If you are having problems getting stock or perhaps feel disappointed that you opted for the A1200 before you knew about the new machine all is not lost. Check out the table on the right showing the A1200 fitted with the new M1230XA Microbotics accelerator available from Indi front AMIGA 4000-040 AMIGA 1200 With M1230XA ONLY £299.99 INDI DIRECT MAIL Proudly Presents THE JAKKI BRAMBLES COLUMN Hi, It certainly doesn't seem a month ago that I last wrote for Indi and what a month it has been.
With immaculate timing Commodore announced their superb Amiga CD, are Sega and Nintendo worried?
Interesting question, 32 bit technology, 16.8 million colours and the amazing AA chip set: what do you think?
But, more to the point, what does it mean to you if you currently own or were thinking of' buying an Amiga 600 or 1200. First of all let's be clear, you cannot use the Amiga CD as a computer until there is a keyboard and drive option (promised for 1994). So if you want to do any more than run CD software remember you will not have access to the vast range of floppy based software on Amiga nor the processing power that makes the Amiga so rewarding if you want to do more than games play.
So what does this mean to the current Amigas? To make it simple; the Amiga 600 is a cheap entry• level system perfect for the first time user or those working to a budget. The Amiga 1200 is the elite system for the dedicated user who wants to access the speed and performaitce of this mid range system; you can upgrade later via an external CD solution promised to be hot on the heels of the Amiga CD.
The Amiga CD should be available to dedicated games players in August. Phone INDI to check for pricing and availability; and don't be confused, both the Amiga 600 and 1200 are around for some time. In fact Indi have already finalised their plans for Christmas!
Mail order purchasing can be worrying, sending your hard earned cash to a company that may be hundreds of miles away, will your dream machine atrive as promised and what do you do if it doesn't?
Indi is part of a veryt large company with their own in-house experts and systems and yet it still sometimes goes wrong. At Indi they have a Customer Care department who do nothing else but problem solve. So if Securicor couldn't find your house but will re-deliver tomorrow, or you cannot load a disk, they are there to help.
But what if the problem needs a fresh pair of eyes, perhaps you feel that you have been unsympathetically or unfairly treated?
Performance Comparison I was delighted to learn that Indi take their responsibilities so seriously that they have joined the DMA.
The Direct Marketing Association is a very serious organisation (recognised by’ the Advertising Standards Association and other such official bodies).
Getting accepted is difficult, staying in required Indi to set and achieve real customer satisfaction and solve problems quickly if they occur.
I sincerely hope that all Mail Order Companies will follow Indi and display the DMA symbol on their advertising. If they don't you should ask them why [}tkk DEFERRED CREDIT ON ALL ORDERS OVER £200.

WHY NOT RING FOR A QUOTE. SAMEDAY RESPONSE. (SEE EXAMPLE) Panasonic Quiet Colour Printing We researched the colour printer market at great depth to tind a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful graphic output, yet at an affordable price.
We found the perfect prints in the KX-P218Q ? KX-P2123 quiet printers.
We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer you would probably need a quality word processing package to use with it We found that too. With' Wordwonh'. Yet at a retail price of £129.99 we thought that might be a little too expensive on top of your printer purchase' So together with Panasonic we decided to give a copy of 'Wordworth' free with every Panasonic printer. How's that for added value?

The Wft- ------ We'd simply call it the best Amiga Word Processor. But if after using it. The experts insist on calling Final Copy II the best Word Publisher as well, we're not complaining!
Word Publishers go beyond simply producing normal letters and documents (at which Final Cop)1 II naturally excels) and progress into a world where how the whole document looks is just as important as wluti it soys. Admittedly, this can be achieved with Desk Top Publishers, but they can't easily be used as Word Processors, especially when a good looking letter needs creating quickly - they're fir too cumbersome. This is where Final Copy II offers the perfect halance between the two requirements. Ease and speed of use. Combined with complete control and petted final printed presentation.

Final Copy II can use thousands of superior Adobe Type I or Nimbus Q fonts (the same as those used on professional publishing systems). Both these types an: PostScript fonts, but unlike all other Word Processors you don't need an expensive PostScript laser to use them! Final Copy II will pnm them on PostScript lasers, or any graphics capable printer. This includes the dotmatrix or ink-jet you probably already own. Even if you haw your own Compugrjphic* font library _you'd still

In some of the latest stories, the media have highlighted the reality of horrific graphics contained in a recently-released omsolegame ELSPA (European Leisure Software Publishers' Association), the trade body representing 98 per cent of games developers, have drafted a Code of Practice for their members to follow.
Under the Code, CD-based software which has been produced from film will be Mibmitted to bodies such as the British Board of Film Censors for classification.
Year. "The video industry had legislation imposed on it,” said ELSPA's Roger Bennett. "We want to avoid that situation.
"Our aim is to make games legal, responsible and for publishers to pursue activities that are socially acceptable. Most of our members are in favour of the action planned."
Ratings given to the software will be displayed on packaging and allow parents to easily identify games which contain material that might be unsuitable for their children V orejfl DEBS 5842 »n«) ire «8uo | cr&roo | taltng* LIS “ ¦ Dft | ) Some of the first affected could be those lor Commodore's new CD Amiga system, which the firm has now confirmed is due ?• a summer launch. Industry bosses fear CBM bring Amiga price inside £200 ENTRY-level Amiga prices have been slashed, bringing the computer' s recommended retail price inside £200 for the first time.
All machines and bundles in the A600 range see the cuts, which are aimed at increasing the price gap between the entry machines and the superior A1200.
The standalone computer has been given a £50 cut, picking up a new price tag of £199.99. The Wild, Weird and Wicked and Epic pads now cost £229.99 and 049.99 respectively.
Efcalers are expected to add their own discounts. Indi Direct Mail were one of the first to announce details, with their standalone A600 awtmg £189.99. “Wc had expected to get down to this price by Christmas but this is a real bonus," said Indi boss Craig Saddington.
"There is now a real price difference between the A6U0 and A1200 - it must be the best value computer on the market."
The ST pack includes a small selection of leisure software but the computer is difficult to upgrade and is not supported by many games developers.

Thai would mean all programs including those with lower graphical standards on floppy disk would be tested, costing the games industry millions of pounds each Call for Amiga PD A ROMANIAN engineer has just set up an enthusiasts club with the aim of helping the few Amiga users in his country to get the most from their hobby.
The man behind Amiga-Club, Bitca Bogdan, says Romania's low salaries
- he earns just £40 a month - make computing expensive, with many
products keeping their Western prices.
But Bitca says his Bucharest-based club, running A500 and A1000S. Has found Amiga Computing’s editorial pages a helpful source of information and its CoverDisks invaluable.
And now he is looking to the West for help, especially in building a collection of public domain software which can be distributed freely among his small club.
"Unfortunately in our country there isn't a shop with magazines, software and hardware for the Amiga.' He said.
“Amiga-Club Romania is a nonprofit organisation whose purpose is to popularise Amiga computers in Romania.
' Our need is disks - either public domain or those from the covers of magazines. They will help us be successful in our activity."
If you would like to join Amiga-Club.

¦ NEWS News Briefs ing a computer game, for which Chrystal Haze Graphics designed a suitable animation. "Our prime objective was to emulate a game, so there was no call for advanced 3D modelling techniques because this would stray from a child's perception of a computer game ' said Simon.
"The key to the success of the design was that it had to be convincing to the viewer and yet still appeal to children.
The designers were already familiar with the Amiga. For over a year they have been trying to provide a lOW-COSt computer graphics service, "We chose the Amiga computer because it was a stable basis for producing a high standard of graphic images while maintaining a relatively low level of financial support," said Simon.
"When Commodore released the AGA chip set we decided to incorporate the new system into our design criteria.
"It provides an ideal stop gap for testing animations and still before going into the process of final design or into the process of printing."
Kiddies CD book ALISTAIR in Outer Space is an interactive story book which has been developed for CD Amigas by Bedford-based Altered Images (0234 340722).
It features 26 animated page, an illustrated index and a selection of games. The package costs £24.99 and is aimed at children aged between five and nine years old.
Amiga plant sale denied RUMOURS that Commodore have put their Amiga development plant at West Chester, Pennsylvania up for sale have been denied by the firm's UK boss David Pleasance.
The firm own two buildings in the same area, one of which has been used for C64 manufacturing. It would now make sense to put both opera tons under one roof, he said.
Scanning costs are down LADBROKE Computing (0772 203166) have cut the price of the Golden Image Hand Scanner with programs Touch Up and Deluxe Paint 3 to £89.99. Piracy arrest A 19-year-old Amiga user was arrested in Hertfordshire recently after police seized games that have not even been released in Britain.
It is alleged that the man pirated the software and then sold it to other gamers through bulletin boards. The Federation Against Software Theft joined the police in the operation.
One meg for £30 UPGRADE manufacturer Amitek have announced the immediate availability of a 1Mb memory upgrade for the A500P costing £30.
"The new RAM board is aimed at the first time user," said spokesman Andy Leaning. "It's low cost, easy to fit, doesn't void the computer's warranty and comes in a colourful case."
It is available through several Amiga dealers including Silica Systems, who can be telephoned on 081-3091111.

V-Lab Y-C is the third version of the package and is now compatible with composite and Y-C video recorders Interleave frame grabbing software is also supplied.
Its most impressive feature enables the hardware to grab consecutive video frames directly to hard disk by making multiple passes over the film.
The operation is repeated until a 25 frames per second sequence has been generated. A maximum of 200 frames - about ten seconds worth of video - is accepted.
Martin Lowe from distributor Amiga Centre Scotland (0896 87583) claimed the system is ideal for home users, video users and CD-ROM developers who need to store video images.
Priced at £381.88. users who want to leave the system unattended can buy an infra red video deck controller as an optional extra. The controller’s price remains to be fixed. V Lab r C: ComPatlblr with more vc,ts Multimedia updates for video board GREAT Valley Products (010 1 215 337 8770) have upgraded multimedia video board IV24 to give the pack's software a range of new features and improvements.
MacroPaint 2 is a real-time, 16 million colour paint package featuring a toolbox-style interface that can be moved to a more convenient part of the screen. It can load and save JPEG compressed files and painting can be done on a 24-bit image while work is viewed at between 12 and 21 bits for extra speed and lower memory needs.
A newly-designed custom version of Caligari24 gives renderers a line-up of extras, including an unlimited number of light sources and better animation functions.
MyLad enables video productions to be enhanced with creative transitions while Desktop Darkroom offers image capture, retouching and a range of special effects for image manipulation.
GVFs Bill Prescott: "With the addition of this software upgrade, IV24 represents an opportunity for professionals to optimise their creative potential and productivity."
British distributor Silica Systems (081-309 1111) are Selling upgrade packs for £99.

NEWS Top secret work exposed!
What's new COMMODORE are working on a project so secret that they've only told a tew select developers about it.
At the World of Commodore Show in New York, Commodore’s Lew Eggebrecht said that some projects, such as networking, were currently on hold due to another urgent project. This reporter has done some snooping and discovered exactly what.
Code-named AmigaCD 32, this hot new hardware unit combines the basic circuitry of an Amiga 1200 (the AGA chipset and the EC020 processor) with a top-loading CD- ROM drive, similar to that found on the Sega MegaCD.
How can Commodore hope to take on CD-ROM giants like Sega and the coming Nintendo and 3DO CD-ROM units? By using an old sales tactic they dug out of their early 1980s archives - selling hot equipment at a low price, An anonymous games house reports that Commodore told them that AmigaCD 32 is slated to sell at onlv $ 299 (£199) com- Denny Atkin with the latest news from the other side of The Pond plete. This puts it about $ 100 (£67) less than a Sega Genesis (the US version of the Mega Drive) with the CD-ROM attachment, and at less than half the price of 3DO.
So is this just CDTV with A1200 guts?
Nope. My informants tell me that AmigaCD 32 doesn't have all the com- puter-like expansion ports found CDTV, and it looks more like a games sole than a VCR.
This doesn't mean it can't be turned into an Amiga - Commodore are ah developing an expansion unit that w allow standard computer peripherals to be attached.
Will this be the machine that puts Commodore back on the top? Even the developers I talked to who are actually doing titles for it aren't brimming with optimism.
Although the hardware is quite capable and the price is low, it's software that sells the consoles, and most companies seem to be targeting sure bets like Sega for their CD titles.
1 con-1 THE ANNUAL World of Commodore Amiga show, held April 2-4 at the New York Passenger Ship Terminal in Manhattan, was a treat for A1200 owners looking to add a bit more power to their hot new machines. Those who went seeking software, though, left largely disappointed.
Powering up Although there were 33 exhibitors at the show, many of those were dealers, magazines, and purveyors of public domain software. Among the more well-known developers who did attend were Centaur Development, DKB Software, Gold Disk, GVP, 1CD, Microdeal, Migraph, Moonlighter, NewTek (in the guide of Video Toaster Magazine), SCALA, Soft-Logik, and Utilities Unlimited.
Commodore's booth was consistently crowded, especially around the Amiga 4000T, which was shown to the North American public for the first time at the show.
The A4000T ("T" is said to stand for "floor sTanding unit," rather than "Tower," due to NCR's ownership of the latter word) sports five Zorro III 32-bit expansion slots, four IBM AT slots, six drive bays, both IDE and SCSI-2 on the motherboard, and - of particular interest to video nuts
- dual video slots.
FUTURISTIC-LOOKING The case is the slickest ever to come from the big C, with a futuristic-looking smoked-plastic curved door covering the drive bays. The A4000T is still a couple of months away from shipping, and promises to be a premium-priced product, not one for the Zool crowd.
Lew Eggebrecht, an information-seeking journalist's dream, once again spilled the beans about Commodore's development plans.
You've read about the high and low-end 24-bit chipsets in previous columns (see the April issue of AC); the only news there was that the low-end chip set will have support for adding a 16-bit stereo DAC for improved sound, and that the target date for the high- end chipset, which ships first, has slipped to mid-1994.
Commodore's upcoming DSP chip has found a new home on a Zorro III card- The original plan had been to place the chip on the 68040 CPU card, but Commodore realised they could double the performance of the AT&T DSP 32010 chip if they placed it on an expansion card with its own RAM.
This also allows them to run the card at 66MHz, instead of "only" 50MHz. The board will ship with its own multitasking operating system based on the AT&T VCOS software.
Initial software will enable use of the board for real-time sound processing, and libraries to use it as a V32bis modem, JPEG image decoder and encoder, and MPEG audio decoder and encoder are in the works as well.
This board won't be cheap, but comparing its capabilities to those of the basic Motorola DSP in the Atari Falcon is like comparing a 33MHz 68040 to the 1MHz 6502 found in the CM- Eggebrecht also said that CD-ROM drives for the rest of the Amiga line were a top priority right now. The drives will be doublespeed mechanisms and will support multi- session discs (useful for Kodak's Photo-CD), and will include custom microcode to speed access dramatically, Eggebrecht said drives will be available for all Amigas, with the probable exception of the A6Q0, since the A600 doesn't have the needed DMA
access.
Perhaps the most intriguing hint of the Amiga's future, though, came from Commodore US president Jim Dionne.
When asked during a question-and-answer session why Commodore hasn't been able to repeat the success of the C64 in the US market, Dionne hinted that Commodore would be making a major push for the consumer market this fall with a new machine that could be the next Commodore 64. He emphatically stated that this would not be the A600 - it's more likely to be the AmigaCD 32 mentioned above.
Will it be the next C64? Commodore has already lost the support of virtually all the US games developers. And a company that would sell sushi as "Commodore's Cold, Raw, Dead Fish!" Is trying to go up against Nintendo and Sega in a marketing war? 1 don't think so. Is this the MGS all over again?

order and high street dealers alike begin at last to ship the A1200HD in quantity, bitter feelings and cries of anger linger on over the way in which the machine's parent company finally staggered into the hard drive market.
The seeds of the furore were sewn last year when, to the stupefaction of those present. Commodore launched the A1200 in only one flavour - without a hard drive.
Most observers scratched their heads and wondered whether an external hard drive connecting through the PCMCIA slot was to bo announced shortly, but this did not happen and the internal expansion route became the only option for the Storage hungry user.
A4000 or A600 hard drive software. There were soon as many hard drive solutions as there were dealers, and the poor punter, to judge from letters we received during the worst period, simply didn't know what was going on.
Commodore seem set to release a CD-based AGA machine, but given their record on hard drives, Commodore's answer was to close down their technical support division, admit in secret that they hadn't the facilities to put together their own A1200HD, and throw the hot potato to trade distributor ZCL Should WG hold our The deal struck between ZCL and Wang at last made the A1200HD a reality, but by this time a huge number of bf*Cclth for th6 floppy-only machines had been sold and their owners were no better off.
As no moves have been made to provide an official upgrade path for existing owners wishing to fit hard drives, and as Commodore continue to ignore the calls from mail order dealers to at least release the official formatting software, users who buy an A1200 with the aim of upgrading it at a later date will find themselves as frustrated as those early owners.
Given the easv availability of 2.5in IDE drives, it seemed that the damage could be limited. What rapidly became clear, however, was that although the hardware was easy to come by, Commodore themselves were making the ambitious owner’s life a misery by supplying A1200s with five Workbench 3.0 disks as opposed to six.
Compact disc?
The missing disk? Why, the installation disk, of course, containing the hard drive tool kit and other essential hard drive utilities. Without this disk, A1200 owners might buy their own drives, but fit them thev could not.
Older PCMCIA What about PCMCIA? Many have pointed to the slot as a potential interface for everything from fax modems to electric toothbrushes, but most have neglected to mention that the slot fitted to the A1200 is an older revision of the Standard than that currently being worked on by the PCMCIA market as a whole.
In other words, the vast majority of manufacturers developing on the standard are in all probability developing devices which will not work on the older A1200 PCMCIA slots.
If Commodore, in their wisdom, are unwilling to make a shout about this discrepancy between marketing claim and fact, Amiga Computing is not.
The complete lack of PCMCIA expansion options, the late arrival of the official A1200HD, the missing sixth disk, and the company’s refusal to allow third parties to use Commodore software when selling their own hard drive kits adds up to a monumental mess in which only the end user has lost out.
With the demise of CDTV, the Amiga 600's death by AGA, and the rumours concerning CD-based Amigas, AAA chipsets, and so on, the last thing we need at the moment is for a lack of development to stifle the A1200 market.
The machine makes for easily the best value-for-money micro ever released, a fact which alone will keep sales healthy all this year, but if users begin to suspect that Commodore are unable to support their product or are intent on replacing it within the year, confidence in the 32-bit revolution may begin to slip.
Magazines, assuming that the A1200 would be supplied with the same Workbench set as included with the A4000, wrongly reassured their readers that thev would be able to buy a drive and cable then fit it at home, thus raising more doomed expectations.
Flies in a cesspit Bewildered (and rather annoved) customers tried everything from the A600HD install disk to a variety of shareware utilities, and confusion multiplied like flies in a cesspit.
Commodore, fiddling merrily as the blaze developed around them, played dumb, and restricted themselves to a few- statements about the naughtiness of copying disks distributed with other Amigas.
Mr%-r * Why the decision was taken to omit that vital sixth disk from the A1200 Workbench 3.0 set will probably remain a mystery. Commodore were never very good at discussing their motives, and the MD at the time of the A1200 launch, Kelly Sumner, has since left the company.
What is clear, however, is that the decision left a gaping hole in the market ripe for both exploitation and the confusion we rapidly saw developing.
Smaller dealers, especially those in the mail order industry, took the opportunity to buy in cheap IDE drives and fit them themselves, but again they ran into the brick wall of Commodore's reluctance to give permission for dealers to supply The AC team EDITOft Scevte Kennedy ASSOCIATE EDITOR PmlAutton ART EDITORS TymUdcy Terry Thiele NEWS EDITOR John Buttm PRODUCTION EDITOR Phi Hone STAFF WRITERS Jonathon Haddock Ben Stylei ADVERTISING MANAGER SueHonefetd AD SALES Andy Sempton AD PRODUCTION Barbara NeweH MARKETING ASSISTANT LucyOfcw PRODUCTION MANAGER Sandra Childs SYSTEM?

first of Acs three-part B&PJr tutorials, it's worth
spending a little time exploring the interface and
installation of the software. Hard disk users will be
happy to know that installing the program is simply a
matter of dragging the B&PJr drawer onto the hard disk
partition.
Assuming hard disk users have done what they must, the inevitable double click on the B&PJr icon will reveal the three basic elements of the interface, namely the track window’, transport control and window selection icons. On certain systems loading may take a while but be patient - it's well worth the wait!
Icon start
F. xploring the icons is probably the best place to start - so
simply move through the various icons clicking and closing
them in turn. After a couple clicks you'll notice that some of
the advanced options have been removed.
Obviously it wouldn't be good business on the part of Blue Ribbon to hand over the entire package, and it's here where AC's amazing upgrade offer begins to show its worth.
Although a fair selection of windows are inactive, B&PJr still offers incredible power and a real taste of the potential within B&PPro2. We'll cover the various options as and when required but for now Amiga Computing brings you Bars&Pipes Jr, the most powerful musical giveaway in magazine history - an eight-track sequencer with powerful editing, Midi and internal sound support, and full save we'll turn our attentions to transport control.
As you may have already noticed the transport controls - like the larger track window1 - can be closed down and returned to their icons just like all the program's windows.
However, assuming transport control is still active you'll see a selection of tape deck controls, the present tempo setting, a song position counter plus an The best sequencer bar none blue square or alternatively click on the square and triangle combination button to jump the sequencer back to the beginning without terminating playback.
Assortment of flag icons and special features.
In subsequent support columns we'll look at all the advanced features but for now we’ll stick to the basics. Although the sequencer is empty we can still experiment with the controls. Click on the play button and you should see the song position marker begin to move within the track w'indow, To stop playback, simply click on the If you choose the stop option you can still move back and forth through the sequencer with the fast-forward and rewind arrows. To adjust the tempo simply click above or below each figure using multiple clicks or a sustained hold and the tempo should We'll look at
editing in detail over the coming issues but for now here's a brief taste of the power on offer. Assuming some changes are required to the performance. Double-click on the sequence window to reveal the track in close-up.
Now CtiCk on the various icons listed below depending on you requirements: Focus on the edit Iff HI | Step time - odd new notes according to pre set note length and volume settings. If used with Internal sounds the Spare keys requester must be octtve.
Ihe the space bar to add rests, and backspace to delete unwanted events Amiga Computing July 1993 24 remember you need both Midi-in and out connections. Although B&PJr is primarily a Midi sequencer, it still allows access to the internal talents of the Amiga with notes input via mouse or keyboard.
Before the guided tour to internal sound set-up, it's essential that readers running a 1Mb system should read the instructions detailed in the box labelled Attention 1Mb owners.
By far the easiest way to leam is to load the demo.song Supplied on theCoverDisk.
To access the aforementioned demo, move to the song pull-down and select load - a prompt will ask whether to save before dosing - click on the NO.
A new requester will then pop-up showing the available volumes. Select the CoverDisk and list the contents of the Bars & Pipes-Jr drawer - at which point select and load the Demo file.
Once safely installed you'll see the basic set-up required for playback and recording. However before a close inspection, hit the play button and give it a listen. When you've become thoroughly bored, click on the stop button and we'll look at what makes the pro- Recording a classic should appear just after the track name. Now move to the trans* port control and dick on the record button. The sequencer is now set to record and if you click on the play button recording will begin.
All that remains is to hit the button, play your masterpiece, and press stop. When recording is complete the sequencer automatically de-selects the record button in the transport control as a safeguard - this must be active in addition to the record or merge options on the target track before you can record anything.
If you want to re-record the sequence, simply rewind the sequencer, reselect the record option in the transport and press play - this will automatically overwnte the original.
If however you wish to combine the o*d with the new, toggle the record, merge, and play button on the target track until it shows a red M, activate the record button within the transport and press play. Any new notes will then be combined with the old.

pipe and the end of the output.
By default B&l’Jr loads up with Midi-in and out tools already in place - very handy.
For those with a suitable Midi interface and a Midi compatible sound source all that remains is to click on the small grey box just after the track name - a red arrow will appear inside the box and the sequence window will become active.
Sound checks Now move to the output on the output pipe and select one of the 16 available Midi channels by clicking on the channel icon - a pop-up requester will appear allowing you to make the appropriate channel selection, If you select a voice for the appropriate channel on your synth or module you should be able to play some notes and hear the results - assuming you have some form of amplification of course.
If after the aforementioned procedure there's still no sound, check the leads between the Amiga and your instrument - reflect any tempo changes you make.
A particularly useful addition just below the tempo control allows instant half and three-quarter speed playback and recording.
Rather than having to adjust the tempo to play a tricky section cor* rectly, clicking on either option to temporarily slow the sequencer when necessary.
Moving on to the track window we finally arrive at the heart of the sequencer offering eight tracks complete with the pipes that give the sequencer its name.
Although rather unassuming, the plumbing either side of the sequence window sandwich is absolutely essential to the program allowing the addition of various tools which can perform everything from simple I O operations to special effects.
In order to get any sound from the sequencer the first task is to place suitable t r VI IbSUMHBEBEI i ¥ Atention 1Mb owners Prior to loading the B&PJr demo song on a 1Mb system the following procedure must be carried out: 1, Type ENDCU into the CU window and hit Return 2, Load B&PJr and select the memory savers option from the preferences pull-down menu.

I - Used to define note ' reimtiv* bar position gram's internal sounds tick. As you can see. All that's required to turn Midi notation into internal sound is an AMIGAPhone tool placed at the end of the appropriate track.
Like most tools the AMIGAPhone icon can be opened with a double click revealing the set-up for that particular tool. For the moment leave the various parameters as they are and close the requester.
Obviously the AMIGAPhone tool only supplies the sample and its parameters - the question is how to get the note information into the sequencer. The answer is the Spare-keys tool which can be found in the tool box or more easily as the input tool on track 8 in the demo. If you select that track by clicking Amiga Diary Author: Andrew K Pearson Amiga Diary is one of those desktop utilities so often found in the public domain and so often left out of the average owner's PD collection because most of us don't realise just how useful they can be.
Rather than offer an alarm function for events which occur during a single day, Amiga Diary is designed to keep track of events and appointments over the course of a few weeks, months, or even years.
It features a page flicking system to simulate a real paper diary and has a quick 1ook*up‘ function for jumping to any day required.
Each day can have as many pages as required for its diary entnes, which means that the user need never type an entry in shod form as is so often the case with diary programs. If this isn't enough for all information, the scnbble function will enable the jotting down of notes Most programs of this type allow just a single line of text for each entry with little or (usually) no explanatory information to remind the user about the appointment or event.
Amiga Diary will succeed where others fail simply because it offers much the same ease of use as a normal diary without forcing the user to stick to cryptic little notes.
On the button directly after the track name, a small red arrow will appear. Now double click on the Spare-keys tixil and a miniature keyboard will pop up.
If you click on the keys the sample assigned to that particular track will sound.
Rows on the Amiga keyboard. You should hear the sample play and see the notes light up on Spare-key requester - to move through the available octaves simply click and drag the octave bar beneath the miniature keyboard.
To try a different track simply click on the original Spare keys icon and drag it to the track of your choice. Click on the input button - the red arrow will move to new track. Now double click on the Spare keys tool to open the requester. You should now be able to play notes as before.
Although useful on occasion, it’s the Amiga keyboard option offered by the Spare-key tool that really makes internal sounds a viable option. Assuming the Spare-key requester is still active, try tapping in a few notes on the bottom two Expload file on disk Last month's disk was meant t include the file Expload in its C directory, but due to an attack c intense moronic dullardness o the part of the person responsib for this simple task, It did nc appear.

Cavendish Courtyard. Sallow Road. Weldon North Idustrial Estate, Corby. NorthantsNN171JX Quoter Author: Ben Merrifield Quoter is an amusing program Qf the fortune cookie type which, every time it is run, provides a quote for the day. This can be either a general truism, such as Sod's Law, or a
quote taken from a famous personality, such as Winston Churchill or Groucho Marx.
Most titillating of all are those which have been added down the years by wits in offices and workplaces around the world, my own favourite being: “When the plane you are on is late, the plane you are transferring to is on time." (anon).
The CoverDisk contains not only the Quoter program, but also a sizeable file of ready-made quotes which can be added to using a standard text editor or a wordpro- cessor. This file, called Quotes.Dat, can be found in the CoverDisk's S: directory, and lor the program to work on another disk must be transferred across.
In other words, if you have a hard drive called Workbench:, you would boot from the hard drive, insert the CoverDisk, and drag the Quoter drawer across, then open a Shell and type: COPT *C«;i W0T£$ .W TO S: Users of floppy drives can do the same to put Quoter on another disk, with the one difference that they might have to delete a few files first.
Quoter also requires the Hisoftbasic.library, which can be found in the CoverDisk Libs drawer. To copy this to your regular system disk, type the command: COPT AC6?:LlBS Htf0fT6«IC.l!8lt*iy TO UBS: The program should now function perfectly.
Readers who have access to a book of quotations or who find their favourite isn't in the data file can add their own and have the Quoter run on every boot-up. To do this, edit your startup-sequence and add the line: RUN RlL: N1L: [DI13 8U0TEI where [DIR] is the name of the directory into which you have copied the program. It really can brighten up a boot-up.
PrintManager vl.1 Author: Nicola Salmoria Pnnt spoolers are utilities which the non-pnnter owning public will take one look at and ignore. The rest of us. However, will recognise them as one of the most useful and time-saving utilities ever devised.
When a program prints to any printer, be it a slow or fairty fast model, the output is passed to the print buffer which, if available, is normally a few kilobytes of RAM - hardly enough for a page of text.
When a DTP layout is printed, the resulting reduction in speed while the program waits for the printer fo complete the page can be excruciating The result is a loss of productivity and. If using a very slow printer, sanity.
PnntManager is a priceless utility for Kickstart 2.0 and above which intercepts all print jobs sent to the printer ports, no matter which program originates them, and spools them to a waiting queue of pnnt jobs.
Depending on the user's preferences, the directory to which the print jobs are spooled can be either a floppy, a hard drive, or the RAM disk. A tool type found on the PnntManager icon can be altered to suit any system, so if the user has a hard drive but not much memory, spooling to disk is the obvious and easy choice.
A graphical interface controls all organisation of jobs, enabling the pausing and rearranging of the queue, and as PnntManager runs like a Commodity, it can be hidden and controlled using Exchange.

