Pentiums, P6 chips, millions spent 
and vast fortunes in the making, 
The question is, does the buying 
public get a real bang for theii bud, or simply 
end up enguKed in the aftershock of endless 
investment and upgrades? 

Given the money and marketing lavished on 
the new breed of so calked 'user friendly 1 PCs, 
it would seem there's no choice when it 
comes to home computing. Like a double seal 
on the train, you've got to get in first - stocks 
wont last, buy or be laughed at. The marketing 
pressure is intense. 

There's no test byte, the all powerful PC sits 
in shop fronts across the land struggling to 
scroll a seemingly endless stream of virtues 
before the eyes of any would-be investors. II 
you want the best you've got to pay for it The 
question is, what’s on sale here - the machine 
or the marketing? 

Just six months ago a friend of mine- quite 
rightly bred of the seemingly endless wait for 
the Amiga to get back on Hs little rubber feet. 
After lots of reading and research he opted for 
a quality PC. Even after a lot of bartering his 
new baby still weighed in at a hefty El 400. 

Problem child 

At the time this new 'all singing all dancing' 
sibling was the apple of his daddy’s eye, 
Unfortunately, just six months on this rapidly 
ageing 4&G DXII has become something of a 
problem child- 

The Pentium is now well and truly ruling 
the roost, and his train spotting, acne ridden 
DX is rapidly becoming a computing wall- 
flower- The glossy games that added so much 
attraction to the initial investment now 
demand a Pentium to deliver the promise 
so lavishly emblazoned m print and on the 
packaging, 

Like the average hot-hatch, his former pride 
and joy would be lucky to generate a third of 
its showroom asking price out on the street 
And yes, I know Amiga's depreciate as well, 
but the pain of depreciation is directly linked 
to the initial investment. And in relation to 
the PC, that's one area in which the Amiga 
certainly scores some points. 

Of course, pride and poverty doesn't enter- 
tain the idea of selling up. After all "it's still a 
serious machine that can run everything a 
Pentium tan, 1 The point is, did he really want a 




serious machine, or something that could play 
games and still be taken seriously. Man, 
machine and marketing in perfect turmoil. 

The question of keeping up with the Jones’, 
Pentiums, P6s is a familiar tale across every 
platform, including the Amiga, However, the 
forgotten hero does have few distinct advan- 
tages in the dog eat dog world of the PC, 

Not least of these is a generic background, 
ivory Amiga sold has a standard architecture 
and although this can be expanded upon with 
assorted accelerators and ad-ons, the basic 
structure remains he same. As a consequence, 
developers are forced to work within prede- 
fined guidefines which in the longterm benefit 
all. 

its true there's a fair amount of diversity 
within the platform as a whole, but as a gen- 
eral rule there is a degree of uniformity which 
goes a long way to combating the evolutionary 
f renzy that dogs the PC 

The relaunch d the A 1200 may not be a 
technological breakthrough, but at least it 
offers an alternative to confusion, unnecessary 
expenditure, and the marketing hype that sur- 
rounds the constantly changing landscape d 
the PC market 

Perhaps the most important question for 
any would-be buyer is not which machine is 
the most powerful, but which is the most 
appropriate. The gloss and glamour of the 
Pentium and Microsoft marketing machine 
leads many to overtook the real issues, 

It's all too easy to fall into the dinner party 
bore mentality and justify your investment by 
reassuring yourself and others that if you 
wanted too, you could rum Photoshop, 
QuarkXPress, Microsoft Word and so on. But in 
the cdd light of day, are you ever really likely 
to? - especially considering that just one of 
these blue chip applications could buy you an 


The ads are glossy, the type is 
at feverish pitch, but is there 
really a safe distance when it 
comes to the PC explosion? 

entire Amiga, Admittedly, PC games and 
indeed some applications are pulling away 
from their Amiga counterparts, but so are their 
prices and the cost in hardware required to 
run them. 


No CHANCE 

Don't get me wrong. A 1 QOMHi Pentium with 
1 6Mb of RAM, a quad-speed CD-ROM and 1 7 
inch monitor is a very respectable machine. 
But don't expect to get much change out of 
E20C0. And be warned - this sort of spec is 
rapidly becoming the entry point for a PC with 
more than a six month shelf live, 

Contrast that against the £350 asking price 
for an A 1200 and you have a real incentive to 
look long and hard at your reasoning, There 
are almost as many reasons for investing in a 
computer as there are computers on the mar- 
ket However, if you ate in the market, make 
sure you're buying the machine and not just 
the marketing that surrounds iL By the way, 
this shouldn't be a problem on the Amiga, as 
there isn't any,..

D espite setbacks regarding the com- 
patibility of the new Amiga drives, 
Amiga Technologies have announced some 
positive developments tor the future of the 
Amiga. 

Cilles Sour din. Head ol Public Relations 
for Amiga Technologies, was positive about 
the company's forthcoming plans and was 
keen to express his delight at the response 
to the recent Paris Amiga show held this 
December He remarked: "in spite of the 
(act France was in chaos [because of the 
strikes] many people still came." It was esti- 
mated that between 3,000 and 4,000 peo- 
ple turned up to see, amongst other things, 
the new Amiga 4000 Tower with the 060 


ES FROM AMIGA 


processor. Demonstrated on it was TV 
Paintl.G with a Wacom Art Pad, "People 
were very excited by the speed of the 
set-up" Bourdin continued. A question 
and Answer session took place on the 
Sunday, 

AT have also unveiled more on their 
mystery Internet package due for release in 
January, An exact price was not revealed 
although they stated that it would be 
below 1 100 DM {around £600} and would 
include all the software needed to get on 
the Internet bundled with an Al 200. This 
would include a PC Slot Modem, TCP/IP 
Stack, Web Browser, FTP program, E-mail 
program and IRC program, A rumour that

Netscape was being ported over to the 
Amiga was denied, Bourdin stated: "'There 
will be a lot of new software coming out 
lor the Amiga soon bom companies that 
have never developed for the Amiga before 
who previously work on PC and Mac prod- 
ucts. There will be some Web Browsers of 
very high-quality but we are definitely not 
dealing with Netscape." 

However, another rumour doing the 
rounds was validated at the recent press 
conference in Hannover. It was believed 
that Apple had offered Amiga Technologies 
a port of QuickTime and at the conference 
which was attended by Executives from 
Apple, Germany, the deal was confirmed-

Qompatiblity reply 


E oil nwmg last month's report that owners of the new Amiga Magic Packs were experieno 
■ mg compatibility problems, Amiga Technologies gave us their response: "We have noticed 
that there are some problems with games software on the new Amiga A 1 200 J s, To resolve this, 
we are working on a hardware solution that will be fitted at no tost to the customer, by an 
authorised Amiga Dealer."’ 

They continued; "To avoid such problems in the future, we kindly encourage that software 
publishers make sure that the programs they develop respect the programming guidelines. 
Amiga Technologies will be happy to process any information requests horn developers con- 
cerning this issue." 


ORLD OF 
AMIGA 

B y the time you read this the World 
of Amiga show will have taken 
place in Ontario, Canada, Billed as North 
America's largest Amiga Trade Show, 
Petro Tyschtschenko, General Manger of

TO FLY 


I fa been months in development but Ocean have now announced that TFX is going ta 
come out on the Amiga after all. Amiga Computing investigated claims that it wasnt 
going to be released when a disgruntled reader called us, angry at having upgraded his Amiga 
Specifically for the forthcoming flight sim to be then told that it wasn't coming out at all. We 
reviewed the game back in May 1995 from the final AmigoD version and found it to be an 
excellent game with the exception of a few bugs. We were also concerned that the game 
would not nun satisfactorily on a standard A1200 which we reported at the time. 

According to a spokesman from Ocean, DID decided It wasn't good enough and despite 
problems with the original programmer, pressed on to make a version they were happy with. 
We can happily report now that the game will be released in April and we hope to bring you a 
re-review as soon as possible. 

DID are also continuing to support the platform with another title in the pipeline. Details are 
sketchy at the moment but we'll bring you more as we get it

UMOUR OF NEW AMIGA OS 


A miga Computing have heard on the grapevine of a new operating system for the Amiga, 
The information we have received so far is that it is not WB V4-1 and is a new third-party 
OS. Apparently it's written in C and therefore PowerPC native. From the rumour we heard, it 
will 'charge the way you will use your Amiga’' because of a system that works with 'modules 
and a language similar to ARexx. Hm,

OFFER AMIGA TUITION 


E ssex-based Springfield Multi 
Media have announced their 
latest initiative to give owners the 
most benefit from the new Amiga 
packs. The company have expanded 
the pack with extra memory, a L200Q 
genlock, and half a day of training on 
how to use the package. 

The company commented: "Quite 
often new Amiga users, particularly 
with video in mind, are left to strug- 
gle, often buying inappropriate 
software and hardware and rarely 
obtaining the full benefit of their 
purchases. Qur new Amiga pack 
represents excellent value for money 
by packaging it with additional mem- 
ory and a superb genlock, together 
with our training session, to make 
sure the user is all set to gain immedi- 
ate benefit," The complete package is 
available for El, 150 from Springfield 
Mufti Media. Contact them on 01245

If the thought of the dentists drill instils deep fear in you 
then worry no longer because Virtual Products have a new 
approach that could take the dentist-day blues away, 

Virtual Products, the company behind the virtual reality 
headset i-gl asses are now installing the headset into dentists 
surgeries to take the patient's mind off the treatment they're 
having. 

The glasses allow the patient to 
watch 3D films or listen 
to music videos but 
because ol the 
glasses' 1 size and 
weight, the dentist 
can still access the 
patient's mouth easily. 

Through the headset 

the patient can experience the effect of a two metre 
screen with stereo sound. The glasses can display 2 
or 3D video, PC games and television. They are 
compatible with standard video output and can be 
connected to- an Amiga, Apple or IBM PC. 

Denis Premiski, Virtual Product's General Manager 


commented: "The i-glasses are extremely adaptable and can 
be applied to many different situations, with dentistry as just 
another application." He continued: "in this case, it provides 
considerable benefits to both dentist and patients, creating a 
relaxed environment and satisfied customers,"

Extracting disks 


Before you even think of putting the 
cover disks anywhere near your com- 
puter you should make sure you write 
protect them. By moving the black tab 
in the top corner of the disk F so you 
can see through the hole, you prevent 
your disks being damaged in any way. 
There should be no reason why the 
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 sec- 
ond disk you must make sure you have 
booted your computer with the first 
cover disk, otherwise your Amiga will 
not be able to find the cdnstaller pro- 
gram, and frustration wilt soon set in. 

To extract any single archive, simply 
double-click its icon and follow the on- 
screen instructions. If you want to 
quickly extract the program to RAM, 
select the NOVICE level on the wel- 
come screen and press proceed once 
on the current screen, and then again 
on the next, The program can then be 
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 wait

To easily run ImageVision from Workbench you need 3Mb of RAM. Unfortunately, there is no 
easy way around this, ft's just that to get the Sort of features that Image Vision provides you 
need a lot of RAM- Having said that, it is just possible to get ImageVision up and running on a 
2Mb machine. 

This will still allow you try out the program, but you will not have very much memory left 
over, 2Mb owners will have to do the following: after you have installed ImageVision into, say, 
your Work: partition, reset your machine and hold down both the mouse buttons. This brings 
up the Amiga's early startup menu, and here you just dick an the boot wfffi no startup button, 

This starts your Amiga with the absolute minimum amount of Stuff in memory, To run 
ImageVision you need to type the following.

Screen Menu is a tiny little program that adds a well needed function 
to your Amiga's screen bar in the form of a new selectable menu from 
the screen cycle gadget, rn the top right of the screen. This menu lists 
all the currently opened screens and by selecting one you can jump 
straight to it. This saves you having to individually flick through each 
one - if you have a lot of screens open you can end up Kicking past the 
one you want and have to cycle through them all over again, 
ScreenMeno can be started from either Workbench or the shell.

This will now start ImageVision but you will only have around 350k to play around with. Ta 
get some more memory there are a couple of other things you can do. from withir' 
ImageVision itself you should select a non-interlaced screen mode, Vou can also remove a coy 
pie of files from the image Vision directory, if you select show all files from the Workbent 
menu and go info the system drawer, delete the pattern drawer and then go into the modulr 
drawer and delete the two Mpeg module files. This save further memory when you rur 
ImageVision. Vou may even want to remove the Anim modules.

how ScreenMenu works. 
Qualifiers can be set to on 
or off, and if it is on you 
have to press the shift key 
before the menu will 
appear. There is also a Delay 
option so that if you do not 
use a qualifier, you can set a 
short delay before the menu 
appears so that the screen 
cycle gadget can be used as 
normal. 



SleepyPointers 


Author: Antonio Santos 

Workbench: 3.0 


It is amazing. We are meant to have this great 
multimedia computer with, all its specialised 
custom chips to provide sprite and blitter 
support and what do you get to look at 
when you are waiting for something to 
finish? If you are lucky you can gorp at 
boring old stationary clock symbols - woopy- 
doo-dar. 

Well SleepyPointers is to the rescue. This 
very well written shareware program will 




banish those oid boring wait pointers toj 
well, somewhere else, and instead you 
have the choice of either a lovely spinniry 
hour glass or the classic spinning watch 
pointers, 

To get SleepyPointers up and running j 
double-dick on whichever style pointer you 
like, and ff you want to run it every time 
start your computer, just drop the icon in 
your WBStartup drawer.

ImageVision 


Author: ImageLob Technology 

Workbench: 3.H, Hard Drive, 3Mb RAM 


You have read the review, now you can try 
out ImageVision for yourselves, in this 
saved disabled demo - all the functions 
and options of the full program ate 
available for you to try out here. 

As in the full program, you get a tutorial 
script that is automatically loaded II you 
run this you will get a feel for what 
ImageVision is capable of. If you have trou- 
ble understanding any of the functions you 
can hit the help button and the contest- 
sensitive AmigaGuide help wifi pop up, 
allowing you to read all about the current 
functions, 

ImageVision has three main windows. 
The largest is the main script window 
where you construct presentations. Icons 
can be dragged into this from the icon win- 
daw allowing you to add! another section 
to the current script 

To link icons together after you have 
brought a new ore onto the script window 
you must dick on the top of the white tail 
that comes out of the top of each icon and 
drag it over to the icon you want it 
connected to. Menu icons are the onfy 
ones that can have more than one icon 
connected to it. To adjust the settings of 


any of the icons you should double-click 
on that icon. This will bring up a new 
requester in which you can modify any of 
the settings. As ImageVision internally 
muhitasks you are able to have as many of 
these windows open as you like, and you 
can even work on more than one script at 
a time. 

Once you have set up a script to test it, 
just hit the run icon in the tools window 
on the right of the screen, Most of the 
normal editing tools are available here. If 
you want to cut any icon connection you 
select the icon and then hit the tut 
connection icon. 


Installing 

ImageVision 


Author: I mage Lab Technology 

Workbench: 3.0, Hard Drive, 3Mb RAM. 


For you people lucky enough to have an 
AGA machine with a hard drive you will be 
able to try out this great program for your- 
selves. Installing ImageVision is very 
straightforward if you follow these simple 
instructions. 

The simplest and quickest way to do this 
is to boot your machine with your hard 
drive, and once Workbench has loaded 
insert the first coverdisk. For this extraction

process to work properly a couple of files 
are needed on your hard drive, namely the 
Amiga Installer program and Lha, If you 
open up the coverdisk window and dou- 
ble-click on the SetUp-HD icon this will 
check if you have these to program, and if 
not they will be copied over on to your 
system. 

Once this has been done you can just 
double-click or the ImageVision icon, and 
either extract the program to RAM or your 
hard drive. After this the program needs to 
be actually installed onto your system, so 
double-click on the install icon and follow 
the on -screen; instructions. 

This is an early version of ImageVision 
and it can have problems with certain over- 
scan settings, so if you find some menu 
burtons do not respond, try setting your 
PAL overscan settings to 720x275, or for 
DblPal to 720*550, and this should dear 
up any problems.

Installing Hillsea Lido demo 


The easiest way to get the Hillsea Lido demo op and 
running is to reset your computer and then insert the 
second coverdisk into the internal drive, Follow the on- 
screen commands and when you are asked to insert a 
blank disk, remove the coveidisk and place a blank disk 


into the internal drive and hit return. Once this has fin- 
ished, if you reset your machine you will be able to play 
Hillsea Lido from this disk. 

Hard drive users will be pleased to know that the 
demo is hard drive installable, as is the full game. To 


copy the game on to your hard drive, go into 
Workbench and drag the Hillsea Lido game disk icon 
into the directory window where you wish the game's 
drawer to be created, Just open this drawer and dou- 
ble-click on the Hillsea Lido icon. 


Hillsea Lido Demo - the seaside 

MANAGEMENT SIMULATOR. 


Author Vulcan Software 

Workbench 2,04 


Your business proposals have been 
approved by the local authorities and they 
have wished you every success with your 
seaside development project, You have been 
granted 20 metres of beach and correspond- 
ing promenade, plus full ownership of the 
Pier Theatre. You will have the opportunity 
to expand your resort up to a maximum site 
of 200 metres in the future. How you 
choose to manage your resort is entirely 
your concern, but the authorities maintain 
the right to reward or penalise you in areas 
that remain under their jurisdiction. 

Hillsea Lido is a seaside management 
simulator. In effect this means you are given 
access to all the elements needed to turn an 
empty stretch of beach into a thriving resort 
It sounds easy enough but the reality is far 
more complicated.. You will need to show 
real flair as an entrepreneur in order to use 
the different elements of the game to your 
advantage, 

Hillsea Lido is a mouse-driven game, and 
most of the icons in the game have two or 
three functions. For example, when increas- 
ing the selling price of, say, the candy floss, 
you tan use the left mouse button to 
increase the total by one, the right mouse 
button to add ten, or both mouse buttons to 
add a hundred. Also, the scrolling action 
area can be speeded up using combinations 
of mouse buttons. If you are in any doubt, 
just experiment and you will soon find vari- 
ous short cuts that allow you to control the 
game in the way you want. The first thing 


. 


I'- I thank you ladies 
and gentlemen. f$t my 
nert tmfi— 


you see when starting Hillsea Lido is 30 
-metres of empty Promenade Behind the 
Promenade is your beach which can be 
accessed by clicking the LMB on the beach 
icon at the bottom of the screen. These two 
are known as the Action Areas and are 
where the results of all your decisions take 
place, When your resort eventually expands 
you will then be able to scroll left and right 
along its entirety by using the arrow icons 
at the bottom of the screen. The main icons 
are situated beneath the Action Areas and 
allow you to access the different elements 
of Hillsea Lido.

Catalogue 

SeaPreams wares are displayed in a cata- 
logue which is relevant to whether you are 
viewing the beach or promenade when you 
choose this icon. You can scroll through 
this catalogue of shops and facilities by 
clicking on the salesman's hand or the bot- 
tom of the catalogue. Each page shows you 
a picture and a description of the shop and 


facility. If you wish to buy one simply dick 
on the pile of cash and your mouse point- 
er will be exchanged for a rectangle to rep- 
resent the siie of the shop or facility. You 
must then paste this rectangular scaled 
down representation at the bottom of the 
screen. If you change your mind you can 
dick on the RMB to escape before pasting. 

To purchase more land simply dick on 
the sand mound and for more information 
about SeaDreams Ltd dick on their logo. 
Once built you can click on the shop or 
beach hire facility in the Action Area, and 
use the LMB to access their individual 
information screens In here you can set 
the price of your stock or your rides by i 
clicking on the arrows, and you can

The bleach bar is an indication of how 
dean your shop is, or the spanner, in the

how safe they are. You tan clean your

which is situated on the right of the screen. 
The demolish icon speak for itself. 

All the different types of stock you will 
ever require for your promenade shops are 
displayed here, You can set the amount of 
stock you wish to order using the arrow 
buttons, and when you are satisfied with 
your order dick on the sales woman who 
I will inform you if the stock is available, it it 
is, the delivery truck will start off on its 
journey, 

Entertainment 

You can book an act for your theatre any 
day of the week in readiness for the Sunday 
show night. Scroll through the acts by click- 
ing on the arrows on the left of the screen, 
and when you have chosen one simply click 
on the cash and the act will be booked, the 
ticket price on the right of the screen 
changes depending on which act you 
choose. On Sunday night you will be auto- 
matically transported to the theatre so you 
can see all the people piling into it, along 



with all the lovely dosh you will be making, 

You can hire various individuals to work 
on a casual basis. The left hand side of the 
screen applies to the promenade and the 
right to the beach. Find out. more informa- 
tion about each character with the LMB, 
and the hire button will do just that - hire 
people. 

The tourist screen allows you to find out 
all sort of information about the people that 
come to visit your beach, Each tourist gives 
Seven ratings on your beach. When they 
visit a shop three bars appear rating the 
politeness of the staff, pricing, and how 
dean the shops and beach are. The other 
four at the bottom of the screen relate to 
how much they want of the following: 
sugar, hunger, thirst and souvenirs. They will 
also tell you what they would like you to 
build next, and the customer is always right 
- so yoii r d better listen. 

If you think you can save money by being 
a skin flint and rot paying cleaning and 
repair bills, think again. Regular health and 


safety checks will fine lax beach owners over 
dirty or dangerous shops and rides, Once a 
ride has been fined, the warning never goes 
unless you demolish it, If you let things 
really slip you could even injure or poison 
someone, and then you will be fined even 
more. 


Installing Tritus demo 


After the Hillsea Lido demo has been copied onto a 
blank disk you will be able to do the same process for 
our deittu version uf the shareware game Tritus. Just 
wait until you are prompted to insert a blank disk and 
then hit return. 


Once this has finished, if you reset your machine you 
wilt be able to play Tritus from this disk. Hard drive 
uscts will again be pleased to know that Tritus is hard 
drive installable. To copy the game on to your hard 
drive, from Workbench, open up the Tutus disk window 


and then drag the Tritus dirawer to whichever destina- 
tion drawer you want it to go in. You will then be able 
to open up the Tritus drawer and double-click on the 
cute icon, it will even quit back to the Workbench. 


Tritus demo 


Author: Davin Pearson 

Workbench 2,04 


So you think you are a hard Tetm player do 
you? Well, as the old saying goes, you ain't 
seen nothing yet. Trrtus is a bit of a turbo 
nutter, fueMnjected Tetris, a power-upped, 
monster-infested, multiplayer, evil addictive 
game. Once you Start you cannot stop. 

Tritus is a simultaneous three-player 
Tetris-style game, but with a twist or two 
and the odd surprise up its sleeve. When 
you lirst start the game and get past the 
initial intro you will see three game areas 
with a press fire message, 

Tritus can have up to three players on at 
once, but do not worry if you have no 



friends, or that no-one is around to play as 
the computer will take control of the remain- 
ing players. If you do play against the 
computer you can cheat and get a few sec- 
onds head start by quickly hitting your fire C Thr*6-pttsye? action 
button - that is if you are the sort of person Tritus 


who does cheat. Once you are off the mark 
the idea of the game is the same as Tetris, 
that by tilling up a ME horizontal Eine you will 
remove it, but in this game doing that adds a 
line to your competitors' areas. If you manage 
to do five lines in one go, the most possible, 
you are congratulated with a screen shudder- 
ing thud and a flash guitar rift. 

It does not stop there. Every now and again 
a little blue greebty will drop down every ones 
screen and Start to eat away at your block 
destroying all the hard work you have done.. 
To stop it just drop a block on its sorry head, 
and watch it go squish with all its bodily fluids 
dribbling down the screen - nnmmmm,. 
Finally, there are other power-ups available 
such as giving your enemies horribly shaped 
blocks tor a short time, or making all their 
blocks invisible.

^h* “ ^ Romans knew it, look at 
all their old roads, dead straight If 
you wanted to go anywhere back then you just 
got into youT two horse powered chariot and 
let her rip down Caesar's Way, doing a cod 
twenty mpk Nowadays, thanks to the 
brilliantly planned road building policy things 
are not quite so easy, in fart I hear a couple of 
universities are thinking about starling up PhDs 
in trip planning. 

For anyone who does not have such a 
degree, AmiAtlas is just what you need. The 
only Other Amiga route planning program I can 
think of is GBroute - that was a bit of a half 
hearted port of the PC program. It is also pretty 
old now and there really is no comparison, 
whatsoever, to AmiAlias. 

AmiAtlas comes on two disks that contain 
the main program and the normal map of 
Germany, As standard you only get the 
German map but a wide selection 
European countries are available, includ- 
ing one for the UK and Ireland. Thi 
may not seem too helpful but if you 
ever venture out to Germany for 
holiday, or for whatever reason, 
this would then be very handy. 

As this is a German product 
the first thing you have to do is 
change the language to English 
from the 'Verse hiedenes 1 or 
Miscellaneous menu. Once 
done, all the menus and win- 
dows will appear in English. The 
program uses the normal locale 
catalogues that were introduced 
with Workbench 11 but it does no 
automatically detect which language 
you are using which is a little strange, 
but once done you do not have to do 
again.

you could have ih*- wrhoi* ul Funpe on moreen 


dfTrtA EJ39 s custom pop up gadget makes

Function icons 

As standard the tool dock that is built into 
AmiAtlas is turned off so you will probably 
want to turn this on as well. This gives you a 
Ipvely scrollable selection of icons at the top of 
the map window. From here most nl 
AmiAtlas's functions are available. 

