By John Butters THE CD32 assault has continued recently with Commodore launching the revolutionary console in the United States and finally announcing availability of the full motion video module.
Industry experts believe that in order to enjoy long-term success the player must take off in the US, a market which Commodore have so far failed to crack.
But its launch at the Us Vegas Consumer Electronics Show was a low key affair. Software houses gave it their support in small meeting room containing half a dozen machines.
Around 100 game's titles were promised by the time it goes on ule there in the next few weeks. It will cost S399 and be packed with Pinball Fantasies and Sleepwalker.
Back in Britain, the full motion video is now on sale and Commodore claim it can transform the console into the world's best home entertainment package.
When fitted, the Cl99 device enables up to 74 minutes of movies and music videos to be played from a compact disc.
Films available on a CD32 near you... Fatal Attraction Ghost Patriot Games Raiders of the Lost Ark Star Trek Star Trek VI Top Gun The Untouchables Wavne's World Hunt for Red October Indecent Proposal Indiana Jones and the Temple of I)oom Naked Gun 2 ) Holograms to cut CD piracy A MEASURE aimed at cutting illegal copying of compact discs has been announced as figures from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry show CD piracy is on the up.
According to the IFPI. The number of pirated discs printed or imported into Britain during 1992 was 700,000. In the year before there were hardly any.
Now with the computer games industry eager to move to this "piracy free" media, there are worries that it won't be long before it too becomes noticeably affected by illegal copying.
At least one company has announced details of a counter measure which aims to identify discs as authentic. By printing holograms in colour on Cds, Sussex- The module is based on Mpegl technology called Video CD - a standard agreed between industry giants Commodore, Philips, Sony, JVC, Matsushita and Paramount Home Video.
CD32 assault continues Video discs have already started to appear, many of them from Philips using a slightly different format called Video CD-i, but compatible with the Amiga system. They cost from £15.99 each, and among the first 50 films are hits Top Cun, Naked Cun 2 'A Patriot Game's and Wayne's World.
First music discs, meanwhile, include Andrew Llovd Webber's Premier Collection, Brian Adams's Waking up the Neighbours and Inxs's Live Baby Live.
Commodore boss David Pleasance said: "Amiga CD32 cannot be matched as a games machine. Now it can offer movies and music video too.
"It really is the first machine on the market to offer all forms of electronic entertainment in one box."
Based Disctronics say they have made it virtually Impossible to copy discs without expensive equipment.
Although copied discs would still work, customers would be able to identify genuine products and avoid buying substandard imitations.
Disctronics say the security adds very little cost to the software development.
"We feel this must be a good, simple and low-cost step towards security," said the company's chief executive David Mackie.
"We believe it is the responsibility of the Company to provide security features which allow customers to know they are buying the real thing."
Graphics zoom along with Warp ZORRO-based Amiga owners will soon be able to transform their machines into some of the world's fastest and most advanced computer systems.
Warp uses high-performance parallel Rise processors to deliver supercomputer power to people running ray-tracing and other high-end graphics applications.
It consists of a base board containing a single processor and the transputer-based system has slots for two extra processors.
A network connector allows external boxes to be fitted and further processors to be added, and has support for SCSI-II controllers and DSP display modules.
INCREDIBLE Each chip adds 30 million instructions per second to the computer's speed, with 40 modules carrying out an incredible 1,200mips. An unexpanded A4000 operates at about 18mips.
A software driver makes the system compatible with Amiga software including Real 3D. Vista Warp.
Imagine. Art Department Professional and Aladdin 4D, But it needs to be switched off to ensure the computer is compatible with other programs.
Warp will be sold in Britain from April through London-based SatLink (071-371 7471). Prices are expected to be around £1,330 for the base board and £800 for each module.
Towards the end of the year, an even faster version of the product based on the T9000 processor will increase the computer’s speed in steps of 200mips.

Accessing CD CD-ROM drives which fit into the ; 25in bay of the top-end Amigas are now available to enable owners of the computers to read CDTV, CD32, PC and Macintosh compact discs.
Three versions are available, each Jimed at users who want to access a wide range of clip art and public domain files.
Leeds-based First Computer Centre .0532 319444) expect the £219.99 Toshiba XM4101 to be the most popular. It has a 300 millisecond access time and 317k per second data transfer.
A driver is supplied to allow the compact discs to be used with A1500, A2000, A3000 and A4000 machines, although none of the drives allows CD32 software to be run.. Prices depend on specification, with each drive offering different access times and transfer rates. The XM4101, however, is the cheapest at £219.
A SCSI interface is also needed, with First Computer Centre supplying a device for £122.
Speeding up GREAT Valley Products have announced details of their fastest accelerator yet, the A4000 Gforce 040.
It uses a 68040 processor running at 40MHz, and can be fitted with up to 128Mb of 32-bit Fast RAM.
An expansion socket provides signals for a SCSI-II fast module that gives data transfer rates up to 10Mb per second when used with high performane hard drives.
The board fits into A3000 T and A4000 T computers, and is due for imminent release. British distributor Silica Systems (081-309 1111) say the price remains to be fixed.
First time troubles cut FIRST time printer buyers are targeted for Citizen’s new ABC 24-pin dot matrix machine which, claim the manufacturer, is the easiest- to-use machine on the market.
Billed as a true plug and play printer, Citizen say that newcomers will be able to install and use it within five minutes of opening the box.
The 022 ABC avoids complicated control panels and set-up procedures, and is configured for use with the Amiga by EasyStart software packaged with the machine.
EasyStart provides users with a step-by- step on-screen graphical guide to installation, walking them through the complete process of setting up the printer and preparing it for use.
It has been designed for use in the home and small office, where Citizen believe that many potential customers find computers and printers intimidating.
"Our mission was to develop a printer that really is as easy as ABC," said Citizen’s group product manager, Andy Martin.
"We conceived EasyStart as an interactive, graphical tutorial that guides you through connection, set-up and paper loading.
"Above all, we wanted to make the Citizen ABC amazingly friendly and fun to use.” Other features include a print speed of 160 characters per second in draft mode and 53cps at 10 characters per inch. Memory is 8k and it has a resolution of 360 dots per inch.
Optional extras are a colour kit, push tractor feed and 128k memory.
Cheeky ad targets Sega COMMODORE would have had difficulty finding a cheekier position to place their Sega-knock- ing CD32 advertisement over Christmas.
The aggressive "To be this good will take Sega ages" ad appeared next to Sega's office on Cromwell Road, London throughout the festive period.
Upgrades boom follows deal AN AGREEMENT just signed between Power Computing and US-based DKB Software is promised to bring more upgrades to Amiga owners in Britain.
The first is a SCSI-II card which enables A3000 and A4000 owners to connect up to seven extra devices to their computer.
Once plugged into the machine’s Zorro III expansion slot, the DKB4091 allows peripherals such as hard drives, CD-ROM drives, tape back up units, image scanner and printers to be used.
Its makers claim the £399 card provides the maximum transfer speed for data intensive multimedia applications, and it has a slot to enable a 3.5in hard drive to be fitted on the board. Other upgrades include a board which expands the A1200’s memory up to 8Mb. It has two sockets and prices start at £169,95 for a 2Mb version with a maths co-processor, And for people wanting to increase the memory of high-end Amigas. The firm will soon be selling a board which gives A3000s and A4000s a massive 128Mb of RAM. Within the next few weeks a 68030 accelerator will be launched for the A1200. It will
also allow up to 128Mb of extra memory to be added.
Bedford-based Power Computing can be telephoned on 0234 843388.
Revolutionary painting package nears A REVOLUTIONARY method of painting is set to appear on the Amiga with the release of a new high-end package aimed at broadcasters and other graphics professionals.
The as yet unnamed program breaks away from normal ways of painting on the Commodore computer, instead using multiple layers of "glass”.
Previously this kind of application cost around £100.000, but the new package just needs an Amiga fitted with a 32-bit graphics board.
Exact details remain sketchy, but its British distnbutor says the program will be capable of building images from several elements or as a rough.
Some television adverts are already made in this way, with up to 50 layers of video producing effects that look realistic to the eye "After seven years without anybody improving on Deluxe Paint we have a new idea on how painting should be produced - it's revolutionary.’ said Amiga Centre Scotland boss Martin Lowe.
It is expected to be available from ACS within the next couple of months.
Its price remains to be fixed CompuServe slash connect costs ONLINE information giant CompuServe have slashed connect charges for hourly- priced services by around 40 per cent.
The US-based firm says the cuts have been made possible because advanced technology has resulted in lower operating costs.
"We are pleased to pass these savings on to our members in the form of substantially lower connect rates," said Barry F Berkpv, CompuServe's executive vice president, "We have the financial strength and stability to allow us to reduce our rates while continuing to offer the most extensive range of services in the industry."
Areas affected by the savings include interactive forums, premium travel services, financial services, reference databases and entertainment.
Someone accessing the services using a 1,200 or 2,400 baud modem now pays about £3.30 an hour compared to the old rate of £5.50. Other baud rates see similar cuts.

MUSICIANS from around the world have joined forces to produce a collection of dance and techno tunes for a record due at the end of May.
Between 15 and 20 tracks are expected to be included on the Amiga Experiment compact disc, all of them generated using the Commodore machine.
The project started last autumn when Newcastle-Upon-Tyne man John Atkinson and local Time Stretch recording studio saw an Amiga demo.
"Seeing the Space Ball rave demo we became impressed by the Amiga's ama ing sound capabilities," John Atkinson told Amiga Computing.
An advert was placed in the computer press asking for musicians to contact him and from the 66 people who responded 11 were picked to be involved with the record.
The collection will be compiled on an A500P using tracker program OctaMed which, with its Midi ability, Atkinson considers to be the best software for the group's needs.
It is planned to cost £6.50 and will be sold by mail order and through public domain libraries.
Driving quality improves Complaints over computer use DESPITE the increased sales of computers over recent years, only one in five Britons find them easy to operate and millions more have other complaints about their use.
That's the finding of a Gallup survey, which also shows people think computers have made business unnecessarily complicated.
Only one in 20 of the 1,000 people questioned believed computers helped running a home or family, with a large number of them saying they will never buy a machine.
The survey also showed concerns about the price of computers, that children spend too much time playing games, and over the spread of computer pornography.
On a more positive note, half of Britons consider computers a must in today's society and nearly as many people think they have made business more sophisticated.
THE EXTERNAL Overdrive hard disk for the A1200 has been improved with a new controller and higher quality' casing and power supply.
It is available with either 250Mb or 340Mb of storage capacity and has an average data transfer rate of 1.5Mb per second and a maximum of 2.5Mb per second.
Dealer Special Reserve (0279 600205) say early reliability problems have now been overcome.
"The new hard drives have been fully tested and found to be reliable, capable and fast," a spokesperson explained. "They are substantially faster than 2.5in internal hard drives."
Prices are around £299 for a 250Mb model and £379 for 340Mb capacity.
Survey to report on security breaches THE Government are carrying out a national survey to find the extent of computer security breaches experienced by British firms.

Activa Technical Support UK: 081-402 5770, BBS 081 986 5964. Fax: 081-402 5780 ACTIVA MttRNATIONAl NEWS When Commodore previewed CD32 at North American World of Amiga shows, they hinted that the major US unveiling would be held at the Winter Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Denny Atkin on Commodore’s cautious CD32 unveiling at the CES, and the rest of the news from across the water Commodore did have a tasteful booth, but unlike the 3DO, CD-i, and Sega booths which were smack dab in the middle of the floor with literally thousands of people passing them each hour - Commodore chose to exhibit in a room upstairs away from the hustle and bustle.
Low-key US launch for CD32 So while CD32 was there to see, and looking competitive compared to 3DO and blowing CD-i right out of the water, only about a dozen people were in the room to see it each time I walked by.
That's been Commodore's problem in the US for years now. Instead of putting their all into getting the attention of the masses, Commodore have relied on getting the word out to a small group who actively seek them out and hoping those folks will tell their friends.
Commodore did stage a press conference, and that played to a packed house. They started the conference by mentioning that the company had annual sales of S600 million (a few years ago it was SI billion), arfl that there have now been more than five million Amigas sold.
Commodore now feel that their US market is in video workstations, while the European market is more consumer- oriented.
In their bid to become a player in the US consumer market again, the company announced plans to release CD32 here in March. However, the company doesn't have the resources to mount .1 major national advertising campaign in a country this large, so they’re looking to use some innovative techniques to get the word out.
These will include a CD32 Club and an attempt to get CD32 units and titles into rental outlets such as video stores, Commodore said thev had sold over 100,000 CD32 units as of the January show, and said they hope to be able to sell 300,000 to 500,000 CD32 units in the US in 1994.
Although many question their ability to sell that many units without a major advertising campaign, Amiga users hen? Are hopeful that it will happen.
Recent visitors to Commodore's West Chester offices describe it as "a ghost town", and the entire software development crew is down to fewer than ten people now.
Commodore could certainly use the cash generated by a successful CD32 product to get its stagnant Amiga development back on track. In Amiga computer-related news, I Lew Eggebrecht said that the CD32-compat-1 ible CD-ROM add-ons for the A121X1 and I A4000 were still in the works and he hoped I they'd be available soon.
In an interesting side-note, ho mentioned I that Commodore had even considered the I feasibility of creating CD32 add-ons for the I PC and Macintosh, but at the moment no such products were planned.
When asked whether Commodore would release any new Amiga computers this year, Eggebrecht said yes, but declined to elaborate.
ADPro gets better Microbotics sold Although the version number has only been bumped a little bit - to v2.5 - ASDG refer to the new release of Art Department Professional as The most significant upgrade in its history”.
Microbotics, one of the oldest Amiga hardware developers, have been bought by Paravision, a company with a video and connectivity hardware background.
Paravlsion say they will continue to support and develop the current Microbotics product line, and will develop new products with a particular emphasis on A1200 and A4QQQ products, Microbotics recently announced the Modem 19. A high-speed 19.200 bps modem available in both external and internal models for the Amiga.
Paravision’s announcement of the purchase said that they have retained the former Microbotics management, technical, and engineering staff. The announcement also indicated that the team, in addition to developing Amiga products, will also be working on products for PC systems running Windows.
Although Paravision are based in North Ridge, California, the company will continue to handle customer service from the former Microbotics location in Texas.
For more information, contact Paravision, 1251 American Parkway, Richardson, Texas 75081. Or call 010 214 644 0043.
Many long-time ADPro users will consider the user interface to be the upgrade's biggest improvement.
“We surveyed our customers and found that some preferred a list-oriented graphical user interface (GUI) for speed, while others preferred a button-oriented GUI for ease-of-use. “We implemented both and allowed them to be intermixed configurably."
ADPro 2.5 adds RTG (retargetable graphics) technology, so the new user interface can now be displayed directly on the screens created by third-party display boards such as the Picasso, EGS, Retina, and Video Toaster. ADPro can now render its images in a window on the same screen as its user interface.
ASDG have added CDXL, FLC, and FLI animation formats; Digital Broadcasting Jstream; and ICO file format loaders and savers, as well as support for direct reading and writing of Workbench icon files, If you own the Professional Conversion Pack, you'll also get support for SGI, Alias, and Wavefront files - professional stuff indeed!
Turn back the clock The Fargo Primera colour printer - an impressive device that creates absolutely beautiful high-resolution colour output for about S1000 - is now supported by ADPro in its dye sublimation mode. I’ve seen dye sublimation output from the Primera and it easily rivals photographic or typeset output.
An improved version of the FRED batch program and over 100 included Arexx files provide a wealth of full-motion special effects possibilities. Arexx programs can now be integrated into ADPro's customisable user interface.
Professional video and film users of ADPro will appreciate the new CineMorph utility (no relation to the GVP morphing program) which can convert streams of images between 24 frame-per-second film style and 60 field-per-second video-style time bases.
All of this is supported by much-improved documentation that now includes nine tutorials, more illustrations, and an expanded Arexx section.
The retail price of the program remains at S295, and current ADPro owners can upgrade for $ 45 plus shipping. ASDG have started accepting credit cards, so Visa, Mastercard, and American Express users in a rush for their upgrade can order it via phone now.
For more information, call 010 608 273 6585, or wnte to ASDG at 925 Stewart Street. Madison. Wisconsin 53713.
Did you move up to your Amiga from a Commodore 64? Do you miss those casual old days of waiting for software to load off a 1541 disk drive? If so, Questronix's The A64 Package v3 will let you re-experience those days of eight-bit glory.
Although previous versions of A64 were shareware, this improved product is a commercial program. The package includes a small box that lets you attach C64 serial peripherals (disk drives and printers) as well as a thorough 104-page manual.
The new version adds compatibility' with all Amiga models (although AGA users will have to turn off mode promotion), much better speed and C64 compatibility, new SID sound emulation that sounds just like the real thing, and fast-loader support.
There's also GEOS compatibility for 68000-based Amigas. The emulated C64 can appear to have a REU (RAM Expansion Unit) from 128k to 2Mb attached.
If you have a lot of C64 data files sitting around on 5.25in disks, the A64Tools conversion utility’s file-transfer capabilities alone will make the product worth the purchase price Other features include a utility to convert C64 programs into fast 68000 machine code and a full-featured (.64 machine-lan- guage monitor.

At met thics and technology are two subjects which, though seemingly disparate, have been inextricably linked since the invention of the machine gun and bolt action rifle brought man the power to kill dozens of his fellow men in the course of a few minutes without ever seeing their faces.
Since then, moral arguments have raged with increasing vehemence over the use of technology. At first in warfare, when Arthur "Bomber" Harris found contempt was his only reward for the near destruction of Nazi Germany's transport and industrial bases at the cost of E Losing the race 55,000 RAF aircrew and hundreds of thousands of German civilians, and more recently in medical science.
The widespread application of techniques developed through genetic research reaffirm that man has never failed to use any of the new technologies he has developed, be they weapons designed to kill tens of thousands of civilians in a single sun-hot flash, or methods by which the stuff of life itself is engineered and altered.
Could human rashness and the drive for progress turn computer technology from friend to foe?
Debates, of course, rage on in the medical and other communities concerning ethical problems, but these debates are usually sidelined by the pace at which industry takes advantage of the opportunity for new profit.
Only a few decades after the first serious doubts were raised about genetic engineering, commercial applications for the research carried out since Frick and WatSOrtS DNA work are appearing every year.
In the computer industry we face a similar challenge when we look forward to the application of powerful new processors. Virtual reality, viruses, and artificial intelligence spring to mind as three areas in need of more sober debate.
For example, can it be long before a research engineer working on one of the advanced neural network programmes presently being funded in japan and the USA is confronted by a computer which requests not to be turned off? If a computer could make such a plea of its own volition, we would be faced with a situation in which we had created a slave race of intelligent creatures for whom we were morally responsible, This moment of decision might be before the end of the century.
Simply turning off a machine which had become self* aware would be tantamount to murder.
In more daily practical terms, can we ignore the promise - or threat, if you like - that virtual reality will change the way in which we perceive our environment and lead to new "unreal" experiences? Since the evolution of the human race, the mainstay of our connection with the world we live in has been our senses, and if we are now to trick those senses into believing that the world has changed, shouldn't we be looking at the possible medical and social effects?
Technologies of all kinds, high among them the computer boom, are forging well ahead of fhe ordinary person's ability to assimilate them. Panaceas of all kinds are being promised by scientists who, despite enjoying a less than earned public respect, have nothing in their minds than the next discovery, and for whom the possible consequences of their research is a matter for government legislation rather than personal circumspection.
The scientific community has effectively abrogated its responsibility for the developments it creates. This trend can be traced at least to the half-hearted protests of those involved in the Manhatten Project which produced the first atomic bomb and can be brought down today to those involved in genetic research, who raise both the real problems (as practical advances) and a host of ephemeral answers in the shape of arguments which seldom carry beyond the rarified atmosphere of the scientific journal.
SECOND CLASS If our washing machines, videos, motorway travel, spending, and almost every other aspect of even' day life are to be monitored by computer (as they have been for the last decade), if our bodies are to be made second-class constructions by fhe efforts of scientists seeking the cypher to the genetic code and the perfect human, and if our intellect is to be challenged by increasingly sophisticated computer brains (Kasparov only narrowly defeated his last computer opponent), can we sit back and watch?
There has been little or no debate on the real issue at stake, which is whether or not constant progress, towards which the whole of Western society has been dedicated since Copernicus, is actually desirable. While advances in so many fields threaten to take the humanity out of being human, shouldn't we be taking a step back for a breather?
Since the dawn of time, mankind has never failed to find practical applications for the knowledge our technolog) has made available, and it is time we recognised this fact Advances in genetics, artificial intelligence, and other fields will find their way into the commercial market place or the military, and when they do we might find that our world - the one in which we all live, breath, and reproduce - has been irreversibly altered by anonymous lab technicians with respectable jobs.
If we can't control and monitor the pace of our own ingenuity, can't question the sacrosanct religion of "progress", or are unable to tie our scientists down to the inventions they release on uS, with no thought for their own culpability, can we look forward to a future in which the individual has any liberty at all?
Technological progress is the most powerful religion in the West and seems set to blossom into the future as fusion power, space stations, parallel processors, and genetically engineered children come on stream- If this is the religion of the next few decades, and if serious debate on the direction we are taking is not carried out, then I for one am a heretic.

programs, possibly because of their specialised nature, are
hard to find on the Amiga, Spreadsheets such as Maxiplan (given
away with last May’s AC) have built-in graph generators capable
of some of JcGraph's functions, but for professional results
it is hard to beat JcGraph's flexibility and power.
Offering 13 3D graph types and 13 2D graphs, user-definable perspectives, and output in IFF, PostScript EPS, Aegis Draw, and even Geo 3D object format, JcGraph’s colourful results in IFF form at least) can be loaded into any word processor or DTP package you care to mention, and may- even be rendered in 3D by Scenery Animator.
All graphs start life as an Ascii file which contains the data used by the program to render the final graphic. Using a text editor, the user inputs a list of parameters dealing with the number of columns and rows, the legend shown on each axis, and the numerical data itself. Though not as intuitive as the rest of the program, this process has the advantage that any and all data can be used with JcGraph.
Let's start by running JcGraph and loading one of the sample data files. When the program's window appears on the Workbench screen, three separate windows will be visible, one for main control, one for output, and one showing a wireframe preview.
The first thing we need to do is load the data, so hold down the right mouse button and select the Open option from the Project menu.
JcGraph's data files are stored in the SampleData drawer, from which you should choose the file Sample4x4.asc. This is a set of data consisting of four rows and four columns (hence the filename) and makes for a colourful example. Next, hold the right mouse button down again and choose Load from the Graph Type menu- A list of 26 graph types can be found in the GraphTypes drawer, so double click Say it with pie charts From depicting company sales to the monthly budget, Jean Clement’s JcGraph can salvage graphical sense from a numerical mess, and all in glorious 3D colour on the
3D_DefaultType.grf file. Now we have both data and a graph type, so just click on the Render button found on JcGraph's main control panel and after a short interval a 3D graph will be drawn in the output window.
At first, the graph will look a little flat, so take a look at the four sliders on the right of the control panel. These control JJJJ. J. JJJJJ JJJJj DJJJJJJJJJJJJJJr' J,.- Cven the simple 20 graphics can be Impressive... ..but SD addi a great deal (o aid Impact V Amiga Computing March 1994 Fast JPEG Author: Christophe Feck The Jpeg standard, named after the Joint Photographic Experts Group which formulated it. Is an incredibly efficient and compact way of storing huge graph* ics files without losing much of the original image quality.
Depending on the trade-off desired between compression and quality retention it is possible to squeeze 1Mb 24-bit files down to less than 100k then view them again at almost their original quality.
Even at half the ideal quality setting, it can be difficult to spot the difference between the original file and the compressed version except that the latter will be about a quarter of the size. Our only problem is how to view the Jpeg files.
As a new standard, now universally adopted. Jpeg isn’t supported by most established Amiga art packages, but this duet of Jpeg viewers - one each for ECS and AGA Amigas - will decompress the files and display them as HAM or Ham8 images depending on the machine being used To test the program, go to the CU window at the bottom of your CoverDisk screen, click in it to make it active, then type: If you have an AGA machine, you would, of course, type AGA where it says ECS above, The sample Jpeg file, an example of the Essence h textures for imagine
2. 0 which was originally a large 24-bit file, will appear as a
HAM (on ECS machines such as the A500 Plus and A600) or Ham8
picture (on A1200s and A4000s) And that, folks, is that. The
programs use no special libraries and can be copied to a
suitable utilities drawer on another floppy or hard drive by
Just dragging their icons across.
You will, of course, require either a steady supply of Jpeg images from a bulletin board or PD library, but just as soon as we find a decent, reliable Jpeg encoder in the shareware sector, we'll be including it on a later disk.
Vv we ;o just td On ifter a wn in e flat, in the )ntrol Jom* of the more unusual graph types can look a bit spooky [;•* 3D orientation of the wireframe pre* Mm. And by experimenting you should fee Able to position the preview at a suitable angle and perspective. Now click on lender again.
Notice the difference? By offering complete control over orientation, JcGraph fives us total control over the final pearance of the graph.
Depending on the number of colours [ your Workbench uses, each of the columns can be given a user-defined I colour of their own, but the number of I colours on offer is set by Workbench's own palette.
As the CoverDisk uses onlv four colours for Workbench (to save on chip RAM), it is difficult to make the most of the output while JcGraph is still on the Ask, but installing on another disk is a bfevze.
Just drag the JcGraph drawer icon to Another Workbench disk or hard drive which has enough free space (you'll need About 360k for the drawer) and that's it.
The target disk must have the follow- ng libraries in its Libs drawer: icon.librarv _ (WB1.3 and earlier), powerpacker.library (all machines), iffparse.library (all machines), and kd_freq.library (WB1.3 and earlier). Kdjreq.librarv is stored in the CoverDisk's Libs drawer and can be copied to vour new disk’s libs drawer quite easily.
Simply boot from the new disk or hard drive, open a CLI or Shell window, stick the CoverDisk in DFO and type: COPT »*I6*C0XPUT1«G- H ffiCH1994:LIBS KD_FR£Q.LIBRASY TO LIBS: If you have only one floppy drive this will involve a bit of disk swapping, but so long as the library is copied across properly WB1.3 owners should find lhaf JcGraph works perfectly from its new home. One last step is to place an Assign command in your startup-sequence to assign JCGRAPH: lo the program's new drawer.
Once on a disk which use an eight- colour Workbench, the program's Colour and Palette functions come into their own.
Pound on the Edit menu, Palette allows the user to change Workbench colours to create a range of more exciting hues for the finished graph, and Colour enables the application of different colours to the graph's background, ground colour, and those used for each column of data.
Before Colours can be assigned, you must of course load some data, but this is the only restriction, and there’s nothing to stop the user creating a set of very psychedelic bar charts.
All you need do before wallpapering fhe bedroom with these graphs is leaffi the simple rules governing the make-up of a data file.
To begin with, all files are created in a text editor such as Workbench’s Ed and saved as Ascii files. The common format is to start the file with a line which simply says "1002" followed by a comma, a sequence which tells JcGraph that this is one of its data files.
Next, we must specify the number of columns, which are those values used for the X axis (months, vears, and so on), then the number of lines, which corresponds to the number of items in the graph.
For example, if we wanted to compare sales ot three products over half a year, we would enter 6 for the number of months (or columns), and 3 for the number of products (or lines) ensuring that they are separated by a comma.
On the same line we tell JcGraph how often we want the Y axis marked- If, say, our product sales are in tens of thousands, we would use the figure 10, and so on and JcGraph would mark the axis from 0 to the highest figure used in units of 10.
Finally on this line we have a floating point value which enables us to use floating point values if required, but for most graphs this will be set at 0 to force integer mode.
Our first two lines so far look like this: 1002, 6,3,10,0, Next we give JcGraph the sales figures, one line for each month. So, for example, if products A to C respectively sold 20,000, 25,000, and 17,000 units that month, we enter: 20,25,17, and so on until we have covered all the months. For now, just think of a few random sales figures to give us a nice spread for the finished graph.
Finally, we have two lines, one in which we set out the markers for the X axis, and the other in which we name the items being recorded. In our example, these could be: J»ft,F«b,Aar,Apr,P«y,Jun, ProdA,ProdB,ProdC, If we now save this as MyGraph.asc and load it into JcGraph we can see the results tor ourselves.
Full details of the rest of JcGraph's capabilities, including its Arexx interface, can be found in the documentation which, as a matter of interest, you might not want to print out until you've taken a look at the instructions for the excellent DocDump program, also on this month's disk.
Icon Editor v4 Author: Peter Kiem Good 16-colour icon editors for the new Amigas are hard to find, but Icon Editor v4 (IEv4) is one of the best and offers enough features to satisfy even the most artistic icon designers.
With a maximum of 16 colours and the ability to create enormous icons, Iev4 is much better than the Workbench editor supplied with releases 2.04 and 3.0 and is easier to use. Simple controls and self- explanatory menus make creating new images or adapting old ones an easy affair.
4* On loading, once the timed shareware notices have disappeared, the program presents the user with a large edit window through which an image can be scrolled using the standard scroll bars.
In addition, a zoom bar above the main window offers a range of magnifications up to 16 times normal size, at which point pixels are enormous and detailed editing a breeze.
A cluster of four cursor-type arrows in the lower left of the window can be used to physically move the image in the window rather than just scrolling through it, so there are options aplenty to keep users happy.
Painting itself, as with most icon editors, is less well catered for, and only flood fill, text input, and freehand drawing are available.
However, as most of us would rather design our icons in a paint package such as Dpaint, and as Iev4 has an IFF import option, these few tools suffice for touching up and finishing off an image.
Information details for the icon can be set using a large friendly requester. Here the user can decide on any default or other tool types the icon requires, set its initial screen position, and choose which of the basic file types (disk, drawer, project, and soon) it will be.
Images can bo copied from the normal to the selected icon states and can be scaled up or down between one-eighth Positions 25 X, 4 Y. Icon = *** and eight times their original si e. In addition, the program will, automatically recolour a VVB1.3 icon to suit the changed VVB2.04 and later colour palette.
Even programmers are taken care of by the option to export icon information as C| code, providing another dimension ia flexibility. There's no output for assembler code, but as most intuition programming (for beginners at any rate) is done in C this is not a problem.
The Preview mode cleverly depicts the finished icon with all colours correct foe the present Workbench settings and in the currently selected screen mode, so thefe I no excuse for a finished design which SuperDuper 3.
Author: Sebastiano Vigna A brand new version of a program we distributed over a year ago. SuperDuper 3.0 is one of the fastest and most reliable disk copying programs in the shareware sector and, as it has undergone a complete rewnte to take better advantage of WB2 04 and
3. 0, we thought another airing was called for.
Simply speaking, SuperDuper gets around the Workbench limitations on copying disks by using RAM buffers, stepping the heads of any second and third drives attached to your system, and several other tricks to squeeze as much speed as it can from your disk drive.
If you are fortunate enough to own a second floppy drive or even third, the speed at which SuperDuper carries out a complete disk copy will be something to watch.
By reading a disk, storing it in a buffer, and squirting to two or more extra drives at the same time, SuperDuper can make up to three copies of a floppy in less time than it takes the.usual Workbench method to copy one.
The SuperDuper interface is split roughly into three areas. First there is the fuel bar used to show the progress of operations, below which is a second panel containing the program’s options, and on the right there is a selection of buttons to choose source and destination drives and the method which SuperDuper will use.
Four distinct methods are on offer, and a quick examination of them will help explain how this utility works.
Disk2Disk is a straight copy from one disk to another, and to use it you must have a second floppy drive. This simplest method is the best for most single copy functions and functions more quickly than the traditional DiskCopy command. A simple copy from and to the internal drive is about 25 seconds quicker with SuperDuper.
Note that with all buffer methods, once a buffer image of a disk is created, it needn't be read again, which makes subsequent copies twice as fast The second mode is the buffer mode, used for DFO: to DFO: copies, using which SuperDuper will create a RAM image of the disk before writing it to the second disk. If you have a 2Mb Amiga this will take place in one pass, but other users might have to switch disks to avoid the RAM disk overflowing.
Third we have the HDBuffer method, which creates an image of the source disk on hard drive before writing it to the destination disk. This is ideal for those with hard drives but limited memory, with the bonus that the buffered disk can be kept on hard drive until another copy is required.
Lastly, there is the VD (or virtual device) Buffer mode which is best suited to those who use RAD:, VDO:. Or any other recoverable virtual RAM disk.
SuperDuper will create the buffer In these virtual devices, thus ensuring that even if ass, .Control P*rv*-

the project icon will appear in Iev4's edit window where you
can mess about with it as you please. Once all the graphical
editing is over, select Edit Info from the Icon menu and take a
look at the options on offer.
From top left, we can see that Iev4 already knows that the icon is for a project, but there are no proper tool types and no default tool. For our purposes, we need to set the default tool type as IconX, the AmigaDOS command which will automatically execute the script which calls it.
To do this, simply type the following into the default tool string gadget: Author: Robert Grob This is the latest version of a program which is designed to take long, unwieldy text files such as those often found on CoverDisks and shareware disk, chop them up into small pages, which is much the same for the creation of most other icons, and even if you still feel a little unsure there are plenty of hints and tips in the on-disk documentation.
3. 6 and print as many pages as possible to each sheet of paper.
With the help of DocDump's booklet setting it is even possible to have the program arrange documents in the correct order on both sides of a sheet of paper so that once printed they can be cut in half and arranged as a double-sided A5 booklet complete with page numbers.
Coing through this process manually using a word processor Would be unbearably tedious, yet DocDump does it all in moments and without mishap, making it one of those unsung little heroes of the utility world.

