Acom were unavaiiabie for comment at press time but we understand a replacement video is due from the firm within fhe next few weeks.

WHY NOT RING FOR A QUOTE. SAMEDAY RESPONSE. (SEE EXAMPLE) Panasonic QuietS; We researched the cotour printer market at great depth to find 1 colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful output, yet at an affordable price.
Wc found the perfect printer m the and KX - P2123 quiet printer.
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. Wc found that too. With 'Wordworth' 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. Of course your might be the fortunate owner of a Desktop Dynamite Pack or maybe the idea of word processing isn't for you. Once again Indi have the solution with the alternative of two great games.

D Copyright HiSoft 1993, E&OE NEWSI by John Butters CBM operating costs slashed COMMODORE have substantially slashed their operating costs, but continue to lose money - $ 356 million in financial year 1993 and 59.7 million in the first quarter of the current financi.il year.
A statement at the end of last year's report says the firm's financial position and operating results raise substantial doubts about their ability to continue as a going concern.
Another says the company were trying to work out new credit terms with suppliers that had restricted credit but there was no assurance such arrangements could be made.
The loss was blamed on intensely competitive pricing pressure and economic softness in all their major markets, inventory write-downs, restructuring costs and discontinuation of the PC line.
The shortfall wiped out shareholders’ equity, which slumped from $ 325 million on June 30,1992 to a deficit of $ 53.2 million on June 30,1993.
Details of the firm's first quarter 1994 results were given with the 1993 figures. They showed that during the three months ending September 30, Commodore lost a further $ 9.7 million. This was down from $ 18.8 million in the corresponding period in 1992, as were sales from $ 158.6 million in 1992 to $ 82.6 million.
Recently the company have been cutting their costs around the world, with several European offices now closed and their after sales support controlled from Germany.
The benefits of these savings are now starting to be seen, with the operating expenses being slashed in the first quarter to $ 13.7 million from $ 39.5 million in the same period during 1993.
The first quarter loss gave Commodore a negative equity of $ 61.2 million, and no updates were given to their end of year footnotes.
"Clearly the financial performance for the fiscal year was extremely unsatisfactory," said Commodore chairman Irving Gould.
"The company have addressed their current financial difficulties bv restructuring their business in a number of ways including eliminating unprofitable product lines.
"These actions have resulted in improved operating performance enabling substantial narrowing of the operating loss for the quarter ended September 30,1993."
In Britain Commodore’s joint managing director Colin Proud foot said that although the company are in a weak financial position they will continue spending on the Amiga's future.
"It is essential to keep the product range up to date and development is continuing as a priority," he said.
Proudfoot added that the firm are confident that the success of CD32 will give the firm a second quarter profit.
ACORN have voluntarily dropped an Amiga-bashing Archimedes home computer video promotion after Commodore instigated legal action to prevent its distribution.
Amiga-bashing video dropped The tape was produced by the Cambridge-based manufacturer and was billed as a beginner’s guide to using home computers in the office and classroom.
Tlw Home Computer Minefield had been available through reply coupons and telephone numbers advertised in national newspapers.
Commodore had earlier obtained a temporary High Court injunction stopping further copies being sent out, and now intend to take the case to trial unless there is an out of court settlement.
Sources close to the firm say that although the video has been withdrawn.
The company will seek costs to cover management time spent dealing with the dispute.
They argue the tape gave a misleading impression of the Amiga, and claim it was made merely used as a means of knocking the performance of six competitor machines.
The firm say it implied their computers are only suitable for games and cannot handle more serious applications as shown in the video.
In court they produced a long list taken from a current computer magazine showing graphics, education, desktop publishing and accounts software for the A1200.
Acorn were unavailable for comment at press time but we understand a replacement video is due from the firm within the next few weeks.
Archimedes: Acorn video dropped after CBM object Buyers' new bundle off fun A BUNDLE containing four award- winning games from the past year will soon be offered to people buying Amigas from independent computer dealers. The Chaos pack has been put together by trade distributor SDL and contains the titles Chaos Engine,.
Syndicate, Niqk Faldo's Golf and Pinball Fantasies.
Most dealers buying stock from SDL are expected to give their customers the pack with machines bought at the computer's recommended retail price. “We have created a pack that dealers can offer their customers with Amigas." Said SDL spokesman Andy Leaning.
“It features the four best games of 1993 and is undoubtedly the best Amiga games pack so far."

Once converted to SSA format, the firm claim animations can be manipulated in several ways, made more colourful and run about 1.5 times faster than ANIM5 sequences.
BVCC boss Ben Vost told Amiga Computing that ProDAD asked his company to distribute the software because he had become familiar with the packages when writing their manuals.
Adorage 2 and clariSSA cost £79,95 each.

A DMA Peripheral Port (DPP) allows data to be transferred between plug-in devices and the memory of the computer without processor intervention, resulting in faster operation.
The DPP will enable users to plug in further expansion card and three such upgrades will be launched by GVP soon for owners of the A1230-II.
UMATCHED The first will be the A1291 SCSI Kit Performance II, which the American developer claims will give “unmatched SCSI performance', The hardware module and SCSI device driver can achieve transfer rates of 4.2Mb per second, and uses the latest In SCSI termination technology - Active Termination.
This is claimed to avoid the traditional hassles of SCSI termination and resistor packs. Other products will allow the Amiga to perform 16-bit direct to disk sound sampling and real-time video frame grabbing.
“The A1230-II is the ideal Amiga 1200 upgrade for users wanting the best performance or expandability,'' said Silica spokesman Andy Leaning.

Amiga advice over the phone A CONSULTANCY firm has just been set up for people who need up-to-the-minute information and support for serious Amiga software and hardware.
BVCC is run by the former technical manager of Micro-Pace UK, Ben Vost, who says the serv ice offered is similar to that seen in the PC and Apple Macintosh markets.
A range of services are offered: telephone advice, scanning, translation, public domain distribution, face-to-face tuition and software and hardware recommendations.
The telephone support service is open between 10am and 10pm and gives information on 3D modelling, graphics, video, desktop publishing and other productivity software.
ANSWERS The firm can say whether hardware will be compatible with users' existing peripherals, and if they don't know the answer to a question BVCC will try to find the information within a day.
Photographs up to 6in x 4in can be scanned by the firm at in a range of formats at 24-bit, and if the picture is to be used in a 16-colour Windows environment the palette will be correct.
Manuals and documentation for French and German products can be translated and even reprinted if required, and face-to-face tuition is available for first timers.
Courses on specific elements of Amiga computing such as desktop publishing are also run.
The cost of phone advice is between £5 and £6 per 15 minutes or part of, and others prices can be requested from the firm by telephoning 081-567 4623 Government act on child porn PORNOGRAPHERS holding simulated indecent images of children on computer disk could face prison under new legal provisions just announced by the Government.
The move follows a recent case where pornographic pictures of women were scanned and modified to make their bodies appear more child-like.
Children’s heads were superimposed onto the images to produce convincing "child pornography" of photographic quality.
Although it has not been tested in court, the Government believe that because the images were simulated and not actual photographs, the existing law might not cover them.
The new measures will be included in forthcoming criminal justice law, They will give courts the power to impose jail sentences of up to three months, a £5,000 fine, or both for possessing such material. Traders will face up to three years in prison.
"We must send the dearest possible signal to pomographers that their activities will not be tolerated," said Home Secretary Michael Howard.
"It's vital to take tough measures at the outset if we are to succeed in stamping out this vile trade."
Games makers agree on ratings EUROPE'S games makers have agreed overwhelmingly to introduce voluntary video-type classification on all floppy disk, compact disc and cartridge-based software.
The move is intended to help improve the image of computer and video games, following a year of media concerns over their effects on health and society.
Games publishers will fill out rating assessment forms which ask whether their programs contain certain types of graphics material and which of four ratings they think should be given.
The titles will then be sent to the Video Standards Council where the final decision will be made. Among other things they will be looking for extreme violence and sexual content The four ratings will be up to 10 years old, 11 to 14 years old, 15 to 17 years old and over 18s.
Although retailers will still be able to sell products to children younger than those for which the game is rec* ommended, worried parents will be able to see the guidelines.
ELSPA’s general secretary Roger Bennett said members who release titles without sending them for classification could face a ban from the association.

development of Emplani’s Macintosh emulation module steams on.
With Emplant 3.2, which should be available about the time you
read this, nearly all the planned features will be in the
program, which should free Utilities Unlimited to get rolling
on getting the IBM emulation module out the door.
The biggest improvement is that the emulator now acts like a “32-bit dean" Macintosh, which means you can use almost all of your Amiga s memory with the emulation, and expect increased compatibility with newer Mac applications. The emulator now supports direct file transfer between Amiga and Mac disks - just choose the file in a Mac or Amiga file requester and send it over: modules will be added for translating common file formats, such as PICT to IFF.
The premier development system for the Amiga (Commodore use it for AmigaDOS) now has a real plus - two of them, actually. The newly released SAS C Development System v6.5 now includes not only A top-of-the-line C-language compiler, but C++ as well.
If you haven't used C++, it's an object-oriented version of the C language that helps tame the obscurity level of C a hit. This release a huge improvement over the company’s old C++ compiler, which was marketed under the Lattice label.
C++ is now fully supported by the CodeProbe debugger, so you can now display C++ auto, static, and extern variables; display members of C++ classes, and display C++ source code in both regular and mixed modes. Now it's It is now about 20 per cent faster, and about 215 per cent faster for floating-point operations. Compatibility problems with Microsoft applications have been solved, Sound Manager support has been added, and UU hopes to get support for the Amiga’s serial and parallel ports into this version.

Other enhancements include a brand-new profiler, SPROF, which helps you optimise your programs by showing you the number of times each function is called and the amount of time spend in each function, including subroutines.
SPROF not only works on regular tasks, but also on shared libraries, dynAMIGAlly created tasks, devices, and nearly any other kind of AmigaDOS task.
This will come in particularly handy since v6.5 has several new features, including startup modules, designed to make writing devices easier. SMI IND is a new Workbench utility which will search for particular strings in your projects.
Utilities are included to ease conversion of files from earlier versions of Lattice C, and even from Manx A .tec C. As in previous updates, the com now produces better, faster code. V

There are over 31 new pages of documentation, bringing
reference material up to an astonishifl| 1,500+ pages. There's
now also over 1 of on-line documentation. The pac requires 1Mb

Top marks for an improved language release, and news of two competing Apple emulation systems in this month’s Stateside report from Denny Atkin The Editing Edge Texas-based Inovatronics have released an incredible new text editor called Edge. This easv-to-use editor is completely configurable - the entire user interface, from menus to keyboard commands, can be changed to fit your whims. Arexx macros can be written or recorded automatically. You can open multiple windows with different views on the same file - great for cutting and pasting in large documents. It supports all screen modes and
resolutions, and will open on public screens.
It has multiple-level Undo and Redo, limited only by memory, t he editor features blazing speed in scrolling, formatting, and search replace operations. The on-line help is unmatched - the entire manual is available using the AmigaGuide help system.
Inovatronics recently opened an office in the UK, but this product was so impressive (the first editor to get me to switch from TurboText) that I felt it deserved a mention.
And you don't even have to call Texas to get info on it: Just contact Inovatronics, Unit 11, Enterprise Centre*, Cranbome Road, Potters Bar EN6 3DQ. Tel: 0707 662861, fax: 0707 660992.
• In a previous column, I mentioned that the new version of CanDo
required you to contact Inovatronics to get the files needed to
distribute standalone applications, and that a licensing fee
might be involved.
Inovatronics contacted me as this column was going to press and said that the necessary files would soon be available on-line to allow CanDo owners to distribute their applications without contacting Inovatronics first.
The company does request, however, that you send them a copy of any application you create and distribute with the program.
INOVAtnnki give you the edge when editing A-Max gets colour Nobody wants a black-and-white TV any more, so who wants a black-and-white Macintosh emulator? Canada's ReadySoft have updated their A-Max Mac emulator tc support colour and the newest releases of Apple s operating system. A-Max IV is based on the A-Max 11+ Zorro II board, so you'll need an Amiga with slots to use it.
Among the emulator's features are support for Apple’s System 7.0 or later using inexpensive 128k Mac Plus ROM chips: full colour support (16 colours on ECS machines, 256 on AGA, and true 24-bit with Picasso II. Retina, EGS, and some other boards); support for multiple display devices if you have an add-on graphics car auto-scroll screens of any size; and stereo sound support and Apple SuperDrive emulation. It's a full 32-bit dean emulation that supports up to 2Gb of RAM. Like previous sions of A-Max. This emulator supports using the Amiga's serial and parallel ports on the Mac side. As a
bonus, you can save ImageWnter 9-pin and 24-pin output to IFF files making transferring Mac printouts to Amiga applications a snap. You can also cut and paste date between the Mac clipboard and the Amiga clipboard device.
Unlike earlier versions of the A-Max software, this update multitasks with Amiga software and uses standard AmigaDOS device drivers to access hard drives - no more need for custom AMHD files. Stock A150Q and A20QQ owners will need to upgrade their systems, as the emulator requires at least a 68020 processor. AmigaDOS 2.1 or later and 2MB of free RAM; you'll also need Mac System 7.0 or higher on the Macintosh side Pricing is pretty steep at the retail level: The board retails for $ 509.95; A-Max II owners pay $ 119.95 for update disks and chips; A-Max cartridge owners can get the board for
$ 249.95 after trading in their cartridge; and owners of “other* Mac emulators (read that as “Emplant’) can trade in their board and get A-Max IV for $ 279.95. Interestingly Emplant developer Jim Drew has claimed on various on-line networks that A-Max IV violates software patents he has on Emplant. And that he will attempt to get a restraining order to prevent A-Max IV from being shipped out of Canada.

¦ COMMENT Though doubters and cynics in the industry have of late begun to mutter ominously about the future of the Amiga market, the people whose opinions really matter - the buying public - have continued to show a great deal of optimism and faith in the machine. Two recent Amiga shows are all the evidence one needs for that.
The Amiga is alive and well and living in Europe, as the latest Amiga shows have proved A tale two Cologne, hosting the World of Commodore show from November 5 to 7, has always been an important venue tor Commodore events, and this year’s effort was no different. Dozens of developers and manufacturers turned up to join the box shifters, and the best of European engineering went on display.
Peripherals being developed by several German and European companies included high speed digital broadcast cards based on Jpeg technology. Mpeg players, PCMCIA fax modem cards, accelerators, and even a transputer card. Video applications were as usual well represented, and the number of stands running digital movies from hard drive was matched only by the number of smiling new Elite 2 owners Surrounding all this showy behaviour was a determined crowd of punters with bulging wallets and an eye for an upgrade. The buying frenzy reached such epic proportions at some stands that wobbly
trolleyloads of replacement A4000s had to be wheeled up to replenish stocks once the machine had sold out.
Shows By midday on Saturday, the height of the show, there was a 200-yard queue outside the cavernous hall and the security guards were forced to close the doors and send people out by another exit until things calmed down.
The milling crowds of waiting German enthusiasts were reduced to cheering throatilv for the lucky few who were allowed to pass through in dribs and drabs.
With so much interest in the Amiga, such a frenzied burst of spending, and the healthy display of top notch Amiga add-ons we saw while at the show, it is clear that we still have a vibrant machine in a strong market.
The leisure market may be suffering from PC and console competition combined with the games industry's determinedly gloomy view of the Amiga, but the productivity and videography industries are doing very nicely.
The UK side of the same coin presents an interesting contrast. At a recent sizeable show in London, the emphasis was on the entertainment industry as a whole rather than the Amiga, and the consoles were the most obvious force.
A 40-feet high helium-filled Sonic hovered menacingly over everyone at the show in a sort of symbolic gesture of the truth about Sega hype: neat presentation, but mostly hot air.
Little that was new was on show, but the assembled public seemed to be having a wail of a time, and there much more of an atmosphere of fun than at the German show. Games and playing them were the predominant themes and nothing the odd technical demonstration could do was able to dispel the atmosphere. As usual, the good old British box shifters were there in numbers, and more than a few happy customers could be found taking advantage of special show prices, so although there was a disappointing lack of high-end stuff (relegated to an oasis around the Commodore stand), there was still a
positive message.
Had we visited just the London show and missed out on Cologne, the impression of a slowly declining Amiga would have been overpowering. As it was, we were able to conclude that in the face of the stiffest competition imaginable, the Amiga is still jumping off the shelf and into the hands of enthusiasts all over Europe.
The UK industry's over-concentration on the games side of the Amiga leads many in this country to make pessimistic predictions about the machine, ignoring as they do the Amiga's other talents.
No-one has properly surveyed the video and multimedia industries to calculate exactly what sort of market share the Amiga has there, but if the 52 Amigas used in the production of Jurassic P irk are anything to go by. There's plenty of room left for expansion.
We enjoyed a huge boom in the low end of the Amiga market while its prowess as the best games machine was unchallenged. These days, with the consoles and the PC making a determined thrust in the leisure area and so much development now concentrated on CD-ROM, the Amiga is fortunate in having a solid image in other areas.
As the games side of the Amiga changes, evolving towards AGA games and, hopefully, CD32 in the coming year, it is difficult to predict how the market will develop.
Some in the UK games industry are certain that the Amiga has had its time, mostly through the inevitable move from floppies to CD discs, but as the Amiga has made a bold move into CD-ROM with CD32, can we share this pessimism?
We must wait and see what the UK software houses make of CD32, but at least the signs are that the Amiga will continue as a strong independent platform even without a leading stake in the games industry.
The evidence is on your TV set in the form Bdb l0H 5, Deep Space 9, SeaQucsl DSV, (urassic Park, and many other examples of the Amiga's use as a cheap, effective videography tool.
You might miss this sort of involvement at a UK show, but take the wider European view and 1994 is going to be a much better year for the Amiga than many of our games-obsessed cynics would have you believe.

COVE R D I S K program for ortiftf and Nf v horizons doiigiim Design Works is a structured drawing program, which means it works in a very different way to Dpaint and the other bitmap art programs most users have at one time owned or used Instead of storing its drawings as a map of pixels, rigid and set once saved Design Works uses mathematics to
describe the curves, colours, and areas covered by the drawing.
The method has one huge advantage over bitmap art in that the drawing can be scaled, rotated, and reshaped without losing resolution and without the jagged edges ( jag- gies as they re known) which result from changing the size of a bitmap drawing.
When the images are printed, either from a word processor or DTP package or from Design Works itself, it is printed at the highest possible resolution. Leading to crisp outlines and no laggies Everything needed to run the program is present on your CoverDisk.
Including a fonts directory, and it is With Design Works and Vidi Amiga, we bring you an artistic double act that’s hard to beat Design WoK M In •AUDI ere ra ty| lUMrLEft riJw Jijhit inj anA bfb ph‘ibb bI mnw vrvrr»Jensi imOOf* DfAffHljftd 1- i »-o w, (WJf K r

Simply boot from your normal system partition, put the Design Works disk in dfO: and type the following commands MKED1I DN0:PES16NW0RICS COPT DFO: ? TO DNO:IESIGNWORKS ALL Now just double click on the Design Works icon on your hard drive and off we go The directory you have created includes a directory with four fonts - System, Times. Helvetica, and Courier.
If you do not have these fonts already.
Fb D copy them to your fonts directory using the command COPT DHO:DESI6IIHO9KS F0llT$ f? TO FONTS: ALL Of course. DHO has been taken as an example, but if you have a partition called Work or DH1. Just replace DHO with this drive name in the commands listed above.
Right, let's start the program by double clicking on the Design Works icon There will be a delay while the program reads the fonts directory, then a window will open up showing a blank page superimposed by a grid, and three windows for the toolbox and current pen and Till colours.
If you have a copy of the ProWrite word processor. Design Works inter face will be familiar to you. But there should be few problems for those who haven t used a New Horizons package before as the usual hotkey commands do the usual things. Let s start with a sample document Select the Open option from the Project menu, then double click on the Sample Documents directory There should be a number of examples in this Author: Rombo The Vidi Amiga software on this month's CoverDisk is the full release of Rombo's latest software for the Vidi Amiga range of digitisers, bundled with the Vidi Amiga
12 24 (RT) hardware, with full grabbing and save options enabled.
Users of the existing Vidi Amiga 12 hardware should be able to make use of this software with the hardware they already have and those without the hardware can use it to process images or take advantage of the offer we are running in this issue to buy Vidi Amiga 12 (RT) at a reduced price.
As usual, the 12(RT) software has been archived so that we can unpack it onto its own disk, and as soon as this is over users should boot from the resulting disk.
The software runs from Workbench and on appearing will offer a main screen with the four main sections and two preferences screens available via button controls. Most readers won't have the Vidi hardware and those that do won’t need to be told how to use the grabbing screen, so let's go straight to the edit menu.
Click on the Load button at the bottom of the screen and select Sean.ilbm from the file requester to load a digitised picture of Sean Connery. If you have a non-AGA Amiga, this Ham8 image will not be displayed, so load the test card image from the Vidi disk or choose a Ham file from your own art work. Now that we have some data to operate on, click on Edit lo go to the edit screen.
Before any editing takes place we must convert the image into KGB data for 12(RT) lo go to work, so choose GetRGB from the list of operations in the centre window.
The command name will appear on a button to the right of the window and if we click on il the operation will be carried out.
PROCESSING Once that's done, we can start to mess about. For complete fiddliness, using every one of the processing controls in a random order would give you an idea how they all work, but there are one or two more spectacular ones we can go straight to.
The first process we'll try is emboss, which will convert the picture to a grey scale relief map of Sean's fizz. There are no user-definable settings for this feature, so just click on Emboss and wait for Sean to be turned to stone. Take a good look at the display and note that whiter areas appear higher and darker areas lower. Users can create very neat effects by loading Dpaint IFFs and applying this or any ol the other Edit features, so keep an eye open when using this software for opportunities where it might be useful.
Vidi Amiga 12(RT) Before any other operation is carried out, click on Undo for the image to be rapidly returned to normal. Vidi Amiga 12(RT) keeps a buffered copy of the original image to ensure that the user can experiment without constantly loading the image back in again.
At all times, the image's size and whether or not it has COVERDISK getting hold ot the ball, click on an area of the background It is sitting on and select Move to back from the Arrange menu Once the ball object has been ungrouped you will notice that it was made up of the red ball a spot highlight. And an area of shadow, which were grouped together to give the impression of a 3D ball. You should by now have realised that a structured drawing is made up of many component drawings grouped together to form the whole and that any drawing can be edited by ungrouping it and rearranging its
How much easier is this than rubbing out a line or filled area in Dpaint?

file to load it up. This is a simple drawing of the New
Horizons logo and we II use it to show how structured drawings
are put together.
Look at the toolbox window and you should see that the arrow icon is active. This means we are in object manipulation mode, and if you click on the logo itself, drag points should appear at its four comers. Keeping the left mouse button down, drag the drawing around the screen and release the mouse button, then click on one of the four drag points and move t around.
Notice how the pointer changes to a crosshair and we can alter the width and height of the drawing?
Move the drawing to one side and make sure it is more or less the same shape as it was imported, then click once on it with the left button to make it active and select Ungroup from the Arrange menu The ball in the middle of the logo should now have its own set of drag points What we have done is to split the drawing down to its next most complex component parts, and we can now drag the ball around without affecting the rest of the drawing For now. Drag the bail to the middle of the screen and use the Ungroup option again. If you have any problem for the head and body, but if we draw them as
white against a white background things could get tricky Look at the Fill and Pen colour windows on the right of the screen, and choose white as the fill colour and light blue as the pen colour so that we can see the outline of our circles Now draw two circles and drag or re- been converted to KGB are displayed on the right, so there should be no confusion when working with a number of frames, pear neat nv of ising M. Jndo miga e to ntly hai Go back to the main screen by clicking on the close gadget on the Edit screen’s window and click on the Carousel button. This option enables the
user to load a number of frames from an animation or sequence of digitised images and edit the order they appear.
Sequences can be played from here at varying frame rates, backwards or forwards, and frames can be moved to a new position in the sequence. For now there should be a thumbnail representation of the image we have in memory, so click on it once then on the Del button to start with a fresh slate.
Now go back to the main screen and load our image twice (yes, twice!) And return to the Edit screen. We should have two images in memory, a fact which is reported in the bottom right hand comer of the screen.
Use the GetRGB option with both images, swapping between them using the slider control, then go back to frame one. Click on the Cut button and cut out an area of the image (use the eye if you have loaded the Sean picture), then go to the second frame and click on paste.
You should now be able to paste the brush from the first frame into the second. If this doesn’t happen it is probably because you've forgotten to GetRGB, so don't worry.
OK, we know how to load images, more than one if need be, use the processing tools on it, and cut paste from one frame to another. The Carousel option now requires a bit more explanation.
THUMBNAILS When we go back to the Carousel screen, both frames should be visible as greyscale thumbnails. Notice that they are much dearer now that the program has some RGB data to work with.
Starting from left to right we can see the program con* trols which enable us to jump to any other section, then a list of switchable file specification buttons, and finally a set of controls for editing and viewing a sequence.
The top button of the image specification controls can be used to toggle between two sets of images. Let's say we load a pure 24-bit file which the software will convert to a IdesgnW® 7ff7 ?

image settings and sequence, and finally the file format
Clicking on this reveals that we may load a variety of images, from TIFF to BMP to 24-bit, ail of which will be converted to RGB and displayed for the user to work on. Vidi Amiga 12 (RT) is therefore extremely useful tor those who might have images taken from PC or Mac, as the 11FF and BMP formats are used extensively on those machines.
The next set of controls enable us to set the start and end point of any sequence we'd like to view and is accompanied by a slider giving variable control over playback speed. If you have a fast enough Amiga, you should be able to achieve 20 frames per second or more.
VIEW OPTIONS ()n the tar right, the last set of controls give the user the option to view a sequence backwards, forwards, or in ping- pong fashion, view a particular frame or play the whole sequence. You will also find the Del and Move buttons here These are most important because by using them it is possible to select a range of frames and either delete them or move them to another part of the sequence, one of Vidi's most powerful editing features. Mastery of these controls and the technique of cutting and pasting frames is essential if you are to get the most from the software.
Everything else in the Vidi Amiga 12 (Rl) program should be either easy to experiment with or to pick up as most of the features are self-explanatory. With a bit of practice, home video enthusiasts who take advantage of our special otter should be editing their own digital movies within davs.

two ways of doing this.
One is to save the project as a Oesign Works document, a process ¦nich saves everything on the page, but we could also export the drawing M a clip tor use in other programs. To do this, multiple select all elements of tho drawing, group the whole lot together, and use the Export Piet option from the Project menu draw a I tech- 1 and tailed hoose

Go to the Text menu and select the Font option, but don't let go of the mouse button yet There should be a sub-menu with three fonts on offer and an option marked Other. Choose the Other option and a list of the available fonts should appear. If you are booting from the Oesign Works floppy, you should be able to choose from four tonts with their various sizes, but if working from hard drive you should be able to select from any of your bitmap.
CompuGraphic. Or PostScript fonts.
Choose one you like and make sure the size is at least 24 points, then type an appropriate message below the snowman. If this were a New Year card.
Happy hogmany' would do just fine Click on the arrow icon to finish enter ing text.
The text should appear as you type it just as if this were a word processor and when you ve finished it will be present as a text box Now look at the text menu, which offers options to make the text bold, italics, or underlined, and from where we can control justification and spacing There are enough word processor- like features to give our text the look we want, and none of the features in this menu should need much introduction Note that justification is carried out reu tan edit existing drawings bf ungrouping them in relation to the text box rather than the text, and that if we choose
centred text, it will be centred in the text box itself.
We can change the text colour using the pen colour window and the background colour using the fill window, so there are plenty of options to ensure the final result is just as we d like Finally, let’s look at printing the drawing. As already mentioned, Design Works uses eight colours with dithering to that drawings appear on paper as they do on screen, but if you have a black-and-white printer the program will use shades of grey instead.
DRIVERS The Design Works (loppy includes printer drivers for Epson. Canon BJ10.
Star LC10. And PostScript printers, which covers most of the available models. If you are using the program from a hard drive with printer preferences already set up. Design Works will use them, and there s enough space on the floppy for other drivers, so DeskJet owners for example should be able to use the HP500 drivers we ve given away in the past Select the Print option from the Project Menu and the defaults should be correct. That Is. Eight colours, single sheets. 360 x 360 dpi. But you can change these if you like to suit your printer The toggle option from normal to high quality makes
for better output, but it will taka longer to print.
And that s all we have time for. Folks.
Design Works is one of those packages with which it is easy to experiment and explore, so you should be able to get plenty out of the program with this introduction Happy drawing.