When you first run AmiAtlas it loads up the 
last map you were using and it is possible to 
set a start location, Therefore, every time it is 
run, AmiAtlas will always be centred or your 
chosen plate. In this case you will be presen- 
ted with a map of Germany. 

When it comes to how you have the maps 
loaded, AmiAtlas is very flexible. As long as you 
have enough memory you can load as many 
maps in as you want It is also very simple to 
add another map to an existing one, and you

I Mohr longs for the wide am 
rolling open road and finds it with 
the route planner, AmiAtlas 


installation of AmiAtlas is through the standard Amiga Installer so no 
problem there, The program and German maps are extracted from the 
first two drsJb into their own drawer arid an assign has to ho made in 
your user^starlup. tf you then want to install my other mops these come 
separately an another disk, are again installed using the Amigo Installer, 
wtorch is copied straight into the AmiAtlas directory into a new drawer , 
each country having a separate drawer 


can merge maps to create a single new map 
file, so removing the hassle of having to load 
multiple maps in the first place. 

Guiding your way around the map is a very 
simple business - you can use the cursor keys 
to scroll around or for larger jumps the propor- 
tional sliders are available. An elastic band 
zoom enables you to get a closer look at which 
ever roads or towns take your fancy, Even on a 
plain Al 200 the map redraws are very quick - 
you will have to start twiddling you thumbs if 
you load both the UK and German maps and 
zoom right out, but then you are being a bit 
silly so it serves you right 

If the screen refresh is not quick enough, 
due to there being too many roads cm towns 
being drawn, there is a comprehensive set of 
drawing tools to allow you to precisely choose 


Road mapping 

AmiAtlas has a fairly straightforward way of 
organising the roads and towns, going from 
minor back roads up to motorways, and from 
capitals to drive through to towns. Using the | 
Map Detail requester you can specify exactly 1 
which roads and towns should be displayed, tt 
is also possible to show motorway cross overs 
and exits. Other details that can be viewed are 
parks, hotels and rivers. Unfortunately, the 


what should or should not be shown on the 
map. From the point of view of drawing the 
land, things like islands and rivers can be 
removed, along with the ability to tell AmiAtlas I 
not to bother colouring in the land and sea - 
this would also be helpful if you are running in 
less tha n 16 colours.

English map that corner with Ami Atlas only 
contains the toad and towns data. Compared 
to the accompanying German map this ts fairly 
sparse,, as the German map has full details on 
hotels you On stay at. Just ask to view the 
hotels and a bunch of little bed symbols will 
appear on the German map. Click on one of 
them and you get a full run down on that 
hotel, including the full address, phone and la* 
numbers,, how much rooms are, what you get 
m the rooms, what other types of functions 
they do, and what credit cards they take - 
pretty extensive t would say. The same goes 
for amusement parks, with Ami At las giving 
you information about how much it is to get in 
and what rides and attractions each park bas- 
il you wanted, it is possible to enter new 
towns and roads, so if new road routes do 
appear you can update the AmiAdas map. This 
process is fairly painless. To add a new town 
y«j just have to dick on the map where the 
new town should be placed. You then, using 
the pop up gadget, select which country and 
county the town should be placed in, along 
with which roads should run into it. The same 
process is used to add new roads - you can 
just pick the start and destination towns, along 
with what the road should be called and 
bow long it is. The new road is then 
added to the map database, 
and will be used in any 
future route calculations 
The main use of 
AmiAtias is to help you

journey. In doing this 
AmiAtias can work out \ 
the fastest, shortest or

you to go. It can also calcu 
late how far and how long it 
is, how much petrol you would X: - .. the chosen route was pretty

would cast von A ■ , the fastest route. Coin-

amounts are calculated from *w ilft * h******** r»rnrs sumption and pricing was 


picked this option, or you can just enter the 
town names Straight into the string gadgets, 

A good feature here is that you can enter 
the start ol the town name. Press return and a 
list of close matching town names pops up, 
allowing you to quickly select one of them. 
AmtAtlas also stores previously used names in 
the pop up gadgets, again allowing you to 
quickly select a regularly used town. You can 
also add stop oK points to your route, in the 
same manner, allowing you to go vis other 
towns. 

Trip calculation is very quick - even 
v --„. fairly complicated ones are 
completed in seconds. You 
then get a breakdown of 
the route with all the 
various road changes, 
how long it takes, how 
_ — n much petrol you use, 

and you can view it on 
the map. When we

AmiAtias. Therefore, depending on what car 
you have you can change the Km/Hr value. 
You also need to set up the correct speed lim- 
its for motorways and dual carriageways - or 
euro roads as AmiAtias refers to them, This rs 
made a little trickier as the speeds are all in 
kilometres. 

When it comes to setting a route, there are 
two ways to enter it Either dick on the start 
and finish location, which means that both the 
start and finish towns have to be in sight ds 
you cannot scroll around once you have 


also about right 

The only real discrepancy was the amount 
ot time the trip would take. The time calcula-

perfect.

and UK maps visible along with any others you 
may add, Unfortunately, you cannot plan routes 
from the UK to Germany as there is no French 
map to fill the gaps in between, and the 
absence of any ferry mutes or a channel tunnel 
route would also make it a little difficult. It 
would be interesting to see if this would be 
possible if you did have the French map, and 
such things like ferry routes were taken into 
account 

The main problems with AmiAtias all come 
about because it is a German product If you 
were German you would not have any com- 
plaints with the program, but English people 
are generally different and can be a little picky 
about things. It is a little annoying that you have 
to tell it that you are working in English, and 
that you also need to state that you want 
money to be worked out in pounds. Fair 
enough - there are at, least, options to allow 
you to change the currency and language, but it 
would be nice if it could do this automatically. 


ARD TO 
FAULT 

Any criticisms I have managed to dig up 
here are rectify very minor - things tike the 
kilometre measurements ate a little annoy- 
ing , but they do not change the fact that 
the program is very useful If you ignore 
these slight niggles, AmiAffds is nearly 
flawless. If the programmer could remove 
the leftover foreign words and allow miles 
instead of Kilometres I would not he able 
to fault it in any way . Currently, the only 
other major problem is that the on-line 
help has not been translated, hut AmiAtias 
is so eosy to use you do not need it

FEBRUARY 1996 














@ ver since mankind first picked up 
a stick or rock and thumped it on 
something else in order to create 
something, we have been fasci- 
nated by building things with our bare hands. 
Our tools were at first primitive; flint replaced 
wood bronze replaced flint, iron replaced 
bronze, but we used them to help us develop 
other useful things such as transport and 
shelter. 

In recent years our cars, aeroplanes and 
buildings have become so complex that we 
use computers to help us make them instead 
of set squares, axes and magnifying glasses, 
and building things has become a more 
abstract process. There are people alive today 
who could build a complex motorcar or an 
office block that have never done so in the 
teal world. 

Computer world 

Their achievements are all based in the virtu- 
al world of the computer. Even films are 
being made on computers with silicon actors 
replacing the real thing. Films like Disney's 
Toy Story or ITV r s ReSoot are paving the way 
forward using the latest technology to build 
their worlds. 

So welcome to the wonderful world of 3D 
according to Cinema4D. Ifs a new package 
of Germain origin on offer from HiSofl 
Systems and is a low-cost competitor to the 
likes of Imagine, Real 3D 3 and Lightwave. 
But before we start comparing features, let's 
have a look at the product Cinema4D comes 
on six disks which have to be installed on a 
minimum of a Workbench 2,04 machine with 
9Mb hard disk space, but Cinema4D definit- 
ely prefers Workbench 3 and takes advantage 
of the AGA chipset to the full. 

If, like me, you have an older ECS 
machine, but you have a graphics card, then 
Cinema4D will happily work on a high reso- 
lution display, but it seems that the current 
version isn't overly keen on chunky pixel 
scree nmodes, so it might be best to fun on a 
planar screen if your RTG software supports 
it 

Usually, the conversion is only run on 



l rank Nor examines the latest 
3D program in depth... cue 


screen with more than a certain number of 
bitplanes, so you might be able to get around 
it that way - the only thing you'll lose is the 
ability to render in a window on the 
Cinema4D screen as the interlace itself only 
relies on a lour colour palette, Other than 
that, unlike current versions of Lightwave and 
Imagine, there are no limitations for graphics 
card owners and considerable advantages, 


the most obvious of which is the increased ; j 
fineness of the vectors used to represent I 
objects on the screen which is a definite help ; 
when your scene is getting cluttered- 

£o let's have a look at the software. Firsl ’ 
impressions are very good, Here's a piece of 
software with a stylish grey interface, sharp 
looking icons in toolbox windows, and a 
main window which tan show several

Cinenta4D has a really good attitude towards the dis- 
play of yoar models , // you are running on a slow 
machine (aren't we all even if we have an '060?^ 
you can change the way your objects get s/sown to 
speed up the display. You can separately alter the 


way active and inactive objects are shown in case 
you wortf full detail while you are editing an object 
(handy, that), bat aren't too bothered by the way it 
boh while you are editing other objects „ Cinema4D 
gives you a range of settings from fully visible to fuliy 


invisible, and will even start to perform automatically 
when your abject database gets too large so that you 
don't end up just getting an out of merrta/y warning 
(your machine crashes ),

different views, ill at once or one at a time. If 
you want to you can run more than one 
main window to give you a number of differ- 
* end views of your scene. To save space, your 
toolbox icons are actually pop-up menus 
which save further space by doubling up 
their functions. This is also a time-saving 
feature and one that comes in very handy. 

Pop-up 

The way it works is that if you select one of 
these pop-up options it works using the 
defaults set into the program, but if you are 
holding down the shift key or using the right 
mouse button to pop up the menu, releasing 
the mouse button over a pop-up menu item 
Mill open a dialogue window to fet you alter 
j the settings the item will use. For instance, if 

t you choose the cube item from the 'Create 

j primitive' pop up menu, Cinema4p will 

chuck out a cube 2 00mm across by default. 
[ However, if you hold down the shift key 

f white selecting the cube, you will be present- 

j ed with a numeric requester in which to put 

j she dimensions of you r object, 

I The same principle applies to menu items 

as well as the pop-ups, although you are 
obviously restricted to using the shift key to 
get to the settings requesters as you are 
already using the right mouse button, to 
open the menus in the first place. However, 
what is odd is the fact that with all this space 
saving, Cinema4D still offers you both a disc 
primitive and a cylinder object, even though 
you could always just extrude the disc. 

The same applies for the cube and redan- 
gle items and it does seem odd that you can 
only enter one dimension for a cube (side 
length). Okay, so a cube is supposed to have 
equal length sides all round, but it would be 
more ergonomic to allow the user to enter 
all the dimensions of the cube to create 
boxes of differing sites more quickly than 
having to scale the cube in different direc- 
tions to create the same effect. 

This is the main problem with Cinema4D 
and it also plagues Imagine (to a greater 
extent ! would say). The way the interface 
works isn't as llu id as it could be, forcing the 
user to use an awkward combination of the 
mouse and keyboard to achieve what she 
needs to. Working with a mouse is great if 


"Welcome to the 
wonderful world of 
Cinema40 - a low-cost 
competitor to the likes 
of imagine, RealJD and 
LightWave" 





you are just starting out with a package - 
some people rely solely on their mouse 
skills, never touching a keyboard shortcut - 
but most people want their work to progress 
as speedily as possible, so therefore want to 
be able to circumvent the sometimes 
lengthy process of moving the mouse to and 
fro to go from the object to the toolbar and 
back to the object and so on, Gnema4D has 
a number of shortcuts, especially for the 
menu items,, but needs a method by which 
you can select the move, scale and rotate 



DEPARTMENT 


Just like Imagine , Cinema4D can add effects to an actor in its 
animation timeline window. This window is very reminiscent 
of Imagined Stage editor but unlike Imagine, its use doesn't 
preclude you from doing anything else. Along with the usual 
and pretty pedestrian explode effect there are mare impres- 
sive ones such as the pulse effect where you con alter the 
shape of d range of objects according to a mathematical 
formula , such as a sine wove. 

Obfecis pulsed in this fashion react in different ways 
according to whether you hove chosen to tnelude sub-objects 
in the wore or not and same pretty interesting resuits can 
develop especially since you can define a pulse for not only 
the s^e of the object but also its position and direction. 

Just like almost every other 3D package t have worked 
with, CinemaAD allows you to morph one object into another , ; 
but again, just like every other 3D package I have used, you 
have to make sure that both objects have exactly the same 
number of points and edges. 

Onema4D also has five other effects that I hove never 
seen in a law-end package anywhere, and they ore Vibration 


ROPS DEPT. 

Cmema4D has so many ancillary fea- 
tures that it becomes hard to find the 
space to mention them all but ones to 
be noted include the separate ray tracer 
which can be run on its own, taking 
advantage of all available memory ( the 
other advantage is that versions of the 
ray tracer could be written to take 
advantage of o co-processor board like 
MacroSystem’s 0£C Alpha hoard or 
Phases's Power Up without the need to 
convert the entire package ). Cinema4D 
also has an object converter that will 
read a wide variety of objects and con 
vert for use in Cmema4D, 



functions more easily than by using the 
mouse. 

But 1 don't want to give you the idea that 
Cinema4D isn't any good. It has some 
absolutely superb methods of working 
including an object hierarchy similar tp that 
used by Real3D, In fact, if you have used 

► 


and Melt Melt does exactly what you might think and is 
actually a bit limited in its uses. You con almost do exactly 
what Melt does by stretching your object vertically down to 
nodring over the course of your animation, while stretching 
if out horizontally to make it look like a puddle is being 
created. 

Having said that it is nice that Cinema4D provtdes an 
option to do this automatically, saving you the l rouble. Of 
course, it doesn’t do any of (he funky things that Dynamotion 
con do like melting yotrr object so that if pours down a funnel 
or splits in two when melted over a knife, but then the only 
machines you can perform these feats on is on SQ r and if 
you've got the money to buy One of those, and Dynamation, 
then you wooT be interested in Gnema4D anyway, 

The tost effect, and one I can think of plenty of uses for, is 
called Vibrate . This randomly jitters the selected object in 
terms of its size, position or rotation over a length of time. The 
effect is completely random and the only parameters you 
have to enter are for maximum extents of the jitter in either 
direction.

Preparing to render i icrrt* In Clnnmn^D, Mole 
the abitity ta toggln individual ren tf&rinq options 


Real 3D (particularly vl.4) and Imagine, you 
swiftly feel at home using Cinema 4D, But 
Cinema4D has features such as the autom- 
atic determination of units and the ability to 
use maths in numeric requesters {if you can't 
be bothered to work out the individual 
lengths of the wells in a non-rectangular 
room this comes in very handy), the back* 
ground grid gets scaled with the display and 
disappears if it gets too small,, unlike 
Imagined and the ability (if you run your 
CinemaAD screen in enough colours) to be 
able to render in a window on the 
Cinema4D screen is also a nice touch, 

On the minus side, Cinema4D won't work 
with Postscript fonts (just like old versions of 
RealJO, fonts have to be built by hand and are 
all separate objects. You are supplied with two 
- Helvetica and Diamond - which both look 
pretty similar) and has no algorithmic tenures 
at all, so anything other than solid colours has 
to be scanned, grabbed or hand-painted,

CENERY 
DEPT. 

As a test ! tried to build a pretty him pie scene 
in Cinema4D and compared the time it took 
to the some scene built in Lightwave, I con- 
structed a simple table and a milking stool 
using primitives and boolean operations. I 
surfaced the objects and rendered the scene 
at a low resolution. From start to finish it look 
me over an hour in Cinema4D r but it has to 
be said that I am not as familiar with the 
package os t am with Lightwave, 

The same scene in Lightwave took me 
about half an hour to complete (without the 
human model), but the important thing was 
that even if it had taken me the some time, it 
would have been easier because of the way 
ErghfiVave is put together. Waving said that, I 
also tried the same scene in Imagine 3 and it 
took me the same amount of time as 
Ctnema4D , hut it felt harder to create the 
scene and t am familiar with Imagine. 




HERE ARE MY ACTORS 


CinemaAD has an inverse Ainenrafics system built in and very handily comes with a 
mannequin object ready to roll at the dick of a button. The IK system that comes with 
Cinemo4D doesn't have any form of constraints that would be required to stop year elbow 
bending backwards, but that notwithstanding is actually damn easy to use and, apart from 
the odd hand pointing the wrong way, is pretty accurate. Although this doesn't make 
character animation into something as simple as a simple thing, it certainly beats 
manually positioning limbs hands down and is sa much faster that you'll probably end up 
using it all the bloody time. 


erfy is superb and gives absolute control over 
texturing. The way it works is that you edit a 
grid which overlays your object which is subject 
to all the same tools as the objects themselves, 
sudh as rotate, move and scale, 

The type of grid that appears depends cm 
the type of texture wrap you have chosen - 
choose a planar map and you just get a flat 
squarish grid, hut choose cylindrical or spheri- 
cal mapping and you end up with a full or pat*

v 1 9t95 was not the kindest of years 

for Amiga stalwarts Softwood. 

B While the return of the Amiga to 
production was good news for 
any company in the market the absence of 
any of Softwood's software from Amiga 
Technologies' Magic Pack must have been a 
worrying issue tor the makers of such well 
known programs as Final Writer. 

Worse still, arch- rivals Digita International 
had a virtual monopoly on the contents of 
the pack as far as the serious applications 
were concerned. While the bundle represen- 
ted a reasonably good deal for the consumer, 
it must have made rivals wonder if continued 
development of their products were worth- 
while, After all, how many new Amiga own- 
ers are going to buy something like Final 
Writer if they already have a wordpnocessor 
Supplied for free 1 

Nevertheless, Final Cate has now been 
released after four years of development, and 
the initial comparison with the Magic Rack's 
Turbo Calc looks favourable, The question is, 
however, does it offer enough that's new to 
win a large user base of its own? 

Interface 

To begin with that all important interface, 
Final Calc doesn't look quite so polished as 
PC industry standards like Excel and Lotus 
1-2-3, but essentially the introduction of tool 
baFS and drag and drop data manipulation 
follows their example in creating a user- 
friendly environment. As you'd expect from 
any professional Amiga program, you can 
control many functions in a variety of ways, 
from using drop down menus to keyboard 
short cuts, 

Important for the beginner is Final Calc's 
on-line help facility. Whenever you select a 
command Irom a menu it will usually give 
you an explanatory option from an 
AmigaGuide, What's more, the instructions to 
be found are more helpful than the token aid 
you get from too many Amiga on-line help 
guides. Remember also that Softwood have a 
help forum in which you can get technical 
advice on CompuServe, Equally valuable for a 

INAL 
DEMAND 

it has to be sard fftef the price probably 
predudes mast casual Amiga users look - 
mg (or something cheap to keep track a( 
their personal finances. It's also a tad that 
this is Softwood's most demanding prod- 
uct os far as your Amiga's specification is 
concerned as welt 

Though Final Data will work with 2Mb 
of RAM, they freely admit that to get a 
respectable level of functionality out of it 
you realty need at least Jtyt h. Not surpris- 
ingly, you'll oho need a hard drive with 
5Mb of free space since you cant run it 
off floppy, AmigaGuide and ARexx 
libraries are dsn highly recommended. 

Though the requirements are fairly 
high, however, it's probably worth it hr 
someone who really needs a more profes- 
sional spreadsheet to work or? or home. 






In Final Calc Softwood think they've 
created the spreadsheet program to beat 
them all. Gareth Lofthouse reviews 


technically daunting program like a 
Spreadsheet, Final Calc's good quality docu- 
mentation makes it worth a few extra bob in 
itself, A Ring-binder containing extensive 
chapters on every detail of the program you 
could possibly want to know about realty sets 
an example for Amiga products we can only 
hope is followed- elsewhere. The only flaw in 
my view is the a b sense of a step-by-step 
tutorial, something that makes getting into 
the program that bit more difficult. 

Fortunately, behind the glossy exterior you 
will find a number crunching program of 
immense power and flexibility. There's a 
comprehensive array of editing functions 
you'd expect - for example the ability to edit 
formulas and paste filenames, date strings. 


Graphs can 6# g«nertr*d in 3D MUfti

print without jagged mdgat 


time formats, and cell ranges. There's dsn 
an amazing 1 7a maths functions with! 
comparison and logical operators, 

Final Calc uses a 'Recalc System' to calcu- 
late the value of formulas in each project 
Basically, the Recalc scans through the pro- 
ject looking for formulas that need solving 
evaluating the value of the formula in each 
cell, and then storing the result back into 
each cell. In final Calc this all occurs auto- 

Grabs th ai 

Final Calc probably has the edge over any 
rival in terms of manipulative power , fiut 
its primary selling paint is more likely 
to be its superiority in terms of data 
presentation. 

There is on extensive variety of graphs 
to chose from, allowing data to be pre- 
sented in numerous different ways - for 
example, there's stacked bar graphs, pie 
charts and X-Y-Z scatters. These ore pre- 
sented in ZD by default, but each of them 
can instantly be transformed into a metre 
visually impressive ID model at the diet 
of a button , 

Generating a graph from a range of 
data really is very easy, but customising ft 
to your requirements is more of a prob- 
lem, It's possible to include titles , legends 
and notes around the visual data, but

mafically in the background and you can con- 
tinue to work while it's happening - unless 
you prefer to recalculate manually, that is. 

If you make a mess of the accounts, how- 
ever, Softwood's program has a distinct 
advantage in its unlimited undo function. 
Final Cate keeps track of all the changes you 
make to a project's data, and allows you to 
undo any changes made up to the first 
change since you loaded or started the pro- 
ject Even better, if you mistakenly undo ore 
ol your changes you can then redo it under 
the same principal 

Smart PRESENtAfioN 

As you will have gathered if you've read the 
section on the program's graph generating 
capabilities, Final Calc is heavily geared 
towards the smart presentation of data, With 
this in mind 'Outline Fonts' are used when 
printing in order to achieve a better quality of 
print from the printer. It supports Postscript 
Type I and 3 files and Macintosh ATM font 
files as well as Softwood font files, 

Final Calc will also prove valuable for those 
using industry standard lotus 1-2-3.wkl 
spreadsheet files at work, and who occasion- 
ally want to work on them on their Amiga at 
home, since the program supports this type 
of file. 

More common but equally important for 
this type of program is the ability to imple- 
ment Macros that will automate a series of 
operations, with obvious benefits on your

productivity as a consequence. The toolkit is 
also a standard but necessary component of 
the spreadsheet, allowing users to import 
and export text and perform search and 
replace operations. A further strength is Final 
Calc's ability to treat data in a project range 
as a database.

bat again it seems like a surprisingly cam - 
pier process. 0/ course, reading the manual 
properly overcomes this, but it’s less user 
friendly in this particular respect than I had 
hoped for. 

Still thtre r s no doubt that spreadsheets 
on the Amiga have never looked so good 
before, and this is important if you're in the 
business of illustrating conclusions about o 
set of data. 

Another breakthrough is Final Calc's 
ability to animate graphs so that changes 
through time can be displayed. This is 
undertaken using the Edit Animation win- 
dow, and once again its nof exactly child's 
play , so that ring-bound manual will again

prove handy. Printing the graphs is pretty 
quick though because of its print spooler 
which will work on jobs in the background 
while you continue with your wort.

Verdict 

So how does it shape up against the competi- 
tion? Well the good news i's fhpf Final Calc 
outclasses any other Amiga spreadsheet in 
many respects. Its range of mathematical 
formulas should be sufficient even for full-time 
accountants, and unlimited undo/redo func- 
tions and online help are the sort of functions 
dial make daunting programs more tolerable 
in use. 

Of course , Final Cak particularly shines 
because of its presentation tools. This is not 
just a superficial benefit either, since a range 
of graphs give users valuable choices over 
how they present their raw data. Htfrether onr- 
matr'on will be worthwhile for many users or 
merely a gimmick is unclear, hut rfs worth 
giving people the option to experiment 

There are numerous other plus points too , 
like the program's support for Lotus l-2-3,wk I 
files. However, though the program can import 
ASQi files from Final Data, they've foiled to fol- 
low Lotus's example and push Cak as part of 
an overall Amiga suite For years it's been pos- 
sible to generate a graph in Lotus 1-2-3 and 
then easily incorporate it into an AmiPro word 
processor document, so it would make sense 
for Softwood 1 to advocate o similar use of Final 
Calc and Final Writer. 

Generally, / think more work needs to go 
into making Final Calc a more instinctive., easy 
program to use, though no number of pretty 
icons are going to make a spreadsheet the 
easiest type of software to get to grips with. 
The online help is a good start and the manu- 
al is excellent, but some functions still seem 
unnecessarily complicated. 

Then of course there’s the matter of price. 
Final Cak isn't cheap, but then ft offers a level 
of professionalism that justifies rt The Amiga 
deserves a spreadsheet package for the more 
serious user, and this is certainly a good step 
in the right direction.

he Train pulls- in to Halifax station. 
The walls are elaborately decora- 
ted with garish paintings and the 
word 'Eureka 1 is splashed every- 


where. A noisy troop of school kids leave the 
Esrair and rush down a sandy track towards an 
equally garish building. The venue tor the day 
was the Eureka museum in Halifax, Yorkshire, 
but immediately things seemed very strange - 
the many children all damounng to get in the 
doors all looked unusually excited about the 
prospect of spending the morning in a 
museum. 