something goes wrong during a multiple copy, the image of the
original disk will survive a warm reset.
Verification is carried out on all copy modes, even on the RAM disk itself, so SuperDuper is just as reliable as a normal Workbench DiskCopy. In addition, all the usual options you’d normally have to type in at Shell can be accessed by clicking on the Options button When this is done a second window opens containing a number of gadgets and toggle buttons using which the user can decide on whether or not to have verification on or off (for faster, but less reliable copying), which file system to use, and soon.
Note the stnng gadgets to the right, and in particular the one marked XPK Lib. The shareware and PD XPK libraries now most commonly used by crunchers and packers 'including the FAST and NUKE libraries used by Disk Expander) can be found on many BBSs and in some PD libraries, and as long as you have one of these libraries you can specify that it is to be used in all buffer operations.
In other words, the presence of an XPK library on your system disk will ensure that all data buffered to the RAM disk will be crunched quickly as it is stored, then decrunched on its way to the second disk, thus making it possible for 1 Mb owners to copy complete disks in RAM without any disk swapping.
It is also possible, using the string gadgets in the lower nght to specify the start and end cylinder to avoid copying large tracts of empty disk, and it is an option the more expert among us will find a very useful speed boost.
Other gadgets here either speak for themselves or are pesenbed in the documentation, but note that SuperDuper automatically detects HD disks, so those lucky enough to have one (step forward all you A4000 owners) can use the program with their 1 76Mb disks.
SuperDuper's third useful window is accessed by clicking on the Info button found on the main control screen, a button which opens a window showing in graphical form the progress of all copy operations. Elapsed time, drive status, and number of copies This instructs the Amiga that when our project icon is double clicked, it should load IconX from the C directory of the current system disk and pass the script to it for execution. Now all we need do is close the information window by clicking on the close gadget in the top left, then select Save As from the Project menu.
When the file requester appears, find the script file you originally saved out and save the icon under the same name. Iev4 will not overwrite the file, just save the icon with the ".info" appender to identify it as an icon. Note that this unregistered version of Iev4 will quit out as soon as you save.
Now we can go back to Workbench and double click on our new icon to carry out whatever commands were held in the script file. A straightforward process made are shown and constantly updated, as is a list of the disks so far copied - useful for putting an end to confusion when making a number of different backups.
From the main window it is also possible just to check a disk for errors or format it using the toggled options selected through the options screen, making SuperDuper an all-round, friendly replacement for Format and DiskCopy. The two commands used most by new users and those which provide the most problems at first.

iuperOuper s main screen DataTypes Author: Commodore- Amiga
Inc. DataTypes are a special feature of Workbench 3.0 and are
used by the MultiView utility as loader modules. As soon as a
new DataType is installed on your Workbench 3.0 floppy or
system partition, the MuitiV»ew program win be able to view
files saved in the format corresponding to the new datatype The
directory found on this month s CoverDisk includes a set of
DataTypes covenng the mostly PC'Oriented image formats PCX and
BMP, Windows icon images, and MacPaint bitmaps.
Installing them on your system disk is easy as pie. Boot from your normal system disk or partition, put the CoverDisk in DFO open a Shell window and type: CD DFO:DATATTPES COPT IEVS STS;DEVS ALL CLONE CD CLASSES COPY DATATYPES SYSlCLASSES DATATYPES ALL CLONE AddDitaTypes REFRESH AmigaDOS will copy all the new files to your existing SYS: dts* and when the AddDataTypes command has been issued they vWI be ready for use. MultiView will now recognise any file saved r the new formats, and if you already have the Jpeg and GIF DataTypes distributed on CoverDisks last year you'll be well on your way to
the complete picture viewer.
Look out for new DataTypes as we find them.
Ciently without blowing its own trumpet.
First of all, run the program which will bring up a smallish window peppered with gadgets used to set the various print parameters. There are buttons to toggle support for tabs and line feeds, choose output to one of the printer ports or a drawer on disk, set the page size, and paper type.
On the right of the screen, a set of string gadgets hold the default number of lines per page and so on for each of the standard page settings and document modes Dump, Column, and Booklet).
Dump mode is a simple squashing method to squeeze four times as much text on a single piece of paper and can be difficult to read if you have bad eyesight.
Booklet mode produces cute little A5 double sided booklets but takes a lot more time, and column mode is designed for those long documents such as source code listings, which can be printed in two columns to avoid wasting most of a sheet of paper.
At the moment, DocDump recognises the DISK crunched text files but will not de crunch them, so you'll find the small command Decrunch on this month s disk. Use this from the CLI to decrunch PowerPacked documents using the command: OECRUNCK FILENARE) TO NEUNANE) Where Filename) is the path and name (for example DFO:DocDump Doc Dump.doc) of the original file and |Newname| is the uncrunched file (RAMJXx'Dump.doc would be fine).
Once a text file is available, use the Load button on DocDump's control screen to select it, then click on Analyse. This will open a small info screen telling us how many pages there are in the document and how many sheets of paper will be requiivd depending on the selected print mode.
Our next job is to choose a printer driver using the Load Drv button and the subsequent file requester to open the DEVS:Printers drawer. On our CoverDisk, only the generic printer driver is included, but if vou have installed DocDump to hard drive or another Workbench disk (see Installation panel) you should have a greater selection.
OK so far? So long as you’re happy with the document settings, which we won't go into in great detail here, the document should appear on paper more or less perfectly.
For some documents, fiddling with the default settings is advisable, and for printing the DocDump.doc file itself there are detailed instructions at the beginning of the text file itself on which settings to use.

The Picasso II is designed to take full advantage of the host computer system. The built in Blitter and high speed memory subsystem mean that you v ill have super fast screen updates. Switching between Picasso II mode screens is very fast and switching between Picasso II mode screens and native Amiga screens is nearly instantaneous (as fast as your monitor can re-sync). Because the Picasso II RTG board does not use Chip RAM. Your Amiga will be less likely to Suffer from bus contention problems normally associated with running high resolution screens and heavy DMA activity.
The Picasso II RTG emulator has been designed so that it uses no Chip RAM. All available screen modes on the Picasso II use only Fast RAM. This sophisticated design means that even a 1Mb Picasso II board can support as many high resolution 256 colour screens as will fit in the Fast RAM of your system.
The Pioasso II comes with several screen modes and resolutions that are industry standard and for which all monitors are designed These modes operate at the proper scan rates and frequencies in order to take advantage of the most popular monitors available. In some instances, where those modes may not be sufficient, you can now create your own custom screen modes with PicassoMode You will be able to create screen modes that exactly match your monitors frequencies and resolution capabilities.Picasso II comes with Personal Paint Lite. MainActor (animation program). IFF. GIF. JPEG and MPEG
Viewers and drivers for ADPro. ImageFX, ImageMaster and Real3D. Other bundles are available too Retargetable Graphics (RTG) is the future of Amiga graphics display technology. True RTG means that a graphics device will not be restricted by the memory limitations of the host System's Chip memory. Or by the speed of the custom chips. A true RTG device does not have to use Chip RAM at all. And can run exclusively in Fast RAM if needed for the best possible performance whilst allowing any well behaved software to utilise the enhanced resolutions and colour modes of the RTG device without any
modification to the software. Well behaved software v ill be able to run on their own high resolution custom screens and will not have to rely on running on either the Workbench screen, or screen promotion hacks, to allow compatibility.
The Picasso II RTG Emulator integrates seamlessly into the Amiga operating system to give the most reliable emulation available. The new resolutions provided by the Picasso II appear in all your applications as new screen modes selectable from the standard ScreenMode requester For any program that allows you to choose a new screen mode, you would simply choose a Picasso II screen mode as an alternative (such as Picasso:1280 x 1024). You will not have to wait for any custom programmed versions of any program that is compliant with the rules of the operating software Such programs will be able
to immediately take advantage of the Picasso ll board Programs that are written with AGA in mind will be able to immediately take advantage of the new modes available to the system.

)8 Ybu might at some point want to copy a single program from a CoverDisk to your compilation, Workbench disk or 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: COPT (directory) TO (nndisk) ALL
• here directory} is the full pathname of the directory you wish
to copy, and newdisk) is the name of the disk ind directory
into which it will be copied.
For example, if you wanted to copy a utility called ;RED from CoverDisk 27's Utilities drawer to a directory :aMed FRED on your Workbench disk, you'd type: CW C0VEft»ISX27:UTILXTlES FtED TO MRHERCBU fRER ALL Alternatively, you can click once on the FRED directory con and drag it across to the new disk's window. This the advantage of creating a new directory for you
* nd 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 I them you can't unless you have also copied the j 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; ftlSKCOPf ftOR irO: TO 0F0: When prompted, put your CoverDisk (the source ! Ask) 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
• our backup.
Readers may have difficulties
• sing our CoverDisk, so we have ncluded this page to help you
Below we explain how to copy Hts from one disk to another, how to copy the entire CoverDisk and to de-archive programs. One 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 ot 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*1 or "n" accordingly.
Your computer will then copy the archived file into its memory and ask you to insert your blank disk. It will proceed to format the disk, and will then de-crunch the archived file onto your blank disk.
Once this has been done you can simply reboot your machine with the disk which contains the dearchived program on it and then use the program as instructed in the CoverDisk pages.
Note that if you have a Workbench 2 or upward machine you must boot with the CoverDisk write- enabled to perform the dearchiving process, Workbench 3 If you have a Workbench 3 machine, don’t worry - most if not all of the programs on the CoverDisk will work on your machines.
If the program is specifically designed to work with Workbench 3 then you may have to copy the program to your hard drive or Workbench disk using the process described earlier on this page.

0773 836781 Department rAtwi New Street • Alfreton Derbyshire • DE55 7BI Fax: 0773 831040 SORDID The tabloid press have, of course, squeezed every last drop from the sordid tale. After the epilepsy saga (computer games have since been cleared of any link with the inducement of epileptic fits), our cousins in the console sector are now facing a Monopolies and Mergers Commission inquiry into game prices.
The whole porn debate is adding to what is perceived to be the computer industry's image problem in the eyes of the public, or at least in the eyes of the press who purport to reflect public opinion.
In order to engage in any meaningful discussion of the phenomena and how it can be tackled, it is necessary to have a definition of pornography. As is often the case with definitions, here is where the problems start.
We all know pornography when we see it. Anything concerning itself with explicit sex scenes involving children is deemed by virtually everyone as being highly pom »- Pornography has enjoyed a new surge of public outrage of late, due to its apparent transference from the realm of the dodgy, under-the- counter video peddlers to the hi-tech world of computers, modems and digital telephone lines.
Although video is and looks set to be the main outlet for dubious material of this kind for at least the foreseeable future, the fact that digital, computer-based pornographic images and sequences are being discovered much more frequently is undeniable.
The situation was brought to a head recently with the uncovering of computer- doctored images depicting children in pornographic poses; they were actually the bodies of (young) adults with pictures of children's facial features superimposed onto them to get around the law.
It is easy to work out why such material is cropping up more and more regularly - because, unlike pornographic magazines, computer porn can be duplicated with absolutely no loss of quality, so every time a copy is given to someone else, the number of copies in circulation is simultaneously increased.
Graphic and nothing short of disgusting.
Animals don't fare much better, and three or more in a bed, as well as gay lesbian sex scenes, are probably next in terms of outrage value.
Moving on, we have hard porn involving one man and one woman, followed by soft porn involving the same, then Penthouse-style soft pom and finally Page 3-type models wearing smiles and bikinis.
The point is that pornography can mean different things to different people.
Something which a middle-aged man finds acceptable will probably be far from so when presented to a 12-year-old child.
So for the sake of our argument, let’s accept two definitions of pornography. The first is that it is material valued for its erotic rather than its artistic merits. The second is the definition which the law chooses to use, which is that pornography is material deemed likely to corrupt the person viewing it.
This last point is important, because it means the Director of Public Prosecutions must decide in each individual case whether the severity of the material is likely to comipt the individual(s) supplied with that material.
We've already established that more people are viewing computer porn. The problem is that due to the medium upon ...a rapid increase in the number of minors viewing this material which it lives, this rapid increase in the amount of pornography around includes an even more rapid increase in the number of minors viewing the material.
And with children being the group usually deemed most likely to be rupted by sex-based images I sequences, we can understand whjrl suddenly seem to have a computer p crisis on our hands.
The actual material does cover all bi From PD disks put together by spotty 4 lescents with healthy sexual desires bu appealing way of satiating them, ca things like "Girls" and usually contaa nothing more offensive than Baywatd the legfllly-on-sale Lovers Guide (only sale to adults, whom it is deemed it likely to corrupt) to highly dubious letin boards on the continent contaii images of sex with dogs and worse, whole range has been digitised and is n It It includes "interactive" soft- v tor instance waggling the joy* i wncrofe the speed of intercourse for r v.»i couple on the screen, is

LM whereas most minors have in the I hem exposed (usually at school) to If. Softcore porn which is if not
i. then grudgingly tolerated by . New, computer-based methods of
ution have led not only to more i seeing porn, but to that pom
; much more hardcore than ever A chronology of pornography
Images can be converted from maga- 1950 60S - Pornography is
seen m printed form, both in "soft' legal publications and
illegal, usually imported, magazines whose contents - often
involving children and animals, but always some form of
explicit sexual act - are defined as "hardcore” pom.
1959 - Obscene Publications Act makes it a crime to distribute such matenal to those it is likely to corrupt.
1960s - The emergence of cine-filmed pornography brings it to a wider audience, and for the first time moving images become a player in the field.
Mid-1970s - Advances in video technology lead to pom being distributed on videotape. With this development, easily distributed motion pornography becomes a reality, and video pom is still perceived as the single largest problem area.
1980s - As computer technology gathers pace, porn dis- playable using these new machines appears. The emergence of bulletin boards (BBSs) where porn can be "downloaderf from a remote base into a home computer, makes access to it simpler than ever. Disk-based pom becomes a reality.
1990s - Continually improving graphics, file suppression techniques. Disk storage capacities and other hardware improve both the methods of distribution and the quality of porn on offer.
Zines to computer data with a scanner "grabbed" from video into a computer's memory, with the use of a simple animation viewer even a computer as f accessible as the Amiga is quite K capable of showing short, detailed sexual animations.
And the storage capacity of one CD (as the Lover's i Guide demonstrates) is K mind-bogglingly large.
Once in a computer format, data is usually made available to users via bulletin boards, or BBSs. Basically all you need to set up a BBS is a computer, a modem, and a very, very large hard drive to store all of the pictures on. Your "customers" then simply telephone your modem,‘access what they require and download it into their machines via the telephone.
Equally, many BBSs have an upload facility, whereby the user can send their favourite pictures to the BBSs for other users fo access.
In Our investigations we discovered a number of pornography-peddling BBSs in places as far apart as Holland, the USA and Noway. With names like Bombs BBS and Tiger BBS, they advertise within their underground network, so it is very likely that a user who has found one of these BBSs will know the numbers to access many more.
Outrageously, Banse BBS in Holland, which was exposed on investigating journalist Roger Cook's The Cook Report television programme, was still running at the time of writing. In the past, public domain libraries have also been the source of computer pom.
Since some well-publicised prosecutions over the last two years, the PD porn problem has seemed to die down, in Britain at least, with only the very mild, previously-mentioned "Cirls"-type of disk surviving the application of the law.
To make it quite clear how sophisticated images sent along phone lines are becoming, one British police force have a 5Mb, one-minute movie in better-than-broadcast quality, pulled down a telephone line by them from the States.
This particular sequence was for the PC and would not work on the Amiga, but we all know the Amiga's abilities when compared to those of an average PC, so it must be obvious that such stuff is equally as likely to appear on the Amiga.
Another fact which does nothing to help prevent the spread of porn is the transfer- J With computer porn the current media darling, Phil Morse investigates a trade which is increasingly making the switch from illicit videos to the computer screen one W v)

files across computer platforms.
While the spread of, for argument's sake, piracy is limited to the computer platform the game was originally released for - a pirate copy of Lemmings for the PC is no good for your Amiga, for instance - standard picture files can be read on most modern computers, regardless of the machine they originally came from.
With just a modem, a phone number and a modicum of computing experience, anybody can download such porn.
Children are often more computer literate than their parents nowadays, and at increasingly younger ages, which is a particular cause for concern.
And anyway, whereas in the past youngsters may have "found" magazines hidden by fathers or elder brothers, now they can "find" images stored on hard disks or CD-ROMS, such as the Lover's Guide and Virtual Valerie CD products - both of which are quite legal for adults to buy.
CIRCULATION Once a child has got this far, it is reasonable to assume that they will manage to put the images onto a floppy disk or two to take to school for adoring friends to duplicate. Thus dozens of copies, which in turn will be copied, are put into circulation from one initial input into the system from a BBS or other source.
Not surprisingly, the police have encountered several pressing problems in attempting to counter this situation. They must have fully trained staff who are quite capable of conversing across the various I anp computer platforms, and have the technical knowledge necessary to do everything the porn merchants can do with their computers.
They also need investment in the equipment which will allow their trained staff to do the above, and in many cases it's investment that has to begin literally from scratch.
One thing which has changed in favour of the anti-pom lobby in the past year is the level of public awareness. Few police forces have pom far from the top of their agendas nowadays, whereas barely a year ago most forces weren't even aware of the problem, let alone equipped to do any* thing about it.
But even with a fully-trained staff and up-to-date equipment, there are still major problems for anybody trying to regulate the transmission of such material. Until

In* U.naga Wi S1 qnp police appear to be so slack and or pow
erless to stop it that sick celluloid seems to leave the place
at a phenomenal rate, bound for digitising and transmission
across Europe and the USA.
And who is policing the telephone lines in and out of the UK? Well, ignoring conspiratorial theories that big brother knows everything and we're all being bugged, it seems obvious that nobody has the time or manpower to police everything that enters the UK by electronic means - we're not going to see Telephone Customs in the near future.
Certainly it's out of the jurisdiction and scope of the telephone watchdog bodies OFTELand ICST15.
It is, actually, technically illegal to recently, Radio Luxembourg flouted British broadcasting laws by transmitting pro* grammes in English, to the UK, from Luxembourg, where they were set up legally. Something deemed illegal in Britain can, therefore be perfectly legal somewhere else.
The age of consent laws for females is a point in hand: while it's IS in the States, it falls to 16 in the UK, 15 in Denmark and as low as 12 in some places.
In Bangkok it scarcely matters whether some of the shocking acts of debauchery which go on there are legal or not; the It is technically illegal to import pornographic material import pornographic material from couim tries where it is legal into the UK, but has never been tested in the courts, due no small part to the problems outlined above - plus, if someone is caught with such material in the UK there are other laws which they would be prosecuted under.
Looking at the Amiga in particular, things are unfortunately getting worse. In the past, the Amiga has not been able to.
Match the Pcs and Macs of this world either graphically or in CPU speed (thi overall speed of operation is slower).
Basically, the Amiga has not had enough power to handle the really realtf* tic and complex, and thus the real potentially corrupting, pornography.
Unfortunately, with the new base-lev Amiga, the A 12(H), equipped with moral standard memory, better graphics and ¦ faster processor, the most popular SC hook kid’s computer just grew up. The ranpl and accessibility of pornography U Amiga-owning minors has always bee* greater than other computers; now tht gap in the scope and quality of such poti is being considerably narrowed too.
Let's throw in the problem that BBS have quite often got absolutely no idea m to who is accessing their systems, and S can make no judgement as to whether thfl material they are supplying is "likely corrupt" the viewer, and we can see tlud there are very large problems involved any attempts to control this phenomena So what is being done? To start wi theres a considerable tightening of law, which is going on at the time of wrtfl ing and looks set to strengthen thj armoury of the police against the p dlers.

Amiga Computing March 1994 lerths back, John Major spoke in his Ifcunous "back to basics" speech of a bthtening of the Criminal Justice Bill, is set to go through the House of ercU the time of writing, to specifi- outlaw the type of doctored images t children spoken of earlier.
Michael Howard outlined the govem- ¦mt’s position quite clearly at the end of member last year: sc
• Tough I Tender-minded?
• Emotionally Stable?
• Extrovert or Introvert?
• A Giver ora Taker?
• Sexually Satisfied?
• Sexually Driven?
'New technology continually presents ¦r challenges to the law. I am deter- Hned the law should keep pace with Mm and 1 will not hesitate to act when- tr those who degrade children find means of peddling this material."
But are you - »Confident - or Not?

He goes on: "We must send the dear- possible signal to pornographers that activities will not be tolerated. It is to take tough measures at the outset t are to succeed in stamping out this trade."

Irt with, g of the of writ- ien the he ped- e a few | This tightening of legislation will, if it becomes law, affect video pornogra- too, which will help the computer cause a little by attacking one of its sources of material.
One law which has not been tested vet Ihe courts, due to the suitability of the :ene Publications Act for this pur- n the past, is the 'mmunications Act (1984). Tucked iV in Section 3, Subsection 41, if states people who transmit obscene mate- eummit the offence of using the telenetworks to do so. This offence soon become punishable by up to months of imprisonment.
LEGISLATION I* could prove to be a particularly use- piece of legislation for the police, as Id they come across a British BBS ying pornographic material but which it could be construed is table for adult viewing, a prosecu- could still be successfully executed the grounds of the phone lines being for its transmission.
While this might smell a little of Big r, if children are accessing pomo- iic BBSs, it's a welcome method of ig those sources down and deter- them from starting up again.
Other proposed changes to the law j-fcclude a beefing up of the powers panted to the police under the Obscene pWiCations Act; such crimes now carrv mr threat of arrest for those involved, Vd are classed as serious arrestable ¦fcflCes. Section 1 .offences under the Protection of Children Act 1978 are now also dealable with bv arrest, and the wording of the relevant sections of the act has been changed in order to clarify the position and assure complete coverage of computer-generated images. These amendments too should shortly become law.
But there's more to dealing with a problem as complex and ingrained as this one than just a tightening of the law - after all, we've seen the difficulties the police have to overcome to apply laws.
Although the new legislation should make things easier, other approaches are vital too, Sgt John Ashley, of Greater Manchester Police's Obscene Publications department, acknowledges the increase in public awareness as opening a number of paths for fighting porn, or at least clearing the brambles and nettles from a few overgrown ones Public awareness always leads to more self-policing: it’s easier to get away with something when the public at large have no clue as to what exactly it is you're getting away with. As the porn underground becomes more exposed, people will become more reluctant
to engage in such activities.
Also, says Sgt Ashley, this public awareness will convince those people who know nothing about their childrens' computers to learn the basics, and those 4 The best way to fight computer porn is to educate parents struggling to get to grips with the technology will at least realise that they should learn how to check for such material on their own their childrens' machines.
And, by making aware the parents and educationalists who have, in the past, also been oblivious to the extent of this rapidly growing problem, the num- her one battle against many crimes - education - can begin to play its part too.
"The publicity in the media and public interest is increasing public awareness," says Sgt Ashley, "but it'll probably make our jobs harder - people are now aware that we are doing this work."
But whether this increased exposure of the problem is a good or bad thing is academic. The computer porn "scandal" is out, and it remains to be seen how effective the new laws will be. As Sgt Ashley says: "The best way to fight computer porn is to educate .
Parents." M jpqi m fT_ frnnTrWl Cover QirC- STRIP POKER F EATU R EI To the future... As computer technology becomes more and more sophisticated, so the quality of the material available and the ease of distribution will improve.
The amazing graphical resolution of the new generation of home computers, such as the AGA Amigas.
Means that better-than-broadcast quality graphics are becoming a reality.
Such machines contain faster processors (it's a big leap from the A500's 68000 to the A1200's 68020 and the A4000's -030s and -040s), demand better monitors and require more memory, all of which make them far more capable of handling a large number of high quality graphical images with ease.
CRAMMED As data compression techniques become more and more sophisticated, so larger and higher quality files will be crammed onto disks.
And when high density disks - which can hold twice the data of the normal-density variety currently dominant - become the norm, so the problem will become even more acute.
Modem technology has leapt forward an incredible amount in the last few years From the initial ability to transfer what then seemed like a staggering 300 bytes a second along a phone line, nowadays it has recently become possible to buy I modems which can transmit at 19,200 baud or above - an increase of 6,400 per cent!
SECONDS Putting it another way. A picture which would take ten minutes to download on a 300 baud modem would take seconds on a modern model. And that's before the data compression techniques have been take into account.. As CD-ROM technology becomes established, the ability to record full- length. Film-quality pornographic sequences onto CD for viewing and manipulation by computer will also become a reality - and as with all j digital media. CD-ROMs don't ' degrade.
Already, "movies' have appeared on the PC platform. With CD-based products like the soft porn Virtual jj Valerie and the Lovers' Guide I appearing, the chances of I similar products appearing on the underground are high, and j the potential content matter of those I products depressingly predictable.