The program’s job is to intercept all print commands from
Workbench or any program launched from Workbench and spool them to a pre-set area in memory or on disk to await printing.
An obvious advantage of this approach is that it almost immediately frees the program which issued the print command to do something else. No more waiting around for ages while that l page listing churns out of the dot matrix.
To install the program on hard drive, just drag the PrintManager icon to your Tools Commodities drawer then type the following command: COPT DF0:DEVS $ P0QLEI.DEVICE TO DEVS So long as your Workbench disk or hard drive has the commodities library, the program will run perfectly, All functions of the program are controlled from the icon’s tool types, including the drawer where print jobs will be stored before printing, and the interface is very intuitive so most printer users should have no problems.
To test PrintManager, select its icon and look for the tool type SPOOL- DRAWER=T:SPOOL and change it so that it reads SPOOLDRAWER=RAM:. We should now be able to load the program's document file and by holding down Alt- Shift-0 print it to the spool drawer.
If everything works it should take only a split second for the printing to be accomplished and you should be able to continue reading the document while your printer takes its orders from PrintManager.
Full details of the other tool types can be found in the on-disk documentation, but this is the essence of how PrintManager works.

running the program and scrolling up and down the assigns They
will be listed as one of four types: simple, defer, add. Or
path Simple assigns are the most common and art used by most
commercial programs which install o* hard drive. Defer assigns
are those which look for a directory and don't panic if they
can't find it. Add assigns add a directory to. Say. The LIBS:
logical device, and Path assigns just add the assigned
directory to a the AmigaDOS path Full instructions for this
program can be found to the on-disk documentation its® flfr I

it? We should now be able to see better, but notice that the
Shell window is no longer visible.
As this sits on the lower part of the screen it * not accessible if you use a non-interlaced screen.
Sorry, but at least all the gadgets are available.] and they're the important elements I mean, we] use director)' utilities to avoid Shell, don't we? If you feel the need for a Shell window and the extra window showing all devices and assigns, select the double height non-interlaced setting to open a double height window. Simply move the mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen and the lower portion will scroll smoothly into view.
With that minor sticking point out of the way ABCDir should be a simple program to use. It works in the same way as most director)- utilities in that you first select a device from the gadget above the main windows, then a directory by clicking on it, then a file. Once the file is highlighted you just click on the tool of your choice from the central strips.
Full instructions for this shareware release can be found in the on-disk documentation.
ABCDir Author: Marc Dione ABCDir is a director)- utility similar to TDM and SID 2, both of which have made appearances on past CoverDisks, and is an attempt to bring together everything the author liked about other directory utilities in one program. To this end, the program is completely self-contained and even has its own Shell window built in.
When first loaded, the program will open an interlaced screen using a fairlv small font which, though readable on high res monitors, will cause a bit of eyestrain on a TV or 1084, so our first job is to alter the configuration.
Look at the gadget strips between the two main windows and you'll see that there's a Config button three spaces up from the bottom of the left hand strip. Click on this button to reveal the config options.
The list is a long one, so just scroll down it using the slider until you see an Interlace option, which should be the last one. Click twice on this EditKeys Author: David Kinder Keymaps are small pieces of code residing in the DEVS:Keymaps drawer which can be loaded using the AmigaDOS SelMap command to alter the way the keyboard reacts to keypresses. If we could edit our keymap we could, for example, tell the Amiga that when FI is pressed it really means "Run SYS:DPaint".
The flexibility of a program like this is immense as it can be used either to produce hotkeys such as the FI example above, customise a keyboard for a disabled user to make typing easier, or change a USA keymap into a GB keymap.
Run the program by double clicking on its icon, at which time a file requester should appear with the available keymaps for you to choose from. If this doesn’t happen just use the Load command from the program's menu to load one.
There wasn't enough space on the disk for a selection of keymaps and we Figured you'd rather edit your own, so you'll have to drag the program icon to your Workbench floppy or hard drive and run it from there. If this is done you should be able to edit keymaps from your own Keymaps drawer. See the on-disk documentation for full instructions.
Assign Manager Author: Matt Francis Assigns can be a real pain for hard drive users. You soon have so many of them that the list is as long as your arm. And many of them can be redundant in most situations. To remove an assign can also be a pain, and keeping track of them is sometimes impossible. So Assign Manager does it for you.
The program is designed to be used as a Prefs editor, so lo install it to hard drive just drag the icon to your Prefs drawer and add the following line to the beginning of your user-startup file or startup- sequence Think you can do better?

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 directories, the quickest way to copy a program is to copy the whole directory at once. Use the command: COPY (directory) TO (ncvdist) 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: COPY C0V[HD1S 27:IIT1LIT1ES FREJ TO V0RKBEMCH1 .S FREft ALL Alternatively, you can dick once on the FRED directory icon 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 experience 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 disk, then either click once on the CoverDisk icon and select Duplicate, or select Copy from the Workbench menu, or open CLI Shell and type: (1SKC0PT FiOK 0F0: TO »F0: When prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source disk) in dfO: and be ready to replace it with your blank disk (the destination disk). Follow the Amiga’s on-screen prompts until the disk copy is completed.
Now put the original away in a safe place and use your backup.
Copying individual files How to make a 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 bool 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.

Adam Phillips reports on the rapidly expanding and often controversial world of virtual reality Once in a while, there comes an
invention that influences the way in which society lives. The car, television, the atom bomb, the computer... Now virtual reality is beginning to show its first signs of growing up from the wildly speculative pipe dreams of its early years into a fully-fledged, commercially viable and above all, exciting industry.
VR has the potential to be the next "big thing" to grab the collective imagination of the world. While television and film only offer a screen to look at, with audience participation rarely surpassing the heady heights of Noel Edmonds's Hou$ ( Parly, and the most involving computer games resembling a two-player go on Galactic Body Blows, virtual reality generates a multi-user, fully interactive environment where, in theory at least, the only barrier is the imagination.
At present, not only does VR challenge
C. ROPE, where the user could manipulate molecules bv the use of
3D image and touch.
Laron Lanier, the owner of VPL (Visual Programming Language) was the man to come up with a label for all this experimentation - virtual reality. His own achievements are as the inventor of the OataClove, the inspiration hir which he puts down to a desire to create the ultimate air guitar, and the Eyephones, head- mounted display unit for the home user.
Still confused as to what VR actually is?
Think of it as an artificial, computer-generated world, created by sophisticated software and entered by the operator through the use of advanced, specialised peripher- als, such as helmets and gloves, in either standing or sitting position, depending on the software.
It creates an environment which is 3D, affecting the three principal areas of sight, sound and touch. The peripherals monitor the operator's movements and duplicate Dresden virtually rebuilt the way games are played whei compared to the likes of the Amiga and Super Nintendo, it has an endless stream of possibilities that can be used in all walks of life from 3D walk-through architectural plans to a surgeon training for open heart surgery.
Contrary to popular belief, virtual reality has been around for over 20 years and has only come into the limelight with the increasing technolog ical advancements and due to people like Ivan E Sutherland, Jaron Lanier and |ohn Waldren.
HEAD-MOUNTED As a concept, VR was created by Sutherland at the University of Utah in 1%8 where he produced the first head- mounted display (HMD) showing a topographic map of the US. Due to the unit’s weight, the kit had to be hung from the ceiling, and it had a power cable running down the user's back with 50,000 volts coursing through it, In another American state during the ‘60s, Myron Krueger was creating the first VR games at the University of Wisconsin with the likes of Critter which displayed a video silhouette of the user's head and shoulders. A bug would crawl up to the head to be
subsequently removed by the plaver's hand.
In the '80s, Frederick Brooks created On February 15, 1945, the Frauenkirche, the Church of Our Lady in Dresden - part of the then East Germany - was destroyed by a firestorm. This was brought about by the heavy British bombing two days before which caused a fire to ravage the one of the greatest masterpieces of European architecture until its walls finally caved in leaving a heap of rubble.
Enter '90s technology to reconstruct the church from scratch using the original materials, sandstone from the Elbe valley and historic building techniques.
To help with the rebuilding, surviving detailed architectural drawings and photographs were used to create a model which was then turned into a 3D photo-realistic computer animation of a flight round the Dresden Frauenkirche.
The sequence of the church will prove invaluable for the reconstruction, giving the designers and builders the closest view possible without actually building it - a virtual reality.
VIRTUAL REALITY han the al thing far Virtual reality won 7 merely replace TV, it will eat it alive...
- a much lighter product than the Virtuality display - it will
set you back £5,(XX). A snip.
The VR technology us everyday punters have access to is in the arcades and appears a little unimpressive and arcane at the moment when compared to cabinet-based machines, with rather slow update rates and basic graphics. But the makers of these machines, Virtuality Croup pic, see these as only the first step in a long but definite route to achieving the ultimate in sensory experience.
The company, founded by Dr Jon Waldren in 1987 under its old name of W Industries, is the world's leading manufacturer of virtual reality equipment and software and has sold more than 350 systems in 20 countries at the healthy price of £25,000 each.
Waldren built his first VR system during his PhD at Loughborough in 1084. From there he established his now booming company and the following year won the British Technology Group Award in 1988.
The company has continued to grow at a healthy rate, knocking aside that old British technological neurosis - great idea, no business sense whatsoever - and has them in the virtual world in real time, thus giving rise to an immersive experience, in which the operator is able to manipulate his surroundings via the computer.
At present, there are several peripherals that can be used in VR.
These are split into two categories
- the sensors and the effectors.
Sensors send your signals to the computer and affect your actions in cyberspace (a computer-generated virtual world) while effectors send hack data to the user.
An HMD, where the player sees the action, is an effector, while joysticks am sensors. The hand movement devices found so far in the British arcades are the basic joysticks which have one button to fire and the other to move in the direction you are looking.
Data gloves, available in America for some time, let your fingers dictate your movements. The next stage is a glove that will enable the user to "feel" their environment through the use of pressure pads in the peripheral.
Beyond this, the biggest and potentially most important immersive effector sensor is the full body data suit.
Virtual Presence's version features % sensors to track joint and body movement.
With the titanium wiring, the suit is very light and if bought with their latest HMD ¦ VIRTUAL REALITY “With respect to physical side effects of VR, such as eye strain, any poorly designed equipment will introduce eye strain. It is the responsibility of good engineering and correct health and safety tests to ensure products do not reach the market in such a state.'
Earlier this year the Independent launched an attack on Sega and its prototype designed for home use. The Sega Virtua VR HMD. For being one of the guilty parties in the eye strain wars that could possibly cause squints in young children if used for too long.
Whether this was true or not is no longer the issue because the equipment the tabloid-style article wrote about was still being researched and tested in the labs and was not available to the general public.
Any hopes though of the Sega's VR unit being released before Christmas are highly unlikely. It’s possible that the machine will now be delayed until late Spring 1994 The reason given is the continuation of extensive tests which are taking longer than previously thought, and to improve the games that were to be released with the system. Possibly after the very mixed reaction they received.
With the Health and Safety Executive sinking £200.000 into further research on the possible side effects of VR use, it's obvious the matter is being dealt with seriously, and all parties are apparently giving full co-operation.
Machine it takes to run the future of entertainment as we know it. It's none other than an Amiga. Although stuffed to the brim with graphics cards and boards introducing processing technology many times in excess of the basic unit, it's still a Commodore at heart... With Virtuality Group pic's financial holdings well and truly anchored, how does John Waldren see VR's future?
"We envisage the technology becomket The deal is to produce a high performance virtual reality game which, in the words of the ever-modest John Waldren, will be "a landmark within the arcade entertainment field".
To top all of this, the company was recently floated on the stock market and fetched £10 million from the newly acquired shareholders with premiums at 73p on the first day.
You may be wondering what kind of ing significantly lighter and some. In terms of the mo aspect, that of the software at the moment entertainment applidfl and other VR applications are very era!
"As we speak, these are becoming!
More sophisticated in their complefl and in their usability. It is critica since it's been down here, sometimes playing games like Gridbusters two or three times a day and have had no problem. Another guy has been using it for two years and is perfectly tine. We've never had any complaints..." What do you expect to see over the next few months?
“Over the space of six months [since]... Combat Zone was released to the latest one, Gridbusters, (they've added] digitised photographs and a totally interactive soundtrack which adjusts to the player's situation, telling you where to go and what to look at.
“I can see that side developing first and the graphic capabilities afterwards. In the future. I can see virtual reality nvalling the arcades."
This may all sound very enticing, but what about the actual prices of playing in gamer heaven? For the addictive players among you. It'll cost £120 for an eight-hour session on legend Quest down to a more £4.50 for 15 minutes.
For the same amount of money, the time fluctuates on different games. It may sound a little o*T dear side but with member and guest lists of wen fl 7,000 customers, virtual reality seems to have ma solid impact on the arcade-playing public already So what are the actual games like and are they ¦ the money?

Laserquest in Nottingham is one of a chain of nationwide sites boasting an extensive range of VR games.
Started nearly two years ago. The leisure complex has gone from strength to strength and now has four fully operational VR pods with a mere accumulative cost of £100.000. On entering the premises, you’d expect to see some huge towering piece of equipment to justify the price but in fact, after having a good look around, my eyes finally stumbled across a television, four Amigas with accessories and four hollow artificial tree stumps in which the players stand wearing the VR headgear and clutching their joysticks.
Before testing the alien-looking equipment, I asked VR and laser quest marshal Paul Shelton his opinions on virtual reality.
How are people reacting to VR?
“It’s been a positive response from the Laserquest players; the general public really enjoy playing as well. It’S ideal for corporate events where there's a real sense of who can outwit level 6 of Legend Quest or beat the alien in Grid Warriors ” What do you think of the possible side effects of VR such as eyestrain?
“I’ve been playing virtual reality for nearly a year now The HMD has recently come under attack in the ' press and under research by John Wann and his colleagues at the University of Edinburgh, among others. Worries have been aired that the HMDs may well cause binocular stress on users' eyes and cause nausea and headaches, among other symptoms After setting up a test involving 20 young adults seated on a “tethered* cycle and asked lo ride round a virtual landscape with signs, buildings and bridges, over half the subjects reported blurred vision and one individual's eyes took 40 minutes to
return to their normal state.
The equipment they tested was the VPLIX Eyephone with Fresnel lens which was regarded by many VR companies as a poor comparison to their own hardware Wann also claims that the similar problems have arisen with the LEEP lens systems, and that further research is required. Virtuality had this to say about the subject: secured contracts with some of the world's biggest names such as MCA in America, Nabisco and Budweiser, among others.
The real ace in Virtuality's pack, though, is the recently attained contract with Sega, when Waldrcn and company sold the first significant operating system licence to the Japanese entertainment giant.

Were able to walk through and see their future homes, and during the two days that the VR system was in use, more houses were sold than in any previous two-dav period.
Clive jones of Division said: "...if you look at some of the ways (virtual reality] is going to help people interface with computers and some of Ihe ways in which it's going to allow multimedia to come to life which it hasn't done before, it's more than just another step - it’s quite a radical improvement."
LEISURE Stateside, where things move faster and cost more, companies like Evans and Sutherland - the makers of military and scientific simulations for industry - have decided to turn their talents to the entertainment sector.
Unlike Virtually and Division, whose philosophies are to make VR as affordable as possible for the mass market, E&5 have pulled out all the stops and created Virtual Adventures for a bargain basement price tag of $ 1 million each, to be Exhibitions in VR Imagine a system that combines virtual reality, video and sound, all squeezed into a virtual environment displaying 24 exhibits in space that normally only fits one.
The Virtual Exhibition System (VES) is the brainchild of Perry Hubber. A designer working for design company Faberushi.
Ft's a multimedia experience in the true sense of the word, where the user is able to move via a custom controller called a Spaceball through a virtual exhibition. A series of computers are lined up which, when approached, play a short video clip describing the particular project.
“VES helps make virtual reality a more usable and accessible technology," Huber says. "For the first time, many companies can see the potential benefits of VR. And more importantly, can afford to use them,’’ While using a non-immersive VGA monitor. Huber opted for an Amiga 1500 fit* ted with an accelerator card, connected to a Laserdisc player. He intends to upgrade to a Motorola 68040*based Amiga 4000 in the future. My, my, that Commodore machine gets everywhere.
Installed in major theme parks in 1994.
The company’s idea is to move away from the HMD and into a more sociable and interactive environment where a group of people Work together to win the game.
Their first product is a game where a team must work together to save the Loch Ness monster using a vehicle containing six people performing different tasks - one pilot, a navigator and robot arm operator among others.
At the recent S1GGRAPH show in America, the world's largest computer graphics get-together, Evans and Sutherland stole the event with their breathtaking virtual reality hang-glider ride which allows two participants to fly simultaneously through separate urban landscapes. Even though this was put together purely for the show, E&S have plans to produce a line of machines for under $ 100,000 each.
While there are only a handful of companies through out the world in YR production, many other industries are becoming increasingly interested in the uses for this new medium.
According to America's Ben Delany, editor of the CylvrEdge journal (a paper specialising in all things cyberspace and virtual), among many of the proposed applications is telepresence where instead of a human going into a potential lethal situation such as a massive fire in a petroleum refinery or a meltdown in a nuclear plant, a remote-controlled robot is sent in operated by a person wearing a data suit which causes the machine to mimic their actions.
VR's uses spread as far as psychology where patients will be able to talk to an unassuming virtual therapist controlled by people out of sight - potentially useful in dealing with highly disturbed children.
GENETIC Other more controversial YR techniques will be in genetic engineering where the engineer will move about in the fish-tank-like setting of a virtual cell, grabbing and moving organelles at will.
At the same time, laser cytometres will be performing the actual manipulations on real, living cells, copying the actions of the operator.
You may have read articles and press releases about virtual reality before and grown tired of the endless stream of hyperbole: "It's the dawning of a new age,”... "The world will never be the same again,"... "It's not life as we know it, Jim,” to Ihe other extreme: "It'll destroy society, crush the souls of children, annihilate human communication..." Although the above comments are on the extreme side, whatever VR is capable of, it is up to the people who develop and use it to make sure that this powerful medium that's coming of age is used responsibly and creatively- While virtual reality
may be just another step in technology's evolutionary ladder, the signs are that this is no flash* in-the-pan craze, and that we'll be scein more of VR in the months and years come.
In the words of Clive Jones at Divisioa questioned on the future of virtual reality "Has it reached the unstoppable roll? It very, very close to it."

Department EISaD New Street • Alfreto Derbyshire • DE55 71 Fax: 0773 83104 ACO One of the great things about the Amiga is its ability to use sampled sounds; you only have to listen to a typical game or demo to hear what can be achieved.
Sound sampling, for those of you who are new to such things, involves a rather strange translation process whereby recorded sounds are converted into sets of numbers.
In most cases this is achieved by plugging a box called a sampler or sound digitiser into the Amiga's parallel port, connecting a sound source (microphone, CD player and so on) to it, and then using a piece of software to collect and save the digitised sound.
Reasonable hardware and software can be obtained quite cheaply and although getting good results may take a little practice, the sampling process itself is easy to perform.
Now you certainly don't need to be technically minded to benefit from the Amiga's sound sampling facilities, but most users do seem to feel more comfortable with the jargon that they inevitably encounter in magazines and books if they know something about how digitisers work and how samples are stored. So, with this in mind, here’s a more detailed overview of the sampling process.
A single musical note can be thought of as consisting of sound waves of a given pilch (frequency) and loudness (amplitude). When you listen to a piece of music, or anything else come to that, what you are listening to is a mass of these waves containing many different frequencies and amplitudes.
In making a tape recording of, say, a song, the intensities of each part of the waveform are continuously measured and stored (as varying strength magnetic information) on the tape. These types of continuous measurements are called "analogue'' recording techniques and are so named because an ever-changing signal is being measured in a way that allows the full details of the input signal to be recorded (in theory at least).
Sound digitisers work on rather a different principle - they use special hardware which grabs and measures, ie samples, the input signal's amplitude information at specified intervals.
This usually happens many thousands of times a second and by storing the numerical values which represent the amplitude of the signal, a digital copy of the original sound is built up. The key point to approach is that because the information ends up being stored as a series of numbers in memory it becomes amenable to processing by computer.
As sound editing is then reduced to just changing the numbers associated with the digitised waveform, it becomes possible to achieve effects which are cither difficult or impossible to produce with conventional analogue recording techniques.
Needless to say, the quality of any sample depends on the accuracy of the digitisation process and one of the factors to consider here is the resolution of the numbers used to define the waveform amplitude - it should be pretty obvious that sample quality is going to be dependent on the range of numbers used to represent the amplitude measurements.
Safer ( EIGHT-BIT Exciting, yes, but you need to know the basics before plugging outside sounds into your Amiga. Paul Overaa explains why your Amiga and a CD player have a lot in common... The Amiga's internal sound chips are based on the use of 8-bit sound samples and this is why most Amiga samplers perform amplitude digitisation to an accuracy of 8- bits (this means that the numerical amplitude values found in the stored sound sample data lie in the range -128 to +127).
Although the Amiga’s internal sound chips are quite impressive, this 8-bit limitation does of course put a restriction on the playback quality that can be achieved when sounds are regenerated.
Compact discs, which incidentally also use this type of digitised sound technology, are rather better in this resped because they use a 16-bit sampling amplitude resolution.
This means that CD digitised data contains correspondingly more waveform detail (hence the playback sound quality is better).
Sixteen-bit samplers are available for the Amiga but, with one notable exception (namely Microdeal's Clarity 16), they're Still relatively expensive. They also have another disadvantage - because each amplitude value uses 16 bits (2 bvtes) instead of 8 bits (1 byte), they use up twice as much memory!
The sampling rate, ie the frequency at which signal measurements arc taken, is the other factor which governs the resulting sample quality'. Fast sampling rates would intuitively be expected to give better waveform detail and this is exactly what is found in practice.
Amiga digitisers are very respectable in this resped. Microdeal's Megalosound sampler, for instance, can collect mono samples at rates of 40 to 70kHz and even stereo samples can be colleded at rates of 34 to 39kHz.
The relation between sampling rate and playback rate is quite easy to understand. If say you sample a musical note using a 20kHz sampling frequency, and then plav that sample back using the same frequency, the digital copy of the note will sound the same as the original because you're reconstructing the waveform in the same time space.
If however you double the playback speed then you are effectively doubling the frequency' of all of the elements in the waveform and since a doubling of frequency means an increase of one odave in pitch, the digitally recorded sound will end up sound- ing an octave higher. Half the playback frequency and the note will sound an octave lower, and so on.
DIRECT-TO-DISK Amiga chip memory is always at a premium and since most samplers use this memory as their sample workspace, this places a limit on the size of the sample that can be taken. Some of the expensive 16-bit samplers solve this limitation by offering direct-to-hard-disk sample taking and this facility has recently filtered down to more affordable digitisers as well.
The hardware performance of direct-to- disk units tend to vary according to the efficiency of the hard disk being used but, by way of example, the Megalosound unit can often achieve speeds of around 18kHz when recording stereo samples in this way.
Irrespective of whatever sampling hardware you choose, or can afford, to buy, there are some general guidelines to bear in mind.
Firstly, none of these units can work mira- des and if the signal fed into the digitiser is poor then you can bet your bottom dollar that the results are going to be equally poor.
You can get great results from CD decks, records and tape machines but if you want to use a microphone for recording voices and so on then a little more care Is needed.
Microphones, such as the those provided with cheap portable tape machines, arc best avoided (like the plague). If you need to sample microphone-based input then try and get hold of something decent (like an AKC, Shure, or Beyer) even if it means borrowing one from a rich friend!
Ms rare sani One criteria used to measure the signal quality of hi-fi equipment and the like is something called the signal-to-noise (SNR) ratio. This basically gives a measure of the signal itself relative to any extraneous electrically generated background noise produced by the equipment.
Indicators which allow you to see whether a suitable signal level is being provided.
Too low and the sample will have a lot of background noise, too high and the digitiser's input circuitry won’t be able to cope and you'll get a distortion effect known as (which should incidentally be as short as possible), can all help to improve the final quality of the audio signal.
Because it is important to provide the digitiser with a good strength signal, the sampling software will provide graphic Keeping tape heads and records dean, and using good quality connecting leads sampling Trouble shooter With proper attention to input signal levels, and a decent original signal, very little can go wrong with your sample taking. There are however a couple of extra points worth mentioning.
To start with, dirty contacts on the audio lead that links the sound source to the digitiser can often result in poor sample quality. The remedy is to clean the jacks phono- sockets (loose connections cause similar problems and the solution should be pretty obvious).
Audio leads trailing near to a mains power cable are another thing to watch for - it is all too easy for mains-induced hum to be inadvertently picked up.
The moral here? Keep all audio leads away from cables that carry current and don't, incidentally, do Silly things like draping audio leads over your monitor.
Not because it's particularly unsafe but because the high voltages inside the monitor can also result in the audio input cable picking up induced hum.
The sound sampler The analogue-to-digital converter (i This is the heart of the sampler. The chip samples the analogue input at a controlled sample rate and measures the voltage variations at regularly spaced intervals, generating a list of binary numeric values which can be stored and manipulated by the computer.
Sound samplers convert sound to a digitised form which can be stored and manipulated by a computer. Samplers rely on chips called analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs). These specialised chips sample analogue voltages and convert them into binary numbers which the computer can digest. Sound samplers usually operate at rates of up to 40,000 samples per second (sps) although sampling rates of 8.000sps to 15.000sps can be quite adequate. Control of the recording level or gain is very important. Some samplers control gain digitally on screen while others offer only hardware control.
Bling the he was t- equencv .¦'itch, the p sound- back fre- n octave Nyquist's Law Nyqulst’s Law states thal the highest recordable frequency is equal to halt the sampling rate. The range of the human ear goes up to about 20.000Hz so to record sounds at this frequency would require a sampling rate of 40,000sps - this is about the rate at which sound is recorded for compact discs.
I5.000sps is usually quite adequale for home computer use. However, and at this rate the highest recordable frequency would be 7500Hz. Any sound above this frequency would be recorded as noise or ‘'aliasing'.

of Midi-oriented sound sample file formats also available but
these are really only of interest to professional users- By
virtue of the way they are obtained, digitised samples are of
necessity both time quantised and limited to discrete steps in
The world of mathematics has provided us with something called the Nyquist theorem which essentially says that a continuous time waveform, when sampled at a frequency greater than twice the maximum frequency component in its spectrum, can be reconstructed completely from the sampled waveform.
Now in theory you can use these ideas to predict suitable sampling rates when taking Clipping When a signal is provided I that is too loud for the digitiser cir-1 cuitry to cope with, the top parts of | the input signal waveform can be effectively chopped off or clipped.
This produces a distortion which, for obvious reasons, is called clipping!
Chip memory The area of memory I that is accessible by the Amiga's cus-1 tom chip set. Sound samples have to I be held in chip memory in order to be I used.
Jargon buster clipping. For the best results, start with a signal that is a little too loud and experiment by sampling it, and listening to the results.
If on replay you hear any evidence of clipping, then reduce the volume slightly and try again- Repeat the process until you are convinced that you've recorded the strongest non-clipping signal possible. Some digitisers, incidentally, are fitted with volume controls.
Others are not and in these latter cases the signal level will need to be adjusted directly from the audio source.
Collecting sound samples is great fun. It is, however, of little use unless those samples can be saved and re-used and herein lies another part of the sampling story... The digital copy or image of the sound in memory is called the raw data and many sample editing packages offer facilities for writing this information directly to disk.
Raw files are used mainly by programmers - a games coder for instance might use raw sound sample data and embed the required details of playback rates and the like, within the program using the sound.
As a means of creating portable data files, ie sound sample files that can be used with any number of different sound editing programs or tracker programs, raw sample files are less than ideal. This is because a program reading such raw sample data is not going to know how the waveform should be played back or used.
What is needed therefore is a file format that saves not only the waveform data, but some details about how the sample should be played and this is where the IFF 8SVX file format comes to the rescue.
IFF files store their data items in labelled blocks (called chunks). With 8-bit sound samples the chunks, since they represent S- bit Sampled Voice data, are known as 8SVX chunks and these will contains the raw waveform data, details about how the sample should be played, plus perhaps other info as well, A simple 8SVX file might, conceptually look something like this: repeat part waveform. The idea here is that when samples are played as musical instruments, the programs using them can initially play the one-shot part of the waveform, and then loop around the repeat part of the
waveform for as long as the sound needs to be sustained.
Iff Ssvx round Mil ...... 8SVI liDfl jiil hfjJer irfo 80tY wlYltorR d!tl Programs which use sampled sounds as instruments achieve different notes in a particular voice by modifying the rate at which they play back the sound sample.
Samples however always sound best, or at k*ast most natural, when they arc played back at rates near to their original sampling rate and with large alterations in playback rates the quality of the voice can often deteriorate drastically.
MULTIPLE The IFF standard helps programs to avoid these sorts of problems by allowing multiple octave sound data to be stored so that in any given situation a program can chcK)se an octave nearest to the note that it wishes to generate. Three and five octave SSVX file versions are common.
IFF SSVX is fine as an S-bit standard but over the last few years a more sophisticated file standard has been created that will become increasingly important as 16-bit sampling becomes more accessible.
It's called Audio IFF and one of the packages which supports this format is Microdeal's Clarity 16. The AYR format, an in-house standard created by Audio Visual Research, is another 16-bit arrangement that you may also read about.
AVR files consist of a small block of header information followed by the sample waveform data. There are incidentally a 4 Let your ears be judge and jury and you won't go far wrong samples of a particular musical note (if for instance you are sampling a sound with a frequency of 15kHz, this theory suggests that you'd need to collect data at a frequency of at least twice this, ic 30kHz to get a good sample).
In practice things are not that simple because musical instruments produce notes which contain other frequencies, called harmonic overtones, which colour the sounds.
These harmonics may include frequencies which are at a much higher frequency than the main note.
If the Nyquist relationship tells you anything at all it is that a sampling frequency at least twice as fast as the frequency of the highest frequency component present in the original waveform needs to be used.
Since you'll never know the frequency of the harmonics any chance of making sound predictions (apologies for the pun) of suitable sampling rates go out of the window! The solution of course is to forget any "I can calculate the required frequency" ideas and let your ears tell you whether you have a good sample or not.
Samples can incidentally suffer from a waveform distortion known as aliasing when taken at sampling rates of less than the Nyquist predicted frequency and the Amiga hertZ The hertz is the common unit of frequency equivalent to one cycle per second, so 1kHz =1,000 cycles per second.
RAM scanning A facility provided by some sampling software whereby you can hunt around the Amiga's memory and 'play'' whatever's there. Needless to say nobody ever uses these options for stealing other peoples samples!
Tracker programs These are sequencer-type programs that are based on the use of sampled sounds.
OctaMED Pro is a typical example and very good it is too.
Is fitted with an anti-aliasing filler to minimise this effect.
Unfortunately this filter works by cutting the high-frequencies (because they're the ones most affected by aliasing distortion) so samples end up sounding flat (dull).
Basically the sound loses its sparkle because it loses those all-important harmonics mentioned earlier!
Some sampling software can employ a playback technique known as oversampling which allows aliasing distortion to be reduced without cutting the high-frequency waveform components.
There is incidentally another source of distortion-based quality loss that is worth mentioning. Some software allows the IFF SSVX sample data to be compressed to save space.
Fibonacci-delta compression, the technique that is always used, is not really suitable for compressing musical instrument samples - it can, and usually does, introduce distortion that is especially noticeable on samples recorded at low sample rates.
Sometimes you can get away with it but as before the only safe solution is to experiment and let your ear be the judge!
Developing an ear for music, being able to recognise a good sample from a bad one, and so on is something that only comes with practice, At the end of the day there is only one rule to apply to the samples you take - if it sounds good... then it is good. And if you let your ears be your judge and jury in this way you'll find that you won't y f J go far wrong. F m THE MICRO ADVENTURES OF...

