message as it 
arrives and quitting the loop as soon as if 
'QUIT' string is detected Notice, incidentally, 
how J use the ARexx - operator to invert the 
state of the exit. flag variable, thus creating a 
loop which is only performed as long as the 
exit flag is not sell 



Some runnable code 


The easiest way to come tu terms with alt 
these ideas is to look at the two examples on 
disk and run them. To do thus copy bDth the 
message jKetve.rewc and the 
message, send, rexx scripts to ram and open 
two Shell windows setting the current 
directories of both windows to ram- Now type 

its atilt}! ruiint 

at one of the Shell windows. Vou'll find that 
nothing appears to happen, but in reality the 
script is just sitting there wafting far some 
other program to send it a message, ff you 
now switch to the other Shell window and 
type: 

ri SEJ. 5 aflt„ 5 Er,il 


you'll see this text appear at the first Shell 
window: 

Just saat EiaipU tEit! 

QUIT 

Additionally, the message receive, rexx. script 
will then terminate and Che normal Shell 
prompt will reappear. You II see why this 
happens by looking at listing 1 which is the 
complete message_sencf.re.xx script. 

This program starts by using the Address 
command to set the current host to 'rnyporf, 
which is the .ARexx port that was opened by 
the message .receive, rexx script . The other two 
lines in luting 2 are just text strings which, 
because they mean nothing to ARexx itself, get 
classified as being commands intended for an 


external program and are transmitted to the 
cu rrent host - namely the message_rer:erve,fexx 
script! 

There's not a lot of pomf in going into a lot 
of detail about how the- various rexxsupport 
library functions work beneath the surface |The 
explanations are in fact quite complicated!. 
You'll appreciate the overall ideas far more 
easily by just examining trie code and seeing it 
in action. 

The thing to do with this month's examples 
then is to play around with them, modify thc- 
text messages that are sent, and generally get 
a feel for what s going on. Cnee you ve 
understood the overall framework of the 
example event handling loop, you should be 
able to create similar loops in your own scripts 
relatively easily!

R was intrigued las: month when at the 
I Labour Party’s annual conference. 

| | leader Tony Blarr uncovered the plans 
for BTs new fibre optic-based branch Of the 
Information Superhighway, and it's plans to 
send entertainment broadcasts down the pipe 
as well as phone calls, This opened a veritable 
tin of worms at the time, and the argument still 
rages today, albeit at a slightly lower level In 
Other words people are still muttering about it. 

It was a good plan though, and J thought rt 
had promise. Firstly, it means that when Labour 
get in at the next election (no other outcome 
seems more likely at this time, despite the 
Conservative posturing at their own 
conference] we will be charging ahead into the 
information age with the rest ot Europe, and 
not lagging behind. Secondly, all the 
restrictions, or at feast some of the more 
important ones, will be lifted from AT and give 
us the kind of communications system in this 
country which I ve been banging on about for 
months. Mo, it's years, because the phrase 
Information Superhighway was first bandied 
about around lour to five years ago. 

Not least of the new benefits will be that 
* schools can finally throw off the shackles of the 
Acorn machine with which they have been 
saddled since the early '60s and access the new 
network using tools of their choosing, namely 
those nice cheap new A1 20Ds which are 
supposed to be flooding the market, perhaps? 
And why not. An A 1 200 has most of the things 
Ghat you would need to access a multimedia 
network, has it not? Sound, and graphics on a 
par with PCs. and a .keyboard and a serial pod 


Information 

Superhighway 


boo. And all for UOQ, But mostly it means that 
our country wifi have a say in what goes into 
the global version pf the fnifarmaDian 
Superhighway, which in many ways is the 
point. 

What happens if the Information 
Superhighway is developed by the US and 
Europe without our input? Does this mean well 
have a repeat performance of the internet, 
CompuServe, eWorld and Defphi, where most 
□f the content is so UScenmc as to be of low 
interest to a UK user? The answer is that we 
must not lag behind again.. 

1 say again because there was a time when 
the UK led the world in computer technology 
and communications AfJ the leading 
developments in computers up until the '80s 
were made in the UK, and we were one Of the 
first countries in the world to have a thriving 
communications community, what WTth the rise 
of BBSs in the SOs on platforms such as the 
Spectrum and late lamented Commodore 64, 
What happened 7 We still have a high revel of 
takeup of the Internet and its services. We have 
a large Internet community and a large number 



of businesses talcing notice of the internet, But 
we seem to have little interest m the UK being a 
place where innovations are made 

it's time this group of old school ties we 
have in power at the present time got wind of 
the fact that we need an information policy 
and we need it now, not next week Perhaps 
they could take time off from giving huge pay 
rises to their chums in industry and put a little 
thought and money into making the UK a place 
■whenp people from all over the world come to 
buy information resources, web space and, 
more importantly, services from skilled 
computer people. We used to be the best at 
this, and now we are struggling to keep up 
The message is simple: time for change of 
policy or time for a change of government, 

That was a party political broadcast on the 
behaff of the Sick and Tired of Waiting for the 
information Superhighway Party.