One of the prime behind the success of Amiga in Hollywood i British guy called Thornton. He began using Lightwave portion of the Toaster to create special replace the miniature models tionallv used to bring planets to the screen.
We spoke to Ron at his California and asked him about the Babylon 5 and movie madness in tainment capital of the world.
LEADING Anyone who reads Amiga watches TV can't fail to be aware work of Ron Thornton. He was a special effects man and model maker in UK on cult BBC shows like Doctor Blake's 7, a number of hot sci-fi movies Terminator 2, and now is the creator at visual effects for the Emmy award sci-fi TV show, Babylon 5, soon to be on Channel 4.
But Ron wasn't always a special Few people would deny the impact of the Amiga in the world of film and video. Even in the UK where we have no Video Toasters, Amigas are still welcome in the country’s editing suites as all-purpose graphics computers.
But it is in Tinseltown, aka Hollywood, California, where the Amiga is really making itself known. If the Amiga was an actor, you could write a review of its career like so: "Bom in 1984, Amiga grew up in California, but it was in Europe where his appeal really kicked off. Although famous for his earlier funnier entertainments like Zool and lemmings, he yearned to get back to the serious film making and graphic arts of his youth.
"Ray-tracing was to be a formative influence, and it was Ray in fact who gave him a part in almost every top-notch special effects film of the late 80s and early 90s. Before the century came to a close, Amiga was getting the Oscar on a regular basis and was in Hollywood to stay..." Admittedly the success of the Amiga in the US is based almost entirely on the Video Toaster by NewTek, but this is not to pul down the Amiga at all.
A lot of the usability, the hotness of a product, is down to indefinable things like look and feel. The Amiga is a friendly machine, and Phil South talks to Foundation Imaging’s Ron Thornton about life in Hollywood with his Amiga, and the success of Babylon 5 IHZ. He got his start after Ire quit his job « flight despatcher at Gatwick airport tout any idea of what he was going to tence. You don’t end up doing miniature work on The Addams Family and Terminator 2 without having some kind of track record, and turning in some quality work.
He started out by reading as much as he could about the subject of special effects, and also some magazines which were out at the time which covered the topic.
"Cinemagie had just come out, and there was Starlog which used to give a lot
* 1 was just bored. 1 didn't have any to what sort of job I would
like to do.
Ri then about that time I went with some ¦ds to see the film Alien, which had just ¦r out, and it hit me: Someone actually 9» for people to make all the models and and stuff!"
Igazines are of ti ; a leadu aker in tl rr Who ai novies 111 ator of tl xl winni to be ain So he resolved to get a job in the film ¦ness doing just that. He didn't actually m have any professional model-making prop-making experience, "other than the ml Airfix kits as a kid kind of thing."
But soon he was in the film business.
Mously it wasn't that easy. Thinking of ridea was the first step, but between that ¦tt and doing props and miniatures for wa was a lot of hard work and persis- 4 few ot the j running Lightwave iequentes from Babylon S. and It i oil Ron t doing better coverage in those days to techniques and effects and things, There would be close-up photographs in there of what people were doing, and 1 kind of got the hang of it from that, "I bought the odd kit, typical sci-fi models just to have a look at them to see what came through the kit process. I got the Millennium Falcon kit and I started spot
ting all these tank parts on it, and I thought 'Aha! I can see how this all works'."
But model making was only half the story. The secret of good models is the painting and surface detail.
"A lot of my painting techniques were taught to me by Martin Bauer and Bill Pearson, who were two incredibly talented model makers, who did everything from Aim to Oulland and Flash Gordon. Martin Bauer used to be the chief model maker on S Mff 1993."

n:V* j : Angeles, so dose enough to Hollywood but far enough
away from LA. "We're between the desert and a mountain range."
Ron ended up there in the middle of nowhere in the USA after a series of BBC cutbacks. "It got to September of 1984 and I was doing various freelance work for BBC shows, and the head of the visual effects department at the BBC sent this memo that said that they couldn't do any more sub-contracting. There was no work around so I had to start working on my contacts over here in the USA."
How did he go about gathering contacts in Hollywood? The answer was simply that he wasn't actually just going over there cold and saying "giz a job" - he'd been on a tour of the main effects houses a few years before and had picked up some contacts then.
"The first job I did for Dr Who made me a small profit, and I used the proceeds to take a trip to California. I called up all the places over here that did effects and would just go and see them.
"Those people would give me the names and numbers of people at another place, and so it went cm, It was great, there Hollywood... was were I really caught the hug was me with my first job and I was walking around the places where they made Bud Rogers, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars... it was very, very cool. That was where 1 really caught the bug."
And picked up a lot of very useful names for the old Filofax, eh? It didn't hurt that Ron was working on Dr Who of course, which gave him a bit of an "in", but still you have to want Something pretty badly to travel half the way around the world on spec. So, what's Ron Thornton's idea of the best bit of computer graphics in the movies in recent years? Ron's answer is predictable enough.
"The stuff in Jurassic Park, without question. I find it hard to think of anything that could beat that. It's just perfect. But then for $ 15 million it should be!"
Ron's very clear on what makes good computer FX and it's not a lot to do with computers. "The people who did it are film makers, not computer graphics people. They've got a great film 'eye'.
"Their compositing is just superb, their motion tracking, and just the general matching of effects to live footage is superb. 1 think they're an absolute shoo- in for the Oscars this year, and no mistake."
How long will it be before we can do things like Jurassic Pad on the desktop?
Can it ever be done? "It can be done now.
But you’ve got to really work at it." What do you put into the gap vacated by the 15 ?
Million spans, when it's just you, a rainy Saturday, an Amiga 2000 and a 3D program? "Hard work, basically. Yeah really, It’s not so much the 3D considerations but lining up shots and matteing the effects with the action. That and being very skilled at it. These people are very good at their jobs."
OK so we're not film makers here at AC, but we are big 3D fans, so we had to ask does Ron have any professional hints for would-be computer graphics special effects men of the future?
"Attention to detail. It's easy to create shapes and render them, but you have to observe the smallest details and be very critical. That and making sure that you're very good at it."
And when do you stop fiddling about with the details, and when is a model finished? "I can't say I've ever been 100 per cent happy with any models I've ever made. You have to keep looking at your models and saying to yourself how can I make this better? How can I make it more real?” That means that you must edit and alter the model and make sure it's as perfect as it can be before you can ever say it’s finished.
EXCRUCIATING Making a shape and lighting it in five minutes isn’t how it’s done. It's this excruciating attention to detail which has earned Ron all the plaudits and critical acclaim that he has over his career in film.
"One of the be«4 things to do as well is get go and get yourself a lot of reference material. If you're doing a sci-fi type model, either rent yourself a load of sci-fi videos, or pick up books from somewhere like Forbidden Planet, where you can look at what models reallv look like, see what textures are on them and try and duplicate them.
"Go and rent a bunch of videotapes of Thundffbirds. Don't just sit around and have fun with it, really look at it carefully because some of the model making in that show was just fantastic, and you can leam a lot about ageing and dirtying down from that."
Of all the models and effects Ron has done over the years, what are his favourites? "Most of the models I’ve made I'm not particularly proud of, although the Scorpio was a nice model, and they gave me a lot of leeway in the design, detail and textures on it. And it really could stand up to an awful lot."
The Scorpio, of course, was the space ship in which Blake's 7 did their spacefaring, after the original ship The Liberator was blown to bits in the penultimate series.
Owners of the recent Blake's 7 videos will of course be aware that the model is very closely detailed, and can stand some quite dose-up shots.
“When I compared it to some of the models over here it was actually better, which really made me feel good about it I did put a huge amount of time into it. 1 think if you calculated how much I got per hour for working on that ship it would probably work out at about £2 an hour, if that. Fifty pence more like. 1 was working about 14 to 15 hours a day on that thing."
Ron's favourite model on the Babylon 5 show is in fact the Star Fury, the Babylon 5 fighter. "It's very different in the way that it looks. It's just this chunky, ugly looking thing, but it does have a certain beauty to it... it's sort of like Thunderbird 2, a big old ugly thing.
"It was the same sort of philosophy, I didn't want them to be graceful, just utilitarian. Built like a brick shithouse. Whereas all the aliens have all these beautiful ships.
"The animation on these ships is phenomenal. Ever)' time a ship moves it's got to blow a thruster, so if a ship banks you’ve got to hit the top right and bottom left thruster, so that it would be able to I roll, "Then to stop it rolling you have to do the opposite. So there are loads and loads of animation envelopes, ramping up the flame, ramping up the light, then ramping it back down again.
"There's one scene that I did for the first episode called 'Midnight on the Firing Line' and it was just to establish the Star Furies going into battle.
I And these ships are everywhere, tumbling end over end, some tracking another ship that's flying by, and at the same time the camera is rotating about 270 degrees, so you just get this whole feeling of vertigo. There isn't an up or a down, and you don't know which way you’re going."
With so many ships to design, doesn’t Ron ever run out of ideas? Where do the ideas come from then? "Everywhere.
Sometimes from vegetables, there are quite a few ships that are based on food, just for the hell of it.
"The Vorlon ships are inspired by garlic, of all things. Looking at books of deep sea creatures, you look at all of these forms and you grab something and try it. It's a lot easier to do that in a computer.
SHORT CUTS "To efficiently make a space ship as a model, a miniature, you've got to take a lot of short cuts. You have to do stuff like 'kit bashing', pulling pieces of detail out of tank kits, otherwise you just spend forever making it.
“And if I wanted to do something unusual like a crustacean. I'd have to start sculpting or moulding crab shells. But in the computer realm it's quite a lot easier."
As well as modelling and the ability to make and edit shapes easily, techniques can be developed which give your objects in 3D more life and realism.
"It's not just the shape and colouring of an object. It's all in the textures. It's all in the paint job, it always is, even if you're building real model spaceships, “When you build it you'll spray it with primer, and it'll look like shit. But when you actually start to age it and dirty it down a bit of painting, then it begins to show. And that's what separates good computer graphics from bad, ’computcry'-looking graphics."
When Foundation have been doing big shots for Babylon 5 with a large number of ships, sometimes in the hundreds, generic textures are used to give the ships a qp 'look'. But this isn't the best way to do iL “An object can look just OK when | use a sort of generic texture on it, but] very best models are made with dtl textures for all the surfaces. And dd labour over a paint package to make g textures.
"A good example would be grass, i What would you do in a paint packa] get that texture? If you just photograph and digitise it you just get a great look, t to anything and everything for y material."
One of Ron’s favourite technique* based on a neat trick using Lightwad whereby a custom-drawn image, like fcq plates for example, Is mapped onto the face of the object twice, once as the diffu map and again using the same image, specularity map.
This means that the plates in the hull only have a different shade based on general colouring of the ship, but some 1 a different specular value, affecting the i they reflect light.
This adds a lot of surface detail action on the surface of the model light plays across it, and makes the look more real. Real objects don’t reflq light evenly, so why should comp models?
What about the future for Found Imaging? "We re doing some tests for a ¦ v ersion of Dan Dare, which is looking great. It'll be really good if it comes off."
The film is in the works and as is the with these things may or may not get for a few years, but Foundation are e. the best choice for the spaceship effi especially with Ron's taste in spaceships.
For example, when Babylon 5 was created, Ron wanted a look more I Thunderbirds or other Gerry Andeip shows, where the ships were colourful I new looking rather than that awful used look that Star Wars brought into vogue.
"The movie's being written by Tdj Jones of Monty Python and there's a 1 very good people involved in it. It be fantastic."
So where is computer imaging in mo* and TV going? What are the cxtreme»| which we can go in this field?
"You'll get a lot more visual effects you'll get more science-fiction stuff. At moment we're working on a project wM is the nearest thing you'd get to a TV' sen of Jurassic Park but it's not the same, "A lot of very complicated stuff til you'd never be able to get into before n* becomes actually quite easy, It takes abaq ten minutes to do a space ship shot now you haven't got the space ship, it only taid you about two or three hours to build one] "And we have a lot of pre-existing tures, so when you're creating somi you can call up from the library some which will look good."
T The Babylon 5 pilot film is out on video f all good video stores, and the series begins first run on Channel 4 some time in the sect quarter of this year.

IREN OFTWARE Wilton House, Bury Rd, Radcliffe, Manchester M26 9UR England GRAPHICS Until now, if you wanted the ability to grab a video image in 24-bits (that's over 16 million colours, folks) you would have had to pay a princely sum tor the privilege, Enter Rombo, one of the pioneers of audio and video digitising products, and their Vidi Amiga 24RT (hereafter referred to as VA24).
Tor a reasonable £299. You can now experience the higher image quality which 24- bits gives you, with the added bonus of being able to do away with having to pause your video in order to get a stable image.
As well as the impressive hardware contained in the surprisingly small cartridge, VA24 also includes pretty neat editing software featuring a collection of powerful image processing tools.
The cartridge itself includes two RCA- type video inputs and an S-Video input. The advantages of these multiple inputs is that you can attach say, two VCRs in the RCA inputs and a camcorder in the 5-Video input.
You can then simply and conveniently select the video source you want to grab from within the VA24 software by simply clicking on a button.
VA24 automatically detects the type of video signal it is receiving (PAL, NTSC or SECAM) and adapts accordingly.
As hinted at earlier, because of the speed with which VA24 can grab an image, there is no need to pause your video or have your video camera absolutely still.
Such speed is achieved through the combination of two very fast analogue to digital converters and 1Mb of onboard memory within the cartridge.
The two converters read the anal 4 video signal, converting it to the digital ( required by the 1 Mb memory, into whkftfl is subsequently stored.
The only time-consuming part ocC f once VA24 has "read" the video image, lfl image data then has to be transferred to Amiga’s RAM.
The VA24 cartridge is connected to Amiga through its parallel port, This r • i only capable of a data transfer ratefl approximately 20l)k per second. Once trjfl ferred, the pictures also have to be mixed M create the final full colour image.
So depending on the number of colc | and the resolution of the image you hifl grabbed, this transfer and mixing r 4 can take a little time. From clicking on Darren Evans gets to grips with Vidi Amiga 24RT, the latest 24-bit real-time video digitiser from Rombo shind Hardware Control r Jvidti I Jlifet 2 ¦ Lc-Ses Won-latfrlacH JmliJr gig.

rabber One problem with the Vldl Amiga 24RT Is that with the cartridge plugged In, the serial port Is obscured. Not a disaster, but a problem all the same button to the final displayed image, a |4B x 512 HamH image took approximately 52 seconds on an A1200 with 4Mb RAM
* *rade.
The modes supported by VA24 range «n 320 x 200 to 1,200 x 512 (1,472 x 576 in [ mncan) in colours from two to Ham8.
The screen modes av ailable are obviously dependant on the type of Amiga you have.
VA24 works on all Amigas barring the A500,
• rrefore only screen modes such as hi-res HamH are available on
AGA machines such
• the A1200. Also, the manual states that at htet 2Mb is
required. Ideally, you will need an additional Fast RAM upgrade
of at tat 2Mb or more to get the most from VA24.
VA24 will also automatically default to 16 pry level grabbing on a non-AGA machine.
Having grabbed and mixed your image to your chosen screen mode, you can then save iw file by simply clicking on the save button.
Before you do that however, you also have some pretty good image processing and editing features at your fingertips.
Clicking on the Edit button will take you to t* VA24 editor. There are 24 image processing functions including emboss, sharpen, and thev can be used to improve or completely change the image. Some of them do require a lot of memory though, especially when processing hi-res or super hi-res images. You can also cut and paste sections of an image one from area or image to another Some of the image processing functions are single operations, whereas other, more complicated ones require you to first enter some parameters. They also differ in the amount of time required to process.
Animation of a number of frames can tv achieved through the use of the Carousel editor. Here, you can load a number of images into memory and then select and edit a range of specified frames.
You can also save out a range of frames as an ANIM file. You can also click on the Play button to see the frames which have been selected play as an animation.
The main portion of the screen is a display showing up to 12 eighth-size images which are in memory. Selecting a single or range of these images is done by simply clicking on the appropriate box, Each box is also numbered.
There are also editing buttons for deleting, moving and clearing specified frames, Overall, the VA24 software works very well. It has lots of features and functions your Image manipulating controls lo processing image array of and useful impressive some pretty MMB The Idltor which allow total and easy control over the hardware in the cartridge.
Unlike other digitisers, there are also no external image controls, such as brightness, colour and contrast, on the cartridge. All these are available within the software.
The quality of images you can get from VA24 is very good indeed. However, something to be aware of if you are intending to go out and buy VA24 is the tvpe of video connections the video source you intend to use has.
VA24 goes some way to solve the problem by providing both a dual RCA composite video inputs as well as the S-Video socket, which gives a much higher quality image with no problems of colour saturation and bleeding.
These two types should allow you to connect the majority of cameras or VCRs without the need for extra cables. The VA24 package even includes a composite and 5-Video cable so you can get up and running straight away.
However, they are a little tw short for my liking and you may wish to buy longer cables for your needs.
The only time you will need to buy extra cables is if your video source uses BNC or other video connectors- Rombo can help you out buy supplying you with the necessary cable at extra cost, or you can just pop down to the local hi-fi video store and ask for one there.
Besides being great fun to use, VA24 can be put (o some useful functions. For instance, if you like to dabble in desktop publishing, you can use VA24 as a very good alternative to a scanner.
All you require is a tripod and some decent lights and you have a much more versatile method of importing your own images into your DTP documents, be they mono or full colour.
VA24 is easy to use, easy to set up and with a reasonable price tag of Q90, a very good buy.

walls, for those of us in the dark, are those massive screens that dominate large pop concerts «rd te like. The footballing industry has w decided to jump on to the good idea Mndwagon, with Wolverhampton Wanderers FC investing in two hpandaview screens for their Molineux Radium which are the largest permanent lutdoor "video wall" installations in Europe.
KIT Each is virtually the size of a double lecker bus, with the intention being that hev will offer the most comprehensive Bltertainment available at any outdoor tadium.
These are bold claims indeed, so with Cynicism well in hand, 1 travelled down to he home of the Wanderers to find out if see- Rg really was believing... The first thing that hits you is the sheer Icale of the first Expandaview video wall, rs nearly 30 foot in height and width, with ke second one - construction of which larted in February - being constructed to ¦me dimensions.
Designed and manufactured by CD Meractive, specialists in multimedia prod- ids, the walls are constructed from 256 indi- ridual 21 in monitors into a 16 x 16 frame irith a single input lead and increased power cables for the sheer energy needed to nit.
Each of these monitors can be individu- % removed, replaced (useful for when a ingle Teen goes on the blink) or arranged ¦ a variety of combinations from thin hori- fental strip to vertical displays, designed to bit your exact requirements.
ABELS What actually appears on the screen is bsplaved created by an Amiga 4000 and Amiga 1200 connected to each other by their respective serial ports. Using software developed by Amiga-specialising company Optonica Ltd, the two machines are the electronic heart of the video wall.
As Lee Gibson of Optonica is happy to point out: "The Amiga is very geared towards the video environment... with fast, colour graphics and video-compatible signals."
The software comprises of two programs, Studio VrIP and Superbowl. Studio VII5 is a full-blown production and sequencing pre- sentation system. With it, and a rostrum camera, the club can pul together their own sequences for local advertisers and other events.
During Hie football matches themselves.
Superbowl is brought in to play. Designed specifically for sporting events, especially football, it includes the ability' to produce scoreboards, scrolling messages, screen docks, countdowns, stat attacks (statistics) and results from other games during half time. One of the package's strongest fea- The graphics may look like they're out of the quit show Catchphrue, but according to research, they're the most effective for fan participation. In this example, a player has to be treated due to Injury tures is the set of 40 different animations that can be used at the touch of a key so when a
goal is scored, a colourful, smooth anim plays instead of the old hat "Goal!"
Flashing on and off in bold lettering.
The process of running the video wall starts before a single ball has even been kicked. The A4QQ0, using Studio VIP, produces adverts and match details as the crowd arrives. Once the game is underway, the A4000 flicks over to generate the realtime video images that are being pumped onto the screen at the other end.
The actual images are provided either by two VCRs, containing relevant footage such as Studio VIP sequences, or the six ground- level cameras placed at various points in the stadium for live coverage. There is aLso a direct feed from the TV gantry for linking up with television cameras.
In the meantime, the A1200 runs the Superbowl software for the animations and other graphics effects- On top of all this, the PA system can he used by the Amigas too, offering the club a chance to present a full audio-visual experience to its fans.
This all adds up to an impressive piece of modem technology that, at the end of the day, is intended to get more bums on seats and give audiences an experience that'll leave them wanting to come back for more.
From where I’m sitting in the terraces, it looks like it'll work as well.

The importance of a monitor for all types of productivity work - if only to avoid eve strain - is easily understood, but most of us assume blank looks when someone starts talking about bandwidths, raster scans, and refresh rates.
The AB Whether we like it or not, this seemingly simple peripheral with its straightforward function has a complexity to match its importance, and as the Amiga has more screen modes than most machines, confusion is easily sown.
However, the technology of the monitor is more simple than we have made it, and can be traced back over a century.
At the heart of the monitor lies the CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) This device consists of a sealed glass chamber, containing a vacuum. In 1870, Sir William Crookes investigated electrical discharges down Commodore 1940 1 Designed with the A1200 and A4000 range in mind, the 1940 and 1942 monitors are in fact tri-sync monitors. In appearance, they are very similar to the 1084st monitor and have the bonus of having a stereo amplifier, which is an improvement on the 1084st.
Both 1940 and 1942 are identical with the exception of the 1940 having a dot pitch of 0.39mm and the 1942. 0.28mm. Picture quality on the 1940 is little better than the 1084st. And on the 1942 model, it is excellent. All the controls are at the front of this monitor, which makes it easier to operate.
Both monitors function suitably with the AGA chipset.

Cathode ray tubes to you, and if you didn’t know that, read on as Wilf Rees reveals the secret world of the monitor highly evacuated tubes (called Crookes tubes).
This electrical discharge was named the cathode ray, as it was emitted from the cathode. In actual fact, it is a stream of electrons being accelerated to a third of the speed of light. This research later gave way to the development of the cathode ray tube.
Early cathode ray tubes were able to produce an image of a Maltese cross on the screen, as this served as an anode. The electrons would be accelerated due to the massive electrical potential difference, which is about 30,000 volts.
Thev would strike the screen, which was covered in a layer of phosphor, and have their kinetic energy converted into visible light. Naturally, particles as light as electrons would be deflected and the beam would dissipate if they collided with much more massive air molecule air evacuation inside the CRT required.
It was later discovered that magnrt affected the flow of electrons (if yo ever placed a magnet over a TV screen ] will know, but do not try this!) ByJ arrangement of electromagnets it is | ble to deflect the electrons in the in beam in a convergent manner, so I can be focused to a point.
PHOSPHOR The entire beam can be shifted byj arrangement of X and Y plates, wl deflect the beam in their axes res tively. The ability to create a point on j phosphor screen that could be mo gave way to the invention of the cat!
Ray oscilloscope.
The strength of the magnetic field i the X and Y plates is proportional to I total deflection. Using this apparatus j possible to display a graphical repri tation of a waveform, with the X pli set to a pre-defined frequency of de tion. Considering it is possible to vary I MONITORS!
The RGB colour monitor The monitor works in a similar way to a television in that the image is formed by a beam of electrons which strike a phosphorescent screen which then emits visible Ight. In a colour monitor beams are fired from three electron guns, one for each of f»e primary colours. Any desired colour can be diplayed by combinations of these colours, varying the intensity of the electron beams enables the desired hues to be achieved.
To form a picture on the screen a dot scans rapidly across the screen in a series mes called a raster, the dot varies in intensity and colour as it moves, building
- o the picture. The phosphor on the screen continues to glow
briefly after the dot "is left it. A phenomenon called
persistence, which fools the human eye into seeng a complete
picture on the screen rather than just a moving dot. Once the
dot has reached the bottom of the screen it flashes back to the
top and starts
• canning across again. The dot scans across the whole screen
about 60 times a second.
Electron beam passes through no*es in a metal plate called a tr-adow mask which keeps the t eams perfectly aligned on the
- gnt place on the screen. The stance between the holes in this
Mte is called the dot pitch, The mailer the dot pitch the
closer the as are together and the sharper picture on the
Monitors based on the Sony Trinitron cathode ray tube have show masks in which the holes are arranged as parallel slots. This gives a better image.
Gnetisa Configuring screen settings
- rting up of your screen modes is done through the ScreenMode
preferences. With
• «it is possible to select the desired monitor and resolution
form the display mode list.
The number of cotours is also selectable with a slider bar. The mode properties are splayed in the window to the right, with information regarding honzontai and vertical
• jquency. Using this information you can determine whether you
monitor will support ~e displayed mode. If you wish to have a
Workbench screen that is bigger than the vis- Oto size, stated
in the mode properties window, you may wish to use autoscroll,
which i tow the user to scroll around the screen using the
Overscan may be configured using the overscan preferences, depending whether the ,- een mode supports it. To alter overscan, you will need to use a combination of the Amiga’s own adjustment and your monitor's screen sizing and positioning to achieve the Dest results. Although higher resolution screens with more colours can be quite nice.
* ey use up more chip memory and can stow down the machine. Happy
Respec-j ! On th tafcnsity of the beam at any point, this ¦rant that it was feasible to re-produce a picture, by moving the beam across the
• ffeen, going down one line on each t f*$ 5, altering the
intensity at various points to create dark and light areas.
If this process was performed fast oaough, a still picture would be possible.
I Tkr human eye compensates for the stages in-between, and in addition, a factor called phosphor decay determines the length of time the phosphor in any area will continue to emit light after an area is struck by the electron beam.
There are many variables to the way a picture is created - for instance, the frequency at which the horizontal beam crosses the screen, or makes a scan line, is called the scan rate. The number of scan lines down a screen determines the vertical refresh rate, which like horizontal rate, is measured as a frequency, in Hertz or Hz.
There are two main ways which the electron beam can write a picture on a computer-based display. The first of these is standard vector scanning. This involves swinging the electron beam continuously from left to right while shifting vertically, one step at a time in synchronisation with the horizontal movement.
VECTOR The other method is called interlaced vector scanning. This is used for older monitors to enable high resolutions, as the input signal CPUs cannot handle higher rates of video information.
Effectively, this method halves the frame rate, reducing CPU usage. It involves scanning every second scanline in two passes, one odd set and one even.
Setting up your monitor Since there is no advantage in using a multiscan monitor with Workbenches earlier than v2.o (unless you own a flicker fixer) this section will be covering 2.x and upwards Workbench 2.04 With this version of Workbench, you will find a drawer on your extras disk called “MomtorStore* containing files to control various types of monitors.
Among these you will find multi- scan, A2024, NTSC and PAL. For users of multisync monitors, you will need to drag the Multiscan and PAL icons over to the monitors drawer of your workbench disk.
Workbench 2.14-3.0 Simply drag the appropriate monitor icons, perhaps DBLPAL. Multiscan.
Super72 (or whatever you want) from the monitors drawer on the storage disk to the devs:monitors drawer on your Workbench disk (or hard disk) ¦ MONITORS Types of monitor dual tri quadsyncs These monitors are similar to multiscan monitors with the exception that they work with two. Three or four preset frequencies, depending on the model. They are normally cheaper that multisyncs. Quad and triSynCS are often badged as multisyncs, so be careful what you buy.
TV monitors Although these are realty a type of monitor, they normally have the same capabilities as a PAL monitor with the exception of not having any controls to adjust the size and position of the picture.
Although the quality is not normally as good as a PAL monitor, it is compensated by the bonus of doubling-up as a TV set.
PAL monitors These monitors are capable of producing pictures from standard PAL signals, which for an Amiga output is 512 scan lines, with a horizontal frequency (or rate) of
15. 625kHz. This produces 640 pixels across by 512 down. These
monitors usually are capable of reproducing pictures from
composite video sources.
Multiscan multisyncs Multiscan monitors (often known as multisyncs, a trademark of NEC) are able to work with many different horizontal and vertical refresh rates, as they will scan within their frequency limits until they manage to lock on to a signal.
Most Multiscan monitors can easily be used with Amigas. Some more modern multiscan monitors incorporate DMS (Digital Memory Sizing) which automatically resizes the screen to cope with extended video features such as overscan etc. Without this feature, it is necessary to adjust the picture sizing and position with the controls available. Multiscan monitors are generally the most expensive of all types of monitors.
You should expect to pay more for DMS. When buying a multisync monitor, make sure it is able to scan down to horizontal frequencies of at least 15kHz, for the Amiga's PAL and NTSC modes This method is sufficient to give an illusion of a continuous picture. Interlacing is always used on television signals.
White light can be made up of three primary colours, red green and blue, often referred to as RGB. Any values of red, green and blue can be combined to produce a specific colour.
Unlike mono monitors which have only one electron gun, colour monitors have three, one for each primary colour.
The effect of colour is created by different coloured Phosphor dots placed on the screen, which emit light to their particular colour when bombarded with electrons.
The phosphors are arranged as a large number of triads, with each triad containing three different dots or stripes of phosThe Amiga StreenMode preft for m 2.04*- allow you to select between a large list of available screen modes. The multiscan prefs setting allows you to alter the amount a screen mode will overscan by phor. The idea is that one gun only shoots electrons at the red phosphor, while the other two fire at their respective coloured dots. To prevent a gun firing at the wrong dot, a metal grill called the shadowmask is placed inside the tube just in front of the screen. The
perforation and positioning of the shadow mask have to be done with great accuracy.
As explained earlier, the screen image is made up of triads of three colours, that appear as small dots (or pixels) on a picture. Basically, the smaller the pixels, the higher the resolution.
Colour monitors have vastly inferior resolution to mono monitors, due to the fact there is no need for a shadowmask, so resolution is not defined by grating size of the shadowmask. The circuitry inside the monitor also determines the resolution obtainable. Faster monitor CPUs can handle higher rates of information therefore allowing greater resolutions. You will generally find that the higher resolution a monitor is capable of, the higher the price.

LETTERS ¦ 1200 to live - n a CD vacuum?
Ezra Surfs Postbag As one of the first people to buy an A1200 almost a year ago, find I am still waiting for the promised CD-ROM add-on drive lo give my machine the same capabilities as the CD32 console.
* 12- an y°u give Commodore a kick up the backside on behalf of all the users, such as myself, who put their faith in this sick and, seemingly, terminally ill company?
Like many others, I was foolish enough to believe the hype put out by various software companies concerning the release dates of A1200 and CD32-onlv titles which would take advantage of my Amiga's superior power, but apart from the efforts of a few stalwarts of the Amiga 1 have been let down. Why haven't they (the get-nch-quick software houses) deliv- BfcJ the goods?
F | now find that the AAA chip set is on the horizon, and due for release later this year.
That mean that my A120U will go the same way as the A30(), A5()0 Plus, and A600? I pd to know now before the second-hand value of my machine drops too much.
Callum Hastings. Dumbarton mk dear, how nuuni letters such as this will we receive? The A1200 is Hie standard Amiga these P tnd will continue to Ivftr a long lime to come.
Commodore haw dropped all PC production to concentrate on the Amiga, and theAUOO in jw- has sold very well this Christmas.
Stffuure companies have indeed been slower to react to the A1200 than the uv were originally V believe, and their tardiness in keeping to release schedules is a constant source of concern.
The situation is changing rapidly.
The latest releases to reach the AC office. Jurassic Park and Labyrinth among them, are at least mtqual of PC CD-ROM games and much better than anything the Mega CD can boast. Take a *at our revieio if you doubt this, and sit back for a treat in 1994.
Ny of us haiv gone ga-ga oirr the fwssibilities of the CD medium and the stereo CD-i)ualily it offers, but it's not until you actually play one of the new CD32 releases that you realise much better the gaming experience can be ’ ‘vhen you have 600Mb of storage space, a less bright note, the CD32-compatible drive for the A1200 is being held up because e can't get the price much below BOO and because the company is concentrating most of on making and selling Amigas and CD32s. Whether the device will appear al all tins year entirely on Commodore and the demands of A1200 owners.