Phil Morse looks at the wide variety of models on the market Ail disk drives are the same. A fact which, at first glance, seems to this review rather pointless. But while they all tend to use one of a vc small number of reliable, well tested and trusted actual drive meet nlsms within their cases, the construction quality, software supplied and extra u lures are all up to the particular
Actually, there are a couple of types of drive, although for the Amiga only c kind is really viable unless you require one for specialist use. And this is the i floppy drive format HD stands for high density, which means the disk can he around 800k of information as opposed to roughly half of that using old (now c dated) variants.
As well as HD disks, it is also possible to buy DD (double density) variar These can record roughly double that of HD disks, and use much higher qua magnetic coatings on the disks' surfaces to record accurately such a large amoi of Information.
We have tested one such model, the Power XL drive. Such drives are great Blitzes a piece of dopying stfttoSre Now while people undoubtedly use such software to pirate commercial releases,they also use it to get around commercial blocks in order to back up their expensive software. While understanding th'e latter, to deny that the former goes on fust as much wouj J be stupid.
However, Blitz is dv&ifabie and people aretuying it. So what does it do? Well, by putting the disk to be copied from, write-protected into the Amiga's internal drive, and the disk s to be cppied to in any external drive s (write-enabled) it simply mates a bit-by-bit copy of the entire disk, f It does not do it "intelligentlyit has no way of knowing if a cogy is successful r not, but most Of the time they are.

I could have called them “virT. But then you wouldn I have
known what i meant, would you? However you piuraiise them,
viruses - nasty little computer programs which can do
everything from locking up your machine to flashing ‘amusing"
messages at you to reformatting your hard drive - are highly
Disk drives which contain anti-virus circuitry allow reading and writing to and from Amiga disks as usual, but will block any attempts to write to the boot- block of any disks in either the external drive or the Amiga s own internal one.
As most viruses work by bootblock corruption, this is an effective aid in the fight against them, although it should not be used instead of a proprietary virus killer - such circuitry can’t do anything about already affected disks.
Unfortunately, the so-called link viruses are Immune to this kind of protection as they work in a completely different way Link viruses are generally far more senous than their bootblock contemporaries, doing such desirable things as complete disk wipes (hard as well as soft), so it is doubly essential to make sure that you scan all new disks with that up-to-date virus killer ROUNDUP!
Power PC883 Dual Power Computing This is a novel concept, and one which will appeal to those who want two instead of just one extra dnve. But who wish to keep everything nice and tidy. The Power Dual is two fully-featured Power disk dnves in one neat metal case.
Each drive is in actual fact a completely independent unit, so you can copy from one to the other, the Amiga recognises them both icon-wise as two separate units, and so on.
Switched on via the switch on its rear, the unit is actually powered by its own minitransformer mains power supply. This is to reduce any strain on overworked power supplies. And is only to be welcomed. It’s a common misconception that power supplies last forever... The Dual Drive comes complete with Blitz software. Too (see box), and can - indeed, must - make two copies of anything you're backing up from the Amiga's internal drive in order to make it work.
It's novel and very neat. While it may never be a best seller, there are many circumstance?
Where two disk drives in one neat box could be a perfect solution, and if it such with you, this is a first rate model.
Power XL Power Computing Sharing the same sleek looks as the 880B except for a slightly darker shade of grey used for the front plastic casing of the drive itself, this dnve is different in that it can handle high density disks, known as HD disks for short. As mentioned, these allow you to format the special HD disks to hold a maximum capacity of around 1.6Mb - double that of usual DD disks, and so especially useful for those wishing to cram a large amount of data onto a single disk.
Therefore this drive appeals to those using their Amigas for DTP or animation and graphics work, where the disks can hold more pages, frames or pictures than their lower capacity counterparts.
Visually, the only difference on the disks themselves (discounting the HD logo) is a second hole opposite the write-enable disable slot. This hole is a permanent one. And using it the disk drive senses whether the disk which has just been inserted is HD or
DD. Therefore, the Power XL drive is able to read, write and
format both types of disk - the best of both worlds.
The drive has four rubber feet which hold it very still, and the usual enable disable switch and daisy-chaining socket on the back. So if big files or programs are your thing
- or if you're putting off getting that hard disk yet wish you
could have a second drive stacked with all the things you need
to keep swapping disks for - this could be the one for you.
¦ROUNDUP Power PC88OB Power Computing The Power drive is a long beast, but is nevertheless streamlined and good- looking in' its plastic and metal casing.
It bears a great resemblance to its cousin, the Power XL high density drive, brought about by being sold in the same casing.
The PC880B has an isolating switch which makes it effectively “disappear" when switched off. Allowing compatibility with extra-drive-sensitive software, and also comes with the usual through-port for connecting a second drive to.
Power recommend that you do not connect more than two drives together running off Ihe Amiga's own power supply - although this advice may vary depending upon what machine and so what type of power supply you have, Power’s suggestion is a sensible rule of thumb.
One feature which particularly impressed me was the inclusion of an anti-click device which effectively stops the dnve clicking periodically - the bane of the Amiga's internal drive.
It's a problem caused by the Amiga continually checking to see if a disk has been inserted in the drive, and one which users have previously got around by either putting a “dummy" disk in the dnve (so there is one there and so no need to click) or by using a small PD utility permanently installed and programmed to stop it. Power's solution is both transparent and effective.
What makes Power s drive stand apart from the crowd, however, is its Blitz software, which is included with the drive in the shape of a floppy disk, and an extra switch on the back of the unit. The function switch can select one of three options. The first is Normal. The second is an anti-virus setting, which is discussed in more detail in the separate box.
The final setting, Blitz, is for use in conjunction with the aforementioned software. See the box-out ‘Blitz those disks" for more information on this feature Cumana CAX354 Cumana Ltd Definitely the grandad of the Amiga external floppy drive world, the Cumana has been around for many years Looking rather old fashioned in this day and age - it's slightly bigger and clumsier looking than its competitors, and its noisiness betrays a rather basic design - the Cumana has nevertheless lived a long and popular life which sees no sign of decline.
Maybe people like it because of its reliability Eschewing flashiness and fashion, the Cumana is one of the most trustworthy drives in the business.
It comes m a two-part moulded plastic case, complete with an extra port on the back for daisy-chaining another dnve. It has four small plastic feet, which are not particularly brilliant at holding it still. Indeed, our office Cumana (pictured) has been doctored with six large rubber feet and now looks somewhat like the souped-up Morris Minor of the floppy disk worid! But it's testament to the unit's reliability that no-one can remember how long we've had this particular specimen. Devoid of gadgets and extras, this is the dnve for you if you're after something tried and tested and through
with flying colours.
Roctec RocLite Cordon Harwood A very popular drive with the trendy, streamlined mob. And not too surprising either, as the Roctec s sleek metal case certainly conjures up elegant adjectives such as "diminutive and understated Although its design is compact, it lacks the spilt-coffee-unfnendly top vents of its streamlined contemporary the Zappo drive. On the Zappo model, vents appear to be a design feature designed to keep the drive mechanism cool within such a small case, but the Roctec does not appear to get hot in use without them.
It is equipped with the usual enable disable switch and socket for daisy-chaining other drives to. Although you may have to search for a trendy-looking 23-pin cable to connect them up with or the plug in the back might ruin this vain little number's good looks!
It also has. Rather more usefully, an anti-virus facility along the lines of the power drives (see box for an explanation) which is only to be welcomed and perhaps pushed this model a little ahead of the Zappo in the sleek desirability stakes Zappo RF332C Indi Direct Hob byte This is a highly attractive drive, and for those with fashion-conscious Amiga setups, it could be nght up your street.
Extremely slimline, both in height and length, it comes in as sturdy grey metal casing, which is finished in an attractive speckled pattern, and has the usual 23- pin D-plug for attachment to your Amiga, and a D-socket on the rear for attaching further drrva.'s. Possibly the only worrying tactor about this attractive design is the use of two cooling vents on the top of the unit towards the rear. While no doubt essential for the cool and proper running of the Zappo. These vents nevertheless are prime target tor any stray cups of coffee or small objects in the curious paws of young children...
No doubt the trendy, streamlined design of the drive is the reason these vents are necessary, so if you want small size and looks, just be extra careful with drinks and children.
Finally, the drive has a small on off toggle switch at the back to deactivate it when its use is interfering with software.
Like most of the drives reviewed here, the Zappo has not got a power supply of its own. But if my humble A60Q's power supply can happily feed it. Then I imagine it will be all right on all Amigas.

)*Irlr ShP** *'m ,air ' ne V t0 t ut havin8 worked in the PC fwv retailing business for a while I know a couple of people in the industry and so can usually pick up a lot of gossip about other machines. Specifically, I've been hearing a couple of worrying things about Commodore.
Is it true that they won't be releasing the A1200 CD-ROM drive this side of Christmas? A friend assures me that though Commodore promised it would bt* available, it now won't be appearing until Commodore can get tbr price right.
Impossible upgrade Will there ever he an upgrade kit for the A500 to make it into an A1200? There was the ECS chip set upgrade and Kickstart 2.04 chip to make it into an A500 Plus, so why not another jump up the ladder?
I don't want to get rid of my beloved A500 if I can avoid it, as I have too many peripherals which use the OMA slot. These would be useless on the A1200 unless someone was to produce an adaptor. Any chance of this?
Colin McGrain. Aberdeen I'm afraid there's no chance of an A500 to A1200 conversion kit as it would probably cost more than a new A1200. Your idea for a converter to enable the A1200 to use A500 DMA slot peripherals is an interesting one. Though.
This should be possible, but no third-party manufacturer has as yet announced plans for this sort of add-on, so we 'll just have to wait and see, There must surely be a market for an A1200 DMA slot, as the number of upgrading A500 owners in a similar predicament to yours must be substantial.
Is it also true that virtually none of the games houses will be living up to the promises they made when the CD32 was launched? In other words, I hear that few of Aem will be releasing A 1200-specific games this year, never mind CD32 games.
Now my main point. Why make a promise when you have no chance or no intention of keeping it? All this sort of hype and lying in the computer industry' serves only
• a confuse and annoy the customers, and as someone who's spent
three years dealing with computer buyers I can tell you that
when confused and annoyed by a product
• ry just drop it and run.
If the games industry and Commodore themselves carrv on being overlv optimistic, (bey'll do more damage than if thev had just said "not for a while yet" when asked to name a release date.
Peter Co:i ry. Middlesborough Tm not sure where you're hearing your rumours, but tiny are at least partly true. Most software companies who announced products at the time of the CD32 launch are missing the launch dates liny set themselves and Commodore still haven't confirmed the launch of the CD add-on drive.
Don't despair, though, as software houses continually miss their deadlines and expected release dates, and Commodore are holding back dll other projects fo concentrate on making and telling the A4000, A1200, and CD32 over Christmas¦ The fact that a few games are late shouldn't bt• few alarming.
You are right to be irritated bt over-optimism, and companies have certainly been guilly of Hus in l u' past, but remember that a lot can come down to the expectations of the industry itself, the press, and the public.
If ur all expect and demand that so many games are released on the CD32 before Christmas, Commodore and Ihe games houses will endeawur to give them to US.
If this means they strain the boundaries of what can realistically be expected, are they lying or Idling us what we want and demand fa hear J Cream crackered Amiga Mother acts for the defence: "Well if you won't let your kids play with real disks, what else can they play on the Amiga with?" Good grief' I really do hate cream crackers.
Sfeve Clarke, Kemps ton You have to look on the bright side when this sort of thing happens. I mean, it could have been a chocolate digestive.
Seriously, though, try cleaning the drive thoroughly and see if it isn't still working. Cream crackers are messy, but not particularly metallic, and the drive mechanism may not have been damaged.
There's a good chance the heads have been badly affected, but you can always try before spending money on a replacement drive.
I hate cream crackers. I really do. Apart from the fact that they always fall apart when you try to butter them and they stick to the roof of your mouth, their butter-smeared flakes are a hell of a job to clean off floppy disks I hate four year-old sprogs playing with my disks even more. "OK son, just leave my disks alone or you'll break them. Where’s the rest of your cream cracker, the bit you haven't spread all over my disks?"
The next day I found the soggy cracker when I tried to load a game into my Amiga. Yep, you could say the disk drive was literally cream crackered.
The guilty party was confronted with the evidence. "But son, why did you do it?" I asked. “Well." Came the reply, “it's the same shape and it did fit." Huh! Anything fits if it’s covered in butter. I muttered.
Wrong balance?
I've been reading your magazine for years now, but I'm not sure how much longer I’ll bother. The standard of the magazine hasn't fallen, but the content has.
You used to cover a good mixture of topics every month, including general interest articles and just about every conceivable aspect of the Amiga was covered in some review or other.
These days there are fewer articles and you seem to concentrate on graphics and video to the exclusion of all else.
Please address this imbalance before I am forced to stop buying a magazine 1 have a!wavs loved.
James Pitt, Wellington, New Zealand Your concern has been noted and we acknowledge there have been fewer general interest articles of late, but you may have noticed the balance already changing.
We have continued to offer at least one round-up and one survival guide to an area of Amiga technology every month, and in future we will be putting more emphasis on the "How 2" type of article, such as last month's "How 2 fit an A1200 hard drive”.
General interest features are back on the agenda, as you'll have noticed from our pieces on the Zoom Theatre Company, hack‘ ers, and virtual reality, but you can’t criticise our reviews of graphics and video products as these are by far the biggest part of the new peripherals market.
If Ihe majority of new peripherals were samplers and Other Midi equipment, we'd be revirwing thesi’. And no doubt attracting flak ¦LETTERS Indie sinks on HD Our family bought an A1200 for Christmas last year and we've been reasonably happy with it. The first game we bought. Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, was a brute to play on a single floppy drive machine, and I promised my ten-year- old a revelation when we fitted a hard drive this week.
Revelation right enough - the bloody thing won t run on a 120Mb hard drive. According to the man at US Gold there have been a lot of problems with larger drives, which apparently spin too fast for Indie. He admitted the game hadn't been tested for the A1200 before it was released and it was too late to do anything about it now.
OK. That's fair enough as far as it goes. Vou can't expect total compatibility in the surge for better technology. But I do feel it's grossly unfair that in the ten months I've owned Indie not one magazine, retailer, soft* ware house, or individual has made it known that a £250 hard drive and a C38 game are incompatible.
US Gold admit they've had a num* ber of calls from people like me. So why has this been kept such a big secret? Like your reader Nigel Spence (ESP. June). I shan't be buying any more high-priced games that don't run on the A1200.
Bill Mackintosh. Glasgow The reason we didn't make it known was that we didn't know of the problem ourselves. Our review of Indie was carried out on an A1200 with 60Mb hard drive, so we had no problems with hard drive use and assumed this would be the same no matter what size the drive was.
US Gold should not be making excuses for their game, because the A1200 hard drive interface is the same as the A600's, and this was most certainly available during testing. It was also their responsibility to tell the magazines or. Better still, the public by making known any problems with particular machine configurations.
Front those who don't like Midi stuff. Sorry, but in our reviews section we can only cover Ihe peripherals Ihe market StVS fit to release.
Having said that, we hope you continue lo find enough in Amiga Computing fu carry on reading it.
Warranty woes Having just been reading issue 66 and noticed that ICL have been given the warranty contract for new machines, why can't existing owners have their warranties covered by them as well? Wang are still delaying repairs.
Three weeks ago my A1200 stopped working and was totally dead. On phoning the number on my warranty I was told that Wang would be in touch and fix it in six days. Many phone calls later I'm still waiting, having been told they're waiting for spares.
They said there was a new power pack and they were having difficulties getting one. Why is it I can buy one in the many adverts in your magazine and get it delivered the following day and yet Wang cannot?
I thought Commodore were improving their after sales service, but apparently not. If current Amiga owners cannot get the service thev deserve, how do Commodore really expect to improve their market standing?
A4000 corner?
I've recently bought an A4000 030 and to be frank I'm delighted with it. The extra power of the CPU, the graphics, and the superb Workbench 3.0 just blow my old A5Q0 Plus out of the water.
One thing I have noticed, though, is that the A4000 doesn't get nearly as much coverage as the A1200 and there seem to be far fewer round-ups of products for the big brother machine.
Is there any possibility that you might start a column for the A4000 or at least have a certain number of pages devoted to it every month?
Charles Taunton. Bridlington Yes, there are fraer pages devoted to the A4000 than the A1200 in most magazines, but there is a very good reason for this. There are far fewer A4000-speeific products around, a situation which restricts coverage for the machine, but which is rapidly changing.
As more A4000 peripherals come onto Ihe market. They will be reviewed in this magazine, so keep reading. You should already have noticed the number of AGA software packages tested recently, so there is no shortage on the software front.
As we go to print, a host of A4000 SCSI-1! Cards and other hardware is poised for launch, SO the drought won't last long.
Relegating the A4000 to a column of its amI would probably only serve to marginalise its coverage, so we will continue to look for A4000 products and review them as and when they are released.
1 owned an Amiga 500 tor four years completely trouble free, but my A1200 is under three months old. Have thev tested the so-called new technology or has quality control gone the same way as after sales service?
B HoWdrth, Southport The new technology in the At200 is all silicon. And to be fair to Commodore's chip designers, we've never seen the AGA chip set fail. However, the secondary technology has produced a few villains, chief among which are the TV modulator, the power pack, and the floppy disk drive.
In the main, problems have usually been caused by the fact that cheaper components were used to cut costs, but there were also some early problems of the sort associated with any brand new production unit. There's Got something to say through the pages of AC?

Drop him a line at: Ezra Surfs Postbag, Amiga Computing Adllngton Park, Macclesfield SK1Q 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 ehop.
No excuse for a PSU popping its clogs, and if this is the cause of your machine's malaise. I suggest you phone Commodore UK on 0626 770086 and complain.
Wang have a contract with Commodore which specifies a response time, so it's in Commodore's interest to keep tabs on whether Wang are keeping their side of the bargain.
If you get no joy from Commodore, phone Wang again, and this time make it clear you have a complaint to make. Don 't let them fob you off - make sure you get the name of the fierson in charge of customer services or the equivalent.
Often the problem with British consumers is that they don 't complain properly. If the person at the end of the phone isn't help you. Don't waste time arguing with tk just get their name and demand to speak the boss. Don't be put off with a vagi promise, but insist on the service to wht you are entitled and for which you paid.
Accounts quest I am writing in the hope that you or your readers may be able to assist me. Before a three year stint in New Zealand in 1990,1 purchased the program Personal Accounts Plus by Equinox Business Systems Ltd from a local computer store, but having now returned to the UK I find that I've lost the manual.
I have made enquiries at the store where I bought the program only to find that the company went bust in 1991 and they have no idea where I could obtain a oopy of the manual. Can you help?
C P Brown. Orpington I haven't been able to locate a company still selling the package you mention, but I’m sure one of our readers must have a copy or know someone who does, and they may be willing to part with the manual at a suitable second hand price.
Try our classified ads section, or alternatively watch these pages in case on of our readers can help you Out Road requests After watching the Le Mans 24 hoi race this year I just had to ask you the J following three questions:
1. When Core Design released Jagua XJ220 they stated that they
were doing] a 3D version concentrating on the Ll Mans 24-hour
race. Are they still making] this?
2. Are the Papyrus Design Group sti making a follow-up to the
highly under rated Indianapolis 500? I prefer this to
Microprose's Formula 1 GP, but only just.
3. Is Geoff Crammond going to do a sequel to Formula 1 GP? If so,
I hope it will be harder as the original was too easy.
I would really appreciate answers to the above as I am a huge fan of 3D racing games sims.
Jim Bames. Southampton Your questions were passed to the Gamer crew who, after a short conference. Returned the following answers.
No. No. And yes. In other words. Forget about the 3D Le Mans game and the follow up to the excellent Indie 500. But look out for an improved version of F1GP.
In the meantime. Europress Software’s RAC Rally game is shaping up nicely, though it remains to be seen how well they manage the Amiga version.

exciting section, where of the awards were deaded by bwy tight
margin The closeness of T* ‘ardware votes shows just how mA
'he market has been served this fm by manufacturers, with
dozens of ty add-ons competing for our Who has won and who has
lost in the Amiga Computing reader awards 1993?
Will it be tears of joy, or fake congratulatory smiles for our nominees?
A couple of months ago, we asked you to vote for the best hardware and software of 1993, and since then your votes have been flooding the AC offices as thousands of ordinary readers take the opportunity to tell the manufacturers what they think.
The results are a reflection not only of our readers’ preferences but of the relative strengths of the packages in the market. For example, the OpalVision card came out top of the video peripherals despite the fact that the video addon module has still not been released.
So many OpalVision users are out there that the card won by a streak, demonstrating that if Centaur could pull their fingers out with the upgrade modules, they still have a sizeable market.
Other results were a little more predictable, but all have one thing in common: They are the preferences and opinions of the voting (and paying) public and as such carry a lot more weight than press speculation.
Games This was a tough one. Not only because there have been so many excellent games this year, but because people usually vote for their own particular favourite.
Best arcade platform Flashback, Delphine Software Best sports sim Fl Grand Prix, Microprose Best strategy war game Civilization, Microprose Best adventure Monkey Island 2, US Gold Best flight sim Gunship 2000, Microprose Well, that’s that for another year You’ve voted with your wallets and your pens, and spoken as a group of readers of the only Amiga magazine to cater directly for the enthusiast. The responses given through your votes represent a group of dedicated Amiga users with a broad range of equipment, from RAM expansions to the most expensive peripherals around, and if you aren't a
suitable peer group for judging Amiga products, then noone else can be.
Best word processor Wordworth 2, Digita International Best office package Maxiplan 4, The Disc Company Software A quietish year for productivity software has seen the accolades go to mostly older established products, but the difference in voting behaviour between hardware and software is striking nonetheless Not one of the final votes was close, and all winners cantered home at least a couple of lengths ahead.

Mac transfer I am currently looking for a program like CrossDos that will allow me to transfer normal text between Amiga and Macintosh disks. It is very important that I obtain such a program for my iter so I can continue work at and at home.
* *rre are any programs that are on FD circuit, shareware, or
even fetal, can you please give me fc? Is it possible to
configure ; and, if so, how?
I«*m two versions of CrossDos, the in the Workbench disks and one away on a magazine CoverDisk.
D ’ wtup consists of an Amiga 1200 with hard drive.
Ryan Morse, Milton Key rMac drives work m a very different way to Amiga drives, so the only | way you can make your Amiga read ¦r toppics is cither to buy an emulator such P Implant or the commercial program lm-2-Pos, which enables the connection of pi external Macintosh floppy.
* I However, a Mac floppy drive will cost you ¦r £100, so why not
just use CrossDos? The nlosh can read PC disks, as can the
Pbg*’50sair a M °f mmy nnu cou pm use 720k MS-DOS disks as
If the Mac in question uses the System 6 Renting system, it should have a utility Apple Pile Exchange, which is used to M and format PC disks or copy files to and pw* them.
Ng lh nd ck If the Mac has System 7, you can format PC disks from the desktop, but make Sure yOU m this on (he Mac as System 7 has a wmticular way of formatting the disks and pC sometimes refuse to recognise a PC disk Jfcm another machine.
Bad sums FI have recently returned to the wonderful world of the Amiga home computer by purchasing kn A1200 complete with 85Mb hard drive.
Up until yesterday things were going gfreat but now I have a problem.
My hard disk is divided into two parti- [ pons, one which houses Workbench, called System3.0, the other called Work wtuch stores everything else. Whenever I pk on the Work icon it opens OK, but jabo displays the following message: Htt HAS A CHECKSUM HOI OH DISK BLOCK 90751 After cancelling the message the machine items to perform the same as it did before | fcc message started to appear. Please can [you tell me what the error means and how to fix it?
Stephen Reid, Ellon rA checksum is a number which is appended to a block of data on disk, and is the result of a standard calculation carried out on the data held in the Hock. This sum is used as a reference to check fgeddit?) The data and make sure it isn't corrupt. The error message you have been E From viruses to thunderstorms, we've got answers to all your problems, natural or otherwise, from our team of experts ACAS receiving merely tells you Hut a minor fault has developed with the data on one small part of your hard drive. Use Quarterback Tools from the December issue CoverDisk and
choose the repair damaged volume option.
Which is showing no symptoms of sickness. I mean, uvuld you lake your car's engine fo bits just to try out a new socket set?
Plates of jelly I recently had a problem with Iw mv A500's floppy drive which w the local computer shop diagnosed as (probably) a faulty chip called CIA. They subsequently offered to fix the fault for £47. This is too much for my pocket, so I decided to buy the CIA chip Quarterback wilt scan the drive until it finds the bad checksum, then attempt h) recalculate it. If this is not possible, the data block may be deleted, which will mean deleting the file which ioa$ held there. C'est la vie.
Oh, and remember that you should neivr, eivr use a disk repair program on a hard drive Met nightmare I am looking for a solution to a problem I have in transferring files between an A1200 and a 486 PC. So far I have been using Windows Terminal and an old Amiga comms package called Access.
I transfer large files (sometimes up to 30Mb) and although the method works it is almost non-viable due to the slow transfer speeds I can use. I use 19.200 baud and I’m sure I can transfer at 115.200 using Laplink 3 or 4 on the PC and a similar program on the Amiga.
The problem wouldn't be so bad if I could transfer the file in one go, but an unfortunate quirk in Access means it crashes if you select a directory that has a file larger than 999k within it, so I have to break the file down using Splitz and transfer it as a series of 1Mb chunks. This is a nightmare.
Please can you advise me on the package or combination of packages I am looking for, or suggest a better way of going about things?
Stephen Davies. Wolverhampton The first thing you should do is dump the comms package you are using and either lay your hands on a newer version or get hold of one of the other packages such as JRComm or Ncomm.
You should be able to transfer files of any size at almost 60 kilobaud If you have a modem with good error checking, and should not have to break files down.
If this isn’t good enough, try a networking solution. A new PCMCIA Ethernet card has been launched by Californian-based Interworks. Dubbed the 1-Card, you should be able to use this to connect the Amiga to the PC using a suitable PC Ethernet card and some decent software.
Transfer rates lor Ethernet running through the PCMCIA slot won t be much above 300k per second at best, but this is a hell of a lot better than using a modem, if more expensive.
You can phone or fax Interworks on (0101) 909 699-8120 for more information, or keep an eye on this magazine for a forthcoming review.
Described by the engineer and fit it myself.
However, having opened the Amiga for the first time 1 was seized by an attack of nerves. For all I knew it might as well be full of plates of jelly and ice cream. Do you have any advice on what I might do to locate the correct chip and set things right?
I Allen, Alsager rlt founds as if you are unsure eivn winch chip you are replacing, and unless you can be sure it's best lo leaiv it to the engineer you first spoke to.
If you insist on doing this yourself, confirm with the shop that you have the correct CIA chip tthere are two of them. ClA-A and CIA-B). And use the old screwdriver method.
This involves carefully leirring the chip out at both ends using a small flat-bladed screwdriver and is easy enough, if a little daunting when first tried. Carefully insert your new chip and put the Amiga back together again, then cross your fingers and turn it on.
You can't damage anything othrr than the CIA chip itself if you inserted the wrong chip, but as you' iv already paid for this it might be wise to have the engineer finish the job for you.
Amos answers Ijsv 1 have a few questions on Easy lw Amos and the difference ™ between it and the rest of the range. I hope you'll bear with me.
Does the Easy Amos package contain both disks and a manual? If 1 buy the Easy Amos package would I still have to buy a compiler or would it be immediately readv to run?
Is there any difference between Easy Amos and the Amos Professional package, or once 1 understand Easy Amos will I be able to understand or graduate smoothly to Amos Pro?
I hope these questions are not considered a menace, but as an Amiga owner of only two months I am desperate to be weaned off games. Finally, if I buy Easy Amos, will I really need to buy Mastering Amiga Amos or could that be done in the distant future once I have a working knowledge?
Friend in need, London rEasy Amos is a perfect way to start on the Amos trail, and has ample manuals with on-line tutorial help lo gently ease new users into programming with the language. You would still have to buy a compiler to create stand alone programs, but Amos also has a utility called Ramos which will enable programs to be run from their own disks.
This isn't as fast and smooth as compiling a program, but Ramos at least makes it possible for users to release their stuff through the public domain. There are a lot of differences betuven Easy Amos and Amos Pro, but these are mostly lo do with the latter's extra commands and facilities, You should find no difficulties in moving from Easv Amos to Amos Pro once you've mastered the basics. If anything, this is the ?
Recommended route for those who wish to take it slow and easy.

Choices, choices For Christmas my parents plan Iw on getting me a new computer w to aid me in my work. I was thinking of an A1200 with 85Mb hard drive, but my parents think I’d be better off with a PC 486sx because of its high quality of business software.
My current Amiga software includes PageStream 2, Wordworth 2, and Protext
5. 5 and I use my A500 for business and leisure. 1 would be
grateful if you could advise me on which machine to buy.
After reading numerous comms sections I would like to buy a modem to communicate with other modem users and bulletin boards. I was thinking of buying a Supra Fax modem (2,400bps) or a Supra 14,400 baud model. I plan on using the modem about twice a week to download about four utilities or less each time and upload a few.
Could you recommend one of these two or even suggest another modem?
Also, does Ncomm have an archiving and de-archiving utility? Thanks for answering my questions.
A Chang, Wimbledon rThe choice of which machine lo buy is one you'll hair to make after long hard consideration, but the A1200is a better bet on several counts. First of all, the software is much cheaper, particularly office software, and as long as you don't plan to run a large company’s accounts and stock control cm the machine, the Amiga is fine for business.
Tr Modems'should be less of a problem if you read our survival guide and round-up on this subject a few months ago. But you still seem a little confused. The Supra Fax modem is available in two models, the more expensive of which is a v32 bis unit capable of 14,400 baud.
This is the slowest modem we can Cracking the colour code As a new Amiga owner, I was delighted when I first L™ booled ProPage 4 and created my first full colour layout.
especially as I knew I could make some money this way.
A friend of mine has a small restaurant and asked me to design and pnnt some colour leaflets about his special Chnstmas dinner menu I said OK. Went to work, and had him approve the designs on my monitor screen before printing them at a local bureau.
However, when the 500 leaflets were delivered a few days later the colours were all wrong, particularly anything with red in it. I checked the PostScnpt output specs, confirmed that I’d chosen the right colours, and everything seemed fine, so why the big difference?
I hope you can sort this out. As I hope to develop it into a regular sideline.
R Savage, Edinburgh JK!
Fm hV ACAS You got problems too? Then drop a line to Amiga Computing Advice Service, Europa House, Adlington Park, Macclesfield SK10 4NP and we’ll move heaven and earth to help in these columns. But sorry; we cannot reply personally, so save those SAEs.
But I gain no extra actual screen space doing this. I also use a PC from time to time and this seems to be able to use the whole screen.
Recommend for regular comms work as a cheaper and slower modem umld make a big difference to your phone bills.
As for Ncomm, this is a splendid comms package, and you should be able lo get your hands on the latest version of the Lha archiver when you fust log on to a BBS. Friendly front-ends for complex archivers do exist, Ljtarca being one example that springs to mind, so you should have no excuses for not using one.
Surely the Amiga isn't inferior?
Craiy Thompson, Orpington rYou should have mentioned the AOC's model number, as il is possible you have a standard 5 VGA monitor and are mistakenly referring to il as a multisync.
The standard AOC 14in model is happy with both double PAL and productivity mode, but these are often just approximately close to the monitor's normal operating mode rather than bang on.
Small screen I own an A1200 and an AOC multisync monitor. Usually, I use the double PAL hi-res no flicker screen or productivity mode, but I have been unable to find any way to use the whole of the screen.
1 know how to use overscan prefs, but even with these at their maximum I am still left with about two inches of space on the left and one inch on the right. Is there any way to utilise this extra space?
Obviously I am aware that I can alter the horizontal picture size of the monitor, You will always suffer from a certain amount of edging on a monitor screen, but two inches sounds a little over the top, inviting the conclusion that the Amiga's signal isn't quite to the monitor's liking.
Try using the VGA-only monitor driver, but if you get no joy out of this then there’s little you can do except start saving for a true multisync or swap your AOC for a
R Colours shown as points of light on a glass screen are.
Unfortunately, very different from those same colours when sitting on a piece of duller paper reflecting the surrounding light.
The difference is one you can realty only leam by experience, and it is only with a great deal of practice that the DTP professional picks up expertise in this sort of area.
There are, however, some things you can do to make things a little easier to start with, the most obvious of which is the Pantone colour system.
This has been specially designed for spot colour jobs and gives you the opportunity to tell the print bureau exactly which shade of ink you want by selecting it from a colour chart.
ProPage 4 supports Pantone colours, so you should use these if you have a specific needs fora particular shade of red.

