ome of you may be wondering 
our ABC figures at the 
^ bottom of this page. How is it; in 
a world of declining Amiga use 
and with other magazine sales dropping by 
as much a$ 37 per cent, that we have man- 
aged to add about 47% to our readership 
figures just like that? The answer's simple 
really. Not only are we the best Amiga mag* 
azine on the market with exclusive reports 
brought to you before anyone else on 
things like the new Amiga, the stories in 
this issue about VisCorp buying Amiga 
Technofogies, and NewTek's Lightwave 
announcement and so on, we are also 
unique in the fact that we have two edi- 
tions, one for Europe and one for the 
American market. The reason for our 
increased ABC is our loyal American and 
Canadian readers who rely on us to bring 
them the up-to-date news, reviews and 
features every month that we bring to the 
rest of the wo rid. 

The truth 

But why do our readers like us? Well, as 
always you can rely on Amiga Computing to 
tell you the truth about a product Just 
because the market is shrinking, it doesn't 
mean we will puff products against our 
better judgement, after all, it is you, our 
readers, to whom we are responsible and 
you won't trust a magazine's judgement if 
you buy a product we have said is perfect 
and it turns out to be a bit mince. 

We also appeal to the more mature! 


I Double the readers 

j Double the fun 

serious Amiga owner. The kind of chap, as 
our survey reveals, that spends more time 
using 3D packages than playing games, that 
almost certainly has a hard drive and 
CD-ROM, This sort of person doens't enjoy 
being talked down to and we strive not to 
do that 

So here we are, poised on the brink of yet 
another chapter in the Amiga's chequered 
career, with VisCorp announcing that they 
will continue to support existing Amiga mar- 
kets and develop new ones, pretty much the 
same stories we heard from Estom last May. 

Well have to wait and see, a$ usual, but at 
least Don Gilbreath, one of the head hon- 
chos at VisCorp, was the designer of the 
CD32, so he has more pedigree than most of 
the current Amiga Technologies team. And 
this time there shouldn't be any of the delays 
in production of new machines* because, as 
we understand it VisCorp are buying Amiga 
Technologies lock, stock and barrel, so they 
won't have to find a factory to produce 
Amrgas which will need to be retooled and 
so on. 

Perhaps VisCorp might, may also attract 
back some of the real Commodore talent 
from their posts at other companies. Names 
like Dave Haynie, Mike Sinz, Peter Cherna et 
at would be the ones best suited to breath- 
ing fife back into our favourite machine in a 



way that Amiga Technologies, through no 
particular fault of their own, have failed to 


do. 


From reading IRC transcripts and attend- 
ing conferences we know that there is still 
an awful lot of potential in the Amiga yet. 
Other platforms have shown the way for- 
ward perhaps, but there is still time for our 
machine to rise from the ashes of 
Commodore and E scorn and renew itself 
phoenix-like, as the machine for artists and 
multimedia types the world oven VVe know 
there is a market out there from our reader 


survey. We know you are now more dued 
up than ever, and we know that you are 
sticking with the Amiga because it is still the 
best machine for your current computing 
needs. Let's stick out the year and see the 
looks of disbelief surface on the faces of 
those fairweather Amiga owners who 
ditched everything they knew for a person- 
ality-free PC when VisCorp show a 
PowerAmiga at next year's CeBit show...

HOCK ACQUISITION OF AMIGA 
TECHNOLOGIES BY VISCORP 


J U 5 t as we were going to press, Amiga Computing learnt of the shock 
announcement that E scorn were to sell Amiga Technologies to VlScorp, devel- 
opers of set-top bo* technology. A binding fetter of understanding has been 'signed 
between the companies and it states that VlScorp would acquire Amiga Technologies, 
including the intellectual properties of the Commodore Business Machines. The trans- 
action value is around HO million - $10 million more than Escom bought 
Commodore for just over a year ago, The acquisition is subject to approval by both 
companies' board of directors and terms were not disclosed 
Gilles Bourdin, PR Manager for Amiga Technologies explained: 'We have changed 
Mother companies because of the financial position of Escom, They were not in a 
position to hold Amiga Technologies and so we have a found a company that are 
more development-orientated - an Amiga-oriented company." When asked whether 
this is definite he commented: "We are quite sure this Is going to happen." In January, 
Escom posted losses of 72 DM million and in March they revised that to 1 25 DM 

Million, 

Although primarily 
the acquisition is to 
give VlScorp fuff access 
to Amiga Technology 
for its set-top bo*, they 
have stated that sup- 
port of the AT 200 and

M000 wall continue. Hefmut Jost, now Chief 
Executive of Escom AG (see separate story) 
commented: "VlScorp anticipates the support 
of ongoing European sales of popular models 
such as the M000T and the AT200 as well as 
the current developments and future releases 
of Amiga Technologies," 

At the press conference at the World of 
Amiga show, they outlined their plans further. 

William Buck, VIScorp's CEO, commented on 
the rumoured offer of S40 million when 
Escom bought Amiga Technologies for only 

S10 million, "People are saying that these guys are crazy. ..remember though that 
money was spent subsequently, What we are buying is an asset. An asset that involves 
the inventory of finished goods, inventory of components which we can use to do 
what was being done but we can also use them to do what we want to do. Plus we're 
getting the intellectual properties. We think we're getting a great deal," VlScorp were 
present at the original auction for Commodore. 

Petro Tyschtschenko offered: "This procedure is not affecting our day to day 
business, on-going projects, or my position as president of the company." 

It was also stated that the distribution deal already in place with Escom when the 
original licensing agreement was signed was still in place. The preposed time scale for 
development is projected to be the end of 1996 for Universal Internet Television 
Interface for the US and the UK and the full set-top box with genlock and card-swipe 

for 1997. We'll bring you a full report of World of Amiga and more on the VlScorp deal 
next month. 


All change 
at Escom 

Man lied Schmitt, Escom'* CEO, h as quit the baard and has been 
replaced by Helmut lost. The Supervisory Board accepted Schmitt s 
decision and he left his position on 31 March, However, he is still with 
the company in the role of consultant 
lost has been! head of IBM's German PC business since November 
but previous Id that he was Managing Director of Commodore GmbH 
and Vice President International, in 1993 he accepted a post on the 
board of ISCOM AG where he was responsible for the Sales and 
Marketing functions and for the management of subsidiaries. 

Amiga Camputmg spoke to Gibes Uourdin. PR Manager for the 
Company, about the recent events. He confirmed Sc ii mill had quit the 
Board bul contrary to current rumours, he denied that Petro 
Tyschtschenko was also leaving. Mote news from Amiga Technologies 
this m <i Midi is (hat the Internet pack is finally ready. According to 
Kourdin, the software and the modem are finished, and the delay was 
put down to the fad that each country needed a different modern and 
because the Telecom agreements varied between each country.

H hotogenics 2 

TO LAUNCH 


11 Imathera have revealed that their 
" much anticipated Photogenics 2 pack- 
age is about to be released. As a follow-up to 
their highly successful graphics package, it 
contains many new features - so much so 
that they have put it on CD-ROM. They have 
included Animation support to load and save 
standard IFF Anim files, powerful ARexx 
scripting where you can create macro scripts 
to automate conversion, build animations or 
interface with other Amiga software, This 
also allows Photogenics 2 to link directly to 
Lightwave 30, 

A new full -screen Effects system has also 
been incorporated and provides many new 
effects that you can apply to a complete 


image or a masked area, Vou can write your 
own effects but those included are Radial 
Blur, Warp, 3D Rotate and 32-bit Fractal 
generator. Another new feature is theft 
Virtual Buffers which means you can work 
with images larger than your memory will 
allow. Almathera claim this is 'unique' 
because it allows this without the speed 
loss usually associated with virtual memory 
programs. Hypertext On-line help is provid- 
ed on the CD-ROM in HTML format, and a 
Web browser is also included. The price is 
expected to be around £99,95, 

Almathera can be contacted on Ot&t-

ICHTWAVE 5 ON THE HORIZON 


U ewTek took the opportunity given to them at NAB to announce the latest version of 
I™ Lightwave. The be$t new i$ that Modeler is to receive a much needed update, with tools to 
bring it in line with the current range of state-of-the-art CGI programs. Modeler has been neglected 
in comparison to Layout, with only Metaform being of any note as an update in recent reasons. 

Lightwave 5 is set to change all that with several new ground-breaking features, firefly, there is 
MataNurbSp and Lightwave is the first product with this feature. It breaks the barrier between spline- 
based modelling and traditional polygons by automating the transition between the two. Another lea* 

turs much loved by 30 Studio users is MetaBalls 
which will be included directly in Modeller (rather 
than having to be a plug-in, as in 3D Stud id), 
Meta Balls is a system that is fairly hard to explain in 
a few words r but allows for the kind of r globb/ 
effects as seen in the Organics advert on TV. In 
addition to over 100 new features for both, Layout 
and Modeler, Lightwave 5 also promises full inte- 
gration with GpenGL a graphics system for realtime 
shaded views in Layout, and, presumably (they 
didn't say on the press release), Modeler. But 
where will that leave Amiga owners who won't 
have access to GpenGL? MewTefc don't say, but the 
PC version will be the first available, with Alpha, 
MIPS and SGI to follow. The pricing will be 
31495 for the full version, and upgrades will 
cost S433 from any previous version.

about 60, The administrator commented that people had expressed an interest in buying the 
company but they had no intention of putting it up lor sale. 

Leisuresoft are one of only two Amiga distributors, the other being SDL SDL also fell into 
problems back in October and went into Administration, to be bought out only four weeks later 
by Atir o Corporation. No-one from leisuresoft was able to comment at the time of going to

j\ new solution has emerged in Japan to the age old 
problem of how to train motorbike riders without 
actually exposing them to too much danger on the open 
road. 

Virtuality KK, a subsidiary of Virtuality Croup pic, have 
announced that they have completed the development of a 
motorbike simulator for use in driving schools in Japan. The 
completion of the simulator has coincided with the Japanese 
Police’s decision to revise the traffic law so that simulators 
will have to be used as pari of the teaching programme, 
particularly for candidates of bikes over 40Dcc, 

Virtuality KK expect to make massive profits on the 
motorbike simulator as the market is estimated to be about 
U5 S5Q million and the only other company known to be 


MOTOR RUNNING... 

working on a bike simulator is Honda The real advantage of 
the simulator is the fact that it can allow student drivers to 
drive in hazardous conditions without Fear of injury. Dangers 
such as difficult weather conditions, busy roads, and pedestri- 
ans walking out in front of them will enable them to experi- 
ence the worst they could expect to come across on the open 
road, and to learn from their experiences. 

Rather than use a flat screen, the simulator makes use of a 
"Visette Head Mounted Display through which the student 
sees detailed real time 3D graphics. According to Mr 
Terushisa Tajima, HMD is used because "...it is the only way 
to ensure that students turn their heads left and right before 
they make a turn at an intersection."

awards night to celebrate the best and 
the rest in the industry. The show was 
hosted by BBC’s Emma Forbes (Live and

An Argentine computer hacker found 
himself in deep trouble recently when 
he was overheard bragging to his 
girlfriend that he had broken into US 
military computers and other top secun 
ity systems. A judge authorised Julio 
Ardita 5 telephone to be bugged and 
he wtis heard boasting how he had 
used the Internet to break into the 
systems. 

Ardita also hacked into the Argentine 
telephone company, Telecom Argentina, 
and they suspect someone had given 
him the password - a combination 
which would have taken years to unco- 
ver, Ardita was allowed free on parole 
but could face up to three years if found 
guilty.

Nova acquire 
Aladdin 4D 

D t used to be that there were two rnajor rendering packages on the Amiga - Impulse's 
Imagine on the lower end, and Newtek's Lightwave on the upper end, Contenders have 
tome and gone. About a year ago, M axon's Cinema4D got an English translation, and its 
low cost and high power set the market astir. It's just got quite a bit hotter. 

Nova Design, renown the world over for their high-end image processor ImageFX, have 
acquired Aladdin 40 from Adspec Programming. While Aladdin 4D has never actually gone out 
of production, its interface and features are currently going through a major overhaul by Nova 
Design programmers. Previous to Nova's acquisition, Aladdin 4D was often noted for powerful 
animation control and its ability to create realistic vapors, clouds., and gasses. An old competitor 
has returned to stake its claim on the high-end, low-cost rendering market. 

Nova Design intend to release Aladdin 40 5.0 in the third quarter of 1996, but a price has 
net yet been determined- For more information on Nova Design, ImageFX, or Aladdin 40, you 
can reach Nova Design by phone on (001) 804-2 02-5BGB, by fax on (001) 004-282-3768, by 
e-mail at kermit@cup, porta Ixom, or on the Web at http://www.portal.com/-kermrt/ 



NTERNET FOR THE NORTH 


Internet Direct and Istar Networks are offering a special internet access package to 
Amiga users, complete with one month's free access. With the Amiga Surfer and 
Surf Ware packages still unreteased in North America, this marks the first time a 
nationwide effort has been made to provide a one-stop Internet setup to Amiga users. 

The package includes the demo version of AmiTCP 4,0, with companion auto dialer, 
A Mosaic Web browser, GUI -FTP client, and telnet client. "Direct and Inforamp will pro- 
vide regular updates of the software to their customers as it becomes available. The 
package is currently in stock at Amiga dealers throughout Canada, and the iSTAft and 
Internet Direct networks have dozens of dialups included in the offer covering Canada's 
major metropolitan areas. For more information call (00 1) 905-723-0930,

New setup

World Construction Set T the package that 
interprets geographical survey DEM files 
into realistic landscapes, has reached a 
new version. Questar Productions haw 
decided to pat oat a 'pre-release' version, 
without all the features fully implemented 
and fixed. The pre-release will be less 
expensive than the full package, and all 
prerelease purchasers will be entitled to 
a free upgrade upon its completion. 

While Questar produce WCS for other 
platforms, the price of WCS on the Amigo

WCS V2 allows timeline editing of anima-

ANDITS ON 
THE WEB 


Qpen AGAIN FOR BUSINESS 


T he Wonder Computers chain of Amigo retail stores 
went into bankruptcy in late January, but Wonder CEO. 
Mark Habinski publicly promised the Amiga community 
he would try his hardest to re -acquire as much of 
Wonder as possible and re-establish it as a new , 
debt-free corporation. This has been done. 

On I May , Wonder Computers International opened 
their first store and corporate headquarter* in Ottawa , 
Canada. Habimki* s bids for the two largest Wonder toco- 
tms, os well as for the physical capital of the corporate 
headquarters and the trademarks and rights to the 
Wonder name, ivere accepted by the bankruptcy 
trustees. Keynes Emeruwa. former Marketing Manager of 
WCi, said of the return of Wonder: *We ore more excited 


now than ever before , We're looking forward to working 
with and helping the entire Amiga community ; This 
resurrection is a testament to the success of the Amiga .' 

Wonder's initial five tocottons will be the home store 
and corporate headquarters in Ottawa , with a sales 
office in Vancouver ; British Columbia, and expansion is 
planned for the city of Toronto os soon os possible. In 
addition, two western Wonder stores whose assets were 
acquired by a former Wonder manager may became 
affiliated with the new company „ While the planned 
World of Amiga \ Vancouver in June will not be possible, 
Habinski has indicated that World of Amiga Toronto in 
December will s till be held \ and that a date will be 
announced soon , 


Dan Barrett, better known to Amiga users for 
his BLAZEMONGER humour series, has 
turned from biting sarcasm to somewhat 
more serious subject matter. His new book 
from O'Reilly and Associates, entitled 'Bandits 
on the information Superhighway', deals with 
Internet risks, scams, and hoaxes. Barrett 
deals with security issues, junk e-mail, and 
other concerns, and works to debunk the 
myth that the Net is strictly a playground for 
paedophiles and perverts. 

‘Bandits 1 can be found at many book- 
stores, or can be ordered tinder ISBN 
1-56592-156-9. For more information, you

Extracting 
CoverDisk files 


Before you even think of putting the 
coverdisks anywhere near your 
computer you should make sure 
you write protect them by moving 
the black tab in the top coiner of 
the disk, so you can see through the 
hole. Doing this makes sure you 
cannot damage your disks in any- 
way, There is no reason why the 
coverdisks need to be written to, so 
even if the computer asks you to 
write enable the disks, don't do it. 

To extract any single archive, sim- 
ply 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 welcome screen and press pro- 
ceed once on the current screen, 
and then again on the next. The 
program can then be found in your 
RAM disk. Normally most programs 
need further installing, so read the 
documents on how to do this. 

Hard Drive 
users 

Hard drive users do not have to 
boot with the first disk, but you 
must make sure you have the 
Amiga's Installer program in your C 
drawer, ro make sure your hard 
drive has the correct files in place, 
double-click on the SetupHD icon. 
This will check if you have the 
installer program and if not will 
copy it across - do not worry as it 
will not write over any existing files. 

All you hard drive owners will 
find Multi Extract very useful. It is a 
separate method of extracting the 
coverdisk files and allows you to 
extract a number of files in one go, 
to your hard disk or RAM 

When you run MultiExtract you 
will be presented with a number of 
check boxes, each representing one 
of the programs on that coverdisk. 
lust de-select all the programs you 
do not want extracting and then 
press proceed. All the selected pro- 
grams can now miraculously be 
found in the selected destination.

you to fce-ep track 
of whai your

Its huge, a 4Mb demo of StormC 
A complete C/C++ development 
environment for the Amiga 


Installing StormC 


StormC is not a small program as it gives the programmer a complete C/C++ developments 
environment. The total amount of hard drive space required is almost 4Mb. Installation is a 
matter of a few mouse dicks on the installer icon then all you need to do is say where you 
want StormC to be placed The archive is so big we had to spread it over the two coverdisks, 
so half-way through installation you wifi be asked to insert the second disk. Once done! 
StormC is ready to run. 

With the StormC demo there are two example programs that you can compile and run. 
To load them, click on the open project icon and go to the Examples directory. There are 
two projects already setup for you, One creates a demo Gadtool interface and the other 
makes use of the Amiga's BOOPSI colour wheel. 

Select one and once it is loaded click on the run icon to compile and run the program. 
This will show you StormC running through its compile and link sequence, and then the 
debugger that works alongside the compiled program.

With the end of development for SAS C a 
huge gap was left in the Amiga market 
There was up commercial C compiler, and 
as 5A5 C never gain object-oriented exten- 
sions, this left the Amiga lacking a very 
important product- StormC looks like it can 
wry easily fill SAS Cs boots. 

The heart of StormC is the project mana- 
ger, from which all other components are 
invoked and are provided with data. The 
project manager is not simply a better 
MAKE, but the administrator for all your 
program modules such as sources, object 
libraries, documentation, ARexx scripts, 
pictures and resources, along with compiler, 
editor and project options. 

A further component of the system is the 
editor, with its ability to emphasise key- 
words and syntax characteristics colourfully, 
With this text colouring you can read your 
program much easier because you will be 
better able to see its structure. Apart from 
this it also helps you avoid errors while 
edihng your sources. As soon as a keyword 
or an Amiga function is entered, the word 
15 marked colourfully and you know you 
completed it correctly. 

Next is the extraordinary debugger, extra- 
ordinary because it makes no difference 
wnether the editor or the debugger is run- 
ning. The debugger uses the abilities of the 
editor which means that the debugger uses 
the editor window for its output Therefore, 
you can watch the source, set breakpoints, 
look lorfunctions and variables and so on

compiler for both parties, The traditional 
programmers will use our very fast and com- 
patible ANSI C compiler, and they can switch 
to object-oriented programming with C++ at 
any time, completely or partially. StormC is 
their tool for the future. The others will use 
the outstanding C++ compiler, StormC 
implements C++ according to the design by 
Bjarne Stroustrup and it supports the 
extended AT&T 3.0 standard. The compiler 
generates code for all Motorola 600x0 CPUs 
including the 660 60. 

StormC is suitable for all programming 
projects, be they administrative, graphics, 
music or game programs. For all these pro-

The most important part of our develops

ted programming is all the rage. Hardly any 
software developer programs in ANSI C 
anymore, at least that's the impression I 
get. The truth, however, is quite the oppo- 
site.. While many programmers use C++ 
compilers, these are suited just as well for 
translating ANSI C code. StormC is a

To use the fallowing 
program you need 
to have the Magic User 
Interface v5 installed 
on your system. With* 
out it you wilt not be 
able to run any MOI program , MVI is 
available from any good PD house. 



ClassAction v3 


Author: Gasmi Salim 

Workbench 2.04 Magic User Interface v3jl 



Far v*r«Jvrt 3 tw * garw Af(lf /turf 

This is a great program that makes your life a 
lot easier. When you have a hard drive you 
end up with all manner of files dotted 
around, and it you had to have every program 
necessary to display all these different files 
you would not have very much room on your 
Workbench, 

ClassAction lets you define a whole host of 
different file types such as GIF, Jpeg, I IBM or 
any other file you like and specify the pro- 
gram that should display rt, leaving you with a 
single Applcon on your Workbench. If you 
want to display a picture then you only have 
to drop the picture file into the Applcon and 
the corresponding picture viewer will be run. 

Once you have installed ClassAction using 
the provided installer you can run the prefer- 
ence program, As standard there are a good 
number of predefined file types, but you will 
have to change the pre-set programs to your 
own, 

ClassAction has a number of handy fea- 
tures that make it very good to use. Firstly, for 
each file type you define you can have many 
different actions, so when you drop a file 
onto the Applcon you get a list of the options 
you specified. Therefore, for Jpegs you could 
have normal and grey preview options if you 
use Fastview. 

When It comes to adding new file types, 
ClassAction gives you a few options, the first 
is that you can simply define a file name 
extension, such as #?.jpg to define a Jpeg file. 
This is not particularly good because any Jpeg 
file that does not end in .jpg will not be 
recognised by ClassAction. 

The second way is to define the internal 
structure of a Jpeg file. If you want to know 
every Jpeg file has the word JFIF six bytes into 
the file you enter 6/JFEF' which tells 
ClassAction to look at the 6th byte In a file 
and rf it matches JFIF then it is a Jpeg. If you 
do not fancy doing this yourself then 
ClassAction has the ability to work this out 
itself- If you pass it a few files of the same 
type it can analyse them, see what is the 
same in all of them, and work out how to 
recognise them in the future. 




If you are the sort of person that likes a neat and tidy hard drive with as few extra icons and 
Hies dotted around as possible then this could be of use to you, if you install a gome on your 
hard drive, 9 out of W times you hove to set up some assigns - usually the name of the disks 
you ore copying the game off. This means you hove to create a separate script hie to do all the 
assigns and run the program . 

Easy Assign lets you make these assigns from the icon you run the gome from which allows 
you to keep things a little more in order. To use Easy Assign , copy it to your C directory from 
where it can be run . Next you need to find the game or program you want Easy Assign to work 
on, you must first change the game's icon from a Tool to a Project type of icon - if you use 
Swaxinfo you con use that to do the job „ otherwise you will need to use the IconEdh program , 

Once you have done this, set the default tool to EasyAssign i» then for each assign you want 
to make add a new Toottype called ASSIGN— <devk:e name> for every assign you want to 
make . You can also run other programs beforehand using the PROG=<name of program> 
Tooltype , Once all of these have been done the game the icon belongs to will be rum 


Lu PE 


Author: Frank Toepper 

Workbench 2-04 


In one small sentence, lupe magnifies an 
area of the screen - that is about the size of 
it. As far as magnifying programs go, Lupe 
does about everything you need. You can 
open it on any screen from its menu, and a 
handy scroll bar lets you easily change the 
magnification level. As far as speed is con- 
cerned, it is pretty quick and there is a spe- 
cific 020 optimised version so you can 
squeeze every last CPU cycle out of It.

These are two tiny programs t hat change the wdy Workbench displays its icons. Normally, icons 
have to have o bevel box around them and they have to be opaque, so you cannot see 
through them. These two programs, No fill and No Draw, allow you to stop your Amiga doing 
both these things and can moke your icon $ look much more natural without the forced bevel. If 
you want a bevel around an icon you can draw it yourself. 

You can either run both the programs 6y adding them to your startup-sequence or f much 
easier, drop them into the WBStortUp drawer. The NoFill command can cause problems with 
norma/ icons as certain co/ours become see through and the icons con look speckled. The 
NoFill program is of greatest use to people who use Newlcons, in which case these programs 
can make your icons look much better.

To use the following pro- 
gram you need to have 
the Magic User 
interface v3.2 installed 
on yaur system. Without 
it you will not be able to 
run any MUi program. MUI is available from 
any wad PD house. 


Shell Bench 


Author: Nick Christie 
Workbench 2.04 Magic User Interface y3-X 

is the quickest way to run a program 
opart from double-didung on its icon? That's 
right, use Workbench's execute function. If 
you hit right Amiga F q smut! requester pops 
op into which you can type the name of the 
program you want to run. There are prob- 
lems with this though. Firstly r it completely 
torts the Workbench which is not good, and 
s madly, you hove to type the entire path of 
the program in. 

SheHBench gives you a completely sepa- 
rate program that runs any program sepa- 
rately from Workbench r It has € history 
msfht like the normal Amiga Shell, that you 
am scroll through using the up and down 
cursor keys. It mil also do filename comple- 
tion, so if you type part of a file name and 
then hrf Tabr ShellBench does its best fo 
compete toe name. If it comes up with more 
than one answer you con cycle through them 
tit! by pressing Tab again . Hit shift and help 
and you get a file requester allowing you to 
add d program or File this way. You can even 
assign your favourite programs fo the 
function keys for quick retrieval 



TaskBar v5.2 


Author: Robert Ennals 

Workbench 2.04 

Windows 95 fever is sweeping the nation, and 
this programmer took a shine to the task bar 
that you gel on the bottom of the screen in 
Windows 95, 

His Amiga version performs the same func- 
tions, giving you a quid and easy way to jump 
to different programs and windows by clicking 
on the buttons that appear on the task bar. 