That call was made on November 1 c i though I'd give them until January nen a reasonable amount of time had On December 6 a Wang engi- tt called and immediately set about ~ acmg the internal drive. Not only did he change the drive, but proceeded to open a brand new ROM board and replace my old one. Next day my replacement Workbench disk arrived.
I am personally more than happy with my service from Commodore. Nothing was too much trouble for the engineer from Glasgow.
I found Commodore quite easy to deal with and I hope you can print this letter so other readers can see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
M Diamond. Edinburgh To every coin there are two sides, and it looks as H yours landed heads up.
Commodore realised early in the A 1200 s life that speed and quality of service was attracting continued criticism from users and the Amiga press, and efforts were made to rectify the problem.
The result, as you have witnessed, is that after sales service is now much improved. Just goes to shown what a concerted campaign ol good of British whingmg can achieve Not a bundle of fun I am seriously pissed off, having been very effectively ripped off by a combination of Commodore and high street retailers. The reason? Well, it's a long story, but here goes.
I recently decided to sell my trusty A500 Plus and use the money with a bit extra to upgrade as cheaply as possible to a brand spanking new A1200. Now, I have been a loyal Amigan since 19S9, starting with the bog standard A500, and during this time have built up a reasonable collection of my favourite software.
I have grown accustomed to the likes of Dpaint 4, Final Copy, Directory Opus, and 1 would grudgingly confess to enjoying the occasional game. I decided to keep this software to use with my new Amiga, so in short I wanted an A1200 without software.
1 didn't want or need Desktop Dynamite, Fast and Furious, Race and Chase, or any Other sort of bundle. Ever tried to buy a bare Amiga in the high street? No chance. It's a bundle or nothing.
After touring round all the likely stores in the area I came to the conclusion that my chances of obtaining a standalone Ai200 were very slim to say the least.
I eventually had to settle for the Fast and Furious pack, complete with AGA versions of dodgy games like Trolls and Nigel Mansell, and at a price of nearly £50 more than the advertised price of an A1200.
Mail order might have got me a better deal, but it was close to Christmas and 1 get nervous when 1 send large wads of cash before receiving the goods.
Mv bundled games are, as expected, £50 worth of utter crap, destined to spend the rest of their days in some dark drawer, but it has to be said that the A1200 is absolutely superb. It’s everything, and more, that I expected.
So, all you high street stores out there, please keep a stock of standalone A 1200s for people like myself who are upgrading from another Amiga.
Ken Fidoc, Willenhall Commodore haw always bundled I he Amiga with games and some productivity software as a way of competing in our high streets against Amiga saboteur Can Amigas be made to simulate the cry of a female fox? If so. Could I lure the local fox population into the fastness of my back garden before hunting season starts and they're ripped to pieces by slavering mongrels, not to mention the fox hounds?
The nature-friendly among us want to know!
Joe "the sab", Surrey Hmm - you'd certainly be safer using such methods than jumping in front of galloping horses, but it is unlikely that a fox would be fooled for long by an Amiga sound sample.
Perhaps if you bought a (fake, of course) fur stole and wrapped your Amiga in it the illusion might last a little longer, though I doubt if it would work for the entire hunting season.
Other systems, such as Mega CD. Which are sold with their own software.
It h this sort of aggressive marketing which ensures success against the many rival consoles and PC systems, and without it A1200 sales would have been hit hard during Commodore's most important Christmas for many years.
Commodore's current financial situation can only reversed by high volume sales of the A4000,' Al200, and CD32, mostly the latter two, and only by bundling popular games and productivity software can such sales be assured.
High street stores, on the other kind, can ¦LETTERS Lost cause Commodore lost a life-long Amiga user yesterday, someone who has owned a Vic 20. Commodore 64.
A500. And A1200, but who will no longer tolerate the conditions of the Amiga games market. I sold my A1200 when I realised that even the latest epic. Jurassic Park won't install on my hard drive.
Why is it that Amiga owners are judged to be inherently more avaricious and dishonest than their PC-owning friends? This can be the only rationale behind a game which is HD installable on the PC but not on the Amiga.
Is the software industry staffed entirely by morons with no thought in their heads other than the collection and retention of profit, with scant regard for the wishes or service of their customers? I'm beginning to think so.
Got something to say Anyway, they can stuff their archaic floppy-only games with crunching copy protection which doesn't work slow access, and crap music.

He might also have to shorten your letters, so don't be offended if you end up getting the chop.
End-ot-my-tether. Clitheroe Your frustration as a hard drive owner (or ex-owner, as it appears) are shared by thousands of Amiga gamers and everyone in the AC offices, where the arrival of a floppy-only game of the sort which cries out for a hard drive eliQits howls of anger, especially with the game reviewers who are forced to undergo the torture of multiple disk swapping.
Software houses should by now have realised that any game other than simple single floppy, quick loading shoot- em-ups must be hard drive installable, and it they are not then they are immediately compromised in terms of playability.
Here’s the solution to Bill Mackintosh’s problem running games such as Indiana Jones on larger hard drives. I have an A1200 with a 170Mb Western Digital and the game wouldn’t work on my hard drive in the same way Bill was finding problems.
The problem, I discovered, was that the Amiga often writes files to disk too quickly, including large graphics and anim files, leaving the file corrupt. I finally got Indie to wori by copying the files from all 11 disks to my HD using Directory Opus.
To solve the speed problem, use a program called GVP Expert Prep or a similar hard drive set-up program to change the Max Transfer parameter until it reads 0x00001 fff (decimal 8192) for all your partitions. This will slow transfer down so that files over 300k in size will be written to disk correctly.
After changing the transfer rate, save the rigid disk block Amiga 1200 owners, a growing number of whom have internal IDE Hds. Should simply refuse to buy non-installable games until the software houses are forced by commercial pressures to change their stance Only ii Amiga owners, like PC game players, make it clear that floppy-based games are unpopular will anything change lor the better.
Only sell what Commodore supply, and the emphasis this Christ m has been on bundles.
Standalone Amigas should, though, be amiable, and if anyone else is having difficulty finding one, I suggest you call ZCL on 0543 414817 or SDL on 081-3091111. These fwo large Commodore distributors have every model in slockf and if they can't sell you a hire A1200 then no-one else can.
Blank cheque I’ve had an idea which might help sort out the problems with mail order, and would certainly make more people use mail order when buying expensive equipment.
At the moment, sending a cheque or phoning with your credit card number in no wav guarantees delivery of the goods on time or at all, and the money can often be gone from your bank account weeks or months before the kit is delivered, if it ever is.
My scheme would involve a private company, under government watchdogs, which would act as a central mail order clearing house, taking orders from customers using an 0800 number, passing them on to the companies which use its services, then arranging the delivery and payment so that both customer and salesman get what they want on time.
By charging a small percentage to cover running costs and make a tidy profit, this sort of service would encourage the more cynical or nervous of us to use mail order, and those who wanted to go for the cheaper prices of the smaller outfits at the risk of late or nondelivery could still have the opportunity to take their chances and save a little mod- cash.
Ian Belmont, Carlisle Your idea sounds like a good one. But ttu' company you envisage uvuld hair to offer the mail order companies some sort of advantage over traditional direct selling.
(which won't require formatting the HD), then just re-boot Amiga. The above method doesn't slow down the seek or reading speed of the drive, just the writing rate.
Jay Dave, Presto» Thanks for the tip, Jay. Users out there who don't have access i GVP's excellent (but commercial) propping software should I able to find ample PD SCSI editors and HD toolbox programs !
Make the job possible.
Keep in mind, though, that a full backup of data on your par- tions should be made before messing around with hard drives this way. If a mistake ora calamity leads to the corruption of a partition. You will then at least have a fall-back rather than a good excuse for throwing yourself out the window.
If the rise in consumer confidence did not result in enough sales through your clearing house he mail order outfits would return to their usual methods and the clearing house uvuld go bust, Only if there is a potential market of people who are normally put off mail order by the risks involved would the scheme succeed, and that's a matter fir cartful commercial market research.
If the market exists, however, someone somewhere could make a niir little earning from Hus middle man-cum-policman role.
Strong market A friend of mine who has just bought an Amiga recently saw to her alarm a discussion in one of the Amiga magazines of Commodore's troubles and of the threat to the Amiga market. She now feels she may have spent £300 on a dying machine and I have to reassure her.
What can I tell her?
Pcttr Stejrley, Warrington fust tell your friend to take a trip down to WH Smiths one Saturday and observe the crowds of people at the magazine racks perusing the wide range of Amiga magazines on offer.
Every month, over 400,000 Amiga magazines arc sold, which points to an active Amiga audience of at least half a million and more like Hie full million.
Taken with t w rising sales of Amigas and Amiga magazines, this points to a healthy market which, though it no longer enjoys the position of being the unchallenged king of the games world, is sur- viving ijuitc nicely amid intense competition, We could talk all day about the relative technological merits of the Amiga, but the simple fact is that hundreds of thousands of users are still making the Amiga their number one choice, and this should be enough, without invoking Occam's razor, to combat worries that the Amiga is going downhill.
The software industry, though considerably less practised than Gallup or Mori in the business of prediction, have made gloomy noises about the Amiga in recent months, but we only haw to cast our minds back to the 92 general Indi solution A4000 v 486 I would just like to make a point abo the price ol the A4000 030. As I ¦ currently considering whether or noli purchase one of these fine macfw or go lor a PC.
I own an A500 at the mom« which is a bit temperamental and don't know if it will crash before i after I have saved this letter to disk, t I think it's time to upgrade.
The best price I have seen tor i A4000 030 is £1.099 with 1 Mb each t chip and fast RAM. And a 340Mb I drive, but no monitor.
For the same price I could go lor 486 25MHz with 4Mb RAM. 16-6 Soundblaster card. CD-ROM. It hard drive, and SVGA colour monitor I think that Commodore shouf include a monitor with their A4000D3I at the same price and I'm sure I would do better.

BACKUP UTILITIES TECHNICAL HELP Scan rates Jl have recently encountered a problem which I am sure is shared by many Amiga owners in that I have ailed a Picasso II retargetable ' :hics board and I am now seek- j a suitable monitor.
Tht Picasso's screen modes »*ge between 36kHz and 63kHz,
• Ihe IDEK MF-5315, which scans
• ¦*een 30 and 66kHz seems suit* e The problem is that many
program screens insist on » ng the 15kHz PAL and NTSC een modes
and cannot be !,ed. Even using Picasso's mge Screen software,
an exam- r of which is ADPro s main con- ACAS
• screen.
• would therefore seem that I wauire a monitor to scan between :
ind 63kHz. Which is asking quite at considering that the only
mon- s which can scan down to «Hz usually can't scan above i
could of course split the
• •ga's RGB signal between the and my existing TV but I don't to
sending incorrect frequents to one of them.
Would it be worth purchasing a in-doubler to change all 15kHz :des to 30kHz? If so. Can you ?ase recommend one and explain ? Basic workings?
Brett Buckley. Huddersfield Jyou seem to be a little confused about how the Picasso card itself works.
«« most cards of its kind it has a jilt in “scan-doubler'' (de-inter- :er. Or flicker fixer to the rest of h which is software controlled :m Workbench.
This means that Picasso will re-
* 9«t any 15kHz screens opened :m Workbench which use the
- - ga s display database.
All or most productivity soft- ire. Including ADPro, can be «de to re-target to Picasso's jher frequency display, though 'ey will retain their original pixel solution.
Commercial games software ~ach takes over the system and a « productivity packages such as aligari will not work with RTG
* nJs. And for most of these, cer- « nly all the games, a 15kHz
dis- »y device will be needed, if you still think you need a
:kHz monitor, try IDEK gain. The
- rrent range of monitors has been
- gmented by special “low scan"
• idels which cover the usual high
* quencies but also have a setting the PAL 15kHz mode. They are
- ore expensive, of course, but you r*ts what you pays for.
Deep-fried chips F About eight or nine weeks ago, my Amiga 500 stopped working after having trouble with my Star NX-2420 printer. I took il to the local (300km away!) Dealer who diagnosed the problem as a destroyed CIA chip and replaced both.
Upon returning home, I fired up my system and saw the familiar Workbench screen once more. It did not take long for the printer, after a little cable switching - with the power off, of course - to once again fry the CIA.
The dealer again replaced my CIA chip, but only the one directly in line with the parallel port. This worked, and aside from a fried printer (it is 120V and was plugged into 220V), the rest of the system worked.
However, I discovered that disks and programs were not loading properly. In fact, if I double clicked on one, it was a toss-up whether it loaded or not. In the latter case the system would freeze, warranting a reboot.
S-Xpress I've just completed making my first auto-booting disk and I'm feeling proud of myself, but I'm still unclear about exactly what all the directories do. Especially S and L. I know that the startup-sequence goes in S. but what else can it be used for and what goes in the L directory? Please help, because I can feel confusion creeping back in, Dave Fairlie. Dudley What is wrong with my system? I suspect that the other CIA chip is on its way out. Am I right?
John Gibbs, Yanbu al-Sinaiyah, Saudi Arabia The $ directory is used mainly to store script files (of which startup- sequence is the best example), which means it is often where Arexx macros are stored, and where user-startup scripts, and special startup scripts for various programs can be located. Apart from the odd alteration to starlup-sequence, most users need never look in the S directory.
Your L directory is where device handlers are stored. These files are complementary to the devices found in the Devs drawer and a bare Workbench disk will usually contain at least the Ram-Handier, which provides the RAM disk, and the Port-Handier, which controls the way in which the serial and parallel ports are accessed.
Again, the L directory is one which should need little in the way of intervention from the user, though it is also where, in pre-WB2 machines, the disk-val- idator file is stored, and so is also where the Saddam virus will lurk when he first infects your machine.
R Fit certainly sounds as if the dealer should have replaced both CIA chips the second time round, especially if you have been plugging mismatched peripherals into your Amiga.
Plugging an electrical device into the wrong type of power outlet will damage both the peripheral itself and anything it is connected to through overloads, voltage spikes, and so on, and this sounds like the most likely cause of your I O problems.The best course of action would be to have your dealer give the Amiga a complete once-over to check that more elements of the system have not been damaged by your mistake in connecting a printer with the wrong power rating.
Disk samples I have started to experiment IP with music on my Amiga and
* have bought a DSS R-bit sound sampler and a Midi interface to
connect to my Yamaha keyboard, now, however.
I've started on a tune which demands long samples and I don't have the memory to play them back.
Would it be cheaper to buy extra memory or go for a hard drive? I've heard of PD direct-to-disk sampling software, but is it any good and would I need a fast hard drive?
Lightning never strikes twice... unless it’s in the Amiga’s premier technical letters page, that is C Masftrton, Famborough r Sampling direct to hard disk does not require an overly fast hard drive and any ordinary IDE or SCSI device should have a data transfer rate sufficient for the job. In cases where lower sample quality is acceptable (no more than about 14kHz), a floppy disk can be used to play back fairly large samples, and these are much slower than Hds.
For CD quality sound (44kHz) you will need about 11Mb for one minute of stereo, so a 40Mb hard drive should be enough for basic use, though if you wish to Store lots of samples a 100Mb+ hard drive would be better.
Public domain and shareware direct- to-disk sampling programs arc available, and many of them do a fine job, but don't expect the sort of features your G VP software offers.
The majority of PD sampling programs of this kind are designed for the basic job of sampling and if you don't have wads of memory you might find editing the samples a tad difficult.
One of the commercial virtual memory packages, such as GigaMem which uses hard drive space as if it were RAM, would be a good idea in this case, but you'll need a chip with a memorv management unit (MMU), which is not present in chips with the EC designation.
The 68EC020, fitted in all A1200s, was originally designed to be used as a cheap embedded controller (hence EC) for domestic appliances and doesn't have an MMU. Nor does the 68EC030 used in the A4000 030, so make sure before looking at virtual memory options that you have the appropriate hardware.
Bitmap success Two days after writing you a letter asking for advice on how to solve the problem of the message "unable to read ¦ TECHNICAL HELP 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.
Don't know exactly what they do. For example, many of my program icons have tool types for font directories, and something called CX_Popup being either yes or no. What's it all about, eh?
Roger Pennington, Cardiff rTool types are the same as the parameters you might type in to accompany a CLI command and they offer the user a chance to change the way a program loads up and automatically pass instructions to it as it loads.
Those tool types which refer to a drawer on your hard drive usually tell (he program where to look for its data files and so on, and the CX_Popup tool type tells the Amiga whether a program's interface should appear when it is loaded.
Only commodities, designed to run at boot-up in the background usually use CX_Popup tool types, but authors are Gadget trouble so don’t worry about the SID error message. As long as you have v39.6 of Workbench (the version supplied with every A1200), you should have no problems.
First thing to try is re-installing your Workbench software to ensure that all the correct libraries and files are present, then get a modern virus checker and give all your disks a good going over.
It is sometimes a first indication of a viral infection when software doesn't function as expected, and a general virus sweep is a good idea from time to time anyway. If your Palette program still doesn't work you should lay your hands on a completely fresh WB3 disk and re-install with that.
Many users buying A1200s from local dealers who had installed Workbench in the back room of the shop later found out that installation, consisting of dragging all visible icons to the system partition, had only been partially completed, and this could be the case with your drive.
Rl have a problem with the palette editor in the Prefs drawer ot my new A1200. Although it allowed me to customise my Workbench colours originally, if I now select it I get an advisory error “srequires coiourwheel gadget v39 Using SfD shows me that the gadget is indeed present in my SYS:Classes Gadgets drawer, but if I select to run this through SID I get ‘file not executable return code 10*. Selecting Multiview also shows me that the gadget is there but if I try to open any file I am told that it is an unknown datatype. Is this a separate problem?
If I boot from my copy of the Workbench 3.0 disk the editor selects as advertised. What can I do and can you give me more information on return codes? Incidentally, why does SID tell me that my 85Mb drive is only an 83.5Mb drive?
Mike Phillips, Naples. Italy r It sounds as though you have a systemic problem, as both the datatypes and gadgets are failing to function properly. These are not executable files.
Bitmap" I have managed to solve the problem by using RDPrep to re-format the whole disk (yikes! - Ed).
However, I'd still like to know what a bitmap reading error is and its likely causes, so perhaps you could still reply to those questions. My other query about whether the whirring noise of a hard disk is common to all drives stands, though, as this noise is driving me up the wall.
Stephen Solar, Bagulcy rThe whirring noise you can hear with all hard drives is the sound of the disk continually rotating. As hard drives spin much faster than floppies it is necessary to keep them spinning rather than wait each time you access the drive for it to reach operational speed.
Floppy users can initially be shocked by the noise made by hard drives, partly because they are the only constantly moving parts in a system unless it also has a cooling fan.
A bitmap, in hard drive terms, is a digital picture drawn by the Amiga on the hard drive's root block. This picture holds the locations of all files on the drive and if it is corrupted you will receive error messages relating either to the fact that it cannot be read or that the drive is "unvalidated".
Bitmap errors are about the least dangerous of hard drive problems and shouldn't cause complete re-formats so long as you have access to one of the disk repair programs on offer.
Quarterback Tools, given awav on a recent CoverDisk, has a few problems with the A1200's IDE drive, but Quarterback Tools Deluxe does not and should sort out the problem in less traumatic fashion if it ever appears again.
Tool types The use of so-called "tool I™ types" in icons has been a
• source of confusion for me since I bought my A500 Plus, and I
still free to use a list of standard tool types (for
consistency's sake) or use as many of their own as they feel
Full details on a program's tool types can usually be found in the accompanying documentation and should be looked upon as useful and flexible allies rather than foes.
If a program opens in interlace, for example, and you can see no way to change this through the program's menus, checking the icon's tool types can sometimes reveal tool types such as LACE=YES which can be changed to alter the default screen mode.
CD for all rln the eyes of A2000 owners, such as myself, the CD-ROM boom seems far away, but I have recentlv been given hope by the appearance on my favourite bulletin board of a CD-ROM filesvstem for all Bad lists Fl’ve noticed a bit of a ' on the subject of program I ings in the magazine, and] like to add my tuppence worth. I hate( buggers.
How many times, when I own Spectrum, did I blindly type in a incomprehensible gibberish, only to f that some unknown cock-up in line!
Caused the program to crash? Doz How many times did I throw | Spectrum against the wall in frus when I realised after half an hour thalf tiny typeface was responsible for 4 thinking a colon was a semi-cok comma a full stop, and so on? Doze How soon would I like to refresh ( memory and re-experience this i inflicted hell? Never. And that’s my penn’orth on the subject of listings.
If you have to have program I please supply them on disk. Thai i some poor fool wants to type them i can print them out and do it the hard i while the rest of us read through t our monitor screens.
Graham Kelly, rOK, that’s another additk the Great Listings Debate far we've had beginner* support, old lags (who suffered 1 same hell as Mr Kelly) in stau resistance to the idea, and a i of waverers.
The jury is still out. Folks, so | those pens a-scribbling.
Amigas. If I install this filesystem. access CD software? If so, will 11 special interface or some sort of t hardware to make CD-ROMs wc my ECS-equipped machine?
H Trough ton, p rThe filesystem to which j refer is designed to moi SCSI controlled CD- drive as if it were another Al device such as a floppy or hard i and should give your system acce most non-program CD-ROMs comply to the ISO 9660 standard.
With the help of a SCSI inte card and a cheap CD-ROM from I dealer you should be able to acce CD-ROM of clip art, text file graphics, though you won't, of CO be able to play PC games.
You should also have access I various Amiga CD-ROMs such ; CDPD collection from AlmatJ Systems, but I am unsure about] possibility of playing bootable I game disks.
Download the archive and che documentation for yourself if you!
Full details, but always be aware this is not a CDTV or CD32 “ea lor", but simply a filesystem by some Cds can be read from.

1992. Because Amiga users were so amazed to be able to run
top-of-the-line Macintosh products such as Adobe Photoshop
and Quark Xpress on their computers, the)' were willing to
overlook Emplant's initial quirks and limitations.
Emplant's developer, Jim Drew, surfed the on-line networks providing support for the device and taking in suggestions and complaints.
Drew promised not only to enhance and improve the Macintosh emulation, but also to eventually release emulation modules for devices ranging from the Apple and IBM-PC to the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis.
More than a year later, has Emplant II delivered on its promises? Well, the answers are for the most part "yes”, with an occasional "not yet, but we're working hard on it".
Emplant’s Macintosh emulation has matured to the point where an a properly equipped Amiga can indeed be a "better Mac than a Mac". The promised additional emulation modules have yet to surface as of press time, however.
But UU's Drew assured me at press time that new emulation modules are just around the comer, and sent me a beta version of the Emplant Apple II emulator as proof.
Emplant is a Zorro II expansion card that fits in the Amiga 1500,2000,3000, and
4000. It's available in four configurations: The Basic Emplant,
which simply includes the ROM sockets and chips needed to
support Emplant's various emulation modules; the Deluxe
Emplant, which adds two Appletalk-compatible RS-422 serial
ports and a SCSI interface; and models with just SCSI or
just serial support. All of the models can be expanded to
the Deluxe specifi- & a ?
Cation. Emplant currently ships with Macintosh emulation software, at v3.8 as of this writing. Apple II emulation is just around the comer, and may be available by the time you read this, And UU are hard at work on IBM 486 emulation for release later this year.
DEVELOPMENT Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo emulation modules are under development bv a European company and will be available separately.
UU have also greatly optimised the speed of the emulation. A 68040-equipped Amiga will perform very similarly to a real Macintosh equipped with the same- speed processor.
The Speedometer benchmark shows the A4QQ0 04Q is similar to the Mac Quadra real Mac.
Video is another area that has great improvement. The early ven Emplant constantly reminded you you weren't using a real because screen updates were slow when running in colour mode Now the emulation manages a 700 in almost all benchmarks except for video. However, remember that while the machine is matching an equivalent Macintosh in speed ratings, it’s running Amiga software at the same time!
Hard drive speed is now about five times faster than in the original emulation, and is close to what you'll get from a Macintosh emulation on the Amiga becoming cheaper, more powerful more popular Denny Atkin looks at Emplant II, the latest upgrade of Utilities Unlimited’s acclaimed Putting on your Mac Early versions of Emplant required a minimum 68030 microprocessor for Macintosh emulation.
Recent releases no longer require an MMU, SO they’ll work on a 68EC030 microprocessor, making the product usable on the A400Q 030.
You'll want at least 4Mb of Fast RAM for Macintosh emulation, but more is preferable.
And a hard drive is a must on the Macintosh, so it’s a must here as well.
For Mac emulation, you’ll also need the Macintosh operating system. This includes a 256k Macintosh ROM chip from a Mac i or Ilex, and the Macintosh System 7.1 operating system disks. You can purchase ROM chip from a number of electronics suppliers, or if you own a proper Macintosh use the ROMINFO program to copy the I a disk file without removing them from you- ¦ The newest release of the Macintosh tion software is “32-bit clean” This i emulates the newest Macintosh mo allows you to address more than 8Mb of f the Macintosh side.
Indeed, until 32-bit clean support was!
You were hard-pressed to get Emplant to t with more than 4Mb available for the Mac i EMU L AT I O Nl tems. The emulation is quite speedy, providing full Apple II performance even on a stock A1200. That's the most impressive thing, since previous Amiga emulation modules of 6502-based computers have been pokey slow Although Apple graphics are quite nasty to look at, the emu* lator does give you a way to run some classics such as Galaxian and Wizardry on your Amiga. Still, this emulation will likely be of interest primarily to Amigans who started out as Apple users, or whose kids use Apples at
The emulation not only multitasks with Amiga software, but with the Mac emulation as well - memory permitting, you can run one instance of each Emplant emulation simultaneously with all the others.
Since UU now have a working emulator of a 6502-based computer. C64 128 and Atari 400 800 emulation modules are- planned too, UU plan to make all of these available free of charge it has!
D you I Maeintd ? Relative todes.
Ps about I I of the update speed of a real Mac I running in 256 colours on an AGA or 16 colours on an ECS Amiga.
I isn’t perfect, but is plenty fast I for games such as Falcon MC and Kttrom. If you're serious about sh emulation, though, and you i use high-powered Macintosh pr-editing software such as hop, you'll want to invest in a i card for your Amiga.

so large, a 4Mb Macintosh is about as cramped as a 1Mb Amiga -
it’s usable, but don't plan on running high-powered
image-processing programs or on multitasking much.
With 32-bit clean support, I'm now able to emulate a 9Mb Macintosh on my 12Mb Amiga 4000 - far more useful for productivity work.
Memory isn't shared with the Amiga side of you tell Emplant how much to dedicate to Macintosh emulation when you first start f * j want to make more memoiy available to the Amiga side, you'll need to shut down ation, change the allocation, and then restart it.
F 32-bit clean emulation means that Emplant no longer requires a memory-manage- I ynit. So it's now compatible with the 1 processors found in some GVP 5 and in the A4000 030.
Hcwever, if possible you'll want to run the i on an MMU-equipped machine, as I without one will have much slower : -©dates under the Macintosh emulation.
The IBM 486 emulation is still a few months away, i Unlimited are ready to unleash a second emulation - ol : Apple II computer, i -Sri’t as strange as it sounds, as over here in the States I Apple II was the computer of choice for school systems t the 1980s (it was our equivalent of the Beeb).
Schools still use these machines, so an emulator will young students to practice with their Apple educational 5 at home on the Amiga. I tested a nearly final beta ver- 1 flf the Apple II emulation and was quite impressed. You'll t access to an original Apple II machine to dump its ROMs i Amiga; from there, it’s easier to use than a real Apple, ause there's no easy way to read Apple disks on an though, you’ll need to transfer the files you want to use i “odem. The emulation will load Apple disk image files (simi* ' QMS archives on the Amiga) and boot them just like a real You can find plenty of
files to try out on Apple BBS sysyou can expect graphics just as fast as those of a real Macintosh. If you don’t need 24-bit colour, though, you're likely to find that the AGA graphics are quite usable; using the Super 2 mode you can run the emulation in 832 x 624 resolution in 256 colours.
SOUND Emplant is no longer mute - the latest releases support full stereo Macintosh sound, and do a good job of it. Sounds play smoothly from Macintosh games such as SimCity 2000.
There are a number of options for disk storage. The easiest way to get up and running is to buy an Emplant with the SCSI interface and simply plug a Apple Who?
4 wtceulon at setup ureens aid the user In configuring the emulator Macintosh SCSI drive into the back of the card. Mac SCSI drives generally come with the System 7 software already installed, so it's a simple matter of plug- and-go.
With Amiga drives you have three options: You can format an entire drive as a Macintosh drive, choose a partition and format it for the Mac, or use the Hardfile support.
Hardfile support is similar to the virtual drives used by Commodore's Bridgeboard *- a large file is created on an Amiga hard drive partition that looks to the Macintosh like a hard drive.
This isn’t as fast as dedicating a real partition to the Macintosh emulation, but it has the advantage of being easy to set up and it can be backed up with a standard Amiga hard drive backup program.
Emplant's SCSI adaptor fully emulates a real Macintosh SCSI port, so you can attach nearly any Mac SCSI expansion device there. I’ve run both a Bernoulli removable hard disk and an Apple CD300 double-spin CD-ROM drive on the port with no problems, even running Macintosh CD-ROM games.
Putting a CD-ROM on the Emplant's SCSI port has the added advantage of allowing you to use the drive on both the Amiga and Mac sides of the computer.
Floppy support is a bit more problematic. When Emplant first shipped, UU offered a device called Sybil that allowed the Amiga to read BOOk Macintosh format disks. However, the device never would reliably write Mac disks (Macintosh 8lX)k The latest releases supoort full stereo Macintosh sound, and do a goodjob of it, too The shape of things to come As this article was going to press. UU we re hard at work On a major revision, Emplant
4. 0, which should be available by the time you read this.
Utilities Unlimited’s Jim Drew let me in on what was coming up in this revision; if all of these features don't make it into 4.0. they'll be in releases that follow soon after.
After this wish-list is implemented. Drew will put aside the Mac emulation module and dive into finishing the IBM 486 emulation.
First and foremost on the upgrade list is support for using the Amiga's serial and parallel ports from the Macintosh side. The emulation will be able to pass data transparently back and forth to either port.
The exciting thing, though, will be a new Chooser extension that will let you pnnt directly from your Macintosh applications to a Preferences printer driver - no more hunting down a Macintosh-side driver for the printer of your choice!
The current file-transfer mechanism will be replaced by a new MultiFS filesystem driver. Similar to CrossDOS in concept, this driver will allow both the Amiga and Mac sides to access any supported file format, so you could, for instance, write data to a Macintosh high-density disk from an Amiga program.
CONVERTING This driver will feature plug-m translation modules for converting between popular Amiga and Macintosh file formats - every* thing from converting plain Ascn text to translating various graphics formats as they're copied Support for virtual memory is on the wish list, as is support for multiple monitors. With this capability, you could, for instance, display a 24-bit Macintosh picture on your Picasso board full-screen while keeping all your toolboxes and menus on a faster 16* colour Amiga screen.
Finally, there's the long-awaited PCMCIA Emplant for the Amiga 1200. This will be a small box that has all the features of the Zorro II card - dual serial and SCSI options included - except it won't have ROM sockets.
A parallel port ROM reader will be available for transferring your Mac ROMs to the A1200 if you need it. It will sell for the same price as the original Emplant.
Many A1200 owners will be happy just to have a PCMCIA SCSI option, never mind the bonus of the emulation Although the PCMCIA Emplant will function with a stock A1200. You'll be happier with the performance of the Mac emulation if you add an accelerator board.
The design of this board has been completed. But UU has been unable to procure enough PCMCIA connectors to go into production due to industry shortages. The company hopes to have it available this Spring.

Sybil is no longer available, so currently the only options for reading 800k disks are to connect an A-Max or Mac-2- DOS cartridge and a real Mac disk drive.
NIBBLE However, UU soon plan to release a small board that will plug into the back of an Amiga disk drive that will not only allow Emplant to read and write 800k Mac disks, but will also function as a nibble copier.
Emplant will directly read disks created by the A-Max and Spectre Mac emulators, though, so if you're upgrading from one of those emulators you're in luck.
On a happier note, Emplant will directly read and write Macintosh
1. 44Mb high-density disks if you have a high-density disk drive
on your Amiga; it currently has trouble writing to disks if
you’re in 256-colour mode, but Drew said this problem should
be cured before this article sees print.
Since all current Macs include high- density disk drives, more and more Mac software is coming on these disks.
The two RS-422 serial ports will allow you to attach a modem, printer, or AppleTalk network. These work very well, except that some A4000 users with early-revision Buster chips in their systems may find problems with the AppleTalk support.