* Stoke on Trent and we've devi oped a simple heat monitoring
syst« which presently runs on a dapped* old Amstrad PC.
Briefly, the system comprises of| dozen heat SertSOrs hooked up to an II serial port card which feeds constant da to a program we had written for us i couple of years ago.
This keeps track of the heat chanj within our kilns and reports on a var of areas such as average temperatui latent heat build up, and so on. I nov discover that the program is a simple lit1 thing which I can recreate on my Amij 1500 and would like some advice on best way to go about this.
Will I need to use machine code, ar will the Amiga be able to use the PC!
George Foley, Stoke on Tre rThe IEEE card you mention, if J uses the ISA PC bin, should m perfectly in your Al500's PC slo and you should be able to unite a routine in I to address the ports so long as you have th relevant information from the card'i manufacturers.
If the heat monitoring program is as simf as you say, you should be all systems go,.
Remember to thoroughly lesl the program before switching over to the new system.
The art of programming is 99 per ce perspiration, and complete bug-testing is i must when the program is going to carry ou such a vital job.
Tardy drive FI have an A3000 fitted with an old Maxtor 105Mb drive I got second hand, and for most of the time the drive works well. However, on a cold boot the machine seems to wake up before the drive, and I have to warm re-boot again to get the hard drive to boot.
Is there a problem with the drive or the A3000 SCSI interface? I have never before seen a hard drive do this and I live in fear that it will one day go pop and take my work with it.
Once booted, the drive is fine, and I've never had error reports, but could there be a disaster waiting around the corner for me?
Lee Billings, Braintree rYour hard drive obviously has a few problems waking up in the morning, but there seems to be little lo worn) about. If a warm re-boot is fine and you've had no errors or lost data, it could just be that this old drive takes a second or so longer to unpark the heads, power up to speed, and report itself ready for duty than the A3000 can wait.
For safety’s sake, make regular backups of essential data and keep and eye open for the first hint of problems.

Pen Pal - your first step on the SoftWood Ituldcr of Amiga pal' pen pen really aren't going to know what you're looking for in a graphics package.
So it's really not so much a question of: Are you going to buy Deluxe Paint or another program? It's: What program are you going to buy as well as Deluxe Paint?
Choice as to which you should go for.
Having said that, apart from TVPaint and OpalPaint most of the free graphics programs which come with hardware are pretty slim on quality.
With the new AGA Amigas like the 12011 and 4000 came a new graphics power in the form of the two new graphics modes, Register mode and Ham8, which give you 256 or 262,000 colours to play with. I defy anyone to tell the difference between a full 24-bit picture and Ham8 at a moderate distance.
So the time has come for a long hard look at graphics on the Amiga, and in particular all the bitmapped painting packages you can buy.
Bitmapped graphics are fundamental to the way a computer screen works. Each coloured dot on the screen is defined by a series of "bits", or digital locations inside the Amiga's memory. The bits form a "map" or pattern across the screen, telling the computer where each dot is and what colour it should be.
In order to create graphics on your Amiga you need to buy a graphics package.
If you're lucky then one came with the computer when you bought it, but if not then I'm afraid you've got to put your hand in your pocket again.
And incidentally, don't automatically pass up any "old" or second-hand graphics software you see around, as it might be OK, and may save you hundreds of pounds in graphics tools. For an idea of what second-hand bargains you can expect look at our "Bargain Basement".
If you own an Amiga you’ll be interested in graphics is some shape or form. It's inescapable, as you look at the many beautiful images on your screen and on the pages of your favourite Amiga magazine, you can't help but enjoy good quality high resolution graphics.
You may be content with looking at those which have been created by other people, but sooner or later with all that graphics power in your grasp you'll get the bug and want to do a little bit of your own graphics magic.
The Amiga has always been particularly well served as far as graphics packages am concerned, but although it’s always had real state-of-the-art graphics programs for you to run, it's only been in the last two years that graphics on the Amiga have really come of age.
True Colour or 24-bit cards are really in full swing now, and what with the OpalVision, Harlequin, Picasso, Retina and GYP'S 1V24 and EGS Spectrum cards all coming with their own graphics GRAPHICS available on its own at the moment, being a key part of some of the serious bundles this Christmas, the program is well worth getting hold of by any means you can, as especially in AGA is it easily a match for low-end 24-bit programs and enhanced HAM mode devices like those in our bargain bin.
The program is long overdue for major revision, especially with the likes of Brilliance taking up any slack between standard paint programs and the 24-bit crew, but it still manages to keep its head above water.
All the most recent versions of Deluxe Paint handle animation as well as stills.
The interfaces are very simple, and to step between frames you use the 1 and 2 keys on the top row of the keyboard.
This means you can draw with your right hand on the mouse and flip the pages back and forth with your left. You can even flip screens between the point you click the start point of a line or shape and when you click the end point.
For even more precise alignment the program also includes a lightbox facility, enabling you to see the previous frames in a sequence, making it simpler to match what you drew before with subsequent frames.
Deluxe Paint 4.1 4 AGA Electronic Arts Hlo price This is the great granddaddy of them all.
The thing about Deluxe Paint is that it was written early enough in the life of the Amiga to become the standard by which the programs which came after it, ie, all of them, were measured.
This shows itself in that in any graphics program you can mention, the same keyboard short-cuts as Deluxe Paint apply, and features (even button icon designs) have been borrowed from Dpaint's system to make newer programs look familiar. This means that once you've mastered Deluxe Paint you will be at home with almost any graphics program on the Amiga. Although not really Phil South looks at all the best painting and art programs for the Amiga, and some of the tools which drive them Until you've tried Deluxe Paint you Brilliance Digital £199 A new contender for the Deluxe standard, and A very
good one too, Brilliance. The forerunner of this program was DCTV Paint, also by Creations, as part of the DCTV device. Th new program bears only a passin resemblance to its forebear. Brilliance is a almost professional quality paint an animation program with the ability I animate and paint in up to 256 coloui BG * rrg mode in fact), but also with a B-- i HAM version of the program ¦fed TrueBrilliance you can also edit and Db* True Colour 24-bit images.

Assini ice is.
Int andl ility U colour r 0 is a program best used on an AGA K rune. The price is justified by the ' and the speed with which they It's a good program, but unlike so ¦¦sv others it's fast too.
Can do pretty much all the things jfc can do with Deluxe Paint and even of the things you can do in Paint and ImageFX. The quality of end result is better than what you see b your screen in 24-bit mode, as the program works in 24-bit under the hood, what you see is only the best ibon of the real image that you can on your particular system.
The animation settings are very sticated having more in common a high end 24-bit program or even a tracing suite like Imagine or ave. You can tween characteristics time and make some very special There is a morphing feature but I more like the Deluxe Paint version of g than a replacement for the more ional Morph Plus orCinemorph.
This is certainly a very sharp contender the best graphics program of this year, ially as OpalPaint (the only other am 1 really like a lot) was actually year's big hit.
2. 0 Silica Shop £499 Ithough comparatively new to the iga scene,
the OpalVision board has a nice little niche for itself. It's
a great I M-bit card, and although there are a lot of j
promises of Video Modules (real soon f!) This is not the
card's strength. It has of the easiest to use 24-bit paint
programs on the Amiga, and now discounted [IT* almost as
cheap as the old DCTV unit.
The 24-bit quality on the screen is very
• nooth and clean, and like most programs which come with some
kind of display enhancer, the new display makes the program
look good. But OpalPaint is a very' iseful and clever program.
It’s been through more revisions than a best man's speech, and
it's possibly the most finely tuned program of its type as a
consequence of that.
Sure some people will still complain it doesn't do this, that or the other, it is still a very potent force in the 24-bit paint market. Updates to all facets of the program and the hardware are available on-line on an almost weekly basis.
GRAPHICS The program can be a little slow if you don't have any kind of acceleration. This is particularly noticeable on the spray can function and anything else where the screen needs to be redrawn. 2Mb of chip RAM is almost essential once you start getting into professional style work.
The screen sizes you can work at will be severely restricted if you don't power up your machine with a faster CPU and more brain in your Chip memory. It's a bit like salmon fishing through a keyhole.
Although not so good for creating game graphics like Deluxe Paint does, it's the bee's knees for True Colour graphics creation or for video work. It has the added bonus of being able to save in jpeg format to save space on your drives, but of course this is not to be recommended for high quality images.
And of course you'll have to wait a while before you can use the OpalVision frame grabber, but that's just a minor detail. I don't care when the modules come along. If they do it'll be a bonus, but I'm not holding my breath.
TVPaint Tecsoft • £600 TV Paint has been the graphics engine of choice on a number of 24-bit cards on the Amiga. First it was the Harlequin, then Avideo, and then it popped up on a few others. This program runs on two screens, one for the Amiga, for menus and the like, and one for the display card on which the real time 24-bit graphics happen.
The program is getting on a bit now, and although the quality is very good it is very expensive, putting it out of the running as far as most people are concerned.
It is, however, simply the best than you can get for a variety of reasons.
Unfortunately none of these have a bearing on the price. Version 2 has a lot of new bits added to prevent the age of the program showing in a lack of modern features. So now it has perspective, for example, just like all the other programs.
The menus are easy to navigate and the quality of the output is second to none.
Hardware wars Tablets Apart from the mouse, what other graphics input options do you have? Serious options like TV Paint have drivers for Wacom graphics tablets, that much we knew about, but also you can get tablet drivers for OpalVision too.
This is handy for artists who have a bit of trouble converting the moves they would make on a page into mouse moves on an upright monitor screen. For the tight of pocket, Deluxe Paint v4.6 also supports pressure-sensitive stylus and tablet input, Scanners Where scanners really start to kick ass is when you get over the £500 mark - then you start to see some really professional items, and not just the hand scanners but the flatbed ones too. These are sort of hybrid computerised photocopiers really, with no paper trays to change and no toner cartridges to refill.
The PowerColour Scanner (Power Computing £239) supports 4.096 colours and scans at resolutions of 50 to 400 dpi. There are versions available for the A500 and the A2000 with the A2000 version having its own little Zorro-shaped adaptor board.
The Powerscan vG.O software enables you to digitise full 12-bil images, which are stored in 12-bit internally so no quality is lost when displaying as HAM, The software supports both Workbench 2 and ECS screen modes.
By way of opposition, there’s also the Migraph Colourburst at £399 and the AlfaData AlfaColour at £299. Many other black-and-white hand scanners are available for upwards of £99. Obviously you then have to colour the images in. But that's half the fun isn't it. Join-the-dots fans?
Then there's the Epson GT-6500 (£799 plus £110 for driver software by ASDG) which scans in 24-bit pictures in resolutions as high as 1,200dpi (with special software interpolation).
For colour DTP there's no short cut to this kind of quality. OK so you could get yourself a good 24-bit video digitiser, but the results will always be fuzzier and in almost every way inferior to a flatbed scanner.
Digitisers The Vlab YC is the best I've used (MacroSystem £299). It's a half height Zorro card and as usual with Zorro cards it fits into any slot you've got spare. The card grabs a full frame of colour video when the grab button is pressed on the screen using the mouse, and this works best when the video is in motion.
Once the frame has been grabbed, the YUV image can be saved, or the frame can be previewed in HAM colour, or 16-colour greyscale, or you can send the image directly to a Harlequin card for the best quality of image.
The DigiView unit supplied with the MediaStation package is the oldest and most used digitiser on the Amiga, as it was the first out and was in fact the only one on the market for quite some while.
You use it with a black-and-white video camera mounted on a tripod, and hold coloured filters over the lens to scan manually for the RGB components of a colour picture. Although not really holding its own among all the new units, it’s still a bargain, especially second-hand.
New units from Rombo look to be about to change all this, the Vidi (12) and VIDI (24) RT (Rombo £199 and £299). Rombo have been in the digitising game a long time, since before the Amiga was a project box called Lorraine.
The VID112 unit is based on the old basic mono VIDI Amiga, although now the unit also has the RGB Colour splitter built in to it rather than being separate.
The new VIDI 24 is full 24-bit grab and save, with both these new units doing the job in real time on moving video the same way as the Vlab. The main difference is that the VIDIs will work on any Amiga with a parallel port, whereas the Vlab needs a Zorro slot.
OpalVision looks flickery and imprecise by comparison. This is the professional end of the game and you don't really want to know about it unless someone else is paying.
Image FX
1. 5 CVP • £199 Although primarily a treatment engine for graphic
effects on already existing images, you can edit quite
extensively with ImageFX. Although this is primarily a
competitor of Art Department Pro v2, it can in fact act more
like a paint program if need be, although for the creation of
graphics you might want to look elsewhere.
It is a very powerful 24-hit file manipulator, and if you want to have an Amiga version of Adobe's Photoshop, ImageFX is the package that comes closest to that. Not Bargain basement HAM-E (Black Bell Systems) A forerunner of the AGA graphics modes, providing 256 colour and 262,000 colour Ham-E modes. A built-in graphics editor never got past the beta stage and was anyway surpassed by Image Master, which eventually became a separate release.
Other programs which supported the unit came and went, like Spectracolour HAM-E and HAM-E workshop. These are nice units if you can find them, if a little tricky to get set up.
DCTV (Digital Creations) Before Brilliance came along, there was DCTV Paint. The DCTV was a combined painting and digitising unit which boasted real 24-bit. Which of course it wasn't, realty, it just looked like it. A bit like AGA I guess. The unit had three plugs on the back, one which plugged into the RGB socket on the Amiga and had a pass through directly to an Amiga monitor. The output from the DCTV was sent to a composite TV monitor (or the video in socket of a domestic video recorder).
Only can vou manipulate images but you can convert them to BMP, DPII PC, Impulse RGB, GIF. ]PEC, PCX, PPM, PMG, Rendition, Targa, DCTV and 11AM- E. The animation side also converts between ANIM and PC formats FLI and FLC. The program also supports a number of input devices like scanners directly from the user interface.
The program also does morphing via Cinemorph and a number of other mind-boggling effects. ImageFX is not to be seen as a replacement for any of the programs on offer here, but could be seen like Deluxe Paint as a standard tool in the arsenal.
Personal Paint Cloanto • £59.99 Although UK distributor Micro-Pace recently vanished, this excellent program is still worth a look if you can get hold of a copy. Although strictly limited to 256 colours on an AGA machine, it shouldn't be written off completely as 256 colours is actually quite a lot!
PC paint programs have got by on this much colour for a long time, and the material you can produce is very colourful, and very precise, lacking HAM or Ham8's capacity for fringing or bleeding.
However this is all the program does, so if you want something a little bit more flexible, then something like Deluxe Paint or Brilliance might be more appropriate, depending on your budget. This program is also available in a reduced version with the new Picasso display card.
MediaStation lUewTek £139.95 The graphics engine of this DigiView based graphics presentation pack is DigiPaint 3. An old program now, it still has something to offer. It's HAM only, coming from a time when there weren't actually that many HAM paint programs.
All its work internally is done in 24-bit, and so the results are very smooth. It's particularly good at treating digitised pictures, which is not surprising as DigiView, also by NewTek, is also supplied with the package.

AGA Advanced Graphics Architecture. A new graphics standard on the Amiga 1200 and 4000 allowing 256 colours on-screen in standard modes and 262,000 in Ham8 mode.
Anim A compressed animation format, that stores the differences between frames rather than the whole pictures.
Anti-aliasing Smoothing method used in computers to blur the transition between sharp edges and background colours by using intermediate colours.
Chip RAM The amount of memory available to the custom chips, usually the first I lMb (or in some cases 2Mb) of memory. 2Mb is needed for some 24-bit graphics operations, and this can be added to Amiga which don’t already possess it.

database program. And even fewer who wouldn't know a word processor or spreadsheet program when they saw one.
Most would doubtless also recognise a database but the evidence suggests that, as far as database program use is concerned, a lot of people are far from clear about the basic concepts, the benefits and advantages of the various types of database programs, and in fact about their own data-oriented needs!
Some users spend a fortune on a heavyweight package only to find that years aftenvards they still really only needed 2 per cent of the facilities that had been provided. The chances are that a cheaper program could easily have the same job.
Others confuse database program power with the need for an application to have large amounts of disk storage space available. They waste money on an expensive package when they should really have got a simpler program and added a hard disk.
People buy "relational" database programs because they are "better" but then fail to use them properly. Users often, for example, set up record structures which prove difficult to modify at a later date (thus defeating one of the main purposes of the relational database ideology).
In short, database program use is not well understood, and although in these pages there is not space to deal properly with the underlying technical issues, you will find some help along with details of the Amiga database programs which are currently available.
The main advantages of a single integrated DataBase Management System (DBMS) relative to a collection of individAmlBi ring ual flat file-based applications programs are easy to state. They should let users isolate their data, enable them to remove unnecessary' data item duplication, and in general offer a level of data independence sufficient to allow stored data to be used in a variety' of different ways. Having said that, a lot of so-called databases are nothing more than conventional record storage retrieval systems that let you, the user, set up the required record format.
Because a database will consist of one or more files, all appropriate record definitions need to be created before any information can be stored. How this is done will depend both on the database Paul Overaa on why so many of us fall wide of the mark when it comes to understanding and using those most useful of application programs, database package being used and on the application it is being used for. You might for instance decide you need a client file that contains client surname, first names, address, data of birth and telephone number details and most programs will allow such record
fields to be not only created and named but classified as text, numbers, dates and so on. They'll use these characteristics to provide limited verification during dati entry. If for example you type text into i field which has been defined to hold numerical values, any self-respecting database program should give a suitable Product listings AmiBase v4 Supplier: One Vision Price: £15 Details: Useful, good looking, flat file database program with VCR controls. New version offers record filtering, improved (background) printing and many other facilities.
BuddBase Supplier: Your Choice Price: £1.30 Details: Plat file freeware database program (Disk BU056).
DataRetrieve (Abacus) Supplier: Abacus Price: S79.95 + S13 UK shipping charge Details: This is a reliable product that is suitable for a great many types of applications. It has good documentation. On-line help, indexing and macro facilities plus extras like database password protection. The program can work with up to eight database files at the same time and it has bnlliant search facilities. The screen templates. Called masks, which are used to input data are easily created and versatile report production facilities are provided, Unfortunately there isn’t a UK distributor but it can be
ordered directly from Abacus.
DataRetrieve Professional (Abacus) Supplier: Abacus Price: S295 + S13 UK shipping charge Details: For serious Amiga users wanting a powerful system with relational facilities DataRetrieve Professional is. To my mind, the package of choice. It offers relational file links and the input mask arrangements allow you to set up any number of independent views of your database files using fields from any file.
There are similarly flexible mask-based output view facilities. Although there isn't the space to go into details, :view flexibility" is. To some extent, what the relational approach is all about.
The program is a true heavyweight with superb indexing search and reporting facilities and many extras including its own Basic-style programming language called Profil. If you are after an Amiga database package with power this offering really does deserve to go on your shortlist! Again, there isn't a UK distributor but it can be ordered directly from Abacus.
FlexiBase Supplier: Your Choice Price: £1.30 Details: Freeware flat file database program (Disk BU052).
Gold Disk Office (Gold Disk) Supplier: Silica Systems Price: £49.95 Details: This integrated package includes word processor. Spreadsheet, DTP and business graphics facilities, it also offers a simple, but perfectly usable, fiat-file database program. Files can contain up to 32,767 records, 256 fields per record and 256 characters per field.
Unlimited numbers of user-defined indexes can be set up and there are easy to use form and report generator options available. Very useful providing your applications are straightforward.
Laming or error message- As well as cre- record definitions it is also usually sary to create some kind of screen- data input form, ie set up the screen arrangements which you will use when itting data, Since there's not a lot of in storing data if you can't get at it, programs will also provide inte- soarching and reporting facilities uch allow vou search for records based particular criteria and create and print hard copy reports.
Words of warning There is a certain amount of poetic licence as far as the word ’database" is concerned and many programs described as databases push this to the extreme.
There is an Astronomy database program called Distant Suns, a genealogy database called Norgen, and even Digita International’s Mailshot Plus program sometimes gets desenbed as an Address' database program.
None of these programs, nor many others that sometimes acquire a database label, are database programs in the true sense.

And on the extent to which data items present in the records of one file can be combined or linked with the data held in another database file.
The most sophisticated inter-file links tend to be those found with programs known as Relational DataBase Management Systems (RDBMS) but unfortunately it is these type of programs that are normally the most expensive and the most difficult to use properly.
Before implementing a multiple file relational database application it is best to look at the logical structure of the data that is being stored, carry out a process Programs vary enormously in respect of the facilities they offer. Some provide only the most elementary file definition and data input facilities, while the heavyweight offerings on the other hand really do provide the high level of sophistication and flexibility suitable for the needs of an advanced user.
These offerings, incidentally, will come with their own Basic-like Database Management Languages allowing experienced users to create highly customised database interrogation and reporting rou* tines.
There are similar variations in the searching and reporting facilities on offer known as Normalisation, and then use the resulting record structure as a blueprint or model for your real data files.
Most users who buy RDBMS software do not do this, and the result is that many never see the real benefits that relational systems can provide.
A Database program may provide all manner of other facilities such as Arexx control and Import Export options that let the program read data from, or write data to, other Amiga programs and files.
Many Amiga databases allow users to store references to IFF pictures, 8SVX sound samples and so on and this enables not only specialised Amiga graphics and sound databases to be created but allows such material to be used as part of a conventional text-based information system.
The potential uses are limited only by your imagination, and the amount of disk space you have available.
Extensive graphics or sound-oriented database applications will, needless to say, require a lot of disk space and in these (and a few other instances) a hard disk becomes essential. Many database programs can however be set up to run on quite modest Amiga systems (eg single drive 512k machines) although obviously much depends on the type of application you are trying to set up, Home Business Pack Supplier: Anglia PD Price: £4.20 for a three-disk pack. Printed manual available at £2.99 Details: This contains the bBase flat file database program along with a text editor, spelling checker,
spreadsheet. Accounts program and other software. Good value for money.
)isk Kdata (Kuma Software and HiSoft) Supplier: HiSoft Price: £39.95 Details: K-Data is part of the HiSoft K-Pack spreadsheet and flat file database offering. It provides similar record definition and search sort report facilities to those found in alternative offenngs in the same price range.
Unfortunately the package shows its age in that it is unable to handle references to graphics or sound - SO it is only going to be of interest to users wanting to set up conventional text and number-onented applications. K- Pack comes with the usual high-quality HiSoft documentation.
Mini Office (Europress Software) Supplier: Europress Price: £59.99 Details: Another integrated package which includes easy-to-use flat file database facilities.
Order v2.54 (Shadow Software - formerly South Hams Software) Supplier: Shadow Software Price: £19.95 Details: This is one of the few budget-priced database programs that support multiple-file. Relational links and in this respect it is considerably more powerful than other offerings of a similar price.
Order has had a rough ride in the review press and there is no doubt that many (but not all) criticisms of the early releases were valid and the poor original documentation did nothing to help.
Since the early days however a great many improvements have been made and the price has been brought down to a level where Order has become extremely good value for money. It is not as easy to set up as a simple flat-file database program (relational type databases never are) but it is recommended for users who need some relational capability but cannot afford one of the more expensive heavyweight commercial offenngs.
Pen Pal (Softwood) Supplier: Softwood Products Europe Price: £49.95 Details: Pen Pal is an integrated package that combines word processing and page form design facilities with a simple database program. It’s an attractive, well pneed offering and although its database facilities sometimes seem to border more on the spreadsheet rather than a database-type arrangement, it does nevertheless provide a set of record creation and use facilities which are quite sufficient for many flat file purposes.
Philo Supplier: Your Choice Price: £3.50 Details: This is a licenceware database program (disk CLU07) which is easy to use and perfectly adequate for simple applications.
Continued overleaf Relational databases With some data storage programs each application has its own set of data files. You might, if you were say a consultant, have an appointments program that stored records containing details of client names and addresses along with notes about any work earned out.
You might also have a mailshot application which stored standard letters along with, again, client names and addresses.
These individual program and associated file arrangements are often called flat file applications and are so named because individual data files are just straightforward collection of identical format records with no interaction or links between the datafiles of various applications areas.
Independent flat file approaches are fine in many cases but when uses of the items held in the data files overlap all manner of problems start to appear.
In the above example the use of separate appointment and mailshot programs means that client names and addresses need to be stored twice and this duplication or redundancy is a waste of space.
More importantly it is necessary to remember to update the client details in both data files when changes need to be made.
The whole idea of the relational methodology is to separate the data from its use in a way which both allows many programs to use a common set of data tiles, and any number of differing input and output views to be imposed on the various items of data stored.
The software which enables this to be done is called a Relational DataBase Management System (RDBMS) or more commonly nowadays, a relational database program.
The database version of the above consultant scenario would involve an appointments work-done file, a mailshot file, and a client details tile that would be shared by both appointment and mailshot applications.
Changes to client details made from the appointments area of the application automatically become immediately available for mailshot use (and vice versa) without any further data entry, The result? Less work. Less chance of mistakes.
Easy life!

Product listings continued PowerBase (AmiVision) Supplier: AmiVision Price: £14.95 Details: This program started out as a hcencewarc title and has now grown into a fully-fledged, but budget priced, commercial offering. PowerBase allows users to set up record definitions for specified files and then enter, edit and retrieve data using SuperBase-style VCR controls. Text, numeric, date, time, logical (ie Boolean Yes No, True False fields), percentage and calculation fields are allowed along with an external field which can provide links to both Ascii text and IFF picture files.
Powerbase offers a good Workbench 2 style interlace and, among other things, a reasonable set of search and filter facilities. Filtered records (ie a subset of records which satisfy some chosen search criteria) can be sent to the screen, the printer, or a file and there is a label mode which can suppress the printing of field names (useful for pnnting mailing labels - hence the name).
Although it’s possible to create as many separate files as you want, there are no inter-file link mechanisms available. In other words this is a simple flat-file system!
Despite these limitations the program is fair value for money and perfectly adequate for first time users or others with simple database needs.
QuickBase Supplier: Your Choice Price: £1.30 Details: Fairly average freeware flat file database program (disk BU009).
S-Base 4 Personal (Oxxi) Supplier: HiSoft Price: £129.95 Details; S-Base is the new name for what used to be the SuperBase range and this offering, like SuperBase Personal before it, is likely to continue as the most popular Amiga Database program in the UK. Its VCR-styled control panel approach is easy to use and the program flexible enough to be used for all but the most demanding of database applications.
S-Base 4 Professional (Oxxi) Supplier: HiSoft Price: £249 Details: This is the package formerly known as SuperBase Professional. It's another truly heavyweight database package which provides sophisticated database creation, search filtering and reporting facilities along with its own Basic-style database language (with Arexx and comms support) Both in terms of use and the facilities offered S-Base 4 Professional is rather different from DataRetrieve Professional (its main heavyweight rival) but there's no doubt that the S-Base product is an extremely capable program and another one tor power

Stevie Kennedy finds out _JS.
, ¦ r.f- . M, , , , rr-y I -| Dom Casual Clear Gothic Bold Chantilly Rochester After ihe activity of a year ago when Wordworth 2 and Final Copy emerged in a flurry of renewed fighting over the Amiga productivity market, things have been rather quiet on the word processing front. Ever since that time, though. SoftWood's designers have been beavering away at a secret weapon designed to end the war by Christmas.
Understandably similar in appearance, but there is much more to Final Writer than at first meets the eye. In fact, to compare it directly to FCII is like comparing a Ford Escort to a Sierra Cosworth simply because they bear the same manufacturer's stamp and design style.
To attract users with big job requirements, Final Writer starts with a battery of improved layout and document handling facilities, the most important of which is the master page approach. Simply put, this enables the user to create a template of every page in the document bearing common information such as the document title, section headings, page numbers, and so on, making document processing a much easier job.
For example, if the title of a document is changed, it is a simple matter to change the master page for all pages to bear the new title, and if a logo is to appear on Final Writer is a natural successor to Final Copy II, the program on which it is based, and attempts to answer some of the criticisms its little brother has attracted.
Though a high quality package capable of superb output and with graphics management second to none in its field, FCII lacked many of the power word processing features enjoyed by its rivals.
A carefully crafted user interface, slick presentation, and ease of use guaranteed FCII a large and appreciative audience, but without strength in depth it could never hope to compete for the serious word-crunching jobs such as manuals, books, and lengthy reports to which Wordworth 2 was better suited. Final Writer tries to eradicate that gap and offer more power without losing the easy going nature of its ancestor.
In essence, the two programs are Final Writer Studio Bold Ultimate Ravenna Bold Dragon Worchester Stafford Jomc of th many fonts on offer every page, the graphic need only be inserted once on the master page. Even better. Final Writer offers a section-by- section layout tool which gives the user complete control over the different parts of a document, sections, one each for such components a the main body text, the title, pag J contents, and so on, and the user cal create sections and swap between them m will. In this way, a document containing two or more very different styles (such a the
difference between body text and i A document is treated as a number of DIY delights Final Writer is easily the most configurable Amiga word processor ever. It has a superb preferences menu similar to FCII s, but on top of this it has a user- definable button bar and menu, and an Arexx macro system with 26 pre-defineo scripts.
There is no auto-record for these macros, which means that users will have to master the basics of Arexx before writing their own, but the button bar and menu should negate the need for most of us to use the 174 dedicated Arexx commands.
To change the default button bar. Users need only select the appropriate prefer ences option, Choose a new button icon, and assign a menu command, Arexx script, or string command (a single Arexx command) to the button. There can be as many button strips as needed, though two will usually be enough, and the user can swap between them at will.
An auto-record feature, such as that planned for PageStream 3.0, would have significantly enhanced the power of Arexx macros for beginners, but the potential is at least there if required. Given the almost obsequious nature of the user-friendly button bar and user menu, Arexx macros tend to lose some of their significance, but many are very useful.
For example, the package has no option to make text bold, as this will normally involve loading the bold equivalent of the present typeface, but Arexx macros are available to be assigned to user buttons which will create the equivalent of bold, plain, and bold-italic text without the user having to load Thr o cr Putton Bar anolhSfr WAr on option It ilmplklty Itself SOFTWARE!