There is a text-based preference file that 
comes with I ask Bar and this needs to be 
copied into the ElWARt drawer in the prefer- 
ence drawer. This preference file lets you 
change a number of points about how TaskBar 
works. You can vary the number of buttons and 
the width of the bar, but the main use is to 
allow you to add program* to its bunch win- 
dow. If you dick on the Start button this pops 
up a menu that lists programs that TaskBar can 
launch, and these are defined in the preference 
file

PPCON 


Author: Stephan Fuhrman 

Workbench 204 

It really is amazing how many good ideas made it into Workbench 2 and 
even more into version 5, yet so few are used in the standard Amiga pro- 
grams that you get with your Amiga, Stuff like Applcons and 
AppWmdows that allow you to drop icons into program's windows. 

How many times have you been using the shelf on the Workbench 
and the file name that you are about to type in is there on the screen, 
but there b simply no way to get the file name into the shell without 
having to type the complete path in. 

Until now, that is, Appcon turns your shell window into an 
AppWindow that you can drop icons and drawers into. If you copy the 
program into your C directory when you type AppCon you will now be 
able to drop icons into the window and its name will appear. 

You will probably be best editing the Shell-Startup found in the 5 
directory which is run by every shell before starting, and any commands 
you place in there will be run before hand. 


TolleUhr 


Author: Gunther Niki 

Workbench 3.0 


What time is it? I don't know. Well you 
should, and with TolleUhr you will have 
no excuses. If you imagine an analogue 
dock, much better looking than any digi- 
tal one, that you can resize, change the 
shape of the hands, face and even the 
colours that everything is drawn in then 
that is TolleUhr. 

There is no installer with TolleUhr so 
you will have to copy everything across 
fay hard, hut there is not very much 
involved in this. Most importantly, you 
have to rename and copy the correct 
tolieuhrjibrary into your Libs drawer. If 
you only have an 68000 processor, the 
one in the A500, then get rid of ,000 and 
copy it across into your Libs drawer 

All the options are changed through 
TolleUhr' s menus - this is not the easiest 
way to go about things but if works and 
you have to do it as the initial settings 
are horrible. When you have got every- 
thing as you want, you can move and 
resize the dock wherever you like and 
then save your options.

UrouHack vl .7 


Author: Time Urou 

Workbench 2,04 


I originally put this on the coverdisk out of 
curiosity. It's a little hack that changes the 
look of Gadtool buttons which is great but is 
not realty of any use is it 1 Well, this latest 
version is just getting plain silly. 

Instead of just giving you the choice a few 
different looking system gadgets, which 
would be lair enough, this version now lets 
you create your own system gadgets. If you 
do not like the ones that come with 
UrouHack, fire up your copy of D Paint and 
draw your own. Using good old Datatypes, 
UrouHack can accept IF images and; replace 
the normal window gadgets, check marks 
and radio buttons with these. Finally, 


UrouHack comes with a lull installer that will 
install the program and all UrouHacks files, 
and also allows you to change your prefer- 
ences afterwards. Before you use the 
installer you need to remove your old 
UrouHack line from your Startup-Sequence - 
if you already have an older version. 

You should remember that UrouHack is a 
hack and does not work perfectly with all 
programs. The main problem is with it 
changing the size of window borders. This 
either looks bad, or at worst it will crash your 
machine, as it does with StormC. Therefore, I 
wqould recommend you try that out first 
before you install UrouHack

news and e-mails. This just leaves the subject 
of setting up AmfTCP so you can send out 
e-mails. 

At the end of last month's guide you wilt 
have already installed what is known as an 
SMTP Daemon. This watches out for new mail 
that is destined for your machine appearing 
on your Internet provider's mail server. When 
you first link up, every few minutes the 
Daemon checks to see if there is any new 
mail, [f there is it is automatically downloaded 
from the mail server to the correct mail box in 
your UUMaH directory. 

On top of this you need a number of other 
small programs that many mail programs 
need to allow mails to be sent from your 
machine to wherever their destination may 
be. If you used the Demon DIS95 installer, all 
these programs have been already set up for 
you and are happily running in the back- 
ground sending the mail off. If you did not use 
the Demon installer then you will have to get 
hold of the programs that handle e-mail dis-

Qnternational rescue 


The internet is a worldwide phenomena, and you c an quiet easily find yourself com- 
municating with people from all over the world and not even realise it Due to the 
international nature of the Internet you would have expected to be able to use the 
international characters that are available in the ASCII character set For English 
and American users these are not used very much except for the British E sign, but 
every other country in the world will need access to umlauts and the other accents 
found in French and German and most other non-English languages l 

The problem is that normal e-mail only uses 7-bits per character, where as ASCII 
requires 8-bits. So if you try to use a pound sign or any of the other international 
characters they just appear as spaces fo the recipient o f the e-mail. 

The only way a round this situation is to either a uencade your original mail - a lit- 
tle round the houses - or use a MIME mailer Using MIME you can specify to send e- 
moifs in a number of different formats that will keep all of the international charac- 
ters intact Along with being able to send text encoded as 8ase64 f you can tell your 
mailer la send it as the normal 7-bit or full ASCII 8-bit As standard the MIME form 
of text is called quoted-printable and will send you text, so it will not be affected by 
the normal 7-bit e-mail limit, even though you should be aware that text that you 
send is ward wrapped fo 70 chars across. Therefore, if you send a uuencoded file 
using a MIME mailer you should select 7 -bit text as this reproduces what a standard 
mailer will do

lems after this, try reducing the modem speed. 
Once installed you are ready to rock and roll, 
apart from the fact you may need to get hold 
of a mail package. Many people use the Uni* 
ports of Elm or Pine, but these are a little com- 


plicated to set up and I prefer something 
more straightforward, A demo of the new 
package Voodoo is available on Ami net and 
also Metaled is worth a look if you use MUl. 


installed - this is already in place so you can 
say no. The second point is that it will ask you 
where you wart a number of direaories cre- 
ated, but again these are already in place so 
you can proceed past all of these without 
worry. 

The installer will then ask you for various 
details about your Internet account and then 
your modem setup. Do not worry about the 
modem details as Song as your modem Is 
Hayes compatible, which it should be. When 
it Bsks you if you want to change your 
uuli&config file say no because you should 
have already created this. And that is it 
Amconnect will handle all your setting up 
and logging on to your Internet account If the 
program has trouble connecting to your 
modern go to the modem setup and change 
the ATfibl to AT and make sure all the other 
entries are in capitals If you still have prob- 

Qoodoo 

The latest, ond in some people's opinion r the greatest 
mailer for the Amiga or any computer , Voodoo is a 
MIME compliant mailer that provides many feature s f 
some of which are unique to Voodoo . The first thing 
yotr o re going to notice is that with Voodoo , oil your 
octms are performed from o single good looking and 
simple-to-use GUL 

Voodoo works slightly differently from other moil 
programs Usually mail programs iteep the destination 
mail boxes that are created by the SMTP Daemon t hut 
each time you start Voodoo you ask it to collect mail 
from these files. It will then extract each mail and cre- 
ate a separate file in its own corresponding mail 
tStetihry* 

The demo version of Voodoo only allows you to 
have a single mail box ; but the fully-registered version 
allows you to have os many as you like. After you 
hove installed Voodoo , which is done for you via a 
normal install script t you will need to point each 
Voodoo mail box at the correct mailbox spool fife 

Orice this is setup, Voodoo will extract all the files 
from this spool file and generate a list of all the mails 
in it For each mail the various MIME parts of it are 
displayed as icons as part of the speed button bar 
that runs across the middle of the window , These 
albw you to jump fo each different section of o mail 
wtth text pictures and sounds all being displayed in 
the s xrokabie window. Even uuencoded mail can he 


handled automatically with Ore file being automatical- 
ly decoded ready for you to save it off os the correct 
binary fife 

When creating mails you can J insert f new parts to a 
moil using a file requester, Voodoo then automatically 
takes care of packing it in the mail just as it takes 
care of unpacking ii Currently j you can save off sepa- 
rate MIME sections but there is no way to view pic- 
tures an its own screen - you have to moire do with 
the representation in the Voodoo window. Nothing 



_ ( t On* l#i* mpi! r 

Anti** *mf H sfrtiw* 


can be perfect and there are a few problems with 
Voodoo . t moinly with its interface. For starters, the pro - 
grammer is on some sort of personal crusade about 
the fact the Amigo does not have any built-in public 
screen support Because of this he has refused to 
inc/ode any option in the program to select a screen 
to run Voodoo on . This forces you to use n secondary 
program such as Screen Wizard to allow Voodoo 
to open on its own screen. He is making a valid 
point, but there is no need to inhibit your program 
over it 

Another problem arises from the mod list and the 
mail viewer being lumped into one window, if you 
have a good number of moils in your mail box you 
are stuck fo having a fairly small view af this list - if 
would be much better to have a separate mail list 
window. This would also open the possibility of being 
able fo read more than one mail at once, which would 
be nice . 

The other problem that arises from the GUI is if a 
mail has more MIME parts than icons that fit in the 
tool bar. This means you will never be able to access 
them f as their icons are not accessible unless you con 
make the window bigger. Something allowing you to 
scroll through all the icons would be needed in this 
situation. 

These ore only minor quibbles and overall Voodoo 
is on excellent program that is very easy to use. 


Ejetatool 
^ m 

This is another MIME mail reader, and one that we use in the office. It uses 
MUl which some of you may not like but it is totally based on listviews that 
are very speedy to use. MetaTool is completely multithreaded, so every win- 
dow opened in MetaTool works independently of the others. Therefore, you 
can have multiple mail box windows open as well as being able to read as 
many maib as you like. 

K you followed last month's guide, once you have extracted MetaTool it is 
ready to run. The only thing you will need to change rs MetaTooTs Maiicap 
file. For each MIME type you need to specify what external program should 
be used to view it Normally Mufti View will be fine, but you need to make 
sure the path of Multiview is correct - this should be sysiutiiities/mukiview 
otherwise MetaTool will not be able to find MultMew to run. 

! MetaTool uses the standard mail boxes generated by the SMTP Daemon, 
and each time you open a mail box MetaTool scans the file generating an 
index file and mail list The current version will also automatically update vf 
new mail arrives while yap are online, so you do not have to quit the 

j I program, li may not be as flash as Voodoo but it is simple and fast to use. . n u*v* to d**f with jui m«ir, c* Four provides a powerful interface

me 

When it was released in 1995, the Reno was acclaimed 
to be the product that brought a bit of style, innovation 
and flair into the all too-uniform CD drive market. 
While everyone else was trying to outdo each other in 
terms of speed, going from triple- . to quad- r then six- 
speed or above. Media Vision released a relatively slow 
dual- speed drive that still makes more sense for the 
average Amiga owner, 

In a world of square hardware, the chic Reno is 
sleek, wedge-shaped and unashamedly purple. It fea- 
tures prominently mounted controls you can adjust 
wtihoeif tweezers,. it's lightweight and, unlike ifs office- 
oriented rivals, it looks like a gadget you can have a bit 
of fun with. 


As indeed it is. Uniquely, the Reno can be trans- 
formed from a multimedia workhorse into a portable 
audio CD player fit for irritating fellow passengers on 


use without the mains lead after a while. 

But, of course, the Reno is mentioned here because 
it can also be transformed into a CD-ROM drive. Users 


simply attach the docking station - a small adaptor 
that is easily snapped on and off at the base - and 
plug it into a Squirrel SCSI interface- From thereon it

JOUBTS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF CD 


Until recently CO was seen as the ley to multimedia* it 
was going to open the doors to the information revolu- 
tion everyone has been banging on about for so long, 
and software/hardware manufacturers everywhere 
.ere jumping on the bandwagon in search of a fast 
buck. 

Certainty the CD market has proved vitally important 
for not only the development of multimedia on the IPC 
However, this medium's importance in the future 
becomes increasingly questionable as possibilities for 
multimedia applications on the World Wide Web 
increase, Already, Sun s Java is allowing users of the 
Web to interact with a rim died content, and as on-line 
technology improves the importance of CD may decline. 

Long-term, the CD ROM is likely to prove to he an 


intermediate technology, successfully filling the gap until 
on-line capability is both widespread and efficient {Le. 
fast, cheap, and easy to use), which may be len or more 
years away 1 ' claims future Media, a recent report on 
interactive technology from the London Business School. 
Mriny agree that Bill Cates, who himself admits to have 
been wrongfooted by the speed of the Net's develop- 
ment may indeed have gone down the wrong pErth for 
once. 

For the consumer, however, this will remain an area 
of purely academic interest at the moment It may be 
that CDs eventually become no more glamorous than 
the floppy disks that preceded them, but they are likely 
to remain equally indispensable peripherals for a long 
time to come.

OWER QUAD 


Probably one of the easiest options 
for AG00/ A] 200 owners. Power sell this 
quad as a kit that comes with a Squirrel SCSI 
interface and the relevant software to set 
it up. 

Typically for most drives from Power 
Computing, rfe big and takes up a bit more 
desk space than is necessary. That said, it 
has a sturdy metal casing and a good record 
of reliability behind it, which is ultimately 
more important 

Praise is due for the simple but helpful 
inclusion of a SCSI ID address selector, 
which means you don't have to mes$ with 
biros and microscopic switches when setting 
the drive up. If only other manufacturers 
would follow this example, life would be 
that bit easier. 

For those who want to listen to audio- 
CDs on their drive, there's the usual audio 
leads, headphone socket and volume dial, 
plus the necessary software provided on 
disk. 

Most importantly, however, is the fact that 
this is one of the best value starter kits avail- 
able for the* standard Amiga 1200/600. It's 
not six speed, but as a quad it's fast enough 
for most current uses. Furthermore, it's exter- 
nal and it comes supplied with a Squirrel, 
which is an invaluable piece of hardware in 
itself, plus CD32 emulation software which 
will allow you to play CD games. 



behaves just like any other SCSI drive. 

Of course, nothing's perfect. Compared 
to the other drives on test as a dual-speed 
it's relatively slow, and the Reno appar- 
ently won't play Mpeg movies. But since the Amiga so far remains sadly 
lacking in the a f I- s i n gi n g- a ll-d a n c i n g multimedia department, this is 
unlikely to be a problem for most Amiga owners at the moment. 
Certainly, it is adequate for enjoying the wealth of PD CD titles currently 
available. 

Another slight fear is that, being a lightweight portable, it doesn't feel 
as durable as something like the Power Quad. But then you wouldn't 
want to foot-tap round the park with Power's monolithic drive round your 
neck, would you? 

Basically, the Reno is a rare example of a hybrid product that really 
works in both its guises. As a CD- ROM it represent reasonable value in 
teetfp but the fact it converts to a portable diseplayer makes it a bargain 
that must not be overlooked.

LEXTOR SIX 
SPEED 



Another ultra-fast drive here, but the Plextor 
initially looks less attractive than the Toshiba 
or Goldstar because of its pike tag. 
However, SCSI drives always cost more than 
their fcDE counterparts, partly because they 
can be chained together with numerous 
other peripherals and also because the SCSI 
interface is generally considered more 
advanced. 

The control facia actually looks slightly 
more consideted than is the case with most 
of the other drives tested- Two LCD lights 
may not sound like much of an advantage, 
but in the past they've given me a clue as to 
whafs been going wrong when the drive 
hasn't been working. Track advance controls 
are also obviously better for audio CDs. 

Ifs strange, then, to find that an otherwise 
modern unit is still using a caddy loading 
tray. So what, you ask? Having already lost 
two caddies in the past, and knowing that 
even the cheapest drives come with the nor- 
mal mechanical tray, I just find them unnec- 
essarily cumbersome. Otherwise, those who 
want a combination of a high-speed drive 
plus the convenience of a SCSI interface 
should give it a thought - though for most, 
Power's Quad will represent a better overall 
package.

with other drive-standards like support for 
CD-DA, and the motorised tray mechanism. 

Until more multimedia CD products ar& 
produced due value of such a fast drive is 
debatable. But being an IDE drive (which you 
should be able to use wrtft Btittersofi's ATAPt 
interface) the Goldstar six-speed is extremely 
affordable and is recommended 


OSHIBA 


This drive looks boring and has 
nothing on the surface to distin- 
guish ft from any of the others. 

But - and it's a big but - it's six 
speed, and it costs just E76. 

At that price you r d be mad 
not to consider it as an option, 
though it 1* of course, an inter- 
nal IDE drive for use with the 
ATAPI interface, It includes all 
the standard features you'd 
expect of an up-to-date drive, 
though unlike SCSI units you can't use it at the same time as six other 
peripherals. That said, many of us can do without that luxury. 

Beyond the fact that Toshiba drives are a well-respected make - in fact 
Toshiba mechanisms are what you'll find at the heart of many of the CD 
ROMs made by Amiga stalwarts - there's not a lot more to be said. This is 
an efficient, super fast drive at an incredibly affordable price,

UST PLUG, NO NEED TO PRAY 


Plug and Play - (his was the bun term that heralded the 
Launch of Microsoft's much -vaunted Windows 95, After

operating system every time they wanted to use a new 
peripheral, si last they rould buy a CD drive end simply 
connect and go'. Plug-and-Play was Hailed in newspa 
per* as a gre^t innovation and the future of mufti media 
computing. 

Of course, those wise to the Microsoft propaganda 
machine knew Plug-and-Play was a new name for an 
rslabfished idea, in fad as multimedia specialists like 
SCALA wilt testify, the Amiga has long tt^en a Plug and- 
Play auto- configuring machine In other words, you don't 
have to be a techie to broaden your Anuta's horitonv by 
connecting a CO drive.

far the most popular of these is the affordable Squirrel 
for the At 100/600, 

When looking at buying a CO drive for use with the 
Squirrel, it's worth remembering that many Amiga spe- 
cialist dealers sell them as part of a bundle. Bear in mind 
when first connecting tip that the pins on the Squirrel's 
plug are fragile, so if you’re too rough you can knacker Hi 
before you've even got round to reading the instructions. 

Owners of big hot Amigas like the Ad 000 wilt have to 
use either Siren's Data flyer or Octagon's controller card 
if they want to use SCSI drives 

A more recent alternative lor Amiga users is fhr ATAPI 
IDE interface from B hirer so ft which allows you 1o buy 
the cheapest drives on the market though it's not as 
flexible an option as SCSI. Whatever you choose, make 
sure you buy the right sort of drive for the right sort of 
interface

0 D'ROM burners, once the exclusive 
province of large multi-national 
companies, are becoming cheaper 
and cheaper, just like other tonv 
puter media. Where once you could expect to 
pay -1000 for a single speed burner equipped 
with primitive software, you could now buy 
about four of these jobbies and be able to 
write to disc aft twice the speed you previously 
experienced. It is possible that CD-ROM writers 
wifi replace DAT tape streamers as the bed up 
medium of choke, given the sturdiness of a 
gold disc compared to the relative frailty of DAT 
tapes, and now that the cost is coming down 
rapidly, and the write speed is increasing, per- 
haps CD-ROM burners will become a viable 


alternative. 

Of course, backing up data is merely one of 
the options available to you once you have a 
CD-ROM burner, Amiga owners who also have 
the MasterlSO software from As im ware, 
creators of AsimCDFS, will have the ability to 
compile music CDs of their work with existing 
12- and 16-bit sampling cards like the Toccata, 
and also make CD-ROMs that will boot on a 
CD 52, But mole on that later, Lefs first have a 


look at the physical aspects of the burner. 





Frank Nord 

examines a 
tool that is 
coming into 
the reach of 
Amiga owners 


Looks 

As you might expect the KP402Gi doesn't look 
much different from ordinary CD-ROM drives, 
with the obvious exception of there being a 
write status LED which glows red when there is 
data being written to a gold disc The case itself 
is pretty much fully enclosed so you won't have 
to worry too much about touching static sensi- 
tive components as you are inserting it into 
your machine. The connections at the rear of 
the drive will also be instantly familiar to exist- 
ing owners of CD-ROM drives, with the stan- 
dard SCSI and power connectors, four-way 
audio lead and jumpers. All these are very 
dearly marked so that you don't plug the SCSI 
cable in the wrong way. for instance,, and the 
jumpers aren't too difficult to get to. 

The drive functioned just fine with both the 
Standard A3000 SCSI controller and the 
Oktagon we have at work, and performance 
under them was almost identical. However, 
before you rush out to buy yourself one of 
these beauties it is worth remembering that 
you will need some other items on your SCSI 



Uxft MoifirJSO 
tf simpt* procedure, 
thtiag all the fifes In 
ppyr directory so you 
tun build your image 


chain. Of course, you'll Ere able to dump that 
CD-ROM drive you already have, unless, like 
me, you like to listen to audio CDs while you're 
working. 

More importantly, you will need some hard 
drive storage space. We re talking about serious 
amounts of hard drive storage space here now. 
For a start, you'll need somewhere to keep alE 
your file* while you are working on them on 
the hard drive, then you'll need somewhere to 
store your ISO image once you have built ii 
Now there's not much point devoting a whole 
gig drive for files if you can only Fit 650Mb's 
worth onto a CD r but you’ll -still need about 
1.3Gb just for CD development (these drives 
needn't actually be SCSI Master ISO works just 
as well using an IDE drive for this purpose, it's 
just that you will need a SCSI controller for the 
CD burner ftsef). This shouldn't prove too big 
(or expensive) a problem these days. 

But there might be another pitfall in the lurk- 
ing form of the dreaded Rigid Disk Block which 
will limit the amount of space you can devote 
to hard drives to a paltry 4.3Gb. Well, it might 
seem like a tot to start with, but rf you are going 
to be developing CD^ you! soon feel the strain 
of keeping within those limits. 

Using Master I SO is pretty painless - you 
simply point it at a hard drive or directory and it 
lists all the files therein. From there you can 
build an ISO image onto another partition and 
finally write that image onto the CD-ROM gold 
disc. Although it doesn't seem like a lot of 



yOU BURNT MY 

This drive is great Once you have actually created an 150 
image of whatever you want to put onto CD it only takes 
about half an hour to write the whole lot onto disc ■„ Of 
course, compiling the data and building the ISO image 
might take you a lot longer, but that's life I guess. 

One of the uses I have considered putting it to would be 
to dump my whale Work partition to it all 450Mbs. That 
way 1 can then use all that space for other things like 
frames from Lightwave or dip art, etc. and my programs 


will never get corrupted. Okay so they wont load os fast 
from CD os from my hard drive # but then it s not like hav- 
ing to reload programs over and over again in a single 
session, so the slowdown won't cause too mony problems. 

As for whether I think you might have a use for it well I 
drink that if you are currently looking to buy a DAT drive 
and don't have a CD-ROM, it might be worth the extra 
cash to get one of these drive s. The medta doesn't cost as 
much and they have more than one use.

soffovare for its asking p-rice, it is essential for 
anyone using a burner on an Amiga. If, of

Amiga Computing 


o you bought yourself a CD32. 
Okay r so it may've been a good 
idea at the time because the 
future which was rumoured to be 
ahead was looking mighty fine and games 
companies were interested 1 in releasing top 
qu dirty games. After a!f it was the first 32-bit 
machine available - well before the likes of 
the Playstation or Saturn - and all that was 
lacking was the support. And to this day, 
companies are still very hesitant about 
releasing software for it - and quite rightfy 
so. 

So can you continue to play delights such 
as Cannon Fodder and Microcosm for the 
rest of your life? I don't think so. 

There were no actual games on the CD32 
which took advantage of the machine's capa- 
bilities. Unfortunately, all we saw were con- 
versions from the AT 200 floppy version so 
the CDs were released when they weren't 
even half full Something should have been 
done then but CD 32 owners were left pretty 
much in the dark. And once again, it we$ left 
for someone else to dig Commodore out of 
their hole, 

Eyetech are the masterminds behind this 
fabulous way of turning your CD32 into a 
fully functioning A12Q0, making proper use 


Tired of using your 
CD32 for games. 
Now you can turn it 
into an A1200 
with the SX-32 
Module. Andy

at the back of the machine, although it's not 
just a case of taking the screw out and sliding

it in. Firstly, you wilt Nave to take all the 
screws out of the main plastic base, making 
sure not to dislodge the laser ribbon, and 
then you have to stand the ltd up vertically 
sticking it down with two sticky pads to aid 
you, although it may be handy to get some* 
one to hold it while you firmly slide the mod- 
ule into the expansion port while the actual 
board slides over the metaf casing. 

All you have to do then is screw it up 
tightly so you don't see the board through 
the side of the CD32. The whole 
process itself caused me no problems

OLOUR COORDINATION 


if'j difficult to see the Amiga A 1 200 in such a mismatch package, it's all in bits and the CD32 
if and always has been an add blue/grey colour while the rest of Amigo's equipment has 
■j'iwjjfi been white or c ream. So what exactly was the thinking behind the design ? Was it 
because they were bod} meant to be completely different pieces of kit? 

the only real downpoint of the module is the colour scheme, The cream keyboard and 
foppy may not look suited next to the blue-like case of the CD32 and powerpack, but who's 
tomptoining? If the keyboard was a blue cotour similar to that of the CDTV It may look slightly 
note professional but nowhere near as Amiga or home computerlike.

ihisoever and rt managed to slide in with 
ease and perfectly in conjunction with the 
instructions- 

The module has five ports on the back 
which give you the access an A 1200 can 
afar. The Parallel port enables you to con- 
nect lo a printer or onto another Amiga using 
i Garnet cable, the Serial port lets you con- 
nect Eo a Modem or another networking 
nethoif via Sernei and the VGA port in the 
middle is for a VGA monitor. The external; 
Happy drive will fix up to the drive port and 
farty there's the video port so you can use 
m ordinary RGB output for a much sharper 
picture than the composite, which is your 
only option with a standalone CD32. if you 
Tike a look at the bade of an AT 200 you will 
« the SX-32 module now has every port 
”e A12Q0 has to offer. 