However, Eureka, as I later found out, is no 
ordinary museum - it's interactive and is 
specifically designed for even the most inquisi- 
tive of children who want to touch, explore or 
even kick the exhibits. As Pippa Hardcastle, 
Press and PR Coordinator for the muse- 
um told me: "The children have the 
opportunity for a 'hands on J experi- 
ence. IE makes the learning process 
so much easier" 

The museum is divided into 
three sections and every one of the 
350 exhibits has to be as robust 
and sturdy as possible - children 
will be children after all. The first is * 

Me and My Body where you can .• 
play Digestion Pinball or turn the 
pedals to see how your skeleton 
works, The second is Invent, Create 
and Communicate where children can 
try their hand at broadcasting the news | 
and lastly, Living and Working Together I 
where, for instance, the workings ol a bath- 
room are explained- There is also a fourth' in 
development called Things. 


Appearances 


But what on earth has this got to do with the 
Amiga? you are probably wondering. Well 
believe it or not behind some of the high-tech 
exhibits and interactive displays is actually a 
rather humble looking Amiga. Weil, two 
Amigas to be precise. But appearances can be 
deceptive because despite the Amiga being 
swamped by the many other forms of techno- 
logical machinery that control the museum, the 
Amigas operate two of the most imaginative 
displays there. 

Walk into the Bedroom section of Living and 
Working Together and you will find a display 
called Dreams, and in front of you a monitor, 
The inquisitive child will find that when they 
face the screen their image is picked up and 
projected onto the it - much to their delight! 
Three backgrounds then run together in 
sequence, one being balloons, the next fish, 
and. then a 'raining cats and dogs' storm, The 
camera picks up the child's image, digitises it, 
and the Amiga 5000 puts the whole picture 
together. On the balloons screen, for 
pie, the child can then move their 


EXT GEN KIDS 


Pippa Hardcastle remarked whilst shotting 
me around the museum, that the children 
seemed to pick up on new technology far 
easier than their bewildered looking parents, 
As she spoke we sow one child take a mouse 
off their embarrassed iechnophobic parent 
and immediately continue operating the 
display. 

Eureka believe it is important to reinforce

how a museum for children is

arms to 'touch' the balloons that are flying past, 
and the computer system picks up on this and 
pops the balloon. 

This innovative system is called InVideo and 
has been developed by American '70's singer 
supremo, Dean Friedman. After reaching the 
dizzy heights of pap stardom, Friedman turned 
his hand to multimedia and tailor-made the

increasing children's confidence with 
Information Technology. It will house 22

system specifically for Eureka. The project has 
been extremely successful and has taken off all

InVideo's Meal Fink explained the idea 
behind it: u \ts a virtual reality system without 


NVIDEO AR0i| 


After Friedman's success wtfr toe InVideo sys- 1 
tern at Eureka, the project has been developed i 
for many other venues and other purposes. I 
The company behind it atl is called InVideo I 
Systems., Inc and they describe their system asl 
an " unencumbered virtual reality system I 
which allows participants to step inside a tided 1 
game and interact in real-time wkh animated 1 
objects," 

As well as 'Dreams 1 they have also found I 
toe system perfect for Virtual Volleyball' which I 
has been i installed in the Museum of Science I 
in Boston amongst others. It simulates the j 
actual game of volleyball an a beach and 
eight players can have a go at this realistic j

peripherals or gobies" Apparently this proves 
deal m a what needs to be a 'child proof' 
Tiyseum as there are no extra peripherals or 
attachments for a child to damage. It also 
Takes interacting as simple and fuss-free as 
possible. 

The Amiga-based Int/iden system can also 
be found downstairs in the Panasonic Theatre, 
fta king in to the theatre you find a huge 
screen in front of you with all manner of weird 
and colourful things cast on to it from a video 
pnsfector. This time it's controlled by an A3000 
md once again the inVtdeo system comes into 
ft awn. A camera picks up the rmage of the 
chi i and projects it hack in full colour - unlike 
the Dreams exhibit which is in one colour. One 
ooercise involves letters of the alphabet mgv 
mg around the screen - the child can reach 
out, touch ft, and it will turn into an object 
spinning with that letter - B, for example, 
Imre into a butterfly. "This is great for children 
wfih disabilities" explains Hard castle. "ft gives 
them a chance to interact with something eas- 
A similar sort of thing can be done with 
numbers too, and helps the younger age 
goup with number recognition and learning. 

Another exercise is called AirPaint which is 
ike a human paintbox and allows the child to 
pick up colours from a palette and draw them 
across the screen with their body. 

Jim Williamson is the museum's technical 
manager and is very pleased with how well 
il’e Amiga system works: "It we were consider- 
using virtual reality again we would defi- 
nitely use the Amiga, It's a good reliable

machine and suits the task well:' 

Not related to die Amiga, but also created 
by Friedman, is the Music Box, Children can 
create tunes with different parts of the body 
such as walking across the musical stepping 
stones or sitting on each stool which then lets 
out a honk from one of the giant horns. 
Walking around, you realise just how well 
designed Eureka is. Each section is geared to 
the National Curriculum and because of the 
variety, each age and ability seams to be 
catered far. 

Award winning 

Eureka are certainly on to a winning formula 
with their lively approach to learning. Since rt 
opened in July 1992, it has attracted over one 
million visitors and they hope to have this fig- 
ure topping 1.5 million before Easter, 
Patronised by HRH The Prince of Wales, the 
museum has earned itself 15 top awards 
including the 1993 Visitor Attraction of the 
Year from the English Tourist Board. In 1994 
they also- won the National Heritage/IBM 
Museum of the Year award for the most imag- 
inative use of interactive and multimedia tech- 
nology. It seems that this new breed of muse- 
um is certainly in demand and people are 
favouring them in place of the dusty museums 
of the past where noise was frowned upon 
and touching the exhibits was definitely out of 
order, 

If you want to see Eureka for yourself it can 
be found in Halifax, West Yorkshire and is situ- 
ated next to the railway station, It is open daily 
from 10am until 5 pm. Prices range from £4,50 
for an adult to £3,50 for children aged 3 to 1 2,

ELIEVER IN AMIGA 

The Eureka museum in Halifax is not the only museum to see the virtues 
of an Amiga-based system, The London Transport Museum in Covent 
Garden is already reaping the benefits using an Amiga and CD32-based 
system. The CD32s provide touch screen computers which display 
various information such as the Underground hypermap. But what's par- 
ticularly impressive is the 1938 Underground train simulator. The front 
window of the train has been replaced with a computer screen with 
graphics controlled by the Amiga 4000, Two other simulators of an 1890 
and 1992 models are controlled by A20Q0s. 

A fore recertify, Amiga Computing covered how the London War 
Museum use a similar touch screen system in their building. Scala's 
Infochannel is used to convey information about the exhibits on to 
screens around fee museum. There is also a Scab touch screen display 
used for their Civilian Dead 1 exhibit.

The name's Vost, Ben Vost, 

and I'm on the track of the 

new lames Bond film 









ames Bond is a name that few 
dreaders of Arru-yo Computing will 
be unfamiliar with. Since his very 
first exploits under the pen of Fan 
■fleming up to his latest adventures on the 
| H screen courtesy of Pierce Brosnan, his 
spiret agent lifestyle and fabulous gadgets 
rave been the envy of many a fan, Peopfe 
discuss their favourite prop - mine is the 
|as|i_’i Martin that first made an appearance 
I n Goldfinger and reappears for a short time 
I i Goldeneye - their favourite baddie - 
ifiirh far me would defi- 
itefy have to be 


ro 


Oiarlgs Gray's Blofdd - 
ind many other topics 
make the years 
rtween the films 
leem a little shorter. 

So 1995 was the 
war that Bond was 
Kk and this time with 
i smaller budget than 
M?f. Instead of traips- 
^ off all over the world, most 
qI Bond's derring do took 
face cm soundstages and 
fl location around Britain, 
fcme on an even smaller scale than that, as 
Kfines like the radar dish rising out of the 
Hfter were 90 per cent modelled (not in 30 
grass, trees and other vegetation are very 
art to get looking realistic and the waves 
cm the lake are practically impossible to 
ke in 3D). All that existed in real life was 
the path that 
I Pierce Brosnan 




and Izabella Scorupco were walking along, 
The same principle applies to the scene 
where Scorupco climbs out of the ruined 
radar tower in Siberia and wanders through 
the burning ruins, Only the path she took 
was actually real, with the remainder being 
created in model shops by extremely skilled 
craftsmen. And it is in Siberia that the 
Amiga's main contribution was made to the 
realistic and cheap completion of the film. 
Even with the disbanding of the Soviet Union 
and the availability of Russian airforce jets to 
perform the flying, 
how much do you 
think it would have 
cost the producers of 
Goldeneye to rent 
three MiC-29's (plus 
another to film from) 
for the flight past the 
radar tower, let alone 
the cost of blowing 
them up? 

Well, | don't know 
either, but it was obviou- 
sly too much for the produc- 
ers who approached Alan Marques 
and the Magic Camera Company to 
see if they could do it cheaper. You might 
remember Alan Marques from a feature we 
did last year about the use of the Amiga in 
another film - Cybertack - and he and the 
Amiga have been very busy ever since. I 
caught up with him last 
Friday and spoke to 
him: . 

"One of the 
reasons why 


"One of the reasons why 
we used the Amiga on 
Goldeneye, or rather 
Lightwave, is because we 
had used it on CyberJacL 
We knew it as a very , very 
good rendered' 


U Man Marque* burned the

o The poner behind Lightwave, this Raptor 
wtts responsible tor rendering the MC frames 


Amiga on Goldeneye, or rather LightWave, as 
because we had used it on Cyberjack. We 
knew it as a very, very good Tenderer. We 
were still using Wavefront as our core system 
for some of Goldeneye, but the Wavefront 
Tenderer isn't very good. It doesn't do motion 
blur Of anything like that So we had to have 
a system that does all that There were these 
shots in Goldeneye where they wanted the 
MtG-29s coming from infinity - a pinpoint - 
and moving towards the camera, roaring 
over it. We have a motion control rig on M 
stage which we used for a lot of the shots in 
Goldeneye, but when you have a 2‘ minia- 
ture of a MiG-29 and you have a 49' motion 
control track, you can't get the model to a 
pinpoint, you can get it to about an eighth of 
a frame, but you just can't get ft any smaller., 
"So, if you're stuck in that position, the 
only thing you can do with the motion con- 
trol rig is pick the model up as a DUE - digi- 
tal vide® effect - f.e. stop the model at a cer- 
tain point, pick it up as a cut-out, then fly the 
cut-out off, You probably know, though, that 
when you do that there is that nasty point

when you have to change over and invariably 
you'll always get a jump when that happens. 
So we elected, because we knew the shots 
were high speed and we knew that there 
was going to be a lot of blur, to do the shots 
as a CG effect. 

"So basically, what we did was get a 
model of an F-15 qff the Internet, a really 
cheap and nasty 4GQ polygon model, and did 
some tests with it at video resolution. We got 
a load of background stills of deserts and 
mountains and Evan (Davies - one of Alan's 
team) did some nice texture maps for this 
400 polygon model which was very simple - 
the hull was literally only eight sides.. We did 
the textures for it including the cockpit, etc, 
and the whole tests were done in one day. 

Dawn to dusk 

We got the model in the morning, did the 
texture maps the same morning, and did the 
three animations in the afternoon at video 
resolution cm the backgrounds in Lightwave, 
We did the renders of the three of them fly- 
ing over the camera, rendered them all On 
the Raptor by five in the evening, and sent a 
tape up to Leavesden by the next morning 
and they instantly said, 'Right, do the shots

I asked Alan if he could have done the 
shots on an SGI and he said that it certainly 
was possible - if you had die right software, 


software he didn't have at the time. He also 
added that in his opinion, Lightwave is one 
of the fastest Tenderers in the world for 
motion blur, ray tracing and so on, 

"So we used Lightwave with the F-lSs. At 
video resolution with three F-ISs, 4G0 polys 
each, full motion blur, fully ray traced shad- 
ows and reflections we were getting about a 
minute a frame on the Raptor, When they 
approved the shots they said they had three 
effects for us to do and they ended up using 
two of the shots we provided - the third was 


"The biggest problem we 
had, and the real killer 
because NewTek wouldn 't 
give me a beta copy of 
Lightwave 4, was the lack 
of a pixel aspect ratio 
setting for Lightwave" 


Qightwave's missing bits 



Since we were on the topic of Lightwave, t asked Alan 
what he thought of Lightwave compared to the other 3D 
modelling packages he uses, particularly those on the SCI. 
On the whole, Alan is satisfied with how Lightwave is 
turning out but he said for film production there were 
definitely same things that needed improvement: 


m At die moment Lightwave con only display a single one 
bitphne image os a background image. What Lightwave 
really needs is a way to show an animation as a backdrop 
so that 3D objects moving across it can be checked for 
consistency. 

# Although it is good that Lightwave has now got on 
inverse kinematics function , it needs to hove Severn/ 
improvements mode to it namely the ability to r stick ‘ part 
of an object to another object like a foot to the floor or a 
hand to a cup , to make it really useful. 

# Another important addition to Lightwave s animation 
tools would be the possibility to animate a switch between 
targets or parent objects so toot you could aim a gun at 
one object then move toe sights onto another in the course 
of an animation. 


0 Still on toe topic of animation tools , toe way motion 
paths are edited in the requester toaves something to be 
desired. A Beiier method with handles on the control 
points would make more sense. 

• One of imagine' s tools that LightWave could benefit 
from is the ability to 'associate' objects to one another. For 
instance , a rollercoaster animation with several cordages 
can be animated travelling along the rails in Imagine rea- 
sonably easily, with each carriage following on from the 
one in front, but in Lightwave you would hove to load the 
same motion path in for each carriage and work out an 
offset for each key frame. 

Overall, Alan believes Lightwave's modeller to be pretty 
good but adds that there really ought to be o function that 
is the opposite of metaform - an intelligent polygon This 
would have mode the process of simplifying the Viewpoint 
MiG-29 down from the 10,000-odd polygons it started as 
into the 533 polygon object it became. As ft wa$ r the origi- 
nal model had to be loaded into □ background layer in the 
modeller and traced over - in essence toe Magic Camera 
Company ended up making a whole new model. 


a big close-up, very nice but they didn't us 
it 

"Basically, we had the three MiGs ffyinj 
over the dish and another shot where thi 
were flying over mountains. We had to get 4 
Viewpoint model at that point because we 
had to have a proper MiG-29 and nobot 
had a MiG-29 on the Internet that was ar 
use, so we bought Viewpoint's model ft! 
about £250, Of course, Viewpoint in thi 
country don't have the lightwave CD-RC,' 
they only have the Wavefront and other 't 
boys' ones, but the nice thing was that tt 
said it was no problem. We phoned them up 
and gave them a purchase order and th< 
just e-mailed it us the next day from Amer 
in Lightwave format, uuencoded, in 
binmail on CIX- 

"So we downloaded it, uudecoded it and 
edited it. Being a Viewpoint model, one 
the things we discovered with it, which 
wouldn't think would happen, is that we hi 
a lot of rendering problems with it - we 
couldn't Figure out why, when the models .

ft ~tNui fully textured 

bricks , they weren't going down to fine 
detail -and guess what, it's ton verted from 
another format. There were a lot of single 
P&int polygons in it which, once we had 
searched the database 
and sorted it out, 
raiised us no further 
?roblems- 

4 So we solved that 
one, got some nice textile 
maps on them,, and animat- 
ed them in Lightwave over 
the background plate, match 
mg the lighting to the- back- 
ground frame we had. On the 
fiiptor Plus we've got, which is a 
2 .sc MIPS4600 machine,, we were 
rendering the three MiG-29s at 
■flout 500 polygons each for a total 
of 1500 polys - not much, but then 
we were using full-on motion blur, 
dv traced shadows and refEec- 
‘ions and we were getting 
about six minutes a frame 
Nhich was very good at 1 k 
horizontal. 

This was the same trick we 
pulled on CyberJack, We never render 
at the resolution of a film because 
every lime we do that the CGI is too 
iiarp, ft just doesn't even remotely 
J ir into the background. You 
end up blurring 
r h e 


image to go into the back- 
ground using filters which 
take time to do the work. So 
we do it at half resolution and 
blow it up. 

"The biggest problem we 
had, and the real killer because 
NewTek wouldn't give me a beta 
copy of Lightwave 4, was the lack 
of a pixel aspect ratio setting for 
Lightwave. It's now in version 4, but it 
wasn't in 3.5. If you're doing an 
anamorphic film you need to have a 
squeezed image. Therefore, you need to be 
able to render an image at, say, Ik x 660 but 
at a pixel aspect ratio that will make the 
image deliberately squashed so that it would 
be right for anamorphic when it's stretched 
out 

“We couldn't do that in the version of 
Lightwave we had, so we had to do the 
most bizarre renders in Lightwave to get 
anamorphic results. We had to render twice 
the height, then crop it and cut it out, and 
then stretch it to get an anamorphic result It 
was very hard, 
and NewTek

PURCHASER? 


WHAT IS ESCOM THINKING??!! Not enough 
interest in an A120Q hem in North America? 

Those of us with older machines have been 
salivating for the East 20 months over the possi- 
bility ol upgrading. 1 sit here typing this on my 
maxed out A600 (6Mb RAM, 160Mb hard 
drive) angered at every ad in your magazine 
because of the lad of support for this poor 
orphan (can't even get an accelerator), frustra- 
ted by toa-flow- Brilliance with only 4096 
colours and DREAMING of an A 1 200 with a 
1260 Blizzard board, a CD drive and 16 million

didn 't think we ought to print j % you ibioty, just 
in ease - £S) - forward it to Escom and tell 
them to bill me when they have my order 
ready! 

Would a monitor (I run in interlaced Euro36 
mode not NTSC) allow me to use one of (he 
new PAL A12G0s or are there other subtler dif- 
ferences that would prevent me from ordering 
one from the UK? 

And one completely unrelated thought. Your 
screen shots in the mag shouldn't show 
screens with the standard Amiga drawers and 
icons - they're ugly. For those of us with IBM 
and Mac friends that glance through our mag, it 
makes the Amiga look out of date. 

Finally, thanks for the lifeline to us in the US.

If Amiga Technologies want Mr McMahon's 
credit card number, they can give me a call 
and 111 be glad to forward it to them. As for 
your monitor question, the PAL Amigas

differ from the NTSC ones in only a few 
respects. Firstly, the UK Amiga* are all 
shipped with a WQv transformer for power. 
Secondly, you would need to change the 
modulator and a timing chip If you wanted 
to use your Amiga at any time with video 
(including genlocks). Other than that if you 
got one of the new multi scan monitors, it 
should work alright 

As for ugly drawers and kons> we have a

What's happened to the support for the Amiga comms 
scene? I can appreciate that the Internet is a massive suc- 
cess but there is the large number of BBS sites out there 
that yon seem to have forgotten. Almost all of the public 
domain sector software that gets reviewed in your maga- 
zine has originated from various BBS sites, not on the 
Internet Granted, some new stuff does come from the 
Internet, but the majority of it originates from the private 
BBS scene, I know as over the last two years NFA 
PD/Productions have had over one hundred reviews in 
various magazines. 

When you call a private BBS, the sysop has control over 
what files are available. The Internet is running wild with 
pornography, piracy, and files on how to blow your arms 
off. Once a file is on the Internet it is almost impossible to 
delete as the file goes to hundreds of sites within a few 
days, A private system is also generally used by only two 
or three people at a time, so the system doesn't slow 
down to a snail's pace on a Sunday. However, this does 
restrict the number of users that can connect in a 24-hour 
period, but to compensate for this there are hundreds of 
private systems around the world including many eastern 
bloc countries. 

As lar as e-mail goes, the Internet wins hands down. 
However, there are some really good mail networks that 
connect thousands of users across Europe like the Missing 
Link and Fidonet to name but two. Most private BBSs will 
support at least one of these networks. 

We should like to see a small area of your magazine 
given over to advertise BBS sites because we fee! very 


ignored by you and we do reach many hundreds of dedi- 
cated Amiga users every day. We organise meetings of 
usees and stands at computer fai rs, so we do do our bit for 
the Amiga scene. 

A point worth mentioning to parents who may be read’ 
ing these pages is that you shouldn't Just buy your child a 
modem and give them an hour a day on the phone. Sit 
with them and monitor what they are doing as there are 
some very strange people out there (people who worT'f 
use their real names for instance - ES). Give them some 
of your time - even if you don't fully understand what 
your child is doing you will recognise titles like 
'fandynufse.jpg 1 , etc. 

Well that's enough moaning. I would now like to be 
blunt and ask for a plug for our UK bulletin boards. All the 
latest issues of The Word are available and people may 
wish to upload their articles, etc if they wish them to be 
Induded. All these sites are open from 8PM-8AM and are 
mail linked. 

All speeds of modem may connect to our sites from 
300 baud up as we believe a lot of people buy cheap 
modems for a start, and H they enjoy what they see a 
faster modem normally follows. We are doing our best to 


provide a good service to our users and most of us hav 
invested in high-powered machines and large storage 
devices. We leave them running throughout the night Ic 
other people to use. All we are asking is for a little support | 
from the magazines we b-uy every month. 

Deck the Ripper, NFA , 

Id Just like to say that I don't like people using pseu- 
donyms when writing in to me at Amiga Computing, It 
certainty dumped your chances of receiving the £50 
prize for best letter this month (who would we make it 
payable to?) H but anyway, you do have several 
good points about BBSs providing more of a sense of 
community than the Internet currently does. Thi 
Internet is also still a lot harder to connect to than a 
BBS, but by the same count it does offer an awful let 
more. 

As for your decrying the net for the smut, piracy and 
bomb-making files available on it I think you are being 
a little hypocritical as the vast majority of these files all 
originated on BBSs. Still, we want to help support any 
use of Amigas and if you are feeling a little left out, It's 
mainly because we harae to cover what's hut

S ! y5 :J at g0od ^' ngS “ nt CQme irom bad onK - With Amiga World's demise I am now 
blessed with your publication and I believe you are 'hlumero Uno'. 

! share 0 Mcholson's concerns in his letter in issue A (English readers wilt have Mr 
Nicholson 5 tetter m the November issue - E5), As an Aim owner r have seen very Htde A3O0O 
improvements available in the market (I guess Commodore got it right with this design). To go 
straight to the point, perhaps thrs time Amiga Technologies' engineers could be challenged to 
design a motherboard for the next generation of Amigas that would have a processor slot 
where the CPU would reside and would be easily upgraded but, more importantly, two video 

■slots where one would be populated by the video display co-processor* and video custom 
chips on a daughterboard. 

Perhaps thrs would solve the dreaded occasions when an improved video chipset hits the 
market and loyal users were forced to keep up and upgrade, or stagnate with their old Amigas 
Perhaps Escom could even gam by manufacturing these video processors and making them 
3 j fi ro L 0,h * r wdM b ^ rd manufacturers (maybe they will even make their way into PCs 
and Macs thus gaming greater exposure in the market^. Make the Amiga into an open system 
l don t want to put down AGA-equipped Amigas but releasing software solely for these units 
actually leaves the rest of the Amiga owners out of the picture. Maybe software libraries and drr- 
vers should be produced by Amiga Technologies and provided to Amiga software developers. 
These patches would allow software to take advantage of the AGA chipset but also third-party 
video boards. Let s face it, many Amiga owners are not going to get rid of their units just to get 
AGA machines. They want to add peripherals (CD-ROMs, ZIP drives, etc.) they can share with 
another computer, while they wan for the next RISC-based Amigas to hit the market 

I sincerely wish the very best to Escom and their Amiga Technologies division. In order to 
maintain the loyalty of Amiga fans, Escom must show a dedication to continuously improve and 
aggressively advertise and market Amigas. And Its up to the users to spread the word. 

Jose A Ferreira, Kingshnd Ca USA 

Obviously, in the computer world H is a cm „f ^ or die . commodore released some 
fine machines and the UOOO was the best nf them, hut that was five years ago now and it 
is time to get with the plan. However, as you say, it would be better (or you to wait for the 

new Power Amiga rather than spending money on a machine that will be obsolete in about 
1 2 month s time. 


Amiga Technologies face a difficult fas k over the coming year in persuading people that 
buying an Amiga actually makes sense. In order to overcome potential purchasers' worries 
about the lack of compatibility the Amiga has with other platforms, I think we will see a 
move to a more standardised machine, possibly without the custom graphics chipset that 
we have become used to, opening the way for third-party graphics cards to take over the

The magazine had a serial number in it

Final Copy and Word worth, yet I cannot 
transfer files between them and my PC at

that in my business, I wouldn't make any

The computing industry is probably the 
only one where standards are created by 
competing companies which can be used 
industry-wide for better all-round perfor- 
mance, but Amiga software houses seem to 
ignore all of it 

R A Bryant, Shepstow 

\ quite agree. The lack of observation 
means that companies end up reinventing 
everything from scratch each time without 
paying attention to what other people 
are doing, meaning the Amiga loses 
out on some handy features like PNG 
or support for word processor fife 
formats.