Part 3: Do you get your Inspiration from a bottle?
Alladin was tlie third son of a lonely lybian slieep herder whose main aim in life was to collect more old lamps than lib deadly rfral, tlie powerful Sheik AI Habrini Througtiout his ctiildliood Aladin never questioned tlie growing number of bmken old lamps and candle stubs which slower took over the l two up two down terraced mud house lie shared with his mad dad, but as lie grew from boy to young man lie began to worry about Itis father’s fetish for obsolete sources of domestic ighting.
One day. As Alladin returned from an unsuccessful pot-hoHng ex- pedtion, he noticed In a remote rock cave a dull old lamp of tlie ge- nte-bearing variety and, unaMe to control his mounting excteinent, gave i a vfeorous rub. There was a flash, a bang, and when tlie acrid smote from the cheap fireworks drilted away, Aladin was astonished to see the blinp-ilce figure of a real fce Genie, walking around holding tlie small of his back and complaining about the fight.
* Er _ bdk ventured Alladin.| ’Are you a Gentet* Tlie fat
gaseous (% ure stopped his grouching and looked at Alla din as
if he were insane.
’No. I'm liere to read tlie meter. What do you think?* CL Irregular text flow simulated using Final Writer s line drawing tools &*&) needn't be split into separate but can be kept together as a of sections.
Section can have its own page "g or the user can set the page at which each section begins, so printing it is easy to stitch .iking back together.
TW main body of any document Has a number of default styles, but can define new styles, and as each can have its own master pages is a great deal of flexibility in the Default styles include settings for ic headings, the table of contents, _j*Pon, and all are user-definable.
Nike in Wordworth 2, the user can not only to automatically generate mdex or table of contents, but can also the font and text style in which the us elements of the table will be Large friendly requesters handle
• uch operations in style generation, each style can be assigned
a hot key.
Id short, there is little the program do that it isn't already doing to life easier for targe documents. With master page, sections, style tags, and iiatic list generation features, those g long reports or novels will find in package a lot of time and energy attractions.
SCIENTIFIC In any legal or scientific document, the body of text is more often than not ged in sections which may have their topic headings or a simple section tifier such as l.(a).ii. To cater for this of document. Final Writer gives the complete control over how outlines generated.
Automatic generation of the outline is ‘ermined by the styles used in a ument, so that if we wanted all topics included we would go to the definition requester and indicate at t level in the outline each type of topic appears.
At first this can be a little confusing,
- a sample document would have ped new users, but with practice
the outlining of complex documents should be no more difficult
than marking words for inclusion in the index.
Other layout tools include multiple columns complete with vertical justification, hanging indents, and text boxes. The latter is a very DTP*esque feature and seems to lift Final Writer into the publishing arena, but in reality it is of limited use.
Text boxes can be created easily enough, moved around, rotated, resized, and treated to all extents and purposes as free agents on the page, but thev Can contain only a single line of text and are therefore of use only for headings and logos.
Improved flexibility does, of course, come with the ability to take a word and stretch, rotate, and re-colour it, but nowhere near as much flexibility as would be gained from treating all text as a page element.
All other operations regarding text and its handling are sound and well thought out, containing many options more usually associated with DTP. Of particular interest is the control over text width, leading, and oblique angle.
By selecting an area of text and using the width option, words can be given a new width from between 50 per cent and 150 per cent of the default for that typeface. Again, leading (the space between lines of text) can be controlled by selecting the number of points between each tine (one point being 1 72 inch).
Oblique control offers the user a definable amount of italic-like slant in Defining styles with the simple requester letters, either to the left or the right, and can be used in conjunction with other effects to create an unusual look for a masthead or logo. It is no substitute for a proper italicised typeface, and will seldom make an appearance in body text, but oblique can be a useful design tool.
With capitalisation under the beadv eve of yet another option, offering all caps, normal, or small caps. Final Writer's text handling facilities come right up to scratch with the notable exception of a show invisibles toggle. This feature, to enable the user to see carriage returns, tabs, and spaces on-screen represented symbolically, is a basic of just about every other word processor in the world and a breathtaking omission from Final Copy II.
When the same omission cropped up on the professional follow up to FCII, I for one was puzzled and disappointed. Many might think this is a point of pedantry, but when loading a file from another source, perhaps an Ascii file from a CoverDisk or PD disk, or a document saved as Ascii from another word processor, it is absolutely vital that one can "light up" the control codes to see where the document might have a lot of double spaces, tabs, carriage returns at the end of lines, and so on.
If such control is not possible, the hassle of re-formatting a document blind has to be experienced to be believed, and 1 would beg SoftWood to make good the fault as soon as possible.
On a brighter note, Final Writer is a superb handler of graphics, the one area _J Set Defau Fkey Shortcut • None FT F2 Menu Definition Style Names Document Ttfle Section Name Topic Name Suo Topic 1 Sup Topic 2 Body Mom Styles r a I UrtWfl - Motn (Body) I Final Writs in which most other word processors take a dive. All IFF bitmap formats are supported as is the industry standard encapsulated PostScript (EPS), and either can be imported and displayed in full colour.
Speed of Operation when graphics are involved can slow to a crawl on some packages, but Final Writer shows its SoftWood pedigree by providing both speedy treatment of imported graphics and a few built-in tricks of its own.
Lines, boxes, and ellipses can be drawn directly on screen using icons on the button bar, and text flowed around them in the same way as imported graphics, giving the program a distinct edge in presentation terms. Creating documents with borders and other graphical content is much easier than in any other Amiga word processor, and screen update is refreshingly fast- That's not to say speed doesn't suffer, and in 256-colour mode the program can become a bit tiresome. However, while Final Writer is being tiresome most other packages would have reached the "never mind. I'll hire a couple of
scribes" stage, and the program has more than one tactical approach to feline de-furrification.
When large Ham8 or EPS pictures begin to slow things down a bit, simply changing the way the images are displayed is easy. The user can change each picture individually or all in a ?

Document at once, so the largest can he turned off while the smaller graphics are displayed properly.
As soon as they are bumped into preview mode, on-screen images are replaced by a box containing a diagonal cross in time-honoured newspaper paste-up fashion, thus speeding up scrolling and screen refresh. In this wav, pictures can be viewed in full colour to check that they don’t clash with the document's other colours, then switched off to save speed.
Imported graphics cannot be rotated, but any lines or shapes produced using the integral drawing tools can, which makes them useful as bounding lines. This is a technique whereby the user draws a series of lines close around a complex imported graphic, then flows text around the bounding lines rather than the image.
Irregular text flow is therefore possible even when the image is imported in a solid box of colour. The package offers contoured text flow to the left or right, but not both sides at once, so the bounding lines compromise comes in particularly handy in some documents.
All graphics can be treated as free page elements and moved around at will, but to retain control once the number of images and text boxes grows, Final Writer offers a few handling tools. Group and Ungroup perform their obvious functions, enabling the user to move and scale a group of images as one, while Lock and Unlock can be used to avoid unnecessary waits for screen refreshes because a graphic has accidentally been moved a tenth of a millimetre.
A whopping 100 EPS images, some good, some feeble, are included with the package and are accompanied by 120 outline fonts in the NimbusQ format.
Final Writer will also accept any AGFA or Adobe Type 1 PostScript fonts, a fact which is particularly welcome given that it will print EPS images and PostScript fonts to any printer, and has a good custom PostScript driver for the rich users out there.
At times, the screen display of such fonts is less than perfect, and at normal (100 per cent) magnification, nine point text can be difficult to read.
Final Writer attempts to offset this by giving the user control of screen resolution, which can be set up to 300 by 300 dots per inch using the excellent preferences menu, but the only real answer is to buy a bigger monitor or use the 125 per cent viewing setting.
Flipping back and forward in view modes can be annoying, but as there are three ways of doing this (menu, button strip, and holding down Alt while clicking the mouse button), the user at least has plenty of choice.
Navigation in general is a pleasure with this program, as the user can jump between sections, use the scroll bars to quickly jump from one part to another, use ihe page button, or select Go To Page Tares- tJgSJ

Writer Supplier: Gordon Harwood Computers Price: £129.99
Phone: 0773 836781 Ease of use 9 Implementation 9 Value for
money 9 Overall 9 Missing links If Final Writer doesn't quite
live up to the claims that it rivals Microsoft Word, it is
because of a small list of annoying omissions and features
that haven't been finished off. None of these is particularly
damaging, but there are enough of them to ensure that the
package is flawed.
Of most concern is the lack of a show invisibles option, discussed elsewhere, which can make editing imported text very awkward, but up there on top with this is the lack if an undo edit feature. Both basic features should be implemented as soon as possible.
In other areas, it is impossible to copy text from the document and paste it into search and replace requesters, and there is no highlight and drag capability. Both are found in the leading PC and Mac word processors, and both can be great time savers.
Another omission is the lack of bookmarks, used in Wordworth 2. Which enable the user to jump to pre-arranged places in a document, and the absence of any sample documents with related tutorials might dismay first time WP users.
Limited options on Ascii import export can also be a pain, and the rotate function s refusal to work with imported graphics sets a limit on page design.
Finally, the auto-save feature is very poor, as it throws up a requester every time it is about to save out and asks the user to confirm.
Excuse me. But isn't the word "automatic" to be found somewhere in the term "auto-save"?
Final Writer enjoys excellent printed output thanks to its built-in PostScnpt printer driver and its ability to send EPS images and outline fonts to any printer. If a dot matrix or bubble jet printer is used. Final Writer will coax the unit's best resolution from it, ensuring that the quality of hard copy is as good as it can be.
The clean way in which outline fonts appear from a cheap bubble jet is very impressive, and is as good as any of the top notch DTP packages. EPS graphics printed at 300dpi on a Canon BJ10 are similarly satisfying, so documents output to one of the middle range printers such as the Canon or the HP DeskJet series should be acceptable for home or business use.
Printing preferences are available for the program's final (best quality) or draft (images printed as preview boxes) settings, and for graphics printing Dithering can be either ordered or halftone, and the PostScnpt printer preferences also offer custom halftone from the menus. This pattern repeats itself throughout the package, which offers two or three ways of doing everything before the user even considers Arexx macros or the user-definablebuttons and menus, and this is a tribute to the thought which has so obviously gone into the whole package.
From the 700 page manual (I'd have preferred it ring-bound, but never mind) to the smooth operation of just about every feature, Final Writer is a product which oozes professionalism and an attention to detail.
As a word processor, it has several advantages over Word worth 2, hitherto the leader on the serious side of things, and yet it has all the qualities and more Printed output &**, C*« Os CX'-scu. C*n:* °4 CteLtov*. Clwtvix »» *¦ and.___

Power up your A500 with the very best in Amiga penpherals. Give your computer a new lease of life with a hard drive or accelerator plus hard dnve from GVP.
These powerful, award-winning products plug neatly into your A50Q or A500pivs, giving you more storage and more speed. The improvements don’t stop there! In almost every area of Amiga operations these GVP peripherals can enhance the performance of your A500 or A500plus. Both models can upgrade your Amiga's RAM. Making operations run even faster. You can add a PC emulator, (featured below left), which enables you to run thousands of PC software titles. Further hard drives, back-up systems and CD-ROM drives can also be added via the built-in SCSI interface. The list is endless. GVP's HD8+ and
A530 are the undisputed premier Amiga peripherals available.
If you were thinking about upgrading to an A1200 or A4000. Think again. With a GVP A530 Accelerator upgrade, your A500 will be 14 times faster than a normal A500.
Almost nine times faster than an A1200 and over one and a half times faster than the mighty A40Q0 030 (see chart below)- AT NEW LOW PRICES!
MORE SPEED HARD DRIVES+ RAM EXPANSION . GVP HD8+ Hard Drive will have an immediate effect on your Amiga. Where you used to constantly swap disks, wait for files and programs to load and sit around waiting for disk accesses, you will now be pushed to keep up with the speed of your Amiga, Hard drives are used for the same storage purposes as floppy disks, but can hold a great deal more information and access this data much more quickly.
The A500 HD8+ (pictured above) provides the ultimate in hard drive performance, it can also increase the memory of your Amiga by up to 8Mb. Support up to six SCSI devices and provide PC compatible emulation via its custom expansion slot (mini slot) see left.

Making your A500 faster than you thought possible • almost nine times faster than an A1200. And. Fitting a PGA maths CO-processor (40mhz 68882. Ref: UPG 1982. £129 nc vat) can improve this still further, with some operations being 300 times faster than an A500. In addition you can add up to 8md of 32-M RAM, which further enhances performance FASTER THAN AN A1200 or A4000 030 An A500 with
the GVP A530 fitted will be considerably faster than either the A1200 or A4000. This is possible because Ihe A530 uses a 40MHz 68030EC processor, whilst the A1200 uses the slower 14.19mh* 68020ec processor and the A4000-030 uses the 25mhz 68030ec processor Features include:

become synonymous with quality products with the leading
being the ubiquitous ADPro.
Editing and this isn’t the only success story ASDC. Stable.
Mfcwgh less gl amorous than its image
* wing counterpart CygnusEd il - or CED as its predecessor known
- is a long-standing award control hough only exactly hot news
for kids, the new CEDPro could well to be the Lemmings of the
program- trorld as countless members of the collared community
cast aside lesser editors and leap into the open arms of Paul
Austin casts a kindly eye on the latest release from ASDG and
the ultimate in infra red control for VlabY C : and foremost
comes the program's :ted level of undo, which as you'd allows
it to back-track any changes to the file.
SPEEDS Next up comes the impressive search replace facilities which can be utilised interactively or via with the a light- fast turbo mode. In addition the func- ibo support history - so you'll never to re-type repeated patterns.
As you'd expect Arexx is well supported and as a result it's possible to taftroct other packages - such as cpmpil-
- to call CEDPro and even place the cursor on the exact line
where an error has occurred.
Yet another programmer-friendly fea- ter allows CEDPro to detect bracket and beace errors within the code in addition to direct editing of binary files.
Macros are another area in which it scores well. Simply start the function and the program will remember all subsequent keystrokes. Once complete this new macro can be assigned to any single or combination of keys. It's even possible to call a special macro editor with which to edit existing macros when necessary. Like its predecessor, you can edit literally dozens of different files or file areas simultaneously. As for speed, there are no complaints - although there rarely are with any text editor. However, no matter how many files you have open it's highly unlikely you'll ever need to wait
for the program to catch up with your editing exploits.
Specialised needs are also catered for with numerous options including command key bindings, variable tab sizes, word wrap, screen sizing and definable colours - even the scroll speed can be defined and saved. In fact alternative set-ups can be recalled as required.
GA Update Compatibility also shouldn't prove a problem as the program works across the entire range while making the best of AmigaDOS, employing the Clipboard to share its output with other packages.
Even crashes caused by other packages need not be terminal as CEDPro has the ability to recover edit sessions if disaster strikes. Combine this with a user definable timed saved and you're looking at arguably the most secure file editing system on the market.
Obviously with the myriad of PD and shareware text editors CEDPro is strictly for the pros. However if you demand the best and are will to pay for it CEDPro could well become the ADPro of the programming world.
Product: Cygnus Ed Professional Supplier: Silica Systems Tel: 081-309 1111 Price: £79.95 Automation with AirLink If you’re among the numerous videophiles who’ve invested in VlabY C the word.
AirLink may inspire a distant memory of promised automation. For those unfamiliar with VlabY C. The connection between the two revolves around VlabY C’s IFR frame grabbing capability.
IFR - interleave frame recording - gives VlabY C the unique ability to grab unlimited sequential 24-bit frames from live video. To achieve this, it first picks a reference point on the tape, followed by a starting frame, from which a user defined number of frames are then grabbed.
The beauty of the system is that any VCR can be used for the process and better still no timecode is required on the tape itself: the software quite literally remembers which frames have been grabbed and then attempts to grab the remainder on a subsequent pass over the tape.
The only problem with this approach is its heavy dependence on user time as the software demands constant rewinding of the tape ready for the next pass.
However thanks to AirLink hours spent at the controls of a VCR are a thing of the past. Existing users may recall that IFR’s control window provides the option to not only execute a processing script on images but also add a rewind Arexx macro which can call on Airlink to do all the hard work for you.
As a result complete automa- lion is now possible with the only user input being initial scene selection and IFR set-up - after which you can leave your Amiga and the VCR to their own devices.
No matter which application you apply AirLink on the basic set-up procedure remains the same. First you must install the hardware - this takes the form of a cable connected to a small Infra red transmitter receiver, the other end of which slots into the Amiga's free joystick port.
Handy hotkeys Once installed you simply run the AirLink software which provides numerous examples along with the essential sampler program. As the name suggests this allows you to program AirLink to emulate literally any infra red remote controller.
In order to control a device you simply design a graphic representation of a remote control panel using the paint package of your choice. The Airlink software then allows you to add button areas to the graphic - appending the appropriate remote control command on each. These graphic remotes can then be saved out.
Complete with hotkey combinations, and recalled when required.
Actually programming Airlink is very simple: you just activate the sampler program, record the signals from the original remote you wish to control and then append the appropriate signal to the button in question.
Alas that’s all that space will allow for this month, but tune in next time for more on AirLink and its immense potential within a multimedia environment.

Finally we enter the loop zone where the movement is calculated: Repeat Td Angle 1,A,0,A This is like a Bob command, where the angle of the object in all of the three dimensions is fixed.
4=4+1000 Increment the X dimension and our object will tumble.
Cls 0 Td Redraw Screen Snip Wait Vbt Until False Hidden gems The disk also features details of some undocumented Td Commands like the one to define order in which objects are drawn: Td Priority n,p where n = Object number and p - Object drawing prionty This allows you to specify the order in which objects are drawn by the 3D system. In other words objects that are drawn first appear in front of other objects. The command makes some interesting special effects possible: Priority,p Object driving order which translates as: Driv tit object in the noml viy (by depth) Inv tie object in front of all
other object!
Vitl a lover priority Irev the object behind ill other objects with higher priority.
LT his month we'll go into how you actually move objects around using Amos 3D. As the is an extension to the Amos lan- pM$ r. There are some special commands MM the standard Amos command ¦I which you can use to move objects ¦Nnd in 3D space I Ohce the Amos 3D extension has been PmI to your program, you can load and ¦Mt 3D objects in your normal Amos rams using a series of new ds.
I Mow you have to come to terms with ¦far idea of space - 3D space. The world ¦to* has a trio of axes, called x, v and .
Ifarare used to using x and y on the computer screen, and translating objects ¦round that screen merely involves jMding numbers to their x,y co-ordinates I - like the numbers which tell a move j nte command to shift the position of a Npnte But now you have an extra dimen- [ **vn, that of depth, and this is the 1 famension.
With Amos 3D there are a new set of [owimands called "Td” commands, and ; face preface any 3D commands you put J fa your programs, like this example: Td Dir *30* This points to the disk which contains the TD objects, It’s the 3D version of the
* Dirt=" command you get in Amos. Next ja few commands you will
be familiar with: Hide : Doable Buffer : Autobick 0 V you are
moving sprites, even 3D ones, you'll need to be double
buffering to cut the amount of unnecessary flicker. Next 'ou
have to load the object: Td load "cbeckBark'1 Td Object
Vriieckwrk*,!),0,5000,(1,5000,- 4000 FFF,Jf,J777 The process is
not unlike that of loading and positioning a sprite. First you
load By default all objects have a priority of 0. Note that if
two objects have non-zero priority the one with the highest
priority will be drawn first (in front).
The other undocumented feature is TD SET COLOUR which sets a specified object block's colour combination, like so: Td Set Colour n,b,t where n = Object number, b = Block number and c = Colour combination code of the block (same as in OM).
This command is the language equivalent of OM's colour combination tool described in the 3D manual. It sets the colour combination code of the specified block.
Valid colour numbers range from 0 to 16. Colour combinations 0 to 12 are the same as in OM, colour combinations 13-15 are new. An out of range colour code will be truncated to the nearest valid code without causing an error.
The object, in this case "checkmark". This is loaded from the disk you pointed to as being your 3D directory. Then the Td Object command positions the object on the screen. It's object 1, its name is "checkmark", and we want it positioned as described in the command.
The first three figures are the position of the object in space, so we have x=0, y=0 and z=5,000. This is pretty much dead centre on the screen. Next wre want an attitude, and this doesn't mean your shape should be talking back and dissing you.
Attitude describes the direction the shape is pointing, in this case A=0, Br5000 and C=*4000. This in unimportant if the shape in question is a cube, but if it's a spaceship you'll want it to be the right way up and pointing in the direcAnd wrap it all up with drawing the screen and waiting for the next vertical blank before you alter the position of the object. It's all basically the same kind of deal as moving sprites around the screen.
Obviously you now have to learn to think in 3D, but that goes with the territory, Vectors are hard to do in normal circumstances, but this program should make the whole thing really that much easier to cope with. You can sketch out your 3D ideas on graph paper beforehand, just to give you an idea ¦ Y J of what vou want. R » - ¦ Missed last issue’s first part of the tutorial?

GO. BACKGAMMON. BRIDGE. RENJU. 4 IN LIME AMD CHINESE CHESS OUR PRICE ONL Y £20.88 GRAPHICS ImtoVision aren't new to the business «f TV graphics, and (heir ground- towkrng Broadcast Titler package has Btftng been a standard of excellence in its high quality fonts and smooth ing. Now the company have from the purely titling arena into graphics proper with the release of e 24, a program designed to not only text titling, but 24-bit and transition effects.
Ten minutes. Part of the reason for this is the program's relatively simple purpose in life, which is purely to produce text on a backdrop, but the designers should also take credit for keeping things as straight- forward as possible.
Montage will run on either an AGA Amiga or a machine equipped with the OpalVision or IV24 cards, and works best when teamed up with OpalVision. In this configuration, Montage can utilise full 24- bit graphics and a full complement of 20 transitions, 13 of which work with AGA Ml* t,xt bad'dropt.ond bruihet with rate Montage is a sizeable package supplied
• ta disks and comprising the main itself, some tutorial data,
and anti-aliased fonts. The latter use a rietary format and are
the only es available for use in Montage, tough ange of font
packs will be tfrmi as back-up and a module should DB be
released making it possible for m to treat PostScript fonts as
Montage Smooth talker A disadvantage of this approach is that
If user is dependent on future releases InnoVision, but the
advantages igh this. With the carefully opti- ¦toed typefaces
supplied as standard it is enible to carry out a wide range of
tophisticated operations on your text.
SUPERB Stevie Kennedy wipes and fades with Montage 24, the latest high quality TV graphics package Text can be scaled in any way, coloured «mg mooth gradients, given a variable unt of soft or sharp shadow, ¦abossed, bevelled, or even re-kemed, all
* nth superb anti-aliasing. There can be no
• ttuses for shoddy presentation text when mu're using this
package, as over half the loadable functions are dedicated to
con- tolling the use of high quality verbage.
All operations are carried out using the Inendlv "big button" interface used on ¦ost video and TV software packages i ese days. Everything hides behind nice jtsy buttons on clear, uncluttered panels, the main areas of interest are sensibly fcparated into screens of their own.
The beginner should therefore have frw problems with Montage, and the well written, concise 130-page manual could hr find itself back on the shelf inside PtEinvai'di "111 Uoutage ton produce top quollty TV graphki and only two with IV24. On a standard A4000, Montage is comfortable enough, if fussy about the system setup. All Workbench overscan settings must be reset to default and mode promotion must be turned off or the program won't run properly. This is a pain when used on a machine which has a multi-purpose role and therefore a multitude of overscan and monitor settings, but shouldn't be a
problem if Montage is being used in a purely video environment.
When first used, Montage can have a strange initial impression as all pages in a sequence are set up on a HAM preview screen which only roughly represents the finished image, then rendered as either 24-bit or super hi-res HamH. Finished images once rendering is complete are superb and quickly dispel any doubts brought on by the HAM preview which, to bo fair, is designed to make production as quick as possible. When working in 24- bit it can be more than a little memory and time consuming to throw chunks of picture data around, so by demanding that everything takes place in HAM before final
rendering, Montage avoids long waits during production.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about rendering or the final playback of complete sequences. Rendering each page can take a while, particularly if the page includes a lot of text which has been coloured, scaled, and so on.
As each page can be a fairly monstrous 24-bit file, Montage loads each from disk as it plays them back, which means that in addition to the rendering delay there is a relatively slow rate of playback.
For example, an average page might take seven seconds or so to load and be displayed using a page transition effect, a delay which though perfectly acceptable for many purposes would restrict many videographers. Montage partly makes up for this with a couple of tricks in the triggering department.
Pages may be set to display immediately upon loading, which is fine for looping information displays, but the user can also set a timed transition or choose to use the General Purpose Interface (CPI) trigger. This is a method by which Montage can be triggered to go to the next page by a GPI switch connected to a VCR, making possible the use of Montage pages genlocked over live video action.
The inclusion of this sort of triggering gives Montage an outlet in the multimedia point-of-sale world as well as opening up many more dramatic uses during presentation, and with its top notch results, easy operating environment, and decent transition effects it should do well as a dedicated graphics package.
With the reservations that speed of playback could be improved and the fact that Montage grabs hold of the system and refuses to multitask, it is difficult not to recommend this program to the videog- rapher in search of broadcast-quality graphics.
As a dedicated system, it is perhaps not ideal for the home video enthusiast, but if the question "how can I title my video to a higher quality?" Is put, Montage 24 might well be the answer.