That's about all the installation there is - 
the only thing left ts to sort the hard drive 
aut There Is an installation disk with utilities

software, and something which CD 32 own- 
ers have never been able to get their heads 
arnund ~ saving. Before, there was always a 
complicated key method lor locking and 
Unlocking save games built in to the CD32's 
hardware. Finally, you can output all your 
own files to the hard drive inside or on a 
floppy via the floppy drive. 

What makes the SX-32 module a dream 
to use is that the actual CD32 unit isn't really 
modified in any way. Basically^ they are a If 
peripherals which merely add-on to the unit 
itself. For instance, if you have never opened 
your casing out of curiosity you would never 
believe there is so much room inside. The 
hard drive works away quietly and quickly 
and certainly makes all the difference, /r^

enabling you to read and configure and then 
partition your hard drive perfectly. Our hard 
drive was 240Meg which is quite amazing 
when you imagine it's merely a CD32. In 
fact, it's impossible to think there is a hard 
drive in the CD32. 

With the SX-32 module you can make 
use of the AGA chipset, graphic and sound

ALL CHANGE 


One of the problems you may come up against is the need far a floppy drive, if you've 
bought yourself a CD32 it's unlikely you wall have a floppy drive knocking about Eyetech 
are selling them for £44,95 but it may be worthwhile looking around For a second hand 
Happy drive. You could probably pick one up tor about £5 to £15. 

Alter totalling up the prices of the various peripherals it may seem rather expensive, but 
at the end a l the day, if you've already spent nearly £3 00 on the CD32 itself, maybe it 
would be worthwhile to invest further to make use of the money you've already spent The 
only other options are to put it away to coifed dust or revitalise it by turning it into what the 
CD32 should have been.

Questions & answer 



A50Q/32GG is 1 . Try and run Scala or Gloom or 
load a Jpeg, etc and see how easy it b, Ef only 
you lot would wake up and expand/upgrade 
your systems (A500/600s are dead), then 
maybe the world would take note. 

Q., Why do people think of the Amiga as a 
games machine and not a serious PC? 

A. Because just about every user/mag spends 
most of its time reviewing games (look at the 
adverts for the Amiga Magic bundle and what 
do you see - games!), and going on about 
competing with the console market, etc The 
A 1 200 doesn't even come with a hard drive or 
monitor as standard. 


disappointed that their favourite Doom 
done only runs sluggishly on a quarter 
screen on their machine, but when I ask 
about an upgrade, they shrug it off as being 
too expensive to play games. Any Doom 
game is going to be expensive - a lot of pro- 
cessing power is needed to generate all 
those 3D graphics - hut people would 
rather bemoan the fact that AB3D2 is too 
slow, or that Breathless looks rubbish. 



Q. Why don't PC mags mention tfie Amiga? 

At Because they don't care (they do mention 
Macs). If you lot would build up your machines 
and stop slagging off other platforms, then the 
software houses would be back in droves and 
we would have a platform that could compete. 

This letter is dragging on so I won't write much 
more You probably think 1 am a PC convert 
and you wouldn't be far wrong, but I love my 
Amiga just as I love PCs, Macs and just about 
all other platforms - don't knock them until 
you have tried them. 

The thing is that if we only stopped griping 
and whining we would soon see that we need 
to tell the world we want to move on, so it can 
help us. Imagine Netscape, Word, Lotus 123, 
etc. on the Amiga, it can happen if we want it 
to. 

Finally, sorry there's no "great mag' and all 
that, but you don't need me to tell you what 
you already know. 

Kevin Anderson Waltham Abbey 

A combative stance there from Kevin, and 
one I think a lot of people In the Amiga 
community now share. Unfortunately, it 
often seems as though the people who were 
upgrading their machines are now the peo- 
ple who have left the Amiga and gone onto 
the PC r or other platform, while those that 
never spent a penny on their machines now 
form the main body of Amiga users and can 
be justly accused of b^ing moaning minnies. 

I have had people telling me that they are 








I hare had an Amiga since the OS 1.2 ASQO 
and would never think erf leaving the platform, 

I also have a Pentium PC which, funnily 
enoogjh. cost me less than my A 1 200 setup. 

Anyway; to the point of my letter. I read just 
about all the Amiga magazines that have any 
serious content and am sick and tired of read- 
ing sad letters from whining Amiga users 
about Escom, AT, software houses, PC and 
Mac users, etc and how they are all out to get 
the Amiga or how the Amiga isn't supported 
property. 

Then you get the 'lemon heads' (sour 
faced) going on about how the Amiga multi- 
bus better than any system built Remember 
you cm only multitask as far as your physical 
RAM permits without an MMLL If 5 great being 
abfe to multitask, but if your machine slows to 
a halt to do it it ain't mu ch good. 

So. I would like to ask a couple of 
suesbons and. answer a few: 

1 . Why did we lose the best bits from 051 .2, 
i.e, no borders around icons, diskdoctor, 

NotePad PM (performance monitor), memory 
map, the graphical tutor (The Very First, if you 
remember it) and Say? 

1 Why do we slag off D05 and Windows 3.x 
so much when they at least gome with Virus 
Scan, Defrag, ScanDisk, move, Compressed 
backup, disk doubler, file manager, word; 
processor, card file, Paintbrush, media player, 
sound recorder, Terminal, on-line help, unfor- 
rrat undelete, proper sounds, object linking 
(QlE), extensive printer drivers and a proper 
riiptaard as standard? 

3l Why do we say that the Amiga is the only 
system that can be used straight out of the 
bo*? Have you ever tried typing a letter on a 
1Y saeen? If you have. I'll be surprised if you 
can now read this. The Amiga is only good for 
games out of the box, you need a monitor for 
any sort of serious use (standard on a PC you 
don't even get one with the £2000+ A4000) 

Now, here are my answers to some 
questions: 

q Why don't the software houses write any 
decern software tor the Amiga any more? 

A Because you are so tied up slagging off 
other platforms and 'How they spend so 
much on upgrading their systems to tun the 
latest software and how great my standard 

Excuses, ex 

I like to make two observations arising from articles 
in the March issue. Firstly, with regard to the article on 
piracy, any person that uses the cost of games as an 
excuse to buy pirated games (or indeed any software) is 
?eing a touch cheeky. The quick answer to this rather 
rm postulation is to wart for a while and the price will 
almost certainly fall to a lower level. 

I waited until both Eye of the Beholder 1 and 2 were at 
FI 5,99 instead of E3Q before making a purchase, and the 
games themselves did not diminish one iota in the mean- 
lime The same can be said of more recent games as well 
both Gleam and Alien Breed can now be bought for 
mder £20 and neither can be described as expensive at 
this price. 3 have purchased them both from Special 
Reserve Mail Order at £1 9.99 and must say that they are a 
t^gain. Most game prices will fall after the initial release 


to a very acceptable price, so lefs have no more of ihb 
‘games are too expensive' crap. 

My next point arises from the review of the PD effort 
Deluxe Patman A 1200 and the comment that the pro- 
grammer deserves the fee he asks for. I agree with this 
and indeed I did so back on 1 3 December last year when 
I sent the required fee (by registered post) for the regis- 
tered game with its extra levels, etc to Mr VigdaL 1 then 
heard nothing for two months, so sent a letter to Mr 
Vigdsl asking for confirmation as to whether he had 
received my payment or not. It has now been over a 
month since l sent my last letter and, as yet I have had no 
reply. Even allowing for the shortcomings of the postal 
service (which ore few and far between - Ed) t this is a 
sad state of affairs. 

All things considered, I would be reluctant to send 


money to another PD programmer in light of this experi- 
ence and would urge all programmers to honour their 
commitments if they wish to continue with their trade. 

Neil Adams, Cramer 

1 guess It's a bit like the conversation you can have 
about books. Do you buy the hardback for between 
£1 0 and £20, or do you wait for the paperback version 
to come out at half the price. I know most of my book 
collection is softback but then I suppose there isn't 
the hype over new books that there is over new 
games. As far PD programmers, the vast majority, in 
my experience, are extremely quick ta reply to any 
mail or e-mail and are very happy to receive any sort 
of payment for their program, so I wouldn't let one 
bad experience put you of.

0ETTER SOLUTIONS 



I have been reading your magazine's US edi- 
tion since the demise of Amiga World here, I 
have been impressed overall with the quality 
of your magazine, even with only limited 
&■ coverage of goings on here in the States. 

I must admit, however, that I was not very 
impressed with your response to Mr Jose 
Ferreira's letter in issue 7 of the US edition 
(that's issue 96 - February for European 
readers). While I agree that Amiga 
Technologies is facing an uphill battle trying 
to convince users that the Amiga is a bet- 
ter choice for them than other com- 
puters on the market, ] very much 
disagree that this could be accom- 
plished by making future versions of 
the Amiga more (ike other computers, 

I cannot vouch for the European mar- 
ket, but I do know that if the new 
PowerPC -based Amigas are not better at 
processing graphics and animations than 
Windows or PowerMac systems for the same 
cost, it wiir fail miserably in the US. ! am so 
certain of this that I am willing to put money 
on it fight now, 

You might disagree with me, but remov- 
ing the custom graphics chips from the sys- 
tem to make way for a slower PCI bus 


graphics solution hardly seems like an 
advancement for the Amiga architecture. 
Adding third-party graphics confusion would 
not help the situation, unless Amiga 
Technologies very carefully wrote the stan- 
dard library routines that these proposed 
graphics cards used. If you doubt me, pick 
up any bent for a game written for Windows 
systems and read the system requirements 
section of the cover. If you don't have a 
degree in computer Systems manage- 
ment, don't expect to understand 
what you are reading. 

A much better solution would 
seem to be redesigning the cus- 
tom chips and placing them on 
the system bus, with a slot added 
to the motherboard for an upgrade 
card as better versions of the chip 
become available. This would probably be 
similar to the CPU slot On the A3000/4000 
machines. 

As for the idea that the A 1200 currently is 
a good bargain, again 1 cannot vouch for the 
European market, but here in the US it 
should be possible to put together a 
4660X2 G&MHz system with 16Mb RAM, 64- 
bit SVGA graphics (VLB), a 1Gb hard drive, a 



Qenewal quandary 



I recently received notice that my subscription to Amiga 
Computing is due for renewal AC is a fine magazine - 
no question about that - but I am most hesitant to 
renew, Why? Because in several past issues, columnists 
and editors have urged readers 'to support Amiga 
product dealers, especially during this difficult time of 
transition between the demise of Commodore and the 
establishment of Escom.' ( think that you, as AC, need to 
know what's happening 'out there' with such dealers. 

1 own an Amiga 500 with JMb RAM, one external 
floppy drive and an A570 CD-ROM drive, but no hard 
drive. Obviously, I need to upgrade in order to utilise 
most of the software products reviewed in Amiga 
Computing , But I do not know enough about upgrade 
items such as additional RAM hardware, hard drives and 
interfaces listed in the ads of the dealers. So t wrote a 
letter in mid-November asking the folk at Software Hut, 
Sharon Hill, PA, which of the upgrade units listed in their 
ad would fit my machine. My intention was to order 
such items once I received the needed information, This 
would have amounted to a sizeable order. 


my hesitancy is not crucial, but I mention it to complete 
the picture. The crucial reasons are the obvious useless- 
ness of the adverts since dealers are apparently not too 
interested in selling Amiga products - at least not 
the ones needed to upgrade an A50G. And crucial, 
too, is the uselessness of information and reviews for 
products which will not work on the AS 00, so for 
all practical purposes, I have been shoved out of the 
market, 

I have decided to wait and see what Escom do. Wait 
and see if the Amiga does, indeed, make a comeback, I 
do like my A5Q0. But if I can't obtain needed hardware 
Of information, why should 1 buy a magazine which will 
only add to my discouragement as I read it and realise 
that none of it is for me. 

I would welcome a comment or reply. If I don't hear 
from you, I will add AC to the same list on which l have 
put Software Hut and their kind. If in the future, J find a 
practical use for AC f you will hear from me. And 1 do 
thank you for the service I have received from your 
branch of IDG. 


To date, I have received neither a reply to my fetter, 
nor the letter itself returned by" the Postal Service as 
und elver able, (In other words, I must conclude ft has 
been ignored.) 

Other dealers have been about as unhelpful as 
Software Hut. So where do I have to go for upgrade 
hardware? No dealers near here; I would have to order 
out of the area. How do I support dealers like that? 

Sure, I could use the telephone to obtain the needed 
information. But do you like paying long distance 
charges for 20 or 30 minutes of being on hold until you 
give up in frustration? I am not about to use the phone 
any more. 

Most of the information reviewed or published in AC 
is for units of greater capability than mine. So what good 
is that information to me right now? The last reason for 


Wilfred L Zieken, Branson, WO 

While I sympathise with ydur attempts to contact 
Amiga dealers to help you upgrade your machine, t 
think the genera! consensus of any dealer hearing 
your tale of woe would be that you would probably 
save yourself a whole heap of cash if you just put that 
ageing A50D to one side and bought yourself a new or 
second-hand A 1200 with a hard drive* You would 
need to replace that As 70, but other than that you 
would have a far superior machine to the one you 
currently have, even if you do manage to find the 
remaindered upgrades that are still out there. You 
would also then have a use for 95 per cent of the 
material we publish in AC, and have a pretty decent 
home computer to boot. 






16-bft sound card and Windows 95 for ony 
slightly more than an A 1200 with a BOMfc 
hard drive (less than Si 00 difference if y&g 
shop around). You might have to assernbli 
the system yourself, but at least you would 
have a decent idea of how to fix it if ft evei 
broke down. You would also have the 
advantage of a larger software bast (c 
choose from. It might not be the killei 
graphics system that an A4D0QT is, but ri 
would be considerably less expensive anc 
more versatile overalf. 

Apple Computer has recently discovers 
the problem with trying to market cheap, 
low-end computers in a high-end market bj 
posting a Jfifi million loss for the last quarts 
of 1995. Apple has mostly biamed this lo^S 
on expecting the Macintosh Performs line to 
be the better selling system during the 
Christmas shopping season. In fact, they are 
now backlogged on orders for their A ft

NE WORL 



As an Amiga owner, I feel I have to pOini 
out that not only is the Amiga going down 
the drain, hut so are Macintoshes 
Archimedes and every other mdepeodem 
platform. With the might of Mcroscfi 
behind it can it be long before the only 
machine anyone will be able to buy will 
be a PC done and Windows 95, 96, etc 
This will surely be the endl of computer 
csvilisation because with only one produ- 
cer of software still existing, having 
bought out everyone else, Microsoft will 
be so huge it will take them forever la 
produce new software, and they will onlv 
want to make programs for the PC Many 
companies who produce innovative soft- 
ware for other platforms have been 
absorbed into the Microsoft monster like 
Blue Ribbon Bakery and Wavefront, anti 
where are their products now? You'll 
probably see them again under a difforeii!

Microsoft are now in a position where 
they not only control the operating sys-

JUNE 1996 











Ghfr dealer in town {if that) who might go 
under at any moment. In all of Silicon Valley 
I lave been able to find just one Amiga 
dealer, and they seem to be phasing out 
Itieif Amiga stock- Even small towns in 
id [forma usually have at least one place 
whwe people can get Windows software, 

I Amiga Technologies expect to survive in 
an American computer market, they will 
have to build; a computer that can handle 
graphics and animation significantly better 
than other computers on the market, and do 
it at The same price. This is what the Amiga 
has always been best at being a cheaper 
tt-jfeon to an SCI Indigo series, not a Mac 
dene. 

I hive owned an A3QQD almost since they 
came out and quite admire the little 
whine's powerful graphics abilities, but if 
Amiga Technologies think they can convince 
■ne to purchase a PowerMac done with an 
obscure operating system and a smatf 
software base, they had best rethink the 
Nation. 

Edward K, Smallwood, Scotts Mo/fey, 

California 

i hale 10 pick you up on some of the 


more contradictory statements you have 
made in your tetter to us, Mr Small wood, 
but we really reed to settle the issue. 
First you ask for Amiga Technologies to 
redesign the Amiga graphics chipset to 
be better than the current standards for 
the PC, and then you deride the A1200 
for only being marginally cheaper than a 
486, The reason the AUDI is so expen- 
sive now is purely because of its custom 
chips. If it used a cheap VGA chipset, I'm 
sure the cost could be practically halved 
when in conjunction with other, more 
standard, parts. 

"Adding third-party graphics confu- 
sion', as you say, will be the only way the 
Amiga will be able to catch up with these 
Other platforms. After all, how long do 
you think it would take to design this 
killer graphics chipset? The people who 
work for companies like Cirrus Logic, 
trident Diamond and others have spent 
the last six or seven years purely concen- 
trating on graphics chipset design. You 
then say that the A40Q0T has a killer 
graphics system, when in fact, if Is no 
better than the AOOO s and falls far 
short of any current VGA chipset, fin 


short the best thing the Amiga has goim; 
for it is its operating system, and it is this 
that drags its graphics kicking and 
screaming into the ‘90s and gives it some 
sort of edge over the competition. 

In my opinion, the only way the Amiga 
can survive vs as a top-notch multi-plat- 
form operating system that offers proper 
multimedia functionality for programs 
like Scala, etc. on any platform. AT could 
still make machines, but they should 
license any custom hardware to other 
companies who would then be able to 
make more specialised machines for spe- 
cific purposes like video editing, network 
computing, POI displays, 3D modelling 
and the like. 

The only way to do this is to make 
sure the OS can handle every eventuality 
in terms of libraries for graphics, sound, 
and pretty much every other operation 
that can be updated or even replaced by 
individual manufacturers. There is still an 
awful lot of work to do to achieve this, 
but Amiga Technologies have made a 
start and 1 can only hope, for all Amiga 
users' sake, that they succeed in their 
endeavours.

TER WAS ONCE BITTEN BY A MOOSE... 


Hi, I’m a 20-year old Amiga fan who is going 
to buy the forthcoming A 1200+ in sum- 
mer/early autumn this year. This new 
machine is believed to be powered by the 
™ Motorola Coldfire hybrid Rise processor 
will user-accessible SIMM sockets on the 
^theitoard and should be bundled with a 
%g and Play Internet bundle. Do you have 
further information on the AT 200+ and 
wtal its features will be? 

J really hope the A3 200+ will be a world 
beating machine with a new Workbench 
and Kickstarf on flash ROM for easy upgrad- 
ing. Itcou Id even be called Workbench 06! 

Ditching the AG A chipset and going for an 
emulation of it in a VGA-type system would 
*50 be a good idea because it would allow 


for easy painless upgrades, for example to 
2 4- bit graphics, 16-bit; studio quality sound 
with more channel 3D manipulation and 
more. 

Why not ask AT to sign a deal with RBF 
software to bundle the forthcoming 
OctaMED pro Soundstudio package and 
include the complete set of high quality 
samples from Walkabout Music with the 
A12D0+? Including the new Doom done 
'Breathless 1 in the AT 200+ bundle would 
aEso be an excellent idea, and all at a low 
price! 

Helge Kvalheim, Flakfveit, Norway 

Nice to hear from our Norwegian readers. 
If you've read last month's piece on CeGvt 



96, you'll know a lot more about the 
A 1200+ or Walker, as it is known in 
development. It is unfortunate that the 
ColdFire processor hasn't been used for 
the new machine, but at least it is a 
whole lot faster than a base Aj 200, As for 
Workbench, it would appear that it will be 
updated, but perhaps not as much as we 
would ail like for this machine, The idea 
of having Kkkstavf on a flash ROM might 
also be scuppered by the fact that 
Kickstart will now require a 1Mb ROM to 
sit in, and flash ROMs of that size might 
be extremely expensive. 

Stilt its a start on the way to the 
Power Amiga s of next year and we can all 
hope for an Amiga renaissance! 


NCIENT HISTORY 







mi rooting about in a little used cupboard over the 
uwtenff and discovered a book entitled 'Choosing and 
iiij your home computer, an introductory course. 1 It 
sK published by Orbis in 1984 and to be honest I have 
w^er before read it in any depth. Fascinating stuff, 
ncstly basks about what a net how to do it, as you would 
rdftet but some of the comments make fascinating 
iding in 1 996,. particularly in context with the ongoing 
• •* ga vs. PC saga. 

There is an early comparison between various models 
ah i graph showing how the price of ‘the micro' has 
idm since the Apple II which in 1978 cost £995, down 
trough the various machines until the Commodore 64 
was quoted as 'Approx £200' in 1984. At the end 
d the introduction to that particular graph, the book 
: ‘these are selling prices from dealers of the most 


competitively priced computers with at least 16k of RAM 1 
Wow! One of the comments in the review of the 64 was 
enlightening - 'die User's Guide is of the low standard 
associated with Commodore manuals 1 - they never 
learned, did they? Most of the problems I had as a begin- 
ner were directly associated with the unclear instruction 
manual I received wrth my Al 200, 
i won't bore you with any more, but it serves to high- 
light the current debate between Amiga users in all their 
varieties and the current preference being shown 
towards the PC in certain quarters. 1 read, for instance, in 
the leading PC magazine, that the reason the 486 was 
being offered complete at only £499 {including VAT!), 
was certainly that PC users must ‘now consider the 
Pentium TOO with at least 16Mb RAM as the entry 
point,/, I would only comment from a personal 


viewpoint that as fares I am concerned my Amiga 1200 
with 4Mb RAM and a 170Mb Hard drive, plus my lovely 
Zip drive, all working happily through my HiQ 
Workstation via the Squirrel SCSI interface does all that I 
ask of it, or need it to do. And when using FastVrew, I can 
view all tiie pictures I need in glorious colour as near to 
instantly as makes no difference - so who needs to 
spend much more than £1500 to get a Pentium I GO? 

Ian Aabrttf Hunton r N Yorkshire 

Nice to hear from you again Ian. As Kevin Anderson 
said, people should get whatever best suits their 
needs, and it looks like you've found your ideal 
machine, so Why worry? Even in five years your Amiga 
will still be doing all it is today, which might just still 
be enough for your needs.

I have an Amiga 1 200 with a 1 20Mb 
J tDE hard drive and OS 3.1. 1 curren- 
If Ely plan to buy a CD-ROM drive with 
J a Squirrel interface and also intend 
to buy a larger internal hard drive with 
more space. 

How do I put in the hard drive myself? If 1 
buy a SCSI internal drive would I still need 
The Squirrel interface? Would I still need 
swne kind of interface for a SCSI hard drive? 
tour advice is appreciated.

If you intend to buy a CD-ROM 
drive fur your A 1200 then the 
Squirrel is your best bet r and 
it really is just a case of slot- 
ting it info your PC slot and 
installing, the software. You say you 
intend to buy an internal drive. 

Hits would mean you 
would have to remove the 
current drive you have in 
jfDiir A 1 2D0 as there is sim- 
ple not enough room in an 
AI100 to have two hard 
drives. 

if you intend to replace . 
flair internal IDE drive, which 
lam assuming Is a 2W inch 
drive, fitting a new 2 W inch ts] 
drive is very simple. It is just a 
case of taking the old one out 
of its tray and replacing it with 
Your new one. If you are thinking of 
getting a 3'.^ inch drive this complicates 
things a little more because you will also 
r^d a new interface lead to connect the 
Ji inch drive to a 2% inch connector. 
Dtpending on the siie of the 3'iinch drive, 


Qmage perplex 


it may also be nec- 
essary to modify 
your computer's 
case. 

I would 
think your 
best bet is to 
go for an exter- 
nal SCSI hard 
drive because you 
cannot fit a SCSI 
hard drive internally on 
an Al 200. The difference 
between SCSI and IDE drives is 
that IDE drives have the interface elec- 
tronics built into the drive, while SCSI dri- 
ves rely on an external interface such as 
the Squirrel. Therefore, just owning a SCSI 
interface is not enough. The Squirrel is 
a very good solution because 
you will be able to easily 




I have an Amiga 1 200 with an 850Mb 
J hand drive. Last June I installed Image 

^ FX onto rny DH1 partition and 
deleted it two months later as image 
processing is not really my scene. 

The problem is that now when I load some 
?D utilities, I get the message 'please insert 
imaged - cancel/retry'. Then the program 
<rads with no further problems. Sometimes I 
m asked for the AmigaCuide library but this ts 
m Tfly lib drawer . 

I have tried SnoopDoS but am unable to find 
fthich libraries or files are missing. By the way,, I 
deleted ImageFX by highlighting the icon and 
ddefag it from Workbench. 

Adrian Bemastone, West Sussex 


1 My first reaction would be that 

! a«~i I — . ImageFX may have added an 

extra path in the user startup, 
but as far as 1 know it only adds 
m assign arid a new drawer in the Env: 

I iiwhny. 