Qrouble with a PS 


I have been an Amiga user far nearly 
five years, using an A500, Having 
seen all the really good programs 
that you give away on your cover 
disks, I am now getting an AT 200 as I 
feel I am missing out all the time, I have two 
questions I hope you can help me out with. 

Firstly, where can I buy a PSU plug that 
goes into the Amiga? I have asked all the 
shops in Hull, but keep being told that you 
cannot buy them. I would like to make my 
own workstation, but I need the plug for the 
PC PSU. 

My other question is, if 1 buy an Apollo 
1220 Iof the A 1200, can it be turned off by 
some sort of command? I have been 
informed that some games run too last with 
the accelerator in the trap door. 

Peter Grainger, Hail 


* 


You want to make your own 

power sup ply unit? I person^ 

ally wouldn't recommend it, 
unless you ace ioo per cent 
sure as to what you are doing. There is 
always the risk that you are going to fry 
your Amiga, and normally there is not too 
much need for a more powerful PSU. 

It is, however, possible to do and there 
are a number of files on Aminet that 
explain how to convert a PC power Supply 
for use with an Amiga. The most impor- 
tant thing is, you must make sure you get 
all the power connections correct other- 
wise you will be the proud owner of one 
ei-Amiga. 

The reason you cannot get hold of an 
Amiga power plug is that it is a none 
standard connection, being used only on 
Amigas, The only way you are going to get 
hold of one is by cutting the plug off your 
old Amiga PSU, and then solder the lead 
to the PC power supply. 

It would also be advisable to double 
check the power output from the PSU 
with a multi tester, before actually 
connecting it to your Amiga. 

As far as I know, there is no way to dis- 
able the Apollo board without actually 
removing it from the trap door. The only 



A 1200 accelerators I know of that can be 
easily disabled are the Blizzard boards - 
with the 1230 you just hold down the 2 
key when you reset the machine and the 
entire board is disabled. 

Finally, I have not actually played any 
games that suffered from having an accel- 
erator, and all Doom clones and flight sim- 
ulators will benefit with a faster screen 
update. 


ACAS is the name, trouble 
shooting is the game. You've 
got a pro blem, then we 
can solve it 


ROTEXT PROCRASTINATOR 


Since using a standard A 1200 with a 40Mb hard drive. 
Protest v4 has obstinately refused to open its window, if 
intuition has been allowed to reset the Workbench screen 
once or more since bootup, due to any of the screen, 
palette or font preferences being in £NV', Pretext will 
refuse to open its window. 

It is possible to get Protexl to run by either having 
Workbench run in 2 colours - that makes it look really hor- 
rible - or not allowing IPrefs to run in the startup- 
sequence. The only other way to get Pretext to work is by 
using a Workbench screen that rs 1900 pixels wide. Protext 
will then open a huge window that is not at all practical to 
use. 

Mr Churchill, Nottingham 

Protext is quite an old program, and even version 4 was 
written with Workbench 1.3 in mind. Having said that, 
there realty should be no problems running such an OS 
legal program, unless it is doing something naughty. 


You would normally assume, in (his sort of case, that 
the program is at fault, but Protext is normally a very 
well behaved program, and version 4.3 should run 
under Workbench 2 without any problems. 

Generally, in these situations you have to assume 
that the program is at fault, but as 1 have said you 
should not be having any trouble with Protext, Your first 
move would be to check the program tool types. From 
here you can normally adjust certain options to do 
with how a program works. In this instance, an option 
to get Protext to run on its own screen would be nice to 
try. 

After that, you are only really left with trying to 
adjust any window settings from within the program, 
or it is always worth checking that some other 
background program or hack, as some of them can 
turn out to be r is not interfering with it. Other than 
that, it would be worth considering an upgraded to 
Protext 6.

EMOTE DEVICES 


Hi, l am Diego and am writing (ram 
Argentina. I have an A 1200 with 6Mb and 
/ would like to know a couple of things. I'm 
searching for a game that can be played 
over the modem, and I already have Skid 
Marks 11, but would like to try something a bit 
different. 

A friend of mine has bought a CD 12 and saw a 
coble that you can plug into the A 1200 and CD 32 to 
allow you to access the CD 32 with the A 1200, Do 
you know of this cable, and does it actually work? 

Diego Waisman, Buenos Aires 

It is always nice to hear from one of 
our farther flung readers, and 
Argentina is pretty far flung. Games 
that are playable over the modem, in the Skid 


>/ 


Marks manner, are pretty rare on the Amiga. The 
only one ( can think of off the top of my head is 
Knights of the Sky by MicroPros*. This is a very 
good World War 1 dog fighting flight sim 
and really zooms along on a A 1200, as it was 
written with the A500 in mind. Other than that I 
cannot think of any others, and even all our game 
gurus were stumped. 

With regard to what your friend saw, a couple 
of devices came out that allowed the CD32 to be 
connected to an A1200. This was via a serial 
cable and using something like serNET which lets 
you access the CD32 drive like any other 
disk from the Workbench. They work well, but the 
real problem with all of these is that they are 
generally quite slow because of the slow serial 
cable.

ISSING MMU 


j own an Amiga 4000/030 and haw been having trouble with tunning out of RAM 
when using my sound sampler and digitiser, A friend suggested I send off for a 
virtual memory program from a PD house. 

I followed the instructions which said it will work on any Amiga with Workbench 
J 2,x and higher, hut I just simply cannot get It to work, Alt 1 can get it to do is write a 
4Mb file to my hard drive and then crash. I hope you car help. 

/{Tines Sergeant Sussex 

* y If things in life were only so simple. Unfortunately, the program instruc- 
tions are lying. To use virtual memory in this way, you have to 
have a MMU - a memory management unit - fitted to your machine. 
The Q5Q version of the A4000 is the EC version, so has no MMU, and 
therefore, unfortunately, you will not be able to get the advantages of virtual 
memory.

1200 ANSWERS 


I am thinking of buying an A 1200 
later this year, but there are a num- 
ber of questions I am confused 
,J about that l would like answering 
before I buy one, 1 will probably be 
using the Amiga for scanning and word 
processing applications. 

1. What is the difference between 2,5 and 
3.5 inch hard drives? 

2. Is there really enough room to fit and 
install one of the above drives inside the 
A 1 200? 

3. Which do you recommend - internal or 
extern aD 

4. Does an IDE hard drive mean it is internal? 

5. An J Over Drive" hard drive seemed to cost 
less and be more convenient, and does not 
invalidate the Amiga's warranty by slotting 
straight into the PCMCIA port. Does this 
mean I cannot use the Squirrel interface? 

6. Using SCSI CD-ROM doves on the Amiga, 
rt'hkh CDs can 1 use? Philips CD-i, CD32 PC 
CD-ROMs? 

7. How good are the graphics of the AC A 
chipset compared with PCs? 

Andrew, a.m.h.\>vongJ<a;udon,ac.uk 


It would probably have been 
y — * easier just to say tell me 
everything you know about 
IDE drives and the Amiga! IDE 
stands for Integrated Drive Electronics, this 
means that the hard drive interface is built 
into the drive. So when it comes to fitting 
an IDE drive all you have to do is connect 
it with an IDE cable. 

To answer your first two questions, 3,5 
inch drives are, surprisingly, an inch wider 
and generally a lot larger than 2.5 inch dri- 
ves. They also have a separate power sup- 
ply and are quite a bit cheaper, due to 
them being easier to make. The A1200 was 
designed to take a single 2.5 inch hard 
drive infernally, but it is possible to fit a 
3.5 inch drive inside an At 200, although it 
is quite a squeeze and you need to get 
hold of a special cable to fit it 

I would opt for the internal drive, mainly 
because It does not take up any more desk

I limes find yourself 

« g ^ jflj poised over your 

4 I & £ Amiga with axe in 

hand, spouting pro - 
fortify at the stubborn refusal of your software or 
hardware to behave properly 7 

Well calm down and swap the axe for pen and paper, 
jot down your problems, along with a description of your 
Amiga setup, and send it off to Amiga Computing Advice 
Service, toC Media, Medio House, Adlington Park, 
Macclesfield SKID 4NP. Alternatively, e-mail us at

the low price ol the 'OverDrives is that they 
use 5.5 inch drives which are cheaper. The 
big draw back Is that you will lose your PC 
slot, so you will not be able to use cmy 
other hardware that uses the PC slot. 

In answer to question six, the Amiga 
can read any of these CDs but rt can only 
run programs which are written for the 
Amiga. Therefore, you may be able to look 
at file on a PC CD, but you cannot run any 
PC programs, 

it is a little difficult to directly compare 
AGA to a PC system. HAM modes are 
unique to the Amiga and can be thought of 
as a pseudo 24-bit display that Only 
requires 8 bitpfanes. Therefore, on a dis- 
play basis AGA Is equivalent to a 2Mb 
SVGA graphics card. Where it loses out is 
on screen update. If you try to run a 256 
colour screen On anything but a low reso- 
lution screen then AGA starts to show the 
strain. If you then try a DblPAL no flicker 
screen In 2 56 colours, screen update 
almost grinds to a halt. 

On PC systems the effects of running 
higher resolution modes are much less 
pronounced, as PC video cards use video 
RAM. This allows the screen to be updated 
by the computer, as well as being out- 
putted to the monitor for display. The AGA 
chipset can only do one of these at a time, 
and in high resolution screens, displaying 
the screen takes up so much time that 
there are very few dock cycles left for the 
screen to be re-drawn. 


Qd quandary 


I want to add a CD-ROM to my A 1 200, but the information 1 am gening 
about CD-ROMs seems to be inconsistent, In reading letters about 
CD-ROMs, people seem to be having quite a bit of trouble getting them up 
and running. 

So, my questions are: Do you have recommendations as to brands that 
are compatible with my system?; do I have to get drivers, since I have Workbench 
5.0, from the AmiCDRom handler, or would they be included and be able to work 
on the Amiga when I purchase a CD-ROM?; would the Squirrel help in connecting 
the CD-ROM up to my system? Any other pertinent information you might have 
about CD-ROMs would be quite helpful to me since I am starting at ‘ground zero." 

Michael Wilson, Seattle USA 


>v think you have got a little too worried about fitting a CD-ROM to 

t — J your Amiga. The process should be, and is, very straightforward, 

-j You have probably got a little confused from other problem letters 
in which people are trying to add CD-ROMs to an existing 
SCSI board. If you already own a SCSI interface then H: is necessary to get bold 


of the AmiCDRom handler software - this is public domain, so is readily 
available. The installation is very straightforward - you just have to make 
sure you pick the right device name for you SCSI interface and that the 
CD is set to the right SCSI ID. This is where people can have problems, but you 
just have to check in the manual what the device name is for that particular 
interface. 

If you are starting from scratch then I would recommend the Squirrel option. 
You get a proper SCSI interface, and the supplied software is setup to use a CD- 
ROM. If you purchase the CD-ROM with the Squirrel you have a ready-to-use 
solution. Just install the software, which is very straightforward, and away you 
gd 

Currently, the only real bind with Amiga CD software is CD 53 incompatibility. 
The Squirrel comes with CD 32 emulation which is pretty good, but can still fail 
to run some CD52 games - however, all other Amiga CDs will work fine. 
Hopefully, game writers producing CD software will move towards writing 
generic Amiga CD titles that simply act like hard drive installed games, but 
working from the CD.

features graphical analyses of transactions 
(either on ore day, in a week, or over a 
month), lets you enter reminders, and keeps 
a log file in case you acci dentally after some- 
thing and need to backtrack at a later date. 

Also included is Financial Accounts 1,4, 
which offers pretty much everything that 
Ultra Accounts does, with added extras such 
as VAT statements and an investments 


It's all very well deciding you want to organ- 
ise your accounts more effectively using your

avarlahle and you may be put off. It's not 
that it's not up to the job; more that you're 
not up to deciphering it A good old pen and 
paper are far simpler... 

On this disk are two excellent little pro- 
grams. The first. Ultra Accounts 2.0, is joyfully 
easy to get up and running, and helpful doc- 
umentation speeds up the process still fur- 
ther. The screen is uncluttered and the intu- 
ition-style interface means you'll feel at

relatively painless and then it's simply a mat-

The first of the two disks contains a fast and effective viewing program, some rather brief

[ IGP-ED V3 

Produced by: Oliver Roberts 

Available from: Aminet 


Geoff CraTnmond's Formula One Grand Prix 
n quite probably the greatest computer 
^ame ever (although admittedly Sensible 
World Of Soccer comes quite dose). The 
problem is that Microprose have not seen fit 
CD update it in any way whatsoever since its 
original release in 1991, with the conse- 
quence that the data contained in the game 
is now rather out of date. 

To address this problem, and to provide 
numerous gameplay improvements, Oliver 
Roberts wrote FlGP-Ed, an early version of 
which made its way onto an Amiga 
Computing coverdisk some time ago. It 
enabled the editing of team and driver 
names, car colour schemes and suchlike, 
and allowed less patient drivers to cheat by 
employing the driver aids even on the higher 
skill levels, 

FlCP-Ed has since developed at a phe- 
nomenal pace. Version 3 enhances the game 
in numerous ways. It's now possible to edit, 
amongst other things, car set-ups and cam- 
era views, the lap records, and the frame 
rate of the display (producing smoother 
graphics on faster machines), There are also 
plenty of fancy additions: there's an optional 
pit-lane speed limit for added realism, plus 
the facility to upgrade computer car perfor- 
mance on various circuits, and a handy cheat 
whereby your car's position can be 
snapshotted at any paint and then recalled. 
The latter function is extremely useful for

EAR DOWN THE WALL 


Produced by; Union 

Available from: 17 Bit Software 
Disk No: 3907 


Pink Floyd's Another Brick In The Wall receives the demo 
treatment, with a rather scratchy sample of the song 
being accompanied by plenty of fairly Fuzzy graphics. 

Don't expect Gilmour and co to perform at CD quality; 
knackered 70's tape^deck quality is closer to the mark. However, some quite impressive data 
compression has obviously gone on to squeeze this whole pr eduction onto one floppy disk, 
so the low sample quality is excusable, (It also probably helps avoids copyright problems.,.) 

The visuals, if a little less than impressive in definition, are at least a little more imaginative 
and impressive than might be expected. They're not stunning by any stretch of the 
imagination, but they're passable. 

Suddenly, however, Another Brick In The Wall finishes and we're catapulted Into a rather 
average, highly predictable demo featuring texture-mapped donuts and cheesy tracker music. 
This bizarre turn of events is a little disappointing but unfortunately not entirely unexpected; 
perhaps a sad indictment of Amiga demos in 1995. There are few surprises left these days, 
and demo programmers don't seem to be going out of their way to hit us with them. Still, at 
least Tear Down The Wall includes some music that's not straight out of the Euro-cheese 
dance stable.

Another compilation ol handy little utilities, in 
the mould of the Vark diski. Most ate accompa- 
nied by Read Me files., and those which aren't 
are, for the most part, relatively easy to get to 
grips with. 

There are plenty of useful inclusions: there's 
t.arhefnnt, which creates a file listing everything 
in youT Fonts drawer, allowing programs to scan 
its contents far more quickly; CkkNot, which 
stops the floppy drive from making that irrrtatrng 
dkking noise when there's no disk inserted; and 
CPalette, which brings up a palette requester on 
any screen, 

DoubfeX forces mode promotion on ACA 
machines, even on programs which normally 
refuse to be affected. Embedder is a superb ACA 
downgrading utility that runs as an Applcon r so 
ACA-unfriendly programs can simply be dropped 
onto its icon and run instantly. Fake mem is for 
A12QQ owners, and converts all but 512k of 
RAM into FastRAM, and apparently this makes it 
possible to run certain applications Such as 
Caligan, which otherwise would refuse to run.

files and can add little notes for future refer- 
ence. idlelED turns the power light into a CPU 
load indicator, so that its possible to tell when 
your machine ii working hard. Nuke is a 'secure 1 
deletion program - it physically removes $ pro- 
gram rather than simply Idling the machine to 
forget about its existence. This means the file 
cannot later be undeleted by some curious 
individual. 

SystemSpeed, unsurprisingly, can left you 
how swift your machine is, whilst Stonecracker 
is a crunching utility in the Powerpacker mould 
which squishes programs down whilst leaving 
them fully executable. Snoopdos, although 
included in v 1.5 as opposed to the vastly superi- 
or v3, shou'd be on everyone's hard drive. It's 
excellent for finding out exactly why a stubborn 
program is refusing to work correctly, 

There are many more too, although in some 
cases rt may take a bit of work figuring out how 
die authors have compressed the documenta- 
tion - PPmore won't recognise several Read Me 
files. The chances are that Song time owners will 
already own a fair few of these utilities, but with 
so many to choose from, it r s a fair bet that 
everyone will find at feast a couple of new 
gems. 


OWEROIDS 


Produced by: Matthias Bock 

Available from: 17 Bit Software 
Disk No: 5920 


Asteroids is the sort of classic that has spawned many imi- 
tations, probably the most famous of which is 
Blood house's Super Stardust which boasted stunning 
graphics and a difficulty factor which made the legendary 
hard Rick Dangerous games seem like a doddle. 

Poweroids doesn't offer the same drop-dead gorgeous graphics - in fact, the visuals are 
somewhat disappointing, However, there is the added bonus of multi-player blasting action, 
because up to tour players can participate simultaneously with a four-player adapter, If you 
don't own one of those little gizmos, its at least possible to enlist the help of one chum to help 
destroy wave after wave of asteroids. There's also an excellent battle mode where players try to 
blast the living daylights out of one another. 

Unfortunately though, you'll only gel the chance to blast a couple of screenful? of asteroids 
into oblivion with this particular version, because Poweroids is shareware. The full version, with 
scores more levels, costs 20DM, Somewhat strangely, Poweroids requires a 69020 and 1 meg 

of chip RAM, but it does 
multitask happily (so don't 
get worried if the starfield 
starts to fade, it's just MCFs 
screen saw kicking in),

Let's see, the Amiga A 1200 has been around for, what, three years 
now? And Amos, infamous for refusing to run on any new machine 
until a patch is released for it, has never been upgraded to take advan- 
tage of the AGA chipset, Until now, that is. Formerly available for £10 
from the now deceased Amiga Nuts PD, this extension can now be 
obtained tor £3.99, and whilst it's still far from completion, it does 
finally offer keen Amos programmers some ACA effects. 

AGA screens can now be opened., the full range of colours is now 
available, and a host of enhanced versions of standard Amos com- 
mands are included. There are plenty of demonstration programs too, 
so getting used to the new (and well documented) commands 
shouldn't be too much of a chore. 

Fully compatible with both 'Classic' Amos and Amos Pro, this has 
been eagerly anticipated by many tor a very long time.

Gamer's Delight is another 
compilation CD courtesy of 
Schatzruhe, and basically it’s 
based along the lines of the 
Assassins disk. This, too, is 
also the second in the series 
but there were certain flaws 
in the menu system then. 

With this CD being designed 
by a foreign company, the translation comes across 
differently. 

For example, instead of platform games being referred to 
as 'platform games', they were referred to as 'jump and run', 
which in fairness is no real fault of their own, it just looks 
odd. The cursor to select options was a very faint colour, and 
straining your eyes to make out what you were going to 


select was imminent Gamers Delight 7 has now made an 
appearance containing 1070 games from different categories. 
There are 70 commercial releases, so don't expect Public 
Domain, and an example from the 'Jump and Run' category 
would be Go Kevin Go 1 - sounds great. There are various 
other games called Gardener, RollerbaH, Willi Watker and 
Balls. I suppose that sums up the CD quite well. 


No 


CONTEST 

It may not be as polished as the Assassins series, but ifs dif- 
ferent The games may be unheard of, and they may not be 
of outstanding quality, but that’s certainly not what you 
expect for E2&.95. 

Although the Assassins compilation is the same price, it's 
double the quality. I don't think there's any doubt which one 
you should go for.

Everybody who's anybody wilt have 
seen, heard, or even used the 
Aminet series, either on the past 
CD-ROM series or via modem. All the 
time, people are uploading their soft- 
ware for use on Ami net’s extremely 
impressive collection. Since its launch 
there have been nine CD-ROMs and 
these all contain the latest software for 
that lime. Therefore, if you happened 
to own the entire lot, you would proba- 
bly have the most comprehensive 
library of Amiga software to date. 

G.T.I. are back to distribute the 
famous Aminet Sets, and already they 
are on to their second in the series. The 
entire package is not cheap, at £34,95, 
although for your money you do get four CDs absolutely 
packed with gorgeous goodies that were uploaded in 
November. 

The CDs are split into categories - the first containing the

The Assassins Ultimate Games is the second 
■ the series of CDs, foil owing on from the 
nmensely popular first instalment It inclu-

utilities. What made ihrs compilation superb 
were the presentation and features, an 
excellent menu system, bootable or non- 
bootable as well as compatibility with the 
CD32. 

This collection has game disks T- 1 20, 6Q 
utility disks, and 70 workbench games.

ET WORK CD 2 


The first Network CD arrived 
courtesy ol Weird Science 
some time ago, and now theii 
latest Networking CD has 
finally appeared - (aster and 
far more powerful than ever 
before. 

The main idea is to join 
together the Amiga and a 
CD32 via a cable from the Serial or Parallel port to the 
Auxiliary port on the CD32. This will give your CD32 a new 
tease of life as a remote CD-ftQM drive, As most CD drives 
are operated via SCSI and the PCMCIA slot, the majority 
tend to be quad -speed and almost instantaneous. You may 
be thinking that because the CD32 is only double-speed, 
the file exchange rate won't be particularly good Well, you 
would be right, although on this Network CD there are 
many programs to get the most from your CD32 as well as 
the fastest speed. 

Setting up is made even easier than before - a simple 
process of entering the CD, booting up the machine, waiting 
for it to be ready, and sending all the relevant information 
down the Serial cable. Then a pseudo-device entitled 
“Metwork'' will appear on your desktop, inside here you will 


by some excellent presentation. There are 
descriptions of the games as well as informa 
tidn on the author, so it really does add up 
to being one of the most professionally 
presented CDs around today.

find a CDQ and RAM drawer, and you must remember that 
they are only drawers and not devices, Once this h set-up 
you can change the CD in CD32 because it will override the 
auto-reset function, then all you have to do is assign it and 
away you go - it r s as simple as that. 

What makes this one of the most delightful packages is 
that if you should move the mouse pointer off-screen it will 
simply appear to have locked op, Adding another monitor 
through the CD32 will reveal your mouse pointer moving 
swiftly around on the other monitor. Also, not only can the 
mouse be transferred to the other machine, but also the 
keyboard, as soon as you move off-screen. 

Improvements 

Depending on your machine and setup, you will have a 
variety of baud rates from 57,600 to 1 15,200, and 
for a standard At 200 you r d be able to get 
away with 76,800. There are programs 
such as SID, for file transfers and 
for viewing various formats 
as well as many other 
Internet and access tools 
You can also unpack 
various bootable disks 
to make the connection 
procedure even easier. 

The main improvements 
over the first are that the CD 
boots in around 45 seconds, the 
CD32's programs can be run from 
the Amiga itself, the connection pro- 
cedure is simplified to only a click of a 
button, and you also get many anima- 
tions, games and images bundled on the 
disk to kickstart you CD-Rom usage - these 
can all be viewed or played through SlD, so 
everything you could possibly think of has 
been included. 

Anybody with a CD32 and Amiga should 
seriously think about getting connected, If 
you look at all the CD-ROMs on these very 
pages you will see just what you are missing 
out on. This is none other than an essential 
purchase.

NCOUNTERS: THE UFO PHENOMENON EXPOSED 


u 


OlllErX 



THE I' -O 
P HSnOIM IDO- 


There are so marry ques- 
tions about ufology that 
most people are either 
too scared to ask or too 
sensible. People are 
frightened with the 
unknown, and recently, 
although having being 
around for many years, 
aliens are beginning to steal the limelight and become 
more believable than ghosts. Or are they the same thing? 
One reputed feature of Aliens is that they can take any 
form! Apparently. 

What does an Alien look like? Does the government 
really communicate with them? Was the Roswell incident 
a cover-up? Have places like Hangar 1 8 stored ufol- 
ogy? Who are the Men in Black? Why do they 


drive red Escorts? 

All these questions and more are 
revealed on this brand new CD 
called Encounters: The UFO 
Phenomenon Exposed. On the 
rear cover rt. says: This CD con- 
tains information that 
NOBODY wants you to know/ 

And this is perfectly true, 

However, don't take it the 
wrong way, thinking they're 
stolen classified reports. They are 
merely documents people have 
managed to lay their hands on. Are 
they tree? Nobody knows- 

If the government did come out and make 
a speech to say that UFOs/Aliens Q rfj] . pfctm „ t „, 

existed, although there s really noth mui0 p M y. tt *** bought to h 9 m by a 
ing to wony about, there would be a 


world panic However, if they manage to keep it as one of 
those 'believe it or not subjects, the public would have 
no option but to disbelieve it 
According to a document in the CD itself, there are 
over 70 recognised species of 'Aliens' or other beings. 
The most popular of species has to be the 'Greys.' These 
are described as being thin and spindly, have large bald 
heads, huge dark eyes, two dots for a rose, and a small 
line for a mouth. And of course they are grey. 