Translation is presently limited to the ...to the most bosk Mac software How compatible is it?
So how well does Emplant perform as a Macintosh? Very. As mentioned earlier, processing performance is very similar to a real Macintosh running the same processor. But with the added benefit of being able to run Amiga software at the same time.
Compatibility is superb. I tested a dozen major productivity applications - such as Photoshop. Quark Xpress, Fractal Design Painter, and Quicken - and they all worked without a hitch. The only problem I had was an occasional crash with Microsoft Word, which UU are looking into, Word is notoriously flaky, even on some real Macs.
A testament to the emulator’s compatibility is its ability to run games flawlessly.
I ran Falcon MC. Star Trek: 25th Anniversary, SimCity 2000, Spectre Supreme, and Maelstrom (the best Asteroids game ever designed for a computer) on my Emplant system without a hitch.
Even though 256-colour AGA video only rales about
0. 62 the speed of a real Macintosh II on the Speedometer
benchmark, the system provided smooth performance for all
these games.
Note that some older Macintosh programs may have problems when running in 32-bit clean mode or with the 68040 copyback caches active.
This Isn’t endemic to Emplant, but is simply a problem with poorly written Mac software that owners of real Macs face as well - its similar to the situation Amiga programs that won’t work right on the A1200 or A4000. Such problems can be worked around by turning off the caches or 32-bit support, just like with a real Macintosh.
Utilities Unlimited have been very good about fixing any problems with the emulation when users report a program that doesn’t work property - the company have even expressed plans to patch some popular but buggy Mac software to run property in 32-bit clean mode.
Macintosh applications co-exist peacefully with Amiga programs nowadays: early versions of Emplant would sometimes crash when you tried to use com ms software while running the Mac emulation, but hke most of the other teething pains that problem has been cured.
Having a Mac and Amiga in the same box is very advantageous. For instance, you could take a 24-bit TIFF graphics file, touch it up in Adobe Photoshop on the Mac side, then use the file transfer mechanism to move it over to the Amiga side for further processing with Art Department Professional.
The final result could then be moved back to the Mac and inserted into a desktop publi program. The Macintosh is a much expensive machine to equip for work than the Amiga. With Emplant .
Can use Mac software to touch up images, then move them to the side for output - the best of both worts Emplant s add-on ports are not only for the Mac emulation, but the Amiga side as well. The pac includes empscsi.device empser.device which let you utilise SCSI and serial ports under Ami The SCSI support is a real boon A4000 owners, allowing them to e connect CD-ROM drives or move hard drives over from older Amiga terns. The controller isn’t as fast as hot Zorro III SCSI-II boards, but again for the price of one of those can buy an Emplant complete with ROMs.
Setting up a SCSI device on Amiga side isn’t an easy operat though. The current empscsi.device doesn’t support boot or auto-mounting, so you'll need to use something the freely distributable SCSImounter program to Amiga DOS recognise the drive; it can be partitioned formatted using HDToolBox.
Since the board doesn't auto-boot on the Amiga (the Mac side does), it works best as an add-on con for systems like the A4000. Auto-boot capability may later - the Emplant board has provisions for a small tery-backed block of RAM that can hold auto-boot drive code.
The serial ports are fully functional with any A comms software that allows you to specify a repb for senal.device. If you need a couple of extra ports for with a bulletin board system or for basic serial nei Emplant will do the job.

reordering) TUTORI ALB ven after several years in the busi
ness I'm still amazed by the occasional release which sets
standards for creativity and artist nity.
Digital sculpture Get ready to be amazed as Paul Austin explores Humanoid, the next generation in 3D modelling i the arrival of Humanoid's I'm once i reassured that then1 is indeed more to Amiga than just profit, play and occa- Bbt productivity.
¦b you can see, Humanoid is yet another to the Amiga's ever growing ray trac- :oire - which in this case provides family of beautifully sculpted fig- both Lightwave and Imagine kow before knuckling down to the I’d like to explain why I'm so sed with what appears to be just r collection of 3D objects. Firstly s the obvious quality of the figures and hand and facial gestures.
However modelling skill is only the ig as each model has been designed animate effortlessly between the various hand and body poses, ftb is seen at its best courtesy of the vari- nmning and walking scenes which come the collection. The attention to fl and overall quality are quite simply Iwhtaking.
Alas due to the limitations of print, it’s fed to appreciate just how good these fig- really are. Even these impressive stills b m comparison when you see them, run- walking, speaking and dare I say even After such a glowing introduction you be wondering exactlv what makes the iid collection so human. Basically the to the system is the ability of both ave and Imagine to build hierarchical and morph between them. Thanks to hr power of both techniques Tim Wilson has lost banished that ubiquitous mechanical that so often dogs 3D modelling Thanks to the hierarchical design, basic ly parts can be
appended together and uently animated via key frames to luce basic articulation for running, walk- bending and so on.
However what about expression and even i? Hierarchical techniques are useless Registration special Enough the Complete collection of models indude a man. A strong man and a woman
* ; with their own heads, hands and motion paths, you also
receive a child.
However if you want your new family to experience parenthood you must first send H your registration card in order to receive the sprog. Although a blatant attempt to generate an accessible user base, there are other advantages.
Leaving this obvious marketing ploy aside, registration will ensure up-to-the-minute "formation on new products. For example Crestline plan to release a new collection of seamless human figures and animal models later this year which will take advantage of bones and skeletal morphing within Imagine 3.0. and as a consequence it's here where morphing really comes into its own.
Thanks to a mixture of careful design and consummate modelling skill, Tim has created a whole series of expressions and phonemes for each model which courtesy of their identical points can be morphed during animation.
As a result, making a model speak is simply a matter of morphing from one phoneme head to the next - at which point the model will mouth the phonetic elements which make up the words you require. Tim has even included a section in the excellent 50-page manual diagramming which phonemes to use for specific letters and sounds.
The same applies to emotions, depending on your needs your character could be angry, sad, happy or whatever. All you need do is tell the software at which point, and how quicklv, to morph between the various emotional states.
Using the same principles, hands can be animated between a variety of positions enabling your characters to point at an object, pick it up, shake hands, wave, grasp something, t grip it tightly and x even form a fist and destroy it.
As if that wasn't enough. Tim has also added the finishing touch bv ensuring that the figures are all made up of the same number of points and polygons. As a result it's just as easy to morph between the man, woman and child as it is to alter facial expressions.
This attention to detail is even more impressive when you consider that all the figures are hand built and not simply sucked into the machine via a 3D digitiser, Basically Tim Wilson's now collection is spectacular. If and when 3D art receives the artistic credit it so richly deserves Tim Wilson's creations will no doubt be considered classics.
If you can afford it and have the necessary 10.5Mb and 18.7Mb of hard disk space for the Lightwave or Imagine versions respectively, plus the recommended 030 or 040 CPU it's an investment youTl never regret, Unfortunately Crestline do not yet have a European distributor so I'm afraid you’ll have to entrust a postal order to the US mail.
However keep a close eye on the news pages as I’m certain some entrepreneurial type will soon add it to their portfolio.

Tel: 091 490 1919 Fax: 091 490 1918 All trademarks and registered trade marks are acknowledged PRINTER ¦ Forever blowing bubbles ince that cheeky little upstart the BJ10 started the ball rolling by knocking spots off dot matrix 5 only a couple of years ago, the bub- [ and inkjet market has grown enor- dy thanks to lower prices and the I advantages offered by this type er, Canon’s bubblejet range of printers seems to go on and on. Now Stevie Kennedy tries out the latest
colour addition, the BJC-600 i the expense of general flexibility, bub- i offer sharp, near-laser quality output »greatly improves upon the results of dot matrix, and though suffering in i of speed and print costs they have I a bigger and bigger slice of the rpie.
I common with the rest of the Canon . The BJC-600 is a compact unit with a ch appearance and a control panel i has deliberately been kept as simple Media costs 3oe of the abiding concerns with most bubblejet and inkjet printers is that of ~edia costs, or the price you pay for each sheet of paper printed- Depending on to cost of replacement ink cartridges and other consumables, running costs can ¦ jry sharply, and a printer which on the face of it looks a bargain could have high *«fheads.
The Canon s ink cartridges will stretch to about 200 pages of pure text, a figure Nch would come down to less than 100 pages if decent sized colour graphics
- ere used - a figure which is on a par with the competition.
Official Canon refill cartridges for all four ink wells would cost about £34.
Orking out at 17p per copy at best, and up to 40p per copy in heavy use. Using a
* *611 system such as that featured in this month's Shop Window
section, howler. Costs can now be reduced by two-thirds.
As possible. This gives the impression that fewer functions are available (partly true), but also helps avoid the intimidating appearance of those multi-button front panels lit up like Christmas trees you find on so manv printers.
A single set of ink cartridges and a pack of 25 sheets of A4 plain paper constitute the starter pack for this unit, and there are no The BJC-600 excels at colour graphics and clip art in up to 256 colours, but the limitations of bubblejet technology begin to show as Ham and 24-bit piccies are printed. Not bad, though, eh? Fancy a Cox's Pippin?
Less than three manuals; a quick start guide, a guide to using colour in documents, and the user manual itself.
The latter is a 118-page booklet which contains sound basic advice on using the printer, but which doesn't go into the same depth as many manuals. Reference sections on commands, character sets, and so on might not be of interest to most home users, but they can be important to professional owners.
No printer driver software is supplied for the Amiga (though the PC disks bundled with the printer can at least be reformatted), a fact which is offset by Wolf Faust's shareware CanonPrefs program.
PREFERENCES This excellent preferences editor has a CanonBJ-EC driver specifically for the more expensive Canon colour models and offers the user a range of dithering patterns.
When printing using this software instead of the standard Workbench EpsonQ driver, results - particularly colour graphics
- are noticeably better, and all new Canon owners are advised to
phone their local BBS or shareware library before wasting any
ink on Workbench drivers.
Plain paper can be used, normal Sogms photocopier paper sufficing for most jobs, but a lighter paper which holds less ink is better for graphics.
When a large colour image is produced, so much ink can be used that the page starts to roll up and mucky fingers are the order of the day until everything dries.
Graphics using anything between 16 and 256 Colours are printed in very high quality, the Canon's dithering coping well with the demands of creating the extra tones from its four ink wells, However, when 24-bit or HAM images are attempted, output can often be dark and smudgy, and these more colourful graphics are best left to thermal transfer units such as the Primera.
For all types of business presentations, logos and letterheads, the Canon is ideal, and for colour clip art is best of all. In particular, the output from the better word processors such as Wordworth and Final Writer can be superb, mixing crisp colour graphics with clear text at the full 360dpi.
Fewer features present themselves to the user from the front panel than you might expect from a printer in this price range, but the instructions for automatic head cleaning and selecting one of the seven built-in fonts are clearly given on the underside of the flip-up covering panel, making this one very simple little beast to use.
Though there are no macro settings for the user's favourite print set-ups, an easy configure mode can be used to switch between 14 different print standards, from mono on plain paper to full colour on coated paper or acetate transparency.
In addition, colour registration is easily tested and reset if the printer starts to blur the detail on colour output.
For those in need of quality presentation at a reasonable price, this latest Canon release is one of the better options, and worth a long hard look.

AMIGA GUIDE ¦ At last, the secrets of the AmigaGuide are about to be let loose.
Steve White delves deep into a text creator that could change ReadMe docs forever!

* text documents have been with 1 since the dawn of software and
t affectionately become known as f docs.
¦ ReadMe doc is still used now and ply a text file that the programmer written in order to explain his or her ! Without the need for a complex . The docs are loaded into some f text viewer such as More, PPMore

Nately, these text viewers often only forward and backward ng with no cross-referencing abili- I no menu in which to select a spe- pic. However, with the release of ench 3.0 all this has changed and at last, the ReadMe doc will e a thing of the past, f core to this change is a program MultiView that resides in the ties drawer of Workbench 3.0. jfiew is a universal application that »the user to read IFF text files, view ipped picture files, play IFF sound cl Cawtircm,aHHi«Tuicrm ML keicc*?

ESSENTIALS i order to follow this tutorial vou will I certain files on your Workbench You will need Multiview, the aGuide.guide DataType in your sDataTypes drawer, AmigaGuide ' in the LIBS: directory, datatypes.
' in the LIBS: directory, and some f text editor such as Ed, AZ or . With these files you will be able ow the tutorial with no problems, nvenience, I will be using Ed.
I AmigaGuide is very similar to a de doc in many respects but pro- : crucial improvements. Instead nply scrolling backwards and for- i you can now. Click on buttons in go straight to certain topics, use ; to add cross-referencing points t text as you would with a pro- al word processor, f AmigaGuide.guide DataType also des a useful menu for controlling t AmigaGuide much like that of a become fully proficient at writing Guides you will need to learn the Don't worry, it isn't difficult at case Ed. Open the Shell and type the following, pressing Return at the end: ed raa:QurGuide This will
create a text file in RAM called OurGuide. You will be presented with the editing window for input and are now ready to create your first AmigaGuide... An AmigaGuide is broken into pages, called Nodes. You can assign a button to a Node and when you click on it it will jump to that page. Each Node (page) can have as much text on it as required, and you can scroll through the text using the horizontal and vertical scroll bars of MultiView.
A page begins with the Node command and ends with the EndNode command, your text being written in between the two. We will examine these two commands in greater detail later on.
The first thing we have to do is tell MultiView what kind of DataType this is.
We do this by typing the following line: 9DATABASE wigaguide.guide The @ symbol is used to tell MultiView that the following text is a command, in this case DATABASE. This informs MultiView that the file is a database and that it should load the AmigaGuide.guide DataType in the Devs:DataTypes drawer.
Because of this, MultiView now knows how to run the file when we load it.
The next command is REM or REMARK and these can be entered anywhere and are simply used as reference pointers for you, the programmer. They are ignored when the AmigaGuide is executed. Type in the following command using your own name; HER Migi Coipwting *pigiGv dt - by Stephen Rhite WORDWRAP is the next command that we need to type in. You don’t necessarily need this command but it makes life easier when writing the AmigaGuide. What it effectively does is wordwrap any text that floods over the MultiView screen dimensions much like a word processor does.
When writing your text in Ed you will notice that you can continue writing past the right margin. The Wordwrap command pushes 'overhanging' text onto the next line. So, type in the following to finish the setting up procedure of your AmigaGuide: aVORDVRAP We mentioned Nodes earlier and said that they indicate specific pages of text. In order for MultiView to successfully run the AmigaGuide we need to create a menu Node called MAIN which MultiView then looks for and runs as a contents page.
You can then call subsequent Nodes by any name. You must not have spaces in a Node name. Type in the following: MODE RAIN ‘Ry First AaigiGuide - Intro" This line creates a Node called MAIN (the contents page) and titles the window "My First AmigaGuide - Into". MultiView displays .all AmigaGuides in a window. We can now learn about and create a couple of buttons and some text.
Text can be entered anywhere and requires no command statement.
Anything not preceded with a @ is understood bv MultiView to be text. To add some text type in the following; This is tht first Aaigi6uidc which I hive written with tie help of tie Aiigi Coaputing AaigiGuide Tutorial. Never again will I use 1 ReadAe doe.

Don’t worry if your lext scrolls off the right margin in F.d because we have invoked the Wordwrap command. Now save your AmigaC.uide (do this regularly from now on).
There are certain formatting commands you can add to text in order to make it bold, italic or underlined and we will explain this procedure later in the Advanced section. Next, let’s create ourselves two buttons.
In order to create a button we must link it to a Node. Buttons are simple to create and are very user-friendly. First type in the example below: i("Click nt for Help* UHK help} Sctltek He for Info* LINK INFO) The above two lines will create two buttons for us. Let’s find out how.
The @| indicates that what follows is intended to be a button. Whatever text is in the speech marks indicates the button name - this can be anything you like. The LINK command tells MultiView to link the button with a Node (in our case called HELP and INFO). When you click on the buttons MultiView will jump to the corresponding Node. The 1 ends the button command.
As this is all we want on the MAIN (contents) page we must inform MultiView to stop reading any more commands or text into this page. We do this with the following command; iENONQDE Wfe have now defined an AmigaCuide Database and created our first Node, text and buttons. We can now enter the other Nodes - HELP and INFO so that when we click on the buttons MultiView jumps to these Nodes. Type in the following; The above text describes the two Nodes HELP and INFO.

3ENDN0DE iNODE mro ”Ry First kiigaGuidt • Info* Info Page I have written ttit AiigiGuide using the MultiView prograa and the AaigaCuide.guide Datatype in the fcevs:bstaTypes drawer.
Good, isn't ft?
3EHDV0DE Your AmigaGuide is now ready to run.
Quit out of Ed and then load up MultiView. Open up your AmigaGuide (OurGuide) from RAM and you will see your MAIN page with the buttons and text. Note the title in the window bar.
Now you can click on the buttons and you will be taken to the appropriate Nodes. To get back to the MAIN page click on the Contents button at the top of the MultiView window. This and the other buttons are always available as they are part of MultiView.

colour, ¦pti-aliased Amiga Diskfonts - otherwise mown as ColorFonts.
For those not involved in Amiga art, presentation or titling such a prospect will kardly generate unbridled excitement.
(However for those who fit the bill such a development is well worth the wait, f OK, lets assume you're still not convinced - after all there's a lot of reasonable tiality bitmapped fonts already out there which will do a respectable job for various tideographic endeavours.
However for the pro and semi-pro, productions respectable simply isn't good enough. Clients quite rightly expect the best and that's exactly what A2A offers.
Before moving on to the conversion process. It's perhaps worth clarifying why A2A conversion is so important. Basically, PostScript fonts are fine for DTP but for anything else they're next to useless as the vast majority of software simply doesn't
• upport them.
Even notables' such as Scala, Broadcast Titler II, TVPainl and Dpaint - to name but a few - will have nothing to do with Adobe fants directly. And if such fonts are contorted by normal means their silky smooth appeal is invariably destroyed by the lack of anti-aliasing.
According to the manual, approximately 25 per cent of PD Adobe Type l's won't convert properly, as they don't adhere to the Adobe standard - but after extensive testing of PC, Mac and Amiga fonts I didn't encounter a single failure.,. If you're concerned about font availability. Turn to the PD section and you'll discover massive selection to suit every conceivable taste. However if you simply can't wait there's no need for panic, as two extra disks containing 52 Adobe Type l's ship with A2A.
Assuming you've loaded a font, you'll be confronted with the program's split screen interface which consists of three preview windows showing the anti-aliased, Amiga and cached examples of the font. The upper half holds the main control panel.
Working from left to right, the upper panel is split into four sections with the first concentrating on display and palette controls in addition to four resolutions ranging from lo-res 32 colour, lo-res interlace, hi-res non-interlace and finally hi-res laced - each of which can be toggled between at any time, SMOOTH EDGES When it comes to palette control you're provided with a pop-up requester full of colour wells, copy, paste and spread options alongside a variety of tools designed to simplify colour control. It's even possible to load palettes from existing graphics to further enhance
It's here where you can also specify the number of colours to be used. However it's worth stressing that the fonts generated are basically single colour creations which use the additional colours to generate smooth anti-aliased edges. In short you can forget any aspirations towards wacky gradient fills or bizarre patterns - that ain't the way it works.
In the next section, font styling is handled via point size, aspect, italics, filtering and contrast controls. Point size provides overall scaling of the font from 1 to 250 per cent. Although the feature does a perfect job of scaling any font, it's the only area in which the program falls down slightly.
Rather than adjusting the scale to a specific point size, the font is scaled as a percentage, and as a result scaling isn't point accurate. So for example, scaling up to 150 won't necessarily produce a font of 150 points - which obviously could cause problems later on in the production.
Next up comes aspect, which in simple terms means you can squash or stretch in the horizontal plain. Following that comes the italic option allowing angles in either the positive or negative up to 45 degrees.
Following this are the essential filtering options - otherwise known as anti-aliasing
- which take the form of five different filters, each of which
applies a different style and degree of anti-aliasing to the
Tvading Finally we come to contrast, which again is used to improve the anti-aliasing. Like all the other options, contrast shares in the benefits of the program's excellent interface which uses arrow gadgets for minor adjustment or pop-up mini requesters for larger places A!
3 Paul Austin explores A2A, the very latest in font conversion from Alternative Image slider driven alterations - and if that's not enough, you can even type in you alterations.
In the next section you can toggle through the entire character set in addition to altering the position of the font in the preview windows below.
Lastly you can specify whether to send a single character or the entire set into a memory cache; not an essential feature on faster machines but ideal for improved editing and font processing on slower Amigas.
In the last section you're given the essential loading and font generation options along with assorted font information. Basically that's about it. The actual output process is very simple with the only user input being the font name and target directory. Prior to output it's also possible to specif)’ that bold, italic, underlined and reverse flags which are used as part of the font definition, thereby enabling certain applications to generate the aforementioned variations.
However this function won't work forever)' package, as most programs have an individual approach to fonts. For example Dpaint won't recognise any of the aforementioned flags, although the basic font you generate works perfectly.
The bottom line !‘m impressed - the program performs beautifully, the end results are excellent and the interface personifies the very best of Amiga software design. For the pro it’s worth every penny and at just £50 it s well within reach of the hobbi- est. A great product which I'd recommend to any serious Amiga fan.
Better still. Alternative are now offering a combination of A2A and Scroller II
- their own A2A friendly video titler - for a special bargain
price of £100. Great news for any videographic newcomer who
wants quality output at an affordable price.

Yet another aid to improved productivity is the program's ability to use multiple assigns within the ImageFX Workbench environment. As a result you can now run user-defined versions from various directories.
Basically, this means that each time a version boots it can have its own default preset for a specific operation such as scanning, frame grabbing, video production or whatever.
Pandering to professionals is also high on the agenda with pressure-sensitive support for assorted drawing tools such as freehand and airbrush. However quite why a pro user would be painting within ImageFX as opposed to TVPaint, EGS or whatever else remains a mystery... The program's preferences requester has seen some fairly major changes with a variety of new preview modes, a new quantise option - used from palette generation - plus a much improved virtual memory set-up procedure which is now simpler and more reliable.
Another important new feature is multi-level undo which enables you to back-track over an entire sequence of edits if disaster strikes - and of course, ?
Raw processing ower!
Paul Austin looks at upgrades for ImageFX
vl. 50 and Clarity 16, both of which push the Amiga's processing
capabilities to the limits... Clarity 16 r the last year
Clarity’s software has evotved quite con- f - although the
hardware itself has remained the As a result it's high time
lor a second look at this ) and cheap introduction to 16-bit
Ajhough a true 16*bit sampler, Clarity isn't a direct-to : system. This facility was promised as a potential i when the product was first released but like many J hardware add-ons it failed to appear.
5U. Even without a D2D option, Clarity remains a useful I tool capable of limited Midi applications in addi- i to a dump and fetch facility for various sampling ! To tact the lack of the promised improvements to the are is Clarity’s only real drawback After all. How ! 16-bit samplers retail for just 099? Not many... However this doesn't excuse the hyperbole and subse- I disappointment that surrounded Clarity’s initial During this period the product's creators made a I ot noise about various add-ons and improvements - none of which have materialised.
Everything from DSP support to software-based drum sequencing was just around the comer; even SMPTE time- code was on the cards alongside the aforementioned D2D recording.
As a result, many a muso invested hoping that their commitment would be mirrored by Clarity's creators.
Unfortunately hardware revisions never materialised.
ATTENTION However the software has seen a lot of attention with the latest incarnation - v1.5 - boasting an all-new Workbench 2.0 look which now thankfully opens on its own screen, thereby avoiding the horrible clutter synonymous with its predecessors Another major change lurks within the Fast Amiga box, The old style box with delay values has been replaced with a simpler tick system which provides much more flexibility and control over the whole Amiga range, All of the program's horizontal sliders, such as those in the Real-time Effects window, now have a numeric value enabling much more
accurate recreation of previous settings The sample info requester is the most fundamentally changed; certain features have been repositioned lo give a more logical grouping of icons. All of the Loop features have been put in their own box, and the Seek Zero feature has gone completely - in favour of various new loop editing options.
Generally the program looks much slicker, the only problem bemg that the manual pictures are now horribly out of date. The manual is currently being revised and should be available in its updated form by the time you read this article.
Normalise no longer produces clicks and is now a very effective way of maximising the volume of a sample.
Recording is now exact (previously it left some space at the end of the sample).
One Amiga channel had a nasty habit of crackle during Amiga playback during real-time effects and scope use - this has been fixed. All scopes should now work on most Amigas, even fast ones and needles are now always in evidence on the VU-style meters.
Kill Samples has been added to the Project menu. It ¦UPDATES Magical col and paste with the new pantograph tool abilities do provide some very useful image processing options within existing artwork. For example it's ideal for adding special effects at particular points or within ranged stencilled areas of the image.
A perfect example of processing combined with panting power is the program's new pantograph tool which enables an area of the image to be selected and then duplicated elsewhere on the screen.
Good news for Yamaha owners Due to certain compatibility problems with the Yamaha SY99 keyboard, a couple Of new options have been added to the sample dump fetch facility.
Ordinarily when receiving sample data from a keyboard under the Midi standard protocol, the individual data packets are acknowledged by the receiving machine. This allows for packets to be re-transmitted in case of error.
However, Yamaha have decided to ignore this and just pump out sample data in a continuous stream. This means that acknowledging the header and packets is not only redundant but also possibly damaging in terms of the software's ability to pick up all of the incoming data.
As a result SY99 users can now set this option to Off. Whereas most users should leave it on.
Because the SY99 has no facility for recovering packets received with a checksum error, it can appear to drop packets from time to time when receiving long 16-bit samples. This means that although the Amiga has finished transmitting, the SY99's display will still show it waiting for one or two packets, and pressing Exit leaves a click at the end of the sample.
If this happens, you can now set this option to On and Clarity will transmit one initial blank packet before the sample data and then five extra blank packets at the end, COPIED j E ?
Undo can still be disabled entirely when necessary.
On the user-friendly side an option to disable verify requesters has been added
- no more "do you really want to...” messages - but better
still GVP have finally added an aspect lock which stops the
program stretching the image to fill the preview. So what you
see is what your image actually looks like... ImageFX will now
automatically default to AGA when running on Workbench3.0
machines, but in addition the aforementioned Super Amiga modes
can also play a part.
THIRD-PARTY Now any mode listed in the Amiga's display database can be used as a default preview mode, but better still third-party display devices can also be used as part of the preview repertoire. As a result DCTV and OpalVision can be used for previews in addition to the IV-24, Firecracker and HAM-E.
Frame grabbing and digitising have also seen some attention with support for the entire Epson range of scanners in addition to the Vlab digitiser. As you'd expect, the program's scan control options have been enhanced to take advantage of the additional features offered from the new hardware.
Moving on to creativity GVP assures that almost all the drawing tools have been either enhanced or improved in some way. As a result for now we'll concentrate on the newcomers.
As mentioned earlier, the palette has been improved with six new draw palettes each holding up to 256 colours each, but alas one aspect of painting within ImageFX hasn't changed, namely the actual application of colour.
Like its predecessor, the new program still insists on applying the brush stroke first followed the colour later after the operation is complete. As a result ImageFX still remains very much a second choice as a painting environment.
Until GVP realise that serious artists require real-time feedback, ImageFX will always be primarily an image processor with a paint package tacked on as an afterthought.
To be fair, the program’s painting This should not be confused with a brush as the original data doesn’t change; it's simply copied or cloned else- where by using the tool of you choice to replicate the original data in its new location.
Generally speaking, most features have seen at least minor improvement as indeed have the program's I O options which now boast more control and variety with support for FAXX, 1MG8 and Sculpt along with much improved jPeg handling plus MacBinary TIFFs, GIFs, Jpegs and Targas. Animation also scores well with support for loading and si both Anim5 and Anim7 in additai FLI and FLC PC formats - most i monlv used by AutoDeck on the PC| Another innovation is the arri J Magic buffers which if adopted by will enable various programs to l the same image data held within I ory - in a similar manner
to HotL Only time will tell if Magic buffe succeed where others such systems!
Finally the program's printing have also seen some much needed tion with improved printing from| prefs and as PostScript. And of i with new features comes a huge ar additional Arexx commands.
For the existing user base I’dl upgrading is a must as many of the ¦ lems associated with vl.03 are L gone for good to be replaced bM impressive range of new and impi* features.
For more details contact Svstemson 081-309 1111.
Clears out all of the samples currently in memory - subject to confirmation. Another new addition is the Tidy windows facility which resizes and stacks all open sample windows in the top left comer of the screen, while Panel to Front brings the control panel to the fore when obscured by others.
Assorted keyboard short-cuts have also been added; Amiga-1 brings up a sample's Info dialogue, block looping can be activated with Amiga-T while Clarity Amiga output can be toggled via Amiga-1 and Amiga-2 keys respectively.
Finally the Save file formats function have been extended to include three and five-voice 8$ vx files.
Previously only one voice was supported. As you can see the software has come a long from its initial release and now ranks alongside the Amiga's best recording and editing systems.
In short. Clarity is perhaps the perfect budget buy for anyone with a sampling keyboard who wants to expand their horizons at the minimum expense.

find that the prices of Utili-
- and games seem to only make them ?ble once a month, or even
once a when Mr and Mrs Santa Gaus are feel- ingly generous,
only other alternatives are to start ning yourself or, more
easily, take at the public sector for utilities and assorted
oddities that may come in 1 and, at the cheaper price, are y
more tempting than delving into lex world of coding software -
for being.
R checking out the regular Public feature, you spot a couple that show : and order them. In a few days, they on your doormat.
"g them up, you realise that there a hard disk install option. A few clicks mouse button later, the screen doesn't y helpful information - it seems that are doomed to floppy disk as far as PD is concerned, unless... INSTALLERS ’ programs, whether commercial or domain, don't usually have hard disk installers for the software. This is lo either sheer laziness on the part of grammers, or the more legitimate that making a product hard drive ble tempts the grubby hands of to download every game they can hands on into their hard drive for illegal distribution, nately, there is a way to transfer bon
off a floppy onto the hard drive 1 use. First of all, make sure that I floppy is inserted in the drive, over to your DHO icon and open the r‘ e.
Ly drag the floppy icon and place it DHO window. The lights on the corn- representing both hard and floppy will flash on and off for a while until has finished and all information has fed and transferred, done, eject the floppy and open the drawer that has appeared in the hard Inside, you should find the contents copied disk. Try double clicking on ram’s boot icon to see if it will load time out of ten, a window will pop ; you that there is no disk in DFO drive).
Reset the computer and you'll prob- find (unless you're extremely luckv) Systew Request Please insert volwe Motoro Ia1 in any drive ¦ • wmm Retry Cancel ¦ ¦¦¦¦ ' TT away the DHO symbol).
In simple terms, assigning files and the like is like a diversion on the road - it tells the computer to take a different route as Specified by you, the user.
Select the Shell icon and a window will open; type in: The ed stands for edit as in changing the current set-up, s stands for the directory that you wish to alter - the computer will always hunt out this particular directory whenever hying to boot a program up.
The colon is important for defining each partition - each "wall" between different directories, drawers and files so that the computer can recognise they are separate.
User-startup is the actual area in which you want to make the changes - anything in here is not automatically booted by the com* puter on switching on but requires the user to select and tell the computer to boot it in.
That same problem still exists. This is simply down to the fact that tlx* startup part of the program is telling computer that it will find the rest of the information in the floppy drive so therefore bypassing the hard disk altogether.
This can be overcome in most cases by the use of the assign option, This is a typed-in command used in the Shell system (the icon is usually found under flBiqaShell Shell process T The Shell box when the editor con be colled up and the Assign command typed In : fJ sluser-startup Assigning your files |mj Funky Fun... not A drawer will appear la the hard drlvt window with the floppy i contents Without the correct Assign command, the computer becomes a tad confused On pressing Return, you'll be presented with another window representing the user- startup. Simply find a clear line and type in:
This simple command tells the computer that the floppy disk info that program needs can be found in a specified directory in a certain drawer on the hard drive. For example - Assign Funky Fun: DHO: Funky Fun.
Once this is done, press on the box gadget in the top left-hand comer and you will be asked by the computer if you wish to save the changes you have made. Hit the Y key, then reset the machine and have a go at loading your program from the hard disk.
Unfortunately, this process doesn't always work but don't worry, I'll be back next month to take you a stage further along that twisty, windy road of Amiga Shell commands and libraries...