Generally, when you install software, 
using the normal Installer program we use 
Gr flu hie toverdisks, many programs add a few 
the user-startup file which is found 



in the S drawer. Usually this is limited to an 
assign statement but some programs such as 
MUI can add quite a lot 

This afl means that when you come to 
removing a program from your hard drive, if 
is not only a case of deleting the program's 
directory, but also removing its related lines 
from the user-startup - not the most friendly 
way of working, I know. This is a problem 
with the Amiga s assigns, and you can blame 
Commodore for not implementing some sort 
of assign demon that sits in the background 
watching assigned programs and updating 
them when programs are moved or deleted, 
and programmers for not using the PROGOIR 
assign more often, which could potentially do 
away with assigns, 

The best advice I can give is to tell you to 
carefully check your User- Startup, Shell- 
Startup and Startup Sequence for any men- 
tion of ImageFX and remove it from these 
files. 

As for the AmigaCuide library problem, 
there are a couple of version doing the 
rounds - one is for workbench 1.3 and is 
around 70k the other is the one you get with 
your Workbench disks and Is around 2 Ok.

fit your CD-ROM drive and an external 
hard drive. With all this extra hard 
drive space you may want to repartition 
your internal drive, giving yourself a 
larger Workbench partition. Depending 
on the size of your external SCSI drive, 
it may be a good idea to use the 
entire 120Mb as your Workbench 
partition. 

The easiest way to do this is once you 
have set up your Squirrel with the external 
hard drive* you wilt be able to drag over 
your entire Workbench partition to the 
external drive, Now use the Squirrel soft- 
ware to produce a boot floppy disk,, and 
then repartition the internal IDE drive. 
Doing this destroys ah the data on the 
drive. If you now boot using the Squirrel 
disk you will be able to drag your backup 
copy of Workbench back over to the new 
internal partition.

I am 5' 10" but am standing in a pool of s**t 6' 
0" deep. Before 1 go any further I have an 
A 5 00+ with 6Mb and a 120Mb CVP hard 
drive. I've bad this lot for about five years 
doing bits of DTP, invoices, work sheets, bill 
heads and stuff like that, and have never bothered 
about how and why things worked, just as long as they 
did. 

Last week 1 could not go out because of a chest 
infection, and being at a bit of a loose end l thought I 
would tidy up five years of rubbish that had accumulat- 
ed on both DHO and DH1, S went a bit silly deleting 
files I thought I did not need, but obviously some of 
those I deleted were definitely needed because when 1 
went to boot up from the hard drive all l got was what 
looks like a CLI screen with:

LOW 60s 


Nemac IV, your so-called system 
| friendly game, doesn't work on an 
Amiga fitted with an 0-60 chip. This 
also applies to Breathless. It is a wor- 
rying trend that makes both the com- 
panies that write these games look very 
unprofessional indeed. The 060 may only be 
used by a small number of people now, but 
as time progresses and the 060 boards for the 
A 1200 arrive, this number will surely increase. 

It is annoying to find that spending money 


upgrading your machines actually reduces the 
amount of software that it can run, and not the 
opposite. Publishers should maximise their 
markets and not alienate high-end users. ECS 
compatibility is sensible, after all the PC does 
this in its support of lower-end graphics such 
as VGA as well as SVGA, but more 


powerful AG A machines should not be ignored, 

Sam Smith, Worth Yorkshire 


What we found when trying the 
Blizzard 1260 board is that 



S — f\ games such as Nemac IV and 
Breathless ran, but incredibly 
slowly. This is to do with how the 060 
works, and is something the software pro- 


grammers could not have foreseen. To 
stream line the 060 execution path, not all 
the 680x0 instructions are built into the 


060. 

Unknown instructions cause a trap and 
during the trap the emulation has to find 
the right emulation routine and run this 
function. In a trap the processor is in the 
Supervisor mode and no other tasks can 
run. This effect is visible by the mouse jerk- 
ing around. The system will become mare 
unusable the more un implemented instruc- 
tions are used by a program. If you buy the 


you please tell me what to do to get back to normal, 
and I promise not to be stupid ever again. Also, please 
inform the rest of your readers to follow the great 
American saying: 'If it aint brake don't fix if

Oh dear, it looks like you managed to get 
yourself in a right mess here. I will start 
off by saying It is a good idea to go 
through your hard drive and remove 
old/unnecessary files, as long as you do 
not start trashing the system files. This is one reason 
for always having two partitions - one containing all 
your Workbench files and the other for your day-to- 
day work files. If you then delete stuff from your 
Work partition you will not damage any of those ail 
important system files, but you should learn from 


your mistakes. 

The first priority is to get your Workbench back up 
and running. Assuming, from what you have said, 
you have completely formatted your drives and there 
is nothing of use left to recover, you will need to 
boot your computer with your original workbench 
disk. Once Workbench has loaded you will see your 
now empty hard drive partitions. To get Workbench 
set up as quickly as possible, and assuming you 
do not have any hard drive install disk, do the 


following. 

t. Select your DHO partition and do a quick format on 
it to make sure it is completely empty 

2. Open up the Workbench disk's icon and select 
'show all files' from the Window menu 

3 . press the right Amiga and A keys, to select all the 
files in the Workbench window 

4. Holding the shift key down, drag all (he files over 
to your DHO partition 

5. Once ail the files are copied, reset your machine 
and Workbench should bootup from the once 
defunct drive. 

This will give you a working Workbench on your 
hard drive, but it does not do much to get your lost 
files back. If you cannot get any files back from the 
backup you have done then there is very little you 
can do in retrieving the old files. It may be possible 
to use something like DiskSalv. but if you have for- 
matted the drive and written back over it then there 
will be very little left intact for DiskSalv to recover. 
Your only option is to reinstall your software from 
scratch. 

A general rule to follow when deleting files is, 
do not touch your Workbench Files. These are things 
in your C, 5, Devs, Libs, l. Classes and Locale draw- 
ers. Just stick to removing old data files such as pic- 
tures and text, or programs you do not use any more.

Blizzard 1260 you get a program with it 
called CyberPatcher that attempts to 
change the instructions in these programs 
to one that will not cause a trap, therefore 
making the program run at full speed. One 
such program is MandlOOti which goes 
from running at around the same speed as 
an A 1 200 to running almost three times 
faster than an A4000. Unfortunately, this 
patch does not have any effect on Nemac 
IV and Breathless, 

You might like to know that Alien Breed 
- The Killing Fields also suffers from this 
problem, but the CyberPatcher program 
does work, therefore allowing you to run 
the game on full screen. 

The only real way around this current sit- 
uation is to recompile programs especially 
for the 060 chip - perhaps the companies 
could provide an upgrade to 060 owners. 
The compiler would then make sure that the 


code ran as fast as possible and remove! 
these speed problems. The problem wit 
this fool-proof plan is that 1 am not sure 
any such compiler exists. There is, howevr 
a new C++ compiler coming out ffffl 
Germany called StormC that can apparent 
compile optimised 060 code. 

I do sympathise with how you feel - whn 
the A1 200 first came out many programs fd 
straight oven This was them either doini 
naughty things to the chipset or it was did 
use of self modifying code that choked ■» 
the 02 O s cache. We at Amiga Compute 
have always complained when software di 
not support accelerated machines and he 
drives. If they do not do this, what is lb 
point in upgrading in the first place? The Of 
situation is an unfortunate, but unavqidabli 
one and you really are at the mercy of Ik 
software manufacturers producing Of 
versions of the original.

thought my current setup was all that 1 would want I have an Amiga 1 200 with BMb FastRAM 
M a Viper board with an FPU, I mainly use the Amiga to access the Internet and for playing 
carries. I originally got more RAM because 1 found out that the screen slowed down when a lot 
kvindows were opened, At times it go so bad that the mouse would sometimes hardly move, 
or the computer would freeze, end this was with 4Mbs sometimes still available 
I may have got it wrong but I think I might need a graphics card or something. [ wondered if 
could help me out by letting me know what I need, and the rough cost. 

Mark Williams, wtlliams@madmark,demonxoMk 


Unfortunately, you are pushing the Amiga's graphics to the limit To correctly redraw the 
Workbench screen every window needs to be refreshed, and with a lot of windows this 
starts to take a long time, A graphics card would help the situation as they use their own 
high speed blitters, but are only available on big bo* Amiga*. You do not say what pro- 
grains you are running or what screen mode you are using, as processor intensive programs 
Arj| obviously slow screen refresh. Also if you are using one of the new AG A monitor modes 
i best slow screen refresh except on 3 or 16 colour screens. 

The best way out of this situation is to run as many programs as you can on their own 
mens. Wrth the introduction of Workbench 2 this became a lot easier with the use of pub- 
lic screens, and just about all programs allow you to open a new screen or run them off an 
gifting screen. This will leave your Workbench as clear as possible, and therefore your 
windows will redraw as fast as possible. 


Qelp please 

l recently replaced the Commodore 
^ installed 200Mb Seagate IDE hard 
drive with a 1 OBGMb Seagate AT Fast 
IDE drive, and I used the standard 
3.0 HD Tools on the install floppy disk 
lo format and partition the new drive. The 
drive was recognised and I copied all my 
Workbench and Work files over to the new 
drive. 

Everything seemed to be normal as every- 
thing copied over correctly, but when t came 
Eo run programs such as Brilliance, 1 get the 
requester 'Unable to open your tool, 
Brilliance' or the name of the program I 
^™pted to run.. 

I have tried everything, checked the parti- 
tions, rebooted, and even reformatted and 
ft-pied the software back onto the drive to no 



avail. I then tried to copy the programs from 
their original floppies and voila, they all 
worked perfectly. This is obviously very 
tedious and makes backing up programs to 
my Sysquest pointless, I suspect there is a 
problem with the copy function from one 
drive to the other, even though I use the all' 
statement and it only affects tools, since 
Workbench and all other utility directories 
operate normally. 

1 need your help. The Amiga is an orphan 
in America and 3 cannot get an answer, 
The drive manual refers to PC installation 
only, and all technical support personnel 
are programmed for PC- related problems 
and seem to have no Amiga knowledge what 
so ever. 

William Trotter, Metairie La- USA 



Do you hove a problem? Do you 
sometimes find yourself poised 
over your Amiga with use in 
hood, spouting profanity at the 
stubborn re fusal of your software 
or hardware to behave properly? 

Weft, calm down and swap the 
axe for pen and paper , jot down 
your problems* along with a 
description of pour Amiga setup, 
and send it off to Amiga

J / I am afraid you are not going 
to like my reply too much as 
unfortunately, I have no idea 
what your problem could be. 

The frustrating part is that we 
have just installed a 1.6Gb IDE drive to 
our A4UQ0 and are now having the same 
problem. At first we thought it may be 
the Msxtransfer rate or the Mask that you 
can set through tiDfoolBox, but none of 
these seemed to have an effect 
I found that using the copy command 
from Shell die copy the programs over so 
they worked, but this is still a very unsat- 
isfactory situation to be an as we cannot 
use Workbench or Dopus to move pro- 
grams around. If anyone has the solution 
to this problem then please send it in. 


Qome installation 



4 vitjiJ program that is essential in Bettinq up your hard drive corrwctiy. 


\ am one of those individuals who still has an 
p J A600m with a 120Mb hard drive. The hard 
J drive has recently refused to work - the 
computer appears to think it no longer has one. 
The physical installation looks OK and when 
I try to use install v2.05 it seems to correctly prep the 
HD, but cannot format it Instead, the following message 
appears: 'Warning: Hard disk partition WB ,2.x: cannot be 
fend! This script formats partitions WB_2x and Work:. 
Make sure the drive is property connected and propped, 
and the partitions have the correct names/ 

Any ideas, except buy a new hard drive? 

flobert Mitchell, Ireland 

/ As long a* the hard drive is installed 
V— correctly, and you can hear it power up, 
/ -f I would think your best bet is to try and 
format the drive by hand as all the pro- 
grams you need are on the install disk. 

This involves using a program called HOToolbox. 
When you First run the program go to the 'Change 
Drive Type' and define a new drive. If you now read 


the drive configuration you should see all the differ- 
ent parts of the drive such as the manufacture, how 
many cylinders there are, heads, and other informa- 
tion you should not change. It will also work out 
how big the drive is from this information - this 
should be around the 120Mb mark. 

If you click on OK and return to the main menu, 
select partition drive. Here you can select how big 
each partition should be and how many you actually 


want, I would stick with the normal Workbench and 
Work partitions, and make the Workbench one 
about IS to 20Mb, You should also make sure 
Workbench is bootable and that Work is not. Now 
select OK and save the changes to the drive. When 
you quit the machine it will reset and you will need 
to boot up with the install disk again. You will then 
be able to, if that worked, install Workbench using 
the installer provided. 







O A 3 00th issue deserves something special, and 
this month's pubfic domain and shareware 
selection would certainly seem to fit the bill 
Honourable mention this month goes to the 
latest version of ClassAction r version 2.7 of which I seem 
to remember reviewing a while back. CbssAction creates 
an Ap pkon which can trigger all sorts of different pro- 
grams when files are dropped onto it. Version 3 not only 
implements the Commodity controls properly, but also 
oses the incredibly popular Magic User Interface. The 
Preferences program, which is used to define exactly 
what actions are performed on given teletypes, also 
includes a 'learn' mode which allows you to teach 
CfassAetton to recognise various file formats. ClassAction 
is an extremely handy utility to have knocking around 
your Workbench, and is available either from a PD deafer 
near you a or on Ami net

The Magic User Interface plan for world domination 
continues apace. Hot on the heels of the superb 
AmFTP and AmlRC packages (which will, of course, 
feature in the new Amiga Internet bundle) conies Vet 
Another Mailer, which also uses Mill and consequently 
abo boasts a stunningly attractive and easy-to-use 
interface. 

YAM also has an impressive range of features. The 
address book facility is well implemented-, and the con- 
figuration screen is fairly straightforward. There is a 
built-in UU encoder/decoder, meaning binary files can 
be sent and received. There's even an ARexx port, so 
other programs can control YAM - AMosaic for instance 
- and script files can be used to run mailing !i$t$. 

Interestingly YAM does not use external programs to 
send and receive mail, unlike Voodoo, the mailer Amiga 
Technologies chose far their bundle. This makes YAM 
incredibly easy to set up and use. Unfortunately, as far 
as I can see it may also mean YAM is of no use to 
Demon subscribers because with Demon, users receive 
their mail using a different system to the one YAM sup- 
ports, Still, if you use another service provider (or if 
there turns out to be a simple way around' this), then 
I'd strongly recommend getting hold of YAM.

Robert Ennals liked the taskbar feature so much he wrote a

Taskbar can open on any public Screen you care to specify, 
It makes a thin little bar appear across the bottom of the

instantly between them with a simple dick. It can launch tasks 
from the start bar and is easily customised to suit your pers^ 
nal needs. Taskbar automatically adapts itself to the font and 
screen mode of whatever public screen it is running on. 

This fourth incarnation, which boasts a number of significant 
improvements and bug fixes over the popular version 3, weighs 
in at a handy 32k, meaning rt's ever-so-slightly more memory 
efficient than Windows* tf you don't fancy having a Toolmanager

Frustrated by alt this talk of Aminet? Irritated that you don't have a 
modem with which to access this vast on-line software 
archive? Despair no longer, foF Your Choice PD now offer an interesting 
alternative. 

The idea is that you order their two-disk Aminet calatogue for a 
quid, sift through the index of hies available on-line using the attractive 
interface,, and write down the archives you'd like to get hold oh The 
next step is to contact Your Choke, who will download them for you at 
a cost of £130 per disk. Since everything on Aminet is archived in Lha 
format, a fair few archives can often be squeezed onto an BGOk floppy, 
so the service should offer very good value for money. Your Choke say 
they'll even update the catalogue disks free of charge. Isn't that nice?

Admittedly, there are far too many Breakout clones 
already in existence. Practically every programmer has 
probably attempted to create one at some point, and 
fortunately, as with so many simple ideas, the result is 
usually a highly entertaining game. Boris Ball is no 
exception. 

The graphics are smooth and effective and the sam- 
pled sound effects are nicely done. There are also ample 
bonuses to keep the gameplay interesting, ranging from 
ones changing the size of your bat to those giving you 
extra balls and suchlike. You can also have lasers moun- 
ted on your bat with which to demolish more blocks, 
confusing bonuses which reverse the direction the 
mouse must be moved in, gravity bonuses which suck 
your balls towards the edges of the screen, level clear- 
ance bonuses, ones which allow the ball to pass through 
all the blocks including the metal ones... the list is 
seemingly endless. 

There are five different speed settings and there’s 
even a handy built-in help mode which will remind you

what a certain bonus does when you are in the thick of 
the action. And if by any chance you should tire of the 
100 levels which are provided, you can create up to 100 
of your own using the built-in level designer.

is also a built-in Bartender offering a wide 
selection of cocktail recipes, and a wine list, 
although this only has a couple of entries

UITAR FRETMASTER

Guitar Fret master is a friendly and well designed tuition tool Its basic 
purpose Is to teach you to play scales, whether they be major, harmonic 
minor, melodic minor, modal, pentatonic or extended pentatonic. It also 
teaches arpeggios, and there are numerous drills r starting with basic 
ones and working up to the introduction of Dire Straits' Private 
Investigations. 

Selecting the scale you wish to attempt causes various coloured 
blobs to start appearing on a graphical representation of the frelboard, 
indicating precisely where each finger should be at any given moment 
You can also optionally have your Amiga produce the note you are sup- 
posed to be playing. However, I can see this being more of a hindrance 
than a help because the note is a rather tinny internal effect as opposed 
to a sound sample. 

Also included on the disk is a large AmigaGuide Guitar file. This 
includes plenty of fascinating background information from the history 
of various types of guitar right through to instructions for tuning up r fit- 
ting strings and generally caring for youf instrument The explanation of 
guitar tablature is sure to be helpful, and there is even a quick glossary 
of guitar terminology. This guide makes for a handy addition to a very 
useful disk.

Cross Sim City with Dune 2 and you'd end up 
with something similar to Breed 96, Your task 
is, essentially, to build and run a space colony, 
meeting the needs of the inhabitants and 
protecting it from alien invaders. 

Breed 96 is a brilliant strategy game which 
offers a wealth of gaming possibilities. Your 
first prio% will surely be to ensure there are 
adequate residential facilities and your inhabi- 
tants have sufficient food. Then you will have 
to establish law enforcement agencies, make 
sure the employment level doesn't soar, and 
ensure there is ample electrical power to 
keep things running nicely. On top of this, 
new technologies can be researched, trading 
alliances can be formed with neighbouring 
planets, and interstellar wars can be waged. 

The graphics are suitably dinky and 
detailed, and unsurprisingly are rather remi- 
niscent of those of Sim City. Some nice ani-

^nd dropped the narrator and translator 
ibraries, so removing thb Speech support. To 
be honest for most people there would very 
little lost but for visually impaired people 
speech would be of great help, 

SofTalk b a diop-in replacement for the old

king as a program can access them in an OS 
ega! way, all the old speech functions will 
w \ t correctly. The new SofTalk files add extra 
iisictionality to the old Amiga speech and, in 
lombmaticm with the PhonMaker and 
ransVaker program, allow you to create new 
speech translation files. This allows different 
saunding uoices to be produced and for 
Merent languages. 

Once SofTalk is installed off the floppy, any 
Drcgram that can make use of the old Amiga 
speech libraries wilt now produce speech via 
r h new SofTalk software. Multiple channel 
variable pitch, speech rate, slur, stammer, Eisp 
and a number of other control* are all avail- 
able and the major point of Sofia Ik is that 
Vo u can define your own text to speech 
translation via two extra programs,

quairty speech than the standard software, but 
the output is still the same sort of 'robotic' 
voice like the original Amiga speech. Your

When you pass a sentence to the transla-

When a number of codons are placed 
together you can recreate spoken words . 
Tm&Maker allows you to create and edit 
your own codon tables for use with

main reason for buying Sofia Ik would be if 
you needed speech on a Workbench 2.1 
machine, or you wanted the extended config- 
uration that is possible via the PhonMaker 
and TransMaker tools. 

It is obvious that the author has spent a lot 
of time writing the manuals as they do go 
into great detail about the theory and 
techniques involved in using computers to 
translate written text into spoken English. 

The two extra programs you have to pur- 
chase separately to the SofTalk software are 
not essential and are there so you can 
change how 1 the computer sounds. If you are 
thinking of trying to do this then you should 
not expect to get results straight away 
because both programs are complex, due to 
the subject they are dealing with, and can 
therefore cope with whatever request made. 

At the end of the day, you will know if you

The second part af generating speech on computers uses phonemes 
which are the Smallest recognisable elements of speech and are 
represented by codons. 

The phonemes ore strung together to produce the actual word This is 
very difficult to do os you are trying to model the complex mouth f tongue 
and larynx movements that produce speech, but using simple algorithms. 
The default phoneme set has 40 such basic sounds that represent 
transitions from one sound to another r and when used in the right order 
a word can be produced. 

PhonMaker allows you to create either extra , or completely new sets 
of phonemes, and is easily the most complicated program of the 
three. You do get three good manuals that outline aspects of phonetics 

and how to use each part of

1990 issue, it was supposed to be shown at CeBit 
that year, but as our report in the July issue states, 
they were nowhere to be seen. Nothing has been

Although the Opal Vision board had been out for 
quite a while and was reviewed in our 54th issue 


(where the addH3n modules were promised R5N), it 
wasn't until our 83rd issue that we printed a press 
release that stated that the fabled Roaster chip was 
going to be available at any moment and that peo- 
ple should Start holding their breath now, The 
Roaster chip was finally shown in a flawed form that 
year at one of the London Amiga shows, but it never 
appeared on sale, nor did the other modules like the

Our 82nd issue in January 95 had a company 
called Computer Answers announcing an Amiga

ell, we had a resounding success with 
our latest reader survey,, and I'm glad to 
see that most Amiga owners are actua- 
lly intelligent enough to work out whet* 
to send their entries, even though we purposefully 
didn't include an address to send them to, honest,. 

Actually, we always knew that you lot were 
brighter than the average Amiga user, and proba- 
bly a bit more mature, and the results we have col- 
lated bear this out. There are very lew of the old 
unexpanded Amiga fraternity content to spend 
their hard-earned merely on games and a joystick 




every year, and most of you seem to be quite 
to Lavish a fairly large amount of money 


on your machines over Ike course of the next year, 

MllltS 



So let's have those results then shall we"? It came 


CD-ROM drJlr*# - Idim* you /usl 
can't <f#t P* l#ie#n 


as no surprise that the machine thai was most pop- accounts for the fart that most of you who have a 


ill' 


Iff 

f/f 


ular was the Alloo, closely followed by the 
A20QQ/A1 5tiO,Jn fact, quite a lot of you seem eager 
to actually own more than one machine, which 
would obviously mean that a network port as stan- 
dard on an Amiga would prove to be a papular 
derision on ATs pari Even more pleasant to relate 
is the fad that over 91 per cent of our readers have 
a hard drive, with only a recalcitrant or poor 3.1 
per cent having to suffer the ignominies of the 
floppy drive y<Sj 

The fact that most of you are using At 200s is 
borne out by die processor stats showing the vast 
majority of people using an 020, Funnily enough, 
though, the figure for 020 usage is actually only 
just bigger than that for 0)0. meaning you all must 
like upgrading your 1200s, * fact which is -also 
shown by the statistic that says that nearly half of 
you own an FPU of one description or another. 

AHEAD 

The number of CD-ROM drives out them is at 
prisingly high, especially when you consider the 
dearth of really good CD-based software, but very 
nearly half of our readers actually have a CD drive. 
Maybe you all use them for playing musk mod of 
the time, like I do? SM 



monitor still only have a 1034-type monitor, 
although the low-end and high-end multiscan 
figures put together nearly match the 1034-type. 

Disappointingly, most of you still only have a 
dot-matrix printer, although the inkjet/buhblejet 
camp is in a close second place. Only about eight 
per cent of you don't have a printer at all. so let's 
keep those letters coming in please! 

That At 200 bias pops its head up again in the 
Workbench revision answers, with the overwhelm- 
ing majority of you using Workbench 3-3. WB 3.1 
accounts for the next highest figure and thankfully, 
I.) only now accounts for 5 per cent of our leader- 
ship. Even so, this 1$ far too many people. Cel your 
acts together and upgrade! 

As far as software is concerned, it seems that 
very lew of you actually use your Amiga* for CAD, 
but a huge proportion of you actually do spread- 
sheets on your machines. Games are as popular as 
ever with only a small amount of you denying you 
ever pfay them. The Amiga's supposed strengths 
are not being used to the full by our readers either, 
with a poor showing for video titling, editing, mul- 
timedia and animation, although an increasing 
number of you are using Ami gas for 3D graphics. 
Unsurprisingly enough, not one of you never uses a 


input we rely on. 

Overall, you 
seem to like the 

magazine though, with Only the Amiga Guide 
Uon getting a higher than average 'poor' 

Then again, It also gets a larger 'eij 
response than most Other sections so l'i 
what we can learn from this, Howevei 
putting our heads together to see if 
the section in some way. The most 
aspect for us is the fact that most of 
reviews and features - the core of oui 
are either good or excellent. 

One of the set of statistics wi 

fusing to start with was the fl 

you find the mazarine easily, until we realised 
should have worded the questionnaire slightly i 
ferently to take account of subscribers saying *Vt 

dud 



i.n revai 
ncouragi 
iu think * 
iagaiini 


at so many 


it's on my doormat every month'. What we afl 
meant to ask was whether those of you that do 
subscribe found it easily in your local newsag* 


, — 

but never mind. 






ms was an area surprisingly unde 
:ribed to, especially considering how buy the 
Aminet is, but it shows that Wfl are actually provid- 
ing you with a service when we put Aminet relea- 
ses on our coverdisks. In the end, only just over a 
thirdi of you have a modem, just over half that 
number hove a 14.4k modem, and just over half 
that number also have an Internet connection. 