After having read almost every documentor the entire 
CD, I now fed as though I'm getting to know quite a bit. 
For instance, did you knew that the government are car- 
rying out a coverup as we speak? Well, it's called an 
indoctrination, and it's a plan to make you disbelieve. 
When a UFO sighting is reported, and it's a major one 
which the government can't explain, they filter it 
through to a popular medium - namely the 
tabloids. They will then blow it out of 
proportion - such as the 't was 
snatched by Pamela Anderson 
look-a-like aliens!' story - so peo- 
ple laugh it off, and subcon- 
sciously dismiss the whole 
thing. Clever? I think so. 

This CD covers every budding 
ufologist's dreams as there are 
documents covering abduc- 
tions, origins, cattle mutilations, 
crop circles, landings, sightings, 
crashed UFOs, and government 
conspiracies and cover-ups. 

Basically, the entire CD uses an 
AmigaGuide and all the documents can be 
accessed very easily along with a 
series of pictures. Most of the CO is 
rninfc jfnsauetr. i *ay mor*,.. text related — 200Mb - which 



means there are a lot of documents. However, each cate 
gory has its own pre-packed Lha hie so you can instantly 
unpack it to your hard drive. 

All the information on the CD is excellent It gives all 
sorts of documents that are supposedly 'top secret' and 
some of the accounts of abductions will send a shiver 
down your spine. The whole CD covers everything to do 
with UFOs, especially offering explanations as to why 
World War 2 started! Hitler was an alien! Er, I made that 
up actually. It does sound like some people take it ton 
fir, but after actually reading the documents, how can 
you possibly not believe it? This is the case when 
500,000 people have reported abductions in America 
and they all roughly fol low the same pattern Spooky! 

If you have a keen interest in ufology or you're looking 
for some convincing evidence, look no further,

UROCSENE 2 

By now, you probably know about under- 
ground clubs and places where everyone gets 
together to 'join as one' and just enjoy life. 

No restrictions, no egotistical bigots - every- 
body is free to enjoy what they want to enjoy. 

Euroscene is more or less an underground 
Amiga scene, where various Amiga users get 
together for parties and groupings for demo 
showings, music and pictures, amongst other 
things, and then generally talk about if after- 
wards - on demos. That's why you always get 
a certain type of text on demo scrollers which, 

H you haven't been to a certain venue, you 
won't understand. Generally, these venues 
are held alt around the country, although 
mainly in Europe. 

This CD contains various files from these 
particular get-togethers. Images, demos, 




C atm* s*

music, graphics and all the relative players 
and views are included, The main source of 
ail these various formats come from diskmags 
and if you're a keen follower of these, then 
they will undoubtedly inform you of various 
forthcoming 'bashes/ 

Categorisation 

The categories are divided up i-nto a listing 
which is sorted by the name of the group. 
You may recognise some of them if you have 
used Aminet or other compilation CDs. Most 
of the larger files or demos are compressed 
as a D MS format, although there are many 
ready-to-run programs and files. There are 
also various graphic viewers, mod players, 
text resources, programming guides and 
many other useful utilities. As you'd expect. 


Roughly

'Th*

the quality of the demo/image/module rea- 
lly depends on the respective quality of the 
group. At the moment, the Polka Brothers 
seem to have made a big impact of the 
demo scene, ranking high in the charts of 
many diskmags. 

If you are into the demo side and getting 
to know other Amiga users, then Euroscew 
will manage to satisfy your curiosity into 
these underground happenings. It's certainly 
good value for money at £9.99.

ith Amiga powered sys- 
tems being used to 
drive powerful multi- A 
media information 


systems at such places as the 
Cleveland police for ce r 
Colchester Zoo, hotels, 
petrol stations, football 
grounds and a multitude of 
other areas all over the 
world, and at a fraction of 
the cost of alternative PC 
systems. The Amiga has. 
more than proved It has the 
capabilities to be used in 
such systems. 

ImageVision is a new product 
from a company based in 
Sweden, and it is their intention to 
produce and develop ImageVision to 
be, at the very least, as functional as Seal a 
MM400, if not better. 

The ImageVision package comes in a very 
well presented double CD case. The actual 
disk is cm the front side of the CD case with 
the extras CD on the other. You do not actu- 
ally need a CD-ROM drive to use the program 
because the entire ImageVision program and 
basic tutorial are all compressed onto the sin- 
gle floppy, The CD is just there to hold a far 
more advanced demo script and a whole 
host of extras. 

Some of the extras include a wide selec- 
tion of excellent backdrops covering liquids, 
stone and some more surreal types, full- 
screen Mpeg animations, along with a few 
music modules and a lot of high-quality 
Sound samples, These are not all installed 
with the ImageVision program but will, of 
course, still be available off the CD, 

Installation is very straightforward using 
the standard installer, even though it does 
take a while, A basic installation will only 
require about 5Mb worth of hard drive space, 
while if you go for the full installation include 
ing the full CD demo script this requires over 
25Mb of hard drive space. Everything gets 
copied into a single directory, apart from the 
extra fonts and a couple of assigns that have 
to be added to your user-startup. 

When you start up ImageVision, the first 
thing that strikes you is just how good look- 
ing it is, The interface even puts MU! to 
shame, but just because something is good 
looking does not particularly mean it is worth 
having. This thing is going to have to be quick

With aims to topple 

MM400's reign as the 
supremo Amiga multimedia package, 
Neil FVlohr discovers whether 
ImageVision can pull off a coup

mom than om- media type. 
i,e. sound, tsd and graphics 


to learn, easy to use, and feature packed if it 
is going to beat Scala. 

The main interface consists of three basic 
windows - the script, tools, and icon win- 
dows. Using all three you can easily and 
quickly construct complex multimedia pre- 
sentations, For each script you are working 
on there is a single script window. A start 
icon wili always be the first icon you have 
and from this start point you drag in new 
icons, each icon relating to the action you 
want to take place at that point in the script.

To decompress Mpeg video 
footage requires, □ lot ot pro- 
cessing power, nod normally 
only a special decompression 
ctvp can achieve TV standard 
picture quality 


Construction 

The actual Script construction is done in a 
tree-style format, with parent icons in the 
tree having 'child' icons connected from 
them, As this is meant to represent the linear 
sequence that the presentation will take, 
only menu icons are allowed to have more 
than ore 'child' connection. 

With a menu icon, each of its child icons 
would represent a possible selection in that 
menu. All the others have to be connected in 
the sequence they should appear in. To 



tmptim required 


RAPHICS EDITOR 


This built-in part of ImageVision is where you con con- 
struct your various menu screens, if you double -dick on 
any menu icon in the script window you can gain access 
to the graphics editor from the menu's requester. 

The graphics editor seems to hove been designed with 
the basic assumption that you will be using a background 
graphic which wit! then have your various menu choices 
on top of that This is because most of the tool's available 
are geared towards faying out and presenting blocks of 
text over a background screen. Having said that, you are 
able to load in brushes over your background and scale 
these to any size you wish and move them to any position. 

The main tool box available on the editor's screen 
allows you to change the appearance of the on-screen text 


in a variety of ways. You are able to choose whot font the 
text should appear as, whether it should be freely posi- 
tioned or formatted with left/right justification or centred. 
Along with these, you can also add drop shadows, hart- 
ground colour text fill colour, or apply o bevelled effect to 
the text all of which can take their colour from a scrollable 
colour selection at the bottom of the requester, 

Once text has been entered you are free Id move it any- 
where on the screen you mini as-rng the mouse, or enter 
another section of text which you can then apply with a 
different set of effects. Any af the current available colours 
can also be changed by hitting the edit button, and this 
then pops up one of those newish Amigo colour wheel 
gadgets . , allowing you to choose a new colour. 


I 


connect one icon to another, every icon has 
a small white tail coming out of the top of it 
and you just grab this and drag it to the icon 
you want to connect it to, The two icons will 
then be linked in The tree. 

Once icons have been dragged from the 
icon's window into the script window they 
can be moved around, selected, cut, pasted, 
and if you double-click an them you can con- 
figure the various aspects of that type of icon. 
To help distinguish between similar icon 
types in the script window, each icon can be 
given a name that is shown in the screen 
title bar when you place the mouse over iL 

This way of constructing the script is excel- 
lent, It is possible tp see the form that the 
presentation will take straight away, and it is 
very easy to change the flow of a presenta- 
tion. I was a little concerned at first that a 
large script would become unwieldy because 
the tree could become quite large, but to 
prevent this ImageVision has a couple of 
tools to help you organise the script into 
sections. 

The first are the group and un group func- 
tions which help you package a selected area 
of icons into a single group icon on the scrip!

LICK EDITOR 


''.so available from a menu icon's requester, the dick editor is where you add the actual active 
aras to buttons or hot spots on each menu screen. When you first run the dkk editor for any 
m menu, you are presented with whatever graphic design you have drawn up for that menu, 
ahng with a list view requester with oil the possible menu selections for that screen. 

The possrWe setectforts dre to go bad to the previous menu from the current one r and nor- 
mally this is made possible by pressing the right mouse button anywhere an the screen, and 
the others will be all the child nodes from that icon, These are all listed in the 'Action 1 list view 
requester. 

To make an area of the screen ‘selectable’ you have to first mark out the area that you want 
hie Lrscr to have to dkk on for any one menu selection, This is done by using cure of four tools 
aren't fed by ImageViston. Currently ; buttons can take four shapes - either rectangular, circular 
dkpse, or a complex polygon shape. The polygon shape allows you to define any outline shape 
using any number of straight lines, so with only a little patience it is possible to build up some 
quite complex button shapes.

even the authors admit InnageVision is not 
currently on a par with Scala, but it is their 
firm intentions to make it so. 

The program has been written in a mod- 
ule form so new icons can be added at any 
time, therefore making the program easy to 
extend. ImageVision also has the advantage 
of being a good deaf cheaper than MM4C0. 


In terms of features, Scale currently has the 
advantage, but with I mageVi lion's superb

keep regularly adding to ImageVision, Scala 
could be faced with a very strong competitor.

svindow- This will help you tidy up the look 
pt your scripts. When a section of the script 
has been tested, select all the Icons, hit the 
group option, and you will be left with a sin- 
gle group icon. This can be given a name in 
the normal way so you know what it is at a 
later date. 

The other tools are the jump, subroutine 
and return icons which allow you to create a 
new section of the script away from the rest. 
By adding a |ump kon where the new sec- 
tion should go and then adding a subroutine 
icon, you are able to create part of the script 
away from the rest of it. The return icon then 
forces the script to return back to the parent 
icon ol the original jump command. 

This all adds up to a highly intuitive, easy- 
to-use interface with which it is a doddle to 


Compared to Scalo there is only a paftry number of wipes and fades 
available. The scroll gadget to the light of them, however, suggests that 
there could be future additions here. The wipes currently available are 
fade to black/white and background, slide up/ down, bounce up/down, 
co ver up/over, and card up/down, iVrpes can be applied between sec- 
tions in the script, so menus con be gracefully disposed of, and in the

0 rrkey 4 haven't printers come a 
tong way since that old Star 
LC’ 1 0? I can distinctly^ 
remember passing round jm

reproduction Okay, so it was a JB 
bit murky and, yes, there was jfl 
some evidence of banding, but

No, don't print too many jl

comes out more like a bil- I

uses yellow anyway? ‘ 

And when I got my 1 
Canon BJIUe, wow! Print I 
quality technically superior pi 
to a laser printer, compact 
and bijou, fantastic. But <sSs 
Canon's new baby is as far in V!£aM 
advance of the BiTOe as that 
was in advance of that sad old 
Star. Apart from the lack of a 
Postscript interpreter on board, you ^B 
could almost mistake it for a colour 
proofing machine, The BJC61 0 has the ^B 
small footprint innately typical of p rev i - i 
ou§ Canon bubbilejet printers and is 
beautifully styled. The construction of this 
beautifully styled printer isn't halt bad 
either. When I had my BJ10 it was a lot 
more rickety and pfasticky than this one is, 
although Canon still haven't been able to 
get rid of the customary grinding noises as 
the print head gets cleaned. 

Lake most other bubblejets you really 
only get the best results on special coated 
paper, but

Frank Nord finds out 


some other inkjets currently cm the market, 
you can print on standard copier bond with 
the BJC61G, Canon can also supply you 
with a variety ol specialist papers and films 
to meet your needs such as transparencies, 
glossy papers and back print film, If you are 
going to use it lor high-quality DTP do be 
aware that running costs, particularly if you 
are using the coated paper, are going to be 
quite high, but no more so for the BJC510 
than for any similar printer, 
Canon's own brand coated 
paper goes for £22 ex VAT 
MBHKL_ for 200 sheets, but you 
will probably be able 


to find thir<b party papers cheaper. 

Canon has retained the cartridge mecha- 
nism that was present on the BJC60C 
where you have a print head and four sep 
arate cartridges for the inks - one black 
cartridge that can be double the size of the 
others, and one each of a cyan, magerta

(I Replace Yellow Ink 


Because the BJC6W is such a high resolution machine it is 
difficult to make sure that the print head is optimally 
aligned when it comes ouf of the box. To remedy this \ 
Canon hove a handy little self-test function that prints out 
bars onto a sheet of paper along with instructions on what 
io do, Simply choose the bar that looks the most solid and 
make the lights light up in the right combination and voild r 
you've just set your print head correctly. It is features Me 
this that make owning and running a modem printer light 
years ahead of all those old lo-fi models ive used to use.

hat's new pussy cat? 


ffiwf mdeed Well, you know that the BJC6W has q maxi- 
miim print resolution of 720dpi, but unfortunately, the only 
wy to take advantage of this super printing without 
spending any extra money r at the time of writing , is to 
Diw? a K equipped with Windows. Canon have produced 
an extremely high speed driver for Windows that will 
wfpL/f 720dpi prints { after a while - high resolution 
printing takes time), but there is no equivalent for the 
kmga. 

Atone sadly, there ore no plans to ship this printer with a 
driver of any sort hr the Amiga owner , although it c an be 
used with the current BJC6W drivers that are available. 


However , because these were written for the 8JC600 
rather than the BJC6W, they only work at up fa J 60dpi so 
you will only be using half the printer's capabilities. 

Since Waif Faust has o/Woys had such □ good relation- 
ship with Canon there is □ possibility that the Windows 
software might he reproduced an the Amiga, which would 
definitely he an improvement as everything is automated 
through it. As it is, your only option if you want to get the 
best results oaf of this printer (or indeed any printer) is to 
buy Studio, The very latest version (2,10) supports the 
BJC610 fully and outputs fantastic mutts thanks to the 
unique colour matching system ft employs. 


Canon can also supply you 
with a variety of specialist 
papers and films to meet 
your needs such as 
transparencies, glossy 
papers and back print film 


No arguments there then. Even So, moat of 
the prints 1 did, which varied in size 
between a quarter of a page and half a 
page, took no longer than fifteen minutes. 
The way the paper feeds into the printer is 
quite handy too. The fact

and yellow cartridge. These can all be indi- 
vidually replaced so if you're printing off all 
rhusE yellow pictures that you never did 
when you had a colour dot-matrix printer, 
you won't be forced to go out and buy all 
four inks in one go. 

Masterpiece 

T you go for a 24-bit 720dpi masterpiece 
■ii printing, don't expect to walk away with 
it immediately, unless it J $ about Srtirn 
across that is. The BJCG10 is not as fast as 
the equivalent Hewlett Packard, as Canon 
themselves readily admit. But, as they say, 
would you rather wait a minute less for a 
print, or have the highest possible quality?

that you have at least a smidgen of a view 
of the line the printer is currently painting 
down onto the paper means that if there is 
anything drastically wrong - printing in 
greyscale rather than colour, for instance - 
you can stop the print immediately rather 
than have to wait until the paper has 
emerged from the body of the machine. 



UT OF INK 


Right that's it, I'm out of ink on the topic of 
the Canon BJC6W, but it remains for me to 
soy that I thought I wos getting the best end 
of the stick with my mono Postscript laser 
pnnter. However, the results achievable with 
this ore nothing short of superb. Make sure 
you include the cost of buying Studio ff in 
your budget when buying this printer 
because you won't get even half as good 
results without it, and use Canon s glossy 
paper for your bestesf prints. Right, l r m off to 
persuade Canon to let me keep this one and 
see If I crifi'f persuade them to give me some

L ou could not but help notice- the 
lifie nature of the Aminet CDs 
turn, your back for one moment 
p and bang another one Hies 
n through the office door and hits 
you in the back of the head, 

Currently,, there seems to be a 
new one every month, which is 
i testament to how lively the 
Amiga PD scene has been and 
k still very much so. 

In amongst all the stuff you 
fad on Aminet, there is a type 
of program distributed under 
the title of shareware. This is 
the concept where the author 
allows you to test their program, 
which they could have spent 
years developing, to decide if you 
want to keep it If you do keep the 
program you are obliged to send the 
author a set fee which can be as little as 
impounds. 

Paying your shareware fee gives the author

QmageStudi 

ImageStudio should be fairly well known to 
everyone Programmed by a couple of local 
Macdesfield lads, this is a very well supported 
and put together image processing program. 
The main improvement for the latest version is 
he addition of full colour windowed previews 
hat let you get a better impression of what 
he final picture will be like. 

The package comes on two disks end is 
installed using - everyone together now - the 
standard Amiga installer. For people that have 
never used ImageStudio before, there are a 
good few tutorials to guide you through the 
different aspects of it These are in with the 
AmrgaGuide manual which also doubles as 
!he on-line help. 

You now have the option of the preview 
window working in either grey scale or colour 
modes, You wilt be gtad to know that the 
colour previews seem to be redrawn as fast as 
tie grey scale ones, but you will need a Hi-res 
screen mode with at least 64 colours to get 
'he best out of It 

ImageStudio has the normal array of colour 
control effects like balance, gamma and com 
fast, along with the standard image manipu- 
lation tools, such as flip, scale, cub grey scale, 
relative and pixellated. The more interesting 
parts o! ImageStudio come in the form of its 
convolute effects and the comprehensive 
Afiex* port 

Convolute is a normal image processing 
function, and through ft you can produce hun- 
dreds cf different effects. With ImageStudio 
you get a number ol standard convolutes 
which you can select from the handy convo- 
lute list view, lit is also possible to add your 


O 



own to the list and save them for future use. 

Some of you might be quite surprised when 
you look at the system requirements at the small 
amount of memory needed, because normally 
image processing programs need as much 
memory as possible. ImageStudio gets round 
this by implementing internal virtual memory 
which allows the image data to be stored on 
your hard drive, therefore taking up no memory. 
The down side is that all the disk access slows 
down the preview redraws. If you do have 
enough of RAM then you can tell ImageStudio to 
use the RAM Disk as the virtual memory storage 
space to gain 3 large speed increase. 

With a good modular program design allow- 
ing you to add your own convolutes and ARexx 
scripts at a later date, and regular updates being

mi Broker 


A rather unusual program, AmiBroker is a com- 
prehensive share manager, allowing you to 
study and predict trends In the market and to 
maintain a portfolio of shares. Installing is via 
the Amiga installer and this copies all the nec- 
essary files in to a single directory and installs a 
couple of fonts. 

The main interface is wonderfully pro- 
grammed. All the necessary tools are at hand 
in icon form, and the list of Shares are dis- 
played in a scrollable list view. The remainder 
of the screen is taken up with a display of the 
recent form of the selected share along with 
any of the statistical analysis functions you can 
choose. One excellent feature is that when you 
select or deselect an anafysis function, the 
remaining windows automatically resize to fit 
them all onto the screen. 

There are eight technical indicators of which 
I know nothing about, but there are good 
explanations ol them in the AmigaGuide man- 
ual, allowing you to try and predict how your 
various shares will perform. This runs alongside 
a risk/yiefd map that allows you to quickly see 
which shares give the best return at what risk 

One problem with shares is that if you have 
a good number of them in your portfolio, or 
just want to hack a lot of them, there is a lot of 
data involved. Currently, AmiBroker only sup- 
ports importing Teletext data from the Polish 
stock exchange. The programmer, however, is 
willing to modify the program for other coun- 
tries, and is working on an ASCII import to 
make importing share data much easier. 

As with Ami Atlas, this is better than many 
commercial products, and at SIS is a give 
away. With an excellent complete English 
translated manual and a set of comprehensive 
features for tracking the stock exchange, 
AmiBroker is a brilliant program, it is a shame 
that it may not get the wide use on the Amiga 
that it deserves. __ m ,

The Amiga realty has got more than its fair sha 
of image processing software, so any new prc-| 
gram is going to have to be something special 
get any sort of attention, image Processing! 
Revelations is a fairly straightforward program 
get up and running - a single half Mb execi 
with two extra directories. Containing ARexx 
preference settings. 

I PR runs using two separate custom sere 
Brilliance style. The front one contains the cont 
panel with the other screen showing you a 
screen preview of any loaded picture, 

The main control panel is nicely arranged, wl

the various accept, undo and cancel buttons always being available and in the same place, no mat- 
ter what function you are using. All the information on the Current picture is always available in 
top section, while the middle is used to display all the options for whichever function you 
selected. This gives a good coherent interface 
which is quickly learnt and very easy to use, 

Another nice touch is if the current image is too 
targe for the screen, you can either hit the space 
key to toggle the control panel on or off, or there 
js a small gadget in the top right that allows you 
to easily scroll the preview screen around. 

Where I PR comes out on top over most other 
packages is the extremely good palette control 
functions it provides. Fairly normal functions allow 
you to adjust the brightness, contrast and gamma 
available, but the immediate option allows you to 
adjust the palette in real time, so cutting out any 
wait lor a picture redraw. Only the grey scale and 
broadcast colour functions do not allow this. 

Other functions provided by !PR are mainly 
restricted to warping or flipping the picture in 
some way. Nothing too Earth shattering here - 
simple flips, rotates quite nice fish-eye and sine 
wave effects that do not leave you hanging 
around either. 

Overall, I PR is a very well presented program, 
quick to learn and easy to use. Unfortunately, 
other than the coEout control of 1PR there really is 
nothing here that makes I PR standout There is, 
however, a lot of promise and perhaps a new 
version would change the situation.

Executive 


For anyone that h not aware, the 
Amiga has a 52-bit multitasking oper- 
ating system, and has had since it 
first came out ten years ago. You may 
have noticed recently that this was 
the cornerstone to IBM's 05 Warp 
adverts, which seemed to proclaim 
this as some sort of amazing feat of 
programming genius. Sorry boys - 
beat you to it 

Executive compliments the exist- 
ing way Amiga DOS assigns processor 
time to each program running on 
your Amiga. Normally, the operating 
system will share processor time 
between the highest priority pro- 
grams that are asking for processing 
time. 

What Executive does is to watch 
how much processing time every 
program is using and shares it evenly, 
Therefore, every program that needs 
processor time can get some, so no 
single program can hog all of the 
processor, If you read the documen- 

(SEXIMQ 

FEBRUARY I 996 


tation that comes with the distribu- 
tion archive - which also doubles as 
the excellent on-line help - the 
author goes into great depth about 
explaining the use of different 
processor time sharing schemes. 
Some are suited to low processor 
loads while others handle high bad 
systems better, and to help tailor 
Executive to your system there are six 
different schemes for you to choose, 
so everyone should be able to find 
one to suit. 

To your average user just using 
Word worth, this is not going to be 
amazingly useful, but lor the power 
user and people that have a few CPU 
sucking programs running alongside 
each other. Executive can be of real 
value. It sits in the background 
diligently polling each task, and 
you will never know its there - 
apart from the fact that your 
programs will be running much 
smoother together,

Shareware games 



ASTER BLASTER 



* 


I cannot believe just how addictive this game 
is, it should have a government health wann- 
ing on the Side. I must have lost days playing 
this game with my friends. To be lair, 1 was a 
huge fan of the -original Oynrta Blaster which 
also allowed up to five players and had the 
same sickeningly addictive game play. For 


fj liVhert fhj'a firs! cam# 
pvt if was said fp 
encourage hrifljs Id ga alii 
planting bomba. Yeah, 
right 


people who do not know, Master Blaster is a 
owe type of game. You start off in a grid 
maze, trapped by exportable blocks. By drop- 
ping bombs you Create more mom to move 
around in and when you get the chance you 
can blow your fellow competitors to kingdom 
come. Along the way you can get power ups 
to gain more bombs, bigger flames and other 
handy abilities, 

This new shareware version adds many fea- 
tures to the original game. Along with the 
original game play and the ability to have five 
players on at once, the new version allows 
you to adjust almost every part of the game, 
You can select your favourite character graph- 
ics, how many wins are needed, and how 
much money to start with. 

Master Blaster allows you to collect money 
so you can buy power ups before you start the 
next round, and there is the chance to win free 
money in the nerve shattering Wheel-O-Fortune, 

With extra power ups, team play, three dih 
ferent levels, selectable power ups, and even 
better coding than the last version, you can 
now quit to Workbench. With addiction 
beyond belief Master Blaster is a must buy. 