Amiga Computing March 1994 There’s quite a selection of titles this month, from games and music demos to handy utilities and superb animations.
Amiga PD seems to be maintaining its excellent standard by producing useful and entertaining products. Keep sending in the soft ware - the more variety and diversity Blighty, Commodore needed to get its foot in the metaphorical door, grab a fair size of the game playing public this Christmas and reap the benefits. Unfortunately, from where I'm sitting, they've missed their golden opportunity.
Surprisingly, one of the last places you'd expect to find public domain and shareware programs is on a CD, but it's now possible to lay your hands on over 200 different titles (perhaps Commodore commis* PUBLIC SECT* As the air warms and the frost thaws, Adam Phillips peruses the latest PD releases with a spring-time passion sioned this to reach their software taigfl Each volume contains 100 program* ¦ the first disk has a selection of demos m animations.

Like Atari, the once big boys have suffered cruelly at the invasion of the consoles and at the hands of the software pirates. Kids are interested in games and don’t really care much where they get them from.
Enter the Mega Drives and Super Nintendo* of this world and you have a revolution of buyers on your hands with the majority opting for a single purpose machine to hammer away at a joypad on.
Then, with a huge burst of inspiration and surprise, Commodore released the CP32, an A1200 with a CD-ROM drive and no keyboard.
Backed up with promises of dozens of titles available by the time Christmas rolled around and an anticipation whipped up bv the Amiga mags (including this one), things looked set to be a startling success.
Well, as usual, the ideal promises and hopes have fallen to the wayside to reveal a much more realistic and therefore unfortunate situation.
While there have been a dozen or so releases, nearly every one has been a direct port over from existing software found, in some cases, on your trusty A500.
And while the games themselves may well be good in many respects, they are not the flagship products like Sonic, Mario and Starwing that the CD32 needs to help it make a real impact on the market.
Even the likes of the excellent Liberation from games maestro Tony Crowther lacks the instant "buy me now!"
Appeal that has sold so many consoles in the last couple of years.

and professionals alike as an excellent machine for computer
animation, effects and other film and video oriented jobs.
Animation is a big favourite of the people in the office - the editor and asso ate editor regularly hammer out short sequences on Imagine 2.9. imagine, if you will, my delight when this little beauty inconspicuously fell fr- Of an envelope and straight into my disk drive and turned out to be so good.
The lengthy black and white anim tells the story of the CD wars where the Me

with a hum- deity overlooking the affairs.
After comparing each others capabilities, this being decides the fate of ea; competitor and surprise, surprise, the CD32 comes Out on top leaving the othe as they morph into gravestones on the track to hell.
This may sound a little bizarre and tacky, but compared to the cruddy advert; television at the moment which boasts a large robot blowing up while play* Microcosm “‘COS it canna handle captan", this animation is a work of commerc art with well used, not overtly elaborate and. Dare I say it, pretty well directed.
Included are various controls for speeding up and slowing down as well pausing the action. On the downside, it eats up a fair size amount of memor 1Mb of chip RAM and at least 3Mb of fast RAM.

T's vour job as the heroic duck figure ove through 20 levels split between If worlds including Brick City, Quackers Programmed by: M.Pratt Available from Michael Pratt Twwspeet?
Christmas Land and Duck Land. By moving across platforms, collecting fruit and other goods, the object of each screen is to grab all the keys and make for the exit without being killed, maimed or the time running out.
Part of vour lethal arsenal of weapons are fried eggs that seem to have a diverse effect on the foe. On completing each world, it’s onto killing the end of level baddie which in this case, is very easy indeed and looks like a post box.
The game works relatively well but lacks the polish to make it noteworthy.
There is no animation on the main sprite and it has a tendency to stutter across the screen instead of moving smoothly and seamlessly.
Quackers is by no means a bad game, requiring skill and precise timing in some places but it just looks like an idea that Ivvt Wl Due to the CDI2s superior features, turbine objects morph from the back of the tar In excellent computer rendering The CD32 tor literally files down the track at a gravestone ol the CD!
Motor spins on the track below CD32 WINS!
R=r?n could have been exploited more and worked much better - perhaps by including a two player option to make it even more like Team 17's excellent Qwak.
Klondike Deluxe AGA Programmed by: Remy Nusteling and Koos Roodbol Available from: Exclusive PD This traditional card game, like many others, has now reached the chips of your local computer courtesy of the PD scene.
On looking at the pictures, you may think that this is another venture into the smutty underworld of pornography.
Well, perhaps strictly it Ls - scantily clad women in suggestive positions - but on closer inspection the images are a hark back to the titillation days of the 50s put together with an absorbing game, providing harmless fun for the average male player (like Biff, our Gamer editor, who says he can't stop) when compared to the hardcore, explicit nature of the material accessible to most children with a computer and disk drive from the more seedy PD libraries and bulletin boards.
The game itself is an addictive and challenging title of strategy, logic and the vital ingredient, luck, where the player must put all the cards in the relevant suits whilst not trapping yourself in a no-win situation - very similar to Patience.
The presentation is of a high standard, whether or not you agree with the material on display, - solid AGA renditions of the cards are polished and professional, the only problem being a certain glitch running across the card faces once in a while.
If vou're a cards fan and own either an Amiga 1200 or 4000, this is a cheap computerised version of a classic solo game.
Footy Programmed by: Andy Mac Available from: Virus Free PD For those of us with a dream of winning the pools one day then Footy could help us take a step closer to making fiction become a realitv. A dedicated database, this mouse-driven, user friendly program allows you to keep track of what's happening in the football league.
The user is able to enter all current information about any team. By tapping in a mass of details including home wins draws losses, goals scored and conceded as well as away info, a full picture can be drawn up for the avid footy fan.
Also included is a forecast routine which attempts to tell you who'll draw in that vital next match, Be warned though; in the author's own words: "Obviously, it is not entirely accurate or 1 would not be sitting here writing..." Footy receives the public sector seal of approval because if it does give you a better chance of winning then it has to be recommended.
The Ultimate Icon Editor Programmed by: John Scheib Available from: Virus Free PD Disk No 393 Last month's excellent Magic Workbench offered a large selection of different features for your Amiga from various backdrops to programs to alter the squeaks and ?
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. Address9 Adam Phillips. PD submissions.
Amiga Computing Europa House. Adlington Park.
Macclesfield SK104NP squawks made by your machine. Its only limiting omission, while providing the user with some very tasteful icons, was the lack of a large library of both images for icons and differing sound samples.
The former has been seen to now with the release of the Ultimate Icon Editor which has both a collection of dozens of icons for use as drawers, files and any other opportunity you can think of, and a drawing package for the design of your own miniature works of art.
The pictures provided range from basic disk symbols that simply invert colours when clicked on to various symbols that change when activated The standard of these pictures are not up to the plushness of the small amount offered by the Magic Workbench but is high enough to be attractive and effective.
It's a worthwhile purchase with useful facilities to make even the most ugly of screens start to show its true colours.

Available from: Paul Lathwell Address Print is a useful
program for labelling packages and other postal items.
By using the simple and easy to use point'n'dick interface, the user is able to create a single or an entire database of address labels to be used at home or work.
On offer are an extensive list of controls for precision printing such as label pitch, style, colour of writing, left margin size and a draft or near letter quality selector.
The package also includes a Doc Dump, a printing utility, that reduces the amount of paper required to print an Ascii file on a Epson 9-pin printer.
This is a useful and worthwhile product that could come in very handy for home users and small business owners alike.

Morch I m GMIfHR (J) Star Trek When Star Trek beamed itself aboard the Gamer shuttle craft I undertook 0 solemn oath, along with other red jerseys among us, not lo indulge in any Trekky-type rhetoric.
But, rial five words into the opening stanza and look, Star Trek-type utterances ore splattered across the page like so many Klingons after a ryn in with Jomes T Kirk.
The point is dear reoder, that love it or hole it, Star Trek is one of the most infamous programmes ever to groce the tube of a TY set, To celebrate this much maligned fact and to say happy 25th birthday to all the crew, Interplay have released Star Trek The 25th Anniversary.
While not the most imaginative title to be dreamed up by the marketing departments, ifs very direct and leaves you in no doubt at all what it's on about.
The first and probobfy most important thing to say is that all the stories and missions in Star Trek feature the crew in their prime back in the heody 60s.
Most folk quite enjoy the special effects that technology has heralded and agree the oil-new Enterprise is kitted out with far better equipment and decorated far more tastefully, but 25 years in spoce hove left the crew a tod haggard ond worn.
No amount of techno wizardry or plenitude of surgical trusses con reduce the pounch poor Scotty has developed, or the look in his eye that soys that death is but 0 dilithium crystal away for tbe chief engineer.
Sulu has completely lost his ninja skills and no longer strips to the waist after turning psychotic at the Enterprise parties. McCoy pawned his medical kit because tbe bags under his eyes are so huge he con keep his Tricorder in them, Uhura is now a Grandmother and can't hear a thing that crackled across the radio waves of spoce, while Soviet representative for the federation Chekov has a speech impediment so severe that can't tell his "yesseb" from his "yodka".
Even the big cheese himself, Tames T, has hod severe problems, ond during a freak transporter Occident bad his hair replaced by a strip of shag pile carpet.
As for poor Spock, the pioneer of the combed forward hairdo, he's developed a personality, took on a day job on Mission Impossible, saved up his money and bought himself a set of para* itaic sexual choroCterislics ond now ages at the same rote as a human.
Ihe 35th Anmrsa WHIZZING Star Trek begins in much the same manner as tbe TV show, with the Enterprise whizzing past you, while the musk we're all accustomed to bounces merrily along. Then, to make things even more akin to Gene Roddenberry's creation, you get the title of the episode, or mission.
Once on the bridge of the Enterprise, the game unfolds ond control of the main characters becomes yours. On the bridge eoch of these characters has specific tasks to perform. Eoch of these corresponds to the role the character took on in the show itself.
For example, Sulu is responsible for taking the Enterprise in and out of orbit, whereas his counterpart Ensign Chekov controls the navigation and the weapons system.
However, when it comes to control of the aforementioned systems it's you who guides them and fires those lethal phasers and photon torpedoes.
The ship itself has all the systems that you'd expect of the Enterprise for you to take care of, L _ m 4 9 r • Lieutenant Commander Scott The ultimate grease monkey. Whether it be the precious dilithium crystals (of which there seems to be only a handful in the universe) or a flat tyre, Scottie s your man.
Is afflicted with the worst Scottish accent ever and is obviously a fake unless he hails from some minute island in the North Sea that doesn't have a Scottish accent.
Take it t Lieutenant Sulu Sulu is the model officer and perfect helmsman. That is until he starts faitta sising about Bruce Lee movies. Then In strips off to the waist, starts bitching m the other crew members and eventual} picks a fight It's commonly believed that he's jeal ous of the captain, because the girl wife the clipboard who gets Jim to sign her autograph book every episode never asks him.
There's Klingont on the starboard bow. Blimey. I've got some on the seat of me pants now as well Captain Kirk Lieutenant IdlL.fljSi unhid Fr:o€«rt?ioH tjJLLU
* h i» "wiicci This is the map Chekov uses to guide the
Enterprise to mysterious planets.
Personally I'd have bought an A to Z Morch 1994 So, Mr Space Pirate, you have two minutes on your specialist subject; Being outwitted by a bloke in a yellow jersey and a corset Commander McCoy McCoy is the ship s senior surgeon and a dab hand at fixing people up by waving that torchshaped thing over them. This «* a good thing a$ he has a severe drink problem and the only correct diagnoses he ever gives is that of death.
¦ Involved In a love triangle with that blonde nurse I who slinks around the medical bay, and Spock.
¦Mi Wears a nice tight yellow jumper which means that he stands no chance of getting killed and is the captain of the ship. Possesses some real hard stares and dips his trousers in pheremone which means that he gets the alien dolly bird every week.
It's time to coin as many cliches as is humanly possible and boldly go where no reviewer has gone before _Capt. Kirk choice 1_ I am Captain James T. Kirk of the U.S.S. Enterprise. We have received word that alien lif ©forms are creating problems at your mininj facilities in Idyll [Mountain. Tell me more._ fcc he bridge Having beamed down to a dubious area of Manchester, Jim makes small talk with a transvestite Ensign Pavel Chekov Cbekov is the ship's communication officer and Ms says a lot for the efficiency of the ship due to the severity of his speech impediment which renders him impossible
to understand.
Subsequently, this has made it extremely hard for him to keep his grubby Russian mitts off the totty for five years. Loves beaming down to those planets which are a reflection of seme stage of earth's development in case it turn out to be the Parisian whorehouse isode (you know, the one Spock couldn't see it logic In).
Commander Spock Mr Logic himself is haW Vulcan and half eunuch. Before becoming the brainiest man in the universe, Spock worked in a massage parlour but had to leave after rendering most of the customers unconscious.
Once did a mind meld with John Major and after finding there was nothing there donated his sense of humour to him.
Ond these are all displayed on the bridge disploy.
It's the pessimistic Scotty who lakes control of the shields and power, ond when the ship's engines get stressed he1 gleefully scream “the engines canna take it cap'nl* in o Scotch Conodian occent.
Principally, you take on the role of Kirk who orders the other crew members to perform tasks on his beholf. For instance, if on object requires looking at, then via your instruction, Kirk will instruct the relevont crew member cony out your command.
As far as the missions ore concerned, there ore eight of them in total. They blend a combination of control of ihe Enterprise to o planet or on hostile region of space with beaming down a crew to the surface to Investigate a mystery.
Using the trvsty mouse for control, Star Trek styles its play in much the same way as Monkey Island. This poinl and dick system of movement is used In combination with o set of embarrassing to watch. One example is a digitised onimotion of the Enterprise orbiting o planet. This is so jerky the first time I witnessed it I was going to osk Scolty to stop at the next services and have a look under the bonnet.
The other main gripe is the control system.
Something that is a very user friendly ond easy to become fomilior with is ruined by the terrible display and sluggish way in which your mouse pointer staggers around the screen.
While we're on this destruction of the Enterprise ond her beloved crew, I might os wel mention the foct that the gome comes on eight disks. This having been said, it's a big gome, and "you canno change the laws of physics4. So, you're going to need a block hole Ml of patience or a hard drive to enjoy playing Star Trek.
On the whole though, Star Trek is on enjoyable graphic odventure that most folk will take to, and a definite must for the myriod of Trekky freaks in red jerseys out there.

As Jim, your prime directive is not to destroy everything in sight, but to liaise with diplomacy by communicating. Talking is handled in much the some way os Monkey Island, with you given various options of whot to say lo a so*d character.
Again, like so many things in Star Trek, its graphical look is very much in the some vein os titles like Monkey Island. Obviously this isn't o bod thing ond the gome's design is effective In the sound deportment, Star Trek is authentic enough ond all the dicky noises and whoops that occur during the show Hove been sampled ond used.
Star Trek hos a lot of plus points to it. The missions require you to use at least a touch of your grey matter, ond they’re engoging ond fun because of the TV show style of representation Interplay have opted for.
On the downside, I found that some of the animated sequences were very jerky ond qvite Mofth 1994 GANEft jj) PQDDOCK MOP The biggest movie of all-time ond I didn't see it, but I did watch the dreaded hype machine roll into action. I may have missed the film, but I can tell you the storyline, who played who and what dinosours were in it. It's all thanks to the mass media who went "dino" crazy for a month last year.
While everyone was enthusing about how good the film was, Ocean, leoding software house for film licences, were carefully planning their Jurassic ottock. Ocean's Manchester offices were constantly bustling with workers morning, noon and night trying to finish Jurassic Park.
By the time they had eventually completed their task, the Dino fever hod calmed down, but along come Ocean with the game that every kid wanted and probably got for Christmas, For those not familiar with Jurassic Park, here's a quick run down of the plot. Thanks to astounding bio-technical advances, a group of scientists have brought back to life the most awesome creatures ever to walk the face of the earth.
These beasts are not just for scientists though, because multi millionaire John Hammond has decided to turn the most incredible animal presente of aH-time into a theme park.
As Dr Alan Grant, a world-renowned palaeontologist, you have been invited to examine the cloned dinosaurs. The creatures are monitored and controlled by a huge super-computer and you have been assured that you can explore the island ond see these breathtaking dinosaurs in complete safety.
But something has gone terribly wrong, b always does. Jurassic Park's computer progro mer, Dennis Nedry, has sabotaged the sear- systems. Electrified fences and motion seme are down and hundreds of fearsome prehisic predators have escaped their pens and pm An ideal opportunity for a bit of toilet humour! If* quite dirty. Shame there isn't any Toilet Dochiasaur about!
Well, It'S certainty not EuroOisney, although from what I can gather EuroOisney is far more horrifying!

Having raped and pilloged your way around r fathers boat, you and the crew take her leave i singing a pirate-like ditty, confident in the that she's fallen in love with your nonit, happy-go-lucky altitude.
Unfortunately, the reality of the situation was I in the first place you'd have been press- l into joining the bond of miserable deck No smart tunic, no shiny boots. Just a dirty sock shirt, gangrenous beord and a green } that follows you around everywhere, rven these parameters for your apporel ond ital look, it comes as no surprise that the »'s more cbonce of the beautiful senorita run- | off with Captain Pugwosh than your good i the reality of the situation it's a good job r the imagination of Hollywood and computer !

i over a period of some 150 years, taking [• the mantle of o
Brit or o number of now EC | ®«mbers who we English weren't
very friendly [Wi at the time.
If becoming a Spanish pirate, or a French ] adventurer Isn't enough to satiate your desire for plundering friendly, defenceless traders, then you can don the garb of a famous explorer or one of the more infamous rogues to sail tbe high seas.
Having pondered over whether to play Captain Morgan or Francis Droke, you have the opportunity to moke a few other choices that hove o direct bearing on your future.
For example, you can adjust the difficulty level and more importantly select your special ability.
This ronge of skils varies from expertise with fl sword through to charm with officials and more importantly, the lodies.
Once you've deliberated over your options, it's time to cast off ond heod out into (be blue and briny. The basic aim is to journey around various oreas of the Caribbean strengthening your ship, bolstering your band of jolly Jock tars and seek* ing your fortune.
There are various ways to achieve this most roguish of task, each of which revolve around piracy on the high seos. You could choose to work for the governor of a particular island, following orders and reaping the rewords that being in his employ bring.
Alternatively, you con follow your own instinct and take to the briny in search of untold treasures ond wreck havoc in the shipping lanes of the traders, purely for your own benefit.
However, a life on the ocean waves is also fraught with clanger for pirates. For one, there ore quite a few other pirgft- type people knockina oround the sea lanes who've been at it for longer thon you will have been (you can generally assume that by the fact that they can do a better "Ho ha Jim lad" than youj.i Also your crew need their feed, grog and plundering; morale must be kept at o level which keeps them subdued. Failure to maintain your boys results in a mutiny, which ultimately means you ending up in a rowing boat in just your ponts with your tricorn showing.
"Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum", "on a dead man's chest", and other piracy*type conversational titbits ¦ it's time for some treasure that's been rediscovered on your CD32 Keeping everybody on board smiling means landing at friendly ports to stock up on food, baare ond debauchery. It also serves as a fine opportunity to charm the town's gentry and perhaps find yovrself a gossiping wife who may reveal the location of daddy's assets.
All of the sailing and fighting is displayed using on overhead view. You control your ship's direction ond can increase ond decrease your speed using your masts and sails.
The outcome of a battle can depend on many different things. For instance, if the wind is light then you con get cought and stand a good chance of catching a brood side.
However, if everything is favourable the basic objective is to render the enemy immobile and then maraud with your greasy boarding party.
Once you've boarded, the play alters to a sword fight between you ond tbe opposing captain, the winner taking the spoils.
This updated version of MicroProse's eoriier release doesn't differ too greatly apart from a really neat ray traced animated intro and a proper Cornish pirate-type jig soundtrock.
Although there don't seem to be too mony radical chonges from the original Pirates, the whole gome seems to benefit from boftv the slick occessing of a CD, and the atmospheric advantages this media grants you.
On the whole Pirates is a more-thon-playable foray into the folly of days of olde, when men were men ond parrots were either quiet or Huffed. .

I'd guess probably a few times, but not as many os yours truly, wta sees replicas of the same game ideas repeated several times a week Oddly enough, the most common done of al is the racing game. After oil if you make a bog-standard platformer, ot least the character con look slightly different from the last you saw.
But in be racing drtwt, there's only one definitive set of tracks, one set of cars with ita same markings and one set of named driver?, As a rule, cor races ore the type of game I've always revelled in ond enjoyed, but there does come a time when a genre becomes 'tyred' and the proverbiof 'exhaust' becomes exha sted.
This is not to say hat there hasn't been a boot-lood of dossics along the wav You've only get to toke a little look at the likes ot Formula 1 Grand Prix or Vroom to appreciate what a classy racing gome's driving at.
Uncannily enough, the link here is that Domork s latest offering to be gomes world is programmed by non other than Lankhor, the people behind Vroom.
On yer marks, get set, oil, go on then, wiggle that joystick I don't know taw many of you remember Vroom, but let me tell you it was o classic. French software house lankhor worked wonders ond probably produced the fastest Formulo 1 racing game ever for the Amiga Well, now they're bock with their second offering with the full ond unadulterated approval of the motor roong sports governing body, the FIA. What bis means is ttaf the gome con feature oil the offi- cid tracks, drivers, constructors ond advertisers Someone please correct me, but bar the odd name, everyone's used all of the above
without he official recognition of their product, so I don’t think it meon$ that much. However, it's o nice touch I suppose, and will no doubt help F-1 to sefl a tod more easily.
That said, the proof is in the pudding and it's the pfay and look that will determine he success of his release. So wilh bis in mind lef s don our overois, walk gingerly over to the pits ond find out whether F-l is o blow out on the first lop, or o model snogging, champagne-spurting winner.
Playwise evWybmg begins in the Options menu, where you determine be type of race sou wont to run. You can decide to train on any of Inc 12 tracks bat form be world championship, to familiarise yourself.
You con also select on arcade version of F-l which puts you on be self some tracks, but asks you to overtake an increasingly larger number of cars to qualify for be next circuit. Lost but by no meons least is be ful blon World Championship mode At long last it's the green light.
The ideal opportunity to take on the mantle of Mr Mansell! Blame everybody for everything including your own mistakes and generally suffer from a strange accent... This puts you up ogoinst all the top drivers vying far structors in their battle to be the best, points over all be worlds top circuits, or allows you As usual in bis style of title you can odf to choose an individual track to compete on.

For example, selling wings in a low position grves you lew drag grv- i o higher top speed, whereos a high setting i in reverse ond mokes you slick like the 1 stuff.
Iu also have the opportunity to change your , the gearbox and just obout everything else . In foci, one of the only things you can't I is your underwear after you've careered into I od hoarding. Once you're on the grid you can IY TEARS elect to qualify or go straight into the actual race.
Attempting to qualify is probably the best policy as you hove a chance to improve your position on (he starting grid, rather than the default position to the rear of the grid After oH the preparation work, iKs finally lime to test your skill and nerve in ihe race. Graphically, F-l is very similar to its older brother Vroom, and has be same feel as it.
This is by no means a bod thing as Vroom not only looked good, but moved at a tremendous rote of knots If you'd like proof of the speed of F-l, just select the Turbo mode and watch your car fly around ihe track, if you have any trouble during ihe course of the race hen you can enter the good old pit lone Here you con get your mechanics to break into o sweat, changing your tyres or refuelling your sporty motor However, time being of the utmost Thb b the options kr*«« which is almost as interesting as Nigel Mansell importance in the high tech world of motor racing, you've no time to get yourself
o nice munchy bar or glonce of the overpriced topes, if"s straight back into the race.
Perhaps ihe best option of all is the two-player split screen game. This allows you to race against not only ihe other competitors, but also one of your motes To a large extent F-1 is very similar to its older brother Vroom with a few alterations. This said, it's a quality product and rans extremely smoothly on the Atari In fact, I'd go os far os to say that F-l could become the definitive arcode racer on the AMIGA.

£25.99 II HD '"Stall ? No Size 1 meg Labyrinth Another purpose-built CD32 game's about to come crashing into your shops, but only as long you can find your way through... I am a spirit now. For a i I haue dreomed ir.
The ian4 o( the deed Oh no, another subway beggar after 10p for a cup of tea Now, before you jump lo all the wrong conclusions let me reassure you. Labyrinth has nothing to do with the film of the some name.
There's no crooning thin while duke with a pair of cKp*on ears and there's no mup* pets with Frank Oz's arm stuffed up their reor portion.
Labyrinth of Time, to use its full title, is lib nothing ever to grace the pages of this mogazine before. Converted from the PC by American programmers Electronic Arts, Labyrinth is strictly for the CD32.
The main reoson for this is the fact that the 3D images and locations you visit in this adventure title are dl rendered using 256-colour ray tracing techniques, before I go any further its got to be In Maze ('enter taring north In a tomh taring south This lovely Greco door entrance is offset by two matching effigies Labyrinth open and close things and take and move things.
It's reminiscent of the very old school of adventure gomes which rather than using a party of cliched adventures, use you as the principle character and display your view on the screen.
Because of the fact that Labynnth uses you OS the hero rather than a strapping band of do- gooders, there are less controls ond statistics to be concerned, or rather confused obout.
I have to say at this point that I found Labyrinth totally engrossing and the most involving title that I’ve hod the good fortune to get my hands on. This surprises me to a certain extent as I never thought that this type of title could titillate me OS much as it has.
One of the main reasons for this is the unusual nature of the plot and some of the bizorre locations thot you have to visit. The other thing that strikes you is the fact thot there is little or no violence in it ot all.
In fact, thus far I've not encountered any nasties at all. This is quite refreshing as most odven- fures cram as many naff skeletons ond dumb ores in to them as is possible.
One of labyrinth's strengths is its story. At the beginning you know very little, but as you progress the plot develops in o very exciting but natural way. This is very cleverly manufactured and odds depth to the play, os the titbits you uncover acts as clues to the solving of the maze.
Also, the puzzles ore extremely odd but well thought out ond hove a nice feel of surreal com- mon-sensc about them. At this paint an example would be extremely convenient, but I know it would ruin the satisfaction you'll get when you solve them for yourself - honest it's no! A lome excuse to cover up for the fact that I didn't solve wy.
Graphically Labyrinth is unsurpassable, it just looks the dog's conkers ond it's full of nice graphical touches. One such touch within Labyrinth is the fact that you can examine objects by zooming in close on them, revealing them in their fufl ray-traced glory.
Most of the haunting nature that is captured within labyrinth is dawn to the sound track. It's a combination of ambient tunes and the Scotty Doo musk, but it wades tp greet effect ond really helps generate that all important atmosphere that normally is missed in most games.
There are olso o great deal of sound effects involved, with the music labyrinth boosts over 25Mb, even down to the sound of a toilet flushing - don't ask.
The bottom line is that Labyrinth is o superb addition to the adventure genre. It has amazing stylised graphics and a level of depth and playability seldom found in computer games these days. It's great news for punters who've put faith in Commodore and bought themselves a CD32, because this is a title which starts to truly show a little of the machine's capability.
If you own a CD32 I urge you to get down to your local computer emporium and buy this engrossing title, it'll have you grinning from ear to ear in no time.
SIMON CLAYS VISION 0000000 AUDIO 000000000 DIFFICULTY Blimilll LASTABILITY lobynnlti hos everything about it to mok« it a classic In the odventure games sphere A real winner with every element a piece ol computer software is supposed to have, superb in every deportment Publisher Electronic Arts Developer v Electronic Arts Pnce ? £24 99 GameR Tornado She flies like a bird in the sky, she flies through the air and I wish that she was mine... That's the Tornado folks, not Maggie or the Nimble ad, honest of moking those little mistakes and errors of judgement which inevitably change your
size from a stocky six foot to a very thin two miles.
Once you're happy that you're conversant with the displays and instrumentation and the most dangerous thing you're likely to do is mount the kerb when you reverse your Tornado into the garage, it's into the air with you.
Training features o total of ten different missions for you to sink your teeth into and in all cases when you've completed them you get a nice little tick from leocher.
Although it's not imperative to complete oil the training missions, each one gives you experience in aspects of the Tomodo flight parameters ond its different bombing techniques.
After some time rehearsing manoeuvres this pilot finally took to the air. There ore three different warzones to fly over, each featuring a total of 14 missions eoch.
Alternatively you may feel up to the challenge of the compaign option which throws you into conflict in all three zones. Here there ore a total of some 24 objectives overcome, ond because it's a real completed sequentially.
As you meander over to the hangar in your lycra jumpsuit you can ponder over a few other options. For instance, you can exomine your waypoints and determine the height, speed and target objectives necessary.
Also, you have the option to adjust the payload on boord your Tornodo, either lo suit the mission type or yourself. Alternatively you can think it's fair to bars of NATO has the reputation and engineers dike.
The Tornado, or Panavia Tornado GR.4 Interdicfor Strike (IDS) and F.3 Air Defence Variant (ADV), is a plane with one hell d a reputation and quite a long name (we'll just refer to if as the Tornado).
If you kept abreast of the war in the Gulf, you'll be more than owore of the role thot the Tomodo played in the first few vital doys.
The whole of the Allied strategy depended strongly on oir supremocy. To achieve this task, the Tomodo was charged with destroying all of the Iraqi oirboses.
As history now tells Ui, the Tomodo was OS good as its word and successfully implemented a most crucial port of the Allied offensive.
The reason it succeeded so effectively ond with so few losses is because of its ability to fiy mto enemy territory at high speeds, at such a low altitude, ond to deliver its lethd paylood with such devastating accuracy.
Included in Digital Integration's simulation are both of the aforementioned Tomodo types. The ADV is equipped as a long-range, long- endurance two-seat interceptor. It carries a special rodar equipped for air-to-air combat and a healthy stock of radar-guided missiles.
Its stable companion, the GR4, hos an altogether different role, and finds itself utilised for pinpoint bombing and recce work.
The first thing you notice about Dl's simulation is the size of the manual included in the packaging. Now, I'm not implying that the size of the manual improves the power of the game, in fact for from it, But, in Tomodo's case you hove a very comprehensive and user friendly piece of literature, which is concise ond informative.
This is indeed a good thing because the makers of F-16 Combat Pilot have come up with probably the most accurate flight simulator to appear on the Amiga.
Testimony to this is the fact thot the mission planning system Digital Integration developed for Tomodo has been authorised for service in the RAF by the Ministry of Defence.
Obviously it's not the exact same system and hos been developed by a company specialising in computer software for the military. But, the rudiments and specifications of the system are uncannily similar.
Being the war correspondent for Amiga Computing, I was given the uncertain job of flying this beast. The first thing that greets you in Tomodo is the options screen. Here you can choose to fly o simula- tor, select a training mission or fly in o combat mission.
The other thing you can elect to do is alter the preferences. Most objects and londmarks I_ can have their detail Oh no, it's Raymond again, adjusted. Unfortunately riding shotgun in the cockpit even on the A1200 to ochieve any speed in ploy you hove to play on the lowest detail level.
Before venturing into the cockpit of the real McCoy (please excuse the artistic licence), it's best to spend some time on the simulator.
You can select from 17 varying missions which should prepare you for real training flights. The real joy here is thot there's no danger Inside the cockpit oar brave pilot circles above the M2S in vain search of South Mimms services A couple of wild Tornados ( Iraqus flattenus) are caught here retataf on the grass, before embarking on t complicated nesting procedv* leave it all to your trusty pal the Amiga.
Another very nice touch in Tornado is lal explore mode. This feature allows you to dick i a waypoint and then zoom into areas of the i world.
This acts in the some monner os perhaps i intelligence network, which allows you | knowledge of the installations you're out 1 destroy and the defence systems which prow] them.
As o simulator, Tornado differs greatly to a»»- ] thing else you've probably flown before. In i sims you spend your time concentrating on ( ance of your plane with firing of munitions» ing os o second priority.
Tomodo's have a very smart auto-pilot t handles most of the flight far the pilot. In I apart from checking waypoints, take-off i landing the pilot does little else.
This means that in Dl's sim you spend much 41 your time as the navigator controlling your t guidance system. A typical flight might see : instigating the take-off, and then having t your wings bock to the right angle, sitting I and enjoying the ride until you're over the far Once near the drop zone you click on to I bombing screen and lock on to the target. I the target zoom facility enables you to get ( plete accuracy, then it's a question of' in Blackburn, Lancashire,..- Crikey, I thought John L be wrote that lyric.