Perhaps because oith^prepOAdera nee of A1200 
owners, there are very few (Hfucplnfiiive graph- 
ics cards, although quite., flaw stated that their 
favourite piece of Hardware would be one of these 


word processor, so it looks like Softwood and 




Dii’ita are right to keep up their arms race. 

Onto the magazine now and it seems that most 


of you think we are doing a good job overall, 
although a lot of you say you would tike more ESP 
and AGAS pages. To be honest, we wouldn't mind 
filling the entire magazine with problem* and let- 
ters, it would certainly make our job easier, but we 
cant do it. Why not? Because of the fact that you 
lot have to actually write the letters and problems 


lore we can put them in the magazine. We don't 


■Hbefore 
have a 


policy of making up letters to fit the number 


high resolution output devices. This probably of pages we have set aside for them, so it is your 


Subscript! ons 

Of those subscribers we have, the majority of 
have only subscribed for between one and b 
years, which can only be put down to our 
American and Canadian readers from the demise 
Amiga World, but we do have a hardcore of r 
who have been with us for over five years. 

The Last section of our survey dealt with the 
biological questions of what sex you were and b 
old. I think if s a shame that we have so few f 
p coders, or at least ones who were willing to 
their questionnaires, with only 2.6 per cert 
respondents wearing frocks (to our knowledge) I 
readers tend to be more mature than the de 
graphics would appear to show for other mi 
with a large number of respondents putting 
in as their occupation, but the largest 
are aged between h and SO. 

We've picked a winner from the huge set 
of entries we had. He's a sixth year studen 
Tilehurst near Reading and he has three Am 
an A5D0 an A5Q0+ and an A2000 - and likes 
30 graphics and a lot more. He's one of our 50 
cent that don't have a CD-ROM drive yet a 
doesn't have a modem. 50 ff Stefan t Young 
like to get in contact with us, we'll see what we 
do to give him a copy of his most wanted 
• Cinema4D. 

So, thanks very much for providing us 
information we need to continue to mal 
Computing the best magazine on the shelf an 
can look forward to seeing changes based an 
desires in the near future.

If you are baud stupid, Neil Mohr 
looks at the cream of the modem crop 
to get you out of your on-line blues 

mrnd storage hungry Web pages whose sises 
can easily reach the JOOs of kilobytes mrk 
Luckily technology never rests, and fast year 
saw a plethora of 2S,SE}0bps modems swamp 
the market These 'beasts' can handle around 
3k a second on a good line and can make 
light work of downloading information on the 


Internet and bulletin boards, Recently, their 
prices have dropped dramatically so making 
fast access available to everyone. With most 
modems offering group I or 3 fait support 
along with some with fast voice/data switch- 
ing there ts plenty of choice for everyone out 
there. 


\ s a student I was privileged 
■ \ enough to have access to free 
-1 highspeed access to the Internet, 
i ii all thanks to the University il went 
to and paid for by the good honest tax payer 
However, for most other people who want to 
get connected from home, money can start 
to play a key role in how long and how much 
you can participate. Ifs all fine and dandy for 
computer journalists and the big cheeses at 
large computer corporations to sing the 
Internet's praises if no one else can afford to 
get on fine. 

A large part of your total expense is going 
to be your phone bill Apart from taking spe^ 
dal offers with BT r Mercury or a local cable 
network company, possibly the most practical 
way of cutting bills is to buy the fastest 
modem. Ten or 15 years ago a 2400bps 
modem would have been considered an 
absolute luxury, but at these speeds a page 
of text is torture to watch download, never

r/te Speedcom modem is one of the aider modem models 
in thfs roundup but speed wise ft has aged very wetl. The 
28, S model comes with support for 
VA2 and V.42bis error correction 
and data compression, as well as 
having the ability to send class ! 
or 2 faxes - as long os you have 
(be correct fox software. 

The casing seems a iittle plas- 
My but is styled quite niceiy and 
the whole thing is very small, not 
mueft bigger than your hand, it 
has o iine out connector to allow 
mi to hove a pass through phone, 
and the single power button on the 

lop is well placed. 

Due to it being a slightly older modem the Speedcom is 
(uftently available af a lower price than most of the other 



models , and for people on a very tight budget the 1 4,4 
veafon represents possibly the cheapest modem available. 

The manual that accompanies 
the modem is large and helpful, 
and for the beginner it is very use-

US Robotics have always been renowned for thdr quality modems and this latest one Is no excep- 
tion;. The SportsteT is a fairly compact affair, only marginally bigger than the Speedcom modem. The 
casing is made of a tough dark grey plastic add the whole unit has a very solid feel to it, and com- 
pared to US Robotics' earlier efforts the casing is styled quite well, with the usual bank of status UEDs 
Inching the front of the modem. There s even a stand to allow you to use the modem uprrght 
and a usefully positioned power switch and vol- 
ume control are placed on the side of the modem 
lor easy access. 

As lor functionality, the Sportster has pretty 
much everything you would need. With V.45 and 
V42bt5 error correction and data compression, as 
weB as having the ability to send class l or 2 (axes 
to use the Sportster proves itself to be one of the 
fastest modems around.

The Sportster also has voice mail support which 
would allow you to use the built-in microphone 
andi speaker to send and receive spoken mails 
using your Amiga. Unfortunately, no software exists 
to allow you to take advantage of the voice mail 
Standard which is a shame. 

This is a great modem. It is very compact and 
supports all of the current standards. The manual 
seems a little brief, concentrating mainly on inter- 
nal Rtfing to a PC, but as there is usually very little 
involved in setting up an external modem it is not 
really a problem. Probably the best BABT approved 
modem you can buy at this price.

Qupra Express 288 



The SupraExpress is another tiny modem and comes in a fairly thin 
plastic cose that does rwf seem very rugged and has only the barest of 
sfoft /5 displays on the front However, it is meant to be a budget version 

of its big brother the SupraFax modem. 

A couple of real plusses for the SupraExpress are the five-year 
guarantee that It comes with and the fact that Supra actually 
provide direct support for the Amiga . Admittedly, it is only an American 

'+*'"*"* mUkm 






also a specific Amiga 
e-mail address. How- 
ever, if you are having 
problems with your 
modem this might oof 
be too helpful! 

I am not too keen on 
the built-in modem 
coble that comes with 
the SupraExpress. it is 
long enough hut if you 
need to replace it you 
are either going to have 
to send the modem 
away or face the perils 
of replacing it yourself 
which would mean 
invalidating the five- 
year guarantee you get 
with Supra modems.

Another new modem from Wizard, the Titan is a 
very well priced,, high-speed BABT approved 
modem. Being BABT approved is important 
point because onfy BABT modems can be used 
on BT lines, and only BABT approved modems 
can be guaranteed to work problem free. 

The casing of the Titan might not be the most 
attractive, but the metal casing gives the modem 
a very solid feel so it could probably handle a 
good bashing around - more so than many ol 
the plastic cased ones. 

As with all ihe other modems in the roundup, 
the Titan has a small amount of non-volatile 
memory in it. This allows you to store modem 
configurations and up to four phone numbers in 
the modem's memory r and will remain stored in 
the modem even when you power do wn. 

Being a V.34 modem, the Titan supports all 
the usual baud rates up to 28,800 bps, and the 
usual V.42 and V.42bis types of error checking 
and data compression, as you would expect 

If you want the cheapest BABT approved 
modem the 14,4 version is excellent value for 
money P and as with alt modems ffoni "Wizard 
you get Ncomm thrown in - which is perfect for 
connecting to bulletin boards.

A newer modem to the market the X-Unk comes in a fairly plain box. The 
mode/ we had was c ream coloured,, and the colour compliments ihe 
Amiga casing , ; but a plain black one is also available. 

The case has a couple of feet at the bottom that can be pulled out to 
allow the modem to be placed upright On most modems the front is 
adorned with plain LEDs with a couple of initials to show you what it is 
meant to represent, but as a change the X-Unk modem uses illuminated 
icons to indicate what is going on. 

All the usual compression and data correction modes ore supported, 
along with class l and 2 fax transmission and reception , Wizard can also 
supply the CP Fax software as part of the modem bundle for an extra £40. 
If you need to send or receive foxes then this is an essential purchase. 

The X-Link modem comes with a very good manual that covers subjects 
from connecting up your modem to what every Hayes command is used 
hr and bow to use them to configure the modem. All the leads you need 
are included with the modem t and Wizard also throws in a bootable 
comms disk with Ncomm included. Therefore, you can start using your 
modem as quickly as possible. This is another BABT approved modem so 
you cun use it on BT lines without fear of repercussions.

US Robotics Courier is usually taken to be ffre 
best modem on the market and t his is reflec- 
ted in its price tag, being the most expen-

that strikes you about the Courier is 
how large it is T being about as thick 
as many of the other modems 
but around twice the length 
and a good bit heavier tOO- 
As you would expect 
the Courier does the 
business speed 
wise producing 
the best in 
transmission 
rateSr which 
is only to be 
expected as 
US Robotics claim 
the Courier is the only V every- 
thing" modem available. By oniy using the 
Rockwell protocols instead of using the Rockwell chipset, 
this allows the courier to support both the V.fast and the V.52turbo 
protocols alongside all the standard modem rates.

switch. This little gadget lets you quickly s' 
the modem between voice mode, allowing 
to speak to the person on the other end on 
data mode, where the two modems can 
transmit data between themselves. To use th % 
however, both modems need to hove this 
feature. 

The Courier also supports adaptive speed 
levelling that allows it to select the best pcssi 
ble speed for transmitting and receiving do 
independently of the other modem, 
Consequently r if the transmission rate dm 
you can still receive at full speed. 

Overall, the Courier is the lap-af-the-rang t 
modem and is the First choice for just about oS 
the internet providers r so features like adapts 
speed levelling can be used when online ro the 
Internet. The price of the Courier may seetfi 
high, but for the really serious comms user iht 
modem will more than pay for itself in the low 
run.

what constitutes a recording studio? Well 
dirt's a question, and one that doesn't have an easy ^^B 

answer. If you're into* techno musk then your system may be an ft 

Amiga with, say, the Bars and Pipes sequencer a MIDI interface, a LV* 

couple- of multi-timbrai synths, a simple miser, and a cassette deck for ft 

gartering - perhaps £1,000 all in. At the other end of the scale, recording ™ 

pop musk with instruments and vocals would require an 8- or 16-track 
ftcuder, a sophisticated mixing console, various synth modules, outboard equip- 
'Ht like re verbs, delays, gates and compressors, a selection of microphones, a separate 
booth for vocals and drums - and a second mortgage to put that little lot together!: Yep, you 
could be talking about getting little change out of £40,000. 

This feature will help you understand ail the components of a recording studio so that 
■ju can decide what you need. While it won't present a procession of specific product

OUHDUP 


OUNDS LIKE MIDI 




Finding a synth you're happy with is not an 
eesytask. With so many available, confusing- 
ty-named sound generation systems and 
misleading polyphony figures are just the tip 
of the iceberg. So lets look at what is 
required of a good all-purpose synth. 

The First thing is to try it at the shop to 
see if you like the sounds. If you don't then 
there's no point going any further. The next 
thing to look at is how many sound presets 
are available and how many user-pro- 
grammed sounds can be stored internally. 
After a white you're bound to get bored with 
the facto ry sounds, so you want to be able 
to create and store your own. 

Most modem synths are capable of play- 
ing in a multi-timbral mode. 

This means that by using a 
sequencer, the synth 
can play a bass 
so u n d on one 
MIDI channel a 
piano on a second, 
and strings on a third 
- all at the same time. 

This is very useful but qurc 
kfy uses up all of the synth's 
sound generators. A bass part will 
probably require just one note at a 
time, but add a piano, some strings and 
brass and you are probably asking the synth 
to play ten or more notes simultaneously, 
Polyphony is the measure of the number of 
notes or voices the synth is capable of play' 
ing at any one time. The issue gets more 
confusing because in many cases the synth 
uses two or more voices to generate a sirr- 
gle note to make the sounds thicker and 
richer. Just knowing that a synth has 24- 
voice polyphony is not enough - you want 
to look at how many voices are used to 
generate a typical sound. 

Many synth models are available as key- 
board-less sound modules and it's sensible 
to buy one with a good keyboard and then 
add sound modules as required, The synth 
with the keyboard will be your master key- 
board, used to play ail the sound modules, 
sampler and other MIDI devices in your stu- 
dio, so look lor a keyboard that feels right 
There are several features to look for. First, 
velocity sensitivity is a must A keyboard that 
doesn't respond to how herd you play will 
create monotonous and lifeless music. 
Aftertouch is less important, but can be just 
as useful, tt works by allowing you to modify 
the sound by pressing the keyboard harder 
after your initial touch. Typically, aftertouch 
is used to add vibrato, filter sweeps, or other 
effects to the 
sound

look for the modulation and pitch bend

changes, for example.

additional outputs so

sound, for instance, from 
the rest. This is useful if you 
want to use different EQ and 
effects on the bass part. Finally, if 
you intend to buy or swap MIDI files, GM 
(General MIDI) compatibility is useful 
because it allows song files created on one 
system to be played on another with the 
minimum of hassle. 

A sampler is a usefui addition to any MIDI 
set-up. Although not essential, and generally 
more expensive than the average synth, a 
sampler can reach the parts other synihs 
can't? With a few drum and percussion sam- 
ples,. your sampler becomes a dedicated 
drum machine. You can also use it to pinch 
short sections from records and loop them 
(well dodgy!), or to emulate the sounds of 
orchestral or oriental instruments. The main 
factors, apart from sound quality and 
polyphony, are the amount of RAM and hard 
disk space, and how upgradable they are. A 
drum machine rs also handy - check out 

the Alesis SR-! 5 * 
but less important if 
you have a decent- 
sounding drum kit 
on your synth or 
sampler. 


You need to hear your musk as dearly ns 
possible. This means you'll need o good 
power amplifier ; a set of speakers, and a pah 
of headphones l if you're on a tight budges 
you could use a Hi-Fi stereo system, but 
there's no substitute for decent monitoring

friend's, 

A good amp and speakers designed far 
studio use has a fiat frequency response and 
a dear, well-defined sound, When shopping 
for a power amp, get the most powerful one 
you con afford, mifr 1 per channel os u 
working minimum. There's a wide range of 
speakers on the market Speakers con be ver} 
subjective and can sound very different 
depending on the room and amplifier used 
In principle, look for the most efficient spea- 
ker: efficiency is measured in decibels pot 
watt (dB/w) and the higher tfre figure the bet- 
tec Three-way speakers that use three sepa- 
rate drivers are generally better than tmwoy 
ones. 

When recording vocals or acoustic instru- 
ments your best bet is to use headphones. S 
you try to use the speakers you will have fe 
battle with feedback and other problems. 
Walkman-type headphones will not do as 
they lend to leak sound that yuur microphone

are specifically designed lor recording wort 
and have a minimal amount of sound

The I list stage in the recording process is 
the mix. All the channels are balances 
and EQed, Effects are added and the final 
stereo output is fed into a stereo master- 
ing device. In the old days, people used to 
use a 1/4" or 1/2" reel-to-reel, but the 
standard today is the OAT machine. 
Originally designed as a consumer prod- 
uct, it found a home in the recording $tu 
dio due to its superb audio quality. Sound! 
is recorded as digital information onto a 
small cassette, similar to the ones used in 
camcorders. Tape length varies from 60 hi 
120 minutes. The more expensive models 
(£1,200 and more) offer extra features 
and better sound quality, but even the 
cheapest models {about £600) sound al 
least as good as a domestic CO player. 

Art alternative to a OAT would be a 
high-quality cassette deck - and you wl 
probably want one anyway so you can 
make copies of your final mix to play it 
others. The cassette is not an ideal forma: 
as audio quality is relatively poor and 
tape can degrade very quickly.

TAPE OR NOT TO TAPE 


faur most expensive purchase is likely to be the centre 
of your studio, a multi-track recorder. There are three 
□ptions here; analogue tape; digital tape; or direct-to- 
disk. Analogue multi -tracking is a system that dates 
hack la the 1950s. The tape width is divided into a 
number of equal bands, each of which can hold a 
recording. So r for instance, a Fostex R8 splits l/4 ,f tape 
into eight 'strips'. You'd be amazed what can be 
achieved with eight tracks - the early Beatles albums 
only used Four tracks, and even Sergeant Pepper was 
recorded on just eight tracks,

Firstly, the nature of magnetic tape 
means a degree of hiss is created on 
every recording. Secondly, mix- 
ing, say, three backing vocal 
tracks together onto a single 
track, commonfy called 
1 bouncing 1 , results in a poorer 
quality recording than the origi- 
nals. Also, such a system will prob- 
ably have to be obtained second-hand. 

Digital multi-tracking seems to be the direction in 
which the medium budget market is moving. Starting 
with the eight-track Alesis AD AT system and the looka- 
Eike Fostex RDB, a studio can now have eight tracks of 
sparkling digital recording on a standard 5-VR5 car- 
tridge. You can even use more than one unit to get 
multiples of eight tracks and have them run- 
ning in time with each other by the addition 
of a small external piece of hardware. 
Disadvantages! Very few, aside from the 
price tag - around £5,000 against an equiva- 
lent analogue system costing around a quarter 
of this second-hand. Play-back quality is stun- 
ning, although you have to be careful not to 
have too many noisy items in your system - 
such a$ cheap synths and effects units. 

The third possibility is dkecMo-disk, This may 
be based around a computer system, or can be a 
Stand-alone product Such as the Fostex DMT-S,

and a fulty-furictional eight track mixer. This would cut 
down on the cost of a decent spec mixing console, 
Other companies are also getting involved with $uth 
products such as the similar spec VS-BBO from Roland. 

Disadvantages? In a word: backing up. The DMT-B 
has no expansion port for a second hard disk so you 
have to transfer your song data to a DAT recorder once 
the internal hard disk is full. This means relying on a 
tape- based medium for long-term storage. The MS-BBQ 
has a SCSI socket to which you could attach a CD-R 
recorder like Yamaha's CD 102 and so burn the data to 
a CD - a more reliable option for those with more 
serious aspirations.

samplers in this set-up must be connec-

Apart from the number of chan-

The better mixers feature 
a set of insert paints that

jack sockets similar to an old telephone 
exchange. All the audio input s and outputs in

Unless you're going to work solely with MIDI, you*re going to 
need a microphone or fivo. There ore two main types: dynamic

Listen to youi favourite current pop song. 
Does the kick drum sound ultra-even? Are 
there any odd extraneous sounds anywhere 
on the record? Does the vocal sound 
extremely breathy and present? The answer 
to all three of these is likely to be ""yes" - 
welcome to the age of dynamic control! 

What are dynamics? In a nutshell, it's the 
range of sound, from the quietest whisper 
la the loudest, percussive instruments. 
Analogue tape, whether it r s a mufti -track 
recorder or a cassette player, cannot cope 
with the kind of dynamic range that music 
produces, So the range has to he reduced. 
This is true even with most digital recorders 
- whiie a little distention on an analogue 
machine may pass unnoticed, any degree 
of digital distortion will ring out like a 
chainsaw. 


Compressing 

Top of the list is a compressor. As the name 
suggests, this reduces (or compresses) the 
dynamic range and tends to be used on 
individual instruments rather than across an 
entire final mix. Typical instruments that 
benefit from the heavy use of one of these 
are bass drum, bass guitar or synth, and

lead vocals, especially with an inexperienced 
singer. Compression to a fesser degree can 
also be used cm most real instruments, sim- 
pfy to keep the recording level within rea- 
sonable limits. Avoid compressing MIDI 
synths - most realistic sounds have already 
been compressed by the digitising process. 

Most compressors allow you to use high 
compression ratios, upwards of 20:1, This 
prevents the output level from exceeding a 
set limit; hence the name used for this 
process - limiting. If you’re intending to 
record vocals and instruments, get yourself 
a two-channel unit that provides both 
compression and limiting. 


Prevention 


Noise exhibits itself in various different 
ways. Hard disk whine, radiator burbling, 
overhead aircraft, cars outside - all are likely 
to appear on your vocal recordings unless 
you take measures to stop them. Here you 
have two choices; buy a compressor with 
gates on the input, or buy a dedicated noise 
gate. The first of these is very useful if you 
have to record in an environment with extra- 
neous noise, such as a lunge or other room 
without sound-proofing. A noise gate usually 
offers a number of gates (between two and 
eight) that Can he set to silence all noise 
beneath a certain level. That way you can 

get rid of, say, 


N CONTROI 


If you al ready play a non-keyboar 
instrument like an electric guild 
there are various alternative MIDI a > r

tracking, so it s best to try before v 
buy.

r o produce dry sounds that lack the not- 
m i echo and resonance of o room or a can- 
cerf hall. A decent effects unit will let you 
pirn your instruments in a wide range of 
imaments, from a small roam to a long 
tmd. This type of effect is called reverb In 
fa ik?/ world \ reverb is the result of a large 
number of echoes that are reflected from the 
, ;Jfs and furniture and bounce back and 
around the room , The result is a wash of 
mnd where the individual echoes merge 
Mia each other. A digital reverb effects unit 
muhtes this by sampling the incoming 
mnd and playing it bock in a complex 
!er a/ echoes. Naturally, the more you 
spend on your reverb unit the more natural 
miding and flexible it will be, 

Tfterc ore many devices on the market that 
an do much more than just add reverb to 
aw mix, such os the Afesis Midiverb 4. They 
am easily generate effects such as repeating 
ette,. ping-pong delays, pitch shifting, and 
q mkty of doubling and flanging effects, Alf 
t^ese can be used creatively to enhance the 
sounds you record. Automatic double-tracking

trsed to great effect on backing vocals to 
irate them sound bigger*. Same units go a 
’it-p further and can generate several effects 
tithe same time. Such multi ^ effects units' 
such as the Alesis Quadraverb, tend to cost 
more fiyf are very useful. Having one dedica- 
ted reverb unit and 





one all-purpose 
mufti-effects device is probably 
the best compromise. 

The nature of these effects require them 
to be mixed in with the sound, you would 
normally want to hear a mix of the dry 
sound and the reverb effect, Unlike com- 
pressors and noise gates which are norma- 
lly connected via insert points, effects like 
reverb and echo are added by using the 
effects sends and returns on your mixing 
desk . Typically, a unit will have a pair of 
stereo inputs and outputs , but in most cases 
the left and right inputs are merged internal- 
ly and you may as well use just the left one. 
The output f however ; is true stereo On the 
majority of units and the stereo effect is cru- 
cial to the realism of the reverb , This output 
is usually routed into a pair of effects returns 
on your desk which should be panned hard 
left and right If your desk doesn't have spe- 
cific effects returns you will need to sacrifice 
two channels for this purpose. 

An effects send works by feeding some of 
the sound into the effects unit which then 
produces the reverb or delay and sends it 
back via its Outputs. By adjusting the 
amount of effects sends on the Individual 
channels on your desk you con determine 
how much of the sound is fed into the 
effects unit and \ therefore, how much effect 
will be added to it This allows you to 
have a lot of reverb an, say, the snare 
drum, while keeping the bass drum sound 
relatively dry.

IVE ME 
A LEAD 

if you own a mufti-track, some synths, a 
computer with sequencing software, an 
effects unit or two, a mixer, amplifier, and 
the various other items that go to make 
up a studio, you'll probably have 20 or so 
plugs to fit into, perhaps a couple of 
mains sockets. Do you buy a few four-way 
mains blocks, some two and three way 
mains adaptors and cobble the whole lot 
together? No! Here's the right way to 
handle your cabling. 

If possible, consider running a separate 
power supply from the fuse box to your 
studio and terminate it with an isolating 
switch. The advantage? A lack of mains- 
borne noises such as dicks from refrigera- 
tors and other pieces of equipment turn- 
ing on and off. The isolating switch allows 
you to cut all electricity in case of an 
emergency, If this is impossible, consider 
building some small boards with mams 
blocks attached to them, each with a 
switch to allow you to disconnect that 
board from the mains. 

o — — 

Use good quality mains plugs that have a 
plastic sleeve on the positive and neutral 
pins r and also use decent quality mains 
blocks and adaptors (if you have to). 
While it may be difficult to overload the 
fuse in a block, it is easy for a plug or 
adaptor to pull half out - use a few extra 
blocks and avoid adaptors completely, 
And remember to label each plug with the 
name of the piece of equipment it is 
attached to! 

The total current being drawn by your 
equipment will be nowhere near the stan- 
dard 13 amps that is allowed for by a plug 
fuse. Work out the total current draw of 
your system by adding up the power fig- 
ures for your gear {check the rear panels 
for each wattage) and divide by 24Q. Work 
out the current draw for each piece of 
equipment, get hold of a selection of 
low -value fuses (1, 2 and 3 amps), and 
substitute these for the standard t3 amp 
type. 

This will ensure that should a fault 
occur with a piece of equipment drawing, 
say, a quarter of an amp, the fuse in its 
plug will blow first. All mains blocks 
should have 13 amp fuses so that you 
don't need to worry about the total cur- 
rent draw for all the equipment connected 
to this block. 