Qeluxe galaga 


Another fiendishly addictive game, Deluxe 
Galaga is apparently based on an old Vic20 
game called StarBattle - can a Vic20 game be 
anything but old? As with Master Blaster, the 
programmer's main aim is lor the game to 
play well, and Deluxe Galaga certainly 
does that. Reminiscent of many old 
space invader type shoot-'em-ups, you 
have to battle your way through wave upon

wave of menacing alien meanies- 

Each wave swoops down in various initial 
attack patterns to form at the top of the 
screen, where they deploy in sorties, 
Galaxian§ style. Once you have killed them 
all, you're onto the next level. To add another 
layer to the game there are power ups to 
pick up which have been dropped by the 
aliens when you killed them, along with

n the beginning the 
earth cooled, the seas 
formed, and life came 
tp the planet, That life 
evolved from single cell animals a 
the way up the food chain to the 
dinosaurs which eventually became extinct 
lor reasons still uncertain. Man reached his 
ascendancy and invented the home computer, 
for which more men designed the software 
imagine 3. Finally, there came Dinpverse horn 
a small company called Kryonix and now we 
pin the story. 

Dinoverse is the name of a very cheap set of 
ejects designed for use with imagine 3 or 
trgher based! around a variety o! dinosaurs. 
There are lout dinosaurs; in the package rang 
mg from the highlyndetailed Velotiraptor design 
i; the Triceratops. En addition to these four 
familiar beasties, there is also a selection of 
prehistoric plants and insects, although, given 
the deferences in scale, you might never end 
up using them in the same scene together. 

Texture maps 

The objects themselves ate rot modelled in 
superfine detail, hut certainly detail enough for 
■whole body foreground shots, except for the 
■.sloci raptor which fills a disk all by itself. The 
texture maps that the author has created for 
the models are nice, with larger-than-screen 
sized bitmaps for good surface detail, but there 
are no separate greyscale bumpmaps for that 
authentic pebbly skin look, 

This is wholly due to Imagine s deficit when 
it comes to bump mapping an object with a 
texture. The reason for this is that Imagine 3 
uses the Y-axis to determine the apparent 
extent of the peaks and troughs of a picture 
used as a bumpmap, which means that posi- 
[ honing and sizing a texture in three dimensions 
1 becomes an impossibility. To add insult to 
injury, Imagined fairly groovy states function 
doesn't work properly with bumpmaps, so 
a though you can set a slate you can't 
lock it down, This means that instead 
of the bumpmap moving with your 
object it stays in the same place, so 
that your object moves through 
the texture. This problem is sup- 
jHKedi to be resolved m Imagine 
A, but as Kryonix supply the 
objects without bumpmaps, it's all 
nudh of a muchness. In addition 


to the dino- 
saur models, you will 
also find several landscapes that 
have been saved out of Vista Pro in 
two versions as low and very low resdu 
tion (compared to the originals) imagine 
objects which would make a useful back- 
ground on which to place your saurian actors. 

To finish off the scene, Kryonix have provi- 
ded an animated sky map with 120 frames of 
animation to overlay onto a cloud object as a 
transparency map. The sky animation is 
extremely subtle, so don't expect to see majoT 
changes in the sky if you use it Also it doesn't 
loop, which is a shame, so there's no use mak- 
ing your animations exactly 120 frames to take 

advantage of 3 loop. 

The 1 0 disk set comes with a printed man- 
ual explaining how to install the disks (simply 
copy them all into a drawer and assign it 
accordingly) and more importantly, how to 
actually use the objects in Imagine. The tutorial 
provided is written in a sparky, dear manner 
and makes it easy for even the hare bones (If 
yuLi'll forgive the pun) beginner to get to grips 
with the awkwardness that is the States lunc- 
tbn, One thing that must 
be pointed out is 
that you 
probably 


Digital lim still seem to 

be in vogue even two years 
after the release of Jurassic 
Park. Frank Nord investigates 


shouldn't read the manual if you are one of 
those people who get incensed by poor 
spelling, Numerous 't heir's for 'there's and 
bizarre punctuation means that the manual 
has a less than professional feel to it, and I 
would urge Jeff (the author) to use a spell 
checker before he does his next print run. 
Things like this do make a big impression on 
people and can spoil a very good produd 
However, at a cost of only E24.99, il is hard to 
fault the amount of work that has gone into 
the truly important side of this package - the 
models. ^ +r

ne of the most common prob- 
lems most, new Ami gas have is 
with the Amiga DOS command 
Install Install allows you write a 
otblock onto a formatted disk so that it 
auto load when the disk is inserted. Your 
cbench disk has a bootblock. 

However, if you only have a single drive, 
using Install can be a nightmare. The prob- 
lem arises when you want to install a disk in 
Dfj i the internal drive) but your Amiga 
keeps askeng for your Workbench disk which 
rt then duly tries to install The Install com- 
mand is located in the C directory on your 
Workbench disk which means that the 
kbenth disk must be in DF0 at the time 
iha Install command Is executed. 

[ Fortunately, there is a neat way round this 
problem by using the Resident command. 
Resident simply pre-loads selected files into 
memory so that they no longer need to be 
leaded horn the Workbench disk. 

Open the Shell and type in the following: 

Ed tup-tiqutiut 

This will load up ED, the Amiga's text editor 
along with the text file Startup-Sequence. 



Locate the first last Resident command and 
add below it: 

RfSidfCT >ML; >: : ] r.s l a L l PUHE 

Save the edited Startup-Sequence by 
pressing Esc, x and then Return, then reboot 
your Amiga with the Workbench disk in DFO, 
You should now be able to insert a blank 
disk in DFO when Workbench has loaded and 
run the Install command with no problem. 

aEmxpj 


If you're a beginner you're at 
the right place. Steve White 
explains how you can get the 
it s out of your Amiga home 
computer and WorkbencH

If you've used the Shell at all you will realise 
luw boring it can be typing out long- winded 
commands. And if you make a mistake you 
haw to type the bloomin' thing out again. Or 
, so h seems, 

i Once again, Workbench comes to the res- 
cue this time in the form of Aliases, An alias 
is simply a label of your choice that points 
ic a command. Let me show you a better 
example. Open you Shell and type in; 

Ed SrShfU-StirTup' 

This will load up ED with the text file Shell* 
Startup located in the S directory. This file 
actually contains the current aliases and is 
loaded every time you run the Shell Below 
the last alias type in: 

Allis q trdclt 

Save the Shell-Startup by pressing Esc, x 
d'd then Return and finally close the Shell 
window. Now open it up again and type in q 
followed by Return. The Shell should close 
again, The alias has told the Shell to 
understand q to mean enddi. 




HICH FORMAT? 


□ 


ISGUI SE 


Thanks to its user friendliness, Workbench makes formatting disks a pain- 
less procedure. Just insert a disk into DFO, click it once, and select Format 
Disk from the menus. 

If you look in the System drawer on your Workbench you'll notice an 
icon called Format as well. By running this program you are not only 
restricted to DFO but can also format your hard drive, if you have one, or 
PC disks provided you have the PCa datatype in the Datatypes drawer 
found in Devs (short for devices, which is exactly what disks drives are). 
You can still use the same options provided by the menu Format Disk 
option but with the advantage of being able to choose a particular device.

Qotal recall 

Pressing the right keys is a precarious business when 
you're new to the Amiga, and making mistakes in the Shell 
can be a problem. But by pressing the arrow up and arrow 



When you first get your Workbench the first 
thing you want to do is load it up and try out 
everything. But being too adventurerous can 
have its pitfalls, I, and many other Amiga own- 
ers. have fallen foul of the scrolling Workbench 
In Screen Mode you can alter the size of the 
Workbench display and! scroll to any areas not 
visible in the monitor dimensions with the 
mouse. Having a Workbench the size of 
Wembley Stadium sounds exciting but eats up 
precious memory, Whatever you do, don't save 
the Screen JWode preferences or you may find 
that when you reboot later on, Workbench 
won't load because ol insufficient memory. 
This is not the place for complicated solutions 
so avoid it at all costs, 


down (cursor) keys Shell will allow you to recall your pre- 
viously entered commands so that you can simply edit the 
mistakes you made previously.

IGGER IS BETTER 


If you run out of room or your Workbench desktop 
there is a way you car make the screen larger, This 
really only applies to those of you using a proper com- 
puter monitor and not the TV. 

Co to the Preh drawer and run the Overscan pro- 
gram, Select Edit Text Size and drag the four perimeter 
bo^es to their outermost limits. Click on use and then 
do the same for Edit Graphics Size. Now click on the 
Save button and you wifi find yourself with a larger 
Workbench than before. You may need to alter the 
screen settings on your monitor in order to re-position 
Workbench.

GREAT 
RECOVERY 

If you take a look in (he DOSDrivers dra- 
wer in Storage you'll notice a program 
called RAD. RAD is very similar to the RAM 
disk and is taster than floppy disk drives 
and hard drives, 

RAD is actually a recoverable RAM disk 
which keeps its contents even when you 
reboot your Amiga or it crashes. The only 
time it is emptied is when you turn 
the Amiga on and off from the power 
supply. Obviously, if you're running bom 
floppy disk RAD can prove an invaluable 
ally. 

You can copy files to and from RAD 
by simply selecting the directory RAD: 
or by double- clicking on the disk icon 
on the Workbench desktop. As an 
example: 


E*py MBtlMtliLi to rift!: 


If you want RAD to automatically be 
run every rime you boot your Amiga you 
can simply drag rts icon to the DOSDrivers 
drawer in the Devs directory, It's as simple 
as that! 



Qcons 

When you start to personalise your 
Workbench and start designing your own 
icons {everyone does it), you'll realise that 
the RAM disk can't have a disk icon attached 
to it This is because when you reboot 
your Amiga everything in RAM is erased - 
including any icons, 

Once again, there is a solution. First create 
yourself an icon in IconEdit and make sure it 
is a disk type. Now save it as RAMlton to 
your $ directory. Load your User-Startup file 
into ED as explained above, type in the 
following and then save it; 

copy >K[L: SrRMitcn tc RARrDisk .info 


This copies your RAM I con item in the S 
directory to RAM as disk-info (the name of 
disk type icons) when Workbench loads. 
Provided you have done everything right you 
should see your icon on the Workbench 
screen with Ram Disk underneath.

ETTING THE SCENE 


When you first load your Workbench disk it looks rather bland. This is because it is preset la 
display itself in only four colours. You can change this by altering the amount of colours in the ! 
ScreenMode program located in the Prefs drawer. However, you should be warned tfm 
using more colours takes more of your Amiga's memory and slows down Workbench quite] 
considerably. 

ff you have Fast memory, using more colours won't be a problem and you can customise 
your Amiga to your heart's content. Just look at how exciting Workbench can 
really be.

RIGHT FUNCTION 


Above the numerical characters on your key- 
board is a line of keys preceded by F and 
numbered from I to 10, These keys are 
normally used by games software 
but Workbench also allows you to use 
them through the FKey program in 
the Commodities drawer in the Tools 
directory, 

When you run this program, a window 
appears in which you can attach certain 
events to any of the F (Function) keys. To 
create a new key simply press the New Key 


button and type in F preceded by the key 
number By clicking on the Command button, 
you can cycle through a list of options 
regarding Workbench operations, It is even 
possible to get a program to run from an F 
key by typing in the program name and 
location in the Command Parameters box, 

To make your F key changes permanent, 
select Save Defined Keys from the menu 
You could even drag the FKey program to 
your WSStartup drawer so that it runs every 
time you boot your Amiga. 



D Vdu can attach certain Idforfctnnch functions la tha 
F1-F10 key by using They In the Commodities drawer in Toole

Your essential guide to Amiga gaming 





SYSTEM 



By Andy Maddock 


No news shocker 



t's true. I'm afraid fa 
say, although we 
are brimming with 
games as usual and 
we've even had to 
leave some out! My god. what 
is happening! As far as news is 
concerned, we're a little short. 
By the end of the month my big 
"News’ file is usually brimming 
with foxes and transcribed 


telephone conversations, but 
all I could find when l iooked 
was a hairy half -eaten apple, 
which I forgot all about - but fin- 
ished without haste, 

But don't despair! There are 
enough Doom clones coming 
out over the next few months to 
keep us going for ages. There 
have been so many, surely 
everybody is losing track of 


which one's best Hopefully 
we'll have a definitive Doom 
guide sometime dunng the 
future when we'll be looking at 
every single aspect of each: 
gam© -to reveal the champion 
of champions, Sounds exciting? 
Probably not. 

Why don't you tell us what 
you think? Write to us at the 
usual address. 


Weapons at the ready ■ More Doom. Marvellous 


We can always rely on OTM for a bit of exclusive 
news. Yes, they're back with the latest informa- 
tion on some new releases they've managed to 
latch themselves onto, 

First up is a game entitled Wotchfower which 
is basically a top-down 'Commando -style 
arcade war game There'll be a simultaneous 
two-player mode, several weapons, three dif- 
ferent types of terrain including desert, jungle 
and city, six long and challenging missions, 
adjustable skill levels, and end-of-level 
guardians. Instead of it sounding like a first in 
gaming entertainment it looks like the old 
arcade ’Commando' re visited, jazzed up and 
ready to roll. 

The game's being developed by Cyber Arts, 
a name that sounds familiar, but I can't think 
why, They are from Finland and apparently 
ore set to thrill and excite games players 
everywhere, 


A new breed 


No sooner had Alien Breed 3D hit the shelves than 
Alien Breed 3D special edition is already on its way, 
The programmer has managed to re-wrlte the 
original 3D engine and managed to get the graph- 
ics up to the level of Breathless and the brand new 
Nemac IV. Like Breathless, Alien Breed 3D will Include 
minor additions such as being able to look up 
and down as well os major additions such as o level 
editor, 

There will be supports for graphic cards such as 
Picasso II, and you will be able to alter the pixel ratio 
from 2:2, 2:1 to 1:1, This is essential because some 
peope prefer to play fast on a small screen, or dismiss the graphics for a full sized 
screen. It's all down to a matter of taste and opinion. 

You will be able to load all the original levels from Alien Breed 3D into the editor 
and twist and change them as much as you like - or even design completely new 
ones, Not only that, you will be able to draw your own aliens, add mission text, and 
even make new sound effects, 

From these screenshots il looks like this Is going to better the original Alien Breed 3D 
and that got 91 per cent in our review. Can the best get better? We'll find out next 
month when well hopefully bring you a full preview 



Guildhall Leisure have Finally got around to releas- 
ing their data disk for Gloom. It’s called Gloom 
Deluxe and features new levels, beasts and oil 
sorts of things, 

The whole interface has now been re-written. 
For example, you can now play via a modem, 
choose a screen resolution as well as a screen-i 
mode, and even play in a Workbench window. 
You can now use the virtual i glasses as well as var- 
ious graphic cards. It is ECS and AG A compatible 
and you can basical ly customise it completely to 
suit your own needs, finally, you can finally play it 
in super Hi- res. 

The whole thing looks like a vast Improvement 
over the last and hopefully we r ll give it a full 
low-down in the next month or two in our Doom 
special. Hurrah! 



The sequel 
has now 
arrived 
with more 
missions 
than ever 
before 


4 s you can see from this 
screenshot, the sequel to Ation 
Breed 3D is looking pretty good 


The whole 
interface 
is now 
c ompteteiy 
configurable, 
so you can 
finally play it 
how you 
want to

Even more Doom 




'es. I'm afraid so. Just when you thought we'd shut the door 
l the face of Doom clones comes Nemac IV, We are cur- 
sntly chasing up a review copy so we'll hopefully bring you a 
review next month, ft's by a German team, and pro- 
jrammed by Stefon Schlott - a name previously unfamiliar to 
3 lot of you, including me, 

Basically, yes, it's another Doom clone, although this one 

appears to be slightly 


(Jemac IV Will be available very 
.non. Keep watching these pages 
or a full review 


mare special then the 
rest. For Instance, the 
new virtual i glasses will 
be compatible, and vir- 
tual reality is something 
which Doom on the PC 
has yet to feature. 

We saw this demo on 
a recent upload from Aminef. The graphics ran at a horrific 
rate and the sound effects were the best yet on ony other 
Doom clone The explosions were pretty graphic and it plays 
far better because you have to collect cades from various 
computers dotted around the maze to unlock the doors 

Also on Nemac IV you can select the screen size from 
absolutely anything as well os the resolution 


Take a note of the w^apan you carry. 
It s slightly batter than the weedy 
pistef you always get in Doom 



Gloom competition results 


Hurrah! We are pleased to announce that after 
sitting through the many mail bags of entries we 
rvave found a winner to ouf Gloom competitor! , 
Admittedly, It did take us around 2 or 3 minutes to 
actually find one. And as we promised, we have 
printed the winning entry. 

We received some excellent entries including 
one from James Sfanstield from Jersey who sent 
us a disk! Wow, rt was a very scary disk - it was a 
grey, Clever that When our Technical Editor sug- 
gested we see what was actually on the disk, 
there was another monster 1 Blimey he r s spent 
some time thinking up tha* 

Another good entry was Yorkshire lad, Liam 
Walker's Angel of Death, He drew it from all 
different angles and for a 13-year old it was a 
cracking effort! 

Michael Garclo’s Aguantos was also very 
good And there were three of the funniest entries 
ever. Firstly David Torres from Watford and Javier 
Ospma from New York kindly set us in their entry 
form without an entry, Good try lads, but th© 
sheer audacity of it will win you absolutely noth- 
ing And although Ben Finowski's entry didn't 
actually win, check out the witty humour. In sec- 


Asa 

Ma rgctt's

end and third place we shall award Liam Walker 
and James Sfonsfieid for their efforts with a copy 
of Gloom. 

Finally, the winner is,,, Asa Marge tts and his 
marvellous Specie Congratulations - the CD32 
and Gloom will shortly be in the post. Be patient 
though!

Ifs been q nit of a Doom test over the 
last 'lew months. and after hearing exclu- 
sive news that around three are panned 
to 09 developed over the forthcoming 
months. IT looks like we'll have To do

Only two of the Doom clones nave 
realty shined so for - Fears and Alien 
Breed 3L> i ieel mat Fears was and still is 
the best, although, not many people 
actually agree with me-.

Flight of ttie Amazon Queen 


Score: 93% Issue 94 



After months of speculation, Flight of the 
Amazon Queen touched down with 
quite □ bony, knocking up a highly 
respectable score ol 93%. Although 
many garners smi believe Thai Monkey 
Island holds o special place In the heart, 
you can't help bul moke room for 
FOTAQ Featuring superbly ammo l ed 
sequences and sarcastically pleasurable 
dialogue. Flight of the Amazon Queen Is 
and always will be excellent fun 


Alien Breed 3D 


Score: 91% Issue 94 

this Doom cions arrived very shortly afler 
Foots and Gloom. The developers were 
none other than team 17 so we knew 
this was going ta be a quality product. 
This is by tar the most Doom like gorre 
on the Amiga 


Leading Lap 


Score Issue 95 

After MicroPros© announced Formula 
One Grand Prtx 2 was only going lo be 
developed on the PC, a huge grey 
cloud covered the sunshine that over- 
whelmingly shone an Amiga gomesplay- 
ers everywhere - crushing all napes. 

That was until Leading Lap was 
released and what a cracker I Featuring 
some excellent polygons which shit lea 
at a horrific rote. Leading Lap was the 
premium racing game 


Coala 


Score 91% Issue 95 

Empire Interactive have- finally dipped 
their toe into the stream of Amiga 
games to bring another quality product 
into the world. 

Coalo was its name and cuteness

Apachp helicopters and loads of mis-

waiting a long, long time for this sequel. But their 
patience has finally paid off and the gome is 
here, packed with enhancements and new 
challenges, 

The original apparently sold In excess of □ 


quarter of o million copies and if this is anything 
to go by, it's successor should attract a

and you will need to choose carefully because 
you are stuck with them for the rest of the 
adventure. 

Setting off along the dimly lit corridors, you

characters gets destroyed because you can 
always bring them back to life In the resurrection

you do this, the Champion will be weaker than 
before. 

And that's just a smalt slice of the game. There 
is absolutely tons to it and will keep the most 
hardened of adventurers happy for a good 
while, On top of this, you also have your magic 
spells to cast and the many monsters to deal with 
- which, incidentally, are different from last time 
in that you can employ tactics, particularly of the 
running away kind (my own favourite when 
dealing with such foes)

I must admit, the game did pleasantly 
surprise me and It wasn't as bland as 
I'd at first feared, Thrill seekers won't 
find, the ultimate adrenaline rush here 
but a bit of patience pays dividends 
and you do feel well rewarded for your 
troubles. Some of the battles con be a 
bit tedious but you can run away 
should you want to, 

The graphics have kept the original 
style but this does leave it oil looking 
rather dated arid some of the monsters 
are quite laughable. Saying that, 
though, the improved atmospherics do 
something to increase realism (Km not 
sure what exactly, because no matter 


how hard I try I can't convince myself 
that I'm a muscle-bound warrior called 
Torham), Sounds and graphics work 
well In portraying the surreal world and 
the overall look is effective 

The gome is rather more expensive 
than usual so you may want to lake this 
into account Put Is this way - if you're 
a fan of the genre and have waited tor 
this for a long time then you won't be 
disappointed, but on the other hand, if 
you're little more than a casual admir- 
er; then think carefully - it's not a mod- 
ern game, it takes patience and 
appears quite dated. All I he same, It's 
nice to see an old concept revived.

Worms doesn't have on Intriguing plot. 
It doesn't have high-tech graphics, and 
neither does it have sophisticated 
gameplay. So why is it perhaps one of 
the most appealing and addictive 
games of all time, and why is it appear’ 
ing on so many platforms? What is its

countless others in the office want to 
sneak back for just one more go? It's 
hard to fathom out - i mean the game- 
play relies on the age old Scorched

most advanced, but somehow it works, 
and works very well indeed, 

The worms have a character all of

worm being blasted into oblivion. It's 
brilliant as a multi-player game too and 
perfect party entertainment should you

H t this point in the review, I'm supposed 
to begin with a nice introduction - pos- 
sibly talk about the first few versions of 
SWOS. or even the other bizarre fruit 
versions. But no, What's the point in 
building up a game that needs no build up, 

Same might say Sensible World of Soccer lost its 
appeal after a while because of the bugs arid 
bizarre crashes. Admittedly, I never experienced 
any crashes although the major bug that most 
people found Irritating was the monetary system 
there were ways of recruiting 'free' 10 million

face of the earth, and no matter how many goals

Sensible planning 


Sensible Soccer has been going for a 
long time now The first version ever seen 
appeared on various cover disks through- 
out the Industry and to be honest, it was 
pretty unplayable. 

Then came the first official Sensible 
Soccer which was reputed at that lime to 
be the best Amiga gome ever, Then fol-

ree and updated teams. After this came 
several bizarre versions - which aba

version whereby you could control either

I fas was □ Bulldog Blighty version which 
pitted England against Germany - not 
just in the world cup, but In 1944 as well! 

The most recent version is undoubte-

on the Amiga. And now it's time to wel-

into your old version of SWOS. The first obvious

all the new signings and values are included. And

youngsters like Robbre Fowler can now successf- 
ully be achieved You play these 
on a pitch reminiscent of the first 
Sensible Soccer - hardly any sound 
and no stadium, 

There are actual in-game differ- 
ences to this new version, but only 
small ones. Your players' names 
now appear in the top left-hand 
corner of the screen: you can 
now head the ball without ridicu- 
lously diving about the place; 
the crowd now jump up and 
down like proper fans should; 
when the players score they will 
show their jubilation with their 
arms; it's now a lot easier to 
run around players, especially 
if you're controlling someone 
like Alan Shearer; and to top It 
all off, with a quick press of 
the joystick you can now 
inform a player if he should 
come and collect the ball, 
or wait on the spot so if you 
want to pass the ball out to 
the wing, it will go to the 
wing 

The differences are 
merely cosmetic and 
affect the gameplay min- 
imally, although if you 
were to return to your 
original game you'd miss 
these slight changes an 
awful lot, 


If you're a real ton of Sensible Soccer, then this 
is an absolutely essential purchase. Please 
keep me out of the ‘Ifs not worth it' debate,

believes all these features should have been In

The programmer for Breathless is called Alberto

a long lime His past projects include T-Racer 
which he made for the Amiga a while ago. 
Pierpaolo Di Maio Is the team manager He 
works as a musician and worked out the map 
and sound effects for Breathless. Finally, 
Gianluca Abbate is 15-years old, yep, 15-years 
old and designed the 2D graphics and textures. 
Sounds like a bit of a genius to me! 

flectables, and by that I don't mean Star Wars 
ures or Dinky cars, I mean power-ups. weapons, 
rnmo, and health, What rarely features in most 
iga Doom clones is the finding of keys which 
let you open the colour correspond- 
door, in various other clones, you 
ually find a switch which will be 
red colour and by switching it 
reen, will open another J 
or somewhere else in the 
aze. 

Breathless allows you to

e screen, you'll be I 
e to log-on at a corn- ' 
ter terminal and buy 
eap on boosts, new 
fiuns. health and keys, A bit 
e a computerised Tesco. 

Another feature which you 
an easily perform Is looking up 
r down. Doom on the PC looked 
etty weird because when you saw a 
onster on a top platform high above your- 





This screen looks a tot like Doom, because you 
can look outside through a gap In lire watt 

self, shooting from your eye-level could 
easily kill it - realistically, this isn't pos- 
sible. However, Breathless lets you 
^ look up or down at any angle to 
see the enemy. Most of the 
time you will enter a huge 
room and find what looks 
like a drained swimming 
pool with a number of 
beasts in the bottom, 
Looking down enables 
you to pick them oft one 
by one. 