You might at some point want to copy a single program from a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or even your hard drive.
To do this you'll need the COPY command. As most CoverDisk programs are stashed away in their own direc- tones, the quickest way to copy a program is to Copy the whole directory at once. Use the command; COPT directory) TO (nevdisk) ALL where (directory) is the full pathname of the directory you wish to copy, and (newdisk) is the name of the disk and directory into which it will be copied.
For example, if you wanted to copy a utility called FRED from CoverDisk 27's Utilities drawer to a directory called FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: COPT C0VER8ISK27tUTILITIES FRES TO V0RKBEHCH1.3 FRED ALL Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory
• con and drag it across to the new disk's window. This has the
advantage of creating a new directory for you and copying the
icon as well.
Once you have moved a particular program to where you require it you could expenence some problems running the program. This is sometimes caused by the program not being able to find files which it needs to run.
A good example is the text files on the CoverDisk.
These have been crunched using PowerPacker, so when you try to copy them to another disk and then try to read them you can't unless you have also copied the Powerpacker library into your LIBS drawer.
To copy the entire CoverDisk, load up your Workbench tfck. Then either click once on the CoverDisk icon and select Duplicate, or select Copy from the Workbench menu, or open CU Shell and type: I1SKC0PT fIM |F0; TO »F0: prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source disk) in dK): and be ready to replace it with your blank disk (the destination disk). Follow the Amiga's on-screen prompts witil the disk copy is completed. Now put the original iwiy in a safe place and use your backup.
De-archiving Occasionally we have so many programs to fit onto the CoverDisk that we have to archive them. Archiving is where we take the entire contents of a disk and compress them into one file which is much smaller, giving us space to fit more programs onto the disk.
Dearchiving programs which are on the CoverDisk is a very simple task. If a program has been archived then you will need a blank disk to dearchive it onto.
Say we have archived a program called FRED. You simply double click on FRED'S icon, and will be asked if you have a blank disk ready to dearchive to. Type "y" or “n" accordingly.
Your computer will then copy the archived file into its memory and ask you to insert your blank disk. It will proceed to format the disk, and will then de-crunch the archived file onto your blank disk.
Once this has been done you can simply reboot your machine with the disk which contains the dearchived program on it and then use the program as instructed in the CoverDisk pages.
Note that if you have a Workbench 2 or upward machine you must boot with the CoverDisk write- enabled to perform the dearchiving process.
Workbench 3 If you have a Workbench 3 machine, don't worry - most if not all of the programs on the CoverDisk will work on your machines.
If the program is specifically designed to work with Workbench 3 then you may have to copy the program to your hard drive or Workbench disk using the process described earlier on this page.

Tel: (0604) 790466 Fax: (0604) 647403 nmm THE GENLOCK PEOPLE Do you want to overlay computer graphics or titles onto your videos? If so, you will need a Genlock.
Rendale Genlocks are built to a very high standard, and are used widely in the professional environment.
The Rendale range of Amiga Genlocks begins with the 8802. This is a Genlock, which, when attached to an Amiga computer and a suitable video system, will allow you to mix video and computer graphics. It offers all the functions that you need, such as: RlNDALi 8802 £139-
* RGB feed through, allowing for a preview monitor,
* High quality output video, which in default mode provides video
with overlaid computer graphics.
| n A I S 11 can be supplied with a device which will allow you to fade between computer graphics and the video source, and also a mode control unit so that ¦VOS ?jvjJ [j you can move between Amiga only, video only, background mode and €178 - keyhole modes 1 & 2.
The Rendale Super-8802 is a development of the basic 8802 unit, it performs the same functions, but has the added capability of also working with Super- VHS signals. The unit will allow the user to cross fade between the Amiga and video signal. In addition, some basic wipe patterns are provided, and also a fade to black option. Mode control is also provided via hardware.
RENDALE £499- 8802 FMC Unit NSW!
RENDALE FMG £45-fitted This is a brand new piece of kit which will improve the capabilities of the popular Rendale 8802 Genlock. This unit allows you to cross fade between the Amiga and video signals, so that you can gently fade computer titles in and out. Also, the ability to switch between the various modes offered by the 8802 is provided. The required mode is selected by a push switch, giving smooth, flicker free transformations.
The FMC unit does need to be soldered into the 8802, we can do this at our factory if required.
UPGRADE PATHS 8802 UPGRADES £45- £400- Rendale Genlocks are designed to be flexible, and the ability of your Genlock to grow with your system was deemed to be of paramount importance in our design process.
As a consequence, existing 8802 users can follow one of two upgrade paths.
The fade and mode control unit (FMC unit) can be purchased independently, and fitted to your 8802 genlock by our engineer. We would only require your unit for around two days.
The other upgrade path is the move from a purely composite 8802 to the Super-8802. This can also be done simply, although we do have to perform the upgrade work at our factory. We would only require your unit for around two days.

Fowshc' s so famous, composers are actually writing
• especially for her, like Dominic Muldowney, John Aararth, John
McLeod, and Richard Rodney Bennett.
NUv if she hasn't worked with them, who are they?
Evelyn is a slight, soft spoken woman who laughs readily and pays close attention when other people are speaking, and although slightly reticent to talk about herself, is very enthusiastic about her work and music in general I asked her how this fame affects her. Does she mind being so famous?
"When 1 decided to become a musician 1 hadn't thought about becoming famous, and that's still the case- I’m just interested in my work and doing the best I can, and I don't want extra pressures.
"All my aims are personal ones. If 1 reach them, fine, if 1 don't, that's also fine. If I decide to give up music tomorrow I don't want the whole world coming down on me.
“It's good for percussion that there is the recognition. If there's any recognition of what I do then 1 see it going towards percussion. A lot has to be done for solo percussionists, that's my area if you like."
Does she want to expand the number of styles she performs in or does she want to stick with the classical style?
"I'm very interested in spreading mv wings a lot more and working with all sorts of musicians. Still keep the solo percussion side going, that's my main thing, live performances.
But the compositions and things is something I want to explore too."
As a percussionist, and a particularly well travelled one, Evelyn has more in common with so-called world musi- dans than a lot of Western musicians who try and fail to meld the many styles from around the world.
"When people ask me 'what sort of musician are you?'
In a taxi or something, I'll say percussion and they'll say 'oh, which group do you play in?'
"I'm not a classical musician, I'm not a jazz musician, I'm just a musician. I’m interested in all styles of music."
People, especially people who work for newspapers, love to categorise, and Evelyn defies categorisation.
Writers tend to latch on to the fact that despite being in an almost exclusively hearing profession, Evelyn is in fact profoundly deaf. Does this annoy her?
"Nowadays it does, especially in this country. I get a wee bit frustrated now if it’s constantly brought up-1 usually make a point to newspaper journalists who are basically talking about your life. I'll mention it but that's not going to be the focus.
"No matter what you do they'll write what they want.
But abroad quite often the reviews for concerts will not mention anything and quite often reviewers will not know, and that's good for me."
In fact at some concerts overseas nobody present, not the audience, the orchestra or the press, will know about Evelyn's deafness. This is the way they like it, as the risk is that someone will say the music is good "for someone who's deaf" rather than just the music is good.
Evelyn does, however, have the career of someone twice her age. And her credits are stunning by any yardstick. But as I said she puts all this back into music, teaching young people about music, and demonstrating through example that musicians are hard working people and you don't just turn up on the night in a flowery dress.
Practice looms large in the life of any musician, more so in the life of a top musician, and Evelyn is no exception.
The next evening she was due to do a performance and was practising hard when we arrived, and doubtless V mg a computer language.
"If you've already learned Amos, then Basic or Database Management Language Is that much easier to get into. And the more languages vou learn the easier the next one is to leam, the more points of reference you have."
One of the reasons I was talking to Evelyn was that she and Greg have recently completed their studio, which is entirely run (business and Midi) using Amigas, The A4000 nestlm in the studio among the racks and digital recorders runs everything via Bars k Pipes Pro 2.
Although the studio was made so they could record and rehearse, Evelyn composes using something far more sophisticated - the human brain.
"A lot of it is just done in my mind. Nearly all the pieces I've written are stored in my head. I haven't really got around to writing them down, which I really have to do now.
"Sometimes I compose at the keyboard, but very rarely do 1 compose at the marimba or something like that. I'm really keen to explore TV music, documentary and film music because I love to write just little snippets of music.
I'm basically a composer with a tiny 'c'."
She holds her forefinger and thumb about two millimetres apart. Despite this opinion of her composing skill, she's hoping her new Amiga-based studio will help her to explore the world of music for TV and films at her own pace.
"And if in the future I consider cutting back on the performances I can always work from here. I think 1 mentioned this to Greg and so we thought we'll get very basic stuff, and the idea grew and grew until Greg took over and left me way behind with the equipment."
So now they have a studio in which they can record everything from classical Cds to hard grungv rock. You think they wouldn't like that? Greg is anxious to work with all kinds of players, as long as they're into quality rather than quantity.
I asked him if he thought using Midi tripped up the musical process bv placing too many options at a musician's disposal.
"I think you've hit the nail on the head. I think Midi is designed to aid those people who aren't musicians. Midi is actually verv difficult to work with if you're a musician.
We had problems.
"The quantise was off, no metronome or anything and Evelyn just played, and of course when we came to edit something it was impossible because the music notation was all over the place. With standard classical music Hon it would be relatively easy, but with Midi it everything very literally."
With regular music it's all very loose, as far as the of the world is concerned, but very tight within itself And as Greg pointed Out, it's the little that make classical music a performance rather squeaky clean record.
"I'm currently talking to the people at Blue Soundworks about Bars k because it's very much geared the Midi musician, and I think one of the few people that are with sequencers on the Amiga that musicians.
"So we're trying to work out of keeping the classical straightforward while allowing freedom underneath it. I think the forward is for the notation to be tised without the music itself being quantised. I have sav Blue Ribbon an- very helpful.
“It's getting there, but time signatures are still a lem. That piece I played to you earlier was in 10 8 and the machine that's broken down into 1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,
2. Getting a definable metronome is something Ribbon are working
on."
As far as Greg is concerned, on the Amiga Bars & is the best available, and he's them all. He was an Amiga fan, and wanted to do it all the Amiga if he could.
He demonstrated wh using the A4000. Vvhi running a sequence!
Through the Midi stac!
He brought Superbas Pro 4 to the front an did a sort on the hun-1 dreds of sounds in the!
Proteus modules.
The music didn’t stop, and so multitasking increases the productivity of the studio without causing all the hang-ups you'd get with the Mac or PC, which would stop the music while you worked on the database of sounds or Evelyn's blistering performance schedule.
If the phone goes while he's laying a track down to the I digital recorder, Greg can print out a list of tour dates and I do it all there and then without holding up the session I 4 They can record everything from classical to hard grungy rock would be when we left. She is learning new instruments all the time, some old and traditional, some new like the MIDI DrumKat in the studio. In fact she doesn’t know how many instruments she can play these days - she's lost count.
"A lot of them are related. I play all the main instruments, all the tuned percussion, timpani, various drums, a lot of hand percussion, bod ran, lots of things.
"I constantly collect instruments, and if a piece requia-s M ¦ PROFILE Bars & Pipes is the tor the job, as the and the DMR8 t recorder can be to the video everything run- in perfect sync SMPTE timecode.

So tn setting up their own facility they ensure that time

All the equipment in the studio is paid for, and Evelyn's career as a performing musician ensures that they can keep the place running even if they don't get anyone through the door to record there.
It does mean that they can choose their customers and allocate quite a lot of time to them while they're there.
One thing Greg is keen to do is make sure he keeps a wide spectrum of work, so he'll be cutting a CD for one of Europe's top brass ensembles, but also a demo CD for a local rock band.
"What it means is that I can really be certain of the quality. If I get someone coming in who hasn't got a great deal of money, but has got a lot of enthusiasm and what 1 think are some great ideas, I can say 'Look, we'll do if for what vou can afford' if it takes a week, if it takes two weeks. You pay me for the finished product.
"It does mean I'm losing money compared to a conventional studio, because there'll be a lot more down time, but as I said before that's not a real concern.
"If for example you've got a reader who's come up with some particularly good ideas on Bars & Pipes, and yet they haven’t got the couple of thousand pounds a week that a studio like this would expect to charge, that might not necessarily be a problem.
"There are limits - I can't spend four weeks on something for £200, but having said that I'd be reasonably flexible."
Publicity isn't a problem due to who Evelyn is. But on the other side of the coin, it means that any work leaving the studio has to be of very high quality, to match her reputation as a quality performer.

"If I had to name one event it would be the carnival in Rio de janiero, Brazil."
Evelyn is one of the few Europeans who's ever been allowed to compete, and even then she had to wear the male costume and wear dark make-up to make her look like a Brazilian.

Eliminate those arguments over whether it’ll be The Match or Kick Off forever, with an Amiga-dedicated picture-in- picture viewing facility. Wilf Rees salivates... Roctec any of vou video huffs out there will be familiar with the name Roctec. For some time they have provided the Amiga market-place with a range of reasonably priced, yet effective genlocks.
Inputs for all To the front there are no external controls. All system or programme changes are accomplished by means of the remote controller. An LED numencal read-out offers information on channel selection and tuning, white seven other assorted LEDs provide details on inputs andfor frequency reception (UHF. VHF*HI or VHF-LOW) The rear of the unit is realty the business end, bristling with a collection of 12 phono inputs, one RF input, one five-pin DIN input, one three-position slider switch and a miniature jack socket.
To eliminate the obvious, the DIN socket is power-in, the miniature jack socket is headphones. And the three-positon slider is a volume adjustment level with three presets RF In is the TV aerial input This leaves the 12 phono sockets, and it is the permutations Of these sockets which offer the versatility.
Three of them are output, one video and the other two left and right audio The remaining nine phono sockets are inputs, divided into three separate channels, each one being video and two stereo sound channels.
This latest piece of kit is directed straight to the heart of those of us who just cannot resist techno goodies, and offers a range of facilities which extend the Amiga's capabilities even further.
PIPView is essentially a Picture in Picture viewing facility, combined with a TV tuner. Now you might say "So what?"
I accept that many VCRs exist which offer this facility, and applied to television and video situations, are about as useful as a second-hand Atari, but what no company has considered doing is looking at that facility, adding a TV tuner, extending the capabilities to perform many additional useful tasks, and marketing it at an acceptable price. The outcome is an extremely useful addition to any multimedia setup, and could provide additional complex and sophisticated capabilities to broaden even the most advanced system The first obviously quality feature of this piece of gear is the
packaging. A very large picture adorns the cover, of a TV screen, showing Newcastle United in hill glory (nice one Roctec!). Inset into the soccer action is a picture- in-picture shot of the Space Shuttle taking off.
I can confirm that the quality of the images obtainable with this kit are as good as the illustration describes. The unit itself is a matt-black box, 30mm high, 200mm deep and 300mm wide - almost the same size as a Sinclair ZX Spectrum.
In addition to the main unit there is yet another of those horrid external power supplies of the brick type, as opposed to the mutated 13 amp plug This terminates in a male five-pin DIN connector, which conveys the required voltage to the main unit. An infra-red remote control unit gives the complete package an air of quality, and the comprehensive instruction manual more than adequately explains its use.
In addition to the very well produced documentation comes a tatty photocopied insert, describing how one might connect PIP to an Amiga system. This I am sure was a well intentioned afterthought, no doubt equally prepared for other computer systems which it might serve as well.
ASSORTED Gathering up all ol the video gear I could muster, I began bunging all manner of assorted signals into the various inputs.
I used a camcorder, a VHS VCR, a laserdisc player, an old hetamax recorder and an Amiga. All functioned perfectly.
What was I able to do? I was able to manipulate the various video sources, either bv selecting which source occupied the main screen, and which the picture in picture, or vice versa. The audio input was also selectable between the main screen and a subsidiary input. An .additional feature was the option to locate the picture- in-picture image at any one of four corner locations on the screen.
If nothing else, this unit converts a How to set it all up In this schematic, I have presented a permutation Of a multi-media setup, which uses the PIPView extensively. VCR1 and VCR2 both feed into the PIPView with Audio. VCR2 has the video feed going into the genlock, whereas the video out from VCR1 goes into the PIPView.
Combined Amiga and VCR2 image exits from the genlock and is fed into the PIPView. The external aerial lead comes in as RF and goes into the PIPView. Left and Right audio and video out from the PIPView are fed directly into the Commodore monitor, which is switched to CVBS.
We now can effect the following options: 1 View the Amiga graphics overlaid on: VCR2 video.
2 or as above: VCR2 with PIP Video 1 3 or as above: VCR2 with TV (selected channel).
4 or as above VCR2 with VCR1 PIP 5 or as above: VCR2 with option of VCR1 or TV.
6 or as above: TV with PIP Amiga graphics 7 or as above: TV with PIP Amiga graphics overlaid on 8 or: TV with PIP VCR1 9 or; TV with PIPVCR2 10or: VCR1 with PIPVCR2 11 or: VCR1 with PIP Amiga VCR2 12 or VCR1 with PIP Amiga graphics overlaid on VCR2 Numerous other permutations exist. VCR1 could be replaced by a video camera offering security surveillance, or a satellite receiver could replace VCR1. Offering a whole new variety of options. The possibilities are legion, and the versatility amazing.
Utilise three cameras, and continually move around them checking different locations, using the PIPView.
Using the same basic principle, a camera could be pointed at a baby’s cot, and sound and vision monitored during the course of an evening, displaying the sleeping (or otherwise), little dear simply by calling up a picture in picture image videos could include playback animation, or zoom detail within the insert, then record back to capture the two images.
This is a piece of equipment which I was initially hesitant about reviewing.
First thoughts are that it is just another techno-gimmick, offering clever effects, but not really of any use.
CIRCUITRY On a banal level, it allows you to use your Amiga and monitor two other TV channels simultaneously. It a will even allow you to record from air, and actually eliminate the commercial breaks from the recording, due to sensing circuitry in the unit.
At this level of performance, it is an accessory worth considering. However, I believe PlPViewhas a very rare quality among the myriad of paraphernalia constantly appearing on the computer scene, and a characteristic which I readily salute.
That quality to which 1 refer is the effectiveness of its use. The PIPView can be many things to many people - only the imagination of the user will eventually discover both its capabilities and its limitations- E3 Turn your monitor into a remote controlled TV in minutes 4 on any screen, Aside from security applications, the PIPView- has much greater potential as a device to enhance the nature of presentation material. Demonstration videos could easily be made, which utilise the inset images to illustrate visually the nature of the message or procedure being exhibited.
An example might he the kind of video often seen in big electrical stores, which advertise a new kind of electrical appliance.
The main screen could be showing a broad overview of the equipment in use, while the PIPView could zoom very close in on particular features which the manufacturers wish to highlight.
Anyone who uses and Amiga to create approaches the back door of my house.
The infra-red sensor is tripped Voltage change is detected by the I O port, which switches on the camera and the PIP, and there is my son unknowingly demonstrating one of the cheapest and effective security systems I have seen.
Remember, this device could equally work with your Amiga running through your TV. In effect you could have a continuous security monitoring facility as you watch your TV in the evening.
This would be a particularly useful device for anyone living in a remote area, or a person living on their own.

Ictnember, with PIP you can listen to TV audio output from your monitor, using Dpaint, for instance. It may
* that you just wish to see a particu- m on a programme, and that
rough oring will avoid you listening or ¦g to the unwanted
information.
Using the unit conversely, you may be waiting for your Amiga to com- a computation, complete a ray-trac- or update a spreadsheet, in which . The press of a button will reverse the allowing you to watch a TV or source, with the Amiga inset as a tView. You can then successfully moni- f the progress of the Amiga.
INFRA-RED These may well be sufficient reasons in
• mselves to warrant you buying the tW. But to me, what is far
more interest- mt, is the possibilities this facility offers »
broader applications.
Not long ago I was reviewing the Srrtchsoft I O port which affords control fhcfibes to the Amiga's parallel and joy ports. I still hadn't returned the gnr. So, out it came, and after an hour of feldling with electronic components and
• old security camera, I had rigged up a connector to the
infra-red sensor on the ¦lunn outside my house.
Now, as the sensor (one of those fitted Mow a twin lamp) is triggered, the I O port detects it, and switches on the old ¦curity camera.
This in turn is connected to the I O port. Via the mains controller unit, and on to the PIPView.

FONT EDITOR NEW!__£99.99 WORDWORTH 2 AGA. _____________£89.99 Before the inevitable stroll through the huge and slightly terrifying features list, now might bo a good time to describe what the new Real3D is all about, and who it has been designed for.
The answer to the first question is probably animation, with the main thrust of the new release revolving around a plethora of new techniques which without doubt make the program the most comprehensive animation tool on the market.
As for the second, the answer is twofold. For the professional willing to invest the considerable amount of time needed to master the system, it offers a state-of-the- art platform that with practice will generate images that simply aren’t possible on any other platform.
For those who don't fit into the first category, the user base is likely fall into two spheres, with the first being the dedicated ray tracing enthusiast for whom time and money is nothing compared to their addiction.
Even bette real thin Coffee table The second could perhaps be described as the coffee table professional. In short, the kind of person who will buy the package, plav with it once or twice and then leave it lying around ready to inspire dreary conversations about what they would do "if only I had the time”.
Although a rather brutal introduction I feel it's justified if onlv to counter the inevitable feeding fren2y generated by the bandwagon of Amiga journalists who often feel duty-bound to scream the praises of a package without giving the punter and the application of his or her latest investment a second thought.
In short Real3D 2 personifies professional Amiga software. It isn't a point and click paradise, it doesn't hand you the images on a plate and as a result demands as much attention as it does - hard cash.
Thanks to the intuitive design of most Amiga releases we've all become a little spoiled when it comes to user friendliness.
Real 2 gives no quarter in that department offering a unique approach which puts the ball firmly in your court. After a little over two weeks working with the program I'm not in the least bit ashamed to admit that I've only begun to scratch the surface
- however that doesn't mean I'll be offering a regurgitated
press release which certain magazines consider a format for
success.
A classic example of the program putting you in the hot seat is the new and totally unique interface. Within this initially alien environment almost anything goes and it's up to you what does, and what doesn’t. Instead of the old-style multiple screens of its predecessor you're provided with a collection of components which can be added, removed, sized and placed to your own design.
Of course this doesn't mean you're provided with a blank screen and expected to fill it, as initially you're offered a default layout containing the three key elements to the interface.
They are the view, select and tool windows. However before a detailed description of each, a brief overv iew of the mam principles of the new environment would be wise.
We're all well aware of the multitasking skills of the Amiga but the new Real attempts to take multitasking a step further bv offering an asynchronous, no wait state design.
In English this means each window behaves as almost a program within a program with the various element multitasking independently making it possible to render in one view while editing the mapping attributes of the object - ready for a simultaneous render from a different angle in another window.
To take things to their extreme, you could have half a dozen view Real3D v2 promises to be the most complex modelling and animation system ever to hit the Amiga. Paul Austin grits his teeth and takes it on windows all rendering in different I styles simultaneously. In short, no matter how fast you apply changes the program will keep track, running each as a background task. Taking things further still, you can open as many environments as you wish providing a series of designer screens with their own views and tool selections, each remaining completely independent of the parent and After two
weeks working with the program I've only now begun to scratch the surface... even running in a different resolution.
I his is ideal for specialist animation environments, freeform modelling, point editing or emulation of other programs - the old Real, Imagine, Caligan and so on.
A touch of overkill perhaps but it's all available if there's a need.
Still, however ingenious, it isn’t with- Amiga Computing July 1993 46 render the image either to the window, a file, or an external display device, the selection of which can be defined via the main interface.
Like Real's old render screen, each view can be customised with various options for lighting, the degree of antialiasing; the background colour - whether it be a gradient or solid; the output file size and location; the application of environment and background texture mapping and so on.
Within each output option you can also define the quality of the image to be generated from six presets, ?
«it its faults - a testament to this being the two days spent organising environments and attempting to eradicate quirks and apparent bugs when running the program on hi-res interlaced and productivity machines.
This problem could have been avoided d onlv the authors hadn't chosen to sup- all the example environments in hi-res only.
To return to the description embarked epon earlier, the obvious place to start is the view windows, which due to their introspective nature provide a unique set-up screen to define not only what appears on-screen but also where the output of any renders will be targeted.
Once active, a hot-key or pull-down reveals view's specific requester, ready to rent atter ;ram is a ther ents
* of )wn ling and than the Keep on moving Animation is arguably
the biggest beneficiary of the new release. Like the rest of
the package, animation has undergone some dramatic changes, not
least of which is the total redesign of the way in which the
program handles the animation process.
In the past. Real3D operated strictly on a frame-by-frame basis using key frames and tween points. Now however the pro* grammers have cast aside the old frame format completely in preference for animation over time.
The advantage is that re-computatlon of a sequence is now simply a matter of adjusting the relative time of the element or scene thereby allowing the software to re-lnterpolate the sequence automatically.
When this new approach is combined with the hierarchical combination of object, mapping and animation, you arrive at a very logical, clean and self-contained approach to problem of complex animation - and believe me some of the program's anim techniques can produce very complex animations indeed.
Needless to say. Due to the variety and complexity of the anim options you're likely to spend just as much time mastering the various animation techniques as you model the various components of the scene.
To illustrate the various anim options here's a brief rundown of the available methods. Obviously basic motion via paths has been included, in addition to more sophisticated options allowing shape modification to produce undulating organic forms,.
There's morphing - possibly in conjunction with textures; skeletal anims, which provide a common structure for related elements; and of course inverse kinematics - ideal for combination objects which interact to produce the illusion of joints such as hands and fingers.
On top of this comes the program's particle animation system which allows the addition of real world effects such as gravity, velocity, spin, mass and surface friction.
As a result, pool table anims will no doubt be the in-thing as the virtual cue ball crashes into the pack, automatically sending the balls spin* ning across the baize interacting with their counterparts just like the real thing.
To put the anim options into perspective, almost 70 example scenes come as part of the package, each of which illustrate a different technique,.
They include (deep breath) paths; rotation; sweeps (alias tracking); size manipulation; stretches; direction: control curves; skeleton effects; inverse kinematics; morphing; transformations; radial force (alias gravitational effects); directional force (such as turbulence); tangent (centrifugal force); collision detection; creation (for example boiling water or wriggling snakes) and finally liquids (whether they be single drops or an entire ocean).
Macros on disk Another impressive feature of the mod elling environment is the program's Macro feature, an option which allows any actions to be recorded and then repeated automatically as many times as necessary. Better still, such processes can be stored on disk or even appended to a hot-key or tool icon to produce designer automated tools.
On a more exotic note. Real also pro* vides a built-in fractal generator tor both trees and landscapes, both of which come Rendering in detail As you can see from the screenshots, the program offers full support for the AGA with all screen modes supported - even Ham8, However, it must be stressed that actually operating in such resolutions does mean a dramatic increase in rendering and updating times. While on the subject of time, this is probably a good time to mention Activa's claim that the new Real is the fastest ray tracing environment on the machine.
This may indeed be the case in certain situations, however when the program's power features are applied I must admit to experiencing little or no difference in relation to its predecessor.
Prime candidates for painfully slow rendering include the much-hyped soft shadows and motion blur, which although dramatic, do cause huge Increases in rendering time. However, having said that, even these pale in significance when compared to complex B-spllnes.
Even with the specially optimised 040 version - claiming rendering times eight times that of its 020 030 counterpart -1 still wasn't over-impressed. If ever a package screamed out for an 060 processor, this is the one!
Leaving the rendering time aside, it must be said that the quality of the finished product is spectacular, boasting arguably the best anti-aliasing and overall image quality on the market.
When this is combined with the respectable rather than spectacular times and the unique effects mentioned above, you can't fail to be impressed.
?
Namely draft, environment, lampless, shadowless, normal and outline, with the variations providing everything from quick rough renders which ignore any texture mapping to the ultimate quality the software can provide.
The somewhat less conspicuous but equally essential select window is next under the microscope and it's from here where the underlying structure is applied and edited.
Old Real users will already he familiar with the program's hierarchical approach to the modelling process and thankfully this has been retained in the new version - complete with a few embellishments of course.
In a nutshell. Real organises its scenes in a similar manner to a disk, with a root directory containing various sub directories which in the case of Real translate into the various objects and their components.
In a slight break from tradition, literally everything now becomes part of the hierarchical approach with texture maps and even animation all appearing in the overall structure.
Target objects For example, adding a texture or multiple textures to an object involves simply placing it them within the same level as the target object - thereby appearing as objects themselves with names such as wood(T). These can be edited when necessary while still remaining unique to the object they accompany.
The real beauty of this hierarchical approach is that if other objects or subdirectories appear within that level they automatically share the same mapping attributes without any additional editing on the part of the user.
A similar approach applies to everything else with even an object's animation attributes appearing as a pseudo object within tho selection window.
In short, it’s a very neat, logical and natural approach - and of course multiple windows moan you can spotlight parts of the structure in one window while still retaining an overview in another.
Moving on to the last window, we come to the hx ls which although similar to the selection of icons found in the original Real do hold a few surprises, not least of which is the disappearing hot-keys which I - and many others - had become so familiar with.
One of my main complaints initially was that manv of the original hot-kev short-cuts were missing or had been hijacked. Thankfully however thev had only migrated to the tool window where they now appear as icons offering all the familiar cut and paste options thereby eliminating the tedious trek through the enormous and somewhat confusing array of pull-downs. In total, 13 categories of tool are available providing all the familiar primitives, Boolean and freeform options in addition to mapping, editing and much more. And because the tool windows also share the internal multitasking design
you can open a series of user defined tool boxes with as manv or as few tools as you need.
Like its predecessors, the new Real Ls a solid modeller with a heavy emphasis on primitives as its primary building blocks.
Vs a result a huge range of shapes can be created from preset forms, either bv selecting the object style from a pull-down or more often bv clicking on the appropriate tool icon. Once an object is defined - whether it be a prim, tube, polygon, polyhedron or whatever - it can be move, scaled, Stretched, rotated nr perhaps edited more dramatically courtesy of the program’s Boolean operations; a feature which allows one object to act as a cutting implement on another.
Depending on the Boolean chosen, chunks can be from the target object or perhaps the nal removed completely only the intersection of the objects behind. Better still, Booleans offer fhe ability to leave the texture attributes of the cutting tool on surface.
If Booleans are not enough, the gram also provides freeform tools can generate much more complex to be edited with a selection of almost tools specifically designed for objects.
At the forefront of the organic side the software comes the new B-spline faces allowing ultra smooth curves, guaranteed facet free - not a polygon in sight!
As vou can see from the head the quality offered by B-splines is able but like manv of the power features has a dramatic impact on rendering - least quadrupling the time taken to ate similar shapes created by the gram's primitive, compound and lathe tools.
The mandatory requesters bristling assorted option - especially in the “of tree generation.
Support has also been added for I Aotocad DFX files - a format fully catered far within the new Pixel 3D Professional.
Although not spectacular news for the ¦Mfority, it nevertheless adds a powerful option for commercial artists who may require a means of translating existing ttructured artwork or plans into the world fa Real3D.