When you turn on some pieces of 
equipment, the initial surge may draw 
more current than under normal running 
conditions. If you leave all your equipment 
on and then turn on at the watt, the 
instantaneous current draw could exceed 
13 amps and blow fuses. Other damage is 
also possible when current surges occur. 
For safety sake, many people prefer to 
turn each individual piece of equipment 
on and off.

ERFECT TIMING 

How do you keep your sequencer in time with your multi-truck? By using a SMPTE to MU

sequencer con understand - that's the MIDI Time Code bit So when you fast-forward p 
recorder to a point part-way through a song f your sequencer will instantly move to the cam- 
location. 

While you lose a truck on an analogue recorder, most digital multi-tracks have optrn, 
boxes that can output the MiBl Time Code without needing any special code on tape. 


ARTH TO EARTH 


A common problem is that of a low frequency hum coming 
from the loudspeakers - an earth loop. This is usually due to 
trouble with earthing in one or more pieces of equipment A 
few tips; 

Don ‘r remove the earth lead inside a mains plug I Break 
the hop by ensuring the audio system is earthed and by hav- 
ing a 270 ohm resistor wired in line with the screen in the 
offending hem's jack plug. 

Equipment con cause on earth hop even when turned off 
os moins and audio connections are still being made . If there 
are problems with racked equipment remove the morns plug 
far each item and start racking them again one at a time. 

A com moo situation is where mains adaptors are built into

he topics of] the agent fa this 
month are the techniques used to 
create Easy Base At f s menus grid 
gadgets. Gadtods, the library that 
was introduced with Ref ease 2 specifically to 
simplify the creation of Intuition-based user 
interfaces, plays a big part in these discus- 
sions and since the menu- related issues are 
easiest to understand this is where I'll start. 
Gadtocl menu definitions are based on sets 
of data blocks called NewMenu structures 
fiat,, for the C coder, can be described like

It 


lie rtmjype field is used to specify one of 
three entry types: a menu title, a menu item, 
or a dummy ‘end of menu' value. Standard 
definitions, such as NM_ TITLE which indi- 
cates that an entry refers to a menu tide, are 
dtiilable in the Amiga headers, The only 
other fields you need to know about are the 
nm_Label and nm_GommKey fields which 
are pointer* to test strings containing a name 
and a keyboard shortcut for the item in 
question. All we need da to build a menu 
these days, then, is set up an array of 
tlewMenu structures to represent the various 
menu titles and menu items uve want, and 
■iff Cadtools do the rest. Take a look at listing 
l - the three arrays shown are all that are 
leeded to define the complete EasyBaseAC 
mu system! 

OF course, apart from the menu defini- 
tions we also need to get the menus dis^ 
played. A number of steps have to be per- 
formed here and I'll deal with them in the 
order they need to be carried out Firstly, in 



is month 


at how the Esk syl 
and gadgets were created 

order for Gadtools to be able to work its 
magic; information needs to be provided 
with details of the screen on which display 
items are going to appear This is achieved 
by making a cal! to the Gadtonl 
GetVisuallnfoO function and on exit a corre- 
sponding Free Visual InfoQ function also has 


menus

ADTOOL GADGETS 


As well o$ simplifying menu creation, Godtools also 
provides a set of routines for managing a whole 
range of gadget types - button gadgets, used for 
Gtt/CANGEL type operations, string and integer gad- 
gets for text and number entry r checkboxes for on/off 
items ond so on. The gadget type is identified by 
specifying one of the ^defined types specified in the 
lihraries/gadtooIsM file. As with the Gadlool menu 
balitieSf Godtools gadgets are programmed at a s ig* 
ntficantiy higher level than the Intuition library is able 
(o provide. The function used to create a gadget is 
c ailed CreoteGadgetQ and it uses a data block known 
us NewGadget structure:

induding sets of text-based gadgets for displaying the 
individual fields associated with database records. 
The window Jx module., the vkw-Qniy window code 
provided last month, used TEXT_KfND gadgets which 
ore essentially view-only string gadgets. The module 
for the record creation and editing window (provided 
on the coverdisk this month) uses STRING KIND gad- 
gets because these allow a user to type text into 
them. A couple of Boolean on/off type BUTTON KIND 
gadgets are also used to provide the Store/Clear 
boxes that appear in EaSfBaseACs editor window. 

The basic code for creating a single gadget 
involves throwing suitable values far position, size 
etc f into the NewGadget structure ond making a call 
to the CreoteGadgetQ function. All gadgets created 1 
using CreoteGadgetQ need to be freed by using the 
FreeGadgetsQ function but, because Gadtoofs 


gadgets ore automatically linked together, only one 
call to this function i$ necessary no matter how many 
gadgets eventually get created!

routine must be performed. What this rou- 
tine does is perform all the underlying 
Intuition- related menu structure setting up 
work. This call, too, must be coupled with a 
deallocating FreeMenusQ function before a 
program terminates. 

The menu structures created by the 
abovementioned library calls still contain no 
size or position information. With Gadioots 
this information has to be provided in & sep-

Finally, the menu can be installed in the cho-

function SetMenuStripQ. This function, inci- 
dentally, must be coupled with a 
CkarMenuStripO call prior to the window 
dosing. 

The unfortunate thing about what would 
otherwise be a fairly 'bearable* scenario is that 
we've got a whole load of library routines to

good a month as any since there is very little that needs to

LOOPY 


If you have gadgets whose MewGadget 
definitions have significantly different 
attributes, then it is perfectly acceptable 
to create a gadget set by building j 
number of separate MewGadget strut- 1 
lures. Often, however, you may want to 
set up a series of related gadgets whose 
gadget structures differ only in, say, their 
horizontal or vertical position co-ordi- 
nates, or their text fields. In these types 
of cases it is unnecessary to set up indi- 
vidual MewGadget structures. Instead, a 
loop can be used which reads, or calcu- 
lates, any fields that need to be set up, 
thereby allowing a single NewGadge* 
Structure to be used for creating a whole 
series of gadgets. 

C — " — ~ 

This loop approach is important with 
EasyBaseAC for two reasons, Firstly, 
when a user resizes the editing window 
I do a calculation to see how many text 
or string gadgets could be displayed, 
store this value as the database field 
count, and then quickly dose and 
reopen the window to provide the new 
display. When a new database is loaded 
the field count is again used in the gad- 
get creation loop, so the number of gad- 
gets that first appear is the same as 
those used when that particular 
database file was last saved. 

There are a few other things about 
Gadtool gadget creation that need to be : 
mentioned. Firstly, GadtooEs needs to 
store a number of private data items 
relating to the gadgets placed in a 
window, and it stores this 'context 1 infor- 
mation in a dummy gadget which actu- 
ally forms the start of a Gadtools gadget 
list. 

Because of this, a call to a 
CreateContext{) function needs to be 
made before any real Gadtool gadgets 
are created. Once the window is open ;ir 
is also necessary to make a call to a 
GT_RdreshWindow() function which 
completes the rendering of the gadgets 
You'll be able to see how I do this from 
the gadget creation routines that are 
present in the EasyBaseAC window 
modules.

Ql S KSALV 


Dave Hay me (Shareware) 

The first thing that any Amiga owner should 
purchase is a hard drive - using Workbench 
from floppy disk soon becomes very irritat- 
ing. However, the only problem with a hard 
drive is when it goes wrong. And when 
they go wrong you'll curse yourself for 
not doing more to protect your precious 
data. 

Fortunately, much of the best application 
software is Shareware and often appears 
on the Amiga Computing coverdisks. One 
such program is DiskSalv - an excellent 
program that not only repairs hard 
drive faults but can also recover previously 
deleted files, 

DiskSalv comes with an extremely user- 
friendly interface that will even allow you 
to repair and salvage files from floppy 
disks. You can be sure that your hard drive 
will choke at some time, so make DiskSalv 
your top priority - be prepared. 



1 1 ^ in #?rc etlerrt program 

lor rejj.iFrjjig damaged hard drives 
and im-04f#frng previously deleted 
tries, It's shareware too! 



BACKUP 


Denis Gounelle & Reza Elghaii 
(Shareware) 


Protecting your hard drive is one thing but it 
is also sound advice to back it up to floppy 
dbks once every six months. There are many 
good programs that will do this for you but 
certainly the best, and rt's shareware, is 
ABatkup. 

ABackup allows you to store any part of 
your hard drive onto a set of floppy disks 
which you can, if you wish, restore back to 
your hard drive at a later date - also via 
ABackup. 

Just like DiskSalv, it comes complete with 
a very user-friendly interface which is self- 
explanatory, even fen the beginner. ABackup 
will calculate how many disks you will need 
for your backup and even compress the files, 
therefore reduce she amount of disks 
required. Just like DiskSalv, ABackup is 
essential for hard drive users and if data gets 
damaged you will also have a recent backup 
to restore. 



n Keeping a regutor floppy hack up of ymtr 
hard drive is essential and ABackup does it 
ail tor you with earn* and speed

Unless you use your Amiga solely for games, which would 
be a waste, all Amiga owner* eventually have to dabble 
with files directly, whether ifs deleting, renaming, copying 
or moving them. The only means Workbench provides to do 
this is the Shell which although powerful is not very 
user-friendly - especially for the beginner. 

There are many good shareware file managers but by far 
the best is a commercial product called Directory Opus by 
SNOVAtromcs, Directory Opus has been around now for 
quite a while but it still retains the File manager crown hol- 
der. It is an excellent program that is completely config- 
urable so as to provide the maximum power for your sys- 
tem, as well as an interface suitable for your own require- 


ments. Directory Opus allows you to manipulate files

IRUS CHECKER 

John Veldthuis (Shareware) 


A virus is a specially written program that attaches teeff 
to your hard drive or floppy disks and goes all out to 
destroy the data on them - usually accompanied by a 
message from the sad and lonely individual who wrote 
the virus. 

The virus menace used to be fairly commonplace for 
Amiga owners but thanks to virus killers the spread has 
been severely reduced and new viruses are few and far 

Wsi* 



between,. However, it always pays to be cautious. Viir 
Checker, by John Vddthuis, is certainly the best and mi 
up-to-date virus killer there is, and constant upgrade 
always ensure the virus threat is kept under control 
Virus Checker is an unobtrusive program that simply si 
in the background of Workbench and waits for disks to 
inserted in your Amiga floppy drives. It then checks th 
and if it finds anything suspicious informs you of tf 
problem and asks you if you want it to be eradicated, 
tt also has the ability to check a directory and its conti 

for certain viruses as welt as kei 
a constant eye on particular fill 
that are vulnerable to ceitj 
viruses such as the Startui 
Sequence in the S directory.

RPACKER 


PROFESSIONAL 


Hko Francois (Commercial) 


The floppy disk, and to some extent the hard drive, do 
have one major drawback and that is their capacity. A 
Sloppy disk will fill very quickly and, due to the large pro- 
grams that it can take, a hard drive will also do the same 
eventually. Apart from deleting programs which you may 
not want to do there is little else you can do. Or so it 
seems. 

PowerPacker Professional is a program which effectiv- 
ely squashes programs so that they are smaller than 
originally but still run. Although the programs take about 
an extra two seconds to load (big deal), you can make a 
saving of almost 50 per cent. This means that a hard drive 
&f SSMb could be packed to hold 160Mb. An impressive 


saving you'll agree, If you want to squeeze the most out of 
your disks or hard drive, PowerFacker is an excellent 
choice,

Martin Huttenloher (Shareware) 


When you first get your Amiga, Workbench looks fairly dull - four colour icons and no background. Workbench 
provides plenty of programs to help you transform its look but they are still fairly limited with regards to design. 
Magic WEI is not a program but a brand new face lift for Workbench which includes a collection of spanking new 
icons for every program on Workbench and a large array of backdrops for you to drop on your desktop and 
windows. The design work is excellent and gives Workbench that professional look it has always needed. 

Also supplied are a series of new fonts as well as icons for floppy disks and every conceivable drawer you could 
ever imagine. For the full version you have to become a registered user (see the jargon box below), but the price is 
well worth it.

expander 


Stefan Gssowski {Commercial) 


Although Po we rP acker is excellent at 
compressing programs, its only drawback 
is that you have to load it every time you 
want to compress something. If you own 
a hard drive, DiskExpander is an excellent 
and powerful alternative. 

Once installed, DiskExpandef com- 
presses everything on your hard drive 
and then sits forever in the background 
compressing and uncompressing files as 
they are copied onto and from your hard 
drive. This process is so quick that you 
will never notice it actually working. 

There are several compressor* avail- 
able with ftiskExpander which will allow 
you to alter the type of compression - 
fast but less compression or slow but 
high compression - to suit your Own 
requirements, with the best balance 
increasing your hard drive's capacity by 
up to 50 per cent. 

If you want to return everything back 
to normal, DiskExpander is also capable 
of uncompressing everything back to its 
original state as well as providing statis- 
tics on how well the initial compression 
perform edi

ToolMandger is an excellent shareware program that allows you to access programs at 
it* mere dick of a button on your Workbench desktop. You tell it which programs 
you wish to access and then how you want that program presented to you - either as 
an image on the desktop or as an addition 4o the Tools menu on Workbench, 

This means you don't have to go wading through windows and drawers in order to 
access a particular program. All you have to do is click the program's ToolManager 
Icon or select it from the Tools menu - ToolManager will do the rest.

If you have a musical bent you'll find your 
Amiga finely suited to producing not only 
sound samples but also producing complete 
musical scores quickly and with ease. 

The bost music editor available for the 
Amiga is OctaMED, written by Tdjo 
Kinnunen, which is now at version 6., It 
allows you (o load in samples and add them 
to a notation or track editor in what are 
known as blocks which can then be bolted 
together in any order to provide a complete 
tune. 

QctaMED also comes complete with a 
sample editor which is almost as complete as 
a dedicated sampler package. You can even 
add special effects to your tunes and samples 
in order to spice them up a little. OctaMED 
also has a dedicated user group which pro- 
vide tree samples, tunes and information for 
members.

Yep, our com petition is hotting up as our mail 
oag is filling up to the top once again with more 
entries for our 'Song for the Amiga' competition, 
Actually, we won't tell you how many we got, 
but er, we could do with a few more. As I men- 
tioned last month, the ones we have received 
are absolutely brilliont and we will announce the 
winner soon, Keep them coming f Come on. oil 
you have to do is jot down some lyrics - it's as 
easy as that, You don't have to perform it if you 
don't want to. 

Send your ’Song for the Amiga' to: Hey took, I 
could be Guigsy next month!, System, Amiga

Oh dear 


Last month we Informed you about how to 
download a free demo copy of Alien Breed 3D

you did try entering the address on your Web 
browser, you would not have got very far, 

I wilt come clean, it happened because 3

Oh yes. that magic address is definitely

As you can see the charts are quite surpris- 
ing. Sensible World of Soccer third best fo 
Gloom and Star Crusader? Also, Pinball 
makes quite on appearance with the 
excellent Slam tilt and Obsession. And to 
lop off the charts, at 1 Oth place is a game 
we’ve never heard of, so there you go. 

The CO charts are quite predictable with 
Aminet occupying four spots in the entire 
top ten including the top spot with the 
latest Aminet release. There is only one 
actual game CD which appears and that's 
Gamers Delight 1 which was far better than 
the sequel. The last spot is taken by the 
Eric Sehwort* picture and animation CD 
which is, of course, excellent value for 
money. 


The Internet is great 


Although you may have read elsewhere in the 
issue that we have a Web site containing the 
news, AC AS, ESP and other features contained 
in the mag, did you know that System can be 
accessed toe Yep, you will find the latest news 
and possibly a review or too as well as a tips

It was sometime last year when it was reviewed

quite rightly so, It was an excellent puzzle game 
destined to frustrate even the most patient of 
people. It was viewed from above the action and

loads of obstacles and annoying gadgets that 
liked to prevent you from being successful, 
the data disk has finally arrived containing 60 
new levels aver four different worlds, but the main 
area of improvement is the difficulty level, If you 
thought you were a bit of a professional then think 
again because the difficulty level has been 
increased tenfold. Along with the brand new lev-

onship modes for people who saw Skidmarks as o 
walk in the park This one will bump up the diffi- 
culty level tenfold as there are new difficulty lev-

no doubt it is generally made better. If you're 
a big Timekeepers fan, £5.99 is really cheap tor 
the package and you could do a lot worse. So 
don't delay, update your copy of Timekeepers 
today. 


The package comes complete with a hard drivi

Single Skidmark disk into your collection - and; 
when you buy this, there Is a need for a hart 
drive. If you manage to swap this many disks you) 
will end up with very sore hands and a red hot disk

Whether this add-on is worth £1 5 Is another mi

After I was persuaded to come down from the

assign a case to protect invaluable information

exactly the same specifications surely must be 
one hell of a coincidence - or was it? It was part-

on the front. 

So, golf then, It's not particularly a great sport

be honest, we have waited for ages for a proper

World Golf is viewed from a top-down, sidey 
kind of view. It's difficult to explain, Your little golf-

any type of gamesplayer fo pick up and play. 

AH the options such as dubs, direction and 
power are on screen and can all be fiddled with 
to enable you to make a half decent shot The 
animation may not be quite what it should be but 
It's possible to live with it - you II always be more 
conscious of where the ball’s going rather than 
where It came from.

I 'm not sure Psygnosis actu-

a success this could be when , 
they first laid eyes upon It, 

Who would have thought 
such a bizarre creature

successful. 

Lemmings boasted hun- 
dreds of levels of puzzle 
and problem solving 
teasers and was,

the most frustrating games 
ever. Lemmings certainly 
put Psygnosis on the

was brought out on 
other formats such as 
the PC. their success increased even more, It 
doesn't surprise me that Psygnosis are no longer. 
Where are they now'? They're currently lapping it 
up releasing games for the Playstation and PC 
under the title Sony Interactive. Not bad consid- 
ering their success has much to do with the

To me, this was one of the finest games ever

Computing has ever had the pleasure to review. 

Before SWOS there were a number of previous 
efforts, each one slightly better than the last and. 
of course, we must not forget the comedy Public 
Domain versions featuring Apples. Oranges, War 
Spacemen and my favourite, England versus 
Germany back in 1966, which, of course, is seen 
in black and white. 

Don't forget there was life after SWOS, An

for a sequel to this excellent game which didn't live 
up to expectations, and also a rather poor golf 
game which could have been so much better, it 
was a bad choice and Sensible Software then 
waved farewell to the Amiga market and made 
for bigger and better things. 

Cannon Fodder receivea a highly acclaimed 
94 per cent from Jonathan Maddock and was 


one of the many games to sport a ’Gamer Gold' 
logo which is a symbol that goes down as a 
significant point in history. The 'Gamer Gold' was 
priceless. 

There was serious trouble afoot before the 
game's release, The slogan. War has never been so 
much fun' and the logo of a poppy resulted In 
Cannon Fodder being labelled 'monstrous' by an 
outraged Liberal Democrat The ’Daily Star' labelled 
the gome as 'shameful' and advised people not to 
buy it, This in itself generated more publicity than 
Sensible Software could have ever wanted. 

In the end the poppy was removed and Cannon 
Fodder became one of the most successful games 
ever.

hanks to an imaginative setting, enjoyable 
puzzles and intriguing plot. It has all the 
ingredients to become a timeless classic/ 

Flight of the Amazon Queen Is probably one 
of the most addictive adventure games to date. 

Set In the Amazonian jungle, the plot follows the 
exploits of Joe King, a pilot who is trying to rescue 
the glamorous film star, Faye Russell, and on his trav- 
els he meets various characters who will give him 
clues or objects to find. Although there was nothing par- 
ticularly new about this, what was particularly good was that 
the storyline evolved as you went along and the puzzles, although faxing, were fairly 
logical. You didn t find yourself stuck in one area - you could always move on. solve 
something, then come back. 

Binary Illusions and Warner Interactive chucked In a fair amount of humour, both 
visual and spoken gags, which made the title move along at an entertaining rate. The 
graphics looked pretty impressive too and It oil gelled together very nicely'

simulator of this quality on the Amiga, and I 
con guarantee you won't bs disappointed." 

Not. as you might expect, a cute platformer 
□bout a cuddly critter from Australia but a he II- 
copter action game. Developed by Bitfusion 
Virtual Realities and published by Empire, this vir- 
tual reality arcade simulation looked nothing short 
o? stunning. The developers created an impressive 
3D setting which gave you a highly realistic flying 
experience and not only that playability was spot 
on too. Described back then by Andy as a cross 
between Th underhawk and Desert Strike, there 
were many missions to take part in - these were 
set at different times, from dawn, noon, sunset 
and night, Artificial intelligence was used to good 
effect too, For example, you could fly around the 
sky stalking other aircraft rather than getting 
blown up yourself. The mixture of simulation and 
arcade play proved a winning combination.

Yes, you've probably heard the hype but even 
so it was a great day for the Amiga when this 
came out. It was released on all the new gener- 
ation machines but what was it developed on? 
None other than the Amiga. The idea behind this 
was to control a team of worms against another 
team of worms who all hove one mission in mind, 
namely to destroy the opposition. Vou could then 
choose from an array of weapons to blow the 
enemy into oblivion. 

This game was kind of an up-to-date 
Scorched Tanks go me pi ay wise, but where *his

nasty methods of destruction for the Worms, Cute 
little sound effects added to the appeal with the 
characters screeching 'Fatality' or Stupid at 
appropriate moments, Brilliant, what more can i 

say?

Aston Villa - recent Coca Cota Cup winners. 
Congratulations and respect go out fa them 
for winning a place in Europe 




D s It my imagination or Is it finally here? 

Why don't you fust sit back and 
breathe a sigh of relief because 
Championship Manager 2 has finally 
arrived - the waiting is over, The game 
is almost completed and here's the preview., 
Championship Manager was spawned a long 
time ago by a bloke named Oliver Collyer and he 
was responsible for presenting us with just about 
the best football gome - well actually, just about 
the best game ever, It was so good lhat it even 
managed to sell 300,000 copies across Europe 
and when the update disks were released they 
were like gold dust everywhere. 

Now the sequel Is almost finished after being 
put back month after month, The off idol release 
date was 29 February and advertisements had 
been put around months beforehand. But then 
came the news that it would be put back another 
month, However, I'm sure that If anyone has had 
the chance to play the PC version then Amiga 
owners will be crying out to Domprk to get them to 
take their time and make sure they don't rush it as 
it could spoil everything, PC owners will know all 
about lengthy waits especially for installation and 
for calculating results during mid’Season, although 
how Domark will manage to squeeze an 8Mb PC 
game onto a l Mb Amiga defies all logic - unless 
they decide to cut out some of the main features 
which would be disastrous. 


The PC version contains sampled commentary 
by none other than Clive Tyldsley and boasts

be nice to say "Ooh, I've been there," or Tvs

Chinese whispers 


A fantastic rumour which is circulating the 
whole Amiga world is the ability to allow 92 
human managers to battle it out against each 
other, so If you've got 92 close mates who 
promise not to trash your house when they lose 
then you must be pretty amazing to have such 
friends. So why the ability to have 92 human 
managers? It's not as though you can invite the 
entire pub round for a season or two, Is it for 
Play-by-Mail competitions whereby you con run 


a football management game via the excellent 
British postal service? Who knows ., Who really 
cares? 

If you do happen to become a big fan of the 
whole game you wilt be pleased to know that 
later in the year. Do mark are planning to release 
some data disks containing leagues from coun- 
tries such as Italy. Spain and Germany - so all 
those dreams of Kuntz and Ravioli will come true

decide to stick with your club - but surely a hole 
would be left on your achievement sheet. The 
national job is supposed to be what football's alt 
about - only the press seem to muck it up some- 
what, This is easily the best aspect about 
Championship Manager 2 - there is no press.., 
you'll be pushed hard enough to moke your own 
fans happy never mind anyone else, 
Championship Manager will also follow the 
actual season calendar so the Coca Cola Cup 
first round matches may be played before the 
Premier League starts, there will be weeks free in 
tie top for International games, and the cups 
such as European and Cup Winners will all be 
played mid-week. If you're unlucky enough to 
have matches postponed you can expect a 
hefty build up of games during your last two 
months. It's that realistic. 

Hopefully, all the bugs will be wiped clean 
from the sequel, especially for loan players. I’m 
not sure whether this has happened to anyone 
else but when l loaned a player out he stayed at

the new one began he decided to disappear

Insight 


If you can remember the amount of detail that 
Championship Manager contained, There will 
be a lot more. There are more stats fo look at so 
even the biggest statistic buffs will think they're 
In heaven. The match sequences have also 
been drastically changed, adopting □ very 
exciting look which certainly will not contain any 
bland system fonts which make the game look 
totally unprofessional 

Anyone who's already ordered a copy of 
Championship Manager 2 has done the right 
thing. I've gat a feeling this will be one of the 
best-selling Amiga games ever. You can check

A 


ttef native Software have been noted 
for their past releases such as Thomas 
the Tank Engine's Pinball. Sooty and 
Sweep paint packages and. more 
recently. Tracksuit Manager 2 which is 
reviewed In this issue. Who would have thought o 
Yorkshire software house with such o crazy track 
record could release an arcade Rugby game? 

Rugby has appeared in the media limelight for 
quite some time now, with the main area of dis- 
cussion being the Super League. Some of the 
great Rugby sides from all over the world have 
already begun batltlng It out for the champi- 
onship. The likes of Wigan, Casflefofd, Warrington 
and St Helens are pitted against the likes of Paris 
and er, that's it Well, at the moment, 

fhe main attraction so for is the fact it will ibe 
the first Rugby League game on the Amigo, 
According to the company boss of Alternative 
Software, Roger Hultey, he couldn't believe there 
hadn't been a Rugby League game already: 
"There have been plenty of Rugby Union games, 
but that's not the same thing," The development 
team involved are called Charybdis who hail from 
Nottingham and have only been in the business 
for a short time. 