I f you are ever lucky enough ta get a 
I job doing DTP full r no. you might 
be lj mi JCJky enough to get pushed 
into packaging design I say unlucky because 
unless you are working for a small company 
with a continuous stream of new products to 
package, you will probably be working for an 
established firm with concrete ideas on how 
they want their products to took and a 
corporate identity to maintarn. 

Packaging design is one of the most 
ubigurtous forms of desrgn work, and the one 
taken most for granted. Supermarket chains 
work long and hard making sure that 
packaging is just rrghi, often spending many 
thousands of pounds to get the effect they 
want on a product that might only cost 29p. 
As such, packaging design should be a 
constant source of inspiration to budding 
OTPers out there. When you next go into your 


local supermarket, notice how arl the 
supermarket s own brand products have a 
consistent look to them. The logo is afways in 
an important hut discrete location on the 
packaging - the supermarket want you to buy 
tesco MILK, not TESCQ milk - and the 
packaging is also usually sJighrJy less grand 
than a brand name product, 


mnnvFOLO 


The reasons for this are manyfold, but two 
of the most important are the fact that af the 
supermarket don't want to grandstand the 
brand and bj if you pick up the supermarket’s 
own brand, you might think it a cheaper 
product [which rt often jsJ and buy it, This 
pleases the supermarkets no end because 
they make more profit on their own branded 
goods than on a brand name item. The 
design is a subtle form of reverse psychology 
in this instance 

So heres an example of real-fife packaging, 
Whrle not overly impressive in the origmanty 
stakes, the desFgn does show up some of the 
necessities of a supermarket-branded product. 

The first thing to note is the generic 
product name. When I was a kid, jelly Huttons 
were always called spogs,’ Whiieyou might 
not know them by that name. I m sure that 
Bertram Bassett Esq. has a more edifying 
name for them than merely jelly Buttons. 
However, Samsburys are definitely not Bertie 
Bassett, so whatever name has been dreamed 


It's all in the 
presentation 



up tor them by Bertie 5 
marketing men, it can't 
be used by Sainsburys. 

The milk bottles have 
always reafly had a 
generic name, a bit like 
baked beans, so the 
recognition factor is 
high already. Both 
designs are simple and 
unctuttered, using as 
few colours as possible 
- three for the spogs 
and only two for the 
milk bottle;. Notice, 
also, the window in 
both packets allowing 
the possible 
purchaser to have a 
closer took at the 
merchandise on 
offer This is a very 
important factor 
with food products 
in today's highly 
processed, highly 
packaged society. 

Even packages that 
are completely 
opaque will quite 
often be openable 
to allow for a peer 
inside at the 
contents. 

As a last resort, 
the supermarket wtJf 
always put a picture of the product, qurte often 
m combination with other, more expensive items, 
on the packaging in a serving suggestion', 
l know this article must seem like a waste of 
time to the amateur DTP enthusiast, the issues 


involved 

(bearing little relevance lor the man in the 
street, but it aN highlights how involved a 
process DTP and design actual^ es. 


Casual 


The reason I used two such seemingly boring package designs is to 
accentuate the actual work that goes into making attractive and 
effective products. Wore the vertical stripes at the top and bottom of 
each packet drawing the eye to the middle where the window is. The 
typography used on each is actually fairty irrelevant to the desrgn and 
even a bit puzzling for the spogs The milk bottles text would have 
worked just as well if rt was in a chalk^on-a-blackboard typeface or 
something Jike AdLib. 

The typeface tor the spogs seems to be suggesting something a bit 
dassler than just sweets, You might imagine iainsburys using this 
particular font for afterto inner mints or something similar. The duJfer 
packagi ng also suggests that perhaps the target audience for the sweets 
is somewhat older than for the milk bottles - perhaps spogs don't 
appeal to six^year olds [they drd to me when J was that age). 


effects 


Turning to the back of the packets, notice how. although simrlar. thc- 
etemenb are not rdentical, Part of this has to do wrth one aspect of the 
scanned packets that you won't be able to appreciate - the different 
matenals. The milk bottle packet is made of a glossier, slightly thicker 
plastic than the spog bag. and I would think that the pnnting method is 
different too. The thicker lines, simpler design, and bolder fonts on the 
spog bag read me to believe that if has probably been printed using a 
process akin to screen printing, while the mlk horde packet looks more 
like a traditional offset lithe process - I'm not sure, because I have never 
dealt wrth commercial pointing onto piastres. 