However, there is o 
downside, The view is 
r quite difficult to toggle 
between and it's hard to 
shoot everything from the one 
angle, This, however, is about 
the only niggle I can find, There is 
one other but I wouldn't refer to it as 
a niggle, You see. nearly all the walls ore at 
right angles, giving the game much of a boxy feel, 
but it's only when you actually think about it that 
it hos any effect on you, By the way, I didn't even 
notice until someone else kindly pointed it out. 


This is supposed to be night time. That’s 
why your vision is slightly impaired and 
alt you can see is the sky light! 


The final word 


Considering this isn't the first Doom 
clone, you'd expect it to be at least 
above overage after seeing the other 
efforts, and Breathless Is above aver- 
age in most woys. Whether it will suit 
your needs is another matter Although 
there may be four different worlds with 
five sub- worlds. If still won't really lost 
you that long. Okay, so maybe it is a 
challenging game, but you get a pass 


£ Breathless 
features some 

excellent 

graphics and 
sound effects, 
and it plays 
like a dream y 


word after you finish a level, lei ting you 
carry on. so you could probably finish in 
less than a week. 

That's about my only gripe. 
Otherwise, Breathless features some 
excellent graphics agd sound effects, 
and it ploys like a dream. This certainly 
ranks alongside Fears and Al ; en Breed 
3D - there's absolutely no doubt in my 
mind.

You can scroll through alt the available craft- Sadly, 
though, you can't play as an alfen and invade Earth! 


Hmm. 


f I can remember rightly, Gomefek's 
lost release was Brutal: Paws of Fury, 
and the release of Star Crusader her- 
olds their next adventure. Basically, it's 
a big epic space mission, 
one of those that takes months 
to complete. So if you want a 
nice relaxing, frustration 
free 1996. don't even 
bother reading this. 

The first thing that 
made me groan was the 
1 1 disks required! for instal- 
lation, A lengthy de-pack

grabbed myself a copy of the dally 
newspaper and a cup of tea Thi9 i9 ^ 9&r *y awaited flight part, it’s strange looks from, around til

Noooo, noooa, it can't be! 

About 30 minutes later, after pander-

managed to wipe ju 
enough space clean fi

Manual read 


I'm not really the sort of person who'll sift 
■n rough the manual to find little bits of Informa- 
tion - well, maybe I should have but I didn't. 
And I knew if I did look in the manual, there was 
no way I'd find an option entitled 'Change 
game completely. My hopes were dashed! I 
was upset, l was glad, because at least I hadn't 
spent about €30 on It,

Hurrah, it's all Installed! As I double-clicked on the

me reboot deja vu. "It's going to crash! It is, it is,.. 
It did I II Naooo.' To my surprise, it didn't, and with- 
out haste it displayed a requester: This will reboot 
your machine' Well thank-you very much. 

As soon as the hard drive light stopped flicker- 
ing like an epileptic Christmas light. Star Crusader 
had landed, Boy, was I happy - relieved too! 
There followed some nice introduction screens, 
and a very long wait for the game to appear. 
Another cup of tea'? Oh yes, please 

When I returned, a strange alien-like object 
was displayed on-screen and after careful

Here's a guy that'll address you and tell 
you many more useful things. And still , 
you donh know what you're doing 

were damn near unreadable, A quick guess later 
and I was escorted to what looked like a mission 
briefing room - indeed It was! There were some 
digitised faces at the fop of the screen announc- 
ing something. They did go on for a while, and to 
be completely honest. I didn't take much notice 
of the dialogue. If I had. you certainly wouldn't 
be reading this now. 

After this, a cool guy on o computer-like swivel 
choir showed me what looked like some more 
mission briefings and led me to some more 
options. Blimey, I thought there's a lot to this - 
and I haven't even done anything yet! 

When I finally got out Into space. I was 
actually pretty disappointed, Although there was 
a nice ray- traced intro bit that lasted about 0.75 
seconds, I was left severely despondent, I didn't 
seem to have much control over the spaceship, 
and even after realising the mouse wasn't 
plugged in, I still didn't have much control. The 
scrolling was extremely jerky, and I hod to check 
that a) the accelerator board was in and. b) If it 
was working 

What made my misery complete was that I 
couldn't even get out of the game when 
I wanted to - it was as if It had grabbed me 
through the monitor and said ‘ploy meT I 
couldn't put it down, probabfy because l was tn 
the hope of it getting better - either that or a 
power cut. 


Final word 


I will apologise If you were 
expecting o high flying space 
epic, accompanied by on 
informative, factual review, If 
i d told you everything about 
the gome and then said it 
was utter rubbish, what's the 
point? ft a friend told you a 


really boring story, would you 
ask him to tel! it again, only in 
more detail. No? 1 didn't think 
so. 

My job is not to build-up the 
game until it sounds like the 
best thing ever It is to inform 
you of how it ploys. If it's worth 


the money, and most of all, if 
It's any good. And that's what I 
believe i have done. 

I'm being absolutely straight 
with you now - don't believe 
the hype. What hype? I hear

the next few lines for, Well, believe It or 
not, this is a relevant intro/tenuous link because 
software company Vulcan have taken this theme 
and used it in their latest game, Called Hill Sea 
Lido, lt r s a seaside management simulator - 
sounds a little odd. I mean what possible work is 
involved in managing a stretch of beach? Well, 
it's a whole lot more complicated than you might 
think, and there Is plenty of work involved as a 
budding business entrepreneur 

You have 20 metres of beach and promenade 
to do with what you want plus the running of the 
Pier Theatre, and the aim is to expand your deso- 
late stretch of beach into a money-making 
resort, You must buy shops, build attractions,, and 
keep the place tidy. Staff must be hired too, from 
the lifeguard to the guy that walks around with a 
sandwich board advertising the shows You need 


Let’s go to work 


During the gome you will need to hire 
casual labour to keep the place running 
smoothly. You should aim to keep your 
beech and promenade as tidy as passL 
trie and to do this you can hire Refuse 
Specialists Don't forget to collect the 
money from your shops and facilities - 
you con send out your Cash Man and 
the money will then be transferred to 
your bank However, it may also be wise 
to hire Wide boy Securities to protect him 
whilst he's doing this. 

The safety of the swimmers is impor- 
tant too, so a life Guard can be calied 
upon to keep an eye out. And when 
you've booked one of the many talents 
tor your show, it pays to advertise, so 


regularly hire the Advertisers to walk 
around the beach to tel! everyone 
about the weekly entertainment.

D ennis gomes on the Amiga have never 
ready made an impact on the market. 
In fact, the only game lean remember 
that was any good was Advantage 
Tennis - programmed by a foreign 
company I think, It was a sort of 3D simulation/ 
career game using wire frames. 

Recently, i wrote a preview for another new 
game called Center Court, and I moaned about 
Tennis being one of those less popular sports - 
well, at least not as popular as football. And to be 
quite frank, it's a bit boring as a spectator sport. 
Alright, so it may be good to actually ploy, but as 
a spectator all you can do is watch. 

For instance, at a football match, shouting and 
tumping up and down like escaped monkeys 
seems to have an effect on the team you're 



The character select screen shows 
all the characters you can select 
from their respective countries 


supporting and if they win. if feels like you help-ec 
them. If you try that at a tennis game, the bloke 
sitting in the baby's high chair just tells you to br 
quiet - just so the players can concentrate. Wefll

Fit for anyone 


The first thing you notice about 
Super Tennis Chomps is its pol 
Ished feel. I! feels like someone 
has actually taken the time to 
present on Amiga gome the 
punters actually will wont to 
pay. There wasn't really any 
media hype of any description, 
;r just soft of crept up behind us 
when we thought the future 
of games was going to be 


disappointing. Audiogenic 
could never stand accused of 
releasing holt hearted games 
to make a quick buck 

As you can see from all their 
post products. Audiogenic 
have always come up with the 
goods and managed to cafer 
for all types of gamesplayers 
Super Tennis Champs is no 
exception, and without delving 


too much into the statistical 
side, I will undoubtedly appeal 
to everyone because it's one 
of those games you can sit 
dawn and play, especially 
□gainst a friend The two -player 
enjoyment stretches if to the 
limit - In fact many office 
arguments have been resolved 
with a few sets of Super Tennis 
Champs, 







The tffte screen shows some eicerieJif 
character*, tha* are so urefl drawn and took good 



be able to hit a tennis baTI really hard! I have to 
apologise about my attitude, but surely you can 
understand why [ feel like this. 


The second Is merely a cross-hair which you 
place where you want the ball to bounce. Also, 
the players alt have their own statistics and attrib- 



Super Tennis Champs by Audiogenic is 
another in the long line of post 
Christmas games, including 
Odyssey, which should be out 
tow., and Exile - the rejuve- 
ited classic space romp 
Jo me. Super Tennis 
Champs looks extremely 
ke Super Tennis on the 
per Nintendo, and the 
ay the sprites are drawn 
instantly recognisable. 

(t also managed to 
of oh up a credible 90 per 
enf and more in most 
agazlnes. 

The characters in the game 
I had their own personalities - 
f like Super Tennis Champs has, 
r example, there's Buzz from 
ermany and Synex from 


ufes so the player you will pick will have a 
varied effect on your success. 

The Grand Slam tour takes you 
□U over the warid playing at vari- 
ous venues, and before you 
art the tournament you are 
split randomly against all the 
other competitors from 
around the world. 
Depending on the venue, 
you will either play on a 
hard, clay or grass court. 
Before you begin to get 
worried, there's an option 
for you to save your game so 
you can continue at a later 
date if things get a little tough, 
The options screen allows you 
to change settings such as the ser- 
vice. you can keep all the players on 


Hot only can you ptay singles, fcut the 


the some skill, and can oiler

Tltors, You are then ranked in a table and the

ou get. 

The actual playing pad of Super Tennis 


overview of the players you 
get to play with and against, so you can pinpoint 
their strengths and weaknesses. Finally, there's 
the option to load in more characters from disk. 


Final word

harder - you have to hold the fire button

At the moment it must oe about 92 per cent complete - all that's 'waiting to be 
added is the obvious presentational screens, and features such as o manual and 
box The gameplay is. set about right, dl the competitions are accessible, so from 
what I've seen if J s going to be one of the best games this year - even though it's 
hardy started.

because the horizon sometime 
gets rn the way 


Racing 


G 


uildhall leisure have been pushing 
releases out like nobody's business, A 
few months back Gloom received 81 
per cent from yours truly because 
it was one of the first 
attempts at a Doom-like game. 

Then followed Fears, which 
although it was slower, was 
excellent fun Hot on the tali 
of these two releases Is 
Extreme Racing, a sort of 
first-perspective view rac- 
ing game, which looks a 
lot like the SNES version of 
Super Mario Kart - which is 
no bad thing! 

If I remember rightly, I 
previously saw some 



much better than Mario Kart was that four pic 
could race at the same time on one Ami{ 
connecting two machines would enable eigfl 
players to battle it out all at the same f ir 
5o If you've got plenty of friends 
like some friendly rivalry, Extren 
Racing could be just wha| 
're looking for 
Although It is still a fair wc 
off completion it's tod 
pretty impressive, 
graphics ore very o{ 
toon like - working \ 
with the backgroi, 
and track graphics -i 



the best thing by 
about it is the fact 
you can customise 
J? completely 
^ On our preview ver# 
there was an editor olid 
^ you to edit the tracks, and it 
a comprehensive applied

and place them on t

on the complete package, although they 
to have already planned some data disks vA 
new tracks and the editor depending on 
game's success. 

When | mentioned you could customise 9 


screenshots of this uploaded 
to Amine. Back then It wasn't 
signed to a publisher or any-^ra 
thing, and to be honest, it did look ^ 
pretty good. It was titled 'XTR' which 
obviously meant Extreme 
Racing - although If was spelt 
Xtreme Racing. Gosh, how 
we manipulate the English I 
anguage! 

I was always a big fan of Super Mario Kart on 
the 5NES and when I saw the screenshots of 'XTR 
I could see a lot of similarities. However, instead of 
the excellent Mario characters, Extreme Racing 
featured different cars - a Police car, a VW 
Beetle, a Ferrari, and more. What made this so

Get your mates round 


The last racing gome I saw on the 
Amiga was Turbo Trax. and that was 
pretty goad, except it didn't really offer 
anything new that stood out from the 
rest, 

As far as I know, the only game that's 
relatively similar to Extreme Racing is 
OTM's Virtual Karting - and thahs only 


because the tracks are manipulated In 
the same way. Extreme Racing is look- 
ing far more professional than Virtual 
Karting, and if a few tweaks are made 
before the full version appears, it could 
well be one of the finest multiplayer 
games of the year We'll have to wait 
and see. 



This is the log*. Pretty isn’t it? Yes very 
pretty i Anct no, I'm not running ouf of 
things to write about’ 

difficulty levels as well as cup races and the 
aforementioned championship, 

You will be able to race around a series of 
themed tracks including water world, radioac- 
tive world, normal roads, and space tracks 
where you have to stay on the track, 
presumably because you're in orbit. 

As with Marla Kart, there J s a battle mode 
where you chase your opponent around □ 
track, with the idea of smashing him up - rather 
than completing laps. It’s pretty similar to the 
Mario Kart version whereby three balloons are 
attached to your kart and you must pop your 
opponents balloons. As it proudly states on the 
in-game instructions, 'It's Mario Kart - only not 
as cuteh Too right mate. 

The characters you can choose from are 
pretty sketchy at the moment, although from 
what I can make out there is a funny bloke, a 
kid. a monster, a policeman, a woman, a cool 
guy. a Chinese man, and a green monster. They 
may change - hopefully, they will. 

Hopefully, there will be full race replays so 
you can watch where you went wrong and 
why, and thankfully. Extreme Racing will be HD 
Installable, 


Final word 


Super Mario Kart, was and always will be, one of 
the finest racing games on any format - ever, If 
Extreme Racing can be half as good, then It 
looks like Guildhall Leisure and Black Magic are 
going to be riding high in the charts again, so 
soon after their success of Fears and Gloom. All 
you have to do is wait for the full review, which 
should be next month - space allowing. 

As for the actual game itself, i played it on a 
A 1 200 with a Blizzard 1220 and it was very 
impressive, especially when altering same 
detail and playing around with the frames per 
second. 


^ You will be 
able to race 
around a 
series of 
themed tracks 
including 
water world, 
radioactive 
world, normal 
roads, and 
space tracks *

at Workbench's 
menus 



Would you 
like to see 
the menu? 


S O, no-one got any problem* formatting 
disk*? Good. This month I thought we 
would cover the menu syslem that 
AmigoDOS uses an Workbench. In my 
opinion Workbench's menus are the best of the bur 
rroi^i operating systems lhat most pecole are bmiliar 
wilh. The Mac's mouse only has one burton so you 
have to dick at the lop c" the screen to get menus to 
appear,, and the litles are there all the lime, taking 
up space that could be used br something else, 
Although Windows supports three button mice, 
most applications si I use the left mouse button to do 
everything, like the Mac. Menu tides are a iso on con- 
stant di-splay and hove 1o be clicked on so appear, 
The menus in Windows are even worse when ir 
comes to keyboard shortcuts Be ih the Mae and the 
Amigo use Fairly standard keys for commonplace 
operations, tike Amiqa-Q Far qgil, white Windows 
uses the really obvious shortcut Al«-F4 Pa exit an 
application. 

The Atari ST's operating system is based around 
GEM, one of the first GUI systems, and is pretty poor 
compared to the others. To gel at menus on an ST, 
oil you have to do is move your mouse up to the top 
of the screen Bd this can be a source of annoyance 
as you pop menus open unintentionally and slow 
down your work. 

But where the Amigo really scores is in its unique 
ability to select more than one menu item m a single

Backdrop AS - the backdrop command allows you 
to turn on or off the main Workbench window- Tins

When you doulife -click on on icon if opens a win- 
dow in the normal fashion, but you con impress 
people with the speed of your mot bine by opening 
a load of windows and then clicking them to the 
bock of the morn Workbench window. Then, when 
you double-click on a drive icon whose window 
you already hove open, the window will pop to the 
front of the Workbench window instantly, making 
it look as though you have a super fast hard drive. 
If yoi,‘ wont to get rid of the backdrop window 
on o permanent basis, you should turn on the 
backdrop item and then, making sure you have 
no windows selected on Workbench, use the 
"snapshot window' item in the Window menu. 


You con type a shell command into the text gadget 
that appears and any results will appear in a text 
window. You can use this menu item to open o 
shell window by typing * new shell' into the text 
gadget that appears.

cose you don'! know how to perform ibis Feat, I 5 
simplicity itself 

Try il For yourself by fd lowing the example I jusi 
used Open a window thai usually contains files 
without icon* like the RAM disk,, for example. Now 
hold down the right mouse button os usua' to access 
the Window menu, but instead of just lehing go efrt 
when you are over the right Option, click the lef* 
mouse button once instead. Click the left mouse but 
ion on the show all files' Hem first, iken on the View 
by name' option. Lastly, let go oF the right mouse but- 
ton when yog ore on the ' select contents' menu item 
and the menu wiil disappear back up at ihe lap nl 
the screen, Your RAM. disk window w I rush adout 
showing the files,, changing them into text, and then 
selecting them all. 

Now | know thoi this demonstration doesn't acli> 
oily serve very many useful purposes, but yae may 
well have programs like PageStream that have mem 
options thal can have lick marks nexi la them to indi- 
cate that they have been selected You cor* now 
select more ihan one op I ion at once, rother than 
selecting one, wailing For the operation to occur, 
going back to the menu, wailing, going bock to he 
menu, and sc on. 

So let's hove a good look ot the menus provided 
by Workbench and check out whai options they pro- 
vide. While we are doing this you will notice that 
some menu options are 'ghosted' - the lex! looks 
funny. This is a visual indication of o menu item thal 
cannot be used at the present lime. For m stance, I 
you htove no windows open or selected, rhen there s 
little point in using the 'show all files' menu item, so it 
is ghotied,

of the Amiga's 
program scatter

brain 



o 


ver ihe next few issues I am going to be 
taking a look as The routines hhah ore used 
ta load and fun Amiga programs. The 
i starting pdnl For these chsC-USStaflJ ore 

+e F les used 1o store an executable program on disk, 
in office words tHe so-called AmigaDOS 'Load Files'. 

A load file consists of o number of units known as 
k-nki' which, amongst of her things, contain program 
code, static data such os graphics and text, and 
details of any uninitialised space needed by the pro- 
gram. When a user runs such a program, either From 
rte- Workbench af by typing its name at a Shell win- 
dow, on AmigoDOS loading routine is brought into 
action, 

Tk§ First thing that happens is that o header block 
■S read and the space for a hunk tabto, used during 
+0 loading operations, is allocated Immediately after 
if, 5 , appropriate amounts of memory For the vgnous 
code, data and bss [uninitialised space; hunks pre- 
sent in ihe load file are allocated, with the hunk con- 
ients being r&ad Into the acquired memory blacks. 
Beccj'e separate memory allocations fat ihe various 
hunks are made, the hgrvk information basically just

Having got the seglist equivalent of a load file safely into memory, the DOS library 
provides routines, including one called Create ProcfJ, which shows file code to be 
brought to life os a separate process. There are, however, either uses for the loading 
routines - you con, for example , pass files containing just image data structures 
through the conventional assemble/link stages, producing graphics data that can be 
scoffer loaded . When if comes to using functions like Intuition's Drawtmcge{} and so 
on you do, however, need to be able to locate the storf of the real data within each 
segment* 

individual segments which make up a seglist ore tied together by means of point- 
ers fBCPl pointers] with a NUtL value signifying the end of the seglist chain. If we 
then rake the starting BPTfl seglist pointer provided by a routine such os LoodSegfh 
left shift it by two bit positions and add 4, we end with on address that is the start of 
the real segment information. Here's a typical piece of example code far scatter 
loading a load file into memory and locating the entry point of the first segment'

As for as tile loading and seglist creation is concerned that's basically it - the 
AmrgoDOS routines take care of all the difficult stuff. The next thing to do if take a 
look at how seglists con be used and, needless to soy, this part of the story comes 
next month.

AmigoDOS has its roots in an operating 
system called Tripos , much of which was 
written in a language colled BCPL 
Amiga coders in general do not hove to 
worry about BCP1 except for the fact 
that it uses a form of tong word address- 
ing based on the normal 680xQ-styie 
memory addresses divided by four* If, 
therefore, an Amiga DOS function is Spec- 
ified as returning a SPTP, i.e. a BCPL 
type pointer, you have ta multiply that 


address by four be fore using it* 

If an AmigaDOS function returns a 
BPTfl. then any equivalent deallocation 
function will also expect a BPTfl as welt 
This being so, it's usually best to store 
these pointers in BCPL form and then 
convert them fust before use like fhisi

Paul Overaa explains 
how ARexx's 
de-bugging facilities 
can be used to 
errors in scripts 





ebuaging and testing can be arve af ihe 
mosi Nme-consuming stages of any soft- 
ware development, end AR,es.x .scripts 
ore, of course, no exception to this. The 
of proper structured design techniques, modular 
ragromm ng, top down oevelopmenl and so on 
ps, but it will nol eliminate all the problems. No 
Iter how conscientious a programmer you are, 
me mistakes are bound to be mode 
Sometimes problems will be due to simple syntax 
errors coursed by, say, a basic misunderstanding of 
w a stotemgnl should he written, or □ dyslexic 
lip at the keyboard - tn advertently writing Uo pred- 
en you meant Upperfl for example. Or wriling 0 
mi-colon when you meant to write o colon 
ause you didn't hit the shift key ot the right time. 
Such mistakes ore usually considered harmless 
a use ihey ore easily Found and therefore easily 
rected 

ARexx is very good in this resped and not 
ly wtll i« identify most errors but you can be tairly 
ure that any ARexx program which gels io a 
ru noble stage ii going to be nigh on ICO per cent 
tactically correct. 

If, whilsl developing a script, you get past the 
rd syntax error slage and your program seems 
b run in some Fashion, then often you wi I be home 
erd dry. Occasionally, however, ihirtgs will go 
ng - o program may run io a point and ihen for 
no obvious reason may just fail to behave as 
pected- It's at this stage thal we enter the rea?m 
ol debugeing proper and ore of the most importonl 
s available to the modern programmer is easily 
ble trace facilities. 

ARexx supports two bo sic modes of tracing: 
stfy r there is the normal or 'nan-interactive' Iraq- 
g mode which simply allows trace information Io 
fce viewea Secondly, there is on ' ntenactive' mode 
which allows the programmer ta step through Ihe 
ccogram and interact with il os the iroce proceeds 
(via stdin or sterr if availoble| II is possib H la look 
al the contents of variables, re-execuie douses, and 
even type in instructions which are subsequently 
^.ecuted as though ihey were a par) of ihe 
urogram itself. 



ALL 

Traces off clauses as they ore executed. 

BACKGROUND 

This mode is the some as OFF except for the fact that the TS 
support program con not override it. 

COMMANDS 

■ 

All command clauses ore traced before being sent fo the external 
hash Any non* sera return codes ore also displayed. 

ERRORS 

Commands which result in a non -zero error code ore traced. 

INTERMEDIATES 

Clouses and all intermediate results of expression evaluation are 
traced (including values ofvoriab/es, the results of function calls 
and expansion of compound names, 

LABELS 

Traces labels reached either in sequence or via flow control 
statements . 

NORMAL 

Default tracing mode. Similar to the ERRORS made except that an 
error ceiling value (set using the OPTIONS F A FLAT instruction 
form) is used to determine whether or not an error trace should 
be generated. 

Off 

Tracing is turned off by this option although this situation can be 
overridden by ARexx's T5 program. 

RESULTS 

Traces the results of every expression that is evaluated. 

SCAN 

Similar to All but it is a parse-only scan so the program does not 
actually get executed, 

Table |j Option s avallabl* with TRACf instwclipn 

The 

TRACE INSTRUCTION 


An AR«*x tracing 
conaete window in 
action. 

wmm 


The syntax of this instruction takes the 
general form... 

TRACE [symbol | ttringS I [[VAlUEf expression]) 

which means that three basic forms of 
the instruction exist , namelyt 

TRACE symbol 

TRACE string! 

TRACE [VALUE] expression 

where the symbol,, string or expression 
must either represent (or reduce to) a 
positive or negative integer, or be one of 
the options for a single letter abbrevia- 
tion] shown in tab/e I. Negative numeric 
values, incidentoWy, indicate o ' suppres- 
sion count', which turns ARexx’s tracing 
off for a given number of clauses. A pos- 
itive value given during interactive trac* 
ing indicates that a number af interactive 
pauses for input' are to be skipped 
over. 

7he trace output itself can be sent to 
one of three places; Directly bock fo std* 
out [which for programs hunched from 


a CU/SheH console is the Cll/Shell win- 
dow itself]; to a file associated with a 
standard error (stderr} file handle (this 
can af course be another console win- 
dow); or io ARexx's Global Tracing 
Console (a special console which con be 
opened using the KO utility program}. 

Before deciding where trace in forma* 
tian should be sent, ARexx checks for 
the existence of on stderr file handle. If 
you have opened a window or file tied 
to this fife handle, or have opened the 
Global fracing Console fwhieh is auto* 
mafic oily attached ta stdetr} f then ARexx 
will send its information to this destina- 
tion, otherwise it will send its output 
through the standard output channel 
fsfdouf). The benefit of having trace 
information sent through a separate 
channel is simple - it avoids having 
trace output and normal program output 
intermixed at the same window. 