• o the challenge offered by Imagine2 - a program which has
supplied multiple maps for some time.
Unfortunately although Real has also always offered maps they've been strictly smgular for each object in the scvne. Now that's all changed with the new version offering unlimited maps for each object in wide variety of formats. However, even though multiple maps are an exciting addition, they're only a part of the program's material skills. Aside from applying standard Amiga graphics or 24-bit
4. .. the most comprehensive mapping system in the business
Conclusion As you've probably guessed, the new Real is very
serious stuff which offers the most advanced ray tracing
environment yet to appear on any desktop machine.
As far as the manual and assorted support is concerned things are a little mixed, with a manual which is roughly three to four times the size of its predecessor. As for readability it scores slightly higher than the Imagine2 manual courtesy of a wide selection of step-by-step examples.
Nevertheless it must be said that the authors often assume a bit too much of the reader - especially the beginner.
On the other hand, what the manual lacks the huge selection of example animations, scenes and mapping demos more than make up for.
In fact, once you've mastered the basics, exploring the examples can be a much quicker method of picking up the finer points. In addition to the support files and manual, a built-in hyper-text help system also awaits if quick reference is required.
Continuing on the theme of support the package comes with a familiar selection of display and conversion utilities in addition to the aforementioned huge variety of example images and scenes.
After the rollercoaster ride of the main article, hopefully your mind will already be made up. If not, here's a woefully inadequate potted opinion.
For any would-be investor the question has to be is the six months needed to really rpaster the package worth the new features and the £400 asking price?
For the professional I'd say the answer is yes. But for those new to ray tracing, Real3D Classic at roughly a quarter of the price is a much more attractive option - which in time could lead on to an upgrade when your requirements and skills demand the attentions of its muscle-bound bigger brother.
Files onto the surface, the actual attributes of the objects can be defined by a selection of parameters allowing anything from a cloud of gas to a diamond.
Thanks to the solid modelling approach mentioned earlier, Real3D also has the advantage of accurately reflecting and refracting light which means that if you create a flattened oval object and add the necessary attributes to create glass you'll produce a perfect lens which could be used just like its real world counterparts.
Obviously when the attributes of an object - whether it be chrome, glass, plastic or whatever - are combined, the object colour and any maps that mav have been applied can lead to spectacular results.
However that's only the tip of the iceberg courtesy of the program’s 12 mapping techniques which can make the impossible an everyday event with features such as bump and dip maps all adding to the overall power of the most comprehensive mapping system in the business.
Morphed On a personal level I'm impressed most of all by the ability to blend maps together on the same object creating hot-spots for the materials in question. In addition materials can also be morphed or animated by simply appending sequential file names.
Unfortunately it's not all good news when it comes to mapping, and although flagged as one of the major selling points of the package, the program's new procedural and mathematic textures are likely to remain beyond most of us for a long, long time.
The reason is the appearance of the dreaded RPL programming language. In order to use the aforementioned features at least a rudimentary understanding of the RPL is required. Based on FORTH, the Real3D derivative isn't exactly what you'd call easy reading.
After a couple of hours wading through the RPL I can guarantee non- smokers will be reaching for the Woodbines while the alcoholics leap from the wagon like lemmings from a cliff. If the program's authors really think that a perverse interest in higher mathematics and programming in general is infectious, I'm afraid they're sadly mistaken.
By nature most artists recoil at the prospect of programming and quite frankly at £400 a time they shouldn't be expected to suddenly develop an interest.
As a result I'd be very surprised if more than one in 100 users will ever make serious use of the RPL - a sad fact because not only will the new mapping options largely be ignored but also the advanced customising potential of the language throughout the package.
In reality for most people applying the RPL will be a matter of downloading files or perhaps buying in third-partv RPL support software as the program gains momentum.

For other Lemming saviours out there who read your truly amazing magazine, tell them not to rush as the end result is a bit of an anti-climax. 1 was expecting a small piece of animation as there is in the introduction, but there was just a load of unfunny credits, not Lemming-like at all.
Could you please find out why the menu has an exit sign on it covered with crosses, though even when the game is finished the crosses remain which makes the exit button useless?
Graham Wood. Northwich Thanks for being a clever dick! It’s slightly disappointing to hear that the climax to this excellent game is so tame, but I’d rather hair more gameplay than an over-worked finishing sequence any day, and I’m sure tlu' majority of Amiga game players agree.
The button you mention is a mystery to us.
Too, and we don’t want to ask Psugnosis because we'll look silly Any ideas, folks?
TV We dropped the second disk because it was becoming an expensive exercise to publish two disks and push up the price of the magazine when tiw supply of widely popular software was Juvuiling.
It would bt1 pointless to stick an extra disk on Ihe cover for the sake of doing so, especially if less than half our readers battled the software it amtained.
Playable game demos haven't appeared on the CoverDisk since about 1989 because they take' up most of the disk and tlure doesn 't seem to be much demand for them from our readers.
Yours is the first letter for many months which I can remember calling for games demos, though the debate is always open.
If enough letters arc received on one side or other of this ijuesthm, we will look at the game demo situation again, so keep those missives coming, I can’t answer your third question as it’s an industrial secret, but for help on your fourth query you might try Computer Manuals in Birmingham. They com most areas and can be reached on 021-706 MX).
Tion correctly. I realise this is not a complete solution, but it does allow one to use Protext from a hard drive-equipped A-1200.
Simon Kmdge, Brighton For the past month one of our technical gnomes has been trying to sort out tiw Workbench 3.0 hard drive solution, and this sort of thing is all he's come up with. It appears that Prolext has a problem with the new display modes and the only way to get around the obstacle is to bool without invoking Iprefs.
Of course a more elegant method might be to include an ASK statement in the startup-sequence or use a utility such as MBPress (which was on a CoverDisk a few months back) to detect for a mouse button press during startup.
At the beginning of this year, I bought an A1200 as an upgrade to my A2000. And as I have a large collection of application software on my old hard drive I consequently purchased an IDE drive for my At200.
At that time it was not possible to obtain an ‘officiaF hard drive upgrade, so I took the risk of installing it myself. I appreciate that this voided my warranty, but Commodore’s stupid policy left me no choice.
A friend of mine has an A4000, so I used his software to install Workbench 3 0 on the hard drive and all seemed well until I installed Protext v4.3. When I attempted to execute Protext I encountered the same problem as Mr McKechnie did in his letter published in your Apnl issue.
I am rather surprised at this as I installed Workbench using the method you recommended (an A4000 install i f know of any statistics which shou' the relative number of parents and children who buy , SO your contention that parents buy most of them must remain unsubstantiated. Whether or 1 parents do buy violent games for their children is, however, a side issue.
Law as it stands is more a supporting structure for loopholes than a guardian against try software, and the most sophisticated hard sell advertising techniques are levelled at chil- n every time they tune in to TV after school or on Saturday morning.
In such conditions, to spout from on high about parental responsibility and choice is a bit like' arising the Light Brigade for an unsuccessful charge.
Most parents will, of course awid games with titles like Chainsau' Massacre II. But the one you is no more or less violent than many others on the market at ihe moment, and its title no ¦ alarming.
So much hype and peer pressure was built up around Street Fighter II that many parents must have been immensely relieved when it was finally released so they could buy it and shut the ¦Knous little beasts up for ten minutes.
Can you blame I hem?
Disk decisions I have some questions which I would be very grateful if you could answer.
• Why did you drop the second disk from magazine just like Amiga
Format did?
• Why don't you have playable demos of nrw games on the
CoverDisk?
• What software packages have you got on forthcoming CoverDisks?
• Do you know of any books about C.FA Basic?’ Thank you very
much.
Peter Armann, Leicester just read the feature "Sex, lies, and video games" and I would like to bring up a that no one has addressed Who is it that buys most of these games? Most of the time the parents.
During Christmas, how many children went and bought Street Tighter 2? Now com- tfus to the number of parents who bought it for their children. It is unfair to blame wftware industry totally for these claims made by the press, it is usually the parents who buy games software, don't you think it is their choice to their children to play these "violent" games?
Colin Cassidy. Rothesay disk). However. I did some investigating of my own and came up with a partial solution that is not entirely satisfying. But which works.
In the startup-sequence is a command “IPrefs’' which, I believe, initiates the Workbench with the user's preference settings If the startup-sequence is executed without Iprefs. Protext functions perfectly, so my solution is to make a second startup-sequence without the offending line Once this has been done, your must boot with both mouse buttons held down, select “boot with no startup- sequence'. And then type: EXECUTE SiSTWUP-SEiUEIICE.COPT Workbench will appear as normal and Protext will funclame the arents!
Protext prefs puzzler ¦LETTERS More A1200 thoughts I bought my A1200 back in November and since then 1 have been reading with interest all topics and letters about the A1200, compatibility with games and external drives, and so on, so I've done some experimenting with some of my mates' utilities and games.
Most work without problems, and choosing the correct chip set and display option gets the game working on some of the reluctant ones, but some are still not usable oven after trying all the possible options.
The best I have found is to disable the CPU caches and choose the enhanced chip set before booting the game.
Funnily enough, the age of the software seems not to bo important, as I have tried stuff going back to 1988 which works fine- Some of the games I have managed to get to work I have seen in some software lists, and even some magazines, as not working on the A1200. These include Fire and Ice, Switchblade II, and Lure of the Temptress (though I've only tried disk one of the latter). Newer releases such as Nick Faldo’s Championship Golf work fine.
As for fitting an external floppy drive, I phoned Power Computing for a PC880B and was told that the problem with A1200 wiring had been corrected and there was no longer a problem with compatibility, so I bought one. No problem - it's much quieter than the garbage disposal unit inside my A1200.
Speaking about noisy drives, I read an article about misaligned drive heads causing disks to fail to load. 1 have experienced this myself with Crystal Kingdom Dizzy. My machine gives and on-screen message saying "Software Protection Failure", but my mate's machine loads it perfectly. Is this or could it become a serious problem, and should I return mv machine for repair?
David Hurst, Topsham In I recently bought the game Pirates from a second-hand car boot sale. When I returned home to examine my prize bargain, however. I was dismayed to find that part of it (the map to be precise) wasn’t there.
I contemplated suicide, decided this was too drastic, and phoned Microprose instead to see if they could help. The phono gave but two short nngs, then a friendly voice said "Can I help you?”. I told her my problem, to which she replied “We have one m stock. I’ll get it sent off to you."
Lo and behold, the missing piece of paper flopped onto my door mat the very next day. It is good to see that customer and after-sales service is still important on occasion and I congratulate Microprose on a job Got something to say through the pages of AC7 Ezra Surf is our mailman, dedicated to reading your letters and selecting the most interesting for publication. Drop him a line at: Ezra Surf's PostBag. Amiga Computing Adlington Park, Macclesfield SK10 4NP Please don't enclose saes as Ezra just hasn't got enough paper to reply personally. He might also have to shorten your letters, so
don't be offended if you end up getting the chop A vector too far Am I the only reader of your magazine who’s interest in fractals measures somewhere below absolute zero? This area of mathematics has become something of a party bore over the past few years, with seemingly constant reviews of fractal landscape generators, fractal screen blankers, and fractal this that and the other.
No-one who works for Amiga magazines has twigged that most of us don't care a hoot whether it is mathematically possible for farting butterflies in Brazil to cause share prices to fall in New York.
I mean, I don't ask the man in Dixons to draw me a eircuit diagram and explain the behaviour of air particles subjected to sound vibrations when I buy a hi-fi, so why do reviewers presume that I'm interested in phongs and gourads and other members of the Tedium Hall of Fame?
Do you reallv expect me to gasp in astonishment when you let drop pearls of wisdom about Mandelbrots, Julias and Lyapunovs?
The three fractal stooges sound more like a dodgy legal firm than a set of interesting computer concepts. Think about it: Mandelbrot, Julia and Lyapunov, specialists in cases of divorce caused by mental torture through repetition. Give us a break, guys!
Peter Hunter, Coldstream Phew! You certainly put your point across. In fairness to AC, you might have mentioned that we've resisted the temptation to talk directly about fractal mathematics for a long time, and only looked at the area when a program such as Vista Pro 3.0 uses fractal techniques to do something interesting.
Other magazines tend now and again to pick a subject and extract as much tiresome trivia as possible from it. But despite the temptation we've resisted the urge to indulge in this sort of page padding. I hope our readers agree... the software list published in this month's Gamer - but take a peek in case it contains a game you were thinking about buying.
You seem to have reached the same conclusion as many other A1200 owners in that you have discovered the much vaunted compatibility problem isn't half as bad as it was originally painted by some, and certainly shouldn't put people off the new machine.
Your experimentation seems also to have led you to the most useful method for ensuring compatibility, so you might not require Misaligned drives can be a problem when tiny come up against heavily protected software U hkh uses non-DOS disk structures, but the problem is seldom bad enough to cause loading problems. I uvuld suggest you return the machine for repair as soon as possible.
Praise of Pirates distant relations who specialise more in the held of platform games and the like.
We don't wnte for a specific age group, however, and a great many younger readers enjoy the magazine Let's just say we cater for a certain type of reader who values the depth of editorial coverage we have always striven to make our hallmark. Your comments about Microprose are applicable to many Amiga suppliers Ihese days, but it's always nice to hear positive feedback as opposed to tales of negative experiences.
Speaking of negative experiences, your choice on whether or not to upgrade lo an A1200 should be eased by the comprehensive games compatibility list you can find m this month's Gamer.
Well done. On another note. I am contemplating trading in my okJ A5Q0 and investing in an At 200, but I have heard that some software doesn’t work on the new machine.
Oh. And congratulations to Amiga Computing for producing an enjoyable adult magazine for older Amiga users. You wouldn't by any chance know the average age of Amiga owners?
Richard Henderson, Leyton The average age turned up by our reader surveys vanes a bit. But is usually welt into the twenties and there are a significant number of people over the age of 30 among the AC readership, resulting in a much older audience than that enjoyed by some of our Pinball wizard Having always been more than i trifle cynical regarding the playing of computer games (you know, they're a substitute for sex going out a life ad infinitum) I write to confess to a curious change of heart.
After some highly absorbing sessions with Pinball Fantasies, which must be the most realistic pinball simulator on any format. I now have at least a dim comprehension of what all the flippers, lights, chutes and bonuses mean, and can make a game of three balls last for more than 60 seconds.
Achievement enough in itself, but the real test came when I found myself with the usual bunch of friends in the pub last Sunday, and someone suggested a game on the old pin table.
Well my turn came around, and you can imagine my glee as the oversized ball-bearing zipped around the table, kissing bonuses, gleefully rolling from chute to flipper to million jackpot and back again.
Before I knew it. My score was in the multi-millions, my pint was going warm and flat and feeling decidedly unwanted, and my cigarette had an overhang of ash longer than one would believe to be structurally possible.
The sigh I uttered as my last ball was finally lost was far more akin to the ' top sportsman robbed" kind of sigh than the “idiot fails to make any mark at all" variety previously preferred.
Not that this episode has helped me in any discernable way to achieve the sexual freedom I so desperately crave, but I fancy I ordered the replacement pint and lit a fresh cigarette with just a hint of the “treat 'em bad. Make 'em mad" masculinity used to such effect in the mating rituals of top Hollywood stars and other Gillette- using men for generations.
Who fan. Manchester It's gratifying to read a Story about a computer game which has a positive rather than a negative social effect, and even more so when a direct link can be shown between the playing of a game and the development of hand-eye co-ordination skills.
If only there was a “Six Pints and Chicken Biryani Without Regretting It” game with similar beneficial effects on the real life activity.

For additional information, demonstration disks, or brochures visit your Amiga dealer Both upgrades require: Amiga 500,500-,600,600 III), 1000,2000, or 3000, Workbench 1.3 or 2.0, 1 MB RAM (additional memory recommended). Two disk drives or hanl disk recommended make a copy of your Workbench disk - the one you normally start the machine with on a daily basis will do. If you have added or deleted anything from this disk, then you should make a copy of the original Workbench floppy and perform the initial configuration checks detailed in your user manual, set the preferences and soon.
If your machine is equipped with a hard disk, you could use that but since AmigaDOS can be finicky it is better to begin with a floppy. Mistakes on a hard disk can be difficult to rectify’.
It is essential to ensure you have the correct "keymap" set for the machine, and even if you did not bother with this previously you must do so now. This is a menu selected under 2.04 and operated from the Input Preferences screen from 2.1 onwards. Leave the disk write enabled and mark it clearly: AmigaDOS Working Disk. Njow follow these steps:
1. Boot the machine from the new disk and open it.
2. Locate and open the System drawer.
3. Locate and select the icon labelled "Shell".
4. Select Leave Out from the icons menu.
Shell will now move to the desktop - this is a good place to have it since you're going to need it a lot.
Now the preparatory steps have been will work - anything less will cause problems. Workbench 2.1 and 3.x are essentially the same; the higher version is intended for use with the AGA chip set.
Over the next few months, we’ll be looking at the construction of standalone boot disks including everything you need to get an application up and running; whether it's Workbench or Word worth, this series will show you how.
Think about this for a moment what actually constitutes a bootable disk? Such migaDOS, as you will soon discover, is computing at its purest. It is what separates real ers from consoles; the men from , the wheat from the chaff, teaming AmigaDOS unlocks a whole world of possibilities, allows anyone new heights but above all, it pro- a sense of achievement that no I user interface (GUI) could ever You can take pride in your work m the knowledge it was your skill experience that did the job faster, eas- In the first of a new series, Mark Smiddy explains how to harness the hidden power in
every Amiga... A kick up the floppies the same data but cease to function at all. This is exactly what older virus killers (and a lot of viruses) used to do to game disks. Swat a fly and the essence of insect still exists but the life has gone.
A boot disk is not a life form of course; it is not capable of independent thought and cannot replicate itself although such features could be simulated at a rudimentary level (this is, in fact, exactly what computer viruses do, hence the name). A lot of this is still far away, disks are specially prepared to start the machine. Awaken it, if you like. They make the startup screen go away and present you with Workbench, a game, application or whatever. Other than that there is nothing to separate bootable disks from ordinary ones.
Some thinkers consider a valid boot disk should contain more than this "proto bool-disk”. True to an extent: but no-one doubts that an amoeba is a life-form anv more than they dispute that mammals are - albeit more complex ones!
If you remove the essence what makes a boot disk bootable, it will still contain and at this stage we need to get over some basics.
For now, you will need: ¦r and better. The series is going to teach you AmigaDOS and will be concentrating m v2 and v3. While these allow some of the operations to be performed from Workbench, you are encouraged to follow
* e steps using AmigaDOS only.
This will give you a better grounding in iv subject, so no cheating. The series will assume you are familiar with basic Workbench terms such as Drawer, Project, Tod. Open, Close and so on and the various menu options- If you are at all unsure of these, this might be a good time to refresh your memory.
You will also need to know the general version of Workbench and kickstart you are using. If you have an A500 Plus or an upgraded A500 you will be running Kickstart 2.x; later machines wch as the A12W are fitted with Kickstart 3jl Provided your machine is not fitted with a hard disk these Kickstart ROMs can be identified from the Startup screen which shows a simple animation of a disk inserted into drive.
The version number «s shown in the bottom left of the display. Machines bearing a static "disk-and-hand" display on S tartup are NOT fitted with the correct ROM.
Workbench should be easier to identify.
Three versions are in common use with these machines and this is printed on the disk labels. Provided the version number is two or higher, everything detailed here taken, you can get to AmigaDOS proper.
Open the Shell icon and you'll get a window. This is an AmigaDOS "Shell" window.
Shell is a fancy name for a single-line wordprocessor and parser all rolled into one. Each Shell will announce itself with a standard title: AmigaShell and a message to the effect: "New Shell process xx".
Don't worry if the number (xx) shown on your machine is different from the one illustrated The Amiga is a multitasking environment and you can have many Shells open at the same time; the only limitation is the amount of available memory.
Process (Shell) numbers are automatically assigned by the machine - you have no control over them - although AmigaDOS will attempt to fill any free slots. If Shell numbers 1, 2, 3 and 5 were already in use and you opened a new Shell, the next Shell would open as Process 4. Don’t fret, it just works like that.
On the next line you'll see something called a "prompt". As before this may look different on your machine - but it will be there- The prompt is separated into four distinct parts:
• The current process (Shell) number as just described
• A hill stop. This is called a delimiter - it's a form of
punctuation which breaks the line up and makes it easier to
read.
• The current director)'. This will probably but not
necessarily) be showing the name of your boot disk followed by
some more punctuation - the full colon (;).
• A right-handed angle bracket ( ).
Just to the right of the prompt is a small square blob. This is known as the cursor and shows that AmigaDOS is ready to accept input (if the cursor is shadowed, make sure you make the window active by clicking inside its boundary).
Boot wifri .jiff's Boot uwng prpfs it-ttnqi r- pn* u*ngt Forget about all that for now. For the sake of this series we'll simplify things a little and adopt convention 1 This prompt is universal. It just means whatever follows it should he typed in at the keyboard. That's what AmigaDOS is all about - leaving behind the "buttons and ball" appriuch and discovering how to communicate with a computer from a keyboard.
Try entering your name - not forgetting to press Ketum at the end of the line. For instance: 1 Aai«a Couputinj dutifully, AmigaDOS responds: Aiiga: Unknoitn Comma AmigaDOS does not know the word "Amiga" - it's not it its vocabulary However, the AmigaDOS vocabulary by its verv nature is infinitely extensible.
Even so, basic knowledge of around 20 commands (lexicographers call them verbs) will get you started Each command is like a simple English sentence - it has a verb and one or more noun clauses. You don't have to be a polyglot to understand AmigaDOS though, consider this: Juap!
This word is a verb meaning to bounce, leap or vault. In itself it constitutes a complete sentence, albeit an abbreviated and demanding one. Add a few more words and you have a more specific sentence, viz.: Juap ovtr the fence.
This is the sort of basic English we learn in school at a verv early age. So is AmigaDOS really that complex? In essence, it is like a military English. The words are, initially, strange hut the grammar and construction are the same. How about other languages? If the sentence "Parlez vouz Francais?" Is positionally translated into English it looks this.
Speak you French!
The French would argue this is more logical and simple since the verb comes first (just like "jump" in the previous instance). In polite English we would write this; ho you speak French!
We use a redundant prepositional phrase (do) to open the question - something which crept into our colourful language several hundred years ago.
The practice of redundancy has never evolved in computer parsers: its too tricky to program and wasteful. In order to understand AmigaDOS vou have to think at a simpler level, or at least like a Frenchman. A verb (valid command) always comes first followed optionally by 4 It may help you to forget computers for a while... a list of noun clauses (options or arguments). The AmigaDOS vocabulary is quite large, and since each command can be followed by a multitude of command arguments, the list of possible instruction variants runs into thousands.
Don't be put off by that - it just means you have access to a tremendously powerful svstem. If the command cannot be found in the AmigaDOS dictionaries it complains with the error Unknown Command.
So where are all those commands? You may remember from time to time seeing a message like this: "Please insert volume: Workbench in any drive".
Although AmigaDOS is asking for a disk, the noun "volume" is another designation for a book - a dictionary perhaps.
There's no accident in that - the designers chose the analogy deliberately When you ask AmigaDOS to find a command it looks it up in its internal dictionai and, if it cannot be found there, searc* certain chapters (drawers) on t!
Initial startup disk. You can override fc and specify a particular volume if y wish.
Things can become a little confusing this stage because over the years, tw.
Completely different naming conventi have arisen.
The original system talks of books volumes and directories and the later speaks in terms of an office filing sys desktops, drawers, projects, tools and on. The evolution of GUIs (such Workbench) is responsible for th‘ and the AmigalX)S user should be awa of both.
All you need to know at this stage a that a drawer is a container for a collection: of items, just as a directory is a list of tf items held therein: an inventory if vc like.
It may help you to forget computers for; a moment and consider this. The analogies may seem unclear until you can get hold of something we take for granted.
Nip into your kitchen and have a look through a few drawers: the cutlery drawer is usually a good bet. Inside you will find a collection of knives, forks, spoons, teaspoons - possibly cheese graters and an egg slice: all manner of kitchen detritus.
If you're lucky enough to live in a well* ordered household, there's a good chance the eating irons are all stored together in a drawer insert - knives in the knives slot; spoons all together and so on. But if the drawer were missing where would everything go?
The organisation of a disk is no different and an intelligent user keeps similar items together. Items are sometimes stored in a sub-group.
Just like the insert in your cutlery drawer, the Amiga can store containers within containers - which computer scientists refer to as a “directory hierarchy” ora "hierarchical filing system".
You can see this in action from the Workbench (go on, one last time).
Open your W'orkbench disk and select Show ... All Files. Now locate and open the drawer marked DEVS. In there vouTI see a few items littered about
- plus more drawers like Printers and Keymaps.
Now as a parting gesture for this month - those of you who're desperate to jump in at the deep end wearing concrete boots might like to try this from AmigaDOS. Enter this: 1 »Ift DEVS: This will give vou the same information you just retrieved from W'orkbench.
Note the drawers are marked in the listing (dir). That's because, as I have said, AmigaDOS refers to drawers as directories and (dir) is merely an abbreviation to prevent overcrowding the display with redundant information. Computers are M t Y'J good at that... • • a look utlerv le you forks, heese ner of i well- hance ?r in a s slot; if the

A simple software driver and ROM(s) from the computer to be emulated are all that is required Multiple emulation modules can be run at the same time using a single emplant board' Support for custom EPROM's, static RAM and SIMM modules makes EMPLANT compatible with all existing methods of storing a computer's operating system Up to 2Mb of extra RAM (static, with battery back-up) can be
installed on the EMPLANT board, There is an on-board audio digitiser for emulations that can use it. A special processor slot allows the installation of custom processor boards (680x0.80x86,6502, Z80 etc.) for greater emulation speed, BLITTERSOFT otter four different versions Of the EMPLANT hardware. Dual senai ports that can be used on the Amiga side can also be used with all emulation modules AppleTalk, pnnter, midi and serial support is provided through these two ports for the MAC emulation. A high speed SCSI controller allows any SCSI device to be plugged directly into the EMPLANT hardware
(i.e scanners. SyQuest drives, hard drives etc.). The EMPLANT hardware is a standard Zorro ll lll plug in card for the A15002000 3000 4000 (A500 1000 owners will need a Zorro Bus adapter). A PCMCIA version for the A600 1200 will be available soon.
About the MAC tlx emulation software.
Support lor up to 16 colours is provided for non-AGA machines. A4000 owners can use a full 256 colours! Work is in progress to support several third party video boards such as Harlequin. DCTV. Firecracker, iv-24, EGS. Vrvid-24,5 OpalVtsion, Domino. Rainbow ll lll etc. Support lor AMAX format, MAC hard dnves. SyQuest Cartridges.
AmigaDOS devices (RAD, VDO, DH0 etc,), MAC 800K floppys (requires SYBIL hardware, sold separately), MAC IBM 1,44Mb floppyS and IBM 720K floppys is provided with easy lo use set up menus. Like ALL of the emulation modules that will be reloased for use with the emplant hardware, the MAC iix emulation module MULTITASKS with the Amiga's operating systeml You can simply pull down or Hip screens and get back to the Amiga side1 . And the MAC stays running at full Speed!
LATEST DEVELOPMENTS Support for the RETINA board, giving 256 16 million colour modes.
New multi-screen size drivers for PAL NTSC for both ECS AGA machines, supporting all Amiga screen resolutions available to your monitor.
AMAX cartridge support to use actual MAC drives if required.
UK BBS support imminent.
What aboul speed and compatibility?
A 25MHz A3000 runs the MAC llx emulation exactly twice as fast as a real MAC llx' (The A4000 speed is incredible!). The emulation runs ALL known MAC programs (in full colour, if available) and all white MULTITASKING with the Amiga! (The MAC llx emulation module requires an accelerated Amiga - 68020 30 40 with MMU and 256K MAC ROMs) Not all emulation modules will require accelerated machines Four megabytes of memory is recommended for use with System 7 Future emulation.
Since the EMPLANT hardware is SO versatile, a completely new and different computer can be emulated by changing the emulation software patch and the ROM(s). IBM AT (386-'486), Mega ST, C64 128 and even game machine (MEGADRIVE SNES) emulators are planned in the near future BASIC -EMPLANT system £254.95 OPTION A - BASIC EMPLANT system with high speed serial ports AppleTalk support £299,95 OPTION B - BASIC EMPLANT system with high speed SCSI interface £299.95 DELUXE BASIC EMPLANT system with both serial AND SCSI options £329.95 SYBIL - Hardware for using 8(X)K MAC disks with standard Amiga floppy

HiSoft Basic, like all high-level com- ¦r languages, provides a
selection of Bdl flow control constructs, and the Br Next
statement mentioned last month Etw example.
HiSoft BASIC A logical sequence I While Wend looping is also supported hd b often used for setting up this type wnple input processing loops: dmay value to force us into fit
* ' PHUT proapti x$ =”: INPUT i$ do soiethfpg ufth x* Also
provided are Do*Until and Do* Hwr loops, which allow pieces of
code to V executed until some expression
• oomes true or false respectively, and a Jore general type of
loop called a llrpeat End.
I Such kxips have been part and parcel of ¦Mventional programming for manv ¦Bin but with modern WIMP interface pachines, like the Amiga, a new option tea* arrived.
The Amiga's operating system includes •communications system that allows teaks to communicate with each other.
Know your commands Command: IF-THEN-ELSE Syntax: IF Boolean expression THEN [statements] ELSEIF Boolean expression THEN [statements] ELSE [statements] END IF Purpose: The true false values of the Boolean expressions are evaluated and the specified code is executed (or not executed) accordingly.
Command: SELECT... END SELECT Svntax: SELECT |CASE I ON] variable (CASE I =] case list [EXIT SELECT] [CASE I =| [ELSE I REMAINDER] END SELECT Purpose: Allows the execution of one set of a series of statements to be made conditional on the state of a specified variable.
Command: WHILE...WEND Syntax: WHILE condition [statements] WEND Purpose: The statements specified in the loop are executed until the condition becomes false.
Note: HiSoft Basic's Select statements and loops haiv a range of alternative forms and for additional details you should consult the HiSoft Basic manual).
Intuition, which provides the Amiga’s user interface, uses this to monitor things like window gadgets, menu and mouse interaction.
HiSoft Basic provides links to a whole range of these high-level events and mouse, menu, graphics collisions and timer events can all be generated and detected by your program.
Because the Amiga is a multitasking machine, collecting these events has to be done in a special way. The idea is that rather than looping around waiting for something to happen (during which time the program would be using processor time) your program instead has to execute a special command that puts it to sleep until something of interest happens.
This mechanism is important in multitasking systems because it enables processor time to be used more effectively. With HiSoft Basic the command which suspends program execution is called Sleep and the easiest way to illustrate the use of this instruction is to take a concrete example. The dock program from instalment HiStft BASIC Cmyilrr Editw »1.I5 I HiSoft 13 [jj]I fi:fr»Hor d«no.b« ..... PSET PSET x«2ry),fl»fblMM!
PSET x*3.y ,b»ttll0M8 LUC -STEN3,t),MblliUI cx+B MCE r ir r-H THEN p=9: DO s ir rli no J*B: DO b If mi m Dai m TO IT TO If IF x :254 WEN x:8:IHCR y LOCATE 1S,1 PRINT •has i key or dick*!
UM SEVEN! ON SLEEP Line; IS Col; 1 Hen;9368 Loop the loop with eaie three again comes to the rescue because it contained a loop which looked like this: FALSE WHILE NOT s_eilt_fl*| SLEEP VEN) On the face of it this piece of code would execute forever The reason it doesn't stems from the fact that we had previously executed these timer event statements: ON TINE* (1) 60SUB UpdateHind TINES ON These asked HiSoft Basic to deliver timer event messages to the clock program and the result was that once per second the program woke up and executed the routine which updated the clock's second hand.
Within this routine an lf-Then test was used to check whether the elapsed time had become equal to some previously identified limit like this; IF seconds=9_count THEN j_exit_flag=TAUE The result? The variables seconds and g_count are compared and, when they become equal, the statements following the Then' keyword are executed.
This forces the variable g_exit_flag to be set to Ihe value T RUE which in turn causes the termination of the While Wend event handling loop mentioned earlier.
HiSoft Basic allows blocks of commands to be used within these types of constructs but more importantly it also supports a Paul Overaa explores the reasons why most programs insist on taking a rather convoluted route from start to finish PART 5 complex case testing arrangement based on the use of Select End statements Here's a simple, but runnable, example which illustrates how Select base code could be used to select one of four different code section: PUNT "6ivt it nuibtr bttieen 1 and 4* INPUT « SELECT CASE .
CASE 1 : PRINT •you've just cxtcuttd tkt first cedt section* CASE I : PAINT “you're just executed tha second code section* CASE 5 : PAINT "you've just executed the third code section" CASE 4 ; PAINT “you've just executed the fourth code section' CASE ELSE PRINT "This is not i nuober betueen 1 end 4" ENA SELECT It's not just Intuition stvle events that HiSoft Basic can handle It is possible to open windows, create menus and do graphics as well.
In next month instalment, the last in this introductory series. I'll give you some example code and mention some of the more advanced facilities that m 4 f J HiSoft Basic provides.