Anyway., make sure you have a good hard took at the products you 
buy the next time you are rn a supermarket - rt might surprise you how 
much you miss. Next month, rm going to continue with the commercial 
sfde of thi ngs and take a took at copyright law.

G AT THING 


SPECIAL NO SARCASM ISSUE! 


Super SFH Turbo 






jjgj 

I ast montn I mentioned the various 
I fent types available on the Amigo 
and how to convert them rnto 
formats suitable for use with video and 
graphics programs, if necessary. This month I 
want to look at the various styles of font 
available and give you some pointers as to 
how best to use them in your graphics and 
video applications, and also some indications 
of areas to avoid when using fonts for video 
output. 

Broadly speaking, fonts can he divided into 
two main groupings - Serif and Sanserif. Serif 
fonts have extensions on the end of the main 
strokes and hair fines of their letters, whereas 
Sansenr fonts are srmply plain fetters with no 
serif embeNrshments. Whether you use Serif or 
Sanserif fonts in your video productions is 
obviously a matter of personal taste I tend to 
use Sanserif fonts in circumstances where 
information needs to be quickly and simply 
presented, such as scroJFing video trties, lists 
and captions, and Serif fonts when i want my 
data to have a Irttle more class' and to he more 
rn keeping wrth the subject matter it is bemg 
used for. 

Naturally, there are other forms within these 
two broad categories, such as script-style fonts 
and those which emulate typewriter lettering, 
for example, although the former might strll be 
Sanserif and the latter Serif Script fonts give a 
more natural personated handwriting fed, 
whereas a typewriter style might imply fast- 
breaking news being teleiyped onto the screen, 
or give the impression of a secret document. 

FUTURISTIC 

I also mentioned Colorfonts last month. 

Their advantage is, that while they still remarn 
within the Serrf/Sanseof grouprngs. they can 
use more than one colour to evoke extra 
meaning - for instance, by having a futuristic 
chrome look, or mimic naturally occurring 
materrals such as gold, granite or marble, 
which can be useful if you need a particular 
feei to your graphics or video text 

Obviously. the context of your images rs 
important when you are choosing fonts if 
you re titling a period drama then you should 
try to choose a font which is sympathetic to 
the date in which the drama is set. A Victorian 
epic rs unlikely to benefit from the use of hi* 
tech digital lettering, nor is a flowing gothic 
script likely io complement a nature 



Fonts pa " !

documentary. These things should really be 
common sense, but J have seen people make 
some weird font choices at times and 
wondered if they had really considered just 
why they were using them, apart from the fact 
that they had them handy and they Irked 
them 

So it s always important to weigh the pros 
and cons of taking the easy way out and 
making a compromise just because you're 
feeling I ary or running through a shorMrst 
selection of fonts and making your choice after 


due consideration for the style and setting of 
the graphic or video you r- working on. 


Next month 

Vet more on the use of 1 tints, For video 
and graphic p, 

Vou can e-mail Gary Vhiteley as 
drgazQc ix comp-. . ii ik, co.uk 


Legibility 


Another important consideration is the size of the fettering you use, since 
rat only does size impart a degree of importance to the text but it can also 
make the difference between visibility and invisibility. There's no need to go 
srzecrazy and make ail your text as large as possible (unless a particular 
project calls for it of course) but there's equally no point in making rt sp 
small as to be illegible. Watch out for then fines in fonts toe, as they may 
ether jitter or simply disappear rf you are genlocking your graphics over 
video, As a quick rest to see rf your text is going to hit the spot, step back 
from your monitor perhaps ten or twelve feet and see rf you can read it 
from this more norma! TV viewing distance. If you can't, choose a larger 
size. 

This is where CGFonts come into their own, since they are not limited to 
particular feed sizes, (ike bitmap fonts are. Unfortunately, there aren't many 
Amiga video triers which can use CGFonts directly (though more advanced 
versions of Scala canj but most current graphics packages are quite happy 


with CG Fonts, so if you need to prevww sizes you car always use a suiteble 
paint program and then make hrtmap versions of particular CGFontj to use 
with your titling software (so long as your titter permits ydu to use external 
fonts, that isj 

In fact, once you've established your favourite CGFonts and 
experimented with a range of useful sen, it can be very useful to make a 
library of bitmap fonts: and use these instead, because rhij is basically what 
is happening when you change the size of a CGFont on me fly and have to 
wait white a new screen font is produced before you see : on the screen. 

If you don e have a particularly fast Arruga then making brtmap 
equivalents of CGFonts can be crucial, because your A'niga might not be 
able to keep up if it a having to do lo& of rescuing during a title sequence, 
for instance. Bitmap Fonts will simply Joad and display as you require them 
(unless they are very large| and your presentations wif' run much more 
smoothly as a result.