Of course , what we need now is a few 
examples of these facilities in action to 
drive home the ideas, Needless to say 
this is exactly wbof's coming in the next 
issue!

appear between reality and ihe fevered 
overblown prolongs of some computer jouroof- 
iste. tf you were lo believe everything you were 
i listen 1 o, we should a I be ivir-g in this amazing 
te called Cyberspace,, zooming al break neck

fd b za^re abstract worlds - all presented with 
hes that wouh she me tap-of-the-range Silicon 
ahic moch'fltes Not Ihot you would hove time to 
and admire such □ drool-inducing scene os you 
: d be having cyber sex with hundreds of luscious, 
psiiing ready and waiting sex vixens, from all 
neri of the globe, 

Sounds good to me - i cannot wait 10 gel o slice 
;l liot coke, Unfortunately, the reality is a linle more 
~wn lo Earth Lei's Face it, you're lucky if you can 
rhe NetScape page in under five seconds, bul ii 
ms I ha I many people, when talking about the 
terror, live in this possibly hallucinogenically- 
ced fantasy future, 

Ihe icing on the cake came when wenching o eer- 
3s r« British computer aame$ show, and one guy 
red the words: "II ]usl download this movie" and 
th, o QuickTime mav,e of Drudge Dirad i n slar-H y 
appears. Aoart from sending me into fits of laughteT 
and swearing profusely ihis. sad of misleading action 
is exactly what is going lo drive people away ham 
(.sing be Internet. 

When actually asked how long it would take la 
’•load rhai movie, ihe foumaiist admitted t could 
lake quarter of an horn for leased line users, and at 
teesi 45 minutes for normal home users. So what he 


was showing you woi not a true representation of 
what you would look ot on the Web. 

All right I hear you cry, I have jgsl spent the last 
couole of paragraphs slagging off the Internet, so 
what good i s it? 

You want to find out ihe laiesl an the Galileo 
probe. When it was opprocching Jupiier, NASA 
had up-tolhe minute position data of exactly when rt 
wou d reach the Jovian atmosphere. Have you seen 
the PAWS portable Amiga? Why nol check it out at 
Bhftersoft's new Web page. 

This is who I makes the Internet so useful - infor- 
mation. A great example of this was when I was try- 
ing to find anything said by Amiga Technologies ot 
the Toaster Expo. My first port of col' was the 
Amiga IRC channel From here you can talk to any* 
one around the world in red time. Having found out 
fhai the Power Amiga would be using the MPC6Q4, 
i thought it may be useful to find something out 
about it. Fire up your Web browser, go ro any one 
at the ava lable search engines - Lycos being my 
choice - and you quickly end up wilh a good seiec 
lion of links lo IBM and Motorola's Web pages 

The Internet and all the related services it pro- 
vides are a great resource, and perhaps in the 
futvre some of the things will come to pass Silicon 
graphics have produced a virtual web language 
which allows you to explore o three dimensional 
Space Over the Internet I think many people may 
need lo take o reolity check because it is fine for us 
with leased lines and Free phone calls, but the pub- 
lic, the people who will moke or break ihis thing, do 
not have these. 


iBrowse available 


Wtelf a demo at least The much awartedf and forced 
about Web browser, IBrowse, has finally hit rite 
Streets. The fin a I program wifi be a commercial prod* 
ucf so only on early cur-down alpha version is avail- 
able for you to test for 28 days. Point AMosaic ot 
http://www.otnnipresence.com/ibrowse/ for oil rfie 
test iBrowse information , and die lafesf demo. 

Even though iBrowse has token a bit of a b eating 
on IRC my early impressions are very encouraging. 
Allowing multiple network connections, iBrowse con 
asynchronously load graphics for the current Web 
page. Even this cut-down version that only allows o 
maximum four, network connections rj downloading 
pages as fast os NetScape r and the final version 
allows up to ten connections. Along with a 
large improvement in windows scrolling ond the fact it 
does not lock up when downloading information, 
iBrowse is set to be the premier Amigo Web browser. 
But hong on, what is this I hear about Amiga 
Technologies talking to NetScape? This could get 
interesting.

nybody con lay oul aft ad lhal consists 
of □ lull page picture overlaid wilK four 
lines of text telling the reader to contact 
blahdlblah on ihis freephone number, 
drose you see in the Sunday supplements,, but 
it ads, particularly in Amiga Computing, aren't 
that, They actually have lo sell a large number 
products to a skeptical, but targeted, audience 
As aver, price is of par a mount performance 
Lrd □ lot of blurb about the product is usually 
Unnecessary r unless, af course, it is a band new 
III 1 of kit that no-one has seen before or it's a bil 
tiiiieric and deserves o ward or two oF explona-

isverfising in Amiga Computing into- three distinct 
nregaries - ihoie lhal have hundreds of products 
q sell, like gomes mail order houses or PD 
ibmnes, those lhat have between 10 and 50 
Kjducls ta sell, like most of our advertisers, and 
ids that only need to plug one or twa items like 
bf Gordon Harwood od for Pro-Grab. 

Ir ihe first instance, you can't really be loo 
(mcy with your layout, particularly if it distracts 
i= eye from searching through the list of items ior 
re that matches your customers' requirements 
fat should probably end up with a column formal 
crihe information, with boxes at the lap and bol- 
i of ihe page for the name of the company and 
ering information Ifs a bit tricky to comment

for design elements, but make sure ihe reader 
in scan across easily from the title la the price, 
er by adding alternating coloured bars or by 
ring a line of dcts across [PageStre{sm 3 can

colour or a bolder typeface The third example, 
single ilem ads, are ihe ones with ihe most Design 
paten rial You con do p radically anything and 
sometimes this Freedom can be disconcerting. The 
most important thing is la avoid the boxy’ look 
that a bt of adverts produced on ihi Amiga 
achieve effortlessly. If you are only advertising 
one product, you can afford to spend the time 
and effort in order to moke your ad look a bil spe- 
cial. Beware of using tea many colours or type- 
styles. I know ji ha? been said before, but if n a 
basic rule of layout lhat you shouldn't make yaur 
design too busy. 

There are ads in Amiga Computing (I won'! 
me nil an any names| that are incredibly hard to 
garner any infor motion from because they have 
colours running riot over the layout and text that is 
loo hard to read. This is not the approach to take. 
First of a* I, sil back with a Cup of lea or a whisky 
ord plan oul your page |or spread} on o piece of 
paper, just sketching in where you want things to 
go. Make a list of items lhal you want on ihe 
page, phone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, 
price inform all on, delivery details and so on. II 
you lake cred t cards, Find ihe relevant images for 
those you accept ond if you can't find any, try the 
magazine your od will appear in - ihey wdl 
almost certomly have same. Of course, if you are 
producing the magazine your ad will appear in, 
then you'll just have to draw some for yourself in 
DPaint or, preferably, ProDtaw 

Bear in mind the d.fferences between mono ond 
colour artwork if you are producing on ad lhat will 


appear in someone else s magazine, and make 
sure you speak ta (he magazine's aTt department 
" in advance about deadlines if you propose to 


we 


send them an Amiga DTP file for output Most mag- 
azines hove never heard of ProPoge Dr 
PageSfcnwm, so will be suspicious of taking on a File 
From one of these packages. The problems continue 
for the Amiga DTP'tr os neither ProPage nor 
Page-Slreom produce files that are even remotely 
compatible with QuarkXPress or PageMaker. 

Probably yaur best bet if you are dealing with a 
large magazine is lo by out yaur ad as you want 
it and then send the piclures, logos, elc. ta the 
magazine obng with a printout |preferobly m 
colour] of your ad far the crl department fa work 
from and lay aut in the DTP package of their 
choice. 

Well conlinue with some of the themes that can 
be used br you* adverts next month and go into 
mare depth an the topic, but until then, be cool.

the First fling you notice when you write a

round about 50 limes a second, so when you

The buzzing noise is ihe bulle-1 sound, the bang, 
ing ployed many times over and over very fast. 
Ttie reason the bullet doesn’i leave rhe barrel is that 
I starts its journey every time the button is sensed to 
be ir ihe down poiilion, Sa how da you moke the

Over to you 


Why not send me your examples of Flags, and interesting vf#j to which fhey com be 
put. Making a protoss easier, showing the program that states hove changed', even 
some interesting flip-flop effects f VU be going info those another fimej - anything 
really as Jong as it's about 10 lines of code or less and if mc/udes a flag or fwo. I'm 
parttcuiatly interested fn graphic effects, but timing and more mundane fasfc are 
acceptable. Perhaps there if an inf erf a re problem you can solve with these flogs? 

JLaafc Info it. I if foot at fhe best in a month or two, in the meantime I'll see you 
next month for another arcade game routine which you'll find handy when you 
design your own version of an arcade classic. 


getting rhe idea You use a flag Take rhe fallowing 
example: 

[f Fire(l) Tsin %>t ^Lgy l ; Bob ; 

PS = SI i NT = 5 T 

Idd RS r S ; 8oh *, UK, NT,? : ]! ttJt>5X + 1 DD Then Beb 

Oft 2 

Thai's simple enough. Sense th-e joystick, make o 
bang |m lh-s cose d nice sample], then move the 
sprite two pixels at a lime From the barrel la the 
edge ol the screen in a straight line. If il gets 100 
pixels away from rhe ship wirhout hitting something 
it gets turned off. fiuf this rawline suffers from 
buzzing and no bullets. The belter way of doing i! 


Tt Ffrt(1i i n d NISSFlMMI T*en Ut Hay 1 ; 
msSFLWtl : Sob 2,SX,ST,2 : HI=5X : m*ST 
It RIHFIJfel Then idd : Bob Z f W, t Wt t 2 ; H 
Ihtn Edo &ft \ j msifL*6=D 

In this version,, when the button is pressed rhe flag 


M-S-SFLAG is set from 0 to f . In the next line the mis- 
sive is moved onfy if MlSSFLAG is slid 1. Until ?he miir 
sile moves TOO pixels away from !he barrel, the flag Is 
slill set, so the Fire button is dead. You anly fire one 
shell. When Ihe first missile vanishes fyou could 
explode it, but in this case if just vanishes), yds? con 
then shoal another. Obviously, you couia vary the jim- 
mg so that yaw can add a multiple shot, perhaps, or 
make it a second (or 50/5Olhs of a secolvd] or even 
haH a second between shots, enabling she player re 
get his finger off the button. 

This is an exiremely useful technique and one 
which answers a lot of those questions you ask, like 
"how da you do lhal?" Nine times out of ten the 
answer is either flags, subroutines or vectors. A sde 
oenefh oF using Flags n your Amos programming is 
that these techniques are used guile a lot in the worlds 
oF € and assembly programming. So os ond when 
you move on to those languages, as you might in the 
course of lime, you will be prepared for at least one 
coo! trick. 



Write stuff 


If you have any other Amos programs or 
queries oboerf Amos, please write to the 
usual address , which is; Phil South, Amos 
tofunin. Amigo Computing, Medio House. 
Adlingfan Park , Macclesfield SKJO 4NP. 

Please send routines on an Amiga disk 
with notes on how the program works 
on paper, not as text files on fhe disk. 
Make the routines short enough to 
appear in print, i.e, no more than about 
30’4O fines of code and, if possible , 
moice them use no external graphic;, or 
if they can't be used without them then 
be sore fo provide them on the disk in 
native IFF format, and the same goes for 
sound fifes . Follow these guidelines and 
you'll be sure of making me a happy

Paul Overaa looks 
behind the scenes 
lat a new Amiga 
Imusic project with 
la difference 


anHOHOi 



miga users, are soon gqiqg to be intro- 
duced, milially via mail order advertise- 
ments,, to a company called Tongeni 
Music Design ai>d a compact disc jond 
n cassette] album colied Everybody's Girlfriend. 
Whai has this to da with ihq Amigo mus>c scene? 
Quiie a lot - you see the three parings of Tangent 
.Music are none other than Edward Fermor, Richard 
rox,,, and David Pleasarvce who, as you'll oil 
j doubtless knew, was Managing Director ql 

■ Commodore Business Machines UK unlil Escom 

■ GmBH purchased the worldwide assets of rhe 

■ Commodore group and the UK branch hod to 

■ dose 

Whql you probably will not know is that David 
1 feasance is also o musician, a guitarist in fact, 

■ with a particular passion for Flamenco. He's hod 
I iis own Flamenco dance compony, has studied gui- 

\ tor in Spain, and has appeared in concert, cabaret 
ond on TV, supporting people ike John Fornhom 
and Gallagher ond Lyle 

Amiga is actually Spanish for girlfriend and the 
Everybody's Girlfriend albu m is then essentially a 
celebration in muse of fen years of the Amiga, wilh 
the 14 tracks being inspired by the Amigo, recor- 

■ ded using Amigos, and written and produced by 
people who know the Amiga. 

Thu first album provides o chance !o hear some- 
thing of the musical lolenli of Dov d Pieasance. 
Everybody's Girlfriend was in, Foci David's brain- 
child. with the initial planning af the project begin- 
ning around November of 1994. Recording, which 
did not storl unlil September of last year, has been 
carried ogl using Amigos running the Slue Ribbon 
Soundworks Bars & Pipes sequencer, and the 
Sunrise Studio 16 B-lrack, lb-bit dig ileal recording 


The sound 
of music? 


system. When il comes to professional recording, 
however, not even Amigas can work in tala! isola- 
tion and, needless fo say. Tangent's 32 charnel, 
24-froek dig ifa ' recording studio also has its Fair 
share qf other hi-tech equipment scattered around. 
There's o SoundcrqFi DC2Q0Q fully automated 
desk, ond two lascam BASE recorders which link 
to ihe Amiga-based Sunrise Studio 16 System 
Everything gets mastered to a Tqscam 
DA30 MKII CAT which can then be 
recorded to o Morantz DDB2 DtC, a 
Sony TCK6I15, ond so Phillips record- 
able CD [which is linked incidentally to 
on Amiga SOOQTj if you also add ihe 
massive as40fimeni of outboard effects, 
sound modules anti samplers, including 
o Roland JV1 080. Roland S760 and a 
Korg Wavestqtiqn SR, Genelec monitors 
in the conlrol room, Spirit Absolute 2s in 
the studio and so on, then it's hardly sur- 
prising that things sound good. 

There is, incidentally, 
also a small 


satellite studio available wh ch p ndudes on Anr.iga 
4000/0 30 running Bars & Pipes where many of the 
ideas for the new Tangent Music oSbum started life. 
This in ilself should be al interest hecause this loiter 
type of setup u typicol of that which can be found 
ip the home studios of many 
Amiga-based musicians. 


David Pfsaisnc#; 
The former boct 
of Coninseifere UK 
turns his hand lo 
fltlA (HUlfc mdfuilt ry 



I've been one of the few reviewers lucky 
enough fo get a sneak preview of the tracks op 
the Everybody's Girlfriend album, it's quite an 
impressive mixed bog with the music and 
lyri cs for all except four of the tracks 
being atfrrbufed fo o bond colled 'Passion', 
who torn out fo be Tangent's id Fermor and 
Richard Knox, both of whom are established 
session ploye rs« Ed alio has lots of TV and 
video work under his belt ond in 1993, for 
instance, accompanied the renowned deaf pe r- 
cussiomst Evelyn Glennie on a world tour * 
Richard, a singer /songwriter /keyboard player > 
has played and recorded both in the UK and 
the States and. os well as various TV appear* 
antes, also has a number of film credits to his 
name. 

ffrrhard Ifnojc does a good job with the main 


vocals on half a dozen of the trades, although 
there ii a particularly good raunchy number 
called * lay You Down' which features P J 
Philips and Angie Brown on vocals , You'll also 
find on interesting raw blues track, and a few 
instrumentals including an excellent David 
Pleas once Homeric o track Para Mi Amiga 
(Homage to Jay Miner!', You might like to 
know , incidentally, that David's personal 
favourites from the album are the pap song 
Don't Let hie Foil, the love song called Roses , 
and on instrumental track. Infinity! 

I should think that the fact that David 
Pleasortte is both executive producer on the 
Everybody's Girlfriend album, and one of the 
musicians, is going to be enough in Itself fo 
moke this offering a bit of a collectors' item 
amongst Amigo owners* When you add to this 


the fact that the album will show you exactly 
what con be done music -wise with an Amiga 
sequencer,- I suspect Tangent Music ore going 
to be onto a sure-fire winner with this new 
project!

S o Far we have studied the basic princi- 
ples of picture design, backdrops and 
spec i a effects. This month, end For ihe 
■I next Few issues, we will be looking at 
animation principles and specific techniques 
applicable to animation 

Obviously, drawing jingle images is a lot less 
painless lhan creating an ammation but most 
reputable art packages include a plethora of dif- 
ferent Functions lhal make animation on a compvt- 
Hf a hell o : a lot easier, and quicker, than that an 
diaper. Unfortunately, understanding the rech 
niques can lake a while and even then, applying 
them correctly can prove a recurring nightmare 
So for simplicity's sake, I won't be gorng into the 
N‘h dimension la explain these functions but will 
jrovide simple techniques wilh resells so that you 
igve a head siaM For your own experimentation 
Just as with a jingle image, it is vitally impor- 
tant that you put your animation down on paper 
irst in (he form of storyboards. btoryboords ore 
small roughs of the key elements, scenes and 
camera angles within on animation. You don't 
need to draw in detail, just enough so that you 
personally understand whot it is you're planning 
ond how it works. 

Rendering options 

The next thing to do is work oui whot animated 
effects are included ond the best options for ren 
de-ring (drawing) ihem, To pinpoint certain 
aspects I will be referring to the animation shown 
here in the screenshots. The techniques explained 
can be employed in many different ways and 
with any animation, not just the one I have 
supplied 

At the computer, the First Ihing to do is to design 
oil the objects lhal will make up your completed 
anim (short for animation], Although it is more 
appealing to acluolty design as you go, I can guar- 
antee yOu'li eventually wish you hadn't. Graale a I 
rhe objects and sove ihem independently with 
suitable filenames, Ff you end up with a lot of 
objects and they're non properly labelled, you 
end up wasting precious time and freaking oui 
regularly, With the boring bits out aF the way you 
con rhen simply dick all the pieces together and

ditoirtiaf for wpemd 
and flexibility 


When looming objects in ypulf quitkiy realise that the pixels 
that make vp Ihe oh/ecl furn 'blacky' as they ore magnified. 
There is a way around this which entails drawing the original 
object at its largest she. You can ffreri set fhe animation posi- 
tion to the last frame in the room and tender the brush zoom- 
ing out, but with the animation running hoc k wards and with 
a positive value in the fnd i position.

youT feel happier, and more confident, spending 
time getting the finished animation accurate. 

Boih Deluxe Paint ond Bri Ilia nee have powerful 
Move Functions They allow you to set the initial 
start position of the bush, ihe end position, as well 
as any rotations you worn la occur throughout ihe 
procedure. There are three important values For 
both position and rotalion and ihese are labelled x, 
y and i The x ond y are ihe easiest to explain and 
understand. Wilh x you can move your brush in ihe 
horizontal (left and right] and y allows you to move 
the brush in rhe vertical (ue and down), If you ore 
moving clouds or a ship you would use the x pas- 
bon, ond to move a lift or □ helcopte' you would 
use y, 

Z is o different matter altogether If you can 
imagine a line travelling stto-ghf through the centre 
of your screen, you will have discovered ihe i axis 
When you realise ihot z moves brushes 
closer ond briber away it is easier lo visualise this 
imaginary line. The position of a brush has two 
uses - for moving abjeds or For camera pans, If 
you move a car off screen From a standstill then ii 
will be dearly obvious that the object has 'lie!’ 
moved, However, if you move an enhre scene off 
screen ih.en it wi I appear that the cam era has in 
fact moved [pqnned| raiher lhan ihe scene. The

same principle also applies to z. You can appear to 
move an ob|Bd closer a* Farther away but by mov- 
ing the eniue scene you g-ve Hie impression lhal the 
camera is zooming in, or out Sorry to go on about x, 
y and z, but they need to be understood if you 
□ re maximise your potential with computer-aided 
animation 

X, y and z also feature with rotalion os well os 
position Using rotation you can turn your brush in 
every angle while the brush is being moved through 
the position axis' settings. Rotation is more difficult to 
grasp than position but if you con imagine the x, y 
and z pos fion lines on your screen, rotation simply 
rotates the brush around the correspond ng qxi&, ?iie

Gary Whiteley offers 
some helpful 
advice for 
would-be Amiga 
DTV'ers 


Titling for 
beginners 


iace I've given you ail ibai Font informa- 
lion over the Iasi few months, and hinled 
at some of the wdyS you can gse Fonts for 
■■■ video filling, I ihought is might be a good 
dea to go over ihe- basics of video titling hard- 
wire, whot you need, how it's connected together 
and whet you mighl achieve with a basic setup 
1 1 keep it as simple as possible for ihose of you 
witti the yearning, but not yet the knowledge, tc 
add graphics and titles lo your own videos, such 
■li holiday films, weddings and Family events. 

If you hove an Amigo with ils own colour video 
eu'pui (such os the Amiga 1200) then you already 
have a machine with which you can do simple 
■tlipg and graphics to video You probably realise 
that you can use either ihe RF or video outputs lo 
display your Amigo programs on □ suitable TV, 
bul did you know thoi you con also use them to 
record ihe ouiput from your Amigo to video 1 ? The 
simplest way is to connect ihe A 1 200's RF outpui 
lo the aerial input o-n your VCR, ond ihen monitor 
it via your TV in the usual way whilst you record 
cr prepare graphics, though ihe picture quality 
won't be marvellous. 

Crossovers 

Add another VCR in place oF the Amiga and you 
con copy sections of your production across end 
make an edit From your original video footage, 
cutting out oil the worst ports. If you want to odd a 
tills or graphic simply reconnect the Amigo to the 
| record VCR (the one you're editing onto), use your 
I Favourite paint or titling software lo make your 
I graphics, and then retard them The quality of the 
I edits ycHf'lt gel with such o system will be rather 
| hit and miss, since there's no way to control the 
accuracy of the cuts, so ’glitches' are likely to 
■occur, bui For almost na outlay (provided you can 
gel your hands on two VCRs, one of which could 


I 


SINGLE' CONNECTION 


- 


In fldfdrfbrt to its overlay functions, the advantage of using a 
genlock is that you don't have to keep reconnecting squip- 
merit, since ft con output either Amigo graphics, incoming 
video, or a combination of bath, jo if you fust want to edit 
picture only simply switch the genlock's output to Video 
. 

However, a genlock stiff won't cure gf itchy edits, since it 
^eesn't affect the way that two funsynchronisedi VCRs refute 
to each other whilst editing, in fo<t r without a proper editing 
system which synchronises the two VCRs, you s houldn t 
expect either split second accuracy or perfectly clean edits. 
Remember that you're working on the cheap, so hear this in 
before you get depressed wondering why your £1000 
cob b Jed- together video edit suite can't compare to- a £ J 0000 
Pro 5VHS or £30000+ BetoCom system. 



Two taai’t systems for wnlgr yldma ItlJIng and graphics 


be a camcofder| and a TV or Iwo (a second TV ts 
useful For cueing up the playback VCR, though not 
lofoily essential | you can at least experiment wnh 
video titling from your Amigo. 

Incidentally, if your VCR has a composite video 
input in addition ta Ihe standard RF you'd be bet- 
ter advised ta use ii iF possible, since ihe quality 
will be belter than Rf. If your video has a SCART 
connector you can always buy a svi table sel cl 
leads to conned from the A1 200's phono video 
ouiput to your VCR's SCART socket. 

Owners of mast Other Ami gas won'l have ii so 
easy Inexplicably, for such. a DTV-Friendly 
machine, most oF the other Amigos in circulation 
don'l 'have on RF or colour video ouiput, so you’ll 
have to add one in ihe Form of either a modulatar, 
genlock or encoder card, depending on your 
needs, your budget and Ihe type of Amiga you 
have. 

Each of these devices connects to the Amiga's 
RGB port and convert the Amiga's n alive RGB 
signal lo one Of more Forms oF video signal, 
hr instance RF, composite video, or SVHS. 
Genlocks allow computer graphics to be 
'keyed' over background video, enabling text or 
graphics to be superimposed directly on top of 
video pictures In simple terms, ihis means that 
wherever ihe background colour (palette Colour 


0] occurs, the video image will show through 
behind ihe graphics, though some genlocks permit 
Other colours lo be used as iheir background key 
colour. 

Modulators and encoders simply convert RGS lo 
video and connoi usually provide any superimposi- 
lion or other genlock Functions. They are usually 
used to take the Amiga's display lo a TV or moni- 
tor., or to provide a video signal for recording 
on d/or further manipulation Note that an encoder 
will generally provide o higher quality output than 
o modulator, since they are buill with video in 
mind, roiher Ihon TV display. 

IF you hqdn'1 already realised rl, you II also 
need two VCRs if you wani to use o genlock. One 
VCR provides playback for ihe source video, which 
in turn is needed ta 'genlock' |in olher wards, syn- 
chronise] the Amiga’s display liming to tha? of the 
incoming video signal, while the second VCR is 
necessary to record Ihe composited graphics and 
source video from the genlock's ovtpui