Unlike the typical politician, though, Empiant shows every sign of meeting some of the pledges made for it.
W As it stands now, Empiant is a Zorro II card for the Amiga 1500 2000 (with an accelerator board), 3000, and 4000 040 that gives your Amiga the ability to run colour Macintosh software. Developers Utilities Unlimited say that Empiant will work with accelerated A500s with Zorro II adaptors like the Slingshot.
Emplant’s selling point at the moment is its ability to run Macintosh software.
However, UU tout the board as an all-purpose emulation solution.
Thev claim that modules will eventually be available which will allow you to run software designed for the IBM PC; Atari ST, TT, Falcon, and 400 800; Commodore VIC 20, 64, 128, and PET chase Macintosh ROMs from Apple repair centres.
You plug the ROMs into the Empiant and then run a utility that creates a disk- based copy of the ROM chips. You can then remove the chips and store them away for safekeeping. If you do have a Mac, you can use the included ROMinfo utility to create a disk-based copy of vour Mac's ROMs to use on the Amiga.
ONE AT A TIME Legally, though, onlv one copy of the ROMs may be in use at a time, so if you take this approach the Mac and Empiant shouldn't be in use simultaneously.
As mentioned before, vou need at least a 68020 processor. You'll also need at least 2Mb of Fast RAM (4Mb if you're running Apple's System 7), and a hard drive is strongly suggested - mandatory for System 7 use. If you think an Amiga's a pain to use with no hard drive, trv a Mac - it's torture.
If VOU have one of the new Commodore
1. 76Mb floppy drives, you can read and write high-densitv
Macintosh disks. If you only have the standard 880k drives,
you'll also need to purchase Utilities Unlimited's 04 Sybil
board, which reads real Mac disks fairly reliably, but at the
moment doesn't write to them very well.
Empiant will also read disks created by the ReadySoft A-Max emulator in standard Amiga drives, so if you have access to one of those you can use it to transfer disks tb an Emplanl-a'adable format. The high-density drive is the best solution, though, especially if you need to get back to a real Macintosh.
Once you have all the necessary rard it's time to get up and running. SimpB plug the Empiant board into a vacua Zorro slot inside your Amiga. If you'* got actual Mac ROM chips, plug them ¦ and you're ready to go, hardware-wise. I If only the software side were so earn to get up and running. The included lftj page manual (marked "preliminary 1 which is as big an understatement as call Empiant Denny Atkin keeps abreast of technology with Utilities Unlimited’s Mac-in-a-box unleashed 2001; Sinclair ZX-81 and Spectrum; Sega Genesis (the US version of the Mega Drive); Super Nintendo; GameBoy; and
others, Of course, you should never purchase a product on the basis of promised future capabilities, but if even a few of those emu- m File Edit Simulation Windows Disasters_(S lations come to be it will be a wonderful bonus - and a fantastic way to show off Vour Amiga! Although the Mac emulation requires at least a 68020, Drew says some of the other emulations will work with the 68000.
To get started with Empiant, you’ll need a set of 256k operating system ROMs from a Macintosh II, llx, Ilex, or SE 30; and Macintosh System 6 Or System 7 disks.

Here you tell Emplant how much memory it can use, what kind of video display you want to emulate, where vour ROM image file is located, and which Amiga device's should be used for Mac storage. You can allocate some or all of your Fast RAM for Emplant use.
FAST CRASH There's another chance for a crash here, though The Emplant video driver (which can use up to 800k on ACA machines) needs some Fast RAM as well, and this number isn't included in the free memory totals on the memory allocation screen. To be safe, leave at least 1Mb of Fast RAM free.
The final task in setting up Emplant is allocating hard drive storage. There are two options here.

SCSI connector. If you use Amiga hard drive partitions, they're limited to 32Mb in size, although you can have multiple partitions. Drives connected to the SCSI inter- faa' can be of any size. For this review I created two 32Mb partitions on my Amiga 4000's IDE drive.
Once your hard drive is configured, you're ready to install the Mac software.
Start the emulation software and your speedy, colourful Amiga screen becomes a black-and-white Mac screen asking for a disk.
Plop the Macintosh hard drive utilities disk that comes with the System software into your fioppv drive and the little smiling Mac icon appears. Follow the instructions on the screen to format vour Mac hard drive partitions, install the System software, and you're ready to go!
After everything's set up, re-boot your Amiga and start the emulation again. That big metal box on your desk now holds not only an Amiga, but the functional equivalent of a Macintosh lid as well (or a Mac Quadra if you're lucky enough to have an A4000 040).
MULTITASKING But best of all, unlike the earlier A-Max emulator, you can run both Amiga and Mac programs at the same time* If your Amiga is equipped with the ECS chipset, then you can run Mac software in black and white, four colours, or 16 colours. If you've got an AGA system, then you can run in 256-colour mode.
The highest-colour mode on your particular Amiga model does slow down quite a bit, since your Amiga's graphics chips are fighting with the Emplant software for access to memory.
Still, 16-colour mode is acceptable on ECS Amigas, and blazinglv fast on AGA machines. The latest software ¦¦¦i® update supports the display database on 2.1 and 3.0 Amigas, so you can open in any mode, including 800 x 600 J and 1.280x512. J Although screen updates J are a hit slower than the equivalent real Mac, actual processing speed is very com- parable to the real thing. This is because the Mac uses the same Motorola processors as the Amiga, so ?

Note the balloon help Moc men can have everything explained to them E M U L ATI O N there's no translation step necessary like there is for software-based IBM emulators.
An indicator of how well - and how fast
- the emulation works is that I was able tO run Macintosh games
on my Amiga. Falcon MC, a colour Mac version of the classic
flight simulator, ran faster on my A4000 running (implant in
16-colour mode than on a real Mac lid at work.
Refresh Rite: aJyj Velocity's Spectre Supreme, a 3D arcade game similar to Stellar 7, ran at bla .ing speed under (implant. And I was even able to play against another player on a real Macintosh using an AppleTalk connection!
NO TROUBLES Compatibility is excellent. Every Mac program I tried on Emplant, including the games listed above and heavy-duty applications such as Adobe PhotoShop and Illustrator, worked with no problems.
I also tried a number of public domain and shareware programs, once again with no troubles. I was even able to use Apple File Exchange to read an MS-DOS disk in my Amiga's DFO: drive.
According to Utilities Unlimited, the only programs they’ve found that won't work under Emplant are Apple s DiskCopv program (which talks directly to the Mac hardware) and a couple of Microsoft applications, including Word.
Apparently Microsoft break a few of Apple's programming guidelines, and UU are working on patching those problems so even misbehaving programs like Word will work. Stereo sound is available if you’re running System 6, but the emulation is silent under System 7 due to changes in Things change constantly Emplant is still a product under development. When it First shipped in late 1992, it wasn't ready - the emulation was unstable, and it didn't even support hard drives.
As this review is written the company are up to v2.5. and Emplant finally shows signs of stability and maturity However. Utilities Unlimited are Still hard at work on improving the Macintosh emulation Among features planned for future updates are support for the sound digitiser built onto the Emplant board: Amiga-to-Mac file transfer and support for 24-bit video boards including Retina. Rainbow II and III DCTV. Resolver Domino. ImpactVision- 24, Vivid-24. And Firecracker 24 UU say that OpalVision. Merlin, and Harlequin support may be provided eventually as well, pending support from the
manufacturers Updates of the Mac emulation software are available free of charge on various online networks, from UU s BBS. And from Emplant dealers Fflrnat: Process: how the OS handles sound. UU plan to address this problem in a future update.
The Emplant board is available equipped with two Macintosh-compatible serial ports, which are necessary if vou plan to use a modem or printer with your Mac software, or if vou want to conned Emplant to an AppleTalk network.
The ports are hardware-compatible with those on a real Mac, so you can even attach a Mac Midi interface to them for use with music software.
Note that the Mac System software only supports ImageWriter and LaserWriter (PostScript) printers, so if you've got another model you’ll have to purchase a separate Mac driver for your printer - unlike A-Max, Emplant doesn't provide ImageWriter emulation for other printer models.
As I mentioned, you can run Macintosh and Amiga programs simultaneously. This is the best way to get multitasking on the Mac - actually. Amiga users will find the This panel controls the screen refresh rate while Emplant s rvnning Fomat: 4 Compatibility is excellent. Every Mac program I tried worked with no problems.
Mac idea of multitasking simultaneously laughable and frustrating.
MultiFinder under System 6 and the Finder under Svstem 7 do allow vou to run more than one program, but many applications aren't multitasking-friendly and will block out other programs for long periods of time.
Also, the Mac operating system busv- waits, which means that even when Emplant is sitting there doing nothing except displaying the Macintosh interface, it's taking up about 40 per cent of your processor time.
You can adjust Emplant's system priority 50 that it takes up less time when it's just running in the background.
The emulated Mac's screen is a standard Amiga screen which can be flipped and pulled down. Screenshots for this article were saved with a standard Amiga screen grabber.
Unfortunately, as of this writing UU still haven't implemented any sort of file transfer software, so the two brains in your Amiga can't talk to each other.
To transfer files from the Mac side to the Amiga side I was forced to connect the Amiga's serial port to one of the Emplant Multiple personality UU plans to emulate a number ot 16-bit and 8-bit platforms using Emplant hardware. Most likety next n1 is the IBM 386 486 emulation.
Although UU had indicated eart that they might make an adaptor to an Intel processor onto the Em; board, they now believe that they achieve 486 speed on the A4000 software translation only.
Although many knowledges Amigans are sceptical of this daim, same folks also said there was no you could create a Mac emulator would multitask with the Amiga.
The game console emulations wi !
Handled by an adaptor that attaches the ROM sockets and will add a tridge connector that you can plug cartridges into. Nintendo and Sega a bit lawsuit-happy, though, so I II surprised if this capability ever makes I to market.
All Emplant emulation modules multitask with Amiga programs.
Serial ports With a null-modern cable use terminal programs on each side move the files.
UU have confirmed that transfer ware should be available soon that allow direct copying of files from A partitions to Mac partitions.
As mentioned earlier, Emplant is av able with optional SCSI and serial por On the Emplant disk you'll find a driv called Empser.device which allows you use the Emplant serial portion the Anugj side when the Mac emulation softwM i s n running.
EXPANSION Although it wasn't ready as of this wrij ing, UU also promise a driver soon th4 will let you set up Amiga partitions ol devices attached to the Fmplant SCSI port Another promised driver will let yoti plug four 128k SRAM chips into Emplant board, add a battery, and haul 512k of auto-boot, batten- backed-up RAJH storage. So Emplant is more than an emulator - it’s also a multi-function expansion card for your Amiga.
Is Emplant worth it? If you absolutriyj need to run professional-quality softw such as Quark Xpress and Adobe Photoshop that's not available for th Amiga At £255 for the basic board and about £150 for a set of 256k Mac ROMvl you get the capabilities of a £1.701 Macintosh.
And although the Mac is an odd machine, it’s much easier for Amiga user* to make this transition than to the PC Even if UU never deliver on the additional!

The Amiga’s first plug-in synth offers 16-bit Midi sound from
inside the machine.
Paul Austin auditions... Ithough the Amiga has always won « great praise for its internal jwund, the ever increasing popularity of Midi and CD has meant that audio stan- lards are much higher than they used to W - especially for those involved in pre* lertation, video and of course music.
With the increasing complexity and
• ophistication of multimedia in general, Midi support is
becoming the norm rather fcm the exception, and it's this
window in
• * market that The One Stop Music Shop Ita been designed to
exploit.
As you've probably guessed, TOSMS is Iktty unique in the world of Midi mod- ¦ks - rather than connection via a stan- iifd Midi interface, the card slides into a *TTo slot offering stereo RCA outs plus a built -in twin Midi I O port at the rear.
Free port The question is, whv bother? With tin* S' range of modules and kevboards on fce market, what's the big advantage in Wvrng an internal version?
Well, for the studio musician the answer is none at all. However for multi- ¦edia exploits, freeing the serial port has distinct advantages, as indeed it does for DTY, which often depends on additional connected via the serial.
Obviously with the aforesaid port free, ousting serial-based production tools are
• ill available which can then be combined with TOSMS via Arexx,
SMPTE or the excellent multimedia options available B&PPro or
Superjam.
If you don't happen to own any of the aforementioned software the hardware can still bo used, however this will require connection of the card's second Midi connector to a standard Midi interface, effectively making the Amiga the world's biggest ever PSU.
In short, running TOSMS without Blue Ribbon software means much of the appeal of the unit is sacrificed, primarily due to the occupied serial port and, of course, the lack of any direct links to the of its biggest attractions providing the most approachable editing environment available for any Midi module.
As you'd expect from Blue Ribbon, the interface is attractive, intuitive and easy to manipulate with the main thrust being aimed at the manipulation of the ?
Within the new B&PPro2 which provides links to various 24-bit boards, Scala, genlocks - the list goes on and on.. Once safelv installed, complete with connections to an amplifier and preferably a compatible master kevboard, you’re in business - assuming you’re the owner of either a version of B&Pipes, The One Stop Music Shop plete sound editor designed specifically for the Proteus Sound Engine at the heart of the TOSMS.
In addition to the essential and excellent editor - which 1 11 return to later - the utilities include a Loop-Back option allowing direct control of the module via a mother keyboard.
Once active, any channel or patch changes are passed directly to the card allowing the auditioning of sounds without the need for on-line sequencing software.
In a blatant attempt to capitalise on the card's multi- media potential, a dedicated One-Stop Midi Player comes as part of the package, allowing any previously recorded song to be k»aded-up either singularly or as part of a complete set and then played back at the click of a button. Mo channel changes, no patch selection, just a simple load and play.
As well as a point-and-click interface, the player also boasts full Arexx support, a feature which is ably demonstrated by a demo provided as part of the software support.
This Arexx link again illustrates the card's multimedia pretentions allowing any Arexx-compatible software to address the card, loading and playing complete works as part of a wider presentation.
An added bonus for the already impressive player is the General Midi standard adopted by the module. In effect this means that any Midi composition designed on a similar GM module will play back faultlessly, as both modules by default share common sounds at any specific patch number. As mentioned earlier, TOSMS comes complete with its own sound editor which in my opinion is one software in the form of default bands and assorted tools and plug-in accessories.
With the hardware hidden within the bowels of an A1500 or whatever, control obviously has to be software-oriented, and as a consequence the disk accompanying the hardware contains not only assorted utilities for managing the card but a com- A close up of the main edit window In concert with thf twin primary and secondary sound sources The Impressive sound building power of the link option alongside the If Os and crossfade control The subtle side of soursd creation OS all the elements blend to create the ultimate patch card’s primary and secondary sound sources.
These two elements are the key to the E-MU Proteus SoundEngine allowing the combination Ilf any two of the 213 sampled waveforms stored Within the ROMs at the heart of this award-winning svnth.
Assuming your new patch or bank of patches are finally complete, the next task is to save it. Obviously the new sound can't be*written to the ROM and if the Amiga happons to be switched off ail your hard work will be lost As a result, either individuals or entire banks can be saved to disk and loaded back into the synth as required - temporarily overwriting the defaults.
Obviously for performance use constantly loading the editor and subsequently the necessary voices would be cumbersome at best.
As a consequence yet another utility allows an entire user-defined sound set to be loaded by simply clicking on a start-up icon on the Workbench or alternatively placing the appropriate command in either the Wbstartup drawer or startup-sequence.
At its most simplistic, sound generation is simply a matter of selecting two complementary sounds which then combine to produce the new tone.
As you can see from the screenshots, each instrument source comes complete with a selection of slider controlled parameters to adjust the tuning, volume, pan position, starting point and the relative delay of the component sound within the overall sound.
Envelopes In addition, each of the components has its own amplitude envelope providing complete control over the Attack, hold, decay and release of the chosen sound - with anv changes being auditioned instantly via a miniature keyboard with chorus and sound reversal close at hand with a simple click on the appropriate button.
Assuming the new sound is roughly to your taste, the fine tuning can begin courtesy of the most ingenious element within the editor.
In order to blend the component instruments within the new sound, adjusting the volume within each instrument window will be more than adequate.
However if a more dramatic combination is required, the editor's crossfade option has to be the next port of call.
From here you can define exactly how the two sounds interact, either over time or according to the relative strength of the key depression. For example, at its most simple a crossfade could start with one sound and gradually evolve into the next using the speed and direction of your choice.
Alternatively, when combined with the real-time and velocity modulation options the crossfade can produce a split keyboard, or perhaps a sound that uses one tone below a certain depression strength while switching to the second, and perhaps more dynamic, sound when struck more firmly.
Assuming tone generation, mixing and cross fading is complete, we can safely move to the penultimate duet in the editing department, namely the twin LFOs, or Low Frequency Oscillators that dominate the left side of the main edit window.
Five waveforms are available within each LFO, including sawtooth, sine, triangle, square and random with each LFO applying its particular selection to add old favourites such as vibrato, modulation and tremolo to the rapidly evolving sound.
If required, the effects produced by the LFO duet can be combine with other features within the editor such as real-time and key velocity modulation to apply the desired feature over time and according to the strength of key depression, Although rather complex initially, both forms of modulation and their relation to the LFOs do become clearer with a little experimentation, With the duet chosen and assorted parameters applied you'd think the new sound would be complete, but there's one last twist in the tail. Courtesy of yet another window hidden in the upper right corner of the main window,
even more tinkering awaits.
Once opened, the Link option reveals a series of sliders allowing an additional three existing presets to be appended to the one already being edited.
As a result it’s possible to build really big sounds via a multiple preset combination. However, it must be stressed that using multiple presets to build a new voice does have its drawbacks.
Just like the original Proteus, the Amiga variant - like most sound modules - has a maximum 32-note polvphonv which means that no more than 32 notes or voices can be played simultaneously.
As a result, adding up to four presets to a single note means polyphony can suffer quite dramatically, especially if the aforesaid note is played as part of a triad chord thereby instantly burning 12 of the 32 voices on just one chord and leaving precious few for the rest of the composition.
Keyboard splits However, this doesn't mean the feature is useless, and in fact it used wisely with perhaps two or three presets and thoughtful application any voice and thereby Sortg can really improve.
In addition, all the component presets can be defined to play between a specific pitch allowing multiple keyboard splits with up to four voices spread over a single patch location.
On the plus side the accompanying software is excellent offering all the utilities and editing options you could ask for.
In addition, the card fits seamlessly into the overall Blue Ribbon range with input and output tools for B&PPro, an accessory version of the editor for on-line editing, a pre-defined plug-in band for Superjam
vl. l plus total compatibility with Patchmvister - Blue Ribbon's
very own librarian software. When you add all of the above to
the board's obvious multimedia talents, and probably one of
the best sound-to-noise ratios available from module, the
overall combination unbeatable.
I Saving your creations However TOSMS isn't without faults. Firstly the preset tones can sound!
Little dated in relation to the latest stag 10 t J dalone modules, primarily because ROMs inside are from the very first gen* ation of the SoundEngine which is now its third revision.
Addition Although the ROM sounds are a httifl disappointing the situation cou1* have been easily resolved by the addi of the one thing that the module lac more than anything else - a built-in digi reverb.
Almost all modern stand-alone rt C ules come with reverb as standard but ak the TOSMS isn’t one of them, resulting a very dry overall sound.
Even with the problems mention TOSMS remains a viable and porta solution to the problem of incorporate quality sound into multimedia prod tions. It's pretty unlikely the card find its way into the average studio for those Involved in DTV and multi: dia in general it's worth consideration.

Passing the disks around the office brought a variety of reactions, from pleasant surprise to outright embarrassment (the latter from the Lionel Richie fan), so there seems to be a fair amount on each to suit most tastes. My own favourite inclusions are Hey Jude, In the Midnight Hour and Dream Weaver, and though I can't play any of them yet. I’ll be having a damned good try.
Installing the songs is simply a matter of double clicking on the disk's lastall icon and following instructions.
When installed, the songs Song files to breath new life into the Miracle keyboard, and Imagine gets a revamp. Stevie Kennedy reports same level as the song.
Any attempt to jump straight into one of the more difficult ones Ls therefore doomed to failure as the budding pianist runs into unfamiliar chords and techniques he or she has never before had to use. Luckily, those clever Software Toolworks chappies have built a certain degree of idiot-prwfness into tiw collection.
SKILL LEVELS Each and every song comes in two flavours, easv and difficult. The easy songs are usually pitched at around level 15 in Miracle terms (less than half way to the final level 40), and the difficult versions at a knuckle-busting level 35 or beyond.
It Ls therefore possible for the beginner to leam his or her favourite tunes while still on the nursery slopes, then progress to the black runs with the development of either sufficient masteiy or enough blind arrogance.
1 had a crack at the easv level 15 version of Hey Jude and found it to be playable, though not exactly a version Mr McCartney would have been proud of, so there's hope for the rest of the collection.
Overall, the Song Collection disks are a "must buy" for any Miracle owner and enhance the wider appeal of the whole ensemble to prospective new students of the ivories.
The disks are available from Mindscape (0444 246333) and cost £49.95 each, a price which is pretty steep for a single floppy, but which presumably takes into account the fact that the 40 original titles all have owners and all of them take a small cut.
Will be accessible to Miracle software, but only as additional practice pieces.
Extra songs (of which there are over 200 on the original disks) can be played in the practice room using either left, right, or both hands at a user-defined tempo until a degree of competence is reached, but there is none of the superb tuition associated with Miracle's set lessons.
This to play a song from the new collection it is a prerequisite that the user progresses through the original lessons to the tor for creating landscapes, and (at long last) much improved anti-aliasing, One area in which Impulse have so far remained silent is animation, and there is no way of knowing if Imagine 3.0 will be able to match Real 3D's advanced animation techniques such as the new collision detection feature.
Watch this space for more updates as they happen.
Imagine 3.0 The review of Real 3D v2 in this issue is guaranteed to build speculation and expectation for the release of the next version of its closest rival.
Imagine 3.0 is due to see the light of day later in the summer and promises to include enough features to ensure hostilities on the ray tracing front recommence with their old vigour.
Developments in the commercial world which have been reflected in Real 3D v2 include modelling tools such as twist, taper, bend, and shear, all of which will appear in Imagine 3.0, In addition, the inclusion of brush and texture "tacking" - the process of assigning brushes easily to individual polygons rather than entire objects * should make complex objects much easier to create.
Jointed objects, which have always been rather unwieldy, could become a thing of the past with Imagine 3.0's new bones feature. Working in much the same way as skeletal splines, bones will make human or animal-like figures more natural and give the user much more control over the way they move.
Other major new features include real-time 3D animation preview. AGA support, an enhanced forms editor, a new terrain edi- indscape's Miracle keyboard, reviewed some months ago, attracted rave reviews in this hi ocst other magazines because it was hto use, extremely well thought out, and h capable of teaching idiots like me to r the piano.
The original review. I’ve been pro- ; haltingly through the songs supplied the package, but recently have failed to up with practice because many of the i are less than contemporary, lor example, the ultimate lesson which, 1 to add, I'm still some way off, focuses l Handel’s Water Music. Now, I wouldn’t I lo offend our classical-loving readers by ; aspersions on this piece's attraction to modem ear, but it's not exactly toe-tap* ; stuff, is it?
Kever fear! To the rescue of the jaded ¦sical palate come the Miracle Song ffaction volumes one and two, each disk led with 40 songs from a variety of ts, some of whom are actually still g- The net has been cast fairly wide to make the numbers, and a quick scan of the disks confirm the presence of songs as diverse the gut-churningly soppy Hello from Richie and perhaps the ultimate indict- t of American culture, Rhinestone Taking the collection as a whole, some of songs seem to have been included so that can practice a tune for Christmas to old aunty Gladys knows the words.