LASTABILIT Y your munitions fall to earth.
Tornado is one of the most comprehensive military simulators ever to appeor on the AMIGA and it boosts some really impressive features.
Ifs an amazingly detailed piece of software.
For example, }ust lie in the real RAF, timing is of the utmost importance. If you are delayed while in flight and foil behind schedule there's every chonce thot you'll crash into a fellow Allied jet or at least ruin the mission objectives.
Not only do you get a most realistic looking, occurate simulator but you olso get afl the other more cosmetic touches like external and chase views.
On the down side, Tomodo's a little slow when it comes to screen update and probably b best suited to the high-end mochines.
This opart, Tornado is a very well accomplished title and one which will please flight fans the globe over.

So, following on from the successful Campaign 1939-1945, comes the release of Campaign 2.
The mast immediate chonge, whkh one notices immediately, is the fact that Campaign 2 covers all the main conflicts of the last 50 years.

Here you can olter any aspect of the terrain and odd or subtract other landmarks such as roads and buildings. Once oil the alterations hove been completed, battle can commence.
Due to such things as terrain, location and availability of forces, Campaign relies heavily on strategy. Indeed, one slight miscalculation on your part could meon the difference between ot your t overall strategy angle of the product.
The user interface is very similar to its older brother, and involves a main playing map ond a set of icons from which you control your forces and assess the strategies.

Campaign 2 also includes an extensive database of military hardware and equipment, oil of which is at your fingertips. This information can be used to your direct odvontoge when involved in conflicts, especially when engaging opposition who control superior forces.
Campaign 2 is a foirly well balanced mixture mihvm- of 3D arcade style shooting blended with a strong strategy opproach. While I enjoyed the bottle simulations and enjoyed controlling the various tanks, I can see strategy purists being put off by the orcode elements.
However, if you're a fairly well balanced human being I envisage that there'll be more than enough of both interest and of visual stimulation to keep you occupied.

Kings Quest 1 Kixx XL • £14.99 Being fairly young in gaming years, to me Kings Quest 1 seems very basic especially by today's standards. But I'm sure there are those of you out there who remember the good ol' days of RPGs, having to type in the commands for your hero, spending hours trying to find another word for "walk" because your computer is having one of his pedantic days and waiting an eternity for eoch screen to load when your chorocler mores from one orea to another.
Wet, I bet same of the more nostalgic among you are now saying "hey, I remember those old classics*' - ond Kings Quest 1 is difinitely one ol them.
Whether this is a good thing or not remains to be seen. I mean how many Myth Knight-type adventures do you really need? And when there are many other more spectacular examples of this genre domouring for a ploce in your games collection, is £14.99 perhops a little sleep?
OK, so maybe you might fancy this blast from the past, so what do you get for your £14.99?
Well, certainly not an original story line, thaf s for sure. The King of Doventry is on his last legs, and you, os his favourite Knight Sir Graham, need to retrieve three missing treasures to restore Doventry to its former glory and be rewarded with the crown.
For your money you gel some reasonable graphics, and some nice effects such as birds tweeting in the background, monsters splashing in the moat and waterfalls.
Controlling the game is relatively easy (getting your character to wolk is o little strange though). Type in whatever instruction you wish your character to carry out ond the computer will either let you do this or suggest that you fry something else.
And yes, we're oil done it boredom is looming so you try a few silly commands la liven things up (OK, so you don't, i'm just a little jtronge like that) but in this game you octually get o response. For instance, I tried eating the butterfly ond was met with some remark obouf them not tasting very nice.

If you're a real RPG fan then it's worth a look. The game isn't too bod, but at the moment there are for more original and impressive odventure games around, and it con't compete with today's high standards.
And I thought trolls were those cute plastic toys with pink hair and no wedding tackle, not some mercenary little devil who charges to get past his bridge I NULL vei wv»ru m ,ou uw: ve crost rw, bnSjo 0) Net ftr FREE, yoj **1 "Well Manchester City are beating Leeds S-2.
Prices art down on the stock market and there's a mad psychotic on board.” Cruise for a Corpse Kixx XL * £14.99 ff you've always wonted lo try your hand at being Miss Marple, Poirot, Clueso ond ihe like then now is your chance. Personally, I've never hod these worped fetishes but there’s no accounting for taste ond if this is your bog then Cruise for a Corpse is a must.
Right, setting-the-scene time: As Inspector Rooul Dusentier, you have been invited on a luxurious cruise, when all of a sudden your host drops deod. Coincidence, hey?
It always did seem a bit dodgy in these TV crime things that Miss Marple and compo- ny always 'just so happened” to be on the scene of these terrible murders, especially when most normal people go through a whole lifetime never even witnessing the slightest criminal odivity.
5a, in true Agatha Christie style, you need to gather as much evidence as possible and question other characters, piecing together the events and deciding who could have possibly committed this terrible crime.
By using a simple point 'n' dkk system you need to interoct with your environment, establishing links with the evidence you find in many of the different areas of the ship.
Eoch object found con be highlighted ond will activate a fist of possible octions, for example, you find a cupboard ond con "search, exomine or open drawer".
Travel around the many rooms by using the map or by guiding your character to go in the direction you wish.
So, that's basically the game. And good it is too! The superb graphics invohed plus the wonderful animated story sequence at the beginning moke the game visually stunning.
There have been some nice touches of humour added and the animation of the characters work well, especially when you get the chance to question them.
Sound effects are perhaps a little sparse in ploces but when they are used they create the atmosphere effectively.
The gomeplay does, however, become extremely frustrating after a while ond your going to need plenty of patience to get anywhere.
Another unnecessarily annoying feature is that octuol time CJ progresses through the game, but it seems thot it only moves on whenever you pick up another due.
If you go down in the woods today you can be sure of a big surprise - no, it's not wturt's in this guy's tights but a sorcerer who's going to put a freeze spell on you Therefore different events hoppen through the game.
Say, for instance, the Dining Room is inoccessibie earlier on in the gome but later on interesting dues can be picked up.
A good idea - but very frustrating!
All in all, though, it's an unusuol and enjoyable game.

When you reoch gronny go to the for right- hand corner of the room. The boss passes by you three times. The first time, he con be hit, but on the other occasions he turns his spikes towards you.
You can duck most of the fireballs, but sometimes he fires o low shot which you must jump over. When he is dead you will appear on lap of the oven, Walk past the level entrance and go into the deep freeze.
You must kill os many penguins os possible because otherwise they will follow you. You must use ihe tactic I mentioned earlier ta get past some of the higher walls. The snowmon ot the end of the level con only be hit when he's in snowmon form.
He’s invincible when he becomes a snowball. Watch for the icicles; if you stand between them you will not get hurt. If you kill the snowmon then you are aworded four hearts per life.
Oooooioo Pugsley Pugsley is in the top room. There ore three types of very harmful nasty on this level. The ball and chains can be dodged by jumping post when they are at the furthest point away from you. The nasty who fires the disk con be killed by jumping ot him when the disk hos past you.
Once he is dead the disk disappears.
Finally the chains of disks can be dodged by walking post when the chain hos just past you.
Some of these choins olso appear in the Gronny level.
You must also use the cannon bolls os launch pods for jumps, os in the other levels.
To kill the boss you must jump on the top of his head when the discs leave the screen. Be quick though, they reappeor very quickly. Duck in a comer the rest of the time, so you can't be hit.
Uncle Fester Go into the top left room. Uncle Fester is here, but the level is quite long. The jumping nasties are easy to kill - just jump on them when they oreot their lowest point In the cose of the flying ones, kill them when they ore o standard jump's distance awoy. The some goes for the unicycle boddies in the majority of cases, os well os for the green men, the Knights, who are unarmed, and for the men on green ducks with lances.
There ore also knights in this level who throw swords. Jump on them when they turn their backs ta you. The suits of armour con be dodged by walking post when the mace just passes you.
If a jump is required, then use a low-powered one, and woit until the moce is halfway through its swing, later on you will come across Book Worms. Use the unicyde tactic on them.
The paperweights ore best avoided, but if you must kill them use the unicyde tactic ogain, only this time be quick, because the weights move very fast. There are also spring- powered baddies, who follow you like the penguins.
Jump Ot them when they ore at the lowest point of their hop. You will come to a room with o train in it. The trock will kill you, os will the sharp cogs. To avoid them look at their positioning, you can either jump over them, or duck under them.
If you are going to jump over them then stand on the funnel of the engine. If you wont to duck, then stand on the lowest point of the train, and duck.
The witch is very hard to kill, you must jump on her when she's at the lowest point of her swoop. You also hove to use Fester as a jumping point by standing on his head. When she's dead, exit the level.
Morticia Go into the middle room and wail for the music to stop. The wall at the right side of the room drops and you can go in the door. In the third maze room go left until you reach a door.

All FOR JUST £279 Expert views on the latest applications ast time we looked at various ways of using Intuition, the Amiga's Graphic User Interface, from within Arexx. In particular we looked at RcxxARPLib library v3.0, as an excellent example of a utility that bnngs the machine's graphic system within reach of the user, with a minimum of fuss.
To recap: Intuition's graphics facilities cannot be accessed directly from Ahexx, so instead we launch a semi-independent Arexx unit (a host) which can access these features, This unit takes care of all the drudge work involved in opening windows, handling mouse-clicks, requesters, menus and so on. Our Arexx program then uses special commands that act on the host, in order to produce the desired results.
These commands are quite similar to their corresponding Intuition functions, so programming with a graphic library like RexxARPLib.libnuy is not too different from ’real" system programming. It is however much easier, since most of the 'overhead* of details is taken care of by the host.
In fact, all the programming that we do when we handle Intuition in this way is pure Arexx. There is no “real* system programming involved. The RexxARPLlb host adds an extra Arexx layer between us and the system.
This is in contrast to some libraries which allow you to make direct system calls, anti arc hence a little more dangerous to use. The trade-off is a small loss of flexibility and speed which should not bother most users.
Before we leave this subject I would like to dwell on a few things which may puzzle a newcomer, I assume that most of you reading this far have either already obtained a copy of RexxARPLib, or are planning to do so.
In any case it is a very worthw hile piece of software, and should be in the libs: drawer of all Arexx users. It should Ik- obtainable from most PI) libraries.
If you already own a book on Arexx. And you got a free disk with it. The chances are you already have it.
Make sure it is v3.0, since it has more features, and earlier versions gave problems with Workbench 2.x, I will use the ‘graph.re xx" example supplied as part of the distribution to illustrate. This example is good because it shows what can he done in a relatively small Arexx program, and also has lots of rcx m for improvement.
First a comment about the line that goes “ADDRESS COMMAND runwsh..." in line 79. As you can probably guess 'runwsh" is an external command, and you will not have it unless you are using Bill Hawes replacement mark is optional. You can also replace lines 8085 (wh wait for the port to appear before proceeding) with the t elegant: AMDS C0""AN9 'VaitforPort GRAPHNOST' but this is by no means essential. Then, to run die grap program simply make sure that the “graph.rexx" file is in i directory you have assigned as REXX:, or simply in your rent directory or path, and type a command like the below
at the Shell; rs 'CALL 6nph(1 Rue' ,100 -5 S ' *t)1 )" Newer users will notice that since our graphing progr has the suffix Vrcxx it can he called as a macro from will another program (in other words, just as if it was an Are function itself).
The next thing to notice (line 90), i the tw o IDCMP Hags w hich have been t This means that the window will noti our program if we try to either resize it close it. The code between lines 273-3 (especially between lines 273*287), sh how we process the loops which wait Arexx messages.
The functions used are found in th “rexxsupport,library". This general tec nique of waiting at a port for a messag should be totally familiar to anyone wa ng to do serious Amiga programming. W® have discussed it at length a number times already, and nearly all books Amiga programming describe it.
If you are programming in C Assembler, there are several other deu to attend to as well, but the Arexx versifl is nice and simple. You will also now for the Amiga Shell. Wshell. Wshell is not widely used ml UK, even though it is a very good program; on the other hi it is extremely popular in the USA. Bill Hawes, of course | the author of Arexx.
This command is used for launching the host asyt nously, and as you will have seen from Iasi week’s c can be replaced by the following line, which does the i job.
JtDtRESS (OMAHA f«ft ft '22'i || ’CALI CrtittMoitUGRtPHNOSTYGftAPHmT')* || '22'i It is essential to nuke this replacement if you want the | gram to work. In fact, if you ever have American .ARexx I ware that appears not to work, it is always a good idei I check that "mnwsh" is not being used, I have been caught out by this a number of times, dun in the above example, the code for the double quot marks ('22’x) is specifically included. This preserves the i tation marks when the line is passed to AmigaDOS. And I actual command line tlut is used reads: run ri “(ALL
CreiteHoitCSIAPHHOST' filAPBPOIT*)" You may already know that the last (closing) double Easie I AREXX B the formula to Ix* plotted is entered as a string of characters quotes. Then the program relic* on AkcXX s powerful PRET instruction (line s9) to work out the individual point program (lines 127-181). Secondly, if the window is steed down to its minimum possible size, the program crashes due to a division by zero.
On Workbench 2.0+ machines this problem is more marked, because the system 'zoom' gadget automatically sends the window down lo this tiny size. This could Ix- fixed by specifying a minimum size for the graph window, but unfortunately our library has no direct way of doing this.
These problems are the tradeoffs for using a user-friendly library like RexxARPLib. If you were using more ‘direct* libraries, like APIG or RxGen instead, both of the above problems could be easily corrected, but it may Ix easier to make other mistakes, especially if you are new to this. You pays your money and you takes vour chances... means that any function you use in your formula, must rfined in Arexx. Therefore, il you want to use trigonometric arithmic functions, you should make sure that you have a maths library (e.g.. Rexx.Muthl.iblibrary) installed. Since i library is usually
distributed together with RcxxARPLib, and
• same author, this should be no problem ere are two other minor
problems with this program and it Sructive to look at them.
They are illustrated in the aeeom- ; diagram.
Irstly, if the window is made fairly small, then the graph ws over the top bar of the window, This problem is not due ? The system, but merely to the simplistic algorithm used for the Th.s is not too serious in a simple demo program like this; it I have been cured by setting the GIMMEZEROZERO flag, but
* flag is not implemented in the library (il it was, it would
have I specified in line 91 along w ith the other flags).
Without it the window draws in all of its area, including tlx* top As it is. The problem must Ix- compensated from within the I hope that the main article has shown how easy It can be to implement an Intuition interface to your Arexx scripts. For a relatively small investment In time your work can look really professional.
Raphics still Creating independent executable utilities If you are creating utilities that get used by other people too, especially people less familiar with computers, you can help them avoid the CLI and use a friendlier mouse and requester interface.
In fact, for those special little hacks that lust need to get done, rather than requiring attention to speed or compactness, Arexx may be better than the so-called professional languages, since it allows interactive experimentation during the design process.
This is the reason why Arexx became popular among developers in the first place, even before it was embraced and bundled by Commodore.
If you write little programs like this, it might niggle you that they still have to be launched from the Shell, especially if you are trying to stick to a Workbench environment There are a number of things you can do to package your scripts in a more Workbench-friendly environment.
You can write a one-line AmigaDOS script that launches the program, and attach it to an icon using the IconX utility (refer to your AmigaDOS documentation).
Remember that H you are trying to lose the Shell you will also lose the ability to launch a program with parameters, and the program will have to receive all parameters while it is running.
If you do not like the inconvenience of having three separate flics (the DOS script, the Arexx script and the icon file) you could use the excellent PO program, IcortJ, which does the same job as IconX, but much better. And also lets you link the script and the icon into only one file!
IconX and IconJ still use a CLI window for output, but you can disable this by specifying the NIL: device instead of a particular window in the tool types.
Of course, you should only do this if your program has absolutely no text output, such as that due to the SAY instruction. Should you decide to use NIL: for your output - unless you hsve taken special steps - error messages will be lost too.
If you are using s 100 per cent Intuition environment, you must make sure everything (including errors) get handled by Intuition. For a beginner it is probably much better to have the CLI window present too, just as a safety backup.
Another possible avenue is the use of tha freely distributable program ‘ExecRexx(As you can see there is no shortage of helpful PO Arexx programs.) This utility will package your utility into a fully executable file, just like a commercial application. This also provides a way to hide your code should you be so selfish. Of course the Arexx installation must still be present for your program to run.
Finally, serious programmers, who wish to produce commercial or company in-house material using Arexx but want a little extra edge on speed, should consider the heavyweight RexxPlus Arexx compiler from the Oineen Edwards group In the USA.
In the second part of his Arexx graphics series, Alex Gian shows how sometimes Arexx can actually be better than low-level languages 'TKtUt Chd&i Some titles may not be released at the time of going to press.

Where to put the camera The line he first feu days of shooting arc going well and apan from the occasional hiccup, you're on schedule for glorious victory. Never mind that the
actors burst into hysterics during one of the film's more serious and melancholy moments or that despite constant coaching, the clapper boy keeps running in and marking the shot when the tape hasn't men rolled yet.
Yes, there's nothing quite like returning after a hard day's graft on the set and settling down into your favourite armchair and wondering when you're going to he rich and famous... to watch the rushes of the day's shoot.
Only a few glaring foreheads through lack of make-up glisten hack up to you front the glowing screen and the odd moments of convulsive camera shake as the lens operator gets his or herself ready for the shot half-way through the take.
Indeed, at the rate you're going, the local premiere promised to all friends and neighbours looks as if it could be a resounding success instead of a 20-minute cringe and squirm in the discomfort of a town hall chair.
With the shot lust decreasing rapidly every day. It’s good to keep in mind some of the classic film mess ups that can be spotted in many movies and television programmes today The prime candidate is continuity. If you're planning to shoot a large scale production for your next project then it is advised that a continuity person is used to keep track of any mistakes that could happen - clothes suddenly changing from one shot to the next because in reality, there was a two-day gap between each of them and die actors lorget exactly what they were wearing because they were too involved with
the script.
The way to solve this logistical nightmare is an observant per- Imagine a line drawn between two people.
The camera, while shooting a conversation between the two, must not cross over that line when cutting between them... i son with notepad, pen and a Polaroid camera with plenty of film There's nothing more accurate for practical and easy reference than a picture of the actors, location and so on.
Another problem encountered is falling Miind schedule - hassles often arise from nowhere tliat can be related to location and other factors. Sometimes, a shot takes longer than previously planned for. Or on the day you just have a better idea for shooting a scene.
Solving this dilemma involves the PA juggling the remainder of the schedule, slicing off times from different shots and the director seeing if there are any shots that can be dropped. The process of video making is about adapting and shifting within a given situation.
There are many things to learn to avoid or to do on a shoot which are ley mi by gening out there and experiencing it for yourself.
Practice makes perfect... ... or what to look out for as the rest of the shoot hurtles by in the fifth instalment of Adam Phillips’s vivid retelling of the videomaking story VIDEO It appears that they are talking to each Other because one head is on the right ol frame, the other on the left as you were standing there flicking between the two.., Tread carefully The line has been crossed and It now appears that they are talking from the same position and direction and perhaps to another person altogether because their heads are on the same side of the frame.
As each shooting day passes, its usual human psychology tor people to become tired and a little more edgy than usual. Mistakes can be made and accidents can happen through carelessness.
Your role as the director is to keep the crew and cast motivated through encouragement, organisation, keeping the pace of the shooting schedule as swift as possible and above all by letting people have fun with what they are doing.
There is little point of being a military dictator on set because it gnaws away at people's patience especially in an amateur group - until you're told where to go and put your opinion.
Apart from the mental, physical hazards must be kept to absolute minimum - a badly placed light could topple over and smash, eating unnecessarily into your already limited budget or in worst case scenarios, left by a particularly flammable object that doesn't take too kindly to being gently cooked for a few minutes. When on location in someone else's premises, make sure that everybody treads carefully - vases and other breakables seem to beg for the accident prone elbow to shove them off the edge of the mantelpiece into oblivion.
If using Blu-Tac or other adhesive substances, don't put it on wallpaper to be ripped off half an hour later with most of a Laura Ashley design attached to it.
Some of this may sound obvious but in the excitement of a shoot, there are times when even the professionals out there treat their locations as if they were in a dog kennel and not somebody's home.
When using large lengths of cable trailing across the floor where cast and crew are in risk of tripping up. Use gaffer tape to adhere the wires to the floor (remember to take it off gently).
Above all, remember to remain commonsensi- cal and don't take chances that could cause risk to either person or property.

Lot of new Amiga owners Will have joined us over die ¦ 1 Christmas period and there'll doubtless lx- i|uitc a lew L W ¦ Midi users looking for help w ithin these pages.
This being so, 1 thought I d kick off by telling you about a little gdgct that has proves! To lie immensely useful in my own Midi ftvek It's called the MA36 Midi Analyser and is made by a compa- Bv called StudioMaster (who are probably lx*st known for their iudio mixing desks).
One side of your Midi interface is not working.
Experienced users will know however that it is far more likely tliat either tlie lead linking the Midi interface’s Midi-out con- ncctor to the synthesizers Midi-in is faulty, or that the synth is set to a channel number which is different to the one the sequencer is transmitting its data on.
In short, your first instinct should lx* to check the most obvious and likely things first (including making sure that the correct Midi sockets have been used and that all connectors have been properly pushed in).
The MA36 Midi Analyser costs £32 including p&p, Details from StudioMaster on Tel: 0S82-570370. Trust me - if you have more than a passing interest in Midi then this little gadget is well worth checking out. I suspect that I'll be using mine for as long as I continue working with Midi - probably forever.
Magic Paul Overaa takes a look at a reasonably priced piece of Midi diagnostic hardware that is guaranteed to help Amiga Midi users avoid unnecessary fault-finding grief The MA36 is a battery powered unit which measures about 7 X 12 x 3cm, has an on off switch and two Midi sockets (Midi-in and a Midi-thru) As your Midi data passes through the unit the MA36 identifies the ncoming messages and displays die appropriate real-time informa- bon using two sets of LEI) indicator lights situated on the front panel The indicators on the left-hand side of the display provide details of the message types
being received while those on the right let you see what channels are being used.
Now Midi communications in general are relatively trouble-free, but occasionally the odd snag will anse and, particularly in the early days, it can lx: difficult to figure out exactly where things are going Wrong.
You might inadvertently connect up some leads die wrong way- round. Or use a lead tliat is faulty' (eg broken internally).
Your synth may not lx- sending die messages you think it is due Id the wav it lias been programmed or your sequencer may lx Midi ignoring certain types of messages without you being aware of it.
At times like this you want a quick way of seeing whether the expected Midi messages are being traasmitted or received and the MA36 is an ideal tool for these ty pes of operations, best of all it is one of those delightful little lioxes that you don't need to he a genius to use!
Supposing, for example, that you've got an Amiga sequencer program running with a Midi keyboard connected to it via a Midi interface*.
As various tracks have been played you've manually switched to different synth voices during each recording believing that this should generate the required program change Midi messages which will then be stored in your sequences.
On playback the synthesizer doesn't change voices and on examining the sequences you find the program change events aren't present in tlx* sequence data.
Is the program change data really being sent by the synth. Or are the messages arriving but not Ixing stored in the sequence? Just unplug the lead carrying the synthesizer's Midi messages to the Amiga, and plug in the MA36. Switch it on and manually change the synth's voice - you'll instantly see whether or not a program change message gets transmitted because the appropriate MA36 Midi channel number and program change lights will Hash.
If the messages arc l*ing generated by the synth then it's obvious that vour sequencer settings will need to lx- altered (perhaps the default behaviour is to filter out such program change messages).
If the messages aren't being transmitted in the first place then you’ll know that it is the synth settings that have to lx- changed.
Either way the MA36 can point you in the right direction instantaneously and needless to say that can save a lot of time and aggro because it takes the guesswork out of these types of fault-finding exercises.
As with most areas of fault finding, a bit of common sense goes a long way with Midi If, for instance, your synthesizer seems to trigger the sequencer when recording. Ixit on replay nothing seem to come back to the synth. Tlx*n one outside possibility would lx* that Amiga-64-Link

COMMS pulink.co.uk*. and then you're in Now you can do directories and CL) around the place as it the FUN FT system was your own. Except that being a huge Unix box there are up lo 250 other people doing live same tiling at tlx* same time with very little slowup.
You use the GET command to pull Files from FUNET and pass them to CIX. Then you use SEND to send them from CIX to your Amiga. The whole process is very painless and useful.
If you want to go into an Aminet sit. They have all tlx latest Files from Fred Pish, plus all the latest graphics demos, product information and support Files, everything you could wish for. Miss Chew, tlx World of the Internet is a big and scary plate, but it is wonderful tcx»!
• Finally for this month, to plug his BBS: Sanders writes be mail
has been piling up over the last fete months so I thought note
imuld he a good time to bate a quick question and ansuer
session. Firstly many thanks to all of your uho send mail and
letters in response to the column.
Your comments are alums read and noted, although no! Alums repliitl to. I tty to reply to all my correspondents on email if can.
Hit you know bow it is. Pressure of uork blab Nab Anyway, the first letter is from H Bond of York and he's into Radio Comms.
‘I would like to ask a question alxxit Radio Comms. I have just changed from die BBC to an Amiga A2000 2Mb. Now I always buy Amiga Computing, Ixit 1 haven't seen anything on Radio Comms. If it's possible could you give me some info on SSTV and FAX Transceive for the Amiga? Or is the Amiga just a games computer? I hope you can help Ixit the York area is very Kid for Amiga into."
Wake up and smell the coffee, buddy The York area bad for .Amiga info? Is it cut off by moats? Is it a space flight away from your nearest newsagent5 1 think not. Wlx-re have you Ixxfl since 1985?
The .Amiga is a leading comms computer, and I use mine for comms all the time. In spite of the fan you just insulted everyone reading this page. III cut you a break.
I just happen to have a disk full of radio comms software from the Internet, and just because I'm and old softie I II send it lo you.
Now don t let me ever hear such nonsense talk again You might also seek out an old copy ol The Radio Hackers Code Book by George Sass x n (published by Duckworth). Its an old Ixxik. And probably out of print, but you might Ix able to get it from Waterstones Btx k Shop (branches everywhere) through their second hand Booksearch Service.
Treading the boards
• P Chew of Somerset emailed nx to ask: “When you talk about PIT
what does that mean, and how can I use it?"
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and it’s tlx way all tlx Unix machines on the Internet send Files to each other For example, using CIX you might log onto ftp.funxt.fi, a very gtxxJ Amiga FTP site in Finland.
This isn't an international call, as the lines which connect all the sites on the Internet are owned by the Information Providers and the)' carry the cun.
.All you're doing is talking to CLX like you normally would (it’s very unusual to get something for nothing I think you’ll agree).
Once connected to FUNET you log on as “ftp" with a password of your Net email address, which in my case is ‘snouty@cix.com- Moving base By the way. Any fans of Guru-10 will tell you. One of the Amiga's most muscular BBSs is moving from its long held base in Scotland. From January 17 1994 the board will be moving to darkest Durham, and the new numbers will be: Guru-10 (24 hours, all speeds) Node 1091-378 9934 Node 2 091-378 9935 Here's wishing the sysop a pleasant and hassle-free move, and looking forward to more great stuff from this well liked bulletin board. Good news for Geordies, eh?
The’ll be smaller bills to dial th’Guru, ye'nah.
“The BBS I run is called Mostly Harmless, and it's a 100 per cent Amiga-only BBS. You won't Find a single file for any other machine on it. The BBS is running on an 030 882 33MH hased A500 w ith 0Mb of RAM and 22Mb of on-line storage.
* The board uses a great piece of software called Xenolink I have
Ixen running the Ixiard since January 1993 and have 22-4 users!
The lx ard is also pan of three larger networks, Fidonet
(2:251 ) 1.0), Amiganet (39:134 14.0) and Pafownet
(213:1020,7.0) importing over 125 messages from them all.
“Tlx system is running on an US Robotics 16.8K HST Dual Standard, which will be upgraded to 28.8 V'Fast when C1TT announces it in 1994. I give all users a generous 10.1 download to upload ratio, and I am strongly against piracy and similar things.
“Bad language is not allowed, and Files containing anarchist, hacking, commercial software or pornography are also not allowed. The number of Mostly Harmless is (F05 614824."
Thanks for that Ibis is in answer to all live people w!k emuiJed me and said they were just getting into comms and did I know any good numbers. This is not a phrase guaranteed to make you popular on-line, and it marks you as an annoying neophyte Hunt around for numlxrs. But never ask outright as it just annoys regular users. There are plenty of lists of BBS on-line so look around in the File sections of any Kurd. If there are any other sysops out there tliat wish to write in alxxit their experiences of setting up their own BBS. I'd be interested to hear about it.
Anyone set up a BBS and packed it in for some reason? Or do you run a particularly successful one? Why do you think jxople like your Ixxird?

having writing a program in Amos vl.35? I am trying to write :i MED Module Player program but as usual I jumped straight ¦ft) my code and started to write widiout thinking.
‘Everything went fine until I tried to write a file requester. Try try as I might I cannot write a fully working bug-free file uestcr. I can't or don't know how to select a file with the use. 1 can't get the computer to distinguish between 3 file dulc) and a directory (drawer). I have been experimenting Print Dir lntS("Ma) ) no avail. Is it possible to make a jxrint and dick file requester in

A Well, Thomas, you’ve got yourself in a right old pickle there. Couldn't you have started on a less difficult problem?
File requesters have been done by various people, and the I test one I know of is by Len Tucker, and it s 3D too. You might t in touch with Len at Amos PD Library, and they'll sort you out.
[In tlic meantime here is my thoughts on the matter.
Doing the buttons on die requester is easy. You define the bullions using Mouse Zones and when you click on them off they go.
I You can store die frame and die buttons as a IFF file, but this is itery memory costly, and so it would be better to draw the | requester on the screen and then erase it afterwards.
If you want to make your requester overlay the screen, you'll I have to open another thin screen for it. Of course.
Doing a directory and sorting it shouldn't present too many ; problems. Just put two windows inside the requester and do all ! Your display of files in another and input in the other.
Point and click is the hardest bit. The way to do it is to zone strips of die window and remember what is in each of those strips.
Stick each filename in an array and when you point and click diat value is loading into the load string. It's a bit hit and miss, and you'll have to liave a large array, Ixit there it is.
The simplest (and in code terms die smallest) way to do it is to avoid the point and click method aitogedier. Simply pnnl up a list of files on the disk in a nice sotted window, then invite the user to type in the requested file.
When they do and press Return, use the Dir and Exists file commands to find it and load it. Use error checking to check if die file

sent you off on a useful tangent, why not show me what you can

to the usual address.
Is there on the disk. Use Parent and DirS to nav igate around the disk.
AMOS Below is an example.. It doesn't do any file loading or amthing like that, but it shows you how to use windows on your Amos screen. Once you have that down you can use the DOS commands and ask for key presses, just like you would in an Amos program. Use the window’ commands to add another thin window on the screen for your input, filenames etc. Tile trick with Amos is to keep it simple.
Don't try to run before you can walk and don't uyr lo hit machine code until you know w’hich way is bitwise.