The A gadget controls angles, letting you move the camera's perspective of the object by moving the actual view nf the object. Z controls zoom, letting you move the view in and out.
Subtle but powerful is the P, Perspective, gadget; this lets you change the perspective view, so that, for instance, a checkerboard floor will appear to be made from squares instead of diamonds, (It's like adjusting the angle on a telephoto camera lens to remove distortion.)
A new FOV (Field Of View) menu item lets you precisely adjust the camera's view field between 10 and 120 degrees for similar effect.
The Quick Edge feature makes moving objects around much quicker. You can define only certain edges to show up, so you can, for instance, onlv view the outImpulse's long-awaited Imagine 3.0 hadn't quite shipped when this issue went to press, but the company did ship an interim version - Imagine 2,9 - to their registered users.
Since 3.0 was taking longer to finish than expected. Impulse sent out 2.9 - which has many of the new features - so current Imagine users could get started with some of the new capabilities, and act as testers for the new program aspects. By the time you read this, Imagine 3.0 should be available, and we'll have an update on the full program in an upcoming issue.
If you're not familiar with Imagine, it's a 3D rendering program with a quad-view editor, powerful animation capabilities, and fast rendering speed. Although the previous release. Imagine 2.0, didn't have the massive feature set of newer programs like Real 3D 2.0, it did have fast rendering, fairlv bug-free operation, and a massive library of commercial, shareware and I’D objects and utilities to support it.
Some ma|or new features are coming in Imagine 3.0. These include bones, kinematics, improved anti-aliasing, new light sources with improved shadows and shadow mapping. Also coming in the release version are new stage and animation tools, and the long-awaited improved manual. Version 2.9 comes with a 23-page addendum that discusses the new features, With Imagine 3’s release imminent, Denny Atkin takes a peek at Imagine
2. 9, which has many of the new versions features and is shipping
now Imagine has always been a fantastically powerful program,
but the poor documentation has previously been of little
help in getting you over the program’s learning curve, There's
plenty new in Imagine 2.9. These features are strikingly
obvious, as Impulse put almost all of them in a menu called
New, figuring that everyone who got release 2.9 would
immediate want to jump in and play with them immediately.
But the most useful feature - the one that alone makes this upgrade worth the price - isn't obvious immediately: Imagine has a new real-time interface. Now objects actually' move around in real-time in the Perspective window as you drag and resi e them. There’s no way 1 can emphasise enough how much easier this makes it to compose scenes.
In each of the editors you'll find three line of your aeroplane’s fuselage and wings while working in the editor. This not only speeds up redraws, but makes it much easier to differentiate objects, since the screen is far less cluttered without the tiny triangles that usually make up objects everywhere.
These functions work in all the editors that use the quad-view interface. You'll find plenty of new features in the individual editors as well. In the detail editor, the primary place where objects are created and modified, the new Load Save DXF menu items let you import and export objects in AutoDesk PXF format.
This Ls the most popular object format in the IBM-compatible world, and will let you access the huge library of objects available for those machines.
There are a number of new Deformation functions for modifying existing objects, These include Twist, Shear, Taper, Pinch, Bend, and Stretch.
You can select the gadgets at the bottom of the screen and manually deform objects and primitives using your mouse, or you can choose the equivalent menu item and use requesters to precisely define how you want to deform objects.
Next to Deformations in the New menu is the Particles option. Particles art' objects
- spheres, cubes, even dodecahedrons - which can replace the
faces of your object.
See the "A" in the Imagine-rendered Amiga Computing logo for an example.
You can have an object appear to be created from bubbles, use particles to make object look like it's evaporating, or any number of other organic-looking functions.
Imagine doesn't let you control the behaviour of individual particles but instead ties them into the original polygon faces of your object. This is done to keep the amount of controllable objects down to a realistic number.
You can now use the Fracture function in Object mode to create some impressive effects. Fracture breaks up the triangles that make an object. If you type in a Fracture value of 1.?, for instance, your object will be 1.5 times larger than it was before. But the extra space is now between the triangles that make up the object.
Progressively larger fracture values in an animation can be used to make it look like an object is exploding; if you fracture an object to a large degree, tween back to the original object, and run this reversed- fracture, it can make an object look like it's forming from thin air - a verv impressivd effect.
Other new functions include Lattici which is handy for making frameworl like the inner structures of buildings ai : space stations (see the new Imagine logoi hid!
For an example of this); Applique, whi lets vou wrap an image onto an object deform the triangles that make it up creating a 3D effect that corresponds the grey-scale brightness of each pixel the image; and Wave, which is a ripp effect.
The new Check Obj menu item id handv for finding and correcting prob-f lems like duplicate points or improp edges in objects. Although you’re n likely to have these* problems with objec you create yourself, they often show up objects translated by conversion softwa or third-party object editors.
Finally in the Detail editor you'll findl the new States function. This innocuous!
Menu item packs a lot of power.] Essentially, it lets you define different] states - size, shape, and other charactons-j tics - of objects or groups of objects A simple example would be a box that I vou morph into a teardrop. You create the!
Initial box with a certain shape and colour, then vou define that state as BOX. Then morph and otherwise change the object, and save that state as TEAR. Now you can save the single object which has both "stales'' of the object stored in the file.
You might have an aeroplane that has] PREVIEW!
Design Team Code Sack Knutson Design' Mike Hahrorscn Textures.- Scon Kireen Terfnc Ar-’ Helvetian Larry HaJvorson AD Rights Reservitl hnpulse. Int. 1990.91.92.93 34l6Xtf5tt? Ar?. Mart* Minneapolis. Minnesota 5544-1 UNDER CONSTRUCTION This Interim release puts the new features In their own menus; this Is the Detail Iditor title screen: note the use of the new texture and lattice features In the word Imagine ‘ ftre different states where the propeller is I m a different position for each one, or you ®uld have a human figure with different states depending on the position of the Umbs. You can
tween between states, making movements or morphs between Mates a snap.
States can also be used to do texture and image tacking. This solves a problem with earlier versions of Imagine where textures and images would "slip off" of an object when you manipulated its shapes.
By tacking the texture down it maintains its position on the polygons that make up the object. Now you can twist a T-Rex's neck around without worrying that the impressive new Dinosaur Skin texture wpn't follow his head as it turns.
Extrude. Although this feature is nice for creating some objects, I've found it most handy for text.
The spline editor will load IBM-format PostScript Type 1 fonts, making bringing text into Imagine a simple process - no more loading individual character objects and meticulously positioning them to get the best effect.
To create the "Amiga Computing" picture above, I simply entered the Spline Editor, chose a PostScript font (1 configured Imagine to look at the PSFonts directory in my PageStream drawer, and it automatically made all the fonts Impulse have hesitated at replacing the current polygon-based object creation system with a spline-based one due to performance considerations - although some functions in Imagine aren't as intuitive in as in some other programs, generally the rendering takes place much faster, and Impulse don't want to lose that advantage. In the meantime, though, they've included a
2D spline editor for creating shapes which you can then available), and typed "Amiga", stamped that down, and typed "Computing". I then grouped the two objects and used the Add Points commend to extrude and bevel the text to make it 3D. I saved the resulting object and loaded it into the Detail editor where I added colour and Can you feel it?
Imagine now sports 50 impressive new textures. Among these are Confetti. Crumpled, DinoSkin, Leather. Monster, Mosaic. Stained Glass, Bath Tile, Gas Giant, Lens Flare. Death Star, and the icky WormVein. These are all configurable and each texture can be used to create a multitude of effects.
Unfortunately, due to a change in the texture system, you can t use the Essence texture packages created for Imagine 2.0 Although they're not as necessary with all the new textures featured here, it might make bringing some of your old objects into the new version a bit more of a task as you'll need to redefine those textures. Also note that, with Imagine 2.9 at least, the texture.
In the Action editor you can now associate objects with each other. You can, for instance, set a camera to follow a plane through manoeuvres without having to mess with complicated paths or tracks.
You can also create Particle F X here.
You'll find special effects like Rain, Wind, textures only work with the floating-point version of Imagine, which requires a math co-processor. Impulse hopes to make them work with the Integer version by the time that 3.0 S released.
You can now view all the textures in all of their glory thanks to Imagine 2 9 s AGA support You can render in 256 colours or Ham8, It only supports direct rendenng to screen in sizes up to 640 x 512, though - you'll still need to render into custom sizes and use a package like ADPro to create pictures and animations m modes like Super72 or SuperHires.
Ham8 animation was bugged m 2.9. but should be fully functional in the 3.0 release.
And Delayed explosions which can affect youf objects. You can also control Emission here, so you can have particles "ejected" from an object, creating, for example, a parlicle-based comet-tail. (If you've ever seen the meteor at the opening of Slur Trek: Deep Space 9, this is what we're talking about.)
Although many of the new Stage tools didn't make it into this release, one major feature did. Which will make composing complicated animations much easier: Layers. Now you can load objects into different layers and "turn off" layers that you don't need at the moment. For instance, in a scene with a car speeding down a highway, you could load the ground, mad, signs, and trees into Layer 0, the oncoming traffic into layer t, and the main car into layer 2.
Once you've placed the scenery in layer 0, you’re not going to move it again, so you can then turn that layer off so that your screen redraws will take place much faster.
A huge help in designing your scenes are the new camera and light lines. These are essentially projections from the camera and lights that show exactly what parts of the screen fall into their field of view. This makes it much easier to manually track objects with cameras and lights - now you just point the projecting lines at the objects.
The 3.0 release promises to dramatically ease creating animations, with features like Bones and Kinematics.
Release 2.9 has been solid in my experience, and Impulse have managed to cram in a number of new features while actually reducing the amount of time many functions take. If you've used previous versions of Imagine, you'll definitely find this upgrade V,T|| worth every penny. » ! T United Public D i n n o v a t o r s ..

Keep getting better and better... find out what the PD PUBLIC u libraries have given y* us for Yuletide... JjlliW X wJNl World of Manga Produced by: Comax Available from: Graphic F X Disk No.AA 018 First up is World of Manga from Graphic F X who sent some interesting stuff in for review this month. This is a guided tour of what must be nearly even- Manga character ever drawn.
There are 40 AGA only slides in all on four disks presented in hi-res interlaced graphics. One of the most impressive features is the superb fade thru to the next image lhat the programmer*; have managed to pull off. The transition is silky smooth and really gives the whole package a very professional look.
The only negative point is that the images are not on Amiga DOS so there for cannot be lifted out and used elsewhere.
That aside, if you're into Manga and its ultra violence, ultra titillation and pounding action, then this is the perfect companion to the video cassettes stashed on your living room shelf.
Road to Hell Programmed by: Philjp G Harle Available from: Graphic F X Disk No: GA 069 Fortunately, this rather good overhead racing game is in no way related to that miserable, whinging song by Chris Rea.
Programmed by PG Harle, Road to Hell is a fast, edge of the seat, one or two-player chase round narrow bends and fast lanes to win the race and earn as much cash as possible.
Choose from the three different championships, Bronze, Silver or Gold and you’re placedfat the bottom of the league to take part in several races against either the computer or a friend with the intention of ending up the winner.
As race starts, the first thing noticed is the smooth scrolling and the hectic speed of the action; 180 degree comers to shoot round, kerbs to be avoided. If hit too many times, the car is destroyed and all is lost.
The action can be viewed either as full screen or split screen to see what the opposition is up to. As you progress through the game, more and more money is amassed which can then be spent in the shop on power steering, better tyres, armour plating, turbo chargers, smoke screens and what every racing sim needs, missiles to cripple the opponent, Road to Hell is packed with exciting features and professional touches that really show off the standard of shareware on the Amiga.
It would have been nice to have more cars on the track than just yourself and the rival driver but as it stands, this is a professional piece of software with attention- holding gameplav.
Beetle Produced by: Unique Styles Production Available from: Express PD Disk No: P431 Strange game this one - guide a lump with dangly bits for ears around a series of platforms collecting what look like baby grubs which, once fetched, whizz off to the top of the screen and are deducted from the amount that need grabbing. The Produced by: Instinct Another demo, supplied by Express PD, is Instinct, a collection of different artists' work making up a portfolio ol over ten pictures.
Running on any machine, this is quite an impressive gallery with varying different screen resolutions showing different styles of computer art from Frank Frazetta copies to Walt Disney images.
The music accompanying the show is laid-back and sexy jazz-like stuff which suits the display well. It was interesting to see the reactions from the male population as it drifted across the room - stampeding feet followed by sighs of disappointment at the lack of naked women. Never mind.
No, not the Ml but a series ol high speed, uncluttered without road works race courses Calling all PD libraries... ...and individuals with anything remotely worth my while having a peek at. If you want something released as PD. Or you're a library with stacks of hot new stuff that you haven't seen reviewed in these pages yet, why not drop me a line with a copy, full documentation and everything clearly labelled. I promise I'll at least look at your work.
From music to education, business to utilities - anything you feel deserved your shoving onto a floppy disk, lemme at it and I'll do the rest Address?

Macclesfield SK104NP Programmed by: The Terminus Team Available from: Pathfinder PD Disk No PG209 Why is it that many of PD’s classic games are based on old. Nostalgic software?
Perhaps it’s because they are relatively simple to program or that the wnters don’t have any original ideas of their own Or maybe, just maybe, it’s because games like Boulderdash hark from a day when gameplay came first and graphics second They seem to have an ageless playability that people never tire of and that can be continually enhanced and developed into better games. If you look at the average Mega Dnve chart these days, most of it will be taken up with platform clones with incredibly pretty graphics but gameplay that hasn't advanced since Manic Miner on the Spectrum.
Rebouldix from Terminus Team in Sweden could, at first glance, simply be shovelled off into a hole like so many games of this genre, filled in and engraved “Here lies another Boulderdash clone - rest in peace”.
Indeed, with the price tag for the full working copy being £18. You might think it would be a justified epitaph when you start Sort out oil financial worrln with thh lurely little earner to play. That's exactly how I felt but.. What makes this game so refreshing when compared to the usual carbon copies is that it's more of a sequel to First Star's classic than just a copy. As with the original, the player controls a little miner who digs around the screen collecting various glittering jewels while avoiding being crushed to death by rocks, traps and monsters of varying different sizes.
With this latest upgrade of an old idea though, there is much more to do. Each level on the demo disk presents a different mix of arcade skills and strategic planning.
Switches must be thrown, diamonds collected in the right order, difficult puzzles solved and many other touches.
The graphics are effective and clear and are quite varied for this kind of game.
The gameplay is very challenging and it will take some time for even the most experienced player to get through the more fiendish levels on the demo. If £18 still sounds like a M then check out the sample disk to see for yourself what a refreshing breath of fresh air this is. Recommended The Small Business Pack Programmed by: Various Available from: CVB-PD Disk No: U294 If You're thinking about starting a new company and are worried about the distinct lack of management programs or the prospect of coughing large sums of money up on single packages, then this offering from GVB-PD could be
the alternative you're looking for.
Chock-a-block with utilities of all sorts, this is an absolute bargain at only £6.
Every program has full documentation and can be printed through one of the 27 printer drivers available.
Utilities include Stockbroker for share management, expense and chequebook reports for bank account managing, a memo pad, a Secretary for efficient file and Workbench operation and many, many others - even a "nag" to hassle you I .

This is an impressive array of titles which cannot be given justice in such a small space - order them and check it out for yourself.
Assassins Games Programmed by: Various Available from: Assassins Disk No: 138 Assassins Carnes seem to push out untold amounts of games each year, some ranging from the simply abysmal to the very good (a bit like Psvgnosis really).
This latest collection is a perfect cross section with the three games offering etfimples of poor, average and good titles.
Starting at the bottom of the quality bucket, we have a computer version of air hockey. In the original, you hit a puck that floats millimetres above the table on a bed of air which is knocked back and forth between the two players until it lands in a goal; the same applies to this version.
The vast arsenal at your disposal, choosin the power of the shot, pressing fire am crossing your fingers.
The more hits made on the opposition the more money you make which can thd be spent at the armoury on projectile!
Such as single shots, dirt balls to creak cover for yourself, mega nukes and moun tain missiles which can e out huge chunk of landscape - there are 26 offensive am defeasive weapons in all.
The presentation and graphics are of I high standard - when the ground is hit i crumbles smoothly away leaving a gapinj drop.
An addictive and strategic title, thi Assassins 138 compilation is worth buying for this game alone.
Being a two-player game only, air hockey is works relatively well but is unlikely to raise blood pressure and adrenaline levels above those found in a corpse. The graphics are very basic and little effort has been put into the front end of the game making this the least recommended of the bunch.
Galactoid, the second title on the compilation, is a competent vertical shoot- 'em-up in Galaxians mould where enemy ships sweep onto the screen, gather in a formation and swoop down on you dropping missiles.
There are plenty of vary ing stages with different types of aliens and also special levels where a complete wave of marauding enemies must be wiped out to receive the maximum bonus.
Position the turret juit right and *tore a bullieyr with a mega nuke destroy the aliens with relative ease If you don't mind the repetitive nature of this genre and fancv a cheap blast then Galactoid will fill the gap until something better comes along.
The third and final instalment is Scorching Tanks, a great two to four player "hammer the hell out of each other" piece of software.
The premise is simple - up to four tanks are placed on a scrolling landscape and must destroy each other. This is achieved by aiming the turret at a certain angle, selecting the weapon you want to use from Finally, vour single turreted ship mav be upgraded into a two-gun mega blaster with the aid of a falling power up - this increases the size of your craft considerably, making it an easy target but helps to IUP 6240 NX1 2UP 0 1*0

¦GRAPHICS As promised in last month's AC, Lightwave returns for the long-awaited definitive review.
However, before the inside story can begin, a brief recap on the essentials is probably wise.
Before you can enjoy Lightwave you'll need the LightRave dongle and its accompanying control software. Once installed the dongle emulate* the presence of a Video Toaster - thereby duping Lightwave into operation.
Paul Austin puts Lightwave, the very latest Toaster-linked ra; tracing and animation system, under the spotlight and asks: Can this monster topple the big boys?
DOUBLE Alas as part of this deception vou're required to part with a nerve-jangling £399 for a piece of plastic that does nothing more than sit in the serial port.
Worse still, the aforesaid sum doesn't include the cost of Lightwave - which regulars will remember comes as part of the Video Toaster's 46 disk software compendium.
One of the few operating restrictions within Lightwave it the program I NTSC blat when It comes to available screen tlzes. At a retull lor PAL productions It s necessary to use lightwave i higher reiolutlom In combination with the program i limited region rendering.
In this example the full screen resolution It 1.280 x 800. At shown by the dotted grey bounding box, within Whkh fits the 7S6 x S80 - PAL compatible - limited region.
Unfortunately Lightwave i screen dimensions work In percentages rather than plxeli. So a little elementary maths Is required to determine the exact scale of the necessary region - but once set either stills or entire anlms will enjoy your designer dimensions.
E-mtnwrm 5T .. ¦ j| m *¦ irm ¦ r~rr£rr« Assuming vou've installed the essential emulator dongle, the next challenge is to add the Lightwave software to your system - the word challenge couldn't be more appropriate.
As detailed last month, installing the Toaster's software isn't exactly simple.
And unfortunately even after lengthy tinkering there still appears to he no way around certain limitations inherent in the Toaster's archaic installer.
Although it is possible to terminate installation prior to completion, it's not recommended unless you're particularly well versed in AmigaDQS. Worse still is the installer's unavoidable demand on storage space.
In short, if less than 66Mb of free space isn't found on an 8GMb+ hard disk, the installer simply refuses to install any Toaster software whatsoever.
Unfortunatelv due to its ridiculous design there's no way to avoid the aforementioned restrictions. In addition even when installation was followed to the letter, three out of the five machines tested with the LightRave Lightwave combination still locked up when attempting to run the software.
To be honest there's a chance this could be caused by faulty hardware on our part or perhaps the very early version of the LightRave on test, as opposed to a terminal problem between different machines. Having said that it would still be wise to secure a cast-iron monev-baek guarantee - just in case similar compatibility problems arise on your system... In addition, when running on an AGA machine its wise to use the Double NTSC monitor driver, thereby ensuring smooth operation in the various Lightwave modes - something which isn't mentioned by the LightRave manual After running LightRave and
entering Lightwave, you're taken directly to the program’s layout screen. At first the temptation is to stay there forever as it's here where all the exciting elements such as mapping, lighting, lens flares, bones, animation and morphing await.
When all of the above are combined ith approximately 170 supplied objects, the urge to set up camp permanently in the layout is almost too much to bear.
However if and when you do manage to drag yourself away and into the Modeler, you'll find a myriad of features which put Lightwave on a par with anything when it comes to object design.
POSTSCRIPT In fact this latest version of Lightwave has seen over 250 improvements - approximately 50 per cent of which appear in the Modeler. Notables include excellent PostScript text support. Boolean operations, lathes and extrudes, patches, twist, taper, shear, macros, Arexx, spline curves, drills and freehand sketching.
Due to available space this is only a taste of the high points which when added together with less glamorous features combine into arguably the most flexible and friendly design systems on the Amiga - possible exceptions being Imagine and Caligari. Even so, it must be said that Modeler does take some getting used too. This is primarily caused by the program s unique approach to object design. For example when building an object separate elements are created under user defined surface names - which are then imported as part of the overall object into layout where they can be selected
individually for surface attributes and mapping.
Although objects can have unlimited surfaces those surfaces are not individuals within a heirarchy. In fact single objects, no matter how complex, only have a single user defined axis - no internal groups allowed... As a result Modeler's 16 foreground and background layers provide an invaluable tool when designing objects which in time will combine in layout to form hierarchical jointed combinations.
If the temptation of setting permanent residence in the Layout scr was simply too much, the first quest vou'll ask is: "Why aren't all scend designing interfaces just like this one?” ] PERSPECTIVES Layout literally is that good. You edit from the Cartesian view, or in fad any one of the three perspectives. V addition when in the Cartesian mode yi can view the scene from either the cam GRAPHICS!
Ave Spectacular font Import, amlmatrd ripples, a built In procedural cloud texture lent hare and the best animation system In the business, what more could animators ask for M;W Herr we have one of the highlights of lightwave i animating repertoire, namely hunti Although Ihr phrase bones h perhaps ai good a tholtc ai any, II Is a little misleading In some wayi bonei might hove been better deuribed at muscles for r sample H we return to our arm example the object a tit joints would provide the Illation ol bonti whtrrai the bonti Ihtmttivet could emulate the muscles that lurmund them.
For example assuming the arm bent al the elbow a bone In the centre ol the upper arm tould be staled up to give the effect of on expanding mute It In short bonn are baikally an advanced form of freeform deformation, but In the coir of lightwave Ihe ability deform can be very precisely controlled within animations lo octually add boon to an object you iImply toad It Into the layout tcreen, add the required number of bone i define their ml poiltion and Kale and finally moke I hem oc tier Once active Ihe bone emlli a forte field which when altered by rotating Ot tiling directly affecti the object
area around It.
Ai a mult character animation It quite literally transformed far thate Inlrmfrd in more than endless ipate shout outs bonei orr manna from heaven On a tommenlal level the potential lor product Ion i In Ihr jll Micro liquid vein are endlru while onlmali and other organic lormi can finally catt off that robotic look and movement that often hllli the illusion of lift like all the major ray trocen. Lightwave hat Its fair share of mapping alternatives which Include procedural textures such as bump maps, ripples and fractal colours with approximately seven basic variations which can In turn be
customised by the user.
In addition to the procedural offerings you can also use brushmaps either as single frames or as pari of a sequence colour cycling Is optional To apply the brush you re given a choice between five mopping formats: planar cubic, cylindrical, spherical and projection.
Unfortunately bask mapping of Imoges Is Lightwave's only real disappointment. Iff not that the various effects don t work, but It must be said control over Imoges Isn 'I as comprehensive as It Is within programs like Imagine and Real JO.
It’s true there are some nke effects - such as density fades and wallpapering - but due to the fact only one map Is allowed per surface achieving photo realism can be tricky.
On the other side of the toln, Lightwave s variety of applications for procedural or Image maps leaves nothing to be desired. Literally every element of the surface attributes tan use a map as a filter luminosity, diffusion, specularity, reflectivity and transparency can be affected and of course that doesn t Include bump mapping and the excellent displacement maps.
Displacement maps are unique to Ughtwave and allow on image to be projected onto the surface of an object, at which point the Image will deform to object to reflect the luminosity ot the Image - Ideal for waving hags, facial Imprints, landscape generation or whatever else this immensely powerful function Inspires.
¦ TUTORIAL perspective or any one of the lights in the scene. Once in your chosen mode you can not onlv edit the objects but also the viewpoint.
Better still, animation can also share from the aforementioned flexible. For example, in addition to the camera position you can also render a box or wireframe anim from either a light or perspective - great for spotting accidental collisions.
Lights can be added with ease and their attributes defined in seconds, whether that be lens flare, colour, intensity, type and even the parameters for superfast shadow mapped light sources.
When it comes to rendering, there are a whole host of modes ranging from tiny lo-res previews fight up to print resolution creations employing reflections, refractions and shadows all combined with incredibly impressive anti-aliasing and shot with the camera of your choice.
Unfortunately direct comment on the quality of Lightwave’s tutorial is to say the least a little tricky - as the pre-production manual on hand displayed a notable lack of tutorial passages.
J f T l !
* i.a mi* This temporary lack of tutorial shouldn't in any way
reflect on the manual - which easily ranks alongside the best
in the business. The style is friendly and informative with
pointers to related info where necessary. To be honest the
quality of the manual is basically a reflection of the software
itself. As mentioned last month, Lightwave is easily the most
intuitive modelling and anim system on the market. As a conse*
quence ploughing through the manual is kept to a minimum - with
the occasional excursion required for help with the more
complex modelling and animation procedures.
The big question has to be: Is it worth the money? As ever this is a horses for course decision. For the enthusiast, realistically the answer has to be no.
Although Lightwave is a spectacular product it's simply too expensive for non-professionals - especially if they've already invested hard cash and more importantly huge amounts of timfl mastering .mother package.
In addition, Lightwave is only really 4 its best as an animation tool, so unlesd that's your primary interest othefl programs offer much better value foJ money. While on the subject of thfl opposition it's worth mentioning tNa recent slash in the price of Caligari to jiufl £99. Like Lightwave the program boasts tj similar heirarchical spline-based animation system and is ideal for flying] logo corporate applications.
Another alternative is of coursa lmagine3 - which you'll find elsewhere iaj this very issue. If you're already a proud] owner of Imagine2 the present upgrade!
Offer is simply impossible to ignore. In fact!
If the new version lives up to the rumours] it could completely dominate the market -I I'll reserve comment until I've seen it.
But even with excellent offers from the] opposition Lightwave is still incredibly] tempting- The design of the interface is] faultless and the available features pul] almost ever other package in the shade, j The only program that can offer] superior features such as gravitational] effects and collision detection is Real3P v2j
- but as you're probably aware this is l] very tricky package to
master. In short ifl you're a pro or semi-pro animator] who can
envisage making back yon investment. Lightwave and LightRave
art] simply too good to ignore.
Anim previews can be created at any time and from anywhere, and played back via the usual array of VCR controls. At you con Stt various frame rotes ore on hand and you also hare a choke between bones or Ml wireframes SYSTEM ESSENTIALS KIP I.•.-.. nli.il vri low - Recommended Here again Lightwave enhances Its friendly approach with on screen miniatures, simple colour cycling control and sequential Image set up. As surfaces are considered separate entitles when mapping Images themselves are also held In a list whkh In turn can he selected far mopping when designing surfaces• Although mapping
Individual surfaces Individually Is a perfectly acceptable approach. I must admit an option to map an entire object - Including all lb surfaces - would save some design time on occasion [ Hi res I I monitor 1 TTb| Accelerator 1 caaian 1 RAM The bottom line Product: Lightwave & LightRave Supplier: Ramiga International Tel: 0782 398840 Price: TBA Ease of use: 10 Implementation: 9 Value for money: 5 Overall: 8 Designed to bring you high performance at affordable prices ArYiiTek peripherals offer outstanding value-for-money.

- ite It's a hard Things are beginning to click now - the haze of
confusion that had gathered so swiftly on first booting up the
Amiga has now begun Ito dissipate e' er so slightly Admittedly,
you find yourself talking about window manipulation at dinner
parties and receive strange looks and questioning glances
before you can stop yourself from being, well, boring.
The manual is still like a wall though - jargon flies from page to page, leaving you miles behind wondering what the hell the hard drive is and why you don’t have to put any disks into it.
Your newly subscribed Amiga Computing lies unopened on the coffee table, a bundle of notes to the side of it.
Next tp them, a large box sits with the words Wordworth emblazoned upon it You need to load the word processor to type up that huge pile of written essays so picking up and flicking open that magazine, you read on... Window manipulation should cause you no problem now - if so, just dip into I the manual at the relevant pages and the r other remaining functions will become much clearer.
At the moment, we've been through the verv basics of Workbench use but Iwtill w hard irt| Instill n floppy dii*| Instill nr inter id printer fwts| Adam Phillips puts the hard drive under the microscope for this month’s dissection of your favourite personal computer instrllI Destination: jDH6:Uorduorth2 Check the destination box to make sure that Wordworth Is going to OHO what about actually creating something useful that has a practical purpose and end result? Open up the Wordworth package and take a look inside.
If you didn't buy the Desktop Dynamite package and therefore don’t have Wordworth then you’ll still find that many programs - especially utilities - use a similar installation routine to the one described below.
The hard drive, as mentioned last month, is far more reli able and much faster than a floppy disk Depending on the size you buy, a reasonable amount of software can be stored onto it.
Installing simply means taking information off the floppy disks and putting a copy of it into the hard drive. It always advisable to do this whenever you can so that the original disks don't have as much chance of becoming damaged through mishandling or dust finding its way into the disk and so on.
POWER PERILS Flick on the computer from the switch on the power pack. This must be done each time because if the lead is simply slapped into the back of the machine, there is a small chance of a power surge which could basically render the Amiga useless unless given extensive repairs.
The same rule applies to turning off the machine - if the power is yanked out of the back and the hard drive ticking over, there’s a good chance that the information could become Corrupted, lost and irretrievable. This may all sound a little ominous but it is alwavs best to be safe so that you don't find after spending four hours typing in a journal, it becomes useless because of a split second of carelessness. Take out the Systen Request__[ Please insert volune Wordworth in any drive Wordworth disks and find the one that’s labelled Wordworth Printer Fonts. Insert it into the disk drive
after Workbench has booted in. A large icon will appear in the top right-hand corner.
Double click on this with the left-hand mouse button and a window will open. Inside, there are a series of other icons. Don't worry about the other, simply move the pointer over to the one labelled Wordworth Install and double click.
You will be presented with four options. The first is to install onto hard disk. The second to install on floppy disk for extra back up protection, the third to select which printer you want to print out on and finally, to quit out of the program to the previous window.
Click on hard drive install and the computer will tell you where it is going to place Wordworth. Its preset destination should be DHO - if not, simply _ click at the beginning of the name in the destination bar, delete the old entry and type in DHO:.
- Once done, click Oft install and the program will ask you for
flu* main Wordworth disk.
Take out the PrinterFonts disk life and slip the requested one in. You'll find that the computer will ask for each disk in the pack, so simply follow the on-screen instructions. Installation does take time SO be patient.
If you're worried that it may not be working, simply look to see if the hard and floppy drive lights are flashing on and off in the top right-hand comer of the keyboard - this means they are activated.
READY TO CO Once the installation is complete, a message will appear telling you it's finished. Click on OK and the original list will appear again. Press on the Quit Installer option, take out the Thesaurus disk left in the floppy drive and reset the Amiga.
This is achieved by briefly pressing the two Amiga buttons on either side of the spacebar and the Control key, all at the same time Once reset, click on the DHO icon on the Workbench and a window will open.
Press on the W2 drawer and the next Wordworth drawer and - finally - you will be presented with a large picture icon with a W in it. Double click on this and the program will be booted up.