Previous efforts of a Rugby 
game come from Audiogenic 
with their game Rugby World 
Cup which looked quite 
impressive, although the 
sprites failed to keep up 
with the speed of the 
action. I'm not sure where 
the other game came from, 
although it was viewed from 
overhead like Kick Off 2 and 
It wasn't at all bod. 

However, two games is 
never enough to ful- 
fil the dreams of 
Rugby loving 
Amiga owners, so 
can Pro Rugby 
be the first Rugby 
League game to 
take the world by 
storm? 

The PC and Play -sta- 
tion version of Pro 
Rugby is still a long way 




One more feature rumoured to appear in the Amiga version is the commentary, Yes, 
l said commentary. Never before hove we heard a real life commentator on the 
Amiga woffle on about the action. We all know about the Ami_ 
ties yet they never seem to be used in games - just music and graphic demos, If 
you've watched a league match on Sky Sports you will have heard two of the best 
commentators who have ever lived, the 
greats like Hugh Johns or Kenneth Wolstenhome, but for entertainment they just 
cannot be beaten. These men are Eddie Hemmings and Michael ’Stevo Stevenson. 

Eddie is the main commentator on the action while Stevo will chip in with his quick 
wit, making a superb comedy duo who cannot fail to please lhe commentators are 


certainly the icing on the cake of what should be an absolutely brilliant 











off completion, never mind 
ihe Amiga version, so we’ve 
decided to label it as work 
In progress rather than a 
preview, 

Basically, the game w 
be viewed from a halfway 
line perspective (like a view 
from a Main Stand) which is 
-usually the best option for 
the Amiga after seeing a 
number of footbail games 
adopting various 
angles. lt r s also the 
simplest and 
! con see all 
your players 
on the pitch 
so you can 
plan attacks 
and position 
your line Of 
defence. 

Also, as the 
gome is meant to 
be os realistic as 
possible the pitch will 
become torn up as you 
begin diving about the 
pace, you will be able 
to control and see the 
spin on the ball when 
you're passing it down 
toe line, and a whole 
lot more, Obviously, 
details for this on the 
Amiga are quite 
sketchy but you 
can bet that 
Alternative 

Software will squeeze as much as possible in for 
Amiga fans to enjoy, 

The graphics (although on the PC) are pretty 
outstanding and feature massive sprites for the 


YvU can see Ille sprites from tfi* PC version 
took excellent - ehonlcy foe. TTiey t*fHI each 
have their own* JmffviiflMf Joofc and personality 
/u£f like realdife* I mentioned before that Pro 
ftughy is a long way of eonTpJofiof? and it's diffl* 
cult to say which features from the PC version 
will make it into the final Amiga version. 


The chosen one 


So why Rugby League? Well, obviously it is the 
best idea as It seems to have injected new life 
into itself from the Super League - especially 
with armchair supporters. However, the main 
factor is that Roger Hulley is a big Castleford 
fan and for him to see his own team in his own 
game isn't bad, 

Rugby League is also pretty strict in the way 
it's played. For example, there can only be 
five tackles then play must change hands. 
You can imagine that this is slightly easier to 
work into a computer program rather lhan 
the Rugby Union approach where you don'1 
stop and start as much, and there aren't as 
many rules, 

, players who will also have their own char- 
„ acters, personality and looks. But again 
these graphics will certainly excel on the PC, 
so we'll just have to wait and see how clever 
the programmers are in maintaining these 
original features, it will be difficult, but worth 
the wait.

And as you can see, on first looks Tracksuit

to be honest It showed It might've been quite a

Manager you will know exactly what to exp< 
You can manage an English club from the| 
Premier League to the 3rd division and there is 
real objective or goal (Ho ho) to be achieved - 
you need is success, 

When you begin the gome it will seem as if y< 
are sitting down at your desk within the stadium -| 
Incidentally, no other football managemei 
game has used this idea to great effect apai 
from On The Ball, You have access to a telephoi

action, but it still pauses, and If you score a goal 
an annoying flashing display will come up and 
you have to press the button to kick off again, 
This, in my mind, defeats the object of speeding 
the game up. 

The whole presentation of the match looks iike 
a PD program written in Amos, When you return 
to your desk to view league tables it looks so 
much better - it's like a different game, Although 
the game lasts for seasons and seasons, I could- 
n't get through the first month without becoming 
annoyed and frustrated, Even the biandness of 
the original Championship Manager's match 
sequence was more enjoyable and exciting. 


Here f s l/te complete squad* Here are 
some players. Here are some 
numbers..* Here's a bland caption 



Here are all the cups. You can find them under 
the menu Cups Man Utd will never win again' 


4 If you think 
you can put 
up with the 
awful match 
screens then 
there's 

enough detail 

here to satisfy 

you to make 
up for It} 


Final word 


The only thing stopping 
Tracksuit Manager from 
being a Premiership con- 
tender is the truly awful 
match screens. If you think 
you can put up with them 
there's enough detail here 
to satisfy you to make up for 
it although with Champion - 
ship Manager 2 minutes 
away, maybe you should 
think twice,

iicpurd Pei/fifn, a Swedish 

team, fpok eerie in to make 
their mark with fjhis title 


A 


s any Amiga gamesplayer will know, 
publishers 21 st Century have always 
been prolific in bringing out high qual- 
ity titles for the platform, Their games 
usually fall info the category of pin- 
ballers and each time a new one comes out it 
seems a step up from the last one they released - 
despite the fact you thought that one couldn't 
get any better, Firstly there was Pinball Dreams, 
then Fantasies then Illusions, All getting better 
each time. 


However, sometime last year they brought out 
a title which unfortunately brake this rule. And 
nobody was impressed - except perhaps Amiga 
Technologies who made the questionable deci- 
sion to include the game, Pinball Mania, In their 
MagicPack bundle. The problem with this title, 
though, was that rhe development team they'd 
chosen was different to the one who'd done the 
other games. This new team didn't quite have the 
flair that Digital illusions had and although not a 
terrible title. It wasn't that wonderful either. 



6 There has been no 
compromise on 

gameplay, graphics or 
sound and you 
immediately get the 
feeling of a polished 
product ^ 

Mediocre most aptly described it, After that we d 
pretty much given up hope, We thought 2 1st 
Century might, at this point, just give up on us all. 
Fortunately though, they must still have faith in the 
Amiga platform, and good on them too. Signing 
up the talents of a new Swedish team, Liquid 
Dezign, a new title wag soon on the horizon, ft 
happened quicker than you could say "If s a new 
pinball game from 21st Century" and no sooner 
had we rime to do a preview then we were sent 
the final copy - no delays or anything - ready to 
review. Too good to be true?’ we thought. Weil, 
no It's pretty impressive stuff, 

Despite a speedy release, there has been no 
compromise on gameplay, graphics or sound 
and you immediately get the feeling of a pol- 
ished product - and one which will boost a jaded 
Amiga gamesplayers collection You get four 
tables to fry your hond at, and each is themed 
and has music, graphics and missions to match 
First up is Mean Machines, a motor racing table.

the next is Pirates, with, (surprise) pirates, piranhas 
and mutiny, Ace of Space has a futuristic theme 
where space ships, asteroids and aliens provide 
ihe setting, and lastly, Night of Demons is a fable 
inhabited by a naked (bar a strategically placed

T Yacks and ramps have been well 
designed for players of ail skills 

a great deal to explain about the gameplay - 
you simply use the keys to flip the flippers and 
send fhe ball snooting around the table, There are 
plenty of missions fo get to grips with and each 

table has a variety of modes to keep things differ-

Video modes 


The Video Modes are played in the 
scorepanel and add some variety to the 
game. Here are some that are available-. 

No Brain No Pain - you must try and keep 
track of where the brain is going while the 
skulls are rotated. When they stop you have 
to pick the skull that the brain is in. 


Death Planet - fly your ship through the inner 
tunnels of the planet to get to the centre, 
It's harder than it sounds because you have 
to guide your ship through the narrow 
tunnels with the flipper keys. 

Knife Throwing - throw knives at your ene- 
mies and try to avoid being taken out by 


cannon fire. The flipper keys allow you to 
move left and right whilst the return key will 
throw a knife. 

Formula 1 Race - there are^ix windy tracks 
that you have to steer your car around with 
the flipper keys, Don't bump your car too 
much though as you will lose energy

review 


i Graphically, 
the tables are 
well drawn and 

detailed 
enough to look 
good but not so 
much as to 
interfere with 
the gameplay • 



Ace of Space of fers a video mode which has 
you pitting your skills against depth-defying 
tunnels in your space ship 


ent What makes this rather different from the 
rest, though, is the LED score panel at the top of 
the screen, Rather than just showing simply the 
score, you also get various video modes which 
provide different arcade challenges. On Mean 
Machines, for example, the video mode shows a 
car which you'll have to guide around the track 
with the flipper keys. These extra challenges work 
exceptionally well (although they definitely don't 
have enough gameplay to stand up In their own 
right) and keep things interesting, 

As far as the main gameplay goes, the move- 
ment of both the ball and the flippers feels real- 
istic and the tables vary from being quite simple 
with only a few tracks to windy, complex efforts 
where you'll need to keep your eyes peeled. The 


J 



Night at the Demons looks quite simple in tayout 
but the various missions keep it taxing 



Jin lilt 



The scorcpanet at the top provides animation* J- 
add atmosphere such as giving the impression 
you are flying through the gmtany 

sound effects also work well in enhancing 
realism. Graphically, the fables are well dras 
and detailed enough to look good but not 
much as to interfere with the gameplay, Night 
Demons, for example, may suit a beginner beft< 
as the table is quite plain with only a few rami 
and tracks. These different levels of difficult 
whether intentional or not, work well and 
the game ideal for any pinball player - whethf 
novice or expert . 

There are some other nice little extras such 
a Lanesaver Feature which is a metal fence 
the sidelane which forces the ball bock into pl< 
instead of allowing it to be iost down the sit 
lane. Another is the Mag notable which is a ma; 
netlc playfield where you control the magnel 
with the flipper keys to get the ball loekt 
between them which results In various awards. 



al word 


Siam fitt is without a doubt an excellent title, 
the one level this is an accurate simulation 
the real thing (as much as it can be in 2D ai 
way) and on another, the arcade elei 
makes for something different to keep It vari 
Graphics are colourful and detailed with 
designed tracks and ramps to keep each tat 
individual. The cartoon style in the scorepi 
adds novelty too. 

The sound tracks work well enoui 
(although some are rather cliched such as 
rock tune), and they accompany each tal 
appropriately, Whether it is up to the 
standards as Digital Illusions' last veni 
Pinball Illusions, is really going to be down 
individual preference. It's up to the same q\ 
ify technically and it does look as good, 
whether you buy it or not depends on whetl 
you're bored of Illusions. This is a great g< 
and if Liquid Dezign keep this up then it 
tainly looks like this new team have a orii 
future ahead of them. Let's hope their 
plans Include the Amiga.

Amiga Model:^. 







This month Frank 
Nord presents 
three handy hints 
and tips for 
Workbench users 



m fg iruses ore s«ary things made scarier by she 
media now thai ihey seem to hove lalched 
onto ne silicon version af AIDS os news- 
I worthy copy, But as on Amigo owner you 

{□n real easy about mosl of ihe viruses yon read 
obout in the pope* - theyll only affect PC owners. 
There om o lot of myitis obout viruses, probably 
spread by their creators, thai leod to people being 
^necessarily warned aboui their software odle^tion. 
You don't hove to worry oboul catching o virus From a 
3isk brmaHed under anything other than AmigaDQS, 
Iso don't worry aboui putting PC disks into your drive. 
You don't have to worry obau* a virus contaminating 


your Amigo's clock or Kiek&tort ftOM, it won'l hap- 
oert r you don't even need to worry about o virus 
invading your machine vio modem, although if you 
download software and the archive has a virus, you 
wiM have a problem. 

There are certain measures you can take to ensure 
hat your exposure to viruses is minimal. The First is to 
make sure you know the source of each and every 
Floppy disk you use on your machine, and, iF you are 
; del * games player: make sure you hum oFf your 
machine for about a minute between different games. 


You should also always keep diski write-protected 
whenever possible. There's not much point write pro- 
tecting your hand drive, of course, but then you'll 
probably be onto the next stage of protection 


anyway. 

The next stage is to moke sure you have some sort 
of virus checker running, Although new viruses for the 
Amiga seem to have toiled off somewhat (is this real 
proof that o machine is in decline? Noone wants to 
write viruses far if?], shere ore still plenty of PD 
programs dedicated to eradicating the ones that do 
exist. AC 5 firm favourite is still Virus Checker, even: 
thought the newest versions of it seem o little blocted 
in size, but it doesn't really matter which one you 
choose, they all do the job admirably. 


Dragon who? 


Wot Orogfdn who,! drag ‘n drop* T ft is fcflfur? of the OS is much underused by 

owners, even though it hai been routed os the next best fhing by Microsoft 
and Apple in the latest versions of their operating systems* The Amigo has had 
drag f n drop capabilities for a long time now and quite o lot of programmers hove 
included things coifed App Windows, AppMe nus and App Icons in their programs, flut 
what ore they? 

Wei/, Appwindaws ore windows in a program that you ran drag icons to load 
them or perform operations on them, fxomp/ei of this would include Too/sDoemon 
2.1 and SworJftfo* Try dragging icons into the windows af either of these two pro- 
grams or many orb ers and see what happens. App Menus put a new menu item on 
your foots menu that a/fows you to access the program that treated it easily , espe- 
cioffy if you have a lot of screens open, and Applcons are also there to make access 
to programs that use another screen easier* Try dragging a pichire fife onto QPaint's 
Appkon and see what happens. These aren't the only programs to hove these 
features, so check all the stuff on your hord drive now for App- compatibility!

ration tool? Well, if your controller supports the 
RUB standard* as most do these days, then you 
con use HDToo/box to prep and partition your 
hard drive ond hare the added security of the 
knowledge that you can follow the instructions 
laid dawn by Commodore, and taken up by 
Amiga Tcdinalogies, for the formatting of hard 
disk drives* 

All you need do to get the program working 
is examine HD Toolbox f s foof types* wfll see a 
tooltype colled "SCSI DtVICE NAMS^ You con 
change this to match the SCSI device used by 


your controller* For example, the SCSI device for 
an Qktogon is called oktogan, device , while 
that for a GVP hard drive controller is known os 
^gvpicsfi device ^ Activate the foo/fype by remov- 
ing the brockets around it and add your device 
name, making sure you use the some cose, Now* 
when you use HDfaofbox, if will look far the 
drive (or drives I on that card . 

Further, if you have a CD-ROM drive that 
causes you problems when you boaf (the 
Amiga looks for something to boot from the CD 
and it fakes ages], then you can do this* Make 
your CD-ROM drive's SCSI ID d, if at all possible 
- some A 3 000 owners won't be able to 
fake advantage of this tip - and load 
HD Too /box to check you've done if right. 


d open its 
altvae that 


says as tne max aaoress ro inis wm stop 
HDToofbox from seeing you CD-ROM drive* 

It won f matter to the CD-ROM or your SCSI 
controller, they'll stiff be able to see it, but if 
you go into HDToofbex now you'JJ sea that the 
drive with the highest unit number now, has a 
changed' mork on it. Save the changes to the 
drive foil that's happened if that the flog that 
marks the last unit in the SCSI chain has; 
been updated! ond now when you reboot 
you should have no trouble with that pesky 
CD-ROM drive r

JUNE 1996 






Paul Overaa looks at 
the official Amiga 
include files and 1 
outlines the benefits 
they offer 



T o a large extent; coming to terms wish 
690x0 coding on ihe Amigo simply means 
coming lo teems with the purpose and use 
of the routines present in the Amigo's sys- 
tem libraries, Exec r DOS, intuition, godhxJs and so 
on all provide ihe programmer with massive eolfee- 
lions af functions lhai simplify a great many coding 
tests. 

To ease the burden on programmers, 
Commodore, now Amiga Technologies,, make avail- 
able a variety of system Files containing thousands 
of EQUoie definition^ macros,, system slruchjre tem- 
plates and so Forth. IKe existence of these Files helps 
in two ways: Firstly r it eliminates the need For pro- 
grammers to create theif own definitions (a jab 
which is dearly bolh time consuming and error 
prone), and secondly, it promoles standardisation - 
alt |or mast) Amiga programmers soon get into the 
habit of using the ready made definitions provided 
in the includes. 


Recognisable 

There ore, in fad, two versions of the system files. C 
programmers use o set of header files' con laming, 
os expected, Gstyle system definitions and these 
files con be easily recognised, nol only by their con 
tents but by the fad they all have J .h‘ filename 
extensions Assembler programmers have □ similarly 
arranged set of system definitions wrilten in ways 
usable to the 680x0 coder. These 'include' files ore 
again always instantly recog nisobfo since they have 
\i filename extensions. 

The Amiga system files then provide the C and 
assembly language programmer with broadly paral- 
lel universes, A C programmer mighl, for instance, 
use definitions token from the devices/ send. h head- 
er file. Someone coding a similar application using 
680x0 assembler would use the device s/serial.i 
include hie. 

AIE commercial assemble* packages, such as 
Devpac, came with □ set of ihe assembly language 
versions of the include files. Public domain assem- 
blers, such as Charlie Gibb's A68k, da not and, in 
this latter case, the files hove to be purchased sepa- 
rately, There are, in fact, some significant advan- 
tages to buying the separate official files anyway 
because you nol only get the includes themselves 
but the function autadocs - text files which explain 




Compatibility issues 


The latest system hies avoffabte are Far version 39* T of fhe Amiga's operating sysfem 
and these, life# afJ previous releases, ore 'backwards compatible'. This means, for 
example? that a Workbench I. J -based programmer ran use fhe up**0'dafe system 
Fites providing fhey stick to using only those library routines which were, in fact, 
available with fhe L3 operating system release * 

Another point worth mentioning is fhaf programmers who already have an earlier 
set of include files only reafly need fa update fheir Fites if they now have a mare up- 
to-date or upgraded? Amiga , Atony programmers, tor example, originally purchased 
fhe (now dated] Workbench L3 heoder/teefode tile set but have quite sensibly 
continued fa use them simply because they are still using 1 \3-based mathinesi

Serious about the 



Then you are going to need fhe official includes for 
to give fhern their proper name the Native 
Developer Update Disks). No matter wh at assem- 
bler you are using,, yew are, at the very feast going 
fa need the extra documentation provided. Wfthouf 
fhis documentation you simply won't know whaf 
new library facilities ore on otter, nor how those 


new Functions or facilities present should be used, 
The Native Developer Update disks are then, or 
at least should be on essential port of every Amiga 
coder** programming arsenal* 

The Amigo Native Developer Update files ore 
available from Amiga Technologies (01779 6306I7J

This month Paul 
Overaa offers a 
beginners eye 
view of how ARexx 



oerforms its magic 





A while ago someone wrote to me asking 
how ARexx allows programs to communi- 
cate with each other, You knowj, how 
AJRexx makes sure ihoi ihe right messages 
end up being senl to the right programs and so on, 
Since this is 0 1op;€ which might be of interest to quite a 
few ARexx users, I thought I'd devote this month's instal- 
ment to explaining the general principles behind the 
A Rexx messaging system, 

The First point worth making mgy came as a bi* erf a 
&hock - you see AUexx doesn' t octeolky do that much af 
ihe communicahons wort itself, Instead it mokes use d 
the general message passing facilities that Exec 
provides, and il is here ihoi <he story really stork. 

Exec is the Amiga's multi-tasking executive, In other 
words it is the part of ihe Amiga's operating system 
which controls sharing the Amiga's processor time 
between all the programs lhal ore running in. Exec also 
performs o host of other operating system 'housekeep- 
ing' [abs and many oF ils facilities are based on 
generalised routines presenl in ihe Exec library. 

One of Exec’s support arrangements is o message 
system based on the use of a system structure known as 
q message pari and any program which needs tg cam« 
municate with another has therefore, as a first step, to 
&ei up one of these message ports. Ta transmit a mes- 
sage □ program will allocate a blodk of memory, fill it 
with ihe data which farms the message, and then send 
ii to the message port belonging to the destination 
program, 

Once a message has been collected, i.e, unlinked 
from ihe receiving program's message port and used, it 
ge«s ‘repl ed' la This is a job which involves ihe pro- 
gram which received ihe message linking lhat same 
message into Ihe message pari af the program that orig- 
inal ly sent ihe message. The only difference on this 
return |Oumey is that the message will be given a fin- 
ished wirtV marker - tins tells the sender that the mes- 
sage has been dealt with and, therefore, that ihe block 
of mem cry being used for ihe message is free For re-use. 


But nothing moves 


f very one talks fn terms of these messages being sent and revived because that, in a 
logical sense, is whof s happening. Information is being passed from one task to 
another. If* actual fact, however, nothing realty gets 'sent', copied, or moved of alt - 
the data that forms the message stays exactly where if is in memory. What happens 
is that the block of memory representing the 'message has various address fields 
present which get adjusted so that the message gets 'logically attached to the 
message port it is destined for. 

The good thing about this arrangement is that there if never any need to copy the 
message information * Programs that receive a message read the contents of the very 
some block of memory that the program sending the message allocated, and this 
makes the arrangement extremely fast « 

Another important point about Exec-style messages is that the Exec arrangements 
only specify the fay out af the initial port of the message (list pointer areas and so 
onj. Exec ignores the rest of the message contents so programs ore free to add on ta

OW FOR THE AREXX CONNECTION 


ARexx parts are just ordinary Exec message 
port Si Nothing more, nothing less * They are 
referred to as 'ARexx ports simply because 
they ore being used to collect ARexx -oriented 
messages. Similarly, ARexx messages, as you 
hove now probably guessed, are just ordinary 
Exec-style messages, with the only distinctive 
feature being that they have Aflexx»specifrc 
information tagged on, 

ARexx's real jab, as far as its communica- 
tions facilities are concerned then, is primarily 
to act as a sort of control centre. Programs 
send their messages to ARexx using Exec func- 
tions, and ARexx sends then? on to the required 
destination, again using Exec functions * How 


does ARexx know where the messages should 
be going? Weil, as for os the scripts that you 
write are concerned, you tefl it by having your 
script set the current host using the ADDRESS 
command . 

ARexx checks far and, all being welt, locates 
these ports by looking at a 'public ports' list 
which Exec maintains* Because of this any port 
that is used for ARexx communications has to 
be mode visible to the system by h oving its 
name added to this list (this is something which 
is taken core of automatically by any program 
which contains an ARexx interface }, Luckily, all 
this complexity is transparent to the ARexx 
user because almost all the communications 


magic gets handled automatically* As far as 
ARexx parts ore concerned, there are only two 
things ARexx users need ro remember* Firstly f 
a message part must be recognisable to ARexx 
af the time you try to communicate with if- In 
other words, the program you wish to 'talk to' 
must be up and running before you try talk to 
if via ARexx, 

Secondly , you need to be aware of the fact 
that the functions used to search the Exec public 
ports Jilt ore case sensitive * This, by the way, is 
the reason why when you get the case of o 
port name wrong in an ARexx script the port 
never gets found and ARexx issues on error 
message!

Dove Cusick extols 
the virtues of Internet 
Relay Chat - the 
Nets best 
conversation kit 







M 







W hen ihe moss media talk about the 
Internet whgt they mean is, of 
course, the World Wide Web- With 
■i*. Its stylish front-end it certainly bob 

ih-e part, and indeed the impression lhat many 
advertisers give is that ihe WWW is the be-all and 
end-all of the Net, 

Admittedly, if appearances counted For every- 
thing, this might be ihe case. &ul there are plenty of 
other considerations - interactivity being a prime 
one. Surfing the Web is often □ lonely pastime Yes, 
you could participate in o heated discussion on a 
Web Chat site, but it's a slow off air, if you really 
want to have a conversation over the Net, by for 
the best option is lo try IRC, or Internet Relay Chat. 

On an IRC channel it is possible to exchange 
□pinions and advice m a mailer of seconds, not 
only with the people on the channel as a group, but 
also by engaging in private conversations with ane 
other person at a time. You can also transfer files 
directly ffom one user to another, and many chan- 
nels also support exlro commands which ore 
granted to certain users individually 

There are plenty of Amiga-specific chat channels, 
although my personal favourite is easily 
#Amigacofe- Even an IRC newbie is welcomed 


*Amigacafe 
has a Wet 
jjr«s*nce loo 



All the standard IRC commands can be accessed 
at Ihe click of a button, and after o little playing 
around with ihe settings it is possible to customise 
Am IRC to your precise requirement! Silly sound

there, and the atmosphere is always friendly and 
often very entertaining. Things are nicely organ 
ised, with elected Ops keeping an eye on ihe pro- 
ceedings, and Rangers who step in when there 
aren’t many Ops around. However, the supervision 
is refreshingly low-key and friendly, and you need 
not fear being booted off the channe- without good 
reason. After a couple of visits, no matter what lime 
of ihe day oir nig hi you turn up, ihe chances ore 
you II get to know the regulars well. Some charac- 
ters seem lo be more or less permanently conn Eded 
- these are the student folk (most notably horn 
Canterbury] whose Amigas are actually connected 
to the Net from iheir rooms. Talk about 
convenience,-. 