Kent BR6 OBJ Tel: Int +44 (0) 689 850770 CiRojpufln Software 1993 Rasputin Software b a trading subsdiary of Power Label Limited Amiga Computing March 1994 142 ome publishing in colour lias come a long way in the last year or so. Although the .Amiga has a good track record for displaying colour on the screen, the nology to transfer those colours on to paper, fabric or even I has, until recently, not been affordable.
Ink-based printers are today producing a quality of output t would have been unheard of a few years ago. Quality that is enough for many applications - coloured flyers, posters I the like. But colour can be an animal to work with, and if i are not careful it can eat you alive.
The first point that needs addressing is your Amiga itself. For ublishing in colour you will need lots of memory, a fast ssor at the heart of your Amiga, and a large storage device.
The reason for the liard drive and memory lxx st is because i can forget about printing HAM graphics, or even 256-colour es - what you need are 24-bit graphics.
Anything less than this quality of graphic and the professional utput you will be searching for will be lost, Photo-realistic aphics contain thousands upon thousands of colours, and die t Amiga file format for them is 24-bit IFF-ILBM.
The catch is that 24-bit graphics do not come in anything
* her than large and extra large, Sizes of l.Wb and 2Mb are
common, but images many times that size are frequently
¦encountered when working with graphics that have been [ vanned
at a resolution of 600 or perhaps 1.200 dots per inch.
So before spending all your cash on a colour printer, make [sure your Amiga is capable of dealing with the images you will I be wanting to print widi it.
LIMITATIONS It is also worth remembering that colour printing is not as | simple as printing in black and white. Low-end colour printer; j have the same limitations as mono printers when it comes to printing continuous tones.
Because these printers cannot print 16.7 million true colours, the graphic will have to have a dither applied to it so that the printer can use die three or four colours it does have to simulate the colours in the graphic.
Any graphic you print will be didtercd if it contains a colour that is not an exact match for the colours in the printer, so you are never going to get the same quality of graphic on paper as you see on die screen.
You know that every pixel on the (AGAI screen can be plotted in any colour from a 16.7 million colour palette, and up to 256 different colours can lie on the screen at once.
But a colour printer can print only three or four colours, so if there is (say) an orange pixel in your graphic it will have to simulated on paper by the printer mixing dots of three or those four colours.
Another reason for the difference between screen output and what you see on paper is that the colours you look at on die screen are being shined at you (luminance) and every colour is isamw [~Vj | Publishing In black and white is relatively problem free these days, and It doesn’t cost the earth to get professional quality results PUBLISHING composed from red and green and blue (RGB) components.
Colours in a printout are being reflected at you, and these are composed of cyan, magenta, yellow and (usually) black components (CMYK).
From screen to printer, the colours have to be convened from one system to the other, and this process is the bane of professional desktop publishers, To improve the colour quality of your printouts you need to fine tune the ‘colour correction’ - the process tliat attempts to produce on paper the .same colours that you see on the screen.
To do this you need to buy some printer software. Studio if you want very fine control over colours, TurboPrint Professional if you're not diat bothered lxit would like a little control, Before buying a colour printer don't Coloured by experience forget that they have a high consumables overhead. Look into the cost of the paper it requires, the inks, ribbons or toner, and all of the other costs that you may encounter in needing software to process the colour graphics you want to print.
Ben Pointer on how to create spectacular full-colour documents with your Amiga But the most important thing you should keep in mind is that colour printing technology has not yet reached the pint where photo-realistic printouts are affordable to the home user.
You can get some very good outpt indeed from sub-i1,000 ink-based and thermal wax printers, but if you are looking for a colour printer that can print graphics dial you cannot tell apart from a colour photograph, then you need something called a ‘dye sublimation” printer.
Ijke the pixels on your screen, every pixel (dot) a high-end dye sublimation printer prints can be a true colour, not dithered I mean, from a palette of 16.7 million colours or more. Sounds perfect, yes? But before you write that cheque, make sure you have six or seven thousand punds in your account to cover it.

Panasonic KX-P2123 and VideoMaster AGA Yesterday c§ heroes.*
1 57 A vault of video bargains Classifieds.. 158 New free ads
for readers A Hard tines*. 161A The best digitisers
rounded up A unit more office-friendly. Panasonic’s KX-PTIQ
sheet feeder can be fitted to further boost flexibility, the
dot matrix's main weapon against its inkjet foes. In the spirit
of further expansion. A 32k hardware RAM buffer can also be
added, at which point n becomes possible to download fonts to
the printer.
These will be used in the same way as the standard built-in fonts for maximum speed, and the option gives users the chance to fully customise their 24-pin pal.
Print speed is rated at a maximum of 240 characters per second (cps) while using the "micron" (15 characters per inch, or cpi) setting in draft mode, and 8Qcps in NLQ mode.
Neither of these speeds will mean much to the average user when he or she prints letter quality documents using different :: she.-i ions rin'.t - anasonic's range of dot matrix printers is as zxLj' extensive as anyone's these days, but the undoubted star of the lower priced models has to be the KX-P2123. A printer claimed by its distributors to be the UK's best selling colour dot matrix model.
In today's intensely competitive market, you have to offer one or two extras to come even close to that sort of claim, and the KX-P2123 has quite a few of them.
Bundled with Wordworth 2 AGA and offering a number of features some more expensive printers cannot match, the Panasonic is flexible and advanced enough to compete on at least equal terms with the increasingly popular bubblejets which.
Though capable of better output, can't be put to as many tasks as a dot matrix and are generally slower.
This is one of Panasonic's Quiet printers, but the noise when printing anything other than straight text with the built-in fonts (of which there are seven) is almost as noisy as any other modem dot matrix.
Fairly quiet printing can be achieved with simple documents, particularly in draft mode, but on the whole this is one feature which was a disappointment.
No other aspect of the printer's operation can be said to disappoint, however, and from easy set-up to using the extensive front panel, the user needn't sink into confusion.
An informative 200-page manual packed with easy to follow guides and more advanced information for programmers will sort out any mishaps which do arise.
The unit's width enables the user to print in the landscape orientation by simply inserting the paper side-on, and there is a bottom feed option for those using printer stands, making the Colour 24-pin dot matrix printer Supplier: Indi Direct Mail Phone: 0543 419999 Price: £209.99 Ribbons: 2 black and 4 colour for £70 fonts, but as an indication of general speed they are accurate.
The KX-P2I23 isn't the fastest printer in its price band, it is a nifty little mover all the same and when using the mor»J than acceptable built-in fonts, a large listing or multi-page ument can appear in a fairly short time.
Media costs, as with all dot matrix printers, are much than those of the average bubblejet or inkjet, and Panaswcl own estimates are that a black nbbon will produce three miJ lion Ascii characters in draft mode before expinng, the d ribbons offering abogt a quarter of this output This, of course, is no measure of hpw the cartridge out when printing graphics every day. But running costs si be acceptably low in even the most ribbon-killing conditions A problem all dot matrix users will find with their printt is that the print area - that part of the page on which thtj Panasonic's new colou
printer can add a touch of sunshine to boring black-and-white printouts. Plus more nem releases for this month reviewed by the AC teaml ited because of the manner in which the paper is pas: through the unit.
Rollers and the like have to have something to hold on to, and nothing can be printed in those areas. The result is th* the KX-P2123 cannot print in the first or last l.5in of the mar- print head can physically place a character - is necessarily lxr*4 isscJ |m. And must skip about two-thirds of an inch at the top of the page and one inch at the bottom, These figures are pretty standard for a 24-pirt, and the small gap left at the top of a page means that headers should never be affected.

Print quality itself is more or less what one expects from an affordable dot matrix these days. Clear and sharp text output is compromised by the dreaded dot matrix banding effect when printing graphics, though the latter is of little concern to those with general correspondence requirements.

STEVIE KENNEDY Upper Disk Tools Hard and floppy disk retrieval system for all Amigas (Workbench 2+) Supplier: Wheelbarrow Software. Broad Oak, Two Tree Hill. Henley-on-Thames RG9 1RQ Price: £19.95 Though few in number, the range of available Amiga disk recovery programs offers the user an excellent choice. Without exception. However, they all demand a certain amount of Amiga knowledge on the part of the beginner, even if this is just an appreciation of directory tree structures. Upper Disk Tools (UDT) is designed as a budget package which can be used by more or less the most inexperienced
user to retrieve lost deleted, or headerless files on any trackdisk device such as a hard drive or floppy disk.
The more experienced will find the program every bit as useful, but because of the way UDT is programmed it is difficult not to recommend it to first time hard drive owners, Supplied on a single disk, the package comprises two programs. Recovery and DSBackup, The former carries oul all scanning and retrieval tasks while the latter has the simple job of storing and restoring a hard drive's Rigid Disk Block.
Running from CLI or Workbench. Recovery offers four main scanning options such chat the user can decide to search for files which have been deleted, or lost, or headerless. Or even not deleted.
A second toggle switch jumps between the fast scan and deep scan modes and another makes it possible to lock out a drive while it is being scanned.
That's it. No funky or advanced features to confuse the user, just a straightforward, easily understood interface which so obviously does the job that the program's 50-page manual need hardly be opened.
Better still, though, is the way in which Recovery presents the files and drives it is being asked to scan. Once installed with the program's options set to the user's tastes, a drive icon with the name Recovery and the logical device name REC: pops up Bubblejet ink refill Cheap ink refill for most types of bubblejet primer Supplier: First Computer Centre Phone: 0532 319444 Price £8.99 per ink colour, or £26 98 (CMYK), or £6.99 (black only) Though bubblejet and Inkjet printers have become more and more popular of late, the cost of running the beasts has always been significantly higher than
dot matrix printers In the same market Replacing the original ink cartridges using the manufacturer's own brand can be an expensive affair, so step forward the re-inking brigade.
First Computer Centre's refill kit has basic common-sensc in its favour and it should be a straightforward job for most users to replenish their printer’s ink cartridges using this product Supplied in large plastic syringes, the three bask Ink colours (cyan, magenta, and yellow) can be bought separately or with a black ink syringe to complete the foursome.
In this way. Users of mono models can give their printers a transfusion without extra expense, and those who use a particular ink colour more than others tan buy the particular colour which is running low.
Refilling the cartridges can be a messy business, and a rubber glove is supplied for the task, which entails the use of a long needle-like nozzle with which the user squirts ink into the wells in each cartridge. Four or more refills can be made from a set of syringes, and as the official products often cost more than £30 for one refill set, running costs for your squirty friend can be reduced by two-thirds.
Users with money to bum or those who are completely mechanically disinclined will probably continue to pay over the odds for brand name cartridge replacements, but the rest of us would be mad not to consider a cheap refill.
Oh, and it’s more environmentally friendly too.
STEVIE KENNEDY A unique combination of sound and vision In VidvoMgstsr video editing tools which offer control over numerous cut. Paa and insert options. It's even possible to reverse selected secocn and insert single frames or live sequences where necessary.
Assuming you're happy with the video sequence you move on to the audio section and import a suitable soundtraa to accompany your imported video.
Fortunately provision has been made to define how mud RAM should be available for audio and video respectively. A11 result a little forward planning should ensure that enough spaa is available for both. Because each element is recorded se» ratefy, synchronisation is down to you. Like video, samples eno» mation. Unfortunately due to the design of the hardware and of course the demise of the A500, VideoMaster was left out in the cold. As a consequence HiSoft have now released an PCMCIA version which slots directly into both the A600 and A1200.
In addition, AGA support has also been implemented whkh now boasts 64 levels of grey for full frame mono images and Ham8 for colour.
However it must be stressed that still frames are as far as it goes concerning AGA support and full frame images. When it comes to sequential grabbing. 16 colours is still the maximum on offer, Assuming all the necessary connections are complete and a suitable VCR or camcorder is supplying the necessary footage, actually recording a sequence is very straightforward.
Basically you just select a sequence and hit Record, at which point images will be captured at 25 frames a second - or slower if you prefer - until either you terminate the process your RAM limit is reached.
Once safely imported you can move on to the excellent Amiga A1200 Beginner’s Pack A step-by-step introduction to the workings of the Amiga 1200. Its Workbench and more Supplier: Computer Manuals Ltd. Freepost, 50 James Rd, Birmingham B11 2BA Tel: 021*706 6000 Price £39.95 The A1200 Insider Guide was regarded by many rea ers and critics alike as an excellent choice for tti» novice to leam just about everything they needed u know to get started on their recently acquired box magic.
With a sequel published, the series has become - international best-seller and now with the release TheAI200 Beginner's Pack, it would seem that the sot cess story will continue.
The hefty box contains the first book, the follow , Hergesj HAM6~1 1 EH8 I I 8 I I 16 1 I 32 I I 84 I 1 128 1 I 256 I 1HAH8 I Last nergetto picture ?
On Workbench and can be accessed in the same way as any other drive.
On opening the drive’s window, any devices attached to the system (dhO;. Dhl; and so on) will be shown as drawers, and as soon as the user opens one of these windows the scan begins.
During scanning, a fuel bar indicates progress so far and time remaining, and as soon as the process is complete the drive window will display all files and drawers which fit the , search criteria. All the user need do now is drag the files he or she wishes to retrieve across to another disk.
Better still, the files can be accessed using word processors. Paint packages, and so on, as if they had already been retrieved so that the user can check which data is to be recovered before copying the files to another device.
1 In this way, the whole process of data retrieval is seamlessly integrated with normal Workbench operations with which most of us should be familiar.
If, for example, a selection of large image files has been deleted to save space, and the user later realises one or more of them is still needed, these "deleted" files can be archived from the Recovery device or backed up using a backup utility. UDT is therefore a much more flexible and friendly alternative to some of the more complex utilities on the market Speed is a second factor which UDT can claim in its favour. The method whereby only unallocated blocks on a hard drive are scanned - this is the most likely places for deleted files to be found - makes scanning a 120Mb partition a matter
of three or four minutes.
Deep scans take longer than the fast scan mode, but for most recovery tasks the more rapid method should do the job.
When speed of operation is allied to simplicity and the ability to retrieve files using Workbench, CU. Or a directory utility such as SID, Upper Disk Tools emerges as one of the friendliest hard drive utilities ever produced. Thoroughly recommended.
STEVIE KENNEDY Regular readers may well recall the original VideoMaster release which brought a unique combination of real-time sequential video grabbing and sampling to the A500.
Admittedly the sequences created were only available as quarter-screen greyscales with a soundtrack which didn't exactly set new standards for Amiga sound.
However when both elements were combined the end results were pretty impressive, especially when you considered that the lowly Amiga 500 was behind the resulting ani- Loads of options Updated version of this classic sound and video sampler Supplier: Phone: Price: AGA VideoMaster a complete repertoire o( editing tools to enable correct syncing witfi the video sequence. In addition it’s also possible to import previously recorded samples and add them into the action where necessary.
At this stage you’ll be the proud owner of what is known as a dip. Assuming you have the necessary RAM and want to take your creation even further, assorted dips can be assigned to specific keys within the program's internal video sequencer.
Istf ora can act uch ace
• pa-
• joy Thanks to the aforementioned sequencer you can append vari
ous types of clip together: even still frames can be added to
form even more elaborate productions. As you'd expect this
process requires dips to be loaded from disk and then assigned
to their particular key.
When your masterpiece is complete it can saved to disk and played back as a stand-alone movie. Better still the package also comes with a series of utilities, one of which enables the creation of an auto-booting disk which can then be shared with your friends or put into the PD.
Along with the implementation of AGA support come full colour stills However before you snap up a seemingly unbelievable bargain it must be stressed that grabbing still images isn't as straightforward as grabbing video sequences.
Firstly it’s essential that you have a VCR which has a high quality pause. Back in the old days all Amiga frame grabbing relied on first pausing the video and then applying three colour gels in succession to grab the essential RGB components.
Unfortunately VideoMaster's colour imports are a throwback to this rather archaic tradition. As a result the aforementioned red. Blue and green gels come as part of the package ready to be slipped in front of the lens at the appropriate moment.
If fiddling around with sheets of coloured plastic isn’t exactly your cup of tea there is an alternative in the form of a separate hardware colour splitter which removes the dreaded gels from the equation completely.
As you've probably guessed the aforementioned splitter doesn't ship with the basic system but can be ordered direct from HiSoft. Fortunately once connected the complete system can left connected regardless of whether you're using the splitter or just grabbing sequential greyscales. As you can see the end results can be pretty impressive and easily justifies the added investment in the extra hardware.
Basically YideoMaster is ideal for any fun-loving Amiga fan who isn’t desperately concerned about the ultimate in image quality As for colour, the results can be impressive, especially with the aid of the hardware splitter and a quality VCR.
Add all of the above to the excellent software and VideoMaster easily warrants its reasonable asking price PAUL AUSTIN i«, A1200 Next Steffi, * one-hour instructional video and four disks of PD and shareware software.
Crammed onto these disks are a word processor, clip art to incorporate into your art and graphics programs, a musk editor (with full instructions), a virus checker, Workbench utilities, a database, fonts and many more features useful at each step along the path to computer enlightenment Its recommended that you begin with the video and go from there. The 60-minute tape was produced by Australia'a leading training house and apparently is a best seller with the antipodeans down in the land of Ozzie.
The show takes you through the very basics of the machine - the keyboard, what the ports are at the back and is ideal for absolute utter beginners. From there, the two presenters move onto the Workbench to show how to copy and format disks among other functions.
For those who appreciate this kind of instruction as an alternative from the written text, there's a second volume on its way in spring and we’ll be sure to review it Whereas the video acts as an introduction, the books are the main bulk of the learning process and for the job they set out to do. These two are as good as you can get at the moment - simple to understand, step-by-step tutorials and clear descriptions make for easy reading and understanding.
Starting with the very basks of WIMP (Windows, Icons, Menus and Pointers) and mouse, the books chart the readers route through to the intricacies of introducing Amiga DOS.
Along the way, you’ll be taking a look at making music, printing documents, creating graphics, advice on which hardware you really need not just what the salesman tells you in the shop, and even video editing.
For all technophobes among you, The AI200 Beginner's Guide takes you by the hand and will soon have your fears replaced with an active curiosity.
At 639.95 this may seem a little steep but compared to games in the same price range, but you'll spend longer on this and there'll be a real sense of satisfaction when you come to the end of the pack and realise just how much you've managed to learn about the A1200.
Baby steps for absolute beginners and beyond - recommended.

Tel: 0778 393470 DCTV Although the Al 200 and A4000 have delivered infinitely better image quality, the prospect of upgrading from an old machine isn't exactly an appealing for many of the Amiga old guard.
Aside from the obvious financial implications, many Amiga fans have invested long and hard in their existing set-ups which may well be faster, bigger and in most cases better apart from the obvious lack of AGA support.
For static art the obvious answer is a 24-bit board which will provide graphics superior that of the AGA and still save money over an entire system upgrade.
This month the spotlight falls on hardware, hard copy and a recent software re-release However what about animation, after all 24 bit boards aren't exactly at their best when it comes to animation, and it's here where DCTV makes it mark.
Unlike all the other 24-bit systems, DCTV does not employ the quality offered via an RGB signal, but opts for the lesser talents of a composite signal. It's here where the compromise is made with numerous swings and roundabouts building up the overall DCTV picture - excuse the pun.
That of Ham8. For example an image of 736 x 580 at worst would require 426,880 colours, assuming every pixel was a separate colour. Thank God, this never happens - if it did epilepsy would probably reach epidemic proportions.
With the combination of greatly enhanced colour and its relatively minuscule file size animation is almost inevitably. DCTV attains its amazingly small file size by emulating a hi-res 16 or eight colour image which then has a special header appended which the hardware then decodes prior to display - thereby adding the additional colour information.
This decoding process is the systems only downfall as it takes time to decode each image, as a result slowing the frame rate of the anim. This is at its most noticeable when animating with the systems four bit plane images which at best manage around IsfpS. On the plus side, the alternative format of three-bit planes achieves around On the plus side the board’s composite only output is ideal for artwork destined for video. Numerous packages including VistaPro, Imagine, Real 3D and Lightwave all support the DCTV file format and will happily render an entire animation on demand.
Another huge advantage for the thoje making their first tentative and invariably expensive steps in serious Amiga art is the file size of DCTV images. Smaller files equal smaller hard drives equals less expense.
As a rule, a DCTV image is roughly a tenth of the Size of an equivalent 24-bit IFF. For those with limited means and storage this alone makes DCTV an attractive option.
On the display side the system again scores well with a maximum colour range around the four million mark.
Although this may seem rather lacking in comparison to the 16,7 million of a true 24-bit display, it is still far superior to Understanding Imagine 2 not just a good reference manual, in fact it's nothing short of the Imagine 2 blble. If you've not got this classic A4 ring bound masterpiece I can guarantee you'll never discover all that Imagine can offer The stylo Is friendly, the Information invaluable and the overall structure Is a lesson to any writing a manual - and better still you even get a couple of disks with examples and additional tutorials from the author Steve Worley.
Time spent with the manual win solve the problem? Unfortunately not. In fact the more time spent with tho manual the more likely you aro to become demoralised and eventually give up all together.
With a combination of complex software and a narrative rather than an informative manual, it would appear Imagine 2 needs nothing short of Knight in shining armour to save it from the scrapheap.
Thankfully there Is light at the end of the tunnel in the form of Understanding Imagine 2, This is For longer than most Amiga fans care to recall Imagine 2 and Real 3D have been battling it out for the top spot as the Amiga's premier ray tracer.
Obviously with the arrival of Lightwave things have changed somewhat but Imagine still remains one of the best ray tracing systems on any machine.
However although incredibly powerful. Imagine has a notoriously steep learning curve which often kills an enthusiasm stone dead well before even a tenth of the program's potential is revealed Ah yes. But surely a little extra Score: 100% AGA: Don't be silly Average price: £20 20 fps which with carefully anim design can stretched up to the 25 fps of video.
Alas here lies another compromise as the missing bit plane means a drop in quality as the system works with an enhanced eight colour hi-res image producing harsher transitions within graduated regions of colour.
However even with this slight compromise DCTV animation in three bit planes is still very impressive and is widely excepted as the next best thing to still frame recording thanks to its combination of colour and anim speed.
In addition, the system comes with one of the better paint packages which includes the ability to make 24-bit frame grabs from freeze framed video in addition to built- in DCTV to Amiga conversion.
All in all, an excellent investment and ideal for anyone who wants affordable animation without a complete system upgrade.
Score: 75% AGA: OK Average price: £375 Caligari 24 Although far from elderly, Caligari is well worth a mention purely because of the dramatic price reduction it's recently enjoyed. Initially the package retailed at a rather nerve-jangling £250 but thanks to increasing pressure Octree have obviously decided to take drastic action.
As a result the package now retails at just £99, which for a state-of-the-art package little more than six months old is unbelievable value.
Unlike most 3D packages, Caligari 24 is a modeller rather than a ray tracer which in practical terms means it's ideal for corporate logos, and architectural fly throughs, while lacking the photo-realistic appeal of programs like Real 3D, Imagine and Lightwave.
Basically if you're in the business of creating corporate graphics and more importantly animations, it's among the best in the business thanks to a combination of fast rendering and arguably the best spline-based animation system on the market.

there are a healthy profusion of digitisers on J A m the
market, the following selection are pretty JSb- much the best
of the modern bunch offering the abil- ity to grab video
images to any machine in the Amiga range.
How before delving into the assorted stand-alone digitisers, it's worth mentioning the alternatives, which in the case of video digitising means multimedia boards and graphics cards such as the IV24 v2. FrameMachine and of course DCTV.
Obviously the first two boards are targeted directly at the high end user base who require more than just grabbing, and have a bank balance big enough to support their aspirations.
Although both the IV24 v2 and FrameMachine offer all kinds of additional features, it must be stressed that grabbing doesn’t suffer - in fact both boards offer exceptional quality, easily on a par with chat of VlabY C Although DCTV isn't In the same league - due to its composite rather than RGB output - it can still provide impressive results. The only limitation is that static or paused images are required in order to grab. As a result a good VCR is essential.
Video Master AGA Video Master IS without doubt the most unique digitiser in the round-up. In fact the program presses home the point by giving itself the title of "the integrated multimedia video & audio sampler” - otherwise known as a demo generator Basically this is a real fun product, which offers a unique approach to the tricky problem of importing audio and video simultaneously, It hasn't been designed to set new standards for image quality - or even sound quality - but the combination of the two as a 25fps quarter-screen greyscale is great fun and an absolute doddle to do... In fact
it’s amazing how much and animation can be generSit back as Hard Times explores where best to invest within the complex and competitive world of video digitising ated on a standard machine either direct from live video or via pre-recorded footage.
Fortunately HiSoft have spotted that there's more to life than quarter screen animation and as a result they've also added a full frame grabbing option which operates in the same manner as DCTV requiring a good quality still frame pause prior to importation.
Colour also hasn't gone unnoticed and as a consequence a good old-fashioned set of colour Filters come as part of the package enabling pseudo colour grabs to be generated from a colour video source.
If fiddling about with filters isn't your cup of tea. HiSoft will happily supply an electronic colour splitter to make the process a little less arduous. As you've probably spotted from the title, AGA is supported with 64 greyscales and 256 colours plus all the usual array of standard Amiga modes including our old friend HAM.
The system also has added appeal for the hordes of A600 and A1200 owners who now have their very own version of Video Master which plugs directly into the PCMCIA slot.
Basically a great product for people who don't take their Amiga or themselves too seriously and simply want a fun product that offers a unique combination of audio, video and occasional colour.
Vidi 12 24 RT This one may well ring a few bells with the Amiga old guard who've seen the Rombo Vidi range evolve repeatedly over recent years. Now in its latest incarnation. Rombo have added real-time grabbing to the equation - hence the RT. Like all the other packages AGA support has been adopted in both the 12 and 24-bit forms of the system. Like Video Master, the hardware connects to the Amiga parallel port but unlike VlabY C. Sequential grabbing is not supported.
Vidi in its various forms is strictly a single frame instantaneous colour system. However unlike the majority of the digitisers in the article Vidi does offer a reasonable collection of image processing tools in addition to basic frame grabbing.
The various tools are split into four distinct sections, namely grabbing, mixing, editing and the carousel animation system.
Basically much of the software remains essentially the same as its predecessor with the odd AGA addition plus a few new processing features.
If you're after a combination of basic image processing mixed with respectable 12 or 24-bit frame grabbing, it's well worth closer inspection.
1 VlabY C & Vlab VlabY C is arguably the best Amiga digitiser that money can buy - depending on your system. As the name suggests, the board will support both a composite and Y C signal.
However in order to use it you need a desktop Amiga such as the A2000, 3000, 4000 with a Zorro slot free for tho card itself. In addition, an 030 CPU with 3Mb of RAM is the realistic minimum for effective application - especially if you're working extensively in 24-bit- It you can supply all of the above.
VlabY C offers easily the most powerful, flexible and expandable grabbing environment money can buy. With some of the opposition offering equally impressive single-frame grabbing, this may seem a rather sweeping statement.
However it's only when you consider expansion that all becomes clear.
Firstly, an impressive range of software and hardware supports Vlab directly.
Notables include Harlequin and Retina, both of which have chosen Vlab as their preferred grabber add-on.
On the software side both ImageFX and ADPro support Vlab, as does TVPaint.
Better still, VlabY C also offers a unique feature which enables full-frame sequential 24-bit grabbing via its IFR option. And to be totally automated you can even add the AirLink infra red controller which will rewind and play your VCR for you.
Unfortunately both of these features are only available on the Y C version of Vlab. However for those who don’t have a desktop machine there is Vlab Par which connects to the parallel port of an Amiga. This, however. Isn’t available In a Y C format and as a result can't employ IFR or AirLink.