You lucky, lucky cheaters1 REGULARS • REGULARS • REGULARS There is probably no-one who has owned 0 home computer
who hasn't at tome time or other come into contact with David Brabvn's hoding cum action spoce campaign, Elite.
First released on the BBC Micro, its wire frame 3D sent all and sundry foaming at the mouth. As a goggle yed 15-year aU I spent month upon month locked away in a dimly lit room, with only my Human Leogue albums for company.
As keen as the next schoolboy to reach the dizzy heights of Elite, this reviewer soon got lost in space. Sacking the default character Commander Jameson. I assumed my oction hero type pseudonym, Wolf Flipside.
FRONTIER After an eternity lest in space it's finally here, the game that's set to launch a thousand shuttles and keep gamers up at night without any cryogenicallydnduced suspended animation Yes indeed, Wolf Flipside: Righter of wrongs, purveyor of purity, guru of goodness, federation freedom fighter and legion of liberation.
Well, il wosn't quite like that; there was the odd run-in with the law for smuggling the odd ton or 20 of Arcturan Mega weed, and a couple of errors in judgement due to mistakes in identifying nice, ripe, juicy traders carrying priceless corgo for nasty roughneck good for nothing pirates.
As the incomparable Wolf, I hod many excit ing ond dangerous adventures (well, kind of for a teenager ploying on a home computer). In foci there's one particular incident that I remember with some clarity.
We'd been travelling for over 20 days, the hyperspace jump from Quaxxan to Zaonce was some jaunt, and toik about dull. All around the half-shadowed interior of my beat-up Cobra, beer cans lay redundant reflecting the lights of the ship's auto pilot.
In a half drunken stupor I glanced ocross at the long range scanners, nothing but asteroids for entertainment, ond to be quite fronk the novelty of zoppmg lumps of rock hod long since dried up.
Another turn of the head ond I'm gazing at the Gronk, my ever-faithful companion. He, lies snoring his little furry snout off, occasionally catching an itch up his hairy torso with o dozy daw.
I begin to snooze myscH, and am just begin ning to fantasise about a night on Rigel 5 wilh the four-breasted love sirens when I hear the shrill sound of the scanner alarm, With a start I jump to my feet spilling beer, peanuts ond ash everywhere. Cursing my luck, the Gronk sends a proboscis from his snout looping out towards the scanner, seconds later my stomach drops as an ominous image materialises on the main screen.
"By the pies of the Ploeides, it’s a Thargoid invasion ship!" I gasped.
The Gronk gronked (on his planet, gronking wind in a different colour expresses an emotion| purple wind everywhere, as if in some way summing up the horror of the impending situation.
As the rank air cleared around me, an even bigger stinker was dropped; a Thargoid missile was raking its way through the blackness of wytchspoce towards the ship.
In on instant the projectile hod found its lock on my frogile hull, in response I hammered on my ECM (Electronic Counter Measure) and initiated my rear thrusters.
The missile exploded and rocked my craft, just as the reor thrusters initiated themselves. As we shot back the ship centred ond put four bolts of military loser into the Thargoid s belly.
The inky void illuminated suddenly os the warship's shields failed and lOOmw of loser burned into its weak underbelly, exploding it into o million frogments of space debris.
The action over, I cracked open another "tinny* on Gronk's beak and lay back in my sect, content in the knowledge that Wolf Flipside would rule the space lones for another evening.
The true octuolity of the events however, wos somewhat different. The reality of the situation was a stuffed teddy antealer (please don't ask why anyone should envisage this particular species of mammal should make o nice cuddly toy) and myself, in my bedroom with the curtains shut gazing at a BBC computer, surrounded by empty tins of pop - but such is the imagination of a 13-year old. It wasn’t long after that, having Weh-heh, look at tkc pretty ColoUK » you drop out of a light speed jump reoched a rating of Elite, that my onti-grav booh were hung up. But, os they say in movies, tfw was then
and this is now.
After what seems like a lifetime of self-inflictec solitary confinement, Mr Braben is back with thr long-awaited Elite 2: Frontier.
While in this self-imposed imprisonment many rumours floated around os to what would eventuolly be in Elite 2. For instance there wos talk of planet landings and exploding stars While some of the reports were somewhat exog gcroted, on the most part speculation has mater alised into truth.
The most striking thing obout Elite that you notice almost immediately is that it has no plor At least no plot in the traditional sense thot gomes generally follow.
DECEASED The only background relevant to you is thot you've been left a paltry sum of cash and a mid die of-the-launch-pad type space ship by your recently deceased grandfather (didn't mean le sound ungrateful - hanest pops), in a huge galaxy where you con basically do anything.
When you first boot up Elite 2 it's quite daunt ing because you just don't know where to start To tell you it's a vast game area really is on understatement.
In the original Elite there were eight galaxies in Elite 2 there's just the one. However, it's os accurate to the genuine article os amateur astronomer Mr Braben could render it, ond con tains 200, 000, 000, 000 (11 zerasl stars with same 30,000 inhabited planets.
So you can immediately gather that to get anywhere of any status in the gome is going to take a little bit more effort thon the usual climb e few ladders ond blast a few baddies malorkey.
After you've come to reolise your own petty insignificance within this massive arena, the next task is fo decide what on earth you're going to make of yourself.
In the original you reochcd the tap notch through o combination of fighting, clever trading and maybe a touch of under-the-counter smuggling.
Well in the sequel those elements hove been retained, ond you could easily play it in the somr manner, but would be missing a great deol of the M » fi

W»?rf ir,£rnV..T* r Uun I i:j frsT lh lit*? £ 812 »jtei D tkI link you're successful you II soon be on contract killing missions or sent to destroy an enemy spoce station Obviously tbe stock morket aspect of Elite is still in existence. However, fundamental cbonges have taken place since the heody days of the 80s. For one the prices of eoch location ore no longer stalk.
Whot this means is that because prices behgve like a reol stack morket, you could actually sit at one port buying ond selling commodities for profit, without actually blasting off anywhere.
DRAMATIC The Other prpbobly immediote difference to the trading aspect of the game is that the rooge of products hos increased dramatically.
The same is true of equipment thot con be bought from the stations around the galaxies.
For instance, if you wonted to become a spoce taxi then you'd have to purchase passenger cobins.
Ygg can also upgrade just obout everything to the nth degree. From engines to lasers and mis- sties the list is almost endless. It's even possible to purchase something called o Hyperspace Cloud Anofyser which checks where a ship has gone once it's in hyper spoce.
But, I've left the best till last, because in Frontier you con octuaUy upgrade your ship. No longer do you have to stick with the Cobra, and there ore over 30 to choose from.
The choice really is yours - you con stick to nimble ocrobatk combat single seoters or get yourself something o little more substantial like the 2,500 tonne Panther (Volvo of the future! For extensive trodmg.
So you can see there's on obsolute crater fuH of things you can do in Frontier, but the question that’s positively bursting to escope is: What does it play like?
When you first start controlling Frontier it'll feel very alien ond different to the Elite you knew so well of yesleryear. For one, the simulation of space travel has been mode much more realistic, with zero gravity ond directional energy having a lot more relevance than in the original.
This at first is off-putting ond somewhat confusing, but don't be disillusioned by it. It doesn't take long before you get into the swing of flight or the icon control system employed for accessing charts and equipment. In fact, it soon becomes a very logical system which feels second nature.
Ifs incredibly difficult to describe what ploying Frontier is actually like once you've become AMIGA. From the huge space wheels fo the domed cities on the plonet surfoces, it's oil there in beautiful light-sourced fechnkdoured detail One of the most visually impressive aspects fo Frontier is that you con be out in the depths of vocuous space pointing your ship at a prick of light some six light years away. Then fly at it and watch it grow - you might eventually end up of the window of some complex on the surfoce of the plonet.
ASTRONOMICAL Everything being astronomicoliy correct, you con watch nightfall from one of the moons of Saturn or orbit Jupiter and follow the red spot.
For a gome to handle so much, there has to be some pitfall. It hos to be said that on on A500 machine the update is a rather slow affair and behoves like o bit of o lome mule.
However, detail levels can be turned down, and tbis does speed tbe general pace of the game up.
Frontier is an incredibly difficult title to brocket. There are mony different styles of gome in it, and many different ways in which you con approoch it.
A product that bums brighter ond with a grecta mognifude than any other product has for mar. a year, ond you'll love it.

He's passed all his exams and pipped the moustachioed David Copperfiefo *o the number one spot despite bis Magic Boy puts you in the unlikely control of on apprentice wizard with the equally unlikely name of Hewlett Now little Hewlett is a student at sorcery school and this is the fiat thing that needs oddressing.

marouding menagerie and return them to their environment av
nah rol n the cellar As Hewlett your search will take you
through four moin worlds They consist of Sand Land, Wet World,
Plastic Ploce and Future Zone, and strangely enough they all
really do speak for themselves when it comes to whot kind of
environment they we.
Now, each world is mode up of 16 levels. This might shatter the illusion of the plot somewhat, but then ogam we're talking about a platform pussier ond not real life. As you journey around the worlds you ore asked to complete an initial eight levels. Once you've done so when you visit for the second time you explore a second set of eight To access any of the levels you simply highlight them on the compass screen which clever clogs Hewlett carries around with him Basically control of ihe play is fair ly simple and straightforward. All the normgl joystick movements push Hewlett in the relevant
directi ons and pressing the Fire button shoots his love wand - they don't call him Magic Boy for nothing you know.
Hewlett's wand has o range of power ups which lengthen, strengthen or spray his shot wider and all help slun the animals.
Once they are stunned simply moving the would be wizard into ihe stunned creatures results in them being bogged up in Hewlett's mogical sock and hence recaptured.
As usual in this form of zap-puzzle-platform scenario there are a number of things which are helpful ond some which are o pain in the magic circle.
For one, there are tokens to colled which when completed grant you extra lives On the downside their aro dissolving platforms, sticky blocks, toxic pools ond trap squares to be aware of.
Graphically, Magic Bay is very sweet and sugary. With his blonde hair sickly smile and red cape Magic Boy is a dead certainty for o cutesy award, This doesn't say o lot for his big magic wand pretensions, but his snug tunic (which could easily pass as o skirt) does keep it firmly lodged in the right place.
On a more serious note, both the scrolling and animation ore really rather nice on Mog»c Bay and despite my allegations directed towards his manliness the whole fed of the produd right.
Playwise, I’ve never been g great fan of plotformers of any kind, but I do acknowledge that they have a massive following among gamers.
I also have to confess that I octually enjoyed playing Mogic Boy, The control seemed to respond really well ond the puzzle aspect of the game mode play a lot of fun.
With 64 levels and 32 bonus levels to explore there's a great deal to do in Mogic Boy. It's a very Ob, it's clammy in here friendly and easy to ploy title with a lot to offer platform lovers ft sounds good, plays well and it's so annoyingly cute you almost want to retch. Plus, the first few thousand copies feature a free copy of the Cool Croc Twins What more do you want from o game?

Kingmaker accurately reflects the changes in strengths of the factions os they ore decimated by bottles, plagues and failed ransom attempts, or have new honours bestowed on nobles with attached troops ond cos- lies US Gold reckon that most people lose interest in other strategy titles because their artificial intelligence programming is weak, meaning that the player con learn the 'perfect' strategy Kingmaker is different from its rivgls because there is no such thing os a perfect strategy. As a general rule, board games don't translate to the home computers very well For starters you lack
the human interaction which makes them so enjoyable Secondly, there isn't o lot more o computer gome can do iwt the boord game can't and the board game will probably cost you a lot less to buy.
Kingmaker, fortunately, features o lot of features that wouldn't be possible to achieve with a boord gome, such os tochcd combat ond cinematic odion sequences. Insteod of a battle being lost on fse tom of a cord, you can now fight and decide the bottle for yourself, The computer’s artificfal intelligence hoi I been carefully designed ond tries to recreate human thought processes as best as it can. Ond so can read favourably to on ever-changing tactical and sir air I gk sitoation.
A nice little touch is the m-game help feature. j important objective of the computer game was to] make the gome accessible to novice strategy game players and this was achieved via a help or "chrorr I cfe* system which prompts players at key points is] the game with suggestions on strategy ond toctia This can be altered to different levels depending ai whether you're an expert or a beginner.
It also means you can practically chuck fhol weighty monuol in the bin, but it cioes contain ol wealth of historical information ond sets the atmosphere ond scene, os well os more detailed instno ] tons on how to ploy the game Control of Kingmaker is via the mouse with o I completely intuitive icon system that gives you ear I occess to all of the gome functions. As mentioned before, the gome is played on a digitised mop d the UK using ‘’counters'’ represented by the 100 per cent accurate heraldic shields of the historicdj nobles.
Several of the towns and cities hove lures of the historical castles or |__ fence in the 15th century. Ail this detail is very | impressive and giv» pgood feel to the game Before you head off nMon, a menu asks ywl to select the number of faeMflttLJo 5) you foce ¦ the game The more factions tt fcwA orj trcJs.

Condusion
time it is, then.
I must hold up my hands and admit that Kingmaker is a domn fine strategy game, myself engrossed and determined to soe through to the end whether I won or lost.
The graphics for the main part are lair but that's only because they were translated from board game. The introduction of the digitised sere livens dsings up o bit and the battles are well anin ed, if not a bit slow There are also o few choice animahons slapped there for good measure; the execution scene good example. The sound is sparse, but os the I game dislincdy lacked noise I shouldn't grumble much.
The only real complaint I have is fad isat the] computer does take rather a long time to decide what to do next. This does give you the ideal chance to plan your next moves, but after a while it gets on your nerves.
Kingmaker impressed me and coming from someone who is not overly fond of strategy that can only be a good thing for strategy fanatics, who ore gang to love it. Obviously it's not going to appeol to everyone, but if war strategy is your thang then you'll more lhan hoppy with Kingmaker.

Kingmaker is relatively simple to use and control, but you'll have to spend many a long hour at your monitor screen before you'll be able to master it.
On my first go I played on the easiest level and monoged to beat the computer (hey there's skill for you), but on the harder levels I was like a fish out of water This is perhcps the best way to go about playing cause if you leap in at the deep end vou lend to stumble your way through and in turn learn about how to play os you progress. There is always the Help option available and the computer opponent tends to be fairly slow, so it won't defeat you in a tvf compete ogainsf you.
As mentioned previously, to win ot the gome you eurf control the last royol he»r. To ochieve this you nust capture and control an heir, eliminate all

Planning the risk-free capture of on heir is one of tv most important parts of the game’s opening period. Your faction's opening dispositions ond moves tfould be geared primarily towards the capture of at «at one royal heir.
VARIABLES Choosing the right one is o question of balancing 3 number of variables How dose are the forces of opposing factions? How well guarded is the heir?

January 1994 F-117A Stealth Fighter When you mink of flight simulations, the first company that springs to mind is MicroProse, purveyors of such quality products as Knights of the Sky, P-15 Strike Eogle, F-19 Steolth |F-117A's forerunner) ond the legendary Gunship.
More recentfy, Dogfight and the highly popular Gunship 2000 hove groced the shelves, ond indeed the top of the charts of your local software emporium.
When you glance at that list if mokes fairly impressive reoding. In foct, the only two products thot have come out of the MicroProse stable and gone slightly lame on take-off were the over- ambitious Flying Fortress and the underrated WWI flight strategy Ancient Art of War.
It seems that for quite a while now MicroProse have churned out nothing but extravoganzas in the air, and they appear to have approached every conceivable flight simulation feasible.
What could they possibly simulate this time?
They've done them all - modern warfare in the skies, old*style dogfighting, fighter simulations, bomber simulations - the lot.
Whot could be next? After several hours of rocking my brain, thinking of every conceivable type of military and commercial jet known to mankind, I finally hit on what it was that MicroProse were going to simulate this time around.
Yes indeedy folks, MicroProse ore proud to present their latest true-to-life flight of fantasy - Codename Flying Rat: Pigeon Simulator.
MicroProse are guaranteeing that Pigeon' will be able to totally accurately replicate the real McCoy. It'll come equipped with a modem chip- seeking beak, one gammy leg, people-finding guided excretion missiles ond completely knackered wings (I'm not sure they all hove, but they do where I live).
Beginning as o young chick, you'll start at the flight egg-tademy where you'll learn flight theory. From there it's on to serious missions as a rookie.
Starting on single missions you'll begin os o young flying learner. You'R be set such tasks as basic bock garden take-off and landing manoeuvres, moving on to lond-on-the-garden-fence stunts with enemy ginger Toms crawling all over the area.
Pass these bosk tests and you'll be sent into action in one of the many town centre zones. Fly dangerous bombing missions around national monuments such os Trofolgar Square, using your loser-guided excretion missiles to seek out freshly coiffured hair.
Avoid being squashed by the traffic as you The main roster room or have I just got back to my Magaluf hotel foyer three sheets to the wind?
The mission briefiut Hon. K also makes - F- waddle around roodsides in on attempt at being the dumbest creature on two legs.
Fly life-lhreotening sorties into political hotspots around the world. Flop your woy into the Far East and avoid ending up as Bombay Duck.
Enjoy the carnal pleasures of reproduction and push your flight skills to the limit. Flap carefully as you attempt the highly risky mid-airlink-up with the hen of your choke.
Plus, in true MicroPros? Fashion, aB the oction can be viewed from o multitude of angles. Some of the most interesting ore the external shots, especially the pigeon s bombsight view.
Actually, imogine my surprise when their new product turned out to be not a pigeon simulator, but in foct F-117A Steolth Fighter. Envisage my a helicopter IIS BOB QMS l-l-IM-l-l'I'l-l-flM-l-l-!-!- A 1 AirNSe flt FyMfftt] • SO-2? O' wiir •

'iBgfcn-Tj immediate disappointment at finding out th: there
would be no emu, duck or owl data disk just onother oeroplane
However, the Steolth Fighter or Nightha* (sounds like one of the Glodiators) is no ordincr plane. During the Gulf War it proved it wc entirely worth the massive investment by its mar ufocturer, Lockheed.
Although there were only a handful of th*- involved, within hours of the first day of war the hod completely crippled the Iraqi air defence ne* work.
Having flown invisibly through hundreds a miles of electronk enemy eyes the F-117As hoc paved the way for the rest of the coalition ar force and given the allies almost total o supremacy.
With this type of success it now comes os rc surprise thot MicroProse opted for Steolth c opposed to the pigeon simulator.
As is usual with MicroProse products, SteaP comes with a manual absolutely crammed to rafters witb information about the plane, -b equipment ond armament.
After this spurious form of training it’s time t embark, and march in hob-noiled boots down u the mom roster room.
The first thing to say b that F-117A is not one but two simulators in one. The main MicroPros' simulator has a bios towards oction, combat one missions.
Conversely, the Lockheed version is muc- truer to reality, but features less dogfightinc However, on both versions you con toggi- through and odjust everything from the grouoc detail to the skill of the enemy.
Once you hove decided whether to take rec ism or oction, you con take o stroll into the con mending offker's offke (having knocked first ai course) ond choose a theatre to operate within.
Now, the interesting thing obout F-117A that unlike most sims, it hos different dimensior to its level of conflict. You con operate m a cok wor stole or go for full-blooded, oll-ovt corw tional warfare.
Whot this means is thot there ore for mow F-117A Stealth Fighter Missile P nges EneHy Troops Select All Clear AM Mission Brief Select Ueapons Decline Mission Here’s the bit when yee screech away from the lights ahead of the Capri with yoar jached-op suspension and stereo blaring ¦rtf helpful for informa- «went when framed mission types at your disposal. For example, in a cold war scenorio you will be sent on more surveillance missions where the emphasis is on discretion.
You con also select more specific aspects to the mission, like whether it is on air-to-oir dogfight Or a target strike mission.
Aj you've olreody probably gathered, Stealth has a million and one options to choose from, and every conceivable setting to place yourself in.
There isn't really spoce to go through all of the choices ovailable, but rest assured you have every type of rocket, missile and munition to pander over.
We've been assured that this time the interior of the Stealth is as accurate as can be ochievcd on a computer screen. This is because the programmers actually got the opportunity to climb aboard the real McCoy and study it at close range.
Pioywise, F-l 17A has ofl the features you've come to expect from MicroProse. Internally oil of the advanced technologies you'd expect are included on Stealth. Il has stale of the art HUDs, rodars and armament facilities for you to play with and prodise on.
To fly successfully you're going to need all your flight sim skills. While the Nighthawk hos all the up-to-the-minute technology, its realism and the amount of buttons you hove to operate make it a lough little cookie to handle.
During the missions the action comes thick and fast, with you up against some of the top strike aircraft in the world like the dreaded Mfc-W.
Second time around for MicroProse with the Stealth Fighter, the big question being: is it still healthy to be stealthy?
The graphical world of the Stealth fighter is vast, detailed and very cleverly blended into the missions. For example, when your mission brief is la destroy the palatial residence of Saddam Hussein, you get a full view of Boghdod as you fly towords it.
On all machines the graphics are pretty slick and well defined. While Stealth obviously performs a lot quicker an the A1200, the standard AMIGA harxfles it pretty well This is no mean feot os the amount of ground detail is high.
There are some really nice touches within F- U7A that worm you towords it, especially the attention to detail. For instance, when flying in one of the oil rich nations, don't be surprised to see rigs scattered left, right ond centre.
Also, on night missions you'll see on extremely picturesque moan and star-filled sky, which make for that little bit more realism.
Over the yeors there's been a whole squadron of flight sims, some good, some bad and some indifferent. Stealth Fighter definitely comes under the heoding of good, becouse it contains that little bit extra.
Graphically the engine is reminiscent of Gunship 2000, which con't ever be a bod thing.
The difference is that Stealth is a more polished product.
On a personal level, I prefer Gunship 2000, but that really is a slightly unfair comparison os it is the top sim on the AMIGA. For Stealth to have even have entered the same runway as GS 2000 is saying a lot.
Stealth Fighter really is a quality product, ond will thrill jet flight sim enthusiasts all over the globe. I suggest that all you budding fighter pilots don your cloak and stealthily step out ta buy this excellent flight simulation.

Alien Breed is still one of my favourite games ever, not least becouse it was a sneaky interactive rip-off of the film. Aliens, by James Cameron. One thing that was consistently present in the Rm was atmosphere, and luckily the film version did transmit successfully to the screen.
The original Teom 17 blaster featured two marines colled Johnson and Stone who ventured forth into a station called ISRC-4 which contained an Alien Breed. Johnson and Stone wandered through six massive and hugely challenging levels fighting aliens with all guns blazing.
Alien Breed was probably the first product to really set the Team 17 success ball rolling and proved to be an immensely popular with the games buying public.

I'm also at odds to discover how one goes about arranging on inter galactic bout of fisti cuffs, but ours is not to reason why. Just hassle Team 17 for not being bothered to worry about the plot and to have concentrated on first-rate ploy instead (woh, hold your horses and tell 'em the plot -ed).
Anyway, take it for granted that Dan ond Junior somehow manage to get through lo oil the inter galactic punters vio ihe international operator and set up the competition.
After that they both embark on a "my body is a temple* routine. Using the infamous Bulfworker ond Chodes Alios body map, they moke a sleody return to their dynomk best.
With the competition set up the rest is down to you bunch or joystick-waggling punters.
Incidentally, o few of the focb I've taken the liberty of including you may not find detailed in Teom Body Blows Galactic reolly differ playwise, bul does (eolure extro colours on ihe bockdrops. Better quolity music ond scupd-up sound effects.
All of the oction lakes place over six different plowts Each ploflftt is tfie Host to two different champions. Each different planet, opart from Eorth, has an environment which reflects the attributes of hose inhabitants.
Far example, the planet Titanica is the most technologically advanced, ond the two guardians of the planet ore Tekno ond lozar Now, there are a variety of ways to ploy Galactic. In one-player mode, having chosen the character that takes your fancy, you journey from world to world in an attempt to defeat eoch computer-controlled character.
In fwoployer mode you both choose a character ond select o * juuun planet to fight it out. You can even hot things up to a higher temperature by selecting the same character, so you both have exoctfy the some moves.
There's also o tournament mode which allows o greater number of your motes to battle it out in o league affair You can also change the amount of time you compete for, the number of rounds you fight for and the rather interesting Mercy option.
In Mercy mode your opponent will leave you done if you take o big shot on the chin and need o breather On the contrary, leaving Mercy off means that when you’re down ond winded your opponent will come steaming in for rfse kill.
On the charocter front, there's o vory interesting selection for you lo get to grips with. Rather than the normal selection of martial arts experts and kick-boxing freaks, in BB Golactic the choice is much more varied.
Of course, Dan and Junior ore versed in these particular skills, but the other characters are different altogether There are robots, dinosaurs, puppets and oil forms of dementds.
¦k However, the most amazing character in Galactic must be the stunning . Kai Ti. This woman must surely be the most perfectly pert set of pixels I hove ever seen on a home computer. Not only is she beautiful, but she is also as deadly as a female black widow, with some absolutely devastating moves.
Specking of moves, eoch charocter comes equipped with 20 dif- f lerent moves, blocks and dom- age-inflicting blows. These are arrived Ot through a variety of joystick movements ond button presses.
Eoch character's moves have been des*gned to suit the particular personality. Some are more obvious than others; for example, Tekno the robot hos such things os thrusters ond missiles, whereas inferno can tumble into a heatspin or throw o fireball at you.
It grieves me in some ways lo say thol BB Galoctic is brilliant. The first reason is that iYs getting slightly annoying that the 17's keep on churning out benchmark products without a slip-up atoll.
Secondly I've olwoys been in a slight turmoil wilh gomes that are so blotantfy physically violent.
It's not that I don't oppreciate the foct that most games feature the player inflicting some form of punishment on something, even in the cutesy titles.
It's just that in the beat 'em up category this is taken lo the nth degree However, for all the moralising it hos to be soid thol Body Blows Galoctic is brilliant. The graphics ore smooth ond beautifully executed, the sound effects beefy, and most importontly the play is compulsively oddictive.
The one-player option is pretty good fun, as you take on the might of the computer However this pales into the shade in companson to the two- player option It's brilliant fun watching a friend take on almighty blow to the skull os you sock him between the teeth with your spec id weapon Quite honest- Bang!Junior 9 9 WrtrtAr. Strikes another blow for free* dom, democracy and err... It Forgot Infomo, I should like to get hot with Kai-Ti rtfu-u Soy! Big Trouble in Little China in a kind of watery way ly, Body Blows Goloctic is the best beot-'em-vp ever to be inserted into the drive ol on AMIGA.
OK, so its older brother Body Blows, and IK+ were both pretty hoi, but Body Blows Goladic lakes the title.