Competition B The package has never really been aggressively marketed in the UK although elsewhere in the Amiga world there are a great many satisfied Blitz users. With the demise of the original AmigaBasic, and the resultant gap in the Basic interpreter compiler market, a lot of alternative Basics have come to the fore, including HiSoft and GFA Basics.
Paul Overaa puts the latest version of Acid Software’s Blitz Basic 2 compiler under the spotlight. The results are quite literally stunning Of late, however, it has been Amos that has stolen most of the limelight, but there is little doubt that the latest update of Blitz Basic, called Blitz Basic 2 - or Blitz 2 for short - will also make its mark on the Amiga Basic scene.
Blitz Basic 2. Like its predecessor, can produce incredibly fast code - easily fast enough for most commercial games writers. As with most Basics it offers its own
* et of Amiga-specific commands although, having said that, quite
a few of its "main core" Basic commands follow, with one or two
quite surprising exceptions, the usual Grand graphics On the
graphics front, Blitz 2 scores very highly indeed. The language
provides the programmer with a whole range of easy-to-use
high-level objects including Intuition event- onented mouse,
menu, gadget, window, and screen support.
Also on offer are objects which concern themselves with sprites, bitmaps, palettes, shapes, Intuifonts and Blitzfonts (special 5x8 fonts for fast Bitmap text) Incidentally, Blitz 2 also allows the use of both IFF samples and Soundtracker Noisefracker song modules. One of the nice things about the overall Blitz 2 object approach is that all objects tend to be handled in a similarly consistent fashion - this help to make programs easier to both write and read.
De facto standard set by Microsoft Basic, When you get to the more esoteric goodies, Blitz 2 has its own way of doing things but of course in this respect it is no different from any of the alternative Basic packages.
Talking of packages, the new Blitz 2 offering consists of three disks - Program, Library and Examples - plus an assortment of manuals. Blitz magazines and soon.
EXTRA GAMES The review package also provided a couple of other disks containing some Blitz 2 public domain games, but to be honest it wasn't made clear whether these are now part of the Blitz 2 package Or were just thrown in as extras on this occasion.
The main documentation is spilt into two parts, namely an A4-sized reference manual, and an A3-sized user guide. The reference manual is clearly written, dearly laid out, and very adequate.
One of the things that I particularly liked is that commands and functions are grouped according to use, rather than simply being thrown together as a straight alphabetical keyword commands listing.
This makes the manual easy to use and it's a doddle for example to locate all the string functions, or all of the program flow control statements, offered by the language. There are plenty of examples of use (one for almost every command) although the main tutorial-style discussions are reserved for the user guide which does an equally reasonable job at providing an overview and gentle introduction to the language.
To enter and compile Basic programs you need a text editor. Blitz 2 comes with an editor called Ted which acts as both an interface to the Blitz 2 compiler and as a standalone text editor.
Ted is a fast, reliable editor which has all of the usual types of project and block loading and saving options. There's mouse controlled cut and paste and search replace facilities which include case sensitive insensitive search toggles.
As with most such editors, Ted is fairly average looking display-wise but it's prettv obvious that some thought has gone into this offering and in use some nice touches can be found.
HIGHLIGHTS You can, for instance, reset the current directory from Blitz 2's file requester - this is useful when additional files need to be loaded as a program is run.
Another feature, especially useful for structured programmers, is the Amiga-A combination which automatically highlights the current line and any lines above or below it which are indented by the same number of spaces.
The compiler itself is called directly from the editor menu and provides all the usual types of user-definable options for ¦ REVIEW SCREEN WINDOW GADGET PLANNER E1UIND0UZ= |test only 11 e s t only |test only |test only The Intultooli utility In cut Ion Anyone who has ever done any C programming on the Amiga knows how important the C structure Is. Structures are complex variables which allow the programmer to bundle together sets of use-related variables and treat them as a single unit.
One of the most interesting additions to Blitz 2 is that the compiler now supports NewType variables which to all intents and purposes are Blitz 2-styte C structure definitions. Supposing, for example, that you wanted to define a unit for storing details of appointments held in a computerised diary With Blitz 2 you could do it like this: Building structures file: ftfHider.src if Mrs Ik* sNlMMMWMf spall Thw spall-1 ¦fir k-1 TO 100
* **** OWILflB ***** Mltr Off ror k*l Tq 16 If k07 Lc-i Dund

38."scao«r.sprilts" iM 1 Colwn l LdrQest Kcw (k) Ted the editor
- tlmple but effettire HWW.ippointMnt tiw.q day,b lonth.b year
.b detailsS w Ktinpt Once this type of unit has been defined
variables can be assigned to it by using the NewType name as a
suffix., eg example.appomtment. and from this point on
individual members of the unit can be manipulated using the
backslash ( ) character e«a«pleWear=9J Pnnt tia«ple yt8f
NewTypes are extremely useful and as well as being able to
include other NewTypes within a NewType definition it is also
possible to include arrays.
Some more good news for the serious programmer is that direct support for linked list operations has now been implemented.
Lists are dimensioned in much the same way as arrays but can be manipulated with special commands and functions such as ResetList. Addltemf), AddLastf). NextltemQ and so on.
If, for example you wished to create a list of 30 of the appointment structures just illustrated you could do it like this: Dip ti$ t June.appoirt»er-t(30) and from that point on you could use any or all of Blitz 2's List manipulation functions on that NewType variable set! The Blitz example disk has some extremely good illustrations of how lists of graphic object NewTypes can be created and manipulated.
Another facility that Blitz 2 supports, and which though not usually found will be beloved by users with some C experience, is the use of * pointer operator. More C style magic is provided with support for manifest constants, conditional compilation, Blitz 2 macro definitions and the use of Resident files that contain pre-compiied fists of NewTypes. Macros and constants.
If this is not enough the manual mentions that facilities that allow programmers to link Blitz 2 programs to C code modules win be available in the near future.
Including debugging info, minimising code size, creating icons for executables and so on.
In addition to this, the compiler supports an array of control directives that when placed within the programs themselves control such things as mode selection, file inclusion and error message generation, Like most Basic compilers Blitz 2 can report two types of errors - compile time errors which cause the compiler to stop and display a diagnostic message on the screen, and run time errors.
To help with detection of the latter, Blitz 2 provides a run-time debugger that, if enabled, will be activated automatically when, and if, such errors occur.
It's possible to trace program execution, switch between debugging and program displays, and perform things like expression evaluation. Trace options include both backwards and forward single stepping and of course the ability to step backwards through the code that was executed prior to a break gives the programmer much better than average chances of seeing why the error occurred in the first place.
ASSEMBLER Blitz 2 also provides other tools including the Intuitools, shape maker, and map edit utilities, and... an assembler.
Like all Basics, Blitz 2 has areas where it has its own flavour and one of these is in the way variable types are declared. Blitz 2 supports six different types of primitive variables - five number types plus the usual string variables.
Numeric variables can be byte (8-bit), word (16-bit), long word (32-bit), or floating point and there's also a q (quick) number type which offers a two-byte fixed point format for fast manipulation of decimal numbers.
Where Blitz 2 differs from other Basics is in its type notation • number variables have to be given letter-based suffixes so whereas in, say, HiSoft Basic you'd might write a 16-bit integer called loop_count as loop_count% you'd need to use loop_count.w with Blitz2.
Although it is admittedly easy enough to convert from one form to the other it is.
...blisteringly fast and offers some stunning Amiga-orientated graphics to minimise potential portability problems, probably a good idea to instead use Blitz2's DefType command. This allows you to predeclare variable types and so avoid the use of explicit letter-based suffixes.
Surprisingly Blitz Basic does not recognise REM as a remark indicator - it uses the semicolon instead (a common 68000 assembler convention). To my mind this is plain stupidly in the world of Basic but to be honest it doesn't really cause any serious problems once you are aware of the fact.
Even when physically converting files written using other Basics it us only a matter of globally replacing all REMs with semicolons!
One things that is likely to attract many of the more advanced Amiga programmers to Blitz 2 is the fact that an in-line 68000 assembler is provided.
OK, so 68k coding isn't everybody's cup of tea, but it's nice to know that these facilities are there if, or when, vou need them.
The good news for most coders is that even without dropping into 68k code, Blitz Basic 2, like the original Blitz Basic, is blisteringly fast and it offers some shinning Amiga-oriented graphics facilities.
These include super-smooth scrolling and dual-playfield tricks available using Blitz Basic's Blitz Mode command, which allows programs to suspend normal multitasking and take over the whole machine.
While many of the Blitz 2 display tricks can be achieved by anyone (including beginners) there is no shortage of provision for the more advanced user and if you fancy a Basic whose options include commands for things like copper list manipulation and so on, then you need look no further than Blitz2.
I've certainly been very impressed with the enhancements provided by Blitz Basic 2, especially with the C-style langu extensions, but when I first encountf the Blitz way of doing certain operate my first reaction was "some of these thi may cause problems for the new coder'.
Within hours of using the package f| changed my mind and now suspect thfl because the overall size of the languif (even with its extensions) is smaller alternative oflerings. Blitz Basic 2 is g*i to be less difficult to get to grips with thfl many other Basics.
Certainly even novice programmers m going to be able to produce a lot of ckM effects very easily indeed. Needless to the more experienced coders will find Blitz 2 offers stunning possibilities- It deserves to do well., but obviotaH acquiring this success is likely to be somrj thing of an uphill struggle given that Amo*, HiSoft Basic and CFA Basic have already] captured most of the potential market.
Whether current Basic programmer* will’swap to Blitz 2 remains to be seen, but it may well draw its support from other areas. There are, for instance, an awful Id] of serious C assembler coders who cur-| renfly tend to be unimpressed with Basic, you fall into this category my advice is i have a look at Blitz 2 because 1 suspect that it mav change your mind. - E3 SYSTEM ESSENTIALS V I I IOVV Kt-i-nminriulnl RAM RAM Ease of use: 8 Implementation: 9 Value for money: 8 Overall: 8 Ladbroke Computing international are one ol the

TECHNICAL HELP!
Old hard drive My son has an Amiga 500 Plus and has just recently acquired a hard drive with extra memory and power supply from a defunct A500.
Problem is, the person who gave my ton the drive did not give instructions on
* ow to install it and unfortunately has smce emigrated to
Singapore I therefore ask your advice and. If possible. Full
instructions for installation.
Also, as it is a “used but good* hard dnve. How does my son de-install it in Mure if it fails?
Are there any manuals available deal* flg with hard drives, both the hardware and software side, which cover topics such as creating directories, copying Wes. And so on?
AMIGA COMPUTING ADVICE SERVICE I have heard that some games will not run from a hard drive. Please explain why and whether there is any indication when buying the game that they will not run.
Mon tors, broken disk drives and poorly power supplies tax our experts in the definitive Amiga technical clinic lastty, do you know of any reputable companies supplying shareware or PD software specifically for the A5QQ Pius or even any bulletin boards specifically for the Amiga? I have access to a PC-based modem at work. Are there any utilities to convert IBM games to run on the Amiga?
D Lewis, Caerphilly Hmm ... a nervous first time Amiga hard dnvo owner if ever I've seen one. Luckily, as the hard drive has already been used on an Amiga, you might have very little work to do E3 Assuming the dnve has not been damaged. Plug it in. Turn on (first the drive power, then the Amiga power) and wait until boot-up. With luck, the hard drive will kick in and you won't have to bother with formatting or any tiresome partitioning process.
If the dnve fails to boot, check to see if d has a game switch and. If so. That it is in fie boot position. If this pans out. You may have to locate the dnve's manufacturers for software with which to format it.
As you failed to mention the drive make or model. I can t help you on this score, so we'll assume the drive works.
Manuals do exist for hard drives in general, but they are more often than not a bit technical and concentrate on the hardware side almost exclusively. A good general AmigaDOS guide from Bruce Smith Books (0923 694355) would be of far more use.
Finally, games which require a futl 1Mb RAM in which to run will often fail to run from hard drive because the act of booing a Workbench uses as much as 200k.
If the hard drive comes with its own RAM expansion, this should not be a problem, but the insistence of Amiga software companies on disk protection which makes it impossible to install a game to hard drive will cause you much more gnef Good luck!
Out of print I have an Amiga A500 Plus and a Commodore MPS 1270 printer.
5 The problem is, I can't get the printer to work. I've tried several books but with no success. Please give me a step- by-step guide on what to do. I'm desperate.
David King, Atirritant Wff* Er... at the risk of sounding facetious, have you read the manual which ¦ * ¦ comes with the printer? You should follow the standard troubleshooter steps such as making sure the printer is plugged in, switched on, and a suitable cable is connecting it to the Amiga.
Diskfont dabbling a I have an A500 Plus and an Amstrad NC100 Notepad which I bought after reading the review in your Amiga Market Shop Window section. The only drawback in what is otherwise a fine machine is the non-backlit screen.
I have Protext v4.3 from the January CoverDisk. So I decided to invest In the Lapcat software and cable and now the Amiga can talk to the Notepad and vice versa.
However, on loading Lapcat my system tells me “Error opening library DiskfonLlibrary v37 ". Strangely enough, if you click on Abort, the program carries on and runs perfectly well.
I rang Arnor at Peterborough where I purchased the Lapcat software and they told me that the program doesn't call for this library. He said it must be a problem with the Workbench.
What does my Amiga want? This is most annoying every time you load up Lapcat, which is not a self-booting disk and must be loaded from Workbench. What can I do?
David Langley. Cambridge You can check the Libs drawer on your Workbench disk for a start. It fiM should contain a copy of the Diskfont.Library and if it doesn't, you should Mkk copy it to the drawer immediately. Other than this. I can’t figure out what might be wrong.
The copy of Lapcat we use in the office has no problems on our Workbench 2.04 and 3.0 machines, so there is no bug in the software. In the last analysis, the problem is merely annoying and not fatal, so you can at least live with it if you need to.
Next, make sure that the printer is on-line by checking the front panel for the indicator light which is present on evety printer. It might fv labelled "ready", but as long as it is acliiY, your printer is ready lo receive data.
If all this is taken care of and the printer has paper, boot from Workbench, open a Shell, and type COPT S:STARTUP-SE8UEHCE TO PUT: As long as you have some sort of printer driver selected in your prefs settings (generic mil do to begin with), the printer should now reel off your slartup-sequence. If it doesn't, go back to the beginning and check alt the above steps, and if your printer is still not working takif it hick for a refund!
CDTV queries I have an A 500 with 512k fast RAM and 512k chip RAM and I am considering buying the A570 CD-ROM drive now that the price has gone down to £150. However, I have some questions before 1 buy:
1. How do I boot up CDTV software?
Does the Amiga boot using a CDTV-style Kickstart?
2. When using Workbench, does the A57Q count as a device like an
external floppy or a hard drive?
3. Dries the A570 have a SCSI through port so I can fit a hard
drive or extra memory?
4. How will I be able to hook up my Amiga to a hi-fi so that I
can play Cds using my amp and speakers?
Finally, one of my main reasons for getting the A570 is the fact that I buy a lot of PD, so the CDPD collections could be of great use to me. However, I thought the idea of PD was that people could only charge for the disc copying costs. Surely this is less than £19.99?
Iim McKenzie, Old Stevenage rlti answer to your questions, I should start by pointing out that use of the A570 requires 1Mb chip RAM and Kickstart 2.04, so please bear in mind that you'll have to upgrade your machine before buying the drive.
1. With the A570 in place, the Amiga will boot cither from the
internal floppy, if it contains a disk, or from the CD.
2. Yes, the ASK) appears as CDO:, and if a nen-prehxted disc is
Wing used its contents can be accessed using the usual
AmigaDOS commands.
3. The A570 has no SCSI or DMA through lK'irt. So you’ll have to
make sure that you can buy a hard drive or RAM expansion with
a through port, then connect the A570 OH the end. You'll have
a very long A500, but it will be a rather powerful one.
4. To enable the playing of CD music through external speakers,
the A570 has stereo audio out phono sockets in the rear
casing, so it is a simple matter of hooking the drive up to
your amplifier's line in to play audio Cds as normal.
Your comments on the price of PD CD discs should really be redirected to Almathera Systems, producers of the CDPD collection.
I'm sure they'll be happy to answer any queries you hair about buying 600 PD disks for CIO.

¦ TECHNICAL HELP Screen trouble I have recently upgraded to an A4000 030 (am I be your friend?
• Ed) and 1 am experiencing some compatibility problems with
serious programs and hardware that 1 had expected to work
correctly. Can you help?
Q 1 cannot get Amos vl.3 to run in DBLPAL mode, even with mode promo* tion on. Is there an easy solution and does Amos Professional have the same problem?
I am also experiencing problems with my 16in NEC 4D multisync monitor as I am not able to display a full width Workbench screen, even when using overscan.
This monitor's horizontal sync is from 30kHz to 57kHz and displays a very stable picture when VGA only is activated, but almost an inch of viewing width on both sides of the Workbench backdrop is inaccessible The monitor worked fine with my ICD flicker fixed A500 and utilised all the available viewing area.
Your recent articles and reviews fln monitors make no mention of such problems with VGA or multisyncs. Can you offer any advice? Also, your A1200 and A4000 articles mention that you need multisync monitors which horizontally sync from 15kHz to 75kHz to display all the new resolutions, but with the exception of Commodore's 1960 monitor, only 30kHz minimum sync rate VGA monitors have been reviewed.
Brother bother Ql am using an old Brother HR-40 with my A500 Plus and have found it to be very reliable. However. I am thinking of replacing it in the near future and I have been looking at the new Brother HJ-100i.
Will I be able to use the HJ-100i with my Amiga? Resident emulations are IBM ProPrinter X24e and Epson LQ550. And the interlace is Centronics parallel, which I assume is the same as my HR-40. It's only a mono printer, but being an mk|et I imagine I should be able to use fonts which I can’t at the moment.
I have seen the HJ-100i advertised at £209 including the connection lead and VAT. Which seems a very reasonable pnee for an inkjet and would be ideal for my needs (letters. Cvs, and so on). I have never seen it reviewed in your magazine, so information about this printer is scarce.
I would be grateful for any advice that points me in the nght direction, as I have heard of many people buying printers then having trouble with them.
Phillip Cole, Coventry A As the pnnter you mention emulates the Epson LQ550, it should work perfectly well with the EpsonQ printer driver supplied with your A500 Plus Workbench 2.04 disks. The parallel printer lead you presently use will also work fine with the new printer.
As for using more fonts, only a PostScript laser printer actually gives access to more fonts, but any that you have will print better on a decent quality inkjet. I don’t know much about the Brother HJ-tOOi, so check before you buy what its maximum print resolution is.
This shouldn 't bo loss than about 300dpi if the printer is to justify its price tag. And you might like lo compare it to the Star SJ-10 reviewed in this month's Shop Window section.
The SJ-48, a Canon BJ-10 rebadge, will print at 360dpi, albeit slowly, and costs only £215. Alternatively, try taking a look at the Hewlett Packard 550. A much quicker printer with sheet feeder as standard It retails for about £330, so isn’t much more than the Brother and takes quite a bit of beating in the value for money stakes.
Can you please review a greater range of multisync monitors, especially ones that can display lower resolutions including Super72 mode?
P Sadler, Redditch A Amos 1.3 does not work under Workbench and instead uses its own screen, so it does not work well with mode promotion. There's nothing I know of which can be done about this apart from buying Amos Professional, which functions betltY under Workbench 3.0. Phone Europress Software on 0625 859533 for more details.
Your monitor won't use the entire Viewing area because the AC A chips don't output a standard VGA signal, unlike the flicker fixer you mention which does this and a lot more besides. The inch of lost screen area cannot be regained on most monitors, though you may be able to reduce it by experimenting with different monitor types.
Finally, the reason uv mentioned only the 1960 in relation to the complete range of AGA screen modes is because it is the only monitor which will carry out this feat.
A new range of Commodore AGA monitors with stereo sound are on the way f oofc out for a review soon!) And other manufacturers look set to release better matching monitors in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for news.
Which printer?
Ql own an A500 with 1Mb RAM and I was thinking seriously about converting to the new Amiga 1200. However, I have only had my A500 for about seven months and my parents aren't too keen on the idea.
Could you outline the advantages so I can use them as arguments?
I am now studying for my A-levels and need to use a wordprocessor for reports and essays. Which printer can you recommend for about £230? The same goes for monitors. Can you recommend one?
Will the PD program Kickl.3 work with the A1200 to make it more compatible with older games and so on?
David Bromley, Grimsby A I wouldn't dream aiding an abetting an avaricious teenager in the pursuit of shallow mate rialislic ends!
As for your printer, the Canon B lOsx or Star LC24-20 Mk2 are the obvious choices. A bit more cash u )uld secure you a faster bub- bleiet or a few extras such as colour or a sheet feeder, but the basic printers should be good enough for essays and reports. Try First Computer Centre on 0532 319444.
For the price range you specify, the only real choices are the 1084 Or the Philips CM8833.
Indie Direct are doing a good deal on the 1084 at the moment, so check out their ad.
Video titler Ql have bought an A600 to m for video titling. At the momed I use a VEC 1070 video cessor (an excellent unit) and a Son| Video Sketch Titler for titling, though rm latter is not powerful enough.
I will have about £200 to spend on • genlock, but will the genlock work with rt video processor, and what type or ma do you recommend?
With a good freeze frame on my video recorder, would the genlock act as • frame grabber'* Lastly, I want to send messages of even digitised pictures across the counry to my family. What type of modem a o message cruncher de-cruncher softwa’* would you recommend for £120?
Brian Gibson, Blackpool A Any Amiga genlock will wot perfectly with your video processor as long as you ensure yo* have the same sort of signals. In ottr words, make sure that if your video pr cessor accepts composite PAL signas that you buy a composite PAL genlock rather than an S-VHS unit.
Most of the cheaper genlocks are composite, so this should present no problem unless you have an S-VHS processor, n which case you'll need a much more expensive genlock.
Try the Rocgen unit available from a number of our advertisers. It is rebat e and has a good quality output ana shouldn't cost more than about £ 140. One other good entry level unit with good output is the Rendale 8602, so shop around for a good price.
In common with most genlocks. Neither unit will act as a frame grabber, and for this you'll need some extra hardware. The Vidi Amiga 12 offer on our May issut CoverDisk sounds ideal for you, as : offers a high quality colour digitiser for only £69. If you didn't catch that issue, buy it tor the bargain price of only £3.10 courtesy of our back issue service.
A cheaper Supra modem should just about squeeze into your budget for such a device, though the money you save on the genlock might go towards a faster model which would be cheaper in the long run.
Software tor comms use is mostly excellent and most shareware. You mgM give Ncomm and JR-Comm a look, and you'd be mad not to go for PowerPacker

Most CLR titles After the post-Christmas lull, the quality seems to be returning to the public sector - obviously a proportion of whizz-kid Amiga-for-Christmas programmers are getting the grip of their Amos’s and Seucks and beginning to churn out some original stuff.
Whatever the reason, this month sees a truly absorbing golf game which could well have been worthy of commercial release only a short while back: a bizarre and fresh arcade game in the strangely titled Bomb Jacky; and possibly the most polished music disks I've ever had the aural pleasure of reviewing.
Before starting, my apologies to everyone who’s sent me stuff which I haven't had room to review. I've been inundated with disks of late, so a lot of worthy programs have, unfortunately, had to fall by the wayside.
Text Engine 17 Bit, 2465 If you're short of money but decide vou need a word processor for your Amiga, you may wish to look and see what’s available for free in the public domain.
Until recently, PD word processors have lacked too many of the features of their commercial rivals to warrant serious consideration by all but the most light users, but the arrival of disks like Text Engine is heralding an end to all of that.
Text Engine is a professional-looking, fast and solid program, which has enough of the features you'd find on a commercial variant to make it genuinely useful to the average user.
On loading, it immediately resembles - both in colour and in the rules across the top and down the side - Wordworth or kindwords 3, and has a palette adjuster allowing you to alter the colours of pen, paper and guidelines to suit your preferences. Included in its impressive list of Phil Morse sifts the very best from a large postbag of quality gear to bring you the latest top quality free and PUBLI shareware games, utilities, animations and music Fruit Salad or rbuborb and custard? Lit her way. A rather i trange platformer EasyCalc Roberta Smith, 2507 Spreadsheets. Even the word is enough to
induce involuntary falling of the eyelids.
Plain, boring and impossible to use are just some of the criticisms thrown at the can-dos are a 36,000-word dictionary, full support for Ascii loading and saving (so files can be used from other word processors, or vou can take Text Engine-created disks and use them elsewhere), the ability to handle interlace if you're lucky enough to have a compatible monitor, and a comprehensive set of editing options.
Add to this macro support, a large selection of font styles (although only one font) and the ability to print to all Epsoncom- palible printers, and it becomes clear that Text Engine is nothing less than a perfectly acceptable basic wordprocessor for the price of a meagre shareware fee- majority of examples in the public domain J
- either that, or they're so completely basifl that their use for
anything which might] possibly warrant the painful learning]
curve necessary is nigh-on impossible.
All criticisms which the author of] EasyCalc noted when trying to find a I spreadsheet worth using, before giving up j and deciding to write his own.
Spreadsheets - for those who have the j good fortune of having never found out -1 are meant to simplify accounts, forecast-1 ing cashflows and the like, by taking in aB of vour numerical information and learning the links between say, salary1 and tax.

That's not to say it isn't worth a look, though - far from it.
During the customary age it takes to load - a fact about which it warns you sardonically as the tedious process bogins - we re left to wait with the faint hope of something amusing at the end of it all.
And indeed, although it is all a bit awkward, the plot getting cluttered by the Tent tnglne tn use It ai professional as It looks Amiga Computing July 1993 The USS Enterprise. About to embark on a donge out mlttlon .. ple. Claiming to be easy to use, by con- timing all of the basics without superfluous extras (the very extras you pay fcdvily for when investing in a commercial spreadsheet), EasyCalc's author is anything but modest about the capabilities of his program.
Luckily, it lives up to all of the claims, from the word go this is very professionally presented - you know, the icons look polished, it does indeed race along at a hare' s pace as the author claims, and overall has all the hallmarks of a designed- hom-the-ground-up package.
So should you be looking for a workhorse spreadsheet, this one justifies the rather steep shareware registration fee of £l5 - there's even an order form on the disk!

Ions you amFruit Salad 17 Bit, 2499 In this unlikely platformer, your friends have turned into fruit and vegetables, and what's more, they've got it into them that your destruction is of prime importance.
You collect rather unoriginal "gems" from each screen, which allow you lo leave by a predefined exit. When you collect the last gem, the background colours scroll rapidly, to great psychedelic effect. It’s a case of get out quick before your monitor explodes, and I only exaggerate a little.
Indeed its looks - both in-game and the overall presentation - are its strong point, along with some amusing sound samples to pepper things up. The actual gameplay itself is rather average, which is not to say that it's unplayable, just that the characters move around rather simply and at a sloW- ish pace.
Still, the use of the Fire button instead of Joystick Up to jump is a first for me, and it's worth playing just for those backgrounds!
18th Hole 17 Bit, 2994A B A graphically excellent golf game, 18th Mole combines a complete course of varied holes with lots of engaging control over your shots, guaranteed to keep you playing right until the very end - especially if you utilise the two-playcr option and get some healthy human competitiveness in there.
You start by using a simple method to select direction, power and swing, and then watch as you hit the ball - which gets bigger on your plan-view of the course as it rises - to what is hopefully somewhere nearer to the green.
When you reach the green you get a special, full-screen close-up of what's going on, as you attempt to glide the ball home and you onto the next hole.
The gameplay itself is actually quite unrealistic - how could a golf simulator on a computer be anything but? - and this one feels more like an obstacle course than a golf course.
This is because vou cannot hit over the trees, of which there arc quite a few more than you'd expect to find. What's more, they're invariably positioned between where you tee off and the green, meaning it’s like going through a maze sometimes.
Nevertheless, the graphics, rules (you get an authentic score card), and neat touches lend the mood if not the authentic gameplay of the real thing. A great game, and well recommended for armchair golfers not impressed by the cost of commercial alternatives.
PD, please!
I’m always on the look-out for top quality RD. whether it be utilities, games, applications, animations or music (and music doesn't have to be rave!).
So if you're the author of something so off-beat or original that a languid commercial giant wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, then get it in the post with a great deal of haste.
Or if you run a library, send me your star disks for possible free publicity in these very pages.
Please ensure that all submissions come clearly marked with the title and type of program, the address it can be obtained from and any other information you feel to be relevant.
A ReadMe on disk is always useful, as is a hard copy list detailing exactly what is enclosed in your package. All of these measures will dramatically increase the chances of your product making it into print.
Menu Launcher 17 Bit, 2486 A tool designed to Start any application, game or whatever you've got installed on your hard drive, using a very simple method involving simply clicking on a button, Menu Launcher shrinks on your Workbench to just a window with a title bar. And can be expanded to display up to 15 programs for choice of loading. It comes complete with a comprehensive Ort-disk manual explaining how to set up and use the utility. I envisage a use for this in, say, a ?
Being cruel to owner. This time it’s a dog. Showing that our canine chums can be anything but Man's Best Friend when they want to.
What all four of these animations lack In graphical complexity they make up for in pleasing animation and a wickedly sick sense of humour. Oh. And they load quickly. Petty Amiga owners will most certainly extract a wry giggle from the anim entitled Atari ST Game - I II leave it to you to find out what this one s all about.
KefcB TK fc FoRTrtE psTP*«i SV .vA* Don t ump! It a wkktdly huntoroui thort animation " Wl bcH cPt eifru , clumsy screenplay at times, it is also rather amusing, and is ultimately saved by the judicious use of original Star Trek music and samples.
The bit where Captain Kirk is moving his mouth on the screen in time to real audio footage of his voice is particularly impressive- Indeed, with both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy getting a shout in. A seemingly irrelevant green kangaroo-style thing and the emergence of a shock guest from Star Trek: The New Generation towards the end, this is a larf if nothing else.
More accomplished, though, is Marco's Box of Fun from 17 Bit (2497). A collection of four animations on one disk, this collection - penned by one Marco Vigelius - opens on a short relying on the old Fat Freddy's Cat gag of animal Oaah the botk i tabbing tynklim of It all!
Ably hypnotic jHaWando! By Ramirez and Pizarro.
Even Zero B’s seminal (and highly unavailable) Lock Up is here This collection is presented complete with tasteful and fashionable on-screen stills.
Well sampled, seamless and presented in an uncluttered and pleasing form, this is a dance-on-disk milestone. The jury are stood on the sofa with their hands in the air... I think they quite like it.
It's all dance stuff this month - if you want to send me your sequenced Schubert I'd be more than grateful for the change, but of the d«$ ks that I could actually get to load, the only ones worth reviewing had a decidedly, erm. Foot- tapping feel to them.
No Limits, by John Crawford, takes No Limits by 2 Unlimited and Felix’s neo-hiNRG classic Don't You Want Me, and submits them to the classic Amiga cut 'n paste treatment, To the visual accompaniment of a crudely drawn but stroboscopically flashing dancefloor - complete with lights and even a glitter ball - the Amiga crunches its way through some crudely cut-up chunks of music, whose lack of subtlety distracts from the actually quite effective onscreen colour onslaught A *no' from the jury. I’m afraid.
Far better musically, and indeed possibly the best sequenced Amiga dance music I've ever had the pleasure of reviewing, are entitled Dance Classics 1 and 2, which come from Andrew McEniry Six classic dance choons are here spread across two disks, from the fittingly chopped up Liberation (a song which itself borrows nearly everything from other records) to Italy's best Capella and the less immediate but undeni- Dante amsks *oh i k 2 - the best dance disks ever Strange gameplay Indeed In Attuned Toys small business where the computer us used exclusively for a number of pre-defirted tasks,
such as a wordprocessor, spread- slieet or calendar, or for setting up education games for a child to use unaccompanied, for instance - although in the latter case, it could do with being a little more colourful and welcoming to anxious voung fingers.
Still, if you like it, it only costs a bargain £5 shareware registration, and for this you get a fully working version including the ability to laid and save your preferences - quite an important addition, when you come to think about it.
Bomb Jacky 17 Bit, 2476 Apart from the wicked title, this is an awesome example of what the public domain occasionally throws up - a game so fresh and off-beat that no commercial house, with their highly polished sprites and movements, would ever consider releasing.
The excellent opening sequence involves the credits being written in 3D hand grenades (you gotta see it, really) combined with some punchy, drum 'n' bass rave-style music - all very professional.
The whole game feels very friendly and playable, from the bouncy, up-to-date tunes to the special effects to the Clever, colourful graphics.
It's basically a fast platformer, with a voung edge devoid of the yawning, predictable nature of many a slick release. This originality, combined with well-programmed gameplay, makes Bomb Jacky as addictive as it is original. Respect!
Three games are collected on this compilation by the Assassins bunchrwith the usual flash selection menu.
The first of these, a Seuck-effort called Super Raid IV, exhibits the usual jumpy* 'n'-clunky feel of Seuck games, but is in fact a half-decent copy of Thundeiblade, complete with an Assassin's-added unlimited lives feature at the beginning.
The second of the three failed to load on the basic A600 I was reviewing it on, but the third - apparently called Accursed Toys and opening on a rather sick picture involving a teddv bear and a knife - Assassins games 58 NBS, AS 58 is another Seuck effort, and decidedly weird to boot (no pun intended) Apparently you're meant to "help Tilka and Hyssop battle to make the grade", whatever that means. Anyway, it involves your scrolling vertically in a jumpy, clunky kind of way, shooting at ground-based plantlike creations which emit balls of botanical nastiness in your general direction.
I can't work out exactly what the majority of the sprites are meant to be, but they're all original, which is nice to see considering the decidedly unoriginal constraints imposed on such games by the limitations of the construction kit- Oh, and according to the game itself, it is actually called Realm of Maiyessae.
Weird... Sanity Amiganuts Battleaxe PD Hmmm. This one's about a character who - if the opening sequence is anything to go by - loses his mind, quite literally, Not surprisingly, he wants it back, leading to a highly trippy platformer full of cycling colours and extremely fast gameplay, all set to manic tribal drums and music with definite hardcore