Indeed most IRC channels inevitably tend to be 
dominantly populated by university students with 
free Mel access, although this is probably typical af 
the Net os o whale „ It's not necessarily o bod thing 
anyway. Not oniy ore students a generally Friendly 
bunch, but their standard of English tends to be 
exlremely high, even if it s not iheir first language! 

With the emergence in recent months of 
Vaporware's excellent AmIRC dtenl, there really is 
no reason not to get involved in IRC. This marvel- 
lous application, which will of course be making a 
welcome appearance in Amiga Technologies' 
Surfer Pact, makes use of Stefan Sfuritz's hugely 
popular MUI. This boasts a beautiful user interface 
that is really simple to operate. AmIRC is also heav- 
ily laden with incredibly useful options, all af which 
are explained tn the accompanying documentation. 


effects con even be added, and the ARexx support 
means that scripts can be executed easily. These 
could perform handy operations like launching a 
mailer program, as with Oliver Campion's YamlRC 
script. On the other hond, they could just he for 
amusement - such os the highly comical Chef scrip*, 
which turns everything you say into ihe mack 
Swedish spoken by the Sesame Stree* chef. Ask nice- 
ly and somebody on an Amiga channel will happily 
send you the scripts using the DCC file transfer 
method, 

Don't bother grappling with the likes af 
Grapevine, good though i* is - toddle along to 
Aminel and download ihe unregistered version af 
AmIRC now and you couid be chatting owgy within 
minutes, Don't forget lo register it later though, ond if 
you are not one of the lucky few who has a free con- 
nection, remember to keep an eye on the phone bill 
because charting con be addictive, It's generally a 
good idea to do your Web surfing in the background 
at the same time, assuming you have sufficient memo- 
ry lo do so. rd also get into ihe habit of running a 
phonebill meter (such os Gnlineometer] on your IRC 
screen so you don't get corned away.

I 


Need a way to make 
money? Stationery 
packs are an easy 
money spinner, as 
Frank Nord explains 



Completely 

stationery 


S \q hungry pacta are an everyday nECEsaity 
for companies and individuals who write a 
lot of letters, and can be made easily and 
v: cheaply an the equipment you hove at 

home. Let's start with personalised stationery and 
move onto ihe more serious business of creating 
corporate stationery. 

The first thing to bear in mind if yau are going lo 
sell your services to individuals is ihe fact that they 
a r e notoriously fickle and indecisive Don't offer up 
your entire font Jist for appraisal, yaull never get a 
dec? sion. Just after a menu of a few styles, say eight 
or ten, in a variety of ihemes - bc^d, fancy, futuris- 
tic, and so an. f^ost of yaur customers are going to 
be letter writers SO you won't hove too much call far 
real y funky display faces - they just won't appeal 
to the sort of person who likes to write letters lo 
people n stead of e-moil. So go with □ conservative 
mix with jusi a couple of the more outlandish fonts, 
far variety's sake. 

Set up a print sample haoklet with a fake name 
ond address used as the beheading, jusi so peo- 
ple can see exactly how their letterhead will look, 
and bear in mi nd the fact that plain copier bond 
isn't redly good enough ro charge money for letter- 
heads. It definitely pays to look for nice paper to 
offer yaur customers. PoperDirect is c great source 
of paper that looks very professional {including vel- 
lum effect and patterned papers} ond they offer 
papers at up lo 1 35gs*n r for that really weighty feel 
|of dinary copier bard is usually BGgsm'U They also 
have heat transfer foil that you can use 
with a loser printer to really ]ozz up 1 


Four very simple 
designs knocked up 
in (wo minutes flat - 
I'm sure you can do 
better 



letterheads., al on additional cost of 
course. 

Final presentation will also help you 
sell yaur product and a nice bit of ribbon 
to lie ihe paper together is o goad touch, 
as would be a box lo keep the paper in. 

Now, before you ail rush la yaur local 
printers to gel A4 boxes, stop for a 
minute and let me explain the really 
goad bil to you. If you are going ta 
make up a box of 4& sheets of writing 
paper, you will anfy use 12 sheets of A4 
and only actually print on, say. four of 
those sheets. Why? Because nobody 
writes falters on A4, and Basildon Bond 
certainly isn't available at thal si zb. No, 
people write on A5 paper, a quarter the 
size of A4, saving you heaps of cash for 
paper and your printer's loner cartridge 
or ink refills. 

So the answer lo your box size ques- 
tion fs to gel a box lhar is capable of 
holding 43 sheets of A5 paper, 
envelopes and the rihbon la fie ihem with 
One individual ! know of actually went to his 
local printer ond go! a set of 50 of these boxes 
made up with a nice marbled finished and lined 
interior for about £30. Not loo much to ask far, 
□nd it will have o great impression when given lo 
the punter. 

Although this enterprise can be seen as □ 
license to prim money, you'll need lo know whai 
Id charge people, f have seen personalised sta- 
tionery packs advertised far as much as 
£30, but I think these were 
probably printed on gold leaf 
or something to warrant this 
high a price tag. I think o price 
sel somewhere between £10 
and £20 h reasonable and 
mokes o good gift idea, far reta 
lives. If you were to charge £10 
fof the pock of 48 sheets, you 
could probably expect to moke

Phil South begins a 
series about how to 
olan and execute 
an Amos program 








T his is o subject I come back to lime after 
time, and is it any wonder, the amount of 
mail and e-mail I get asking me how to write 
Amos programs* I'm not running a corre- 
spondence course, in Case you were wandering, but 
at Limes it feels □ bit like it, i though! it was time to 
visit Amos afresh, and show how you would plot out 
and plan a program from start to finish, and how 
you would ensure ihol no! only does ihe program 
perform well but also is easy and attracts? la use, 
Before you even start Amos up, and I've said this 
time and again, you should have a plan. Of course, 
like most things, you might get your ideas from a 
piece of code or on experiment you've conducted, 
or a routine which you've evolved which does some- 
rhrng cool, Sul ideas can't be developed into a fully 
functioning program by hocking away a! the pro- 
gram editor and hoping lhal you remember to hong 
everything together. You hove to figure out what the 
program wifi do frrst, what order things will happen, 
and how the program will look on screen. 

Interface development h a key issue in the mak- 
ing of any software, and the user should know just 
by looking at your screen what he has to da and 
which button he should press to get the effect lie’s 
looking far. I see so many Amos programs which 
have horrible graphics ond difficult to fathom con- 
trols and, worse still, methods of working the pro- 
gram which are counter inluitive. Graphical inter- 
faces are well aver IQ years aSd now, and most of 
us are familiar with at least one very good example, 
she aptly named fntuition interface which is pari of 
Ami-go DOS. Ygu could da a Sqi worss than follow 
that example or, better yei, use it in your program 
with ihe many useful Amos extensions which ore 
available,. 

So, you have to firsi figure out who! it is that your 
program does ond how it does it, but high on your 
list should be how does the uset see the buttons 
and menus, and is it obvious what must be done at 
every stage 3 ’ If you ask yourself this question at 
every stage of development ihen you will end up 
wilh □ program which looks ond fads right, 

fcn planning how he program works, you would 
do best to work in a kind of pseudocode, a list of 
instructions which describe in words of English 





A clear interface is a 
must these days

Summary 


So when you ore embarking am a new project, start 
with a pen and paper rafher than hacking about 
aimlessly with the Amos program. By all means cre m 
ate small routines to cope with each part of the pro- 
gram, but don't attempt to fit them together until 
you have a clear Idea what it's all going to Joofe like 
and how it's going to work . Keep a notebook of 
good ideas - this serves a dual purpose of beeping 
all your ideas in one place where you r on refer to 


them as well as giving you somewhere to jot down 
anything which occurs to you while you re on the 
bus or at work far away from your Amiga. 

Next month we'll get this process raffing by start- 
ing to create a multimedia program which will com* 
bine graphics and tent and sound to show off o 
range of products* forming o demo which you could 
upload to the internet os arc electronic brochure. See 
you then, 


If you have any other Amos programs 
or queries about Amos, then please 
write to the usual address, which is: Phi) 
South, Amos Column, Amiga Computing, 
Media House, Adlingtan Park, 
Macclesfield SKI 0 4NP. Please send rou- 
tines on an Amiga disk with notes on 
how the program works on paper,, not 
os text Hies on the disk. Make the rou- 
tines short enough to appear in print, 
i.e. no more than about 30-4 0 lines of 
cade, and if possible moke them use no 
external graphics, or if they can't he 
used without them then be sure to pro- 
vide them on the disk in native IFF for- 
mot, and the some goes for sound Files. 
Follow these guidelines and it's just 
possible you might get your programs

Steve White explains 
how you can add 
bone and muscle 
and the dynamics 
of movement 





L ast month I demonstrated how to draw the 
human form easily and quickly using only □ 
few simple tules. This month my aim is So 
explain briefly ths techniques ihat can be 
empJoyed to add realism so a lifeform, whether it be 
human or animal, This involves adding anatom jed 
references such as bone, muscle and flesh in order 
to create a sense of realism and dynamics to a 
creature, 

Drawing a human head or body is fairly simple 
provided you stick to ihe rules, but Fleshing out a 
form with bone and muscle requires some knowl- 
edge of anatomy Fortunately, rhat means you only 
have to understand bones and muscle, and nol the 
internal organs, and only I hose that effect the skin 
on ihe body. 

The first thing to da when learning anatomy is to 
locate the points on the body where bone and mus- 
cle is prominent, However, it is also a goad idea to 
get as many references So a particular poinl in o 
variety of different positions as bone and muscle 
changes os the body is moved. 

As an example, lake a look at your forearm. 
Apart from the elbow and wrist the^r are no real visi- 
ble muscles or bones, Bui clench you r fist and

When %ht is thro wn astro** (fw 
fa ce the prominent features 
•uph as the cheekbone^ ne*a and 
mouth fight up and cast shadow* 


muscles push up the skin along the side of the fore- 
arm In this example we would use the muscles Id 
demonstrate a punch or thrust. Already you have 
recognised a particular anatomical feature associat- 
ed with □ particular dynamic or position. Learning 
about anatomy isnl exoclly exciting but it is vitally 
importonl iF you want to design lifeform images that 
are realistic and accurals. 


Animated forms 


If you ore planning to create an animation that 
will include life farm} (l hate that form), you will 
a at only have to learn about the basics of 
anatomy but aha understand the movement 
and flexibility 1 of a body. By understanding the 
way the muscles and bones change as the body 
moves you can make your animation much 
more dynamic ond add weight, age and sex to 
your subject matter. 

The best way to understand movement a fa 
form h to study it and moke notes- Obviously, 
you're teen to get into the nitty gritty of 
design, but take time out to understand the 
subject m after first and you'll reap the 
rewards. Take a look at the muscle that runs 
from below your ear to your collar bone. When 
you turn your head to the side this muscle is 
pulled and stretched and becomes more promi- 
nent . If then returns the head back to its normal 
forward looking position * These ore the types 
of muscle you should pay dose attention to as 
they are visible and indicate a particular pose, 
if you take a look at the leg example in the 
screenshot you will see that the tea* ore pain- 
fed, Because of this the caff muscle becomes 
more prominent and because of the rigidity of 
the knee, so too does the thigh muscle and the 
muscles around the knee itself. This leg was 
jjuit port of o logo but if had to look real , and 



Mcrv can i «0 rh« leg iricfr (fra 
And cjfPt muscles fensetf. Tfra Jfcnat- la 
men ris ible as a re s ui t of tansing 


adding muscle and bone to convey an overall 
dynamic was imperative. If the muscle and 
bone had been incorrectly added the teg would 
have tost its identity and the complete image 
would have faffed* 

Obviously, another very important feature of 
bone ond muscle which should not be ignored 
is shadow. Under* to tiding the shape of bone 
and muscle is essential 1 if shadow is to be ren- 
dered accurately* However, cast shadow Invarh 
ably falls on other bones and muscles, so the 


Amiga Compu in 


process has a cause ond effect nature . fake the 
thigh for example* When the thigh muscle is 
tensed it causes a shadow to be cost on the 
inside of the leg- However, due to the oval 
shape of the teg the cast shadow is also pulled 
around and curved as a result* This con be 
clearly seen on the thigh muscle and the inside 
of the thigh. 

Understanding non-human anatomy is even 
more difficult Once again it all bails down to 
study and raking notes* There ore some very 
good books written by artists who have 
already done the hard work, so you can save 
yourself a lot at bother and time-consuming 
work by purchasing such a book* 

I hove found wildlife videos to be one of the 
best reference aids when drawing nan -hum on 
tifeforms. They invariably capture animals in 
their most characteristic poses and if you can 
recreate this in your Amiga paint package 
you re guaranteed success. 

It jf always the case that the artist who stud- 
ies produces the better war k. Try not to be put 
off by the complexities of anatomy , Only study 
what you feel is necessary and remember - 
your best reference is yourself. Don't feel stupid 
standing in front of o mirror and making notes 
- if if helps to improve your design skills it can 
only be a good thing.

Paul Overaa takes a 
look at a lesser 

i 

known application 
of the Midi 


sequencer. 






La 


music 



til 


k 








mw 


W hen ever Amiga Midi sequencers 
gre mentioned mo si people auto- 
matically think of music, keyboard 
s synthesisers, sound modules and so 

on. There ore, however, a number of other control 
applications that sequencers can be used for and 
one of these is lighting control. There ore a variety 
Qt tmis available that can be used far everything 
From department stone window iightirg displays to 
certain types of stage show, club arid disco/dance 
lighting applications. One benefit when you are 
already using sequencers for ploying music, of 
course, is that it allows the lighting conirol lo be 
synchronised to Midi sequencer music - you sim- 
ply add an additional lighting control track to your 
existing music sequences! 

One kght conlrol box that Is quite popular is 
called ihe Lite Show. It's aimed primarily at serni- 
pra use and provides eight 300 watt outputs 
which can be pragrammably switched and faded 
using Midi channel 16, The l He Show responds to 
three types of Midi message - Note on messages, 
program change commands and active sensing, 
ft's the note on messages that control the lights, 
with Midi: notes 60-67 electing the lighting chan- 
nel and the velocity byte of each message deter^ 
mming the brightness. Program change messages 
are used to switch between one of s65 pre-set 



FrpfiJ# Music's MPQ20 light c&ntroitar 

and 15 dynamically changing 'super scene 
settings. 

A slsghtly more sophisticated unit is the Profile 
MP820. This provides eight channels with a 
power rating of over 1000 watts per channel and 


Midi Line Drivers 


for some lighting applications if may be necessary 
fo use long Midi cable funs and for quite a few 
years now if has been possible to overcome fine 15 
metre Midi iisjnol cable length limif* fra fact a few 
years ago, the Philip Reef company pfodaced"a 
Mil? Midi Line 0 river iystem which not only over* 
came the 15m h'flift but hi Midi srgraofs he sent 
down cable* of up to a kilometre in length* The 
original MID sysfenr was unidirectional bat in 
some iissta/fcrtionf bidirectionoi Midi cammwrtita- 
Hon is required, and the latest units to help in fbii 
area also come from Philip Rees. 

Tbey^ce called MTR Midi line Transmitter 
/Receiver boxes and consist of a pair of units with 
the coble link between each unit being mode either 
with screened twisted pair cables or, as is more 
common in professional applications, by incorpo- 
rating the devices into path* that end up being 
sent dawn rmjJficore coble* 

With the MTR system only one unit is morns* 
power p d. This 'master transceiver' has power f 
Midi In, Midi Out and line Conner tori, plus an indi- 
cator LED to Jet you fcnaw that the unit is powered- 
up* The second, remote,, stave transceiver derives 
its power from the line itseff, so has only the Midi 
In, Midi Out and line connectors. With these units. 


cable runs of up to 1 J0m con be used and, 
because the MTR can work down mufticore, youfl 
often find these units installed in theatres to con- 
hoi lighting and trigger stage effects* There are, of 
course, plenty of other situations where the 
ability to get Midi data down long coble runs is 
equally important. In recording studios, particula- 
rly with remotely located control rooms, an 
MTR system can be part of the permanent 
installation. 

As well as the well known Midi gadget manu- 
facturers like J l Cooper f Midi Solutions, Philip 
Rees and so on, quite a few specialised companies 
have arrived ora the scene who are able to build 
customised Midi control units far professional 
users. Such companies can add things like wire* 
less-based and fibre optic-based Midi links to a 
Midi lighting system although, needless to say, the 
cost of these types of esoteric options fends la put 
them out of reach of the average Midi user. The 
fact remains, though, that where basic lighting 
control is concerned there are quite a few units 
that are affordable and , linked to an Amiga run- 
ning say Dr Fs (CCS or Micro Illusion 4 Music X, cart 
provide an extremely cast effective pathway into 
this areal 


both the Midi channel, and the range of notes lo 
which the unit respond*, are user selectable. The 
MPS2Q again u&es a note/ve lady based light con- 
trol scheme but in addition lo this, Midi continuous 
controller #P6 has been implemented to allow lode 
and delay characteristics to be thonged under 
Mdi control. For professional users. Profile Music 
also offer a cock mounted expansion unit which 
allows banks of MP320s to be linked together, 
providing up lo 2048 lighting channels (and 
potentially over 2 mega warts of lighting control!). 

Profile also alter a light unit from Ryger 
Electronic* called the M12 which, again, is Midi 
controlled and provides additional intelligence' 
functions. The same company also market 
Midi/DMX controllers and there ore even some 
Midi controlled laser product under development,

Got a digitiser that's 
collecting dust? 
Gary Whiteley 
has a few 
suggestions 





I f you're one of those people who bought them- 
selves- a video digitiser but gave up because you 
gol bored with grabbing chunks of your 
favourite video or TV pfcgramme, go and dig it 
out, Find the connecting leads and get it plugged into 
your Amigo because I'm going to run a few onimo 
lion ideas post you which might just grab your 
imagination. 

You’ll also need occess to o video camera jo cam- 
coder will do fine) and a Itrpod or copy sland/W 
Ff^m with a suitable camera mount, a couple of 
Anglepoise w similar lights, and a quiet dart corner 
where you can remain undisturbed for days on end, 
with □ table or other solid surface to support yaur 
work, $o much far the actual recording hardware 
and shooting location. 

Decisions 

Now come* the difficult decision of what so animate. 
Wellj you're hgrdly stuck far choice! Almost anything 
that you can fil in front of a camera con ce animated, 
but try to ovcnd children and animals as they tend to 
be unable to keep still for any tench of time, no ma^ 
ter how much you pfead with ihem. Instead, think 
about afl the possibilities offered by drawing or point- 
ing o series of different images on paper |o* even 
animation cel if you con |a] afford it and |b) you have 
□ suitable rostrum with peg-bar to keep the cris 'regis- 
tered' - i.e. fij<ed in the same place fror frame la 
frame). But why limit yourself to two-dimensional wort 
on paper or cel? Look around you and see what 



l/s*r etrthor ^

camera, qt one on 
a tripotf r The 
cJloici? is youFS 



Under fhe hat camera tight* yc *ur 
grapes canid men turn ittfo currants 


other possibilities present ihemsitvej. A good place 
to start is rn the kitchen where food iPems such as 
groins, nuts, beans and pasta shapes can be used to 
construe! pictures. Then consider toys, models, things 
mode from wire and plasticine,, cut-outs from maga- 
zines, and oilier objects which you con build youn 
self, Some af these things will make for 2D anima- 
tion, bul you con also do 3D work with many of 
them. Just let your imagination run wild For a change 


- bul avoid using objects which will quid*, y fo&e their 
shape, such as fresh plants and fruits, or melt or 
otherwise be affected by the hot (ighis shining an them.

Deceptively simple 


Animation is simply a sequence of stilt images 
which are played back fast enough to tool the ” 
eye and brain info thinking that fhe movement’ 
fhey contain is smooth and flawing, just like 
television and cinema; In the UK the playback 
rate is generally 25 frames per second for 
video and 24 for film, which equates fa 1500 
frames per minute for video and 1440 frames 
for film * Either wap, fhey're both frighteningly 
large numbers of frames to contemplate, 
especially if you re thinking of making a ten 
minute animation I 

fly? hang ant Most animators shoot every 
frame twice, making only 1 2.5 frames to the 
second, so your workload is immediately 
halved* Sometimes you can get away with 
even fess frames per second — even severer/ sec* 
ends of fhe same frame if the story caffe for if - 
so don't be scared off af fhe prospect of hard 
work just yet* 

To make animation with your digitiser you *11 
need a reasonable amount of computer 
memory and, preferably, a hard disk . ff you 


have neither af these , you should still be able 
fo fesf fhe water, but you II be much mare firm 
ifed in bath the resolution of the animation 
which you can produce and the speed and 
number of frames which your Amiga can play 
back. 

Start with a titffo planning - decide whaf you 
want to achieve and work towards if. Sef up 
your little animation studio , switch everything 
on f and white*balante the camera (read the 
in i fraction s if you don*t know how or whyj. 
Set up the first frame {image} af your anima- 
tion and make a test grab with your digitiser . 
Check fhe fightings colour and how the image 
is framed wifhin fhe screen. 

When you're happy fbaf off is haw you wish 
- taking into accoynf that the picture quality 
won't be so great unless you hove a 24 -bjf 
digitiser, plenty of memory and a hard disk - 
It s time to start animating, so open a new fife 
(or whatever your particular digitiser requires) 
and take a new grab of the first image. You 
only need to take one frame {not twoj as your 


Amiga can be made fa play the sequence back 
at half- speed (if you have animation -cap obfe 
point software such as DPaint or Brilliance or a 
program like View or other speed-controllable 
animation player software]* 

The next step is fa make a small adjustment 
to your animation jet, for instance by moving 
your model /s, replacing the original drawing 
with the next in the sequence, or by adding or 
subtracting something from the scene. 
Whatever you dc> keep the movements quite 
sirrah or fhe resulting motion wifi appear jerky 
when you ploy the animation back. Grab your 
second frame, make more adjustments, fake 
the third grab, and so on* 

fventuaffy {aver hours or even days), you 
will have bail? up a series of images which 
together comprise your animation. Phy them 
back as a sequence using your digitiser soft-

Paul Austin continues 
his tutorial on the 
do's and don'ts of 
basic space craft 
construction 



A fcr a fair amount of head scratching, sketch 
mg and second thoughts, regarding design 
and construction, 1 decided to opt for the 
simplest possibte starling point, and see how 
much could be squeezed out of il. 

As you've probably gathered, the storting point 
was q basic faceted cube, the idea being to demon- 
Sitrole haw quick and efficient building a respectable 
bit of cannon fodder con be. Needless to soy, the ship 
is meant to be □ bod guy, and as a result it pfagknv 
ses most af ihe classic iroits you J d associate with a 
bad guy, Down swept wing fronts, aggressive raked 1 
wing design and, most important of all, a general loo* 
and fed of something unpleasant from ihe real-world 
The beastie in question is a bat, but of course 
you've already sported thai hadn't you? Anyway, 
here's a step by step guide of transforming a box. into 
Q bod guy. 

Although there seems very little car relation between 
the first and the Iasi model, there's been little added or 
taken away. The only major changes Consist of mow 
ing and merging a Few points to create softer earners 
■ :ire ond there, ihe odd move,, scale and taper on 
setected point and polygons, plus one or two addifio 
nol dices to provide g few additional control points. 
Figure one and two cute simply progressions, with o 
few point merges os mentioned above. Figure three is 
obviously where most af the action takes place. 

However, after establishing a basic Form I was 
happy with, ond before progressing from two tD three, 

I decided to save myself a lot of extra wort by detet 
mg half ihe model. Now I know Ihot may sound like o 
very silFy thing to do, but once you've decided on a 
direction for any symmetrical model, them's very little 
point in plodding an ond being forced to measure or 
eyeball everything when the mirror command will do

1 m “ St /Vrfrtw point of the excise isn't to simply replicate the mad el I'm 
pu fing together. Ideally, you should be applying your own ideas using the basic 
principles outlined in this and the previous issue. 

You Should Stars out with a faceted cube to keep things simple, but go for your own 
Jeofc ond feel, Alt the bo sic principles should remain the some, ond although the 
shape may differ, the basics of adding detail and texturing the finished model will 
worft fust as weft on any model your imagination can come up with. 


experiment with the liner design paints. Needless to 
soy, once you're happy with the shape a simple mirror 
fa I 'owed by a merge command on the duplicated 
peinfc along the z axis completes ihe basic conslrudion 
stage. At this point yon con simply select the detail 
areas and add the finishing Touches, a prime example 
being the well area in ihe centre of the ship, which 
next month wifi hold some of Ihe all-important fine 
detail. 

As you've probably guessed, one of ihe prerequi- 
site! in the design spec is a fow polygon count 
However, i J you're planning lo see the ship clomp il's 
important there's some detail ta enhance the general 
look and break up the monotony of an essentially sym- 
metrical form. Just about! every decenl space ship ever 
madefied has liftte dusters of detail ond assorted 'sticky 
oul bits' here ond there, ond this one is nq exception. 

Luring next month s column I'll be running through 
the creation of whol Ran Thornton calls 'nurnies', which 
for the rest of us translates into innocuous detail thal 
does nothing — but looks like it should, In the case of 
my creation, th<s wdi translate into piping and mechoi> 
ics in the recess on (he top of the ship, plus assorted 
engine parts, the oil-important guns, and possibly even 
rhe add fuel pod here and there. 

However, before moving on to ihe finer points it's 
essential to take some time oul to define the basic 


surfaces before the overall structure becomes too cam 
pis* lo make selection and naming of surfaces simple 
Too be honesl ihis particular rule of thumb doesn't