Publisher ? Electronic Arts Developer ? Dinamic Price ? S23 99 HD install No Size ? 1 meg In the first of a two-part feature, Gamer talks to seme of Millennium's top bods and takes a look at Pinkie, a new platfermer set to make heads turn INTO THE NEXT Michael Hayward • managing director How ond why did Millennium first siart up in business?
Millennium started up four and a half years ago through a management buyout of the enteitainment division of logotron lid, on educational software company.
The three principal directors of the company, Ion Saunter, Henry Elliot ond myself were excited obout the prospects in the computer and vsdeo games industry. This decision hos proved to be hord work, great fun and profitable for us all ond we wouldn't wont to do onything efse.
CW? Whof were the early dap lie when competing with industry giants such os Ocean, US Gold and Psygnosis?
We hove never been concerned with the competition ond whot they ore doing. If we were we would not be obfe lo produce original gomes such os Pond, Pinkie, Diggers, brutal Sports etc. GameR Gomes-wise, whot wos the big breakthrough for Millennium?
Jomes Pond 2 wos the big break that we needed. II has now sold over one million copies on ol formats ond gave us the confidence to go on to produce the offenngs that we have lined up for 94 ond beyond.
GameR With what do you attribute to the popularity of the Jomes Pond senes of gomes?
Everyone knows whot o secret ogent is about so it was easy for people to relats to Pond OS 0 choroctw, Ht is well animated - porliculorly in Pond 3 where there ore over 130 onimotion frames, this brings out ihe odoptabili- ly of Pond ond allows us to participate in his efforts ond humour os a super hero.
I think that it is important tho* Pond ofwoys hos o special property - in Pond 2 he could stretch using his extendosuit ond wos able to run fast, in Pond 3 he can wok upside-down run twice as fast ond uses many novel vehicles. This odds to his appeal as the mol, brave ogent working ogoinst seemingly impossible odds.
Gamer Millennium wos the first company to enter into the CD32 morket. What was the reason behind this move?
We think lhat the AMIGA morket is essenhd to the growth of the computer ond video gomes industry. Because there b such o good strong base of AMIGAs in die UK we have o strong culture of very obfe programmers. That b one of ihe reasons that the UK is prominent in the world of software development.
The CD32 is a well received development from Commodore - the hardware is powerful ond the added CD focity ollows us os developers to explore new ways of delivering our tides to the morketploce. I do not know whether CD technology wil become the standard os ihe excess limes of the gome cartridge is much quicker thon ony known CD technology ot the moment ond speed is on essential part of gome development.
GameR How risky is ilh move into new markets Suih OS ihe new CD platform?
fs only risky if you do not know what you are doing, li would be easy to get corned owoy ond invest in live action, model building ond cell onimo- hon in the belief that thb were where the futore lies. We hove opted to invest in sound, animation ond rendered graphics. This involves a great deal more cost, but os we are only concentrating on these areas we have a smaller learning curve than by trying to do everything. We ore currently investing in some state-of'the-ort rendering workstations which w3 improve Out productivity tenfold in the coming year on our rendering projects.
Are you surprised that other companies hoven't got their products out on the CD32 yet?
No. There ore so many platforms in the morketploce ot the moment with new systems to be introduced in 94 and 95. In order to be successful it is “Me want to be a world leader in entertainment software development - just watch this space!”
- Michael Hayward, Millennium MD important to concentrate on whot
you con cope with ot ony one time. We hove been writing "legal"
operating system code lor ihe new Amiga chip set ond it wos not
o big deol to move onto the CD32.
Other publishers who wrote stroight to the Amiga hordwore hove obviously experienced o new learning curve so naturally it hos token them some time to get up to speed with CD32.
Gamer How do you rote the standard of your competitors?
The competition b getting tougher all the time, there ore so many good gomes now being produced it robes the stokes every lime we develop o new litfe. This is good for our customers ond for the industry as o whole.
Gamer What is the future of computer gaming?
The next two yeors ore going to be very interesting. There ore several new hardware platforms slated, Sega Saturn, Nintendo 64-bit, Sony CO, 3DQ ond o new and more powerful CD32.
The added power of the new systems wJ allow us to produce bigger ond better gomes designed for a brooder audience. I soy this as I assume that the troditionol market will extend from the bedroom to the Sving room ond more people in eoch household will become interested in what we have to offer.
One thing that b important to keep in mind though is good old-fashioned gameploy. H is all too easy lo produce some floshy visual effects with ihtse new hardwore platforms ond to forget whot the goming experience is all obout.
Gamer Where ond how do Millennium see themselves involved in lhat future?
We wont to be a world leader in entertainment software development. We ore investing heavily in our development deportment and hove some truly omaiing products in dmfepment - just watch this spoce!
GaheR Whot is your philosophy os regards product placement ond marketing?
I b important for our trade customers to know lhat Millennium b o good label that produces high quality products which sel. So at lhat level it b important for us to hove o good profife.
As for os our customers ore concerned the label is df Secondary importance - the products themselves ond our characters ore the heroes. Does it moke ony difference to someone who wants to buy the latest Michoel Jockson album whot the record label is?
It is wry important that Jomes Pond, Pinkie, Btvtal Sports Football ond other Millennium brands have o high profile ond that our customers know who they are and what they stand for. We spend o great deal of time ond effort to promote our tides ond as ihe morket develops this investment becomes greater.
GamR Whot is your favourite Millennium gome and why?
My favourite has to be Jomes Pond 3. Two yews in the making it b very different to both of the previous gomes. AI of the code, mops ond graphics ore new. In Pond 3 we set out to produce the ultimate platform gome.
There ore over 100 mossive levels with over 65 enemies. The story line is essential to the gome with dialogue boxes oppeoring at key moments to give the ployer feedbock ond dues. Pond is bigger, he hos o girlfriend Angelfish ond o new sidekick - Finnius. There ore tterolfy hundreds of secret rooms, chambers ond blocks lo discover.
There ore several ways lo complete the game so the ployer will not hove to mop his way through !«*] in a tneor foshion. Even our gome testers who hod been ploying the game day in and day out for weeks were consistently discovering new features. It is a game that you con keep coming bock to for more ond more.
GmmR Why do you rfu'nk thot James Pond and Robocod sold so well ocross oB Iht computer comale formats?'' He hot become g legend The f»r * gome wps cleverly marketed ond did not overexpose James Pood. The gomes always relied upon the gameplay ond not Ihe chorocter. Anybody con hot out “cutesy' characters that ore running on a standard platform engine. Each James Pond release has offered tremendous value for money ond intense playability.
G«wR James Pond is probably one of the oldest ond best-bred AMIGA characters. Why do you think he is so popular?
He is so popular beccuse he gave the AMIGA o chorocter tbot owners could coll their own. The games have gone through several facelifts for owners cf different hardware, far example, the At 200 version of Robocod wos significantly enhanced to show off the equipment, The CD32 version included animation and hod an interactive boob.
James Pond hos always offered great value for money an the Amiga that console players would not get.
How wdl James Pond 3 be different from the first two gomes?
JP3 is radically different. It follows on from Robocod through the use of cel animation ond takes Pond to the moon. Dr Maybe is mining the plonet for (t» rich dairy pradvct reserves and hos kidnapped two F.I.5.H. agents.
The main sprite is so much more animated and con run foster than any other game character, punch, pick objects up ond throw them, run upside down and use the mony new weird pick ups in o game with aver 100 levels.
It is huge ond will take most ployers ot leas* o couple of weeks to complete. We are also giving owners the F.I.S.Hpock free of charge. Thot olone is worth £9,99. , Ihe animation used for the CD32 releose of Robocod wos very impressive. WiD we be seeing more of this in Pond 3?
Yes. The animation is a great link between Robocod and JP3 and wi appear on the CD32 version to coincide with the release of Commodore's FMV (Full Motion Video! Cord.
6a**R How do you see the Amiga market progressing? WM CD technology sJowfy become the standard platform for gomes?
I used to work in the video industry ond it doesn't take o rocket scientist to work out that, being a lineor format, video does not allow you to skip around programmes ond interact with it.
The mqjor Hollywood studios ore all developing CD products ond I will put my neck on the line and say that it won't be too long before you will be able to buy the film, the book, the soundtrack ond the gome oil on one formal ond ployed through one mochine. CD offers us, os devtfopers, so much more flexibility. We ore developing projects currently that will be o mix of animation, film and computer-generated graphics gnnng players on amazing amount of gameplay that floppy formats ond cartridges cannot offer.
How hard or my is it to model o chorocter like James Pond?
Marketing James Pond is olways slightly difficult becouse he's never around when you wont him. Obviously, the foct thot every gome is better than ihe previous one helps bccouse people know thot he is dependable and offers great entertainment, However, we never rest on our laurels ond ore olwoys working on the profile. We hove ta bear thot in mind when we license him ta different formats that companies such os Ocean ond Electronic Arts are buying a reputation os weH as o great gome.
"...there is a bright shiny four-inch wide and disc-like future for us all."
- Keith Smith, Millennium PR manager Do you think that Pond 3 wdl
be a bigger seller thon the incredibly popular Robocod?
We certainly hope so! There is no reason why not. Robocod hos now been licensed on 14 hardware platforms ond hos posted the one million unit mark. If Robocod con do if, Operation Starfish wil.
Mr Mogoo is the first licensed gome thot Millennium will publish. Whose decision wos it to publish o licensed gome ond why use Mr Mogoo?
If you look ot the profile of Mogoo especially in the States, he is one of the most recognised images, olpng with Coco-Colo ond Elvis. He hos olwoys been a bumbling old fool who accidentally rights wrongs and talks to hot stands believing them ta be policemen. He is the spokesman for General Electric, RCA, Timex ond several other mojor US companies.
He has been in existence for nearly A5 years and is a household name throughout the world. Ambfin entertainment (Steven Spiefcerg's companyi ore also producing o Mogoo film which will help the owareness of him to gomes ployers.
We've always been on the lookout for good licences, but when Mkhoel Hoyword wos approached by UPA he felt thot this wot loo good ta miss.
OnwsR Millennium were very eager to show their support for the CD32 by releasing Diggers, Robocod and Morph for Commodore's new mochine. This is not normal behaviour for a company who can't afford to waste money, so why did you leap into this new market?
Commodore hod the bottle to go ahead with the first 32-bit CD console ond when someone is that committed ta a project, it’s hard to refuse!
It wos o sound business proposition, but if everyone sits on their hoods ond soys "we'R wait ond see if everyone jumps', then you end with one less innovative hordwore compgny ond no gomes for o project thot should, in theory work.
At least we can say that we gave Commodore 110 per cent backing al the way to Ihe launch, ond you don't get respect if you don’t try.
Whof will the future belike, os for as computer games ore concerned?
As long os we con prove ta the powers that be that we con police ourselves and we don't let the pom merchants succeed, then there is o bright shiny four-inch wide and disc-like future for us oil. One thing thot affected the video industry wos by allowing it ta be monipuMed by the pomogra- phcrs ond schlock merchants.
Everyone then associated the two and the slide began. Only now is it beginning ta reclaim lost ground through a more respectable imoge and after monumental losses of revenue.
Whof port wdl Millennium play in the future of computer games?
Millennium will always ploy an octive role in the industry, producing truly innovotive gomes using the most up to dote technology worked by some of the UK’s best programmers ond artists. So there!
GMWR Will 1994 be the year of Millennium?
I think we've hod o pretty good run this for. Millennium hos experienced considerable growth in some of the toughest conditions through tight management while retaining the independence to move with the market.
1994, however, wdl see some of the best ever Millennium gomes, that we think people want to play. We all enjoy playing gomes here and hope that everyone enjoys our gomes as much os we do!
Mark Rafter - art director Wfcof a your background os hr os ort ond animation goes?
I studied ot the Royal College of Art, doing a BA and MA in pointing. After this I did a further course in Deugn ot the London Colege of Printing. After that I worked in animation for three yeorj on feoture films and TV.
Ft's very unusual for a company to hove o specific art deportment Why hove Millennium looped iMO the world of WwtWfWt?
As for ot I know, having o specific ort deportment is unusvol, but with the demond for better graphics and animation, it's got to be
o good thing.
Lengthy high-class oromofions w»D undoubtedly go hand in hand with the new CD technology. How will these offributo to tbe success of o gome?
Animated intros outros on CD products enhance the gome by exponding the storyline which grves the central chorocter o post or o future. It's creating a whole world if you like, rather thon just a gome.
How do you transmit your idea bom poper to pixel?
Over the pixel artist s shoulder!
What ore the benefits ol having a'red'ortist work on o gome rattier than just a 'pixel' artist on his her own?
How involved do you get when working on a gome?
I try to get invobtd as much os I con with the look of each pmdvrt, but os I hove up to five or six different gomes to work on atony given lime, I'm moving about quite o bit.
What wot your design brief hr Pinkie?
Pinlue already existed in (he gome, it was my job to storyboord the animated inlro sequence; for this my brief was to show his bockground, where he come from, what makes him tick, his character, courage, cuteness, attitude and deter- How does the world of a software house differ bom working in on onimofwn studio?
A lot of fun, I have more of o say creatively. I'm not just part of on impersonal mochine.
The graphical world m Small Furry Creatures will be represented using works by some of the old motors. Why did you decide to use this kind of Ort?
Small furry Creaturesiworking title} is influenced by old master pointing, but I felt the game needed a radical new look thot would suit its storyfine.
Fn the future do you think thot we will see gomes thot will ploy and look like something from the Disney Sudrvon Bluth studio?
I think gomes involving characters tke tomes Pond ond Pinkie wil become more like interactive cartoons, os for os animation is concerned, yes, the sky's the fimit.

Pinkie is Millennium’s great pink hope ond it is envisaged that he'll be btgger thon James Pond |no meon fed with over o million copies sold).
Although Pinkie is o platform hero, he is radically different to anything gamers will have seen before.
For a start he has no special powers - he can't jump from a height and squash enemies or shoot things at them.
He can't run fast, dimb high (allergic to altitude) or fire weapons. In foct, pinkie can't really do anything malicious because he's olso allergic to pain (tell me about it| ond despises violence But he is intelligent, thoughtful, inquisitive, gentle and most of all concerned. The plot will see Pinkie expressing his worry about the imminent demise of the dinosaurs throughout the universe.
So, he deports from his beautiful native planet Pink and sets off to secure dinosaur eggs and bnef J them to the sondvory of the serene planet Pink.
Work is well on the way in Pinkie and okeody one can see the benefits of using a trained movie anH motor. His movements and characteristics ore some of the best I've ever seen on ony computer, how.
Arcode or otherwise. Pinkie oho uses o most unusual colour scheme for its locations and bockdro«J Although still in the development stage, they look gorgeous and you con tell the eye of on artist trained • colour nos been employed.
Pinkie has secured licensing deals on seven other platforms. Pinkie looks os though he could be ¦ major star for 94 ond leave Millennium Interactive well and truly tickled pink.

Dress m your new garb and weor the pendant given k you by the Ent. Do this before you enter the Blue Velvet nightclub; here you will find one of the Fortress parchments.
Check finances, as you will need at leap 20,000 coins for the next part of quest if you don’t have enough, then indulge in a killing and robbmg spree in the city yptil your fmonoes ore sufficient and your bloodust satiated Next, go to the alley of the four towers which is North-East of the harbour and wait until two * the morning for the suspicious character to appear.
If you've been one to enter as many pubs as vou can during th nave met him before. Give him your 20,000 coins and he will give on important item Go to the herb shop and buy the ingredients for five anti-vertigo potion, otherwise known as Mildong, Eat, sleep and heod for the North-East side of Jon's Isl The end of the quest is nearing, however this is the deadliest Oftd most demanding Island of all. First thing to do on this island is to fight the Fire Elemental. This is easier said than done because to kil the Elemental you must have one of your chorocters hold the magic shield while someone
else costs o fire protection spell, then step forward and strike.
At the first crossroads, turn right and follow it oround the block yntil you reach an opening to the North. When you reoch the next crossroads turn to your West if you fancy more experience ond treasure.
Once you've exhausted the maze return to the crossroads. Go North to find the one of the toughest creatures in the gome, a Fire- breathing dragon.
Use the some method as you did against the Fire Elemental to defeat the dragon. He may take quite some time, so be prepared to toke a couple of steps bockwords to beai yourself.
After the defeat of the dragon, heod North. Examine every nook ond cranny in the walls because there are hidden treasures contained in a good many of them.
Shortly you will reoch another crossroods. Heod North, then walch out for a secret passage leading from the North wall.
Follow this secret passage, fighting all the skeletons and wizards en route. When you reoch the end of the passage, enter the maze. Beware this is no ordinary maze, os most of the walls ore invisible doors - so mop carefully. At the end of the maze pull the handle ond fight your way bock to the crossroods.
At the crossroads go South, then stop when you reach a room.
The wads in here have spikes poking out of them, so make sure you slalom through carefully.
You should now hove reoched Shandor's fortress. In the first large room, stick to the edge of the room - avoid the middle! At the South-East of the room collect the treasure.
In the North-West comer of the room there is a knight who you will hove to kill. Once defeated, leoye by the door behind him.
Wolk straight through the next room ond leave by the North exit.
Look out for a smoll room to the West, enter it ond activate the mechanism. Now race bock to the end of the corridor. Your next encounter is with a Gorgon, she has a particular talent for inverting people so kill her as quickly as possible. After you've defeated her, move into the room beyond and drink from the fountain to restore life.
Heod South into a labyrinth full of mummies ond witches for you to kid. When you've dealt with them all, leave by the Southern exit. Take the next passoge East ond look for a smoll room to the West. Activate the mechanism you find there, then head bock into the passage. At the end you will find some Lion guards; kill them ond use mogic to heol ony wounded chorocters.
Examine the grille in front of you and trigger the trapdoor next to it. Walk through ond heod North ot the next crossroads. Wolk to the end, take the treasure ond octivote the mechanism. Return to the crossroads and heod down the South possoge.
At the end is a room with a magician in it. For once in your blood-lusting life don't kill him; try the humble art of communica- Hon and listen to what he says.
Go back to the corridor ond toke the North passoge. You should come to a closed passoge. Place the parrot in front of the large ear and let it talk - the passoge will open.
The next room has low ceiling points, so slalom through with core. At the next room, work oround the edges ond keep away from the centre.
You are about ta engoge in the final battle of the game, so get everyone up to full strength ond prepare a Psychic shelter spdl.
Heod into the Northern room and Shondor will appear. All you have to do now is kill him, then retreat from the fortress enjoying the fireworks. Kendoria should now be oble to look forword to o peaceful and prosperous existence.

latest applications o, what are the limitations of Arexx’s
string handling routines? Well, for a sum, they are a hit too
fixed and rigid, a bit too literal, if you like. Essentially.
Arexx offers three methods of parsing a text: It can detect
individual words in a text, such as text separated by
so-called “whitespace", which is computerese for blanks, new
lines, tab stops and the like; it can search and find
specified characters in a text: and it can find text in
specific numerical such as the tenth character in a siring.
These methods can be used in combination, and with a bil of smart coding they can be very powerful.
The weaknesses start to show when you want to parse for a string that is not so rigidly defined; perliaps a string that is defined by alternative choices, or by what it does not contain, or even by the characters it contains, hut not necessarily in the correct order.
Searching For instance, suppose you want to write a routine that searches a text either for the pattern “abc", or for the pattern “xyz". You will have to perfonn at least two separate operations (two checks) before you have your result.
There is no way in standard Arexx to formulate the idea: “search the text for either pattern a', or pattern b', and notify when you have found it", in one step.
Advanced The same applies in all the other examples above - whereas it is not too difficult to get the desired result, quite a few steps are needed to get there! Searching the same piece of text several times over before you find what you want can be quite wasteful, and can make your programs slow.
With a bit of thought, you will realise that it should be possible to check through a given text only once, testing for all alternative patterns as you go along, much like a human reader would.
After all, if you want to find out whether a text contains any of the words "dog', "cat" or ‘mouse", you do not read it three times! What is needed is an appropriate notation that will allow us to specify the alternatives we are searching for. And an algorithm to perform tin- search efficiently.
In other words, we want a son of super-flexible pattern matching notation that will also allow “wild" characters. Negatives and alternatives.
A notation like this does exist, and it is known as "regular expressions". Regular expressions play a very important role in computing, and tor good reason, The notation of regular expressions is extremely powerful; for instance, it can be used to analyse any stream of characters in order to see if the words they form belong to a certain language or not - whether tliat language be English. Latin, Basic or Arexx.
This notation has now become more or less standardised (there are small variations), and is used whenever a computer language is designed or analysed, However, despite their power, regular expressions are quite easy to use, and arc useful for scores of other jobs too - some of them a lot more common than computer language design .
Even the ordinary Amiga DOS file wildcards like ? And
* ? (where p*?.info means any file suiting with *p" and ending
with “.info") are simply a very small subset of the regular
expression concept.
Other examples include pattern matchers for finding crossword clues, database enquiry systems that can acccpd incomplete specifications, and. Of course, the good old won processor spelling checker that gives you alternative sugge*-J tions.
There are also several programming languages - especially languages that are intended for text processing - that have a built-in ability to handle regular expressions, suctt as Perl and Awk Anyone who luls worked with these lifW guages will miss their power and flexibility when having km use Arexx.Thc history of regular expressions is closely tied id with die development of software science, and there is a lad of literature on the subject - anyone who wants to find cd more should consult a book on compiler fundamentals or la-1 ical analysis.
Every computer programming hobbyist will gain from a study of regular expressions - but the good news Ls that yod do not have to understand any of the theory in order to u* die system effectively.
Well then, why not combine the best of both worlds? It would seem that Arexx and regular expression have a lot to offer Citch Other. This idea prompted me to action. I knew that there were quite a few freely distributable function libraries to handle regular expressions, so I set out to see it I could adapt any of them to Arexx.
I didn't need to go far Ix-forc I found that this had already been done! On Fred Fish disk number ¦» h I found Stephen Moehle's regv.xp.library, which has a ready-to-go Arexx interface.
This neat little library adds five new functions to the system. The two main ones Iwing REIndex(string.pattern) and RESubstristring,pattern). These do almost exactly the same job as Arexx’s built-in Index!String,pattern) and Sulwtrtsuing,position) functions, but instead of specifying a Fixed pattern or a position, you specify a regular expression, as delined in the library's documentation, .As always, please remember that hefore you can use any external Arexx library you must first add it to the system, either by issuing the command rxlib xxx.library 0 -30 0 at the Shell, or by using the
AddUW) function in the same way in your program If ytou want the library to be available at all times you should add die 'rxlib'' line to your user-startup, To .
Any character except new line $ the end of a line : whitespace :a any alphabetic character ;d any digit Ul any of the characters... in the brackets any of the characters... not in the brackets + one or more occurrences i zero or more occurrences takes the next character literally (used for symbols) Diagram I: Somo regular expression symbols AREXX give you a quick taste of what this is like, we will look at some examples. Diagram 1 gives a brief summary of the main elements of regular expressions. Note that it is by no means a complete list!
In the examples that follow I have tried to strike a balance between simplifying the ideas as much as possible so that they are readily understandable to newcomers, and not to be too repetitive.
Using regular expressions along w ith Arexx gives us a neater way to do the job. And the resulting code is much faster.
Pittern * * [Pp]r[»: )?'
DO FOREVER UNTIL tut = " word * IESubstr(f' ' || text) , pet* tern) PARSE VAR text bet (word) text EN) The regular expression pattern above is explained in Diagram II. Other than that little explanation is needed. A blank is added in front of the siring each time - this is necessary because any trailing whitespace or punctuation is removed by the last IV,!: |+ pattern.
It also takes into account the case of the first word in the text. Note that the word will still have to be stripped of the There Is an important advantage when using regular expressions to parse a string of characters. The standard Arexx technique of panning a string with patterns, returns the first stnng that matches the pattern.
Loopholes However, there might have been a more general instance that also matched the pattern, in which case it would have been truncated and lost. For instance, suppose we arc searching a text lor words lx*ginning with the letters "pr' and ending with “es", using some code like: ?ARSE VAR text bitbefore 'pr' txx 'ex' bitifter word = 'pr' || ixi || 'ex' If the word "processes" was encountered, the resulting word would be "proces", as the last ’ses* would be cut off and lost.
I'here is also the problem of ensuring that only single words are checked (avoiding multiple word combinations, where one word starts with a 'pr" and a subsequent one ends with “es such as “prink* fees").
String handling We could specify' blank spaces in the parse string (before the Mp' and after the "s"), and this would work fairly well, except it would still not take account of punctuation marks, tabs, new lines and so on.
In fact, die 'formal' wav to do tins under Arexx would be to parse the text word by word, strip any extraneous characters and check whether each word meets our requirements The code for this would Ix* a few lines longer, and it would run a much slower. But it would work correctly. Notice that if we had to allow for capitals, we would need an extra cik*ck.
M FORM!

Punctuation marks.
Another useful example is the parsing ol a lull pathname in order to extract the actual file name, Suppose you have a pathname such as “DHOtsuIjdirl sulxlir2 dir myfile". In the past we have dealt with this situation in two wrays. Tbe more common alternative is to find the position i f the last slash, and then parse by position to get the file name.
N - listpos PARSE VAR pathnuc * filtniae Tlie other alternative is to parse the name recursively using the pattern *r until you get to the last one. This is more involved, but can be useful if you also want to know how many levels down you are.
The regular expression that deals with this problem is simply location * IESubitr(p*thAl»t,'.» ') PARSE VAI pathniae (location) filcMlt Obviously ihis example is trivial, but it illustrates the point very clearly. Regular expressions will return the longest possible string that matches the panem. And not the first occurrence.
I am sure that if you do any sort of utility programming, you will find regexp.library a very welcome addition to your libs: drawer. I must point out that this implementation is still a bit weak, mainly because il docs not allow for bracketing and repeated patterns.
I hope the situation will Ix* remedied soon. After all the code Is freely available - all that needed Is to convert it into an Arexx library.
One of the main strengths of Arexx is the ease and elegance with which it handles strings of characters. But even here there is room for a lot of improvement, as Alex Gian reveals 6REAT AMIGA OFFERS The Premier Library of Wales - Now Eitabii.shed over 5 years 1000's satisfied customers wirrtdwide smmm mmmi present PowcrBasc 1 3.30 "the best value user-friendli database on the Amiga' Amiga Computing, Sept 93

You've given the script to tlie actors and the storyboards to the camera operator. In ! cd at night, you lie awake sing and turning, juggling queries and doubts about the tideo that want to be answered.
Where should I place the mike for optimum sound quality m a four-way, one shot conversation? Am I good enough to direct a team of 20 people? It's four o'clock in the morning and I still have a day job to get up for. The answer to any ponies is to keep organising. Next up on the list of priorities is to call a production meeting. This involves the crew but not the actors. At the moment, props and set dressing lists, scheduling and location hunting involving a recce are probably your main concerns. Remember to delegate - don't try to do ! Everything yourself, your crew is there to help.
VIDEO With amateur videomaking, relying on people's goodwill is very important. Laying your hands on props and items for the locations can be difficult but you’ll lie surprised at how interested and generous people can be when asked for a favour concerning a film.
Start with either a letter or phone call to the shop or owners of a particular location or prop you want to use and explain your situation and needs in straightforward terms emphasising that the video is non-profit making but you intend to enter the film into international competitions.
Offer them a chance to see the final result and ask if they would like a credit in the end titles for their troubles. Also promise to send the exact times and dates of when and where you want to shoot in writing When permission is gained, make sure it is given in writing »people can “forget" especially if shooting in a pub. Club or shops) then the next step is the location hunt or recce.
This is used by the director, camera operator and PA to take a look round various possible settings for the video.
EXPERIMENT Try to take a camera or camcorder with you to get some shots of the location to take back and study in more detail.
While there, discuss with the camera operator what ideas you have for the shooting of the scene. Storyboards can lie altered or completely changed so don't Ix* afraid to experiment.
Give him or her space to express their ideas as well which, like the story creation stage, can help to trigger more ideas and form a better working relationship - show people at this early stage that you trust and respect them and their own opinions.
If you do. They’ll enjoy working for you and that means they'll work harder, producing better results over the rest of the shoot.
Check out how practical it will l e to set up lights, tripods, sound equipment and so on. Count the amount of power points there are in the place - you may need extension leads and four-way adaptors.
Another important point often overlooked bv amateur crews until it’s too late and the entire buildings fuse box is blown, is to remember to calculate the amount of electricity being used by all the equipment - lights in particular can have a nasty habit of overloading and shorting the system.
Above all. Be practical first and creative second. Assess what is available to you and work from there. If the ground- Calling all the heroes Once everybody has agreed to the schedule, the next stage is to create call sheets. These document the exact times, locations and people that will be needed on each day.
Distribute them to everyone involved either at the beginning of the shoot or, more practically, the evening before each shooting day so that the information or any changes are up-to- date and accurate.
Work is done then the inspiration will grow from it.
On successfully attaining the basic tools for the film, the next and probably most difficult stage especially with an inexperienced PA. Is to sit down and sort out the scheduling for the entire shoot.
PLANNING If this is your first time then it is still important to have a tight if lenient time structure. Firstly, it will make yourself and the crew more motivated and focused.
Secondly, if you turn up at a location and the owner see a slaek and decidedly denergised mass of disorganised people then they may well change their minds and kick you out of the building. You may be an amateur videomaker but act in a professional manner.
It is very Unlikely and oflert impractical to shoot a script in order. Time, access and Managing your time How to keep your head when making a film -all is revealed in the third instalment of Adam Phillips’s video making story the hassle of shifting gear back and forth to certain locations are usually the main reasons for shooting out of order.
Break the script down into each scene and work out through the storyboard and shooting script (a list of all shots used in the video where each is numbered) and estimate as accurately as you can with the PA how long each one will take to film.
If the shots in a particular scene are relatively difficult to achieve, such as a moving shot with the camera operator using a wheel chair, try and take any difficulties into account.
Once decided, take a lump of time needed to shoot the entire scene and organise it into the overall shooting day.
Do this with all the scenes and arrange them into schedule with dates and times. Try and give yourself emergency space in case of going over schedule.
When completed, call a meeting for both crew and cast to check that there will be no problems with dates clashing and to inform everyone of exactly what is going on to avoid confusion later.
If it all seems like a huge and monstrous amount to think about, remember to take everything one step at a time and you’ll find that all the pieces of the jigsaw will slot into place AMIGA REPAIRS FIXED CHARGE ONLY £42.99 incl.

Expiry date: Signature _ Name _ Address Postcode hether you're a dedicated niuso or just an interested bystander with a shiny new machine, getting into Amiga music can be much cheaper and simpler tluin might imagine.
To stait we’ll l x k at the market from the bystanders position, highlighting the cheap and cheerful products which for as little as 12 will allow any beginner to create music on a par with that found on commercial games software.
Alternative. Almost all the major libraries carry the four track version lor around £2.
When ordering be sure the software on offer Is at or around v3.20. like all the soundtracker clones. MED employs standard 8-bit samples as its primary sound source. These can be either created yourself or alternatively there's a wide .selection of pre-recorded effects and instruments that can lie Ixxight direct either on disk or CD from PD libraries or dedicated sample suppliers.
If you're happier with pre-recorded sounds, quality commercial sources include the Zero-G Datafile which carries both CD and disk-lxised collections, and is available direct from Tinx* and Space at PO Box 306, Herts HIM 3F.P. Tel: 0442 870681.
Although excellent quality the vast majority of the Zero-G samples are heavily dance- oriented w ith assorted scratches and popular luxik lines For am would-be D|s or rave As you've probably guessed we re talking PD anti more precisely MED - a program that's Ixren tlx* premier PD soundtracker clone for longer titan most Amiga musos would care to remember.
Due to tlx* prolific success and Countless updates - courtesy of its creator Teigo Kinnunen - the PD libraries are literally fit to burst with countless revisions of the aforesaid MED.
However, if you're after the very latest offering - alias OctaMed vS - Seasoft Gmiputing is the first place to look, primarily because they have managed to obtain exclusive rights to distribute the eight- track licenceware version which comes in at a lull package price ol around £30. For more information contact Seasoft Computing on 0903 830378.
Although eight channels may sound more attractiv e than the four track sliarevvare alternative, the additional tracks do not play samples but merely sequence Commodore (M style syntii sounds.
For the beginner these additional tracks aren’t essential, and us a result, the four-track PD program is perhaps the ideal choice for testing the water prior to the larger invcsuix-nt in the licenceware Sound advice The ultimate band If you're still undecided as to the filling for your post- Christmas musical stocking. Blue Ribbon can supply an intermediate package which allows the user to employ their own or pre-recorded samples as part of an automated six- part accompaniment.
The software, entitled SuperJam1.1. allows you to begin building a bridge between the internal sounds of the machine and the world of Midi.
It works by allowing you to assign any one of numerous Styles which then form the framework within which your five automated musicians will literally jam along.
All you need do is add the basic melody and play your part as the lead soloist. No matter what chord progression you add the other members will automatically play a suitable accompaniment.
PURPLE POP For example, if you specify a rock-style with a chord progression of say E minor. G and A, your automated bass player is almost certain to rip straight into Smoke on the Water!
OK. Nobody said the package is perfect but with a bit of practice you can generate perfectly acceptable lift music easily, which can then be worked into a pseudo-original or perhaps employed directly as backing music on various multimedia exploits.
Besides the fun and functionality of the package, the beauty is that SuperJam1.1 is equally at home with Midi information as it is with converted Amiga samples. If you're looking for an affordable and interesting introduction to composition plus both an educational and speedy production tool. SuperJam1.1 is ideal.
Easy Midi If you're looking to side-step the internal talents of the Amiga altogether, there are a whole selection of budget conscious sequencers waiting in the wings.
Although all of the programs listed are primarily aimed at Midi, they also all fully support the machine’s internal talents with equal enthusiasm.
Although not a particularly strong selling point in the eyes of serious users, it does mean that if Midi music is your goal but finances mean a wait for the necessary hardware you can still come to terms with the software thanks to inexpensive Amiga samples.
Ideal choices for any potential investor Include Sequencer One Plus, MusicX, BAPPro2 and TigerCub, the first of which is perhaps the ideal choice boasting an extremely user-friendly editing system and intuitive design.
On the downside, Sequencer One Plus isn't the cheapest, as the now rather elderly Paul Austin points out the best selection of software for the musical beginner fans tlx* collection Is ideal; however ii you're planning to Ixiild original tracks from tire ground up. The next collection is probably a more attractive proposition.
If you fancy an alternative to rave tunes, tlx* Sample Series front those loveable Mancunians at Software Technology could have an ideal alternative. Unlike the Zero-G collection tlx* Sampler Series is comprised entirely of sounds borrowed from the latest synths. II you’re interested in a more purist's approach to audio plagiarism, you can gel the aforesaid collection from; Software Technology. I-Mex House. TO Princess Street. Manchester Ml 6DE. Tel: 061-236 231 vi.
But still usable MusicX easily lays claim to that particular title. MusicX was, in its day, easily the hottest item on the Amiga music scene, and it still remains a viable option especially If you’re prepared to shop around
- although It has been superseded by the others when it comes to
ease of use and added features.
The final option is to throw caution to the wind and invest in Bars & Pipes Professional v2 - which although far from cheap offers a degree of expandability only equaiied by KCS
3. 5. The reason for the B&PPro2 bias as opposed to KCS is simply
that although the two are on a par for power, B&PPro2 is much
easier to master for the outright beginner.
If you think that in time you may be in the market for a real power package, it could be worth tracking down a copy of TigerCub. This is basically a very cut-down version of the bigger KCS sequence. However it does provide a great opportunity to familiarise yourself with the KCS environment prior to taking the plunge into KCS 3.5. DMC PRODUCTS • DMC PRODUCTS • DMC PRODUCTS Kts P.D.