The money is then turned into points GameR If there wos ever o genre that's been over-used since the day when computers first began, it hos to be the platformer The
unusual thing about platformers is the fact that they are almost idenhcol to eoch other.
That blasted Morio has got o lot to answer for Every since the early days of computers we’ve been plagued by Mario wannabes and Sonic lookalikes The shame is that a lot of these are just pure unadulterated crap Platformers are big business, mainly because everybody loves them I can bet that every gemer in the world hos at least one in their collection. For every amazing one you can expect another 20 copycats which are a load of old rubbish.
The Amiga world is packed full of rubbish as well, but when a good platform gome comes out you know about it. Switchblode, Another World, Myth, Putty, Rainbow Islands, Zool and more recently Superfrog are just a few examples I could mention.
The thing is that these tend to be fairly easy and ore quite smoll in size. Vision Software daim that Woody's World is the world’s biggest Amiga plot- form gome - a pretty brash and bold statement, especially os this is their very first full price release It could well be true though. I’ve always fancied being a detective, so I'll don my deerstalker like Sherlock, my false moustache like Poirot, hop in my Jog like Morse, be fat like Tosh from The Bill and investigate.
If you ask me, the evil boddies are a right pain.
If they're not taking over a whole universe then they're robbing old Mrs Miggins, the lody down the street. This time in Woody's World they nicked
o magic crystal and a few Tvs and videos to boot The King wos
inconsolable because the crystal had been stolen. Kingy hod
lost control ond his marbles and his kingdom hod boon
overthrown by, yop you've guessed it. Evil boddies.
Woody wos just your overage kind of hero whose thoughts were more concerned with the up ond coming elf Olympics.
The King decided that Woody should find his beloved crystol because of the foct that Woody is, umm, an athlete and con run fast, err probably.
The King then gove Woody a mop ond described each of the castles illustrated and the dodgers that surrounded them. He explained that there wos a seventh castle that was missing from the map tt was at this castle that the King thought Woody would (ho ho) find the mogic crystal Woody knew that he would hove to travel across his whole world to find the mysterious seventh castle, but if tho s what the King wanted then that is what he would have to do.
The chonces of him finding the crystal before the Olympics would be very slim, but you never know, he might just get lucky. Woody then bounded off to complete his quest.
What this basically means is that this plat- farmer involves you trekking through many different and varied levels in the desperate hope to find a crystal A cheesy plot doesn't olways moke far a bad piece of software though!
The adventure starts in the mysterious Stoom Castfa where Woody must beware of the, err, steam ond olso the evil beovers and birds that inhabit the place, if you bumped in to Woody J the street he'd look o fairly normal chap and if m wos your mate you'd probably buy him a pint, btfj Woody is far from normal. Remember it's olwpfl the quiet, shy, retiring types that are the ser killers Woody changes his oppearonce mo m times than his underwear He starts off in an of-' the-shoulder wizard outfit ond isn't that hero-li* because he's quite slow and can only kill his enemies by bouncing on their
heads Contained in Woody it finally let loose in the ootside level, but if he Woody would you please bee-have! Oh dear doesn't watch H he’ll playing the death level. Culp! A sad pun, but I just couldn t resist It.. i ene- in the mr are hundreds of heart blocks. When Woody Kangs them with his heod he scores bonus points, ktf pme of these blocks contain special power- MR If you collect o sceptre, Woody transforms Rato Prince Woody which gives him greater jump- Mg power and the ability to kick enemies I »you manage to grab a crown then Woody Vm into King Woody giving him greater piping power and
the ability to fire stars at his •wnies, and he get} to weor 0 smort shiny crown boot.
Eoch power-up also speeds Woody up thus mg the gome more smooth and in the process enjoyable to play The graphics in Woody's World are brilliont easily rival the standard set in Rainbow Hands. In fact to put it into perspective, imagine o cutey puppy dog with sad eyes looking up at you Wi its tongue out gnd begging with its paw Aww cute you may think, but the graphics in Woody's are ten times cuter thon that. Even when hero dies it's really cute.
The bockdrops ore just os good as the sprites wdi some redfy nice effects - they're as imprests as anything I've seen for a long time.
For instance, take the clouds level where Woody jumps from cumulus to nimbus and where We wind actually blows our stocky hero all over We place making the game more interesting that fust simply running through the level If I was stupid ond didn't have much sense I could instantly compare this to Superfrog, but some people will simply because it came out Iasi month and is still in people's minds, but I won't because they are two totally different gomes if I had to compare it to anything it'd probably be Mario, but seeing as the fat Italian plumber has never ond will never appear on the Amiga I
con quite happily compare it, so there.
On the sound front there is a whole abundance of fantastic tunes. The music seems to fit the action perfectly and for a change it doesn't get annoying
- you could actually find yourself humming it, even when you’re
not ploying1 The sound effects ore kept to a minimum, but are
more than adequate for this type of gome.
Playability-wise I can't really knock it. There oren't gny design faults that I could find. It looks suited lo smoll kids, but it’s one of the hardest platform games I've ever played and is recommended to platform experts wanting a bit of a challenge You onfy get three lives and these will roptdly run out if you don't keep on collecting energy ond extra lives. It'll take you a while, before you octu- ally manage to get through a few levels.
Instability isn't a problem because I've comod out o thorough investigation ond Woody's World is the biggest Amiga platform gome to dote.
The number of levels is incredible. Pul it this way - you won't be able to complete it very quickly unless you're some kind of computer games hero or genius. Vision hove come up with a crock- er ond for their full price debut they couldn't have written a better game Woody’s World has got everything - great graphics, top tunes, pocked full of playability ond an addiction factor that is so dangerous it broke the Gamer oddidive-o-meter.
It you liked Superfrog then this is your cup of tea and I would heartily recommend it to anyone, although it is o bit of the difficult side, but more than definitely worth persevering with Wood you believe it o brilliant debut and no mistake. Platform fans hove never hod it so good JONATHAN MADDOCK Take time out on your adventure and inspect the local wildlife. The Woodster chills out...

So what can you do if you still want the excitement and the gameplay Get the computer game, of course When I first booled up IRC I was impressed by the smoothness with which everything ron. The title screen and intros were very tosleWy executed leaving you in a very timely release indeed tills, with England steaming through the Rugby Sevens to win. It seems fitting that we should release a game and have a quick gloat. But this respectable win doesn't take away the foct that you have to be six foot two, 15 stone and drink masses of bitter to be a rugby A rules ond the gomeplay were almost
perfectly faithful to the real thing, There was the occasional discrepancy or niggle, for instance when the opposition kick theball back into your half you men seem to run around it and not pick it up until the opposition have cought up with it. But oport from that IRC is o winner! Well done Domark.
BEN STYLES os IRC come into the office it wos o cose of nudge, wink wink, some plonker's nu1 a rugby gome But as it turns out they have mode a fair job of the control method. It’s similar to many of the football simulations - the member of the team that you ore controlling at one rticular time is depicted by an arrow above is head. This changes as the ball move around.
As you probably know, you hove to get the ball past the line at the end of the pitch and os near to the posts as you possibly con.
Once this is achieved you can convert your try and gain more points.
The conversion entails you kicking the boli from o set distance away over the crossbar but still between the two upright poles, In Rugby the conversions control is very similar to a golf sim - you have to click at the right time tor the speed and power then you have to dick for the aim.
To pass to other players on your way down the field there ore two methods You con either click your button quickly and your player will make a pass in the direction where a teom member should be, or you can hold down the button and a ill appear. You have to do this pretty quickly and aiming takes a bit of getting used to but it works in Ine end. As far as we could tell the I’ve seen but after a few minutes of fiddling you get the hang of w hat all the tools do One aspect I found very impressive was the use of hot keys on the menus - it's possible to just press the one designated letter of
the option you wont instead of waiting until your cursor gets over there. By far my favourite aspect is the fad that you can play the game on different levels, so if you are purely interested in the oction, you can completely ignore the management side and vice-versa.
If you just fancy going for a quick knockabout you don't have to take into occount that three of your men are injured .and that you are in deep financial trouble - foot is if i you don't wont to. As soon The natural thing to do would be to compare Flashback wilh Another World.
Although they ore aesthetically very similar, Flashback offers much more in the way of gameplay than Another World did.
In fact, there is a common misconception thot Floshbock is actually a sequel to Another World.
This is not the cose, which is further reinforced by the fact thal sequels to both Another World ond Floshbock ore under way Prince of Persia first set the standard by which VII charocter animation was subsequently judged, then come Another World and Cruise for a Corpse, both by Delphine. Floshbock continues this animation excellence and throws in a lorge and healthy dollop of gomeplay to boot Such onimotion, married with excellent background graphics, seems to be a trodemork of games from our French friends. But despite the excellent visuals, they never quite seemed to master that most
ethereal ingredient of good gameplay - until now thot is.
Floshbock is not only visually great - the control method, atmosphere and generol difficulty level have been balanced to a point of perfection This is a game everyone will finish because it will grob you by the throat ond drag you bock for more purely because it's so good So, whgt's it oil gbcvt, I hear you ask? Well, the story goes something like this Conrad B Hart, o research scientist, hos prepared his end-of-yeor thesis. He hos developed a pair of glasses which con measure moleculor density.
Having completed the Death Tower, Cooru» wins the first prize, a ticket to Earth The Death Tower scenario is very reminiscent of the Arnold Schwrarzenfiegger film, Running Man His device reveals aliens, whose moleculor density is far greater than ours, living among the population. As is the cose with the majority of diens, they are not on Earth for a holiday but to take the place ewer Unfortunately, Conrad’s investigations raise suspicion among the aliens who, quite understood ably, don't want some human strolling around, conveying to all ond sundry the exact nature of their presence on
Earth. So, being a dever dick, combined with his fear of capture, Conrod pre- pares o holographic messoge and then saves the contents of his memory, which he then sends to his friend Ion Recharge your protect yourself from enemy fire Conrad is eventually captured and his memory erosed by the aliens. Still held captive, he mon- ages to escape v«j o hoverbike with the aliens in hot pursuit.
During the chose, Conrod's bike is shot ond he crashes to the jungle below Content that Conrod did not survive the foil, his pursuers leave.
However, Conrod is o lucky bugger and has survived the crash.
He awakes, not knowing who he is or where he is. This is where you take over. You have to guide Conrod on his mission to find his pal, Ian, and to recover his memory However, os is the case wilh most missions, to find your memory as well os a bloke called Ion, things are not going to be simple, There are oodles of obstacles, most of which shoot ot you, so some nifty joystick manipulation will be reqvired Thonk goodness good of' Conrod just happens to have a rather mean handgun, which, os is humorously evident in so many TV Westerns, doesn't seem to exhaust its supply of bullets Thankfully.
Flashback s control method is as good as the main chorocters onimotion which it controls. Too many good gomes have died a quick death due to poor joystick programming and Delphine are obviously aware of that fod.
Once you grab hold of the joystick, you will have Conrod running, jumping, rolling around ond blasting baddies with consummate ease in no time In foct, the key to success is the ability to quickly master the various movements which Conrad is able to do. Tbose of you wbo have ployed Prince of Persia will no doubt take to the controls immediately os they are extremely similar As you guide Conrod around the various screens, blosfing away all opponents, you will also have to contend with puzzles. You will come across many objects such os o force field, anti- ploding mice, oil of which grov
belt and even exi you will find useful Besides the amazing charactei animation and great f: ground graphics, there are also spot animations that occur when such actions as picking up ¦ object or using one are done.
An example is the shield which absorbs n hits from a opponent, after which you will dfl Various power outlets are dotted around the M rain and when stood next to one, you m«J recharge the shield to full strength Therefore, a good memory is invaluable vfim you find your shield low. Knowing where the neal est power outlet is will improve your chonces ¦ survival against a particularly son-of-obi... I meal rather difficult to kill enemy or enemies, onl believe me, there are quite o few loitering orouM I One suspicion I was harbouring when asked M review this was that Floshbock, although visudH
stunning, was going to be one of those gone* whose philosophy is to put you right back to si unreasonably early position on the level shodJ you be unfortunate enough to be killed I wos pleasantly proven wrong on that point 3 the game has various Save Gome points at *ii thought-out positions on the levels. However, "w ggme isn't saved to disk, so if you turn off yaw AMIGA you'll hove to start from the very beginn.ng of the level you ore on. Combine this RAM so*| feature throughout eoch level, wilh the level passwords which are A rather energetic - and lengthy - jump is required to bridge this
gap Fi I I cu fie to rrad.
Conrad takes off en a stolen hoverbike to get as MU* Delphine do it again with this excellent arcade adventure featuring jaw-dropping animation and eye-popping graphics provided as you complete eoch part and you hove
o system whereby even the most impatient of us - ¦ho throw the
joystick ogainst the woJI shouting ‘Oh $ ?*£, it took me ages to
get to this point!* - ¦nil find adequate.
Whe* necr esc-' mec- and und cd to wait- omet 10 or rouJd I mi os I well the you' ining save DOSS Most gamers expect a lot from today's games, both in terms of visuals and sanies. Well, from the screenshots, you can get a good idea of the over- al look of the game - you'll just have to take my ¦ord for it about the stunning animation The sound effects are equally impressive. As well as various 'spot soundtracks' as you move from screen to screen, there ore lots of sound effects interspersed throughout the game.
These are especially evident on levels which are outdoors, where you ael the effect of chirps, bleats and general noises of hidden alien beasts ringing n your ears. Very atmospheric I con tell you.
Besides the nasty occupants of this planet you ; nd yourself on, which, in general, now to be shot os soon as you see them, there are also some friendly folk eager to help (if only to make a fast buck) There is limited interaction with these people in that you simply wolk over to them, press the joystick button ond reod the conversation between Conrod ond the oforemenhoned person.
Many of the conversations will give clues os to your next course of action and pretty soon, Conrod regains his memory ond the action really begins lo speed up.
To conclude, Flashback is as slick os a James Cameron film and I for one can't wait for the sequel.

There ore windows for passengers remaining to be saved, lives, ond how much time is left on the fuses of any bombs you've planted...
JETPAC TO SAFETY Various objects can be utilised as mentioned earlier Jetpocs are very useful - when you pull them off the wall, they drop into any rising waters which have stranded passengers in it, allowing the passengers to jetpoc to safety, or the top of he screen - whichever comes first!

Burst pipes shoot out fatal steam at thousands of oking I ouW I As for os he gameplay goes, ifs a nice idea and a credible attempt to deviate from the Lemmings idea, but like so many copied gomes, he more it deviates, he more it seems to lose some kind of simplistic mogic. It feds rota duttered, with too much superfluous stuff going on.
This has he effect of mokina it hard deciding exactly what's happening, which in turn makes it hard to settle back into some serious, contemplative, Pause-on pozzie-type thinking as one could do with great pleasure in Lemmings. So, he presentation is Here's a novel variotion on the old Lemmings theme.

There are differences, thgygh For g stgrt, kevin is an actual character who has nothing to do wilh the Dim Passengers. You can't moke the passengers actually do anything like you can Lemmings - odions are controlled by a number of means opart from he passengers themselves, about which more later.
Also, the Dim Passengers might be locking enough of the grey stuff to snatch the chair at MENSA from Sir Clive, bu* they haven't got a pathological desire to end it all in the same way tat our diff-loving chums of old hove.
Indeed, they'll do everything fhey can to run away from the rising waters when bey come across tan.
Oh, and control is not via a crosshair ond a mouse, but by the more conventional joystick and Fire button approoch, your button being used to set off bombs, pick tags up and so on.

Here's your big chance, grab your mouse and get down to it... The football league season is finally coming to a close. It's now the time of hearty promotion ond relegation bottles.
Monchester United ore. Ot the time of writing, sitting smugly at the top of the league and it looks os though Alex Ferguson has finally achieved leogue success for the Red Devils for the first time since 1967.
Week 1 Preseason 1 The pressure of controlling a football dub must be immense. Not only do you hove to run the team and moke sure you've got the best ll players on the pork on a Saturday afternoon, but you must also keep an eye on the money situation and the generol running of the club.
The question to be osked in this review is, could you have done it? Could you hove token a football club like Manchester United to the leogue title? Well thanks to Domark yov con find out.
As the great Bill Shankly once remarked "Football isn't a gome of life ond death - it's much more importont than that."
There are two types of computer football gomes. The first is the action arcade gome like Sensible Soccer or Kick Off where you have direct control over your team. There «s much more to football than just ploying it, though, ond this is reflected in the second type of gome.
The management type has been oround since the days of the Spectrum where Football Manager was the definitive football gome. Not much in the way of graphics or sound, but the playability was unbeatable.
One of the most recent football games to hit the charts was Premier Manager by Gremlin ond o lot of you punters out seemed to have enjoyed it immensely.
A yeor or so ago, Domark released Championship Manager and it fared pretty well in the cruel world of computer games soles. It was probably the most realistic football management gome I'd ever ployed, so yov con well imagine the grin on my face when I heard about the brand new updated version.
Yep, Championship Manager '93 is here and it promises to be the best football management simulation ever in the whole wide world.
That's some statement, but I have the sneaky suspicion that Domark fully intend not to break that promise. If I were to detail every new feo tore in this updated version of Championship at your disposal Manager then Gamer would be full up ond besides I haven't got time. I'll rvn through a few of them though. Basically everything hos been updated. The Premier League is now included plus all the cup competitions oil hove their proper names.
All the player data is now correct ond when you click on the player's name you get a full screen of statistics. You basically get a Ml run down on the player in question from number of goals scored to his previous dub history to the colour of his underpants.
This information coupled with the player's real name gives CM 93 that edge of realism, simply because you con relate to the players better.
Other features include 0 brand new scout system, ployer loons, upgrading of stadia, injury time, manoger’s salary, own goals, win bonuses, more board comments ond many more.
There is olso a five-week gap before the Hart of the season, so that you tan orgon** friendlies, then select your best team and gp your players up to match fitness. This is o m little touch end it's the first time I've seen it dor* in o football management gome.
As I mentioned before the real names od: that touch of realism to the game, but they alp have the corrod ages, so it's only going to be matter of time before you hove to re-name yov team to Parkside Old Folks Wanderers.
To stop this from happening CM 9!
Generates new players to come into the gomr obviously you won't of heard of them, but i» nevertheless a very good idea.
Another big addition to the game is the indt sion of foreign players into the tronsfer market There ore in fact 100 foreigners ond the gam?
Includes a wide voriety of players ond countries.
Unless you're o totally loopy football fon ther you will never heard of any of them apart fror the odd Italian here ond there and that's onlf thanks to Channel Four's Sunday oflernoon TV progromme. You never know, you might pick up a Pele or two!
Take a gander at the screenshots and youl see that CM 93 is not graphically fantastic. Thr whole game is controlled using the mouse and centres around a menu system which involves c lot of clicking.
The only graphic of interest is the choice of pictures which you can have as your backdrop to the game. There ore seven or so to choose from.
You con choose a nice picture of the charm ing Chelsea midfield dynamo Andy Townsend or you can even leave if totally blank - the choice as they soy is yours... One thing you should know about is the acto al match day. Now this is nothing like what I expected when I first saw it. The set up of the screen is incredibly basic with the time set in the top right corner, the two team names ond six U lie bars at the bottom.
You get o running commentary of the gome but it's oil done in broken English. An example would be "Rush rounds keeper. Rolls it in net Goal. Goal disallowed, Referee spotted handbal offence."

Well I (on see the ref signaling to his lines- n ond we’ve ployed two minutes of injury t, so HI sum up for you.
Chompionship Manoger is the most complete ‘•wtM management sim I've ever played. The .ncer amount of detail that's gone into it is unbe- vable. Simply because so much time and effort
- os beer pvt in by the gomes creators, if deserves 0 Gomer Gold.
Everything you rhink should be in a management gome is in Chompionship Monoger 93.
Internationals, transfers, scouts, penalties ond so at ore oil there It wffl appeal to the dedicated football fan, but I also thinlc it could do rdther well with other gomejployers because it is so good.
GraphkoMy it's not briliant, but I don't think thot this type of game warrants amazing graph ks anyway. Ihe sound department it virtually non-existent wilh only a couple of cheers in there when you score e goal, but ogain it's not the type o gome thot needs sound. Ir't positively overflowing with playability ond is highly oddictive.
There ore two ways to buy the game. The first it to run down the shops and pay £29.99 for it The second is to upgrade your original Championship Momger by sending the disks and C7.99 to those nice chaps ot Inlelek who con be reoched at: Championship Manager '93, Intelelc, PO Box 1738, Bournemouth BH4 8TN.
To put it simply, Championship Monoger is Ryon Giggs, while all the other management gomes ore Tony Adams. I rest my case.
JONATHAN MADOOCK It's that all Important match day and County have won!

Notional pride demonds a spirited performance and nothing short of victory will drog the names of the 11 unfortunate white-clad sportsman out of the ninth circle of hell to which every sports journo in Wapping banished them after the winter tour.
Grohom Gooch's World Class Cricket is the latest of a small group of games which have attempted to simulate the sport, and comes closer than anything yet released to the real thing.
Good games of this sort ore difficult to produce because cricket doesn't lend itself as reodily as football to a fast exciting computer game, but GGWCC combines simulation occurocy with slick gameplay and brings it off very nicely.
J«t about e«y nJ. And 0sp«t ol crick* i. *** *¦» “ **** *"nri ¦“* " implemented, from LBWs to run-outs, ond the superb graphics cotch the eye as soon as play commences.
Crammed onto one disk as it is, GGWCC loads quickly, plays quickly, and disk access is minimal, so nothing gets in the way of the simulation.
In play, the gome can be as complex or simple as one likes, and there should be enough options to keep even the cricket fanatics happy.
Play con be over anything from one to five days and the number of overs con be set from 20 to unlimited.
A selection of world teoms is on offer, complete with realistic and current player lists, but the novice need only hove ihe computer select the best 11 to proceed to the action.
The more finicky among us can chop and change team selection by dipping into the full squoa, and the even more dedicated will find the option to edit teoms, teom names, ond even players' individual characteristics to suit any taste.
It would, for instance, be perfeclty possible for a nostalgic player to change the England and WORLD CLASS CRICKET Tired of watching the familiar old middle order collapse? Now's your chance to don the white jumper and see if you can do any better Australia line up to repeat the infamous "body- line' tour of the 30s complete with Don Bradman and company.
In play, bowling, batting, and fielding ore oil taken care of in simple but effective fashion.
Bowling is o matter of placing the intended landing point for the ball then clicking the joystick button, ot which point one of two things will hop- pen depending on the type of bowler being used.
If playing a fast bowler, the player will see a speed bar in the corner of the screen which con be controlled by waggling the joystick back and forth to increase speed.
Spin bowlers vary in that they bring up a selection for leg or off spin, then the player waggles the joystick to increase the amount of spin For odded reolism, a natural leg spin bowler will be able to spin the boll foster in that direction.
Botina can be tricky - my first innings score of oil gy* should be ample testament to tbot - but with practice and good timing the eight types of shot on offer give the player enough flexibility to deal with oil sorts of bowlers.
There is little in the way of the delicate touch, but the choice of where in the crease to stood, when to hit the button, and which shot to play makes batting a challenging enovgh affair without fancy extras Once you manage to pull a decent shot out of the bog, joystick waggling is ogain needed to make the botsmen run ot anything more than a relaxed conter, so piay can become quite physical as one player waggles furiously to deliver a fast boll and the other does likewise to squeeze a single out of a short cut to the midfield Fielding is less controllable, but one feature I liked was the
ability to set a different field plocement for eoch bowler then save them to disk for later use.
It is possible to arrange the fielders far one fast bowler then copy it to all the other fost bowlers, so quick tactics changes are passible before ond during play.
When on opposing botsmen hits the ball, the display changes to a more distant view showing about a quarter of the field, and the fielder under control is highlighted by on arrow Players have little or no control over what happens, ond my input seemed to be limited to jvst pressing the button to throw the ball Overall, despite using the some graphics for European, Caribbean, and Asion players, the lock of a tour or World Cup option, and a few reservations about some cricket fans' willingness to indulge in joystick waggling, GGWCC is eov fy the best cricket game available on the Amigc and one of
the most well polished and netfS implemented sports games I’ve ever had th pleasure to play.

• o‘ I V v ' a •.
V H* put the Pl,a5ti c: in thf hole Yts, well that's th« normal when robbing banks. Let's go to work!
Remember the days when games were simple? When the graphics ond sound were basic and the titles were straightforward, like Asteroids or Frogger?
They more often than not told you something about the game. For instance, o game like Frogger obviously features a frog, but these days game creators just seem to call their gomes anything they wont to, a prime example being Nippon Safes Inc. What on earth is that oil about? Well, from ire title you'd think it'd be about a lood of Japanese sofes running around the world causing havoc ond mayhem!
No, despite the title Nippon Sofes Inc is on interactive adventure game, and it hos to be soid that it's certainly a little bit strange. Not surreol and far out, but definitely weird.
It uniquely features three different central characters to choose from each with their own odven- ture and puzzles to soU. Each character's story proceeds alongside the others - they're irrevocably linked.
It's up to you whether you decide lo solve them one at o time or alternate between them. The characters themselves are vastly different from one another, but they all have similar objectives, The game is set in and oround the fictitious city of Tyoko in Jopan where in the more disreputable ports of the metropolis a shady character hos been wondering oround looking suspicious. The object is to discover who he or she is and what they could be up to.
Nippon Sofes takes o lot of its ideas from traditional Japanese culture, incorporating tea making, geisha girls, sumo and so on - although it is set in tne 90s.
Ifs certainly like no other odventure game I’ve Strangely named and even stranger to play. Take a trip into the mysterious metropolis of Tyoko in this highly original adventure played bofore and looks a lot different to every thing else on the market at the moment. The graphics oren't quite as impressive as Monkey Islond 2, but they do have a unique look to them. The presentation makes a nice change and the whole thing has a very cartoon-like appeal ond feel to it. All the characters are quite well animated.
Your perspective changes as you ploy the game It's hard to explain, but look at the screenshots on the page ond you'll see the different views.
From the far crway view on the highway to the full-screen close-up outside the Hot Sushi to the view from the Metro which uses only a small part of the screen, the different angles make it ofl that little bit more interesting Control is o point-and-dick affair using the mouse, but tbere also is an icon system. This can be colled up using the right mouse button and allows you to select either a command or an object to use. There ore four commands in all. You con pick things up; examine objects; open and dose objects, and most importantly talk to people Wien you talk to onother character, a
picture of you and his or her head appears You then get two or three choices on what to say and the con1 versgtion will continue like this until you've soid all you need to.
You con use objects with other objects, which can be done by holding the left mouse button down while clicking the right. All in oil, the system is incredibly easy to use, Some of the puzzles ore very strange and not quite os straightforward os in something like Monkey Islond or Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. You'll solve most of them by stumbling around different ports of TyoJco.
Unless you check everything you're likely to miss an object which wil become very important later on m the gome It's always best to pick up everything you find because it can be a reol bossle having to go back for stuff The centre of Tyoko is quite lorge, but several other parts of the city can be accessed using the very reliable Metro tube trains. Once bought the ticket can be used as mony times as you like ond will never run out. British Rail take note1 There is a certain amount of humour. For example, the programmers put in an appearance, but most of their jokes only opply to themselves
Nippon Safes is nowhere near as funny os Monkey Islond, but is far funnier than Jimmy Tarbuck, Its best point is that it’s so different from everything else The presentation is spat on and oil the graphics are brilliant, especially the backgrounds. There isn't mveh to listen to on the sound front, but tbere are several spot effects like birds tweeting in the pork to test your ears out on.
At least there isn't a bloody annoying tune that ploys all the way through like some Other odven- tures I could mention, but won’t.
The control system is well designed and you'll be able to master it after only o couple of minutes' ploy. The biggest bonus has to be the fact that you've literally got three gomes in one. All three odventures, despite having similar objectives, are completely different One thing I have to mention is the foci that the gome comes on five disks, so o hard drive is a Oino tries his hardest to get a walk-on definite must. If you do play on disks then you'll be swopping until the cows come home - fine if you con put up with it! If you're gasping for an odven- hire having completed everything else
around, Nippon Safes Inc could be well worth your time and money One thing I can't work out is just why the creators called it Nippon Safes Inc. I suppose it's just going have to be one of life's mysteries.
JONATHAN MADDOCK company Doug Nuts An electronics genius who uses his knowledge br unlawful purposes although so far only with
* eogre results. His career as an electronic engi- seer at
Oxford ended when he was caught fid- dtng the results of the
exams Stored in the focul- computer. Students, eh?
He then moved to Japan, the homeland of electronics. He gets picked up by the cops every lime one of his gadgets fails when trying to break into his local bank. A dirty little tea-leaf and no mistake.
000000000 LASTABILIT Y 00000000 • This one of the strangest games I've ever ployed. The graphics ore amazing and could hove come straight out ot a cartoon, loods of disk swaps required it you haven't a hard disk.
Dino Fagioli A former boxer with Italian origins. Basically a good ond honest soul, but often falls Into traps set by people taking advantage of the fact that he isn’t very well endowed in the brain department.
After a series of defeats in the boxing world, he boarded a ship bound for Japan working as a deck bond. Following his umpteenth scrape, he was thrown off the ship in Tyoko, where he is desperately trying to moke ends meet.
Publisher DMI Developer ? DynaOyte Disks ? 5 Price ? £29.99 HD install ? Yes Size ? 1 meg Our beefv chum meets Mr Bill Stickers... C3EEHJ- WORLDS OF LEGEND It upsets me to see how little time and effort it lakes for such a large company to knock out a game like Worlds of Legend. The small amount of documentation that we gat with States that it 'provides new players with a completely new experience in odventure role playing' The sod fact is that it brings nothing new to the wodd of Amiga games: the way the game is constructed is about os original os writing onother Spoce Invaders.
Can another role-playing adventure add anything new and fresh to a tired genre?
So now I've completely destroyed it, I should explain why. Well for o start Ws a totally unoriginal idea - how may games in the last year or so con you name thot entail you controlling four characters with a quest to fulfil2 Each of the characters having their own ratings for dexterity, skill and so on? Sound familiar yet? The first to do this properly was Dungeon Master, which wos ond still is o classic. Some games have followed o slightly dif ferent vein ond come good - Sobre Team for instance - but nothing has ever quite equalled the original Worlds of Legend begins when o messenger
comes to tell one of the four members of the group of the death of his father. This deoth meons thot the land in which they live will be ph nged into war. It is your job to mvesbgate the fatality ond stop the whole land falling into the wrong hards.
Aj soon os you get the message that your father has been murdered, the rest of the land aoes crazy and starts fighting. This makes it very hard to travel to different towns because most people won't let you m unless you hove the proper pass, so to get in you hove to bribe them or beof them up which con get pretty tedious because it's the some old thing time ond time ogain.
The fight sequences are laughable The computer does most of the fighting for you
- all you hove to do is occasionally moke the wizard cost a spell
or turn one of the fighters into o berserker. You con even make
one of the other cho octers sing a song!
Whot that is supposed to do I don't know - some prat singing Tie me kangaroo down, sport' to several bloodthirsty, olcohol- crazed psychopaths isn't going to have much effect, I feor.
To look at, the fight sequences remind me slightly of Space Crusade only not as detailed There are some really nice touches to the screen, for instance in the top left-hand corner there is a dumpy looking drogon with o briefcase observing and acting os o cartographer.
But as o rule the graphical representation of the people you meet is pretty bog standard ond uninteresting, and the animation pretty poor as well. The character control method is pretty simple
- thof's the gome's saving grace, really. Nowhetl does the
gemeplay invoke you clicking on arrows J moving your band left,
right, forward or book!
Which is one thing I despise about the Ofigiftdl Dungeon Master But you do feel very limited os tel what you actually hove control over when playing 1 Worlds of Legend I am, I'm afraid, very disappointed indeed.

The most comprehensive list yet produced of the games which work (or not) on the A1200 Sinbad Junior works for the ‘fair and just’ Caliph as an apprentice gardener tending to his incredibly excessive palace gardens. Today however he gazes upon another beautiful flower • the Princess Laila as she stands on a balcony high above the gardens.
Away in an eerie floating castle dark deeds are at hand. The evil Vizier, in his dastardly plan to rule the kingdom, has despatched a demon from the nether regions of hell to kidnap the princess and cast a mighty spell over the kingdom.
As Sinbad stares up at the balcony a dark shape descends from the sky, mauling and dawing at Laila.
Laila screams and the demon lifts off clutching the beautiful princess. Sinbad makes a desperate leap to grab the claw of the monster, but is left on the balcony flat on his back.
As the demon disappears into the clouds Sinbad is surrounded by the Caliph s guards and hurled into prison on a charge of sorcery. Now. Taking on the role of Sinbad Junior, you not only have to escape the palace dungeons, but rescue Laila from the evil Vizier.

Make sure you have enough oction points to throw them or you could end up in a tricky situation.
Gas mask An essential item and fortunately there are enough to go oround.
Bullet-proof vest Another indispensable item. It cuts down the amount of damage inflicted by bullets.

When reinforcements are colled in they usually come through the mom gate that you used to enter the camp, ll is a good idea if you leave one of your party on these gates to deal with them when they arrive. This acts as perfect protection when your other team members ore bringing out hostages.
Ter chance of getting on opportunity move.
When you are searching one of the huts and your turn ends, try to leave yoot soldier with his bock to the wall. This way he con see all the camp and it will be easier for him to survive.
If you do get shot ond monoge to survive, try to heod for cover. The two best forms of cover are the trees and huts so try to get to them if you hove enough action points left.
You'll probably find that McDonald is the best man for the job. You can also leave o medical pack with him os he will be in the best position to aid any of his fellow soldiers.
The first two hostages ore in the hut ot the bottom left hand comer of the comp. Trooper Jones is the best man to tackle this os there are quite a few enemy soldiers patrolling the area. Using his speed, he con get in the door sn: I t. Ste ficei 7 i nwbsu r

The main guards, unlike the randomly placed enemy troopers,
ore always positioned in the same place. One such guard is
always near the main gates ot the beginning of this level.
The next hostage is placed in the hut directly in front of the main gates. As this is the easiest hostage to rescue, Sergeant Roderick is best used here os he doesn't quite have the speed of Trooper Calvert The lost hostage is situated in the hut to the for right of the comp. He is one of the trickiest to rescue because of the surrounding windows and the open space. Use Trooper Cofvert to get the hostage out ond take him bock through the trees.
Don't take him bock neor the fence as the reinforcements will be oble to pick you both off with considerable ease.
When operating your soldiers, always try to leave them with obout 15 action points ot the end of their turn. This will give you o bet Even after you hove received treatment, keep well hidden until you hove enough action points left to make it to some more cover.
The more experienced players will find this level pretty easy to complete with just two soldiers, namely Jones and Calvert.
Although it will take longer, you'll be able to save your other team members for the loter levels.

Comms t r * i v ,y, - Phil Scndb looks at a system which ensures that nothing you send through your motion can he seen by anyone unauthorised recipient... | 11 nee you Mari getting to grips with tlx* practical aspects of Arexx. One of the first issues that crops up is the control of its output. Since Arexx is so k xk! With text-oriented applications, it makes sense to he able to present them attractively Various solutions have been proposed for linking Arexx with Intuition, the Amiga's windowing environment. However, these can lx- tricky for beginners: we have looked at them in the past, and
no doubt we will kx k at them again in the future. Today, instead, we will look at soitxihing much .simpler. o I am referring to the presentation of tcxt-hased output, which, at first glance, seems very limited. After all. The only output facility supplied by Arexx is the restrictive SAY instruction, right?
Readers of tills column will know that things an- not quite dial bad. Along with the SAN' instruction Arexx can open its own text output windows (consoles), and write to iliem just as il they were files.
In addition, by using tlx v called ANSI codes, you can spice up your display, w ith some contn l oxer the colour, fonts and so on. We looked at this subject briefly, way back in October 92. But there Is currently enough interest to l(K)k at it again, in a hit more depth.
Of course, the trouble with using SAN' is that it forces a Return after it has finished printing. N’ou cannot write data on a line, gel some more data, and then write it on the same line.
The way anxirtd this is to treat the console tie the CI.I window) as a file, and write data directly to it. This method is more flexible, and can lx- used to write either lines or diuractcrs. Tlx* pnxedure for opening a new w indow is very easy; we use the same function. OpenO.
Which we use for regular files.
The openO function take's three arguments. Firstly, a logical filc-amx*. Or fileltandle (which you specify), used for referring to the output stream. Secondly, the AmigaDOS specification lor the window. Which l x ks like this: De»ice:* y uidtb heigbt naie flags The device is most often con: - there are others, but they will not concern us here- Workbench 2.0 users may also use the optional flags, for instance to add a Close gadget. You can also specify the AmigaDOS shorthand for the current C1.I window. Which is Finally, tltere is a flag to say whether we arc opening for reading or w riting, w
hich in cxir case is w Before writing. RememlxT to test if your new w indow has opened successfully - something may have prev ented it!
Success = open'outpjtl,'eon:20 20 vOOMCO Our uindow' v') If success THEN ur(tecli(output1,'b(d it.') Remember that if you have opened your own console window it will close automatically as soon as your program exits. This may not give die user enough time to niurl VncK ri • • --: mr l9:«S:U r I. xT f U»«(i H) l.lll an read all the information. In this case you should either have: shon pause, or else specifically ask tlx- user if he she is to quit Tlx* Ixst way to pause is by calling the dclayUid function. A tick is 1 SO of a second.
11k* delay!) Function is not a part of the main Arexx age. But is found in the rexxsupport.library supplied Wi Arexx. You should tlx-reforc ensure dial it Is available, by having tlx* line: riUb rexssupport.library 0 -JO 0 in ytxir startup-sequence, or else- by checking tltat it is pre from within the program: IF *stio«(Librtries,'reiisupporc.library' THEN addlib('rexisupport.library',0,-3(1,0) Now. Onto a problem that is quite common once users opening (lx-ir own output windows. Suppose that a piece code outputs some text, and then runs an AmigaDOS mand which also outputs text, such as: «
success = ftpentconsol*,'*',’«• ten * writflntconsole,'Here is tbe t: directory listing') ADPRESS COMAND ’list c:' As long as tlx* program is directing its output to the same from which it was launched, you will not notice anvtht unusual. However, if the output is going to a different consol for instance, if the first line had been: success = open!console,' ftft;10 10 500 70 0utput window','u*) tlx-n the output of SAN- and writeclHconsole.) Would appear tlx- new w indow. Ixit the results of the AmigaDOS commar would still get printed out at the- old window!
The naive approach to this problem is to redirect il Fine!
AmigaDOS output to a temporary file, and then to read print this file out in the new window. It works. Ixit it s messy Tlx-re is a far simpler and more elegant approach, which not often documented (even some of the available boob Arexx do not mention it: however more of tltat story next iss when we start reviewing tbe avaibble Arexx literature...). Arexx maintains a logical filename, culled STDOUT, wl all output (including stuff from AmigaDOS) is directed, default (his is tlx- initial CU or Shell. In tlx* above example, e (Iknigh you are w riting lo a new window, .AmigaDOS is writing to
STDOIT.
The obvious thing to do then, is to close STDOUT.
Re-open it in your new w indow .Alter this, everything will af there correctly. F.ven the output of the SAN’ instruction wi appear in the new window, since SAY xxxx is equivalent w ritelnt StlXXT.xxxx). Here is an example: I* changing STDOUT • succ = clote('STDOUT') I* output is non disabled * succ : open!'STIOUT','con:20 20 250 100 Neu STDOUT', V * all output it nov redirected to neu uindov *I SAT 'Here is tbe c: directory listing:' ADDRESS CONNAND 'lift len = uriteln('STD0UT','ss!

• tan .* of 3m- Arexx also mainiaias two oilier logical
filenames, or streams, called STDIN and STPERR. STDIN Ls the
regular input, from which data is PULLed. And STDF.RR is used
when tracing a program. If the global tracing console is open,
it takes over as STDFRR. The ihIkt way of controlling the
appearance of the output is hv means of ANSI axles These are
special characters, included in the text, which will not appear
when it is printed.. They are most commonly used for creating
effects like Ixild or italic text, and for changing the
colour of the text and background.
An ANSI code is indicated by a Control Sequence Introducer, which is most often Esd (or lbSb'x in Arexx). Followed by die code.
9b‘x can also be used.
The ANSI axles for die control of the console can do much more than just change the colour and the style of die text. The)' provide full control of the console, including random positioning of the cur* sor, control of tabulation, insertion and deletion of lines, clearing of the display, as well as a few more arcane. Amiga-specific functions.
With these resources at their disposal. Arexx programmers can CU ling ole.
R in nds the make versatile and useful displays, without having to resort to GUI programming. These displays arc somewhat like the old DOS cursor driven displays or the Unix "curses ' environment - not exactly state of the an. But they do the job.
A fairly comprehensive listing of the ANSI commands can be found in die Amiga ROM Kernel Manuals under console.device. but any ANSI ckxnmentaiion slxnild list them. The axles arc a machine independent standard. ANSI is the American National Standards Institute, a bit like our own BS1. There are marly consoles and terminals that tonfomi to the ANSI standard, and it is widesprcad in the comms world.
In addition many textfile readers (sue h as Muchmorc) will accept emlxxkled ANSI codes, and display them correctly I have included a table of the most common and useful codes.

REALISTIC.. .GRIPPING... LTIMATE BATTLEFIELD SIMULATION ii-9 9U2 fe flj lightpaths seems quite promising with two disks, a video and a mini manual - all for £49.95. However after close inspection of the photocopied video sleeve - complete with a different font for almost ever word - ®y confidence slowly began to fade.
Intrigued by the dodgy packaging, 1 sat back ready to be ¦pressed by the contents of the aforesaid v ideo. Alas the exterior was only a taste of what lurked within.
VIDEO The action began with a spectacular example of Amiga videographics at their most cheesy with the graphics outdone [only bv backing music which screamed out for a vocal overdub along the lines of; "Hi my name is Seen, would you like to see my knockwurst?” (?!)
After suppressing the urge to do the overdub myself, a dis- | embodied voice of a thankfully anonymous orator began [ bestowing the virtues of the software to a now thoroughly | unconvinced voyeur, Apparently the whole point of this 25-minute epic is to explain how to use the move requester and more precisely its load option - the key to application of Flightpaths - otherwise | known as pre-saved Dpaint move files.
Over 200 moves await, 1.50 of which are multiples building into 3 varied collection of fairly complex and admittedly quite impressive manoeuvres, while the remaining T0 consist of standard single move ins and OutS.
In the case of the multiple effects, each move segment is loaded sequentially and applied to the brush offering a variety of complete effects with titles such as chute, bounce, leaf, ricochet and so on, As you've probably deduced, the moves available are primarily aimed at text with either complete words or their component letters Hying about the screen according to the specified effect.
In addition, styles can be mixed within multiple brush anims to vary the performance. The necessary techniques and essential hints and tips are provided during the video thereby helping to make sense of the rather sparse manual.
I'm not exactly impressed by a collection of move files lumped together on a floppy retailing at £49.95. Of course you do get a free fonts disk with not one but two colour fonts, each with four fill styles and a selection of alternate palettes - what a bargain!
Oh yes. And let's not forget the video - 25 minutes of lilt music and jerky graphics spattered with tlte odd Seala backdrop and transition - obviously in a vain attempt to add some much-needed glamour.
If you happen to be utterly useless when it comes to the move requester. Flightpaths does offer a viable solution. However if you are looking lor quality tilling, investing in either BAS2 or ScalaHVT would be a much more effective use of yoyr cash.
It's obvious that the creators of Flightpaths have a detailed knowledge of Flights of fancy Paul Austin takes off with Flightpaths and peruses Agfa’s impressive selection of video-specific fonts Dpaint and as a result would have produced a much more viable product if the video was a complete tricks-of-the-trade guide to Dpaint with the move files thrown in as an added bonus.
Quite simply, paying £49.95 for a collection of move files - no matter how clever - is simply out of the question.
If Mediascapc decide to slash the price by half, Flightpaths could be worth the investment for the dedicated Dpaint user, but at the moment the product simply doesn't justify the asking price. For more information contact Mediascapc on 0533 863501.
As old computer hands will be aware, Agfa Typography Ltd are the de facto standard when it comes to font technology whether it be Mac. PC, Amiga or whatever else.
Workbench 2 Unlimited With such an illustrious background it's not a total surprise that their Video Unlimited fonts are of great quality • if perhaps a little pricey at £45 for the 25 typefaces on offer.
Although the prospect of spending £45 might not be your first choice when It comes to improving presentation, the Agfa collection isn't a simple selection of bitmaps. In fact all the typefaces included are scalable being designed specifically for WB 2.04 and above. For those not familiar with scalable technology, such fonts can be scaled to any size you require without affecting their quality, in a similar vein to the PostScript fonts used to lay out this page.
This brief excursion into publishing reveals another potential use for the Agfa collection. Due to their scalable design all the fonts can be used direct within DTP packages such as PageStream2 thereby allowing seamless continuity between video and any hard copy that may accompany it The built-in versatility doesn't stop there - in fact the growing popularity of scalable fonts means that continuity can spread across an entire multimedia pro* duction with presentation, painting and publishing all combining to produce a uniform quality production.
As you'd expect from a collection costing £45, an installer comes as part of the package, however in my experience by far the easiest and quickest way to install any scalable font is to temporarily cast the installer aside and simply copy the l}fontname D}.type for each font into the Bullet ..Outlines draw in you fonts directory.
Once safely added simply run the intel- lifonts utility from Workbench which will promptly inform that installation is not complete, at which point simply finish the process by clicking OK for each font you've added. Alas it's not all good news especially for Dpaint fans as 10 per cent of the fonts in the collection flatly refuse to work with Dpaint However the fault doesn't appear to be with the fonts themselves as all work perfectly with other packages such as PageStream - perhaps it's time for yet another update to the DpaintlV.
If you're interested in the Agfa collection contact Megatype on 0759 58988 If the Agfa asking price is a bit much but you’re still interested in additional scaF able fonts try contacting George Thompson Services for information on their PD scalable font collection on 0707 664 654.

The Amiga graphics library commands can draw lines and shapes, paini large areas, or write on the Assembling windows Many of these commands used the address of the Window’s RastPort. Which is a structure containing all the Window 's options for drawing sliapes or prtxlucing letters on the screen. The full structure.

Hie routine SetAPent) can lie used to change the logical colour of the foregnxind pen. SetDrMdO can be used to clunge die way die foreground pen is used, relative to the background.
The Drawl) command will draw a line Ix-tween two given pixels on the screen, and tlte RectFill() command will fill a given rectangle in the current foregnxind colour, The Movc() command will move the graphics cursor to specific pixel on the screen. The TcxtO routine can lx- used to display a given stnng of Ascii characters, from a Martmg point at die grapliics cunror.
The cursors x (or horizontal) position gives the left hand edge, and the y (or vertical) position the baseline of the first letter.
Tlte NetKGIK) command can change the quantity of red. Green and blue in one of' the screen's logical colours. The routine uses the address of tlte Screen's Viewport, which is a structure containing all the Screen’s display options (see the .Assembler header files for the full structure).
The I )LsplayBcep ) command flashes the screen's background colour briefly - it takes the address of the Screen structure as input, A routine is needed to generate ra dom numbers. Higher level computer languages, like C, have a pre-wntten library routines.
Random seeds in microseconds Most computers use a pseudo-random number generator, which will give a series of random numbers, starting from an initial number or seed.
Each time the current number is modified by a bit of arithmetic, so that a different number will be generated next time the routine is used. My routine doubles the last random number.
EORs it with a constant, and stores the result- if the initial number is not seeded, or given a unique initial value, the sequence oi random numbers will be the same every time the program is run. By reading the microseconds from the system time, a unique number can be used to seed the random number generator.
The Intuition library routine CurrentTimef) can give this value, or a lower level command from Ihe timer device can be used.
The timer device is a collection of software routines like a library. When a device is opened, there is an associated parameter block which contains all the structures a device may need to handle incoming and outgoing messages.
The Message structure includes a node (which keeps the message place in a linked list) a message port (for replies) and the length of Ihe message in bytes. The message port in turn has its node, flags, its own signal bit, its task, and a pointer to the header of the task list.
For reading and writing the time, messages are not required, and most of the values and pointers are null.
There is an extended bock for timer requests, using values form the TlMEVAt structure.
The timer device can be set up, as in the fully documented source code of the demonstration program, and a timer request block initialised for the commands and the data, and the system time obtained.

Encountered SuperJam before, a brief history lesson Is probably in order. As the name suggests, the package is essentially the Amiga's very own version of Band in a Box. With numerous unique refinements thrown in
* hich make it ideal for Ixxh beginners and experts alike.
The idea behind the system is that you're prov ided w ith a five* p*xe backing hand which can then be orchestrated via a selection of styles. Your primary input is providing die styles and a suitable chord progression for your automated counterpans to Jam akmg with.
In theory, die quintet w ill then jam an infinite number of variations on the theme - no matter Ik w many repeats are made - and believe it or not 99.9 per cent of die time that's exactly' what happens!
This access to infinite variety is personified in the Section Design w indow , an area w hich invariably becomes die next Mop on the creative road after setting up instrument patches and experimented with the v arious styles on offer.
Once safely entrenched in tin* section window you're presented with the specified numlier of burs complete with all the virtual musicians mapped above.
You then simply punch in'out the various players as required and assign your preferred diord changes via a |K j -up requester offering literally every chord imaginable - and il by some weird quirk of fate the chord you require isn't on hand you can create your own in seconds courtesy of yet another pop-up requester Your newly created masterpiece can then he played and more importantly saved by the program's Snapslxx lunction.
Won’t you come Jammin’ 2?
Due to Superjam's tendency to Jam over every playback, the snapshot option becomes essential to preserve you favourite version of each measure within die bar.
Once active the snapshot holds the last playback for each instrument in each bar.
If the bar is then locked the playback will always repeat the selected variation. As a result it's easy to build the lx.*st section possible by simply auditioning die passage Ixir by bar to build the best |x»siblc verse, chorus or whatever... In addition, the much-hyped Turix sounds and samples which claimed to offer a stereo SuperJam voice direct from the Amiga sound chip fiady refused to do as promised.
Fortunately, this again has been revised and now both Turlxjsound - alias FM synthesis sounds - and Turbo Samples both work perfectly in stereo.
Perhaps die most dramatic improvement of the new version is four grooves within each style which in effect mean a song in a specific sty le can build and vary w ithin itself before the various players add their own emlxdlishments Thankfully Blue Riblxin have also added patch storing within each style, so now if you create a selection of patches which are ideal for diat particular style they remain resident ev ery time you apply that style in the future productions - saving literally hours of irritation and re-selection lor regular users. Another pleasant touch is the option to select between
two octav es when making chord changes which in effect means much more direct user control over the virtual musicians during the construction of sections.
For the musically disabled, an embarrassingly simple system entitled the Eas-O-Mauc MusicMaker lias Ixren added which in effect means the software will not only jam around the chosen chords Ixit will also generate a fitting chord progression for you.
When active, simply tapping in suitable rhythm on a selection ol four keys generates a fitting riff or progression for the selected style - spcxwi feeding at its most patronising perhaps but nevertheless quite handy if inspiration alludes and either studio time or deadlines are a little text close for comfort Yet another major innovation is die addition ol graphic volume and pan editing, with all die players depicted as icons within a small matrix.
W ith the assistance of die mouse diev can lie moved up. Down, left and ngfit, thereby adjusting die output in real time - even during playlxtck.
Although die title and game-esque graphics do tend to paint a picture of a glorified version of a cheap and cheerful Casio variant. Don't be deceived. I :nder the user-friendly veneer lurk some real power features, Like most quality pnxlucts. The closer you kxik. The better it becomes In die case of Supcrjam 1.1, this is personified by style editing options Ixiili-in to the software.
Flunks to this hidden depth, it s possible to dissert any style removing any elements which offend, or perhaps create new styles using an existing style as a foundation.
With the assistance of standard B&PPro editing tools, the imperfections can be removed from your virtual drummer s technique prior to recording the section thereby saving valuable editing time bier on.
The reference to editing offers a prime opportunity to round off the column with a mention of Superjam's potential as an accessory to the aforementioned B&PPro.
Although Super lam and B&JTro are pretty special as individuals, when combined Supcrjam really starts to shine. Once installed. Supcrjam 1.1 prov ides virtual musicians as tools which can be dropped direct into the B&PPro pipeline.
Although the oitsie graphics and title don't inspire much confidence, don't be pul off. For the amateur it's a great learning tool diat can be fun as well as functional For the professional it's veiy much a nutter of application.

COMMS Phil South looks at a system which ensures nothing you send through your modem can be seen by anyone except the intended recipient Why are so many agencies alarmed by something which provides better security on computer files, the property of private individuals like you and I, which they shouldn’t be allowed to see in the first place?
OK, so all this could just be hype to get the program noticed, but I don't think so. Why bother, especially as they’re not charging for It? The sad fact is that now international bodies have noticed computers and computer networks, they want to at best be able to peek into them whenever they want, and at worst take control of them completely.
Sounds like paranoid rubbish, but it's a fact of life in some places.
Eastern Bloc countries now free from communism are tooling up with programs like PGP so that the “police state", should It arise refreshed from its little sleep can't stomp all over their newly-spread computer networks.
You may not think such measures are necessary in the UK, and to an extent you’d be right. Of course we have a reasonably stable society and nobody really wants to pry into your private life. But... Secure contacts... Sources of PGP for all platforms are available via anonymous FTP on Internet and very soon on your local friendly securityconscious BBS. Or Email the writers: Philip Zimmerman prz@sage.cgd.ucar.edu Colin Plumb colin@web.apc.org he subject of computer security is one which will never go away. If it's not the guv next dwr peeking in your window it’s the government listening to
your phone calls.
It's a paranoid world out there, and none more paranoid than the USA where more people are frightened of the FBI than they are of the bad guys But Land of The Free. Home of the Brave is also home to some security which is for free. PGP stands for Pretty Good Privacy, an encryption software which is highly portable. PI) (with only marginal pressure to pay any money, son of guilt- ware) and very high security.
Anyone who happens across any files you might have w ill find it totally impossible to get at it unless they have the key.
The system is so well made, in fact, that the FBI want to make it illegal.
Yes, unbelievably they want to lorce all security software to have a trapdoor to which they have the key. Thank God such things couldn't happen here.
Or could they? In case they do I'd get a line on this privacy thing before it’s too late!
PUBLIC-KEY ENCRYPTION I got my copy from Internet, and it's really very impressive.
PGP Amiga port author Colin Plumb told me that a mostly- working version of PGP 2.2 is available on your local aminet site. I use ftp.etsu.edu in Texas, and the centre of the universe is amiga.physik.unizh.ch. in Switzerland.
'I think there's one in England: the amiga.physik.unizh.ch welcome screen gives a list. It's not part of the official release (a few glitches relating to temp lile placement), but it works well enough."
Indeed it does. PGP uses public-key encryption to protect Email and data files. It allows you to communicate securely with people you've never met. With no secure channels needed for prior exchange of the keys you need to decrypt the files.
PGP is a high security cryptographic software application.
According to the author Philip Zimmerman. PGP allows you to exchange files or messages “with privacy, authentication and convenience."
"Privacy means that only those intended to receive a message can read it. Authentication means that messages that appear to he from a particular person can only have originated from that person.
"Convenience means that privacy and authentication are provided without the hassles of managing keys associated Big brother?
Thai key has to be sent to the other person securely, or you risk it being stolen and the encryption is rendered useless So you send the keys back anti forth through secure channels... but if you have a really secure channel what do you need encryption for? This is where public keys come in.
COMPLEMENTARY KEY In public key cryptosystems, everyone has two related complementary keys, a publicly revealed key and a secret key.
Each key unlocks the axle that the other key makes. Knowing the public key does not help you deduce the corresponding secret key. The public key can lx? Published and widely published across the communications network, This protocol provides privacy without the need for the secure channels that a conventional cryptosystem requires It's complex but doubly secure.
It d(x-sn't matter if you distribute keys in non- secure channels because if you aren't authorised to open the file you can't use it. The keys rely on each other to decrypt the file. Which is what all the legal heat in the L:S is all about.
All this legal nonsense is very disturbing, as it is disproportionate to the impact such a technology will have on computer security - you have been able to protect files on your computer tor years anyway, as anyone with a copy of TransScript will tell you.
If like me you're deeply paranoid regardless of assurances to the contrary, you'll buckle up now and worry about people calling you a maniac later.
You're being private if you send letters in envelopes rather than on postcards, so why send your Email open to anyone with the desire to peek at electronic media?
Top secret!
With conventional cryptographic software* Xo secure channels are needed to exchange keys between users, which makes PGP much easier to use. This is because PGP is based on a powerful new technology called "public key" cryptography. This technology has been available to high end users for some time, like governments and military . But PGP is public key cryptography for the masses.
A single key system works by me having a key to decry pt something you send me. We both have the same kev.

Contort us via Emoi on qi»lhpB) compuliik.CO AH pncM correct at time * printing EAOF Fractals are a popular use for home computers. Their creation is a tricky thing involving a lot of maths anil heavy duty repetitive calculations.
In fan without computers there would be no fractals, because although mathematicians who invented the processes like Mandelbrot and Julia did long-hand calculations on paper, the true beauty of fractals didn't really shine through until the advent of personal computers in the late 'Os.
To create fractals in Amos you simply need a formula, and to pump that formula with numbers over anil over until you build up a picture of the fractal in question.
Our Amos Mandelbrot program begins by setting up all the program's basic screen modes and then starts the procedure FRAC to which it passes some variables about the screen size and so on: Screen Open 0,520,220,32,lowft!
Flash Oft : Hide On : Curs Off : Cls 0 Pen 2 : Piper 0 This lixip sets all the variables and then activates the proc: Do X=320 Y=200 1=32 Cls 0 HACCl,T,z1 Hiit Key Loop Then we get to the main procedure. All the basic variables are assigned, and these are by necessity floating point variables due to the fractional nature of fractals (fractals are based on fractional dimensions, a unique topological principle): Procedure fHACCl(,Y,jJ (Y=Y : CI=I : Ul iMf=-2.25 : nsO.73 : Y«f=-1.5 : Yll=1.5 Having given values to all the variables, we can then start to manipulate them and add more variables with
values based on simple sums: : Vls(YXI-YIII) CY CX and CY are equal to the screen size. Due to the nature ol this program, it scans the fractal in line by line, the height anil width of the screen is imponant to when points can be plotted and where tile fractal sits on the screen.
Next we have the program lixip which calculates the position Amos news Contrary to what other Amiga mags might tell you, Amos Pro compiler isn't out yet, at the time of me writing this anyway. It will however be out on June 17, according to Europress Software.
The new improved and bug-tested Amos Pro v1.12 is being distributed via the usual PD networks and should be widely available by the time you read this.
I hope that Pro is stable now - I’d like to think it's 100 per cent bug free, but then I suppose what can you say that about? At least now the compiler is out (or at least will be very soon) we can get started evaluating exactly what kind of program Amos Pro really is.
Once you can compile programs you stand at least a moderate chance of producing something serious with it, although I for one won't be trading up fully to the new system just yet.
I can trust my old Amos, it does the job and Is hassle free about 98 per cent of the time. Don't get me wrong. I think Pro is definitely the future of Amos, but like most futures it hasn't happened yet.
Of the points by doing the sums over and over again so we have two nested loops: for MO To CY-1 for 6*0 T0 CX-1 nUMWM ; HYSYHI*A*VI : D=Q : XM0 : !J=0 which contain this conditional loop, which returns to the label L when R* a and IXK.
Is Hd=X«*XI : 2WI*YH ; R|sU»*2t : U=2'U*Tf*llf : IhU-tMl : Inc D If M 4 and ( K Then fioto L And finally after a little curb to make sure D doesn't go above the value of 7.. we actually get to the plotting command. The line scans across the screen and the colour ol the plot changes as the calculations decide which pan of the fractal are Chaos is beauty at that point. End the proc and the two loops anil you're out of there Phil South jumps on the fractals bandwagon and shows you how to make them using Amos If D-Z Then 3:0 Plot B,A,» Hut B Brit A End Pror Once you have a formula actually
writing a program to plot them is easy. Fractal formulas are easy to get hold of, as most fractal programs are peppered with them.
The plot routine is really nice in this program, so simply strip out the initial values and initial sums from the first few lines of the FRAC procedure and replace them with your own.
Invent your own I feel in a party mood, so how about a little competition? Write me a fractal program in Amos.
2D. 3D anything you like, and send it in to me.
The best one will be put on the CoverDisk accompanied by a blow by blow in the Amos Almanac. Usual address, mark your envelope FRACTAL COMPO.

Tel : 0255 431389 Fax: 0255 428666 am one of those music
freaks who likes to make up compilation tapes of favourite
tracks from several albums. I've always used one computer
program or mother to produce inlay cards for tapes, but in the
past they've always been simple - and very boring - text-based
ones.
With the acquisition of a colour printer I thought this would be the ideal time to spruce up the collection, so I set about DTPing my inlays. As there was a considerable number. I chose a simple design which could be produced quickly, while at the same time giving enough flexibility' to individualise each inlay.
ProPagc was used for the design, but you could just as well use PageStream or PageSetter3 I considered creating a ProPagc page genie to automate the job. But in the event there was no need.
The first things to fix are the overall dimensions and basic elements. My inlays have a backflap that can Ix- read through the window on the rear of a cassette ease, a thin spine, a front cover or face, and an inside flap that folds into the case for a more detailed listing ol what’s on the tape.
Tlie overall dimensions are 16.5cm wide by 10cm high To provide room for cropping marks on the printout - they make it easier to cut out the inlay accurately - increase the page size by lem in both directions to 17.5cm by I lcm. Turn the Snap to Grid feature on and make the grid 0.5cm square.
Create a box 16.5cm by 10cm and position it 0.5cm in from the left and 0.5cm from the lop of the page. II the inlay is to have an overall background colour, this is the lx)x to shade.
Before we go any further, let s place the crop marks. From the top left corner of the box you have just created draw a
0. 5cm line to the left of the page, and another to the top .
Repeat this for all four corners. When the inlay is printed you Will be able to line up your ruler with these marks ready to tun the knife along.
The backflap is the next job. Create a lx . 2.5cm by 10cm and position it exactly over the left-hand side of the large box The backflap is where you will list all the names of the tracks and artists on the tape.
Now there needs to lie a fold between each of the elements of the inlay - backflap. Spine, face and inside flap - and I've allowed 0.1cm for each of these. So the left-hand edge of the next element, the spine, will Ix.* positioned 0.1cm to the right uf the riglu-hand edge of the backflap.
Create a box 1.2cm by 10cm and position its left edge at
3. 1cm. On the spine will go the title of the tape This will be
printed sidew ays, so when you are ready to do that part of
the inlay create a box 10cm by 1.2cm. type* in the text,
rotate it by 270 degrees, and place it into position over the
spine element (PageSeiier.5 doesn't allow rotated boxes, so if
you are using this program you’ll have to come up with another
idea).
Now for the face. Create a box 6.4cm by 10cm and position its left edge at 4.4cm Uhe top edges are at 0.5cm. by the way).
On the face will go the title of the tape plus a graphic to indiPUBLISHING vidualise it It's often nice to make the background colour of the face different from the background colour of the other bits I 'p to you Finally the inside flap This box is 6 lcm by 10cm. And its left edge is positioned at 10.9cm. The right edge ot this box should be exactly on top of the right edge of the big background box we drew to start with On the inside flap will go a more detailed listing of tracks, artists, publishers, playtimes, and so on And that's it All you have to do now is the fun bit - fill in the
elements with the relevant details, print it. Cut it out.
And gently score three folds between the four elements. Obviously the thicker the paper you print on to. The more robust will lx‘ your inlay.

CU Amiga. May 1993 'Tho quality really has to be Seen to be believed1' Amiga Mart. May 1993 146 WfiOfld]0W7ool48 Reviews of the latest hardware and software releases including GVP's A1230 SoaffiSMsoo 152 Dozens of second hand Amiga bargains to save you a fortune gefltosSKS %®0ffig[ifL 55 Animation packages go under the Amiga Microscope fflGEd UdDOSoo 1 57 All the best floppy drives rounded up and examined A1200 68030 accelerator card with space for extra RAM and FPU Supplier: Silica Systems Phone: 081 309 1111 Price: £299 (OMb) 4Mb SIMM: £141 It is one of the most significant facts about
the ) early AI 200 market that a host of third-party manufacturers rushed immediately upon the machine's release to produce FPU RAM expansions and accelerator cards.
With the machine's potential as a graphics and multi- media workstation limited by its lack of co-processor and slowish 68020 CPU, manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic dashed to he the first to soup it up.
The result us that little more than six months after the A1200's launch, the ambitious owner has a choice of several FPU and RAM expansions with a crop of 68030 and SCSI boards on the way.
Of the more powerful cards being developed, CVP's A1230 has reached the Amiga Computing offices first, beating the Microbotics VXL1230 and ICD's Viper by a length, so we decided to test just how close the lowly A1200 can come to its bigger brother.
Designed as a fairly standard 68030 board and utilising techniques taken from the A530 to squeeze more power into a smaller package, the AI 230 is a small card with space for CPU and FPU socket, and two SIMM slots. GVP claim the latter will enable the board to be upgraded to 32Mb, but few users will require or have funds for anything more than 8Mb.
Provided that 16Mb SIMMs can be found and eventually fall in price, 32Mb is a possibility with this board, but most users will no doubt settle for less.
As with the A530, a 40MHz 68EC030 chip provides the tin With the addition of GVP's latest accelerator, the A1200 comes of age... smelling is only to be expected. In tests against a GVP 33MHz 68030 combo and a standard 25MHz A3QQQ, the A1230 wiped the floor with the opposition, its significantly faster clock speed giving it an advantage in power, and the FPU socket will accept a 40MHz 68882, so the fully equipped A1230 machine will be capable of blowing away any A3000 or A4000 030.
Our review unit wasn't fitted with a 68882, so we were unable to carry out floating point tests, but there is no reason to believe the A1230 will be any slower than, say, a 40MHz combo card with FPU.
Tested against an A4QQQ Q4Q, the limitations of the 68030 chip showed up, with the board less than half as fast in even its best tests, but this every area.
The AGA chips help in tests such as WritePixel, which depend mostly on the graphics chips, but this really only serves to highlight the power of an AGA Amiga with a beefy processor in tow.
Retailing at £299 with no RAM, and about £440 with a 4Mb SIMM, the A1230 is capable of boosting the A1200 way over the head of the A3000, and at this price, it is bound to do well, though the surprising early popularity of the A4000 030 might dampen the A1200 68030 card market in months to come.
The Playroom This is one of the best presented pieces of educational software on the market. Inside the colour box are two disks, a manual, some colouring pencils (more later), the copy protection sheet, a registration card and a set of stickers which can be attached to the keyboard as your child is learning what to do - very nice indeed.
The manual is extremely well pitched and presented. As well as containing clear and concisely pre sented information on using the software, it also contains various exercises and extra bits and pieces to be used in conjunction with the software to squeeze that little bit more out of your investment.
What better way to show that you wish to give the very best value for money for your products than to include a set of colouring crayons and a colouring book-style selection of characters and activities in the back of the manual?
Educational software Supplier Infogrames Phone:071-738 8199 The game is set. Fun School-like, in a world where the child explores hy clicking on anything that interests him or her, However, unlike Fun School there is no difference between the environment and activities - you click on something that interests you and use it, returning to where you left off afterwards - simple.
Price: £25.99 playroom The parent can make this more challenging by switching the case, altering the level of testing and choosing words to be spelled, all by selecting the parental use control panel. A more conventional activity is the a few seconds slower than equivalent disks on the A4000 internal drive.
IBM 1,44Mb format takes longer at about four minutes 25 seconds, but this is unlikely to bother those who have previously never had access to the most popular PC disk format.
To compensate, standard Amiga 880k and IBM 720k formats take place at a good speed and the drive is almost whisper quiet in most modes.
Probably the XL drive's only drawback is its price, which at £129 is very high for a floppy drive. In its favour, the XL is at the moment the only HD floppy available for the Amiga and it works very well, but users with no real need for HD will probably stick with cheaper standard drives.
Those to whom the drive will appeal include those who regularly transfer files to and from PC, those who need larger floppies for 24-bit files Or other artwork, and hard drive users looking for a much more effective backup sys* tern. To these people, the Power XL drive will be a godsend.
Standard HD disks as used on other machines and will format them to 1.76Mb, Workbench and CLI, automatically adjusting to the new capacity depending on what type of disk is in the drive.
With the use of the Workbench 3.0 CrossDOS utility, or the shareware MultiDOS, the user can also choose to format Atari HD or 1.44Mb PC disks, a fact which alone will make the drive a favourite with IBM emulator owners.
Speed is good in all modes, and the Amiga 1.76Mb floppies format in about two minutes and 50 seconds, only In development for almost two years. Power Computing's XL floppy drive at last hits the streets this month, and becomes the first drive of its kind to offer every Amiga user the same storage capabilities as enjoyed by A4QQQ owners.
Formatting HD floppy disks 10 a capacity of 1.76Mb, the XL drive doubles up on capacity and makes possible the reading of 1.44Mb PC and Atari formats.
Installation, as one would expect of a floppy drive, is painless and quick. The user simply boots from the supplied disk and chooses to carry out either a hard drive or floppy installation, then reboots his or her machine, at which time a patch program will run at the beginning of the startup- sequence to insert the operating system patch, thus forcing Workbench to write HD floppies.
If the patch program installation is not used or, as in the case of a commercial game which boots from its own custom disk, cannot be activated, the drive will act as a standard 880k drive for writing purposes, though the system will still be able to read HD disks of either 1.44Mb (PC and Atari) or 1.76Mb (Amiga) capacity.
However, it is when the drive is fully set up and used under Workbench that it comes into its own. The XL drive accepts Though it is true that one IDE drive unit is much the same as another, it is certainly not the case that one piece of hard drive formatting software is in any way similar to another designed to do the same job.
Since the A1200 was released without hard drive or formatting software, the quality of hard drive kits has varied between the passable, which will prep and format a drive after some painful faffing about, and the downright garbage which simply won't work.
The hard drive kit from First Computer Centre is one of the best so far released, and it's all thanks to an excellent toolbox disk containing software from the experienced American company Microbotics.
RDPrep is an easy to use program which will enable the A1200 user to prep and partition any IDE drive (the unit supplied was a reliable Seagate), which can then be formatted from Workbench in the same way as a floppy.
What struck me as particularly helpful was that the icons for prepping, formatting, and installing Workbench 3.0 to the drive were numbered 1, 2 and 3 to avoid confusion.
All steps towards setting up the drive are painless and quick, and to top things off, the excellent Commodore Installer program will automatically install the user's Workbench disks to the system partition.
As a bonus, the software checks which version of Kickstart is being used and asks for either the Workbench2.0 or Workbench3.0 disks as required.
This is a neat, quick, and simple solution to the hard drive problem for any upgrading A1200 user, though until Commodore release their iron-like grip on the official upgrade path it will remain one which invalidates the machine's warranty.
Mixed up toy, which is a character containing three parts a head, a body and legs which are you've guessed - mixed up. Clicking on any body part will swap it for a new one. In time, the child will work out how to create complete characters, encouraging logical thinking as well as playful creativity.
Other activities include the Mousehole, which is a board game involving the child practising his or her counting skills; the clock, which shows what Pepper the Mouse is doing at any time selected by the child; and a favourite of mine - the spinner toy.
This contains two wheels, one with numbers on, one with objects. Spinning, say, the number five on one wheel and an apple on the other will result in five apples being displayed on the screen.
It’s simple, fun and very educational, teaching a myriad of skills such as learning to recognise a num ber of objects without counting them, the whole concept that "five" means "five" whether it's apples or UFOs... and a first lesson in the roulette concept!
Hmmm... This software, as well as being designed for the child, has the guardian or parent very much in mind too, which is partly the reason it stands out.
Parents gain an unequalled amount of control thanks to a Playroom menu on Fl (again, no disable for prying hands) allowing alteration pf the case (upper or lower) that the games' text appears in; various levels of numbers and letters to suit various stages of a child's development; the ability to choose between keyboard, joystick and mouse for control; and various printer options.
You can save your preferred settings, meaning that this menu only need be accessed when the child's skills are developing.
The Playroom is excellent. Not as graphically excel lent as Mickey's Puzzles, it makes up for this in the breadth of its scope. It's well presented, well written, and contains enough to keep a child happy for quite a while. Above all, it's excellent value.
Another winner!
[ StarJet SJ-48 printer Bubb c ct mono printer with optional battery pack and sheet feeder Supplier First Computer Centre Phone: 0532 319444 Price: £214.99 The low end of the bubblejet market has become one of the most fiercely contended peripherals markets of recent years, and since the release of the Canon BJ10, an increasing number of printers have jostled for position at the con* sumer feeding trough.
The Star Sj-48, in reality a rebadged BJ10, makes no pretence to be anything other than a cheap printer with good output* but at its present price it is great value for money.
In the main, the only substantial difference between the Star and the BJ10 is that the latest version of the Canon has a larger printer buffer which gives it a speed advantage, but for those on a tight budget the Star's £20 price advantage will outweigh this.
Options for expansion are identical to the BJ10, with an automatic sheet feeder and NiCad battery pack available for the owner with either a heavy print load or a burning desire to be portable.
The tight design of the unit, with its diminutive dimensions and weight of only 4lbs, makes it a doddle to slip into a briefcase, though we didn't have a look at the battery pack, so can't say how bulky or heavy that might be.
In operation, the SJ-48 is quiet and fairly quick, turning in a respectable 100 characters per second letter quality text. Roughly translated, an A4 page of mixed text and graphics will print in around three minutes, though a page of text using one of the two built-in printer fonts will appear in half this time. Print quality is superb for internal fonts and just about as good when using scalable fonts such as Agfa Intellifonts.
The downside of this and most other bubblejet printers is that draft mode is fairly slow compared to a dot matrix and there is no facility for tractor-fed continuous stationery.
Users with requirements for fast draft output - vital when proofing large documents - would find the SJ-48 virtually useless.
Others with letter writing, business, or other correspondence needs can rest assured that the Star SJ-48 is an excellent, low cost printer and a thoroughly good buy- SignEngine Sign making and cutting software Supplier Parallel Motion Graphics Phone: 0101 519 942 8822 Price: SS59 Possibly the first specific sign making software available for the Amiga, SignEngine is a curious beast combining the talents of a basic layout package with the specific requirements of a program designed to cut shapes and signs from plastic or vinyl using a plotter.
Many readers might wonder of what possible use a program such as this can be, but SignEngine is actually a well targeted response to a solid practical application gap which few Amiga programs have hitherto attempted to fill.
Signs of all kinds from company logos to advertising slogans, posters, and signposts are produced every day on thousands of vinyl cutters worldwide, and the flexibility of being able to generate and cut a sign in the same room cannot be understated.
Exhibition companies who design and erect stands for computer shows, TV companies who need quick production graphics, and many other organisations make regular use of either their own in-house cutter or go to another company for sticky- backed output. SignEngine makes it possible for the Amiga to fulfil these commercial needs for the first time.
The program is fairly straightforward in use. No drawing tools are included, so the user must import either a ProDraw clip format or IFF-DR2D structured drawing. Once imported, however, the user has an exhaustive list of controls over the final product.
Using the Arc-weld tool, letters which overlap can be merged, saving a lot of faffing about at the cutting stage, shadows, borders, and outlines can be placed around and below any object with user-definable attributes, and there is an auto-tiling feature to enable the production of hugr billboard-size designs. More than 50 sign cutter specrt controls are included to give the user as much say ove* how the finished sign will look, including everything fro"' the exotically named Pounce feature to an automatic allowance for vinyl shrinking.
In all, SignEngine, though expensive, offers a great dea more than the existing Amiga packages with HPCL plotter support and opens the way for Amiga infiltration in a very specialised marketplace.
The 17 Bit Collection Double CD compendium of PD software Supplier Almpthera Systems Phone:081-683 6418 Price: C39.95 If, as Kelly Sumner recently said, CDTV's time has been and gone, one would expect the software available on CDTV format to decline in both number and quality, but the latest offering from Almathera systems bucks thrs trend by doubling the number of Cds and halving the quality.
The 17 Bit Collection is made up of a huge number of PD demos, tunes, games, and utilities from the gargantuan vaults of one of the biggest libraries around, and at first glance looks to be an attractive buy. However, when one discovers the price and opens the package, things begin to turn sour.
One entire CD is given over to what is euphemistically titled The Early Classics, in reality a wodge of old demos which ceased to be state-of-the-art several years ago (remember the Red Sector vectorballs?), utilities which are often way out of date, and so on.
The second disk is a great improvement as «t.] offers more recent material, much of which can be very useful, but as a complete compilation this one fails to impress.
To ask £40 for what is a collection of freely distributable software is to ask too much, and though many I users would no doubt buy the second CD on its osvn, I'd be more than a little gob-smacked if the 17 Bi Collection made its compilers anything approaching i fortune.
AmiVGA VGA adaptor for machines with Super Denise chip (A500 Plus and later) Supplier Advanced Micro Interfacing Phone: 0703 511164 Price: £39,99 Touted as a VGA adaptor, the AmiVGA box is a monitor connector for all Amigas, A500 Plus and beyond, which have the Super Denise chip installed, and promises to bnng the benefits of non-interlaced high res- piution displays to anyone with access to a suitable monitor.
A hardware and software double act, AmiVGA consists of a small black box with monitor ports for both a 15-pin SVGA connector and the standard Amiga 23-pin cables. It ¦its in the Amiga monitor port and its through port allows the connection of two monitors at the same time.
AmiVCA's software is a simple initialisation program running off a floppy supplied with the hardware which, when activated, offers the choice of VGA or CGA screen modes.
Amiga monitors CGA, for those not familiar with quaint PC terminology, is similar to the standard Amiga 1084 display, and will enable the user to make use of any normal Amiga monitor.
The VGA driver software survives warm reboots, so the floppy boot disk will only have to be used once per ses- sion. Some sort of hard drive-based solution would have been better, but as initialisation is very quick, the floppy- phobic (all hard drive owners, in other words) shouldn't suffer too much distress, In use, AmiVGA was less than trouble-free, and proved incapable of displaying a strong signal on one of the standard SVGA monitors we borrowed for testing. The picture was stable enough and dot pitch appeared high enough ery to ble ny its Bit I a for a sharp display, but despite
cranking brightness way up, the little black box's image remained very dark.
Users with Super Denise-equipped Amigas would be advised to give this cheap VGA solution a look, but are advised to check thoroughly beforehand whether the monitor on which they intend to use it will be capable of displaying a decent picture.
Trying to lay hands on Commodore's £30 adaptor for the A1200 A4000 might be a wiser course of action, though the latter can be incredibly difficult to find.
Mickey’s jigsaw Puzzles Educational software Supplier Infogromes Phone:071-738 8199 Price: £25.99 You'd expect something special from a product with Mickey Mouse and Disney plastered all over the box, and indeed this looks a very slick package from the beginning.
Inside the box are the usual couple of disks, instruction manual and registration card. It's nice to see that the program is hard drive installable - so much Amiga software neglects to allow one to do this, which is especially important with education packages, where the differences in ease of use and speed between a hard and a floppy drive could be the difference between a child having fun or losing his or here patience and or interest.
Basically the program is what it sounds like - a collection of puzzles (15 in all) featuring Walt Disney's favourite cartoon hero. Of course, being done on a computer, there are various twists... Provided the program is installed to a hard disk, you can see on loading a selection of buttons down the right of the screen allosving you to choose a puzzle to attempt (floppy owners have to load puzzles from disk when they want them - hardly a major chore).
No picture is tied to any type of puzzle. You can select a picture and then decide what type of puzzle you wish it to be.
For instance there's the silhouette puzzle, where you drop darkened shapes into the picture - this teaches children shape skills. Or you can choose normal jigsaw pieces or square bits.
You can alsoselect the number of pieces - the range is from 4 to 64.
The method of actually putting the puzzles together is very simple. You get a piece to start with, drop it where you think it goes, and then the computer automatically "picks up" another piece for you.
You can move two or more puzzle pieces at once, and control can be by mouse (the easiest), joystick or keyboard, using the arrow keys. There is a timer option so the puzzles can be constructed against a ticking dock, adding an element of fun for the child who has cracked the idea and can do 64-piece puzzles without much effort given all the time in the world, The added incentive for finishing a puzzle is the ability to animate the completed picture on doing so - what more would you expect from Disney?
Clicking on the little camera which appears when a puzzle has been finished does the business here, and the animations are very good indeed - again as one would expect. This is the bit children will really love, as the pictures are brilliant enough anyway before any movement has taken place.
The function keys offer a good deal of flexibility, and some cheats, too - it would have been nice to have a way of disabling these to force impatient little minds to think instead of taking short-cuts- Helpful functions As it stands, though, FI will show you where a piece goes, or the entire puzzle, depending upon whether Mickey actually has a piece in his hand at that time; F2 rearranges the jigsaw correctly should you have completed it but got some pieces in the wrong places.
The other function keys concern themselves with toggling the puzzle grid lines, the timer, text messages, Mickey's hand (the cursor), the music, and pausing the game - only necessary if you're jigsawing against the dock, of course.
Finally, it's possible to print the puzzles out, although to do any justice to the quality of these 15 pictures - which are all shown in full colour in the booklet - means that unless you have thousands of pounds for a decent colour laser printer, you're best off admiring them on-screen.
I liked Mickey's Jigsaw Puzzles. It’s a non-nonsense program, taking a very traditional infant pastime and adding more in genuine flexibility to it than it removes in lack of simplicity. Recommended.

Free Post ¦-1 THIS MONTHS OFFERS: ccelerators aren’t of any particular use in 6 Amiga animation, but a hard drive certainly is. Large animations, especially if created in HAM mode, will consume huge swathes of disk space and should always be given the freedom of a hard drive to gallop around in.
Memory is also crucial, but only up to a point. The sort of animations created by most animators not using ray tracers are demanding on chip memory (you’ll need I Mb chip RAM for sure) but usually don’t require more than about 2Mb to run in, and a lot less during the creation process.
If the intention is to produce five-minute long demos stretching across three or four floppies, then 4Mb RAM would be better, but for most purposes 2Mb is ample.
Disney Animation Studio Coming from the past masters of animation, you'd think this program would be the best around. That it doesn’t quite make it to the top of the ladder, however, shouldn't put off the potential animator.
DAS is made up of three programs: One for creating pencil drawings, one for colouring the finished animation, and another for synchronising the anim with sound effects and other dips of animation. In effect, it works in a similar manner to the real animators - a fact that the manual is at pains to point out In terms of features. DAS can stand up there with the likes of Dpaint but it is most definitely a non-HAM package designed for cartoon drawings.
The onion skin feature, enabling the artist to see the last three cells through the present cell, is ideal for creating smooth animations. But if you want a spinning logo or a HAM animation, try another package.
As a paint package. DAS does well enough, if not brilliantly, but where it scores very highly is in its dedicated nature. Budding Disney's can learn a great deal about the animator's art from this package, helped by some wonderful Disney demonstration anims, so it is easily the best package for the educational environment Supplier Entertainment International Phone; 0269 541126 Price: £79.95 Spectracolor Basically a HAM paint package. Spectracolor was the first ol its kind to offer animation, and has a few extra features which help the program to give Dpaint a run for its money.
Morphing is one. A feature which Spectracolor boasted many months before Dpaint 4 was released, but the brush wrapping is Spectracotor's most unique tool This enables the user to pick up a brush then “wrap” it around a sphere, cube, or one of the seven basic shapes supported, to produce quire remarkable effects for a program in this price bracket. There are a few draw- fj u r Put life into pallid pixels with some of the Amiga's best animation software for everyone from beginners to Walt Disney backs with Spectracolor, of course, and the main one is that it is HAM only. If you want to produce
an eight-colour anim you can, but it will just be an eight-colour HAM anim. Which means slow refresh rates and wasted memory To add to this, the animation controb are a litde difficult to come to terms with, so unless the unique features are desperately required, Spectracolor is best used as a static image generator Supplier Micro-PACE Phone: 0753 551888 Price: £77.54 Take 2 A recent product and one which is designed more as an animation finisher than something in which to create the entire anim.
For this reason the paint facility s limited.
Instead, the animator creates cells and. More importantly, plans which key cells will be used more than once in another package, then ports them across to Take 2 for editing.
Once the cells are available. Take 2 can go to work on them using its powerful dope sheet and video scripting utilities.
The former enables the correct timing of when a frame will be played and allows the setting up of complex routines to mix and match frames, use them more than once, and generally harangue them into a sequence.
Video scripting enables the correlation of scenes and sequences as one large anim ready to be aped to video The most powerful feature of the program, however, has to be its ability to run four-level line tests. This means that the animator can have up to four separate animations going on at once in the same screen, and can edit or cut any one of them at any time.
It is the sort of feature usually found only in professional packages costing hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds. V could lead to Take 2 making an appearance in commerce*] it.
Dios as a valuable and very cheap line tester Supplier Rombo Phone: 0506 414631 Price: £49.95 Animation Station A package with certain similarities to Take 2. Animation Station manages to sit on its own as an animation editor anc special effects generator.
Like Take 2. Animation Station is designed to be used once all animation cells are complete. At this stage, the user bads the sequence into Animation station, and uses the power of the package to combine animations, tack other on at the end swap frames around, and assign times for the exposure of rv5 vidual frames.
Special effects, such as wipes, resizing, scrolling, and others can be added across a user-defined number of frames, mafcrj it possible for the user to create professional cuts and ed*s «* a computer cartoon.
Animation Station supports all Amiga resolutions r: screen modes, including interlace and overscan, so it it a gr** tool for use in conjunction with one of the more tradoom paint and animate packages.
Supplier Marcam Phone: 0604 790466 Price: £99.95 Deluxe Paint 4 Though a little slow as a HAM paint package, Dpaint has bee- many things since the release of v3. Not the least of wAidt il probably the best animation program available on the Anvga Version four's improvements to the already powerfw animation section have simply reinforced the package s position.
Animators can now use a "light table" similar to the Disney "onion skin" to enable the creation of smooth animations. *-*= all animation controls, such as frame advance and add frame have been gathered together on a VCR-style panel for eas*- control.
In addition, there is now a morphing feature which ci* transform one brush into another over a series of frames and though painfully slow, this feature can be a great aid whv animating.
As usual, the Dpaint perspective controls and move requester are still available, the latter of which has given brth to coundess rotating, tumbling logo animations. As an overal package for the animator. Dpaint 4 is number one.

Being by far the smallest, slimmest and
fastest drive we had on test, it's a suitable opener for the definitive guide to the best in external technology.
At roughly twice the speed of the standard Commodore internal, the Roclite is pretty impressive as well as being near silent Unlike most of the other drives it Roclite comes in either CDTV black or the usual vanilla.
Again unlike at lot of the competition it comes with anti-dick and anti-virus which when added to its pure elegance and speed make it a very attractive buy. If you're looking for a stylish slimline drive that can outpace the opposition and still retail at a respectable price. Roclite is the one for you.
Price: £66.99 Supplier: The First Computer Centre Tel: 0532 319444 Cumana Cumana drives have been around almost as long as the Amiga and to their credit I'd be surprised is the very first unit isn't still providing sterling service.
Strong, sturdy, reliable, boring, noisy... in fact we're talking the Computing equivalent of the Volkswagen Beetle.
If you’re not after the whistles and bells of more modem drives but simply want a unit that will last longer than “you will" the Cumana is the perfect choice and dirt cheap to boot Price: £57.95 Supplier: Gordon Harwood Tel: 0773 836781 Power Dual Drive As the name suggests, the second offering from Power Computing is a twin drive comprising two PC880B drives within one amazingly small case. Like Power's single drive both the If you're repelled by the designer label look, the Zydec drive provides the minimalist appeal and space conscious design that any environmental friendly Amiga user
would happily swap his or her 2CY for.
Zydec styling, the designers have been forced to add vents on the top and rear of the drive. Although this may initially seem a perfectly acceptable design, the cold light of day or perhaps a cup of coffee could reveal a drawback to placing holes in the top of computer hardware.
In my personal experience floppy drives invariably see more cups than Although small and amazingly quiet considering the lack of any anti-click hardware, the Zydec does have a few faults in comparison to its more bulky and feature packed opponents.
Because of the extremely slim HARD TIMES i This month's shoppers' guide looks at the most important addition to any Amiga setup - the essential external floppy... component units offer anti-dick, anti-virus and of course the Blitz copying option.
The drives themselves are totally independent as far as the Amiga is concerned and like all the drives in the roundup through ports and on off switches are provided as standard.
Unlike all the other available units the Dual Drive also boasts a separate power supply - an extremely useful addition if you're machine is already heavily laden with additional hardware.
It's worth stressing that the anti-virus option does not actually check for a viral presence. Both the single and dual drives simply disable the machine’s ability to write information to disk whether that be the Power drive or the internal.
Because of this it's still essential that your disks are write protected where possible. The anti-virus option wouldn't the average coaster. As a result, one minor spill could be a major disaster. If you’re looking for a basic but efficient drive the Zydec is fine, but considering the extra features offered by many of the opposition I must admit it wouldn’t be my first choice unless desk space was extremely tight.
Price: £52.99 Supplier Evesham Micros Tel: 0386 765500 know a virus if it ran up with a box of chocolates and a bunch of flowers, it simply disables the ability to write data - so don’t let your guard down.
If you're in the market for a twin external system the Dual Drive offers a compact economical and feature packed answer that avoids the power problems often encountered on heavily expanded system.
Price: £125 Supplier Power Computing Tel: 0234 843388 Power PC880B Now here's a drive that’s fit to burst with additional features.
Aside from working as a standard drive the unit also boasts an anti-virus mode which immediately write protects all the your floppies by completely disabling the write-to option.
The next feature is a slightly dubious addition which takes the form of a software hardware copying system entitled Blitz copy. As you might have guessed this isn't meant for normal Amigados copying tasks and that’s about a far as we should go with this particular line of thought.
Although rather long the drive still remains surprisingly thin considering the amount of hardware crammed inside - anti- click, Blitz and of course the drive mechanism itself.
As an all-purpose drive the PC8808 has to be one of the best buys on the market especially when its obvious flexibility is combined with a very reasonable asking price. Available in both black and vanilla.
Price: £65 Supplier Power Computing Tel: 0234 843388 Internal exchange In a break from the external tradition, the final drive in the roundup offers an even more important purchase - especially for those in the somewhat trick position of owning a dicky internal.
For those working exclusively on a floppy system, the lose of the Amiga's essential internal is nothing short of a catastrophe. If the unthinkable happens a fast and reliable replacement is a must.
In such dubious circumstances. Evesham Micros can come to the rescue with a replacement double density drive compatible with the entire Amiga range - including the A1200 and 4000.
Thankfully the installation is a breeze even for the technically inept thanks to very simple and straightforward instructions.
The drive unit is the same tried and tested mechanics found within the Zydec mentioned earlier - as a result, reliability shouldn't be a problem. Simple to fit, reliable and cheap. What more could an ailing Amiga ask for.

Index is a stand alone database of over 9500 UK and Worldwide

£££ s compared to obtaining the information from directory
enquiries w hen they arc charging over 40p per enquiry. Simply
run STD Index and type the town or village you wish to search
for. A search takes no more than ONE SECOND!! That’s faster
than dialling 192!. If you see an item advertised for sale then
simply type the dialling code into STD Index and STD Index will
pinpoint where in the country you will be travelling to if you
have to collect it. STD Index is also ideal for MODEM owners
ringing up bulletin hoards. You could save more than the price
of this program on your next phone hill by knowing where a
bulletin board is situated before calling it. £16 Wordsmith
Wordsmith is based on a 50.000 word dictionary and using fast
search algorithms can provide answers for crosswords,
wordpuzzlcs, anagrams, and those annoying competitions where
you have to make as many words as possible out of the letters
"RadioOncRoadShow" (Wordsmith can find 580).
Typing ‘ology’ will find 95 words containing ‘ology’ in about 2 seconds. Selecting ANAGRAM and typing ‘REEAJNRIDI* w ill solve this anagram in under a minute.

P. IOO New Learning to type has never been easier, why struggle
wilh the keyboard when you can type without thinking about
where your fingers are going, when you can touch type you
simply have to think what you want to write and the text
appears on the screen without any thought on your part. Touch
Typist will teach you to touch type and provide you with
graphs, certificates, and prompts to help you on your way. 402
lessons arc provided as well as a lesson editor built in to
the program so you can customise the lessons to your
requirements.
Touch Typist is ideal for beginners and will cope with speeds of over 150 WPM for those wishing to brush up on their keyboard skills. Touch Typist watches you as you type and even charts your accuracy for each finger.
